Well there are a lot of people who are in need who are struggling going through a kind of figuring out the next steps This is this is definitely a terrible situation To be into health risk of leaving the house and then not actually being able to potentially provide for family. I can only imagine how how I would feel in that situation now. We have a special guest call again. He was drafted in two thousand fifteen first round eleventh pick. Nba Blocks leader in two thousand nine hundred all rookie. Second team. Two Thousand Sixteen. Let's go back to college a little bit third team all big twelve and two thousand fifteen big twelve freshman year. Mcdonald's all American First Team Parade All American two thousand fourteen hours and over twelve points seven rebounds this season for the Indiana Pacers special guest. House turnaround appreciates you call into the pull up. Doubtlessly you doing. I'm doing great man trying to hold up. He's like everybody else. Arthur good Jordan. You said that he has dogs. I have a dog. It's only right that we kick off the conversation you know. Besides what's going on in the world right now. You have dogs and cats you have. You have a mini animal shelter at home I I do. I'm a new dog owners so it's been an interesting adjustment for me. I'm two weeks in right now. we're trying to go through the potty training stage and it's been a hit or miss for the most part but mostly hits. He's only use the bathroom in the house. Four Times in two weeks most notably today. She left a beautiful yellow stain. On my wife plush carpet so That was the the morning news So to speak during these times not much action happening in the house but providing us with all of that you have any dog stories for US early on in your childhood. I know you said you have had dogs. Yeah so I had a dog. I really grow the cats and house. My mom loves cats wooded reason and my dad's like tape animals like he really does he. To keep on Chemo. Happy Whatnot so I got a little dog. Little fell on the dog. I'm sure you prefer bill a Maltese. Yorkie eighth grade. I think he'd like thirteen years old. Maybe and still spry as ever so gone a long time. I think he's actually get more with us and then we use do with him. I think he's used to having to help them. So kinda roaming free now. We're just constantly home. I mean you can kind of tell with dogs. They have ads. When you know what's interesting for us for me and we have. We have two dogs two cats. I feel like the animals are more irritated that I'm home now that it's like this whole process of they don't they don't have their alone time so it's been a big adjustment for our House. S. C. J. said we we have basically a mini animal shelter. It's very You know it's quite hectic but I my question for you with that mind is like now that you have all this time and obviously it's not time we any of US anticipated. What have you been doing differently throughout the day to not only escape from basketball but also like stay productive? Well the biggest thing and being a professional athlete obviously see drinking a little bit as well as it's routine that I think During the season even all these you have a certain routine you get into the first couple of days. I wasn't going stir crazy like just not having anything to do workout and dump everything by like ten o'clock then you know the entire day so I kind of just got to retain wake up now. My workouts in legal per run a little makeshift Jim. Mike Araj I mean. I'm pretty much got everything on eating their Do Yoga as well. Actually just back from that And then after that I kind of time to to at least study was going on around the world as far as Obviously the current virus right now seeing what's going on parenting come came up with that and I try to learn something new every day. It can be used to be random subjects like whether it's all about politics about the stock market something about I don't know some of my family members they're gonNA try to like just learn something new every day and night easy in the day gift you hours of video games that smart and that's something. I've told a lot of people to try doing during these times is step outside the box. Do something you wouldn't normally do whether that's reading a book that that you would normally read if you'd like nonfiction may be venturing into fiction and for you learning different things that are happening around the world and just kind of adding skill set. I think that's crucial invite because as an athlete we're used to challenges we're used to being able to compete and do certain things and I think when you step outside their comfort zone that's when you see the most growth you talked about yoga. I know you've done a big transformation on your body understanding the importance of nutrition diet and just kind of finding that overall mental wellness. When did you start practicing yoga consistently and how have you been able to kind of keep it going? I know there's a lot of virtual stuff gone in. Some places may still be opening and allowing people to practice at six foot Social Distance Minimum. But how have you been able to kind of keep that ally? Because with the with this season the schedule we travel so much. It's hard to consistently do it now. We have this huge break to where we can do. Just about anything within the home confinements. Yeah so the biggest thing with me. You centers is that they like to challenge myself ways and that's like yoga is on thank you. There's no peak to it like there's not like Baxter like Yoga instructor out there. There's always something that you can get better at a job. You can do so with that. Being said like translation. My body was huge for me. You know I came in the League. You know Kinda rookie free frail and you know you're going against guys like White Howard and the data Jordan. The real strong is the league so I knew I had to do something. You can let all the way she went. But it's all about function -ality and In the flexibility especially being a guy like me who you are but I'm on the perimeter lodge around running a lot so This time has been perfect for that. You know I have a private instructor. We usually meet up at this park outside so I mean it's pretty funny. It's the opens. People will just walk by. You seem big Black Dude. As Yoga in the middle of this park in this neighborhood the look. I get are quite hysterical. But for the most part Yoga's into the moment work on your breath and whatnot so nothing hughes this for me was probably my third year in the League. That's when I really start doing it consistently Not as much during the theme with the schedule The whatnot. But I'm like this is perfect hunters go back in Quite routine maximum. Lose power wouldn't be able to do Within a given off season see. I know you've talked a lot about yoga. And and how beneficial? It's been miles. Can you speak to the benefits? You've seen mentally to Because obviously physically your body has change and and we've seen that without question but I'm curious mentally the benefits that you feel you've gotten from it or it makes you lock in relation really focus on the breath. I think there's a lot of things like like like like my my yoga teacher. She's crazy by likes me. We do a lot of unorthodox stuff like she her studio. There's a whole bunch of Wassenaar find quite legit wash. That are flying around right and I thought that was like the weirdest thing but it actually intentional to put in there to make you lock in and knock focus on the WAAS 'cause like you don't let them know message you there's this weird like energy balance thing that she's trying to preach to me But I'm not sure how true that is but it is what it is anyways Yeah like that or like show tape my mouth shirt. I have to briefly my nose and literally like makes you just focus in on the moment. You can't think about anything outside of your practice. Did you can be in a fool pogues and you. It takes like all your body strength and you start thinking about something else you slip one. Little Muscle can Clip you up. You just fall like on your face. Oh really maybe locked in on the side of things. When I'm in the month the free throw line. Kinda just focusing a little bit better than I had in the past or in the fourth quarter in my kids don't know keep his ass or something like that. I'm able to focus on my breathing. A little bit more as opposed to gain tired so if they had a lot about benefits to so you're in your yoga class and they're literally lost flying around the room. Lots of wasp legitimate bro. Like straight straight misogony type stuff like I explain to the people they all come back with the same reaction but now it's to the point now like I don't even know that they're just trying around you hear them one of Landlo- me one time I just couldn't even stay on pose but that's just a focus. You put up over time just getting better with it. You've never been sung. I've never been sung to know and it's like I'm knock on wood. I'm never been stone Cj I'm trying to picture near Damn near seven foot miles in this class with wasp. I mean you don't you don't mess with a Waas A. B. is is is its own entity but a wasp is different. Cj Can you? Can you picture? This would never participate in something like this and I'm the type of person who really enjoys yoga like I really like Yoga especially high yoga. But I don't like those types of creatures insects can't get down with them an alum of I'll be able to to focus In a room like that but I think I think I get what you're saying from a from a mental wellness standpoint. If you can really just concentrate and be president with what you're trying to accomplish in Rome understanding you're just there to get yoga done. I can see how that can make things better for you especially in the sports world and Segue into the game where we played you guys. You hit a big three down the stretch. We needed that went to. I'm still thinking about it. We needed that went badly. We're getting stops. We're in Indiana one possession. Game you hit three may make it into a two possession game from a concentration standpoint. You said that it helped you with free throws would you say that it's helped you with your overall ability to not only perform during games would be able to block out the media because we we live in a world where we're constantly criticized and receive constructive sometimes not constructive criticism from fans Yemen. I think that you know this season was really big for me. You know I transitioned from. I've been the five like mine are life and I'll play it a little bit of foreign college but this year full-time like power forward and that was a huge adjustment for me. But I'm used to shoot three in an opponent of out of the printer and the entire game thousand announcement. I just didn't see coming off season so obviously I struggled like the first like month month and a half the season just to kind of find my niche out there if I'm a role and just in from like the pro- productivity standpoint a lot of criticism you know especially you know from fans from national international and then you know even coming off the team. Usa stuff this summer in obviously that was a big thing as well so does here in that criticism from everywhere. It was suggested for me. And I I I went to the point where I deleted like all my social media like out of state off everything but then it kind of to me that you just let these people win in a sense and I kinda got back actually a full conversation with my yoga teacher about it and I think she kinda got me back into back in the swing of things not real like are obviously. I'm a mentor. People I talked to she really helped me out. During that time you know going back to that That center of Focus and then like the the what you're trying to accomplish in the long run. You know not the moment so the criticism you know suck to this part of the business you know the price of fame in a sense but Kind of getting back to my roots and getting back to what.

"This business? I don't know. I mean, you know, I'm over fifty so I think they might think, well, he's just been around multifamily so much designing. He just he picked it up. Probably would be my guess. I don't volunteer the fact that I own apartment complexes, it and, you know, kind of feels like I'm showing off in a meeting if I if I brought that up so it, it, I don't, I don't know to be honest with you. But I certainly think like I'll architects. I'm a landscape architects on design, and the swimming pools, and the, the cool Cabanas and entry signs landscaping arrogation that kind of stuff is what we do. And so, you know, on our consultant teams we have architects, and civil engineers, and you see them throw out ideas, and you, you just you can see clearly they don't understand their client and what they're trying to do. And so I I don't. I think I don't make those kind of mistakes in front of our client, you know, making making oddball suggestions that. In bring it up. I could see why you wouldn't bring it up. I mean it'd be a little bears. And you tell the guy sitting across from trying to build an apartment complex you own sixteen department complex it's two thousand six hundred seventy eight units. Give you that look like what, what are you talking? So I could see that. Let's step back. You're now you're doing well in the business, and then two thousand eight kind of snuck up on everybody isn't it? Oh my goodness. Yeah. You know. So I, I was seeing it firsthand all my clients, they're there is large developers. They live and die by getting loans, you know, they put small amounts of equity twenty percent into their properties typically so eighty percent of their, their projects are financed by banks and the lending just disappeared. I mean within like three months it was. Well, there was this funny period, like for the first three months of Bank would only lend a forty percent. But you could go get a second Bank to lend you nother forty percent and you kind of made your eighty percent that way. Well, it's, it's like having two masters, and you just get never make the deals works that they did that for about three to six months. And then finally that went away to. And, and so there was a good almost a year. No one was lending, a dollar. And so, yeah, I, I had about ten employees in two thousand eight I-. I laid everybody off, but to people, I get out of our office building. I moved us that we I finished out my garage, and I moved in my office into Mike Araj and we just hunker down and it was it was, you know, looking back, it was like it was kind of a big deal. But really wasn't. It's nice thing about a consulting business. I can shrink to the size of the volume of the business that I have in. So that's what we did. And we leave for about a year and a half. We just worked out on my Karaj and kind of clawed our way back and the financing started coming back. And, and certainly the funny thing about the whole thing. Was everybody was it? No one could get alone. So no one was like even going into a single family house. Everybody wanted to rent, there was just a surplus of renters. So my clients had a demand, huge demand for their product, but they just couldn't build it because they couldn't get the financing. So even though you had the ability to contract, your business very quickly. Take it back to your garage into some -ployees. Did you have an I'm looking the way to ask this? So it doesn't come out wrong. Did you have any animosity even that was did you did it, Bob you that this is this taken such a large toll on your business and your financial situation? Business. No, you know, when you have you have.

"Yeah. Why is it still in cleaning my garbage cans? I hate the smell of Mike Araj. And I don't wanna do it myself. It's so that opens the door to conversation and having that wants to be learning more about what you could bring to the table. Yeah. Why? And I, but I think that the key point there at least for me. And especially the example, you just gave. And I think it's true with the positioning questions as well, which I think is is important for listeners to understand is that for me at least the value the positioning question because it's technique. I've used for a long time was is that what I'm doing is. I'm changing the way the customer thinks about the problem. Correct. And so it's not reconceptualized sort of the value providing, but it's how do you get people to think differently about the problem? You're trying to solve because bad has transformed value for people. But let's come back to point that people don't know how to buy what you're selling. They don't have that expertise this companies the only one in the state of Minnesota that offers it so you describe it as a problem, it's really more of an opportunity because you don't even know that this exists, sir. You're just accepts, you know, garbage cans, smell, and I've gotta deal with it. So so the idea is it's a creative way to introduce them to something that they didn't know. Could be better could be different absolutely not very clever, very clever, and I presume it's been successful for them. It's worked tremendously. Well, they they were stuck as you can imagine someone knocks on your door once talk about trash service and everyone says yet we're happy with to working with. So unless you're offering it at fifty percent off which is not the strategy of this company, very difficult to get someone to have a conversational to make writing or unless you're current contractors dumping trash on your lawn when they're upping your can or something so right, right? And so there's a five step process that I teach in the book and how to develop the positioning questions. And so the first question you have to ask yourself is. Why does this particular differentiator matter to appear? Got to be able to understand why this would matter to a buyer and a lot of times I have conversations with sales people with executive. They'll say this is one of our differentiator is when I ask them why this matters, they really struggle to articulate why it matters. And then I bring them back. So let's talk about this. You've been preaching this differentiator for how long expecting someone on the other side of the desk to see your vision. Share your passion yet. You can't even articulate why it matters to them. So it's great way to introduce the exercise. So I we had understand who would why it matters then not everything matters to everybody. So, you know, you think about an ABI to be sale, you might have a technical buyer economic buyer. You might have the user very very different conversations need to take place. Some are going to care about some differentiator some are gonna care about others spur, we have to figure out what this particular differentiator who's. A right audience. The third is the right circumstances..

"Just a really unique unique experience, we're giving you access to a celebrity that you might just absolutely love. And I'm a huge fan of pink and talked about it. Yeah. So that's coming up. When you're the song dry. The time you had to call your parents for something utterly ridiculous. I mean, my story might be a little more common. But it's still super embarrassing. I was like a freshman college. I think my parents were nice enough. They're wonderful enough to buy me a carves. An old crown Victoria, pretty old. It was whatever. Brecca turn the music down. I just want to make sure everyone. Here's Kevin's embarrassing story in the total clear driving's car. My parents gave it to be wonderful in my girlfriend of the time. She which different schools three and a half hour drive to go see her if I wanted to a weekend. So I was doing I got about halfway there and the carts completely died, and I was stranded on the side of the road. So I did have a cell phone of the time. It was you know, for cell phone and call my parents, my dad had to come get me. And we had to get the car towed. And everything I mean, they gave me this car. But no point that I think that I would need to get an oil change your take care of it or anything. So I had it for a while never even thought about anything like that. So it just it just you'd never seen your dad change oil in a car in the driveway. I just at the. At that stage of my life. I think about it. Yeah. I just I was I was an idiot, right? And the engine just totally seized up. Yeah. The new engine probably I think that was just the end of the car because it was pretty old, and it was on the side of the road. We had a tote somewhere. We did something with it. But it was that was the end of that for me. It's not that bad. It's barrett. It's no Joe story Jill taught the jug. Integral was on fire. Laundry, and I dropped something. I'd bet down. I look up at this big jug in the corner. My garage. What did you think the big jug did did something? But I don't know what it was called or anything. I've seen them around garages all the time when I bent down and looked up. She's speaking of the water heater as the big jug in your garage. Lame inside this jug.

"Go have a bowling trophy. Mike Araj was pretty good. I'm not gonna lie to you little spin on that thing joy and not a good bowler. Pretty excellent Eddie house. What Eddie house look at the new thin. Eddie house for our radio audience. Let me describe what any house looks like handsome. How much you lose any like thirty. Uh-huh. How hooping playing basketball, and then changed my diet a little bit fish chicken rice. How come geez? Jeez. Did your wife say, no, no, no, not at all really are the big three the big three. And I mean, you know, what the other thing was I was you know, as I was walking around a little plump. I was getting compare. Everyone's like, oh, you look like your brother, and I'm like well. Yeah. I know we kind of got similar trae. But always been the handsome one. Yeah. And as I started getting compared to I'm like, you know, what I can't have that. No one let me fix this. Can't get confused with him. No more. I love you might he he loves you, Mikey. But he's a good looking one. So, you know, whatever. All right eleven years in the NBA first of all come on. Let's give it up for Kyle guy. Hit Noche three free throws. You're not no not impressed. Because that's what you do. I mean, he's the best shooter on the team. He probably was the best shooter in that game. He's supposed to walk up there and knock them down not to take anything away from the fact that he did it. I mean, but you've you've ran over that scenario every single year since he was eight years old whenever you're working out. You you you put them scenarios on your? So we're down by one. I got two free throws. I gotta make you've already lived a situation. And I is and him being the best shoot on its shouldn't be no pressure you so walk right up to their and knocked him things down is not as impressive as as everybody's making it out to be. I find was a foul. I thought it was a it was a foul. You got protect shooter. It was definitely a foul. He was getting hit on his legs before the ball was even released. He got fouled twice. He got fouled before the ball was shot. And then he got fouled because he wasn't able to land to land. So he got out twice. I always thought that that you have to protect the shooter that guy invaded look at it. He moves under him. You can't do that in the NBA or college. We keep. The inbounder what he should have that pass. It never happened that big massive in Sade in that direction. Anything anything going to the basket not allow a pass going towards the basket anything away from the best? You can live with that with one second because he the ball's going that way and he's got a heave along. But anything going towards the basket, you gotta try to protect it. And that's twice armor. Let Kyle guy. Get a shot at three he scored nine point six points in nine seconds. Yep. You're right. All right. So the athletic is it's like a sports page subscription based sports page. They interviewed about twenty five thirty percent of the guys anonymously and the NBA national a bunch of questions, and which player would you build around and they had Janas number one by a mile, and then they had Anthony Davis way ahead of harden way. I had a staff, and I don't get it because it's a guard wing league..

"Chance. Yesterday, a couple of days ago, I'm going to do a little project when I get homes have known my wife, and our oldest son Quinn are going on a little mother son trip in New York with a bunch of buddies. They're going to go see. The musical the prom. If you get to New York, please go see the musical the prom is really really good. And I think I mentioned to you that I know some people that invested in the. In the plate. Here's something kind of interesting that I think you you you like stories about business, don't you? We anybody more stories about toilets. Okay. Well, we can talk about those thing. I like both. You can go to play Bill that com. Okay. Which is the when you go to a Broadway show, and you can plug in the show in it'll give you all the financials of how the show is doing like any Broadway show. How many tickets they've sold? How many people on average the house like how big the house is eighty percent or one hundred percent whatever that ticket gross ticket sales since the show started. It's very interesting that that would be a publicized thing. Because I mean, it's not like a public. I don't think they're public companies is production numbers. Anyway. They're going to see the problem. I'm going to be working on our back porch. Where after reduce some of the trim after seventeen years. There's some rotted trimming take it all parts can put the screens. And so I went to my favorite lumber yard. Harry's. Lumber on the northwest side pick-up some of the trim and stuff that I need and I hadn't been to the lumber yard and a while. And I'm so comfortable there. Like just walking around you. I spent so many years going back and forth. The lumber yards all the time and like as I'm driving through and there's the bunks of CD X plywood and the bunks of two by four and stuff. I it's like my happy place. I don't know how to describe it. I'm walking around this lumber here tonight. Just this whole little like. Feel accepted. You know, if you go to a spa, and they go in they like, oh, here's some cucumber water, or whatever it might be that they give you what will they give you the spot. I don't know. I massaged. Okay. Yeah. I don't like that you let down are you massage guy. Not exactly Joe. I am. I enjoy the cucumber water enjoyed the massage. I really do enjoy it. All. I want every day if I could go. I love the cucumber water. That's great. I don't wanna be touching me. I don't or your well. Now the ribs. It's a problem. They could hurt themselves in sue me. I mean, I gotta be careful. I'm public figure anyway in my now, I'm if I'm not careful I'm going to be like Adam Schiff with my pencil neck, or whatever it is a prison column. Anyway. Talking about don't know my happy places being walking around a lumber yard. I was just so happy and they're so nice at Harry's. But just walking around and seeing all that stuff. You know, it's in lumber yards. You those little two by fours on the ground. And it just made me feel like brought me back to being a young, man. Simple, man. You really are or complicated. Depends on how you look at it. It's a lot less expensive than that darn cucumber water. I'm just walking around a lumber yard and cheaper than a girlfriend. What's it worries? He's walking on a lumber yard. And no trees are trying to touch you either. None. Exactly. Nobody's touching me. Everything's there. Already cutting dead beautiful thing. That's my tip for the day. Here's Paul in LaPorte, Paul you're on WGN. Good morning. Good morning. I've got a problem from that that cold snap. We had back in early seventy Lori and by heater went out one night. And thank God. I got somebody was at -mergency cool, you know, in the evening. And anyway, the bottom line is the guy left me a lot of chimneys sort all over the place because his shot back broke taking all the old crud even though I had routinely headed cleaned apparently not as good anyway. So I got black soot. And and I talked. To them, and they came and they actually cleaned a white wall to head just had painted and was amazing amount. But I've got two two bays of Mike Araj, and it's like on coding, everything even the ceiling air ducts and stuff, it's a raise branch. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute that this came. We're not a reassure that this is not happening. One of the system is running. Or what why why do we have so much sucked because he cleaned it. The guy did a Cerro cleaning and went in there and got the job your ductwork. No hope of the actual Burs of four, you know, four rows of pilot assembly. Okay. And that had gas gas heat, and it was filthy. You know, the whole thing was just absolutely. And so this came from when he was using a shop that it was just dumping the soot into the air is your furnace in a mechanical room off the garage. It's in the garage. That's in the arrived the entrance to the basement, and it's the three three bay garage only use to one for storage by and basically, he was you know, everything was going smashing Lee well considering emergency situation, but the his shot at have broke down and all of a sudden the soldier died, and you know, this on the wall is it on the floor is it unsealing. Or is it everywhere everywhere coating ladders, you know, in on the one section of the garage. I keep my ladders loom ladders the whole nine yards. Yeah. I did get them to come back and do the wall. Okay. And they did the wall with a very fine brush that I hadn't happened to have four brush, and they used some kind of some mild soap solution, and and then wiped it down manually with with rags or. Well with these fiber fiber cloth, take loss. Yeah. Yeah. And how did that do that did great on the wall? Okay. LA's had so much that I didn't realize of course, I got my call you got that to the car wash. But you know, it's just been one of those things where you got change your shoes every time you went to enter the Hal. Well, I mean, I think that at this point where you probably have to do is with the. You know with the bladder and that kind of stuff we got probably empty the garage out and bring all that stuff outside. And I would probably I would spray that down with a solution. You know, with the soot typically, you know, it's got a little bit of oil residue to it. So we want something to cut the grease, and if you took something as simple as dawn dishwashing, soap and put it in a pump sprayer and sprayed everything down. I let that solution of warm water and dish soap kind of sit there, then you could take a pressure washer or a hose or even brush and kind of brush it all up and then that same solution. If you wanted to you could use on the garage floor to kind of scrub that out, and then rinse it that way, you get as much of that out of there as you possibly can. I also am I wanna make sure that that system that you have there is working that kind that amount of soot doesn't seem right to me. And let's make sure. That there's a working carbon monoxide detector that's in the living space of the home and just for curiosity's sake. I temporarily put one in the garage just to see that that seems like a lot of soot based on your description to get out of a gas fired furnace. And I would I would be worried a little bit about the the safety of the whole system just to make sure that there's not a crack in one of the burners or in one of the heat exchangers that's dumping all that soot into that space. Paul. Thanks so much for the phone, call housesmarts radio on seven twenty WGN. We'll be right back..

"When you know your body's doing what it's supposed to do. So that's why the adjustment period is tricky. If someone starts on day one and never fast it before your body's going to have a little bit more adjusting to do than mine. Does my body knows how to be in the fasted state? So the fourth day, I'm boom in back to myself, exactly. And this is something completely anecdotal. But I typically because I eat a lot of carbs will allot a lot by the low, carb standards, but not a lot by standard, American diet standards. But I do get most my car smo- from fruit, which tends to be higher in more, like fructose, more balanced ratio. Not straight up glucose, like more, starchy carves or rice or something. Like that. I do find. That. And this is very consistent with me. Whenever I for some reason, try the other types of carbs like rice or sweet potatoes or something like that, which is pretty rare. But whenever I do. It's really weird. It creates a very can tell that. I'm filling some sort of like gin storage. I think in my muscles compared to my liver that I don't normally fill and the next day or later when I'll be moving around and stuff is just a very different. I can just tell that I'm burning difference hub St. of energy, if that makes sense and even a burn feeling in my muscles that I will not get. I never get that feeling when I follow my typical diet. And I wonder if it's because of my muscles, you know, filling up with Lijun and then burning the glycogen and creating lactic acid from fiscal activity. Whereas normally they would be pleated. It's very fascinating very anecdotal. But I've noticed it very definitely does that make sense. That's interesting. I do all the car. Cbs? So I haven't I don't have any any noticing the difference. 'cause my Diet's pretty much. You know, I have the starchy carbs. I don't eat a lot of fruit, actually. But that wouldn't make a difference the scenario you're talking about. But yeah, that's that's Nateing. You know, I think we do become more in tune with our bodies. I'm definitely could tell I felt different. If I didn't have an understanding of the process like I do I might just thought gosh, my body's really tired from all the fun. I had but it's a lot deeper than that. Yeah. Definitely. So I do think there is something there though with filling liver glycogen versus muscle glycogen and things like that. So. Yep. Jonathan it's a good question. Long story short do think you will deplete your source faster. Definitely with weightlifting H I T actually burns preferentially both like gin and fat. So that would do it as well. But no the numbers are not sending stone for everyone. So all right. It was a little bit out of order. But it it was perfect. It flew it. Did it did our things with you? Everything is really good. I did one of those crate remember how I threw my retainer away in the trash can yes. And had to go digging for it. I did something even worse this week. A what was that?

Yeah. It's it's I forget the company that made it, and I thought it's beautiful Sunday tiny houses, you can take the simplest structure. But once you style them properly, they just shine. They just you know, it takes on a whole new appearance. Why don't you explain to people? What is a she shed. It's something that she sheds down by this seashore. They it's basically, you know, there was a man k yeah, you heard man cave all the time. And and eventually people like that's not that's not fair.

Now, it's become so popular as a TV show just based on she sheds we were approached for it at one point in time. But we're too busy at that juncture to be able to do anything with it. I don't even know if it's still on the air. But yeah, it's become this like more recent craze that she sheds and they're beautiful. I'm gonna tell you need to go out to the home and garden show today there it's today. And I think it's until about six o'clock today. Now, it's even later nine. Oh my goodness.

I I think that that's what most people think I did whenever I moved into my tiny house. But really shrinking Ray. Yeah. Yeah. Would you do with all your stuff shrunk the house? Yeah. Getting rid of your stuff is is like a dozen saying is one of the hardest parts and for a lot of people books is their number one thing. Right. And I know that there's recently big thing on Netflix Murray condo, you know, getting rid of the stuff that doesn't inspire you in the last thirty minutes, spark joy, I know it does it bring joy don't keep it around. But there's a lot. I mean, there is helping a lot of people get rid of just accumulation, right? Just just stuff that is just the you don't have for a reason, you just have it because you have it, you know, and just being able to like get like emotionally just be like, you know, what I'm gonna let somebody else have this for a little bit. Because what I tell people what books I go. And I'm like like, yeah. But I love that book early. Yeah. You're gonna read it again. Well, no of already read it. I'm like, okay. Well, then let that book go out in and let somebody else like read it and love it for the first time. Right. Because if you're. Never gonna read it again. It's one of the most selfish things you can do is to take that that tree. If you wanna get it. You know, take that tree that died and has this information, and you're just going to hoard it for your whole life. You know, I'm the only one to ever read this. Because like, no if you love the book shared around, you know, like give it away. Yeah. We have a lady here in town that has a business called clutter free. And she came and cleaned out. Mike Araj in my pantry. We're getting ready to install new floors in our house. So we've got to get rid of a lot of stuff. Nothing should be on your floor except furniture legs is my opinion. Some of those businesses that are clever. There's at one eight hundred junk of Mike, why didn't I think that where you go into someone's house? They declawed then they sell it on EBay at flea markets and make a fortune. Yeah. Yeah. I should do that. So yeah. But it staff is a big deal for folks, I deal with a lot of seniors that are downsizing from the great big four bedroom house, and I help them do that. But we have a whole downsizing package where we help them sort pack Moraine for the mover stage their house better to sell it and stuff like that. The biggest challenge is the stuff, of course, getting rid of the things you've taken your whole life to accumulate. And now all of a sudden, it's like people think you should just get rid of them. Right. Well, some people are fielder defined or that stuff defines them. And I'll admit sometimes I'm proud of that. I love collecting weird art, and my house is like this circus of madness. And I as a showplace not like some of that stuff from me to get rid of it. I don't know it potentially or currently. Sparks joy. But I think what you're saying is a lot of these things you realise took so long to produce or accumulate. You know, how much money went into it's tough to get rid of them. You know, you might get nothing back and most of the time you get nothing back for us. Yeah. Yeah. I want this couch for nine hundred dollars. And now someone wants to give me thirty dollars for it. And Craigslist, I'd rather light it on fire. No, not really just on principle or that's tough to cope with. But you kind of have to accept like accept it. Now, if you're downsizing, you're gonna lose, you know, don't think about what you want paid for stuff. You're not going to get that money back for it's like driving a car off the lot it immediately depreciates. Well that folks feel like they're losing it at the moment they separate from the item. And then you forget it. Well, and that's not really true. You lost? It the moment. You purchase that item. You lost the money. Oh, yeah. Of course. And people talk to me about the price their house ought to sell for. Well, I paid this for just two years ago. And I'm telling them. Well, you can't get quite that much for it now net because you've got expenses to pay. Well, I just can't lose that much money right now and the minute you buy a house you've already lost the money to resell that house, so think of it that way you that happened back then you decided to buy a house so you decided to take on the expenses selling that house, and that's kind of with anything you buy on that boy, our time is going so fast today, isn't it? Talk about this. I'll I'll tell you on on a on a really positive note talking about money. My house has changed my entire life. I I I don't have rent. I owned my house free and clear, and that means that I am able to live a lifestyle that I wouldn't otherwise be able to because everyone listening can just think like what if what if my mortgage money, what if my rent money, especially in what if what if that just all went away. And I just had that my pocket every month. I have that in my pocket. So, you know, someone if my rent was going to be a thousand dollars to two living Donald here on thirty thousand dollars. But then every so that's like get twelve thousand dollars more a year than someone doing my exact same. That's great incentive there. I hadn't gene seen Joe. And awhile. What's interesting is I can tell that his life has changed because he rolled in. He's got a Rolex on radio. Zoot suit teeth. Captain gold all because he went tiny town saved all this money, and and Gucci handbag. But for for real, I I've been able to have been able to when opportunities come up, and I'm able to fly like a Becky, son. My cousin was was going skiing a couple of years ago. And I was like, yeah, it's gonna be so cool. I was like dude I'd like to go, and he's like, I don't know there's going to be like this much money like done. You know, and he'd already did all the planning. So I just tagged along that was awesome. I I had that because I didn't have to pay rent. Yeah. It's it's a beautiful. I don't always sent to anybody be at vehicles my home. And I don't live in a house as small as Joe's. I'm married. Two kids and run my business on my house. It's around eight hundred or so square feet. I own it out right now. And it's very liberating and same thing like people like why don't you know? I remember going for a loan. They approved me with this massive amount of money. So he could buy this house. It's like four thousand square feet of muck. I don't want that at all. And because I chose to go smaller. You know, recently, my kids I took them to Paris because I could afford that instead of dumping money into a house. Let's travel something. That's exactly right. You live debt free. And last month, I flew to Paris and back on a whim. Yeah. Well, I'm going to New York. And then all of a sudden, I found out, oh, you can go to and from Paris for that much money. It's actually. Yeah. Early is cheap. Mark hang on. Because we've got to take a little quick break. We've got a caller that's calling in.

But. I don't do that now. So I'm gonna throw that out there. I think the applicants good product good update. And I have started to use it. And it's changed my workflows. So that's why I mentioned it. I wanted to pick something completely different. We go to an Espresso machine this year that I love. It is hard where it's kind of technological in some ways. I guess it is the barista express which is made by Brel. But in the UK as branded a sage they did like a deal of big chef who anyway, but his branded a sage I really like the I've really really liked this product. It's changed my life because I use it multiple times a day, and it makes the vest coffee that I've ever had home. I absolutely love it. So I'm going to go with the sage barista express.

I think yeah, I'm on a lot of podcasts at the end of the year. I feel like everybody realizes the last minute that they haven't fulfilled their quota of me by the end of the year. And so they get me and under the wire, but I'm happy to be here. Yeah. It's been two years since we had you on MAC, power user. So I feel like we've really we. We're Snell this for too long, and I'm not traveling for the holidays this year at all. So it's super convenient for me because you know, I don't have to schedule around going away for a week or two. So that's nice. Well, we are having you on not. Just because it's the end of the year, and we're looking to fill our Jason Snell quota, but that is always a good reason to have you on the show. You know, I am winding down kind of my my gig here and David told me to go through and make a list of everybody that I wanted to have on the show, and they were unavailable. So I'm just kidding. That's what I said to David is. So those people turned you down. Well, okay, sure, I'll be on. No. But I have very fond memories. The I will tell you the first time. And I think I told us today that after after we recorded the show that I really thought that the MAC power users might be thing. And that we might have made it was after Jason style appeared on the show that was a that was a big deal for me. And all these years later to kind of be considered in the realm of a colleague with you on on relay has has been really one of the the the great highlights of of my podcasting career. So I I wanted to speak to you one more time before before I said goodbye. That's very kind of you to say it is an honor to be here. I guess I guess I I recorded with you in two thousand ten so it's been a long time as episode twenty nine while I will also say I have one little bit of of trivia, which is I now work in my garage. And I've I've put in a door to my house. So I don't have to go outside and there's carpet, and there's a space heater and all that. But the very first podcast I ever recorded in Mike Araj was an episode of MAC power users. So the this podcast will always hold a place in my heart. Because that was that podcast where I said, can I could I do that I work out in my garage. And that that I I was there was no furniture out here. I think I was in like a folding chair with a tripod for a microphone stand. But it totally worked. Now. I do every podcast. I do when I write all my articles and everything right here. So thank you for giving me a start. Yes. So we christened your garage for you. That's great did wonderful. I think. We need to get a back power user sticker. Jason's garage sometime. Somehow, I don't know he like this is the spot where it happened just send me one. And I'll stick it somewhere. I was going to thinking if he ever do one of those if I ever find myself in your house again, maybe you'll just find one is in the garage. You know, how it got there? I'm not sure, but I'll send you one of the I guess that's easier. Sure, we'll do that. All right. Well, Jason it has been a couple years since you've been on the show and one of the things that you've done you've written a lot about it over the last year. So is you went all in with the new I'm act pro. And we haven't had many guests that are that are driving one of those. And I really wanted to hear what you think about that thing. I I love it.

"Oh, hey, how you doing? Good. Talking about fast growing trees, and you mentioned the Texas ash that was. Is that the fast growing tree? But I didn't know saying it's a really low growing. Have you been seen it growing, really fast? Is that your experience? No, I think that it had a relative term. Yeah. That's right in the Brig Jampel our property in an Oak Hill is loaded with them. They're all over the place. They're they're naturally and over the last twenty years or so I've seen them increase in size rather dramatically. Maybe it's the watering that we do near them. Now that wasn't happening before whatever it is. They have increased inside nicely to the point that the canopy was so big we've had to have Bom Astor's opened it up a little bit more. Should we can get some light down there? And it's based on that experience. Then. Yes, I think so. Yeah. Handed out on the limestone. Rocky outcropping can imagine that it would be extremely slow, and that's the area where you work you understand best the countryside the landscapes out there. And so I'm sure your observation of something growing under other conditions is very different than the one in our neighborhood over there. So that's right. By now in south Boston. And so I have, you know, twice dry, clay soils. I'm not saying the same thing. Arrogating it either. And. Is a byproduct of VERA getting our other trees, which they're under. Okay. Great. Wonderful plant. Yeah. No, I love Texas like grow faster. Well, you know, how to get to grow faster, even though the natives don't need it as you feed them you put that com- pushed out there deliberately every year. At least in the fall, you put some out there twice a year would be great and the good slow release organic fertilizers going to push him a little bit not accelerate them to the point where they become more fragile. But. You'll doing that. Yeah. Yeah. It's just that. My clay soils are just really bad. Yeah. Bad dry ones. But in my backyard has Shumar Greta, okay. Yeah. Noticing that those grow fast in this hundred degree temperatures. They are they they start they shed all their leaves. And they're not happy in this under degree temperatures, easy to understand that one for sure. So if somebody was buying one of the Texas ash or any of the other trees, I would recommend micro Raja, you wanna ass trees growing and get them going really, well, accelerating that growth once again used them, Mike Araj at planting time so between the good. Watering that we do the micro Risa these things they grow vigorously. So depends on how you take care of them. Okay. Thanks, John just legitimate. Thank you very much. She really knows her native plants and has been doing landscaping and matter-of-fact landscape the courthouse over in Blanco. Let's see here in the hanging tree. Looked so good over there. James good morning. Welcome to KLBJ. Thank you. I called in. Doc about those squirrels over getting up in the tree is your hand the big tooth. I mean, the sabertooth, squirrel. Gesture. About twenty years ago. We were going to the Guadalupe county extension meetings. They were meeting out in the McConnell orchards, and they were giving classes on grafting that's about when they stopped as a matter of fact, twenty years ago or so. Unless we get together with a lot of it was it was great. A couple of growers. We went out to had similar to what we use on the purple Martin polls that keep the snakes out of the purple Martin as just a cylinder of of or aluminum or out knows exactly what kind of metal. It was a sleeve on those trees in that orchard. And they were having pretty good luck with that. Squirrels out of the tree. Yeah. Yeah. Interesting. So they were wrapping the trunk. You're saying with this metal was similar to what we use on the purple Martin. Of. It's called the predator taller pecan. It's much larger like a trash can. Well, yeah. Yeah. They were having pretty good luck with him, keeping the, squirrel. But. You know around the house if you've got any other trees that are close you're not gonna have any luck. But in an orchard situation, they were they were doing pretty good with it this grab one more time. So that we all get it. We're gonna take a break in a minute here. But describe what you just said. So that other folks like myself can understand the image of what it looks like on it? It's just a metal collar around the the tree. Oh, I know. I know what you're talking about. Now, something that if they jump on it it's slick and they can't climb up anymore. Exactly. Like, the ones we use on the Mark. Never having real good luck with well. Theralac with it. Yeah. Well, that's a good reminder because that is true. And that was recommended in the past. And I think it's still a good idea. And. That would be a good suggestion for people. I wouldn't nailed him up there. I would find a way to. Keep that metal up there without nailing into the tree. But that is true that they can't jump on that and climb any further. James? Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you very much hate to cut him off. But it should break time. We'll be right back. Michael Strahan, plus a little cruise ship dancer taking over social media. People are coming up to me and asking me for autographs. Having more awkward now Ellen today at three on NBC four imagine moving into a new home in hearing scratching screeching every night inside the walls, hundreds of that they just took over that. I had no idea warning signs..
