"Actually in the book. It was kinda cool but like you had lyrics containing stanzas from your whole music catalog. That helped push your story and allowed us to dissect exactly what what was going on in your life. Yes yeah my drummer. When people find out they all your songs are literally true. You are in so much trouble. You're not a reporter yourself. I mean you write what you know. Titles but the people don't have names and i didn't. I'm not sure. I used that as a device really i just found it uncomfortably specific if i use names other than the children's and it did serve that the fluid bandmate problem. Which is the drummer is to people the basement and but they play the same role in my life where they are in the drummer's foundation in these players between europe. And we all live together. You know there is no closer family than these bands. But i also kind of like with nicknames when you give somebody a nickname yes you just like with the nickname so in essence and i have a problem with no if it's western culture the entertainment industry but this concept league names. They actually used. The germ isn't one person could be more important than another person. But status is so insidious that you would use that to determine a human's value does valuation. I'd so disliked in the entertainment industry where it's particularly cartoonist. Even conan o'brien have invaded in my. Just give me show. I have to ask. Because i've seen i see your tattoo. I always like to ask people about their tattoos and especially with you. I mean usually. There's something memorable about. What does that. Look kids initial speed. W did the baby and ends with the big the big baby. That's that's saved meaningful. We we we like our tattoos to have meaning buddy and i went together to the tattoo parlor and the irish channel in new orleans as i was leaving frost julia and he was going to have to be alone and he was. He was kind of young young Wait all young enough for me. To be really distraught. He will always be young two young. You need prayer beads. So this'll be your beats. Just i wanna make sure you come home and our names and our identities will bring you home. You feel safe even when you're across the world and that's kind of held. They were raised anyway. I didn't know it some gin. But it's a sensibility an orientation course your home across the world. Because you're not home anywhere you just are men and if you need herbie's to wake you up to that than tattoos work that's really lovely. Lovely that it came from him that he was the apparent sandwich there about eleven. I didn't make it beyond age. Eleven himselves and me That age where they start holding doors per year and carrying groceries and amps and guitars is when they go well. I'm never really figured this out. Baking cookies it'd be nice. This book seeing sideways was amazing. It was quite a journey. I felt like it took me all all over the place and appreciate y'all reading. I haven't met many nickel ready yet because it just came out. It felt like like you wrote for separate songs or south. You know it's like you know it's just like yeah this themselves. Yeah this is like a record album in a way and so you know it was great a very enjoyable to me. He said if i time it right you'll be facing empty nest when it's published and just awful right extra motion right. He just waited and said you can do it really. I know i can. But i don't want to. That's just wrong. And it was nice to have the opportunity to create a story line out of some being that it's like thirty years. Larne our the lab edit out all the boring stuff or one. You don't often do that to your own life. you liga. Storylines and other people's lives are movies and stuff but your own life is just a big lump of clay with everything in it. But once you start chipping away at the boring stuff you get this storyline. That was it actually really nice to identify As i was having to let it go don't realize you're living this through storyline as creative with like foreshadowing gyros and everything disney. My us our lives are doing thank you. This was yeah again. The book is a wonderful seeing sideways. It's available everywhere.

"Do you prefer. Well we we had listeners until we signed read you know. Corporate reality is very it's insidious and damaging and the first symptom. That damage i noticed. Is that we no longer had listeners. We just had these fans. If it was an odd inflammatory response that engendered in human beings that we're acting like human beings. They wanted us on a pedestal so they could not stop and they had no interest in music. They wanted to hear like whatever dumb songs on the radio and then lieven. But they're crazy they're like they seem obsessed with you but you know that his nutty you do you. It's going to be somebody else next month. This is why. I don't want to bake. And i wanted to work and never wanted to be a popstar. Never wanted to be a rockstar. I wanted to be in the corner. They say you're going to be in right now and out next year and good luck fast actually by definition of emerald not time when we were gone from the time lead so the listener also goes simon. And they're not going to attribute that to you of the escapee. Do something good. You're not responsible for it. So they don't really want autographs and stuff like that but they do support us by. Actually they pay our studio costs and this allows us to circumvent the industry. Really as a whole and i'm not rigid about it. Now i worked with a record company. So that i don't have to earmark funds for promotion distribution and production and it's another way of work and stuff bow pandemic as another year where we had to go. Okay now. you're touching on the strange angels. Who help you out. Can you tell us about the strange angels. Yeah when it collapsed and everything she collapsed. It is when it is is real. Our bus was a great solution for us. All of live on us never stopped working traveling and in a bias there was a fiery crash on a mountainside and that was our home. It was our livelihood it was everything my children had known when that crash happened. You know there is a pickle jar. Full of goldfish sank in one of the fish died. And my little boy y Said that he wanted to help. The fish. And i thought he knew it. Death was i kinda. Put the hippie tok on hold. you know. We're going to do this after you focused and sent good energy to this looks fishy fear and i sort of forgot stock going on and i left wyatt staring the depth fish hours and i came back and said okay. Now we're going to have the talk about sangha buyers. Good practice goldfish perfect. For when you start to lose people will done this you know and then the fish jumps up in the air and start swimming around. It says oh good. No no no no. We pulled our money. We i told my bandmates. I'll fly you home. you know you. You're off the hook this mike failure. You can't play good music. My bad i thought you could. You cannot not whore yourself out laba and they said no way pulling our money. We're all gonna finish this tour so by the time we got to the next two club. All these people started writing saying we heard about your bus crash ramona. Give you studio time. We want you to stay with us. We're going to give you tars an play my club. What can we do so that you don't stop playing music. I'm crying right now. She's fucking summit but that was the strain jane. Does that became how my family continued. How my music continue. How i continue. I don't i don't know why they would have done iras ready to just you know drive off the mountain side day. But they're still doing it.

"As going to ask. I don't know if you're a grateful dead fan but this kind of felt like a like jams like every chapter was like we're gonna we're gonna jam we go off. We might go off in the little direction over here. But then we'll bring you back but then we're gonna jam a little bit then. The here's a little stream of conscious thoughts and so that's kind of what it felt like an away. Yeah it's just a big jam session. Will the voices of the children informed the style of the rating in rat girl. There were different voices that the chapters were divided according to seasons pretty similar to the children. And the i was. The first voice was very young and then it gets pre on shattered and then drugged and then pregnant and those are very very different. Voices and in this case is my children's voices dooney rider. Why am buddy have different effects in different ways and of course you don't know them this. It was just for me like a get psyched way to myself into each passing year. By the time they get to bodey. Who am i going to say. Eighty about him. But he's a scattershot human. Being his focus is water essentially. But it's just bam bam bam bam bam bam and it's exactly what the book and the story line which is obviously a lifeline. Needed just to. Jackson pollock out at the end. It's not unlike laying a lead. I give i played noise leads. And i make sure that they are never chops. Never going to memorize that. I have to be thinking on likely in responding. And you have to hear conyers of notes going by south ayrshire which are atonal you to sound like a beer commercial. Would you can't just play anything. It has to be ray and baudys voice and presence taught me how right scattershot can be just the way a lead. I love that very good. Compared to then do it was told. I enjoyed the way it was told. But i i. I take issue with the your thing. It can't be you know all dark in gown injury. Jury people want to hear the story and and that feels genuine to the reader. That's why i mean i gave. It's not like at the annual review a book and say it was too dark for me. I mean this is your story. That is a good point. In fact we just had this conversation over pancakes manigault because it's always been wyatt's assertion that we need the turquoise meaning we need a minor we need the sadness a don't shy away from what is most beautiful looking for what is most comfortable and that's certainly an old idea that we haven't all incorporated into our work or our lives and i feel like i'm a mothering. Sense of kindness to the reader. I if i didn't want to go there and i had to wipe put them there and the only answer that you say is to really go you go all the way through and suddenly you are devoid of the capacity to judge. It's no longer comfort or discomfort. it's just experience completely engaged in the audience. In the first few periods of the book. Said you have no idea. What's going on at psych right. Yeah you have no idea what's going. Yeah dat genuine. I heard a previous discussion you. We're talking with john doe and john doe called the first chapter wonderfully mysterious which is pretty much. What it felt. Like is jonah arbiter. That way he is he will allow anything except what shouldn't be and he's got good taste regard so it can put john through that. I know that he's gonna come through and say that is just mystery than okay. Well said i will like the someone to say that it would me that you said that he is an arbiter of very good arbiter of what should be your comment. Here's done that to him plenty. I'm so doormat. Nice make a. Let's see how that goes to positive about everything. And he's very accepting and then he'll just like door slams he's like it's not gonna happen like i will have to learn from those. Everyone needs someone who will call them out. s junior. Yeah yeah you had a few moments like that in the book like when you were pregnant and doing this video that you know it seemed like it was kind of ridiculous what they were making you do and you're kind of going through the motions like all right. I'm just going to do this or you know worse than that. It was very it was just humiliation degradation and fury. That any everything. I believed is just being thrown to the garbage. Like you're gonna play stupid music. This is going to be sexist to say everything you are against is happening and we are going to destroy you in the process and all i had done was wanna play music. That didn't lie didn't flirt. Did not insult was not marketing fodder. And they hate you. When you do that. They will destroy you. Then we let it happen and that was the best thing that ever happened. It's like okay. You're gonna destroy me and this is still gonna be quote one of your most popular songs and yet my real ban when we became a trio. Was this great world of you. Do not own what you think you own. screw you. And they wouldn't send our records to record stores. They took our song. Bright yellow gun off the radio said we're not working Amuses we put our money behind another band and we just i. This is proof in it happened again with fifty foot way years later we did. We wouldn't charge for music. We wanted to see what happened if you took the dollar sign out of it and we did two million downloads of record and billboard freaked out the calling me mad you know like when you tell them numbers and who the hell are you and i don't care like why do you care. And then they found out that we didn't charge and they said oh never mind is. It doesn't concern us site. i knew it. It's bad enough to count units sold. But you're discounting money we come. What year was this this. Around the time of in rainbows. I know radiohead famously. Did like a name your own price type situation. Actually i. yeah i to do that and so it was a few years before that it was great to find like you know your world is gonna fall and someone is gonna take the word music away from you because this is not what you sell. And it's true they sell product. And there's a kind of broadway model dancer singer. The victim dress up his artist to do whatever they want. Say they call themselves musicians but it's not what they do and it's just kleenex. Wonder bread and it just kind of fades into the background and power is not to be found when you're counting back crap when you're looking for people who want attention rather than wanting to be selfless there's nothing giving their. It's all taping. It's is playing out the way it was always willing to. I guess that was helpful when fifty foot wave hit the road or their. You've you've probably got a lot of new fans that want wanted to listen to your music actually Now that i say fans in the book you also talk about the difference between fans and listeners. Which which.

"Backs of the. What difference does it make. Podcast and our very special guest kristin hersh in the start of seeing sideways. You have a quote from bodey who says all scars beautiful because you lived and it seems like. That's what kind of what you've touched on. When something so wise. Come out of this kid. I ask what i would say. We were biking down constant street in new orleans. And i just my friends and family tend to speak this way anyway. I heard from some of the first people who read the book at the dialogue seemed punched up like because that's exactly how we talk and we were talking about hard and we were talking about grounded medicare. that's they're both the same thing the how they see this very clearly. But they're also little to here they don't have any way to escape here and he said that and i actually i remember the sound of my breaks and i took a picture of him when he was saying it. I still have this little kid baseball cap. Do you know what you making us one. Let's get to just keep our kids are roughly the same age very kid to to Stop all those moments in time. Yeah yeah i memoir is as impressionistic as it is. It's a nice series of snapshots. Yeah the you have that in writing we just keep it all up here. It's the one thing they tell you when they were many things they tell you. When you become apparent right you say just remember everything like i. I'm sure member everything. Yeah i have rare help you have so many near all. They didn't have much outside of this sphere. You know they grow up on the bus and innovation and traveling around with us but they has so they have this world the view that is safe. You know they didn't experience 'isms and used and they're just now coming to grips with the fact that the world is not the bus and in fact they all come to me and said ma. The world is not like well. I know that's why the buzz like. Why did you make. I made the bus. That's funny because now i think a lot of families would think the opposite like being on that has not safe like you're traveling around the country and different Scenery every every day. Something different and you don't know what's out there and there's a lot of unknown. I think you're a little in the minority on that. This was not something stable this we were. We were on the move. We were not saying physically but we were saved psychologically and they have become little soldiers. Who can work with hunger and environment and natural environments and people who all look speak very differently and and yet never only recently come to know things like racism. Sexism war cruelty so i kept them as safe as i could. While giving them the muscles they might need to be human beings and now they're coming back and saying i need different muscles. This fights that mom is there is a is it. You know just inherently makes them feel safe. I think wherever wherever the location and i'm very sunny person annoyingly sunny costing me sunny depending on who. You're it was very light and fun coming from me like everything you know. The mom's span. I'm doing right. There's nobody doing that. Just what the hell is it are they. Are they still close to. I mean physically close to you. Know they're all over. The players have a sheriff's in manhattan and abakar in new orleans and animator was in l. A. now cleaning his karma is. I would imagine that's why why it is the animator of course england at a health food store. You still animating mega did. But i did leaving corporate and trying to get clean from it and then i have a little boaty a surfer. Who's a accurate shape inboards Surfing air all spread out and they're all sort of sober about at a row pile puppies. They don't know what to think about reality. And if they're spread out there murdered they're doing it so they they got a taste of it all. Yeah yeah i'll tell them you said so as the mom exactly you say it's sunny. Keep everything like the partridge family. But but you read this book in it all of a sudden. You're like the start of like what's happening way second. Is she where you drowning. You know like she drowning. Or what's and you know. There was a lot of internal turmoil with based on this book. And kind of subconscious. I don't know if you know like sunny on the outside and then inside there's just this this is so much going on a very dark place. There's no way anyone could be sunny through that. And it's an odd way to begin a book. But that's where. I had to start enough. People had asked me from the sequel to rack girl that i had just said no. You know you don't wanna go there this. That book ends and triumphant bastion. Keep your hope. We're it is mine where it is and we're not going to go there together. It is a kind of cruelty to take somebody there. This wasn't my idea was my publishers. And they knew that. As soon as i got addicted to the time tripping process that i put in my years and it was about five or six years of course absolute obsession. Just get up at two or three in the morning and time tripping until dawn that when you do your best work girl when you don't know if it's night or day you can't hear anything you can remember In a way that's akin to selkirk noces. the textures colors sounds people's voices. And i did check in with journalists bandmates and children and say is this. Did it happen. The way am remembering and maybe they're all be polite but they said yeah and the result in is as honest as i can be new. Hope that you know honesty. Enter the very different pains. Truth is a clarity that we aren't always afforded as humans. Were in the mess. And i was certainly in the mess when i was twenty. Whatever when this book begins. That's touching you just don't wanna share too much pain with people. Don't like to hurt people and if you do and then down a pit together you should be fashioning some kind of ladder out of the pit. Some kind of light. And the only thing i could really offer them was this stream of consciousness deemed the when. You're straddling reality this too harsh. There's always a concurrent dream and that dream gets you to the next harsh. Which is the the second chapters all the harshness of the the music business the corporate business and bats degradation that i find even more difficult to suffer through because dryness dead. You know samba fixation there. It's only when the book wakes up in new orleans. That i think the mysterious same will save writing it out which is how i live. Just like. just don't forget new orleans carry that richness and know that darkness has its place and you even if.

"Kind of struck literally. I guess that's how you've you've found your muse. Get can you touch on what you were in an accident at sixteen and that's like music started using you as a conduit. I guess it felt. Like i started playing when i was nine. I take about ten years of classical guitar. And i was writing songs nine so music was already bear and i had a band when i was hit but i had a triple concussion as well. My whole body was broken. I should be dead but in hospital. I was hearing sounds. It sounded like industrial noise. And they would. Eventually i realized other people were hearing us to make regathering themselves into a sonic Caballero with which. I was familiar meaning up in and those became my songs but they always were. I was just being made aware of this alternate personality. That was music. I had never had any memory of writing songs or playing on. Because i will go into a trance and i just thought art is focus artists. Strange and it's what people say. But now that i've been made aware that this was an alternate personality I realized all the trauma in my life was going into music so that i could just be this nice lady. Everybody's trained in mother and wife. And i wasn't nice person all the time and the music was bad. Santa celebrate as it fell it was there was a lot of kids. And it's only in the last five years. I found out what was actually happening. Allied i i didn't remember music and why i hadn't incorporated into my personality in. It's a pretty quick treatment. And it's a little unsettling to be music now and have myself be the songs and take responsibility for not disappear but it's not that i was a conduit is that i was unaware of the part of me that was writing songs and curious about the treatment. You said was couldn't gauge from the book. How long the treatment actually was from me. I had begun treating ptsd from losing my son and spoken with a lot of ptsd. A veterans go war veterans who come to my readings and their experience of em vr as it works very very quickly but mine was not about me. Mama was a child and it was so deeply embedded in so other than so beyond self good that it took about six months really wrenching treatments to move that event back in time. And that's when the practitioner started saying you're dissociating dissociate. And i wasn't willing to hear one more person say that i was mentally ill when i have never been unstable in any way so it took a while for me to really embrace that function. And it's good thing you a lot more years in front of you. I got so. And i'm aware now that it isn't the darkness. It's just a reality. You know the dalai lama says you you embrace reality because it is up for any other reason you go out and you march against reality of you need to china changes in the meantime. That's not hide from it. And that's that's a good point. I was hating in. Humans aren't allowed to do that. We are talking to kristin hersh the author of the book seeing sideways.

And i knew that this was not for everyone in it was not for corporate machinery and no one was going to think that and that didn't turn out to be true so i had to make the same mistakes that make people make that prevents actual work from being exposed because of marketing team is generally going to go for the lowest common denominator in salt. And that really hurts. Women really hurts music as a woman in music. I had to stand there and say you know what i reject. Y'all if you won't let me change things in my work and my presentation. I'm leaving and of course you know how corporate machine works. They say no. We you and i had to fight and fight insight to escape and then once i finally i traded my Curse solo record for our credo To face the fact that it is necessary they have created a landscape in which only lowest common denominator is heard. What do we do every year. It's been a matter of troubleshooting but mostly just the diy and listener supported have created a different landscape for us where a lack of quality would be frowned upon route. Finally we're also tonight. And i realized that there are two separate entities. Because i appreciate you know your whole story about leaving the the record label and your reasons for it and you know how you've been able to get your music out there with touring. You're you're not dealing with you know with the marketing aspect of label or anything like that. But do you still find. I mean it's still corporate. It's still business is still make. I mean for the promoters. Are you comfortable working with them. Asks a question yeah. There's always a sub music in the recording industry with amazing radio stations. Amazing record labels amazing record. Stores management photographers videography. I produce it is that we exist. This subculture is effective invalid. But we're not going for big money because we are willing to dumb down the product. And i believe in a fair exchange given sustainability is really over after and it happens. We went totally. Diy with fifty foot wave which is a cooperative. We maintained relationships with people all over the world so that we could just make a fair wage in order to keep going and it does work as long as your expectations are in line with the effectiveness of your music. Which again is not forever. But i don't know what it is. You know you look at the stuff and using well. That's not for me. So i was going to ask you the last time you did a big festival. We were actually at the pasadena. Daydream festival with the cure. And all that. It was quite a fun time. How do you how do you see yourself fitting into something like this big big. You know it's the cure. It's it's fifty thousand people. You know there's a lot a lot happening there but you seem to enjoy playing that festival you know. We always enjoyed playing. That's what we do. It doesn't register. You know that there are different number of people because the music doesn't change and all we offer is focus on literally just like looking down or stirring up into space and i do the same thing regardless of where i am finding a garage. I do exactly what you saw at a pivot for a second about the kids in using your kids. appreciate you separately. You know as as a musician but what kind of music are they into. And how did they get into it. You know this is really sad. Answer in my van and listening to my friends music on the same taste in music. And i feel really guilty about this but i choose to believe it's quality the looking for and i do learn about different bands from them not necessarily new ones because now the music is in the ether. We can just grab it. You tend to listen regardless of genre. An era and this is what i worked for not just my children but listening populace which can be very musically when it's all top down and determined by money big money you don't get to hear your own opinions. You're sorta believing that what is marketed to you is. What you like and everyone's doing this. And that's the bandwagon appeal which is the lowest common denominator. And then there's well there's the best people are doing this. This is expert culture and snob appeal and somewhere in there are all humans that have their own opinions but they haven't been nurtured enough beyond the point where they had a true visceral response to sound. We're all born with riches sort of flirted with we lose touch with what we we love it when we were organisms and i just want people to get that back that beautiful quality of having your heart struck by sound and not because you think other people are doing it or good people are doing it or people are smart people or anybody.

Podcast look forward to see whatever's in our kristin hersh talk so we get right into it. This is kristin hersh on the. What difference does it make podcast. Thanks for doing this today thank you. I saw christianity now. We're we're thrilled to have you. Hey i used to have one of those. i'm pointing. when i was pregnant in new england used to what my daughter on your little treadmill would be during the winter. winds too snowy to Yeah yeah sometimes. I get out. I was two people on it unwieldy. And then you've got the dog on the lee sars i i choose baby over dog. Get up carefully in the dog which is slow across renewed about that because the dog sometimes sometimes get on it. you know. it's when it's not moving. I think what if it turned it on his. We're both a little bit. Evil was nothing wrong with being a little bit ego. So let's get started and you're doing a tour right now almost except from your bedroom. Virtual daily mentioned that. I was all excited ready to pack. No but this way. I get to have friends from all over the country you know. Join me and i liked a little book. Event thing. it's real focused and charming and this is a completely different thing and not without its charms. Can you see everybody when you or you just at when you're doing the book events. I see my friend and we talk. And i'm kind of shy. I'm very very shy to like respond to emails as you go to the grocery store and things like that and this is just not hard. I was looking for because the book alone is sense an exposure. And i'm not into that either. I just don't belong here about my hard snow that because you've written you have the books and the music how you're able to and you say you're extremely shy arc to put yourself out there to get to get any of it out how you you know what you what you tell yourself or how you make yourself comfortable. That's a really good way of putting it. Because i don't want to be here i want. I am obsessed with to work. And the work can't finish itself without their participation and as a shy person. That's a difficult thing to admit. I have tried to not a scientist pile up and certify. Tried to keep a kid in a closet when he wanted to venture out and yeah. They're not safe there but they are effective. And you can't remove that quality from something that should be an alive thing. I if you write a bad song it's not alive anyway and so there's no participation is just kind of a an aggressive onslaught of look at me tap dancing and without that i do have to talk myself into the work and i do that by knowing that no one is ever going to hear this song and no one ever gonna read this story and a half the know it for sure and then the shock published. And it's i'm tasked with this question. Mark this publishable. Is this something that anyone else needs. And you need to approach the universal and the idiosyncratic in order to get there. It can't just be care about me. 'cause that's evil but i have to be a holy president in myself could with all senses engaged or have got nothing to offer that's actually a very selfless perspective.

Common Facebook Ad Mistakes: How To Avoid Them & Save Money with Emily Hirsh

"I feel like there are two types of people when it comes to facebook ads those who love them and are excited to learn more and improve how they use them and those who are intimidated by them and would rather go organiz their fridge than learn more about them but then again.

Because emily is going to get into how to make these approaches realistic for wherever you're at in your entrepreneurial journey along with exactly where start infact. We've actually work with emily's company hirsch marketing during some of our past launches to manage our facebook ads and they definitely delivered. Alright so please help me. Welcome my guest emily. Well hey there. Emily welcome to the show. Yea thanks for having me. Oh i'm so happy you're here and before we get started. Why don't you give just a brief introduction to what hersh markings all about. Yeah so hirsch. Marketing is an ad agency. We specialize in facebook and instagram ads. And we specifically help people with courses and coaches people selling online digitally their products or their services. And i've got a team of about twenty two people all over the us than we do. Both running the ads than also teaching how to do it in our in our other product. Twenty two people. Is that what you said. Yeah i've got twenty two employees and then a couple contractors that is impressive. I have about twenty as well and you're a lot younger than me. So i've been in business longer and it took me a long time to build up a team like that. I feel like you have grown so quickly so fast and like the best way possible. Would you agree. Yes and growing team is like and as you know twenty people it really pushes you to grow as an individual i share so yes does it. Humbly oh my goodness like if you wanna know all your fault as a leader in all the areas need to really strengthen go ahead and build the big team that will do it or you know yeah exactly going the teams the hardest thing i've ever done. That could be an imam. Okay hey manchester event. I hear ya okay. So we've got a lot to cover today and you have five of the most common mistakes that you see entrepreneurs make when they're growing their business with facebook ads now facebook. Ads is a hot topic with my audience. Whether it be my newbie students are going at it with their first launch and they might want to dabble with this book ads or those that are in their second third and beyond launch. That wanna go really really deep with ads and do a great job usually on their own to start out with and then they looked to an agency so i would love to dive into all of these mistakes. So why. don't you kick us off with mistake. Number one yeah so the first mistake is before you even get to the ads. Peace that so many people miss over whether you're of beginner and you've never run ads. But i've also talked to seven figure business owners who skip over this and continued to not do it because it's so easy to miss and that's not defining what success means for their marketing. So what that really looks like is. What's your budget and how much you're going to make from that budget and a lot of times people kinda pull out like i think spend thousand dollars in see what happens and what. I encourage in really want people to do it. Encourage you to do to get the most out of what you spend is say over the next. Let's say thirty days. I wanna make this many sales which equals this many dollars and then working backwards and deciding from that what your investment is because if you go into ads in your kind of just like picking a number and then seeing what happens what will happen is you'll start running ads in. You'll say things. Like i have no idea if this is working or not. I have no idea where to put my time in energy to get to work and then end up just turning your ads off in waiting. A few months in china have seen that play out so many times so before you even start ads weather. Like i said you're a beginner. You're intermediate your advanced. You need to go into it knowing this is exactly my budget is exactly my sales goals. So that when you start running ads you're able to kind of pick it apart in. See what isn't isn't working and you defined what that success is for yourself just like you've never tried to do something without maybe setting a goal of what that is like you say i wanna get healthy. What does that mean to you. Same with ads. If you wanna run ads what is a successful ad campaign. Look like for you and then it should be based on numbers. Okay so this is such a great place to start. Because i know what my students and my listeners are thinking right now especially if they've never ran ads they'll say okay me. I know how much money i wanna make with. Let's say my first digital course launch or even my second digital launch but they don't understand or know yet how much they should budget for ads. They're like well. How much is it going to cost me to get lead for my webinar. Like let's focus on that. That's the biggest reason why my students would be running ads. I know you can't get into every single number in detail. But what would you say to somebody. That's struggling with that. Yeah so let's walk through how we would how we would break this down. So i you decide that sales goal. So let's say you wanna make make it easy ten thousand dollars. You've got a thousand dollar course. You need to sell ten. So you have that number of those sales goals. Okay now you have to decide your after come up. With how many leads you need into your web. In our in order to get those ten sales so for simplicity sake the average conversion is like one to five percent of all of your leads in. It's going to depend on your audience and the price of your offer. Let's just say three percent of people that sign up for your webinar. The total registrants are going to buy that course so you need ten sales and three percent are going to buy than what would be that total number of leads and i can't do math really fast but i mean what are you whatever that equals i think it would be like one percent is three hundred leads so we will need hundred leads. I think that's right so there once you have your leads. Then what's your cost per lead and an average cost lead for a webinar is anywhere from like four to ten dollars and again it depends on your industry when you're targeting consumers you usually have a cheaper cost per lead where if you're targeting business owners usually pay a little bit more because it's just a more saturated ad space so let's say five dollars you multi that let's say we need a hundred leads. Okay your ad spends five hundred dollars and that's how you break it down and get there. Okay i'm glad that you walk through this in the way that you did. I think my listeners really wanted some concrete data and like a formula to us. So i think that was really helpful so i appreciate you taking the time to really drill. That went down. Yeah perfect all right so move us on to mistake number two okay. The second mistake that many people make is they. Don't do enough testing especially of your ad creative so your copy your images maybe test video and in my opinion when i see someone saying that their ads aren't working eighty five ninety percent of the time. It's the messaging because it takes a lot of work to really understand who your ideal customer is and how to speak to them and how to stand out in the feed especially this year. It's just gotten even more important to go deeper to take it to the next level with talking to your ideal customers fears and their dreams and where they're struggling right now and so a lot people mostly because ads can be a lot of work. But i encourage you to take the extra week if you need you know as you get ready for adds to have at least three versions of your ad that you're testing. Maybe it's a long form of copy in a short form of copy and then you have a video an image. Because i'll get this question all the time. People's will what works better video or image or what works better long or short and it i there is no concrete answer because it's truly different for every audience. A lotta times. I do see video work better than in some cases i see a static image with no tax work better for somebody so the more testing you can do and the more deep you can go with your messaging to stand out the better. Your results will be and like i said truly eighty five ninety percent of time when your ads are hitting that cost per lead goal or they're too expensive or they're not converting it's because of your messaging because as you know amy like so many years it takes so much time to really truly know your customer but the person who knows them the most and can talk to them. The best in the feed will always

"People and of you in this room. Concerning developments today and over the last few days. This has, of course not been a different has been a difficult time. President, United States will meet various members of the bipartisan leadership of Congress here at the White House. Earlier this evening. Tonight at nine o'clock Eastern daylight time. President. United States will address the nation on radio and television from his Oval Office that from then press secretary run Ziegler and Lynn Downey. That was the culmination of an investigation. That was two years and two months in the making. Right. That was the investigation of Watergate, which began with Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein and some other reporters and editors at the Washington Post. I had just come back from a leave of absence. To become the number two editor on the local news staff, which is where the story was covered because the break in of the Watergate was a local story on and gradually worked my way into the chain of command working on those stories until starting in 1973, roughly just before the Senate Watergate hearing began. I was the lead editor for The Watergate coverage until the president's resignation in the in the beginning during those early months. Ah, for most of 1972, we're all alone in the story. There was no Internet. Then there is no cable television, then the Washington Post with circulated only in Washington on so ah, lot of people either didn't pay any attention to what our coverage wass or because the administration was constantly attacking. A post for attacking Ben Bradlee personally about it. Some people just simply didn't believe it. In fact, most of the political reporters in Washington including those in our own staff didn't believe it for many months because it just was so so impossible to imagine that the president states would be involved in the way he waas in the cover up of the break in on. So it was when Walter Cronkite How do you devoted the first half hour for the first half of his half our newscast towards the end of October, 1 evening to Watergate to called the nation's attention to our coverage of Watergate, holding up front pages of The New York Times until of the Washington Post on television that the other other journalists became interested in and bend. It was the first time In fact, the only time during my career when I was happy to have competition that we were no longer alone under attack by the administration, But we had Seymour Hersh in The New York Times and some of the news magazines and other is competing with us for in the investigative reporting, and and I think that was a That was a good thing for once. How different would that story be today? With cable news with Social MEDIA? Fox, CNN, MSNBC. I'm often asked that question and it's impossible to imagine it certainly wouldn't have taken two years. On. I don't know what how what the next administration might have been able to to create in you know where now right wing cable cable news networks and websites and radio shows and so on. What kind of opposition and to the coverage and protection of the president they might have been able to gain so it probably would have become much more a big political issue a lot earlier on, and I just I just don't know what would have happened and you curly would not have been anywhere near the same during oral history that he taped back in 2006 former editor Ben Bradlee. Speaking to the museum about the Watergate investigation, the very 1st 1st day or two, the way our police reporter Al Lewis got the address book of one of them. I mean, that's That's why The New York Times had trouble with the story. Never police reporter on They didn't S so they didn't have that book. But one of the names in the book was HL Hunt, which didn't mean anything to anybody. But when, when? Ah, when would would calls hunt and says I want Why is your name in the book on DH? You know we're investigating, but hunt sense It was Oh, my God. That gave you a sort of Ah ah, hint that you are under something. And then when it turned out that, you know, one time work for the CIA and all the stuff, it just got better and better and better until just before election. The story disappeared. We need we couldn't get a soul to talk to us. And then, of course, that changed in early 1973. Yes, three again because they said in part because of the competition. Seymour Hersh to The New York Times broke the story about the hush money being paid to the burglars to keep their mouth shut something we have not been able to get up to that point. Which was a nice break through and that led Carl and Bob to redouble their efforts on DH to break many more stories. And and also, I think it loosened up more sources at once. The election was over sources who are concerned about about history on about something in some cases their own skins as the investigation began to change. From being only focused on the on the burglary itself to being focused on. Did it lead to the White House or not under pressure from Congress? You chronicle in details some of the other significant moments of the last 40 to 50 years that you lived through and covered and edited while at the Washington Post, Let's turn to the 2000 Election. Bush v. Gore Here is what The now late Tim Russert said he at the time was Thewalters Bureau chief for NBC News about that election and the recount. I thought the election of 2000 president election will be the biggest threat ever cover until September 11th. That was an amazing night. I talked about the grease board and trying to make sense Electoral college. We stayed up all night and then the next morning on the Today show without any rest and reported all day long. We thought it would be concluded by the end of the second day. Well went on for 35 36 days. I'm often asked about my memories of that period. My own son asked me what my most complete memory was. And I think it was at the end when the Florida Supreme Court said what's start counting again full statewide recount, and Democrats and Republicans picked up their pens and pick up the ballots in starting county in a few days later, the United States Supreme Court said stop Time's up, and Democrats and Republicans dropped their pens and drop the balance. And both times they obeyed the order of the court. If you were course supporter you were outraged Bush supporter you related final outcome, but I thought, where else in the world with this resolved by the order of the court has opposed the tanks rolling down the street and soldiers with bayonets. That from Tim Russert of NBC News. He, of course passed away back in 2008. And there are some that say, we could see parallels in 2020 to what we saw in 2000. Bush v. Gore, maybe even more. So, Yes, I think that's that's entirely possible, obviously, depending upon how the vote shapes out, in part because Unlike in 2000 there, there will be many more ballots to cover to count rather, after election Day, because of all the mail in ballots around the country and because and then there'll be questions about that counting because of the issues that the president is raise false issues about the validity of mail in voting, which is much more now than there was back into back in 2000. And that Ah, among other things, That means that not just that just the American people need to be patient on election night if the elections unresolved at Nigeria last days or weeks after that to counted, But so so does the news media. We were completely unprepared in 2000 for what was gonna happen in the book I write about how to 30 A. M. I was standing near the national desk with the up Until that point, All editions of The Washington Post had a nun resolve election, But we are being told that Gore was about to concede Teo to Bush..

"Bad and it's I think it's sad. It's sad in a lot of great. It's And you know things you just never know how history is GonNa unfold you all kinds of little details along the way that have created the past that This whole thing has traveled. And and it's not gone the right way and it's not a good way if you're a racing person and that goes like in a very general sense specifically all the reason people around this area. You know people that I've gotten to know over time that You know every every jurisdiction has its community and that community often populated with families and people who are invested in this in a very deep light sort of way where it's not just their work but there of a key planking their very existence for generations and those are pretty much the stalwarts of the racing community and there are plenty of those because Chicago Racing History. So rich And that's been. Those routes have been withering for a long time and now they're in danger of like they're not landscaping bear on the skulk. Lately I shouldn't say it that way because I mean you could see a world in which Hawthorne Really Step Forward and had some pretty good racing and raise me. I mean they're facility. Obviously is nothing like their location is much different. And I'm not condemning them for that and right now they're looking like the track that interested in racing. I mean all of that is contingent upon the fact that they can get a casino. I mean I don't think that if they I don't think that if they weren't given the opportunity to open casino they would behave the same way. Maybe I'm wrong. I just don't know that. We have the wherewithal and sure it's based on those sorts of financial considerations but all that being said Their posture at the at the I. R. Meeting couldn't have been more different than Arlington's they're doing all the things that you would love or at least saying they're doing maybe doing more than they said but from the testimony that we heard. Hawthorne's position is one that you would've loved to. Cro hinton inhabit in that they have like they're on top of it all the time they're in the deep discussions with all the authorities. They have all their protocols in place. They're acting like attracts at wants to have racing POSCO And even without spectators even add some financial carol and sure to have something that they're working toward that will benefit them. It's not racing in the casino but Still they're doing that in and I don't want to pretend like there won't be racing in Chicago. There's another key from all appearances.

"Come up with an official statement that the Executive Director McCaffrey read at the at the meeting and they had three they. They asked the board to Demand three things in One to commit to running at least thirty days To to do away with all open stakes racist so the money could be dedicated to regular overnight and three to give a thirty day. Notice third habit therapy a period where the staples and all training facilities. Where Open before? The meat started that those were there. They ask the the board to require that a volunteer. But that I mean that didn't even so that was read into the record then wasn't even addressed again at the meeting. What the meeting ended up doing Steve. Just just summarizes kick the can down the road Mccall the Thomas Macaulay the Oak Park Attorney. Who He referenced earlier. He's both more than anybody else At the meeting in this but I mean to say nothing of the Board itself he was and he. He has been taken a prominent position in the past although he was strangely subdued at the April meeting for whatever reason But he he quest he you know he had some pretty strong lines of questioning for Arlington and near the end of the meeting he proposed also that they could even the board could meet again before their regularly scheduled June twenty third of what whatever it is eating because there's the hope that Tim O. T. B.'s will come online Earlier than that like around the first of June so I guess that's the essence of it is once there is more material to discuss. Maybe they should meet quickly to To get there to wrap nine around what they're working with instead of trying to figure out what they might be working with which is where things kind of stand but I mean the real question is for whatever it's worth it like there's this concept of Darko status. That means that if you're the host track all the time cast betting that goes on while there's not a live the dark host track which is assigned at the dates awards meeting of the. Ira THEY GET to collect most of the revenue from the simulcast. So what if you're running alive meet than you are back to get that status? But now we're in a situation where track is running me but not running racist so if you're not gonNA commit to running this year this summer you know there's GonNa be a movement to switch the dark host money starting immediately to halt on which has already committed to running a fall thoroughbred need even. If it's not very much money this.

Come from the governor's office and a you know Cook County and even more Chicago which doesn't affect Hawthorne were Arlington Concerned About in Chicago. But just speaking of that. Tightening rings of restrictions are even more restrictive in What's permissible so there's the There's that influencing the slowness of Of getting expect contract Hawthorne was conducting at Stanford Meat when they were forced to cease operations but Obviously hadn't kind accepting horses and so they.

Because there was no winter spring Hawthorne meet at they were readying their facility for four casino instruction and said that would inhibit thoroughbred fading away when impact having harness races horses around or shipping in. So that's why they didn't have a Britain did conduct Stanford bread meat and that's why More Chicago Horse people shipped over the winter. That would have been standard so Yeah everything is in limbo right now. in says that they have People health officials expressed concern about and the Human Caregiver population accompanying coming back to the table from so many disparate areas in one small space and day Said they testified this board meeting on Friday that they had some idiot. Proposals Across the board Steep County Boko municipality for conducting racing season but the big kicker. There is their proposals if they submitted involved Raising with spectators right. We didn't no one has even come close to broaching possibility in North America yet. Much less thing. That's the it's the their Basically season hinges upon having spectators that there was testimony at this meeting that it was not financially viable or the tractor conduct a spectator. Free Me Just You know you can see where that the dynamic is different here because there's not There are not. There's not a subsidy for making money. The way has in most jurisdictions they cut for necks excluded. But handle. There's so much bigger than here. So they get a little supplemental money from Department of Agriculture in the form of Illinois owners works which are likely not be funded at the same level of given the budgetary constraints the only state government right now. But it's not like there's a revenue stream that I mean I that's spigot has been turned off because of closures since Shut down in March and early April. Whatever until all tracks are the face of the different news trucks but they had passed? Money Accumulated and the And the assumption that TAP will be turned back at least to some extent whereas Chicago. Whatever money the money the person who's GonNa beat derived bedding and You know the tracks gets pittance of a bet made out of state you know off track without fans there in debt aren't team itself makes a lot of money from its conception that they do get crowds during the summer frequent the more partner we can and I would assume that their business models in to a great extent predicates down at and it's going to be difficult for them to get to the place they need so you can in no way understand where they would be coming from that different than Both jurisdictions in North Dakota while the in. Yes if you don't even if you have to scrap together some sort of compromise to meet with Perth levels. No one's happy about and situation that far far far from ideal I mean is that you continue to keep the circuit so that you have product so you still have a group of force me who are going to inhabit the circuit and and make owned be the the Amick for future seasons And I think the concern is that there is not that doesn't seem to part of their approach and I not running a business and.

We're sort of nicely nestled fifteenth between the The White Mountains and the adirondacks between Vermont and New York but as I detail many times that this is this is a village that loves a parade last night at some point I said to Tina. I said boy. There's not gonNA be a parade for years. I've laughed about the parades about how there's you know. I for a village of two thousand people to have about. Eleven parades a year a little over the top. But I'M GONNA MISS IT. Today for sure. One of the one of the real pleasures actually thinking about it.

They've got bags of Candy and they throw candy on your lawn and you're you know you're you're finding pieces of swell and double bubble for for weeks and jolly ranchers engro a jolly rancher tree in your front lawn. I'm making light. But of course honoring just all the men and women that animals that gave their lives. Put up a picture this morning of Cave Hill and Louisville and for those that are going to get at some point a chance to visit Louisville for for Derby and anything else Cave Hill National Cemetery. There's big swats for military and it's moving and and one of the most incredible the memorial parks in in all at all market so thinking Today and given that it's going to be a subdued memorial day across the country Makes it that much more? Poignant for everybody to think about those that gave their lives. We had I thought a terrific weekend of racing. We're going to hit on a bunch of things today with an eye toward the Monday holiday racing. And you know you know given where we are as racetrack start adding in To the the jurisdiction landscape. We've got quite a bit today. And of course set the NITA being the the the real major focus with great one action Looking forward to looking forward to look at these races. The shoemaker came up very good as did the gamely. And you've also got the companion turf sprint. The Monrovia which offers the the male counterpart to Saturday's Daytona and in fact just on that topic to talk to Doug O'Neill the end of the show for the you'll recall that doug was really high on while. Man Jack and this is this is a serious source on the on. The turf sprint seen The whole weekend offered you know one either attorney. That's a big subplot. I thought everything we saw Particularly on Saturday The the five stakes Churchill. I mean obviously we had the two graded stakes with the the wittingham which was for smallish. Field ended up with quite a bit of action. Including kind of kind of ticky tack. Take down the Rock Emperor. Think discussed that at some point but between Max fields performance in the Matt Win. And we'll talk to Brendon Walsh and our to McAfee fields come back. That was just one of four amazingly and in fact anti sterling and last night I was talking to Andy and we said you know tomorrow. You'll be with us tomorrow of course and got more Fox coverage today. America's Day at the Racing Merica Day date the races. And here's here's the four winners of the stakes at Churchill on Saturday starting with don borrowed and in fact then followed up immediately by sharing the two of them were gone two hundred days two hundred days so seven months essentially coming out of breeders cups and Dunbar road ran terrific and had you know had some things to deal with Max Field who will obviously get to but Dunbar road two hundred and three days off sharing two hundred and four days off and I thought it was was just tremendous grab ocean will join us near the top of our three and talk about the sports town Philly Who was a certain point kind of watched? And and if you're keeping an eye on her in particular alms took all the money and which. I thought that was a little strange. Just because of the fourteen hole in and it seemed like alms had the trickier of the assignments in a fourteen. What ended up being a thirteen horse field after scratch and Sharing Manny? Franko doing a nice job and having in prime position. wasn't afraid to lose ground being a little bit wide and just just a terrific comeback and we'll get we'll get grams thoughts. Dunbar waited and came with her run. Owen Dale away since the end of November and made it three in a row in terms of comeback irs making Successful return the Clark winner. could not have been couldn't made it more exciting with that the late the late move we've gotten used to floors ru going forward Dale Not a horse that you've -sarily going forward with hundred and seventy six days away for him and that got us to Max Field. Two hundred and thirty one days on the sidelines and of course forced to miss the Breeders Cup and patients and everything. We talked about Going into the weekend when it came to what appeared to be a high confidence level from Brendon. Walsh and every reason to be confident and Max fields effort after breaking well. Everybody was so worried about the. You know the him breaking and and so forth despite breaking well ended up kind of in a scrum shuffled back and allowed to settle by Jose Ortiz. Who obviously wanted to be involved? And that was one of the you know the elements of your your decision making on Max `field and I it just after the gate work which we talked about quite a bit on on Friday going in Max field. I thought acquitted himself just just fabulously. He's given away plenty of experience only his third career start and got to be very excited. figure wise ninety five buyer and from that from that evaluation method of a perfect launching point going forward very anxious to hear from Brendon. About what the team at Godolphin and he are thinking about how much time. How do you not you know? Give the Belmont heavy consideration. I it just seems That I suppose the the configuration. We'll aspirin the the one turn mile at does that factor. It is that an issue for him terrific comeback performance from the field and the only horse that That wasn't coming off a lengthy lay-off smooth straight. We're GonNa Talk to Michael McCarthy Michael Seemingly hitting on all cylinders we'll catch up with him comes out of the the Pasadena I mean it was. There was a layoff line with the end of February. But not not to the extent that everybody else previously in the in the stakes Had had fashioned and smooth like straight to just eighty four days so almost the ninety day layoff just shy of ninety days. It was a fun fun afternoon. I thought at the Churchill. I was really focused.

acting like it's only well let it go away you want to come to giant Dodgers do I'm gonna be extremely political and I'm gonna go ahead and reject this whole kind of cool Bayat a political he's got to get yeah whatever duties got a good arm and I use I I use yes yelp week I don't want him on the giants level is down to as we said earlier in the show here's we're doing what we're pulling back you're going macro yes the tallest Bumgarner out we in what are we doing here that's the line no no that's the line a compared to some of Bob Dylan stuff that's going through this wrenching yeah how much do we buy this guy's report well there you go one Francis from the way it doesn't matter a coach and also should be a factor that nobody including Murphy knows who the hell generally like small like you could throw a lot of weird names of birth of noticed over the years ago yeah that guy Indianapolis yeah I met him back in the day like this guy you like I've no idea who he is the funny thing was I was asking crook about it he was like you're showing didn't really know anything about it now Paul Solman cement pads in my territory you work who you work for who is this guy his Twitter bio didn't even say where you're working just in Major League Baseball writer I might actually have something to my theory that this guy moonlights as an adult film star right could very well on the name what is yeah that doesn't sound like his name is the first name of his dog in his in the street he lived on and I was supposed to be all right yes Hey Joe Staley is the story and we told you guys we got it listen we we we did barrow's we did Whitner if we had some really fun breaking down I gotta tell ya I mean I'd be the first to you know I'd be the first to tell you guys if I didn't like the Niners are doing and I know the Buckner trade was controversial but man it looks like they are it looks like they've done a nice job of bouncing back from that I mean I was a kid the only worry about Kim laws the knees and I hate to even bring that up but because sometimes he looks great on film with any he looks better like if people compare to Solomon Thomas he looks better on film and Solomon Thomas ever did in my opinion okay I like I like it people like Osama's where is he yeah well he's going to get a ship for insulin Thomas's problems where he got drafted that's his problem if you look at yeah I did take up a little bit of moisture yeah the end of the season I think he'll get he's gonna have his opportunity now I mean if you can ever make a big contribution we'll see he's not gonna make it he's just going to be he was in in this one goes on Lynch was Lynch's first draft we kind of just fell back to a safety blanket of Stanford guy he knew yeah you know he was like I'm gonna take my for it's like you know sometimes you see there's a little league draft you know I'm gonna take this kid because I am I know his dad you know this is like a so he took Sally Thomas because it was a really safe pick in terms of the character of the guy you know but it was the wrong pick in that spot so Hey listen to me people make mistakes that should the bears traded up to get Trubisky I mean you know I mean they took Trubisky ahead of Solomon Thomas you know so we'll see so guys make mistakes at least Thomas is playing a little bit you know he'll play but he's playing more like he he's more like he's playing like a third fourth round guy than a than a number three overall GAC the meantime let's let's go back to the positives and Joe Staley and if this is one of the most fun guys to ever come through the nine a locker room really honestly maybe the most fun it kills the only guy I think I can compare I mean that in a poly in the eighties I mean they didn't have guys as wacky as Joe Staley the only guy you could compare to but it was always in the slightly dangerous way I thought compare because you can always do also stressing about it was Russ Francis would write kind of contract it worked well it wasn't like in a loving way was like in a way like this guy thinks he's flying his plane to Minnesota after practice right worried about right now so Staley's one of its most fun things is is karaoke moments over the years and markets went and found a bunch of them and given that it's a music Monday saying music Monday theme because we already had Nick to terracing and human nature and we already had Deebo Samuel saying well you know not dissolved we're going to keep on the theme and enroll some Staley karaoke out for fun on a Monday morning so here's a Joe Staley at the first entry is Joe and Jimmy G. C. sing in some Marvin Gaye zero let's take a listen Hey no mountain high Hey no vacillated low you know revoked I don't know if if you need me call me no matter where you are no matter how far by a bad Staley knows the secret to this daily have a secret to a good vocal likes daily just proved right there you got a fully commit which he did any true Jimmy G. out you can tell ME Jimmy probably wouldn't gone forty still had laid the groundwork all right entry number two in the juice daily karaoke tribute is epic this is called a rapping it's it's a wrap he made for Jim Tomsula on his own it's it's it's it's Joe Staley custom Jim Tomsula rap ten seconds sounds Jimmy Johnson open the massart Jimmy Johnson the gold chain on legitimate Tomsula well that's pretty good that's maybe the most so far there's a little bit of like I think a beat there that they could produce that Jim Thompson like I'm already like it in my head she wanted to do how about the great leader too you got your shirt open lack Thomas the schools in the Tony Montana.
