"Down, we all need to show more. Finally, I wanted to find out how Paco works out what is enough for her. Is it a feeling? Is it a number? What factors go into knowing you have or are working toward enough? Sometimes I'm really triggered when I hear other people talking about their enough because honestly, I feel like the folks that I've seen talking about them being like, this is enough. I run a firm and I make all this money and this is enough. So far I've only seen like cis, gendered straight, white dudes talk about it. I'm trying to think maybe am I being biased here, but no, I haven't really heard of another I haven't heard of like, you know, a bipoc person being like, you know what? I finally reached enough. So I think it's tricky. I think that personal finance is a very personal thing. It is definitely a lifestyle thing. I live in Los Angeles. That is, I mean, most major cities are not cheap. I remember right after I got vaccinated and I started going out. I remember going to a cafe and having not been to a cafe I ordered a smoothie and then the man said $15 and I was like, wow. Los Angeles. I love you, but okay, you're doing me dirty, but okay, cool, living wage, you know? That's just what it would be what it be. So it is lifestyle. I live in Los Angeles, my wife is an interior designer, and she also does events. And so we have to be in a place where that service that she provides, which is a luxury service. She can sell it, right? The demand has to be there. So for my lifestyle, I see us always probably living in a major city. Also, the option to retire is cool. That would be cool. I would love to retire. Also, the option to buy a house would be cool. And I mean, if you are alive and looking at things, you'll know that the price of houses just keeps going up and every time I think, oh, we're almost there. It just goes out of reach. So that's kind of something that we're constantly chasing and trying to keep up with. And we want to participate in that. For me, I do have a number. I would. So here's how I think about this. Breast tax. For every $1 million that you have invested, you can reasonably expect to take 4% and you can live on it. So that's $40,000. So if you're spending $40,000 today and you think, okay, for the next, I don't know, ten, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 years, $40,000 is all I'm going to need, which maybe for the next few years, that's true, but we've understand how inflation works. That might not be true. So that's kind of the baseline operating. If you want to live off of 40 grand a year, you need at least a $1 million. So, you know, my number is in the multiple millions. I am trying to pass multiple millions of dollars of wealth so that I can one day retire or own a piece of property probably both of those things. And not have to eat cat food. The other factor that's really fascinating for same sex couples is if we ever want to have a child, we would have to acquire one in some fashion. I know that sounds gnarly. I do say it because it gets laughs, and I'm not above getting laughs. It's just not as straightforward for same sex couples. So, you know, I don't know if we're going to have children if we had like a giant pile of cash that we could use to acquire said child. Not like on the black market. I mean, adoption feeds or whatever. There's like science involved and you have to pay doctors and stuff. You know what I mean? Clearly, I've done a lot of research. I would love that option. You know, and I would love to approach that option from a space of freedom, not like, oh no, this is going to be one of the biggest decisions of my life. Cool. Let's let the finances drive. One person's enough, let's take this surfer archetype, right? That person's enough is maybe living in a van, half of the year and driving up the coast and having access to waves and not spending very much. Cooking on a little stove top, another person's enough is having 5 kids in a house that can have 5 kids having enough to feed them and to maybe even create generational wealth. Everybody's enough is really different. And that's why it's so important to me to encourage and inspire people to stop and ponder that. What is enough for you? And when you think you don't have enough, one is it real, and two, if you feel like you don't have enough and you are working towards having enough, what does that look like and what is your number? I think the trick there is for a lot of us that number is going to move. That's the real trick is when you keep chasing it. Is it real or are you trying to fill a hole within you? I often feel like I don't have enough or since I have trauma with finances, there will be moments where I'm like, oh no. I don't have enough or I'm not reaching my income goal or whatever the story is. And I would say 99.9% of the time I'm safe, I have a roof over my head. I have food in my belly. I have cash in the bank, and so when you have that moment because we all have it, where we're like, look, am I doing enough? Do I have enough? Just stop. And I'm hopefully you're safe and take a deep breath, and if you are safe just tell yourself that you're safe right now, and I know it sounds corny and like, no, it's not going to work, Paco. Try it. Just try it, and if it works, go with it, and if it doesn't, well, you gave it your you gave it a good college try and you can find another tool like that. To me, money is freedom, and it's power, and it allows me to live a life of dignity. And that's really what I want people, like the folks who are so out of touch, that's what I'm trying to get. The message I'm trying to get out there is we need a basic income because people just need to live dignified lives. We need healthcare because people just need to live dignified lives. We need access to education because it's just at the end of the day about dignity. Let's just solve that problem first. And then luxury will follow. I've been rolling that idea of dignity around in my mind since I talked to Paco. Who is denied dignity? What are the mechanisms that enforce that denial? And what does a dignified life look like and how much does it cost? Paco does a great job of addressing the things we can control about money. And she also does a great job acknowledging that there is much that's out of our control. And this is certainly true when it comes to dignity. There's a lot we can do for ourselves to ensure a dignified life. But for many of us, there are factors out of our control that make it incredibly difficult. So what policy changes could we advocate for so that all people could have access to a dignified life? What community care projects could help more people live with dignity? We all have room to work on our beliefs about money. And many of us have enough room to start changing the larger conversation too.

"Is good, and if you don't have it, you better work your ass off for more of it so that you can be good. I think it makes it so that we are overly focused on the wrong thing. We're overly focused on our own personal shortcomings, right? You did this wrong. You are bad. You are not disciplined. But what I really think that we need to focus on when you feel these negative feelings of shame and guilt, you should explore them and understand where they came from. Who taught you that you should be ashamed of this. Like where did you pick that up? Was it a movie? Was it a song? Was it your grandparents, all of the above? Where does those feelings of guilt come from? Often shame and guilt come from our families having an expectation or society having an expectation of our behavior, we violate that behavior, we feel badly. So I think what we really need to focus on the big shift in this industry is how can we help people heal, heal these parts of them that are broken, and once we focus on that, then we can come whole. And we can help people and we're not judging them, right? If I come whole, if I come knowing that I'm broken and something inside of me needs healing and I work on that healing, then I'm going to come at these questions and concerns and problems that other folks are facing more whole and that's what I think is really important. Can I just say it's weird to be judging other people about money? It's such a weird vibe. That energy to me is always like, you know, some random dude is doing a podcast and he's like judging this woman who needs help and I'm always like, bro, why are you coming out of what's the deal with that energy? She needs your help, not your judgment. I think there is a huge issue with placing morality on money. And I don't think it belongs there. I think we're all just trying to figure out how to be on this planet. Most of us, the great majority of us want to be good people and do good things and we want to do the right thing. We don't want to hurt others. And we don't want to kill mother earth. But it is hard to navigate being in modern life. Navigating capitalism and trying to feel like you are a good person. And we're all on our journey. We all have to make compromises. We all have to realize the ways in which we are going to be negatively impacting others and the planet with our actions, and that's part of the reality. And sometimes you just can not reconcile that neatly. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in discussion about debt. But as Trump and other billionaires have proved over and over again, debt only seems to be bad when you're the wrong kind of person with that debt on your balance sheet. So I asked Paco. What's the deal with debt? When it comes to debt, it is like fire or red wine, right? There are benefits to fire. It allows us to cook our food. It allows us to cook chicken to the internal temperature of a 165°, but it's also if it's out of control, it can burn down your livelihood, right? You're home. Same thing with red wine. There are so many studies that say, one glass of red wine is good for you for a whole bunch of reasons, but like maybe not like two or three bottles every day for many years. That's when you take the thing that's healthy and it becomes unhealthy, right? It's the same thing with debt. We can use debt in a healthy way and in fact, historically, debt has been the thing that allows our economy to grow. It allows our businesses to grow. It allows folks who do not have access to capital to create wealth, right? Buying a house with a 30 year mortgage or the mortgage tool in general in the United States has been the single greatest thing that has allowed folks across all income sectors, right? Folks who are not making very much all the way up to folks who are making a ton. The mortgage has allowed us to build wealth across the board. And that is kind of awesome and maybe a little bit terrifying. Who knows? I mean, our sample size is still quite small. We're only looking at, I don't know, a hundred years of data or something like that. So I think just zooming out as much as possible and looking at debt from all these different lenses and perspectives can allow you to piece together something that works for you. You know what I mean? It's less about this one linear path. It's like we shouldn't look at things with this tunnel vision of just like debt is bad, debt is bad. And yes, it can be bad if you're over levered and you can't afford to pay it back for sure it's bad. But it can also be a tool for growth and for good. All right, to this point, we've talked about our beliefs about money, how they impact our decisions and how they influence the way we feel about ourselves and others. Now for the question I started with. Is time money? Yes? No, or it's complicated. I used to believe that time is money and oftentimes I would look at things that I would buy and I would think, oh man, I'd have to work like 2.5 hours to afford that thing. Is it worth it? And I think when you're first starting out and you're trying to manage your money, that's not a terrible way of thinking about money and time, but when you start to work for yourself when you become self employed and you understand, well, the power of leverage, this is going to sound wrong, but when you are an employer, you basically exploit other people. They work for you, and you make money. And it's crazy. When I realized, I could either be on the side where I have to exchange my time for money or could I jump on that other side and have other people do it for me and then now it's a non issue. When I saw that opportunity for sure, I jumped that fence and I took it. I think money buys time, you know, time is the only non renewable resource money is is a renewable resource. We could create a new offering. We could raise our prices. I mean, when you reach a certain level of financial freedom, when you just have a bunch of money sitting in the market and then it just pays you and you do nothing. I mean, there's so many examples where time is not money. So I've had to like, my whole life, I feel like I'm having to unlearn what has been taught to me. And one of the things I've had to unlearn and I know I see that you have also had to work through this idea as well is this whole gospel of productivity. That was super hard for me to work through. I remember feeling kind of like a dirt bag for only working four hours a day. That was like, I was like, shouldn't I be surely I must be I must do more. I must toil more, but I also think that what's tangled in that belief too is like, am I doing enough am I enough on my deserving of free time? Am I deserving of the space to just be a human appreciating the sunshine on my face? I want to normalize wanting to chill. I think a lot more folks should want to chill because your best work is going to come out in those moments when you're quiet. When you're letting your intuition kind of creep up and whisper into your ear, when you figure out who you are, when you slow.

"Remember time is money is a line from Benjamin Franklin's 1748 essay advice to a young tradesman. He encourages the reader to consider not only the money they might spend if they take a day off work, but also the money they'd lose for not working. Now I don't know about you, but I feel like I've been running that calculation on repeats since I was 16 years old. At least in the U.S., it seems we're born with this idea already encoded into our brains. Max Weber cites this aphorism repeatedly in his book the Protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism. He sees it as a sort of semiotic turning point, a shift from the godly ethic of vocation to the secular ethic of capitalism and wealth building. And remember, this phrase dates back to at least 1748 that's 274 years of cultural indoctrination to this idea. Now if all of that sounds like I'm firmly against considering time as money or money as time, I'm not, but I do think it's an incredibly complicated truism that's worth interrogating instead of merely accepting as immutable. To kick off this deep dive into the question of whether time really is money. I wanted to talk about money. And what money actually is, how we think about it and why the way we think about money matters. I knew the perfect person to have this conversation with Paco de Leon from the hell yeah group. Paco has a brand new book out called finance for the people, which is both extremely practical and very thinky. My favorite. So we started this conversation off really simply. What is money? I love sitting around and pontificating at the weirdness and silliness of money and at its root on its surface at the very lowest level of money is it is a shared delusion. And I know that sounds maybe a little out of touch with reality or partially unhinged, but when you really think about what money is, it's just something that we all believe is valuable. Okay, this is super important. So I want to pause on this idea of money as a shared delusion for just a bit. Probably ten or 11 years ago now, I went to a lecture on money and meaning at my Alma mater. Yeah, I am that kind of nerd. You're such a nerd. That was the first time I was introduced to this idea, this fact, really. Money becomes valuable because you and I and millions of other people believe it is valuable. The government incentivizes us to believe that, of course, but ultimately, without the trust of U.S. consumers, the dollar just wouldn't be. As valuable. Further, this lecturer explained, money exists to make exchange. Easier to make it frictionless. Instead of every trade being a negotiation of how many eggs are equal to a pound of wheat, we can assign a monetary value to each product and then independently decide whether we want to trade our money for the eggs or the wheat or say a new iPhone. Now we're seeing this shared delusion play out in real time right now with cryptocurrency. My current research obsession. What do people believe Bitcoin or ether is worth? And how does that value fluctuate based on the number of people who believe in its value? How is a quote unquote currency impacted if few sellers accept it as payment from buyers? Friends? This is a conversation for another day. A day which is coming. But let's get back to Paco. If money is just this shared delusion, then why is it so important to my survival? If you've never sat and thought about that, if you take for granted, that money is very real thing because it has a very real impact on our lives. I think it's hard for folks to confront that because let's say you're unhappy with your job and you go to work every day and you feel like you're sacrificing your time on your compromising who you are working for this thing money. It's really hard to step back and admit that it's not real, but it's so real. And I think that's what's fascinating to me. About money is it's nothing in its everything. And I think once we start to examine what it is at its core, we can start to ask ourselves, if this thing is based on belief, well, how else is the way that I interact with it based on beliefs? And that really explodes your way of thinking about money. In both amazing ways and terrifying ways. What we believe about money impacts how we interact with it. It's the reason you and I can make drastically different money decisions and there's still the right decisions for us. Money isn't an immutable universal truth, but a fluid relative representation of value, which is always individual. What I value is not what you value. What you value is not what I value. What we each value will be decided by our circumstances, values, personal preferences, and priorities. And even within that relativity, there's also the question of how value is related to available resources. For instance, I might understand and appreciate the value of investing in a house in Montana right now, but I don't have the resources to buy a second home in a volatile market. So while I could justify spending the money, I don't have the money to spend. Now, I'll let Paco give you a much better example. The example that I always love to bring up is I was the $1 oyster. And so for some people, the $1 oyster is a deal, they're like, I got 30 bucks or whatever I'm gonna, I'm gonna eat a bunch of oysters for $1. And this will end well. And for other people, they look at the $1 oyster and they think, uh oh, that's kind of sketchy that a whole oyster is a dollar. I feel like maybe they're old and I'll get sick. But that's the mentality that I was walking around town offering my services for this $1 oyster style. My $1 oyster metaphor is leggings. Yeah, leggings. I see lots of posts on Pinterest and Instagram about how you can find leggings just like Lululemon's on Amazon for 20 bucks. So once I gave it a try, they were decent leggings, sure. But they've got nothing on Lululemon or Athleta. So yeah, I spend a lot of money relatively speaking on leggings and sports bras. But they last me for years, even though I put them through hell. So those $20 leggings might be a great deal for some. But I'll stick with paying extra to make sure I'm getting a better product. I know that might sound like virtue signaling. But honestly, it is just straight up more practical for me to buy a pair of leggings that last. But what we believe about oysters or leggings isn't the only.

The Story of Pecos Bill and the Tornado
"Once upon a time in the wild west a little boy named bill fell off a wagon by the side of the pecos river. Now a normal baby would have cried. His eyes out that this boy was different. He crawled up to a mama coyote and just acted like one of her pups. It was a little hard with him. Not being as hairy. But he was raised by the coyotes for years until his older brother eventually found him and brought him home years later after that he went by the name of paco's spill and as he got older he became famous for being the toughest bronco buster there ever was and he proved it time and time again. Now in case you're a greenhorn. A bronco buster is someone who gets horses used to a saddle. Some horses are okay with being britain but others not so much the fastest and strongest horses. The best for rough riding would fight the saddle. They had to be ridden through the fighting until they got used to it to make that happen someone would have to try and ride while they were still wild. Of course the stallions would buck and spin and kick and jump and go absolutely wild until they sent their writer into the dirt. It was a hard job and bronco busters where the people they called when someone couldn't break a horse themselves and when you had a horse too tough to mean to downright nasty for a buster. You called paco's bill. Bill would travel around the wild parts of america looking for adventure and boy did he find it on his travels. He singlehandedly doug the mississippi river battled the bear lake monster to a standstill and fell in love with a wild woman who rode giant catfish down the rivers. And all that. It's just the first go round in the rodeo of bills life

Three Stanley Cup says owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins after leading them to two as a player. Magic Johnson Nolan Ryan and Warrick Dunne are among those who at one time co own the teams they once played for then there's Michael Jordan and Carolina David Beckham. Who's Inter- MIAMI. Mls team just began. Play this year and Lebron James who owns a piece of Liverpool in the English premier league who are among other athletes who have become owners. Then there's Victor Martinez a five time all star catcher and designated hitter primarily with the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers. He decided on ownership to and now. He has a chance to win his sports. Ultimate prize shot pin Geir Mo going after the leaders and goes tencent on the outside and Paco Lopez sets him down for the driving. He's picking up versus one by one but meanwhile upfront at fifty to one of King Gary Mode now going to aid. Here's pink derm O- on the outside trying to follow your gut. Said Chan said is home on the outside inside the final furlong. Do you believe this king at forty nine to one. He doesn't just want it. He wins it off in press. I cannot think of a former professional athlete. Who owned or co owned a Kentucky Derby winner? Maybe you can. Please let me know but Victor Martinez has a chance to be something of a trailblazer and we are fortunate enough to welcome Victor Martinez for the First Time. Here to investigate. What was it like for you that day? It was crazy it was crazy man with a lot of stuff that we were just praying that you know he likes the door he likes the dirt and then you know I remember having my wife be right beside on my right and You know the final stretch. She kids saying we won. We won and I was like no. You know we still. It's still a race to go super race to go. And she was like we weren't we weren't and then we. I think we're the only people in the race track that was jumping and screaming because he was forty nine to one You know we have gone through a you know a lot of stuff with him. You know special. Because what he's made he's He's debut he may He's view in fighting. Hafer loans on dirt right so you know He. He came out of the big favourite of the race. You know because of these workers stuffing You know it was a fourteen horse. Feel and he ended up seeks to raise so it was Kinda. You know disappointed but we were happy. I mean as a family have my whole family there. We'll have a great time and that was what it's all about. I was I was trying to do that to have with my family but you know I remember the trainer. One Carlos was very very disappointed about his performance. He was you know what I'm saying. I'm sorry I don't know what happened. That was like don't worry about it. I mean we have a great time. You know we have a lot of people came to us and say that king a year is a terrific guy. He got a racer grass so well we decided to give him a chance on on on turf grass and we put him on a mile rate. You got a king gear. Mouse can gear midway on. The turn is opened up. A six length advantage gear comes into the stretch with a seven length. Lead Kozel Listrik Joe. Second third but king who they gotta catch can gear ball popular. Victory here can gear them out by about eight legs so we were like okay. I think he he liked turfing. You know we put him on another race. These these time was the steak then. He came third. So you know He. He lost the race in the final four lawn. Something like that and You know he he make another another big race but I still have my dream united. See how my dream from like my Kentucky Derby horsing. I told the trainer one time I told him Carl listen. I think he deserved one. More shot on dirt. So let's put him on one more time and but Lisa he's not gonNA raise any those leader races. Let's put him on a raise. That point to the Kentucky and he looked at me and he was agreed. We put him on the temporary. We you know we went out there to try. Try Him on again. And then we came out with spider it every now you talked about your trainer Juan Carlos Ave line. You're rider Sammy. Camacho are not that well known on the national thoroughbred racing scene they like you are Venezuelan. Had you thought about going with a more well-established trainer and rider to prepare for the Kentucky? Derby Nope nope they put him in the Kentucky every day going with him to the Kentucky Derby. That's how it works for me.
An Interview with Jockey Daniel Centeno
"He's won nearly twenty nine hundred races here in the United States and nearly nine hundred more in his native Venezuela. Many of those wins have come Tampa Bay downs. Where Jockey Daniel? Centennial was in search of his seventh riding title even earned his first ride in a triple crown race. The preakness where we finished eleventh on it always mining all jockeys have obstacles to overcome. That's obviously the nature of the business. But one year ago Daniel Centennial had an even tougher burden to bear in January of two thousand. Nineteen centennial's longtime partner Ashley. George died after a nearly lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis roses. She left behind their daughter. Jasmine who's now in seventh grade. It's tough enough being a single dad and oh by the way Santana also has a twenty year old son son in college but it's pretty tough to work from home when you do what he does. So let's find out how he makes it all work as we welcome for the first time here to win the gate jockey. Daniel Centeno already. A handful of wins for you at the Tampa Bay. Meet a place where you've had quite a bit of success over the years more so than in Maryland where you ridden over the summer. What's been the key to your success in Tampa I dunno being here for light Fifteen sixteen years now for my first time and I I talk like it. I love the weather. I'm never been relieved. Grind with the cold weather. I never try to stay up on the winning thing and I did year by year. You know writing better courses that train and I got to my support here at the beginning from gaming as Kathy O'CONNELL and ride them for their like. WHO So? Maybe you know. Open a lot of a lot more awesome around the track and you know all my area that had been working for Greg to you split you. Year between Laurel Park in Maryland and Tampa. But now I know we're not going to see you what aqueduct in the winter based on what you just said but what made you choose those tracks supposed to say New York or California well because People that are right in for here in Tampa wants to go to Laurel Delaware and the year see bars. So that's like my shadow. God Nora Bill and it's pretty time so I'm really basically driving them. Everywhere are but We're doing good and a lot of oxygen around jockeys are said to have particular writing styles go for example Paco. Lopez takes horses away from the gate aggressively. Everybody knows that likes to go to the early lead. Pat Day was known as wait all day coming from behind. Nine Calvin Burrell is Calvin Bo Rail. You know where he's taking is horses. What do you consider to be your style? Well I I would say eighty two. I like to be more delay but You know it depends on what kind of house I've gone awry but I would like to be close to my thousand dollars outbreak throats to the Leo to pay Being the lead. But it's a defendant to pry. Sometimes you gotTa Jenny a little bit your style to fit all on the horses you know and then workout good too but I'm I feel more comfortable. Really close to the lay or something. That'd be proponent department of your nearly two thousand nine hundred career wins. You've won five grade three races in your career and a single grade to aboard ring weekend in the two thousand fourteen Tampa Bay Derby. You weren't a ride in the preakness as well in two thousand nineteen. What do those kinds of races mean to you? They they mean a lot for me. You know because I can help your mom. I Don t still down so I'd be doing building my curry of keying in this country like little by little step-by-step working hard right in the for different track The Great State for me the main a lot for me you know like I were so hot. And it's like a bay off for my work and I'm never give up and try you know especially luckier when I wrote a pregnant of like a drink of through. You know the the big horse and it would broaden your really good him. Kelly Rowland the ordinary. They give me the opportunity right. Trading is what so I drink too for me. Was it hard not to look around and just take in the atmosphere and instead focus on what you were doing. How hard list to do? Yeah well I come from Venezuela complete different compare here and then you really have to focus at work workout every day so you can get your business and you know doing your job and you know made me thanks you know and then try to cloud what every day. How hard was it making the adjustment from Venezuela coming here as a young man not sure of the language and not knowing what's at your prospects would be? What was that adjustment like well? There's a big chance you know especially with the with the language that you have to really talk to do every body and understand what they wanna tell you frighteners on there. When I was in Minnesota last dot doing English class and private I went to high school and in a private school so when I came back here I can't hear one time? Nineteen Ninety six. So I didn't really good because language I think more mar and then went back to Venezuela so I wanNA come back yet again and and do the same. That's what I do. Day lift classes private and Eleven when again by Two Thousand and three door. Hi You I was big little be I understand a little bit and then I got it your breakfast every day. You're talking every day so make as you Jackie Daniels. Centeno joins us here on the gate. It's been a year or so now. I belief since your partner Ashley George passed away from cystic fibrosis. What was it like losing her? And what's alive. You know US work together for the book thing and we went to a lot of work on every time Fago. What's getting worse and especially my daughter Yachtsman but I'm blessed my daughter's so throng which Banja La doing amazing and Making it every day you gotta be strong for my daughter and then their best for her. Now I believe when you have cystic fibrosis yes you have it almost your entire life so you must have known when you met her that she had this condition. Is that right. Yeah Yeah Yeah keep telling me from the beginning to doing doing okay. But in the meantime wanting her lungs would getting worse and worse than that was boring. They're are there only chantey how they would've transplant. And the medical cameras are not that both longtime plans doing quake and one day. Keep them back home for Halloween. And she that stroke and she was to call my mom to wake like Lamb and never for memory to talk in everything but no memory and keep going. I asked me and see what's in the two years and and doctors say to her body was rejecting everything again and then get get Her body stop working.

Happy because you know she can be herself grandma what they get her. I was flying back and forth some time with me to see her but kick No recognize anybody know memories your longtime memories. The more you so I went to Work Yom okay and too much medication So it was really good time for my daughter and either adopt nine so oh my goodness now. It's one thing to being a dad but it's another thing when those kids are both teenagers because says many of our listeners know teen is four letter word I know I have a teenager and yours are on the opposite end of the teenage spectrums.

"Better majority time but you know what can you do. I mean if you feel like you're the smartest guy in the room and then you know everything. Ask then you don't then you're on your own. People don't want to work with people making that to you know <hes> <hes> the most i had so many entrepreneurs in this show and every day i'm blessed to be interviewing you and the common denominator is that you're you're humble that you're i'm not the one pointing the northstar and asking the question. Hey would you wanna come here. What do you need to get. This done. Helped me out disorder. Regina go right and those things all right. Les last two questions. What's your secret in learning new stuff. I've seen well what a transformation mation. You've done the ups and all these things at selling telco stuff cable to ice cream. Yeah what's your secret you guess she always seemed to reinvent yourself and these are all completely new pats with a with ice cream it or something that i really enjoy k. so i like eating the ice cream and brings back a lot of good memories so i think if you get into something that you enjoy it's easy to be busy with it. I lean you're researching stuff about it to take classes and how to be better doing it. It doesn't feel like work. You're not working. Yes you enjoy it. I'm trying out new flavors and this and that so when you do something that you enjoy it cuts down the the feeling that it's work right and it makes it easier to to be better at drew yeah okay last question. What's your secret sauce. I mean there's always always a secret sauce like i'll i'll complete my secret sauce through everything that i've done is whatever and i've learned this from jordan belford <hes> wolf of wall street the component of selling that people often are often overlook is he had to be likeable and the way i become likeable and people don't know this but the scientists my head. That's a formula. I gotta make you laugh. Humor is my secret sauce. I don't on care if it's self-deprecation once gets you to laugh. You're hooked lenny. That's it right but for you. What's your secret sauce all this journey because so you've been successful at three all these things if there are some struggles yes but there's there's some. There's got to be secret sauce i don't i i never put money as the goldie money was never the goal got like when we started garments best. I didn't have an idea like oh you have to make x. Amount of sales <unk> per month that for us to or we need to make this much money and if i was so concerned with the cost or the how much money we make then meeting. My ingredients wouldn't be so so expensive and it wouldn't they set way right. You know so for me it just it's just seeing the bottom line in terms of are we going to make this company run run or succeed or not so do everything do everything to make it work right so it's not really selling so much or earning so much acquiring a certain material asset. It's more about making the business run and growing it. Let's it that is amazing again thank you. I appreciate it for me so much. I was so impressed with joy spring episode. I'm more impressed now that we had. I hope you had fun. You know this is this amazing but again pakelle what's next requirements best and invite over people do if they're hungry at respect right now and they're listening to that's working. They find the new carbon. They have flavors and what we have our shop in power plant iraq hysteria today but you no. I went through rough well. I didn't get dropped by area on the other side. The you know the escalator where your areas it's fixed yeah. They have to go through the grocery side park nearby. I i know where it is right so we have <hes> milkshakes and sundaes there but here in down down center. We just saw the ice cream and we're gonna be opening. Hopefully before the end of the year in yucatan santa yuki. That's a that's like really a flipside. I don't have any presents right. Yes you know john.

"When i got out of college and i couldn't find a job that was so good at that time i was working part-time. That's crazy now after that you go back here in the philippines what you came back after a few years that i work for a company called. MCI MCI microwave communications inc microwave so this was when eight the empty was disbanded long distance was. It's no longer a monopoly right so eight. MCI came in sprint came LDDS came in so we were selling long distance packages to small and medium business. Wow and i remember <hes> we were like a sales group of forty to fifty people and the sales esteem but we had different levels of packages so like i was handling small and medium soul zero two thousand dollar billers meaning small businesses right then and there was another group that did two thousand five thousand five hundred whatever yeah so so i was part of the smaller theme though and my motivation to excel right was to not wear a tie because i hated wearing diorite right works so i said if i sell so much nobody can question what i wear right route so my motivation was not money motivational snack to the highest. I'm going to sell so much. I don't have to wear thank. You can't fuck with my out today. If i wear denim jacket yeah <hes> well <hes> i would work. I would work saturday sundays because that's when small and medium business owners are working directly on weekends. There's no holidays and every day counts really and number two. I concentrated with asian businesses because i was the only ancient in the whole office no way so not many they're not so many <hes> small and medium business that were started by caucasians or right right. They're all minorities. Minority not say primarily from what i saw was asian market right okay so that was perfect for me. Yeah and you're the only guy in asian there. It does perfect that i i. I argued that that segment got it so i narrowed down you know it's like you narrow down your market. <hes> and i narrowed on my market and said you. I'll have better success setting to other asians than trying to sell to a white guy got you by. Where are you gotta be different. Style is different yeah the silence and then of course white white birds on dr blockers are asian to asia right so i had huge success with closing accounts of the asian market and i was for a few months i was number two wow sales grid out of the forty to fifty people in the whole houston area for office task crazy so nobody was questioning what that's an amazing motivation invasion but this rings a bell with me because in my first startup guest list beach i did that during college it was my thesis pieces and what that does basically is get people through the guest list of clubs. I knew i could talk. I didn't know how to sell so i joined this company called group on and our exactly doing what you're doing and whatnot and that's when i realized also that man can sell i can persuade for you. What was your formula in telling because there's nothing if you mastered a steal of sales we can sell anything for saying really yeah well. You have to believe in your product. I i mean it's gotta be something tangible something that you believe in and number two you have to be sincere in because if you're not sincere people see through you right the smell the bullshit so either you believe in what you're selling and you honestly feel that you're helping the person then you know being sincere. It'll make it easier for you to sell a product or service and then what there's some tactics and strategy leiper example of me as i grew along <hes> i've seen a lot of sales people do this where it's a shotgun approach spray and pray free me. It's more like eight to qualify and i you said i don't want to wear a tie. The picture that came to my head was jordan belfort of wolf of wall street the go door to door but what i learned that movie was precision on cure. Some guys will take one hundred shots. Go home with ten or nine. I wanna be in ten. I'll close nine but i want to make sure that these are all enveloping words. Shoot all right. You want to be sure all right. You qualify your lead. Making sure are the decision maker. Do they have the money to they have interest because if not don't waste my time not even gonna talk to your story but for are you. What was your strategy like a top seller. There's a formula to that. It's not jamba had to try to understand their you know where were they. Were coming from joe and also i wanted to understand like if they were caught and their japanese i philippine so i had to die to understand also who i was talking talking to and who my audience was and then from there <hes> just be yourself. I mean if you try to to put too much fluff. It's not it's not a good thing that sometimes you get lost in what you're saying because you're trying to say so much and also it's important to listen to them. Sometimes they're saying stuff and you're not picking it up when in fact he can use it to help deal right exactly so so don't be concerned about what you're going to push what you're going to tell them but also think of what information you get from them that can help you closed yeah absolutely and i agree because sales pitches to be honest are not pitches their conversations a lot of people that i've seen would try to hammer hammer down go through a whole spiel. Don't care what they're saying. I finish this and i think that's done if they're impressed. Are you interested site now. No you have to converse first of all you gotta. Ask by asking this myself. This is like trade secrets by asking your qualifying them. You're getting them to get a talk and now you. You not too weak spots that you can actually penetrate if not then you're. You're doing a one-size-fits-all approach and then god knows what's going to happen after that now no after this buckle was how did you go back to the philippines. What would what made you decide to go back when we come back. He said he wanted me you to help with the family business and the family business was keeble v systems in the provinces which provinces but dan gas gas when somebody wow that's a captive market right there and this is the nineties where i we started in the seventies wow so my dad is known as the the the pioneer of the cable TV industry in the country. Oh my gosh so that was the business that helped me help put me through school and this is prior to this guy gables and whatever signals and you're not and it started in the south. How how how hard it is because was it. It's not like manila where everything is. It's literally. It's so compact were cable skin run through several neighborhoods in just a span of kilometers here tombaugh long real the distances where you gotta put little cables on TV out. How how hard was that rain well. Let's see our franchise was based on birth city per city so when you let's say get lucena city or a long upper city you're looking at that area only so you you set up dinah system and you run it like you said reynecke will down to so that was when the analog these we would pick up signals us from manila and then really through the high and dinner and then the signal would go to the cables at it. That's how cable TV TV started in the US and just like a normal tv transmission but you're just putting in premium channels. Is that the no it's like. Let's say in francisco or your are you st- on atlanta luther the key cities right but everything outside that they don't have a cable they don't have a TV station so the signal of that TV station can only go a certain radios but if you put up antenna which is about maybe fifty or one hundred miles away then you costanza then you can pick up that signal rebroadcast or resend the signaled signaled similar to those those wifi stretchers that we now have younger just in some parts of your house is not being reached someone like that all right. Take a break and when we come back let's talk more about how you help your dad with the cable business and how carmen best was born and but more of that after the break hey hustlers.

The bad thing was i was depended on my startup for my survival our trying to grow so i ended up getting a lot of bad deals because that was desperate so in in my next startup which is chat block age. I made sure that i'm not going to be deceived mistake so i got into the art of freelancing by making enough money on the side to make ends meet it allowed me to flourish and get acquired just told months after committed up but that wouldn't happen if i didn't get paid on time and there's one product that i relied on heavily to get pete easily the league and its paige near.

"Lawyers trial lawyers college lawyers. Who can to session on? Saturday and Mike trainer happened to being in town at that time us one of TLC psycho dramas. We all came together to work on this case and do the best we could with the limited time that we have to learn his story and it was hard because he's here alone. I mean he's families in Iraq. He had some friends here but he'd also didn't understand how pony was to have lay witnesses. Who can come and tell his story so we had to do with him alone and in that day. You know several hours of working Saturday with Mike Trainers help. And all the details he lawyers you know that when You do the discover the story exercises with people. You get to know them well and that helped. I think he sewing that process that the lawyers that we brought together to discover stories so that we could tell at a trial showed a Lotta love for him and give him a lot of trust and confidence in what we were doing for him. And so Dot created on and so when he told me at the end of the trial that he wanted me to visit him. I felt great but at the same time it was extremely painful because I feel like I let him down and He needed my help in ways to security's future and I fell to do that And he was extremely gracious soul. He's graciousness added to the pain that I was feeling It was more like he was taking care of me at that moment than taking care of him. So you've feeling that you let him down. Being met with his taking care of you tough it was it. It it it's it's kind of a surreal moment right. That here's a guy who Was counting on my work with my colleagues from the office. Scott Smith Steve Fury and others. Who wanted to really make sure that we learn his story? Well Yeah it was really. It was really hard. It was really hard when I think back. At the moment he solo helps me today at least two weeks after the trial to give myself a little bit permission for having lost his case that I least I can walk away. With the satisfaction maybe rather the fulfillment of knowing that he felt that. I care for him that I loved them and that I did everything I could with limitations that we had to really help them and I think he saw that and I think he was very grateful for that so but I don't think that would have been possible without a trial lawyers college. I don't think that I would have learned to care for him as deeply as we did so that we can tell his story right and we did tell the story right. Well maybe not. Actually I think if I had a chance to do it again I would do differently but I am stuck in this trial for different reasons. Not just because I lost a case for him and didn't end up helping him but The Andrew that I'm feeling today about how fragmented our country is was so evident indistrial and our jury selection was a complete moment of tribalism at his worst not at his best And you can see the groups within the jury pool how they were firmly in their positions and I feel like as a trial lawyer and someone who's gone through travelers college that I should have banned better equipped to have bonded this group together. Tell us about what happened. What they said so So we had A group of people that I would put in the category of Evangelicals Who also connected to police officers and they spoke about being completely angry and mad at anyone who would say anything bad about the police and that they felt that any criticism on the police was undeserved and Should not be tolerated and the use terms like anger and frustration and distrust for Any sort of criticism or attack on police conduct on police behavior. How did you respond openly? I talked to them about the fact that I understand why it's so important to have a police force and what solemn point to believe in the rule of law and I just let them tell me exactly how they failed The conversation turned out to be very positive to the point that several of them would say and did say that. If they were in some years shoes they would not want a juror themselves Which was a good moment and I think the only way that we could have gotten there was because of my training the trailer is college start. We can have a very genuine anonymous discussion with someone that they will be revealing those sort of Biases But he was opposed by opposing counsel. Obviously and the judge did not grant any challenges for cause in spite of the fact that what disturbs that said at the same time there were others in a similar position on a coup. Call the same tribe who refuse to acknowledge even though you can see it in their body language and their facial expressions in the way that they said in the way that they cross their arms in the way that they turned their bodies away from you though sort of things Yunhu That they would hold any criticism against the police against person that was bringing that challenge against us and of course when the core gets up and says can you follow my joints my instructions? And can you be fair and impartial? What is this person? GonNa say yes. Of course and so. They sat one of the amazing things in the jury. Selection process too was that there were people who have had bad experiences with police but interest. Selena these folks were Extremely opening candidate about their biases towards the police. And so they say similar things like you know. I don't think I would be writing this case because I think I would hold it against police. Those individuals were excused. And I didn't oppose that either because I felt that that was the right thing to do. That was the honorable thing to do. That is the thing that you do when you believe in the rule of law of course he hurt my hurt me the side of me. That wants to win to see them lose to see them leave but the right thing to do was legally they? They describe an internal bias that wasn't appropriate challenge for cause and of course they opposing counsel and the judge had no problems. Excusing this people so we ended up. Having an are jury. Pool was an extremely pro-police Jury but that's not necessarily a bad thing you know. I think what was a bad thing is that I did not know that moment How to best connect with them and I think that there is a way to reach him but given the moment and the situation I felt like I failed because we know we can connect with people who are different from us. Their stories are stories. Their personal issues are personal issues. did trials and tribulations are not different than anyone else's in that courtroom and I was not good enough at connecting that with them but I think part of it is also my anger towers. What's happening in our country? We're so divided that we only speak of hate. We don't speak of unity. A connection anymore and people feel more justified to dig their heels in the sand. And Say A -rageous thins because we can now And I liked that part about eight openness candor but I also think that people are not willing to look beyond their tribe and So tribalism worked against US this time around. Do you think that either the color of your skin or the way you talk or the fact that your client is Kurdish from Iraq had any bearing My first thought to that question is you know All God he's playing the race card you know he's he's talking about race but yeah race was very present. That Room Such saw that The few people of Color that were in this jury panel with the exception of one Never made it to the jury pool to actually sit and this trial I do think that The fact that he that Samir spoke with extremely strong Accent he look exactly from Iraq and that he was here alone and didn't have others present with him made him At the more vulnerable for the stereotype I don't know if my accent the way I look at any bearing on the trial. Sometimes I know he does because you can see people's facial expressions to what I say or do But I don't know I WanNa think that we could transcend those moments but I did in transcended this time so we have many tribes right. We've got the pro-police Tribe. We've got the TORT REFORM TRY. We've got different races different nationalities. How do we make our tribe? The jury's tribe so we can get over those differences and Kanak well we are all human. We all have Yet at some time in our lives we had a mom and a dad that came together and Made us we have that in common. We have in common our feelings our emotions we have in common the hardships of life that we all experience from being a little child who's hungry and cries to later on in life. You know feeling hurt by others or hurting others because we did something wrong at the end of the we are all really the same way not different There was not one person in that jury has not had a human trial or human tribulation. That does not connect us all in one way or another people have been punish. People have been betrayed. People have banned Berated people have fell love. People feel hugs. People have failed compassion empathy so we were all human But for whatever reason in this moment at this time we do not see itself as one on the same. We focus on our differences more than we focus on our similarities. And that's where I as a lawyer feel that I didn't do enough to really bring this group of people together so that they can see that we are all really one and the same and I could not get them to the point to see beyond the tribe that they belong to and see that we will part of the same one and if you were to do it over how would you do differently. Well I was afraid you were. GonNa ask me that question because I've been wrestling with this quite a bit There couple things that I think will do knowing what I know. Today I would have taking more of a leadership in the jury selection process Here's what I mean by that. There is a way that I do jury selection and this was a judge that It's new and he had said he was going to do some things. And so I was counting on those gains but he forgot neglected to do them and so I wasn't prepared for that moment And I would have asked for a longer period of time with jury selection and would have explained to the court why it was so important to have it I think that I needed to be more real with this jury about what I was seeing in a way that would not have come across as judgmental and as accusatory but in a way that I could said to them. We really focusing so much on our differences today. Why's that why? Why are we so focused on why we saw as opposed to what makes us all alike and I could assure story as to why and how I do that today? You know I'm having a hard time Dealing with people who in today's climate fueled justify? You know to say that Black Lives Matter. You know But I need to understand why they say that and help them so. I think one of the things that I would do differently. This time around is to to really talk a great deal of candor about how why we focus so much on the differences and not under similarities and see if I could have then Facilitated discussion with this group as to what makes us better when we focus on our differences or we focus on our common ground Maybe that would have made a difference.
"paco" Discussed on Trial Lawyer Talk
"We simply have great lawyers to great stories from cases that had a profound impact on them. So let's get started and I'm really excited to be sitting with a great trial lawyer. I have a habit of saying phenomenal trial. Lawyer and Francisco to worte. Palko is a trailer that handles both criminal cases and civil cases his based out of Seattle but is truly a gifted genuine authentic trial lawyer and an especially talented teacher of trial lawyers. Palko thanks for being with us. Hi Scott good to be with you. It's been a long time. He thrilled to see you again. So my eyes have finally come to lay upon you after so many years. I don't know five six years. Maybe he'd be more far. Dong has been far too long indeed. But it's so wonderful to be with you. Thank you feel good. Can you share with this story of a case that had a profound impact on you dipping? Several maybe many And as I think back on my cases They all seem to start to blend in one way or another mainly because When you work with someone and you have the honor and a privilege to represent a human being who come to you and said I won you. I trust you and at one you to be my spokesperson. It's an incredible responsibility. But it's also a thrill and one of the things that I've realized over. The years is that people need someone to fight for them and so many of us having had that. And so. It's truly amazing when you can take on a person's case a person's problems and say to them and to yourself. I'm GONNA do everything within my power to make a difference in your life and I am GonNa fight for you And that's what travelers do we fight for people. Palko let me ask you. You said many of us have not had people to fight for us. Where does that come from? In Pacos life he comes Several places Thinking back on my own childhood My Mom and dad and have someone to fight for them. My Dad was very ill and We would learn. We lived in Columbia. That's where I was born and he couldn't get medical help medical treatment there so he came to the United States for help and You know the doctors in Elmhurst hospital in Queens really fought for my dad Casino have someone to fire when he was living in Columbia and they gave him A. Yeah the dialysis machine that he could take home to give it to him. And so my mom and Dad They did they alice's at home. And then you know my dad eventually died when I was around fourteen to nose. Just my mom. And she was cleaning houses in the upper east side in Manhattan for extremely wealthy people. And that's what she took care of us and so she She didn't have someone to fight for her and defend her. And I never forget watching routes when I first came to the United States and I'm watching this story about slavery in America and I'm thinking no one's fighting for for the slaves and I thought a lot about that too. And so I think Does have some of my earliest memories of thinking about you know.
