Why Are We Tearing Down America's Fundamental Institutions? Rep. Kat Cammack Explains
"I want to switch gears for just a minute, because you and I have you were married into it. I was born into it. And that is being a, for me, a son of a Georgia state trooper, you're the wife of a firefighter of first responder. Those kind of I know I've watched you on the floor, this has become a very, with all things going on with our defund the police with this idea of our first responders. And it goes to what we were just talking about the civility issue. Why is it that we seem especially many on the left right now seem to be tearing down at the very fundamental institutions of our society of Law & Order of safety, those kinds of things. How does that make you feel within your own family? I know from my perspective, it's very discouraging. Are we at a turning point here? Have we gotten better or was it, or do you think it's going to get worse? I think it's going to get worse before it gets better. I mean, I really do think that collectively across the nation, there are some very, very tough conversations happening around the kitchen table. And I know that because my own husband and I Matt, we've had those conversations. My husband's a firefighter, but he's also a S.W.A.T. medic. So he goes out on the most dangerous calls. And we're seeing increased violent crime across America. And it's really scary when you get the call out at 11 o'clock at night and putting on a ballistic vest and you're seeing some of the details of the call out. And it's all barricaded subject, multiple weapons or gang shooting, still in progress. Something like that. You don't know if they're going to walk back through that door in a few hours. There's no way of knowing because we've lost such a respect in this country for the very people who put it all on the line every single day. And we've really dehumanized law enforcement and first responders. And so my push has always been to one show the support for the collective first responder community and their families, but we need to start recognizing that there is a person behind the badge.
Pastor Rick Joyner Urges Americans to Prepare for an Inevitable Civil War
"Joy of speaking with my friends Rick Joyner and Chris Reed Morningstar ministries. Rick, you just said something huge. An important you said that the lord spoke to you. Now, I love the fact that there are people listening to this program or watching who don't even believe in any of this stuff. So we're going to challenge them here. But you said that the lord spoke to you showed you that what is coming is a second American Revolution, a second Civil War, before I read that you had said that. Months ago, I've effectively been saying the same thing. That's what it feels like. But tell us more about that because I don't get the sense that that means we're taking up arms or do you think that's possible? What do you think the lord said to you? And also I'm sure there are many people that think that even to mention this, we should be locked up because we're a clear and present danger to the republic, even by mentioning this metaphorically. So what do you think? Unpack anything you can. Well, I was first shown this in 1987. That America was headed towards a Civil War revolution. But I took it as if you don't change your direction. You're going to end up where you're headed. And we still had plenty of time to change our direction. And that's the way I was moving, praying that, you know, doing what I was doing. But in the dream I had 2018 when I was shown clearly that no, it is now inevitable. We crossed some kind of line there. And the Civil War revolution is inevitable. So that changed my thinking from trying to avoid it, help us in any way to avoid what has come in to preparing for it. It is coming. And of course it would still be my ultimate hope and any sane persons ultimate hope that it would not degenerate into violence. There are a lot of ways to fight wars besides using guns and bombs. There are economic wars there. All kinds of different ways to do it. But what I saw in that dream was no, it was physical fighting in our streets in our cities. It was worse than I've ever even expressed publicly.

Almost Half of US Millennials ‘Don’t Know, Believe or Care if God Exists’
"Arizona Christian university did a study with millennials. Now look, I'm gonna be very clear. I find it very hard to believe that 40% of millennials are gay. Okay, I just find that really hard to believe. Let's pretend it's half right, 20%, 10%, 10% would be extraordinary, by the way. I think that one Gen Z one showed one in 5. Is that right? That's what the NBC one said. So some of these numbers could be a little off, but some of these numbers could be rather instructive. 63% of millennials lean on personal emotions, past experience in the advice of others when making moral choices. No wonder whether so miserable. They're looking themselves for all the answers when all the answers are right there for you. There's been a lot of scholarship done before you were born. You're not the most important thing in the world. This is the amazing one. Millennials are half as likely as adults to say that life is sacred. Millennials do not have as much respect for human beings as adults do, from other generations. Millennials are significantly less likely to believe that God is the basis of truth to believe the Bible is a reliable source of moral guidance. To say that they have unique purpose from God, they do not accept the idea of original sin, which I've been saying in our show for quite some time. They do not believe that you should try to avoid sin. They do not accept the Bible as the inherent word of God. This is like 60 70% millennials, by the way. They do not pray during a typical week. They do not believe that Satan is real and influential, and they do not define success as consistent obedience to God. They're less likely than prior generations. Millennials are twice as likely to say that people they always respect are ones who hold the same religious political views as they do. So it's becoming this kind of self radicalization,
The One Unforgivable Sin in America? To Deviate From the Accepted Script
"Say, let's be honest. No one gets canceled for abandoning their children. Betraying their country, or committing any number of indecent immoral or criminal acts. No, today in America, there really is only one unforgivable sin and that is to deviate from the accepted script when speaking of protected protected identity groups. It is to say something whether intentionally or not that either offense protected identity groups or that the elites find offensive on their behalf, and before that paragraph, you wrote something that just like clicked and it's so true because we did a whole we did a whole segment with your colleague, doctor Khalil Habib on Nietzsche, and I kept trying to find where it is, but you could just share with the audience, Nietzsche said that every society has something you don't make fun of. A piety that you don't, can you explain that please? Yeah, at the heart of every society is something at which it is your categorically forbidden to laugh. And so if you think about it, you know, humor, comedians at their best are subversive. Because look, I see humor comes in one of two varieties. Either it's kind of slapstick absurd you fall on a banana. Or you make fun of things you're not supposed to make fun of. So look at the recent brouhaha with Dave Chappelle. You know, he is touching one of the pies that the claims of the transgender are sacred and holy. You know, even in his first show, you may be too young. I don't know if you remember that Dave Chappelle show when it was on. I do. He did, there was one skit. I won't say what it was, but it was incredibly politically incorrect. But it was hilarious. He was quite subversive. I mean, he made fun of black people, not in a malicious way he's black. But we're not allowed to laugh today. You know, you know, how many women does it take to change a lot to screw in a lightbulb? That's not funny. That's kind of the view, and then you could say the same thing for days for black people, you name it. So the central piety in America is pertains to the protected aged identity groups. We're not allowed to laugh, we're not allowed to contradict them, the claims made on their
Merrick Garland Is the Current Hired Gun of the Craven Ruling Class
"Today, Merrick Garland is doing a hearing in front of the House judiciary committee. Merrick Garland is being asked certain questions that he doesn't even know the specifics of what he does his attorney general is exactly what bob Mueller did when he was the appointment, where they have these elderly kind of elderly old men that have had long resumes and careers, Merrick Garland being a federal judge, bob Mueller, think bubble around the FBI, and he's something like that. And then they use them as puppets and they manipulate them to wage domestic war on us. Merrick Garland, you have to understand what you're dealing with here. Is the current hired gun of the craven ruling class. Merrick Garland is the placeholder of all of the entrenched interests. Merrick Garland oversees the department that spied on Donald Trump illegally oversees the department that had Peter struck and Lisa page. James Comey, Merrick Garland is the placeholder unelected by the way no one showed up in huge numbers to go elect Merrick Garland to be able to write letters to say to the national school board to acknowledge the letter from the national school board association, say, you know what? We need to go use the FBI the Department of Justice to go after moms and dads that are showing up in big numbers to school board meetings. Now, Republicans are doing their job here by overseeing Merrick Garland. They're conducting oversight. And a lot of this is just words. But Merrick Garland is not used to being challenged like this. I listen to some of the hearing this morning and I could tell you this is a man who just like bob Mueller is only a placeholder and is being used and manipulated by other treacherous and other malevolent interests. To try to weaponize the federal government in the United States.

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for monday. September twenty seventh two thousand and twenty one first up. I want to congratulate tech clark and a dive locker. Podcast on celebrating the second anniversary for those who don't know about this. Podcast tech. Started this to help die professionals with various topics and techniques. But it's not just for dive professionals. I remember listening to the first episode. Way back in two thousand nineteen just before dima that year i've come to look forward to each weekly episode tech plans to keep the show going and has teed up a lot of great new content for the year year ahead. So i'd encourage you to check out the dive locker podcast. There's a lot of great information and perspective on things that hopefully will give you something to think about. Scuba shack is a proud patron of the dive locker. By the way tech also hosts a podcast titled the league of extraordinary divers. Where you can listen to some of the giants of our industry. Great job tech. Keep it coming now. I don't know what it is. But i seem to be a sucker for a message in a bottle story. So here's another one this time. The story involves a bottle that was washed up on the shores of the big island of hawaii. The bottle started his journey thirty seven years ago from japan and it was put in the water by school children. As part of an experiment in monitoring ocean currents the number of bottles were cast into the ocean in nineteen eighty-four from choshi highschool hawaii's about six thousand kilometers or four thousand three hundred miles from the launch point now. The bottle was found by abbie graham while her family was visiting a beach near hilo. It is estimated that about seven hundred and fifty of these bottles were tossed into the ocean between nineteen eighty four and nineteen eighty five. The last time one was found was in two thousand and two on kake. Jima island overall. The bottles have been found in seventeen. Different locations including okinawa the philippines china and even the west coast of the united states. I just get fascinated by these stories and often wonder just how many messages in bottles are out there in the ocean now. Last week we got an email from the clearly clearly came in resorts and it wasn't good. News clearly came in resorts include cobalt coast on grand cayman. Little came beach resort and cayman. Brac beach resort. The news informed us that the cayman borders will remain closed until two thousand twenty two. Now that's tough at a recent press conference to premier indicated that phase. Three of the original plan will start sometime. In february given the rise in cove in nineteen cases the resorts are now planning on opening on february. Fifth two thousand twenty two. Now this has been a really tough situation. If you remember way back in april i reported that the plan was to open in late april or early may two thousand and twenty one. It's been a long and difficult road for a lot of places. Surely the caymans are feeling abroad. We hope it gets resolved before october. Twenty twenty two trip yet. That on certain there's been a great deal of communication coming from tom. Ingram the president and ceo of dima the dive equipment marketing association regarding the two thousand twenty one show in las vegas. Tom unequivocal be states. That the show has absolutely no plans. Of cancelling now they did indicate that accordance with the local health mandates. Everyone will be required to wear a mask on the exhibit floor. There are several large past exhibitors. Who are forgoing the show this year causing some to question whether it should even take place. I know we've been getting a lot of surveys from our vendors as to whether we plan to go or not right now matt and i will be there. Tom indicated that it would be extremely difficult to cancel at this late date. Given the contracts that are in place and that if it were cancelled it would seriously impact demon's ability to put on these shows in the future. So we're looking forward to a successful show this year out in las vegas and finally today. I wanna talk about a piece of underwater camera gear that you might just want to consider. There was an article from sport diver magazine by john widow titled great camera accessories for underwater photography. It was a scuba lab review of the products that the staff took diving at alexander springs in central florida. First on the list was a sea life. Sport diver smartphone housing. Now that's pretty cool.

The Days After 9/11: Will Things Ever Be Funny Again?
"On amazon music or with one plus in the days after nine eleven it really did feel like nothing would ever be funny again. Welcome to the late show. This is our first show on the air. Sense of new york and washington were attacked. Even the men on late night had abandoned their post. Then shuffled back. One by one cowed by their lack of words to describe what had happened. Letterman came. I watching all of this. I wasn't sure of that. I should be doing a television show because for for twenty years we've been in in the city making fun of everything making fun of the city making fun of my hair making fun of paul well. Conan came the next night. I will be very honest with you. I have no idea how to do what we've been doing. I know i have no idea how we're going to get back to doing this again.

We'll be right back. I just assumed well. We can't do humor todd. Hanson was the head writer at the satirical newspaper the onion at the time. Everyone on the staff assumed that and so we cancelled it and we just went dark and of course who cares. It's just comedy right. But here's the problem the onion isn't just a scrappy. College comedy thing anymore. They have financial backers they have payroll. They have add biased fulfil hell. They still have to pay. They might be giants. They can't just stop printing whenever they want. They have to put there next issue. A whole newspaper full of

There are several things that americans should know about the booster announcement. We recently made number one. Is that the vaccines are continuing to work. Remarkably well for preventing people from ending up in the hospital and they're saving lives. So that's the reason we are not recommending boosters today but we are seeing is a decline in the protection against mild to moderate disease.

The USS Indianapolis: The Deadliest Shark Attack in US History
"At fifteen minutes after. Midnight july thirtieth. The ship was struck by two torpedoes from a japanese submarine. the torpedo. strike was totally unexpected and the indianapolis went down in only twelve minutes. An estimated three hundred souls went down with the ship. This left however almost nine hundred sailors floating in the water. There were few lifeboats and not everyone had a life preserver. They were floating in the middle of the ocean and no one knew where they were. Little do they know that their nightmare was just beginning stranded floating in the open ocean. There were several problems at the survivors. Were facing the first risk was obviously drowning. The longer you're in the water the greater the risk of exhaustion. The greater the risk of your life vests becoming waterlogged and the greater the risk of drowning. The second was dehydration. You can't drink seawater so everyone would. Effectively be slowly dehydrating especially considering that they were out in the open sun. Finally the most terrifying prospect was sharks. The location where the ship sunk was in some of the most shark-infested water in the world and the sharks. That were there. Were some of the world's most aggressive the oceanic white tip shark. The ship sank in pitch darkness while the sailors in the water could hear each other. They could barely see each other. The sharks were attracted by the sounds of the explosion and the movement of the men and of course blood in the water the first night the sharks mostly attacked the dead bodies in the water. When the sun came up most of the men began to join up and link arms with each other by joining a group in improve their buoyancy. They were able to give each other moral support and they could keep the sharks at bay and a group. The men could all clearly see the sharks. They were swimming under and around them survivor. Edgar herald recorded the scene in the open water as quote at any given time. You could look out and see big fin swimming around and around and around all of a sudden. You heard a blood-curdling scream and you look to see. The shark had taken him under and quote. The men in the water waited for relief to arrive but no one showed up. As the hours passed it went. In today's men became delirious from the sun exhaustion and dehydration. Some began swimming to illusionary islands. Off in the distance some would break away from their groups and started thrashing making them easy targets for the sharks. When someone in the group died they would often push the body away trying to placate the sharks for a while by offering up one of the corpses

Something's Wrong With Apple Podcasts
"Is apple. Podcasts still having problems well some. Publishers have reported that some new episodes taking many hours to appear in apple podcasts. Sometimes as long as seventy two hours we wondered how widespread the problem was of apple. Podcasts simply not noticing new episodes so yesterday we asked you to let us know if you to have seen this issue. We don't many emails in response. So here's some of what we learned one podcast host reports around five customer complaints day. Where it's been more than twenty four hours. Their feet is valid. And then you episode is everywhere but apple podcasts and it does take some convincing customers that it isn't the podcast host fault and other publishers says episodes of taken a full forty eight hours to appear in apple podcasts. For another their record is seventy two hours now. Few have told us that. If you log into apple podcasts connect and change the frequency of your podcast in the interface that appears to get apple to rescan your feed although they do say that sometimes new episodes appear and disappear a few times before being there permanently a few hours later. And we've seen that happening to in our testing podcast which is called pulled clock now apple is seemingly aware their support team has responded to one publisher saying this was an issue on our end with our service. There's nothing your end you can do to prevent it from happening again. It shouldn't happen again but if you do notice. An episode not live on apple podcasts. After twenty four hours please reply back. Longer and more pained feedback includes one person contacting us saying i have a daily podcast and at least once a week. My episode won't release on apple podcasts. It appears everywhere else. I've written to support about it and they refresh my feed but also say allow up to twenty four hours episodes to appear. This is a daily show. A why does this only happen on apple podcasts. They can't answer this but the following day both the episode that didn't appear and the new one show up apple had better start taking podcasting seriously. They can lose their once seemingly insurmountable lead.

Nichelle Tramble Spellman on the Writers Responsibility and Representation in Hollywood
"Nichelle. Very nice to meet you. Thanks for making the time. Thank you so much. Maybe you could help us understand. What a show runner is to the people. Have a bit of an idea as to what it is that you do well. It's the person who's in charge of both the creative and the production. It's a big title for one person. You sit in writers rooms for years with different show runners and you sit there and you think yeah. I wouldn't do that that way. And then you get into that seat and you understand the reasons why some choices were made because it can be very overwhelming job. Usually as a writer. You're focused on the rioting focused on pending deadlines writing something that people respond to but now you're bombarded with questions about the construction of the sets casting the budget props you know whether this paint color looks good on the ceiling of this one room that they might not show on camera and i came home after the first week and i said to my husband. I didn't know that. So many questions existed in one day. So it's kind of like you're the general you're in charge of all the troops. Would it be fair to say the sort of the for that project. yes yes. So you're the series. Could truth be told if those you listening having watched it you should do. And it's about a journalist turned. Podcast played by incredible octavia spencer who revisits a murder case. And there's a medication that she covered as a young journalist. I just wanna ask octavia spencer. She everything that you'd hoped she'd be. She's amazing she's she's the best. She's the best actress and she's a wonderful human being. So i got so lucky with my first. Show that number one on the call. She is just a diamond and season to kate. Hudson joins us and she was perfection. So i just you know almost want to end the show. Because i don't want to risk it now. The character played by otavio. Spencer as podcast. Obviously that's relevant for us. As of this project you went out and raise the money. You pitched it to apple an apple board. So why podcasting. What's the unique power of this medium. A couple of things. This is based on a book called. Are you sleeping. And i went to a meeting with a producer who had worked with in the past as i was getting ready to leave. She said oh yeah. We got the spoken that hasn't been published yet. But i think there's something there do you wanna take a look at it and maybe read it over the holiday. This was maybe three christmases
"one show" Discussed on Pretty Basic with Alisha Marie and Remi Cruz
"Com slash fireworks so needless to say we've had a lot of humbling experiences as someone who really struggles. I've gotten way better as you guys know.

Oh my god i choose million like it was like i don't know i just that was in my head of like. Oh that's how it is. Until i finally had the moment of realizing bitch like stop. Just stop not. You're not hot shit. Oh my god. That's i think. I think i've always thought of it is like two million people have seen my face. That's how i always thought of it. Oh i love that. Like they might not be able to like point me on the crowd but like at some point or another. They probably saw my face. Which is yeah. Even that's like weird to think about. No no totally that makes with not getting into parties. I was like okay clearly I don't not getting into this party of two million people love me literally. I don't get it. i'm totally kidding. Another thing. I don't know if this has happened to you. There's been multiple times where the same people introduce themselves to me. Oh baby i'm like we've met six times. Am i that forgettable or anything for me. It's not my manager. Officing mahindra renault me but like managers in the like ecosystem of digital creators. Which i know they know they have to like. Also we're usually friends with their clients and moult like overa- over high. I'm blank high blank. I'm no we. We know each other like we know that so. I've had it mostly from creators not as much managers interesting but one specific creator. I'm thinking of i remember. He introduced himself to me like six times. And then i remember i. I was so pissed. I was like wow so rude. Whatever and then and then i realized you know what maybe he struggles with social anxiety and doesn't know if i remembered him or something but it was to the point where i was like. This is weird. Like i know everything about you linked to me really. I don't know if it's an ego thing. I don't know if it's a social anxiety thing regardless knocking to judge it but definitely humbling moment of you know what maybe i don't know maybe that isn't humbly moment. Maybe that's just more of a. What the fuck. I have no idea i had moment last night. This kind of has to do with youtube. But also just like in my life. And i thought it was just sweet and wanted to share with the class so i went back to my parents house last night and i haven't been back to my parents house in so-so long really wants a few months ago in the years so i went back and i want to go to the bathroom and i was like oh i should just go use bathroom. I guess i went upstairs to my room and bathroom right there. And as i was in the bathroom between us girls my tummy was really hurting so i was there for a while and i was just looking around in the bathroom. Looks like completely different than wanna use. My bedroom looks so different than what it used to. Obviously that bathroom and bedroom is where i started my youtube channel like pretty much a decade ago making video on the window sill to say when you posted it on your story i recognize. I recognized it as your room really have left love pillow. It's like the room looks so different. Obviously like it's the same thing when you leave your parents make it like a gym or something like it looks different but it just brought back so many memories for me and i was in the bathroom. I had a lot of time to think. And i was looking around and it looks completely different. Like i used to have like fish wallpaper. It was crazy looking like fish wallpaper and they completely rip down. It's all like gray. And really pretty now and i was just looking around thinking about like when i did my in my bathroom medicine cabinet videos and like my morning routines right film like gopro like hitting the water and being like oh this is going to be such good shot for my morning routine and i was just like reminiscing like how i thought about like what i used to be sad and i would cry when i would come home from high school because people are not being nice about my channel or like boys would like wouldn't like me and be so sad and like crying in the bathroom and then all of a sudden there is a knock on the door and cow in the hallway and he was like. Hey rome just checking on you okay and i was like oh i'm okay. Thank you and he was like girls and he was talking to the puppies outside. And i was just like a full circle moment in like i don't know i looked at myself in the mirror and i like got teary eyed and i was like i never thought it was something so small but like being in that moment i was like wow i never imagined in high school or like what i was making those videos and i was upset that i'd be so happy now and it was just like an aha moment for me. I have to say. I fully agree. There's something about i've been. I feel like i've been going to my parents house too. And when you go into your old room where you made videos where you the career that you have today and you had no idea is also like a surreal awesome humbling experience because you quickly are so quickly brought back to that younger version of yourself. You're an older version of yours like it's so weird you're the same person but it fills crazy. I can't i totally totally feel that too. Oh i love the nostalgia. I think i need to go home or just like feel it. I just i love the feeling that yes. I'm gonna love this subject and yang well on that happy note. I think we can wrap it up some green episode. What a nice walk down memory lane. And i hope you guys enjoyed it if you want to hear more humbling experiences. We've got plenty. And i can't wait 'til we're in the studio very soon and can do video and also include photos and things with what we're talking about because it's gonna be hilarious.

"On it but it was. It was so big that if I stepped on it it would just like squishing SPLAT Everywhere and would maybe I would slip in it and it would be really bad. Yeah so yeah so I went inside and I thought I'm going to trap wrap this thing And I went inside and got one of those ice cream containers that are clear plastic. Forget the name of the kind of ice cream. It is But it has a screw on top which I thought was very important and I went into grabbed it and my wife is like hey what are you doing. I was like nothing. I don't WanNa tell you because if you was in her garage we would move so I I took this thing and I put it it over top of the spider and it jumped it like hit the top like jumped at me as though if you yes I I almost I was so sick I hate spiders. IBM just really liked ice cream. Maybe maybe it was mad that there was nothing. Yeah exactly so I you know I did the thing where you get the piece of paper and slide in under turn it over and the LID on it and I'm looking at this thing and it's taking up the entire bottom of this container and it just looks nasty and mean and I would like what what the heck is this spider did not think that they existed so I happen to live by the Erie Zoo and you know so I thought doc will maybe it escaped course. That's logical so as normal human being would do. I took it there. I went down there and maybe they can identify this thing with me and put it back in its cage. 'cause it's ridiculously big and I went down there and ah you know I I pulled out so a big stir right because at this time. There's nothing going on in the zoo. It's middle of the day. Nobody's there sleeping right. Everybody's sleeping even like some of the workers and the the kids at the check in stationed there like. Oh my gosh. That's crazy. And so they get they get one of the people Like zookeeper whatever and bring them out and they say it's a wolf spider their common in this a serious like they're more of these in the coming after you and I was like well. Maybe you could take it so like they took it for for me and I was. I was thinking about the this idea in. The point of the story became the fact that sometimes there are are are things in our life that we don't expect that creep into our lives and And if you find it if you become aware you're of it it's important to remove it and a and oftentimes it's things like Hurts it's or resentments. UNFORGIVENESS is what I focused on in the story Because if you don't it will multiply and it will grow and I was thinking about the spider and there's no way I would ever want that thing to multiply in my house and that is that's the beginning of a horror movie And and if we let them linger they will multiply and so things like resentments and in unforgiveness in your life if you do not Do something about it it will grow it will multiply and you will have your own version of a horror movie in your life. Take it deal with it Forgive in keep the small small things small and life works better and that goes for work. It goes for marriages. It goes for family relationships Every aspect of your life to take those as soon as you're aware of them in remove get rid of him and get him out of your life. I love it. Thanks Andy for sharing the story. That's yeah awesome and I Never WanNa see a wolf spider. Oh my gosh. I don't WanNa see another one now. They'll take you. I WanNa see you take any pictures I did you absolutely I will send one to you. Yes I have one super creepy that so andy. How did you come to this conclusion about The leadership that you've been through and all the teaching and preaching that you've done in helping people where where do you think that stems from. Where do you think you get that? Well you know I think it comes from unlike my family I you know. I was contemplating this because I found out when I when I told my mom that I was going to be the chaplain at the eerie admission irritating mission. She'd started To tear up and the her story his her story is that way back when she was six years old her aunt was bringing her to that city mission. Her aunt did like Piano songs and stuff at lunchtime when they served the free lunch to people that were struggling in poverty and the message was given and my mom said. She responded wanted to the preacher's message like every time she was there at age six and then as an adult when we were kids she volunteered at the very city mission. And my mom has always been Somebody that wanted to help to give back to serve And I want to share. You know her love with other people and it's kind of built in Tainan model to me and you know when I decided I wanted to Go from teaching and then in the Ministry and then into coaching that saying saying desire to help people help them find their purpose. Help people to become everything that they were created to be His has been with me for a long time and attributed that to Both of my parents of my mom's specifically in the area of you know serving hoping those that are struggling in poverty. And it's interesting because I think you hear a lot of these stories working at this eerie CD mission and being a pastor Doing Leadership Training one on one with people. You hear all of their stories right if you have time to tell one more quick story one of my convert stories that you tell is When you guys lived in Edinburgh and it was winter and you're driving? Oh yes you know what I'm talking about yes I do. Yeah and I love that because it ties into the purpose In in this story was early on in in our ministry mystery I was we had just bought our house. It was seventeen degrees out which is pretty cold in Edinburgh Pennsylvania which is like in rating in that Snow Belt There's about a fluid snow on the ground. It was late at night. I took a French home. You're helping US remodel repaint our house. And everything and It was about one in the morning and I was taking a back way. Home and Came across this bridge and thought I saw something but you know it was late eight and I was fairly delirious so I just kept driving Got To the stop sign and really felt like If ever I could describe God telling me to do something it was turn around and go back and I decided to pay attention to that and turned around when I got back to the bridge. There was a guy laying in the smell. He was their I don't know how long you've been there. I at the time was driving the smart Gar of the nineties. The Geo Metro and Becomes important in the story because when I get out and talk to the guy he turns out to be like six four six five star time getting in my car right but when I said hey are you okay. He said this. Leave me alone own and you know I wasn't going to leave this gentleman out there and I walked over and stuck out my hand and He was pretty upset. That was me because he wanted to be left alone And he realized I wasn't going to leave so he got in my car and we started driving. Told me where you live tonight. I said hey you know. I don't know what you think about this but I really feel God told me to turn around and come back and when I did. That's when I found you. And he bursts into tears this college student Which Kinda took me off guard and I was like now what is going on and he he said well I started drinking tonight to get drunk enough to kill myself and I said he said I came out here to lay down down in front of a car to do it in? Your car was going to be that car in one of the first things that went through my mind was well Jeff. Metro would never kill you. But I didn't say that appropriate at the time and and I said well can you tell me what's going on in your life that so we got to his house. He told me that he wanted to. He was animation major agere and he wanted to do work for veggietales for big idea productions and I was like man that's awesome. That's like a pretty high goal and he told tell me about his family history. And where is that broken relationship that experienced and why he was in the tank emotionally and and I was just you know realize is it's something like a divine meeting it happened and I got to be part of it and and we became friends and I was like. Hey you WANNA come under Church with me tomorrow do you have time. He said well I do now and He we started hanging out he got involved with a group and that really helped him Reconnect with who he was and he kept in his finished his degree in animation and later that year I get a call from one of the animation. Professors was a friend of mine and he said this kid. is winning and international ward. He's winning the Chuck Jones Award Doc and I was like oh my gosh who is Chuck Jones and he was like it. Chuck Joe's the Creator Creator. Bugs bunny kind of set. It like you idiot. Anybody knows it. Yeah sorry I know right so you know heck I and I was like that and I love bugs. Bunny is always done man He said he we're GonNa give him this award and they're have awards banquet. I want you to come and so I went and You know I see this kid there. And he's like the news is here that's weird. You know like he doesn't know what's going on. He they presented with this award and they get Chuck Jones on the phone and this Chuck Jones talks to this kid and you know oh he. This kid obviously knows who chuck Jones's and he's like freaking out And it was so awesome and then they started reading these job offers from different companies in animation and one was Pixar and one was dreamworks in one was Disney and one of the job offers was.

"So I kind of take this story and appoint thing into coaching and like tell me your story. And let's work together to find your point in a sense your purpose S.. How are we getting to see things connecting and really getting to the root of okay? What is it about certain things that you did? Connect with or didn't connect act with. And why this is the square. One show. Well Hey we have Andy Kerr with us again today. Andy how are you. I'm doing fantastic thank you and dave. Hey Dave Hello Andy Andrew Andrew. So Andy we had you on the show quite a few episodes at this point. I guess actually so really you. You actually recorded in our studio when we lived in Edinburgh. Yeah Yeah Yes yes that was A. That was a few months ago times a lot. Yeah yeah so I think at that point. Ain't we had talked about your coaching business. And how you got into coaching. I'm you're a John. Maxwell team coach also the chaplain at the Erie City Mission Chen. Yes that's still going here. Also yeah show I also have a real estate Property rental property business this with a friend since we've chatted so I don't know I think we had. We were doing it. We just didn't talk about it because it was pretty new but we have Fifteen units dire building very tiny empire. It all kind of stems around the same Idea in purpose for which I feel like. I'm here In my city to to to accomplish and it has to do with helping people come out of poverty And making an impact on our city in its economy and so this is about all the rental property businesses about providing safe affordable housing for people that want to do something great with their lives. Don't you also provide some some job opportunities to that as well right we have. Yes we do We're trying to work with we have individuals That come out of our program ear see mission. Our New Life Program is an addiction recovery program and A lot of the services that We use as far as construction electric HVAC Our guys that have done those things in the past And then stopped doing them because of their addiction and have started back into those businesses in recovery and are doing fantastic and we're using them as part of our workforce to do what we're doing. That's awesome so andy what I've always appreciated appreciated about you as you've always dressed figure things out as you go right you can just dive in and you connect with people and I know at one point you really struggled with a what is what is my life. What am I doing right? Yeah so can you take us kind of back a little bit and talk about. How did you get to where where you are now when you are full of purpose and you're not only doing one thing that achieves your purpose you're doing multiple things so I'm doing multiple things but they don't necessarily all point to one purpose? You know I'm still figuring out. So how can you help someone listening. How would you walk them through? How do I find my purpose? And then how do I align my goals to meet that purpose You know it is a it is a process a- and it's been a long process for me it. I think it's a lifelong process. If you want to become more purposeful and you have a lot of varying interests you know. I always talk about the fact that I struggle with attention deficit but I think we live in sort of a you know an. Add Culture in a sense that there's so many things to choose from and so many good options out there that are interesting and if you're a normal human being you're probably interested in more than one specific thing and you know there's do they connect you know just because we're interested in it. Should it be something we do you so when I started at at mission as chaplain I came there specifically because I I was getting more clear on my purpose. That happened by me. Hiring a life coach two thousand eleven thousand twelfth guiding Dave craft phenomenal Middle Dude And like he is about to turn eighty years old and the guy is just amazing. He's sharp as attack and it is brilliant and it's kind of tough on me so probably yes. Oh no no. Gosh I am thinking about like Dave he was. He's writing a book Another book and it's it's a leader on his last lap. I was like that's dad is like I'm eighty. Let's face it here. I said well. Oh you can't go yet. I still need you. So it was a process of getting clear on wanting to make an impact in the issues of poverty. The city of Pennsylvania Where we actually then moved to to erase from neighboring town and a- As I came to the mission I realized a little bit more what it took to make an impact so I went part time at the mission To start my the leadership development business because if you want to impact a city you have to impact leaders And so I kind of kept one foot in working working with people in poverty and stepped out to help people That are in leadership they can have an impact and then we started the rental property business. Missile one more piece of the focus so my thinking process you have to figure it out but you have to be intentional about getting rid of things that don't move towards the purpose and I mean I've had a lot of advice and encouragement from other people doing too many things. I don't know if you you guys ever heard that we may have told you that. Yes yes and it was true. I mean I've put on. I put all the things I was doing little cards and put them up on a board and I looked at it and I said that's ridiculous doing this Not Well I'm a machine. Yes not functioning well machine right right a AH clumsy machine that doesn't work at complicating anything right which is a really poor machine? If you've ever had broken machine. Yes yes so. I one in one specific example. I started a community garden For the city mission Great idea three o'clock in the morning saw Ted talk on Community Gardens and said I'm going to do that and then I did it ahead. A group of people and we got the plot of ground for a dollar from the city was awesome. We we made raised beds. We got all the stuff we've got a shed donated and all the tools and we did it and then everybody disappeared and then I was doing it And I light socket gardening so and I don't like it. I like the idea of people having food that they need. And so the mission ended up giving the garden Away to an organization called the sisters of Saint Joseph in Eerie who are amazing community garden again And no longer that I have to do that. And now the garden is amazing the whole neighborhoods involved It looks amazing and produce food for everybody that has pitched in and it looks fantastic and that and it got better because I decided that I'm not good at it that and I need to give it away. I'm good at starting things and it also wouldn't have started if you hadn't taken the Initiative to though right so it's necessary a failure. You still initiated it but you delegate it by default absolutely ed more than one now to this idea grew and multiplied. Didn't well they had more to begin with And they've had more since And they yeah they definitely took it to a next level net in that whole experience. I I've got this. You know this competing Understanding of how you find your purpose and one of them is trying stuff to see if you you like it if it makes sense and you find value in it and and you're good at it so you have to try stuff but then you have to quit stuff in order to figure you're out quit the bad stuff and keep the good stuff and so That's been my whole process in my life. That's how I learned. That's out like I try a bunch. I just stuff but you have to stop doing some things in order to keep doing the right things and that I've had to be very intentional about unloading stuff so that I could get better at the things that I was going to keep and that's an example and I'm good at starting things so I don't mind getting a team together getting things and making it happen and then giving it away but the sustainability part that's really challenging. Yeah right so there's a there's A. There's a great book. By by Seth Godin the dip and the dip is exactly that how do you stick with things when they get when you started and it starts to get a little worse People usually give up before the return comes but some people get stuck in what they called a cul de sac. Which is where? You're just keep doing the same thing over and over and again and it's not getting any better and you're just stuck in that pattern and it feels very similar to show a dip but the outcomes are very different and you have to decide what to quit and what to sustain. That's awesome great great little book and one of those things that you started and or have done in the past as he started a video series called story and a point and then we we just recently turned that into a book. So tell us about that. Yeah so in you guys know because we have some history but I i. I don't feel like I'm very creative. In how I name things and I just call them what. They are I was trying to think of like like I wanted to start putting out the stories that I used that I have used in talks and leadership talks and when I was doing sermons. And they're they're just stories from my life that I used to make a point and I I thought well what strike call these videos and so I just called it a story and a point because that's that's what it was and I had enough of them. That my wife was telling me you should make these into a book And she came up with the subtitle of the book finding meaning in everyday life and and which is a yeah. It's perfectly describes what we were trying to do with the book and it's a collection of twelve stories with.

"But I don't WanNa say I'm a one man band because I do bring you know day players as needed but for all the administrative industry at work. I'm a one man and and brought the lead Gen one man band The website that took me months to build. So you're right nehring the creative with the interpersonal with the administrative is like I can see how people would not be able to do it and be able order survive in their own two feet because it just gets overwhelming point especially with you know rejection is like it's just too much of sometimes so I've been extremely thankful I and I it's not all roses. I've had tough years last year super successful year. This year is actually been a really difficult all year. And that's because of elements out of control like we should changes within companies that I was working for working with the scaled. Back stuff like that. So it's not all roses is that you have to have that perseverance and that positive outlook to say this is what I love knows I sell is a huge first thing is like I've worked for companies and I know that I can't go back and work in a in a desk job and do video like I'm just it's not being utilized. I mean I guess if I were to go work for a big digital agency. That's like traveling around the world every week and I'm shooting and I'm out in the field like probably love. Yeah but at the same time. I'm probably not going to have a lot of creative output right to be able to do some of the things that I'm doing right now. So speaking speaking of traveling you you have done some travelling. When you're in the video work have you not like overseas or different countries and stuff house I still I I love it like that's where my I don't feel like I could do it all the time? I would say that that is where my heart is. I do travel but so I worked for traveled International Travel Company for about a year. They did like guided travel. And that was the company that Kinda like broke the camel's back for me. It was in a way it was a dream dream job because what you do is it was guided travel and I would go and experience the door with individuals and documented and it was really cool it was just the the bureaucracy of it like I would honestly say that what I wasn't traveling. I was in the office. which was the majority of time? We'd probably only go on a couple couple of trips in that year's time so I would say that like when I was in the office I was probably working and Daulat wants two days a week. The rest of the time. I'd just be Kinda shuffling papers around and put on King. Yeah Yeah No. That's how yeah it's not. It's not how I want to be. You know what I mean like. I feel like it's just. Ah It's just not valuing myself at that. Point is thinks that corporate corporate is funny clone a human construct right. It's like it was created mainly in the you know the sixties you know and really strong in the eighties is corporate structure and just just nine to five job in. It just doesn't efficient in the modern culture and it's just barack rec- of it like things hung up because the one thing connects to the other like I would honestly be waiting to create a video that I could probably create in two days and be waiting on a graphic designer to provide the elements and he's backed up to kingdom come for the next two weeks and I can't move forward on my project because I'm hung up by him and I'm like I could honestly I've got graphic chops. I could probably do what needs to be done and get this job job complete. But I can't because I'd be stepping on his toes and then they send what bad and you know what I mean like. There's just a lot of elements to corporate. That just doesn't make sense and that's why I just love what I'm doing now is because I'm interfacing acing on an outside perspective but a fresh pair of eyes and I can come in. I can complete the job and I can walk away until next project comes up and focus attention elsewhere Blair onto other part but travel so much data. It's like I want to travel to Spain. Portugal England Ireland France France. And then also I did a job in Mexico City Granada company to that sounds awesome. We had one of our other guests. He has a company in Spain in Barcelona Spain and he was talking about the importance of traveling and getting out in the world and seeing other cultures. Do you feel like you have benefited from that from being able to travel and then bring those experiences back into your work. Yeah the world is so much bigger than the four corners of where we live right. I feel like just my college experience alone own of going in and living in Chicago for four years was an eye opening experience. There's so many people that are different in the Midwest as opposed to southeastern Massachusetts S. -Chusetts right so when I go abroad when I when I go abroad and I go overseas. It's just like this wealth of knowledge and culture and how things are being done in everyday life overseas is just through I opening and it kind of keeps you focus about how how we live our own lives and then incorporating that what you learn bringing back over here. I find when I went to Portugal. It was really neat. People just like a a much more laid back approach as opposed to like you know. Go into Boston Austin. People contact with their. Yeah run got into to go. Do whatever you sold down you know people need to just chill out and enjoy each other and I think that we lose a little bit of that and when you go abroad and and you see how other people interact with one another it just reinforces that notion that we are all experience. That's at the end of the day. The products the services that we provide none of that matters. It really doesn't what we're here on. This planet to do is to two has experiences with one. Another if you walk through life with blinders on. You're not going to house filling life so when you go into another culture and you. You're traveling abroad. Like take notice of what's going on around you and how other people are interacting with you because you might find it completely different than how you do in your own four corners of where you live. Yeah for sure. That's huge. And that's what he was saying. You guys had office in Spain. Just actually his experiences in Spain and their culture and how connected they are. It's more about relationships ABS- than getting the job done all the time. And he he came back here and totally changed the model of this company to base it more on those connections uh-huh experiences with with others. So Good Kevin to talk to you about. You're just reinforcing that story. It's kind of something. I think that we all feel. It's like reading the room right. You go in and you go this corporate thing the way we do things here just doesn't feel right. Something's Amiss Right. But that's how we've been doing it for the last however many years now and so it's were stuck in a mold that I think it's GonNa take more people like you and people thinking outside the box to create a new reality a different reality. That's not You're doing focused on the reality that we have is around that we make like I saw something that like what it was like an article all about we all perceive reality differently and this is getting really Kinda like philosophical but I think that you put out a positive energy. Hopefully you'd receive one in return so this whole thing thing of like walking in and and pitching on a service and just like trying to get paid is not a reality you need you to have that interpersonal relationship with the people that you're talking to and treat them like humans and not just source of income and I think that you'll let me let me back up for a second. I'm going to give you an example. We we just recently purchased our own house. Okay Guy said and through the process I have like amazing real estate agent. She was great. Choose a friend of mine. She walked in the door. I knew her for awhile immediately said done. But she's brand new agents agent. She was great and she works for obviously a real estate agent. It's not for nothing like a good agency but I'm going into ordering how to sell real estate so I'm actually going for my real estate lie so I went to a class and gentlemen who taught the class is actually the owner of the brokerage. And I've met. Maybe I met him like three times before. I even sat down in his class and each time. I've met him. He never remembers me and and I who am I say. Oh I'm you know I'm Kevin We's we actually bought our house through you and honestly it's a blank stare on his face blank stare into space not like. Oh Uh really wake. Where'd you get it or like cool? Thank you so much for your business. None of that just a blank face. What do you want from me? And I and I'm thinking to myself bill. Is this how you conduct business. You're so out of touch. I just handed you maybe twenty thirty thousand dollars in commission. And you're going. I'm to not even acknowledge that and that's the problem with our culture is that we automatically think that we provide a service therefore we put our hands out and we walk away and that's not how business should be conducted. You need to humble yourself and you need to say thank you. Thank you for choosing me. Because there's so many options is out there that people and if you go you walk through life with that attitude of or chip on the shoulder of like you owe me or the world owes me and therefore I'm not GonNa be appreciative of. The fact is a really sad day for our culture. I really do think that. And people aren't going to choose to do business business with you. And and if they do they only do it. Because it's by default you know so that's my my whole spiel that I don't know entire going but I think that you just need to again. It's.

"At the end of the day the products the services that we provide none of that matters. It really doesn't what we're here on this planet to do is to have experiences with one another.

"It's it it's very very Teamwork base so we like like pretty tragic if you will so we just kind of. There's a there's a disagreement between any of us we just put it on the table and we disposed on it. And that's that's how decisions are made. We tried to make sure that no decision is sort of like against somebody's kind of opinion completely or like the way they see it so it kind of create problems in the future but so far You know I got. We've been in in Pretty well it sounds like when you said when you mentioned earlier about transparency being able to be transparent with each other and say well I may not agree with the fat but I trust you guys and I'm going to go ahead with it and for the best. Yeah exactly like like like I have the position of the CEO but I still think that kind of major decisions Are Better to be discussed the with with you know with our team because you get so much so many insights and opinions and like it can affect you obviously Make the decision you go in. You have to make so many decisions like honestly like we do this that you know should we. You should Redo the project a project. The you know almost always better. It's always better to choose one and not do both. So it's always attitude all with project a project B not both Spread Yourself Sane and you do both pretty reportedly you make a decision lifted Hopefully do it quick enough so that you can rebound do something else if you made mistakes. So is there something you could share. Maybe a mistake or a hardship that you've been through that you could share that how you got through that like at first I. Yeah so it goes back to what we discussed about. This is e submission thing so we went through some phases of a product headman with livestock saw. When we first started our idea actually was that we're going to create a tool for the existing stock photographers? So I mean we were thinking we would build something that existing photographers which portfolios hike thousands thousands and tens of thousands of photos use so our was that they would switch over their portfolios to wire stuck in star licensing their wire stock but when we when we first started Danish version. I I started doing workshops here in Malta and defeat bag I kept getting was that we don't need your service we already. You know we have been handling this for years you know we have some of them already hired the people that were doing this submission thing for them. Some of them you know had work their way. It's using some tools some other like efficiency tools and long story short the feedback we got was that we don't need you and so it was. It was a painful moment realizing okay you just build something that nobody eats and then yeah and then I realized at some point I kinda in a look back at one of this workshops I it and I was like wait a minute there. Was this guy who actually was pretty excited at. He uploaded some photos and some of food photos actually saw than so. Who is this guy you know? And I started kind of going back to his story and kind of analyzing NAM his behavior and his kind of like customer persona and what I realized was that this guy was. He had an account on on splash. Or I'm not sure. He told me he had tried using You know stock. Photography sides didn't like it out. I didn't think he was officiant NAS and and he was the one. We're actually loved. That sounds like we could make one person happy. We are product. Maybe there are other are more people that love our product. So that's why we switched to other sort of communities piece and other demographic and generational kind of You know the groups of people and communities and started talking to them and realize okay okay. These people are way more receptive of with what you're talking about you know and that's that was kind of the moment or is that okay. Maybe this this group is not that large but it's definitely evolving and they absolutely love our product and they see why it's helpful and how how it can help us but that moment that initial moment of kind of a little bit on annual disappointment and frustration was was a bid was something really overcome You know early on. So what would you say. You're more of an optimistic person. Ignore when you face that situation did you still have that hope and look at the bright side or was it devastating. I Yeah I really try to improve and be able to sort of I I tend to like I tend to overreact. Nah took problems to be honest with you And sometimes you go into this piano few days of like download Kind of like a student rights the regime but I always I always tend to come back back with new ideas and I'd like us to get like a piece of paper empanel start going things kind of coming up with new ideas like Tad's help but whenever I come dumping I'm always optimistic. All this is going to work for sure. Yeah Yeah. Happy founders. Who are super optimistic? Because honestly that's one. That's one advice that I would give to to entrepreneurs tour's is that like always try to find founders are at least not like pessimistic that especially the technical into nearing people. If you know if if you get this kind of like pessimistic you know like a pragmatic position from them than it. It can really drag you down happy about that. So yeah that's huge Osama McKay al..

"And we'd like to solve them at at the same time. Hi We we absolutely love seeing amazing content and and and and creating content ourselves for fun saw so it is a combination of the two things on. I love that. You're so focused on your customers. You're not focused on. How are we doing? What is is this company giving us it? Sounds like you're very customer focused and it sounds like you have a really strong culture where all of you are on the same page about that. Can you talk a little bit more about what that looks like in your workplace. I mean it sounds like you're very hard workers but maybe like to have a little fun and be creative to Tom It's it's an interesting culture at like collaboration and strong like constant communication. So we would try to be. SS Errand as possible. Whenever one of US comes up with an idea the Or comes across problem that one bar in customers has reported we immediately immediately share it and we like all we have this problem. I had had this other customer report the same issue. Let's have a meeting. You know discuss it and his. We think that if if we can solve a problem for one person that can apply to thousands of people worldwide and speaking culture you have lived in quite a few different cultures that's you grew up in Armenia. You're in Malta. Sometimes too and you went to school in the states right. So how has the living in each of those different cultures influenced infantile. You operate today How you look at growing the business? I think it's helped me a lot first of all like living the. US helped me understand your mic culture. Better and where I was coming from much better and then Like you mentioned. I lived in Europe for quite some time and and I got sort of familiar with that perspective culture and vice style as well and then it just helps you communicate so much better and an understand people and things that they're going through the daily basis on just another level I'll just give you an example. I personally think like when you're building product Like consumer product like wires. Doc You have to leave your customers live in a way you have to be able to injure yourself living their life. You know. Sort of like what happens when they wake up in the morning. What happens when they go to arrest Ryan when they meet with their friends? Being able to picture in indigenous things Absolutely crucial regardless of whether you're building photography platform or a or a taxicab or whatever it is and when when you have this perspective of different lifestyles and different cultures You can first of all communicate much much better and second the second of all like understand problems on a global scale from from global perspective and and it comes with a sort of would would've price When you listen to too many places that are sometimes find yourself in a situation where you don't fully belong to none of these spaces but I think overall it's it's it's my duty me good day? Yeah I think that's pretty awesome that you have that global perspective and you can because your your company is a global company right so you're reaching people in all those different cultures so to be able to communicate. Effectively with Egypt is huge. Yeah Yeah So. Where do you see things going for the future for wire stock or really for any of this collaboration culture you where do you see things going in the next few years our vision for Wire Stalk I'll start with data's sensually we we want wire stuck be placed for photographers are able to earn indifferent and multiple ways was started with the most basic an Afghan monetization channels just photography but we want to expanders and in the future? We want to add like brand projects other things like that as well as as well as provide targeted with some real live gigs that we can get from different platforms and our vision is we want. We don't don't WanNa be a we don't want to work end buyers at closely we want we want to be working with large platforms like stock stock platforms. We can work with this with similar wanting a other areas other industries and agreeing green as much work as possible for for Tigers Video Greg illustrators and automate automate Adleman at work as much as possible. That sort of our vision to create this one show one stop shop for photography monetization. That's fine of RS vision and In terms of vision overall in terms of the future migration suture of content. General It it's very similar to what I just said I think creators have to do as should only be Focus on on creation and on on the creative aspect of the work. Because there's so much the gas to sink often take care of and for you to worry about this other business stuff right. Business administrative repetitive edited calls emails. All this stuff so I think it goes beyond photography it and actually applied to podcasts and on Youtube content the other forms of contacting the think there will be crews evolving in the future that will ah eight this extra work and we'll help people focus on on the creative aspects of work. So that's how I see it personally. Yeah that's amazing. I think being able to see how collaboration in the future is going to be. More seamless as well. We'll be interesting. I see a lot of a a lot of creative working in their own. Little pods you know. and and how do you connect with a client. And let's say there's three creatives that have three very distinct. It's things that they do that are able to bring that one. Client three different creatives together in a way. That's that's cohesive that's great for the end client. Yeah so like one thing long idea. We had what we were thinking Ok to create like awesome. You know commercial content a you usually often need models in your photo shoot whatever it may be and usually are in traditional ways that after higher model and you have to pay them And then you take the royalties it from from your from the licensing. But this one idea we had is that you could basically collaborate in a way that copyrights or the rights to on the ownership rights of content sort of divided between target for the and model. And maybe there's an editor or someone our manager and then whenever the shoot is done and you can just like split out the ownership. Bryant's royalties payments. It's kind of split up between people and that kind of can issue can create a easy to use. WHO's a tool for that? I think I think it could be very artful. So I told you much easier. Yeah Yeah because there's a a lot of people. There's a lot of amazing creatives that I've met who are fantastic at what they do but they may not be a great business person and so they suffer because of that their art is amazing. But how do they get in front of people and collaborate with other people and get paid for their time. So yeah I definitely see. That's that's all that we want to experiment sweet for sure. This idea of of simplifying are making collaboration. Easier like legally and Technically Easier yeah because legally right now. They're still that pain point of having to fill out the release forms and it's the same information that you're you're filling out and you have to get them to sign it. And how do you do that easily. Getting your clients to sign off on something and taking a picture on your phone of the thing they signed in and uploading it. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's something that actually on our roadmap that something we won't have an a feature. We're working on right now. His we WANNA we want to like make this mother released creation is completely digital so we wanted digitalize old process. So you don't have to physically prints your and then like you have your model sign and eight. And then they make a mistake and they're like all. You made a mistake here. I have to print it out of Japan. I would do think friendly wire stuck experience. We think biggest most painful element. And that's what we're going to focus on next is like this digitalization aspect of it. You know the candy with your With your desktop computer. Yeah well good luck with Adam excited about seeing that seeing that. Yeah well I have another question question for you. What is this like behind the scenes for you personally going through this whole process I mean? Are you working all the time. Or how do you find time to kind of feed your F- yourself because there's a lot of creativity that you love how to give back to yourself and stay healthy that way you know me and my cofounders were also friends so we hang out together so I think with sort of evolved into this immersive states of like warrick in life of immersing together you know with our families friends saw wire stock is just part of our lives. You know. That's how we view it and we don't treat it as as as like this song kinda tedious work that separated from our life and we treated like something that we have. We just have fun doing Because otherwise honestly wouldn't be possible. I don't make sense at all but it's your passion so it doesn't feel like work as much as what it sounds. It's what you guys love to do and you do it together with people you enjoy doing it with although it can be more difficult in some ways when you're doing the friends because how do you guys manage that when there's a tough decisions that have to be made and like how do you come to agreement and some of those things. Yeah.

"That that was kind of the armament or that okay. Maybe this group is not that large. But it's definitely voting and they absolutely love our product. It's helpful this is the square one. Show it today. Our guest comes from clear across the world in Armenia. His name is Mikhail Khachaturyan Chatrier. CEO of wire stock that I. Oh It's a stock agency where you can upload one place and sell your photos on multiple content places like Shutter Stock Adobe Stock Doc and much more boy found them after uploading my own stock photos to multiple places and realised how cumbersome and time consuming it was in. There has got to be a better way than this so I kept looking but I didn't see the solution. I was looking for until someone from wire. Stock contacted me about the platform now. Oh I could upload my photos to one place quick and simple and they would keyword and tag them and send them to all the major stock agencies. The saved me hours of my time. Name and the Hassle of Keyword in each photo just takes so much brainpower to that well. They were quick to respond to my questions and I was very impressed with what they were doing and how they were problem solving and how nice they were. Someone had found a simple solution to one of my pain points. Isn't that what we're trying to do right so it was telling Dave we really need to have them on our show. I think they have a great story behind what they're doing and I reached out in the CEO. Mickael got back to right away and said yes. I'd love to be on your show. So in today's episode you'll get to hear more about Mikhail his background and how they're providing solutions and helping creatives create and they can save time doing all the administrative ministration stuff. Here's our conversation with Mikhail. So so what is your background and then As more like technology or or finance maniac. Yeah I was more that I would. I would always had I was always passionate about mathematics and art. Statistics saw. Aw when I was going to school I sort of had this focus on statistics and not the matic sending I got to finance. I started my career at in finance more specifically like trading and and portfolio portfolio management. And things like that. I realized it was to kind of Board created for for my personality Sorority. Yes I got into technology more and like product development very early on in my career so so you have black kind of creative and scientific brain at the same time going there right. Business Technology like Like scientific statistical mind in a way. Well it's fascinating looking back at your story and knowing that you have kind of that creative brain in mathematics brain and you ended up starting wire stock completely make sense right for that time when we time when we we got into a stock photography specifically because we were like like I said we I mean we always loved shooting photos and You know teach inch Creating content when we're traveling and college but like when we got into the business side of stock photography specifically's when am One of my co founders had this man social dating application back in the day We had to buy a lot of stock content. Like we like it so we were promoting like off line Dates dating with our at. This was a few two years ago and we we had to a US stock. You know stock the content so we used to buy a lot of like A images of happy couples and so you had experience using that end of the the photography photography world. Yeah and requests come from. Yeah I mean we saw tremendous value in this kind of this kind of content. That you just click on a few buttons. You have a piece of content that you can use in your ad banner immediately in just a matter of seconds Keep in mind. This was two thousand sixteen and fifteen and we didn't have this three image download sites backing day. They are like super low quality so stock photography back down was second no brainer. You had to use it if you want to do affected marketing shooting fast so I know that the prices of stock of a jogger fear going way down Even you know twenty five cents here or ten sends their for someone to use a stock photo. So how as a creative. How do we take our time and recreate these beautiful images share them with the world world? How does that work supporting our family doing that? Or doesn't it. Do we need to find another job. Or how do we be creative. Make an income on family wise to support ourselves we promoted promote our service as an opportunity to earn. Ah Extra citing doing things that You as a creative person law with onto view it as a as a main in source of income for anyone at least at scale right I mean some people some race may be able to achieve it. If they open up studios and do it likes full time and focus on it but I think for most of for most of us stock photography can just be good weight Like extra extreme. Come doing things that you're going to do anyway. So yes I like now. And that's why that's why it's important to have a service wire stock that takes away all this adleman kind of word away and so you can. Just it's like okay. I have this contents I was gonna I mean I wanted to shoot. Some Christmas photo is now in my family whatnot. And then you just have this content and with a few clicks able to list it on this marketplaces and you're able to earn income. Where where the return on investment? It is more reasonable as opposed to doing it at all the way with all these websites. In all forms and nutcase return on investment. It's just a poor so that's our vision. Actually Yan Sen. What part of Your Business would you say your most passionate about? Are you I'm trying to provide that service or is it the the quality images of the art or like what is driving you Everyday when you go to build this business I think at the culture of our company and our team is one of my more problem solving with a touch of creativeness so we are sounds all we like to think of ourselves as problem solvers so when when we come to work we sort of come to work with the mission of solving real problem helping people achieve something at that they would otherwise not able to achieve saw we We have a very strong technical team. engineering wise. Half of our team. Are you know have background you engineering and we like to. We don't. I don't mind being challenged with enough sort of a difficult tech.

"Is real and it's not like a bunch of actors. I know that when the show first came out there were people that were kind of accusing Some of us like Oh. These people aren't even from ear people from like L. A.. And hired help from New York City and stuff brought to Erie because an interesting backdrop op. But these aren't even real people but now we are really people. I assure you in a lot of the story line in drama is real talk about the true reality. I think Golob people when they hear about the here while you're working with a billionaire now so you must be at least a millionaire now. 'cause he started this business with a billionaire so Tell us about that reality. What is it like now having gone through this? And where are you at now with Your Business and how auctions yes all along during the show. Oh we were putting in a lot of hours and I was still in my corporate job for for a most of the filming of the show and several of the people that were involved with the show up were on their own small business so they were kind of balancing like. They're keeping their doors open while also helping Glenn and then there was me and another gentleman that were still oh in a full-time nine to five job. So it was just a really weird balancing act for all of us and we put in a ton of time and I started to wonder like man. If I'm putting in this many hours these other folks are putting in even more hours Amis anybody here because whereas going yeah right like what is the endgame in here so of course we all started to kind of wonder and formulate our own furious to what was going to happen. Some people were suspicious rightfully so this was all going to maybe be a scam scam. Even my friends like dude. You'RE GONNA get taken for everything on this seems so shady and I've seen that yeah a lot of dead by Gosh I just I guess I was fired by the people around me that they were so trusting clan and they were really pouring their heart and soul in a lot of the projects that he had us working on it. Only well I'm not going to be the one that's like. Never mind one out so I am so glad I did because again like it. All just sort of Part of God's plan was like this whole oh process for me because finally about halfway through the show. I really just accumulated enough outside. Client work that I was doing on the side. It really started hinder with my personal life. And I'm like man I kind of in the middle now with like I can't take anymore like freelance work on. I also can't work nine to five even come home and be like no sorry guys. Leave me alone I have to go into my office. Works as like. Maybe this is the right time to really think about jumping in leaving my desk the job and pursuing my own passions and trying to start my own business and again the timing with the show couldn't be more perfect because this was a guy who had worked in corporate America America and so I had that connection with him and then the people around me were all entrepreneurs I was inspired and motivated by them. Like man if these people can do it I can do it to anti all. The pieces of the puzzle fit together so well that I finally decided to do it and I know that a lot of people ask me like Oh is it. It was this show wasn't like you thought you were GonNa make like a million dollars. She left her the job. Like no no it was really. It was God's plan because the show is just a piece of the puzzle. It was the next step for me. Yeah in again. You didn't have any idea what the truth was in the show at that point you you just still thought Glenn was just as guy transparent a small business correct. Yeah I just knew that like I said I. It was drawn to him and I wanted to be around more. Wanted to be with team more so like they were all doing stuff sometimes during the day still at my desk you know what my job corporate American I was was like man. I don't know I just feel really feel really torn because I want to be out there with Helping them because this is a true light team project here when you're you're working in corporate. It's a huge company in its its silo a little bit and this was just like a total team. Collaboration and I'm like I kind of like I kind of like being the underdog. If you will work Erin Yeah. It was cool when I was still so intrigued by where this is all going new at this point like sanders cameras. Everywhere and and drama happening recapturing. It all on starting to think like this is going to be a TV show documentary berries or in the Netflix Watch. Yeah I was very much intrigued by what was going to happen in what was going on with the show. That's cool. Hang on. Take a little pause here in between until you're working a corporate job you're doing freelancing This undercover billionaire is being recorded all of this at the same time. You're also married trade with bess and grady. Grady is how old now he's too and you've got to be three in a month. Some okay so let's kind of dive into that a little little bit. If you're okay talking about family how have you. How were you able to manage all of that? An Howard you and Beth communication was ever point where bet when Beth's like okay acres just pick one and go for it or like. Why are you doing all this stuff for free with this is what's wrong? How did that relationship look like well? My wife is really patients about it and luckily we are definitely on the same page with with our faith in kind of like what we believe and she kinda got the same feeling that I did. Luckily that like God was up the something through this process because you know just fell it valley like something cool is going to become of it so she was really supportive and like I would be gone on like on a Saturday or whenever I wasn't working so to speak With with the team with Glenn in the film critic We'd be gone for all day like filming stuff around town or are working somewhere on on on a project and she didn't really I could never tell her like either like what she went time. Will you be home. And I'm like I don't the because this is like with with filming of things like it always takes way longer because they can't maybe would make you do something again or if they did an interview with you they'd ask you a bunch. The questions like hey tells about how today when it always took longer than I thought it baffles always really understanding because she agreed that like something cools was happening here so it it was hard though because again like i. I wasn't getting paid. It was a huge time commitment and it was also hard because I was enjoying it and I was really early life torn and kind of reaching a point my life and my career as like. I'm enjoying this more than an Getting up in the morning going to a desk job so this would like what I'm supposed to be doing eventually so start asking questions. Family Dynamic was fine. I know like again lots of questions. But we knew that Something cool was happening happening so my wife was cool about it. My son Buckley is to younger really understand but it was pretty cool about it right. Yeah he was he was definitely cool about it. The bottom mindlessly the the thing that was negatively impact my family was my lack of fulfillment in the work. I was doing my wife knew I wasn't happy a hand. Obviously my son probably probably pick up on a times while that was really what was mark concerning to me. Is this opportunity with the show and McLennan team more like an outlet for me and I felt kind of salvage amish because And if you're not happy at work and then you run it off and doing this stuff to give you fulfillment you gotta find a balance because your family is gonNA suffer so Yeah lots of prayer in and in everything else that goes into making big decisions and again. This was the right time to make the jump and I took the jump and it's been so much better. Watch sesame today like you know what I'm so proud of you because you you took a leap of faith and I can just tell I can tell even more than maybe you can. You're just happier happier announcing that you were miserable. I can just tell your happier right now. 'cause you're actually doing what you love to do and for some people. Unfortunately they like you guys talk to people on the show all the time that they may be go through a lot of their lives not ever really doing what they love to do. So that's where I'm at right now now and I couldn't be happier. I love that and because you have started with social media way back when and you understand the roots of it and you understand what it is meant to be able to help people with that Help connect them. That's what I love is. You're doing it from an authentic place in. It's more a tool to connect people in to serve people it's not about these gimmicky Sales opportunities and stuff like that data. I think that's that's awesome. Yeah for sure. And that's that's what I love about it like I don't I don't approach it as a sales tool a lot like if someone comes up to me and says hey we WANNA hire. Are you to to really drive sales with social media. I'm probably that's probably not someone necessarily GonNa want to work with that Sir. Primary objective checked with social media. Because I don't really promote that. I think it can be a tool or a component of selling. But I think it's gotta start with connecting and in communicating with customers and not throwing a bunch of sales pitches at them So yeah I guess that's kind of where the authentic pieces for me is that I I've been exposed to it enough so so of you that there's gotta be approach to it than just being like. Okay we'll let run a bunch of facebook ads promoting your product right and I love. You know we've worked with you Chris personally and highly recommend you. You know your stuff. I love that you come from it with an authentic heart in place and why I remember one thing you said to me. It was like you know. Oh you can create content and in in my mind. I thought okay instagram account. I need to be creating content all the time you know really just create a little bit of content. Connect a lot comment on other people's things and be genuine about it start. Those conversations adds more about that the social the social part of social media and Authentically connecting with people not trying to use them and get something out of them but to serve them. And I think that's always loved by your philosophy. How you handle it? Yeah yeah definitely I always tell. I like to tell people that they should communicate before they create. 'cause a Lotta people especially the ones that I get to work with the even like you guys..

"You were pursuing in baseball. And then you realize you baseball players you went into broadcast and communications. which gave you the opportunity to work in baseball for years? And then you kept following your passion that you're learning about social media which take you to mercy her so now ended up along. The opportunity is start this on this business and then once he started this business it freed up some of your time. Although that sounds like to win you got a phone call or hover. It happened to be on this reality show. Undercover billionaire sounds like queue or able to have some time opportunity to take that opportunity to so. You'll talk just a few minutes about that experience this and maybe just explain what the show is is and how you ended up part of it yes shortly after I started to wonder if maybe God is opening some new doors for me in my career for this opportunity kind of Came about where a friend of mine sent me a facebook post from local small business development center. Here he repented this. There's very vague. But as you said like somebody was trying to start a business in theory which number one. That's great because that's what we want. We want new businesses INARI cruel and it said currently I seeking assistance with the following areas and there was all kinds of things like carpenter to You know artists. Interior designers designers marketing people website developers social media expert everything photography sunlight. This is interesting and I think that I probably probably fit in there somewhere whether it's from just general marketing perspective or maybe the social media piece so I I reached out and said Hey I'm interested I did. I don't really know a lot about what you got going on here but sign me up because I'm not completely fulfilled at my current job. I feel like there's something going on in my heart so American. It turned down an opportunity like this. So Lo and behold I kind of went to this casting call if you WANNA call it or not addition. They interviewed me. They asked me questions about where it was my career and why I want to get involved with this and what I thought it was and I really didn't have any clues vicious kind of faith thing thing you know where you're just like God's up to something and I'm just GonNa like what do I have to lose like the day I wake up tomorrow night I go to my regular job. Untreated again very well there and it's a great stable company to work for but let me just or other things and see what's going on in like a couple of weeks go by and I get a call back and they're are like hey we won't ask you a few more questions than we think that the this gentleman who starting this business is interested in working with you I was like okay. This is cool so I this point thought like like well. This might be a cool little freelance project or this kind of build into my clientele of side work that I'm doing in still. This point really didn't get a whole lot of detail. What kind of business? Who was this guy that wanted to start the business? Why is he choosing Erie Because he was town we knew that from the beginning that he eh kind of in fine print. There was something about what he wanted to document. All this film so I thought okay. This is cool. You know. This guy is just going to make a youtube channel about what. It's like to be entrepreneur. You're innocent cool because I think it could. It'd be a positive thing for Erie Pennsylvania because unfortunately over the last ten years that I've lived here we've kind of been on the map and on the national stage for fuel unfortunate fortunate things like the Pizza bomber documentary rain huge Netflix. But not exactly for not great for that right. I mean I've binged it twice but it is like who has an hour even during the presidential election in twenty twenty sixteen gene. We remade The highlights I some you know some negative things. It was cool. Because the Erie really rallied around that and STEPPED UP A. We aren't so bad after all. You should come check out. You know our cities gray number on the rise so there's energy around you that I wanna be a part of so. Oh I thought this opportunity might might give me that chance so anyway Yeah I I got on involved with this this show. I got beat Glenn who is starting a business business year in Iraq to meet the other people that were selected. It was a small group of us. I I guess I pictured was going to be a bunch of people. 'cause roles and responsibilities listed on this is Kinda last fide ad that I saw and it was a small group of us and I could tell right from the beginning of a diverse group of people and and I was really excited because I thought man if I ever do end up going out on my own this is going to be great networking opportunity for me just to other people from Erie that I knew who many of them were but never really had a chance like actually get to know any of them so Yeah that was. It was a really cool opportunity to meet a bunch of New People to meet Glen An and at this point after we met for the first time I knew something was going on because this was gonna be more than like a youtube via this was like butte religious alleged cameras producers. There's a lot of there too. Yeah who I am so like this was on the first red flag. Went up for me. This opportunity is going to be something pretty special. Aw but you still didn't know exactly what I mean. You didn't even know it was discovery channel. Did you at that. Point is just kind of the premise of the show is that he's a billionaire. In real your life became posing as just a guy. That's trying to start a business in his fifties late fifties But the the actual show premises says that he's trying to create a million dollar business ninety days with only one hundred dollars. But you didn't know that entire time correct you. I don't know that he's a billionaire. You don't know that. He has a time limit and he needs to create a million dollar business. Where all you know that this guy is going on and you WanNa be the apartment? And he's got a bunch of cameras. Yeah yeah that's exactly it and I guess I should go back and say that the first time I met Glen in person in this kind of this interview setting it was after I had gone to the audition. That's when they called me back into a few more questions for Glenn interviews like okay. I there were some special about him. I liked him. There's one instinct that I trust the most south my perception of character. And I just got a good vibe if you will from him right from the beginning inning so When I was told that Hey Glenn likes you? He wants you out his team. I was like I wanna I WANNA be around this guy. Something special about him. He seems cool. I knew his story every was like Dave said he was in his mid late fifties. He had recently overcome a cancer and from what I was told this was kind of like a bucket listing for him that he wanted to open a business because he almost died and he realized that man life is short. Let's let's do this now. And he had been working in what was described to me as corporate America. And that's exactly where I was into here. The way to delete fifty five to pursue his dream. I was like well. There's probably no coincidence day. God brought this guy in my life because that could be someday Love Corporate America Right. Now I don't WanNa wait till well. I have a cancer diagnosis to realize. Oh Man I should really pursue my passion to not wait around for this to happen so his story was intriguing to me because I have again a kind of connect with it with the season of life and so yeah did not realize he was a billionaire because to the oddest not that I know many billionaires but he didn't seem like somebody with a lot of money in a lot to lose. He seemed like somebody who was just trusting a a group of random people from Erie Pennsylvania to help him accomplish a goal and I wanted to get behind behind his goal. Because I knew that story was unique and I won back. I want to help. I really wasn't looking to make money and again it was like a preferable thing professional. Move for me like experience. Yeah after we're like if nothing else I wanNA help 'cause I can I wanna make a mob achieve his goal. Yeah and that's what's fascinating because nobody guys has we're paid during that whole time and you didn't even know what the business was. You guys were kinda oldest following on faith and hoping something was going to come out of it which I I think is pretty awesome in which everybody will find out next week by the time this airs. Actually the last episode will have aired in launch. It we'll get to know whether or not he was successful. Yes yet this By the time this your podcast comes out. This show will be over. I can't believe it's been eight weeks already in my opinion just based on film when I was a part of they could have made this easily at a sixteen week series. Because it's crazy to me. How much coach editing? And I know that you guys know plenty about you have to you have to edit this this spiel down to a reasonable time and I can't even understand handed. Comprehend how they were able to take everything. A film than all the content and edited down to eight hour. Long episodes like it's crazy. How much has been left left out on whether intentionally or unintentionally unintentionally light a crazy? They fit it all in the eight weeks and Yeah it'll be it'll be great to see how all things finish up here in by the time folks listening to this show they will know the end result but regardless of what happens. I highly recommend that folks listening that are from Pennsylvania are within the region or western Pennsylvania. they should check out the restaurant underdog barbecue because that is essentially kind of spoiler learned for business that Glenn and his team be included We're a part of starving so it's a reality show right right. Would you consider it reality. Now that you've been a part of it and behind the scenes reality ish. Yeah that's great is. Dr David reality-tv ATV but it has been I opening for me to see how reality. TV is actually made. Obviously I know that there is some post production work done. There's some some scripting and things happen behind the scenes poking exactly yeah so it is definitely reality. TV because a lot of the the the the content they capture is is raw in it.

"Just because he like you know it's going to require a little bit of internal fortitude. So a you know. Maybe it's not very satisfying answer. But I think that largely it's finding something in yourself and pushing through it and sort of going fighting against resists it's you know there's this guy named Steven Press feel. The book called the the war remarked. Or the art of war and He's he's got some books that are really good that in that particular book he talks a lot about this this intangible or this idea of resistance and I think that that's a really clever way or an interesting interesting way to sort of think about this because you're holding yourself back. You're being held back by the expectations of others. You being held back by whatever but for some reason you're running into this resistance and and so I think if you can sort of acknowledged that understand that there is this resistance but you can easily just sidestep it. You know that might sort of help people to overcome that because it's it really does come from within and like I said I mean I'm I'm not even to this day like I'm not a wild risk taker. Most of the stuff you know even like the start up businesses and things things that start looking into like you know. I've never just quit. A job jumped off yet for an idea. I'm not I'm not that guy. Now those guys exists but I'm not and so So for me. I've always baby staffed and unfortunately well fortunately and unfortunately I've I've not experienced a lot of damage either. I didn't give up everything everything for something and then lose everything. But I've probably not moved as quickly as I could if I had been a little bit more of a gap and so I think you know there's is that balance and understanding that balance but I think also just understanding that there is no magic bullet. There is no anything you just actually have to go out and do something and you know like gazette earlier about sort of not having a clear path or being you know. You're able to hear something but not converted into something actionable. We kind of have to stop looking being out to everybody else in and stop and listen to our own gun because usually we kind of know what the answer is we just have. We just have to do it. And you know like for for example with me in this personal branding experiment you know like up to two years ago. Remember Mr Interbrew. So this idea of putting myself out there and being on camera and writing in being on podcasts or whatever like this is a totally different world like I'm not like the same guy you know and so I'm not looking for that kind of attention you know I don't like to be the center of attention okay and so So this is a challenge but I recognize that if I'm supposed to develop my business I'm supposed to have some sort of consultative life down the road road. I'm supposed to take what was a freelance career. And make it a business because my wife mandated it. Then you know I have to hook up. I have to overcome. What is my natural Roland in action and do it and so you know and hopefully it's not that dire for everybody who's listening to you know? Hopefully it's not you know down to you've got to make this work or else but But sometimes a little added pressure. You know whether it's something you can self imposed or whether it's against something real you know is kind of what you need to be able to push stance. I love of that David and I were out for a walk this morning. We were talking about you know. We're interviewing the square ones. The ones you just don't seem to fit in that round peg. Hey Square pegs. Where around hall I still hanging You perfectly fit with that. Is You know you kind of challenge. Challenge the status quo. You ask questions you take action and there's no particular formula that's what you're saying. There's no formula for that kind of stuff. You just step step into out. Yeah Yeah I imagine for some people they you know maybe you know going down the straight path you know getting an Education Asian like for my wife for example. She's very a very driven. She went to school to become a teacher. She became a teacher. Who she she went down very half? Miami is like this insane Miami. You know eventually tends to manifest in us by requires all this weird stuff. Yeah I mean you know basically basically I've come. I've come up with this phrase and it's not very eloquent but I have to tell myself this you know usually once or twice a day that basically it takes all the decisions I've made this point arrive at where I am So because a lot of times especially if you get caught up with the youtube crowd or whatever. You're trying to keep up with the the Gary V's Tony Robbins runs types. You know you can sometimes end up putting yourself down or feeling bad about your state in life because it doesn't feel like you've accomplished anything I mean. Look at this guy. He's so successful. Off You know. And so I had to resort to using this phrase. I had a woman on our podcast day. she's twenty six years old. She's creative director art director. You know woman of many hats in the ad like advertising design business but in our conversation she was sort of solving a a lot of the life truths that I've just been working on in the last year or two and immediately I was thinking. Oh my God like I should saw except twenty year ago like I'm so behind the curve. Serve like what am I doing. I'm such a failure all this stuff and then you know I sort of think about this phrase and I go okay well it took me every choice I've ever made. This is point to arrive here to hear her. And so there's no other way there wasn't a shortcut there wasn't a straight line. There wasn't anything I had to do. All this in order to me and so and by doing that it gives a little bit of solace and helps me not feel like I'm behind the curve or whatever and seems sleep at night. That's the biggest the thing I not to compare ourselves to other people so easy to compete. You have it's tough especially nowadays with social media and Instagram. Where appears that everyone you know is always in Hawaii? I don't know why but everybody's always on vacation or they've all got now like I mean it's the craziest world I didn't realize people so wealthy but But apparently you know people people are so when you sit and you spend a lot of time in social media you know. It's really easy to fall into those traps. Especially as young people who don't necessarily understand the economics of owning it can sorta roll their eyes and recognize. It's not and eventually the truth will find you right. There's so many people able I. INSTAGRAM influencers reading books on that. And how it's a complete farce. It's like you're you're building this brand or business on a on a lie and in the end it's not worth but else way I mean what's that we always ask. And what is your definition of success. Because you're just chasing that and the money and the status you're GonNa be let down an empty every time. That's why I love what you're talking about building these relationships and putting your energy and effort into doc that that is where you'll find some of that fulfillment and that to me is more success than any kind of yacht or status or yeah well and and you know generally speaking I mean not always but I mean a lot of times you know the financial success or whatever will come here as a product of building the relationships right. I mean you build these great equality relationships with people and then they wanna work with you and then they want to do this and that you know so so it does sort of you know. Yeah I mean to give it you in a disclaimer example. Like right now. I'm coaching my oldest son's bemoaning and we've got a you know these twelve year old kids and you know there. I mean hormonal. They just started seventh grade. They're all going crazy right now and You know we. We're having a really hard time because you know Coen will teach them these plays. That are really complicated. They just can't can't can't figure out. And so we've been spending a lotta time. This season focusing on really fundamental stuff. You know going back and just how do you how do you block. How how do you catch catch a pass? How do you handle something you know? Our plays have become very simple. You know this is your route. Just run a on easy peasy and You know by doing this now. All of a sudden kids performing a much higher level right and then you can tack on little things and you can give them little tricks and stuff and help them evolve but it all Starts with this really basic fundamental thing for me. Relationships are the core there the building block or the foundation that we build everything on and so in terms terms of finding success or finding everything else you know without the relationship component. There is nothing else you know. If you don't have that cornerstone or that foundation to build on top of well you've got a you know a massive bricks everywhere you don't have something to actually build upon and so you know so to that idea of success or whatever I mean yeah of course corsets various objective. People want different things in that kind of deal but I think largely focusing on relationships will allow you eventually achieve that sort of financial wellbeing. You're looking for but even if you don't the happiest people with the best relationships with no money are still the happy exactly. Yeah I love that and so yeah so I think that's a you know a pretty great awesome well Ryan. What's been almost an hour? We really want to respect your time. We appreciate your time and all your thoughts going into all this. I think this will resonate definitely with us and hopefully with our listeners. As well so before we leave. Is there a website instagram twitter. Email that people can connect with you. You don't mind if if I give a couple of art are.

"It's not like I've grown up doing woodworker anything and And so it's been kind of an interesting journey so we're having a lot of fun with it and like I said hopefully we'll we'll have already. And how is that working with your wife. is the communication and relationship. They're strong or do you find that you're learning more about each other and trying to communicate in different ways. Well it's interesting what it did to sort of our sort of normal operation you know we. We met each other in high school. We've been married twenty four now. We're pushing knocking on the door. Forty you know. So we've known each other longtime we've been through a lot of these sort of ups and downs and business business and all this stuff and and we've always sort of managed work at totally separate lives. She was schoolteaching. I was always doing my thing and we just you know. Our roads don't cross has very often rain fine and so and I just we come home and meet in the middle and then we have young kids and family and stuff sort of have that sort of central bond. I guess but what happened with this is is. We had this realization. I had no idea how far removed she was from things that are pretty commonplace to me now and so for her. She was stressing a lot because she was learning a lot of new stuff that she had no idea. You know she's always been the person who bought the product not the person who made the rain so she didn't didn't ever didn't really understand all the goes into you know I mean and really for most people they probably don't realize how much thought and how much planning how much everything else go into a product said no idea and so I felt much much more comfortable in that space because these are people that I talked to all the time whether I'm trying to sell them services or develop a relationship with them and you know so for me it wasn't that scary but I didn't realized just how scary it was going to be for my wife or difficult for her just because it's totally foreign land. Totally different learning did give. Yeah so I mean it did lead to you. Know a few little skirmishes and things like that mostly because she was stressed out and I was trying to say. Hey man relax go with the flow but she doesn't wear but relaxed Remagen. None yet never worked. So that was you know the the worst of it was a little bit of that. But she's supremely Organiz. She's you know a a great like pass-master put stuff on on a to do list. Get things done kind of person. I am a super loose creative and I'm all over the place all the time and so so we actually have really complimentary. They'll sets the late. I think you know sort of help this in the saying and it's unfortunate she can't spend more time now it because I would like to launch this with her. You know but we'll we'll drag. Our oldest boy is twelve so we'll drag him down. He got him chopping blocks before long. We'll try and turn it into a little bit of a family. Operation Insert which is cool and unique and different from basically every other operation Dolphins rainbows been sort of Solo shows. Yeah that's cool. It'd be interesting to see how all that comes out. So just looking into the future Ryan. Where do you Kinda see you and your family? Where would you like to put yourself in the future kind of things that you're gonna be doing obviously during the widow work and more advertising and design but is there something that you are looking at in the future that think? I still want to go after this. Well I I think there are a lot of things and it changes by the day so this is a hard question for somebody like me. I've got this laundry list to stop and I spend all day like each as a new the future for me but largely the idea is to continue to grow our to do so continuing to get a bill agency. develop better high-quality relationships relationships with our clients that are meaningful and impactful and by doing so that becomes something. That's really rewarding to me into those who work with us. So so that's kind of the goal on the Front Although I do intend to be doing less work myself start moving out and trying you know augment Mike Desertion Russian and the work that I do in the company with other people With the express purpose of allowing me to have more time to work on other things like widow and you know this other laundry realistic things. I've got I'm also you know and you know the reason we were interested in doing. A podcast is in addition our show. You know I'm trying to do more on sort of the personal branding front things that are sort of related to just me as an individual Doing a lot of writing and a lot of things like that lately. I anticipate doing more sort of content creation developing a little bit of a probably consultative practice on top of them. That will sort of be a big part of my future going forward and allow me the freedom to ultimately. I'd like to be spending half half year. Maybe in Spain You know and get to where I can do. Even you know I mean my whole business was built remotely so I mean we've built the whole company from the ground up to be able to work from anywhere on the planet so I can. I can handle my work from from Spain and I'd like to get over there of course it'd probably wait until the kids get out of school or something off to call a right but But that's okay. That'll give me a few building years in well we'll work on all that stuff so they're sort of that that three three-phase attack there's the the agency there's personal branding and then there's sort of any other projects I'm working on so the podcast is one of those and with our podcast. We're looking to Well right now. We're in the process of launching our podcast podcast network. So we're going to start launching several shows out of our studio Some other things like that so we're looking to sort of grow that presence as well and then And then the other personal branding stuff the writing and eventually will do Bacher some amazing you've done so many different things. I think a lot of our listeners are sitting there in in a desk job nine to five desk job driving to and from work and thinking. Gosh I'd like to start something I'd like to do something but I'm not sure how I don't know where to to start. What advice would you give them? Will you know this is a really interesting subject. And it's actually something we put a lot of thought to because the for example as I've you you know I mean I'm I'm guilty of of this and so probably many of your listeners. If that's sort of where they're at you know we get online. And we watch the Gary V's or the Tony Robbins or the whomever and we look for business advice and we try and learn whatever we can from them and I'm having a really hard time articulating it opinion down. But there's some step in between that we're all missing thing so we're hearing the advisers but being able to act on. It seems impossible and you know I mean they make it sound so easy right just produce twenty five pieces of content the day you know oh go out and start public speaking bubble the horse. I mean obviously those are the things but that the ability to actually take that step and move into it is really hard and and so like right now at least in the podcasting sphere We're developing a what we're calling. Our show is called eggs. Developing the eggs podcasts academy in basically it's kind of a educational educational program for this and one of the things that I'm spending a lot of time studying up on trying to explore is. How do we communicate these skills? How do we share these skills than and actually allow people to do because it is one thing to be told but it's totally another thing to be able to afford pasta? Well that was one of the the struggles you know just to bring it back to the whittle experience and and working with my wife on that stuff. I told her things that we should be doing. And so my inclination is Zoa. She's very out and do it. Then I would find that. She was having trouble moving on it which is very uncharacteristic for her. 'cause she's such go-getter but but that's sort of made the start clicking with me that I was like okay. There's something and I don't know what it is. It's intangible something I suspect it's probably probably based in fear or something like that that it's really difficult to make those moves if you've never made them before it's like you almost need someone you know to hop on their back and have them carry through training in order order for you to understand it and I was even talking to the guys that run this tangible school this e-commerce academy that was going to with our little product. Because you know they're doing a lot of the stuff they're trying to train people on how to launch ECOMMERCE businesses and I found that the sessions that I was out with them. Where a person you know for example Apple? They did a a session on pay per click marketing. And you know and we do this in our business. I mean I understand this but to sit down and do it for my own. Product is still different and so You know they had whoever it was came in and spoke that day but that guy got online and everybody logged in on their computers and everybody did those couple of things together and we all walked through these steps together and then I was totally prepared to go do that for my business. Where on in other classes I had people tell me their experience or explain to me what they've done to to make their business successful and yet I could do? I could take almost no action against their advice and so so anyway. So yeah so. We're working on that allows so it's really difficult for me to give advice on how to actually make stuff like that happen. I think the biggest thing is a I mean some of that as much as we go out and we look for somebody to inspire I or whatever it kind of has to come from within. So we're all looking for cheat sheets enroll looking for easier ways to do something. Oh you know I want to have a personal brand yet. I don't WanNa to be on camera or like like internally. There's some stuff that you have to fight through and no matter how much Gary v Yells. You're not gonNA beyond the yet like you're not going to be able to make that staffer feel comfortable on camera..
