Do I Need To Lower My Prices?
"So gary in cuny wednesday if his prices are too high does needs a lower his prices for his e commerce store for his Designer cap business whenever we have questions like this in our business one of the things that really shines a light and gives. You clarity is data information. You need to gather hard numbers so that you can make a real informed decision on whether you should lower. Prices are not the first thing i want to point out. Is that Gary says that he had some sales and then things slowed down so he's not sure if they've slowed down because people just don't wanna pay for his caps at the price. He sells a four so the first hard number. We're going to look at is look at your website traffic. You should be tracking. The number of visitors are coming through website on a daily basis You could do this for free with google analytics. You subscribe to this podcast. You can search for several episodes that i Go through in detail how to use google analytics just search google analytics on one hundred on show both google analytics. You can take a look at how much traffic are getting to your website when sales were good a traffic light. And what about now if you have a less now. It's not a price problem. It's a marketing problem. You don't have enough people going to your store. You don't have enough people walking by and looking at your product and it's very common to see less sales when you have less traffic. This is why people trying to get more and more people to the website. They do facebook marketing. They do content marketing. They try to get people to know about their brands. They visit their website because they know more visitors equals more sales. So this is the first number you have to look at because this will tell you. Hey wait a minute. Maybe my prices are fine. But i need to increase my traffic. I need to get my customers at my sore. So what experiment. You could do is run some marketing campaigns whether it's content marketing with some blog posts whether it's through social media marketing whether it's paid marketing through facebook instagram ads. Whatever it is. Get the traffic that you used to get when sales were higher and see if the sales match see if you get more sales with that traffic now of course all traffic is not created equal. You want to try to target the right people that would love your product so this is really important when you're thinking about how to market market to the people that would most likely by so if you run that experiment you can run that for a few weeks you could see okay. Sales are picking up it because more people are coming so it's a marketing issue. It's not a price issue number two and these are any particular order but you really need to look at your numbers. Your profit margins. Some of us. We think that needs a lower prices but especially when you're in retail. That may not be an option okay. You need to make sure that you're making a healthy profit margins. You can't lower your prices if you're not gonna make a profit or reasonable profit to make your business worth it. I know this. Because i used to run my own. E commerce store over a decade ago. I used to run a clothing line. And i knew my margins. I knew i could lower certain items past the point because then it's going to be breaking even though not making any money so for example if you sell a cap for thirty dollars but a cost you fifteen to create in ship and deliver to your customer total cost. You really can't discount much. Maybe you can go down to twenty five but then you're really getting because there are other costs right. You have your only time. You have your website costs inventory and stocking cost all these running costs that run your business. This is why the numbers are so important. You need to know how much your business is costing you. This is why a lot of e commerce businesses get in trouble with their finances or with the financing of the business or the numbers of the business. Because it's not like they're selling one product of the same price they can just say here is the total cost less. Divide that number by the number of products. I have and this is the price of should be so i can be profitable. Every product has a different price. Every product has a different profit margin. So this is why your margins have to be pretty fat to cover any Discrepancies and make sure that when you sell your product you're giving back to your company to pay for expenses and then some. I'm very cautious about discounts. I do not recommend people to make major discounts or major sales where it cuts into their margins especially in retail. But if you do want discount you have to encourage people to spend more. Those are the best ways to run sales or promotions. Where you say you know you get fifteen percent off when you spend one hundred dollars or more. This encouraged at least the customer to buy more product and i know in retail. This is so important. You wanna get things off your shelf because it actually costs you money to have an inventory. Another way to do this is to have some sort of reward program where they can get a voucher for every x amount of dollars they spend at your source of they spend two hundred fifty dollars to get you know a twenty dollars gift certificate again getting them to come back to the sort and use certificate on a purchase so you gotta make sure that it makes sense for you to even changer
Fault Tolerant Distributed Gradient Descent
"Hello my name is native. And i'm a computer scientist. Gay as opposed to grow researcher at ebay university switzerland. I work on distributed computations. Specifically i work on. Algorithms concerning distribution optimization disrupted consensus and distributed collaborations systems soi robotics and online voting and in this particular eighty of research. I mainly focus on darwin's by indeed for owners many avi considered networks. There's some of the notes in the networks are militias adversarial or they're just forty. And how does this affect the oral fixation off the elegant now. This is something that's interesting to me in my engineering part of the brain working for big company. I'd say well we can control all of our nodes about some rogue employees or something. But i guess outside of a company the world really runs on bigger systems. How common are these sort of peer to peer distributed problems in people's everyday lives definitely. I made for example. Just consider our current situation which is the ongoing pandemic. Let's see your these. Scooby trackers right you have these scored trackers on your phones than you. Are gary these records with the sword these strikers in vancouver you go in close proximity to someone else that say who might annette it or who might in recent history being tested positive so this gives you a notification. Hey you know you gaming on equity this person and he was the best positive so you may want to take some precautions. Analysts say based on these kind of trackers companies and government started building policies. Just imagine how difficult it would be if someone starts messing around for example. Let's say be Falsely claimed themselves as high-risk saying that. I just hires Ever i'm a Is also is that would discreet Rice appear to be systems are already there used is just a v are naively ignoring the fact that some of the notes in the systems be malicious authority. Fonte just like internet. You have millions of notes on the net not everything. Not everything is on the cloud on server controlled by big or big komen administration. They are so many of these notes that are spreading misinformation they have destroying to disrupt the internet for example you might have heard of. Thanks like jamming attacks Jammed the settlers despite sandy query. So you know these kinds of notes vais fairly common in our everyday use in suggests we get to hear them band. There's a big disaster. Or there's an actual big down of these systems when i started learning about distributed computing and of course it was called big data at the time. One of the first examples is term frequencies so in a lot of documents you the percentage of times you see something that often gets labeled as embarrassingly parallel because you just want to frequency. You need the numerator divided by the denominator and it's easy to divide that problem up and rejoin it but not. Every problem is so embarrassingly easy to solve. What about your specific research into gradient descent. What makes that one hard to do in a distributed fashion. You had distributed Any one this networks to be useful to the specific problem. Let's say that you are trying to solve for example as you just mentioned either. You're trying to get the frequency of a border from documents spent on the internet or let's take a step forward but apps you are trying to build some kind of image classified so different notes on the have different data sets. Let's say images of their dogs. And you want to use these images of dogs neck so many images of those who could be a very strong image classic fire for dogs something that would dismantle the human ability declassified at all so you wanna less this complicated Now designing image classified using all these distribution data said on the internet different notes having different data points. It's quite complicated even when you have all the data points at one body a machine. It's a headline. more of the. The sets are divided in different machines so to ensure that comes like these like machine learning run smoothly when certain nodes in the network militias spinal challenging not descending. It's very interesting to study. How these types can be done. Smoothly on gedeon descent is specific That is by far the was algorithm used from sheet lending pieces and what happens ingredient descent. Is you have these different. Data sets distributed on different notes. Therefore defend nodes have different loss functions. Now what we are trying to do now in this district. Setting is minimized the aggregate of all these functions are loss functions. Now when you're doing this by nature the most commonly use angry gradients design. Because it's naturally distributed many obligingly send it just reduces at the gradients of loss functions in each round. Or so if you're learning and gordon to when you're adding these gradients together some notes are not going to provide you ladies of los angeles. They may be forty. May be broadway. You re totally incorrect. Greediest maybe designed maliciously innovate to move you. words solution. that famous day goes data points. They may favor. Let's say dogs of a burglary or some other panels notions. Maybe they want to completely rendered the classification problem useless. They want to maybe instead of dog. Trained you the classify so as you can see ensuring that is reputed gradient descent runs smoothly at least within some reasonable dominates in residents of such Notes is of practically at this point vendor. You have all this The algorithms training using data sets coming from all sorts of people on it.

"My kid played them or something like that. I mean it was. It's totally ridiculous. New story go. Nigel right to baseball. Mr tony it appears as if the san diego padres making a play to be the team to beat. In next year's baseball season they made trades for blake. Baloch as now and you darvish to fortify starting rotation of course already have guys like machado on that squad so yes some very very aggressive moves by them by the way you'd asked me before the show who the owner was their only peter seidler. Who is the grandson of walter. O'malley the nephew. Peter o'malley and in just november eighteenth of this year major league baseball approve the transfer of the role of chairman from one. Blow to seidler. Who now is the largest stakeholder in the team. Well i guess he's got a lot of money because they've spent a lot of money they spend a lot of money on machado. They're going to have to spend a lot of money on tateishi junior. They're going to blake. Snell is going to cost them. Money darvish cost them a lot of money. They're suddenly very very good. It's like almost scary. Good mike clovinger they traded for. He's out with tommy john but he will be back at some point. They're really good. I mean you look you know. We all sort of look at the nansen. That's made a very nice trade to get josh bell. But this is a big impact thing for san diego. What do you. What do you make of this gary. I think based on what we saw here a few years ago. You put enough good pitchers out there and you give yourself a chance so that appears to be what they're doing darvish is getting up there in age isn't he. I don't think i wouldn't have guess he's more than thirty. I wouldn't. I don't know i don't know look it up on. This report is thirty small older night thought. But he's a cy. Young quality pitcher blake. Sales already won. The cy young blake smelt leaks. Now may have won the world series if they left him out there. Yeah i guess he. Do you think that tampa bay has no money. They they really operate on no money. Do you think that he went to them and said look. I can't play for this guy anymore. Just get here. it's okay. Send me wherever you. But this is what i love about. The race is that they do something like this. They unload the guy with the big and then they get sneaky good by young talented players and so you know an eye intimidated by the padres. Now yes but i kind of love to see the race do this again with their low budget. The rays are smarter than other teams precisely about what you're saying that they unload guys that you think you can't live without. And they're always in the mix there in the mix with the red sox and the yankees who have more money than anybody and they have no money. They're always they're they're really they're really well. Run mart. well-run what else will you mentioned the trade for josh bell by your washington national. What does that mean for ryan. Zimmerman zimmerman opted out of the season this year but he said that he would like to return to the nats. Four four sixteen big league season next year risen migra. The general manager said the acquisition of bell isn't going to prohibit us from looking for good right handed hitter. The comes off the bench of plays multiple. We still haven't ruled out a zim reunion. Would you like to see ryan's amendment back on this squad is josh kelley's a right handed hitter right. He's a right handed hitter. Which is why why originally about how. He's a switch back a switch hitter. I i'd like to zimmerman is willing to play for. Probably a million two million dollars. He's not going to cost a lot of money. I assume he's a pretty good clubhouse because you never heard anybody say get this guy out of here and he's been there fifteen years. I would think that that would be an gene. Would that be an attractive person to keep on the team if you could get and also you know. This trade relief reminds me of the atom eaton giolito trade. You know it seems very comparable that this young talented pitcher. This could backfire on the naps. The these guys could win the cy young in five years but but for for winning next season i really liked this trade. Zimmerman's going anywhere else. I mean just just like your doctorate you give him some meaning he can do a year in honorarium or something will come for some minimum amount. And and he's a good guy to have around. I mean if if if he wants to be here. I feel like they got it. They should find the money to get him here. I just i would. I would take exception with with calling it a reunion. Which i think is what mike did because theoretically while he wasn't on the team he's still in that last year he just stopped it out. I would say that when you've lost howie kendrick and you've lost adam eaton who seemed to big personality guys that you have a chance to keep zimmerman. It doesn't cost you a lot of money. I think you do it. I think that would make people plead and he and he would do and he would. Do you get the sense. What else mrs tony. Closing down particularly here in the pandemic. Some things have been opened longer.

"Teeth. Is this still field goal if the field goal is good there in over time. It's a thirty eight yard come up. Yeah yeah i and so i. I don't think it's automatically buffalo. Could be kansas city I as look around the afc. I'm going I don't know if anybody else strikes me as able to do that But certainly be buffalo does but my point i think tony in questioning both those number one seeds and the bye week will help kansas city. I think i think to come out and just be murderers row. Get after the week off. And the narrow victories. I just think it's it's a more open tournament like i think either one of them could lose to anybody who the packers faith in the in the when they come back. I look the brackets enough. They can't lose to washington or new york but could they lose bears. Yeah they well away. So so i look at the nfc. I concede that it's gonna take a really great effort by a team. Maybe buffalo may even baltimore to beat kansas city but on the other side i've watched new orleans lose badly. I watched green bay get crushed by tampa bay and then i watch tampa bay get crushed so over on that side. I could not with any confidence pick one team. I honestly could not seattle gets hot. They win it seattle's good enough to win. Even they ought to get hot. You gotta have one game is other capable with you know back coach and that quarterback of having a great game yes sir and so of course. Tom brady is out about the coats but brady certainly can. Just take a team to a win anytime so yes. Baltimore and buffalo can be city again. 'cause he kansas city finding itself you know with a week off and and and and ref. I could see that. But i could also see the other so i think there's gonna be a lot of fun in one. Just one by one team getting by i think contributes to that as well. I obviously plenty. I think there's some because you don't have fans in the stands and you don't have the usual home field advantage in hurts. Som- team also hurts. Kansas city because kansas city in my opinion having been to every one of the stadiums involved i haven't been to minnesota. But they're not involved in having been somewhere else is not involved. Kansas city has the greatest home field advantage. I believe of any team thinking through of any team in the playoffs in buffalo but fifteen years or whatever. The i think it's i actually thought it was seattle was the loudest outdoor place. I've ever been. I'm at the afc. I think it's kansas city in the afc. And yeah yes seattle seattle in green bay. I mean the only the nfc hurts them not to play with their full advantage. At home they have home field. Yes as a matter. Yes anybody who doesn't think it matters. All you gotta do is look that snow the other night. I'm lighten visit the to had no real chance going into that game. World conditions be. You know i mean i. I don't know but i think either. One of those teams could logo. I wind up down in crazy. Tony in a week we can wind up sounding nuts If they get their stride and look like one seeds would. I don't know i'm a little skeptical. I get you out of here on this. We will not have time to talk about it and we will not talk about it on television because we're just not going to be on the first round of the college playoffs this friday new year's day. I'm assuming that like me. You think that alabama and clemson will win i'm presuming alabama will win. I don't know about clemson right okay. i think i think that that you can you can be look dabble. Sweeney is supremely confident in his seat. But he put a big bull's eye on his back he did when he in ohio state is not. You know just some mo i mean. They've got a ton of guys who gonna play on sunday too right and i. I mean whatever resources coach day have to call on to get that team angry and keep them angry. You never keep them angry for a month because both season is normally like a month after the laugh games get to those to the exam two weeks and so by week is all it is and i. You know i mean. I know it's going to be hall upset. I'm not sure what the line is. But i may just ride with the buckeyes and people can say self-serving okay fine. I may just ride with the buckeyes to to to win that. Game and play alabama in file. Okay all right. We'll talk to you during the week. Thank you michael. I thanks like a wilpon boys and girls.

It's a fair trade off but at the same time I really think that that you you lose you lose something when you have an audience that is that is just so thrilled to be there and cheering and you don't get. You don't get a fair Gaijin also it's not so much that it's that even there's no place where you're getting an honest reaction because you're famous even at the bar shows and at the comedy cellar. So usually when I, go with the comedy cellar, maybe two or three people have seen me. But if you're one of these super famous people, everybody's seen you there hype to listen to you there hang on every word they know your background it's just it's not. It's. It's it's it's really hard to stay at the top of your creative abilities with with fame and it sounds like sour grapes and I would say this hour on the only. Is Only. Thirty percent of it I seventy percent believes. I seventy percent believe that that it's necessary to be a little bit unknown to keep improving. Yeah. I figure about that sinbad quote all the time where he I paraphrase but it's basically like you. You're no longer when a standup stops riding the bus they're no longer. Funny. Right That yeah. I love that. That's so true because I always I wish I remembered it. Before it was even a comedian was just a fan I would see certain comedians would talk about their meetings with super famous people sometimes the president and I would say to myself. Oh, they're they're they're finished with us they. They're they're no longer writing for us and that that that type of name-dropping never really moved really wanted to hear how they interpreted the life that was happening to me I think there's something that both you gary. We haven't common keeps you grounded that keeps you in touch with real life is that you both struggle with depression? And I think that allows you to you're not. At every level no matter if you are meeting. Obama or an IRA right you still are in touch with real life and some way through the dark lens always see through the dark lands. I. That is that is so interesting. I'm glad you brought that up because I thought about it a lot and nobody has ever brought it up but that's so interesting because I always think. Of How humbling it is and how you feel like you're walking this tightrope of of sanity and I always say I can see madness in my periphery and at all times and I keep it at bay have a lot of. Better coping mechanisms than I've ever had in my in my life and and yet I know that there's there's. Don't get cocky kid that's that's what I. Would these situations is is, yes, everything is going fine but you need to be you need to be vigilant and also it's important to be compassionate because as we as we become more wise I guess in the human condition, we realized that a lot of the people who are mistreating us or or abrupt or or just assholes that we know they're. Suffering, in some way, a lot of the. Times and so it's easier to have compassion and give grace and it's it's it's not a gift but there are ways to to interpret some of the some of the aspects of it as as positives or or or lessons, and and I just wish. Everyone could experience it for seventy two hours or whatever. It is.

O'Brien. Sabrina Jealous and Roy. Wood junior even if you're not a death or a parent I, think you're really gonNA like this show. So please check us out find. Dad's the podcast wherever you get your podcast. Don't Miss it You've been on so many late night shows like you're on the tonight show even on Letterman. Kimmel. All the shows which is great. But then with different pits every time that's really hard to do really hard to do. But then in two thousand, sixteen after several appearances on Conan you did a routine that blew up about state abbreviations so great. Yeah. How long had you been doing that routine before you did it on the CONAN show? Wonder, but it's the one that most people know me. And I feel like I don't mind because I. Think it's a good example of or sample of what I do right. The origins of that Jove came from this book I got in in second grade reading is fundamental it was called riff it would bring a whole pile of books in every kid got choose to am one of them was the Arrow of states I think it was some sort of thing where they were trying to get out this new state abbreviation thing that only two letters. I became obsessed with. Memorize and I recognize how difficult it was because. So many of them started with the same first two letters right when I first started doing comedy. I wrote this really long thing about the man and one woman who abbreviated states. had. Most of the components of the final thing except what needed to happen was everybody had to start watching documentaries that were not about either world or to or not Ken Burns documentary. Yes. Baseball. So I didn't have any reason to tell people that most of the states start with the same first two letters, it just seem so out of nowhere so I would I would bring it up every couple of years trying to get a laugh and you're like it's still not time yet it's not ready. And then I saw this documentary about the Helvetica. Oh. Yeah. Verge talk about the how bad at the documentary It was riveting but also so surprising that they even made a documentary about something. So boring. Yeah. Someone spent three years of their life putting that together, and then one night I had this idea you should say that the state abbreviation documentary. Used to it seriously and it was it was not even planned before I got on stage. It was just such a good audience that I said I'm going to keep going with this idea of ridiculous documentaries animated talk about the state abbreviations once I I had that sort of frame for it and I got laughs. That's when I I learned early on that, I can really save a lot of discouragment in disappointment if I didn't go all in on a joke until I got a few laughs off of a few. Lines then I would go really all the way with at and that's what half how over a couple of years I kept adding tweaking and one night JP was in the audience the comedy cellar and I knew it and I didn't know he was going to respond to it but I said I'm going to give this a shot because this is the best joke I do right now and and he emailed me a couple of days later testified he said, do you know anybody who does a joke about state abbreviation? On Conan and I was so thrilled and the other thing is most of the time they want you to do a few different jokes right Ed, take as long as you want, do every single in and out of that of that joke and ignore any kind of stop sign or anything just get the whole thing and so that gave me so much so much what I would say was it was very soothing to my fears of doing TV set, which is that ill need to get everything in I would go. So fast I probably went fast even but it I was much more relaxed and I got to do everything and I can't tell you how surprised. That, it went viral because. It's not that I don't think that anybody watches. It's that I think nobody is going to do any follow up to the show like right that they're gonNA share the video is that's what it all was people sharing it. I was I was just so so grateful for for crazy shares in another great thing that happened was Patton Oswalt Games like this rave review of it on his facebook through war. That's great. It has over one point seven million views. Yeah. I rounded up to two million. Right that was on youtube but through facebook, it was over thirty million, oh my God. Oh Wow. Yeah. We we wanted undersell it. That's amazing and love that story because there are so so many times when you have a bit or a piece of writing or something that doesn't get it, maybe it gets rejected or it doesn't work out the way you want it, and so you just put it away and this is a success story for a piece of writing that didn't have a life for so long but then you had to kind of. As long as it did for you to figure out the that remaining piece of the puzzle and that was what made it all work whenever I I have jokes that just about everybody is. To the premise for it. So I, remember headed joke about enjoying sleeping on the couch I was like a lot of people have access to that and I won't put too much effort into that if it doesn't work right away but then you have jokes where you think the abbreviations of the states is one more I think we'll nobody is going to try this. So when you have a chance to be original in a space where very little original I, think you really have to go all out. Stay on it for for as long as you have to I just think of that I'm not comparing myself to him at all of course would be sacrilege but Albert Einstein has this quote where he says I don't think I'm smarter than everybody else which is like false humility of course but he said I also problem longer than everyone I think that was what I did with the state abbreviation. Yeah. Most people if it doesn't work after twenty years Original right and you know what? I love the. told you hey, don't worry about time and you know what I watched that bit again today it's over six minutes long, which is very long. That's a long set like usually the standup sets on Conan are like five minutes. So it's a longer than normal and the entire set was literally just about the state abbreviations and it's such a testament to how great a piece it is that over thirty million people have watched it 'cause it's so beautifully written and it's so tight. You just sit there and enjoy the whole thing and. I really appreciate that I'm very proud of the idea that so many. People Sheridan. Touched after show when people come up with their with their family of different generations that comes to the..

It was the easiest book in the world to right because it was in our soul, he's always just mentioned it. Yeah, yeah, we lived at we. You know I mean I could almost written the whole thing without any notes, and so it was fun. You know this whole analogy of climbing this mountain. It's just so helpful because you know we all know without doing just inherently that climbing amount is not an easy thing to do so using that idea, and and helping others I'm sure there have been so many people that have come back and get giving you fate back on just how wonderful and useful and practical the concepts in this book tell me. How did you feel? When you first out to receive accolades for this book. It was so great. I have a little blue respond that I've made up. It's a little narrow. One and people seem to like it, but it's on one side is. Climbing on the other little silences, the view from the top is worth it. And and I have hundreds of them and I give them away.

Somebody in my car, an interest start talking I didn't bring it up. You know like their bartender or I listen. They just start telling me stuff and I say well. I can't fix that, but here's a little something I learned I. Say present for you. Do what you want with it and I. Mean some of them literally are sobbing in the back of the car because they're going.

He's on the phone with them. You know she's sharing what what kind of chemo our? Stuff I, can't you know address potatoes and she says I've been there, you know hey I've been up that mountain. And so she's she's as big a helper as I am, and though she didn't write the book she's. She's often goes with me as she. We shares her side of the story, or she's just doing at one on one. That just been the lady I talked to across the street. We did not know. She.

It is and one of the principals, if I could share one and their couple that I put right at the top, and this is one of you. Don't climb alone. You know your your fool to climb a mountain by yourself and some do it. Well that's a great principle when you're going through a personal mountain and so yeah, Jackie I was her helper and she was mind, but you know other people you know we've. We've told them look.

"About. Your book never quit climbing because it struck me as a very live driven experience, the timing was very interesting. Yeah. Let's talk about that. Sure, you bet well. I've I've I've a mountain guy I'm not a pro. I'm not an an Alex Ronald. You know I've never claimed L. Cap, but but I love the mountains since I was kid I tell that story in the book, and so we got Sir doing stuff with our kids I made one of my goals to talk about. Goals was to climb three fourteen thousand foot I wasn't that'd be three four thousand meter peaks. Before my son got out of high school. I WANNA. Do something as a dad with my son and we did that and we actually did a fourth one I did three with my daughter same idea, and then I did one with my wife, which was just for the whole cancer diagnosis, but I've had this phrase never quit climbing for a while, but But boy, it came alive when she got cancer that three months diagnosis after she did her first fourteen, or as they're called and we saw, so we started learning as we went through that and I'd love to say. We learned it right away, we didn't we? We learned as we went. Hey, we have to climb this cancer Malcolm because he was. was like Mount. Everest to us. We have to climb this cancer mountain same way we climb a regular mountain, and all of a sudden that started to be helpful. It didn't take the mountain away, but in the book. What I do is I start going through. What are the eight or ten principles that we learned from the real big mountains that we learned? Learned to to get through not just cancer, it could be finances. It could be relationships that could be grief What are some things that will help you because we've been up that mountain? What can we show you? That might be of help, and so you know we can talk about some of those, but that's the gist of the book. Yeah, that's wonderful. Again. Life is the biggest teacher I wonder. If we can I, guess jump to the middle, and and look at you and your wife on your journey, you have ascended and met that summit. You arrived at the top of this this journey At what point did you realize that? You know this was all going to be useful for you to put into a book. Yeah? Probably after the fact, you know, we we. We told the story and. Most of my books I have written because I've found myself saying the same things over and over to a lot of different people you know, and I thought well, if I speak on, it s great, but I can't cover the whole topic, so let me put this in a book or My neighbor just tonight about an hour ago. I was sitting out front, and he was telling me his story and I said you know. You guys readers. You know just WanNa. Make sure they'd like to read and I said I got a book for you.

The bank are taken over by large bank union bank and it was like night and day difference instead of talking to the c._e._o. When i had a need or my representative it was a call center and the relationship soured quickly and it got me thinking why the personal touch is not only important from the consumer's. It's important from the bank side so i got thinking thinking. Is there a way we could use software to bring back community. Lending one of our ideas is start bringing back essays and having people write about what they're gonna do with the money and what's there have been history of repayment as and i think there's a lot of efficacy to that.
