A highlight from Four Questions to Save Your Marriage
"Welcome to the Growing in Love for Life podcast, where it's all about saving and strengthening your marriage and creating the relationship you really deserve and want to have. And now from growinginloveforlife .com, relationship and marriage coach and bestselling author, your host, Liam Naden. This is episode 27 of the Growing in Love for Life podcast. And hi everyone, it's Liam Naden back again with a new episode of our Growing in Love for Life podcast. It's great to be here and I've got some information today that I'm really excited to tell you about. And I've called this episode four questions to save your marriage. Now it's hard to believe we're actually onto episode 27 of these podcasts. And I hope you've been listening to some of the previous ones. I know a lot of people have listened to to all of the podcasts, which is great. And I hope I've been able to give you some ideas and strategies and techniques and things that you can actually apply to your own marriage situation, and which hopefully will make a to save your marriage, which is obviously what this is all about. But you know, it struck me the other day, and this is really one of the reasons I came up with the topic for these four questions that are going to help you save your marriage. And it struck me here we are in our 27th episode. And with 27 episodes, you've got in your hands a huge resource. You know, we've, we've covered an awful lot of ground in these podcasts, we've covered everything from how to forgive your spouse for things that they've done wrong or ways they've hurt you, how to create better communication in your, in your marriage, the sorts of things you should do to save your marriage, other things you shouldn't do. We've created an enormous, there's a big resource here now of information that you can use. And of course, I've also got two very powerful relationship programs. One is my seven -day program, Stop Your Divorce, How to Save Your Marriage When Your Spouse Doesn't Want To. And that's a very powerful step -by -step program when your relationship is in a crisis and your spouse wants to leave, or maybe they already have, and you want to stop your divorce. So I really hope you'll check that program out if you're in that situation. Or I've also got my 30 -day program, my Save Your Marriage Relationship Transformation program. And this is for people who have really lost their way in their marriage, and maybe their spouse wants to leave as well, but this goes into a lot more depth in how to really rebuild the intimacy, the communication, the passion in your marriage, and get things right back on track. So I hope you'll check out those two programs, because they really are the best of my information given to you in a step -by -step plan that's proven to work, it's helped a lot of couples to save their marriage. So check those out. But in these podcasts, and in my books as well, if you've read any of those, and just a word about my Kindle books, I'm really proud of them, I've created a series called the Growing in Love for Life series. And many of them have gone on to become bestsellers on Amazon Kindle. But in all of those things, I've really tried to do two things. The first thing is to give you, as I said earlier, practical things that you can do immediately that are going to create a noticeable difference straight away to your marriage situation and improvement. But the other thing is, I'm also trying to give you some ideas to get you thinking in a different way. And actually, I think that's the more important. Because what happens when you get new ideas and new thoughts, and when you start thinking in a different way, you create new behaviors, and that leads to different results. And Einstein has a quote, we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. And I think that's so true. And that's why we've got to change our thoughts, change the way we think if we want to get a different result. And I think, just to digress a little bit, but what we're seeing today is a big shift in the way people are being helped to deal with their problems in their life. And that comes down to relationships and marriage coaching as well. And I think this is going to be a big, a much greater shift in the future, but it's effective, and it's very effective because what it actually does is it's a shift away from just simply giving people the answers to actually giving people the right questions, and helping them to come up with the answers that are right for them. This isn't to say that you don't need to know the right things to do. You do need the answers, but you also need to know how to ask the right questions. And that's what we're going to do in this podcast as well, is help you create some more of the right questions and come up with better answers and better solutions. All right, so that brings me to today's topic, which is really about asking the right questions. And I've got four questions for you, and they are four questions that really have the potential and power to help you save your marriage. And just a quick word about these questions. Obviously, as I've said in so many of my podcasts, when I ask you a question, the key is that it's vital that you answer these questions honestly. I mean, at the end of the day, they're only for your benefit anyway. But if you do commit to answering them honestly, and particularly the four questions I'm going to cover today, you may well find all sorts of feelings come up for you. And they might be things that are not very pleasant. You might start to feel guilty, or regret, or anger, or sadness. And above all, you might even feel some anxiety and even some fear. Now, if that happens, you can actually be really pleased and take heart because it not only means you're on the right track, but it also means that you're going to be much closer to resolving your marriage situation than otherwise, because you're going to come up with some powerful answers and you're going to experience that shift in your thinking that I was talking about earlier. And that's really what's going to make the difference. So because of that, you also might want to make a few notes of, as we go along with these questions, write down your answers, and you might even want to pause the audio as well. Give yourself some time, it's really important that you give yourself some time to answer these questions. All right, well, I hope I have, now that I've mentioned that sort of warning, if you like, I hope I haven't scared you off. No, really, this is a very exciting process, and I think you'll be very glad you went through and answered these four questions. So let's get onto those questions now. And they're actually all why questions, they're all questions that start with why. And I think why questions are really the most powerful types of questions that we can ask, because they really deal with the underlying reasons behind things. And this is when you get to the heart of things, and you get to really understand what's going on in a situation, and it's really only by understanding what's going on in a situation and addressing things honestly, that you can start to do some of the things that are really going to work that are going to make the real difference. All right, so let's get onto the first question. And just as way of introducing this question, I just want to fill you in on a little bit of my own personal story. Now, you might have heard a bit about me or read a little bit about me and how I came to be working in this whole relationship coaching area, and how I managed to be perfectly honest to get such very effective results, which is great. And it really comes back to what happened to me. And it wasn't so long ago, I was going through my second divorce. Yes, I was not good at marriage, perfect candidate to be teaching it. But anyway, things are really messy. I'd lost everything. And I mean everything. I was living on my mother's sofa at the time, sleeping in her living room. I'd lost everything I had, my friends, my businesses, my income, all my possessions. Not only that, I was in court with both of my ex -wives at the same time. They were both having me in court and trying to attack me, as it were. So when all this was going on, and I'm sure you'd agree, I wasn't exactly feeling good, but I asked myself a very good question. And that's the first of the four questions that I want you to ask for yourself today. And that is, why am I in this situation? So really think about that for yourself. Why are you in the situation you're in with your marriage? If your spouse wants to leave, why do they want to leave? Why has the intimacy gone from your marriage? Why are you having these problems? Why are you in this situation? Now if you're really honest with yourself, and I hope you are, you realize that a lot of it, a lot of your current situation, if not all of it, has to do with decisions that you have made and things that actually are within your control. So they're things that you've done or things that you've not done. Things that maybe you've ignored when you shouldn't have. You know, maybe you've seen some warning signs and you've just chosen to ignore them. Maybe there are some things that you should have said, but you didn't say them. You just kept them inside. But whatever the reasons, it's about realizing that you actually do have some responsibility for the situation you're in. And, you know, maybe if your husband or wife is having an affair or they want to leave you, it's not just about what they've done or are doing. You know, really ask yourself that question, why am I in the situation that I'm in? And when you ask that question and you really accept that you have some responsibility for where you are, that's a wonderful place to be because it puts you in a position of power. So instead of feeling helpless and powerless, now you know you can do something about it. So that's the very first question to ask yourself. Why am I in this situation? Really powerful. Think about that one. Right. The second question. And again, this, I think, is a very profound question to ask yourself. Why do I want to save my marriage? That's a big question. Why do I want to save my marriage? And this is often the very first question I ask people when they come to me and and ask for help. I say, why do you why do you want to save your marriage? And this means you really need to search very deeply into yourself to uncover the real reasons for why you want to save your marriage. In fact, I've covered this whole thing in a previous podcast. But don't just say, well, it's because I love them and I want to be with them. You know, it's the first reaction. But no, that's not. I don't believe the real reason is that I mean, you can still love your husband and your wife and not be married to them. And if they're making you if you say, well, I want to be with them. But well, if they're making you miserable, then why would you want to be with them anyway? Right now, I'm not saying here that you should leave your marriage, but I'm saying you've got to answer this question. Why do I really want to save my marriage? Now, one way to help come up with the real answers to this is to ask yourself another question, which is, what am I afraid will happen if my marriage ends? You know, what am I afraid of? What am I afraid will happen if my marriage ends? And very often people want to save their marriage because they're afraid of what they think is going to happen if they're not married. They're afraid of things like how they're going to make a living or maintain their lifestyle. They're afraid of the potential impact on their children, or whether they're going to be even more unhappy than they are now. And all of these fears, you know, what are they afraid of that will happen if their marriage ends? All of these fears really come down to a fear of the unknown, a fear of the future, not knowing what's going to happen. And the problem with that is it keeps people stuck. And one of the things we call this place is a comfort zone. And a comfort zone doesn't need to be comfortable. It can be absolutely horrible, but it will be comfortable because at least you know what it looks and feels like. So a lot of people want to save their marriage because they think, well, at least I know what it's miserable, but at least I know where I am. I'm not having to step out into the wide world of total the unknown. So ask yourself that question. You need to come up with the real reasons why you want to save your marriage. And then you need to look at them and you need to say, are these really the right reasons to stay married? And really, if I do stay married, am I going am I going to be able to be happy? Now, hopefully, of course, the answer is yes. But you need to be really honest about it. And unless you are, and I'm sure you can see by now that unless you are really honest with these questions, you're really not going to be able to save your marriage anyway. All right. So that's question number two. Question number three. Why am I allowing my current situation to continue? In other words, why am I putting up with this? Why am I putting up with the current situation and allowing myself and probably my spouse and my children to remain unhappy? Now, if you've answered the previous two questions honestly with yourself, if you've been honest with yourself and if you've given them a lot of thought, then you're probably already getting some ideas, some new ideas on things that you could be doing differently, things that you know are probably going to make a positive difference. In that case, you know, you really need to ask yourself, why am I allowing my current situation to continue? You know, why am I if I know some things I should be doing, but I'm not doing them, why is that? You know, why am I just allowing things to continue the way they are? Because the truth is, you are allowing it to. You know, you might think that it's out of your control. But remember, the previous two questions, by now you realize things are very much in your control and you and you have a responsibility. So if you're just allowing your current, if you're not changing anything, you simply are allowing your current situation to continue. And of course, when you think about the answers, what might come into your head? What's going to surface again when you really think about it? What are your fears, isn't it? Isn't it true that there are things that you fear that are stopping you from taking actions, from doing things that you know you should or even not doing things that you know you shouldn't, but you're not doing them? But just becoming aware of these things is going to make a big difference. So ask yourself that question, why am I allowing my current situation to continue? Even though I know there are some things that I could be doing differently that would make a difference. You know, Bob Proctor, the well -known speaker, he says, our problem is not knowing what to do. Our problem is not knowing why we're not doing it. That's very profound, isn't it? Really think about that. Our problem is not knowing what to do. Maybe you've already got some ideas on what to do, some new ideas, but our problem is not knowing why we're not doing it. And it really comes down to our fears. So think about the fears behind your answers when you answer that question. Why am I just allowing my current situation to continue and realize that you are? All right, well, the fourth and last question, and this is a biggie. And this question is, why am I not doing everything I can to save my marriage? Now, your first reaction when you hear that question might be, but I am doing everything I can. I'm working really hard. I'm I'm, you know, reading everything I can. I'm doing all these things. I'm trying to make my my husband or wife feel really good. I'm putting myself out. I'm I'm spending all my time thinking about it. I'm I'm really trying to figure out what to do. I'm talking to other people. I'm doing everything I can. But the truth is, if you're really honest with yourself, you're not doing everything, are you? You know, there's a story about J. Abraham, the marketing guru, and people would say to him that they were doing everything they could to create a particular result. And he'd say, all right, well, don't tell me everything, but just tell me the first hundred things you're doing to get the result you want. And of course, people would sort of stop for a moment and they might start to, you know, say a few things. They normally get to about 10. And of course, that would be it. No, you're not doing everything you can to save your marriage, are you? So you need to ask yourself, why aren't you doing everything you can? I mean, there are so many things you could be doing that you're not doing. I mean, for a start, you could listen to every single episode of my podcast. As I said, there's 27 of them now. There's a huge resource that you could listen to all of those. That's one thing you could do. I've also got two very powerful coaching programs that have been proven to save marriages that are going to show you exactly what to do to save your marriage. You could do that. And I've also there's there's other information you can find elsewhere as well. You're not doing everything, are you? That's the truth. So why aren't you? And let's look at this for a moment, because, you know, and I'm being brutally honest here, but I am about being honest because I want you to get the result you're looking for. And you're only going to get it if you're honest with yourself and I'm honest with you. So so, you know, a lot of people contact me or some people contact me and they say, look, I'm really desperate to save my marriage. And I'd love I'll do anything I really will. And I'd love to do your program. But and then the excuse comes along. And often it might be, but I don't have the time, time to do it. Oh, really? OK, well, you know, try and find the time for divorce because it's going to take a lot of your time. All right. But you know what I mean? Or they say they can't afford it. You know, it's too expensive. Well, for a start, to be honest, those programs are not expensive. They also come with a guarantee. And there's one thing I can tell you with absolute certainty, and that's the most expensive thing you will ever do in your life is go through a divorce. I can guarantee you that. So it's going to cost you far more than you can imagine to get a divorce. And it's going to cost you many, many times the cost of the program to show you exactly how to avoid it. So you need to ask yourself that question. Why am I not doing everything I can to save my marriage? And when you really ask yourself that question, you're going to come up with some pretty interesting answers. And again, very likely what's going to come up are your fears. You know, perhaps you've thought of doing something, but you think, well, no, it's not going to work. Or you don't necessarily think it won't work, but you're not sure that it will work. So you think you're going to be wasting your money. Or you might think your spouse might be angry with you for having tried something and it being a failure. So it's that fear of failure with you, if you like. Or they might even criticize you for trying. And that's what some people say to me. Well, I can't do this program because if my spouse finds out they're going to be really angry. And I say, well, the alternative is you get divorced and it won't really matter, will it? So is that really a big issue? Or maybe some people also have a fear that it's going to make things worse. But again, how much worse does it have to get? Is it really going to matter if it gets a lot worse? There's nothing worse than divorce, is there? Now, the truth is, of course, you don't have to try everything to save your marriage. You only need to do what works. But you have to be prepared to try everything until you find the thing that works for you. And that might be after 10 things, trying 10 things, and then you find the thing that works. It might be after 100 things. But you have to be prepared to do anything, to keep going until you find what it is that gives you the result that you want. So ask yourself that question, that's the fourth question. Why am I not doing everything I can to save your marriage? Ask that question. Why am I not doing everything I can to save my marriage? Okay, well there are four very powerful questions and I really have found in working with people and through my programs and through coaching that they're questions that really have the potential to massively change your results in terms of saving your marriage. So please spend time thinking about them and really be honest with yourself as well. Because when you're honest with yourself, what happens is you come up with the right answers and that's all that matters is the right answers. And you'll start to see the things that you're afraid of that are stopping you from doing the right things. And that's really, really important. So they're four very powerful questions that are really worth spending some time on. Now I mentioned earlier about my two programs and I do just want to remind you that there's something that I feel very passionate about because I've seen the impact the ideas of my programs really do in helping people save their marriage. And one of the most fulfilling things in my life is seeing two people who have got a great relationship when it turns sour, not throwing it away. Realizing that just a few things that you do differently can bring you back together again, can bring back the magic that you used to have. And it really is a privilege to be able to show people just those little things that make a massive difference. So I really would encourage you, if you like the things that I'm saying to you in these podcasts and you feel that I can help you, have a look at my two programs, my Stop Your Divorce Program and my Save Your Marriage Relationship Transformation Program and all the information is available on my website, LiamNaden .com, as well as other information as well. So thanks very much for joining me again on this podcast episode. If you have any other questions or comments, feel free to email me at LiamNaden at gmail .com. Otherwise, I look forward to helping you soon and talking to you soon. Thanks again and bye for now.
Fresh update on "liam" discussed on News, Traffic and Weather
"414. Your It helps you with conversations with friends, families, and co -workers when it comes to issues that everybody seems to talk about. You'll have that much more knowledge. For example, Seattle City Council finally approves a drug possession law. We'll go depth into on that. One local school district tries to address violence in the classroom and we found a new study sheds light on how working at home reduces our carbon footprint. These are just some of the stories we're about to recap here as we get you caught up. Once again, I'm Mark Christopher. Welcome to Northwest News This Week, covering the week of September 23rd. And now, let's get to our first story. It wasn't easy, but the Seattle City Council late Tuesday passed new a drug law after months of debate. John Libertini. By a six to three vote, the council aligned with state law, making drug possession and public drug use a crime again. Council member Shama Sawant voted no. The real effect is to allow the political establishment to prosecute and destroy the lives of those who need medical treatment. But the Seattle law is heavy on diversion, moving drug offenders to drug treatment instead of local jails or prisons. Council member Lisa Herbold authored the legislation. Diversion in the city of Seattle is so important. Even a small period of time in jail can result in people losing jobs, housing. Mayor Bruce Harrell has already committed $27 million for new treatment centers, addiction and housing. homeless But council member Theresa Mosqueda wanted to on wait the mayor's budget amid concerns about a budget shortfall. We don't have the services to ensure that prearrest diversion is the priority versus arrest and prosecution. The mayor's budget is due out next week. john Lobertini, Northwest News Radio. It's unsettling enough when you hear of people taking drugs and ending up overdosing on fentanyl. But in this story, we're now hearing about victims being impacted while out on their daily walks. Yeah, just really, really scary to hear that that's happened. Liam Morales walks nearly every day his at Portland neighborhood by his side, his best friend. And now Liam watches his dog even closer after hearing three different dogs while out on walks in the last week have overdosed on fentanyl. Fentanyl is fast acting, and it can have really severe even fatal consequences for pets test paid at Doug of Louis Emergency Veterinary Hospital tells KGWTV. And it might be that they actually ate the product or they ate some bodily fluids from somebody who had ingested it previously. You know how dogs will pick up anything of interest while out on a walk. Dog Walker Alexa Harris. It only takes a second or two. You know, a dog sees something they might be interested in and just really quickly get it before you before you even realize the real crime here is they don't have to ingest it just come close enough to it. Remember canine officer Sully earlier this year. He was in a room containing get it. He was a fentanyl went back to his kennel and passed out. Courtney O 'Keeffe with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office. But that time he quickly opened his kennel and was kind of patting at his face trying to get him to wake up. He he realized needed to get Narcan. Yes, the same antidote that can save a human's life can also save your pet when they come into contact with fentanyl. The signs to look for? Some symptoms to look for change could be in their breathing. a They might have a lower respiratory rate. They might have difficulty breathing. They might have difficulty walking, less coordination than usual. They might even start having seizures. Just really, really scary to hear that that's happened three times and definitely gonna make sure I'm looking out now walking on the street. Liam will watch his dog even closer now while out on a walk. You are encouraged to do the same. If they pick anything up, then start exhibiting the symptoms. Test just talked about medical seek care. If you hadn't considered picking up some Narcan to carry with you in the event another human needs it, perhaps you'll consider carrying a dose now. Liam certainly will. It's dogs that are affected, but just the entire community is affected. And so it's just something to be careful of and see if we can get some legislation or something going to try and make our community more safe. Brian Calvert, Northwest News Radio. Have you noticed you can find and buy Narcan over the counter? The opioid reversal drug is simple to use and the can life save of a person suffering an overdose. But it could have happened much sooner if not for Narcan's maker Fusil, a story we found in the Washington Post. Here at Northwest News Radio's Frank Lindsey. Emergent BioSolutions is the company behind Narcan. What reason did that company get for making it more difficult to buy this life -saving drug? BioSolutions had been making this work for several years and back in 2018, even the FDA was basically begging them to go ahead and make this over the counter for that reason of just getting it out there, making it easier for people to buy. And the company said they were worried about insurance concerns and worried about folks being aware. But the biggest problem I perhaps was just the financial model didn't work out as well for them when it was over the counter versus prescription only. What did the FDA the FDA is sort of having its hands tied. They can't force the company to go over the counter with the drugs. So they tried making very it easy. They rolled out the red carpet and, you know, basically drew up a blueprint for any company to do it. And finally, last year, emergent solutions, when they're under pressure from some competitors who are also looking at doing this, finally went ahead and applied to go over the counter. Was it that competition that finally got them to change course, or were there other things at play It here? was a little bit of everything. The company says that they were planning to do this anyhow. The timing was finally right. has This company done quite well by selling Narcan and going over the counter would cut into what had been their business model. But finally, when it did happen, now there's more generic competition and hopefully folks will be able to see it out and easier to find. As you report the patent on the lock zone, which is what Narcan is essentially ran out about 30 years ago. How were they able to profit so much while others hadn't and can they still do that? It's a remarkable story. The drug has been invented in the 60s and hadn't expired in the 90s and so a merchant when they finally bought the company that made this Narcan product, there was some litigation about whether the patent still existed. They put it in a nasal spray bottle and whether that was enough to make it into a new product and a federal judge finally two years ago ruled that it was not, but that delay sort of kept generic competitors off the market.

"Hello, welcome to Leisure Cast. My name is Brian Farsgaard here with the one, the only Josh Olsowich. Hey, Josh, Brian, how are you? I'm doing great. How are you doing? Good. It's hoodie season back in my natural form. This is my favorite time of year. The crowd wants to know, not because it's tax filing season, but because it is not miserably hot anymore. That's true. It was 90 upper 90s here last week. It was nuts. Oh, that's hot. Yeah. Yeah, no, I love it because the humidity calms down. Yeah. Temperature calms down. People get back from their summer breaks and maybe they start trading. I don't really care about that part. Oh, you're in the deep south because you got that gross, gross heat plus humidity. Yeah. So I need this break. I need this break. I love this season. Football is back. I know you care about that a lot. Huge fly Eagles fly. That's what they tell me to say. They say They here. played quite well last night. I did. I watched a bit of it. They did play well. Yeah, football season, playoff baseball. I mean, fall is really the greatest time. The changing of the leaves eventually. We won't get that for a little while, but we have much to be thankful for. Thanksgiving. Speaking of thankful, that's not too late. We have much to be thankful for, Josh. Bitcoin does well on Thanksgiving, historically. Well, could have fooled me this month. Look, we might be grasping at straws here, but there's not much else to talk about. Not much is going on right now. Everybody's just kind of waiting for a bunch of things. Yeah. And we're just in limbo here. You know, the old trusty 200 week is one with the price. Ethan BTC. We're just basically the average of... We're below it, though. What if this is the historic high ever for the 200 week? What if it only curls down below it forever more? That would be pretty bad. It's certainly a sign of being sideways at best when you're hovering around all the moving averages of whatever sorts you want to analyze. There's really not a lot to say on Bitcoin. I think the market is so thin in both directions that we are one headline away from a 10 % day one way or the other. Something bad goes down with an exchange that rhymes with... Finance. Let me see if I can find a word, Josh. And, you know, that's the negative 10 % day potentially. But if we get that BlackRock ETF, maybe... We're gonna be saying that for like six months. It'll just be around the corner, guys. Just wait another few weeks. BlackRock's gonna come save us, guys. Not a place we want to be, you know? The same thing with halving. You don't want to be the central focus, even though that's how it's been historically. This is no different than 2020, 2016. It's no different. It's just, you know, same stuff, different day. It's got to be boring, even in the good times. Even when there is another cycle, historically there has been. There's still loads of time that's just boring where people get sucked out of the ecosystem, lack of paying attention, etc. Hey, Josh, I want to give a shout out. Thanks, RedScrutinizer, for bringing it up early in the show. We usually mention it towards the end that Josh does videos. But Josh does videos, and you should check them out at Carpe Noctem on YouTube. Carpe Noctem. I don't know how to spell it, so I'm saying it. Yeah, that'll help. People have no clue. It's N -O -C -T -O -M? There you go. You know what I randomly looked today at our... This has turned into a podcast of a podcast, but I looked at our reviews on some podcast stream, and it was over four and a half stars. I was like, oh shit, we got... People like us? I guess so. I don't know. I will say there has been a steady crew who have watched and listened to this show for like six years. It has been six years, Josh. They've tolerated us for quite some time. 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23. We started in 17, so six years. Six years you've known me. I've owed you a stake for about three. It's true. That's very true. Yeah. Thanks for being here, y 'all. Appreciate you. Even when it's really boring, how can you possibly make money when it's not boring if you can't be here when it's boring? Well, look, there's two things you can do. You can learn about the tech, which might sound cliche, but I did a lot of my Bitcoin learning in 2015, 2014. You know, there's not all those damage else to do, then like to learn what the hell's going on with this stuff, right? Drink the Kool -Aid, get indoctrinated, whatever. That was the time. Look at some of these long timers in the chat, Karen, Callie. We actually met in person one time even. She's been here for most of the time since we've been recording. I like this one. I like you, but I also hate you since 2019. Thank you, Liam. We will take it. You know, the thing is we have very little agenda other than our own bags, but we're just talking about our thoughts about them here. We're not trying to convince you to buy them or sell them or anything else. We're just discussing it and y 'all are here because you decided to listen to conversation. So there's very, very, very little opportunity to be victim to our terrible words. Well, hip hop is right. The best content does come during the bear market, I think. Yeah. So anyway, back to price. Yes, I've been DCA for months. I could care less with prices. The lower it goes, the happier I get because that means I get more BTC. If it goes below 15, sure. I don't care. I'm not worried about, we've talked about this for weeks, but if we're below 15 and it's 2025, then we're in trouble. But if we're boring and oscillating between 23 and 30 for the next six months, I'm not worried about it personally. 23 and 30 would be great. This drive chain nonsense is exciting me because governance debates historically have been bullish. If nobody cares about what you do with the chain, then it's not a good chain. Sure. Yeah, I agree. The ultimate crazy shower thought is where does BlackRock, how do they vote on the fork? Are people actually talking about a fork? No, but let's say it comes to that. I'm not talking about the most likely scenario here. I'm talking about a potential scenario. I'd assume they'd vote with the miners. I'd assume they'd vote for it. I don't know. There was something in the prospectus about forks for the BlackRock ETF. I can't remember exactly what it said, but yeah, I don't know. That'd be interesting. If that comes to pass, I don't think it will, but something to think about way down the line. Yeah. Zero X, lots of vowels says ESG fork. I don't know about that. I don't know about that. Fink has really backed off the CEO of BlackRock. He's really backed off of the ESG narrative. And if anything, we're getting a lot of press on the side of Bitcoin being ESG friendly. So it's really... Grid stabilization. Yeah. It's really changed after that. I think the New York Times piece was the bottom of the dirty Bitcoin narrative potentially. I think grid stabilization has to exist though. They have to figure out how does this not just waste energy, but how does it create stability? How does it use renewables? You have to push into those things really hard because otherwise I personally feel like proof of work feels kind of pointless if it's not just work, but it's also waste. Proof of work that's not waste, I think is fine. Well, you're securing the assets. What are the values for all of the banks globally? I know, but proof of stake is also doing a pretty good job of securing the assets. Proof of stake has yet to prove itself. It hasn't been a successful proof of stake chain since existed. it's We haven't seen Ethereum proof of stake in a bull market and it hasn't done so hot so far. So it needs time to prove itself. That's all I'm saying. Look at any proof of stake coin historically, and they don't do well for whatever reason, they do not do well. I'm not saying it's not secure. I'm just saying, look, it hasn't done well. Yeah, undeniable. I'm not sure about that. Let's pull up CoinGecko. You tell me which. EOS? Has that done well? Oh, come on. I'm talking about will Ethereum do well with proof of stake? Yeah. Okay. But I'm saying we can't just assume ETH is going to do well because it's ETH. It's changed its security model. It's changed the yield component. It hasn't proven itself yet in my eyes. That's all I'm saying. Neither has Solana, neither has Tron, Cardano, Dot, Matic. All this stuff hasn't really done anything or gone anywhere. Five years ago, we had a list of other 10 proof of stake coins that didn't do anything. I maintain this philosophy of Bitcoin versus Ethereum, wherein the variability of Ethereum is okay. It does change. It does have governance adjustments, but it's still pretty Chad -like. BTC, you know what you get. It can be good, but you just know what you get. That doesn't make Ethereum bad. Alts should have higher beta to Bitcoin. They're just riskier. And that's where all the stupid stuff happens. So yeah, there's the Lido issues with these. But there's issues with every proof of stake coin. Historically, they just don't do well over time. That's all I'm saying. There's issues with miner centralization as well. Of course. But miner centralization issues are very similar to the staking centralization issues. Similar, but I wouldn't say the same. All I'm saying is if you're drinking the ETH Kool -Aid, I don't care which side of the debate you're on. I'm just saying find one proof of stake coin that does well over time. I haven't seen it. I have not seen it. Ripple doesn't count. Doge doesn't count. Litecoin doesn't count. You will, don't worry. I hope ETH is the first one. But we just haven't seen it. That's all I'm saying. Yeah. ETH BTC appears to just want to keep going droopy sideways down. I don't know if we call this a direction or not. I mean, that is a downtrend over the last year, one year of downtrend. But it's not like puke -y. You want to hear a crazy thought? Bitcoin's having will be more bullish for ETH than it will be for Bitcoin. Sure. I don't think that's that crazy. It's down 23 % in a year, ETH BTC. Relative to previous bear markets, that's not much at all. 80%. Suzanne's got time. Or I'm saying we've created some stabilization in these asset ratios. I don't know. Well, it doesn't look bullish, but it doesn't look turbo bearish. You know, it looks neutral. It looks like it's ready for lows. It doesn't look like it wants to go higher, that's for sure. But would you expect it to? It's not the coin that's getting an ETF. It's not the coin that has all the flows. ETH? Yeah. Oh, dude, the first thing you do once the Bitcoin ETF is announced is assume the ETH ETF is on the way. Right. We've talked about this, that the best news for ETH is, of course, a Bitcoin ETF. Who cares about Bitcoin, right? That's fine. I'm not going to disagree with you. But I'm saying in the moment, the flows are just not going to come to ETH first. ETH will have its day. There's no doubt ETH will be at 10K. Clip it, chat, clip it and ship it. Talk to me in 2025. ETH BTC may do super well. It may go to 0 .1. But over time, it has not done well. I do like T -Bells flip mode. ETH. I think most of the civilized universe likes T -Bells. ETH to 10K is where you lost me. Not because... Is that too low? No, no, no. Not because I was unhappy. I was euphoric. Okay. That's all I need. Just little ETH to 10K action, Josh, and sunset. We ride off into it. That's all we need. You know what else I was thinking? What's that? It's the constant thought of these institutional products. Are they going to offer a yield component? Eventually, they should. I just don't know if that's baked in to the initial applications, right? Yeah. Shouldn't probably be baked into the initial applications. Why not? What if you have BlackRock, you know, take over Lido? What a crazy thought that is, you know? It is a crazy thought. Then we really get to see how good Proof of Stake is. Yeah, I just got excited. I think we need to think like that because of the institutional influence that's clearly going to be here eventually, right? What's going to happen when OFAC compliant BlackRock takes over ETH, you know? Same thing with Bitcoin. They're buying miners. They've got influence on all sorts of stuff. Just something to think about long term. Yeah. I don't think we've really seen the wars that will exist, like have looked puny compared to the wars of the future. No, I don't think we'll have BTC staking. But I don't know. Things could get wild, right? Absolutely wild when the most important asset manager on the universe is in our backyard all of a sudden, you know? Yeah. I want to talk about the dollar. But first, there was a ruling this week where there were two dissenting opinions in crypto's favor. But I don't remember what the ruling was on. Do you remember? I thought one was for Uniswap, but that was two weeks ago. No, it was about the Stoner Cats thing. NFT stuff. As an NFT person, what are your thoughts on that? I think a lot of NFTs played like dance real close to the fire. But at the same time, I think it's really interesting and encouraging to see SEC commissioners write these dissenting opinions and making pretty direct correlations to things like Star Wars collectibles of the past. Like, for someone to purchase a Star Wars collectible and think that, okay, this might be valuable in the future is not an unreasonable thought. That does not make it a security, you know? That said, I don't know that I would say like Stoner Cats or many other NFT projects were like in perfect compliance with what they were doing, too. Like, they might have been going a little hard on the, hey, a number might go up thing versus like... They were a product of their time. Versus enjoy the cats, you know? You buy it for the quality of the art.

Subscribe to my feed on AMP as well. We've got a great show for you today. Corey Erdman, writer over at BoxingScene .com, broadcaster at DAZN, ESPN +, plenty of other outlets. He joins me to talk about the news of the week. We're going to get into the Chris Eubank Jr. and Liam Smith fight. A lot of people surprised by that outcome. I want to talk about the possible resuscitation of Chris Eubank Jr. against Connor Benn. There's obviously a buzz building again for that fight. We have a big fight in the lightweight division, breaking news. I love when news breaks right before we record this podcast. Of course, Stevenson Frank Martin, that fight is a done deal for the fall on ESPN. We'll talk about that as well. A little bit later on, Erickson Lubin, 154 -pound title contender. He joins me. It's been quite the journey, I would say, for Erickson Lubin, who came into the game as this white -hot prospect. He was signed straight out of the amateur ranks. The first fighter signed to Iron Mike Promotions. Had a blistering start to his career. Then he had a couple of setbacks. The first -round knockout to Jermell Charlo. He had the knockout loss to Sebastian Vandora. He is back on September 30th facing Jesus Ramos as the co -main event of Canelo Alvarez, Jermell Charlo. I talked to Erickson about his journey through boxing to this point. Why at 27 years old he feels like he's just entering the best years of his career? Stick around for that conversation a little bit later in the show. At the top, I do want to touch on the news that broke on Sunday. Just touch on it because we're still missing a lot of information on what happened over in the UK with Brian McIntyre, the trainer for Terrence Crawford, the trainer for Chris Eubank. He was arrested on Sunday at the Manchester airport for possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition. As we record this, he is still being held over in the UK. If you know anything about UK gun laws, it's pretty serious stuff. The UK has some of the most strictest gun laws in the world and there are minimum sentences for these gun laws. A lot going on with Brian McIntyre, the trainer for Terrence Crawford. We'll talk more about it as we get more information. Right now, all we know is that he's been arrested, he's being held. For his sake, we hope for the best for BOMAC to deal with that particular situation.

That premieres every Monday on the Salem News Channel. I am also the host of my own three times weekly show, Timeless with Julie Hartman, which is on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays on the Salem News Channel. You can also catch those two shows, Dennis and Julie and Timeless, on the Julie Hartman YouTube page, and of course, you can download them on Apple and Spotify. It is great to be with you. To begin this morning, we're going to talk about a 12 -year -old Colorado student, who on Monday was kicked out of class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. For those who don't know what that is, the Gadsden flag patch, it is the don't tread on me flag that sometimes you see flying around the United States. According to the school district, which kicked this child out of class, that Gadsden flag is only flown in Trump 2020 flag flying white supremacist neighborhoods, which is obviously a lie, and not to mention insulting. This story, I think, provides a pretty apt synopsis of the state of American education for two reasons. First, the teacher who kicked this boy out of class falsely said that the Gadsden patch had, quote, origins with slavery. That is not true. This patch was actually made in the 1770s during the American Revolution, and the slogan don't tread on me was intended to be a message to the British that the American colonists who were rebelling against their rule were no longer going to put up with the British treading on them. That is the first thing that reveals the state of American education because it is very common nowadays for the content in schools to be taught incorrectly. Then the second reason why it says kind of everything you need to know about the state of our country's school system is that in addition to teaching the wrong content, students are being politically persecuted. There was another story in Massachusetts just about three or four months ago where a young 12 -year -old boy, Liam Morrison, was also sent home from school because he dared to wear a t -shirt that said there are only two genders. This is an ever -growing phenomenon in our country, but let's go here to this article I'm reading from American Greatness. On Monday, so two days ago, very recent, a Colorado Springs charter school removed a middle school student from class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack, alleging falsely that the patch had origins with slavery. A video circulating on X features a Vanguard school administrator explaining to 12 -year -old Jaden and his mother why the boy was pulled from class. The confrontation has gone viral, and due to negative publicity, this is great news, the boy was allowed to have the patch in place when he returned to school on Tuesday. That is totally the right strategy. What happened is that Jaden and his mother were so outraged by Jaden being sent home from school that they went public with this clip. They were on Sean Hannity on Fox News. I believe that they also spoke with Tucker Carlson, or at the very least, Tucker Carlson covered this story. That is the right approach. When something insane happens, whether it's in your child's school or in your workplace, you have to go public with it. That is the only way that we are going to expose the rot of wokeism and try to get it unraveled. This past Monday, in addition to being the day that 12 -year -old Jaden was sent home from school, also marked the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the famous I Have a Dream speech. In addition to Martin Luther King's great activism, nonviolent activism, the thing that ended the racist Jim Crow laws in the South was the fact that Americans were seeing the discrimination against black people on their televisions. The start of cable TV, or at least the popularity of cable TV in the 50s and 60s in contributing to the civil rights movement cannot be underestimated. It is because people started taking video of black people in the South being hosed down by police officers, having dogs unleashed on them. And in the court of public opinion, the Jim Crow laws and other racist measures that were present in the South no longer became acceptable because people were seeing with their own eyes how disgusting it was. That is what we need to do now in this arguably new civil rights era in our country. We need to go public, show video, send audio of a teacher berating a student. So I just thought that was interesting that on the same day that this child was sent home was the same day that Martin Luther King delivered that speech. Similar lessons can be gleaned from both of those experiences. Continuing from American greatness, this is a quote from the school administrator. The reason that we do not want the flag, the reason that we do not want the flag displayed is due to its origins with slavery and the slave trade. The Gadsden flag, the surprised mother responded to which the administrator replied the don't tread on me flag. The mother asked what would happen if Jayden removed the patch and the staffer answered flatly the bag can't go back if it's got the patch on it because we can't have that in and around other kids. They're talking about this patch like it has cooties, like if you get within five feet of it, you are going to get a highly contagious deadly flu. We can't have this around other children. Lest they get infected with the imaginary bigotry of the Gadsden flag patch, the mother shot back. Yeah, it has nothing to do with slavery, I love this. The mother is teaching the teacher. That's like the Revolutionary War patch that was displayed when we were fighting the British. Thank you Jayden's mother for teaching basic elementary history to an elementary school teacher. The administrator responded, I am here to enforce the policy that was provided by the district. This is such cowardice. It's not me who's doing this, even though I'm the one who sent the child home. It's a policy. I'm just hiding behind the policy. The mother and son pointed out that other Vanguard kids, Vanguard is the school in Colorado, are allowed to have other various patches on their backpacks. That's exactly right. I bet that there are students at that school who have come in with Black Lives Matter patches or pride patches or even t -shirts with those symbols. Why is that okay? Arguably Black Lives Matter, not just arguably, I mean it's pretty evident, Black Lives Matter is far more offensive of a flag than the Gadsden flag. Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization which advocated for uprooting the Western prescribed notions of the nuclear family. The Black Lives Matter organization has accumulated billions and billions and billions of dollars that has gone absolutely nowhere to places that would actually help black people. They purported to raise this money for bail funds and for scholarships and for public school funding. What we have found out is that it has actually gone into the pockets of the founders so that they could buy $6 million mansions here in Los Angeles. Those billions of dollars were also used to, actually they were used for bail funds, but they were used to bail out violent rioters who set buildings aflame. Those riots in 2020 killed 25 people, many of whom were black. But the Black Lives Matter flag is okay. I bet you there would be no issue, but the Gadsden flag, oh yes, that is bigotry. How about the pride flag? You know, pride no longer represents tolerance of those with different sexual identification. It a represents movement that seeks to condone the genital mutilation of young children in the name of so -called gender affirming care. Is that offensive? Would that flag be allowed in schools? I bet you it would. 1 -8 Prager, 776 -1877 -243 -777 -6. Back in a moment. Precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests.

Triple G has notified me that we actually have a clip of this recording of the administrator telling 12 -year -old Jaden, the Colorado student, that he could not wear the Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. I just want to play a minute of the video for you so that you can hear this. And for those of you who are watching the show on the Salem News Channel, you will see that this boy is so polite. He's clean cut. He has a nice shirt on and he's sitting there, you know, with his hands clasped together and he's just nodding and taking it in, incredibly dignified and polite. He didn't say anything like, come on, this is ridiculous. What the heck is going on here? He handled that with such class. His mother should be proud. Let's hear a minute of this clip. Thank you. Do they know what the Gadsden flag is? It's a historical flag. So there, the reason that they do not want the flag, the reason we do not want the flag is due to its origins with slavery and slave trade. That is what was, that's the reason behind the Gadsden flag. The don't tread on me, which is the Gadsden flag. Okay, so he, what's going to happen if he doesn't take it all? He, I mean, he is able to go, I was actually just telling him, like, I was upset that he was missing so much school. I'm like, ah! So I asked him, can he just take his stuff out of his bag and go back to class? Like, I just want him to go back to class. The bag can't go back. It's got a patch on it, because we can't have that in and around other kids. So that's what I was trying, and then he said you were close, so I was like, oh, okay. It's amazing that this administrator is saying, you know, I hate that he's missing school. He's missing school because of you, my friend, or not my friend, my enemy. All right, reading continuing from American Greatness, the head of the school told Jaden's mother that the patch was, quote, disruptive to the classroom environment, and that the boy was welcome to return to class on Tuesday, but only if he removed the patch, okay? Because of its creator's history and because it is commonly flown alongside Trump 2020 flags, the Confederate battle flag, and other white supremacist flags, some may now see the Don't Tread On Me flag as a symbol of intolerance and hate or even racism. Oh, gosh. We could spend the entire three hours on that quote. Okay, so many lies in that one sentence. But they're saying that Trump 2020 flags are white supremacist flags. How is that not political persecution? So half this country are white supremacists, really? And then I love this line here. Some may see it as a symbol of intolerance, hate, or even racism. Welcome to the tyranny of the minority. If one person is made to feel uncomfortable by that flag, the entire school has to go along with that person's preferences. This child has to be sent home. As the administrator said, he loses out on learning because this one person may, in a hypothetical world, be uncomfortable. So this is interesting because let's look at these four adjectives that were used to describe this patch, disruptive, intolerant, hateful, and racist. We live in a world where there is such a profound assault on truth. And what comes alongside that assault on truth is an assault on the objective meaning of words, because that's basically another way of saying the truth, that words hold a objective, truthful meaning. You know, when people say, well, what's the harm of calling a man a woman or a woman a man? What's the harm of saying words are violent? This is the harm, because when words lose their objective meaning, the rules and the standards that are associated with those words also lose their objective meaning, and then all havoc breaks loose. There is this standard in American public education. It was established in a Supreme Court case in 1969. The case is called Tinker versus Des Moines, Iowa School District. And it dealt with the fact that students came to class wearing Vietnam War or anti -Vietnam War wristbands, and they were asked to remove those wristbands. And this case went all the way up to the Supreme Court, and the court established what's called the Tinker standard of regulating speech in schools, because they had to balance the fact that sometimes it is necessary and even good to regulate speech in schools for disciplinary reasons, but also respecting the fact that students have First Amendment rights. So they established this standard, which essentially says that students have a right to express political speech, wear shirts, wear backpack stickers, wear wristbands. As long as that speech is not disruptive to the classroom and does not infringe on the rights of other students to learn. So here we see that this school district in Colorado is saying that Jaden's backpack patch is disruptive. And so if we are now calling a backpack patch disruptive, then it means that they can lawfully tell Jaden to go home and get rid of it, because the Tinker standard says that they have a right to censor speech that is disruptive. Once the objective meaning of words change, then that paves the way for the objective meaning of rules and standards associated with those rules to change. Another story that we will cover in this hour is this Spanish soccer league craziness where the head, I believe it was, of the Spanish soccer league went up and kissed one of the female players after the Spanish female soccer team won the World Cup. This kiss, which by the way I do not condone, you shouldn't kiss someone if it is unwanted or without their consent, but this kiss is now being called sexual assault. And this man who planted the unwanted kiss on the female soccer player is under criminal investigation for sexual assault, which in Spain, as in the United States, carries prison time as a potential punishment. Another perfect example of the way that if we change words, then we change the laws associated with those words. Because now if a kiss is called sexual assault, then you can be prosecuted or brought to trial for alleged sexual assault if you kiss someone. This is very scary. That is why conservatives make such a fuss when words are used improperly, because it leads to a slippery slope. And by the way, this is going to affect all of us. There are going to be many people, we're already seeing it happen, who are going to be fired from their jobs or sent home from school for supposedly being disruptive or racist when they're not. We have calls. We'll take them in the next segment. 1 -8 Prager 776 -1877 -243 -7776. I'm eager to hear your reactions. Back in a moment.

We are discussing the fact that this 12 -year -old boy in Colorado was sent home from school on Monday for wearing a Don't Tread On Me patch on his backpack. The school said that he had to remove it. In order to return to school, he and his mother went public with a recording of the administrator admonishing him. And the public outrage over this incident led to the school allowing Jaden to come back with the patch on his backpack. I should also note that the school announced that they would be canceling Parents Night due to quote, unforeseen circumstances. Clearly, they do not want to face some questions about this incident. Let's go to Steve in Chicago, Illinois. Hi, Steve. Thanks for calling in. Yeah, Julie, thanks a lot. So, here's where I'm going to part company with you, okay? Whatever happened at School of Colorado sounds ridiculous, okay? But you beat it like a dead horse a thousand times to make it sound as if this is commonplace. You talk about transgender issues, and Dennis Prager does it nonstop. And what you do, and the way to deceive people, okay, which is what I think you and Dennis do, is to omit from your discussions and your narrative other information that would make what you're saying completely false, okay? What is that information that we are omitting? Well, I'll tell you. I'll tell you. You guys beat this transgender drum like they are going to take over the world and destroy civilization. The fact is - When have we ever said those words? That they're going to take over the world and destroy civilization? I listen to Dennis all the time. It's incessant. And the fact is, is there are very few transgender people relative to the population, okay? That's true. Most of us will never meet a transgender person. The few people who are transgender are afflicted with a horrible psychiatric illness, okay? They deserve empathy. No one is forcing them to undergo any transgender hormonal treatment. I'm going to pause you there, Steve. I don't mean to cut you off, but just for the sake of time, I'm going to pause you and I'd like to continue a discussion, but I have to cut in. You are right, Steve, that there is a relatively low number of transgender individuals relative to the population, which is why I ask the question, why is teaching that gender is non -binary and fluid becoming so mainstream if this is so rare? And I encourage you, Steve, and anyone listening who may agree with his disagreement of Dennis' position and my position, I encourage you to read the California Department of Education codes, the Arizona Department of Education codes, New Jersey, Michigan. Many states, blue states around the country, in these codes have things that say that you should teach kids that gender is non -binary. In New Jersey, they say that you should not refer to children using gendered pronouns. Here in Los Angeles, the LAUSD, which has about 450 schools under its jurisdiction, has monthly Rainbow Club meetings where students as young as four years old are subjected to drag queen story hour. This is not a fringe thing. This is very mainstream, and they are also taught these radical gender codes. I agree that people who are experiencing gender dysphoria deserve empathy. That is why I, and I feel comfortable speaking for Dennis, that is why Dennis and I are so disgusted. And that is the word disgusted by this movement, which is saying, legitimizing the fact that it is normal to not feel your gender. These individuals deserve empathy, they deserve therapy, but what they do not deserve is being subjected to doctors and students who are saying, yeah, you're 13 years old or you're 15 years old and you don't feel like your gender, here are some puberty blockers, and by the way, you should have your breasts cut off. This is happening at the Duke University Medical School, Medical Hospital, excuse me, Boston Children's Hospital. This is happening all over the country. I'd like to give Steve an opportunity to respond. We may have to go into the next segment, Steve. We don't have much time. OK. Yeah. What you're saying about people having their breasts, women having their breasts cut off and hormonal blockers, again, it's a misleading narrative you're giving. OK. No, no, no female is going to breast cut off without her consent, without substantial psychiatric involvement. OK. It is not substantial psychiatric involvement. That is not true. You know what? You know what? I've studied this issue. It is true. As have I. As have I. It is very common for these kids. OK, I'm sorry. We're going to have to continue into the next segment. Steve, stay on. We'll pick it up. Back in a moment.

"This is episode 26 of the Growing in Love for Life podcast. Hi everyone, Liam Naden here again, pleasure to be with you for this episode of the podcast. And I've got some really interesting and I hope helpful information to share with you today on a very interesting topic that will really give you some more tools to help you to save your marriage if that's what you're struggling with. But just before we start, I just want to say a real thank you to all the people who've been emailing me with comments about these podcasts. It's really great to know that people are getting such great value out of them and I really love to hear from you, really hear your stories, hear your thoughts, your feedback, what you find helpful and maybe even some suggestions for what I could do in the future. So if you do want to drop me an email, I'd be delighted to hear from you, as I see it in my email is simply liamnaden at gmail .com or you can contact me through my website, liamnaden .com. Anyway, also, a number of you have also gone on to purchase one or both of my programs and I'm really thrilled because I know what a big difference these make. I mean, really, these podcasts, what I think what I'm trying to do is give you as much as I can, but I can't give you in the short time that we have together, all of the complete systems and processes and really the step by step plan, if you like, to show you how you can really quickly and easily, with the least pain possible, hopefully, really get your marriage back on track and turn it into something great. So if you haven't already, please have a look at those programs. Have a look at my website, liamnaden .com I've got two programs. One is a seven day program called Stop Your Divorce. How to save your marriage when your spouse doesn't want to. And as the name suggests, that's what it's about. It's about when you really want to save your marriage, but you've got a husband or a wife who wants to end it. Perhaps they're involved with someone else or they've just lost their way or they say they don't love you anymore. And so that's for you. That's to show you how to really bring them back on track and do the right things and my other program is a larger one. It's a 30 day program. It's called Save Your Marriage and it's a relationship transformation program and that really deals with much bigger issues than just how to save your marriage when your spouse doesn't want to. It's how to rebuild all the communication, the intimacy, how to remove all the hurts from your relationship. And you can work on that with your spouse or that's also something that you can do on your own as well. So both of those programs are available from my website, liamnaden .com. And I also have a free report which you might like to look at called The Five Keys to Saving Your Marriage Now, which is at my other website, growinginloveforlife .com. You can get that there. But most of the information I have is at my main website, liamnaden .com.

"We are, uh, here in the Bahamas. We are going to make it right. If you became a millionaire, would you keep working? The commander is here. What's going on right now is California's trying to figure out if this is going to be something that will pop your butt. Yeah. Oh, I can. Welcome to BitBoy Crypto! We're just talking about the Joker movie, everybody. Today is August 16. It's 1130 a .m. because we always start on time. We're going to have an hour -long show talking about crypto. We're going to talk about Coinbase. We're going to talk about a secret ETH whale that is a former president. You're going to want to stick around for that one. Also, some CFTC stuff. Another crypto millionaire found dead and some Thor chain stuff. So all my Thor fans, Chris Hemsworth, not Liam. We don't like Liam, right? Because the whole thing he did, he cheated on his wife. Yeah. But we do like Thor. I'm down with Thor. We're down with Thor. And he's got a little bit of time left before dementia kicks in, so. Alright, alright. Well, let's get right to the show, guys. Make sure you follow us, you know, and make sure you go buy some merch at hitmerch .com. You can see this cool ATB hat I got on, the cool ATB hoodie. Let's look at the crypto markets, though. How are they faring? We're going to go ahead and hit refresh. Oh, I want to give a shout out to a BitSquad member. They threw away the piece of paper with your name, but he gave us a mouth. Where's the mouse? Uh -oh. The mouse moved. Yeah, we had a BitSquad member send us in a Logitech with a track wheel. It was here last night. Owen. It's Owen. I'm going to get to the bottom of it, and, yeah, well, they threw away your name, buddy, but we appreciate the mouse there for us trackpad challenge folks, though. But let's look at the crypto market. It looks like it's taking a little bit of a tumble down. We are now down 1 .6%. We've fallen below 1 .2 trillion. I feel like we've been above that for a hot minute. 24 -hour volumes coming up a little bit. It was in the 30s. Now, we're at 41, basically $42 billion. Bitcoin dominance risen a little bit. It was 46 .9. Now, we're at 47 .3. Gas coming in at 36 Gwei. Bitcoin is down 0 .8%, and Ethereum is down 0 .9%, but some of these alts are really bleeding, folks. So, the alts are taking a hit. BNB isn't really feeling too much pain at 2 .3%, but XRP is down about 5%. Dogecoin down about 6%. Cardano down about 5%. Solana was 7%. Now, it's down about 6 .5%. Polygon down about 6%. What was that 7 % I just saw? SHIBA in you. Should have sold it. Should have sold. The sell wasn't in me. That's also down as well. Is the money flowing to... How do you say this coin, Tim? Yeah, I was talking about it this morning. See or say has to be the two options here. So, let's go with say. I'm going with say. I say say. Yeah. I think a lot of money is flowing into say. You see the 24 -hour volume is $1 .2 billion. Now, that could be $1 changing hands a billion times. But volume significant right here. The market cap is coming in at $380. That's not most of the tokens being sold for that much, but, you know, the tokens that are circulating, it is up. Do you think some money flowed into say? Yeah, I mean, clearly. I don't know if you saw it there, but on CoinMarketCap, it's up over 2 ,000. It was 2 ,100 % in the last 7 days. So, a lot of money flowed in, but if you look at the tokenomics, a little more than 10 % of the max amount of tokens are actually operating. So, not necessarily something I'm rushing to buy in, especially after the last 7 days being up over 2 ,000 % and the fact that it's the tokenomics are all good. I'm not buying yet. We'll have to see more developed before I'd be willing to buy. I looked at CASPA an hour and a half ago. It hadn't moved up that much. Maybe it was just a dip about 24 hours ago. CASPA is one of the top gainers of the day along with say CASPA up 6 .1%. But other than that, largely flat and then into the negative, but alts are bleeding, folks. We have HBAR, had big news, bullish news, now down 12%. Terra Luna's down, of course. Apecoin, down 10%. IMX, down 10%. Uniswap, you know what I'm seeing here, Tim and Drew, I'm seeing a lot of the SEC listed coins and the 48 coins listed in the Binance .US and I think Coinbase suits there. So, a lot of those coins that were listed in that Coinbase suit, they're beaten down. Do insiders know something, you think? Maybe, I don't know. Is there, yeah, there's no news that would bring them down necessarily. I just thought the whole crypto market as a whole is taking a little bit of a bath. All right, Servanda Estrada comes here for the nonsense. I like Eric Estrada, Chip, California Highway Patrolman. Servanda Estrada is one of my favorite names to read when we read names on Investing Bros. So, shout out to Servanda. Good to see you here. All right, all right. We also have Crypto Brat. Okay. All right. They get bratty when it goes down, I guess. Any thoughts on the new Celsius disclosure statement? We're talking about it, I need to dive down into it. It's a lot of moving parts, so I don't want to just have a cursory glance of the facts when still a lot of things we might not know. All right, let's talk about Promethium here, folks. Wait a minute, first, yeah, yeah, Promethium. Looks like we have a little press release here. Republicans, press regulators regarding Promethium's special purpose broker dealer approval. Pat McHenry from North Carolina led the committee here in sending letters to FINRA President Robert Cook and SEC Chair Gary Gensler regarding Promethium's approval as the first and only special purpose broker dealer for digital assets. They came out of nowhere, got all these approvals, and no one ever heard of them before. We covered it months ago. What the heck is Promethium? Where's Promethium coming from? We discovered a lot of insiders. Well, some Republican senators, looks like they had some issues with it. Here we have a quote. I think this is McHenry here. The timing and circumstances surrounding the approval of Promethium as the first special purpose broker dealer here raises serious questions. The approval comes as the committee is considering addressing gaps in the regulation of digital assets. We held a joint hearing just seven days ago, prior to the approval of this asset or SBBD. In that hearing, members discussed their plan to propose legislation on digital asset market structure. While Promethium claims it is a silver bullet for digital asset offerings, it has not yet served a single customer. There's also refused to make public the digital asset securities that they would support on his platform. And since they're limited to digital asset securities, the SEC has refused to provide any biting guidance on what digital assets are securities. It is unclear what assets would even be eligible. Here, I wanna show this story as well. They respond. All right, so we got a response. So we got the Republicans. They're like, hey, this is fishy. Stinks, you know, they're ripping the mask off like it's Scooby -Doo. Something's not right here. What are your thoughts on the approval? Do you think there's any chance that there's no insiders? No, there's absolutely insiders. And the fact that Congress is noticing it is actually a breath of fresh air, but there's clearly fishiness. Ben made a video. We posted it, what, two weeks ago, three weeks ago maybe at this point, just on the sketchiness of this entire story. The coincidences just go too far to not have some weight to them. All right, we have Asmyr, F this ATL traffic. Hey, ATL in the house. Boomer Sooner, do this move. That's what I know. Actually, do that or you do the wafting move too. It's like a drowning man. All right, Promethium responds to Republican concerns on the FINRA and the SEC approval. So Promethium, they got a little response here. There's Pac McHenry. He's the one, you know, raising the questions. So the LLC, the response takes the spotlight amid growing concerns raised by members of the House Financial Services Committee. Here we have a friend of the channel, Eleanor Terrett, tweeting about it as well. In reactions, Promethium issued a statement. The purpose built its technology with the goal to develop a market infrastructure for digital asset securities that is compliant with federal securities laws. So they basically said nothing while saying a whole lot of something there. In separate letters from House Committee, Pat McHenry and 22 other members, they directed it to the CEO of FINRA and Gensler. And you know, we kind of covered this, just kind of covering their concerns regarding the timing of the approval.

"This is episode 25 of the Growing in Love for Life podcast. Hi everyone, it's Liam Naden here and welcome to this episode. I'm really excited to be back and sharing what I hope is more great information with you about how you can really not only save your marriage but turn it into a fantastic marriage. And this is actually a really special episode and I'm really excited this time because it's actually the first time where I have a special guest on the show. And this particular lady, I've been trying to get her on the show for some time now. She's very, very busy and so it's taken a while to organize but I'm delighted to have her on the show. And I think the topic that we're going to cover today you'll find really relevant to what I've been talking about in all of my podcasts and also in my programs. And you're going to find this very interesting. Just before we get into it and before I introduce her to you, just a word about my new Save Your Divorce program. And I've had some great feedback already even though it's only recently been launched. And really this particular program, I've created it for the people who are really facing a crisis in their relationship and where they want to save their marriage but their spouse, their husband or their wife doesn't want to. And my 30 -day program, my Save Your Marriage program, that's been great for people but I've had a bit of feedback from people. They want something a bit faster, a bit quicker than that. So this new program, the Save Your Divorce program, it's a 7 -day program and it's specifically for you if your spouse is walking out, has walked out, told you they want a divorce, is having an affair, all of those things. And it's really a way to turbocharge getting them back and stopping, if you like, the crumbling of your marriage. So if you'd like more information about that, that's available at my website which is LiamNaden .com slash Save Your Divorce. And remember I also have my 30 -day program, Save Your Marriage, and there's details about that on my website as well.

"The blue jacket slowed the islanders playoff push with a 5 four overtime win against New York. Columbus blew a four two lead in the third period, but wanted on Boone Jenner's power play goal 40 seconds into OT. The jacket searched ahead in the second period on goals by Liam foudy, Kent Johnson and Eric Robinson. Macau pal Mary sparked the islanders come back early in the third period. We're going to try and salvage a point and thought we maybe left another one on the table there. Brock Nelson notched his second goal of the night, giving the islanders a much needed point.

"GP two championship with goal racing developments. That was news breaking also a few days ago and one final bit to let you know about Cameron hall. He's returning to his rally national junior super stock championship with triple M power by nationwide electrical for 2023. Some decent bits of news there, Lois. Yeah, what in this past couple of days being the Britain is great to see, for example, was raw or previous Scottish that he's got a raid for this season. But yeah, I believe he's going to be, well, I don't think that's a writer for that team. So I believe you might be the sole radar for the incompetent team, but we've got to wait and find out and if he is, he'll be the only of probably on the grid I believe. So yeah, it seems that Honda's dominating the superstar 1000 class, but yeah, it's great to see it is great to see the junior super sport class get more writers and it seems to be a class which is just like the British style cup but are production based and maybe slightly cheaper for some people. Do we really care as long as the racing's on? Good as well. Yeah, yeah, zones are racing is good or happy and yeah, I think we have a good season this year for the junior super sport. It's a class which in the past couple of years has just exploded it seems of great size is 300 race in general. It's just exported in grid sizes and Scotland that England even the world it just seems to be a championship which keeps attracting more and more people and it's almost where you see writers go and then to the super sport class while the British town cup seems to be a route for people watch what they're going to junior GP paddock. And continue to race the Grand Prix machines. All right. Well, yeah, we'll keep up to date with all the latest news as well. And check out our website motor sport dot radio for all the very, very latest as well. Right. Let's get on with our first guest here on the superbike show. We have managed to establish contact with him. And well, he wasn't too busy and we found out what he was doing as well. What sort of top high level athlete performance stuff he does on a Tuesday. It is, please welcome onto the super light show and motor sport radio Dominic Agatha. Hello, good evening. Hello, everyone. How are you? I'm very good. And you? Yeah, we're all right? Yeah, just chilling out, yeah, so thank you for coming on. First of all, we were wondering what sort of stuff you typically would do on a Tuesday night. Oh, just relaxing in Switzerland. It's already 9 o'clock, so. Oh yeah. Yeah. Before I went to the gym and now. Easy time fair enough. And well, yeah, I appreciate it. Who's the character with you've got like a fluffy tie that you move there? Is that a name? No. I waited one time by ice racing and ice racing Evan. Fair enough. Okay. Well, yeah, fair enough. Okay, so yeah, Lewis, I know you've got quite a lot of questions as well. And I'll be across comments that flood in. No doubt for you, Dominic. So yeah, take it away, Louis. Yeah, so David, the first two runs our world super banks is over. You've moved to the class this year with Yamaha. First of all, how have you felt like the first two runs of went for yourself? Yeah, for me, it's a new category. So I moved up from super sport and not only to world superbike. And yeah, it's not that easy because the bike has a lot of power, but also with all the electronics you need to set up the bike in a good way. But I could take two top ten, yeah, already my first race, I had a front row start with a third place. So was not that bad, but we still need to work on the puzzle to get really everything on the good way. And you mentioned the front row start in Australia. Was that result which was unexpected in your first weekend or is it something which secretly your back pocket you knew was potentially possible? Yeah, for sure in the first qualifying with disqualified tire to make front row start with 0.2 from the pole position lap time. I didn't expect I tried to be the first three rows that is very important that would be my goal. But to stab really in the front row was surprising. And this year, of course, you have brandy gardener as a teammate. So how has it been working with him so far this year? Yeah, we understand each other quite well. I know him besides a long time already in moto two. But yeah, it's always good to have a strong teammate beside me and he was world champion in one or two. I was two time champion super sport. So I think we can push each other and yeah, we try to make a great team result. And in Austria, of course, right yourself of the slight collision on track is everything all good still there and with your teammate are. Yes. Of course, it's racing. It happens, but for sure it's bad if your teammate crash you out when you're both fighting for a podium or top 5. So this was a shame, but yeah, we are we are still debating the threats of we try to work better for the next races. And you spoke about the two of your time in World War II, which was pretty successful. Moving to the world super bait now, how does the bike compare to the mobile Tibet which you previously a couple of years ago?

"My name is Leicester, and joining us this evening is all live all the way from Scotland. It's Lewis ray. Hello, good evening, Lewis. Even Lester, how are you? Yeah, I'm all right. Yeah, not bad. Yeah, we're hopefully welcoming a few guests on this evening. Guests, like former presenter of this very show, Liam Hodgins. Yes, another Scots for those longtime listeners of the superbike show. Liam host that co hosted the show with myself in 2019. And he's from originally done noon. But spent most of his time in Glasgow, and came to motor sport radio, did some stuff, and well now he's working for MotoGP. So, given that it's the first round coming up. We thought we'd ask him a few questions about it. Get some insider perspective on all the juicy gossip that's been what to expect. It probably doesn't know anything. You probably just speculate, just like we do, to be honest, but if you have any questions for Liam Hodgins, then you can get them to us. It is at motor sport radio on the social medias, or you can, I'll just leave a comment in the comments box wherever you're tuned in to this right now. Also, later on in the show, we've got Danny Webb live on motor sport radio as well. He's back from his honeymoon and he's here, Danny Webb greats to have him on the show. On Facebook. I don't even know. Anyway, yes, janny Webb here on motor sport radio coming up later. So if you've got any questions for him, then we are trying to get Dominic Agatha as well on the show. Hopefully dummies. I don't know what he's up to, some probably something Swiss, maybe. I don't know whatever Swiss athletes do at this time on a Tuesday night. I don't know, just preparing for the weekend. I'm going to suggest, but yeah, we are trying to establish contact with him. If we can get him on the show, we'll drag him on right here. So get your questions to either dummy or to Danny Webb and Liam Hodgins as well to leave him out. Asking maybe, you know, how do I get into broadcasting? Louis? How do I become a top commentator like you and stuff? Why? Those old chestnuts, but yeah, anything like that, getting in touch with us, use the comments box in the comments box. Below, right, couple of bits of news since last week, Lewis, since we were on the show, what's been happening? Yeah, so the final test for both two M what three have concluded with Pedro costs the top of the timesheets and looking strong head into season with many already Tapping them as their championship favorite. Running up last year too, I guru did not attend to the final test due to a dislocated rest and some potential fractures which now means he's at risk and not racing at the open and rem this weekend. Rory scanner continued to improve in the world with two class and ended the final preseason test just two seconds away from the frontrunners and throw every single session. He dropped his laptop faster and faster and more free, Honda would very strong support him with something which we've not seen for the past year or two. It seems that KTMs always had the edge, but it seems that Honda this year have brought something to the table within the first state, the top, the first four spots. Ricard de Rossi, on one of those hondas, was the fastest radar on the final day of portimao, which the menu was a big surprise, and it just shows how compared to the motor free walks to be this year. Scott was consistently at the front with his eyes already set on battle for the top positions within the opening round. And finally, of course, most of GPS back this weekend we're going to have a full preview on the lead up to this weekend with the introduction of sprint races for the first time and what would GP's history. Do we have to be not, I suppose, since Liam's on the show, and he's represent literally representing MotoGP. He works for MotoGP. Suppose we've got to say nice things about it. As controversial. Well, I suppose if we get him off the show before the end, we can have our real say what we really think, because we all share the same. Okay. Let's wait. I think that's why it's to say what happens, not everyone agrees with me and says that has the same opinions and such. So, yeah. Yeah, anyway, so yeah, that was a little bit of what's been happening in the apologies if I hear a peer distracted today. I'm just trying to establish contact with mister dummy. So if you tuned in, listening live. Get on this show, dump. Anyway, so yeah, other bits of news as well in BSB anyway in the past few days, I think this was last week. In the health performance world championship, Greg Marshall former fab racer will be making his debut in the championship. He's 15 years old. He's progressing up to the championship. Apparently began his racing at 9 years old, didn't say it was had most of his success at fab. It also doesn't stop like the team green junior cop as well, but also at fab as well. And where all the stars of tomorrow go to race today. And apparently Greg said upon this news the other day, he's very excited to begin his first season with BSB in the junior super sport class. He's feeling comfortable with the new bike and he can't wait to see what the season brings for him. Best of luck to you, Greg. So yeah, hopefully that will be all good for him. Watch how he gets on. Maybe let's have a chat with him on the show who knows, but you forget sometimes how young some of these riders are, you normally sort of associate the young riders with the British talent cup, the kids and stuff, but yeah, no, the junior super sport. 15 year olds and stuff. Anyway, also, happening over the past few days, this was, I think, last Thursday. Lewis ralo announced that he'll return to in competition on board a brilliant. Believe it or not in the national superstar championship, he was with them in 19 and 2020 as well and he says, oh, I'm coming home. He said, I won't do the accent, but he says he's coming home. I can't explain how happy is to be back. In the in competition team for 2023, competing in the national superstar championship and knowing Ian and my residency was 12. He says winning the super team championship supporting him through them. And he also finished third in the 2020 national superstar championship as well. So yeah, Lewis rolo top lad, we've added on the show before, maybe try and get him back on as well at some point. So yeah, that's good for Lewis while also Cameron Fraser returning to the Quattro group British

"Has been an entrepreneur since the early days of his life. He was the kid that was selling sweets at school undercutting the local store. He journeyed into ecommerce as he got older, continuing his entrepreneurial journey. Outside of tech, he's a runner and is in to fencing, recently completed his first marathon after training for about a year. In regards to fencing, he started when he was a kid. And did it all the way through college, which is actually where he met his now cofounder. Liam's prior business was a print on demand company, which allowed for printing and shipping at a local level. As they scaled that business, they came to be hooked on Google shopping and started using off the shelf tech to manage the campaigns. They found them to be lacking, and eventually built their own. And it became their competitive advantage. This is the creation story of Biden. So what we do at vid namic is we're leveraging machine learning and AI to help assist ecommerce retailers with one of their biggest marketing channels. And that marketing channel is the paper click model within Google ads, which is a Google shopping. So when you go to go online, type in a product such as men's running shoes, you'll see a carousel of adverts come up, so they're visual in nature, so you can see a little tile of the product image, their price, description, the carousels, there's typically around 5 of them. And when you click on one of those ads on that product, you get directed through to the ecommerce retailers website where you can hopefully go on to purchase and what we do as a technology company is we take an automate and apply a level of expertise to what has really gone beyond the humans capability, which is predicting exactly how much to pay for a single click and we can take into effect many, many different things which impact the likelihood of customers going to buy, and that allows us to price the click. So to bid in an auction as a competitive auction going on in Google for who shows up because if you imagine men's running shoes there's thousands of retailers that could sell that product and do sell that product and could take that spot on the carousel on Google. So what are technology does is it helps retailers show up, get more visibility on that carousel. So visibility that leads to revenue leads to orders leads to purchases, not the right profitability. So whether the right cost is coming into that as well. There was a team of us that built any commerce retailer so it's a marketplace, a print on demand business. So unlike a traditional ecommerce business, which has a warehouse has stock and then has the front end of ecommerce store and it has to require customers through Google and Google shopping. We had a print on demand marketplace. So it meant that we could access thousands of artists, illustrators, graphic designers who could upload digital versions, so of their product and merchandise it onto popular merchandise. So phone cases, t-shirts, mugs, they could place their graphic and instantly create a photo realistic product that looked like it had been photographed professionally and existed. We scaled that marketplace up to thousands of artists or sellers, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of images across millions of products. So it was a really, really large marketplace. And because it was printed on demand, unlike the warehouse models, traditional retail, we would just print it on demand after this month purchased that product with print it, and we built a distributed network of printers. So our model allowed them to print it on demand, and it allowed us to root it locally as well. So we'd send that order to be printed in the U.S. and shipped next day to the customer. So it was a really efficient model. And as we scaled that business, we became quite unhealthily addicted to Google shopping so it became our massive revenue channel. We tried other channels like Facebook, Amazon, we got some goods at some good growth through those channels, but always found that Google shopping was just this channel, which we just keep growing and growing as we got more inventory, more products, into more countries, we just started using technology off the shelf, where possible to set up these Google shopping bidding and campaign structure, but just found the technology was all kind of lacking the granularity of what we wanted to do and what we knew was possible. So we started developing our own technology in-house for about three years, which really became our secret to success, internally, and then we took it to markets. We made a pivot with our business model where we started to investors were asking us, we had an angel investment into the business, and they'd say, you know, can we use this technology? We've seen the results you're getting, the profitability, the growth, they've made investments into other ecommerce businesses, maybe running some themselves, and saying, could we use this technology? We were like, oh, no, we have no idea about sass at software as a service. And the offerings and all that go to market and have a strategy. So we really resisted it until one day we worked with one of our investors clients and just got a huge uptick in revenue and growth. And then we sat back and said, okay, maybe we're on to something here. Let's dive into the MVP then. So tell me about that first product you build. I guess this would be within the print on demand business or it could be after you decide, but that first product you, you built. How long did it take you to build? What sort of tools did you use to bring it to life? So yeah, we wear our first customer. We knew what was possible in terms of the different structures. And we really knew that the power of an individual SKU. So to kind of explain the MVP, we have to explain a little bit of context around Google ads and around Google shopping. Someone who's advertising a product and ecommerce product would group these products together with similar over items. And they would set a bit of cost per click bid or on a target on all those products. For every dollar in, I want to get $5 back and that will be their target. And that will be as granularly as they forget. Whereas we knew that every single item was unique, we knew that they had different profit margins, you know, one might be on sale one might be at 80% margin if it's not on sale, one might be at 10% margin. We also knew that some products would lead to higher average order values and higher repeat rates, so higher lifetime values. So we really knew all these products had these connections and these signals behind them. And we wanted to be able to build the campaign structure in the bidding from this individual SKU level as opposed to what was the best practice and what was the method used by other tools and in-house teams to avoid that complexity and group all these products together into hundreds or thousands into one ad group. In terms of the tooling we used, we worked heavily with the Google ads API to pull back information to set the structures. That's always a lot of different technologies going into it and to be able to do the big calculations to be able to make sure that we weren't overwhelming the APIs. That tasks were getting processed and concurrently for a lot of backend technologies we were using as well as the Google ads API. So we were sending it into Google, which is where the structure is built out. The Google Ad structure and the Google bidding that we're defining how much to pay for that click. It was very limited in terms of front end and then as we started to scale up from there. Yeah, we started to get our initial customers on board and again, we're kind of using their Google ads front end and our integration with it to drive this very granular SKU level campaign structure that we've built out. Hey, hey, come here, check this out. Can you keep a secret? Can you keep a secret nsync across multiple

"liam" Discussed on The Podcast On Podcasting
"Liam's absolute <Speech_Male> best advice <Speech_Male> for a new podcaster <Speech_Male> today. <Speech_Male> Let's <SpeakerChange> hear it. <Speech_Male> For me, it starts with <Speech_Music_Male> the purpose, <Speech_Music_Male> right? And have <Speech_Male> clarity on the vision <Speech_Male> of what you're trying <Speech_Male> to accomplish and <Silence> why? <Speech_Male> It's one that <Speech_Male> we've gone through <Speech_Male> a hundred episodes <Speech_Male> before getting to that <Speech_Male> point. And if <Speech_Male> we had started from the <Speech_Male> beginning with more <Speech_Male> clarity, I think <Speech_Male> we would be in a <Speech_Male> much better space <Speech_Male> of thinking <Speech_Male> through strategically, what <Speech_Male> are we trying to accomplish? <Speech_Male> How are we going to do it? And <Speech_Male> how do we add value? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> If you were creating a <Speech_Male> show, is it for <Speech_Male> you or is it for the <Speech_Male> listener? There <Speech_Male> are people that I know that <Speech_Male> run their own podcast <Speech_Male> that it's for them. <Speech_Male> They create the podcast. <Speech_Male> It's <Speech_Male> for them to create <Speech_Male> a library for their <Speech_Male> children on business <Speech_Male> advice <Speech_Male> for the future. <Speech_Male> In that case, <Speech_Music_Male> the listenership <Speech_Male> doesn't matter. <Speech_Male> It's all about that inquisitive <Speech_Male> nature. <Speech_Male> But if you're trying to build <Speech_Male> a business about <Speech_Male> it, it needs <Speech_Male> to be focused on <Speech_Male> who that listener <Speech_Male> is and what value <Speech_Male> you're trying to <Speech_Male> give to them. <Speech_Male> And being crystal <Speech_Male> clear on finding that niche <Speech_Male> find a niche, <Speech_Male> it is a <Speech_Male> very crowded world <Speech_Male> and a very crowded <Speech_Male> space and podcasting. <Speech_Male> There's more and more people <Speech_Male> that are coming on board. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> so the best advice <Speech_Male> I can give <Speech_Male> for those who are looking to <Speech_Male> make a business or <Speech_Male> have it be poignant <Speech_Male> is find a <Speech_Male> niche that no one <Speech_Male> else is occupying <Speech_Male> and be <Speech_Male> ruthless <Speech_Male> about <Speech_Male> driving into <Speech_Male> just subject matter <Speech_Male> about said <Speech_Male> niche. <Speech_Male> Best off this <Speech_Male> chair is for conference <Speech_Music_Male> room. <Speech_Music_Male> What does that look <Speech_Male> like? And <Speech_Male> really go into <Speech_Male> that and make sure you're <Speech_Male> passionate about it. <Speech_Male> So here's what <Speech_Male> I'm getting the <Speech_Male> most out of that. <Silence> <Speech_Male> What's that other guy's <Speech_Male> name who said that other <Speech_Male> cool thing? <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> Begin with the end in <Speech_Male> mind from the 7 <Speech_Male> habits of highly <Speech_Male> effective <Speech_Male> people. Stephen covey, <Speech_Music_Male> I think, <Speech_Music_Male> correct. And <Speech_Male> these <Speech_Male> are 7 habits of <Speech_Male> highly effective people. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> less effective <Speech_Male> people don't do <Speech_Male> these things. <Speech_Male> So you basically <Speech_Male> are saying to <Speech_Male> our listener, as your <Speech_Male> best advice <Speech_Male> to a <Speech_Male> new podcaster <Speech_Male> is to start <Speech_Male> with purpose <Speech_Male> and clarity of <Speech_Male> vision. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> Liam said, if <Speech_Male> they had started <Speech_Male> their show, if he <Speech_Male> had started his <Speech_Male> show and <Speech_Male> had that purpose <Speech_Male> that clarity, <Speech_Male> that vision <Speech_Male> from the beginning, <Speech_Male> then he would have been way <Speech_Male> better off. <Speech_Male> And then he said, <Speech_Male> find a niche <Speech_Male> when you <Speech_Male> realize who <Speech_Male> you're helping and <Speech_Male> how you can help <Speech_Male> them be okay <Speech_Male> office <Speech_Male> chairs, <Speech_Male> for example, <Speech_Male> be okay to <Speech_Male> just offer that one <Speech_Male> thing. You don't <Speech_Male> have to be a chair company <Speech_Male> that has <Speech_Male> sofas <Speech_Male> and armoire <Speech_Male> and davenports <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and chairs and <Speech_Male> office chairs <Speech_Male> and all these other things <Speech_Male> because you're the chairperson. <Silence> <Speech_Male> He's talking <Speech_Male> about actually finding <Speech_Male> a real niche <Speech_Male> within a niche. <Speech_Male> That's what I got from <Speech_Male> it. And I hope that <Speech_Male> you're thinking <Speech_Male> about this too when you <Speech_Male> go and start your podcast, <Speech_Male> start with purpose <Speech_Male> and clarity of vision, <Speech_Male> begin with the end in mind. <Speech_Male> If he had done it <Speech_Male> on his podcast, <Speech_Male> he would be way <Speech_Male> further ahead <Speech_Male> today <Speech_Male> if he did that a hundred <Speech_Male> episodes ago.
"liam" Discussed on The Podcast On Podcasting
"Out of curiosity for you and your business, like when you had business partners and maybe you have partners today also, but when you had business partners, the big question is, how did you guys determine who was going to be the voice on the podcast back then? Or were you both on the podcast when you had a business with business partners and the intention was to grow the company through a podcast? Did you both become hosts of the show or did one of you say, I'll take the reins or the other one said, you do it. I couldn't do that. How'd that go for you? For us, it was an easy decision, right? The partners that I had at the time, one was back office, wanted nothing to do with being anywhere on anything, didn't like being present at all, right? So it wasn't going to be them. And then the other one is more the strategic analytical back of house, right? Executional. And so it wasn't going to be them either, right? And so for us, the decision had to be, who do we need to build the credibility for? So an important distinction here, our podcast is not our business. A podcast is a support marketing component. That helps drive our business elsewhere. There are lots of people where the podcast is the main business and they're selling coaching services or other things where that engagement is their primary outlet. So important to distinguish not us. When we get back to who is the voice and who is the one doing the podcast, and for us, it had to be, who do we need to build credibility for? All right, and if I was going to be the one that was going to be out front and center talking with the institutional capital guys talking with the high net worth investors and I was the one that was going to be leading the company and on paper that Sue's leading the company, then I needed to be the one that we were establishing the content on the credibility for and I needed to be the one that would be able to step in and do podcasts. So to be clear because I think this could have been taken two ways when you said who's going to be the voice of the podcast, you reverse engineered it and said, well, who do we need to build that credibility for? And when you say that, does that mean that your team decided that they needed Liam to have more credibility or did that mean that they needed a certain avatar to see credibility for the company? So I understand. Yeah, so the first part of spot on. All right, we reverse engineered to figure out who would be the one that was on the show. The second part, I think, is twofold as you articulated. One is, if we want to continue to build credibility in a very crowded space where someone goes and types into Google, Liam Leonard or lions cove or whatever that is that we're popping up and we dominate that first page through organic search.
"liam" Discussed on The Podcast On Podcasting
"I wanted it to be perfect. And so I didn't speak naturally. I spoke in a forced way. I spoke in a, how eloquent can I sound even though I'm not actually that eloquent way? And I think that the takeaway from this articulated scripted, perfected thing is it's either going to be fake or it's going to be authentic. And if that's your authentic way, if you are articulate and you are scripted, you'll attract a few people that know you, but if that's not naturally you, and that's you trying to be a little bit better than you normally are for your episode. It's going to come across as fake. So your step two was, let's just do stories. Let's just utilize people's stories, my stories, stories of clients, stories of guests that come on. And we'll teach our listener through stories. We will teach through analogies. We will teach through examples. And that worked, and it made you feel much more comfortable. And you're going to go to the Goldilocks, the hybrid way. Where it's like a little bit of scripted articulate in a way, but in an authentic way and utilizing the stories, and here's the big takeaways that I heard you say, the step three for you is going into the hybrid goalie locks. A is you're going to have in mind thinking who's that target audience. B, at the end of the day, you care about the relationships, and then I want to say, it sounds like these lead magnets that we've been talking about, you even said this, Liam, and I just loved it. You said I want to have, quote, resources for my perfect target audience. It's a resource. I think of it as a resource. And here I am telling my listener that it's a lead magnet. I'm telling my listener, this is your lead magnet. This is how you grow your business and Liam comes in and he's saying, I want to provide great resource for my right person. And that resource can act as a lead magnet, but I love the thought of between a resource and a lead magnet. So a lot of good stuff. How about yeah, go ahead, please, jump in. In my mind, the resource has to come before the lead magnet. When I started thinking through, okay, I need a lead magnet. What does that look like? It was like, okay, I'm going to go write a book, or I'm going to go develop this, but it didn't tie, right? It didn't tie to where the value is. It didn't tie to the audience. It didn't tie to the resource that they wanted. And so that really has to be the starting point for this to be authentic for it to be powerful for you and work in a way that you're looking for it too. Yeah. How about editing? Who does your editing? Is it you or do you hire somebody? Yeah, so we hire a firm similar to what Adam does here and what he offers is obviously

"After we've reiterated it and now it's all focused on giving back, great, trying to enrich people's lives currently in reaching my own life in terms of learning. The question set becomes much more natural and inquisitive. There's a rough structure and some rough guard rails of what we want to stay in. And we have that conversation with our guest ahead of time. So it's, hey, we want to live in this area. However, it's always geared towards what your area of expertise, what are you most passionate about? What are you interested in for the guest? And when you dive into that and you're really hitting on those things that are passionate about them, that they want to share the energy, the excitement, all of that become so much more organic and translates very well to the audience who appreciates that. And so I think the question set becomes more these open ended questions that get at what that core expertise is. What are the most exciting things that you're working on today? May not have any correlation directly back, but if you set it up properly and you do your research with the guests to know what their area of expertise is, you can create those ties within the rough guardrails that still resonate with the listener but allow your guests to be able to express themselves fully. And I think getting them comfortable and allowing them to express themselves fully through those questions that are open ended and really laying into their passion speaks volumes. So I'm getting two big things that maybe a new podcaster would learn from. One of them is when Liam started his show, he was scripted. The second one is that he was utilizing a funnel and it felt forced. So he wants to avoid the F word, the force toward the funnel word. And instead of going ABCD, we're just going to be

"Liam Leonard from lions cove. You know, the lines cove should have had a double L also. Liam Leonard from lions, I don't, I can't think of it. But it's good to have you on the podcast as we record this. You've published nearly a hundred episodes, which is pretty remarkable. So where I want to start out is what you wanted the podcast to do for you and if it's done that yet through almost a hundred episodes. Yeah, that has definitely changed over time as we've gone through our process with the podcast, but I appreciate you having me on the show Adam. I wish I had more double and triple L to be up just up to par with the triple-A, not quite there, but we can aspire to be like you. You are a triple L, Liam Leonard lions. There you go. All right, well, yeah, so what did you think that the podcast would do for you? And has it done it? Yeah, so originally when I started the podcast, the premise was that it was going to be all about customer acquisition for us we work with high net worth individuals. And the idea is that we would talk to people who had a sphere of influence within high net worth individuals, they would hear the show, they'd be interested, and they would essentially come to us as the business. Great in theory made sense. We came up with a topic that was in the financial space that we obviously offer our services in. But didn't have any clients that ever came from the podcast in the first 30, 60, 90, 180 days. And so eventually there was a decision point that came. That said, hey, do you continue the podcast? Because it's not meeting your initial objective, or do you pivot? Do you think about it differently? So what I did is I started to think about the podcast instead of as a customer acquisition. And as

Have you ever felt like some weeks. Seem like an entire season of life. Recently i was given some of the most exciting news laced with an unknown that had me in despair. It sounds odd trying to put what took place into words. But that's the best i can do. This was a moment where joy was expounding and fear nearly shackled me. I learned two things about myself in this very long week. I have not overcome my desire for control. And i saw once again. How important our prayer warriors are two weeks before this. I had spoken to a friend sharing with her. That i really felt like i'd overcome this area of struggle in my life. I believed i fully handed my desire to control over to the lord clearly and obviously i couldn't see what was coming. This news made me drop to my knees.

Still say a little. You know not not too obvious. Is the scene quote unquote with your father. And how that. And how you really just poured your guts out. And that was a really good acting scene for you. How how is that to kind of literally. Just put it all out there. Oh thank you for the compliment. First of all and For me i mean it was a it was a really important scene to me because It gets to show that you know. Billy is not just this kind of You know one dimensional thing. He's not we're not just making a show about Character that you know. It's easy to do one thing but to show to to to show everybody that you're more than just one thing is is. I think kind of like a brave thing that you have to do and so it was really important to me that that i Do my best job that i could you know. Try to do my best job and It was it was weird. You know it all. It's already so weird and esoteric the whole episode with the whole fact this acid trip and and i think in a in a way it's kinda strangely fitting and i think kind of you know what part of what it is. Is this kind of metaphor for you. Know they talk about how time is standing still in the episode. And i think for this old thing. It's kind of like it's an out of body experience for for billy. He just doesn't everything that happens. It's almost like there's this force that's leaving him there without his his knowledge. Anything since all his own free will but he you know he almost like someone's driving him to have to go do this this thing because he's gotta take care of his is family and so yeah..

How do yourself to take one more step. That's a really good question. Really good question. I think i think you need to remind yourself who you are and what you want to what you want to achieve So it's not just running. If it's you wanna get motion at your job then it's reminding yourself the processes that lead to the promotion so it's going and maybe a couple of minutes early or doing that extra project that you weren't asked to do so if you're running it's like you don't need to stop but if you can get one percent better. Today you ran a five k. Last week great. Could you get to that telephone. Poll past the five k. Today just to get a little further and then when you start stacking little tiny wins on top of each other. It makes you feel really really good about yourself and those small winds.

"More alive than when i was planning for this event. And then doing this event and the aftermath and seeing who had touched so for me. It's like if i can train for it right and do learned from all the mistakes i made. Maybe i won't be broken at the end of it. But i can have an even bigger reach so i weigh the pros and the cons and how i feel in that process. I can't replicate that feeling anywhere else. So how far into these planning session You know if. We're going to talk. Like if i was going to give you a percentage that'd be very low like we're like we're in the conception phase maybe like fifteen percent so so we have like a rough idea of where we where we wanna go as far as the rokos early stages of talking with potential partners to help us put this rap event on But it's definitely Still in design phase. So do you know. How long did he says is going to be. I don't quote specific distances or specific checkpoints. Just because in the last two weeks. It's changed three times the little you know it's like we'd literally drove up to cape britain. Which is where. I will say that it's going to be part of it will be in cape breton study on ending will. We're looking at starting in cape But it's going to be what i can say is it's going to be roughly a forty eight hour events so not twenty four to forty eight. Okay okay are you on apply any sleeping timing toys each street Pretty straight through like well. We'll have a couple breaks like maybe like a certain amount of time on with a small amount of time off kind of thing but No sleep will be once we finish it luck. Okay so so you do all these things. And i guess we'll pause influencing people. You know impacting positively. How does that feel for you. If he amazing man like it. It literally i i had no idea of the possible impact. We are having on people but then to have that scale from the the great grandmother down to the eight year old boy and even like some some things. Charities said to me recently with like after school programs and where some of the money were raising going there literally building a community center right now in puerto peak for like after school programs for these kids. All this stuff. So it's like there's so much good coming out of it and just doing something we loved in the. I would have done that for free so to do something that you would do. For free and have a positive impact that like cut my cup very. It's overflowing when i do stuff like that so it's very good feeling you know on actually one although to look it like if it didn't happen you into the race. This might not have happened. This never would've happened. It's like i. I like to think that a lot of things. So like when i tore my knee. If i didn't tell my knee i probably would have a very very unimpressive. Ten one or two thousand dollars towards my university education. I would have probably flunked on university. And i would have never went to australia and new zealand. Learn those lessons and then also cove nineteen. If that didn't happen we never would have done this way. So a lot of the biggest obstacles that seem like they've come up in my life. I've actually turned out to be the biggest blessings which is seems counterproductive. But it's just the way they've turned out. So are you going to do like a ted talk alike show podcast we just talk about motivating people on stuff. 'cause justly when you talk. I think he's mean you should do. I mean i would. I would never rule anything out..

"I don't know if i'm in good shape to be talking to someone. We're sleep deprived but this eight year old boy on the doorstep and he's like liam. I've been following the run. I'm super inspired me and my friend. I'm going to try and run four kilometers next week. The and that's when. I think it really set settled in for us of what we had impact around us and then it made me feel real good for what we did. I mean okay so you this think you raise all this money You finish your body's sticking stole like did you see the doctor on the following day or no so i. I gave it a couple of days for the inflammation down so literally for when i took my shoes off my running shoes off and my socks. I- i exaggerate. Not and i really regret not taking a photo. I'll take a photo after the next event but my ankle was the size of novel cardio and it's like if you know if you see someone very very like morbidly obese how they kind of chemicals. I had huge kangols like they were like from calf down to my foot. It was all one with it was it was biblical dude. It was bad. My brother had to help me get dressed for three days afterwards. I couldn't bend my legs. He he literally was my nurse. So how is this like Like sitting down in an is bott-. Do you do something like this does help. Yeah but like even for the first few days. I couldn't even get in the bathtub dude like that. That movement was not an option. Like luckily for me or airbnb had a walk in shower. Okay so i was clutched. I at least got to shower but yeah no fair like i had to take a few days off work. I if i couldn't put pants on. I wasn't worried about ice baths. Okay so how many days if you like. Did he take for you to stop feeling okay. Ish probably three or four days and i started feeling somewhat humid again To then i went to the hospital got xrays on my legs. They they see nothing like inflammation and stuff and he's like yeah. It looks like your shins. Were pretty like splintered off and stuff. But he's like overall. It's just like inflammation the kind of thing you'd expect if i really no i need more is now in nova scotia the right now for an mri but in halifax it's over a year. Wait and a new glasgow which is where we applied for me to get mine. It's like four to ten months. They said So as of right now there could be something going on but out. Okay so you know And then How long do you feel you feel normal again. Maybe like three or four weeks. And then i like could be at work without too much pain now. I still was feeling like dull amounts. 'cause i'm on my feet a lot like training clients and stuff. I was feeling like maybe between two five ten pain but very manageable but by then i was obviously dressing myself. I was able to work out my upper body. Life was returning to normal to some degree I hadn't run until literally last week was my first round though. That's month-to-month yet. August first and then november so end of november. So yeah it's a good chunk so like that was basically your doctor advice or just you listening to your buddy. Mostly me listening to my body. So obviously the doctor. I've had the same doctor. He literally delivered me. So you walk into a show dr counter. When i when i went into his office he first question is like you. Try doing fucking what.

And i've been home now for two and a half years so what lady to what was behind the decision to come back home. I love new zealand and australia. But they're really fire so it's like literally probably if you were going to point on a map it's probably as far as you could get from nova scotia in the world.

"liam" Discussed on Marketing Spark
"You enjoy their content. They enjoy yours. That's really great. I guess on the on the flip side to that. I think you i've learned that. Lincoln is a business platform and there are a lot of people there to do business. And a lot of people who were there to business may just be putting content out or having a persona that they're they know is going to generate revenue for their business but that's not necessarily their intention or they're not necessarily there to be super authentic or they're just there to sell right. They're not there to really make relationships so it all depends on How you go about finding people and relating to people in conversing with people in identifying what their true authentic authenticity in their true intentions are. And i think that's the thing about lincoln for people who aren't on linked in yet. Which is i mean. They're seven hundred twenty million people who have linked in accounts not to say that all them use it on a regular basis. You really have to going. Back to your your. Why why do you want to use it and figure out like how do you get value from linked to get the most out of the time that you're going to spend on it whether it's an hour a day or once a week or a couple days a week. I also wanted to ask you something that you launched recently called lincoln. Doozy's i guess you're upping your game or your expand your game or you're moving into new areas. Maybe you can talk a little bit about. What is this thing that you've created. Why did you do it and you hope it will go. So linked to is a is a basically a page that i created for people that are passionate about the platform. Like i am and there's a lot of people like that out there and you know i think for me personally linked in isn't the only thing that i want to be talking about every day right. That's not my. I care about star tech startups a- care about revenue operations sales marketing customer. Experience like all those aspects of business matter to me a lot and what. I found myself sort of thinking about was okay. How much time do i want to spend talking about. Linked in on my personal profile page versus page dedicated just to linked in all of those things. Come into play right. I'm not the kind of person that creates content ahead of time. I i write down ideas. When i have inspiration but i don't create an editorial calendar i know people that of sit down on sunday and just bang out all their copy for the week. I can't do that. I not that way and so you know. I sort of got to this point where i was saying he will. How am i going to actually talk about the things that i want to talk about without feeling like there's an opportunity costs associated with it if liam darmadi is more than just lincoln Guy that's darby is right. But linked enthusiasm is part of my part of my hobbies part of my passion. And i think that's why i carved it out separately so that i pose more stuff about linked in without necessarily taking over my entire profile as just the lincoln guy like. That's not julio darmadi is it's just a piece me early ironic thing about about lincoln. Is that people. Love commenting engaged on linked in..

Liam has established himself as a leading voice on linked in and as important a go to resource for people looking to capitalize on link. Given lincoln's wrote this year and how people are using it.

So you and i spent a lot of time on linked in. It's been awesome this year. We're gonna talk a lot about the platform and how it's evolved and how to get value out of it but before we do that when you're not on lincoln and it seems to be like you're on it a lot like i am. What's your day job. I've been technology startup seeing here in washington. Dc area for pretty much entire career. I graduated from college here in two thousand and five started out as a recruiter at a startup tech firm and then Went to work for a few different startups in the area. And i've always kind of been the jack-of-all-trades none so to speak Which is a good thing for a lot of startups. Is things change so and you know it's always kind of a moving target and you need people that can be agile and you know really adaptable. So that's kinda how. I got into the role that i'm in.
