Now what's going on with the show. Hey i'm back. It's thursday we're gonna do another solo episode and today i'm going to talk about and share seven signs that you will become a successful entrepreneur now for those that are new to the podcast. I've been and entrepreneur for twenty five years have had some success have add. Some failure been very fortunate. Done over two hundred million dollars as an entrepreneur. So i've made a lot of mistakes. But i've also thousands of other entrepreneurs and what i will call want preneurs right and so i've met a lot of people in the entrepreneurial space over the last twenty five years during my career and these signs these lessons these seven tips. And i'm going to give you today really. I'm pulling from that whole entire twenty five year career from my personal experience as well as from what i've observed thousands of other entrepreneurs so get ready. Jot down some notes right number one on the list is entrepreneurs are competitive. If your competitive that is a great sign that you could become a successful entrepreneur. Why because number one competition prevents you from getting complacent complacency is the enemy of success in any realm. Right whether that being your personal life your social life your business life or any part of your life complacency is never ever a good thing and being competitive also sparks innovation. Because you are always trying to one up your competition so being competitive is a great sign. That's why it's number one number two on the list. You're always learning. This is the skill. This is the sign that i attribute to the majority of my success over throughout my career. I consider myself to be a lifelong learner in the top entrepreneurs that i know are always reading learning and developing new skills so being a lifelong learner and always learning is definitely key to success as an entrepreneur. Number three is you have grit now. What is grit. I've heard grip defined a variety of different ways. But the way i like to hear. A best is grit. Is that other driver of success. That goes beyond talent. That goes beyond intelligence without grit talent. And you know in intelligence you know is could be nothing more than unmet. Potential wikipedia defines it as grit is positive. Non cognitive trait based on an individual's perseverance of effort combined with the passion for a particular long term goal or end state. I think those two words. Perseverance and passion really connect the dots draw the picture above and beyond intelligence and talent number four on the list. Is you hang out with people that are smarter than you. This is something that i learned very early on from different mentors in that as you never wanna be the smartest guy or girl in the room you always want to surround yourself with people that are smarter than you more talented you more successful than you. If you hang around with those people you know you will raise your level. They will help to raise your level. So that's definitely a cardinal rule of success as an entrepreneur number. Five is pretty much a no brainer. But you value hard work. Now you've heard the old adage. If hard work were the secret to success every ditch digger would be a millionaire. And i get that analogy but the fact is no matter how smart you are no matter how smart you're able to work. Hard work is still a prerequisite to become a successful entrepreneur. Even if you work smart you have to also work hard and you have to value hard work. The reality is most entrepreneurs would tell you that. They don't consider what they do work. Yes it can be hard yes it can be challenging yes it can be frustrating but ultimately they love their job. They love their mission. They love their work. And so it's not exactly what you'd call hard work. But ultimately valuing hard work is definitely a sign that you could become a successful entrepreneur. Number six on the list is an important one. And it's the that you embrace change you know one of the constants in business is change so if you're not able to adapt quickly and that you resist change becoming a successful launch nor is definitely going to be challenging. You know again. i'll say it again. You have to embrace change. Things are going to change depending upon your industry depending upon the technology depending upon the political climate depending upon the global economic climate things change rapidly in business and ultimately if you are not able to embrace change. You're going to struggle so number six on the list is your ability to embrace change and last but not least number seven you seek out advice and mentors. This goes hand in hand with number two on the list. Which is you're always learning and number four. You hang out with people that are smarter than you. The fact is seeking out advice and mentors is probably one of the best signs that you can become successful as an entrepreneur perfect example. I have a weekly mastermind. That i've been involved with at different times throughout my career for many many years. I currently have a mastermind. We meet once a week. There's four of us. They're all very successful business owners. And the fact is i go to them on a regular basis for advice and some of them have even come become mentors because they are experts in their space and so ultimately seeking out advice and mentors is definitely a powerful strategy in a great sign that you can become a successful entrepreneur all right and in an effort to save you from rewinding this podcast. I'm going to review them really quick number one. You're competitive number two. You're always learning number three. You have grit number four. You hang out with people that are smarter than you number five you value hard work number six you embrace change and number seven you seek out advice and mentors listen. I hope you guys enjoyed this.

Turning Down Work That's Not a Fit

"The. Hey there I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm heaven days. Join us on our journey to building one hundred million dollars company. As a company that is looking to grow aggressively. You may think that we are taking on all sorts of work anywhere. That comes our way. You would think we're going to gobble it up because we're trying to get two hundred million dollars in revenue and if a project can contribute to that. Then we'll take it on right? Wrong. So we are not going to take on work just because there's a dollar sign associated with it. The work has to be a good fit for us. I think I've talked before about the concept of the fifteen minute phone call at the beginning of the conversation with a prospect. So no matter how they contact us. It could be with the phone call it could be a referral or it could be a contact us form submission the first in that. We do is. We have a conversation with them over the phone where we determine how fit they are to be a client of our. So it's really a two-way interview. They'll be asking us questions about what we do. But we ask them questions about what they do what kind of company they are how aggressively they wanna grow what their budget is what industry they're in. And what their concepts are for marketing if their answers don't align with what we want out of clients. We will tell them on the spot. You know, what this isn't really fit, and it shouldn't matter how many dollar signs come with that opportunity, if it's not a fit, it's not a fit, and we're not going to do. Good job for them. No matter how hard we try. Why? So we try very much so very beginning of the conversation to determine if they're fit, and even then we wanna grow to be a very very big company. If we take on the hour signs and projects that aren't a fit we're going to fail. So for that reason, we always screen and only bring on kinds that are fit for us. It's a hard thing for companies to do if you are working at the beginning of your entrepreneurial journey and you're struggling, and especially if you need money, and I get it. We were there for a long long time where we anything because we need the money. It's very hard decision to make. Find what it is the you want to do day in and day out. What kind of work it is? And what kind of client you want? And when a client or opportunity comes along that's a fit, then it's a hell. Yes. Jump on it if a client comes along, and it's not if it you have to knowledge as quickly as possible don't make the mistake that I made which is trying to shoot horn them into your organization, the people that work for you don't understand the concepts that this company's talking about they don't understand the industry they're in. If it's not a fit is not a fit. No matter. How hard you push us not going to be fit so avoided because a lot of times. It's just going to end in disaster. What I want to do is think about who. The people are in the process are at that are fit and go after them figure out where the hang out and try to get as many of those as possible. Thank you for listening. I hope you heard something you can implement in your business right away. Vina's online at journey to one hundred million dot com.

How to spot a pyramid scheme - Stacie Bosley

"<music> in two thousand four a new company could vima nutrition started offering a life changing opportunity to earn full time income for part time work. The offer was open to everybody. Regardless prior experience or education though early two steps to get started earning purchase of five hundred to six hundred dollar kit of liquid nutrition products. I'm recruit route two more members to do the same vima nutrition company grew quickly becoming a global operation that brought in thirty thousand new members per month at its peak peak. There was just one problem while the company generated two hundred million dollars of annual revenue by two thousand thirteen the vast majority of participants pence and less than they paid in vima was eventually charged with operating a pyramid scheme a common type of fraud where members make money by recruiting more people pulled to buy in typically the founder solicits an initial group of people to buy in on promote the scheme they are then encouraged to recruit others and promised part of the the money those people invest while the founder also takes a share the positive repeats for each group of new participants with money from recent arrivals funneled hold those who recruited them this differs from ponzi scheme by the founders recruit new members and secretly use their fees to pay existing members who think the payments come. I'm from a legitimate investment as a pyramid scheme grows. It becomes increasingly difficult for new recruits to make money. That's because the number of participants expands exponentially take a structure where each person has to recruit six people to earn a profit. The found recruits six people to start on each of them a._m. Recruits six more there are thirty six people in that second round of recruits who then each recruit six people a total of two hundred sixteen new recruits by the twelfth round of recruiting the two point one billion u._s. members would have to recruit over thirteen billion more people total to make money more than the entire world population in this scenario. The most recent recruits over eighty percent of the schemes participants <music> all the money they paid in an in real life many earlier join us lose out to pyramid schemes are illegal in most countries but they can can be difficult to detect presented as many different things including gifting groups investment clubs and multi level marketing businesses. The distinction addiction between pyramid schemes multilevel marketing can be particularly hasty in theory. The difference is that the members of the multilevel marketing companies primarily earned compensation from selling a particular product or a service to retail customers while pyramid schemes primarily compensate members for recruitment of new saleh's in practice though many multilevel marketing companies make it all but impossible for members to prophet purely through sales and many pyramid schemes like vima nutrition disguise themselves as legal multilevel marketing businesses using a product or service to hide the pain recruits structure many any pyramid schemes also capitalize on already existing trust within churches immigrant communities or other tightly knit groups. The first few members are encouraged urge to report a good experience before they actually start making a profit others in network follow their example and the schemes balloon in size before it becomes clear that most members aren't actually profiting often the victims are embarrassed into silence pyramid schemes and place people with the promise of opportunity and impoundment so when members don't end up making money they can blame themselves rather than the scheme thinking they want to nations enough to earn the returns promised <music> some victims keep trying investing in multiple schemes and losing money each time in spite of all these faxes that always to spot the pyramid scheme time pressure is one red flag be wary of directives to act now or miss a once in a lifetime opportunity promises of large large life altering amounts of income also suspect and finally a legitimate multilevel marketing business shouldn't require members to pay for the opportunity to sell a product or service pyramid schemes can be incredibly destructive to individuals communities an even entire countries trees but you can fight fire with fire by sending video three people unitech encouraging them to do the same <hes> <music>.

Recurring Revenue is the Best Revenue

Recurring Revenue is the Best Revenue

"Of, all the different revenue models, you could have monthly recurring revenue by far is the best. Hey there I'm Eric Olsen and I'm Kevin days. Join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. What's up his? Eric J Olson. Really I was having a conversation with Caccia. And we were talking about how great monthly recurring revenue is as compared to the other models of billing clients such as hourly or project based. In Kevin I, we met with a CPA years ago and we review in our quarterly finances and trying to figure out how much we owed in taxes. And the CPA after he was done crunching numbers and everything as the meeting was wrapping up, he said hey up. House next quarter, looking for you guys. And we looked at each other and Kevin Relax well I mean. I don't know we could double in revenue or We could be out of business. We have no idea what projects are coming to us. At that point, we had already transitioned to project work, so we were no longer doing hourly. It was all project work, but we really had no way of projecting what projects were coming down the pike, or which ones were going to hit. We frankly didn't even know who our prospects were really except for a couple of weeks out, but even trying to guesstimate which ones of those we're going to turn into revenue was. I mean it was. It was a wild guess, totally a wild guess, the only thing that we could really project out was the actual projects that we had already which by definition, a project has an end date, so we knew that over time like out. If we project onto the future, these projects are going to start decreasing over time, and there'll be an end date, so if you. You if we were to project out our revenue based on the project, we already had at some point. It would go down to zero, but if you project out your expenses, will you've got a whole like stable full of people that work for you? They'RE GONNA WANNA keep getting paid probably WANNA. Raise right so your actual expenses are going to go up even though your revenues decreasing. That's project work. With monthly recurring revenue, though you can do the exact same analysis based on the contracts. You already have in place and you can project that out. As far as you want. Now the reality is if you don't get new work. Your revenue will decrease over time because there's a natural decay, no matter what you do, or how well you do it at some point clients. You're going to move on for one reason or another. I don't have definitive data for what it is for a digital, but I've heard it's typically about ten or eleven. percent is your normal client decay over time, and what that means is that you need to replenish that at least as fast or you're. GonNa. Lose revenue over time. But even if you didn't replace it even if he got no new work. That revenue is going to last a lot longer because you're just going. Lose ten percent every single year. Well that gives you a lot more ability to forecast on into the future now especially over time. If you track exactly what your decay rate is, though the amount of clients revenue that you lose per year. Then you can start to build that into a model so if you're tracking wall. Will get this much new revenue every single month, and we normally lose this much every single month you can start building a model and you could project out into the future. What your revenue is going to look like and then based on revenue and things like profit. I and how much you ask, you want to spend on the dizziness. He can project your expenses and you could project your profit. You can actually do some pretty good valid projections whereas with hourly work with project work. You're totally guessing you have no idea what's going to happen a month or two from now. So with recurring revenue, we have the ability to budget. We have the ability to forecast. We have the ability to plan we actually. Amazingly have the ability to see into the future. which is something that we didn't have a four I would've never had the gall to create a podcast called journey to one hundred million dollars unless we got recurring revenue. If, if we were still backing, the project is I would never make that statement that I have a plan to get two hundred million dollars because it's just so wild the the. What I mean by wild is the revenue swings or so wild ups and downs based on project work, recurring revenue gives you stability, and that is the key stability.

Weekly Roundup: Friday, October 25

"Quick note before we get started we are doing a live taping of our show in washington d. c. so if you want to hear what we think about the latest political news or if you've ever wondered what it's like to see a podcast tape live join us at the warner theatre on november eighth information at tickets at NPR presents dot org pope to see there they also didn't find anything that they flagged as raising concerns about how that investigation and what they were looking at was conducted you know the timing of this has raised a lot of i will no longer be waiting but instead celebrating the nationalist victory have a great day enjoy the podcast and thank you very much or the inspector general to issue a report he has been looking for more than a year now into allegations of potential surveillance abuses of trump camp pain during the election looking into several other matters tied to the election as well republicans have put a lot of stock in that investigation they are certainly waiting for that originally looking at so they were looking at the origins of the russia investigation into essentially determine whether US intelligence agencies including the the FBI the CIA did anything wrong abused their powers in the early stages of the russia investigation and looking at ties between the trump campaign and russia come out and then you have the the senate intelligence committee which has interviewed more than two hundred people who were involved in drawing up the intelligence communities assessment of that is dedication i didn't know nationals had such loyal fans well she was right about the last game so let's hope she's right about the next one go sports hi brows to right we are deep into now an impeachment inquiry and very likely and impeachment process that goes from the house over to the so this is not the first investigation to try and examine the origins of the russia investigation the inspector general at the justice department right has looked in senate and so it almost seems like counter programming to a lot of the things they'll be coming out in the coming weeks and months as democrats tried to make the case that the president has done something wrong with regards to do ukrainian government and this is validating for the president now be able to say i am right to be dominica montenero senior political editor and correspondent so late last night we found out that the justice department's review of the origins of the russia probe has now become range took place we don't know what prompted it we don't know what potential criminal wrongdoing investigators are looking into those are all very important questions but the fact that this is now criminal investigation what that means is that the team that is looking into the origins of the russia investigation can empanel a grand jury they can issue subpoenas to compete is the senate intelligence committee has been looking into this and there's never been so far it sounds like any suggestion that there was criminal behavior based on other investigations while we are waiting a criminal investigation ryan what's going on well that's a very good question there are not a lot of details on this we do not know when this learned about it there's a criminal investigation going on yup it gives him fodder you know it's really been an obsession of his this impeachment inquiry he's going to continue to talk about it russian interference in two thousand sixteen on they have talked to basically everyone who is involved in doing that and they came to the conclusion that the intelligence communities assessment was correct they agreed with it and serious this podcast was recorded at one oh four PM on friday october twenty fifth things may change when you listen to this podcast for example l. people to come and testify also to turn over documents so those are important powers and also they could potentially bring criminal charges ryan what were they hey there it's the MPR politics podcasts i'm susan davis i cover congress up to mac i also congress i'm ryan lucas i cover the justice department and and he's been looking for something anything to kind of hanging his hat on and here you go there is no is worth noting that there is no public evidence that there was wrongdoing at any point in the origins of the investigation into the into president trump or russia or any of those matters if there was some wrongdoing the public is not aware of it gathered by US intelligence agencies they've looked at how that evidence was handled they have interviewed the people involved and nobody republican democrat has it's been consistent suspicion stated suspicion of the president that there were players in the government out to get him and that he is wanted to find out who those players were and that it was part of said to me yes i have significant concerns that authorities were abused powers were abused at US intelligence agencies abused their power in any way shape or form through an election cycle and we don't know how long this investigation and will go on but it does stand to reason that this is now going to be a factor in the already embroider conspiracy and i spent a lot of time talking to members of the senate intelligence committee who have looked at all of the evidence that has been highly politicized environment of the twenty twenty campaign the russia question and the impeachment investigation right and for trump he just needs something to be able to say sports the trump campaign there is no time line on investigations but i would note that in politics investigations on capitol hill or otherwise often carry on when we get back we're gonna talk about mark zuckerberg's appearance on capitol hill this week support for this podcast and the following message from aspen snowmass dedicated to meaningful action on climate change for over twenty years aspen snowmass has implemented large scale solutions from generating clean power to wielding it they installed the first solar array the ski industry the first lead certified building and currently operate the only coal mine methane to energy plant in the country learn more about what aspen snowmass is now here's something for the base to rally around to so that they can use it as fuel for twenty twenty and be able to say this is still part of the witch hunt the hoax all guys all right we're back and we're gonna talk about facebook but before we do that we should note that facebook is one of NPR's sponsors and we are one of the news outlets in their news tab and joined now by osma holiday osma hey sue so we're going to talk about the congressional hearing but before we get to that the best time of day to cast a ballot NPR's life kit wants to get you ready for election day new episodes every tuesday and thursday listen subscribe to life kit actually break up big tech companies like facebook and obviously that doesn't sit well with him she has also been pretty critical of the idea that facebook doesn't have fact checking a public spat with elizabeth warren who's been running for president she's one of the leading contenders at this point months back she announced a plan to that came out of the russia probe and that they're fighting back now all right we have to leave it there ryan i know you have to go thanks so much thank you all right we're gonna take a quick break and thing in its ads that it has an online to make this point recently she actually put up a fake facebook ad that said that mark zuckerberg supported donald trump for president to try to prove this point so this issue of fact checking political ads was very much the issue at hand on capitol hill this week right tim that's right here's for example some tape from congress i just wanna focus on facebook CEO mark zuckerberg us my he has made a lot of headlines in the two thousand twenty presidential race already that's right and part of that is because he's been in a pre woman alexandria cossio cortez grilling mark zuckerberg do you see a potential problem here with a complete lack of fact checking political advertisements working our position the right thing to do to prevent your constituents or people in an election from seeing that you had lied so we can doing to combat climate change at giva flake dot com do you know how early you need to be to register to vote i want the number to call if something's going wrong in your polling station or what well congresswoman i think lying is bad and i think if you were to run an ad that had alive that would be bad that's different from it being from from lot of reasons to be upset with facebook and to question mark zuckerberg on a number of issues most of which center around this idea that facebook has gotten to powerful i mean they are grilling mark zuckerberg about whether politicians are permitted to lie ads whether facebook as a platform is well not well i mean he was there supposedly to talk about libra which is this crypto currency that facebook is hoping to launch but you know members of congress have so you won't take down lies or you will take down lies so i think there's just a pretty simple yester- now congresswoman in about spin i'm talking about actual i'll try to launch this crypto currency by the way they're trying to do all sorts of initiatives but they're really finding this big challenge in all the different questions that vulnerable to foreign interference disinformation and whether it's doing enough to stop discrimination in its advertising all of these issues are coming at mark zuckerberg there regulate these tech companies the proposals that congress has put forward won't fundamentally change the calculus of facebook and its role in members of congress and their constituents have about whether facebook is a societal net benefit and good dominica it's so interesting because facebook in politics i mean that is very difficult when you have somebody who's the point person who actually is taking it from all sides doesn't appear to really have the facility to kind of be aw yes democracy i believe that people should be able to see for themselves what politicians that they may or may not vote for won't take our started out as a bit of a golden child the candidates and everybody wanted to play on the platform and now it's a brand that it seems to be getting it on all sides osmose talking about elizabeth warren but i also know conservatives are questioning facebook and algorithms and whether they feel like their bias towards conservatives it doesn't seem like facebook has a lot of friends in politics right now yeah it's funny because facebook housing but no serious proposals no proposals which are likely to pass congress get to the fundamental question of facebook's power and how it could wants to try to regulate an industry so is all the tough talk on capitol hill is it just that is it just tough talk is they're actually going to be any action to try to do things like gable to perry back with them in a way that that makes a lot of sense for his business here's the thing companies don't regulate themselves congress has to decide if it but zuckerberg here the more he's out in public you know the more difficult it's been i mean he even said himself quote i get that i'm not the ideal messenger here credit california congresswoman katie hill is now under an ethics investigation because she is accused in what is admittedly a very rancorous with warning that's why we see her in this public spat with mark zuckerberg in fact there was leaked audio by the verge where mark zuckerberg was talking about senator ward and kind of slamming the idea of really was someplace that conservatives were actually able to kind of gather and mobilized in back in two thousand ten during the tea party for example people i proceeding from her husband of having an extramarital affair with a member of her congressional staff the house ethics committee announced on wednesday that they would be invest not even paying attention to a lot of the groups that were popping up on facebook that were really conservative groups that were able to mobilize and get people to go to a lot of these rallies that they were having could break i want to talk about one more thing that happened on the hill this week and probably something that would have gotten more attention if not for all the other scandals in our lives that were covering l. so you won't you may flag that it's wrong but you won't take down congresswoman it's it depends on the context that it shows up how'd that go over tim indicating this but the reason why it's so interesting to me is the only reason it's being investigated is because just last year the house of representatives changed the response so far from congresswoman hill about these allegations and what does she acknowledged and denied she has said the calls the house to prohibit lawmakers from having sexual relationships with anyone on their congressional staff in response to the metoo movement the legal challenge so it's it's so basically it's so i society right so the proposals largely revolve around things like oh if someone buys an ad we need to know who purchase that add transparency in advertise ah i mean there's a reason why they're in this public spat there's a reason why he would be concerned if she were to become the president of the united states and before we action against her about the aid is completely untrue she has talked openly that she is going through a divorce proceeding i think it's fair to say divorces can get nasty and personal there has been a lot of and it is kind of fascinating that the first lawmaker to trigger this new era of conduct rules is a female freshman lawmaker and sue what's personal lives what's that all about yes he may remember matt gaetz is a skiff gate teased florida republican who led republicans into storming the classified briefing room this week primary and that kind of moved up filing deadlines down the board they're filing deadline is december six that's like six weeks from now isn't she also getting a little bit of a backup to from kind of an odd reformed change control someway and when you look at the democratic candidates running for president really the one who's been kind of the most vocal critic i would say is has been also you know she's an elected member of the democratic party leadership she's definitely someone who has seen as a rising star in the party and it's also the kind of thing that democrats don't really need right now look at these things a little bit differently when it's a female engaging in this kind of behavior with a young staffer versus a male lawmakers so it is a very interesting cultural i mean i saw florida congressman matt gates whose republican said that this ethics investigation was completely ridiculous in that people shouldn't be looking into conduct but if you remember and we covered i think almost all of them on this podcast nine members of congress were forced out of office over their behavior in that metoo movement i mean it really was problem on capitol hill and these rule changes were meant to change the way the place operates clearly the rules are working because when people do this behavior there now subject to ethics investigations but it is creating some kind of uncomfortable conversations about what are the kind of things that we should be judging members of congress on and say in just sort of gender politics we well again be in two thousand twenty one of the top tier races for control of the house complicated by the fact that california expedited all of their filing deadlines because they moved up their presidential give coverage of her in conservative media to which she says she thinks this is part of a political smear campaign it may well be ethics is clearly talk to her and this aid but it's always do with can't let go the part of the show where we talk about the thing from the week that we just can't stop thinking about politics or otherwise all right they're trying to bring forth an impeachment proceeding against the president they're trying to look like the adult responsible party generally speaking when you start to have scandals in your own party it kind of undermined into gimblett a media company that sold for more than two hundred million dollars listen right now and we're back and it's time to end the show like we thank you know i think she does have some allies among lawmakers here this was a rule change that actually made some people uncomfortable that you would kind of govern this kind of i can't let go this week support for this podcast and the following message come from the annie e. casey foundation developing solutions to support strong families and community the you know you can't run a free society if you have to hate everybody you disagree with and we saw earlier in the week even mark does the chairman of the freedom caucus or former chairman of the freedom caucus was crying about his death that is not something i think most people would think is standing that hey we're the good guys what are other democrats saying because i recall she won a pretty competitive seat i mean it is a competitive seat california i mean this is the challenge that they're gonna have her seat eight on the hill and it could be a very interesting potential political problem for democrats if they really wanna hold onto the seat yeah all right let's take another break and when we get back we'll talk about the things we it's like we we care about our country i wanna work with our government to do good things but look at the end of the day someone's gonna try to threaten something got essential you go what would happen for somebody who was the head of the oversight committee one of the committees that was you know really trying to hold the trump administration's feet to the fire and the point that bill clinton was does that still suck for us yeah i mean you know have a major lawsuit against our own government i mean that's not like the physician that you wanna be in with your you know and find a friend this weekend doesn't think exactly like you you don't even have to talk about politics don't give you just talking about maybe maybe don't talk about politics actually is how i built this and on our latest episode the story of how to public radio guys figured they could turn podcasts into profit and how they grew that hunt slots of he tried to treat everybody the way he wanted to be treated the way he thought america to be treated nicole what can't you let go this week what i can't let go of his elijah cummings death and funeral which was taking place today and people remembering his life and there was a point that bill clinton made baggy and try to like you know basically that you could help any at peabody judge didn't bite but what i thought was kind of interesting is people to judge recently dined with animals read that sort of struck me about our current politics that didn't have anything to do with trump really but had more to do with the idea that cummings had friends who were republican this is NPR reporters in general you know we're we don't have to be on TV all the time so different than fashion though because making was we can't cancel each other out that you know what are you gonna do you know if you if you can't talk to republicans and you're a democrat or republican you can't talk at twelve o eight am i'm sending memes about this betrayal this sleep last night i think this just means you need to get some sleep the energy that's like a uniform right take out the thought process of what you wear but especially with men where it's like oh i wore my i wore my shoes through to the souls or i wear cheap because i piece to help ensure a brighter future for america's children more information is available at CF dot org hey it's garros here host of NPR kratz how are you going to have a society said how are you going to have a marriage how are you going to have a business partner you guys are gonna fight you gotta figure out how to talk to each other we'll go out there and find a friend individuals are listeners cannot tell this but as individual in the studio wearing a gray hoodie jeans and running shoes i'm not going to be weighing in on anyone else's sartori the president like elizabeth warren fix the right answers to break up the company's honest she gets elected president that i would bet that we will have a legal challenge and i would bet that we will took tim what can't you like this week okay i'm up last night at eleven fifty eight PM and i'm pretty i'm pretty psyched it's eleven fifty nine pm getting more excited and it hits midnight right which is when we have been promised this new kanye west album oh care about flashy things like men are more can more easily like pride themselves on lack of fashion as a virtue that's good post hawk rationalization of laziness so for weeks though we've been promised and you did not come so i'm i'm i'm up here infuriated at twelve oh four AM of current gospel music modern gospel music like first of all aren't being all of that stuff builds off of gospel music and then contemporary gospel turn michael kors yes designer and another designer and this time apparently he had a totally different verdict on his suit i'm really tired so there's no well no actually in the preparations for doing the pod today it has come up okay you're talking about fashion advice by a fashion designer tom ford fashion advice from tom so did not word had advised him that his suits were kind of a little uh-huh uh-huh what can't you like oh this week so you may recall that some time ago i mentioned that is running for the presidency of the united states was offered ask you've had rappers decades doing gospel nothing new gospel tag shot is booed it's definitely seems like a guy who does the jace bank three suits for fifty at the airport that as a compliment and tough question do you not like it because you don't like khan yea i think i think it is influenced by what i also white house pose kanye west and i love beyond saying thank you don't get you don't get assigned to walk out just prove she gets whatever she is roscoe white house i'm jay west expert on yay west resitvo knit you've had precisely twelve minutes uh-huh special guest star is this like is this republican storming the skiff studio this week is this thing in politics especially among men that there's a source of pride to look shabby right like you don't care about yourself this sucker look at the tim you can do billionaire don't care about none of us are suckers berkeley i just i just music builds off of what's happening out there secular music i mean you could go back to BBN cece winans you go to kirk franklin you have trap fine is like some of the most savage criticism you could give kanye west to who lives in the extreme something is it's fine it's mine that's why own original basis album album and his album is a pale imitation of long of the washington nationals which are currently in the world series against the houston astros and this is a song that sort of became a slow burn in their fandom over one of their outfielders geraldo live in braces it to the point that when they get singles doubles or triples they either do the baby shark hand motion which is like a small finger point or they do the clap motion for mommy shark for rush ukrainian baby shark i should note for our fact checkers second time has been a factor i can't let it go the understated understand it yes what's so scathing yes well i may have to call NPR security to get aw we call as we put off the game it'd feeling good so we decided to keep it as his song and as the season went on the team got better and better and closer to the playoffs everyone has embraced it the players on the team tara so when he joined the team back in may he was kind of in a slump and in july he changed up his walkup song so he changed it to baby shark sharks for a very timely but also i think i think he's very funny about it having come from a sports family being married to a sports fanatic usually sports superstitions or kind of like maybe that you know the earworm of baby shark playing in his head just let them focus on the swing rather than thinking about you know how we might miss it all right that's a wrap whatever she wants thank you sue you gotta follow that well it's going to be a factor follow but mine also involves some music which we should just start with the so in an NPR politics podcast but for this time it's very different because the reason i can't let go is i did not realize how much this song had become the her male and and sort of gross like they get p men go playoff beards like the red sox did or they wear the same socks and this is like macho sports so it's become a now when people go to the whole stadiums we'll get up and sing baby shark as they've been into the world series this week the national symphony orchestra performed baby shark think this is fine like it's not like it's like oh this is horrible but it's like i hear more of the you just turn on a regular gospel station and you hear in somebody's might think it's this is karen rivera and i am recording from phnom penh cambodia where i have just set my alarm to wake up early enough to watch the washington nationals beat the extras in the world you get in your head especially in baseball if you're missing a bomb we're talking about millimetres here you know where someone may be hitting pop up instead of a line drive is he not to his kids his get love the song it was kind of a hokey thing he did when he changed his walkup song things started to turn around he got some hits at the game the nets listen to and you're ready to render a judgment listen to snippets of this album i also say this is someone who listens to gospel music as all like rallying around this like this were of this kid's theme song that has totally rallied mets nation i think there's some sports logic to this too i mean check this in gurdwaras our production assistant is khloe winer thanks to lexi piddle dana farrington brennan carter and elena burnett i'm susan davis i cover congress i'm to mac for today and let's end the week by thanking the team that puts this show together our executive producer is surely henry our editors mahoney matori and eric mcdaniel our producers the really cool BB shark halloween costumes i have been a run in the washington DC area because a lot of people wanna address their kids as baby so cover congress i

Jobs helps you stay focused on the right candidates with targeted screening questions and active recruitment. So you can reach out to people with all the right qualifications even if they're not actively looking for a new role when your business is ready to make that next higher. Find the right person with lincoln jobs. You can pay what you want to get the first fifty dollars off just visit dot com slash rico daily again that's linked in dot com slash recode daily to get fifty dollars off your first job. Post terms and conditions. Apply about california on tuesday passed proposition. Twenty two which was a ballot measure that ensured that at base drivers for services like uber and lift are classified not as employees but as independent contractors uber lift threatened to leave the state had it not passed and it was the most expensive ballot initiative in the history of california two hundred million dollars. Help explain prop twenty two and what does it mean for. The future of labor laws is senior. Recode reporter shrink affari history. Hey tammy lots of labor groups opposed prop twenty two. Tell me why that is well. They thought it was a cop. Out for the gig. Economy companies like uber lifts and door dash to not give employees some basic labor protections. So things like health care. You know minimum wage all the things that you would expect a fulltime employees to kind of have now under this law uber lips. Doordash don't necessarily have to provide that and they won't and these companies all sort of designed prop twenty two. No that's right. I mean they came together created a coalition. Even though uber lift are fierce rivals and decided that it was worth it for them to spend nearly two hundred million dollars. Think it's one hundred eighty on this campaign okay. So we've got some labor groups opposing it. We've got these companies supporting it. Talk me through on a policy level. What the pros and cons are. Why would people want these folks to be classified as independent contractors and why would some want them to be full-fledged employees so the argument for passing prop twenty two and keeping all these gig economy employees as contractors rather than employees is the idea that people aren't really going into being an uber driver for a fulltime career. Most people are doing it. The companies have long argued as kind of a side hustle or a supplement to their income. That's really disputed. And the other ideas that if uber lift jordache were to actually give the kind of comprehensive benefits to all their workers that these companies would essentially go bankrupt and again. That's something that labor has really disputed but uber said you know if we were to give everyone a comprehensive healthcare for free because they're our employees that we wouldn't be able to necessarily let them work as much as they wanted to whenever we would have to put people on schedules just like you know Someone at mcdonalds would have a schedule and that's not what drivers want. That's been their argument. Split benefits are expensive. Essentially benefits are expensive and claim that with benefits come stipulations if we give benefits then. We're going to have to get you terms new drivers that you don't want and for the drivers. They presumably wanna be employees or no. I think that depends on who you talk to. A lot of drivers want to see their lives improve. I would say all drivers wanna see their lives improve but how that happens You see some division. A lot of the traditional labor groups meaning unions or labor rights organizations Worker advocates. they're saying that you know uber lifts in doordash that they're they're fooling workers and there are tricking them into thinking that. There's a false dichotomy between flexibility and being An employee that you can have both and you know. Why can't uber and lyft work something out where they still give people freedom to work whenever but also give them Some some more benefits so the idea is maybe. There's a middle ground between being you know. Just joe the toyota and being full-time at uber dot com email address employee. Yeah and uber. Lift or josh. They've said that that's what prop twenty doing. In their opinion. It does give some floor line benefits so it gives them kind of subsidies basically two people to go and buy private insurance but it's nothing like a full on You know insurance plan that you would get if you worked at uber corporate. But it's the money in your pocket. They're also gives them occupational insurance. If you get injured on the job you'd be covered. And then they give they do give a baseline kind of wage. But they don't pay you for the time when you're waiting for a ride or waiting for the next food item to deliver and that's been really disputed by by labor groups so this passes. What does that mean does that mean. That uber has averted economic catastrophe. I assume labor groups are upset. What does this mean for the future of the economy. I mean look. This is unprecedented in that. You essentially have a coalition of companies kind of rewriting the law and kind of overruling the state legislature here right which passed a law that prop prop twenty two is amendment. Right exactly And there was a lot of work that went behind getting that that law passed that now. These companies essentially just overturned. And you know. I think it's going to come to represent a a law a real loss for for organized labor. Because it's being viewed. 'as by some you know. These companies essentially bought the their way into a successful political campaign. 'cause they way they way outspent the no forces right. Oh way outspent. I mean it's comparable. i mean. The unions have money but not the kind of money that uber and lift endured. Asha and then the other thing is even though these. These labor groups lost there are some new kind of coalition formed among workers now in all the politics around this proposition. So will uber. Drivers continue to kind of push to maybe one day even unionize themselves. We don't know they could still try to do that. Regardless of how the law classifies them and this is about the future of the whole sector right. this isn't just about uber and lift users and drivers in california this is about the future of the gig economy and whether these people should be treated as time employees or whether that is sort of existential threat to this entire gig economy in the first place. That's right it's not just california. This was a a law that could have shaped. I mean a b five was a lot of could have shaped the whole future of the economy and giving all these workers rights and other states could have followed. But now that uber and lift endured asha overturned eighty-five and pass this prop twenty two. You know we may not see that we may see that these companies are going to continue to carve out this new kind of half way Job role which is not quite a fulltime employees. Not quite a totally independent contractor consults. And it's something in between and the question is. Is that a fair shake. Our workers getting a fair shake at the end of this senior.

Expanding Your Network Outside of Your Industry

"Hey there I'm Eric Olson in I'm Kevin days. Join us on our journey to building one hundred million dollars company. Hey, everybody. It's Eric today. I had a meeting with an investment banker. I never expected that I would be saying that it's kind of interesting because I have already a whole slew of professional services folks that I deal with we have a Bank and a banker we've got a secondary Bank where we keep dislike emergency money. We have warriors we have benefits providers. So we've got all these advisers and professional services folks that we deal with and I never really understood what an investment banker did. So when I sat down with with him have known for three or four years now and every couple of months, we reconnect and I'll see him out networking meeting, or we'll have a talk on the conversation on the phone or something like that. But this is the first time that we actually sat down and really said, okay. What is it that you do? And and what is it that that I do he wanted to know more about a radio? Digital and the services that we actually provide. He kind of knew that we were in marketing, but didn't understand the services and whatnot. And I really didn't understand what he did. I thought that he was kind of like a stockbroker or wealth management financial advisor kind of a person will now he's actually an investment banker. And what I found out is that they specialize in working with business owners to grow their business and address any sort Cummings that are in the business and get it to the point where it is just humming along as a money making and growing machine. And when he explained that I thought, well, that's that's great. That's actually what I want. He already knew that we had ambitions to grow to one hundred million dollar company. The reason that he asked to me with me today is because we put out in the world journey to one hundred million dollars. We're doing this podcast name. Now, we have articles on linked in. We have blog post. We've got also. Sorts of stuff we've told the world. This is our goal. One of the reasons that we did that that we told the world would our goal was is because we had a theory that if we put it out in the universe. Good things would come from that. And people would come out of the woodwork to help us get to that point. Now, if I had kept that information to myself if I never told Kevin and Kevin had never latched onto the idea. And if we didn't take it to the next step, which is tell the public then this meaning probably would have happened. Now, I'm not saying this is going to definitely work out between the investment banker and us, but their job and their whole purpose in life is to get companies at about our size of too much. Bigger sizes. Now, what they wanna do is help you sell your business. I'm not interested in that. I wanna grow two hundred million dollars, but in order to grow to one hundred dollars. It's the same principles. None of this. Have happened. If I didn't put the sound in the world, if I didn't say, hey, we want to grow to one hundred million dollars. I would have never reconnected with him at on this particular topic. And we're getting help from a lot of different people. So super interesting to me that just because we put this out in the world. We said what our goals were. Now, all of a sudden people that really could help us make this happen are starting to connect and reconnect with us. It's a good feeling. It's frankly flattering. I don't know if it's going to go anywhere. Maybe I'll just do my assisting visors. But I know that I can't really do this alone. This is a huge goal. And we don't even know how we're going to pull it off at this point organic growth is not enough. We have to have mergers and acquisitions going forward, and I need people that know how to do that.

Voters backed a measure that means those companies don't have to hire their drivers as employees that cements their business models. Npr shannon bond. Has this report and we should note. Uber lift are among npr's financial supporters. It's been hard to escape messages. Promoting the ballot measure known as proposition. Twenty two here in california like this featuring drivers for lifting uber talking about why they support the measure as driving works for my family. Drivers want to stay independent. Contractors from two hundred to particular flexibility and offers wage guarantees healthcare benefits vote. Yes on prop twenty two ads like this blanketed the state they came by taxed on flyers and mailboxes even on delivery bags when you ordered takeout uber lift and the food delivery app door dash spent more than two hundred million dollars in support of proposition. Twenty two making it the most expensive ballot measure campaign in california history and it worked voters overwhelmingly approved the measure for giovani's who drives for uber in san francisco. That's a relief. This is a job that i make over one hundred thousand dollars a year doing and i have complete and total freedom and flexibility to do that releases. View is one. The companies say of drivers share release says flexibility is the most important thing to him we know going in this is a trade off. I'm reading a salary. i'm tracy 401k. I'm trading insurance for the ability to do this. When and where and how i wanna do it is not for everybody. Some people better off being employees. Not me but not all drivers agree. Drivers are being taken advantage of and prop twenty two was really just an attempt to legalize it. Drowned gauge is a lift driver in los angeles. who worked on the campaign opposing the measure. He and other opponents say. The company's emphasis on flexibility is a distraction since nothing in the state labor law requires them to set schedules for drivers who now drivers now more than ever need to organize and improve working conditions. Labor groups fought hard against the ballot. Measure they say. The companies are trying to get special treatment so they can avoid paying hundreds of millions of dollars in benefits like other employers gauge says. The election results are a blow but the work of organizing will continue my predecessor. But one thing that has been inspiring me is the energy in his grassroots level effort to fight uber land and the ballot measure is not a total loss it does mandate the companies provide some new benefits for drivers including a stipend to buy health. Insurance and guarantee of some pay organizers. Say they'll keep pushing for more protections and they're looking beyond california to other states that are facing off with uber and lift over whether drivers are employees shannon vons.

"Great is Brooklyn's I Nico company and they are passionate about building the best footwear in the game at the best price. Greats has a fantastic offer just for you, be sure to stay tuned at the end of the show for that offer and to learn a little bit more about this company that's making waves in the footwear industry. From wondering, I'm David Brown, and this is business wars daily. On this Tuesday, October night. You might over company square because your barista used it on mobile device to swipe your credit card. Last time you bought a lot, but square also has one of the most popular peer to peer payment apps appropriately called cash. It lets friends or family transfer money to each other from their phones, like pay pal or VIN mo- you can also use it pay for goods and services millions of people. Many of whom don't have a traditional back account, use it every month. And that's been great for square which says it's sitting on two hundred million dollars of deposits what to do with all that dough. Well, if square were a Bank, it might let you earn interest on the cash in your account. If it were a brokerage, it would let you buy stock. It is of course neither at least for now, but it might soon be recently squares chief financial officer. Sarah Frier said it may soon offer savings accounts. Or let you invest. The former would put square firmly in competition with your neighborhood Bank and online trading arm, which would likely offer free trades would put it face to face with startup robinhood financial, Robin, hoods trades, cost, nothing. And that no commission model has made it a magnet for millennial investors square already deals not just with the good old greenback but also with bitcoin currency, which could give it a one up over Robin Hood, like anything in the finance industry, though square can't just expand willy nilly. Banks aren't too keen on square and other fintech companies encroaching on territory. They've held forever. Regulators may make it challenging for square to act even more like a Bank than it already does. But if squared doesn't quite fit into the round hole of the banking industry, it might not have to square in robinhood aren't just expanding like mad. They're forcing the old line banking industry to remake itself, and that's. Changing things for all of us. Romm wonder, this is business wars daily.

Episode 101: The DIA Hunker Down System

"Hello and welcome. Are the lease of strange. I'm ashley i'm tiffany and rebecca. Thank you for joining us each week. Is we discuss the history. Mr in theory of all things questionable odd an eerie happy holidays. Everyone who desire we have made it into the twelfth level of do monje hopefully the final level of jumanji. Hopefully hopefully. it'll be fun. It'll be a great time. We'll have a blast. I'm here for it why not. It's coming whether we wanted to or not fine. And i did not make guys for like half an hour while i finished my notes. It's fine we're going to have a great day half it was half an hour. It was like three quarters of an hour. It was not because i it was nine forty two. It's ten twenty six. it's fine anyway. Five minutes is fine. It's fine so cut something special for you guys okay. This is a fan pick. Ooh la so one of our lovely listeners who contributes at the coast level on fan reached out and was like. Hey i need you to cover this conspiracy theory. This is why she took so long to do her notes this time because it was a pig. Yeah no. I didn't just like half asam i was like. Oh i need to actually kind of know what i'm talking about here. Oh snap so. Do you guys wanna hear about the conspiracy theory surrounding the denver international airport. Oh yes okay well. Let me give you a little history about the airport. I okay own away. Just turned into like a northern mom. It's fine so before the denver international airport there was stapleton airport it built in nineteen twenty nine and in nineteen twenty nine. Denver had roughly three hundred thousand people as it went on stapleton began to run out of terminal space. Because you know denver had more than three hundred thousand people. As time went on and a lot more people started using airplanes. In nineteen seventy eight the airline deregulation act occurred and basically before then the government controlled flight pricing. The schedules the paths. They took everything it was all very government controlled and come nineteen seventy eight. It was a free market so larger airports began to buy smaller airports and stapleton being in denver colorado the middle of the united contiguous net united states was prime target. You with your big word can take you with slow. Podcast listen to the kansas spiracy theories. It's a great one. You should check it out. They have a two parter on denver airport so good. But no contiguous united states was not mentioned in there so eat yourself also around this time the rocky mountains were beginning to draw a lot of energy industry to the area which meant that denver was going up. Skyscrapers were popping up and more people were moving in things. Were going well moving on up to in. But because the stapleton was so close to the city there were limits to how high the skyscrapers could go also by this time in the early nineteen eighties. There were about half a million people in denver. The international airports because of the airline deregulation act were starting to use hubs across the united states. So they had the right to like. I want to buy this hub from you where you know. Scotland international flights uses. This is my hub. I don't think that's a real what it's kind of like how at the atlanta airport delta has its own wing. Yeah and like american airlines has its own hub. No well okay. Delta has its own. International airports could reserve hopes and have their own hubs their yes. Airlines can have hubs at different airports correct. Yes not airports. Airports couldn't port just a hub at another airport airlines. Yes you guys coming in with. The word appreciate you giving all this. Denver couldn't handle the volume as they expanded throughout the years so obviously it was built in nineteen twenty nine by the early eighty s. It's grown a bit. They didn't take into account things like functionality and being able to do things efficiently the runways that they built to expand. Were too close together so if there was a storm or anything you couldn't have two runways beside each other shooting off planes at the same time because they have the potential to hit each other so that was not good not good. They decided to build denver nationally report so they began construction in nineteen eighty nine but they had to sell the idea to the community because although they had all these issues with the not functional airport and not being able to build skyscrapers. It was going to cost a lot of money and that comes from they do. Yeah that comes from taxpayers. What so there were several years and millions of dollars spent selling the idea to just munich yelling the idea They did run into a small issue when the drawing submitted for the main concourse of the new airport the designer or the engineer was a friend of. I believe the mayor at the time. I could be wrong about that. But whoever was leading the project had a friend who was like. Oh i do this stuff. Let me take a shot at it. Well in order to build the building he drew they would completely blow their budget and their timeframe so he was bought out his contract for six million dollars at sounds like something engineer would do not give parameters so they were worried about using his plan because they might blow their budget so they buy him out for six million dollars if that's what they're buyout price was imagine how much over their budget they. That's what i'm saying that's insane. Yeah so six million dollars is astronomical right so i just need to become an engineer. Get hired project unmatchable forecast and get bought out of my contract. I am on step to just waiting for that by out. I'm also not a civil engineer. Which is what. I'm pretty sure he was. Yeah those are produce right. Yes so you make fun of bridges but he just got six million dollars. I can tell me that's where you guys disappointed. I'm just waiting for. Why are you not a civil engineer. Rebecca because that would affect us greatly so the main terminal that is the design they chose was designed with these white tents to pay homage to the indigenous people of the land. They look like teepees and have either. Have you flown through denver international. No okay i did. And i remember seeing that and i thought it was under construction. Oops okay so. When i saw pictures of this i was like oh shit i did see that. That's what it's supposed to look lie either. It's not a good designer tiffany's not that woke altered or can't do you wanna revisit. Last week whatever. I was trying to remember what kucher media Figure out what the sabbath exactly so about that culture so this new airport would have terminals for individual airlines as we discussed earlier but this also meant that the individual airlines had input into the design. And oh yeah so as you can imagine that caused a lot of changes. I mean just the difference between delta and american airlines justin. How they board. Oh my god yeah so along with. The changes came delays. No way jose not in construction. Never you know about that but you know what it's fine they wanna make this think you they want. I can say that now. 'cause he's getting out they wanna make this thing. They wanted to stop before you guys yield up anytime. I did that before so they wanted to make this airport grand. They wanted to make it fantastic. Like all right. it's delayed. That's fine we may be going a little over budget. You know what it's fine. We're gonna make it worth your while. We're going to have an automated baggage. Conveyor this thing is going to run on tunnels under the airport and it's going to be completely like computers and robots are going to do it. They could build cards. Why can't they move packages without a problem. Yes ma'am was toy story in denver international airport. No most airports have a conveyor system for like. I know that. But like i remember seeing that as it can and being like whoa so most have the conveyor belts where you go pick up your packages but yeah but like whenever it's loaded onto the plane you see those guys out on the tarmac throwing them into the plane or taking them out battles. Why don't check my luggage. Yeah that is going to be automated with their new airport. They are gonna come off of the airplane onto conveyor. It's going to go to its special place. It's going to be great. That's how airports word. No it's not. You've got the people on the tarmac. Doing their job. Well they still have to have somebody unloading though not this new automated one okay. People are out of the picture for this. Okay i have questions pertaining okay. So miles of tunnels underground to move luggage from one terminal to the other cool should be easy right. Oh no no from a maintenance standpoint. that's a nightmare. bright wale. it costs two hundred million dollars so mostly paid for through denver community tax money. Because typically like you have people pitching delta has a terminal and american airlines had a hub and this international and they pitched in for this stuff this entire national one yet international airline. The they were like. Hey you're using this for everybody and not just for me. So i'm not paying for it. So most of the money came from taxpayer. Money for this automated baggage conveyor as opposed to hang humans. A decent wage to take embiid. They're trying to be playing after working with both humans and machines both are crap fair fair. The denver international airport was originally scheduled to be finished by october. Twenty ninth nineteen ninety-three deadline got a little push to december nineteen ninety-three dead line got pushed to march nineteen ninety. Four deadline got pushed to may of nineteen ninety four and in april of nineteen ninety-four to prepare for the may launch or may opening. They showed off the automated baggage conveyor. Hey guys i know it's delayed. We're going to make it worth your while she. They invited the press. They had a big thing. It was going to be awesome bubble blah instead. Reporter saw luggage watched into the year. There's every time yes. Why does that make me happy. That was the luggage. That made it to the tarmac. Because of sharp turns in high speeds the luggage felt mid conveyor belt under the airport. Eight forgot how luggage word. It's a variable guys. Oh no oh. That's a bad year. Two hundred million dollars. How long did it take to unstop those tunnels. How no i think well. So that was an april of ninety four to prepare for the may opening doors opened february. Twenty eighth nineteen ninety-five not using conveyor belt. automated thing. so my question is every airport has to an extent a conveyor belt automated system. Because when you check your luggage they put it on the conveyor. It goes down. It's sorted somewhere and take into the plane whether that's fully automated or it goes into a bucket or whatever so they built a fully automated thing brit took it from where you checked in all the way down through these tunnels and supposed to spit it out into the airplane gear. So do they have to go back and change that because like you still have to be able to check in your luggage and it has to go somewhere. So i not well-versed in how airports work but my basic understanding and i could be wrong is that it goes off into the conveyor belt to a spot people sort it. It gets on one of those little room. Go-carts goes out to the tarmac reloaded cart. Yes gets loaded onto the airplane right. You get there. It's taken off. Put on a golf cart goes to a conveyor belt that takes baggage-handling. Yes not an automated. I understand that but never mind. I'm reading too far into that. Tiny portion of the story carry on at the previous airport. There were one hundred eleven gates for airplanes k. Few yes they built this new one planning to have one hundred twenty because one of the main things was they were at capacity. They couldn't get as much volume as they wanted. Denver international airport opened with eighty eight active gates. Oh this all that work for nine more gates well. There was other stuff like they wanted to be able to get away so the skyscrapers could go up. They wanted to have more space for tarmac. Their automated yeah luggage system. It's on fifty five square miles of land. How many house isn't that. Do it by miles square. Miles miles can be made into acres Miles two acre conversion. No no just go from square miles haas. She can't do that. Calculation on the seven but google can. I regret asking. It's just under fifty five square miles plant pal. Many fourteen thousand two hundred and forty four point nine ball of course acres ernest quarter mile miniskirt. Six hundred and forty acres per square mile. You said fourteen thousand house. Yes okay. Oh god we hold. Oh this has been fun guys. Thank you for joining us this week. Yeah okay yeah. Fourteen thousand two hundred and forty four point nine cool. Yeah how many hawes mouth hurt. This is the second largest airport in the world. Would the largest. Don't ask me wait. Second-largest a hartsfield-jackson was the largest or one aired the largest international airport. No it's the most has the most volume okay and it is the busiest airport. Yes beijing international airport is the largest in the world. The denver international airport is the largest provider for jobs in colorado. Unless you want to be a baggage handler. And then you're a will. Well know you could be a baggage handler. Because they're automated thing did not work. Someone has to stuff the tunnel. yes true. The budget for this was two point. Nine billion dollars the airport. Yes that's honestly lower. And i thought it would be as much as you were talking about. Delays in the cost for this was four point. Eight billion dollars. Uh sounds more like it. Which i mean is a hot of money. Don't get me wrong but think about how much a plane ticket costs think. How many people fly in and out of airports like that. Every day probably didn't take him too long to make that money back Not really margins a really thin for airlines no. I think it would add up relatively quickly if you think about how many people are going in and out of the airport everyday. I think we don't know enough about the subject to speculate. I will speculate. I totally was trying to rearrange my notes and did not catch any of that. Sorry it's okay. Me and rebecca will just carry on with our fodder and keep the show going. Let know when you're ready to continue percents a patron we love you. And we're sorry knows what to expect so for a project that was almost two billion dollars over budget. Why is it the denver international airport the cream of the cop. Guinea cock finish no project. That was almost two billion dollars over budget. Why isn't the. Dia the cream of the crop with this fancy automatic luggage system or more gates than the previous airport or even roof. The function says an actual roof and not an art piece that has to be fixed after every hard storm. Are you serious. Yeah the tents. Roof is a fiberglass construction own. There have been lots of tears. From heavy snow accumulating and ripping through it or you're in denver. Prepare for the snow though the pipe. Nice dome the. I was listening to one. Hap- like it did ver- we're two thirds of the year is harsh weather lord. Why didn't want to be a civil engineer. So many people believe that the airport is a cover for many things the most common theory that it is a cover for an underground bunker for politicians and socially elite for when the end of the world occurs. How do they plan to get there. At the end of the world occurs. It's an airport. Yes if yellowstone blows up you. You ain't flying. You may not be but you don't have billions of dollars. Air is going to be full of ashes. Sulfur not is flying. I do their underground tunnels and our Philadelphia experiment probably thinks that. Run all over the world and go pray we're supposed to to New york yeah. That's right. yeah wasn't that are speculation. Isn't that episode. What was speculation and what was sort of conspiracy valid. Teary very good question. Let's move on so there's a tv show. That ran on tru tv. Maybe i believe is called conspiracy theory with jesse ventura. Did you know jessie ventura was like a navy. Seal and then turned into wrestler turned mayor of some place. I don't even remember with ice town. Governor governor of someplace it will matter of someplace your governor of the state. You're not cuts governor's no. He was governor of some state. I don't remember which one it was like a michigan minnesota montana or something you just naming names but then he turned into tv. Show no it was like mid contiguous on his yeah naming the m states barring hosted this tv show about conspiracy theories and in two thousand ten. They had an episode called apocalypse. Twenty twelve where they talked. They didn't know about twenty twenty eight. Will they did not. They talked about solar flare activity projected by nasa and how it was going to give these electro-magnetic activity that hits the earth and tax. The electric grid in half to all of the country was going to go down if that happens. What are we going to do. Hide out in airport again. How are you communicating. Do the control tower still operate on radio signals. So you can kind of predict when the stuff is going to be happening. No i meant like once it happens. How do they communicate. Oh once it happens. you're screwed. But how did they get you the bunker. They know they're monitoring in they're like hey sir or ma'am because like we got a vp. Who's a woman so the excuse me person in the white house you need to. gt f. Oh let's go to this bunker. So what will the leaders. The country do something like these. Massive solar flares happen or nuclear warfare peaceful protesters exercising. Their rights are sitting outside of the white house runway. To of course they have underground bunkers across the country for the league and government officials. But how do they get to the The bunkers connected to the government. Figure out the tunnel system. We always wanted his children. Pundits underground like a two and a half hour flight though from the east coast to colorado. But they're not flying. they're taking underground now right now. They're they're flying at this moment in time because this conspiracy theory focuses on the implying so in the case of nuclear warfare chances of an attack happening on the coast or more likely correct. Colorado is in the center of the us also correct. This is where maps even behind you. Good job this is where cheyenne military center is. I'm cheyenne military center is only a hundred and twenty miles from the denver international airport and it's believed to be a doomsday book as well as the dia. Do you remember that underground. Automated luggage conveyor. Yes when that didn't work. Do you remember all that money that put into it to be a disastrous flop cover ups. What if it wasn't ever meant to work. What if it was all a massive facade. What if the construction. That's still ongoing. Is a tunnel that goes from the dia to cheyenne military center Do you have any confirmation of this. Let's assume disaster happens air force one would land at. Dia drop off our next president. Let him travel. Tunnels and these tunnels are wide enough tall enough to fit trucks through them and reach the safety of cheyenne without anyone. Knowing they were there well they would know that they went to the airport. Yeah but in that. Tv show with jesse ventura. They went and did a tour of cheyenne and they were like. Yeah if anything happens like we've got this down system in place and hunker down system. That's not the wording they used. But it's fine. They can support over a thousand people and they were talking about their like down bins where they've got things like betting and clothes and food was food on there with the expiration date of two thousand three hundred seventy seven. That's what i said. It's the actually space but it was like why would you want food till three. Seventy seven disaster man. Yeah but i wouldn't want to live that long by myself. Talk that long but your children who grew up in the bunker don't procreate if you're this is not the one hundred this is one oh one. Never mind okay. All of that is well and good. But here's the deal. That were the case. They just fly to cheyenne so chances of that being the case or amber. but it's the most widely or one of the other multitudes of military bases that probably has a similar. Yeah because feel like there's a few around you know the dc area but this is center of the us. There's nuclear warfare. Get to the center because it's going on on the coast as a lot of assumptions going on but okay. Hi my name is taken. Were in my episode. Nice to see you back now. There's also the theory that it's not just a tunnel that there's actually a hunker down bunker underneath. Dia so there's that too but let's try another approach freemason society of course. Yeah rebecca. can you tell us a little. Wait no hold on. I need to read my next note. And then it asked for from you okay. March one thousand nine hundred four. The mayor buried a time capsule to be opened in twenty ninety four on this time. Capsule was carved a freemason society. Simple enlisted two known members of the freemasons society rebecca. What is freemason. Why are you asking me because you know somebody associated with it not an active member and also why would that. Why would you assume. I would know about it. They're kind of exclusive. It's kind of the whole point of three masons a secret society. So what i got from. The freemason society is that it's super old fraternity that does scavenger hunts for fellow members. But the end result isn't a cookie. It's usually much bigger. Tiffany does t all. Drp the freemasons no cookies fraternity cookies. Alert no cookies. Not worth it. Do not recommend but they're a secret society. That from what i gathered is very science based and it's really cool or i say very science based speaking to some people that i know who are associated with members of this. They do a lot of charity work. That promotes scientific endeavors. That's what all that doesn't make them science-based well. I'm glad you're here for clarification. Purposes makes them supporter of science. There we go which is a lot to ask for in this day and age. What parents hopefully not soon anyway. So also on that tablet tablet. Yeah the the one with the got. Yeah is a reference to the new world airport commission. What is that sounds like something. That's made up. it is made up. It was the name decided upon before carving the tablet. that's how that works to thinking that you write it down the shadow supposed to symbolize the group who got together to dedicate this time capsule but a lot of people believe it's a reference to the new world order the wrestling. No i don't think that's new world order but that's fine so new world order is essentially like the freemasons the aluminum body lizard people etc who remain illuminating the lizard. People you know that trifecta. I haven't heard this walk into a bar. Joe please continue. They walk into a bar. Wipe everything out and start fresh. That's not a joe now. No it's real sad but depending on the source and depending on who you talk to. It's the new world. Order is where you wipeout existence and start fresh when it's lizard people it's wipe out so the lizard. People can come up and have their society on lizard. People nobody stopping. You don't be scared. I could be friends with elizabeth. People do go so in support of this new world order theory. Let's talk about some of the art at the denver international airport there two pieces that when you walk in you were just like super struck by. And you're you're like i don't know what to make of this. One is called in peace and harmony with nature. Sounds lovely well upon first glance. It looks like a beautiful portrait of unity. In life people all ages and backgrounds are coming together around a colorful budding plant but off to the left on the other side of a hallway. The picture shows a different story. So this is like a old that encompasses and there's a hallway break in there crying. Children in front of a forest fire indigenous people on a child in caskets animals and glass cages dead animals. A turtle cotton net win the denver. Airport become ponti. Indiana gatty hall. Oh yeah no. This does not spark joy. This marie kondo that artwork right now. When i saw my theory was it shows dark side of humanity and how we take in the destruction that comes from it versus the way it should be if we live in peace and harmony with nature of it. Maybe not put that in an airport. Maybe that should be an art exhibit. Maybe like this next heart see of dozens of children of all nationalities using a hammer and anvil to bend a pile of swords while standing over a dead nazi Soldier wearing a gas mask the piles of swords waiting to be bent erupted. flags from different nations than nazi. Soldier has two doves sitting on it. There's a rainbow wrapping around the picture that drifts off to a different panel across the hallway. This one has a nazi soldier wearing a gas mask. Holding a sword and bayonet gun pointing his sword at a dove behind him. Our children lying in rebel and women sobbing and holding what i presumed to be dead. Babies notably the fork. Right also on. There is an excerpt from a poem. Written by a child who was a prisoner to nazi concentration. Camp his name. Was i. Prob- i apologize. I'm going to pronounce this wrong honest offenburg. He died on december eighteenth. Nineteen forty three at the age of fourteen in auschwitz. But on the side that has the disturbing images. There's like a piece of paper in the bottom corner and down there. You can read an excerpt of his poem and it was. I once was a little child who longed for other worlds. But i am no more child for. I have known fear. I have learned to hate how tragic thin is youth which lives with enemies with gallows ropes yet. I still believe. I only sleep today. That will wake up a child again and start to laugh and play. Don't like that new again. Why is this in an airport. That's a fantastic question. Actually you know what. Let's let's talk about that. Let's host of this. So the art mentioned could be a reference to the new world order. remember that's at total restart from the world. We live in now and a new world peace and harmony amongst us. You've got in the first one you've got the way things are with the people crying and people laying a caskets in the dead animals and the animals in cages. And then you start fresh with this big mural because that one's like quarter size of the big mural where everybody's happy and gathering around this budding plant and harmonious in the children of the world dream of peace. You've got this small rural where everything's awful. And you've got the war in the hate and the people struggling and then you've got this mural giant mural of people bending the swords and pieces the way to be so the new world order make the connection ish near will the artist has debunked this and said he was basically showing like this is the way the world should be and we're moving away from hate and we're moving away from certain aspects of humanity. That are awful. But this was done by the freemasons they just pay them off to say that like shutdown. These rumors just hear you money. Tell them this is what you're doing. It's fine but why because if you're looking for as a freemason or you know an illuminated or elite lizard person you know to look for these clues it's kind of like a in the davinci code. How they found all those clues that are just like in plain sight but they knew to connect them because they were members of secret societies. Okay remember the nazis in the painting. I do it would just talked about that. Symbolism is over if you go to an aerial view of the airport. The runways are shaped by a swastika. Swastika that just because of the way the wings of the airport work or why some people think it's just because they were trying to optimize landing space and it was just easier to give them it. It's one of those. Where if you squint. You can kind of see it. But it's not really obvious. But if you're freemason and looking for these symbols you know there it is looks to me like it's just the way that the airports laid out it's not i mean you can definitely see it. Oh okay goodbye picture as telling me what an mvp says like if you have to tell me what it says all right well if you don't believe this weird but okay Let's talk about the time capsule some believe it is a biological weapon. Set to kill those who open. It seems dramatic little bit. There is some evidence that would suggest this is the case throughout the terminals there are symbols that breath biological weapon which are so. You've got adhd and then some symbols that will talk about a minute but it could be gold and silver but it can also be a you ag as a strain of hepatitis. That's very deadly that people say that's kind of a clue that that's what's in the time capsule how aluminum nadi a luma naughty go-to for now on what we don't know the answer to something making the connection. What are the other clues that that was bad it. Because there's one that says eight you know whatever. It hits multiple references to these like these symbols are on the ground and a bunch of different terminals. And they're like what are these why is a. g. showing up all the time because it's a set a clue to the biological weapon. That's in the time. Capsule people are dramatic. There are some other symbols that are harder to interpret and some think that they are symbols Coming over from skin walker ranch will in all actuality there navajos symbols in order to pay homage to the indigenous people of the land so they could still become an over from utah See might thing. Is these people and like yeah. I know it's because it's actually involved the elimination of the freemasons. Or whatever you're over the denver airport and you have all these people making these speculations. Why would you not put like a plaque like. They haven't museums stuff and just be like these symbols are here. They represent such and such is their silver and gold mining colorado. Yes serious and that doesn't have anything to do with the fact that the a u n symbols are shown with a mine cart. Not at all. It has to hepatitis. That's in the time. Capsule they hepatitis. That was originally contracted in the minds in is now a deathly virus. Well we also have stuff to help get rid of that so not as effective vaccines yes. I'm googling as tiffany trying to tell us about this. No i appreciate that so there are also these gargoyles there while there were two of them. Now there's three. I'll get to the third in the minute. These gargoyles are coming out of suitcases in watching over baggage. The main thing behind them as when they were first brought out there to help guard the travelers and protect their luggage as it goes through our tunnel system. Hey some say they're mocking the field luggage conveyors as they're coming out of the suitcases. But if you think about it. The stone statues were originally guarding churches gargoyles. That was their purpose. The stone is a reference to the freemasons because they maidstone things or the fact that stone was readily available building material the churches could reference knights. Templar who are often referenced. Whenever you bring up the new world order so do they think that every possible secret society is somehow involved at the denver airport and they just get together and have like an annual christmas party in the tunnels or something. Their owner twine. No everyone just thinks the freemasons are involved with everything. But like you ll manati freemasons whatever. The last one you just said was lizard people. Wizard people knights templar knights templar the skull and crossbones from princeton or yale. They have their major christmas party in the denver airport tunnels. Yeah okay so. The old owner of the airport used to fight these rumors. Maliki guys ridiculous. The current owner kind of plays into it. As like if you guys wanna to believe it. Chirp they had to do some remodeling and they put up signs. That were like remodeling. The lizard people's layer or just little funny things that people were like. Oh this is kind of ridiculous. But they're just playing into the rumors they even included a new cargo who talks and he spouts conspiracy theories about the aluminum body. Wow yeah so they kind of play into it but those are the main theories surrounding the denver international airport. And i found myself as i was doing. This research found myself thinking this his ridiculous ridiculous written. I mean i think it's going to fund now. And i might be into it but you guys wanna know another thing about the denver international airport that i think is super cool. Yes have you guys ever heard of lucifer. Yes i was just about to ask what you hadn't touched base on him. His official name is blue mustang but is a thirty two foot tall nine thousand pound. Blue horse stallion stallion that dach- you yes kerry stands out front. Oh an actual horse that just like wanders ground scott finished talking about skin walkers so in nineteen ninety-three it was commissioned by louis jimenez to show off the spirit of the american west and two thousand and six piece of the metal frame fell on him and severed an artery in his leg killing him at thirty two feet tall and nine thousand pounds. This deadly beauty went on display february eleventh. Two thousand eight. So why other than killing. Its creator is it called lucifer. Well the giant horse standing on his hind legs mid winnie protruding red veins windswept hair and glowing neon red is his glowing eyes pay tribute to. Oh shoot. I meant to look this up so slowing is pay tribute to either somebody that Jimenez knew who invented neon lights or it was prominent in denver. Like that's where the neon lights came from. Okay just you know. Google that in your spare time. One thing that i thought was fun. Is he also whenever you start looking up images lucifer. He also has a very detailed but whole in sack. Oh my god no okay. So it was something that popped up when i was trying to find pictures of him so i had to share it with you guys because i saw it and i knew that really didn't but i really did so all i did was like look up blue sopher and it was like eight pictures down or something like that and i was like. Oh that's a lot of detail. Good job guys so whatever your opinions on the denver international airport it is very prominent conspiracy theory place and i think it's fun to think that there might be a hidden bunker down there but i will never see it because i am not considered the elite.
