"Like he's not gonna be the uber mega explosive athlete that he was at the peak of his powers but man like he's working from such a huge reserves of elite athleticism. I think he could still be meant a really effective guy at both of those things both getting by people to gerbil and staying in front of people on defense and on the other side of the ball like he's got real vision. John wall is a really good passer reader of the action now. Some of that stuff is dependent on blowing past the first offender so he'll have to adapt that part of his game if he doesn't have that step but i think there's there's a good cause to trust in those instincts in the ability as was said to be one of the leaders in setting up guys in the corners that happens for a reason that understanding of geometry now is that worth forty million dollars contracts thirteen to trade for him. That's pretty different proposition. And i would say like what robbing instincts. The good comparison is bledsoe. His former kentucky teammate. Now bledsoe is a guy who's needs all the ability in the world. He's running around out there. John walls varies very smart player. So i would expect chill of an easier time. Transitioning as he was in his thirties. That assume like bledsoe. yeah. I mean the clippers definitely seem like they're most comfortable or probably at their best in the smaller unit where they're just surrounding guy shooting pretty much every position while obviously not much of a shooter doesn't maybe matter as much. If you're putting reggie. Jackson co why paul george marcus morris doing some version of of a death lineup and then just like making sure that he is is optimized there. I am curious though if this does come to a buyout and may have a bunch of other options on the table. are there any better ones. Rob can you think of a team that might need wall and wall might need them in to rehab is value and maybe get some money back the following year. Well i think going to. The clippers is a bio candidate is the best case scenario for them if they can get him without trading those guys. That would be incredible for their team. I think the celtics are probably one of the best fits out there. Just because wall gives you so much of what the best version of insured does and a lot more though. I think the the one caveat to that is reporting around the extension. That marcus smart signed with the celtics is like there is an understanding that smart would be the starter at point. If there's kind of an agreement there that that's his his job his role maybe bring in a guy like wall is a problem but just in terms of talent and fit and teams that are in the right place to want a player like john. I think boston makes all the sense in the world. Will marcus smart. Taking pull up steph. Curry threes interfere with his role started team. More is that part of the job description. Me doco right yeah. No i actually boston as a fit for sure. Another team that's been sorely lacking playmaking throughout the years right as their main to perimeter gaza. Good at good scoring dues. They're not good table. Setters set up gaza. Although at the tatum is taken a lot of strides in that department since he's been drafted right. That was kind of my least favorite thing about. Tatum felt like a gunner very early on his career. But he's gotten better at finding guys. I think still. This team needs table setters. That's like boston. The clippers boss'll as a younger clippers. Team that's why. I kind of makes sense for wall in those two spots. The million dollar question with this stuff or the ninety two million dollar question with this stuff is we'll john wall the backup. Is he willing to back up another guard because if not so many teams out there. Either have uninstalled veteran and are a playoff team already. And they don't have reason to shake things up or they have a good young guard in place where they want to evaluate and develop and wall doesn't really make sense for their timelines. Said there's really just this kind of sweet spot of teams like the clippers like the celtics teams that are hungry to get further in the playoffs or break into the playoffs..

"That's on the cusp. And he's actually performing in helping them and taking them to another level. That's one thing. I don't know the job was going to perform that right. Like it's one thing to be overpaid. It's and i know this is gonna sound very profound but it's another thing that'd be vastly over chow. Wall is a this is gonna be tough. I'm going to be watching this closely because again you know. We'll get into this with aaron gordon but he is in clutch. We trust you know the way they do. Business is a lot different from a lot of people. So i'm i'm interested to see kids handle the thing about being overpaid too is. It's not just seeing a number and getting the sticker shock and the exorbitant salary. It just makes it more difficult to move other than the kinds of scenarios that sharks laid out with the clippers where you have multiple veterans on contracts worth like ten fifteen million or more. It's just hard to get enough money together much less to actually want this version of john wall. Will i wanna talk about the clippers. Part of this because charges suggestion was interesting. Because i thought about the clippers is option if he were to get bought out. I honestly couldn't come up with a single team. Who would actively trade for john wall on his contract. Which for the record is two years point. One seven million dollars The second year is a player option. He will most likely be taking that player option. And so like. Why do you think that fit makes sense. Like if you're just giving up like guys who are essential to the title-winning product with lsd. You like him in on team as a hope of course because john walls back in his heyday you know when he was leading the league in corner. Threes generated stuff like that like he was an incredible playmaker. He was incredible guys up. If finding open shooters and you know driving kick type of game like he was amazing at that he kind of left it. Because sometimes i think guys don't feel content being a table center. They feel like you. Get your name in sportscenter by getting buckets write. Hashtag buckets has to do the bucket..

"John wall seems like his era in. Houston which i think amount of forty games most of what she was injured or playing on a very very sad. The are are are or e. r. a. Which was it's good. Should write some headlines for this is a sham story after meeting and seeing eye-to-eye in the direction of the houston rockets so the rockets and john wall both see the situation the same. They are on. The same page is a joint agreement. The franchise and john wall have agreed to work on finding a new home for the five time. All star guard. The plan is for wall to remain present in air quotes in training camp. Don't know what that means. But he's not going to play games the writing on the wall. He's probably the footsteps of andre drummond. Didn't blake griffin's on these guys from last year who just sat on the bench and waited for trade and then inevitably got bought out my question charkes. Do you think that there ever will be a trade for john. Wall ours is inevitably going to head to a by situation. I was gonna say wet remain. Present means is not paula. James heart like that's just so that means and i think there is a trade out there. I was actually looking at this morning. I think the clippers make sense. John wall they can throw together. Some contracts They put up. Eric bledsoe luke kennard surge baca. That would make sense for john wall. I think he'd actually fit in l. A. with paul. George this season with choline next year i mean to me. That's the one thousand nine actually makes sense to do this. And i'm kind of buying as you're bringing this up. I go to google john. Walls name and the first suggestion. Is john walden john wall contracts and when i heard this yesterday you know thought about his is one of the deals along with westbrook along with chris paul that when they were signed the chris paul rocket steel that when they were signed. Everybody's kind of made a face like this is not gonna look nice in a few years and you know to the credit of chris paul and west westwood one is contract has been moved quite easily basically since he got signed and we thought it was untradable chris paul as a matter of fact got a new deal right after the contract. That was pretty sizeable. But john wall. I think it's gonna be is going to be tough to move this thing because you forgot to be making forty two million dollars which is like all right. Let's just say it was mike conley and what he did on utah last year right like it's a big as contract but as a team..

"It's the contract that really complicates things here for his situation. So it'll be interesting to see how the Houston Rockets do handle this. It is a bit ironic. I mean, they go from Chris Paul to Russell Westbrook tonight and John wall and here we are. But it is good to hear that is an amicable situation. It says John wall demanding out. This is both sides came together and said, look, this is the reality of this situation. Let's work together and let's see what we can find. And so that's where now John wall's agency, they can go around to teams around the NBA and they can openly talk like, hey, what are you, what can you guys offer? What can we create here and they don't have to do anything secret behind closed doors because both sides are on the same page. And I think that does help the process. Yeah, for sure. Now, for the rocket side, without John wall playing, opens the path, Kevin Porter junior at much like he was after he got traded there is going to be the starting point guard for the Houston Rockets going into next season. My guess is they might bring Jalen green on along a little slowly. Maybe Eric Gordon starts initially, but my guess is by the holidays, it's Kevin Porter junior and Jalen green are playing all the meaningful minutes in that rockets backcourt and then the vets like Gordon DJ Augustine, David dewa, those guys are just going to be filling in here and there for those guys back up minutes. At this point, they're still trying to move Eric Gordon. We know that. That's been going on for months now that that's been rumored. So we'll see. But yeah, Kevin Porter junior, he wasn't bad. It's going to be bumpy at times, so it was, but why not you're not a good team, you might as well see if you can turn them into a point guard because if you can, you have an infinitely more valuable player than just an off ball wing player, which Porter probably is never going to shoot it enough to give you a ton of value there, but as an on ball guy, you might have something there..

"Not trying to be a competitive team this season or maybe even next season. They know that they're rebuilding. That's why they were content to use for first round draft picks. Just this past draft because they're not trying to build this thing up very quickly that they want to be. They want to be competitive, but they're not. They're not fool themselves. They know they're not at playoff contender or anything like that. So they're not going to be given up first round picks to get off this. It's quite frankly a little hard for them to trade first round picks because old Oklahoma City are owns a handful of them. Well, so does that just mean that there's I mean, it's hard to see a path to a trade where they don't have to give up something in order to move. John wall was not terrible if you look at his numbers 20 and 7 with four percentages. That's basically what we thought he would be, right? Decent point guard who can put up points, but just doesn't do it very efficiently, and that's what we saw from him last season. But looking around the NBA, number one, what teams need a point guard right now? And number two, what teams have the assets to stack up to equal that 40 plus million that you have to get to in order to trade for John wall. That is going to be a real challenge to find a taker for him to the point where you got to wonder how do they eventually move, especially if they're not willing to attach any type of asset to him in order to incentivize a team to take on that contract. Exactly. And it's that first part, so let's eliminate that is salary pieces of it. Let's just say there was no. Yeah, who needs a point guard? Really nobody. At this point, the clippers maybe ish. These wall better than Reggie Jackson? I have my doubts at this point. Is he better than Eric Bledsoe? Yeah, probably didn't probably get me there. But I mean, the rest of the league, nobody really jumps off the page as boy, they really need a point guard. The Celtics were there, but, of course, they signed Dennis Schroeder pretty late in the game and they're not going to make a move like this, not after everything they did to try to get things done. I don't think it's going to be a big enough selling point. Here we have John wall Bradley Beal. You want to come here too? Oh wait, we can't because we traded all those salaries to get John wall..

"Keith, let's start things off with John wall, a Houston rocket for now. But will not be a Houston rocket into the future. It sounds like he is going to be treatable. The rockets are hoping. They're hoping anyway. Let's get into that. What's going to happen here? The rockets, John wall working together to try to find a trade and he will not play any more games for Houston. Yeah, so this is that working together part is where it's very different from the 76ers and Ben Simmons who are not exactly working together. They're kind of working apart right now. So it sounds like by all accounts John wall has been very good in his time in Houston. He's been somebody that the younger players have really come to rely on for leadership. He's been a great leader for them. In the rockets are looking at insane. Look, we have a ton of guards that we want to play young guards to Kevin Porter junior, jaylen green, Josh Christopher, just adding in the last couple of years. Kyrie Thomas, who we picked up on a late season edition last year and he played quite well for them. So they want to play those guys. They don't necessarily want to play John wall, nor do they want to have John wall get hurt in kind of completely ruined maybe whatever little tiny modicum of trade value he may have left. There's no other way to slice this. It's 91.6 million. That he is owed. It's bad money. There's John wall would probably say at the same thing. Good for John wall for getting him what he did. And this is why you should never criticize a pointer for taking a max contract when it's offered to him. Team, other story we can have there. But at the time this contract was offered, wasn't necessarily as a bad contract. And either he's one of the first class of supermax guys to get it. So yeah, so what they're going to do is they're going to have them come to camp. He sounds like he's going to be there to kind of almost be like a glorified assistant coach.

How to Increase Sales 20% Using Predictive Analytics with John Wall

"Right. Everyone welcome to digital conversations. I'm your host billy bateman and today i am joined by podcasting legend john wall partner at trust insights and co host of marketing over copy. John thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me here billy. I appreciate it yeah. I'm really excited for this man so Before we get into it we're going to talk a lot about predictive analytics attribution the your data cleanliness within marketing. But before we get into that. Let's learn a little bit about you and what you do so tell us about yourself and a little bit about your journey. Yes sure so. I'm a partner at trust insights a marketing analytics firm. We we light up dark data which is our kind of data detectives. We help people figure out what's working in their marketing. What's not working where to go next. But my career path has been kind of crazy. I mean as far as marketing tech. i've been in the startup world since about ninety seven and have gone through. This is like my seventh startup. and we're actually three years in. I mean we're well beyond startup phase. But i've kind of cycled through a number of times and then before that. My background is actually economics. I graduated with a degree in econ. So i've always come at the marketing thing from the you know the quantitative analysis side and tried to automate as much as possible. So yeah it's been a long crazy path and a bunch of while pitstops along the way but everything with trust insights is going well and then the most of what we do at trust insights originally started when i was working with christopher penn. We started this podcast marketing over coffee about going on like fifteen years now. But we've you know every week talk about marketing and tech and that has just kind of finally gotten to a point where it's brings in clients for us for trust insights. We have a reputation as knowing about keeping an eye on what's going on in what's changing because the space is so crazy and dynamic and That has helped us build a community that were able to kind of trade ideas within could talk about. What's going on with martin and it's works. Well awesome awesome. Okay so you guys do a lot of work with predictive analytics and nice buzzword. I don't think a lot of people really know like what does that. What does that amount to in the real world. So i think what was just start there so when you guys were talking about predictive analytics what are you looking at. And what can you help. People forecast yeah. The most common thing that we did for. Predictive is topic analysis. You know we'll go take a look at grab a library of terms. Our chief data scientist christopher. Penn will run that against a number of models that he has and so the most common example that we use. We have a blog post. We update every year called the cheese report where we look at all the cheeses in the market and we come up with a calendar for the next twelve months. That says okay. These are when specific cheeses are going to be hot and moving and so if somebody who's creating content for website if you're in the cheese industry you know you know that come may and june. You'd better be teeing up all your content and videos about halloo me and i didn't even know who he was a thing until i read the cheese report and as we dug in. It's a grilled cheese so it always peaks in the summers when people are looking for louis. Recipes are wanna buy hulu me. It's because they're getting ready to throw it on the grill in july and so and then you know as you keep digging into the data you'll see mozzarella's on fire around christmas time Cheddar right around new year's as everybody's doing parties Monterey jack comes in around the super bowl when people making nachos and so the idea is that by looking at all this data and looking ahead you can't predict the future and say hey we want to drop our content on these weeks because we know there's going to be demand the week following that and you know we will have had content in place for a couple of weeks before the surge. It's you know these models can be applied to anything. I mean if you have enough sales data you can look and say you know get an idea for maybe what your seasonal sales cycle will be but we often find in. Beat a be that. There's just not enough data to really get effective models going But you know as far as applying that same model to other stuff. Women's shoes we have a client that uses the women's shoes fashion reports. So they know you know six to three months out from black friday. What's going to be hot and specific kinds of shoes and and where to go. It's and it's gotten a little bit rough You know it used to be rock-solid we kinda generate models and they would just always be you know ninety five percent greater confidence interval. You know we would just know that pretty much certain covert has kinda thrown a wrench in things. There's there's been a massive change in search behavior and so a lot of markets have been messed up so it's not as easy as it used to be. We used to kind of be able to say yeah. We can definitely do that for everything. And now a lot of projects. We'd say low will look will go in there and will run some models and we'll get back to if we think we can do some predictive because it's a lot more difficult than it used to be. Yes so with covid would what are you. Seeing is the changes and just consumer behavior since Yeah in one way. It's not radically different. Really what people have been saying. Some of the state we've seen is that it's it's as if we just jumped five years ahead you know we've kind of been on this ramp of ecommerce going in this direction and eating up one more brick and mortar and suddenly as if we just jumped ahead five years into the future because everybody now is forced to go online for purchases where there's this group of people who still like to go to you know the local big to buy stuff and now they have no choice because of the toilet paper gone or they don't want to go outside their risk or whatever so that's one thing

You Are What You Subscribe To

"All right. So i wanted to share with you something that my wife. Carrie ann i did the first At the beginning of the new year. And that's We sat down and we reviewed everything that both of us were subscribed to and we sorta did a purge and a respectful and together. We said you know what kind of content do we love. What do we want to learn This year what should we stop consuming. What should we start consuming and we did this very thoughtful very proactively over the course of about an hour and the high here for me is. I think it's important to be very very careful. Whose ideas that you let into your brain you know. We only have so much brain shelf space and we only have so much. Time to consume books podcasts Whatever the case you tubes whatever we like to consume and so being very thoughtful about what we put into our brain is actually a very important thing and i think there we put some shit in our head. That can hurt us pretty badly. You know if you're a longtime listener you know Have no love for the hustle stars. And i think they've done more damage to entrepreneurs and marketers than any recent group in history For a simple example you. I've heard hustle porn star. Say hustles the most important word the english language. Well i've also heard hustle porn star. Say no one ever worked himself to death well in japan they have a word for it. It's called karoshi and it translates into death by overwork. So nonstop hustling for twenty. Five years is probably not what you want to do. In addition even worse maybe is. You can hustle all you want but there's a difference between hard work and smart work hamsters hustle in their wheels to and they don't get anywhere. So what's your hustling about matters. And if you're a regular listener you know that i believe that Legends become known for a niche. That they own. So if you're hustling to design your own category that's one thing. If you're hustling trying to compete with an entrenched category king. You're gonna be in for a world of pain and yet millions and millions of business people still consume the stupidities of these hustle porn stars every day and the marketing and entrepreneur. World is stuffed with stupid ideas. Here's another example that drives me nuts minimum viable product. Why is this a good idea. Who the fuck said we. The first thing we deliver to the world should be something called a minimum viable product. It should be called a product. You fucking think is legendary and awesome and you wanna share with the whole world nother just dumb dumb dumb. I could go on with a very long list of very dumb ideas that are marketed to marketers and entrepreneurs all the time the bottom line is be very thoughtful about what you put in your brain because what you put in your brain is what you get out of your life now. Personally i like to go back to some of. Oj's peter drucker can touch him he. He's the original management thinker. His book the effect of executive changed my life by way of example. David ogilvy david. Ogilvy david ogilvy. If you're an entrepreneur if you're a marketer you're not a student of david ogilvy get on it. I go back and look at it all the time. Another one you might love in a similar vein is george lois. He sort of the punk rock version of david. Ogilvy check him out also. Of course the geez of positioning. Our reese and jack trout the so i love to go back and look at a lot of the original masters now some of the newer things that i love checking out is Check out a master class. This is incredible way to learn how to do to be taught writing by malcolm gladwin by way of example or taught how to do a three point shot by None other than steph curry. They have legendary people in many many different domains teaching their skills. It's an incredible product. Love masterclass podcast. You might wanna check out and this is not an extensive example or an extensive list. It's just an example of a few. That i like One of the jeez of marketing podcasts. Marketing over coffee by my buddy john wall and his partner. Christopher penn legendary Venture capitalists mike. Maples junior. his podcast is called. Starting greatness insanely great. Another legendary entrepreneur. Podcast is called no bowl and it's created by my buddies paul martinez and randy comas. And it features that teaching of the legendary bill campbell. Who was none other than steve. Jobs is coach if you're in the b. two b. world couple of podcasts. I love dave gerhardt's b. to b. marketing leaders. Podcast check it out. G. is emerging og. He's awesome My buddy brian burns has the One of the top sales podcast for b. two b. people be to be revenue leadership and the brutal truth about sales and selling brian burns. Check him out. And then the other one i like on sort of the lead gen funnel management Get leads enclosed shit online in the more beat. A sea world is russell brunson and he's got a whole series of podcasts and books most of them have the word secrets in them. Checkout marketing secrets podcasts. And he's all about hooks and offers and driving traffic and all of that stuff so those are just a couple to think about but most importantly i'm encouraging you to sit down and ask yourself a couple of key questions.

Portland Trail Blazers lose another starter, can’t sustain hot first quarter, fall 104-101 at Houston Rockets

"Start with the blazers any rockets. The first game of the tnt double header on thursday houston is a team. I find it hard not to cheer for. I'm in the corner of john. Wall demarcus cousins and victor oladipo may because they suffered huge injuries in the past major surgeries. And i'm an empathy guy. I wanna see them recover. I wanna see them fight battle. Get back to their old sells like john wall said after the game everybody on this roster has something to prove. Those three guys have been cast off by the role teams. It's a good story but at the same time they have suffered major injuries. They've got a guy on their roster. Who's young spry and should be dominating. The league at the center spot christian would is playing well this year but i think he should be featured a little bit more. He only had twelve shots against the portland. Trailblazers that usage rate should be. Hi you're he. Is that good now. The rockets won this game. They're down twenty early to the blazers. They came back the blazers shooting because they love to shoot their last in the league in points in the paint. The shooting almost overcame their defensive. Problems they just allow too many buckets. The rockets have full strength though. Should have beat this blazers team up bad c. J. mecom still out. He's out for at least a couple more weeks. Yousef nurkic also out for the blazers. I in this game shouldn't have gone down to the wire i'm sure. Tnt would beg to differ with that. They had a game. Go down to the wire. It was exciting but this rockets team needs to find the right hierarchy It's it's an interesting balance. Victor oladipo going into a contract year. I think should be operating a little bit. More within the system and christian would should be the guy scoring ton the blazers continue to fire away from deep like they always do and they got some performances dame lillard of course. She had five threes thirty points. Overall gary. junior was the surprise seven. Three's twenty three points. Overall and three of those threes were consecutive in the fourth quarter.

NBA: John Wall scores 24 as Houston Rockets beat Russell Westbrook, Washington Wizards

"John wall scores twenty four to lead the rockets over the wizards one zero seven to eighty eight lee big takeaway from well. It was a pretty close game until john. Wall really took over the last seven minutes. There hit a couple of shots made some plays and and got his victory now. Coming into this was a couple of story lines of course beal and and john wall would teammates here in washington for a lot of years now. Their relationship didn't really end in a hostile way. It was more just like the team moved on. So john wall was more trying to prove a point to his team. In the franchise and the wizards rather than ex teammate there. I in bradley bill. And then you also of course you had wall and russell westbrook who were traded for each other just prior to the season and now that one was a little bit more spicy. But i think that's probably more westbrook than in the us both on a minute restriction but yeah i mean it was. It was a close game but The the rockets pulled away in the end. And really i mean i. it's post game. You saw bradley. Beal who had another good performance for the washington wizards just looking completely distressed on the sidelines. And really the question. Out of this game is we've been kind of asking and alluding to the last couple of weeks. Anyways is does bradley. Beal stay with wizards for the rest of this season. Because they going nowhere right now. He's putting up right numbers. There's no question. He would be in demand and i think he needs to move on from the wizards as well. So you know. That's that's probably the biggest talking point. I think coming out of this guy because you know it's it's not neither seems really a a threat to was. The rockets guess could make the playoffs but Certainly not a contender. So it's really just do. The wizards hit the reset button. He move on from bradley. Beal may even move from westbrook if they can get a first round. Pick out of him because I just can't see this thing going anywhere for the remainder of this season. Yeah every loss. That piles up there for the wizards trae. It does feel like the echo chamber gets a little louder with the trade deal. Save bill get him out of there. Hey beal ask the front office to move you. There are three in ten now. they're one in eighteen games. Westbrook has played. He has not looked great. He was He was just visibly upset last night. And then you started talking. Some trash with wall was given it back to them and walson after the game russ has been kicking my ass for years. My third win against russell westbrook that he's been in the league this john wall talk it so i don't know if it's any more than that just a frustrated westbrook but yeah what do you think about the idea of will be just like go to front office. They do not want to be here. Because i don't want to be on a team. That's not going to be a playoff tournament in just signed that huge deal though right like he's still got two seasons after this one the westbrook in wall donnybrook. What happened there Westbrook goes by wall walls down and it seems to me like he was basically saying yeah. I tripped because you could see westbrook saying back to him. It doesn't matter what matters like as he upset is wallops at that. Westbrook is trash talking him for tripping over his own. That's what it might have been. They hit him with the double tax. And everybody just moved on. But if you're bradley beal despite the fact he's got this huge deal still on the books to be frustrated man because he had twenty five through the first three quarters and then in the fourth quarter it feels like he's not even getting the ball like feels like he's barely getting a touch. I know he had eight points. He took a bunch of shots but there are times when he just doesn't even get a look from westbrook he'll just be standing at the top of the court. It feels like kevin durant waiting to get the ball all over again. But i don't know you kind made your bed now sleep in it.

James Harden says Rockets 'can't be fixed' as Houston reportedly talks trade with at least six teams

"First thing you need to know is that james harden wants out of houston. Oh you already knew that. Well now james harden really wants houston and he's not just showing it with his play which has been the case this season but he's essentially saying it in postgame press conferences after the second loss in a row to the los angeles lakers consecutive losses. Here where they got smashed. The rocket said they lost by seventeen but they were down by twenty one in the first quarter it was over used when teams play twice the team that lost the first game fights back on his play has been lacklustre but in the post game press conference he answered two questions and then he walked right off. I answer was essentially. We're not good enough now. We're not good enough. The second answer quote. I love the city. I literally have done everything that i can. I mean the situation is crazy. It's something that i don't think can be fixed. And he walked off and that's essentially what he's doing to the houston rockets. It's kind of like the. Anthony davis situation a couple years ago in new orleans work. Anthony davis was halfheartedly. Playing it was very very evident. It was very awkward to watch it for pelican's fans and the entire league. It became an issue in. The commissioner's office eventually. Anthony davis sat down. He wore that. That's all folks sweater and evening with. That's all folks wafaa. Foulkes harden wants to be dealt now and is not good for the locker room there in houston where new rocket john wall has to answer questions and his basically saying that guy doesn't want to be here he said after the game but when you have certain guys in the mix that don't want to buy in it's going to be hard to do anything special or anything good as a basketball team will. There is one really really really good player on that team. And it's james harden but he does not want to be there anymore more evident after his first three games this season it was a showcase. He scored thirty seven per game in those first three games. He sat down for one game. Basically said all right. I've shown that good. I've got the track record. He's averaged seventeen over his last five. I really hope the league doesn't have to intervene. But james harden was hoping himself that he was walking from that press conference onto a plane and on his way to another team at sherwood. It felt like watching that press conference.

"The future of whether the Houston Rockets with John Wall we're gonna be competitive in this Western conference or not hinges on James Harden's happiness. And that Wall has to answer those questions. Because hardened isn't talking to the media post game. I feel bad for John Wall right now. Bogus. How about you? Yeah, I mean, lots been written about John Wall since this treat things that I didn't really know about, like, how deeply connected he was to the D C area how much respect he had and back and forth respect with those outside the organization in the media stuff like that Feel like all of a sudden, John Wallace kind of gun up my MBA person power rankings, so to speak, and now he's in the situation that you're right. He didn't ask for You know they were their own issues in Washington about their future choices around him. And Bradley Beal. We had Russell Westbrook one thing out of Houston so well that we've got wall here in Houston now. And here. He's just he's in this no win scenario. He wants to keep James Harden because that makes them better and makes them useful in the West. But Can't imagine. James Harden is there for too much longer. If he is there he is going to be pouting and maybe eating and it's not going to be great for John Water all see him in this. This just sucks for a guy. All I want to do is get back on the court and play and win some games. Exactly Wait so long to get back on the court in everybody has to deal with And to me. There's one of three scenarios that unfold here for John Wall and take your pick a James Harden somehow just ends up there. The Rockets can't find a trade partner hard, maybe unhappy at first, But you know, wall ends up playing well and maybe they find chemistry. They suck it up, and the Rockets end up being a pretty good team this year in the West. Option B is hardened gets the heck out. Who knows where the trade from save the match salaries and John Wall ends up having a Chris Paul in Oklahoma City type year where you thought the team would stink, but he ends up bringing some leadership and he's pretty good. The team actually is better than you expect, or C John Wall just looks like an aging super, so it's not the same back from injury doesn't have James on the runway with and we just kind of forget about the once promising career of John Wall the team's thinks behind him. I think you should go one of those three ways for war and obviously is hoping it's not option number three. Yeah, I even think I mean, two of them are kind of negative. Right? So I mean, there's only one kind of good one where everything is happy and good And on guy. That's the one that seems almost lead least likely. I don't think there's going to go away from James Harden. Now he may at some point realized Can't be traded right now, so I need to suck it up and move forward, at least just be an acceptable teammate. But even that seems to be a big ass for the way that hard news going about his business right now. So, Yeah, this is just It's all hardens fall. Basically, he's like the peak of the Rockets, everything. It's playing back on him and John ones of being a victim.

They decided to cash it in in the twenty twenty Twenty twenty three. Nba draft pick is lottery protected. Twenty twenty four the pick. His top twelve protected. The twenty twenty-five pick is top ten protected and then if they want to wait if you want to wait all the way to twenty twenty six to pick his top aide protected then becomes two second rounders now.

Clarify define a little bit more when he speaks about he wants to quote unquote be- himself. Are we talking about the wessel russell. Westbrook that won the where he averaged a triple double. Is that the himself. He wants to be at so that was income through the door and being that effective. I would like to see the be himself. Russell westbrook be the guy that the second year. When he was with paul george where george with the guy that was getting most of the shadow attempts that i wouldn't say was taking a backseat. But you know. He was starting to give more and more of the spotlight to paul george in terms of the acknowledgement that. Hey you know what. We're going to have the team that we want to have the best team that we can be. you know. i've got to be more than just sharing with paul george to give him a little bit more in terms of responsibility at least on offense with the oklahoma city thunder so with him going from houston with james harden and now moving over to play with bradley beal with the team.

Rockets’ Russell Westbrook Traded to Wizards for John Wall

"Brian windhorst who. I saw yesterday on tv when early in the morning. I saw brian. When i found out that my found out the night before i guess late the night before that westbrook had moved from houston for wall in washington and is everybody knows because they've heard me say two thousand times. I love this trade for washington. But i thought brian would have a better perspective on it because he hasn't been burdened by having to watch the washington wizards for x. amount of years. John wall go nowhere absolutely nowhere. So let me let me start with the most obvious thing and take my prejudices out of this. Why do you make this trade. If you're houston well. I think this is really about the other stars involved. I mean it's hard to say that when you're talking about you know all star. I mean all star point guards. It'd be nine. yeah well. Isn't it all star today. And they and then they forty million dollars. They could traded for each other. I mean this is the definition of a blockbuster. But i'm sitting here saying this is about bradley. Beal james harden and it's different for both of them This is i think houston trying to salvage the situation. Which is they know that. They absolutely positively no westbrook. It are not going work out together. and so they're trying to find a way to keep their fingers in the dam so to speak. I do not think it's going to work I think the fact that they got the first round pick And i think they also hedging. And i don't think this is a strong bat. I wanna be clear. But they're also hedging that if wall recovers from this achilles That it might be better to have him for the next three years and russell westbrook. But i mean you know you're not staking your application on that I think hard and we'll be out of there by the trade deadline. Which looks like it's going to be in late march Maybe well before. But that's what they're trying to do and washington. I you know this is about holding bradley. Beal i mean i don't think it's a revolutionary idea that they have transitioned from john wallace their franchise player to bradley beal. This is clear and while Trust me there are plenty of people out there who have checked in with the wizard checked in with bradley beal however they do that. Are you happy in washington. The answer is still. Yes but the wizards are very aware that that may not be yes indefinitely and so this trade they trade free guy who was on the nba team. Last year. He was thirteen nba And he will in theory. Give them some more ammunition this year to compete with charlotte in atlanta who have upgraded. Their rosters and the wizards need to make the playoffs. This year or i think bradley beal could be out of there. And that's a move in this direction. Is it a slam dunk. Tony no but i think will be a upgrade from what they can expect from john wall.

"I mean we remember the last thirty games that season the first thirty games. That season was horrendous for the rockets. So i i don't know it's intriguing but again i'm i'm not super sold on houston either way as james harden. They're going to be pretty good but the west five saigo head. What were you saying. They have a thirty five and a half when total vegas over under over under thirty five and a half months while i gotta remember that. It's seventy two seventy two so thirty six lawson so basically you're betting that james harden doesn't get traded. It sounds like what is that on. That i would be over. Yeah i don't think the james aren't gets traded this year. At least that's just my opinion but yeah i take the over two hours. Probably one of the unheralded benefits about this trade for houston mark. You and cody kind of touched on. Is that the place versatility. That he has now is just like gives them a lot of different looks that they didn't have before you knew they were gonna play small before now. They can go like an average size lineup with christian would at the five They can go small with. Pj tucker at the five or they go like ultra-big with christian. What at the four and buggy at the five if buggy is reasonably playable. I'm so out like i'm sorry. I have to just say that right away until i see boogie cousins actually mobile on the court again. I'm not going to believe in it Like i i mean. I hope for the guy actually not really because he some shady stuff off court But you know it. At the. I mean i sent this to you guys a joke but like the. What's the over under on games. That that john wall and because actually plays next year. I've said at fifty five which is not entirely unreasonable. Like i don't know But yeah as far as i'm concerned he's he's coming off the bench to start the year. So yeah and he probably will. It's like kinda like we touched on before house money. If he's good but they do have more looks. I think they can at least play like an average sized lineup with christian at the five even if bogies not not playable. St stephen silas coaching history.

But yeah, I'm sure I'm sure there was you know, I I mean, you know, if you if you thinking of taking a photo with like a bunch of kilos of coke on the table, that's one thing if there's people smoking blunts the background, I mean you no weed legal in most of the country. I don't think that's a problem right? Although you know, we know that that while it doesn't have The reputation of you know working as hard as he could although I think they tried to dispel that notion in these, you know videos of him training which you know, he looks like he's moving as well as a used to in those videos. But then again we have to have seen on the floor and the other thing is you could train you know, as hard as you can and will not simulate a real game and for someone who hasn't played for two years. I just wonder how long it's going to take for him to gain any semblance of Rhythm and and comfortability out there. Well, I mean the problem with with John Wall and I've talked to people that were that like, you know have been around John Wall. They know firsthand Ali issue with him isn't Thursday doesn't work on this craft and stuff like that like two dudes an amazing basketball player. You don't you know, you don't do that without going to the gym three hours a day to work on your game. The problem with him was that he would party too hard and he would take care of his body during the off-season. He wouldn't stay in shape and like we know that was a problem because his body fell apart on him because he wasn't taken care of himself because he would show up to training camp out of shape, you know off Nobody will ever forget what he showed up for Team USA and he was like thirty pounds overweight and luckily he had been on the vendor for three weeks. That's cuz that's exactly what was happening. And you know, that's there's a lot of players that do stuff like that. Plenty of players and drink a lot and the party hard and I'm sure they do a lot of drugs and they come, you know catch up with a lot of these guys and some of these guys are able to put together. I mean, you know, we know James Harden age constantly comes out of shape. We know he's a hardcore partier. We know who loves himself a bottle and us here too. But he's somehow is able to stay healthy and again his body into his own. We're even if she still looks like he's out of shape. His cardio is still out of the out of this world. He's able to play at a pretty incredible level. Although then again, he every single year in the playoffs. He tends to flame out pretty early in his team loses track of it. So I guess maybe because of the he has like some of the highest usage of in NBA history he needs to you know, he doesn't have any margin for error and we know that John is really abused on margin for error and that dog Part of why his career has gone the way it has..

"Because they already dealt one of the they got back for roco so i think they really need to hold out and get something good for him and the brooklyn package is not that as much as i like kerris spencer did when he and jared allen. Yeah it's it's funny too. Because i think i i don't i don't wanna say that i i hate the narrative. James harden ran people out of town. But you like just looking at it you play with white howard for what three years They make the western conference finals. Obviously that doesn't work out. dwight's gone Trade for chris fall. he's gone Make the trade for russ four c. p. three and we saw that turns out and now russ wants out at some point. You have to walk in. Be like okay. We'll part of this is on james harden like i'm not trying to be again like you mentioned i don't wanna be a talking head but that's just the fact of the matter man like james is hard dude to play with us. An insanely good basketball player But i think it does kind of come back on him a little bit. I still would definitely say a lot is until dog but that's a whole other story in in debt. I think the hardest part to stomach as the houston. Rockets is you went from chris. Paul to james harden You gave up three picks total in that process right so you gave out four for russ and got one back for john wall. Like that's just i. I don't know what they're going to do in the future but like just keep me up at night knowing knowing that happened. Yeah that's that's worse than non making this trade that they just made. Now that's a good point. Maybe it was a sunk cost with the cpi three frustrate. You know leave afraid. Ross because of how much have your vote about form you know if you see a win winnable trade. Can you pull the trigger either way. Yeah houston is kind of playing with house money here right. Because if john wall is bad they blow it up on trade harden. They got worse. And it's gonna make their better if john wall was good. Then he's going to sell tickets in the fans are gonna have fun at the games and john wall's going to be fun to watch again so everyone's going to enjoy their time. So if he i think the signals the houston rebuild. kind of. it's just a matter of them holding out for what they can get for harden annual houses playing with house money in the bubble. We want to throw trade changes. No unless you guys want to you like..

"A lottery-protected and if it's in the office really don't get it in 2024, it stopped 12. So if it's not 12, they won't get it and then a twenty twenty-five its top 10 and then by 2026 it stop eight. So it's you know, I don't remember too often seem traded this magnitude where you have to wait over a year for that years. Yeah for a pick potentially that long but here's what's going to happen. Right? Russ Goes to Washington. I mean how many divorces you have left 3 to yeah that that that pic is probably not going big unless Bradley Beal has turned into an MVP and he's still there somehow right? I don't really I don't think that pig is pig. Right. So you're thinking they're they're going to end up being bad enough where they're going to be in the top, you know top ten or so at least through 2026. It's probably right although Beale might end up leaving. I mean, who knows. So essentially the likelihood is more I would say it's what 60/40 that it's going to be two second-rounders. So perhaps that's a wash and then so you think we're going to be more in tune with having a guy who wins his trade based on the actual players and their and their production versus the payment for sure for sure. I mean unless John Wall gets re-injured. His career is over. I think Houston winces trade-off, you know, I mean this cuz this isn't this isn't a I don't think Russ is a sustainable solution for for retaining Bradley Beal. This doesn't this is a really fix the dynamic necessarily that has been an issue for them in Washington. Although at least it gets them a player on the floor, which I think they're just so desperate for at this point that they're willing to do, whatever but yep. Looks like maybe Russ is really more valuable because he actually provides the leadership that they need so, you know just like this trade wasn't a bad trade for anybody. It just said I think that the the games that they're going to get out of it aren't like that aren't substantials of the point that it's some sort of Superstar Blockbuster that change of the face of the lead kind of thing. But you know what? I mean, I bought a gang sign thing was definitely a real concern with John the lack of just the lack of leadership and accountability with John Wall was a major problem for this team and it it's something that it's a real young team with a lot of like they have a lot of good players that are going to make up the rotation of a good playoff team in the future at some point if they can get that core in order, but they need to have somebody leading the team that is going to really show them the way and really hold them accountable and I actually think they're Russell be a great fit for that and rust being in a situation where he's dead. Play next to somebody doesn't pound the air out of the ball and Bradley Beal and Bradley Beal's like the someone who's really well-liked and regarded and works, you know, at least by example and that kind of thing, but is it really something that's kind of seen as like a culture center kind of player. Russ is really renowned for being a culture culture center. And at least most of the guys and play with them. They talk about him. Like he's one of the most impactful people that they've ever met their lives. So I think from that sense it definitely makes a lot from that from that perspective..

"I think so that eight seat is up for grabs. And they just strengthen their case. I think a significant significant degree. I kind of want to speak on houston side of it because well i'd love for i'd like it for both sides to be honest especially obviously washington gives them a better chance to sneak into the playoffs. It's clear that all these bottom eastern conference teams that are always are shit are like okay. Let's actually try winning this year Atlanta washington charlotte. They're all doing it. mcconnell wants growth houston. Because they're kinda getting shit. But i kind like it because it's kind of the unknown like they don't really know whether getting back to john wall. We don't really know what john wall is going to be And who knows he could theoretically be a better fit x. to harden He might not be. He probably isn't is probably just as bad as a fit. But it's the unknown. Which kinda. I'm kinda in for their data traffic. It's a little bit of unknown he android wall and how what he currently is because if he's even ninety five ninety percent of what he was i think this is a big win for them And i think it can be a big win for both sides to be honest. Russell westbrook is russell westbrook. But john wall could be anything he could russell westbrook. I had to get the family guy joke. Sorry now that was good. I appreciated that But it kind of is hard to judge houston trades in a vacuum nowadays right. It does seem like they're kind of selling everything you know. They're kind of liquidating Other than james harden and the signing of christian. Would i mean you think about how You think about how you know. They just traded covington yet. They still keep making these moves. Suggest they're winning. Now is just kind of confusing. But you know. I don't wanna be too talking. Heady but what do you think this means for james harden. Yeah that's a good question. I mean i. I still i will go with this. The grave if they.

"The list guys are being taken care of and cater to and that sort of what you expect. And that's what you have come to expect in houston for years. And that's just not the case right now. His relationship with organization is changing and so a christian would comes out. He's an mvp. Maybe you can talk me into it. But i don't see that happening of john wall comes out and blows the doors off everyone and makes it all nba team. Then you know. Maybe he's happy. I don't see that happening either. And i think if i was houston i would really strongly consider. I've said this before. But i would strongly consider trading james harden before the start of the season and just go forward with the rebuild I get that. That's not. What their messaging is right now. But i would still you know really think hard about it and remember houston told us they were willing to get uncomfortable right well. They weren't that willing because they only got a first round. Pick to take on. John wall's contracts so i think there was a level of desperation from their side to get rid of westbrook in the short term and i do think That does not bode well. Kind of i guess for their Their big picture. Here i think again you make really good points. I wanna say like if the net start out this season like firing on all cylinders with the best defense in the nba and kyrie katie. Or clicking and care averted. Spencer dinwiddie all make sense in their roles. Like the. there's no. There's no place for her to go like the options are like. They're just not there so he has to say the irony here is that he wanted to play this style that made him a super duper offensive force unprecedented in a lot of ways just how he played. His style is his usage. The setbacks all of it that made him not ideal to play with other superstars and a lot of ways and so maybe some of the hesitation on a team like brooklyn's part of breaking up what they have before they get to see what it is is taking on harden and having it fit in with korean k. d. and not having a lot of depth because like so i just think that heart has kind of made his own bed in a lotta ways and now he has to sleep in it. And so what that means is you have to elevate guys like christian would who are super talented. Who have you know. He averaged twenty two and ten over fifteen game stretch. I think that that was something shot. Forty percent from the three point line. He's like six ten with seven three. Wingspan that's something to work with. So if heartedness this great player. And i think he is a great player like great players. Elevate those around you and like let's it. He made his own bed one hundred percent right. Look this guy had a giant king-size top of the line waterbed posture pedic all of it. And now he's sleeping on a cardboard two by four man like this is a mess. What was he doing now. he's sleeping in it all right..

"What makes this so different is that they're in multiple markets you know but Ted owns three teams in the same market and so you know it's the same audience and the same demographics. If you believe that you know kind of content on the digital side is going that avocado carts. There's there's been this whole debate in kind of gets back to what I was talking about the regional sports networks. There's been questions about whether or not. We're seeing subscribers decline on the on the on the linear bundle side. Right like we're down from you know I. Don't Know Lake think it's like eighty million cable subs now is the number and so at and let's say like drops down to fifty million Well, then people need to make up the other thirty million on the digital side Some of those will be made up in digital bundles. Kind of be like a redoing of digital asset, some digital side, but I, think there's some people who think that there's GonNa be Allah heart offering to If if all you want is ESPN net. Maybe you pay forty dollars to just have ESPN as opposed to paying fifty dollars for one hundred channels, ninety nine of which you don't watch I think that makes a lot of sense and I. think that as long as you don't. As long as you don't blow up the bundle the value in the bundle, you can do that so what they're talking about on a regional sports network basis. Is is interesting because if you think that were moving towards the direction where? Content is going to be sold on an alicarte basis on the digital side. Being one market has a lot of overlap. That's not necessarily good for volume. If you buy multiple markets, you're now able to tap into twice as many subscribers or whatever the percentage is a significant number of subscribers. Which is which is you know? Obviously what would help you sell a hell lot more? Individual cart digital subs, so just A. I'm not sure if the trend is going to be across market, but I think just generally speaking there is there is interest in you know. It's not particularly uncommon in the US. To See team owners, old properties across multiple. Leagues. There is just a finish that off though there is a fantastic quote in that in that piece of. I think I'm engineer on twitter's Chris. Bevilacqua. HIS IS A. The belief that sports remain a must carry on the cable bundle, and the bundle will re bundle itself on the digital side. That is just tremendous bundling A lot of bundling going on, but I think that you know we're seeing that. The. The Bundle continues to hold value I mean. You See. It's just impossible for anybody or not impossible, but it doesn't make economic sense for everybody to have you know peacock in HBO now and Hulu, and all these other services you would need to cobble together.

"Of sports, business space, I'll never forget I went into Major League Baseball's offices one time, and and I was having a meeting, and there was a stack of equity research for some talking about fifteen companies more maybe and. I said to the guy I said you know. What are you guys doing with all those equity research reports, and basically it's recognizance They're looking for ideas. They're looking for trends with their competitors are doing. They're looking to see where the industry is moving and so yeah, they're not buying public equities, but they are at very closely following the market, and and following companies you know that impact, their businesses, and so you know for where I was in technology media and telecom. You know obviously media. A meteorites are a large portion of the of the business, and so now in following those companies is important for for teams in Leagues So, let's let's jump off there and I.

I knew Scott was trying to build what ended up becoming sport ago at least two years ago. And the idea basically was that. There's a lot of people serving kind of in the middle of the sports business ecosystem. If you will the middle and low end and low end, I consider you know people that are in school and looking to break into the industry The fat middle is kind of you know all of your sales and marketing professionals and. People kind of doing the day to day work, but not necessarily making the decisions. And then you have that really high end audience team owners and network heads and agency heads, and the people that are really the movers and shakers, and there's just not a lot of of of outlets that are speaking to that audience in providing value for the audience I always use the example of like like the conference business, which has become pretty robust in the sports business space..

"Too like look at companies like Disney where they're surviving solely on story. I mean they're willing to put everything on the story. And there's no brand without it so it becomes kind of a different thing at that point but yet master storytellers the only to apply for that kind of stuff because the stakes are as high as they can get absolutely so if you think about your career your personal personal you know you talk about Disney. That's obviously getaway thing Where where can you go back to in your life and find a life changing in story that you can look back okay? That's the kind of story that I WANNA help. Change People's lives with. Yeah that's I think you know a big story that you hear a lot of entrepreneurs talk about. It's all sort of like what Seth Godin and talks about the dip of you kind of you can't have any kind of huge breakthrough without taking tremendous risks. And so that's when we started out It wasn't that received. Start a podcast on the side but when we we reached that point of like okay. We're going to drop everything else. We're doing and throw everything on this taking that jump in that leap is you know. There's just so much emotion that goes out your and the funny thing is you feel like you're giving up all kinds of security and you're doing something incredibly risky but the reality is it's it's in fact. Probably less is risky than what you're doing because any job you're in like unfortunately nowadays at any point you can get laid off the senior management team decides that we're not GonNa hit our bonus unless we trim in payroll by this much. Then you're going to get us. You really have no security in most places but yet to to take the leap and say okay. I'm GonNa throw aside the normal business world and just try and create something on our own Yet the story of how you start your own entrepreneurial voyage is the most important thing that'll it'll happen to you professionally. That's for sure and it and for some people they just start that way because they have no alternative and for others. It's they spend time in the regular working world to understand how everything works before they finally come to the realization located. There's nothing less would be to learn here. It's pretty much if I don't take this risk myself. I'm just going to be building somebody else's dreams for the rest of my life No place you WanNa be right and do you look at those other entrepreneurial entrepreneurial stories and take inspiration from those. When when it's hard hard you know to be honest? I don't it's kind of funny in that because I did the reverse path. You know the people who just kind of become entrepreneurs they definitely like latch onto somebody. That's ten years ahead of him who's successful but as somebody who's been through the ringer at a company that was entrepreneurial back you realize there's just so much luck and it's it's not just all skill like you can't it doesn't matter you can take any entrepreneur. You can run them through the same thing five times and they might hit on one or two and maybe there's some skill you know there's somebody who might hit three to five but you can't just there's no recipe you know you have to be in the right place at the right time and the market has to be coming along and a lot of people always miss the fact of all the engineers that come onto early. That's such a thing thing. There's so many companies that you'll see this company's hugely successful there's going to be ten people who like. Oh my God yeah. We had a working version of that for years ago and it just didn't get off the ground because the rest of the world wasn't ready for whatever reason So Yeah I you know it is kind of fun to hear about how an entrepreneur was about to miss payroll. They managed to talk that one last guy into you know throwing in fifty grand so they could survive another week and then it finally took off and run. Those are kind of fun stories but yeah you can't just Kinda like okay. The same thing's going to happen to me. It's pretty much all to you. Just have to wake up every day and continue to grind it out and not give up. You know. That's the biggest thing is you just have to survive and not give up and you will get there eventually but it's a question of how much you willing to give to get there right now on that journey where you're you're not giving up and obviously this is a little bit new right now as you increase are doing this but have you had moments already were you look at milestones and go. Yeah we're on the right path. We are making it in this world and so it's funny too because you know I mean I I talked about this is like my entrepreneurial journey but I'd done six other startups prior to that and it's just that I wasn't the guy it was like you know it started off you pretty much have like the Founding Entrepreneurial Entrepreneur you have the team below them and then you have the staff and so you know I had a chance. Let's let's see like two thousand to two thousand five. I was the guy at the bottom of the rung and that one it was just a matter of surviving long enough leg. It took them about eight years and they finally broke through and I was even gone before them. Like I had gotten axed in the second round of stuff And then the next one that I was at I was just one rung below the the partners and that one over five years like we hit it. We went from when I came on. It was like two hundred K.. A year they were bringing in and it got acquired when it got over twenty million and so And then I've had to after that crashed and burned. You know I had one that flamed out and the other thing that happens a lot with these is this they just become these. Ambi- companies that stumble on forever. Like you just. You're kind of short of making enough money to stay alive but you can't crack through and it does it takes a lot of You have to be bold to be like okay. Let's just put a fork in this and it's done and move on to something else. It is very hard to make that decision because the more time you put in you feel you have vested interest in it but it's a certain point you have to ask okay as this ever GonNa Light Up. And unless management is bold enough to to make more bold changes and completely changed direction. It won't happen so that it Kinda. It's the point of Wendy. Want to how much you line the shake up to to take another shot so all that setup for the amazing thing with this round is that. I've been through the ringer so many times. We have a lot of key points that we watch and we're like yeah we. I know where we're doing. Fine and the thing that's really helped. It's been so incredible with it. Is that both. Christopher Penn social audience that he's built up from speaking and all this stuff he's done and the marketing over coffee audience like those are directly aligned with what we're doing so it's Kinda like we showed up at the from day one with like fifteen years worth of marketing behind us. You know I mean we're we are young company and there's a lot of stuff we are trying to figure out as we go but you know when we drop like we dropped the social twenty twenty Predictions Sion's report about two weeks ago and I have like a stack of a thousand leads is to dig through so you know to be at a company for one month and having a thousand lights that you have to turn through like that never happens. That's ridiculous but on the flip side of it is like I don't know at any point we're kind of expecting the economy did go up in flames and who knows who's going to be able to survive at that so it's still definitely there's plenty of sleepless nights and stress but at least we you know are no that things are moving in the right direction. I mean a a month on month old companies overnight success despite the twelve years before handwriting so overnight success that only took twelve years to to get their job as a as a podcast or a speaker a writer Someone who who works with clients. What is your you have so many choices is to tell a story this way? What's your favorite way to tell a story? Yeah it's funny that the great question because it made me think in that my favorite way. Hey is to talk and to tell stories because there's no match for when the audiences right there and you get that instant feedback and you kind of know what's working and how it's playing often if they're actually living or not and if you're lucky to you know afterwards you actually get to talk to people and you get real time feedback which we don't get so much stuff but my strength is writing like that's what I do best because when you have the time to carve things and and get the written down That's where you know. Most people have asked for my help on stuff. I've been able to put stuff out there so I am a writer first and foremost but yeah I do. If if it's favorite. It's it's telling the story by voice. There's there's nothing like having that immediate feedback and seeing them. Lean in two dozen station. You Know Yeah Yeah. You've got them interested in and yet if they can you just walk away immediately with something that they can put to us that they were entertained with you. You can't beat that grace. I've had so much fun chatting with you and learning already I feel like we could just sit in and have coffee and marketing so that's good but but I'll I wanna I wanna get to my my last question here in a minute but I wanNA know another thing real quick before we get there And we'll also give everybody opportunity to come to you is sounds like your passion really is reaching people helping people helping people grow maybe As is unless lead that question I wanted to ask what is your passion and what drove you to do this company.
