Streamlining the Hiring Process for Nurses With Dr. Iman Abuzeid of Incredible Health
"The genesis of incredible health came from my background right. So i am an md a lot of friends and family members that are doctors as well who were often complaining about understaffing at the same time. My co founder. Who's a software engineer from. Mit import. lock. His sisters are nurses and they were saying. Hey i'm experienced and qualified and still takes me two three months to get my next job. I applied a ten fifteen places. I often don't hear back. This is a very common experience for nurses by the way even today and so we just figured there just has to be an easier way to solve this problem so essentially the problem you identified. Was this kind of the process. Right of hiring. Nurses was broken. Which doesn't make sense right because you would think you know with the shortage and hospitals needing nurses they would bring him on but hospitals are also big bureaucracies with lots of different challenges. So i guess it does make sense. You identified this problem. Which was the hiring the on boarding process and and all the bureaucracy involved. You decided to figure to streamline it and that was the genesis of incredible health. That's right and it's now expanded beyond just the place where a nurse finds the job. It's the place where he or. She manages their career. I mentioned continuing education earlier. We also have free salary estimators. We have a couple more services than are launching at the end of this year as well. That's exclusively for nurses. So it's it's really become the place where you manage your entire career on incredible health. Well i'm wondering him on. How does the business model work do. Hospital subscribe pay subscription fee to the site. Or do they pay you know. Every time they hire somebody you get a fee sort of kazakh model designed as a subscription and then that the hospitals are picking are selecting different. Tiers that are based on volume of one hundred percent free for the nurses when nurses go and work at hospitals. Do they tend to stay at the same hospital for a long time. Or is there high turnover. Are they moving around to different hospitals. Yeah so for our platform specifically we only do permanent workers right. We don't do any contract. Workers now look nursing in general is known for high turnover right so usually it's seventeen percent is a national annual turnover right now and so retention is also a hot topic and a very important topic for these for these employers as well and we'll try to do whatever they can to try to keep their nurses so let's go back to the beginning of this year. At what point. Did you realize that this pandemic is going to be a major problem and that the service you offer was was potentially going to be in high demand. I figured this out. Put this altogether. Probably in january february and now is because i was on twitter on and honestly the most amount of information was coming from epidemiologists. Md's and public health experts around the world because we weren't getting real time data here in the us so twitter twitter was actually the my source for figuring this out. I know you've got a team of about thirty people. You're based in san francisco right. We are headquartered in san francisco. Our team is in different parts of the country. So when you realize that this was potentially going to be a huge issue did you see an immediate spike in demand for your services. We did a certainly by april. There was a spike in demand for specific types of nurses. If you're an icu nurse. Or e deaners the hiring for that like increased by three x on our platform like right away and we saw a drop. For some of the other specialties because surgeries were getting canceled but since then since july august the demand for every single role has dramatically increased because not only are hospitals operating at full capacity also dealing with this pandemic. So how did you start to position your your company and your business to meet that demand so there were few things that we did We a few months ago. We launched what we call the pandemic hiring sweet right and what that is is a a range of features and tools that even more dramatically accelerates the hiring and really helps. The hospitals reduce costs because they had gone through some very severe financial hardship. Right so a couple of the things that we did was we added in automated interview scheduling remote interviewing. Because that's just what you have to do. During a pandemic in-app chats enhanced are matching algorithms. All of these with the goal of accelerating the hiring even further so we got down to twelve days now and on average we save every hospital that we work with at least two million dollars because they dramatic try to reduce their travelers costs as well as our overtime in asia. Our costs so essentially last year or the year before. If you were nurse using your platform you would have done and in-person interview at least one. You've traveled to the hospital. And that of course has gone away. That's gone so that's not even a feature anymore. Now everything is happening. Virtually correct and

Amy take us back to the summer when activists i called on city leaders to cut as pd funding by fifty percent right and a majority of seattle city council members agreed to that principle council members did try to make immediate cuts in salaries and certain police units. You know we saw chief carmen. Best resigned over their methods but as discussion began on next year's budget it became clear. The council wasn't seeking a fifty percent cut right away to recent escape a chairs the budget committee. And here's where she says. They ultimately came down regarding our seattle police department. The seattle city council along with the mayor competent combination of both cuts out twenty percent twenty percent and that includes both cuts and transferring some functions outside of spd right twenty percent not fifty percents. So how significant is that reduction Well if you look at other cities it's very significant. Cancel member mosquito has pointed out. Seattle has gone farther in this effort than any other.

Why Having a Business Mentor is Essential to Success
"Today. I have two guests. My guests are kevin harrington and mark tim as an original shark on the hit. Tv show shark tank. The creator of the infomercial. Pioneer of the as seen on tv and co founding board member of the entrepreneurs organization. Kevin harrington has pushed past all the questions and excuses to repeatedly enjoy a hundred times success his legendary work behind the scenes of business ventures has produced well over five billion dollars global sales launch of more than five hundred products. And the making of dozens of millionare's twenty of his companies have each top two hundred million dollars in revenue. Martyrdom has been a serial entrepreneur an exponential thinking practitioner for almost three decades. He started more than a dozen companies. Several of which have multiplied imminent sold. They are the co authors of the great book mentor to millions. Thanks so much for joining me today. guys be here. Thank you a great to be here. Awesome so mark. I am going to start with you and ask you to share selvi. Would you think are important lessons that you learned from heaven in your mentor mentor relationship. Well kevin Kevin was kind of the dream. Mentor for me. You know he was he. He became my guide in my own. Entrepreneurial endeavors i had had a successful business multiple businesses. But i kept topping out at a certain level and when i looked at kevin as a shark you know i'm like he's taken over. Twenty businesses dobra hundred million dollars. He could really help me to scale and so to be candid. I had to give the best pitch. This guy's heard over fifty thousand pitches. And so i went to kevin and said hey look i know your time is valuable. I know that You've got a lot of wisdom you could share for me so if you would be my mentor. I'm gonna make this easy for you. And i'm going to become your student. And that was a pitch that he hadn't heard before thankfully and he said yes and so he became my guide in my entrepreneurial pursuits. I learned you know. Probably the two biggest things i learned was about following the eyeballs. He calls a aggressive curiosity at the short hand for that is follow the eyeballs. Where are people looking. The chances of success in business and scaling is if your business in the path of where people are looking in. So i started putting more my efforts behind commerce because as you can tell right now. We're shopping from home. That's herat and so it was perfect. Timing for me to invest in that category. Because wow my business this year. I can tell you that i'm actually on my way to my first one hundred million dollar business because of my mentorship with kevin and then he also taught me a concept about the dream team and the dream team. Here's here's the mistake. I was making and by the way so is ninety. Nine point nine percent of everybody in their business. I had this crazy notion that i was hiring people i could afford and you know. And that sounds so intuitive. And that's what we normally do. When we're growing our business. But kevin has this concept called the dream team where he told me i would rather have ten percent of the time of a cfo that could take me a hundred million dollars than one hundred ten percent of the time of a cfo. That wouldn't get passed a million and that's the concept of who you can afford often caps you out and taps you out versus putting a dream team in place sometimes which you don't even have to pay them if you incentivize them the right way but if you put a dream team in place that can take you where you need to go than likely. You're going to get there. And so i would say aggressive curiosity dream team to the biggest lessons i learned from kevin but most of all i took what i learned from kevin. I started applying it to home. I started treating family like the most valuable business in the world. And i found out that aggressive curiosity works at home and my ultimate jer. Green team is my family at home. And i started seeing results. That are beyond anything i could ever imagine at home. And that's when we wrote the book mentor to millions. That was one of the commitments. We made we teach all the lessons. That kevin taught me but we try to end every chapter with how you can take that lesson home to your most valuable business and bring them your best and your first instead of your last in your least oh my goodness i just love that and i have to say that i love this concept of aggressive curiosity because i am all about Well you may notice that. The end i remind people to stay curious because it is so key and i love this dream team concept i get that so many people hire who they think they can afford and they miss out on who they need to get their business where they want to go so kevin. I'm assuming that you think every business owner should have a mentor. Is that a fair assumption. Absolutely i believe let's put it this way if you're a startup entrepreneur or startup business owner. You don't know what's coming up. Kobe through a lot of wrenches in a lot of businesses for many that were some of the most successful business owners were were were. It was like pulling the rug out from under them right. This is is business life. It were were throwing curveballs every single day. A thirty years ago one day my my bank shut down my merchant account and grabbed two million dollars out of my account. And i didn't know what to do. Well i got some mentors. That helped me through that. And and because i was never a finance guy and so people have different strengths and and entrepreneurs though tend to a lot of a lot of entrepreneurs her soul entrepreneurs they take pride in being the the entrepreneur to do it themselves to be their own boss. What they don't realize is that you know when they were inside that corporation with that big structure and all those people you know there was other people that were doing the things that maybe they weren't good at and so now that they're responsible for all parts of the business. It's now time to make sure that you've got the right support team as mark and i call it the dream team to help you succeed in that and a dream team can be one or two or three or some grouping of mentors and coaches that you can bring together so i think everybody needs one

The "Dungeons & Dragons" Murder
"A North Carolina suburb in the early morning of July twenty fifth nineteen eighty-eight. On evonne, Stein awoke to an intruder at her bedside holding a knife and club. Bunny was severely beaten and stabbed, but she somehow managed to stay alive and call for help after the intruder left Leith was not selected. However, he was stabbed and bludgeoned to death when investigators learned that his estate was worth over two million dollars naturally his wife and stepchildren became suspects. Yeah. The amount I've heard varying stories on the amount, but it was around two million dollars. So a considerable amount of money especially in the nineteen eighties her was. The von Stein family lived in the small town of Washington North Carolina. And the rest of the state calls this town little Washington to differentiate it from Washington DC in Washington state. But I guess the people who live there like to call it the original Washington because it is the first town to be named after George Washington. That's an interesting tidbit for you. Can we fact check that I have done that but if we WANNA double check for me so it was the first town as we now yet. Okay. So. Whether you call it little Washington or original Washington the town was virtually destroyed in eighteen, sixty four, and then again in nineteen hundred by some devastating fires, a few homes survived and it was rebuilt and it became a farming and fishing community. So with a population of just over ten thousand pretty small. It's known as a sleepy town, but actually a pretty good place to raise your family low crime. I would imagine ten thousand is Pretty small but not too bad. So yeah probably be a nice place to raise a kid. Yeah, I. Think so. So, lease was born in Queens New York in nineteen forty six to parents who both came from well off German families who it is still a baby. The family moved to North Carolina his father Howard was a graduate of Brown University and he'd been a professional saxophone player before fighting in world. War? Two. After. The war. The Big Band era who is starting to be on its way out? And it was getting hard to find work as a saxophonist. So at this point, he had a wife and a baby boy to support so. Howard decided he needed to find a steady job. He ended up taking one offered by his brother-in-law as a laundry equipment salesman. He and I think he was successful at that. But maybe not at his happiest, right because he was an artist and musician. But he was successful. CONC- that whoever you're good at what you do that you're just not totally in it. Exactly. So lead Smart Marie does it on him she spoiled him and gave him pretty much anything he wanted. But you know he remained respectful and loving and had a good work ethic. By, the time he was in high school, the camel city laundry and cleaners had become one of the most successful laundries in the whole country. and lead stand Howard had become part owner and they were employing over one hundred people. But you know. Lee. had no interest in the laundry business and his dad totally understood that. So li-the never took a part time job that his father offered him at the laundry. He had decided on another career you're lethal is accepted into the school of Engineering at North Carolina State University. He. Was Successful for the first two years. But then in the junior year kind of his motivation and slacked off. He got into partying pretty heavily and he flunked out in nineteen, sixty seven. Now, the problem with this or this time is that the Vietnam War was going on. So guess what happened Oh Leaf He's drafted. Yeah. His parents were pretty frantic and worried about this as you can imagine or you're their only son, their only child. So he was twenty one years old by this time, and fortunately for him, his two years of college helped him get assigned to clerical work. So instead of being sent off to fight a war, he was stationed in office in Germany. Of course, he knew some German. So that came in handy to after his discharge from the army in nineteen seventy lethal returned home and enrolled at Guilford College in Greensboro as a business major. Gilford was a small quaker college. So some faculty and students held weekly silent vigils against the Vietnam War on the federal courthouse lawn. And Leaf was agreeing with them. He didn't think this war should be going on. Your a lot of this at that time didn't think that was a good idea. Shabby. That were absolutely it was the movement. So. Although he had been conservative for most of his life leaked did get some strong opinions against the war and he let his hair grow out to his shoulder started wearing blue jeans and he got a pair of those small round wire rimmed glasses that John

Interview with Jeremy Stoppelman of Yelp
"This industry has just been absolutely hammered unlike any other industry travel leisure as well. So many people go to yelp for restaurants. So did you anticipate that pretty quickly early on that restaurants we're going to get hit or did that come as a surprise to you? We had some sense that restaurants are gonNA, get hit. What of our? More Cedar product managers of Chinese person who had lots of contacts in China and was relying like all the changes that restaurants were going through in. China to try and adapt at the outset of the pandemic like this is crazy. They're doing all these things with temperature checks at the door like delivered new delivery things partitions, and it just seemed so unlikely that that could be our reality especially at that time call it early March, we were studying this and everything still felt normal but it was you know pretty soon we could start seeing impacts in some of the cities that were hardest hit in the. US. So for example, Seattle and You. Know that obviously got US thinking about business ramifications and okay restaurants, which is a big portion of our traffic are going to be hard hit. You know what can we do? We weren't going to charge restaurants for instance, for that period where traffic was following and even if they were getting some value, you know the everyone is thrown into total chaos and like there really isn't a whole lot of point to advertising. Traffic is falling like that. So so pulling together, a bunch of different things to support the restaurant nightlife industry at a time, became a big priority and ultimately culminated with about thirty two million dollars, worth of forgiven fees and young. To Support Restaurants Jeremy Your Business Model depends largely on advertising on businesses that advertise on the platform and businesses that depend on ads have had a difficult time because companies are cutting back on their ad spence. For obvious reasons, they've got to preserve cash in many cases. And this has actually pretty dramatically affected your business yelps business right I mean over the over the past year that was one of the scariest things a particularly about march in April you know in a pandemic especially as things are shutting down. WHO's buying advertise wait? So that was my great fear was you know is our revenue going to go toward zero like maybe it's not zero, but is it going to go towards zero pretty darn quickly. We had some very stressful difficult conversations around my the different potentially catastrophic scenarios. What would we do? How do we survive you know? Is there a freeze? The company amber type strategy literally was something we were talking about like where we just go down to the skeleton of staff fits a nuclear winter type of situation. Fortunately, the world did start to re stabilize and as the panic subsided, there were businesses that actually were doing even finer good You know like as all of us were sheltered at home. Suddenly if your toilet backed up, you're calling the plot a plot. Being more busier and some people started moving later in the pandemic mover traffic was doing reasonably well and so there ended up being areas of our business because we are diversified we're no obviously widely for restaurants, but we also have. Reviews and customers in all sorts of local services categories as well. Area of the business has been quite resilient contractors and and and so on. Interesting I remember when you on the podcast you talked about to crisis moments I remember was when you were x dot com and you were just Totally, terrified that I think that pay pal was gonna like crush you guys and you'd sleepless nights about that and then the other one was when you started yelp and nobody came to the party like it was really just didn't gain any traction in the in the months many months and you will really worried you had a lot of anxiety about and you talked about that and this sounds like even more intense what you went through in March and April. Just probably personally, I? mean. Planning for a nuclear winter. But in in some senses like I wonder whether anticipating that possibility actually was in a sense probably the best way to game out what your strategy would be. Because in the end, it didn't work out that way but it but you were planning for the worst. Yeah. One of the things that I would say was beneficial of going to that awful place in our minds with I'd say at the early part of the pandemic, it's hard for people to really wrap their heads around the scope of the problem how big the problem is how it's going to change our lives it just seems. Unbelievable. and. so by forcing other executives managers, etc start thinking about this, this could be the big one just so to speak. You know it gets you into a brain's base that did shift everyone's thinking to. The A big problem. We have to take this extremely seriously, and there's going to be big changes and moves that none of us are going to like we have to do to ensure the survival
A lesson from Trump's taxes: An underfunded IRS is outmatched
"And so part of the reason that president trump has been able to pace a little taxes at least according to the Times is because his businesses have lost so much money they've lost more than a billion dollars and he. Has, used the carry forward provisions among other things to reduce his tax bill for years and years. You know when you have business losses, it's like you have like money in the tax bank that you can use to pay less taxes in the future. Now, originally back in nineteen eighteen when carry-forward I started if you lost money one year, you could use that loss to reduce your taxes for next year but only for that one year and then a while later Congress said you know what you can carry over losses. For two years then Congress extended it further to fifteen years and eventually congress said you can spread your losses out. You can carry losses forward for as long as you want forever President Trump signed the bill that made that change into law in two thousand, eighteen and Isaac says there are good reasons to have this provision in the tax code it can be helpful for struggling businesses. So on the one hand, you kind of don't want your tax system to bankrupt a viable business just because it has a bad year. Right. So that's one. So it's useful but also but but depending on, you know how clever you are about your investments and how you go about booking what counts as a loss. There's lots of room to kind of gain with creative accounting. It is it is wildly open to abuse. So carry-forward is sometimes a reasonable useful thing and sometimes something that people and businesses abuse to pay less taxes than they should, and there are people at the irs whose job it is to figure out for every tax return that uses this provision you know which is this reasonable or is this abuse but as it says, the funding that pays for the IRS to enforce carry forward rules and the rest of the tax code, it has been cut for years it's been. A pretty substantial. block of the Republican Party in Congress has lined up behind the idea of really depriving the irs of teeth especially, the enforcement arm that that goes after. The rich and just like think about how expensive it can be to audit the taxes of the ultra rich fridge people do not have simple straightforward tax returns. They have a ton of paperwork fancy lawyers in. So look at the story we read The New York Times about the president's taxes right and and it was a picture that they have to assemble by looking at hundreds of different tax returns for hundreds of different entities. Now imagine having to do that for every even for one in ten rich people in the United States right Obviously, it can't be done. Except there's one congressional committee that specifically looks into the super-rich but only in some cases but but. One of those cases use the case of president trump. There was this one paragraph in the time story I mean there were a lot of paragraphs in the time story and a lot of it was interesting but there was one paragraph in particular that really I wanted to understand better. So the paragraph was related to this seventy three million dollar tax refund that Donald Trump apparently got in two thousand and ten and that he and the government are still fighting over. Okay. I'm going to read this paragraph it says quote refunds require. Blah. Blah Blah in opinion of the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation Blah Blah Blah and tax law requires the committee to weigh in on all refunds larger than two. Million dollars to individuals. So what this paragraph is saying is there is a committee in Congress that has to give an opinion every single time the irs is about to send some rich person, a multimillion dollar tax refund as I read this and I thought like why you know what is going on you have questions. So I called Dave Norton he's a corporate lawyer who used to work at this committee, the Joint Committee on taxation, and he told me this is not a normal kind of congressional committee. You know it doesn't right laws. It doesn't hold hearings where lawmakers ask questions that are really more like comments and the joint committee staff is. A non-partisan expert staff of economists. Lawyers. Accountants. So it's like it's like Congress's. Team of tax nerds. That is a good way to put it. Exactly, right mostly the nurse on this committee figure out what different changes to the tax code would mean for the government and for the economy, you know how different potential tax tweaks would work. But a few of them go into work everyday and review giant tax refunds that the IRS is about to send out it's it's interesting because it's so one by one right you don't think of Congress as doing. Anything on like we'RE GONNA get every big tax refund that goes out in America. But that is what they're doing here and I agree it is It is pretty unusual. It might be unique in terms of something that the Congress would get involved with Congress got involved with this back in the nineteen twenties basically because they didn't trust the person who was overseeing the IRS, the Treasury Secretary Andrew Melon. Melon was one of the richest men in America. Also, one of the biggest tax payers in America had all these business interests that he held onto he was treasury secretary, and so congress was like wait you're the boss of the IRS and you owe all these taxes and you have investments and all these businesses that the IRS is supposed to be taxing that seems very shady. You know we want to make sure that you're not just having the irs and you and your pals massive tax refunds. So what we congress are going to do is we're going to pass a law that requires this Joint Committee to review big refunds. Congress basically said tax nerds keep an eye on these rich guys in the refunds, and so here we are almost one hundred years later and the tax nerds. They are still keeping an eye on these guys, and that's why in two thousand eleven trump's refund made its way to this committee. Apparently, the committee reviews hundreds of these refunds a year. So it's you know. Sort of, but there are a couple of things in this case in the case of Donald Trump's giant refund that are unusual. One unusual thing is typically the committee reviews the refunds before they get sent out to tax payers make sense. Yeah. It would think you would think but there is this special corner of the law and it actually applies to sort of the twin Sarah of what you were talking about earlier in the show the twin of the carry forward provision right where you can carry forward losses. The twin is Keri back. Here's how Carrie backwards if you lose money in the year, you're filing your taxes for now instead of carrying those losses forward as you do in carry forward, you can look back to. The past, you can say, look a few years ago. I was making tons of money I was on the apprentice and I paid tons of taxes, and so what I WANNA do is I want to carry my losses from the present back into the past and I want you to give me a refund for all of those taxes I paid a few years ago. Right so that is what president trump in fact was doing in this case when he got this giant seventy-three, million dollar refund and the special provision of the law that applies here is actually something they call a quickie refund and so innocent. Cute little seventy-three, million dollar tax refund and what happens with a quickie refund is the IRS. Okay. We will send you the refund before we've done a thorough evaluation of your claim and you have to promise that. If we ultimately decide that your claim for this refund, not you're going to give us back the money. So that's what happened here. That is thing number one that was unusual to quickey refined I seventy three million dollars. Yes. Okay. So thing number two that is unusual is just how long it has taken to figure out whether the refund was legit. You know whether the president in fact qualified for the refund under the law so Typically. The Joint Committee Clears Clears Refund reviews. In about three weeks maybe a little bit more than three weeks in a kind of standard run of the mill case they've says that some really complicated cases might take a few months to figure out but the president's case is still unresolved and it went to the committee nine years ago years they've says, he never saw anything take anywhere near that long when he worked at the Committee I never saw years Adam okay. So a case that went on for years would be very unusual in your experience. That's fair. Say yes and you know it makes sense that once Donald Trump becomes president trump the case would become exceptional and more complicated and take longer but this was already going on for years before that happened and so it's not entirely clear why it's taking so long. So Okay we've been through what's going on with the president's case, and also where does this weird committee review come from The one last thing I wanted to ask Dave was does it even makes sense to have a special Congressional Committee Review You know individual tax refunds you sort of worked on both sides you you were describing working for clients whose refunds are held up by the committee you've worked on the committee holding up People's refunds as you study them. Do you feel like it's useful? I do think just from a from a revenue perspective the taxpayer gets huge bang for the buck out of the C. T. Refund review process it costs almost nothing to run. It's you know as I said, just a few people and they can be counted upon to spot millions and millions and millions of dollars of potential mistakes. The spotting thing. Hey, look this is this million here million there at this shouldn't be going out for this this this reason

I think you're doing great job. Hello. The candidate he's right there. For Life Magazine. Thirty nine year old Joe. Kennedy is facing something unexpected. Seventy four year old senator who has been in Congress for almost forty four years. Has Managed to galvanize support of young voters. Ahead of Tuesday's Massachusetts Senate primary I think that a lot of young people that are our age at least. From from our town have been similarly really inspired by Ed Markey polls show Senator Ed Markey as the favourite threatening to make the four term. The first Kennedy to lose a race in Massachusetts unlike other primaries this year were democratic incumbents have been ousted by liberal newcomers. Marquis has managed to turn that dynamic on its head because it's about ideas. I am the youngest guy. In this race Alexandria, it's been murky seizing the mantle of the insurgent, touting his support of liberal causes at the green new deal and endorsement of the progressive firebrand. Alexandria Cossio Cortes such the green new deal that I introduced Alexandria Cossio. Healthcare justice is on the ballot. That's Medicare for all that I next the Bernie. Sanders. When he introduced it yet, it's been Kennedy with the badging of the party establishment leader Speaker Nancy Pelosi Allies have been frustrated that marquee has not been held to account for full record over four decades like his backing of the Iraq war in two thousand and two the NAFTA deal in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three, his position on racial issues like school desegregation dating back to the nineteen seventies progressive willing to look those hurdles that's up to a progressive movement.

Guess It's a fighting. His blood wants to continue in the Senate tried to be really clear that it's GonNa Balance It's not my father, my grandfather brothers or anybody else and. You vote for me you're going to get now Kennedy does pull off an upset on Tuesday night it could be thanks in part to the fact that he is allies have spent more on television advertising than Markey and his allies roughly two million dollars more. But if he loses what Kennedy will do next still an open question we posed that question to him he didn't want to entertain it and said, he looks forward to running through the finish line and celebrating on Tuesday night.

When we're saying those are sixty five to seventy five would be at the age of seventy and a half. And now we have to start taking money from like the 4._0._1._K's the IRA's money that has not been taxed yet. The IRS has we'd let you tax deferred this. We want our money now and at age to seventy half. And this goes till the end of our life is way, I understand it. It's kind of crazy starts around three point six percent. I think at seventy and a half and just keeps going up from there. But talk a little bit about required. Minimum. Distributions don't want to miss this. Do you? Yeah. And again, this is knowing how to take in winter take from those retirement accounts. And what we're seeing time and time again is that people have stuffed as much money as they possibly could have differed their cop. They've put money into accounts that they've yet to pay tax on. I mean week after week. I see folks coming in here, then a wonderful job saving. You know? We're seeing really nice per folios. But. Two million dollars in a retirement account is really not two million dollars because every dollar is taxed, and so the IRS has a plan for you to pay that tax. If you no matter whether you do or not they they have a plan. And so right now the plan is to start taking the withdrawals at age, seventy and a half. And then when you die they're still tax due on that account. So what we've set out with our clients is especially right now, the new tax laws. How can we get some of this tax pain? Again, you owe it right? It's just like a debt. How do you want to pay that debt? You know? Do you want to do it the way the IRS is going to mandate you or do you want to just go ahead and do it on your schedule? And how you want to pay the tax possibly it'll save you more money over time again, that's depending on the investment so on and so forth. So these are all things that we help our clients navigate. But you just you can't totally avoid paying that tax. There's no loophole of paying the tax from. Retirement accounts, and it may make sense for you to wait till you're seventy and a half and do it according to the IRS timetable of taking your required. Minimum distributions. So if you'd like to analyze this and figure out, hey, should I keep stuffing money into maritime when account or should I, you know, my employers opened up a Roth 4._0._1._K or how do I can I convert some of this existing 4._0._1._K?
