Years old A bunch of buddies of mine. A date fact where i grew up in dayton ohio poker was real popular with the kids and We started a regular weekly gave when we were like in the eighth grade. I used to ride a bicycle to whoever's house was having the game and we and we played for money we played for nichols dives and quarters. And you might win ten or twenty dollars so it was a good score back then. Did you ever play the world series of poker. Oh yeah well yeah. That came much much much later. I played when i came to california. I started playing in the car groups. That were down in gardena. They used to close at four o'clock in the morning and they be closed for two hours and woken up again at six. So we go sleep in our car and then come back at six o'clock and play. My favorite rooms. Were the monterey the rainbow which were right at each other they only you could only play five card. Draw high or five cards rallo. That were the only games offered back.

Fresh update on "two thousand dollar" discussed on PetaPixel Photography Podcast
"Fresh books with fresh books. And yes i enjoy saying that. I'm never gonna stop. It's fun next once again. Sony underestimated just how popular they are because according to the company demand for the new fifty millimeter f. One point two g master is so great that it is greatly exceeded. that's their words. The expectations that they had for it. Now the senate can me says that they actually knew that demand even for this crazy expensive lands would exceed their ability to get them out quickly or at least they hoped it would and that's fine. You know it's a great problem to have people will wait. This is the kind of lands. You happily wait for especially if you have a couple of grand on a lens like this. It's likely to be a stellar lens. So it's one eight four now. It's worth noting that when this land was first announced back in mid march twenty twenty one had a pixel mothership sony if they would be able to keep up with demand for the new fifty one two and sony said they enzi any obstacles. That would keep that from happening. In fact they specifically said there weren't any current challenges in manufacturing a possible reference to the issues that caused delays in production of their thirty five millimeter f. One point four another stellar lands. And while sony isn't saying that manufacturing issues the reason for people having to wait for the fifty one to it's entirely possible that they just didn't think that demand for two thousand dollar lands would be as high as it's been especially during a pandemic one thing that he thinks sony realizes is it's become premium brand much like like and well like it's my experience that these days those with really deep pockets are increasingly buying into a full frame sony system. I'm not hearing about the rich guys or girls going with like a much anymore. It's like a switch has been flipped. You know they've seen that. Sony has all these incredibly advanced bodies and a mostly flashed out system of lenses etc including many on the g. master level. Now like this fifty one. Two and leica is kind of like whatever to them back in the day. The old guys. Let's face it was mostly all guys went with the like. So you could say you had to like or maybe you were a dentist and like it was the choice view but now it seems like many are going with sony because the technology is driving their thought process in getting these lenses and cameras by the way these two lens delays follow the ridiculously excellent twenty four millimeter f. One point four g. master. Another i was gonna say stellar just an impossibly amazing lens which was nearly impossible to find for the better part of a year after it launched. So that's three lenses now. Is that a big deal now. Not really i mean you can get all worked up about such thing and people used to do that on the forums. Maybe they still do. I don't know. I don't read them but to me it's indicative of just how popular and mature the sony system. Is you know it's the system. I'd be shooting right now if i cared about full frame which as you know i don't that's why went with fuji film again a year or two before they even start sponsoring this show. I know that you know that i was going to say that. But it's true it's smaller it's lighter it's less expensive and it's perfect for the kind of shooting that i do otherwise i would totally be all over the sony system like hands down no doubt about it in fact you may recall that when i i dabbled in mirrorless back in october i think twenty fifteen it was it was with the sony. A seven s the original the light gathering behemoth monster that it was although kind of tiny and an a six thousand a full frame and crop body respectively or respectfully if you say it incorrectly now it's unknown as to just how long it would delay. There's going be and getting your hands on sony's new fifty millimeter. One point two g master if you are so blessed with the big bucks but needless to say the sooner you get your order in that the sooner you negate yours that's still a thing about it's gonna be worth away you know by all accounts. It's an absolutely amazing lines. It's one of those lines is that you buy because you're either rich or you know that you need it. I mean it's a fifty after all a two thousand dollar fifty millimeter lands at that. You buy lens like this for that. F one point two aperture. If you're not shooting at one point to just save yourself the two thousand dollars you buy it for the f. One point two. Don't let anybody tell you. otherwise now. On a full frame body that thin slice of focus and boca is just insane. I mean it's beautiful and so sony he does it so well too. So if you're a poacher photographer and you could do some serious damage with a lens like that. Same with their eighty five millimeter f. One point four g. master. We'll see if they ever do an f. One two seems like they wouldn't though but the price tag for those. Ouch you better think long and hard before pulling the trigger on a crazy expensive lens like a fifty one to an impulse buy. This is not nope next. If.

Unpacking the American Rescue Plan
"The motion is adopted. Lowering gambino political correspondent for guardian. Usc bobby sleeping covering the one point nine trillion dollars bit relief package that passed through congress. Last week is on the way. It's called the american rescue plan. How big is it. Thur americans the plan itself is huge in scale and scope. it's one point nine trillion dollars. Which even. I sort of have to take a moment realize how massive this bill is. It's being billed as one of the biggest pieces of legislation. Congress passed in possibly generation. Many of the big measures are temporary. They're set to last for a year or just for the next few months but there are pushes already by democrats to make some of these provisions permanent that would mean pretty significant changes in the american social safety net. Can you give me some examples of ice measures. The moose well known piece of this bill is the fourteen hundred dollar checks to individuals. So if you're someone who makes below seventy five thousand dollars a year or you're a couple who makes less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year you will receive these fourteen hundred dollar checks that will come in addition to the other provisions which provide housing assistance assistance for food assistance for healthcare. Then there's this other big precision. It's called the child tax credit it's existed for a while now but this bill dramatically expands the credit and it also expanded eligibility for it so that more. Low income families qualify. What's novel is at. Its affectively of form of guaranteed income. The payments will be made monthly to these families rather than qualifying only for the credit during tax season. And that's a huge change both financially and philosophically in the way americans dole-outs welfare in this country. And so this is a provision that some policy experts have forecast would cut child poverty in half in america especially for black families and latino families. So this could have a huge huge impact on low income americans who've been especially hurt by the job losses. This is the one piece that democrats believe once it's been enacted through this legislation that they will have some success making permanent and indeed if they do it would completely restructure how we look at child welfare this country and as you said the title bell is in the trillions and when we start talking in trillions he basically leaves me but i found it something like a tenth of gdp so as you say huge how significant is for biden. And for setting out. Biden's agenda anyway. You look at it. It's a big political victory for joe biden. He came in saying he was going to do this. Part of his victory is certainly attributable to donald trump's mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and this was his promise not to mention a few months later when the senate was still in the balance to georgia senate candidates both democrats promised georgia voters that they would be sending them two thousand dollar checks if they win their races in georgia and democrats control the senate so this is seen as making good on that. Promise the the difference. The two thousand dollar checks are now fourteen hundred dollars but the democrats make the case that they said six hundred dollar checks to americans in december and so this brings up the total to two thousand. Yeah politicians always find ways to add up the numbers. Now as you said and the democrats have a slim majority in the house and a wafer thin majority in the senate because of those georgia senators a majority of one with comma harris. How difficult was this to pass. This was a big political. Lift for joe biden. And what's interesting is that it was so difficult given how popular the legislation was with the american people. Cbs news poll. Seventy five percent of americans say they support the measure including almost half of republicans in most well-known provisions of the bill pulled even higher than the entire bill itself and even then joe biden wasn't able to bring along any republicans you know. He came into office. One of his big promises was that he would be able to work across the aisle and bridge the gaps. They called this the most progressive piece of legislation in history. That absolutely did not happen for those who watching progressive means socialism. And then you have with his razor thin margins. You have a lot of factions within the democratic party. That were jostling for control. And he really had to contend with some objections from moderate democrats particularly in the senate where one senator can blow up the entire negotiation. He was able to do this this time. But i think this sets up a lot of questions about what comes
Landlords Struggling To Stay Afloat See Lifeline In COVID-19 Relief For Renters
"Relief bill passed by. Congress has billions of dollars in rental assistance. For people who've lost work can't rent and are just trying to avoid eviction. This could benefit landlords too many of them have been struggling to keep their apartment buildings up and running so some landlords are helping the residents apply for federal relief aid. Npr's chris arnold reports nearly ten million. Americans are behind on payments. According to the census. Bureau and stephanie graves. Is seeing that play out first-hand and she's a landlord who owns buildings around houston. I have a small property in town. It's about twenty. Two units and eight residents have not been able to pay over six months on and off. We'll get one hundred dollars on one thousand dollar rent grave.

Then we had the freeze in houston and the hot water heater gave out. And so that was a twenty two thousand dollar investment. We had to make with no income. And then i worry. How am i going to pay that loan if this goes on for much longer grave says a bigger property that she manages for another owner is hundreds of thousands of dollars behind on revenue with all the unpaid rents and covert related costs.

How Much Should You Spend on Marketing?
"Marketing. It's money we have to spend to bring in new customers. It's one of the things a lot of entrepreneurs neglect and they wonder why they're not making enough revenue one. Today's episode. i'm gonna give you a simple formula to know how much to spend to acquire customer. And how much and told to spend every single month on marketing a lot. We will go around doing this the wrong way. They kind of just think. I want to acquire customer in the cheapest way possible or i want to acquire as many customers as possible with the least amount of money. No no no okay. I'm going to save a lot of headaches a lot of time and especially money so this is what you're going through. Your first step is need to understand the ltv of your customer. The lifetime value. How much money on average does each customer spend at your business now. You might be using some sort of Data or revenue analytics tool like profit well or burr. Metrics or chart mogul but to keep things simple. If you don't have one of those tools about the way propolis freeze if you want to check them out. They can integrate with your payment processor. but an easy to figure out. The ltv is to kelly all the revenue you've ever made in your business and divide that by the number of customers you've had so the make things simple. Let's just say. I made one hundred thousand dollars in revenue in my business so far and had a hundred customers if i divide that that means my. Ltv per customer is thousand dollars on average. The amount of money i take from each customer in total is a thousand so some customers will spend more. Some customers will spend less but this is on average thousand dollars per customer. Now this could be because some customers are buying more of your stuff or coming back are staying longer. If it's a subscription service or Are buying up upsells. This all is factored in the ltv. It's an average of how much money you make per customer so this number is really important. Your ltv why because now you know how much you make per customer so every time you get a customer on average you're gonna make a thousand dollars from them in the lifetime of customers rating with you so now you know you need to acquire this customer for less money. You have to factor in how much it costs you to get this customer. Not only in terms of you know maybe add dollars of running facebook ads. But if there's somebody that's on your team that's hired to do this marketing person or using service you have to include that cost too but if you're doing it yourself then we're gonna go straight up the cost to acquire this customer so if you spent two thousand dollars to have a booth at a conference and you got four customers out of conference it costs you five hundred dollars each customer. If you're ltv's thousand that's not bad okay. You doubled but tv's three hundred. You lost the money on acquiring that customer. This why you're ltv is so important to know. How much money are you going to get by acquiring this customer so once you know your ltv you know you have this much wiggle room on acquiring that customer now. I like to at least start by spending twenty five percent of my ltv on the customer. Why because i have other expenses of my business. And i want to be able to skill this as much as possible so if my ltv one thousand. I don't want to spend more than two hundred fifty dollars to acquire that customer. Ltv is four hundred dollars. Then you spend more than one hundred dollars obviously the lower the caq. The customer acquisition cost the better. That means you are getting a tremendous amount of upside tremendous value from that customer with very little cost in your into acquire them. So that's a next thing you need to figure out. How much does it cost you to acquire a customer. Not every channel that you try to Market is gonna get you the same cac so you might run facebook ads and let's say for example. It costs you ten dollars per lead to get A lead and you can convert those into customer at a twenty five percent conversion rate. I mean it cost you. Forty dollars to acquire customer on facebook at you might sponsor a podcast and you have a unique link and that unique link tells you how many customers do get and this is why when it comes to something like sponsorships it's good to experiment and see With a few episodes how well it does. You can understand the caq so that you can double or triple down on this medium on this avenue of marketing.
The Perfect First Business
"Your first business can be scary intimidating nerve wracking and frankly just risky. There's so much you don't know yet because you just don't have the experience under your belt so it's really important for you. To mitigate that risk too many first time entrepreneurs shoot for the stars they start like a software company requires a lot of town a lot of engineers a lot of funding or they get into e commerce and they wanna sell physical goods and items in their ecommerce store which requires inventory storage tons of technology and a lot of customer headaches. How do i know this well. I have a software company webinar. Ninjas i mentioned before i had an ecommerce store was in retail. I had my own clothing line Over a decade ago. But i also had another type of business that really allowed me to build my other businesses and that's a service based business services any kind of business that offers a service advice expertise to customers. Let me give you an example of base business and will run with this example throughout the lesson because this is an actual real example. That i did. This is actually a business iran. I had a business business republic and it was a service business. It was a consulting firm. And i helped small businesses build and launch new websites and blogs now the great thing about a service based businesses that. You don't need to be the expert but of course if you choose a service that you are good at let's say for example you are a web developer then you can actually start with your own time and talent but it's not required. I started because i knew how to create websites. Resume were press. And i my first few clients using my own time and skill but after time i needed a scale i couldn't just do all the work myself and i actually found out that it actually makes more business sense for me not to do the work. If i were to do this business all over again. I would do just that. I would not be doing any of the actual skilled labor. So how does this work. Well let's say for example. You are charging two thousand dollars for somebody to create you a brand new blog a brand new website. This is very inexpensive. But let's just say this is where you're starting all you need to do to make a profit is to actually get it done for less. This means you can hire on upward for example people that can do the job. They can create websites in this example for you and you just be the facilitator you pass on the work to them now professionals that know what they're doing can create these things quite quickly if they're given the right information. That's where your job comes in is giving the information from the customer. What are the needs of their wants. What's our business. Lie grabbing their logo garner images Getting the copy so that we can then give it to the developer and they can load it all up and create that website. You can easily find really talented Website developers in this example for like five hundred dollars a website and you can easily charge two thousand or more when i was outsourcing it. I was charging around five thousand dollars a website. I had a full time freelance contractor. Who agreed that. He's going to do each website for five hundred dollars. And i gave plenty of work and he was working on three to four websites at a time. Yes i made a ten x profit on each project. now what's great about. Having a service based business is that you can scale this thing in your own time in your own speed. Meaning that if you don't have that many clients that's okay. You're still making a profit because you're charging somebody else to do the work per project per client and you're making a profit on each transaction and as you get more clients grow you will continue to make more profit and it becomes even more profitable and all you have to do is be the person that markets that cells that takes care of the customer the actual work the service can be outsourced to somebody else and guess what you can this with up cells and sister offerings do that with logos with business cards. I used to get other people to design them for me. Part of my team. And i would even like kind of Approved the designs before we get to the The actual customer and again make a profit on each add on each new service. This requires zero overhead from you. While you really need is a website for you to be able to bring customers into your business you only have to pay for somebody to do the work when you have a customer. There's no inventory to keep. There's no software to build or maintain by developers and you're dealing with higher price points meaning thousands of dollars per project rather than customer spending twenty thirty forty fifty dollars on smaller items like ecommerce and dealing with hundreds of customers that complained that won't refunds that have other issues you have less clients and you're making just as much money if not more as you're scaling. This is a really good business. A start with why because it makes you learn a lot of basic skills. You need to succeed in any other business.

City scraps influencer plan for George Floyd murder trial
"And finally the city of minneapolis has backpedaled on a plan. That would have used social media. Influencers paid by the city to share city approved messaging during the trial of derek. Chauvin chauvinist one of the police officers. Charged in the death of george floyd. According to the city the purpose of the plan was to use influencers to send messages targeting specific communities such as the black community in an effort to quote address slash dispel incorrect information in quote. They were to be paid two thousand dollars for the job. The announcement caused concern. And i think that's understandable. Now after all for one thing. The term influence sir carries a bit of baggage with it. Right i mean you're influencing how think and behave and when you've got a high profile case that contributed to a major social movement that being black lives matter. It's a pretty delicate situation. City reps said that the intent was to get messages out to the public in quick accessible and reliable ways but due to the concern of the proposal. It's not going to happen now.

The Supreme Court says Donald Trump Must Provide His Tax Returns
"We're going to start today's program heading to the united states now where the supreme court has ordered donald trump to hand over his tax returns and other financial records. Trump's been resisting attempts to do so for several years. Of course well. Let's get the latest now on this. With suzanne lynch washington correspondent at the irish times Good morning to you. Suzanne good from here in london up. Bring us up to speed with the latest. What do we know. The supreme court issued a very short very significant ruling yesterday and which basically ended donald trump's attempts to shield his financial records and he is being in a battle to stop prosecutor in manhattan from getting access to his tax returns and other financial records is the second time surpreme course weighed in on this. The first time is over the issue of whether sitting president at could be shielded because road as president. But this time. Ed supreme court put it outside this decisive ad. Fees for mr trump effect. Now looks at like very much. So at these records now would have turned over to investigators new york and Mr trump's accountants perhaps bankers to will have to hand over documents related to his financial affairs and give us a sense. We obviously we had a little clip from trump at the top of the show. Easy talks about you. Know the the greatest witch hunt in history continuing Can can he fend this off in the same way. Actually he dealt with some of the bulbs that were involved in the impeachment hearings or does the fact that i guess we're looking at a judicial action potential criminal irregularities. Does that change the way that he needs to sort of Defend the charges almost. Yes i know. Yeah designed so far is up. No because yesterday he had a very very strong statement ad calling this a political persecution and calling it a fishing expedition and directly criticizing at the supreme court and and people remember. He himself pointed three of the members of the supreme court book directly criticizing the court and of course the federal prosecutors in new york Have don has kind of fallen out with new york. He moved out of the city and the dolphin clashed with officials in that city. He's obviously quite unpopular in his home town of york city on. It's the attorney general there. Sarah advanced who's reedy at take upon himself to pursue at trump for these for these charges. Say i mean we could be looking at a criminal. Trial of a former. Us president if this is to continue and is a both would way of looking at this as parts of the reason. Perhaps trump is saying. It's part of this long term witch hunt in that in congress people remember before his first impeachment and ahead of us because a lot of oversight into donald trump's at russia connections and then there was an inquiry into hush money he paid add to the adult film star stormy down one hundred thirty thousand dollars and this began this pursuit then by the new york attorney general he then decided to this payment and say what was that saying about campaign finance laws about highly payment of one hundred thirty two thousand dollars that was actually made by mike cohen. His lawyer but then he said trump in bach and this if you like your unraveled with thread of inquiry into donald trump's taxes now this is where we are am so what are the significance is about. Oh that was. Yesterday's rooting is not not only. Will they get access to his tax records but also the business and financial very detailed information that accountants bankers will have on which your tax records are based If you like. So that's going to be probably even more info important than actually getting access to his tax records. Which as you know the new york times already seem to seem quite a bit about whether we don't know how much actual detailed information they have aspect to this that i find absolutely fascinating is of course the the conflicting interests of politicians be they Members of the of the gop from the democratic movement in terms of their interests or not in trump continuing to be to be in the spotlight because there were suggestions even obviously during the impeachment proceedings clearly suited some of in the republican movement for that to just be dealt with swiftly as possible. There were also suggestions though that even for the democrats. It was kind of better that that was just dealt with. It was finished even if he wasn't convicted. Does that does that delicate balance shift. Now i is there a sense of one either side of the political spectrum if you like that actually we just don't want trump in the in the spotlight anymore. I'm actually if he can play this narrative the witch hunt that he's he's got a soapbox day people coming to him to hear from him. Is it more damaging could it be more damaging to proceed ings. Go ahead it's very possible. I mean it is very possible because as you say. Donald trump has been an easy foil for democrats over the last four years a now if he feels i think a lot of his supporters argue to sympathize with him and say that this investigation is politically motivated. Donald trump brand and it's always been problematic has been around his his business and is you his his. He sees the success of a business person and other people in these tax records seems to show that he welcomed successful as he implied. But i think would be certain that might precipitate for him from a lot of his supporters because he has said before. You know i've always just legally paid whatever talks you know. He was implying that. If i was able to game the system but you know panic attacks possible within the law with every right to do that and a lot of people would agree with on bash. So the problem is we don't actually know what is in the detail something more nefarious as there and the irs. At the criminal justice system does not look likely on talks offenses and that if he is facing criminal prosecution for this he could be in serious trouble but this was always an issue for him. I mean he didn't. He didn't disclose his tax returns around for present at most people in this country high of the fact that they do need to do that. And they're highly aware of a of their financial at connections. Even though there's a sold so much money in politics in this country in and brian politicians they do you know the important of disclosure so a lot of people may think this is catching up with him. He's a long histories of businessmen york. He's very unpopular among business. People in your because he bragged before by not paying etc and a lot of people find. This is his chickens come home to roost and yes. He had those four years in the white house. But for most it's life you the businessmen. There have every right to investigation for that date. Well i'm sure we'll show speak on this but more future. Suzanne very good to get the latest from
Why Some Texas Residents Now Face Huge Electricity Bills
"Think for a moment about that. Famous survey suggesting that many people would struggle to pay an emergency expense of even a few hundred dollars now think about texas where some people suddenly have utility bills in the thousands of dollars. It's a side effect of last week's storm that overcame the power grid. People who managed to keep their power are now paying for it. Christopher connelly is with member station k. e. r. a. in and joins us. Now good morning. Hi steve what's an example of the kind of costs that people face right so well. I talked to shannon mars. She has one of those big bills. She lives in frisco which is a dallas suburb with her husband. Mike and three kids in january. They paid two hundred fifty seven bucks for electricity and as of saturday. The families electric bill for the month of february was ten thousand one hundred eighty dollars and seventy six cents during those real. Yeah during those really cold days last week. The marches were paying one or two thousand dollars a day for electricity shannon. Maher said it makes her sick to her stomach to think about it too awful and there's nothing you can do and i've been really stressed about it and ten thousand dollars is a ton of money. I guess you gotta explain the texas system here. Because i get a utility bill. I pay the utility bill. I don't even necessarily know what my costs four day is. How does this even happen right. So this is wonky but but bear with me here so. Texas has a deregulated market for electricity. It is designed so that when there's a shortage of electricity of the price will go up in power. Companies will have an incentive to generate more electricity that deregulated market also for the sale of unusual policies. Like the ones. The mars is have plans with variable rates for electricity and those are the customers who are ending up with these sky high bills. The mars family spent hours trying to switch to a different company last week to find one with a more traditional fixed rate plan and normally they would be able to do that but the storm made that impossible so they were just sitting there watching the charges on their credit. Cards rack up. Does this suggest that this deregulation doesn't work well. It works great when the weather's good but you know it appears that there weren't market incentives in this market system for power providers to make sure that they were prepared to weather a massive winter storm. There have been warnings about that for years. Actually and the system broke down almost exactly like this about a decade ago. You know the other issue that we're seeing is that. The deregulated system assumes that consumers will fend for themselves that they'll find electricity plan where they won't get hosed if a big storm rolls in cable weight from the consumer rights group public citizen says. That just doesn't really happen. In reality people have a lot of different things tugging at their attention and their bandwidth and so a lot of our economic decisions are actually made on autopilot and therefore all these theories like that. We will shop for the cheapest and best plan for ourselves. They don't play out state trying to help. Now yeah so. There will be hearings looking into the issue. This week governor greg. Abbott says no one should have to pay these exorbitant bills and yesterday the public utilities commission temporarily blocked companies from sending out bills or shutting off customers power for non-payment abbots also saying that the state will force power plants to weather is so they're prepared for the next storm. I got to say this. Level of government intervention feels anathema to the way republicans have governed this state for decades. But there is so much political pressure right now to make changes because even as people are just starting to repair burst pipes and get the water running again. Christopher colleague of kera.

Budgeting Expenses While Living on The Road with Renewable Energy Worker Clayton
"Clayton. Welcome to the bigger targets. Many podcast. i'm so excited to have you today. Thanks guys. I'm really excited to be here. Appreciate all your advice. Throughout allentown cast stones awesome. Well thanks for listening. So clayton is a twenty six year old renewable energy worker living in the midwest and looking for some suggestions on financial planning in general so that he can retire early and lead his best life clinton. Why don't you walk us through your income and debts absolutely so right now. Actually our income just got cut by about forty percent girlfriend. Travels with me for work and she. Unbeknownst us lost her physician so lost forty percent of our income. I'm sitting at a salary for diem and a trailer allowance and then some rental income from a rental property that we have totalling about seven grand a month. Can you give us some background on that. So you say salary per diem and camper each just give us enough background in your job to understand why you have predicament camper allowance. Sure yes so. With the renewable energy side. We travel all over the country so ben everywhere from north dakota colorado oregon iowa and now down in texas so pretty gives me some money in basically not sleeping my own bed. Money right and then Trailer allowance. i live in a fifth wheel while on the road so kind of a unique living situation and they give me allowance for that too. Because there's obviously expenses that come with pulling a trailer and the wear and tear on the tyres and all that kind of thing so companies generous enough to give us allowances for those kind of things and yeah ok. Great eddie other sources of income besides the salary camper allowance pretty yup so we do have a rental property. that were satirized. Well we are at home so kind of one of those ideals to were living on the road but we have a home base and house hacking that home base. So that's bringing in about fifteen hundred a month for us right now and it's gonna go up hopefully the next month or two. Once we finished some slight remodels and get another room rented so it should go up to about two thousand dollars fantastic. Yeah expense side of things fixed expenses. Obviously we got the mortgage. We do have a car loan and then luckily enough again with the company. I worked for their great and they cover a lot of expenses on the road so the living allowance. The lot rent recover my lower end from camper all that kind of stuff. So it's pretty limited to mainly just jim internet's phone bills and then food things like that. So the picture informant. My head is a really strong financial position. We talked about a seven thousand dollars in income. Let's exclude the house act. We got about fifty five hundred dollars a month in income and are you kind of abbreviating that to after tax dollars. Yes yeah that's all after tax. Okay great so you got about fifty five hundred and after tax dollars plus we got income from your house hack how much is your mortgage mortgage is about twelve hundred dollars a month principal interests. I thank is around seven fifty. Our insurance is actually a little bit higher because the house situation is kind of odd. An taxes are actually relatively low about thirteen hundred a year. So awesome so even with maintenance. You're probably sitting at no more than fifteen hundred dollars. Total housing costs. What are your utilities. You think as hard to us for now just because we do live on the road and it's relatively low because we're one twice a month so i don't know maybe hundred dollars okay. So you're housing is free for all intents and purposes through the house hack. Is that right correct. Yep awesome love it. How about transportation is that also largely free because of the allowance for the camper and that type of stuff. That's another benefit as Transportation's pretty much free. I gotta company truck and again the company. I work for their so generous to let me use that personal time to you which is awesome. We do have a vehicle for my girlfriend and we do have a debt on that as well and believer sitting at eighty five hundred or so see if a balance of eighty five hundred on that in cash payment associated with it okay. What would you kind of estimate your total expenses to be housing. We've got to close zero. What would you say outside of housing. Your monthly expenses are unrelated to work man. I'd say twenty five hundred ish maybe a month and that's going to be broken out between that car payment in a gym and entertainment this types of things normal year when it's not twenty twenty. We tended to spend a little bit more than now. It's a little bit less but yeah okay great. So what i'm seeing. Here is an ability to accumulate at least fifteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month in cash flow on an ongoing basis. Is that right yes awesome and then when you look at your financial position do you feel that. The opportunities are going to be on the income side on the expense side or on the capital allocations piece in terms of managing the money. You're accumulating i say right now are sitting pretty good as far as the income. I feel pretty solid with the income side of things granted like i said we did lose some of that coming in but i believe there is work to do on our expense side of things. 'cause i don't accurately track it. Everything i do is rough estimates. So i know what my phone is monthly. I know what the car payment is monthly but the food and all that stuff who knows i mean sometimes we go out and have fun and go out to local italian restaurant or whatever it is so perfect so i think we're gonna have a phone with this because your expense the way you've just described your situation. We don't housing expense. And i see a path forward here. Where if for example if your path that over the next year to you don't have to pay for housing and you don't have to pay for vehicle at least in the short run. I mean you get to that point and you have a thousand dollars per month is what i understand per diem. Is that right. Roughly a thirty six days. So depending on when i'm work that worked when i'm at home so about thousand
Restoring Common Sense in Business
"I guess today's martin lindstrom. He's the founder and chairman of lindstrom company. The world's leading brand and culture transformation group operating across five continents in more than thirty countries is also the author of a new book. We're gonna talk about today. Called the ministry of common sense how to eliminate bureaucratic red tape bad excuses and corporate bs. So martin welcome to the show. Thank you. John is a place to hear your voice again so since the subtitle has a bunch of stuff that people think of as negative. What led you to writing this book. I tell you what. Let's meteoroid it many years ago. Charlie bell where the former former former c. e. o. of mcdonald's reach out to me and he said hey martin i would love if you could reinvent the happy meal and i said sure bring it on a just have one one condition. Can we make it healthy police and challenge. He was a really good man so he said absolutely so my vision was to make six year old each broccoli and we began with storytelling so we had the forest the forest broccoli and the cucumber with the of Tomatoes with blood and kids lofted and parents loved it and even the franchisee loved it. We will not these pilots. So i went to the headquarters of of mcdonald's chicago and they said interesting. I never heard that word before in that context so i went back to europe as it is interesting. Nothing happened for two years. Nothing was silent for julius. Finally the new happy meal arrived and it was that drum rolls. It was a happy meal as we know it today with issue sugar bone and the french fries now included an apple. And that was where. I learned that if you wanna do transformations of organizations if you want to understand your consumer company have what i call an immune system so as a consequence of that. We had to the employed two psychologists to work with me in order to understand the dynamics in the corporate world because a good idea is no longer enough. A great consumer inside is not enough. You need more and you need to understand that immune system that defense mechanism for chains and that actually led me to writing this book. Because i realized very quickly that eighty percent of your work is to operate at lack of common sense and bring it back and then to transform copies towards the good. I'm sure anyone who's worked in particularly at corporate environment has experienced. I think they've come a little bit immune to it because it's just the way it works but has certainly experienced. Can you give a couple of examples of of what what is just really common rampant corporate. Bs longtime do you have. I mean i mean. I'll just let from from the end. Kobe nine jamming on a plane. The other day. Right as i sit in my seat ready for takeoff the frankly sounding was on the speaker saying. Welcome ladies and gentlemen aboard this flight. I regret to inform you that all cabin service has been completed suspended on the entire flight. Also need to inform you that the laboratories in front of the plane has been blocked. There are only now reserved for capping personnel. And by the way if you wanna use laboratories you can use the one laboratory in the back now that was because of covid nineteen. I don't need to tell you. But then i just need to ask you. That was thirty. Seven is a rose in this in this plane. So i literally had to pass by every single one hundred and seventy nine passengers and end up in a long line where i could breathe in a freshly brewed smell of toilet mixed with covid nineteen and then i was sitting in the seat. The second idea that came up with these contact tracing forms now in the old days you had to fill out all sorts of stupid forms with no one looks at an array and so this was the latest and greatest in that innovation pipeline. And here the first question was listened to this john. it's crazy. the first question was have you been in close proximity with any people you don't know within the last to allow us. The only thing you had to do was basically just to turn your head ninety degrees and that would be a stranger sitting there so you could take yes to that box. This hakin bulks was even worse. You see people don't have pen symbol because also with us multiple devices so bright. Young talent was barring the pen from the stewardess in the very front row and that pen was not walking through the entire plane and the second chris was. Have you taught anything in one have taught over the last twelve hours. I had to tick yes to that one as well. This is the minister of common sense in reverse gear. I call it call it common sense. I call it nonsense really because he's the rally not we've completely lost sense of what makes sense and for me. Common sense is seeing things as they are. Okay and doing things as the to be done set in another way. This is super important. It is to treat customers and employees as they themselves would expect to be treated. And i do think as companies grow. They lose that sense of reality the more busy dealing with himself than actually thinking about what the customers are. The consumers want so. I have to tell you one. I work with a lot of small business owners but i early in my career took project or pretty much from anybody and so i this project with a very large corporation and it was a very small project two thousand dollars semi invoice off and i gotta check ninety days later. Of course that was for two hundred fifteen thousand dollars and change that translates to france. But that was about one hundred times what i build them and i saw. I called them up. You know i thought about cashing the check. But i called them and said you know there's been a big mistake here you know. How do we rectify this well. After getting transferred to three different people. I actually then was sent for different forms that i had to fill out in order to return money to them. But i tell that story all the time because it was it was a watershed moment when i said you know what. I'm just going to start working with small business owners we. We won't have to deal with this anymore but you're so right and and johnny. It happens everywhere. But i think he's my view about this. Frankly speaking we living in a period now was unprecedented. And i don't think there's anything anymore. Cold going back to work uncalled going forward to work and by that i mean we onto situation right now where we actually can afford to reset what we once did. Rather than desperately replicating an old format and squeeze it into new way of living. I mean think about it. We all sitting in front of suman teams eight hours a day weighted. Those holly breaks go. I don't know no on any of the calls have been sitting on. Believe me just like you. I'll be sitting on a lot of those kohl's single person ever said. Hey guys at. We just had a five minute break here at just need to go to the toilet just a hole infamy. None of what people do is put the post pitcher on the sneak out to the toilet comeback after seven minutes and pretend like they're were not no away and then they asked. The question was awesome minutes. It goes so we can go back in a circle and even worse. We then continue exactly one hour. No matter how mundane a relevant conversation is because we actually did so that problem. Thirty five minutes into the conversation but the realities. We don't wanna look like we skulking or cheating in any way shape or form so we just decide to hang on clinch on and then they alternate break up here is. I have to jump on another team guys. Sorry and that sort of the ultimate. Kat is common sense going here because my property as we adopting a world of trivialities from the past onto a new format of living. And i think right. Now it's time for us to sit alone in the stat in the sand. Basically say hey. That's redefined my daily lives. Let's break it down. See where. I'm doing things which are ridiculous. Look at things which just make sense and then build up from scratch. This is the moment to do it right. And that's why published this book now because quite frankly i haven't done it myself. I'm sitting doing it right now. Realizing how much time wasting
Here's the new Democratic plan for $1400 stimulus checks
"Over the course of the pandemic america's spent about four trillion dollars supporting its economy. That's pressing nearly twenty percent of gdp before the crisis. Henry curve is our economics editor. The big question is how much adds to that support for the remainder of two hundred twenty one. And so what is in mr biden's plan as it stands now well. The total proposal from the white house is four one point nine trillion dollars of new spending. So almost half as much again is what's been spent already and actually the biggest item in that is for these. Nearly universal checks go to most americans. The biden proposal would send an upper forty nine hundred dollars to most americans and that would top the six hundred dollars they received as a result of the last stimulus bill in december to make a total of two thousand dollars which was a number that was popularized by president trump. Democrats seized on. So that's the biggest item but there's lots of other stuff in there as well as three hundred and fifty billion dollars state and local governments. That has money for vaccines testing. There's somebody to help schools reopened and there's a program in that fight child poverty by increasing america's choice tax credit a near universal hand out for families with children and republicans have have made a counter offer on the order of six hundred billion dollars. What's missing from that while they would tone down the checks as they called universal handouts make them much more means tested. That plan doesn't include any new money for state and local governments. The republicans have always said that democrats just want to use the federal government bailout states who are spending too much so they don't include that money and that's quite a big chunk and they trimmed and some other areas as well they do still have the same amount for vaccines testing and healthcare and all this discussion is going on just a few months after the the most recent round of economic aid i mean. Is it already really necessary. So what i do is i. Divide into two buckets. There's one set of things which is essentially like disaster relief. Spending the unemployment insurance extension for instance is replacing lost incomes of workers who have being turfed out their jobs through no fault of erron and are in need but then sometimes the debate about stimulus is framed as what does the economy need from a top down perspective to sort of get gdp growing again. And that's why. I think the debate is a little bit more confused. Gdp is currently down because the hospitality sector hotels restaurants and entertainment venues and transportation. Just not operating close to capacity because social distancing and it doesn't matter how much you pause that's not going to change immediately so then the question is. How much stimulus does the economy to recover. Once you can reopen and that's quite harder due to because there's a lot of debate about how quickly you're going to see things rebound wants the happens because there's so much stimulus in the economy already. What are the downsides to passing the one point nine trillion dollar bill if that number is as you say too big. So that's the big question of the moment. A lot of people think that the economic era has shifted in a way that makes that freed exploring free interest rates silo and of course to a point that is true. I think the danger is that if you do more and more stimulus that you won't overheat the economy now because so much of a shutdown but when the economy reopens maybe lots of pent-up damore doubt that so the cost is that you might get a burst of inflation later when the stimulus is if you like unleashed fully that said we have undershot our inflation targets for a long time the american economy certainly deal with a one off burst of inflation but perhaps the way to look at. It is the white house. Joe biden. They want to spend on other things as well as this bill. They also want to spend on infrastructure. Which could be bailed running into the trillions of dollars to so you may want to hold some of your firepower back in reserve for infrastructure or other priorities and so if that number is simply too big than than to think of it in that top down way what do you think a good number would be so. I think it's very difficult to come up with a good number from the top down perspective because of the uncertainty so to give you a idea of the scale here the congressional budget office. Which is america's official congressional forecaster just projected that the shortfall in america's gdp from his potential with the end of next year will be about one point three percent. The biden proposal for one point nine trillion is six times that gap. So it's really massively overshooting. So i think the right way determined how much to spend is just to look at it at disaster relief from baltimore perspective. Guard line by line and say what is necessary. I think the unemployment insurance boost is definitely necessary. The vaccine spending was obviously very high return. But when you start getting into the ferry generous checks. I think the case is weak and that also goes for the money for state and local governments at the start of the crisis. There was a lot of concern. The state and local governments in america would lose a lot of tax revenue as a result of the economy shutting down by natural fact. They've done a lot better than expected so their budgets have held up. So i think the right way to look at it would be that you should do is necessary for as long the pandemic assists and you'd probably get some close to a trillion dollars and then later if the economy needs more widespread stimulus because growth is disappointing. Maybe dan that's the time to do more. By the moment. I think is quite difficult to build a case for full nearly two trillion dollars and certainly the democrats are struggling. To make that case. I mean having said what you think woodwork What do you actually think is going to happen. Well that's quite difficult to judge at the moment. So there's this interesting trade off. The democrats will per year more or less. Have the power to override or circumvent the republican filibuster in the senate so they can get through that plans even if there's republican opposition. So they have if you like a free hit and they could use it on getting this one point nine trillion proposal through that said it's not just republicans that the white house got to worry about the moderate democrats in the senate may not support the full bill so it will probably come down a bit anyway. I think one point on trillions quite unlikely. But if they did compromise with the republicans on a small number they could save that free. Hit if you like for some other priority or indeed for passing more stimulus later. Should it prove necessary. So i think it depends on the outcome of that political judgment the white house. I think probably that they are sufficiently far away from the republicans they will use reconciliation. That's the procedure to get around the filibuster. So you will get a large stimulus. But i still think in the end is gonna come down a little bit from the one hundred and
Should You Rent Live Streaming Gear?
"On this episode. You will learn why you should consider renting livestreaming gear before you make that final purchase decision. So gem let's talk about renting livestreaming gear. Yeah i think a lot of times. We make the assumption that we have to buy this stuff. But if you're in business especially if you're a business owner you're in the business of live streaming. You actually have some options that the the hobbyist may be necessarily doesn't and that is you can lease equipment. You can rent equipment for a short period of time. I mean i have a friend that runs a video production company. He doesn't own any of his cameras. He goes and rents them whenever he gets a job for a client. Because one thing that happens with gear is this stuff gets upgraded all the time and so sometimes trying to keep up with the latest and the greatest goes into one of your favorite phrases. Yes and it's a gas gear acquisition syndrome and basically. It's the fact that you know when we buy a piece of equipment we then wanna keep buying because we see what other people have or what kind of they're using for their live streaming setup. Now to your point jim. I mean when you buy equipment you know. It's it's an asset appreciable asset. So it's like buying a car. For example you buy it and then it's gonna depreciate over time so for example if you bought that thousand dollar camera over time you know it's going to pretty much worthless it's going to be you've got time working against it and you also have the technology as well because technology changes extremely rapidly. You know it changes so quickly that that you know to the point where you buy something in like maybe in a month it's outdated because every about every year there's always something new coming out so this might be. You know a good reason why you should rent livestreaming gear so jim. Let's talk about just the various parts about renting equipment. I mean as you know. Yes people can go out and they can you know if they have. I think keating is like let's start with budget. I mean we rent. Why should somebody rent gear. I mean they definitely show up budget right. That's part of it absolutely. And i think and so. That's where renting right gives you that ability to you know it's like it's like a car taking a test drive you can try before you buy. I mean We're going to share some links a little bit later. Some of these places. You could rent Stuff for as little as three days. So you know be focused that you're going to actually you know you know 'cause how many times do we buy a new piece of equipment and then it sits there for a little bit before we start using it and so this kind of makes you think. Hey i if i if i'm serious about using this piece a year i'm actually going to you know. Take it out use it. Make sure it's it's doing what i think it can do or wanted to do. And so sometimes you're gonna find out that that's not what it is advertised that it would do isn't always what ends up being the case and it doesn't do what you were hoping for a one great example of this you know their cameras so when you're running a livestream you may want to use. Will you want to have a camera and a lot of people to start with the first option the webcam sorry the the built in webcam. And then when they're ready they're like hey i want another will just having. The webcam is not the only piece of equipment you need when you have for example if you're using a built in webcam you need a webcam you need lighting for example to then make that webcam look good and you know those webcams they can only do. So much so might be choppy because it's basically contingent on your computer so for example. If that's not good enough in your okay. I won't improve that. Well then i'm going to go to a webcam and actual external webcam extra webcams limitations. And then you go up another notch. If you're like hey want to. I want to be able to switch different things for example different cameras or i want to have different angles will a webcam can only do so much. Then you need to move into. Dsl are mirrorless camera and those then for example require more equipment to actually run the equipment. So it's it's a slippery slope once you start using different types of equipment. They're always going to be additional costs for example if you buy diesel our camera. Hey it's oh. I can just go buy one off the shelf. But here's the thing. It's not just about buying off the shelf. You then have to buy the right lens. Some of them include lenses which is great. But hey then we'll hey. How do i put this into my computer and that gets us into unietd capture card so as you can see it can quickly spiral out of control and so this is a really really really good reason why people need to consider renting livestreaming gear There's so much out there. And depending on what. Your setup is what your budget is you can easily go and drop immune if you wanted to buy just a basic camera. Six hundred dollars a camera. Two hundred dollars on a capture card to be able to plug the camera into your computer. So we're eight hundred dollars. Roughly right there Let's see what else you need. They need probably an audio interface or microphone. Sorry audio interface or mixer. So that's what one hundred one hundred fifty dollars till like five or six hundred dollars. That's really more bare minimum. So i think we're what that's probably around fifteen hundred sixteen hundred dollars right there and then. Hey i want improve my audio. I can go by mike for one hundred dollars but you know again then. I have to have a by the mike. Well then i have to have the armed. Attach it while the arm is another hundred. So you know you're at what That's that's over two thousand dollars right there. And that doesn't include the software so easily you've reached twenty five hundred three thousand dollars so some of the benefits obviously like to renting this gears. That will if you don't have the cash then. Maybe you rent a piece of equipment that you need. You know that you need and use it temporarily and you use it to film all of your videos at once and then you return the equipment versus. I dropped three thousand dollars. And then i have to actually spend the time learning it in also making sure that it works how i needed to work. You know. there's a whole process at it right job. Oh absolutely and then the other thing you may start to find an and it was funny. I was A guy guys said this the other day it's like if you have one dollar lighting and thousand dollar camera you've basic aren't going to have a one dollar camera because you didn't take into consideration the other stuff that you need to make that camera work right. You know. I mean sometimes like we have people that wanna have green screens. And they don't have the lighting and so they're backdrop actually looks worse than if they just had a plane wall behind them. And so you know reading this stuff can really give you a feel for like. Is this really. What's going to move the needle for me. I mean you know. We've always talked about getting better one percent of the time so this is a big deal when you kind of as you're when you when you've got gas you really gotta sometimes take a step back and really say. Is this really going to help my business. What's the plan behind it. And so you know and and and you may find that your space that you're live streaming from isn't really a set up in a way to properly use that gear right if you've got you know like i'm bringing in a second camera but now when you look at the lighting it's like oh my backdrop looks horrible. My walls not you know so maybe you want to improve the status of your studio before you go one by year but then even renting the gear will let you say oh. This isn't going to work quite like. I thought you know. Cut your. it really is a way to kind of. Cut your losses temporarily until you're ready to take that next step and there are a couple of different approaches. You can take this as i mentioned earlier. If you're you know if you're a type a person you're a planner and you've got everything ready like you know for example what your videos are going to film are and you've got them scripted out. It would make sense if you don't have all the equipment go and go to a rental place and we'll share some of those here and few minutes but go to a place that you can rent equipment from and tell them. Hey you know what this is. What i'm looking to do for the most part. They're going to know their stuff inside now and they're going to be able to also sort of give you a bit of a consultation they're gonna be able to recommend what might pair well

"If you spend two thousand dollars, you get a two thousand dollar credit if you spend another two thousand you get a five hundred dollar credit in other words in order to get a twenty five hundred dollar credit. You have to spend four thousand. So it's not really a one to one deal is it one to one deal for the first two grand, but not one to one for the full twenty five hundred bucks. And if you have money in a five twenty nine plan, and you withdraw money from the five twenty nine plan on a tax rebate basis. And you use that money to pay for college expenses. You can't also claim the credit in other words, you can't have both ways. Does that makes sense? So if you're going to spend twenty five hundred bucks, and you're gonna get the American opportunity tax credit. You can't use five twenty nine withdrawals in order to get that credit. It's complicated. No. So I didn't tell you what expenses qualify. I didn't tell you the rules for how students qualify because it's cumbersome and detailed off Tom on a radio show to get into. It's all simply say this. If you want to see if any of this works for you because you've got it kinda, right? But not totally right. You should talk with a financial planner or your tax advisor. So if you have a child who you think one day is going to go to college. You need to give us a call triple eight plan RIC because we need to take a look exactly at how much money is your kid going to spend going to college. How much money is are you able to save at the moment on college? Should you be saving in a five twenty nine plan versus not, and I will simply give you this little shorthand answer. Lisa. Odds are very high that you should be saving in the five twenty nine. Even though this tax credit is available. Why because they're not mutually exclusive as we noticed you're going to spend a lot more than four thousand dollars a year on qualified expenses. So the American opportunity tax credit isn't going to solve the entire problem. Meaning you'll be able to make tax free withdrawals from the five twenty nine. And simultaneously us money outside of the five twenty nine in order to pay for some of those college expenses, especially since the tax credit is only good for the first four years of college. But the average student takes six years to get a degree. I know it's confusing and I'm sorry about that. But hey, ain't my fault blame congress..
