Seventy nine percent of small businesses are undercharging for their product and service. I know everyone that's listening right now. You know you need a pay raise because you pulled that pricing out of your hiney. Let's be clear we all pull it out of her honey. What is dennis charge. What a charge. What is bomb charge. When was jim charge. I'm gonna charge this basma. Nothing nothing to do with your pricing. So i go through a formula. 'cause even my business when i first started right i was undercharging. Five dollars right. Which doesn't sound like a lot of money but five dollars times three hundred customers. Right was fifteen hundred dollars a month. I was losing times twelve months. That was eighteen thousand dollars a year. I was losing and that was off a one service. So you you look at. You're losing money because you won't take the time to get clear on what it is. You're doing eighty eight percent of small businesses. Don't hit that hundred thousand dollars. We can go get jobs. One hundred grand. So i want to if you're going to do this and if you're going to sacrifice your time your money your retirement account hawk your home right. Get a home mortgage max out your credit cards.

Seeking Refuge On The Open Road

"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out

Underwater Navigation

"Last weekend. I was teaching a private open water class to a woman who wanted to get her confined water. Training done before heading out to the south pacific to work and to complete are open water dies. That's pretty nice. Don't you think well as we were finishing up our classroom work. We reviewed the logistics for our pool session. The next day. I pulled up the map on my computer with the street view to show her where to enter the building and the location of the parking and as we were closing out she said just give her the address. She'll let the gps in her phone. Get into the pool. Pretty simple and she arrived on time the next day at the pool. Ready for our session. Now during our pool sessions we have our students where computer on the wrist. I like to let them get used to the feel and also looking at the computer while underwater and as i was explaining that we liked to wear the computer on our right wrist with our compass on the left wrist. She asked if there was an underwater. Gps available instead of a compass. That's a reasonable question. Right now i would say not really. I know that garment makes a dive. Computer the descent mark one that has surfaced. Gps to mark your entry and exit points but the glamour on their website states. Gps tracking and satellite communication does not work underwater technology however continues to be amazing. I did come across a company. Navigate out northridge california that is creating a solution of sorts it involves a gps gateway which is a floating radio antenna with a suspended array below and that communicate with a wrist mounted unit it uses an acoustic signals that determines the bearing and range from the gps gateway and then plot your position on the dive site. It's an interesting piece of technology and still evolving. The website for naveh made says it will be available this year. The cost of the wrist unit will be fifteen hundred dollars while the gps gateway will also come in at fifteen hundred dollars. There was some reference that they would be making the gps gateway available to boat operators. So it would appear that we are at the cusp of some new and exciting ways to navigate during our diving but as we know the proliferation adoption and success could take awhile the wrist. Mount unit is only good. If you have the gps gateway available it could take awhile until there are enough of these units out there to make to make it worthwhile purchasing a fifteen hundred dollar unit. You could end up with the gadget on your arm. That isn't going to give you what you want. So that's where we come to the tried and true underwater navigator. We all start are underwater navigation. Training deal i open water diver course when we are introduced to the compass and how to use it for some simple navigation on the surface and underwater. But if most people are like me. I wasn't really ready to navigate effectively on a dive. I needed more experience and training. We get this during our advanced open water training when we do more navigation training and conduct a navigation dive to extend our knowledge we learn about kick cycles how to measure distance and extend our skills with a compass for most people. This is pretty much the extent of their navigation training. So you'll have to make sure that you practice use your compass during a dive to set a course and see if you can return to the boat us time to judge your distance and kick cycles learned to trust your compass and you'll find your underwater navigation skills improved. You can also continue your navigation training and education with the water navigation. Specialty course for the patty specialty. You go into more detail about measuring distance how to use natural navigation techniques and more use of the compass including underwater patterns after completing your knowledge development. Which can be done using the patio electronic learning platform. You'll conduct three open. Water dives to build your skills and proficiency and underwater navigation having that confidence and competence in using your compass and finding your way underwater reduces your stress and anxiety and make sure diving more relaxed and fun right now. We really aren't able to avail ourselves of underwater. Gps it sounds like there might be solutions in the future and as we have come to appreciate technology advances. We'll be standing by for now however you can't go wrong in developing your skills than the tried and true underwater navigation techniques and equipment

Budgeting Expenses While Living on The Road with Renewable Energy Worker Clayton

"Clayton. Welcome to the bigger targets. Many podcast. i'm so excited to have you today. Thanks guys. I'm really excited to be here. Appreciate all your advice. Throughout allentown cast stones awesome. Well thanks for listening. So clayton is a twenty six year old renewable energy worker living in the midwest and looking for some suggestions on financial planning in general so that he can retire early and lead his best life clinton. Why don't you walk us through your income and debts absolutely so right now. Actually our income just got cut by about forty percent girlfriend. Travels with me for work and she. Unbeknownst us lost her physician so lost forty percent of our income. I'm sitting at a salary for diem and a trailer allowance and then some rental income from a rental property that we have totalling about seven grand a month. Can you give us some background on that. So you say salary per diem and camper each just give us enough background in your job to understand why you have predicament camper allowance. Sure yes so. With the renewable energy side. We travel all over the country so ben everywhere from north dakota colorado oregon iowa and now down in texas so pretty gives me some money in basically not sleeping my own bed. Money right and then Trailer allowance. i live in a fifth wheel while on the road so kind of a unique living situation and they give me allowance for that too. Because there's obviously expenses that come with pulling a trailer and the wear and tear on the tyres and all that kind of thing so companies generous enough to give us allowances for those kind of things and yeah ok. Great eddie other sources of income besides the salary camper allowance pretty yup so we do have a rental property. that were satirized. Well we are at home so kind of one of those ideals to were living on the road but we have a home base and house hacking that home base. So that's bringing in about fifteen hundred a month for us right now and it's gonna go up hopefully the next month or two. Once we finished some slight remodels and get another room rented so it should go up to about two thousand dollars fantastic. Yeah expense side of things fixed expenses. Obviously we got the mortgage. We do have a car loan and then luckily enough again with the company. I worked for their great and they cover a lot of expenses on the road so the living allowance. The lot rent recover my lower end from camper all that kind of stuff. So it's pretty limited to mainly just jim internet's phone bills and then food things like that. So the picture informant. My head is a really strong financial position. We talked about a seven thousand dollars in income. Let's exclude the house act. We got about fifty five hundred dollars a month in income and are you kind of abbreviating that to after tax dollars. Yes yeah that's all after tax. Okay great so you got about fifty five hundred and after tax dollars plus we got income from your house hack how much is your mortgage mortgage is about twelve hundred dollars a month principal interests. I thank is around seven fifty. Our insurance is actually a little bit higher because the house situation is kind of odd. An taxes are actually relatively low about thirteen hundred a year. So awesome so even with maintenance. You're probably sitting at no more than fifteen hundred dollars. Total housing costs. What are your utilities. You think as hard to us for now just because we do live on the road and it's relatively low because we're one twice a month so i don't know maybe hundred dollars okay. So you're housing is free for all intents and purposes through the house hack. Is that right correct. Yep awesome love it. How about transportation is that also largely free because of the allowance for the camper and that type of stuff. That's another benefit as Transportation's pretty much free. I gotta company truck and again the company. I work for their so generous to let me use that personal time to you which is awesome. We do have a vehicle for my girlfriend and we do have a debt on that as well and believer sitting at eighty five hundred or so see if a balance of eighty five hundred on that in cash payment associated with it okay. What would you kind of estimate your total expenses to be housing. We've got to close zero. What would you say outside of housing. Your monthly expenses are unrelated to work man. I'd say twenty five hundred ish maybe a month and that's going to be broken out between that car payment in a gym and entertainment this types of things normal year when it's not twenty twenty. We tended to spend a little bit more than now. It's a little bit less but yeah okay great. So what i'm seeing. Here is an ability to accumulate at least fifteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month in cash flow on an ongoing basis. Is that right yes awesome and then when you look at your financial position do you feel that. The opportunities are going to be on the income side on the expense side or on the capital allocations piece in terms of managing the money. You're accumulating i say right now are sitting pretty good as far as the income. I feel pretty solid with the income side of things granted like i said we did lose some of that coming in but i believe there is work to do on our expense side of things. 'cause i don't accurately track it. Everything i do is rough estimates. So i know what my phone is monthly. I know what the car payment is monthly but the food and all that stuff who knows i mean sometimes we go out and have fun and go out to local italian restaurant or whatever it is so perfect so i think we're gonna have a phone with this because your expense the way you've just described your situation. We don't housing expense. And i see a path forward here. Where if for example if your path that over the next year to you don't have to pay for housing and you don't have to pay for vehicle at least in the short run. I mean you get to that point and you have a thousand dollars per month is what i understand per diem. Is that right. Roughly a thirty six days. So depending on when i'm work that worked when i'm at home so about thousand

Amelia bellefonds found her calling seventeen years ago while she was teaching with head. Start a program that provides early childhood education to low income children and families. She worked with all kinds of kids over the years but one in particular stood out. He was a four year old boy with frequent tantrums and very little verbal communication. Amelia and our fellow teacher wanted to help him so they began researching his behavior and discovered that he might be autistic wanting to learn more. Amelia began studying applied behavior analysis. A scientific approach that can be used to reduce challenging behavior and teach new skills and children with autism. Amelia liked aba strategies because they're easy for non-professionals to learn and can have lasting benefits for the child if they're used consistently not too long after. She started her research. She ended up switching jobs. She wanted to understand more so she decided pursue a master's degree and become a board certified behavior analyst again specializing in working with children with autism. And this is what brings us to the side hustle part of the story. Amelia started a blog called accessible. Aba dot com hoping to share insights to help parents understand more about the field and their child soon. Afterwards around christmas two thousand eighteen. Her twin sister. Diana came for a visit. Diana enjoyed writing so she offered to write some post. The goal of the blog was simply to share information with both sisters working away. They started posting one or two times a week as they built momentum. They increased to two to three times a week. After six months they were posting almost every day looking back. Amelia says she would have started posting daily to the blog right from the beginning. But it's always better to pick up the pace as you go along than lose momentum by slowing down. They started out blogging just for parents but eventually expanded to have a separate log for each of their target audiences parents teachers and professionals altogether these blogs get over forty thousand page views a month they also started offering courses on you to though now they self host courses well sisters celebrated their first sale overtaxed even now more than two years into their business they still celebrate every sale with a text some days. It feels like texting all day long in addition to online courses accessible. Aba also offers three levels of membership per nine dollars a month or ninety five dollars a year members get self paced learning and downloadable content. They can pay a bit more and get all that plus monthly videos and a monthly free product. They can pay a bit more. Still get everything. Plus thirty minute monthly one on one call. Before the pandemic hit the sisters had plans to attend a couple of live events but when everything was cancelled they decided to double their efforts on the website they also put together some of the content they already had and self published a book on amazon called. Aba fundamentals for parents. Finally they're starting to post on youtube as a way to extend their reach ameliorate. Miss that is difficult as the pandemic has been it's also been a catalyst is pushed them to work even harder. They're bringing in around fifteen hundred dollars a month however they've really just started to focus on monetization for most of two thousand twenty. They were focused solely on growing the blog and developing those courses. The pandemic hasn't been the only challenge plus opportunity. They've also had to deal with moving to a new state. Changing jobs illnesses and kits despite the business. Amelia says. they've gained a lot from the experience. There's a feeling of control over the future. they don't get working for someone else. They know that if they want to make more money they have to come up with a better product or offer improve their marketing. Reach a new audience or take some other action one of those things or perhaps all of them is exactly what they plan to do.

How I Discovered the Secret to Wealth

"You guys. Good morning welcome to the show and karina steward your soul. Well coach and i am so excited to be here this morning. We are running fast into these december. Energies of acceleration is accelerating right now. The energies are the energies are high exceleron mode. And what do you want to talk about today is is you're writing through these accelerated amplified peak energies if you are compromising your value if you are leading your business leading your life even from a place of compromised self worth compromised value. Then you're not going to be able to squeeze the entire juice out of this incredible potent momentum now in december we have not only twelve twelve. Which is a really powerful virtual gateway high energy that is completion energy also known as divine design energy. So it's where the soul is resting upon you squeezing you. Maybe even you might be feeling the squeeze the pressure in order to manifest your wealth. Your light your abundance into the world. And of course we have the solstice energy which is rate around the twelve twenty one mark in. That is a really powerful timeline. That's coming in. And what i mean by. That is the collective shift in our reality. So we're going to be experiencing what i've been talking about all year long. Which is that wealth. Transfer that his comment full force into the planet next year twelve twenty one is going to be the manifestation of that reset the financial soul reset a wealth transfer the money transferring over to a new system of low. It is known many talk about it. Is that quantum by manual system and it is it is quantum and we are quantum which is fortunate. I the reason i'm sharing. All of this today is that with all of these external movements that are happening. If your internal conditioning your internal environment is not aligned with is wealth is not aligned with door true wealth because you're compromising your value in this. How does this look. It looks like lowering your prices being afraid to really do what you wanna do in business holding back a call that forty your wealth holding it back and playing this inner game we can say because of either fear or walsall fear. Fear of what will happen. If i raise my prices or not having a team around you not compromising on the level of support you have compromising in any space in your life right now will show up in your business in your purpose so if you were compromising while these energies that are coming in that are shifting shifting shifting and moving quickly moving quickly into a new paradigm of wealth where that is actualized where we're experiencing it will happen is it'll be a greater polarity within you and that can create more suffering and i certainly don't want for you guys that i'm sure you don't either the years the other that i want you to be aware of is there will be a separation if you greater separation on the outside of what looks like a separation of wealth and you know there's a lot going into that i'm not gonna go into today and why that is but the main thing that i want to hear from you as or sheridan. Today's it's a simple fix. It's a simple solution if you want to ride this wave of the wealth transfer and lineup with the quantum wealth that is about to take charge of our entire planetary financial system than it is about honoring the wealth within hugh and taking the steps. Where or example will just use price because this is what comes up so often with entrepreneurs where your price of what you are giving what you are. Serving is in alignment with the actual gift. So he example my clients catherine she's a new client. She recently working with us and she really was in a fear like almost paralyzed. I would say around charging more or her programs for her mentoring programs and through some really simple coaching that i gave her to shifter rice up to a higher ticket program and having what i call a core offer. Because she didn't have a core. She was doing a little of this a little of that. You're charging maybe around thousand dollars or fifteen hundred dollars but that is you know first of all it's not gonna bring you a million that's your you know what you know. The mission neuron is some of you are on that mission in next year is going to grow millionaires hundred percent in the question. If you wanna be one of them than are you going to shift yourself into that. But with catherine

The COVID-19 Vaccine: Will You Get It?

"Welcome everybody to say what needs saying. I'm zac non brandon and today for this particular conversation were focusing on the vaccine covid. Nineteen finally has a vaccine. That by next week's time should be distributed to what is one hundred million americans before even go into that we must establish the base for what is and what is described as a vaccine. This'll be a substance that helps protect against certain diseases particularly this one covid nineteen vaccines contain a dead or weaken version of a micro. And it helps you a new system recognized and destroying the living microbe during future infection with infection being the actual covid virus. Now with that being said there are considerable side effects. That have been mentioned in the news. some bit more exaggerated than others Some random occurrences have happened in people. Have i guess. Almost use the causation. Cause algae notion like some people go around saying you can get bell's palsy from it though it can just be the population who got it this far but that will all be discussed. I'm sure throughout this conversation. Now i must throw. It's zach and ask you for covid. Nineteen vaccine trump was renamed the trump vaccine whether there's fifteen hundred dollars behind it or not for you to take it as an american zach. Will you be taking this vaccine I wanted to before i do that. I wanted to tell Let everyone that's listening. That isn't already aware Everyone what you are exactly just so that they understand like obviously we're not pretending to be experts. Understand everything on this. But in this particular instance you do have a bit of credibility given that you're in the medical community right like at least on some level. What do you do for anyone who's listening. That doesn't actually know what you do. Oh i'm a cervical neurophysiologist What that boils down to is when surgeons neurosurgeons do specific spine or anything around the nervous area type surgeries my job to make sure that during while they do the physical aspect i look at their nervous structure the eeg aspect of saw brain and just how their muscles are corresponding so say for instance. The surgeon is working within the spinal cord. He may hit a nerve or maven damage. Attract in my job. What i'm able to do a see in regards to what he's doing what muscles he may be damaging and i relate that information create that back and forth communication to make sure whatever he's doing is into detrimental to the patients nervous system. What happens is i stimulate some areas on their wrists and ankles recorded from the brain set the baseline anything that deviates from that. We alert the surgeon. Yeah and that happens with anyone so this code patients as well then we have to increase the level of precautions because they even tell extra precaution when they're drilling and the bone the bone fragments are going into the air. You have to wear Glasses you even have to wear the masks especially change clothes change garments all. That stuff's interesting. Yeah so yeah so with say. Witnessing we've pretty consistently want to make clear that we're not legal. Experts were not you know. Experts on Political experts in things. But at least in this case random has a little bit of experience in the medical field. And i have a little bit of experience in neuroscience As does brand. And so hopefully we can bring that perspective in hear other people's on i to answer your question. Am i taking it. hi. I'm still not sure if i'll be forced to take it for my job. My lab is in the kellogg. I center at michigan on. And there are patients there. And so we're not obviously. We aren't dealing with patients ourselves. Or at least i'm not but since they're in the building i wouldn't. I wouldn't be surprised if there was something forcing me to do it with that. If that happens i mean i'll do it. I'll listen. I'll take the vaccine them. You know i'm not gonna fight it. In that case if i'm not mandated to i haven't fully decided if i will immediately I may wait a little bit. But that being said we're already getting some info from the uk and other places. And so i. I mean time will tell when it's available but i think as it stands. I wouldn't take it tomorrow unless my job depended on it. That's not to say i'm doubting it but again just like you know the the initial xbox the initial five years ago out you know do whatever needs to do work out any bugs. In come see me. Back granted it might be mandated just like any old flu shot for us but in greenwich it. We'll definitely

How one bookstore has adapted to the pandemic economy

"Janet alison. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much pleased to be here. so why. don't you start by painting a picture for us. When someone walks into source booksellers and looks around for the first time. What do they see. Well they see a lot of book a lot of hope so We have a very small store. Where under nine hundred square feet. We utilize the the space very efficiently. And very well. I think so. The two walls are lined with bookshelves. And then we have movable We call them the trees because of shaped like a fear mid com trees their wheels so we can move the shelves around to acquired different uses of the space space. We used to move them out of the way if we would have in store events So we can have room for chairs and things like that. They're like the books. Go you know the just rolling over the great great. Yeah and and before the pandemic arrived How would you describe your relationship with your customers. Did you have regulars. Did you enjoy interacting with customers when they came in the door. Did you recommend books. So what was it like all its head Sort of regulars. We had a customer that we do going away party. You know when they were going away. It's like noble michigan much But right now we have you know visits from customers. Doesn't can't can't stay away but are being as safe as they can to. Still talk in kate with us and going into the pandemic. How would you describe how business was going right before. Say in january or february of this year okay. So we're doing pretty well. We've been in this space or eight years. In fact i paid all the bills of march up until the last about fifteen hundred dollars worth so When the shutdown order came along for my governor. That was to happen on a monday but when monday came it was like a curtain dropped soon and we were shocked to say the least and i thought. How are we going. What's going to happen. How how are we gonna put. It was like that it was like jerky. So we couldn't figure out quite what do but my daughter alison quickly moved us onto eight online platform. And she was doing that. I was scrambling to find grants or figure out what else we could do. So it was. It was on a shaky time. And know i knew it would not be wise to close the business even though people were doing that as it was easier to shutter the door and close the business. So that's where we are when you say that. The curtain came down. Do you mean like the government said that you couldn't have people inside or was it just people stopped coming no. It's just that people were not allowed to come and so we didn't have sales because of their absence because we would basically just have in store sales yet another you did and you started doing online sales. And i'm wondering if in those early months was there any point in time when you worried. Oh my god we might not make it. We might go out of business if things don't pick up. I think one of the unique things about. I don't know if it's just with black businesses or business that you're we we started we. We didn't have any Feeling of it's gonna work or or or or money or money so it's just movement going and in the mission may contain is more more like that but i was totally sure that we would not close the business. We have had times in the past when we've had to change and things differently and become better businesses and this is another time but we've had to change it and be a different kind and better business and when i say bitter serving the community serving our customers serving people now across the whole country because people are falling in all of that. Because was doing that so we had a couple of grants and we had unexpectedly and without requesting checks came from some very loyal customers who wanted to see us continue so that was like fried do that. Oh that's a beautiful story so there were customers that were looking out for you in a way because they wanted you to make it and then there were other organizations around the area would betray economic development corporation. We check town and are any ideas. All these are local Of places funding faces that offered grants and so those are the things that we applied for saw and we were able to in march off. Yes particularly Enabled march person in april. I think we got smog win. But that's how we stayed alive and then people responded to our online sales so much so that every time we send a package out in says we will omega tea and chocolate mousse. Oh wait so much as a little. Thank you the low big big thank you a little something but even now sometimes we throw a little re dp in the fact that the the other part of that is that doing business in a new and different way mostly online phone calls emails is. Somebody's even asking us to do things on instagram. Is changing what the needs are for employment in the store. I never thought about that until just really recently. You know we we have to figure out what it is. We really do need. We do need help but we have to figure out what we need now. That was different than before. Yeah and my last question is if the two of you have any words of advice or inspiration for other small business owners who are struggling in. What's been a really devastating year for the economy for how they can be resilient and make it through. I think business in general is saying that we do where we take risks. And we don't know what i risk tolerances until things happen. I think it's being flexible Finding out what's needed in. China meet that and and be as appreciative. And as i guess grateful grape light with with as much humor as we can because It is tough and it's not just offer office stuff for everybody and i think we just have to take courage and move on. Uc advertise that. We have come to us from people to serve them as they need to be served and keep on going janet. Alison thank you so much for your time.

How Hackers Hold Schools for Ransom

"To try to put the attack on jessica school context. We reached out to dave bertie. He covers cybersecurity for the wall street journal. And he's been writing about this uptick in ransomware attacks across the digital world. There's been an explosion of ransomware this year. It's an increasingly common way. for attackers. to target businesses healthcare organizations nonprofits or as the case may be schools in the reason. Why is just because. It's an effective business tactic if you encrypt in organizations data. That's basically what they need to function particularly in a digital environment. So as you've had a business or school that have moved more remote learning. That sort of expands. The opportunities to take advantage are there demonstrably more attacks on schools this year. Are we just aware of them. Will the first thing that's always important to point out here is that it's hard if not impossible to count the dogs that don't bark there have been probably about three hundred fifty or more. Cyber incidents reported across the united states this year in schools in schools and others probably a few dozen have been ransomware but that said those are only incidents that have been publicly reported so in many cases schools. They don't wanna take the pr hit an embarrassing situation. They don't want people to know. They paid off a criminal group to get their systems up and running. They might just keep that on the dl and not notify anyone. Even though schools aren't the richest targets around one of the reasons that hackers focus on them is that unlike big businesses. They often aren't equipped to defend themselves. We have seen attackers really zero win. On some of these districts may or may not have built out. It departments in many cases in addition to them being sort of under funded over the course of years their it departments. The also had these really really insane strange just put on them so the coronavirus remote learning getting kids up and running with their chromebooks. Or what have you so. There's really a lot of moving parts here. And i think criminals are smart enough to take advantage of them. So yeah is there just sort of like a handful of people who are in charge in your typical school district of distributing the chromebooks and also guarding against malware. I mean i would say the vast majority of school districts they don't have dedicated cybersecurity professionals even in most districts aside from the larger ones. You don't have that much of a built out. it staff. I talked to the chief information. Security officer of seattle public. School district is a very large school district in the grand scheme of things the only have eighteen. It people for that entire district of that team. Only two of them are dedicated on cybersecurity. So when you're in a position where you are suddenly thrust into remote learning environment and you need to get tens of thousands of devices online with seattle. I think it was fifty three thousand devices for students alone. I mean you really spread thin across a very big network of devices and potential threats. The threat of ransomware attacks has extended to fertility clinics and company providing software for one of the covid vaccine. Trials and the human consequences can be harrowing. There was an incident in germany where a hospital was targeted with ransomware. And as a result of that who is actually in an ambulance on her way to the hospital had to be diverted into another facility about thirty minutes farther away and this wounded women ended up dying. She didn't get care especially needed to get so german. Prosecutors basically tried to connect those dots they were asking the question can we show in a legal way. Causation between these attackers can we show causation. That they actually causes woman's death and ended the day they couldn't it was more of a correlation not causation situation. And i think that was the closest that we've come collectively to getting to a point where we're saying. Oh there's actually a cyber attack that has taken someone's life Let's walk through how this happens. Let's say you are a school administrator or hospital. it percent what do you notice. I will typically you know if if you really if something's wrong with your laptop and you really need to get to work you'll call the. It guy you'll always it guy and you'll say hey what's up with my laptop. I can't log into my email. Then typically they'll run through some scans and see that something's wrong with the system. They'll eventually get some sort of communication from one of these ransom. Learn groups saying. Hey we're here we've gotten into your system. We've locked up your data and we want x. Number of bitcoin in response. So that's really when it sort of gets this point where a school or business has to decide okay. Are we going to alert law enforcement. Are we going to call an outside forensics firm to try to understand what happened. Have we backed up all of our data within our system. And how quickly will be able to get that back. Do we want to pay this ransom payment. Like is the tradeoff. Good enough for us to do that. So there's a lot of moving parts that a lot of Businesses or schools or hospitals have to evaluate is all as happens the baltimore schools. Where just by works. They shut everything down. They sort of put everything on pause for a couple of days. Is that standard. Yeah i can typically standard. I talked with a school district in southern california. A administrator notices email was down the. It guys said it's ransomware for sure. So they physically went to every device in their school district. So we're talking about a school district of six thousand kids. Went every room went to all of their offices. Disabled unplugged device in that entire school district. And that's that's one way you know sort of a crude way of trying to limit the spread of of these things and then obviously on the back end when all these problems need to go through each and every one of those devices can them makes your their clean. Get them back online. What how often do victims turn to outside help whether that's law enforcement or whether that is digital forensics company to help them abc's extremely common there is entire ecosystem cybersecurity firms specialized in this sort of work. So you have a forensic firm that might come in to try to understand. Hey this is exactly how they got in to your computer system. This is exactly the type of software that they're using. This is exactly the type of data that they took from your system. In addition to that you have other groups. That are adept at negotiating. They actually talk to these groups. They have long term relationships in some cases with many of these groups and they say we can talk them down from ten bitcoin to five bitcoin. Whatever whatever the the number is the so it is sort of an emerging field just within cybersecurity as this is becoming a bigger and bigger problem. How much money are we generally talking about. Because my husband actually just how to ransomware attack on his nonprofit theater company and the attackers were asking for fifteen hundred dollars in bitcoin and eventually they said you know what we're not gonna pay them. We have the backed up data but they did have this moment of thinking in the scheme of our business. It's not that much money like. Are we talking about people who are shooting for big amounts or you know are they targeting twenty five different places for relatively gettable sums across the security community. It's broadly understood that ransom demands are basically going up. The trend line is pointing upward. But it can vary between in the thousands of dollars like as as a case with with your husband. But if you're getting to a larger corporation you have some people who specialized in this area saying that ransom demands could be ten million twenty million dollars. Well so i mean. Obviously attackers are smart enough to know they're not going to go with to attend with a ten million dollar demand to a school district. That certainly can't pay that in. That would make it an easy decision for them. They're they're trying to find like the right price point as well where they can have some sort of a six rate. Do school districts do hospitals. Do these places tend to pay. It really varies. It depends on what type of data has been encrypted. It depends whether those school districts have backed up their data beforehand which would make sort of rebooting the system much easier but what is almost always true. Is that school very cagey about saying whether they paid. No one wants to say that. They paid off a hacker that they gave someone from a country in the side of the other side of the world. A million bucks get their systems online. It's a very difficult. Pr situation for any organization or school to tiptoe around because it says what your system is rable and that you're willing to pay or that you just were bad cybersecurity. I mean all of the above. And i think one of the sort of broader questions that the entire cyber community is really wrestling with is. Should you pay broadly speaking. Are we incentivizing hackers to keep taking advantage of schools or keep taking advantage of businesses if they keep on paying and i understand that argument completely. It's it's very straightforward point of view on the other hand. If your business is offline for two weeks or a month or if your schools taken off line paying off might be the better option to you if it means basically losing all of your customers or you know having kids go out of school for a month or so. Dave says it's a bit of a vicious cycle vulnerable systems plus a willingness to pay tends to lead to more attacks but the victims are only half of the equation. The other half the perpetrators behind that screen demanding. Bitcoin are part of a criminal industry. That is surprisingly organized. One of the interesting things that cyber security researchers really say is these groups oftentimes act almost as corporate entities. They're very professional. They have partnerships between groups at times they subcontract to specialists within the hacking profession. If they have you know someone who's particularly adept at getting into a system. They'll go to that person to try to launch their attack. So you'd really do have this sort of our in de element almost a within the hacking community when it when it comes to them trying to hone their craft and zero win an exactly the right targets when people are negotiating or even having a conversation with. The attackers are to be trusted. Like you know are. Are you gonna trustees folks if they say like okay. Pay us are fifteen hundred bucks in bitcoin. And actually you're going to get your data back or is that a terrible idea. You would think that criminals are not to be trusted in. Obviously they're they're not But at the end of the day these groups are also playing a long game when it comes to their business and they have as i said a reporter with some of these negotiators that work with businesses and schools. If they don't pay if they don't decryption data after you pay them money. Those negotiators will know for their subsequent clients and they will know to not advise clients in the future to pay. So you had this weird dynamic that develops were. The groups are actually like worried about their sort of like brand in some respects. That's completely fascinating. Yeah it's totally wild thing and one lawyer who works in a lot of these investigations like re recently told me we don't wanna get to the level buber comparing it to customer service. But they're like definitely getting to a point where once you pay up in some cases they're trying to be helpful so that in the future they're known as sort of an honest broker while attacks may be more. Frequent ransomware isn't new like with so many other things cove it just accelerated existing trent so we have just seen a growth in the amount of ransomware with some of these criminal groups that have been long established in countries around the world just gravitating toward an effective tool that they're using so when you talk to cybersecurity researchers who follow this closely attribution is very difficult but they tend to say that the countries in which these types of groups operate our might might be the ones that you tend to think of korea iran china countries in the soviet bloc or central asia countries that may tend to look away when cyber criminal groups within their own borders launch an attack on a us business and do foreign governments step in or they unhelpful. I think it's safe to say that the the reason why a lot of this activity oftentimes stems from those countries is because the government's take a more lax approach some of this hacking particularly if it's sort of geared at the united states the. Us government recently has tried to warn businesses against paying somewhere demands. They basically have looked at those states. In particular places like north korea and iran and they've issued warnings to companies saying. Hey if you're targeted by ransomware think twice about paying anyone who is affiliated with someone who sanctioned from those countries. You could violate sanction rules by actually paying up this ransomware. I was really struck by that. Yeah the treasury department was basically sort of saying. Gee even if you're a victim you might be maybe committing a crime here if you pay up. What was their reasoning. Their i mean. I think goes to that discussion that i was mentioning earlier about how we're creating a market for ransomware essentially and i think it's it makes sense to the. Us government's official policy as we shouldn't pay people on our sanction lists and create this market. That said if a company that employs ten thousand or twenty thousand americans has to choose between paying one of these things or laying people off. I mean that's a much different conversation. Be curious to see whether people in law enforcement federal regulators etcetera might take sort of a case by case approach to actually enforcing that sort of thing. I'm trying to figure out where all of this goes. As we maybe move to a post pandemic world Obviously people are gonna still do lots of stuff online. And that's not something. That's going away. But i wonder if you think we are going to keep seeing this increase in ransomware attacks or if this is maybe a bit of a bubble wrought by the pandemic. I think it's probably safe to assume that it will continue increasing. You will still have these criminal groups that make tens of millions of dollars per year doing this stuff who will continue to innovate continue to look for new ways to go after businesses. Continue to do that. Research and development that we mentioned earlier so. I think it's safe to say that. None of that's going to stop

Buying Property To Rent And Dealing With Rent During Covid

"Assuming with your background that you after something that needed a little bit of work like was this a fixer. Upper was that a bird was at a turnkey like tells about the property so our goal is buying hold so we're looking for properties but we're not looking for something that it's it's in really really bad condition. Just because the properties are an hour and forty minutes away from where we live in where we operate our construction business so we are buying properties. That do need some work. but we're focusing on properties. The rents are much lower than fair. Market is so our first property the the the rents for the three bedrooms. Twelve hundred dollars each and twelve hundred dollars. We saw an opportunity that that market was able to get a three bedroom. Fifteen hundred dollars and it needed some very minor repairs. So we are focusing on buying properties not really concerned on the purchase price but more on what the value is in the increase in the rents the three properties we have after he fixed the properties. After we get some new tenants in there we can raise the rents to fair market which is thirty percent plus they for this first property you did. What were the rents when he purchased it and then what are the rents now. So they're twelve hundred dollars a piece and we purchase this in in january. Obviously kovin happen so we didn't want him removed the tenants. Because we're all human. I'm not looking to to put someone out of the house right away during covid so we twelve hundred dollars we can increase these after we fix them up to fifteen hundred dollars each so. That's huge because our numbers are just a she around sixteen percent return on our investment for this property and along with all three of our portfolio pieces by you purchase senior ready to raise the rents and i know cove it kinda through this for you but what process do take to do that because a lot of people are you know. They don't wanna raise the rent especially by that much to these people. Do give them the option of moving out or raising the rent. Do send them a letter. You talk to them in person. How do you go about approaching that we try and take it on a human level like we we understand that covert going on. We understand that we're not looking to pull people out on the street. We tell them that we are. We bought this property looking to to raise the rents we give them the required thirty day sixty as ninety days notice like hey you can stay but you have to pay the increased rants and we're not going to do without fixing your apartment because obviously when we're trying to bring it up. The fair market value in terms of the rentals are also bringing up the conditions of the space to be a fair market value. And just so. Everyone knows in new york state when he mentioned the thirty sixty or ninety days. He's not saying that did that. It depends on the tenant you if he's gonna give them thirty sixty or ninety. It actually depends on how long they've lived in the property. How much notice you have to give them so the longer they've lived there you might have to give them ninety days notice on the rent increase

Elon Musk Shares New Details on Tesla’s Battery Costs

"Moving onto the european battery conference interview with elon. Musk then that's was overnight about two. Am pacific time about a twenty minute interview and you did share quite a few things one of the things that caught the most attention at least on twitter today was elon. Musk's comments on long-term battery cost goals for tesla. So of course we heard at battery day. They aim to reduce those costs by about fifty six percent per kilowatt hour. So you on here. Finally gave us a dollar target. We had not heard that before he says quote the long term goal would be to try to get to a cost per kilowatt hour of perhaps around fifty cents or fifty five cents at the cell level for a long range battery and quote so you may have noticed the reason part of the reason this got so much attention today on twitter was because he on said fifty cents or fifty five cents per kilowatt hour at the sea level considering most estimates today put tesla above one hundred dollars per kilowatt hour down fifty cents per kilowatt hour obviously would be pretty insane so he llanos pretty clearly misspeaking there. Just run through a little bit of math year in case anyone has just a wild theory that maybe someday that would be possible. Nealon stock really long term. No that's not the case so to demonstrate that we can look nickel content in the battery pack for the model three that contains around thirty kilograms of nickel a kilogram nickel. Today costs about fifty dollars per kilogram. A little bit more. But let's just round down the scale discounts. You know whatever the case may be so. That's four hundred and fifty dollars of nickel in a battery. Pack for the model three assuming that seventy five kilowatt hours that works out to six dollars per kilowatt hour just for the nickel content in tesla battery so yeah that's just raw materials. There's no way they're ever getting down to fifty cents or fifty five cents per kilowatt hour. He also says at the cell level so even if you misinterpreted that and said that's a purse l. price of fifty cents or fifty five cents. Which will never make sense to quantify it that way. But let's say the new forty six eighties. There's going to be you know. Eight hundred nine hundred of those per mile three pack if each cell were fifty cents. You're then looking at a total battery cost of four hundred and fifty dollars but again just the nickel content alone costs around that much so pretty clearly ilan just misspeaking here any means fifty dollars or fifty five dollars per kilowatt hour so that shouldn't be too surprising with the math that we had worked through from battery day that fifty six percent cost reduction most estimates today. Put tesla at the pack level. You know somewhere around one hundred and five to one hundred and fifteen dollars per kilowatt hour so we can use these long-term targets and combine those with the battery percent reductions that we heard on battery day to get a gauge for those current cost estimates. But it's important to remember. That on here is talking about the cell cost and during battery day that fifty six percent per kilowatt hour reduction seven percent of that was actually four. Sell to vehicle integration. So i don't think we should be. Applying that percentage on this base cost here. So let's say than just at the cell cost level. They're targeting a forty nine percent reduction there if that's an accurate assumption that means yawns numbers here would imply that. Today's prices are somewhere between ninety eight dollars and one hundred and eight dollars per kilowatt hour at the cell level. So i don't know how much the additional cost to go from. Cell to pack would be per kilowatt hour but these do seem to line up pretty well with what estimates have been and can give us a lot more confidence in where tesla is currently and then of course. We're they intend to get to longer term with you on confirming that in this interview. So that means longer term you could be looking at a seventy five kilowatt hour. Pack costing just three thousand seven hundred fifty dollars versus today may be somewhere around seven thousand seven hundred so that's obviously very exciting for them locations for the car but one thing that i do also think is really interesting. Is the marginal impact of that as you. Add battery capacity because at that price. It just doesn't cost that much to add additional range adding twenty five kilowatt hours. There would only cost additional roughly twelve hundred dollars so in the case of a model three for example you could add an additional say hundred miles of range for only a final cost to the customer if you apply twenty percent margin on that of about fifteen hundred dollars. Obviously the batteries have to fit in the car. So there's going to be a limit. But i think as better costs come down. That limit is going to be more physical constraint versus pricing constraint.

How I Built This

Interview With Robin McBride and Andra McBride John

"Okay so I warned you last time this story is epic right and I am assuming you're here because you've already heard part one of this two part story how two half sisters who didn't know the other existed until both were grown up went onto launch one of the biggest black owned wine companies in the world. But if you haven't heard part one, please stop listening right now and go back one episode and your podcast queue to hear it. As for the rest of you, you've now had a few days to dry your eyes and recover from the first half of the story. Which means we are at the business building part of what would eventually become the McBride Sisters Collection. Now, the thing about Andrea and Robin mcbryde is that despite both growing up in winemaking regions Robin in Monterey California, Andrea in new. Zealand neither sister had any real connection to the industry and neither had any real money to put towards a business. They were also young women of color trying to break into an industry that's often been dominated by older mainly white men. But now this matter they didn't care. They knew that they both shared a love of wine and that they both had a deep and powerful desire to work together. and. There was one other thing. They were motivated by mission they wanted to build a company that would make wine more accessible to disrupt and demystify the sometimes intimidating parts of wine culture. Grape varietals had a tasted regional nuances. Ratings even had a read labels. And when they I dreamed up the idea of starting wine company Robin, the older sister had been working at a corporate job and was married with three children and Andrea, was a college student at USC. I mean. Neither of you had a whole lot of start up cash if any did you Robyn did you I mean you had been working but you also family did you have any savings I mean not match you know it was kind of a nearly paycheck to paycheck. Already got married. We had recently purchased a home, but you know we have brand new twin babies and an older girl. So there wasn't a whole lot of cash available and under assuming given that you're on scholarship at USC in a college student, you probably were broke right I. Mean I got my scholarship checks in on. Where you could get a job and make money you know that was that was what I did. So the the the original idea was it sounds like what you guys settled on was let's just import wine and and Kinda put a label on it was that the initial idea. So we had this grand vision we felt like what was really critically important was that. Incredibly passionate about wine yes. Students of wine but we need to learn the business of wine and you know we could get this license in California, a federal import license that was like fifteen hundred dollars. It was like our total life savings and we could import other people's winds and we started by reaching out to two families in New Zealand, and then we could we could learn the business and we went to them and basically said, you know don't put all your eggs and basket. We think California could be a great market to grow your brands and your winds and we negotiated really long payment term so he could bring in the wine. Sell it. Click the cash, pay the light bill and then pay them back and then. As a part of the process was every harvest. We come back and you guys teach us how to make wine. And you Andrea ahead of some connections in new. Zealand 'cause you're from there and your family, your family farmers. Yeah. So when you first approach these wineries in New Zealand and they agreed to send you wine. How did that work like how many? How many bottles of wine did you initially by and then where did you go to sell them? So yeah so it was crazy. It was at the time at felt like it was an insanely huge amount of wine. In it was a palette which is. Fifty Four I. Like the the minimum of what you can put on a boat. But for us, that was just an insane an internet case of wine. There's twelve bottles. So right it just felt like a huge defeat to be able to get these licenses because you know the the sale of alcohol states is highly regulated. And it's very strict and so just the process of obtaining a license to import seemed and felt like such a huge rigorous process and then and then to convince people. You know to entrust in US and give US product and then to get on a boat and then and then bring it into the port of Long Beach at the time, and then put it into a federally bonded warehouse because you can't just like bring that to your house has to go into

Staying Confident In The Airplane

"And what I want to address this podcast and I'm hearing a lot of things like Jason I, got my private a year ago I flew pretty regularly for a few months but you know life. And just not flying as much as I wanted to, and I'm starting to lose that confidence I. Don't feel like I wanNA, take my kids up or my wife because I don't feel confident if something happens up there that I can deal with it or at least deal with it is sharply as I did the day after my check reading. So I've gotten a few versions of that story and I WANNA talk to you about how you can do this how you can stay proficient and you can stay confident and you don't have to spend a fortune to do it and I think there are three main points that I wanna make in small tweaks you might have to make to your flying. But the first one is in, you know how close this is to my how hard the standardization the idea that you can ritualized you're flying. And then remember like rehearse remember and perform the ritual of flying and so all you really have to remember is that ritual and what the ritual is designed to do is to weed out the possibility of thousands of other smaller mistakes from happening I'm great example there is the final walk around on a preflight, right. If you just remember to do the final walk around on a preflight, you might catch tomorrow on the nose wheel cinderblocks blocks on the tail Pito Tube cover. Fuel caps left off seatbelts hanging out of the door baggage compartment opened I mean I, you go on and on and on with the things that you might catch. Simply. By remembering to walk around the airplane after the preflight. Okay and that goes deep. If you want a very detailed version of all of the soap's the standard operating procedures that I teach, those are all in my book setting the standard. But that is one concept that will add huge beer flying. This is an I didn't make this operate. This is the way the professional pilots do it because they've got money in the game they've got a business, they have to take care of one of their pilots crashes. It can't be game over right not only that as you've heard me say the company's survived the accident typically. So the company has a chance to evolve develop a procedure that will prevent the. Pie The from any other pilots for making the same mistakes and they can force compliance with that procedure. That's huge. That's the whole process, and if you can get yourself to do that, you are miles ahead of the game. All right. That's one thing we'd like to ritualized the flying, and the second thing is getting rid of this idea that you go back every two years for what they used to call a biennial flight review or a flight review that is not. Enough that is not regularly. You're not going to regularly enough if you're going back every two years and the pros know this to right how often do the pros go back? I heard you say it every six months, right. So if you're a professional pilot, every six months, you go back with your instructor. Back to the training environment and you go through the ringer right you practice all of the emergency procedures, all of those things that you might need if someday. You're you're in a situation where you have an incident? You've got your family on board right and all of this training inspires confidence. So this is the feeling of confidence in the airplane comes from doing it regularly and feeling confident that you can handle the edge cases if they come up. I'm so what most people do just to kind of get US summarized here three point two when most people do is they get their pilot certificate they here. Okay. I have to get a flare view maybe they go get a new club checkout and then that's it right and then they're out flying with their friends and their kids and their wife and two years ago by nothing boy I better go get a flight review that is not a way to inspire confidence. That is not a way to feel good about what you're doing. In the pros know that. and. So the last thing I'd like to say is this is the part where we get into. This is the third point where we get into the budget. Is that there's been a lot of evidence to suggest that if you just keep your head in the game right back in the day they see if you read flying magazine or you re Flight Training magazine those are still great ideas by the way. But in today's world you've got youtube and you've got APPS late ground school and you've got you know ah so many different ways to stay engaged with aviation. And I always tell students when they come in to train. The typical question is how much is this gonNa cost me I don't. Generally answer that question as a complete daughter a mount I won't say, well, this certificate certificate is GonNa cost you fifteen thousand dollars or twenty thousand dollars. If you really pin me down on it, I will say it will cost you anywhere from fifteen to twenty five, thousand dollars. There's a ten thousand dollar. Window there depending on how prepared you are when you show up for lessons how regularly fly how busy you are all that sort of stuff. But that's not even the important part. The important part is that you really think about flying more like a monthly expense more like a habit. So when a student comes in and says or perspective, Stephen Comes in and says, I'm thinking about flying how much is this gonNa cost me I will usually say how much can you afford each month? Right? Is this something you can. Afford. To put fifteen hundred dollars a month into or is it something you can only afford to five hundred dollars a month into is something you can put an unlimited amount of money anti right I mean I just have no idea where you're coming from but the important part is you're starting to think about it like a habit that you're taking on and you're never gonNA stop. So you have this monthly expense for flying. Now, let's take A. Relatively for flying a relatively modest budget. Let's see we have seven hundred dollars or eight hundred dollars a month that we feel as though we can spend on flying right it doesn't sound like a lot when you consider your CFI's probably one hundred dollars an hour on the airplane while it's running. Over one hundred dollars an hour. So you're out there spending on, let's say, let's just pick numbers. Let's say the airplanes one hundred and fifty dollars an hour and you go out for one point five keep it keep it. You know easy math that's two hundred, twenty, five dollars right? One, fifty plus seventy, five, two, hundred, and twenty, five dollars plus your CFI you're together with your. Maybe. Instead of one point five year together for two hours it's another two hundred dollars. So we're looking at four hundred and seventy five dollars we're looking at. If you do one lesson a month after your certificate, you're spending four hundred and seventy-five bucks. You've left yourself with a budget of about three hundred, fifty dollars maybe a short two hour flight somewhere with your family. But you've flown twice in the month right and that's the way you need to think about the finance part of it think about it as as a monthly expense and try to allocate how much you're spending each month a little bit toward training and

Absolute statements under fifteen hundred dollars a month. I have to pay fifteen hundred dollars a month. You just don't understand. That's what it costs to live here. There's no rental properties under fifteen hundred dollars a month. Say when you make a statement like that you're not making an accurate statement about your area. You're making a statement about your view of your area. And somehow you're wanting to get a pass on math. And you're saying, well, I'm stuck. And so I'm just gonna go ahead and be stupid people. Like me can't get ahead and you're doing glass, half half empty kind of thing. You're being a pessimist instead of an optimist and in philosophical terms, you've become a fatalist. Well, like, you just need order stand. The only way I'm gonna be you maybe homeless it's either homeless or fifteen hundred dollars, and that's a fatalistic viewpoint. It's also wrong. The stupid.

So when you make a fatalistic absolute dog Mattis statement like that it what it really means. Is your spirit is reaching hopelessness? You're feeling stuck. It doesn't mean. There aren't any rental properties that you can get find you move a little bit further out of town. You can leave in a different area than you wanna live in maybe in that town, but you can always find something to rent different than that, you always do different.

"Core core, I five cuss fifteen hundred dollars. So if you're confused you're listening, so there's absolutely no way. I can explain this that it will make sense to you. But they've added this version, I don't quite know why I think what it's going to do eventually replace what used to be the base model, which is basically the same configuration. Just seven gen verses eighth gen that previous model is on sale right now. I think for twelve fifty. So if if the core thing doesn't bug you integrated graphics is not a problem. You can save two hundred fifty bucks to get the old one. I think when that sells out it's going to go away. Why did they do this? I have no idea. Why did they do this? Now. I have no idea. What does this mean for surface book three? It is unlikely we will see a surface book three before the end of this year. And so this will be a market for at least six months possibly longer who knows? Surface book three before the end of the no, no, I didn't mean to suggest that. But I mean, it's interesting that they're like, adding a model at this point. It's very strange unusual. I feel like they did that before though, no with other variants they have. But usually like I said like the past year typically what they've been doing is adding a new base model. So the previous surface book based model came with two hundred fifty six gigs of storage. So they released version that had one hundred twenty eight and I might begin the exact price wrong. But like I said, I believe he can get it right now for seven hundred and fifty dollars. So that's the new starting price. So the big difference just looking at surface book to by itself between today and eighteen months ago is that the base price to get into this product is eleven fifty versus fifteen hundred that's a significant reduction. It's not the same computer. But it's not a Corum or whatever. So that's kind of interesting surface book to replace surface book one sorry surface laptop to replace surface laptop one. But in the surface laptop time frame, they introduced a new base model that version is available again in surface laptop to. Surface. Pro same thing going from five to six they've they've lowered the entry level price in each case. And of course, last year, they also introduced surface go, which is a relatively inexpensive product mega especially compared to the other surface devices. So you know, they had a one point eight six million or billion dollar quarter over the Christmas holiday because all of a sudden if you look at their ESPN, what is exactly, but it probably went from fifteen hundred dollars down to as low as a thousand or something. I mean, they they significantly lowered the average selling price of service devices over the past year. By introducing these new models. So interesting confusing for sure. I feel like it's a good move though. Because I feel like one of the criticisms of surface devices is the price especially because you have to add the keyboard the pen, right? And if they're targeting education with some of these they need lower end entry level models. Yeah. And like, I said, I think the big thing is you can see the impact the in this math here that I can't do. But you know, you in apple does it with their iphone prices too as well. When you think about it? It's okay. We're going to we're going to adjust the price in some direction. How's that going to impact unit sales, and where's the sweet spot for revenues? Right. And so Microsoft had been sitting at about a billion in revenues plush minus some small amount for several quarters before that quarter. And then it suddenly jumped up to like one point. I think it was one point eight six if I get that big jump, you know, and I think it was directly attributable to entry level models across the product lines. And then service go. It's all because of their AI, Paul. They now have even more AAFI. Yeah. Like airline seats when they know exactly. When to stop selling the cheap seats, and when they can. Hey cortana. What's the best you level price for service book to eleven hundred fifty dollars?.

And I always tell clients that pet insurance mostly helped you in an emergent situation or a situation later in life. When your pet is really ill, and you need to get that specialty service. I think that's where pet insurance is really worth. It's weight and gold and a friend. Just en- Garrick told me that a lot of times when he's in the exam room. And he's preparing an estimate for client about the the much needed care that this bird situation needs that what is brings us a sigh of relief from everybody involved is that there is pet insurance out there. And I think that pet insurance is something that if you don't have for your pet. I would definitely look into getting it every veterinarian has a different take on which one their favorite pet insurance is. But I think it's valuable in situations like this, and I really think it pays for itself in situations. Like, this you bring up a great point. So when it comes to pet insurance, do you mind just giving some of our pet owners out there a little bit of information like how much does it typically cost a year? Should you get it as a puppy, or when they're older, what should owners be prepared for is it a third party? Do parents have to pay the initial upfront fees and get reimbursed later, how does it work? Great question. So the best time to get pet insurance is when you have a young healthy, puppy or kitten because you want to. Event the situation where you have pre existing conditions. And so the best time to get is the talk your back near at your puppy kitten..

"I owe the fifteen hundred dollars hello frederick hello yes so bill elderly friend of mine rented a room in his bedroom he owns his home he rented furnished bedroom in his house at the beginning of last month the young man who rented the room without his permission moved out the furniture in the room and then moved in several pieces of his own new furniture my friend gets home they get into an argument about it because of the move furniture the guy leaves that had rented the room eighty only lifter few weeks he said i'll be back at the end of the month to get my things meaning to three pieces of furniture he moved in he never came back at the end of the month he's never contact how long has it been how long has it been since he left it's bit how many how many months he lived there about two or three weeks and how many months since he left and said i'll be back in three weeks about three weeks he's only been gone three weeks since he said i'll be back in three weeks all right so what's your question if he doesn't ever he can't he doesn't know where the guy is and he's not returning his call he's wondering you know how long does he i don't know i don't know i don't know i don't know the answer it's a it's a statutory period you can look that up or it is a reasonable period and that you sort of have to guess what that is and i would think it'd be a matter of months but i think there's a statutory answer to that which means you simply look up a state law or even county or local law and asked that question how long does it take or how long can you keep on furniture or how long before you can get rid of the furniture and once you're allowed to do that the furniture can be sold and then that amount of money as is placed against the rent and that's for starters and then assuming you get money and you're looking for this guy and he never shows up then there's another statutory issue as to how long is it that he cannot collect eighty money and that's another bit of research you get to do so did i just say i don't know to both those questions that my answer pretty much i like those that's what makes me such a successful attorney it's i don't know no i don't know that one either don't you ask me one more no no don't know that either how about another i don't know no that's enough bill i get it you don't know hey butch i'm sorry not supposed to say that it's alright i am co founder and chief operating officer i sit on the board of directors on a five one c three and my question is i also have a personally i have a company that that is a profit for profit company and i modify and make changes to vehicles for returning veterans that have specific needs to blam dt's so my question is hiring might company and sitting on the board is that a conflict of interest well it certainly appears to be a conflict of interest and it smells like a conflict now that doesn't necessarily mean that you cannot do both i mean the cleanest way of doing it and you simply don't vote on it you accuse yourself you're out the door and you're not in the vote that helps a lot and the other argument is going to be i simply provide the best service at the best price and while there is the potential for a conflict there isn't one in this case and the problem becomes you've got the other board members who could turn around or any point and theoretically foul lawsuit against you but if the board votes in favour and you in fact recuse yourself from.
