Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me pamela. So this book begins with a house. Why what is this house. And what role does it play in the novel. Well it's a falling down arts and crafts house. That's in the city of syracuse. The main character. Sam has a habit of going to these kind of open houses. With no intention to buy and she finds us wreck of a house and syracuse you can actually buy houses for forty thousand dollars thirty thousand dollars that are completely falling apart and she just impulsively signs a contract for this house senate. Only when she's driving home that she realizes she's going to leave her husband and her entire life. And i think one of the questions that drives the novel in the beginning is why does she do this really reckless thing with her life and and i think she falls in love with the and i am part of me was thinking of writing a midlife person blowing up their life but i didn't want it to be because they fell in love with a younger lover which seems kind of cliche. I thought we're done with that. We're dealing with no this house. And i think the question is what is the house speak to her and i guess it wasn't what i was writing it. I didn't think about it as much. But after i thought okay. The house is hiding in plain sight at you could ignore it or you can look closely and see the beauty there and i think she's she thinks it speaks to her and she's the only one that can still see that it's beautiful and so maybe that has something to do about the state. The cheese in or that. Her life is in to that. She needs to kind of look at her life in a different way so she can see what's still beautiful and what still needs work. Maybe

Will you stop talking about the science and will you please tell me what's in it for me because you're wasting my time. Those are the reds those are the doctors you wanna find and those are the doctors you wanna move in livy and breathe perhaps perhaps the best argument for medicare for all i've seen But alex gibney if you can talk about who alec burlakov is. What insists is it. You start with purdue pharma the prototype of all of this in expand to other drug companies. Well instances a company that was selling a product called substance which was a spray where you would spray fennel in small quantities underneath your tongue and it would help to alleviate pain but alec birlik offers a salesman actually was rather high up at at insists in terms of sales. And they're using the playbook that purdue kind of initiated but taking to a great extreme so that it's all about the money and it's all about trying to find either corrupt money hungry or other You know doctors who that becomes your business model to look to those people to enuma to compensate them for being speakers to promote your drug but really a when it came to insist they actually had a return on investment of flow chart. So that if you got forty thousand dollars for a insists as speaker you had to prescribe at least two times that amount or they cut you off and explain. As saying speaker quotes in other words. It's legal to pay doctors to to speak on behalf of a drug but but in this case so so in other words to go out and talk to other doctors about how great this drug is. The problem was that they weren't really speaking. I mean they were just pay the money and they would go and have dinner and maybe talked to a couple of people but it was really a quid-pro-quo it was just a bribe. We'll give you forty thousand dollars. Provided you prescribe eighty thousand dollars of insects and they would encourage them also to up the dose to titrate up because the The more you increase the dose the more money that instances making i mean it's just a you know you see in alad burlakov exactly the argument for medicare for all because you have these terrible incentives where the incentive is not to cure the patient.

Q&A: How to Fund Rehabs and Renovations

"Today's question comes from shanty long and shanties question is we're about to close in a duplex in. It's going to need anywhere between six thousand to ten thousand dollars in repairs. What are some options for funding this rehab so ash. I'll let you go first narconon chime in with my thoughts afterwards. Okay the first thing. I thought of when i was reviewing this question was credit cards. So what did you say. It was six to ten thousand. They're looking to spend with that amount. You could easily get a credit card. Usually for that amount of money and there are so many credit cards out there that will do zero percent interest. So what this means. Is you start buying materials supplies with the credit card at lowe's home depot wherever your hardware store is to get your materials or even online new use credit card to pay and the credit card will usually give you zero percent interest so all you have to do is make a minimum payment every month which can be if you have ten thousand dollars on their. Depending on the interest rate you could probably be paying ninety dollars a month is the minimum payment towards the card. So what your strategy here is to get a card that has that zero percent interest for as long as you're going to be doing the rehab and until you can refinance so for example. Some of the cards will do it for eighteen months. And hopefully your rehab and your refinances completed by then so that you can pay off the credit card before you're actually charged interest on those payments and you're just making that minimum payment which is actually going towards your balance and not towards interest. So i think that is one of the greatest tools that you can actually use and you can find the zero percent interest credit cards on the business side or in your personal name to. Yeah no. that's great advice actually and especially at that dollar amount right sixty thousand you said. It should be not too big of an obstacle for most people to get approved for for something around that loan limit. I think something else to consider and shaun tait didn't really share. What the potential rv or the purchase price of this property is but i mean at six thousand dollars you could also try and borrow money from a family member from a friend and say hey. Loan me ten thousand dollars. I'm gonna fix up. This property wants it's done. I'm going to be able to pull out forty thousand dollars. Whatever the number is. And then. I'll be able to give you a return on your money

Don't Neglect the Power of a Coach

"Today's quick tip is don't neglect the power of a coach. Look when we talk about what a coach is. It's really somebody who has done what you are doing before you has learned a lot of the things you're trying to figure out on your own and has taken the time to analyze those things and come up with a system to help you learn them. Faster coaches are not just for athletes. Coaches are for everyone. A coach can short near learning curve. And that means help you make money a lot faster and a lot quicker than you would if you did it on your own so in many areas of life your spiritual life your fitness your wealth building. Whatever it is that you're passionate about and you care about look to see how you can get some coaches in your world david. What are your thoughts on. I agree a hundred percent and i utilize this. But how do you avoid like the get rich quick guru who says i'm gonna make you rich overnight you'll pay me forty thousand dollars. Is that what you're talking about. Could it be what you're talking about. Like how do you view that. So that's not coach with that as a person who's trying to say i will help you accomplish what you want and help you avoid the journey to get there. That is what gurus capitalize on. They say if you buy my system if you pay your money if you buy these courses you won't have to learn how to build a business. You could just have a business. They make you believe that they are. You're buying a business from them from that forty thousand dollars. But you're not. They're still just going to give you the information that you have to go actually an act now. The best coaches walk you through the journey that you're trying to do and help you perform better so first off. The expense of the coaching is one. Big way that you can know that this is not legit. Now some coaches like tony robbins. I think he charges a million dollars a year. And if you're able to afford that it makes sense for you to go higher. Tony robbins is your coach. But tony robbins isn't going to tell you that he's going to make you're gonna make ten million dollars just because you spent that one million you're the one that's still go has to do it. So that's one of the litmus test that i have is when someone tells me hey if you buy this program you can get this thing if they're selling me the thing. I know it's not true. I'd be better off to spend that forty thousand dollars to go by the house. Then it would be to buy the

"Victoria. And where nato angelo. Where a couple living in manila in the philippines. They had a pretty hot life. When i worked as a rickshaw driver and the whole family lived in a tin roof shack but they had a dream. Tim hoffa talks about this in his cautionary tales. Podcast and that dream is that they'll win a very unusual lottery. The lottery is called number fever in the lottery. Numbers are printed on the inside of bottle tops on bottles of pepsi. They sat down every night to wash numbers drawn on tv. If the number from your bottle top was drawn in one grand prize you could win a million pesos. That's equivalent to about forty thousand american dollars. That is a lot of money in the philippines in one thousand nine hundred to a life changing amount of money for victoria and anita if they were ever to win it but of course. It's just that one grand prize. What are the chances they would ever win. What was the number. The number was three four nine one evening. They are watching the television and the lottery. Juries held on the number comes up and it's three four nine. They can't believe it. Got forty thousand dollars a million pesos. They the children can go to college. Anita doesn't have to work as a rickshaw driver any more it would be like winning a million dollars in the us.

"Who you guys have heard on this coming britney alone and we're we're one of the first people to talk to him after that video went viral and fausto uk utah. Chris like your leave britney alone. Video is a work of art. It is a modern version of something like the mona lisa. So so the model and for people like you're exaggerating. The mona lisa is considered the world's greatest painting because it can't it's seen possibly as a self portrait of leonardo da vinci as a woman. It's about a at the most at the very least it's about a gay artist trying to understand the feminine mystique where the mona lisa is looking at us smiling. But we really don't truly know what she's thinking and why she's smiling so we're pulled towards her and at the same time her feminine strength. Her defiance is also there captured in this very complicated face that leonardo da vinci created and so as a gay man he saw her of like saying i relate to the the struggle the the condition of being a woman in this world but at the same time. It's not something. I fully understand and so like sister. Wendy on pbs Tv series sister had a great analysis of the mona lisa. As the greatest painting ever made I think it is sort of all. It's very small. I think with the mona lisa. It is obviously. It's a western work of art and there's other great works art and other cultures and other time periods. But the mona lisa obviously is painting that influences and is parodied and discussed the talking about to this day and much like the mona lisa. I think at the time period. When chris crocker made leave britney alone it was something that was referenced. It was something that was parodied. Allot it was something. That was analyzed and it was about this young person's pain and suffering about seeing a female pop star being Struggling with her mental health issues in the hands of the paparazzi and that that pain and suffering that she was going to. Chris could really relate to because he was having issues and struggles with his mother and and with bullies in school and with bullies in school. So you know just like the mona lisa. Hit leave britney alone was sort of a police forward because we were attracted to this emotional state of this young person's numb video and that is something we really couldn't fully understand or relate to and that's why i compare it to the mona lisa and so this week i guess chris crocker made an announcement that he is sold the ownership of the video for digital currency Forty-one thousand he went. And what do you think of the value of that valued at the right price. Or i think it's actually undervalued to be honest. You know. I mean i mean. I'm not an art dealer and stuff. But i think forty thousand dollars for a video that has shaped so much of western culture and internet. Culture is to me a give away. So what's the difference between like is doing this kind of crypto currency thing and like owning the copyright. So now it's this thing is actually become. Its own money or something. How does this work. So well maybe backtracking is what is crypto currency in the first place. Like a coin. What do they call it. A the terminology for for that specifically it's called Eight non fungible token what is fungible..

I counted about a year ago. And i learned a little bit. What your story. And ever. Since then i've been like tomorrow on the podcast so excited that we finally made this happen today and i want to learn more about you and that journey. So why don't we start early on. How'd you get into this idea of real estate investing. How did you get that. Get bit by the bug. So i when i was twenty years old i was an executive in television and i was making six figures and i thought. Oh wow. I've got it made but i knew better because i realized that i was exchanging time for money and that. If i didn't have that job i would basically be. I don't know i wouldn't be able to survive. And how i assert looking at my bottom line and it made me think about when i was fourteen and a half. I really wanted a car. And i grew up poor. I was the child of a holocaust survivor and i. I wanted that car. I was going to have to work for it. And so by the time i was sixteen i had saved five thousand dollars and cut to me realizing my bottom line. Which was that. I needed to figure out how to get rid of rent. That was the biggest expense. And so i took the forty thousand dollars that i had saved and i put ten percent down on a duplex in one side of it. Then i lived in one side of it and i lived in los angeles. I also lived within two miles of my work. Which made it really easy because your time can really get sucked up when you live far away from your job. Especially in la. That's awesome all right. so i got started. How do you what your that was like. How long is in aides myself a little bit but it was nineteen ninety eight ninety nine perfect. That makes you like twenty nine years old today.

Silly and Misleading Retirement Calculators

"I think the main reason people seem amazed at the idea of retiring at age. Thirty forty or even fifty is the lack of real information on early retirement. In general if you type retirement calculator into a search engine these days and enter some stats about yourself. You will find some very strange assumptions. That are guiding you to think you need an absolute load of money to retire for example. I was once working through such a guide in a magazine from northern. Trust a bank that caters to the wealthy. It went something like this. Consider your goals for retirement. What life events do you need to be prepared for. The following table lists average cost children's and grandchildren's university education. A hundred thousand dollars per child children's and grandchildren's weddings twenty five thousand dollars. Assisted care facilities a hundred thousand dollars per year. Medical costs funeral arrangements. Twenty five thousand dollars trust funds for loved ones esteem and legacy planning and charitable foundations. 'wow looks like you're well into the millions before you even get to buy yourself some groceries. Another retirement calculator on cnn. Dot com has various parts to fill out dropdown boxes pre filled with hand values like retiring at age sixty five and needing seventy percent of your maximum pre retirement income constantly for the rest of your life. The drop down box with seventy percent in it did not even offer a value lower than forty percent. This percentage of income concept is one of the most anti mustache ones out there if you make two hundred thousand dollars per year just before retiring this experience. Corrupt you so much that you need a hundred and forty thousand dollars per year for the rest of your life or is it possible to maintain the same luxury standards of a person who has a merely comfortable income like forty thousand dollars per year. This goes back to the ideas of the get what you need posting. I made recently and that is why not go for maximum happiness rather than maximum consumption. I propose that maximum happiness is achieved at a spending level where you live in a comfortable space. Eat healthy foods and get to do lots of active and stimulating things with friends. That doesn't have to cost a hundred and forty thousand dollars per year or even fifty thousand dollars per year for most of us the other assumption they push on people is a very low rate of savings they assume you will less than the annual limit on 401k contributions. And don't say much about what to do if you save more than that which the high income person mentioned a few paragraphs ago could certainly do so these banks and mutual fund companies will continue to tell you that you need millions of dollars to retire because it benefits them for you to invest your money with them. Luckily it's a harmless bit of tom foolery since the saving benefits you as well but the disservice they do is in scaring people out of dreaming to save faster or to think about much shorter time horizons like tenures instead of just plain old age. Sixty five so. I'll give you a quick retirement calculator of my own adult couple with no kids or whose children are. Grown can live very comfortably on forty thousand dollars per year and retirement. My own family lives very comfortably with one child on somewhere. In the twenty seven thousand dollar range you can shoot higher or lower depending on what level of luxury water pursue twenty. Two eighty thousand dollars is a good absolute maximum sane range. But if you don't want to calculate everything out just go for forty thousand dollars and figure out how to make your savings produce that for you for a single person. It might be difficult to slice in half because you lose some benefits from sharing a house in car but you can come close to quick early retirement budgets number one in early retiree couple lives on thirty thousand dollars per year. Earning five thousand of that combined in part time luxurious post retirement careers. The remaining twenty five thousand dollars per year is generated by their savings. Six hundred and twenty five thousand dollars of total savings are required to generate this amount of passive income using the four percent rule number two an early retirees single person leaves on twenty five thousand dollars. Earning ten thousand dollars on his or her many career. Fifteen thousand dollars per year is required from savings which calls for a nest egg of about three hundred and seventy five thousand dollars. I'm working on some much more detailed and exciting sample budgets using real numbers for my own spending experiences before and after retirement

From $33k in Debt to $100k+ in Net Worth Through House Hacking & Smart Saving with Budget Girl

"Sarah. Welcome back to the show. I'm so excited to see you again. Thank you so much. I'm so thrilled to be here. Tell us what you've been up to the last three years. I believe in three years since i last spoke with you like on online. I've spoken to offline. Yes so last time i was on the show i had just paid off thirty three thousand dollars student loan debt on an average thirty thousand dollar income. I started at twenty six. And since then i have Saved a bunch of money and now have an over one hundred thousand dollar net worth and i am the owner of a duplex ashley. Hundred thousand air over here and if you haven't mentioned this earlier but if you haven't already go back and listen to episode six because it's just incredible i mean it's it's not the most debt we've heard paid off in the show but it's the most debt we've paid off her had seen paid off in the shortest amount of time relative to the income level that you had it's truly remarkable impressive feat and no surprises that you're becoming wealthy a few years later with the after after achieving that thank you it is. It's a lot more fun to build up the wealthy to pay off the debt. I'll tell you that and a lot faster too. That's really fun. Just grow compound. Interest is working for you or against you. Can you tell us a little bit about Just to catch up on the money story before we get into the review. You come a little bit of catch-up on the duplex potentially or any other highlights of the journey of the last three years. Yes so The duplex purchase. I actually have only had for ten months. So i bought it right when the pandemic started my i was wrenching and i was saving up for a property. 'cause i knew i wanted to do multifamily and i found the perfect place after shopping for a year. Right is the world went to hell so it came to the at a very good time because my rental apartment was actually going to increase three hundred dollars a month and so i started really seriously thinking like if i find the deal that where the numbers work. Let's go ahead and do this. So it was a two hundred thirty thousand dollar property in college station texas and it has three bedroom two bath on each side little backyard little three parking spots freeze unit very cute little things in a little subdivision near the campus texas a and m university campus in the direction that the campus is growing. So i very much anticipate that that will increase in value. And it already has. It's actually already to fifty after ten months. 'cause i just replied oh right i would point out that somebody else on this call also purchased in the path of progress and that would be scott not me because we have different investment styles but that is a really great thing that i think some people don't realize or take into account if the path of progress is going north. You did to be looking north. Because those are where the properties are going to appreciate at a faster rate than the potential path of progress than outside the potential path progress that nothing's guaranteed scott. Had a really great way to choose his property to and it was smack in the path of progress yeah parallel also my properties with two hundred and forty thousand dollars a very similar type of deal for us and even our cabinets are the same assault on instagram. Yeah the same exact cabinets that by my head but let me ask you. This is your property located what he said a path of progress in the best area. You could be living in right now if you were to purchase anywhere in the In a thirty mile radius not even close. But it's also not in the worst it's kind of a medium area. There's some older homes nearby and there's also a they just built like a walmart and a shopping center there and but more importantly texas owns so much of the surrounding area and they keep building in that direction. And i mean the university plans are on the website for free. You can go look at them and that like they're planning on growing in that direction so i could be just like a spit from one of their like giant new enormous buildings and a couple of years. Awesome in my understanding. Is your house hacking this. Yes so i am renting outside a i. Actually originally i inherited a hud tenant who is paying ten fifty a month. Her lease ended at the end of february. I m doing some fix ups on the project this month in march and i have a new tenant moving in april at twelve fifty a month also and i understand that you're crowd sourcing feedback on your remodel on instagram. So you can follow her at go budget girl and she really wants more opinions on how what color. She should paint the kitchen cabinets. A second. is that right. Oh definitely and the other parts of the house hacking of course is i actually so i have renters on a i live in but my boyfriend also lives with me and i charged him five hundred dollars a month in rent because nobody sugar mama i was. I was gonna say how did that him. That's still a good deal right. That's less than the other half the other side so like it's a three bedroom unit so we have an office and we share a bedroom. He has a lease that i worked for him. And we've both side with you know contingencies for things. It might happen. He didn't have a deposit he doesn't have pet rent and he essentially gets way more space than he would anywhere else in town for that price and due to that he's helping me with the a unit right now. He was mopping yesterday. While i was at work all right perfect it works out. But i'm glad there's the conversation and what's your mortgage payment on this It was originally just under seventeen hundred dollars a month. So i was paying one hundred fifty dollars a month out of pocket and but just reside and i was able to go down almost a whole point so my new mortgage is going to be fifteen sixty four so just under sixteen hundred so i'm going to be making one hundred dollars a month. That's fantastic. And so why did you refi. Generally it was it was it because of the Interest mostly or was there like pm. Is that you're able to shed or what were some of the things around that. Unfortunately i wasn't able to shed. Pm i quite yet. But i saw that interest rates were dropping. I was pleased with my rate. Got a three point six five right around the time that everything was going down and then it bumped up a little bit and i did. Fha loan so. I only put three point five percent down. Even though the property appraised for tenure. And more than i paid and even though it's now worth tango and more than that i'm still not quite to the level where i can shave off the pm. I but that's one hundred fifty dollars a month. And i find that to be worth it.

"forty thousand dollars" Discussed on BiggerPockets Money Podcast

"But that house doesn't exist so have enough money to make a good down payment so that you're either waving pm or you're paying a low amount of pm and then have money for all the closing costs and have money for something that's gonna break because something's gonna break and i'll just add into that that you know there's there's a stable income component to this. There's good credit there's having cash not just for your downpayment but for closing costs that you'll pay as the buyer with that transaction and then there's i think having access to liquidity your cash in reserve for that mindy likes to say that you're the amount of problems you're gonna experience after buying a home is inversely correlated with the amount of reserves that you've accumulated so if you buy a property and you have and you down forty thousand dollars and that's all you have and you have nothing left in the bank. You're going to have fifteen thousand dollars in repairs to make in the first three months. And it's gonna be a huge stressor for you if you've got fifteen thousand dollars in the bank. You're going to have no repairs and everything's gonna be smooth sailing. So i don't know that's murphy's law and that's not a real truth but but that's the way to think about it with. This is make sure that after the down payment you've got those reserves and i would say you're in a stronger position. The person that put zero percent down and got a va loan on the property or three and a half percent down and has ten fifteen thousand dollars in the bank in reserves to cover unexpected emergencies. I think they're in a stronger position than the person who is forty thousand dollars down and has no reserves right. So i think the down payment is important because it can affect your financing options. Like mindy says pm. I can be very expensive. Let's call that's private mortgage insurance. You pay an extra fee if you put down three and a half percent or a very low down payment on a property compared to somebody putting down fifteen twenty twenty five percent on a property they made pay little or no mortgage insurance on that because they're putting down more they have more equity in the property so those can all be considerations but in general i think the strong like for me. I put down five percent on my first property wide. I put down five percent because the property was. What are the cheapest. I could fight at two hundred forty thousand dollars. I only had twenty thousand dollars. And i was saving at a rate of about one thousand a month so it it taken me about four or five more years to save up enough to buy a property to buy my first duplex than to avoid. The pm is so. I put down five percent earlier. And that was a and i had some reserves. That was the right. Move for me. But i think i think it's just understanding those costs and those types of things when when you're thinking through i to highlight what you said right there. Scott you said. I had some reserves and that i i don't wanna kick it horse but i really think that you can't stress that enough. You need to have some money in the bank that you don't touch you're not it's not invested in stocks. It's easily liquid dateable because something will break and the person who is responsible for fixing the house when you own the house is you and you're not gonna come and change anything and you don't wanna go without hot water. You don't wanna go without heat or air conditioning or whatever it is that just broke. You don't want to have a leaky roof because that leads to mold which leads to some really big problems. You are responsible for making these repairs so have the money to do it..

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.

I Cant Afford One Bitcoin! What Can I Do?

"Bitcoin is hot. Stop amidst this current bull market. We've seen a rush of new users who like most new users have no what's going on and one question of particular comes up a whole lot that i wanted to talk about today. What do i do if i can't afford one bitcoin. I'm adam levine and this is speaking of bit point. Today's always i'm joined by the other host of the show. Andreas 'em and operas. Hello stephanie murphy. I am jonathan mahan. Hey thanks to all the hosts into you listener for sitting on today's session. So i was talking to some people new to the cryptocurrency space last week and they were talking about what they were looking at making the first coins and they said that bitcoin just cost too much that it was too expensive that even if they agreed with all of the fundamental values the changes that will happen in the world. How bitcoin is a hedge for that and that bitcoin was going to. Let's say three x or five x in the next ten years and they saw that is real that they just didn't feel like transferring their wealth into something that they would never have one that they would never have one bitcoin that even if they spent a decade doing everything they could they would only ever have less than one bitcoin as a failure state as something that like emotionally. They couldn't get past. And i started thinking about myself when i was in college. I learning about bitcoin. And honestly i don't know if bitcoin had hit thirty or forty thousand dollars instead of dollar if i could have seen it as something that i wanted to get into just because of that mountain cliff of believing in something but then feeling like a failure. Because you don't even have quote unquote one of it. What do you guys think about that. What do you think people should be thinking about when it comes to that. I think that's an important psychological marker that people check in with when they're thinking about do i wanna buy this. How much does it cost to buy. One of this thing and i mean the real solution to that is to reframe. You're thinking there's other units to measure bitcoin in lots of wallets denominate their balances in mila. Bits now which is one thousandth of a bitcoin and you can change that in the settings and so you know if you could afford one million. Bitcoin would you by that. What about wants to toshi. The units are actually quite arbitrary. And it doesn't help that. The news and everything reports the price in terms of one bitcoin but that is also kind of helpful for a very long term perspective to see that it went from being worth nothing up to you know nearly fifty thousand dollars. There's other things that exhibit similar behavior for example. Some stocks have extremely high unit prices. And of course you can buy fractions of them berkshire. Hathaway is a famous example of that other things that have this kind of tendency. Are things like precious metals. You know you don't say well. I'm not gonna invest in gold because i can't afford a whole kilogram bar. Well yeah i mean. You can't but that doesn't mean that you can't get an airing. It's still gold is just a different value. And the unifies works both ways so for example instead of saying why can't afford a bitcoin but i can't afford a bit which is millions of a bitcoin. You can't afford a bit and that has a nice name. It's not merely bitcoin. Which kind of makes it sounds like a bitcoin with too many feet. That's a bad greek joke. It's not a unit that has no relationship you could also just measuring soto. She's because we all know of course are the standard as i keep getting reminded and you could choose any arbitrary unit but you can also go the other way right. You could redefined for example. Ten bitcoin as a chad hike. Very few people can really afford to buy a whole chad. But could i buy one tenth of a chat of bitcoin or desi chavez. I prefer to call it it. Oh all of these things are completely arbitrary and you can torment yourself on way or rejoice the out there in a completely arbitrary way and this is the key here arbitrary. It's not rational to focus. On any specific unit and we have a word for things that humans do the deviate from rationality or norm and those are called cognitive by and this particular thing is called unit bias. It's of well known cognitive bias and is studied in psychology from a number of different perspectives. It's not just the. I want to own one bitcoin. It's also the if you give me a twenty four ounce cup of soda. I'm going to drink the whole thing. Just because it comes in that size even though i may be only wanted half of it or if you create a heaping plate of french fries or if you give me a giant bag of doritos i'm gonna finish everything. Unit biases be studied a lot in terms of portions for eating. Because it actually one of the things that drives a number of eating disorders because it's a cognitive bias. It's a bug in your ability to think rationally about certain situations and that bug can lead to behavior that is against your own self interest and so this is a normal thing to have unit bias and sometimes says expresses itself in hilarious ways like for example to jonathan's example of people saying well. I can't buy a whole bitcoin. you get the opposite. Which is people who bought into dosage and are looking at it at six cents going. Yeah we can get it to a dollar dollar while allowing me to answer that watson dollar. What you don't understand dear sir is that there are one hundred twenty nine does and they are produced at a rate of what is it. One point four million a day and so to get does to a dollar. It's total market capitalization would have to reach a hundred and thirty five billion dollars or basically where a theorem walls last week. Now i don't know how you measure the utility of does and even if you think cerium is shit. Coin will not that bad

"When you're picking your beta name pick something so bad that when you finally get to the point you're trying to pick your real name and you're really struggling. You won't be tempted to use your name. So that was the other also struggling. Of course we getting to the end. We're getting probably only two or three weeks away from launch and we still don't have a name and so we go okay. We're gonna have forced this one and we everyone a conference room and we on a whiteboard made two columns. We brainstormed every possible word. That was vakhidov of the internet. You know net and web and e and then the other column we brainstormed words that were evocative of video or rental and then began drawing. The crisscrossing lies between them. And you know some of them. Were i thought pretty good. My favorite was replay dot com. Which i thought. Oh that's pretty cool. But replay was available. But it cost forty thousand dollars. And they may well quoted me forty million dollars at that point that i was gonna pay forty thousand dollars for a name and other one was cinema center dot com. And then we had all the other variations we have web flicks we had net flicks with a ck s. We had you know all these crazy names and net flicks was far and away. No one's favourite. And whether you remember this. Tim but back. In the you know in the sixties and seventies the nickname for porno used to be a skin flick or skiing fricks. And everyone's gone we can call it flicks ex that xs even worse but after a while you're going on the list and you can't get the domain name. It can't trademark. This is already being used in canada. And then finally you go. Okay this we gotta make a decision and netflix was a a a little corny but it was the best we could do and i just want to underscore one thing. You said this really important likely. At least at the time available as a trademark across the board right at domestically and internationally if you look like replay dot com where even net flicks with a c k s. You can stretching a little bit here but you can get into kind of descriptive murky territory and like you said there. Are these check boxes. That are really important to look at very closely. A friend of mine because we're recording this during the game. Stop mania and excitement in a friend of mine was thinking of using the wsb wall street bets etcetera for a spin off business of sorts and and he was about to put a bunch of money into developing it and said before you do that.

"Right in. The moment has never been a good thing. So much as in inevitable thing is this. It are we there and if this isn't it then what do we think it'll look like when it does arrive. Yes we are definitely there. I think maybe we were even there before this at the last major run up in what was two thousand. Seventeen up to twenty thousand. We saw a huge unprecedented spike in new user. Adoption point awareness of bitcoin and crypto currencies spiked as well as the guidelines. The regulatory space became more kind of fleshed out. And you know sure. There were still plenty of half baked projects some of which turned out to be scams but i think a lot of people learn about crypto was the scams included in how to protect themselves from it and people are still learning about it so i think we've already sort of reached at least the first milestone. Aol moment. but i've been on this journey for a while. And i remember a lot of moments like this. You know that were exciting for example. I don't know if anyone remembers this. But remember when bitcoin got like this first article on slash dot twenty ten or something like that and i remember hearing about it on a talk radio show back in twenty eleven or twenty twelve i think from gavin andresen going on the show. So you know. I've seen a lot of exciting moments with quite disappointing moments too. But this does feel like a special moment that we haven't yet seen so far and i think it counts as the aol moment humbug. When do we go from banking the on banked and it's all about the other six billion to simpson for investment banking billionaires. I mean you know. I'm a bit disappointed. I think that happened the same time. Block streaming integrated tether probably. I know i know listen. I'm really happy that bitcoin is getting the attention. It's getting positive negative. And i'm really happy for a lot of people who waited very patiently and are seeing agree return on investment but at the same time like applauding j. p. morgan for finally finding in the pits of the dark saw the opportunity to praise an acknowledge bitcoin. Because it might make the money really. That's what we're doing a year ago or a little bit more than that the ceo. There was saying something really negative about big code but <hes>. Bitcoin do you guys remember that. Yeah bitcoin is dead says j. p. morgan before saying it reaches one hundred thirty thousand sometime in the near future. How here's the thing as much as i'm excited about the excitement that everybody's excited about. This is really the kind of fickle attention that is going to go away as fast as they came.
