I think feelings are feelings. And i think it's important to understand in see where they're coming from of the root of those things absolutely and whether or not it's motivation or procrastination things like that and your question is.

Let's figure this out and so it's cool and having that flex they love their support in that flexibility internally is really the driving factor in. It's not that that's the cool thing about the team. I'm with right now. Is that they they really do. They really really their pro entrepreneur. Mark's podcast it's about entrepreneur. Yeah right so the pro entrepreneurial even internally we march podcast before i was i was on his podcast season one season one was seasoning on now three. Okay another seasons. Listen and you learn things every day. I need you know i. It's a podcast so you can kind of do what you want. And i think seasons affords you the opportunity to take a break every once in a while needed. Honestly i think taking breaks and whether it's a passion project whether it's work whether it's whatever like honestly like eve relations. I'm not saying i'd take a brain relationship also even alone time fine. You know what i mean. It's very important. Oh i in our in what we're doing. A lot of social life is my work life. And i love that i love it. I love it. i love it. I get energized from the from the interaction. Jason these confrontations. But the as much as much as. I love that i require the power down require the. What is the power down for you great question. I think it's important. Let's say power down important to spend time on yourself. Whatever that looks like for you or for me for me. obviously fitness as a staple and so The cardio awaits trough. It's not crossing because he would talk about it right now. Well no it. It is crossed it. I just i just know the the negative connotations about it. So i usually don't address it upfront. Because of the perception. And i think that it's too late now because you're already judging me with your judging and judging and that's fine but now it just has a lot more about you than it does about me. Oh that's okay. that's okay it's i. I enjoy the way i train. And honestly i took took a lot of time off from working out because i got wrapped up in what i was doing. But wouldn't you take off.

"Oh my gosh i can bulk order like me being stupid. It was like what does that mean to you. Like i can see all the projects going on at one time right now. We're ordering one project at a time and that's redone at work right there. It's not just redone work. It's when boko to save money on buying more things one time right but it's also done when the fact that you're you're you're you're an. Yeah the amazon cleaning but like you're carrying in your your bidding out that like the whole process itself saves money but not just just just visibility of all your projects going on at one time. Because they're not in one spreadsheet at a time you can see everything going on if you need to. There's a lot of ways you can look at it. It's like oh my gosh. I can bulk order. And you know when you're losing jobs or you winning jobs these one hundred million dollars you know jobs by five thousand dollars. You factor in bordering. Just one jobs. So it's like that light bulb that went off and i was like. Oh my gosh good for like. I'm so identifying things like that where people will have this home of value that we're creating for them. It's like okay. This is accessible. You know you're on the right path. Some cases you you go through a handful of means you're like hannah. Are we doing this right like i. We were doing something cooling. She wore like this is not needed. I've never had this issue spreadsheets. Were great for this workflow. I think that you're doing something wrong. Do you feel that. That's one of those old school mentality is like not champion doing this for twenty years. It's an old school mentality but old school mentality is get adopted by younger people still right because you have businessmen tourist businessmen tourists. How you that's how you're taught something so you know what i found is it's a it's a personality trick. People are open in want to learn new things just like you like learning new things people that really want to see what's out there and you get and i think that You tracked people like that. And in so i think it's a really cool thing what you're doing because it's a really honestly feeds into what i'm doing because it's like it's a. It's a little bit of an identifier for me to say okay. These people are willing to understand and look at what they're doing from a process the umbrella and you know whether it's general procurement or whether it's a whole casa meeting rather what it doesn't matter like i can i.

"A that is extremely important as a starting point like we're entering these companies to solve problems and what we're gonna do is going to collectively identify problems and we have a solution for this low hanging fruit problem right now but in my mind. I think that we're gonna go through. We're going to go through these verticals if you will. Where whether it's general contractors Enp's drilling contractors shipyards and Tendering offshore drilling contractors. Well solve these problems and get these early early wins with these guys with clear metrics of what we're doing to add value and then collectively identify the next issue. And let's let's let's build towards that because these are all project based project based industries. Where what we're doing. There's a lot of correlation between them. There's a lot of differences. Yeah but a lot of the same things transferable and so. Let's let's solve these problems and really take your industry into a place where you can be so efficient and in so lean that you a you free up your your director. People from data entry. You're allow them to solve the higher level decisions and have people solve real problems that really add value to your company as opposed to sit there and press buttons. Are people comfortable or people come from when they're when we when you come in there you present. The solution is the the aleve of these pain points right where you want to go. I mean people comfortable idea with his new transition is one of those things. You gotta kinda hold their hand or they feel like if they get to that point. I feel like they might be on board. There's an idea is identifying vetting process my end to clearly understand like you know we have to. We have to be find the right group to work with as early adopters during this right because we we have a few companies working with across these verticals in some cases one company and so From there let's let's take feedback meetings other places but we're not trying to commercialize anywhere else right now..

"Chicken. The acting i guess. But it's it's important for us to go in there and really understand their their process and because the system we have like i said touches multiple levels multiple departments. It's a pre. Erp right so that's working with a lotta different apartments and people in. It's our job to to show them the path forward in. It's like yeah because it's a institutional change. Maybe you have to take a step back for implement this but here's our implementation plan which we will nail with you because we know your process. We know what we have to tie into. We know who is involved here. And we know who your vendors are and it's our job to eliminate or limit the friction associated with with adopting a new system like this and it's our job to integrate with things. It's not our job to sit here and say here's your software. You guys are awesome later. It's our job to behooves us to to him on a client focused approach right. We're doing period. And if we can nail that and repeatedly nail that That's the reputation want and starting with the process like starting with the initial phone call. Starting with like this is building trust and then you build trust to get to these process meetings right. Yeah but once companies willing to do a process meeting in they understand what were there to do usually have before the process. Meaning what's understand like. Hey he's got a really here to help and are not here to make a quick buck like we know like that trust is important in establishing it is very very difficult but keeping it is also something that is difficult and that is something that i'm really i love. The opportunity to keep doing is constantly earning. Earning clients trust through Just knocking things out the ballpark with armies programming team. Who always in you know they overdeliver and undersell what they can do and it's like they give timelines on. We're going to get this features done at this time.

Tuesday i remember sitting there in my previous roles and all that stuff whenever you like in this new software come in whether whether it was off or whether it was this whether that was always like i felt like majority of the time they were trying to create a problem in your organization that you didn't have necessarily have but they have a software to fix it but you have so they there's is a false problem or false issue creation.

"What i'm hearing. Is you sound excited about what excites you about this. It's it's the idea that we are on the cusp of like really making a difference in in the cost estimating world period not like in. We're not making you really big in hoodie dean about that though. Why do you. Why do you personally want to be a part of that. I really like being partisan way bigger than myself and having a heavy hand in creating that okay and this is like the excitement of it like i leave meetings receiving no revenue like almost clicking my heels knowing that this guy gave me some information. That is so important that it can that. I can now articulate to everyone else in the industry to see if it sticks even if even if it sticks like sometimes it doesn't stick but sometimes you get information somebody who's willing to to put put their their business critical workflows out there to you right. 'cause that's sensitive information sensitive information but like once. They understand legitimate. Trying to help me help. I'm trying to help and i understand your spreadsheets important. But how can i work with you to make sure your spreadsheet doesn't doesn't completely change in order to fit nor system so that's huge hurdle right so get that out of the way done and then from there. It's like okay. Let's let's all these problems. We're where do you see this problem like identifying together. Whatever people don't even know that they have a problem. They're not that that's what you call someone who's not an early adopter dobbin newness for years. We don't use okay. I mean you can't you can't force these types of conversations right i. It really takes a an understanding of the the right type of person who can understand this as an issue. Even though it's you know is the way it's always been done. Let's dance dance. You're kind of. You're kind of being like the whole therapist right there. You're like not thank you have a problem. Let's talk about your your what's going on your process and it's a problem. I like to go in and go through not just the process. We're trying to solve but let's look at your processes and let's collectively identify where there might be sticking points. And when was the last time you did that and i like i don't know like well don't you think it's a good exercise. In fact today. I had a four hour meeting where the company to do exactly that and there was all directors president was there and we collectively were able to identify issues within the workflow that we can fix and that we're not working on but it's great to identify those things so that it's something that they can they can explore with even if it's not with us so that that part is really exciting to me is to open when you open the books and you have that. Trust the relationship to say. Hey let's let's dig into this and if there's nothing they're fine.

"All that rolls up into your estimate cost to send to the project owner. Whoever that is was it was like are you. Here's okay and right now it's done through shared spreadsheets imo base communication text messages phone calls internal delegation. Everyone's the company. That's the contractor. Doing it has to have these expensive for our meetings. Weekly meetings to discuss where we in this gets sloppy right and you're open yourself up to fat fingers spreadsheets and or inputting things wrong or losing track of where you are in communication vendors. He's warrener's yeah there's so many there's so many painful associated with that workflow but that workflow touches multiple levels at multiple departments internally and externally so how do you approach putting a software system around that right around that that spreadsheet problem right and so we have been going at it very carefully to make sure we are addressing. All of the pain points associated with that workflow. But not saying we can do everything. So we're not gonna sit here and say we're going to be project management. We're to we're going to be the project management guys know. We want to from kickoff until you know the show shovels about to hit the ground than we export all of that into your project management tool which that is way less antiquated. There's a lot more project management tools in there are as a project coordinating right coordinating project and so but if you nail down taking that data that you're now lifting out of spreadsheets which is not a database and then accessing estimated for actual so. There's so much things you can do for. Decision makers from the c. level position to mitigate risk and all of your a all of your communication with your partners audit logged inside the system within the lockdown to line item. Even right so you have questions about something where the project status. Click a button. Let's open it up and see where the whole project is and you can thousand foot view across all your projects. Some companies have issues bulk ordering out of procurement right. Because they have this. They can't visually see all their projects going at one time. Yeah so having that done gives you the ability. So there's there's a lot of there's a lot of added benefits to it so the goal was to create a perfect system for general contractors. That's the original goal and i was. Okay i guess. I'm done with oil and gas. That's fine list the solve this problem. This is fun okay.

"Point just like mark understood. There's a pain point and guys like yourself guys like guys like me. My job is to like we can locate those people and identify what those pain points our. And we partnered with with a guy named eric. Hope who is an absolute mosser's apples like fifteen years work directly for steve jobs. He yeah he told me about the demont yes in him in his guys like essentially we have access to those programmers. Who can do insane things like what we're building right now is just swings way below it's laughable that they work on that kind of stuff as opposed to like vr or are they weren't working for a laughable cloud break when we doing so much because how antiquated enterprise software is these days it really takes the stepping stones to get us in and and really take us to a spot where you know easy and intuitive your iphone. Is you take for granted what the capability on our phones are in what in what in what consumer based technology can do. But you look at enterprise or you know business level solutions that just haven't been approached because it hasn't been done probably the the right way or does there hasn't been a direct to do it because what they were doing was still making money. As opposed to these efficiencies that half to happen now in this environment. So there's a as we talk about earlier this kind of a shift in the mindset that but that's not the important thing right now importantly is understanding where these problems are and identifying how we can solve problems because he's problems are typically spreadsheet problems and it's hard because people are so emotionally attached to a created spreadsheet that's a but if a spreadsheet your business critical workflow is done through spreadsheets. I guarantee you software would make would would make your life incredibly like so much easier and we're identifying that now across multiple industries at the same time so pretty much so people come to you. Say hey look we've been doing this for five ten years stuff still on this thing. I know there's a better way. I just don't know that better way. All this Do you get an idea. This is an issue. I don't know how to solve it. Yeah that's what we've been doing. This last year. Have been constant feedback meaning after feedback meaning after feedback meeting to understand. This is what you're this is what i'm hearing okay. This is what the problem is so you would like to see something like this. Start with big picture stuff. Let's create this. Create something big picture. So let me let me go. For example. We we have a certain. That's great let's walk. Let's walk through this because really want to learn more about this. I'm sure there's people out there. That kind of that might be listened as well. So what walk me through. This walked me through this. We have a software that we partnered with an injury expert. Using estimator at mccarthy builders okay estimating process right now as it sits is a scope of work spreadsheet. Give your internal estimate you invite you. Send that you send that spreadsheet into vendors okay. I'm sorry partners. Thank you Or subcontractors whatever whatever your terminology is right at a senate out to them and they send back their bids on it matters lump sum for the whole thing or line item whatever in then you communicate back and forth on certain things through email and at the end of the day..

"When you kinda deployed the capital and so by your townsend about a year ago when when that a year ago what they don't know about a year ago a we're coming up on november. Yes it's october. Yeah yeah coming up on an almost exactly year ago. I came over to cloud break and really what happened was during the time of the land. Grab i connected with mark oil and gas specific software engineering at the time and this was he was still early stages and he's like dude. Come work for me. And i was like dude. No it's like. I'm i'm getting i'm like i'm learning this land game like join this like we're here. We're doing this and we know this is a clear path forward here. I'm not going to start over and pave it somewhere else. Ice pivoted oil and gas is something that i'm enjoying. So no huge mistake like that dude killed it over q. And created a cool software and like opportunistic exit. All of the things that you that you love to see out of an entrepreneur right and so as as fate would bring it. I'm finishing up. I'm sitting there idly by my hate reach out the market. Hey let's workout. As a cool showed up his house during pandemic worked out he is looking rough just hair and oh it got the like the cova dog. Is she hit and go yeah. There was a rock bottom. I don't know what is right. There's a lot worse than if you just do that. Because i just messed with mark Atlanta for him right right And so he's like hey man just kind of hung out with him a little bit and then a fast forward a little bit of time. Talk to his wife in. She's kind of running the show here in. Listen we're doing this. I'm doing this And marcus dylan embarrassed at the time and then when mark left and various couple months after that He came on board with us. And you know i came. I got there. We had a. You know a few software going there really early stages and really needed a of feedback meetings so jumped right in and just silly. What was i guess. My question is yet slant on this. What was the motivation to. i mean. he talked about the whole process. Won't here kind of your mindset and kind of what you saw. And i guess you perceptions on this onboard process when we got cloud you know what i mean like. You had this land thing going right yet. I'm focused on this folks on. This was the pivot what was what caused that pivot. Like i said. I kind of worked myself out of a job right right i mean but can you do potentially something else with the land. Look at the landscape of oil and gas where we are right now and the where these positions are in. This land does land thing. We talk about and i and i was really out of land. By this point i was really moved onto a more complex. Pdp deals in operated deals and and trying to put together pieces okay companies type thing and but even from there. It was like you know. I was at a crossroads. Do i want to just create deals them to be deal creator and Understand like these people want to buy these people know that there's a there's a place for that in his guys that do really. Yes and i really was thinking about that and then i talked to..

"Wants to spend money but also there is a giant halt to life as you know and from there it was like talk to. This is the worst the worst. Nothing's happening i was like. This is a frequent opportunity. Everyone sitting at home. Nobody's doing anything in. This is an opportunity to re establish what it looks like. Do something like. How's the deal going to get done. I love that right. And so how are we going to do this. And then from there you realize everyone's picking up their phone everybody is everybody's been craving the the the communication connection the talking. Yeah yeah the first two months radio silence because everyone's kind of sitting there getting getting getting acclimated and getting some people are relishing. I'm at home. You saw that but you also saw a lot of people being this need to watch and watching the news and he saw people like okay. Don't wanna take my head up. I don't wanna take any phone calls. Because i won't be on the radar because a lay layoffs everywhere and also. Yeah and then that kind of cycle even call it real who kind of ended and then i was able to talk to some really high level. Guys you'd be like why is this guy picking up the phone but he's not getting calls and everyone sitting there worried as opposed to creating opportunities and so we were able to deploy the pretty much the rest of the capital on some really cool dude. I love let's pause right there. I think that's such a great Important to kind of bring up. Because you're right. I remember the pandemic it was either. He'll sit there with things. Return to normal as its way to you back here who literally. I think like two weeks into her like a week into it on my. I'd have to do something i have to do. Something different something new after whatever. That's gonna win the first podcast starting on that stuff app. And also i started hap-. I like to claim that i was one of the first people in the states to start doing these. These zoom happy hours. I'm gonna take credit for that. I am. I feel like i feel like i am. That's my wife that but like but you know it gave people opportunity to like look just because we can't operate how we normally do business. You know what. I mean whether it's pandemic or whether it's you can't customers today or whether it's this thurs you you need to be creative and you have to look at this time. No one's getting around knows talking. How can you be different to write create opportunity. That opportunity exact. That's the word. Yeah so ended up working myself rachel. Yeah pretty much out of a job which was great. Right deploy the capital. What do you do now. Well we don't need you anymore. That's not the conversation but that's That's i'm sitting there and by the way it wasn't a hey redone here. It was a and his awesome. Unless it here but like you. I don't sit idly by. I have to be adding value to somebody. That's not myself but you know in turn you know that is usually reciprocated.

"Wittily down high-grade keep what we think is the best of the best rock and sell the rest to private equities and really have those relationships that we talked about understanding all the private equity in the area understanding there by windows understanding the price points all of those things because i think that they allow these private equity back land companies where instead of is to deploy capital. Okay and so. They're not going to hide. Hey we're paying this much like they're going to let. This are straight up bizarre by window. This is what we're paying. This is what that kind of thing. So it's great chase. Poolings understand the price differential. Joe high-grade selloff in then. We made a pretty kleenex from the base. And we we stayed in a couple hundred wells. So did you have a lot of input to these these decisions whether to leave or the aggregate with all that stuff. I mean how. How much like that incoming overtime. Yeah okay great time. We lean pretty heavily on people that have kind of been there before Make sure you outsource some some land experience right. Okay do the things that but really when it comes to decision making You deferred people. That know what they're doing. And then you start you start learning enough to be dangerous potentially to yourself and then you make some mistakes along the way and then you you know. We made a pretty clean exit learning enough to be dangerous to yourself. What does it look. What does that mean. you can make mistakes buying things. You shouldn't buy or thinking okay. Let's put together as it's put together operated units here in caddo county if we want to and then sell that off things like that and luckily you you. You mitigate that risk by selling pieces at a time so you know okay. At least we break even here. Like mitigate your exposure exposure risk rip a people like to say that mitigates pretty pretty hot hot worthies. There's a lot of great business terms that literally do sound checks and it's already low hanging fruit synergies synergies. There's a lotta shit like but that's what we were doing. and then Made a pretty clean exit about eight months before pandemic So you're there for that you there from twenty sixteen twenty seventeen for that long..
