He's like why not isaac well put-on get back there. It's like awesome like toggle between two titans as a young aspiring executive. So two weeks later invites me back are. I begged my way back over. You wanna you wanna remember the story. And so i go back in saint in a comfortable chair pacing rounds office. I finally get lead in any sitting behind his desk. Throws a book at me and says. Don't come back until you read this. I catch the book. I looked out in. Its a vince lombardi. I was like i. I have to go read this now like out a like in the car. I go back to new york same. Eighteen hundred calls same routines like a read. The book you know anyway. So it's funny like i. I went back and third time. And this i asked to take. Take now commissioner adam. Silver and burning. My longtime boss could both amazing friends of mine. Now and i'm in the car. And i'm a low totem pole. I'm thirty years old. And so i had written notes written up notes as. Here's what i think we should say like because i said to stern on like i don't think you send me back there by myself. Like i don't think he cares about me. i don't think he. I don't think it's any respect to say. And so he's like you know. I can ask him. He's like well whatever. I can deal with toll thing so. I grabbed my boston. Adam where the car over there. And so i prepared these notes you know for these guys like three pages of notes. Here's what i would say. Here's why would lead the questions out. Ask teed up. Because that's what i did for the nba off consultant for the team. So i would go in particular when new people took over the teams. I would go in and kind of run them through a you know. Here's a don't list effectively and here's a to do list. And here's an evaluation of your organization. And here's some recommendations etc so we're in the car and i was like okay. You guys have this right got it. So we sit down. Lou says you know bernie and they had known other back from the providence days and brings like adam adam scott. I'm like you guys got kidney. So here i am about to get slaughtered. So i go into my pitch because i know the organization very used to work there. Then that's a start as a marketing assistant so new new. The players knew the organization. So i go into my life hardcore. Here's where i've found. Here's what i think we need to do. But i went through and he was putting me to. I mean keep. He put me on the hot seat and i was going to hold on my own doing my thing so i went down to hear the ten things i would change. Tomorrow i did a whole solo thick and so he's like are you done now. I was like yes i am. You know figuring. I was gonna get thrown out for the third time. Why not tons of charm and he goes and he opens his board. Had this big like covered forty opens it up everything that i walk in through. He had written down the board walk dinner. So that that's Is a good lesson on so many fronts. One is never underestimate the great lula morello in business in hockey as a friend. He's one of the one of the great human beings in the sport of hockey. And i've cherished my friendship with him and and hope to have a statue of him outside the prudential center at some point He's that good i mean. He's the vince lombardi of hockey. He's he's the great of the great human being and as hockey executive and so that's one two we ever you go into his office. You better put a tie on you. Better have read something from vince. Lombardi and you better be prepared. But he funny twenty one of my one of my all time favorite people. I got two more quick ones for you. Number one. how. Many madison square garden executives can adam graves pinned against the boards at the same time. So i i listen. I am a basketball junkie. Okay i think hockey is the greatest live sport in the history of the world. But i grew up skating a little bit of hockey on chadwick lake in newburgh new york but no skill at all none. Okay good hands. They say but but moves like a a sloth on the ice if you could imagine a sloth and skates so the first thing i did when i got the amnesty was like hey when we played hoop. We don't play. This is madison square garden. And what we do now so for the first six months i was getting my regular bre in on the court next on your kid so on the court. Madison square garden wisconsin dream. And why didn't have any legs even then my mouth. I'm a world class shit talker world class and so the hockey guy started. Give me a hard time. Oh you're guys not. I love hockey. And they're like can we play on the ice outside. Yeah and so if there were a fifth line. I don't think i would have been on advocating for the games but we did have rhonda gay played added gravy played. I mean it was kind of unbelievable and a lot of guys played with. Were college hockey player. So and i'm not but we had like there was a group of us that couldn't play and play. Now i'd be on that group and adam graves like ever hit anybody. Not he's like take me and i literally. I stayed as fast. I can't which is slow and try to put him into the board. And i bounced off like a like a super bowl like memory. Were katya super bowl. That was me. An angry is the nicest in the history of the world. I don't know if you know. Maybe it all but literally i mean he eats all. You cannot believe me i meet. You can't believe that someone can be that authentic in that wonderful net night on the not so much so i bounced him off him like a super bowl and and i was my mouth the whole time. Which wasn't a great idea. And then at one point the puck into the corner of course would be twenty minutes skate over there. And i felt pressure on my body. Like i've never felt before. And i felt like i was pinned to the glass. Almost like a bad sitcom where your face is like against the glass and it felt like an hour. It was probably a minute but it was way too long so he had me and two other guys pinned and immobilized for way too long but not not a fun night. that's for sure. And here's my last one. If chris jury was kidnapped and replaced by you would anybody be able to tell the difference through our cat in. When i was at the rangers people that have been with been around kind of big market big revenue teams at small market Lower revenue teams have. So it's of fun to think back. Those meme reason and chris was drew as a elite elite leader and a wonderful human being. When i was at games. I would either be asked if i was chris jury or if i was brother i mean it was. It was almost painful. Like i took it as a great compliment. Scott both professionally. And if you're comfortable personally what makes you nervous. What makes me any kind of technology. Uncertainty logging onto this podcast. I hadn't used his platform before cold sweat getting in the car. I'm an awful driver. I'm not as bad as my daughters by the way. I don't know if you know this but my daughters are such bad drivers that the insurance company called and said we're not willing to carry you anymore. Oh wow and i said there has to be some price we can pay and they said not with us so yeah three. Crashes and several tickets later the not destroy their lovely ladies but not their strong point. But when i'm driving. I get anxious if i'm going but but not too much else and the final one if commissioner gary bettman called you this afternoon and said scott. We're giving you the ability to change one thing in hockey. What would it be. And you can't answer by gary. I'm the commissioner. Actually you could. That would be even funnier..

"Sierra four elliott today our special guest is the ceo of the new jersey. Devils also Ceo the philadelphia. Seventy sixers of the nba. Scott o'neill Real interesting guy. Real interesting background. Think you're going to enjoy this conversation. should also point out. He is the author of a new book called. Beware your feet are Seven principles that keep you present grounded and thriving from your perch before we get into the peace year. What do think people should know about. Scott o'neill he's got a really interesting background. He's been at madison square garden. He's now as you mentioned with the devils and sixers one of the things we talk about is the process what they went through on both in on-court and business perspective from the seventy sixers when they basically scorched the earth and that is a hotly debated thing you know. I love in the interview. The stuff about lula morale. I think i think people in in our sport are fascinated by lula morello and what he's like and the stories he tells are pretty hilarious. The thing that i think about this interview. I like is it. It really veered into different topics. Jeff some very serious and some very light soul. I think in this one. There's going to be something for everyone. The one that i was curious about with his work with the devils. And we saw this with the seventy sixers. He goes into it in some depth here. We've seen teams just for the sake of this podcast. Considering its hockey will focus on hockey. We've seen some teams start to come together on the ice but the organization around the team sort of isn't ready for success and the organization scrambles and it costs the team on the ice elliott. We've seen this countless times. We don't talk about it a lot but it does happen. And it happens with some frequency with the philadelphia. Seventy sixers. you know. This group had a depress team a team. That couldn't win but in that moment and around that time what they went about is sort of what they're going about in new jersey right now creating an environment around the team so when that team is ready to be great the organization around the team is great as well so there isn't any conflict or friction or they'll be nothing that the organization does that affect negatively. What happens on the ice. I agree with that entirely when you're in in his position. You know everything that happens reflects on you whether it's your fault or not It reflects on you because your the face. It's funny when. I say this a lot but know what you're signing up for. I tell it especially to young journalism. Students are are young reporters. Know what you signed up for. There are great rewards but there are also great risks and one of the things out. There is that when you go into this business. You put yourself out there publicly jeff. Every mistake you. And i make everyone sees it. Oh yeah scott. O'neil you get the great tidal you get all the perks and benefits that go with it but that also means that everything reflects on you and i think the best understand and it's clear like there's a point in the interview where he disagrees with one of my and he says to me you should get your facts straight and the the the reaction i take from that is this is a person who has incredible pride in the job that they do and the company that they work with and i think that's the way it should be. You should be willing to say. Hey i defend what we're thinking. And i defend our process and what. I think the best leaders do that. They admit mistakes whenever they happen. I loved his book. Talks about failure and how to handle it. I think being a leader is to things accepting mistakes and blame for them. But to having pride in where you work for and wanting to be the best. And i think in this interview it shows both of those sides of you agree or disagree.

Are we really truly advancing those of color in our business? We celebrate them in a proper way, and if we don't know how to celebrate them in A. A proper way and don't be so egotistical that you think you have all the answers that you not willing to get those answers, and that's where I. Think a lot of companies now have to ask. Our talent will have to ask those at around us. We'll have to ask other organizations to come in and kind of help us. with our platforms and with our structure but the NFL has to do it NBA has to do it. Has To do it.

Court date happens. The verdict comes out not guilty, and now all of his as a completely different restart so continue using your platform guys to just put out messaging speaking truth, you know if you see something, say something, don't be silent about anything and be authentic in your message, and your fans will will love you more for but more importantly your love yourself more for it because you don't what you can make this whole world, a better place, but specifically here American.

My daughter's three years old and we have conversations, and so at any age you can have these conversations with your kids. It's so important and you know wanting titus. I really wanted to pick your brain about that kind of drives me crazy on social media. Is just sometimes the misconception of people with the protest because I see so many of my friends and my family going the protest and their own peaceful and beautiful, but then the media tries to make it like it's angry and out of control and wild, and you've been at so many protests lately. Can you kind of give a little just like lighter listeners of kind of what these protests are like if they can't make it out there? Some of them are more spirited in invoice than others You have some silent protests. We had a silent protest on just on yesterday. We had about six hundred people there, and it was beautiful. It was a great opportunity for the university community to come together and I've seen it on the other round. where it's been peaceful. It's been loud. We'd be people with signs. You know you have people with bullhorns and etc and my main thing is. The nineteen sixties and seventies 'cause they kinda.

That was like I. Don't know I think it sounded like I, played it, but artem he had them learn one of our songs, and it was unforgettable by French Montana and Swahli. And that's what they were playing when I walked, and they played such maisy music like I was my oh, bad for them, because I'm like Oh man this orchestra to play their own music for the show, but you guys. They were incredible. Why I'm hoping that. Maybe there's some way we could showcase them on the youtube channel or do something, but it was just so awesome, and then how much we all danced in their like they show that the dinner was incredible that castle.

Oh definitely and I have to say I cannot believe tomorrow night is the season finale of total balas and everyone gets to find out your gender finally, but we before you go there. How about when I fell down the stairs? Yet, but they didn't get a really see that I now I got the. I got the perfect. But I didn't drop champagne I was. I was very proud of myself. But before you get more night, we have to talk about the end of the episode. We found out you were pregnant and how that's right. You know I've been carrying this baby for. Over seven months now, so I totally forgot about that. You know it's funny because I did a youtube video talking about this, but you guys have been on this crazy journey with me on total Balas and I saw a lot of people socially were just like you know. Does it suck for breeze? Unborn child how much she didn't want a second kid, and then she ends up getting pregnant and how shocked she was. Was and this is how I look at things I was not ready to be a mother to two I'm Brian. And I both have these crazy careers. We couldn't get our hands on our careers and our marriage and parenting. We didn't have the balance, and it's really taken us a while to Kinda. Not only find the balance because I hate always saying balanced balanced balance, but just how to juggle it all and. Finally realizes I had to put my career number three number four my marriage, my family is number one and then I start to prior toys after that prioritize thinking to call I, said that really weird show. I think SEDONA really opened up. Brian, our hearts, and our minds, and it made he, and just connect in a really spiritual deep way that we needed, and I just have to say for any of you guys who been married for a while, or you've been in a position like Brian. I, that you've seen this season total. Balas. Getting professional help helps so much 'cause it's even hard to do that on your own and I am so happy you don't say this. You have to pay for an oil. Check or you have to pay to get your carpets clean air conditioning. Fix You pay for all these things to keep your house going your car moven. We gotTA also sometimes pay to keep the marriage, but you know Brian I told you this, but. Look. All of you listening now when you tune into total Bellas, and probably how you felt about me in this episode, and you're going to have some of these feelings with me on the season finale, but sometimes there comes a point in her life that you know we go back and forth with a certain situation because we can't help what we're feeling, we can't help with. Environment were in or the people that surround us and opinions that they give us. and. This is what I. Told Brian. The end your relationship wasn't ready for the Child Wasn, but God knew that after Sedona he knew that now this is when these can bring a child into your life, and so don't listen to anyone who says like you're poor child, no child. If it came in at the wrong time, it came in when God new. You're ready same with artem and I like you're gonNA. See Tomorrow night on the season finale. I fight a lot of emotions feeling like. Did I get engaged too fast? Like was I own a high and then I get pregnant and I have to say that I. I tend to run from things and. And I fear commitment but I feel like it was God's doing his way of saying like no, you're the perfect place at the perfect time, and this is a gift of showing you the you are exactly where you're meant to be and so I know people have the same opinions about me. Because I've voice a lot. This season I was not ready to have a kid. I am now so ready to be a mom in so excited for it. It's something I've wanted my whole life and God knew this is the perfect time for it, so that's how I feel with your relationship. And your baby and I feel same with mine and I cannot wait.

By the way the voice of our producer came in so element I didn't even know Pronoun. I will be using the correct Pronoun from here on out and that excites me more than ever because.

"Yeah, that's scary. Why does say I just entered thirty one weeks and the one symptom that I felt that they say you get starting thirty one weeks the swelling and just retaining a lot of water. I notice. You're wearing your compression. Thoughts. And it's so weird. How mmediately just your face like? When artem took the photo of you and I walk him last night because the sunset. I just looked at that and go. No, no, no, no, no, that's not me. I won't even let them send it to me and I know that sounds so vain, but I couldn't help it be like.

The minute that I ladies scraped and I saw what was happening down there so much that you won't let arms and your that cute picture. We took last night with the sunset. Well I'll send it to you, but it doesn't need to be posted. How about that? Okay? Now? I think I'm going to post it. Whenever well speaking of Artem I have to say I absolutely loved last week's episode of Total Balas. I think it was really fun to watch the engagement. I was sad because I wanted people to see more France like we were there. For while you know, and there's so many other things that we film that didn't make the show which you know always happens, but it was really fun just to relive the motions to the way. ARTEM set up engagement to see his. His family which I. It made me miss his family. I was like all. Where's mom and dad the saying? Oh, I bet you know I have to say that I feel like this past week's episode definitely should have been two episodes and I know you and I actually tried to fight for that because we filmed so much in France and we got such amazing footage. And I just feel like I'm only being half an episode. You craved more of it, but like now what I love is people know where artem gets his sweetness from his parents are just so incredibly sweet, his brother I mean when artem just started crying, knowing that they were fifteen minutes away. Made me teary eye again and me, too, and it was just I was so happy for him. And you know we had artem go out there. meet his parents without us because we wanted him to have that moment because it had been five years since he saw that and artists family are very close, and so it is hard that they they go almost every five six years, and then they see each other and Artemis goal with our baby is like we wanna make that a yearly thing where we see them not every five years and I, know it would mean a lot artem, but just in the episode seen how cute they were, and then I have to say for me. Seen all of you talk and plan the engagement. It's I mean that's where I'm lucky for reality TV because it really was fun to watch all you is in. Breach. Let's relive the moment where I go upstairs. And you're giving artem the ring which I had no idea that you're the one that flew with the ring. which by the way do you know how much? Day over that. I mean I could imagine now were hit. Diamond kept telling Mama's violence. I'm like okay, so if I go through security like why do you have this diamond? And I? Don't know what you always just think. You're in trouble rate and I was like, do they? Are they going to take it away from me? And then like I don't WanNa lose my backpack or actually leave my backpack somewhere and someone grabs it. There's just. Just, so much. I had to think about flying there. I was like I couldn't wait to give arden the room. And then when you walked into the room, it was the first time in my life. I had no idea what to say. Which is why you and I just had this crazy students, so we have this staredown and I'm just in my head. I remember just thinking. Why is it so awkward right now? Wondering you were hanging. Hungry and I wanted a nap. I was so because what people don't realize is artem and I. That was like day six of France for us, and we did all the business stuff, so artem and I were up morning till night, doing different seminars in wine, tastings and dinners, and it was incredible experience, but by the time you got there. We start filming. Aren't I were very tired and but you know we want to entertain or excited the families there, but I remember leaving that like argument I go in and take a nap. Remember filling all day like that was so weird. Like made me laugh so hard. Because we're just so, but now I know why it was so awkward what I'm like. Why didn't I think of something to say? But I had no idea what to say, and then artem didn't say anything. It was just that you guys were just. So weird and I'm like what it's as if like people were talking about you and you walk in and they don't know what to say. I'm like wow, but so I have to say and then just watching the engagement and. Artem just won't forget that tour because artem was just so nervous and You know as he was talking, and like you know anyone who's listening and you've been proposed to like I. Don't know what comes over your significant other, but like they just get like shaky, and and you're like what's happening right now. Like sometimes. You don't even know if you're gonNA. Break up with you, but artem was just so nervous as he's giving the tour and I'm thinking like it's the tour of a castle. It's my birthday and when he tells me look out the window when he gives me the rose. I laugh because it was pure darkness and I'm like Oh beautiful, but like what and later artem told me he goes. That was a whole vineyard that was supposed to be lit up, and that's why put the rose there because I wanted to show the vineyard and artem said when he goes out, and.

"Right everyone, so he and I are opening up with some yummy strawberry. Dockery's and we felt this was very appropriate. Since we just all saw the lunar eclipse of the Strawberry Moon how about Nikki and Iron Phoenix right now, and we haven't seen clouds forever, but the day that clouds wanted to come is when the lunar eclipse was happening, so we didn't even get to see it I know I like literally set my alarm for twelve twelve to see the lunar eclipse, and Arizona was filled with clouds, which I was grateful for, but I was like the one day you all WanNa. Show Up I. Know It's one of those things. It's like you WANNA complain because. With the summer heat in Arizona. When you see cloud, you feel like a little piece that maybe they'll be. It'll be a cooler day, so I was like Unicol I was grateful for it, but I'm like really out of all the days you come right, but I have to say. We were so blessed in the evening because we got the most beautiful strawberries sunset, that turned all those clouds into like strawberry colors, and then artem, and I went night swimming, and the send pretty much went down, but it was still light out. And we couldn't see the full moon yet, but the clouds were still super pink and I'm like Oh. It's from the moon. I loved it. Yeah, it was funny. Because Brian I was like. Oh artem Clark Grind. Swimming is like oh I could hear him I'm like. The life of being neighbors no way. Outside shaking the dogs out, and he could hear you guys swimming and I was just like I mean that's so crazy to me, right? It really is I have to say that. The best part about having porn. You know my pulls small, but it's perfect I. don't need anything big. is going swimming naked being pregnant? It is just so freeing for anyone who has been pregnant. You will understand this but like. It's just getting a lot of like. Just my boobs lane on my stomach. My boobs are getting heavier, and it's pushing out on my belly, which is getting heavier. I am in that water, the bubis float up to the top the belly. Eight instead of a effort wherever I'm at the belly fill so you're almost swimming in, you actually forget you're pregnant. I told artem the same thing last night. I go we're. I forget that I'm pregnant and I fill ache. To and not well beyond. That, so we're talking about pregnancy I. Would I really want to talk a lot about this before we recap? Tony is because the last three days. I, I've been hit with anxiety. I have been hit with a lot of realization. I've been really tired. I'm starting. I think hitting Gosh. I'm less than eight weeks out. I'm actually less than seven weeks out, but. I started to watch on TV show on. Netflix I know. It's really it's a cheeky. Little. British comedy called the down. I have not been able to go back to because one of the episodes they're so sleep deprived with their infant, and how they look and how they're acting I was like Oh that was how it was and I'm like wait a second. That's how I'm going to be, but have a toddler and my to Frenchies who are like these to needy babies and I literally Brian I. turned it off halfway through the episode. Because we started to getting Zeitung, we looked at each other and we're like. Oh, my gosh, like it's going to happen to us again and I'm scared. Don't because I haven't done it yet.

We need sleep to function, and and just do things productively and I'm like am I not going to be productive person anymore. It scares me. I mean I literally woke up last night? In the middle of the night I was probably maybe two hours and I went back to sleep I was lucky. Brian. This morning was like I'll get bird. You just keep sleeping.

This isn't even bad like you're only up for two hours of the night and you went back to sleep and your husband. Let you sleep in. I was like it almost brought. Tears is like I'm going to be way more tired than filling today and I know you didn't sleep last night I, didn't I?

on at the races and got a couple of plays maybe for the weekend gus but some some early thoughts before pre entries as we look Toward Cup it's always talked before pre entries but breath just looking at the races exciting exciting racist to get excited about it I think cameras just said I think the sprint and the dirt mile probably the two right now but I mean we have three solid juvenile's with noon Dennis moment eight rings and and Max Bill which I think three of those are very quality horses and just looking to see how these fields shape up but I mean I'll see you know some great opportunities in those fourteen racist for sure what we haven't obviously we haven't had a chance to talk anything on a consistent basis but what do you like to do when it comes to terms of a ticket structures and and focus in how many how many multi-race wagers which one's the utilize the most I'll tell you what you know you get these big fields I had the most success with exactly is in doubles to tell you the truth sometimes simple the up keep it simple and You get I mean you get a lot of value and those plays with the you know arch fields in and actually pick a couple of wide open races I usually focus on that I do tickets with the you know the picked force and I like to find at least one single maybe to deepen the other one and maybe spread that's what I kind of look forward definitely a single though in the pick four pick five I definitely need one host but I think even the pick threes you know the pick threes are they paid handsomely in the last few years as well but I think people you know who spoke with the exact in the doubles I mean you can get some real value if you if you got a good opinion onto racist back to back you can get paid well and we were in fact last week with Jeff Siegel this came up and when I was asking Jeff about his preparations and when it comes to the a ticket building and and we'll remind everybody that as much time as we spend handicapping the gotta spend a hundred percent the maybe not maybe not practical to spend as much time building the tickets but there's gotta come a point Wednesday Thursday where you you've got a pretty good idea of of the horses you're going to key around take a break from I'm from the handicapping and put pen to paper and write down the your perspective wagers and budgeted out and and you know take a look at the you know once we get the announcement I think it's on the twenty third by the way runs day the twenty third will be the race order official order announcement the Breeders Cup has a tendency to the tinker with it based on on the way the field size shape up you know look at that structure highlight the spots where you've got your strongest opinion and then back up on either side of those strong opinions if you're a mother erased player and you know we keep suggesting you know if you if you typically pick four player okay fine you're going to play your series of fake force but this is where you take a step back to and play more pick threes and the doubles and I I I think it's advice that I try to drive home every single u a year that you you don't WanNa have some of your best ideas the horses that end up winning that you had a good feel for an and then you didn't cash because there's some upset in the third or fourth leg of a pick four and you you didn't leverage your good idea as strongly as you might have oh I totally agree with that you know like you said once the the race orders come in just pick your spots we have your strongest opinions and then you go from there I mean that's I mean horse players nightmare there were your your ten to one shot twelve the one shot comes in and then you're single maybe a three to one shot you know doesn't come in the last leg and you didn't have anything on on on your your strongest opinion the price that's that's tough pill does Walla sometimes no doubt gusts will obviously you know get a chance to direct people toward you and and the analysis at at Brisbane that and Talk Again Cup Week maybe you know pick out a a a spot that you know the to discuss what what he did complain of of late how much keeneland action you taking it definitely on the weekends for sure and dabbling a little bit during the week I mean some great racing the weather's been fantastic and big fields they're coming to an end here this weekend but got a couple of plays today actually Keelan let me here let me let me see got hold on I got the where's where's my keeneland Friday Thursday AK with Saturday I keep the Friday about what's going on down believable there's so much there's so many things here did you play Gulfstream yesterday by the way did you play the pick five thing a little bit I did I did and got knocked out pretty early believe it or not you would not price horse which is Kinda it'll happen yeah oh yeah it was over quick so it's pretty full paid well for me though for the for the amount of low prices that were that were at three was a signal and the third leg so I know it's funny that that was the that was the horse that gave the opportunity to to to tip toe to turn it into a pick four but yet I do get the sense a lot of people got tripped up either on the in the first leg or the last leg where the two spots we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get the one side of the other well let's talk about Qinglin go ahead what are you got today seven just my best friend today force MS coming out of the Woodbine Mile Bill Seventy eight to one mile with a chaining hill started the outside somehow he he maneuver beautifully coming into the turn but down the stretch is totally got shut off had nowhere to go I thought he had nice I made a move just didn't have enough to go this horse has been running good all year up at Woodbine five draws the five here which is which is ideal nine to two is very fair price is a loaded racist could be a stakes race disallowance this allowance race but I like plot I think he's going to get a good trip there's enough speed in front where he's going to be right in stock and right behind I mean he's faced some nice horses I think this is the time to to get in this at somewhere of now ninety two would it be beautiful if we can get that and I think we will because you know the outside you have a few horses that are going to take some money especially Colin Road for for Michael Maker Jose Ortiz that was gonNA take somebody coming out of ah graded great three but ms I think is the wholesome and a key on all over in in starting reporter and race seven and Connor Murphy for whatever reason Connor Murphy does not does not draw money and wins I mean he wins plenty does a good job interesting to see Mark Glatt come to keeneland souter shows up here yet pick source interesting ski Churchill last time kind of finished pretty decent but it's a nice horse was nice races earlier in the year so and you got Roselle Rosario on board into feature the feature very nice race today again the the greatest Devali view fulfilled I think by horses winter sunset four eight to one on the morning line think might get a couple of clicks down I mean she's versatile I don't know if she wants to go nine furlongs I think she kinda flattens out at nine furlongs the mile amount of sixteenth which is I think this is her her best distance coming off a win at Indiana ground at any grant she's got a nice post and she's just a nice trip there there's some speed lined up to the inside I think she can get I run and I mean the twelve is going to be flying late this lady the prince a lot for Baltistan she's eight to one I think she comes down from that I can see here making a big move middle of course coming down the lane but winterson that's it for me eight to one would be great I think she gets I run on on on the closers and should sit a nice trip there again for channing hill it's now and Bhartiya earlier to Mardi landed on winter sunset yeah I'm not sure what the price I think she might down from Chad you've got to chat horses that are Ya Chad takes money like you you saw yesterday focus group was was really over bet yeah I like him but it's too crazy I'll tell you what I have a bomb in the second race so a bomber I'm GonNa take just fly the one horse abstinent for Ian Wilkes make third start first time on on the turf going to turns Bravo Bravo couple of wins from six starts the meat this horse broke the last couple of times I starts his career broke out think the inside post and Bravo might be able to as well she's fifteen to one in the morning line you might get fifteen twenty to one hundred Meta take a flyer on her and also gotTa pick for tonight at down coming
Have you saved enough for retirement?
"The universal question. The universal concerns were talking about today. Have I saved enough for retirement? And will I out live my savings Phyllis? These are questions just about everybody has going into retirement. The good news is there are some basic ingredients in the formula to help address these questions, and when we talk about those basic ingredients for your retirement plan. We're talking about things like income and growth, and protection and liquidity Phyllis. You mentioned protection we have to do more than just build up our savings and then start to take money out of it in retirement, we have to protect it as well. So what are some of those tools? We can use. Use to protect our savings. So protecting your savings one tool that that you can use today, and I don't like to necessarily get into tools, and and have people feel like I'm promoting it. But but it annuity can be a good tool for that. And there are several different types. The right annuity can be a tool because no matter what's going on in the market, you you're not going to lose your principle. It depends when you're going to need that money how liquid you need it. And if you need it for income, but that can be very good tool. If you just need income, another good tool believe it or not could be a strong dividend portfolio. Stock portfolio now understand that I said if you're going to need it for liquidity, I can't guess where the principal's going to be in a given day of the market. But, but if you've got a strong portfolio of good dividend paying stocks, we can expect that we're going to get those dividends. If you need it for income that could be a real good tool. If people are comfortable with rental income. Okay. They understand the real estate market. They they're not uncomfortable managing themselves are even hiring affirm that steady income if they know how to buy right can be another source of good ROI in good, stable income. Those are just a few of it used to be that you could build a really good bond ladder to me. Maybe you can do some short term bond plays. But I'm not a big proponent right now. With interest rates kind of undecided. Never say never. I might throw it in there. But because it can throw up some income. But but your principle can go down with that. We've got to be careful they're going to be liquid and fluid on that end. So so we're looking for some income and protection. What are we trying to protect if we're trying to protect income for life? There are some really good annuities out that that lasts until death. Do you part for both you and your spouse oftentimes can give you some healthcare benefits that could be something that we want to look at and none of these for all your money. No tool is the silver bullet for an income plan. Please. And the others dividend producing stocks. We're looking for if we're looking for income, maybe bones. Maybe some real estate thrown in the different tools. How do we decide we figure out how much we need when we need it? And we explained the pros and cons and strings attached of each of those investments, those tools, and we help you to figure out where you most comfortable, we build a plan accordingly Phyllis. Let's talk about another one of these basics in our retirement plan, one of the basic goals NATs liquidity. Now that seems to me very different from the tools that we're going to want to use to protect our income and to protect our savings. What are some of the tools if we need an element of liquidity in our plan? So that that's a real. I'm really conservative here. I believe everybody needs an absolute takeout. And I. Interest rates are very low. But I think everybody needs some money in some type of money market or a line of equity on their home. If it's paid up with not paying anything for that. But they can write that off and have easy access money. I'm not a big believer. If it's for the quitting that you're going to put that money in stocks or even a bond because those principles can go down. Sometimes you can do a shorter term new itty or you can have enough money in in the annuity that the free withdrawals that they offer. We know it can't go down to the market will provide us enough. But we got to be really really careful there and liquidity is a funny thing, you know, you've worked your entire life, and you deserve some peace of mind, and everybody's going to be different about what is peace of mind for them in retirement. And as long as you're not ridiculous. We can't get enough income. We want to build a plan where you know, maybe have a little bit. Liquid account. That's not earning enough. But you still have a great income and you sleep better at night. Have it around for emergencies? But we've got a us safe vehicles. Very safe vehicles understand the pros and cons strings attached. To those to a good rule of thumb is is you really shouldn't have. And it's always different but more than retirement more than six months of what your bills are in a really liquid liquid account. That's a good rule of thumb, but it's not hard. It's not set in stone. Everybody's different. These are the things that we really hash out when we sit down. It's getting to know you what's important to you. And showing you the reality of what's important to you. That's the retire fit analysis part part science will show you the real numbers. But but we gotta design in around where you're comfortable. Everybody has different risks homes. Everybody has a different situation. And it's so important that we take that into a. Account as we build a plan
