Republican leaders are working through the weekend in hopes of avoiding a government shutdown. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy told reporters today that he's optimistic some sort of a deal will be worked out ahead of the September 30th deadline. The California Republican called it crunch time. McCarthy added that he's willing to accept a stopgap funding bill to keep the government running to allow the House more time to finish the appropriations bills. President Biden is joining the United Auto Workers picket line. Brian Shook reports. Biden tweeted that he was going to Michigan Tuesday to stand in solidarity with the workers as the fight for a fair share of the value they helped create. This comes after UAW President Sean Fain announced earlier this week he would send more workers to the picket lines if substantial progress wasn't made with the big three automakers on a new contract. Union workers say they want a 40 % pay increase, cost of living adjustments, and pensions for all workers. I'm Brian Shook. NFL fans who took part in Thursday night's fight at Levi's Stadium could face a lifetime ban. Video of the violence during the 49ers Giants game showed numerous fans in an all -out brawl in the stands with a man grabbing a woman by the hair and throwing her towards a railing. Police say one person was arrested.
Fresh update on "one person" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"Republicans want to work towards a deal to avoid a government shutdown. Speaking with reporters on Capitol Hill Saturday, McCarthy blamed a small group of the most conservative Republicans for the current standoff. He still expects a deal to be worked out calling this crunch time. So I always believe when you get to the final deadlines is when the real crunch comes, so I'm believing in human behavior for those that have been holding out knowing that crunch time's coming. Congress has until September 30th to approve a funding bill that would prevent a government shutdown. The Writers And here's Guild reviewing a deal that the Hollywood studios call their best and final offer. After a hefty day of negotiations Saturday, Guild attorneys are hunkering down combing through deal points for final language on a three -year deal.

A highlight from S13 E12: Wayne: Entrepreneur, Founder, Marketing Expert
"Hello, welcome to The Elone Show. I'm your host, John Mayelone. In this episode, don't have regulars because reasons, I guess. As for our guest, he is from Alexandra, Louisiana. He's an entrepreneur and founder of Ugly Muck Marketing. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, Wayne Mullins. Thank you so much. I'm excited to be here. Me too. So, how's life? Life is fabulous. I think, you know, I'm learning to embrace every day in every moment. To embrace the moments, whether they are what some would consider beautiful or what others may consider ugly. To learn to be present and in the moment. And I think that's the best way to possibly live life. Fantastic. And have you been up to much recently? I have. We are on the work front. We are busy growing. It's our busiest season of the year. So, we've been busy there. My wife and I and our kids were in the process of building a house, which is a little bit deceptive. We're not doing the building, obviously, but lots of decisions around building the house and the finishes and all that kind of stuff. Ah, all right then. Very good. And what was the inspiration and the idea of Ugly Muck Marketing? Yeah. So, the idea and inspiration behind Ugly Muck Marketing was simply this, that I wanted to create a marketing agency that is focused on results as the number one thing that matters. So often in the digital marketing space, in the ad agency space, the thing that so many get distracted by is trying to win awards. And Ugly Muck Marketing, the name actually stems from this quote that is, I would rather an ad that's ugly and effective over one that's beautiful, but isn't. So, that is the mission and that is the calling for what we do at Ugly Muck Marketing. Ah, I like it. And what was life for you growing up? I grew up in, I guess you could say more of rural Louisiana, not across the river, not far from where I'm at right now in an area called Pineville, Louisiana, population roughly 15 ,000 or so. So for me, it was growing up, spent a lot of times out in nature, in the woods, building forts in the woods and just had a lot of fun with friends and yeah, it was great. Okay. Very nice. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? I would live where I'm at right now. I'm a firm believer in this idea that we as human beings, we aren't trees, meaning we can get up and move at any point in time. And I think it's not good for us mentally, emotionally to always long to be somewhere different than where we are. And, you know, if I really wanted to live somewhere else in the world, then I'm of the belief that I should make that happen, that I should get up, that I can move. Yes, there may be obstacles, there may be challenges, there may be all kinds of other things that, quote unquote, get in the way. But again, anything is possible. And we live in a world now where it's easier than ever to up and move to a new location. Couldn't agree more. What's your favorite ice cream topping? I'm going to go with probably strawberries. Interesting. Have you heard of a drink called banana friche? It sounds familiar. I don't know if I've had it, but it does sound familiar. Oh, is that so? It is. I don't know where or why I would have heard of it. OK, interesting, because every guest I've had, I've asked this question a lot to most guests and they said, no, I never heard of it. You are the first person to at least heard of it to some extent. So that's a surprise to me, in my opinion. Yeah, we need the bells and the whistles and like the streamers going off or some fireworks or something, at least, right? Yes, that calls for a celebration. Absolutely. So fill me in. What is it? So it is like a banana flavored drink, which is part smoothie, part milkshake. It's called a tingly sensations that you could possibly think of. Sounds delicious. It sure does. Would you rather never use social media again or never watch another movie or TV show again? Well, I'm going to choose TV because I actually really don't watch TV at all at this point or don't watch movies. And I often joke with people when they meet me or get to know me. I say if you begin the sentence or you begin the question with, have you seen the answer is already going to be no. So don't even ask the question. OK, that makes sense. I would say I would say never watch TV or movies again because I'm mostly on social media looking at stuff anyway. And also, you can watch full length feature films on social media, which is kind of multiple parts. So that's the ultimate cheap code. Yes, indeed. I love it. What's the weather like today where you currently are right now? It is overcast today in a high of only 84 degrees, which is actually a break in the heat from where we've been. So we're we're enjoying the overcast and cooler temps today. Me too. It was pretty hot the last few days, but now we're reaching autumn temperatures now, which is pretty cool. Literally. Well. What is the most comfortable piece of clothing you own? I would say it's a T -shirt that my wife got me for my birthday and it's by a company called One Golden Thread. And I don't know what they made the shirt out of. It's some cotton blend, I believe, but it is incredibly comfortable. Ah, very nice. Do you think a hot dog is a sandwich? I would say absolutely. It comes between two slices of bread or two pieces of bread. But I guess if you want to get really technical, the bread is still enjoined on one end. So you can make an argument in that case that is not technically a sandwich, but there are sandwiches that go in a similar style or similar type of bread. So I'm going to say it is OK. That's a good point, I guess. What hobby would you get into if time and money weren't an issue? Time and money weren't an issue. I would get into surfing. Nice. What could you do a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? Marketing. That makes sense. Would you rather not be able to open closed doors or not be able to close open doors? That's a tough one. I'm going to go with I would rather not be able to close open doors. Nice. It leaves opportunities open for you. Absolutely. Yes, I love it. If you were given 400 acres of land, what would you use it for? I would take some of it. I would make it into a small farm of sorts, enough to produce enough produce for my family and friends. And then I would have a small portion for maybe some farm animals. And then I would love to leave the rest of it very wooded and maybe put a few trails, hiking trails, biking trails through some of that land. OK, that'd be pretty cool. How much time do you spend on the Internet? Way too much. I spend most of my work day on some form of the Internet, whether that is Google Docs, whether that's email or a social media channel. And then unfortunately, I spend too much time of that on social media or on various forms of Internet in the evenings as well. So way too much is the answer. OK. Yes, I agree. I would certainly say the same thing. What is the best way to start the morning? The absolute best way to start the morning is with some meditation and some gratitude. Sweet. Is that all? Or is there more to it? Well, those would be the best. I also love doing some journaling first thing in the morning and reading something that is inspirational, encouraging, something that really helps me set the tone for the day. I believe that our morning is kind of like the rudder, if you will, for the day, like a rudder on a ship determines where the entire massive ship goes. That one little rudder in comparison to the ship. I believe that our morning routines act in that same way. And unfortunately, for so many of us, we are unintentional with our morning routines. We allow the alarm to go off multiple times. We hit snooze, we rush, we hurry, and all of those things fill our minds subconsciously with worry, with stress, with thoughts of I'm late, with thoughts of I'm not going to be on time. All these words and all these feelings that, in my opinion, have a very negative connotation. So, yeah, I think that's that's the rudder for the day. Okay, yes, couldn't agree more.

A highlight from AI Today Podcast: AI Glossary Series Analytics, Data Visualization, Descriptive Analytics, Diagnostic Analytics, Predictive Analytics, Proscriptive / Projective Analytics
"The AI Today podcast, produced by Cognolytica, cuts through the hype and noise to identify what is really happening now in the world of artificial intelligence. Learn about emerging AI trends, technologies, and use cases from Cognolytica analysts and guest experts. Hey, AI Today listeners. Want to dive deeper and get resources to drive your AI efforts further? We've put together a carefully curated collection of resources and tools handcrafted for you, our listeners, to expand your knowledge, dive deeper into the world of AI, and provide you with the essential resources you need. From books and materials, ranging from fundamentals of AI to deep dives on implementing AI projects, to AI ethics, tools, software, checklists, and more, our resources page will help you on your AI journey, whether you're just starting out or you're well on your way. Check it out at aitoday .live slash list. That's aitoday .live slash l -i -s -t. Hello and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host, Kathleen Walch. And I'm your host, Ronald Schmelzer. So I want to tell you a little story. We had someone who completed our cognitive project management for AI training and certification. So for those of you that don't know, we have a methodology that we implement, that we have for running AI projects. And some folks who are project management folks who come from the project management perspective and background really think of CPMI more as like a process. It's a step -by -step approach for running AI projects, and it really focuses on business requirements and starting from business requirements and data requirements, then moving into data prep, and then you build your model once you kind of have that in place. And one of the things that's a core part of it is this thing called the AI go, no go, where you need to have these nine traffic lights, if you want to think of it, that all need to be green. And one of those things is, is do you even know what data you have and whether it's accessible? And this one person had gone through a CPMI project and they realized that they were like in the midst of their AI project and that they didn't even have access and that the team that they wanted to work with didn't want to give them access to that data. And that really was a moment where they're like, well, can I even do this AI project? That meant that they had to go back to the first phase and say, well, do I even have the fundamental business buy -in to make this work? And well, that was worth the entire price, the small price of training and certification because that really got their whole project, they were planning on spending tons and tons of money on, really kind of shifted it. So I just want to point out that part of this glossary series that we're doing here in the AI Today podcast, part of the reason why we have these conversations is that you may know, you may think you know what things are, what they mean, and then you find yourself engaging in it and you have these existential moments and you realize that maybe you don't know what you need to know. So that's part of why we enjoy doing this. We really want to share with you these key insights, this information, we want you to be informed so that you're not going into these projects, even without a basic understanding of some of the common terms that you may think you know, and then run into these problems later on. We want you to truly be successful. And that's why we've been doing the AI Today podcast since 2017, six years and hundreds of podcasts. You know? Exactly. And, you know, from that kind of education mindset, that's why we came up with our AI glossary series and our AI glossary as well. So we link to it always in the show notes and it's available at cognolytica .com. We wanted to present, at least at a high level, key terms related to AI, machine learning and big data so that our listeners and our readers and subscribers and customers at Cognolytica would understand these terms because sometimes they're presented in ways that just are overly complicated, don't make sense, or maybe you didn't understand how some of these terms were related to the larger AI landscape. And that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to help present them and showcase how they are related. So in today's podcast, we're going to be going over the terms analytics, data visualization, and then different types of analytics. So descriptive, diagnostic, predictive analytics, and projective analytics. We do have many podcasts on predictive analytics. It's one of the seven patterns of AI, and we have it in our glossary series as well that we'll link to. But we wanted to share different types of analytics as well in addition to that. So at a high level, first, let's define what analytics is. Well, it's statistical and other methods to gain informational insight from data. Okay, makes sense. And then there's different types of analytics. So we can have descriptive analytics, which is an application of analytics focused on providing an understanding of historical data, relationships, and comparisons. And it's not focused on providing forward -looking projections or analysis. So it's really focused on that kind of what happened. It's looking at historical data, and it's helping answer what happened analysis. Then we have diagnostic analytics, and that's an application of analytics focused on identifying the cause and effect relationship of data. So it's helping us answer and address why did that happen analysis. Then we have predictive analytics. So this is a pattern of AI, as I had mentioned, one of the seven patterns of AI, and an approach that uses past and current data to help humans make future predictions. So examples of predictive analytics could be forecasting, also predictive maintenance. So maybe we're looking at machinery or equipment, trying to figure out when it will break, determination of potential liabilities and risks, and other aspects of determining the future value of data. So again, we're taking that past or current data to help humans make future predictions. And then the last type of analytics we'll be going over is projective or also sometimes called prescriptive analytics. And this is an application of analytics focused on identifying the potential impact of decisions based on current data. So it helps with that what -if analysis.
Fresh update on "one person" discussed on Inside Out with Tami Michaels
"More action on the southern border migrant surge. There's this New meeting York. in The secretary of homeland security Alejandro Mayorkas is now saying that the border is Close he's making that very clear. So he is meeting with the president of Honduras this weekend, and visiting McAllen, Texas, the two discussing ways to reduce irregular migration. This comes after the administration Biden authorized 800 additional troops at the border and granted nearly 500 ,000 Venezuelan migrants temporary legal status so they can work. The number of migrants detained in a single day the by U .S. Border Patrol approached about 9 ,000 on Wednesday, according to U .S. officials.

A highlight from OUTCAST by Gloria Giorno
"Seek and Destroy that has been the theme of discussions of truth now for well I'm in my seventh season here and we started the show on Wynwood radio in Miami 2016 is when I agreed to do the show with them aired the first episode January of 2017 this is Ian Trottier here and today we are going to start talking if you are not familiar with the name Charlotte Iserbit she passed away about a year and a half ago she's a former advisor to the Department of Education under Ronald Reagan her story is very interesting and captivating because she talks about having received a list of these Skull and Bones members via mail that was sent to her father who was a Skull and Bones member at Yale and Anthony Sutton was hot on that trail so two names that you should familiarize yourself with and that is Charlotte Charlotte's work and that is the deliberate dumbing down of America she talks about the invasion of the American education system and that having been formalized under Jimmy Carter back in 1979 Department of Education so she talks about that through her book and then also what I was talking about was Anthony Sutton calling her being hot basically on the trail of dissecting the corruption that is it's really manipulation because Ella Hugh Yale was a major stockholder a main president of the British East Indies trading company that is a Rothschild controlled trading company and the Rothschild funded the American Revolution so I may be off here ladies and gentlemen but if you look at the flag that was flown above the John Paul Jones excuse me the USS Alfred commandeered by John Paul Jones on the Delaware that basically started the American Revolution that flag is basically identical to the British East Indies company flag and then that you trace that and you go back to Cambridge Massachusetts and something called the flag committee which is Continental Congress approved Washington Franklin adopted what became the first flag of the United what became known as the United States and that was the US Grand Union flag which as being designed by Betsy Ross that is the US Grand Union flag which is identical to the British East Indies company flag because that is where the financing came to fund Washington's army and then you ask well wait a second that's English and well yeah this it is English but it's not English because London the city of London is not technically part of England it is its own banking it's sovereign nation a Roman banking colony still in existence these are all facts and you can cross -check them but anyway so seek and destroy corruption that is how I that is that is how I theme my discussions my conversations my talks it's what I do in Trottier with discussions truth today we're gonna talk about the Department of Education rather the state of the education system in the United States so quickly before we bring the guests on we'll be we'll be talking to Gloria Giorno and her son Stevie and getting their view as conservatives what it's been like for Stevie to go through I think it's Belmont University as a conservative so without further ado thanks for tuning in for the podcast on and we're bringing on Gloria and Stevie right now calling Laurie and Stevie this is Ian Trottier for Discussions of Truth Gloria hi nice to meet meet you and welcome to Discussions of Truth I've looked at some of the work that you're you've excellent hi Stevie so thanks for for joining the the the show and please give listeners an introduction to who you are Gloria you can start tell listeners who you are what you what you do and then and then Stevie you can do the same please I try to destroy a young conservative and I also did a nonprofit the name of it is United Women Foundation what we do is mentor employ aid and young conservative women who are in Stevie's situation and we also give out scholarships to conservatives who are not in need of a scholarship but who are conservatives and who are promoting the conservative agenda in their lives thank you Gloria and that's United Women Foundation calm I'll go ahead and put a link to that in the episode Stevie go ahead and introduce yourself for us please well thank you very much for having us on my name is Stevie Giorno and I serve as the chairman of the Tennessee Young Republicans and I am the former student body president at Belmont University where I was attacked by the radical left for being proud of my country and being proud to be an American on the 4th of July in 2020 during the as a mother for protecting your your family and your country I've looked at the website I've looked a little bit about both of you and what's interesting is you have been you've come my way and your stories come my way through a contact there in Florida and your Stevie your story is daughter went through something very similar and in her university classes but Stevie go ahead and tell us a little bit about about what you experienced you were the student body president at Belmont University yet you were attacked for your political views isn't that right picture of myself in front of the White House and I captioned it that I was proud to be an American and I thanked those who had sacrificed and served so that we may have the freedoms and liberties that our forefathers intended for us and within 24 hours my fraternity was blackmailing me threatening to label me a racist and remove me from the fraternity there were hundreds of comments on my Instagram post and there were hundreds of signatures on a change .org petition that sought to remove me as the duly elected student body president even though I was elected unanimously with almost 99 98 % of the vote and so it was really bad that students friends of mine my fraternity brothers wanted to attack me because I was proud to be from this country you know my grandparents escaped from communism in Yugoslavia and my mother lived there for a year so I've heard the first -hand horrors of what happens in a communist country and I fear that our country is headed that way every single day. Now what's interesting is one of the articles that I that I went through briefly was is written by Campus Reform it's published on an online newsletter called Campus Reform and one of the stories that they have today actually talks about glorifying Che you Guevara know this is a this is a socialist figure that that helped with the with the cubist Cuban communist revolution and Fidel Castro you're you're talking about your family having come from communist Yugoslavia are you seeing are you seeing Stevie in in in in your experience on on campus now I don't know what you're doing now maybe you graduated you can bring us up to date with where you at right now but are you seeing some of these same the same signs that that perhaps your mother or your grandparents were talking about that were that were red flags for for communism growing within the country are you seeing that experiencing that I do and I think unfortunately it is getting worse specifically at Belmont University they refused the school is refusing to allow a turning point USA chapter on campus I think it it's it's it's awful it's an infringement on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech and freedom of belief to protest to assemble and so it's really unfortunate what's going on with with colleges and universities I graduated in the spring of 2021 but I have heard of the horror stories happening at private Christian schools so -called Christian schools happening across the country and until students and parents and grandparents begin to see what is happening you know the first step to solving a problem is acknowledging it exists and it's there and it's not going to get better until enough conservative students and parents realize that they need to stop funding the indoctrination machines of universities and change course well it's very brave of you to say that glory I want want to get your your view and and and I want to first first say this I opened this show up before I brought you on with talking about somebody named Charlotte Iserbyt and I'm happy to send you her link to her book it's called the deliberate dumbing down of America what she did was she started dissecting what was happening under the Reagan administration with the attack on the indoctrination that we're seeing fruits of today a few decades later but Gloria did you did you ever expect or suspect that something like this might happen to your son I I he gets into college were there any anything anything happening up to that time where he's now the student body president of Belmont University anything before that that you were that you questioned well you know hey they he might he might need to defend himself or was this a complete surprise to you it was a complete surprise there was absolutely nothing the handbook the literature the online documentation about Belmont University everything fit a conservative Christian agenda there was nothing I mean personally I think it's a bait and switch but there was absolutely nothing I was friends with some of the professors who are conservatives at Belmont or who were conservatives at Belmont and we had spoken for two years before Stevie made the decision to go there and no there was not any kind of indication that anything like this would happen now we would never allowed our son to want to go to a school where he would have been threatened for his beliefs I mean he had been working for Republican candidates since he was 17 years old so it was out in the open it's on his LinkedIn it's public so no I mean we we were told on every tour we were told at every meeting that this was a fully free campus there would be no harassment it was Christian it was conservative and I read the handbook and Stevie followed all the guidelines when these things did start to occur he did follow all the guidelines he followed all the rules he turned everything into administration and they did nothing absolutely nothing and Stevie yeah go ahead to this day they have not responded in any way shape or form nothing and this has been three years now so you have not gotten a formal response from the school administration Stevie you're simply in DC taking a photograph outside the White House expressing your gratitude for the country and the values that it stands for did you ever suspect this type of backlash coming from the because he knew that if he spoke out against them that they would send him to a camp where he'd never be heard from again and really that whole year of 2020 was either you agree with everything we're saying you endorse the BLM organization but we're gonna do everything we can to destroy you and in fact because Tennessee is a single -party consent state that means you can record conversations with only one person knowing I did record those conversations with my fraternity which my mom put into her book and in those conversations my fellow friends my fraternity brothers say if you do not apologize for your post if you do not endorse this group we're gonna do whatever it takes to destroy you and your career and your reputation so it's a more mild form of what happens in communist countries but because these students were not held accountable it is only going to get worse and worse and it did I mean there was one instance where a female student who worked at a fast -food restaurant I would go to for my breakfast in the mornings she admitted in the official College Democrat group text that she was putting quote gross stuff in my drinks every single day because I was a an awful conservative who loved this country and one endorsed the BLM organization and the school guess what the school did when I turned her in what did they do they accepted her into Belmont law school you gotta be kidding me I'm serious 100 % she was rewarded for attacking a political opponent and I think that's dangerous as we see what's going on with President Trump he is being attacked because he's leading in the polls and it's truly unfortunate that we're becoming a banana republic yeah did the did she make you sick with whatever she put in the drinks and we couldn't even get the Nashville police who are unfortunately very short staff due to the liberal City Council and the liberal mayor at the time unfortunately they were they were unable to investigate it because I was perfectly fine thankfully but they said since there was no lasting issues that they refused to investigate and then the school accepted this girl into law school with full knowledge of everything she had done struck so it it shows the systemic problem we're having and imagine if this is happening in a conservative Christian private university in Nashville Tennessee one of the most conservative states imagine what's going on in all 49 other states we don't have the ability to record conversations and to take screenshots of texts and emails and and have such transparency I mean it's terrifying to think what's happening in these other colleges yeah very well said Stevie tell us about that book and tell us about how tell us about how it's been received my husband and I we want to speak out on this we want people to know I need parents and grandparents to know what their children and yes very teen but there still are children what they face and what they are up against when they go away to school we need for parents to fight back we need for parents to take a stand if 40 % of students stopped attending their respective universities you know that the agenda at universities with administration would change so we as conservatives we have that title of being silent majority because usually we are silent well Stevie and I wanted to change that hence the book I use I feel that the book is an educational tool for parents learn from what happened to my son learn from the experience that we've had we went to this university many times it's not far from our home we investigated it we knew people who worked there who taught there and never once did we feel that it was going to be a threat to our son and look what happened so whatever you're seeing I dread to think what's going on at public schools I just dread but I want parents to learn learn read the book you'll see everything is documented in there as my son said fortunately we're able to record and we're able to use everything for information but we need for parents to be more active in their students and their children's educations even when they are at college because they are all indoctrination facilities I did live in a communist country I went to first grade in Zagreb which was then Yugoslavia in 1972 and I can tell you that on my way to school my walk to school every morning I had 1 ,000 US dollars in my backpack I knew if civil unrest broke out at the age of six I knew how to get out of Yugoslavia get into a cab that was waiting for me at the end of the hill and that cab driver would take me to the border of Yugoslavia in Italy where one of my aunts would meet me and my parents would come when they were able I also knew the police officer on the corner he wasn't there for me he wasn't there to make sure that I'd be safe or anybody else he was definitely there to protect the communist regime and Josip Tito who was the dictator at the time and the parallels that I saw with what I experienced living in a communist country and what my son endured at Belmont University it's there if it's clear as day and I want to enlighten everyone who wants to hear from me I want all parents to know this is happening in our country now too we are being silenced and shut down the title of the book folks is outcast how the radical left tried to destroy a young conservative and that is Stevie so Stevie was this a the attack on you was this coming from the BLM movement at Belmont University or in Nashville have you identified the nucleus of where this attack came from okay so let me ask you a broader question we saw during the Trump Tifa uprisings mainly Seattle Portland but obviously across the country Chicago New York but that coincided with this this COVID -19 virus outbreak as a as a university student you've now graduated but Stevie were you were you drawing any parallels to either of these things happening during the Trump administration that seemingly linked to a communist revolt within the country does that making sense were you able to draw any connect any dots Stevie we know from history that it usually doesn't work that way and the government's gonna keep taking more and more of our rights and when you couple that with what is happening what did happen in 2020 with with the riots and people getting away with committing crimes to where if you and I or anyone else who was a conservative did burn down a courthouse like they did in Nashville or protest and kill innocent people in the streets we would go to jail however because they were advancing a political movement that the liberal district attorneys in big cities supported they were let go and they were not punished like they should have been like we would have been so the hypocrisy is terrible I think it does parallel communism to where you know if you remember the black shirts Mussolini's black shirts taking control of the Italian government because they were the advancing political agenda and movement that the powers that be wanted them to they were able to harass and intimidate people into supporting them and I fear that our country is going that way and we need people to stand up now if we're ever hoping to take back our country and get it back on the right track and under control Gloria the book is recently published it looks like it was just published last month and you've got us forward by Sam Sorbo how's the reception of the book been so far what are people saying who have you spoke to about it how is it being received lot Gloria a of media outlets that are reaching out to us I'm being asked to speak almost on a daily basis different organizations different groups Stevie and I have traveled to a lot of different states throughout the country and we will continue to be touring and we are I have started a conversation and parents are now extending that conversation with their friends and that is the goal we need to start with one person talking to another and now the growth has been exponential it's incredible the book is selling very well it's available on Amazon and wherever books are sold but from what I have witnessed and the calls I am getting yes it is and I mean if we as conservatives don't speak up we're gonna be done this is it and if America Falls there is nowhere else to go and our children are being indoctrinated I don't care what level of schooling it's that they're being indoctrinated on every single level and if parents do not set a strong foundation in the household when the child is born and continue that throughout a child's life when they go to college always we will not be America any longer so the book is being well received I do have parents who have reached out to me and who have asked me questions likewise I do have some haters but that's how I know I'm making a difference because the hate is there as well yeah absolutely well said it's like when you went once you're censored you know that you're putting up the correct information on the online right Stevie are you concentrating on any particular campuses as you tour the country you point of a Christian organization and unfortunately they they canceled the meeting that was going to happen at Belmont and so been trying to help the students out there at Belmont but really I think the key thing is getting in front of as many young people as possible who are conservative and letting them know that they're not alone that the hardships they're going through have happened before and they're gonna happen again and we've got to stand up tall for what we believe in and we can't be scared of people saying mean things about us or what people put on social media or what they may say to us we've got to stand up for what we believe in if there's any chance of saving our country thank you very much let me ask you this question Gloria as we as we wind down and then I want to give each of you an opportunity to leave listeners with some final words and thoughts but Gloria as somebody who's lived in a communist country and it sounded like you did at least one year schooling their first grade what's happening right now to the border of your country what's happening down there they believe they have freedom and to an extent they do and I equate it to when I speak I speak to a lot of young people because young people are what United Women Foundation is mostly about and so when I speak I they look at me very oddly when I tell my story but what I have found that works very well is I bring up a lion at a zoo and he's in a zoo he's caged his needs are met he has food he has shelter he has water he has medical attention and it's all for free but he is still in that cage but he is able to roam in that cage correct and then we have the next picture a lion picture lion in Wyoming in Montana anywhere in this country roaming freely that lion bends for himself he finds his own food he finds his own shelter he finds his own water he takes care of himself that lion is independent to me that is the difference that is the bottom line that is the difference between communism and America that is the difference between our constitution is that lion that is roaming free throughout this country and that's what we are right now so that is something that I think resonates with young people and I I believe that putting it in a perspective of a picture like that they are beginning to understand a little bit I hope at least I mean I don't know right now what I'm seeing is a lot of people have said we cannot have an opinion because we have not experienced it which truly breaks my heart my family in Croatia thinks that they are free in effect my family basically is a caged lion yeah incredible and and let me review what is happening right now at the southern border in in the U .S.

A highlight from S17E4: Following Your Intuition (in Dating) w/ Nikki Novo
"Hi, I'm Yui Xu. And I'm Julie Kraftchick. We're active daters turned dating sociologists. Here to dive into everything modern dating and relationships. Welcome to the dateable podcast. Hi, hi, hi. Welcome back to another brand new episode. This is a repeat guest, but someone who we talk about constantly. She changed my life. Not only does she change your life, but she's been on our mind for three years since the last time we spoke to her. And I couldn't believe it when I was looking at how long I had been since she'd been on the podcast. And I was like, wait, feels like we just spoke to her yesterday because I think about her constantly. That's so weird. I also think about her constantly. She is my secret girl crush as well. Who are we talking about? Nikki Novo. Nikki Novo, we had her on the podcast back in 2020 season 11, episode 14. What's holding you back? So she's an intuitive, she's an author. She wrote a fabulous new book and she did readings for us. So she did readings back in 2020. And for me, I was at a very pivotal point that I had just ended my relationship with my on again, off again boyfriend of five years. We had done that final in COVID. We're either doing this or we're not. All the same issues came back and I realized that I wasn't doing this and actually, okay, so another part of why Nikki Novo is so important in my life that I'm not even sure if I really fully shared is with my ex. One of the things that was really challenging with that relationship is that he was very hot and cold. Like it was like, I'm in love with you. I want to be with you. And then I need my space. I need time alone. And that was really hard for me. Like I did not do well with the inconsistency. And of course he did that again. It was like we had this wonderful time together and then it was, I need that space. And I went to the park and I was so like upset about this cause I'm like, here we go again. It's the same shit happening. And I read Nikki Novo's book, The Final Swipe, her first book, because we were prepping to have her on the podcast. And I remember reading the book and I was just like, I don't want this relationship anymore. And that was such a turning point for me. I think it was like that final turning point for me. Like I had been building that up for a while and then like reading that, like reading whatever she wrote resonated with me so much. And I like came home and I'm like, I don't want to do this anymore. No, no. That was The Final Swipe. It was The Final Swipe. It was done. It was done. Well, she has this way of just putting thoughts in such a clear framework. That it's not like it's new for you. It's not like those the first time you ever thought about this as being this being final. But she just puts it in a way that you're like, yeah, of course. Like, I don't want this. If you put it that way, I don't want this in my life. And this is the final straw or the final swipe. So I appreciate her clarity in the way she expresses herself. And when she did my reading, you know, I was like, just celebrate my two year anniversary. We were kind of fighting that whole weekend on our anniversary trip about what is the future. And she said, listen, no need to be so anxious. You are going to live a non -traditional life. Your path is non -traditional. So stop trying to fit into that traditional future that you see. I was like, done. That's all I need to hear. That's really interesting because like I OK, like in the moment, of course, when you were going through that and you had that reading, you were really trying to make it work with your ex. And I heard that as like maybe you don't get married, but you have like a non -traditional life with him. But now, like looking at where it's going, that could just be a lot broader than with him. Yes. Yes. And I think it was still applied to our relationship. We had a pretty non -traditional trajectory. But, you know, when this relationship ended, I was like, that doesn't need to be the path I go on, you know, and her words came back to me and I was like, yes, I'm meant for a non -traditional life. I know. And, you know, because when I did the reading, I just ended this relationship and then I was really at a crossroads of, OK, what's next? And she really gave me hope that this was my year, that the person was around the corner. You know, I did end up meeting my partner in that year from that reading. It was like my year around my birthday, as she predicted. But more than anything, it was the mindset shift it gave me. It was the fact that I had the confidence that it was going to happen. It was just a matter of when, not if. And I think that was like a big shift for me, because in the past, like I definitely had that thought, like, what if it never happens for me or what if I never meet this person? And just changing that mentality, going into every date and being like, OK, is it this person? And if it's not, then just being like, OK, it's going to be the next person. And she did warn me, too, of, you know, you're going to go through that like rocky time. And I definitely did. I was able to get through it because I didn't get discouraged. And it kind of goes back to that perseverance again. Like, I think that's so important of you just keep going because, OK, I don't think dating is a numbers game in the sense that you need to be dating all these people at once. And, you know, you really have to be like churning through people in the sense of knowing what works for you. I do think getting clear is probably more time effective than going on date after date after date with no clarity and no intention. But I do think you have to be realistic that in today's world, the first person you swipe on is not going to be your partner for life. Like, right. I probably went on like 500 dates before I met my partner. I think that's what we calculated when we did the episode with your friend, you know, rough back of the napkin math. But, you know, like I probably swiped on like 10 ,000 people. What do you think about it? Like this didn't happen overnight. So you have to kind of go through it. But that knowing knowing that it's going to happen, it made me approach dating a lot more positively. Yeah. And it does make you think, too, because I think we should give that advice to you. It's like everybody who does come into your orbit serves a reason. Yeah. So if they're not the right person for you, you can still learn something from them and then move on from it because that's not your person. It's like not time wasted. And we're not just like sitting around waiting for that person to show up at our doorsteps. We still got to be out there learning from people with people before we meet the right person, which is a mindset I'm in now because it was I again foray back into dating. I've been a little gun shy with online dating, but now I'm going on this. I'm taking myself on a romantic trip to Greece. Yes. And I'm going to be taking all the condoms with me because I feel like maybe, you know, dating abroad, strangers, no strings attached. Maybe the best way to get myself back into some sort of like a romantic mindset. You know, I don't need to think about the future. No, I just think about the now and have a great time. That's where you are right now. And like, I think as long as your mindset is open and positive, then you'll attract people into that orbit. Yeah, for sure. Into my web, my sex web. I'm just like picturing you on this cruise, like, you know, like Titanic style, just like in the front of trolling for a day.

Massive shout out to everyone today in the live chat. Please let me know where you're tuning in from. And at the end of the show, I'm going to be reading everyone's comments out loud. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch as we do each and every day, the entire crypto market back in the green with Bitcoin back above $27 ,100 and checking out coinmarketcap .com, the current crypto market cap on the climb at $1 .08 trillion with roughly $27 billion in volume for the past 24 hours, Bitcoin dominance at 49 .2 % and the Ether dominance at 18 .4%.

And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers of the past week, virtually 95 out of the top 100 cryptos are in the green. Some of the top gainers include GMX, GRT, as well as CRV and NEO. And checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated at 46 in fear, same as 37 in fear. So there you have it. How many of you are pretty stoked for this most recent pump? And how many of you agree with Stacey Herbert that this pump is due to Bukele's speech scheduled for this evening? Let me know, fam. And now let's dive into today's Bitcoin technical analysis. Check out the charts and what's popping with the king crypto. Bitcoin could see fresh upside volatility as the price action and the strength revisits a key level according to a classic metric. In a new post, John Bollinger, creator of the Bollinger Bands volatility indicator, says Bitcoin was positioned for a breakout decision. That's right. After hitting new September highs the day prior, Bitcoin has been challenging resistance levels out of reach since mid -August, according to data from Cointelegraph and TradingView. Now for Bollinger, the signs for Bitcoin are encouraging. Bollinger Bands use a standard deviation around the simple moving average to determine both the likely price ranges and volatility. And as Michael Saylor once said, volatility equals life force. Now, currently Bitcoin is putting in daily candles that touch the upper band. And when this happens, it can signal an imminent reversal back to the center band, or conversely, an inbound fit of upside volatility. Now narrow Bollinger Bands seen on Bitcoin recently lend weight to hopes that the latter scenario will now play out, quitting him here. And then there is the first tag of the upper Bollinger Band. After the new set of controlling bars were established at the lower band, he commented alongside this chart, the question is now, can we walk up to the upper band or is it too early to answer? What are your thoughts, chat? Let me know in the comments below. Now Bollinger characterizes the current mood among seasoned Bitcoin traders and analysts on the short -term timeframes. Despite the strength seen this week, caution abounds as various trend lines previously acting as support remain above the spot price. Now discussing the situation, we had on -chain monitoring resource, material indicators share the following. We have heavy technical resistance overhead at the key moving averages and support at the lower low. It is quite possible that we round trip the range. And with any luck, we'll see a legit test of the RS levels that will give us some clarity on where Bitcoin goes from here before the end of the week. And they also shared here in update number two, as noted earlier, it appears the Bitcoin bulls are gaining some momentum, but things are not always as they seem and goes on to share that sometime after last night's candle and close open, we've seen a new trend precognition signal develop on the daily chart and it seems to be bullish. I mean, we are breaking out. We are above 27 ,000. So let's freaking go. And also more strong foundation on the technicals. You can see Bitcoin hits yet another all -time high, which virtually means the network has never been this strong and this secure. Now I'm pretty stoked to tune into President Bukele's speech to the UN this evening. What do you think he has to share besides? I told you so. Let me know, fam. And again, welcome to everyone just joining us for the live show. Lots to continue to cover. So let's continue breaking it down. Next, let's discuss this adoption fund, which is a pretty big deal coming out of Japan. Let's go check this out. Japan's largest investment bank, Numura's digital asset subsidiary, Laser Digital Asset Management, launched the Bitcoin adoption fund specifically for the institutional investors. Bring it. The official announcement noted the Bitcoin -based fund will be the first in a range of digital adoption investment solutions that the firm plans to introduce. Now Numura is a Japanese financial giant with over $500 billion worth of assets, which basically that's half a trillion, baby, offers brokerage services to leading institutional investors. The Bitcoin fund launched by its digital asset arm will now offer investors direct exposure to BTC. The Laser Digital Bitcoin Adoption Fund offers long key exposure to Bitcoin. The financial giant has chosen Kamanu as its regulated custody partner. The Bitcoin fund is a portion of Laser Digital Fund's segregated portfolio company that has been registered as a mutual fund in accordance with the Cayman Islands regulatory authority. Now, Laser Digital Asset Management head Sebastian said the Bitcoin is one of the enablers of this long -lasting transformational change and long -term exposure to Bitcoin offers a solution for the investors to capture this macro trend. Now, the Bitcoin adoption fund might be the first of its kind launched by Numura and the digital asset arm, but the Japanese investment banking giant has been investing in the digital asset ecosystem for quite some time already. In fact, September of last year, the firm launched its digital asset venture capital arm to stay at the forefront of digital innovation. And also won Dubai's virtual asset regulatory authority license to operate in the country. The long -only Bitcoin adoption fund for investors in Japan comes amid a growing discussion around Bitcoin -based investment products from regulated and mainstream financial giants. The United States SEC approved two Bitcoin ETFs, even though there is a delayed decision specifically on the spot. Bitcoin ETFs. What's up with that, Mr. Gensler? Just saying. And apart from the US, Canada and focused investment products over the past couple of years. So there you have it, mass adoption, let's freaking go, especially on the institutional level. How many of you are in Japan? I know we have some in our audience out there. Let me know. And have you ever heard of this company before? Any plans in investing through them? Let me know how you guys feel. And now let's break down the latest. It gets more surprising and shocking every day with what all is going on with Bankman -Fried and FTX. Now his parents are involved. His parents are being sued by FTX. And it's just a nightmare of a mess, to say the least. So let's break down this latest story regarding SBF. Now, Joseph Bankman, the father of the former FTX CEO, Sam Bankman -Fried, complained to his son about the salary he was receiving during his employment at FTX US, turning the issue into a family matter. In a September 18 filing with the US Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, FTX debtors filed a complaint against Bankman and Barbara Fried, alleging that SBF's parents misappropriated millions of dollars through their involvement in the exchange's business. And according to the court documents, Bankman's contract with FTX US should have provided a $200 ,000 annual salary following a leave of absence from the Stanford Law School in December 2021. However, Bankman seemed to express ignorance about the terms of the contract, claiming to both FTX US and his son that he was expecting a $1 million annual salary. What about all that property in the Bahamas, fam? What about all that? Hundreds of millions worth of properties? Just wanted to throw that out there. The complaint states that Bankman was putting Barbara on this, suggesting that SBF's mother may have been able to persuade her son to follow through with the salary change. Things get even more interesting. So according to the complaint, Bankman's influence paid off, with SBF later providing his parents $10 million from Alameda Research. Can you talk about commingling? A 16 .4 million property in the Bahamas, funded by FTX Trading, the ability to expense roughly $90 ,000 to FTX Trading on the island nation in the Bahamas, and options to purchase company stock. Now, when reached out to the legal team representing Bankman and Fried, but did not receive a response at the time, unfortunately, the legal action brought by the debtors was the latest in the bankruptcy case involving FTX and many of its subsidiaries filed in November of last year. Bankman Fried also faces 12 criminal charges to be spread across two trials, starting in October of 2023, which is right around the corner, fam, and March of 2024, right before the halving, scheduled for April of next year. And since the federal judge revoked his bail in August, Bankman Fried has been largely confined to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. Where's Brooklyn at? Before the start of his October trial, then on September 19th, a three -judge panel heard an appeal from SPF's legal team requesting the former FTX CEO to be released from jail in order to prepare for the trial, citing the lack of internet access and first amendment issues. All I got to say is this, I mean, how many people realistically have access to the internet in jail? Why should he? Million dollar question right there. But what are your thoughts, fam? How do you think this is likely to play out? And do you think that Bankman Fried's parents are just as guilty as SPF himself with the commingling and the fraud of going up north of $30 billion, making it the biggest scam in history that we're aware of? Hence why we call him Mini Madoff, because he made off with billions of dollars worth of investors' money, and Gary Gensler and the SEC was protecting him behind closed doors. So it's going to be very interesting to see how all this is likely to play out. Now let's discuss post halving. We all know there is a halving scheduled roughly six months out. We all know post halving, the price action is most likely going to reach a new all -time high and enter price discovery mode. Well, this analyst shares a very intriguing target. So let's break this down, shall we? And welcome to y 'all just joining us. Say hello in that live chat. Let me know where you're tuning in from. I stream live here seven days a week from Puerto Rico. Synonymous analyst Rhett Capital tells his followers on X that Bitcoin can rally above $80 per ,000 coin in the months following next month's event. For the halving, send it. Let's go. The Bitcoin halving cuts the Bitcoin miners' rewards in half, as we all know, expected to take place in April of next year. And while Rhett Capital is a long -term bull on Bitcoin, he notes that it is possible for Bitcoin to continue its downtrend before the halving, putting him here. Hang in there and make the most of any deeper downside in this pre halving period. You won't see the post halving parabola in the outlines here in this chart. It shows you in the yellow, the pre halving period, then in the pink, the post halving resistance, and then in the green, you can see the post halving parabola when we hit those new all -time highs. Now, Rhett notes that Bitcoin may repeat its 2019 bear market cycle when it traded within a triangle pattern before breaking out and starting off the bull market, as he shares here, if Bitcoin continues to form lower highs, could Bitcoin fill the CME, which is the Chicago Mercantile Exchange gap, at $20 ,000 later this year or in early 2024? So it makes a good point. There is currently a gap sitting at that $20 ,000 psychological level. And he continues, if so, the possible path could be consolidation to the apex of the black triangle before finally breaking out to close the halving. And you can see that triangle right here in this chart. Now, looking at the chart, he seemed to suggest that Bitcoin will confirm the triangle breakout in April of 2024, followed by a rally towards his long -term target. Now, let me know your thoughts, chat. How many of you agree that Bitcoin is likely to break out to a new all -time high, entering price discovery mode in 2024, the year of the halving? Let me know. And what are some of your targets? I'd also like to point out that the Stock the Flow model and Plan B, creator of that model, he suggests a $100 to $1 million range price for the King Crypto post halving. We also have some very other bullish predictions, which I cover on a daily basis here on the channel. But I'd love to know your personal prediction. I think we reached the cycle peak personally sometime in 2025, but I think 2024, we enter that price discovery mode. But I'd love to know your thoughts and your opinions in the comments right down below. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss the latest from the macro guru, Raoul Pal, who is suggesting that the Bitcoin market cap and crypto market cap as a whole does something between 5 and 10x for this upcoming bull cycle. Now, you do the math. We have a crypto market cap right now. I'm going to ballpark it at a trillion. We have a Bitcoin market cap. I'm going to ballpark it at a half a trillion, which is 500 billion. So hypothetically, if we were to 10x Bitcoin in and of itself, we're talking about a 5 trillion dollar Bitcoin market cap, which would be half the current market cap of gold. Now, with the entire crypto market cap, we can potentially hit 10 trillion. Now, also note, back in November of 2021, when we hit that all time high of 69 ,000 in November of last year, the total crypto market cap was just north of that 3 trillion dollar market cap. So he's so let's break this down and shout out to Raoul Pal. Here we go. Former Goldman Sachs executive Raoul Pal says the next bull cycle can bring an explosion in the market cap of all of the digital assets. That's right. In a new interview with Altcoin Daily, the macro expert says he expects a huge increase in the adoption of digital assets, and that can cause the total market cap of crypto to skyrocket as much as 900 % from its current value during the next bull market. Quoting the analysts here, obviously, I think we'll go well through new all time highs. I think the whole ecosystem of crypto will go from 425 million users where we're at today. And I think at the end of this cycle, there'll be a billion users by that kind of use cases in which we have talked about. And let's not forget, we have got central bank digital currencies that are known as CBDCs and stable coins. There is a lot going on still. So if this entire space is going to grow 2 .5 X in the number of users, well, the market cap of the entire space is five or 10 X. Send it. Let's go. Pal also says he is closely watching development of layer two Altcoin projects for new use cases, which could boost the value of their individual market cap, quitting him again. And then let's see how people value layer twos in this. We don't really know how layer twos accrue much value. Do we have to have a massive amount of transactions in which case then you need stuff like Ticketmaster with millions and millions and millions of transactions to drive value to those chains because they batched them and batched them down to Ethereum. So there you have it. And to watch this interview, he did Raul Pal, the macro guru with Altcoin Daily entitled best cryptocurrency investing strategy into 2024. Check the show notes, blow the video in the description and let me know your thoughts on his personal prediction. Do you feel post having that the market cap for the entire crypto market can likely 10 X from the current valuation along with Bitcoin surging 10 X to roughly a five trillion market cap? And hypothetically, if the macro guru is correct, where do you think that would likely take the Bitcoin price? Well, let's run some hypothetical math. Bitcoin was the 10 X from the current price action of 27 ,000. Well, that's $270 ,000 per coin. Take that. And as we all know, Bitcoin rises like that, the entire crypto market cap would go along for the ride, including the altcoin. So please let me know in the chat, fam, which altcoins, if any, are you most bullish on in the crypto market? And what are your thoughts surrounding Raul Pal being so bullish on Solana? A few months back, I read in an interview he shared that 80 % or more of his portfolio was specifically in an altcoin called Solana. So I'd love to know your thoughts. Obviously, he has a high risk tolerance as I look at that particular cryptocurrency to be very risky, especially with all that went in with the venture capitalists and SPF and FTX exchange pumping that particular all. So I'd love to know how you feel regarding all of that. And with that being shared, fam, now let's discuss Peter Thiel and his $4 million price prediction, as well as rumor has it, and I'll be covering this as well, that he dumps most of his Bitcoin position at the top of the market practically 30 days before the crash. So let's break this down because Peter Thiel was actually one of the keynote speakers at the Miami Conference for Bitcoin. And here's what he had to share as I transcribed his speech, and then we'll discuss him reportedly making $1 .8 billion cashing out on his eight -year bet around the time he was touting these all -time high predictions. So here we go. He says, the enemy's list is a list of people who I think are stopping Bitcoin. He says there is a lot of them. They tend to have nameless, faceless bureaucratic perspectives, which of course is one of the ways they hide. He goes on to share, we are going to try to expose them and realize that this is sort of what we have to fight for Bitcoin to go up, 10x or 100x from here. Now, just FYI, to give you some perspective, at the time he made this prediction on stage at the Bitcoin Miami Conference, Bitcoin was trading at roughly $43 ,000 per coin. So you run the math. 43 ,000 times 100x is over $4 million per Bitcoin. So you know that? Let's continue with what he had to share. The central banks are going bankrupt. We are at the end of the fiat money regime. How many of you agree with that statement? I agree there 100%. The first person on the list is Berkshire Hathaway CEO, Warren Buffett. Thiel put up a picture of Buffett with two of his most famous quotes about Bitcoin. One was rat poison and the other, I don't own any and I never will. I also like to point out now since then, Warren Buffett has much indirect exposure to Bitcoin through Bitcoin mining stock companies and etc. So go figure. If you can't beat them, join them, right? And he goes on. He opined, I think the direct in it. Yeah, and I say also Charlie Munger goes along with him. Now, feel further noted that Buffett has a bias and makes him long on fiat money system and money managers who follow the Berkshire Hathaway executives advice will pretend it's complicated to invest into Bitcoin. I think we call that FUD. Fear, uncertainty and doubt. Now expect nothing less from one of the wealthiest people in the fiat money matrix Ponzi scheme. You know what I mean? So just saying. The next person on the list of Bitcoin's enemies is the one and only JP Morgan Chase CEO, Jamie Dimon, or as Max Kaiser calls him, Jamie the tapeworm. They'll put diamonds picture up with the following quote. I don't call them crypto currencies. I call them crypto tokens because currencies have rules of law behind them, central banks and tax with authorities. Now you guys already know how I feel personally about JP Morgan Chase CEO, Jamie Dimon. So I won't go any deeper there. But anyways, we know he's an enemy of Bitcoin and always has been. The next picture he put up was of the BlackRock CEO, Larry Fink, with the following quote. I see huge opportunities in a digitized crypto blockchain related currency, and that's where I think it is going to go. Now just FYI, Larry Fink is the CEO of the largest asset management firm in the entire world, which owns a large share in virtually all the companies in the S &P 500, and that is BlackRock. They currently have over $10 trillion in assets under management. And for a long time, he was spreading FUD regarding Bitcoin. But guess what? Like I mentioned earlier, if you can't beat them, join them because they just most recently, a few months ago, they submitted their application for a spot Bitcoin ETF, which ultimately means they're going to be introducing this to the institutions which have trillions upon trillions of dollars as there's currently north of $700 trillion in total addressable market, and they want their piece of the Bitcoin pie. So he goes on to share, the PayPal co -founder added that Fink's quote is somewhat representative of the whole genre of Bitcoin attacks that need further context, stating that pro -blockchain is an anti -Bitcoin term, very typically. Feel then brought up the environmental, social, and governance, ESG standards, elaborating the following, the label they have come up with, and perhaps the real enemy is ESG. I think that ESG is just a hate factory. Also like to throw out there, Elon Musk, he stopped taking Bitcoin payments for Tesla, and he says it's because of the FUD regarding this ESG, and we all know it's not more than FUD, and it's already been proven that Bitcoin is more than 50 % clean energy. So the million dollar question, when will the world's supposedly wealthiest man, Elon Musk, when will he start accepting Bitcoin payments again for Tesla? Isn't that a great question, and wouldn't you love to know the answer to that? Maybe you should ask Elon and tag him on X and see what he says. Anyways, feel stressed. You can always ask the question, what's the difference between ESG and the CCP, the Chinese Communist Party? Well, when you think ESG, you should be thinking of CCP per H. Now, he also goes on to share, it is the finance gentocracy that runs the country through whatever silly virtue signaling or hate factory to them, just like ESG, the billionaire concluded. This is what I would call and what you have to think of as a revolutionary youth movement, and we have to just go out from this conference and take over the world. So there you have it, fam. What are your thoughts surrounding Peter Thiel's prediction that we are likely to 100X, and along with his enemies list, as it seems, a lot of the enemies have come around and now have direct exposure to BTC, but it doesn't stop there because around that time he was making this $4 million Bitcoin price prediction. He allegedly dumped most of his position cashing out and with over a billion dollars in profits for his fund. So let's also break this down as this is also very relevant. How many of you were able to watch the speech he gave at that Bitcoin conference? It was epic, to say the least. I recall it now. So here we go. Check it out. Peter Thiel's venture capital firm reportedly made $1 .8 billion closing out its crypto positions around the time when he was an early Bitcoin bull, still predicting the token's price to surge by 100X. And again, from 43 ,000 price action, 100X means over 4 million. Founders Fund had cashed out almost all of its bets on digital assets by March of 2022, according to the Financial Times report that cited people familiar with the matter. But Thiel was still backing Bitcoin, obviously, when he spoke at the crypto conference in Miami the following month. He went on to share where at the end of the fiat money regime, he said, adding that the token's price could increase 100 fold from its level at the time, which was reported at $44 ,000 per coin. That prediction was proven false and as rising interest rates and failures, the high profile firms like Celsius Network, Three Arrows Capital, FTX, Terra Luna dragged the crypto sector into the prolonged bearish winter. Now Bitcoin plummeted by over 60 % in 2022 and was trading at under 17 ,000 by the end of the year. And I believe the bottom currently for the cycle is 15 ,700. How many of you feel that that bottom is in? Let me know, chat. Founders Fund first started pouring money into crypto all the way back in 2014, when Bitcoin was only trading at roughly $750 per coin. So by the time Bitcoin reached its all time high in November of 2021, it had surged 8 ,500 % from that particular level. Not too shabby for a seven year run, wouldn't you say? Now Thiel has a long track record as one of Silicon Valley's most prominent tech investors. He took early stakes in startups, which include Facebook, Elon Musk's SpaceX, and ride hailing app Lyft, and even co -founded PayPal back in 1998. Thiel is also a high profile supporter of the Republican Party and continued to voice his support for Donald Trump since the former president left office in January of 2021. The fund held around two thirds of his portfolio in Bitcoin at one time, but now not has significant exposure to crypto according to FT's sources. So there you have it. Fam, what are your thoughts surrounding his prediction and him cashing out at around that time he was making those all time high predictions of 100X? Let me know, fam.

A highlight from Phone Booth (2002) (Thriller/Psychological Thriller) Movie Review
"What's everyone? happening It's Kira and Ben back again. Today, we're doing a user suggestion phone booth from 2003 starring Colin Farrell. So I saw this movie when it first came out and then I had not seen it again, and re -watching it for this podcast was an absolute wild ride. Ben, let's talk a little bit about your history with the film before we get in it. So I never watched it. Naziru Wanda from Ghana suggested it, and this is my first time actually watching it too. This is your first? Okay. So I knew going in, I had remembered the main plot points of this movie. I had forgotten a lot of the other plot points of this movie, and I forgot what big of a cast this has. So our main man, Stu, is played by Colin Farrell. Our main police detective is played by Forest Whitaker. Colin Farrell's wife is played by Rahata Mitchell, and then his wannabe mistress is played by Katie Holmes, and then the voice over the phone is Keither Sutherland. So a wildly large cast for this film. Obviously, this movie has come out post 9 -11, which I think you can see a lot in the blue tint of the film. If you guys look at color theory, and we're not going to talk about color theory too much about this because the movie is so wild, but if you look at movies that come out directly after 9 -11, there is this very odd bluish tint to a lot of them. I think in my heart, like when I've done research about this and what I've viewed from it as well, is when you're watching films like this, I think it's because it kind of portrays this surreal sadness that everyone was feeling. Kind of like when you look at films made in that time that are set in the Middle East, they film everything with this yellowish tint to make it seem more like third world. So I thought the bluish tint of this movie was so insane, especially having it be set in New York. Then when I was doing some research about the film, this movie was actually supposed to be released in 2002, but it didn't get released until 2003 because there were actual sniper attacks in DC that delayed the release of this film because this movie is about a sniper terrorizing a man in a phone booth. Like I said, first time seeing it and the character of Colin Farrell reminded me of the character from Fast Timer at Ridgemont High that was selling the tickets. They mimicked each other. I was sitting there going, wait, I'm expecting Spicoli to walk out any second. I mean, they were just to the T, the exact same character. I was like, whoa, what's going on here? Yeah. I think that character is such a classic archetype of asshole. I think that was the point. Colin Farrell is this publicist. He's a liar, he's a slick talker, he's a fast talker, he dresses well, he uses people, he manipulates people, he doesn't care, he's all about himself. We see this in the way that he treats his assistant. We see this in the way that he treats one of his clients, which was an uncredited Ben Foster. I was losing my mind when I saw that. I was like, Ben Foster, what are you doing here? Then he manipulates the owner of a restaurant. He smooth talks this client that he has that wants to be an actress. It's Katie Holmes, she's a waitress. Then he even smooth talks his wife into being like in the beginning when he's not confessing his crimes. So this movie is so insane and I do not want to rag too hard on this movie because it was a user suggestion. But the plot points made to me legitimately no sense. So the pacing of this movie is incredibly fast. It's only an hour 20 and I swear to God, if this movie was longer, I would be like, Keith or Sutherland, shoot me because I can't handle it. So obviously, Stu goes into the phone booth to call his mistress because his wife tracks the phone calls that he makes on his cell phone. Which I was like, first of all, if you're keeping tabs on like your, you don't do that unless you don't trust your husband automatically. Then it comes out later in the film that they've only been together for three years married for one. So they're very new in their relationship. So Colin Farrell goes in to make a phone call to Katie Holmes. You can see he's trying to be slimy and she's rebuffing him. She's like, no, I have work, I have this. He's like, well, let's do this. He takes his wedding ring off. Very just much not a nice guy. Then that phone call ends and the phone starts ringing so he picks it up and on the phone, dun, dun, dun, is Keith or Sutherland's voice. He starts terrorizing him and being like, you can't leave this phone booth. If you leave this phone booth, you're going to die. A pizza man comes up to him and tries to deliver a pizza to him and he's like, you're a dick, I didn't order a pizza. Who orders a pizza to a phone booth? We have this other sub -storyline of sex workers, which to me was the most pointless storyline. I get the point of the storyline. So we have to have him have this interaction with these sex workers to then get their bouncer involved, to then have Keith or Sutherland kill the bouncer and frame Colin Farrell for it. Which first of all, makes no sense because you can see the bullet marks on the outside of the phone booth. So how is he shooting? How is he shooting? How could he shoot? That makes no sense. Then everyone's like, he killed him. It's like, no, he didn't. So this sub -storyline is so insane because first of all, it's like 2003, so you either have a beeper or a cell phone or you're using this phone booth. If all these girls work in this club, that's right across the street where this bouncer is, that Leon, that they get involved, why can't they just use the phone in the club? Why are they terrorizing Colin Farrell? He's just like, let me use the phone and then they're all screaming. I thought it was such a weak portrayal too, such a cop -out portrayal of sex workers. Like very, I don't know, just like what you would think of when you think of a man -written sex worker. Just loud, brash, unkempt, very, do you know what I'm trying to say? Yes, I'm a street kid. So yeah, I hung around with the prostitutes and drug addicts and drug dealers. So I totally got it. I mean, I saw people that did act like that, but those are the ones that were really hooked on drugs and were just like, half the time when they were acting like that, they were on something. It wasn't like a normal way for them to behave. Most people don't want to draw attention to themselves because they don't want the cops on their ass. Exactly. So this dude dies and Kether Sutherland is like, look what you made me do. Actually, he's like, you had me kill him. The guy was like, no, I just want this to end. So Kether Sutherland is, in his own mind, a pioneer of justice. Entrapping these men that he watches somehow, he watches and listens and convinces them that they're either going to die or confess to their crimes. So the two examples of the people that he has done this to before, I view are actual bad people. We have a director of adult films who actually directs child pornography and is a pedophile. So I'm like, okay, deserves to die. Then we have another man who's an insider trader on Wall Street. I mean, you don't have to die for that, but it is like a real crime. Then we get to Colin Farrell, whose crime is wanting to cheat on his wife and being an asshole. So to me, none of these make sense. The first two, kind of get. The third, Colin Farrell, not at all. I get it because they're trying to make him more likable. We have to be on Colin Farrell's side, right? So if he's a real criminal, we're not going to be on his side. I wasn't on his side. But you know what I'm saying? He's our protagonist. So we can't have our protagonist be as awful. But at the same point, it's like, well, then maybe you should have just had him kill adulterers because this makes no sense. So he, in his mind, Keither Sutherland, is this vigilante that is cleaning up the streets in New York because he wants people to atone and commit their crimes. So he's holding Colin Farrell hostage. Forest Whitaker comes in. He's trying to negotiate with Colin Farrell. He thinks he killed this guy. He's like, let me help you, let me help you. Up until this point, they think he's armed and dangerous. It is not until Colin Farrell's wife, Kelly Rahada Mitchell, comes in, which for some reason in 2003, you can just run through police barricades and just be like, I'm his wife, run through police barricades, and then be on the front line with the cops. I'm sorry, that never happened. No, not at all. No, they would have her pushed to the side. She would not be in a hostage negotiation. It wouldn't happen. She would not be front and center to the point where he can put a mark on her. So then we see that Forest Whitaker kind of actually comes around to see that Colin Farrell is being terrorized. He is not doing this of his own free volition. He sees the little target on Rahada Mitchell and he's like, oh, OK, maybe this guy is like real. So then they start looking for him. They're like, OK, we're going to find him. We're going to find him. Colin Farrell's delaying him. And the guys and then obviously Colin Farrell comes clean. He's like, OK, I'll come clean. Like, I don't want to die. I don't want my wife to die. I don't want this girl who I want to be my mistress to die. So he confesses all his sins of being an asshole, which everyone's like, OK, you're a dick, whatever you're holding up the street. We got half the police force here. What? And then obviously when they think that they kill the killer, when they think that they kill Keither Sutherland because they go up to the apartment where they trace the call from, it is actually, plot twist, the pizza boy. And it's like, OK, so he's killed Keither Sutherland for this one person. Two people just sacrifice them for no reason to get this guy to confess that he's a slimeball. Feel like we could have done this a different way. And then so then another so we're going to get to all the insane points. But this is the end of the story. And this is the last insane point. Or one of them is that Colin Farrell is now alone in the ambulance. They put something in to make him fall asleep. So he's all loopy. He's all daisy. And then active crime scene in an ambulance. Keither Sutherland walks up and just starts talking to him just like, oh, like you passed the test. You did it right. Like what happens? Like and OK, so he's like talking to him like, oh, you did the right thing. You did the right thing. And Colin Farrell is like, what the fuck? I thought we killed you. And then he walks away. And the last thing he says, which I think is legitimately the stupidest thing. And if this is the point of the movie, it is the dumbest point when he goes, well, if a phone rings, do you have to answer it? I would say no. I would say no. And that is the last line of the film. And then it goes into this like ringing sound, goes all the way out into the satellite shot, goes to black, and then you hear another person pick up and say hello. So it's like obviously this is like a cycle for him. But the way that he picks his victims is makes no sense to me. Yeah, no. And if a phone rings, you don't have to answer. You don't have to answer it. Look at all the things like when a stranger calls bad. They picked up the phone, bad tidings, scream, scream, picked up the phone. Bad tidings. No, you don't have to pick up the phone, especially like if you don't know who the person is. Hang up, hang up. And I did think at some points the voice that Keith or Sutherland used did sound like the ghost face voice, like to the point where I was like, do they have the same voice actor? Is this even even Kiefer Sutherland? Like I was like, this movie is so bad. So I thought a lot. So let's talk about Keith or Sutherland's character. And I obviously am not a fan of this movie, but I thought the way that he was poorly written was like they were trying to make him like John Doe from seven, kind of this vigilante who lives by his own rules, has his own code of justice and kind of is enacting on that code of justice and terrorizing these people. I think in seven it is done much better with an actual point, with an. We have fully fledged characters. We have reasons that make sense in this. We have no back story. We don't know what he why or why he's doing this now. And you think you think they're given a back story when he when he's talking to about Nam and stuff and he's like, are you stupid? I'd be 70. Like and like I'm like, so who are you? Why are you doing this? Well, what is your point? I mean, did you just one day wake up and say, hey, you know what? I'm just going to execute people I feel are bad. I mean, and that's your concept of bad. And your concept of bad is another person's concept of good. I mean, it's like when people go to war. Yeah. The countries fight, but each country thinks they're right. Of course, there's a right and a wrong. But both countries think that they are the right ones. Of course. And the only one that actually like comes out to be the right one is the one that wins, is the one that wins. And I would say in this movie, no one wins now because everyone's motivations make absolutely no sense. I would say the only motivations that make sense is Forest Whitaker's, because he's literally just trying to do his job. Yeah. And then like I was watching when he's his his rapper talent comes on and I was like, what the hell is this, Malibu's Most Wanted? Oh, my God, I thought the same thing. I was like, why are we watching Malibu's Most Wanted? I was like, this is this is this. And then it looked really bad because they get these two big black guys and this little tiny white guy. And he looked terrified to be around the black. And I was like, this is so stereotyping. This is awful right here. It is awful. It was so stereotypical. It was like someone just kind of grabbed at archetypes that they see in pop culture and was like, yeah, we'll throw this in the film. So I also thought the film was shot horrendously. There is it felt like it wanted to be a Tony Scott film, which RIP Tony Scott, I love your films. But it had this kind of like shaky camera. We're switching in and out of views of like like digital versus like these split screens versus like this like granule kind of like VHS effect. And I was like we're like fast paced moving through the city. And I was like, this movie makes no sense at any point. Did this movie make any sense? It does not. No. Like I said, I thought the character was the guy from a fast time at Ridgemont High.
A highlight from 673:Warrens Anti-Crypto Moves and Hong Kongs JPEX Crisis
"Every parent wants to witness the many firsts in their child's life. First steps, first word, first haircut. But what about their first bite of beef? Complete with nutrients like iron, zinc, choline, B vitamins and protein, it's vital for strengthening little minds and little bodies. Making that first bite of beef a moment for everyone to savor. Together, we bring more. Beef. It's what's for dinner. Funded by beef farmers and ranchers. Good evening and welcome to the Crypto Overnighter. I'm Nick Ademus and I will be your host as we take a look at the latest cryptocurrency news and analysis. So sit back, relax and let's get started. And remember, none of this is financial advice. And it's 10pm Pacific Time, Monday, September 18th, 2023. Welcome back to the Crypto Overnighter, where we have no sponsors, no hidden agendas and no BS. But we do have the news, so let's talk about that. Tonight we deep dive into JPEX's meltdown in Hong Kong and what that means for crypto regulation. Next we examine the $70 million hack that rocked Coinex and the geopolitical implications behind it. Then we turn our attention stateside to discuss Senator Elizabeth Warren's anti -crypto bill and the brewing congressional storm over central bank digital currencies. We'll also break down the recent celebrity lawsuits surrounding the now -defunct FTX exchange. And finally we will close with a look at how Europe is taking the lead in crypto ETFs, while the US languishes in regulatory limbo. Buckle up, it's going to be a time. Hong Kong -based crypto exchange JPEX is under fire from the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission. The SFC arrested one person linked to the exchange. We've been talking about JPEX for a couple of days now, and it sounds like they're off to kind of a rough start. JPEX has been operating without a license in Hong Kong. The exchange received numerous complaints, leading to a police investigation. Amid liquidity issues, JPEX suspended all transactions on its earned trading interface. The exchange is also considering restructuring as a decentralized autonomous organization, a DAO. Joseph Lam, a crypto influencer and former lawyer, was arrested in Hong Kong for his association with JPEX. The police raided his office and seized evidence. Lam had urged affected JPEX users to report losses via a police hotline. The SFC warned last week that JPEX and crypto influencers have made false or misleading statements. The police have received at least 83 complaints involving JPEX, amounting to $4 .3 million. JPEX froze certain operations and raised withdrawal fees due to a liquidity crisis. The exchange claimed that its third -party market makers have, quote, maliciously frozen the company's funds. Some users report a $999 USDT fee for withdrawal, with a maximum set at 1 ,000 Tether. JPEX also froze its game platform. The SFC expressed concern over JPEX's misleading statements about licenses and high returns for its products. The arrest and the subsequent probe into JPEX signal a tightening regulatory grip on crypto exchanges operating without a license. This is not just a one -off incident, but a warning shot to other platforms that might be skirting the law. The SFC's involvement and the arrest of a high -profile influencer like Joseph Lam show that the authorities are not taking this lightly. The liquidity crisis at JPEX is a red flag for sure. Not all exchanges are as transparent or as stable as they claim to be. The high withdrawal fees and frozen funds are alarming signs that could lead to a loss of trust among users. The move to restructure as a DAO might seem like a strategic pivot, but it's more likely a desperate attempt to regain some semblance of stability. The 83 complaints against JPEX and the $4 .3 million involved indicate that this is not a small -scale issue. It's a significant problem that could have ripple effects across the crypto landscape in Hong Kong and potentially beyond. The authorities are clearly taking steps to clamp down on misleading practices and unlicensed operations, which could set the tone for future regulatory actions. The JPEX saga underscores the importance of due diligence and the need for regulatory oversight in the crypto space. It also raises questions about the role of influencers in promoting platforms that may not be as secure or as regulated as they claim. This is a wake -up call for all involved in the crypto world, reminding us that with high returns come high risks. Alright, from one sinking ship to another. If you think JPEX's meltdown was a shocker, wait till you hear about Coinex. Before we dive in, give us a like and hit that subscribe button if you're enjoying the show so far.

What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Three, two, one and Julie Harris. We are back. And today we're going to be talking about six of the worst income wrecking mistakes agents are making in today's market. But before we get to the first point, I think you have a really great story from our friend in LA, Federico. Yes. Who is not making the deal wrecking mistakes. In fact, this story, I hope the listeners pay attention because it's going to wind a whole bunch of things together. That's right. So we're starting off by telling you the story of what happens if you don't make six of the income wrecking mistakes with this story. And then we're going to get into the weeds as far as what you need to be avoiding. That's right. Okay. So this is a text from Federico who lives and sells in Los Angeles. He says, hi, Julie. This is hot off the presses right from maybe a couple of days ago. Federico says, I just finished showing clients a new construction community while the build rep was showing us the model, a lady walked in and asked if she could listen in on the build reps presentation. She communicated that she and her husband were looking to downsize and was asking the builder how the financing would work. Okay. So let's stop just for a second. How many of you listening in Los Angeles believe that there's no new construction around? We could just start with that point, but moving forward, uh, during that conversation, I asked her what her situation was and asked if she needed the funds from the sale of her property in order to close on the one she might be looking at. That led to the build rep stating that they would only finance her if her current home was in escrow. So there's a lot to that too. Which by the way, that's probably the build rep not really knowing anything about how to, you know, sell a house using financing because the reality of it is, is the builder wasn't actually using their own money. They were using a mortgage broker and she probably still could have worked that deal, but she was looking for the easier deals of people that had no home sale contingency. That's right. And we're using kind of a lame objection handler. No, you can't do that. Exactly. Which positions our friend Federico listening. That's right. Now, when the build rep exited the room, she thanked me for helping her articulate her points. This is the walk -in potential buyer and asked if I could email her all the information for the new build to which I responded that I was the agent for the other couple in the room, but that I would be happy to help her. That led me to, led me to asking her to, uh, how soon she needed to go on the market. When she responded, uh, we are still decluttering. I don't know where to start or how it all works. I asked her where the home was and what they were asking and asked when I could stop by and see it since I may already have someone. How many of you guys would have gone for the appointment right then and there? Think about that. She answered, that sounds great. We need to declutter first. So I won't, it won't be possible until at least later next month. Let me also work on my husband as far as the new purchase goes and then we can schedule an exact date for you to come by. I got her contact information. Another mistake that agents sometimes fall into. I got her contact information and stopped the conversation since I did not want to be rude in front of my existing clients there. When I left the showing, I called this lady. There's the immediate fallback, uh, follow up. I called this lady back to continue the conversation and to schedule a tentative day and time to go look at the property. She said that she and her husband will be going on a short trip and that we can circle back after my trip. We'll only be gone for a week. During the call, she asked me what commission I would charge. By the way, people don't ask that if they're not serious, do they? Okay. She asked about my commission to which I said, that's a great question. I actually have a flexible fee. What's the best email for you so I can send you a little bit about me and my team and about how we work. That'd be the pre listing package. That way when we meet at the house, we can focus on the items that are most important to you. Also part of the script you learned in premier coaching. It's a textbook. Totally 5 ,000 % textbook. She gave me her email, thanked me for helping her while at the new construction and expressed that she was excited to have me come by their house. There you have it. Now certainly by the way, dad, on what you said with regards to the people asking about commission that quick, 99 % of the time when they ask out of the gates like that, it's because they've got another agent in their back pocket, which it probably isn't a professional agent in the sense that maybe it's somebody they just know as their neighbor or uncle Bob who basically lists the house every thousand years or something like that, who will probably do it for free. That type of question was that the agent, I'm sorry, the seller was looking for a reason to take uncle Bob out of the equation because she really liked Federico and wanted to do business with him. Most importantly though, to your point, he used the scripts that we teach these guys to use in premier coaching and that was one of the obvious scripts that we use that you learn when you're presenting the pre -listening pack and the listening presentation. All this was woven together and what we're trying to express to all of you, so hopefully you're all understanding, is there's opportunity everywhere. You just have to go where the opportunity is and quit waiting for the opportunity to come to you. Which leads us, Julie, perfectly into point number one and remember guys, these are the top six income killing mistakes that agents are making now and frankly in a lot of cases have normalized. That's right. So point number one or mistake number one, and we're also going to have some action steps how to fix these problems ASAP. Mistake number one, playing the waiting game, waiting for the market to crash, waiting for interest rates to come down, waiting for inventory. Waiting doesn't get transactions into your pipeline, nor does it help your clients and prospects to achieve their goals. You must take control of your day, your week, your month, your quarter, and your year in order to defeat the waiting game. Say this at least 10 times, if it's meant to be, it's up to me, and then take control. We're going to give you some action steps here. All right, so first action step on this mistake, accept the fact that there are zero indicators that the market's going to crash. Zero. Remove it from your head. While there are some price ranges in some markets this year where it's set to, I'm sorry, where there are some price reductions is what that should say in some markets, this year is set to close with between five and 9 % increase in home values. I wonder how many people actually know that. I mean, with all these headlines that are supposed to basically make you think there's a housing crash, do you all know that real estate in the mainland United States is increased in value by at least 5%, in some cases around 10 % year over year? So yes, despite the headlines about prices falling, home values have still increased. That's right. Now, low inventory, stable demand, lots of new construction, and rising prices are not indicators of a housing crash. Those things do not exist in a housing crash. Now, if any of that changes, you can hear about it here, we'll let you know. So it's important that we remind them that we are at, what, a 20 or 30 year low for the number of mortgages that are in any sort of distress? Yes. It's like less than 3 %? It's less than 3%, a historic low, and that includes all of the forbearances and things that happened around COVID. That's all baked in at this point. Do you remember all the people that were, you know, of course, these real estate prognosticators were trying to sell you lists on how to get into REOs and all this other stuff? How they were saying, oh, you wait until all those people on mortgage forbearance, all those COVID mortgage forbearances, those houses are all going to default. None of them defaulted, did they? You see how there are some people, guys, who only think that they can make money, only think they can help people when the market's going one particular direction. So what they do is they wait around and hope and pray that the sky falls so that they can be right. And that is, I suppose, a business model. But the reality of it is you can help people make money no matter what direction the market is going. You don't just have to wait for the direction that it's been going. For example, a lot of you, to Julie's point, were waiting around for their interest rates to lower, waiting around for the mortgage stuff to clear, become easier, inventory to increase. Stop waiting around. There's inventory everywhere. It's not just where it's like what Federico discovered. It's hidden, in essence. You have to go to where it's at. You have to go to where the market opportunity is. Stop waiting for the market opportunity to show up on your computer screen. Yes. And when you go to new construction where he went, especially in those price ranges, go where the buyers are looking. You will also find listings. That's right. OK. So again, we're back to the waiting game. So you said that. So we have to drill down. Because I always have to remind myself and you that we have people that are maybe listening to us for the first time ever. And yes, this is the number one Listen To Dilly podcast for real estate professionals in the United States. Tens of thousands of people downloading it. But for the one person that's discovered this for the first time, defining what Julie just said, if you're going to, as Federico did, go look, essentially show buyers or go to a new construction area where the new construction is, say, $800 to, say, on up, chances are the person purchasing one of those new construction homes, they're going to have a house to sell. So that means that probably realistically 90 % of the buyers, air quoting here, that are interested in new construction actually also are sellers. But how many of you think like that? How many of you think buyer or seller? You can't be both. Always assume that your buyer is actually a seller and where you focus your energy is on the listing side of things, because that's what's going to be the juggernaut to them moving forward with any, you know, like they're not going to buy anything but to sell the home most likely. So you can't, if you just focus on the buy side of the conversation, you're never going to get to where the real opportunity is on the list side. Once you have the listing, you will obviously sell that house, well, we've done studies on this, you'll sell an average of six other houses off one listing. With a buyer, you will sell a buyer a house. So open your mind to the opportunities that are all around you. Stop thinking and stop sitting around waiting for, you know, something to change. You're the change that needs to happen if you're not liking your, you know, your project, your your momentum right now into the new market. Yes. And you uncovered another mistake, which is assuming that, you know, it's just it's another buyer. I already am up to my eyeballs and buyers and there's no inventory. So why would I want another buyer? You're missing the point. Buyers bring listings and in those price ranges in the right range, you can get buyers who have a listing that are less expensive than the new construction and more expensive than the new construction downsizing. You can actually work both ends of that. Well, it's a frustrating it's frankly the wrong way to go about it. If you're trying to sell a buyer a house and try to find them the right house, the perfect house, all the rest of it, yet they have a house to sell. I'll give you a little advanced coaching here. None of them are going to emotionally commit to purchasing something unless they happen to have the cash to pay for it, which is unlikely. You know, they're not going to have the cash without the sale of their current home. So they won't emotionally commit to anything until at least their first their existing home is listed for sale, let alone in contract. So this is the type of, you know, thinking you need to adjust towards and realizing that the best opportunity is always going to be on the listing side of the business. That's right. So here's the thing back to a point or mistake. Number one, waiting around. Well, what about interest rates? Interest rates will eventually get lower, but are not likely to go below five and a half to six and a half percent, maybe even for the rest of your career. What we just went through is not the norm. So stop wishing for the old market and embrace the new market. Now, that said, there was an interesting there are some political hubbub that's floating around about the fact that, you know, different politicians are starting to lobby for the idea that there's going to be I told you about this. I heard that crazy permanent 30 year mortgages at three percent, which I mean, it sounds great, right? Even if it were four percent, it would be pretty interesting. Well, yeah, they're going to sell like 100 year bonds and finance it and the whole thing and that could stimulate something. Oh, my gosh. But it's also going to well, so let's think about this. You're going to massively increase demand. And what that's what is that going to do to the cost of real estate as well as inventory available? Right. So you might have a low interest rate, but, you know, the four hundred thousand dollar house you're interested in buying is now worth two million. So anyway, I would circle the wagons back probably to new construction if that happens. We'll see. We'll see. We'll monitor that. OK, so the weighting gain. Learn about several ways to achieve a lower rate and a lower payment. What rates are higher than a lot of people want? Refer to last week's podcast about three ways to achieve lower mortgage interest rates. Learn about what the builders are doing. Many new home loans are closing today in our times where rates are over seven. The new construction loans are closing the mid five, five and a half range right now. So take action to find out where in your market is that actually happening? All right. So mistake number two, there was a lot wrapped up in number one, number two, expecting your buyers to send you what they want to look at versus finding the right homes for them yourself. We've done so many podcasts. I know, but this is such a mistake. You know, yes, we know that buyers can find listings online. There's five million different resources. But what happens when they take them to you? Isn't it already in contract? Aren't there already multiple bids? And then you believe there's nothing and you wait for them to go discover something. It is not their job to find something. And furthermore, well, let me get in my points. I probably talked about this. So get and use the buyer presentation, which drills down on specifically what your buyer clients desire in their next home. That can be a mistake is not knowing the specifics. What is a deal maker and what's a deal killer? Are both people on the same page? If you're working with a couple, can you handle objections like I want to wait for rates to come down or prices to come down or both? We talked about that previously. Now, once you know what they need, that they are motivated and they're qualified, it is your job to find them the right home. Think out of the box. Refer to our podcast series about how to find inventory. So, for example, consider changing the type of property, single family to maybe a town home or a condo or vice versa. And the price range, in fact, sometimes going a little bit down market can actually find good alternatives, expanding the geographic search or looking at new construction. And there's a counterpoint here. I've been working on this with coaching clients, OK, which is when a buyer does send you that magic listing. I got to see that. They're really juiced up about it. And that's the only thing they sent you today. OK, so why that one versus everything else that they saw? Ask them why that one and then have two or three backup houses set up. You can always cancel showing appointments. Right. Because what if they're wrong? What if the MLS pictures didn't have the power tower in the backyard? Have another plan. You have a showing appointment. Go sell something. Does that make sense? It does, of course. But I mean, I just we could talk forever about this point because there are so many different places where they can go and look for homes that are officially for sale. But really, I was thinking if I are coaching somebody right now, this you're gearing a lot of your points towards too many buyers, basically. Yeah. And your last point, I really like because you're in essence saying, well, make make it so that the buyers are working with because there's never a true have to buy buyer. There's always want to buy buyers. In other words, there's never a buyer. There's buyers will always change their mind. That's the problem. They're always going to say, I'll wait till next year to raise the fall, wait for pigs to fly, whatever it's going to be. Whereas if you're focusing on a listing, the sellers actually have to sell usually for financial reasons or, you know, whatever it just overall right now, obviously you're going to make more money and have more leverage and freedom if you're focused on being a listing agent. So what would happen if you decided to actually become a coaching client, actually follow our system, actually build up to your magic number of listings, which for many of you is maybe five or seven listings, sometimes depending on your price point, might only be three. And the only buyers you work with are those are the sellers that want to buy something. In other words, stop working with buyers that don't actually have homes to sell. Start valuing your time more and you'll get far better results. But it's also going to force you to become a far better listing agent, far better, you know, proactively generated for the sake of listings. And you're going to get vastly better at prequalifying because you're going to be, guess what, choosing who you're going to work with. So if you're finding yourself emotionally and financially burning it at both ends, it's probably because you just don't have any standards. It's probably because you're working with just about anybody. You're willing to pay referral fees. You're buying all your buyer leads. You're not really running a business, guys, in the sake that, you know, you're going to have any kind of, frankly, security going forward. So really pivot your thinking and ask yourself, would I rather be a really amazingly strong listing agent or buyer's agent? Every single one of you want to focus on being a listing agent in a lot of ways. You have to kind of choose because the buyers will suck up all your energy and your time. Now, if you want to transition from being one to the other, go back to the fact that, you know, you need to prequalify better. You need to actually ask those buyers if they have homes to sell. Depending on the price point, you're going to discover that most of them do. And then guess what you do? You pivot and focus on the listing side of it because that's when you're going to create the leverage. Joining our premier coaching program is free.

Or you can just, frankly, go to premier coaching dot com or text the word premier to 47372. All right, Julie, let's roll up to mistake number three. Mistake number three. Yep. All right. Not having enough leads in the first place. Speaking of lead generation, if you're struggling with lead generation, it's time to get some help before it's too late. Now, more than ever, it's critical that you generate more leads than you think you need in order to do the business you need to do. To your point that no buyer ever actually has to buy. So you have to overdo your lead generation so that you can find those listing leads in particular. Well, if you want to sell, for example, if you want to sell 10 houses in the next six months or maybe it's the next 60 days or next 30 days. And normally, let's say you are you know, let's assume that you're somewhat efficient and you know, you have a ratio. Let's say, for example, if you have 10, well, let's say you have six seller leads, you know that statistically three or four of those are going to list with you in the next 30 to 60 days. You're going to need to double that in a market like this because people are there's going to be a lot of a lot of headwinds that you're not necessarily going to be able to control, mostly with lack of inventory. So you're going to have to pace out your expectations and increase the number of contacts and increase the number of leads you're working with. But it always goes back to really drilling down the leads you are working with. Otherwise, what you're going to quickly discover is that you have hundreds, if not thousands of unqualified, unmotivated, quote unquote, leads, and none of them are doing transactions with you. And why? Because you're not taking the time to go in there and prequalify them. If you're one of these agents who have falsely believed that the way to win this game is by having massive amounts of leads, I challenge you to do this. Go in, grab our seller prequalification script or our buyer prequalification script, which turns into the seller prequalification script, and call every single one of your leads. You'll discover many things. Number one, the ones you've been dripping on for a long period of time. Some of them don't even know why you're messaging them or have never even seen your messages, let alone know who you are. Number two, some of them already transacted months ago, but you didn't call them. So they didn't transact with you. Number three, you're going to find people that are actually motivated and they're waiting for you to call. You've been treating them like a buyer and sending them home buyer tips and all the rest of it through your drip campaigns. But now because you have them on the phone, they'll actually commit to working with you. You've got to stop being passive with your life, but especially with your lead generation. Well put. So that all goes back to not having enough leads in the first place. So sign up for Premier Coaching with our Harris certified coaches because they're going to start by asking some specific questions like, where did your past five transactions come from? Was it luck and hopium or did you connect with those clients through a proven system or strategy? If it was a proven system or strategy, why did you stop doing it? How many leads do you actually have in your pipeline? To your point, what your story, you were just saying, what I was thinking is a lot of agents think that they're leads, but they're just contacts. They're just people in your database. Why are you calling them leads? You don't know if they're a lead or not because you're not talking to them. Now you also might have a lead conversion issue versus a lead generation issue. That's something that the coaches drill down on. Where are you spending money to generate buyer and listing leads and what is that conversion ratio and how many contacts are you actually making daily where you're speaking with a decision -making adult about real estate? That's just the beginning of great coaching questions to drill down on why you might not have enough leads or appointments. Well, where you're spending money to generate buyer and listing leads. I mean, obviously it was assumptive, right? In other words, she's not suggesting you spend money to generate buyer and seller listing leads. Uh, but she's suggesting that you actually go in and question, frankly, uh, whether or not that money that you're spending to generate leads from those sources actually makes any sense because we know you're doing it.
A highlight from Innovation to Spark Next Bull Run? (5 Altcoins for New Market Cycle! ) 2023 Altcoin Strategy!
"Something important we need to be mindful of as crypto investors before the next bull cycle is that there are a lot of people, probably a lot of us, that have been holding bags of altcoins that are in the red from last bull cycle. Some of our altcoins are down 20%, 40%, 60%, some down over 80%, 90%, and some of us are still holding it. One of the top questions I get asked all the time is 1. Which altcoins am I looking at for the next bull cycle? And 2. Do you think such and such coin is coming back? Should I hold? Should I sell? And considering the reality of the situation where a lot of people are holding altcoins that pumped hard in the last bull cycle, that have been in the red throughout this long brutal bear market, who are constantly asking me if the coin is coming back and if they should keep holding or sell, what do we honestly think is going to happen when or if certain coins go up 10%, 20 %? Try to start approaching their last all -time highs. Well, there is going to be a ton of sell pressure. Everyone who is in the red, some that may be down 90 % in their position, are cool with maybe selling at an 80 % loss if the coin price starts increasing, some are cool at selling at a 70 % loss, 50 % loss, 30 % loss, and when considering this horrible economic environment with people needing to take out loans to buy groceries to survive, what percentage of all altcoin holders from the previous bull market do you honestly think are going to wait for their bags to get in the green? And let's just say optimistically that it's a lot of people. What will happen when they are finally in the green? Massive sell -off. So whether we are holding popular altcoins from the last bull cycle or if we are considering buying altcoins that were popular in the last bull cycle at these crazy lows, keep in mind that the journey to previous all -time highs will be long, tough, and arduous. And in some cases, that journey may not ever happen. And just to be clear, this technology is still extremely new, speculative, risky, very risky. So the reality is for now and likely the next few years, the highest and best use of altcoins is literally to just trade them, buying them low from someone who capitulates and selling them to someone high who FOMOs in later in the game. Buying and selling altcoins is unfortunately a zero -sum gain, where one person's gain is equal to another person's loss. Some will get rich and others will get wrecked. Buying and selling crypto for a potential profit is not a steady, reliable source of income. Buying and selling crypto is an extremely risky form of investing that is actually more like gambling. These are not your typical startups or businesses that are generating profit by creating and distributing value in the form of product, services, or utility for the most part. Projects go bust, projects get sued, founders rug -pull glitches happen, tech gets hacked. Anything can happen, which is why it's so important to never, ever put any money. You absolutely cannot afford to lose in any type of investment or plays like altcoins. The more at -risk your money is, the more potential reward you may experience, and absolutely the more potential you may lose at all. So with this harsh reality in mind, going back to the top question I get asked the most, which altcoins am I looking into for the next bull cycle? Well, it's not really any altcoins that were popular in the last bull cycle because of the massive sell pressure they will experience when or even if the price starts to creep back up, which is one of the reasons why historically popular altcoins from previous cycles don't perform as well in future cycles. Sure, some of the bigger ones like Solana can make a comeback. However, we have a better shot at a moonshot with newer projects with less bagholders or positions in the red waiting for it to maybe come back, and projects that are part of the next exciting wave of tech innovation that sparks the next crypto bull cycle. Because when looking back, the first bull cycle was sparked by the invention of Bitcoin, the first decentralized global peer -to -peer digital currency. The second bull cycle was sparked by the launch of Ethereum, the first decentralized global digital software technology that people could build decentralized applications on. And the third bull cycle was sparked by the development of DeFi or decentralized finance, applications like Uniswap, Maker, Ava, Synthetix, and similar. And we've seen certain categories of cryptocurrencies experience short pump cycles during this bear market like AI and meme coins. So what will be the spark that ignites this next potential absolutely face -melting crypto bull cycle? Hello, I'm Crypto Casey and in this video we are going to explore what could likely spark the next bull cycle in five newer cryptocurrencies I'm looking to gamble into this next market cycle. Let's hit it.
The Consequences of Youthful Ignorance
"Young people frequently criticize the elderly without understanding that they only want what is best for everyone. They start with their dad, then move on to their teachers, then their professors, and finally their boss, all the while failing to recognize that these individuals possess knowledge and perspective that they lack. They refuse to acknowledge their lack of knowledge and continue to pass judgment on others without attempting to understand various points of view or putting themselves in the position of the people they are criticizing. They don't look at the wider picture and don't realize that although their service may help one person, it will hurt many others, so they continue down the same path and try to convince themselves that their poor choices are truly helping other people. The issue is not that they do not possess the intelligence of a stomach that can communicate to you when it needs food. They are unaware of their own foolishness since their brains do not alert them to it. Realizing how little they actually know helps people grow. The criticism of the young lacks wisdom, experience, and an understanding of the right context. As we get older, we acquire new information and a wider perspective, demonstrating how limited and inaccurate the judgments we made when we were younger were. When we look back on events and people in the past, we see how little we really knew about their complexities. The next time you feel the want to criticize someone who is older, wiser, or more experienced than you, take a moment to pause and think about how much you might be passing up. You might discover that you have been misinterpreting the situation all along if you listen before you judge. Recognizing how little we actually know is frequently the first step toward gaining wisdom.
A highlight from Has the diversity battle changed?
"In this episode I speak to Juro Oye about his charity Twenty Twenty Levels, which aims to empower young, black and underrepresented individuals by providing them with opportunities for personal and career development. We discuss the challenges faced by minorities in senior positions, including the mentality of being the only one and the reluctance to uplift others. We look at the generational shift and the challenging battles faced by younger generations, highlighting the importance of recognising progress made and the value of diversity in corporate settings, particularly with the growing rate of mixed -race individuals and the views of Generation Z. Tune into this free -flowing conversation about mentorship and supporting the next generation of talent and entrepreneurs. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organisation. And today our guest is Juro Oye. How are you doing? I'm very well, thank you Judith. How are you? I'm really good. Tell me, tell me, tell me, what makes you happy? Just life, you know. I think I'm in a very good space in my life at the moment. Family, being around family. I've got a little one and a wonderful wife, so spending quality time with them makes me happy. I think the best sound for me right now is the chuckle of my little boy. That always brings a smile to my face. And they're so cute as well, aren't they? When a kid laughs, how can you not laugh when they hear a kid laughing? Exactly. Just makes your heart go, doesn't it? Okay, so tell us a bit more about you. What would you like to know? What do you do and why do you do it? That's a good start, actually. I am the founder and chief exec of an organisation called 2020 Levels and we are a youth empowerment social mobility organisation with a mission to help young, black and racially underrepresented people access opportunities to maximise their potential. And what do we mean by that? So these are opportunities in the area of personal and career development and also business development as well. So we're really just kind of helping people build social capital, access opportunities and do things that ordinarily they wouldn't be able to do on their own without our support, our introductions and door opening. And why do you think there's a need for people like you to do that? Well, it kind of all stems from my own personal journey, trying to break into the creative industry, facing a number of difficult hurdles, having to go over and jump over those hurdles. So hurdles in terms of access, hurdles in terms of guidance, support, mentorship. I was seeking that kind of support from people that looked like me that were a bit further along and more senior within the industry. But they weren't very forthcoming and it was people that didn't look like me that kind of took me under their wing, saw a spark within my eyes and saw that, you know, there was something about me and they wanted to nurture that. And in that moment, I made up my mind to do something once I had a bit of success under my belt to help people that look like me. And I felt like I didn't need to have everything in place in order to do that. If I take one step forward, I could reach my hand back and pull maybe five or six other people that look like me and then there'll be more of us doing the same kind of thing. And that's just what I felt needed to happen. It started within the creative industry and now we span over nearly all major industries in the country in terms of accessing opportunities for our young people from backgrounds that come from low socio economic backgrounds. Hmm. You know what? I love that analogy. One step forward and then reach back and bring in five because people don't think like that. They think when I'm done, when I reached, when I'm a multimillionaire, that's when I reach back and grab other people. But you're actually saying you need to do it now. Wherever you are, you can still reach back. Absolutely. And that was that was the mentality that was instilled in me from my mentors. Right. So my mentors didn't have everything. You know, they weren't multimillionaires at the time. They were just wanting to do something that made sense, something that was good to do. You know, and I realized that with the little that you have, you could do so much because what you see is little to someone else is so much. And I felt like we are where we're more powerful in unity and in the growth of our numbers. So if as one person, I can reach back and pull five up, there's six people that can then also pull five up as well. You know, one step more and more of you. And there's that saying that it's lonely at the top. But if we all approach that mentality when we're at the bottom in terms of taking one step forward and pulling five people up by the time you get to the top, it's not lonely because you're not there by yourself.
Leonardo de Vinci and da Vinci glow
"Hello friends, the dark windy glow, a glimpse of the dark windy glow was witnessed. It is a phenomenon that can happen around sunset when a crescent moon is on the horizon. But the outline of a full moon is visible about Da Vinci Glow, named after Leonardo da Vinci. This phenomenon is named after the legendary Renaissance artist and scientist, Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo da Vinci in the 16th century became the first person to describe this spectacle. Intertuning his artistic perception with scientific curiosity, the sky retains a touch of darkness. During the Da Vinci Glow time, the sky retains a touch of darkness but is not completely devoid of light. A minute from light reflected by the Earth, this enchanting glow, also known as Earth sign, a minute from light reflected by the Earth onto the moon's surface, making the lunar night an astounding 50 times brighter than a typical full moon night on Earth, provided a deeper understanding although Da Vinci's original explanations had slowed subsequent advancements in technology and lunar missions have provided a deeper understanding of Da Vinci Glow, enhancing the appreciation of this celestial phenomenon.
A highlight from The Professional Rule Breaker Episode 59 - Redefining Sales with a Touch of Positivity with Hicham John Elanmati
"I tell people, forget the numbers. The numbers will come by default if you just do it. It's it's it's again, it's a number game, right? But so it's a low of average. You're going to you need to talk to a lot more people, right? That's one, two. You need to be not looking like, oh, I'm going to get my one for the day or two for the day, right? You just want to you want to look at, you know, for a month, whatever your target is, you're going to look at like how many people among a service and help and give them a solution today. And every day I want to serve and help more people. And so if you go with that mindset and you actually have that real attitude about it, people will just love to actually get that service and product from you. And they're going to continue doing that. And you'll see the numbers coming in like from nowhere. Like, you know, they'll be like, oh, I just you know, I was told about you from so on and so forth. And then you get another call, you get an email, a text and then you build in business. And imagine if you did this every day and every month to get new referrals. I mean, your numbers are going to multiply. It's going to be exponential growth. Absolutely. Absolutely. And I love how you said that, because I think even just getting up in the morning, OK, who am I going to help today? Instead of going, oh, I have to do all these things. Completely changes your attitude first thing in the morning, right? Well, welcome back to the Professional Worldbreaker podcast. I'm your host, Kathy Walterhouse, and I'm known as the professional rule breaker. But I have to say, my guest today is also a professional rule breaker. You might remember his name. His name is Hurricane H. That's actually his nickname that he goes by, because this is part two of my interview with my friend Hurricane. I want to ask you this question. For the people out there, since you're a sales guru, too, for the people out there that are struggling in sales. Can you give them some advice on what to do? So it's a big word struggle in sales. I mean, what level of struggle they have, right? I mean, is it finding the customers? Is it is it pitching? Is it closing? I mean, that's the other. I mean, is it because there's a prospect in writing and just finding the opportunity. And sometimes you have the opportunity. You just can't close because you are afraid to ask for, for example, money. A lot of people have that problem, right? Yeah. So so it's it's understanding. First of all, you said the key word you have to be. You have to have the signature. You have to be honest. You have to be. I think we had that discussion in the previous show you and I had. It's about having that that direct personality, that you are not just bullshit in people. If people if you have a solution, that's going to work and you believe in it. That's the other thing. You can't sell something. You don't believe it. I'm sorry. You can sell it, you know, but you will struggle because you will be very difficult and people can read through. You might sell it to a few, but not to to the many that you want to. Is you want to make sure that you are an expert in what you say and what you do and your whatever industry, because that's the other part, because people are going to not only want a solution, but they want to know how it's going to apply to them. And also you need to be able to understand what the needs are from these people, which means you have to do a little bit more digging. So I have you in front of me as a potential prospect. But what does that mean? Nothing. And I know that you might need the service, but I need to know everything about you, whether the service and what part of the service is going to work and what may not work. And if and if I give you all those things, you almost basically sold already. You see, and that's one. So that's that's that's that's in terms of as interacting prospecting is I I hate, for example, something I see all the time. I get solicitations on LinkedIn all the time. Oh, my gosh. Oh, yes. Well, here's the thing. I look at them like, do you look at my profile? Do you see like what what might what I do? I mean, if if if if you see what I do, you probably will not even reach out to me because I'm not your customer. Right. You know, exactly how would you do that? So that's that's the thing. That's your struggle. So you can't be just automated, you know, automated, you know, level here. You have to have an understanding of who is your audience. What do you sound who you sound to what you sound and all this stuff. That's one. So the struggle is not real. The struggle is just a lack of understanding of where you are. Some people are in sales and there's pressure in sales. I think that's the other part, because you're being pushed, you you crumble and you just basically start like, you know, just scrambling things, you know, and you're not really. I mean, if you use I use a smart, you know, formula, right? You have to be specific, measurable, all that stuff. You know, if you use that, you know, and standing every single thing, if I meet with you, we're going to go step by step. The smart piece, the measurable piece, you know, the actionable and so on. So when we're going to go step by step and make it, I need to have an understanding of what it is. And I'm not going to go to everybody now. There is a customer, I always say this. There's a customer for every product or service, and there's a product and service for every customer or person out there. Is mine there? You're not going to sell the world. I mean, you could. Depends on what you have. I mean, if you if you sell the water, you think I think you can sell to everybody. You know, so it depends what you have. But the struggles are difficult if you're not really engaged properly or really if your heart into it. Because, again, if you're lying to sell or using pressure tactics, you're going to struggle a lot because people are going to read through you and, you know, nobody's going to invite you in. And even if you did, you're not going to be able to move past the first few minutes. Thank you very much. I'm not interested. Have a good day. Bye bye. That's it. You know, we'll call you later. You know, that's what's going to happen now. If they you know, we I, I use this in training. You want to have spent some time with your prospect. Get to know them. And when you go and spend 20 minutes, 30 minutes, if you have to, you know, bullshit with them, you know, I'm talking about, like, you know, just socialize, you know, get to know them more. And by the way, if they spend 20, 30 minutes with you, they're not going to spend a lot more time with other people if they are your competitions, because you already they already gave you that time. But if you make it profitable in terms to their benefit, in terms of their time, in terms of like, you know, connect with them, you know, from from really, you know, the the good stuff, you know, they're going to want to hear more from you and they're going to believe that you are correct, you know, that you're honest and stuff, because you are genuine. You know, when you're doing that, if you're just coming in straight to the for the kill and you just want to throw, you know, this life and you just go like robotic, like what you have to expect from any salesperson. You end it right there. And they're just basically going to be very cool. But if you open up to them, they open up to you. You have a better chance to move to the next stage. And not only that, if they like you all day on to Raj is yours. And in sales and true business is your referral, you know, is where your best bet is. You can use all the market in the world. You know, your your open rate and your close ratios are going to be very small. You know, you have to talk to thousands to get a few hundreds to actually close a few times, you know. And if you actually have a good referral system and people are going to say, hey, talk to Kathy, she's great. Oh, I'm talking to Kathy because, you know, I know the best of all. I mean, that's the easiest sale out there, isn't it? The referrals, I mean, and the funny thing is, do you find that a lot of people don't ask for referrals, like a lot of salespeople? I'm like, how do you not ask for a referral if you've done a really good job with a customer and you've really helped them and they love you? Why on earth aren't you asking for a referral or even asking, hey, do you know this person? Like, let's say you have somebody that you have always wanted to get in front of. And for whatever reason, you can't. Why not ask one of your other customers? Hey, do you happen to know them? I do better. Yeah, I do better. When when I meet with people, I will. And when I also train my team, I tell them, when you are trying to get in an appointment, you know, as them. Is there anybody else that you'd like to invite your neighbors, your family that, you know, since I'm going to be there, anyways, let's just talk and see, you know, how I can benefit everybody. You can pre almost get your referrals, not even getting them later now. But you're right. People great point. Great point. Yeah. It doesn't take much. Right. I mean, you know, I'm just I'm presenting to one or 10. It's the same thing. Right. So I can I can it's the same pitch and I'll get more engagement. I'll have more fun with them. And that's it. I mean, think about a seminar. Right. Same concept. You just have more people in my room. Same concept here that you can do that. And it's it's a wholesale opportunity. But I think the main problem why people don't ask is the same problem where they don't close, what they don't ask for the close or because they're just, you know, not smart enough to realize that this is not a it's a number game one, number one, and you're not going to win by onesies. You're going to win in wholesale opportunities and you're going to get more of the referrals. People have to like you and they see the value and you have to deliver also. And then then they can they can realize because I guarantee you right now, anyone watching, you don't just tell your friends to go to anyone that you don't like. You're going to tell them, absolutely use my lawyer, use my construction guy. You use my my my attorney, use my I don't know, my CPA, whatever you always give them the ones that, you know, don't use this one because he is bad or she's bad. That's right. We say exactly that. So if we are using that rule, then as salespeople, we also know that that applies to us as humans. We have to apply the same thing. And you got to be perfect at it. And by the way, ask for it. I mean, it's not going to what's the worst that can happen, right? They're going to say, how do you say that? What's the worst that can happen? That's the thing that I always try to train people on, right? What's the worst that can happen? Yes, for the sale. Well, here's the thing. Well, the sale definitely you want, but the sale or anything or even just trying something. Yeah. We start with zero. Then then you're everything else is ahead of zero. So you're good. You know, I mean, remember, this is the part where I think most people in the world struggle talking about struggle is that you have your stuff from a point where there's nothing. Anything else is better than nothing. So so you're you're still ahead of the game the minute you start doing something. Right. Right. Right. I mean, because that's what it is. We start from from not having whatever we are looking for and then we start building to get whatever we want. And so so the problem is, I think when people get somewhere, it's hard to come back to that point of zero. But if you actually determined in your life that no matter what I go point zero, I'm still OK, then you're OK. Nothing's going to faze you and nothing's going to worry you because you always going to be able to restart. And that's the other thing. If you started once, you can start 10 ,000 times later. So and that's the other thing. It makes you better in sales. That's a rule. That's a rule. You know, it's actually you. You brought something up because if you had that mindset that you're talking about, isn't it a lot easier when you get the nose or, you know, because in sales you're going to get nose, whatever. Isn't it a lot easier than if you have that mindset that you were talking about to let it just roll off your shoulders? Because I had somebody that said to me, you know, how do you how do you just change your mindset? Like, I got a bunch of nose today. And how do you how do you snap out of it? And, you know, and it was an interesting question because for me, for the you know, because I've done this for so long, that stuff just rolls off my shoulders. Right. Because I believe in what it is that I'm doing. And it's not for everybody. I've actually been in situations when when we were talking and then I realized this is not for a person. Like, I'm sorry, but this is not for you. I don't think, you know, I thought this may be helping you. But no one more now. This is not for you. And literally, that's how the discussion went. But if you know someone else that you might think this would work, you know, I'll be more happy to talk to them again. So it happens. But but to that person that has that challenge of like, oh, my God, you know, I can't get over like all my objections today and my lack of closing. Well, here's the thing. It's just another day. There will be better days, another day, tomorrow you start fresh. Every day is a new beginning, a new day. You go for the max, you go for the best, you know, the most opportunities. And here's the best way I always presented to my teams is how many people want to help today? That's it. If you go with that again, idea is that I'm going to help people today. Whatever service or product I have. Of course, you have to believe, right? But if you do believe, first of all, if you don't believe in a product, you shouldn't be selling it. You should move to somewhere else. Absolutely. Yes. But if you believe in what you. Right. I mean, because. But sometimes people stay for years with the company and have just kind of like average results, you know, just because they don't. Yeah. A paycheck just because, you know, they don't want to move to somewhere else. And I'm not about average at all. I don't like average. I don't think you do either. Well, you know, it's a joke. We don't we don't settle for 100 percent. It's it's 120 percent and beyond in sales. But in life, too, you know, I think that's the part. Sales is life. I mean, it's just a different week. We almost lock it in in the concept of sales. But we do this every day. I mean, you can't settle for for average or for nothing. I mean, in life. I mean, that's if you do. That's when you don't see results in life and you're like, what's going on? Why my life is not going, you know, in a good direction. I don't see me doing anything. Well, that's because you're settling. I mean, you you have to keep moving. You got to keep doing stuff and just improving your lifestyle slowly. But truly, it doesn't have to be extravagant stuff. I'm talking about just basic stuff. If it fulfills you, that's it. That's that's important. But to your point, if if you're in sales and there's a target, there's stuff, you know, you don't go look beyond the target. So that's the other thing. You know, I tell people forget the numbers. The numbers will come by default if you just do it. It's it's it's against and I'm a game. Right. But so it's a low of average. You got to you need to talk to a lot more people. Right. That's one, two. You need to be not looking like, oh, I'm going to get my one for the day or two for the day. Right. You just want to you want to look at, you know, for a month, whatever your target is, you're going to look at like how many people among a service and help and give them a solution today. And every day I want to serve and help more people. And so if you go with that mindset and you actually have that real attitude about it, people will just love to actually get that service and product from you. And they're going to continue doing that. And you'll see the numbers coming in like from nowhere, like, you know, they'll be like, oh, I just you know, I was told about you from so on and so forth. And then I get another call, get an email, a text. And then you build in business. And imagine if you did this every day and every month you get new referrals. I mean, your numbers are going to multiply. It's going to be exponential growth. Absolutely. Absolutely. And I love how you said that, because I think even just getting up in the morning, OK, who am I going to help today? You know, what am I? You know, instead of going, oh, you know, I have to do all these things. I know. Who am I going to help today? Yeah. Completely changes your attitude first thing in the morning. Right. Because it's not this grocery list of things that you have to do, but you get to do something cool. You get to make a difference in somebody's life. Right. But yeah, I laugh about it because, you know, I always tell people this is not it is not for everyone. Right. But you have to have fun with it. You got to enjoy every moment of it. You know what? I tell my team, you know, we all my teams, you know, over the years, I always say this. We all bullshit every day. I mean, literally, everybody talks, right? I mean, people talk every day. You cannot look at two or three people in anywhere that are quiet unless they're looking on the phone. They're chatting and they're chatting just nonsense sometimes and maybe positive stuff. I don't know whatever they chatted. But the point I tell people is like we use the same skill to help people and help ourselves by helping others. And so that's all there is. So enjoy the moment. Enjoy how it is. Learn your stuff and be good there. Be with the mission to help more. And you're going to find people just really motivated to come to you and refer you to others. And they'll they'll they'll be your best actually promoters. And that's the thing in sales. You want people like, oh, you want to talk to the cat, talk to the cat. And that's how it's going to go. Now, if you're not that at that level, you can evolve to that. But but you have to reconfigure your own approach about it. But you're right. The morning is everything. You wake up in the morning, a new day. I'm going to have the best day today. And every day is your best day. You know, that's it. Yesterday's gone. Now, you might have terrible days every now and then. But I guarantee you, if you did it correctly, you're going to have a lot less terrible days and a lot more positive days and productive days. And just it works. I don't know how it does, because your attitude makes a difference. Your energy makes a difference. If you go into people and you know, and you're just robotic and slow and you're not clear or you're not able to answer the questions that I'm purposely slow in my speech, you know, that's kind of like, you know, the vibe, you know, is I killed the vibe right there. I went from high pitch to low pitch. Right. The same concept in sales. If you're like now there's there's a hesitation. People always say, oh, he's the sales guy. She's a sales guy. And we're not really salespeople. I always refer to ourselves as advisors or consultants. And that's when you actually differentiate. That's it. We're here to we're providing a solution. I don't have to sell you like the piece of the puzzle. We can help them, you know, with that. We yeah, we identify we match, you know, the product to the right, you know, potential prospect for it. That's all service. And that's the thing. You don't have to pay. I mean, sales is a process. It's it's it's an artisan. There's a science behind it. There's methodology and all stuff. That's the technical stuff. But in essence, it is still an exchange of ideas and an exchange of personal feelings and energy. And if I do the right thing with you and I do it correctly, you know, first of all, obviously, you don't want to be pitching the wrong audience because you're going to have a lot of nose. And then that's the other. So talking about your first question about the struggle, if you prospecting in the wrong place and the example of people are just coming to me for the wrong, you know, aspect of things. I'm not going to be your customer. So therefore, you're just wasting time. And then you're going to probably like, I hit 10 ,000 people today and I got none. I did a 10 ,000 people you need to reach out. Oh, you can hit one person. That is correct. And then it's over. Yeah. And if you're spamming, you're going to get a bad name, too, in addition to that. And that's the last thing you want is is to spam someone. Let me ask you this, because I know you are a rule breaker. So what makes you a rule breaker? Have you always been a rule breaker? I bet you have. Oh, I've always been. I've always dressed different, different. I don't do I don't do what others do. I do my I do me. I mean, when I was a kid, you know, so it's a good joke. You know, most of my kids, you know, my, my, my, at least in my my age group in my neighborhood, they played soccer. Right. Football. Right. Well, football in Europe and soccer here. So and so for me, I went to martial arts. So I was different. You know, you know, I did gymnastics, believe it or not, for a year. Most most guys were not gymnastics. I did, you know, at least not in that age group. When breakdance began, you know, became something. I was one of the first breakdancers, you know, and doing my thing there. They used to call me like, you know, breakdance guy, you know. So I've always got something different. I dress differently. I talk differently. I did different things. I do more things than, you know, I should. You know, sometimes I do two, three things at the same time in business. The same thing. If if if literally we look at my industry and most people would not recognize that today, but it is a fact. A lot of the things that are used in the industry, I used them before anybody else did them. I actually started them. And now, unfortunately, we don't copyright these things. We work for companies. You know, you just do them and the companies take them and they become theirs and then other companies copy from them. But a lot of the practices, I actually wrote the book for them, you know, in the 90s, and they were copied. And they're now part of the industry, stuff like that. So I even, you know, use processes that that most of the plants, let's say, in my world. And today they still don't do it. And I'm good example. I'll give you an example. So it's concrete in our business with the Medicare, you know, business. You know, you present to beneficiaries and most of the people we know, telesales is one thing, you know, you record. But but when you do formal sales in person sales, you don't record. I started recording presentations and acknowledgment of of actually signing up and rolling the plan back in 2015.
A highlight from 1254. SEC WARS! | Gensler vs Peirce, Mila Kunis NFTs, & Star Wars
"All right, so we're going to get into the SEC and their war on the NFT market and their recent filing, of course, against Stoner Cats. We'll break all that down for you. But more importantly, we'll get into more of a depth of why these projects are where they are and really what could be done about this for the future, because there's a lot of implications here. My name is Paul Berra. Welcome back into Tech Path. Before we get started, I want to thank our sponsor, and that is iTrustCapital. If you guys want to do long -term holding of your crypto assets and you want to put it in a crypto IRA, you can do that with iTrustCapital. And there's a couple of ways you can do it. Start a new one, or you can actually transfer in one of your current IRAs. So it's very easy to do. All you have to do is sign up, and you can check the platform out just by going over to iTrustCapital and seeing what they've got to offer for your particular situation. Very easy. Use our link down below. It's going to give you a $100 funding reward to get started. All right. So let's get into it today. I want to lead off with a few clips here. We'll go into a lot of lineup here, I think, that will frame up exactly what happened during the Stutter Cats. And this is very important, because you may be a brand. You may be someone that's interested in the FT market. This is something you want to watch. You don't want to miss this one. So let's go to the first clip. We were having dinner with Gary Vee at the time, and they were talking about crypto. And I was like, this is dumb. And then as the years went on, I was like, I think I'm on the wrong side of history on this one. I think I was wrong. Okay. So interesting position. I think some people kind of look at it that way. But let's continue on telling this story, because there's a lot here that breaks out where the future is going to go with this. Listen in. Hey, babe. Yeah? What's blockchain? It's like what information is stored on. So like, it's, you know, what information is stored on? Hey, babe. Yeah? What's decentralization? Oh, there's not one person in charge of anything. So it's everybody keeps everybody else in check. Hey, babe. Yeah? What's Ethereum? So Ethereum is a general purpose blockchain. All right. We had to put that one in there. What a great, great piece that is where Mila learns a little bit more about Ethereum. Let's go over to now that she's understood what's happened and how this market is really a differentiator for pretty much everyone, she wants to do something about it. So listen in. And I'll tell you why. Like all jokes aside is because it made me nervous and I felt like it was a very masculine area. Like everybody that I knew that knew anything about it at the time was always a man and I found it to be really empowering. And so through the pandemic created a form of entertainment called stoner cats that we're releasing in a couple of weeks that is an NFT and you can buy such stoner cats. And then that is your token to then watch a five minute long piece of entertainment. It sounds like a cool idea. And I know you've had experience in animation and comedy. So we have a, I think we have a picture here of the stoner cats. This is yep. And it's really cool guys, because I'll tell you, in the very, yeah, so here's the thing on it. I was going to say cats just sit around anyway. Well guess what happens when they get stoned. The people that we got to do the voice is everybody just did it because they thought that it was different and fun and we all wanted to do it for the right reasons. And it brings ownership of content back to the artist and cuts out the middleman. And so if people like the NFTs and they buy it as tokens, then more shows will be made. Look at those eyes. I mean, come on. Come on. All right, so I want to play another clip that goes into how she integrated this into Hollywood. Listen it. So Mila was surprised by how many people she was able to recruit to take part in the new medium, including Jane Fonda. We were like, who can be Mrs. Stoner? Like we should get somebody like Jane Fonda. It would be so amazing to get somebody like Jane Fonda. And I was like, OK, let's just call Jane Fonda. I know this is an incredibly weird request. Would you ever do something like this? And they're like, I don't quite get it, so I'm going to say yes. It's just different and everybody wants ownership of content to go to the artist and this kind of allows that to happen. So again, really kind of hitting on the thread that I think everybody understands what decentralization and NFTs and in general, smart contracts really mean for the future of content and they hit it on the head. There was the OpenSea launch, of course, fully sold out and it just happened in like seconds. It was a pretty fast and very successful run. The key here is that if you look at the data, this comes back from a tweet back in 2021 when they launched this. There was the Ethereum gas fees for this, so you can see it had an immediate impact on ETH in general. And overall, the gas fees were kind of a thing and so much so that we actually had a song written about this. So listen in. This is a story of superfood, how he tried to get a stoner cat, and with a snafu in the gas limit, he lost $13 ,000 right on fire. Gas fees. Now, this is back in the era of when we weren't really seeing the advancements in blockchain that we are now, especially in smart contracts, obviously gas fees were part of this. This is, I think, has really started to be evolved over the last 12 months with just so much innovation in the space. But I think this also caught a little bit of the SEC's eye, possibly. There could be some theory behind that. But the interesting thing was is just how fast this thing sold out. Listen to this clip. Thank you so much for honestly believing in this entire crazy concept and idea and being a part of it, because it has been a whirlwind and we're so excited to continue down this journey with all of you. We're so sorry that we broke Ethereum, but also, fuck it. Sorry the gas fees were high, I tried to waive them, it clearly didn't work, I'll work better, I'll try harder. We're so excited, genuinely shocked at any and all of this, and just want to say hi and thank you and welcome to the team. We're excited for you to join the team. Thanks for being aboard. So again, this is innovation at work. It's how startups go out. And I think from a content creator standpoint there, this is the right kind of vision of what Hollywood most likely is going to be doing in the future, provided they can get past these kind of scenarios that the SEC is placing on them. Let's go to the next clip, which just shows you a trailer just how much work was put in this project. I have regrets. Run, Chuckie boy, run! Run! What Ow! in the poltergeist? Fuck! All right, so many episodes lined up on this, their friends, kind of everybody got together, had watch parties. This became a bit of a community, and I think that's again another big part of how fans work, especially when you look at content and how that gets released in Hollywood today. As for Stoner Cats, they actually released all six episodes, so you can kind of see the website here, scrolling through all the episodes, all delivered as promised. And that was really the goal, and I think that's the position of where all of this starts to stem from, especially in the position of what's happening with the SEC. If you scroll further down on the website, I thought this was cool. Website Stoner Cats content will be available in perpetuity using decentralized hosting and archiving service R -weaves. So again, they were utilizing literally from the beginning all the way through the blockchain to deliver this kind of content. These are the kind of technologies that will start to shift content creation. You often wonder why and what is driving the SEC's decisions on this. If you go over to the SEC, we'll get into the actual complaint here. So they charged creator of Stoner Cats' web series on registry offering securities. I'll read a few things from it. Raised approximately $8 million from investors to finance the animated web series called Stoner Cats. $800 each, selling out 35 minutes. Marketing campaigns highlighted specific benefits from owning, including option for owners to resell on secondary market. Marketing campaign on the Stoner Cats team emphasized its expertise, and Hollywood producers agreed, leading investors to expect profits. That's a reach. Configured the Stoner Cats NFTs to provide a Stoner Cat 2, a 2 .5 % royalty, which is happening on the aftermarket. Leading purchases to spend more than $20 million in at least 10 ,000 transactions. So you had $20 million plus the $8 million, about $28 million, almost $30 million on an animated series that was done based off of blockchain. And remember, this just as a side project, so very successful. Further into the complaint right here, cease and desist order to pay a civil penalty of $1 million. The order establishes a fair fund to return the monies that injured investors. I love how they said that. Injured investors. Paid to purchase NFTs. I also agreed to destroy all of the NFTs in its position. This is a problem because, again, this is almost anything you can imagine that would go in the secondary market. I mean, comics, collectibles, luxury goods, anything and everything could be a security. So I think this continues on its hypocrisy of where this is going. Here was a course Hester Peirce and you, Ada, coming in and saying they didn't necessarily agree. Let me zoom in on this right here. Lacks any meaningful limiting principle. Creativity would wither in the shadow of legal ambiguity. She deserves clear guidance in talking about Kunis here. The fact that money is involved does not transform into NFTs, into securities. The enforcement action involves activity that we believe constitutes a fan crown funding, which is a common phenomenon used all the time. Soner Can's NFTs are not a different from Star Wars collectibles in the 1970s. So again, big problem. Toy company Kenner sold early bird certificates, redeemable for future Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia and R2 -D2 action figures. So you had membership scenarios that played into this and the sales of those certificates helped build a diehard community around Star Wars.
A highlight from Ep376: Less Will Go Wrong With A Checklist Like This
"You'd be surprised how many things you can make a mistake when you don't have a good checklist and a lot less will go wrong if you listen to this episode, take a good note and have a checklist similar to what I'm about to share. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster? It's your host, Adam A. Adams. And funny story is that this last week I was playing with different microphones. I switched from a different mic to the mic that I'm using now and I didn't check everything. And I ended up recording a couple of episodes that sounded pretty bad. One of them was a solo episode and the other is an interview episode. And so unfortunately, I'm going to go back and rerecord the solo episode another time. Took me like more than a half an hour the first time. And, you know, time is valuable. Time is money. Time is our most valuable asset. You've heard all of that. And I wasted it. I wasted it by preparing, getting in the right headspace and then pressing record. But I mistakenly didn't have the microphone hooked up to where it needed to be hooked up. And if you don't have the microphone hooked up to the right mic, then it'll sound crappy. And for a solo episode that's about a half an hour, I don't want to put you through that. I don't want to put you through having to listen to that. I don't think that's the right thing to do. And so I'm actually going to go and I'm going to re -record that episode and record it again. So my teammate, luckily, Jen, reached out to me and she says, hey, you know, the audio quality doesn't sound normal. I'm not sure what's going on. And she sent me these two recordings, the one that's a solo and the one with an interview. And I listened to it and I'm like, shit, man, I'm using my webcam mic. So it's because I turned my RODECaster off that disconnected my microphone. And then when I came back, it just, I didn't double check. I did double check in the beginning of this episode before I started recording this one. Of course, I went in and I was like, I need to do this. And it brings me back to when I was a newer podcaster, I was better at using a checklist. I had a checklist of six different things. Today, I'm going to talk about 10 ideas and you can take them or leave them. I'm going to give you like 10 ideas that will go on a checklist that will help you. But when I first started, I kept on recording. I kept on thinking that I was recording an episode, but I never pressed the record button. So I'd sit there for all of that time and energy, but I never even pressed record. Another bad thing is to actually record the episode, but not be using the right mic. And so your sound quality sounds really bad and it's hard to understand you. It's hard to hear you. And the echo and the reverb kind of gets in the way of the content for your listener. And so I had a checklist and a couple of the things were make sure that you press record, make sure that you're using the right microphone. So double check the microphone every single time before you record. And it reminds me of a story that my buddy of mine told me. It's about an airplane and how he literally almost died. I'll share that in a second. Before I share that with you, maybe I'll go over these 10 things that you could use as part of your own checklist. The 10 things that I've got written down here are A, make sure that you get enough sleep. It kind of sucks to go into a recording when you don't get enough sleep. So potentially you could even have as part of your checklist, make sure I go to bed at 9 PM the night before or 10 PM or whatever works for you. Make sure that I sleep in until 7 AM on this day because I really got to be functioning well and sleep is an important part of that. Another thing that you may add to your checklist. The second thing that you might want on your checklist is food. Now, some people say that you are a lot more groggy. It's harder for you to think clearly. Some people and I would say venture to say more of the doctors and neuroscientists are going to agree with this. They say if you eat within two or three hours of recording, your brain function is just not going to be as good because kind of like the digestion, the energy that is taken to digest all that food. It takes some resources from the rest of your body, your mind, and you are likely to have a worse recording if you eat right before, especially if it's a big meal. And so the thought is for you, is that right or is that wrong? If you don't eat, are you stressed? Are you going to be more distracted because your stomach is growling or are you going to have more energy? It's possible you might have more energy by eating. But most of the science would point to don't eat within three hours. So you might say if you're going to have a lunch break and you're going to go out to a restaurant and have a big meal, like let's just say noon, you probably wouldn't want to have 2 p .m. appointment for a podcast if you knew that you were going to be eating or drinking alcohol or something like that. So just make this as a consideration. Am I in a fasted state or am I in a fed state? Whichever one works best for you. Again, I'll repeat that on number two about food that the science would normally point to that you shouldn't eat within three meals of a time that you have to be eloquent, have a time to be able to think sharply, ask good questions to your guests or put out really good content. You just need to consider if food or the lack of food should be part of your checklist. The third idea that I've got for you as part of this checklist that you may or may not use is pre prep. It's what is the pre prep that I've done or am doing or the research? And so, for example, I'll just be completely honest with you. I don't really do a lot of pre prep. I might be a bad example of this, but I don't mind winging it either. I don't mind jumping in. And I think we can always have a great product for our listener by the way that we go into something. So pre prep on a solo episode would be do all of your research ahead of time and pre prep on an interview episode. Like, for example, you read that guy's book or you read that you go to her blog or you see what her company is or you check out what stages he's been on or you listen to her podcast prior to the recording or you read her blog or whatever it is. You do some research on that person. You find them on LinkedIn. You see what they're posting about. You get to know them. You get to know their book. You get to know their podcast and that can arm you with other additional questions. Now, for me, I'm more than happy, at least on my podcast, the podcast on podcasting. I know that I can ask questions that is going to benefit my listener regardless if I do that or not. I'm going to save my time and that's not going to be on my checklist. Might actually need to be on yours. So again, the third thing is your pre prep, which is research, doing your due diligence on the person that you're interviewing. The fourth thing that I have written down that is a huge possibility for you is your wardrobe and makeup. So for example, I don't wear makeup. I can't say that I never have. There was a Halloween that I had a little bit of fun. I'll say that much, but typically saying that's not for me. I don't really have any makeup that I need to wear. It might be because I'm a guy or it might be because who knows, but that's just not something I have to focus on. So the makeup isn't going to be part of mine. But maybe, you know, shaving my beard, maybe giving my beard a trim or doing my hair or putting on a hat, maybe making sure that I have a collared shirt on or a button up shirt or maybe just making sure I have a shirt at all. Because sometimes I record sleeveless. I'll get home from the gym. I'll have some energy. I would have had an idea that came to me while I was doing some curls or some push ups or something. And then I'll have an idea and I'll just run home and I'll get excited about it. Jump right on the computer and start recording. But again, the fourth thing is consider your wardrobe or your makeup. Am I wearing? Am I looking the part that I want to look? Am I showing up the way that I want to show up for my person? And that also goes to your solo episodes, especially if you're recording. Listen carefully, because I've got some ideas here on the wardrobe and makeup on your solo episodes. There's a couple of reasons why you might want to do this. Number one is if you're recording video, then of course, you're going to want to look good on camera. But here's the secondary thing that most people don't think about is if your hair's messed up or even if you like forget to brush your teeth and you got rank breath, honestly, we'll distract you. Honestly, we'll take some of your confidence away. In some cases, if you're not wearing a suit jacket or even a collared shirt or something, for some people, that action, that omission of not putting on a certain thing or having the makeup done or having your hair done or having deodorant on or brushing your teeth or something like that, it will distract you so much that you'll put out bad content. You will not be able to put out good content. And so it gets into our mentality, it gets into our psychology and actually has us put out worse product than we could if we were to dress sharp. So even just doing a solo episode, regardless if we're recording it for the video to be shown at all, it may be in your best interest to look the part. The thoughts in your mind when you are looking sharp and feeling sharp, feeling like you did something like even just making your bed that day, hey, I'm going to make my bed. Now I feel better. Now I can go and do the rest because how you keep your house is how you do everything. That's what they say. So just make it a consideration. Should I add, you know, what my wardrobe or hair or makeup or making my bed is going to be? Should I be trimming my beard, whether I'm using video on or whether I'm having the video off? Make that consideration. Should I put this on my checklist? The fifth thing that you may want to have on your checklist is, am I standing up? I used to have a standing desk and I had a sitting desk and I started recording all of my episodes sitting down and then I found out that it will work better. You will have a better energy if you stand up. And so I would try to remember to go over to my other computer because I didn't have a convertible desk. My desk wasn't able to convert from standing to sitting. I had two different desks. I had a sitting one with three monitors and a standing one with two monitors. I did most of my work on my sitting desk with my three monitors, but when I wanted to put out a good product, I would go over to my other desk and I would stand up. And by standing up, I would have a better energy. I would approach it a little bit easier. And actually, when you're sitting down, you kind of close off your diaphragm. And so it's harder for you to breathe. It's harder for you to catch your breath. And in some cases, you sound like you don't want to be there. So for me, I would try to remember I'm going to get out of this desk and I'm going to go to the other desk. Or for others, you have to remember, hey, I've been sitting down, but for recording, I want to be standing up. And so you might convert your desk. Either way, I'm not saying you absolutely have to stand up for your recordings, but it is a good idea to stand up for your recordings. You will actually have better energy and you'll sound better and it'll just sound like you are more clear and ready. I believe that I think better on my feet. I know that sounds interesting. Excuse the pun, but I really believe that I think better when I'm on my feet. When I'm sitting down, I am more sluggish. I am more tired. I am more relaxed. When I'm standing up, it gives me that little bit of energy. And when I had the two different desks, I actually just closed down that office. Now I just have a home office. When I had that office, sometimes I would start recording sitting down and I'd be like, ah, I actually can tell that I'm not getting as good of a recording right now because I'm doing it seated. And so I had to remember to stand up to either convert my desk or to get up and go to the other desk or whatever it took to actually be standing. Because I would prefer that. And so if that's you, you might want to add that. Hey, make sure I'm standing up. You write down your own checklist and you go down the list. Sleep. Yep. I got plenty of sleep. Food. Yep. I remember to fast. Meal prep. No, not meal prep. Pre -prep. Research. Yep. I know about this person that I'm going to be interviewing. I have some ideas of what I'm going to ask her. And so I'm ready to go. Makeup. Wardrobe. All right. Am I wearing clothes that I feel comfortable in that make me feel energized, that make me feel proud of myself or confident about myself? And same thing with your breath and maybe even your stinky pit in some cases, right? Think about those things. And then the fifth one is standing up. The sixth one is a mic check. This is the one that I keep freaking messing up. And remember, remember for a second, I've got a story about a checklist about my friend literally almost died. Like he was really, really close to dying because he didn't follow the checklist. And so I will share that, but I want to get through these 10 things and we're going to take a quick break and then I'll share the story about my friend who literally almost died. Like not figuratively, actually was so fricking lucky that he's alive right now. All right. So number six was a mic check. What that means, I use Zoom. And so what I do to test my mic is that I go into the Zoom settings at the time that I'm starting it and I check my microphone. I push test mic and then it'll play it back to me and I'll make sure that the sound quality is what I'm looking for, that it's using the expensive mic that I spent the money on. Then why am I not using it rather than using my webcam like I did recently? We're going to get into that. So number six was a mic check. So you do a mic check. You make sure that you're using the right mic. Number seven is you do a pre -interview. These 10 things that I'm giving you, they don't have to be your exact checklist. But this is a framework of how to build your checklist. The seventh thing is to do a pre -interview. Now, I don't have this written down on a checklist of mine. Even back in the day, I didn't have it written down. It was so natural to me. I didn't have to write it down. You might want to. The thing that I would do and always do is before I start recording, I naturally do this. I say, this is who my avatar is. This is who my listener is. Tell me what you would like to pour into them. If you only left this podcast today with me and you only said one thing to that person, what would it be? And so that has always become part of my natural way to go. Before I start recording, I do. That brings me to an extra thing that maybe you should add to your checklist. Cause I've made this mistake before as well. So I'm going to actually give you 11 things. That's funny. I just came up with another one that I've made the mistake. And so I'm typing it down to make sure that I share it with you. I've made this mistake before and it is that I jump into the recording. I might just be meeting the first person for the first time, or I might know their first name, but not their last. And maybe they have a complicated first name or spelled super weird or from a country that you're not familiar with. Like a culture that is new to you, you know, where they have silent letters where you would normally want to use that. Like French language and English language are very different. There's a lot of silent letters in English that are completely different than the silent letters in French. And you get all of these new things like X's do a certain thing in the Spanish language, X's do a certain thing in the French language, X's do a certain thing in the English language. And in some cases they can be pronounced in different ways or the vowels might be a soft vowel or a hard vowel. There's a number of things. And so what I continue to do is I'll actually done this so many times with the person's name where I do all of the other things. And then I jump in, I'm like, welcome back to this podcast, whatever your podcast name is. Welcome back to the podcast. It's your host, Jon Smith. And today I'm joined with shit. How do you pronounce your name? Okay, let's start over. So there's an option. So you should just do it in the beginning as a part of your checklist. Like you should just make sure and verify that you are pronouncing somebody's name the way that they want you to pronounce it saying maybe they go by a nickname. Maybe they go by John or Jonathan. Mel or Melanie, whatever. Maybe they go by something else. So how do you want to be addressed? How do you pronounce your name? Okay, cool. And now you're in, now you're ready. Something that I hear people do is I just mentioned, I'm like, Hey, this is whatever podcast today I'm joined with shit. What's your name? I've recorded a couple of times where I've been in that position where I'm like, crap, man, I actually don't know how to pronounce your name. And then they correct me while I'm recording and I've published it that way. And I don't agree with that at all. I feel like that's the wrong thing to do. I don't think I should have done that. And I don't think you should do that. If you don't know how to pronounce somebody's name, you should get that cleaned up in the pre -interview time prior to ever actually recording. So you might ask them in the pre -interview, you might double check, Hey, how do you pronounce your name or what name do you want to go by? You might ask, what do you want to pour into my perfect listener? This is what they're going through. This is what they're worried about. What are you passionate about? Those are some good things. So I'm going to say that number seven is the pre -interview where you try to figure out all of those details. I'm going to say number 11 is making sure you're pronouncing the name right. Then go back into number eight, the avatar. Who is your avatar? Here's the thing that I've noticed. This happens so many times. Somebody is going to record an episode and they will not have their perfect listener in mind. They'll have a general idea of who might be listening. And they might even think that they have multiple avatars and so they're doing whatever or they might think that they're talking to a whole stage. Yeah, sure.
A highlight from Marriage as Completion: One Flesh
"Welcome to Gospel in Life. When it comes to marriage, we often use words like soulmate or the one. These words can reveal an underlying belief that to have a good marriage, you just have to find the perfect person. But the biblical vision for marriage is starkly different. It's a way for two imperfect people to help each other become who God intended them to be. Listen as Tim Keller explores the meaning of marriage. This is the sixth week. I understand that everybody wants to buy the series of tapes on marriage. And Jim Irwin tells me that if it's long enough, if the series is long enough, the sales will be such that we'll be able to buy our own building. And so I'm thinking of, you know, this is the sixth in a series of 652 talks on marriage. No, this is our sixth talk on this passage, the classic text in the scripture on Christian marriage, Ephesians 5, and I would just like to read it to you and then continue our exposition of it. This is the sixth week we've been on it. Ephesians 5, and sorry about my sound and sorry about the occasional memory lapses that I'm bound to have tonight. But let's see if we can muddle through best we can. It's Ephesians 5, and we'll go verses 21 to 33. It's a great passage to know by heart. Here it goes. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body of which he is the savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church, for we are members of his body. For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery, but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. This is God's word. Now there's been topics, and in the early part of the series I said we were going to move through topics. We said we would look at marriage as ministry, we'd look at marriage as covenant or commitment, we've been looking at marriage as friendship, but tonight I'd like to bridge out of, finish up, very briefly, the idea of marriage as friendship and bridge into another section. We said the purpose of marriage is friendship. However, we also said this passage teaches us that there's a structure, there's a role structure in marriage, that the role of husband and wife is not reversible and it's not interchangeable. There is, as one person said, there's a mutuality between husband and wife that we see here, as we will take, start to look at tonight. There's a mutual submission in love, and yet the commands are not the same to both. There's an asymmetrical mutuality that this passage is talking about. That it's true that husband and wife are one flesh, and yet the two pieces, when you put the one flesh, it's one flesh because two pieces fit together, yet when you take a look at the two pieces separately, you discover that they're not identical. They're equal, but they're not equivalent. Now, what I want to do is to return to where we were, and that is this concept that in marriage you become one flesh, and I'll show you how this bridges us from the end of us talking about marriage as friendship into talking about the role structure of marriage. The Bible says a husband will leave his mother and father and cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This word one flesh is so strong it means that there's a possibility of deep unity and deep oneness when two people of two different genders enter into a permanent, exclusive, binding, legal commitment to share their entire lives with each other. When that happens, there's a potential for deep oneness that no other relationship has the potential for. By talking about two married people as one flesh, I think I may have referred to this. Again, this is one of the things I can't remember. You know, in the Bible, the word flesh doesn't simply mean your body. It doesn't simply mean like what the English word flesh means, which always means simply skin and sinew and blood and guts. Actually, there's a place in the Bible where it says, where God says, I will pour out my spirit on one flesh, and on all flesh, excuse me, I will pour out my spirit on all flesh. There I go. And that doesn't mean I will pour out my spirit on everybody's body. It means I'll pour out my spirit on all people. And see, the word flesh means a person. And when it says the two will become one flesh, it says you're one person. You're really no longer the same two people, but you're a third entity. You're a new compound, just like two chemicals come together, and they interact, so they become a third kind of chemical. They're not the same. It's not like two chemicals that just happen to be sitting in the same test tube with each other, one on top of the other, or even intermingled. You see what the idea is here? If you take two chemicals that do not react with each other, but just sort of put them together the way you put together, the way you sort of knead, you know, let's say chocolate chips into the dough. You know, you just work it through, but you've still got dough and you've still got chocolate chips. We're talking about something different. Two chemicals that when they come together interact in such a way that their molecular structure is changed, and they become something that's third, that's new. And that's what the Bible is saying. The potential is for two people who come together in the bond of marriage. This oneness is tremendously deep. It's organic. It's vital. It's not mechanical. I know that the modern world still has tremendous trouble with this idea of the one flesh. A lot of people suggest that it's oppressive. We'll have to be talking about that the next two weeks. But the modern world says don't get married, live together. But if you have to get married, make sure that you always make sure that the relationship is continually fulfilling your needs. Make sure that you maintain your own economic and financial and social infrastructure, so if things don't work out, you've got something to fall back on. See, that's a complete antithesis to the idea of one flesh. Can you imagine the legs deciding, look, we need our own nervous system and we need our own blood supply in case the hands develop an infection. We don't want anything to do with them. But that's exactly what prenuptial agreements are. Now, how is it that this one fleshness can be developed, or let me ask it another way. Why is it that one fleshness, this kind of deep oneness doesn't three ways that it can happen and three reasons it doesn't happen, the same three reasons. If you do these three things properly, it develops deep oneness. If you fail to do them or if you do them wrongly, it creates what most marriages are, and that is basically business partnerships. Now, we said the deep oneness develops like this. This passage is saying, the two shall become one flesh. Therefore, a husband relates to a wife and a wife relates to a husband. As you relate to your body, that's how one you are. That's why as we read through it says that the husband cares for his wife the way he cares for his body. What is your relationship with your body? You really aren't separate from your body and yet you can think about your body and you can talk about your body, you can act on your body as an object, and yet it's pretty close to who you really are. In fact, it is who you really are. And we said there's three things that you have to do to develop this one fleshness or three things that if you blow will create the lack of it. It will undermine the one fleshness. One is you've got to let your spouse deal with you about your uncleanness, about your blemishes, about the unsightly nasal hair. We said last week, this was at the very end of last week, we said when this passage talks about how the husband has to care for the wife and wants to present her spotless and without blemish and clothed and beautiful. And then he says just like you deal with your own body. Well, how do you deal with your body? See, you wipe your body. You trim your body. You deal with the unsightly fat on your body. You buy clothes to hide the unsightly parts of your body while you're working at And it. of course, you have the right to do that. The scripture says that when a spouse comes into your life, that spouse now has the same kind of rights, the same kind of access to your faults and your flaws. And therefore, your spouse has the right to talk to you about what's wrong with you. And if you are touchy, and if you refuse to let him or her in, and if you start to say, you mind your business and I'll mind mine, nobody has the right to talk to me about those things, then you're denying the one flesh nature and the one flesh potential and the deep ability to really change and grow and sanctify and be perfected and redeemed and become the glorious people that God wants you to be through this marriage. So unless you let your spouse really deal with your faults, unless you let your spouse in, unless you let your spouse have that kind of access, there won't be one flesh. Secondly, and I think we mentioned this last week too, secondly, your spouse has the right to reprogram your self -image. Last week, we said this briefly, I'll say it briefly again, but let me show you why so many marriages fall apart because this ability is abused. When you get married, your spouse has got such a tremendous power over how you think of yourself. Remember this at the end of last week? Years ago, this insight, which is very, very biblical, came from a paper that my wife read by Arvin Engelson. You remember that? Arvin, where are you? We don't even know. He was a student at Gordon -Conwell. We barely knew him. He had a paper that Kathy had to read in some kind of seminar. It was on marriage as a vehicle of redemption, and it is such a powerful paper. It shaped my whole understanding of what the Bible says about marriage. I've never met the guy, and I have no idea where he is. Arvin Engelson, if you're listening to this tape, I want you to know your paper has meant a lot to me. And in that paper, he says, marriage is re -creational. And these are some of the things he says. He says, your entire life, your entire self -image is basically a compilation of verdicts that have been passed on you, things that people have said about you. Now, when you get married, your spouse has got massive ability to overturn, has the power to overturn all those verdicts in a single word. Your spouse has the ability to reprogram your self -appreciation. Your spouse can say, I don't care what anybody else ever, ever said, you're smart. You are a bright person, and you will become feeling bright. You'll feel that way. And if everybody else has said, I think that you are a louse, I think that you amount to nothing. Your spouse says, I think you're a significant human being. I think you contribute to so many people's lives, you'll start to feel significant. It's also true if your spouse starts to say, you're a louse. You'll never amount to a hill of beans. What that does is it completely destroys you. You see, marriage, you put into the, when you get married, you put into the hands of your spouse the ability to make or break you. Now, I'll tell you why this deep unity doesn't work, doesn't develop in most people. Because when you get married, you have no idea the power you've got. You start, when you get into your first argument, you start to deal with your spouse the way you've dealt with your brothers and your sisters and your parents and your roommates and your friends. And you say things just like you said to them. And you say mean things like you said to them. And you don't think that it's going to go any deeper into this person's heart than it other people will walk away, other people will get over it. Look out. Look out. You think you've got a BB gun in your hands and you've got a rocket launcher. You think all you're going to do is sort of, you know, give them a little flesh wound. The next thing you know, there's nothing there but a pair of sneakers with smoke coming out of them. That's the funny illustration. The awful illustration is I'm thinking of Lenny in Mice and Men who doesn't know his own strength, remember? And who has a little girl, has a girl and trying to talk to her and trying to show her what he wants to say. And she starts to scream and he says, don't you do that. Don't you say anything. And next thing you know, it says, what does it say? Her head was flopping back and forth because Lenny had broken her neck. She was dead. He had no idea how strong he was. He didn't know his own strength. He meant well. If you use your ability to reprogram your spouse's self appreciation, if you learn how to go into somebody's life and even when you criticize, you do it in a way that's affirming. If you learn how to do that, and friends, you need to be doing it with your father and your mother and your parents and your brothers and your sisters and your roommates. You need to be doing it anyway. They're not getting killed by your sharp tongue. They're not getting killed by the nasty things you say, the identifying words you say. But if you get into a marriage with these kinds of speech patterns, you will find that you will kill each other. If on the other hand, you start building one another up, what's fascinating is the more you affirm, you use that tremendous power to affirm the person, the easier it is for your spouse to open up about his or her faults. Because if you have a cradle of security for your moments of vulnerability, if you know that this is the one person who really respects me, knows me to the bottom and loves me and respects me, and that's a certainty in your life, it's like a ground note underneath everything else, then you have a sort of security, you have a from foundation which you can, for the first time in your life, admit your faults. Because you see, in the past, to even admit your faults was very difficult because you began to wonder whether you were any kind of decent person at all, but now you know you are because of what your spouse is saying to you. You know about your worth there. Your spouse does, as you see, this is a great mystery. The relationship between a man and a wife is like a Christ in the church. Of course, it's a fascinating mystery because, as you know, if you've been here and heard the preaching, you know that it's the Scripture that says that it's Christ who does that to you. Christ reprograms your self -image. Christ says, I died for you, and that's the only thing that matters. Christ says, let the fact that I died for you, let that be the weightiest fact in your life. Let that matter more than anything else. You matter to the only one who matters. See, Christ reprograms that. Next to Christ, the person who can do that the most effectively is your spouse because marriage is basically built on the dynamic of salvation. It's built on the pattern of salvation. That's the reason why Paul can go back and forth talking about Christ's salvation in relationship to us and the relationship between a husband and a wife. So in the same way, if you do that, if you affirm, if you use this tremendous ability to reprogram that person, self -image, you'll find that the person will open up more and more and the deep oneness will come. You'll have the ability to talk about one another's faults. But on the other hand, if you abuse this, if you don't realize you've got a rocket launcher in your hands, it's very fast what will happen. What will happen very quickly is both of you will realize I cannot trust the other person with what I really think because they can nail me like nobody ever has ever been able to nail me. So I'm afraid to do that. So what you do is you close up and you say this is, what happens is instead of deep oneness you have what most marriages are, which is a kind of a combination of business partnership and social contract and parenting partnership. A lot of people have a slightly better relationships after they're divorced raising their kids together, right? Which goes to show they never really developed or had the deep oneness. Now, so there's three things. The first thing is you've got to let your spouse in if you want that one fleshness. You've got to let your spouse deal with your faults, give them access, him or her access to your dirt. If you don't do that then you refuse, then you're denying the one flesh nature of marriage. Secondly, you've got to use this ability to reprogram your spouse's self appreciation and affirm that spouse. You've got to use that so carefully because if you abuse that your spouse will become, you know, two people who don't have a deep oneness. You're not one flesh. You're simply a partnership. You're not a new chemical, but rather you're just two chemicals that just happen to be interspersed amongst one another. You're laying there together and you interpenetrate one another, but you haven't actually become something new. Thirdly, the third thing is that you have got, if you want this one fleshness, you've got to recognize that neither of you can act independently of the other. Marriage is one of the most significant human relationships there is, but it's also one of the most difficult and misunderstood. In the meaning of marriage, Tim and Kathy Keller offer biblical wisdom and insight that will help you understand God's vision for marriage.

How are you? I'm good Loretta. So what is the older supplies you want, mate? It's not mine. It's actually my sisters. She has a refrigerator that she purchased when she got married in 1976 and it is her main fridge in her kitchen. And the door where you put the milk in is actually hold on, held together with gaffer tape. And she said, there's nothing wrong with it. Works perfectly, why would she get rid of it? I'm only a couple of years older than her. I feel like I'm virtually held together with gaffer tape. For each show, they just take me on push me out there like Mickey Rourke in the wrestler. So she peels back the capitate every time she opens the fridge. Do you want to get your milk out? It's all just help to get rid of the type. It's really bad, but I'm trying to shame her. I'm sorry. If it still keeps the milk cold, it works. There's nothing wrong with it, but it's one of the old one draw fridges with the little box racer in the end. You could barely fit that off a carrot in that little freezer because that's right for some reason it was mainly like an iceberg in there.

You go, yes, you can with us on the radio. You know, rather than in the trading post, it's like an advert. Can a trade it? On the training part. And now the saddest part of this is when they sew us to take their name, we'll have to sit in court and listen to this again and Eliza. Yeah. There's nothing in this.

Or what do you mean an ATM machine? I've been trying to sell it for a while now and just obviously a bit of a niche market, I can't get anyone to buy it. Yeah. Yeah, well, who's in the market? The man cave and everything. I'm very programming. Withdraw it. Charging your mates in the man cave. These beers aren't free guys. Cash out there. There is a feature. Works completely in that you just can't use it in public just the way the keypad set up. But yeah, definitely use it as your own personal one. It's got a safety on the bottom, all the cards and everything with it. And tell me this, how did you come into owning a cash machine in ATM? With the company just in the gray and industry and they will upgrade and get the new one and it was literally just down in the skip and I'm pretty grab a corner unique things like that. I said, we'll sort the rest outline. Sort the backhand out of it later. Let's just get the photo. Gorgeous had it for a while now.

I don't know why you need it, but I'm interested just because it's one of those things that you can't readily own. No, and not just that they're cutting down on them now. There's less and less. These should be like a museum piece. Yeah, if you had one in your man cave, you can cash out whenever you want. Yeah, it'd be like an arcade game. For a beer and say, oh yeah, he just goes to the garage. I'm interested Jason, I'm very interested. You know what, if someone was smart, then a man cave, you could print off your own money, couldn't you? And have like poker nights and a casino than a with your own currency. Is that good?

How much they weigh? There's solid old things, aren't they? Yeah, I think there's a couple on the kilo between two and 300 I reckon. Oh my word, so you need to make sure that are you delivering it to the right buyer. I can drop it off for extra no drama. Just open the tailgate and spin off yet. I lay the program to my card, so every time they put it in there, well don't say that. And you're up. All right, Jason's mucking around with this guy. He's a prankster. 9 four one four one O four three. If you want a working ATM for your man cave, or whatever you want to do with an ATM.

"No, it's not. Auntie Carrie hired a Dorothy, the dinosaur outfit for Audrey's. She came dressed as Dorothy the dinosaur. Must be nice. I think this is the right idea, yeah. Was she really there? Or did she just send somebody? Yes. Absolutely. So one say anything would I get there? That wasn't Carrie. I'd like to see her underneath it. No, I don't know, keep the head on, keep the head on. So you're not a fan of that for Gordy. Well, this is the argument we had last night. Bianco told everybody, we agreed on an animal theme. I didn't want to dress up. I kept trying to push back on it. Who says no to dressing up as an animal for the first birthday. And someone who loves all the photos on Instagram, you're not doing it for the ground. I just put myself in somebody else's shoes. If I got invited to a one year old kid's birthday and I had to go to a costume party and go to a costume shop. It's cute. The nice thing to do. It's like a fantasy for a small child. You eat them all these lovely stories describing animals, bring out all the animal kingdom that I'd be saying this to go there all the animal kingdom. They've heard any of the other food. Michael, the maker, they were hoodie, she both. They're coming tomorrow. Oh no, we don't, she does. One day, I remember dad. You were in outfit. Why were you just in your thongs? And nothing else. I mean, this is the job starts now. He's just been warming up for last year, right? The job starts out. I've been inside a pink inflatable unicorn outfit. My daughter's tenth being kicked and punched. You look miserable in a part of it. Yeah, but the job starts now. What's better to look back on photos and go, wow, dad was miserable as a unicorn, or look back on photos of me. He's like, dad was really happy in casual clothes. I can see you as a lovely line. Yes. This is what's happened. Bianca's told everyone on her friendship group. She's invited. She's told them it's an animal themed. Everybody all my Friends, I didn't tell them about the animal theme. Jack. And now it's going to be annoying. The last night, some streams crossed. And one of my friends said, do we have to dress up for this birthday? And I had to tell Bianca look, I've told I haven't told anybody that in my side of the invite list, so half the guests aren't know about the dressing. That's a faux pas with the costume. If you turn up and you're not dressed up in everyone else's. Well now it's now of muddied the water and we've pulled the pin on all dress ups. Oh wow and that's why this is the equipment of a kid like kicking over the table at their party. We've ruined it for everyone. That was your cake on there. You got it change it, Jack. Come on. You can. Everybody. Everyone's been told there's no more. Woken up, do you know what the thought of getting in a Lion outfit putting out a little Lion head on makes me happy today? Let me read you a text I sent you say actually. Is it fancy dress? This is one of my friends who found out that it might be fancy dress. Okay, look, it's animal thing, but I push back and asking people to dress up. I thought it was too much for a first person's birthday. Happy first person day to you. So no, don't dress up, but maybe if you have an animal on a T-shirt, you could wear this. Come on. The Christian O'Connell show podcast. Christian honor with Jack. This one is old. He will not remember any of it. One year birthdays are just an excuse for our adults to catch up and have a drink. Dress up should be safe for a couple of years of junior can actually enjoy it rather than being passed around some animal freaks. I'm a Jack. Wayne. Your numbers will check. I recognize your number. Not wine. I promise you as soon as he's at memory building age. I'll dress up for him. It's a big day for you. You're a memory building age. I will now go and become a lion. Patsy Jack also has to do something else. I'm guessing you can't get out of tomorrow. You are going to be performing. No, because Bianca's parents are here. There is a Venezuelan tradition. Which is like a happy birthday song, but not as we know it. Happy birthday, guys, for like what, 30 seconds? Yeah. And then everyone knows to start fading it out. The Venezuelan version of happy birthday is like Don McLean's American pie. It just keeps going. I wish I could album emotions. So what are you supposed to are you singing it? No, I gotta learn to sing it. That is so guitar. Wow. There's no way you can say no to that. That'd be an international incident with the Venezuelans. And we've got enough going on with China at the moment. They mentioned when they first got here a couple of weeks ago they said, hey, would be great if we sang this song. And I actually love that they speak Spanish to him and hope that he picks it up. That's beautiful. Speak a second language. I didn't realize that we would get to 24 hours before the birthday party, and it would be enforced that I had to help Bianca would have sprung on you. I wouldn't guess actually it was several days ago. There was a couple of weeks ago you won. It was mentioned, you know, without no one signed. But anything else you're so organized this year, you keep speaking into your Star Trek telephoto. Is Apple watch. Throughout the show, you're like, hey, Siri put calendar invite. Why didn't you do that one, slip the net? Did it? That one's unfortunate. So last night, they reminded me what it sounds like, and this is the Venezuelan happy birthday anthem. It's

Checks in with Patsy, everything seems to be fine at the moment. She's responding to medication. Meanwhile, back on with double thumbs up. Things that I really enjoyed this week, I am tearing my way through this Apple TV show shrinking. Yeah. Jason segel and Harrison Ford and an amazing cast, same creator, Bill Lawrence, and who did you have scrubs back? That was one of our favorite TV shows. One of my favorite shows. You know what, Brendan Fraser, obviously everyone talk about how great he is in the well. Do you remember his story arc in scrubs? I think his characters are Brendan Fraser was in our I do remember. It's amazing. Anyway, Bill Lawrence, the guy that came up with scrubs, he's come up with shrinking with Jason Segel. It is brilliant. That is the funniest show on TV right now. Love it very, very good. And the other thing that really made me laugh didn't necessarily agree with everything the young man was saying, but my God, what a special fearless. Chris Rock, it was the first time a streaming service and I bet more than do this. I actually did a live, it was amazing. Going on Netflix and it was counting down to something live happening that you could watch anywhere in the world. Chris Rock was performing live stand up recording his special live on stage in Baltimore, and I watched it 2 o'clock in the afternoon. In Sunday and Melbourne, it's an incredible stand up special. He's still one of the best. It's like a preacher at times the way stalks the stage, but there were some amazing stuff in there. It's very, very good. It's called selective outrage. It's on Netflix. Can't recommend that enough, check it out. Jackie boy, what's it for you? Yeah, I got a podcast that Bianca has been listening to and I've been tuning in and now I'm kind of obsessed with it. It's called if books could kill, get it on any podcast app. We were talking in the studio amongst our sales the other day about the book, the game. In the 90s, it was about how to pick up women manual. I think it was branded as that was a pickup artist manual, yeah. I've never read the game, but I listened to the podcast where they rip shreds into the game. It's kind of it's a very bitchy podcast, but they just pick a very popular book from history, and they tell you why it was no good. And the game is the episode that I got into. Cool. What's it called? If books could kill. All right, let's get the headlines next to a Patsy. But Christian O'Connell show podcast. Tell them what you made a bold move then. You ran your wife like John Patsy's news to ask a question. That could have been foolish. I mean, that was. I knew when I left that one bullet in a gun, I mean, I couldn't believe how you just rolled into that. Would I even maybe just a pause for thought? Like, what if Gordon's overslept a bit and she's enjoying some rare line and suddenly it's some question about a thing which can easily wait to the weekend. We have got this cruel irony at the moment. Bianca's parents are here and they're in an Airbnb. Is that the cruel irony? Carefully say. I know we're tired of a Friday. Cruel irony is like some new murder podcast, isn't it? On the iHeart platform. Cool irony. The irony is they've taken Gordy for the last three nights and we even moved the cod over to their apartment and he's sleeping really well over there and they're looking after him. But Luna, the dog has been sick this last week and he's got diarrhea. She's scratching on the door. That actually is a cripple irony. You've gained nothing to do those wet puddles. Yeah. I'd rather the dog when they have like this, just do it in the house, and I'll clear that up in the morning. Please. Let me just do it anyway. I don't care. Just so I can sleep. That is a cruel irony. That's tough. All right, time waste, extra time. Time waste of time, we're looking for your space celebrities. Put a celebrity into space. Like Spacey gray. Silver.

The Christian O'Connell show podcast. So I'm going to be doing this long weekend, getting ready for that Chinese war. I started to build a moat around my house yesterday, so that can hold them off for a bit. You're just adding to the fear mongering. Honestly, patty, you've got to have a word of your news colleagues. By 16 year old daughter yesterday said, oh, really worried about this war with China. Australia's not a war with China. First of all, look around the place, you know? What do they want here? Everything shots up about three in the afternoon, restaurants and cafes. The chain rule is getting pushed to the side and that. And China aren't going to impress with the lack of industry here. Honestly, if I for one will come on, you Chinese overlords. This weekend, if that is a countdown weekend, top 20, Chinese marching Anthos. But seriously, it's like in the newspapers. It's on the news now. They can show up pictures of rockets and things. And they just get a guy. They're getting expert on morning TV that says, he's a pundit about Chinese war. And he says, yeah, I think by 2025, I'll pull the trigger. What? What's the point of that? Haven't we all just been through enough? Coming out of COVID, now we've got to make up more things to be stressed about. You've got a beautiful weekend ahead of you. Your son Gordon turns one tomorrow. Well, I've been labeled the birthday Grinch in our House because do you think it's too much to ask people to dress up for a one year old's birthday? No.

Jack and I are going to rearrange we're coming with you. We see you there. And then we'll have a little walk on the beach together. Jackie, well, you've got a really special day tomorrow. Yes, my son's first birthday. We're doing a party in the backyard. How's the last year gone quick? Oh my God. I can't believe he's gone. That was so fast. I can remember still feels like only a couple of months ago that I told you we were even pregnant on the show. Wow. What a year it's been time to speed up when you become a parent. Yeah, honestly. Faster. Once he's at school, it's like a film. Well, I found that it does this Patsy in those first companies. It goes very quick and then so slowly during the day sometimes. You know when you get up early with you when you're like guys it's a 7 and it feels like I've been up for 9 hours. I know. When would this day end? Do you start adding, I can't deal 12 hours? Yeah. I can't do 12 more out of this. It's both. And so what are you doing for the first birthday party? Well, it's just gonna be a barbecue in the backyard. I'm convinced being younger that we'll just do sausages for the food. It doesn't surprise me. It's just a barbecue over a weekend. You should have a big old festival. No, exactly what you get at budding. Sausage, onion, bread, sauce, that's it. Everybody's happy. No, no, no. Nothing else. Cake. My mom is doing a cake. She's doing one of the ones out of their women's weekly birthday cake. That's great. Just like when I was a kid and he's gonna get the lion. And are you giving him a present you and Bianca? You know when they're older than they go, this is what we did when you won. Yes. We don't have anything for him yet. Okay. We've been thinking about the party so much every day I've been going home cleaning up the backyard, raking leads. You gotta do that every day. You're in The Wizard of Oz, what's your house gonna blow away? Every day. You leave. There's three more out there. That's two minutes done of all that Rachel can't get down to the shop come out and buy him a present. I'm sure by tomorrow. Something will come to us. All right, coming up next week into this week's double thumbs up. But Christian O'Connell show podcast. Let's do double thumbs up now. We go around the team and share the things that we're into at the moment. Patsy, what's it for you? ABC, this brilliant new series started on Tuesday night back in time for the corner shop. I'm not sure if you've seen other versions of this where they plop families in different decades through the ages and they have to live like someone else. It was a big year. I say the ones where they convert somebody's house until I can 1350s kitchen. Even how they're dressed and how they eat. Well, this is the same. And it's a corner shop. So they've set up this shop in botany on the side of where an alcohol shop used to be. And they've put a family, they've got three teenagers or actually their sons a little bit old a bit three kids and they're in this corner shop and they've started in, I think it was 18. I didn't 60s, so they've gone up for the first episode up to about 1920. And just have to do everything as they did at the shop. How did you persuade your teenage kids to do that? Exactly. Even I eating a salad at an argument on a 16 year old. Eat some food from the 1800s. What was it? Oh my God. Before. But the difference to the one that they did in the house, I guess everybody in the family can volunteer to do that. This affects people going. What if you want to get today's paper? Like a milk bar in the community where it is a hub, the same with this, so local residents or the neighbors are getting involved as well and coming in and they have to pay it. But what if I want to get a Mars bar on the public some kind of old school jerky? Oh, you can't. They made sweets in this first episode. That place is going to go out of business. I know. The other day was so close that I was so sad. I actually went in to say goodbye. Yeah. He couldn't fall the land rents in it. Yeah, it's very sad. It's tough. That's a hard pitch from the 1800s. So we're up to 1920 and it's going to go right up to 1950 and I can't or actually no, it might be like 1980. What does the TV show? What would it be seeing? Is it them just going this sucks? This floats awful day. Seriously, if I were 8 kids, this is what we're going to do is good TV show. We're going to turn the whole house away into the 1800s. You know what it is. It's great for kids to sit and just it's an eye opener of. We've got it so easy these days. Yeah. And we've worked really hard to get to this. Think about when we run our milk bar, how easy it is. It wasn't always so easy. Anyway, it's delightful. We're loving it, Audrey. Yeah, I will watch that. I'll check it out. What's it on? No, ABC on Tuesday nights at 8 for an hour. I think you probably can go back on ABC I view and check it out at any time. The other thing this week, this will change. I love things that make life easier, especially. And we don't know the show and tell. Bring it in, which I know is good for radio, but last weekend we had a big barbecue off with some of our friends. Like a dance off or rap battle. We're in charge of the ribs, the poor cribs, or rather. How'd you go? I've had the judges score it. Yeah, beautiful. But so we had to take them over to our friend's house. The problem with 30 centimeter. Foil, no seriously. We've got two buses. Patsy's materialized from the 1800s from that TV show. As misses miggins with her home economics wears. Because when you have to do the plate, right? So you've got it even just a normal sized dinner plate. You've got your ribs or whatever you sell. Yeah, got it very very, right?

Yeah we all wanna make a difference. Most of us want to make a difference in. I've made this pact with myself to release this notion that we all do anything. I'm gonna back on that because we've kind of stepped away from that in the program for a while. There's very few things we all do. I'm gonna leave it at that. How one person humana loan the way made a difference is what we're here to talk about today. In why that changed your ability for you to lead the change for the world. We're gonna hit that in a deeper way shortly. We all know people for one reason or another who are constantly rubbing us the wrong way. They say and do things which are off putting and totally inappropriate sometimes seemingly to be completely disagreeable to most of us feel difficult to authentically connect with. But that story changed for you. Insure we meet these people in their complete decks. Get you met somebody that changed his perspective for you. Can you share with our listeners. How story unfolded for you. Sure i'd be happy to so first of all. Thanks for having me on of course to be able to talk about this because this is it's interesting you say that we all want to make a difference. I change it a little bit in the sense that i feel like we all want matter i used to. I used to approach us as we all wanna change the world. We all want to leave our mark. We all want to be the next steve jobs at puts a ding in the universe. And all this but really at the end of the day we all wanna matter and that can be mattering to your family. Your community to the world to your employees are to your employer like however we define that and so. That's how i grew up. I grew up with this idea. That was gonna make this big difference. I was gonna matter in the world. The world was going to spend differently. Because i was here. Which is so absurd. What do you think about it. But as a kid you know. That's what life looked like for me at. My mom sewed snaps on my pajamas. So i so. I could snap on cape at night before went to bed. Now would run around the house jumping on the furniture. And saving the world from whatever's ailing it at the time as as six year old kid and then i just kind of progressed and iran with that notion as i got older i took the snaps off my most of my pajamas but but You know i still held onto that idea of what life was gonna look like an. I became a musician spent much of my life. Working at broadway touring around the country and around the world. And i lived a life where i did something and then when i was done doing it people leap to their feet and clapped and so every night of my life and did with a standing ovation which does wonders for the ego. By the way i would. I would totally. I totally recommend that to everybody listening to this. Hell yeah get. Can we just get that and have it. Follow us around. You know how great would be exactly you. People lead to their feet and clap. When you're done doing whatever it is that you do for a living i highly. I had this this this kind of strange way of looking at it where it's like. Well you know the world needs spin a different way. This absurd way of looking at it turned into. I'm not doing enough as a musician. I'm changing the world for these people in this moment but then they go home back to the regular lives. What else can i do. And i started chasing this idea of making this colossal huge difference in the world and then all of a sudden. I woke up one morning and i was forty years old and i realized that like wow. I'm just like working like everybody else of doing stuff like everybody else. I even lived in this in the next town over from where i grew up like i was supposed to leave new jersey to change the world. It's not going to start new jersey. That's going to start somewhere else. And and i realized that that i hadn't lived up to this idea of what my eight year old self had wished for me and fell into a deep depression like it didn't matter what i did at this point. It just wasn't gonna be good enough. I don't matter that is the the lens through which i saw my life through Forget that i did forget that. I had started a company. I had employees like built. Something i had family had an amazing wife kids. None of that mattered. Because i saw through this lens. And so i did. What any rational person would do. I sold everything that we own convinced my family that we should move twelve hundred miles away to this area of the world that we've never been to because that's what normal do like feet away. I guess what you're running away from something. Why not be closer to the beach. I guess i don't know. And so we moved to tampa sight unseen and the moving truck showed up. And we're walking around this this house that we rented for the first time and they're starting to bring boxes in and i have a complete meltdown. And.

"one person" Discussed on Change Lives Make Money
"Then they're able to do that at a higher level for more people and they start making more money and so because they changed their own life. They're able to change the lives of others and i'm actually going to. I'm going to end with one more thing if you're an online coach and you are trying to grow your business and you are trying to change the lives of other people. But you're unwilling to invest in getting your own life changed. You haven't fully bought into the system. And so what. I mean like if you're an online fitness coach k. I want to get people to pay me to help them. Transform their bodies and their minds like people are going to pay me to measure them right. But then you yourself or unwilling to pay in order to level yourself up then you haven't bought into the system yet even bought into the mentorship in the coaching system. So how can you expect people to pay you when you're not investing in yourself so you don't invest in yourself like so like expecting people to pay you so you're not willing to invest to change run life but then you expect other people to invest to change their life it literally makes no sense and so it's like you can't express what you don't possess and so if you're trying to grow your business but you're unwilling to invest in yourself to grow business. It's like that's why you're struggling is because you like you're trying to cheat. The system becomes successful without getting any help. But then you're going to attract clients that want to do that to become successful getting any help. And that's why you're attracting clients that don't wanna pay you because you can't express possess. Does that make sense guys in summary going through the motions will kill your progress. It's just showing up to get on. I've streams because you think you should or your writing posts because you think you should or you're getting on calls because you think you should or you're in the dmz because you think you should you're gonna burn yourself out..

You really can't do it. Yeah yeah that's awesome so that was one that was one do have got more. Oh well the other one is. I think you should try to start it on his lean budget as a good point. One thing that. I see a lot of people do they get excited about a new business and even with the home. Office's rate is so easy to redecorate your home. But what i found is these folks are very careful about their spending the first couple of years and they keep things you know. They're using a lot of free and low cost apps. They're they're they're bartering. Turning to crowdsource information listening to free podcasts. Don't feel like if you have no money for the business can't start because a lot of them really did start on a shoestring than people in manufacturing who had used capital twitter inventory right now that sort of and supplies And then the other thing i would say is keep reading.

"Have these other folks behind you know. Ching you along. You're tired of your customer departed or whatever it might be. That might throw you off a little bit That's one thing that they accommodate also do use contractors delegate. they use outsourcing. I find that there are a lot of one person business owners who don't want to spend much money growing business and usually you can't the first year or two but these folks get to a certain point where they say you know what i really am not good at bookkeeping or i'm not good at marketing. Whatever they're not good at they're willing to bite the bullet and spend the money because they realize it's better for them to focus on what they are. Good at and and let other experts handle things that i think. That's one of the major reasons. A lot of businesses. Don't grow right. Keep on relying on the skills of the you burn out. Yeah and no one can be good at every single thing. Yeah and you can't do it all because i think that stops. You can't grow if you try to accomplish everything you out. You'll burn out and he won't do your best work anywhere show true. The other thing is their users of automation. And that's often a gateway militating because it somehow it seems like more responsibility to take on even a single contractor but if like i use bench to do my bookkeeping and i. It's so much easier for me than when i've use accounting software. They attach the software that they used to my different accounts in a pulpit in using a and then they real bookkeeper who kind of sees it all. And i can talk to. If i have questioned and that that might be a good way for people to dip a toe in the water of not doing everything themselves either. Abs- i think you might have used calendar really for the subway. Her time trade. Is i use but calendar years a good one too right. It's like the streamlines those those processes that we do over and over and over again definitely when you think about it for someone like may who sets up a lot of interviews i. I've been using schedule once. That could save me easily for five hours a week and it does and you don't really realize it until you actually make that switch to having a calendar that does that for you and you go. Oh my gosh. that's just opened up a whole lot of time for me so that i think go do something. That's really delivering value. Oh it's so true. I suggest to people trying to get back.
