Gloria tells mike that that elliott is a mixed up millionaire. He's an architect. Who inherited the conway oil company when his father was killed in an auto accident. Elliott doesn't want to really be an architect anymore. Just a big game hunter. Now elliott comes into the scene and he's carrying a spear gun that he's all proud of its cocked and loaded.

Chicken cacciatore for dinner might tell them. Oh no that's too spicy before diving. Says okay good now. Probably order to and elliot goes off. It's just mike gloria now. Gloria tells mike she's unhappy made a big mistake in marrying elliot. Mike tries to console her and she tells mike he's sweet and she puts her head on his chest. Elliot sees this and is upset. What's going to happen when they go on the shark hunt the next morning. They are at the dive site. Mike cuisine i finds a shark and is ready to take them down for the hunt.

Steps to Help You Create Your First Offer
"I wanna talk to you about your introductory offer now. I coined the term baby offer. I dunno like maybe ten years ago. And i think a baby offer is just hopefully a a way to look at the first offer that you make that is less intimidating. Oftentimes you'll hear business mentors and advisers. Tell you like dream bigger. You gotta dream big. You gotta go big. And i think that when we do that sometimes we make mistakes and we go to big and we create something that is more advanced than our lifer is ready for or more expensive than your relationship has the merit to command if that makes sense so in other words if my lifer has just this is the very first podcast you've ever listened to and you're just getting to know me and i tell you i've got this amazing course that teaches. You need to know about business marketing. And it's twenty five hundred dollars. You're not ready for that. We don't have a relationship on that level yet. I need to prove myself to you. You need to invest a much smaller dollar amount. And see that i can deliver and then some and that it works for you and that you trust my way of teaching and that creates a level of trust then allows you to make the next greater investment now. Certainly there are always exceptions to this right. Like if i have some pretty incredible marketing in place and you stumble upon an add your cold viewer or a cold audience. You don't know who i am. You haven't spent any time on my podcast. We haven't spent any time together. And you have a need and we have done an amazing job of targeting those people who already can afford or already at a level where they understand making that type of investment and the return on investment. Yeah that could happen but more often than not businesses about relationships. It's about figuring out if we trust people and how we can work together and we build on that in the way that we build on that is by creating a customer journey.
Can you deduct charitable donations?
"Are i fire nation. We're back in as promise you're going to bring on josh of cpa on fire dot com talk about can you deduct charitable donations very relevant. This time of year fire nation. So josh take it away. The most common questions get this. Time of year is how much will charitable donations. Save me on taxes right. We're getting to the end of the year. People start to look at their money. You starting get those forms in the mail to donate to charities and it's natural to wonder how much less safe will this help on my taxes and for many people especially after the tax law changes in two thousand eighteen. The unfortunately answer is those damn nations will actually save you nothing on your taxes in the past in order to deduct those donations on your tax return. You'd have to do what they call itemize. And this is just a fancy tax term but basically the irs gets you two options on that return eve. You take their standard deduction or you add up. All of their items which include things like mortgage interest state property taxes insurable donations and if that number's higher than the standard deduction. You take the itemized deduction right. There's a deep into the woods air. But that's the key to remembered itemize for standard in two thousand eighteen. They double the standard deduction which means the majority of people. I think the last. I saw something like eighty percent of the people. The standard deduction is better than the itemized deductions which means they don't do anything for charitable donations. But as part of the cares act that they pass during the coronavirus earlier this year congress changed the wall to allow bit more freedom and deducting those donations. So as many of you look at who what and how much to contribute those donation dollars. Here's a summary of how the deduction works. What donations qualify and who can take. The first thing to keep in mind is that terrible. Nations are a tax deduction credit. This means it lowers your taxable income. It is not a dollar for dollar tax savings right so just look at an example if you had one hundred thousand dollars in taxable income. Let's say you have a job where you make one hundred thousand dollars. You donated ten thousand dollars to qualify charity. And let's assume in this case that you itemize deductions you. Don't take the standard deduction those donations will reduce your tax income down to ninety thousand or it's you're paying taxes on ninety thousand instead of one hundred thousand because if you're ten thousand dollars nation they will not reduce your taxes owned by ten thousand dollars right. That's where a lot of people get mixed up. They think all right. I donated ten thousand dollars a charity. I'm paying ten thousand dollars less taxes. Not the way it works. This is very important distinction as you're going to save roughly in this case. Let's say twenty five hundred dollars in taxes. Not ten thousand okay. So always remember. It's deduction not a credit. The next important thing to look at is exactly what qualifies as a deductible donation. Just i gave money to somebody. That's a donation. There requires a donation to go to an actual five. Oh one c. Three right and that's just the term for the irs approved not not for profit organization. This means money donated to an individual or a company even if someone in dire need if you see you have a friend. Who's just they have no money they. They can't survive without these donations. You go give them ten thousand dollars. You're not going to get a tax deduction for that. In fact it could actually trigger tax liability for you as the donor right which we've talked about before the former gift tax so if an organization is asking you for tax deductible donation they should be able to clarify that. They are in fact five. Oh one c. Three in that it will be tax deductible. And if that's the case i should also issue a donation slip either at the time of donation or at year end showing what your total donation is so your church probably does this. They'll give donations a summary at the end of the year. Saying hey you contributed ten thousand dollars to a three year. Whatever it is so if you're donating items instead of cash so close to goodwill your donation amount will be based on fair market value of what you are donating right so if you donated sixteen bags of clothes goodwill you're going to have to do kind of a rough estimate and goodwill should be able to help you out here and say all right. Those those bags of clothes were worth a thousand dollars. And that's what you're deduction will be okay so you gotta make sure that the to a qualified. Irs approved nonprofit finally. What's what's changed with the cares. Act that we talk about well. Unfortunately it's not a huge change but they are offering a little bit of help for those who wanted donation deduction but they don't actually itemize so for twenty twenty. The irs is going to allow up to three hundred dollars right. And i know three hundred dollars woohoo but they're going to up to three hundred dollars in what they call above the line deductions for qualified donations. And this simply means that you can take both the standard deduction plus three hundred dollars donation all right so for the huge chunk of people that take the standard deduction they don't itemize. They still want to donate. They can do up to three hundred dollars in still take a deduction even with taking the standard deduction so again please remember. This is not a three hundred dollar reduction in taxes. It's a three hundred dollar reduction in taxable income which will save you whatever. Your tax rate is on that. So twenty i would estimate. Twenty-five percent of three hundred dollars is what that will save you everyone. They'll be a little bit different. But it's a deduction of credit right so not huge. Nothing that's going to drastically change your finances but at least a nice little bonus for those who want to make a donation but don't itemize so obviously there are far more important reasons to donate your hard earned money than the possible tax. Deductions that go with them. There's plenty of things that look at organic organizations need helping the greater good all that great stuff all the reasons you donate to charity or that does not mean you should not also look to maximize your good deeds and reduce your tax on the process. If you can get both you can get the best of both worlds. go for it thou- steps and you'll be able to get a nice donation to a qualified charity. Need an also take that tax deduction
Their Service Entitles Them To Low-Cost Loans. But Veterans Often Pay More.
"John. Four is a retired marine corps. Colonel he served for twenty seven years. Did you see the big fish jumped for is giving me a virtual tour of his harbourside house in a development in punto gorda florida. He's got a dock and a little powerboat and can you see the pool. Oh yeah oh. That's gorgeous yeah all right. Can you see the kayaks and the dock. Actually four is making me kind of jealous of his house at the start of the year interest rates were falling and he wanted to refinance with the. Va loan that has alone backed by the us. Department of veterans affairs vets and service members are supposed to be able to an extra low interest rate and better terms that way so you started calling around and he says the company loaned depot told him we can do. Va loan for you. But it's going to be at three seven five percent interest and they had a lot of fees in there but it was a lower rate than he had at the time so he says he was just about to do the deal with lump depot when he happened to see an ad for. Va loan to a company. Called own up. He went through them and he says he paid lower fees and got more than a full percentage point lower on the rate on his three hundred and thirty thousand dollar loan. That means about twenty five hundred dollars a year in lower payments. He he says when he went back and told loan depot about the better deal. They then offered him a much lower rate to as a veteran. You expect you're getting something from the government. I i was shocked that they didn't just tell me outright. What the best rate. What's a lot of veterans. Assume the same thing according to patrick boy adji. He's the ceo of own up. It's a new company that helps people find a good deal on home loans through a group of different lenders. He says veterans think. They're supposed to get a really good interest rate on a. Va loan so many. Don't shop around but says while these loans are backed by the va they're made by private companies and he says some will head people with much higher costs and basically a worse deal than they qualify for. And they're veterans the. Sit there and think to yourself that this person who served our country is now going to get taken advantage of. And they had no clue they had no idea so in his company did a study. They're releasing it today. They took the top twenty lenders for va loans and looked at the annual percentage rate that the companies charged borrowers on all the loans they made last year and so when we looked at the spread candidly. We were quite surprised that it was as wide as it. Was that the best lenders. And the worst lenders were so far apart from one another. The study found that navy. Federal credit union offered people. The lowest rates at the other higher cost end of the spectrum was a lender called new day. Usa it's a new day for veterans. Who want to refinance at me as a vet. The company is a sponsor of the army navy. Football game it runs. Tv ads with plenty of american flags. We wanna do whatever is best for the individual service person. The study found that of the top twenty. Va lenders new day charged. The highest interest rates more than a full percentage point higher the navy federal which over the life of three hundred thousand dollar thirty year loan is more than seventy thousand dollars. More in interest payments new day in a statement said that the study has a quote serious flaw. It said that's because the study lumps together different types of va loans. That are not the same but michael. Hoon is skeptical of that explanation. He's the president of the non-profit center for responsible lending. The information from this lender does not explain their borrowers are being charged so much more than other lenders are charging. Their va borrowers as far as loan depot. The company that john four. I talked to the study. Found that during two thousand nineteen. It's rates were about average. The company is also a recent financial supporter of npr biology. With own up says the big takeaway from his study for him is that people need to shop around and find the best rate that they can and negotiate for the best rate. Because if you don't it could be one of the most costly mistakes you make in your financial life that's good advice for. Va loans and other types of mortgages to chris arnold npr
Cleve Jones: Queer Spaces After COVID-19
"The reality is that the Gayborhood are going away. So, if you look at San, Francisco's Castro district or Seattle's Capitol Hill or Washington DC's Dupont circle or boys town in Chicago West Hollywood or anywhere you want to look lavender Heights in Sacramento wherever you look where there's a defined gay neighborhood. It's not just a place where there's bars though bar life has always been an important part of our culture. It's where very important things happen. I is political power. When we are concentrated in specific precinct gives us the power to elect our own public office the the power to defeat our opponents, the power to pass legislation that directly affects our lives in our wellbeing. As we are dispersed. We lose that power. Another super important part of it was the cultural vitality look at all the amazing stuff that's come out of West Hollywood that's come out of my neighborhood I mean it's no coincidence that the rainbow flag and the First Gay Synagogue and the First Gay Film Festival and the Aids Memorial Quilt and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence all were born in the Castro because there's that magic that happens when creative people when choreographers and filmmakers dancers and deejays and painters. Are All in that same area and I. Know that collaboration can occur very effectively online but there's nothing like the magic of face to face contact close proximity for that cultural vitality, and then the third thing that's at risk are the specialized social services for our most vulnerable population. So. Whether we're talking about people like myself who are getting old long term survivors of HIV or queer kids trans kids who were fleeing trump's America where do they go? They can't come to the Castro a little crappy studio apartment in the Castro is going to cost you twenty, five, hundred dollars a month. So this is the reality that nobody's really quite talking about that that community that has given so much and strengthened us in inspired US moved. US forward. Being threatened and there's many factors technology. Many. People will say, Oh, well, we can live anywhere. We want. No, you can't. Tell me that try it. You know go to Duluth and walk down main street and hold hands no offense to duluth or any other city. You Might WanNa try doing that outside of a gayborhood. So we need these these spaces they're important and we need to figure out what's our next move? Do you have a solution. There's no easy solution but yeah, when people say oh, cleave. Cities Change well. Thank you for that brilliant observation. Yes. Of course, it has changed but we want to. Be Thinking about that change and the big factor is that cities have changed in a way. That's profoundly new. For generations since the industrial revolution, the cities were the place where refugees went immigrants, Bohemians, counterculture people, artists, homosexuals, and all these people of all these different backgrounds and ethnicities genders would you know create this these cauldrons of creativity and and they would climb their way up the economic ladder move out to the suburbs and that was really accelerated in the Post Warrior the nineteen fifties, the nineteen sixties, nineteen seventies, the phenomenon of white flight. So when I got to San Francisco, the population of that city had been declining steadily since the end of World War Two and we were able to go into these neighborhoods that had been largely abandoned by the working class immigrants that had built them originally. And create what we created I on Polk Street. Then on Castro and folsom street hate streets you know he's really vibrant communities. These are now some of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world. So the district that gave us Harvey Milk. is now inhabited increasingly by wide heterosexual gendered millionaires when you arrived in San. Francisco, you had a sleeping bag and a couple of shirts and forty two dollars and you were welcomed into this guy's home. You would never met who was not expecting you. It was an address you have from a friend and there was a safe place to live and to get on your feet. Even, if it's not as San Francisco, like that mentality is so unique. I think that's pretty much now partly because it's just so difficult to survive. So the young people I meet in their early twenty S. You know these and of course San Francisco, it's all tech And there's a lot of anger towards the tech invaders but I have a lot of empathy and. Real concern for them because first of all, most of them are working sixty seventy hours a week. They have no job security. There would never use the the phrase exploited workers to describe themselves but are blanche you are but I think also back then and especially in San Francisco it was still Kinda Hippie dippy. And it was very counterculture. It was very communal. And everybody was kind of expected and really encouraged to contribute in some way. You didn't necessarily have to be all that good at what you did, but you needed to do something whether it was a drag show or video or film or A. Poetry contest or something there was A. There was a real nurturing of people's creative pulses and a lot of support for there was so many places I knew where if I was hungry I just show up and there would be every night. There would be a communal potluck dinner. There were probably six or seven of those households within a few blocks of where I was living on Castro Street. So I never went hungry.

Proposition 25: Cash Bail
"Political correspondent Marissa Lagos is covering prop twenty five for cake. And she's also the CO host of the podcast political breakdown. Welcome Russa Pale, Libya. I. Can you take us through how the cash bail bond system works in California now? Yes. To do this I am going to make you an accused Felon Olivia Allen Price Right. So you're walking down the street in San Mateo County. You, get arrested on suspicion of possession for sale of a controlled substance. This wouldn't be like you have a little wheat in your bag. This would be like maybe you got a bunch hair win or they think you do. The bill for that is going to be set at twenty five thousand dollars just by the schedule that exists in San Mateo County. So the officers would arrest you and either you would have to over twenty five grand to the county to secure release or possibly depending on how big of a drug dealer they think you are. They might make before a judge who could either lower or increase that twenty five thousand. Dollars say you don't have twenty five grand laying around I mean really who does right? You would then decide whether you're going to stay in jail until you can get a trial set or you might call a bail bonds agency and what they would do is essentially guarantee the county that they would pay that twenty five grand if you skipped out on your case. So if you didn't come back for your trial dates. In exchange for that, you would have to pay them ten percent of that amount. So twenty five, hundred dollars. If you have the twenty five grand to post your own bail, you would get that money back regardless of whether you got convicted of the crime or the charges got dropped or you. Were found to be innocent. You would just get that money the just there to make sure you show up at trial. However, if you didn't have that kind of cashing around and you had to go through a bail bond agent that twenty, five, hundred dollars that you gave them to secure your bond, you would forfeit, you would never get that money back. The whole cash bail system has been under fire for a long time for being inequitable give us an example of how that inequity plays out. Look people who have been accused of very violent crimes up to murder can sometimes post bail if they have the means but a lot of people end up languishing behind bars for really minor crimes because they just don't have the money their families don't have the money and disproportionately study after study shows these tend be black and Brown people. If you can't pay that bail amount. You can't go to work. You might lose custody of your kid by losing your work. You might not be able to pay your rent. So what critics of the system say is that it kind of perpetuates the cycle of poverty. And potentially leads more people into crime or can lead people to plead guilty to things that they did not do or that they might have a good chance of fighting because they essentially just WanNa get out of jail and get back to their lives.
Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

7 Unconventional Tactics to Scale Any Consulting Business
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today we're GonNa talk about seven unconventional tactics to scale any agency or consulting business right now, so number one. Neil and I talk about this a lot I think during times this where people are might be dialing back their purse strings a little bit. You know you offer some type of thing where it's a no-brainer to work with you so in a no brainer example would be. Let's say I go to kneel and say hey, Neil. I like to work with you to provide at services, you and I. I know you need help and you can't really afford it right now. Why don't we work for you for a month or two for free? And then you know then we have annual deal agreement after that so basically how it workers? You don't pay for the first two months, but what you can do is you can split up the cost with the next ten months afterwards, and you can make it. That's good for you. Actually 'cause you get repaid on it. They get to save on cash flow for a little bit, and you get a longer term deal, so that's the first one. The next one is use project management solutions, because if you're trying to scale your consulting business and you're, don't use project management solutions to communicate with your clients, communicate internally and track time and hours on who's doing what it's a pain and a nightmare to continue to scale and grow by doing that what you'll do is you'll quickly figure which clients are profitable. which ones aren't which ones you're? You're not spending enough time on which ones you need to spend more time on as well as how people could be more efficient too, so that we can get more done for your customers for the amount of time that they're spending because they're paying a flat fee in theory ends up coming down to hourly rate because you know that you have cost and yet to make sure as Number three, I think it's really important to learn copywriting what I mean by. That is not just writing essays or whatever, but learning how to be persuasive learning how to structure sentences learning how to write less doing less with more a lot of that. Is that ties into how you do work with anybody really whether it's your your friends, or whether it's in business, but there's a course called increased on academy, and you know this is shared by our mutual friends Saieed, and he actually started out. What's his team and what? What happened was they got a lot copyright like they know how to write email copy now they know how to write all this other copyrights of Lincoln copy email copy linked, and especially I see the people that are writing good copy. They get like four to five hundred comments or so, and that's just awareness for you so I think you know taking advantage of organic reach was linked thin, and just in general when you email people being very sustained. That's going to get you more at bats for getting more deals. As a consulting business and discussing a number four is you need consistent deals new customers more revenue, because if you're not getting that one, you're not gonNA skill to your consulting businesses going to dwindle away. So what I want you to do is go look all the recently funded companies. You can get a list on places like crunch base, and I want you to outlying everything that they're doing wrong that you. You can help them with and breakdown how they can fix it all in a PDF. Send it to the founders and investors, and let them have all the information for free way of find is a portion of twenty thirty percent should be hiring you to fix those issues. It's a great way to scale your client generation or your generation side of your consulting business, all right number five is niching down. Down so here's the thing like we have an agency accelerator coaching program where we help agencies grow and the number one thing that I see that's a problem. Is that people in the very beginning? Try to compare themselves to the big agencies Oh. My God the big agencies all these big clients they work with all these people. They were across all these industries, our full service and they try to be everything. Everything to everyone, but keep in mind. They have a lot more resources in terms of capital and human capital as well. You don't have that, so you have to think about what you're really good at what industries are good at also what services you're exceptional lots because we tried to do all this stuff in the beginning to overwhelm you, and before you know it, you're out of business. You gotta think. Think about how you can be focused in the very beginning and the problem with agency type businesses is, it's really easy to become unfocused because there's a shiny new object every single day. The next thing I want you to do is streamline your reporting process. There's a lot of tools out there from Sem Russia's to address to what's agency analytics. Is that what it's called Yeah Raven Tools There's a lot. Lot of software for whatever nature an that help you streamline your reporting. You can even use things like Google data studio, but if you don't have your reporting right cause any type of consulting business you're in. You'RE GONNA deal with clients on a regular basis. Send him notes on what's being done and the results whether it's marketing or something else about streamlining the report creation will save so many hours from. From your team all right number seven last, but not least think about how you can structure talked about in the very beginning pricing where maybe they don't pay you, but if the timing is right, what you can do is think about how you can price based on value or how you can price based on performance, so here's an example if I get on a sales, call it somebody instead of saying hey. Hey We just charge twenty five hundred dollars, a month or five thousand dollars a month or whatever you know. I actually have a conversation saying. Hey, Neil, you know if we're able to get these results for you. Let's say we make you ten million dollars. Are you in the pay? Million Dollars Neil of course, and it'll be like okay. How much does it? It's ten million in profit or ten million. Right ten million in revenue. I don't know but yeah, yeah, well. Let's assume Neil is not you know meals, not the entrepreneur. Let's say it's actually like big company and you know it's like a executive like a director level. There probably would be okay with either or it is true anyway, so the thing is like if you can get them to say okay if we're GONNA, work together and you know after a year or so you know what we're having coffee. What would success actually look like? What do you want right? So you actually get to the crux of what they want. And then what you can do is, you can charge a small medium large type of thing. Thing meaning instead of just charging to five grand. Maybe your lowest years five, grand, five, grand, fifteen, grand sixty grand a month like six Grand Fu pricing right, and sometimes you put like you know additional levels of support, but what happens is sometimes people have such a big ego that they just over two biggest ones. No, no, no, we're! We're going to go for the biggest one and I've seen that happen a couple of times, so that is number seven I hope that's
Bad Day for Cash
"It's Thursday may seventh walking to market fully. I'm Chris L. Joining me. The one and only bill barker good to see you good to be here. Earning season just continues to roll along. We're going to talk about the delivery economy. The working from home economy. We're going to start with the war on cash and at the moment cash needs to call a timeout because cash giving its butt kicked square and pay pal both out with first-quarter reports boats stocks up more than ten percent. And it seems like this was less about the results that square and payback delivered in the four first quarter and more about the way everyone is thinking about. Non-cash payment business. Yeah I think that's fair They're interesting reports and this is not maybe certainly not only them but Lift for instance I think or pay Pals report sort of breaks down results into the january-february period And then the march period and then the April period and then go forward period so when they talk about rapidly evolving business situations Many other companies are in the same boat where there's a pretty happy story to tell according to the numbers for January February and then a big change in March and then maybe a stabilization for these companies in April. And then just. We don't know what's going to happen going forward right and true of all businesses. They pretty much. If if there's one thing one unifying thread through every one of these conference calls regardless of the business it's people saying but we don't really know which is totally understandable but in the case of pay pal the I totally understand why they are eager to talk about the current quarter. It's like yes here's our. Here's our first quarter report but once we're done with this let's talk about what's happening in Q. Two because what we're seeing is pretty exciting stuff. Yeah they're seeing. I think quarter million new subscribers a day. Something like that is the pace. They're on right now. I think may I was the largest increase or the largest number of new users. They've ever had This is an acceleration of the future. Really you've covered it You've thrown the war on cash name around it People been following it and this Accelerates what has been going on To cash and where it's going and pay pal has been one of the principal beneficiaries of this A little bit more so than square for the last quarter. But they're both enjoying the very nice days. Stocks Square is is is more reliant on small businesses in a in a way that pay pal. Isn't I mean just for anyone who's been to a small independent shop or a farmer's market or something like that where you know you walk into a tent you think about buying whatever they're selling and they've got the little square thing that you swipe right there so I mean that's that's probably putting a little bit of dent in their q one numbers but it's hard to imagine square not succeeding over the next five to ten years? Yeah it's the you know little white square boxes where Swipe your credit card that you come to know and perhaps love perhaps not love? I mean I have discovered when I am operating with any sort of square interaction that there's a new opportunity to tip somebody at the counter for something that in almost all other circumstances. I don't find myself tipping for this option to just would you like to just go ahead and add? I don't know ten fifteen eighteen twenty percent onto that Which doesn't occur everywhere else. But it's just enough of to guilt me into doing that often. So your and you didn't give specific examples but it sounds like you're talking about. Hey if I'm a coffee shop. Yeah if I had some change or whatever. I'd throw that in the tip jar if I go to an independent bookshop. I'm not necessarily looking to tip the person I'm buying the book from no and yet here a square asking me whether I might consider that So the little square devices aren't getting much business in an era where people are not going into the little small shops but the CASH APP. is Is is doing good business for them and you know competitor then. Mo and You know all the money That you probably owe me for instance you can Use either of those two. Oh you don't owe me any money at the moment you now. I'd be like what are you talking about you? You were in that poker game the other week. That was not a poker game bill. Man Be Twenty Bucks No I. I did hear that you were the person walking away with the money. Yeah Yeah and and now you don't even have to see bill man you can just like send a message on slack and just be like hey man then give me my twenty bucks. Let's move onto the delivery economy and help me understand this because we got. We'RE GOING TO GET THE FIRST QUARTER RESULTS FROM UBER. After the closing bell today but we already got first-quarter results from lift and grab hub and on the surface. It would appear as though grub hub had the better first-quarter results and yet because they broke even and everyone was expecting hub to report a loss and Rub. Shares are down ten twelve percent. Meanwhile lift stock is up more than twenty percent this morning. It's still down for the year but maybe it was The benefit of low expectations but first quarter revenue for lift was up twenty three percent compared to a year ago. Yeah well there's a difference between a stock that is up twenty three percent to get back to about half of the price. It was a couple of months ago And the stocks like Paypal and square. That are at you know approaching all-time highs off of the you know perhaps You know some of the earnings expectations. you know changed around their stories. I think for you know lift. Things are improved over yesterday. Mostly in the sense that the company has reported. It's it's going to save about three hundred million dollars a year on run rate basis On its operations by scaling back on some of it's expensive. So that's that's the better part of the story there. Really the The numbers declined. Of course precipitously in in March And and continue to be In April Over where they were in January and February. But you know the company was sowing pretty pretty strong growth going into the beginning of this For the whole quarter twenty three percent. increased revenue for the quarter. That's completely on the back of the strong. I two months it do. You have any teams like every quarter when home depot comes out with their results. Lows comes out the next day and it's almost always similar but not quite as good. I don't know if we have enough data because they uber and lift haven't been public companies nearly as long as Home Depot and Lowe's but any should we look at Uber reporting after the bell today and think. Oh yeah it'll probably be about what lift is doing. Yeah and in part because Hoover's already announced The massive Layoffs that were announced yesterday and that was I can't remember exactly how many people it was But it was massive In terms of the business so I think that they'll be able to quantify what the savings from that are going to be They obviously found ridership way. Way Off Right now and they've got to find saving somewhere and that usually comes at the cost of employees. So that is. I think the reason that it's up today aside from just the you know the mimicking lift is the. There's I don't know that this would affect the stock price but the announcement that it is a taking an investment in Lime and getting rid of its scooter business and I guess. combining that with limes I I don't know about where you live but where I live. Yeah we need some consolidation in the scooter business way too many of them and it's just again now. These aren't all going to survive. So yeah the sooner you all can get together and decide which brand is going to survive the better. We're all going to be. Yeah I have not found myself using any of the scooters that have plentiful an available wherever you go around Alexandria but Also getting back to Grub a down thirteen percent today. I think that the results today you would have to have believed that if there were a time when Grubb was going to have a great quarter it would be the one just announced So the fact that they weren't really able to translate to additional orders into additional profitability and have said that they are nearly all of their profits. the in the coming quarter are going to be used to generate additional orders for the restaurant partners. Okay you know being a good partner with the restaurants which they have been accused of not being a great partner to restaurants in the past maybe long term but you know they're they're a company that you would think well they. They be raking it in right now. And that's that's really not the case. Yeah this is absolutely one of those times where it's I think. Completely Fair for investors to look at a business and say it's put up or shut up time if Grub can't get it done at a time when there's a national pandemic and people trapped inside their homes. I'm sorry Yup it may be time to move on and where you know. The the UBER EATS is a legitimate competitor. as his door dash but I think that that will be one of the interesting things to get a from. This evening's call by Uber They're gonNA see the ridership way way way down but ubereats will make up Some of those losses For the company and say the other thing that they'll be pointing to is is the money that they have been able to save going forward With the UNFORTUNATE LAYOFFS. That are necessary. Let's ramp up with Peleton Shares of Peleton fifteen percent hitting an all time high although it's only been a public company since last September so but still a good day for Peleton third quarter report big again not surprising big jump in sales big jump in membership huge huge jumping in sales up sixty six percent something like that And the subscription revenue is up more more than that and this is without one of their principle items Really available for sale in most cases that is they're they're better known for the bikes but they also sell What I would deem to be outrageously expensive treadmills you might be able to comment on that because you're the ultra marathoner here and They sell treadmills which they can't Install right now because they can't go into people's houses and it takes a couple multiple repairman to construct these things. But they're forty three hundred dollars and What what do you think about that so? I don't have a treadmill in my home. I have never been interested in having a treadmill in my home so I I can't say I have a good sense of what a reasonable price for a treadmill. Is You know why that is. I prefer running outdoors. 'cause it's yeah you're from Maine. So the the worst weather that northern Virginia has to offer. You is like kind of a joke to you. Know to your makeup right. I mean I'm not a big fan of running in driving rain but yeah I'll run twelve months out of the year. Sure yeah and weaker people than yourself. Less hardy people from America really Are are willing to spend apparently forty three hundred dollars on a treadmill or will according to Peleton when they're able to bring these people these devices into people's homes and construct them in the meantime the twenty to twenty five hundred dollar bikes Are going like hotcakes. there's a panic buying. Apparently you know according to I think the New York Times of of these New New York Times readership probably intersex fairly well with Palestinians subscribers so They've had the largest class in their history. Twenty three thousand people In one class And just all the numbers up and down. Look Great and At the moment not that they want to rub it in but the nobody's really rubbing it in when they're having a very good quarter right now. They're couching their enthusiasm for results in in more muted terms than that. But they're having the last laugh over everybody who is trying to dance upon their graves for their Christmas ads. They certainly are. And it's not hard for me to imagine that businesses start to get involved with Peleton and by that I mean if we are going to. We're going to see a shift in businesses where businesses conducted. I don't know about you. I'm already hearing from friends of mine. Who Work in Manhattan and there in situations where a fifty thousand square feet of office space in downtown Manhattan and. Now they're saying well. We don't think we're going to need this anymore. And instead we're just GONNA find a couple of smaller footprint places out in the suburbs instead of fifty thousand square feet. We're going to need about ten thousand square feet. We're going to shift how we spend money as a business. We're going to be spending less on office space but we want to make sure our employees are happy and so instead of subsidizing their commute. We're going to subsidize their Home Office. And it wouldn't shock me at all in the next six months start hearing about businesses that are using. Peleton as a way to recruit people could be could be. You should Do Pr for them. I think they're doing fine. Npr FOR THEM BILL Mark. Thanks for being

Are You Paying Too Much For Your VA?
"One of our first hires years ago was a virtual assistant and it was a great heart because it took off a lot of pressure of doing a lot of administrative tasks in our business tedious tasks. Email spreadsheets appointments. It is amazing when you can get somebody to take care of all that stuff. But how much should you be paying for a? Va the first thing we need to consider is. Are you hiring a fulltime or a part-time virtual assistant? There's so many things in assistant can do that. Most small businesses have enough work for a full time position. But it's not the only option you can always hire a part time via at the start but I recommend a fulltime higher. Because you'RE GONNA get full commitment and you're going to allow them to be able to get used to your tasks your business the way you do business a lot more quickly so for today's purpose for today's lesson we're GONNA be talking about full time. Hires how much they cost. Now many people go to the Philippines they hire out of the Philippines for a virtual assistant. There's a lot of good reasons why many Filipinos are well educated The literacy levels are quite high Their English language abilities quite good. They have a sense of commitment Many of them are working because they've trying to support families whether it's their own no immediate family their own children and You know a significant other or they're trying to support their parents so hard work not foreign to the Filipino culture. So many people head to the Philippines they go to Filipino. Job Sites like online jobs dot Ph to a higher a Filipino. Va the other. Big Attraction is the cost you know. V8's can start as low as four hundred. Us dollars a month for fulltime work. I know that seems very low but this is the economy there in the Philippines. And of course if you decide to hire In a Western country the UK US Canada. Australia. You'RE GONNA pay a premium because that's the economy there. You need to pay competitive rates there. I've seen a VA star at twenty five hundred dollars a month in the US up to four thousand five thousand dollars a month now just like in any position you're going to pay for experience. So four hundred is starting. You know you're not gonNA find somebody with a lot of experience at the four hundred mark in the Philippines they're gonNA maybe have some clerical work maybe worked in a call center. They're going to need a lot of training. But if you're looking to hire somebody. This is my recommendation that has done the job before the has been A. Va for somebody has been an executive assistant with. Somebody can handle many of the tasks that you'd want to handle whether it's You know pay pal payments for affiliates or paying out payroll or handling email handling your appointments all that kind of stuff a more experienced. Va is going to cost. You know five six seven maybe even eight hundred dollars a month just to give you some perspective on how much that means in the Philippines. The starting salary for a medical doctor in the Philippines is around thousand dollars a month so highly skilled. Va getting paid. Eight hundred is pretty good. I can pay them more. You know nine hundred thousand and you can give increments and bonuses and all that kind of stuff. One of the things that keep in mind. When it comes to hiring out of Philippines family and culture is very important so time off. is a factor to make sure that they get their holidays They have leave. Go on vacation or take some time off their family Maternity leave because Many of them are building families raid. They're having children. And of course like in any position. You WanNa make sure you pay on time regularly because they depend on the salary just like anybody else now. It's a hold of a ballgame if you're hiring out of a Western country or a native English speaking country like Australia or Canada or the US or the UK and I would recommend looking in one of these countries or in Europe in general if their time zone is close to yours. You want to make sure your. Va has the same hours as you. So if you're hiring a Filipino. Va You'RE GONNA WANNA meet with them. Regularly give him assignments make sure They're able to maybe take minutes in meetings. And if they're on total opposite time zones as your work. Schedules really hard now. Many are flexible. And we'll work the graveyard shift This is quite common there. But that's a choice. You WanNa make when you You're hiring va so many people hire V. As in the same time zone so if they live in Australia Philippines is only two or three hours difference so that works fine. Many people that live in the US will hire out of south. America countries like Brazil and Argentina where they can get a view for half the price that they would pay if they harder the US people that are on the east coast on the US will hire people in Europe because the time versus not too bad either and I know that many people that work our businesses out of the UK higher many as out of eastern Europe or their English was quite good and they're willing to Work in this position for a below average salary versus the United Kingdom type of salary for va so timezones matter. Keep that in mind when you're hiring. Va My general advice when it comes to this topic. Is You get what you pay for? You want to hire somebody. Who's experienced? It's GonNa hit the ground running. That knows what they're doing that has done it before. You'RE GONNA pay a little bit more but it'll be worth you'll save time you'll save headaches you'll also get a lot more done. They're able to do more kinds of tasks of for you With just simple training with video tutorials I shoot videos all the time for Romania. Our Executive Assistant. She's fantastic. I show her. You know about five minutes and a video with to do She creates an S. O. P. which is a standard operating procedure was basically as she writes down that procedure. So that it's documented in our company and she implements that task From that point on and we basically did this over and over and over when we hired her week after week An offloaded many of the tasks that we were doing although basis which was really tedious and taking a lot of our time. And she's able to take on these tasks quickly and learn them quickly because she's done before it's just in the context of our business and that's why we're willing to pay a above average For Va from the Philippines because she's experienced
Biden leads Sanders with 61% in Florida
"There looking at the numbers up there in Florida Biden just crush Sanders sixty one point nine percent to twenty two point eight percent in Illinois fifty nine point one percent this is Bob by the way both Florida and Illinois with ninety eight percent of the vote in in Illinois Biden with fifty nine point one Sanders with thirty six point one and in Arizona with seventy percent of the vote in in Arizona Byton forty three and Sanders with thirteen so right you've got those three states the only interesting thing was was the one poll that day came out yesterday let me get to it because I know it was a it was and an overall poll and I forgot which one it was there was one that came out for Florida between in a race between trump and Biden and trump did better I'll find that one the the Univision poll that we mentioned yesterday trump forty eight in in Florida by nine of forty five yeah and over Sanders by by seven points I'm trying to find the one that I saw it must've been the Reuters poll which shows Biden plus nine and that is for comes down from twenty one from the last Reuters poll but then there's another morning consult poll that shows by not twenty one I don't really believe that there's been that much movement I think Democrats have probably come to their decision the article that I was reading Esther is trying to make the point that Biden was so weak in the debate were Democrats are now moving in the other the other way I just don't see it because Sanders was back to his old thing when asked about Cuba you know and then started talking about the good things of China will talking about the good things of China this week probably isn't the right way to go no not for the corona virus probably best so again I just I don't see I see that as an out liar pulled the one that said it buying just by nine I do believe that that Democrats have the majority of Democrats have made their decision and I don't even have to look at five thirty eight makes over thirty eight now to know that you know this thing is over yeah yeah I mean there is no road to nineteen ninety one on the delegate count for for burning unless by dropped out which is not going to do you think about this too the fact that you know course they're both older there has to be very limited contact because of the situation we're in they're not gonna hold rallies trump's not gonna be holding any rallies you know probably anytime soon but this actually works for Biden being isolated yeah yeah I I think it does help you know if if he's going to a rally your you got big basically you're on death watch Woodbine so now it's one on one interviews that's it and adds until further notice that's going to go on probably the next couple of months you might say at least till June right because he's a high risk category he's not going he's you know they're not you're not gonna have any gatherings I don't know what she doing fundraisers because razor where you know the whole thing of you know twenty five hundred dollars a plate yeah whatever it is you can't be don't you can't do that you can't beat you can't be doing that and then tell other people not you're not trying win so right yeah you're not going to have those those dinners of hundreds and hundreds of people for for fundraising so it so it will be really it's going to be fascinating to see what happens politically how do you run a political campaign when you cannot in for the first time in modern history running a political campaign and I do think that especially after last night that it would be the biting people would be looking and saying okay we need to direct our rallies and fundraising not against you know nothing is against Sanders anymore this is done we need to go after trump right and I think the trump campaign would be thinking the same right now but really when you think about it you can't really start running you can't start running aggressive political ads right now you just can't do it nobody wants to hear

The Different Agency Models You Can Choose From | Ep.
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm meal and today we are going to talk about the different agency models that you can choose from. Neil what is model number one the first model that you can choose from low end and you say hey we're gonNA take on. Small businesses charged very little money. And we're GONNA do. Seo In marketing for local mom and POPs or yellow page type of companies and we may charter McHugh hundred two thousand dollars a month. That business model you can get customers quicker easier faster but your turn is also higher harder to upscale customers as well yup another model that you can choose is far more. Riskier we call it an affiliate model or you can call a pay for performance model depending on what type of clients operate with but this type of model is basically what say. I go to one of Neal's companies. Let's say I go to Uber. Suggest and I say Neil. I'm going to help you drive leads. Neil might say okay. I'll pay you fifty dollars per lead right but the difference is I have to front the cash myself so this agency model. If I'm the agency I have to put up the cash. I I have to perform for Neil and then after Nielsen's good performance. He's going to pay me now. The good thing about this is that this type of model can scale exponentially. The negative is really being held accountable to results. And you can literally lose your shirt doing this. And it's very risky too. Because you have to have the float to keep the business going and then you know the other thing is if the client decides. Hey I don't WanNa work with you anymore. You obviously have to have good terms contracts. But because you're reliant on them giving you the cash you better have some type of backup Sarah because otherwise you can lose. Big sources of cash flows another model. Is You just do project basis? It's hard to get consistent income. It is easier to close deals. You JUST DO PROJECT. Basis hourly basis a lot of agencies run with this model. I hate it. Eric goes against this one as well. We both liked the consistent income but that is another model. It makes it easier one off stuff like site. Audits Web Design Shops. Do a lot of one off stuff like designing. Abc doing the. Ui Doubt Model works quite well from you. Just gotTa Keep Doing Marketing. Keep getting more users as well customers. Yeah I do want to go back to what Neil talking about earlier like when you charged a smaller budget mom-and-pop shops this is a tier above that word instead of charging you know five hundred thousand. Us dollars per month you might be charged a little more. Let's fifteen hundred twenty five hundred dollars a month. There's actually a lot of agencies that do that and they grow the revenues to a pretty good size now. You can definitely do that but the problem there is. You're still going to get a big volume of clients were. They aren't necessarily the ones that are the best fit clients for you meaning that they are more high maintenance they are going to be complaining more. Almost call it the well. It sounds bad but it's like the sweatshop model it's like an agency mill where they will sign a bunch of clients and the churn is very high clients will leave but it's a revolving door but because they're signing so many of them the business continues to grow the problem with that. If you continue to sign more clients you have to add more people there right so that's not necessarily a model that I liked the most and then I'll pass it off to to kneel now to talk about Amano where you can charge a lot more and then enter these enterprise type of deals Neil in the other model is going after big enterprise companies. Typically you get from our appease our Pisa requests for proposals. You get them from big conferences or the foresters of the role which is a research company the process to get those is very long time consuming. It's expensive but once you get a client. The chances are the stick with you for four plus years. The margins aren't bad. You can typically operate around fifteen twenty percent ten percent on the low end twenty percent on the high end. If you're terrible you operate around five percent of the people who I know who have the Type of business. The operating usually somewhere around like seven eight percent. All the way up to fifteen percent is the standard again. You can try to aim for twenty percent on the high end
Mike Bloomberg's campaign is polluting the internet
"Taylor Laurenz Tech reporter at the New York Times. You are one of the most online people I know and lately I've been going online and seeing a lot of one person and that person is Mike Bloomberg. I've been seeing him in my twitter timeline. I'm seeing him on my instagram feed. I don't follow Mike Bloomberg. What is going on here? Why is he all over social media? Right now yeah well you know. After entering the presidential race. He's really tried to make a splash for himself In the media so he's been obviously buying lots of television ads also buying lots of ads across the Internet and that doesn't just mean banner ads Oliver Websites but also sponsored content on a lot of our favorite. You know mean pages and influence our accounts. And he's been essentially paying these people post memes and messages viral videos on his behalf. I am curious about instagram part. Especially because I feel like that has been the most visible controversial element of this Bloomberg add by. What do those look like? Can you tell us a little bit about the Bloomberg memes on Instagram? Yeah Aso the sort of medium campaign that dropped across a lot of the biggest accounts like Fuck Jerry Moist Buddha tank Sinatra. These are names. You may or may not be familiar with but they have millions of followers on Instagram. And what they did is postponed essentially fake looking. Em's between themselves and Bloomberg where Bloomberg would say funny kind of relatable things like I have a billion dollars. Can you make me look cool? And then the members of pretend to respond through this fake. Dm Like yes. Or No. Or I'll think about it. All of the posts had the caption. You know sponsored content but even so you know people. People like thought that they were fake. Yeah some people's keep damning me like are these real. Yeah it's like it is really fake looking especially because of what he saying right like I have a billion dollars. There was the one about like having a car with Lamborghini doors a level of self awareness and irony that I don't think the real Bloomberg has ever displayed. Yeah exactly very self aware and very much like playing into how he's uncool you know boomer And what about twitter? So he's definitely also making a big splash on twitter. What's his twitter presence like? He's just been posting on it in this very during just away He's been calling people out he's been doing the whole brand twitter thing where you like quote tweets and dunk on them. He's been doing that to donald trump attempting to kind of clap back. But you know they also posted this what people were calling a doctored video this video. That was kind of remixed from the debates to make it look like Bloomberg. Were saying you know. Has anyone else started like a business? I'm the only one Chevy started a business. Is that fair and know? Attempted to make it look like all. The other candidates just sat there in silence. They played crickets in the background in reality. That's not what happened the debate at all and it's actually kind of a funny video which is slightly disturbing. Mary Internet very video. It's very like I mean people make those things about trump all the time But I think to see it as sort of like sponsored content. That video also went out across a bunch of Munich counts so to see these. We Macau's that are being paid to essentially distribute. This highly edited video. That a lot of people won't know is edited Is Yeah I. I can see why that would really concerned people. Yeah right like seeing Bloomberg. Come off really well in this debate. That people in the no no he did very badly in. It's an effective tactic here but completely skewed from reality. Yeah and it's also I mean it's blatant misinformation. And when you think about you know what a Lotta people on the left have criticized trump for You Know Bloomberg is essentially leaning into sort of some of the worst aspects of that So I understand the criticism I think on Bloomberg side you know. He's essentially leveraging a lot of marketing tactics that have been used for a long time in the corporate world These types of viral sons videos. You know very active twitter presence paired with influence or marketing on instagram. I mean this is just like marketing one. Oh one for a lot of corporate brands But it is. It's just kind of jarring to see it leak into the political realm. And who are the People? Who are actually behind these memes on instagram and twitter. Who are the ones that are creating this content for the Bloomberg campaign? I'm so essentially. It's you know people from a couple of different groups One is Jerry media who most famously runs the account fuck Jerry Their CEO and one of their creative directors is involved with the campaign. It's also a bunch of people from brand fire which is another kind of influencer marketing collective and doing things media which is a media company that owns a lot of other big large accounts like middle-class fancy white people. Comes things out so those Mimi counts really appeal to the millennial vote And then in terms of like you know his actual team. He staffed his digital team with a ton of people from the tech industry themselves so people that are intimately familiar with these platforms hiring from places like facebook and Snapchat. So you know. On all sides he really has the best of the best in terms of digital talent Also because he can afford to pay them an exorbitant amount of money and he's promised them jobs through November no matter what the outcome of his campaign which no other political campaign could ever do that. So I think that's also why he's managed to attract some of these people. He was also just working with average people to essentially do digital what he called digital canvassing. I think other people would have other names for it where he's basically paying people twenty four twenty five hundred dollars a month To like text all of their friends about him and Post about him on their personal social media accounts so he's kind of engaging in a lot of tactics With a lot of sort of cross sections of different people. So what is the ultimate goal here with the Bloomberg campaign in hiring these younger folks to pass around memes and working with you know the tanks tra- people and other big influencers mean the goal with all of this is just generate attention online? It's to make a splash Bloomberg has entered the race late. He's not even on the ballot yet you know. He just participated his first debate recently. So he's just trying to get in people's heads you know. He's trying to establish himself as a front runner and viable candidate And the best way to do that is to get people talking and I think that that you know. He's very successfully done that It's it's also like he doesn't have to play by traditional rules. He has so much money that he can kind of do whatever he wants and so. I think that's also why you see him. Embracing really bold strategies that frankly other political candidates would probably shy away from because they don't have the resources to necessarily see it through in the way. Bloomberg can we're when we can just dump tons of money see if something works doesn't work dump tons of money elsewhere So he doesn't have to be quite as strategic. I think you know some of the other campaigns and I mean talking about dumping tons of money and whether or not it works. What's the response been to these mutants. Yeah the response has been positive. Negative Obviously there has been a huge amount of people online. Who think it's Hilarious and funny and love it? Um and then you have the other people who think it's you know the death of democracy so it doesn't really matter it doesn't really matter what people think the point is is that people are talking about him that you know. He's he's being talked about as a viable candidate. That's the only thing that matters so in that way it

It might not because you may not have enough to actually itemize for a lot of people. And so then you're taking out how much the pay that thirty maybe forty forty five thousand out of your IRA's to pay that thirty and lesson. She'll add in that extra cost of how much does it cost you date net that money tell you that mortgage. And if you don't have to do all these huge withdrawals anymore. Get money tax free. I mean, the the craziest thing I say is a lot of people just not doing fun stuff. That's they can't afford. They say they can't afford it. They're living at a crazy one and a half or two million dollar house around here with a million dollars of equity or more, right? And all this money sitting there sitting there, they say they have no cash or no money because they can't get it. And can't give it because it's hard for seniors to get at the Bank. I mean, they they want your stated income. I mean, I had a fellow that he had like two million dollars with the Bank, and he couldn't get any money on it because he couldn't produce he was eighty nine, but they went no, we're not doing that. And so the poor guy needed money, and he just the best part of my job is I get these calls from my clients when it's done you saved my life. I needed this money, and I had no way to access anything. And now, I can live my life and not worry the rest of my life, number one. They want to stay. In their home. They don't want to sell it senior. They want to be where they've been for years. And most of the time they say, I'm I'm going to be in this house till they take me out feet first and this allows that to happen. Whether you're a couple or if one passes the other one can stay in the home and up to your hundred and fifty years old. I doubt any of us are going to live that long. I certainly I'm not I mean and the other two, which of course, dimension nobody gets your equity the other they're not going on title with you. They just have a lean just like a normal mortgage.

Because I it looks great. I need the money. But I want to leave the house to my heirs my children. Okay. You can what makes you think you can't. Because I heard the Bank is going to own the house when. Once I do this. I have no control the Bank owns the house. That's just so far from the truth. But I have to sit and explain it, and then they got wild. Why had no idea that this was what it was like. It's like being what types of cases are things that you're seeing out there. I mean, I know lots times as always about a lot of them's for healthcare issues, and they live is just to get rid of the mortgage. It's probably the top two, right? Yes.

And it's it's not just, you know, the obvious that you would think gas workers, right? I got a call from the landscaper today. I got a call from a hotel manager, and they're all concerned because they said if this if this goes away. How do we know they're going to say, of course, that Senate Bill one eighty one doesn't kill oil and gas. It's not a permanent. I like the way they say that permanent moratorium on oil and gas, and in fact, they mended it to make it very clear. It does not ban oil and gas it just those local control. I keep hearing that in every news report. It's only about local control. And obviously your district in your county there, they love oil and gas. They might even loosen up. The re restrictions on oil and gas. Why why would you be against something that just has local control? It only that easy, right? You know, our commissioners, and our assessor even went and testified down at the state legislature that it's going to get caught up in the permitting. That's the bottom line. That's what we're not being. That's what's not being communicated about this. It's all about the tuning. And you know, there's going to be one person from the industry sitting on it. The TLC, and we all know where that's going to go. You know, everything's gonna stall out. Basically, I wish I wish we'd call these laws what they are set a Bill. One eighty one is not a local control Bill for oil and gas. It is a do whichever one is most restrictive either local control. And if you're not restrictive with that, then goes to the state oil and Gas Commission, which will be much more restrictive. And I've heard people say that this this could kill every new oil and gas well from being permitted again in Colorado, this this this is to stop oil and gas, which is the stop Rochelle Glenn does constituents for those who don't know.

Those are bad policies. You can do this. You can do that. You're in step. You're out of step with your constituents on those issues, but it's her vote against oil and gas, the lifeblood of her own district, which in my mind seemed suicidal not just to her district, but hopefully to her career. What are you? What are you? What are you hoping for here? For her to go away. Ideally, what we'd like is. So we have sixty days to get the petition. Then we really in confident that we can get those done before sixty and just keep the ball rolling.

"To twenty five hundred dollars, and therefore, medical necessities. So emergencies that come up that families weren't planning for or, you know, say things like a dog may break a leg or unfortunately, get hit by a car or maybe come down with cancer treatment for that. So medical emergencies that arise parents can apply for grants, and we can give grants, you know, as little as like five hundred dollars all the way up to twenty five hundred depending on the needs and shelters and rescue groups can also apply because we recognize that there are plenty of rescue in shelters that maybe don't have enough funds to help all of the pets. They would like to in. So they can also apply I worked in a government shelter for awhile and our budget, her animal for everything including vaccines, and spay and neuter was fifty. Eighty dollars. So yeah, you can imagine that doesn't go very far if they come with any other ailments illness injury. So we had to do fundraising to help cover those other ailments that came through to make sure we could get them healthy and get them adopted out. So and then coming from the veterinary side, I can't tell you how many people wanna do best by their their dog. And they you know, they plan for as much as they can. But if a family hit upon hard times lost their job. Maybe we're sick themselves. Something like that. No, that's a tough decision to make. If something happens to your dog. And you're not sure you can afford the treatment. So that's where they can apply for that grant. And hopefully, get those funds spill to help them out and get their dog healthy. But also keep them in their homes. That's another big goal of ours. We don't wanna see people having to give up their dog because of a medical need that you know, they can't afford. So we get a lot of our donations through our franchises pet. Parents are very willing to donate. Now. We have such a wonderful community of pet lovers that want to help out. And then we actually have a lot of veterinary offices that will do fundraisers for us for the foundation because they see the value in that grant opportunity a lot of vets utilize our program and recommends their clients when they know their client can't afford one of the medical bills. So we see quite a quite a variety of donations that come in across the country. I can tell you this year already. You know, it's only. Only about a quarter of the way through we've donated about forty five thousand dollars to thirty five dogs across the country, forty five thousand dollars absolutely remarkable. Just how beautiful is that? You get to help out that many dogs bowel buddies foundation, really a beautiful story when you think about it in the years just now getting started you've already donated forty five thousand dollars beautiful things, you know, to be honest with you, Erin, we hear all about human animal bond that is what we alive to celebrate. And there's an amazing percentage of people that do some crazy things with their dogs. I mean, they will do, you know, beautiful things like they'll call and actually speak with their dog on the phone. I know dozens of people who regularly celebrate their dogs is birthdays more than even celebrate their own. There is something about hashtag give a fetch campaign. Could you explain to podcast? Family. What this hashtag give a pitch campaign is all about. Yeah. So we just did our first give a thatch last year, and it was all about bringing communities together. To celebrate how they take care of their dogs. How much they love their dogs, and how much fun to have with them sell people across the country used that hashtag thatch to explain the ways that they give us about their dog. And so we had submissions from people that would show. Hey, I went out on my dog's birthday and bought them an entire pool full of new tennis balls because those are their favorite and let their swim through the tennis balls or took their dogs paddle boarding. That's a big one especially out here in Colorado being able to paddle board with your dogs getting them on the water and enjoying that baking special cakes and cookies that are healthier, but also tasty for their dogs at home, particularly for those birthday celebrations. We had people that were showing how their dogs. Enjoy life. Like we saw a couple that dogs that liked to climb trees, which is very entertaining. Credible. So we had events throughout the country in different locations and people all came together. They got to donate to our large tennis ball dispenser. And we actually had a special golden tennis ball that was hidden in one of these giant dispensers and the person that got that. Golden tennis ball got a year of free services at the local camp bow. Wow. Which is pretty incredible. As they get to take advantage of daycare, boarding, grooming services. Whatever else that can't has to offer. And so that was a really fun contest to be a part of as well is absolutely amazing. I like I was saying when you put it all together when you put a conglomerate of amazing fun activities. You realize just how much people really love their dogs. You know what I mean? And that I could celebrate that every single day and just listen to just incredible stories about that all the time. So I love the fact that give a fetch as a hashtag where people can go. And still celebrate that you know, it's a beautiful thing. Absolutely. I think that we are at a level where getting a chance to talk about our interactions with pets talking about how to strengthen the human animal bond one of the beautiful aspects about it is making sure that we can make sure our schedules match. We can make sure that when we're at work or we're leading incredibly busy lives. The fact that can't bow training facilities can give the pats interaction that they need. So that you can strengthen your relationship with your pet. I think it's great that those things exist, and that you have over one hundred fifty Priscilla spreading throughout the country. I just wanted to thank you for talking with us about it and touting the benefits of doggy daycare doggy day camp to give our pets too interaction that they need. So thank you so much for your time. We really genuinely appreciate it. I had a blast being here. Thank you so much for having me excited to hear from people. And hopefully, they have some great questions. To go with it. Well, great.

Wow. And we got to talk about all the benefits from the social aspect to weight loss to erasing, boredom. And let's be honest dogs are gonna have a lot more fun seeing their friends and interacting and having a blast potentially. At a doggy daycare or doggy daycare. Of course, dogs have fun at home. But at a doggy daycare or doggy day camp what they get is. They get a chance to interact with and be social with their peer group, which is other dogs. And of course, there's the training benefit as well. And what I liked talking about a lot was just the bowel buddies foundation for forty five. Five thousand dollars already and the year's only a quarter of the way through is a nonprofit which gives these grants to help hats who need medical care or who are in need. And then of course, the Giva fetch campaign, which really just celebrates the beauty of the human animal bond. If anybody wants to.

And so that our listeners here the right answer going to school is not an emergency. So you don't use the emergency fund. That's what popped into my head. When you get ready to ask yourself. I'm gonna use x for the emergency fund. Ask yourself if x emergency is if it's not then you wouldn't use the emergency fund nine your case, your dial. In this end, you've got a pretty low risk environment for housing his furnish. You got a job lined up when you come back out. You're twenty four you're single five thousand dollar emergency funds.

"Hello. I'm Tom Martino. Your troubleshooter. Hi, love doing what I do. Because I help people every day of my life by simply listening to their problems, and really and truly I love doing it. And we really get results. That's what counts guys have any follow ups. Come to mind. You wanna spit out? Let's do it because we had one. For example. This company was getting so many complaints. They established a line for our people. So people could call in with problems seriously. They did it right? I know Daf has gone crazy trying to find the details because she worked it out. But you don't have to it was a health health. Mm durable goods provider apnea, appropriate health oxygen and all that and they were getting so many complaints people were frustrated they couldn't get through they established a special line. So that's good. And we should put that up on our Facebook. Let people know. Okay. So Kristen said, I had a transmission rebuilt twenty five hundred dollars, which by the way is an outstanding good price for her Subaru. And then she had it is a super right tonight. Yeah. Okay. And then she had problems with it. And it's under warranty. She brought it over where she had it done. It mountain transmissions, and she was discouraged with the delay. Jamie mentioned that they were moving into a bigger facility at the same time, and he was in touch with her by phone except for these last few days. It sounds like he's been in touch with her. And he's going to have it fixed. Very soon possibly today. That's where we left it off. And I'm going to let him have some last few hours for first Kristen so far as I said from what I heard when a business wants to come on and literally talk, it's usually. A good sign. I'm not saying, it's it's infallible. I'm not saying it's it's a guarantee, but it's a good time. So kristen. So far what you heard has to please, you at least that he's addressing it. I think it's super convenient for him to talk to you. I'll just be perfectly honest with you. I mean, if you if you look at mountain transmission, which is the old name under the BBB website, which I just did I should have done this before I took my car to them. It goes on and on about how they don't return phone call. Okay, and talk to people. So no he hasn't been in touch with me. How can I wanted to know? All I wanted to know was when give me a time line. They didn't never mentioned anything about moving facilities. Kristen all fair all fair. And again, I hope you know, what I what I try to do really honest to God is mediate and get it done. But there are times when we also have to warn people in all that this. I don't I I'm reserving judgment on this whole thing right now. I I don't know enough at what's going on or about the company. I really don't. But but I'm not saying I don't want to. I just don't know right now. So would be unfair for me to comment. Okay. Jamie. You said it might be done today. But you don't run into more problems? And then I wanted to know if he had any last words, go ahead, sir. You know, Tom. I did you know. I mean, I appreciate you giving us the opportunity to talk because you know, unfortunately, consumers, they don't see, you know, the business aspect of it. I mean, I I can understand where they're coming from his, you know, they had their transmission repair that mice operating shop and they take him in. And they're having issues. Right. Okay. Right. You know, the situation whether it is is that, you know, when Kristen contacted us, you know, she she has been in contact with us, you know, regardless of that being said or not Chris and Texas me on my phone probably fifteen times a day. My messages, and we have them on our fault. You know, tell I mean, this is the issue. You know, anytime you purchase anything, that's electrical. You know? I mean, when you get that part, you're relying that that part is good. There's no way of looking at that item, and knowing if it's bad or if it's good, you know, so when you install those things you have to make sure that they're going to operate and work, and then you have no recourse, but to get back to the customer. I mean, and that's regardless if you have an automotive repair, or if you're purchasing TV from a from a store or anything, I mean, it's a risk that you're taking you know. And unfortunately, what happens is and you see what time you purchasing electric quieter, regardless. It's from my shop, or you know, two of the major franchises or anywhere that dealership once these parts are installed. But you know, they don't want you to let him out. I mean, you know, and that's what it comes down to you know. So when these things go bad, you know, I mean, we're we're taking care of the repair for the customer basically for free. The biggest problem here. Jamie, jamie. I think the biggest problem is is simple. I mean, it was communication. She felt left out in the wind. I think that's it. It all boils down to that. You know, and I can understand that. But you know, but that's not what's going on here. I mean, she has been in constant communication with us every single day. She calls are phone. And you know, what she basically tells us is that she wants an update, and we've told her the same thing, you know. That's what's going on. You know, we're waiting for this item to come in and wants to know whether he's right or wrong. You are coming off a little blaming to the consumer. That's seriously. That's just my take on it. I don't think the guy did anything wrong. But I I don't think you're I don't think you're coming off. Great right now. Why Mark why? You know, and we're not what he what he say. Wait a minute. I'm not taking sides here. I don't know Jamie's baccarat. Here's what I'm saying. He's saying I have been in touch with her. And she saying he hasn't been. But Mark if someone kept saying you've never been in touch me, you ignore me, you do this. And I knew that I had been talking to if that is true. What would be wrong with pointing out to me? It's to me. It just doesn't even matter at that point. If it's under warranty, just get it fixed. And he says say, hey, we're gonna now here's what I'd say, regardless if I couldn't stand the woman, I don't care if I thought she was the worst customer in the world when I came on the air what I would say and I did this row. Many years, Tom, I would say, you know, what we're gonna get this woman handled it's under warranty. And I'm sorry for any issues. We're gonna get it done. He did say that. But he gave an excuse. He said they were moving facilities. Yup. And then he said I asked he didn't bring it up. I asked I said what about the communication or she said, you haven't called her or then she said that he said I've been in constant communications and Kristen. Swears he hasn't been. But here's the point. I wanna make with Kristen everyone else. Because I I agree with you, Mark. You have a limited time to shine. When you're in business. You get a complaint perception is reality. Okay. Perception is reality. Unfortunately, it is. Okay. If they think this about you you have to just move on. And you can't defend each and every a slight. But but Kristen this is not directed towards you directly. But the syndrome that I see and you have typified it. And that is when you've been frustrated as you have been for one reason or another, and again, you've been frustrated and you're at wits end, and the guy is even even if he was lying if he's giving in saying, okay, I'm going to try to have it done by the end of the day, blah, blah, blah, blah, even if they lie totally and I've said this tomorrow before there is no harm in waiting a little longer to say without saying, you have told me that ten other times or or without being upset. In other words, there's no point in throwing up the pass and saying they've done this. And and I looked the better business. I'm not saying it's not. True. Kristen I'm saying when you have someone there's a there's two possibilities either. He's lying through his teeth. Just wants to get off the phone, and he's gonna forget about you. Or the second possibility. He's gonna do what he's saying. And under either possibility bringing up all this stuff about reviews and how he did this. And how you do that really has. It doesn't do any good. And I find this a lot of times if I get someone willing to help. And if it's let's say if it's for nothing more than we called. Okay. Let's get this problem fixed. Then you can say I had a terrible experience. And all that. And it sounds like he's going to handle it. I had to bet on this. I bet it's going to be handled quake. Yeah. So anyway, again, I'm going to reserve judgment until we see what happens three zero three seven one three top. But this show does have a purpose. The other thing real quick on that same topic with contractors. You know what I get? Sometimes it drives me crazy. But I understand the consumer. They. Say, hey, we're gonna have this basement done by X amount of time, you know, by the holidays, so you can have family over its running late next thing. You know, every other thing is a problem everything. That's it. Doesn't matter. What it is the littlest tiny K, Mark. You're right. You are. Absolutely, right. And this is what we call collecting injustices. But it starts from the initial cut when there is a cut then everything else irritates it or the headache. And you're right, Mark, somebody makes a mistake. And it what we call sets the stage. Now, the consumers looking for every single problem. They can find to justify being upset. You're right because sometimes a contractor or vendor a mechanic. They can make a mistake. But then they make up for it. And they want to continue and they want to do a good job. But the consumer is hell bent on finding problems. That's true. But that. Is started by usually the vendor. I agree. It starts. I agree. Even an so so that's why tell vendors don't let it start. And if it does there are ways to correct it. One of the biggest problems have vendor has is trying to defend it you'll never ever ever win. Because their perception is their reality. I had one just real quick. Basically what I was talking about job wasn't done on time. But it wasn't horrible. She sent me an Email. He promised he'd be here at nine AM. He wasn't. He was late. I e back what time did he get there nine five honest to God is to God. I didn't even know what to do five point was. It's not the first time. It's every time I three zero three seven one three talks are number. It's car day. We have Jeff Kimber transmissions, Nick yahtzee flexibility of Colorado and Ron night premium.
