"I've been on every film shoot. We've done since two, thousand eight. We've got twelve years. Working. Over one hundred, fifty film partners in fifty countries. Let's go back. Let's comb through an. It was an amazing process I mean, we don't have ironically. We don't have a I mean we do now but we really didn't have a master checklist of all the people we've worked with. Because again, we've worked with a lot of people we produced over two hundred videos now. It's it's a big library and so for me personally, it was great just reconnecting with people. that. We worked with years ago. Some some people have left, but honestly the most innovative and most interesting people in businesses and organizations that we've worked with in Jerusalem are still there. They're still in the trenches they're still doing their work and so I think you know. Your questions specifically, we wanted to give back and The best way was to reach out to people that we have worked with, and we did work with you know reach out work with the new people too. But overall it was about relationships was about friends, our global network people we admire and really checking in seeing how they're doing. Definitely the struggles were a big part of each of these stories. But also like I said earlier, also out, they've been resilience, they've adapted and change their business and going into each one of these individual stories it's personal. It's they're all different operators, nonprofits, destinations travel. Companies, I mean it really hotels lodges a real broad range in that. That's what was really great on our end is really showing diverse mix of all the different experiences people are having during this crazy pandemic and the back stories to one of the first of video game I video and they our Hulu around three minutes. But the first one that pops up is Rafeh. Keller's Keller. Yeah, that's it in Costa Rica and he's not only battling the potential demise of his company but he's battling he's with his health. He just reminds sorry holiday resilient. Just want to reach out and hug him. It was a really touching conversation that you had with him. But yeah, it's those back stories of these people that they not only. Battling with. The companies, the survival of companies, but the things that are going on within themselves and their families in the loss of their livelihood, the impact of. that. We. Did. You feel emotional after into people like. I will say, ironically, it was the first story that we did and I would agree with you. That was probably one of the more powerful UN's Ralph as someone who I've known for. Well over fifteen years is a pioneer is a leader innovator. You know he was rafting rivers in Africa and Latin America first ascents years ago and his stories amazing like you said, you know he's battling health you know crucial health limitations for himself personally You know he's he's from Costa Rica He's in Florida the time when we did the interview literally just trying to schedule the interview was challenging because of him going in and out of the hospital and obviously I wanted to be very respectful of his situation. But again, Rafeh someone had known for a long time seen him a major travel shows for you know decades and it's just a great guy and I think if you do look at. Obviously, you look at the interview and the footage we have him. Back in two thousand, ten, ten years ago. obviously, he's a, he's a different person physically just because of his health but again, you're right this is personal and everyone has their own story. He was a great person to kick it off with Gad's it's definitely emotional. I know it was for him to just to share his story, but it's it's inspirational and that's ultimately what we felt our job was was to get to be uplifting to share some stories of positivity of people who are struggling. I think one of the best quotes I love with Rafa Story is is a thirty, five year old startup. You know he's been there is done. That is built companies built as brandon icon brand, but they've literally had to shut their doors and innovate and go back to why they started their company and I think that's one of the reasons why We've been very inspired I've been very inspired on these stories is it get gets back to the strongest people in the travel industry the ones that are gonNA be around after all this are the innovators are the pioneers are the ones that are doing the work they're doing in the travel industry because they love it and you know I, have my opinions on over. Tourism and some of the challenges coming into the travel industry and happy to share them. But I really do believe the ones that are gonNA come out of this stronger smarter swifter and and better are the ones that are in the travel industry. So the reason of passion and love and wanting to just share their their love for travel with explain the Hashtag name. Hashtag tourism strong for us. You know we wanted to have a Hashtag that made sense that was simple and that was about the travel industry and unifying. I grew up in the down Boston Boston three years ago. Now had one of the bombing situations and one of the hashtags came out of it was Boston strong and and it's been one of those sort of rallying cry for me personally just from the down I'm actually GonNa be running the Boston Marathon. I was actually running it this year it was canceled. So I'M GONNA run it next year so. I personally, that was the Hashtag that I rallied around because obviously tourism is the industry that we're in. We're also a trade organization focused on the industry's the supply chain. How can we help other travel companies? And the broader travel industry so it it really became just a a brand Hashtag a name that was just resonated with us internally, and we thought it could provide value and be you know sort of clear to people that when you when you saw the Hashtag, you understood that these are going to be good stories that are GonNa Rally assault together in a period like we could never have imagined leaving Phoolan. Anticipating content and what you will capture will it be different from what you were doing before much well, ironically, the history of GOP films are are original name was actually a I don't know if you know this. Is Green Living Project. So it's actually come from Green's stain ability. ECHO. However, you want to call it and. I do think and I think early signs and and what people are seeing even my own personal experience here in the state of Maine in the eastern us the outdoors else wellness conservation nature. You know definitely going to be have increased interest in focus take everyone a lot of people going through the the endemic just on a personal level. It's it's not just connected us with family and loved ones friends that unification but it's also I think environmentally it's it's made us gotten us closer to the outdoors just appreciating fresh air in nature and I know for myself. I don't I I've no might town that I lived in five years now better in the past three months than the last five years ironically for for us, gop we're you know we're sticking to the concept that we've all. Always Been Doing Sustainability outdoors adventure I do see guests there will be some pivoting and slightly changing and tweaking a little more nature outdoors even though that's our bread and butter..

"You know through you know your your lungs are up through your throat and Anna and out they typically will drop at that distance so that's why they say ten feet you know separation so that's important I think if you want to get in and around other people even if you people you want to be separate but you still want to wear a mask so you're you're preventing you know either that inhalation that you may be exposed to and then people that haven't they may be preventing coughing it out to get other people exposed and you certainly I mean you really should clean your home environment all the time anyway so you should be using the disinfectants to clean surfaces you know if you want to go somewhere and get a push a cart through a supermarket you know put gloves on we get out of the car you know where the gloves you know through the supermarket taken off throwing the trash so that whatever you touch the supermarket you know you're not caring to the next thing that you touch so they're kind of very basic you know basic common sense ideas you know raft river going on all right I just want to hear from you I don't have all the compliments here I never I never looked at your picture you're very here glass thank you so much well see you yes we'd love to see here thank you so much that's very nice compliment thank you very much I can joke around and said may not be as handsome now because I'm not gonna hear cut and probably you know forty five or six weeks and you know it when you really get your hair cut every three weeks or so if you wanna look nice and neat and presentable your hair gets a little bit long you start to look a little cookie but thank you so much and so very very nice to me thank you okay phone lines are open if you'd like to call and ask a question to do so now let's go to John in Rockland how are you Hey doctor Calpe thanks for taking my call okay but a lot of it a long time health advocate a great leave in the in the products I only ordered products that are online I know you don't want it I should mention any company's problem yeah we're not really here to sort of promote companies and stuff but you have to do a quick test and remember that no matter what you take from whatever company you have to make sure that your blood sugar levels are good if not you're missing the mark how can you tell me about excipients and Phillips and what I wear on there's a lot of fillers binders excipients that are put into you know medications as well as you know vitamins so I mean they could be anything I mean most of the things that are used today are cellulose and then our vegetable source gelatin capsules but there are a variety of things put into vitamins there's you know usually the cheaper vitamins we now have for losing them because it's easier to make the vitamins and not you know sterilizing clean and separate and really take care of the machines that are the tumblers that make the the applets you know for vitamins and such so common fillers could be starch could be silicon dioxide titanium stearic acid talc you know there are a variety of things that can you know be placed in the vitamins but I think those are typically the cheaper vitamins so no colorings and dyes artificial flavors you know you may get inadvertently even some heavy metals in the process so I can tell you every single company that's out there what they do but everything we talk about the vitamins that we recommend for free of fillers binders excipients colorings and dies just like when we use the compounded prescriptions no me no fillers dyes colorings that's why we like the idea that makes the most sense so where can I go to to learn about as far as films are concerned that well you can go online and read that but again the most important thing you could do is get your blood testing for vitamins if you're nutritionally interested in your nutritionally hi you know ideologically you like the idea of taking vitamins and minerals you have to make sure that your levels are good if they're not you're you're not getting the appropriate protection I've spoken to tons of people over thirty years that are into fitness and exercise and vitamins and nutrition yet many of them have got the blood test for vitamins and we test them there D. is low there see is low there beta carotene slow so you don't know what's getting into your cells unless you start doing the blood test okay very good progress thank you so much for your call love to help you out give us a call if we can help you five one six seven nine four oh four O. for of course we can do both in office visits and telemedicine okay let's go to last minute Mike we're not really last last minute this time you're a little bit early I'm not everything okay I think I think I might be sick to make it happen some of the owner of the room it might take a leaf fifty minutes to close the show right sure yeah I'm I'm very wordy lately yeah I would all would be lazy yes oh my god just as I that's that's unheard of I think yeah yeah yeah listen I have an opinion at and I don't want to get bolder but everybody has an opinion it is a solar directives everybody had one sometimes they stink but it's my opinion okay terrible I'm sorry I'm sorry well we're going to start J. tsunami of nonsense ridiculous ideas everybody listen to people that are scared I understand where you're coming from the other side of the point is we have a city of New York beautiful city wonderful place that lockdown lockdown lockdown now we're coming into summer okay the weather pretty nice now we're going to have people that are not going to be able to communicate you run around the field this is the time this is my opinion that remember the peninsula this is a time right now to take advantage of the heat the weather in the woman to get the kid that leads to children back to summer school will backdate games of chance in the city open up the polluted regions because we I'm not out of the tech department jobs under which is absolutely ridiculous because you can walk around the city government so what are you gonna use Java so that will be W. that sell yeah I I think the idea is that you know mass either in swear tons together in a close you know proximity doesn't make sense but I don't see why people can't wear a mask and go for a walk on the beach as long as your distance from someone else the why not I don't see why that should be appropriate you know people are going to supermarkets in there you know distancing which is great I don't see a problem with that my only issue with whole foods is that since so many people go to whole foods you can barely get in so as soon as they open to assumes that closes a lot of like seventy people outside so it does make it a little bit difficult but I think if you're in a far away from other people in your take your protection and you you know disinfecting you wearing your mask you should be able to go to the beach water park I don't understand why you wouldn't you so much for your call looks like we lost Mike there so let's go to our next caller Linda and Long Island hi there how are you hi how you can help you great thank you okay okay I knew I knew that you missed me you want to have an update on my story yeah I sang on my nose wondering where's Linda and her ganglion cyst right this story is unbelievable I went to camp and you know that was terrible but this is not confusing though I understood what was going on with the cancer so what would you have done with your ganglion cyst okay so my primary care doctor said I definitely do not have a ganglion cyst okay so I have to go to specialists but something else one of the specialists say because usually vessels wanna deals with all of them in right okay he said he can't help until we put the needle in but it's either it could definitely a ganglion cyst with something else because it's some kind of a tumor but I got nervous and he said don't worry it's not it's not cancer you know so okay so I was hoping you know said remembered then we spoke about this if there is a sack there with lieutenant like a ganglion cyst if you take the food out it'll fill up again and go back and ever go away so it may be better to just have a removed and you'll never hear from again but they have to remove the entire you know sack if it's a solid you know benign tumor then they have to remove it so either way you're probably looking at having it removed so it won't be a problem again no no no right are you are you are when I had it done I had he told me I should have the three so what's what's your question I I can't go through every day of what you've done so far but we have a question for me no no he drained he drained it and he said I was all right that's enough okay well hopefully I will come back to typically it will fix a ganglion cyst thank you so much for your call have a.

"Jill on money Hey mark you know what I forgot I was so excited about the McRaven interview I forgot to tell everybody that we are broadcasting from the Policygenius virtual studios Policygenius is the easy way to compare and buy insurance all you have to do is go to policy genius dot com we are re airing an interview that we conducted back in twenty seventeen with admiral bill McRaven William to be specific and well I mentioned this at the top of the hour which is that he was asked to do a commencement speech at the university of Texas and that speech was amazing it went viral and the speech itself has so many good core concepts I think we could use all right now from our perspective for me and mark this is one of the highlights of the the things that we've done for this radio show over the last decade or more actually now so here's more of our interview with bill McRaven now to kind of shift gears in order two thousand four fourteen year delivering a commencement speech at the university of Texas right front and first of all how did that come about who asked you to do that well the president of university bill powers asked me to come to the commencement speech at my alma mater of university of Texas at Austin and and and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do it into the it turned out to be just a you know a fantastic night in Austin in may and and you know eight thousand students and about that twenty thousand of their parents and best friends it was a great evening and from that commencement speech comes this slim elegant and really terrific book called make your bed let's start with why you wanted to turn first by the way every go and check out the speech because it's been downloaded ten million times something to that effect but what made you want to turn into a book your everyday literally every single day since the speech Saturdays and Sundays included somebody comes up to me and says I make my bed or you know I don't ring the bell or I don't back down from the sharks but after they tell me that then they always ask me what was it that inspired you you know tell me about your experience as a shortcut to tell me about how you know didn't back down or who were the people that inspired you and you know for several years I was a busy didn't have time to do it and finally had an opportunity to it's a small gift book but I think it has broad appeal now this is not just a book for commencement I I think it's a book for anybody that goes to realize that has to deal with with failures that has they're great dark moments in life that after overcome so the book was really about the people that inspired me and let's just start with the the number one which is the title of the book make your bed why is making your bed so important well you know all at least there when I was being raised my father's near force officer in my my mother was a school teacher in Texas and and my mother ensured more so than my father that I made my bed every day but as young kid you don't really understand why other than your mom wanted me to but when I got the seal training it was something that the seal instructors came in and inspected every day and I didn't really understand the first look we're we're here to be you know real civil warriors why are we worried about making our bed and the and then all the sudden you know you have the sort of funny which is they recognize it it was kind of the first task of the day and the and if you start off your day right by taking pride in making your bed it's a simple task and if you do it well then other tasks will come and then you'll complete the next Aston and so it's kind of the first rung on the ladder in the course your day but the other thing about making your bed is it shows that if you do the little things well then maybe you can do that the bigger things well and the seal instructors would make sure if you can't make your bed if you can't make those hospital corners right if you don't know how to put your you know wool blanket at the foot of the bed if you can't take the time to make your bed correctly how will you ever be a good she'll run into an important mission so learn to do the little things right and then that will help you do the big things right is there something about seal training that is different than any other part of the military what's that what it what it differentiates the seal from you know the guy who's in the army I could tell me a little bit about that well I will say I think a lot of almost all the special forces training are similar in terms of you know there's a selection process where you're looking for in in my case they were all men you're looking for man that you think are gonna make it through training you're trying to insure that they have kind of the the right stuff all of the special forces training the ranger training the seal training I would say the the thing that differentiates children is off to the water so a lot of my great army brother in you know you didn't like the part about being cold wet and miserable that doesn't make them any less tough let me tell you I have seen some of the toughest man I've seen army Rangers army green berets and and we like to think she'll training is the toughest military training out there but I think all of the stack up it's been pretty tough again would seem so I'm so one the other pieces of this and as you go through when you give the the little things that can change your life you do talk about making sure that you have good teammates and find someone to help you paddle in in the book also you give some great examples in your own life but I'm just wondering like in you're not just career but in your life talk a little bit about the reliance on others that team based approach because I do feel a tiny bit like sometimes that's lost in this current culture where everyone sort of sitting alone at a screen feeling disconnected how did those connections really foster success well I talked to a little bit about it in the speech and then I can I call it a little bit in the book but when you go through seal training you're given what we refer to as an inflatable boat small it's about an eight to ten foot little raft river raft and you carried everywhere you go and the purpose of carrying a raft it's a seven man boat crew but the purpose of of carrying it isn't just the carry the boat is to recognize that if you're gonna get the boat from point a to point B. everybody has to work together as a team and I don't care whether you're the officer or the junior enlisted guy if you don't paddle the way you're supposed pal if you don't you know stroke heart if if everybody doesn't do again then the boat will get more news get to and and so the recognition as you go through seal training that you know you're better be a good teammate first we're called the seal teams for a reason in fact when you meet another guy in the seal teams to say Hey are you in the teams and so the concept of being a team everybody having a role to play for you to be successful is important and then in the book I talk about the fact that Jodhpur should action back in in two thousand and one up to that point in my career yeah I I thought like a lot of seals and maybe I was a little invincible I've been the I had some some life for life threatening situations in the air under water and other places and I always managed to get out of it but not this time and so I got pretty banged up in in a free fall parachute jump and frankly I thought my career was over was banged up that badly but but fortunately I had a lot of folks my wife in particular but my boss Millard Olson friends came by to see me you know wished me well help me with my therapy my physical therapy and I would never be where I am today were it not for the fact that everybody came together to help me through that tough events in my life how did that change you going forward when you actually do get injured did you did you change your mind set change about how you approach what you did or how you approach to others I think you know after that point time I always recognize the value of of team but I was never the individual that kinda needed the help in terms of the the other team helping me that was a point time where I went I'm just as vulnerable as everybody else you know life can be very very fragile I mean I realize that once again you know my my wife was was spared and it was it all happened in the in an instant I've had a number of those in my career leading up to the Persian accent but again I I always managed to do the right thing and gotten out of it now all the sudden I'm badly injured and and realize that while moving forward this is easier than I thought in terms of the potential to get injured so after nine eleven this occurred before nine eleven after nine eleven as I watched the mind soldiers sailors airmen marines and others and solve the the wounds they suffered you realize that you need to be in a position I need to be in a position to help them other people need to be in a position to help them because we all need people to help us get through life we'll get back to our interview with bill McRaven in just a second Hey you know what you can do during the break why did you buy this book make your bed that's a good idea and while you're at it you can buy my book which is called the dumb things smart people do with.

well the president of university bill powers asked me to come to the commencement speech at my alma mater university of Texas at Austin and and and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do it into the it turned out to be just a you know a fantastic night in Austin in may and and you know eight thousand students and about that twenty thousand of their parents and best friends it was a great evening and from that commencement speech comes this slim elegant and really terrific book club make your bed I'm let's start with why you wanted to turn first by the way every go and check out the speech because it's been downloaded ten million times something to that effect but what made you want to turn into a book you know every day literally every single day since speech Saturday's and Sunday's included somebody comes up to me and says I make my bed or you know I don't ring a bell or I don't back down from the sharks but after they tell me that then they always ask me what was it that inspired you you know tell me about your experience as a shortcut to tell me about how you know didn't back down or who were the people that inspired you and you know for several years I was a busy didn't have time to do it and finally had an opportunity to it's a small gift book but I think it has broad appeal this is not just a book for commencement I don't think it's a book for anybody that goes through life that has to deal with with failures that has you know great dark moments in life that they have to overcome so the book is really about people that inspired me and let's just start with the the number one which is the title of the book make your bed why is making your bed so important well you know all at least when I was being raised my father's near force officer in my my mother was a school teacher in Texas and and my mother ensured more so than my father that I made my bed every day but as young kid you don't really understand why other than your mom wanted me to bed when I got the seal training it was something that the steel structures came in and inspected every day and I didn't really understand the first look we're we're here to be you know real civil warriors why are we worried about making a bed and the and then all the sudden you know you have this affinity which is they recognize it it was kind of the first task of the day and and if you start off your day right I take a little pride in making your bed it's a simple task and if you do it well then other task will come and then you'll complete the next Aston and so it's kind of the first rung on the ladder in the course your day but the other thing about making your bed is it shows that if you do the little things well then maybe you can do the the bigger things well and the steel structures would make sure it if you can't make your bed if you can make those hospital corners right if you don't know how to put your you know will blanket at the foot of the bed if you can't take the time to make your bed correctly how will you ever be a good she'll run into an important mission so learn to do the little things right and then that will help you do the big things right is there something about seal training that is different than any other part of the military what's that what it what it differentiates the seal from you know the guy who was in the army I could tell me a little bit about that well I would say I think a lot of almost all the special forces training are similar in terms of you know there's a selection process where you're looking for in in my case they were all men you're looking for man that you think you're gonna make it through training you're trying ensure that they have kind of the the right stuff all of the special forces training the ranger training the seal training I would say the the thing that differentiates your offering is off to the water so a lot of my great army brother and you know you didn't like the part about being cold wet and miserable that doesn't make them any less tough let me tell you I have seen some of the toughest man I've seen army Rangers army green berets and and we like to think she'll training is the toughest military training out there but I think that all of the stack up it's been pretty tough again would seem so I'm so one the other pieces of this and as you go through and you give the the little things that can change your life you do talk about making sure that you have good teammates and find someone to help you paddle even in the book also you give some great examples in your own life but I'm just wondering like in you're not just career but in your life talk a little bit about the reliance on others that team based approach because I do feel a tiny bit like sometimes that's lost in this current culture where everyone sort of sitting alone at a screen feeling disconnected how did those connections really foster success well I talked to a little bit about it in the speech and then I can call it out a little bit and the book but when you go through seal training you're given what we refer to as an inflatable boat small it's about an eight to ten foot little raft river raft and you carry it everywhere you go and the purpose of carrying the raft it's a seven man boat crew but the purpose of of carrying it isn't just the carry the boat is to recognize that if you're gonna get the boat from point a to point B. everybody has to work together as a team and I don't care whether you're the officer or the junior enlisted guy if you don't paddle the way you're supposed battle if you don't you know stroke heart if if everybody doesn't again then the boat will get word is good too and and so the recognition as you go through seal training that you know you better be a good team may first we're called the seal teams for a reason in fact when you meet another guy in the seal teams to say Hey are you in the teams and so the concept of being a team everybody having a role to play for you to be successful is important and then in the book I talk about the fact that Jodhpur should action back in in two thousand and one up to that point in my career yeah I I thought like a lot of seals and maybe I was a little invincible I've been I've had some some life the life threatening situations in the air under water and other places and I always manage to get out of it but not this time and so I got pretty banged up in in a free fall parachute jump and frankly I thought my career was over was banged up that badly but but fortunately I had a lot of folks my wife in particular but my boss hablar Colson friends came by to see me you know wish me well help me with my therapy my physical therapy and I would never be where I am today we're not for the fact that everybody came together to help me through that tough events in my life how did that change you going forward when you actually did get injured did you did you change your mind set change about how you approach what you did or how you approach to others I think you know after that point time I always recognize the value of team but I was never the individual that kinda needed the help in terms of the the other team helping me that was a point time where I went I'm just as vulnerable as everybody else you know life can be very very fragile I mean I realize that once again you know my my wife was was spared and it was it all happened in in an instant I've had a number of those in my career leading up to the Persian accent but again I I always managed to do the right thing and gotten out of it now all of a sudden I'm badly injured and and realize that while moving forward this is easier than I thought in terms of the potential to get injured so after nine eleven this occurred before nine eleven after nine eleven as I watched the mind soldiers sailors airmen marines and others and solve the the wounds they suffered you realize that you needed to be in a position I needed to be in a position to help them other people need to be in a position to help them because we all need people to help us get through life we'll get back to our interview with bill McRaven in.

"We're talking with our Special Guest Ryan. Leveque who I mean. This is a golden commerce. This is going to be one of those episodes that I know I'm going to say hey if you're in business and you haven't listened to this like this is mandatory listening for you so you're in the right spot. Put that phone away. Listen this is going to be a great one. Let's do it here. We Go Ryan. Welcome back to the smart passive income podcast. Thanks for being here in hats often be here super pumped beach with you again man. The last time you were on was over two hundred episodes ago. One seventy eight. It was one of our most popular episodes because he talked about the ask formula for people who maybe didn't listen to that exactly. What is the ASS formula? Why is it so important and I'll talk about how it's affected me in my business after that. Yeah for sure so the ask. Method is a methodology to understand your market at a deep emotional level. You can ultimately better serve that market and then also better sell to that market and the idea behind it is if you understand your market better than they even understand themselves then you can deliver solutions to what it is that they need and sell to them in a way where you're marketing your messaging resonates with them at a deep level. So ask is all about that. And it's all about also identifying the different buckets that exist in your market so in every single market doesn't matter what market you're in there are different groups of people that have slightly different needs wants desires and the challenge when you sell online. Is that when you try to be all things to all people you end up being nothing to nobody and by identifying the different buckets that exist in your market you can segment people and then serve them the best message and the best product. That's a right fit for them. And so I ask is really just a framework to implement that process in your business online right and it's about asking the right questions which you set up really nicely in the book and I took that and I implemented it and right away started the immediate results number one. We started to notice that there were indeed different pockets of people in our audience and that was a huge realization to me. I mean on a implementation level. We had one email list that we were just sending the same email to every time once. I started to see that there were different levels of people and different experiences. That people were having under my brand at S. P. I. It was like Whoa like this advanced. Seo Article that we came out with has like shouldn't even reach the beginners and vice versa. Things that we're for beginners shouldn't even be seen by the more advanced segment yet. We were just putting everybody into one bucket which is sort of the most common thing so immediately we started to run some surveys. Using the question. The frameworks that you had especially that. I think the number one question was what's the number one biggest challenge. You have related to blink and what we did what you teach us to take. Those answers literally just regurgitate them back to everybody and the responses. And I've told you this before. Just people were like. How do you know like you don't be better than I know myself? And Oh my gosh. I found the right person. Like you understand and like like what like what you said if you can show that you understand them better than they can. They're going to automatically assume that. Well you must have the answers to so just a big heartfelt. Thank you from myself my team for helping us sort of create this framework of how to better surveillance. It's made us more money. It's made us have a higher email open rain and just number one just allowed to connect better with everybody. So thank you for that. You know I I love that and you know what makes me happiest is just the impact that you're having right. I'm GonNa huge fan of your staff since before we knew each other personally like I was a listener. I was a customer like for years before that and just to see the impact that you're having to be able to reach more people like that to me is you know. That's the reward right there so super happy about that man. Thank you so that book is called. Ask with probably the longest subtitle I've ever seen in a book but that's okay like at any time. Anybody comes to me. And he goes pat one. Write a book. I I need to make the subtitle short and sweet. I'm like you don't need to make it shortly. Get Ryan's Book. One word title right when you have a one word title. You need a subtitled to back it up. So people know like what the heck the book is actually about. Can you cite the subtitle to that? I'm sure you haven't memorized. Put me on the spot attitude at all about the. I don't put me on the spot. It's the longest funny funny story about that. I'm in talks with my publisher now for releasing a revised edition of the book. Not Saying that we're working on right now and we'll be coming out with that in a little over a year from now and that's one of the biggest topics is that they came to me said. Ryan we have to shorten the subtitle on the second version of the books up. It was the first book I ever wrote. And Gosh I mean I don't know if you think back to your first book like just there's so many things you don't know when you're writing a book. There's so many lessons that you learn and that's like one of you know a list of a thousand things that you know do different next time around. Sure subtitles so yeah well. We'll get to that new version whenever IT COMES OUT. Let me know because it has been impactful for me and there's some big things happening in it. Were changing some of the framework that we teach. So we you remember the concept of hyper responsive so going those people that give you those long. Passionate detailed response is really focusing on that segment of the market. That's like you know akin to your superfan concept like these are super fans when they're like or their heart out you and they and they really have a lot going on what we've revised we find that formula to also incorporate not just the length of response that people give you but also measuring how much time they've spent trying to solve the problem that you're asking about and how much money they've invested in their life to try to solve that problem with that. There's an algorithm that helps you identify. The precise pocket of people who have spent money spent time and have a burning desire to solve that problem. That is what you want to focus everything in your business around your messaging your products and everything else. So that's just about a dozen sort of refinements and enhancements that are coming around the corner so I'll tease you with that for before the the book comes out now. I I like that a lot. I can see that working really well. I have a lot of students who asked me pat like I have the segment of my audience that I really wanNA focus on. But which one should I actually have a conversation with and you know I think having the people who have spent money's a good thing because you know that they've tried and there were perhaps willing to try and work with you to solve that problem is you can fix it for them. They're likely going to be the most outspoken people to spread that message for you even more. So thank you. For mentioning a super fans I think. A lot of my kinds of content. In your kinds of consonant blend. Well together and I think that's where Your News Book Choose. Fits really nicely and so one word title again. Not Ask but choose now. A little bit shorter subtitle. But what is the Sort of Hypothesis here what what? What is this book for? Yeah you know so so when I when I release ask again I I'm author. I had no idea what to expect. I put it out there and again. The book is really about understanding your audience. How to how to ask the right questions to understand what it is your audience truly wants and what I struggled with is after the book literally hundreds of thousands of people around the world publishing all these different languages. I kept coming back to the fact that some people would come to me and they'd write me these heartfelt letters and they say Ryan was huge out of the book. But I tried what you taught and it didn't work and when something like that happens it's sort of like a sucker punch in the gut. It's like well what did I do wrong and so I did some deep reflection and looked at what am I missing? What are the gaps in the methodology? What's what's missing and what ended up happening is I saw that. There is a trend and all roads kept pointing to the same direction. And that's this People were following the methodology to the tea. And they're still failing because of one reason and that one reason was that they were choosing bad markets meaning. They were following the process of asking what people want. Identifying the hyper spots of segmented the market but they are going into markets that had no chance of succeeding in the first place and the metaphor that I use on a show. This in the book I think is really helpful. It sorta like this. It's like when you start a business you can. It's like tossing your your raft in a river and you can have the best wrath. Money can buy you the best equipment you can hire a crew to row in that raft with you but if you put your raft in the river and it's pointed in the wrong direction or worse yet you put your Raft River. That doesn't have any water in it. It doesn't matter how hard you row. How good you're you're never GonNa get to your destination. You're never gonNA get to that place that you want to go. And what I realize is that I'd given people the best raft in equipment but I did not teach them how to find the right river. The Right River for you the river. That's not too big not too small. The river that has a current that propels you forward as opposed to paddling upstream in China. You know do it on your own how to find that river and So I went on a three year research project. really identify. What does it mean to have a market that is going to set you up for success and the book is really all about the data and empirical study that? I went through looking at the twenty-three businesses that that I've started since I've been doing this for twenty three different markets that we've gone into all sorts of different weird niches researching the business that my clients have gone into again in all sorts of different markets and trying to identify. What are the trends like if you were to boil it down? It's easy for you and I to say we'll pick a good market right. But what does that mean exactly and much like ask? It's very analytical approach to measuring things like pre existing demand measuring things like size of the market and. What is the right size market? That's not too big and not too small. But how do you measure that as ring things? Like what are the criteria your market should have? And what is the sort of the checklist of things that you're looking for before you die right and and that's what the book is all about. It's all about how to pick the right market before you start your business. Which I claimed in this book is the single. Most important decision one needs to make. When you're starting your business is who you're going to serve for sure. I mean I've written about similar things in willow fi obviously business validation. And how did you that and I think what I love about your book and your take on it is it can work in conjunction with the things I teach and we'll fly very well and you. On the more data data driven analytical side of things I think with those powers combined I think you can make some magic happen where I focused on and will it fly to start. The book was really on before we even get into the figuring out of which river to get into or income stream. If.

"That goes into into into a boutique glancing place. Because you don't do this to be rich and you you do it because you love nature and you love sharing it. Can you share one of those stories that stands out to you so many favorites so the book is organized. Just so you know maybe you pick chapter you WanNa hear about so it because it. It wasn't the treehouse chapter in the Safari. 10-chapter it's the cultivate chapter and that's all farm stays or wild. West would be ranches in motion are multiday journeys journeys going from camp to camp Safari like wildlife viewing driven Living History is like you know an abandoned cannery the NBC. That gets you know now. They've renovated the old managers cabins from nineteen thousand four. And you go and you know runamuck around the general store. So I think we'll hills goes for example like the history of Bull Hill with his Dan. Also agendas jump out of you or I just love how you guys categorize them. I think that was brilliant. The way you slotted them under these these overarching themes essentially What I was curious about I guess was a lot of times travel? Of course comes down it does come down to the people you meet stories. You hear right so I was wondering if there was a particular person or an owner of one of these places or something that kind of stood out to you as something that you really connected acted with because you said Bohl hill which was really funny. Because it's it's her ranch fourth-generation back and he was a guy who came through Ellis. The Island was sort of horseback ride and picked up. Odd jobs found his sort of little slice of Washington that he reminded him of home and and he settled there. And but when we got to this place which is now still run by his great grandsons and granddaughters were like are we crushable wedding. There was arrange and party going on in there. Nope that's just your normal notable hill. It is an open Elkin bar. You help yourself to the cookie jar you feel like family and we got their field like it just instantly welcome and you know. They're just they're just having fun like the fact that they're having fun. You cannot have fun with with them you know they make up silly rules like don't you know don't fall off your horses you'll have to you know. Take a shot out of the bowl. Sorry you lost your. Let's have a shot and just they're just kind of like anything you WANNA do. Yeah were rounded up. Kelly WanNa come like it felt like you were a friend or family and that's kind of what we were going for. That's beautiful thing. It's organic feel clamping by the way in case anybody's listening. They're still like what W T.F. Is Glenn Ping silliest glamorous camping I was Gonna ask you if you like the term because I think it's prime but I think it's it's it's unfortunate but that became the term people people are recognizing it and that's why we didn't call it the glancing book we almost could've because there isn't a travel guide on glancing but we're like you know what it some we you want people to get away from like the flukiness of the word glancing and go. These are awesome outdoor experiences. Everybody should have. It's not about glamour. It's not about you know it's camping and you're not camping in the woods but you've got some luxuries than yeah to us. It was all about access to these unique properties. They probably otherwise wouldn't go to some family ranch remote wilderness areas and people that have connection to this land. They're showing doing all sorts of activities. Because you're not just sitting in a tent and being like wow. This hotel room is great like now. Let's drive somewhere fun. No you're in a fun place and these owners. No so they showcase it with all sorts of cool activities and that is why we organized it by type of activity because we want people to think past. Just the thread count on the sheets needs while this is an instagram. -able shot of my feet out of a tent although guilty of that too but it's much more than that. It's much deeper than than just this. The unique structure set in the middle of the kind of broke it down to like what does define glancing And it was comfortable accommodations. You're not going to be you know sleeping on the ground round ever it's all set for you. the creative structures that they're gonNA have this wild factor of maybe. It is a unique treehouse aura. A Shipping Container Hainer. There's really no bounds to what Glenn can be as long as it's comfortable in nature. Don't with love of creativity sustainability. They should they should tread lightly on the land. You're I'm not knocking down trees to make your working with the existing environment that was really important to us as well and then the inspiring proprietors the people who make this truly one of a kind he who share their story story and give you access enter their world. Yeah I love how you guys kind of redefine it to take back the term right because it does have this feel of just the term conjures up images of you know like four star hotel or something and like you said. That's not what this is. I mean what camper doesn't want to sleep in what travelers want to sleep even a tree house. I would say or some kind of old historic building and be a part of that and like inhabit that space inhabiting spaces like that changes is your travel experience. Right it's not the same as staying in a hostel or hotel or or anything like that I guess the spirit of Glam Ping for you guys is. What would that mean like you know when you describe If somebody asks you about place you wins or just ask you about your nomad life like you get these feelings llings within then you have to put words to them right so if somebody asks you about your lamping experience and he said Oh what was it like to glancing around. I know we keep using the term clamping even though we're doing pissing it but everybody knows what does that mean to you internally. I mean things that come to mind for me one is it's it it allows people a deeper connection to the land. It'll it gives an accessibility because yeah you could also have a deep connection to the land by. You're putting on a fifty pound pack and put an attempt in there and a camping stove and you would have also deep connection to that land. But that's just you know that's is not always for the husband the wife and the two kids and the grandma certainly not gonna go on that trip so while maybe one person in the relationship can have that that Glam Ping us like it makes it much more inclusive of multigenerational of friends of city dwellers it gives gives it an access to nature for such a wider group of people that otherwise either wouldn't see it or would just stay in hotel in the city. Radian go on like a one day excursion for a hike or something. But you're you get to immerse yourselves there without having to fear buying all this gear. Am I gonNA repaired. Am I gonNA get rained on. Do I WANNA sleep on the floor. Do I have to purify my own water. Like not have to worry about any of that. It allows a lot more people to connect connect to the land which is just relaxing. Not have those fears and even we not that. We didn't like camping but a certain point. We just stopped owning the stuff like it didn't make sense it was too much stuff to Schlep. And but isn't doesn't mean that did WANNA sleep among the trees like it made it really easy. I love that it is attracting. Okay people who've never camped before they go. Oh yes I can do that. So it's empowering and and even like we made a big point in the book to think about like you know putting Asking the questions like is there a handicap accessible tent or even even treehouse which some there are and can you bring your dog a lot. The love to travel with the duck is going to be good for kids. And if so what age because we have this awesome river rafting river after from camp to camp in the largest contiguous wilderness area in in the US and it's awesome for kids over the age of eight so like we ask those questions that you knew you know looking at your group dynamic what is going to be we now get a hit. Everybody's needs and for that moment in your life to with eastern Budgie. What are some of the answers to some of those common questions? I know this is a big question. Because it's going to vary from place place to place but in your experience what are some of the most commonly asked questions. And what are the answers to those based on three years of doing this we even want to know and.

"And in your mountain lover like i am an photographer. It's such an amazing place to be very very <hes>. Sounds sounds very inviting killer mountain not as much so it's nice to look at it would be really difficult to climb so too awesome high. Let you just shared with us pakistan as well the last fifty five countries or so what about more low point not a great experience not oughta great country. I wouldn't say that there were any not great countries <hes> more just that i i think that everyone's opinion of any country is fully based on their experience. There in has nothing to do with the country itself. I had a hard time travelling through central africa and some parts of western africa because i didn't have very much money and it's by far my experience most expensive area of the world which definitely takes the fun out of it in that way <hes> being a being a young woman i do believe. I believe that there are some times where you should spend a bit extra money just to do things safely so i didn't have enough if i wanted to. I wanted to go to timbuktu in mali but i didn't have the budget to afford the car the driver the the security in the really expensive western civilization and western at accommodation along the way just the price tag hikes go up and up and up so i think that if i would have been like on a trip like i was in pakistan that was a bit it more structured in sponsored. It's harder to go to that area of the world as just a tourist <hes> it's it's definitely a central africa in that whole area you you really wanna be a part of a project there or go there with a purpose with a mission to to get out and do something specific. It's not really somewhere you can fly to bali indonesia australia alia or something where you can just go and be wander around and see some really cool stuff and be there for a couple of days <unk> <hes> it's a lot if you wanna see he like what the country really has to offer. You have to go deep and to go deep in that area. You gotta have deep pockets as well looking looking at that area central africa west africa. I don't know if there is a good anecdote for example of a real challenging situation like a bush taxi that you took in broke down in the middle of the night or you're staying in a really bad hotel and you just wanted to to be back home in your own bed but what's challenging little anecdote to visiting some of those countries while there there was a lot of challenges especially because you need visas for all of these countries in dealing with african bureaucratic african african embassy bureaucrats like within countries in africa is really slow and frustrating process times <hes> so that was hard <unk> hard but i think that the scariest thing i've ever happened to me in while traveling traveling which is also could have happened anywhere really <hes> was at the airport in bamako in mali. I i was there with my father. My dad and we had arranged for we are staying at one of the nicer hotels in the city and it was at night when we got there. It was raining <hes> especially when i arrived somewhere at night i like to make sure that i've arranged for a hotel to come. Pick me up so i don't have to oh head into the the the swarm of hungry taxi drivers. That will just bombard you so i triple check to that. This hotel was going to come up and there was a man with our name on sign and we walked out to the the parking lot with him and he had two men with him for some reason and they only travel at the carry on it by like tiny tiny light. Little carry-on is carrying a my hand in one of these men men. Just rips may carry on out of hand afternoon saying another got it. I got it's fine. Just takes it from me like okay fine. He throws it in the back of the driver's car in driver. Disappears appears to go pay for parking or something so these two men are standing there and they start you know getting really the aggressive with my dad asking for tips forgiving for for helping me with my bag and my dad's of course gonna guy that always gives people will people tips that he wasn't. He wasn't getting the money fast enough so they were getting really aggressive and heated and it was just like my dad was kinda. Cracking in a little bit <unk> slept in so long new is getting aggressive and it was just probably the scariest moment of just not knowing what was going on you now through a five dollar. Bill <unk> disappeared but that was the most tense thing i've ever experienced traveling. Welcome to mali yeah yeah exactly you touched on that situation in in fact in mali for example where you wanted to go somewhere due due to security issues to money weren't really able to visit where you wanted to visit so my question is whether was due to money being whether it was due to security weather ended up just being a technical visit so he can meet the guinness requirement. What's a country you went to but you felt shortchanged. You didn't get to spend enough time there. There's something amazing that you wanted to see your something that you really really wanted to do much good question <hes> i well. The first time i visited the d._r._c. i went to goma which then realized was the base for so many amazing adventures and i felt i didn't plant i was only there for a day trip and i felt like i was so missing out seeing all of these that packers getting ready to go on the hike to niyragongo conroe or keno and i remember telling myself like oh. I need to go back there. When i finish this whole record thing may get to finally finally travel again the way the i want to travel and go and see that so recently i actually returned to the d._r._c. at that's where i just came back from and i got to at finally do that hike and honestly it was one of the most insane experiences variances of my life. If you guys listening don't know urugonda volcano is home to the world's largest lava the lake and it's a it's a day hike up in a day hike back down and you spend the night on these in these little cabins that under just nailed into the side of the lava rock bear cabins with like a little mattress patent side so you <hes> i paid paid a quarter twenty bucks to carry my stuff up. It was a pretty difficult hike <hes> but i i made it up there and spent spent the night there. I got my drone in there got to fly around and take all of these amazing photos videos all night long. I swear i didn't maybe maybe slipped just a few hours that night. Because i was mesmerized by alive it becomes when the sun goes down. Just these glowing molten lava bursts everywhere is incredible awesome awesome experience now getting jealous at a tentative plan to go but the park was closed and i ended up could receive part instead just out of curiosity what's better our initial falls or that <hes> incompatible those there isn't i would say that those two are probably the top in the the top five most unbelievable things i've ever seen so. They're so different. Though in the in the environment surrounding them is also quite different. You just open the door for me. I have a challenge with this type of question is well. We spoke about you know. The volcano we spoke about angel falls when you said top five so any way you can rent at the top five three more of the most awesome things you've seen. During your travels <hes> well. I already mentioned at nanga parbat. The killer mountain in pakistan seeing mountains were unbelievable. I also have the a chance to take a small airplane ride over mount everest out of kathmandu that was by far far one of the most incredible things i've seen more recently when i went to indonesian i went to a small area <unk> in the coral triangle called raja on pot and i was diving there for ten days and i found myself in the middle of this big bait boss school of fish and for some reason the only scuba diver in the middle of this and i was actually crying in my my masks because it was so beautiful the corless like you've it looked like a cartoon like the how they draw the colors of curling cartoons just look exactly like that in indonesia and one more if i had to choose news <hes> i would say that being able to see the <hes> hieroglyphics obelisks and the pyramids in egypt like especially like the less touristy egypt's are less less touristy pyramids than giza like out in kara <hes> being able to climb inside of five thousand-year-old human creation <hes> by yourself the heat. You're dripping sweat. You can see the smoke on the on the ceiling from they were laying. The pharaohs tunes is the most surreal experience as well excellent lest great that you i share that beyond that when you are traveling do you have a specific inspiration or raison d'etre to be each monday these this country's in other words when you go visit a country as you go to the museum. You've got to check at the unesco world heritage. It's <hes> some some sort of extreme sport or it's the nature of the wildlife jeffey must do when you visit each country yeah well. The the situation changes a bit by region but my favorite thing to do whenever i get to country is to get as far away from the capital city as i can with the time that i have. I feel that you really get to see all of the unique aspects of culture when you get a little bit away away from the more developed us cities and i'm also a nature lover. I'm most happy when i'm doing something active active outdoors so i like to find the the adrenaline activities that heights the dives off that and just being able to connect with the natural environment in the countries that i visit. Can you give us an example. What's took those active extreme experiences that you had that was awesome well other than the climbing into the angel falls in the d._i._c. <hes> <hes> really enjoy switzerland for the active activities in interlocking that they call it like a like the mecca for paragliding so when paragliding for the first time they're a bungee jumping off the third highest ask a waterfall when river rafting river diving hiked more than ever hyped in my entire life the <hes> over over steam region.

"Well I already mentioned at Nanga. Parbat the killer mountain in Pakistan. Seeing mountains were unbelievable. I also have the chance to take a small airplane ride over Mount Everest out of Kathmandu. That was by far one of the most incredible things I've seen more recently. When I went to Indonesian I went to a small area Coral Triangle called on pot. And I was diving there for ten days and I found myself in the middle of this big basketball school of fish and for some reason the only scuba diver in the middle of this and I was actually crying in my masks because it was so beautiful. The corless like you've it looked like a cartoon like the how they draw the colors of curling cartoons. Just look exactly like that in Indonesia and one more. If I had to choose I would say that being able to see the Hieroglyphics obelisks and the Pyramids in Egypt. Like especially like the less touristy Egypt's are less touristy pyramids than Giza like out in Sikora Being able to climb inside of five thousand year-old human creation By yourself the heat you're dripping sweat. You can see the smoke on the on the ceiling from when they were laying the pharaohs tunes is the most surreal experience as well excellent lest great that you share that beyond that when you are traveling. Do you have a specific inspiration or raison d'etre to be each Monday these countries in other words? When you go visit the country as you go to the museum you've got to check at the UNESCO World Heritage it's Some sort of extreme sport or it's the nature of the wildlife. Jeffey must do when you visit each country. Yeah well the. The situation changes a bit by region. But my favorite thing to do whenever I get to country is to get as far away from the capital city. As I can with time that I have I feel that you really get to see all of the unique aspects of culture when you get a little bit away from the more developed US cities and I'm also a nature lover. I'm most happy when I'm doing something active outdoors so I like to find the the adrenaline activities that heights the dives all of that and just being able to connect with the natural environment in the countries that I visit. Can you give us an example? One of those active extreme experiences that you had that was awesome well other than the climbing into the angel falls in the DIC Really enjoy Switzerland for the active activities in interlocking that they call it like a like the Mecca for paragliding. So when paragliding for the first time they're a bungee jumping off the third highest waterfall when River Rafting River. Diving hiked more than ever hyped in my entire life in the Over over steam region. It's the waterfalls. My favorite place at ever stayed was in Lia in the Swiss Alps Really bad with the the German names but it's also known as the cliffhanging hostile so you take a cable car to the top of this mountain and then you hike with all of your stuff through like ancient caves up to this This hostile that's literally hanging off. The side of the Alps said the inside of the hostile wall against the mountain is open mountain face. It was unbelievable. I'll put it on the list. Challenges are just doing some reading. I learned that you had a extreme bad food. Sickness incident in you. Also ahead malaria How did you get more area? I was a bit ignorant I went to at I spent the summer two thousand eighteen traveling Africa. I think I was there for somewhere around three months. And they always say you should take these malaria pills and the ones that always give me really bad nightmares There's no way that I could have nightmares for three months straight and also pack. That many pills. I just didn't really could as much importance on it as I probably should house but I think that I was bit. I got ravaged Attacked by bugs at night Like mosquitoes and some spider by it's on my face that made my face like glow up like my lips. Were like three times four times. The size usually are in Senegal started thinking Started in Senegal in then by the time I made it to average on in the ivory. Coast I had to cancel my flights might clams and just lay in a hot bedroom. Some random hotel there into decided to head to the hospital and they speak French bear. Only exclusively French couldn't find was soul of a person that sparking But found a taxi driver who kind of understood what I needed to hospital. It was where within likes five minutes of walking in the hospital. They were like drawing my blood all of this and then they gave me a prescription for the dose for. Malaria is just three times. The malaria medication that you would usually date so it felt like. I had the flu for like a week. Which is the area of the world really want to have the flu but I? It went away relatively quickly. Apparently I'm more susceptible to getting it again now. But we'll see you with your by yourself or with others during the trip during the Thankfully I was with my dad because if I had been alone. I don't even know what I would have done. That would have been the worst travel nightmare ever and I do really love Solo travel but I enjoy travel the most when I get to share it with people that I care about the most so I had to try to talk my friends and family into coming.

It and I want to do it my own way and it's a new tradition. She's like Oh yeah yeah. I remember you.

I thought it was pretty amazing going through the grocery store checkout with day in the checkout lady being like no wide-screen this time how fats fuck you can. I ask them privacy year yeah so then we go over to Barry into Migas House where to make doing the impossible. She's burning her T- <music> still understand how she did that because you don't cook the tea bag que did. She put the tea bag she cooked back. That's now that's not right yeah. Oh that's why it's burning because probably the thread caught on fire well first of all it look like a grungy little tea kettle anyway at first I was like Oh what a charming sort of Antique Tea Kettle and then I was like <hes>. I don't know if I actually put mateen at though I think I'd keep it more decorative. You know I'm out taste like stepped on a nail. It's like wait a minute. I hope you're going to get your shots. What's because that was a rusty Asti Kettle yeah it was yeah I was concerned and then she makes the and then she shows it to berry when he walked in and she's like it's supposed to be supposed to be green? Tea Green tea taste taste taste to taste the lead the lead it up. It's like I call this the rusty nail yeah and he's like it's black and a taste like chicory. I'm like please do not drink anymore. Please please do not do this so then they start talking talking about a speeding ticket. That's been left on the kitchen counter. which is such or did he get sent to them? I don't know but it was on the counter. That's so me like I got a speeding ticket. Mom just put it out exactly and embarrassed talking about how he was once arrested basically under false pretenses someone the cops thought he was someone else and then barry was like no. I'm not they thought he was a football player and he's like. I'm not a football player. We'll how you driving a fancy car and Berry made like a little Sassy comment and guess what he was hauled up to jail for like thirteen hours and even after his mom paid the bail he still had to sit there for ten hours which is actually like pretty horrifying so you know then it was talking about how hunter the sun they need to bury needs to have a conversation about you know like now that you can drive you know black. Men In America has to be careful with the police and to make us like I'm you need to tell us your son and he's like I will in my own time I'm like. Can you please tell him like now because I'm anxious about it. I don't want to sit here and wait episode after episode while you drag their feet on this very important conversation yeah that's every Taco Berry has with his son. He's like at some point. I'll talk okay to about sex at some point. Berry does seem to have a tendency to like not want to have these conversations. It's like hey berry. I need you to have a conversation with hunter about like not mixing bleach with ammonia. Could you have that conversation with him boy yeah. He's just about to go clean the bathroom right now. I'll tell him afterward so then we go over to the most exciting date night of all time Justin Kelsey wow we meal prep. I guess I will turn. I'm sorry I forgot to give my convoy signed meal. prepping you for just going to go to dinner right. After we filmed that scene I know like they literally watch them meal prepping and then just as all have lobster Ravioli and she's like oh how the crissy's out pepperoni pizza. I'm like what Diet has this on because I would like to be part of it. No kidding you guys look great. Please share your diet tips to that exactly so calcium like do you know what I really want to do. I wanted to go whitewater rafting river. The River Wild Meryl Streep's greatest work. I love the river wild. I think that's a great movie of it so I think Meryl Streep took a Lotta Shit for that movie and it was pretty good. I believe as a river God I mean I believe her as everything. Where can I say so so just as like well you wouldn't believe it but I've actually gone Whitewater rafting and I did? I had the level five rapids. Well I do because everything you've done has been to the extreme and they're going to narrate you because there's actually some hidden meaning and what I said but you have to figure it out and he's like Justin is such a dope. He's like date night is important. It's important for me to show Kelsey. I can focus on different. Things like congratulations. You can focus on going out to dinner. Wow there's a husband for my child like. Are we really this hard up for men in this in this world right now he's like look. I can focus on dinner. Let's have a baby yeah. I'm just GonNa keep flaring my is until you realize that you can have a baby the extreme ah so he's basically working working working working and she's like kip marriage but I'm working potentially working also we can have a baby. What are you talking about but I want to be a stay at home mother? Wow I know she's yeah. She's basically just like like you spend all your time in work and you're doing things in your professional. You should be doing your chaos. We have created. He's like wow this marriage. Shock is really just like how's everything going with that therapists. Are you going. Are you going to therapy yet and he's like well. I actually have a I <hes> the meeting and she called the therapist. I called but he hasn't called me back. It's been a week. I'm like this is a great date night. What is this you guys are killing me with your date might also have to say I'm not sure about this whole Justin? I know that he's a a personal injury lawyer and listen the last person you want to ever rear end as a personal injury lawyer. I don't know how much I'm buying because on his way to get shots he he. He's like I insist on driving to the doctor and then he keeps turning around he keeps like bending his neck and now Allan this. He's talking about going Whitewater rafting. Mike Listen you know you're supposed to be building evidence towards your trial okay. This is the best way that's that's true that is actually very true although to be paired with Kelsey who who suggested Whitewater rafting which as a nurse maybe you don't suggest that to your husband who has a broken neck so now she's like if I have a baby or would that be like and he's like well. I see a lot of family help like kidding someone else take care of him. I I don't even leave the kids the dog it's like Kelsey. If you want to be a stay at home mom which I one hundred percent support. I think that's a great thing then you know I think that means that Justin's probably GonNa have to work harder alright single income right right. I'm a stick. I hate when you work. I just wish you made more money. It's like wait a minute yeah. I'm like it's like I. I don't know if you can have it both ways guilty. I mean I just want to sit here for an hour. Listen to you talk like Kelsey. It's my favorite thing to do now. Let's let's just go through the entire date how the rest of the date went yeah. This isn't the most romantic storyline I've ever seen. Some people you see these storylines near the you're really rooting for that Bravo wedding you know and this one animal no he's like you know I really love Kelsey but we're just on different pages so I need to talk to shrink to see harm feeling about this like listen. Either you want this for the rest of your life or you down. Stop Wasting Your Time Jer yeah pretty much so now we go speaking of being stuck with something for the rest of your life. Potentially we now go over to Reagan's house. Where there's there's like a nursery which looks sort of like it's like a landing at a staircase? That's been penned off and so we see that it's like a little thing that people have in their house like they used for a little closet that yeah it's like some weird architectural defect that they've now rebranded as a nursery so there's like this giant pop art painting of Reagan on the wall and then reese just goes up with some acrylic paint and just starts painting acting like he's in first grade art class misspelling the words. Oh my God I'm like this is terrible and we're a tiny little dogs. Okay and we're saying this. I know they're like we're. We're a pack of nineteen in dogs and we're disgusted by you that top yes and he's like in Nice pants at an Oxford and he's like doing this painting so it's like what are you really planning. What are you doing here Sir like and if you're really planning to make something nice you wouldn't be in your nice clothes? You'd be dirty clothes because we sit there and really work at it. Just does something just throws it up there and of course Reagan walks in is like <hes>. Why is which you know of course he's GonNa find cute obnoxious way? Yeah we'll see totally does I don't know why but I just find it. Cayote Sacha fuck up like Oh my God. This girl is so filled with regret. There's nowhere to Waddell. You know what I mean. It's like Waddell Baby. She's so scared of marrying this guy but hey Reagan gets married like the good old American way like they get annoying. Just start dating. We went downtown yeah. At least she gets a free horse out of it and she I mean like the painting doesn't even make sense okay. There's a son and there's a tree. There's a dollar sign next the tree which is like which might confirm my thought that that reese probably thinks that money does grow on trees I don't know and then there's a cat. There's an image of a cat and the cat assaying nay neighbor day which is what a whore should be saying and on top of that he missed bells nee he spells it any why and then mommy and then there's like mommy understands like nothing makes sense about. Does it's like mortifying. It really is and it's hilarious watching Reagan transmile through it you know I'd like to write a thank you letter to bow tie because she cannot like. I wish I could really see what her face looks like. After all that you know who she's gotTa be horrified saying Oh my God your pain in the ass. I can't believe she didn't just grab that fucking painting of herself off the wall and just run out the door. That's what I would have done. A long time ago a long time ago and and she's like is this. We're supposed to be asked your boobs coming out of your dress like I love those things. He said. They're going to put together the craven's like so. There's like no map. We're going to put it together without a map. Oh hell the Internet yeah so she's like well. I've made a very important decision. I'm not gonNA tell Jeffrey Prank Man but this is not the right time to start lying okay yeah. That's not the line that you draw. Okay 'cause there's like. Are you just going to walk around with giant like grocery bags for the next nine months in front of you can't Sarah Jessica Parker this he'd be like wait a minute. Those are from our store..
