A highlight from Ep382: Don't Be Afraid Of Giving Value
"Don't be afraid of giving value. Don't be afraid of giving actual tangible value that somebody can grab hold of and do something about because that's how people are going to share things. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster? It's your host, Adam Adams. And we are going to be talking about not being afraid of giving value. Here's the thing. I had a conversation recently with somebody who's starting a podcast and it's for their business. And he and I were talking about what he could talk about. And we're outlining a bunch of ideas. He's a coaching client. We're outlining a whole bunch of ideas that he could do episodes on. I started by asking him, what does your perfect listener need to know? What is that perfect, perfect listener? The same person that you would actually do business with. They would hire you and you would be able to support them. They would be able to go further and faster. The investment with you would be nothing to them compared to how much they would make because they did that. I asked him, who do you serve? How do you serve them? And what do they need right now? And he starts giving me some options, some ideas. And one of the ideas, he was like, oh, well this. And I was like, that's great. And he goes, yeah, but I mean, I can't give him all of the details of that. And I'm like, okay, I knew where this is going, but I go, why not? What do you think is going to happen? And he goes, well, if they know all of the things and they don't need to hire me. And so I got to hold some things close to my chest. You don't freaking need to keep anything close to your chest. I wanted to say, I didn't say it like that. I should have slapped him up the side of the head, but he was virtual and I couldn't. So he goes, yeah, I've got to keep some stuff close to my chest. That's private stuff for my coaching clients only. I thought about it for a second and I go, what's the worst that could happen? A couple of them use it and they get successful. Why not share it on your podcast? And I mentioned, I've had other coaching clients in the past few years. I've been helping people with podcasting since even before my company launched in 2019. And I let them know that, hey, when I was doing my real estate podcast that I sold, I sold it back in 2020. When I was doing my real estate podcast, I gave all the goods and people came to me in droves. They flocked to me and I made a lot of money. I was able to raise a lot of equity for my real estate deals and find great deals and be awarded or win deals that I wouldn't have because I gave the good stuff. And I'm talking to this guy and just letting him know that don't be afraid of doing that. That is just some fear that's inside of you. And I thought to myself, because this wasn't the only time I ever had this conversation, I've had this conversation many times, especially when I'm being interviewed on other people's podcasts. When I'm being interviewed on a podcast about podcasting and people are asking me like, you know, what should I do? I'm constantly saying, don't be afraid of giving value. Don't be afraid of giving actual tangible value that somebody can grab hold of and do something about because that's how people are going to share things. I'm thinking right now in my head of this guy named Dave Ramsey. Dave Ramsey, he's kind of famous for teaching people that debt is bad. All debt is bad. I don't agree with it and that's okay. But he tries to share like the paid off mortgage is the new status symbol of wealth replacing the BMW. So he basically says and I hear the wisdom in it. He's basically saying like, instead of having a house that's not paid for and a BMW that's not paid for and now you're shit out of luck if the economy goes bad, pay off the house and maybe just have a Toyota for a while, have a Honda for a while and then graduate to a BMW when you can pay it all in cash. So you don't need that status symbol. Well, Dave Ramsey gives all of the goods. He gives all the goods on every freaking time. He basically only has four things to talk about, but he talks about them in full depth each and every time. And what that means to you is if he's making millions and millions of dollars, if Adam's able to do just fine and work only a few hours a week and have good revenue coming into the business, if other people are able to do this and give away the goods so that you have to keep things like my coaching client said close to the chest, nothing, give out the goods. It will come back to you probably tenfold. So today, this episode is about not being afraid of giving value to anywhere, anyone in anywhere, give the value, even if you're not getting paid for it. And it's going to come back to you. By the way, this was a pretty short episode. I have a lot of these podcast episodes that are solos that might only be three, four, five, ten, fifteen minutes. And that means what I'm asking you to do is rather than turn us off, check out the episode that I've got queued up for you. I'll see you there. You're not alone if you're ready to either get your very first affordable microphone or if you're ready to upgrade your equipment to some legit podcasting studio equipment. Because on all of the forums over the last few months, I'm seeing this all the time. Even my own personal clients that work with my team, they're ready to get that next microphone. They're asking us for it. Additionally, when I'm on discovery calls with potential clients, they're always asking for this stuff. Hey, what mic do you recommend? Hey, what lighting do you recommend? What webcam should I be using? So many questions. And so what we did, my whole team has put together a PDF so that if you're one of those people who is looking to either get your very first affordable microphone or if you're ready to upgrade your equipment to more professional podcast studio equipment, whether it's soundproofing or whatever, we've got you covered by going to growyourshow .com forward slash PDF, and you can download the PDF for free or right there on the webpage is everything that you would have and you don't need to download the PDF either way. Just go to growyourshow .com forward slash PDF, which will put you to the podcasting that me and my team have personally vetted. I'll see you on the next episode.

Ann Carden Describes How a $15 Box Started a Thriving Business
"Was this business that started it all? Well, it's probably not anything anyone expect would expect. But there was a little store in town. The craft industry was exploding across the country. This was like in nineteen ninety one and the craft industry was exploding. And I had a box of stuff. I had always been kind of crafty and creative. And I used to use it like when my son was born, I fixed up his nursery and I did cute little things for his nursery. And I was just always very creative like that. And it was a good stress reliever for me. So I loved being that doing those things. And I had this box of stuff. It was probably worth fifteen dollars. And I thought, I wonder if I can make some of this stuff. And there's a little store in town. And I know that she does consignment. You can put things in there. And if she sells them, you you get a she'll take a percentage, but you get the money. So I put together some little crafty things and called her and asked if she would put them in her store. And she said, sure, bring them in. I went in and took him in and she looked at him and she said, I'm not sure these are going to sell, but I will put them in. So after two weeks, nothing sold. So I went back in and I said, tell me what's selling. And she said, these rabbit dolls, these crafty rabbit dolls that people used for decorations. And I thought, oh, my gosh, a rabbit doll. She said, I can't keep them on the shelves. And they were beautiful. They were very pretty. And I thought, I have no idea how to make a rabbit doll. So I went looked at a lot of patterns and just got ideas from all these different places. And I borrowed my mom's sewing machine and I set out to make my own rabbit doll. I made a couple of them, took them into her store and she said, oh, my gosh, these are going to these are going to blow off the shelves. And they did. So long story short, that turned into a global business that I did for seven years. I was able to employ a lot of other moms, which was awesome, because now I got to help out a lot of other families. So they were doing doll parts and sewing dresses and doing all of these things. I did more than rabbits as time went on. But there was a Noah's Ark fabric that came out during that time. And I got the idea I could do a Noah's Ark line. I could do lions and giraffes. And and so I created all my own designs. And before long, they were all numbered and signed. And I had people waiting for the collection. And I remember shipping. I remember the day I got an order from Iceland. It was just it was so cool. They ended up on the cover of an international craft magazine, which they were selected. I couldn't buy the cover. So it turned out to be a really incredible business. And I had stores. I was in stores. They weren't my own stores, but I had space in stores all across the country. Many, many locate many states. And yeah, I was running a manufacturing company out of my home to make a long story short. Unbelievable, unbelievable. And I get it because I remember very my mom started her own business making. Do you remember those big thick blankets that had the pictures all over them with like the fringes? So she made jackets out of those. Oh, yeah. She just needed a little bit more for my age. Yeah. And my aunt at the time was making kilties like for like golf shoes. And so I just I but I love it because you took it to another level and I love it's beautiful that it got to, you know, help employ others. But like, man, what a rush for it to just explode the way that it did. And then you I mean, you've had you've built seven successful businesses. Yes. So I have a media company and then I have my coaching and consulting business. Yes. So yeah, but you know, the thing is, it's so it's so funny, you know, when you're in it, you're just doing the thing, right? You're just trying to make it grow and you're just doing the thing. And and I was just doing what I knew to do. It's like I was putting one step in front of the other. And OK, this is taking off. I'm making more money. How can I do more? And that was just really how I did things. So it wasn't like I now I teach people have a plan, have a strategy. I didn't have that. I just I'm going to do this and I'm going to see the drive. Yeah. But, you know, the interesting thing is and again, that was over 30 something years ago, I was making a six figure income, not revenue, but a six figure income. I mean, it literally it changed our lives.

A highlight from Visa Goes Deeper on Stablecoin Settlement
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Wednesday, September 6th, and today we're talking about big news from Visa. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. So yesterday's episode started with a very brief discussion of a nominally big thing for Solana that didn't push the price at all. What we're going to do today is talk about that thing, which is much bigger than just Solana, and also talk about what it says about the general state of the cycle that we're in. The specific news was that Visa has announced an expansion of their stablecoin settlement to include the Solana network. Visa will now settle some cross -border payments using USDC on Solana. The payments company began experimenting with USDC for treasury operations in 2021. The pilot began with Crypto .com's crypto -linked Visa cards issued in Australia. Visa set up a cross -border settlement channel with Crypto .com, which allowed the exchange to finalize customer purchases using USDC over Ethereum. The expansion of the USDC settlement pilot is being done in collaboration with merchant acquirers WorldPay and Nuvei. This will allow merchant customers to select USDC stablecoin settlement as an option instead of receiving fiat currencies. Now the upgrade to Visa's systems is entirely a back -end improvement, and it's designed to cut settlement times and costs. In a statement, they explained that at the moment, quote, But what they don't see is that the funds used for their purchases need to move between their bank, the issuer, and the merchant's bank, the acquirer. This is where Visa's treasury and settlement systems enable the clearing, settlement, and movement of billions in transactions a day, making sure the correct amount in the preferred currency is received from the issuer and sent to the acquirer, end quote. Now currently cross -border card payments rely on the SWIFT system, which can take several days to finalize. By switching to crypto rails, merchants can receive cleared payments much faster, which is obviously a huge boon when it comes to cash flow management. Visa head of crypto Kai Sheffield said in a Twitter thread, WorldPay and Nuvei enable card acceptance for a diverse set of merchants across the world, including a growing number of merchants interacting with the blockchain and crypto economy who may prefer to use USDC within their corporate treasuries over traditional fiat banking. Visa can now settle these payments to WorldPay and USDC, enabling WorldPay to more flexibly manage their own treasury infrastructure and route the USDC directly to their merchants with less worry about wire cutoff times and bank holidays. It's still early days, but Visa has already settled millions of dollars of USDC over the Ethereum and Solana blockchains between our clients. We are committed to continuing to innovate around how we move money and provide our clients modern options for settlement, end quote. Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire noted that the paradigm shift enabled by using USDC as a settlement currency and not just a payments currency. Also on Twitter, he wrote, One of the things that I am most excited about regarding this new expanded use of USDC by Visa is the fact that USDC is being used as a core settlement layer within the Visa network, a more real -time, global alternative to traversing SWIFT and various ACH rails. More often than not, everyone focuses on the purely retail uses like the Shopify USDC plugin. When in reality, USDC is a generic digital dollar protocol that spans from retail to wholesale across commerce and finance. Our existing mental models for payment systems are dated. An internet -native digital dollar and stablecoin network protocol scales from tiny micropayments in P2P transactions to multi -hundred million dollar capital market transactions, end quote. Now, while Visa has been experimenting with faster USDC settlement on the card issuer side of the business for some time, this pilot extends that functionality over to the merchant settlement side. Now, to bulls, this move seems like a significant step forward in the adoption of crypto networks as a global public and neutral end -to -end value transfer system. Visa currently settles $11 .6 trillion in global payments annually and this settlement use case is precisely what research firm Bernstein envisioned when they made their call in August that stablecoins could become a $2 .8 trillion market over the next five years. So in terms of community reactions, obviously for the Solana bulls, this was a huge deal. Anatoly Yakovenko, the founder at Solana Labs said, I want Solana to be so cheap that it saves Visa money to use it over its own in -house infrastructure. And I want Solana to be so fast that it improves the user experience as well. Lily Lu, president of the Solana Foundation said, We've had a long -standing thesis around payments being only possible on Solana. Fifteen years into the conception of cryptocurrencies and the gradual progression of this use case from forum post to proof of concept to DeFi adoption, Solana meets users where they are today. Click a button, something happens immediately and with infinitesimal cost. This is going to be demonstrated at scale with Visa building on Solana. Now, others focused on the significance from the Visa side of things. Terry Angelos, who formerly worked on crypto at Visa said, Visa is an authorization network and not a payment network. Merchants pay for real -time authorization, security and guaranteed payment. Settlement post -transaction is when Visa moves dollars from issuers to merchants and that can happen on Wires, ACH and now crypto rails. Nick Carter writes, This is a huge deal. Writing on the wall, stables would become de facto interbank settlement solution via card networks. Even my non -crypto fintech friends are fired up about this. This is one of the most important news items of the year. Caitlin Long puts it even more catchily saying, Visa debanks the banks by going around them to settle US dollar payments outside the US banking system and outside traditional USD payment rails. Pilot programs for now, but… Dennis Porter, the CEO of the Satoshi Action Fund wrote, Bitcoin -only people will hate this but it needs to be said. Stablecoins will play an important role in the next wave of financial technology. The dollar isn't going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, stables will strengthen the dollar. Banks will adopt quickly. Now I could and maybe will at some point do an entire show about why Bitcoin and stablecoins aren't at least in the short term competitive. One offers an improvement on the system that exists. The other offers an opt -out of the system as it exists. In other words, they are far from incompatible. Finally, Mert, the CEO at Helios Labs says, The Visa news today isn't just good for Solana, it's awesome news for all of crypto. Slowly the Overton window is shifting and more financial activity is moving on chain. So this must have caused a huge price run up, right? I mean, this is big news. Nick Carter called it one of the biggest pieces of news of the year. Alas, Solana was up just 2%. Crypto trader Gumshoe wrote, In a bull market, Solana would have jumped over 100 % with all the crazy news of the past two weeks lol. The other news that he's referring to was Solana Pay integrating with Shopify two weeks ago. Trader Horse writes, The sole response is a good indication of the current market environment. Imagine what this post would lead to during any other point. Instead, price is listless. This is not a supply issue. We just don't have any buyers. The news should excite long -term investors, however. Teams that are still grinding in the bear get rewarded in the bull. Now I weighed in on this yesterday as well, tweeting, People looking for prices to move up on good news right now are totally missing the part of the cycle we're in. Until new buyers come in, it's sideways or down only. Doesn't mean good news isn't still good. It's just not going to show up in price. Now in the particular case of Solana, there is a general and specific context. The general is what we just talked about and where we are in the cycle. The specific is that Solana is dealing with the overhang of the FTX estate having $1 .1 billion worth of Solana in their coffers right now. That's something like 13 % of the total supply. Reinforcing the contrast between news and energy, even as all this was happening, Solana's daily active addresses fell to around 204 ,000 at the end of August. That's the lowest level for the metric since the block began tracking it in late 2020. Rebecca Stevens, data analyst at The Block Research, put the reasons pretty crisply saying, The Solana ecosystem was already seeing a decline in active users prior to the collapse of FTX, but the fact that the blockchain had such strong ties to the exchange and Alameda Research hurt its reputation a bit. The SEC alleging that Sol is a security also hurt the token's price and has caused it to be delisted in the U .S. on several platforms like eToro and Robinhood. Now overall, the block's monthly exchange volume measurement hit its lowest point so far during this cycle in August. Just $423 billion in volume was moved through centralized exchanges last month, falling below other recent low points in May and December. The lack of trading on exchanges was punctuated by Binance falling below $200 billion in monthly volume for the first time since November 2020. Now this lack of activity extends to Bitcoin as well. Dylan LeClair tweeted, As a percentage of circulating supply, Bitcoin moved in the last 30 days is at an all -time low of 5 .4%. Meanwhile, spot volumes are at levels not seen since 2019. Saying this market is thin currently is an understatement. Reflexivity Research co -founder Will Clemente writes, Crypto aggregated trading volume is the lowest that it's been since 2020. Google's search trends for Bitcoin and crypto at multi -year lows. Realized volatility, implied volatility, weekly Bollinger Bands, all near record lows. This is exactly what apathy looks like. Now Kaleo pointed out that although this is brutal, it's not necessarily out of sync with the cycle. He wrote, Centralized exchange volumes haven't been this low since December 2020. Daily average volume is down from $164 billion at peak to around $13 billion now, a 92 % decline. For reference, the peak in the 2017 bull market was around $28 billion, with an average of $2 .5 billion per day six months prior to the 2020 halving, a 91 % decline. So after all of the centralized exchange trauma we've seen over the past year, we're still in line with a similar trend to what we saw last cycle, despite how rough it may feel. Still, I think it's worth noting comments from Kobe given during the height of the bull market. On the Up Only show, he said quote, You need to have the same level of interest when everything is really boring. The main way you have to make it is to try to perpetuate your interest through the boring bit. The boring bit is where the opportunity is. Now of course, one of the things that people anticipate could bring some new blood in is that fabled Bitcoin spot ETF. So an update on that front as well. After winning a comprehensive victory in court last week, lawyers for Grayscale have written to the SEC to ask them to get moving. According to Grayscale, the court ruling was so comprehensive that the SEC has quote no grounds for treating the Grayscale Bitcoin trust differently to Bitcoin futures ETFs. They wrote quote, Now the letter anticipates a change in tactics from the SEC who may choose to introduce new reasons to prevent Grayscale from converting GBTC into an ETF. The letter stated that quote, Grayscale pressed home the importance of resolving this conversion in a timely manner given the number of rival products clamoring for approval. The letter noted that the SEC may have now exceeded the time allowed to refuse an application, reserving their right to argue in court that the conversion should now be deemed approved. Grayscale argued that quote, Finally, they requested to meet with the SEC as soon as possible to discuss the path forward. James Safart, ETF analyst at Bloomberg said, Now even as the ETF situation works to be resolved, there is clearly some jockeying for positioning as it relates to renewed or new institutional interest in the crypto space. As a for example, Coinbase has launched a new crypto lending service aimed at U .S. institutional clients. The service looks to fill in the gap left by the Genesis and BlockFi bankruptcies. An under -the -radar SEC filing made last week disclosed the program already has $57 million in client funds. According to a person familiar with the service, clients can lend out their crypto assets on an over collateralized basis to Coinbase. The firm can then extend those crypto assets as loans to institutional trading firms. This is essentially the same business as prime brokerage in the traditional finance space. Now, unlike the canceled Coinbase Lend program, retail customers are explicitly excluded from this service. By catering exclusively to accredited and institutional clients, Coinbase is able to offer the service under less onerous regulatory requirements. Honestly, one of the big takeaways is just what a big gap has been left by Genesis in the U .S. institutional environment. However, as you'll hear in an interview coming out later this week or maybe even later today with Hani Rashwan from 21Shares, that institutional interest may be far less gone than it might currently seem. However, that is going to do it for today's episode. I appreciate you listening as always, and until tomorrow, be safe and take care of each other.

Have a plan is the message from FEMA weather as and other natural disasters are increasing. This year FEMA along with local agencies including Montgomery and Arlington County are among those focusing much of their attention on older Americans for preparedness planning. The American Red Cross says older people are more vulnerable after disasters because often they suffer from chronic conditions and they take medications. They also have a higher reliance on the need for caregivers. They may be also more socially isolated.

A highlight from Guest Host Kevin McCullough On Our Fight To Save America From Destruction
"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. This Music. is your source for breaking news. And what to make of it all. This is The Mike Gallagher Show. The thing about Karen Bass, just a couple of years ago, she was talking about how great it is that Los Angeles is a sanctuary city. So this continues to be the political own goal of the decade. Well, Biden said COVID shots are coming back, like it or not. People want someone they know can already do the job. President Trump has done the job. We have the best economy of my lifetime. Everyone was doing better. The border was secure. And now, in the ReliefFactor .com studios, sitting in for Mike today, here's Kevin McCulloch. It is an honor to be back for my good friend, Mike Gallagher, a colleague here at the Salem Radio Network, and also someone who cares very much about what is happening to our country. Kevin McCulloch is my name. You can find me on the Salem News Channel and many of the same radio stations on Saturday nights at 9 o 'clock Eastern with that Kevin show. If you're local in the New York area, you can listen to me on AM 570 each weekday afternoon at 3 o 'clock, AM 970 the answer each weeknight at 7. And we have a lot of fun. My handle across all social media at that Kevin show. Please be in touch with me. I love to interact on the top stories of the day. We've got a lot to get to this morning. Yesterday, one of the judges in the federal trials that is the former president is going to face in upcoming months set the trial date for March 4th. This is in the special case against President Trump that Jack Smith is bringing the U .S. District Judge for the District Tanya Chutkin. Remember that name? It will live in infamy. She's rejected a proposal by the Trump defense team that the trial began in April of twenty twenty six long after the election. She instead set the date far closer to the one proposed by Smith and the government who wanted it on January 2nd. And if you happen to be a criminal attorney, please dial me eight hundred six five five Mike eight hundred six five five six four five three. I'd love to have some validation on this, but one of the one of the broadcasts I do here in New York for AM 970 the answer focuses on litigative issues every Thursday night. And we just talk legal stuff. I'm not a lawyer. I'm fascinated by the law. I think that lawyers that that proves a faithful service to their clients and to the government are are valuable people in our society. But I think it's interesting to see this chess match being played to the public in a way as though lawyers wouldn't know what was really going on here. So let me kind of break it down for you. You had the indictment and the the perp walk and the cuffing and the fingerprinting and all the stuff that they wanted to do to try to embarrass forty five. They had their moment in the in the sun to do that. And then they come back and they say, oh, we're we're going to go to trial quickly. We're going to put you on trial on the second of January. And Jack Smith said, Judge, you've got to put them on trial on the second of January. And the Trump team said, no, we're going to ask for twenty twenty six. And the judge comes back and says, no, no, no, no, we can't give you that much time to prepare. We're going to make sure that you're ready for trial by March the fourth. Now, of all the dates and all the calendars in all the world, March 4th is the day that she just happened to land on. I'm just I'm just looking at this calendar and I'm just seeing of all the choices and options that I have here. And you know what? I'm going to go with March the fourth for no reason whatsoever. Except that March 5th happens to be Super Tuesday. And there's however many states, twelve, fifteen, sixteen states in it. I forget the number. It's one of the most important days of the election calendar. This judge, Tonya Chutkin and and the prosecutor in the in the in the Georgia case are both embarrassing themselves. Fannie Willis and Tonya Chutkin are both embarrassing themselves because their behavior begets kindergartners on day one of preschool. Like it's they're not even in the in the class yet. And they're already like goofing around. Here's what happens between now and March 4th of next year. The Trump team will do a number of things in all of these cases, but they're going to they're going to be filing mainly, especially in the in the state cases for a couple of things. They're going to want those cases moved out of the Georgia state realm and they're going to want to put them into the federal realm because the federal system will be one that's easier to to manage and to and to kind of go through. But beyond that, there are a boatload of motions that will be being entered into the record between now and then that they are going to do everything from filing a motion to dismiss to filing an extension for discovery. And let me just let me just tell you on this on this alleged interference in the 2020 federal case that Jack Smith is doing out of D .C. It's my understanding that there are more than 12 million documents. That will be entered into the evidence, and this Tonya Chutkin joke, this this judge, this this joke of a judge laughed yesterday when told by the Trump team that for proper discovery to be allowed, there's no human way that they could sit and read 12 million pages between now and March 4th. And she just kind of giggled like, ha ha ha. Well, you've already you already know a bunch of the stuff that's in there. Ha ha ha. Friends. We talked about this yesterday. The left is trying to systematically dismantle America and they're starting to let the evil be seen. Right. That was my theme yesterday on the show. We talked about it for three hours. This is another example of that. There's there's this kind of open knowledge that this judge is dismissing. The normal procedures that what would be accustomed to any other criminal defendant, they're not going to allow President Trump. Why aren't they going to give him the same rights and the same protections that they would give a serial killer or a gang banger or anyone else? They're going to have to. And if the judge continues this kind of embarrassing behavior, chuckling at the people that are involved, chuckling at the requests that are made. She's there's a there's a there's a circuit court that oversees this court. And those judges have authoritative roles that they play over the over the sitting judge. That's that's in the court. That is Tonya Chuck him. And if they don't want to be embarrassed, if they don't want to have their circuit embarrassed, they will advise their underling to comport herself differently. But I just find it amazing that we're supposed to buy all of this. This is this is the great lie. They sit here and they pull this stuff and they and they set these unrealistic dates. And by the way, I'm going on the record. They would not have made a January 2nd start date. They're not going to make a March 4th start date. You had it is law. His he has a right to an informed defense. He has he has a right to have his defense know every piece of evidence that's going to be introduced as it's introduced before it's introduced. If the if the prosecution has had twelve point eight million documents in their possession and the defense is just receiving and being made aware of what they're going to introduce. They have to have time legally to not only understand what every document says, but they have to process it and comprehend the implication of what that document has to do with within the case. And then they have to have the right to prepare proper defense of those facts. This isn't a kangaroo court. We're not in a kangaroo nation. There are still laws. And I know these Obama judicial appointees and the Biden administration and the Justice Department all think it's hilarious. What's going to be hilarious is when they get their teeth slapped back at them by their their their upper judges and maybe eventually the Supreme Court, because they're such lunatics with how they're proceeding at current pace. Eight hundred six, five, five, Mike, eight hundred six, five, five, six, four, five, three. Take your calls right now. Eight hundred six, five, five, Mike, eight hundred six, five, five, six, four, five, three. Do you think that Trump will be in court on March 4th, the day before Super Tuesday next year? By the way, some of his fellow Republicans think that he will be. Chris Christie, the shameful, shameful behavior of Chris Christie in recent days coming right back. It's the Mike Gallagher show. Don't go away. Left leaning activists are attacking Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Read The People's Justice Clarence Thomas and the constitutional stories that define him on sale now from Regnery Publishing. You know. As central banks in countries like China, India and Australia begin transitioning to a digital currency, the Federal Reserve has been contemplating the same for the U .S.

Officials could even prohibit you from purchasing certain products or easily freeze or seize part or all of your money.

"Hello, and welcome to the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast brought to you by Swan Bitcoin, the best way to buy and learn about Bitcoin. I'm your host, Alex Danson, and we're excited to announce that we're bringing the Cafe Bitcoin Conversations Twitter Spaces to you on this show, the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast, Monday through Friday every week. Join us as we speak to guests like Michael Saylor, Len Alden, Corey Clifston, Greg Foss, Tomer Strohle, and many others in the Bitcoin space. Also, be sure to hit that subscribe button. Make sure you get notifications when we launch a new episode. You can join us live on Twitter Spaces Monday through Friday, starting at 7 a .m. Pacific and 10 a .m. Eastern every morning to become part of the conversation yourself. Thanks again. We look forward to bringing you the best Bitcoin content daily here on the Cafe Bitcoin Podcast. Hope you guys are doing well on this fine Monday morning in the late summer. I think we've got plenty to talk about here. We've got Bitblock Boom recap. We've got a guest later on in the show. Len Alden's new book came out. We've got a handful of news items to talk about. But really, I'm just glad to see Peter's on because Friday he promised us that he would be doing his own personal rendition of Richmond, north of Richmond. No, don't know it. Don't even really like the song, to be honest with you. Peter, Peter, I mean, now you're just playing with us. I'm sure your vocal cords are just not warmed up yet, so we'll give you a minute or two. And go fuck yourself. It's never too early for a G .F .Y. from Peter. So, hey, let's do a Bitblock Boom that offers on the table, though. Peter, any time you want to bust out your rendition, feel free to. We got Tomer, Dom, Mickey, Peter. Great to see all you guys. Jacob, of course, as well. Out of everyone who was at Bitblock Boom out of this crew. Mickey, were you there? No, unfortunately not. I feel like I'm the only one that was at the event of the people on stage. But if anybody in the audience was at Bitblock Boom and would like to share, you know, their their experiences and how good of a time they had, it'd be great to have you. Personally, it was an amazing, amazing time. I mean, just getting to see everybody and and having like technical conversations with people, meeting all the people that enjoy the shows and people. It was just it was just like one of the best experiences I've had. And it just seems like every time you're going to one of these events, all the people that you met from the previous one, it's great to see them. And then you get to meet new people and they just get better and better every time. So I really could not have had a better experience of Bitblock Boom, but I did miss you guys. That's awesome, Jacob. Thanks for that. And did you happen to hear roughly how many people go to Bitblock Boom? I'm sorry to say I've never been to one. I'm just trying to get a rough sense of the size compared to some other Bitcoin conferences. Lynn's on her way up. I think she'd have a better idea than I would. But I would say it's similar to Pacific, like fifteen to fifteen hundred, like two thousand maybe. It's not the biggest. So it's really like intimate to where, you know, if you do want to talk with people, then, you know, you're going to be able to to do that at one of these conferences like Bitblock Boom. Right. Right. Yeah, I think most people prefer that. And I do see Lynn up. So good morning, Lynn. Would love to get your thoughts on this. From what I hear, most people prefer that smaller setting. Fifteen hundred, two thousand, three hundred, you know, three thousand, something like that rather than twenty five thousand to thirty thousand at some of these other massive conferences. Lynn, good morning. I would love to hear your thoughts. Anything you want to share on Bitblock Boom if you were there? Yeah, good morning. Thanks for inviting me up. I was there and I really had a fantastic time on a number of levels. I mean, I just jumped into the conversation, but I think the comment was made that the size of the conference was smaller, which it was just I mean, it was the perfect size. I mean, I certainly didn't meet everybody there, but, you know, it's great to interact with a lot of people. You see people, you know, you get to meet a lot of people. It's an easy forum to meet people just the way Gary organizes a lot of those social events that are more interactive. But one of the things that I noticed is this is a long standing Bitcoin conference. And I think I'm hearing some comments that a lot of the conferences tend to have the same the same sorts of topics on stage. So you end up hearing things that you really don't hear. I mean, that you really hear pretty much every day on Cafe Bitcoin or on podcasts. And so the content isn't as fresh. But I found the content at Bitblock Boom this year really, really, really mind expanding. Like Bob Burnett's talk, I think in particular, I want to shout that out, was great. Just talking about, you know, block size space and just giving a lot of things to think about. I thought Natalie's talk was fantastic, too. We don't often hear her as a speaker. We hear her as an interviewer. And I really enjoyed her conversation just talking about a media perspective and things that we all can do to kind of contribute to the space.

"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas show. Do you like your gravy thick and rich and loaded with creamy mushrooms? If no one was looking, would you chug the whole gravy boat? Chug, chug, chug, chug. Stay tuned. Here comes Mr. Chug -a -lug himself, Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome back. In case you didn't know, there's a film. If today's Friday, it's going to be in theaters tonight. If today's not Friday, it's going to be in theaters, you know, like tonight, except not Friday. It's called The Hill, and it's starring Dennis Quaid. I don't know what more you need to know. It's starring Dennis Quaid. It's in fifteen hundred screens across the country. That's a lot. We have the director of this film of The Hill with us, Jeff Celentano. Did I pronounce it close? Celentano, Celentano, Celentano, Celentano, Celentano. You grew up in New Jersey, correct? I did. OK, so that's why you got a name like Celentano. You know, that's just it's an Italian name. But you comes with a terrible name. I want to I want to ask you. This is a film about you grew up in a small town, in a small rural town in New Jersey. A lot of people don't know that those exist, but they certainly do. If you know the state of New Jersey. But this is a film about someone who grew up in a rural town, small town in Texas, and his name is Ricky Hill. That's why the film is called The Hill. And again, it's starring Dennis Quaid as the father of this athlete, Ricky Hill. But I just kind of ask you right out of the gate, Jeff, how did you find your way to directing this story? Because this is a story that I had not heard until I heard about this film. Yeah, well, none of us heard about the story. Ricky was an obscure guy who never really told many people about his story. Dennis Quaid, when I hired him to play Ricky's father, said, I just read the script. Is this true? Did this kid really do this? This is like a miracle. I said, yeah, he did the impossible. And he said, how come I never heard of the story? And I said, well, there's so many stories out there nobody's ever heard of. And so that's why we're telling this one. It needs to be on the big screen. So my brother was in a hotel room. I'm sorry, in a hotel lobby. And he was talking to somebody in a meeting, and he overheard Ricky next to him, the real Ricky Hill, talking about his life story and how he couldn't find a director that he liked. He had been through like 40 directors, and he never felt they had the right honesty and heart for the film. And my brother leaned over and said, excuse me, sir, once he was off the phone. This is my brother on the phone. He's your director. Talk to him. And Ricky was like, my brother's very aggressive. And Ricky talked to me and we just bonded. And he said, you have to read my story. I'm going to send you the script tonight. I read the script. I cried my eyes out through the whole thing. I was so touched that I've said this so many times, but it's the same every time. It got in my heart and it's not left even today that I had to tell the story. It was like I was on a mission. I just never gave up. And so that's how it ended up getting me. But it took 17 years to get it funded. I had been funded four times. The money fell through every time. And the last time it fell through was six years ago. Dennis had already been hired and I thought we were going to lose Dennis. And he called me and said, listen, I love this story. It's the best story I've read in 20 years. I'm on for life. As long as you can find a time span on my schedule, I will do the film. Well, now, for people who are tuning in and saying, what is the story? Tell us, what is the story? Because the story is about a little boy, eight years old, who was very poor. His father decided to be a minister and a preacher and travel around the country. And they got kicked out of a couple of churches because his father was very adamant about no smoking in the church and treating the church badly. Ricky would be very poor and go out on a railroad track and hit stones all day. But he wore bag braces because he was crippled from the hip down. So he just got so good at hitting rocks because he was so poor, he had nothing else to do. He hit two thousand rocks a day. And of course, that transferred into baseball. He wanted to play baseball. He was addicted to it. And his father would not allow him to play baseball. He was like, you're going to be a preacher? Because when Ricky was eight, he started preaching to the family, imitating his father. And he got so good at it that he could recite the Bible back to front. And this is not a faith movie, but it's got so much faith in it because of the father. It just translates into that. So Ricky, behind his dad's back, ended up becoming an All -Star player in high school. And right when the scouts were about to look at him, they came to the stadium to look at him. He trips over a sprinkler head and breaks his ankle.

"In the market, but you're not seeing it turn the S &P or even the socks in the way you want it. In fact, you're seeing just the opposite. Now, this could just be a one day move, right? But let's see what this one day means for investors as they think about their AI bets moving forward. Right. Or it could be a resumption of the previous three weeks in which there was a lot of weakness for the big winners, notably the big tech names. And of course, as we head into a seasonally weak period, there's a lot of questions about whether this is just kind of a precursor of what's to come. There you have the closing bells and it is read across the screen here. And we're pretty much at session lows for the major indexes. The S &P losing ground here by one point four percent. The Dow Industrial is losing one point one percent. The Nasdaq, the big loser of the day in terms of percentage of decline, one point nine percent loss. And the Russell 2000 small cap companies losing about one and a quarter percent. All right. Well, let's get a check on some of that. We're into it is doing in the after hours right now, having a little trouble pulling it up. But it is a reminder that earnings season is by no means over at this point. Guys, we're still getting plenty of companies reporting, including Splunk yesterday and into it right now. The company is saying that it sees fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share of a dollar sixty five, beating estimates of a dollar forty six. The company is seeing first quarter adjusted EPS of one dollar ninety four cents to two dollars. So that's within the range of estimates. That was one dollar ninety seven cents in the after hours. It is not moving. Fourth quarter net revenue coming in at two point seven billion dollars. That did beat estimates of two point six five billion dollars, moving a little lower unchanged in the after hours. Yeah. Stock is up on the year. It's up about twenty eight percent. So again, maybe in this environment, investors expect a little bit more. Talking about the outlook. Twenty twenty four revenue of fifteen point eight nine billion to sixteen point eleven billion. The estimate is fifteen point nine six billion. So it does look like it's giving some upside in terms of that.
A highlight from Bitcoin News, 3% Inflation Target, and BRICS Expansion? With Dr.Jeff, Joe Carlasare, and The Caf Bitcoin Crew - August 24th, 2023

Good morning, everyone. Peter, Mickey, good morning, guys. Thanks, everyone, for being an early joiner on a late August morning here. I know people have a lot to do in the summertime, so thanks, everybody, for joining. Peter, how are you doing? Good morning. Doing well. It's another good day watching what's going on with the BRICs and their conference in South Africa. That is one of the many topics we'll be chatting about. Mickey, how are you doing, man? Good morning. Hey, good morning. 7 a .m. here. Just finished my exercise for the morning. So channeling my inner Steven Libka finished 8 ,000 steps before 7 a .m. today. So it's a good day. Dude, that is impressive. You're an early riser to have already done 8 ,000 steps by 7 a .m. Good for you. Steven would be proud. Well, hey, before we start getting into some topics, I just want to let everyone know today will be a little bit shorter of a show than normal. We got some people traveling to Bitblock Boom, the Bitcoin conference put on by Gary Leland in Austin, which is a fantastic conference. If anyone was thinking about going to a Bitcoin conference, we definitely recommend that one. It's a great one. If you're just thinking about checking out some of the content from it, we definitely recommend you do that as well. And speaking of that, we're going to be streaming some of the content tomorrow. So there won't be a normal Cafe Bitcoin show tomorrow, but we're going to be streaming some of the Bitblock Boom content because, again, that's just a great Bitcoin only conference. So definitely check some of that out. We'll talk more about that as the show goes on. All right, where to start here, plenty of topics that I think we can just do quick hits. Peter, I'm proposing that the Fed's new inflation target be 2 .17 percent instead of 2 .0 percent, and I wanted to know what you think about that. I think it should be 3 percent or whatever number they want it to be, because that's just what they do. There's no rhyme or reason as to why they've decided that 2 percent is the benchmark other than, I guess, they figure that they can steal that much money from people. And, you know, it's not really noticeable, of course, once you live as long as I have and you've been stolen from it 2 percent a year for the last 50 years, it's very noticeable. Yeah, quick shout out to some mental math, which I'll be honest, I don't do as much anymore. I used to be good at mental math when I was a kid in school, but with calculators and Excel, I am not nearly as good at mental math as I used to be. But there is a good one known as the Rule of 72, and this is how long it takes your money to either double or to lose half of its purchasing power. So if you get 1 percent returns per year, you double your money in 72 years. If you get 2 percent returns per year, you double your money in 36 years. That's a 72 divided by 2 and so on and so on. And it works the other way, too. So if you have 2 percent inflation every year, you lose half of your purchasing power in 36 years. If you have 3 percent inflation per year, you lose half of your purchasing power in 24 years, which I guess is approximately a generation. So at 3 percent inflation, you lose half of the purchasing power in 24 years. And that's somehow supposed to be positive for all of us. I will shout out my own tweet this morning, if you guys can bear with me here for a moment, but I just was looking at Krugman and Furman and these guys talking about how they think they've arrived at 3 percent being like a better inflation target. And they're pretending like there's some some real explanations, some real rationale. And, you know, they show a bunch of charts and stats. And I can't help but think that that's probably what the Catholic Church sounded like back in the fifteen hundreds when they said, no, no, this is why you have to pay for your indulgences. It's, you know, we're not making it up. It's not just for you to line our pockets. It's, you know, it's what the religion says that, you know, this is for your benefit and we're just telling you how it is. I honestly think it's that much B .S. that they talk about 3 percent being the quote unquote right inflation target. I just don't know how they do this stuff with a straight face, quite frankly. Not not only that, John, but but what are they basing that on? You know, I mean, they've continuously taken the, you know, components out of the the tool that they use to measure what the real inflation rate is. So, you know, to to adjust it for whatever their narrative is. And so, you know, I guess the real question is, how do we in in a in a world economy and in in, you know, in this kind of complex world, how do we really, you know, measure what real inflation is? Because I don't think the numbers they're using are real inflation. And I also don't think that the other extreme people who say that we're in a, you know, 25 percent or 20 percent inflation era, I don't think that theirs is correct either. So that that's my question is, is how do you actually what metrics would would we really need to use to get a real idea of what inflation actually is? I'm going to throw my thoughts on that. I think it's actually impossible and I'm not being overdramatic. I think it truly is impossible because there is no such thing as a singular number that objectively represents, quote unquote, prices.
A highlight from Real Estate Agents Complete Door Knocking Guide (Part 4)
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. We are back. And actually we are picking up where we left off a week ago when we were talking about door knocking. And I have to say, Julie, the door knocking podcast series that you wrote has become one of our biggest downloaded and listened to podcasts. And now it's quickly becoming one of our biggest downloaded and viewed YouTube videos, which it is something door knocking and learning how to be a proactively generator is definitely something that everyone wants to know how to do, needs to know how to do, because really a lot of the passive lead generation stuff from social and from buying leads, it's had its day in the sun, all these passive ideas and as the economy changes, as the housing market changes, people are realizing they are going to have to actually get off their dust and learn how to be proactively generators and had to have real meaningful conversations with real estate perspective, real estate clients. And in doing so, and I know you're reading this as well from our people who email us and text us and all the rest of it, they're having more expensive, more expensive, right? They're having more success from that experience faster than they thought. They that they had no clue, frankly, that they're going to be able to generate so many leads so quick. Yes, absolutely. And here's the thing. This doesn't cost you anything. Right. And at the same time, there's so many added benefits. For example, of course, your skills are going to increase your ability to have really great, valuable conversations about real estate. That's going to get better and better with every conversation you have. Of course, we all know that most real estate transactions do indeed come from a face to face conversation about real estate. Most people will choose to work with the first person they talk to about their situation. Your job is to be that person. And another great byproduct of this, Tim, is that it creates a lot of lead follow up for these guys where also you have a high likelihood of setting your next appointments from. But, you know, really, all those things are the practical, tactical reasons you want to, you know, door knock or do any kind of proactive lead generation. But I'll say the biggest psychological mindset reason why is because a lot of agents right now, most agents right now are looking for a sense of direction. They feel the markets change. I mean, really, I don't know. Did I tell you this, Jules? They're originally they were expecting there to be five point five million home sales this year. And now they're actually projecting. I believe it's NAR that's projecting now it's only five million home sales. So five hundred thousand fewer home sales. But that's actually a million home sales fewer than last year or something like that. So you're talking about a very significant number of real estate agents who won't be doing real estate transactions at all. And a lot of the agents who are listening to us right now and are in the business have only been in real estate, frankly, for the last five years or less. And if you've not sold real estate for more than really 15 years, you've not sold real estate during a transitioning market, you're at an advantage and you're at a disadvantage. And the disadvantage is, you know, or the advantage is you don't have the battle scars, you know, so you don't have the bad memories of what that market's like. But the disadvantage is, is you don't know how different things really can be and how quickly they can change. And if you've been in real estate only in the really the last five or even 10 years, you've come up during a very sort of bizarre time in the real estate industry because there's been this advent of all this lead buying and team building and branding and marketing. These things really have hit their peak. Why? Because there was so much money that was in real estate, so many agents looking to spend money, so many agents not really understanding how to decide what they should spend their money on, if they should spend their money at all on anything. And so as a result, that's brought in a lot of these businesses that were venture funded. And, you know, I don't want to bore all of you, but the moral of the story is a lot of those businesses are washing out a lot of these ideas that never really worked in real estate, even in the best of times, are really going to prove out not to work certainly in a changing market like we're experiencing now. That's the reason every single one of you need to accept the fact that we're in a new market. And that's fantastic. There's going to be fewer transactions in most of the country. And that's actually not a bad thing either when you take into consideration that your biggest competitor, for the most part, isn't the seasoned grizzled veteran. Your biggest competitor is the other agent who just got their license or maybe the other agent who the seller might know because their kids played together or just some social connection. But as those types of agents who aren't really serious about the business get out of the business, the ones that have skills are actually they're absolutely going to clean up. That's the reason that during a market shift like this, you always see. Well, you see one or two things. You see new kings crowned, new queens crowned in the marketplaces. Those are the agents that were able to adapt to the new market, learn the new skills. They didn't wait around for the market to change back the way it was. They said, this is what it is. I'm going to make the most of it. And then sometimes you also see the agents who are at the top of the market, who are the actual dominant agents. They actually start to get more market share. So you could. But here's where it's interesting. It's fascinating. I have to be careful saying this because it offends some people, but it's still true. A lot of what happens in a market like this are the dug in grizzled teams and brokers refuse to change. They still try to carry their old way of thinking and their old expense structure into this new market. And when they do that and the new market essentially doesn't allow them to, frankly, make it work cash flow wise, they go out of business and they have to hit a hard reset on their personal and business lives. I'll suggest if you're in that bucket, if you're in that bracket, if you're realizing that you're essentially trying to model your business after something that worked in the past market, you need to take a seriously hard look at adapting very quickly to the new realities. Otherwise, frankly, you're going to most likely suffer needlessly. Don't wait to learn what I just said is true. Get ahead of whatever is going to happen next, because, guys, a million fewer transactions is a million fewer transactions. That's a lot of transactions that are leaving the marketplace. And a lot of you, again, have been buying your business and the quality of the leads. Have you noticed the quality, especially the buyer leads has really gone to pot? Well, that's just going to get worse as well. So please, please, please, please don't wait to experience hardship to realize what I'm telling you is true. Take action on all that now. So we're going to get back to door knocking. And this is the last part of our four part series. So, Julie, point number 13. Yes, part four point number 13 post on social media, especially on YouTube, a video of you starting to prospect a specific neighborhood. This should be you in front of the neighborhood sign or something recognizable about where you are. Share some fast facts and explain that you'll be there this afternoon, connecting with all of the neighbors and answering any real estate questions. Give your mobile number posted on all of your social media. And of course, you can refer to our podcast series about how to utilize videos for real estate agents. Now, let's I'm going to talk real briefly about this. First of all, YouTube is now migrating towards trying to be a little tick tocky. And so is Instagram. In other words, it's starting to give more priority to short videos, which is perfect because short videos don't have to be really produced at a high level. It's great. And what Julie just said, why are we telling you to do this? Because what's going to happen is as you're door knocking and getting to know the neighbors and essentially building your centers of influence and past clients, they're most likely going to do a little bit of googling on you to find out what your your story is. And so if you created a lot of these little short snippet, you know, tick tock type videos and they're on Instagram, they're on YouTube and maybe even on tick tock, what's going to happen is those search results will come up and they're going to see your very proactive in the community. You get it? So all we're trying to do is use the social to reinforce, use the passive, the social media to reinforce the proactive, which is you door knocking. That is closing the loop. That's creating a Web. Now, there is a way to do these videos. And Julie gave you some ideas. We also include in our premier coaching, which is free for all of you, a 12 month social media marketing plan. It's something a lot of you, frankly, are struggling with because you don't know what to talk about, what to do. And we give you a lot of great ideas, kind of model out your entire year what you should be doing. I just gave you some ideas right there. If you want to join premier coaching for free, you heard that right. For free, simply text the word premier to four seven three seven two. Text the word premier to four seven three seven two. Or you can always go to members dot Tim and Julie Harris dot com if you don't want to text or if you're outside of the continental United States.

This is a perfect time of year for you to be getting your skills 100 percent in alignment with this new market. So text the word premier to four seven three seven two. Remember, when texting message and data rates may apply. Yes. So back to point number 13, just for a second. So let's say that you went door knocking today in Oak Creek. You talked about it. You gave some fast facts. You let everybody know you'll be there this afternoon. Well, maybe this weekend somebody in Oak Creek is thinking about listing their property. One of the first things they're going to do is go to Google and say agents or realtors or real estate agents in Oak Creek. They want to know who actually sells that area. And guess whose video is going to pop up, assuming that you did point number 13. Well, you know, you're going to get me we're never going to move past 13. But this is really this is such a sweet thing that she just said. You all should do this experience or experiment. Go to your phone, go to open up Chrome, assuming you have that on your phone, and then do a search for Julius using Oak Creek. I mean, Oak Creek's a subdivision we used to sell in. But use the name of a subdivision in a community, like as if you were a buyer looking. And then what I want you to notice is the first ads that come up are the pay -per -click ads. And then after that, what you're going to see is usually in the second or usually the first, second or third search results, you're going to see search results from YouTube. In other words, you're going to see that Google is starting to give priority to these short little snippet videos that I just described to you, and they're prioritizing the videos above the normal search results. In other words, you're going to get primo search results. Why? Because they want people to click search results and they know people will click video search results, like at a 5 to 1 ratio, more than a textural search result. So you need to be doing these little short videos in conjunction with what you're already doing. Now, it's not enough just to do the video. You're going to have to use a system like the one Julie and I use is called vidIQ to make sure you're getting all the YouTube SEO stuff right. You have to title it right. You have to put in tags. It's all very... None of that's hard, though. Oh, it's super simple. I mean, frankly, if you and I know how to do it. Right. And vidIQ is so cheap, I don't even remember how much it costs. There's a free version. OK, there you go. And we're not we're not affiliated with vidIQ. It's just vidIQ. And then it'll tell you essentially how to make it so that your videos get higher placement. The key is always to have very drilled down titles in your descriptions saying today I'm door knocking and getting to know the neighbors in Oak Creek subdivision nothing and a lot of you know, you don't need a lot of blithering and blathering, just very three or four lines. And then you want to put your links. You want to if you'd like to contact me about home for sale in Oak Creek or if you're thinking about selling your home in Oak Creek and then give your cell phone number, things like that. And what you'll find is you'll start generating leads from your YouTube. But what you're really trying to do is close the loop. Door knock. Hello. Hi, it's Bob at my door. Bob's here to provide me some information about recent home sales. Bob's, you know, very nice, very approachable. I like Bob. Bob's great. He's obviously trying to do a great job getting home sold in our community. Well, I'm more curious. I'm curious about Bob before I actually want to further my relationship with him. I have my phone in my pocket. I pull it out. I Google Bob's name, but I find Bob's actually very proactive. You guys get it. This is all free. Every single thing we told you how to do so far is free. Yes. And the super cool thing about doing the video in addition or in conjunction with your actual door knocking is that that video is going to live on and the search results will live on. So it gives a boost to that door knocking. OK, point number 14, door knock the neighborhood prior to all of your open houses. Again, give out a flyer with the stats for the neighborhood and add your home brochure for the home that you'll hold open. Ask who they know who you should invite to the open house. Ask permission to place your directional signs in the yards. And don't forget to ask, who do you know who could use my help buying or selling real estate? Well, let me give you a little bit of an enhancement to this. Now, this will work pretty much in all price ranges. But what our best age we have agents that are making, you know, millions of dollars per year. One of their primary lead drivers is doing exactly what we talk about. One of the things you want to do, it works sometimes unbelievably well in certain neighborhoods, usually more expensive neighborhoods realistically. But one of the things you want to do is you want to have a neighbors only open house prior to the main open house. And so what you can do is you can go and door knock the neighbors, invite them to the open house, and then by inviting them to the open house, you're going to maybe have the open house, the normal one for the public open from one till four, where you're going to have the neighbors only open house from, say, you know, 12 till one or something like that. What you're doing is you're just showing that you're more proactive and you're getting to know all the neighbors and the neighbors are going to think, you know what? This gives me the opportunity to go through that house and look in their garage and see if they ever gave me my mower back or my, you know, search for that search for the missing, you know, whatever, see if my neighbors accidentally snatched it. That's a bad joke, but you guys get the point. What we're really trying to do is position you, put you in. You're now door knocking. You're now having conversations. You're now delivering value to people. You're now being the person you want to be and you're working in the communities you want to work. You're actually doing real work of real estate. How does that make you feel? How does that make you feel versus, say, for example, working on your CRM more or less confident? How does that make you feel knowing you're having direct conversations with people versus, say, building a big funnel that hopefully maybe you're going to spend a bunch of money trying to get people to go into so you can drip on them door knocking, having real proactive conversations. It immediately energizes you, immediately makes you more in alignment with your highest and truest purpose in this planet, which is being of service to other people. Point number fifteen. Yes, and number fifteen is a mindset point. Believe that door knocking works and it will work. How you speak with someone when you're prospecting is greatly influenced by how you're thinking about what you're doing. Napoleon Hill said, what the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve. You'll have more energy and enthusiasm when you're all in versus I'm going to try it out or I'll see how it goes. I'm just going to do this for one day and see whether it works or not. So believe that it's working. Be consistent about it and your your attitude about it will cause you to have better results. And also with regards to that, when you're door knocking, use the scripts that we give you. We talked about those a little bit on the first couple of shows of the series, but obviously these are all waiting for you over on premier coaching and all of you are ready to join premier coaching. Don't wait. Just text the word premier to four seven three seven two and you can join right away. Remember when texting message and data rates may apply. Yes. Now our final point, number sixteen is number sixteen in a four part series because it's a bit more advanced. It's also one of my favorite points about door knocking. You can create a neighborhood directory as a way to get everyone's contact information and connect the community. This can be digital and or hard copy. It's a great excuse to door knock and you're providing value to the community. You can include a map of the neighborhood, phone numbers to the utility companies who service the neighborhood and a section for other recommended providers like the sprinkler guy, a pool guy, a painter, a dog walker, a babysitter. And of course, your real estate ad with testimonials will be in that section as well. Or you could put it in the back cover as directory sponsored by Bob Smith of Exp Realty, for example. This is why hard copy is nice. It stays in their kitchen with your information on it and they use it all the time. They're not going to throw it out. This is such a huge idea when you do it well. And of course, Julie and I did this as well. And yes, we could have leaned into one of those online portals. What was the one that was in Georgetown, like nextdoor .com and they provide. But they're keeping all of that pertinent information behind a paywall and you're not in control of it. So really, what you want to do is there's a couple of different ways to go about this. I would say you'll experience, again, depending on the price range, you're going to experience 50 percent of the people are going to be very apprehensive about giving their information out. So here's the move is you want to essentially create a fill in the blank flyer and the fill in the blank flyer has no required information. Now, you can have an address associated with a name. You don't have to have their permission to say one, two, three Elm Street is lived in by Bob and Betty Jones. Right. You can do that. All their other information, they have to decide whether they want to share it, their phone numbers, their email addresses, whatever else it is. So you will door knock and you will say we're putting together a directory as a community service. And this directory is only going to be given to people in the neighborhood. It's not going to be shared any other way. It's only going to be in print format. It's not going to be a digital format. No one's going to be able to essentially email it or anything like that. So you don't have to worry about any nefarious marketing that might happen as a result of it. This is just for the neighborhood. In addition to that, we're going to include a list of the service providers. So if you've got any on the same fill in the blank thing, who is your favorite babysitter? Who's your favorite roofer? Who is your preferred landscaper? Who is your preferred all the rest of it? Right. If you're from Columbus, Ohio, like where Julie and I are from, who's the best, most reliable person that's going to show up in the middle of the night and move the 14 feet of snow off your driveway, all that sort of thing. Right. Give them the babysitters, all these types of things. But that's really valuable. You know, I mean, how many times do you, oh, I got to go Google that and then I've got to look at reviews and I got to sift and sort all that out. What if you knew, and we talk about this all the time, that when somebody needs a service provider, what do they do? Who do I already know? If I don't already know somebody, I'm going to ask a trusted friend or advisor. I'm probably going to ask a neighbor because they're going to know who services the community. So this is a really valuable thing for you to put together. That will have shelf life. And of course, you can sponsor the back cover. You can include yourself in the service providers. There's lots of ways you can work this. And so you can you should do this. This is just thinking big here. You should do this every year. Now, when Julie and I did this, what we did was we do it. Actually, I don't think we updated it every year. I think we updated it like every 18 months or 24 months. But it was it was obviously completely voluntary. At first, people were apprehensive and then they felt left out. They had FOMO if not being in the directory.
"fifteen" Discussed on WTOP
"Op at twelve fifteen i'm mike morillo thanks for being with us Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is vowing a stern retaliation to a recent Russian missile strike in the center of the northern Ukrainian city that killed seven people and wounded over a hundred others to discuss corner in Zelensky's fans of wtop's luke lucre spoke with former pentagon official and senior fellow at the merry omen kuso i think it's going slowly primarily um i think the key objectives that Ukraine has set out for itself looks like they're unlikely to be achieved in the short term but i want to make something clear i think they are not outside the room of the possible and i think a lot of that has to do with ukrainian tactics i think need to be changed but fundamentally it's going more slowly i think the ukrainians have been because they care about the lives of their soldiers somewhat risk averse in terms of the counter offensive but it is going slowly um but again i it's don't think outside their objectives are outside the realm of the possible but i think it will take a while. are the stated ukrainian objectives you know to retake all occupied lands including crimea is still feasible? i think they are feasible i think crimea is going to be tough candidly but i wouldn't exclude the possibility that it's feasible i think a lot things of have to go their way and i think they have to continue to get the significant western support and i think frankly that's the wild card right because they're not going to likely achieve their objectives in the near term and these you know this counter offensive is hard it's going to take time and time is not necessarily on the Ukrainian sides for a lot of different reasons Russia is a much larger country Ukraine depends on western support western support could wane over time especially as we go into the presidential elections in 2024 and obviously there are similar political dynamics at play in Europe so the strategic calculus is a little bit more complicated i think the Ukrainians have an a pretty urgent imperative to get what they want to get done as quickly as possible but again this is really really hard i think the most important things that the Ukrainians frankly can do that lies within their control is probably change up their tactics a little bit they're proceeding on in three major axes of advance probably concentrate on the south and I think take a little bit more risks tactically and try to punch through what are pretty stiff Russian defenses.

And welcome to those just joining us in today's live stream. So much to cover. Next up, we're going to dive into our Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out some of the charts, as well as some interesting facts with some hodlers as well. Bitcoin speculators are leading a period of exhaustion and apathy across the market. In the latest edition of the weekly newsletter, the week on chain analytics firm Glassnode wrote about waning conviction about Bitcoin's short term hodlers. Now, where are my long term hodlers at? Make some noise. And after several months of stagnant Bitcoin price action, frustration amongst market participants has led to predictions of deeper downside to come. The bulls remain unable to break the resistance, while the sellers likewise face multiple support zones in the form of trend lines between the current twenty nine thousand and twenty five thousand dollar levels. And amongst these is the short term hodler cost basis, or better known as the realized price. Short term hodlers are defined by Glassnode as entities hodling coins for one hundred and fifty five days or less and correspond to the more speculative end of the Bitcoin spectrum. investor Now, the short term hodler cost basis has function as support throughout twenty twenty three, but is rapidly rising and currently sits at twenty eight thousand six hundred dollars. Now, by contrast, the long term hodler cost basis reflects the aggregate purchase price of the most stubborn hodlers and thus far lower at twenty thousand three hundred. Quitting Glassnode, the separation between these two cost basis is an indicator that many recent buyers have a relatively equated acquisition price and continuing, researchers describe the market as being potentially top heavy with even a modest Bitcoin price come down now apt to send the short term hodler cohort back into the red. Quoting Glassnode again, on the macro scale, the supply distribution does resemble similar periods during the bear market recoveries of the past. However, a shorter time frame, it could be argued to be slightly top heavy market with many price sensitive investors at risk of falling into unrealized losses. Now, despite this, it appears that speculators have already started to reconsider their market exposure. Let me know if you have or if you're continuing to stack stats as you should. Quoting them here, we note that the supply held by the long term hodlers continues to increase, hitting an all time high of fourteen point six million BTC. So in direct contrast, short term hodler supply declined to multiyear lows at two point five six million BTC the week on chain added. So overall, this suggests that conviction of Bitcoin investors does remain impressively high and few are willing to liquidate their holdings. Are you one of them? Let me know in the comments right down below. Now, the last time the short term hodlers had such little market presence was in October of twenty twenty one, just before the all time high of sixty nine thousand dollars. And it is very interesting as we see the short term hodlers continue to sell and the long term hodlers continue to stack stats as they should. I say the smart money are the whales and the long term hodlers. Would you agree? Let me know your honest opinion. Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And now let's discuss our next story of the day. And that's Max Keiser's rant when he spoke in Congress back in January of two thousand and nine, talking about disarming the bankers and their financial weapons, a mass destruction, a very powerful speech given by Max. If you've got to hear this, let me know. I posted and transcribed it on what was formerly known as Twitter, now known as X this morning, quoting Max Keiser. This is an important day as we review the situation with respect to disarming bankers. After the first Great Depression, Congress passed the Glass -Steagall Act. The purpose of the resolution was to disarm bankers as well as brokers. Now, never again would they be allowed to destroy the global financial system. I'm here to warn you that they have, in fact, rearm themselves with a deadly toxic debt instrument known as a derivative. I asked for this session today to support the core assessment made by FAME investor Warren Buffett. He said derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction and that have apparently been devised by madmen. These instruments pose a mega catastrophic risk. Ladies and gentlemen, don't wait for the mushroom cloud of bad debts to explode over our financial system. Let's disarm the bankers before it's too late. Very powerful words coming from Max Keiser. And again, this is circa January of two thousand and nine, right around the time of the Bitcoin Genesis block, which was released after the 2008 financial crisis. And lo and behold, you can consider him a prophet because everything he was talking about is exactly what's been going on. Financial terrorism as it continues as the central bankers of the world continue to print money until the wheels fall off. Massive shout out to Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert. As you know, I'm huge fans of them both via the Kaiser report as they were the first one to cover Bitcoin with international coverage back when it was trading between a dollar to ten dollars. This is going all the way back in 2011, so literally was at 14 or 13 years ago. So much respect to the high priest of Bitcoin. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss our next story of the day. Now that we covered Max versus the banksters and that is El Salvador and their success with their bonds, which have been released as returns soar to 70 percent thus far this year. Check it out. El Salvador, which adopted Bitcoin as the legal tender back in 2021, has seen its dollar bound outperform the majority of the emerging markets with a 70 percent return thus far this year. The massive rally of the bond has now drawn interest from several institutional giants, which include JPMorgan Chase. Take that tapeworm Jamie Dimon, as well as Eaton Vance and PGIM Fix, promoting President Najib Okele to say, I told you so. Now, apart from the institutional giants, the likes of Lord and EBIT and also Neuberger German or I'm sorry, Berman Group LLC and UBS Group AG have also added debt security since April, according to Bloomberg. And also, Paolo, the chief technology officer of Bitfinex, told Cointelegraph that the performance of El Salvador bonds is a clear signal that the investors are supportive of the financial policies of the El Salvadoran government and demonstrates the renewed interest in investing in the El Salvador story while adding the following as the first company to receive a digital asset license, we are seeing significant interest in digital asset issuance and renewable energy investments, which the country has in abundance and is being used for Bitcoin mining and to provide more energy for the country's electrical grid. Now, the growing demand of El Salvador's debt security in 2023 is a quite contrast to its performance a couple of years ago when it first adopted Bitcoin as the legal tender. That's right. They've come a long way. The Bitcoin adoption created uncertainty amongst investors who bet against the country's bonds with several financial agencies, casting a shadow of doubt on the country's financial future. In February of 2022, the American Credit Agency agency Fitch lowered the country's long term issuer default rating from a B minus to CCC, inciting policy uncertainty in the Bitcoin adoption, along with an eight hundred million dollar debt payment due for January of twenty twenty three. Now, keep in mind, El Salvador did pay that eight hundred million dollar debt in full within the due maturing time to start off the year, raising confidence in the country's bonds yet again. And the president, Bukele, at the time noted that they had proven every finance pundit wrong, who doubted whether they would be able to pay their debts in a time after Bitcoin adoption, quoting Bukele here. He actually shared this in January of twenty twenty three in the past year. Almost every legacy international news outlet said that because of our Bitcoin bet, El Salvador was going to default on its debt by January of twenty twenty three, since we had an eight hundred million dollar bond maturing today, literally hundreds of articles. Never forget that. Now, the rise in confidence of investors is visible from the bonds performance throughout the year. And during the same time, El Salvador also passed a landmark crypto bill paving the way for the infamous Bitcoin backed volcano bonds. Let's freaking go. Now, El Salvador and its president have been at the receiving end of criticism every single day since they first adopted Bitcoin in September of twenty twenty one as legal tender, along with the United States dollar financial pundits predicted that the Bitcoin adoption will further strain El Salvador's financial conditions. However, to the contrary, within two years, the debt security of the state has become a hot cake amongst institutional giants, the same that once advised against buying it. So I'll say it for Bukele. I told you so. So there you have it. Let's go El Salvador mass adoption. Bring it. In which country do you think will likely be next to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender and follow in the footsteps of Bukele and El Salvador? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now, let's discuss a forty thousand dollar Bitcoin price prediction, as well as a timeline, which I'm going to be sharing with you right here. If you think Bitcoin is likely to hit this forty thousand target, let me know. Now, while he followed analyst Pizzino is bullish on Bitcoin as the flagship crypto asset trades in a narrow range for the past few days or we could say for the past few weeks in a new video, he tells his three hundred thousand YouTube subs the Bitcoin can climb by over 40 percent from the current level between now and September of twenty twenty four. Considering September is only two weeks away, that would be pretty enticing winning it. The crypto analyst says that his upside target of forty two thousand is the range midpoint or the 50 percent level between the Bitcoin all time high of sixty nine thousand and Bitcoin's twenty twenty two low of around fifteen five. Quitting him here, it is possible that we see a test of forty two thousand happen within the period between now and September of twenty twenty four. So in basically twelve, thirteen months, a test of the 50 percent level of forty two thousand two hundred and then a retreat. Do you think we're likely to rise on up to that forty thousand mark? Let me know. And after appreciating to over forty thousand Bitcoin could thereafter correct either mildly or substantially, according to the analyst quoting him again, it could be a small retreat like back here, June to August of twenty sixteen, where it tested seven hundred and then came back to five hundred. Or it could be a deep retreat where it tested all the way up to fourteen thousand in June of twenty nineteen, when the 50 percent level was only eleven thousand five hundred. And then it came all the way back down to four thousand in March of twenty twenty, thanks to no vid. And to watch this video with the analyst predicting Bitcoin can rise to one hundred and sixty one thousand, check the show notes below the video in the description. And please do let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analyst. And now let's discuss our next story of the day, and that's the one hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price prediction from Rich Dad author Robert Kiyosaki. In fact, he even claims that Bitcoin can now go to a million dollars. So let's break this down and then we'll dive into our feature story of the day with the BlackRock ETF, which can send the Bitcoin price parabolic over six hundred percent, surpassing a whopping price target of one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. But first, Robert Kiyosaki, he stands behind his call that the Bitcoin price will put a new all time high and run all the way up to one hundred thousand. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the author. Now, Kiyosaki refers to Bitcoin as the people's money very commonly and says that those who save in U .S. dollars are likely screwed. And that was the nice way of putting it. Reading his tweet here, Bitcoin to one hundred thousand dollars, saying for years gold and silver is God's money. Bitcoin is the people's money preach bad news if the stocks and bond market crash gold and silver to skyrocket the worst news if the economy crashes Bitcoin to a million dollars. Now, that doesn't sound like so such bad news to me. That would be extremely brilliant news for the Bitcoin price to go to a million. But I understand an economy crash is not good. But he continues gold to seventy five thousand and silver to sixty thousand. I do not see those precious metals rising like that, especially considering they're controlled by the central bankers and the cartels have been controlling precious metal markets for a very long time. But nonetheless, I digress. He continues, savers of fake U .S. dollars are effed. Debt is too high. Mom, pops and kids are in trouble. And I hope I am wrong, but please take care. I mean, very bold words coming from Kiyosaki. Also, in an interview he did with Stansberry Research's Daniela Cambone, he warned up the idea of Bitcoin as he has lost all trust in institutions running the country, quitting him here. I like Bitcoin because we have an enemy in common breach. It's called the federal government breach, the Treasury and the Fed and Wall Street breach. I don't trust them. If you trust them, save dollars and get yourself a nice bond. I do not trust those guys. How many can relate with Rich Dad earlier in the year? Kiyosaki also predicted Bitcoin would eventually skyrocket to one hundred thousand per coin, highlighting that the king crypto does not need the intervention of the government to sustain its value. So there you have it. Come in directly from Rich Dad. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the Rich Dad, Poor Dad author. And with that being shared, now let's dive into our featured story of the day. That's everything surrounding the BlackRock ETF, a spot Bitcoin ETF being approved in the United States. Tom Lee was just recently interviewed and says he believes it will automatically send the Bitcoin price somewhere between one hundred and fifty and one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. So let's break this down, shall we? And here this is on this interview. I also already transcribed it for your benefit here. And I'm going to start reading so we don't have to play that sound clip because it's copyrighted. Anyways, he's asked, I always like hearing your price targets. Because you are always so fearless. When are you or where are you on Bitcoin by the end of next year? Let's say. And he responded, well, it's a spot Bitcoin gets approved, referring to the spot Bitcoin ETF. I think the demand will be greater than the daily supply of Bitcoin. So the clearing price, which is done by Sean Farrell, who is our crypto digital strategist, is over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. In fact, it could even be one hundred and eighty thousand per Bitcoin. And then when asked, that's only if the spot ETF gets approved. Tom Lee responded, yes, a spot US because a spot Bitcoin ETF is approved already outside the US, which is a fact. And then asked, but if it's not approved, then are we just lingering at around twenty nine thousand in which he responded? There is still upside cast because of the halving next year. So you'll have a drop in supply again. And so the clearing price has to increase, but it won't be six figures. So he's ultimately saying the approval of the spot Bitcoin ETF, regardless if it's BlackRock or any of the others, such as Fidelity or ARK Invest, 21 shares, etc., will absolutely send the Bitcoin price to a minimal of one hundred and fifty thousand. And that target could even be as high as one hundred and eighty thousand. But he's also saying in the same token, if Gary Gensler and the SEC does not approve it by the time of the halving, do not expect a six figure Bitcoin price, but expect the price to go up because of the drop in supply as well as the gain and demand. I think the analyst makes a very great point. Now, he was also interviewed a few weeks ago and he discussed this price action occurring within nine months. So I wanted to give you that time frame because the Bitcoin ETF is scheduled to be released sometime. Not the ETF, but the halving is scheduled to be in April of twenty twenty four. So anyways, here's what he had to share in this interview. Current Bitcoin market is in balance with twenty five million in daily block rewards and twenty five million in daily demand, incremental ETF demand. Sean Farrell, their analyst, believes that twenty five billion dollars of demand is possible within the first year. So this is how they come to these numbers. This is one hundred million dollars in daily demand. This would bring the daily demand to one hundred and twenty five million while the daily supply is only twenty five million. So the implied equilibrium price would need to rise so that the daily supply matches the daily demand. Equilibrium analysis suggests that a clearing price is one hundred and forty to one hundred and eighty thousand per Bitcoin before the April twenty twenty four halving. Now, if you'd like to see that come to fruition, make some noise in the live chat. Now he continues. Generally, this idea of higher equilibrium price is consistent. Sean Farrell estimates that the flow multiplier for Bitcoin is four to five X and on the odds of a spot Bitcoin ETF finally getting approved in the United States after numerous rejections of the past year. Here's what we had to share. Bitcoin ETF could finally get approved. Sean Farrell sees the BlackRock effect, making it this far more likely today. Now, BlackRock, we all know, is the world's largest asset manager, and they say they have roughly 10 trillion or more in assets under management. So there you have it. Very bullish predictions coming from Tom Lee and on regards to this BlackRock ETF being approved. But I'd love to know your thoughts. Do you think that the BlackRock Bitcoin ETF will be approved within the next nine months before the Bitcoin halving scheduled to be in April of twenty twenty four? Let me know why or why not. And I'm going to start reading all of your comments out loud. And don't forget to check out CryptoNewsAlerts .net for the full premium experience with video and to participate in the live Q &A.

So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at CryptoNewsAlerts .net. Again, that's Crypto News Alerts .net. And welcome, everyone. Just tuning in. This is Pod episode number thirteen hundred and seventy. I'm your host, JV. Today is August 13th, twenty twenty three. Kicking off today's episode here with our market watch, we can see Bitcoin still holding strong onto twenty nine thousand four hundred, but slightly consolidating for the day. We also have Ether barely back in the green, trading above eighteen hundred and fifty dollars, along with BNB and XRP also in the green. And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the current crypto market cap sits at one point one seven trillion dollars, with about 17 billion in volume in the past twenty four hours, with the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point seven percent and the Ether dominance at eighteen point nine percent. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers in the past twenty four hours, we have room lead in the pack up twelve percent, trading at a dollar thirty seven, followed by a ton up about seven percent, trading at a dollar forty three, followed by Pepe up four and a half percent and checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past week. Mostly, I'd say we got a few in the green, but also probably equally as much in the red. Some of the biggest losers include Koss and Bone, with some of the top gainers for the day, the same as the week with Tun, Rune and Pepe. And checking out the Crypto Greed and Fear Index, we're currently rated a fifty four neutral, same as yesterday. Last week was a forty nine and last month was a sixty in greed. So there you have it. How many of you are currently bullish on the king crypto and have been taking advantage of this recent dip? Let me know in the comments right down below. And now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis and see what's happened with the continuous sideways trading action. Most of the alts are also quiet today on Sunday, similar to how they perform yesterday on Saturday, except for Rune and Tun taking the lead. Now, the past few weeks went in a rather unventful fashion for typically more volatile crypto asset. This past Monday saw some movements as Bitcoin dipped below twenty nine thousand to mark the weekly low. However, it went on an offensive almost immediately and had surged past thirty thousand by the time Wednesday came. But that was short lived. More volatility was expected on Thursday when the US CPI numbers were set to come out. Yet that wasn't the case. Bitcoin remained at just under thirty thousand, where it had retrace hours just before that. And then the following days were quite stagnant. Once again, Bitcoin stood still within the same tight range of between twenty nine and twenty nine five. And expectedly, the weekend didn't provide anything different, given the typically lower trading volume. So there you have it. I mean, it's been very boring sideways trading action. Nothing new. But I feel once we can break thirty two, we're likely to continue marching on up, breaking the annual high. And there's not much resistance between thirty two and forty. So do keep that in mind as well. Now for the latest regarding the first publicly traded company to put Bitcoin on their balance sheet, which is MicroStrategy. They're still holding their four and a half billion dollars worth of BTC. Let's break this down. As you can see here, it's been three years since MicroStrategy first accumulated their BTC. Michael Saylor spearheaded the strategy of making Bitcoin their primary Treasury Reserve asset, directing the firm to buy twenty one thousand four hundred and fifty four BTC for two hundred and fifty million at an individual price of roughly eleven thousand six hundred dollars on August 11th of 2020. That's when it all began. Now, in the up and down years since MicroStrategy continued to consistently invest in the top crypto asset, becoming the largest institutional holder of Bitcoin. And as of July 31st, the firm holds one hundred and fifty two thousand eight hundred BTC acquired for a total cost of roughly four and a half billion dollars at an average individual price of twenty nine thousand six hundred and seventy two. So they're roughly at their break even point. Interestingly enough, now Saylor was MicroStrategy's chief executive when the company first bought Bitcoin, but now serves as its executive chair after stepping back from the CEO role last year. The MicroStrategy stock is up more than two hundred and ten percent since August 10th. So keep that in mind. And that since 2020, the day before it made the announcement to purchase Bitcoin, MicroStrategy is currently priced at three hundred and eighty four dollars per share, according to Market Watch. And it hasn't been an entirely smooth ride. However, keep in mind, MicroStrategy is down more than 70 percent from the three year high of eleven or one thousand three fifteen, which it hit on February 9th of twenty twenty one, referring to the stock right as Bitcoin was in the midst of that ascendant bull run. And in June of twenty twenty two, MicroStrategy faced concerns it would receive a margin call on a Bitcoin backed loan, though those fears never materialized and seemed to be nothing more than FUD. And in a margin call, a trader or investor is required to put up more funds to avert the closure or liquidation of a leveraged position. And I think when those FUD rumors were coming out, Michael Saylor said unless the Bitcoin price dips all the way to three thousand, we are not getting liquidated because they had more assets to back it. So it was nothing more than FUD at the end of the day. But very interesting. I think MicroStrategy will continue being one of the largest huddlers of Bitcoin in the world. They're second in line to Grayscale, which controls over four hundred thousand BTC. And at this time being there's no spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. The next best closest thing is to owning MicroStrategy stock. And of course, Michael Saylor is very bullish on that. Now, let's discuss the latest regarding the PayPal stablecoin, which is titled PYUSD. They've been announcing some plans for DeFi. And we also had some analysts recently come out predicting due to the launch of the PayPal stablecoin because their audience is so large, hundreds of millions of people that use PayPal on a regular basis, active users, that it can send the Bitcoin price to a quarter million dollars per coin. That was a prediction from Charlie Shrem. I covered a few episodes ago. If you missed that, be sure to check that out. Now, an insider from PayPal says the firm's new stablecoin will ultimately launch on DeFi platforms sometime in the future. In the new interview on the Unchained Pod, Jose Fernandez, PayPal's senior vice president of blockchain, crypto and digital currencies, told the host Laura Shin that the firm intends for their stablecoin, which was launched earlier in the month, to be available on crypto exchanges and compatible with the DeFi ecosystems, quoting them here. I think DeFi will be a part of the first wave in the sense that we want to go where crypto users are using stable coins today and DeFi as a use case for that. So as of today, you can only get the PYUSD on the PayPal wallet. We are ramping up the product, but definitely the intention is that it will be available in the main exchanges. And when the distribution is available, then the folks will be able to use it for the traditional use cases. The Ponte goes on to share that their stablecoin is already compatible with Ethereum wallets as it is technically an ERC20 token, ultimately meaning on the Ethereum blockchain, and that it's fully backed in compliance with New York regulations. Quoting him again, the stablecoin PYUSD is an ERC20 token. It's deployed on the Ethereum blockchain and it can be sent outside to wallets that enable ERC20 tokens. Now, there is definitely an aspect of it that has to do with being fully backed and regulated as a stablecoin. As you know, we are issued out of New York. Paxos is the issuer and the token is approved by the New York Department of Financial and Security New York has very clear and strict requirements in terms of KYC, know your customer, and anti -money laundering provisions that require the ability to be able to have the right control in place. So there you have it. And to watch this entire interview, they did check the show notes below the video in the description. I will give you a little disclaimer. I do not trust PayPal as far as I can throw them. I had a lot of people ask me, where can I get the stablecoin? It seems currently only available on PayPal, but I wouldn't be holding it. I'd prefer the real thing, which is Bitcoin the only decentralized crypto asset because PayPal, just as they can freeze your funds and freeze your PayPal account. They've done that to me before in the past, probably like a decade ago back in the day. They could also freeze your stablecoin the same way because all it is is a digital version of the dollar. So that's not so enticing or exciting to me. But the reason it's fruitful and bullish for the entire industry, it can help usher in that mass adoption, considering PayPal has hundreds of millions of active use active users. That's why this is a pretty bullish story. But anyways, now let's talk about the ticking time bomb, followed by one hundred and eighty thousand dollar prediction from Fundstrat at the time of the halving less than nine months away. And then I'll be sharing the latest and greatest from the one and only Jack Mallers and why you should own a Bitcoin and why the Bitcoin price is trending towards seven figures. Let's break it down. And yeah, if you're just joining us, make sure to say hello in the live chat. Don't be a stranger, as this is a live and interactive show. But yeah, let's break this story down. As you can see, while he followed analysts as Bitcoin is gearing up for a historic move to the upside, now that has rarely seen the indicator has flash. This anonymous analyst known as Credible Crypto shares that Bitcoin is going through a period of record low volatility or a compression phase, which he says will ultimately lead to historic expansion. Send it. Let's go. He shares a chart, which you can see here, along with fellow analyst tech dev who points out that Bitcoin's three week chart is approaching compression levels that previously signaled the start of the bull markets since 2012. Quoting credible here, historic compression leads to historic expansion. Imagine looking at this chart and thinking, yeah, ten thousand dollars incoming, a ticking time bomb till bear extinction. BTC. That's what's up. Now, while many Bitcoin bulls have lost confidence due to the Bitcoin uneventful price action, credible says Bitcoin is simply consolidating, which should be considered bullish, quoting him again, seeing a lot of if we are so bullish, why aren't we moving up? The bulls don't have the strength to push the price higher. This is bearish. But when the price is moving sideways, it means that neither bears nor bulls are in the driver's seat. Consolidation is, by definition, neutral buyers and sellers have reached an equilibrium. Now, nine out of ten times consolidation structures resolve in the direction of the trend that preceded them. We have been in a very clean, obvious uptrend since fifteen thousand dollars. So by default, then one should expect this consolidation over the last month to resolve to the upside. And he continues, your default stance on Bitcoin here should be bullish, in my opinion, unless we start breaking bullish market structure. For example, the first and lowest timeframe level of the bullish market structure that matters is twenty four eight marked, as you can see here in this chart. So there you have it. How many of you agree with credible crypto aren't currently bullish, even though the price action seems boring and continues to trade sideways? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below, which leads us to our next story of the day. That's Fundstrat's prediction of one hundred and eighty thousand dollar Bitcoin price by the time of the next halving, keeping in mind that halving is scheduled to be sometime in April 2024, virtually meaning less than nine months away. Let's break this down and shut up to Tom Lee over at Fundstrat. So I actually shared this in a tweet here this morning. Fundstrat investor note says Bitcoin could hit one hundred and eighty thousand before the upcoming block reward halving in April of twenty twenty four. And also interesting, an Indian analyst thinks that World War Three had already begun expecting the BRICS economic bloc to merge with the Shanghai Corporation Organization. And also it is shared that the financial services company attributes this projected five hundred and twenty one percent Bitcoin price hike from the current levels to the rising demand fueled mainly by the anticipated approval of a Bitcoin ETF, which I know is on everyone's mind. We know there's literally hundreds of trillions of dollars in the total addressable market, much of which can be come in pouring directly into BTC. So let's break down some more of these numbers. Fundstrat's and Pharrell's projections follow the mid -July forecast from the banking giant Standard Chartered. And guess who is the primary shareholder of Standard Chartered? You guessed it, BlackRock fam. They predict one hundred and twenty thousand dollar Bitcoin price by the end of next year in twenty twenty four. Now, Pharrell's analysis points to a Bitcoin ETF potentially adding an extra hundred million dollars in daily demand. I honestly feel that is conservative, but hey, now why the impending halving will slash the daily mining rewards down to a mere twelve million, quoting them here with a spot Bitcoin ETF launch daily demand will reach one hundred and twenty five million while the daily supply is only twenty five million. The implicit equilibrium price would need to increase so that the daily supply matches the daily demand. Now, equilibrium analysis suggests a clearing price of one hundred and forty to one hundred and eighty thousand per BTC before the halving in April of twenty twenty four. And moreover, Fundstrat envisions the possibility for a BlackRock Bitcoin ETF to become one of the most monumental ETF launches ever. Let's go. Possibly outstripping the QQQ ETF's thirty six billion in first year inflows. I think we crush it personally. The firm is of the opinion that Bitcoin ETF assets might outshine precious metal ETFs one hundred percent. Now that's a market worth two hundred and thirty billion dollars and eventually become a category worth more than three hundred billion. That's a given, right? However, approval for a spot Bitcoin ETF could enable manipulation akin to allegations about precious metal ETFs like gold and silver. A physically backed Bitcoin ETF is expected to boost crypto adoption as well as the prices. There is a chance it could mimic the gold and silver and allowing leverage of fictional supplies Bitcoin to manage futures positions, a .k .a. through derivatives. Now, when the price rises too fast, this imaginary Bitcoin supply could be dumped to tamp the global prices down. But for a while now, Fundstrat has been prophesizing a leap into the six digit territory as far as the Bitcoin price action, though these bold predictions have yet to materialize. Also, keep in mind, back in May of twenty twenty one, David Grider, the firm's chief digital asset strategist, confidently asserted that the target Bitcoin price of one hundred thousand per coin remained intact. Send it. He further envisioned Ethereum scaling to ten thousand per coin, reflecting on the broader crypto landscape. Grider's perspective from two years prior foresaw the entire crypto economy accelerating towards a staggering five trillion dollar milestone. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Fundstrat and their analysts that the Bitcoin price is likely to hit that target of between one hundred and twenty twenty four. That Bitcoin halving in April of twenty twenty four, that would obviously be the calm before the storm. And could you imagine the BlackRock Bitcoin ETF virtually being approved pre halving? That's going to send Bitcoin to a whole new stratosphere, in my humble opinion. I predict that we hit the peak cycle high in twenty twenty five, just considering the history doesn't necessarily repeat, but often tends to rhyme. And I remember the Bitcoin halving of twenty sixteen. It was the year following in twenty seventeen. We hit the high for that cycle of roughly twenty thousand. Then like clockwork four years later from the twenty sixteen halving in twenty twenty, we had the next halving and the following year Bitcoin hit the current all time high of sixty nine thousand. Hence, I'm predicting a multiple six figure Bitcoin price by twenty twenty five. Let me know if you agree or disagree in the comments below. And like I said, I'll read everyone's comments out loud at the end of the show. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss our final breaking story of the day. Jack recently Mallers did a podcast episode on his new podcast, Shout Out to Jack. I transcribed it because I find it very valuable. He was also interviewed on CNBC and talks about how hyperinflation will send the Bitcoin price to a million dollars. So here's some of the highlights and my transcription from his interview I have to share with you and then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So here we go. Here's what Jack Mallers had to share in this interview. If silver is going to 1000 X, I will walk into my kitchen right now and I will melt all of my silverware and I will sell it at market. If gold is going to rally, Elon Musk will find more on Mars. This is a super important point. Bitcoin is the only monetary instrument in the history of our species that is fixed. It does not matter how much more demand comes into the asset class because no one will ever be able to make more than it. There are two things I can guarantee you in my life. Number one, that I'll die. And number two, there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin. And those are the two things that I could only value, which is my life and my Bitcoin. So it is the only fixed supply asset. It is not that complicated. It's going to go up because everything else can be issued more. The only thing that is clear to us and clear to our customers is that you cannot hold and save in dollars anymore. I think there is going to be a new era of the US dollar where inflation will enter and normalize 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 percent. The days of 2 percent inflation are over. The Fed really blew this thing up. You can call it inflation because the CPI is low to nonsense, right? Like the government is going to tell me how the dollar is inflating based upon a basket of instruments like my Netflix subscription or my Caesar salad doesn't actually tell me how well the dollar is doing or how much it's being devalued. Miami real estate does. Bitcoin does. Bitcoin is up over 50 percent this year. You're telling me the dollar isn't inflating. You're out of your mind. I am not listening to that. The Fed and the whole monetary system is based on trust and they constantly, they constantly break that trust. Preach. It would be the equivalent to there's a fire outside of my house. I smell the smoke and someone tells me, no, no, no, no. It's a bunch of teenagers putting on a bonfire. OK, but I hear one police siren. Are you sure it's a bonfire? Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's a bonfire. Now I hear 10 sirens, 100 sirens. My whole community is running out. I'm not going to get up and look outside the window and see what's going on. I don't believe them for a second. You have to be absolutely crazy to believe the Federal Reserve right now. They are full of it. And I don't have to because I own Bitcoin. There is no one that can deflate my instrument. I get to hold it, save in it. I know the monetary policy. I sleep like a baby, like the baby face that I am. I think you are crazy to believe the Fed and these swap lines and treating these assets at par. It is a gimmick. It is a scam. Very powerful words coming from Jack Mallers. Let me know if you agree or disagree. And as you can see, this post is going viral over on X. So be sure to share it and repost it. I greatly appreciate that. Now for some other thoughts regarding predictions coming from Jack Mallers as well. When he was speaking with CNBC's Power Lunch with Kelly Evans, the strike CEO discussed the role of Bitcoin in the ongoing banking crisis. And Mallers is convinced that the Bitcoin price will hit one million dollars per coin fueled by global hyperinflation. According to Mallers, the Fed has tarnished its name by printing more money to save the banking industry, despite claims to reduce inflation to 2 % as I just shared with you. And as such, Mallers expects the Bitcoin price to continue with higher demand and Mallers reiterated the fact that there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin units, despite the increase in demand. Now, notably Mallers bashed the altcoin industry for being centralized with founders holding massive coins at the expense of the secondary market. And as such, Mallers thinks that altcoins are suitable for speculation and should ultimately be used to accumulate more BTC. Quoting him again here, my overall opinion is that the name of the game is to accumulate as much Bitcoin as possible. The alts are interesting, but a lot more speculative. I use them to accumulate more BTC. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Jack Mallers and his thoughts, what he had to share. Do you think that global hyperinflation will likely send the Bitcoin price thriving to seven figures per coin?

A highlight from Is Elon Musk A Bitcoin HERO Again?
"If you use the four -year cycle, that means November -ish, October -ish, we would just be hitting $60K. So I don't know if we can go from $60K to doubling in two months or, you know, I think we're closer to $60K at the end of 2024. I like Bitcoin. You like Bitcoin? I like it. Alright, we do have a $4 .99 Super Chat from Corey. Cheers! Just put $2K into XRP and Algo. Love the channel. Alright, I feel pretty good about that two years from now. But if it's in the red a month from now, don't blame me. Blame that guy. Alright, no, we're kidding. Alright, Twitter partners with eToro to let users trade stocks, crypto as Musk pushes app into finance. Now, again, Elon has denied these rumors, but it looks like starting Thursday, he'll give users the option to buy and sell stocks and other assets, the company told CNBC exclusively. Maybe Elon is more rejecting the idea of the everything. But this is a rare partnership deal for Twitter since he took the reins as CEO. He's made it his mission to call it the super wrap here. They'll allow him to access stocks, crypto, and other financial assets with the partnership eToro. And with that, the cash tags will be expanded to cover far more instruments and asset classes, an eToro spokesperson told CNBC. eToro is founded in Israel in 2007, and it's an online brokerage that allows users to buy and sell stocks, cryptocurrencies, and index funds. Do you own any index funds? I might buy my first mutual fund. I don't know anything there. What's interesting here is going to be who ends up winning this battle. And you know, in the article, first of all, the first thing we should mention is the source of this information is a kind of sketchy one. We talked about him yesterday. It's Semaphore. We know Elon does not like Semaphore. He's one of the ones that outstid Semaphore when it comes to the situation happening with the Binance and now the U .S. government ordeal. But they are the ones breaking this news this morning. And they reference eToro and Robinhood because these would be the only two options at the moment unless Elon builds a brand new platform. These are the only two that would offer what's being rumored that they're going to do. And I have a question for the audience. I mean, a question for you too, Deezy. Which would you prefer him to use, eToro or Robinhood? They have their pluses, they have their minuses. I can't get over Vlad looking so much like a vampire. I'm just going to go with eToro off that very baseless and auspicious reason. Do you know the fees on eToro for crypto? I haven't. I've never used eToro, so I could not tell you what the fees are like. I bought Dogecoin once in my life. I went and got eToro to do so. eToro on crypto charges one percent for every buy and every sell. That's pretty rough. Now, I'm assuming there's a maximum, though, too, right? No, just blatant. You're confirming if it's a million dollar buy, it's 10K. At least you're confirming that. There's no on their website. Coinbase has the levels of like, if you buy this much, it's different. I think it's a $25 maximum. It just says one percent across the board. OK, one percent. Corey, he's going for the two years from now outlook. All right. All right. We have a video Elon posted in the wee hours of the night. This is about seven hours ago, maybe six hours ago. Let's play that thing. Do we have sound? Oh, yeah. I mean, he's just kind of chatting. Hang on. This is Elon having a good time. Here we go. Surprisingly cheap ceilings. Really? Hey, guys, you're on to welcome. He curls at forty five. All right, let's see. Not a hundred pound weight, Mike Kilmer. He's he's curling Zuckerberg's weight, right? Me, swelling of forty five. He did it pretty easily. Yeah. So there you go. Maybe he's working out, folks. Do you think Elon's working out? It looks like a video feature is working better. I think he is. I think he is. All right. Better than the sort of eight. All right. Now, yeah. Elon, he's he's definitely one of the the main memers of the Internet. Here we have a little graphic one app to rule them all as the X, you know, looks pretty close to the eye of Sauron. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course. All right. Well, what are your thoughts on the super app? Would you like to have a super app in America or do you like, you know, everything kind of being separated? So it's less worry of a all out attack, less points of danger. Fair point. You know, when you spread it out, there's there's a little more security with that. But just think about the ease it would be to do everything on the one place. And I want it. If there's anyone out there that I believe that can get this done. It is Elon Musk. And if the rumors are true, because again, right now we're kind of in a wrestling match is is Elon actually doing this platform thing that everyone's like, he's starting his claim to be that one one site. That's the end all be all of everything he says before. He thinks that X could take 50 percent of all the financial actions within the next couple of years. I'm like, basically, that's insane. He's capturing the West. Yeah, that's how I read that. We chat is going to capture the right. He's probably not going to be able to make any serious headways within China. You know, they've chosen WeChat. They have backdoors and WeChat. Of course, the CCP is heavily involved in all WeChat encryption issues or lack thereof. And so I think he's going to try to have the super app of the West. Yeah. Now, Chad, who do you think is going to win? Is it going to be Jeff Bezos? Is it going to be Elon Musk? I think it's going to be one of those two. I think Mark Zuckerberg might really try once we have the Ray Ban ocular. You know, he's going to try to take over with the AR angle. I think by then it might be too late. And we're all just going to kind of be used to sending money with our phone. Do you really want to send money with your glasses and you're like touching the air like send Tim 20 bucks or the burrito? You know, I don't know. I think people just rather do beep boop boop and then send it with their phone. We're going to briefly interrupt this. I just want to give a special shout out to our sponsor, Steak. Big shout out to Steak. We love it. Elon does have the walrus move advantage, just saying. I mean, that is a tough move to beat. It's going to be I mean, it's a serious move. It's up there with like rear naked chokehold and the figure four leg lock, I believe, and the torture rack. It is up there with all those. Yeah, I'm betting on Elon between Elon and Zuck, although Zuck is very, very capable manager, obviously capable CEO. I think Elon is just a little bit more capable. And I think he gets the the the changing shifts of culture a lot better than Jeff Bezos. Here's my Jeff Bezos impression. That's a funny joke. Ha ha ha ha. And it's just it comes off a little unnatural. And Elon just seems a little bit more real. It seems like a more real human being. Elon would use the Elon would be in a fight with with Zuck and he'd do the oil check. OK, yeah, I can see that those who don't know the wrestling oil check is, you know, you're putting the finger, you know, dipstick check in the oil. Folks, it's like in Free Guy. Great movie. Great movie. All right. Let's move on and talk about Bitcoin. Most people want to talk about Bitcoin. Kelly Boy like the torture rack reference as Lex Luger, I believe. All right. Bitcoin whales accumulate. All right. That's two wrestling references. No more. Don't worry. Bitcoin whales accumulate. Fifty nine point two percent of circulating supply data shows. So the whales have 60 percent of all the corn post analysis revealed that a relatively small cohort of addresses is amassing a considerable amount of the currency circulating supply with a total of fifteen thousand addresses, each holding over one hundred collectively commanding eleven point five million coins. What is important to realize here? There's a lot of centralized exchanges. So you take out Binance wallet, you take out Coinbase wallet, you take out eToro wallet, you take out Jack's blocks, eight thousand Bitcoin wallet. Then it starts to look a little bit more decentralized. But, you know, a lot of people are OK holding their Bitcoin on a centralized exchange. I wouldn't recommend doing it in any serious, you know, heavy manner, any high percentage manner. But a lot of people like the convenience. I you know, I have a OK amount on Coinbase. I'm not going to chastise you for that. It's worth noting that the total number of addresses created on the chain has recently surpassed the one billion mark. Although out of these addresses, those with the balance are only around 45 million. Those most created addresses do not currently have a balance on them. Moreover, London based banking and financial services firm Standard Chartered has suggested that the price of Bitcoin could surge to 50K this year and then could breach 120K by 2024 is close. And another major bullish price prediction for Bitcoin. I don't know if we're going to go that high. If you want to, you know, rewind four years, December 2020, we just hit new all time high. We just hit 20K. If you use the four year cycle, that means November ish, October ish. We would just be hitting 60K. So I don't know if we can go from 60K to doubling in two months or, you know, I think we're closer to 60K at the end of 2024. What's your year in 2024 price prediction? Yeah, I know it's you know, you probably need to think about it a little bit more. I'm throwing it out there. 69K. Yeah. Well, the first thing I'll say is 50K is not going to happen in 2023. Barring we find out about Bitcoin ETFs within the next couple of weeks. That's probably the only thing left that would be able to pump it that high. And even that I don't think would do it. Those things take a while before the real money comes in. End of 2024, I think there's a decent chance that before the end, we might double top of that 69, maybe set a brand new all time high. But if we're asking December 31st, I don't know. Like I think we'll be wrestling close to that area, but I think it'll be a little lower. All right. Will you watch Zuck Musk cage match? 70 % are saying yes. All right. Bitcoin holdings on over the counter desk decline. 33 % OTC desk balances are widely considered a proxy for institutional activity. Still, caution is warranted when drawing conclusions. Those held in addresses tied to the OTC market. If you don't know, the OTC market is a whale wants to buy a billion dollars worth of Bitcoin. He doesn't go into an exchange and clear the order books where his first Bitcoin is $2 ,000 cheaper than his last Bitcoin. He's going to go to over the counter person who wants to sell a billion dollars Bitcoin. And they don't want the first Bitcoin they sell to be $2 ,000 more expensive than the last Bitcoin they sell. So they have aligned incentives. And so they'll meet in a park with some briefcases, you know, they'll sit down with the newspaper. I don't I don't think it works that way. They meet in a hotel lobby in Dubai, and then they like open up their balances, and then they do it that way. It just makes it where, you know, they settle on a price and they don't impact the markets too much with these large, large purchases. As of Thursday, the so -called OTC balance stood at 5 ,000 Bitcoin or about 150 million of the market cap. And that's a 33 % slide from the one year high of about 7 ,600 Bitcoin at the end of June. So that's going to fluctuate. High volume traders and institutions typically deal with OTC desk to avoid affecting the market price of the asset. For that reason, activity is said to reflect the behavior of large, sophisticated traders. In the past, some analysts have associated upticks and downticks in OTC desk balances with miners' intentions to build, run down their coin stash there. So just something to watch out, but I wouldn't worry too much just yet, just because it's down 33%. Really not too much when you're comparing it to the all -time high for the year there.
A highlight from Eric Metaxas
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. It's a nutritious smoothie of creamy, fresh yogurt, vanilla, protein powder and a mushy banana for your mind. Drink it all down. It's nummy. I want vanilla. I want vanilla. Here comes Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks, welcome to Tuesday. Chris, it's Tuesday. Happy Tuesday. Welcome back. I still I still have my tan from Greece. Today, I promised that I would tell about my adventures in Greece. We have time for that. Yeah, I think we do. I mean, depending on how long I think, I think we're going to get John's Mirack in our two again today. We did that yesterday, and I think we'll try to get him in our two. But I just wanted to tell the story. Of being in Greece, because it's been a couple of years since I've been there. And anybody I anybody who's read my book Fish Out of Water knows my connection to Greece and knows that my dad came over from Greece in 1955 and my whole lifetime. But especially when I was a kid, he would just regale me with stories of growing up in Cefalonia. And in case people don't know, just as I recommend people taking the Queen Mary to to England. By the way, I forgot to say this. You can also take the Queen Mary to from England to New York. And in many ways, that might be even better because you get twenty five hour days every day. I think I said this yesterday that is there a. I mean, that seems that seems strange as a time. Sounds like time travel. It is time travel. But when you go over there every day at noon, the ship's captain comes on and says it's noon, you know, but we're moving the clock forward. It is now ship's time one p .m. and everybody like blasts off to lunch because it's already one p .m. So you lose an hour every day as you go over. Not every day. I should say it's a five, six hours, six, five hours. So one day in the middle of your journey, you don't lose an hour. But it's a bizarre thing to have these 23 hour days. So I'm recommending that people well, I'm recommending that people do. They didn't pay me to say this. I just think it was so delightful, so old school. You get dressed up every night. But coming back, I want to I want to do the coming back thing because you get twenty five hour days every day. They move, you know, at noon. It becomes 11 a .m. Kind of cool, kind of cool to get an extra hour. But anyway, so. I was saying, just as I recommend taking the Queen Mary to its canard, you have to go to canard dot com CUNARD dot com. But just as I recommend that and I will be doing it again, I people recommend visit Cephalonia because the island that we always go to in Greece, which I wrote about in my book, Fish Out of Water Cephalonia or Cephalonia, I say Cephalonia, which is kind of the old fashioned anglicized version that I grew up with Cephalonia. But the Greeks say Cephalonia. And so now a lot of people say Cephalonia with a K. But that's where we go when we go to Greece. And it's been a few years. And it is an absolutely, absolutely magical island. And when you think of Greek islands, you think of these kind of like these, you know, these travel posters of this whitewashed walls and, you know, blue and white, whatever Cephalonia is nothing like that. Cephalonia is not in the Aegean, which is between Greece and Turkey. It is off of the west coast of Greece. So it's dramatically different. The Heptanesa, the seven islands in the Ionian Sea off of the west coast of Greece have have a markedly different flavor than the Aegean Islands. And many Americans don't know about them. That's one of the fun things about going to Cephalonia is that you don't see American tourists, you see British tourists, German, Italian, whatever. When you're at the beach, you hear all these different accents and voices and stuff. It's delightful. But the Ionian Islands, anybody knows their history. Greece was under the Ottoman Empire for for the better part of four centuries. That's the Turks. Cephalonia was not. Cephalonia was under the Venetian Empire. And of course, of course, the Venetian Empire was about fifteen hundred to like, I think, seventeen ninety seven. So almost 300 years Cephalonia was under Venetian rule. And then the British came in for a good part of the 19th century. So it has a very British strong British influence. And it is just nothing like when you think of a Greek island. Cephalonia is very lush, very green. And that's where we go, basically. And it's so beautiful. People think I'm exaggerating. So I recommend if you go there yourself, you'll see. You'll see I'm not exaggerating. It's unbelievably beautiful. And you almost don't know where to begin. They have one. They have a number of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen in my life. One of them is world famous. If you look it up, you'll see I'm not making this up. It's called Mirtos, M -Y -R -T -O -S. Mirtos Beach is one of the greatest beaches in the world. And photo even the photos don't do it just you just can't do it justice. But it's mind blowingly beautiful. But there are a number of gorgeous beaches there. But it's not about the beaches. There is tremendous history that's there. And I've talked on this program about the tomb of Odysseus, basically Mycenaean civilization, which is we're talking like 1600 B .C. to around 1100 B .C. is the Mycenaean era. And I know I've talked about it on this program before. But Heinrich Schliemann was this German madman who was convinced that the world of Homer existed. So I got to say this, just just I got to explain this so people understand.
A highlight from Eric and Chris
"Folks, welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Would you consider yourself smart, insightful, precocious, astute, clever? Wise beyond your years and good at checking a thesaurus for synonyms. Well, then you've come to the right place. Here now is the handsome, attractive, striking, gorgeous, and quite frankly, breathtaking Eric Metaxas. Hey, Chris. Hello. I'm back. Welcome back. How was your trip? You went around the world in 80 days, I believe. Not exactly. But I am tan, and I wanted that to be the most important thing that I covered. I've been away for about three weeks. And the main thing that I did was work on my tan. And obviously I went to a clinic in Mexico and got hair plugs. And I wanted that to be all healed by now, but it got infected. And so that's why I'm wearing this wig. Yeah, the wig looks great. Whoever. Well, it's the same old wig that I've always worn on this program. But I wanted the I wanted the hair plugs to be ready now, but it just got it was not a good clinic. It was a hair plugs in Mexican. I don't know. I don't know. OK, so I hope I'm joking. I really am tan because I was in Greece. And today today is going to be a tough day. Today is like reentry, you know, like into the Earth's atmosphere because I've been away for quite a while. I needed this vacation. Now, if anybody who gets my email, if you subscribe to my email from Eric Metaxas dot com, I have shared a lot and a lot of photos, a lot of crazy stuff that's happened in the last three weeks, which I want to share on this program. But if you've gotten the emails, you've seen the photos. And that's you know, I think the cliche that a picture is worth a thousand words is kind of true. Like there's there's some fun pictures, but most people who listen to this program don't follow me on Instagram and probably don't get the email. Now, of course, you can get that. It's free. It's no commercials. Just go to Eric Metaxas dot com and we'll send you these emails once or twice a week with these most of the interviews and stuff. But I, I shared a lot of this stuff, but I wanted to share on this program today kind of where I've been for people who don't get my emails or who haven't been following me on Instagram, which, again, I think most people who listen to this as a radio program or podcast follow me in those ways. So the first thing I would add, I would add that this is kind of like, you know, you have a friend, the neighbors who go away on a trip and the cliche is they come back with it used to be on the slides and you would come over and they would show you their vacation photos and you'd be polite, but you really didn't want to sit through so many. But your trip was really actually very interesting. And I think your listeners actually do want to hear what you did. So this is the audio version of that. Oh, you're you're you're exactly. Well, listen, anybody who's read my book, Fish Out of Water. I don't think I say it in the book, but we had neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Right. They passed away many years ago. But I remember they came back from a vacation and they invited the neighborhood kids over. This was like 1973, I think, maybe even 72. But they wanted a vacation. They invited us over to see the slide. So that's what this is going to be like. Now, let me start. Instead of starting at the beginning, I'll start at the end. We flew in from Athens yesterday. And I don't know about you, but like overseas travel, when you get back, it's an 11 hour flight from Athens. We got back, we were totally fried. We were so fried last night that normally you'd want to stay up to a certain hour, but we couldn't do it. So we went to sleep way too early. Like I think I was in REM sleep by six thirty last night. Which means what? Which means I woke up at about two fifteen a .m. today. That's right in time for an early morning breakfast. What do you do at two fifteen a .m.? Well, you try to pretend it's not two fifteen and you try to sleep a little longer, but your body won't go to sleep because you've had your sleep. So what I did is I turned on the TV and Turner Classic Movies is featuring in the middle of the night Czech cinema from the 1960s. So I saw a 1963 film called Something Different, and it actually was amazing. I never thought I'd be talking about Czech cinema. New Wave Cinema from 1963 on this program. But it was actually bizarrely good. And what's the tone of these films? Are they comedies? Are they romances? Action? What is it? This was a film by a woman director. And now, ladies and gentlemen, I am going to talk about my vacation in Greece and London and on the Queen Mary to with Suzanne. I'm going to talk about that in a minute. But I'm just telling you, so last night we went to bed so early that I woke up so early that I know to do with myself, turn on the TV. And I'm watching Czech cinema, 1963. And it was it was really like, you know, when you recognize a film, when you basically say like, I know this is good. Like there were things about the direction of it that I thought this is next level. It was in some ways so bizarre. It was two stories. They kept cutting back and forth between them. And they were not linked. But one was about a gymnast. Am I really talking about this on the program? It was it was I'm all in. I'm intrigued. One was about a real gymnast. I can't think of her name right now, but she was a big deal gymnast. She competed in the Olympics in 56 and 60. And her father was a gymnast. Again, Czechoslovakian. And I got to tell you, they they made an actual film with her. It was a film, wasn't a documentary. So she's playing the role of a gymnast in the film. But it's like very intense and stuff. And then they had this other story of a woman and her husband and their young kid. It was just just bizarrely compelling. And it wasn't meant to be funny, but it was just good. I think my problem is that when you come from Europe to America, you just my body's not here yet. So I think this was the name of the film is called Something Different, which this segment is. And the gymnast was Ava Bosakova. That's correct. He was a gold medalist. Go to the head of the class. So, yeah, but but it's that's half of the story. But it was filmed very interestingly. I mean, filming her routines and stuff, as though it's part of like an actual movie versus a documentary film.

We'll take another look at markets for you in about fifteen minutes. Thanks much very Doug about three minutes past the hour let's take a look at some of these top stories that we headlined for you. Airbus securing the largest aircraft order in aviation history from India's biggest airline. Let's get the story from Bloomberg's Scott Carr. Airbus will sell 500 A320 planes to India's dominant airline In indigo top executives from both companies announced the sale at the Paris Airshow. The sale brings indigo's order backlog close to 1 ,000 planes. Indian carriers have been stocking up on aircraft to handle increasing volumes in the world's fastest growing major aviation market. Indigo already has a local market share of 61%. Now the airline expects to double in size and scale by the end of the decade with plans to increase operations in Central Asia. Airbus had predicted in June that aviation center of gravity will shift Port toward Asia with China and India driving growth. Scott Car, Bloomberg Daybreak Asia. And despite record orders for aircraft aviation industry veterans are warning of a market with signs of overheating. Airlines are struggling to meet high demand since travelers storm back to the skies following the pandemic. Here's Steve Udvasase, he is the co -founder of Aelis. I think right now Third of mentality ordering just to protect future slots. The question is will all of those aircraft deliver as currently contracted? Will many of them get deferred? Or Airlines will opt out of some of the aircraft or swap with other buyers. Meantime, the CEO of Qatar Airlines Akbar Al -Bakas also said airlines are flooding the market with a huge number of aircraft and he thinks the aviation supply chain may not return to 2019 levels for at least the next couple of years. Bakas also sees airfares remaining high for some time. Well Chinese banks will likely cut their benchmark lending rates today for the first time since August of 2022. Bloomberg's Bonnie Ao has more from Hong Kong. China's weaker than expected macro data may prompt more monetary easing. A 10 basis point cut in the medium -term lending facility rate last week implies the rate prime will be cut a similar amount. Consensus is that lenders would trim the one -year loan prime rate to 3 .55 % from 3 .65 % and the five -year quote is expected to be cut by a wider 15 basis points to 4 .15%. The five -year is the reference rate for mortgage loans. A deeper cut there is expected to give some extra support to the struggling property market. In Hong Kong, Oni I'm Ao, Bloomberg Daybreak Asia. Alright, five minutes past the out And the US -China dialogue went well enough that Secretary of State Antony Blinken did meet with President Xi Jinping and Baxter's got more, Ed.

Both were stated in news briefings to I afterward came to Beijing to strengthen high level challenge of communication to make clear our positions and intentions in areas of disagreement, and to explore areas where we might work together, when our interests align on shared transnational challenges, and we did all of that. And through a challenge later, Xi. The Chinese side has made our position clear, and the two sides It's have agreed to follow through with the common understandings President Biden and I had reached in Bali. And now those differences in come common defense. That means investing in our own capacities and in secure resilient supply chains. pushing for level playing fields for our workers in our companies defending against harmful trade practices and protecting our critical technologies so that they aren't used against us. and an admonishment and from Xi.

Leadership Lessons from a US Army General Maj Gen John Gronski (retd) - burst 11
"A gunnery. Sergeant michael burkhart was the who was the explosive ordinance disposal team leader went down to that site with two young marines and they were going to conduct a post blast analysis to determine a tactics techniques procedures insurgents. Were using so we could try to prevent these attacks from happening again in the future and when gunny burkhardt got down there with two young rains was chaotic. The soldiers were cisterna. Seen the ad that a chaos there were two reporters from the omaha world herald newspaper there there were embedded reporter so anyway going burkhard gets down. There sees the destroyed up. Armored humvee sees a crater near that up armored humvee bow four feet in diameter a couple of feet deep makes an assumption that that's for that roadside bomb that destroyed that humvee was placed jumps down into crater. Take a closer look as soon as he did that. He realized he made a mistake because he could see in the dirt in front of him to artillery shells. Red detonation cord running in the nose was a roadside bomb. That an insurgent have placed their so. He took his k bar knife. Cut the red debt. Detonation cord to neutralize that roadside bomb. He didn't see a third artillery shell into dirt behind him in that crater. An insurgent was off in the distance. Hit a button. On a that nation device that artillery shell exploded not going burkhardt about fifteen feet into the air lands on the dirt road unconscious pants soaked with blood. Our soldiers call a medevac helicopter. Ride away go up tomb start. Cut his pants off. Start tending to his boons after few minutes burkhart regains consciousness. The soldiers couldn't believe that and and he's laying there and he asked the soldiers if he has both of his legs because they had no no sensation from the waist down. They sure to me had both of his legs. They continue to work on 'em couple minutes later. He gets a tingling sensation in his legs. He tells the soldiers he wants to stand up. Soldiers couldn't believe that this guy had just gotten blown up and so we struggles to his feet. He standing there to soldiers around him. The medevac helicopter comes in lands on the ground behind them. The soldiers point to the stretcher On the ground in front of the misogony. We've got you know. Gotta put you on a stretcher and carry you to that helicopter. He looks at the soldiers and he says i'm not going to have you carry me that helicopter on a stretcher. I'm going to walk there under my own power. Because i don't want the insurgents of the pleasure of seeing me being carried that helicopter and easy. He says that he raises his hand into the air and gives the insurgents which i will call a one finger salute reporter reported from the omaha world heritage takes a picture of him standing there Groin protector. you know. In in front of his private area there. No pants on finger thrown up into the air soldiers around him. You'd say the helicopter the background. That picture became an iconic picture of the iraq war but what is deleted Point of the story. And the reason i tell this story and the reason. I think it's important. The leadership point of this story is member told you. He had two young marines with them that day. He knew he was going to have to recover from his wounds. He knew what all the roadside bomb attacks were getting that those two young marines were going to have to be out there probably later on that day routes realizing roadside bombs. The reason he wanted to walk to that helicopter instead of being carried there had nothing at all to do with what he thought and surgeons for thinking. He wanted to walk to that helicopter so we would not shatter the confidence of those too young marines. Pseudo leadership point is even after getting blown up ten minutes earlier. His main concern was not with his own wounds. His bank concern was with those two young marines. Who he was leading an isn't that what leadership is all about. And we talked about that looking out for the welfare of those you lead rather than your own welfare and that's exactly what gandhi burkhardt exemplified that day. And that's why. I like to tell that story that i read read that story. I had to read it again. Because i was laughing because i could just see i. I have friends who are marines right by the way. There's no such thing as an ex marine okay. the just doesn't exist. I've been told that countless times by my friend there's just no such thing they they may be quote unquote have retired at the end of their name. But they're still all. And and and i just thinking about them go. That's exactly what jimmy would. That's exactly what he would have done. That's what bob would have done. He would have done the same thing. I i can. Just see it. I just great story but it was truly the surprise in that lesson was not. I thought it was going to be resiliency. It is but the point is that he cared so much about making sure that those other two young marines were their that their mental emotional state was not shaken. Yeah and you know jay that think about this as leaders we face adversity almost every day in whatever organization were leading the some degree and and sometimes things get tough honest and the point is as a leader. You can't be thinking. I'm an figuratively. I'll use this. You know you can't be thinking. I'm cold i i'm hungry. You know i. I'm shivering right. No you you've got to show those you're leading that you know what i've got the resiliency to overcome this. And because i do you have the resiliency to overcome. They might be called. I might be hungry. I might be weak. But i'm going to take care of you before i take care of myself. And that's the essence of leadership. We underestimate the modeling of behavior. Don't we when it comes to leadership absolutely. Yeah and you know what the other thing i learned in my forty years of leading soldiers also leading teams in the business sector. Is the people you lead are always watching you practice. You know you could. You could put down in writing. What your leadership philosophy is or you could verbally give some guidance about behaviors. You're looking for but those you lead are going to be watching to see you. Know how do you adhere your own guidance. Behaviors that you're looking for you. Exemplify those behaviors and your followers are always watching and your actions speak so much larger than larger louder than your words. Do

I tried to track him down. But i had no luck whatsoever. Oh that's pitt yes. He'd probably changed his name and he was a clever clogs. He was certainly capable of reinventing himself completely. If he wanted to that such a shame. I can't help wondering do you wonder. Don't you still want to no not really. I gave that up. Life's too short. He didn't care enough about us to want to know how we were anything about us. Why should we waste time wondering about him. Oh i understand that. But but what helen. Yes darling helen.

"When you're in between those ages you can just chalk it up to being young and say well you know. What do you do for a living and the kind of say. Oh do this or that. But i eventually want to do that. And you just chalk it up to being young that you're not doing the shit that you wanna be doing but you can only do that for so long and then eventually you know you have to kind of become part of society.

It doesn't matter who you're following. It doesn't matter who you're looking at. It doesn't matter if it's the rock or it's the president united states. Everyone's a little bit lost. People don't know what tomorrow has like. We can only assume what tomorrow has. We're all trying to do our best and so continue to ask questions not only ask questions but ask you know work on asking better questions over a period of time so you can get better answers an income up with solutions. I think every single thing that you're wondering about And every single problem that you may have in your life. They're all fairly solvable. Maybe you know maybe not. Everything is maybe. Maybe you're not you're never going to be your most likely never going to be problem free but you can reduce all of your problems by continue to investigate and continue to ask. Questions osa mock. Oh some love that. Love that and i will leave it there guys just them. We've run over by about ten minutes birthmark. Andrew just want to thank you for coming on coming onto club. And this he's been he's been really really good really really great answers and it's been a few on. Its as a say i remember. It was a time when i was lost once and i didn't injured knee enough for i. Just don't want to do. And after i picked up a barbell i'll go into cross van. I sti- following mark and You certainly give me an inspiration over years and to be talking now and share in a review and asking questions is has been great and i'm really really appreciative. So because we're gonna shut down the room. I just want to say thank mark and thanks for doing this really really great for. Thanks for coming on everybody. That's been known instead. Ask questions and please follow up place for the police for the club and yet guys you have a great day you have a quiet evening but once again mark and you thank you so much. He's been ruled pleasure and enjoy whatever. Thanks so much guys take care. Thank you so much appreciate it appreciate you guys take care of. You wanna have a great evening great evening. Actually wh- what were. What are your thoughts on. How how that went cool. Yeah thought they asked a lot of cool questions. Always good to have You know different people asking different questions. And that's that guy's a fan That last question was an interesting one. I think i think when you when you are. Someone is having problems. It's hard for the information even land on you correctly you know i could. I could send a video to somebody. Hey man if you watch us. I really think it will help you because it. It helped me. But i'm in a different spot than somebody else. When i send it to them they might not hear any of the message or they might misinterpret some of the message. You know i could send something somebody that says that shares a bunch of stories about The woman who wrote harry potter the star wars story the raw. You know the semester loan. Rocky story i could send somebody a bunch of this information and someone could misinterpret that that like i need to. I need to wait it out. I need to stick to my guns. My ideas are bad ass. And i know that they're going to work at some point and it's like well. Maybe you didn't write harry potter. You know what i mean like. Maybe maybe your idea is not that. And maybe my point in sending it was to just shell that these people never gave up on themselves and they never gave up on these projects and Someone can kinda misinterpret that a different way. And just you know think that they're going to all of a sudden gets spotted by somebody and something. Miraculously cool is going to happen for them. So i think that that last question was a tough one to really answer because it just depends on like the stages of that. You're in whether you're even capable of receiving the very question that you just you. Just ask something. How do i lose weight. And when sudha somebody starts spitting out how much hard work or how much work there is to be done. You're immediately shutting it down you resistant to it because you're just not really ready for it. I don't wanna go on much longer. But i would say like or i would ask you. Is it similar to like somebody trying to get on a Like i want to lose weight but all the junk And then you say no. How about you try this. That's going to be really hard for them to just click over and start eating a little bit healthier right so if they are in a bad spot you give them some good advice. It's probably just not gonna hit my take awhile and just might be. They might kind of be offended or they might go and try to do it and then they find out. It's just it's way more difficult than they thought and rather than working on incremental progress trying to be a little bit better. They say fuck it. I'm just not ready for that. You know i just. I'm not. I'm not good at that. I and then people get kind of negative self talk and it just becomes a snowball of kind of self Of negative self talk. Yeah all right. Well we'll get out of here if you guys enjoyed that. I think it's called fitness. Fifteen all try to do any links down the description below or Just pay attention to the intro. That will have all of the solid information please.

"What what if it was k to get into where you all now in on all aspects of life as well not just business i think a big key for just about anybody is confidence and consistency. A when i was I think i have confidence from a having. Great parents and be Being physically capable of doing quite a bit. I was fairly athletic and able to mimic stuff. That coaches would teach and things like that so that gave me a lot of confidence. It made me feel good I think people need to find stuff that makes them feel really good. I know like the the school the classroom didn't make me feel very good at You it was put into special classes. And i just kind of learned in pick things up a lot slower. I don't know if i had like attention deficit disorder. I don't know if that was invented at that time. I don't know if that was around at that. Time and Forever reason that was very difficult for me but You know that actually ended up being a huge attribute of mine which i can now look back on and say oh my god. This has been a blessing of mind the entire time. Because i don't mind for things to take a long time because i kinda learn slowly anyway and so Even from some of the lifts and stuff people have seen me do they might not how slow and how cautious i am with a lot of the moves that i make There there's not always a lot of thought to my move but there's a is definitely i definitely like to take them Just like you take steps in the gym incremental progress over really really long period of time so confidence and consistency have been the biggest factors. I think just. I think anyone That you look at that. Successful would have that in their recipe. being confident and And being consistent the consistency will help with confidence. Actually because you'll actually be better. You know having a skillset is is really important so anyone. That's looking to make money anyone. That's looking to be successful in any category. If you wanna go as vertical as you possibly can in that category then you must become a material expert. You must learn a lot. You must absorb a lot and in my opinion. The only way that i could figure out how to do that is to be consistent. You could read books you could go to college. You could go to further schooling. You could go to technical school. you could You could just get around. People that are that are good in that particular thing like jitsu you can get around and you jitsu people. You wanna bodybuilding get around bodybuilders. You wanna powerlifting and get around powerlifters you could also go a different route and you could become strength coach and you can learn a lot about the sport that you're in or you can learn a lot about policy but whatever the case is you're gonna have to be immaterial expert in some way In order for you to be Really much of anything In that particular field or thing that you're trying to do the only way to get there is through consistency. Tim feroce step by step ferociously. That's right post the bet. Yeah absolutely yeah usa mark so just going to a quick room reset. i'm just mindful. we've got you for forty five minutes.

Know that you've been a professional wrestler palace. The now you doing great things in business and inspiring many many people again. I'll let you take the reins man. We'll see if we can get some questions guy all right here we go so yeah all started when some asshole kicked my new york jets football into the woods and you can kind of cut to a rocky. Montage of meat training started lifting. When i was about twelve had two older brothers that were into lifting. My oldest brother was my childhood hero and He was big into football and big and lifting weights and so i followed in his footsteps and so did my brother chris. We've been a family that was Way into lifting weights way back before it was cool and not only were re into lifting weights. But we're also into powerlifting gym. That i kind of grew up in was a powerlifting type of facility although people didn't even call it powerlifting back then people were just into being big and strong and there was none of this No cardio equipment and things like that. People weren't talking about get skinny. People weren't talking about getting ripped they really just care about your performance and he cared about lifting heavy ask stuff. I started Lifting in a very young age and was immediately a little bit better than some of my friends. And i kinda recognized. Hey this is probably something that you should pursue. And so by the time i was about fourteen or so. I started compete. I broke some state. Records broke some national records and Just made me feel good about myself. And i wasn't The best in the classroom and so I had something kind of lean on or something to fall back on. That made me feel great about myself. i played a lot of Football i did track. I did boxing. I tried to do everything. I could to avoid powerlifting but it was always there. It's the girlfriend that i never wanted. That just kept coming back trying to annoy me And eventually i just gave up to it and surrendered to it and became powerlifter and eventually squad. Thousand eighty benched eight hundred fifty four pounds and dead. Lifted seven sixty six. Those are all equipped numbers. Where i wore bencher squat suit and things like that too. So people get a grasp of the type of lifting. I was doing because they might think man. Those numbers are absolutely insane. There are still heavy. No matter how you slice it but It was equipped powerlifting. At the time there was no raw power thing When i was coming through the ranks was just lifted and didn't really care what someone else War Gathered some professional wrestling for a while. And that's where i met people like john cena. The rock got to rub elbows with a lot of great individuals. And that kind of stuff. Help me recognize that. There's many different levels of success and there's many different levels of Genetics and all those kinds of things and it's been helpful for me to have that past Moving into the things that i do now and then also with professional wrestling. You have to have the gift of gab and be able to talk in front of people and That was tremendous in my development of being able to speak and once i got into powerlifting more as an adult i was like you know. I need to film this stuff. I need to share this with people. People are gonna think this dope. And so i started a youtube channel in two thousand seven. Probably about a year after youtube even started and Ben on social media from the jump and that is something that helped me to be known and then also something that helped me to be known as the film bigger stronger faster than my brother. Chris bell directed and People may know me from that or they may know me for my invention which is the slingshot a Support upper by device for bench. Press push ups and dips. And now i have a complete line of stuff that behind that elbow sleeves niece sleeves hip circles and so forth. And i guess kinda the rest is history from there so some people know me as a creator of some products some know me as a powerlifter and some people now me from the film bigger stronger faster about whatever i mean. I've i've i've folded for quite a few years and obviously now the success of sling. Charming up on your products as well and you know it's massive around the world but would you think was to become so successful from just be arrest..

"fifteen" Discussed on Talk Is Sheep - Wild Sheep Society of British Columbia
"I'm not quite sure yet. You know as i say. It's a very intensive process and it takes Farmers are with sheep to to want to do this. Voluntary and And to work with us to clear the heard and then to continue monitoring that their flocks is number main smokey free so we've been very lucky to work with producers in british columbia that see this as an issue and want to be involved know mycoplasma over not tend to cause disease are clinical signs in domestic sheep but it can over time and Have clinical effects to in terms of decreased production and possibly weaker lambs and lambs domestic lambs and kids can actually succumb to the disease too. So it's not a major issue. It's my opinion in the best interest of everyone involved to at least know the status of their flock and You know we can work together to come up with solutions. That even better. Yeah fantastic just for our listeners. While she said he be has played a funding role for some of these studies. Have been done Dr swanson has been involved in like kylie mentioned Studies are being done and b. c. Because we have access to that drug that they don't have access down south so Thanks to our members for stepping up to help support The studies in my understanding from speaking with helen kylie is that there's some really positive outcomes and but we needed more data and then As luck would have it. The pandemic caused big problem there. So we couldn't do a bunch of these tests for a number of Trial for these trials that we normally would have and so kind of the we probably would add more substantial more effective data. had it not been for the pandemic. is that correct. That's correct. yes so more. Trials were planned but also the follow up which is really important to see what the status that the flock is you know how long after treatment that they maintain that moby free status is Yeah we haven't been able to reach out to access properties at work with producers because of the pandemic can human safety concerns so hopefully it will that will be an ongoing thing and hopefully we have some more positive data from that when when we can Absolutely and you know. I think it's worth mentioning right now. at this point is that there's a lot of domestic producers that are very keen to they care about the health of wildlife as well and while cheap and there's been a lot of producers at step up We get we frequently will get emails from producers. That are you know. They want to start up a new You know May be a landing operation or a small operation in while she habitat. They reach out to us on on what they need to do. And how to be responsible. And then we have these producers like you mentioned that are working with us Taking their own time money and effort to to make a difference and really there's not a huge financial benefit to them for it but they care about wildlife. So you know some people think that we have a very combative relationship with the domestic And the egg industry and the and that's not the case with some excellent producers that really have been keen to work with us in and were super grateful for that so Appreciate the work that you guys have done..
