S6 E2 - What does a normal transition from the military look like - FULL

"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking nuts as question is a simple one but the answer is sometimes really hard to find. The question is this. What does a normal transition from the military look like and in this episode will try to do my very best to answer this question. But i'm also going to be sharing the five steps to nailing your transition from the military and in fact i dedicated an entire chapter in my book called resolve dedicated an entire chapter to just this issue and these five steps which i've never shared outside of the book. I'm gonna share them with you here today. Oh by the way my name is ear perkins. I'm us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve which i just mentioned and resolve is a book. That is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast now. I recently posed a couple of questions to our members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group and the first question. I asked to veterans and the second. I asked to veteran family members as a hero. Those questions said veterans. What is one word. Just one now. What is one word. You would use to describe your transition from the military and then veteran family members. I asked them something very similar. What is one word. You would use to describe. Your family. members transitioned from the military. Now look i know. Only one word does not give a lot of room to explain but there was really a theme here with not just veterans but also family members and here are a few of the responses. And see if you can kind of pick out. The theme loss unprepared uncertainty anger. Hell frustrating confusing difficult. And that was just the veteran responses. Let's take a look at the family member responses chaos unsettling rocky complicated. Now when we come back. Let's see if we can unpack these responses a bit to uncover what that theme is and and learn if your transition for the military was just as normal as everyone else's stay tuned will be right back who am i. Why am i still here. I uncover who i was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my heart through the pain of job loss. Diagnosis often. Crippling anxiety finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled saw resolve is a book that is one apologetically faith-based step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other resolve provides veterans everywhere with things to help you step into your new life a life full of hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com now back to the show before the break. We covered those single word responses from members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And now i want to kind of dive in a bit and unpack those responses and hopefully once and for all answer the question probably all of us ask. Ourselves was my transition from the military. Normal was different was that the same wasn't normal. So let's take another look at those words loss. Hell complicated confusing frustrating uncertainty. You know honestly it just sounds really really rough in my own words that i kinda tag onto. My own transition is brutal now. I do everything in my power to include hosting and producing this podcast riding a book developing personal relationships with veterans serving on veterans nonprofit board. Do everything in my power. Everything i can to help veterans through the challenges of the transition. But what i found in all my. I'll say research for lack of a better term. Is that the transition is hard. Nearly one hundred percent of the time. I'm gonna say that again. The transition from the military is hard nearly one hundred percent of the time. Now that kind of brings up a follow up question right. Well what makes it hard. Is there just one specific thing or is it a combination of things. Now the truth is it probably is a combination of things. But i think there's one key element that makes the transition really really difficult and i wanna share a key insight with some practical steps that you can take on your own transition. But before i do. I want to take a quick detour here. So have you ever been driving down the road. And then you just took a short detour. Maybe you wanted to get a better lay of the land or you wanted to try out a different route to get to your destination. You're still headed your destination but maybe you just wanted a different picture. Maybe you wanted to take in the scenery. We're gonna take detour right now. Just a short little detour. And i want to detour into the meaning of the word transition. Now i don't wanna get all technical and bore you with just some definitions. But i think this is a really really key point so oxford languages defined transition as the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another for example. I'm in the middle of my transition out of the military or use another way of use it as a verb. It is to undergo or to cause to undergo a process or period of transition for example for talking about a war time scenario. We have transitioned from a high intensity combat operations role to a support role in the community. Now why do. I even bring that up. Why even take this detour. One that address. A misconception about transitioning from the military and the misconception is this that the transition from the military is nothing more than just another event in your life. That's the misconception that the transition from the military is just another event. So let's take a look at some of those events in our lives. You're born that's an event you graduated from high school. That's an event you got a job. That's an event you got married. That's an event even if you've been married more than once. Each marriage is another event. You had a child. That's an event you had another child. That's another event. So all those things i just mentioned are all single events. You don't have the same child twice. you don't get the same job twice you. Don't get married to the same person on the same day twice. So all of these are single events. And there's this kind of expectation that the transition will also be just a single event in the transition or rather the end state or the end goal that we're shooting for is not even clearly defined so when someone says transition from the military it can mean one hundred different things you ask one hundred people you get one hundred different answers. Since transition is not clearly defined in that context or another words. We don't even know what the target is. We're supposed to be aiming for. It's impossible to know whether we've successfully transitioned out so it makes sense. Then that people are saying gosh is hard. This is lost. This is hell. This is confusing is uncertain. This was brutal because we don't have any clear indication of whether we have been successful at it or not and the truth is transition isn't event but it's also journey so you do transition out when you hang up that uniform for the final time that's the event but you will continue to learn what you want your post military life to look like and that's the transition journey so now begs another question or another few questions is the target of the transition out of the military is the target targeted good job. Is it one hundred percent disability rating. Is it the approval to use vocational rehab Benefits for education. Is it something else entirely. What is the target when a service member leaves the military and frankly a as great as the cat program. Those transition programs the military are. I think that's where the military failed every single one of us. And i'm not trying to be the disgruntled veteran here because there's a lot of things that the military va do really well but setting us up for success in the transition is just not one of those and i think they failed us. Big time they said. Hey here's some benefits you could be eligible for. Here's some things you might wanna check out. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your life. There's no explanation of what your targets are or even should be so. I posed that question to you right now. How do you define transitioning from the military. What are the targets if you want to respond to send me message. Podcast at courage to fight again dot com. Let me know all right. So let's get back on track here. So i mentioned i wanted to share with you. One key insight into the why behind transition difficulty and i think the first and perhaps the most is what i just talked about in our detour. We're flying blind and we have no concept of the new target what it is where it is in fact. There's a quote in the book. I wrote resolve. That goes no one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until. I figure it out. Excuse me until first figuring out. Where was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was. They wanted to go all right. So here's those five steps. I promise you begin the episode step one. The and again these steps are key to nailing your transition from the military and these are just part of the resolve book. This is only one chapter step. One is cast the vision. Where do you want to be a year from now. Two years five years from now. Now mind this idea of you know where you want to be can fall into a variety of categories and maybe it's physical or career or relationships or va disability or post nine eleven gi bill. It could be a variety of things but one technique is to consider a single category. Let's take finance for example and let's say your goal is i want to be completely out of debt and i want to do that within five years now. That leads us into step two. We've we've got the single category that we're targeting one part of our lives or not being overly vague and saying i want to have more money are wanted to have more financial independence or i want to be a better person or went to be healthier. We're creating a specific goal in specific category over lives. And that's our vision right. I want to be out of debt completely out of debt within five years so that leads us into step to list out the challenges or the risks associated with achieving your vision of getting out of debt now for example maybe to use our example. We're in here. The financial financial say financial peace. That's daveramsey thing right To say like. I want to be completely out of debt within five years. Maybe you're living beyond your means right now or perhaps you and your family preferring higher standard of living so your normal expenses are higher. Nothing wrong with that but it could be a risk to achieving your vision within five years. Or maybe you've gone through a divorce in you're paying child support. Or maybe you're taking care of an elderly parent or an ageing parent so anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe. You're lauding for it. I'm going to say that again. Anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe you're allotting for it brings us to step three risk mitigation. There are several examples. I use in the book but what it boils down to. Is you sitting down either by yourself or with a group of other veterans who are also on this resolve journey. Where you're working through the book together but sitting down and coming up with a strategy of how you will mitigate those risks brings you to step four. Get feedback get feedback. Your perspective on your situation is unique. But it's only one perspective reach out to someone you trust. Share your vision with them and get their perspective on your vision and just a little side note. That is why the book resolve is created for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans. So you don't have to go out and search for those people you trust. You don't have to say men. Who do i ask you. Just talk to those who are going through the journey with you and finally step five experienced peace. Now i know it probably sounds like i'm over simplifying things a bit and into this more in the book but one thing i want to point out here is as we bring the show in for landing comparing your vision to someone else's is not going to help and in fact it could potentially make you even more uncertain about your own vision that you've cast for your life. Look where all different we have different skills. Different experiences different aptitudes in. We aren't all going to have the same vision and the sooner you embrace that the sooner you can experience the peace that comes from being your own path and making strides toward achieving that vision sir question today. Was your transition normal. Here's the answer if it was easy and you slip from wary uniform to not wearing a uniform with no significant issues. And you're like wow. This was great. Could couldn't couldn't have been better than no. Your transition was absolutely not normal but if it was hard like it was nearly every single one of us then yes. Your transition was absolutely. I hope this helps. I hope it helped answer the question. Did i answer the question. Did i not. What are your questions record voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast courage to fight again. Dot com more joined the post nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And post your question there. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. Them only comes through faith in jesus price whilst you right back here two weeks from today and the next veteran question we'll be doing our best to answer is this. What is the. Va solid start program. If you liked this leave survive star review on. I tunes help so much until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

How to Know Exactly What to Work on in 2021

"One of the biggest mistakes i've done in the past and i've seen a lot of entrepreneurs do is if they have too many goals right they try to achieve too many things and therefore they don't know what to work on. They don't know what takes priority. They say that everything's important. We want to have a bigger market. Share we wanna grow more customers. We want to be more profitable. You wanna have more revenue. We wanna lower costs. They want more free time. They won't more Autonomy they want to hire more people they say all the stuff we wanna do all and this is what makes it difficult to choose what to work on because certain things will help you which one of these goals. But the things won't this makes it difficult for you to know what to work on. Because you don't know what takes precedent what resources you need to spend or us on tasks or projects. It can get really overwhelming. So i want to challenge you as we start this year to reevaluate. What your goal is for this year. A want you to choose one goal one focus for the entire year. I mentioned this before. This is something. I learned from. Noah kagan who was employee thirty facebook and he learned this from mark zuckerberg and facebook. They have a singular goal. Now that goal may change from one year to the next before the year. that's all they focus on one singular goal for them. It was growth for them. When noah was there as employees thirty it was getting as many users on the platform. Now what's great about. This is that any time they make a decision what to work on the just have to ask the question. Does it help achieve their singular goal. If it does they do if they don't they don't now of course it's going to be a lot of gray area in between we'll talk about that in a moment how to evaluate. What are things will get closer to that goal or not but none of this is possible if we have too many goals and it's a lot easier if you just choose one goal now this is where the fun part comes. You get to choose what you want from this year. No remember next year you can choose a different goal but just choose one. What is the one thing that if you achieved it would make twenty two one success for your business. Maybe you want to take home on more profitable. So profitability is our goal maybe actually your array profitable and you're really happy with that level profitability. And now you wanna make your goal reaching more people so growth. If you're let's say your fitness coach you want to double the amount of people impact now as you could see. I'm choosing goals. That are quite broad but at the same time they're specific to a certain outcome so be careful. Don't choose things like. I want to improve my blog. Well why do you want to prove was wrong with the right now. Well i wanted to be like this. Why do you want it to be like this. Well i wanna attract new customers. What's the point of attracting new customers. While i want them to convert wanna grow my customer base so is growth customer growth. Really what you're looking for. That's really the goal because Improving your blog is a task right. It's one of the tasks you my focus on this year to help you with growth but really improving. The blog has an end goal. Really go deep. What's the end goal. So now that we have one goal one focus for the year We make that a big bold statement. This is what we're shooting for. Okay now there's a ton of things you can do to achieve a particular goal. Let's say for example We're gonna use facebook's growth goal. They want to bring in as many users as many customers as possible. They have users because they don't really sell a product they sell advertising. But the point here is that. Let's say you're trying to bring in as many customers as possible now. Remember if that's the goal you're willing to do things to achieve that goal meaning may be lowering your prices to get more customers or running more sales or more offers or doing partnerships or spending money on marketing. See the point here by something. Are you going to spend something to get that ultimate goal so your goals growth. Let's say what are the things that you can do this year in your business to help grow your usery's to bring more customers in one of those things might be. I wanna start a youtube channel. One could be. I want to create a free course on my website so people can opt in get on my email list and convert them into customers in other one might be marketing campaign. Where i'm gonna do weekly deals on my products and services another might be. I'm gonna launch an affiliate program. So i can get to bring in customers for me so these are just a list of projects that you can just do a brain dump in document the title. Today is lessons. What do you work on. But we're really specifically. What are you work on now. Next all that kind of stuff. So i'm gonna tell you what year do with this list if you have a team and if your soul preneurs let's start with team and this is a concept that we borrowed from the people at basecamp jason freed and david hammer hanson or the team members ryan singer wrote a book cults shape up a highly recommended if you're in the software business but it's their way to decide what to work on to improve the product product management but the concepts in there can be applied to any business and while it console wanna share with you today. They'll help you choose. Is this idea of pitching and betting ideas. So for example i wore ninja. We have a goal and we have a list of ideas of ways. We can achieve duggal new features new initiatives all that kind of stuff and people in the management team are responsible for creating a pitch for each idea. So each of us will take on two or three pitches. What does the pitch. It's basically a message aka document Inside a base camp that just really advocates for why we should do this task why we should take on this project so for example somebody might say you know if we want to grow our customers. We have free plan. So they'll you know right up a few paragraphs put some thoughts. Maybe some sketches and say you know what this is why. I think we should work on the free plan I or next. And everybody will do their pitches and will throw them into basecamp which is a project management tool and we'll all read these pictures and then one day we meet together on a video call and we do what's called. The betting table is what they call in shape the bedding table and allows us to bet we get to our for what we should and should not do as a team we collectively say you know what these tasks are the most effective things we can do to get a sore goal and in this exercise as a team we discover which things we should do first second third throughout the year. Because we're gonna work on the things that were going to move the needle. The most i now even if you don't have a team maybe it's just you. Maybe your solar moore. You can still. Do you. Still write down your ideas. Ri- some details about these ideas. Why you think they can help your business. This exercise of advocating for this idea and writing it out. It's not just for fun okay. It's not just to go through the procedure by writing things out it forces you to really think about. Is this really something that's going to help. Not just on the surface ideas on the surface. All seem all k. They seem like good ideas but often when we have to defend these ideas and explain why they can really allow us to achieve our goals or our singular goal. In this case we start to realize Maybe there are other things that are better to do. Maybe not as an effective ideas. I thought it was. Or maybe it's a good idea but it's a nice to have not a must have so even if you are solar newark right down the reasons why these ideas should be implemented and then once we have all these pitches for yourself you can score each pitch from one to ten one. Being least effective and ten is most effective in terms of achieving your goal. This will allow you to at least have a rough way to kind of score each pitch and then order them based on how effective they can be to help you achieve We're looking to do year.

New York Hospitals Slow To Comply With New Price Transparency Rule That Took Effect This Month

"Price transparency rule that went to effect this month. The federal role requires hospitals to publicly disclose what they charge for each service treatments can vary depending on which hospital someone visits and what insurance plan they have. Gothamist reporter Caroline Lewis says So far only the city's public hospital system has made the disclosures while others claim to still be working on it. There is a penalty for not complying of up to $300 a day, but many people are saying that that's not enough and summers saying that they will need to suffer. Reputational consequences if they don't comply. And maybe that would help. The American Hospital Association says there are still gaps on how to meet the new requirements and that many hospitals are overburdened by the pandemic.

Plaid plans European hiring spree despite Visa deal falling apart

"Clad and visa have ended plans for their monster merger almost a year after it was announced visa has cooled off. Its deal to buy fintech plaid for five point. Three billion dollars off to the us department of justice sued to block the transaction on antitrust grounds. We're confident we would have prevailed in cooled as plaid's capabilities. A complimentary to these is not competitive. Said al kelly chief executive when the deal was announced in january. Twenty twenty mr. Kelly said it would put the combined company at the epicenter of the fintech world but the doj moved to block the deal in early november arguing. That visa had chosen to a quiet plod because it was developing payments platform that would challenge visa dominance in the sector. Zach perry plaid. Ceo says it has only just begun will also stating it grew. Customers by sixty percent added hundreds of banks to the platform recently So ouattara thoughts on this. I suppose i double on the doj's decision. They made the right decision And then on top of what you think is next applied and indeed for visa you know visas strategists the scott. What's it gonna do instead Who wants to confessed on this one. I have no obvious. Talk on the story bradley. I'll go straight to you oklahoma. Dj positioning oversee. This was a memo. I think the visa describing is future competitor. But it's kind of like if you look at shell or chevron will be one of the big oil and gas guys if they go and invest heavily all by one of the renewable energy providers without be something the doj against odin think. so so. i don't view necessarily a competition. It definitely is an aggressive move would have been by visa. I'm but it's not. Apples to apples. Is competing new way of paying the more. Traditional banking rails. I'm it wasn't than buying competing conference. That i think would have been than trying to own their own. Their own immedi system. So i'm sure agree. With the ruling on deeply never went cold so almazo writes Will arenas once it's interesting time. Isn't it broadly. The famous volcano picture was the Was was the that was mentioned and this idea that plot was gonna move in that direction. The doj's argument was always that will fees is nearly sixty sixty five percent market share in the us. It's clearly dominant position if they're acquiring something that could compete with the very called rails itself then. A potential competitive type was being taken off the table and visa would continue to own a even if the rails would move from called to something that was more account based are the question to your point as to whether or not that was ever going to happen but certainly in a lot of the country. I've seen online In the past a couple of days and days since cisco announced on twitter a lot of the vc community is sort of saying it looks like plot themselves may have been motivated to terminate this because five billion dollars for a for an api data company. Seems like a really big price when visa. I pays it. But it's a testament to why we are infantile. That plot could probably got a better deal. I'm and actually the growth in neo biking and challenging ranking during the pandemic has been so astonishing that why wouldn't plod to go somewhere else and could they built mobile themselves than they cut on the on. The visa's umbrella suddenly seems like fintech. Twitter is very very bullish homeless firm plots perspective. I'm but then also people who all big funds of visa think. This is a good move for them as well because it kind of moves them away from being They were always very friendly with the banks kind of the position with the big banks. They have a great relationship. Plods account dates are access is not very well liked by a lot of the major. Us banks indeed. Many of them have been trying to block access to screen scraping together on direct deals in place and that might be one of the biggest threats in plots business model so visas business just gets a lot clearer. All of a sudden plot may be able to go onum become that competitor or something else so a good result all around personally

Plant of The Week: Bristlecone Pine

"With a plan of the week mark is one that is of structure it is a good nature. And it's very specially grown here at my house. It is one of the oldest plants on earth as far as anybody knows they're they're assuming that between four and seven thousand years old. They won't even tell the public where the tree is out on the west coast and then there are others in the two thousand to four thousand year range. I don't know who can tell anybody's been living. That long probably is not able to write much but at the same time they can do borings they can do various tests bristlecone pine is normally in the eight to twenty foot. Now that makes it a small tree for for your consideration also on rare occasion given extreme age they'll hit up into the fifty foot plus range but very very very slowly. I happen to have one that It was ready unique. It fell off the truck when it was delivered to the nursery but forty years ago. and it's Got badly broken onside matter of fact or one side off so all of a sudden now. There's a plant this just The one eighty part. I thought well. Now here's the chance. I took it home brought it home. I finished proper pruning of it. And i planted on a west facing brick wall between my porch and garage door. It is presently now mrs about a forty year period. It's presently standing. Maybe six and a half to seven feet tall. It is leaning against the brick wall. The west afternoon sun gives it the brilliant son that it needs. Then it's the hang which. I was delighted with the way. It took a hold It's it's pretty dry. Under most overhangs and with sufficient inadequate initially it took a whole and it grew like crazy about four inches a year. and that that's one of the beauties of it it's a rather Sculptured tree now you. You could look at that as a well. Let you say any of several words for recommendations. But it's irregular it's decorative and in my case. I've trimmed it to stay along the wall now. It isn't much to trim probably every other year. I have to be sure nothing on the side. Branches are sticking out beyond about ten inches from the wall. I don't want it to be able to pull itself away from the wall. Should we get snow or ice. Or whatever on it I have only anchored in two places over the long haul and rest of. It is handled with pruning and i won. One landscape showed up at my house a long time ago and was lamenting the fact that he needed to plant exactly like that and i said well you can have mine at the right price. Yeah he said. What's the right price. And i told him and he said okay. I'll have a truck here monday morning. Whoa whoa not serious. Not certain beauty now you can grow it. let's just say you're regularly It does require son and then the beauty of it is you. Don't handle darn near any soil now not not excessively wet by any means it prefers out west growing it well. The big one is untold is a very rocky gravelly soil. Sandy When it rains which is not too often it will soak up enough water down deep enough that the roots can stay alive until the next rain which may be a whole year or some portion thereof so anyhow a very tolerant plant very very interesting and I highly recommend it. But don't don't don't plan where you need to get screening from the neighbor in short order because it isn't going to happen that way.

"Training" a Bristlecone Pine

"Why tell you what the the first time. I came over to your house. I saw that.

I'd be glad to. And and i can't take much credit for it. All i did was bring home a broken and lean it against the wall and treatment about area other year to keep it against the wall. So that's the technique. I use now. Can you just go to a nursery in by a bristlecone or special order kind of thing. No you won't find so many of them like you would a scotch pine or white buying or whatever but you definitely can get them. They're they're Will now because they are so darned slow. To make up growth you will be paying a higher price for that When you think of pine in the scotch and white pine range of cost no you're going to be a good bit more than that however it is already an old plant Is one of many shapes You won't find it conical or spreading. You'll find it both and it If you don't find it easily right now it'd be an excellent time to talk to your garden center or a nursery person in your community and ask them to order wanted or or some and they. They should have some on hand at all times. 'cause it's really quite an interesting plant Except if you wanted for major streaming along a property

We've actually work with emily's company hirsch marketing during some of our past launches to manage our facebook ads and they definitely delivered. Alright so please help me. Welcome my guest emily. Well hey there. Emily welcome to the show. Yea thanks for having me. Oh i'm so happy you're here and before we get started. Why don't you give just a brief introduction to what hersh markings all about. Yeah so hirsch. Marketing is an ad agency. We specialize in facebook and instagram ads. And we specifically help people with courses and coaches people selling online digitally their products or their services. And i've got a team of about twenty two people all over the us than we do. Both running the ads than also teaching how to do it in our in our other product. Twenty two people. Is that what you said. Yeah i've got twenty two employees and then a couple contractors that is impressive. I have about twenty as well and you're a lot younger than me. So i've been in business longer and it took me a long time to build up a team like that. I feel like you have grown so quickly so fast and like the best way possible. Would you agree. Yes and growing team is like and as you know twenty people it really pushes you to grow as an individual i share so yes does it. Humbly oh my goodness like if you wanna know all your fault as a leader in all the areas need to really strengthen go ahead and build the big team that will do it or you know yeah exactly going the teams the hardest thing i've ever done. That could be an imam. Okay hey manchester event. I hear ya okay. So we've got a lot to cover today and you have five of the most common mistakes that you see entrepreneurs make when they're growing their business with facebook ads now facebook. Ads is a hot topic with my audience. Whether it be my newbie students are going at it with their first launch and they might want to dabble with this book ads or those that are in their second third and beyond launch. That wanna go really really deep with ads and do a great job usually on their own to start out with and then they looked to an agency so i would love to dive into all of these mistakes. So why. don't you kick us off with mistake. Number one yeah so the first mistake is before you even get to the ads. Peace that so many people miss over whether you're of beginner and you've never run ads. But i've also talked to seven figure business owners who skip over this and continued to not do it because it's so easy to miss and that's not defining what success means for their marketing. So what that really looks like is. What's your budget and how much you're going to make from that budget and a lot of times people kinda pull out like i think spend thousand dollars in see what happens and what. I encourage in really want people to do it. Encourage you to do to get the most out of what you spend is say over the next. Let's say thirty days. I wanna make this many sales which equals this many dollars and then working backwards and deciding from that what your investment is because if you go into ads in your kind of just like picking a number and then seeing what happens what will happen is you'll start running ads in. You'll say things. Like i have no idea if this is working or not. I have no idea where to put my time in energy to get to work and then end up just turning your ads off in waiting. A few months in china have seen that play out so many times so before you even start ads weather. Like i said you're a beginner. You're intermediate your advanced. You need to go into it knowing this is exactly my budget is exactly my sales goals. So that when you start running ads you're able to kind of pick it apart in. See what isn't isn't working and you defined what that success is for yourself just like you've never tried to do something without maybe setting a goal of what that is like you say i wanna get healthy. What does that mean to you. Same with ads. If you wanna run ads what is a successful ad campaign. Look like for you and then it should be based on numbers. Okay so this is such a great place to start. Because i know what my students and my listeners are thinking right now especially if they've never ran ads they'll say okay me. I know how much money i wanna make with. Let's say my first digital course launch or even my second digital launch but they don't understand or know yet how much they should budget for ads. They're like well. How much is it going to cost me to get lead for my webinar. Like let's focus on that. That's the biggest reason why my students would be running ads. I know you can't get into every single number in detail. But what would you say to somebody. That's struggling with that. Yeah so let's walk through how we would how we would break this down. So i you decide that sales goal. So let's say you wanna make make it easy ten thousand dollars. You've got a thousand dollar course. You need to sell ten. So you have that number of those sales goals. Okay now you have to decide your after come up. With how many leads you need into your web. In our in order to get those ten sales so for simplicity sake the average conversion is like one to five percent of all of your leads in. It's going to depend on your audience and the price of your offer. Let's just say three percent of people that sign up for your webinar. The total registrants are going to buy that course so you need ten sales and three percent are going to buy than what would be that total number of leads and i can't do math really fast but i mean what are you whatever that equals i think it would be like one percent is three hundred leads so we will need hundred leads. I think that's right so there once you have your leads. Then what's your cost per lead and an average cost lead for a webinar is anywhere from like four to ten dollars and again it depends on your industry when you're targeting consumers you usually have a cheaper cost per lead where if you're targeting business owners usually pay a little bit more because it's just a more saturated ad space so let's say five dollars you multi that let's say we need a hundred leads. Okay your ad spends five hundred dollars and that's how you break it down and get there. Okay i'm glad that you walk through this in the way that you did. I think my listeners really wanted some concrete data and like a formula to us. So i think that was really helpful so i appreciate you taking the time to really drill. That went down. Yeah perfect all right so move us on to mistake number two okay. The second mistake that many people make is they. Don't do enough testing especially of your ad creative so your copy your images maybe test video and in my opinion when i see someone saying that their ads aren't working eighty five ninety percent of the time. It's the messaging because it takes a lot of work to really understand who your ideal customer is and how to speak to them and how to stand out in the feed especially this year. It's just gotten even more important to go deeper to take it to the next level with talking to your ideal customers fears and their dreams and where they're struggling right now and so a lot people mostly because ads can be a lot of work. But i encourage you to take the extra week if you need you know as you get ready for adds to have at least three versions of your ad that you're testing. Maybe it's a long form of copy in a short form of copy and then you have a video an image. Because i'll get this question all the time. People's will what works better video or image or what works better long or short and it i there is no concrete answer because it's truly different for every audience. A lotta times. I do see video work better than in some cases i see a static image with no tax work better for somebody so the more testing you can do and the more deep you can go with your messaging to stand out the better. Your results will be and like i said truly eighty five ninety percent of time when your ads are hitting that cost per lead goal or they're too expensive or they're not converting it's because of your messaging because as you know amy like so many years it takes so much time to really truly know your customer but the person who knows them the most and can talk to them. The best in the feed will always

Samsung Galaxy S21 vs. iPhone 12

"Galaxy. S twenty one. Yes twenty one. Plus any s twenty-one ultra starting at eight hundred dollars for the standard model with the s twenty one plus costing about a thousand dollars and then the s twenty one ultra costing about twelve hundred dollars for years now. Samsung has positioned itself as one of the top. If not the top smartphone available on google's android platform as a result it is often considered the primary rival to apple in its iphone. So here's the question. How does the new line of samsung galaxy devices compared to the iphone. Twelve the latest model of apple's popular smartphone. That's we'll break down today. Let's start with the twenty one versus the iphone twelve the standard models. They're very similar. Screen sizes the same overall size. Weight of the phone is the same. Here's where they kinda stick out a little bit. The twenty one offers more storage at starting line so you get one hundred twenty eight gig versus sixty four gig at the start for an iphone twelve. The other thing is interesting to the twenty. One offers three cameras on the back of the phone basically meaning telephoto lens which is typically included on models of the iphone. Twelve pro are available here The iphone twelve has just two lenses on the back of its phone. So you're looking at four cameras. Total one front three in the back on s twenty one for his three total cameras one front two in the back for the iphone twelve also pricing pretty much. Exactly the same. So essentially within twenty. One you're getting an extra camera and more sword right out of the gate. The s twenty one plus versus the iphone pro with the iphone twelve pro again. You get a third camera on the back but telephoto lens. But what's interesting is the twenty one plus gives you a larger screen so instead of the six point one inch screen that you would have on the iphone twelve pro you end up with a six point seven inch screen on the twenty one plus so that's interesting to And again both. Those phones are pretty much on par price-wise prices the same. The size of the phone is really the difference here in terms of the screen. The starting storage is the same one hundred. Twenty eight gig but really. It's about that screen size. You get a lot more screen for your buck with that samsung phone now. Let's get to the granddaddies here. The ultra for the pro. Max with the ultra. You get six point eight inch screen so really not that big a leap compared to the plus the iphone twelve pro. Max is where you see a bigger leap and screen size from the pro. Six point seven inches When you're looking at the key features the pro. Max camera system has some smaller upgrades to get better. Zoom for example. I'm higher aperture as well. The twenty one. Ultra has an astonishing cameras on the back of the phone. So you get a second telephoto lens. That's interesting to price price-wise also it's about one hundred dollars more for the s twenty ultra versus the iphone. Twelve pro max. Here's another wrinkle to this though you have a fourth iphone. Twelve model the iphone twelve mini which is essentially the iphone twelve. Just in a much smaller size. In fact i just upgraded to an iphone twelve mini coming from an iphone seven and it's actually smaller than the iphone seven but it has a bigger screen and it's a nice phone and i think for folks that maybe are just tired of the bigger smartphone screens. It's a good alternative

The Ultimate Guide to Downsizing in Toronto

"Good evening. Paul here real estate podcast. Show dot com. This is a very very special report. That i wanted to make sure was right out there for all of you to listen to because it has been by far the most requested information that i could provide over the last few weeks. So i've got a feeling there's a lot of you out there who need to know how to make the safest in smartest downsizing decisions in twenty twenty one. The people that i'm meeting over the last two weeks range. Everywhere from homes in the danforth area to the beach to forest hill to rosedale a lot of you in rosedale are listening to My show and i really wanna make sure you're paying attention so rosedale. People bridle path people. A lot of you are sitting on some incredible properties that you no longer need and you understand that with the most amount of three million dollar plus sales in the history of toronto last year. There's an audience for your types of properties that you bought for one or two million dollars so now You're looking to some of your looking to down size and not necessarily in quality. You just wanna have your mansion squeezed into a three bedroom Five-star condo which i happen to have for sale at this time. So i know a lot of you are being gravitated towards these type of places. And i am going to need so many more so those of you with luxury. Condos and luxury lofts Do not pass go. Do not do anything until you reach out to me at real estate. Podcast show dot com. Because i've got these downsizing buyers who are in this position where they are going to be coming out with a lot of cash because a lot of these people do not have mortgages and they're going to be in a position to buy property and if you've never had a if you've ever sold a property ever dealt with a cash buyer and i'm talking about a cash buyer in a very strong position It's a whole different ballgame so rather than let's say you're selling your one point two million dollar condo and you're crossing your fingers closing day and i and i say that way because you know that the person probably may qualify for a million and they've got to find two hundred thousand. It's far better. I've got a different technique. That i use so it's far better to have the person with the one point. Five to two million affordability looking at your one point. Two million dollar condo loft if your place looks good enough. It will appeal to the people on the upper scale of that qualification versus the people on the other side of the qualification is just part of how it works. It doesn't mean that there isn't properties for everybody in every price rich. But i really wanna make sure that you are selling smart Most importantly safely. And i've actually said this to many people than i kind of get this look from people when they say this is safety is greater than location right now. So safety in your move to me is more important than location because for me and if you disagree. that's fine. Were allowed to do that but for me. Health is always going to come before wealth without a healthy mind. Body spirit soul. You can't enjoy the wealth. Whatever it is that you have in anybody that's listening. I don't care whether you have one hundred dollars in the bank or a million dollars in the bank. If you're not living the best life you can and and giving back and helping other people out and not hurting other people not not talking anybody down. Not treating the gardner differently than you would your spouse like any of that kind of people. I instantly repel i. I don't get along with any of you. That are like that. But those of you who are treating others kindly taking care of others donating food banks helping out small businesses. You were on the same page. I already know so. Thank

Many experts feel that this agreement is the world's last and best shot at keeping the globe from reaching the temperature of no return, , a two degree Celsius increase from pre industrial levels. . A big part of the administration's rationale for leaving the agreement was that it presented a threat to the US economy. .

Weren't very generous in helping out the family after a hard year. So they had been told to install these grain bins that that dried their corn, which typically I guess they would ship off and have that done. So they had invested in a lot of farming equipment that was very expensive and then drought came and the combination of those two things than the Bank just kind of swept it out from under them and sold it to a large corporation so on your first album as a song called hands of time, which is about, you know, leaving your home.
