How Do I Niche Down a Business I Bought?
"When niching down you need to make sure there is a need in the market just like our hotel owner who saw in tripadvisor. There's so many complaints about. I would love a place with no kids. There's so much noise tart again. The arrest. I gotta get up early. Because i want to get to the slopes early. If you see pain points that you can solve with your pivot with your knee shing that means you have an audience. You have a target market that is willing to pay for what you got but you also gotta deal with your current customers so there were a lot of customers in hotel that were repeat customers every season that would come back with their families and they were disappointed when they learned. Hey they can't bring their kids because this is a children free hotel now now what you need to understand what this hotel owner understood is that i'm going to lose customers. This is going to happen. I'm going to say no to people but this means i'm gonna be able to say yes to so many more i'm going to say yes to enough customers to keep me happy to keep my business running and in this hotel skits threat full capacity so they can't ask for much more so by saying no in life in general it allows you to say yes to something else if somebody says to me. Hey do you wanna go bowling on thursday night. And i say no will that evening now is free and i can say yes something else. This is what's called opportunity costs right so it's not that just saying no your customers. It's the end all beal. You have the opportunity to say yes now. That you've niche down so make sure you have that market now. It's okay for you to communicate this to your customers and say hey we now cater specifically to these types of people with this type of needs. We appreciate you. You're a loyal customer. If you fit in that kind of description you're gonna love us. If you're not would love reader i somebody to us or you can even get a discount if they want to try so even in this hotels case they could've done the strategy and they could have maybe had the kids grandparents look after the kids so they enjoy their new experience at this hotel so putting them down gently. These current customer of yours is important and also doing it in just a friendly way. You're not gonna please everybody. Something will be like. Hey this new ownership stinks.

Past Insurrectionists Were Not Punished Compared to January 6th Protestors
"There are other people who We're very violent attack the capital building and And they got pardons. And we've been through that before. No such thing happened at the Capitol building this time. There was no explosion. The only shooting was the killing of the protester by Capitol police officer People have not been charged with Weapons violations in the building. Have a group in 1954, Puerto Rican separatists got into the house floor and opened fire with handguns. Five members of the house were wounded in the attack. Wow. And so I thought I'd point all this out. It must be a diversion. It's called history. It's called context. Nobody excuses people who broke into the Capitol building. The problem we have is the lack of equal justice. May I call it equity? So we actually have people who assaulted Police officers burned buildings. Attacked federal law enforcement and a federal courthouse for three months in a row. For which there were almost no consequences. That's the biggest problem. Don't know how many of them were put in solitary confinement for months. Do you? I don't know how many of them were charged with trespassing. Do you?
New Hampshire Legislator Calls to Rally Others to Run for Office
"And one of the things I did is Had enormous number of books as you can tell, and I went through them, and I tried to pick what I considered the most, uh Iconic and most powerful for them. On the left. And then, uh, take the sections that I thought were most important and then sort of narrow those down and then explain them. And then in the end of each chapter tied together, And then, of course, the end of the book say We got a rally Now. Do you see things changing at all? You know you're a state rep in New Hampshire. I don't think people are very happy with what's going on in this country. Do you? No, they're not. I see that people are absolutely rallying, usually after an election things quiet down, but we've had people getting involved staying involved going to town Council meetings. School board meetings. We had the Wyndham audits for those ballots that had been miscounted because of those folds and we see people that are involved every day here and we have some more opportunities for people to get involved. We actually have two special. We've already had two special elections where 400 person health. We have two more special elections scheduled and we might have another four. So there's opportunities for people to run and get involved and be involved both at the state level as well as next spring for their town cities or school board, So it's a really exciting time because there's so much momentum carrying over So many people that are still so involved, and I'm hoping that we can really keep moving this forward. Uh,
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Says It's an Individual Right to Vaccinate or Not
"Of Joe Biden's effort to convince people to take the vaccine to get the way he calls them? They're not so smart if they don't that do bullet belittling people. Turning them into second class citizens. Talking to them this way as President, United States is that effective? Is that a way to persuade people to do what you you claim you want them to do, Governor? No, not only that, though. If you look there now saying where Mass. So they say, you have to get vaccinated. Otherwise you're stupid, but those who are vaccinated. You need to be wearing masks because they're basically saying the vaccines don't work, So they have terrible messaging on all this. And you know my view on this from the very beginning. Was when it when it first hit Florida. I said, We're going to give it to elderly first, and there was a huge demand for elderly. We go to nursing homes. We go to senior communities we put in our retail pharmacies. We did a whole bunch of good stuff. But we said it's going to be available for all but mandated for none, and we're going to give you the information and let you make a decision about what you want to do so and the seniors in Florida we have over 85% that have done it. But you know, I was at nursing homes where we brought vaccine. Some of the residents decided not to and that was their choice. We didn't make value judgments on that. We tried to provide information, free of mandates free of any type of coercion. Um, and I think what Biden is doing is basically sending the message that you know you're you're somehow less of an American. You know, if you make choices that are different than what they want, and there's mark. There's some people who have medical conditions where they where they can't do some of these. Some of these vaccines. There's millions of Americans who have recovered from covid and have immunity and it is good, durable immunity. You have all these different factors and they really don't show any recognition of that. But I think the more they get on their high horse. The more they try to browbeat people. Eyes think that that they lose even more people, and I think anyone that's on the fence about it. Um, you know well, many of them will decide not to get it at that point.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Illegal Ailens Speading COVID-19
"Got a kid in kindergarten, they just said today they want the kid muzzled with a mask. Even though covid's not any risk to the kid. If you have a loved one overseas, they may not let them come and fly. Just normal travel because of covid. They'll claim, But yet if you want to just come straight across that border and have thousands of people pouring in They don't give a damn about covid. At that point, they're letting them right in, and I can tell you I've sent people there to help Governor Abbott because the federal government has dropped the ball. So we have Florida another state stepping up to help. Texas actually took a trip out there about two weeks ago, and, uh, it is unbelievable What's going on out there and it's you know, you have the drugs, which is important. Criminal aliens, which are going to cause huge problems throughout our country. But the sheer number of people coming through there and all they do is they just give them a citation. They say. Hey, call this number and set up a date for your own deportation hearing. Well, no one's coming for that. These guys are gone. They're going and they're out into our country. And so this goes on for the next 3 3.5 years. You're going to have millions and millions of people, and it's not people just from Mexico or even primarily, it's from over 100 different countries. Yeah, When I was there, we saw people from the Middle East. You saw Asians You saw Haitians. Really from anywhere. People know if you just get to that Southern border That's your ticket into the United States illegally. And the bite administrations just going to let you right in. So how could you possibly have restrictions on U. S citizens because of covid, but yet have people pouring across and not just people pouring across. They're coming from every Part of the globe coming across the Who knows what the hell kind of pathogens they're bringing in. In addition to Covid, and yet the CDC does not care at all about that. And I think the reason is ideology.

"Ready for the first call. Good jump over to Jim and Hartford. Good morning, Jim. What's your question for the guys? Hey, yeah. I've got a roof line that has some wood on there, and it looks like the woods running away and I could see some of the, uh, the flashing behind it. And this winter, we had some ice. That showed up on the roof for the ceiling of the overhang on our front porch, and I was wondering if that's something I could possibly do on their own or fight, you know, should get a professional in to do it. Well, I guess it would depend on how handy you are. Um, it sounds like you get a sighting issue, and I did see some pictures that Dayton, uh, showed me the monitor. Yeah, and you have a flashing issue there. So what you conducive is or what we do is we take a fine tool and we cut that siding up about 4.5 inches, and that allows us to put new flashing in at that point, and it allows us to put ice and water shield in at that point. And then what we do is we shop fabricate a piece of ze flashing that would tuck up underneath the siding. And come down and we take a piece of LP Smart side. Five quarter by four. Leave it off the roof line about an inch and and tie that into the flash. And we just put on so that battle get rid of your rotted. Would it allow you to put a new flashing ice and water shield and you can tie that right into your existing siding with a Z flashing Gotcha. And then maybe getting rid of that or cutting back. That vertical piece of would've always so that we're not causing damning right there. Yeah. You want to keep things off the roof line, You know, so you don't have the right. That was probably part of your problem. But you know, when, when that was first put on. It was probably put on with one roof. Then they put another refined and possibly a third rough. If it's older home, it goes through the generations of being piled on and then they might have clocked to that sighting at one point in time, So who knows what happens with the history of what's going on here? But That's what you have right now. So it's of completely reciting. You could just clean up those bad images. We do that a lot when we change from cedar roofs, too, Asshole rose because we have to change the flashing detail. And then along the way, too, there's usually some deterioration with the existing siding that meets up against there. And so it's a win when you get everything cleaned up in watertight. Gotcha. Gotcha. Okay, Cool. Yeah. I mean, it's 100 year old home, So there's been many things done to me. Oh, all right. Well, thank you so much for your call. All right. Appreciate it, man. Thanks, Scott.

NBA Finals crank up on a Wednesday night at the Miami Heat, taking on the Lakers all sorts of story lines in this one, Eric, I think locally, the great storyline is with regard to the heat. You've got a pair of former Marquette standouts and Jae Crowder and Jimmy Butler, who are playing outstanding. And it's pretty amazing that two years ago, Tyler hero was putting down buckets for witness that was going to be on the same floor as LeBron in the N B a Finals. That's great man, an incredible It is. And then, of course, it's on the national scene. Remember, people thought my LeBron was goingto get to stay in Miami, right? Maybe be a member of the heat for life, and then he goes back to Cleveland goes to L. A. And Miami wasn't the discussion then, too. So there's a lot of back and forth and I'm sure in interesting sort of dynamic between heat fans and LeBron he brought champion fits to Miami, and now he could be playing for a team Lookinto prevent the heat training one.

"I like to say that i grew up on the streets and for me i did and so those people that had to have that feeling of survive and that their survival was much more kind of up to them. I think are just kind of innately better at picking people yeah yeah absolutely man. I'd love to get into the philanthropic side. Well let me just invite any. I have to talk about it because it's the most important thing of my shoulder but i work in one of the most violent prisons in america and i had the opportunity completely random. I don't go to conferences. I i was invited to a conference. I didn't feel like i was it was not the right tom. Tom williams. I got the wrong. Invitation met this woman she brought me to this prison and i met two men there. The first day that i was like these guys are special that same picking people and i've supported them and my wife and i are now. Our whole family have watched these men evolve at such incredible rate and it's plain to see for everybody that any listener that wants to have the most just incredible life-changing truly weekend of their lives. If they're a good human i would invite them to come to jail with me. We do this exercise exercise called step to the line and it's organized originally by bernie brown organizing principle by her and idea being that you're on one side. All of us has volunteers. There's on one side and all of the folks who are incarcerated on the other side and because they're all gang members you can't survive in jail without being affiliated or controlled by one one of these five gangs you standing across that has you know f._u. Tattooed on his face and you're going through this exercise and it originally is designed to keep you in your biopsies. She's there were more than fifty bucks growing up so books in your home when you grew up and so on and so on and but then it gets progressively more intense and when you realize realize it we all have painted chain. The human condition is painted chain and it's our greatest limiter that pain and shame and and so this exercise asks you to excise all of it and what you find. Is that the stuff that you thought made you unlovable the stuff that you. I thought nobody would ever look at you the same way if they knew you find that the person who gives you that acceptance is the guy with f._u. Tattooed on his face yes and that you feel like you are in that moment more bonded together then bring a lot of my founders to this and my most special people i bring and utah ah one of my founders i just shared more with guys in prison that i have with my girlfriend of two years you know but it's through that work that i've also become deeply deeply deeply deeply aware of the existence of people that we deliberately would avoid it and in america not just the formerly incarcerated but also to people that are poor people bowl that don't talk normal or the right way. There's more of these people in the world than any than any other population because because of our biases we've been taught this otherness and we've been taught that we are better and they are worse. I think what's going to happen in our lifetime. I'm incredibly optimistic about humanity. I really do believe that each generation. We are better than i think. Humans basically just want to be less less worse than our parents worst parts and better than our best parts. I think that's humanity..

So i'll introduce myself saying hey. I'm keeping him accountable or her accountable so they're not living my brand. You let me know and then then what i'm doing is then saying i'm coaching them through how they think about the opportunity and they support that entrepreneur to and so on but i'm getting all this information asymmetry and that allows me then to go on and take the series see your series d financing there will come a point where i'll be able to maybe click a button and deploy twenty million nine dollars into a single deal when that comes then like lookout and so therefore what all want to do is be doing what your classic older grayer v._c. is doing which is the hard board were and deploying serious capital on the steward and then i get to do this baton on the other part of it is every angel has upper bound and so if you're like me which is building lifelong relationships investing across every round of your best companies you need baton process and so for me when i'm by the time that an angel goes from seed to series see and i take over at the c. i. Give that person bandwidth to be able to support another another founder again so that's my long term strategy. I think that you have to remember that. This is an asset class that requires <unk> exceeding amounts of patients and it's why it's it's just not well suited to a lot of investors and entrepreneurs who made made their money by moving forward at the speed of light.

"I'm so activated forty four financing last year half on half new. I'm slowing down the new stuff off considerably because i have so much great stuff to pick from in my followings but what and by the way like imagine trying to do forty four financing like without angels it would have been insane insane and i'm also not a steward of their capital. I'm actually technically a special advisor and it's trust and access that they provide side and then i do all the work. What's the average kind of like. Is it about fifty people in a deal on one hundred. It's far less than you'd think and is it like the usual israel check size. I impose strict minimum right. There are some people who are like thousand bucks and up. My minimum is five thousand and the reason is is that i'm trying to allocate a serious serious capital and on the law of numbers you just can't you can't do it but i hope that there's a day and if it's on angel it will be other platforms platforms but that whomever figures out how to get big allocators on the platform will on a platform like this will will aid is best positioned to do this for sure they will figure out that that will be the future capital. I really believe that i i think it will be the future of this asset class for sure interesting because you've seen a couple durations. You've seen equities in kind of late stage private jason calcutta's. I went off angel list and kind of did his own thing which is during there's there's so much development going on very quickly is gonna be fun to watch totally and it is the natural progression shen of at least this part of alternatives because it is so much story driven and founder driven and so on and so it lends itself well whereas if you're doing some like complex complex real estate transaction. I don't know if it necessarily there's a marketplace for everything but i don't know if those things will will take off as much as on this equity side of things. It sounds like you might need started hiring. Some people forty deals amu- never never never is this a solo operation asian besides your poor wife and children yeah and it's intentional what i learned was. I hate managing people. I love love coaching some people so for me. I'm trying to stay a firm of one well. It's true on the employee side but in that i do want to spend i spent so much time on the road like so much time visiting companies or what yeah and hunt just have to live on the road you can't or you pick last places then so does that mean gene conferences me direct never so we say on the road. This is literally going to visit companies. Yes so like classic for example. I have of seattle l. a. new york boston toronto san francisco l._a. Montreal dr tanzania banglore india as my portfolio a few other scattered but there's good concentration so what percentage of the time is visiting the current companies versus source sourcing facing now nowadays it used to be almost kind of fifty fifty and now it's like eighty percent in service of the portfolio in twenty percent which is cool because is you're not technically getting paid to do that now. It's very expensive so the other huge part of that though is any angel investor. That's listening really underneath understand this. I said at the beginning is that a lot of investors have this approach that will give you money and so therefore we accountable to me. It doesn't work that way here. You have to flip it. You have to be and i spoke with one of my probably. I think one of the most valuable companies i invested last year and for example.

There's infinite worse then once you trust someone and with that sort of the new buy everything from them and which is clearly what people are doing yeah by the way the less worse is a great approach to enterprise investing like zoom is still not great. It's just less worse than everything else in the category and so what's also really interesting is that most startups startups that becomes successful become bloated bureaucratic organizations and so what's great about tack to is that for example you probably. We didn't do this one log d._n._a. So log on however za biotech no that's protein cure witches log d._n._a.

Did you do unido <hes> so some of the best investments in enterprise christ look like the most boring like i don't know what this dis like not those the cameras just print money so would love to hear maybe one or two other companies as i know you can't talk about ones that are currently in fundraising registration but maybe that you funded in the last year or even older but just you think are yeah. The best the best investment i made and multiple other than grove is this company called. Jumbo towel and jumbo towel is based in bangalore for india. You went over there right yeah.

And so the thing that my l._p.'s that did go into the deal would say to me is oh. They're just stanford m._b._a.'s. There's this kind of perception that a lot of investors lost their shirts on backing these kind of of industrial companies. They were industrial companies. You had your cousins running them. This is offer business and in india. The way that it works works grocery food so rove is grocery and food. I kinda like what are the things. Everybody has to buy to survive kind of like a good macro crow theme right so three hundred billion of food and grocery sold in india year ninety five percent of it is transacted through these little mom and pop shops that they're grocery business. This has been like ours in the twenties and so because there's a lack of electricity people only buy things like they buy two eggs and this business is effectively effectively a mobile ordering app for these khurana stores that allow them to not only by but then also actually end up having all of the goods woods distributed straight to their stores so instead of them going two hours out of the city in complete chaos and what's also happening..

Is you have to do a lot of coffees alive. Which are you kind of. Sit down and you know you've wasted your time before the meeting starts and so you get access access to for example all of the investments that i make in a year and you can just click backpackers and suddenly eleven pm on a friday night you're sitting in your underwear are looking at investments that you would have had no ability to get into save for that manager syndicate lead being able to invite you into the deal so you carry both of the platform and to the lead but you're getting to choose deal by deal which is excellent right because you're under no obligation allegation and you can sit on angel list. You can't sit on my syndicate and not make investments but many you could just sit there forever and just learn. I think that you obviously we know that the backers perspective way better than i do. But how many leads do you follow. I signed up for all of them holy.

"How well you did sometimes it. Maybe fifteen years and so the idea to about the annual fund is i have to convince i intentionally designed to be the future of what allocators should do with any emerging manager which is basically to say trust but verify so yes i mean allocate to you and i'm going to ask you to explain yourself on an annual basis this and if for whatever reason i choose not to allocate i can cut at any point. There's no obligation to invest funds but then i've got a first right refusal oh and then in addition all open up s._b._b.'s special purpose vehicles which will allow investors who want to double down on individual opportunities -tunities as those become available and so i mean a effectively a few of my family offices it's allowed their allocators to do is to say okay the venture side of the how's it going to be covered by tom and which is good because most allocators do not if i gave professional allocators a set of companies and asked them them to make bats on those companies and we looked at how those allocators would what they would choose and what i would choose it would be markedly different but the problem with these emerging managers is that typically in the typical structure you're committed you're committed to that fun and you're paying fees on that and you just don't know so that that was my intention and then the other part of it is there's now so much money flowing into this asset class and it's only going to keep flowing flowing and blowing blowing that you get all of these terrible managers and so they need to deploy capital and so there's more and more bad companies being funded did all the time and i was just talking to one of my mentors about this last night and he was like you've kind of been saying this and we've kind of been saying this each year and i was convinced by the way that america was going to implode next year from just kind of structural debt side of things but now i'm of the complete opposite view. I think we're going to be in funny money. Free money for decades to come and so what that means is no yield or even worse or low yield. No shield people are going to be kind of jumping into this and what i also think is happening is is that the banks are trying to figure out their play in. I think you're going to start to see his a lot. More softbank type funds lot of people don't understand that the softbank vision funding paying a coupon so saudis money is debt not equity and so that's why i think softbank's vision fund and softbank itself could very well implode and that will cast a chill on the venture market for quite some time because the wall street journal will be like printing article after article about oh my god the guy that was supposed to be brilliant turned out not to be and what does that mean for venture capital indebted at it <hes> ah but i think what the banks are going to start to do is trying to do some kind of like they're going to be more blended public private funds who will try to offer some form some of guaranteed rate of return or promised rate of return with some degree of greater liquidity in the position.

"There was a moment that was very very very terrifying for him and so in the entrepreneur world we call that every morning to ten years in we're like that's still monday some worse than others. There's saying that basically a business is born stillborn. It's your job to resuscitate it every single day until it kind of gets its own vitals or which takes years. I don't think people who have not been in that seat. Don't understand that so in any event what was distinctive about that day was that we just had our second child and within that year now so i guess he's a year and a half at this point and we're just kind of like our first or second date that we've had since he was born and i was describing being very frustrated trying in to manage a team member that worked for me in one moment and entire energy of that. I've just like being so frustrated was palpable to her and then here's there's money that we're about to lose in my mind because this company is probably dad and again companies look like they're about to die multiple times. If you're up close personal but looks like it's gonna die many times through the journey and so and i was so excited though about the fact that she confided added in me this moment and i was able to help him through this perceived crisis and she said capture this moment capture this moment and and at the end of that year we go to an island in hawaii and we have a very intentional meeting happens on the golf course. She doesn't golf but we and i'm not a great golfer but it's four hours of purposeful. Walking is how we look at what we do is we try and stop things we don't want to continue in the year and what we wanna wanna create or drag forward in the new year and my first thought was i wanna be investing full-time but i also never gonna do it as a two hundred and what was the the reason behind that what was the i didn't know at the time but i think that management fees in this asset class of the crack cocaine because what ends up happening is as a fund manager. You become become incentivized. As far as i know you may may know others but the only contract in which for at least five years is your paid regardless of your performance and that the l._p. Has really no recourse other than maybe find secondary for their position -sition and so what ends up happening. I see it play out. All the time is that the emerging manager goes and gets a bunch of l._p.'s convinces them that they're the best the l._p.'s don't really understand how to evaluate these managers and that's the biggest problem is most allocators no nothing about this asset class and so therefore they get them and then they get a couple of markups especially if you can buy quote unquote name-brand v._c.'s and then they come back those l._p.'s and like look this is working look at this you're op three ax in one and a half years and so they try and raise as many funds i have lots of dear dear friends who are great rate managers but for every person that is focused on making carey when you're making two three four million dollars the year and the other part of it is i think about venture capital as as kind of having been the most effective set of bullshit ever repeat it because they also say power lot baby ninety percent of these investments are going to zero and you should look at me a good manager with ninety percent of my picks being failures and that's okay and anybody that signs up for that story is is just not somebody that sees the world the way that i do so let's hear about how you see the world okay so you started making kind of your first angel investments as this would have been mid late two thousands. I started making my first angel investments only in two thousand thirteen thirteen. I don't even know what you call this decade so the early twenty any teens and what was the transition from was there. Did you start doing on your own or did you immediately start to actually syndicate them out of the whole aw progression from entrepreneur to investor to professional semi first angel investments through until i started my fund last year where with a partner that that and it was basically a kind of a great i think we disagreed.

"So I asked him about this specifically, I was like, hey, like investors aren't gonna want to it like Dan gonna wanna take on that additional risk of like trusting that, you know how to launch and scale manufacturing company. And he said, he's like my superpower Josh is I know how to hire all the best people, what am I super powers is finding the right people? That's what I've always been really good at how to how to grill, a person in the right way, right questions to figure out if they really know what they're talking about. 'cause people like to say they know what to talking about until you put them to the fire. They don't really know. So I'm very picky about who's on the team. Everybody brings always a positive energy and a lot of experience to the table. Otherwise, you're not getting higher. And then we get into conversation about manufacturing because I was like manufacturing is nasty like people avoid it. Because it's, it's so hard to do and actually make money on as so messy. And he's like, writing factor is like what I love about above all else. That's my favorite thing in life. I thing ever. Yeah. I love anything that has to put you in rare company, no matter what I do, I'm going to be a manufacturing. And then I accidentally later said, I was like, oh, so you like manufacturing. That's cool and all but that's not gonna fly with the investors. He's like, no, I love manufacturing. I'm still skeptical. I am so convinced. This guy's awesome craze making a funny face the business as you've described. It is unconvincing for me at this point in time. What do you think? I mean, I think that I like kick sense in the sense of, like Edward and Anna sound interesting to me. But I'm not totally convinced that it's a business that's gonna fly and Hector. He has very special superpowers, but I'm also not convinced I'm less convinced that his business is gonna work out. Your even less convinced even less convinced about business plan. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I tried my very best. I do believe. Yes. Superpowers but I think we has the best business for the show. And for our investors, that's, that's where I stand. So you think she's the most likely of the three to get investment. I think Lee is the most likely the three to get investment. I think she's gonna do really well in the pitch room and I think that like her busin-. Is just it just is like, really well suited to venture capital. Because venture capital loves dogs and dating they love dogs and date. And they've been an end. It's, it's like something I can see selling for a lot of money and they that's what they love. Yeah. I mean, another thing venture capital loves is recurring revenue. And I think that's going to be tough to get out of luck and hector's company. So that's probably my least favorite of the three get out, compare apples to oranges here. It's a completely different category. It's a consumer startup. You can't compare that versus enterprise startup. That's true. It's still I, I, I don't know. I, I don't see our investors wanted to wait into the like manufacturing waters. With dig and, and Lee Mike concern is more like what side of the dating app trend? Are we on at this point? Like they Napster like huge like five years ago. And so, like, are we on the wrong side of this trend? Is it is there relate to swipe right on dating? Exactly. Goodwin do swipe right off? Yes. Right. Or is it left? The wrong group of people. Bad things that happen. If I opened up his them. Eat ended up being surrounded by Doug. The wrong dogs. Yeah. Well, anyway, she's so dream, you were talking, the with, with the final company, kick sense. I have my concerns about it.

What did we need to learn about these startups before we could make a call dream, Heather? You're both with me. Joining me in the studio today, hate us. Okay. So I'll go first. So my favorite we love to have favorites. I think that's fine. So this guy Hector Morales with lex allergy.

What do you guys think like he's saying, even the name of the company, lex, Allah, g? It's like he's like, I'm making high end stuff. But I'm making it for at a low cost. And like, that's, that's the part that's that doesn't really make sense because if he produces it here in the US like it just it I don't understand how it's going to be cheaper to produce it here, you know, the materials are more expensive materials. He says he's using Labor's more expensive, and like people like manufacturing shifted to China because labor is so cheap for a reason. Yeah. So I don't I don't get that. Logic. Yeah. I mean he seems to think it's cheaper, but I don't I don't know why. So those are questions. I'll ask him. Yeah. Who do you got for a scream? Yeah. So guys, I loved Edward and kick sense, and his son, the karate consultant, the karate kid. Here's what I think, I think, across sports, like more and more of, like refereeing will become automated, and I just look as far as like tech goes in sports, like look at baseball there. You know instituting more tech, as far as the unpire 's, I don't know. I think there might be something there. And I know that there's a ton of people who do karate kid who do karate. I think they might be onto something. Yeah. But how, how do you know their kids do credit like how many did you do Karadzic? Do I do karate? No. Well, I feel like I would say that the market's just off the top of my head like pretty big for crowd. I feel like a lot of kids do karate when they're young. That's pretty vague. Curry. Anymore detail. Yeah. Well, I will ask, yeah. Any other questions that I should find out and also like what kind of experience do they have like can they sell this, the founders got it Heather, you're up. All right. So, so I am really interested in dig and lead to dig, I take dick, dick dick, I mean, I would never go on it 'cause they don't have a dog, and I'm not that crazy about dogs. But but I think person I not I mean I like if I see them it's totally I'm like happy to pet them, but I don't I don't like them in my house, but anyway, so she just like her. I think she's I think she's like interesting and smart. And like just like can talk about it really easily. And I also think that the investors are. Gonna like it and they're going to like her. Yeah. Now, I think he's great to, I guess the fear is it's like, oh, well is this. Really does this really need to be its own dating app or does match or Tinder or harmony like or can they just like put a box? They're that's like, I'm a dog lover a check the box. And then then her business is done. Right. Right. Right. Right, right. So it's perennial. Question is a sufficient or a business. Yeah. That one. Right. And then, even if they are successful are they ever like big enough of a success? Are there that many dog owners that also want to find their soul mates via a dog pairing app or is this just never going to get big enough to be exciting to investors?.

"This one call in because this is key. This is how the left is going to deal with the dossier. This is David shawny, Oklahoma, great to have you, sir. Hi. Hi, rush. This. I turned seventy yesterday. It's my birthday present. But anyway, yeah, I was listening Sunday to Bob Woodward, and in he was, you know, Banda joke about follow the money, and he said that was just in the movie and the whole thing. The only thing is Bob would worry too. So deep in the swamp. Six months before he broke the Watergate story was working for naval intelligence and I- in what he said was. So this this money goes all he says there was no money linked to Trump. But then he says at the money goes back to Putin, and I'm going no where did he get the link? But that's what they're trying to do. What you mean the dossier not the money? Well, yeah. The dossier the money for the dossier goes back to Putin. What he was trying to say that that is that's the point. That's that's what I wanted out there this this is this is what they're going to try to do. They now are forced to admit what they have known. For two years. Do not doubt me they have known. This dossier is fake. If not for two years year and a half, they have certainly known it. They knew it when they used it to apply for Fiso warrants and renew awhile of the warrant and three renewals. They knew it. They roll the dice and thought that they could make something happen using this and they bombed out. So now, they know that the truth. It's it's one thing for people like me to be telling you today, she is fake, but widely inspector general or bars investigation reveals that it was fake. So what are they doing? They're linking it to Putin, not Hillary, and that's what Bob Woodward set the table doing with his comments that the dossier is linked to Putin. Not he didn't even mention Hillary Clinton. Now, it is linked to Russians in the sense that Hillary hired Christopher Steele to write the dossier. Fusion GPS actually hired steel Hillary campaign one done, and they paid steel via that law firm Perkins co air co I don't pronounce it. And steal did talk to a bunch of Russian agents, and they got together and just made up a bunch of stuff Russian agents steel has known since his career as a British spy. So now, they're going to try to leave Hillary Clinton.
