John Zmirak: 'America Was Founded by Conspiracy Realists'

"The battles of Lexington and Concord, April, 1775, the British were marching to Lexington and Concord to take away the guns. Let's not forget about that. I usually do forget about that, John. So I'm really glad you framed it this way. Every government attempt to ban guns. We should treat as like Lexington and Concord. Every last one. The time to use your guns is on the people trying to come take them away because guess what? That's your last chance. The American colonists knew this. Well, they successfully fought the Revolutionary War. And they set up the Articles of Confederation with the first system of government. It was actually too weak. Then they convened a constitutional convention and they set up our system of government, which people like James Madison craft and Alexander Hamilton, the federalist papers that chronicle how it was worked out. They developed our system of government based on a careful study of where historical regimes had gone wrong, where monarchies had gone wrong, where democracy had gone wrong. And they purposely set up a government that would frustrate itself that would trip over its own feet with the president pulled against the Congress and pulled against the courts. They were a modern terms paranoid about the abuse of power. They set up each branch of government to frustrate the other two so that they would be intention at all times so that nobody could become a dictator.

Our First Amendment Rights Are Under Severe Threat

"That really is kind of a fundamental problem here. And when you think about totalitarian governments, what you usually have is a very centralized group of people that are in power and kind of a dictator like way. I mean, it's not one individual, but a group of individuals. And this totalitarian system basically requires the subservience of the population of the state and that's a real problem, because when you have one system, one system of government controlling thought controlling what you can see, controlling what you can hear, then that becomes very much large scale censorship, which prohibits any kind of diversity and thought. In that kind of system, physical arrest, detentions, these kinds of things are very prominent because if you dare to go against the quote unquote regime or part of the problem. And so they control the masses through state run media because they're controlling the message. And I'm just a big believer. I think every American is really fundamentally in a diverse message, a message that maybe sometimes you don't want to hear and maybe you think is totally utterly stupid, but it's your right as an American. Given our First Amendment, it's a right to hear it. And that's what's really and truly under threat, combined with, of course, the willingness of so many people to just

It's really like the slowing down. I am the ceo. Visionary of this business. And i'm going to make decisions that are in the spirit of all of the values and the goals in the integrity in the soul of the business to then start to make the decisions from there. Is i have to hurry up and get this done. Because i have to fix this problem. It's like yes. We are addressing all of the things. We're gonna make conscious decisions. But we're going to do so from a place of like. This is in alignment with what we're looking to create in our business in our lives. Does that make sense. Yeah makes sense. And i know you started off a prophet. I saying it's it's simple or at least it sounds simple and obviously nothing is simple and getting books in order dependent upon how off they are could be challenging even working with a coach. What do you see as some of the holdups are some of the reasons why people even if they know this is what they should be doing that they're not able to execute that roadmap to get to where they need to go. I mean i really think it comes down to mindset in limiting beliefs and self like self sabotage so you can turn around and look at all the numbers and see all the results and then just think that like. Why can i take action. And it's really slowing down in asking yourself. Why can't you do that in and again having that thought like i said to you before they really saying like profit first implementation like. Why can't i do this and like the thoughts that come down and like what is your resistance behind it. They're all gonna come up. I've tried to do this before nothing ever works. I've done this. I've done this in what you see. Is these patterns of thoughts that you have in so when you have thoughts of profit i will never work for me because i never stick to anything or i'm really bad at money so this will never work when you have thoughts like that. That's not going to create a result of maximum profitability. Any goal is good as done. That's not going to create that because that is just like not the programming the thoughts that you want to have in order to create those results so working with someone to help you understand that and if you don't you're doing like this all on your own really just looking at your thoughts in how they all are playing out for you allows you even if it's just the awareness piece of it that's the first step towards the transformation is is just being honest with yourself and knowing that these numbers math profit i all of it. The financials are all neutral. It's your thoughts that are that are keeping you or propelling you to make like to have the action to create the result that you desire it just goes to show how much mindset comes into it Because you look at the system and its looks pretty pretty simple but now. I'm sure it is challenging to do that. In having a coach having someone you work with two one hold you accountable to work with some of those limiting beliefs that some of those mindset issues that come up can definitely benefitting someone to do it. So we're just about out of time. Amy thank you for being on the show. You gave a lot of great information and tips on how business owners can get their finances in order.

"Is there a Percentage that someone should look at for prophets or is it based off of what type of business they have. Or how does someone kinda start that process. say right. this is how much we should start off targeting so there's a couple of ways to answer that. In profit i we consider recommended table for your real revenue. And if you noticed. I say real revenue because there is a difference between real revenue and your total revenue. And this is what i need by that with your total revenue. We can look at all the money that's coming in so we can say all the things that are coming in but then we have cogs. We have cost of good sold. You have direct support. You have subs and contractors that you have to pay for the delivery of that service. That income came in a new already have committed a portion of that to go into direct support right so then when we minus that total revenue from from from that we get a real revenue and the reason why is there is a lot of culture ethic in the business community of wanting to you know there's certain communities that are looking to create that six figure business certain communities that are looking for that half a million either the seven figures and then beyond rate that total revenue number. That's your vanity number. You can go brag to whoever that you have that but for profit. I we care about the real revenue because if you are a million dollar business but let's say that we've got a half a million dollars that are going right out the door for support like for the cost of goods sold number. Your business for prefers is a half a million dollar business and so we direct your percentages based off of that size business so it's not necessarily related to industry it's really driven by what your real revenue number is and then we have recommended. Maximum profit percentages for those real revenues. All businesses are to have variable revenue..

You're always gonna be profitable because we've taken your profit first and then whatever's left over your operating expense.

"They've worked with me for so long that i've been scaling with them the whole time so i've helped them ascend into that seven-figure business and i i know their business. I can help them with it. And then once they get to the point where they wanna build out a whole formal finance department. That's when there's a pivot but working with someone who understands the life cycle of a business and can meet you where you are and get you to where you wanna be like. That's sort of like the key. I think one way to frame with business owners is putting your books together. The best use of their time or the most cost effective use of their time or is it building the business and in most cases it's building the business say academically see the value of you know helping at those from levels whether there for you might and it's probably something that even maybe the the sales aren't there right away but their time is probably better spent trying to get more sales rather than you know worrying about putting the book together in the most efficient way and the other thing you mentioned too is setting it up and teaching them how to do it. Some of the tools that are out there have become a lot more user friendly than they were in the past. Where owners were frank scared about doing it themselves and learning this new system and i think some of the tools out there have made it easier for once that those systems are in place to to set them up into actually run them. Yeah i mean. Before i started my business i worked at major organizations building out like fifty. Seventy eighty hundred million dollar strategies right to create these financial goals and the system thing mattered. And what i realized was that if we wanted to bring in a software it was one of those things where we always saw in a sales thing. You always saw the end result rate so you saw when it was all beautiful and all.

"I don't have the time that's when you really need to start saying. I need to bring somebody in even if it's not like a long term commitment. I need to have somebody who can set the foundation for me from the financial side in. Who can teach me how to do this. So that i can at least just have the system that they have created for me and all i need to do is execute. It maintain it so then really checking in like. Where do you fall in that right. That would be step one. If you find yourself someone who just for whatever reason you're like. I'm just avoiding my numbers because i just i i have that mindset piece of it again. The awareness recognizing that that's why you're avoiding. It is going to be really helpful for you because then maybe you do need is to bring somebody on who can help you. Keep your money managed but then also has that combination of that coaching skill set. That can help you work on your mindset around money and really helped shape and elevate your relationship with money in doing that through coaching and through mindset work and i've seen different levels of of financials where like you mentioned. It could be someone that comes in sets up the books and teaches the person to do it or maybe they set up the books. Maybe they actually do it. Monthly quarterly yet at certain periods of time and they kind of spit back reports. But what's the value of doing that. But plus the coaching aspect. That virtual cfo aspect. And then. how does someone know if they're what what are those three levels and maybe they're even more levels. They are with their business and what type of engagement. They need someone for for helping with him. Yes so i think really what it boils down to is. This is the exercise that i always invite to. It's a framework that i call sustainable scaling. And if you are someone who is looking to scale and it doesn't matter where you are starting out or whatever..

So I'm sure you've heard about the payment system called Amazon, one that allows you to buy things in stores where you just wave your hand over a scanner. It's pretty simple. You hold the palm of your hand with two inches above a biometric reader. And then what's the system verifies your ID? It charges the payment card that you have on file for whatever you're buying. And so you don't have any more checkout lines being using some Amazon whole foods stores. It's expanded. But it's expanding to this. Why bring it up to you? Stadiums and arenas? That's right. Um, no more tickets to get inside concerts or sporting events. Amazon's taking over everything, aren't they? You just scan the palm of your hand. It's being used for a company called Excess in Denver, Colorado at one of the kiosk at the Red Rocks and theater. Anyone coming to an event can enroll one or both. Palms just takes a minute and then you can just scan your palm at a reader to enter. Um, the Amazon. One system could they say, create a unique pump signature? All that other stuff, But Big Tech already knows a lot about us. I know a lot of people are worried about this, but the palm print is just one more thing. You know, Palm lines tell a lot about you.

"How did money got invented so the story. Is you know before we had money. We were just sort of stuck in this unfortunate situation where we had to trade with each other all the time. This is alana. Strauss a producer at national geographic's podcast overheard so person number. One would be a butcher and they'd have meat person number two knew how to make furniture. And you know if if you were someone who had meat and you wanted a chair. But the chair maker didn't need meet at the moment. You just couldn't get a chair and who super inconvenient everyone was just like sitting around unable to get things but of course. Humans are quite inventive. We've talked about that on the show a lot so we figured out solution money so money. Is this amazing invention that comes around where you can ever has money and you can use that as a go-between. Hey i wanna chair right now. I don't have anything you want but here you go. Here's some money you can use that to eggs or whatever else you want and it'll all come around in the future great story. The problem is that it is just that a story it's not true for decades anthropologists have been studying the economic systems of different cultures through history and in nineteen eighty five dr caroline humphrey pointed out that. No one had ever actually documented an example of a pure barter economy. Nobody operates on this barter system. Like it's just not a real thing that anyone uses because leg. He said he would be so inconvenient. Like why would any like people were just like walking around like walking into walls before we came up with like modern ideas you know instead. One system that we know people operated under was a gift economy. These things might sound like the same thing right. Bartering gifting what's the difference so it gift economy is much more flexible right. First of all people aren't just like atomic thomas in a vacuum right like it's probably a friend or a family member someone in your community so when you have a relationship with besides just like this purely kind of economic ebay style thing and if if someone around you need something you're gonna wanna help them out. You know if the butcher needs a chair and you make chairs like the is probably your neighbor and like you have a bunch of chairs because you make chairs and you give them a chair and you know that your community in general is always helping you right like the woman down. The street gave eggs last week and got meat from the butcher a month ago. You probably already do this with your friends and family and community right. If somebody that you know needs something you help them out and you know that if you need something in the future. They're going to help you out.

"So can you first tell us a little bit about what citizen is and does citizen launched in two thousand sixteen. It was called vigilante at the time. Sort of sold itself as the opening up of the nine one one system. You could see what was going on around. You sold it as like you could then serve act on it. In a way that made people think they were encouraging people to be vigilantes. The name didn't help so it was banned from the app store and they relaunched as citizen in two thousand seventeen with a selling point as more of like this is just make people aware of the world around them. Basically the scrape nine one one off of like scanner information and then they visualize it so you open it and you can see where all the nine one one calls very easily on a map. Who know what they are and then people can go to the scenes or if they're already at like video photos whatever and comments and stuff like that. So it's a sort of community thing that just tells you all the batter weird emergency things that are happening in your neighborhood so we had vigilante and then that became citizen and now citizen is launching citizen protect. Tell us a little bit more about the new service. So susan protect is one of the ways that this company hopes to sorta monetize the the sa- free service that brings. It's a twenty dollars a month. Subscription service introducing citizen protect. Your protect agent is just one tap away if you enrolling it you have access to like protect agent and you can call upon that person if you need or think you might need emergency assistance. And then they can help you out. You can do that either through you know tapping the agent button on your app or you can swipe to enable something called protect mode so this actually sounds a bit like poison control. It's an someone you can call if you think you need help but don't know what you need but for twenty dollars a month i have to imagine. It's more sophisticated than that. Yeah i mean we have an app here so we're going to take advantage of all the things you can do from your phone. Technology gives you a protect mode. Which is the thing you know you swipe to enable you can either do something called distress detection which is where a i saw a person but a computer is like listening through your phones microphone for sounds of like screaming or something and then it will either ask you if you want to be connected to an agent or it will automatically connect you if you don't respond quickly enough

What Attitudes Drive Consumer Behaviors With Dr. Nick Hobson

"So what a marketers need to know about the internal states of the mind. How should we think about what is happening inside. Someone's head that ends up leading to that outcome that we're trying to drive. So if you ignore the internal processes those internal states it's more or less a guessing game you can observe and see a behavior and then try and deduce y that behavioral kurd and then sort of up nizing. Think about what you need to do to get to that ideal outcome that ideal state. But if you don't know what actually drove. It motivated the individual to that action to that behavior. It's fifty fifty. It's a guessing game at that point. So you need to understand. Basically the attitudes the feelings and beliefs the emotions of the hot part of our cognition which is automatic and then the belief is irrational or the condon's elements of our psychology. How those two things work together to result in some sort of ideal outcome and then once you know what those are then. You can intervene at the right points. Then you can dial one emotion up turn another emotion down so that it gets you where you want to the enemy speak in such generic terms because it really depends on what you're doing you're working with who your end user is etc either they might feel generic to you but from somebody that doesn't work in the field. That's interesting to me. And what. I'm hearing as their sort of this irrational portion of the brain. That probably is doing a lot of the feeling and interpreting of signals and then there is the rational part of the brain which is taking all the data and figuring out what it should be doing. I'm sure i'm not using the right psychological terms but the lizard brain and the whatever the other non lizard brain is plus academic terms are junketing and loaner foolish it anyway so i like bringing it back down to realize you're exactly right. It's sort of this rough dysfunctional system. One system to for all the dating katamon fans and thinking fast and slow fans out there who are listening. And yeah it's a very helpful. Heuristic of how we think about humans human behavior including in consumer dave contexts where we make a behavior or we engage in a behavior. I should say. And that's probably in most instances driven by this very quick automatic emotion sort of gut level. Feeling impulse symbols instinct unconscious quick reflexive so most importantly it's outside of conscious

Yeah, it'll be transcribed to, I'm thinking with this. If you have current staff, somebody always misses work. Somebody gets home. Injured or has to leave and quits. My personal opinion is if it's a computer thing, you can record screen flows, so that if you do this every time you don't have to explain it to have somebody record a video and then the first day to me, could be, you need to watch six hours of videos on how to do everything. And most of it might be simple. You know, I've got six hours, you know what I mean? You haven't, it's training and is everything. Looks back up here? I'm going to teach you a little bit, just because this is what every one of us is business owners. Do we're busy and so we can stick somebody in front of a computer to watch videos by golly, that sounds like a great job. So we need to think about it from you. Have you invested this time and energy to become an employer of choice to attract in a player to your team. And you want to create an exceptional experience for them as a team member because they are going to pass that on how you treat them, is how they are going to treat your patients. So, your job, once you have your first team member, your job longer taking care of your patience. I know that's a hard pill to swallow, know, well, all pun intended there. So when you have your first team member, your job is to take care of them and make sure that they are having a great experience. So they can take exceptional care of your patients. Think about it as as an employee coming in like what would make you feel welcome? What would make you feel really good about being there? What would have you going home at the end of the day, telling your spouse, your significant other? I love my new job. This is the coolest place ever. So think about what needs to happen. Monday, one with that team member for them to have that experience and that's what you need to deliver to them. I'm pretty sure it's not watching, six hours of video. Unfortunately, but we could say we could say that software can help in all these things that were doing. Yes, if they're not good at building, you should have software involved to make it more error-proof and all that stuff. There's so many programs out there, green screen, close and videos are great training tools and it's a great way to document your systems. We just don't want to take out the personal aspect of how we deal with our team members and make sure that they have really good attention from us throughout the onboarding process. Okay? We want to respect your time, we'll switch gears, are you ready for this? Sure, we need to talk personal just for a few minutes, you're married. Nobody wants to end up in divorce. So what can we do to keep the love alive and potentially take more vacations as well. All right, so this this is speaking to my book before we vacation it's coming out in October and I'm I firmly believe work supports life, not the other way around so we always always as entrepreneurs and business owners need to remember off. That we need to take care of our primary relationships and ourselves first. So we need to make time we need to take, we'd go on dates with our spouses, we need to have what I call a board meetings with our children, where they get dedicated, like, four hour blocks of time, there's no technology. So, phones are off. And I'm just with my kids off and it's whatever they want to do. And I have one rule in that, we're not going to go watch two movies and call it our our quality time. So there has to be interaction going on. That is how we keep them alive and our families. And we we take care of our spouses and our kids, the the the spouses and kids of entrepreneurs always are and they're both of them that expressed to me that they feel of the business. And that is a sign that the business owner is in this very dysfunctional, relationship, with the business because they're putting the business ahead of family in Spain. Says. And so we've got to reverse that and make sure that we are doing things. This is spending that quality time is the number one way to take care of those relationships. You know, I always think it's because there's not enough money off, but that's not always the case. There's a lot of people that just their vision is so big. Are they just bought into genetics baby bra? And it's like well when is enough enough? Well and not only that,.

"one system" Discussed on A Doctor's Perspective Podcast

"At the bit to come to work for you. And I was just talking with a client of mine who taught how to hire the best in the early days and he's been doing it for a number of years now, he's in the landscape industry and that industry really struggles right now with hiring. There's just not people to go to work and do the work who wants to work in the eighty, ninety degree weather every day. Exactly, right. It's a really challenging role to hire for and so he told me that in the last six months he has hired nineteen member. Using how to hire the best and he also made the point. He said, none of these individuals were unemployed at the time that I hired them, they were all working elsewhere. They knew about the opportunity that work for us. We have that reputation they wanted to come to work for us and so that is what how to hire the best is about it. Teaches you how to set yourself up to become that employer of choice that you have that. Sit on a string of applicants that is so critical in relation to profit first, because the biggest expense in a business, especially a professional service business is when a payroll, and if you have a lot of turnover in your business and you're having to hire and recruit, there's a lot of money to train all that money. Just leaks out the back door of the business and I found it really important in order to help our clients hit their target, allocation percentages of profit. First that they know how to hire and and attract and retain. A players to their team. So that's another place, where in the top of potential solution, we start with profit first, we end with hiring but it all comes together because that's, you have that sustainably profitable business, totally talking here. We're talking about like free coffee, sleeping, pods, more money or not. Ami be the best micromanager possible because that's my boss. We're going to home, you're micromanaging. And I one centimeter to do this. Now so it's not so much about just random benefits and that's what we see going on right now with covet. Businesses are just putting these crazy benefits out there. That's not worth going to attract and retain you're a player. So we want to get to know who are the right team members for you. What are they like, what is their personality? Like, what are their values? And then identify where they hang out, because a player's hang together. And so when we design the wages and salaries for your team members, and the benefits provided is all customized to the a players that you want on your team and what is important to them, so it maybe it maybe that work life, balance and autonomy and flexibility with scheduling is critically important. So you build your business in that way in my business at a potential. Our entire team is part time we work twenty five hours a week approximately dead. Like I said, bring to taken it up a notch and and the reason we do that is because we are a Professional Services business. We are all knowledge workers. We work with our brains, there's I know from coaching, there is no way to be effective as a coach. If I'm doing it forty hours a week, if I have 30 hours filled with talking with clients, can't run my business and by that thirtieth person am talking too, they're not getting the best of me in that week. And so I wanted to make sure that we as I have team members coaching, I want to make sure they're showing up at their best and so they're encouraged to have a hobbies and have a life away from work and recharge and rejuvenate so that when they're working with our clients, they're, they're bringing their best selves to the table. That's not to say they're not working forty hours a week is just, they're only doing this type of conversation, twenty five hours a week, so they're all they're all part time. I'm sometimes there's three hours a week or thirty five hours a week at some times. I've done forty hours a week or more, but for the most part we're all part time and under Thirty hours closer to 25 hours, yes, that's great. Cuz it's takes a lot to keep track of this meeting. And what is what do we talk about the last five visits that we had? And then trying to make sure everybody's on track. Well congratulations. I I was expecting a what I thought you said the opposite. Like we only put in twenty-five but you know all the behind-the-scenes is another tin. The 20. No no. And you know because and I think your listeners will really get this if we want to be at the best choice because we want to each, right? And so when we Niche we have to specialize and we do really good to provide that value that we're charging for. And so that means we need time to Thursday. We need time to attend conferences. We need time to think and develop our own thought leadership. And if we're not doing that, if that is squeezed out, we're not going to be the best choice. We're not going to be the specialist, and we will not be able to command those higher fees that come from having a specialized Niche. What do you consider on board? And employees? That kind of range has a lot, so, elaborate more on that question. So, if you have, let's just go with our basic doctor office. You've got maybe one doctor if you're lucky a second one, but really what you have or front desk maybe some trainers took uppers and they need to be on board quickly. To answer the phone correctly to not lose the call if they call, they're calling for a reason. Hopefully it's a new patient or get them scheduled collecting money rescheduling. Yes. So there's a lot of, there's a lot of hats that off desk person has to do. It's not just collect their money and then on the way they go, they might even be your billing person. So there's lots to do. What's a good ways that I'm thinking videos? Like, I've mentioned this before to someone like I. So how do you wash them quickly and get them up to speed. All right. Yeah. Where have you find works? Yeah, the first thing when I when I teach how to hard the best I I say we want to start with a clearly defined role that you're hiring for and you want to hire suck. He has the personality strengths to achieve the results that you want out of that role. So you have someone at the front desk, I want you to think through, if they can only get one thing done for you off, in a given day or given week, what is that one thing going to be? Is it going to be scheduling? Is it going to be billing? Is it going to be Collections? And cuz it can't be all things because you'll never hire somebody who has strengthened all those areas. So somebody who is great with talking to your patients, cajoling them, encouraging them, to keep their appointments with you because, you know, of no shows are very costly. And so that kind of person is a different personality than somebody who's going to be very detail-oriented and great with keeping books and payment collection. So, you need to be really clear. Now, it doesn't mean that somebody can't collect payment at the front desk, but you got to be really fair, like, what's the most important part of this role? And, in my experience, the most important role That well, was keeping your calendar booked. So, if there's cancellations, they get somebody else in that spot and keep the day going. And so that's gonna be somebody who is great with people who has a great attention to detail cuz they will keep in mind who are the people that we can call that, you know, are on the waiting list, who want.

"Places where there's money tucked away. I can remember, in college people saying they have a hundred bucks left in their account, you know, when you're that poor, you know what I mean? Yeah, I just like an dog. Had a limit where I wouldn't go lower than that, if I had less than this. I was like, nope. Nope, can't do anything. I'm poor now. Yes, cuz I can't imagine having like 25 bucks less than the count. A hundred bucks left an account. And if you think about a business that could be like five grand, if I'm not even cover rent and for some people. Well and it's this is becomes really important because the more money we have tucked away in these accounts in our business, the more leverage, we have with credit card companies and the banks. And so we want to cash is King in businesses. So we always want to have cash at our disposal. So we are able to go to the bank and say I want to have a $200,000 line of credit. Well, they're going to look at. Well, what resources? Do you have, what assets do you have to justify that? And so, it doesn't mean that we're going to use $200,000 on the line of credit cuz that's not wise necessarily especially if it's just covering operating expenses. If it's a reinvestment in the like a piece of equipment or it's profitable that meant be a good use of it, but birth. Has encoded. We saw people get strapped for cash and businesses, you know, if you're waiting on relief from the government and the government is slow, there's administrative errors or whatever you need, cash cushion some wage. If you're running out of it in the business, but some business owners have been dealing with this now for fourteen or fifteen months and struggling. So if you're starting to run out you want to have like a line of credit, you want to be able to go to the credit card company and say something like I need to extend the bat. I need a higher balance that I can carry. They will do that because you have this money tucked away in different places in the business and you have the assets to justify, it should say that these big Banks actually were doing. I don't know. We own color fraud, but definitely some shady business cuz it sounded like one point. Big businesses were taken the money for covid-19. Needed. There was an expose on it. I don't think they call it everybody though. I'm more concerned about those big Banks doing that makes me angry. Cuz yeah, the little man like me are the ones that are holding the bag wondering. Why one of these chain restaurants are having problems. Like you guys are still open. You get delivery and I can't crack backs over the phone. Now, we've all had the pivot though. We we had to switch and go to Virtual Office where mask and just find a way to make it work. This is something interested. I I follow different people who have certifications for this marketing or for this type of thing and I don't know sometimes it feels like it's a fad and off profit first. It was popular for a while but then, you know, it's been a while. It's been a while, unless you're really into it that people don't talk about it as much, but do you find that certified guides at this point, or being seeked out for this method or what's your view on this? So it's interesting to me with a podcast profit by Design. We have had, we always bring guests on that will serve our dog. So because we have a lot of business owners will bring on guests who are tax tax professionals or accounting professionals, or bookkeeping professionals. And we've had guests on Earth who are not profit first certified, but because we're the profit by Design podcast and because we are Mastery level certified and profit first our audience assumes that the guest who comes on page book keeper must be profit per certified. So they've gone to work with them and been sorely. Disappointed in the guidance that they received on the implementation of profit per say that professional provided good guidance, on other things that they needed in their area of expertise, but there was an assumption made that they could do profit first, without being certified profit. First provides ongoing education for us profit first professionals a.m. and we have a community. When we have a tough situation for a client that we don't, we can't figure out or we need some help solving we have an entire community of profit first professionals and like access to my dog. All with himself so that that resource does not exist for someone who's not. Certified is so I I would be. When someone gets certified in a program. It means they've met certain criteria. They're reliable. You should be able to count on them and not everybody who is certified is going to be reliable and you can count on because some people do slip through but profit. First puts a lot of criteria in place, they vet their profit first professionals. So I do think a spiritual was still an active organization and with oh yeah, growing and everything. Okay? Is growing and the percentage of entrepreneurs who are in poverty, who are paycheck to paycheck, goes down every year because of profit first, like, it's a movement, it has made a difference in what the experience of being an entrepreneur is. Yeah, okay, so that's good. So you can find accountants and tax people as well as quote like yourself business coaches, that all are under song, What you're doing, what you're trying to do. Oh yeah. And that makes such a difference because you can find some people that are just Shady. Yeah, no. Let you burn with that shadiness and then, you got others that are too strict. He can we just do this and you're like no, no, no, I'm not the right person. Well, it's good to know that there's guidance out there. Absolutely. And a note about the strict implementers of a program. One of the things that I think is important is to protect us as profit first professionals that we're providing guidance and best practices to our clients and also able to Pivot with them and adapt profit first to their unique situation in their business. So it doesn't do any good for us to say, this is how it's done. This is the hard core way. You've got to do it this way because every business is different. And that's what you when you hire a professional. That's really what you're getting some wage customize it for you. So someone like brings what kind of what I'm more familiar with with storybrand and Donald Miller and his, you know, business Made Simple situation. You know, they got coaches that can come in along and as always looking at Dez, like, that's pretty cool. You know, you gotta a whole year worth of stuff, probably for like, $10,000 to become a coach, but anyway, when you're doing the marketing part, they happy with our specialized. Yes, construction Healthcare et cetera. So, is that set up where if you go into like profit first, or whatever their site is to find a guide, can you find someone that's already Niche down into Healthcare? Absolutely, you can. Okay. Perfect. Okay, good, good. So now they know you know what the webpage for that is to go direct I believe it's profit first professionals. Okay, so let's switch because you also have, like I said, three or four books, you've got a new one coming out real soon. How to hire the best? Yes, if you want to, you can give us the, the high view of what it is. But I'm curious on a couple of key notes that I've I've looked out. So you want to give us the the synopsis first. So how to her the best is written for entrepreneurs and small-business owners who need to have a players on your team? And you feel like you can't compete with larger companies and the salaries and wages that are offered. And and you feel like, well, I'm kind of stuck with what I can get a job hiring, hiring, is one of the greatest challenges in small business. And when I wrote the first, how to hire the best, I wrote the rural Edition cuz I was in a rural area and I had clients who worked Physical Therapy chiropractors and they were struggling with hiring. And one of the, in the rural addition, I share the story of Jeff mcmenemy, who has a physical therapy occupational, therapy multiple locations. And throughout Wyoming and if you you know anything about Wyoming. That's already rural. It's rural. There's more Antelope than people and so recruiting PhD level. Physical therapist to a rural area, too huge challenge. Jeff is totally mastered this and he uses the how to hire the best system. He set himself up to be an employer of choice and that's really what, how to her the bath is about. It's how do you become that employer of choice, so that you have a steady stream of applicants chomping.

"55% operating expenses, depending on revenue and Monday. We, we really want to as you alluded to. We want to make sure that the margins are there, so that you're collecting enough to begin with for you to be able to pay yourself appropriately through Thursday. Pay and profit in the business. One of the things that I notice in terms of when people are first introduced to profit first, and they start implementing it. One of the mistakes that I see is, we decide, oh, profit off is all about cutting expenses, and it absolutely is. Most of us have expenses that can be cut in our business. And at a certain point, you can only cut so much. And then you're looking at letting go of old members, you're looking at letting go of critical marketing that you need. And so then it becomes a question of how do we add value in the delivery of our service jobs so that we can charge more and at my business tap, the potential. We've developed the top of potential solution and the top potential solution is the guaranteed money to designing a sustainably profitable business. That gives you more money in your bank account than ever and more time for what matters. Most so profit first is the very birth First step in the top, the potential solution, but if you stop there, most business owners never hit the full Target, allocation percentages for profit and owners pay off. If they don't move into identifying a clear sweet spot for the business in a niche cuz the riches are in the niches and took a clear, sweet spot. You can figure out how to innovate and add value and make yourself really stand out and be different. And I've was very first profit, first month's special. I came on board, I implemented profit first in my business and I struggled to hit those Target allocation percentages. And it was only through pumpkin planning in my business. And pumpkin pie is also one of my McAlister's books, it was only through that process that I was able to hit those Target allocation percentages. And we see that with our clients that it's not enough to just cut expenses off. We also need to move to the other side of the equation and look at how are we going to be different? How do we add value? And we're definitely, I was going to let the audience know what we're going to cover some of those particular about yourself later, the timer potential and about the books for sure. Cuz I think like you said like you just said it all ties in. And when you were talking earlier an owner salary, at one point might be the 25%. But if you make enough money eventually, it's going to get lower and so maybe you just want to pay yourself. I don't know. Seventy-five thousand a year, but as your business gets bigger, it becomes a smaller and smaller percentage but the prophet becomes a dividend and if you have your business set up, correct? Yes you get text list on that extra money. So you still might make the 150 to 250 to 300. It's just that it's paid out differently, right? Right. So it's not that you are going to take home less off of the business yourself. And I can't emphasize that enough that we as owners need to be appropriately. Compensated for not just the work we do in the business but also the entrepreneurial risk that we ve So owners pay is about the work. You do in the business as it as a team member profit, is your compensation for the entrepreneurial risk that you bears. And so as the business Revenue grows, you're working less in the business. So you get compensated less through owners pay and more through profit, okay? But because it's a perfect system and because the revenue is growing as the revenue grows, you get to take more and more out of business as the owner. Yeah, it's quite nice but you see the 20 is now eight years? Yeah. So they say it's natural to put all your profits back into your business like you're planting seeds for growth, but sometimes that actually just shows a future disaster. Can you elaborate on that page? Gosh. Yeah, I've been there and done that. Yeah, we have this idea that every we need to reinvest every penny that comes into the business because we're going to grow the revenue of the business. Well what they don't teach us is that typically expenses back up before growth happened and so profit. First really reverses that mentality and says no. No you you keep your, you pull your profit out and you don't reinvest all of it in the business. You keep that aside. Some of it can be reinvested but you want to make thoughtful choices about that and you want. So you don't want to make. If you take money out of profit to cover, payroll, you're not reinvesting in the business, you're covering expenses. That's not growing the business, but let's say you have an opportunity to purchase a new piece of equipment. And this piece of equipment, is something that adds value to your patience. And the beautiful thing about this is they can utilize this equipment without your help or without a team member, they can just, you know, go in and use this piece of equipment and now you've Have something in your office that's generating Revenue, you're not working, that's a beautiful thing. And so it would make sense to take money out of the Prophet account to cover that piece of equipment became one. You're not taking it alone, you're not in Acura accruing, interest or accumulating interest cuz you're not on a payment plan with a company. And and so you take the money out of profit account. And because that's a really invest money in the business is going to immediately in that next month, as you start telling your patience about it, it's going to create Revenue coming in that you didn't have in the previous month. Where is rainy day yet? Rainy day. Yeah, like the rainy day money where I found that broke down. Hey, it's so the first place rainy day comes in is in the process of account. Let's have a cold it. We had a lot of our clients doing profit off and Covetous it all other business owners across the country are freaking out because there's no, there's no rainy. Day funds are clients who have implemented profit. First had their profit account and they were in come home. Situations with us. And a lot of them said, you know, I have six months worth of operating expenses built up in my profit account or three months, or even two months, there were, there were cushions there and that alleviated, a lot of stress over time. You want to move from having the money in the profit account to what we call. The Vault, where it's just, you know, when our school, you get a large amount of money in that profit account. You want to move it over to the Vault and that's their choice of rainy day fund, okay? Cuz that's a scary thing. I mean, sometimes you never profitable enough for whatever reason to have a rainy day fund, but then you still have to like there's still a need to find a way to save two or three jobs cuz eventually that'll add open me that adds up if that's all you can do. But well and I'll give you another little insiders Tip, Tap the potential and a lot of our clients who do profit first through tap, the potential have funds also built up in their owners pay account. So they have money that they are not taking out his drawers and it's just building up. I have always had a like a a bottom line that I don't take off. Diplo this amount in the owners pay account, will take drawers to this this point. And so that has allowed me six months worth of cushion to pay myself. So not only did I have an operating expenses covered in the business for multiple months. I also had in my owners pay six months worth of cushion, talk about peace of mind as we went through covid-19. So, yeah, it private first is kind of like our grandparents in the who went through the depression, who would stuff money under their bed, under their mattresses and all over the house to have these rainy day funds cuz they saw the banks crash them and the whole banking system imploded. And so they had this money tucked away in their house. Well profit first is about having money tucked away in these different accounts that allows us to get through. So it's just one rainy day fund. There's multiple.

Again, you can pick up his book, all about creating a dental practice, which a lot of the information here can be used for other types of doctors offices because there's so much knowledge from a lifetime of building practices.

I'm excited to be here and anytime I get the opportunity to log. About profit. First, I am all in. And so you have an audience of doctors chiropractors, physical therapists. And if I, I think of a group that really needs to hear the prophet person messaging, it's, it's these individuals because there's so much pressure on the businesses in the squeeze from insurance, and the need to be efficient and it makes it very hard to be profitable and someone will do have a c. I wrote it down sales minus expenses equals profit and that tends to be so many people staying. So when you switch it, I always liked that idea. Like we have sales, we have profit off of taxes, we have a basic salary for myself and then what's left is okay expenses. Because you can always spend more money or more advertising. Overall, let's get shirts for the patience. For referral wage is always a way to spend money and then you end up always mad cuz you don't get paid. Yeah. If we treat profit like a leftover, we're never going to have problems because there's always other things we could spend the money on in the business world. And so profit first is all about let's put the entrepreneur, the business owner. First we have to put our oxygen masks on before we can take care of our clients and page. So this is really about self-care for entrepreneurs and making sure that we are not. The ones losing sleep at night, because we can't cover our own personal expenses and payroll. And this is all about, let's do it first. So I'll give you Justin's cliff notes, and then you can correct me or really been you doing it for so long and you say no no, that's a great Mile, High View but now we can get granular and these are the easy wins. These are the breaks typically fail. So here's what I'm thinking, you got your for bank accounts, maybe five, you got taxes, expenses, profit, the owner salary and then operating expenses, then you got the percentages can be anywhere from 15% for taxes. May be anywhere from 1% up to 15% for profit. Your salary. Could be 25% and your expenses, I guess, 45% or so. And then a call log. Of this profit in the account, you think, fifty percent of that and then you kind of do whatever you want with it. At that point, how does that sound so far? That's right on you just keep going. You got it. Okay, so that's a great deal of you have a nice day off. All right. Here's kind of my question. Then you might be new in business, or maybe they've been the three years, but how do you know what a what you should pay for yourself? But then expensive cuz sometimes you have a business that runs sixty or seventy percent and maybe that's just because you don't collect enough money to begin with so like your new and business so you're not really sure what what is an appropriate profit vs. Expenses versus everything or how much should go to marketing. You have any advice on any of that type of stuff cuz that part can be tricky. Yeah, so I think a good rule of thumb is that we really want our experience has to be anywhere from about 45 to 55% of the business. And the reason I'm giving a range is because it really depends on the total. The revenue size of the big dog, So one of the things that's interesting is as the revenue in the business, grows the percentage for owners pay decreases and the percentage for profit increases after that happens. Because as the business Revenue grows in order for that to be happening, the owner needs to be working less and less in the business and relying more on the team to accomplish things for the life us to be scalable. And so at that point the owner is being compensated via profit. So it doesn't mean that the money that the business owner takes out of the business is any less is just coming from a different place in the business office from profit rather than owners pay? So, you know, A good rule of thumb is a healthy business, is going to be 35 to 45, sometimes.

"It has a message board. It has to do it. Has group chad. It has scheduled documents and files literally. If you're looking for e a cool pretty looking system that is nicely organized can do everything on you just want one system and you can do everything in that system. I would suggest based 'cause it's easy to do. Everything has really good mobile app as well on on ipad iphone android. All of that. And it's it's not it's not it's not super expensive. He actually took all the costs of all of that system. That's actually not expensive but everything the one place. So if i were to do all over i would use basecamp cool good helpful anything that anything that worked overall at you like that makes sense this question on here does it have crm. By the way. I will tell you this. Crm crm crm. If you want a crm right you should by sierra. You should not by email management system that looks like a crm. you should not by a marketing system. That feels like a crm if you want to see if you're in the sales business if anyone of yours in the sales business you need a crm managing clients and contacts and you need to manage a cr and you need to manage those flights in context in some way. You need to work the pipeline. A work deals. Or whatever you need. And i'll get it that in a second but do not try. That is one tool that will not try to combine. Because i see a lot of people combining like a messaging tool with a vile tool with random to do list with the crm. Till i feel running sales business you should. You should run a sierra. You go get a crm. And i can give you the stuff that we actually work on. If that'll be a helpful all right. Let's jack we'll give you a few more things you cool. Let's talk about files. So one of the ways were most teams breakdown is they. Don't know where to put files right. And i'll tell you what we do. In fact it's kinda weird. We use google drive. We use dropbox you want. And there's another file system box. I have not used anything else A pardon me. That's my that's the level of my knowledge but we use google drive dropbox and i'll tell you up nuance around us..

Supercomputing: An exascale-sized challenge?

"Terms of supercomputing and high performance computing or. Hp see are one and the same but you hear hp being used more moldy days. There's a growing cool for the democratisation of supercomputers which historically has been tricky because supercomputers weren't really created just to do any old bit of computing. His jacob bama hp and engineering research scientists from hewlett packard enterprise the for supercomputers were invented to solve a very specific problem a hydrodynamics problem for simulating nuclear weapons. So during world war two there were there. Were trying to develop these nuclear weapons they had to do. What's called a numerical simulation. It's essentially a fluid dynamic simulation and so they needed to run that problem numerically through a computer and that's kind of alan turing and john. Von layman come came up with the architecture in sort of the algorithm for running numerical methods on these systems supercomputers have come a long way in a relatively short amount of time thanks to innovation in materials experimental architectures industry pioneers like seymour cray and ever increasing processing speeds but for the most part until very recently these machines have been the domain of scientists the prospects of solving some of the really hard problems that have plagued humanity forever. That's like in our sights now like we could like feasibly solve problems like cancer and all these crazy permutations on corona virus. And and any of these like really scary viruses. That are gonna come out okay listeners. So this is one of those that starts normal and gets a little complicated. I'm going to get a little bit. But i i really wants to get to the bottom of these powerful machines and i wanted to understand what makes a sweeping meters so well super so i could up bill. Manel vice president and general manager of high performance computing hewlett packard and surprise. A super computer is a lot of processors memory and a high speed interconnect time together. Supercomputing provides the the hardware infrastructure if you will to do parallel computing. Parallel computing is important. Because typically in a problem you'd wanna break up the problem across multiple processors or or multiple servers or nodes typically. What you do is break up. The data that's called data partitioning where little chunks are putting in each server on each processor and then worked on independently and then at the end. You bring it all together. This parallel computing is kind of a big deal. It's what makes sense a numeric. Who problems i deal for. Cb computers on what makes them special or different to the the santa my desk. It's mostly because they're optimized around solving scientific and engineering problems in terms of how they can partition data. How they can manipulate the data. How they can keep a certain amount of data in memory at one time. So you're not always moving data back and forth to drive or to network for example. Okay key point. Here is all about data. Starting from those initial fluid dynamics simulation these big machines have been used for all kinds of modeling from whether to weapons alongside their partners. Intel bill and his team are in the process of deploying a supercomputer could aurora one of the world's first x. scale computers at the us department of energy. What's exco well to answer that. I need to know that supercomputer speed is measured in floating point operations per second aka flops which are basically just the number of calculations it can do a second exit scale computers computer. That's able to do at least a billion billion floating point calculations per second so there's no single chip in the world. That can do that. So you've gotta bring together a lot of chips into one system that allow you to accomplish that. It's basically tend to the eighteenth. In terms of number of floating point operations.

"one system" Discussed on On The Table Gaming

"Kind of mean for the game or for how stark but then also for maybe all the dire wolves that are in the game and how they kind of fit into the twenty twenty one system. Also the initial design of starts know wolves where supplemental piece that were to be brought along for free with their Their point cost built into their attachments. And that was their initial role was like a supplemental apiece. Not factor when taking a look at the time of the releases the faction identity kind began revolving around them young for better for worse. That's what people associated with stark's is like. Oh they can take dire wolves so what you had was. Initially a thing that was supposed to be a cool supplemental thing for taking character became one of the focuses of the fashion as the meta and the game volved dire wolves filled into the role here with a cheap free free and giant air quotes activation and had a bunch of impacts. That were not really original. Like design idea because people use them as a free activation Objectives when they're really meant to be more of a support piece and that was not really the direction we want them to take. I don't actually have a problem with people playing them like that. It's just for the utility that they were bringing to the army versus their point costs. That was unintended side effects. So when we're looking at redoing things in balancing exactly twenty twenty one. We had a couple of directions that we could have taken with the dire wolves. One direction would have been to make them. Something a attends of the skin changer. There's with free folk where they are supplemental. Teas that has built that. Unit's they don't provide the extra activation they can't really after thomas lee and they're tied to the character that they are linked to that would have been the potential mechanical solution that would them into one category. But the thing is that doesn't really flavorful. Fit with how the rules activate. Because when they're on the battlefield they're not linked to their companion in the same way that like a stint change of was bears gonna take to the ballot because changes possessing. Ira wolf is on the battlefield. Doing its own thing and actually in most of the books and everything. The wolves are doing their own things. When they're on the battlefield. Quinn gray wind is out. There or ghost is out there yet. They're kind of hanging around their owners but they're kind of off just doing their own thing you know. There's not a lot of focus on like the perspectives for everything. So we decided in this situation instead of push them in that direction where there so linked to their owner we push them in the other direction to make the more autonomous either own thing and again this is going on the fact that as the factions like the game is developed. People like viewing them like this is a stark thing. This is a thing they have access to. So turning them in more into more of a supplemental role would have reduced which technically could've worked just fine and active in a direction to but i feel that the community that plays stark's like star walls. They liked the idea of these wolves being a centerpiece of the army. Which again i will fully admit was not one of the initial directions that they were intended to take their Always binchy supplemental pieces. But the fact that when the game comes out in the la evolves way did. What we initially wanted is not necessarily what happened like in the case here. People view dire. Wolves is like a core feature of the army so instead of restricting that back we just expanded on that and change their role here so now you have a unit that can act..

"Can you give a bit of an overview about what you're building at equal am and how it got started and you mentioned that you've been there for a few years so maybe a bit of how you got involved with the business as well case old building a platform for data ingestion physically. Etl system with the goal of providing open source benefits to the enterprise domain. I'm sure that everybody who's tried to use soles in the enterprise and found on the difficulties in how chips around implementing it. And we're trying to bridge the gap and get the best out of Into enterprise ready application product. So that's foiled goals as for myself. I've been working for about three years. Almost as implem-. I'm started out a halfway william equal actually started with that goal but had quite a few steps around it. We started with a very simple system and ended up with a full stack of spa kafka and all the jason competence and a food system so solid very simple the overall space of data integration and. Etl has become relatively crowded in the market. And they're a number of different approaches where some people are advocating for e. l. t. Where you just do extract and load and using something like maybe five tran or the singer set of tools or some people are focused on batch oriented workflows using more traditional et l. approaches and. I'm wondering if you could give a bit of context as to how equal and fits in that overall market and some of the differentiating factors that engineers should consider when they're debating what tools to use. What approach to take the main differentiator for us is a customer that once a system that is mature and a lot of indications of open source products and open source. Capabilities are still in the making and still growing as you grow with them. And we'll aiming at providing the whole system and to end to someone who wants etl rather than a lot of moving parts thing. That's the main thing we don't want to provide yet another software that relies on five to ten different vendors so for example if you're doing streaming you might implement calf and you might need zookeeper and you might monitor it and i'm sure that everybody who's done that. Seen model confidence that you end up with. And i would say that when you start with a data engineering project usually end with. They'd engineering plus a whole division of devops. You want to end that mess and provide one product with one vendor gives you the whole thing end to end everything and relevant to the use case rather than to the in terms of the overall ecosystem of data you mentioned wanting to be able to the benefits of open source to the enterprise. And i'm wondering for people who already have started down. The journey of building out a data platform they might have some capacity for data integration in place what are the components of the overall ecosystem that equal is designed to replace outright and which are the ones that it is designed to integrate with augment. Let's stop replace serves as an ingestion system so the workplace depends on what you're doing. I can certainly give you. Examples from implementations we have replaced system using open source spent the whole on top of our and a lot of station around building the flow in bento executing the flows in monitoring and getting everything working together. We have replaced the whole thing with just one system and again one vendor for the whole thing not mingling too many companies and getting them to work so i would say for that use case the replacement would be for the end to end system so it depends on the use case itself but we are aiming to replace the whole integration and to and from source to target to get data transformed in reached and managed to the level of. I read it from the source whether it is a string soul veg souls luck as three or even see souls and writing. It's to whatever they might be snowflake for data warehousing data lakes so it is an end to end solution that is aimed at providing the full stack that you require full. Data integration

A first look at the Xbox Series S and Series X

"There's so much to look forward to because again november tenth. We've got the xbox series s at xbox series x coming out plus playstation five. Comes out just two days later. So i want to hear your thoughts as were on the verge of this console generation. Who has the early lead on this. Because as you know a lot momentum usually helps the situation with playstation four. He was that e three showcase where they showed the simple fact of to the executives that worked for playstation giving a disc to each other to represent the fact that you could go ahead and share your games from one system to another which xbox was threatening the new. Couldn't do at the time which basically for me set xbox back at least a couple years in my opinion is far saleswise so want to hear your thoughts heading into this console generation. Where do you think has the early advantage. Well i started with playstation with the playstation one and two and when the three sixty came out we all know that came up before the ps three. So i jumped ship in a hannah been more of an xbox game or this whole time since playstation four. Lert for that and came out actually. I was at a week earlier than xbox one if i. Yeah yeah pretty pretty close and you know when you're on a winning you're on a platform it's really hard to shift especially when you have all your games there and whatnot so yeah i remember that time when next spot stated that they were gonna lock the game to your count so you wouldn't be able to basically sell your game aftermarket man. That was a big thing. I almost jumped ship there. But i stayed packed and i'm actually pretty excited for where they're headed. I'm excited for it to side for consoles coming out. Obviously a lot of good word for both. I think right now of the two as i come in to it. I'm kind of thinking that box with the major purchase of the bethesda studios that has to be sort of like a little bit of a step in the right direction. They're they're understanding their mistakes from the past and leading into this generation even though they have launched games and we'll go into launch games or lack thereof here in a minute. But i think the purchase of the festa shows that. It's very set for the future going forward. Yeah i think they can match. They can compete with the exclusives now. At least that was the one thing that was missing this whole time. You know watching. Ps players have all these exclusive games. It really hurt me inside not being able to play spiderman on an xbox so i'm definitely excited where they're going with everything absolutely you. The miles morales spiderman game coming in away to playstation five. So that's definitely something. I think is probably going to be a little bit disappointed to you. If you go for xbox i isn't it. Yeah well unfortunately. I was unable to preorder either one so in. I just found out that you can't go to the store. So i'm gonna try to at least for the playstation anyway. You can't buy it at the store launch day. You have to have preorder or you gotta try to buy it online. They're not doing any Store sales because of the preorder snafus from both companies and both companies are guilty of this. It's created quite a problem. And i understand that. There's a shortage in production due to what's gone on twenty twenty and i i get that but still to not provide consumers with the ability to go ahead and purchase a day one and go to the stores to do that. I think that's also a step in the wrong direction. I i definitely agree with that. So you said you're leaning towards this time around is that correct. Yep it's really hard. I mean i got two hundred games on my portfolio there to leave those behind especially when you literally get all those games on the new console joe right off the day one. So if i were to go to playstation. I'd have to start from scratch. And i wouldn't have anything and many of them will load faster on the ssd drive and some of the may even have resolution bump ups that will be free of charge for those games. So that's very attractive for anyone who's getting a playstation five or in your case and xbox series eventually when you can get your hands on one yeah. I mean with the playstation. I've always used it as like an exclusive machine and i play most of my gaming on the xbox kinda similar with the nintendo switch. I play all the exclusives on there. And i use the xbox for anything that comes out multi-platform when it comes to the game launch. Lineups you and. I know that we've seen the past with these consoles. The launch lineups for the most part people just pick them apart and sometimes in some cases deservedly so in this case when it comes to both the playstation xbox playstation has a little bit of offerings when it comes to exclusive launch games. Xbox really doesn't have that much. And i think if you're buying an xbox right now an xbox series s or an xbox series x really going off a lot on

A Conversation With Kristina Azarenko

"Joining me this week to get her take on the Digital News Christina as rain. Co Founder Marketing Syrup. Christina how're you doing today? I'm GonNa Thank you and I'm really surprised that I'm on three hundred and seventy four. Fourth August. And we've been doing that for quite a while. Yeah for a couple of weeks. We've got started around the beginning of October. Anyway Yeah we've been doing this for nine years. So have you worked out what that episode is going to be. Now nothing whatsoever no. He just tickets you doesn't even weigh in on that. I know I have no idea. Episode number that'll be. Over four hundred. That's a safe bet. No. It's not well depending on how we're recording now. Yeah. We'll see we'll probably GONNA be doubling up on this. Yeah. Yeah absolutely. So just for our listeners, we are actually changing up our formed a little bit. We're actually giving you more than nugget is interviews. So we have a part one and part two with Christina, as well as the news. So we're going to give you some commute time podcasting as opposed to the long form. How in the world could I ask you to listen to a full hour of me ranting. Do it every day. Yes you do they. Wait a minute wait. No. Now, you're right. So I should just subject to all the audience for that right all right. Well. We got first article that we want to go over with you. Christina. So there are first article from search engine journal by Roger. Monte. We always love what he's doing over there at search engine journal Google answers if site sections, parts of the site can actually impact the overall ranking score of the entire site. So the question was by publisher that has a forum on their side that has a poor core vital score while the rest of the site enjoy higher core web. Performance very well, you can have two different platforms installed on the same host environment. Obviously. So what core web vitals are, it's a, it's a group of speed and user experience metric rolled out. Much before they actually showed up in Google search console but those that they together show a web page what page actually presents and with a poor user experience in or gives visitors an ideal web browsing experience. So his answer was well the question first and foremost was we have a large site and a section on the then we have a forum there at this forum is an old cms and is difficult to. Optimize for speed we're looking to make sure that we have a good core web vital score before twenty twenty one able to improve the speed of the forum. This will this only affect the keywords that that ranked for the foreign pages or will it affect the ranks of the pages aren't on the forum that are actually faster? So John's response real quick and I'll get Christina's take is so in general are algorithms. Tried to be as fine grain as possible. So if we can't get granular information from your site and recognize the individual parts of the website property, then we'll try to do that. So, he actually shared how chrome aggregate Corwin vile scores you share it in a bit of a caveat of that However, it does actually depend a little bit on your site and how much data we have for your site especially when it comes to speed. So there is a new chrome aggregate score that as people who use the Google chrome browser go to that website they're actually pulling that data directly from those experiences like a core sampling. No Pun intended of users that are interacting with a website Christina, what are your thoughts about Corwin vitals and on top of that different cms on one system and how could it could play into ranking? Yeah good question. So well, first of all again, this is not live yet. So all my thoughts are not, they don have the real experience on because. This report is not is not live as now. I mean it's live on Google by that we how Google is going into interpreted and have everything and aggregated is not live yet what I think in January when I think about vitals when I think about speed first of all, think not about Seo which view it because I'm an SEO. It's not done for Seo percent is done for users. I I would think that for this particular about site if you upset is amazing create but forum is really hard to read and hard to reach from a mobile phone. Maybe you should think about migrating it to changing something not for the sake of being compliant with corporate wide else but just for the sake of users. Coming to you and having really good time when you are for right that is the man, the main point. So I like that Google is pushing it over time. It has been pushing mobile I mode mogul I indexing a long time and I know that maybe. They just phone start thinking about something. She's good for us mixture and unless Google pushes down so it's It's a good thing to do. But again, I would think about your users I and if aunt in this particular case. If this guy is asking fashion, he knows that he's forum is really. Slow, I will change it. You can agree to something else in January having different content management systems is okay. You can have a store in show defy and your blog on wordpress. It doesn't necessarily mean that if you using multiple content management systems, your website is going to be slow. Its cage us down four different kinds of content you
