"Can kick the tires. You can read the intro and the first chapter for free and then make a decision as to whether or not. It's a book for you. But if today is august thirtieth when you're hearing this it's the last day to get the book for forty percent off and it's the last day to spend just eleven bucks on a book and get five hundred dollars in free stuff that comes along with it. That course i mentioned you get the audio book. A lot of folks have asked me about the audio book. I say i tell him. Don't now at least now. Don't buy the audiobook by the physical book and the book for free physical book away if you want to but the audiobook is free when you do that again. It's forty percents off. Through the end of the day. August thirtieth after that it is the regular price but again you can download that first chapter in the introduction. If you wanna kick the tires. I read to lead book dot com. I have one final question which i just thought of. which is. that's i have had so many books. Count through my house in the last few years that i have had to figure out where to put all these things and many of them have given away Semi of you know. Give him the goodwill or friends. And what do you do with the all. Yearbooks are you storing them. You have a massive library your house like. I'm curious as to if someone is going to be a lifelong reader. This is going to be a problem. You're gonna have to figure out at some point. So what do you do there. pushed me to get kendall Two or three years ago. And i only honestly use it. When i'm giving a book in no other format if if if i'm going to interview an author and the only thing they can provide me as a pdf then. I'll read it on my kindle. But that's the only time i use it. And the whole idea of her pressing me to get that was to begin consolidating and saving some room because we were beginning to bust at the seams with regard to books so i know all that you know that feeling especially the last eight years Having done show that. I've done it's really just recently. I've had to pack a bunch of them up. And what i did was was donated. A bunch of them to my local library who i know turns around and then offers these days where people can come in and get you know a bag full of books for a dollar and that money goes back into the public library and help support them. And so that's what. I've started to do recently with the extra books but i think i think i'm always going to prefer physical books. And so that just means every so often. i'm going to have to have a major purge. Give some of those ways you said or donate them to goodwill or my local library excellent. Yes i feel like a home. Library is excellent but I'm kind of a minimalist. Sometimes i fight the urge to you know. Be a maximalist with books and then a minimalist in some of the ways. It's it's complicated. But i'm trying to figure it out somewhere Jeff brown. this has been amazing. Super excited for your book and i. I'm definitely a fan of reading..

You know i haven't per se other than More often than not be older. A person is the more likely they are to prefer a physical books. Though you know.

I was just doing one thing that virtually none of my colleagues were doing and that was reading and learning and recognizing the the pow the power of of being a lifelong long sibling on like watching television every single day. Nothing wrong with that in moderation but instead of that being every evening i was leveraging that time to do other stuff and it paid off really really quickly. Nice nice okay. Well folks if for no other reason. That's a reason. Get the book yet. You get you you learn new things and new opportunities will present themselves to you because people will take notice because you're choosing to improve you and when you choose to improve you people around you do understand that and they take notice like hey. What's different about this person. what are they doing. And then the begin. Ask questions all right so let me ask you this. How can we.

When i have people ask me you know. How do you find time to read as many books as you do or how. They might be able to do that themselves. One of the first questions. I'll ask back. John is Wealthy schedule your reading time. Oftentimes it looking at funny like why wouldn't do that to me. It's not important enough skill for you to Maintain consistently unless you're willing to do that. That's the only way. I could read to the regularity that i do is i look at my week. Sort of allah.

"Why did you write the book or something like that. That is what i asked but The reason that's that's that'll be logistical reason. Why i wrote it but the the true why behind it is is for my passion on your. I started the podcast of a passion to help get nor More noses more books really and Help macbooks more accessible to people with read to lead the book. The idea it's kind of meta for a book. A book about reading books Making the most of them is really about helping those who are struggling with with what to read In win and or maybe even they're not sure they are convinced of why they should make a habit a first place And also you know well how to make the most okay. You've convinced me. How do i make the most of this habit. Although i Make it a habit. How do i make the most now. But how do i retain comprehend And that sort of thing and so the book is designed to cover each of those areas So you may be someone who needs to Read about all three of those or or if you're already convinced that this is a habit you need to cultivate what to skip one. Go right to to because those parts of valuable to you as well. Okay so let me ask this. Let's say that. I am a business person but the closest i come to reading is anything that shows up on this small screen right here. My phone she he. What do you say to somebody like that. Who's who basically says. Add books for me yet. Well i think some form of reading is better than none. But i think anyone who does not wanna read books and i'm thinking particularly nonfiction but even fiction would beat included in this category. Fiction really helps us with her with our creativity. The anyone who does not wanna read books. has basically said to themselves I don't need to think if you don't want it or don't need to read books than you're saying. I don't need to think. An essence carry over viral. Mutual friends said that to me once and that just really resonated with me. So i used to be that person in my twenties. I didn't read books. Because i felt i did all the learning i needed to do in school. I'm done with that now. I don't need to do that in more and And that to me is First of all it's You know demonstrating a fair amount of hubris one. That is i think later gonna come back to bite you because none of us are at a place. I believe where we need to stop learning in life. There's always going to be new things to learn whether that's for your job. Or whether that's for your own personal growth and development as the thing i love about books think about a subject or a person or an industry or something. Any anyone was categories or others. That fascinate you And guess what there are books about those topics fine books on those topics that fascinates you and you'll never be bored reading in fact even if it's a slog i the more you exercise it The more you will begin to joy.

All the time you know winter you gonna write a book and my answer was often. I would kind of him and hall and and just beat around the bush. Oh you know man. I'll do that some day. Or maybe a will or whatever But frankly if i if i were to have been completely transparent with those folks i would have said things like that are probably never happen. I'm not sure. I have it in me or it. Just seems too daunting overwhelming I just don't know if i could actually finish it all. What would i say all those kinds of things jesse who you mentioned earlier Touch base with me. You and i were loosely connected on facebook having met at a conference in your fast and a couple of years ago right around this time. He reads out to me and said hey. I had this idea for a book. called the readers edge the end. I wanna talk to you about it. I don't know if you're interesting idea of colonial book but that intrigue me. Because i off selfishly i was thinking i would be up for co writing a book because that means i get to share the load the work navy.

And i got together We we talked through. He'd had a marketing plan that he pitched to Publishers yet illiterate agent. All that and they had said no to him in the main bit of feedback they had given him was. You don't have a platform jesse own or you don't have a big enough platform. Jesse recognized that. That's something i had that he did not and so he thought well. If we put our heads together and re shops this would be answered. Be different and the answer was diff Now we only got one bite. But that's why that's all you need and so it certainly A bite if you will that.

"It relates to my job. Dissuade say go get it will pay for it. yeah And that just that led naturally to a book club later on down the line and each of us coming together to read a single book whereas up to that point we had been reading books relevant to what we alone. We're doing within the company when within our career so so that that simple act of just being caught doing it and demonstrating that. It's something that you value seems to just naturally prompt other people to want to know more about why you value that so high. I love that. I love that and i also find that when you make reading accessible to people. One of the things i would do in leading a team was added photocopy. Oh i probably shouldn't say this photocopy just like three or four pages of a book or whatever and highlight certain things and just give those out to people and say hey. Just read the couple of pages. I just want you to see what you think about this. And that was a way to get hook them into the concepts and the book to read the whole book nor are they necessarily gonna glean the same insights that i want them to have if they do block but if i just give them a couple of easily digestible things that that might hook them in we can pull them into the cult of reading show. Well jefferson evil plan. Yes that's right. Clan for domination we get everybody to read and then we get the motor. Read my book. that's jeff. This has been a real joy.

Jeff Brown: Why Photographers Should Be on LinkedIn
"Today's guest is the linked in expert. Jeff brand from the uk. Now if the name sounds familiar up jeff has appeared on the podcast episodes. Two hundred sixty one and three hundred thirteen. He is the author of the book. The photographers missing linked in your step by step guide on how to make a ton of money unlinked in now in a recent chat. Jeff told me that lincoln has changed more in three months than the past two years and there are still less than eight percent of photographers with profiles on the platform. He says for many of the hundreds of photographers. He works with lincoln's producing more jobs than ever before. I'm looking forward to learning more. And i'm rat to have jeff back with us now. Jeff welcome to the podcast again. Fantasy under it's great to be back on again by. Why do you think photographers either. Reluctant or staying a wife from linked in. I think it's still lee old belief that link is for people who were recruited and it's like recruitment applauded. Uc visa at form. And it's not you know. Say coming close to seven hundred and seventy five million uses on the platform now. It's the biggest professional social network in the world and with an average wage-earner of eighteen thousand dollars a year so these are people who actually have money. So do you think people are staying away from. Because i don't feel to attract clients or they just think it's another social network. Have you heard from people that are are reluctant to actually join photography's specifically well you know you came with a bath. So i did some searches at the beginning of the year and found out that the a law photographers unlinked in bull moose photographers. Huge percentage of jobs don't have equal fully optimize profiles and i would look at the entire limited network itself. Seven hundred and seventy five million uses only thirty million of those have fully optimized profiles by fully optimized these the showing up in the searches people. They get same now from that less than one percent of the entire uses on linked to create content. That goes into the news feed and from photographers point-of-view between south eight to ten percents photographers use lincoln actively post to the platform. Once a month. So if you put that into context to the likes of facebook and instagram where the traffic is high. If you want to start getting seen online tain and get in front of the people that you want to do business with than the compensation is pretty much non existent for you. All you've gotta do is get your profile fully optimized and get consistency. So you know you do one poor stumbling. You're not gonna get a load of people in boxing say can oblique.

Jeff Brown from "Read to Lead" & How to Intentionally DREAM Your Success
"Jeff Man I'm so excited that you here welcome the DOSA leadership. Well I'm excited to be here when I looked at the lineup. You've had on your show to be included in that lineup is up a real privilege. So thank you. Let me start off by personally thanking Yose talking with Chris Brogan. Couple of ago he had me on his livestream on his show And we were talking about in in you and I have been connected since we both started our podcast pretty much. I started mine in. January of two, thousand thirteen and I think you were spring or summer of twenty thirteen I can't remember. July, Young. And I think we connected even way back. Then I think someone I think John Lee. Dumas. Connected US somehow somewhere But Anyway I wanted to thank you personally because you've been kind of a private mentor to me from an interview style. And I get complimented on my interview style and I attribute a lot to listening to you and learning from you privately. So I wanted to. Your your style in the way that you do it is something that I try to emulate and look up to. So I wanted to personally thank you before i. Went further on that. Well thank you for buttering me up. I'll say lots of Nice things. I know. I think it's it's I can't believe that we haven't done this sooner. Because we've been connected. So Long I love to that we know as looking at your. facebook feed the other day. and. You always post your pictures of your dachshunds and I got two dachshunds and you got three. But you got one about the same time that I did eleven years ago. The same month, a June July I think of eleven years ago you got that dabble when they have what his name, what's his name Frank Frank. And Anyway I've got. Eleven year old long hair red haired Dachshund, and loved Oxen's in fact the kids are printing the wife's pressure in mead. Get another one a new puppy. And I'm like Oh, you know, and then I'm secretly looking behind the scenes online. I just love this dog just. Anyway. So this isn't a dachshund readers podcast, but we could probably turn it into that but anyway I just. I've watched your journey it's been parallel to mine. We've talked a lot of the same folks. The podcast journeys been amazing for me as I know it has been for you. Looking back at this I've had my ups and downs, and in fact, I was telling you in the prerecording here that sometimes. I was kind of in a low funky at the beginning of the summer and I took sabbatical for about four weeks and they just started getting back into it and. What about you is it happened you along these these last seven and a half years seven years for you. You know thankfully no, I mean there have been. A moments where I've taken a month off and you know done releases of of older episodes, I I do have a a streak. I'm quite proud of at the moment. Just because it's a big deal for me, but about two and a half one more than two and a half years without missing a Tuesday. which I could not say about the first several years I, miss one year there but got a long street going at the moment. I. I I. Know You agree with this the important thing about podcasting in center going around a particular topic as a lot of people do can can sometimes be limiting. But. It's possible to choose a and be really specific in your choice of IDEA. But at the but at the same time, have different things that fit within that. For example, I think of intentionally consistent rereading and it's a very specific thing and and. That sort of the mantra that my podcast is built around value of intentional assistant reading. But that umbrella. serves many topics very well leadership, personal growth mindset entrepreneurship I mean the list goes on and on. and so I never run out of topics to talk about that fit within that sort of over arching umbrella and I. I never run out of books being really strange and so others always something new and interesting another shiny thing around the corner that I can I can latch onto dive into an read so. I haven't had that issue. I have been more recently as I as I'm sure you have. Tailored some of my questions to what's happening in the world or. many of the people I talked to make their living or at least partially through public speaking or you know in person workshops and things of that nature and so. I'm often asking, well, what are you doing? in light of your and and everything else. In because virtually everyone I've talked to everyone I interview has been an impact in some way myself included and so. Those kinds of of changes or or metamorphosis to the processes kind of happen naturally as along

Dave Grening, Rick Hammerle, Gabby Gaudet
"McGee Jay Brennan and Dave Greg Good Morning the hard act to follow right there well. I think you're up to it and much like we did with Jay. Hey we didn't get a chance to talk last week. Day I saw some of your thoughts on paper and on twitter but quick hit from last weekend the Jockey Club Gold Cup Diku and everything that came with it didn't agree with the call but that's par par for the course for me and the stewarts here good rates by both horses of Abu kind of the call takes away from the performance of both you know Roseville in sort of honor. I thought it was Kinda. Overshadowed what how well they ran I thought it was in solid effort. You know Roy Moore your skin and people give them credit for so he's tactical enough that you're going to go back to the race. In California that he won he was four why but right up on the pace so he can be he can play from the start and still finish finish which is a good thing for him to have going into the classic and Code of honor you know stepped up against a couple of quality older horses and and still continues to show improvement as Shug shoveling transfer your kid and I'm glad they didn't go into stuff. it'll it'll spice it up a bit very much and we talked to show yesterday what turned into a was supposed to be a you know. Tell us about the decision ten minutes turned into forty because because show and you can talk about the current horses and then you can talk about his Breeders Cup record you know he's he's run horses in the Classic Eight Times. He's got two seconds and third and I asked him if he thought you know this was as good or the best one of the best chances that he's had in a classic and he kind of feels it is I think so in part because he's got a quality improving horse and in part because I don't see a real stand out in the division there you know I I was even if Mackenzie had one last week is still affected him at a mile and a quarter. I think come back with a pack a little bit and now I think he's you know emit commit pack there. I you know he he he was not impressive last week and and right now he doesn't have a jockey so that could be a hindrance so I I think the the you know I I think the visual the classic is releasing. My is right now pretty wide open well it it certainly enhances the classic and we got some. Jay's thoughts will also wait for some other news in decisions. Tacitus you know who I could send as many as three with a late and Yoshida. We'll see what the tacitus call is but have you talk to Jimmy later in the week about preservationists. I don't think the preservation and the clock berry good yeah. I kind of. They were Iffy iffy. Even before we got through the jockey there pretty traditional people. You Know Oh you go to the classic going for a good race. You don't go you don't travel cross country now. It's in your own backyard. Maybe maybe say okay. I'm hearing but the put him on. A plane ain't off that race. just doesn't make any sense to me and. I'm not sure what it was tales right now. I wouldn't be surprised if maybe they they just you know. Have you know conclude are dealing. Just say thank you. Thank you for the memories. They were well some other thoughts thoughts about the weekend the the two year old swept by Chad Brown and not necessarily by Chad Brown surfers Dave that were all that highly regarded regarded coming into the early fall. It looks selflessly ran a decent race when she got in her debut. She was a bit why she was just what about a half length behind her stablemate and you know. She got a very nice trip. The other day and you know you beat a field that I didn't necessarily I think was seller but that didn't necessarily like her either so I can't you know I'm not saying that I choose my choice but look it's very you know. Handicapping is hard art. When it comes to the Grillo it's simple to spend on Chad Brown. It just just do it. Does it seven and eight. I've never seen I've Nev- I don't know of any race that he may be bad for our security security and and and dumb or something that just a guy dominates the race like Chad Brown at least in New York dominates the race Jeff Brown dominates the Mus Grill and just you know next year when it comes. I'm just circle the Chad. He's got more the ones at about boxing and you'll walk out with a little more money so any payment structure solid rates you know. I I liked about structure that he showed you different dimension in the first race. It was a slow pace. He was up on it and then he finished and then they got a bit of a faster pace and close close so you like versatility show. I need to know more about what else is in that race before. I say an annoying Kim and enter a the you know a victory in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turpin juvenile fillies served interesting I said they were aware of it at the time but selflessly not nominated to the Breeders Cup now looks set clemens got that money hidden in his closet somewhere so he can easily put up the supplementary see but it it was a weird kind of a strange thing maybe just crack but be supplemented for the raiders stuff to run and I'm sure she will do well. beyond the two year old stakes stakes midnight zoo in the Belle Dame and got you got you got her legs stretched and did what was necessary. The race as that ended up surprising to some degree aside from everything that went on in the Gold Cup four Horsfield in that Vosper that ended up being really exciting and forensic fire and imperial put on some show down the stretch cool horses you know he's still still Harvard have trouble taking that race threatens fire and last year the parts race horse averaged one the rate just a cool towards I mean that's a super cool horse right there in so small but he's got such big hardy so fast and you know I think they call it a little bit adviser prize when Friends Fire Collared Him and he still had something more to offer and he gave it to him and you know maybe maybe hard race before the Breeders Cup will help him in the Breeders Cup opposed to a couple of cakewalks that he had especially last year Vosper. You just walked around there and now last year Frears Cup. Chances may have been compromised the fact that he just doesn't run it and go to Churchill downs I mean I think he's on there three times. The probably three worst races throughout the worst rates is I thought he may well enough to del Mar a few years ago when he was in the Mitch Breeders Cup and second. I believe but maybe there's hard rates will help him. battle tough because it's a tough rate expensive very very competitor's. Maybe one or better rates on the car to the totally and chance a lot on you know. I guess you have to see what Omaha beach that rates for tomorrow how he runs. A and B what they use it for work. the the the sprint has potential to come up here one of the best races on the card and I think that race will have imperial head registered. Well turn our attention attention to tomorrow and there's a lot there's a lot of intriguing match-ups paper going into Saturday at and there's actually a nice set races on Sunday with the thirty the flower bowl in the present. We gotta start with Champagne and a green light. Go Ah to forego the hopeful. After the track was a a a slop. I don't blame Jimmy Jerkins at all for taking that route however he comes into the champagne now having to go a mile and there are at least is three others that are are major players here not the least of which is Barkley tag and Saka Toga the last time they had a two year old like like this. They kept funny side against New York breads until going to Florida for the holy bull this time they're going to go for an early open company opportunity the and it's at the highest level the first thing. I want to say that this race is there is a major scratching the race three technique. Jeremiah texted me this morning and I put it up on twitter a little while although has a lung infection and we'll come out of the race and I thought he was a significant player in the field so it's down to six source field going at that. Tis The law law you know of course is very impressive. Beating New York reds first time out had shin issue that Barkley took care of list about three weeks total of training but it's gotten back in I saw I saw at least two if not all three of his three of his works here and they're very solid workout you just wonder if the layoff going a mile with the one rate is going to happen ready to do it now. The layoff is very similar to green like oh the day difference so it's not that sort of balances out but green go with tested in stakes company and also has races opposed to one and I just like I just really liked it. I I don't know what he's going to become. I don't know how far is GONNA WANNA run but I just like the way both starts getting solid well built for uh-huh hardy type of horse who just has a great hind end you know where the power generated from and I think like the mile and beyond and I think this has a moment for Jimmy. Sake that the horses say how down and continue on the campaign Jimmy. He says out born whatever that might be but I think it'd be awful strongest training like that rate.
