The Porn Reboot Podcast Episode 160: The Problem With Semen Retention

"Welcome to the porn re podcast where you get practical tips to gaining control over your phone or sex addiction. I'm your host, Jake, Ama's certified sex and porn addiction because we coach welcome to the episode today, agreeing to speak about little topic, all seamen retention, and some of you may be familiar with it. A lot of you may not be familiar with it now if you spend any amount of time on Youtube, which you may not, there's this thing called semen retention. Some of you may be familiar with Novak. and. Each of these are movements by men. Which I believe our response to some of the changes that are occurring in our society. These are a wave of disenfranchised men to regain control of their lives. You know the dating market has changed in women are have higher standards. Women are getting educated at a higher rates than men. We have the METOO movement which leaves a lot of men very confused. It has become very obvious at this point almost undeniable that long term monogamy marriages in particular are very challenging to maintain. Men are starting to realize they haven't already that in most cases. They. Get the short end of the stick when it comes to relationships when it comes to dating as well. They realized that. If they would end up in divorce court with or without a pre nup that they are severely disadvantaged. and. Of course you can reframe all of it not. Consider any of these detrimental rather detrimental impact to men and you can choose to. Just see the positive. which is what I do. At the same time I'm not unaware of these changes and I feel that when it comes to things like the Stop, Vapin Movements and Simmons retention by the way semen retentionists is becoming a movement where men basically do not have sex do not orgasm and do not masturbate in an effort to direct that energy to words, De Success towards the health would a spiritual growth and I think. That the overarching reason for doing this, this is good I think it's I think it is absolutely greats. Unfortunately, they are few negative aspects of this which I'm going to talk about in this episode, because chances are at the rates that the semen retention thing is gaining momentum. You are going to hear about it at some point. There are even semen retention coaches. The police philosophies about it so I would like to address. It also received a lot of emails and comments on social media with. Individuals asking me what my take on this now. Personally I believe in the effects of semen retention, three things in particular, and in might sales days when I was going door to door I was running sales, teams and I built an organization. I personally noticed the difference in the way I communicated and showed up to my clients in terms of personal magnetism when I did not masturbate a when I was not watching pornography and I believe that most of you listening to this podcast. What I mean you know that you have more focus yellow bit more and. Little bit more magnetic when you haven't depleted, you'll cement so to speak. I felt that in terms of closing sales in terms of influencing my clients, I was much better at doing so. Had Not masturbated. The second thing I noticed was that might aggressiveness and Masculine Energy was higher. I had more of a need to dominate when I had not masturbated or orgasms. When I had I felt satisfied in almost every area of my life. I didn't feel motivated to chase anything, but when I had a strong drive to orgasm I had a strong drive to chase women, I was just more aggressive general, and I was able to transmute so to speak that sexual energy into my career pursuits. And speaking of career pursuits that brings us to Earth thing I was more ambitious, and our so much more motivated in long term so I could basically stacked my motivation, and I was internally motivated the thing about. Semen retention and stop shopping and symbolical them. Simple movements is that. It's easy. Right the practice itself is hard, but the concept in its current form, and the promises which are given are too easy. And the audience, the men who? Wants to control this actual behavior so that they can be more magnetic, so they can be more aggressive, so they can be more masculine so that they can have more vicious that they can be more motivated, so they're are not a slave to that desires. This is an audience of men. Who actually wants to have sex with attractive women right? They are men who wants power day once a control. They want success in a material way. They also wants people forming at their best mentally. They wants to be happy. But they don't have any of these things. The are not content with what they have for the most part. They just don't have that the anoc dating the attractive woman that they want to date. They don't have the power to once. They don't have the financial means that they want. They don't have the motivation and ambition. And I'll give you. An illustration of this. See Men who actually? Have a lot of sex men who have that amazing ripped muscular body men, who financial freedom or even wealth. They don't spend all the time. Talking. About Semen retention. They don't spend their lives talking about. How you know controlling the ability to autism. Is the cause off their success with women, De Success in business success in their careers that success when it comes to the physical appearance and the a health. The do not do that because they realize. They realized because the reality is. It has nothing to do with that. It's something that may have helped them, but the drive. To succeed. For ambitious men hall for the most part. Isn't determined solely. By, semen, retention or behavior, it's just one aspect of. I can point to history. Many famous UNIX at as M- slaves, who castrated who historically rose to great prominence in many kingdoms, cross the ages, and these women didn't have balls, but ended up being very powerful man. How do you explain the rise of famous UNIX and I? Don't have any specific names that come to mind, but I'm happy to do another podcast episode and talk about that historically. How do you explain those men with other sex drive who attained positions of power? Right, who had the aggressiveness to do certain things, historically, the original purpose of semen retention as a term was to gain. More depth in wants spiritual practice. So when somebody was pursuing spiritual path and alive, they would come to point where they realized. That lust and that strong desire took away from bat, spiritual practice, and so they had to learn how to control that, and they also deeper spiritual meanings to that tree lawns cover in this episode. Unfortunately. The modern purpose of semen retention is more. Material material drives material purpose in the maslow's hierarchy of needs. It is right there at the bottom. It is far away from enlightenment is far away from all those things. It's more of outs. Oh, I want to. Be Powerful. I want to have more resources. I want to be more attractive to women I want to be able to hit the gym. I WANNA be a quote. Unquote Alpha male right in my personal journey going from pretty much poverty. To, the first time, I made six figures in income to. Having sex with lots of different women. To being a long term relationship. While the rebooting process removes a lot of obstacles from my past, which will holding me back? It was not rebooting or semen, retention, or stopping anything like that that brought me success in these areas of my life. It was hard work in all. These areas hard work. Getting mentor repetition doing the boring work learning failing. Giving up getting back on the horse, trying again, learning more getting a better mentor screwing up. Just the regular, the good old grind. And thankfully I just didn't have sex and my sexual be not didn't have sex to clarify. My sexual behavior was no longer a distraction at this time. So this whole semen retention thing for those of you who have heard about it is motivation is dressed up. Right. It's easy because it tells you and it implies that if you retain your semen if you do not masturbate if you control your sexual behavior. That you will have success in all areas of your life. And Human Beings We loved the easy path. We love hearing that right. The truth is that the path to abundance confidence to power to wealth, and so on takes work. It's much more than just controlling your sexual behavior or your semen. At the end of dates, it's also just the hustle right. Polian Hill was one of the first people in more than times or out in the West. The talk about sexual transportation, and how it related to success I believe in Chapter Fifteen sixteen of thinking grow rich book, but around that time and I believe even prior to that bt. Barnum the famous Focus Showman, some of you may have watched a movie. The greatest showman that was a hustle for him at one point, his circus business failed, and he needed to make money, and because he was a great promoter, there was something called the temperance movement back in those days was a movements to that preached about the benefits. Benefits of quitting alcohol, so and you didn't drink, or you drank in moderation that they were all these wonderful benefits, and it was a big thing for a couple of decades, and so he went on the road. He did temperance motivational speaking circuits in a way. He traveled around and he spoke about. You know how you would get all these wonderful things in your life. If you quit alcohol and if you couldn't. If you did it in moderation, it's basically a hustle and the reason why I call it. A hustle compared to actual movements, which treated people for alcohol. Addiction was because it made it seem so easy. There were no steps. There was no system. It was just pure motivation and raw, as is the case with semen retention and stop Eventually as these movements gain more sophistication over time that will slowly try to put things together. As a system, because eventually people will realize there's actually nothing that they gained from it that their lives of unchanged after four five six years following them. So, if you've ever come across semen retention just realized that it has its benefits, but if you have an out of control behavior with porn, sex and masturbation, it's going to take a lot more than motivation to end your behavior that serious work which needs to be done. And the beautiful thing is the many systems out there. The porn reward system included which will help you. This I'm Jay. Your brother into struggle. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to this episode of the porn would podcast. I'll speak to you later in the week.

7. International Breaking my Heart!

"Hello everyone and welcome to eighteen ninety and extra time podcast this is rob i hope everybody had a great weekend unfortunately the top top leagues are on the internet every league i guess is the international break <hes> so fortunate we were stuck with the national team level level football this weekend <hes> i know different people have different feelings about that i guess i'm a little impartial i guess i don't really really dislike it too much but <hes> i can definitely see how there are people that <hes> that don't like it as much you the season just started <hes> <hes> and now it just seems like you know the intentional break is here it's gonna slow teams down and then we have another one next month and i'm pretty sure there's another one in november it's it's pretty wild but regardless i hope everybody had agree weekend and nice football filled weekend has changed things up a little bit <hes> this week coming start with you know something i usually end the show with <hes> slots dugard news 'cause they're not playing but massaro massara transfers all right so everybody knows the last two seasons the premier league they changed up when their transfer window closes it's not in line with the rest of europe and now it just seems like they're going to go back to the date that all the other leagues in europe have been using i guess they thought that by them switching it would cause the other team or any other countries and leagues to switch but <hes> no one else went with it obviously it's better when all the leagues are on the same schedule <hes> i do understand why they did it you don't want player switching teams they play games james here for a team and then they get bought by another team and he just can throw off team chemistry so they want you know when the season starts they want that those players to be on that team i can totally understand that however i think that the all the teams in europe keeps teams all of the the leagues in europe need to get in line fine and you can't have you know different league starting at different times everybody should just decide to transfer window opens july first and then close it i dunno august fifteenth maybe i mean i think that's probably the best way to do it <hes> the only thing that would mess it up is that you have leagues do start their season at different times <hes> but there's gotta be some type of solution to it but we'll see what happens when you know the the <hes> primarily decides to <hes> to vote on it to decide whether they're going to go back or non appreciative though <hes> next up the neymar saga is over at least for now <hes> i guess there's a possibility that you know he may move on <hes> in the winter or this whole thing they started beginning next summer we'll see but as a right now neymar is in paris will be staying in paris <hes> at least for the next few months <hes> he played for brazil last week we did pretty good i mean i guess not playing football is is good for him you no he should be showed up <hes> he missed the copa america so percent playing brazil in a while but he actually did pretty good so we'll see if the how that translates when he goes and his playing paris again but <hes> you know paris they picked up a cardi from inter milan you know he was this caused issues interior him and his you know his wife which i don't really understand how his wife is even getting involved in you know team stuff i guess he's you yeah she's a media personality there in italy but they picked him up you know because they've had some some pretty significant injuries to imbaba and cavani so you know he's more of a <hes> like a backstop until they get healthy but then what happens when you have a healthy cavani and bobby neymar any cardi thirty what are you gonna do i mean somebody's somebody's gonna be coming off the bench or not playing at all so i guess we'll see <hes> stay with PS g they did a goalkeeper swap with real madrid so they sent <hes> erla to real madrid in exchange for killer nervous <hes> you know they haven't played games these teams i mean i think both are great great goalkeepers <hes> i guess we'll did you see how they go with their new teams once the international break is over so i don't know the interested to see those were <hes> swap was kind of weird i wasn't expecting to see that <hes> especially paris getting rid of ariola oriola i just didn't see that happening at all <hes> okay but now that this whole thing was neymars over i was thinking about how this is going to affect nick barcelona <hes> you know they seemed like they wanted him pretty bad they were you know trying every possible combination the cash and players to bring him back and what is that going to do to the players that they offered i mean continue is gone now but you know there are other players that they offered up up and now they're not leaving they're staying in barcelona's that can affect the changing room how's that going to affect their you know how they feel towards it's a team how the other players that were not offered up we're gonna feel towards these people that were potentially sacrificial lambs for name artic come back <hes> <hes> you know messy is still out <hes> they're not playing well at all right now <hes> we'll see hopefully they'll they'll bounce back after the international break but <hes> i don't know it seems like the whole neymar thing not only did it disrupt PSG but also potentially disrupted the chemistry of the barcelona team i mean we'll see i can say this with confidence though i am definitely definitely glad the transfer window all these rumors in this drama i'm so glad that it's over ooh <hes> okay so last week <hes> fico released its shortlist shortlist even though it's not a shortlist fifty five names on here of <hes> potentials for the fifa world eleven i'm going to go through this position by position and <hes> i we have the goalkeeper's we have <hes> allison from liverpool david from manchester the united edison from manchester city young old black from athletico madrid and marc andre torsten for barcelona it's a pretty solid group i can't think of anybody that got left out of that group i mean i'm sure there's you know maybe one or two but there's only five five positions on on the shortlist all right so next we'll go into the defenders as usual if i mess up any of these names i'm sorry gas can let me know how to same correctly directly defenders we got <hes> jordi alba from barcelona alexander arnold from liverpool dani alvarez from mm PSG slash sao paulo <hes> gel swallow from event slash manchester city <hes> daniel carver ya'll from madrid shalini from event <unk> virgil van dyke liverpool diego go dean athletico madrid slash inter milan joshua kimmage um biron munich laporte from manchester city delinked from IX slash ventas PK from barcelona sergio ramos real madrid andrew andrew robertson liverpool alexandro from you ventas tiago silva from PS g trophy l. rain from real madrid marcello also from real madrid kyle walker from man city and kelly bali from naples napoli midfielders sergio boost gets barcelona customer from madrid kevin debris reina manchester city christian eriksen tottenham hotspur frankie diong from i xe slash barcelona eden in hassard chelsea slash around madrid khantay chelsea tony crows from real madrid artem mellow from barcelona look a module from madrid popa from manchester united even wreckage barcelona bernardo silva man city todd each from i x and arturo of <unk> barcelona and for the forwards sergio guerrero manchester city cutting bentham a real madrid for menial liberal antoine from athletico how much did slash barcelona harry kane tottenham hotspur robert lindau ski by munich saudi-omani liverpool kilian mbappe para syndrome on leela messy barcelona neymar person john cristiano ronaldo events mohammed salah liverpool son from tottenham hotspur sterling for manchester city eh and luis suarez from barcelona so when i looked at this list i mean i i can't really think of anybody that off the top my head that uh overlooked i'm sure there you know there definitely are some you know there's limited spaces for you know the shortlists like i mentioned this list is not short but the one thing that i noticed about this list and danny elvis's only exception now every single a person on this list place for a team in europe except for dani alvarez who plays herself paulo but he's also the oldest person on the list and after after the season he had <hes> the season but the competition in the copa america it's hard to keep him off this list <hes> he's did year but i find it so hard to believe that there are no players playing their club football outside of europe that are not on this list i mean to me it just seems seems amazing like i said with the exception of danny elvis but he he just made that move to sao paulo and you you know he's what thirty six years old <hes> i i just find that hard to believe that on the shortlist there's no players for outside of both the start of the year i should say outside of europe but it's a good listener fair list we'll see you know how the final eleven looks i mean i'm sure it'll be pretty soon going to be some snow some people that are not happy with who got selected <hes> but all in all i would say it's a pretty good list <music> <music> let's take a look qualifying for euro twenty twenty <hes> last week i mentioned you know all the games that were coming they're playing two matchdays matchdays during the international breaks this go over the results in games that are coming up today tomorrow <hes> so for match day a five in group a we had kosovo hosting czech republic end to my surprise coastal win that game two to one which i mean you know i didn't get a chance to watch the game but <hes> i'm surprised that the coastal was able to beat the czech republic <hes> also a matchday five in group a we had <hes> england hosting bulgaria i mean there was never any doubt that <hes> that england was gonna win this game <hes> they won four zero so they have messy six which will be tomorrow on september tenth montenegro hussein took republican england hosting kosovo and i'm probably going to watch that that england kosovo game sure it'll be worth seeing so right now in group a <hes> england sitting on top nine points in three games kosovo's in second with eight point four games and czech republic's looks in third six points from four matches our group b. <hes> so we had lithuania hosting the ukraine <hes> us lithuania zero ukraine three i mean i think that's a result that everyone expected also actually five groupie we had serbia arbia to portugal for portugal they're the defending champions from euro twenty sixteen <hes> i mean they were i'm struggling it seemed a little bit before this before this match <hes> they had two points in two matches but now <hes> they're sitting second second five points in three matches and <hes> first place you have the ukraine who has thirteen points out of five matches is an group that's that's surprising <hes> messy six play tomorrow we got the luxembourg hosting serbia and lithuania hosting portugal are group's e <hes> messy five we had estonia hosting belarus the final score was estonia one belarus to the game that i watched and was definitely disappointed with the result and the play but but <hes> we had germany hosting headlines in hamburg and it was germany to the netherlands four now this is the third time i think they've if played each other in the last year <hes> it was it was a good game was really good <hes> i think the only like weak spots what's that germany had <hes> it did seem like i don't really want to compare it to that but there were times when it seems it was twenty players bunching around the ball almost like you know when you have like youth football in you know it's like under eights and all the kids want to go after the ball it seemed like there was some of that going on especially in the end of the first half <hes> but the two weeks spots that i thought certainly germany was manuel neuer i'm not sure why <unk> in was not starting <hes> not just not would he would he used to be i think a lot of people he's he's you know north of thirty but i think a lot of people are just holding onto the neuer that he used to be and he's not two thousand fourteen world cup noyer you know he's not the byron munich goalie that he was you know four five six years ago and also i mean he only only seventh game for germany seventh cap but ta ah the center back for labour kuzin man he had an own goal and then he had i don't know if he thought that he was trying to block a shot but it was like he had like flop to try to block a shot where i want to see it was <hes> frankie d. young scored <hes> he just he just did not play well i mean stuff like that happens but that other thing you have to watch it look at the <hes> the footage of it was just it was embarrassing to me to see <hes> <hes> you know maybe comparing him to you know who was also in the same game i don't know but <hes> he just did not perform well i mean he the add to my personal opinion two instances that led to goals i mean obviously the own goal but that second thing i i can't even explain what that was he's he's still young he's only twenty three years old the only his second or seventh cap for germany so you know he has a ways ago but and i'm sure he it can be a great player but i don't know i hate to say it but maybe they got rid of bought tanks little bit sooner than they should they should held onto him <hes> you know to have him back back there i don't know <hes> let's see matchday six group see tonight actually we have northern ireland hosting germany germany him belfast i'll definitely be watching that game and then we have estonia versus the netherlands <hes> i'll probably just get the phone on that one maybe look at some of the highlights so right now in group c we have northern ireland sitting on top <hes> they have not lost they have twelve points in four matches and then germany's in second with nine points four matches in the netherlands they have a six points over three matches so now all right group d <hes> the republic of ireland one switzerland one which is surprising it definitely thought that switzerland would win that game i understand that you know they were playing in dublin but definitely picked switzerland win that game in the other match matched i five <hes> in group d was gibraltar zero denmark six <hes> can't really say anything about that i mean gibraltar boulter i don't even know if they have a full-time players on their team i think some of the guys are like semi-professional but <hes> i mean it is what it is <hes> the c- from esi six <hes> we had was yesterday <hes> switzerland four gibraltar alters zero i mean that's an expected result and then georgia zero denmark zero which is surprising definitely thought denmark would <hes> would win net game but <hes> yes a group d they're done for the international break maybe they might have some friendlies between now and then <hes> but i'm not a hundred percent sure but <hes> group d sitting on top eleven points in five matches republic of ireland and second can't we have denmark nine point five matches and third with eight points in four matches is switzerland our group e so for matchday five wales to azerbaijan one and then slovakia zero croatia four four which i think i expected croatia to win that <hes> for matchday six which will be tonight you have other by john hosting croatia asia in croatia should win that new issues and then game is pretty hard to call i guess <hes> hungry hosting slovakia so i guess we'll see it can go either way <hes> right now group e standings we have <hes> in first place nine points and four matches is hungry and in second place also nine points in four matches croatia and then in third six points in four matches is wales oils are a group f match day five <hes> romania one spain to spain had some issues in this game i mean i think they just barely won this made just barely got out of there were three points i don't know what it was that romania was doing but it seemed like i don't know spain was frustrated by them they just they couldn't <hes> they couldn't get it going i only saw the highlights from this but <hes> you would think that spain would put a couple more goals against romania <hes> we also had norway to malta zero and then faroe islands zero sweden weeden for those last two are expected <hes> matchday six happened yesterday <hes> romania mania won multiple zero again i would have thought that romania would score some goals against multi not not the same thing bad about the smaller teams but she just don't <unk> expect them to <hes> you know be able to hold much against the some of the bigger teams in europe <hes> next we had sweden one norway one and then spain four faeroe islands zero so they're done for international break in group f first place undefeated eighteen points in six matches we have spain second-place eleven points in six matches we have sweden and then in third with ten points and six matches is romania are a group g match day five so it israel one north macedonia won slovenia to poland zero which is surprising to me because i definitely thought to pull him would have at least scored a goal dole definitely think they were gonna lose this one <hes> and last messy five yet australia's six lab zero <hes> matchday matchday six tonight so we have selena hosting israel poland hosting austria which should be a pretty decent game and then latvia hosting north macedonia so right now group g <hes> sitting on top of the table <hes> poland in first place they have twelve points and five matches austrian second with nine point five matches in slovenia eight points in five matches in third place all right group eight matchday five we had iceland three moldova zero <hes> turkey one endure zero i definitely thought turkey would put up a few more goals against dora and then france for albania one this is a game they had some issues with the national anthem being played and then there's some other mistakes with identifying the team is i think it was armenia <hes> i don't know just just issues you know this happens we've seen in the past where teams have played the wrong national anthem i don't think it's anything intentional but the fans can get a little rowdy all right so messed a six which play <hes> tomorrow moldova hosting turkey france hosting hosting and dora and then abadia hosting iceland and standings group age we have in first place <hes> twelve points and five matches france dance <hes> in second place also twelve points by matches turkey and in third place also with twelve points the matches is iceland it's gonna be a tough group will see i'm expecting france to win though our group i matchday five cyprus one kazahkstan one scotland one russia to san marino zero belgium four i think all those games went the way that you would expect them to <hes> they have their cally six matches tonight it'll be scotland hosting belgium san marino hosting cyprus and then russia hosting kazakhstan and as the table sits right now we we have belgium who have not lost the fifteen points on five matches russian second with twelve points in five matches and then 'cause don in third seven points in five matches all right and the last group our group j <hes> so mass day five we head armenio one italy three and i watched but pretty decent part of this game it was one one in armenia was down to ten men italy seem to be struggling with them and then i got up to go to the bathroom or get something to drink and i came back and it was it was three one so you know obviously they figured get out whatever their issues were but armenia was definitely <hes> you know holding their own and maybe confusing italy a little bit <hes> than we had finland and one greece zero and bosnia herzegovina five liechtenstein zero yes all those games ended the way you would think i mean you know greece stared kind of weird sometimes sometimes they show up sometimes they don't <hes> messy six they had yesterday it was armenian four bosnian-hercegovina go to greece one listens nine one never would've saw that and then finland one italy to art so now the standings group jay we got italy in first place they've lost eighteen points in six matches finland in second and <hes> they have twelve points in six matches and then surprisingly armenia in third place nine points in six matches so not too bad next mass days next to will be next month in october <hes> <hes> so the US <hes> they're having to friendly's during the international national break i mentioned that last week they played one of them they played against a mexico game was in new jersey and mexico one that easily three zero zero i don't know what that says about the US men's team it seemed like they were experimenting a little <hes> but you know mexico's always a tough opponent you can try new things against mexico but they're always going to be a formidable team <hes> there was going to give the US problems they always do sar biggest rival full as well so <hes> US game tomorrow in saint louis playing against uruguay the problem living here in germany is the game start take two three o'clock in the morning so i usually never get to see them <hes> i usually just watch the <hes> the replays or the highlights depending but i am interested to see that game against uruguay see if the US comes out with the same team or not luckily it's only friendly's not doing any qualifying yet <hes> whenever the international break comes up you know especially over the last few years the first thing that i started thinking about automatically is the world cup in twenty twenty two and how it is going to absolutely disrupt all of the league's here in europe now the MLS and i'm sure that mexican league not too big of a deal <hes> because they their schedules a little bit off especially the the MLS 'cause their season ends <hes> i think it's early november or late october so it won't be an issue but the twenty twenty two world all cup starts november twenty first i believe it goes to december eighteenth so for like you know the big leagues in europe all of them i mean anushka completely throw everything off <hes> i haven't seen anything about how you know like the bundesliga or the premier league especially how they're planning on making adjustments or changes <hes> issues the world cup's during the summer so most of the teams are off or you know the second level second division asian teams there in training so it's not that big of a deal and i'm wondering are the the second level teams or second level leagues in europe are they going to continue to play during the world cup or is you know these associations are gonna completely like freeze their operations just four more to focus on the world cup but then obviously not every country's gonna make it to the world cup so i don't know this whole winter world cup thing which i'm still a little upset about 'cause you know the US lost somehow to qatar for the twenty twenty world cup i'm not salty about that because you know we got the twenty twenty six but <hes> i just think that it's going to mess everything up it's throwing everything off completely and for what i dunno now to play the biggest game in one of the smallest countries in the world while i do think that everybody should be entitled to host the world cup they did bid for or a summer world cup they did not bid for a winter world cup <hes> i'm sure they're gonna put on an amazing broke up i mean <hes> sure that it's going to be great regardless because it has has to be a can't be anything less than spectacular imperfect because there's so many doubters like myself that they have to prove wrong that they have to put on an amazing being an absolutely amazing world cup so i am excited to see it

You're here welcome everybody to see our podcast. This is chris hoyt with career crossroads. <hes> and i've got with me of course one of our new managing directors a. r. lars schmidt large. How're you chris some good buddy. It's going to be here with you yeah. Yeah i always love when we get a chance to connect and i'm really excited about sort of pumping coming up. A little bit of the volume in terms of podcasts bring a really great talent to that and i think it's gonna be really good for six and of course for our our myriad of listeners out there. Hey thanks buddy. I know when we <hes> we a hook onto a topic we can go. We can run so i'm excited to <hes> to dive into a range of things with you. Well you know what i want to talk about today lars. What are you gonna talk about. Nobody lars. I want to talk about job description. Do we have three hours in this podcast. This is going to be a series. This is part one yeah part part one of about one hundred and each one of them is gonna address a different issue that continues to come up with job descriptions or job postings. Yes yes yeah. That sounds good. Welcome to <unk> one yeah so you know the reason this one's a hot hot topic from your hot button for for me and you and i were talking about at this <hes> a little bit earlier but you know at career crossroads we do a series of meetings every year and there's always a topic focus right and one of my favorites of course because of my background background is the recruitment marketing branding and last year <hes> at our marketing branding there was not a single exercise or event activity that we did within the meeting where the topic topic of communication with candidates did not continually come up and what was really interesting right what was really interesting this year is that the topic of job hop descriptions no matter what we were talking about the topic of job descriptions came up every single time interesting not not surprising but interesting yeah we we could be talking about <hes> you know diversity inclusion job descriptions came up. We could have been talking about the topic of communications. The job descriptions came up. We do a session at the end. Where say hey what did we get into job. Descriptions came up and we certainly got into it but apparently we didn't go. I mean it's a hidden topic. It's something people are passionate about and i think for good reason i think it's it's the least evolved tool that we have in recruiting which boggles my my mind because we made so many advances in so many areas yet. We're still writing job descriptions like we did when they were printed in their applications were faxed in oh. My god had they suck. Why do they still suck. We're going into twenty twenty and job description still suck yeah. I yeah i don't i'd love to have a good answer for that. I don't think we see pockets pockets of innovation and i think we can we see examples of companies that are kind of reinventing how they think about it and and designing it and and kind of you know right who has written four but for the most part those are outliers you know most of the job description ju just retreads of how they've been written for <hes> decades. Oh yeah well don't you don't even get me started on who owns them right because it runs usually ranges from comp <hes> to some poor coordinator. That's you know that sort of in a gifted or volatile that they're going to be rewriting some of these hosted. It's insane and then get into formatting. <hes> i think one of the job descriptions that was shared with us recently and i'm not making this up. It was forty two bullet points. There was no it was no intro <hes> there was no sales pitch right. There was no here's our brand. His our people our culture <hes> there was no personalization to it was there wasn't even a call to action at the end. It was just forty two things that apparently somebody. He's somewhere thought you needed to know about that job. Before you of course couldn't wait to apply i wanted. I wanted to spend some time with the author of agile ship showed like once there. They fired up when they finished it. They get it done like this is a masterpiece. Look at all this great ted. I have like i've got to get solid gold candidates. I imagine them ripping. Bring the paper from the typewriter and growing. They're throwing the paper down and seeing this as it nailed this. Is it this yeah. I think i think so. I think so and sadly nobody check that person. Nobody said wait a minute. This is the worst thing you could possibly put them internet. Well not the worst thing this. Is you know there's a lot of bad things that they're that. This is a very bad thing. These are we'll put this in the top forty seven bad thing yeah the internet but they're usually there too long. <hes> <hes> they're long winded <hes> they don't usually represent the company or actually the role in any type of engaging fashion and and i think that's just such a big miss especially when you know in the last ten years lars you and i know this <hes> just as well as anybody the evolution of an employment branding team or marketing manager within talent acquisition and of course in the last five years where we've really seen <hes> an entrance into our space of people coming into t._a. Who don't have ta backgrounds but who who who can oh my gosh get ready for it. Who can write well not owning. These just still blows my mind. Well i think the way when you look at how they're written <hes> most most times the the general format hasn't evolved. You know it's a boilerplate about the company. It's a paragraph overview job. It's a long list of bullets responsibility. The is a laundry list of bullets for qualifications an e._s._e. Statement and if you look across all job descriptions i would venture to guess that about eighty percent of white and find fit fit that exact template and there's so many problems with that but i think one that is we don't focus on enough as as much as we talk about in recruiting <hes> we have to be mobile optimized for everything and you have to have a responsive website and you have to have a a streamlined application process then you throw the job description that takes one hundred scrolls on a mobile device to get through all the content like nobody's gonna do that. Nobody wants to sit through and absorb orb all of those words for a job. They're just not going to do it. Yeah lars erik karaoke guy aren't you. You didn't say good carioca. I know what's so not to call you out specific. I think you're great care yogi person. I think we've we've done a few songs together but i think my point is not everyone. Everyone should be a karaoke singer kind of feel this right. I kind of feel the same way about writing a job description. Writing is a talent or skill. That's got to be developed and man just not everybody everybody can or should even be writing or trying to tackle those those job postings they shouldn't and i think the other thing that is the frustration of mind is so many job descriptions are are written for the company right. It's you know you'll you'll need this like. We know we need this. We need that. We need this all all selfish. It's all us. It's like they never take the chance to say okay well. Who's reading this and like how are they going to want to understand the role and the requirements and like how is this job description get allow them start envisioning themselves in this job or not and and that's that's a really important piece that they they rarely think about so. It's another. There's so many easy things. Companies can do to have their job. Descriptions stand out and even just from a copy stamp one and not even touching aesthetics which is a right in terms of <hes> just the text heavy format of most job descriptions in a world where everything is a dynamic micro site at except for job descriptions. Oh yeah well you know. I've always felt really good about asking people in the job description if they're self starter. I think that's probably one of my favorite skills that i look for in a candidate. Is you know if you're a self starter. This is the job few that essop tried to breezy hillock if you if you don't have good communication skills and you read that bullet requirement you're not gonna apply and that's great because we only want good communicators in in this job. You must be a good community and you you raise another really good point right is talking about the tough stuff in the g._d. Or the job posting the tough huff the hard the hard things to swallow in the job description or within the role because you know. I don't think enough companies willing to put in their j._d.'s that you know what we don't always only work forty hours a week <hes> we sometimes we can be in a challenging a more traditional environment. We don't always move at the speed of light. I think it being a little more transparent about some of the challenges in the hurdles or the words is going to allow some candidates to opt out and quite frankly. I think that's a good thing yet. You know it's funny. I probably three years ago now. I was working with the client and i was helping them. Redesign their job descriptions and i was basically i was the owner of the project ah gray at some like all right. They wanted to completely rebuild it unlike art. We're going to do that and i had a section in there around why you should not take this job and i they kind head of looked like i had three heads and then i explained the rationale. I'm like look this was. This was still in the early days when employer brand is all about entirely focused on selling the sizzle right we sold all the shit out of our companies to try to get people as many people in the pipeline and we didn't we only share the highlights. We didn't share any of the realness about the job. I think the the field of employer brand is move that way more now where we realized that it's more about creating more informed candidates so they can better make their own kind of opt in or opt out decision mm-hmm based on the realities of the job. Will you put that job description together. They founded the quality of candidates spiked because they were getting people who are really really it was a it was a well known brand. It was a sexy brand so that alone attracted tons of applicants and when they started putting a section in there saying why you shouldn't apply to this job <hes> those applications applicants dip but they were much more targeted and i think that i'd love to see more of that job descriptions because i think when you can be honest and you can be real and no no company is flawless. It's no company is perfect and so if you can't just open up a bit more about the realities that organization you're going to get people that are making kind of half-cocked decisions because they don't really understand <hes> as much as they could about the organization. Well i agree and i think you know you've got an interesting at large companies got really interesting challenge with recruiters where they're they're measured measured on speed right. They're not always measured on quality candidate or retention of candidate or how that candidate or or that employees rated after they've started so usually it's truly about you you know how fast can they get some meat in the <hes> and the trouble with that as when we've got these large funnels <unk> in my humble but correct opinion <hes> you've got recruiters the that are often running and providing slates that are the ten <hes> last qualified people not necessarily the ten most qualified <hes> and i know oh that's a management issue and a piece but i i gotta think the job descriptions and poorly delivered job descriptions and generically written job descriptions <hes> our our big part of that puzzle yeah i think you're right and i think this this whole notion of hiring for speed and hiring philosophy loss in that being a measure that which recruiters evaluated that's going to be another episode for us because that's such the wrong way to measure the impact and success of your recruiters because when you when you build all of your incentives around and speed qualities out the door and not to say i mean look all recruiters want to hire good people. They want to bring the best possible person in for the role but if you're putting among artificial pressure on them just put again meeting the seat hit hiring targets. That's what you're going to get and that pressure is what dilutes the candidate pool what's dilutes salutes here at the and then you kind of blame the recruiters that hey you're not going to be great. People will look. You're on me if i don't have somebody at an offer stage within thirty days it just incentivizes the wrong behavior abra my mind and i think that's certainly a topic for future podcasts. We'll go deeper on yeah. I think you and i both manage recruiters. <hes> you know in in our history and another lies within recruiting and i think you absolutely get what you pay for what they're held accountable for so look. I i guess bottom line for me is job. Postings really do provide great opportunities for people to personalized personalized the company <hes> and those openings to potential candidates to potential hires and while there might be an argument that job postings go away entirely a <hes>. I think a lot of us can agree that even when that conversation started some four five six years ago that the just not going anywhere anytime soon in fact they might even be around around until maybe two or three days after job boards di which is also another other podcast but yeah i think i think we're still stuck on how and why right how and why do do we humanize those job postings to attract engage and retain the best fit right the people that are the best fit for the company and i just love to know <hes> what some of the folks folks are doing about it yeah. We'll look to be honest. I think that's probably where we stopped using the term war for talent and since that's is obviously the saying that can't be killed and about optimistic. I think the reality what is this is what i would challenge listeners to kind of the way that they should view your job description. Your job description is your most important employer brand asset. It's the most seen asset it's going the have the most eyeballs it's going to have the most engagement so treated that way treated as an employer brand asset because that's exactly what it is and i think you're going to get a much higher quality of candidate <hes> <hes> that is much more on target with what you're looking for and what the environment can support nailed. It couldn't agree more lars. Thanks so much for cutting out some time today. I'm glad we got connect on this topic. It's one obviously we've got some experience and passion around and we can certainly talk trash about all day long likewise chris.

The Porn Reboot Podcast Episode 41: Porn Addiction and Testosterone

"Welcome to the porn reboot podcast where you get practical tips to gain control over your porn or sex diction. I'm your host Jay MAC, certified sex and porn addiction recovery. Coach today. We're going to speak briefly on your hormone levels, specifically testosterone and your recovery in my seven years of working with men who are struggling with porn, addiction and other sexually compulsive disorders. I found that many men young and old alike have really low testosterone levels like ridiculously low. The thing is to stop thrown is such an important hormone for men it regulates Steuer certain extent, your sex drive, your energy levels, how you feel feelings of wellbeing, and when you have low testosterone levels, you're not going to be motivated, you frequently going to feel depressed and down you. You into experience fatigue. And you're also going to have problems having erections. The interesting thing is that many of the symptoms of low testosterone overlap with the symptoms of porn and masturbation addiction. It's very important to get your testosterone levels checked, even if you're in your twenties, get them checked because in our society today, especially for those of us who live in western countries. There are so many things that destroy out star strong levels from the food. We eat a processed food to what we Storrow food in plastics to what we put in our body. I'll shampoos our lotions hour face screams, our aftershave gels all these things contribute to low testosterone as well. As all mindsets. We don't live in a society that celebrates any sort of expression of masculinity. Things that raise your testosterone level, psychologically such as winning having sex on a regular basis. Those things actually raise your testosterone level, many of these things including lifting heavy weights and building muscle. Those are not things that are celebrated by many men. And if you're a man who lives in fear, if you're a man who experiences a lot of stress a man who experiences, very high levels of things -iety, physically you're not going to be optimizing your testosterone levels. I'll say it again. It's very important to get your testosterone levels checked because you do not want to spend four five six years trying to recover from your porn addiction based on your symptoms when you are actually experiencing the symptoms of low testosterone levels. They are various ways to do. This many men have come to me and explained symptoms during our first call, and I tell them dude, go get. Your hormone levels checked get immense hormone panel. That's what is called on get your testosterone levels checked. I've met some men whose this Australian levels were into toilet. I'm going to do two things for you in the description below the different places that you can get your testosterone levels checked and measured. Wherever you go. I suggest that you get both your free testosterone level, and your total testosterone level checked and in the description of the podcast. I'm going to leave a link to a website way. You can actually compare your testosterone levels are right now to what they should be for someone at your age on average. Now, most men go to their doctor and get the testosterone levels checked. And then the doctor tells them. It's normal. It's important to understand that normal. These days has been adjusted so because the Austrian levels of for men in North America have been dropping over the past couple of decades doctors just go ahead and adjust it to what the average is now and average to stall stone level of a man who is in his mid twenties in two thousand and nineteen is the same as detest hostile levels of a man who was in his sixties in the nineteen thirties and nineteen forties. That's crazy. So it's important to do that. If it's the different ways, you can do with many at home to sauce thrown tests that you can take or you can go to primary care physician and get one tested. But please do followed the link to the resource that I've shared with you in the podcast description on to. Get an accurate read of way, you stand in terms of your levels. If you're over the age of thirty five, and you have below average testosterone levels alot testosterone levels, there is an advantage to it. And this might sound strange. But what you think is your sex drive is actually not your sex drive. If you have low testosterone levels, you're actually propelled in fueled by your addiction, you'll compulsive behavior your need to medicate, whatever issues, you may have whether it is pain or stress or unresolved conflict without pornography. You are actually unable to get turned on your unable to have sex. But you don't know the difference between a flat line, which is having no sexual urges do to your brain rewiring, which is a part of the recovery process and low testosterone. I it's a little funny and sad. It's a tragic comedy situation. But in a weird way, it's also an advantage because you will feel that you are flat lining, which means having no sex drive for quite a while while you're in recovery. So when you're no longer masturbating, and you're no longer watching pornography, you'll have low testosterone levels, and you will not feel any urges to masturbate. You won't feel any attractions. Woods other women. Nothing will be working for you. And what I've noticed from working with numerous clients is that many men over the age of thirty five actually okay with that. Because they just want freedom from that behavior. They want freedom from the guilt and shame. You may be married. You may have kids. So you just want to focus on your career and take care of your family and not be out there object defying and sexualizing. Every a woman you see during this process. The rare occasions that you have in erection on you can have sex with your wife. I believe it's very important when you're going through the recovery process to understand what flat lining is and to explain that to your partner if you are in a committed sexual relationship, so that she understands that your low sex drive is not because you're no longer attracted to her because he don't want to have sex with her you want her to understand that this is just a normal part of recovery, and that you will return to your normal erections if it's been so long since you had a normal erection because of your porn addiction. I want to assure you that you can Rick. Cover. You can regain normally wreck shins. You can regain your attractions, yo partner. It's time. You follow a system you understand how porn induced erectile dysfunction works, and you understand the different things that you need to do. To heal your brain and rewire now, obviously having low testosterone and flat lining is not ideal. And it's not what I recommend. I'm just mentioning that. It may turn out to be an advantage. If you are in that situation, the benefit is that you have something that's in the last part of my addiction cycle, a lot of addiction cycles out there, focus on how you get triggered. And how you move into your acting out behavior and the porn reboots addiction cycle. We end that addiction cycle with time. That means that the time you have when you are not watching pornography. And when you are not masturbating is very important. Most guys have time. And what that means. Is you go through these periods of time. Let's say three months or six months or eight months all almost a year where. You don't watch pornography? But then you get to a certain point where you binge watch it and all those negative feelings come up again. So when men speak to me, and they say, I don't have a problem with pornography masturbation per se, I can actually go for many months without watching pornography, all masturbating. But when I do it's insane. It's I feel terrible. And I feel like I'm completely out of control. So I asked them you have all this time. What did you do with that time when you were not acting out that one month that two weeks that four months where you are not watching and masturbating what were you doing? And they asked me. Well, what do you mean? What was I doing? I was living my life. You know, I was going to work. I was taking care of my family. I was engaging in my hobbies. I was trying to date. I was doing this and doing that. But because you were living your life and not doing anything to develop. The coping skills to manage the pain, which may be your trigger to act out and watch pornography and masturbate that time is important. That is the time you used to work on the things that didn't work out for you. Because if you're paying and so for men who have low testosterone, you have time during that flat line where you can't tell the difference between a flat line and low testosterone that is time for your brain to rewire, and for you to work on other aspects of your recovery to build up your self care to understand to create and reinforce strong boundaries to work on aspects of your personality that may have been changed by a compulsive behavior with porn, and masturbation. A lot of men put a lot of emphasis on how terrible the flat line is j k I don't feel anything. I don't have any sex drive. Nothing is happening in my life sexually I get it. I understand it can be problematic. If you are under the age of thirty five or if you are at the age of thirty five and older, and perhaps you're in a new relationship or you're with a partner who has a high sex drive in needs to have sex with with you regularly to feel that the relationship is healthy. So when you have a flat line, it's it's no fun. When you're in that situation. But if you are already in a situation where you're not having sex with your partner regularly because of your compulsive behavior or because you have low testosterone, then it's not going to make much of a difference. That's the reality. The good news is that you can use that time period to allow your brain to rewire and do it's. Thing. It's going to take a while. I've seen men who move past their flat line and a couple of weeks. But in most cases, it took them a few months to be honest. It took them about a month, two months. And I've also seen men that it took them up to six seven months, and even more that is rare. But I have seen it in those few months, you can achieve some amazing things you can work on your focus. You can find out what strong emotions you're unable to control like anger or sadness or frustration. You can learn new coping skills to deal with stress you can work on whatever. Trauma? You have or unresolved conflicts. You can get rid of a lot of the shame and guilt that you've experienced from acting out because you're no longer acting out. And when you do that, you eliminate those feelings of loneliness, and those deep intimacy needs that need for intimacy that you have even if you have a partner because you feel that you're not worthy of love. Because if you'll be aviator that feeling of not being worthy of being loved gums. From your shame and guilt, which has accumulated over the years. So the time you have when you're not acting out is the time that you can use to work on that. If you're listening to this and you're doing that already. That's good for you. If you're struggling with pornography and yoga to work with a professional or do this on your own, whichever. The case may be just bear in mind that you may have low testosterone levels, and you want to eventually have high testosterone levels, not average or optimal levels, you want to be a high testosterone, Matt, but that can also threaten your recovery because when you raise your testosterone levels during your recovery and your sex drive goes up as a result of that. Then you put yourself at a risk for a slip because every time you experience any peak in your sex drive in the past your pattern has always been to masturbate a watch pornography because you haven't developed the tools to manage your sex drive. An example is some men who start working with me. And I suspect that they have low T, I send them together. A hormone panel done and they come back in there. Like, yeah, you're right. You know, by testosterone levels at levels of eighty year old man. So they get on first of all they usually changed yet diet and lifestyle. And then they take another test to see that test Allstone levels go up, but if after making natural lifestyle changes and taking supplements that doesn't change many of them get onto sauce. Join replacement therapy. And when this has happened in the past using recovery. We've noticed that the recovery process becomes a lot more challenging because of what I mentioned earlier a highest sex drive that you don't know how to manage. So what's the solution to this? What do you do if you find yourself in that dilemma the bottom line is every man over the age of twenty who lives in the western world should get his social levels checked? We put so many hormone destroying things into our bodies. Whether we like it or not. For my brothers in other countries who might be listening to this. If you eat, well, if you eat clean if you put natural products in your body good for you. But if you eat a lot of processed food, if you are overweight, if you put all sorts of things into your body, get your levels checked, and is you're over the age of thirty five which I classify a quote, unquote, older guy. No offence to anyone and you take this dossier contest, and it shows that you have low testosterone levels. There are many options for you. You can get stoned replacement therapy, but my recommendation when you are in recovery is to change your lifestyle. I because that will naturally raise your testosterone levels in a stable way. And in a way that works with the timeline off recovery when you're trying to stay off pornography, and masturbation and rewire your brain. So what this? Means is that instead of introducing an external source of testosterone into your body. The results that you can get very for some men their sex drive goes up some men report general feelings of well being but indicates of men who are recovering you can start out by losing weight. You can start out by increasing your muscle mass eating cleaner, more organic food less or no processed food getting enough sleep reducing stress in your life, having more sex peaks, having sex increases, your testosterone levels temporarily. If you're not in a position to have sex, for whatever reason, it's not the end of the world. But I do think that if you are in a committed relationship or in a relationship where sexist and option I do recommend having sex trying to have sex and putting aside. Zayed's that you have about performing in your erections many times when we struggle with point induced erectile dysfunction. There is so much fear that we generate and that fear is connected to your ego. Because you don't want to put yourself in a situation where you say, you can perform you imply you can perform by body language or your words, but you can't do it. It is important to have sex and to work on it having sex triggers, a lot of very healthy, neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that help you feel great and help you reduce stress. If you take a test, and you find out that you have low testosterone levels don't freak out, you know, set of dates to have another test about ninety days from when you found out what your levels are. And in the meantime, stopped doing the things that I recommended to raise your testosterone levels naturally. And seriously make the decision to end your point us and regulate your masturbation, ideally, ended completely for a couple of months. So that you can rewire your brain reboots and be free of pornography. That's the episode for today. I'm Jay your brother and his struggle. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to this episode of the porn reboot podcast. I'll talk to you. So.

PDA My my podcast ibew looking forward to a bit nervous but now growing up just playing in the streets really kicking a foodie around throwing a bowl we used to take down the fence between myself and my neighbor's house leave a bit up in the middle and play tennis I had no idea I think I just I just wanted to be to be good at something and academically I wasn't wasn't the the broadest keen but always worked hard there's plenty of activities to do in game supply on your imagination runs wild when you were a kid what did you think you were going to do when you grow up audio is like that too so yeah no it's it's exciting that it's that it's happening and neither we're we're pumped where ready to roll and it'll be fun and you know the lots of different people had might to indigenous I best friends who were Filipino Vietnamese Samoan Tongan so we had a lot of fun lots of young girls now and young boys who who can watch women women play on TV which is really exciting to the fact that young boys can actually see women on the on the a lot of young girls probably didn't think that that was achievable for them so Yarmuk shifted enormously in the last kind of four or five years now I guess it's a mixture of exciting but scary at the same time you know there's a lot of responsibility that comes with it we've got a responsibility to leave the game in shape he was nowhere I was that grew up around letter talented sports people and just you know you make you earn fund you know life is full of all of the good things you don't need money and then yeah realized e seven that I really wanted to go to university I didn't know what I wanted to do but was I knew I wanted to go so yeah without pay for long periods of times quit their job just to go and play play footsie and I'm sure it's the same across a whole range of other sports you know having to fundraise for women's teams to go away and models growing up with all all male and you know a loved watching Preston Gamble and Maddy Bowen runaround I was just too deadly and you know they were too many will they will and and then coming from an indigenous family average show on family it's part of our culture I think it's imbed Innis to to love Rugby League boys debuts on podcast probably like debuts footy I'm mentioning just those nerves Iquique Nian rated eh run on the field and give it your best yeah absolutely it's always don't under fencepost dad was in the army for years and years and years so yeah that was always an option to so do you think the looking forward that you may not have thought of sport as a future career Taymor you nodded because we understand we know each other's backgrounds and stories because that's often the success of a team on the field is how well it set up behind the scenes and the business lots of female athletes at the time but they weren't really you know portrayed in the media will you know it's hard to I guess the saying it's had to be something if you can't see it so crazy how much it's developed how does it feel to be amongst that way of you know women being professional sports people at a time like to like it Um you turn on the TV now and you can see women's sport every day almost so and that's like with us now we start out w season this Saturday so yet the big driving force in your training and your desire to play all absolutely I think I I come across quite chilled and reserved and things like that the an insane that too we've got a lot of girls on the Sydney roosters teams who non-indigenous but they they love it they embrace culture and where the same you know we've got lots of certainly sounds exciting would be quite unusual to have such a high population of indigenous people and across the table that had all kinds of levels so nice to hear we've you know we got it from the girls who who came before us they fought hard for the opportunities that we have today in on the plan groups that I just saw grateful that we got these opportunities you know get out of my compensation completely new city new team new challenges in itself just just playing with different people who open otherwise tames over the years and it definitely was a good chance to to reconnect with some of those girls and it's always nice to play with gills with comedy they are coming about and they wouldn't have happened without the gills who who fought so hard for so long you know the stories of Gilles haven't to to sell the House and take dying to we've just enjoy each other's company enjoyed working hard and we could have first game against the New Zealand warriors Saturday millburn which will be a big game for us the Queensland hate a little bit but night just it's been awesome the Sydney Roosa- Roosa- such an amazing club I've been finding the culture is amazing I think just the culture of the club organization I'm plays and how they were together and that just makes winning on the field so much easier how much do you love to win talk to throw myself completely in the end hopefully a swim and sink but we'll find out saying I'm sure you will because you're not only fabulous play but also let's go to Netanyahu Tongan and Samoan was asking about family story and and things like that too so it's a really good blend of culture and diversity and yeah I think it great later and you've captains captained tames before and you're laid younger players and we can kind of already sense that in your person as well as soon as you uh underneath I'm I'm always wanting to to win and to do better and to improve to challenge myself and I think that's part of the reason I made the move down from from Brisbane was just too I think that's just something that was just inheriting kind of within me because of them because of my upbringing which I'm so grateful for having to have to on the surface especially but underneath I'm really really competitive like super super super competitive I'll try not to let the exterior kind of you know it and portray that kind of walked in here that kind of camera shoring ladyship kind of vibe that you give off is that has always been with you have you always been later let you down in Sydney during bang he and how you feeling about you know running on the field this Saturday and the new season yet loving Sydney with living over in could that really influences the culture of Club in is probably quite attractive in you coming down to join it yet definitely lock played with a few of the Gills in the indigenous allston journeys and and goals and stories and things like that and we always have have a laugh and a Yang after before Trianon sometimes during trying to but you know it's good because we just we just enjoy each other's company Klay with Rick Steiner coach never been coached by before so you know that was really attractive for me to come down here and just throw myself completely out of my comfort zone and I loved Montana TV yes super exciting and so you kicking off this Saturday so you know pre existing you've moved down from Brisbane we'll talk about coins Land New South Wales a horrific ankle break a few years ago which was really tricky to to kind of overcome but since then I've been Struggling I think with my body but the last housing team to be a part of but yeah for me she twenty nine hundred was kind of a year where I thought Oh let's just let's just challenge myself and I think that's the only way I would have improved take them under my wing when they need it but also I think it's it's nice to learn from some young players too because you you get a bit caught up sometimes in the day to day life and those young girls top but we always had that that really strong and mom and dad instilled in me a real desire to always work cod things aren't going to be handed to you that you've gotTa Work Work Work and so it's kind of like a three and a half hour block of training in an afternoon and we doing that three to four times a week at the moment and yet it's pretty it's pretty awesome it's a little the people around me and what does preseason look for those out there that don't know I'd love to know what what is your lifestyle lack at how do you prepare to run on the field the at the moment so it's tough over there you know being beachside and now but we're so grateful to to be able to be you know be here in the weather's a bit code for the season also a lot of running it's a lot of running running there's a lot of running we've had a really big strength and conditioning focus so two hours head in stride over to the Jim Jim Session for an Ala maybe doing a bit of media role catching up with the coach for a quick chat or something like that so why they look after everyone within the club is something that I've I've really enjoyed you know we've got six oh seven aboriginal torture on the Gills in India team a strength and conditioning snapshot into what what the boys have to have to go through all the men have to go through every week so we're enjoying it and how you feeling physically Pretty good pretty good I I had did I share a little bit about me and my husband's a former rugby plan and he's still into the whole recouping and training here invincible and you can keep flying forever but yeah now I'm in my mid twenties I'm kind of like Oh this is this hurts this is hard mid twentieth of my good yeah you could be anything from you know a couple of cases session to lots of kilometers through the legs indecision but because it's such a shortened season we've got a forward six six to twelve months has been really good and you know we've daughter and stuff around sports science and recovery and how to take care of your body when I was younger I used to justice really reinvigorate you in and just teach you to appreciate every moment so it's a nice learning process from I think myself as a later but also I'm just continuously learning every day from doc but yeah could look going to work and then going training maybe doing a bit of video review jumping onto the field during a session for an hour and a half in-car cheese horseradish fellow one of one of coaches our assistant coach Adam he's a he's a corey philosophy you know we've got a really good mix of cultures but in bronchitis last she absolutely loved it and like you said we had the culture that really breeds success and that was what we had last year at the Bronson I loved it was such an amazing grace season so we go to cram everything into that for four weeks asked offer amazing and tailoring it to what we need to do and accomplish that that particular consistently so there's a way stretching going on the House of Rolling I'm he's bullies aren't automatic boots so that you can do those every day and guns so I totally yeah it's been a challenge but back now and do you have big family Adriano huge families I'll go to mixed blended family so nora and now that I'm getting getting older in the body getting a little bit more seasoned it's yeah it's really important so I'm feeling good feeling fresh and ready to go on MOMS Panama is mixed family he's one of four as well so we've got big family on both sides so yeah no it's good really prepared for everything as well and that's probably what happened to me is physically I felt good but mentally it took me probably till until the end of the two thousand sixteen season two to flee God but then I I kind of thought ahead to what the next nine to twelve months would look like after that and it was just a range of Rehab Hospital Appointments Follow Up Appointments ankle two weeks later so question yourself your ability if you're going to get back what what that looks like if it's going to take you know I'm months twelve months fourteen months for you week before I thought I'll just get a couple more minutes under my belt have a bit of a threat you know throw the footy randomly and yet went to score a try scored the try which was awesome but console for absolutely everything but no I love it I love being you know they for some of the younger players I love being able to reassure them and and into how you felt at the time and what kind of helped you get through that hard time yeah always always soupy got it was supposed to make my Queen Origin Dipoto in two thousand fifteen being a game be present in a game but if I didn't have like I said well my family's been huge for me yeah friends family got me through that entire process take care of your body does he get Outta yeah definitely luck always used to laugh when people would be like oh you need to stretch will go and do some iago going to pilates and You know as a kid yeah just want to do the Jersey and my family prabhjot just metais might as well you know we work so hard the last four weeks especially it's been a it's been a really steep learning curve lots of training nine weeks entitled and a week Stout of week five now so yeah about halfway through the journey not too long to go and just can put that down to just let family upbringing that connection with culture and how that shape man you know my parents were really hard work is like like you said we you know we did it we did it pretty tissue also I was also the other day actually I am I don't think I are kind of new or realize that maybe did possess a few of these leadership qualities but I probably that I can say from conversations husbands that she determination like we've got plenty of talented kids what takes that next level is that you know putting in the hot weather tom you know very nervous about the club's really rich history and it's nice at the the women are such a huge part of the club culture at the moment which is awesome so you're listening to the real podcast series in this episode I'm chatting with Proud Tar Stratton Island woman and Sydney roosters Rugby League player to lay Shahada N- hate she was never going to be caught in a Roosters Jersey but I think of think of convinced she's she's still not happy about it but that's all right that's the way so yeah I think that's probably one putting pressure on myself because you know I've been given this this amazing opportunity and I don't want to let anyone down yeah Brooke Burke dislocated just destroyed my ankle in the process so short term it was just really getting missed out on that but origin debut was really day in day out and having that strong mentality to you know to obey the later that you need to be on and off the field so all the best for the Games coming up and and I think everyone at some stages just played a massive role in my life like even just being down here in Sydney of had family cold family takes everyone wanting to know what's happening with games what's happening we look forward to watching and cheering you on I'm can I switch gears a little bit and talk a little bit about your speech Pathology work that you've done but I'm sure we'll be I'm sure we'll be fine when win or lose hopefully win but it'll be you could game and I'm sure you will and I think the thing I say now it's getting the and overcoming injury that's always very hard for athletes not only physically but also mentally just wondering if it's going to ever go again how is that takes with these and all my family a pretty hot at broncos supporters except for daddy's a support us so when I when I told them playing for the roosters are all non was signed in the recovery pace and he's not even a professional athlete anymore so it but it does the od get the more you and I'm just I love it I pop in the boots now because just feel better for it don't you coming up at the same time so you feeling anxious I am actually yeah I'm very nervous you know it's my it's my debut in in Russa's colors which is something I'm really excited about but at the same time accomplished I'm sitting here cheering for the versus a never thought that would happen so she's converted a little bit over into the men's side of the game to Helen we been Sydney full so down I was pretty pretty anxious about it all too because you you kind of hit your peak you like I went from representing all size to the strike team to break Dad's side of the family he's one of eleven so he's got he's got lots of cousins let's of Ani's a non calls the mom sort of the family she's one of five and then composition down here but when I go back I'll be working as a speech speech and I love it I'm really lucky to do what I what I do and what for Organiz Ation doing that here or just is that mostly when breezy yes when I'm up in Breezy fulltime speech pathologist It was just a bit tricky to try and get a thing like having one of your own you can switch teams or at least back that one player in that team a non non literally takes me win the Russa's applying the panthers the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health or get to work with every day on the Gold Coast especially but yeah just being to help people help families with their community Actionaid's whether that be for a little two or three year old up to a you know an elder who's sixty seventy who might have difficulty with swallowing communication cast interacting with the mob on a day-to-day basis. Oh I love it I love it and it's so funny too because sometimes I find it a lot of families want to talk about people who can manage their food so they get pneumonia they get chest infections and yet it's pretty pretty hectic but it's a really rewarding job to know that you can you can help someone pass through that annoy set even though we have a family who said to see me for speech pathology that we can connect on that level through spoil through culture or something like that speech pathology side of things but also saying you know professional athlete amongst the mix House being how is it being at work every day and you know you see when they get to school and then it's tricky took as the kids who might have had the ear infections and things like that because school bit trickier they get labeled as the the bad well the the looping and that's probably one of the big thing is that there's a lot of a lot of young young fellows who do get those recurrent ear infections which can affect speech and language and then later on Lee so you like working within the organization that you do and with ah communities and helping health more broadly you must be a bit of superstar only able to help on the kind of or a little bit slower to develop some of those skills it might be because of hearing him up because of hearing could be older older some speech therapy could be anything but yeah it's it's a pretty prevalent type thing in in aboriginal tortured onto people and us how it ties in and I think yeah being specie but also being fully player they work quite well together. I didn't see that I was like oh I'll try and keep the hat to beat separate all the specialists that we can't make sure that little ones have the best chance at succeeding with that be you know just regular checkups and might be gromit might be one in six people in in general have speech or communication difficulties but within the don't tread on the population it is a little bit higher up forty which is awesome and I love it so it's nice to be able to connect with with families I that how'd you how'd you what did you think of the guy on the weekend or how is that what's happening with the Gills game so it's really got into it as well so I had a lot of middle ear infections or a lot of titus media semi speech and language were really I guess slow too auto kid when when realistically must have come off the back of you know some e difficulties and things like that but yeah just we want do things with yeah with kids promotion and stuff around smoking cessation so yeah just being able to access stuff like that online and being able to share it and promote it through my own social social media platforms and so obviously you just said it's from young to old but what if some of the signs that people might have they might need someone like you help yeah it kind of works in with with it could just be gone for five minute walk in the morning to something a little bit more retain on Jim once a week it could be anything so and social media and utilizing kind of platforms to share some of the positive messages that you're around health though footy people who have been in car accidents or have had strokes brain injuries who can't quite communicate the way they need to who might have swallowing difficulty stir that's a big one to really big area for us is of using your voice really and earning your experiences and using that to influence positively those kind of people are Angie how do you find I'm especially the younger is just because of the recurrent ear infection so that's something we work closely with we work with the the audiologist and pediatricians and you know they so good you know they recipes online about how to Cook deadly Tucker and stuff like that and make things healthier there's a lot of hills Dan footy and create a story around jt and him kicking his bowl and then we can write about it and then we can make something footy related so it's really just you know encourage younger younger people to take control of the health and to make healthier choices whether that be through aiding drinking or gambling whatever it might be oh I think the power of social media is huge with the way the world's working at the moment to were such a technological world and I think that's where we can do but no I love it I'm really excited and something I can connect with a lot of the kids with two because I've all of them love their food so you know we might Taylor some therapy activities to be in care of yourself workshop in questions with the team coming in they WanNa know what your best cheat meal is my vis cheat meal all that's tricky and you know I'm a forty player at speech during the day but it's almost it's too hard in community because everyone loves it at the same time and it's a little bit forward to for the rest of the season coming up I think probably like the field stuff is amazing and we'd love to win the premiership that's probably the big goal but I think just to see how much it impacts the broader community is something I'm really looking forward to. We had a lot of people jump on onboard with the women's game especially last year the Women's movement Oh I don't think apply poss- the so that gives me three or four more years four Max I think four linked by thirty I'll be I'll be done you know there's Arrow W was huge but to actually have gills the boys the middle aged men and women they know who we are as a group Yeah I wanted to be a snack every now and again like chocolate or Pekka chiefs but for the Mars pilots it's pretty healthy and good and what are you looking I think I really enjoyed doing Kinda resonates with me as an individual What does raise at night with me as an individual trying to live a healthy lifestyle and I am cheat meal or love Tacos love tacos because a love crane and I'll I'll have the the just little things like that just make the whole process I with it so yeah probably that social impact amongst community something I'm really looking forward to seeing and and how that the the good stuff and reach a lot more people through through social media so I need to get better at it but I'm what I'm definitely work on it and in terms of Diet and of the show appreciation for our culture you know we're resilient people were proud people and even though we don't necessarily over the top and remarked that and and shouted from the rooftops we will feel it something that I love a love that I can feel that talk of difficulty in and do what they want to do in everyday life and is that suffered more within our own community compared to mainstream they sang it? Aw Connection that we have amongst each other it's something you can't describe it's something that you can't say but it's something you can feel because my age or you know what technology is just got knowledge of technology but no it's great especially willing to work with deadly choices Up as well as cermony awesome women still running around in their mid thirties playing killing it absolutely killing it but I think my body let me go guy that long it's enjoy wt the lettuce leaf there or do Spaghetti was the caney noodles instead of pasta who was a favorite But no I I usually eat pretty well so hopefully she can win a million Olympic medal but other than that year just to be the travel maybe a couple of kids we'll say Yeah Guy but there are real big medal chance next year and I think she'll probably play the four years after that too so yeah I think just follow her around the beach volleyball sick for a while and something that I really really enjoy even an example as we've got young girl in that roosters team named Bobby and a sore from and ars of of sport basically in eighteen months to she helped pick up the pieces when I was really struggling and whatnot but she basically just and I think that's why across different communities across different clans and molds and things like that we all just feel like we've got this shared understanding the shed okay I am and I was like oh my gosh you know you can feel that connection to people say yeah that's something I love so you would have had exposure to lots of a bit of running a trauma the last ten years sorry say yeah I'm that's a good goal and then so you're only thirty at that point what's going to be next so still continue that doesn't even compare so she was that person who got me back without even knowing it like if she can walk talk still run you know three kilometer Tom Trophies I just stay with you over time that have really kind of jewel yeah I am I had a lot of awesome coaches people involved in authorised looking Takei and then dumps in Seattle cream on it and some cheese just to make it a little bit more flavor swimming pool but yeah I love love tacos Romo laying that you're currently doing yeah I really am I kind of just got into the social media side of things I'm a bit slower than a lot of lot of the others just because onto the hit around that but then when they see a game they like oh my gosh that was so physical that was so brutal and they don't expect coming from I guess women in that Louis Coaches mentors during your time birth in professional sport and other areas has there been any pieces of advice it of stuck out to you percents but now it's amazing it's such a such a fun part of the game it's a huge crowd of the game so it's nice to kind of see people's perceptions of the game turn and and really recognize what we're trying to do in you you inspired my daughter I can't wait for my nieces to stop playing footsie on my Gosh I'm coaching a little women little girls footed as an equal and always treated me as a as a person I and a forty seconds so that's something convoys probably resonated with sounds like a great coach it wasn't so much what she said it was just that she instilled I guess in in a belief in me that I could get back and then I could be pushy Burger Nick plying I drive woman as well I think I'll go over and Fingal with her a little bit she'll be playing thing is crossing the Tokyo Olympics next year so I went and watched during Rio threes what do you do for a living in your professional rugby league player what did I say usually the first reaction is all you play that's cool but like you guys don't tackle do you the main she can do it without having had a broke my ankles Atawni dropping the water compared to that so yeah that was more in actions type thing but for her only three times a size a boys well and that's going to become normal like that's going to be a normal thing in a few years where girls and boys are just playing directly on the field but there have been instances in my life where I feel as if people have assumed because of whatever there's a cart she's a she's a a woman Koch obviously and she's been through it all so yeah I think the hurt was just she's just always instilled that belief in man she's always treated me uh-huh why sporting journey so far but I think a big one for me has been my my billy coach Tony Norris so she saw me you know break my ankle from all these highs and lows I learned or heard or grown up with and in their mindset they've assumed that I can't have achieved something so often get a comment like oh what do you do the stir fry staffer is good what are they don't have the other not oh Sandra Bell is always a good he loves him Sancho Babs Yeah Yeah with the embraces and more broadly has view ever come across that on the field applying opinion I've been pretty lucky to experience it took their little girls four five six years old learning how to tackle which is amazing to playing the same team as boys up into a certain age but they're tackling because I'm young because I'm a black fellow because is this is that I can't have achieved what I wanted to achieve in an together playing contact sport together I'm in the media at the moment there's a lot of talk about kind of racism with you know the good couple of films that have kind of come out and just just pops up out of nowhere because it'll it'll always come after the also what's your name what's your cultural background and it's like as soon as I've so she was someone would lean on quite well You know breaking your neck is is something huge had these ankle and also Gordon the garage was it's GonNa be massive in a few years yeah yeah absolutely it's just kind of start isn't and you can you're part of that kind of growth and hoping that move along how many do you think you have any obey a speech as they travel in the future what goals do you have outside of forty well my best night till I quit clancy she's a beach volleyball La Proud average I've seen some amazing young girls out there like I think that was a a photo a while ago Murray Bowen Daughter and she was tackling kid who was we've got so much to show for it and yeah can't wait until you know racism is is gone it's obliterated it's not it's not here anymore and hopefully that's not want to show what that kind of speaks to but yeah I feel as if there is this perception that like pillows con achieve or they can't do something significant and it doesn't even have to be significant Leeann amongst it so can you tell us what you think is unique about being an average monetize her own person today I think just that the inherent spirits what comes next isn't necessarily as good as what made me I don't know if that makes sense

The Black Guy Who Tips Podcast

1:47:56 hr | 1 year ago

1986: Oinked.com

"I listened to the Black Guy who tips podcast because Rawdon Karen hugs from then as she had the girls hair in braids tucked under less white man see it raining around her shoulders and push dollar rap fingers towards her she instructed her about deafness and blindness blindness how valuable and necessary Sir they were in the company of White Women who spoke English and those who did not as well as in the presence of their children to her how to crawl around along the walls of buildings disappear disappeared in the doorways cut across corners and choke traffic how to do anything move anywhere to avoid a white boy over the age of eleven much of this could affect her dress yes but as the new girl grew older more elaborate specifications had to be put in place high heeled shoes with the graceful straps across the arch the vampire hats closed on the head with saucy brands framing the face makeup of any kind all of that was out loud in Alice man for its house especially especially the coat slung low in the back button but clutch like a bathrobe or a towel around the body forcing the women who wore them to look like they had just stepped out of the Bat. Atta and we're all ready for bed hey welcome to the blackout test podcast with your host ride and and we're live on on a Sunday doubleheader what's going on over Yari Yeah I'm just thinking about what you did with the bomb you see it's not a poem book so it's an expert from Toni Morrison's Jazz I forgot to mention the exit from the last one was from locking up brown anyway yes thanks from Toni Morrison's jazz about this girl who is killed by an older man she was having an affair with and this is a a description of the house that that girl came from while we're her the woman who took her and I think it was an art and she was extremely religious and I'm trying to tell her about how to avoid these men and the white white people in the white because white men specifically notice that's not it does about black men they're white man's civically were such a threat to black womanhood because they don't have to respect it and at that time the Misogyny miscegenation laws and stuff you can they can literally like like be with you have children with you and everything is still have no entitlement to take care of you or your children not to mention of course just pure amount of sexual assault today could do with impunity because essentially there was no one who was gonNA punish white man for violating the black woman right so you know I love stuff like passages like that and that's a that's a great novels and it just made me you think how that to dismiss this past past past and pass the fast pass and you know mark with the exception of I know is always an exception to the rule but most black women at any age particularly once you're asking titties start developing that's when people want to shut it down that's when people when act like you it'll no problem I you know it's very difficult age like Nigga I'm starting my period hormones are raging the fuck is this my face breaking out and now I got to worry about Bush it it does beyond my control I gotta worry about Yo Dick Yeah there's levels to the subjugation inexperience and the sexualization of the Black Woman's the body like people think of it now the people that grew up in our age we mostly think of it as a thing of black men versus black girls Black Girls Burbank women add a treat black girls but we haven't grown up in a age where it was his openly seen as black women was so disrespectful that white man with proposition now at a on a at the drop of adopt because essentially you have no rights satirist and if I'm white man my dig is a blessing to you so you know you're broke you destitute you whatever ever you can quit coming from high society you could be whatever it don't matter I'm white you know what I'm saying so this idea especially of the sexualization solicitation over sexualization because that stuff goes back to slavery lie even when like slave girl be in a certain age is still property property to someone and so the things that they can do and get away with are totally different than things that they would they can do to their own women and that's not to say that white women were always like protected they suffered abuse to just wasn't the same type of abuse because like I said a black woman had no right in over recourse protection other than maybe if she was owned by someone they you would be like what s her she belongs to Sauna so but that doesn't doesn't really mean much that's like saying don't mess with that car it belongs so yeah that's a great book though we back all right Gal it's been a while we took a week off said I was going to do it and I took a little longer than I thought but you know it it felt good the first couple of days I was just at workaholic part of me is like Ashby doing this I should be doing that and I did do some work behind the scenes we now have a feed for all of the walking dead recasts we've ever done for the regular walking dead show starting season like five I believe you now have a indeed rss feed of your premium you can go back and listen to every cat we've ever done for that and there's a lot of them I did not I mean I mean we had been doing twenty two episodes eighteen season is sixteen how much season is of the walking dead Oh so yeah I I have we've done eighty recaps not counting this season where we've done for about facts well that's what I'm here for and that's why I'm China Anyway Yeah so we put our eighty of those at one Salaam I had to chop them up 'cause we used to recaps and then do like a regular show right after I might right we were doing episode a week or episode every two episodes it was a week or so we had a wedge in stuff whereas like okay we didn't walk day recap but now we gotta talk about current events today feels kind of old school yes even chopping happened it up in the two different episodes we're kind of doing what we used to do the long story tradition of the blackout tips here guys yeah no said we're GONNA be excited about what I long show essentially like I said we just didn't do shit like I rested relaxed wear out too early vote yesterday but the website that I looked at it would've had it wrong but that's fine because we still went out and mm-hmm two pages with a with a mini house we found on a WHO lives in that house either we got a park setting Shean Jay yeah like about Canada she shed and then We had breakfast I got a library card yes and breakfast was absolutely de Legis I had me a stuffed Pumpkin Wasco that's it was flames yeah we're good it's just got to get out and kicking and do stuff this week and at a good time man gotta take it off more often every time I take a few days I realized how much I enjoy taking time off and then also I realized how much my job is keeping up with social media shares and to see Social Social Media Shit and not give an opinion or to treat it with the level of importance that I feel deserve sometimes and to sit back back and realize how much people get caught up in hypo things and into the peer pressure of things go right it really helps in in reading health because long-form reading I'm telling you I haven't really done it as much since I was a kid and now I'm back in the stage of I'm reading a lot of long form things and it's just so Oh fucking helpful with one with your mind training your mind to to read things that are longer than of headline or tweet or whatever that's important I think the other thing book is you're not reading it constructed an argument to like talk with it or interact with which I think is something we've lost because when you read along facebook post or thread on twitter whatever blogs medium piece like part of our instinct is the one reply to want to contribute to it to leave a comment comet and in a book you just reading the book is what this person thinks about this thank you don't have to accept it you don't have to agree with but you are reading it that's all it is to it and I'm still reading hop does not abuse book which is a is an amazing book and just you know right it's right at the right time I'm reading that right at the Ring Francesca Ramsey book is fucking perfect because France book is about like her navigating Internet and making mistakes and like learning earning her own voice her balance in life and stuff and and then turn around and read this book that's how you know in a lot of ways foreshadowing win what the Internet has become now and we'll get into that because the Internet is real stupid right now but I love it so the fisherwoman of the show is the tasers an unofficial lavelle boulevard strain will for me I slipped I play video games that's all I did yeah we did a nerd off on Friday just Medicare and what was the first time we've ever done I mean you I was like I don't know but I'm not enough now yeah my shit I know I know and I can get out about it yeah it was fine I think people a you know listen to it will enjoy it I think also just for women a Lotta Times they take themselves out of the nerd discussion light authority of as you guys it's like nerdy early about what you're nerdy about just reading that and we'll just have fun and we did have fun I really am did them shit like that I pay attention to Roger We'd like I didn't know that happened Yes let's US and it's good to kind of have your memory bank because like I said there's certain things and like the book world that I was not introduced boost to three comic I was introduced to through TV show the TV show so you know star labs and things like that yeah that's what burying this is going on it and you had this plane to meet kind of background you always say that that's not true I don't read the DC comics like that anything you learned about Poly Ali from Chris and depots T I don't I don't know anything about that stuff like a- nurse weird because people get off on knowing all this trivia and inch it but the truth of the matter is you know what you're into you wash you wash all Steven Universe there's a bunch of stuff I don't know about Steven Universe I've watched some of it but I'm out of my depth I can't I you know I'm not as able to rattle out characters and plot points and stuff and that's fine I'm not inadequate like a lot of this nourishes just people's consumption consumption and you consume in a thing so you want to know about the thing you consume wrecked that's okay but but for some reason our society not some reason I know why but things will come so gender is that women specifically are kind of cast out as not knowledgeable you know mostly because me and can't handle the idea yeah of a woman being in a space where they're not gonNA fuck them or trying to fuck right or you know it all comes into play and then once a woman herself is anything other than I'm here to fuck you it she got to go is the boy's club and so women have been a time where their nerdy as anybody else but I'm not a nerd or you know these boys are mean to me when I say I'm a nerd and shit like that that's because I think men are just fucked up right right and it's also one of those things to to where it becomes an unnecessary battle like like it it becomes a pattern that doesn't have to be there if men were actually put fucking eagles to decide and realize that this year is for everybody's consumption assumption in most little girls particularly around my age it wasn't really that much good girl shit in the world so we on the same shift a little boys consumed most of the time and so if you like it we had like a two because they let a lot of shit was not cater to us so we had to learn the same names and we kicked out about the same sheet that y'all how kicked out about and it's very very frustrating because his not the this women can be mean is the fact that portray them as mean because they like oh I I know my shit and I'm not gonNA back down and I'm not GonNa let you talk me and just because I gotta sit at titties does not mean I'm stupid yeah there's there's a lot of stuff to happen this week that like I said we didn't get to chime in on because we were off the air but idea they wanNA give my heart takes and random thoughts and stuff real quick okay so the Harriet tubman movie came out everybody knows awesome huge Harry a fan I'm Cheri Tubman Fan I think she's literally a superhero this movie the first trial of four looked terrible to me the subsequent trailers looked better but I like that I never got to that first trailer out of my mouth right which is Weiser hype about it and like I wasn't even run around on twitter like having you know like when you see like the first Black Panther trail you're just like Oh my God stop NBA halftime who gives the fuck rewind this portrayal fifteen hundred zero right yes tickets now right light hair he didn't give me that vibe you know And so when I saw ah the when I saw the trailer for is less excited you know then eventually I built my hype back up like fucking this area I just WanNa they are tired of is going to be because I understand this a dramatic cise a fair right they're not it's not a biography is not exactly a documentary ministry it's not a book is actually a dramatized movies but they're gonNA take license with the Cariballo Blah I wanna see what areas they do that anyway I saw the movie but that was aren't I thought it was a three out of five you know maybe if you use Harriet Tubman fan and you just excited to see her on the big screen again for the first time maybe you'll be a little more hype three and a half out of five but it's the movie that has some flaws is the movie that has some good performances promises I you know I just felt like the script took some nine even just liberties were like descriptors took some directions I'm just like I wonder what made them really even go in this direction I wonder what made them think about that but let me tell you something I saw it at ten am on a Friday right everybody in there was either like everybody and there was black number one number two there were some age ranges where people like a kid to see there were like some Oh said next to older black women and needed like canes to walk in there shoutout to them because one of the actors had a guy who played the sailor on the ship they they were sitting next to NASA handsome looking brother right in MHM over this man about thirty five years off from meager okay I'll put this thing on how move like a used to it was funny because they they came down in the first row sat next to me and then she was like this are seeker we will be Rubio it it was like what this role as oh and they got up and mood and then Russia came and then help them give back and I was like Dang I kind of understood next ladies and then they came and sat next to me I was like oh good do like I do WanNa see next to it don't matter ain't nobody in here they had a good time and yet they actually listen. I'm not exaggerating this is not the first time I've heard it I have two other people that have contacted me unfortunately had to contact me privately we'll we'll get to why they had to contact me privately okay 'cause you're boy lives in his truth fuck that same variances I had at the end of the movie the Audience Audience Clapped Okay if you've been online you haven't seen this movie your right now going what the fuck are you talking about this is a piece of shit done as a white savior movie that's what applicant told me disrespecting legacy Harriet Tubman the black twitter lights yeah and I gave to you is a bunch of people that are saying that Kinda Shit that are spreading that type of La they ain't seen this movie and Ainley the House House and they hopped on twitter like if you guys ever seen that that gift from a community which Roy brings the pizza in the apartment yeah that's what it felt like when I log onto it after seeing a movie because I was like Oh cool I can see what people think about the movie 'cause I you know I'm thinking it's worth discussing this flawed but you know had some good parts and bad parts br I log on and I'm like are you motherfuckers literally ready to like boycott got Africa over there is like what is happening is happening I mean I do feel like they did take a little bit too many liberties liberties at the end when is weird you know when Sam data shows up asking a joint ventures I might as a little too much okay look it my go to guy I don't think that happened okay I would doubt on that but dog people were mad as ask fucking this movie in a way to I mean is it was not healthy and the the rumors I don't know if you've seen seen what people have been saying okay so the rumors that people have been saying online and I don't even want to name the twitter account 'cause I don't WanNa get into these people but less to sail suffice to say I I just ended up black and these people because I think the the lack of integrity to do this is something I can't I cannot ignore but they were saying that I'm trying to say this in a way that doesn't for what really happened because what they lie and this may be stopping people from Santa movie and I'm not saying you should go see the movie I've saying if this is what's stopping you then then don't don't let it stop you they were saying that the white slave owner who was chasing after Harry the whole movie was love interest that's not true it's natural actue any level it's not true at all is no love retire quiet between them there's no affection he literally tells her more than once on one occasion about how she is like his property and it's not even like a sexual thing or anything like it's not a you know because I love of you are Mary you're GonNa make you my kids it's not even that just literally this is what people were saying true that's not true another the thing they were saying was that the main bill another movie is a black slave hunter that's not true there is a villain in the movie you there's actually two of them that happen to be black slave hunters I won't spoil how that works out but they're not the main buildings neither one of them is and that's what da up that people went and did that they also said that the white slave master did something at the end of the movie to like protect Tale Harrier and inherited forgave him slavery both of those also lies I saw people saying these things I I'm so oh upset by it because the movie like I said you can have issues with the movie and not do that right you can have you can have issues with some characters they made up and not do that I mean every dramatization of historical things has made up characters moments in the of the attacks on this movie are not about this movie is about in my opinion Cynthia Cynthia areva being cast as Harriet area who actually does a great job hairy is so now you can't blame her unfortunately for the agenda The whole movie so now now everybody including cassie lemon who made us value Everybody was paying a pond in for her why what happened a black women directors they never get another chance ask that in order to get the Cynthia they sacrificing Kathy Kathy going into the into God seek is known for her like this shit may actually actually literally in I wouldn't be shocked if this fucks up her career and she's about the next project she has is Kathy Lemons is directing a series on cj Madame CJ Walker Lou. What am I personally right so I'm I'm like I hope these fucking I hope these supposed be well we go for black women motherfuckers having messed up this black woman's career and then she holds over into her next project and now it's we're out to get this woman like I really hope that's not what what happened another thing I noticed talking about this on social media seeing people talk about it a lot of people that are attacking this or hotels to a lot of those eight zero s tape accounts they only talk about how everything is racist in like you niggers was breathing breathing this Arab West like it Brianna White Folks Yeah Yeah it was that type of that type of account that was also in this combined with people are actually no end I'm Ba- frank used to respect wreck that are black feminist people that are like out here to get this move because they don't like Cynthia Repo so now they're just online lying like what the fuck man I like how the walk away with some level of respect for your integrity is over this I don't understand is I I don't I don't get how you get to that point that you lose yourself over some fucking twitter twitter Donald beal sells like I say maybe it's just that they didn't want to see the movie so they made it up but go see the movie an inch on it I mean just wait till the boxers retires you know it ain't GonNa beat fucking Terminator and whatever else came out this week is when it comes in third or fourth just be like see I told you this movie was like you could've took the win any other weight in Lyon Ryan and I can respect that right I get agendas going to gender but this lying dog is out I'm I'm and beyond discussed the man like so that like I think it's about getting Cynthia but in the end result is going to be casting living is going to be known as the this is a terrible director they made a terrible movie you know obviously you'll have the racist who hate the movie hotel the movie and then you got the people that stay on twitter that Hate Cynthia revolver does tweets they hate the movie a limousine yeah end of the day is probably going to only black people careers on all new ones they get fucked over by that type of shit anyway so maybe they'll get somebody they won't give San Diego since you ain't got nothing to do that everyday mad about stuff that Cynthia everyone can be like I had nothing to do with my performances great so the goal was the gay her out of the paint I see you next time getting on the roll and keep it trucking could yeah but I don't know what's worse the people that didn't see it and we're rolling what these lives or the people that saw and made the laws up I don't know what's worse right 'cause like I said you can have issues with this movie you can fuck into test movie and not have to lie about it you know so that's really bothering me this week especially knowing that I was looking forward to the movie and Hoping Hoping it generated Lisa real discussion on some of the things and you know they romanticized some things they took dramatic licence with some things but the same way people don't have that same energy that they have this like for example a hidden hidden figures there is no Kevin Costner character there is no ripping down to colored sign at NASA bathrooms 'cause it was taking too long there is no moment like like that that never happened no one was this fucking mad about it no one say a Katherine Johnson deserves to have a movie that is never knew her life incident you don't have to make things like no one was keeping don't go see or support this movie shit going you know nobody was it's to see this kind of like agenda against it is very disappointed so like I said I watch watch the movie and like I on huge hairy came away with like three out of five like it wasn't that good they missed the mark could have been the better the end all and is the final say and then we can move on they may this movie four the so the the on triggered all the time on the Fox News the I'm tired of sexual assault am sleigh beaten and he sad as slave movies them people they made this movie for them it's partially the moon was only okay is because they softened the blow of a lot of stuff in this movie specifically because I don't WanNa see them all up on I don't want I'm tired of slavery movies out how why we got the beat this they made this movie for that to be to say look here's a movie you can and enjoy is pg thirteen not rated R. Right you know obviously is during a slave era's GonNa be you know racist white people and share there still going to be violent wiz but there is no like less ring personnel and beat them with a whip seen you know there is no real torture of a slave physically A in a in a in a way that's almost gory or something this threat you know you know these white people are racist and mad so there's you know you niggers no not to leave or shit like that but there is like is crazy to think they I know they were afraid to make the film that these mother fuckers claim they wanna make and that they wanted to see in my point being this is why you can't trust these mother fuckers because every time they claim to want some share and you create the thing they fucking tell you why it's fucked up angry a black lady sketch show is exactly what I've seen motherfuckers decry we don't why doesn't exist why can't black women just just have fun why can't I be about black men can't be about white people why can't we I have a space where we just have joy black girls have joined back girls can be silly black girls can be nurse that she had one episode of these mother fuckers could not wait to be like boycotted Waco this show these special snowflake black Blah Blah Blah I don't know not now woman role not now women in the cast like that just assumed all these Audi audio like condom coon's and she could not could not fucking every time they say they want some shit they either don't watch it or they fucking can't wait and vice versa when they say they hate them shit they watched the death the writing for funding game of thrones through the roof to the fucking right they was talking about being triggered it in and it was too much violence that she didn't like season two and three and somehow made it a season eighteen years later what the fuck what's the truth what is the truth like the La the blatant lies on fucking social you can't cater to know to make this shit whatever you do just make that shit yeah man be yourself as a creative if you worried about getting cancelled or making the thing that they're gonNa fuck with you about let me tell you they're gonNa Talk Shit about no matter what you do come home all so you might as well be true yourself and do what the fuck your vision was because to me as a fan of Harry tell me I'm more let down in the film for not being being like for not just going there being like yes it was fucking dangerous you know what I'm saying like it took a Lotta hugging cunning and grit and stuff like in to me I like underground version of notches hairy but even journey small less character modeling actor Harry Wright escaping the free free I like that more right because they actually took it there L. I noticed it was validating right they show training and all types of Shit yes yeah so you when you try to please everybody you end up with a film that pleases nobody and as far as the people that just mad at Cynthia Repo I get it yeah but that ain't got nothing to do it as fucking move so it's sad to see when you see people lying I I could I will I appreciate and respect the people to say I don't support the reverse I'm GonNa fuck what you do like I saw somebody say that and you know what code over to this I didn't really know that much about her like that so I wasn't in a fan or not a fan it was right after this I'm like Oh she can act and saying I might check her out I don't know you know but I'll tell you one thing about this movie Harry told me could say y'all she could blow okay she was killing of Negro spirituals apparently sent everyone is a good singer so I think they try to win some thinking into it but now she killed him themselves though but yeah so that's controversy number one and on talk but at that that shows you before you move on this does the disconnect between online in real life you have people stand up it's a Bravo Bravo people loved it allow will make you think it ain't Shit y'all baby I was so shocked I I watched people I don't I don't make it up you know I like this is why this is my real experience I didn't talk for Optima theater like good okay you know could have been a five ended up being three cool you know maybe I'm not someone else doesn't know the Harriet project it'll it'll fit better to me from what I wanna see I get online boycott this movie don't hurry it does they're better donald go see it is a white savior fem she forgives the white man for slavery Mike Wait the watch the movie I'll just say Shit I like Oh my oh God did this this shit that's controversy number one I wanted to talk about and didn't get talked about last week okay I have more okay go ahead okay I'll just let build inside I don't talk to these about this shit you can't talk on social media 'cause it's just not not a good place to have a conversation ladies is not so then these mother fuckers can you put a God Damn Obama's last week I don't know what's worse the fact that ahead they didn't learn from twenty two thousand eight to now or the fact that they've been trying to run his game plan of the Obama Obama's on a real problem and every time they opened him out we're gonNA take them out of context and try to get the hits off of that try to get attention yeah I don't know what's worse I don't know but it's always been like that like because it is similar to say anytime the happens is not actually about her about you you take what she said and you making content out of it and getting clicked links your way is not even about them it's like but I have moved past has the point of thinking these stupid which is why I was for a bunch of years I was like okay you know what I soon was or what I heard I took him at face value at the time was well you know what it was he ran a hope and change and I believed out at and he wasn't just he didn't just magically hope and change and agree with your position too so fuck him and that's why man I go okay you're just Kinda dumb you see you you didn't listen to his words you saw poster and you're one of those the people that I wouldn't trust in my house with the with the gas stove you know what I'm saying like you Coul- you exist I'm not saying you're a bad person but you're very very naive and not sophisticated thing usually a black man with a hope and change forklift speeches and policies I'm just gonNA assume he's GonNa be a black Black Panther soon as he gets to office coup you're not a smart person now doesn't worse you know better you're willfully ignorant or willfully you up tools or willfully influence inflammatory I'll take everything needs to motherfuckers do it'd be like let me Shit Oh no yup bakers at today's as the content is about clicking about reposting relenting and all that she is lilly about them they shared a clip of Michelle Obama saying that she was preaching respectability respectability Politics Michelle Obama Ya'll whose book out and celebrate her having sold out places you gotta the game like standing room to see her who who I tried to go see it and take will thousand dollars right and so someone asked Michelle Obama at the Obama Foundation summit where her bureaucracy speaking is there charity and stuff they one person asked her straight up like what can I do as a black person that chain white people's view of us and stop them from me arises Michelle Obama said exactly what the fuck you thought Michelle Obama saying which was nothing don't worry about it he's why people go out and be the best you you can be don't don't be you're trying to change they fucking mind don't be out here trying to like worry about the white gays and what is affecting you and if we're not going to be racist you can't spend that type of energy in your life fuck and chasing and he's white people and that's fucking opinion just do you baby and if you do for yourself be good and be excellent for you maybe some white person might be edified by seeing that and go oh this is breaks out of studio ties I thought about black people but that's your job so if they do if they don't that's not the goal the goal is to just be excellent for yourself these motherfuckers shared that clip like C. C. tells them people wearing about white people and try to change them I in the direct opposite of what she said the direct opposite now are you still are you willfully ignorant not think though the the willfully of tooth people start the lot they're the ones that spread the clippers they look what she's saying I'm disgusted I'm tired of these respectability politics negroes okay okay that person's is real fucked up they did that on purpose right within stupid are the ones I think go after that don't click the clip don't go refunding makes you just go nope no research apparently Michelle Obama who said I live in a house where slave she just foot stuck in fucking suddenly became a cone just just woke up this morning say you know like I had it all wrong I don't know I can understand why people now right so yeah this was Azzam this is her talking about white flight at the same conference you were running for us and you still running because we're no different than the immigrant the families that are moving in she's on my own white flight out of cities right here it is I write a love called white flight that has families like ours upstanding families like ours you know we're doing everything we were supposed to do and better as we moved in white folks moved out because they were afraid of what our families represented and I always stop there when I talk about this out out in the world because I want to remind white folks that y'all were running from us you now because this family this family family with all the values that you read about you running from us and you still running because we're no different than the immigrant families that are moving in because we can so easily wash over who we really were because of the color of our skin because of the the texture of our hair you know that's what divides countries artificially as artificial roll things that don't even touch on the values that people bring to life and so yeah I felt I feel a sense of injustice and you know this when you're you're young you know people are running from you you know and you can see you had friends of all races we played together there were no gang fights there were no territorial real battles but yet one by one they packed their bags and they ran from us and our point there is is literally the opposite of respectability say respectability can't save you We were the family that they claim black people need to be they don't even walk with us that you know they don't fuck with nobody else they run in from the family that they claim don't exist of blackness right the upstanding educated well to do not criminal family they claim doesn't exist well even in the mythical land of black people can't be excellent they don't care for excellent only black people either they didn't put Barack Obama in the White House they don't fuck with us period soon as you see the skin color we're done here so you're white flighting out of the families that could even make it into the white neighborhoods because to you is black mission running from not not criminality not lasciviousness not of bad education shit is something about blackness moving in that's making you run right so that but that y'all want me to believe that's the same woman that talk about respectability and is the very disappointed that the people were riding with that's right that's what we call it cone now we show about I people throw that word around so freely as I disagree with you a coon bitch fuck stance right while working on try to find on on try to find the other two were talking about talking about how you can't try how to change white people by being excellent in black because I want to hear that one yeah then they also to Barack out of context as well as they I want to do you. Barack Obama basically called a talked about how being woke on twitter is not the same as like actual activism activism because just saying I'm the most periods person politically is not going to actually get us anywhere and considering that solutions and the humans who have to carry them out are all flawed yes they are all you're doing is convincing you to not participate on any level will and that's not good I'm late ACA as well this idea of purity and you're never compromised and you're always politically woke okay and all that stuff you should get over that quickly the world the world is messy there ambiguities the people who do really good stuff have flaws people who are fighting may love their kids and you know share certain things with you and I think that one danger I see among young people particularly on college campuses me and I talk about this yard goes to school with my daughter Yasha he but I do get a sense sometimes now amongst young people and this is accelerated by social media there is this sense sometimes of the the way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people and that's enough like if I tweet or Hashtag about how you didn't do something right or used the word wrong verb or then I can sit back and feel pretty good what about myself because man you see how it woke I was I called you out on TV watch my show watch grown a you know that's not that's not activism that's not bringing about change it if all you're doing is casting stones you're probably going to get that far that's easy to do and I don't see anything wrong what he said there no no and he's coming from a place of identifying work like I used to do this I used to be out in the street like what are we talking about here the people were mad at that to are they just wanted to be mad right I've come to that conclusion on permanent mad right light light the is just sad to see people take it out of context because he's not talking about cancel culture is not real or or cancel coaches though problem or people being woke is the problem or you know nobody from online does work offline I saw a piece written in the Guardian about this woman was completely taken out of context and being like yeah he's trying to say stuff like black lives matter it matters no you didn't say that I don't know if you I noticed black lives matter happened outside Internet too it wasn't just come out people actually much industry what are we talking about you know but and then it was like well he didn't give any examples I'm like I'll al give

twitter in college today you can't just say here's what's wrong with every single thing and I'm gonNA contribute nothing twitter's the one place where people feel the most powerful and they claim to be the most powerless with the results whenever something negative happens off of that social media shit like when they target the wrong people for these castles and all the sheets the wrong person loses a job or they misquoted miss attributes of these mother fuckers have zero accountability never come back in cleaning up they never sound sorry they never say well you know what next time I'm B double fucking show before I say Larry Jones I heard he was racist fire too small and I found out is really Lawrence Jones who lives in California hoops like you just never see type of accountability that because you don't have to have it you raise to the next block and fame the you know you don't see anybody taking back what they said about Michelle and Barack and been like oh I thought he was trying to say this and now look at it in context and that's not what happened because it it doesn't matter like I because I'm I'm a happy person I like to stay in a happy place a lot of people that opposite of me they like to stay angry elect to stay in angry place Jason an unhappy place they did a high of being mad in raging is is the drug is very intoxicating to to be permanently mad all the time you know what else it is though bay they have community around correct this is the thing I'm really talking about now more no 'cause I've seen it and I understand him is the same thing I brought a Gina Rodriguez most people there's Gina Rodriguez being problematic Bible. We don't speak with her cool I get that but then there's Gina Rodriguez coughed and we all back on it oh you're going back it's like going back to a club going back back to a party you had a good time there Saturday but now it's Thursday and you know the Thursday Dj and is good drink specials ain't popping it ain't going to be as many people tair music what you gotta go because fuck else we're GonNa do you know we can't go to Bella no tears going to do so now so you gotta gotTa go back to this fucking club because that's where you have your share community you have these groups and you're having fun there you're you know over memo when I say I just remember when I oh let's get the best insoles I see that a lot I've seen shit that happened three four five six years ago this person has moved on people have moved on and on and on with their lives but anytime their name is brought up is is like Deja Vu they start over again I've seen people say you're remember we trending again like this it don't make no fucking sense let it go so you have to be the so we have to be as mad added Gina Rodriguez for asking those girl like wash gotta say she's a black woman or whatever which is literally like I see why people be very offended by that they had to be mad about that as her rapping along to Niggers Gimme he'd be JV's I'm not doing it like motherfuckers Tailpipe Taylorsville like what is honestly where the community is and because you know you're lonely a lot of your community is found online a lot of that this this is a chance to like be with the group again so we doing it again and Obama is the source of community for these Kinda I'm over intellectual actual more than you other blacks are not I'm not a Republican but I'm better than you other blacks is a good place for that type of intellectual group up and be like remember how we all figured out that Obama was the real problem and these other negroes they just don't get that and also into toad they missed Obama well more than the people who actually loved voted for Obama and the reason why they missed Obama is because they got content off of everything he did they could actually go and be contrary to everything he did like that was their thing wake up and say today that was their jam and the club got close as an aside the fuck on pogues to do he ain't Talkin Dane San up then they live in laws guess what phone calls stop emails Stop You stop people stop inviting you black ownership because we don't fuck about what y'all got to say because he's not in office no more so now you're like fuck we're going to do Lord Wa wa Wa why why why and they're all coming back for twenty twenty right so that's why you're seeing these conversations pop up again because you know what else is coming back the the OBAMAS are coming back to try to fucking save America from himself again and someone someone told me they were like well just like being online I self ain't GonNa change the other neither vote and I said Barack Obama community organizer never said only voting quick I say it's the same Barack Obama who's literally started organization to fight voter suppression and Gerrymandering that Barack Obama's not doing nothing except what I come on now we've talked about this before and and Niggers kill me being loud and wrong don't know facts they don't know shit particularly when it comes to Barack Obama Nigga love love saying what the fuck do and you going where you know you actually benefiting from the shit that he did he passed laws that he passed that they're constantly they try to strip it's well known how ignorant can you possibly be chat brought it up we're coming up on annual Ilan Dragon that's it's another one I've never made a joke about Lan and shit that happened because partially it's really just community for these folks right what went through is something that most most of a lot of them have gone through it we keep an above they didn't they just never said nothing about it you know a lot of black people had his experience it's especially those dating interracially right but but it's a time where we can all sit back at mach that man and you see how folks are man the same the people that you know on twitter heavy bomber black could not wait to see the jokes in the brain that dude down like once the machine needs to be fed it don't matter what or who goes in there bitch they don't how it's going to be you and the thing about nobody ever thinks it's going to be them to them then wants to them and they get chewed up and spit out and all this other shit people I've seen it people attitudes change and all of a sudden and God damn right so I never participated in that shit because because I honestly thought it was wrong the way people did it and I'm not wanting to try to tell people you can't joke about Shit I just looked at it and say well I won't be participating participating and if mortgages feel like that's okay to say that's but I I don't I don't get down like that and that's not just because he's a friend or or hours a fan of twelve when it was around that's not even for that is some shit just wrong is it wrong to fucking do you know what I mean but it was it happened and it was it was more about the party than the issue because you allowed to say well no it's just people were mad they were offended okay but it's been three years y'all still don't it the man came tweet about anything without someone bringing that shit up at some point you have to say as us is us we're the angry wins we're the you are the ones harassing and calling it other things but you just a harasser if it was if it was what's my girlfr- Alfred Leslie Jones was she was being harassed by all right everyone was rallying around her wrong she deleted her twitter they you know people were bringing up screen shots Oh shit calling all kinds of names but then I'll do it the eline how much different I was different because we black and he and we can do it to him that's fucked up so like like I said it's it's just a matter of what group is doing and people like going back to that same group and Group I've been up and Obama Group there's a group of black people that just like shitting on Alabama's and they breathe we back I'll UNIDOs Love Obama Limited you will he fucked up this time it's like I'm sure some of the stuff you say has been fucked because he's a human being living in public some shit I agree with correct that's everybody though by the way you don't agree with everything coming out of my mouth but then turn around and be like a even when they say innocuous Shit we're GONNA turn into offensive stupid so here's Michelle Obama's comments I miss when they when she was asked about how to make white people not be races it's how we should all approach our jobs especially especially why is this one so it was not quiet when I listened to her earlier the out there making change too low are oury I try to read it to you with Stephen White put it a whole quota but it was actually he might have sent it to me I think that's how game was gonna go back because I think he may have sent me to youtube clip of the whole thing Ryan again I must've saw our thirteen mark buck but yes but the whole quote in context is is like well there's nothing to be offended by you know but it's like if there's nothing to be offended by then there's nothing to talk about and you know we got to the half something to talk about John we cannot have something to talk about we gotta talk about we'll make up the associate associate right that's associated potter social media we will make something for us to interact with each other because how dare we have something where we are not allowed to interact with each other that's not social yeah man where there is no anyway what quote was I can't make people not afraid of black likely well I don't know what's going on I can't explain what's happening in your head but maybe if I show up every day as human a good human just maybe that work will pick a pick away a disguise ago discrimination as you said she continues because that's what they stopped the quote on purpose so that people get mad and start sharing and be like her book because we can't do what for them because they're broken they're broken in how they see us is a reflection of their broken this and you can't fix that all you can do is the work she's he's talking about this question as a young activists are like how do we do this work to fix these people and she's like you can't they broken maybe they get something out of you being you in edify for yourself that's not that's not job and and also and also I'm not knocking the activists that ask but also a lot of young activists don't go to O'hare as has been in this game for a long time because if you ask them data propagator same information saying thank you because they've been fighting it for the long haul and a lot of times you has a lot of energy but the thing about youth is that they don't understand that over time the reality aalto some shit will actually sneak in you realize that you have to change the way you navigate things it's still you still fight you still do things but guess what you you can hear everything with a sledgehammer you fucking exhaust yourself sometimes you gotta take a scalpel sliced little by little by little by little by little to get done and it takes takes time and the thing is you know when you're young you got images go everything got to be a sledge hammer everything you gotta be chainsaw everything has to be you know one hundred injured in thousand percentage and then you wonder you know you get a few years into your fucking exhausted because you're constantly fighting fighting fighting fighting fighting fighting fighting not being I'm concerned about your mental health not thank your your body not taking care of yourself because the thing about it the machine of of racism is designed to beat you down because they know individually you can't do anything collectively get shit done but the thing is they want you to be Gabba because once you're exhausted and you give up that's one less person and they got to bite also be failure in the chat but that was three years ago so why are you still mad that's that's coming back back to the party they tried to get it going on everything he says and does like at that point like you like I said I can even understand original of set wheelon said right when you get a year out with his two years like standpoint on my o Disney about what he says just that day was such a fine time roasting him he got to get roasted again particularly if the offense was not against because people associated with rolling rolling you wouldn't even associate and have anything to do with it but you but it was party time yeah I saw people just call him like does names and Shit there are no no you wouldn't say that at the face like just you can do online because it's anonymous in and then somebody would high five cosign you and be like girl you crazy you just say he was you know Negro dancing associated is like okay well if that's if that's how you feel you know but it's been three years there's and you see from the way they react to the reaction is about going back to the party we are we doing it again like you literally see people say stuff like Oh what did he do awesome new we're doing it again now I just I just I saw him say he was taking his daughter schools I I said Oh you're going you you're not gonNA use a black meditate it's like like what does it have to do it why why why would you three years later you know why are you calling his wife like talking about how she looks at her looks listen stuff feminist why are you doing in the name of who this I like crazy stuff man so anyway This is the clip I think I found it AH trouble I always went to Craig you asked your mother if she would come with us and she would do it when he ask Isabel if I could say one thing that how that way about this picture picture and let me go pass is thirteen and it just goes to show you what values what character they they had where they would share it and treat the wait staff and the butlers and the people who cleaned and all the service people throughout throughout I mean there's hundreds of people they treated them just like they would treat some dignitary who would visit the White House and it is something that should be noted noted a lot and it is something that has made me proud of the fact that you all the way you are you know trump maintained written ain't none of that you know you you have people here love five store shelves like like my whole fucking life is cooking inigo you fucking McDonald's like the fuck am I doing here you know bring in the big MACs Right he was I can actually we do this I can actually make you a better tasting big Mac nope it got to be deep fried and lay to the side like McDonald's the you know I'd I like it like that more hot mustard sauce all right a the one last thing about this photograph is I believe this is the last dinner that you would have had in the White House for that education for the occasion of of election the laugh election I'll I got for a little bit sorry he said now we're GonNa now we can work we can work we can stop worrying about being the first the only this is our last election you see us again don't like us don't vote for us we're just GONNA work and it's how we should all approach our our our jobs especially out there making change you can't worry about the legacy while you're in it you know it isn't about the legacy it's about the work So Yeah Okay Okay I think I got to the tail end of it but this is the answer to that question how can grow back a little bit about years in so you really have two years to try to make mark because you don't know whether you'll get four more years and while even in my ambivalence about politics you start thinking we just has got started and you start thinking about all the people who made sacrifices an uprooted they're your their lives and their ministration we weren't the only ones that move we weren't the only ones that had kids who had relocate people who gave up careers to make less money because government always pays less you you know to be in the eye of the storm and you start thinking that people are just now rolling up their sleeves and making headway and you feel the weight of not just all that needs to be done in the country but you don't WanNa disappoint this entire administration that you've brought along with you because they have faith so oh the first term is fraught in so many ways because you're my husband was running the country fixing the country and running for reelection it's not unique week every first term president experiences that but until you sort of understand all that's happening in the third in the fourth year there was a lot of tension and also there's the angst of donors the love you all but you know bad debate and it's like Oh my God what's he doing you know everybody's he's like a backroom campaign manager and that's stressful they'll call him and be like well let's tell you what can you do let me give you the five things I think from Mike Ouch or my CEO suite that I think you could be doing differently it's annoying okay not always helpful well it's much as you know about coffee or whatever it is you make this is different uh-huh so you've got that and then you win second term and it's a huge relief because you feel like now we can do the work now we can really we can stop worrying about optics and the elections in poll numbers and we we can really start speaking truth the power start really rolling up getting into the meat of some of these initiatives that we had started so there's a there's a freedom freedom that comes with a second term and not every president gets the second term so this was the beginning of now we're now now we can work we can work we can stop worrying about being the first the only an NBA an out of the office is even more about even more freedom to do the work in which she gets do do these people that are coon they don't care about the country that thing young people are Scooby even though rock Obama's first campaign and both is both ways whereas office were were he want he's a younger president but also both is operatives were about the youth vote because he engaged the youth like earnestly at their level and the time when people were like Oh you can't do that that's how he'd be Hillary you know so oh yeah to see people refrain both of the Obamas in these like Elitist Status Quo Worshiping Anti Anti Change Agent People is is all social media shit like aren't Super Wack to see people like I have no fucking integrity man so I can't find the exact moment that she answered that question you guys can check out yourself Michelle Obama Foundation is the name of the video awesome twenty nine hundred thou- Yagi check it out sales but yeah man to those are two more things I thought it was just like houses even controversy the same activism isn't just cast in stone on twitter when did we start thinking that was like wow this motherfucker right here and then the other one being of course Michelle Obama reframed as a white person of appeasing tone get the fuck Outta my face my God oh all right let's see what other stuff happened this week confirmed husband Alan Ferguson has split at the eleven years together Oh yeah she sounds I must have happened a while ago on van but she just now telling everybody because her business she gets to tell people when she wants to come on the past two years abroad be more physical and spiritual transition evolution than ever before my body left me with no choice but to listen then be still got sick I within that still and this I began my journey in front of my worst enemy fear I've lived my best and worst moments in front of the lands and gaze of the world since I was a teenager I've always tried to live in the truth no matter how ugly a full of love is also tried to carve out the space take my heart and my life as it unfolds evolves and changes eleven years ago I met a phenomenal man change every existence of my life early this year we separated a part of ways and though I ain't net though it ain't now about nobody business I I find it necessary to protect the sacredness of my personal truth and live in it fully just as I have before it will continue to it is unfair to not have power of your own story over your own story as

My mom and dad In having a home healthcare or you know kid a month money to put me in some sort of a some sort of a tare weight. So i have a question to reuse going on record to tell the story. But we're you there. In south philly during the infamous fire episode so the fire episode All right so i moved. When my mom moved from south philly. She moved to a house on sharp next on there. That was the house she saved up. You know she saved two jobs. She bought that house again. My mom was us one thing about my mom. My mom was deck so she lost a hearing at sixteen dropped out of high school at fifteen lost her hearing it sixteen and had three kids by the age of twenty bu- hustler and and super smart and understood how to make moves and under had a vision for a family so she got us out of south when we moved to a house on sharp. Next week we were there for about four five years than she saved up and bought another house on horder street which was the street around the corner and kept the shop next week as a rental property right so we moved around corner kept the shot. Next year the rental property one of the first tenants in that shot extra property was tariq in his mother so the infamous house burned down story. Was the house that my mother owned. Oh and it was in mount airy not not in not in south philly so the story is to live in this house. Regan and his mom and brother lived in his house. I was over there. I was there we were hanging. We were playing. We were being cousins or whatever and then bouts and we were playing on the remember these little green army men. Yeah that was that was. Are we set up all around the crib and again i'm the older cousin. I'm like killed you. I killed you. You know i want but we we got into the game and i bounced and he continued playing and you know. Evidently the story is he found the lighter. And you know the army men was where were stuck in one particular position. That's the position you amount whether they're one shooting on the ground shooting. You know being the intelligent kid that he was he said. I think i can if i burn this army man. I can change position because it's going to be to wax so you know. He clicked the light old. School lighter me click. The ladder was burned an army man. Of course lighter the lighter now And before you know it you turned around in the curtains on fire and runs downstairs and tells his mom and the whole upstairs is on fire in the house. So yeah that's the that's the that's the that's the ultimate story. But yeah mir that house that the house that caught on fire was actually my mom's rental. Oh okay How does that house that tells the story that he just ran downstairs like he's not at all right. That's what it happens I of course. I had just about your mom and she loves to hearing. Did you learn how to how to sign to that. How that's the crazy shitting so hit so again unpack a little bit. So my mom lost. A heron. Sixteen her sister therese grandma. It was hard of hearing some time on newer. She could hear when you like. Yell aren't dot was death dot had two kids that were both debt and my middle brother was death. You know so we had family. And i just don't understand why i don't know silent. You know why you know why because my mom did launch my mom read litz. Why my mom never learned. Silent was she and and what i did. I was community so my my early business days was while she was doing and building her real estate business. You know. I was the eight year old on the phone translating with the electric company or translating with the contractor like mom. He said it's going to cost. You know six hundred dollars to put in this hot water heater in. She likes shaw. Get the fuck outta here time. It'll cost four hundred dollars. And i'll be like Sir and she'd be like. I heard her tell her fifty. And i'm like bob. He's at four fifty four hundred s. It okay forza. I learned my first negotiating in just handling business and understanding the rhythm of those conversations. Because i'm jay translated from one. That's my mom. Had the late buying houses. Buying property negotiate with contractors. I was the one doing it because she could hear so. She never really learned silent which she obviously knew how to communicate. I think because of that. I never was the height of her number of properties. Like a we had. I mean she's to buy and sell so was never like okay. A buy and hold like my mom had fifty properties all over the city. It was it was a buy and sell thing. But i think she probably you know across my through my high school years like ten fifteen properties around the city that she using the bought held. So are you still in business or have you. Just let them go now. I know i still have. My property is still in some great because will call you some some. Are your parents. Still alive sean. my mom passed away Young she was sixty four when she Fifteen years ago. Yes okay gotcha so You also attended millersville correct. Absolutely all right in a liberal university. I got a use. The one that introduced malik into each other or yes it was so it was me it goes back to answer being competitive right so like i was saying Basketball took me away from you making the money back in the day i was doing shows at why fifty second street you know. That was my trapped by the house. i did the uae now south philly while at second street I always wanted to. Jesse just see like that. Was my goal in life right. Now record demolition. It was with a company called hill records. I with a label was the label was a joint venture between mc grease and bally again.

He did a deal with mc breeze. Who was an artist discombobulated bellator in all of that until right breathe it a sub deal with allow who also was an arts so my label was run by two artists and the over production. Do exactly i'm like. Where's my royalties dog about the trump and that but But yeah so so so you know. I had that i start playing ball. College are calling and thinking about life. Let me take.

Hilas is they go into the summer program I'm up there working in some The first weekend they're up there. I go to the afghan whatever. And they're like yo.

Talking about and from that day literally battled the entire. It was two and a half hour back and forth from that point. They were bonded. You know from hip from a rap perspective. That's when the the you know that that portion of the roots were formed in that kitchen that summer. Moseley universe way. I'd there's the question you you'd be the perfect person to answer. Because normally our guest newark based gessen and they always have latin quarter experience however the philly latin quarter was a spot called after midden at and i never had a guest on the show. That can really explain why the after midnight was so important. Even though i'm of age. I was not allowed to go after midnight. What was what was it like immer now. I know after midnight building as the spaghetti warehouse because it shut down but like what was was the after midnight. The pinnacle or the top place where you could see pop shows at that time. Was that our house of blues. Was that are or wasn't the fifty second street y. Where was philly besides block parties. Where was philly in terms of seeing a show wasn't at the spectrum right so there were sort of two levels to it. You know you had your sorta a call it. The local regional level certain shows you still had some national acts but that local regional level which is me which means you can on any given thursday. Friday saturday and sunday. You can go to a party. Right you had the. Ymca's you had the win. In in winfield you had circuit city. There was a circuit clubs that every week. But you gotta understand this silly back. Then the stars wasn't the rappers. The stars were dj. Right you know what i mean. So when you got the flyers you aren't going to see you know Prince will rock. That was fresh prince his name before fresh prince prince will rock. You're going to see. Dj jazzy jeff. Dj cash money. You were going to see lightning rich. You're going to see. Dj stand back like those. Were the names liars. And when at all of these clubs those are the people who sort of made those rounds and as young teenagers we were like we got the it was almost like a you know who cared who was actually rapid for like jazzy. Jeff said early. I always wanted to be jazzy jazzy. Jeff is guide to me. Like it's amazing that i can call my friend. What is when. I was a kid you know i was like following jazzy. Jeff like you know what i mean like he was icon and during the time he had well he had. I see all these random sees. Would it really matter. So you know you had your dj sirkin silly around all of these clubs that all at a dj stocks avidan also being one of them right was that will grass big victory. Do play absolute masterclass. Yeah massive and the super sees you know what i mean he was he was a he was a stock and vic actually went to my high school so i would go see an arby's on saturday him and his two. Mc's and not come back. Did walking through the halls of high school. And i'm like oh shit that's But yeah so. It was just sort of energy affiliate around the dj's and this was that was the club sir. What after midnight brought was disorder national. Look from a national recording artist dissect. All of the new york people came down to play after midnight. You gotta figure even on the club. Dj circuit was still neighborhood. Right when you went to the fifty second street y. Ninety percent of the people was from westerly. You know what. I mean when you went to you know amid the christian shoot wide ninety percent of the people in south When you went to the after midnight it was people from all over the city. And you have performers from that. You're listening to on lady b's hip hop show and and in mimi's option. Yes so it was like that was like our house of blues. That was where the national acts would come and play and you would see all of the people in the audience from all over the city. At one place where we would all congregate you like the endanger light in quota. You live endanger at all of these places both as far as the culture you know what i mean girls. They're like girls there snatch in guys get their you know that sixers jackets taken in their name belts and all that shit i mean. That's that's that goes along with the culture you want. You don't want experience that stay home. Okay did anyway y. Where'd you allowed to go. I don't understand that. Come on the first root show. Prince's lounge berkinstocks said now crocs. Yes so okay now how you enter. My life was used. You start my first ever bank account. At what point. Are you realizing that that basketball might not be your future. And when does finance enter. And when you were entering finance where you thinking of entertainment finance or reuse thing like of your professional you know make low six figures a year get a bmw nice job and in a wife and two kids in mount airy life like where is this paradigm shift in your life where it's like okay. Money might be in my future low. he's doing. I was looking laughing in my mind. Sean was just about to say darren. But i'm gonna say bad basketball. Stop becoming important my freshman year when my girlfriend at the time and at millersville told me she was pregnant And at that point. I had the growth fuck up so it was a big. Yeah yeah yes. November of my sophomore year. My oldest son was born. I was nineteen years old. A father i was the quote unquote statistic a teenage father. Who wasn't supposed to make it and you know you're supposed to drop out of school and all your dreams are over just supports your kid but again back to my mom and actually Her mother her mother and father. They both looked at both of us. Said all right cool you know young out this but we don't take care of this. The next couple of years gonna take care of this next year. John both graduate. And that's one thing that's not not gonna drop out of school so that support a lot but but also my mom said but you won't get you in a i was always worker anyway But you know you won't take care of to like this isn't all on us. Make sure you get your job or you. If you need it you know you guys. I gotta take care so at that point. Landlords stop playing ball Literally worked two jobs for my sophomore year to year. One one was at a bank in lancaster. pennsylvania one was at kellogg's facility Up there on the weekends i would. They will shut down the serial Whatever that is not treadmill what it calls the assembly several down a serial assembly line. You know on the weekends and they bring people all we do is clean. We claim from ten at night to ten in the morning. Twelve hours two days a weekend and get hate going. So i have two jobs at school And graduated in four years. I was an accounting major. So i like when. Like i was like i wanna do finance i. I was an accounting major. So i was like all right. Let me i guess. Number reserved are are where where i need to be. I started working for the phone company. It was bell atlantic at the time But it's it's variety now And you know just was like going through life. Not knowing where i wanted to be it was eliminating things that i didn't want to do that makes sense so worked in the finance company. I was like oh.

You know again eliminating shit. That i didn't wanna do. That was my that point in my life. That was four five years. It was less about finding my direction. It was more about eliminating things that i did it again. I was going to two weeks in europe. And i had a son.

When serena told me he was gonna drop out of school and come back to philly with you and concentrate on his group and he's taken malik. I was like you go. You know what.

I can say i'll give you to see where we at the time to win two awards as to how i got into this business. The words are richard nichols wile. I'm being the cousin. Smoking weed and drinking liquor. I used to smoke weed. Me and me and rich on the side were forming a relationship. Because i'm also the cousin as in grad school and handling his business rich as all of you who know rich as know he he was divisions and he could see things before. You could see it right so i think during those times where alphabet. I'm just sitting back. And we talked in arguing about shit. And he's schooling me about life and you know why. Nba's don't mean shit real world and all of risk philosophies he's really he's really tested me. He's really tested and remember.

Engineers are absolutely us and Puppies being got. He had to biles array of wine. You know what i mean. We sat there drank a little bit smoke a little bit and nobody was in. I think he was he was he was mixing like a jazzy fat nasty song or something like that and the he was young. I hate this shit. And i was like okay. Which would what do you hate. He was like the fucking management ship. I hate it. And i'm looking at him like what is he talking about And he was like you know just killing agents dealing with these dudes and money you know dealing with the record label and budgets it all of that shit like i it i. That's the part of my job. That i hate anyone in those rich. He's the ultimate visionary ultimate creative fifth. Beatle to you know to to really the you know the third and fourth beetle to tariq's first and second on from a creative perspective in a visionary perspective and what he was saying to me was this. Part of my job is weighing the down. So just how can i help you know. He's an art. This will be going to do you know. He gave care lewis number. I remember you get careless as number you gave me. Somebody's read the label and he gave me a meal. She's number and Call these three. I'm gonna tell him you call him in a. You can take this shit over the rich. i don't. i'm not a dog. I got a job like got a real fucking job down the street. You know what i mean. He's like don't worry about you. Figure it out figure. It literally left the studio as you know richest partner that night and i didn't know shit about the music business but you know i knew finance right and i knew business and i knew the rhythm back my mom right. I knew the rhythm of negotiation. The rhythm of compensation. And i worked at the bank. And i know how to deal with the life folks. You know what i mean. So there's no different than you know. Someone i'm dealing with the ban someone i'm dealing with labels so i sort of fell back on the experience that i had my entire life and enrich gave me the opportunity to figure it out and it was months of me figuring it out. I have certain point wet from me doing two hours of rulers and ten hours of bank work and then as a certain point i you know be in my office to ten at night and realize i haven't done ships from my bank like i just woman phone negotiating toward deals and figuring out you know mileage in if from from london's whatever you know what's the mileage and what's the gas called. You know i've been doing that. So i got to a point where i was like. Oh i again going back to my earlier point. I found what i'm supposed. I've eliminated all of these things that i wasn't i wasn't interested in and finally found my passion or i should say my passion found me and i had to make a decision. I was making six figures at the man was twenty nine thousand seven. I was twenty five years old. Twenty six twenty five years old Making six figures at the you know. And but i went to ultima again. You know my my mom. I want gonna work with. Who worked for torri and his group you know. My mom was like oh really. And she's like is again how you gonna do. I said i know you know it'd be richest partner and we will get us out and my mom being entrepreneur s years. She was like look as long as you can say. Boy there redden. Do you step prayer in jumped out on faith and i remember my first year. I was making six years in the bank and my first year with the reach. I'm a twenty seven thousand dollars and you know took a huge rule. I always the last that. I work the last day that i worked in my life. The last time. I worked a job. Was that last day of the like.

The way that we were living hand to mouth you would do a show nine times out of ten. We you know we get paid in cash. Even though our system was a little bit different it was more of a socialist system. Like you get to really you get you get that sort of thing and had like a little allowance but you know the first time. I've got my advance. You know you. You would have killed me like i spent that shit in three weeks. My wanna get abou- let's see seven thousand dollars worth of records. Yea a bunch of plumas billie jean. I was gonna say giving booms money trying to watch joins glow in the dark like you. Sean hates the story but that he's pissed he's already mad thirty years thirty years later right you. Just you don't think about like. I wasn't thinking about like back in nineteen ninety-three like nine hundred ninety nine seemed like the future like. Oh we won't mean you're that that's the one even coming back from the proceed video. My dad was still like you. Gotta get a real job. Like i didn't see this as a sustainable. So you'll carry when he i ended up. Yes can you explain how an organization with at least thirteen people because we rolled like. There's a ban there's know staff and all those things can you just basically because a lot of people do want to know how the roots been able to be damn thing when on paper we technically soon have. What was the first changes that you may shine came like oh no we got a. We got a million would threaten to fire me. If i ever fucked up now novo going to his clients that have no if you ask me shellshock like if i spend anything over like my nine hundred ninety nine budget. I'm still like a by this bicycle or person. I'm certain i'm good interesting. Thing is because again coming into this business. I didn't i didn't grow up in this business. So i didn't know the norms and the roles and the titles and retains right so when i started working. We're rich you know. i remember. We had a conversation. We were in the studio one day. And i asked him. I said you know what's my title. And he was like hell no my title. You know what i mean. Drew like bats and we sort of settled on these titles of creative manager in business manager right But it it extent my role extended beyond what a traditional business manager did like a business manager in the business is pretty much your accounting or your financial adviser that person build your financial team. Is the hub of your financial team. So that person is the one who interacts with your tax accountant interacts with your investment team interacts with your insurance and your bank and all of the financial activity around your business. He's your cfo For me that was an easy. Sorta title because that is the Similar to the role that. I played at the bank as a private bank. That's what i was doing behind that. Within the individuals. I was the hub of all of their financial activity and using specialists in the bank and bringing them in so i was like cool but my role with roots or was more. You know i was. Also the person that was was responsible for tori tour strategy tour budgets tour execution Every aspect of a tour rich sorta handed that some and again that. That's not your traditional business manager. You'd i mean it's sort of part of the management jobs. We're meeting rich. Sorta had our are are a delineation was all of the business aspects of management dealing with the label. Most businessman does not deal ability. But i was dealing with madison recording budgets and and that type of thing was dealing with making the records the making rea- he was in the studio so so those first couple years was a period of adjustment of both of us. Because i came in on my flat shooting ignorance of the business shit and rich although he was the know upon first sight of you get an argument with them you you think he's the roughest toughest you know dude in a room. Rich was a softy. Like rich like doctor. Yes like anybody anything out of reach unanimity so for me was like i was like dumb wide. We have all of these people around like he's at all because we're developing this and this and that missing that we literally argue back and forth about the usefulness of individuals or why are we paying this out of the roots core money like. Why is this person getting paid out of a roots or money like are they not self sufficient like is this. We have a deal with these people. So i came in and sorta instituted traditional business structure in a nontraditional Try the institute. Traditional business structure in a non traditional business and it was the yang yang of riches. creative A vision as well as socialist mentality mixed with my more capitalist mentality and hardcore vision that sort of form. This nice sort a packet that we ended up right. We ended up with the roots crew. But i also made sure that the roots were cool. We just go with the roots crew. The route probably wouldn't be here by the. I may feel like yes. We got the roots crew. You know what i mean. Which is you know planting seeds for a lot of other people. But i'm gonna make sure that the roots are cooled as well because that is the bus that were all right and it was that sort of that back and forth upfront which was a lot of back and forth that allow us to build the foundation. I'd say by two thousand two thousand three when we start. Sorta roll post Postings fall apart post. Grammy that sort of allowed us to take this. You know this beautiful journey that we've been off the last couple of deputies you'll be the bad cop to riches good cop. I'm sorry At at times. I was most of the time i was the more i was the financial bad cop. Good But i also was the the creative in good cop sometimes riches bad crop that we played yang really well especially with you know the label side of promoters or you know creatives unanimity. We played we played our back. Really what but definitely. Because of my background i played the financial bad and enrich play the good cop because he was doctor. Yes a lot but but we we. We we balance each other. Well i think at the end we at the end we you know we were both managers unanimity like i just said businessman without knowing that business manager was actually a role in the music business. I was like okay. I haven't been able to creative with. But i think that that's the reason why we were able to lay the foundation for the roots. And and i said this before. Now the in other interviews as you know we were also realistic. Yeah like at the end of the day our goal was. Can these guys make enough money. So that they don't have to go get a day job you know and and make money and live off of their art. You know mean. That was our goal. It wasn't like less. Let's let's make sure that american job around in the bay box can have twenty-five cribs around the country. It was like. Can they pay their rent. Can they give their mom some money when she needed for light. Bill can they take lady allan a date. You know what i mean and then go do it all again so. It was like having realistic goals. Understanding what a blue-collar musician is because again from the rich came from the jazz world where it was. You know blue collar musicians. You know what. I mean so understanding that. You know a blue-collar musician is you know. Living off of his his or her art and they're enjoying that versus going and having a substitute teach and jazz clubs at night when they can. You know what i mean so it will that that sort of mentality that we always had an obviously those goals increase over the as we got more successful. You know those we've always into day you know i. Would you know it's funny being these rooms. And i love the roots. I really do the roots. Not name for three route song. You love the concept of the roots community ideas three weeks songs but again for us. That's always been our goal was happen. We take these virtuoso performers. You know to rican amir. How can we make sure that you know they can. They can create a living off of their talent. Because they're super fucking talented and there's nobody out there better than them they may never create a hit ever in life but that shouldn't define you know their future and their ability to earn a living off it. And you're absolutely so you mentioned the the socialist system versus the capitalist system of which you know. I think people think. I'm super exaggerating. When i said like we. We really didn't start as far as means to read like really put ourselves on payroll until like later later later in life whereas absolutely before it was very socialist. Like okay again. You rank paid in your car. Bill gets paid and now and you kind of came in and cleaned up shop like okay. Why are we so do you in hindsight. Do you feel as though that. I think the socialist position sort of kept us pure but did you agree with it because the thing is that i agree with aspects of your enemy i agree with aspects of it but i think i think the way that things were set up People were taking advantage of it and people were taken advantage of rich And i think he. I think he realized that too. I think that's why. I got a call at night from the bank But i agree with aspects of. I agreed with the sort of creative community that was being built and for any community. The one thing that in any creative community any you know sort of a musical movement you know whatever you wanna call it. The one thing that's needed in order to breathe life into it is infrastructure otherwise it's just one of musicians and artists you know doing free eight. Yeah you're not a community or a movement without any infrastructure and will rich hat was the vision to to say okay. We're going to provide that for such right and without that creative infrastructure without that infrastructure the community slash movement slash everything that was happening than beautiful times that we all add from. You know ninety seven to two thousand four on where all of this shit you know really sort of took off. It wouldn't have wouldn't have existed without richard. Richard nichols you know creating that infrastructure. However the problem when you have infrastructure without structure is at infrastructure would've would've eat itself alive because it would have been too many people eating at that same apple. I'm at some point. You've gotta be like cutting his apple and half erica. Amir this everybody else ajar. Y'all can't survive this old so be unanimity. So that's where you know that the balance of men rich at least in that time was was that i provided the structure for the infrastructure. But if it if it were just my way it probably wouldn't have survived either. Because i was too hardcore. You know this is about regan. Amir and i think that that without the i think of the community as well they would have been no black lily and think about all. The people layer black lily. Even the you know the the whole you know talent polycom like all all of that. Not they were core. But they were part of the the orbit that everybody's sort of you know revolved around. So i think you know to your point of me. I think i agreed with a portion of you know the socialist ideas. And i think they they were part of the reason why we've been able to survive but you know if we would have stuck with that. I don't think we'd be where we are at that. Okay talk about the growing. I guess the first two ventures that we really put our eggs and do those baskets was okay player and black lily. Now i remember the beginning. I think i had to really sell you enrich that this was going to be the future by. I don't think rich really saw you know what the hell me an answer is doing you know in the bedroom. Easier sell amir. Which was the easier sell his. Because you know. I i was done before is black. Lily was the russians rights. And so you know the the second third week you know what. I'm saying like really. I'm not exaggerating like beanies. Segel's put out blunt ashes on the floor like everyone in the room is a bonafide celebrity. You know what i'm saying. Music really was the pizza guy. You know what i'm saying. That if the time their regular people using my living room as their hub. And like i live on the block of neighbors looking at me like i'm crazy like all jam until two in the that sort of thing so i you know with the jamia checked out. He'd checked out. Jam says yeah. I call them. We scaring real. My heart was with okay player. Simply because like. I just envision a future where there's a virtual playground contact okay amir and so but it was a hard sell for rich and sean there have been many times where like very like dogs. Let's let it die in. So at what point did you get that. This might be something future so we talk on. Okay player we talking black blackley which only offers either or because i feel like. That's so interesting story so for. Let's talk black release first. Black lily amir told the story of thousand percent. Correct like mike. Lewis started off as the jam. The roof jam session the roots. Jam sessions are epic. You know have been done for years. In various places started in amir's living room and sorta group there When the reuss jam session start happening in clubs i forget the club that maliki yoga used to have and new york. The that club Dan second forty second street. You know we went from there then. We went down to to the wetlands. And but the problem was if it became a all fucking male rappers like a line at the side of the stage of do trying to get up and spit and you know in the community that that that the roots had formed. You know there were female ours. Most notably the jazzy fat masks. And they would either never get an opportunity to get on stage or they'll get on and you know saying you know spor bars of a hook while some random rappers you know. Round of eight hundred eighty six bars or they'd get on at the end of the night. After four hours of energy gone people are leaving right so rich and mercedes and tracy came up with the idea of doing their own jam and in our black lily. I remember it was sort of a play on lilith. Fair is fair. was that thing back then was fair. They came up with the name and the judge massie was also signed to the label motive records and rather than you know and it wasn't a huge like marketing budget that that they were given at that time so you know they came up with the idea of saying you know rather than randomly send our money on you know radio promotion which who knows what that actually gets you. Especially when you're on emerging artists about we pull this money and again back to the seaward. Create this community. Let's build this this this brand. Let's build this event. This weekly of that started off in. New york is weekly event so called black lily which builds from the the energy and style and aura of the jam sessions. Right so blackley was built off of that. It was you know. Here is the the next iteration of the rich jam session and it was funded by by the fan. Nasties marketing budget on. I remember that bet we had was at the wetlands and it was probably like teen people there. You know what i mean. It was no and we continue on a weekly basis and the crowd started coming. People heard about it was free. that was. That was the other part of early on it was three. You know what i mean. We just had the Three social media like market to to get people there but it was free and that free event just started started growing And then eventually moved from new york affiliates at a five spot etcetera etcetera and it grew to become you know what what people know is black willie with ever more than ten dollars never was more than ten dollars and it became an abi cat you know at a certain point so post jazzy. Fat mass. massey's a budget funding it. you know. richard nichols commissions. Were funding because again you got to realize this. This post show on g coming ensue. The full right so it wasn't like we used. Using his routes money to fund his leg lowey unanimity. We got enough. We got enough things at the roots. Money are funding over here. So rich you know. Mainly rich. quite honestly was using the commissions that he was making the roots to fund that five spot burs on the black lily. And to your point we would charge at the door ten dollars that was barely you know covering back law so it was a we lost a lot of money but you know a lot of a lot of big musical movements that you look at them in history You know they didn't make money. I mean they created they create culture. But wasn't it wasn't a profit center got jasmine sullivan fluid. Yes absolutely absolutely so so that. That's the history of sort of black family soul absolute. They held the down again as a family. So we went on okay Lack lilley was pop. Then we built okay player too and we took all of the black lily artists on a layer too. So then what happens to black lily. When they're all out to three months kendra soul bettin in asia and their band. Which at the time again. They handle money at the time so they just pick musicians that were passionate about this toy store at the beginning you know. Remember me ritual look at them like they sloppy shit like fourteen and angel. But they're bad it was just sloppiness but after four five six seven ten weeks everybody comes back off the road it. They owned lack lily. They define black gum yet. Routes would come and perform at black lily and people would be like cool. That's cool with. Where's very injury. And they still. I mean against shot both of them because they still one of my favorite groups. I loved them But yeah so. That's that's the black early story. I mean okay player. You're right you had visit I stepped in early on. Because i just wanted to make sure there was some destruction era again. I didn't want this to be okay. A mere starting this business in his bedroom. He's gonna eat into our roots prophets that we won't be able to pay for tour bus on the next tour because you know he's buying everybody computers united but which all bill was immediately special again the community that that that that that formed around okay play. We've already to lessen exploring the four things absolutely and and the relationships and the music and artists and you know then will. I am was like yo. Y'all i would him. Look you know what. I mean like said something like that. Y'all would've i facebook is. It was a it was all about. The community is less about you know artists websites. Like that's how we went into it right like that's build this website. Let's build that website. But it helps you you you enhance your participation and angie's vision and craziness you know what i mean weren't able to able to attract this. Sorta community that that that has has continued to grow in bill What were the first steps into you. Really building coming outside of just keeping us keeping the lights on for us and then i was next two phases of your your empire as as far as Tour managing other artists. Like what was your first day in tour managing artists that weren't routes based so so or businessman. We don't and this. This is a study in my life like the title know my title. I don't know what it is like to call myself a manager. That's what i say a manager because people kinda understand that. But i do more. It's not the traditional mid anyhow. My second client was a young lady out of philadelphia. That i've nelson's high school by the name of jill scott Jilin i went two brothers to high schools. I went to central. She went to girls high. I'm new or in high school We we went on. We went on a a prompt together. Okay because she's already told this story so we needed sound the same. Y'all went to on a problem with a guy. I went on a prom with a young lady after the after the great events So we were all at the prom together. Then the next day it was like slow couples that were supposed to go to great adventure. The three couples in me. My date didn't go with so it. Was you know. I was the third wheel. And whatever you wanna call it so you know We hung out then. And i sort of lost touch joe after high school like you know what i may. She was the girls hot. And joel. And i remember having a cassette to re giving me a cassette with the original. You've got me beat. An hooks and on the cassette was written the jail song. I don't be remembered as we used to be. Called the jail era. judaism right. yeah it was just ignore. I was like oh just banging like joe. Some joe saw anyhow at certain point we were on tour and we were at whatever that venue that is across the street from park in boston. You know that little club ponte. That's right across the street. From fenway park. It's not the it's not the middle east or what is right across the freeway on we were. We were shot and I heard this voice from the stage and it was jill singing And i walked out. And i'm looking at her. She's looking at me. And i'm like jill scott like you are the jill song. She was like she on. You know what i mean. That was like the first time we connected with at soundcheck when she came out Doing doing some shows at the roots and her husband ex husband now was managing are at the time and she had her and her lawyer has negotiate with me the deal terms to get on that tour and i think she had no a lawyer. That was like you know she was a lawyer. She wasn't entertainment lori. It might have been her girlfriend so you know what i'm saying. That happened to be a lawyer and she was asking for all kinds of shit. Like i was like joe's we are like. Do you understand what this is like. I'm gonna give you different amount of money and this is outright like you know. She's like she. Is the vibe between each. We play in house of blues. Like what are you talking but with my friend because she was my friend or you know i had known her. I called her allies l. Said yup. i'm just going to be peace bikes like this lawyer. She has no idea what she's talking about and she may ruin relationships. Yes she on. If it wasn't me i would be like fuck this girl. Lets you know. We'll figure out how we do. This is crazy right. So i think elisa appreciated that and a few months you know then. Joe became start putting her record together such jazz and you know all of that record came out july of two thousand two thousand and look i think later in the fall like she was everything she was grinding or whatever and they call me and was like yo. Can you come be a part of our team. And i was like what. What do you want me again. It's almost like richard nicholas call. I was like what do you. what do you want me to do. And they were like you know. I don't know we don't know what we're doing. 'em you work with the roots. You know what you're doing and we trust you that was basic the basic premise of relationship in the call. And the start of our relationship. So again. I came in leveraging what i knew finance so i stepped in and looked at the money and try to make sure everything was structure. Right business live came in and immediately. Took over all the touring. Because i was the roots guy. We were doing two hundred shows a year like this is how you organize your touring etc etc. And i just can't play my roles again. I never had a title. We always called ourselves business parks because you know she went through a couple managers and then she's like this manages shitting working a mere. Sean we just rocked together. We're business partners but people call me our business manager early people to this day Call me her manager. Business smart you just you just bill right we build it so jill second client and thankfully both the roots in my first two clients always will be my last two. You know what i mean. We've been together. You know multiple decades My third client though is the one who sorta Set my trajectory to wear you know that the next phase of my business was and that was you know me getting a call from the west in two thousand four when kanye had college drop out and wanted to do a tour. You know He wanted to do a tour. He wanted to do a college tour and nobody on his team had ever worked with a torn artists his managers at the time g roberson news opponent out brand. If they all at that point all be managed with produces head just blaze the. Yeah you know remember. Yeah was superstar producer them. We can artists. They were like a manager of all the superstar produced shit about tour The business manager that he had kellogg and amazon. I was the company in a. They were filming. See me. you know they. They didn't have any folks so they didn't know much about torn and his agent was ladyman. Carrot luke's darren sold them. You need to talk to this guy sean. Because he can organize strategize. You'll have no shit right. So they flew me out. The la interviewed like three people and they hired me on the spot mask. But as you mentioned that we did two hundred shows a year. where was that common knowledge. Was that common knowledge in the business of like how the roots keep like able to you know. Is that normal for a music active. Do that many shows like what does a normal act do in terms like what is it what is it gang starr doing that time period. So so you gotta think about the time period that we're in time period that we're in touring wasn't sexy. I mean touring wasn't a thing especially in black culture in all rock world which is all rock slash jammed barren world which you know amir's was our model. That's the model that me you rich. Tariq's built around was like you know the rock or jam. Bamboo shoots one hundred and fifty two hundred show. The year was normal with that world because number one. These bands grew up as fans of bands. You know what i mean. So it was part of their culture their favorite bands when they were growing up and playing that its new garage wherever the fuck they. They learn their music. Their favorite bands they experienced lives live was part of their culture. Our culture you know as as consumers of black music you know especially hip hop live wasn't insane so we were a huge anomaly within hip hop by doing all those shows hypoxia. Was you know a bad boy versus what you know what i mean. You're not in a bigger reno with with with pyro in all of that. You're not really touring going to have fresh or whatever you won't have to your big publishing checks you're going to have to your data's. Do are you going to get another band from the label. That's how you made your money like you make money on the road. Who did that so for us. We were on anomaly. In hip-hop we were on nominally in black news it by doing all of that so from a from overall artists perspective in fan perspective. They probably didn't recognize it but the business people in the music industry recognized the label heads. The label exempts the agents. You know what i mean. They all realize like oh shit. The roots unanimity. They're doing that thing and they're alive. Bang you know so. That's how i was recognized. Ru cara lewis to be recommended kanye because of the business that we built by doing two hundred shows a year and making sure it's organized they can show where you know again simple shit. We're on time. You know what i mean. We're we perform. We collect our money. We pay our bills and we wake up do it another day. You know what i mean. That's sort of back to the blue collar. Blue collar musician strike. Ask wimmer questions inside of this question again. like if you look at marketplace's and maybe this is more an agent question. Maybe this the carolinas episode. I don't know. But if as far as i know there's really around the world would you say that there's maybe at the most twenty three markets for us for the for the routes it uses as an example like how many are there and my heart able you pass. Is it normal for an artist. Because that's the thing. I want to convey to people. Is it normal for an artist to play new york city seven times a year l. Out like how are you. I just had this conversation. I had this conversation with an age. Because again you gotta think about the timeframe that we were in versus timeframe now like right now it allowed in. Because you know. I'm sure we'll get to the line nations out of my life but because i'm working with artists from a different perspective you know. It is short term gratification. It is yeah. I play the house of moves last tour. Why aren't are playing. Know hammerstein ballroom this tour. I wanna be a madison square garden album. You know what i mean. And i'm like yo trip in like this twenty. He's not happen. Yeah you we. We would from a ruse perspective. We played the house of blues. More fifteen and we're happy about it and halloween. Arnold increase of finance was instead of trying to reach too far on venue size. We would just increase the ticket. Price mean so. That's how we went from canals dollars a show that twelve five. Say that new year's eve so that so that part of it. I mean you know we. Don't you know we there are there are probably you know a good thirty to thirty five cities if you're popular hip hop artists in the us that you can play. If you're if you're you're drake. You can go anywhere in oregon and tallahassee florida. And you can. You can hit those forty and fifty if you know tertiary or whatever is the honor -ciary markets but for most successful artists your between twenty five and thirty mark in the us in europe you have multiple markets in the uk. You know dependent on again. How big you are among from a pop culture perspective from pop culture perspective dependent. How big you are you have multiple marks in the uk. And then you have a handful in europe in in the continent like you're going to you know you're basically one city per country. You're doing your towers. Do you know you might hit like helsinki like you might save germany. You can hit two or three cities alien fucking birthday. Maybe do those. Last time i went to berlin ago. Yeah so you know if there isn't a ton now what's let's open the market if festivals. Because you have festivals in these secondary cities in europe now where you can go to. Leon the whatever today oh you can go to To to portugal where you can't go to a hard ticket there you can go so that's opened up. The amount of markets is the the sort of festival economy over the last decade but there is a limited market and for us what we did as we continue to go back and play markets because you build that audience one show one fan out of town him and when it's time to grow you'll know grow and it should be noted by this time by the time you get the kong ayu not a one man band right. There's like the office. Maybe you've got some help or are you still here. Yeah yeah right around. Jill right around jill when i hit joel. I started a higher. It's like okay. now. I got the routes. It was just me. I would just figure out what the hell i was doing when i got jill like oh i got a business you know time i got the yeah you i never. I never stacked up to a thousand. People in sixteen. Opposites has always been a pretty small pretty small operation but but but yeah. Yeah so by the time i got the cognac i had. I had okay so in building your clientele which in a drake is well more than that will name all your clients. 'cause i know latifah and again i know you don't have a title but as far as i know if money is coming down the pike to you you are in some you're under that management umbro. Yeah yeah yeah it was. It was so. That's why. I say kanye had this weird role of wasn't as manager. I wasn't as business manager. I wasn't his agent. I wasn't as all of that. I was just a consultant in torrance with him. We we worked on that very first college tour. Which was the school spirit tour from college dropout in you know and when i say work i mean i built as more tour strategy like i hire the tour manage. I hire the production manager. I hired the whole team And i worked with the agent and work on overall strategy started with him on colleges and i think the last tour i did with him was washed thrown Him jay and i saw the took that trajectory went from with him on went from clubs. Theaters amphitheaters arenas the states. You know an idol. Learn the big business of touring through my experience with kanye. West's as i started building that reputation other and building. My relationships other artists started coming to me for that work. So g rogerson is next client after kanye and two thousand seven was low and again. This is two thousand seven two thousand eight little way. You know he releases. Carter three three record billion first world a million of those weeks. He's no longer some some hood as hip hop artists. A driving pop culture. But his touring was on some other shit like he was still getting brown paper bags and shiploads so g was like yogurt. Guy just did glowing dark tour. Who guy we need to bring him over here. So cortez hire me again. Wasn't waiting visit. Sandra wasn't ways. Manager was just this guy who came in and built his touring business and we went from. You know strip clubs in paper bags to you know. I am music tour. Which is the first store and then we did. I am still music tour after he got out of jail. And we've done america's most wanted you know built data on that first tour weighing you know. He had a bunch of artists that he was developing on this random tour bus and on that bus was draped a young young gentleman by the name of drake among others. So you know. I started working with g cortez and i started working with drake early on and built the soda infrastructure for him for me. My role was story. You know what i mean. And i helped you know with his agent Rob gibbs help. Build his early touring career. I think the last tour i would. Drake was club paradise When i had just just how the puzzle works on the first europe to european sorted i did with drake drake chosen opener by the name of j cole. You know j cole. And his management team. I had newest management t new my wife's through the business and on that europe tour we built and they call me in in in in london. They called in their their dressing. Room was like sean. I need you to help us. You know what you're doing with drake what you wait. I need you to help us. So i worked with coal from the friday night lights period on up through his first arena tour army. A lot of the roles are played with artists. because i'm building their touring. I'm also educating their team. So i sorta work myself out of a job at certain points. I feel like with was gay. When when drake's contract was up with with cortez and data management company in his management team. Who came on is as bright. I you know you know sort of naive. Toronto kids but but super smart unanimity. They come ask me questions. They see how the shoot run like is not. It's not rocket science. It's like you're smart in your attempt. You pay attention to detail. You can do this right so at a certain point. They're like all right. Cool sean i good jayco same. Same thing j. crew. I love them. I love them because they were super smart. A thought out of the box they will always individual never really followed a pattern. Adam we would always talk about touring and visit. Crop gives again that agent and at a certain point they were like. Oh you know your resources of my resources now. I know i know a rigor. What a rigor does. And i know i can call. The rigor hung my life last source. I don't need you know. But i don't mind that because i think that's harder i'll use the l. Were rbis sorta my legacy in the businesses. I am diane. I am teaching these young. You know super smart future executives. They taurean game. So i went from coal. Nikki wayne cole. Nicky drake You know and a few others but that was sort of and also i think that giant is you teach them how to do for themselves not by themselves. But you know teaching them like yo. You can do this for yourself. You know what. I'm saying the resources that are available to you absolutely now without it being all gotcha journalism. No no no this. What can you talk about managing expectations. You can actually use me as an example. I mean i. I would like to think that you know you've only had maybe two or three of those for him. Amir phone calls of what i one time. I miss read a price on a very on a particular or on a simple item a mattress and mattress. While i okay. I graduated from wwltv mattress. Oh shit okay. Rich put me onto my mainly wanna hastened mattresses and they're extremely pricey google. The thing was they saw me walking in the door. They must have thought. I was a football player. Play with the giants. Or whatever. I came in and i will be the first. Sorry you got a king. Because i'm just looking at a queen. So they take what kind of what kind of what kind of mattresses when you go in the haste and have lots they. They are as those two. They're supposed to you. Try one bid. And i still feel like they lie. I feel like they lie to you and make that initial bed. So uber comfortable. Then he reminds like. Let me try one. What's that over there are this is you know maybe two hundred more and he met one and then they got you then. They're like all right. Let's go to these is actually just brought me to the top of the line. John i look at the price because again richest like i think. I think you better circulation for you eggs and you get this hastens bit so i got in the bed like you lay down for ten minutes and then i'll say i fell asleep. Okay great i'll i'll take it and yours number and banks and i never looked at the price because you know at that time. Getting a w hotel bed was a big deal because w hotel minimum. Lighten seventeen hundred bucks again. Which was expensive for w hotel bid. I didn't realize that. I just purchased a six figure bed. Wow one hundred thousand dollars. I look at the price. The whole night is bid Framing hey two dots over the overseas. Visit every monday right again. What has two dots over to take. All a is the white person dots. There's like shit wall anyway so cut to eight o'clock in the morning the next day you you would have thought iran. Everybody's mom over with the car. They're like really. It's come to this now like we we give you an inch and this is what it is like. What the column me and like they they were it was he. The thing was is that sean had some other clients that he's not naming right now. That have done this. It you get a check and you wanna the fuck out and fifteen minutes into this curse out. I realized that. Oh shit. I just brought a one hundred thousand dollar bid my bad and of course got the price i can't afford or that. They told me my budget was but the whole point was. How do you manage expectations. Because you are managing acts in dealing with their money. Post two thousand. Its way it's way past that baller stage how are you are you having conversations with them at the top of of your business relationship. Will you tell them like if you color within these lines and live data or you or dislike you. Just get the money from you know. Cincinnati ohio I'll see you later. How do you manage manage medications. As one of the key things to being a manager a successful manager in music and film and tv or or any sort of creative. John right you know he goes when you're dealing with creatives in apple again. I didn't come in knowing this year. Like i've just learned it. You know on the backs of my clients like dealing with you in dealing with tariq dealing with jill just understanding the motivational aspects the the aspirational aspects. That each of you have what inspires you. What motivates you what. Buttons can be pushed psychology right. It's all psychology. That's that's the most important part of being a manager s most important part of being in any relationship right is finding a give and take like allergy. So that's whether we're talking about a mattress or you know we're talking about you. Know damn i wish. Amir ended the show with hong versus that song. Like how can. I have this conversation with him knowing that this is his world. But i know i'm in the crowd and unanimity so it's psychology is understanding the give and take it's compromised one lesson that i learned county told me and i've taken is throughout my career So this is two thousand six. I thank seven whenever that year whenever we started the glow in the dark. And again i'm four years conway is point. We've done three or four tours together. You know what i mean. We have a level of trust. He knows me. you know. meaning how. I think So we're going. On this. This this big biggest service career biggest mockery unanimity and i go out and specifically go in higher the soda logistics team. I put all star team together. He all creates by touch none as shit but he allowed me As did wayne and others said like are. Give me the team. That's going to properly execute this. So i go a higher curtis battles who number one is black. A number two is eminem's manager and at that time two thousand sixty thousand seven eminem's will fight isn't stadiums. Shit's i've got the top. Black touring production manager. You are bringing the tour. Manage are bringing all of the tech teams. I'm hiring all of the logistics. He's dealing with the creative. At a certain point. I start calling on people. I'm putting together. My budget's is going back and forth with the agent. Doing venue deals call it a venues arguing with them over our point and everybody went home like literally. Nobody would return my call. Curtis that return my call eight returned my call like nobody for call and i'm like what is going on and it was like a two week period. I'm in the middle of planning. I can't get any information. I'm calling you know miss west mom. She's like they show him out. I don't know everything's cool to me. You want me to ask around them. Like non michael get you to let me figure it out after two week. Period kayak caused me like. Oh can you come to la tomorrow like you know. I fly to la go to his crib sitting liberal. He's on his computer and he turns a computerized now. Mike what's this he's like. The tour is the created. Would you walk me through it. And i'm like yo crazy that i'm like yo. What what the fuck just cost like i. I haven't talked to. Nobody like i call. Everybody said if you talked to show g your fire. I was like why. Why did you do that. And he said because. I know if i wasn't able to get my full creative vision would have talked to you along the way you know i would have made a left turn and i would not have been able to get a full creative visit out because you would have been you know asking me how much things cost. And how we're gonna move this and not iraq. I got my full creative vision out now. Now tell me what you think about it. Let's now. Lena taught me like that was a a really deep lesson on how to work in deal with creates because at the end of the day. Y'all at a motherfucker amir fontenay to wreak. Whoever it is. That's driving his car. You know what i mean. I just got into exactly. I just gotta make sure that it got gas and oil in it. It's gonna get to where needed need to get to an end gonna break down and when you get there you got some money right. So the show. They've not going holiday on jay. Don't exactly or even if the show is good and you are able to do what you wanted to do. Creatively you're going to fill and for being emphasis. You going blame sean g you don't let it out so that lesson. That did that lesson too. Kindly taught me. I've taken throughout my career on working with creative. It is managing expectations but is also a balance and making sure that look i mean that that matchless but we saw stories in there where you know there have been things that she needed or you want it and you know we talked about it and i'm like you know what this is. What this law fucker work is ass off this. Why he's up twenty three hours a day to be able to do what i think is dumb shit. But it's aspirational ship or you. So i can't i can't give i can't overlay my thoughts on your creative vision. And what you i just got to put the barriers bowl creatively. Businesswise money whatever. It is the barriers. So you don't fall off the highway. You're driving a car shine. Can you tell us a time when it comes to the roots jill. What was the deal that you've made that really made you take a step back and like pass yourself on the shoulder or really go buff yes like i'm only doing what i feel like it's fulfilling now and like we done this shit. Nobody else has done this shit like this is bucking phenomenal. I don't think there's i you know. I i don't i don't think there's one deal i mean i don't think there's we. There's not like one big. Branding deal one even even tonight. Show dealer what i give it. Would i smile. I thought now. I mean even who's picnic. We're not there like the thing about the roots is the thing that keeps us going is. We'd never fucking the rides like right right. It's never like arrives to whatever that mythical place is that you think you need to get to. We're we're always motivated to either do more or diversify you know when i do i to be a moment where you went. They didn't think we could do this and we did that. Shit oh okay okay. That's for the weekend was the respect of new york okay. It was when we did when we did. We did a bryant. I i i literally stood at the back of the park. We were on with wu. And you know. I looked up in got software rich. I was like yeah. Look look what the fuck you remember that night man. We talked that night You know. I think i don't think what was on but it was Some on but we was talking. And you kinda give us like yeah man like this ship was work in what he was like. You was us giving up. So i remember it being a big game. Y'all yeah ruth technic. New york was probably that that moment and it wasn't a deal but it was that moment. Where i you know what i mean like. Okay you know we. We're there but again. I think is. The concert is the constant growth. Like it's the it's the what's the what's the Tortoise versus the hair we ask that. I'm happy when i'm happy when alicia keys. Twenty years into her career makes a fucking song called. Jill scott you know what i mean. That makes me happy. Because that shows all of the work that jill put in and i was able to assist. You know it's being recognized. I'm happy when quest love is. Dj saying the jay z. And beyond say asta party and killing it. You know what i mean everybody. There is like twenty five thirty years in. It's just a constant ascension of people that you know over the years. Everybody always turned. You know who these guys are heard from philly but you know we at the end of the day as long as we constantly ascend creatively as long we've diversified business lines and we can make sure that we follow our own dreams and every time we achievable goal reset and go for more knows.

What comes next for ford. It's doing what we've done for over a century building and facing any problems with integrity empathy and the strength to outlast. The ford will always pivot to do the right thing and to build for who and what matters most community built for america built ford proud right so i guess for you me personally you know. Two thousand fourteen was definitely a turning point. wants Richard of Of kimia and you know. I i definitely was going out my mind during that time period And you know realize that it was it was gonna be shift for all of us. You know i was like whoa dan like now. You know any creative musical create light. Usually i have rich to bounce off and there's always that eight. Am phone call. That you have with rich is weird. 'cause rich had adm phone calls with everyone. I'm trying to call every day. We're rich. I don't know how he did this right. Exactly like in my mind is like grinch you up at like eight seventeen in your off at eleven but everyone so what in my mind. I was just like well. Shit like shawn's the suit too rigid creative. Now someone's going to have to be creative. And i'm gonna have to do things that i hate doing like vocal takes and like sitting there patiently like putting stuff together so talk about the subject. 'cause i guess that's the period in which you made the decision to at that point you would you. Would you were developing sports. Entertainment from Seo sem yeah you do have You know basketball players yet. You're managing business. Managing all these people keep talking about the transition from sort of amalgamating. Your your company and to maverick which then goes into live nation like how does it But before that. I wanna to talk about two thousand fourteen. Because you're right you know at that moment when we all realized that rich liz. Liz was on his way out The first thing is rich being rich at you know he was he was prepping me for it. You know rich with forever before for years Just you know in thinking back on it just to conversations. We were having and shit that we were talking about and responsibilities that were normally his and the creative side that he would be like asking my opinion. And i'm like you really want you. In my opinion in front of me you know he would always say. I was wrong without gave my opinion but he was asking my opinion and things. You know the which photo good like you often. You know that but he was prepping me for two thousand fourteen. And i don't know if you remember. I had a conversation you to read. You know i said look. I'm going to step up and do a lot of you. Know what i mean but i am not going to step into. The shoes of richard nichols from a creative perspective. I can do a lot leeann. I can build this you know tours and festivals in ideas and hire people to come build your dream. I can't. I can't make records. I can't do vocal tics. That's just not why you know what i mean. You guys are gonna have to step up as well. It's not just me stepping out so you're going to have to step up because this is a big ass boy that we both got phil and i think it is. It is that sort of combination of migr oath in the two of you individually growing. That is the reason why you know. Six seven eight hopefully ten fifteen twenty years after rich. You know we're still so the building growing driving But far as you know where. I was visits wise. I mean it's funny because two thousand fourteen. Two thousand fifteen was the year that i sold my portion of my quote unquote management business into live nation into maverick. You know and and live nation. Was building this mega management company called. Maverick an dial theory was the head of the guy of the manager of u2. Madonna you broadened clarence balding. Who the manager of jason. Aldean and rascal flatts deny playing. They brought an atom in larry rudolph. Who would manage that. The time miley cyrus and britney spears so you had on a mac folks and yet so at a at a certain point these were all the deals that are done and i guess someone within livenation said you got a whole bunch of white men enemy so they went after my partner g roberson number g roberson from then. I met him yet. They went after him and said okay. You manage kanye west new managing you manage a low wayne i you know. Let's do a deal Little bit of a sidebar. All of these toward deals. That i was doing you know kind yet. Way drake maki. I was on the other side of the table from a company live nation. So i was doing. These deals from with one nation. So they knew me as the manager black. Do that did all of the big black tours. The guy who i was negotiating with the other side was a gentleman by the name of allah. How heyman amy. Oh you most successful. Black concert promoter in the history of the game bar none and he sense right now. Manages floyd mayweather. He's the most accessible. Boxing promoter in the history of the game. Bigger than don king. And bob arum all right now and this was he was he the one behind the superfan. Rick james michael jackson. How amy mary. J. blah he's he's he's let's get him on the show sign. So so i'm negotiating. These big deals with als on the other side of the table. Like this little motherfucker knows what he's talking about. You know what i mean. Because you know he's like i never dealt with a young black man who knows storing like you do. I'm so back to the mabrouk thing when live nations last. Maverick goes and tries to by. Jiro versus company out. Hayman tells livenation well. Gee roberson is great. But this guy. Sean g over here. He's the operate you know what i mean. So if you're gonna because at this time need g. Court says had similar clients the we have three different companies had hip hop nineteen seventy eight. I had sem g. Cortez have brian and so in order to sort of complete that purchase. They said okay. We're going to buy g roberson company. We're going buy cortez bryant. We're gonna by showing g because that is the machine that makes all of this work and we're going to merge them together and then put them onto mavericks so that was that deal in two thousand fifteen where i brought. Did they bought into my car. So company to live nation bedfellows shy. I'm sorry i was just thinking. I was like so you got management mixed in with live shows in production. I'm just thinking like lab named it dipping. i'd we may come live nation percents I mean shit. Michael repeating those one or two smartest executives in the business in may for him He calls it a flywheel and for him it. Is you know when he started when he took over live. Nation live nation was a bunch of individual regional promotes. Your guy new york. You know what. I mean and you had electric factory concerts in philly cellar door concerts and these would just end. Independent individual companies was repeal was able to do was merge all of these if was it was actually clear channel prior to repeat. No but you know what came out of the channel. Divestiture was if merged entity of all of these individual regional promoters that created this. One metre promoter business. But what a lot of people don't understand on a promoter side from the live show you you don't make no money from a margin perspective. The artists makes all right. You know what i mean. Okay i have come coming performance and i do a deal with him ultimately in success. He's gonna walk out with eighty five ninety percent of the of the money. You know what. I mean the promoter margins of five to ten percent so what what repeal did which was intelligent. Super super genius was he said. Okay i'm gonna build flywheel around. The shows have shows which are the volume business low margin but volume thousands of thousands. A shows i'm heaven any and when you pay for parking and peanuts and popcorn at the shows you know i'll make money off of that. I'm a happy medium sponsorship at cells sponsorship at the venues so he's built a fly will business is almost like mcdonald's like you know famous with donald quote. He's like. I'm not in the hamburger business. I'm in the real estate business. I'm gonna but the hamburgers bring you in the show. Bring you in. Yeah so your point. Lie you know. It's your hand is in different areas. But it's all sort of fly will works together. And you know that in but again i came in under the auspices of g roberson partner in that. Was that was maverick. Man is funny. Because i i kid guy about this but you know when i came in with the roots and joe got. We were like the folks. That didn't below isn't honest. wasn't arena arts. Every single artists of maverick was an arena. Artist except the roots. Jill scott's but over time you know they start dislike us like i said earlier like over time you know. The the managers started to respect you know. Oh shit the roots. Yeah oh shit. Jill scott and you know they start calling i. Hey connecting chris loud coming up for this or you know when i think the key that the pinnacle of that sort of disrespect at the beginning ultimately led to respect was win. A youtube called asset. The roots can open Know if the route guests on their set at madison square garden and you know how they came out right in the middle maskco. Excuse so yeah. So i mean that was. That's how i got into live nation. That was through. You hear me on the slack managers and these are the three that she on him. By sam out though jill a sells out. Madison square garden does not. I mean that's one of the like we have. We have sold out madison square garden. Yes but you know. Save for matt neal. So class of two thousand jill. Erica a match. Well and mary are probably the three and and believe it or not you. Ken are probably the the the the forum as long as you. But even then you know if tickets going on sale now for look erica. Is i've been down from day one but isn't going to sell out madison square garden by yourself or maybe you know we never sold by ourselves. It's all about strategic packaging. We sold it out with maxwell jila maxwell we the two nights massive square garden together all right match. Well a mary sold out. So it's about strategic. Part of the touring is strategic package. Allow amphitheaters with senator water with joe. Erica and and latifa erica. Sold-out barclays last year was erica. Anthony hamilton who also you against you. Tj the beauty about that that that that world is. You can strategically package and oneplus. One can equal three or four. And that's where you get fifteen sixteen seventeen on their own. They're probably like five six thousand but when when you put them together becomes an event in that line of thought kind of lead to why there needs to be alive nation urban absolutely. I mean you know. Once i was in live nation officially with the venture management. I just i just ear beat. I was like yo you know. Y'all not really fucking with black culture at the end of the day nation at that point did big really well. Meaning you know. Drake blows up. He goes to arenas no one does big better. You know i'm jay z. Beyond say don't stadiums. They do big very well. But incubating culture building partnerships building festivals that our curated for specific audience i e black audience. They didn't do that at all so after a year. Me air beat you. Know the ceo and chief strategy officer at the time They you know gave me an opportunity instead. Okay you want to do this. You think as an opportunity. You're an entrepreneur checked. You we already have a deal with you. Go build it. And i feel that was the emphasis besides the roots picnic. What did you bill. The first three deals on that. I did the first deal was i flew to dallas. I sat with a gentleman by the name of kurt. Frankel and i said kurt. You are jay z of gospel. Use it. why don't you have your own Why don't you have your own festival. Why don't you have your own sumit's he said because no one's ever asked so that year launched the kirk franklin exodus music and arts festival which is the biggest most successful gospel music festival in the country I say gospel music gentlemen. Because bishop jakes as you know the the essence of gospel but it's bigger than music. You know what i mean. It's it's every his is much bigger. But you know we've had we've had you know all of the who's who of gospel has performed on and next year this year we were supposed to but next year we're going to expand it to its in dallas now but we're going to expand its multiple markets. So that was deal number one deal. Number two is I called a fellow philadelphian by the name. Joy carter who is running spotify at the time spotify had this playlist called rat. Caviar which was driving edgy elliott at that point rat. Caviar was what michele deejays were to us. Back in the day where it's like. This is how rat artists get wrote. You gotta get on the rap cavalier list. They had troy. Troy was running the company and and to masa good friend of mine was was he was rat cab. Yeah he was the jury. So i went to them and said you know you are the new radio and really the only self sustaining profitable model in the radio. Space is radio show. Summer jams powerhouses. So let's build ally bitter rations of your platelets. Conrad caviar lie. So we built that. If the fifty venture between me at livenation urban cabbie and spotify and we took him built that music series and the third deal at i did is identified. These two young brothers in see that had their finger on a false a culture had like this many sort of smallish estival that they did did like seven eight thousand people. It was called broccoli city berkeley city and i came on my radar because as i was as i booked the roots picnic every year. Of course i'm on my own shit. I'm like i'm the best curator in this in the face. You know what i mean. And agents in artists are saying. I'll play the roost. Picnic is always pretty broccoli city. So i went on a mission. Like what the hell is brackley city and i went and met with his brothers. Marcus and brandon who really young brothers and from north carolina both from from a brand rings road us yep and and i invested in them. I didn't try to take over at it. Trying to make glad nation urban festival. I said look you guys got a vision. You got a finger on the pulse of culture. You know your audience. What i wanna do is build put invest in build the infrastructure for you so that you can grow in scale and we went from seven eight thousand people to thirty five thousand people. I moved to k stadium and building grew and this year. We didn't go down would have fifty thousand. It's the largest gathering black millennials in the world. I'm the oldest person are by far. It's eighteen here. Ian and so that was that was the third thing i mean sedan. I partnered with her Gabby with artists her. We both festival called lights on festival in the bay area. You know we've. I've taken a start producing the miami jazz at the garden. Festival in in in dc do some smaller Emerging artists platforms audio. Mac and others game shows. I the first three deals that i did those. Can you explain how you build a festival from the ground up. Like one of the one of the times where dread the most as a philadelphian is usually a round march. 'cause that's when everyone starts hitting me up like yo can i hit on routes picnic and up. We start building the picnic two months after the roots picnic. Like can you just explain what goes into building a festival like the 'cause you have to make the like this done ahead of time is like how do you how hands on is it for you. I mean it it. It never stops is twelve months a year. You know what i mean. you know you talk about the roose. Can you talk about broccoli. City can talk about some of the some of the events that we have that. I have it it there. There's a. there's a process to it where it goes from like you said you know. Let's say a festival starts in the fall festival plays in the summer. Usually you know late summer is you know idei Sometimes actually takes two or three years for the picnic most We've talked about two years prior. I talked about hurrell two years prior and it's two years in the deal. You know what i mean. Same thing with With with United we talked about. So you know that issue process never stops but you know it starts soon as the previous year ends. Then you go into the booking process because as the festival economy a market has gotten bigger. There's more competition space. We were we. Were the only ones that were looking for. Sorta alternative urban black rb like nobody else no other option so we can you know call and be like what's up. You wanna play it. Now you know between the sort of regular mega all things to all people festivals like bonnaroo. Who's and the cello. That are that are now being tencent. Black Between those and then the other you know sort of culture facing festivals. Now there's a lot of competition so you start that booking process you know nine ten eleven months in advance and you need to. Have you got a team. Young people that have their finger on a pulse. The culture as you know what. I send out a group checks our entire t. Who you are listening to who you want to read some who you wanna mirrored somebody who you want don anyone you know out there like talk to me. Send me name. Send me send me clips. Because you almost have to be a predictor of what's going to be hot too at two periods a in your tickets go on sale embiid when you play and probably to. His story was napping ongoing events. Thank you don't know what's his name is. Mack lamar got back with more right in the nick of time of like i mean yeah. There's a lot of stories like we got kid cutty like you know what i mean. Super early clean the weekend Yes but again. That's a teat s. A team based effort is not just showing g or mere top sitting in our rooms. You know saying this hot. It's a team based at both official but then also by the last three years. My son has booked for my fifteen year old. I'm like shaw. Who poplar like. Oh you gotta get young boy. You gotta get this person you've got to get you know what i mean because it's balanced so that's a quick callback because we talked about your first son but can you just tell people which i son is doing. Now dare you darren's a sports agent esa living drinks just need to la having babies never stop processing. There is this you know it never stopped because once you book in the marketing you know what i mean and you got to put the marketing plan to gather. You've gotta understand what the marketplace is saying. You gotta understand how you hit your audience. You understand how to break through the clutter. You gotta understand when other festivals are announcing and then once you get out of the marketing phase hopefully sell tickets quickly and then execution. You know what i mean. You're you're you're you're transforming empty fields into concert venues into experiences. It was more than just. The stage is the creative concept that goes along with. How do you want these people to interact with all aspects of your site like. It's not just who you put on stage it's who your vendors where you want to place your vendors. What are your prices. Who are your marketing part. Your brand part. What our activation. So sean go out the window. Now because twenty twenty hell you know. Twenty twenty one. Okay well all right. So it's april. Nah it may. It's made of twenty twenty. Like how much gray hair are you getting shunned during this period in you know with the roots picnic. How much work we put into that second day like the first day which we booked the shit up part of a strategy for us in a mere has been driving. This year's is how do we get the roots out of the headlining slot. Because if we ever want this to be lollapalooza. We need the roots to ultimately play the role of james addiction. You know perry for me like how do we get the roots out of the so. We finally figured a way to get the roots out of the allies slot while still keeping them in the festival. We were selling tickets like hotcakes on our one day festival and we to read a mirror myself. We spent six months negotiating with michelle obama to come in headline our day to we. Were about to shock the world with that so we finally had deal done putting together. The creatives and kobe hits and is so it wasn't just the roots picnic. I had broccoli. City festival sold out. It was down two months in advance. I had miami jasmine gardens that weekend in march when everything's shutdown headline by mary. J. blige joe scott. Hamilton wilson us to laugh through it. Yeah we were we were. We were better than we were better that essence but again we had to stop so i had a ton of festivals that got shut down and you know shit i was depressed dog like i was fucked up new because i spent. I spent the first four to six weeks. Kobe undoing. My last and month's work it's like building a house and you get to the front door. All you gotta do is took a front door in and a bulldozer comes into knock it down you eighteen months ago shit so it was. It was super super sort of depressing. The i was depressed. I was upset. You know what i mean i was. That was hurt. You know what. I mean with all types of emotions when when when did that change when your spiritual i'll i'll be real when we we dove been with the roots. We dove in on our on our youtube page. Sorta we sorta rolled up our sleeves and and and got creative. Started that for you love. Supreme live love. Dj everything that you know. Tariq's you know. Thought interview are are emerging artists platform. Like like we got the creativity is the thing that that sort of was like. Oh shit okay. This is a time to be depressed. This is the time to roll up our sleeves and become entrepreneurs again. Like i talked to tariq amir jill more during that period because you gotta realize like whoa like a wealth machine with my management client. It was like okay. We got tonight show. I'm gonna say six months ahead of guys. You know what i mean. I got execution team. Keep exceeding ferris mugniyah a team. That handles the day to day. My job is to stay six months ahead so that when we get there is something there so it was sort of like a well oiled machine. What this did for us was forced us to become entrepreneur. Young creative again and this has been fun is a moth me. Real much all right. So what does that feature look like now. And i know people talk about and we get back to normal but like it's still when so all right so when when when the the line finally gets flattened in the united states members were covert free. Am i still going to blah blah blah clubbed. Dj yada yada. Yada you know. What do i do with the thirty thousand. You know audience members that i've gotten only six platforms virtual. Dj like is that a monetary future like. How -solutely i think or do you stay the course that we will never in the live music space in the live entertainment space. We will never return to february of twenty twenty. Okay won't have that won't ever happen again. What does that mean. What that means is like wait a picnic. Look when we last did it for the things fall apart twentieth. What would be different. I mean i think i were picking twenty twenty. Two twenty will return in live will return at scale. I think that part of it is going to be driven by science and governance. You know main mainly song meaning whether it's testing back. Seen what whatever that ends up being you know you can't replicate the emotional connection of being an audience and watching your favorite artists and i think that were returned. But i think the difference. Is you know. Kobe was the symptoms. But what the live music industries actually going through. It's not cohen. It's a technological disruption. We're going through. This is the first flu disruption of technology for live music recorded. Music went through it from lime wire to napster to that ended up. You know that sort of six to eight year process of disruption ended up with spotify apple music title where we are right and if you guys remember that was a really fucking uncomfortable time when that's there was an ally if people like the industry's gone labels never going to happen again. Why are we doing this. This this consumers will never buy anything because they can trade files for free right all of that but what ended up happening was the industry embraced. Technology at the end of in the business is bigger than ever right now. And that's the same thing that's going to happen what we've seeing with these live streaming platforms that we're seeing with the consumer engagement if you think about the level of digital engagement from music consumers when say if i told you you were gonna be sitting on your fucking couch but two hours watch patti labelle gladys knight play music and enjoy it if i would have told you that in february like what nigga my my my moment for that was versus was the primo and and rhythm roses was like yo. The world has changed forever. Act like these age house watching to do what we recommend joining the world right now and enjoying looking. Yes oh so that level of consumer engagement. Which probably would have taken a decade for us to get. There happened in six months. That's going to transition out a cold and you're gonna see cottage industries that become Catis companies that become major companies that are building companies around that digital distribution and digital engaged. That's not going to take live or way it's going to add on to the live economy and you're going to now see a bigger industry. The pie is gonna get bigger because now you have brick and mortar lies remember blockbuster in agent i'll be a tower records have brick and mortar law in san virtual and together. You're going to twenty twenty-five live. Music industry is going to be two three times the size that it is now just like recording music is bigger than it was during during the line where erica year is going to be. It's gonna be a point on your way to two or three years where you won't see big major players like tower. You wanna see big major players that were the shit and twenty one thousand nine hundred and twenty in early twenty twenty and a live music industry. They don't they're going to be gone. So shot is what. Erica did recently kobe. It's at the future. The whole subscription live. Show thing you think the the the beauty about it is out. No the future right. I say it's great seconds That's on part. The fun part is we're in the wild wild west. I've shit erica. Came out and said well. I'm gonna build my own platform. Is that going to be erica. Going to end up being spotify or she going to end up being livewire like like twitch switzer's you know. A huge gaining platform now has a music strategy. Are they going to end up being spot a higher end up being nassar. I don't know but that's the great part in again. Depending on how. I came up in always and i mean i'm not just saying this getting on the phone i say it. In meetings with see ios and presidents our route unanimity came into this game room. And we figured out how to make this shit work. We figured out how to make a twenty plus thirty plus year career off a one and a half it saw when this happened when you know when it's time to roll the biggest out in a period of time where it's discord and everybody's confused. Some people off the wayside. I'll have fun. I'll coming up with ideas creativity. Let's figure this shit amir. Dj you from your barn in new york you know tariq If this is the heart by that is fun. Because i don't you don't know what the future is but you do know it's not going to be where we were at twenty twenty you get to create it. We're essentially like the winner. Might be some kid sitting in. You know his damn rooms homeschooling right now like he might be the next steve jobs of the next. You know what i mean. Be somebody that's ceo president. S going to be some kid sitting there own virtual school right now and it's going to come up with the man that i just hope roots thing so did i. Well wait i forgot. There's one thing that we forgot to mention what you also going to a former ray of developing a two one five entertainment. You know. actually. What what is i find myself trying to step away from platforms and get less and less jobs. But now that. I'm listening to the story. You're actually quest. Low like just between live nation two one five entertainment us developing these these movies. These plays these television shows. At what point are you going to ship gordon. The thing in just be like all right. Alice cooper ride off into the sunset and do have. Do you have a master plan written out in which you just like. All right. i'm cool or you let your son. Takeover or for me is easy on that level yet where it's like which which i on the music site it's s it's showing up to euro like he's he's he's he's this and he's he's Yes he's telling me about. You know this person doing this show and you know how super creative because everybody's bundling with a t shirts but he bundled with this and that you know. Look at the number of streams that he's ease not a not not a proactive thing for me teaching him. He's just i see it. I smell it. Like darren smells sports. Like darren wasn't into music in this my business. He took what he learned for me what he saw his took my hustle and grind and applied it's his passion unanimity. Sean is absolutely built for this music. That i see it. I'm like all do. I will be working for you unanimity. I don't have a. I don't have exit plan meaning exit plan from a. You know. I'm gonna go get my house in hawaii killing like for me. It's about ash. I can use all the things i'm involved in is because i'm passionate about their clients that have fire me. I'm like i said earlier. Because i saw the work most self out of a job their class fire. Give in wake up in an inspired by you or every day isn't going to be inspiration. Some days i wake up and be like amir. Khan dogs right. The first phone call start like wins. The i saw like. When is your phone start ringing. Obviously you have a rule in the house that no more phone calls after blah blah Because i could be imprisoned somewhere. And i knew you ain't going to pick up the phone. That's why that's higher. Mitzi yeah pick it up fifteen and fifty years ago. I was at the phone. I was the one rotten up when somebody got but now part of growth is like all right. Y'all do that. But it's funny. My phone calls i now that i live in la. I usually start my phone calls around seven. But when i'm being creative and my my tease jokes to me. Sometimes that lasts email comes from me three or four in the morning. Like my mind as i've grown in this business. A mind started the worth more like artists unless like the suit like. i know. y'all say like no creativity. Don't start midnight. Let's talk about like got to sleep. But as i've gotten older that's when my creative ideas come because during the day you know i'm phone calls zunes shit like that. So i'm able to think to everybody else is asleep so you can raise exactly me. My day usually starts at seven seven seven thirty calls and you know especially coping. I'm able to work from home. So i you know between calls on my kids you know the balance is good. See i well. I'll be hitting you about adding more acres to my property and you a battle jeff more acres acres are about the son jeff in the second anyone. No i think you i. I had to learn shit. And you know we've been we've been business partners. For what twenty plus years already yet are. We definitely named this episode. The lesson like there's there's some lessons in here absolutely. Yeah all right. Well you know. Sean g thank you be bugging you later tonight will make sure your sent me to edit. Because i ain't signed up. So i can ask about anyway all right so vogel john. I told you this before. I've told both. But i'm it really is inspirational. Just watch and see what jobs bill over these decades man and You know what. I just think you've heard opportunity to bring into this and hit me was just like hey man amir's doing stand in you on in and i was like i want to fuck me. She was going to be but But you know.

We'll definitely appreciated john g stories. I wanna got my own radio. Show back in philly. Like two years have called one ashley g who host finished show. Yes that's how. I got sunday morning soul.

I didn't take it back. I'll do okay good all right. Do short this. This has been the more more informative episode. Already learned from alan weeds. That managers aren't gonna do the tell all. Sit on the fuck korie. So you know and i feel that. This show is effective enough without talking about artists. Fuck ary that is. the point. down is and windsor.

The miami dolphins won a playoff game. He was the coach and we were just talking this weekend. He had a bears team. Oh god i think he four five six years. They had five or six different quarterbacks they beat minnesota and a playoff game really really good minnesota team and he still has a place in chicago. It's the near and dear to his heart national championships with miami and Obviously with jimmy. Johnson won a super bowls in dallas. And he's my friend. He's joining us fox. Sports analyst wants tap from chicago so we were saying this this morning. Aaron rodgers had a birthday and he took a little subtle shout the packers. He said you know people people thought i was done. They drafted a quarterback. I'm not done yet. So i want you to pretend because you. You never got quarterback or you'd still be coaching in the he by saying he's not done yet he just ruined christmas for chicago bears. Because that's the worst thing that could hurt today after that last game but anyway go ahead. You're the coach of the packers. And the gm tells you we're gonna draft a quarterback at utah state knowing you got rolled by san francisco twice and you need help defensively. Would you have gone into the room with the gm and fought like and said no. No no don't take him up. What would you have done if you coach the packers and the gm told you. Hey we're going to draft a quarterback from utah state. Well my reaction five minutes after they made the pick was how i feel right now. You got to be careful that you don't turn this into a new england patriots t and by that. I mean when you look at what. Tom brady had at new england the last couple of years they had. I think they were second in the league. In a most drops by wide receivers. They just didn't have any playmakers big time. And that's the first reaction. I had when they did not take a receiver or defensive player. When they took another quarterback. I and then i thought maybe what happened in free agency you know. Are they going to go out and sign a defensive guy or they going to sign a receiver and it didn't happen then so they obviously have their reasons but boy it just from a distance. It just doesn't seem like it makes sense. 'cause that window is gonna start closing in know. I don't know what it is with aaron rodgers. Two years two years maybe four more years but the window is going to close. You gotta to win your heart. You gotta take you know it so the reality herm edwards me this. And you've told me this if you have a quarterback you don't go into broadcasting you stay in football and i mean that's the reality of it urine chicago and we both like matt nagy but in the end it's a bit of a mass Now they're paying foles a lot and he's a backup. Did just go out. I mean coach diego out because they have a defense. They don't have much of an identity on either side dea. Roll the dice move up in the draft and just admit we whiffed on quarterback and go get another one. What would you fight for if you ran the organization. Well the first thing. If i was running organization before i took another quarterback i would have to be real clear. What do you want to do with the quarterback. What is our offense. What is our identity. Disappointing a game. This is this is not the first year were you know. This is the third year were twelve games into the season. A little bit a run a little bit of play pass. Drop back five out you know. Don't give the offensive line. They help the right now to me. The biggest problem is they really are very unsure of what they wanna do. Offensively and i think the old magnetic he came out last week i played fifty seven yards. They run the ball. Obey the montgomery against the packers at the end of the half. i think he had six runs. He ended up with eleven. Runs the minute that they got behind by ten points in matt's mind and i love matinee but in his mind while we're behind up the running game away and tony dungy set it on air. I was thinking the exact same thing. Don't give up on this running game too so sure enough. They did some guys tell you this. When i was interviewing for a job i was told that bill parcells told me at the combine. Dave you're going to interview a lot of offensive coordinators being head coach. He says and they're all going to tell you. Indiana view that they believe in running the football the important saga running very few. Very few of them rolling. And that's the truth. I mean you can do what you want. But it's not gonna last if it's not in your heart and you really don't get what it does for field position what it does for clock management and what it does for your defense. It's not going to change no. I think it's really. I think it's we just had steve smith senior on. He said all his all. Andy reid guys are trying to out. Clever andy reid. There's one andy. Reid run the football okay. So let's go to. I think brady's actually if you look at the numbers dave actually. Brady's twenty eight picks eleven touchdowns ninety five passer rating sixty five. He's been fine. I mean they didn't have pres he's been fine but it you talk about a guy that forgets about the run. Are you surprised. Is the brady thing worse than you thought. Better than you thought. Where are you right now. Arians brady and where they're at offense. I was looking this up. Looked at something this morning. How about this carson palmer peyton nanny andrew luck and jameis winston. They all in their first year. In this system with bruce they all had career high interceptions and it looks like. It's going to be that way with tom. i'll say it again. Peyton manning andrew luck carson palmer and jameis winston all had career interception. I hear in a system. And then obviously you know adjustments were made and so forth and i just think right now the tom his age i mean he he. This is not his game it new england. I remember watching. I was working for the game. In the super bowl is in arizona. They were playing caroline. Seattle and tom brady threw. I think it was might about a half a dozen balls that were four yard completions and the receiver make some by missing. They'd make seven or eight. That's his style and i think this is just foreign to him and and when he gets pressure you know he's not a young kid anymore that he can move around and throw off his back foot. It's it's they're out of sync right now they truly are out of sync so we know carson wentz's talented big strong good arm. We've seen we saw him last year by the he had a much better year last year than people think he had twenty thousand seven picks won the division and he had all sorts of chaos at receiver offensive line. So we know he's talented. Something's wrong and it's interesting join. I've been talking about this. So he has the nick foles statue outside the building and then they draft jalen hurts and i know i know. I know you're supposed to be able to handle that. But what bothers me about. The jalen hurts thing if you go look at. What buffalo is done with josh allen. They've rebuilt the line. Eddie cole beasley got him. John brown got him stefan. Degs they draft running back. All they've done is support support support support support. Is it fair to at least criticize the eagles front office and say you need to be a little more sensitive with carson wentz. He's dealing with a nick. Foles backup complex. Jalen hurts in the second round every every week. There's a question about him or should we just say carson wentz toughened up and deal with it. Yeah and. I don't think there's anybody in the country that doesn't respect and love jalen hurts. You know i mean the way. He handled that alabama benching and he goes to oklahoma first class. You want him in your business. Whatever he does he's gonna make your company better but you really draft him and think that he's going to be an nfl quarterback at the next level. You know. I would go back to that. I mean it's bad enough taking quarterback. But i think you'd take a quarterback truly was not known for throwing a football. You know so. It's almost double whammy in my mind and and and carson wentz. I just think that they expect. They gave him the big money. Honored twenty eight million. And i just think they they. They think that he's better than he really is. And you know. He's he used to make play with. He's having a tough time doing that. Now he's making bad decisions. Which tells you he has no confidence. He's present and then you combine that with the injury so y they would take a receiver. Nothing against jalen hurts. Like i say i love the guy but boy you take him in the second run you taking him. You're thinking he's going to be your future wife. Y'all you better go. Offense quarterback read offense because it's gonna be different than what they're doing now. Promise it up debut on stat joining us bears and dolphins head coach. I want to talk about miami. So miami has houston's first pick and they're gonna have once again and you know we talk about this. Is that dave. Sometimes the culture changes in all businesses tack football everything. And now we're seeing these college kids. Come into the nfl hell. They're good now. Most of them are making it. Most of them are really good quickly so to get hurt again and we think boy all right now to is hurt what to you. Put him back in any just. He's okay but he gets dinged up again he gets. Would it be crazy to just go out and get another quarterback. Is it nuts. I mean how long. I know it sounds nuts but we know floors is going to have a good defense. So that part. I don't worry about the only thing holding this franchise back. Dave is the quarterback and we know what's fitzpatrick long term. So it's gotta be to. What are you going to be. What if you if you ran the organization today. What are you gotta see from two so that you don't go get noor quarterback you bring up the injury thing. That's interesting column. Because that was the one thing i was talking to some general manager nap before the draft and they went back to his high school days and he got hurt in high school. You know so. He's had a history obviously of injuries. That was the only negative thing that some people had. You would hope that it's it's nothing long term you know we don't know what's going on inside that locker room. They just got to be care for this. And and i lived at miami. And i had jay fiedler and i'm not saying that he's too. I mean although jay feeler we won ten games a year for four years with jay fiedler and but it was never going to be good enough in miami because of dan marino. Everything is compared to dan marino. It may never be another dan marino. Show at some point at some point. You know if there is not a problem with two and they don't think it's long term kids only played a few games in the nfl. I think you've gotta roll up your sleeves and commit and chan gailey best it. There is their offense coordinator quarterback coach. He's doing a fantastic job between fits. And to a miami's top city with quarterbacks. I lived it we were under said. We're winning ten games a year. And all they wanted to do was get rid of jay fiedler and so you gotta be careful. Would how much of an opportunity. Josh rosen gets got talent you know he he. Maybe he'll never play in the league. Maybe put that aside. He was a high draft pick. They gave up a second round pick for him and right away. He played one or two games. Wasn't good enough. Somebody else in there. At that position you can race the whole career. A of guys can lose jobs by by rohan and quarterbacks if you have a good one that you just need to spend time with and need to develop. I think that's the case with too. I really do by the way i said. What the seahawks this week. I really impressed me. Dave is that green bay struggled stopping the run and they have done nothing in the season with talent to change it. Chicago's offense needs juice ryan pace. They've never gone out and acquired anybody. Seattle had a pass rush issue. They went and got carlos dunlap keep pete carroll developed eljay. Call your good young player. Before the season they knew that a pass russia shoot. They got jamal adams. Who's really linebacker. Blitzes seattle something. Dave that is it's hard to do. You have a real weakness and you solve it in the season seattle. Now's got a top five pass rushing in the league your thoughts about seattle football team. You go back to your career. Did you ever solve a major problem. In the middle of a season in the middle of the season. I would say no but i will tell you this our fourth year. We finish training camp. I mean we're ready to preseason over and we are ready to start off. We're gonna open up on sunday night. Football against the washington redskins who i hear it in super. I think the year before that or two years or twitter. Great greg football team. Joe gears and we went out. Where were you. Where were you coach. I'm dallas kabul. Okay and we finish. We're getting ready to start the season we're going with the redskins and myself. Norv turner and jimmy. Johnson went to a mexican restaurant and we were sitting there and we were going around like what do we need. What do we need. And it was a pass rusher. We had tony tober. Jim jeffcoat and we had some great guys. It really tried hard. And we're good players but they weren't difference makers and within three days. Jimmy johnson made the trade for charles haley. We've got charles on a tuesday. We got him ready. I think he played about eight or nine plays for us in third down situations. He played that week he showed tuesday. He played at sunday against the redskins. And we want a super bowl that year. Sometimes you gotta do that. You see a weakness. You've got to solve it. You don't have time. Dave juan stat barriers dolphins hurricanes cowboys great senior coach. Okay yeah no. I mean a little mexican restaurant second margarita. Talk to yourself into charles haley. They weren't gonna get gels after the first margarita but boy. Those second margaritas usually how it goes with margaritas. Keila makes us citizens are starting to be made. Don't they say two kilos. The aggressive alcohol tequila is one of those hits. Everyone a little differently like some people just cannot and should not drink tequila. I'm not one of those people. I enjoyed tequila. But it will make you go out and get a pass. Rusher been confirmed. They can margarita. Do things if you have the world shaped by the voices. We choose to listen to the leaders.

Hey they're stuck living with you right joy with the news the news. This is the heard. I knew i. It's just you know one night. Take the edge off. Just one donning bunch. That's fine for me. I didn't but tonight. I'm a nfl game this afternoon. We'll have one during the game. Which is not going to include ravens running back mark ingram or jk dobbins. They're both eligible to return to play against the steelers but neither going to play. They were not activated for the game today. The team is from poorly being very cautious with them because they missed practice. While on the covid list so gus edwards is still in line to be the starting running back today. The also have justice hill and tyson williams remote from the practice squad. Gus edwards is at eighty five carries for three hundred seventy six yards and three touchdowns. This season Steelers a favourite according to fox bet by eleven. I would stay away from that. You know it sounds. No obviously standard is gonna win. Just that rivalry has a weird way of it. Does lamar was playing than i. I would take him in a second just that game even covert guys out. i take. Yeah but it's just not it's this guy moves and all the stuff started building it lost. Its its steelers ravens luster certainly from you know thursday but It's still interesting like i'm going to go home to watch isn't about game. So the broncos were ronco were forced to play practice squad wide receiver at quarterback last weekend due to the cove situation did not go well for them. Loss to the saints. Thirty one three but jerry jones thinks that the cowboys were in a similar position when they had to start their third string. Rookie quarterback ben to nucci and the nfl. You take risk. You take risks. When you put all the quarterbacks in the time room if you will award about those things you can spread them atletico bit you can save one. I don't know that denver had anymore the challenge. And we've had not are with their young quarterbacks that we've had jesse didn't play receiver. He's a receiver. bendon achieve. did play against philli. Twenty one forty. One hundred eighty yards zero touchdowns and zero interceptions. But he did appear in two other games. This season so He is actually quarterback at quarterback. You gotta basically. I guess if you're running. Nfl team one quarterback you just put zoom meetings mostly right down the hallway have to jerry's point like that's a. I think a lot of teams talked this having just a quarterback that's not it's separate for this reason at that position. It's it's not an unreasonable thing to do is then you have kendall hidden. Who's ever been practiced at quarterback now your starter which is an impossible situation. Put someone and just because you played in college completely you practice at that position. That's not what third quarterback which is what jerry. He's talking about the new. She is still a backup quarterback. It's obviously not an ideal situation but not the same. So patrick mahomes may be one of the best players in the nfl right now this to be interesting to you as you ask a lot of people what they thought of star players the first time that they saw them in practice a lot tyreek hill was not impressed with mahomes when i saw him in practice with the cheesy said i thought he was trash when he first got here. I was like this. Y'all drafted right here. That second year quarterback mechanics were different. It was like he was spending more time with his quarterback coach. Spending more time with coach re learning. The offense dude was different. So by the way we've said as great as mahomes is you. Stick him in jacksonville. He's not making the playoffs and he just this really talented kid down in jacksonville. So like this is a prime example. Is how wrong he was and by the way this was understood when he got drafted. It was like yeah. He's super raw gra gunslinger. And then he gets a really good coach and now net now actually. He's very low interception guy. He's very much like aaron rodgers. He doesn't throw picks. This is why. I don't like him getting compared to other people as far as draft. I didn't like the jordan. Love comparison like patrick mahomes went very specific situation right. Where alex smith was there but they weren't committed to him long-term and that was very clear situation. Also alex smith is type of guy. That's going to bring him under your wing. You're not gonna get that with aaron rodgers. Well he's not in the same way that you would with alex smith. Not saying aaron rodgers isn't helping him but not the same. This very unique situation situation doesn't take away anything from what patrick mahomes is. But you're absolutely right where you go matters a lot and if you are able to overcome a situation when you go there that's a that's a credit to you but it's i mean the to what you're saying. There's a lot of situations where guys have lost jobs that they probably just needed more development in a little more time but this is a competitive this competitive space like you. You may not get that. But i thought that was a little note. I recall was joy. The news well. That's the news. Thanks for stopping by lie.

Thirty thirty michelin endurance. Xt silicone wiper. Blades weather proven extreme weather proven. Get them at walmart last two times longer than all other. Blades michelin alright. Five weeks left in the regular season. Kate we do. There's about once every couple of months we see. It's a game called would you. There's multiple options on something in. What do i think is more interesting. Creates better content is better for football is better for my eyes. Would you rather joy. Would you rather the giants win the nfc east or the eagles when the nfc's interestingly. I'd rather see the eagles when it don't think they will because then all the carson wentz haters have to go okay so he has won the division back to back years with major chaos on the offensive line at wide receiver. I think the giants are going to win it. But if you're asking me what creates better drama. It's wentz winning it again. And as you all have bailed on the jets finished with them number one pick or the. Jags finished with the number one. Pick the jags finished with the number one. Pick because trevor lawrence is going to work everywhere but it dan. It creates real interesting situation. Would the jets move off. Sam darnold for justin fields now for trevor lawrence. You absolutely do but remember. They've got all these picks because of the jamal adams. And they're gonna they're gonna they got seven. Great picks. Keep darnold seven picks. I'm not so sure. They move off him so i think i think that creates a fascinating sports argument that the it's it's sam darnold and a bunch of picks or justin field. I'm not so sure you keep donald there. The raiders make the playoffs or the browns. Make the playoffs. Would you rather. I would rather have the raiders. Make the playoffs for two reasons. I think gruden is great in the playoffs. Three reasons i think. The raiders have a more interesting brand and derek carr is better in every statistical category this year than baker mayfield. So i get better quarterback play bigger star as a coach. And i and i think we you and i have agreed with this. The raiders are a great brand. They're kind of the rebels. The outlaws of the nfl absolutely so dolphins make the playoffs with fitzpatrick or. They missed the playoffs with two. I'd rather they make the playoffs with fitzpatrick whose averaging over one hundred yards more passing game. Because i think. Brian floors deserves the make the playoffs. They feel like a playoff team to great brand great coaching job. I like to see people rewarded who've done a good job just because to a dozen make. The playoffs doesn't mean they bail on him. But i think brian flora's needs to be rewarded. Because i think he's just out coached and outsmarted a lot of nfl p too good culture builder. Jimmy the forty niners or would you rather jimmy. D goes back to the patriots. I would rather jimmy g go to the patriots First of all he'll win both places. Okay he'll wind ballot check. But i do believe. The strength of new england's dynasty beyond belichick and brady was their offensive line play and they've drafted a couple of really good young offensive linemen. I don't think garoppolo. I think it's a very good place for a quarterback with injuries to be. I think new england would be a nice place for him to be. They wouldn't put him in harm's way. I mean braided get hit much and i think the offensive line is the one thing bella check. Offensively has drafted well and develop really wells and organization and in san francisco. Kyle shanahan is going to get somebody. And i think frankly i think bella check wants garoppolo more than shanahan. Does it this point. I didn't kyle wants somebody else. The cavaliers stick with deck or the cowboys draft quarterback. Well i worked for fox and we have the cowboys as our premiere ratings product. I think it's better if you draft a quarterback first of all. It's a new story. Second of all i've seen six hundred twelve the last three years ago winning teams. And because you gotta pay him. They're up against the cap we know in the nfl. What wins is young quarterbacks. Not paying him. You can go in free agency. Doc will get a job to. Don't don't kid yourself jack. We'll start somewhere. That's not and i know this is not gonna happen. But if if you want to be. I don't think dax fascinating. I think a new quarterback situation would be fascinating and allow dallas to nibble at some free agents possible because they'd have some salaries face. Would you rather the seahawks win the nfc west or the rams when the nfc. Wes seahawks Because i think they can win the super bowl. I don't think the rams quite look like that team yet. I think russell wilson's more entertaining. Decay metcalf in russell. Wilson are so much. Fun to watch selfishly. This seattle has a vibe to it. Like seattle games are is kevin. Clark says that works for the ringer. There's never been a seahawks game. That's not weird. They plan more than never played in a normal game. They've never played a normal football game all their games or crazy and i just think whereas the rams win kind of boringly the ravens missed the playoffs or the ravens lose first playoff game either way. Lamar is going to get criticized like we got this narrative going on. I'd rather he missed the playoffs. Come in if he loses another playoff game. We're we're going to have for third year in a row now. You have a narrative. I don't wish for any young player to get stuck in a narrative but if he doesn't make the playoffs and by the way cleveland pretty good and the steelers are great. You can just say listen. It's it's very competitive year. I'd hate to see him losing their playoff game and now we have a narrative. He can't win a playoff game. And i think that's a rough on young age for the record. India still like twenty three years old or twenty four years old. He's very young. And yeah i'm with you. I think it would be better for them term if they just missed the playoffs this year. It's a weird year better draft More games Good stuff by the way m drive start. It's one scoop every morning. Chocolate mousse proteins digestive enzymes. Lean up makes you feel great. We're all getting old. Don't let it defined you m drive. Start dot com. Happy birthday to aaron rodgers. Yes happy birthday. He is thirty seven years old today. Looks great looks fantastic. Having a great year. I'd vote him. Mvp so you know. It's interesting not the age quickly but he didn't play for like three years and then his first year he started there. Were like six ten. He got the thirty-seven fast. It feels that like oh god. He's already he's already thirty seven years. Brady's brady's for brady and him are only separated by six. Years feels weird.

E193 For Me, For You, For Us

"I'm Ryan idell who's to fifteen minutes to freedom. Your daily action guide to getting shit done. Today's episode entitled for me for you for us. So sit back, relax. Enjoy the content. In today's up. So I'm gonna share with you the impact of having an open mind new perspectives. And how much power can come out of that? If you're willing to listen. Sorta recent interview. I had the chance to speak with someone that I've met on a respect for his name's Ed, and I don't wanna ruin it. Because then I had an hour and fifteen minutes of phenomenal conversation around anything and everything that is say the psychiatric field and the importance of mental health and ownership of your mental health in an effort to progress your life back and forth and covered on the topics that I share on the show and how that relates to the psychiatric field. It was one of the cool things that I've experienced because it validates I mean, I think if we're honest with ourselves release him, honest with you we all seek some sort of validation, or is certainly seek validation from the marketplace. And this goes back to conversations I've had about social media and looking for likes on posts and comments and loving to get feedback from you as far as whether it's emails to Ryan GST media group dot com or direct messages to to Ryan idell on Instagram. There's just some power in that there's power in that because it makes me feel like the path that I'm walking on is the right path to connect with you. And in that I've shared on a multitude of different podcasts that even if you didn't respond if you didn't care that I would keep beating my drum. I would keep sharing my life's lessons and so four that I've said a multitude of times that this podcast is solely for me. I've one is far as to say this podcast is so much for me that if you don't like it, I appreciate it. But then that you should leave. And I said that from a place of personal ownership. From a place of that was the moment in time. How I was feeling see on the show I sit here, and you know, there's no notes there's nothing in my hand. There's no teleprompter. Running in the background most time. It's just I sit down. I asked one of the guys. Hey, come in and record this, and we just go, and so there's blessings and curses of that as I've said that authentic vulnerability that. Invert mistakes that come up that aren't really quote unquote, mistakes to me they're showing the evolution of the process that I'm going through. And in saying that getting to this moment has been a process you see here, we are somewhere between one hundred eighty and two hundred episodes, depending on this one launches and I have a chance to meet this man from California Edward Ed for short. And I met Ed because he emailed in. He took me up on the fact of hearing that I love connecting with you. He felt compelled Email in and then was a little surprised that I emailed back. I've also shared a multiple pool different different shows. I maximize my time the best I can. But as the brand is growing as my time is becoming more valuable and more things are pulling more directions that it's difficult for me to really catch up with everybody to make sure that respond everybody to give you time on the phone. Sometimes I fall short and so's Ed Email back and forth. He was pleasantly surprised that I emailed him. And then we were able to hop on a phone call in the nine vitamin on the show. See I didn't have an agenda when he retired meal than to say. Thank you. And so in that at night, conclude our interview. And you guy you will eventually here that the interview stops. Of course, I wrap everything up with if you follow the the rules and things that someone shared you'll be able to get shit done. But then little behind the scenes information for you. There's always this little part of the podcast that you don't get privy to see when I end an episode. I push the Mike away. And it's I'm left with the guest to face via zoom. And then that I've noticed there's this moment of. Clarity for most guests. And that cleared in the way, you might expect and see maybe you've personally experience this yourself. My guests get to a point where we've traveled through their story through their evolution where they've now spent either forty five minutes, our to our some block of time with me just having an open conversation. And in that amount of time. What I found is whether it's a podcast guest. Whether it's a potential client, whether it's someone I'm working with or complete stranger when we spend that much time. Focused and being present in the moment, locking is. And having a meaningful conversation that people feel able to say things that they might not typically say. And that's what ended after our show. Ed said to me rhyme. Would you mind if I share something that bothers me with you? And here I'm looking this this like Haya trysts man that, you know, analyzes people for a living. I'm like, where's this going? No idea. What's coming? So. Sure. Ed, I would love to hear it. I'd be honored. And he shares with me that it bothers him that I say that this podcast is just for me. And that if you don't like it, you can leave. And it hits me. I don't have a defense mechanism at triggers in that moment, I'm curious. I want more information from of why he feels that way. And I can see through our zoom conference call I can see him not treading lightly, but he's waiting to gauge my response. Well, if you're listening for the first time, I don't really have a long fuse. I'm the current season on my life is one of great inquisition. I'm incredibly curious about everything. I don't feel like I have everything figured out in life. I just know what I've done to get me from where I was to wear them today. And I have a plan to get me to where I want to go. And so in that he continues to tell me or share with me that that bothers him. Because if in fact, we are all truly connected in some capacity. And if in fact, as you're listening, you're getting something out of this. The miss podcast. No longer becomes just for me. And I should be present of mind and aware of the fact it is also for you. And depending on the season of your life or how long you been consuming the content for. Or maybe just which side of the bed. You woke up on. Today's message may not be for you in the moment. He proceeds to push me to consider the opportunity or the possibility that as I share with you as you're listening that if you're not getting value should step away for a while. That I should also say that's because I want you to come back venture with a new perspective. And potentially be able to hear and receive a new message. Because admittedly, I've had those moments of trepidation of not understanding if I'm going to be able to really get through the fourteen hundred and sixty episodes, can I really share an impactful lesson every day for four years. And challenges me said, look if you're present, and you're grateful and your as he would call it. You'll hear in the episode. If you're hitting your three pointer every day, there is always a lesson to share and sometime those lessons may become a little redundant. But you could go months without the same lesson being taught. And in that as your lessons are coming to you as your life is evolving, you're going to see new perspective in new moments to share with us as what he's saying. To me us being the listeners. And a jars me for a moment. Man. That's a great perspective. It jars me doesn't upset me. Because I hadn't looked at it through that lens before see the frame, I was carrying around up until this moment was much more of I still have stuff to get off my chest. And I wanna just share my message. And if you like it you like it if you don't you don't. And if you don't that's okay, you just don't have to listen. But I'm realizing from speaking him if you don't like what I have to say. I hope you come back and listen to it again. And not tomorrow or the next day. But when it feels right? Because at this moment. There's no there's no back end of this. Sure the day will come where I'm able to advertise the show or decide to the day will come where I have strategic partnerships. The day will come where there's a good or product or service that I feel comfortable enough to share on air because I find value in it. Whether I received compensation for it or not. But up until this point been a labour love, and I believe it to continue to be that way. Magic day that I keep seeing my mind when I meditate and it's right around episode four hundred. I don't know why four hundred I I don't know the significance of this point just at something changes around episode four hundred whether it's additional global notoriety. Whether it's an advertiser that comes on board that meets my. Criteria. Something I believe in. To something's different at four hundred such a bout a year in a month into this process. A little bit more. Sometime around may of next year. Which own right is somewhat mind boggling that I'm already thinking about may. I'm already thinking about seven months ahead of right now at this moment. But that's just the way it is. And in this as as I'm speaking to add and I share with him. I just stop. I said, you're right. I'm honored to have received that message from you. It's causing me to view what I do differently. And at goes on to pay me an additional complement which I am humbled by but I'm honored to hear. And it makes me excited for the impact. I've had at least on his life or how my delivery has increased. He says multiple times whether it's on air or offer in this interview that Hugh laughingly used me as the next Oprah. Now, of course, there's a few differences between open I not only maybe in gender, but in age, I guess we get specific we could say skin tone. But he continues to push me and say look Ryan, the people that might have watched Oprah on daytime television in the early nineties. They might have left her path. They might have consumed that content and got tired of a board of it. Frustrated their life could have changed something altered their perception of their reality in that moment. But now, they still like Oprah. They would consume more of Oprah's content. If it came across their plate. And that if I have the aspiration which I do. To truly impact one hundred twenty million people's lives. The not only does it take consistency. But it takes a little bit more of an open mind than I would have had. An open mind from the standpoint of not telling you to piss off. Yes, you as you're listening. Not telling you that. If you don't like what I say to leave. By reframing it and the fact of I get it. You get tired of my voice, or my inflection or my speech patterns, or maybe even my lessons. But I truly do want you to come along for this journey for the next four five six years of my life. Because the man that's recording. This episode will be different six months from now two years from now. Four years from now. But different in a way that has also achievable by you. Choice to remain stagnant. And accept what you have the same way to choice to aspire and work towards more. And whether you're aware of the choice are unaware of the choice. There is still a choice. As would call that cognitive distortion exist. Cognitive distortion central being defined by the fact, that your view of what goes on in the world is dictated by what you have experienced. So far. And so all this stuff ties together in this unique little package that. Shows the change in my mindset. And the fact that I'm blessed to get to receive such powerful insight from someone that listens to the show not different than yourself. Sure edit spent years and years studying and perfecting the craft of psychiatric care. So we spent time energy effort and money to learn a skill that, I don't currently have the same capacity. But the value that Ed added to my life now is no different than the value that you could add to my life. Cr relationship is not mutually exclusive. And perhaps butchered that, but what I mean by it is the fact that you may think in this moment that I'm sharing this message. Just four year receiving you're coming along in this journey. You're getting something out of it. But I also get something back. When you take that extra three five ten minutes out of your day to track me down somewhere and say Hello. Tell me that you receive something of value from me. And then offer me something else. Whether it's subject matter to cover different perspective, some gratitude. Those messages consistently create a shift in my perception of my reality. And so in that this podcast is no longer from the viewpoint of just being for me. I realized that my words are also threw me for you. And by the nature of that over a long enough run rate of time together, it ends up being our podcast. It's for us. Because if you don't share with me, and then share with others of this podcast exists that you've gotten something from it. The listenership doesn't really ever grow. And listenership doesn't grow the more. People don't hear it. And if more people don't hear it, I don't get closer to my hundred twenty million person impact goal. And so it's our podcast. Sure, I might be the one in the microphone in the studio and looking at the camera right now. But it's the old. Story of if a tree falls in the woods. And no one's there to hear it or see it. Did it really fall? If I record endless amounts of podcast, but nobody consumes the content. Nobody listens. Nobody shares. It does it even matter that I did it. It does for me. But I'm only one piece of the equation. See I've found more and more that as I share what really goes on in life. Not just the highlight reel that we wanna share. But some of the uncomfortable things less joyous things. The Mabel connect on a much deeper level with you. Because it may seem from time to time that I have this all figured out. That I went from this pit of despair to a path of possibility and prosperity. And while that is true in its own, right? I'm nowhere near where I want to arrive to. You may be yourself. You may be have arrived at exactly where you want to be. But as I've shared before and I'll share again consistently. I believe it's our goal. Our mission our divine right here on this planet to seek expansion. To expand our possibility to be more than we are today. And if every day is really a series of right now is a series of moments that we are experiencing stacked on top of each other. Once I started to view life that way, I realized I was never going to arrive to some place where I felt content. Because if I made for expansion, and I'm consistently seeking expansion than every next moment where I learned something new I'm still seeking the next level of knowledge or the next experience or the next connection. Then through that this process of progress is never ending. Which is not only terrifying. But also exciting. There's always something else out there. And in that, it means something else out there for us. Always. So I appreciate you being on this journey with me. I appreciate the support that you may have lent. I appreciate the review you may have left. I appreciate the direct message or the Facebook comment or the sharing your insta- story or any way that you've gotten this out there. I sincerely appreciate it. Because at validates. Me in my mind. And it helps push us to a new place together. Because as the content gets shared and more messages come back to me, just like with Ed. It forces me to look at something greater. And what I found is in my life, just like yours. When you look for something greater inside of your business. When you look for something greater inside of your body. When you look for something greater inside of a relationship. And you consistently strive to achieve more in each one of those three areas. You are truly every day able to get shit done.

It's been a while. But while you're working working as i mentioned in helping help in the startup community that craig is built is something that that we that we somber to be. We do as regular basis. It's how we is how we helped launch printers and how we how we help people learn how data create for themselves really wanna boils down to and had someone reach out to me from one of the ryerson zones Saying that you come in and help mentor them. And it was great that we are having you online so appreciate all that help you do there. Yeah well listen at this point right now. People need all the help thinking get because specifically now with with what's happening the covid all these people who are now out of work or thinking about how they're gonna figure out with their next steps are in turn to start you know whatever they had as a hobby all of a sudden now turns into a business for them and they can now start to make money of the same right and so having knowledge to be able to understand how your marketplace plays into what your pricing strategy higher revenue models going to go look is always good information so what is the pricing strategy. The added core prices Essentially is just. What is what you're gonna price your products for the trick. Dough is to is figuring out you know what is your market. Look like what does your competitors. What are your painters are doing. And also your customers are are looking for from you because the customer the are going to be was driving your your your pricing strategy at the end of the day because really no matter what prices started you put. If they're buying you're going nowhere might so you always want to keep that in mind that the customers really Other kind of the the key to all of this so when you're trying to develop a pricing strategy for your business the three things you want. There's three things that you really wanna look at first off. I want to determine your business goals and by figuring out what is the goal of your product or service if your product or service is something new that people have never seen before then perhaps maybe looked some looking at something. Launching a new product into the marketplace is that is. That's what your pricing strategy is going to be based on that trying to get as much market share as possible in the beginning. You may wanna look at something like pricing lower than your competitors or now looking something that's going to be more value base is going to show how you your products better than competitors and. That's why people should buy from you but if your goal is to is launching products into the marketplace and get as much penetration as possible. This is what you need to figure out. I a lot of times. People who haven't existing product are just looking to gain increased some some market share. There's a couple of different prices traditions. That are available for that. As well and craig's education combine several different prices strategies. To go for. I mean right now. There's it depends on he alaska's if you ask different people you can get different answers but there's probably about fifteen or twenty different individual pricing strategies that you could actually work with and i'm going to cover a few of them here have time to cover. All of you heard me say that earlier because there is there is a lot but i am going to cover some of the most common ones in some others that you look at it as well. The other thing that goal for your business is to increase your profitability because really thinking about but the sales and pricing in general the Price is going to using drive sales right. So if you're driving sales to to to your business. How much profit are you're actually making me look at your costs versus your versus your markup versus your selling price. Those are all things that you're that you're going to have to decide what what it is. You wanna you want to factor in as far as making the correct setting the correct price for your product or service. The other thing you wanna do. Is you want to start taking a really good look at the market and what's actually happening it Because if you're if you miss the mark with your price you're not gonna you're not gonna get any sales that this is that it's really that simple the the idea behind looking at the marketplaces understanding what people are actually paying for that similar type of product or service. If something new that nobody's ever seen before you may have a little bit of a leeway in charging in in being in charge at a price that is maybe perhaps premium or higher than what other people will do but for the most part if you're gonna be like any if you're gonna product you've got competitors because most people do have competitors around civic product. You're selling you have to understand that. What the market is willing to pay for that type of service. You can't go too much further out of that because if you if you do you're not going to get any says no one's going to buy yourself in looking at what your competitors are doing especially. If they've been around for a long time. They may have a better understanding of what the marketplace looks like so taking a close look at what they're doing is is that very good business practice just in general anyway to understand how you're gonna make your business better and in the last one. I want to kind of touch on two things that you want to really be taking a close look at. We're talking oppression. Strategies is your target audience. Because if you know the buying habits are of your target audience you'll be better able to understand what they're willing to pay for the type of product to serve since you're selling right if they if they expect your product to be in a high premium pricing zone than you not go ahead. Put your pricing into the higher premiums. Oh maybe even a little lower to see if he can steal some market share but if they expect you to be value or economy type brand trying to trying to put a premium price on that and they see you as a value brand. Those two will never meet so you need to be. You need to be very cognizant of how your product is viewed by the target on customers that you're trying to attract so there's really three common pricing strategies when you're talking bed. Most businesses followed these one or variations of all of these three but they really kind of focused around. These three am issues. So you've got your customer value based pricing. you've got cost based pricing in competition based pricing. I'm gonna talk a little bit about each those as we as we go through this so the first one list customer value based pricing so really was talking about earlier understanding the value that your customers put on your product is going to help you determine what your price should be. And so if that's if that debt balances is skewed. You're not gonna make any sales so you need to obviously figure out how to even out that bounce or increase the value balance based on the price because if the prices low which you've got a high value you have a better chance of making more sales as long as you product solves. The problem with these people are looking for. It's really what it boils down to right craig. Mike going to quickly here. No i think you're going well. I'm just looking at the questions which aren't relevant just yet. So keep going back so cost based pricing. This is the one that pretty much. Everybody probably knows where you know. Your your product costs is if you're selling heart cost product For whatever reason and it costs twenty five dollars to produce in you sell it for fifty dollars. You have a twenty five dollars markup. That's your prophet. Your fifty dollars However many widgets you sell it that twenty five dollar markup is going to is going to help hopefully give you some revenue that's going to be able to sustain your business that's how you kind of role That's typically how when it comes a product based things most product-based prices strategies work obviously need to cover your costs. Because you can't sell anything for less than what it cost for you to make earls you might as well not be in business. There's this really is no point in doing it. That said you may wanna do that. For a short period of time if you're able to sustain those types of losses based on trying to get into the market if it's really tough to break into and you know an example that would be is. If you're trying to go into this. This happens actually a lot with With a consumer electronics goods right. So if you're talking about you know a high end high in foam at safe for example at pretty much has Apple samsung cornered the market. On these. so if you're a new brand in your coming into this marketplace had you break into that you may have to start to sell a little. Your friday pressure product way less than what those are but also increased the the perception of value to ensure that people will see the better price. But you may be losing a little bit on that because of the fact that your cost is going to be a little higher than what you're selling it for right so you have to weigh that in figure that's going to be worthy for your particular business. If those goals are aligned with with the market penetration idea that you that you're trying to get into and gaining your market share but at the end of the day the the rule for that is always make sure you're making money because that's really the whole goal of one. His were all trying to do. We're all trying to make some money. We all need to be able to to have our businesses thrive and businesses thrive on revenue. There's no way around that that this that's just that's businesses but based on this you know keep in mind. There's nothing wrong with buying a customer Yeah i i mean it really depends on. On on your your. I guess product in the company in and who you're buying would it is. You're trying to do because you can entice customers come your way just with discounts and sales or if you're trying to compete head to head with a customer on price you may need to now start looking at some of the other things. Your product brings to the table. But yeah totally could by customers if you had to and when i say by customers that any one of the you know you're actually losing money on the sale of a product. You're doing a freemium model. You're actually you know because you're you're doing marketing anyway. So when i look at cost markup you trying to break into a modern you think gillette or something where i'm going to give The handle away for free or next to nothing. But i'm gonna make the money on the blades. So that's what i mean by you. Know depending on what you're doing some of the pricing strategies that would probably gonna talk about you know your first product doesn't have to be super profitable if you have a plan to get to profitability and if you also have multiple products of choose from i mean there there's some Such things as called loss leaders so they have a product that is intentionally low priced in order to get you in the door. And then once you're in the door they try to sell you other things right and you'll see that mostly mostly in grocery stores or any type of soares have the sales on that they're using that sale as as a loss leader saying kay we book discount this price to very much probably near our cost of not lower in order to get you in the door. Now that you're in the door where the other regular priced merchandise which may have a higher margin for us. But you know what you're here now you're gonna up now. Debt changes slightly with talking e commerce versus a physical store but the concept is still the same grand. We have here. Are you locked into you yet. Wrong thing and the other the other thing you want to look at From the kind of the three major ones is competitor based pricey this when you see mostly lot in in places like grocery stores or shopping malls. You'll find that a lot of a lot of stores that have similar products are gonna have similar pricing. Why because they figured the price of the customers are willing to pay for. This is kind of set at a specific level so now really other news now trying to compete on service now the one good thing about competitor pricing is if you're trying to steal market still still market share from them. You certainly can price your stuff a little bit lower than them and hope and pray that the price conscious customers are going to come towards the one problem with that. Is that if people are willing to jump to you just because of your price. Don't be surprised if they jumped to somebody else because of their price. And that's something that a lot of people sent team seem to forget when it comes to pricing because if you price the same or lower than your competitors. They may decide that they wanna price lower than To steal back that business and then next thing you know you're in what's called a price war and nobody wins in that scenario because at that point it is literally a race to the bottom and nobody wins in price worth. So you don't want to put yourself in a position where you're where you're you're in entice your customers to try to though be lower than you. I mean the best example is. I don't know if you've ever if you guys have ever seen to gas stations across the street from each other it's ridiculous. How how they manage their pricing. 'cause you know one would change it to two dollars Changes it's ninety nine nine nine in the next thing you know. Someone changes to ninety seven nine. It's great for the customers customers win. But you just run roughshod all over your margins at that point. Click here so some of the other strategies that you can consider. We talked about it before that you know there could be as many as fifteen to twenty to choose from. But i'm not going to go through all of them today simply because we do not have time for all of that but couple of other you can consider you can look at what's called price skimming so i don't know if you guys are familiar with with high television so if you were if you were to go to the consumer electronic show and by one wanna by eight k tv while an eight k tv it probably costs you ten thousand. Why because it still new. It's it did not have the economies of scale yet for production but also because none of the other competitors of she tried to produce one so that will drive the prices down later right so if you look at what the initial price of that television. Isn't it beginning and then watch it like four five six years later. The price will completely completely cut in way less than we lesson. Two-thirds right and that's kinda how price getting worse as a strategy people understand that that's going to happen so as early adopter they pay the full frame for it. You know they're gonna. There is spend a lot of money on that analogy. Letellier me on the other hand. I'm one of those what they call a laggard. So i'll wait until the tv's one hundred dollars then go buy it. 'cause i mean really the end of the day out anita nate k-tvhe does anybody really needed eight k tv Proud but they're they're they're making them and they've actually been. Tv's now that are so thin that you can talk about The the curve now and everything else who needs that but you know people are willing to pay the price for it up front and you know. So it's it's it is a strategy that might manufacturers used in order to to To manage their their cost up front because the cost of front really high end can just that over the course of however many years until the end of that particular products life cycle the other thing that This this one's always been kind of weird to me. I don't understand how it works. But i mean the psychology of people's minds is is really kind of interesting for whatever reason people seem to think that if you end a price with nine versus zero it seems to be psychologically a better price so case in point four ninety nine versus five hundred dollars for whatever reason someone says. I guess sunday for under five hundred dollars at four ninety nine but they're actually paying for ninety nine so i was just really close to five hundred dollars so i'm not sure how that makes you feel better that you didn't spend five hundred dollars. That part never really compute with me but for the. There's a reason why anytime you go into in the retail outlet. You're going to see prices that you know. Four ninety nine ninety nine or 495 nine or whatever. Ninety nine seems to be the number the one thing that that Walmart does well as dave actually figured that you know they always wanna be the lowest price they don't actually use ninety nine these ninety seven's that's that's their thing which really kind of interesting and it works for them because even even at two cent difference for whatever reason people still think. They're getting a better deal at walmart at our. I don't get it but humans are wired in a way that that works and there's proof of it all over new look at the retail landscape. Yeah this is a funny one. And i always In my growth acting class. I talk about this and it's nine thousand seven exactly. It used to be nine but walmart is proven and the statistics has and your prices. The nine zero seven and zero seems to be such a such a bad for people but you know ninety. Seven seemed to work. i think. Psychologically we don't wanna pay the whole price so when we see zero we feel like we're paying full price and when we don't see it we feel like we're getting a discount. I don't know but yeah the mind is a funny thing and the other one. I like to point out here. And maybe you're. I'm sorry if i'm spoiling. Your thunder here is people Something plus something for free. They prefer that versus the two things together. And the example. I like to use is people prefer Three cookies for a dollar. And you get a free cupcake to three cookies and a cupcake for dollar. Yeah the word. Free is very powerful. I didn't didn't address when here. But you know bundling or buy one get one free type thing. Those those are very very popular. I mean you think about when you. Mcdonald's what did what did they really kind of of craze at that value. Package that you know you get a drink burger and fries right. You know all of a sudden the combo is the thing right and if you were to buy those things separately it would cost you more than if you'd bought them together so they create this combo all of a sudden. Now they're selling combos crazy because nobody's buying individual as anymore which is in in their in their rights actually better for them. Price wise and Basis but how much they actually sell up the combos versus the individuals a completely blows it out of the water so these psychological thing that comes with pricing these types of things. It is very is very interesting when you when you look at actually how that works. 'cause i mean everyone wants to make sure they're getting a deal that's really one thing as as a consumer everybody wants to be getting the best price for the for the the money that they're that they're paying for that particular product service. Nobody ever says. I want to pay more than i have to. Nobody ever says that right. So you always wanna make sure that in your customers never feel that way about you in your in your product and service that you're providing to them and so making sure that they understand the value that comes with a price in my particular mind is the is the best pricing strategy. But everybody's got thrown thing. They need in. Every company is different. Every product is different. Every market is different. And it just really depends on where where you're marketing your products and services and who you're trying to market to last one. I wanted to talk about in this also somewhat along psychological as well but it helps you kind of break up a this. Basically the same product. Put it into tears so that you can now create additional product lines that you can sell the people in now when they get out of one and one product line they can move into the other so case in point Mobile phone data plans. I mean everybody's favorite thinks you know. Everybody loves rogers and bill and anyways the data plans that you can buy you can buy. Let's say at chunk of data for five gigs. A chunk data for ten. And then you can have an unlimited and if you have all those three things available to you as a consumer you now can choose a plan that works better for you for your budget End from the the the providers affective. They don't really care which one you buy night along as you buy one of them. It doesn't really matter to them because the cost the same for them to provide you with unlimited data far five data retenue data. The only difference is what it means to your pocketbook. So at the end of the day that pricing that pricings has strategy works for companies. Who do those types of things. Where you've got this level level plainfield really. Your cost is always going to be the same. The fiber that they they. They're building. that's gonna cost the same. All the towers are putting out all those fixed costs. They're not going anywhere so how they stay. Spread that out in terms of their customer base. That's where that's where. They're really making making their money in that regard. So let's move onto the next thing here. So here's the million dollar question. Which one do i choose and drum roll please. The answer to that question is standard consultants atmosphere. It depends and i mean it. It may sound like a cop but really at the end of the day. It really truly does depend on your business your goals when marketplace's doing which Headers doing what your customers want. All of those things together are going to help you decide. Which is the right one for you. So i mean we talk about. What's the market roofs. Blown the freaking out in So the i can't. I can't fix us right now. The key thing for for you to think about is really what's going. What does the market rate for your product start there. Look at one of the people are due Doing marketplace and try to understand if the customers that they're serving are happy paying that particular price for that product because if they are. There's a good chance that if you've got a similar product your choice Your whatever pricing strategy. You're going to use is going to be at least at least not rejected right. You have a better chance of finding the prices strategy. That works for you if you're able to really truly understand what it is happening in the marketplace so my final thoughts pricing strategies. It's a process. You have to go through it. There's no real silver bullet to really get to wariness. You need to go. Like i said you really need to understand your market understand your competitors and understand the the value product and service actually has for people. And when you've got those three things together you pick a pricing strategy that you think is gonna Aligned with your business goals and then try it if you get nothing but crickets then you know that your pricing is probably is probably out of out of line out of whack and you know one thing you could also find. You'll also find really quickly if people start at questions but your product and then saved. No i don't really want it and then what you do at that point you start asking questions to say. Okay what is it about the prominence. You don't like and if you start to hear more more than is just too expensive. Maybe take a look and see. If there's something in your pricing strategy that you can do differently to help to work through that trial and error unfortunately A hate to tell people this but it it is really true. Trial and error is a really big part of marketing. You have to try something and see if it's gonna work if it sticks. Do it and do that really will. But if it doesn't change something different in try and try new tactic. Try a new strategy and see if that works for you at the end of the day. That's all you can do in order to be able to to degenerate traction sales and revenue for your business. And that's what's going to help you grow because really and that's why we're all here is to make revenue to help our businesses grow now. We can do questions. That was great. Trevor i really appreciate you taking the time to talk about this and one of the things you know i Shaun weiss keep saying you know we talk experimentation is you know. Here's the formula ready fire. Aim got it ready. Fire aim you know and the it's task so yeah marketing is all about doing that so we do have a question And it's about you know when dealing with personal or professional services like consulting in my business exactly so you know retainer versus hourly verses you know value based versus project based and you know retainer might be any part of those i guess How how do you choose. Which is the right for your one for your business. We just throwing crap of the wall and see what sticks no seriously our customers actually dictate that that are price model for us. 'cause will lilley. I'll tell you what we did is we looked at what other marketing companies were charging. And we figured you know what we're going to try to charge the same thing and see if that works. It really didn't for the customers. We were trying to attract because a lot of the things that the large marketing agencies are billing for. We they're also talking about talking to you. Know billion dollar companies a million dollar companies. We're talking to entrepreneurs and small businesses. So that really didn't jive for us because we can't charge ten thousand dollars for an engagement for for entrepreneur who just who just decided. They wanted to turn their hobby into a business right. That's not going to sell for us. so we will. we did was. We actually created marketing packages. That would fit the budget and the needs for entrepreneur so you we really looked at our our market and our customers in what they needed and trying to build products that would that would servants serve their needs very well depending upon the industry. You're in you. There may be standing nor industry. Standard that you wanna you wanna try to stick to like say you decided you wanted to create a accounting firm. So accounting firms can work in multiple different ways. They can charge customers by the hour or they can charge them on a month retainer fee but depending on the type of accounting services that they're offering if it's project based you can make make you say you do your taxes for you for your business for an x. amount but that's the only thing i'm gonna do for you over the course of the year the rest of the earth you want if you want My services you have to pay me on a monthly basis or we can start a new project but it really depends on what your customers comfortable with and for us what we did was. We created multiple streams in that rate. So you know we've got in small business packages available for small business owners who who we were will do will teach you what you need to know. And then send you on your way We have project based things where we would be qena. What for this specific period of time do x ray the project based ones are usually for meteorological Npr work so you know if companies got a new launch coming up would do their pr for them for a six month period to help get help. Get them that boosted they need. And that's a specific project. Over the course of a period of time and then we also have long retainer stuff so where we actually work with kinds on a regular basis which we with our social media so or content development The social media. We would manage social media platforms for our customers. And so we're managing creating content engagement all those types of things so something like that is going to be on a retainer basis that. That's a monthly a monthly recurring cost. recruiting revenue for us. Because this is this is what that particular customer needs so we we try to to try to build stuff that our that our customers are going to need gonna help them at whatever stage. They're at their business so a lot of times. People have a hard time selling their product. And there's or service and you know. I tool i like to recommend. Is you know price. Anchoring when you're sailing you know how can you apply price anchoring to your service based business to debut a value based pricing or two instead of to move away from hourly thoughts on that. Yeah so i mean. I find that again. It really depends on what the individual customer that you're looking for re also can customize any any one of our services that that people need so if you if you need you know we have our our small our social media starter kit for example say so social media starter. Kit will basically allow you to as an entrepreneur will teach. You will teach you what we need to know. Build a strategy for you for your social media. Industry had to do it in a send you on your way but if there was something out of the at that you just needed what say you just needed a strategy part we can build a strategy for you. Just call it a day right and so from to get back to your point about price anchoring for the types of business when you're talking about these specifically services it's really what the individual customer that you're trying to attract what they are willing to pay you for the type of service you provide for them. That's how i always looked at you. Tell me what you need. I'll tell you how much it will cost you. Tell me if you can afford that and the other way potentially look at this is how much saving or. How much pain are you taking away you know. And and look willing to pay his all relative relative because if you come at approach and say here. I've got this widget. I wanna sell to you for ten thousand dollars. No all right. But hey here. I've got this widget. It's you you put in your car and it prevents all rushed for your car and your car will never need maintenance for the rest of your life and it cost ten thousand dollars Okay maybe i'm talking right now. I'm a little more interested. So you say you know this can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars over the life of your okay now. You've price anchored now. You're so sailing and pricing are two different things and eight. Can you do know when it's a sales technique or whether it's pricing strategy. That isn't working. It's a very good question. And simply because sales techniques can be applied differently by different people. It depends on a get to go back to the old consultants. It depends on. Who's doing the selling because if you've got a really good salesperson who's able to sell ice to eskimos than maybe your prices. She's not going to be the not going to be an issue but if the person can't really sell you don't really gonna be really able to understand what the price the problem is that it actually you. Could i guess really kinda dig that out in the survey questions. They're willing to answer for you later on like why. They didn't why they chose not to buy. And that asking those types of questions might be able to point you in the right direction. And i mean sometimes you could ask a similar. A really simple pointed questions. Do not like a sales person. You were talking to sometimes in some in some cases that's exactly why if the salesperson with the deemed to push you or didn't seem very trustworthy or you know they date. They didn't get a good feel for them. That can kill a business deal for sure regardless of wet which is your pricing strategy is right so you just have to ask the right questions. I guess if you're finding that you're not getting getting any traction really at the end of the day though for for me try different. Pricing is is a very dynamic thing. Because you can say you know you're gonna give somebody discount say and though by it but if you don't give them that ten percent discount they wouldn't buy it and so that might put in a position where you're start of one of. I had a permanent ten percent ten percent discount price and just left it that that that lower price. Would i make more sales if you do than you know. Give you up than someone else. Ask for another discount. You say sorry. I can't give you and the other side of the other side of that coin within be if you're in a situation that this is kind of a sales tactic as well but if you ever in a situation where someone says. I do not want to buy from you unless you give me a discount. I would run far away from those people simply because they only want to. They only want to grind your price down to the bare minimum. And they don't really having value for the product or service that you that you provide if somebody sees the value in what you do. They more than likely. If you've got a fair price you priced it fairly. They will pay that price without a discount. That's just my opinion. I agree and i mean there's nothing wrong with having a discount but not everyone likes one but at the same time you know we need to get into if this is a service or product subscription. Ideally we're not just buying it once you know that we don't. We're not always coming all. I want another one but give me twenty five percent off you want customers who appreciate you and are not going to cost you more money than they're worth because if you're on the phone with them constantly negotiating versus actually delivering whatever. Then what's the value there. Yep and the other thing. Is you know people people if they value what it is that you're doing for them. They're mostly reasonable so they want a pair of pay fair price for it. They don't want it to be overcharged right. So there's a fine bounds between the two and you know again. Pricier products is sometimes. It's a trial and error. So if you think that your product is worth fifteen hundred dollars precedent fifteen hundred dollars but if you find that nobody really buying it or he will say people are buying into the say. I want a ten percent discount and you start to see more people wanting to buy it at a lower price you could technically drop your load drop to the lower price in colin day and make that your new price point where you go and then just keeps selling absolutely so you know. There's a lotta talk about dynamic pricing and people don't really understand it a lottery even think about it. As a as an option you know dynamic pricing such as what uber called surge pricing. so in. it's really busy charging more or same thing ever but you know we say that. But it's we it's the same thing with Hotels same thing with house rental same thing with planes to getting plane tickets so the dynamic pricing you know we didn't really dislike it and ober but we it everywhere else. It is generally accepted Have you seen at work and have you seen it work with any of the other small businesses sectors that you know we haven't really thought of a very good question and i mean spot there yet because we we do. You mentioned boston where you see it. Most with specifically airlines. I mean the the cost of a seat airline to to to the airline carrier. It's all the same but they could sell it easily for to the price anchor gators or the to business class people or they sell it to you. Know air that do you call a flight. Wise is escaping me tripadvisor yet. They'll those types of companies and so it's like or travel agencies even so it's all the same it's a different prices for the same thing and it's it's just people that have come to accept that you know your your goal is really to drive down that price to get it down to lowes possible price possible because there's probably somebody out there whose maiden payless hotels Hotels are in that same. Same vein as well so agni just pointed out. Trains do the same thing. Yeah it is. it's to me. I oh inmates you may find that their car dealerships to. I'm of the mind that i don't want i don't want to negotiate. But i think that i'm gonna price my product would is what i think is fair for services i had that i provide and value that i'm going to provide to you. I'm not trying to haggle with the pricing right. I'm giving you a fair price. I'm not trying to gouge you. That's not what we do here. You know what the price of we've chosen is what we think is a fair representation of the of the service who provide a value revived the people that we do at for. If you do not find that is to be the case. I'm not trying to haggle with you to try to get to get fifty percents off the price. That's not how role. But if i was in the airline business maybe a mike because i've got all these extra seats that i have to sell. It's gonna cost me the same amount of money to to run an empty plane as it is. Run a full plane. So i'm gonna do whatever i can jam as many people in there as they can and who cares if that's what the you know people get mad about it. If if the person aside to pay less than than than you did for your seat you should you should shop they shop f. That's the industry the airline industries motto. Right loud though but that that's how they think these girls. They wouldn't price in like that. But i wouldn't be surprised to see more and more of this kind of thing happening saying even i don't know physiotherapists saying you know. Our rates are cheaper on mondays. Because it's a slow day Or the thing the thing those types of services though because they're subsidized by By the government and insurance companies it may not matter to them what they would they you come on. I don't really care and that was just you know maybe a bad example. But what about Restaurants you know food goes up after a certain time. Beer goes up after a certain time you know. They have happy hour pricing and actually that. That's actually a good point. Happy hour pricing. The there's a lot of companies that there were restaurants are Wanting to get people to come into their savage fans or maybe not come into go to their patios at least go to their establishments because they are really hurting right now so they may have to be in a position where they may have to slash their prices. Because listen. ain't nobody going to a fine dining restaurant at this point in time right now right so if you wanna get people in the door you may have to start changing some of the pricing or the or the business model that you've got even to be able to to accommodate right. I think you'd be surprised. How many people are going out to high end restaurants right now. I thought i you know. I talked to friends of mine. And you know this is a side pricing. But you know they're going on multiple dates a week and going out to dinner to like First person to mention this to me. It's like you know we shut down all these restaurants and we shut down all these businesses but no one shut down the dating apps people going virtual dates the right. They zoom dates all the time. I told you there's a lot of non virtual dating going on. And i'm not you know i don't care like this is back to pricing. When it gets busy you know again. Restaurants now I've been a few places where you know. Oh it's it's becoming a dinner time. We're going to have to ask you to kind of wrap up because they've got reservations or because there's different types of different pricing or expecting different people to come in because they only have a certain amount room. It's really a much less than they used to have. So think about you know that kind of a strategy because there is a lot of potential there when to encourage a consumer behavior. And you also probably could do something like that. It was the software as a service companies. Definitely i'd have to think of a how i would implement something like that in in the past company. Yeah but something like that would mean. It's probably better for tiered pricing than anything. But you you. You're their servers. Are the service cost causing your service. Cost right so at that point you know you could say you know if if you use something if you use our product during the during this time of day is cheaper. I mean the also do that with the you know the utility companies right absolutely so let me ask you one about one of my favorites premium pricing strategy and we always talk about loss leader penetration pricing getting low. But let's take the other approach. You know Having being the high price person with a quality product you know how do we. How do you position your brand. That way how i would do. It is again the concept the strategy is still the same. You wanna analyze the market figuring out what everybody else is doing. What and how that's playing out but you look at your customer base. You say okay now. What if i'm if. I'm a company like like lamborghini. I'm looking at my target audience and saying you know we've got this great new car that's coming out you do you do an event figure the pricing strategy that you're gonna use is going to be. Let's get them as quickly as possible. Do may be a special additional offer. So maybe you get you know you get to buy your car but will do custom terrier for you that it. That isn't done for everybody else or you know you'll you'll get an extra set of rims or something that will be cast. Sweeten the pot for that to make the experience more personable than everybody wants a individual individual attention in that regard so say that you've got a custom-made custom-made lamborghini that nobody else has. That's that's gold right. People want that type of to be able to have that type of of flashy thing. That's going to say no one. I have the nobody else does. If you've got that kind of money and you know there's lots of ways. Yeah there's lots of ways to separate yourself apart and change the landscape you know. We talked about professional services businesses. 'cause there was one of the good questions earlier but why not have a premium strategy related to that i. I'm just going to pick a random thing. I'm an accountant because you know they're everywhere and you know we. They fight on price a for everything. But what happens if i am the House call accountant. Come in a suit. I bring a table now because it's cova and we sit outside. I i bring coffee. We do it like i. it's a real personalized high end. Experience on this is not necessarily a good example but again you're giving somebody something that nobody else is getting. Yes and so. That's that's the point is that you're you're you're going As they above and beyond but above and beyond sometimes cost money. Yeah absolutely and you're you're delivering a different service. No one else would potentially You know like Cirque du soleil is a great example of how they changed circus industry and stripped away a lot of parts in charge and charge the premium package and set themselves apart like when you're looking at a premium strategy or thinking about your pricing thinking about think about pricing higher. I like to talk to a lot of startups who i talked a lot of startups and they tend to price their products to low and think because they're started they value whatever they're offering too little and i suggest start thinking about that white glove service. Because you really need to get your customers to that. Aha moment so that they're going to be repeat. Customers are going to love your product. They're going to spread the word also. There's a there's a there's a perception low value when it comes to low cost. You really want to avoid that right. Yeah you want avoid that and you wanna give them a good experience and you can't give them that experience if you're giving them a low cost you need to have better support people you need to be in communication with them like if you're doing a fast thing that That connects to my accounting software. To give me reports. I'm not going to be happy until i'm getting the reports. I want so i want to pay more and so on handled me in that first couple of days to get everything integrated and get my report. Sprinting away i want and once i have them. Guess what. I'm not going to be bugging you anymore. But why wouldn't they charge more for that than saying. Here's our api. Go ahead and do it. And you're frustrating for six months working on it. But i'm only paying forty nine ninety nine a month. I mean. see what you can do to different yourself from the competition and have a premium strategy. This is what we do. We go that extra mile. We're on the phone with you. We have a direct line customer service. You have a direct grab whatever it is just makes you if you if you just got your first round of funding. You don't burn through your funding bill. The player customer service things in not being able to provide an actual product that that has been my one caveat that we i mean obviously But my point being is instead of charging forty nine ninety nine a month you could probably charge to fifty or three hundred or five hundred a month. If you're giving people the exact thing they need hand holding and that means you can actually hire people to do that. So it's the other way around. That's why it's it's making sure you can really give that experience to people. And then you know maybe you start working on your price skimming as you mentioned earlier as as you figure out how to automate. How do you figure to give that best that experienced cheaper and faster you can start bringing that product line down and maybe introducing new premium stuff. So what do you got coming up. we are doing our necks masterclass. On the twenty fifth and as sad as the sound in kansas broach. The topic to me. Why we really. She's like yet. Think about people are buying People are planning their marketing strategies for for christmas. Now yeah i mean so now. Be the time if you if you haven't started on your your holiday marketing strategy if your position to get increased business for for your holidays as well you're you're a little bit behind the eight ball. The other thing is because the first three quarters of twenty twenty were really horrible for for a lotta people trying to finish with with a big flourish in q four is really important. So what are we need to do to to start to get people's attention now that we're coming at want. I hate to see that. We're coming out of the renault close to that but as business starting to get kind of able to ramp up again in be in give back to people getting back to work and you know there's there's a whole host of other things that come with that that you need to think about businesses happening again. The mall seemed to be full. Traffic is just as bad as it was. So yeah you know we don't to say not only are you. You're gonna protect your employees but how you gonna protect your customers right.

mind underscore score and the podcast page it says wreck on the nose enjoy a hello and welcome to the cool kids table podcast my guest today is kelsey buddy yes of a guy's been those podcasts and she's also author that runs a k martin is rampage kelsey how're you doing good how are you thanks for having me on your show thank you for coming on 'em it was it was pretty intense i was is in decline up for the weekend 'em volunteering with an organization a border angels i don't know if you've heard of them 'em they're pretty known as they started with what call what they call the water drop offs 'em so what they do is they go out into the desert where most of these immigrants walk through and they drop off like jugs of water 'em and they tried to kind of see like where they see that they had been walking through so that people could have water out there and to decrease it that that happened 'em for migrants but they started this new thing called kevin love end so what they do is twice a month they go out into one with donations from everywhere and anyone who comes there were so many people from outlay oakland san francisco like that made the weekend just to go to san diego and be a part of this end 'em they basically divided us into groups a with different leaders and we hit different shelters 'em where a lot of them are staying and we got to first and foremost like we were there to drop off donations shannon's 'em but we got the interact with the kids in hear their stories 'em the mothers the there was one shelter we went through with only men and so i got to like talking to them and what they were running from in what they were 'em you know leaving back home so it's really interesting anes so many mixed emotions 'em from it all end just such a humbling experience and it just at ground view like it reminds me of like why why we advocate for people and why we why we do this like why we're here to be united and help each other and be a part of so wonderful that's great to hear 'em i'll actually ratings that i don't think it's a felony by notes a crime if you go out there input water now like giving them food it's ridiculous but you can't like you could go out there like the minimum in militia like with guns and ammo and like protecting the country and that's fine that's tolerated that's allowed and yet if you go out there were like water bottles some food like not food but like i guess nonperishable like you could be convicted of a crime yeah there was a guy that was just arrested that did it in texas i can't think of his name right now 'em but that that was pretty pretty viral 'em an yeah the i guess now it's a crime in so that's why border angels in china see other ways they can help 'em but it's unfortunate that it's a crime 'em end it's ridiculous because it really is just like it's not compression yeah it's just being compassionate there's so many deaths from people that make that sacrifice to cross through the through the desert in so they you know they're they were dropping off waters have a friend who did it and she told me that like she and another friend took also like you know sanitary pads and tampons for the women and were also leaving their 'em but from what i have heard 'em or what i heard this weekend from some of the leaders i guess a lot of the ice officers were dumping out these water the water will kind of i mean i don't question their morals and ethics but like that extra you know like i get it to job to protect the country that's how you see protecting the country is leading these people are running for the life most of the time not even after the water in the desert like wow yeah kind of you know it's unnecessary you well that's the other young say extra a question will the first time doing this type of things not this happening but i mean what the border angels yeah so 'em i have hey going on fetal i guess you could say a friend who worked through the v eight in they went to the actual camps 'em end so when they did it it was more the individual like thing i him in his just group of friends 'em took a bunch of donation dropped him off 'em and he had tell told me that a lot of the people didn't have shoes didn't have socks 'em in were barefoot or needed shoes and so he was saying that some of the even the kids like he would have like you know balls and crayons and stuff for them and they want it shoes and so i spoke to some of my friends and i'm you know i think i'm gonna do is shoot drive in i did on behalf of confidence in myself so 'em that's how i promoted marketed i guess you could say but 'em i sorry i like my train of thought 'em so i did i did the to drive on behalf of accounting those but i put it in all my social media and i just tell people i'm just collecting shoes i've heard that they need shoes 'em so we collected man my friend cindy who just decided to join in 'em she put a box out one of the gyms locally here in monroe yet and then one at a restaurant and then through our friends be collected collected over two hundred pairs of shoes right yeah i end 'em we took them out there but so what okay so my point was we try to do this you drive and we were just gonna drop him off somewhere because i didn't know i you know i was like i'm not gonna tj by myself to take them i don't know where i would go and so i was reaching out to organizations in china sea okay who takes donations over there and so then 'em one of my friends is like hey you know have you heard of border angels they do the water drop also as i go yeah i've heard of the water droplets i heard about it actually on the news and uneasy feeling 'em they had interviewed like the guy that started that end so she was just like yeah i'm sure they do donations nations to so then when i looked on their website and reached out to sea or the person that organized is that her name was meghan she said oh well we just started this new thing where were taking groups of people to interact with people and show them that not all americans are antigay immigrants in that we do care 'em end so she's like were calling it carbon a love and we go out there and take the stuff and so then i told my friend cindy you wanna come with me like will just take the shoes but also volunteer so we arrives friday the drop off took everything that we collected from out here we had people from outlay irvine you see monroe v a l money any 'em everywhere acadia that just gave his shoes in a lot of people were asking like do you need diapers unique this but i just did only shoes because it's gonna be easier for us to just carry and load up a car 'em but now i wanna do it again in there's so much more that people need 'em but yeah so we show up drop off friday and then saturday we met with them at ten pm and it's a group of a bunch of people and i'm talking like people from everywhere i met a lawyer i met a like commercial real estate guy gets it they nandy nettles like you know like you could tell that these people had money in on asleep to the point where like they were all daycare like they they don't care they would have you would think they wouldn't care you know like this is in my problem but there's just so many people that like care and it was nice to see like caucasian then filipinos roseanne of asian descent african americans a lot of latino there that care an i think it was also nice for the immigrants to see that because a lot of them there have this mentality that we are ugly that we don't care about them and we don't care if they die in the desert and we don't care what their issues are and so them seeing like diversity diversity of the people that were volunteering there wasn't armenian family it was the father the wife and three daughters and they go at least once a month to do this and they they collect from their community and they you know get the nation's together together and go once a month and i was just like wow like it was really nice to see the diverse city 'em especially i mean i'll be honest especially from the caucasian community i think a lot of us especially latinos that are trying advocate for people and we're seeing king 'em the racism and discrimination we don't know about you guys i've gotten to the point where i'm like fuck white people sometimes you know because of this shit i've read in this day and i'm just like i'm like screw you guys you know for treating people this way for treating my community this way but the people i met this weekend where like some of us give a shit an actually the guy that the commercial real estate guy and his wife were there his wife is not white she's like 'em portuguese and something else but she speaks spanish and so they met volunteering and so they and they dated and got married and so he was telling me like i don't talk to my parents they're very racist i work in an office were almost everybody voted for trump but i am the voice in that office that you hate the end tells people like get out there get out there and volunteer just once and you will see that this is these are criminals these gang members these are people running from that and so he they do it all the time and they work with other organizations stations to they threw a charity events there people money they thought that you were telling me about a dinner where like people are gonna pay five hundred dollars to go this dinner and they have to like donate in all this stuff so they them alone where amazing and then they they had she had other friends there that were part of some kind of like women's group of like rich women housewives that are just trying to see how they can help in collecting money so yeah it was it was crazy crazy to see people from everywhere you know from port to rich to this is what i do to a nurse or just a lady who said oh i just wanna bring my daughter so she could see what's going on in there was a couple who took a newborn baby like not newborn but i think he was like eleven months or something and they're like yeah we do this all the time and the lady had the little like back perks where you put him in she had the baby in the back and she was rolling in the tj like that and i was just like wow like this is amazing so a lot of people that care a lot of people that do care i think it's hard for these immigrants to see that because of what's going on in the news in what you know that right now it seems like trump's voice and whoever's fans my hand might be a little louder than the rest of us but there is a lot of people who care in a lot of people doing donated things so it was nice to see that unity that's it's awesome next time you 'em do that let me know and i'll shut it out to my listeners and my social media so that we can get more goes yes so i haven't pretty crazy summer 'em like 'cause i'm in weddings and all kinds of stuff stuff and i'm starting a new job and relocating so i'm thinking around september but i do wanna start promoting it soon 'em what i did hear from the people is a lot of them were like oh i've been here for eight days i've been here for fifteen days i've been here for two three months in there just kind of waiting there waiting for their application to be processor waiting to be called they literally are a number and it's like i'm number one thousand four hundred blah blah blah and i'm waiting kind of thing so they all have a number and they're just kind of way at these shelters 'em so but a lot of them were saying i was asking because i was like i wanna do this again i wanna know what i need to bring so the border has set new laws because apparently a lot organizations where like bringing donations in they don't take you shoes anymore we got fined we pay the fine to get the shoes across in the guy a that organizes with border angels kinda knew the cop the officer and sort of rights i'm like come on dude like we're just gonna take another shelters but they don't take you you can't get used closed or you issues across anymore because they think you're gonna like set up a yankees in you know like a slot me end right othello 'em but because they knew border angels the guy was like all right just pay this much and then you know you can get across 'em but he literally first and last time because we had bags and bags issues and then obviously other people donated other things but you can donate used blankets you can donate use closed or you issues have to be news for you to get it across which is crazy you'd think people would wanna sell more new things they use things but i don't know what it is that mexico's law role is they said that it was 'em to stop disease spreading stuff like that like but honestly i think it's just you know a political thing 'em so what a lot of people were saying that they needed was like 'em underwear ross the men needed boxers 'em socks end obviously like a toothbrush deodorant shampoos the ladies would be like oh do you have any kids lotion like you know and then like a bug spray spray and things like that because there's so many of them in these shelters that only can you know sheltered let's say a hundred people but the shelters at full capacity out like two hundred and so they're like sharing beds then 'em you know murders both sanitary conditions doubtedly so it's just the basic necessities so i saw another family that apparently does this austin and what they did 'em the guy was telling me that what they did is they had people make the block bags for them like do you wanna donate make twenty thirties it block bags like your family makes twenty thirty and then the next family makes twenty thirty and put you know like a pot in there for a woman in shampoo who in toothbrush and so then it was easier with them with their donations 'cause they were just handing out these the blog back so i definitely think that's something i would wanna do next time in 'em and just kalac like hot you know packaging of like underwear and socks for men for women for kids because think about it they're just coming here with the honor yeah in a backpack of maybe one outfit because you can't carry that much walking through all of that 'em in a lot of them did how like there was a woman that was like oh do you have anything in the site six shoes because i've been wearing the sites nine and so i'm wearing to three sox to just to fit into the shoe an eye tire really tight end it's still really big and so we were able to we had actually a couple of pairs of shoes in her size and so she was able to pick a pair out so that was nice but unfortunately the shoes do have to be neil 'em in the closed does have convenient because there is fines and all kinds of stuff but a lot of the people did need 'em you know there were a lot of the women were like i need a bra i need a there was a lady that showed me her bra and it was like she had a not tied for the drop of the bra to the other piece like holding it with like something because they had ribs and so they it's crazy because we don't think about that stuff you know like we don't think like we go into are jordan grab a pair of underwear everytime you shower or change in the simple fact that like that's all they wanted 'em an individual's just little things that they want it like i had a i met a sixteen year old boy who came here by himself a both of his brothers were killed and his father he was living with his a grandmother his grandpa died of whatever he wasn't killed he died of you know illness and so his grandmother told him like you have to go because i'm not gonna be here for a long so i'm gonna move where you know soandso end we can't feed you so you have to go and find a better life and there's we have family in the u s go to that kind of thing so he took off he left he was from me choke on me he goal and he was sixteen seniors old andy she didn't want anything so i was like hey we have t shirts there's jeans their shoes like you know is there anything you need and he's like no he's like i'm okay and i was like really trend of like well what do you mean like talk to me kind of thing he's like i don't need anything and so i introduced myself we started talking he starts telling me a little bit of his story in 'em i asked him like you know how how you feeling feeling like if you don't mind sharing like are you scared or how did you make the decision to just calm and then he's like well i didn't wanna leave but 'em you know my brothers were killed father was killed then there's so much violence and the pardon me choke on i'm from my grandmother pretty much just like i can't feed you so you need to figure it out and so i just grabbed my stuff and took off and he's like and i'm just kind of waiting like i'm just waiting in hopefully i can get through and meet up with my family and work and make money and make a living like that's all i wanna do a but he didn't want anything from the donations and then at so you know i left him alone talked to him a little bit and then he didn't seem like you really wanna talk so i kind of left malone told him to uber sharing and then i went interacted with the kids and helped out with their donations and then he comes over and i just felt like a tap on my shoulder and he said hey do you have pen and paper knows like like line paper like in he's like yeah i i'd like to write like just right and i was just like wow like everything that we brought anything in everything saying he just wanted pen and paper and so then we made it a mission to find painting paper because we had divided donations into like three pieces 'cause we were going to three different shelters for the day and there was no pen and paper in the load motive donations we had brought to that sheltered crayons and color color jokes yeah but we didn't think of something so simple pen and paper and so i totally other girls any other people i don't think we need pen and paper this kid didn't one thing but pen and paper i need to find pen and paper and so we ended up finding funding paper in halos happy and he's like oh gosh yeah it's like you know i appreciate you know you making the effort to like find it for me and and i just told him like take care of yourselves in you know have faith and i hope that you can get across and be with their family because he he had no one you know i at sixteen i can't even imagine that you know i'm fortunate and they have both parents and you know four siblings and like to be alone trying to get into a different country not lower language and and say this is we were scared of this is why we wanna wall this is who were you know using these political targets that like this is wrong meal battle mris i think he says like yeah it's ridiculous hearing a story like that how we just polly a student probably a writer an uncapped potential and just like but you know that's what sucks well what if you're asking for like you have shoes khloe whatever like what do you want what do you need any of that momentum good yeah they do not and he told me he told me he's like i don't need anything because he's like at this shelter we could only be here for a short period of time he's like so i don't know where i'm going after this he said 'em if i have to stay in one i have to find a job 'em in a place to lead or the he would probably go like another shelter that king housing longer 'em but he's waiting for a process you know he he brought all the death certificates of the people that have died in his family so he he you know he was applying for asylum but he said i don't know where i'm going so if i take any of you know that stuff he's like see i've got one of those courses no miles west got it on like i'm just gonna be carrying an i just felt like wow like to be in that unknown not knowing where you're gonna end up nex 'em it it's i can't imagine i just can't imagine i've been in situations you know in childhood i've had sort of a rough childhood single mom 'em stepdad was deported and so i've i've loved you know wondering you know how are we pay rent or bills or maybe even can say i've been hungry but not to that extreme you know and i just couldn't imagine because here you know the people around you if it's the town you grew up in your mom or family family can reach out to friends and and maybe really really seek help you know and they'll help you if you really need it but it being in that situation for a lot of these people it's they don't know anything they don't know anyone and they're coming from violent violent backgrounds they're coming from troubled by dirty 'em in a lot of them had questions it was crazy because you'd start conversation with them and they would be like oh was it was like you're the american so you're gonna be able to answer the questions to all of my worries kind of thing and so i had mothers our like 'em i heard this question so much and it was so hard for me to not be able to to give them that oh no you're gonna be okay but a lot of them were asking are they gonna take my kids away and so this whole kids in cages thing is a big deal and the way you know it's being you know it shouldn't be a bigger deal he shouldn't be happening but to them it's the biggest fear right now and i met women like with three four kids they were their biggest concern was that we're we're gonna end up you know it was like are they gonna take my kids away now that i'm my application is there are they gonna take my kids away as it was just really hard for me to hear them you know i sat question because i couldn't tell them no i couldn't tell them you're gonna be okay i i didn't know what to say i just told them just getting no you know a lot of them were very face in you know hopeful in religious and so i just kept saying like deals get in all end you know that they would answer well 'em i don't regret coming here you know i made this decision because of what i've been dealing with over there and i'm i'm hopeful like they would just say i'm hopeful i'm hopeful and i hope that they don't separate us but they had three year old four year old five year olds the most we saw was four five to six year olds with them on there was a little girl she was so sweet she comes up to me and she goes you're pretty and it just comes and goes pretty much just it's like oh thank you and i was like what's your name in you know start talking with her and i had chocolates like do you want a draw with me she goes she was like five years old and i have to try really hard pill for me to swallow and so i started talking to her and i was like where you from and she goes oh i'm from minnesota and i was like who who here with and she said oh i'm here with my mom and my brother and that's my brother over there to he would like older kid as well and i was like okay i was like are you the youngest when she goes yeah an asteroid like 'em you know like would you like to do what do you like to do for fun it's like well there i'd just like to play with whatever they like toys that they had their and stuff and she looks at me and she goes do you know how long were gonna be here in i was thrown off like super thrown off by the question and i said no 'em now i called her mom as he does signal numbers he died don't know and i was just like oh it's like do you know how long you've been here and she goes three months i'm five days like proven to be counting and i i asked her i said i would say so like how do you know that she said well is me mommy nosy said federal federal muslim garland audio like we have a calendar and i just thought i are biggest worry is on the daily are what like you know we think about random things not how many more days will be here how many more days till we get somewhere how many more days to we have stability end as the therapists i thought oh the trauma that's what other generations that's when the segway to as well as you being a therapists like we talked about you know the bushy here the video games the action movies like oh you're the traumatizing to the children that's why there's so much violent crime now allow that's all bullshit you know and yet these kids were presenting themselves you know the ones here at the concentration camps are being presented in court as my five year old you know what what what kind of legal system is is in place to allow that there's already been reports of inappropriate touching and all that they my mistake and i'm this i but i read something this weekend but i can't verify that there's a lecture and go to the restroom i have a thrill to baltimore for my daughter doesn't have i told her he has restroom between seven am and nine am she doesn't understand what that means so do you go to the bathroom before we go newish that's fine and then we get and i'm like i just feel like you're so three year old yeah we can go to the bathroom right now they're sleeping on the floor like i just it's between it's not an actual numbers but it's between a hundred fifty dollars which is ridiculous to seven hundred fifty dollars a day that they're spending us taxpayers are paying for these for profit concentration camps to hold these children and yet they have to pay still have so they don't have body wash i mean they were they were paying it's tough for profit prisons these all backhand favors that how do we allow this to happen is what i keep telling myself like we there these somebody should be held accountable because like i think that's how we started a conversation through social media 'em i put that on the concentration camps and then you apply to that and that's where this all kicked off because we're on the same page when neil social media i saw you account and i saw that we were doing a holy fuck no woman she's up on game a lot of i'm not naive that everybody has a lot going on so some people telling me like i like listening to my good friend israel's podcast episode with you because because he hasn't been for me about stuff that i'm oblivious to 'cause i got so much going on in life and so having him on like brought up so many different topics that people were like oh shit like this is going on right now and when i saw here's how the ocean a woman she knows about all this stuff because a lot of people you kinda i post something he'll get a few like hey what is that mean like what like when when i did yesterday the seven hundred fifty dollars i like it's not in absolute numbers so don't let the right wing media like this pruitt but it's between the hundred fifty seven hundred fifty per person swords and average that we should be about three four hundred eight but they're spending four hundred day on a person that's what you're paying should they have some basic necessities i'm not saying let under my kings fucking put him in cages either fucking well no i i totally agree with you in and the thing is is like we all this is already a big discussion of how much we spend in jails right and how many people are in there for the stupidest crime i understand that if you murder and rape people and did something serious than you deserve to be in there and you know do time or whatever but but there is people in their first getting pulled over three times times with weeden now you were in there for five years or whatever it is you know that they did it and i'm not saying don't hold people accountable for their crimes and i know that there has to be laws in place and all of that but these are children children who don't understand why they're being cage children whose parents one day told them were dating and when you're five years old we heard you say but you also questioning why going where we were going now why would go so far you know and so now you have four five year olds that don't understand why they've been walking for three four days like there was a mother who told me where she came from in you know she said i was like how long did it take you guys and she said a four days in five night or sorry five nights for knights in five days anthem and so these kids are wondering why the hell have i been walking or arriving in strange places that i don't know or hiding or or you know sleeping on the floor in comparison to whatever they had at home i'm sure they're situation wasn't good at home i'm not saying they had a two story got so as you know a really nice bed but in comparison to whatever they had they don't understand you know they just don't understand and so now there are arriving at these camps or shelters in especially in the camps in the shelters they have the freedom to be outside because these are the people that have applied in are waiting but these shelters don't have anything i have a picture that i took a kitchen and i can share it and you can post 'em i got permission from nate a shelter to take a picture and it it's a small kitchen with like this shelf that's native just the thin would peas in then there's a really a tiny stove and it's supposed to cook and feed more than a hundred and fifty people but it looks like it's falling apart like literally looks like you put one thing on the shelf and it's gonna fall and so it was just they don't have the money one of the priest or he's a pastor sorry that ran ran one of the shelters he was crying he was crying because i guess we we're gonna sation that has brought the most donations in a while 'em and so he was crying and he just said you know god bless you guys thank you so much and it was just crazy to see you know how especially in one of these shelters don't have funding compared to some of the shelters we have here we already have that issue in america where there isn't enough funding in are homeless community is only increasing you know but there they really don't have anything and so when they said you know donate food all they want is rice beans in a big thing of so by like you don't need to bring the me you don't need to bring them anything that is you know that's all they want is like oh bring a school style is the rice and beans next time 'cause we like real to bring next time and they're like me he got he got the scene is like it was the simple stuff and we can go into are pantry in make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich you and i ran out and be like hey you wanna stay let's go get some food like we can't have a burger we can have these things and they just want the simple simple simple simple this thing just eat and so it was just it it's so it's so dehumanizing to these people it's the kids are even though they had such a wonderful spirit still they were laughing giggling they were coloring you know 'em with us and interacting but i i can't imagine having that much stress at three four five six years old or even even as a teenager that sixteen year old boy like all he had a wellness magical year sixteen i'm sure he had friends i'm sure he had you know family in not not only that but like he's had these deaths in his family and then his just telling him you have to go and he told me his brother died may it was like late may and then the the the last brother that was killed the late may and his criminals like you have to go so he hasn't even had stopped processed grieved that time to grieve no grieving is goes in stages you know so you can even stop in cry because you have to figure out what you have to do next entered take off on his own an i mean i get it his grandma couldn't come with among not saying oh why they let him go alone no but like it will it took so much of him to just get his things and go by himself and watching him sit there like he was just watching you know we all arrive and the kids the kids run up to you right away and they're like china some of them were like do i want you to or things like that and we couldn't get one more cell phone we couldn't give them cash or anything but they the kids were happy to see other people end so he was one of the people that caught my eye because he was just kind of sitting back and just kind of watching and i'm sure a lot of them think like oh these bingles are coming here giving us there you know leftovers kind of thing because there's some people that look thing green i'm not gonna lie there's some people that would just kind watches like oh we don't want any shit like you know because it's that pride of like you're here to be little me you're here to give me your leftovers but you don't understand me and so i kinda got a little bit of that vibe from him when i first went up to him because he was just like oh no no no people not like a little bit of attitude like i don't need ship from you but i have teenage brothers and i can't imagine how he must feel in that feeling of like i don't have anything who the hell are you to come here 'em in think you understand me but once i got the talking with him and we connected 'cause my step that is from me chuck on 'em in my stepdad was actually killed in violence and you talk on 'em after a couple of years of being out there he was also deported in so i told him oh you know i i've been to me choke on a couple of times when i was younger i can't imagine the violence that's going on there but i i was like you know my stepdad was from there and he was unfortunately only a victim of that and so then that's when he start opening up and was like yeah well my dad would kill my brothers were killed and and he just like but i don't need anything thank you because i don't know where i'm going max and i don't know where i'm what i'm gonna take my with me and i'm just like okay and so when he came up to me and want it just pen and paper i did whatever it may be that vapor yeah the such unfortunate thing 'cause you know this ron happens all around the world right and when it makes big news like oh this is what's going on in china communist china they're doing this like all daniels commies they gotta protect the people they gotta take care of the people in this is i'm from mexico was born there these are neighbors these are people but one thing i lived there for twenty nine years ago is telling you it's like seventy five percent mexican end there in century city imani or was there still are you just put some the mayor put something yesterday that you know they they will not assist ice or anything like that you know they go by the law and 'cause i can't just god that's another thing i wanna get into you know but like i can just come and get you know you you have to have a warrant a warrant signed by judge in ice wines are not signed by choice not even though it isn't official document it's not it won't stand up in court but if you don't know your rights and i that's what i was doing the research onto you know totally like i'm a i'm a research much i just kinda like reid what i like and in and i learned that will into it but after this one out okay she's gonna come with no hey i gotta have my on this topic for you i know but just because okay swells the last two three days just browsing different website three all stuff that i do i've talked about it before i do that if i look for the source that's why would i put that thing yesterday i i followed up with like immigration come way down way down there's more people going to mexico coming this way and these are the these are facts like people are choosing to ignore facts in favor of their opinions and the people coming over here yes someone sneaking right some people some bad apples others who were there isn't anything in any community there's a few bad apples some people will pay the port and get you into trouble yes but we topic that we can get into in probably be here for hours but honestly why is there those bad apples you were traumatized further your entire life you come from poverty as i need to find a way to survive and if it's killing and robbing i it's not the right thing to do but some of them that's that's why do we have in these you know areas urban areas and nellie or gang members and is there it's out of all time high end the violence but all those kids knew was that they come from generations of trying to survive and sometimes selling some dope is he only way to live yes not saying oh every you know let them go let them be free no i get it but like we have to look as human beings what led to this why is are homelessness at a at an all time high wire in this why are we in this huge drug use at you know going on why are kids still turning to gangs for that support for that financial stability why are we still no deal having sixteen year old drug dealers are fifty why is this happening i said i'd be where have we failed in one of the things that one of the 'em a volunteers that goes everywhere he lives in san diego 'em that's where i'll actually be relocating for this new job and so i was telling him about that he's like yeah i leave here i do this once a month end he's a white man older fifties had a camera he was like photographing and stuff like that and he says you know i'm i he would ask permission before taking pictures of the kids and stuff but he was like i'm doing this because we are the people that need to put it out there like we are the people that need to show the rest of americans that have no idea what's going on in just hear what's on the news what this is really like these children are as wonderful as happy as great as the are neighbors children they're they're not criminals their five year old their eight year old there even sixteen year old and they're not coming the mentality of like oh i wanna take advantage of the system 'em you know they're not they don't have that mentality in that trump has put that out there that that's what they're coming with but they're just coming because they wanna get away because they want to survive a lot of them said i'd be okay stan staying here and seek wanna i i i'm open to go to the united states but i'd be okay staying here in tijuana but big one is just a sport one is just a violent criminals marvin a row right now right now so they know that until they're like if i would say i'd be okay staying here if my country with safe i would have been fine there i don't i didn't wake up thinking or wanna go to america because everyone wants to fucking be here half of don't even wanna be here anymore 'cause that's happening we know where privilege we know we we have way more than other places but so they they're not coming with that mentality you know and so he the i asked the guy you know he's like i do this once a month all this stuff and i i told him i said well thank you so much for all the work that you're doing i used the word work and he corrected me not you know ruby or anything but he said i don't consider this work and i was just like oh well you know what i meant like you know and then he's like no i understand but here's the thing he's like i really have not like at first i volunteered because i felt oh i just kinda need something they do like he's like i'm not gonna lie i just thought i need something they do and i wanna get involved and work negative involved 'cause he was like i also voluntarily comb homeless shelters and stuff like that i'm assuming he's retired because he finally get a lotta time but we didn't go into that he said but now i just feel like it's my duty as a human being he's like as a christian as 'cause he was crazy and he's like as just the human being it's her duty to be here for each other to help each other out because when we go he said when me i'm neil man when he said that he's like when i go 'cause i'll go before you he's like but when we go what are we leaving behind and so this this what's going down right now it's something that has you know grew from generation and that's the damage that we've done we can again get into it in it'll probably go forever but america did this to guatemala they settled by the columbia he's just trying to well we have to have been in mexico and if we wanna go into the middle east we did iran's true did that end so were not taking responsibility and i hear this from some of the younger generations i'll get into conversation well they didn't do it is friday we're we didn't do it i can sit here and be like why didn't do it it was my ancestors so why should i give a shit but this is what they left us in so what sucks is they did this and now they're dead and then the word dealing with that but how are we gonna fix it what do we do to help i'm not saying that america should be responsible for you know making may he'd go go from a third world country to a you know to ideal like us or we don't like i'm not saying we have to go into what the money put all this money into them but we knew we need to figure out how were we need the help because if we can't afford them here if that's just that's true as they claim that we can't afford them here then we need to see how we can go in there and help how we can build you know communities for them in safety so that they don't have to come here but so that they can also go to bed at night and be okay and not wonder like will i be dead tomorrow you know in a lot of the families had the same same experiences experienced the same stories they're running from violence they were hungry you know they would girl she was twenty four she shared with me that she was 'em cannot cannot go into work one day kidnapped 'em she met a man a part of the kidnappers who shared with her that he was only a part of that because he was being threatened neither you roll with the so we kill your entire family but he helped her scape he got her phone told her how to get out and was like if they catch you you don't name me you didn't know me because i will be dead and so will my family but i'm helping you helped her scape she went back to her family went back to her home they knew where she lives they had been eyeballing her kind of thing and carter walking alone i don't know how they choose people that they're gonna cannot but they went back to her house her finally hit the hide her and they're like oh we know she's here blah blah blah and the family was like no she's not like we we haven't heard from her anything and then they told the family you have seventy two hours to get her back to us that pride of like we need her her because she got away from us so either you get her back to us or working on a common you all died and so the family got up and left it was her her two sisters her little brother 'em one of their daughters end of the mother and the grandmother no men in the home father left at a young age or whatever like there's just no father figure so it was all of them got there shouldn't laugh because they're all these women in one little brother i think he was like twelve or thirteen are being threatened that you're gonna die so you leave your house you leave the little bit that you have their cause she said we don't have much we were really pour 'em but you leave it and you go another family shared with me that they owned a little a little store like a little liquor store concession store 'em in they were taxing them the you know they were like we need you need a give us money or this properties arts and they're like we don't have anything to give you like we don't have anything 'em a couple that runs it gets watered murdered mother goes to store sees that they're dead grabs her nephew or sorry grandson takes off because that's all she could do it was her and her grandson end the parents of the grandson now the kid was like i dunno five six years old so he probably will be able to grow up with some stability if they can find that in maybe not remember that his parents were murdered but 'cause we were were birds were married and she said he's been asking me every night what am i gonna see mommy in bobby what am i gonna see mommy puppy in the lady shared with me she's like i still have the image i have nightmares my son was surrounded by blood and over the little counter where people go and pay with his wife and they murdered them and i know that it was because we didn't have any money to give that they're being extorted and they'd have money to pay we didn't have money and so you heard so many stories like this and i can't i can't imagine what what i tell people is like okay i won't there for twenty nine years and i have that's my life right i i continue to work out here so i could importantly number one obviously is my but my social circles out here and you know obviously i'm an adult so i could do it on my own but i i wanted that commodity you know that's something i miss i'm a social person mel's a dude i named my friends and my life so just a little background right imagine i had to be like hey you go canada grandma doubted like waiting right now let's say we go to the french canadians like they don't speak english they and we were leaving right now like there's no car there's no nothing will walk in that way we're gonna go away and leave everything you lovely everyone you can tell people when you're going only because they will come and ask i'm like sharing the story i i just give the minor details 'cause i i don't have the permission i haven't asked i want to ask i have family right now hiding here in the usa guy here in august same thing kidnapped they got away 'cause the newspaper got involved like media got involved and so they allowed and they were all while we found the movie here like no they were kidnapped and so they came they got politically silent because it was such a big deal in the part of where i'm from that they got the politico solemn fairly quick now they're like brain deportation and everything and it's like they can't work they can't do anything because they're on like house arrest and when i talked to them what you wanna do i hear like i want to be out here dude like i wanna go back to my town like all my my school my my work everything is there like a measure by choice like as great as america is this is in my home my home is over there will never be home for many of these people in the bible whole already killed just the judge that's what it is they're just they don't come here to take anything from anybody i you know i come from my mother wasn't immigrant my i didn't grow up with my biological dad but my stepdad losing immigrant 'em i knew the fear that first hand you know i i knew that my when my mom would drive was like put seatbelts on because i don't have a driver's license she passed and 'em died of citizenship but it took her years it took her years to do all of that and so you hear oh why don't they do it the right way in why don't are being a blower twenty nine years and i'm still not there speak the language you grew up hearing this is home for you and you went to school here yeah exactly i'm still not even halfway through the process and that's what i'm saying like i'm doing it the right way i pay taxes i started a business here i've watched college not long college i've done what is last of us still not good enough and i know there's more people out there doing much more way but why would say i like yeah but they deserve it i've not not need it you know i could see that but you hold us to such a high standard like we have to be the perfect person to fit the system in yet is like have this americans are exactly i got a few people like it's funny because like they know the amendments dino the bill of rights and they're like what what is that like oh so you were born twenty miles north of where i was but that makes you a better person like you i don't trust reborn in mexico i'm not complaining i'm proud to be mexican about living in america but you politics and prose california like oh you were born who are first resident why they don't know the history and they don't give a shit probably but it's my job to take the test you should know and i actually i have a friend who's a lawyer and he was saying that he took the questionnaire or whatever for the citizenship you know the tests but they have to take a just to be funny with a couple of friends and had them take it and give it to me to fail and she says that these immigrants as opposed the no end in english dropping the largest past two years ago when he taken a different language but my dad took it in english speaking with their mother did like how is this fair like oh definitely american native tongue like would you can only do things in english but that's a popular thing in here right now speaking as we speak english this year we speak america i had a lady i mean we speak american i don't think it's actually english ma'am i'm an educated women and i'm gonna continue to speak spanish up in this looking graduation because it might be sitting next to me and that's all she used to so that's the were speaking so turnaround before i give you some so i was at my cousins graduation and there is a older you know white couple sitting in front of us and i was talking to maybe i maybe i had just arrived from texas so we were talking in spanish 'cause it's like oh yeah yes so yellow through end the lady kept going like would turn around with a big old breathing and finally i just looked at her and i said this problem mom and she goes we stick american here and i was like it's actually see we speak english here but we no longer just speak english here because you need to catch up there so many of us that are bilingual and i was like an this is the best way that i could communicate with me aunt and my house just sitting there like me how i just like so this is which i'm gonna speak out so go ahead turnaround in whatever it is that you were doing on until the graduation stars and she just looked at me like how dare this little bitch telling me but i was like i'm sorry i'll sudden to my brothers about this growing up i remember seeing many i don't even know what the language so i wanna like disrespect anybody i don't remember seeing like asian billboards up now on the field like on the six ten icy like just in whatever language it is i think it's chinese but that isn't assumption and i'm like i don't remember that so it's like i'm not complaining i mean i mean there's so many languages here you see the pepsi commercial i think it was coke like they had the arabic english spanish italian portuguese french and it's like the sole of america angry we are yeah and so to me so for people to still have that mentality of like this is what i do maybe in the nineteen eighties predominantly rose english but now it's like i i would still say it's the number one language spoken but most people are now bilingual even if it's not spanish well there's people that their first and only language is english but even them their little kids are in preschools where they're teaching them spanish in mandarin drain spanish in chinese spanish and some other you know portuguese spanish in this those dual language preschools are on the rise elementary my nieces school from first a fifth grade you have the option of having your child in these dual language classes because they understand the importance of being bilingual these are people that are realizing my child is gonna make more money if they speak another language as the therapists is my offer that i got this job is twelve thousand more dollars a year then you're 'em monolingual english therapists and it just because they speak spanish masks and there's more to it on my own because i don't talk it every day but i got a huge offering comparison to the therapists that probably apply for the saint position would just one language i have that advantage and if i said i also sneak mandarin guess what probably would have been another ten because the fact that there's so many people here that speak other languages and so i'm sorry but if they can adjust to that then fuck then they're jealous they found another language i share the story about my dad my dad's very ballsy like me his english is i wanna say terrible but it's more terrible that it is good and we go out to dinner my daddy is like it has butchered english show i'll take my steak well done with the coke mashed potatoes and you know some weight as they look at his little funky like and i speak grade english i could order frame of mind that won't allow it hunters upright it's like there's only wailing and i you know i remember being young and something that like not say just white people people have just speak one language like you're learning secondly what is it a boat like this is hard like tell somebody learn spanish wasn't adult those like what the fuck like what if any why do you have to ars and that our that there's there are any i told my kid what you're doing is amazing even though and now he's very confident in his english i kill order but you know for my mom for himself and i'm a little scared scared out just a little shy to see that mentality that total mike keeps you don't need to learn english he's already been here for fucking thirty years he's doing great without it but just to be able to i going to learn the language because i to communicate might have better with some of my coworkers 'cause he same thing where he works at like predominantly caucasian i'd say about ninety five percent it's a hand job so when they go on strike she's out there on the front lines and then i do like you're very passionate about this is like a like this is my job my career this what we gotta do and you're not that bad of a guy yourselves like you love your family you don't burn whatsoever splurge on yourself like you drive a modest car like you give everything you're families like you're just like me and it's like exactly except i'm ground and you're not and that doesn't make me less person then you are i can't vote now i can do anything you can do you know i don't think i'm better than you i just think that were on the same page and me sharing my thoughts would you like the last great like you that's why you wanna learn english 'cause sometimes he couldn't get his message across yeah and now they they see him in the like what do you think about this caravan align like isn't that bad like they're all taking meco like no like the people running for the life like this is like as a mexican you know i'd love to help them out in any way can we you know my i guess here's what i love my grandmother living that's why i know so much about like the worst city in the world they're not a roar all these say attacks all that mexico's works there's more deaths per capita there's more that's per day then countries that war which is ridiculous and for people to just disregarded out as a language you know just like i don't need it or if they want it to their kids won't eat it burns along and it's just that mentality of like it's my way where we're gonna change ended infiltrating they're they're afraid they think about it and i'm sorry for these white folks listening but ain't got no culture they don't have anything in a lot of the things that they have for example country music look at the history start off with the african americans starting with the slaves 'em food southern food also starting with the black community they love mexican food they were my oh they don't have anything to their names but being white but having the higher you know hands for being white insult them as brown educated person comes or you get a black president and threatening to the little bit that they have and so that's what it is that's all it is it's a fear it's a fear of like i have it the easy way here you're here with me i've met a few older caucasian people like do my best not my business but my lines of work and i remember one time i don't i didn't mean to offend me but not in ticketed being offended but he told me like you should be great for brown man and i told him like how am i supposed to speak like you're mind how was i supposed to sound ages i took it like oh fuck now that's not what i meant domino i understand what you're saying but like do stereotyping say hey like make that assumption like he's gonna have a big accident he's not gonna you know speak the language and he was from the east coast north carolina and so he had that it's still south i guess it's considered so and so he had that accident that and he goes you don't have like a southern i've heard that i do have an accident in effort i don't i speak the language which will be spoken like i don't add anything to languish in i try not to just yeah i liked her whole theme park has banned wish that trickle 'cause i i i literally as you heard in this conversation i speak spanish sometimes i wanna say the word in spanish and it just comes out so like i mean glaze that'd be him it's crazy but great segway you were talking about that it'd be how did that start why did you start everything i will move that time i wanna hear the listeners due to a you said you're podcast hasn't really been about you so sure whatever you wanna show and i have i have come up by bringing about but i will have fun interview so i wanna below what do you think but just how did it start start so i'm a big believer favor of were here with a purpose i'm a big believer that as human beings we need to find a purpose or we should find some kind of purpose end voice 'em so i can answer with things that i feel this is my purpose i feel that 'em being therapists helping others is what i was put on this earth to do it's the thing that drives me it i'm passionate about helping others 'em in it's what makes me happy 'em but so when i was younger middle school i was a part of this thing called lincoln 'em and it was like eighth grade middle schoolers 'em being you know role models or leaders of middle school for the sixth and seventh graders in so 'em they kind of payments up like little says a big sister little you know little sister have you heard of that program burger so they came up with like sixth grader seventh graders an so it was more of like giving them guidance through like schooling and helping with tutoring and things like that but lincou became a more of a therapeutic thing like there was sixth graders or some greater sharing like stuff they were going through at home or we will be mediators when there was drama or like a fight or something like that and so that's where i started 'em in i knew like i just have almost it's in my blood i've i've had this like passion to help others i also think that being involved in school was sort of my escape from my childhood and all the hard times times and so i was in every club you could think of i was in dance team in 'em the water girl for the football team like i would you name it i was involved a leadership a renaissance s b the rally in me help you know being a part of all of that 'em and so it was my escape but it became my passion and became my passion i you know surrounded myself with other people that were into that on the leadership a teacher slash you know leader of renaissance at my high school became my mentor were still friends till the day she helped me my godfather who's also a teacher there 'em they helped me apply for college i've had a lot of great role models in helpers through my the high school journey 'em but i knew this is what i wanna do so but i did change i mentality a couple of times so when i went into school in undergrad i was angry had declared a sociology major with a minor in criminology so i wanted to get in to be you know criminal justice system in how you know with be those who are incarcerated because my stepfather was incarcerated for a little bit and then deported in so i was like okay you know like i had a passion and for that i went through be application system actually ferrelli shares in almost got to the very end 'em de academy and ended up talking to one of the 'em junior officers officers about he asked me why want it to be a cop and i said i don't wanna be like wait what you do and then i was like well i wanna be a call up but i'm being up i'm climbed to be a cop to get my foot in the door my ultimate goal is to be a criminal psychologists and to get in there and be the the support that these inmates need and so he's like a will you're wasting your time kind of gave me like i by the time you get through this process and the police academy you know you'll be done with fear bashers then you need a masters for to be a therapists in are systems so just stick to school like don't be a cop 'em and you just kinda talk me through the process would be how much time i would have to put you know being a cop and doing this until i can move up and all this stuff and so i had like the different idea of like why is doing it or thought oh i if i'm a cop i'll get my foot in the door and at the time my mom had cancer in so i was head of household and i'm like i could really use whatever it costs money in benefits fits they have from my family so then i said okay never mind 'em end so then you know i continued school got may quit school for a little bit 'em to take care of my mom and my family he went back after she passed got my bachelors and then just recently graduated with my master's in clinical psychology from pepperdine university and i got me about yours from dominguez hills 'em thank you so i went from sociology criminal i still have it ain't criminology 'em are criminal justice i pretty much could have been aimed sociology i think i just didn't declared or aspirin 'em transferred over in 'em got my vouchers in psychology and then just did clinical psychology at pepperdine's 'em but that's how i got into it i'm still finding my you know hook i i don't know if i so during my internship 'em i've been working with kids for years i was kind of like a behavioral therapy is on for a while i've been sorry i've been eight therapists i'm sorry like a behavioral therapists for this a company had been a nanny i've worked with two kids for a while so in my internship i told my mentor at pepper nine i don't wanna work with kids because i feel like i've already done so i wanna try something new and so i did my internship a first year and a half or so 'em west thee chronically mentally ill side got to see 'em bipolar schizophrenia schizophrenia 'em per person i disorders 'em addiction that has led to psychosis i got to see all of that first hand i was at a crisis center so everyone there were fifty one fifty eight on which is when the rams yet clinically insane or hold for 'em there they were either a danger to themselves or to others 'em i got to just kind of learn more about that and now be a job position i was offered i'll be working without a lot of the military community because it's in san diego 'em in for i'll be a bilingual therapists there so there will be some of the 'em immigrant community that are in like these shelters tours in homes in san diego 'em and i'll be working with families kids and individuals 'em saucy a lot of trauma in just kind of see where that goes out of fashion for all of it i used to be like i wanna be a couples therapy as an i still think i'm pretty good at them i thought like i'm the relationship advisor kind of thing with friends and stuff 'em but i i just have a passion for helping others that's it's where my advocacy comes from that's where this podcast came from that's where it all comes from because i feel i have an advantage as an educated lengthy not i have an advantage as they bilingual latina an i need to be that boys from my community in whatever in any way possible you know and so that's what drives that it's awesome to greater i wait till the podcast i wanna get there just yet i don't mean to like now i'm not saying share the stories of the people but i mean how is dealing with people you know could you hear the words they don't tell you all the time it is and then i had such a they go and tell you there was how does that affect you on a daytoday basis mental health alone has this huge stigma side hovers over at um you know going a little bit into like or a community of homeland is it a lot of them are have dealt with trauma a lot of them are mentally ill at least over seventy five percent of our homeless community is mentally ill end 'em a lot of them are addicks and you know some of the population of that now are people who don't have a home because of are high rents and stuff but a lot of them are you know at the very worst end so so even i didn't know mental health to the level that i know now 'em after working thing at this place and seeing being a part of them and really just getting a first hand experience made me realize like even how much more stigma is around them those with conical mental illness and i understand that there has been situations where someone with a comical mental illness will have eight manic episode and do something where they harmed a person or where they've done something to scare others i get that it's scary to walk and now they in you know you're i get it if i was walking in l a's in that area where it's all nonsense and i'm one woman by myself self i'm gonna be afraid you it's kind of you know natural to be like okay in mind danger i gotta be on the lookout but they're just also just humans and i think we forget that when with immigrants with homeless with those in poverty we forget that were all just humans in some of us have dealt with worse things we have worse history we have stories and trauma that unfortunately has led to some of that mental mental illness and so a lot of them had like never met their parents from one shelter tuesday see other vermont one foster home together i've had patients who have seen raping trauma since they were five you know and so they've been abused they've been neglected 'em in some they were just you're average teacher that suddenly you know started having symptoms of bipolar of schizophrenia and they're just trying to find the balance of their life again 'em chronicle mental to illnesses it's still very misunderstood even from these professionals we don't know there is no this is what causes schizophrenia there's there is no this is what causes and costs you know to you for you to be bipolar there's no one medicine that worked for every patient some of them will be like guinea pigs and they'll be like this is my fifth different medication and i'm still manic and i still hear voices and i still feel certain things and so being around them is is so i opening on how much a lot of them need us but that's stigmas to so big that they don't have enough help there's not enough centers we've had patients that okay so where i would intern it's a seventy two hour hold right seventy two hour hold and then they do what camp to help them to get them into a shelter if they're homeless or to get them into a rehab is there you know addicks or whatever it is but that a lot of them are waiting because even here in the united states there's not enough shelters there's not enough centers there's not enough rehabilitation places that have beds available so them they're waiting or then they get that you know as adults they have the right to their own you know whatever it is that they to some of them won't be like i just wanna leave so they'll go back to being homeless or you know you hear people all the time well if they would just take their medication they'll be fine some of them are homeless they can't afford the medication or they can't remember to go pick up the medication and that goes into are health system you know and so there's a trickle down economics yeah it's all of that it's really all of that in and everybody has a different story everybody has a different reason why they've ended up where they've ended up 'em i have eight family member very close to me that is at a hospital right now in so there's because there's been so much trauma in his life and so he fell into drugs he fell into all these things and now he's there and so it's just it's it's hard to understand each person's experience i guess you could say story and reason why their life has ended up this way and some of them are just addicks that could maybe be better if they would quit but they're also addicks that have dealt with trauma in poverty in so all they've known as mess for the past eight years are all they've known if you know whatever it is that they're addicted to so they all have different stories 'em but again just going back in town altogether i think we need to look look out for each other more as human beings 'em like you said all those centers were closed back then and that's part of the big reason why are homeless community is out of all time high so what do we gotta do now today's generation today's people we need to open more there's so many properties out there that are banned in i don't i don't know where we have to build them i dunno build the whole city do something but we need to find find a way to help and and you know take care of also what's going on here in the united states are homeless community is is at an all time high i was actually breeding that 'em in just two thousand and eight t to the from two thousand eighteen to two thousand nineteen in california are homeless population went up seventeen percent cruiser yes it's it's ridiculous and there's children out there and there's one families yes there's addicks in those with mental illness i've been there for years but if you drive through these days there's an entire like community on the sidewalk and their houses are these tents end yes some some of them choose to be out there some of them that's all they've known but we have to find a way to clean it up we have to find a way the gives them some kind of roof over their head because especially when the young ones that are out there children are only gonna fall into the same thing they're only gonna fall into the same drugs because that's all that's available you know that's all they know so i don't know what the answer is but there's more vacant house in the united states then there are homeless people that i've said it before we don't give them we don't need you own brand new house i get that but make affordable housing so that the people that are working living in now to get a better home and now suddenly these places are going to be rented the prices will drop now the homeless people i'm not saying doing fucking rent for ten years but okay six months rain get back on her feet come in we need that's a thriving society yeah there the cycle like some kind of system you know we will only healthy for six months you have six months to find a job you have six but i mean think about it oh that man could find a job if he really looked are you really gonna give a job to someone that's smells than his hairs all gross in his closest dirty know what did he tell you when you walk in i told my little brother this all the time is looking for a job now i'm like make sure you're nice and clean have you're residents ready walk and be like hominem my name is blah blah blah i'm here you know looking for a job can i leave you might resonate if a homeless person did that the person we look at them and go okay thank you call them you know oh they could find job they could find no they cannot because we are justice just mental as the next person and if somebody walks into you're business and really genuinely is asking for a job but they're dirty or they look a certain way you're not gonna give it to them and so we people have all these sponsor they could find a job they could figure it out they shouldn't have they shouldn't have had so many kids but really like you're not gonna give him a job you're not gonna help you know like it in the goes back to the whole compassion thing like you want them to do better but you won't help them be better like it's a terrible thing but like throw ball throw the ball ball game something some type of hope given hope just giving the whole like okay there's a better tomorrow yeah the job says he's now got fucking food for today job says valley's i mean they see freight hours 'cause i'm here at work not fucking standing on the side of the street pretty much begging for money 'cause you're yells at i talked to threaten like you can't give every single person every single time no matter how much you make how much you have not every single time had it boils down to women with homelessness i they say nobody wants to be homeless because even if you chose drugs whatever you choose the drugs being home yeah and then when you run out of money for rent that's when you go homeless but if you do you're who did they'd be doing it at home so i make it happen to you that's what i always tell people i've met businessmen the lost everything i talk about this mechanic then i met in the drug program he was like making a hundred k year hired some guy bad influence they started with coke they would drink like you know they have a couple of games every night federal coke got into met met over took his life loves his business lots of family lost his car's his boat everything everything he lost everything and i remember like oh this guy people opened up to me for some reason and he was telling me like like go back to that i'd be doing it because like two years i was still thriving in game two like party you know but he was but i can't because i know where it needs to like i've been homeless for like six months and i i just said wondering what the fuck do like i had a two story home but the pool and everything and now i'm only here like two weeks and that's when he said i need a stop this like and some people never get to that point like where i come down to four like when he went homeless you play a day i'll be back tomorrow and like oh totally a week and then you learn to adapt lets us humans do we survive bums too much later you're like this is cool dude like i don't worry about bills got nothing i just gotta get the next fix or there in so deep that that's all they know and like you said the children that's all they know i had a patient tell me you know he's lucky no construction worker made good money got succo went to math you know and it's now he was now hearing voices and but he still like in denial like i'm not an expert just do it sometimes then you know those kind of his mentality but i was just like well have have you thought of these sometimes 'em which he had just lost his job and all this stuff and so he had like a suicide attempt and that's how he ended up in there but he was like you know okay so you see you telling me you're not in anything you just do it sometimes and so i brought him like brochures and stuff and i was like you know he had so that'd be sometimes could become no time so you can get a job and go go back to you know the life that you had and then after a couple of days that he sitting there he finally only told me i don't think i even know how i would quit like it becomes so much a part of him and how he functions like he was like i don't know how i would quit i don't even know it's scary to to think of quitting because of what it's gonna do to their body what it's gonna do to them they don't know another life some of them don't know another life and you know what i mean if we gain life where you you talked to some of them and they'll be like this is what i know my grandfather was a gangster my dad's gangster gangster this is what i'm supposed to do this is the life i've known 'em you know if if you know suburb life if you know being rich and having a nice home that's what you know so yeah you're you might not foreign to the same things that the kid that lives in compton fell into because he didn't know your life you you know you didn't know his hers and so you know that saying like allow yourselves to even imagine you know what it's like walking in some of these people's shoes and what they've dealt wiz 'em what they've had to do to survive what they've dealt with just things they didn't ask for mental health nobody asked me skip the frantic approached nobody asked me depressing or you could fall you can you know build yourself up and fall out of that depression pushing you have been depressed i've known people that have been defense and i'm like oh he's in the depression is being but at the same time it's on the spectrum i know you have more but obviously know more about this but it's a spectrum some people are a little depressed somewhere lot some not on the spectrum at all and i was reading this study that he actually see the they see like a different world than we do because it's connected to your eyesight so what depression is somehow connected to eyesight so see the world like a little gloomier venue and i because and they say what just smile and that works for us people that don't have depression but for them it literally is like a part of their brain eating them up and you know i i've read about it 'cause i point in my life i want it to be like psychologist really in love with all that criminal psychologist with what the serial killers and that type of stuff so i mean listen to episode five would fill the end so i've into it party like like a hobby like okay i look i analyze the tendencies you know they can't just sending me stuff that i talked about on the podcast murdering animals as children how they grow up to be on just send me a link like two weeks ago saying i hate to check it out you know like the this is talking about and i was like i'm not an expert on this i will never claimed to be an expert rogers i read these things and my friend is florida is he makes a great case where there's like if you're sick you take a day off work right like you're like oh i can't come into work my my health is not right like why can't you do that what you're mental health like sometimes you have those daily like dude i cannot function beat a break a bad day at work whatever it doesn't matter what it is 'cause they don't care if you have a headache or you have the the stomach virus you're sick sick don't come in you're gonna affect everybody else yet mentally health mental health should be looked at the same way like dude i'm gonna be a bitch today i'm gonna be an asshole i'm gonna affect everybody in the wrong i'll take much wealthier i i i do i've done a couple like parent workshops in cycle educating young kids and stuff end 'em i say that all the time you know and i'll say it in spanish spanish to them because a lot of them are latino so i've been like 'em i volunteered and been hired first some to do 'em in spanish 'em but i'll tell the parents you know if you're harvard see the lakewood arslan he sent the gallows thumb on you you know you feel something's wrong you're gonna go the doctor if you fell right now you've got up and fell right now ain't broke her leg you're gonna go to the doctor because you have to take care of that so if something think is wrong emotionally if there's some kind of instability of there's something going on with your mental wellbeing you don't go to the doctor you keep pushing in thinking you're gonna get over it and some people do get over it some people do overcome postpartum depression on their own some people do overcome depression or anxiety on their on their own but some of them don't and they fall into this heavy heavy heavy heavy mental illness that is now part of their life and they've been living with so many years and then and then you hear oh so and so committed suicide why they only pepe hot but it but you can show again adjust to it and you can share it becomes led to this day whenever i start a conversation i in any like you know workshop or anything done i asked them give me a lesson movements on would you guys know about mental illness and then the the thing very calming you continue to hear boys get stone for people go oh how many of you have gone to see a therapist the handler like two three four starting to increase as the years have gone by but most latinos there will be like no 'em in alaska and white but could develop decided to start a local gave obviously had been sought the rules and i have an episode like that on my show guinea a hint that i did with the lady from spain that's like her main 'em a what she speaks about and stuff like how we care so much of what other people will say about us that we don't seek that how you know we don't go in we don't treat mental health or brain muscle as important as her heart in are leg in whatever it is that hurt any let females have a i'm going to the doctor with their physical wellbeing you know i have uncle they're like nope again but no my fucking mullen will be coming went on like a uncle but you been sick for like ten days like just get samantha biotics that shit and i'm not even gonna look at things like that so if we already have a hard time taking care of are physical wellbeing because because we can't afford to take a day off of work because we can't afford to leave her kids somewhere to go take care of itself there's no nobody's gonna make temper that mental health that's i i some of the you know just one of the things i said doesn't do do website to a podcast of this as a sick out therapy like i'm like little fucking in crazy low but i keep pushing it out something like i'm scared of like i self diagnose it just like a terrible thing to do and i'm like yeah all right so like i know i did this before i probably cope this way with that i did this because of that and i'm like i'm sketching no you know what is it called music and having a brain fart housing throughout a word that a welcome back to come to me as i'm speaking but so i'll just like i know i kind of have i check out every checklist you know for that so i'm like if i kind of i'm self aware that maybe i should just work on it that's what i've been working all right i'm being trying to be a better person be a better yeah but i'm like i should probably i'm i'm going to at some point you have to i have to i just need event sometimes i can't i can't share with the audience like oh this is what sometimes i think and then like what the fuck charlotte and i'm like no it's just some thought in my head it's not like i'm gonna act on him you know just like sometimes i dunno it's safe to say cut people told me you should show these things like like i go into like i wanna get my funeral i wonder who like if i were the two i think about that to myself and i'm i'm meeting that you're not supposed to like that's not normal mccall so i'm not mobile so maybe i should like i act on me feel me like i got i got i love my that i will never leave like the you know i won't do that to my parents same way but i just thought i wonder if i were to die who would missing for real who just like making instagram post like cause you to do the guy just fucking the legs so i'll be like all right i wonder who come to my 'cause i got friends out of state or whatever like who which ones where i go out of state for first of all i could afford it obviously you know i could go down there and then redone talking to people like i never had those sponsored by the get like what how do you think of a world without a lot of free time i see i think it's a good thing that needs to be thought of that needs to be talked about because you have to see life that way or at least that's my believe if i died today who would care not just who would care but what am i leaving for anybody who am i gonna lie affected his words like them i'm taking the not just a day off work but like okay like this sucks i'm gonna miss him let me go say goodbye i believe like and i don't mean to insult anybody i would say i don't believe in an afterlife or anything like that i don't believe like you know whatever may be whatever religion or but i'm like who would be like okay i'm gonna say a prayer for this guy could i have friends who are still very religious the last two episodes parts of yours were very christians and you know something that i to this day i feel like when somebody tells you i'll i'll pray for you i think one of the biggest things with like they think not to believe belittle their beliefs but i think they think that there's a higher power and for they're asking that hypo not something for themselves asking for some for somebody like me i'm like dude don't pray for me like like her parents were like the good people in there like not like i'll pray for you want everything is fair i'm half like that and so i i just kind of its we've just having a little discussion on one of the coach had some part of i'm going to many i can be and all of them but this is actually fuck we were just talking about like the theory of god out of god and so lately it's been caught coming up in me and my brother were decided by the last night he but i think it gives people that nice sense of relief you know like everything's gonna be alright like that's a bad thing i just don't happen to believe in it but if people can be better people because of it something they can look forward to finding that niche of like what is it that keeps you going in her mother ms face a lot of the immigrants that i met this weekend like i asked them that question how and what keeps you going and they would just be like thick thick and let's go says one of the thunder makoto not sickle cell anemia got in bed or secular school says when i send my heart and it's just i just have faith that times will be better i don't know how in i don't know win but i have faith that times they're gonna be better so if phase is what drives you fainted little drives her daughter's what drives here that that you're believe that things they're gonna be okay as long as she's buyer side or is it good for her exactly everyone has you know whatever driving them yeah and that's all you need to keep pushing in you back to mental help some people don't have that or they have a hard time finding now or there'll be depressed or have some mental illness and there'll be surrounded by the only people that love them but all they see is what they're dealing with their what their illness is it takes over you you know and so you know some people don't understand that some people would be like oh well himself he had children and everybody loved him and he had a perfect life it doesn't matter what life you have when with mental illness it it just is it's an illness it's another cancers and other disney that's another thing that when you hear someone has count all over to see the but when you hear someone schizophrenia scary it's like why don't don't especially with fan because you don't know when they'll have an episode here's somebody the present like man that is muslim people like i've not to me but i've heard people like that i know a clinically depressed you know they go therapy they do whatever and other people be like a man that's just attitude and i'm like it's not like we feel like we don't deal with it like i don't i don't think i'm depressed i just kinda gets it's a bad thing but don't think it's a bad thing i mean by some people concerned about i have a dark humor so we do like a like a couple of the group chats i mean it's all dark humor like wafa christmas moves you know what's on the picture of animals and people were like oh i did that in the group chat and they were like oh fuck like okay this is this is just it's like the live comedy yeah yeah that's what i talked about and one of the episodes would like anthony jetson nick like i can't tell people like hey listen to his show because it's very very dark he doesn't mean anything i hope he doesn't but neither i'm used to i'm like oh this is gold and i kind of did time i finished listen to it and i love he has but i was like i shouldn't tell people to 'cause my sense of humor in their own way but but country on that but i do wanna get into the podcast podcast anguish let's let's nice so yeah so i called him i can't do this was an idea dia since undergrad 'em i've always still try to figure out in i'm trying to figure out how i can be a voice in 'em help the latino community is it's all about educating them of what i mean by educating them and are you know learning about mental health psycho educating is really important you know for people see how they can help their children and their grandkids and 'em break that stigma and hopefully build better and more emotionally stable on generations so it wasn't an idea end 'em originally and maybe still some day i thought of wanting to opening up eight center 'em an tiling in canton unless i'm a huge fan of that but not just because i'm in front of him but that meaning of confident knows on is is such big thing within the latino community because an end it has a bad rap in a good rap so we're very excited as latinos most families are 'em you know they they love for each other but that also causes people to not speak up to not seek help because giveaways he let him do so he said on wednesday gimme cossio gimme customers on the forest okay you'll sleep us on the border so so and so you hear it a lot in are in are families in her community it's still significant and not not gonna get the best will not call equal whenever you susie tonight gifts looked at basalt not no kitten oak enamel skill set by and so accounting announces in it it's the here has to stay here in this home nobody's schnorr business is something that's um causing that stigma but also so that can be transferred over to teaching people that it's okay that were here for each other it's okay that i can't fix this anger unity of your family it's okay that you were there to love and support each other but it's also kato seek help a guy in demos guy in art community i guy anthony me the therapists thing you need you know art community in you end so 'em you that unity that we hold so strong within are latino community and transitioning into it's okay to seek help and it'll still be confident it's okay to seek help end still hold dear secrets are still hold what keeps you united as a family so that's kind of where the title came from 'em and i was like i wanna build the center i wanna you know open up a center where we have 'em you know therapy in group therapy in groups and chats about autism and how to do without when it when you have a child or he shows up in your family how to deal with the diction how to deal with certain things you know 'em end so it was all you know an idea of aid center which i do still hope to open sunday 'em but then the podcast idea came in as they used to channel so you know between friends like oh maybe you to channel that let's let's go watch or some kind of radio station dan and then 'em i'm kinda shy when it comes to the camera and so like there's no way i could do you to channel without rubbers and laughing in you know nothing about nothing left allowed us and so so then 'em podcast started to be a thing in so the idea would there but i didn't wanna do it alone and i think it's because i doubt myself sometimes my insecurities and i thought i couldn't do it alone so i had a co host don don marine she was wonderful but you know she is working on other things now so we just recently when are separate ways and i hope to continue this 'em i'm on it like i'm not it's not a i don't release in episode every week i don't release in episode every two weeks like sometimes it's only two episodes a month a last or two months ago we had like one episode that month but it's it's just a thing that i'm doing to hopefully be of always help educate me an just put it out there you know and be 'em something that can represent for the latino community 'em so yeah that's very touching back on what you said you know it gives to label noted 'cause that's one thing that people have told me i like you because you're you're mexican it's not a bad thing that you're mexican you know like and you're stories you're talking about this stuff i've gone through and so for you female young latina you speak the language the listeners like okay i mean it's not just first spanish speaking people like somebody that's only english which could still get it but you have that relator would not really relativity that where they can like okay i her story oh she's not afraid of talk about this and that opens up french here's what i mean because some people do think that little chicken as i say not little push you need a little kick imagine the mc you know what i am a little fucked up like i i'm waiting for a little push on what happened by music i gotta see some just just shoot the shit with the fucking therapists but that's why he later you're not that bad that tom i oh fuck off my shoulders yeah going back to what you said like we need to be talking about these issues we do have those sources podcast and everything that people would find it people will find you and it's good that you're so educated could you could you know like if i were to develop this is what i think this'll but this no you have fucking the griffin always talking about you got me boeing has ruled label what they're learning you know yeah and it was just you know gonna be eight show to cycle educate and do just mental health but i'm also very passionate and a big advocate for social issue so then at the end of every episode i do choose me leah in 'em we talk about anything and everything you know or i now talk about anything and everything but mostly would spend the conversation recession lately is a lot of the social issues and things are going on 'em so i try to do psycho education for the most part but sometimes we just talk about what's going on in our needs to be talked about and then i recently started on a special segments as a part of the show and i'm calling them tell my story and also just giving people the phone platform to come and tell their story and what they've dealt with his whether it's mental health or what whatever trauma or you know journey but they've been through if they're willing to share then just share because especially in our community and i'm sure many many other communities sometimes it's nice to hear the someone else's going through it to where that someone someone else has been there because it allows that little part of someone sharing is already enough to de stigmatize little and make the person feel oh mom loan i'm not alone because you do feel alone even though you hear a lot of people certain percent of america's depressed imprison of america's dealing with obesity zero percent of america's dealing with the diction you hear it but in the moment that you're going through you'd think you're the only person going through it you're like why me why is this happening to me why am i dealing with this and then that's how you connect with others in in just listening to a show or you know you're show whatever it is people come on here and share just listening to that someone's gonna connect to it one of your listeners may be just one or three four five are gonna connect to someone story and be like wow i've been to that too and that's how they dealt with the this is how i dealt with the end so it's just how you learn i'm gonna be okay there in connect or it's real good the the last episode i dropped on thursday right another podcast that he shared like you know he was out of low he wasn't working he had just got engaged so they're paying for waiting and you know just people i do like that some real shit head and said i opened up like that to be well know what we had met thirty minutes before we started recording i kind of like we just kinda and people were messaging like bo like that's a real less food like he is not afraid to talk about his struggles 'cause podcast this too purpose right like you were talking about purpose earlier this is his purpose now so he wants to share with people like it's gonna be okay at as were telling me like seeing him like i wanna share their story out of respect but their time like i told anybody but you know this is my situation and then hearing him talk like in retrospect you know this was eighteen months ago and this is where i'm now i'm working i'm doing this i'm married happily married on you know giving up before four am everyday like like like one person in particular was like i want to listen to each episode of his to see his journey 'cause i just need some help right now who's the most financial trouble that's on monday come and go you'll be all right like focus on you they'll make sure you okay like i'm here you need somebody to record i don't allow i've asked it like komi was like i'll sign like model now i'm not gonna talk about my guess you do 'cause people appreciate the struggle is one thing i see people appreciate district 'cause they were like okay like you keep fighting all right i respect the fuck i mean personally i when somebody tells me like this what i want somebody do and you're still here man keep pushing gonna be alright like you're pulling everybody wrong you're proving yourself right so keep pushing and like you said it's twelve people reach out to me and told me like that story was just so humbling because like i said wait if not i'm not alone alone i'm like you're not alone listen to this shit that's all people need to know that they're not alone and i tell everybody like if nobody loves he loves you i think i'm joking about not like i'm too much of a cow to lose a friend to suicide to lose a friend like that's all we need somebody talked to build like my numbers public i don't i don't hide from people like you finally talk we could just fucking shoot the shit we have bad days i pet bed disney just got home and you're like what's going on the whole world but you you're exhausted sometimes people and it feels like everything's on you like what am i doing wrong what what kind of change and i'm like i've been through it like just ten months or twelve months goes crazy to see myself now like i'm nor do i want to be but i do the same thing i'm gonna i'll i'll share my journey one time

people say show but that to me is just a word but i would love to be a part of course in 'em anyone anyone that would like to help obviously is is welcome to and i'll throw sure do the same thing that i did with the shoe drive you know set up a flyer on and put it out there in and thank you for you know suggesting for us to share in your platform to because that's that's all we need you know as a community we unite in and someone gives what they can if you can only give one thing that's okay you know in some people can get more but all of that put together will be just more than enough to take it out there and do it so that these people could have something it's not maybe much to all their worries that they have but it's something lifting off the fucking shows some beautiful thank you for coming on anything else you wanna get into a social barlow sober total wanna yeah you know that's it i mean i'm i'm i'm obviously just in this world doing my thing but a great drink you would i can i'm there this time apart caster in a writer oh look offered yes i writer 'em i you could find me at m k beautiful mind i think it's one underscore that i have in there with a k yeah hey underscore baltimore no it's k beautiful mind and then over gore we 'em but yeah i'm a writer 'em that's my therapy that's my self help just writing i re quotes andrew 'em poetry 'em but i did write a book 'em in that was part of my therapeutic process i have sat on the chair of eight therapists office because i'm a believer that in order for me to help others sitting at the chair in my office i have have sit there once you know to understand that so i've been to therapy myself 'em that'll probably be a way even longer story to tell so we won't get into it but you know my mother is just sees i became the guardian of three siblings that age twentythree three an that's how i dealt with all of my own mental health and my own 'em things that i was dealing with so i wrote a book it's more it's titled titled how i became the love of my life and it was just my process 'em after eight very difficult break up an losing my mom 'em to cancer in it's just the book that i wrote kind of fun into journal 'em and then self published at 'em i just finished my second book which is a poetry in quotes but i'm working with the artist whose 'em it's gonna be a lot of like colorful cultural latino art to go with these 'em pawns but yeah check on my page 'em by the book if you care to rename it it's it's it's self publish so what's the word i'm turning fine it's not it's not no rush so you know a my edited it myself with the help of others that read it and it's just something i put out there but yeah you could find me on a at cape beautiful mind and then obviously at canton and all 'em double underscore for deep podcast aunt that so self help parker but still it's been amazing it's been really fun it's just flowing you know the guy didn't even but just in case there's some listeners that didn't really get the message sours do this like words of wisdom even those new been way wise and he's giving great soundbites just so they have something you know ended up a lot of people isn't just to this i found a forum very popular on reddit and a so i plugged it as like just a the self help podcast segment like just listen to the last like fucking tillman if you don't listen to all of it some people don't have time for that and they like it like they're like this is pretty cool because it's like different people and some people electric up the first five minutes of warm speaking to the okay that's her you know so whatever you feel lecture on my words of wisdom so it was it's big reality check when my mother on what's dimes when my mother was diagnosed with cancer in dealing with cancer 'em any illness hits in the entire family whether it's addiction cancer their mental health it it's everyone it hits everybody in so i would tell people all the time my mom didn't just get cancer we got cancer and so it was something one of the most difficult things that i've dealt with in my life but also one of the things that i've dealt with in my life that have helped me grow and become a even better individual then i probably was five years ago you know i've always had the heart and the desire sorry to help others but it does something to you any changes do for the rest of your life 'em but one of the things that my mom and i would talk a lot as she was you know going through her chemo and all of that in one day after like what would she have done different if she could now that she knew she was dying 'em what would she have done different an she told me i wouldn't have worked to die and so in that conversation she said to me 'em don't work the die whatever it is that you end up doing i know you're gonna go back to school because you better she said i know you're gonna you know pursues you're career but make sure that you're doing what you really truly love and now you're allowing yourself to living that you're allowing yourself to unravel and to take care of you're you're own mental health in your own wellbeing that you're not just working to die she's like no slow zones latino solo skin look the most to we think oh i gotta work i gotta work we don't take vacation because i gotta work and i gotta make money but there is no way she said to me issues like there's always a way for you to find medical manassas but taking that time for yourselves and she said i would have lives a little more i would've i love dancing i love concert i love music and so that's what she told me i mean it was hard harder than maybe other people that have you know their husband or another person in the household pulled to help financially because she ended up being a single mom 'em and then married with myself that and then after he was deported back to a single mom but now for kids so it was her hard for her not to work to die but even she in that moment of the last days of her life was like i should've lives the little more and so that's how i love now i am trying my very very best to not work to try to find time to just enjoy even if it's just chit chatting with someone like we are right now in laughing and interacting with other spending time with my loved ones my friends i have amazing people also in my life who i appreciate so much 'em but that's my words of wisdom 'em you know make the best of life that you can sometimes it's hard because financials were not doing so well are we have other stressors but 'em hopefully fall into place in your life where you're doing what you love whatever is or you're finding a way to do what you love and spend time with those around you because were not all here forever and there's horrible things going on in the world as we have talked in disgust and there's so much more that we haven't talked about that is happening but just finding that 'em time to just take care of yourself self care an appreciate what you have and try to make the best of it my other little quote that i like to go by is never going to love go in search of life because level just surround you as you are just searching for what it is that drives you in this life and yeah that's what i got for everybody that's beautiful i'm gonna have a lot in the future like definitely so you know after san diego hold all that stuff

Let's start leveling up your marketing knowledge with your instructors. Neil patel and eric su alright marketing school listers have a special message from our sponsor.

And they have amazing tools and support for business to ensure that you grow and succeed. They are going to talk about if you really need to write two thousand word articles to rank high on google so couple of years ago. Our friend mutual friend. Brian deane back lingo. You actually released a couple of things. I think you did as well neil talking about. How usually the top result has a couple of thousand words are it could be two thousand and twenty five hundred words or whatever so a lot of seo started talking about it. Go ahead exactly i. It was more than a couple of years ago. I remember i sent you that. Graph surp- iq. This is like nine years ago. Mike golic four five six years ago. Some and up releasing an article with data showing that average page that ranked on page one. A google had somewhere around two thousand words. You know where that came from. I was reading something on wicked fire. And an i message you at the graph and the graph went to a blog post and then it just spread everywhere. I don't where that based on it but here's the thing in incense then everyone's been writing two thousand plus word articles because they believe. That's what you need to do to rank on page one of google but that's so wrong just because the average article may have two thousand plus words that ranks on page ago. It doesn't mean that you need two thousand words to rank high. And i'm gonna give you extreme case if you wanted to rank for how to tie tie person lands on. That article wants to read two thousand words on how to tie tie either. One is the animated that shows them how to tie a tie or video explaining how to tie a tie. Yeah i mean at the end of the day. You're just here to to solve a problem. So don't feel. I think it's don't try to apply the whole what is it. You don't want to fit a square into a round hole a square peg into a round hole. It just doesn't make any sense. And i think a lot of seo is what tends to happen is they take everything so literally and it's just. He applied to everything they read one tactic. They're looking for strategies and tactics and he just applied to everything. I think what's important more. So on the strategy side is to think about okay diagnose your business diagnose the problem that you're trying to solve. And what are the leverage points right again. What are you trying to solve them. Based on the problem you're trying to solve. What is the right tool. What's the right solution right there. So it doesn't make sense in a lot of cases to neal's plane maybe you make a video. Maybe a gift but it doesn't make sense to try to over extend that way in fact you're going to annoy a lot of people. I think the key thing should be optimizing for if you want to rank highly google consistently for the long term is to think about the user experience because that's what they're authorizing for it. Don't worry about keyword density dorrie worry. How many times you mentioned a specific keyword focus on. Hey does make article get the main point across solve the readers. Promise quickest part and let him know the solution with the least amount of confusion and if you can do that better than the competition where you do one hundred or a thousand words are ten thousand words. You're good to go. Yep so there's not much more to say on this. I mean just you know. Try to think through when you're doing something. Don't just listen to the advice. Kind of just take it literally near to us. The data shows that articles with that rank on page one on many cases of two thousand. It doesn't mean you need to write two thousand words. A lot of articles that rank on page one. That only have one hundred words or two three hundred words so figure out. What the best user experiences Provide that even.

Both right, which which is weird to me because he was born in Cuba and wouldn't it be pronounced Avila It's a good call. Your is are easing, Spanish? Yeah.

A Mashup: 5 Motivational Clips For Your Sunday

"The podcast. I don't know if you know this because I didn't until four seconds ago after three hundred days podcasts, leave the podcast on itunes, reboot them. So I'm going to be boots on my favorites, occasionally, we'll call we might have come up with a concept called day to ninety nine. And then this way could just say day to ninety nine. Podcast. The following episode is a mash up of some of Gary's best pieces of advice. These clips talk about challenging yourself living life to the fullest and tripling down on what you're good at enjoy. This piece of motivation on your Sunday. I can't do nine to five. It just not who I am. I be unhappy. And if I'm unhappy, then the whole thing's broken, I'll never forget the day. I started working fulltime in the liquor store is twenty two. And I remember saying to myself literally, literally the first day, I hate school my whole life. And I was like I walked into liquor store, and I never had to go to school. It was like crazy with the best day my life. I like just went in the cocoon, and I just worked every minute. I just can't Reeve. It's all I've ever known. You can make four dollars you can four trillion dollars. My big thing is don't complain. You're in control. I think about this in both ways you want more money more stuff work Morton, like like work, more only two groups of people. Listen to you, completing a the ones after your mom, right two or three closest relatives. And then being your other reference. I'm just fascinated by people's lack of patience 'cause like this long. I just really want to push patients in the long game. You're either playing for life or you're playing for few minutes ahead of you. I try to suffocate out bullshit and excuses, right? It's binary either you're in the right place or not. And so I think the thing that I'm trying to do is give people permission to do things that they want to be doing how you get insular. And know what you're doing for yourself for yourself. I just don't give a fuck what anybody thinks. And I mean, not my kids. Not my parents, not my wife now, I equally care so much of how they view me. And what they think of me, it's pulling from opposite directions. But you gotta start with yourself because when you're actually allowing other people to get in your role notable. These people are worried what their mom is gonna say they're worried what their girlfriends gonna say no worried what their their husbands gonna say. They're not doing things because the worried about being judged. How immensely all these years to not worry about what everybody thinks to not worry about what your mom. Thinks I always tell people karma is practical like do the right thing. It just gonna work out. This one thing that holds back so many I don't like pull this out of you. How do I how do I convince you it doesn't matter that that will work out that if they love you they're going to support you when you fail? If you do not the other way around that going for it and and trying to win and not being scared and not theory that loss because of others not yourself. That's the number one thing that holds people back. How can I get you believe that amount of times somebody comes up to me goes, oh, I had the bright idea before it happened. Bring what do you wanna cookie like like like like ideas are completely completely completely worthless? Unless you execute against those ideas, enjoy eating shit and dirt and bleeding and the grind. And don't give Faulk about what anybody else thinks why you haven't done it. Why are you doing that? Every second you spend thinking about. What somebody else has is taking away from time that you could create something for yourself. It is a lot easier to create document hustle DM biz Dev win when it's subject matter that you're interested in if you're getting into real estate, you're not interested in real estate for flipping homes. But that's what you heard the money was or you're starting to social media any, but you're doing it because that's where you think that money is. And it's not something you love you're gonna lose because you're not going to put in enough hours to win. Because you don't love it. Most of you were not doing what you wanna do with your life because you're worried about somebody else's opinion. You need to triple down put triple down on who you are. And what you know. And then you can win reason. I never changed. My tune is the reason I'm getting so many people to do things is because I don't waiver it's constant offense. I'm gonna pound you every day every day multiple times a day with the same bucket thing. It never changes if the same thing you're losing you're losing because your. Laying in your bed looking at somebody's fucking glamorous Photoshop picture of them, doing something cool, and you're envious, and you're jealous, and you're impatient. And it's crippling you're up sound just because you didn't trust fund just because you don't live in Silicon Valley. The market doesn't care if you're good enough to will win like you should not quit your jape day job. If you got crazy compounding interest on your student loans where you've got to pay your mortgage. But what you shouldn't do is have that job talk shit that you're going to build some big business one day and then at six o'clock at night, not work like you to go to sleep at three AM. I love what people say, Gary, it's easy for you. Now, you've a million followers plus on all these platforms greet, Rick. I had zero ten years ago asshole. I worked. So what should we do? Gary v foots wrap this up, which we do wish people do people should fucking stop complaining. Right. Peco should call. The fuck. They are good. Call people should not listen to America propaganda of fixing the shit. They suck out. They should be tripling down at what they're good at. They should be competent in certain areas. But you're not going to become beyond saying, or, you know, like your bone structure is a certain way like you're not going to solve everything you're I queued can get a little bit better. But don't worry about the incremental figure out what you fucking put you on fire, and you're halfway decent added. You're lucky enough right now to be listening, and you're good at what you like become tunnel. Fuck envision because there's way too many voices telling you what and how and here's the other thing. And this is the big one because he's a humongous audience. The biggest thing I've seen dividends from have the conversation with the person that's winning back. The reason most people who listening right now, we're not doing that. Ng is they're worried about the opinion of somebody usually mother their father. And the reality is is that your spouse may be the person holding back, and you have to have that conversation. We have to get to a place where doing you because the number one thing that scares the fuck out me's rat, and you're gonna sit there seventy-two and say I wish I wish I wish and whether it's money or spend more time with your family is a million ways to do this. Not everybody wants to buy the jets not everybody wants to smoke weed on the beach in Bahamas like everybody's got a different bucket being figure out what you're fucking thing is stop making fucking bullshit excuses who the president is your mom did this like like, I missed it had that idea for Uber. Then why don't you fuck do it? Dick. It's twenty seventeen. What do you think's coming next? Keep running keep hustling, you know, all the cliche, shape and most of all yourself out. Everybody's trying to make you fix all your shortcomings. Fuck. Your shortcomings tripled down your strength. When he want. Whatever it may be you need to reverse engineer. Your ambition. It's they do care about what other people think, you're right. If you just want to not have a war gauge and how to go on vacation for one week a year. You don't have to work twenty seven hours a day. If you want to buy the fucking jets as all you have to work thirty seven hours a day. Like, I just think everybody's lost perspective. So I'm trying to read wind back to just be grateful like rats it just gratitude like one life one at bat. One time. I don't wanna see that regret in my eyes that I see in so many, you know yourself. Deployed self-awareness. You're gonna have to start paying attention to what you do. Well, and start spending all your time on what you're good at instead of Malaya time on that Rabat, you want something fucking get it. But you need to fuck and make a decision today bringing it finally fucking each shit and do something about it six years in the making a whole lot of losing along the way, but learning my craft are you going to make pretend you're a business person because it feels nice or you're going to become a business person eating ship for decade and doing it for yourself is a good one for you. Just trying to you know, run my business being Rex I found with this my friends in Utah. Do you actually know what the fuck you're doing? Are you actually putting in the work? Do you really want to set bad or do you want to make it look like you want? It that bad. I challenge you, and I hope to see you. Thank you. You only get to live this life one time. Once you're only get to do at one time and one very smart thing. A lot of youngsters can do is go go ball into your at a nursing home one time and go hang out with people that are seventy eighty ninety like your grandparents like a great grandparents the number one thing they'll tell you is they regret the things they didn't do so try what are you waiting for just because somebody's going to make fun of you on your YouTube video you're not gonna care in three four five six years. But what you might have left on the table was the thing that would have changed your life. I carry my pocket every day. I carry a coin that just says memento Mori, which is Latin and means remember your death right on the back. There's a quote from Marcus Aurelius. He said you could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think this could be the last show, I'm on in my life. This could be the last city on my life. It's going to be the last book I ever, right? The thought of your mortality in death in non depressing way should shadow everything that you do because it's. The only way to make sure you do it right to it's incredible. Gratitude does everybody up our anger and fear when you've dominate you. You're trouble, and you can't be angry and grateful penalties antidote. It's the only have to really work being up and running out of fifteen ended up homeless at eighteen. My dad was abusive. And so I decided I would just live in a cabin by myself. If I look back on my life. I knew that at fifteen I should have been a statistic he want to end up somewhere. You have to know where you want to end up then you have to have a compass of knowing how to navigate no. You're three words you're going to die. Yeah. That should that should let you cut out bullshit that should let you decide how you're going to treat other people and let yourself be treated, and it should determine the quality of the work that you're going to dislike something bad happens say, here's something they see something. And they're like oh shit. I'm gonna live under the mindset of you're going to die like, yeah. You do have a fatal diagnosis from doctor. He just can't tell you it six months or sixty years. But yeah, we're definitely one hundred percent going to die and it could be tomorrow. So what are you going to do with that information? Nation. So for me, I say it's a month. I don't go back to being homeless for action. How for actually? I to Dr that gives me up drives. What does the market want you to do? Whether that's your parents or society versus what you wanna do. I think focus is everything saying no is so hard. But the truth is like we're surrounded by leeches bloodsuckers and vampires that wanna take take take and they don't get back during the say, no to all those distractions is the only way to get any real one thing doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing. And that is a compromise here. I live problem. I did everybody else wanted me to do for the first check your who's that? That was your parents. But the morals. Yeah, I agree. The a rear the piece of vice and make sure your parents watch this video you could always get a job. You can never go back to twenty one years old in kind of, you know, take that leap of faith. So like just just, you know plan here so young but like plan, but just do it, bro. Fuck that. I served somebody else or longtime emotionally mentally even try to reconcile being an artist an athlete that was because I was paying attention to with culture wanted for me. But that's all bullshit. There's only one thing. That's you do when you're supposed to be the world. That's just about happiness, brother. That's all. That matters is your happiness. Other people are going to tell you what they think you should do or what they would do if they were you. But they're not Hugo they're not you find what is your ship. What is it that you're going to your soul to like you? If you want to have one of the best life in the world, which is you live on your terms. We left the paying your dues to get their huddle we cherish. And who would we put on pedestal the people that from the get punted everything else, and when full pledge themselves be happy and execute on your thing. Don't justify your dreams execute on that.

And the the president brings these people together and they volunteer to go out there and they show up Mr Rivas is one of the small business owners that now now look at the end of the day. These guys are just like me and you we're sm- This is who the corona hoax was designed to put out of business forever. But it didn't. So. I've got a bunch of clips here. There's a from revised. Trump dotty was giving his guy two minutes he took twelve. It was funny because or a revised of president I two more sentences. Trump. That's great. Great. It fantastic presents you did. Good who's really good he was amazed president. His on the show he wants to show but but but but trump, let him keep talking. This is why trump is going to be reelected and this is what people don't get. This is what you're Dreyer's of the world will never understand you know why? Because they worked in newsrooms and they worked around Lib tarred media, types, their entire lives they don't understand me and you. They do not understand the busted knuckle guy in our chat room. That's the grease monkey dude with all due respect I don't mean. Hater not understand rusty induce Sonia. WHO SELLS PUMPS? Pumps they don't understand the guy that's tow truck driver. They don't understand that we get up every morning and we do what we do because partially because we love it number one and we do we do number number two. Because at some level, we are at least partially identified by our vocations by our work and that's fine. There's nothing wrong with that. You don't let it become. The entirety of who you are, but it's okay. And the Lib tards just don't get it. They don't understand. And they never will. But Donald. John Trump Manhattan does understand because as I said, one, hundred thousand times I don't care if Fred trump gave him a hundred million dollars and he only gave him a million by the by. But he gave. Get worth our whatever he gave him slums. Ghettos. It wouldn't have mattered. Donald John would turn it into what he did. And again, you don't become the president and CEO. Of trump international and have all these locations around the world and these hundreds of thousands. You don't think the media has dredged gone in a bottom of every person to never work for trump international and try to find someone that hates him. And Ask some dastardly Dick Dastardly story about trump being an ogre and A. Megalomaniac and this and that and the other they can't find him. You know why? Why did maybe his parents that have decent job of? Doing some of those values of work and respect for work in it. He truly admires these people that are small business. He's actually had to do it. I mean, he's been as were big bigger, but there were people that wanted to take trump down the Hilton or. The Hilton in the Marriott companies wanted to take trump international out he was competition. They failed. So when he gets the chance to meet. Or. Hey Leave asses? It's really going say it's it's a good thing that you couldn't put Joe Biden or Barack Hussein Obama, or Bill Clinton or any other STU just from the Democrat Party or let Dasha. Harris. This woman's a trainwreck shuffle show. Never be president can't. Be President. Couldn't put them into the situation because they totally would be out of place and people in that room would know it. But. You can put Don John Manhattan in that room. So here. I got about five cuts. I want to play for years twelve. I'm not gonNA play. The whole thing here's number one. deere's introduction or hey or you're gonNA love this guy by the by is an honor and a privilege to be talking to you to be part of the stable. My name is hot haridas. My wife and I. He was on. we own a small business in Tucson Siamese Mexican. Grill. has to be doing well. How's it doing? Doing, very good I. WanNa say that you're. So. Well for a little while now it's Good right. That's good tweet. Your treetop help tremendously. Before I can't do the backroom, my wife if I see it on the back, make sure that you tell the president that are respecting my love him. So my wife said that respected and she love you. Can't manufacture this for you can't make this subject can't make people say things like this is my point running for president back in two thousand sixteen I told my wife. Donald Trump. has what it takes to be the next president of the United States. I'm. Going to skip ahead, here. This is an Portent part of reverses little talk here he's GonNa say something here that pay very close attention to what he says and how he says it because many of you that are out there that are doing no Venus right now I think follow hyon Archbishop Vigo has one going on who are also doing this know that there are Latinos now. And I don't know the denomination of Mr Rivas here. But the fact that this is expressed publicly. And by the by. There's an eighteen second ovation. Eighteen seconds long. I timed it coming your way list. Many of them after I mentioned to them that I was going I had the privilege to come to meet with you. They say, make sure you tell the president not only that we respect them. We Love them will be voting for him by more than anything the president having small business and talking to hundreds and thousands of people. I that a ton of people are praying for you. Your. Teams. Thank you. And I know that many of these people are very humble people so and I think that God is leading the prayers. So you're in good hands. Thank you. Okay. So again at the Latino small business. Roundtable of the president and small business people from across the southwest mystery vase who was from Tucson Arizona the event is held in Las Vegas there have been his Latino business people there from Nevada from California from New Mexico and Arizona. I'm not finished here that was only. That was too. I got three I got four more. Now Note, did he send the small business people that it's important there, Frayne For the president. Gentleman I just have to say regardless of the nomination don't you take just a little bit of comfort in that in knowing that there are people out there that c glasses that are half full and not half empty. And actually think that asking God intercede for them with all of this strife and deceit and evil and violence is going on out there and that they actually believed that the president has their interests at heart and are willing to get on your knees and pray. Regardless Yeah but you know what he was in adulterer. Okay. So what? That's not how it works. Pray for, the President's conversion. That's my prayer and then he gets it right? But the fact that the that now look we`re We live in a world where we're told that idiosyncratic groups separated by razor of necessity or whatever their religion or whatever. That's all the rage here. This is a group here that. Did Not ask president trump is denomination was, but just said, we're praying for you I take great solace in net. Not, sanguine about the results here. Don't don't misunderstand but the fact that those people are out there and they're willing to put themselves out there because you know you go public for trump. They're gonNA come after you. There already went after Rivas by the by and he and his wife survived here. The next clip here is now listen to this. We're told that by Alexandria causing a little protests and not to below and all the rest of the usual lip tarred to Monica Drina chrome guzzling suspects. We're told that the only reason that immigrants come here to the United States is so they could become Democrat vote in our elections and suckle out the federal teat. They agree one of the pro game gave. ME. Really. Will listen to this immigrant story. Many immigrants like myself or many other people who their fathers parents grandparents came here a hundred, two hundred years ago. We'll came for here for for similar reasons for security for for safety. For. The opportunity to own our own business and the opportunity to raise their kids and our families in a safe stable environment. Brandon handle. That's why one of the reason why we support you and so many people support the people that I know they support. He goes well. But the real reason is that I tweet it out I said, they were giving him a hard time. I tweeted out. This is a great couple and I looked at him I said look at this couple and they were giving him a hard time and they were trying to boycott because this other side is very vicious. boydguards. So I said you know what? It's not very presidential but I'm GonNa do a tweet for Sammy and is beautiful. and. You never saw lines like this ever before. And that's the reason and I'll tell you you been even great and I appreciate i. hear the places doing fantastic. Mr President thank you very much and have a few more things. Trump on talking here. My My. My wife and I were blessed with three excellent young boy off boys three young men they're doing very well in college. And I feel that. Every kid. Has the need to be supported or to beloved in our four, five six years old help him in highschool cutting then get through college. We're like I say we've been blessed. Our kids are graduating from high school from college we donors and I think that. This is a story you're not supposed to hear of minorities. Everything is rotten America's sucks. We discriminate against these people. At me cages, Alexandra? Has. We make life miserable for these people. They don't accomplish anything unless the Democrats come along and give them a program. Yeah. Just loved this Rivas guys like my wife and I are blessed with three children we raised them. And have a small business. And they pray. I said you look close there still is that little under there's still is that goodness There is still good in America. It's still there. There's evil abundant but like Saint Paul says where evil exists. Grace. Abounds more. Later Church. Why are you based on your home or for this Guy i? Just love the way he talked with the breadth and. I just love the way that trump banners back and forth with them he goes like. The real reason is because I, gave him a tweet as restaurants doing really good now. I. said, that's not very presidential. It isn't.

Biden Under Pressure to Address Surge in Border Crossings

"One of the exciting arts about being in the uk is that we have tried and are trying an awful lot of the methods. Alcee frameworks incentive structures. That can be used to solve. These weapons are now at partners. The wsj.com slash roller. There's been a new wave of migrants coming across the southern. us border but what's behind the surge. Even before biden took office the pandemic and sort of the hit it took on the economy is in mexico and central america across latin. America created that incentive that we're talking about where people said. I kind of have nothing left. The economy's doing even worse. I'm going to migrate. We'll talk more about the factors involved in how the biden administration is responding and fed chair. Jerome powell and treasury secretary. Janet yellen testified. Today and markets responded. Less how women's college basketball is getting boxed out. It's tuesday march twenty third. I'm ameri for totally for the wall street journal. Here's what's news. A federal reserve chairman. Jerome powell told lawmakers today that he doesn't expect the one point nine trillion dollar stimulus package to lead to an increase in inflation as the economy reopened. Vaccine vaccination continues. There could be a surge in spending and there could be some bottle nixon economy. We see we see some of that. Now we might see some upward pressure on prices prices. Our best view is that these the effect on inflation will be neither particularly large nor persistent and part of the justice that we've been living in a world of strong disinflationary pressures around the world really for a quarter of a century and we don't think that One time Surge in spending leading to temporary price increases would disrupt at howell and treasury secretary.

Hr talent time benefits and payroll informed by data and designed for people senior white. House officials are visiting mexico and guatemala this week to talk with leaders there about how to curtail the new influx of migrants at the southern border in february alone. Us border patrol agents arrested about ninety seven thousand migrants crossing illegally the most since two thousand nineteen and there are record number of unaccompanied minors now. The biden administration is coming under increasing pressure to address the issue immigration reporter. Michelle hackman has been following the story and she joins me now. Hi michelle thanks for being here. Thanks for having me so a lot of issues to peel out here and michelle. You actually travel to the southern border and spoke to migrants about. Why they're choosing to cross. Now tell us more about what you learned and how much it has to do with a change in administration when you interview you know these people who are actually crossing in sort of making that journey to the border you hear a range of what i would call push factors first of all you know. There is a reason underlying for why people want to leave. And i i would say typically. That's a mix of reasons you know. People describe being extorted by gangs. That's a very common situation where you know the gang will either try to be recruiting your son targeting your family because the sun won't join the gang or you know let's say you're running a store and the gang comes in and says if you wanna keep running the store you have to pay a thousand dollars a month to us. You know things like that. A lot of other violence issues. The police sort of mistreating people. But then there's this undercurrent that everyone also expresses of you know also the economy's terrible. I lost my job. I can't farm. There's a drought. And i would say so. That's a constant underlying are and what you hear is when you ask. Why did you decide to come now. I think the really basic messages that people you know from the campaign and no from biden's demeanor that they think he sounds nicer than the last president. And maybe if they try now he will be nicer to them let them in and that is being reinforced by the fact that on the news. They're seeing and maybe on social media. They're seeing people that know coming from their country coming to the border and being let in particularly families unaccompanied kids and so that sort of has a call effect. And that's why you're seeing the numbers go up so dramatically and what about the rise and unaccompanied minors. Why are we seeing that number surge so significantly. The binded administration kept a trump administration policy. It's a public health. Emergency order the called title forty two for public health reasons. People who cross the border are not actually formally arrested and deported. They're just sort of literally turned around. Sent back to mexico. A court in november ruled that the trump administration couldn't keep applying that to children. Now that court case actually got reversed later. Once biden took office but he made the decision he said. I can't children you know it's it's immoral. It's it's too harsh on them. It's not really what america stands for you know. In many cases trump was putting these children alone on planes and sending them back to their home countries with little warning to the home country and so biden decided. We're not gonna do that. We're going to let the children's day you know. Ask for asylum as for other forms of protection. And as i said before that that creates call effect. You know if you see kids having success doing that. You're going to send your kid or maybe you're your apparent living here as an immigrant here without legal status. And you want your kid to come join you in. Now's the time and to that point. How has the coronavirus pandemic been impacting immigration right now even before biden took office the pandemic and sort of the hit it took on the economy is in in mexico in central america across latin. America created that incentive that. We're talking about people that kind of have nothing left the economy's doing even worse. I'm going to migrate. We saw that happening since even the late spring and the summer. The other big thing is that here you know. Our capacity is limited by the fact that a lot of places we're trying to do social distancing inside border patrol facilities inside government child shelters and so the system was backing up just because it was limited by forty to fifty percent and they've actually started bringing capacity back online sort of bringing children into shelters in particular. You know back at full capacity but then you run the risk of spreading covadonga michelle. What can you tell us about whether there's been re-migration whether people have come to the us and either because of the pandemic or other situations chosen to go back to their home countries and then decided to return. Yes so that title forty-two policy that i just described to you the one where you know if you cross the border and you get caught you're not sort of formally arrested you're of just turned around and i mean it's legally like you'd never were. They're basically so ironically. What has happened is you were seeing a lot. More single adults from mexico. Those tend to be your classic sort of economic migrants who are coming here not asking for asylum. They just want us sort of sneak across undetected. Hopefully go work somewhere. They've often her. There's a job available cleaning or on a farm and so since they're not sort of facing these formal consequences they are just able to try over and over to get into the united states in searcy people cross six or seven times in rapid succession. And we don't have a really good gauge on. How many of those people are getting through so michelle. You've talked about a lot of the challenges here and this comes at a time. When the biden administration is facing growing pressure from both sides to address this issue. Yeah i think that's right. You know you see a lot of republican saying that. The biden administration created this problem in part by river scene. Several trump administration policies particularly the one culture remain in mexico you know where asylum seekers were required to live in these mexican border cities rather dangerous ones for the duration of their asylum cases. You did see a drop in people crossing the border. While that program was in effect now the biden administration. I think that they are internally. Also realizing that this is a terrible situation that they're in they've sort of got to reverse it veto both for humanitarian reasons for the safety of children but also for their political agenda. But you do see them turning to mexico and saying we need you to step up your enforcement on your southern border catch people coming from central america before they even get close to us and they've also saturday they've sort of hinted that they're working on reinventing of the asylum system. Where you know right now. One of the pull factors of coming here. Is that if you make an asylum claim. Even if you're ultimately likely to lose your claim you know it takes four five six years for that to go through the system and you're allowed to work in the meantime so they believe that unless you get that down to a matter of weeks or months where you get fast no and then you have to leave that this is going to continue and so i think pretty soon. We'll see them. Making some drastic moves in that direction. Wall street journal immigration reporter. Michelle hackman michelle. Thanks so much for joining me today. Thank you and finally. It's march and college. Basketball tournaments are in full swing the infamous march madness logo is everywhere but that trademark one of the most powerful brands in sports is only used for the men's tournament in a recent report. The wall street journal found that the national collegiate athletic association had withheld use of the march madness brand from the women's basketball tournament when asked about it the nc double a. I said the women basketball leadership had chosen not to use it but then the ncwa reversed course to say. That was an accurate. This comes on the heels of recent posts that went viral on social media. Depicting different facilities and perks for the women's teams competing in the tournament. Our sports reporter. Louise radnofsky says the. Nc double a. is playing defense where now is also at a much bigger underlying causes of the despair. If the men's tournament has had for years access to one of the most powerful sports brands in the world and the women's tournament not only did not as the ncaa initially suggested decide. It didn't want to be part about brand but it had been excluded from that brand and that people now say they of course want to be part of something that powerful that they believe they deserve to be part of something that powerful and that the ncaa what is reviewing how it proceeds going forward with women's basketball may need to take a much deeper look and a much wider look then simply focusing on weight rooms which are perhaps the most tangible way people experienced it but not necessarily the biggest way they were in fact experiencing it earlier. This week the nc. Aa said it would work with stakeholders to quote determined the best way forward for women's basketball including the use of march madness logos in the future. And that's what's news for this tuesday afternoon. We'll be back tomorrow morning. If you like our show please rate and review us. Wherever you get your podcasts. I'm emory for totally for the wall street journal.

Tiny Leaps, Big Changes

302 - How to Monetize Anything

"In this episode, we are going to have a brief discussion on the states of the internet and how to monetize anything. I know this is going to be a pretty cool one. So listen up because this is tiny leaps, big changes, take change. While to another episode of tiny leaps, big changes, whereas share simple strategies you can use to get more out of your life. My name is Greg clueless. And in this episode we are talking about monetization and justly larger opportunity that exists because of advances in technology like the internet and future advances like virtual reality, augmented reality and just a bunch of cool stuff that's about to happen. And it's interesting because we obviously interact with these technologies every single day, but many of us don't realize the power they have to really change our lives. And that's largely what we're going to be discussing right now. So before that, if you haven't already find me on Instagram at Greg clueless semi DM, give me a follow. Let me know your thoughts on this topic. What are the things you care about that you wish you could monetize it? You wish you could create an extra income stream. Around or just turned into a full time business. Let me know on Instagram at Greg clueless. Now, let's jump into it. So the first place that I think we should start here on this discussion is just what the internet has done. It was this very small fledgling thing that people didn't think was going to stick around and what it's done since then in the twenty thirty. I believe around thirty years that it's been here is take in disrupt everything. It allowed companies like Amazon and Facebook and apple to become the largest brands in the world. Yes, apple was a major player in the computer era, and there were major player in just building the world that we live in, and that's partially why they're so big. But the internet, the development of the iphone, their ability to streamline access to the internet through the devices that we use is largely what has. Made them the biggest company in the world. I believe they were the first trillion dollar company. And so looking at this thing, it's hard to discount it at this point. It's hard to look at and say, Aw, that's not that big of a deal. But I find so many of us still do that. We don't really understand the power that it holds. At least my own family. Like I make the majority of my income on the internet actually make none of my income offline. All of my income comes from clients. I've met through the internet a business. I've built on the internet. This podcast runs because the internet is a thing. This amazing tool that we all have to reach people to get our voice out there to get a message in front of others has been. The foundation of political protests has been. The foundation of campaigns has been the foundation of major decisions that have changed the entire planet, both good and for bad. And so with that groundwork laid, we then need to look at how that affects also on a day-to-day basis because up until very recently, my mom, my dad, my sister, they didn't understand what it is. I did how it is that I Mabel to make an income without going into office every single day. And the reason they don't understand that is because. Because they were subconsciously, discounting the internet as a major player, not purposefully. They weren't looking in saying, oh, that's nonsense, but they just weren't aware of the potential until the same tool that allows me to be speaking to you right now allows me to connect to the potential client, organize a conversation between us, whether that happens on the phone or via webinar, or Email, or whatever it is organized conversation about my services, send them a link where they can pay for those services. Have that payment deposited into my account and then deliver all of those services all online all without ever leaving the computer and I can do that anywhere. There's a wifi or Ethernet connection. That's amazing. But what does means more broadly is that we can now because of this ability to communicate with others, we can monetize anything a weaken, make money for pretty much anything, and it's been done. There are knitting blogs out there, and I was used as example, because it's so fun. To me, there are knitting blogs and YouTube. End streamers and content creators that are amazing niggers or are amazing entertainers around knitting, and they're able to make a hundred thousand dollars a year. They're able to make three hundred thousand dollars a year. They're able to make forty five thousand dollars a year. Doesn't matter how much they're able to make all of their income doing this thing. That five years ago would have been absolutely absurd to consider. It would be absurd for somebody like ninja, arguably the most famous gamer in the world right now. It would be absurd for him to make the money he makes, which is it's estimated to be a lot is my point. It's absurd for someone. I came to be able to make all of that money playing video games. That is not a thing. Anyone anyone would have been able to even keep a straight face at four, five, six years ago. It just wasn't. But yet you have some of the wealthiest people in the world, some of the rich. New money out there coming from these spaces that typically could not have been done, and that's because of the internet. So whatever your thing is, whatever you're interested in, whatever you are passionate about, whatever you love, whatever you are, good at never discounted as something that you can make money from. And here's exactly how you do it. There is a simple three step process. This the same process ninja use this same process that knitting blog use the same process. I used the same process. Anyone who has ever made money online ever has ever used because this is the only process is the only way it works. Ready s- three simple steps. Three very, very basic steps that if followed will allow you to monetize anything, whether it be knitting, whether it be your cat blog, whether it be whatever it is. Step one be good enough skill matters ninja would not be as large as he is and make as much money as he was. If he was not legitimately good at the games that he played. Now, there's other factors, but he needed to be good in the first place. And this is this is no different than when Johnson Johnson launches a new product or when an agency comes up and they have a new product or when a social networking site comes up and they have a problem, this is no different being good enough just means having a good product, a product that is serving others. Now that product could be you playing this game and creating entertainment for the people watching. But that is still a product in the same way that toothpaste is a product and the same way that a jar of mayonnaise is a product, your sky. Gil, at the thing you do is a product, and so before you can worry about getting audience before he can worry about marketing before you can worry about sales before we can worry about anything before you should even consider making a dime on anything. You need to be good enough. Now, that doesn't mean the best in the world. That means good enough like literal words, good enough that that's going to be different for every industry, but you don't have to be amazing. You don't have to be perfect. You don't even have to be talented. You just have to be say it with me. Good enough. Just the first step being good enough, having good product step to build an audience. Now, this is obviously easier said than done. But in today's world with the power of the internet that we just spent five minutes qualifying you can do it, I did it. Was it easy? Absolutely. Not is something that took me a hell of a long time to get to the point where I figured it out. Absolutely. So possible. Oil. I'm a regular dude that was born in another country immigrated here, grew up upstate New York and like it's nothing special about me. I'm not that talented most things if not all things actually don't think I have any talents whatsoever. I still have an audience. So if you're good enough, you can build an audience. How do you do that? Right? Blog posts, create videos. Create a podcast, great, Instagram, share photos, create a community, start streaming on twitch. Whatever your thing is, there is a platform for a platform where people are looking for go to that platform and make that type of content. That's all you need to do. I started this podcast because I knew that this message was not being said in podcast format. I knew the people listening to podcast who wanted to hear the message, and I knew that I was good enough at podcasting that I could pull it off. That's the only reason. I would have done a blog if I was any good at blogging, but I'm not. I would've done video if I had the patience for video, but I don't. So I went with the podcast because I knew there was not their new. They're looking for this message and the message wasn't being represented in a new. I was good enough at it. So whatever your thing is, whatever your skill, your talent, your your passion, whatever it is, find the place where people are looking for it, go there, learn the platform, create that type of content that might be written. It might be audio. It might be video. It might be photos. It might be community might be events. It might be a slew of things, but find the thing they're looking for on the platform. They are on and create that stuff. Do that again and again, and again, and again and learned the marketing side and figure out how the platform works to get in front of people, and you will build an audience because you are good enough. This is why step one matters. If you're not good enough, you won't build an audience. No one will care. Most people will not care. But if you're good enough, some. People will care and those people become your audience. And then step number three, you are now good enough. You have a good product. You have an audience, you have people who are there for you were listening or paying attention who will show up. Now, you just need to do one of two things. You either sell a product or you partner with a brand. That's it. Now a product can can be in the form of merchandise can be in the form of an event. Can mean the form of a book can mean the form of a million and a half things. A product can be anything as long as it's something you own. Or you can partner with a brand. You can do affiliate marketing where you find your favorite companies. You get a special, Lincoln, any sales. You send them. You get a cut of it. You can do sponsorships where you find a brand. You really like. You tell them, hey, pay me this much. I'll do this much promo for you and it's not tied to a specific result. It's just getting in front of your brand, your audience. That's it. Those are the three steps, whatever it is this works for knitting. This works for cat blogs. This works for musicians, this works for artists. This works for on preneurs. This works for writers. This works for Joe blow who wants to do tech reviews, who who just wants to watch anime and reviewed all day, which sounds like an absolute dream who just wants to produce beats. It's the same process. Be good enough. Meaning have good product, build an audience, meaning go to where people are in create content for them. And then sell a product or partner with the brand, create a thing that could be a t shirt or partner with the brand that could be Nike that could be the local coffee shop. There's a lot of ways to to create that partnership doesn't have to be with major brands, but that's that's a simple three step process for so for any of you who have a thing you're into who are fascinated by something and wanna figure it out and how learned turn it into a side income or turned into a business or whatever it is. This is the process. This is how it works. It's very, very straightforward. It's not easy at all. It is hard as hell, but it's very straightforward. And if you just do those three things, you're, you're going to do fine. You're gonna do perfectly fine and all this is possible because of the internet. So never discount what it is you're into. There is a way to monetize it. I just laid it out and if you are into something and you want to start monetize, it just follow those steps. That's all it takes. So.

In the wealth management judgment industry may be searching for valuable content to tune into after months of rumors. Day has finally arrived. Maryland made republic the details around an enhanced client transition program or CTP taken at face value. It's an honest attempt. By Merrill. To Acknowledge Knowledge the attrition they've experienced especially amongst elite advisers. And a way of making their retiring advisor program more competitive that Said said there are risks attached to it and discussing them. Is the purpose of this episode in almost every episode recorded since our inception. We've talked up to about what's fueling the migration toward independence. The answer lies in pulls and pushes the Poles being desire for greater freedom and control and to be all in on custom building business with staying power and real equity value. It's the pushes though. I want to focus on today shortly sorely for a long time. Now wirehouse advisors have complained about increasing bureaucracy and the battle for control between them and the firms for who they work. It's it's no secret that the big firms are working hard to tie as many advisors up as possible and the advisers worry that the firms will own them and their clients in perpetuity turning advisors into private bankers with little control over how clients are served so Merrill's announcement about an enhanced. CTP following similar actions in the past twelve months by UBS and Morgan Stanley to beef up their retirement place programs is a veiled attempt to further bind advisors to the firm to be fair the details around the enhancement as I understand it can be compelling for senior adviser visor who has every intention of retiring from Merrill through CTP because the program will now pay him more to do what he was going to do anyway. But it's the next Gen advisors teams and clients that are most at risk because the quid pro quo of better retirement economics. For Senior advisors answers comes attached to a seven to nine year commitment to the firm for the next Gen team or adviser inheritors along with strict non solicit lissette provision thus limiting optionality for the inheriting advisors. And so what. Why should you care? Because eliminating optionality optionality will have the greatest impact on the value of an adviser business unwittingly sell clients to your firm in further. Shift the balance of power away. Okay from the advisers. I was lucky enough to get some time at Schwab. Impact an event that gathers five thousand advisers into thought leaders from around the country. Three to have a conversation about the topic with Vince for Tita. Please forgive the noise. This was recorded. Live from the floor of the show. Vince has a unique nick. Perspective on Merrill's announcement. He spent twenty two years in leadership roles at the firm and earlier. This year joined the breakaway movement. As president of sanctuary wealth we discussed the risks of an enhanced. CTP and what might be behind the firm's motives enrolling it out so let's get to it. I'm Mindy Diamond and I'm here at the San Diego. GEICO Convention Center at Schwab's Impact Conference two thousand nineteen and I'm joined by Vince for TITA president of sanctuary wealth. And we're talking today about an upcoming much expected announcement out of Merrill Lynch. Yeah thank you. I spent twenty two years great years really at ATM. Merrill Lynch and excited to be the president of sanctuary well and you know we help advisors whether they come from Merrill Lynch or other wire houses or banks start their around company and find their independence and so this has been a fabulous conference that I'm super impressed with the professionalism and the quality of the technology and just the people here since trust a little bit about your background I spent about twenty seven years in the industry or in the wirehouse world in general but tell us specifically about your time at Merrill Lynch. Yeah well as I said. Twenty two great years. At Merrill Lynch was a financial advisor climbed the ranks of leadership and was a divisional executive toward the end of my career. There were six of us sort of responsible for running the country. I had the middle part of the country kind of from Texas to Wyoming and Saint Louis to Phoenix and it was twenty two hundred grade advisors in enjoyed my time there but then I also wore a different hat where I was market president for Bank of America in San Antonio and as market president event you really the enterprise leader in community trying to help bring the lines of business together for that company and interact with community so a lot of perspective what we've been and telling advisers. Is that as long as you are. Certain that Merrill Lynch or any firm that you work for is the place that you want to spend the rest of your career to to retire then for Merrill Lynch to come in and give you more money in sent you integrator away to do what you were going to do anyway is a homerun wherein lies. What's the problem well? I think you need to know what you're signing right so we don't have the details out but we've seen it with other firms and how they've done it in really the CTP his client transition program and the idea is how to transition the clients to the bank or to the organization whichever company it is. It shouldn't shouldn't be misconstrued as how do I transition my clients to the next adviser. It's really about institutionalizing. The clients and helping them to be part of the company company for the long term. So that's an interesting perspective because as we sit here at Schwab's conference a conference it's all about enabling independence and were watching coaching more and more advisors breaking away from the wirehouse world and going independent. I think we're looking at largely is battle of control between adviser and firm. It's a battle that the advisers continuously think that they are losing the more. They think they're losing it the more they want to leave and a program like an enhanced. CTP which will likely come with greater handcuffs ways of tying advisors up or things that will really make it difficult for or advisors to leave down the road so talk us a little bit about that the advisers that we speak with a lot who are interested in starting their own business or thinking about true ownership. You know the industry's evolved right. They were real entrepreneurs twenty years ago and over time they become more and more employees of large organizations positions and if for those that are interested in starting their own business owning something. You go independent. If you're fine being an employee of a big organization in that serves your clients well does a good job in the community. Then that's for some people it's not for everyone. Well I guess that's the point so certainly not everybody is looking to go independent. And we're not here to make a commercial about going independent but even if an adviser had intentions maintaining optionality the intention or curiosity acidy or possibility that they were going to leave at some point to go anywhere even if it was across the street to another wirehouse what to signing onto enhance program. Possibly we do for that the language would be something you would really want to study and get some advice. Maybe call someone like Mindy to go through it or myself but the reality is probably GonNa tie what you consider to be your clients closer to the company that you work for so you may think I'm going to retire in five or six years so it. It doesn't really matter to me. I'm going to take the extra money that they're going to give me and go ahead and sign this document but it might matter to your team right because now you've signed something that's basically saying. These clients do belong to the company. Most of these companies already feel like they do but they don't have language that strong enough to really hold hold the clients. They're these types of programs typically have stronger language which will tie the clients and your team longer term which within really eliminate the option of leaving. That's the point is not. It's it may be good in fact for a senior adviser or soon into be retiring advisor. The problem it really creates is the optionality for the next generation and what. We're seeing that people I think we're hearing for most are the younger generation. Who is saying? Oh my God. I'm terrified of the senior partner in my team signing onto this and taking away my optionality ability so what are the options. What can a team right now? Who is likely in the next day week month to be faced with be given this this agreement this opportunity with likely a shot clock attached to it? What should they be doing? I think the key is for them to slow down. Read the the document get some advice on what they're really signing up for what's the impact to them. What's the impact of their clients with the impact to their team? Longer term understand stand. What the financial commitment that their team members might be making typically what happens is a senior advisor retires and they in their mind? They're selling their book to the next generation. But I would argue that. What they're really doing is while the next generation is supplementing the acquisition? They're selling their book to their company company. And so if you're the junior adviser in that situation you're paying for it over a period of four five six years but at the end of it you don't own anything and that is the phenomenon. I think that most visors worry about. Is this move toward a salary. Bonus model where advisors go from being free will or ATWILL employees to being salaried private bankers as Vince Sheridan. Our conversation based on his knowledge of Bank of America's intentions wanted enhanced retirement program is being rolled out as a benefit to advisers visors the biggest concern for them is unwittingly selling their clients to the firm and losing more and more control over time.
