The Power of No | Ep. #994
"Get ready for your daily dose of marketing strategies and tactics. From entrepreneurs with the guy and experience to help you find success in any marketing, capacity. You're listening to marketing school with your instructors, Neil, Patel, and Eric SU. Welcome to another episode of marketing school on their zoo. And I'm Neil Patel today. We are going to talk about the power of know, which is the best sales tactic. Now that sounds counterintuitive right? But why in the world does know? Why's no good thing? Well knows a good team because someone comes back, and they say, hey, can I have a discount? Hey, can I get more for the same price? And they keep asking for more and more stuff the moment you say, yes. With one thing they know they can walk all over you and ask you for ten more things, and it's non stop and what you'll find is one. It makes it harder to close at deal because they realize that you'll came into all of their demands. And to when you have your finalize, you're probably not going to like it because you'll find that it won't be as profitable as you want. You may even losing money because you're doing all these things that are out of scope that you may not specialize in and it could just end up eating away or private. Artisan, technically costs you more money. Yeah. No, actually, when you tell people know, even though they want your services, it seems like they have the edge. It actually makes them what you more. It's like dating. So when you say no to someone people are like what? And then they want you more because it confuses them. Right. It's like I'm gonna pay you money to client. But when you say, no, you show that you have standards you show that you have a backbone, and it shows that you have a spine as well. We actually just did this recently someone from our sales team, congratulations to this person. We said, no because this person the other client said they had two million dollar budget. And they didn't show up to two of our phone calls that were scheduled a head of time. And they started asking all these other things and we start to realize man, this is going to be a nightmare. So setting standards for yourself and saying no to people is actually going to protect you in the long-term because especially if you have a services business or even like a product business if you start saying yes to everyone it shows that you are basically just you're almost like a commodity. Right. But if you focus on helping a subset of people, you can charge more gonna make more money, and you're going to make your life more sane because you're not just trying to take on anybody. And in general when you're doing sales the last thing you wanna end up doing is losing a deal. So once you got your deal that you only know the structured you're pitching, someone they're ready to sign you've done a great job. We also find as the more you cave into people the harder. It's going to be for you to close the longest also gonna take now when you're using the concept of telling people, no, you can't always just flat out tell people know, you gotta give them a reason. So when someone will say, hey, Eric, like your ad agency wanna work with you. Can I get a thirty percent discount? Eric won't just say, no, he'll say, we can't do it. And the reason we can't do it as if we did this. We wouldn't be able to give you everything that's in the contract, and what's needed to grow your business. Whatever the reason may be, but an essence. Air gives away everything for half the cost. He's like we would technically lose money, which wouldn't motivate us to work on your campaign. So you wouldn't get the results, but giving them the reason also helps to. Yeah. Mark Cuban said every no brings me closer to a. Yes. So I don't think we should see. No. As a negative thing. The more you get used to note that means the more experience, you get the best sales people in the world, the best companies in world get rejected so often, right? Same thing with basketball or football, any type of sport. Like, you're gonna miss most of the time. But the ones that you hit those are going to be the ones that you wanna work with long-term that's kind of your sweet spot. So I mean, I don't think there's much more to add around this. Is there anything you wanna add? Nope. We're throwing in person that you can find out the details that singer grain dot com slash DT LA, and it's happening Jude twenty nine so we have a set date now in June twenty ninth and all the info on the landing page that is going to be changed to the event bright.

And I'm GonNa keep this intro Nice and short for you on this Tuesday so let's get right to today's post as we start optimizing in your life your risk tolerance high enough to invest follow the slaughter rule by Sam of Financial Mansell Samurai dot com as. I've gotten older. My risk. Tolerance has steadily declined. This is why only got about thirty percent of my net worth allocated to the public public markets when you accumulate enough wealth you no longer want to have as much exposure to assets that are intangible risky and hard to control. There's just too much at stake for example let's say you've got a respectable two hundred thousand dollars. Invested in the market if your portfolio loses thirty percent of its value you can still make up sixty thousand dollar loss through contributions from your various income sources. It may take awhile but based on current median income levels. Sixty thousand is not an insurmountable loss if you lose. Thirty percent on a two million dollar portfolio making up six hundred thousand dollars is a grind. If the two million was derived mostly from middle class wages you earned over the decades. It's you've pretty much screwed yourself out of ever living off a two million dollar portfolio. If you plan to retire then you might be dead long before you ever get back to. Even the history of market declines some may think the more money you have the more risks you can take in my twenty s. I used to think this way To be young and so bold as you get older you stop thinking only about yourself and begin thinking about taking care of your aging parents your spouse your children and other people around you who are less fortunate responsibilities increase with age. They don't decrease during times of volatility. It's always a good idea to reassess your risk tolerance this latest bull market created investment gurus out of many people who never experienced a downturn downturns always come the question is whether you have the risk tolerance to hold on until the recovery a correction in the stock market is usually defined as a ten percent or greater drop in a major index. Like the S&P five hundred but as we know from history bear markets sometimes correct much more than ten percent. The stock market can easily go down fifty percent plus over a five to ten year period. If you have to sell during a bear market you will likely miss out out on huge gains later. On a fifty percent decline in an investment requires a one hundred percent increase just to get back to where you started what investors need is time. I'm in the market to withstand all the punches now that we've reviewed the history of the stock market. It's easy to see how we could correct. Even further than ten percent given sluggish employment problems problems in Europe and China valuations on the upper end of historical ranges rising interest rates a bubble in private equity and slowing corporate profits. The stock market tends tends to be a great harbinger of things to come once. The stock market goes so goes the property market labor market private equity market and everything else follow the slaughter water rule for investing if you are unable to withstand a fifty percent drop in stock prices then do not invest in the stock market those who are unwilling to lose fifty fifty percent of their capital will inevitably panic cell and missile likely rebound for those who didn't have much capital invested during the two thousand eight to two thousand ten crash. It's more than likely you are overconfident. About your risk tolerance the common response to a fifty percent correction is I'll just buy more and stocks are on sale these types of responses sponsored demonstrate either a lack of memory or the lack of experience during times of difficulty if the stock market is crashing by fifty percent. Everything else is also getting crushed. Your job loss. Last risk just increased by ten x your entrepreneurial income is getting slaughtered because clients stop spending money. Non Prime real estate will flood the market sending prices lower when you're world is collapsing around you all. You WanNa do is horde as much cash as possible. If Apple's earnings are down by fifty percent and apple's shares are also down by fifty percent apple is not on sale it's value based on price to earnings multiples is still the same. The only time a stock is on sale when the current valuation overly discounts future. Your profit expectations. Please understand. This basic concept be honest with your risk tolerance quote. Don't confuse brains with a bull. Market Humphry Neil. Be Honest with your risk tolerance by carefully analyzing your net worth makeup to help protect yourself and your dependence just because someone has ninety ninety percent plus of his net worth in the stock market. Doesn't mean you should too with about thirty percent of my net worth in the stock market might worth would take at least a fifteen percent hit in case of a fifty percent correction. Unfortunately if the S. and P. Five hundred is cratering by fifty percent my real estate holdings and business will probably also burnt as well having just about ten percent of my net worth and CDs and cash just doesn't feel like enough anymore. I'm bracing for some lean times ahead and so should you over the next twelve months. My plan is to save as much cash as possible.

Episode 269: You wont believe what your neighbours just did to your home value
"Good Morning Paul Andrea. Go here. Toronto REAL ESTATE UNFILTERED is the series. You're listening to real estate. Podcast SHOW DOT com. Is the media channel. The one stop podcast channel for everything. You'll need Toronto N. G. T. A real estate specific but also I've got listeners around the world and a lot of the topics that I discussed here Are Universal so they're not going to be specific Toronto or GTE. Today's topics included in that discussion. So every week Pretty much every day of every week I get amazing questions from you guys. I have over the twenty years. I've been doing real estate. The one thing that I had going into real estate. I guess I'd call it. My unfair advantage is that I actually came into real estate with one secret weapon that a lot of people didn't have and I think the reason I'm still here now very much so I had a relationship and this is people that I actually knew. I had a relationship book that I brought with me from previous business. People that I communicated with three thousand plus people that I knew that I'd done something with help. People like all sorts of things When I was in the fitness industry and I collected all the names of the people that I was working with people that I personally trained signed up Kept in touch with and I just decided I was going to continue to keep in touch with them. This is my few different businesses way before even understanding what relationship The importance of relationships in business in life. Of course they're the most important thing But how they relate to business which is a kind of the same thing you still you know you still talk to people on a human level and Like I do what this podcast. I don't have a different way. I speak to people when I when I meet them at the POB. It's this it's the same me And that's that's the funniest part about real estate. Is you'll see these Glamor shots That people go into You know the the the these. These glamour shots that some realtors us on their on their giant billboards in their marketing. And it looks nothing like these people. It's it's almost ridiculous to see the pictures and see them in real life and you have no idea It's the same person and they seem to be okay with it. Which just makes me laugh and I. I sat down once really early on for the Glamour. Shot Studio session with the You know with the With the with the with the farm and the background and all that bullshit like basically stuff that you would do as a kid again you would you would know better for pictures But as an adult you should know better and and I that was the last one I did. I JUST. I felt so uncomfortable. Okay turn your head now. Okay put your Chin them and if you remember the phone if you're ever the photo session the photo shoot from the Polian dynamite. Where on-call Rico Is Taken Pictures. I guess he's He's getting some pictures done Himself if you if you see that photo shoot action Every time you see that you should think of every real estate photo you've ever seen. It's just it's hilarious. Napoleon dynamite as a movie is perfect But like the particular sees within. The movie are awesome so today's Today's question. I'm handling with the group that I've got from one of my clients was. Hey Paul just wondering if you can tell me why my neighbors sold for so much under asking this week. Why why did they do that? The biggest problem starts with your neighbors shouldn't be selling without me but number two and this is probably number one in reality if I'm not writing the sole story to your property then there probably isn't one and I'm not saying that to discredit anyone else efforts. What I'm saying is is if there was no plan that started and I'm talking about weeks and sometimes months in advance of making sure that that property is properly valued long before it sold then. There's really no way to plan the took to to work with the end in my with with the ends in front like you can't really have like the the the the the end goal right in your front right. You're bringing your friend view the whole time. If there isn't an end goal as I went on to explain if you want for some reason again this is. This is an area that I know really well again. I should have very likely been at the table. So if those of you who are deciding on a Friday which a lot of you are doing on Friday morning you'll call the realtor. Whoever that may be the long lost relative the guy you went to high school with someone you know with a license that you know that you like and that you trust. Make sure that that list includes me and the reason why you need to make sure you're thinking outside the boxes because of what I just said is that the majority of the listings. I see out there right now. Do not have assault story ending in mind. They don't have an end goal. It's literally just cross your fingers and hope for something to happen. I don't work that way. I don't conduct my business that way and I hope you treat your asset especially now that way and even if you're not selling and this is this is the big thing right now even if you're not thinking about selling you should at least at the very least know what. Your property value is today okay. The reason I'm saying that is because you don't have any control nor do I. This is out of all of our control if anything is to happen in the market. That's out of your control. That affects your property. You should know what's happening specifically with your address. I don't care if you're a bungalow or a two story or a LOFTA condo. You should not be in the dark about. What's your property? Value is right. Now if you were to sell right now with me what you would get and there's no signing anything there's no commitment involved. There's nothing heavy duty involved with what I'm talking about when you signed up from my Toronto. Gte Property Protection Program. What you can look at it as a sort of an aversion of home insurance home insurance product for your property value now obviously when you sign up for home insurance they give you a replacement value. That's not the same as your property value. If you think it's the same have a look and see what your replacement value is. You'll see it's not the same thing you want to know what it is now simply because you don't want to be surprised by the loss and for a lot of people in different markets over the years that I've dealt with a lot of people who were on top of their property values. Were a lot happy. You're selling the knows who were taken by. Surprise Finding out that not just one but three or four of your neighbors have been getting completely hammered. Because again no plan. Make sure that I'm on that list. Make sure I'm talking with you and I'm talking about five minutes of your time. If you cannot tell me that five minutes of your time is not worth. It's for a million dollar asset two million dollar asset that you own the big thing and I'm going to say it out here and I don't think it's going to matter. It's the I'm not revealing anything that's going to possibly be a trade secret but if you want a million dollars for your home you used to. It used to have to used to have to make sure it was worth about one point. Two IT WAS. It was pretty easy to get your one million. I would say now if you want the one million. You're going to have to make sure that the property shows one point five. Okay if you want to two point five three three point five if you understand what I mean by that is that you have to create the value of that higher number and that's where it gets tricky if you've never done that before if you if there's no story to tell if there's no soul story in mind you're not gonna be able to get that value out of that property and that is such an important thing so for your neighbors and you know you guys know these better than me. You always are the ones to introduce me to the really great ones so make sure that neighbor next to you knows again doesn't even matter if they're thinking about selling this idea that we should connect that we should have a relationship starts long before you make a move. And that's the that's the thing with me and my contact base that I started with long ago is that I've kept in touch with them all these years. So it's not like some Weirdo calling you on a Friday or you're calling somebody on a flyer or a billboard are against someone that you know isn't really able to tell the story of your property. They might know it. They might even have helped you buy it but they might not be the right person to do. The sold story creation. Which is what I do is what I spent all my time doing. And as you can tell by this podcast. It's what I do very well. I've reached now. There's almost thirty thousand total. Plays of my podcast. I am the top result on Toronto for Toronto. Real estate on spotify and apple podcasts. Both of them and the most recent time I checked Toronto real most recent time I typed in real estate on spotify under podcasts. I was in the top ten. This was just recently. I don't know if I'm still there usually flowed somewhere between the top twenty. The top ten and twenty to me is incredible based on the fact that spotify just released their numbers. Something like two hundred sixty million monthly users every month like that's an incredible amount of users. Not all not all our podcast listeners. I wish they were all my podcast listeners. If you aren't yet make sure that you're subscribing to this but a lot of people listening audio. It's a big deal. It's come back in a biggest in the biggest way possible and I believe twenty twenty is the decade of the podcast for a lot of reasons and most importantly you just need to make sure that your property story is being told someone has to tell it. And it's not just me I actually even on my M- my most recent listing. I've got my clients helping. Tell the story of the property why they chose what they love about the area stuff that only you guys can possibly say and in your voice which is even better so when you WanNa do that you can do that with me. But the first thing is make sure you know what your value is again regardless of whether you're selling or not there's no commitment as far as this goes is just for me it's just a way to it's a relationship Incubator I guess. I'll call it that because a lot of things that I do in my business aren't directly transactions. So they're basically just relationship starters Things that will lead to later on if they're if they're meant to be so for that reason step number one. Make sure you're connecting with me. You'll see the link in this podcast. If NOCCO writer real estate podcast show Dot Com right on the front page there. You can enter your address and boom. You're in your property is now protected. It's important for you to do this. And secondly if you know someone your neighbors your friends your relatives your anybody in the Toronto or GT area from GTE area from OAKVILLE. Oshawa up to Richmond Hill. The weird thing is I've got family and friends and clients and all of those areas. Not The weird thing. It's a good thing but most importantly you want to make sure that your property is getting the leverage that it deserves on my podcast and that sold story has to be written before the sign ever goes in the law and there's so much stuff that goes into a listing and it just it just boggles my mind when I hear someone saying I just hired the guy on Friday and we're putting the sign in on Monday and I just. I have no idea how that's even possible to come up with the story that will add value to your property in a matter of seventy two hours. It's impossible it's just being done on the fly. You really cannot right now. Be One of those people that does that. Thank you for listening as always and have a great day. Enjoy your weekend be safe. Take CARE OF YOURSELVES. Get OUT FOR SOME EXERCISE. Eat HEALTHY SLEEP. Well and remember in your mind is were a lot of the things that are bothering you exist. They don't exist outside of that. I have to remind myself this daily. I'm telling myself now that any fear that I have is fake because it's created within my system almost to the point where your body as a way of making you believe it and it isn't true. These are all things that are created by us as humans. Our ability to think in an advanced way also helps us do worse. Do bad things like worry. In advanced methods that I get are not do not exist outside our body so remember to take care of that body. Burn off that energy sleep. Well eat well enjoy your life. Be Grateful I certainly am for all of you listening. Thank you guys as well. Thank you guys again and have a great day.

here we are today hundred fifty countries now listen to my voice daily and about one hundred thousand downloads per month so it's it's grown quite a bit from an original just weird idea oh it definitely has even just looking at the way it has evolved to an even you as a host of a podcast you know what i mean like you i can specifically remember you were so nervous you're like i can talk on stage all day but this podcast big is so much different and i have to get into a different flow it was about you learning to be the host of podcast to that's that's been fun to watch yeah you know it's funny guys that if he has ever have been on a podcast or ever spoken in into a microphone staring at a wall is a very odd and weird thing yeah i mean i remember being on skype audio only skype with the very first with the very first guest and i was so nervous like dude you're having a conversation with and they were all our friends your conversation with one of your friends just like you're on the phone for some reason i was super awkward super nervous and and they were bad in it not often were an awesome and then also it was it was a matter of because cusi were so nervous end it was like well now we want to edit out every single and every single and did and that we did yeah that only cal took forever but then a you got better and then be we realize some of them are just on conversational like that's what podcasting is conversations than it's okay the you know work human here doesn't have to be flawless the funny thing is about the whole podcast john ra i think is that people are attracted to because it's a little peek into the host's life right so you don't want me like brian williams on n._b._c. news i think that people just wanted to be real they wanna hear real conversations with friends they wanna hear real experts in you know with their guard down and and just just talking about what they know in dentistry sharing their own personal experiences and could you have ever guessed ashley that it would have turned into this oh it's kind of a juggernaut now not that not the pat ourselves on the back but i mean let's call it what it is it's a frigging big podcast like crazy it definitely has it's incredible from where it's coming like you said i didn't believe in this from the start and i was like all crap at another thing i have to manage and i have i have no idea on equipment i have no marks like order all these things and i'm like i don't even know what they do in you're like i don't know what podcast told me we needed a you and i took like a podcasters for dummies course like you need to sound ball on you need all this somewhere women and here's how you end it and i was like dude i can't even attach an email i can name like email attachment to somebody or you know i can't navigate like an excel spreadsheet you want me to edit this out like this away and i was like okay punt jesse might not be for me until we realize that oh you could outsource this pretty affordably and we have a whole team that does that and it started one episode per week so four episodes per month and i was this is the ironic thing right so super nervous like stuttering and like super produced because we we felt like we had to edit out every uncomfortable pause and it was going out to like eighty people right downloads a hundred and eighty people you knew it wasn't like they were strangers they were people we had asked to listen and give room it was it was so funny in the beginning like trying to explain like what a podcast is it's like okay so like there's there's a couple of different hosting sites and you can go there and you can click on you know you can search for the dental nor then you could click on it they can find the upside that you want then you can clip that you can put your headphones in let's do it on your phone or your computer like okay yeah that sounds easy like i'm gonna do that instead of listening to christina aguilera when i work out so it's just awesome it's awesome that podcasting has evolved it's awesome that our our show has evolved for whatever reason and the super so what do you think who've who've been your favorite guests or what have been defamed yes ashley you've listened to every single what have been your favorites will my favorite i loved i loved the most recent one with i'm not to sound narcissistic but i always love when these as and we get like circle back that's just fun for me not that they're my favorite episodes and even like the ones and just conversations in random podcasts that we hack in on those are always fun for me and i've been -joyed that okay so i was listening this morning as i was working out to be you guys called a minions hijack the podcast it was thirty five minutes of absolute ramblings nine dr brian stimulator dr addison choline and every single person that were judea side and they were talking about recreational drug use and and brides were override stories and i was like you got you really think that this is a procreate for the dental podcast listening to you i don't know maybe also i always imagined right so whenever i record enough to sit on my i always imagine that somebody tuning in for the very first time like checking us out for great things about the jets and then they pump on there and they're like hey the means of hijacked the podcast and amendment hooper was getting stoned as your is that like the first impression that i wanna give anybody on maybe not just to to hijack your recorder and you don't know on it until you're listening through it and you're like what is this like it's like surprise for you it's just a little trait such you guys have done that before we did that in milwaukee and you guys stole the recorder i don't even know what i was doing but you guys stole the recording and there was two hours of just rambling red wine may have been involved this is my i am not the host of the podcast it's my i just make sure that it gets executed it's like like last night to kinda circle back around a little bit last night i had a really long day yesterday and i left phoenix at phoenix international airport at four o'clock got to las vegas at five oh five to over to the u._n._l._v. chapas spoke to the dental students for two and a half hours got back on a plane i was in our our scottsdale home at one o'clock in the morning last night who but you know every time that i go to school now i try to chew a with students and and they just reckon love it it's very very cool to get their take and interview them on the podcast and it it does it did bring up kind of a reminder that this podcast skews kind of young right so total students and young dentists that are really really take savvy that podcasts are natural for them because this is just a generational thing they've always had podcasts for detainment end for you know informational for an informational outlet so so yeah it's it's just fun to be able to take the mic on the road every time i'm on vacation every time like for your wedding we busted up the podcast of the the the the microphones but it's just become like it's ingrained part of our life when you have a five day week podcast you really do just kinda live your life and record it probably you almost you almost have your own little reality show through the pike cats like people kind know where you are and what you do and what to and now now facebook live i now faced with lives it's like now the people can actually this is our faces speaking of which it is you know seven o'clock in the morning and marks like hey let's do a video podcast i'm like oh there's get you're gonna need give me a minute real quick yeah sorry about that very little fans notice my you know how it is i i don't wanna just sit in a car ars while driving around i'd rather multipurpose get some get some stuff done of course that's it has been some of the some of the some of the more popular download episodes and so you know when when you leave episodes in the archive we usually we get about three thousand downloads for day three thousand to forty five hundred downloads for day depending on the day and but when you leave episodes up in the archives people talk right in they're like okay you know you have your regular three thousand to thirty five hundred downloads a man you know people talking like all that was a good one and then you can see when when episode gets traction when it gets traction because for whatever reason will be a spike in one particular speaker and you're like oh i got like an thousand downloads or something so who have been some of the ones that have have put out a monk the five minored actual so you're cutting out just a little bit there mark but as far as you know are are kind of most popular episodes than what people are loving like you said just kind of gain traction one of the podcast title i feel like has something to do with it and that was legally legally pays zero taxes on with with sorry thom wheel right that was one of our most downloaded episodes and the bulletproof dentist as well dr peter bolden the one constant is change that's been one of the the biggest downloaded episodes and you guys have all heard has been on the podcast was actually on the episode yesterday but dr tim mcnamara and his crazy story of how he built his startup practice are some of the the most downloaded in definitely favorite episodes that we have ever done what's really cool is that these episodes that are the the favorites all happened within the last year where we they're not like like the first episode that launched four years ago all these downloads have accumulated that's not what is like these are people found genuine content within these episodes in it's clearly it's clearly shared it in another people listen to and it's pretty awesome yeah so let's go through the list here of course driving some bitterness by members so tom wheelwright i was turned onto time wheelwright because my son bryce les soccer with his aunt with his aunts second my son bryce plays soccer with with a guy named frank frankie and frankie's aunt is tom wheel writes personal assistant on a slaughter that story and and tom wheelwright was telling her that jeez i love working with dentists i wish i could get kind of a foothold into dentistry and irene who is his personal assistant was like i happen to know a gentle influence or that has a podcast so he just randomly asked him on the show she has robert kiyosaki the rich dad poor dad's business partner and c._p._a. and they travel around the world together giving lectures so it's just one of those you know one person removed and of kind of contacts and tom wheelwright came and spoke at summit and he brought the house down and the also recorded a really really popular episode about his book tax free well so yeah that was a good one heater bolden dr peter bolden and i have become very very close friends over the years are pads are very similar although he is a lot fancier than i am and better looking like shia he's the he's the always wearing a really tailored sports coat guy right he definitely always looked sharp by half to admit and peter does not fly commercial was to say that and peter has five very successful practices atlanta dental spa the atlanta area and his his odd cast the bulletproof dental podcast is super fun to listen to because his co host is another good friend of ours craig spo- dak who owns a dental hospital a gigantic dental office that that grosses about ten million dollars a year with all the dental specialties in there he's tony robbins is personal dentists so peter and craig get on and talk about the differences of multi practice model versus this mega practice mine off yeah yeah and it's very very interesting it's very interesting to listen to those guys and every time we get peter on you know every time i see peter anywhere at a conference or speaking on stage together we always find a spot under a stairwell or something we bust out the mike last time we talked together personally we were on the on the forty seven four of of hotel we are whatever hotel in vegas overlooking the the fake eiffel tower oh nice so so yeah peter's are really really great friend and then the other one was t t mak to mcnamara yup jim mcnamara great friend co founder or actually alcohol the founder of the dental success network just brought me along for the ride incredible incredible speaker incredible leader he's got a super hilarious story will hilarious looking back on it for him but when it was happening it was probably quite stressful holy about yeah just like yeah previous partners wife swapping guns at the practice he had to get the heck out of there oklahoma sound in ada oklahoma sound like like a very stressful stop for his career for haven't listened to that episode fill fill i'll get the episode number for you here in a second but holy cow just incredible what he went through it was actually episode episode number two fifty four yeah the amount of stuff that he went through the first year after graduating dental school like real casual welcome to dentistry and of course claim to fame is that he has a startup that is now fourteen months in the making that at ten months they clips the two million dollar mark at ten months into a startup so he's got lots of really really innovative ideas on how to build a startup practice his very very well-spoken person because he was his career prior to dentistry was consulting he consulted for one of the big three consulting agencies and they would send those guys around and work on billion dollar mergers and acquisitions and so he's very very is a very very sophisticated businessperson that happened into dentistry is kinda randomly which buddy it's a great story for her so she is i don't know i wanna keep you too long those facebook live at the same time but boy i just you know reflecting back i knew i knew that i had to have you on this episode because looking back i get a little a little choked up because it's been the reason why demo

Hennessy Hennessy one of these flavors surreal at a point but it it wasn't unbelievable and you know my dad was always a teacher of you know don't be negative people don't understand is we come from very similar backgrounds like how was it in the city for you because I know for me from going from being homeless do time fuck stick we perfect and just because my folks try to be conscious and try to grow up and do better motherfuckers date that we don't I talked about this it wasn't like a sad cry it was like Oh my God I mean it was it felt good but I was ready for something to go wrong you know because got my mind just business yeah that was my join everybody knew my car they knew I was there and you know I was living in it and you know I mean I was just ask a lot a lot of bad for that Donnas in my hand so it was it was it was close it almost didn't let me tell you some I one thing that Dream Life is like a movie night but I got the lead role in all the sees a step up from my dog is clean but Tony when I get some money I'm about an hour week belt Komo man so I appreciate it back to the head we back this is such a big bite you made it like because I I remember what happened to me you know an old man I've never gotten the sense that I've made right people announcing I had two million dollar deal a lot what was that feeling like it relate ever since I remember when I performed at the moment so do every fucking day before I gotta deal tell them about the night that night instead of saying man now you niggers look as stupid as me if you demand you can stop me from doing because win window matter what and I'm living proof down to it yeah and somehow lost it all and family left me or some shit like that and I'll just go back to writing versus in the room if somebody told me it's fine good things happen to Kinda like I'm cool let's do this on I'm watching everybody and got use that in the crowd you got emotional what was the you remember that what was that the crime free crowd that night that night you'd fucking came up then did try that New York and fire outfit outfit which is out of control I was getting dressed in my room and I it was time to go and I walked by the full length mirror and I stopped looking outfit seven of them right at least one by at least one if you can afford seven of them but I think the first irresponsible edit do what was your first like irresponsible big ball in tight purchase like not to house for my parents ages it wasn't even a purchase it was an investment at I hooked up ten celebrity cars for players Sanger's like now you're really really yeah I'd lost a lot of friendships at that point was not great what what what was something that time that I stopped and I think that was probably shit I was right at two thousand eight seven seven eight I remember I was in New York and I was in a car in New York free to promote my car shop and you know I it was just a free thing similar car Dan uh-huh than anything ever happened because of the money would like family of friends and of course they'll name any names but like I don't I don't think that people know the pressure the last straw for me when he when he he came to my shows in Tallahassee he was asking me for money and I was like I don't I I mean how you doing no but like just crazy shit outside the Bugatti data and yeah that's probably exactly how it is it I've gotten the sense of where I was in life at the time it was much better than where I was before and one day I was getting ready for his show and I had a the plan right happy birthday t pay it's like t pain is this crazy is what that is went on day but that was like the first block all your homeboys nothing about the paired part is it's like I raised you so you know you kind of you're my dad

I'm using his fire that'd be my payment we won't do that we won't worry about that because we keep moving wants to do that but if but a day that's my happiness for the week so be what what happened let's not adman and it stayed like that for a minute because you know that's not some unions take back because one of the things that happens in our community that I don't think it's fair is sometimes all right the magazine putting ribs taxes the money would you want a wall that's what we're GonNa do Ri- motherfucking now because this sounds a responsible just because it and it's Asian guys it was

The truth is out there
"Hey history lovers. I'm Mike Rosen with retro pod. A show about the past rediscovered. In one thousand nine forty seven MAC Brazzale a farmer in Roswell New Mexico discovered. Something strange he found metallic rods pieces of plastic and silvery paper scraps that he couldn't identify. He called the sheriff who called the military who Carter the debris off in armored vehicles. If you're a conspiracy theorist, or you've watched a lot of fi, you know, who a lot of people think left all that debris. Aliens. And they think the alien gear was hauled off to be studied by the government where the secretive location known as area fifty one. Of the many mysteries surrounding area. Fifty one. Max discovery is one of the earliest for decades the government denied the place even existed adding fuel to the very elaborate theories about secret government, experiments on aliens and alien technology. And while you'll never convince a believer that area. Fifty one has nothing to do with aliens the real story of the mysterious site. Maybe just as weird and just as dangerous. In nineteen fifty five president Dwight D Eisenhower approved adding a strip of wasteland to the atomic energy. Commission's vast desolate testing grounds in Nevada that spot was designated on the map as area fifty one. It was used at first to test the new high altitude U2. reconnaissance plane and later other top secret aircrafts, including a spy plane that flew faster than the speed of sound and a stealth ground attack jet. The top secret nature of the location fueled the conspiracies around its purpose. When people reported seeing strange lights in the desert around area, fifty one probably from all the experimental planes being tested. The theory emerged that it was alien spacecraft. The thing is area. Fifty one was the location of plenty of government cover ups. They just didn't involve aliens. For example, the debris that MAC Brazzale found at his farm was part of a government operation the air force claimed it was using high altitude balloons to try to detect Soviet nuclear tests. Other officials have speculated that the debris came from crash bomber that broke up over New Mexico possibly with a nuclear device on it. A source close to the investigative team told post reporters in nineteen ninety-five, quote, everything we've seen so far points to an attempt on the part of the air force to lead. Anybody that looks at this down another track? The crowd that believes something wasn't quite right at area. Fifty one was also buoyed by lawsuit filed by workers at the facility, they reported health issues and even deaths related to their jobs. Those two are explained by sketching decidedly non alien activities. The workers claimed materials like anti radar coating and other classified and hazardous substances related to the basis. Experimental aircraft had been burned in open pits on the base men who worked there reported clouds of smoke instead inhaling the smoke resulted in respiratory issues cancers, and even strange rashes that looked like fish scales. But conspiracy theorists can take heart anyway area. Fifty one's totally terrestrial secrets. Don't mean the truth is out there in two thousand seventeen the Pentagon officially confirmed the existence of twenty two million dollar government program to collect an analyze anonymous aerospace threats UFO's the program generated at least one report detailing alleged unexplained UFO sightings in the US and numerous other countries. The report is four hundred and ninety pages long. I'm Mike Rosen walled. Thanks for listening special. Thanks to cleave and junior for reporting the story for the Washington pissed and for more forgotten stories from history. Visit Washington Post dot com slash retro pod.

The Parable of the Knights of Dude
"I just wanted to talk a little bit more about this. And then we've been beating this to death but The Obama speech. I listened to it several times and and it really struck me. As kind of odd the way he talks about Taxes and financial situations within the government. He Act like. It's kind of a dirk. Look into the soul of wet. Boba believed that all of the money in the United States. All the money in the world belongs to him and it's up to him to Dole it out us as he sees fit right when when you look at the way he. He uses the words in his speech. If it's really striking to me how he says it's GONNA cost US trillions and taxes. When when that's not the cakes who's US exactly and I don't know you know then. The people that have the wealth confiscated from them whose children had to pay. All the debt. Back to us is right. It's funny that his ideology is so set so ingrained that That he can use words like that and and it passes and nobody pays attention to that stuff. Well I won't say nobody. Please don't say nobody or no one You're talking about semantic arguments. Though are the nomenclature of the one. Of course President Obama. He is of course the one and the way that he uses the words well. This is very common amongst liberals to use the terminology Us We we the one I hate the most. Someone should write a book with with the big giant we on the cover w e e right you can even use the we gouverneur Morris as script of we the people on the original version of the Constitution and put the GHOSTBUSTER. Strikeout sample over it. I want to hear we anywhere. Who's we way why way who conscripted me and as well how do I get involved in the we? Louisa lawyers a socialist term. Well we a collective is term. And most instances you don't have much of a choice and joining the collective now. Let's just say that. We had a voluntary collective. Let's just call it the knights of the Dude and as you Mike as Knights of the Dude Saturday we had made it our goal to uh a radical consumption of less than four dollars per six pack beer for men that were employed right. This was you like this. 'cause don't you? I like it too. Now let's just say then for pooh-poohed in giggles and in order to accomplish our goal that we had determined that we were going to need. Let's just say two million dollars just to do it in the state of North Carolina. Now if way we're actually trying to judiciously do this without compulsion then way would then be responsible or would then have to go and what have to get people to voluntarily give us. The funds needed to get to the two million dollar mark. Then way could distribute the booty so to speak to those man who were consuming sub-four dollar per six pack beer on weekends now. And that instance there at every step of the chain. There was voluntary action. What he what dude? Von would call human action. You chose and I chose to form the dudes of the roundtable to address this This problem we would not left one other part up. We would only advertise service and ask those that. Wish to participate in it to voluntarily. Show up at some location to receive their subsidy for their less than four dollars per six. Pack Beer So they get their subsidy naked by seven dollars. Six Pack Beer. If you're with me so far at every stage of the exercise there was voluntary ever there was Schuman action. Now that's a we that I can live with the way that I can't live with and that I reject and I don't wish for my children to live under. Is the we where you're not given the choice where the we was a group of guys meeting any city council statehouse congressional chamber and then they decided that the rest of the we's out here needed a fork over? Let's say one half of one percent of everything we earned so that it can do exactly what you and I did and then they decided that. Wait a minute now. We're going to have to hire people to do this. And we're going to have to pay them benefits and then this you could follow the exercise out. But it doesn't work without the compulsion of the government being able to tax.

"The film review website quips dot net i check out over four thousand of my written reviews re there any time quipped stir dot net is where to go w. i s. t. e. r. dot net hi welcome to around the world in eighty s movies my name is vince leo i am the author the at that time a comedy vehicle starring accurate himself as well as his frequent partner in comedies john belushi accurate wanted her to send up a soviet missile in order to test the united states anti-missile satellite defenses very similar to ronald reagan's star wars defense system got to be starting off the review last week i did of film called rambo three that featured afghan freedom fighters in this film also features afghan nations and that's followed by run ins with the KGB and russians during this effort to dry dry out the identities of soviet spies in the area so that the references comic violence lay which this is one of those kinds of PG films even though PG thirteen did exist at the time of its release that probably would be PG thirteen unreal american spies can complete their mission to check out this new style of soviet missile launchers and they end up finding out that the mission is that they're going to use this launched us in a nuclear war now spice like us a scripted by dan ackroyd he wrote this film in the early nineteen eighty s it was originally meant to be that i seized and parachuting into pakistan and from there the bumbling deal ends up in afghanistan where they're mistaken for doctors there on a humanitarian mission for the united clean today because it's language and a little bit of sexual humor in it the runtime of spies like us is an hour and forty one minutes now on the OD or streaming services you can check out my website that's i quit stor dot net today i'm going to be getting into a three part series to that bob hope does make an appearance in spies like us he makes a literal walk on cameo appearance playing a round of golf through the set the chevy chase and austin mill barge play by dan ackroyd they were scouted by the cia after the end of the cheating on their advanced placement exams and they are put on this mission take this a rehashing of the old kind of bob hope bing crosby road films like the road to rio road to whatever that he had enjoyed when he was young as roma's spies like us it has a very doctor strange love esque plot it's about these two of the most inept and low level US intelligence agents that you could find own bernie casey and vanessa angel are also in the film screenplay is written by dan ackroyd along with low ganz and bob lou mandela to PG rated film it does have sexual and fighters we're gonna kick off this trilogy of CIA buddy comedies with a film that came out in one thousand nine hundred eighty five stars chevy chase and dan aykroyd sheeting to work again on the script with fellow canadian comedian dave thomas during this jamaican getaway that would help to retool the script to try to make up into limbo because of the untimely death of john belushi in one thousand nine hundred two from drug overdose in that pretty much put it on the shelf for a little while now accolade would end up spy element and to stick to the basics of what would end up producing laughs together the screenwriters would end up mixing the original scripts inept CIA egan premises i scored an oscar nomination for their script to splash so they were also hot at the time and they were brought into remove the excess in terms of the heavier emphasis on the eighty so a lot of very in the new stuff was put into the script during this phase now as for the director the role would end up getting filled by john landis now john there's more topical nature of american soviet tension especially as it related to the potential for nuclear war that was a big threat in the minds of many people during the early to mid nineteen us they wanted him to do this film after successful outings with ackward in the blues brothers and trading places landis didn't really want part of it but his lawyer for baluchis absence for brief period it was not that dave thomas would be the one to actually use the screenplay for his own vehicle to star in with his co. SETV on the second unit filming of his segment of twilight zone the movie that resulted in the death of actor vic morrow and two vietnamese child actors it is called spies like us it's a film directed by john landis donna dixon steve forrest bruce davison william prince tom hatton charles mckee she accurate pairing was proving to be as appealing as the hope crosby pairing after the success of nineteen eighties the blues brothers however the script would end up going in dainik raid had the hotter hand at the time in terms of box office appeal especially after co writing and co starring in the phenomenally popular nineteen eighty-four film ghostbuster partner rick moranis but he wasn't really tested enough in films to make such a highly ambitious and very expensive film bankable to produce their chances of pushing all of the blame for the deaths of more oh and the other child actors on landis alone he reluctantly signed on without even reading the script but once he up advising him to give it a go because for no other reason than it actually showed that warner brothers felt that he was actually trustworthy to be given the reins of a project and that ruin accurate knew he needed an established counterweight in comedy to make his film complete as a buddy comedy so one day after running into chevy chase at a party and reminiscent there was a prolonged lawsuit that would follow that put landis at odds with the studio warner brothers that made him initially balked at working for them again when they gave him the script to spies away and he would make this supremely silly road movie completely different from the kind of movie that he had just made warner brothers as far as the casting goes was pushing to put accurate grueling for the cast and crew for most of that in contrast the sahara desert really cooked the cast and crew on a daily basis as well temperatures other than chase making a short appearance in the music video for ghostbusters so the ended up working together but it wasn't all fun games in fact chevy chase seemed to be a little bit miserable to morocco for the segments that involve the trip to pakistan and afghanistan and that was followed by additional shooting california in lancaster palmdale as well as some shots in chaste to become a little bit jealous grouchy overbearing it caused some friction with director john landis who didn't even want chevy chase to be in the film getting in ghostbusters for the same reason but she ended up getting convinced to audition with everyone else if she managed to earn it on her own so she gave it a go and she got the part speaking of ghostbusters dan eckerd was able to bring over for spies like us the same composer in elmer bernstein to score with a lot of his trademark in the end up going on a mission as expendable decoys for the real agents that are out and about their names are emmett fitz hume play by give it a look he did feel that it was a good opportunity to get away from the heaviness of this lawsuit and what he had been through with the deaths by filming overseas so it took them all during parts of it they had their fun working together for the most part but democrats films were actually far better known to those that they were working with while they were shooting in london cost chevy that initially gave landis mixed feelings because it was quite a coup to get such a major talent to contribute a song but by the time they signed him on the movie was pretty much finished rainer from the group split ends and also the backing vocals the track would end up shooting to number seven on the billboard hot one hundred chart in the united states and the music video that ran near a hundred and thirty degrees fahrenheit this was a really tough shoot especially for making such a light comedy donna dixon she was initially reluctant ended up featuring mccartney along with the stars of spies like us chevy chase and dan aykroyd but it's not a song that was embraced by mccartney in his discography he mostly has distanced himself from playing the song in his concerts despite it being his final top ten hit in the united states cameo appearances galore are also about old times he ended up coaxing his co star from saturday night live to do this as a buddy film with him it was their first collaboration since set it in that light here's so they decided to hone the script a little bit more by handing it to a screenwriting team with a good deal of recent success in comedies lowell ganz and bob lou mandel they adjust landis obviously if you follow films in the nineteen eighties he had a great track record during this period his reputation ended up getting blemished somewhat due to a tragic accident during light and playful compositions now in addition to the elmer bernstein score there was also a hit song the warner brothers ended up approaching paul mccartney to do the title song for spies like us a compromise that the song would end up playing during the closing credits instead of the opening credits so long as he was able to continue to show images on the screen when goes spies like us can be a bit of a mixed bag it's enjoyment certainly going to depend on the viewer's expectations and your state of mind at the time of viewing it although it is how far that the actors are willing to go to get a laugh i saw this when i was fifteen years old in the theater and i thought it was actually very funny at the time and that's going to be used to convince the soviet union that the united states has the edge in technology and they should just give up thinking that they are going to be effective against it hit me at the right time at the right stage in my life since then i haven't been as enamored of it as i was back then but i still enjoy watching it i think if you it's not appear on that album but it does appear as a bonus track on cds that were issued later he performed all the instruments on the track except for the synthesizer which was done by washington DC the norway scenes where well below zero temperatures it was very very cold the snow was as deep as eight feet in parts of the shoot in that meeting to take the role in the film she was alive still is the wife of dan ackroyd she didn't want special treatment for getting the part she had similarly turned down the role that sigourney weaver would end up the song started playing so that it would keep people in the seats to be able to listen to the song paul mccartney worked on this during the period he was making his album called press to play it deflated so they ended up tacking on an additional ending after this make love not war diversion they were able to add an extra scene of epilogue where nuclear wars time with blues man called BB king into the night and that was a collection of music videos that john landis directed meant to promote BB king's next album of the same name in addition to that read with another saturday night live player named joe piscopo he seemed to be red hot at the time but it didn't quite come together without piscopo and without john belushi this is ended up liking it even critics were not exactly enamored of the film despite a rather large budget for comedy it was reportedly twenty two million dollars a brand new one that looks at films of the nineteen eighty s that our buddy comedies that have a CIA titan of some sort today ended up getting played out on board games instead of in real world scenarios in that snap the tone back to its tongue in cheek vibe that was achieved in its best moments in on it what the film is known for if you follow john landis films this is very much indicative of the kind of comedies he makes BB king gets apart john landis happened to be working on a documentary short at the the kids film in any way i think that younger viewers and those who just enjoy silly shenanigans are going to find the slapstick humor in slapdash zany this to be amusing for mates so that such a downbeat ending to an otherwise light and goofy film could be avoided nevertheless the threat of nuclear annihilation whether it was carried out or not on the road i think that you kinda give spies like us a pass if you're a big fan of either of the two lead stars certainly wants to film was completed test audiences mostly complained not the intended ending that would result in world war three erupting duty the botched mission that essentially caused the end of the world you presume revisions what ended up having to be just a million dollars behind the goonies which was also considered a pretty big hit or the time despite its comedic star appeal spies like us it really has not gone down to be considered a classic nineteen eighties comedy like so many others of its era although it is generally liked by audiences as a diversion more so than as a comedy that ghostbusters but nevertheless i think that there are enough laughs and it's definitely diverting enough in its plot in many locales and many cameos name and a few others are in the film as well so if you know your directors and you'll get a kick out of seeing them on the screen now as far as the finished product legit spies like us when ended up being actually pretty big hit in one thousand nine hundred five it spent two entire months in the top ten films in the united states erect up comedies especially throwbacks to the bob hope and bing crosby era of comedies you'll get some mileage out of that as well beyond that it's not one i would consider going well out of original cast of saturday night live especially you probably will get a kick out of it and some of the humor in regards to women as objects maybe that hasn't aged as well certainly it's still a bit of a heavy way to throw that in at the end of the film and that kind of undercuts the tone of this childish absurdity that would threaten to leave audiences walking out a bit you can look at it through that prism and see a little bit of the problems there but it is breezy it does deliver a handful of funny moments i think that's enough to recommend anyone expecting in the mid nineteen eighty s and given that it's meant to be a throwback though to the hope and crosby era films and the fact that both chasing accurate would do even more inane comedies that those like me who are teens in the nineteen eighties had so the appeal may be limited for gardening new fans but if you're a fan of films of the nineteen eighties and you love the with an objective i critical eye the three stooges level style of mugging the lowbrow humor it's a bit antiquated even for the time it was released with reviews as they come out and until next time thanks everyone for joining me on this trip around the world in eighty s movies all of that stuff to be able to be considered a worthwhile viewing for people who just like escapist comedy entertainment so for that i'm going to give it it's a marginal score but i'm going to those places as well as far as what i'm going to be reviewing on the next episode continuing on with the theme of CIA buddy comedies this one i think at four aykroyd really vouch for him now the bulk of the production will be done at twickenham's studios in london and then they proceed to norway for the snowy winter scenes and then along with john ritter it's nineteen eighty-seven action comedy called real men and that will be on the very next episode checkout real men if you want to keep naqoura to continue his comedic momentum going in as a screenwriter you may be disappointed that the funniest moments in spies like us would be comparable to the least funny moments during that time a hefty sixty million dollars off of that twenty two million dollar budget and that place did at the end of the year as the tenth highest grossing film of nineteen eighty five i at the time he didn't want to re edit the opening of the film to accommodate this new song so a lot of back and forth was in play john landis and warner brothers ended up coming to ours is what i will give spies like us thank you everyone for listening i hope that you enjoyed this review if you have your own thoughts on spies like us you want to impart to me you can find my contact information of your way to see but if it happens to be on somewhere you see it's streaming just want you lasts without a lot of high overhead i think that spies like us will fit the bill for that so three they might fully embrace but it will probably score a stroke better for juvenile viewers many kids today may not have the kind of love for the originals headed in life stars bob hope yet frank oz terry gilliam ray harry house in joel coen sam remy martin brest custody bravo's michael apted larry cohen edwin newman bob swing my website that's

Jim Allen on Simplicity on the Other Side of Complexity
"You are you ready to become awesome. Our hello everyone this is you meet your host and welcome to the no limit selling podcast where industry leaders shared their tips strategies and advice on how to make you better stronger faster. Get ready for another episode. Hello everyone today. I'm excited to have jim allen here with me. He's with the jim allen group the founder. Jim welcome to the program. Hi autism are among. Jim one of the things i really wanted to kind of take a look at is you started in real estate and then the financial crisis you know jimmy. Carter was around. I remember. one of our neighbors didn't take the one year loan to like everyone else. He decided this going to get worse and he took like thirty year at twenty one percent and just lost his home out of it. What i wanna take you back to as as this recession hit you. What were your thoughts your new in the industry and then we'll talk about how you got out of it so what was happening. When all of a sudden everything crashed on when the first one happened Interest rates because of oil had just gotten completely out of hand and as interest rates continued. Escalate Qualifying figure out your front line programs so for someone like me especially brand new to the business at the time. No clue what. I was doing I didn't know that. I didn't that mortgage brokers worth wednesday. It handled mortgages. I took it upon myself to really become a lending expert. When i would take a client of mine to a lender i never would have thought of letting them go by themselves because they made comeback and not wanna purchase anymore because once they could potentially scare them to death So you know the the simple solution in it how how followed the platform for my entire career. Once you find out what a problem is or what's causing it. Then you become an expert in that individual portion of it and it just assist you every time it happens. I mean owes much as start now in. The middle of recession was a bad thing The truce is it armed me with the ability to fight off the next within the next decade in the next one and the next decade because every ten years we run into some kind of stumbling block right Is just a matter of which one is which. What's kind of interesting a couple of things that i picked up from what you were talking about. one of the things that people that are successful do is when a problem comes up they lean into it like you said you wanted to learn everything about it whereas most people either ignore it or run away from it and a mark of a leader is hey less. Lean into it for grout. What's going on so a kudos for that and to it's really interesting before we started recording. You were talking about you know. It's those recessions and the problem areas. That rulli slingshot your business forward when you come out of it if you've got the right mindset a try amin an example for me. I had a pretty steady volume of in back in two thousand seven before the. Oh eight banking crisis yet. About one hundred twenty million a year would. I was closing up pretty decent average. Just kinda very good while win over eight games. Obviously you know everybody else had to kind of figure out what direction to go in and kind of went in low cocoons or they pulled their heads way back because they didn't wanna get exposed or get hurt. While i saw that as a growth opportunity and i went around to all the local banks who at the time did more loan money out to builders or do anything else. And i had been saving my money for some tom. And so i started bargaining with banks on behalf of my clients. I said listen guys If i put x. Amount of my own personal money here. What we alone out while it i. It was like almost dollar for dollar the first year. Is they really didn't take on new construction loans. They were like terrified. And then it got to be two to one and five to one and then you know it's not quite back up to the ten to one that it was pre recession in in a way. But it's pretty close now so this is pretty quite literally putting your money where your mouth was. That's right and they average real estate broker. And i. I would quote this person but i don't want them offended. A sitting in a bank office in away and the bank was trying to decide how to save themselves. How do we keep from going out of business. And they called myself and several other leaders in our community and we're sitting there and one of the brokers sitting there said. Well jim i'm a broker. I'm make six percent. If they lose two hundred thousand and i make six percent if they make two hundred thousand so i'm a broker and i said well that won't help right now. 'cause you made money on the backs of all these guys you're talking about losing money. What happens if they all go out of business. He said well. Guess what there'll be a new group of pickup trucks right behind them their sons or whoever in acid not this time because this could be generational you know if if a gentleman who's done it for fifty years goes out of business. Do you think his child's gonna become a builder. You know in a lot of orders in our marketplace children of people who have been builders previously in the president of that bank kind of agreed with me they were looking for. What are all your good ideas. And at the time i suggest starting to do a buyback program where you know we could still sell our new home. It full price. But we bought the other person's house to leverage into so at least we got our money back out of the new one and then over time we try to sell the resale or we keep as ronal to get building. But now eric different tools that you use and you gotta have all your tool chastity get successful but out of that launch Last year we closed right at five hundred million dollars whereas a business Win in oh eight. We were lucky to do a hundred million and we actually In in nine drop down to eighty eight million production. We launched down five hundred. Will this year. So far we've got pending over seven hundred million this year and You know our goal right now is we'd like to start doing a billion dollars in annual sales so We started I've been thinking about this goal for a while. But october was really the first time i implemented it to my team and started showing them where i thought we need to go in order for that to occur in you know last october. Same time period. We did like one hundred. Twenty seven sales and fifty seven million in sales. Well fifty seven million in sales The ends up getting you. The numbers real quick cash have been hundred ish which is where we are right now said i implemented beginning of september so we got macaroni. Taber numbers we just said an all time record for our entertain but sides assault one hundred and seventy five homes in october At ninety one. Megan is what we did in a grossly volume in in in october. So take ninety one million and malt flat you get to my billion just a little over a billion so if we can launch forward in october certainly is not normally You think of is being your best sales month right but it's good. That is the one so if we start from there in traditionally. October is actually Normally my second. Worst month of the year september being my worst typically and then october on the back end of it and then filters the rasp. If we've got our second worst numbers there with our goal changing than in setting it up differently with my team than now. I feel like we were looking at a three year projection to try to get there safely shoot. We might get to obey next year. Jim one of the things that's interesting is A lot of people just do what they both is done. It sounds like you see the world like you know. How do we need to solve this problem. How can we show up different. How can we do offer something different. What do you think that comes from. That need to solve problems. I my background's in engineering. I got my degree in engineering When i was in college and obviously wouldn't engineer is is a problem solver. Now now when you're trying to sell them a house sometimes you say oh lord the hard to speak to. But on the other end i mean. They're so used to handling people's problems in you. Come to whether the water doesn't flow properly somewhere trying to figure out how to support a house. It's just a lot of different elements that engineers deal with. And so you know i. While i didn't like the physical aspects of being an engineer the problem solving and everything in in a in a solution where i could figure the platform out of it it works in real estate is well didn't know would i. But i didn't realize how few people really have plans though it it. It helps you plan for the future. And that i think the only way to do anything is i plan and then steps in measures how to get to your plan and then holding yourself accountable to your steps and measures i mean you know if you formulate a plan but then you do nothing to put it into action or you really. Don't hold yourself accountable. Then you're never going to reach your goals while once we set goals for ourselves and we put a plan in action. I don't allow us not to do our goals you. That's my personality tight that i'm not going to accept failure from myself. And i don't impose that same on others You know what. I've learned to do as a team leader every time you can't make everybody in du path to accept the best them that convey. But so let's talk about that. Jim for second. So this probably people on your team maybe currently or agents in the past where you saw more promising them then they saw themselves. Can you tell us a story about one of those situations where you help. Bring out the best out of one of your team members. I mean almost always You know like there's a there's a stumbling block for each person and what you have to do is figure out you know what's the what's the block. They put in front of themselves. But give me an example of a couple of them Actually my number one agent on my team right now. had been a fairly successful broker on their own previously You know had four people standards had had gotten out there was was doing fairly well But was capped in and kept doing the same amount of business every single year light. That was the rookie of the year in the office. They were in. And you know that viacom they were doing as a rookie. Don't put him in play mazda months when they were competing with the other brokers in their office. And that was the problem all right so so often. Brokers are competing with other people that may not have their skill set or anything else rather than making themselves competition so in mind we were it with others compete with spell and sometimes. That's the hardest thing to do because a lot of times our beliefs around self-worth dictate. How well we do unless we change those beliefs. We get stuck in that same threshold. Is some people. Call it the comfort zone. We also have a financial comfort zone and we get stuck there and once you change those beliefs around money and self worth it just changes the entire world so so the first thing i do when i'm bored people to my team. I first day in the office. I give him three things. I give him here. First nice i given the mirror and turn it. I say this in. Because you're beautiful. And i don't want you looking at your reflects too much only year. Remember if you're talking to someone on the phone or do anything else. The problems are august star. Right there writing your hand and yet burn the reflection back because the moment you start making excuses the moment you start accepting something last than what. The other person desires need All of us are filled with excuses. Can either say wishing mirror on the wall. Give me what oil unless you got a magic formula. That's not gonna happen. So the solution is right there in it you have to resolve the own your own issue get out of the way of the transaction and allow it happen but if you're talking to someone on the phone and you get aggravated or something they're saying to you doesn't flow properly for you pull that mirror out who's up at your facial expression is gonna be reflecting what the person on the other end of the call is hearing right now and feeling the affection and gonna feel it right through the phone lines you kinda interesting. Jim is that we don't use language accidentally. And one of the things we a phrase we have is rationalizing and if you break that down is rationalize the lies we tell ourselves are so believable that we believe our own. Es we don't realize that we're creating it. That's right so i wanted to things i inherently. Tell people about myself. And what i would like to get to this point is. I don't have filters like my mom. Used to warn people coming in. Oh shit be careful have filters built her t as he is liable to tell you what he really thinks. Well the world doesn't necessarily always oumar like hearing the tree. I mean they'd prefer by to tell them they're covered up. Live will never smart enough to remember the lies. So i tend to just get rid of that completely in the white but i also so the next thing. I'll tell you this won't be popular with all all your guests. But next thing i do is i give him a daily read bible and i suggest to them listen. I don't care if you read it cover to cover you. Don't read it at all but the four matic comes into got an old testament new testament proverb in assam everyday. If you don't read anything a proper you'll start finding that the proper be re will be the solution to the problems you ran into today or maybe you can put your problems back in that little problem solver and start working from there. Because i don't know if you've read much properties but it's really common sense solutions to the redmond. But i've heard them right so anyway that's bats the second thing i handle in third is and this teaches them in all formats game up here scissors. Okay why would you give me scissors well. Every time there's a string hanging off of one of my signs or balloons still hanging or we've left trash somewhere and i'm trying to get him to understand this everywhere. If a bird poops on one of my for sale signs is sitting out from the property you may still be able to see the number but the person looking at a number won't see the same side. Yes selection all the way through on everything. Little things are the most important things i can't sell. Something is big as a two million dollar house because it's too large to sell what i can sell them. Instead as a sink faucet. I can sell a countertop can sell a door poll i can sell the thing at our sellable. No one on earth wouldn't be able to afford to pay for capital so i can reduce my sales equation to the very smallest detail of something rather than trying to sell the whole. I believe in selling the details of the whole thing. Is you go through. And if you sell something that someone that way it. Many wins and a bunch mini wins. Add up to will. There's all our wins. I don't see any losses on this other side. Maybe that's a good thing for you to follow through to jim. One of my favorite quotes. And i've got a million but this one is from einstein. It goes something like this you know. I don't like simplicity but simplicity on the other side of complexity is a beautiful thing and what you've described his those three things the mirror to really let the authentic you show up and reveal your own. Bs when you need to The the bible to give you knowledge every day that you can use because you need to get better as yo and the third thing with the scissors which is a great metaphor for looking. After the small things is is that right is the some interesting the other side of complexity that allows realtors to shine. San what's wrong though. Like if you're trying to coach someone else or trying to help someone else gain footing. If today i mean whom are few join my team. And you want to duplicate my footprint at the you'd get swallowed up in it before we got started and unfortunately the methodology that all big brokers us and also big accompanies us is they. They put this big plaque up on the on the wall for age of the mont or annual sales of the month or guest annual sales of the year in now everybody no matter where their entry point is is a minute. This huge target over time. They've realized that water down so now they got. Oh well this is for teams under two and this is for teams at three. And this is if you're an individual agent that's just to make everybody feel of cagey about because we've all gotten into a society That rather than there being one winner in one loser. Everybody gets a trophy for participation. Now our whole societies become while it's because the you know we were not put into categories already. We weren't You know we were playing baseball instead of everybody. Being in the major leagues with the lowest level minor league team trying to compete with world championship team from the previous year. And the only way either one. I'm supposed to be successful. As if they reach this one goal of winning the world series and we know that lower team has no possibility a beating this top one but we tell him to go ahead and try. Will i mean lynn. Yes you learn out of your defeats. I do not doubt that but get you learn just as much out of your success as you do your defeats you. Everybody i know only preaches. Oh you learn all the bat you do know quest but you also learn how to handle things better out of successes too because it's just as important to be a good winner is it is to be a good loser. All of us learned our whole lives had to be good losers. It's just as important when you sit on top of its of a mountain to learn how to be there humbly because guess what all the people who helped you gain your footing that helped you build your business over the course of time. Same people that you see go in if your head get so large. You can't get through a door. You will see them as you shrink in. Go back down to the on the other way as well right. It'll be the same people. But we all i think the the brokerage community is starting to learn that we all need each other and that we're not really out there eating each other alive because While there are some people you may compete heads up for a one little particular piece of business of the course of your time if you if you take time to recognize it you only run into that person competing for other property. You know maybe five or six times in a career where it's it's heads up. You know it's near you. You know unless you're the only to brokers in a little small town that's not gonna happen but if you're in a yup always not an enormous town but you know we're about two million able of across a bunch of little mini towns around year So you know. In comparison to other metropolitan areas in the country is not a big population. But we've got about nine thousand realtors in my little area. We compete with so for me to go heads up with just one isn't gonna happen every day but not every day and we all have different. Things were good One of the things i learned to do. And it's what i learned to do in the last recession in it in it went along with putting my money in some of these banks learned to get off my knees begging for listings and to create my own listings. So i do an awful lot of urban infill. I do an awful lot of lot development myself where am taking actually just begun to purchaser. So you know. I get home in certain price ranges rather than waiting for the market sell it. I go by split Repackage it and sell it to someone else. I mean what i find. In order. at some point. You will outgrow what the best of sales approaches in the little marketplaces you work in. You'll outgrow your ability to continue to grow your business unless you find new ways to get business and or to learn to start producing it yourself. So i'm in a market place. Where my team like say. we'll do. Seven hundred million this year. Guess what second-place team and my market or do this year. Two hundred hundred eighteen so we're seven times bigger than second place. While if i'm competing with second place was remar- you're gonna go down to two hundred. Like i suggested i'm get late. I'm we'll get lazy. I'm all. I'm gonna be complacency. Yeah many of their signs but if you if you today wherever you sit in your life whatever it is you're working on I guarantee you whatever you did. Yesterday did not kill you if you were the hardest. Thank yesterday you've ever worked in your life but you didn't die at guarantee if you come back today you got one percent more me. You may not be able to jump on in become a different Become warren buffett tomorrow. But i can become one percent. Jim allen tomorrow than i was yesterday and you know that hundred percent deaden cap so if you keep becoming one percent bedroom every year like next thing you know and i just told you i used to be one of those hundred maters. That's what our that's still in away. When i was at one hundred million that was you know would the highest anybody was doing will come forward to twenty twenty. Now i'm at seven hundred million but second-place is still at one hundred million. I could have stayed at one. Hundred million had chosen to really easily. You know how by i could kept almost systems saying i could have not open to grow. I could have never bought a house or property or taking any risk. I could have been that broker that makes my money going one way or makes it go in the other so in other words if the market gets in trouble i go out. Take a class on get help. People go through foreclosures idea. Help them do short sales and then when it gets good again i just sit back and catch whatever little portion my biz can catch or i can take control of my own business. Put the financial gains. I making any particular time over here on the sidelines to wait and and be conditioned that once things get to the bottom of the trough again to go full in while everybody else is taking a break waiting to find out what to do. I strike and to your three years before the eggs back in now. That's that's a risk taker. But you know you put your shot little bit on the side is your comfort and then you go back in jim. This was such a great interview on the one thing that i took away from this more than anything else is when there's a problem. Lean into it. That's what you find opportunity jim. We need to do another Podcast later on. We're going to talk about how you built your team and grow your people and thanks so much for being on the program. You're you're welcome one thing. I do want to say before a short one thing all of us to the profession. we'd take something out every day. Think about what your contribution bat can be you. You made your money a certain way. You took all the all the all of it out now. Once you get to a position success how do you get back. The reason i agreed to do this with you. Today is one of those things i'm not afford. I'm not charging people who talked to me about it. You know we figure a lot of tax lidge anything you think of. We have something we can help you with. Well i offer that all up to every other brokers that comes in contact with me for free. Because i realized only the ones on the top four tyler. Do anything with it. The rest of them. It'll be good for their tool shed in one of these days. Maybe they'll use some of it. They may not but at least we improve. Our business is knowledge is not meant to be locked away. It's meant to be share. We're solidified thank you so much. Jim art like thank. You feel if you enjoyed this episode please to issue of viva five star rating.

Podcast: Pursuing a Game-changing Brain Scan for Parkinson's (Ask the PhD Video)
"This is Michael J.? Fox. Thanks for listening to this podcast. Learn more about the Michael J. Fox Foundation's work and how you can help speed a cure and Michael J. Fox dot org. Welcome to a recap of our latest asked the PhD Video Listen Scientist Michael J. Fox Foundation break down the latest Parkinson's research projects in the search for the next big breakthrough learn more about Parkinson's disease research free resources like this podcast are always available at Michael. J. Fox Dot Org. At the Michael J. Fox Sunday we continued to make strides in our mission toward groundbreaking Parkinson's research our latest step, a ten million dollar competition enabled by global business leader and Philanthropist Ken Griffin. This program encourages scientists to develop a game changing Parkinson's tool the Michael J. Fox foundation staff scientist. Dr. Jamie Eberling has been at the forefront of this effort. Opposite Glenn is a protein that's found in everybody in Parkinson's disease. Alpha. Snoop Leeann. Accumulates in the brain abnormally we think that by getting rid of those clumps of outs nuclear in the brain, we might be able to improve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. There are a number of companies that are working on drugs to lower levels of alves nucleus in the. Brain, these drugs are regressing through clinical trials but how would we know that we've lowered the the levels of nuclear in the brain unless we have some way of measuring that the best way would be to be able to actually visualize alphabetically in in the brain and the foundation hopes to do just that by supporting research to develop a pet tracer a kind of drug that binds the protein Elvis nucleus and shows its volume and location in a brain scan. It's very hard to find a drug that binds to Alpha. But that doesn't also bind to other things. We don't know for sure that it's even possible to make but I think we'll have an answer within the next couple of years. The foundation has been enabling Work Alpha nucleus tracers for over a decade even announcing a prize to the first to develop the tool, we launched the off cynically Ian Imaging Prize in Twenty Sixteen. It's a two million dollar prize to the first group that develops a selective house nuclear and pet tracer, and in two thousand and nineteen research teams received another impetus to work in this area. The Ken Griffin Alps nuclear. Imaging competition is a new program that we recently launched its ten million dollar program. In total researchers are hopeful that Alpha cynically in tracers will advance development of new treatments to slow or stop Parkinson's the trial fails is it because lowering Alpha new clean in the brain? Isn't a good therapeutic strategy or is it because we didn't actually lower house new Canaan, the brain at this point, we wouldn't know. So we want to make sure that we're selecting patients with Parkinson's disease that have obstinate. Glenn. In the brain and this can be really challenging early in the disease because the diagnosis is often uncertain than once you enroll the the right patient, you can make sure that your drug is having the desired effect of lower in those levels in the brain. When I started at the Michael J. Fox foundation very few groups were working to develop nuclear pet tracer. So the initial funding, the the Fox Foundation provided was to generate the tools and assets that are needed in order to work in this field, and those are the the tools that are being used today by many groups. So I think that was a really important contribution that started things. And we've continued to fund more and more groups both industry groups and academic groups to continue to work on this problem because the more that work on it the better chance we have that somebody will succeed and maybe more than one person. Hopefully. Thank you for your support Parkinson's research visit Michael J. Fox Dot Org for more on these projects and how you can play a role in speeding a cure for Parkinson's disease.
