35 Burst results for "Forty Dollars"
Tactical Tuesday: Hands From Greatness Village
"Let's start out by breaking down this hand. Thomas played in a live poker streets. So this had it's at five ten twenty live somewhere in. La starts with a fish in the cutoff opening to sixty dollars. Another fish on the button calling and a very strong pro calling the big blind and thomas completing from the straddle with jat nine diamonds So there's two hundred forty dollars going to flop. The flop has ten seven deuce rainbow The flats checked around. I don't know if you wanna have a brief discussion agenda on on on docking swap and whether You know thomas his hand or or this situation you think warrants dunk so yeah. I don't know that. It warrants donkey. But i would say that the details that i would like to have available or add in would be if there's any sort of indication from either of the fish that they've kind of just mentally given up the hand i think if there's some sort of live read that you can cobble together to influence your decision here than i would prefer if say one of those players is it has already mentally checked out. I think that's pretty reasonable spot to dunk there. And then there's gonna be lots of like over cards. I think the fish and position or going to play their value pretty straight forwardly so we can apply lots of pressure on various run outs. Plus we have position on the pro. So yeah. I think that like i wouldn't mind a dunk. If we know that one of the players has mentally checked out. But barring that if we don't have any information then i'm just going to check long and kind of see what happens. Yeah i mean. I don't i don't play very many multi to begin with It's pretty rare where i even have do that. Just that until like another thing. That i would like to kind of know about or see before deciding whether or not i wanted dunk. Slop is whether there's a diamond on the flop vow would go a long ways towards shifting towards like putting me in the category But we don't know. I'm just gonna assume that there isn't a diamond on the flop because i mean coach. Thomas is the type of person to to definitely to put that in there if there was a diamond but it's ten seventies rainbow vodkas. Checked around turn is an off suit nine and the pro and the big widened butts. One seventy five and to forty again thomas. is jack nine of diamonds. So he turns. I compare now has got shot or excuse me got shot. So now has a pair and got shot on the turn I just solved the mystery by the way. So if the turn is an offshoot nine then it must mean that. We have a diamond on the
Dressing Up Those Summer Salads
"One of the things that i wanted to share with our listeners. Today is this incredible. Balsamic dressing that. I've been using all of my summer. Salads and i love oprah definitely follow her favorite things list and i feel like we need to do a plant strong team favorites list and this would definitely be on there. So can i talk about this product out judgment. Because you're gonna think. I'm out of my mind for the money that i spend on a ball stomach vinegar so i won't wanna do want to know how much you spend on. So nobody would bat an eye for a forty dollar bottle of wine rate and in our household. Don't drink we're not buying the filet mignon or the lobster tails or the fancy specialty cheeses rates. So when we do splurge it's on things like vinegar and this is one of my favorite products. So it's the cuccia in moray balsamic vinegar of modina. It's thirty five to forty dollars a bottle at whole foods which it's expensive. Yes but a little goes a long way. All you need is the finest little drizzle and the reason is so. It's so expensive is because it's really reduced. They're more grapes in this than there is in the average Balsamic vinegar and as you can see. I'm kinda like singing. Around with maple syrup super syrupy. I mean you know it's sticking to the side of the bottle and it's absolutely delicious so this is also one of my favorite gift ideas. If there's somebody living plant shung diet living the plant strong lifestyle eating whole food. Plant based maybe. I don't want to bring them some chocolates. Maybe i don't wanna bring them some wine. I'll bring them really nice bottle of
How to Price Your Product Service or Offer for Profit
"So let's talk about pricing. This is one of the areas that so many entrepreneurs struggle with i know i myself did the first story i want to share with. You is when. I came to southern california and i decided i wanted to be a personal trainer. What i did was ask around to figure out what everyone else was charging. An i determined what my price would be based on going lower than everybody else not the best pricing strategy and. I'll just tell you. Transparently that. The reason why i did that is because i didn't value what it was. I had to offer a classic case of imposter syndrome now. I was a very confident individual. I was even confident in my own knowledge and ability. But when i thought of other people who did the same thing that i was doing i thought about how much more experienced they were. I thought about how much more well known they were. And that made me feel like. I didn't belong there and that i didn't deserve to charge the same rate that some of my competitors charging so i charged forty dollars an hour when i knew there are other trainers charging a minimum of sixty five dollars an hour. Today i pay my own personal trainer. One hundred eighty five dollars an hour and there are still trainers out. There charging forty dollars an hour and here. We are twenty years later. I would bet that there are trainers out there. Maybe even trainers listening to this episode right now who are charging forty fifty sixty dollars an hour and they're far more knowledgeable and perhaps even more experienced than the trainers who were charging hundred seventy five two hundred dollars five hundred dollars an hour and if that higher priced trainer has a full schedule they also are enjoying a lot more freedom

"We'll just jump right into it then a and that actually. This had got reviewed poker power on wednesday and there are a lot of Differing opinions. On what i should what people thought i should be doing So go flip it back to you and see what what you have to say. Hand starts with me opening the cutoff at five. Ted nolan that with pocket. Jacks the button only have two hands on him but appears to be fish. Flat the button and the big blinds. Who i'm guessing as a also don't have too many hands on him also calls we go to a nine four deuce two-tone flop the big blind checks off again. I pocket i check. I'm going to be checking range. Multi way Especially on a board. Like this. I think and then the fish on the button. That's forty dollars in to seventy to fifty the reagan the big blind raises to one hundred and ten dollars and i was pretty lost what to do facing the check. Raise with an repair multi. Yes so when we were looking at this hand before in the run through. I think that in game you were not clear as to whether or not the button was a fish because they do have mostly full stack. My intuition told me kinda straight away before you even described anything about the hand that the button was a fish because they had nine eighty in their stack. The blinds go through. That would be ninety nine hundred five. I got the feeling that they were fish. But then when they bet forty into seventy two on the flop. I think that kind of confirms that there a weaker player in the pool. Because i don't think that's sizing should like be thing. Whatever it is that they. I don't even know. What percentage that is that they chose to bet they're a little bit more than fifty percent so yeah like basically the button who is a fish. That's about sixty percent and the big line to looks to be a rag and intuitively. I would imagine they are oreg check raises less than three x here here than the actions back on us with our jackson. Nine four two hearts so my first inclination here is to bet three bet or not bad three bed. Check three bet. And that's for a few reasons number one. The buttons forty dollar bet because that designates them a fish. I have to imagine that the big blind wants to raise choose a larger sizing with their sets and their value. So that kind of small check raise from forty to one. Ten makes me believe that like they could be doing this fairly wide. They don't necessarily just have to have like sets or even like a street as five of heart type hands. They could be doing this with like top pair just as protection. They'd be doing this with just whatever they could check raised with like jackson diamonds. Trying to run a multi street bluff. I guess again objective diamonds. We got jack of diamonds. But you see my point right like basically some sort of back doors type type hand and the reason that i want to put more money in the pot now Kind of smallish around two thirty five ish to thirty by my go-to would be like to thirty four. But i can't tell you why secret proprietary information is to thirty four but because i think the check razor doesn't necessarily have sets here all the time like they've got an expanded wider range than that we can check raise against them just fine. I don't wanna flat because we flat that gives the button a great opportunity to call and realize equity getting just an amazing price. I think at that point if we flat. There's like three thirty in the pot. They've got the call seventy two win three thirty so they're getting like close to five to one and our hand does need some kind of

"And we're creating environments that may or may not be beneficial for for new grads new clinicians. Come out in practice. Evidence based medicine right. You know i think it depends on the setting. I think you're right. I think that if It depends on the manager and it depends on the setting. I that in some settings the you know the management has to stay up with the latest literature. Even if it wasn't something may engaged to for example. I was just talking to colleagues. Who are up at the philadelphia hand center and Graduated long before. Ubp but in hand therapy for example the The surgeons are using different approaches. The healing times are different. Because of new materials or new suture approaches or whatever it might be and the ham therapists are really on it. I mean they have a ton of new literature all the time to synthesize and adopt clinical protocols and so from that perspective that environment even though there are a number of an older clinicians may have been. I don't wanna safe or but it's part of the ethos of that environment right and again. That's that external support so because it's emphasized because it's probably part of that team approach where you have the physician. The surgeon the the therapist the hand their best all talking about evidence if the therapist is up on their ep game. They're not gonna feel very much a part of that team. And so i think that in those types of settings the clinicians are are staying up with the literature in fact probably much more than another settings I think though that if you have clinicians of maybe ben and private pediatric practice are lying. Older literature Maybe don't have the resources in terms of funding to to pay for access to articles that are sometimes thirty or forty dollars Then it becomes a lot harder and quite frankly. The evidence based on that is slower than hand therapy You know the evidence in pediatrics is much slower kamau..

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.
How Much Should You Spend on Marketing?
"Marketing. It's money we have to spend to bring in new customers. It's one of the things a lot of entrepreneurs neglect and they wonder why they're not making enough revenue one. Today's episode. i'm gonna give you a simple formula to know how much to spend to acquire customer. And how much and told to spend every single month on marketing a lot. We will go around doing this the wrong way. They kind of just think. I want to acquire customer in the cheapest way possible or i want to acquire as many customers as possible with the least amount of money. No no no okay. I'm going to save a lot of headaches a lot of time and especially money so this is what you're going through. Your first step is need to understand the ltv of your customer. The lifetime value. How much money on average does each customer spend at your business now. You might be using some sort of Data or revenue analytics tool like profit well or burr. Metrics or chart mogul but to keep things simple. If you don't have one of those tools about the way propolis freeze if you want to check them out. They can integrate with your payment processor. but an easy to figure out. The ltv is to kelly all the revenue you've ever made in your business and divide that by the number of customers you've had so the make things simple. Let's just say. I made one hundred thousand dollars in revenue in my business so far and had a hundred customers if i divide that that means my. Ltv per customer is thousand dollars on average. The amount of money i take from each customer in total is a thousand so some customers will spend more. Some customers will spend less but this is on average thousand dollars per customer. Now this could be because some customers are buying more of your stuff or coming back are staying longer. If it's a subscription service or Are buying up upsells. This all is factored in the ltv. It's an average of how much money you make per customer so this number is really important. Your ltv why because now you know how much you make per customer so every time you get a customer on average you're gonna make a thousand dollars from them in the lifetime of customers rating with you so now you know you need to acquire this customer for less money. You have to factor in how much it costs you to get this customer. Not only in terms of you know maybe add dollars of running facebook ads. But if there's somebody that's on your team that's hired to do this marketing person or using service you have to include that cost too but if you're doing it yourself then we're gonna go straight up the cost to acquire this customer so if you spent two thousand dollars to have a booth at a conference and you got four customers out of conference it costs you five hundred dollars each customer. If you're ltv's thousand that's not bad okay. You doubled but tv's three hundred. You lost the money on acquiring that customer. This why you're ltv is so important to know. How much money are you going to get by acquiring this customer so once you know your ltv you know you have this much wiggle room on acquiring that customer now. I like to at least start by spending twenty five percent of my ltv on the customer. Why because i have other expenses of my business. And i want to be able to skill this as much as possible so if my ltv one thousand. I don't want to spend more than two hundred fifty dollars to acquire that customer. Ltv is four hundred dollars. Then you spend more than one hundred dollars obviously the lower the caq. The customer acquisition cost the better. That means you are getting a tremendous amount of upside tremendous value from that customer with very little cost in your into acquire them. So that's a next thing you need to figure out. How much does it cost you to acquire a customer. Not every channel that you try to Market is gonna get you the same cac so you might run facebook ads and let's say for example. It costs you ten dollars per lead to get A lead and you can convert those into customer at a twenty five percent conversion rate. I mean it cost you. Forty dollars to acquire customer on facebook at you might sponsor a podcast and you have a unique link and that unique link tells you how many customers do get and this is why when it comes to something like sponsorships it's good to experiment and see With a few episodes how well it does. You can understand the caq so that you can double or triple down on this medium on this avenue of marketing.

Using Amazon Fulfillment to Grow Your eCommerce Business with Michael Begg
"A lot of people who listen to the show are small business owners. Many are Web savvy perhaps maybe even web developers so they can probably build their own e commerce. I'm guessing using commerce. That's generally popular platform. I mean it's like a quarter of e commerce sites commerce so If they are you know if we have a small business owner who wants to get into kind of selling stuff online Maybe their own products. Maybe not right because you demonstrated that it doesn't necessarily have to be your own products. What are some of the things that they should think about. As far as research goes As far as like researching what products they want to sell or you know just kind of understanding how the amazon platform works. Let's let's go with kind of how the amazon platform works rate We had previous upset about drop shipping talked about kind of researching products. But if you have tips you know that was two years ago now and not talk here and there. I know a lot of things have changed. I mean the amazon platform is pretty straightforward. Obviously the consumer customer side is a lot better build out than the actual seller side. You know there's a lot of pain points on the seller side. There's a lot of people get frustrated with amazon. Just part of the process amazon is bill to serve their customers not their sellers. Which is its own thing But anyway you sign up with a professional account cost about forty dollars a month from there you upload your listings you need to have. Upc bar codes for your products. Need to purchase those from a gs. One those are about ten acts like three hundred dollars so it's not that crazy from there you can list your products on the platform and amazon will pretty much handle the entire fulfilment side of the sales if you want to again. If you don't have your own warehouse you fulfillment team or you don't wanna be packaging hundred dollars a day to go ship out yourself amazon's great for that you know using amazon. Fbi you can send all your inventory right in. They'll distribute it across the country closest to the consumers that are gonna probably repurchasing your products and then as the orders come in. They'll handle the shipping mail. The customer service in any issues on that end so super helpful. If you are small business any don't have the capabilities to really deal with the fulfillment and customer service aspects. Yourself if you do. I mean that's great. You don't need to use fbi also florida's directly from your warehouse but fbi deafening. Get you a little more visibility on the platform definitely helps you stand out more. Get the prime badge which is another very big selling point when consumers are shopping on the platform and bats more or less the basic steward. I mean there's a lot of other a specific niche things that we could talk about. That can help you sell more. But just getting set up on the platform is pretty straightforward and following those processes. You can pretty much do it on yourself on your own. Yeah for sure. So the kind of use cases. I'm thinking through right. Now is maybe we have like a maker who's creating their own stuff Or we have somebody who's may be looking into drop shipping or or Retail arbitrage i. Okay somebody who's selling other people's products and it seems like i if i'm making something i can. I can basically send it to amazon for them to fulfil or i assume if i'm doing some If i'm buying someone else's product in bulk i can have them send it directly to amazon is i. Is that how it goes or do i need to do. I need to me then. Intended to amazon. Yeah i mean most of the time we're going to have it sent to yourself or you're going to be seeing yourself in person and then you're going to be sending it to amazon. That's probably about ninety percent. There are some people that will send it directly amazon for you but it's a little bit more difficult to find. I see it really doesn't matter what size business you are having employees. There's there's so much potential. Here on the platform declined. That was literally a one person operation to start with. It started working with us a couple years ago. She was doing about fifteen twenty thousand dollars a month in sales. And you know two years later. She's doing three hundred and fifty thousand dollars a month in sales and now she's actually being able to build a team i mean she's she's making significant revenue. She has a significant team to help her now. And that's just one example of how quickly you can grow on the platform. You know how much you can scale a business. Just through the amazon sales channel. Yeah that's great until and this is Kind of reason we're talking about. This is because as a freelancer as a small business owner. You worry about when you're one big client says we don't need you anymore right like we wanted. Diversify our income and so Selling through amazon is a good way. Now i suspect of the listeners. Like me Do more kind of digital products. You mentioned that. You started selling books on kindle. I wanna ask you about that in the members only show sure But in general amazon. We're talking mostly about physical products. Here right yeah. For the most part the kindle side is just one piece of amazon there's a royalty based business so you create a digital content. And you're making money forever. I mean books. I published eight years ago or still right review royalties every month. So yeah that's just one way to do it but You know physical product businesses are also pretty easy to build platform in not that challenging to do on. It's not a fulltime job. Do it on your own if you have a few products that you're selling so and that's fantastic because the fulfilment is the hardest part. I don't have room in my house to keep inventory right. I've got two kids now. So i don't know that they're toys r. Where my inventory would be Now now the other part of this is that you your personal path has led you to creating amc advisers and you have you say you're running a remote team of thirty right yes. So let's let's talk about kind of how you built that team and then how you moved to remote right as right now. Listeners can see this. Of course. But i'm looking at you in an office with multiple desk but you're by yourself. I assume because we're recording this in the midst of a pandemic yes that would be a good assumption. Actually kind of a funny process that we went through. I mean it started with Definitely working remotely and then coming into his office and now now we're remote again because of the pandemic. Yeah i mean as a business. We started growing. It was myself into other partners in the agency star way than we were handling a lot of things ourselves. We were able to get to about forty thousand dollars a month and grabbing you with us stanley which was nice. I mean that was like ninety percent margin so that was a nice little payday. Then we realized if we wanted to actually take you beyond this build. Something that had some equity value or or something that could provide an exit in the future We really need to build a business. Not just be doing freelance work again. If you're relying on a lot of clients a couple of big clients that are really bringing in revenue. We kind of were It's there's a lot of risk. Hang your business model that way. Just put it that way so we realized that we had to start scaling. We started using. Birds will assistance in the philippines So that was one aspect of our remote worth team. Obviously there's definitely challenges with that time zone. Being one of the big ones we as an agency. We need to respond to clients quickly. We need to provide good customer service in dealing with time zone. Differences created a lot of issues around that sometimes so we continue to grow and i actually came to guadalajara. Was where my girlfriend. Why i'm still here And as we continue to grow we need more people so we started hiring client facing people remotely in the us and content team people here in mexico so doing graphic design content writing Administrative stuff things like that now actually started hiring client facing people here in mexico as well so it's just been a process of scaling like that. Obviously march twenty twenty hits in that kind of all changes The other pandemic comes in. Now everyone's working remotely in mexico now. We have eighteen people completely remote and it was. It's obviously a big change. I mean i know it affects people differently By we had a great offer community prior to the pandemic it was great like how people we worked with really enjoyed. And now i know a lot of people are missing. Adding that interaction with everyone impervious ended up the same talking through slack for example. But it's one of the challenges that that most companies are facing.

Did Bill Gates Seriously Short TSLA Stock
"Robbed our here and today we're going to be talking about bill gates response to on musk's claims the oregon podcast a couple of weeks. Back that get heard. That bill gates had been shorting stock. We've also got some news on the broader electric vehicle automotive market an interesting response from yvonne on an article from the washington post. And of course. We've gotta talk about tesla stock. It's about wild couple of days. We had the interview yesterday with alex rotter so we didn't get a chance to talk about it. But of course yesterday. Tuesday february twenty. Third tesla dropped to a low of six hundred nineteen dollars per share. That was down more than thirteen percent from the prior. Close then of course. We saw us swift recovery in the market. And from tesla tesla finishing down just two percent yesterday on the biggest volume day that we've seen in over a month and a half with sixty six million shares trading hands yesterday. So i talked about on monday and we briefly talked about yesterday in the interview as well. A lot of this is tied to expectation on interest rates. So yesterday fed chairman. Jerome powell made comments to congress. Indicating the current monetary policy is expected to continue for some time as economic uncertainty remains so not to get too deep into that. We've talked about that. Of course in the past but as far as tussles yesterday certainly was not isolated to tesla. Those sort of concerns were broadly extended to high growth. Stocks tussle obviously falls in that category. And i think the volatility there serves as a nice quarterly reminder that you have to be very very careful with stop losses on a volatile stock like tussle as for today tesla continue to rebound finishing up six point two percent to seven hundred and forty dollars two cents. That compared to the nasdaq up one percent. All right so i up today. I want to continue a conversation that we began a couple of weeks back after yvonne. Musk went on joe. Rogan's podcast for the third time and said that he had heard from people he believes would know that bill gates had shorted tesla. Yvonne brought that up in response to a question from joe rogan on the tesla semi citing that bill gates in a blog. Post a few months back had said that eighteen wheel electric semi is probably would never work so allen's claim here understand. We drawing a lot of attention not the first time something like this has happened between musk and gates last year. He did by his first electric vehicle. The porsche ticon. Which at the time. Maybe it wasn't so clear why he didn't by ordering vehicle up until that point. Well now we might have a better answer for that. But he talked about the decision in an interview with marquez brownlee and it seemed to be a relatively tepid endorsement of electric vehicles gatesville right up ranging anxiety as a problem and elon. Musk responded to that interview. Not necessarily gives purchase of tycoon but those comments in general by saying that quote my conversations with gates have been underwhelming to be honest and so that catches us up to today and then we have launched claiming that he heard gates which tesla now in the last week. We've had both cnbc and bloomberg asked gates directly about that claim. I think gates tone is important these responses so i will play the actual clip. The i wanna hear from andrew. Ross sorkin cnbc asking gates so so you're not sure tesla's stock were clear. Yeah i'm not. I don't talk about my investment. But i think he should be very proud of what he's done. Okay so technically there. He did say yeah. I'm not but it sounded like he was more starting a sentence of saying yeah. I'm not going to talk about my investments not yet. I'm not sure tesla because he interrupts himself and says i don't want to talk about my investments so to me. That's a no comment. Rather than a denial. What's interesting here is his reason saying he doesn't wanna talk about his investments but in the exact same interview. He talks about his investments multiple times. He says quote when i invested in impossible foods or beyond me or quantum scape. I was doing that just to help their own climate. Now it looks like those three will be very successful companies. And so i'll have more money to put into the tough areas a climate like cement and steel and quote. Okay so he says he doesn't want to talk about his investments but then he in response to another question talks about his investments in impossible foods beyond me quantum scape and then how does investments are doing and that i'll have more money to then go on an invest in other stuff. I mean how much more could you talk about your investments. And he uses the first person tense. You're saying i invested. He's asked about bitcoin and he says quote. I don't own bitcoin. I'm not short bitcoin. So i've taken a neutral view and quote so for bitcoin. Perfectly fine to say i'm not short bitcoin. Same question for tesla. oh. I don't want to talk about my investments that we just spent a bunch of time talking about. If you're not going to answer the question at least come up with a better non answer. That doesn't immediately contradict yourself. He has to have known that he'll be asked about that and yet seems completely content guard answer so that was last week if there was any doubt left after that because he did start off. By saying yeah. I'm not before interrupting himself as we said. Here's gates on bloomberg yesterday so we had five days to think about this answering the same question from emily. Chang yuan has in the past claimed you shorted tesla and i wonder if there's any truth to that Well you know i think. Test us on amazed seen company I wish you know own. Been more on the long side. But i it's it's great And you know i have. Lots of relatives won't tassels Helped by for them. So you know nothing. But positive thoughts about tesla role. Okay so if the answer to the cnbc question was a bit of a flood. There was a clear opportunity to just say. Hey i'm not sure. Tesla was jor tesla and again gates passes and he sure doesn't look comfortable to me answering the question. Belief is that it looks pretty clear. That bill gates was short. Tesla who knows if he's still is it'd be surprised but come on. How are you going to be all about climate change and then short the one company that's doing more than any other company on earth to combat it. If you don't think it's a good investment you think it's overvalued you can just not invest in it. No one has any problem with that but too short it push the stock price down. Make it more difficult for tesla to raise capital. That's something else entirely.

Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out.

It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone.

They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does.

I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years.

You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career.

I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network.

And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich.

Thanks a lot. So i think we should keep rolling for a minute. We'll wrap this show up and do you have to tell a story about al. I'm really glad he came on the show. In my first and only time that i've al was i cast in twenty eleven and i was working on my laptop and i was up in the las vegas convention center and i was sitting on the side. Which is a huge building enormous. I'm sitting out and kind of of the way trying to find a quiet place. I get wifi and do some work for pat gradient. Pk lure so. I'm working on it. And i see this guy. Come out the come off the stairs. I see that it's outlander. And i'm like oh man that's that's all inter i wanna go say. Hi and say thank you. And so i get up and start to head that way and i kid you not. It was like a stampede. The ground shook. You know the sky got dark. There's all these people just came from every direction and kind of cut me off and you know it was like okay. you know. These guys are more important than me. These our sponsors. You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy.

"forty dollars" Discussed on Is The Mic Still On
"At least they were fifteen percent because of the pandemic all of doing was just going to get in to make the difference up. Because it's going to obviously go back right with business owner. Obviously it's going to recover the fifteen percent evaluate laws. It's not making money right now. Which is why down. Exactly the best. That's why i believe is obviously is trying to buy any stock on invested into anything like that is one fucked up. Shit happens because it devalues us everything. So what you're saying like you wish you would've thought about how mask would want to stop. Oh one hundred percent acrylic all of that shit because because because sometimes you got to look at the the company that made the products but the same time you have to be smart and think about what things will actually recover. Yes certain things may not be the best. Why i'm kinda with you. I don't know that. Amc is necessarily the greatest thing. Because you don't know if it's going to go regular seemingly meaningless wars you. I'm used to it. I'm not. I'm not used to say like i do it enough to where i can accept in being done to me to put me off on. You sure. it wasn't anything important saying the same thing so basically like with the way. The industry is moving now streaming. And all that like. Hbo coming up these netflix movie. Every week i think people are moving further for the way from actual being in the theaters. This possible may only. It may not recover the four fifteen percent so it may be five or ten. Whatever it is. I got in at the low of the negative fifteen percent so everyone recovers half still make money. I got in last year when test yaw all of these stocks were moving that day. Where are they now right now. Amc closing was like a thirteen dollars. I got him when it was like two or three dollars. And so here's the thing so earlier this year it dropped down to two dollars and ten cents hours bugging so they i test. Y'all and i bought it. I made forty dollars a forty dollars of a small investment. And i kept some because i was in it for the long haul but i wanted to cash out right. The shit dropped a two dollars and ten cents. And i was in. I was in the whole. I was like you know long game. You've got to be patient and something was telling me wife me all the time. You've got to trust intuition. And is really good. And i i should. I should just go in and get more shares at two thousand ten cent but amc have found they were threatening to file for bankruptcy counter to your vote. Both of your points then..
The Yogurt Shop Murders
"Today. We're gonna be talking about another harder incredibly intriguing but again the details in this will be difficult. This is a famous austin case. A four teenage girls found dead in an incinerated yogurt shop. This is the yogurt shop. Murders and december sixth nineteen ninety-one. It was a chilly friday night. In austin texas fifteen year old. Sarah harbison and her thirteen year old friend. Amy eire's or airs again apologies. If i get names wrong. Were at north. Chris mall in downtown austin in nineteen ninety-one they were milling around shopping. Just kind of killing time until sarah's sister jennifer and her friend and coworker allies at thomas. Seventeen with their late shift which would end around eleven pm. jennifer analyzer worked at the. I can't believe it's not yogurt. Shop located in the hillside strip mall blocks away from north cross mall. I can't believe it's yogurt. Is something that i was familiar with but again it's a very it's kind of a heavier. Texas chain founded in nineteen seventy seven. It's a pretty cool job to have. I can imagine as a teenager. You know easy kind of fun. i would also imagine. Sarah was excited that iran ten pm when she went to help jennifer analiza close up that she was. You know getting ready for her weekend. It was friday night. They were all going to to a friend's for sleepover party afterwards. It's it feels like a very. And this i think is what gets me too. It feels like a very like typical nineties. That i would have absolutely been part of and i could see myself in this specific time and place just before midnight austin police department officer troy gay was patrolling the area. He noticed smoke rising up from the strip mall. Gear reported as a fire and firefighters soon arrived on the scene as they were extinguishing the blaze. They saw it wasn't just a fire. It was a murder scene jennifer. Sarah amy elisa were dead. All of the girls were naked bound gagged with their own clothing jennifer. Sarah eliza were found deep in the store and a kind of supply closet clustered into one corner allies. And sarah were stacked on top of each other while jennifer lay close by legs were spread wide open. One body had an ice cream scoop placed on it. They were all shot in the back of the head. Execution style with a twenty two lead bullet. Sarah's hands have been tied behind her with a pair of underwear that she had also been gagged with and she was raped. Jennifer was not bound but her hands behind her back. Elisa have been gagged in her hands were also tied behind her their bodies were burned almost beyond recognition with napkins and other flammable items from around the shop on top of them clearly used to help burn their bodies. They also doused and lighter fluid. The fire was so bad in the room. Austin reporter. Dick ellis recounts the melted. The top rungs of a heavy aluminum ladder in the back of the store. Amy's body was discovered alone in a room closer to the main dining area. She was not as hard as friends but she received second and third degree burns on twenty five to thirty percent of her body. She was found with a sock like cloth around her neck. She had been raped shot similarly to the others but the bullet had missed her brain. She had a second bullet which did go through her brain hitting her cheek and exiting through her jaw based on the patterns in the rooms. Killer may have stacked all four bodies on top of each other but amy had pulled herself off and managed to crawl out to a different part of the store. There was five hundred and forty dollars missing from the store itself. Police also deduced. The two guns had been used to commit the murder suggesting there were multiple killers in the days. After i mean everyone was obviously incredibly upset but of course a lot of cases that we talk about lots of mistakes were made and lots of people were suspects. The police department had over three hundred suspects initially and lots of false confessions right out the gate. The i suspect was a fifteen year old maurice pierce who was caught with a twenty two handgun in north crest mall the same night as the murderers. The same gun used to kill at least one of them. Eight days later he was brought in although he initially promising information after tough questioning detectives decided maurice was trying to get himself out of a gun charge and eliminated him and his three friends that he had implicated. Michael scott roberts springsteen forrest wellborn. All of them were under seventeen. When pierce's gun was tested. The ballistic showed it didn't match the murder weapon. Also fingerprints and hair collected from the crime. Seed didn't match any of the four teens. Eventually the investigators just moved on still austin looked feverishly around for the person or people who could have done such a terrible thing
Google abandons effort to create video games less than 2 years after it was announced
"This is not me piling on but as you can see this will play almost directly off of what we talked about yesterday. Google has announced that it will close to stadia game studios one. La in one in montreal and that stadium ahead. Jade raymond is leaving. This means about one hundred and fifty game developers will be laid off. I believe but what everyone is wondering about is what this means for the stadium. Project overall quoting kukuh cacao began to hear rumblings from sources close to stadium last week that google service was heading for a major change. One games industry source told kentucky that google was cancelling multiple projects. Basically games slated for release beyond a specific twenty twenty one window though they believed games close to release would still come out today. Bring some clarification. Google will continue to operate the stadia gaming service and it's ten dollar monthly stadia pro service but it's unclear how many if any exclusive games will still come the service though. The company has indicated that it can still sign new games and will bring more third party releases to the platform it nevertheless will look to many like a drawdown of the plan to have state run as a bona fide competitor to console platforms. The company plans to begin offering its stadium tech to publishers opening up the possibility for stadia to become the streaming tech for other video game companies. Google stadia operations longtime console. Executive phil harrison will focus on pursuing these new partnerships and quote. So let me attempt to parse that or at least translate it into non gamer laymen talk. Google stadia appear to be getting out of the game. Making business of having in house game studios. The plan apparently is to now focus on offering stadia directly to publishers a other gaming platforms alongside offering stadium wpro to the public. So that kind of makes sense. Because i've said before. Google internally at least i've heard largely. Thanks have stadium as the raison. D'etre for google's entire google cloud initiatives or at least maybe vice versa point as stadium is largely justification for google's continued huge investments in cloud stuff. Even though google cloud projects are significantly behind amazon and microsoft at least as being leaders in this field and remember. Google is in cost cutting mode. It seems like so on the one hand. This actually makes a ton of sense as david. Rettig tweeted quote with stadium. Potentially becoming a back end service. I think this may illuminate. Where cloud gaming is headed.

How Lowriders Were A Protest Against White Supremacy
"The low rider movement was also political as a journalist of the nineteen seventies wrote quote. Low writing culture expresses the refusal of young chicano american to be anglicized. Never been a clear case of the automobile being used as an ethnic statement when mexican-americans drove low riders. They're both claiming their identity. And refusing to become invisible hassled by cops pigeonholed by the media and profiled by the general public. There is often a cost but the reward as it is so often in car culture was freedom. The history of low riding is as old as the history of los angeles car culture itself. If you've been to la or even if you haven't you're probably aware that it's a spread out city of wide boulevards and busy highways. You pretty much need a car to get around. And that's been the case for over a century of the city's history as early as the nineteen twenties. The city had an auto ownership rate of one car for every two point. Two five people compare that to the national average at the time which was one car for every seven people and it's because the tire companies paid to have the public transit yet. They show it in the documentary roger rabbit. It's very enticing to say that there is you know why conspiracy there probably was. There is definitely benefit for certain parties to shut it down but also people also liked having their own cars. So is a mix of things almost as soon as cars got into the hands of angelenos. Enterprising owners dissatisfied with stock sameness of cars like the ford model. A or the chrysler fifty eight quickly got into modifying them and stripping. Wait to create hot rods. Which back in the day were known as hop ups or cow jobs. I'm so glad that word has died out. What is a gal. I've idea let's bring that back. Yeah we got bring back. Dow job algi. That's so funny. My girlfriend said no more gal job. So i get the ones i have running cow job. My girlfriend says i gotta get a real job. Get rid of all my gal jobs. Cow jobs okay. So i found an an inch of blog post on jalopy journal dot com talking about the term gal job and just like hopped up or souped up right how that came from like racehorse giving racehorses like pills pills or drugs to improve their performance gal was also a nickname for like drugs as well So you're gone up your horse. The gow job got it and yeah while the initial focus was on speed some maters quickly became interested in how far they could push the envelope and other ways the great depression of the nineteen thirties was an added incentive for kearns iast to fix up and modify older cars rather than buying the latest and greatest the predominant car culture was creating hot rods. But there's a counterculture developing especially among the mexican american community that was a direct reaction to the dominant mostly white rod. Seen at first it wasn't known as low writing. It was just lowering your car. Also popular was chopping or lowering the roof of the car. Decorating vehicle's exterior with designs and replacing stock interior components with plush luxury substitutes. Still the term low rider hadn't yet been coined in the thirties. The clear predecessor of low rider history in the chicano community was a co style. A slang word that roughly translates to punk or troublemaker. But you goes were known for wearing zoot suits slipping their hair back and duck tales a distinctive pattern of slang and in association with swing in jazz. Music is so cool. I watched like archival footage of and they're just like i wish i could pull that style off. My grandpa had zoot suit back in the day. I wish that you are the same like personality. You had the same job hobbies but you just were every day. I'm like accidentally slamming the coattails of my zoot suit in my impreza. Guys look pretty cool. Still pacheco's weren't necessarily associated with a specific style of automobile wasn't until the fifties that mexican american culture started to really embrace the low rider aesthetic in the nineteen fifties. Many white hot-rodders chose to raise their car turning away from the sleek look that had been popular before the war in the words of chicano artists gabriel gibson. White drivers quote went into hot rods and fast cars. They would raise their cars. These big all motors these big trucks but the raza for the race says now i want to do the opposite on a nice and slow slow and low. The one thousand nine hundred fifty saw the true emergence of low rider culture especially in los angeles in the postwar period. Los angeles was a hub for american auto manufacturing. Second only to detroit with ford chrysler and general motors. All operating assembly plants in the area matching if that was still true. That'd be cool. Yeah bill alice. Ten cities ton is stan. Low rider culture. You have to understand. The history of los angeles and it's mexican population originally founded as a spanish mission to spread catholicism in the seventeen hundreds by the eighteen hundreds it had evolved into a forming and ranching up while the land owners were initially of spanish and mexican descent by the eighteen fifties white americans began to dominate. Los angeles is economy and governments prize surprise. Although mexican americans. And even chinese immigrants outnumbered white americans white angelenos still held most of the political power in the city while the white neighborhoods of los angeles boomed tocado in hispanic populations were increasingly regulated to urban ghettos or barrios especially in the east los angeles area away from the pacific ocean and the downtown core at first these neighborhoods were little more than shantytowns but after world war two the population of l. a. began to explode. The city had one of the largest populations of mexican people living anywhere in the world including mexico. Thousands of mexican americans who had served in the war returned or moved to los angeles and with the cash stipend provided by the gi bill. Many of these vets had the income to afford a car of course despite the improved economic times mexican american communities were still far from the luxury of beverly hills or the film set glamour of hollywood. I'd say hollywood is trying to say that convincingly knowing that hollywood is not very glamorous. Yeah i'm sure back in the day it was but the thing i find funny in interesting seeing like torres families like german tourists in like they're blonde hair and jean shorts like walking around hollywood so confused. Yeah well this is a this place full of like forty dollars suit stores and like weird pizza places. If you're coming to la don't go to hollywood. It's pretty bad. Plus all the studios are like in culver. All the studio sony's in color but most of them are in north hollywood. With their means of expression limited. Low riders became an important symbol of personal expression. Freedom and cultural independence
Squadcast Launches Video Version of their Service
"Squad. Cast rolled out yesterday video. And so what's interesting is the thing i'm using right now. Stream yard is also has rolled out some new services. They have they have a pro plan. That's fifty dollars a month. And if you do that you get separate audio tracks. I'm assuming i haven't checked to see if it's to me separate video tracks makes my brain hurt because if i end up with two tracks one for you. Gm one for me and then one video track for you and one of those those video if you have separate video. I'm assuming the audio sync with video. Otherwise that's sinking nightmare. Wouldn't you say how you and i don't know what they've done on that and i. It's possible technically. It's possible right. They're recording both ends in there. You know they record the interface as it. We see it They could do separate. I don't i don't know that's new. I didn't i haven't followed their pricing. I took advantage of the ten dollar offer that came out around christmas time and have been pretty happy with that. So i don't think they'll offer that again so streamed artist fifty dollars a month if you want separate tracks and unlimited streaming for that by the way you have unlimited streaming even on the twenty dollar on the twenty five dollar plan onstream yard squad cast a forty dollars for five hours so if somebody said what's the difference between the two one is ten dollars more and you get unlimited streaming. One is forty dollars a month. And you get five hours

Insider Info with Annie Kreighbaum and Nick Axelrod-Welk
"Our guest today are anti creek bombs. And nick axelrod welk anne neck i love. I love a duo on the podcast. Welcome thing so excited to be here so let me let me give a little. A little highlight with your bio. Anne is a beauty journalist turned exac and former brand lead for glossy and nick is a former reporter for l. and wwe which is women's wear daily correct. Yes it is there. Were these things called. Newspapers that we used to read would get delivered every day. It was the fashion newspaper. Like the most. I one of the most iconic fashion newspapers i would say and you are also the co founder of the personal brand. Excuse me personal care brand. Necessar- said that right. It's been awhile since i've taken french. And you co founded the iconic beauty site into the gloss and together. They co host eyewitness beauty which is a beauty and pop culture. Podcast available wherever you get your podcast. You guys to focus on the business side of beauty. And i'm curious with this question. I'm not even i'm wondering if it's even possible for there to be trends in beauty in twenty twenty one when when the beauty is feels like the world has kind of just been uprooted or or changed by this pandemic but what are some trends that you are are seeing that you're seeing and that you like for yourself well on the kind of inside baseball cy. But sure it's not news to anyone like you describe yourself as like more of like a novice like outsiders which i think you're an expert than you give credit for it. But but for since the since they started tracking this stuff color cosmetics which make up products. I don't need to explain to anybody. Listening with that. Means has been like the category that's been consistently the number one revenue driver for any like big brand just for the industry in general like like the biggest challenge of the pie. I don't know what color cosmetics is so that's basically when you walk into a sephora and you're you're the first thing you see is makeup skin care is in the back of the store and the fragrances at the back of the wall like. That's all intentional. In order of sales. Yeah oh lord was at a certain point. Yeah learning okay okay. yeah so. The industry is is sliced up. Land like hair care. Skin care whatever color. Cosmetics has been like since the dawn of time like the number one biggest category billions of billions of dollars. Will just last year skin care has taken over which hilly coming from my glossy and like kind of seeing that wave happen. I think it really started with k beauty coming into the us people on the internet. We're getting much more educated around like ingredients and different. There's going team. I think like the trend has been going on for quite some time. But just last year. I think with the pandemic And people being at home and having to diy more skin care. And i think too like people understanding like actually. I don't need to see a dermatologist. For every little thing. I can exhausted. Leasings myself Skin-care has overtaken. So i think that that's gonna continue for sure in like the entrance of all these mid to lower mid range brands in terms of price point like the ordinary or the inky list or natori like things that could all of a sudden by acid For ten dollars versus what happened probably five years ago which is either the hydraulic. Acid is from lemaire and it's two hundred and fifty dollars or they're probably wasn't even one you could buy in the drug store so i think that they're just exists now category of product. So that you know what like with makeup. You could buy ten dollar lipstick to get the same idea as a forty dollar up stick Same relative color now with skin care. You can sort of do the same thing. Okay so many so many questions. So i wanna i ask you because you mentioned this sensation of going into sephora and everything is so deeply intentional and i know it's the same with marketing and packaging and in thinking about like price points getting lower. Our is the quality of products the same so much of beauty just like markups and exclusivity and making something sound fancy and getting it in the hands of like victoria beckham or is there a true difference in quality so one anecdote i have. Is that one time someone told me in this completely rocked my world. That lemaire is made in long island and and that sort of says it all like you know. It's a cream with some like plankton. In it or you know no seaweed. I guess and it's made long island and they call it. Lum creme de la mayor and it's three hundred dollars Is that does that mean that. There's two hundred dollars worth of ingredients in there. No one hundred fifty. No one hundred fifty eight okay. So for context like the markup degree product but for a healthy cosmetics company business in general the markup on cosmetics from the goop and the packaging is eighty percent margins. So a two dollar what it cost you two dollars to make gold charge ten dollars for and that's like standard across the industry and you can't really knock a cosmetics company for doing that because they are so so cheap to make and to have investors to be able to pay the bills to be able to make this something that can really support a team and you know whatever and like grow a business. That's just industry standard so like. I don't think anybody's pulling the wool. Over consumers is this markup rate on the fashion. It's like some pence fifty percent or less of a markup. So that's i kind of a comparison. I forgot like what other interesting. I was about to say it. But i'm sure nick has a million. Well well yeah it's not. It's not an evil thing. The markup i think there's so many more there's so many more costs testing everything saying what's the difference between something that's like super expensive versus something. That's like a little bit more accessible. I do think that there's a huge difference. I mean i think what the ordinary did is like very interesting. And i still think they make like a lot of great products in general but you kinda of see like the texture of putting on like the heireann sierra and from the ordinary that costs you six dollars versus like one that has more ingredients in it from like a. I don't even know if they have one and playing with taught harper. Like it's this absorbs into skin better doesn't leave sticky feeling. Where's better under makeup. Like might smell nicer. These are all things that you have to consider. Its except for some people. It's worth paying for for others. It's not worth it and they'd rather just by the seven dollar one so okay so this leads me to my next question. Which is i'm kind of obsessed with this idea of dupes especially when it comes to here and makeup like and candles but not all. Dupes are really dupes. I kind of get into this. Like spiral do you believe. Dupes are real as possible to have a troop in skin care or makeup products. I think it's rare. There's certain things that you can charge more money. For the candle you can afford like a fragrance concentrations get a more powerful fragrance certain synthetics that are really expensive like amd brett Which is a mosque. like an animal derived. it was an animal derived. Musk now it's all Made in the lab But that is like a really expensive thing to create. So that's why a lot of like less expensive candles expensive fragrances. Don't have that smell

TSLA is The Chosen One Says Morgan Stanley, Price Target to $810
"Everybody rob power here and today. We're talking about a new note on tesla's stock from morgan stanley. They have increased their price targets significantly. Today after hours. We also have some news on the full. Self-driving beta report on monowai gross margins from china and some news that riven may be raising some more capital taking a look at the stock tussle. Today finished up zero point seven percent to seven hundred and thirty five dollars eleven cents that actually did trail the nasdaq which was up about one percent. But hereafter hours worth. Things have started to get more interesting. After morgan stanley released their updated tussle note. Tesla has jumped by about ten to fifteen dollars. One and a half two percent to read around seven hundred fifty dollars per share otherwise news on tesla was fairly light today. So we're gonna spend most of our time here looking at that note. And as i always say when we look at analyst notes a lot of this is just contextual and it gives us good jumping off points for discussion and things like this also gives us good perspective and insight into the kind of information. That's being circulated around the street. So right off the bat here. This morgan stanley note comes with a great headline. They title the no quote the chosen. One tesla industrializes internet of cars target two eight hundred and ten dollars and quote. That is a huge fifty percent increase over the previous price. Target of five hundred and forty dollars per share. They write quote. We update our forecasts and long-term assumptions. Following better-than-expected cue for deliveries sixty one percent year over year growth and five billion dollar capris raising twenty thirty volume to five point. Zero million units versus three point eight million and taking the price target two hundred ten dollars. Tesla is richly valued for a reason reiterate overweight and quote. Okay so what has changed. Here with morgan stanley's assumptions that has led to this fifty percent price targeted increase while they say they had better than expected volume this year. You four specifically. There's been a significant capillaries. And of course tesla was added to the s. and p. five hundred. So they beat morgan stanley's projection. They have risked and they've been added the s. and p. five hundred which has reduced the float effectively reducing the supply of tesla shares as for the actual changes to their model driving this higher price target. They say that quote the majority of the price target increase comes from the impact of our higher volume assumptions in our model and quote as i said they have increased their twenty thirty delivery forecast from three point. Eight million vehicles to five point two million vehicles and they say that they have now added to factories to their forecast for twenty thirty bringing their total tesla. Plant count to ten. I think that factory count is actually probably pretty close but that would only be you know. Five hundred eighty thousand vehicles per factory by twenty thirty. But it's become very clear. That tesla actually has ambitions of producing two million vehicles or so per factory per year. At least in the case of texas and dig your berlin shanghai. They've said one million plus so even just those factories plus fremont if can hit their production targets in those factories. Gets you to more than five. Point two million that jonas projecting here for twenty thirty as for their earlier year forecasts for twenty twenty one they have increased their projection from seven hundred seventy eight thousand previously now to seven hundred ninety two thousand and as a reminder just as recently as july they had actually been projecting just six hundred and twenty thousand four twenty twenty one so they've actually up that by about thirty percent in just the last six months for twenty twenty two the forecasting one point one five million. I'm not sure what that was previously for. Twenty twenty three. Then they are up from one point. Three five million previously now to one point seven million the fun thing about these increased volume targets from morgan stanley. Is that a few months ago. They did what they called. A great tesla rating. They started including things like mobility services as a recurring revenue from autonomy in their price target. So they're sort of having this ongoing opera moment this year. That as they now add vehicle volume into their forecast they now have to add additional services and revenue margin as well and that is where the game changes in terms of valuation for tusla. And the thing is you. Don't even need a fully autonomous robot taxi type of service to start adding that services revenue in when tesla's starts offering full self driving as a subscription. I think that is going to open a lot. Of analyst is to how tesla's business model is structured and will be increasingly structured going forward leveraging software. It's already easy to say. As i've said in the past that if you want to compare valuations show me another automaker that is selling a ten thousand dollar software option then we can make those comparisons but because that is all sort of right now lumped into the same revenue the same margin line on tussles earnings. People just aren't willing to recognize that yet as a separate line of business when tesla's starts offering full self driving a subscription even if they don't break that out on their earnings that forces a change in how analysts are forecasting and modeling tesla they have to start forecasting recurring high-margin revenue right. Now that's basically all just being pulled forward into that simple ten thousand dollar option which is great but it also makes it easier to ignore the other factor making it easier to ignore right now. Is that a big portion of that is still currently deferred revenue. So it's not actually showing up in earnings. But as tessa delivers more features this year less of that is going to be deferred tussles valuation in and of itself is playing a role here too because it has become so massive analysts have to cover this. They have to cover well. They're getting more and more resources to cover it. They're getting more and more questions as tesla's been added to the s. and p. five hundred those benchmarked funds managers. They need to know what to do with the stock so the coverage is just getting more and more intense and again because the evaluation hide they're going to be a lot of analysts running numbers sort of back testing against that valuation. Saying okay to justify this. This is what needs to happen for the company.
