A highlight from What a Weird Week Show: Ten Tens! Friday Aug 25th 2023 Revisiting Ten Number Tens from this Season
"It's the what a weird week show 10 10s revisiting 10 number 10s from the season Friday, August 25th, 2023. Hi, everybody, it's weird. This is like crazy, really weird. Well, I got a great show for you today with some wonderful stuff. You guys, this is what a weird week. A show that is a weekly look at weird stuff from the news. This is season four, episode 48, first published on Friday, August 25th, 2023. And it's 10 10s revisiting a bunch of number 10 entries from earlier this year. Let's find out if they stand the test of time. I mean, maybe the show is irrelevant. Maybe these stories don't even stand the test of time. Let's find out. 10. All right. At number 10 from Friday, January 13th, we let off that show with another weird world record. Elon Musk's newest world record for losing more money than anyone ever has. A legit world record from the Guinness World Records, folks. According to Forbes magazine, Elon Musk has lost around 182 billion. That was that time of recording January of 2023. The old world record was only 58 billion. That person feels pretty good about themselves now, where Elon has lost 182 billion. Let's see how this story holds up. First of all, you might recall the money talk and the money losing talk all started to occur after Elon announced he was buying Twitter. Does this story hold up? Elon is still wealthy. Twitter is no longer a thing now. Well, it's X. And I just read an article where Elon says X might. I mean, I'm paraphrasing a bit, but it may not succeed. So I'm going to give this story a B minus for holding up for hold up to toothed 10. I'm excited. I know this one already holds up. This is number 10 from January 20th. Chocolate is great, according to science. Scientists from the University of Leeds were looking into why chocolate is delicious. That is me paraphrasing. But the research indicates that it all comes down to lubrication science. How chocolate coats our tongue seems to be an important aspect to its deliciousness. I didn't at the time when we recorded that episode, I didn't know what lubrication scientists were doing exactly. I thought it was mostly some of them work for NASA, but I thought it was mostly, you know, in the adult industry. It turns out some of these scientists are putting their Ph .D .s to good use, figuring out why chocolate is delicious. That story, A plus still holds up.

"forbes magazine" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"For the loyal listeners of our program, you've heard me mention ERC, the employee retention credit. You've heard me mention it a couple times. And I've been blown away by the news that we have received of how many of you have been able to successfully get credits from the federal government. And look, I'm very clear. I wish Congress never would have appropriated this money. But it's there. And I'd rather have you get it than Ukraine and all of you need to look into it to research it. And as you know, you could do that at COVID tax relief federal. I was so blown away by the numbers. So enthusiastic about how many of you have been helped by it, wanted to have Jason from COVID tax relief dot org, join us and help break the news Jason, welcome to the program. It's good to see you. Thanks, Jason. So Jason, how many Charlie Kirk show listeners have participated in this program via your company and how much money have you successfully been able to recover? It continues to blow my mind as well. And at the numbers as of this morning, just from the last time you had us come on here Charlie over 200 business owners and over $24 million has been claimed and paid out through the ERC just to your listener. So that's exciting. That's amazing. So Jason, give our audience a little picture of who are these people? They're small business owners. They're plumbers, they're electricians. Who are the type of people that are mainly calling you and asking for help? Well, and that's actually what I love about the employee retention credit. It's not just a handout to anyone out there that owns a business. It's only going to those business owners that retained their W two employees during the pandemic during 2020 and 2021. And so it's a true win for business owners. This is, by the way, this is the last COVID stimulus money available to business owners. And look, I like how you put it. Whether you agree or not with the cares act, it's already been allocated. It's there. It's out there. So take it, right? If you retain your employees, look at it as a reward for giving those people a place to work during a tough time.
Shelby County to Study Reparations to Descendants of Slaves
"County, commissioners are expected to vote this afternoon to spend $5 million of your tax money. And by the way, you folks in bartlesville Oklahoma, this is your money we're talking about. Salem Oregon, this is your money, we're about to spend. They're going to spend $5 million to study the feasibility of a reparation plan specifically for and solely for black citizens. In Shelby county, Tennessee, which is the Memphis area. County commissioner Edmund Ford junior telling Forbes magazine. That this is a process of community reparations that provides an ecosystem to intentionally track and promote black wealth while providing access to assets and infrastructure. So this is one of these things where folks you watch what's going to happen here, they're going to be taking money from a hardworking citizen and they're going to be giving it to somebody else. Simple to because of the color of their skin. By the way, you want to know where they're getting the money. This is what's fascinating. This is what's fascinating. About this $5 billion check in. This is why it's your money. This is federal money we're talking about. They're using money they got from the China virus. These are federal China virus funds. You say, well, wait a second, Todd, how could they, how could they use that money when it was supposed to be for the China virus pandemic? That is a great question. And let me explain how they're able to do it. Because the county commission has declared that racism is a pandemic. Now I'm not making this up. So they're saying since racism is a pandemic, they can use the money that was set aside for the China virus pandemic, and they can start this process of sending us down a very dangerous and divisive road to reparations.

"forbes magazine" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Brian likes LA, brawny likes Bill a Savannah likes LA. Everybody loves LA in the James family and they're doing so many things outside of basketball. You know, if you checked out Forbes magazine today, LeBron's an official billionaire. And he's making his money in media, big time. He's not going anywhere. So who do, you know, because they're going to have to talk to him, darvin ham is going to talk to him. Who can we bring to how who can we get on the Lakers if we're going to go big time that LeBron first of all is going to sign off on, even though it's like, hey, you signed off on Russ instead of instead of demar Derozan. So I have to check him as well. Who are we? Who is worth that pick? And I'm not even saying, you know, and I'm not telling you to go lightly on that. It has to be somebody who were just everybody sitting around going, okay? This could possibly work. Really quickly. LeBron wanted to Marta Rosen, but you would have hard capped yourself, which is why the demar Derozan thing did not happen. You would have heard captain roster. He would have been stuck with like 6 players. Well, that's definitely part of part of the decision making process in terms of not going with the Rosen. But again, if you could figure out a way to make that work, that's certainly would have been would have been preferable, but again, there were some drawbacks to demar Derozan that we talked about a ton last off season. But Doc, good point. Appreciate you for coming on here. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. All right, let me go, let me go, Sean. Let me go to you with this because you've done some work here looking at what darvin ham could potentially be bringing offensively, you know, we just got into a chat here about Anthony Davis. Do you move on from him? Do you trade him? How integral to darvin ham's offense? So what we think he's going to bring to LA is Anthony Davis. Can we see darvin Hamm get a better version out of AD on the offensive end of the floor than what we saw last.

They would never live that down, but for Democrats and it's perfectly normal and then when it happens and people are assaulted and People are confirmed people.

That i went through that with them and then wound up working for them in managing that platform so it was one of those things that they they killed the product in two thousand five so but now such as things how they go and one of the reasons that they killed is that they. They didn't work with the smaller content providers at that time they only wanted to work with the big guy kept encouraging him to expand the catalog and to get more content in there and then add it to the mobile mobile platform that they were building and they didn't wind up doing it until years later when the zun was created..

Unfortunately, they Yeah, the texture didn't And identify themselves that show their name, but But it Z exactly my point when you when you are looking out where, whether it's out of rage, anger or a philosophy that says you are by force going tol up and other people's lives. You're gonna you're gonna up in a society. Tradition, a constitution a system of justice as system of economics, a system of free enterprise. You gonna upend all of that and impose your will on somebody else. That is absolutely contrary to the findings in this Forbes survey. Look to to achieve the things that will ultimately bring you satisfaction internally, And I think that is just absolutely on point. And it serves as a a guide. I think a bit of a road map for people who are Good and decent people looking for something that will improve life for them and those around them. Those the lives of people who matter to them can can also reap the benefit of that. And certainly their dependence. Their errors can benefit from that. But conversely, as you look to people who want to impose their will on others, in some cases by force and intimidation.

I think it's worth a read. If you get a chance, check it out. It's in yesterday's addition of Forbes magazine.

Because their times in this you curve that they imagine that that you lose some of the potential to really truly chart your own. Course you're you have greater restrictions placed on you by outside forces. And S. O that generally tends to go against the overall conclusion that this provides, but it really it is.

None of that somebody else is does not have the ability to bring you down because you have the ability to do what's necessary to overcome that and put yourself on a much much, much better position a better footing.

"Ch- now it's time for show me the money our business segment with body politic contributor ruth of forbes magazine in this episode i asked to recap the year that black women had financially and offer some advice on how they can improve their financial situation in twenty twenty one and beyond welcome ruth happy to be so. We are going to talk about what makes us stronger. How black women and all women of color can plan for the future but we have to start with a bit of pain which is what happened financially to women of color in two thousand twenty. Black women have certainly experienced losses this year. For starters having a job that provides a steady income is a precursor to attain financial security especially for black women who generally don't have a family inheritance as that monetary buttress unfortunately job losses during the coronavirus downturn have fallen hardest on black people in much of that is driven by black woman in so when jobs are scarce they're obviously unable to bring in income or to access employer sponsored retirement plans and so they really have to be creative in seek out other options and side hustles also among black women. We're seeing this troublesome failure if you will to invest in stocks because they're viewed as a riskier option. However what we've seen is that this inaction be in stock market trading up for those who have the means to do so is one of the reasons for the lack of wealth among african american woman. And while it's more high risk to invest in stocks blackman's reluctance to do so means that they're really short changing them cells in yield less of a return in the long term during the pandemic specifically it also means that they missed out on stocks especially tech stocks on wall. Street soared to record highs. You know i'm one of these people who has a retirement account. But i was someone who in the past dipped into that paid a heavy tax burden and penalty on it and i understand a lot of people who have retirement accounts and not. Everyone does who have been hit by. The financial impact of the pandemic are thinking about taking out that money. Why is that so complicated. It's quite complicated especially if you're dipping into your 401k or traditional roth ira account because first of all your use subject to income taxes and there's the ten percent penalty on the amount you what's draw. It's a little less problematic. The older you are because that money has had time to compound especially if you have diversified stocks. If you're someone who's younger financial experts will often tell you to exhaust all other needs if you can find a freelance work. Do that. If there's an entry level job that you can take your retirement savings. Are there to do exactly that. They're meant to be a safety net in a financial cushion when you do reach retirement age around sixty sixty five for some people investing in the stock market at a very specific level. Like i want this stock. This stock this stock seems totally normal for other people including me. I wouldn't really know where to start. So what are the options for having an index or having someone else take a look at the market. Yes so there are things you can do here. If you're someone who's complete new beginner to you in end. I often say check out. Some of these smaller apps like acorn or hood can buy shares of a company. You can put in thirty dollars a into our mutual funds. Those are just some small ways to really get your feet weld in against to build up. That financial accumulates you begin to invest more and more in stocks again. The younger you are the earlier that you want to get into this game. Because it does compound that interests compounds can be worth quite a bit when you're forty years old when you're fifty years old beach out to have financial advisor that's one key mistake. That black woman often make is that they're not reaching out to someone who again has a financial knowledge a quick google search will lead you to a number of free resources and educational programs for those who are feeling you to the invest in game. So let's get to be impending new year. So what's your personal financial advice for the your head this year in particular has taught us the importance of having an emergency fund especially for health care needs so the rule of thumb is to put away at least three to six months worth of expenses. Also make sure to a budget budget. Budget let leslie especially if you're a business owner or a freelancer. We're gonna space where you have to be really entrepreneurial along those same lines look for cost cutting measures if you and the beauty of this pandemic one of the few silver linings is that many of us are able to work from home in so this remote work has allowed many of us myself included to be able to move back in with our parents so we don't have to pay for rent or to where the cost of living is low. So make sure that you're taken advantage of unity such as this one and finally and perhaps most importantly for black women make sure that you're living within your means and as we know once you're it takes in very very long time to dig yourself out And get back into a healthy financial position. Ruth words to the wise and some of these lessons. I had to learn the hard way. Hopefully some of the folks listening. Don't thanks a lot ruth. Thank you for having me ruth.

Julie i am. The show's executive producer. And the one thing. I wanna take from twenty twenty into twenty twenty. One is my awareness. That i need to slow down.

Dr. Chris Winter On Why Your Sleep is Broken and How to Fix It
"Chris. It's great to have you on entangled today. thanks so much for being here. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. I want to start by asking you this question as a neurologist. How did you originally become so interested in sleep and the problems that we all have with sleep. The short answer is is all very accidental. But this is something kind of intoxicating about sleep. It's very easy to have fun with well. It's funny. I mean it's good news bad news right because people love to talk about sleep because we have so many challenges with it if it were simple hey spleen split big can take it out if you do. This is not even necessary exactly but you can't like not sleep. Let's talk about that. That's an important sentence right there. You just said yeah. And i mean i personally have had sleep problems forever so i'm super excited about getting some of this information. I did love your book. Although i'm still not sleeping perfectly but i'm still not doing i'm supposed to be doing so that's air. Why does so many of us have sleep challenges to begin with. There's a couple of answers that one is. I think that for the first time we have generations. Now that are looking at sleep as a modifiable. Variable and not a trait okay. You're going to have to say more about that. What does that mean by that. Is i think that probably in the past if you slept poorly just kinda slept poorly. Didn't really think much of it and now with the idea. That sleep is its own science. There's all kinds of things you can do can alter the lighting you can do a sleep study to determine if there's something wrong with your sleep versus there's nothing i can do about the fact that i'm short of sort of big years and i've green is like those things are traits. I can't fix those. I don't know maybe a hundred years from now they won't be and you can choose your own hide. You can easily genetically altered your colored. This has now come into this idea. That sleep is a science not just sort of a casual observation. I also think there's a lot more out there. That is impacting our sleep. Where twenty four hour culture now. We're always awake where shift were culture. We can eat whenever we went to. We can watch. Game of thrones starting right now until sometime at the end of next week one episode after another of these. Were not things that we had. The cell phone is a huge issue with us right now. Our access to information and all these things were not a problem in the past. It was sort of boring to stay up all night. And you're living in a cabin. That had a whale fat lantern and papas fiddle on the wall. Like that was it. It was nothing to really do. And you work really hard all day while you had sunlight so there were things are naturally regulated our sleep a lot better than we have right now not mention the chemicals we put in our body cetera et cetera. So i think a lot of excitement about technology and moving into the future. But there's also some drawbacks particularly when it comes to a biological organism. The probably wasn't meant to do a lot of things doing right. Now when you talk about. Binge watching game of thrones or cell phones. Do you think that these. Let's call it addiction. Or even the lure of these entertainments options are these causing more insomnia in our culture right now. Or how do you see that connection. I think it's really important right off the bat define when insomnia is just. We're all very clear. I've got a bunch of slide shows that i've done for people. One of my favorite slides is a series of headlines that have come out of the last few years and they literally go like from forbes magazine and very reputable sources. why forty million. Americans can't sleep and the next one for the new york times. It says fifty million americans can't sleep and here's why we're talking about insomnia. We're not talking about people who can't sleep that doesn't exist. And that's very important thing. Say there are people out there who dissatisfied with their sleep. Have certain drawbacks or obstacles are trying to overcome but nobody out. There can't sleep and it's important because that's what most people associate in their mind with the idea of insomnia on song note that is that's when somebody can't sleep and that's not what insomnia is insomnia. Really is more of an individual who is not sleeping in a way. They want to or at a time they want to. They have gone to bed at eleven o'clock and it's taken them two hours to fall asleep. They woken up at two in the morning and is taking them an hour to get back to sleep so heart one is. You're not sleeping in the way you want to part two. Is you have to have a negative emotional response to it. Meaning if i meet somebody who says takes me two hours to fall. Asleep by next question is always. How do you feel about that. If the individual says auto remind can alight lying in bed away thinking about my day planning out my weekend. Forget what to do my wife or anniversary thinking about my celebrity crush. Your whatever it is. It takes the emotional upset to really create insomnia care so do phones does. Game of thrones create more insomnia probably but it also creates the flip side of insomnia. So when you're looking at the people that we treat clinic we treat. I can't sleep. We also treat. I can't stay awake
Coronavirus Means a Joe Biden Inauguration Could Look Very Different
"Bill Whalen. The Hoover Institution is the host of area 45 the podcast with his colleagues and also The Goodfellows his conversation with three of his colleagues, Mr Cochran, especially observing the economics of the present moment that is the need to get back to the economy at the same time, the need to deal with what appears to be a second wave. Of the virus. So we turned to Bill's most recent column at Forbes magazine entertaining how the presumptive president elect Mr Biden can approach his possibilities these next months. Bill Very good, even to the first suggestion is the most striking to me because it's doable. But at the same time why you want an untraditional indoor inaugural? What will that look like? And why does good evening to you? Good evening. John. Part of this is on being very cautious about the health of the president who's we know will turn 78 in a couple of weeks, and I don't think we would call unnecessarily hardly a robust I think he is sort of frail and fragile if you will, son. Just not sure that being out in the January cold of Washington for a long period of time is a good idea. John. There's the president here. It's usually with second term presidents their re inauguration strong when they take the oath of office inside the White House, sometimes too much from Laura Chemo. I just think that bike might want to consider not doing the pomp and ceremony, the West side of the Capitol for two reasons. One is health. A second one. John is it's called Coben. It's the pandemic. Um it's a very funny thing. If Donald Trump were being read, non dread indeed. Here, the worst spreader affect my God, You can't have 200,000 people on the ball. Think of all the Kobe You won't hear this about the Biden inaugural, but it's a reality putting 200,000 people together. I see a lot of the multi Mary masks. It's a health hazard. So by me, maybe in sending a very strong coded message could say that you know we're going to do things differently. I'll take the open. So the White House We won't have the big grand rally out on the mall that you have. We won't have a parade because times are talking instead of coming to Washington in celebrating and just spending money on your own good fortune to a day of service gives the money to charity and be an interesting way to set the tone person. In other words, no one will never see the light of the sun. But no, no, I I Kel, no ball dancing, right? No. No stepping out visiting all five. As I recall. I remember the Clinton inauguration of 1990 free where Mr Clinton visited all the simultaneous Suarez all over town. It would show up and my memory is that he played the saxophone. That might be wrong. I might have transposed the events. But in any event that is the ceremony to celebrate the new The new administration. And you're recommending that Mr Biden follow the recommendations of science right Bill. That's what a spreader event is and do none of that. And yet Here's the Here's the contradiction these last days in celebrating Mr Biden's victory. His supporters have done spreader events and I do not believe he's chastised him. No, he has the Jonah. That's gonna be the challenge for him in its first two months in office. We want to think that everything is the war is over. Because now as a vaccine that is has 90% effective, but no things go home. We're gonna have another wave of covert here throughout the winter. It's going to be difficult and from one way we know we can contain it released tryingto control a situation is to keep from having a spread offense and the inaugural The festivities. Things we just mentioned. Those are by definition spreader of

Swift's which I do not think is true I took a poll on instagram and sixty six percent of you think that Taylor's masters were definitely or are definitely worth a lot more. West who Forbes this year estimated had become a billionaire could by his masters or rerecord them. which was the same. You know thing that approach Taylor swift with and the adviser said, but Taylor's caused three, hundred million yours would cost a lot more. I assume the adviser also referring to Scooter Bronze Twenty Nine Acquisition of the label big machine records from Scott for Chata. West. Could also propose a yeezy media and universal joint venture that is equal but not one sided but West replied that he is quote not open to any form of business with universal or Sony. So Conway is.

Religious by any means I grew up a Christmas Catholic but I went to Sunday school until I got my first communion. So I know there's like this quote out there somewhere that's like I'm your God in new shot have any other gods besides me in a very loose translation, but with Connie being so religious as he claims. It just totally contradicts himself and what he believes and it makes me just really uncomfortable. The whole Sunday service thing is starting to look much more like a call like it was really cute at first but now it's just looking kind of creepy. The whole yeezy brand is very like Orwellian to me and That makes me uneasy when he walked on water at a Sunday service, it wasn't cool it which is weird and they feel like all of these antics like if of these antics came from anybody else. They would be much more called out on it. But because it's conway. And he's just surrounded by so many like, yes people he's not getting really caught out on it people just like ha-had Connie being crazy again, Kanye Saha. Typical and I'm just getting to the point where I'm just very uncomfortable. I. Don't like I really don't support it and listen at the end of the day I hope that he can find help that he means but this is all starting to be a bit too much for me. I I can't I. Don't know how much more Kim is going to last with all of this. I imagine that Kris Jenner is absolutely horrified like they can't keep making excuses for his behavior or acting like everything is okay. Hey they either need to distance distance themselves from him or like diving completely and acknowledged that he is sick like more than just like a statement like actively. Be An advocate for him as opposed to just being quiet and like sweeping things under the rug. Family matter but it's like you have to pick a side. You just have to especially with the platform that you have. You just need to make a decision but again, that's just my opinion. and. You know in the words of Taylor Swift, you just need to come down. I think his value is going to keep going down with literally everything that he does.

Joe Mass I read this and I go well, I appreciate what they're saying you come off a big win but don't just show up the next day going. Hey. Yeah. So since I'm pretty frigging awesome should we talk about a contract extension? You know? I you know I don't like that. So I, do want to put a caveat out there that. Yes. You come off a big win and there's some high value. But don't go in right away with the old raise talk now I'm GonNa tell you how I would approach all this. I WANNA run through the five things and then tell you how are you number two your department is doing particularly well. So your team's winning that's great number three. Your company is really killing it. They're flush with cash number four, you got another offer and number five year role is in high demand. Okay now, these are all good things for you. To reference. But some of you if you're not careful, you'll take this information. Okay. Hey, listen. Start Marina go talk race and I don't ever like talking raise what I like talking is performance measures and when you and your leader can get clear on your current performance. Your past performance and what a future performance win will be. And you got to out of the three and then you go. Hey. Man, things are going well and and I'm loving this and I want to keep winning for the company. Because all these essentially lead this conversation. And what you? WanNa references look I want to keep winning. And a part of that winning is obviously more responsibility. and. With that responsibility and success more compensation. That's not a silly thing. That's not an aberration Asana crazy ask but you couch it with hey. We're doing well. Or I just came off this. These are just momentum's essentially these are momentum moments and they're saying capitalize on. Yeah. But you've got to do it the right way. Because you don't want to look greedy you're gonNA. Look prideful. You don't WanNa look. Ungrateful. All the things. So by tying it to a performance plan. Hey.

It's a great way star. Okay. Yeah. Sure. Sure. Well. Can we be specific about what those are and what they what does need to be? Can we measure that growth? So a if I'm taking a course will then I've got to successfully complete the course and show the evidence of that. If it's I'm GonNa give you more responsibilities you gotta say great. So, what is a win look like in these added responsibilities and how do we measure success so that we see growth and actual results. And then. If I achieve these things. How does that affect my compensation these kind of conversation much better way to come about. This this overall conversation it's not hey, companies flush with cash that staff meeting report said things are great. How `bout above for your boy? Let's not do that. That's. That's going to be received very well I'll give you a bomb. You know they're going to give you a fist fist-bump. Hey, a boy way to go. Yeah.

Feel Stuck In Your Career? Try This.
"Was Reading this article in Forbes magazine and sugar is the writer what to do if you feel stuck while everyone else is moving and I thought this is really timely. Because this pandemic has hit everybody differently but pandemic or not. We're creatures of comparison we just are we wanna fight comparison comparison is a cancer. It's an insidious insidious disease. If you let it take over your life however, the fact is, that's what we do. We have is therefore, we look at other people we go. Well, they're making more progress than than I am. And it makes us feel even more stock than we already are. So anyway, I saw this. This is good. I WanNa see what she's got to say. And it's really good I. think she says I couldn't agree more the key to getting past comparison is to analyze yourself. Measure Yourself. The idea is look at what you're doing. Measure your activity. Don't measure yourself against other people's activity. It's just dangerous. Don't do that. The second thing she says is focus on small wins. When you're stuck, here's what happens. You're already dissatisfied with where you sit. And what happens is as you go gosh, I wanted to be. There and we start to look out we we focus so much on. That far away place that we're not at yet. And it makes us feel even more insignificant as opposed to going. I'm stuck I'm not making the progress that I want to let me just go get some easy win some easy momentum. So focus on smaller task smaller winds so that you you feed off of that the endorphins of accomplishment. and. Then the third thing is is make sure you're helping others. You know when you can get outside of your own frustrations, your own situation. And help somebody else improve their situation I'm telling you right now it's like a wonder drug. It's a wonder drug to getting emotionally healthier. So great great article there. Those are three things that you can do and do every day and it will make a difference before you know it won't be focused on how stuck your you'll be focused on all the momentum you're beginning to experience.

Here's What To Do About Your Student Loans Due To Coronavirus
"There are so many people who have been just crushed by what corona virus has done to the economy. And you're sitting there with student loans. The big problem has been with private student loans because most federal loans are in a payment an interest holiday through September but private loans. There's no such protection and people have been just eaten up by what's going on with private loans because the lenders will destroy you. I mean they will eat you up. They are able to Ruin your credit. They're able to garnish. Your checking account or your wages very easily. And it's very difficult for you in a situation where you're flat out broke even file for bankruptcy although I have something about that for you in a minute. So a number of states have gotten together and organized temporary relief to student loan borrowers and private loans. And I'm expecting more states to join the Compact the States or California Collorado Connecticut Illinois Massachusetts New Jersey for Mont Virginia Washington. That is the current list that was put together by Forbes magazine and what they've done is the states have used their strength to then negotiate temporary protection for borrowers with all the major student. Loan Lenders somewhere around twenty of them that account for most private student loans in the United States. And what they are doing is you are not going to be reported to credit bureaus and those states if you contact your lender and tell them you can't pay your allowed to suspend your payments for three months. There will be no late fees. They will not report you as delinquent with the credit bureaus and they will not move forward with any debt collection lawsuit against you so remember. This is temporary only the state of Massachusetts has passed a statute to protect private student. Loan borrowers but this is an agreement that these states banding together have been able to reach with the overwhelming number of private student. Loan Lenders so what do you do? If you don't live in one of the states that have reached the this agreement with lenders. Call your find out who your legislators state senator or state representative and talk to him or her about the problems. You're facing with private student loans. Tell them about

Why Strategic Planning Is Important For Small Business
"So yeah topic today. Title Net flicks worst nightmare. What's the worst nightmare eh? We've talked about this a lot but maybe we haven't talked about it on air. I don't think specifically so obviously when we were putting the information together You know we talked to one F lakes and article in Forbes magazine by Stephen McBride and one of the things that says which will then pull from today is that the net flicks in the last decade. Their stock has risen to about eighty. Five hundred percent has risen by eighty-five hundred percent. That's not because streaming ozzy caught fire. I mean streaming is like first of all the word streaming was invented. Because of what Netflix does I know like no one used the word really like streaming in relation to viewing things until Netflix really came along and now it's like streaming as his own category which is impressive. Whenever you can create its things Hastings Reed Hastings Ya Hastings company that like the smart brands words words right Amex? Yeah exactly. It's like netflixing. Chill not exactly that one. Maybe actually. That's he can miss his better thing. Big You're like old married couples. That's what they say will take Shade Mahar in the tender tender account. I don't F- looks to me Netflix. And Chill and has put Netflix ongoing asleep so because the different indices sold as me. That's the that's what I do. They netflixing watch Netflix. Watch me so anyway. So net flicks achieved those gains. How do they do it? They literally disrupted video rental the whole industry. They stole millions of customers. Oh no not even just a video rental like they they were beyond that streaming actually took away customers from the large cable companies. Millions of cable companies loss customers at the hands of readings Netflix. God I'd love to be able to drop Kale. I know I have a way to watch sports without having in cable. 'cause that's literally. The only thing tying cable Youtube Youtube Youtube. TV Okay Forty nine ninety nine a month all regions force not end more mass. Let's check that. I have it now but accidents because I still have direct TV. Once they cancelled DIRECTTV next year. I'm GONNA switch completely over to Youtube. TV sweet actually be free. Leave so so Netflix. Still literally tens of millions of customers from cable companies because so much content yet you know I can literally don't I can't even tell you what channels are what on cable. All I know is that you'd have to hit five hundred to get into like your hd but after that. Ah I'm just hitting like the page until I fall. Oh there we go. That's what I WANNA watch. I can't tell you anything but you WANNA know what's on Netflix. I know all you know what I mean like. I'm always always watching documentaries. And movies and everything so yeah I completely feel that way. It's funny because articles here says says that Last year half of Americans a twenty to forty five didn't even watch a second of cable TV. That's crazy isn't nuts. Wow that's true disruption. But here's the problem. oftentimes when there's a a good idea invented where comes out disrupts the whole marketplace replace what happens competition. Man are the big boys get into the they see going on they get they own honestly that Pie. So that's what's happening right now. Man Disney plus who you name it right there all stripping away so my net flicks is Grip tight grip on this on the street. And there's more coming. Yeah like because all licenses that netflix expiring or not renewing because those major are those major television and film houses are taking the licenses back in creating their own streaming service. You know that's crazy. Yep so the point of this. Is that Netflix. Says worst nightmare would be that what they did the cable. Obviously it's going to happen to them. Yeah we'll be done to them. Do you think that people would cancel their netflix memberships. Though like cable 'cause I see it as a way where people just reduce their netflix subscription. More so than. Cancel it because Netflix still has like so much offer. Yeah that's a good question so we extrap- extrapolating out. I'm looking at it that we would have to reduce it because they still put out some good stuff. They have netflix originals. That some some of them are actually really good now some of the NFL. So I think it's just what I've talked to house of cards. Yeah this is why I've talked about affair with you that I still feel the same as that A little bit off topic but I think me personally for the end consumer. It's a disservice to them. Because you know in a world where everybody is like I you said I'd love to get off the cable. Save some money when you really start to do the math. It's like I think. NBC's starting to get their own thing. Soon we're just reading in in this article. Eighteen tease looking to start their own already. Disney plus we already know Hulu and some of these other ones when you break down all the different subscriptions that you're paying for. It's like Mike expresses went up not down exactly. So how much is Netflix is. Net flicks is fifteen. ninety-nine that's how much I pay and then Disney pluses twelve ninety nine. It's all ready twenty nine dollars here and then Hulu Hulu Netflix and ESPN. But then like let's say you get get what's the other one Like NBC. What if they come on you know what I mean because they have the office and they have friends? It's in frazier and I think those are like the top things that are watched on Netflix. And I love Frazier Frazier okay. Oh don't forget the apple apple plus came out to Oh did it yes apple pluses apples streaming service. And that's like four ninety nine one hundred dollars for cable or three hundred for seriously seriously. But you know what's GonNa Happen is that it's just going to be things that people watching cancel. There's going to be this. Subscription does monthly subscription service. This is going to turn into people turning on and turning off being hop skip like I just already heard of people doing that with the mandatory now that it stopped just cancel their Disney subscription. And they'll come back and they'll come. I'm back and so what happens. Disney just lose revenue because people are leaving and coming back. That's not the kind of when you have a scripture over. She won't be able to be subscribed for life like you don't want cycles of three month customers and then come back this and that it's just like you know you know. They really is a paid. But the reason why we bring this up in the entrepreneur. Life is because as is entrepreneurs. This is going to happen. Competitions part of business is you know especially even if you have something that disrupts the market as much much is a net flicks people come in Nelson and got this really great idea. No one else is doing it. There's no competition and they could be right there. There may not be any competition. But you can't assume that it will always be that way if it's that good of an idea and you have a hold on the market share. Some point people are going to be like wait a minute. They're gonNA wake up and be like oh we gotta do. Is You know you look at Netflix. Netflix is paying Disney And NBC and some of these other companies. A little bit to be able to have those shows on Netflix. So now they're looking like dead. Their stocks rose eighty five hundred eighty five hundred percent percent eight thousand five hundred percent yet whether I want some of that. Yup Well I guess the other thing too is I the reason why we put with is in. There is because it's like like you said like this is going to happen as a small business owner and I don't think I think the wrong I think to wrong reactions to to competition so I'll I'll start off with my own example. Is that when I moved to the city block them on in open a facility disability down there in downtown Boston five years ago when I first open I had four competitors today I have twelve. Which kind of tells you the state of number one the industry that a man number two tells you that there's no market research done uh-huh in some areas but then the other thing too is like it tells you that you know like there's going to be competition and you know you're competing for the same dollar if you think you're competing for the same dollar? You're you're mistaken you're competing for fifty cents and you had to. You GotTa just be careful if you want to compete for the whole dollar then you have to outperform everybody to get that dollar like significantly. You don't have to be a one stop shop but your value has to be tremendously high. You create value. We've talked about it a million a million times and we had a podcast the segment about creating value. How to do so? Go back and listen to that. I think is episode thirty three. Yeah and that's what they're going to have to do here. So what right. So that's the thing is like okay so that so so I was just giving you. The example of how market competition using my example can come into play. And I'm sure for you. I mean I I went went from four to twelve inches my block but for you. I'm sure even bigger than that. You're you're industry. Because you have comp- you have to deal with both companies and individuals
