"I was talking about how national reviews at the Kyle rittenhouse story wrong. They also got Nick Sandman wrong. Oh yeah. For their top editors, we're sniping at and denouncing Nicklaus salmon within minutes based on a few garbled minutes of CNN footage, which we're as propaganda. I again was one of the few people speaking out within minutes of in defending Nick salmon's right to constitutional free speech at a political rally, which is what the march for life was. Turns out he didn't even speak. He didn't even do anything. He just stood there. Standing while white, while pro life. But David French again was attacking Kyle rittenhouse as basically irresponsible and reckless, you know, young man with a gun had no place being there. And it struck me. David French was fine with 17 year old Americans handling rifles as long as they were in Iraq. As long as they were protecting a foreign country in a misguided war based on lies and propaganda that George W. Bush sold us. David French was all up for that. In fact, even when served as a military attorney in the green zone of Baghdad, which, of course, was safer for an American than living in Baltimore or any other blue city. But David French got his veterans credentials for political purposes by serving as an attorney in the safe little enclave of the green zone. But actual soldiers were taking actual risk with their lives in that war for no reason. Son of mosaic had nothing to do with 9 11. There were no weapons of mass distraction. Antifa has done far more to harm America than Saddam Hussein ever

"Progressive. They start screaming death threats at Kyle and his friends. Somebody loans Kyle a rifle, Kyle is experience has spent a lot of time at the gun range is apparently an excellent shot and a very responsible gun user. So he takes the gun and then they start chasing him. One of them shouts at him. One of them tries to kill him with a skateboard. They're screaming get him kill him. And he shoots three people at the last possible moment and absolute self defense. Yeah. And this American hero David French and some of the people in national review smeared at for months. And now he's vindicated and what do we see? A crazy Black Lives Matter supporter who was let out of jail for running a woman down who and for failing to register as a sex offender. Pedophile seems to be the pedophile and sex offender seems to be the common thread connecting Black Lives Matter and antifa. He's led out of jail with a slap on the wrist by a George Soros prosecutor. And what does he do he attacks a Christmas parade full of white people in orchestra, lakeisha. Walker Shaw. Walker saw Wisconsin. This is a hate crime. This is a hate crime as sure as when that psychotic and South Carolina has shot up for black church. They won't be treated as a hate crime. It won't be treated as that. He'll probably get very good lawyers and he'll who knows who knows. Maybe he'll get a slap on the wrist. One thing's for sure, he won't be slapped with civil rights charges. If he gets, if he somehow gets off on this multiple homicide, the Biden administration won't be looking at civil rights charges. The way they are at Kyle for Kyle rittenhouse. Jerry Nadler, the elephantine, congressman from New York, who is calling for civil rights charges, federal charges to be filed against rittenhouse. In which case he'd be denied bail like the January 6th defendants who took selfies at the capitol or are in solitary confinement for months. The best shark attorneys of the federal government will be circling around him. So my advice and my column is streamed on art was entitled. Congratulations Kyle rittenhouse. Now flee to Brazil while you can. Yeah. Brazil actually protects people who seek political asylum. It does not extradite people for political crimes. And these are political crimes, the crime is self defense while white. Yeah. Yeah, I don't know if you saw the interview by Tucker Carlson with DDR, but I haven't had a chance to watch. He is an amazing young man. He's an amazing young man. It's like it blows your mind that this guy was 17. There are where were the adults in the room, right? Where were the police behind barricades, like, you know? Yes. Like the mayor. The mayor, the governor, the whole 9 yards there. Donald Trump said, look, I will protect your city and they said, no, no, no, no, we got it. We'll just let things burn because that's what we do here. Well, you know what it is. It's called a narco tyranny. The left let's leftist rioters run the take over the streets. And if decent people try to protect themselves, they prosecute them. It's exactly what the Nazis did in Germany. Nazi thugs would fight in the streets against socialists, Catholics communists. The local police and mayors who sympathize with the Nazis would let the Nazis offer the slap on their wrist and prosecute the people who defended themselves. That's how the Nazis took power in Germany. And it's how the left is trying to take power in America. Right. And then you've got the yellow stream media telling lives lies left and right around here. So yeah, people that don't go, they'll say like, oh, that's the alternative news. You know, the news that's the real nose is alternative and the NBC's and the CNNs and all that, but that's where the real news is. Yeah, I think so. You know who got the rittenhouse story right? Yeah, revolver news, the stream and the nationalist news. Like really small, not famous outlets. We got it right. They all bought the lies. Yeah. We're gonna be right back with Johns murak from stream dot org. Go there right now and see several of his articles. He writes I believe 5 a week, sorry 5 a day seems like that. 5 a week. We're going to be right back. I'm all been saying our sitting in for Eric metaxas. See the girls in California. But hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Taubman have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about $1 a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or the three week quick start from 1995, let's see if we can get you at a pain too, but relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com.

"Her stories or challenges You know just trying to succeed in life. so i've faced a lot of those same challenges. And i can relate to the things that she's done i feel like she's she's a. She was able to overcome a lot. And i feel like. I will be able to do that as well. Will you mentioned this already. But i'm going to ask it again. So i'm gonna give you a chance to either elaborate on it or or say something else so if you could go back to the beginning what would you do differently or where would you consider taking a different approach. Yeah doing that web app together with those. So i would took that approach because i feel like we would save some more time and money by doing that So as we build in our out where we have to still keep in mind the features and how they're going to be in the web at. I'm sorry in the mobile app as well. If if i wanted just had this structure already there and then you know built tasks when it when we have task for the web app and also have a mobile task we could be you know having releases for both items at the same time that that is. That is the thing that i would have done. No going back. I wish i would have done that out sooner. Last question. lakisha you're getting on a plane and you're sitting next to a young entrepreneur. Who's built the next big thing. They're jazzed about it. They can't wait to show it off to the world can't which showed off to you right there on the plane. What advice do you give that person. Having gone down this road a bit. Well i would tell them to definitely get a mentor and ask for advice. You know before like you know making any types of moves or anything. Just make sure you have somebody. That's been down that road before and that could give you like sound advice. So that she could save money and time also Maybe like do market research do a lot of market research before you get into your product development. Make sure this is something that you know. Customers want so that you can avoid a pivot you know because a pivot is costly. Costly with time and money and then Build a good network utilize your network too so that network is very important when you're doing something like this very cool. That's excellent lakisha. Thank you.

Let's talk about scale ability a little bit. So did you build this to scale efficiently from day one or are you fighting this as you grow. I feel like the stack that i chose. It's very scalable. And i feel like we're we're scaling pretty well of muses building it on top of aws allows it to scale building building at service. So i mean it really doesn't it. We don't have to worry about You know space and like how much were using so we pay us we go. So it's it's pretty scalable in your in your structure. Maybe even in your models of your data structures have you built in scalable approaches or or algorithms or is is that going to be re factoring exercise later we did build build our structure pretty scalable to like the automation for you. Know the trade and all of that stuff that is very skillful so the way that we we structured algorithms and all of those. Things is very very scalable for what we need to do. Bless you step out on the balcony and you look across all that you've built. What are you most proud of. I'm most proud of the people that we chose to take this journey with us and they stick with us throughout the rough times and in the fight and they were able to follow through. I had the opportunity to work with some amazing individuals and had the opportunity to make an impact of some of their lives and they have mine. So it's really the journey itself the working with the people to build build this and it's very exciting. Let's flip the script a little bit. Tell me about a mistake. You made and how you and your team responded to. It made several mistakes so some mistakes in defining task and how to implement them. Usually if a mistake is something like that is made. It's brought to my attention that you know that the mistake was made and then might my team usually adapts and you know makes allows me to make the correction or makes a correction on their own for me so we pretty much help each other. What does the future look like for your product and for your team we plan to secure a lead investor so that we can continue to build grow and scale the album per team and the product and We have many things planned into the future and we look forward to the cover. One of the top financial accompanies features that Really excited about So and and this is one that this is going to answer one of the other questions that i wish i would have done But like you know building out the mobile app. I wish i would have built the mobile mobile app simultaneously with the web app. That's one thing i feel like. I should have made that decision instead of waiting to build though the web out first and then The mobile app second also us becoming our own broker That's another thing that we really want to do So we're working on the regulations for that. You know all of that stuff. Lakisha who influences the way that you work name. Ceo cto architect. Really any person name a person that you look up to and why well to be honest. I the the person that i'm most look up to you. Know may not be a cto c o or whatever. But i really admire her as a person. And i feel like she's a savvy business woman and no she's just done so much in her life and it's michelle obama. That's why i look up to. I'll political things aside. That's who i look up to.

"The kisha turner is a strong woman. She has her hands full as a single mom of a sixteen year. Old girl in an eight year old boy. She's a breast cancer survivor and a lover of classical music previously playing instruments in her high school days. She chose a tech path at a very early age. Heavily influenced by her grade school computer science teacher ultimately leading to her decision to pursue a career in technology. When she's not building technology she likes to take trips with their kids and each weekend. She tries to plan something fun. Exciting for them to do as a family a little bit ago. Lakisha was approached by her founder ronnie green about utilizing her tech expertise to build out his vision for automated algorithm ick trading and portfolio management. This is the creation story of alco. Perr albuquerque automates. The trading process batching a traders investment portfolio with the algorithm bought at best fits their risk level in their goals so we asked him a series of questions to determine what the risk level is and we help the match algorithm to place on their brokerage account of our mission is to break exclusivity in finance and help. Average people grow their wealth. Well i was approached by my my co-founder lung the founder ronnie green. He found me on link at an engineer for a very long time so he pretty much needed somebody to helping implement the product. We talked about very extensively about what he wanted to do from there. I him suggestions on what we needed to do to get started. We started with hiring a couple of ex designers. We explained the product. They gave us like some basic design and get started. Wait so from there. I chose the stack. That we're we're gonna use the hosting and all the technology that's going to go behind that. So that's we got started. Initially it was just me and then we brought in a team. Tell me about the mvp so that you chose your technologies. You built that first product. Tell me about that. Mvp what sort of tools you use to bring it to life. How long it took you things like that. Initially we had a different. Mvp so our initial mvp took a few months to build. We went to a early accelerated program where we got more information about our product and our customer and we discovered that the that we had was not really what our customer needed customer wanted so we had to pivot but Pivot took a while to get the new. Mvp out because We had already built this other. Mvp so like pivoting was a little challenging. We also changed our name and rebranded on top of that that affects everything so it took to pivot. I i would say about like seven months to do the pivot And actually be able to live seven k. And my read finally did that so the tools that we used for building. The product was aws. We built it on top of aws. I chose the least expensive route which and chose to go with the service methodologies stack. So we did that. Made all of our api's and we designed the front end separately. That's what we did get better product off the ground when you're doing any mvp you've gotta make certain decisions and trade-offs on you know you're talking about some of them you know. What do we build. Win what technologies do we use will accept this technical debt here You you mentioned cost right. You're going to measure those costs. So tell me about some of those decisions and trade offs. You had to make when you building your mvp and your early prototype and how you cope with those decisions. When we decided to do the pay a lot of things changed. We had a lot of components that were no longer valid. Missile and then we also had to re factor a lot of components instead of rebuilding the entire chose to re factor are components and they use a lot of components that we already had and we enhanced and added a features With with those so just to kind of reduce the amount of time that it would take for building whole. Mvp with that it. We had to do a lot of things like changed our host initially hosting with. Aws within we're mostly with somebody else so now we're pointing our aws s. three buckets to another a server. So initially that was not the case so we had to maybe contact. Aws figure out how to do that with with the host that we had so that was a little bit challenging yourself. And yes so. I think the major trade off was was the pivot that that was really big now i. I'm glad that we if we were gonna pay that we pivoted early versus later on. You know okay so then that point you did the you know you did the pivot right you got. The product built How did you progress it from there. And how are you going about maturing the product and building your roadmap to decide okay. This is the next most important thing to build. Well we're basing that on customer feedback. What our customers want. And that's that's how we're determining the most important feature to build mix so our customers are wanting the ability to have additional brokers a right now.

But i was attacked beforehand before i actually went to graduate school so that actually helped checking and make a solution that actually helps you become very very astute in the lab and so regular graduate students. That didn't have that experience. Didn't understand why would sit at my desk in. I'd write it out in Planet out and. I take my time. And i didn't have to do trillions of experiments academic like a good three and i have so much data to till nine through so i think i covered everything. It guys I have to say. I had a very different experience Even though i was at the end of my graduate school tenure And i have a very different viewpoint now. than i did at the time when i was Found out i was expecting my daughter. there was a significantly bad situation that i had witnessed In my lab. We're we had a senior technician. Who came in. She had been with us very long but had special needs children. And all that was you know sorted disgust and again not that. It's actually even legal to consider these things when hiring you all at some point the needs of the children even though this lady was tag teaming destroy turn it's my turn with her husband The needs of the children ended up being like not compatible with the job in the lady was asked to resign So having watched that and having watched some of my other classmates decide to start families which was completely normal.

But because i just you know put my foot down and said no. This is not acceptable. We need to get this paper out now in. You need to let me go. Get this job on.
