"Locked back there so true. All right. Well Yeah. So save some stories Matt. Know. But This is actually our first time interacting through voice I mean there's been some email exchanges but. So, you actually had a huge impact on the trajectory of our business. So you you had a podcast I believe it was one where Mike Dillard interviewed you and you guys talked about the concept of platform building build a big platform focused on building the platform, and then once you built it, then you can monetize by selling affiliate products or even taking equity and people's companies right and we heard that podcast I listened to the whole thing. I actually took notes on the podcast told. The podcast sent him my notes that I took on the podcast and that sort of shaped what we did with our business model we decided let's go and build a podcast. Let's build a huge audience once we have a huge audience, then we can go and leverage that audience into sort of rev share advisory deals, things like that into other companies, and that's literally what we've done over the last we've been in business together for thirteen years but. That's the last four years of our business is growing this podcast building the platform, and now we've actually got equity positions in two different software companies that has been pretty lucrative, and that was sort of something that that interview that you did with Mike. Dillard sort of drove us on that trajectory. That's great and my favorite part of this story is that you took legitimate notes because like every every cheesy webinars starts with my WanNa grab a pen and. On today's on today's lesson. Yeah. So the fact that you actually did makes me really happy that's great. I'm so glad that was impactful for them. So gladys been lucrative for A.

5 Rules For Creating a Podcast Title

"What's going on my friend? Welcome back welcome for the first time to the PODCAST domination show I'm lose as your host, and this episode is not going to be a long one, and quite frankly you probably see a lot of my episodes. More recently have been shorter episodes that are the ones that are the Solos and I'm GonNa keep it that way. I want to respect your time. Give you exactly what you need to be successful in podcasting and then I wanNA get out of your ear so today like I mentioned before. You'RE GONNA learn the five rules you have to follow, or you should follow to create amazing an amazing podcast title. Some of the reasons to back up as before we get into this about why I'm doing this topic now is because I've been getting this question. A lot on calls a lot of times I throughout this. Week's been a lot of calls of people who want to launch podcast and one of the big questions. It has like I. Don't know what how to name it or or I don't understand. What's the best practices for naming it, so? I figured I'd do a refresher on this. Of course in my program, the PODCAST launch formula we go into depth on this. I show you all the tools and tricks and tactics and cheech. You can use to really nail your name down, but today you're GonNa learn the five simple tools or five simple ways. Or rules. If I can speak today. That are GONNA help you really get a solid name so. Back or because of popular demand. We're doing this today, so let's dive into it so number one the the I. I. Guess Rule You'd want. You'd WANNA. Really really adhere to when you're thinking of a name is to avoid words that are hard to spell or words that are easily confused or words that that most people are GonNa have a hard time. Spelling think about the the the average person that's probably to your podcast. You have to understand what is their education level? If you're talking to doctors, and maybe it's okay to to use a little bit more technical advanced term, but if you're talking to. Most demographics I would say you're going to want to keep the words simple to smell to spell to smell. Sorry Sunday. But some tips here to avoid. our industry words so certain things that are like really really words that most people wouldn't understand you wanna be as clear as day with these title so number one avoid words are hard to spell words that are easily. GonNa get misspelled in in Google. Apple podcasts or wherever people are searching your podcast from that is going to be a big issue. If you are trying to make sure the name is very easy remember. To find in your podcast directory. So that's number. One number two is. Don't use your name. And it's okay to put like with so and so, but if you're gonNA, do it like the Mike. Dillard show like my dillard's can do that and other big personal brands can do that because they have a big name Bay of already established a name, but if you're someone new, maybe someone who's not so well known meaning like if you don't have a database of like fifty to one hundred thousand people. Even, then it's a hard sell I. We've had a lot of clients recently with bigger personal brands asked me this I name at the Xyz show and I've I've told them repeatedly. No, because unless you're getting tons of organic Google searches for your name like Neil Patel. For example, he's a guy who gets a lot of organic searches for his name. Neil Patel. Less, you're like that. You're getting thousands. Hundreds of thousands of of search impressions tens of thousands of search impressions month then it's going to be in your favor because. People are not going to know what your shows abouts. In you know in two to three seconds when they see that right I, see a lot of podcasts out there that I have no idea who the person is, and maybe just because I'm from the industry who knows, but it doesn't seem like they're big personal brand name, and they've got their name on the podcast and for me, that does know as a listener that that does no benefit for me like I really don't care about your name I just I just WanNa see if you can help me solve whatever it is. You're claiming solve right. people really don't care. UNLESS, you're Oprah Winfrey or someone big. We talking about before Neil Patel. It's going to be hard to to to get traction early on with that kind of positioning. Okay, so that's my advice. If you're someone who's not getting hundreds or tens of thousands of search, ranking or searches for your name already then it's that I'd say pick something else. Go with the name. That's more descriptive as to how you're going to solve the problem or how you going to help this person. Who's GonNa Listen Your podcasts. That's number two so recap number one. Don't use words that are hardest bell number two. Don't use your name unless you're a mega personal brand already. Number, three avoid hyphens apostrophes. Our ever you wherever you can We launched a show that had hyphen. In its recently and we were, we did a lot of thinking about this and the show went. Find got top top shows number two in its category, but we did a lot of thinking. What other what else could we do, so we finally decided. The name is easy enough that it doesn't really matter, but for most cases you're gonNA. Want to avoid hyphens posture fees because this is where. People if they forget that if they don't know, maybe they don't know if there's a the in front of like the podcast show like. If you notice, my show called, it just called PODCASTONE nation show. There's no the. In the actual title. And I did that on purpose. Because if you do have a than, it makes people sometimes forget it, so it gets into entire annoying mess that could mess with your search rankings and search results

"Or workout equipment. That is in your house or a trainer coming to house and I think that type of an industry is going to do very well over the next few years but anything that can be done digitally or locally versus going out and getting it. This is the final nail in the coffin of that. We're used to bind conveniently we are now going to have a micro brand around to that so my model has always been you pick an audience. You serve that audience. Even if it's three hundred to a thousand people you get those give those people exactly what they want. And you repeat the product launch process to that group of people and that is going to be more relevant now than ever because there are going to be more people online with more specific needs than they had before or specific desires than they had before so the options to create and release products that though the Lens just widened and people are now going to be looking for community meaning like online tribes more than ever. And we've both seen that when you have even a small audience that is really loyal and tribal. They buy over and over and over again. So we've just accelerated the pace that we were already on which was small brands. Giving way to these very very micro brands and now there's more demand for custom products or custom desires met via products and more desire to be a part of some sort of a small community. And if you marry those two things together with a very small following I mean literally three hundred thousand people and you give them a few products. That are exactly what that group wants. You can build a million dollar business even today. Yeah absolutely. Can you give us some examples of what that looks like from a physical product perspective? Obviously my audience I think is is well versed on the Digital Yearbook course kind of worlds but e commerce examples. I think would be unique. Yeah exactly So I have a student right now. Her name is Yasmin. I'm super proud of her. A Yasmine in has uh small blog that has been her side hustle for a couple years. And she's a mom and in her research as kind of a holistic minded person she's become really fascinated with the relationship between the Mothers Gut by Omb and the child's got by oems physically where it relates to skin issues is a very specific market so it is very specific blog of nursing MOMS. Who have kids with skin issues that you could be more specific than that so most people would look at? It will mommy blogs and have a kind of a wide range of products that that person might buy. Hers was really specific. She wanted to develop something that would help these nursing. Moms healed their kids skin issues so she developed a probiotic. That was really really specific. She said there was one. I don't know anything about the markets but there's one specific strain. That was really important to her. And most people at probiotics and say there's no money in probiotics because there's really competitive that those brands already have a foothold in the marketplace. They sell for like nine to twenty bucks but since hers was specific for this crowd she was able to come out three times higher than all of her competitors and her audience is buying it up and it was so funny we had. We had a coaching call. Maybe two weeks ago where it was like three weeks ago. I wasn't in business now. I am in business and I'm not a millionaire yet but I just had a successful launch and I helped her kind of come up the next route forward to go from one hundred sales to five hundred sales and we'll keep bankrolling that until it is a million dollar business so that's a really really specific one. I have another another group this Freeman. This is fresh in my mind. We had a coaching call. Two days ago it was as husband and wife team. They have three kids. They love to go like outdoors camping and they're sitting around the campfire and they are like you know it would be fun if we just had a outdoors camping brand and they don't have an audience in this. They don't have funding behind them. They just decided develop the products specifically for them. What do need when the go around the Campfire? They go and they developed brands specific for that. They now have several million dollar brands that they have built couple of which they have sold just by following kind of this overall methodology. Or if we look at Mike Dillard Mike Dillard has this really great responsive audience that I'm a part of that. All of us are listening to are a part of Mike. If you came out with the the lion of products that was the survival line like what are the things that you personally keep in your house in the event of Catastrophe. We've all seen your emails about that or heard you talk about it on the podcast. And since I have resonated with that. Mike has a brand. I want Mike's Brand. I don't WanNa go first of all. I'm not leaving my house to go to retail. I'm going to my email to click on the link that Mike is promoting. And I'm going to buy that but the magic of this is when you realize that you you don't need to have a Mike Dillard sized audience or list. You don't even need to have a blog. That was your side Hustle. For a long time. You need a few hundred people which is as big as your personal facebook friends list and if you have and we talk about ways to develop that audience and that responsive following but if you have a group of people in mind and you develop the product that is exactly what they want you become successful.

"Unique opportunity of sitting down with my personal physician. Dr Anne chippy. And it's GonNa fill you in on the supplements that she is taking and recommending to patients to help support their immune systems. And she's also going to give you a very unique view into what it is like being a doctor during a pandemic like this the two most dangerous places that I can think of right now when it comes to a risk of infection is a doctor's office and a hospital they are on the frontlines of this thing in and was incredibly generous to share. What little time. She has to record this interview for us now. Finally I've been teaching the importance of strategic preparedness for years. Just for times like this. The simple truth of the matter is that we do not know how long this is going to last or how bad it is going to get right now. People are expecting to stay at home for two weeks and I can tell you right now. That's not going to happen. You are going to be home for at least two months and you're going to start to see full cities being locked down here again. I would say within the next week. That's going to cause the economy to get significantly worse as a result. So if you have not prepared yourself and your family with shelf stable foods a large amount of supplements and a strategy to defend your home. I would highly recommend doing that right now. Once you have these necessities and place you'll be able to relax and focus on starting to grow a business because right now is counter-intuitively the perfect time to do that so to help you get started. My friend and former navy seal commander came over to the House and we produced some full lessons on how to prepare for times of crisis. I'm GonNa take you through all of my gear. Tell you what I bought. Give you a shopping list of everything that you need and you can also learn more about that at Mike Dillard help dot com all right so without further ado. Please help me welcome one of the real heroes of this crisis. Dr Chippy. Everybody Mike Dillard here and I am joined by one of my amazing physicians. Dr And shippy Anna. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks for having me as the such an important topic to be talking about today. Yeah so it is March fifteenth..

"State plan and asset protection and invest in multifamily the real estate and all of that good stuff and then obviously all of the business pieces in between and that'll be the primary way that i serve the newbies if you will people people who were just getting started and then after that i'm not really sure there's a big opportunity out there these days to help larger jour- more established businesses that are already doing at least seven or eight figures in revenue with some of the modern modern marketing techniques that we a us right and one of the biggest lessons that i've learned in the last few months is that it's easy to take what you know for granted and assume that everybody else already knows was it which is a very expensive assumption to make. I sent out an email to my audience. You you know who are in the the online marketing industry a few months ago and i just said hey how many of you have a twenty five business. That's making at least twenty five thousand dollars. There's a month and if you have that how many of these five online marketing techniques do you use and it was very basic. Stuff upsells split testing retargeting u._t._m. Codes in exit pops and i had i believe five hundred businesses respond that said yes for making at least he's twenty five thousand dollars a month and out of those five strategies which i assume anyone online is using eighty percent of them said they weren't wow and that just kind of points you in the direction of the low hanging fruit. If you want to go help them you know what to help them with well. It's not only that but but these are like people already in my on my marketing marketing audience already paying attention online marketing right so that means when i look at downtown austin eighty to ninety percent of the law firms the accounting firms and all of these other businesses and all of these other high rises are not using those <hes> so i see a really big opportunity there and <hes> that'll probably be where i turn my focus next once this <hes> mentoring program is only fully baked and available <hes> for people to to us so i like that that's just seems like a perfect progression and for your brand and then just you know the audience he built in the trust you built over the years the podcast i'm sure feeds all of that as well and young pounds that trust even i've been more yup yeah yeah so. That's that's where things are so. I think you've mentioned on on your show a few times in the past that you tend to lean more. You're introverted as opposed to extroverted and you know me and joe. There's two of us here. I'm very very introverted by comparison. Joe's pretty extroverted and i'm. I'm curious how that has affected your business. If i'm if this is even true you can you could tell me i'm wrong if i'm wrong but how has that affected your business you know it does do you struggle to do the whole networking and going to conferences and a lot of that kind of stuff because of the the introversion or how has that played out for your business you know being an introvert is great for online marketing because what we do typically requires us to sit in front of a computer for ten hours a day so uh-huh <hes> it fits me perfectly and what i like to do. I like to think i like to write. I like to create in that really requires just a lot of alone. Take time in quiet time a lot of the most successful internet marketers out. There are all ironically the same myers. There's breaks type. Which is i n t p. That's what i am paganism t._c._p. Frank arnesen. I n t p and there are a few others that you would recognize as well and so for some reason that personality type tends to to do well quite well in this industry at least when it comes was to writing..

"I've i started three software businesses and they've all ended up being that way so i would put a hard cap next time on on what i'm willing to invest in a new venture like that and i have to figure out a way to create it within that budget and that's it yeah so have have you. Have you found that you've always been something that has sort of a high tolerance for for spending money. It was the word investing for investing like are you somebody he was always had like a high pain tolerance for investing because you know when you when you say that you spend thirty thousand dollars to have somebody go and run like split tests for you and stuff. I wouldn't think most host digital entrepreneurs have the stomach to go even invest something like thirty thousand dollars so is that is that is that something that's always been part of you. You just kinda have balls else to do that. Kind of stuff or it's interesting. It's a blessing and a curse in the fact when it comes to the ability to make money the blessing is once you learn how to make money a centrally on demand it. It's clearly a blessing but it's also a curse because then you don't really appreciate it or you can take it for granted quite easily sure and so for me. I'm i'm just like okay. This is what it's gonna take to bring this dream to life. I do this correctly. It's kind to you know make back all of my money and more and i've just always had a large amount of belief in myself because of my previous track record and so i was willing to take to take those risks <hes> and it's just been a big lesson learned where if i could go back in time i would do very differently. I would do the budget. I would stick to that. I would save money me know in my my savings or whatever it may be. That's untouchable because for me. I didn't have that with these ventures. It was if i needed to sell my house to keep it going. That's what i would've done. Yeah yeah which again it has its benefits in its well. It's interesting because you said like with ever grow. You had this mission. You had this big thing in the world. You wanted to solve which i think so many people can relate to you and you know a lot of money in your effort and all that stuff mental space into it now with this new business seems a lot more lifestyle. <hes> you know in your <music> at this point in your life with what's happened throughout your years. How do you like build this or what is your mission now taken to mike dillard and all the different assets not have you might might primary skill and the value that i've been able to deliver over the last twenty years as an entrepreneur really is empowering new entrepreneurs with the knowledge and skills. They need to really start their first successful business. <hes> i've got dozens dozens and dozens of students. I don't know how many but at least five or six that have built multiple eight figure businesses just starting with my book <hes> <hes> dozens and dozens more who built million dollar businesses and i don't know. I don't know what the rest is. That lights me up in a really big way. When can i get a text or an instagram message from somebody that says hey off your staff. I built this changed my life. I was broken now. I'm making x amount of money ed. My family's financially free in debt like that is what i'm here to do so at the core of what i'm i'm doing moving forward. That's really at the heart of it. <hes> we're going to be taking the classes on the platform now moving those behind a paywall and i'm going to essentially be turning that into a year your long mentoring program where i'm going to drip out one of those classes per week in a very specific order where they're all length and take someone over the course twelve months from the very beginning of starting a business to the very end or you're you're dealing and learning how to set up a state.

"And we just picked arbitrarily nineteen dollars a month or ninety seven seven dollars a year for our pricing and that got you access to a new class every two weeks when we first started and the the interesting part was is that it really didn't take off. I had the entire one of the biggest mistakes i made as a had the entire platform coated with you know a great design company in california. They've done work for like porsche and lots of really big companies. They built a beautiful looking site that could could handle the skill share levels of traffic and millions of users which is what my vision for this would would become and that again turned into a huge money pit so at least half a million dollars in tech development at least another half million dollars in developing the content recording the content so i'm into to this thing for seven figures again and when we launched it by anyone's standards it was a success by my standards. It was not <hes> <hes> and the really challenging part was when you have a big platform like that. It's not a single funnel like that. You would create and click funnels or karcher dr or something like that. You don't really know what button to push or lever to tweak in order to increase conversion rates you. It's is kind of a big open architecture and you have to just start poking and twisting and testing things here testing things there and the challenges is when that software is proprietary is every single change has to be custom coded and rewritten tested and so i'd say hey let's let's try this workflow or this split tasks in bay sure that'll be two weeks three weeks thirty grand right <hes> uh and that was just the killer. That's what killed. The business is that it wasn't producing enough revenue because now we have the content production. We have the employees. We've got thirty k. A month fifty k. a month and tech development and at nineteen dollars a month in customer the value we needed tens of thousands of members which we did not get. I don't remember how many we started with in the beginning but it wasn't hundreds of thousands of dollars a month recurring revenue so that eventually just bled the the business dry because we couldn't split tests quick enough inefficiently enough in order to get the the flow optimized so that we could acquire customers profitably and what was really interesting is that about a year year and a half half later i found out that creative lives laid off half of their employees thirty five hundred people wow and they had all you know skill share share and creative lives <unk> thirty to forty million dollars in venture capitals a creative live over seventy million dollars and so it really wasn't working out as i assumed that it was for any yeah so that was that was it and a year ago a couple of months after we launched i had a kind of a medical emergency if you will went through a brain injury that i'm still recovering from and and over the past year i really haven't been able to work or create anything. I haven't launched any new products for the most part. I had to let the tech team go and so the platform is just kind of sitting there and going through the health challenge that that i've gone through it. It just gave me a new perspective and new drive in the fact that my primary incentive is no longer building one hundred million dollar business. Having a hundred million dollar exit is it when you're facing the fact that you might not be around much longer like none of that shit actually matters. I'm just going to focus because on getting better and i'm gonna do what i really enjoy in. What's made the biggest impact for others that that i've been able to make and that was is really just being myself and teaching and telling stories and doing what i know how to do best in us. That's where i decided to transfer. <hes> <hes> self-made man to mike dillard dot com get back to my personal brand and have really just gotten rid of these grandiose entrepreneurial dreams now that i'm forty one on yeah getting back to stuff that really matters in yeah.

"So so i wanted to fix that and i've never grown anything before i didn't know anything about producing a technical piece of hardware or technology and i just started google i i went to i went to amazon and bought five books on hydroponics. I went to google and i started typing in industrial design nine firms. Yeah i went to a desk and i had someone make a kind of a photoshop render of the concept that i had in my head so oh i bought a stock photo of a kitchen grabbed a photo of voss water bottle gave it to the photo designer and i said put the voss water bottle in the kitchen itchen. Take the logo off fill the middle with plants and the like a bright light on the top with my logo on it and that was the image that i used when when i started just cold calling industrial design firms and saying hey i want to build a fully automated hydroponic system for the home here's kind of a concept image of it is is this something you can help me do and eventually found a company called whip saw in silicon valley that said yes they had designed a lot of really high tech great-looking looking tech products like the drop cam and a bunch of others that look like they're out of apple. Basically which is what i was going for us like i want this to look like apple made. It and i wanted to look like a piece of art in your home. So self made man was the other the other idea that came out of the tony robbins event. I ended up going with ever grow the hydroponic system and i can keep going down that road and how it did not work out i can i i self made man where where would you guys like. I know you had an episode. I believe of self made man now called the mike dillard show which we'll talk about in a few minutes but didn't you have an episode that broke down pretty well what happened with that and why you decided to phase that out moving a different direction because if that's the case we into link up to that podcast and make sure people listen to that yeah you know you can go to ever grow dot com or you can go to youtube channel and there's about a twenty five minute video. Oh that i did with the system that went through the whole story so it's sitting next to me in my living room and i go from beginning to end on the the intro that you guys just heard and then why i had to end up abandoning the project two and a half years later after you know well into the seven figure investment mark yeah that'll take people through the whole story from start to finish and after growth did not work out as planned a self made man was my backup and i had been holding the are hosting the podcast since the launch ever herb the beginning.

This is all great stuff technologies incredibly fascinating. And I think it will probably change the world. But when it comes to trying to buy specific coins?

I mean, this world's become Chartres. Right. And I just want to say for the record. Like, I said to you today. I would love to be wrong about this. I would love nothing more than to see cryptocurrencies succeed non-governmental cryptocurrencies. I just don't think you're going to have Arkansas trip those doing since it's decentralizing thins, adding the quantity to every facet class and freedom of movement for that money value to to be moved around..

"But turnabout my skepticism when you ready, but so I disagree with absolutely nothing. You just said, but but what you're describing is basically the internet as a platform versus buying the like, I can't buy the internet. I could buy companies, but I can't go by the internet, and I'm not gonna try to buy the internet. And and all right. So what I'm hearing. You say is described the platform, which is great. But to the measurements of that platform. Like, the currencies created on that platform to me are all valueless, no companies that up some sort of utility built upon the blockchain great, but but to buy individual coins, ultimately all value is going to come back to a measurement in US dollars. I will lose. So. So here's so here's. Bitcoin specifically has a ton of guy. But I think as far as security than any currency again. It's the it's the freedom of movement, and it's the privacy. And it's the fact that can't be counterfeited or or inflated away. How is that intrinsic value because the dollars being away every single day? You're losing value every single day that will be dollars. Okay. Well, I know he's right. But here, you know, be I'll be I'll take a counterpoint. Now. You're absolutely right. Of course, the differences, though, the dollar has a standing army and a lot of aircraft carriers nuclear missiles, be sure, you know, and in a huge brand called America like that until it's abuse. Which would which was in two thousand eight men wish it will continue to be it's been abused since this of Federal Reserve writing. It's ninety six percent of value. And now, we're seeing Venezuela leave Russia levers in China. Divers why from the dollar is the standard measurement? Really concerned about. Well, it's it's just it's one other. Right where the dam dollars days of being the gophers prince numbered and well bitcoin be the replacement. No, but digital currencies. Well, if you take one of the companies that I'm an investor in which is basis, so they're creating a dollar pegged stable coin that is based on algorithm. So it's decentralized based on real and just kind of like, bitcoin, there's no central point of control. But the value is also tied to global basket of physical goods and commodities. And so the algorithm changes the circulating supply the basis point in real time to keep it pen to the dollar. So if starts to go down in value, great, they'll print mortem bring it back up to a dollar for goes above a dollar. They'll Bart burn some in leave it there. The incredible part about it is because it is decentralized snow central point of control. Government that has a bit that then can go out to third world countries in Africa and in South America in countries like them as well and give the people now option to transact in US dollars. 'cause it's pig to the dollar in a completely decentralize way. The government cannot stop in the phone. Okay. So may I like I completely see that sales pitch. I think it's awesome. And I think of any cryptocurrency that's the one because you know, but the the that currency will win the day when it has a contract with the Federal Reserve and the US government, right? Because here's the thing. Like, even though everything is it is true. They can't stop it. It's decent. For wise is just it's just, you know, binary code, right? That's all it is. But the they can still make it illegal any crypto currency is competition for governments major product. What is the government's major? Products through currency, its the dollar. It's the end the euro, you know, an in there. I don't think they're going to stand by let that happen. You know, like you'll see? So I've asked that question to a lot of you know, what are they saying? Our friend Kamal his pretty deep into space. Is one of and he and. He's like this topic is moving so fast that the people in Washington only became aware of it Kim rate link tutors ago. Well, of course.

Pay out the claim sure as you put now we're getting super technical year. But that's how I am mitigating. The risk of not having my money deployed and buying things on the way down at the right price. See months stiffness assume of the Wall Street thing over the Wall Street's, you know, the modern version of organized crime, right, but taking that out of the equation. There were so many incredibly smart people with incredibly calibrated computers and software systems. I just don't think I can beat them. But that's that's traders. That's traders thing where you're like John Carrere, Wall Street, or whatever you were Ryan's not doing that. He's buying companies.

You are a long term investor, and I'm the same thing with businesses and companies. So I'm buying cash. I'm buying on P es on I'm buying. 'cause there there's good fundamentals there. You brought up a using question. I'd like to post a Mike, which is other any other any are there any sectors? Or are there any is there any major debt crisis?

Would you explain why that's important? I've heard you bring that up that's a common indicator. Yeah. So why why why does that matter the two hundred allergy its strongest it's the strongest moving average because it's got the longest period of history behind momentum behind it. Right.

"So we talked about how we might make some predictions to renar interesting chat today, and I wanna just mention a couple of things number one year absentee rate that there is a Wall Street economy. There is a main street economy, and they are very different. You know, there are financial assets in their real assets. In what the said, that's interesting. I talked about this a lot of my show is that the day before Mike, you know, most people consider the great recession beginning with the fall of Leman brothers. Okay. Tenure just over ten years ago and the day before Leeman fell or whatever you consider the great recession to have begun. Right. The day before that you looked around the world and everything had everything was there. Right. All the real estate. Was there? All gold. Was there all the silver? Was there all the companies were there all the copper was there every commodity earth? Was there the day after that when the recession started and even at its worst point all those assets were still there. Well, set the only thing that destroys them is war. Right. Mike was looting earlier. So the real wealth is still there. But it definitely changes hands the title of that wealth definitely moves around a lot. And that's what everybody listening wants to protect themselves from and so one of the things I would say is own real assets. Financial assets are much more volatile in one reason they're much more volatile will number one. They're not real and number two there. Easily tradable when things are easily tradable value change, very quickly cemented the cryptocurrency markets, obviously in the stock market real assets. That are they have a lot more friction to the trade. They don't move with so much volatility, and I'm a real estate fan, right? It has a lot of friction to trade it high cost trading a slow process of trading that kind of thing. So you can you have a little more time to react. Whereas if you're investing in a.

"That's the context of drum operating one distinction to ask you guys when you see the market is going claps. I believe you're referring to the stock market. Of course that's into related, but. Isn't that what you mean? Especially on. Oh, gosh. What's the book? The four. The Guinness Book record. It's the the four cycles of of the human species in Connie's all total come to the fourth her for thirty four hundred eighty straddles. The other. The other the other strands. So so read that book, right? And you look at the cycles that history has gone through it really kind of prints out the blueprint, and what was fascinating about that book is that it was written and believe in the mid ninety s and they said the fourth turning for the western civilization. The United States is gonna take place around two thousand five to two thousand fifteen two thousand eighteen and it's going to be precipitated by Nicole collapse. So these guys are ten to fifteen years beforehand predicted it basically down to the year. They went way back history two thousand. And the the interesting part about that concerns me the most with were at today is that in the book going back through hundreds of years every fourth turning the winter season the time where everything is blown up that are the happens physically where there's a global conflict that's been associated with every single fourth turn. And so they said the last the last word turning lives around the World War Two will remember these at new decades about eight every eight years. And it's always resulted in some kind of conflict without exception. And this is the first fourth turning that will be entering into which started in two thousand seven of that will involve nuclear weapons, and so what I find really interesting concerning us now what's going on with China and with the United States with Russia than how Europe's how becoming splintered NATO's becomes third and read the height entering the height years. The final years of the fourth turn in and you see all of this shit happening. That's talked about in their book. They wrote that's like that's like the secularized version of the bible predicting. Yeah. Yeah. Find any book and say, well, this has a pattern of prediction is. And this is the first trim that Obama's president or or that this is happening or the Middle East with a turban with blue star Or or something. something. Yeah. Yeah. You can make that relation with works. Great. I mean, it really is a fascinating book. I didn't fully comprehend it. I think it's there's just a lot there. It's just a lie. I just got the primary history repeats, and and you know, going back there's a track record of this happening. So if you're looking for out of so that you can make prediction and make ideally a good decision about something. And that's all you have to go by then the patterns day invite and share, you know, pretty serious. Well, Jason to your point. I think there's definitely a difference between markets and a commies markets. Whether it's the stock market, I'm saying, like financial markets asset classes, and they're all different, obviously. But they're also all over valued. And if we look at in terms of comparison to cashflows, and that is you can have a market peak or market valley without it being a recession immune recession is pace of growth for. Or or negative GDP hours? Yeah. Yeah. So so I am of the opinion that markets are way overvalued because of things being propped up because of things being bailed out. We haven't had that correction, but economic fundamentals are fairly sound. So you might have a slowdown or even a recession. But I don't think work in a rebuilding of society or rebuilding of the economy, even close to what we had in two thousand eight or or nineteen thirty one..

"Just the way we are at since. You're the host. What are you? All right. So so I can't say the diversity. Our you can see what economic diversity. Oh, hey, everybody. Welcome to. But we have no idea what we're calling it show with three dude and three vastly contrary opinions about what's happening in the markets. We we don't know. I we're not sure I thought we agree with each other. And that was going to be everything's great economy, and nothing is going to go terribly wrong in the next while what's up, Mike to be your brother. Did you see the White House and all these amazing people hosted here the last couple of days? It's been okay place. Yeah. What's up? Jason hartman. Yeah. Hey, thanks, Ryan. This has been an awesome little mastermind retire. You put together and your lake house is gorgeous in we are in the crow's nest room, which is the super cool room where we can see in every direction will wanna hang a six second overview on out, your not your perspective, but your background and investing in sure. So I've been real estate investor for many many reasons of his twenty years old, and I teach people how to invest in real estate in real famous for two years. Yes. Two years due to actually nine years. I didn't want to tell you that. But. And I'm really interested in big macro trans I really studied the big macro things. I don't watch the market day-to-day day. I don't think about you know, technical stuff like that. I just like the macro trend side of things. So I think that might be than Mike. I don't know. Mike your perspective. What's the context, you're looking at the economy? You know, it's it's been interesting to to see where we are today, which is where we are in two thousand eight and I'm of the opinion that we're going to see the pretty big decline here fairly soon. I don't know how big it's going to be and on one hand. I don't really care that much compared to last time because I'm not in the market at all. All of my best meets are in my companies or other people's companies startups or crypto, and but it's interesting to see repeating because I see a lot of the same stuff starting to happen and same conversations and same fears in questions being asked. And so it's been interesting to watch that light you you've call a lot of trends. And it's always good for click bait when say the man who called. The man who called the silver boom, now predicts economic collapse. You know? I mean, my my opinion of it is that. What should have happened in two thousand eight and the system getting cleaned up and the fraudulent activities or the bad investments in the bad money being perched out of the system wasn't. And instead it was bailed out. And so now, I think we're we've seen the biggest bubble US equity history. And we just saw the biggest bubble in crypto vistory year ago. Ago. This the same way you see next financial record breaking up. There's only one way it's going to go into question is when and. Again, I don't have a big personal vested interest in in when it happens right now. So I'm not too worried about it for people. We do, you know called my mom last week. I was like have you had a conversation with your adviser about the market, and what their contingency plan is for your portfolio? Do they outsell stops in place or his their answer? I don't worry about it. And if that's the case in property disturbed making small phone calls. I said the same thing to my family well at thanksgiving. Yeah. So my background is in traditional economics. As Harry studied economics in school, and in college when anything that may pastor that didn't happen story for another day. But I I left with business and economics degree, but I come from the black sheep school of economics, which is the Austrian school economics, which they're pretty much. I think the market's gonna collapsed all the time. And I'm I'm not that angry and resentful as that Kyle. Kind of school of thought. But I studied I actually by senior paper was on the correlations between the two thousand eight collapse and the the great depression, and I don't think it's two thousand eight all over again. But I think we're at the top of the current economic cycle..

"There are some girls who are interested are actually sick of every other guy was just trying to be like the cookie cutter, cool guy. So for me, it was a remarkably positive experience. I, I was very shy. I couldn't tell a good story. I, I had just no idea what it was like to be a woman in a dating situation. Like I didn't know what their concerns were. I didn't know what their goals were. I didn't know how they perceive things that I might do just had, you know, had no idea swimming in the dark. So for me, it was a really valuable experience. It, you know, changed my relationship with women change my relationship with my friends with my family married now. I, I'm certain. I wouldn't be married or you know if it wasn't for pickup or at least not to an amazing woman, like married to now. See for me. It was for me and my friends, it was really positive experience. I have seen people that I think have sort of perverted it in and or views it for, you know, ends that I don't personally think our ends that I would use it for, but you can probably be said about most things. Now, what about self publishing? I remember listening to your interview on Noah, kagins podcast, and you talking about your yourself publishing, I realize like, oh, you have been self publishing books on kindle for like ten years now, which demos have been like just as that was becoming available, how did you get into that? And was that anything that you resisted at all? Because I think you know a lot of people, they think I'm gonna write a book. I better go find a publisher. I the opposite. I mean, I had like such aversion to red tape in interference that like I mean, I've been, I've had a publisher contact me and so I got on the phone with them. And I like after one conversation, like there's no way I'm doing this. What was what happened in that conversation. A lot of it was they were running through the numbers with me and you know, my interpretation of it was like, I'm going to do the same work. I do now. You're gonna have some same what I do, and then you're gonna take some of the money like, and even the way they were like they were pushing it with sort of like, oh, it's like a prestige thing. Like if you have like a, you know, a book publisher and like somebody's trying to sell me something as prestige thing. Like instantly I don't wanna do it. You know, it's like if that's the value of this is that I'm gonna have some like it's like when when when the blogging company I started called set folded, I had like a pretty big blogging platform contact us. And they like wanted to buy it for nothing, you know? Because then you can spin it as this acquisition like, like, give me a break. I have no interest in, you know? And so, yeah, like it seemed like probably I would make more money just doing it myself. I would have all the control and they were like they were like really wanted. They were like, you know, like, do you ever do speaking things? Because that's like a great way to sell books. And I'm like, like they've got this agenda. I don't want to be part of this. And so you started publishing things on kindle and two thousand. Anything was your first book? Was that was that like when it was just I available? How did that begin? Yeah, I mean, actually publish even before that. I think like two thousand four, two thousand five with create space on the printing on demands. Paperback. I did that before kindles, and I just had a friend who I had. I was approved gamble for a lot of years. It sort of ended suddenly didn't know what I was going to do next. And I had this friend who is a successful actually. He's Austin's guiding Mike Dillard like successful marketing guy by up.
