The bill will kick off in earnest today as the house ways and means committee. The education comedian labor committee began marking up their proposals and already there are tensions over the issues being voted on for example. We're told that the seven hundred sixty two billion dollars vision for education which includes more than four hundred fifty billion dollars for childcare at universal pre-k and hundreds of billions more for school infrastructure and free community. College won't likely make it to the white house intact. Likewise a battlefield limited resources is driving the fight over which healthcare proposals include pit into house against the senate and the white house. Now the dollar totally dictated by how much democrats can generate puts tax hikes and other revenue raisers. Which by the way is a huge area of contention itself. Democrats could find themselves with about one to two trillion dollars in revenue depending on how much they scaled back.

The sale of the tokens has generated close to two hundred million dollars for its partner clubs this year. They've got a good half dozen or so Partner clubs and of course fans who buy them and then try to sell them for more than they paid them for them. And there's a brisk business in that trading volumes before messy signed with.

Bitcoin trades at the moment quoting bloomberg tethers pivotal role in the crypto ecosystem is now well known because the token is widely used to trade bitcoin but the justice department investigation is focused on conduct. That occurred years ago win tether was in its more nascent stages specifically federal prosecutors are scrutinizing weather tether concealed from banks that transactions were linked to crypto said three people with direct knowledge of the matter who asked not to be named because the probe is confidential. Criminal charges would mark one of the most significant developments in the us government's crackdown on virtual currencies. That's because tether is by far. The most popular stable coin tokens designed to be immune to wild price swings making them ideal for buying and selling more volatile coins federal prosecutors have been circling tethers since at least twenty eighteen in recent months they sent letters to individuals alerting them that their targets of the investigation. One of the people said the notices signal that a decision on whether to bring a case could be made soon. With senior justice department officials ultimately determining whether charges are warranted the probe is reaching a tipping point as stable coins attract intense scrutiny from regulators. The us treasury department and federal reserve are among agencies concerned.

I can formulate a vegetarian diet for a dog. I can make a vegan diet for a dog. it's just a lot harder to get it all balanced and then to get them to like it. The pet food institute estimates that more than one hundred and eighty million dogs and cats are living in. us households and the american pet products association reports that americans spent more than forty two billion dollars on pet foods and treats in twenty twenty alone and all of that is rough on the planet a twenty seventeen paper written by ucla researcher.

"two billion dollars" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM

"Would be to be in the hall of fame it's probably even more difficult to have the support of the other owners I'm the only thing I could see is that they're desperate and they're no other viable candidates to to buy the team my suggestion of course is that my money is that Mike Bloomberg has fifty five billion dollars what's another to be what's do billion he can see what's running where he ran for about a month right and that was that was a much bigger waste of money but from everything I hear he's been asked and he's told everybody that it just doesn't really interested means in the seventies and you know his children not that interested so he's not going to do is not giving up hope that we'll find somebody like that dissing is about about no offense to mayor Bloomberg but if he's not interested in baseball I wouldn't want his arm twisted to buy a baseball team because then it's not as if you'd be sitting there saying what we got to spend some money away that's he doesn't care and that's his prerogative you doesn't have to care about but it is sunny movie Betts what's that's nothing for something someone else's money the reason he became a billionaire is because he takes it seriously is not gonna throw a billion dollars away just because Hey I've got plenty of them you know I don't know I guess this is where we you and I are billionaires you know if if it were me I would take the team and try to win is the easy that say federal three billion players to guarantee the win I understand that that's what I would do but I don't know we don't have three billion five fifty billion dollars you damn right it's been seven billion of it just make the metal winner I want everybody there will be a but I'm not a billionaire indoors Michael Bloomberg made were very very different people like different people you'd rather wasted running for getting debates that he loses and that's it I was a bill that was that was a billion dollars he was happy with that billion to debate if he's the owner of the met's Emmy maybe because I'm a talk show once in awhile but that's it right I know I I mean I don't know I see all these things there's no way rob them will try to buy the Marlins you try he said some of the post I would buy him for a billion I mean let's be serious here I mean if the team was going to be sold for two point six billion valuation you know they're going to get for around two billion dollars or more for the team that has been it's not by then I could do a fire sale I I don't believe that I mean you know there might be some pressure years all caps the uncles one third owner approximately would like to sell you hear you wonder about the the real estate business right now with the cold it's actuation maybe that puts a little pressure on them and made off thing did not obviously but yeah I still don't see the Mets selling for much under two dollars and you obviously know how met fans feel about the wheel ponds they want I do we certainly want new ownership had is the commissioner and the rest of the owners feel about it today do they care as much are they hoping that there's a new owner quickly what's kind of their field right well right now it's on a plate of making sure we have the seasonal yeah measure and the and the other owners but I I I don't think the will plans are unpopular among the other owners initially had a popular with the commissioner and the commissioner was voted in and will bonds were one of the supporters of the commissioner and they were very close with but she only was the mentor of rob Manfred didn't you know I know they have and one of as many games as you like but you know I I don't I you know you you're gonna get on me about this but I really haven't been embarrassing ownership I don't think I've been like Dolan or something like that I mean is they they do seven one as much as you like they did get the World Series in two thousand fifteen that's been up and down but it you know with the New York team we do expect more I will I will agree with that but if they're not if there's no pressure that was your question no Roger from other owners or the commissioner for him to sell I mean they've generally been no you know they won some and lost some and they haven't called as many headaches as some other teams as I'm I'm not gonna fight with you today today it is not and as a fan they are New York team is only of not one is much is we would hope and they certainly in the in the in the last since the made off they haven't spent alike you liked thanks that's fair to say the big spenders the Santana was a year before made off the piazza was almost a decade before made off so in recent years they've they have taken the less expensive route as you as you say the Jason bay instead a holiday and passed on many others would like I do think they will correct not to go for Manny Machado that that that would have been three hundred million dollars not well spent but listen listen we're talking to John him now let's go to the toy store all right let's talk about things that are fun they have a plan for the playoff format we know they're going to add extra playoff teams but I got a lot of questions about it such as if you're only facing teams inside your division and the other leagues division shouldn't there be an equal amount of teams from each division making the playoffs questions like that do you know if baseball is sorted out their postseason plan yet they haven't told me but it's not gonna be equal number of teams from each division because it's gonna be seven teams from each league hi John I understand it but let me counter that you're right I totally get that but I would still say there needs to be at least two from each division so to to that get one wild card that makes sense to me out that's what I wanted to inquire and I'll get back to you when I get an answer on that thank you I don't know that does make sense to me just to make sense the menu that doesn't mean that's where they're going to do it but maybe they'd be foolish not to because if they're only playing your division obvious strength of each division is a little bit different so you'd be giving an advantage to a team it's in a bad division that's what to me it's gonna be two two two yeah and then number nine you get that the seventeen could be a lot of fun and it's going to be in equities the the the the these teams are gonna play each other so right presumably the NL east your your division they're gonna play ale not presumably they're gonna play at least a lot and that's tougher than the other so yeah there are inequities but you can even add a little bit in each division you're correct I I do I think your your plan for our I think you yeah I don't even mean it via the interlinks advice okay the Milwaukee Brewers the Milwaukee brewers are completing for a competing for a playoff spot with the Washington nationals and the neither team please any of the same teams think about that they don't play any of the same thing I mean their inequities now and we we like that though John fair enough thank you thank I think about it as fair as possible now you know I mean it's the players want to stretch it out two hundred games two hundred twenty games and you know that might be in a wayfarer but I I you know I'm not sure there's time for that so let's just say they play the eighty games you know it's it's probably let you still have a good team when it's going to be hard to believe that you get through eighty two games and then several rounds of playoffs next round four rounds of playoffs and I have a good team win but you you you're going to have less chance that the best team wins here than you would with over a hundred sixty two game schedule it's not even you know when I look at a little bit differently it's not the fewer regular season games it's the more playoff teams the the fact look once you're in the playoffs anything can happen now the best team doesn't necessarily we've seen that a lot of the hottest team so if you're putting that seven fifteen men no matter who it is they got a shot I mean they get hot at the right time to win a World Series so to me it's not even the regular season's going one sixty two to eighty the extra playoff teams yeah yeah the six M. a seventeen or is it to team so yes I think you're right so we may see a team that's in the medal winning it's possible we have a three win team went in I believe it's two thousand six right because so yes it happens you know hopefully you know I'm sure a good team will work to to get through even eighty two games and then several rounds of playoffs would be unlikely to see a team it below five hundred win but it would be possible right you could be the fourteenth best team and have eighty went from forty in Fargo fourteen forty two it's possible theoretically I know this may not work for you but you know what really works for me for the eighty two game season yeah N. B.

"R. W. Joe concha and may I have your guest co host for the night Cooper Lawrence let's talk about what's going on with the home depot I I got to talk about this because it might maybe it's just me maybe there's something here that I'm missing okay so it landed billionaire Bernie Marcus he is so he's basically home depot that's his company right he has done the unthinkable he donated money to the trump campaign something he also did in twenty sixteen he gave trump seven million dollars in twenty sixteen yet now that he announced his donating to the trump campaign there's a boycott of home depot so is a devout Logitech hurry in that's a person who uses logic over a motion when I see these stories ominous I'm glad I love that about you thank you I have a couple questions your first of all the thing the people to understand if you boycott a store it doesn't necessarily affect the stock the reason why he is a billionaire is because of the home depot stock so in let's not selling as much stuff than there for yeah exactly so stock will go down no not really and it takes a lot like apple's a good example you know apple was selling its most money possible it was doing really really well financially and the stock was pretty low so there's not always a correlation between stocks are so complex and most of these billion has become billionaires because of stock because of the okay to you okay bye yeah okay go go don't buy a hammer fine it's gonna have no effect on this guy we understand though when you call for a boycott against this kind of attention right and let's see are conservative you really support trump and you pull up like in Jersey there's a home depot and Lowe's basically right next to each other somewhere where I live right and I guess we're gonna choose to get into some deep yeah exactly also the unintended consequences because who's really if you're liberal yeah right that's for you probably living mostly in major cities right that's very true you look at the map like two thousand sixteen it was all ran the middle and and then just by the slow cocina Los Angeles New York a blue blue you know and then obviously like Massachusetts or whatever all over the country cities tend to be liberal and more rural areas tend to be a conservative think home depots main target audiences tend not people living in the city the landlord takes care of that which I missed by the way about living in my apartment hope I can get a problem called landlord no I live at my home depot it's on twenty third street this is like for them in the city it's the best store but you may not have as much of a need say as I do I have a house a very big house but I have a house right on doing stuff in the backyard you don't have a backyard I don't most of the garage and have a garage attic like all all I have a lot more needs from people than say major in the garden state without a garden I don't know I know that's true that's a good old country my point is that liberals boycotting home depot they basically were already doing that without really realizing it Cooper but it's bigger than that and this is why this why I had a an issue with the Brett Kavanaugh thing because people just react emotionally without really investigating so what I did as somebody who leads a little liberal I was like home house I feel about this I investigated this do a little bit more and here's the thing you need to know about it yeah he spent two billion dollars with the B. on charitable organizations that you would be as a liberal really happy about he opened this giant center for autistic children lawman in yeah in in Atlanta Georgia okay he gave two hundred fifty million that went to the Georgia aquarium and a major program for these kids with all ism he said he gave millions to research on strokes brain studies and any built in neuroscience center for Grady health is a good guy two billion dollars he gave to charitable organizations that we can learn more about the brain whether it's autism or whether it's strokes I think when you decide that I'm gonna boycott this guy and I say this to liberals as well if you're gonna boycott this guy make a decision based on what the things about him the fact that he gave a pocket change really it's pocket change they gave to trump because this guy's worth billions of dollars against seven million dollars seven million for trump to billion for autistic kids or for brain re six to seven million sounded a lot to you not a lot to this guy Wednesday this guy right and he could be given maybe so save a hundred million towards these causes these good causes he went to the billion right about it yeah so you can you should do the opposite should be like why isn't this guy giving his billions to try but he's so supportive believable I'm reading some of these things on on Twitter which is kind of funny now I only shop at Lowe's Lowe's is benefiting from all this which we find out that the owner of lows is the brother of trump's labor secretary or something no I'm more than that maybe give money to you know something that you really hate yeah right now maybe like some anti gay or anti LGBT Q. congressman is a has a lot of companies out there you need to figure out who's giving money to do and then you know it's going to happen you're not able to shop anywhere you can't bank anywhere you can shop anywhere the Twitter mobs is so stupid this will have zero zero affect on home depot you're gonna react that their sales of only got up as a result of this what she is going to have more of a negative effect on your own pocket that's the thing because home depot has really good prices you're going to go somewhere where it's more expensive indeed that's what's going to happen okay so let us talk about the service talk about today so the call for a concert to step down is really fascinating to me because you know upset Acosta's leaving C. N. N. L. Alexander but Costa labor secretary appointed by president trump okay yeah he was is the U. S. that he was the US attorney in Miami back in two thousand eight yeah he made that stomach turning deal with Jeffrey abstain that after being caught sex trafficking and sexually abusing almost a hundred young girls as young as thirteen years old you basically get a slap on the wrist let me stop you right there what okay so this is one two thousand seven two thousand eight yeah our customer yeah okay prosecutor right let let that sting go basically write me to do any much yes like his jussie Smollett yes right okay so all that said Alex Acosta was name labor secretary basically when trump took office why did did Andy but do you have a problem with that then why wasn't FC bought up then why is this a problem now use it well because your charges we always knew was a scumbag so why is this suddenly a problem because people didn't know the depths of his skull do you know I didn't know about this I I just read all the Miami Herald articles that they've been doing shouting about for ten years new to me and it's new to most people I don't think people knew Jeffrey Epstein was recall or cared now that they know they're angry and they don't want the guy who let him off easy but it's not like he's now the Attorney General Alex Acosta is a labor secretary right why should be rewarded rewarded yeah that's a great job I'd love to have it he's been doing this job for the past two years so you take that away from because of something that was perfectly legal that he did say ten or eleven years ago N. legally sh I mean we've spoken to many attorneys about this it's it's illegal ash legal ishe yeah I was gonna go to jail for the no no he didn't he enjoyed the illegal but he is he traded information right exactly that happens a prosecutor's all time yes but this guy and he also political to me no no he also did not tell the victims victims had nothing to do with this this is all done behind their backs right that's against again said a violation of victims rights act so he did violate that so you know what's going to happen right now playing tight little ball on this nothing Democrats will call for his resignation they are right I know in trouble say I think he's doing a good job yes and what happens is gonna resigns Vegas now you clap your hands and you walk away right it's a push as they say okay right dealers twenty one you are twenty one no one wins and we move on to the next big story in two days watch you know why Cooper it's fun to be right you know and here's what I'm excited about coming up next our gas Molly Hemingway and Carrie Severino yeah they wrote that book about judge judge Cavanaugh that I've been dying to talk about because I read it I have a lot of questions ed justice Richard number one best seller there's a reason for that that's next seven ten W..

"All right. Bank can't show Mark data fan. Kane. There's got Roberts. Trump lost two billion dollars in the eight. Well, I lost my cable. This is this is the pricing that it was treated with with the bombshell status that had got last night. I thought so too. Because I I mean, I've read books about Trump or read books that feature stories about Trump, and then also seen documentaries. Where they talk about. Yeah. Delayed ABC early nineties. Yeah. He dug himself into quite the whole. Yes. I thought it was well documented, but bombshell. Yes. Lost one point eight or one point one billion dollars over the years, and no one in the country lost as much as Donald Trump lost. Yeah. So, of course, the media were all we're ready for it. Rolls was literally the biggest loser in the country is the biggest loser one has lost as much money. Right. He won that one. It's the opposite of the Midas touch. We now say that the emperor had no now, we know why the president wants to keep this tax returns hidden now people that win. Now. That's an interesting thing. You heard from Don, lemon, and you at the very end. Now, we know why Donald Trump doesn't want to release his taxes because for the last couple of years. The reason has been because he's been in bed with the Russians. It's because there's something corrupt there. When most of us were saying, it's probably because he doesn't have as much money as he says he does. He might exaggerate on some things like how far his drives go and golf. Different things that we've seen over time. Well, yes, he exaggerates tr. But everybody knows this. Yes. Of course, everybody knows let's say, it's right, dude. It is the same. The three of us have been talking about this for four years now. Trump has we always thought he was another change that hasn't changed. Are you telling me that pivot hasn't happened? We kept thinking it was going to. So Trump didn't dispute any individual aspect of the story in the New York Times. Sorry, the failing New York Times. Yes. But he did win. He he went on a little bit of a tweet storm this morning saying real estate developers in the nineteen eighties. Nineties more than thirty years ago were entitled to massive, right? Awesome. And depreciation which would if one was actively building show losses and tax losses. It almost all cases much was non-monetary some considered tax shelter. You would get you would get it by building or even buying. You. Also wanted to show losses for tax purposes. Almost all real estate, developers did it and often renegotiate with banks. It was sport. Additionally, the very old information put out is highly. Inaccurate fake news hit job. He knew how to win the game in the end. That's guys that you've seen fail so many different times, and they still end up with jobs making tons of money and you're scratching your head going. How did that happen? And he's one of the greatest salesman ever. Yes. What are the greatest sales whenever he gets other people to spend their money to help him out. Well, that's the epitome of a great salesman and someone that likes Trump's platform. Right. Yeah. And there are parts of Trump that you like and other parts that. Yeah. You'd rather he'd be different. But he's not changing, and you'll have friends that ask you. But you can't stand guys like that. No, I can't. But there's something charming about Trump when he fights against the people that I don't like. Just like your bully that fought the bully. That's been bullying you forever, right? And yes, I don't sign off on everything that Trump does or says, but when you look at the platform, and what he has done for the country. Yeah. I'll take it as opposed to Hillary. Or are you kidding come on? And you know, you look at these other people that failed guy can't negotiate his way out of a paper bag. You don't maybe they were trying to do it the right way. Whatever a lot of times these guys end up falling upwards even through failure. They come out. Okay. Because they know how to play the game. It's the way it is. All right. We got to switch gives to this Texas that I'm not all full of details on this. You have David happened. This was down in Corpus Christi. Jesse messo was picking up his daughter from middle school.

It's for infrastructure. My job is to be the leader and bingos as many dollars homeless possible. The ultimately change the quality life. Everybody knew city. I think that's one thing. That is incumbent your job. We have to have a good relationship while city and county where there was a rift for a long time. I think that's been healed for the most part. Let me give you one good example of that. This is a couple of years not too many people know about this. But back in two thousand seventeen we were close to the grizzlies ballpark being basically locked up and closed out for lack of payment, and the time the this was an ownership group at the city money and the county money a lot of people money we worked directly with the county to avoid that. I was successfully election in the owners of the grizzlies at said, you anybody's welcome to talk to the owners the bakers and say that had I not won that race. I'm not sure what the outcome of baseball would have been in city of Fresno. But because of this and our success negotiating the contract with the their ownership group. We've probably have the best condition stadiums at Rabanne. They recently invested about three and a half million dollars in on certain prevents your bottom line is improving the tennis's improving, and that's all good. Not only for downtown is good for the entire city of Fresno. To have the time. Yeah. I do. What is the status with the stadium? Now. I mean, there's always been problems with the rant and revenue generation at all that are we? Yeah. It sounds like we're looking a little better. This actually was a debated item in the in the two thousand sixteen election. We're Henry had said that we are one point five being a rent was the right rant has never going to change. If anything we should raise it. I said, no we done a study from the business point of view, everybody. The the two pedestals in part were not successful. Because there was too high would have to reduce the rent about five hundred thousand words currently at. So that was one of the reasons the new ownership group did not one in to win the election. So it was important that we negotiate his contract and this contract we put about twenty million dollars aside because one of the problems in the past was the maintenance of the stadium. You get a forty five million dollar asset. You've got to have a plan to maintain it. So we put twenty million dollars aside initially then on the third year every year, both the owner and the city puts in money. We did a thirty year plan to address. Things from cdn lighting roofs. And so on that stadium will always be in top condition and be a great amenity the city of Fresno. I think it's always been in terms of its quality. It's it's a show piece. It's it's wonderful. I was against the way that it was financed. And built in the beginning. It was gonna take a penny out of Fresno. Give us the land of we're going to do it.

"Earns compensation based on a fee, not the commission for selling a product. That's the advantage. You have with Financial Engines. So that we can help you evaluate now. Look if you want to try to beat the market, okay? I guess you know, we can help you do that we can show you investments that have a structure focused on beating the market. Do. I personally believe that you're going to be likely to achieve that goal. History tells us probably not so it would suggest to me that you should reconsider. Why you're taking the approach you're taking whether there are commissions or not so. Associated with the product. You should reevaluate. Why you're taking the approach you're taking all by the way. Here's another quick statistic for you in the world of investing. According to the limra secure retirement institute in two thousand eighteen investors bought two hundred thirty two billion dollars worth of annuities. Fourteen percent more than in two thousand seventeen and check this out in the fourth quarter of last year. The last three months of the year investors, put in sixty two billion dollars into annuity products. A twenty two percent increase from a year earlier the most money in any three months period since two thousand nine why did so many investors put so much money into annuity products in the last three months of last year? On case you forgotten the last three months of last year. The stock market was down fourteen percent and people were looking at what was going on at the moment. They saw the market was down at the moment. And they're saying to themselves. I have money to invest. I don't want to put it into the stock market of the stock market's falling in value. Of course, what's happened in the stock market sense. So far this year the stock market's up twelve percent, do you think you're earning twelve percent? In your fixed annuity product. I don't think. So my point is investing is not about what's happening at the moment. Investing isn't about what's happened. Recently. Investing is about what's going to happen over the life of the investment that you plan to hold. If you're buying an investment today that you think you're going to keep for the next ten years than what's happened in the past three months is utterly irrelevant. What's happening now is utterly irrelevant. What do you expect to happen over the next ten months? That's the only thing that matters and final point Kraft Heinz stock. You heard the news the company took a fifteen billion dollar writedown. They've got a subpoena from the SEC the stock fell twenty seven percent in a single day in buffet loss. Four billion dollars that day. This is why we don't want you to buy individual stocks because anything can happen at any moment. Any individual stock?.

Hi, I'm a Trump supporter, but I will be very disappointed. If you signed it. The continuing resolution back in December two billion dollars in it. They put a whole bunch of other stuff in this thing yesterday. And I just think it's a really bad Bill. And if you take that Bill he shouldn't sign it. I think for emergency resolution is unconstitutional. We don't want to set that precedent. You agree with that? I don't think he's going to win it in court. I don't think he'll when it in court, and I think it will be a horrible defeat for him at the wrong time, especially if it comes late this year and while anytime before the election, which it likely would well, and as I said earlier, I think that if I'm looking at this, and I sort of grew with Eric I think he probably will not win in the court. I was telling him, but I would think as a judge if I was a judge earlier, but I actually think the the the tariff national emergency was actually more of an overreach than this one. Right. Right. And there was an emergency emergency. Why didn't he do it back in December? Well, why why didn't everybody's gonna say? I think I think I can really look horrible. Yeah. Yeah. I if I were judge I would probably say why didn't you declare it when you first came into office? And then if you didn't then and you have a justified reason show me that reason which would be an escalation in the situation in the circumstances to the degree that that bit sometime between the time you were sworn in and today, it became a national it warrants a national emergency. And and that's going to be hard for them to show. Look, I it is a crisis on the border. But if you if you sit around then don't win something.

"Fledgling start up with just under three million in annual revenues last year after creating a global company with nearly three hundred million dollars in revenue was acquired by Zohreh DAS, the largest producer of medicine and vaccinations for pets livestocks for it was acquired for two billion dollars. Clint welcome and congratulations on a successful exit for your team and your investors. You're welcome. And it's a pleasure to be here. Let's start with your overnight success describe your journey at a backs when you joined what you went through to bring it to this. Great conclusion. Yeah. So when I joined the company it was about two point nine million in revenue. We had a six point seven million in losses. About half the products have been developed, and we had a going concern and our annual report, and this is after investing about fifty five million dollars in the company. So he had less than a year's cash left, and we were a public company so everything that went on was public and that was my challenge. So in looking around at shoe, how do you change this? How do you change this direction? It was clear that one of the big issues was people didn't seem to care and in finding out. Why don't the employee's? Here seemed to care about what's going on as far as the performance of the company. It was that their interests were not aligned with the interests of the company that was that was the fundamental problem, and they got paid the same. Whether the company did well or whether the company didn't do well, and they figured well. It's management's job to raise money. So if the company runs out of money, it's up to management to figure out how to get more money into the company. And so folks, we're not pulling in a in a direction that would lead any kind of success. So once I figured this out. I decided I need to align. The interests of the employees with the interests of the company and the shareholders and the customers, and so fundamentally what I did is I cut everybody's base pay significantly put in a bonus programme. Okay. That if we hit our objectives. Everybody would get twice what I took away back. And then we I let some folks even set their own pay combination of base and bonus. Got to set their own pay. If we hit the objectives. That's what they would get. And so went from nobody pulling in any direction to all of a sudden everybody pulling in the same direction because in order to hit their objectives their personal objectives. The company would have to hit its objectives. And of course, it changed the whole culture of the organization, and that was really the key to making all this happened. And did you lose any people in the process? Yeah. So in the beginning, I lost about half the company when I cut the pay I lost about half the company, but you know, what that was okay with me because those people really didn't believe and they walked with their with their feet. They didn't believe that we would ever hit the objectives. And they didn't think they'd ever get their money back and the ones that stayed were the ones that believed. And so yeah. So I ended up. Yeah. Kind of cleansing the company and keeping only the people that believed in what we were doing, and then we rebuilt from that point. And how did your I hadn't realized that was a public company at the time because you're really young company for being public. How did the board? How did you the board interact on all this kind of a change from what people are used to doing right? Yeah. So it was the board considered a very high risk strategy very high risk. And there was a lot of debate on the board about this approach. But in the end, they agreed that the old way certainly didn't work and that probably the only way to get the company into a position where it was self sustaining was to do some high risk stuff. And so yes, so eventually everybody came around, and we all pulled together now in doing that and one of the things that's also another picky area for me is the setting of objectives. So a lot of people are listening. This is the beginning of the year. They usually do it at the end of the year as you well now, and I'm nejra go into the year. You've got your objective set. But this is something that is timeless and how you set objectives. And as a company or as an organization how how did your planning your? Directive planning when did it begin? And how did you go about doing it? Yeah. So so it began so I joined in June and this whole process where I changed the pay structure and everything was completed in September October. And and so the fiscal year for a backs a bad time was ended March thirty first so April, I was aren't new fiscal here. And so as we got into the planning process for the new fiscal year, I asked all the department heads. What would you like to get out of this company over the next twelve months? What is your objective personally over the next twelve months, and I let them fundamentally set their pay. I said how much money do y'all wanna make how do you want your career to grow? What is it that you personally want and then everybody set what they wanted? And then I said okay now in order to achieve that this is. The performance the company would have to achieve to be able to afford to pay that. So then let's talk about what the what has to happen. In order for you to achieve what you want to achieve and that's how the planning started. And then the objectives rolled out of those discussions. Yeah. Once everybody knew what had to happen to be able to meet their personal objectives. We had everybody pulling in the same direction. Now, John Dore who's formerly the managing partner for Kleiner. Perkins has a book out now called okay, ours, objectives and key results. That's a program that he learned from Andy grove when he worked at Intel, and it's been used by Google number of other people now, and I haven't gotten through all of it yet. But I I grew up in the old Ambyo system. I like what I've heard about what you were doing in terms of starting with talking to people about what they want to get out of all of this. I think that's a great place to start and Dora Dora some of that as well apparently from the program that he's implemented. But he he disengages the objectives from compensation. Which I'm trying to myself figure out how you do that. You have any thoughts on that. Yeah. So the first question that came to me as we did our first planning meeting is the question was what has to happen in order for us to achieve what what we all want to achieve personally. And at that particular point in time, our gross margins were minus fifty percent. So I said guys the gross margins after at least break even over the next twelve months for you guys to achieve any of the things that you want to achieve. So that became the company goal in. I five minutes a company goal became break, the margins even so then the question was how do you do it? What part does the factory play? What part does the sales and marketing play what part is finance play. What part does HR play. And so we identified all the functions. Okay. That have to work together to make this happen. And then I asked my CFO at the time, you know, how long do you think it'll take? To break the margins. Even she said, oh, man. It's minus fifty percent. It's gonna take more than a year. Hold that thought we're gonna come back at him that you can tell us what how we're going to go to a break when we return we will continue with him and the secrets he learned along the way and growing the value of a healthcare start up to two billion dollars. This is Tom Lori. And this is the mentors radio. Hello. I'm Mike Lindell, the inventor of my pillow, and like all of you out there. I promise sleeping pillows would go flat.

I wanted it to where you can move the patented fill to give you the exact support you need as an individual regardless of sleep position. My pillow will get you into that deep sleep faster, and you will stay there longer. It's not about how much time we spend it bad. It's about how much of that quality sleep.

"Thirty two billion dollars here to explain why is Bloomberg cross asset markets reporter, Eric lamb, thirty two billion, Eric what does it? So today, we're coming up on the ten year anniversary of the tainted milk scandal in China and thirty billion dollars figure is actually an estimate from Euromonitor for the size of the infant baby formula market in China. It could grow to thirty two billion over the next five years by twenty twenty three which really gives you a sense of the stakes that are involved in that market now at current currently, we're dealing with foreign producers versus domestic producers real battle right now for the hearts and minds of consumers in young parents. So what are foreign producers doing to build market share Howard, domestic producers fighting back? Yeah. The foreign producers certainly have an advantage because they're perceived to have higher quality products that are less risky for parents. And for companies like Nestle, which has seen their market shared quadruple since two thousand and eight in China. They're actually starting now to focus down on lower tier cities. So the smaller cities outside of the main regions, whereas a little more rural? There's a little more opportunity for growth, so looking at ways to for instance, develop ecommerce or better better supply their products to consumers, their meanwhile, the domestic producers are realizing that actually if they have some kind of brand association with foreign cows or production from outside of China that gives them a leg up and makes them a little more competitive. Yeah. So we saw one Chinese producer, for instance, brand itself as American dairy, right? What will it take to change the situation at what point do Chinese consumers come to believe in domestic producers again? The problem is for some memories are still still fairly fairly recent that they're just not to the point where they're willing to accept it. But over time that might change, right. Bloomberg cross asset markets reporter, Eric lamb. Thank you so much for.

"So let's ask him. Kevin. How are you? Great, george. Thanks. Yeah. In two thousand and two silver was four dollars an ounce near its cost of production. We predicted civil would rise to thirty dollars an ounce within ten years. People thought we were absolutely nuts. Nine years later, silver, hit forty eight dollars an ounce. We weren't so nuts anymore. No, not at all. So what made you so sure that the price was going to make such a big move. Well, let the time silver was trading near its production cost and industrial demand was absolutely skyrocketing. And why do you think one hundred dollar silver is possible now solar? In fact, China alone is expected to need an amount of silver equal to half of the global annual mining production. That's just China. The whole world is moving to China. Just recently California's now requiring all new homes to have solar panels. There's just not enough silver supply that kind of demand. So we're going to see a shortage. Kevin all I can say is that some smart people like J P Morgan has accumulated, the largest private stockpile of physical silver in the world more than one hundred and thirty million ounces that's over two billion dollars worth of silver. I'm sure they're not doing it. Because they expect the price to go down. No, I guess not but could silver reach higher than one hundred dollars an ounce. Well, if you just it for inflation, George silver would have to be about one hundred and thirty dollars an ounce to reach its all time. Time high. So we think one hundred dollars is well within reach one could that happen over the next seven to ten years. But we believe most of the games will happen over the next three to five years just hard to ignore the potential and silver right now. Kevin our listeners are passionate the of anything that you can set out to.
