Fresh update on "missouri" discussed on Worst Shaving Podcast Ever
"I mean with the amount the sheer amount of things that i would like to do. This year I honestly i wouldn't discount it Especially with me being up in missouri. Probably as often. I will be because i used to before. Twenty twenty would be going up to silver dollar city branson on a regular basis And i know that you're a couple of hours away. Saint louis a couple hours from branson But still you know. I totally think. I've almost run into Riley a few times. At least once. When i was down there we were both in the same way. Just never actually saw each other So i'm sure you know whether it's you know us just meeting in in missouri or maybe who knows. Ob be some sort of shave. That i can go to this year that we can both go and hang out and just chill or who knows. Descend we need to make that happen. I agree sooner sooner rather than later. I agree a hundred percent agree. Because i'm ready to get out and hanging out amongst you know my friends and again it's it's funny because you've lived a totally different life last year than i have my job unfortunately or fortunately i look at. It has not allowed me to work from home. Unfortunately i can't fix things remotely so over the last year. I haven't been able to really change anything. I've worked every day in now. If people's apartments the only thing that changes wearing a mask and you know being extra diligent. I've always been a germaphobe clean about not touching myself at my face and make sure my hands are clean. But you know. I've never let that bother me. And when restaurants were open. I was eating in restaurants. And you know other than the masks stuff. I've pretty much lived a normal life. All based on the restrictions of what saint louis or wherever. I was then posed but other than that. I pretty much haven't been stopped and you will have been the complete opposite. I would say the majority of the people that i've talked to like co workers and stuff like that are all kind of like still do a lot of the same normals. Two hundred wearing a mask. Now or maybe. I don't go do it as often as i did. But a lot of the people in my immediate circle at work have just been living life as normal and for the longest time. We were doing it only to protect ourselves. But you know tiffs mom is immune compromised and they still wanted to see her. You know while maintaining social distancing and stuff and if they were exposing themselves to other people or not taking the necessary precautions they would not feel safe enough.

Head Coach Eli Drinkwitz on Missouri Tigers' Past Season
"It seems like yesterday that we were talking. And i thought i think people agreed your season run very well. You may not have gotten quite the one the winds that you were hoping for but if we could look back for a second what did you take away from from twenty. Yeah you know. I think we exceeded expectations. I think there was a lot of people when we saw this. C- schedule all sec. Schedule come out with what we were dealing with the ncaa sanctions and all that stuff You know the to finish five and five in the league i think we exceeded the expectation But we didn't meet the standard obviously moving forward The goal of this program is to compete for the sec. Nobody plays Football to play for second. And we're in a really good division a really tough division. And i know you know at the top of that georgia and florida but We gotta make room for our self in the sec. And that's why i'm here They didn't bring me here to play for six or seven. We're we're here to try to play first in. So that's that's really the the standard This past year. Like i said we exceeded expectations. I think we're finished To to pick last or second to last in our division we finished third Finished six in the sec but We got to continue to improve. We're not going to get there. You know in one major step we got continue to take it one bite at a time and in bringing in coach wilkes on the defense side of the ball continue improve on the offensive side of the ball become more explosive score more touchdowns in the red zone. Be better than situational football. If we can make those steps. I think we can put ourselves in a position to contend you know if you look at the halftime scores against the two teams. The two top teams in the sec. It's twenty one to fourteen against georgia And then we didn't show up in the second half in florida we. We had a turnover right before half time to make it twenty two seven And we didn't show up in the second half we got gotta be a team that shows up in the second half and if we can do that and then we can make our place in the sec.
Howard Hughes: A Successful Mystery From Birth
"Howard hughes was born in one thousand nine hundred five. Perhaps on christmas eve although that seems their documents say different things but we'll say christmas eve in humble texas which is kind of ironic for a man who was anything but humble or houston texas. It sounds like i think it was used because one of the mysteries of his life is that his birth certificate was never found and it was only when he in world war two came around that his aunts had verifies to win. It was born and where the first place so to. This is just typical of a man who lived his whole life with mystery. They don't even have the real birth certificate for that is pretty fascinating in and of itself a man who would ultimately come to be a mysterious figure in so many ways an only child to parents who really didn't have much to start with but whose father and this is just interesting. You know when you think about what's nature and what's nurture that's a big question in the life of howard hughes in that. His father had nothing but his father who was originally from missouri discovered. Or let you say. Designed built a drill bet to drill oil with current and it revolutionize the oil industry because prior to the invention of this drill bit conventional drills. Were basically destroyed when they hit extremely hard rock formations so this particular drill devised a way to go through those formations and in fact it developed at fascinating name. It will feels people called it. The rock eater. Because that's exactly what it did it revolutionize the oil industry and ultimately made howard hughes senior hearts father fabulously wealthy and that was actually the basis of his sons origin. What's also fascinating in terms of. What do you take away from your parents and learn or what has to do with you. Know nate intelligence but he not only built this thing in revolutionized the industry but he chose to a patent it and be rented not sell it. Which really was instrumental in not only making his fortune but keeping his fortune in the sense that ultimately people were always dependent on renting these pieces. No one else could make these pieces. And so this became really for life in many ways a source of howard hughes juniors money

We're talking about a very fragile ecosystem as it is. We're talking about spawning beds for brown trout and rainbow and cutthroat and greyling being affected and then a community that's really supported by the health of a river system ranching community and a fly fishing unity. The organization helped delay to proposals to lease more than ten thousand acres of public land for oil and gas development near the big hole. River felon says the goal is not only to protect the fish but to protect the livelihoods that depend on fresh clean water in southern montana.
The Guy Who Did Everything Wrong But Still Figured it Out with David Pere
"Paret welcome to the bigger pockets. Money podcasts. I i talk to you today. Thanks for having me on the show. Mindy scott always a pleasure. Yeah we it's always a pleasure for scott and you're just for being on the show that was that was like a comma scott calm like always a pleasure for both of you. Okay okay probably a bad use of commas. I'm big fan of the comma. Anyway david paret is a career marine corps officer and heat. I learned about the term fire from our very own got trenched and brandon turner some schmuck who hosts another one of our podcast for bigger pockets and he learned about it in the most five way. Possible on a hike in hawaii. Why were you in hawaii david. I was stationed out there. Okay okay so. I was there for business business. Let's do some air quotes around that business although as ceo. I guess it's really convenient to go out to talk to brandon hop on clay instead of just hopping on zoom. Anyway david paret. Where does your journey with money. Begin first off for those listening. I have to correct you. I listed i am. I am not fancy and i actually say that with a badge of honor because i think that actually makes for anyone listening to this who's military that actually makes this way more Powerful because. I'm just an enlisted schmuck. So everyone thank you for correcting me. Please germany correct me. I really wanna try learning all of this military suffered. I'm just wrong all the time so sorry about that. Are you an enlisted officer or just Just an enlisted marine. He's an enlisted marine. Okay now tell us your money story. Are you on board with us using the term semper fi to describe your journey absolutely. That's an accurate statement or disrespectful to the phrase semper fi. No no it's motto. It means always faithful. So oh okay. Tell somebody already david. My money story starts off in all those same places that most service members do terrible right. I joined the marine corps in two thousand and eight. I had super frugal parents. Who did all the right things. Even to envelope budgeting. They taught me all the things you're supposed to do. Bought the off brand stuff to save money. And then i joined the marine corps. It was my first real salary. I went to japan. And i was like. Oh my god. I got money and i blew it on everything i went to a on even went on a deployment tax exempt pay. I came home with seventeen thousand dollars. And i bought a truck a rifles and tattoos a bunch of alcohol and probably took some people out on dates and have nothing to show for any of so. I did Terrible things you know by the time i was. I would have been two thousand thirteen to fourteen. When i i mean i probably had an a negative net worth and somebody handed me the book. Rich dad poor dad because they were trying to get me into Amway ride in helped me sell stuff on the side. And i remember telling the guy like no joke i was just like i don't read like you know like i'm a marine. We don't read books which is not entirely true but And he pulled a cd like out of his pocket and was like wow. I've got a cd. And i know you drive a lot on recruiting duty. So plug this in. And listen to it and i listened to it originally with the intent of like well. He called my bluff final. I'll listen to the stupid book. And then within three months. I had bought a duplex and things just started. Roll like i. I listened to that book i like. Oh wow this is cool. I downloaded audible. Listen to a couple other purple library books and then i was googling. Every time i didn't understand they just go to google. And then i stumbled upon bigger pockets and then the book on rental property investing in the book on no and low money down and then like right in the same timeframe someone got really drunk and parked on top of my harley and so they totalled my harley but they didn't want to he owned a car dealership so he didn't want he didn't wanted on insurance so he just paid me cash and then i took it to the viewership and they paid me for it and so i basically got the original price. I'd put into this bike at the same time. Like looking for a duplex and use an fha loan bought a duplex lived in one half rented the other half and then things just kind of scaled from there. So at this point. You're sitting there. And you're just becoming aware of wealth-building concept in general and it doesn't two thousand fourteen. You have basically no wealthier debt at all at that point. Yes so i guess. By the time. I read this book. It was actually probably october of two thousand fifteen. I had a little bit of debt. I mean maybe maybe a few thousand in credit card debt in an auto loan. But i didn't have. I probably didn't have a thousand dollars in the checking account so i only had you know i probably only had like a negative three or four thousand five thousand dollars net worth so. It wasn't like terrible but it was definitely nothing to show for it at all. But you were contributing to your tsp right a little bit. I had done the minimum like eight to ten percent. But what i had done. And this is the There's there's different funds right. When i first joined your money went into the fund which is government backed securities which is in perspective. I've been putting eight to ten percent. Mit because someone told me to. But between two thousand eight and two thousand fifteen. I left it in a fund that essentially earned two. Maybe three percent interest never lost money but it earned two percent interest while the rest of the stock market was earning twenty thirty percent returns coming out of the two thousand and eight recession and i just ate it so i could have way more money in their if i just know where to put it or what more money in. So it wasn't until two thousand fifteen that i really cranked up and started putting twenty thirty Last year sixty percent at one point in my in my thrift savings plan. Okay so this was not a meaningful part of your position at the time when this all started right now i probably had five grand. Dsp ray how much cash did you have at the time as well. If i hadn't totalled my or had my harley totaled basically none. I was pretty much living paycheck to paycheck. How does a harley jump. Start one's cash position. I i don't really. I don't have a perspective on. This is a motorcycle worth eight. Grand is it worth fifteen twenty. Twenty-five i i have no clue. No no no not that much. I probably got probably like eighty five hundred out of totaling. It wasn't super expensive harley and it was a few years old i've probably got about eighty five hundred but i was living missouri which is super affordable and then i was able to use the fha loans. I got into this house for like four grant. I think it was thirty. Eight hundred bucks. So you're stationed in missouri and you buy a duplex and can you walk us through kind of how the housing allowance and all that kind of stuff works for those who are not familiar with military benefits just so we can get a a total picture of your position at this. Starting point. pleasant fifteen yeah. I i think in springfield. My housing allowance was like eight hundred and fifty dollars a month and the housing allowances tax exempt. So it's you don't pay any taxes but actually counts as a little bit more As far as debt to income goes towards your lender. I think it's like one point two five times. Whatever your housing allowance cost when you go to buy. But at the time i was living in an apartment and there's like five fifty a month for a two bed one bath apartment and my lease was coming up on and do so. I was able to get into this place. I bought the duplex for eighty. One thousand my mortgage was six fifteen and there was attended one side for four seventy five Market rent was like five fifty. So i was like okay. Well this could. this could work nothing else. I'm going to be paying one hundred and whatever that math is one hundred forty dollars a month out of pocket for the mortgage as opposed to the five fifty. I was paying on rent. And i probably should've used the. Va loan on that but nobody knows anything about the va. Loan and the lender actually told me not to because he told me quote unquote you can only use it once which is wrong air so much confusion around the va loan. I hope that somebody someday we'll sit down with a really great lender and talk all about the. Va loan and if they have already it would be awesome to link to that in the show notes because the va loan is only applicable to who service members veterans Some federal employees but generally just service members and veterans. Okay so that's not necessarily all of our audience. But i think it's really important to note that you can use it more than once you can use it a lot more than once. You can use it as many times as you want. There's some stipulations there. Because you have to renew the eligibility and after two or three times it gets kind of kind of convoluted but you can the first time you can use it. There's no limit on it anymore. So you can go and buy. There's a guy. I don't wanna knock on wood right now. There's a guy under contract on a triplex for one point. Six million dollars in the bay area right now that we're we're helping and he's going to basically move into this thing zero down and he's high income earner out of the military veteran and in the medical field so he's got a good day but he's gonna pay zero down get like two and a quarter two and a half percent interest on this thing and his tenants are essentially going to pay the mortgage and then he's going to be on the hook for maintenance repairs.

Spectrums of the easiest example, you get a bill on your hand you look at it and you know it went up but it didn't go up enough for you to spend energy again on the phone stay on hold figure out happened. So you kind of look at it your way at the you pay it, and then over time that becomes the new normal. So if you think about that multiplied over distance that's starting price creep. So we look in, we continue to manage that. So that your we're not going because I paid other difference right right by save. So areas like telecommunications. Waste Management everything to do with recycling regular hazard, medical exit shredding exits ability we help. UPS AND FEDEX Mine. Too Awfully and they're they're they're tough to deal with but anything small parcel shipping. So we'll see recently has been just going crazy in that shipping world. Yeah. a vehicle tracking device, the L. The. credit card processing whenever I mentioned that most people think I'm a broker and it's very important that I do not represent the services. I just get under the hood and remove fees, monthly charges, rates, etc.. And then the most interesting one besides utilities. Were kind of in a semi regulated market blizzard has e signature. Docu signs there might be twelve companies do this, but there happens to be one brand that people know. Sure. So Based on cove it there've been a lot of people who have now skit contract signed electronically in that industry. Say a cottage industries exploded shears. We've found create success navigating counts like that. Awesome. And so. When we're looking at. My bills for my business and I want you to help me and I started thinking to myself all on a second. I'll do it myself. Can I do it is that or is that something that you guys have gotten done in the science tells more about that? No, it's a great question fact I get that question a lot in one of the considerations people use are wife got somebody that does this or I've been real good at it and most of the time quite frankly people are great people I found. Diligent IT professionals really get another business and what I tell them often is that take you taken most of the meat off I'm just going to boil the rest, but but the magic is how do that first of all get software configurations that are able to analyze the pricing modules and look at contracts but more importantly than that, I'll give you an example we of knowing pricing we've written over twenty, two, thousand pricing agreements. So I know generally speaking when everybody's paying right. So a quick example is I'm working with a sixty five store burger, king chain franchise and They had just completed their analysis in thought we were to go back with no savings. At the same time we we we. Started an alignment with a Wendy's franchise out South Carolina. Foul figured out that these guys are with waste. Management. The. Folks in South Carolina with republic. and. Being able to visually see those prices. We're GONNA take that knowledge back to here in double their savings. So some an and that's a very real example of how it happened to me within the last year. So a lot of times it's knowing exactly what to ask for and where the pricing lies and because they're not going to tell you right nobody's going to tell you where the opportunities are. Well yes. Hey you. Here, see my and. Our Bill. So. WHAT'S A. What's a big enough company for you to help? Are you looking for franchises or can mom-and-pop? Can they save fifty bucks a month? What are you looking for? So obviously I in theory of of spend just from a business perspective I'm looking for Margaret, you know midsized companies however, I help almost anybody who is interested in saving money I've got a two-man Gulf shop park feel okay to to a multi national manufacturer and I do the same work for everybody because quite frankly Each of those experiences help us continue to hold our skills and get better. So frankly I am a small business person and I like small businesses so I would I would recommend that. If if anybody's thinking about. Just. conceptually looking at, it might be an opportunity to least. What's the best way for them to get a hold of you are the best way is email. Okay. Darren Dot Morris at school Mitchell Dot Com.

Nine thousand years yet for cuss control him and I took over together in two thousand twelve. Yes. But it's been all. Yeah.

Work of the chamber does a lot of. The pest control work they here is exceptional. Again, live want them to be. Part of what we do with podcast. Really appreciate what you do. Let's jump right into. A little bit about Your Business. Well. First, let's a little bit about. This business talk about how you ended up in this seat. And it was being business yeah. This and. Let's talk about something that was good about that being the case maybe something a little more challenging for you how you overcame. Okay. So family business and my husband's grandfather started the company in. Nineteen. Seventy. And after a few years transferred to own my father Ma bought it right wally reenact it for decades. worked part-time initially while he were TWA and then eventually transferred over to enough to purple time. GIG. So he quit TWA and he started prefer pest control full-time gouge now is probably mid to late seventies when he did that and so he operated a full-time for years after that Gush and two, thousand twelve, he got sick. was diagnosed with cancer and so that time periodic had my husband period and decide if he was going to kind of continue down the corporate path, he had gone with a company had been with for a number of year. If, he would come back and jump back into pest control of news teenager Europe that out so. Ultimately. You decided to quit his safe secure job right and with all the benefits and all that good stuff and jump in and take over the family business of users. Yeah it's a very. So. That was spring of two, thousand twelve when he did that and then I joined him later that fall hired simply homeless the same time. And so what had happened that summer bedbugs became a thing. I haven't been thing for fifty years longer. So they became a thing. And Wally. It always done very niche pest control of Termite Treatments League. Well, he did a few other things but ninety percent of his jobs for termite treatments. About that same time housing market was doing separate termite treatments are not as plentiful as they had been in the past. Perry decided to pivot that business and take care of more pest control than just termite. So He wants to something university and learn how to do good thug treatments can get rid of them and started. Adding bedbugs in with the termites, and then eventually that just lead to any and every kind of insect. So. Now variety of things so I came onboard always helped out with his dad. Tax Time to get all the stuff radio. Welcome accumulate all. In all those twelve I started in fulltime answering the phones for them and doing. Office work. So we didn't have a website at the time. So that was one of the first things we did get a website so. Some of the benefits of jumping in the way that we did. that. Wall area had a great reputation around town road had a great reputation around town, and so we already had big clientele especially in the real estate world lots of realtors title companies insurance. Mortgage Company uses has the things we have great relationships them already graduate. So some of the challenges of Iran into. You know that was while he's baby for years. You know he took it from no termite work built this really great. Career in company I'll have one type of bug for the most part. It was great for him. So when I come in with all this new energy and ideas of what we WANNA do. He's just like, whoa. Why fitting broke don't fix it. So. Period. I never wanted to be the ones where I was answering the phone all day and he was out killing the bugs all day we always ourselves more on an ownership capacity. We always wanted a team of people to work with. And we just saw bigger things for it. So we have a habit a lot. Like to buy houses and flip them because we could see potential. You don't see potential in a lot of things. Like you always have the energy in the capacity and now all their along. Tying. there. Sorry. Cool. Things it can be done. In my I want to do that but. He really do. So Let's talk a little bit about how you help not just help here and staff because ensure that can be. It's challenge. Making happen in longevity and. People just want to work for two weeks to WHO Have your of employment challenges for show and makes you think sometimes. Maybe, it would have just been good to be the person answering the phone and him being the guy. Killed The by. As. You add the more people you add to your team the bigger your customer base gets the more problems issues concerns come up challenges. Got You have to grow with your business right this a pretty even ratio that was good. Oh, this game with yeah. Yeah. That is all questions I have for today.

"Stops. Yes. The paperwork is not what we're here to improve so right. It's the whole model is the issue it starts from the ad what is the ads about your job? All right. And and again, this is just one piece of improving retention cuz that's really what we're about. We're retention company that focuses mostly on training and the onboarding part. So right off I would say if you had an audited your process in a while and if you're the one in charge of it, I would encourage you to have somebody else go through it. Yes give you your feedback. That's probably step one off. You have to go that route if we're going and observe. That's fine. But people know that people know. Yeah, we've seen this so many times now that I can easily pick out. This is a sustainable that's not sustainable. This could be damaging. This is an object to improve. It's usually nothing terrorist going on. There's just so many opportunities to improve the experience and aren't being done. Right and they're little little things gotcha. And so once you come in and You observe the process and you start to lie not videos and we get all this done as far as how people go through that process off. How do you figure out the track for each each one? Yeah. So we look at the job. They'll be doing okay what training they need to do that job effectively and we look at their current process and not recommend. Here's what we think the order should be and and sometimes will say this should be this section should be eliminated and and and taught off. At their third day of employment gosh not necessary for day one and you want to make sure you're going to keep them. Right? So let's move this today three, right? Let me move something else to this 7 off of the best new hire processes take more than a day. Right? Certainly.

"Today with Sarah Morgan. Hi. Thanks for having somebody that really having a beer with smart architecture and design. I'm just so we're here. What's the address is 619 Francis Street in St. Joseph. You've driven by it so many times absolutely and I think writing here I just recently got my graphics on the window. So now everybody can find me. You know, where I am. I'm going to try to help her be found in just a little bit more. Absolutely. I agree with that and Sarah's been here about a year-and-a-half about a year about a year little over a year. Okay, and we're going to get into kind of what you heard architecture in the first place. We're going to give her three wishes and then we'll hopefully long have you guys stop by and visit with her in the near future. You know, what roundabout why it said open space. Where you working for somebody else Branch out on your own kind of thing. Yeah. So the log Stories along the background stories and I wanted to be an architect since I was eight. Okay. This is always other than you know, the childhood dreams of ballerina and how we're all that sort of thing. But this is always what I wanted to do Google. Yep. Yeah. And yeah when I didn't take dance classes that ballerina not going to make it happen, but like I was interested in architecture my parents were re-doing and bought a house here in town and then I lived in the gifted program where and we studied some things about historic buildings downtown. Sure. So between the two I got introduced to it and somewhere in there. I don't know exactly how it happened but it always kind of golf so I got interested in me an architect and that's always what I wanted to do. I would sit and bought a house plans at home trying to get you draw the Playhouse plans of the TV shows that I saw on T was really never worked. But at the time that you were probably growing up with all that. Yeah, there were some software than things but they weren't that good. No, no and everything was still probably hand drafting it that way when I was little so and I wouldn't have known you know about boy, but I had a drafting board that I think I managed a steal from my brother and had big draft page and I still have all my plans at home, but it still looking at house plans. Actually, I would just pour through those so I went through all the way through school without intention went to KU for my education. Okay. I got my Bachelor's of architecture degree there and then came out. I was very very fortunate to have started interning while I was in college with River Bluff box was in town for a while. We're sure and I I got that intern position and one of the parking Summers and Christmases, they're okay for a couple of years and then I've got a job right out of college wage. There and wanted working on for 20 years not quite I was about a month or two. Shy twenty years actually. Yeah, I use it. It's kind of weird because I know a lot of people bounced around and go to different places, but they were very good to me. I learned a lot there. I got to experience a lot and really get hands-on experience and many many different facets of what we do is Architects off on different types of projects. So I was very happy. We kind of got to a point where the owner was wanting to look at retiring completely give up the business and so long and just in talking with him as like, I think this is a really good opportunity for me to try my own hand of this. I am at an age where really mean to try it now versus back later when I'm looking at what I want to do for retirement sure for at least preparing Marshall. Oh, right, but I thought you know, this is a really good chance for me to try this on my own. And see how it goes and I've been working long enough in town and a lot of the contractors know me and is trying to get on you went to Texas. Right? Right. Exactly. So I went I knew a lot of the contract may have lots of relationships with people in science. And so I thought well, this is a really good opportunity for me to try this and so I have loved it. I mean it's a whole new and different world of stress with trying to manage business and do the architecture side. They really don't teach you about that part in architecture school, which is funny because there's a large number of Architects that going a little practice for themselves, but they don't really do a whole lot of that part don't think it's just oh, yeah. No. Yeah. I talked to somebody today. It was like yeah, we've been doing this for years and never advertised. Yeah, we don't have a website and I'm like, how do you do that? I'm like what's happening? But some people don't want to grow. Yeah, and they're okay with it. Yeah. Yep. Was me away, but that's why people to broadcasters even fine with gross. So they are excited about doing things again because I always took about a hundred percent. If you're working at a hundred percent, you're doing things really well. Yeah drawing it a hug pills. I want to give 110% why there's somebody else that will do 10% off a lot cheaper than your times worth. Yeah, and and you will not be stressed out. Yeah, there's only so much and it's just me my office managers here part time. So she keeps track of that sort of thing and keeps me from losing my mind on the paper website and stuff, which is really good. I don't have that business background some of that we're learning together, but it's really not a good thing to have always said that 110 high maybe a little bit right now the last year so so it was about April March April first when I went out on my own last year and honestly, I've been very birth. Fortunate so far. I've had calls from some contractors. They throw me some work know different people that have heard about me from other folks. So there's some Word of Mouth going on and really I haven't had advertised. Okay, but that said I would like to make sure that there's always that back of my mind where I'm thinking. I really need to make sure I'm getting out and talking to people and trying to get that evening while things are good. Right? Yes when you're when you are in trouble. Yeah, you're trying to do the advertising. Yeah. It really comes across. Yeah. Yeah. Well, that's the one I am desperate. Yeah. No and I don't want to be at that point, Right? So I'd like to I want make sure that I'm keeping word out there what I'm doing what I can do for people gotcha. It's really been fun though. I love it. I love my office space. It's been fun getting it set up and still a little bit of a working progress. But the architect's office maybe never die. I don't know. I don't think everybody but but your your topic right off I was actually leading me into my first question. I thought perhaps being because I I like to give people three wishes sure on the show. And the first wish is what do you wish somebody new coming in before they even talked to you before they talked me and actually I've talked to some clients about this page don't have to wait until they have a project laid out before they call me. I've talked with a couple of people now where it's more of a planning issue how helpful would yeah so so off for example looking at their existing building, like I know that there's probably some way that we can rearrange this or do something with the space to make it work better. I need better usage of this area, right but don't know what to do with it. I don't know if I need an addition. I don't know if I need to just renovate. I don't know what I need so I can come in and talk to them at that point while we're still evaluating options and birth. What they actually have in their space sometimes just getting it on paper and looking at it from bird's eye view and say oh gosh, that's not that's way more space that we need in this room that right. There's not near enough around here. How can we shift some things around and create a project that's more doable for them and make sure it's going to work within their budget right or help create a budget Bush and sometimes it's maybe a phasing issue say, okay, we're going to renovate this area first right, but then we know that we need to maybe add on later on. Oh I can have it but I thought would say that's probably one of the biggest things and I've been trying to talk people about that so they know that it's not just something that they have to have that project in hand before they can call me. I am happy to go on and look it off a space and see if that's something you might be workable for what they want. Right? I talked to a.

"I didn't start out even playing music until I was sixteen. I had a older brother younger sister that both in the music. Yeah, I wanted to do Sports and so naturally one who ended up in the world music but home, so yeah 16 I started playing guitar really fell in love with it ended up going on studying music at Missouri Western. Okay, and so just had a real passion for music and got a job through the animals give and guitar lessons and then worked in doing part-time sales and from there just you know did a little bit of everything. Yeah and eventually was working forty hours a week telling and part in part. It's Parts. I'm driving a long time. I tell people wanted to do is play the guitar and make music and then now dead. I don't have a whole lot of time to conclude that because yeah busy running a business but my stage we're right here inside of Atlanta music right. Now. This is a new ignition. Yes. Okay. And when do you guys utilize the space? This basically actually started it about probably two weeks before we had to shut down and the idea of going to the right page. So the idea with it was that we were going to do group lessons and things like that. And so like everybody we've had to make adjustments and off on the fly. But while we were sit down and at least they have a project to complete employees to you know, build saves the wall. They went in the lighting and the speaker system and everything and give you time to do that. Yeah, we have that time to get in here sir. We got the to complete it turned out really nice and because so many of our friends that are off. Performing musicians, they don't have any replay right. So we just sort of inviting a musician and every Friday we close at 6, and we have them come in a liquid or six live streaming through our Facebook page. So it was just a nice thing. We could utilize the space. We didn't get to have Rock camping here. That's a big enough room that we can fit at least a handful of people do on the like the 15 to 20 that we were hoping. No. No, usually yeah, basically we'll get to and it's here. Yeah. Yeah, let's here. We are home to utilize it also for doing group from distant learning less. Yes. So one of my employees he studied to be a band director of he plays multiple instruments really well and and he enjoys instructing. So we're in the process of figuring out all the details like the kids who aren't going to be doing school. And this year cuz they're on all we want to try to do that humor. I think mine. So without a band and being able to do that in school. I think you touched me off. Yeah, I hope so. Yeah, and I'm like, yeah give those kids the opportunity to keep making music when they're at home. So yeah, I mean, it's a what a time to do it, right? We're not run around and we're not doing group things. How many other things are in the schoolyard group things, right? And so now I think it's it's awesome. So let's take a little break down of all first of all where we're at address. 2401 North Belt Highway you passive many a times. Yes. Most people I use ice cream shop. We have you guys three. Yeah. We're just north of that on the opposite side of the Bell right across backwards flooring right Anchorage has been there a long time too. So Facebook page. Yes, ma'am. Play the music play the music that usually good age slanted music.com or website. You and on the website. We're able to order things online as well right now. He's actually constructing a new site. So it'll be much better websites So currently as of this week There's not abide on there, but people can at least see what I have in stock could call it can cause yes, so, yeah, we did the curbside pickup all that while we were shut down. So people utilize the site, but hopefully it goes so. I mean, I figure it out. Yeah, I appreciate that. What is the phone number phone number is 816-233-5142. Awesome. Are you ready for your first which first with the early evening at 3? If you could wish for people to know something about this business and what you what you need them to know before they got here you can go when you wish they need before they walked in the door off if this qualifies as an answer, I people seem to be surprised when they find out the different things that we offer. Okay. So I guess I'm a timer city of what we do here. Yes, a lot of times people think of us as a guitar store or just like guitar and drums and but beyond that when you the lessons really rent band instruments, okay, we have a really good sized rental program for being an orchestra gotcha. So that's a big part of business and then audio and video systems. We install those for churches and schools. So you tear the surprise ya know that I get. No, it's good dog. Other than this, how are you telling people about those things? Is that is what website rebuild this for? Is that what how else are you pushing those things out there Thursday? I mean some of it we do a lot of that through our website Facebook page. We we do direct mailers also. Okay, we've done different things. We're home email directly into the churches that will come in and do a pre-assessment fix any kind of buzzing noises or just do it one hour free service, And so yeah most of the time it's Bill. He knows something about audio Yeah, he goes to church there and he'll take care of it. Right? I mean that's people appreciate that cuz they'll kind of money to do those things right but for you to come in there and help them figure out what they need for their free for an hour. I think that's awesome. Yeah. Yeah it just builds up relationship dead. They realize what we have to offer and that we're capable. So yeah, it works out. Well the second which is I mean you didn't build this we probably take us with us. But if there was a place you could move to ideally here there was a different place or there's something else you can do to this building what time you wish physically you can do to make your business better. I wish we have more space really really. Okay. Yeah, I wish the venue space was bigger. Yeah, I mean this is really nice. But I think there's lots of room to stand and we seem a little bit cramped with our storage like I mentioned our band and Orchestra rental program. I've already had to take over one of our lesson rooms with Charles in a 4 available is and cellos gotcha. So I think the biggest thing I'm real happy with where we are on the Belt Highway happy with the.
