West Hollywood, Los Angeles, Closes 2 Parks Due To Noncompliance With Mask, Social Distancing Protocols

"Hollywood city manager has issued a temporary and emergency executive order closing West Hollywood Park and Plummer Park after numerous reports of people failing to comply with rules to curb the spread of covert 19. He says about half of park users in recent days have violated the city's face covering requirements and social distancing protocols and have altered and or destroyed protective barriers intended to keep playground's closed. The city officially closed its parks April 9th. But as the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health eased restrictions West Hollywood reopen them on June 15th.

"plummer" Discussed on WIBC 93.1FM

"Your house your homeowner now you've got to take care of it you're not call the landlord in this case you're going to the home depot your call your your lecture sure Plummer whoever it is to come fix that problem in most cases that's coming out of your pocket damn as I continue on here we look at area code two one seven and see where that's got us but I'm just curious as to whether so I the other factor in this Lisa mentions that they've got thirty five thousand dollars save for the home which is amazing and I'm excited about that but Dame what we know about the whole saving for a down payment for a home sometimes people confuse or intermingle their emergency fund in their regular savings with this down payment money which can be a giant mistake where is two one seven middle of Illinois okay so we're talking of forcible house and okay all right well this this makes a lot of sense to me now so let's say they put ten percent down and and let's assume that that thirty five thousand is part of their savings account too so let's say they want to keep twenty a savings and fifteen as a down payment they could buy a hundred fifty thousand dollar house and in in the mortgage payment would probably be what whatever ails eleven hundred twelve hundred Bucks a month probably it doesn't scare me no I you gotta figure there are no lease payments going to be well maybe seven hundred thousand so I don't know but I'll say this to if fifty eight years old we generally try to tell people at any age that we want you to stay in whatever home you're gonna be in for at least five years I think that's not to be a problem here yeah I think that's gonna be not a non issue for for these folks but and the one thing I do want to circle back to this we also encourage people to try and tie your mortgage to end this close to retirement as possible so I think the fifteen year option is really important here because you don't want to drag that mortgage too far into the future I agree with that and last then there's a one on one situation that the major unless here and if it's true then they are the rarest of rare creatures but that is two pensions if they both have an employer pension I'm not as concerned because their income will likely stay the same if not go up between social score in the pension from their working which is now well I'm gonna throw another cavea little boy we know there in Illinois so if they're getting to state funded pensions no not state funded but yes if they get state funded pensions I would also be nervous because Illinois is a dumpster fire from a financial standpoint yes I'm sorry Stephanie tonight that sorry but but you know if they lived in central noise on manufacturers you know things like that we think Elena been Afaria I think this is probably more agricultural than manufacturing would be my guess I do not think fifty eight years old is too old to buy your first home I think it's kinda awesome but I would say I bank is going to Lida E. yes they're gonna lead you down a weird path I think with this the bank only really cares we can make the first thirty six payments that that is that is fact so they only think these people are gonna be alive till sixty one and that's all the concerns so the beta sure you can borrow two hundred fifty thousand and thirty year mortgage don't go oh my gosh we are awesome the maybe you are awesome but I would not borrow that much money I would I would do anything we don't know their income we don't but I think your first house a hundred fifty thousand or something like that in central Illinois based on what they have saved I would think that is I mean if they're leasing right now I'm we think the lease of the house it would be the renting houses I would assume so yeah I would assume that would get them into something comparable to to what there are leasing right now okay so maybe that's the other question one the one of my house now you know if if the reason is because they want to be able to some point permanently eliminate housing costs the great you know it's because it's something they've always wanted to do you know like when Peter like we always want to go to Disney so we win ten thousand dollars in credit card debt and it's like well you know when the done that can't put a price on memories P. you can't put a price on a good time did you know I'm okay with this but I'm a little nervous that when you released a rented for so long when something breaks it's not your problem it's your landlord's problems so that even that culturally of like understanding that sun goes wrong and you got to maintain it that's expensive no yeah that's just something you never had to deal with a part of your budget that is completely unexplored so as a as a homeowner I will tell you to buckle up because things seem to happen in clumps or clusters I don't know about you but one one thing because from you're not usually talking about hundreds of dollars of repairs it's it's usually in the thousands the team here at your money line last year went through a nasty case of the money bleeding where they were passing it around it was contagious yeah you got it I got it everybody got it was funny it wasn't funny was awful one last thing there's another thing that makes me nervous about age fifty eight about making a major purchase is that right on the other side of fifty eight is fifty nine right after the fifty nine at fifty nine and a half when a person frees up a lot of qualified assets which can then make it seem like a good idea to just spend more money you've ever spent before because you have access to your IRA's and four oh one K.'s and we don't see that so in conclusion send us more details Lisa all right Dan coming off the break we're going to launch a money it will talk about it before we come back from the break because I didn't tell you about it it's really a religion money here and answer more questions on the peep the planner show on him the planner wake up and text tax in each tax didn't catch the bus text in miss your stop reverberate text and be late to work sorry taxed in work text and pretend to work text the next price when someone calls you out for not working to me text to meet up with a friend you haven't seen in forever hi texting complain that they're on their phone the whole time text and listen to them complaining you're on your phone the whole time text in whatever but when you.

Squeezing a Bathroom Renovation Into 3 Flu Filled Days

"Also promised in that. podcast ask that we were going to give you an update on our bathroom renovation. I think we said it was lingering around the ninety two ninety one percent complete stage specific ninety to ninety. uh-huh think you were the specific one. I said ninety one update. It's still at that exact ninety to ninety one percent done stage because we've done nothing in the past week I feel like I've changed. Change the toilet paper roll. That's about it last week. Yes I think it got to the point where it was functional and everything else that's left on our to do list is kind of just like icing on the a cake like to get it to the place where we wanted to look the way we've always pictured but like it works like we have a shower we have tub. We have a toilet the TUB say. Oh guys the toilet do who is also life changing but let me just tell you this. Tub I'm obsessed with the TUB and the shower is it's like a whole full body experience to say that might sound grabbing. It's just my entire being likes being in the bathroom now and taking a shower and I'm just going to cut out for us to take back. I just have flaka. Happiness level cushion change. That is even surprising to me and I've been doing renovations for a long time but I just think like six years of Tub that I couldn't submerging shower. That was really dark. I think it's easy to tell yourself. It doesn't make a difference but it really when you take the time to update it is something that you soak up like. I'm not just over it. I'm not like okay. My eyes have adjusted bathroom. And now it's average like every time I walk in there I'm still like oh my goodness it's so amazing. Certainly still in the honeymoon phase. Nice but I think the other reason why like our pace has kind of like change in. There's like Ebony flow is because we went through a very fast paced couple of weeks right before the holidays and actually through the holidays because if you follow us on instagram you probably saw a little bit of this honor into stories. I think we reference in a blog post but we were kind of like chugging along like the shower took us longer than expected but that was fine because one of the parameters of this project was like we wanted to not have a deadline. Like we didn't want to stress over the timing. Yes yes remember that podcast. We were like. Here's how you do with the big renovation. Do not freak out a time line. Make it flexible. Oh did we make it flexible. He did just like so the tiles taking longer. It's going to be beautiful. Who Cares? There's no deadline. It's not like when my mom comes to visit at Christmas. We have to like have a perfectly titled Shower. No because it was our bathroom but if you saw the stories we suddenly only had deadline because we called our plummer to schedule him and he said Oh. I'm having knee surgery in four days and will be out of commission for five weeks so hello Sharon are like we have to have this bathroom ready for like the toilet and the Vanity Bathtub within four days actually three because he was coming on the fourth day. Yeah it went from like it's okay. If we don't do it now we can do it tomorrow to like but we don't want to wait five weeks in February suddenly when we were around Christmas and so we just we're like we're going to put our heads down. It's going to be one of those things where we're up so two in the morning we're really tired but in the end we're going to end up with a bathroom. That's fully installed within four days so like maybe it's it's worth it like. Sometimes you gotta be chill. Sometimes you gotta kick it into gear. Yeah I was the less confident in the completion and Sherry was because at the moment we found out our floor was was half tiled like we hadn't finished tiling the floor and that meant we had to finish the floor. We had to grout the floor and we also had this big wall molding treatment. We wanted wanted to do throughout the room. And I know that doesn't sound like a super long list. But if you've ever installed something like wainscoting or a board and batten or something there's there's a lot of different steps that take time beyond just the installation you also have to like caulk everything and let that dry and then paint everything and let that dry and same with the grouting. The floor like not only did we have to finish tiling the floor and let the mortar dry then we had to grout and let that dry and set before people can walk on it and so it was suddenly all these different different factors that we had to figure out how to squeeze in to that basically three day period. What's that give it hasn't Zach Galifianakis and it has all this math? Ask floating around. That was us where we were like. Okay maybe while the grounds drying we tiptoe on the big tiles because once the mortar sets you can walk on the tile. You just can't touch the grout out and wall that's trying will put in the trim on Tiptoe because if we just lined up all the waiting periods and didn't do anything between them we wouldn't make it in three and a half afd as well and then the universe throws a curve ball because the next morning so after we had figured out our timeline one of our kids came down with flu real bad you know which is not fun on its own owned by any means because there was lots of miss days of school like the entire week so one we also suddenly had to juggle caring for a sick child and then also the doctor it was like yeah. There's a good chance you guys are going to get it so now we have this thing in our heads. That's like well if Sherry or I get the flu in the middle of this tight deadline like we're not go to make it. I got coughed at in my face I got sneezed at into my mouth like I was. I actively have the flu. I'm just waiting for it to take my body like I felt like we were on the edge of a disaster so we work like furiously just feeling the flu chasing us down in the end. I did not get the flu well and I did not at the flu until after everything was done so we got the wall molding in we got the floor grounded. We actually hit the plumbers deadline. Perfectly away but then he called and pushed it back a day because they were cramming so much stuff any. We were last on the list that they didn't get to us so actually instead of the plumber coming he he sent his son and his partner who works with the group but like the plumber had wanted to come and finish the job himself since he had started it so it ended up being just fine. The only like hiccup was that the sun was not equipped to put the TUB in so before Christmas. We only got the toilet and the vanity. But you know what that was a win. I didn't care if the TUB needed to wait. I cared a little bit but it was okay because other thing to note is that we had not crowded the shower yet so we knew we weren't getting a shower because we switch gears completely from the shower because we're like we'll do the shower another time we gotta get the floor stuff done so at least the toilet vanity could come in well. We felt like a toilet and a sink was like the thing we used most like before bed and in the morning and so if we have to use the hall shower a little bit longer I was like no big deal. I was like no big deal. I'm going to take a nap. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah and then come down with the flu a one day grace period because we were so excited to have have the bathroom suddenly come together so quickly like it had seemed to be going at this moderate pace and then suddenly we had a half functioning room so we were encouraged encouraged by that and tried to use that momentum and turn our attention to our closet because that was the next big piece to make this room functioning again. Well I think we were like it's been four days and neither has got the flu. We're safe and we started new project and John had the flu while we did that. One I think I was clear for the day that we constructed all the boxes. You know we use the PACS system and so we had to build all of the actual like frames for it but then the next day as we're starting to do the shelves and drawers and doors and all the other parts of it. I started to feel like my time had come and it was a weird flu. I don't know if anyone else had had it this season. I had it for I. I think seven days like basically entire week of Christmas and I didn't feel normal again until we left for Costa Rica like the morning we got on our flight was the first day I felt normal and that was new year's Eve Day. Yeah it was definitely a shadow over the holidays. It was like our child solid week and then Jonah sell but it was like I I would be fine at some points like I was fine for Christmas morning. Thank goodness he rallied. I was fine to do some work on the closet like we got all the drawers assembled. I was able to trim out the the Pax wardrobes to make them look built in. But then it'd be like an hour later. I was like in bed with the most intense shivers and fever. I've ever had my life like I couldn't get warm and I could not move move motivate myself to get out when I describe it as John took to the bed and there was like a Ken. Someone get me a cold wash cloth like it was. It was a reenactment from a period film where someone had the plague and I was like. I can't get the flu because if I get it a week after John I get it for all of Costa Rica. I've carrying for him but I'm also trying not to contract and then give it to our other child who didn't have it so it was like a state of somewhat quarantine earn teen but I'm also taking care of the kids and by the way we have a house guests because it's the holidays and it was just nuts because sometimes john would be fine like we'd work on the closet and then sometimes is it would be like he must be in bed for forty eight hours and it happened so suddenly one time we were out running an errand and I felt it coming on as we were driving home and I had to get myself laying down so fast. I forgot to close the car door. L. Picture someone running sprinting into the house and then like two hours or three hours later I went outside and I was like. Why is the driver's side door? It was the next morning but I was like did generally take to the bed so quickly that he didn't close the door and that is actually what happened. It was intense but I am grateful that we didn't all get it. I'm grateful we were all better by the time we went to Costa Rica. I mean my appetite wasn't fully back so don't feel like I got to enjoy the food as much. I enjoy the shrimp Sivy. Che Immensely for you. Yeah well if that's the worst thing about the trip that I'm all good and again. It had a happy ending because we made a lot of progress. Because of all these deadlines. We suddenly got for the bathroom and we did get our shower and tub in after the holidays days and again now we just have like that last nine to ten percent left to do. Yeah and everyone's like oh I can't wait to see it and I'm like me to like we do really want this. Do we finish. Maybe in a few weeks will actually have it finished because it involves like we said some biggish things like hanging door and building the frame ourselves frosting it and painting it. So don't freak out. It's going to be

What to watch for during Trump's 2020 State of the Union address

"To all state of the union night and I expect the state of the union to feature the president talking about space force so I have a tenant general Steve quashed former commander Air Force education training lieutenant general costs of course serve many many years in the airforce to join me to talk about that good morning general good to have you back well good morning good to hear your voice I wanna begin general with an off them off topic question I I usually spend election day because they're so doggone long I trying to movie so yesterday I went and saw a movie which surprised me a little bit call the last full measure it's about a pararescue jumper by the name of William Pynchon Berger who received the medal of honor in nineteen ninety nine after thirty years after it was in nineteen sixty six battle in which he lost his life jumping in the middle of a firefight involving big red one were you ever aware of this story were you aware of this movie it hadn't gotten any publicity at all yes I was aware of that but these are the kind of things that I pay attention to as a person who tries to protect this nation and so all of the human stories about heroes that are willing to give the last full measure are of great interest to me because the society that and genders of the kind of motivation for people to protect their values in this society that lasts it is and I am amazed that the cast in this movie Samuel L. Jackson Sebastian said Christopher Plummer and Heris I mean it the Peter Fonda just goes on and on and on and it hasn't gotten a lot of look back at the Vietnam generation you're too young for that but they deserve this kind of a movie and I hope people go and see it and I hope they learn the story of William Pitts and bart what surprised me general that I moved to space force of the nearly four thousand medal of honor that have been confirmed only three have been received by airforce enlisted man are you surprised by that well I'm not you know the the interesting thing about life and about that this habit you have going to the movies is something I'd like to propose all your listeners because for people to reflect on what's going on around them what what what this all means is really important in movies like that help tell the story about what this all means the fact that it's this many army or this many Air Force of this many navy is really immaterial what is important is that we have a cadre a group of people in the society who are willing to put on the clock defense to protect the values that has made this country great right now general want to switch to the state of the union it's going to be on in about wealth six o'clock tonight and you are eight o'clock nine o'clock tonight he's got six truck west coast presence gonna walk out there and for the first time ever I believe there will be a member of the joint chiefs of staff pouring a space force uniform am I correct in that I am assuming that that will be the case we'll see tonight when we actually a turn on our TV use that I I think that that will happen and what will you feel when you see that tonight well great pride great pride in our country at recognizing some of things that are changing around us just just as the changes that took place when we moved from the hunting gathering gardening age to the industrial age we are moving into a new network H. that is going to change life for all human beings on planet earth no matter where you live and the space forces are as at that person in that uniform is a recognition by this country that we as Americans need to lead ourselves into this new future or we will be led by somebody else now in the collection of categories of weaponry and mission but the space fourth collects will they have cyber general quash well again sometimes we get trapped into these silos of trying to assume for it predict the future of saying you are gonna do this you're going to do that the ways these take place successfully in history is when you start with new capability meaning you say what what is the problem what are we trying to do you build their capability and then you then you decide what mission that capability should should do OB otherwise what you do is you start making assumptions for the future that were true in the past and it doesn't fit and you can sometimes lose if you if you fall into that intellectual trap what I'm particularly speaking to is that each of the branches for example fly a sort of helicopter for a sort of mission that's not particular to any of the services Coast Guard S. helicopter therefore sent helicopters army as helicopters maybe as helicopters space for sits there and they have a unique mission and a new frontier do you expect them to fly helicopters or are they going to be much more focused on a particular set of instruments in a particular set of capabilities and when will we know what those are and and how they will develop right and that that's a great question and you know the reason everybody flies crafted because as we invented the airplanes the right brothers invented the airplane in nineteen oh three the world started figuring out how powerful it was to use the air to travel and to do all kinds of things communicate and and so everybody needed it and within what it was that they were trying to do the same is going to be true in space space is cell under utilized right now we we think we we work in space by having satellite fall around the earth but it is an entirely new geography so everybody will benefit from space everybody will use space out but the space force will in the future start defining what they can do that nobody else can do and that will start emerging as they build new capability so everybody will use space but only the space force will do those things that nobody else can do like for example if this involves the way I think it should be historically they should defend commerce and space so that anybody that is working as an American and space in any kind of business that is providing goodness and prosperity to our country have somebody that will protect their values protect their hard work and bring rule of law and expense of justice to that environment no I don't wanna go Star Wars honest but we don't have any capability right now to do that do we we don't have a shuttle that's flying we do have a lot of private sector initiatives in the area of space but do we have any vehicle the commander space in return well we do and that the and and they are growing and emerging more and more every day so what you're going to see is it Thomas is there we as a nation I never knew there was an ocean out there we were just on land and we were just doing our thing growing our food gathering and we discovered that there was this ocean and people started building canoes and boats and ships and the same happening here with space space is a geography of resources and potential prosperity and we are gonna explode into it as we go forward so there are something like the X. thirty seven is an example of a it's really a tiny little subtle but it can go up into space you can come back down and the lawn mosque is building the starship Jeff bass services building has aircraft that or space craft and we are literally emerging and to an age where it is going to be aviation like access to space where you can get into a space craft you can take off you can be anywhere in the world in less than an hour and back home for dinner and that will become pedestrian meaning everybody will do it just like you flying a plane get the LA to New York right now two very quick question general both about tonight's state of the union what is the relationship with NASA between the space force enough there and what do you expect the president to say about space force and or about NASA tonight or what would you like him to say well I I think I would like the president to remind the American people of this this this power of understanding what is going on around us and what is going around us on around this is technology is changing world power and we are moving into a new realm where space is going to change the way we deliver energy and information and and to remind the American people that going forward with the space force is a way for America to late because some civilization will lead into this new ocean of prosperity and historically whoever lead into that new area well defined the values and I want the values of free speech a quality human right and life and liberty I do not want to I do not want the values that we see being imposed on those in Hong Kong or the Uighurs I I want American values in this new prosperous economy because we value and respect human life general clients thank you for joining us lieutenant general Steve cross former commander Air Force air education and training command expert in space force thank you for bring in some perspective for the state of the union tonight of course I have most of the key state of the union tomorrow and maybe by tomorrow as well Wallace whatever's alter my what don't hold your breath let's talk a little bit about why Joe Biden collapsed first of all you gotta understand yesterday morning Joe picked a bad time to go on the today show and sort of melt down with Savannah Guthrie cut number two has it occurred to you that there's a certain irony here that has the president is accused seven is that knowledge wanting to get information about your son hunter in his dealings with Ukraine and this process of impeachment has ensured that everyone knows about hunters dealings with Ukraine no one's found anything wrong with his day was a crazy except they say such a bad image what do you agree that a sense about him and my son said that do you

Stairstepping Your Way to SaaS with Christopher Gimmer

"I'm rob today with Chris Gamer. We're here to share our experiences to help you avoid with the mistakes we've made welcome back to the show. Thanks for joining me this week. Pretty interesting story this week. Christopher Dimmer did talk at microcosm starter back in April and and he and his co founder really stair stepped. They launched an APP that had one time sales. It was a marketplace. They grew that to where it plateaued. which wasn't isn't enough that they could live on and they saw an opportunity and started almost like a beat AC- type stock photo site not but kind of beat a small B.? And then use that to parlay into Sassa. So I don't want to Belabor it because we get into Chris's entire experience in the interview and one thing I really. We like about Christmas story. Is that he and his co founder. They learned small things. I and they didn't try to go play in the major leagues. When they didn't have the skills to do that they went and played little league and then they went and played high school ball and they played college ball and they played minor leagues and then they played major leagues? And that is that repeatable. Meticulous disciplined way that I've always believed in starting startups. It's not trying to raise hundreds of millions and take this big gluck shot that you may or may not have the skills or the confidence or the whatever to do but after listening to Christmas story you know that. Even if he were to his company today that he has a skill set that he can take with him to the next thing to the next thing and it becomes this these repeatable startups building real products selling them to real customers for real money so without further ado. Let's dive into our conversation. Christopher plummer thank you so much for joining me on the show today. Thanks for having me. We're here today. Data talk about snape your startup. That's at snape. Dot Com and your headline is Create Online graphics in a snap whip up graphics for social media ads blogs and more. Even if you're not aw graphic designer you did talk about nine months ago at Microcosm Star and it was a really interesting tale of your journey with your co founder across six or seven years multiple APPs to how you got to where you are today where snape you were just talking before the call that you expect to hit a million dollars dollars in a are in the next month or two. So congratulations on that base for much and snape you guys launched it in November of two thousand fifteen. You had four thousand dollars mirror. The end of the first month is that right. Yes so we had built up a bit of a a a list before we officially launch and we had you know kind of like Beta period so we had an audience launch to and then yeah within a month of launching we did hit about four thousand dollars. Mr which is off so good and we're going to dig in to that in this episode about how you got there and how you Kinda parlayed stair stepped your way up multiple APPs. It's a pretty pretty interesting story. And by April Twenty nineteen which again was about nine months ago. You guys were at Abou Sixty Two K.. Mara that's what you mentioned in the talk and then you're just about to hit the magic eighty three thousand three hundred thirty three dollars and thirty three cents and for those who aren't in. No that is one million air art which is a mark. It's it's a funny. It sounds odd when you say the Mirror but in eras is so cool to say. Yeah I run a seven-figure business you looking forward to that day. Yeah I mean it's it's something that I remember when Marcus is my co-founder and I remember when we first started snap. Were like man. If we can just get to ten Kate Mara like lifelessly magical goal and then you know obviously you end up hitting that and then you know everyone just talks about the Melania rare in the seven figures and so kind of once. We you vera kind of fulltime on snape and we're making a living off it that kind of next yardstick for I mean super arbitrary but it was always like. Yeah I'd love to get to about millionaire are so we'll we'll definitely celebrate what when we hit Most likely next month yeah. That's cool. Do you have plans of of what you'll do are you. When you're co-founder remote or able to get together and have a glass of champagne together? We both live in Ottawa. Were pretty much best friends so we hang out a quite a bit so oh yeah well we might do something special planned exactly. What yet? But we'll definitely do something good. Yeah if there's anything I've learned from my wife who is folks don't know Sherry walling. She's a psychologist and she works with. Founders is to celebrate those wins because they are unfortunately few and far between and there's a lot more struggle then there is the wins and I was never. I've never been good at celebrating the winds and she has has forced me to do it. And I think it's a good thing for everybody and frankly the wind is not it. Just you and your co founder. It's like take your wife out to dinner. Your your fiancee out to a great dinner or on a great trip or not. That's the thing it's like. The whole family had had to put up with me when I was growing my APP. I'm sure your girlfriend now. Fiancee S to had to put up with a lot of crap from you as well. So it's like I. I think we all deserve to kind of have have those winds when they come amen. Yeah definitely show. She'll be excited to hear that. Totally something about your story I it lines up with both stair stepping that I talk about a lot but also so this concept of this quote that I keep doing things in public creates opportunity. You went through multiple APPs to get to where you are now and you had one in two thousand twelve. That's kind of unrelated but in two thousand thirteen where you launched Bootstrap Bay two thousand fourteen twenty fourteen okay and that was a theme marketplace get place for bootstrap which is a framework. And tell me about how you guys thought like what the goal was there in launching. That was it. We WanNA launch launch a business very much. The the dream of all of us. It's to get to the point where it's supporting US fulltime. Yeah that was definitely the goal of stripe as so mark in La so we actually elite. Were both working in the in the government. That's that's how we met and it's funny because we were related to the youngest guys in the office and you know naturally we just started hanging hanging out and and became friends and then one day like mark had kind of pulled me into his office and he's like they wanna see something and it was. It was almost a zillow type of website like a real estate website. And I was like well. You can actually program like I. I had no idea because he was doing something unrelated at work. And so that kind of kicked off like the journey him just trying to figure stuff out and see if we can launch a business that could enable us to quit our jobs so so yeah the goal of bootstrap it was It was just a something that we could do while we're still working our jobs full-time and hopefully the the the idea was that that we can make enough money from it as that. We can quit angle fulltime on. It wasn't necessarily like a project like super passionate about and that we were planning on running for the next ten or twenty years. That's interesting so why started as a marketplace where you have essentially buyers and sellers rather than build out a bunch of your own themes themes and just sell it sell them like basically you're a digital product company instead of a marketplace. Yeah so essentially funny enough you would started breeding Keyword Research Seo and initially. We're actually looking for things that we can drop ship. Or whatever and then market con assembled across oss the bootstrap beans Putra templates as a keyword. which was getting a lot of search volume and at the time didn't have crazy competition like theme forest and even have its its own bootstrap category and there was kind of one major marketplace at the time which was which was called rat bootstrap? I think it's still really big today. And for variety reasons and and being super naive we thought like Oh. We can build something better uh-huh so in order to see the marketplace you know mark had kinda designed the first I like three or four themes but we thought it would be more salable if we were able to get other seem authors on board and kind of add more supply to the marketplace a good place than we can generate on her own. So that's kind of how it happened. WAS BOOTSTRAP Bay a successful business. Like can you give us an idea of how much revenue abroad and for you. So the the peak month was I think it was doing about like eight to ten K.. Or something so once we paid out like all the theme authors something I think we're profiting may be four K.. or or something so it was maybe a decent like side-hustle business but we essentially got to the point where we're having trouble growing strictly through Seo and because our margins and the lifetime value wasn't high enough we just couldn't put any money into a paid ads and we just started plateauing towing after a year and we knew it was gonna be an uphill battle in there which was kind of why we we started thinking about other stuff that we could orange. Yeah yeah no recurring revenue and the funnel is only so wide right. There is only so many people searching for for bootstrap themes and the other problem was like had mentioned the the tall marketplace could place. And as you know like first mover and this is something I learned out for. The fact is when you're kind of the dominant marketplace and you've got the first mover advantage is just so hard to due to unseat them so we we were ranking like number two or three and and the number one guy was just cleaning up so we we knew it was going to be a really really really tough battle and one that we didn't really want to keep fighting

Don Johnson on His New Film 'Knives Out'

"This is popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie now that is a WHO Dunnit of sorts but to me. It's the most fun that I've had at the movies movies this year. It's called knives out. And one of the stars is my guest today. Don- Johnson here especially little torture chamber. We Ah the black inside the black kind event also. Well people confess when they sit in this chair. I'll tell you anything anything. Anything he wanted to unburden yourself on. This is a you know I'm I'm ready. I'm ready to just leave. Just push the button. Okay Yeah who did it. No I is a movie that actually begins with the murder but it's not like we know anything well. The interesting thing is is that in the first ten ten minutes you see the actual death actual murder you see and so without knowing without knowing what you're meant to see or what what what you know there. And then you spend the next COUPLA hours having a blast watching these incredibly beautifully flog people entitled I really it just Hilarious it's Christopher amherst character that murdered right and he's having his eighty fifth birthday and yes this all star cast including you. I looked at that movie into any one of these bastards could adopt. Yeah that cast. Is You know the the interesting thing that happened. Is that when we got together to make this movie. It all came together pretty fast and we we arrived in. We shot out of south side of Boston towards Wellesley in this in that house in a big mansion. Yeah and and We all had these new enormous trailers not more than two hundred yards away from the house. we never used them. All we did was as we go downstairs in the basement of this house and we'd picked a room a lot like this a lot more friendly but I had a little more humor to it not much but we would sit around and tell stories about the movies. We'd done it asked you know I'd asked Daniel Daniel Daniel Craig about you know what. Tell me about that stunt and tell me what you know about about this and that and he had asked me about things that that We had done Christopher plummer summer and and I've known Christopher for a long time we we held down a couple of barstools and in San Francisco. I'm not shocked. And that and Jamie Lee Curtis who plays. You're pissed. Oh she he's still see. Well I worked out pretty well because she plays my wife and the thing and I showed up for work she started bossing me around and I said okay. Why not and captain? America's your son Chris Evans. Yeah this normal. Sure everybody's just hanging out there that hey birthplaces and there's a lot of movies that I see sometimes where I think the actors actors are having a great time. But I'm not in this case it's red from what you guys were doing to the audience when we see I know it's infectious. It really is. Yeah and that's harder actually think you know the the the the extraordinary extraordinary thing about this We didn't have a table read. We didn't rehearse we just showed up on the first day and you no. It's not an uncomplicated. No people have to and so we showed up on the first day. And we we start to go and I and and I hit a I hit the tone that I think is right. and Lo and behold Jamie Lee tosses the ball back to me and Scott the same tone and then we started to roll and everybody else sort of you know did their thing and we kind of brought that sense of joy in and in the moment to the to the to the to the To two knives out and I think that that's what you feel. I think that that joy in that fun kind of ride is what you feel like. You're lifted up. But it has a very contemporary temporary kind of spin on it. Yeah you should explain Richard who is a bit of a rat bastard. Yeah well they're they're all horrible people there are they are but he. He is kind of the personification of the Great. I loved him because he doesn't do. Anything doesn't have a job. AUB doesn't do anything he just you know. He's the personification of entitled because he lives off of His wife in the family and all that stuff I sort of played him like a like a one of those country club sizes. Just kind of walking around with half a buzz on over time. It is whatever you want but yeah people you need to see this. And when they do they can thank us for it. I can thank you. You're welcome. You're welcome bureaus. It's a good time and then I have to bring this up too because it's so great is watchman on HBO. You know I've seen you do a lot of great things things right from the beginning. You know even Miami Vice where when people think of it now and they think of how you're dressed and the style that you had and the suits the cheese and the t shirts and the whole deal no socks yeah started a complete fashion trend but that was a really good show. Yeah I was a little ignoring by in the beginning when there's Oh it's just fluff at style over substance and I was going well not so fast you know we we managed to get had some you know a golden globe. And you're gone. What does that mean? It's true But yeah no I've I've been fortunate in that I've had some Some meaty parts get to play over the years and I just think I mean you'll show Abo thing is is is ah trip. Sorry to interrupt with that Help the the the the writer creator of Damon Lindelof was I think I gave him his first job on Nash Bridges. You don't quite remember no way I mean I know that I I saw now I see. Yeah Yeah and then he went on of course to To do lost and forgiving him. No no no. He's true they should. I should be getting away. From all guys Sean Ryan and Carlton Carlton Cues and all the I mean. So many people came out of that That little incubator. I had gone up there. Those shows Nash Bridges and Miami. I swear long running shows which you're playing cops and I remember hearing you do an interview once and said I'm done with that you know and here you are as sheriff drugged God. You Judge Judge for judge hanging around the hanging around. But there's something in that role on. I know I get killed if I say anything too much about it but you know we probably both would. Well you'd be specially killed but I don't know how you get killed yeah to do this. But it's such a wonderfully complex charming character Thank you might have many many other level the NFL. What's happening? Yeah well when I see an emmy nomination for that too in your future Oh bless your heart. Don't vote for the Emmy Okay. So it's useless. I think you know every listen every reality start somewhere with a rumor. Okay talk to John. You heard it here therefore I give you know I'm not getting it's make it happen. Yeah that is a lot of fun to do too because it was. I didn't have a character who can be sitting at a family dinner and get up and do Rogers and Hammerstein and make everybody feel. I WANNA be around this guy. It was just very ballsy and Fabulous to what you know. That's the way I felt about it because Damon column. He wrote me this beautiful letter and of course if you want an actor's attention you just write him a letter and tell him how great he is and you've got his undivided attention. I guaranteeing I don't care who it is. It's like Kryptonite right. You know. Start Bragging on an actor and telling them how great they are. They'll do anything and I fell victim to that. He came in. Yeah Yeah you're the God. And so he Lewis. Is this Lewis right walk on. I love it but he asked me to come in and he told me he kinda told me that story. The sort of long grades plans for for watching it. I don't think he wanted to scare me off so he didn't. He didn't tell me the whole thing but he told me enough and I and I kind of felt like well. I'm in on the joke and I like that. You know and and I also think that it's an interesting thing to have My fans wouldn't expect it no one expects and it's kind of A. It's kind of like one of those things where I can get away with that these days where maybe couldn't before

I was the red carpet action pretty good pretty fun lot of color you know from the men and the women we love a color jacket. I'm I'm trying to do my best like Juliana ransack because it working your calendar at all you know mercilessly Nicolas Coster Waldo. They just like did the goal they are in Green. Yeah he looked really good. He looks great seen him look bad but I drew this award show as he does in every single still of photography taking him ever Israel. Where's the talks really well of any family well. It's a gift Lotta Pink and red dresses which I liked all of them. I think we were talking about just looks like a huge. Valentine onstage dynasty chic which I was into like Mandy Moore could've just like stepped off like an eighty soap op right and that's what I want for my fashion. We also have to Raji. GP Henson Great Yeah. All three of them have either watch dialing Hollywood on Netflix but I've heard it's really good it is really good and like the the first three episodes center around Dang Raji Henson's emmys dress code and yes this last year okay because Jason Baldness her stylist stylist and they're really good friends to show and so I was just thinking styling Hollywood and season two can't wait to hear about distress. They held it shadow styling Hollywood. One of Netflix few wins tonight. flicks yeah slow for them kind of great. Let's commercials now. ozark night were their networks commercials which wines the breaking bad movie. Yes that's true the Camino last hour. There were a few three just kept seeing the new netflix seven million. Leeann streaming sites now and there were commercials for all of them and there's a lot of apple plus huge. I feel like it anyway back to fashion. I also might think probably my favorite was purchase. There's Clarkson. She did like blonde more tissue atoms which is real kate everything you want from purchase. Clarkson ever but yeah it was great never looked great. We all oh really Zendaya so late though like we didn't really see your until she walked out in glasses she present which was fabulous. She's got the marvel money and she's a cool kid. So Oh yes you need to get there early. That's true. Actually she doesn't have marvel money anymore. Right right YEP per spiderman series is dead. Maybe they only mice. I'd still like to you see how that's ultimately resolved but yeah we know about that stuff too. I WANNA share that Kid Harrington who I generally have no interest in as John Snow or in real life but I thought he looks phenomenal Q. Like the Best I've ever seen him. Maybe yes maybe the best never looked tie really channeling Richard Madden which was a great look for him also recommended not show which was Sassou. Ask You guys see what Richard Man did in debt yeah bill t rex out of Lego instagram could for him huge flex. You know I'd like to nominate Emilia Clarke while around the gas are- if Valentino I I'd love to know about. I assume it's tape. That's involved in this attraction but she's wearing confidence. She looks great. I was so ready to root against I'm sorry I did but she made it a little bit more difficult than I had plans. At least you followed through my Rudolph and Michelle Williams both in floral patterns both looking great really really enjoyed that more Michelle Williams in a few minutes. I liked Natasha. Leones look also should we talk about Natasha. Leone clapping. Yeah you're cool. Kidman Adman clapping apparently it is interesting way of clapping. It is like she just learnt how a small child when you teach them how to do applies their hands together but she was consistent in it. She applauded for a lot of people which we appreciate. I really liked it. She was wearing glasses during the show. I just love glasses formal. Look look at the Oscars Golden Globes and EMMYS. It's very common and I think it's a great I would do it. Billy Puerto Ricans and also the formal yes. It's a great addition. It's fake furnished. We're on the same the same people to do it because like young always does it. Oprah as a love the former bosses Amanda. I'm happy to tell you that the Tasha Leo Gift of her clapping readily available for whenever you need that's great people are ready. I think that makes sense. I'm just going to try to do it in my own life. One more nomination. Naomi watts she looks phenomenal and black just logged in just great the new game of thrones star new game. It's just getting ready. I I liked we'll talk a lot more reckoning with routes but I like to the end of the show how David any off who is my one true love can be like and now it's over we did it and now it is over totally disavowing try to shut out any notions of the prequels and spin offs that are that are coming alright great injection positively positively we'll ride this enthusiasm into talking about the most awkward moment of evening which was allow a complicated one which was when. Phoebe Waller Bridge won on Best Actress in a comedy beating out Julia Louis Dreyfuss in her final season as Lena Meyer from beep and bridges incredibly happy. Kate was incredibly happy. Many people on the Internet were incredibly happy. Let's get this out of the way. This is a pro fleabag podcast. You're lovely about free. It's one of the best things that that I've seen in any medium in two thousand and nineteen. Maybe in the decade yet great up there yeah fix perfect episodes a season two. Yes at flawless sure but Julia Louis Dreyfus purpose is probably the best television actress of in history. Yeah I think she's like Lucille Ball and Carol channing. Yes and she had one for veep. I believe every season she had been nominated and she was going to break the record for the most emmy wins by a woman of of all time and she she is there's also a breast cancer survivor yeah and that happened between these seasons so I think we all assumed that this would be her emmy and and it was not and that's the way the cookie crumbles moreover everyone in the room assuming yes so it was like the most tepid response. It's a win from a show that is universally praised yes. I'm sure that no one's like fleabag doesn't deserve it deserve. It really sucks sucks. That's how the point just was such an incredibly awkward moment. Totally I think okay like root for history. It's like when you walk or it's and you want to see a record broken or you. You want like someone's got hot. Hand you want to leave him in the game but as long as possible like it's okay to root for history it's okay to experience that moment and it was just really awkward. Yeah and it's also a fever waller. Bridge did not really read the room in that moment. I was wondering I guess veep is maybe not a big deal in the UK. They don't care about it. They're like we have in the loop. We don't actually need the American version of IANUCCI stuff but she was like thanking her agent and I just it wasn't the note that you wanted at that. Moment also weird for her to be profusely thanking or agent given the feud between writers and agents right now. Yes weird moment. It was not mentioned once during the entire telecast now's house per day and there was a lot of ignoring everything going on TV. No one was talking about streaming services. Everyone was just you know thinking whatever likes Amazon that that helped them. A lot of Amazon wants by the way but yeah it just it. It was uncomfortable. Even though it was happy yeah it's like not undeserved served right with the moment felt wrong and it. Kinda sucks then for our bread shoes. True talent is actually Frank Kayla. I will say like she seems super for actress to me in that moment in a way. I don't like to acknowledge and I just like Oh. This is a real actress but she also had just been up there like I think it would have been different if she hadn't won anything yet yet right right right so she had just been up there. She's up there again. It's like Oh you again like everyone loves her but like it is. It would have been different than if it had just been the first win for few celebrity yeah so it's tough. It's a no win a little bit she continued to she did continue to win now. She did and it was awesome. That fleabag won best comedy. US totally detailing curling. Everyone say their favorite episode man you go first the last one I mean come on the answer here. I soon as you said that to me. I I also kind of don't think of them as discreet right so it's entirely it was just one you could put those together and it would be like one very long movie and it would be kind of perfect shorter then some worth celebrating movies kate the first episode the pilot was the second season yeah great one of the Jumpsuit Yeah Mine's the number three's Kristin Scott Thomas See Russia Kristin Scott Thurow's Jonzon hot priest socially tough but you got yeah Kristin Scott Thomas. Oh yeah that's a trade. That's funeral so many other version of one yeah one we don't talk about the new one in the really funny thing about season into fleabag is just like everyone acknowledges now including TV while our bridge how essential Andrew Scott as you play the AK Moriarty too many of us who watched Sir Lock. Yeah weird very greatest in yeah. It was really cool and she when she turned to him accepting best comedy. It was like we did this because Andrew. You're Scott came in and that was cool. It was great and also you finally got to be on stage which was good so a motive. Actually I just want to say I love back. I don't need any more Brett Gelman twenty twenty between fleabag and stranger things. Yeah Ozone Lot shred amount of everything done. We're done offense. I guess it's it's really inherently offensive thing okay moving on so that was like a low and then and then I within a low below the recovered itself yeah. Just I mean it is remarkable. It's saying that is a special as fleabag actually won the emmys. We don't see actually the best. Things don't usually win awards. That's literally every awards show and fleabag winning and phoebe Waller winning for writing. It's just like wow we did it. That's great yeah so that was good good job on this one thing good Johnson. Okay Okay Hi Michelle Williams speech amazing stuff amazing stuff. This is also what happens when you practice and you prepare and she had clearly given some thought to what she wanted to say and not. Maybe she wrote it. I'm not really sure because it was definitely well-crafted and she hit her points but it was more that she had an idea and she wanted to turn this into It's a speech about equal pay which is like something. She's been crosshairs about a lot. If you remember when they did the re-shoots for I guess it was called all the money in the world it was the Getty Nassar Getty show out of it so Kevin Spacey's the Laura for Christopher plummer and they did the re shoots her fi versus Mark Wahlberg fee. Yes she took like a daily fee and Mark Wahlberg at one point five million dollars and then it became a thanks so she I used that in order to talk about a Fosse verdant. FX And the support and what happens when you actually do support of working specifically women have car work. She just like she had the stats. That's she nailed it.

Trump to hit China with new round of tariffs

"That shocked investors tesla CEO Elon Musk. Declaring that he could take the company private word for musk came yesterday afternoon in. The form. Of a tweet and a blog post the left many questions. Unanswered Dana hall reports from our Bloomberg nine sixty newsroom in San Francisco the fact that. He wants to take tesla private is not a surprise he's talked about this in previous interviews with us there's been no SEC filing we're not sure when, there is a board vote, presumably, the, board is, on, board with this but we haven't heard from any of, them we really don't have anything beyond Ilan's tweets and the Broncos most suggested a price of four. Hundred twenty dollars a share to take tesla private that would value the company at eighty two. Billion dollars and would amount to the largest leverage. Buyout in history Wall Street is skeptical of, mosques plans Dennis garment has editor and publisher. Of the garment letter this. Is not going to happen I think this.
