Crazy. <Speech_Male> Freedom is currently <Speech_Male> ranked at 93 <Speech_Male> in the world, so it hasn't <Speech_Male> shown that much form recently. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Music_Male> shutler did say <Speech_Music_Male> that they were gelling well. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> And I <Speech_Male> had to laugh, wouldn't it? I <Speech_Male> had to laugh at you <Speech_Male> when you said that because <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> I was just like, <Speech_Music_Male> I don't care how much <Speech_Music_Male> practice they've had <Speech_Music_Male> really <Speech_Music_Male> played any tennis <Speech_Music_Male> together. So the <Speech_Music_Male> fact that they were able <Speech_Music_Male> to competitively <Speech_Music_Male> start. Yeah, <Speech_Male> it was, and, <Speech_Male> you know, they <Speech_Male> lost <Speech_Male> free summer Nemo <Speech_Male> lost that, that first <Speech_Music_Male> set, but really kind of grew <Speech_Male> into it in the second <Speech_Music_Male> set. They were <Speech_Male> getting confident <Speech_Male> and they <Speech_Music_Male> nicked <Speech_Male> the tiebreak in <Speech_Male> the second set. And <Speech_Male> yeah, <Speech_Male> it was, you know, <Speech_Male> I think if you're <Speech_Male> a Czech father <Speech_Male> in the crowd, which <Speech_Male> there were quite a few of them, it <Speech_Male> was very good atmosphere. <Speech_Male> You know, there were moments <Speech_Male> when it was <Speech_Male> quite quiet, you know? <Speech_Male> They felt like, you know, potentially <Speech_Male> that they were going to <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> for their first time. It was going <Speech_Male> to potentially end in a <Speech_Male> surprise defeat, <Speech_Male> but they managed <Speech_Male> to snatch victory <Speech_Music_Male> <SpeakerChange> ten 8 <Speech_Music_Male> in the third <Speech_Music_Male> in the third <Speech_Music_Male> set tiebreak, which is <Speech_Music_Male> not a comfortable first <Speech_Music_Male> round for the Jack <Speech_Music_Male> fans I imagine. <Speech_Music_Male> No, not at all. <Speech_Music_Male> But <Speech_Music_Male> I'd say. <Speech_Male> Yeah, I mean, ten 8 <Speech_Music_Male> in the third <Speech_Music_Male> in the third <Speech_Music_Male> set tiebreak, which is <Speech_Music_Male> not a comfortable first <Speech_Music_Male> round for the Jack <Speech_Music_Male> fans I imagine. <Speech_Music_Male> No, not at all. <Speech_Music_Male> But <Speech_Music_Male> I'd say. <Speech_Male> Yeah, I mean, yeah, exactly. <Speech_Music_Male> Definitely one of the <Speech_Music_Male> favorites up there with <Speech_Music_Male> Russia, but <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> yeah, <Speech_Male> they just managed to <Speech_Male> scrape through. I mean, <Speech_Male> it'll be interesting to see <Speech_Male> how whether <Speech_Male> rubbers <Speech_Male> comes into it because this <Speech_Male> is going to be <Speech_Male> a very tight group. <Speech_Male> And they will be very happy, <Speech_Male> I think, to have <Speech_Male> come through a very, <Speech_Male> very tough team. <Speech_Male> And I think <Speech_Male> massive credit Roscoe <Speech_Male> to Germany because I <Speech_Music_Male> think we were saying, <Speech_Music_Male> I was <Speech_Music_Male> saying certainly, I thought that was <Speech_Music_Male> a one person team <Speech_Music_Male> in Angelique <Speech_Male> Kerber. <Speech_Male> Yes, yes, <Speech_Male> petkovic in her day <Speech_Male> was a very good, <Speech_Male> but you certainly <Speech_Music_Male> felt that a lot of <Speech_Music_Male> was resting on Kerber. And I <Speech_Male> think yeah, it should just be <Speech_Male> a bit, I guess a bit disappointed <Speech_Male> the team weren't able to <Speech_Male> get it done, but <Speech_Male> again, some <Speech_Male> incredible performances <Speech_Male> and the fact that it went <Speech_Male> on so late, <Speech_Male> just <SpeakerChange> shows how <Speech_Male> competitive it was. <Speech_Male> Exactly. And <Speech_Male> I think that it's great that Kerber <Speech_Male> was even here. I <Speech_Male> think it's clear that <Speech_Male> the team needed her. <Speech_Male> She really loves me. <Speech_Male> Fans love her. <Speech_Male> Yeah, and she's not playing <Speech_Male> here in great memories <Speech_Male> playing the <Speech_Music_Male> final in 2016 <Speech_Male> was it?

"Indoors and all or most of the people are cheering for you so these opposite fears will be imprinted in my memory forever and yet not too. Many tennis players get to experience that sort of atmosphere especially with their team as well with your countrymen. And what is the secret to use serbians. Having such great players. I spoke yesterday with a friend of mine on the same subject. I don't have an answer for you. Fob you i. Don't i know that it's not because of the system that we haven't Blaming the country the tennis federation florence Because we are not serbia as not tennis nation. We're talking about history right. Not not right now so all of this has happened in the last few years happened by chance or their. I saved by accident. Because in the turbulent times of serbia or yugoslavia serbia-montenegro there was no structure. You couldn't say that there was a structure with a strong federation that brought up all these great bliss. Everybody found their own way. And i'm so happy. That the younger generation coming now with the ocean and philippe and las learn. All these guys niemeyer which i fifty right. Now they are. I don't want to say looking up to the generation before them But thinking oh if this guy can be top twenty. Why can't i be tough with kind of like positive. Jealousy reciting say no. I think you guys are very have a very positive mental attitude fortitude. Probably the best word that you just belief and the strength is just comes across. You can see and you also. He's a really nice from me attracting with tennis players all over the world like most to serbian guys have. I've interacted with them. All like you know they replied. Say hello and the semi videos. I can't say the same for all players but for you guys have been really nice to me into functional tennis being your own hospitality at your straightening open last year to novak last year. Giving us nice words at roland-garros onto dustin send us video masters and various things. So i just gotta say you guys are really nice as a whole thank you first of all. You're doing a tremendous job that's either way. Say that's why we are nice. But i can speak for all the guys if you're not doing a great job I don't think i would be on. I just believe in your channel. I believe in your instagram. That's why i'm on the second part. Is i think it's a cultural thing untainted. All of the serbian people are like this but this first generation of mana than vista no election myself. I consider us very personally close and therefore you translate that kind of behavior to the younger generations and adapted really really nice. You'll low this as well as i do. You don't have a lot of data. Sculptor separations in davis cup players. Which are so tight outside of the core so once this is happening we kind of feed off each other and i personally re looked at. It's very clear it's such a great characteristic. Have so well done on that and well done on you guys this senior guys transfer and that the younger guys like you talk about no real tennis history there so for you like you were your world number one junior. You won the open junior. Just give me a little background headed you get to that stage of tennis. I had if i can draw one thing from a younger south. I had a very good working attitude. So i used to train a lot at the very very young age unused to practice. I believe already for the age of fourteen like twice a day plus doing fitness. I had a very good and straits. Russian coach which was bushing me to become the best version of myself and i was just good. I don't know what to say. I was world number-one under fourteen sixteen and eighteen and then the translation through the senior tour didn't really go as planned but my junior career was to say really really good. I imagined that main difference was because i was really working hard at the very very young age. Okay we do hear a lot about the juniors now if the guy who tries hard normally weigh in because they just cave in so easy so i can see our data can help you get so far but you must have had extra. Y'all see had the game on a lot more than that. We talked about difficulties. Entrant the senior tour. What makes it so difficult for juniors entering the senior tour for juniors like myself which had a great junior career being number one in every category over the years you are. I like to say young and dumb euro teenagers. So you build up an attitude you build up this eagle or superego with his completely unnecessary and damaging to your career in the beginning of your senior. Atp courier at now wise that in the very beginning in these few years. You're use winning. You win you win win..

"Niemeyer's doctor, Woody Myers, clearly gained ground as well on Dr Grey Doctor Buddy Myers gained ground. About five points in some change was 25% back in April. 30% today and maybe we've got about 30% today. In September, we got about 45 days and some change to go before Election Day. Can Woody Myers Ah, pull it out. I think that's the question of the day, right? I think, you know, I think Don rainwater's performance here in this if it's remained steady all the way through Election day. I think that gives you no this Democratic challenger a real chance that something on Lee think point behind. Of course, I know they're there 10% of voters here in the survey who are undecided and they do lean towards Trump, so I think it's Perhaps a little bit less likely and told them to find a vote for a Democrat over. You know, a Republican or a libertarian, but they're definitely still is a chance here for Dr Woody Myers to pull something at the back. I think it was closer than it was in April for sure. Now, here's something else. My friend I thought was interesting. Eric O'Quinn. April was 45 points. Now he's 16 now 36. So basically down nine. But those looks like those nine points all went Tio Donald Rainwater, and he also been down the rain. What Also, the libertarian can also picked up some of the undecideds. I think that's generally right. Yes, OK, I just want to make sure I was looking at the looking out the right thing. Our guest today is out. Now Watson is with change research. Those folks been great stuff. There's in Poland for my website. Any politics, So I got Alex on line today is going to talking about the results in the mythology and everything. Alex of the race for Attorney General Tag Akita versus Jonathan Weinzapfel Todd Mosquito 49 Jonathan Weinzapfel 30 for undecided 18 eyes that seem to be pretty standard forward Indiana race. I think that I think it's about in line with what I would expect with something like this. I think we see lower vote share for one's apple here, 35% of the vote and I think I have about 13% undecided here After we we asked, initially undecided voters to candidate if they would. I think the final results are 51% okita. 35% winds apple and 13% Not sure you know the Democratic candidate here. I think white that is under performing the top of the ballot a little bit. I think if you look at their ability so generally unknown You know, 49 45 days out from Election Day, but I think there's a chance that your friend the consolidate Democrats here who may not necessarily know what's going on in that race quite yet. All right, well, let's move over to sort of the issues and topics and one thing I thought was interesting, but no one seems happy with the covert 19 respond with the federal state. City County government does a little bit better. 43 40 schools Not so great. The federal government 40 53 to state government 41 49 are folks just upset about Kovar 19. Are they mad? Or is it just the nature of an online survey sampler? How would it look like folks there? Jenny? Only mad adore. You know, we look, although I think the question here is, you know why are they mad? You know, if we look at school, for example, you know, you mentioned that folks were negative about him about how schools were handling the pandemic. We actually if you just look at the clothes and the question, you know, voters look agreed on something for once In the survey, right, 40% to 46% of Republican of Democrats of Independent they'll disapprove. How local schools are handling the pandemic I need the real question is are they agreed on why they disapprove. Are we looking at a very divided electorate here with very drastically different world views? You know, we have I get taking this back to the governor's race. You know, we have a Democratic challenger Dr Woody Myers, going after Governor Holcomb for a week. Past mandate. That's too little too late. For that, you know, wasn't wasn't early enough in the pandemic to really slow things down. On the other side. We have Republican voters who are clearly unhappy with how you know that map made of infringing on their on their sort of civil liberties. I think this is there are. There are certain points that voters here look like they agree on when you asked, you know, do they approve of how the pandemic being handled or disapprove, But I think the underlying attitude but very different. And it's also institute my friend, because once you're looking at that mass mandate well, who's it looks like they're pretty much split 40% approve of exiting the mass mandate while 36% disapprove. Yeah, that's right. 40% strongly approve in 36% strongly disapprove. If you add in people with a somewhat approve or somewhat disapprove, it comes out to about 53% approved so majority actually do approve of extending the math mandate on 47% disapprove. So I think what we're talking about is actually a very vocal minority, but very vocal and Who was strongly disapproves. You know how things are going here. You know they're voting for Trump at the top the ballot. They're voting for the Republican candidate in another race, but they are upset with how this state is handling things. All right. Another thing to my friend, Also one. That's this question as well. Do you approve of Ah, no excuse absentee balloting because that's a big issue we've had here in Indiana right now about Milan voting and what? You gotta have a reason to do it or should never reason 53% of people disapproved off. No excuse Absentee ballot Only 44% approved. What does that tell you? Or does it just Say anything. I mean, I think it tells me that you know, we're seeing this conversation here. Play out someone later, Howard thing that play out here on the country, right? There's definitely a huge part of gap on this. We have Democrats who over only support you. No, no excuse absentee ballots. We have Republicans on the other side, who almost overwhelmingly support means that like 89% opposed No Q. 20 voting and independence in the middle. Well, we getting kind of flipped that they leaned toward the Republicans here about 40% support at no excuse, but 52% said they had no teeth thousands of dollars..

The two teams are, I should say two games. They're not being played in Major league baseball as well. But the Rockies and Diamondbacks after talking is teams individually and then together. Decided they are going to play tonight. Like most of the MLB is and Mike the Rockies hope to continue what's been a good series so far in Phoenix. Couple of Goodwin's After that seven game losing streak, Jack no doubt and last night Nolan are notto got somethings together on the road that was good to see a pair of R B I doubles and airman Mark is wasn't nearly what he can be. But he's still battled three runs allowed in five innings and gave the Rockies a chance to pull it out at the end, and Iraqis will hope that John Grey, who's had a tough go of Wait, will bounce back tonight and give them the kind of start that he's capable of delivering been a tough go of for John and in Phoenix. Hey, has not fared well there, but you know what? I think he still feels confident that he can pitch. He did not have a great outing last timeout. Let's hope he can reverse that trend.

"Thomas, Doug Niemeyer. Att Master Control. The Rockies had their winning streak of three games halted yesterday. Pretty strong performance by Justice Sheffield And the string of lefties continues. Robby Ray will pitch tonight for Arizona. That means four straight games with lefties. Getting the start saw one in each of the three games in Seattle, but they won the Siri's and that's a big positive, Jack. They've played five Siri's of the Rockies. They've won all five And they'll go after the left hander Ray who's been tinkering with some things with the delivery, and he said some mixed results are really struggled a little bit early this year, but Rocky's have lost 44 times this year, giving up five runs in those games, so they've been in every game. Iraqis will have their multi All Star third baseman Nolan are Renato back in the lineup will keep an eye on how Nolan works to refine the groove. He's been struggling. There's no doubt about it over his last 14 but Anybody knows Nolan? He's been working hard and he's been grinding away. And I would imagine that Nolan's ready to bust out for sure the Rockies will have John Grey on the Hill is John looks to come up with his first victory of the season.

"And so. You Got Position Your Year business new career in a way that you can work less still make more but have more time for those that you love and doing things that you love together. Absolutely. All right. So before we get to our final four, which we do with every person that I interview. Is there anything else that you want to make sure that are. Here something that we haven't covered or that we need to reemphasize. I would just say if you're if you're on the fence at all about do I live. Live, out my faith in a stronger way or do I kind of keep it. Keep it kinda hidden kind of compartmentalize like a lot of guys can do? Right? We can -partment is a lot of stuff which is so. Damaging to so much of who we are is go all in if you're on that side of just drop onto this right side. The Fastest Greener where you fertilize it, and so the phrase your face, right fertilize that area where you want to grow because it's going to do so much in terms of your your marriage terms of your connection with your kid does and and of course, business relationships and all else. There's a way to do that. There's a way to have more freedom to to talk about who you are talk about what you believe in a way that doesn't come across as to church e or to you know whatever fill in the blank. But away authentic to you and I think if you're living authentically again, such an. Authentic deceitful kind of world. You'RE GONNA BE YOU'RE GONNA stand out. You can be attractive in a lot of ways, and that's going to help define a life of significance for for you and for your family. Absolutely. All right. So. Now we're going to get to our final four. Just four four quick questions is tell me the first thing that pops in your head. Okay. All right. So question number one. Why did.
"niemeyer" Discussed on Relationships & Revenue
"Okay things are better and ended up being okay but. That's just that's just real. Did like that's you read Old Testament stuff gets messy and bloody, and that's just part of. This faith journey the that were on and it's relationships man they are missy. That's why I, say there a risk, but they're worth it. Art and it's sounds like what you did for yourself and this is something I've done for myself with my kids. There's been times and I've told my kids I'm doing this like. I am so angry with you right now I'm putting myself in a timeout. That's pretty much what it was. Yeah. I mean, I, and of course, you know the first few times you do that they just look at you like. You. Like Yep, it's like trust me. It's much better for you if I'm in a timeout right now. I'm going to do that. All right. So. Chris. This whole idea about face and how it's not a segment of your life it is. It's synonymous with you. How How do you? Share that with others in a way that is winsome. That they're going to say. There's something. About Chris I can't put my finger on and thinking specifically when you're in business circles. Something about him, there's something different I'm not sure what it is. Have First of all have you had anybody say that to you and if you have. How did you answer that? Before I. Get there. Let me let me give another illustration or a store that happened right as this probably happened to a lot a lot of other families but you know you get to maybe it's a at a restaurant or some kind of public setting and and some strangers are often a distance maybe just observing. You your family and your kids and and. Hey guys grace's sufficient, right so sometimes, sometimes they they're acting grade and just kind of that. All American goes right. Of course, there are times when I'm kidding my my kid is actually really awesome but but there are times when you know the stranger might come up and say, Hey, I don't know you know what you guys are dealing, but your kids are so well behaved we just kinda watching from a distance there and men, Kudos, you guys whatever you're doing keep it up. It's easy to say. Thank you right. But we've tried to to lean into that and take that as an opportunity. To say. Thank you. Gosh. parakeets tough. We're trying our best and we could not do it without Jesus in our life and he is the one in guides us everything we do is through the truth that we know is found in him and that US sometimes they'll either stop conversation or it'll open up more conversation usually. But. That's just a a way that that we've found. You know people are observing you like you said, they're observing something. Different something's maybe attractive because faith should be. If, you're really living it out you and business situations. It's been similar where you go. Hey, Chris, I've been. Following you from a distance online and west and mutual connections I wanNA connect and got I've just seen you. Play through and you're whatever social media feed her I had a podcast for a while there. Tell me more about just kind of your your. Life right and and so it's an opportunity to say, well, everything I do is through my faith lintz. I don't always talk about Jesus I. Don't always talk about the Bible what I do, but I do talk about truth because truth does not return void and..

"Long before. Yup So. Just a little bit of perspective they're probably is helpful. I'll oh, I would mention one other thing. I'm doing a solo episode related to faith and I know I've recorded already. So I mentioned it in there, but I'm GONNA mention it here having a physical Bible is a great thing and if you don't know what Kinda get you feel free to reach out to me, you can reach out to Chris to and ask him what he likes to use. One of my favorite translations happens to be ESPN, which is the English Standard version. It's very easy to understand. But. Beyond that if you guys are anything like me now, if you're listening that, you can't see this. But watching the video I'm holding up my phone. That's my iphone There is an APP I use every day on their. It's called the version, Bible APP and the APP store opened for Apple. It was one of the I two hundred apps they ever came out that particular APP has been downloaded over four hundred million individually different times meaning different devices. It's been downloaded at time and there's lots of different translations on their. One of the cool things is you can have it in your car and you can play it to tell you. It will start talking to you in read it back to you, which is something that I've done with my kids before. And on top of that, there's also these these reading plans that can help you if you're struggling with something right now, if you've got some anger issues going on there are. At least five different ones off top of my head I. Know that are fantastic that you could go through the help you work through things like. Anger or worry or. If you're trying to work on having a better relationship with your spouse, all different kinds of stuff in there and they're fantastic. So. I get paid nothing for this endorsement. Money you know, but it's a great one. I've got that on my phone too. It's it is typically what I read a church. Yeah because it's easier to carry that way. That's right. I happen to go to the church that. Created it which is live church. So Oh, very cool. Yeah. Yeah. So just so everybody knows live church is actually the largest in America, but it's not one location. It's thirty five locations in ten states so Craig Rochelle's pastor. One of my favorite podcast listen to leadership is his. It's called the Craig Rochelle leadership podcast. Again, it's an aside I'll put a though thing about it in the show notes so that you guys can check out his podcasts which is unbelievable and I can tell you even though he is a pastor, I'll tell you when he talks about leadership very rarely does he ever mention where he's coming from from his perspective as far as a pastor is just more in terms of leadership and team building in that sort of thing stuff. Oh my gosh. So so good I just. There's a reason you only does it once a month 'cause there's so much in it so rich. All right..

What's that GonNa look like and how can we get there and that was a sweet time in our and our marriage to just really redefine how he wanted to proceed as you know people in a career or in a business and what are we want a family to look like the intention holiday of our time together and so that was a big a big Damascus road if you will from me face. All right. Very cool. All right. Now, I gotta ask the hard question here. Because because the Damascus road experience that. Gut. Wrenching. I. Know I'm not where I need to be but I know I gotta be someplace else and I can't take it any more I go back to a phrase I heard years ago. And it has to do with changing. Like. When you? WanNa. Make sure I get this right. I remember it later I mean, ended up messing it up now so I'll include it later listeners put it in the show notes when I remember what I wanted to say about change. This whole idea about struggling I, WANNA I wanna hit on that for a minute. because. For those of you, listeners, if faith is a new thing to you this whole idea of somehow living my life in a way that's not for me specifically or not or my group where I'm living for something beyond myself. If you get to that point. I'm going to tell you now..

Kind of tell us what role now is faith playing in your life both at home and in your business as yeah. Yeah. Great question I remember being at A. An event years ago and I was still kind of new to online marketer online. Entrepreneur scene. And as guy respected her listeners podcast and he was previous pretty upfront about where he stood with with faith and. and. We're here at the event I. Our right He's kind of prepping the day and. And he goes, Hey, you know I might. Prep guys might drop the F bomb few times and I'm like. Well, that's Kinda. Weird. Come from the don't think and then he pauses like. Shocked guys. Little Bit. There didn't know. My F-. Word is faith. Here's because everything I do is through that Lens. I said you know what that really resonated with me because that's that's who I've become over. The years is everything I do is through the Lens of faith. How I am with my wife how I shepard my kids. How I talked to my clients, I mean, it's all got to be integrity and so. That's that's what I'm big about. I think as guys it's so easy to silo. Parsons of our life unions, you've probably heard that the illustration like you know. Not, the winner from Mars Linen from Venus like guys are like waffles and women like Spaghetti. Okay guys we like poor little syrup one little compartment over here and over here and and these little segments don't touch but women it's like Spaghetti man, it's all mixed together every piece touches each other right That's how I want my faith to be as permeating. All that I do. Yeah. So that's that's really how I wear my faith on my sleeve. It's all through my lens again, like you I'm not A. Bible, Basher or anything like that. But. Truth permeates and all that I. do absolutely you know the the analogy that I like to use reminds me of an activity I did with my mom when I was a kid..

"I happen to be a person of faith I've told you all that before you know that about me, my faith background happens to be as a Christian I am a Jesus follower. That's who I am I'm not pushing that on any of you are listening. I'm just telling you where I happen to come from, and that's the world view that I have and it permeates all of who I am and everything I think in the way I do things like business. So knowing that it's a part of who I am personally but also professionally. I want us to take a deep dive into that today, and that's why I'm by decrease on here because he is a person of faith as well and I know that this is really really important to him. So. Chris before we go much deeper into that I do want to. I want you to take some time. I to kind of fill in some gaps for us. So I kind of early on told folks have kind about who you are. I teased some information from your past but kind of fell us in how did you get to where you are now? Sure well. It's funny. Will probably throw in those to taboo topics right here in the story hit. Right away because let's do it. Why not? Right that's right. So I mean I, John like I grew up in a Christian home was around church or had a great. Great Home Life Paris love the Lord. And grew up that way when off to a Christian college met my wife We got married a few years later and then my first career was actually in politics of all things like you mentioned Iran I was president of the largest pack up Political Action Committee in Southern California. And so for the next five years, this is right after literally my senior year I jumped into this job and for the next five years was deep in the business world of politics. So it was all the kind of multimillionaires in southern California that were given big checks to if their candidates office and lobby for business economic issues your. MASS DIRTY WORLD And I learned a lot through that process and unfortunately. You know really really backslid in in my faith. I was I was at a typical Sunday Christian. We would still go to church but I was I was filling seat frankly and and so there's a whole story there Michigan kind of fast forwarding can go back to that but. Eventually had this this experience I knew I needed to get out of this world I needed to scratch this entrepreneurial itch that I had as well, and so had a little kitchen table experience with my wife for we took inventory said, well, Gosh. What are we interested in? What are we? You know gifted in what did we learn? What are we kinda good ad or and all these things started throwing down into piece of paper and that began our entrepreneurial start of we. We started an online travel company together called mission, Travel Nice. So really embraced our faith again and. Melody with business and that we would provide all the travel coordination for churches and universities and. Nonprofit organizations to take care of all their travels for overseas international mission projects. And so we still own that company today..

So I want to tell everybody little bit about Chris and where he comes from. A Chris has some background in politics now sometimes, he'll admit to that sometimes, he won't because that's almost like. Another lifetime ago for him. But beyond that, what he's into now Chris is a coach, he's a consultant, he's an entrepreneur and speaker. But. He has two other titles that I think he holds most dear. And that's husband in debt. So beyond that, what Chris does is he works directly with business owners and he helps them live a life of freedom by implementing systems and providing strategies in my close on that Chris. Absolutely yes. I want more guys to understand the life of freedom. As a business owner entrepreneur, if you make some key changes and tweaks to how you run your business because Johnny, it can be overwhelming all-consuming but. What good is it to to stop smoking away, fill up a bank account but come home to some empty relationships at home and so that's that's what I'm. All about is is helping other guys.

"One of those deals where I didn't have a prom kind thing. And they wanted to meet up date so they heard about her and they connected us and just from just from the start if I may matter to who she ran with the crouching I'm not trying to stereotype anybody but I knew the people she was running with it was a red flag from the start that I I didn't expected to go as long as it did. And adding especially gold as far as a day with it comes our relationship because just everything I saw around her and they had the day with her when we first met. I mean looking back. It's actually surprising it went. It lasted as long as it did it was. I mean they print size where I mean her history. What gutter and so much trouble in the yen was. She was surrounded by the beginning. I just chose to. I won't say nowhere but dot it was something I didn't have to worry about the time and then from there on out I mean there's probably still stuff. I don't know that if I I would only end out of definitely said no way but I city as though it's something I have to accept and I got two beautiful girls out of it so much of a headache as it was. It was still worth it for them to. Yeah absolutely and I was going to ask the follow up question you know because we all have our reasons for staying. We all have our reasons for me know keeping ourselves in situations that we find ourselves in. We all have our reasons for not exiting. When we're when on the inside were telling ourselves you know you need you need to leave. You need to stop. You need to go whatever and I was going to ask you. What was your reason? What was your why for staying and the actually went ahead an answer that question because you didn't feel that in the moment there was there was going to be anything else you know to to follow. You know you didn't see where in the moment you needed to leave because you never thought that it was going to go further than what it was or what it did so. Thank you for answering that question in advance. I'm so so with the whole parenting that you have gone through. What would be either the most important thing if you can narrow it down to one or if you need to you know if you need a few more A few more spots you know maybe your top three things that you learned through your process and experience of co-parenting. What are the most important things you've learned? Most important thing I learned was. There's no such thing as much society wants us to believe it. There's no such thing as a status quo when it comes to co-parenting Internet there's no such thing as the status quo when it comes to relationships period. Now thanks. We're for me. I had to learn after the fact but I think a lot of people get so wrapped up in the. I'm looking at what society thinks. It should be how it should be whether it's in while you're in a relationship why or after the relationship but the simple fact is we live in a world that there's so much variety and that applies in everything including relationships and there's reasons and things that don't they are not factored into society status quo co-parenting that get overlooked. That probably more people than we really will ever know. Go through and deal with and why and why they make decisions. They do so ultimately. That's my thing I have to give three. That's my thing is we? Have you have to understand? You don't have to meet the standards of society when it comes a situation like this because there's no standard because there's not one way to do things absolutely. I love it. That is awesome. Okay so for our listeners. And you know what I might ask you to answer this question as well for the the female listening but I answer the question for males. What advice would you give other? Mel's that are in your situation on keeping on and just do what you need to do for you your kids and don't let nothing else affect that. I mean your decision making the choices you make what you do. Daily should be centered around. What's best for you and your kids and nothing else should play a factor in it and that should be your main focus and at the end of the day. Be of this. Lay Your head down your pillow and know that you've done the best you could and made the best decision you could for you and your children. Yes absolutely and I would be curious to hear your answer because of you being in law enforcement and having seen both sides and all of the intricacies of Chelsea afford in and battles with custody of kids at this and that do you have any advice for females. That are that are going through this as well for me for me. I don't think I don't think it's different either way. I don't I don't see I don't see there being a difference because in the end it's not about the husband or the dad or the mom it's ultimately about the kids and whether you're female or your mail. I feel that should be your focus on number what you're going through if if if co-parenting is somewhat working and it's best for the kids and you make it work great but don't feel like you have to do something you you don't have to stay in a relationship and you don't have to co parent for your kids to be successful because I can sit here and say and I'll brag on for because they're I mean they're my kids. I was supposed to brag on but for as much crap as they've been Ian as much as they went through and the co-parenting not working. The eldest has three point seven. Gpa Sixteen and in basketball succeeding track got colleges looking at her. She goes. Start Your senior year next year. The other daughter is doing just as well in school. She's just start high school but she's playing sports and doing her thing and they're both being successful in life and that's why I say I don't think it matters if it's male or female he just have to understand you and what's best for your kids and everything else take care of itself. Niemeyer wedding by around you saying if you know what's best. Don't worry about the wrist. That's right that's right and to to in that's awesome. I love to hear that your girls are doing awesome and amazing and I'm sure that we can Also give Kudos to your wife or you know stepping in and playing that part with the blended families is that would you say that most definitely at her name's Sylvia I think she played a huge role and I actually give her more credit than anybody else because that mom. We don't use the word step anymore. I mean they. They call her mom. They see her as mom. I mean the oldest is wanting to change middle name to her middle name and but I have the up. Most respect for people step in a role stepping enrolled in. Do it Wale when they really don't have to and that's one thing she's done from day one has when we first met. She treated the girls like they were her own. And it's just grown to the point. They have great relationships their best friends. I mean this is something to behold and I definitely serves all the credit. As far as I'm concerned I tell people that I mean when it comes the how well they're doing. It is because of her role in it. All that is awesome. Yeah we definitely have to give her her moment because she fulfilled role. Just like you said. She fulfilled that role to wear. Your daughters did not fill a void. You know your daughters are not having to just grow up with just you know being parented by father you know they can have both you know as as creation as as we were created to. Do you know to have both a female and our mel parents. You know to raise us. And because we get different things from each parent and so that is so awesome that your girls did not have to miss out on any of that and you also mentioned how you have four kids total so with you and Sylvia. You guys have two boys. Yes Ma'am Brag on them. I have a nine year.

"You sort of shared their some experiences that you've had in meeting with folks who were maybe a stray or Heddon in the. Wrong direction. Do you think that that is because we are being misled or that were planning under false assumptions, whether they're our own fault. Or those are the assumptions that are perhaps our advisers assumptions that we are relying on. Well, I think that this is a little of both. But I think that that I always think that when I see this sort of thing that that some folks in our industry are really selling products and not the strategies to meet the objectives that the people need to reach. And some of it is that the that the consumer that the individual does not have a clear picture of what their objectives ought to be. I think there's a hesitancy on the parts of some advisers. To to educate people. There's just a lot of different factors that go on. But you know. It's sometimes it's the lack of experience, you know, sometimes it's a lack of follow up. Sometimes it's just that people don't really understand what these products are strategies are going to do for them or not do for them. There's also I think a loyalty to buy by advisors to some products and strategies in the market that really don't serve the the needs of retirement properly, and we try very hard to get people in into into strategies that take them out of the market for the most part. So that their money will be there to provide lifetime income one of the biggest biggest questions people will say to me when they come in is do I have enough money to retire? Well, I'd be able to stay retired. You know that is there concern on X number of years old. And I've got here's what I've got you. Tell me, you know, is this can I use will this be enough? And a lot of times there's a false sense of security because they don't really understand the consequences of of the strategies or products that they're in. And you know, so it's a lot of different factors. Really, peter. Well, we need to make sure that we do understand the products the strategies that we are in the ones that we are implementing and the assumptions that we are making when we are planning. And I know that unfortunately, Mike, we do have some general assumptions that we have made the majority of Americans in our planning that are actually causing some issues and problems into and through retirement. And so those are some of the main problems that you help people solve do, you know that I'll give you an idea the ACO metric kinds of things that people sometimes think. I can remember a lady that came to me. She had lost a lot of money in the market. And she said to me, she said, do you think I should double down and increase my risk? And she did that with part of the money not with me. And she lost that it's just it's just the different points of view when I look at what people have I wanna number one can serve what they have. So they don't lose it. And then I want to see them grow. What they have. And then keep what they get. And that's what it's about. That is that's what it's really about. You know, it's not about gambling. It's not about it's not about taking more risk taking more chances and so forth. It's about conserving. What you get what you have and growing it and getting more and so forth and planning how you're going to use different pots of money in different ways to provide you with the security so that you can go forward in a prosperous manner. That again is why Mike Niemeyer offers you the opportunity to to come in to have that conversation to understand what you are doing what you could be doing to help achieve and accomplish your financial. Goals your objectives. All you have to do is pick up the phone give a call a great opportunity to do. So for so many reasons where.
