I got up to doing a half. Ironman was along. Just were the person who would hide in the woods during the cross practice in high school. Because i hated to run them. I know really what he taught me.

Really yep and it sucks because this is a track that he would shine out of course right so knowing that. Jt who else do you like. In four fifty non non all stars. This class is really difficult I don't know what to do with grant harlan. Because he's been hurt so i don't know where he comes in at If he looks getting practice. I'd probably take a flyer on just based off of last season. He wrote the four fifty really well. But i think that takes her tough when i look at this class I mean you're like you go with a guy like runkel like at a nine. I don't think there's a ton of value there. No i agree. Yeah i probably go. Cody shocked because i i genuinely think he's a top twelve guy moto moto out right now So at a at a four their value if puts inamoto ikey did at butts creek at a seventh. And you get a ton of points and just one moto loan But i i think this class has gotten really challenging based off of injuries and based off of just the guys that you would typically go to the rod bells and those guys dave their values been depleted. Because they've done well lately. So i'm at a loss. I think there are picked. You're going to have to look at like miranda to sixteen. He's been riding a lot but you know his results haven't been our outdoors so it's not like he's a shoo-in by any means But there are not a lot of great. Fix the jump off the page in the class. So do you go a little bit safer Try to go guys like heart raft and guys like that which the upside knock great. You know even though i can answer I don't know and there's just not incredible value when you look at these picks and i had a to. I guess if you're if you're gonna lean on the class being thin and he should be somewhere between eight and twelve. But you're i mean now you're counting on like a you know fifty burgers like the upside for you or you know maybe sixty i dunno i just. I'm struggling with class right now. Paul you have jason kessler. Pick somebody i have made a note of. He had a crappy buds. But he's from michigan. I read bud ie ironman. Just yeah Like i mentioned before. I sponsor jas. We're we're buddies He had a crash in the first. Tourney budd's creek in a slight concussion. Just kinda dizzy and decide to pack it in for the day. He's been writing. He's totally fine.

"I'm your host alley feller. And every week. I talk with people who are doing cool things on the run and beyond we all share that love for running and that's what brings us all together but of course there is more to life than what happens on the run itself. This show is about the in betweens. The water stops. The bathroom breaks the moments in decisions but if shaped who we are today and the wise. Why do we do what we do. And how does getting sweaty factor. I have such a special episode for you today. I thought it might be nice to take a break from all things professional running this week. The olympic track and field trials are in full force and so while the crows are off running laps of the track at hayward field. I have a hefty dose of inspiration for you right here. Courtesy of brothers brent. And kyle ps frightened kyle live by the motto where there's a real there's a way kyle was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a child but in the peace family that was not going to be something that held him back. He would do everything his brother's dead. And in most cases he didn't even more competitively. You will hear all about kyle's in competitive spirit in this conversation. So when his older brother brent completed his first ironman triathlon. Kyle's response was can people in wheelchairs do that today. Brent and kyle are both ironman finishers. They even competed together at the ironman world championships in kona. They compete as a duo team in triathlons and marathons around the country and needless to say the crowds. Go absolutely wild for them. They're also the founders of the kyle. Ps foundation can learn more about the foundation. And see all the different ways you can get involved at. Kyle appease foundation dot org. I- i committed to volunteering and pushing a chair at an upcoming event so common join us. It's going to be amazing. I could've talked to these guys hours.

Balancing Being a Dad and an Ironman Triathlete With Russell Newell

"I would ask you how you juggle fatherhood and training but you make it very clear in the book that you seem to train very little for your events. I mean at one point you describe twelve mile run as your long training run for the season and later on you suggest that you sometimes run quote unquote only sixty miles during an arm training cycle. So i wanna i over know how much of this is sandbagging. And how much is true. And wherever the truth lies how do you manage the demands of helping raise young kids and swimming biking running. Yeah well my friends all teased that. I don't do any training. But i do. I've said this you can't have you can't go. Half-hearted into an iron them you have to you have to train or you'll you won't finish or you'll be you'll being a lot of pain anyway but you'll be an excruciating pain and i don't know how anyone could do it without training. I will say this year. I'm a little bit nervous. Because i have not my longest run. So far is thirteen miles and my longest bike is thirty. And that's not enough. I have been doing a lot of weight training. So i have a trainer and i found for past bones. That weight training in court training really helps in aerobic training. And that's early in the morning in my basement but that's an ideal a stationary bike at home in the basement early in the morning or when the kids are in bed and you find little pockets of time but it's not the same as going out for five or six hour bike ride to replicate what's going to happen in the ironman and it's not the same as doing in eighteen or twenty mile. Run to get your legs. Ready for an ironman. So it's it's going to be really interesting. The more kids. I've gotten the less i've been able to train through. The years somehow seemed to make it through. But i don't do as well as i'd like to do. But that's that's the ballots.

Two days away and i did a total of three miles running and did the race and tried to keep up with her and she was really fast and that was a bad idea kept up a couple of miles and then headed staggered the rest of the way but something about that must have hooked me because it was it was really interesting and then my friend jim kane who's featured quite prominently in the book started running marathons to beheld the.

Let me just start by saying that. I was raised by very politically progressive parents. And i was born in fifty three and we have loads of relatives in israel and distant relatives killed in the holocaust. It heads though. It was a big part of my education as a young boy was learning about the holocaust and just trying to understand how people could do those things to other people and how the national is actually a lot stronger than the rational or sadly. We've seen that in american politics recently to and so it just was. My family was well off. My dad was a doctor in my mom was a teacher. My grandparents on one side were very poor renna bookstore but my other grandparents were successful business people and and so. I had the sense that i shouldn't be paying attention to when i like to call a deeper threats now then just food and shelter and so that was just part of my very early upbringing. And then i was a young boy during the cuban missile crisis and we would be taught to duck and cover case. The bombs went off. And you know that wasn't very reassuring so you come to the us biden.

Coming out SOBER With Mark A. Turnipseed

"I'm so excited to introduce our guest to you today. This is going to be a good one and this is actually an angle. I've wanted to tackle on this podcast for a while. So i was really grateful when mark reached out to me and was interested in coming on. I am not going to try to introduce him myself. Because you know. I will butcher it. So let me say mark. Thank you so much for joining us today and coming on the show with me. Why don't you take a minute and let everybody know who you are in a little bit about you. Thank you angela. And i appreciate you having me on. my name is mark turnip. Everybody and i am the recent author of my suicide race winning over the trauma of addiction recovery and coming out basically that book tells my story of recovery and my childhood and oeste maids coming out. I did so through this process of going to do a ironman triathlon so over the course of three years i trained for an ironman triathlon. After a series of relapses and throughout that process my story get more fruitful and there began to be more things that i could share with other people so i started blogging about it and then people were like you need to turn us into book so then i started writing into book while all this introspection all this work which is similar. Most people do this in recovery alone. But i wasn't. I like recovery alone. Didn't actually pull me into it that much and so actually engaging with an audience in the blogging. i've got to do a whole bunch of introspection. By the end of me writing the book. I realized that i had to confront my final biggest fear that had been holding me back and causing me to relapse over and over and over again and that was to finally embrace my sexuality and who i was since i was six years old and who i had been denying that my whole life basically.

And you're like recently i actually show people some those old promos and it was just like it was magical man like something else going on aren't almost believed that something was was up with this guy. He's not going to be able to just go out like a media vet the creepy music and the the and you'd be solved classical music that calm them down for sure. Sure but i don't. I don't know i feel like that. Rejang cactus cactus. Because i feel like that mankind would just amongst all these personalities he might just fade to the back a little bit too much Not not be seen as like a spectacle in that moment So that's why. I mean i i love him but i just feel i feel like in in the survivor series type of matchup with all of these other. Like pantheon of champions type of people's i don't i don't know if he would feel like he fade back a little bit more than like a like bang. Bang you know. He's he's gonna he's gonna get the crowd jumping in wanting him to win. And that's that's kind of the way that i would. I would book things up to their with. I kind of witton. Put the rockin I i i'd leave the rock out because the rock book him somewhere else on the pay per view i don't think he'd gut put them into that Who would put. I'd put Wwe jericho i'd put jerk on the wwe side because when he was in wwafl already established as like a like this guy's a rockstar. This guy he's got he's got what it takes like the way. He debuted and beating also beating stone cold and beating the rock. Like just becoming that. I would i would have. Wwe jericho not wcw And i'd have him go. I'd haven't go like incredible. I'd say like a incredible five minutes with milenko dude at have him and milenko a knock down drag out to really bring stuff down to like. This is wrestling So i think that leaves me with two other people left on the wwe Three hundred okay. Jericho safaa x. Jericho sh- odd dude. Seth rollins put seth in their set with bill would built eat necessary against whoever whoever's in time and he would also be able to go. Just just post the post with anybody in this match Eddie guerrero are putting their eddie and said i feel like once in. Can you imagine them this tagging back and forth and just working working the linka work at. We're meant to be just an incredible incredible. I yeah you could easily you could sail sutton and rican eddie. Guerrero would just tear the house down. And then i put stone cold just to just to kill it like just capital up his stone cold. I mean between him and vince mcmahon. I feel like they they. They made something bigger than wrestling happen. They they took things to another level when it came to just like getting people out of their seats and realizing what a spectacle this stuff could even before that it was. Don't get me wrong but like it just got the common man involved so much stone. Coal would just like blow these funding soft. I've been watching by third down.

It's it's one of those questions and this is something that i've been wanting to ask pretty much every wrestling fan face to face. Do you see that. It's not a wwe problem. It's a you have so many people and there are you know we're we're not perfect. They're mistakes that are going to be made all we starting to see that it's not a ww problem. It's a just any employment problem. The best person for the job is not necessarily going to be at the top of the card. Yes i think so. And i feel like w w worked so much better if they did a booking style does yeah rustler's every other week for sure or or doesn't work. More shows will not even more shows and exceeds one show a week but they have such dev rows do that one week. Your main event is damian. Priest debts loomis than another week. It's been our versus the guy for the title know how to alternate their roster and keep it where everything seemed fresh and big. But that's that's that's also one of those things that that where we came from that you know like like. That's how raw used to be. You wouldn't see macho man for like weeks men. He went wrestletalk weeks and he was still he was still on commentary. Now and then you'd still come out for like an gotta do that. That's that's the way you get exact were. These showed up for promo in pay per view. And that's the way you keep people specialists well narratives and yeah. I just is the easy thing to do. Is just to blame vince. You know i i. It's the easy way out I think a good example of everyone cried about you. Know rousseff is a very good example. Auden using the do this. Have you watched he. W exactly not very good isn't being okay.

It's like me going into like a country western bar trying to sell my rap music like yay. Are you going to gain many fans. You might still gain some not saying everybody who listened to country country. Music doesn't like rap. But i'm saying like you gotta pick your spots student and if you're trying to pick up viewers from a place that like they they're the the main reason are watching this because it's just not wwe and then you got a bunch of like x.

I think i think after a long conference with tnt management aws figured out that they're not gaining any viewers. They figured out that they're they're dead in the mud. It not dead like how much it's the same one point. Five billion numbers shared between w every week one to the other but as one point one million people that i am so against like i. I bought that dude for that reason. I got tired of like the ratings rating truth because they don't count everyone this which in the uk and we got on cable. I watch of mighty they. I don't count as of your people that watch on the network on county it you know you know the biggest the biggest problem with the ratings. I'll tell you what the biggest problem with the ratings is right now if you guys want to hear it. The biggest problem with ratings is me and every single other person who has ever came in my chat. That i've ever asked this question have never been part of the nielsen ratings. We've never had the box. We'd never been counted and this is. This is a person who literally streams ten to twelve hours a day of wrestling content. Who has never been counted as a person who watches wrestling. So it's like if my view doesn't count. I don't care just don't care about any of that stuff. But it's it's a nice. It's a nice barometer. But like dairy lips you probably never been counted gio. You probably never honoured. You'd never counted on that on the uk tv. So so the ratings are like. You're literally telling me people matter while. I don't like like if i don't count and i'm like one of the more stared steadfast. I won't say on the biggest fan. But like i own. I own t shirts have been to live shows..

I feel like there should be like a of wrestlers association and if they don't wanna go to bat if they don't want to play ball if something is often they want to renegotiate their contracts to get To get switched to be part of what they do then for the time they're negotiating wanna come play ball they wanna walk out through the lockout. Whatever then you have all these other wrestlers who are ready to go. You got all these other wrestlers who are just two or five. Live there waiting for their break. Can you imagine if you're signing. Wwe of made over the roster is bar none the best restaurants planet but it but it's like new japan. Let's their people like just go. Go go you know. They him do everything they can. But you got people like drulak just just waiting in catering and i guarantee you if somebody like Aj styles doesn't want to show up because he wants to do twitch than i guarantee you drulak is gonna give you a great performance. There people just waiting to do it. Yeah yeah of course i. Yeah but yeah. I do to get it and we well. We've we've been rattling. We almost there was a pay per view this week. Oh god let's go. We can keep going next wwl. Am good. I just wanted to make sure that we did touch on the fact that there was a pay per view this week and let me ask. Children questioning of all the Cooperation of new japan. A tna important. Sorry i wanted to get to that from that. So first of all what do you. What do you make from as a wrestling fan of older collaboration. That impact in aws do now. Do you think it's good bad. Only good for one really good question. Though with the collaborations. I feel like if they don't have a long term plan involved than it becomes it becomes a weird free for all. It's like. okay. Let's say derelict's has got his own his own universe and gio has his own universe and then he's got his own universe. And then i say hey jill. Would you like to come on over and be part of my universe says sure and then hey you can bring your top champion cool and then and then i'm like dairy. Let's say you wanna bring your your top champion then you to cool now. And that's that's the only thing we have planned out and then a month later on booking top champ versus your top champ okay. That seems cool but then what happens if your top twins my championship. now now. now we're thinking like okay. So how do we didn't. They announced a champion vs champion. A they've been there they've been there especially with what happened at sacrifice. We're already here it. Because there's no way rich. Want beating him And and then on top of that. finley and In aren't twelve champions. David juice juice robinson. Yeah they won. They won the titles. Long way. Being an end i like him. I like him too. But i just i think he got into this thinking. This is going to help us. I don't think is long term short helping them because because what's happening is thinking helps with promotional for them because now when they show up. Let's say in new japan with those tag belts is gonna make people wanna watch. Cnn how they got those tag belts. Evan how many people are keys. How are they going to really do that exactly exactly..

"That's that's a tried and true formula for for making a superstar that's larger than life and he's already got the talent. The guy beat drew mcintyre at takeover. Andrade is no joke and he's been portrayed that way It's just like how do you get him to to have an audience on his side. And in today's day and age. I feel like public outrage and and cancel culture and all this stuff is become a weapon that you can use very easily by just predicting what people are going to say. And they're so they can just utilize that to create superstars now and it actually worked so culture as a story. Almost exactly exactly you can use. Of course you're outraged. The guys you said like when austin was kicking off it was late night as it was definitely been drinking. Advise against the machine kind of lease. The punk stuff was a perfect time for that. Yeah i mean. I can see it because again like the guy's got the talent you just have to have a way to bring it back. It's not the emag people care to make people care about them. And if he can't cut promos if he if he doesn't have zelina vega anymore. How do you get a guy over who can't cut promos. That doesn't have a a a a like tangible of way to deliver a storyline. While he's not on tv you just make people respect him and and you make yourself the you vilify yourself. Make him the good guy and when he comes back. It's over. He's just everyone's always back. Well let's go. This is our guy he come back. And just be mr charlotte flat and then also and then also think about and then also think about this. Think about all the people who watch. Wwe begrudgingly who were just like all. Let's see how they mess up tonight or house bragging suck how smackdown gonna suck like. There are a lot of people like that dude. I come across them day long. When i'm doing my livestreams. There are people who are just negative on the product. they're always about. Oh vance when van sties. And i'm like men really. Who's the bad guy. Here talking about vince. Dying like you got it like if you think about it like this. They are actually getting people who normally wouldn't care about andrade at all to care about him because he's just he's just against what they don't like he's against ww gonna tune in to see how he sticks it to them or how how. He's the hero now because he tried to leave. It's a perfect plot that that actually doesn't even need on screen time to develop True that that's why. I wanted to ask you that question because there's so much of what's going on in wrestling today that that you could tell they don't have to invest so much to make it work. Dan boot what you're saying this whole pool of finger on the pulse disprove thing each week. Oh yeah perfect everybody perfect. It's going to be the week. He'll be back. He's going to be the week exactly. They're speculating and they're they're putting together puzzles. They're like look it up old older.

I don't really follow her that much but like she helped a lot to during this silence performance center era for the first like half of the pandemic she was she was so necessary. So it's it's it wasn't just the hurt business and stuff but my goodness they they really like. Capped it off exactly. I made a bro andrew. Gaza attention heck. Yeah boston fairy to attention again. That she did do some good work see and it was so difficult like they had to keep changing that who was not because of stomach like know. She managed to keep that thing going quite smoothly. Yeah that's a good thing that we're gonna be Hopefully talking about andrade a little bit here to as well. Yes we gotta get to. That can get. We got from. Zelina vega seems to make sense so andrade has reportedly lost. Monday requested his release segues babies. Those segues you. You can tell you do this. Quite easy goes on He requested his release. That hasn't been any other word other than he's requested since seed anything but from what i was told us it was actually denied. I oh no okay. So what do they do with him. One of new charlotte's though they gotta keep him walk down so why do think i don't get is andrade. Is some talented good. If you go back from annexed food away through you know. Even if he didn't watch your team that andrade mysterious stuff watch them go. After every week. I was engaged with those matches every week. I would fight anytime. Same as alastair black buddy murphy for me didn't bother me times. You put that. On the god. I would watch that match. You know no legitimately. Yeah so what do you think. What do you think they do. I can't see because of the charlotte. flare factor. i can't see them letting him leave. Okay this is where this is where it gets really interesting for me like a. It's all it's all been interesting so far but this is where we start getting into those like four d. chest type of things now now. This is a prime example of like you want to have him come back hot. You want you want to actually have people care. Because they brought him back could a match with umberto on on raw. Whatever it's not. are you just call. Say we need. We need oh yeah. He's he's wreaking buffs heck. Now he's not to five eighty moore's own duties. He's up at that show. He's like i don't wanna ever show up there anymore. It's a good good. There's gains weight so this is like i said forty chest now. How do you bring back on friday and make an extra suits. Just stupendous splash with this guy. How do you do. Do you have just come back in fight. Umberto again or have you know. Put on put on a okay to great match with jeff. Hardy been missing a lot recently as well Like what do you do..

Every wrestler is that there are some times where it's just not your time and this is just not the time for him to be main eventing wrestlemainia.

I would hope it's like a like a triple threat or something because i could just hear and see the the outcry and just the the people that own never gonna world's goodly put schumer's and him him also saying that he's i can't draw not a draw.

Cute money like it. I like it. I like it. That's a good idea actually nine after mania. He's such a good idea and with their be. Will they be fans in everything off. The wrestlemainia is that's a good question. While i like doing fans investor mania but after that they have fans in roar and smackdown by limited one of two ways. Let's say this drew versus lashley. If drew wisdom tanner back brock's going to be angry because he basically never got a never got his rematch against the guy that eliminated from the rumble in the first place. And then if it's less nerds Lashley it's going to be you know who's the bigger the power guys doing and you know what they told that. All the way hashtag. And that was what's trending off. That actually won. The instantly was lashley less now. More than then people make it happen and see people hate brought coming back. There's a lot of talk about people would be accepted for. yeah lashley. There is literally the match. I've wanted to see actually syncing. Come back i it's perkins perfect especially because three second deals. I'm okay with it. Yeah 'cause there'll be some stuff and you know if you look at record actually probably has the record like on the outside of. Wwe is a dangerous man. You know dangerous.

China's Starring Role in Hollywood

"So what does china have to do with hollywood. So this is a particularly important year for the china. Hollywood relationship because this is the year that the chinese box office is expected to surpass the american box office as the most important box office in the world. This is james taker. He's the deputy director for free expression research and policy pen america and the author of the pen. America report made in hollywood censored by beijing now to get access to that box office. Any movie studio in this includes hollywood has go through. A regulatory process set up by beijing. Set up by the chinese government. The is that this regulatory process includes censorship that compliance with china censorship model is a prerequisite to entering the chinese market. So what we've seen. Increasingly is hollywood studios firstly complying with the censorship and editing or altering or removing content that chinese central subject to but increasingly. We're seeing more proactive. Compliance anticipatory compliance. And a self censorship basically removing things that studios even suspect will upset the chinese sensor and beyond that sort of working more actively with chinese censors and chinese government officials to include portrayals of china or to include portrayals at the chinese government particularly likes within their movies in many cases altered content only affects the versions that are sent to theaters in china but in other cases these changes are included in the global release to meaning that american audiences and audiences all over. The world are sometimes watching propaganda without even knowing it it shocking when you think about it for a second and seems to undermine a lot of what hollywood stands for. So why are they doing it. Hollywood studios like any other foreign studios in this situation really have significant economic imperatives to cooperate with this chinese model censorship in order to get into the country and this is perhaps most pronounced when we look at hollywood's. Biggest movies the blockbusters the movies that everyone sees you know movies like iron man. Three where china's sensors were actually invited to the set to kind of see what was going on every city further released way back in two thousand thirteen ironman three grossed one point two billion worldwide of that it made four hundred and nine million domestically and one hundred and twenty one million in china. That's a huge chunk of change and the proportion of prophets coming from china continues to grow. There is a quota system. That is in place where the chinese government will allow up to thirty four movies from outside the country. Technically they can bend the rules on this little bit but usually the numbers thirty four. Many of these spots are obtained by hollywood studios. With their biggest blockbusters and access or lack thereof to the chinese market for these big big movies can literally make or break the profitability of certain. Hollywood movie in two thousand nine hundred nine before the pandemic caused chaos in the film industry global box office sales were worth roughly forty two point. Five billion dollars of this the. Us box office accounted for eleven point. Four billion and china's accounted for nine billion while the us was still slightly ahead it's take had fallen from twenty thousand eighteen whereas china's had continued a long trend of growth the pandemic has made it difficult to measure things accurately but many think that china's market either already has or will very soon surpass that of the us and that the trend will only become more pronounced with time and regardless china has already become essential to hollywood's bottom line especially when it comes to domestic flops. Consider the twenty sixteen film warcraft based on the video game or so it was reported just to break. Even the film needed to gross four hundred million worldwide but in the us it got panned and only brought in forty six point seven million not to fear china to the rescue because of the popularity of the video game there had the widest release of any film up to that point and pushed prophets into the green with a final total of four hundred twenty two million

Bailing it out of trouble but that batmobile sure is a gas guzzler not to mention the bat wing airplane and the electricity bill for the bat cave is probably astronomical so is all that. Do gooding really doing good. After all some researchers from stanford university presented a poster at the american geophysical union's twenty seventeen fall meeting entitled stop saving the planet carbon accounting of superheroes and their impacts on climate. Change the point of the project was to bring awareness to the fact that everybody on this planet has a carbon footprint which is a calculation of how much carbon each of us in our daily activities such as driving eating and heating and cooling our houses the average americans carbon footprint is around forty four thousand pounds that's about twenty thousand kilograms of carbon per year an average person in the united arab emirates uses a good bit more and average peruvian uses considerably less. But what about your average superhero. According to the study they're all over. The map takes superman. According to the comics the man of steel is entirely solar powered which nets him.

Sources would come in higher than the average american because of the sheer amount of tech that he uses and the flash who can run near the speed of light might require an insane number of calories to accomplish this feat possibly as much as eighty nine million pounds or forty five million kilograms worth of carbon but isn't a kind of a silly question for serious scientists to spend their time exploring poster co author miles traer a postdoctoral researcher at stanford tokyo's if i calculate my own carbon footprint that's depressing if i calculate batmans carbon footprint. That's hilarious so let's go with the hilarious. It's a way of tricking people into learning.

How To Use Goal Setting In Sales

Ag Sales Professional's Podcast by Greg Martinelli

How To Use Goal Setting In Sales

"How to use goal setting in sales the latter method versus the mountain and if you're a sales manager or CEO, you might not like the first part or something maybe the concepts of what I'm going to talk about but trust me stick with the whole podcast recording and you'll like how I finish discussion, you know any great achievement in our same career most likely started off as a goal. Maybe you went to the annual sales meeting and saw people on stage getting awards for their selling success. You decided right then to make that your goal or maybe you decided you wanted to be a manager or vice president or CEO or the company after a successful sales real? Well, these are all great reasons to set goals. How else If you don't know how your mind works those lofty dreams can crush your desire to even try but before we dig into that last sentence, let's review a few goals setting quote on some thoughts. You know, there's an old saying a journey of a Thousand Miles begins with the first step or aim for the stars or sets your size higher. I mean higher and know even higher or quit sandbagging and that's one that frequently in sales we get from our managers who want us to raise our goals success is built on a series of failures. That's a common quote out there in off the internet memes that are go around today. I want to talk about the the mountain method first cuz that's a that's the typical goal-setting Journey that we hear about and that's set off a great big goal. Think about some of the great goals that have been set forth in history. And one of the most famous was posed by President Kennedy to land on the Moon by the end of the nineteen song. She's now that was certainly an inspiring goal to set all good and great. But not all mines work the same if you're a hundred pounds overweight and you set a goal to run a marathon. I mean, if you're dead in your first week of sales and you set a goal to win president's club or if you barely know how to pack for a backyard campout and you decide you're going to climb Everest. Well, these goals can seem so far off that they will crush your dream when your ten miles into your Thousand Mile journey and your legs are killing you in the goal is going to weigh on you like a ton of bricks so much so that you would be inclined to quit and just like so many that came before you that lofty dream becomes a burden you aren't willing to carry you pass by that picture on the fridge of the six pack abs when you reach in for the six pack of beer you skip making that extra sales call as the journey to the Million Dollar Club just seems impossible. Well, that's where I want to introduce you to the lads. Method and what I found was the process of incremental goals, you can call it the ladder method or climbing the ladder of success the letters not just an analogy. It's a literal thing when it comes to reaching a long-range ultimate goal after many years of goal setting. I've had my share of successes and failures along the way early on in my journey, the ultimate goal seems to distance and the decision to turn back is really strong. Our mind needs that feeling of making progress. We have to feel like we're getting somewhere and that's where short-range goals come in. That's where these these small package mental steps. You can call them checkpoints or resting spots on the climb to the Big Goal. Well in the earlier example of the overweight individual with the marathon goal. I was actually only fifty pounds overweight and I wanted to complete an Ironman instead of a marathon with no earthly understanding if I could even achieve it my first goals were to get my weight under control and to consistently exercise. By walking well that turned into running and then biking and running and then swimming biking and running on a regular basis. And then of course six years later, I was ready for the final piece of the goal is ice pack 13 and 1/2 hours in the panhandle of Florida completing an Ironman and in the earlier example of the sales person in their first week on territory who wants to be on stage winning president's Club. It was actually the month before I went into sales and I sat there in the crowd as fifteen of the top sales people were selected for The Ultimate Sales award. I mean, they were their results wage astounding I couldn't even imagine what it took to sell that much was setting off towards that goal over the next few months. It just seemed futile. I got rejection. My numbers weren't even close. I was more worried about just being able to sell anything enough to keep my job. So that became my first goal sell something, you know, that's that's the big step on the way to the top sell something. What seemed illogical then sell enough to keep my job and that meant meeting the standard we had for supporting the cost of a salesperson and making a profit. Next goal is top third in the region. The great thing about them is is there are numerous ways to measure or look at results. We used to have a lot of fun with this one. You can measure Yourself by units by dollars by units and dollars by increase in one of those areas by new customers buy new customers within a product line. I mean the list of measuring sales success along the way is endless. Well those two Journeys winning president's club and completing an Ironman. We're life-defining moments. That means their Journey shouldn't or can't be easy. It has to seem so far off that most people will quit on it. I mean that's what really makes it. So great secret goal setting hack is to set small goals that seem easy to reach and then jump over them and set another one and another one and another one

I went trick or treating until I was twenty one years old. And those who are wake with Russell weren't you WANNA admission when you were nineteen and twenty and the answer is yes and yes, I dressed up as a Mormon missionary going door to door because I already have the cost you got free candy. It was awesome. the good old days. Anyway. I'll trick or treating Halloween love everything. In fact when my kids were born I was like this is the great thing world howling was amazing before it's even more amazing now and went trick or treating every single year until about three years ago three years ago was when I bought my Batman suit if you've seen. We lost expert secrets are Philip. Prizes to give away these Batman. At ironman suits I got my own custom fitted was so cool. And I was so excited because that is going to be Batman like legit Batman and I was in front suit and I was just so excited for it and remember it was long day at the office and got home as quick as I could and just trying to give your own the kids at wrestling practice wrestling practice and come back home and I'm getting more Reagan dinner. Kept. Race. Back. Yossi. Batman student, which is, it's like an hour long project to get that suit on I'm so excited feeding the kids battery stack to the office and also doorbell rings and go the door, and it's one of Ellie's friends and friends like, Hey, l. here my yeah wh, what are you doing here? Coming to trick Ellie has like. What? I triggered truth my kids. Runs over. Oh, by data out mcnew, you canton clutch like what am I? Triggered this is my my holiday. You can take my daughter trick or treating, and it only took off their friends she was gone and The boys got calls from their friends and we're going trick or treating and they took off. And I remember I was ache I wasn't ready for. I. Don't know it's like the kids leaving home only worse. I wasn't ready for it and I remember they were all gone and it was it was Aiden Nora? Tiny. She's to at the time. And so I didn't get my Batman suit on and they go to the car and. You got your suit on everything. Put it in a car seat. My time we got in the car she passed out. She was out cold as Aden in class we drove to this neighborhood ain't got out with started trick or treating and passed out in the car, and that was like the saddest thing my wife I missed Halloween. Comes to sitting down the kids are awesome. They have friends. For, it you know what I mean like false fake you're planning your kids are going GonNa. Leave the house someday and then Austin they just leave the preparation. Anyway. So how is my favorite holiday until that year and now? Holidays Fourth of July because I spend more money fourth of July, any human, and so because of that everybody comes to me and doing that to compensate for. For Kids. Anyway. That's how I really feel. I'm just joking anyway, that's those true story. This is the fourth of July is my new favorite holiday but. I'm always with Halloween and so as how gets closer I still get excited I'm not gonNA, love the lease falling into the seasons changing and Pumpkins and candy and like just all the things. So one of our family traditions every year for Halloween go to. Albion Idaho where there's this old college campus where an early nineteen hundreds a thriving college and nineteen. Twenty or something that went out of business. So it's been vacant for like one hundred years and a couple years back these family bought it and they renovated the whole thing in turn it into one of them, the dorms interns like a bed and breakfast, and then the rest of the turned to haunted houses like there's a Zombie House Claus and he's old creepy buildings from the early nineteen hundreds and anyway it's it's insane. So we go every year this year to to our friends Rachel Peterson her husband Paul and they came with us which was really fun so anyway. On the trip down Rachel says, what are your favorite books you're right now Evanston, asked me a question about books freeze 'cause I'm like. There's so many like I'm obsessed with books I have more books than I know and I buy 'em every day tons board and read most of the books I listen to audio by the physical book too because I like having physical books in. All sorts of turmoil. I sat there like a deer in headlights thinking and and I kept thinking thinking and I realized like right now and stuff because you know it is different seasons your life there's. Always, kind of things so. Anyway, I in a season my life actually cited for. I'm preparing not really a mentally thinking about my next book. I think I told you before my next book. I bought the domain bootstrap dot com books called bootstrapped, and it's going to be the final story how he did it. Because my other books have been how to books right like how to get traffic, how to build a funnel, how to copy things like that but it's not gonna be how this is the story of it. I've been obsessed like listening to books about companies and people telling their story about how they built a company and so. I've been listening to a lot of those lately just like understand how to write that way. How to tell stories that is different is different than how I've typically done things. So for me to be able to write this book to change my skill set and this hopefully is aside lesson for everyone like lot of times when we do the thing we wanna do to like. Do. We have to learn something completely different writing. If you business before you come into our world. Oh my gosh businesses, different online they we have to change how we think of meets same way for me to write six book like I learned how to write differently. and. Understand that respect that and paying attention to him trying to learn it so. Anyway. So been listening to audio books about companies about their stories come here how people tell their stories so my three books recommend hugh today are all books about people's companies And they're good for companies number one, they're fascinating books that were to really good. Storytellers the way they tell their story was fascinating where I was like sucked into the book and I couldn't stop. In fact to these books, I've listened to twice and one. Will probably listen to again I just finished that yesterday. So that's why I hadn't listened to it twice yet. Now's referee. I don't normally read things twice because I have so many books coming into both of two of the three books have already listened to twice, which is a testament how good of a story that they actually are. So without said in no particular order, I'll give you my three. Bucks Number One book. This one I'm nervous about because. It's like the dark side of Entrepreneurship Kate. You a lot of times you hear stories about who also built a company and it's like this positive thing and there's ups and downs and trials and tribulations but for the most part, it's like the positive experience, right?

Avengers Endgame With Ann Hornaday

"Washington Post lead film critic and Hornets Talks Avengers. Endgame as it celebrates its one year anniversary the hype and the build up and all that I have to admit that I was approaching this with a little bit of like. Oh let's get it over with already enough you know. And then it really ambushed me emotion of it really. I felt like you know you're too young to remember this. There was a famous episode of the Old Mary. Tyler Moore show with chuckles the clown chuckles. The clown died and And she's the one crying hardest funeral you know. And that's how I felt like I felt like I was completely not prepared for how I would feel during the actual movie and I just think again the Russo brothers did such a good job of that really. They made it emotional and a I don't know I just feel like they hit all the right. Note the goodbyes. Were they felt real and authentic and bad and like the way you know. I don't know the whole thing just. I was really really impressed with the way they did it. I was surprised at my own reaction. I had not reviewed because I was called away for it personal reasons. I wasn't able to review or even fee infinity war when it came out the reviewer of record for that for endgame was my colleague. Michael O'Sullivan because I felt like he deserved to be able to To do this once he had done the first one But I was actually. I had my quibbles with Insanity War I didn't it? Didn't you know I had many more couples with that so I was coming in with such guarded expectations and then it just completely impressed me. I just we could kind of talk about this. But there were so many scenes that just were just so many men between characters and between the characters and figures from their own path. That just got me. They were really really beautiful. You know when marvel does So well is to balance the humor and the action and the drama. Where it they just they have it in the right lane where it doesn't sway too much either way were gets too campy or too serious. They have a successful formula. Dc should not try to replicate it. Because they're really just works for Marvel because just the way their brand was from the beginning. I totally agree and you know I guess looking back and I remember you know feeling so when Ironman came out thinking Oh thank goodness. They were not taking it so seriously. After all the you know it was right after the Nolan Batmans it wrapped up and I thought those got way too heavy and way too dark and Kinda just self serious and then here's this Brett. Literal breath of fresh air and it was Downey kind of it was sort of wrapped up with his own personal story of redemption and recessive. Like he it was you know and and so there was. It was just so good to see him again and just doing something so well in having such fun and bringing his great great talent. He's such a gifted actors such a gifted or and you know. I don't know I just felt like that movie was so symbolic on so many levels and you're right it just started it. Just set the tone perfectly you know and then they manage to kind of carve out these really specific world for these characters so those captain America movies are their own little thing. You know the store Ragnarok did a stunning job of marrying the talent and the writing and acting and it all works. You know in your right. Dc SHOULDN'T I hope they don't try to replicate it. It's it of its own zone. Look for Endgame. Wherever you get your digital or DVD content and definitely read and Hornets at Washington Post Dot Com for bite. This is Tony Tiller.

Lindsay Gibson- Womens Adventure Club

"Always curious with people that we interviewed for Fit Lab Pittsburgh and I know women's Adventure Club you clearly like to spend time outdoors and you clearly like to move but were you in active kid growing up and if you were an active kid was it. 'cause MOM and dad's get the heck out of the house or was it because you played organized sports or did you find movement and being active outdoors later in life. I always loved playing I was in. I was in a few organized. I never really excelled at any one of them. We played tennis with my dad Soccer I did track in high school. I love to swim. I think for me. It was less about the competition and more about the social part of it. You know who I was with especially things like being with my dad. I mean I didn't care really what I was doing as long as I can be with him and And somehow food was always involves like ride our bike and get ice cream or. Let's go play tennis because hotdogs that they sell at the stand are so sure how healthy that is. That was part of part of my go. I know I was. I was interviewing somebody for moving to live a doctor who's gentleman who is a physician is in Spain right now. He talks about his wife is from. Spain and people always say well. You have ice cream every day for dessert said but what they don't take into a cow is you. Walk Six thousand steps from Your House to the ice cream parlor. You have one small scoop and you walk six thousand steps back so the hot dogs or the ice cream that you got with your dad. It probably wasn't hop in the car. Hop in the mini van. It was more along the lines. We have to walk. We have to ride our bikes. And then you get that as a reward. That's right that's right. I think exercising in nature is something that came later Although looking back you know you you find your passions and adult as in the dull and you look back at your childhood and you can say all they were always there. He's I used to love playing in the woods with my sister. I was little and I. I just Those same feelings are still there when I go out into into the woods now for a long hike or cross country ski or about bike and I know from looking at the Women's Adventure Club web page and facebook page. You lead a variety of outdoor movement activities. How long have you been doing a variety of outdoor movement activities? Was this something that you started when you got to. Alaska you said all the others all these opportunities or was it when you were younger living in different parts of Pennsylvania. Hershey as a working adult. I think you know as As you evolve as I've evolved different activities have come into my life so kind of according to place so when we're in California we where my parents live we serve and we hiked by the ocean And we're in Alaska. The winter was long. We had five to six months of winter and I was not a downhill skier. I never had Nordic skied before moving to Alaska. I never snowshoeing before a though I I better I better learn how to do these things and they ended up being my favorite ways to be outside and most of these things. I learned in my late thirties. Which was a huge important part of learning for me is that you don't be afraid to try something just because you think of yourself as being old you know it's really never too late to go outside your comfort zone and try something new. I think that's well put. I know a good friend of mine. Did his first ironman triathlon when he was forty four forty five and he's sixty six now and he said he can't just imagine a day or a week where he doesn't go for a bike ride or go for a run and I think you hit on it a few minutes ago moving and being outside there's something to it I know there's forest bathing anders nature baths and things like that so. I'm always curious when I talk to people who were movers. Is there a favourite movement activity that you have like if you have a free day or free week and somebody says Lindsay? Hey you can do. Anything you want cost isn't an object. What's the favorite movement activities? That you have architects. I think I think hiking I love Nordic skiing but the you know our winters are not very conducive to that here in Alaska. It was definitely Nordic skiing here. I think it's hiking it's accessible to everybody. There are so many great trails parks around the Pittsburgh area You can get out there regardless of your age and to some extent what kind of physical figure and you know you can do hikes or you can do really long all day. Hikes where there's a lot of elevations gain At your in the trees and I did a hike on Tuesday. Were it was in bear? Run Nature preserve down near Falling Water and at one point I stopped and could not hear one man made sound. It was just complete silence so I think hiking really allows you to get away and kind of get out of your head and take all the joys of Nature. I can understand that we do movement tippin lifestyle hack and fill out Pittsburgh. Were there videos and I know when I go back and I watched the videos very often. I've surprised at all the data. Sounds I missed? So it's really reminds me when you're out there. You know that that babbling brook the The the sounds of the birds that if you don't pay attention you miss that. And that's part of the real thrill and I told the couple people this week. One of the things that if I was an indoor exerciser I never would have been able to see is about a year ago when I was in my local park with dogs. There've been a lot of rain. I got to see three deer. Swim across a stream. One of them being taken out or taken down with the current and Kinda ride the current. Kayaker does do they hit a Eddie and all three hop up in the bank and shake like a dog on what one of the cool things about that as actually had my phone with me so I have a video of it and to me having exercised literally all over the world. That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen which I never would have gotten if I didn't go outside right. Oh that's so cool

PS4's Big Exclusives Shift Release Dates

"Learned at the beginning of this week. we'll start with the news and then get into the like less every aspect of it but we did learn the last of US part two and go sushi. Mahathir Randy released its The last of US part. Two's coming June nineteenth. I believe I'm going to double check. That and go. Sushi is July seventeenth so A. Yeah Ace what ended up. Originally being an indefinite move was a three ish week. Move for the last of us are two and a ghost which was originally supposed to come out at the end of June June twenty-sixth. Obviously it would not be great to release those two major. Ps Four Games within a week of each other so this gives ghosts some breathing room in between. How do we feel about these new release dates? Obviously they're close. We don't have to wait too long for them. Feel about them. Yeah I mean like we will. We spent a lot of times vacating. How far pot goes to Sushi? Mid would be to the loss of US yesteryear. You know that was. That was off now. Things have changed and I don't really care if it's two games to playstation exclusives are released relatively close together because I'm going to be playing more to the very end because I have that time And I think it's it's super exciting. I said that the last of us to make that really dramatic sort of cool. But I'm very pleased that it's like now. We have a definitive release date once. I love you phrase this not as two new games. Got Delayed again. Two brand new release dates. Yeah see I was expecting to get kicked down the road a little bit in like honestly a three week. Delay is not that bad and I was actually kind of kind of bummed out by the delayed indefinitely. Because that's like that's like Mama Data. You're getting back together and it's like well we're separated into definitely. That's a serious since and upsetting. So that's what I that's the weird thing about. The word is indefinitely can go both ways. Right indefinitely could mean this game has cancelled like obviously. It wasn't for the last of us that no one ever thought. That was the case for the last of us but it could mean that in certain contexts Or it could just mean a couple of weeks like it. It's a word that genuinely can like just mean we don't know as the word they use pretty much and that's what it being. I agree that generally people think of it as a like glass half empty kind of thing. Someone that's got a negative relationship like we've separated indefinitely. No one's like It sounds like it could go either way. It's like that relationship is that is that is a done deal my friend. Lopiano or celebrating the dates Max. Not because it's like yeah. It's two three week delays her dog. I'm with you. It's it's a little tiny like little sliver of of something being definite that we. It's not like tend to believe. Agile that what hold onto. What's really funny about them to is like we went in expecting. This could be a long delay. Like how close could this get to the? Ps Five launch. Theoretically like what we see them go to the fall. My guess is it probably was a massive logistical thing to figure out of like. Oh what does the distribution pipeline look like as as unsavory? Some other stuff is that we can get to in a second. I do think the weird like little details. We don't know about this delay. Probably have a lot of business stuff that is just very boring to a mass audience. So that's why we don't hear about it like they had to figure out getting things to stores getting things on digital making sure countries might be able to support that stuff on the Internet side and I totally prefer this where they say as early as they know has lasted much. Isn't gonNA come out when we think it's good when you think it's GonNa come out than the alternative which is right now. We learn that last of US IS DELAYED THREE WEEKS. Right like yeah. I prefer they tell you. Tell US early on that. They know something is coming with a delay and they just don't quite know what yet like at much more preferable to me than finding very very late. Yeah it's I would prefer the way that we found out this recently and I think something that you know. Maybe they were looking at it or not In between those announcements or at least like information that we got since the announcement of the delay and now is we saw a major game like final fantasy seven. Hit THREE POINT. Five million units Despite the supplier constraints despite the issues going on the world. Obviously that games Copies were already out manufactured to a certain extent but maybe seeing the success that that game had animal crossing makes them think. Okay maybe we can still have successful launch even with these concerns for a game. This big and final fantasy did not have a clean launch ray. A final fantasy came out early in Australia. It was hard to get and other places like that was a messy launch and it still did really really well so yeah. I was surprised about inspired and I think these released as our solid especially considering all other forms of entertainment are on pause like TV. Shows can't film all movies except for tenant from Christopher Nolan have been delayed in the summer so June and July are pretty empty months for entertainment so to have these two major blockbuster games ever stuck at home. Pretty Good Pretty. Good audience to have at your fingertips. I do WANNA mention though. We did reach out because when a less of US got delayed ironman. Vr was also delayed. And it wasn't mentioned in this update. We reached out to Sony and they said expect news on that in the coming weeks now again like the word indefinitely the coming weeks could be next week. It could be twelve weeks from now. I don't know but Hopefully we get word on that. Game's release

"ironman" Discussed on Journey to $100 Million

"Join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollar company. What's happening? It's Eric J Olson. One of my twenty twenty years. Resolutions is to kick ass at a half ironman. If you're not aware of what a half hour is it is a triathlon where you swim at one point two miles you bike fifty six miles and you run a thirteen point one miles one event immediately after the other with the Corona Virus Shutting Down Gyms. I have a problem. I don't have access to a pool that I can swim in so I've been going to my local gym and I belong to two different gyms and they both shut down so there's nowhere to swim. It is too cold here in Virginia right now to be swimming outdoors and I don't even have a wetsuit and ironically. I have a pool backyard. But it's not heated yet. I'm going to get heated really soon and the water's just too cold. It's like sixty sixty five degrees. It's just way too cold to jump in right. Now maybe when it gets up to about seventy certainly about seventy five. I'll be jumping in swimming but it's only about half the length of the pool with Jim. Which means doing an awful lot of foot turns but I would rather do that than not swim at all so at least I know that I will have access to a pool within a week or two when the water warms up or once. The heater guests connected just waiting for the technicians to come. And do that. But it's definitely put a cramp in my training plans. You know I have some options here. One is I can just at this point admit defeat and just say you know what I haven't been training for swim and I'm just going to drop out but you probably already know my feelings on that. If you are a listener to the podcast or you know me personally. That ain't gonNA happen. I've been talking about doing this half ironman. I'm going to do the swim regardless of whether I've done the full training or not. I know I can finish one point two miles so I'm committed to it My hope is that the pool's open soon either at the gym or in my backyard pool which I said as outdoor but I'll do it and also that they don't cancel the half Ironman so as I record this mid April and the half Ironman is in June is on June fourteenth. So what's that magic two months? Wow only two months away so it's right around the corner and they haven't cancelled yet which is crazy like everything else is getting canceled around it so I don't know if they're going to do it or not but I'm preparing for them to do it so I'm biking running and I'm doing what I can and I guess said hopefully within a week or two. I'll be swimming again when I set my sights on a goal in particular nears resolution is usually something that's GonNa take all year long and it's going to be one or two or three big things for me that has worked out very well and this is the second year that I've done that specifically with nearest resolutions. It just focuses all of your energy and all your attention on a few big goals. I would certainly recommend doing something like this for yourself. You'RE GONNA come up against obstacles like I have with not having access to a pool but you know what you do the best you can and you complete your goal and you'll feel good about yourself and then the next goal you set will be even bigger so yeah you're gonNA come into or across obstacles. I have but you know what you'll figure it out. Set Your Sights High. Go accomplish your goals. Thank you for listening. If you enjoyed this episode you'll want our entrepreneurs newsletter sign up.

"ironman" Discussed on 710 WOR

"The, the parallel to my ironman training to trading investing in the market. One of the things that I want to bring up because we were really talking about not trying to do this on your own. It is the same thing with, with ironman training. I have I've had over the last, especially for this race. Specifically, I've had a six month training plan, not built by me built by professional, ironman, coach. She has done multiple irons. Yes. I said she she has done multiple irons. She's coach tons of athletes. I'm on a I'm on a triathlon team called team. Iron cowboy we'll give them a shout out Carly who is my who is my ironman coach. Right. So a training plan and a nutrition plan and a race plan not built by me. I can't build that stuff. I had a professional building that stuff out for me. It's the same thing when you look at businesses and you start my brother and I were chatting about this because he has a traffic on coaches. Well, we something that we do together. And he said, you think it's weird we have coaches, and I said, no, it's totally normal that we have coaches, I said, that's how you. Learn how to do everything businesses have consultants we have a trap on coach. I've had a trading mentor for the last seventeen years. I've had two two different guys. I would really refer to as my trading mentors because the facts are you can't teach yourself something you don't know. You can go and read as many books as you want. There's going to be so many things that you still overlook whether it's triathlon or whether it's trading and investing. It doesn't matter. There's so many little nuances that you overlook and usually, it's the things that you believe to be accurate that you've actually miscalculated you've missed, redder. You've misunderstood that ended up being the most costly because we can't audit our own belief system. So when we believe we're doing something right? Even though it could be very damaging to our returns. We continue to do it because we go well, that can't be the problem because we can't, we can't unbeliev what we believe it's just it's just like philosophically impossible. Well, you know, it's funny, if you ever think back to school. Right. And I, I use this analogy all the time with a lot of my students. Ryan is we were told. From a young age that copying is a bad thing. Right. Don't get me wrong. I'm not talking about plagiarizing or stealing from somebody else. But what we've missed the Mark on is what most people like Steve Jobs, or Mark Zuckerberg, or Bill Gates all understand, is they all have one thing in common. They all dropped out of college. When asked why they did that they said, I'm not gonna learn what I need here at this university. Why? Because there are people who will be teaching me that have never experienced what I'm looking to do. And so, the most successful people surround themselves with people like themselves. But more importantly, what they're always looking to do with find somebody that they can learn from so copying, as a great thing. And that's where you've heard me say over and over again, it's not about working hard. It's not about working smart. It's about working, right? So using the monopoly analogy stick on this little longer. Okay, if you think about it. Why most people are not able to go ahead and be able to play the game as best as they do? They really understand the rules and how to manage money. Properly, I've seen people look to buy properties, right out the gate without a lot of strategy and their cash poor by the time they're finished. Well, a lot of people do that with their trading. They'll go all in and all these different companies, not learning real good risk management, rules, and anybody unprofessional professional. That's on Wall Street knows that it's risk. I then reward we've got to teach you the right way to do this. So when you come in, and you're learning the skill euro, one of those people who smile, every time you see Pasco and collect two hundred dollars. You're investing that two hundred dollars in the right things. Yeah. And it is just having that winning strategy and making sure that you're aligned with the rules and having that strategy that ends up going in and doing what you wanted to do. And it's a it's a critical thing, and if we're not getting what we want, then let's just be real with ourselves and saying, hey, what we're doing isn't working, and maybe that could be that could be taken in any scenario life. But, but if we're not where we want financial, and then there's things that we need to change. We need to do something else for not where we want health wise. There's things we need to change. There's things that we need to do differently. It's just kind of the bottom line. Now, one of the things that we can do to help people get started as far as understanding the markets better, and especially our patented core strategy, which is designed to teach you how to make better investing decisions is, we could do a quick little giveaway before we take this break, what he say. Yeah. Let's get some people don't go straight to jail. All right. Maybe on their way to free parking now just a second. You're gonna have a chance to win tickets to these classes. Get you phones ready. If you're driving..
