"For five grand for Connor McGregor, Sean O'Malley and and Stephen Thompson. Freeway first round knockouts. All three Oh, my goodness, man! Man over here. That is a very confident man. So the issue This will be a short fight tonight, huh? What are you doing the rest of the night if everything goes that that quickly That's that's going to be the question. I do think I love the confidence right? Because Stephen Wonderboy Thompson is a guy who, you know if he wins this fight. I think he definitely gets a shot at some point, hopefully soon against Kamaruzzaman, the champion. It's like the one fighter at £170 that he hasn't fought yet Stephen Wonderboy Thompson has been in there with some of the best in the sport. And he's on a two fight win streak. The challenge with the thought on him knocking out Gilbert Burns, however, is Stephen Wonderboy Thompson at 38 years old doesn't knock people out. He wins decisions, so we'll see if that that actually happens. I actually think Gilbert Burns going to win that fight. Gilbert Burns really talented. But I think that is certainly the economy. Gregor and Dustin Poirier is the reason you're buying tonight's card on ESPN. Plus, but you're going to get a great fight, I think with Gilbert Burns and Stephen Wonderboy Thompson James in New Jersey. What are your thoughts on UFC 2 64 tonight? Hey, guys. How you doing? First of all that guy that just called is going to lose five grand faster than he knows it anyway, because it was one. The boys not knocking out burns in the first round. That's ridiculous. He hasn't He didn't even knock out. Uh, 40 fight last time, but he didn't even knock him out. So he's not knocking out birds. Let me get to my point, Connor McGregor. If you listen to his interview with Stephen A. You can tell that this guy has its soul is gone if you're in there, and if you're in M m A. If you're in the U. S. C and you have the audacity to sit there and tell somebody that submissions don't count as losses. Why are you in the U? S? C. Stick to boxing where you're going, What that makes no sense. A bead. Narmada Meddoff took this guy soul and he and he just like it was Mortal Kombat finished him. It was Oh, it's over for this guy. When he loses tonight, he might have one more fight against Nate Diaz. But that's it. All. These understands that love the way he talks, and that's all he does. That's all he's good at. And from a one to attend on the mic. He's at 10 his fighting skills right now, about a five or six when he came back and he fought ceremony. Congratulations. Valuev beaten you being Donald Cerrone E. My my mother could probably be right now, man. No disrespect to them that no disrespect surrounding his the legend. Come on, man. Let's be real. Let's be real. Yeah, thanks, James in New Jersey. I mean, you can't say something like that and say no disrespect that actually was disrespect to Donald Cerrone E. But at the end of the day, I mean, I do think Connor McGregor has not been the same fighter recently. In his career. I'll say this, Charlie. I went back and watched the second fight again. And I thought calmer, Gregor was much closer to pull it off first round finish, then maybe people think like at the end of the first round. All of a sudden, Dustin Poirier starts landing the outside calf kick. It starts breaking down Connor McGregor's leg and all of a sudden, Connor is not the same guy. He's widely and he's taking a lot of punches in the second round. But I thought Connor landed some hard shots in that first round, and I think if he's aggressive tonight, he certainly has a chance to to win this fight. How do you think he's going to come out? In this first round against dust important I mean, I hope he can come out a little bit Looser. I mean, he he seemed very regimented in that second fight, You know, you know they had the boxing stands really was just depending on his face, You know? Very only I think landed two kicks the entire thing. The entire fight compared to 18 by Poirier. And I think that's the key there. I mean, you watch the first fight The first movie came out with was a hook kick, and there was none of that in the second, So I think he needs to come out Looser. I think he needs to just, you know, stick to the old Connor McGregor and you'll be OK. Definitely stick to the O. Connor McGregor. The old Connor McGregor has 14 1st round finishes in his UFC career. We'll see if that street continues against Dustin Portier at UFC 2 64 tonight. Coming up. We get back into the main event. That's next. You're listening to the UFC 2 64 preview on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. It is just escalated throughout the week. We're about to hit the climax. I'm gonna put on a flawless performance here. An absolute clinic. I've thought about it before. I have to go out there and do what I do. Well, no one.

Staying in a hotel, little room service. Nice little heated pool all the things you know If you've got kids in the house, they just got done working hard from another school year. We all remember what that was, like, You know, as adults how much you're burning the candle at both ends. I get your emails. I get your texts. I am so proud of all of you. You're getting it done. You deserve a little bit of away time, but done in a way that won't break the bank Last week we talked about How we shaved off all of these amazing costs. We took the average trip. I think they said, I don't have my notes him last week with me, But I believe in average trip like the one that Victor and the kids and I took a couple weeks back. Should have cost about five grand between hotel and food and all the amenities and we did it for less than two well under 2000, and we had a ball. So it got me thinking about other places. Coast to coast. We could do this. And your feedback has been amazing. In no particular order. These have been your go to places places You can't recommend enough for a fun..

"Willow, the capital gains tax, so Just forget, you know, apparently as that was announced, Apparently, there was a bunch of people who Rush Tau by Tesla's with that and like, didn't even consider that as a concept. So that is worth noting. I believe why. I think that's just a A good point. Brad. Just when you talk about that example just staying on taxes for a second, always understanding what those liabilities are down the road and what the impacts are of the decisions that you make today. Whether it is Taking money out of a retirement account or or what's going on with your withdrawals. We don't want to be those people who overlook the tax bill down the road and then we're hurting a little bit when we find out what's going on, right? Yeah, like, you know, trying to think of some of the best examples of that They're in retirement. We kind of talked to our clients about what's called an effective tax rate in a marginal tax rate and effective tax rate. Your blended rate when it's all said and done. You need to know what you're blending right because that tells you how much to withhold throughout the year like from every irate dollar, you pull out or your pension like how much did you withholding taxes so that you Doing it blended Lee right throughout the year. A marginal tax bracket shows you where your top bracket is. And if you pulled out more money than you think, what that new money is gonna get tax that So if you sold the home and you didn't calculate these things ahead of time we see people all the time, especially in California. Because California can get up to 9.3% in a hurry on these kind of things. So all the sudden, you know an extra 10% of what you could be a couple $100,000 of the sale. No adding $20,000 of tax. I mean, that really, really gets people. I try to do things like I tried advice clients not to not to play that game too thin throughout the year. We see a lot of people that say, Well, I don't want to give the government a tax free loan for several months, which is fine, by the way don't do that. But then all the sudden they don't budget for the fact that they owe money in taxes every year. Plus, like property taxes that they may not budget and it just They'll sit there and tell us Oh, we live off of, you know, 6000 month every month, But then three or four times throughout the year. They have to ask us for an additional five grand or 10 grand. So that just goes back to budgeting a retirement in making sure if you think you're normal month is 6000 month. Don't run a retirement plan for 72,000 year, right? Run it for 85,000 years. You've gotta give yourself enough buffer for those random things or those love some expenses that happened throughout the year. You know, with all these like, nuggets of wisdom, Did you ever watch 30 Rock? Jen? The show 30 Rock? Yeah, a little bit. I probably couldn't quote it to you, but I watch. No Alec Baldwin has this business character who it's He's like flamboyantly. I don't know. It's just that this character cracks me up in the show. And when he found out he was having a kid he spent like weeks like recording himself. Giving life advice to was like unborn kid for like every possible situation that would occur like in case he passed away, and I was kind of thinking about that. You know, like, you know, having Slater, my youngest son, and I was just kind of sitting There and not that it's like more, but it was just a funny 30 rock episode. But I was kind of thinking that from an estate planning standpoint in one dream, like if other people thought that would be a good idea to actually be able to record, you know, certain things about yourself. Kind of, you know, we have this ability that nobody in human history like ever had. So it's kind of an interesting thought. I wondered, you know, for all these little nuggets of tax information, right, So that way, my kids don't end up under withholding, you know, 20 years down the road, you know, maybe I'll make some Some Jack Donaghy like like videos for them. E don't know. Maybe that's extreme. But we could do something much less extreme before that, Which is invite you in, right? We've had thousands of San Diegans take us up on this. It's our Epstein.

"Their data and people with X, you know, issue getting vaccines and and being okay, So I think that there's going to be, um more data available. Certainly wants the FDA. Um, uh, issues and approval. If that is what they do, and then the CDC will issue guidance. And so I think that the CDC data is what Parents should look to and then consider a zoo. They consider whether or not their kids should get vaccinated. And then I think the other big question in all of this, and the challenge that I think we might face here is Whether or not schools will require the Copa 19 vaccine. Um, you know, it's possible that that occurs and it but this is going to occur on a statewide level, so it may very much depend on where you live to determine whether or not your kid's gonna be required potentially to take the Copa 19 vaccine to get back in school. Um, that's not the case right now. But we also don't have any approved vaccines for kids right now. So that may change once we once we do, so, you know, Like I said, I think there's a lot of, um You know, uncertainty right now, just because we don't have The data or excuse me. We don't have you know the guidance from the CDC and the you know, even your state where you live, telling you what is going to be required in what's gonna be not, But I think that you know, certainly will learn more as the CDC also looks at the authorization from the FDA and then issues some guidance in many states.

The Guy Who Did Everything Wrong But Still Figured it Out with David Pere

"Paret welcome to the bigger pockets. Money podcasts. I i talk to you today. Thanks for having me on the show. Mindy scott always a pleasure. Yeah we it's always a pleasure for scott and you're just for being on the show that was that was like a comma scott calm like always a pleasure for both of you. Okay okay probably a bad use of commas. I'm big fan of the comma. Anyway david paret is a career marine corps officer and heat. I learned about the term fire from our very own got trenched and brandon turner some schmuck who hosts another one of our podcast for bigger pockets and he learned about it in the most five way. Possible on a hike in hawaii. Why were you in hawaii david. I was stationed out there. Okay okay so. I was there for business business. Let's do some air quotes around that business although as ceo. I guess it's really convenient to go out to talk to brandon hop on clay instead of just hopping on zoom. Anyway david paret. Where does your journey with money. Begin first off for those listening. I have to correct you. I listed i am. I am not fancy and i actually say that with a badge of honor because i think that actually makes for anyone listening to this who's military that actually makes this way more Powerful because. I'm just an enlisted schmuck. So everyone thank you for correcting me. Please germany correct me. I really wanna try learning all of this military suffered. I'm just wrong all the time so sorry about that. Are you an enlisted officer or just Just an enlisted marine. He's an enlisted marine. Okay now tell us your money story. Are you on board with us using the term semper fi to describe your journey absolutely. That's an accurate statement or disrespectful to the phrase semper fi. No no it's motto. It means always faithful. So oh okay. Tell somebody already david. My money story starts off in all those same places that most service members do terrible right. I joined the marine corps in two thousand and eight. I had super frugal parents. Who did all the right things. Even to envelope budgeting. They taught me all the things you're supposed to do. Bought the off brand stuff to save money. And then i joined the marine corps. It was my first real salary. I went to japan. And i was like. Oh my god. I got money and i blew it on everything i went to a on even went on a deployment tax exempt pay. I came home with seventeen thousand dollars. And i bought a truck a rifles and tattoos a bunch of alcohol and probably took some people out on dates and have nothing to show for any of so. I did Terrible things you know by the time i was. I would have been two thousand thirteen to fourteen. When i i mean i probably had an a negative net worth and somebody handed me the book. Rich dad poor dad because they were trying to get me into Amway ride in helped me sell stuff on the side. And i remember telling the guy like no joke i was just like i don't read like you know like i'm a marine. We don't read books which is not entirely true but And he pulled a cd like out of his pocket and was like wow. I've got a cd. And i know you drive a lot on recruiting duty. So plug this in. And listen to it and i listened to it originally with the intent of like well. He called my bluff final. I'll listen to the stupid book. And then within three months. I had bought a duplex and things just started. Roll like i. I listened to that book i like. Oh wow this is cool. I downloaded audible. Listen to a couple other purple library books and then i was googling. Every time i didn't understand they just go to google. And then i stumbled upon bigger pockets and then the book on rental property investing in the book on no and low money down and then like right in the same timeframe someone got really drunk and parked on top of my harley and so they totalled my harley but they didn't want to he owned a car dealership so he didn't want he didn't wanted on insurance so he just paid me cash and then i took it to the viewership and they paid me for it and so i basically got the original price. I'd put into this bike at the same time. Like looking for a duplex and use an fha loan bought a duplex lived in one half rented the other half and then things just kind of scaled from there. So at this point. You're sitting there. And you're just becoming aware of wealth-building concept in general and it doesn't two thousand fourteen. You have basically no wealthier debt at all at that point. Yes so i guess. By the time. I read this book. It was actually probably october of two thousand fifteen. I had a little bit of debt. I mean maybe maybe a few thousand in credit card debt in an auto loan. But i didn't have. I probably didn't have a thousand dollars in the checking account so i only had you know i probably only had like a negative three or four thousand five thousand dollars net worth so. It wasn't like terrible but it was definitely nothing to show for it at all. But you were contributing to your tsp right a little bit. I had done the minimum like eight to ten percent. But what i had done. And this is the There's there's different funds right. When i first joined your money went into the fund which is government backed securities which is in perspective. I've been putting eight to ten percent. Mit because someone told me to. But between two thousand eight and two thousand fifteen. I left it in a fund that essentially earned two. Maybe three percent interest never lost money but it earned two percent interest while the rest of the stock market was earning twenty thirty percent returns coming out of the two thousand and eight recession and i just ate it so i could have way more money in their if i just know where to put it or what more money in. So it wasn't until two thousand fifteen that i really cranked up and started putting twenty thirty Last year sixty percent at one point in my in my thrift savings plan. Okay so this was not a meaningful part of your position at the time when this all started right now i probably had five grand. Dsp ray how much cash did you have at the time as well. If i hadn't totalled my or had my harley totaled basically none. I was pretty much living paycheck to paycheck. How does a harley jump. Start one's cash position. I i don't really. I don't have a perspective on. This is a motorcycle worth eight. Grand is it worth fifteen twenty. Twenty-five i i have no clue. No no no not that much. I probably got probably like eighty five hundred out of totaling. It wasn't super expensive harley and it was a few years old i've probably got about eighty five hundred but i was living missouri which is super affordable and then i was able to use the fha loans. I got into this house for like four grant. I think it was thirty. Eight hundred bucks. So you're stationed in missouri and you buy a duplex and can you walk us through kind of how the housing allowance and all that kind of stuff works for those who are not familiar with military benefits just so we can get a a total picture of your position at this. Starting point. pleasant fifteen yeah. I i think in springfield. My housing allowance was like eight hundred and fifty dollars a month and the housing allowances tax exempt. So it's you don't pay any taxes but actually counts as a little bit more As far as debt to income goes towards your lender. I think it's like one point two five times. Whatever your housing allowance cost when you go to buy. But at the time i was living in an apartment and there's like five fifty a month for a two bed one bath apartment and my lease was coming up on and do so. I was able to get into this place. I bought the duplex for eighty. One thousand my mortgage was six fifteen and there was attended one side for four seventy five Market rent was like five fifty. So i was like okay. Well this could. this could work nothing else. I'm going to be paying one hundred and whatever that math is one hundred forty dollars a month out of pocket for the mortgage as opposed to the five fifty. I was paying on rent. And i probably should've used the. Va loan on that but nobody knows anything about the va. Loan and the lender actually told me not to because he told me quote unquote you can only use it once which is wrong air so much confusion around the va loan. I hope that somebody someday we'll sit down with a really great lender and talk all about the. Va loan and if they have already it would be awesome to link to that in the show notes because the va loan is only applicable to who service members veterans Some federal employees but generally just service members and veterans. Okay so that's not necessarily all of our audience. But i think it's really important to note that you can use it more than once you can use it a lot more than once. You can use it as many times as you want. There's some stipulations there. Because you have to renew the eligibility and after two or three times it gets kind of kind of convoluted but you can the first time you can use it. There's no limit on it anymore. So you can go and buy. There's a guy. I don't wanna knock on wood right now. There's a guy under contract on a triplex for one point. Six million dollars in the bay area right now that we're we're helping and he's going to basically move into this thing zero down and he's high income earner out of the military veteran and in the medical field so he's got a good day but he's gonna pay zero down get like two and a quarter two and a half percent interest on this thing and his tenants are essentially going to pay the mortgage and then he's going to be on the hook for maintenance repairs.

We're not naming him. Tristen had no offensive. There's a interesting listening. And I said, Here's how this is. Here's how I think they should go. You know, It's really 50 50. But here's my take.

The Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid

"Why not start with the biggest. Yeah i mean this was that we gave our edmonds talk right a truck towards the end of last year by finally got spencer longer time in over last week and then a few few days besides and yeah it's It's a lovely thing. I it's crazy when you think how trucks come on i mean this is basis This was this was like platinum. So it's the second to talk trade limits of the top trim but it had all the the hybrid system and loads of additional equipment at. It's just a it's a beautiful. You have the beds that lie flat. You know you'd these new you can hope for these seats that she basically turned into like a business bad many in most business class seats the little tables of fell out in the middle after push button guessed. It goes down and then you can fold out these tables. You know the The quality the leather just a fixed feels inside like a like a luxury car with tons and tons of space and glass roof eh. It goes all massage seats. Must have seats in fifty. He just took disciplines. You but it's a seventy full. This was a seventy four thousand dollar at its trailer. Anything that range. The belts at thirty grounding ghost serb about almost one hundred you know. He's almost kind of mad to think of it as an f. One fifty you've got almost kind of compartmentalize it but a great thing. I mean it drives. it drives. Well the the hybrid system is kind of nice to have around town but there is. It's not perfect. You feel as you do so many hybrids that little bit of that little bit of the transmission power train on refinements as it cuts from. Jim motor and back again. When it's what he's almost really generates emoji doesn't sound too great either but it's kind of nice to have at low speeds particularly if you kind of more not more urban centric like i The only thing that really makes it feel like a truck is just a a the physicality of the thing and be be the ride quality. You know you always that way. You realize you're in a truck and not next. Uv still dot. Kind of fairly fairly Ride right it's still has to toe in. Carry a payload which is actually interesting. Because i did when. I when i drove it at the ford event. I did grab one of the big trailers i grab one of the large like stream liner or. What do you call. I one of the big trailers and towed with it and a power boost towing was interesting because you know first of all it loads up that suspension which is actually more comfortable with with a bunch of weight hundred that it is without oftentimes and the combination of of the electric motors of getting you know getting onto the freeway. Up to speed or from a gecko i. I signed that of saw as a bit of it. Vantage having that low low. End torque yeah. Solids detaineees instantaneous. Just to get things moving not so. Yeah it's a cool thing and the only thing is what he you know in isolation and then start thinking if you need a truck so nathan seventy five grand you know. You're in july jelly x y. And i wanted to support a lincoln navigator. Seventy five thousand dollars buys you a pretty serious. Suv yeah it does i. I don't know how much i don't know you guys can answer that but how much cross shopping there as i feel. Like if you're a truck guy or you need a truck or have driven trucks for a long time like you're just you're just kind of that yet. You're kind of in on right. And that's what ford's banking on right. That's why they sell a million of these things here. It is and you know what i mean. Obviously i've got no talking about english roads. You know you couldn't drive it forms in the uk. But i'm a truck guy now. I love this. We went out with my. Yeah your truck guy on sunday and we we we went to hike and then we called and got some food on the way back. We actually the three of us in the bed so was like covy friendly friendly family environment. You can't sit outside. Maybe he can sit in your body. It was great. I drove a number of them. Like you're just driving now and we're saying that you know these are seventy seventy five thousand dollars trucks at this point but they don't have to be right. You said they started about thirty. I don't even know if it's even less than that. But do we know where the power boost version starts. What is basically if if if it really is a utility vehicle for you. The idea of the power boost is fantastic all the plugs and the outlets and the power on board and the the the job site stuff so kind of makes you wonder like what is the power boost entry level price. Because i don't know the power boost it's not like power was ten thousand dollars. It's a it's a few thousand dollars. Above so i don't know are. Is it somewhere around. Thirty three grand to to get sort of an entry level power boost. F one fifty. It's two and a half you remember correctly it's about two and a half gram. Does an option always tuna off ground above the. Va is an option. But i think what ford's done Had a so much complexity in in ordering a truck these days. If you ever see the old guide for netflix fifty. it's insane. It's like one of those old fashioned telephone books But what they have done is they've allowed this they Powertrain all on pretty much. The whole reg movies on the very bottom train but instead of just reserving it for plaza limited. They're actually giving you access to it across the right so you can. You can spec the truck exactly how you want it. So yeah i think it starts in the The probably starts in the thirties or the very the very least forty is you. Don't have to yeah. You don't have to get all the bells and whistles to get the power trae which is great because depending on your depending on your needs. A hobby project could be super useful. Yeah i i. I think you're right in that. I don't remember if power boost meant you'd have to get a bunch of other stuff a lot of times like oh. I want this package but you have to. You know get three other defaulted and i don't think you have to. I think you might have to get towing and things like that. But there's a there's a bit of stuff. But yeah and i think that that generates a system in the in the in the load bay is a is additional is additional but it eight some at least giving you the option you don't have to have you know.

You could potentially consider and interestingly enough you're more likely to find an apartment complex or landlord who's willing to accept credit cards for rent payment. Then you are to find a bank willing to accept a credit card for a mortgage payment for instance if your landlord uses a service like cosy. You can choose to pay via credit card. Although at the same time you're gonna pay a fee in order to do that and even the mortgage servicers that do accept them on the fee that they pay to oftentimes plus extra at the time of the payment so i do have one mortgage company that will accept credit cards. Nice but i. I can't i forget if it's two and a half percent or three percent need to go back and look so it just never make sense. It just negates the bonus from the car exactly right so and then another potential option is you could use the checks. Your credit card company sends you aka the convenience checks if they certainly will want you to start using convenience. Checks is what they call them really what they heart like cash advance checks and they're just not good for you because of the fees that are charged for using those checks they sent out to you and it's typically somewhere between three and five percent so again with those as well. It just doesn't make sense to use them in order to pay your mortgage and that's because the rewards that you're getting from doing so are typically capped at two percent. It just doesn't make sense to pay four percent to get two percent. Yeah sure unless. Amex starts categorizing mortgage payments as groceries right. Exactly six percent two percent spread but jin a roundabout way that we've heard of before is to use your credit card to purchase a money order deposit that money order with your bank and then pay your mortgage with the account that you deposited the money order into however the the problem there is. There's only a couple of money order. Companies who accept credit cards just Western union seven but even then another hurdle or the big fees charged by the credit card company. By the way. I like to get my money. Orders when i get my slurpee at seven and that's perfect combo. I don't think there are seven. Elevens around us are there like i don't see them anywhere near atlantic. Maybe in the burbs. We don't like near where we live. Yeah yeah but the the problem here though is A money order jen. You're gonna touch on this. It's a type of guaranteed payment right and so much credit card. Companies are going to treat that expense as a cash advance. And so because of that you'll be charged for it again in the in the three to five percent range so again this is another instance where the benefits you would receive would be outweighed by the fees that they're going to charge plus in this case. There's a lot of hassles. Well we're gonna keep coming up with option. Here's one more. Plastic is another Website that you could turn to. It's the one option that we know that allows you to pay a bill like a mortgage with your credit card and it's worth looking into matt. You've used this before when they had promotional offense but they don't have a professional offering the rate that they charge us two point eight five percent and so again the only time that it would make sense to use plastic to pay mortgage is potentially in the case that you need to hit a credit card sign up bonus in order to score what like six seven eight hundred dollars from the initial spin that you gotta meet with credit card if you're having trouble meaning it through other things that won't Charge you a fee that it might make sense to pay your mortgage with that credit card through a website like plastic at least just at once in order to make sure that you get that sweet bonus and basically the way plastic forks. Is that when you pay via their website. They then cut a check to the mortgage company. Nashville paper check. So that's how that's how it works. It's certainly an interesting service. And when they do have promo lineups matt. Didn't you at some point. Five grand and free money. Think so and so. This was a couple of years ago. I think when they first launched But basically they were giving away fee free dollars and so you had to spend limit in. Hey up to five thousand dollars. We'll cut those checks for you free of charge. And so i was able to like you said literally. I was able to hit a spend limit for a new credit card. Sign up bonus That i may not have otherwise hit but to be honest. I have not seen any other sort of promotions like that. Since then you are able to get fee free dollars by referring friends and so every time you refer somebody they use their service. You will then receive some feverish dollars but again. This isn't something. That is really sustainable. it can be something that maybe do once saying here to hit a spend limit but otherwise. It's not something that you can kinda regularly go to and so jen for you. It's probably just stick with those automatic. Ach payments and then. Just keep an eye out for you. Know maybe codes that plastic does put out there to kind of maybe less than that fee for at least a month or two of payments ultimately trying to get your mortgage on a credit card. It's just a lot of hassle and even if you were able to get to work out you likely won't be earning enough in cashback to to actually make it. Worthwhile might be more of a key hot pursuit or audit quixotic. Okay all right so yeah. It might be one of those things where you're tilting at windmills. You're pursuing an opportunity to try to earn greater cashback when you're paying your mortgage but ultimately there's just not a cut route that exists in order to help you do that. And score those cashback rewards every month without paying fees that outweigh the potential opportunity.

Proposition 25: Cash Bail

Proposition 25: Cash Bail

"Political correspondent Marissa Lagos is covering prop twenty five for cake. And she's also the CO host of the podcast political breakdown. Welcome Russa Pale, Libya. I. Can you take us through how the cash bail bond system works in California now? Yes. To do this I am going to make you an accused Felon Olivia Allen Price Right. So you're walking down the street in San Mateo County. You, get arrested on suspicion of possession for sale of a controlled substance. This wouldn't be like you have a little wheat in your bag. This would be like maybe you got a bunch hair win or they think you do. The bill for that is going to be set at twenty five thousand dollars just by the schedule that exists in San Mateo County. So the officers would arrest you and either you would have to over twenty five grand to the county to secure release or possibly depending on how big of a drug dealer they think you are. They might make before a judge who could either lower or increase that twenty five thousand. Dollars say you don't have twenty five grand laying around I mean really who does right? You would then decide whether you're going to stay in jail until you can get a trial set or you might call a bail bonds agency and what they would do is essentially guarantee the county that they would pay that twenty five grand if you skipped out on your case. So if you didn't come back for your trial dates. In exchange for that, you would have to pay them ten percent of that amount. So twenty five, hundred dollars. If you have the twenty five grand to post your own bail, you would get that money back regardless of whether you got convicted of the crime or the charges got dropped or you. Were found to be innocent. You would just get that money the just there to make sure you show up at trial. However, if you didn't have that kind of cashing around and you had to go through a bail bond agent that twenty, five, hundred dollars that you gave them to secure your bond, you would forfeit, you would never get that money back. The whole cash bail system has been under fire for a long time for being inequitable give us an example of how that inequity plays out. Look people who have been accused of very violent crimes up to murder can sometimes post bail if they have the means but a lot of people end up languishing behind bars for really minor crimes because they just don't have the money their families don't have the money and disproportionately study after study shows these tend be black and Brown people. If you can't pay that bail amount. You can't go to work. You might lose custody of your kid by losing your work. You might not be able to pay your rent. So what critics of the system say is that it kind of perpetuates the cycle of poverty. And potentially leads more people into crime or can lead people to plead guilty to things that they did not do or that they might have a good chance of fighting because they essentially just WanNa get out of jail and get back to their lives.

Should I ask my dad to invest in my business?

Should I ask my dad to invest in my business?

"Survey S Should I get my dad to invest in my business or should I ask him to invest my business? I say, I like to point out that it's good that you actually say invest. An investment means he's going to get a percentage of the company in return for the twenty thousand dollars you're looking for. And this is not a loan. This is not like loan me twenty grand and I'll pay you back. Your father will be a part of the company, Meaning Hill own part of it. It may not be a controlling stake, but he will own a good portion of it. especially the fact that you haven't started your company really doesn't have much value because. You don't have anything to show yet because you haven't sold the APP, you have made money from customers been made. Any revenue has showed any kind of traction to say, Hey, this company is worth X. amount of dollars right now is just the hopes that the just purely on the concept and the idea that you actually give him a return on investment. So the first thing I want to say that if you're going to approach her dad for investment, you have to seem as an investor and not your dad, which means you getting to present him the business just like you see presenting on shark tank right and what does the first thing they ask on shark tank all The sharks to ask the same question. Every time somebody does a presentation to go through the whole presentation things like that. The first question they ask is how many units have you sold? How many sales have you made a money Jimmy revenue they want to know do people actually want while you're selling the market value this product because the investor that's all they really care about this. This thing have legs have the potential to grow. Their opinion really doesn't matter. It's the market's opinion that matters. So you're not in that position right now where you can actually give numbers and proved that people want what you have, and that means you need to give up more equity to get the money. So think about the value of your company right now it doesn't really have much value because you're not selling anything you know have nothing in your hands it you don't have anything created, but what will it be in the future If it somewhat successful, it's really hard for you to tell because you don't have any data. But even if you say in two years, the company is going to be worth one, hundred, thousand dollars. In order for an investor to want to make money, they're to want to at least double their money. Okay. That means they won't forty thousand dollars in return for their investment of twenty thousand dollars. That means they're going to at least forty percent of the company. If you're uncomfortable with all of this, then my advice us a try to bootstrap your business much as possible you some of your savings grow as you can think of the minimal viable version of your APPs. You can get idea validation for a skin product market fit get some customers. Make some revenue see this has legs first before you actually try to raise capital because it's a lot easier to raise the money. When you have a working product when you have sales when you have customers, we can say, hey, people like this you know and it's making money and here my projections. But right now you don't have any of that data. So. If you're willing to part with, you know a big percentage of your company. Then go ahead and get an investment from your father and doesn't matter if your father anybody else that is an option if you're willing to part ways with that large chunk of percentage whatever that is if you still feel like you, WanNa bootstrap you WANNA raise some. Money try to see if you really need twenty grand how much is the bare minimum you need to star this thing to have it off the ground maybe it's not twenty maybe it's ten years, five thousand dollars and five thousand dollars can be earned right. You can actually hold off on launching this product and save five grand after a few months. Of living a little frugally. If you absolutely have to take alone five thousand dollars is a whole lot better than twenty in terms of what you're gonNA pay an interest. But if you do want approach your father and you feel like you'd like to have a part of the business. There's nothing wrong with mixing family with business as long as it's clear expectations are what everybody's getting in the deal. You don't want any sour grapes later on, you want people to feel like that. They got what they asked for what they they knew they were getting into. This is why it's important for you to be open and honest with your dad if you're going to approach him and as well as pitched to him as if he was an investor, you have to convince him that your product. Your APP actually has the potential with any data you can gather even if it surveys even if it's a market research, even if it's just simple as. Hey My APP is in this market and the potential in this market is X. amount of dollars of revenue year is how big the pie is, how much money that can be made who are the big players in that market who your competitors and how you going to compete with them. These are some things that you can really explore and display and present to anybody who's interested in investing, including your father and all this time wasted you're actually investing. Some, really good time and learning a whole lot about the market. You're about to enter

How To Consistently Reach Your Sales Quota

"What's up? Everybody Needs Kevin Daisy. So we are fairly new at sales as far as the station is concerned having professional. salespeople. We're about, I guess a year and a half into it I. It was Eric and I always sell in the business. then. We had a Glenn who came on about. Not, even a year and a half ago. Now, if our sales professional and we're looking to hire more so we're kind of quickly scale on this up. But we have a very basic system as far as what we're looking for. What the monthly quota is. An and they should be bringing in and it is super basic and as for me, it still works I know we might get more sophisticated as we grow in the teams grow and we have managers and things like that. But right now it's it's super basic. So interesting lay it out for you. and you can see how all this may be different than your model or if you don't have a model because you're disowned for yourself. something you can think about doing. SARS is very. Is. Five thousand dollars a month. In monthly reoccurring revenue. That's the theme here monthly reoccurring revenue five grand every month, not five gram once or twice or ten times, and then Kinda sit back. Five men every month. That's all we care about. We want those results. If you do the math on that, if you're GONNA do five grandmothers salesperson. Times twelve that sixty thousand dollars of monthly reoccurring revenue. So that means a month thirteen. We've collected sixty grand. From the clients that you've brought in as a salesperson here. At Mont Thirteen but take that that book of business. Times another twelve and that seven hundred, twenty, thousand dollars. So a very successful salesperson in their first year should be over half a million at least. And that's what looking at. That's the kind of success we need to grow this business. Now we do have ramp up period. said. You come on with us for as a salesperson which we're hiring right now as recording this for sales. There's a ramp up period so The first few months. Washington. The first four months or not one hundred percent of that. So we actually sort out with about a two week training period. A month is twenty, five percent of five grand, which is twelve fifty. Then he gets to fifty percent seventy percent and then the fourth full month. After a two week. Period you're expected to bring in five thousand in monthly recurring revenue. So right now, this is a very basic system and it works. We don't care about how many phone calls you made. We don't care about how emails you sent. I don't care if you want to network in meetings or not doesn't matter to me. It's. Can You bring in five thousand a month in New York consistently. And again, this reoccurring. So this is contacted. Using on twelve month. So, as predictable cash flow that we can count on for at least next year. So. That's really how we're building up our sales and growing the company. In if I can just hire another person and they can achieve that. Five thousand per month each. Then, we're in really good spot and we're growing very quickly. So. That's what we're trying to do again right now is very basic, but it works for us. We've had other people tell us different things and don't do like do it like this. Do like that. But for us is working out, well, we also pay salespeople a salary plus the commission net. And we do the life for that the life of the account. So. We've got a pretty good system going also the salespeople here they're not account managers. So they can build a book business and then keep building it not managing. There's accounts. Our operations team which according to the episode on that but. Operations seems takes over that relationship and the responsibility. So the salesperson continued yourself. Now, they can touch base and and reach out of the client of course, but it's not really the responsibility so. They Cabal. You know what you're tracking with sales was important for us the results, how much can you bring in per month and for us the minimum is five grand per month. And that's going to set us up for success. We were

"Matt is in Washington DC I matt, welcome to the show. David asked thanks so much taking my call. Really appreciate it. Sure. What's up? Hey question.

What's really going on six thousand I. Say it again sorry said what's really going on here how much is the motorcycle five thousand dollars While put out one hundred and forty, six, thousand dollars in debt. We'll write a check and pay all that off, and then we'll have a discussion about a motorcycle. And then by the bike yeah. I I don't I to investment properties I I rent where I live and twenty four grand on a car. But I don't know if I'm over thinking or not. But I guess if you know I don't you're saying maybe I am overthinking one percent of your life where he's is a five thousand dollar motorcycle ninety, nine percent of your life where he was one, hundred, forty, six, thousand dollars in debt. Yeah. Write a check and pay off your debt go by the motorcycle. Are you buying a motorcycle grieving over the girlfriend? Yeah. A little bit. Yeah. I want to do. I thought my weekends would be with her and now I'm out together. So I just WANNA go out and make friends and just kind of have stuff to do you know you can make friends without a motorcycle. Batman. Why why do you need a motorcycle make friends? The only down the only negative part about the motorcycles number one, the debts and number two it sounds like it might be some grief spending grieving over the relationship and the not that it's because it's not gonNA, kill you financial. You can afford to buy the bike. You can afford to buy the bike and set fire to it in the driveway and not worry about it wouldn't. It's not GonNa kill you financially but what you can't afford is to get into a situation where you react to. bad feelings in your life by spending. Yes you can't. You can't put that group in your brain that that group will destroy you long-term definitely will definitely will an and hear me clearly ma'am. When you pay off this debt I wanted to go ahead and get your emergency fund backup because I gotTa give it to you to have that kind of money at this age. That's great. You just doing a little bit backwards from what we teach you know. So go ahead and pause all your investments right now because I want to go ahead and get out of debt and then makes you get your three to six months out enough to. Do that he's probably just needs to allocators couple hundred grand if I understood right well as one hundred and fifty thousand in a savings in one, hundred, thousand investments no show you some of both it lets us all the savings. Yes. Hundred Forty six, thousand year paid off four thousand dollars, right? Okay. Pull some out of investments and make sure it's set aside an emergency fund can't him by the bike coke right and you get all three done. Then you've got your first three baby steps, we call them in place mat but just just search your own soul and look in the mirror and go dude is this just I'm just grief spending here. and that's not something you want to get into as a long term thing that every time I feel bad I spend every time I feel bad eat. Those kinds of. This is why we teach don't move until you are married. Don't make a life changing move because he said, he moved to this place for his girlfriend. I mean that's a different subject. We Dave Ramsey show so. Anthony Oneal show whatever? So I'll go with me. You're saying don't chase girls and boys around the country. And not unless you not unless you are married why move to the hardcore why move in with the person you are hardcore Dave Kinda move on I'm not saying on that. Yeah. But I mean chasing somebody you know moving to the city with the person versus. Moving in. Not Moving in. So you into the City House Oh. Yes. See I still I'm St-. If my daughter came home and said I'm moving to another city so I can be closer to my boyfriend I will have a problem with that. Yeah. I mean, it's not wrong. I'm just saying. You're up and ruining your whole life for the possibility of this thing to workout. I think I'd want some circumstances listed out around that before I would make that call. Okay. If it sounded like immature and flighty like she was being used up or manipulated definitely out if she's a strong woman, make her own calls. That's a different issue.

Does Influencer Marketing Work

"Does having your business or brand promoted by a celebrity by influencer by tastes meagre in your market really work does it do more than just awareness as actually convert into actual sales? That's what we get into in today's episode. The first thing on a mention is that influence their marketing has levels. Okay. Now, everybody is going to be able to afford to use Shaquille O'Neal's influencers or Kardashian or the rock for that matter. Okay. But for most businesses, you don't need these big celebrities. You don't need these big names will you actually need is somebody who has a following? The has an audience that would be perfect for your products and services somebody who's really need. But has raving fans, I'll give you some examples. Pat Flynn is considered a influencer in the blogging community, the online business community. The content marketing community converted is a email marketing service for creators for bloggers. So pat is a big deal in that space. So when PAT promotes converted, it's going to move a lot of business because. I actually love what he says love what he does and they'll do a he recommends. So if he promotes convert it to his email emails on instagram on a social profiles does a Webinar that's a perfect match for converted. They're actually GONNA make more sales from Pat Flynn whose only known in that community. Then let's say a B. Actor who's well known but maybe doesn't have the following in that space. There's a cycled CAMEO DOT COM. The has celebrities that are well known household names that are willing to give shout outs and some people even endorsed businesses. Now, this might look. Cool and seem nice and maybe ego boost for your business. But it's probably not gonNA move a lot of sales because Kevin from the office is really not the authority in your niche market is not somebody people really trust in terms of a recommendation it's kind of cool thing to have, but it's not really gonNA move sales. So I really want to impress upon you today is you wanna find celebrities in your niche in your market who are the people that have the biggest following who is the biggest name in your niche if you're in the swimming niche WHO's the biggest? Swimming coach that everybody knows about in your country if you're into snowboarding who is a big snowboarder that is on youtube though has a following that people watch. You don't have to go with the household names, but the names that are known in your niche are really powerful because they can really really influence their audience to buy your product. So how does this all work? Well, I recommend when it comes to an agreement with an influencer is do a combination of a guarantee minimum plus commission. This allows them to have some skin in the game and want to push your product and. Promote it and recommend it and use it and give a testimony. So something like this would be like You know you're gonNA share this on your email list you're going to do a Webinar with me and you're GonNa you know post this on your social profiles, three times in one week and We're GONNA pay you. Let's say ten thousand dollars. Now this is just a figure I just pull out of my head. This is something that you can negotiate. It also depends on the following but in addition to the ten thousand dollars you WanNa say, Hey, use an affiliate link. Here's the link and you're going to get twenty percents on all sales. Again the percentage pulled out of my head. You can come up with the number of that's right for your business. But the point here is that they get a combination of cash upfront for doing what they do or even still fifty, fifty, five, grand five grand. In this example, you know five star five after the WHO fills obligations, and then they get the ongoing commission for any sales they get. So they can continue to promote you beyond the minimum commitment and they become sort of a partner with you.

Dota Pit Is Done, Here Comes OMEGA League

"Yes, we are Doda pitch has concluded cinder. and. I personally didn't get to watch this tournament. because my sleep scheduled disallowed it as you know, but `Nigma did beat alliance in a best of five grand files three, two two. So a very up close series talking to this tournament. It actually just had a lot of mean closer towards the end right to to ones, and then the three to which is great for the region. Right. If the teams are close in keeping games off each other worth noting was the absence of secret obviously who have one Basically everything the last two to three months in Europe So them not being there might have leveled the playing field a bit. It's hard to say how much the other teams have caught up when secret aren't part of the tournament. But obviously, `NIGMA great confidence boost. It's been awhile since they've been doing this well Close finals, five games every game was I mean it's kind of a patch right? Most Games were like thirty to forty five minutes. There were no marathons and no GIG stomps but you know it's it's kind of just your your average game time. I guess have you played assemblyman a game yet by the way? Have still have not I don't. I might have actually. have. You finally been introduced the I'm trying to remember. If I had a game with a I. Don't I like maybe I had one actually I'm not positive how it might have happened but did it was one game? Okay. That's incredible. I mean it's not that important. It's to me they're the coolest items in the game, but anyway continue. No. Yeah. So I mean we. We should just I think just focus on the podium, right? Okay. Third Alliance, second `Nigma I and also scary team. Veasley. Teams at any time looked like all three could win because of how the series went so. Yeah good stuff going forward into the Omega League which is a much bigger tournament in terms of price pool we are casting in that by the way if you missed we started casting yesterday. Yes. currently casting their close qualifiers for the European region and that will be casting that over the next week roughly. Make sure you guys check that out actually I. Didn't even I think we're we're not just doing closed qualifiers. We'll doing some of the normal pre playoff stage so I think other than yesterday. So going forward today after this podcast actually will be doing one series an after today, we have three more days in the next two weeks span that were doing games. And then. I'm done at the very least your your schedule is going to be like, but don't know. I don't know anything about what I'm doing. Is this the first? Tournament secret is. After their break feeling that break has been that long it's been like a weeks is the first one. Yeah. I've been two weeks is a decent on time and Doda. To be honest I three weeks. So just to refresh people, EG is going to be part of the EU division on this. So it's quite staff I mean we might as well just mentioned all the teams team secret navy liquid VP flight, a moon E. G. OG alliance `Nigma and NIP, and then to close qualifiers which I mean we can go off on a limb and say who we think are GonNa win because I. Think. Viking. Is definitely like major. and. Then the secondary team, it could be bait. A. Pires these days think hell-raisers quotas well as get their stuff together like there's there's multiple options but I would definitely say clear favorites from nearby. To get first place. In those qualifiers. They've been pretty impressive. They've been they've definitely been very good Yeah. I mean I think this tournament is worth like just emphasizing bit that this might be quite possibly the best tournament of the year at this point because with the development of covert I, don't know if we're going to get any big land until the years over If things start opening up in October or whatever tournaments right now can bank on it. So they can start booking venues and planning everything. So it means if there's announcements of of stuff getting a bit less extreme in, let's say two months than they need a preparation period. So I think at this point, any big land this year's just very unlikely could add this online ones mega stack tournament at least for the West there's probably going to be bigger tournaments for the east than this but. Yeah, it's a it's a very big western tournament. So if you if you WANNA watch some of the best daughter, this is your chance to maybe watch the biggest turn. It says it goes through to September six is actually true correct Dan. So it's a really long term. So this close qualifiers and then there's a big group stage and then there's playoffs. Are Okay. This is gonNA. Be Dumb to bring this up. What are we casting for? The next two is adjust close squall. Here's my actually mistaken. I think it's just close quote Holy Shit. I think the Games I believe the group the group stays in Europe starts August fourteenth. My birthday and I. Good. Let. Me Just check the America's America Start Sixteenth and Asia is already ongoing with the group stage. That's August. I, sixteen they're way ahead. So the playoffs and group stage of the main event.

Par Dot com and reach out to those guys and let him know what you got. This is going to be a really exciting build, and if you didn't get a chance to vote on the first round, be sure to vote in on the next rounds and also tell all your friends about this project. We need to blow this thing up. We need to get thousands. Hundreds of thousands hopefully, millions of people involved in this and just see what we can come up with as a community I'm sure we can cook up something crazy, so that should be really fun. Maybe you've got a moped project. Project you're building or maybe you just went out and bought yourself your I. Mo par. Maybe it's not a show car. Maybe it's a little ratty. That's what we're talking about here today. I WanNa talk about the rise of the ratty muscle cars, because it seems to me that in the past few years, these ratty muscle cars and radio trucks have blown up. They are huge right now and I think I have the answer as to why this is occurring, but you know. I think it's multifaceted, but I really liked the movement I think it's an awesome movement. I think. It opened some doors for people that would otherwise not be able. Able to get into a muscle car. I think it lowers the barrier for entry for people like myself that don't have a lot of money can't buy show winning car that can't buy a fully restored Khuda or something crazy like that, but maybe you found a ratty mo par in your local classifieds for a couple of grand that needed a little bit of work, but you could tow it home and get running and driving lickety-split and get it on the road. That is Iraqi muscle car, and that's what I like to see. I love to see these cars on the road and not rotting into the ground. I think it's awesome. So now that we're warmed up, let's get this show on the road. This week project car the week is actually a truck that was posted on Wednesday July twenty, second at three PM, and going with the theme of ratty muscle cars and ratty trucks I thought this was a perfect fit, and it also happens to be really cool and has a ton of potential and would make an excellent project vehicle for anybody that wants to get in the Mo- par game and doesn't have a lot of coin in their pocket, so let's get into the at. Nineteen Seventy Dodge D. One hundred short box, five, thousand, six, hundred ninety five dollars Columbia Falls Montana lowered six inches the right way twenty inch wheels out back in eighteen inch up front wheels and tires, brand, new three eighteen auto, call or text titles. Status is clean. All right folks what we have here is what appears to be a running driving nineteen seventy truck. And it's got a cool Patina on it. It is not a show truck by any means if you think you're going to get. Show quality paint, and no dense dings or bumps bruises. You are wrong now. In case you're new to the show. I am a huge fan of mope par trucks and especially the nineteen seventy two to nineteen eighty, because I do have seventy six myself but I really love the early swept lines, and they have a ton of potential, but the good thing about trucks. For some reason they look amazing when their team it out. Maybe it's just me and now don't get me wrong I. Do love a beautiful. Beautiful Show Truck I. Love Him. I think they're gorgeous. There's something about an old. You know for lack of a better term farm truck that I really like especially ones that are slightly customized. You know little lowered with some nice wheels. They just have a personality and its personality that I really liked the nice thing about this one is that runs drives so like many of the other project cars? We've talked about the past. You can go out and enjoy this thing while you work on it this. This thing is good to go scout brand, new wheels and tires on it, and you know what it runs and drives. It's got a three eighteen in it, so you can keep three eighteen, or you can upgrade. Get a modern. Hemi, you know five thousand this. You could probably get this trump for five grand,

John & Chris' Wild West Robot Ranch

"Good Morning Welcome to marketing over coffee. I'm John Wall Christopher Ben and I. Don't even know where to start. Where do we start? It's just I. had this whole insane story that I just refuse to go into about my old neighbors who were being allegedly? An ebay security team for a year. Just like this insane strikes. I'll just throw to that because. That's totally crazy. Things are crazy. Crazy Times ten. But you know the thing. I will say about this from a marketing perspective. Where was the Social Media Monitoring Team Right? Where was the the Alex? Team where the the folks at Ebay who you should have seen because it was not. Something that was kept coat totally quiet this. There's there's been content about this. What happened in its complete failure in your marketing analytics governance where nobody's watching, the someone should have gone through the mentions of the brand and stuff. That doesn't look. We normally don't send bloody pig masks to people. And that's the thing that amazes me. There is just like this line where your company becomes so big that you have these. Black OPS teams. It's like a security blacks OPS team within your own company. You know because you're so big. So. Yeah, just totally nuts and yeah I'm crazy, but it speaks to the need that you absolutely should have human review, and you should be having somebody in your Pr. Your comms team somebody looking at the social media mentions looking at more than just like the line graph of you know. How many mentions you got that day? Actually sampling the data looking in there because you should be able to see. That article looks like it could be a problem. One of the Challenges Crisis Comms is that like for regular social media monitoring pr you can rely line chart of number of mentions went up because you're looking at data and the aggregate when you're doing crisis communications, you have to be looking at every single article because you don't know when the next spark is going to become the next bonfire, so somebody's gotta be reviewing stuff that the software would say hey, this for flagging this even just for questionable with what to do with it, and clearly that was not happening. Yeah, yeah, and so probably best practice would be. You got to get all hands. Anybody that can generate content and understands the company is going to have to transition to watching the feeds during that crisis positions that make sense exactly, and and you need a specialist software for that. Because a lot of social media monitoring tools just kind of like big batch stuff. There's no anomaly tracking in real time in most software packages. So it's important that if a crisis is going to be a problem for your brand, or you see it being a problem, you need to have that real time feed. It should look kind of like you know. The Matrix low at all the walls, going by and things, but without it you will get burned. Yeah, there's just so much that you have to dig into like you said. You have no idea what's coming next and when it will flare up. You had Boston dynamics to selling their robot for seventy five grand. You can go ahead and buy yourself one of these things I don't know. What do you think is? Has the time come for robots I mean there's they actually show in one of the marketing bids it doing patient screening, it can do temperature scan hit people's foreheads, and you don't have staff moving through the office, so it seems like a great application but I don't know what's your overall? Take on the robot revolution. It's an incredible piece of machinery now in the terms of service. If you read it on, the ordering page does say you may not. Use Robots to intimidate or harm people or other animals, and your warranty will be void, and we will revoke permission to use the robot. If you do these things so they they do have the remote kill switch if you start doing stuff that. Should be doing with it that said I want to figure out how much it actually can carry. Because that's totally the kind of thing that you would put a saddle ought and just ride around. Well. This is another thing I've said this before on. The show is that I think they consciously went with creating dog size robot. Because there's no reason they couldn't do one. That's five times the size, except for the fact that would scare the daylights out of everybody on Earth to see this larger than a cow thing barreling down at them. As a side Gig you have a horseriding farm. Wouldn't the ROBOT BE? Great is like the trainer to learn how to ride horse because you know it. You're no danger of getting bucked off because the robot literally will not do that. That is a heck of a question. We could just make a horse suit for one of those, and yes, it would totally behavior. We wouldn't. Even you know. The ring could be fixed. The thing would stay within a foot in every direction wouldn't go to the other big win. I was saying that for here's throwing. Hey, this is the time of year where they're getting six or seven hay wagons a month that need to be the he needs to be loaded and thrown up into the upper barnes and yeah, having a robot do that with just make all that go away instantly. Nobody likes to do that work. At the AG. It's not like we have a line of employees wanting to do it either it's it's quite a struggle,

7 Unconventional Tactics to Scale Any Consulting Business

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today we're GonNa talk about seven unconventional tactics to scale any agency or consulting business right now, so number one. Neil and I talk about this a lot I think during times this where people are might be dialing back their purse strings a little bit. You know you offer some type of thing where it's a no-brainer to work with you so in a no brainer example would be. Let's say I go to kneel and say hey, Neil. I like to work with you to provide at services, you and I. I know you need help and you can't really afford it right now. Why don't we work for you for a month or two for free? And then you know then we have annual deal agreement after that so basically how it workers? You don't pay for the first two months, but what you can do is you can split up the cost with the next ten months afterwards, and you can make it. That's good for you. Actually 'cause you get repaid on it. They get to save on cash flow for a little bit, and you get a longer term deal, so that's the first one. The next one is use project management solutions, because if you're trying to scale your consulting business and you're, don't use project management solutions to communicate with your clients, communicate internally and track time and hours on who's doing what it's a pain and a nightmare to continue to scale and grow by doing that what you'll do is you'll quickly figure which clients are profitable. which ones aren't which ones you're? You're not spending enough time on which ones you need to spend more time on as well as how people could be more efficient too, so that we can get more done for your customers for the amount of time that they're spending because they're paying a flat fee in theory ends up coming down to hourly rate because you know that you have cost and yet to make sure as Number three, I think it's really important to learn copywriting what I mean by. That is not just writing essays or whatever, but learning how to be persuasive learning how to structure sentences learning how to write less doing less with more a lot of that. Is that ties into how you do work with anybody really whether it's your your friends, or whether it's in business, but there's a course called increased on academy, and you know this is shared by our mutual friends Saieed, and he actually started out. What's his team and what? What happened was they got a lot copyright like they know how to write email copy now they know how to write all this other copyrights of Lincoln copy email copy linked, and especially I see the people that are writing good copy. They get like four to five hundred comments or so, and that's just awareness for you so I think you know taking advantage of organic reach was linked thin, and just in general when you email people being very sustained. That's going to get you more at bats for getting more deals. As a consulting business and discussing a number four is you need consistent deals new customers more revenue, because if you're not getting that one, you're not gonNA skill to your consulting businesses going to dwindle away. So what I want you to do is go look all the recently funded companies. You can get a list on places like crunch base, and I want you to outlying everything that they're doing wrong that you. You can help them with and breakdown how they can fix it all in a PDF. Send it to the founders and investors, and let them have all the information for free way of find is a portion of twenty thirty percent should be hiring you to fix those issues. It's a great way to scale your client generation or your generation side of your consulting business, all right number five is niching down. Down so here's the thing like we have an agency accelerator coaching program where we help agencies grow and the number one thing that I see that's a problem. Is that people in the very beginning? Try to compare themselves to the big agencies Oh. My God the big agencies all these big clients they work with all these people. They were across all these industries, our full service and they try to be everything. Everything to everyone, but keep in mind. They have a lot more resources in terms of capital and human capital as well. You don't have that, so you have to think about what you're really good at what industries are good at also what services you're exceptional lots because we tried to do all this stuff in the beginning to overwhelm you, and before you know it, you're out of business. You gotta think. Think about how you can be focused in the very beginning and the problem with agency type businesses is, it's really easy to become unfocused because there's a shiny new object every single day. The next thing I want you to do is streamline your reporting process. There's a lot of tools out there from Sem Russia's to address to what's agency analytics. Is that what it's called Yeah Raven Tools There's a lot. Lot of software for whatever nature an that help you streamline your reporting. You can even use things like Google data studio, but if you don't have your reporting right cause any type of consulting business you're in. You'RE GONNA deal with clients on a regular basis. Send him notes on what's being done and the results whether it's marketing or something else about streamlining the report creation will save so many hours from. From your team all right number seven last, but not least think about how you can structure talked about in the very beginning pricing where maybe they don't pay you, but if the timing is right, what you can do is think about how you can price based on value or how you can price based on performance, so here's an example if I get on a sales, call it somebody instead of saying hey. Hey We just charge twenty five hundred dollars, a month or five thousand dollars a month or whatever you know. I actually have a conversation saying. Hey, Neil, you know if we're able to get these results for you. Let's say we make you ten million dollars. Are you in the pay? Million Dollars Neil of course, and it'll be like okay. How much does it? It's ten million in profit or ten million. Right ten million in revenue. I don't know but yeah, yeah, well. Let's assume Neil is not you know meals, not the entrepreneur. Let's say it's actually like big company and you know it's like a executive like a director level. There probably would be okay with either or it is true anyway, so the thing is like if you can get them to say okay if we're GONNA, work together and you know after a year or so you know what we're having coffee. What would success actually look like? What do you want right? So you actually get to the crux of what they want. And then what you can do is, you can charge a small medium large type of thing. Thing meaning instead of just charging to five grand. Maybe your lowest years five, grand, five, grand, fifteen, grand sixty grand a month like six Grand Fu pricing right, and sometimes you put like you know additional levels of support, but what happens is sometimes people have such a big ego that they just over two biggest ones. No, no, no, we're! We're going to go for the biggest one and I've seen that happen a couple of times, so that is number seven I hope that's

Scaling an Amazon Business to 8 Figures with Fernando Cruz of Marketplace Ops

"Ladies and gentlemen welcome bouts the amazing FBI? Paul Kasey placed beef. You base. Tell us alone fats. A lot of what we discussed is one of the US particularly as well. Today's guest is no exception. As phenomena crews of marketplace ops and Pixel Fi- they supercharge Amazon sales with bronze by managing their accounts amongst other things. And I'd Pixel fight as other things as well so warm. Welcome to the show. Thanks man appreciate you having me so no problem so I know that one of the things you've done creighton eight Vega Amazon brand yourself in a very short time. Is it three years that you've done something five years three as okay? So this obviously Quite the achievement. So that's the thing I want to dig into today but I want to put the angle of surviving and thriving in in difficult. Times obviously wearing unusual times right now and I think it's not a bad thing to create anyway a business. That's robust right in good times but particularly with excellent now so Tell me the basic story that obviously eight figures threes. That's that's an impressive numbers. Someone the basics. How did you arrive at that? Yeah I mean obviously? It was with the caveat that it's not during cove nineteen does a little bit easier but Yeah I mean you know. The story is my business partner and I were best friends from college. We we'd come from Tech. We had like a a background in kind of like high growth companies and a Yemi we each put in. I think a twenty grand into the business at the time and And we tried building actually like our own shop vice store for several months and we realized like Oh man this is really really hard finding customers getting into buying our website and we tried that Friday for about five months And then you know well. We decided to do what we're running out of money is. We're like okay. This was originally our passion project. And we're like okay. You know screw passion. We just need to make money because like identity Ended up having to live with your parents again and And that was kind of like a last resort in so we kinda works. Well what about this like selling stuff on Amazon were were buying everything there anyways like? Can you even do that? we found a course online like donald it And honesty we just pivoted like we didn't even a ton of time thinking about it is like this current business is not working And at the end of the day we don't want to go back and move in with our moms and so yeah I mean we. We didn't look back. I mean we were definitely a pretty lucky at Are A. We started with four products at the same time. And so that helped US learn a lot. I don't recommend that strategy For people who are starting out. I think it's probably better to go a little bit slower but you know again. We were running out of money. We need to figure stuff out and we hired a coach right in the beginning. I think that was super super helpful Just because he was already doing forty forty five grand a month But you know we're able to make so many less mistakes I we still don't get me wrong but by having that coach in your corner Hey you need to get used to giveaways You need to order more inventory. You need to do this unity. This and really helped us like learning the basics in the beginning and Yeah it was. It was Super Super Helpful. And then maybe like our six seven product was just like a home run and it basically we. We had to borrow money from family and friends just to order more inventory to keep in stock and so it was kind of Cinderella Story to begin with Where the parties that we started with those first four it okay. We discontinued most of them. We didn't reorder Tanaz. We learned a lot of lessons of niches that were too competitive But we we had some that were. We'd one that was a decent success in ended up dying a few months later but it was like okay. This really proves the model and second in that first month on Amazon. We did more than like five months on shoppers. I combined in Zora okay. This really works and so we just need to refine how we're choosing products And so we really started focusing on that area of the business because we knew that would cut I control how are futures specifically on Amazon? Yeah and then we ended up doing a little over two million that first year and then once we hit that home run product. We really started expanding That product line in in really focusing in that was kind of how we basically got to the ten million. We definitely borrowed a ton of money from family and friends. Kinda help us again like Placing those peos air shipping everything just because we couldn't Get everything done is really sloppy to be to be honest. We kinda like Stumbled our way through it But those kind of a lot of the story. Wow Okay so that does really quite the interesting story. I mean So I was going to ask you about an the capitalization Because obviously if you're editing to billion dollars in a year you're going to run out the amount of money you put into the machine to start with but I just wanted to just go out to the store. I mean very funny because he's also always I've got a new because studying ECOMMERCE leader with my friend Jason Miles. Who is a massive shoplift by fumble and is doing very very well without and help sort of Amazon base people to a pivot? Some of that business I would say shall proviso instincts have the opposite conversation where you find it really hard. What was it about the you've found so tricky with just briefly getting into. Yeah so I think Good question so at the time. And you know we're thinking very binary right and so we came from tech and so you know the tech business model is very clear right. You raise a lot of money. Needed grow faster than everyone else. Which means you spend a lot more You every round of of equity financing you kind of a you delete. Delete Yourself And hopefully at the end like you're successful and then you sell a huge amount of money you get a percentage of that and you make a ton of money and we'd seen our and we kind of had mixed feelings around that light. You know you you. You're starting business to be your own boss but by raising a venture capital you now have a boss and you hear all these stories of these. Ceo's get moved out of their own companies and so we very early on mid the distinction of life we bootstrap this company And so basically means not taking out like for US equity financing and so we were comfortable raising debt and a very specific thing but we found was. We were afraid of spending a lot of money on ads to be honest at the time that we weren't like comfortable spending on facebook or even like Amazon or this before we're on And so we're like okay. Well the best way to do it is to to build partnerships in that comes along with their background like I was the head of sales before But yet partnerships and then our with blogs so like doing seo content and stuff but because we were bootstrapped. Only a finite amount of money to start with. I think at least for us will we've found is the time that it tasted get a blog from like zero to having enough customers to generate enough. Income is too long and we were doing this. Full time That was our challenge if we kind of found a a more hybrid strategy. Which is we figured out paid ads so we could actually generate more customers a lot faster than I think. That would definitely worked on shop but it is something that we weren't really comfortable with the time to be totally honest And I think that's kind of wire shop if I was doomed from beginning it may sound like a funny question to somebody when get somebody on his massively successful in areas to US why they didn't decide whether another one I think it's important to follow the reality of somebody's story and not enough interesting In soon reality now I guess what happened in this that you you turned your cash into cash again quicker than the model that you were trying to follow was gone it in and spice the yet trying to because I think fulltime you can't wait for takeoff right Tell me about the next question. Sorry bothers buys thing. You've obviously got the success in terms of the revenue so we have to dig into the details How much money did you end up barring that first year if I may ask question yeah no? It's fine courtship so we borrowed originally? I WANNA say I bought a lot. I think it was maybe two hundred two hundred and fifty grand And so yeah. We went to like everyone that we knew that was high net worth. I think it started with like thirty from one friend. Thirty from one of our parents. I think it was. My Mom. Ed's start with sixty and it was. It was going really well in. We aware introducing more products in that. Funding is if you if your products take off you need more cash again to keep them in stock in so they kept doing really well and so we just kept Compounding our problem in so we can refinance out one of those thirty I think for like a hundred I would say in the first year. We probably raise two hundred grand in that first year.

An Open Source Economy of Abundance with Marcin Jakubowski

"Hello everybody Vince Horn here for another episode of Buddhist Geeks and today I am very very delighted to be having a conversation with Martian Jukovski. Good to have you on the show Martin and thank you so much for taking the time to chat with the Buddhist geeks. I'm really excited about this conversation. Because so much of what you're doing. Feel a resonance with but it's also different from what we're doing here Buddhist excited Dick's where the intersections excellent. So let's dive right in. Okay I've got my bathing suit on and I'm ready to go seven Fahrenheit and sweet Maysville Missouri. But I'll join metaphorically awesome are you. Are you at the factory farm right now yes. That's the Kansas City area. Okay cool and I and I understand that. You have also google fiber out there. Oh and that's an addition since about a year now and that's why we can have this conversation hopefully seamlessly today. Yeah no mood. That's a big game changer fiber. We spent the money on a week. We got the pipes run here. Trenched bury them and the whole facility with Up to four GIG. Wow that's awesome. See if you're kind of you're living the dream for me. Which is you've got high-speed gig multi gigabit Internet and you're out on a farm building Chit Really Cool. I'm excited to talk about your work so so I saw. I saw your tedtalk a number of years ago. Odds probably about ten years or so ago now Something like that and and just immediately was like okay this person and your partner Katharina. Y'All are doing really interesting work with the open source ecology movement and In that talk you spoke about the global construction kit which you know. Last time I checked this is like a fifty fifty or so different items that you're looking to build open source that the kind of you would be necessary for human civilization to To to this global village construction set fifty industrial machines to create small-scale civilization with modern comforts essentially the critical machines from tractors bread ovens production equipment energy equipment and and Carson everything. You need to create infrastructure. That's the basis of thriving than so we can talk about then getting meditative but you have to provide some basic needs. I yeah you can't you can't just Meditate without without some basic needs Yogis the the people they had their comfortable caves and flame. That's right that's right. Yeah and some nettles to eat right and and and you're going to see the vision that you'll have is is going well beyond that. I mean you're talking about being able to replicate modern comforts without having to rely so much on the sort of centralized modern systems that we've all come kind of dependent on. Yeah exactly the idea is. Let's distribute the economy. So right now we're in a state of centralization but the fund that by fundamental design we have a distributed world and I think that comes from the first principle of energy energy is distributed. Solar Energy is distributed. That's pretty much where all the power for today's economy comes from. It's from the sun right so by nature. We have a distributed system but the way we created we kind of reformulated as humans isn't into a hugely centralized one so to get back to more in touch with those principles of distribution decentralisation that gives power to everybody literally and metaphorically to tell me more about like the journey that you've been on with the global village construction set because I saw you've you've made a tremendous amount of progress on that front. You know it's one thing to hear someone give a Ted talk about about something that's like an inspiring idea prototypes. It's another to see your ten years later. Like have made real progress on the stuff again to hear about that. Yeah definitely maybe you know you can say at the time of Ted Talk. Were a few percent down right now. I would quantify it as like one third done so we've got hundreds of prototypes Twenty or thirty unique prototypes everything from tractors to CNC machines. Three D. PRINTERS HOUSES. Akwa punit greenhouses. In fact we actually added the house as a critical machine since we kinda thought well. That's a living machine. Actually belongs in the global village construction set but the power is yet getting a comprehensive said along a construction setup route. So we're looking at it more as building blocks and to derive from how Lennox Open source. Software has there is one of the keys to success was large modular break down into very small parts can have thousands of people working on at the same time. And that's exactly what we do with hardware breaking down into modules and development steps for each module sewer inching along at the time of the Ted. Talk I kind of felt like I missed my great opportunity because I had so many people contact me. And all of that and we didn't have an organization. We hardly have an organization right now. We really don't yet. Were not at that level of having a business so to say like a real solid organism. But we do have a lot of foundational work. I think we are. I would call ourselves an exponential organizations laying a solid foundation with all the prototyping that we have done now ready to to convert that to economic impact so transitioning from the Playing prototyping to to the to the next step which a lot of open source Projects Forget and that is a product. So what what are the products that we can offer that anymore? Anyone can use okay. That's cool. I mean it's interesting. I'm thinking back to win. I got even more kind of interested in Y'all's work and I think at a certain point I started to really feel this kind of poll to be sort of subtract myself out ourselves out of the sort of capitalist system a bit more to be able to offer meditation teaching more freely. You know to be little less dependent on a pay for service model and you know one of the big questions that comes up is like okay. We'll around like housing costs. And how do you? How do you reduce your cost like housing is like one of the major costs and you all were some of the only people that were talking about being able to build an an ecologically sustainable you know house for like twenty five grand? Yeah and that's unheard of you not to be able to hit those kind of Knows numbers and that's what I think is really interesting about what what you're trying to do is you're really setting a goal of kind of price reduction that really competes with the capitalist markets on their own terms in a way. That's hard for them to be. It'd be hard if you're actually able to pull this off for companies to To to have any response to tenth the Price House or tractor or brick press or all the things that you're building. Yeah that's exactly right so let's dive into. There's actually a very interesting page like when I look at the WIKKI statistics. There's a page on our wicky open source ecology that org slash wicky which has cost of living. And you said it. The number one cost of living is housing on average. I have some stats here in. Its sixty eight hundred dollars a year. Then the second one is your car. Thirty four hundred dollars a year and then food twenty six hundred dollars a year and yet it adds up to about twenty thousand or so. Just let's see the the number actually is twenty thousand per year per person according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a household doesn't sound too bad but Ideas let's so let's go for example to the CDC home just to show you like a very tangible example so in a CD go home. You mentioned twenty five thousand dollars okay. But where's the Labor that's materials so the model there is a client? Pays probably like ten thousand dollars service fee. We host a workshop where we swarm on the build with about fifty or so people and build that in five days and I think that the more like a turnkey cost to the client. We more like seventy thousand. That's kind of what if we if you'd actually start full cost accounting like the twenty five thousand dollars as materials. Yes so you'd have to figure out how to do it but we did with a swarm based build the idea there is you are providing an immersion education. So basically you're selling inexperienced. People participate in get a lot of skills have a lot of fun shatter some of the limits in their mind about what's possible in terms of effective building using very collaborative learning rich learning environment. That's very supportive. So that's the product we're trying to develop and probably if you look at economics probably like seventy thousand dollars for a a house builder a basically the House. The person who wants to have the house before fourteen hundred square foot house so still about was Chris in the cost of industry standards. Right we actually roll this out. So there's a whole organization to behind it and sell. That's kind of how it looks right now. Now of course if you're a skilled guy and you've got a family that can build that while you're not gonna be able to do it in five days but over a month he can take our modular construction methods because everything in the system is designed to be handled by people not not example cranes or large machines the way we designed modular construction method lends itself to a swarm belt with normal people and really reducing the skill set by essentially trying to turn this into. Lagos as much as possible That's interesting and and from what I gathered like everything that you're doing the documentation around the processes like everything is part of the open source model like everything is shared shared. Absolutely everything. There's two levels so one is design seconds. Dente price design. And that's that this is where we talk about the concept of distributive enterprise. Yes the idea if we do it. And it's good for the world. Everyone can use it and and people in modern society. People think that you have to be proprietary or you have to have a competitive advantage based on Ip Order to win here are competitive. Advantage or collaborative advantage is the the opposite. Is the fact that we're collaborating? And if you think about it you're in kindergarten you'd understand because at that point we kinda were talked to to Cher but from High School Into College. Johnny were completely taught the opposite and right now. There's a huge cultural barrier that prevents people from comprehending that. Hey we can actually do. More together.

Hi-Performance Heritage - The 1968 Dodge Scat Pack

"WELCOME TO TALKING. Mo- parts high-performance heritage man. The world is crazy right now folks. And if you're like me you're probably sick of hearing about the worldwide. Corona virus pandemic. Here's the good news. There will be absolutely no fear. Mongering Kovic nineteen talk here today. I hope you're staying healthy and safe and I'm here to give you a little escape from the chaos by talking Mo- parts with you together. We'll try to get our minds off of all this craziness. Twenty twenty and talk about what I believe to be the greatest year in mopey history nineteen sixty eight. The year that Dodge introduced the scat pack to an entire generation of horsepower junkies and change. The world of MOPE ARE FOREVER. There are just certain aspects of Mope our history that truly made a significant impact and the scat pack of nineteen. Sixty eight is one of those things but before we get started with project carved the week rev up the show with high performance parts get moving with listeners stories and shut down the show with high-performance. Heritage. There are two things you need to know number one Chris at talking Mo- Parts Dot Com. That's my email number two two zero nine. Twenty eight Mo par. That's my voicemail. Your voicemails will be shared on this show so please keep them appropriate. And so will anymo- par stories sent in for listener stories. I'll even share the emails that I think would make fun conversation on the show now that we took care that business. Let's get this show on the road. This week's project car of the week was the nineteen sixty nine. Plymouth road runner posted on the moped. Hunter Page Friday March twentieth at nine. Am here is the at Nineteen Sixty Nine Plymouth. Road runner numbers matching Bucket Seats Center Council. Hearst four-speed three eighty three and ninety six package original rims and build sheet runs dry scraper. Twenty five thousand. Five hundred or best offer not interested in low ballers condition is listed as good an title status listed as clean located in Webster. New York. Here's the thing folks. I like this car. It's numbers matching. It's got you know some desirable options the bucket seats center console. It's a four speed. It's got the end ninety six package and the guy's got to build sheet. He claims that it runs and drives. Great those are all good things and for twenty five thousand you know. I think he may be a little bit high on the price. The color of the car is kind of like a dark Emerald Green which? I don't believe it was a factory color looking in the engine bay. I see that it's kind of like a flat black. So that's one thing that annoys a lot of people for me. It doesn't bother me that much unless it's a fully restored car and they cheered out on the pain on the engine bay and they went black. I don't really like that. But you know a driver quality card no big deal. That can always be changed later on down the road. The car is cool. It's got the factory tack you know. Obviously bucket seats the console. Those are all great options and ninety six. Who who doesn't love the Air Grabber Hood? Come on and it's got that coyote duster air cleaner. The car looks to be in reasonable shape. If you look at the pictures of the guy posted the car does not look like a rob box. So that's a good thing. I think that this car has a really good bones and for twenty five thousand five hundred. I think there's a little bit of room to work there. I would like to see the price around eighteen thousand. So that's seventy five hundred off which is a fat chunk of change. Let's be honest so you know around. Twenty two is probably realistic. Twenty three twenty four. Maybe I don't know but for me. I think it's a great idea to spend low to mid twenties for running and driving car that you can enjoy so this is definitely a car that I think would be a good car to consider if you have that kind of money to throw around in a moped project because running and Driving Project. Cars are amazing. Why because you can enjoy while you're restoring them or modifying them. Whatever the case may be so. I think this is a great example of a you know reasonably priced project car and it is numbers matching which is desirable. And it's got to build sheets so that's cool so you know. It does have a picture of the fender tag here in the fender tag. Looks rotted so. Hopefully you know with the information on the build sheet and the original fender tag may get a re- pop vendor tag made and enjoy the cars restore it. He's got some pictures of the underside. The underside looks pretty clean. Doesn't look like there's any cancer. Even the trump pam looks really good. So I think this is a solid car to start with especially if you don't want to invest ninety thousand dollars on a restoration this has really good bones and it's always a good thing to start with a project that has good bones because then you're not doing a bunch of metalwork on it and you can focus on the things that really matter getting it running and driving tiptop condition. You know this guy says it runs drives great numbers matching. You WANNA preserve that. Engine so Mike for me. If I wasn't going for a Oh e quality restoration and I just wanted to drive the thing. I just drive the thing you know maybe pull the original engine out and put something else in. That's von and maybe just start with restoring the engine you know if what you're looking for is an OEM quality build start with the engine get that restored and then slowly work your way to the point where maybe it's time to tear apart the car and do the paint and body work. That's necessary to get it. In Primo condition. I liked that the seller shared the Haggerty Vehicle Valuation report that says Twenty eight thousand two hundred on in very tiny apprentices average value. He shared that as like a selling point that prices based on opinion desire ability. And all that stuff. He's asking twenty five five haggerty's average values twenty eight to I still think. Lower Twenties would be a great price for this car. But I also wouldn't have a problem paying you know around mid twenties for it just because it is numbers matching. That's Kinda hard to find in today's market for a reasonable price. And you know some people say you know twenty five thousand dollars. That's not a reasonable price. Okay that kind of money. Well then maybe you should look at something a little bit lesser than a sixty nine road runner decent quality roadrunners and any decent quality be body. That's somewhat desirable. 's GonNa Fetch a lot of money in this kind of condition and you know that's another thing what what is a lot of money you know is five thousand dollars a lot of money because I see a lot of cars that probably were ten grand that people are listening for fifteen to twenty and the potential buyers are lookie Loos. What have you will say? Oh that's a thousand dollar car. Well is it. Is it a thousand dollar car? Do you know what I mean. So pricing and the Mo par market right now is kind of iffy. You see a lot of different people that say vehicles are worth a tenth of what they're actually worth and then you see guys that will say you know. I pay that for car. That's clearly not worth the amount that is being asked. So there's a for every seat folks and you know. Some people got fatter wallets than others. My Wallet is Slim Pickens. It's gone on a series diet as of you know and I say Oh yeah. I would buy that if I had the money. I don't have the money so me saying that. It's kind of like saying yeah. I'd I'd buy a charger Daytona with a Hemi. If I had the money you know what I mean so take what I say with a grain of salt but I've seen you know hundreds maybe even thousands of these cars were sales since two thousand fifteen when I really started doing a deep dive into posting all these cars and finding them and seeing the values and you'll hear stories about guys that go and pull you know roadrunners out barnes. You'll see oh. They paid five thousand dollars for it and restored. The car is worth fifty thousand or whatever? I'm just throwing numbers out here. But that's uncommon. That doesn't happen every day. So you can't really base values of cars on prices from back in the eighties and nineties. Okay it's not the eighties and nineties anymore. We need to stop thinking like that. These cars the numbers are dwindling. Every time a car is found in a barn in a field in a old garage. That's one less to be found. The market's really interesting and it really is hard to predict but I will say that they're never gonna be as low as what the eighties and nineties were. I don't care what happens in the economy. This economy could tank six feet in the ground. And you're never gonNA find a charger for five hundred bucks and if you do get on the show. Let's talk about all right because I like hearing those stories too. I have buddies that have paid crazy prices for really cool. Be Bodies and bodies. You know. They're out there. I'm not saying that they're not out there. But the chances of you running into one for that cheap pretty slim and if you do there's a lot of guys that will triple your money right away. You know what I mean. So if you're looking for a quick investment car. Let's say you find this car that I'm talking about here on project car the week and once five grand for it. Well I'm looking at the car and I'm saying you know eighteen grand would be steel. In my opinion you get this car for thousand and you could easily flip it for fifteen. That's a ten thousand dollar come up. That's ten grand right in your pocket. It is what it is. So that's project of the week. Nineteen sixty-nine Plymouth road runner for twenty five five air. Grabber car numbers matching three eighty. Three four speed. What do you want consul? This things got it all. Let's try to get it for less than twenty all right. That's project car of the

The fine print that we all agree to all the time whenever we do anything online specifically it saying there was a clause in the terms that said you cannot leave a nasty review about US online but remember. It's been three years since they posted that review. They don't remember seeing any non-disparagement clause when they bought the Chomsky's so the US this Internet archive site to look at the old terms and conditions from three years earlier and that clause was not there when they tried to buy those Chomsky's but there is still that email from clear gear threatening to find John. Three thousand five hundred dollars. Which of course is a scary warning so John and Jen? Sorta calling lawyers and all the lawyers said basically the same thing. Oh sure you give us a five thousand dollar retainer and we'll see what we can do and I'm like dude if I don't have thirty five hundred dollars to give them. I don't five grand to give you the couldn't pay any of these lawyers so they just went on with their lives. A while later they went to buy a car and we were sitting in the in the dealership and finance manager comes over to US and Kinda loudly says okay. Well we're trying to find you financing but who is clear gear? And why do you owe them thirty five hundred dollars and both of us just face palm? Yeah because of this whole thing with clear gear. John now had this like black mark on his credit report. We fast forward to October of that next year. Our hot water heater died on us. We use our savings to get that repaired. Three days later our furnace goes out. It's going to cost them thousands of dollars to get a new furnace and they just don't have it on hint. We tried get emergency financing every company. I tried to go through turned us down so finally I am at my wit's end it's October in Utah. My House has no furnace. I have a three year old and thinking to myself. Oh my God we're going to end up with a frozen house and CPS is GonNa come and take my child away. Because I can't keep the heat on because of this stupid mark on John Credit and there's nothing we can do so finally I mean I I am almost crying. I'm a I'm at work and have no idea what to do. Their case was too small for the FBI too strange for the local police but luckily there's a certain kind of person who is perfect for helping people just like Gen. My boss comes up to me and says well why don't you give KTV's Matt Gephardt a call. There's one in Utah. Who Arms You with the information? You need to protect yourself. Get help get inches. Get Gephardt five nights a week on two news at ten so I called up get Gephardt and I left them of really long message and explained to them the entire story and the more. I'm speaking the the more I'm just realizing how utterly ridiculous all of this sounds. I mean you cannot make this up. You're leaving a voice mail. Yeah I think I had caught them like off hours or something I think it was the next day I get a call from from Matt. Gephardt of Gephardt. Yes he calls me back and says I believe you and I WANNA help. And all of a sudden I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. It you get horrible. Customer Service MMA company. You will likely tell people about that. I get this company is ordering Elaine coupled obey thousands all because they don't like the review they posted up here on a Tuesday three days later the story has gone viral and by viral. I mean England and France and Australia and China and Canada and in the middle of all this John and Jen get a call from a lawyer named Scott Michelman at a nonprofit called public citizen. He said he wanted to take their case and agreed to do it. Pro Bono. The lawyer Got John's credit report fixed. And he sued clear gear in federal court. We show up to court. And he's got his fancy lawyer formulas that they do to to calculate things like real damages versus pain and suffering and all of that basically how much is he gonNA ask for three hundred seven thousand dollars so we got to court and of course clear doesn't show up and so it's just you guys in the judge hanging out pretty much it's I mean the judge still sat and heard our story. We still gave our testimony laid out. You know all the damages and as the judges hearing all of this he decides. He's like you know what I've heard enough. I don't need to take under advisement. I'm GonNa give you everything you're asking for. And the lawyer's fees on top of it and I remember sitting at the table and kind of like whispering. Did he do what I think he just did? The lawyers just shut up. Shut up shut up and you know. And he went ahead and gave us the judgment right then and there But even with this huge number that neither of US could of ever dreamed of. We knew we were never going to see a dime of it. You couldn't even get him on the phone. How you'RE GONNA get three hundred seven thousand dollars plus lawyer that exact ex exactly but this was a significant enough number to at least deter anybody else from attempting the same thing on somebody
