Mark Walters: The Left Is Going After Gun Manufacturers
"These gun makers are being thrown under the bus at this is a backdoor way to bring about a gun band. Let's get your take on that. Yeah, what's your referring to is the law that protects gun manufacturers from the criminal misuse of their products. And that law is the protection of lawful commerce in arms. We call that the PLC AA and what the left is always trying to do as they did in Connecticut with after newtown was they went after the manufacturer in this case, it was Remington, who was out of business. They were bankrupt. Remington didn't settle anything. Their insurance companies a total of four decided to walk away and not fight. And that left open what the left sees is, oh, we can do this in other states. They're attempting to do the same thing in Texas. Et cetera, but what they can't do is legislate around the Second Amendment. So what they're trying to do now is use the courts or activist courts to get around it each state has different laws. But the PLC AA, what that essentially does is you can not hold a firearms manufacturer responsible for the actions of a criminal. And we always resort back to the automobile. We do not hold Ford responsible because a drunk driver drove a Ford F one 50 into a minivan and killed a family. No one would even think of holding Ford responsible. We hold the driver responsible. And that's what has to happen in these gun cases. But this is more evidence of their hatred for our right to bear arms, our hatred for gun rights, that they would even attempt to do so. There is no equivalence whatsoever between the manufacturer of a firearm whose product was used unlawfully and the criminal themselves. We have to hold criminals responsible. And the court got it right up here in the brewing case to tie this together that we do not blame law abiding citizens who carry guns publicly for the actions of criminals, period. We're on solid footing here, although it's going to cost a lot of money to defend against these frivolous suits. But we will win. Freedom will always prevail in the long run. Carl, I believe that in my heart.

Mark Walters: Latest Gun Reform Will Do Nothing to Stop Crime
"And I see so many conservatives back down on this issue, hence 14 or 15 GOP senators, Mark Walters, your comment. Yeah, now you're talking about the quote unquote gun control bill that came out of the Senate. Ironic that we saw that bill passed within two days of the release of the New York case. What this did, why people are so upset about this. Why people in my circles are so upset about this gun rights activists is because we had senators in the Republican Party, corn and in particular and McConnell in particular who have now cracked the door open because and I want to put it in perspective for listeners without getting too complicated. I want to make this as simple as possible to understand because it really is basic. What you have here is not benign. It's not not sweeping gun control legislation. It is very sweeping because we have in here the red flag. Now it's not a federal red flag. It's a bribe to the states to incentivize the states by feeding them money to institute red flags, which are unconstitutional on their surface because in the United States, we do not make accusations against people and then take their things from them without due process of law. We can not add due process to a process that is unconstitutional to begin with. I hope that makes sense. Now, why did Murphy, who I believe pulled a brilliant political maneuver here, the Democrats did when they began quote unquote negotiating with Republicans about this bill, why did they pull off the two things they wanted were at the top of their wish list. A ban of firearms ownership under 21 and a quote unquote, assault weapons ban using their phrase liberally just because that's the way they phrased it in the media. So everybody understands what we're talking about. Why did they back off of those? Because these individuals know that this bill will do absolutely nothing.
Mark Walters: The 2nd Amendment Is 3-0 Against Anti-Gun Owners
"Because he ruled in our favor in the 2008 Heller case. He also in that decision Penn brilliantly by Scalia. But he also ruled in our favor in the 2010 subsequent case, the McDonald V Chicago case. And it's important to put this in context as we discuss the brewing case because the McDonald case was the Second Amendment foundation case brought against the city of Chicago and their handgun ban. And it was in that ruling in the McDonald case that found the Fourteenth Amendment protects the Second Amendment by incorporating it through the privileges and a privileges and immunities clause to the states as the rest of the Bill of Rights. So the New York case couldn't have even been brought or it might not have had if it were brought, it might not have been granted by the Supreme Court. And if it had, we might not have had the level of confidence in a victory without that Fourteenth Amendment, applicable to the states in the McDonald case. I know this gets a little confusing, but it's all tied together and thank God Thomas got the decision and thank God we waited, albeit 12 years for this particular case because it was as strong as the day is long. And the decision was actually better than we had anticipated. Our concern Carl, you and I talked about it on previous shows was we expect a victory, but how wide of a victory. And Thomas cast a net very wide. The Second Amendment is three and O against the anti gunners. We are on solid ground.
Mark Walters: Confident Thomas Would Favor Gun Owners in NY Case
"The Bruin case. How enormous was this decision? And how much do you have to love justice clarence Thomas? And it's right. Oh my gosh. Let me start with this. Clarence Thomas is the individual that we had hoped would be able to write this decision. We anticipated a majority victory here of 6 three. We anticipated that. We have felt that Roberts may be a little wishy washy, which is why the court didn't take a case over the last ten years. Now that the court thank God for Donald Trump has a conservative majority, we felt very confident that Roberts would rule our way in this New York
Mark Walters: Dems Are Publicly Printing the Names of Gun Owners
"Me just talk to you real quick about this. This broke overnight or at least last night, California gun owners, data breach after state unveils a firearms portal knowing you. I know you know about this story. So talk to us about that a little bit before we get into some of the other topics. Yeah, it was actually the armed American news page that we own that broke that story. They did great work. But here we have, this takes me back, Carl, several years to the Cleveland plain dealer. Many years ago, that began publishing because of their hatred of firearms rights in Ohio and Ohio was passing its concealed carry weapons law. They began printing the names in the newspaper of every Ohio citizen that had a permit so that their friends and neighbors can see who had guns near them. And now we see this happening. So this is not unusual that the Democrats will do this because they so hate the right to keep and bear arms. Is it a leak? A little bit leak is the right word to use. This was intentional. No question about it. So yeah, leak may very well be the right word to use. But when the account when the California attorney general puts this out publicly to shame gun owners because of the state loss because of the New York brewing case, we see the level of hatred that the Democrats push when it comes to our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. They simply don't like it. It doesn't fit their agenda of civilian disarmament and God forbid civilians have the right to keep and bear arms. We're now going to let everybody know who has a concealed weapons license, which leaves these people, Carl, open for identity theft, open for theft, open for burglaries at their home. Robberies, et cetera. So it's a mess, but we expect this kind of activity from the Democrats. They hate us.

Is the Republican Wave Building Fast?
"Which means the business of the house. It goes nomos. Where is my article here? Yes, there it is. By Chris Solis, the Republican wave is building fast. With just over 5 months before the 2022 midterm elections use, that's where they're wrong. It's not 5 months voting begins in four months, actually. Since we have voting month in America, it's kind of this perpetual voting season. On Thursday, the cook political report, Amy Walter, a nonpartisan handicapping service, moved ten of its house races in favor of Republicans and adjust that its GOP gains in the fall upward between 20 to 20 to 35 seats. Given that Biden's approval rating is underwater and dozens of districts he carried in 2022, any Democrat sitting in a single digit Biden seat or Trump seat is that severe risk and even a few seats and that Biden carried by ten or 15 points could lose. Crystal is a rights at CNN dot com, the confluence of these predictions are built on several historical trends that have been predictive over decades. The first is that midterm elections tend to be bad for the president's party. Since World War II, the average seat loss for a president's party in the midterms of 26, I think Republicans are going to far exceed that. The generic ballot tends to favor Democrats, marginally in a neutral political year. A recent poll from quinnipiac, university should Republicans, they four point edge on the generic ballot. The reality of this current political moment is that things appear to be getting worse for Democrats, the closer we get to the election, fears of a wave washing away even incumbents previously considered safe, now seems entirely justified. CNN is trying to warn people what we have seen Bill throughout this entire year. Joe Biden thinks it's just

"walters" Discussed on Eureka by Baron Fig
"Just like don't have them on my phone. Because i've realized that i'm gonna lose the battle ten nine times at a ten and it's not worth one time at a time that i get it and i'm really hopeful that over the next decade we are going to build a healthier relationship with our phones. Because i think we've gone way too far to the extreme in the last few years and yeah yeah what. I think that that mentality is something that will serve us for all technology that is to comrades so like a again. It's you know you're right. There's the the most talented engineers working to keep us addicted to these things but at the same time to there's the onus is on us to to to develop that healthy relationships right like so we can if we can take that responsibility than i mean. We'll we'll win as other things. Continue to evolve in whatnot rights sub. Yeah for sure and like listen. They're also built like you said they're they're built into phones out to like screen. Time is great. Like i generally just like turn do. Do not disturb from like ten pm until seven thirty or eight. Am in the morning. So that when. I tried to open my phone. I am immediately reminded to just put it back down and i think again i think as we as customers demand a healthier relationship tools are going to get built to serve us because at the end of the day like we need to. Yeah i think everything. Everything's really demand driven in that way. Yeah oh man well this. This was super fun. I mean i'm really really digging the whole idea of like the long-form Ide- shen practice. I'm gonna. I'm gonna bring that to our team as well and see what we can do that. I think it's a mirror. That's an amazing thing. And and it takes. It takes a lot of time to do one well. And so i think that's the brilliant piece of it is like you wanna have lots of good ideas like i have will. I have lots of ideas all the time. Rarely do i have a good one. When i have a little a little barrier in front of me that says okay like if ideas really good you need to go through the time and energy to get it on paper and iron ironed out and find the data to back it up. You're just creating a funnel that ensures that only the good ideas really come out of it and so it's a great. It's a great mechanism to screen out all the bad ideas that we have and yet try to try to spend our time and energy doubling down an investing in the good ones will analyze. There's a lot of You know independent creatives freelancers and whatnot. That listen to this show like the thing. I like about the practice. Is we've been talking from a standpoint of the team in presenting new ideas like that. But i mean this up really works in in all situations right like again. Like if you're creating a list of all these ideas in your. I don't know a freelance photographer. And you're thinking of this new project or something. It's probably worth that time. Sure and map it out and take two three pages as the standard exactly. Yeah all every time now. When i'm brainstorming ideas with france. I always say like this is how we're going to do it if we think it's good enough. Let's let's throw down on paper. So yeah yeah that's cool around what's one thing you you know you've been thinking about lately or that's been on your mind or something that you think we should be thinking about You know it doesn't have to be at athene related to what we talked about but just like leave us with a thought or a an idea that floating around in your mind. Get the juices flowing. Yeah so the quote that i heard. Recently i think it's confucius anyways says that. Yes it is computers. So it's it's her we have two lives and the second begins when we realize we only have one nice and so i just love that quote because i think i'm at least moving onto the next stage of my life and thinking about kids and and all of those things and i just wanna to make sure that you always have in the back of your mind that like hey like you got one life like low live at the way you want to and yeah and so. I think it's a hard thing to do because of for me. It's it's the timeline piece of it is like when you compromise a little bit of the short term to sort of achieve longer term goals vs when you're always just like achieving eric. Doing exactly what you wanna do when you wanna do it and just finding that balance is a really tough one. But i just love that quote and it resonates. That's beautiful beautiful way to add to wrap this up that that is wrapped. So thank you so much for joining us. Ben were kin listeners. Connect with you yeah. That's a good question. I would say like emails. A good one ben hopper dot com pretty easy and you can find me on linked in. I'm not great at responding to messages but can find me at lincoln. Ben walters.

"I'm here with ben. Walters entrepreneur gm head of strategic partnerships at hopper. Ben thanks for joining pleasure to have you. Oh my pleasure markets. It's always a basket and chat and this time we'll have a record it. What's the difference. Yeah exactly that's always the benefit of these shows I mean there's so many different areas where we can go. But i figured just for people that may not know what hopper. Why don't you just give a quick breakdown on on what the company is all about and then we can jump into that lovely mind yards per sure yes so hopper at its core is a travel app. So you go onto hopper. We help you with the trip. Planning process and our goal is always to help customers and traveler. Save money and you can book. Flights hotels rental cars all directly through their mobile app or actually mobile only today. Meaning you can't book with hopper on the web which was a conscious decision. Our ceo took six years ago when we built which was pretty crazy to do back then but now is looking like a better better decision as we really just like optimize for this one channel but the truth is that cool part about hopper is that we always. I always describe us as more and amalgamated a bunch of different little startups than it is like a three hundred person company and so calling us just a travel app is just selling a short in so many ways because we really had teams working on so many different things and so my team hopper cloud is we're calling ourselves is really the b. to b. initiative and thinking about how we can add value to both travel companies as well as companies that have large audiences that want to book travel to be able to book. Travel smarter save money and make that s see must experience. So that's hopper. Yeah it's cool. I mean i've personally used it In the past and you get kind of addicted to checking in with hoffer to on it. I mean it's so well done in the sense of like okay. This is the window or the predicted window when you should buck. And why don't you just like briefly. Just visualize what it's all about. Then i'll move on from that. I know course check it out. Yes so we originally a came into popularity because of our ability to predict the price of flights. And so what we can do is we can predict the future price of a flight with ninety six percent accuracy. And so. that's not telling you how much it is to book on any given day. It's telling you when the best time to book actually is and so what that looks like when you go drop into the hopper app you perform a search. Let's say you're on toronto. To new york city and it says it's two hundred and fifty dollars. We've got a bunch of a in the background that will look at what's going to happen to the price that flight and we will very often tell you. Hey you know what the price is going to go down in the future so set up what we call a wash notification we will notify you when the price hits a floor that it is worth buying and so you set up a notification. We notify you in two weeks. Say hey the price dropped to twenty. This is a great price. Go ahead and buy and what we're doing now is building some really cool financial services products on top of that data set and so in many ways. We're more of a fintech company today than we are a travel company because of our focus on really limited price volatility and in providing peace of mind to travelers. And so if you can imagine one of the really cool things we're working on right now. Which is going to be called time-warp is instead of just notifying you of when you buy in the future. Why don't we just sell you that price today. That doesn't actually exist so very soon in the future you'll pop into the hopper app. You'll search toronto new york. It will be two hundred and fifty dollars. We'll say you know what we see a better price coming in the future by it. Now for two fifteen through hopper and we will actually just go ahead and automatically ticket that when the price drops and if not we'll take on the the financial risk. Whoa yeah that's cool. Yeah really cool. Words cited about that one. And there's a lot of really cool things. We're doing the.

"Walters, your husband's company. Good morning. Good morning to our next guest who is a candidate for lieutenant governor in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Head of the Republican Convention set to take place tomorrow. Winston Serious joins us. Good morning wisdom. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning, so good to be on your show. It's really great to have you with us. I I'm interested in I I see that you Virginia pilot quotes you as saying that you think that there are some politicians specifically in Virginia that benefit when citizens are at each other's throats that they're crewing political power unto themselves by making people fight With one another. How would you be different? Should you become the lieutenant governor? Because that's not the way I roll. I am trying to be a true servant leader. You know, I'm from Jamaica and I see what happens when people get power and too much power. When I was in office because I am the first black Republican woman ever elected to the General Assembly, and so I tried to be a servant leader. I tried toe ensure that the citizens Of the 90th district, which I represented parts of Chesapeake, Norfolk and Virginia Beach. I wanted them to understand that the power that I had comes from them. That they have the power. The seat does not belong to me, and when I'm no longer there that they should always demand of their leaders through servant leadership, So that's what I modeled when I was there. As we've been talking to different candidates throughout this process leading up to the GOP convention tomorrow, lot of we've had a lot of discussions about schools, but you are very specific. You want school choice in Virginia as a way to combat this indoctrination, give parents a choice. So instead of having to constantly fight and have these kids subjected to things that they don't want you said, give them the choice. How would you do that in Virginia? Yeah, you know, um, one of the things that the Democrats like to tell us is that they love everybody more than the Republicans ever could. And yet, what I see from them. Their love is poisonous. For example, you see what's happening at Thomas Jefferson High School where 73% of the population of that school is Asian, and so instead of us asking What are the Asian parents doing? What air the Asian kids doing that causes them to be selling so much? No. Instead where, Uh, we're dumbing down by saying we're going to keep some of these kids out these Asian kids. And then we're gonna institute quotas so that we can bring other kids in. And so we think that this is going to make everything better. So I'm saying if we had had full choice Then all of this nonsense would have gone away because you see, the parents would have been able to decide, especially those who don't have the resource is would have been able to decide. I'm going to take my kids somewhere else. I'm going to take the money. Somewhere else so that they don't have to be subjected to this nonsense And so they can excel in life. And it's the same thing with critical race theory. You know, I was vice president of the State Board of Education and Let me tell you something. The kids weren't learning. Then they're not learning now, and they're really not learning now because of province. And we already know. For example, in Fairfax, Our kids are failing. I can tell you in Chesterfield, one out of six high school students are failing. They're just failing all around, and so You know this cove, it is so is so smart. It does not affect private schools, apparently because private schools have been open five days a week all year long. So there's something wrong there and we need to be able to have the money. Follow the child instead of the money being given to the brick building over there. Yeah, maybe with those private schools Cove it is on the waiting list. Just like everybody else I can't get. It s so winsome steers. I want to ask you about your running for lieutenant governor. I wanna ask you about the current lieutenant governor, Justin Fairfax. You know he's running for governor. He made some news recently when he compared himself to George Floyd and Emmett till during a Democrat gubernatorial debate, suggesting that several women who had accused him of sexual assault on that made him basically the same as Emmett Till as as a black woman hearing this What did you think of Justin Fairfax taking that position? Please, please. What you're hearing is a drowning man who was trying to save his political career. And you know you ought to be making those choices before you take certain actions not trying to associate yourself with through injustice. And many of us black. Uh people were very much offended by it, whether we're Republicans or Democrats. He needs to go home and figure out what he's going to do with his life because of decisions that he's made. And you know, and stop this trying to curry favor. We don't want that kind of leadership here. We've already had black face. Um North, um, with his incident and fantasized views, and we've already had blackface, Harry. They all need to go home and figure out the choices of May. We need some different leadership here. This critical race theory, for example. That their past that they have passed and which is now supposedly to help people who look like me. US black folks, You know, it's It's a farce. The kids aren't learning. Do we really have time to teach reading? Writing and racism? You know China is going to eat our lunch, Vince. It is going to they're going to either life. They are scheduled China to be the number one superpower in 2030. Do you know they have more honor students than we even have students and we have to have time to teach. That all white kids and all white people are bad and everybody else is good. What is that going to do for the morale in the school? You know you just you brought up the three R's and I was so interesting. They've suddenly changed to reading writing and racism. You're totally right. Thank you. Winston Sears. Good luck this weekend, a part of that GOP convention running for lieutenant. Governor. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you. Thank you. All right, 6 44.

But the rest are kinda like hard to describe. They were kinda like experimental tracks. They weren't really big. That's why i'm shocked. This is my biggest song.

I have no idea why. Because i feel like there's other lines of for some reason. Every time someone sends me a snapchat or something. They always type in that. That line quote it's hilarious. An eye catching. Yeah that at line. Just stucco. But i mean the song so the beat was a youtube beat and it was my someone that i actually knew so i told him the. Send me the beat in. I wrote the song pretty quick but it wasn't actually laid out yet because it had no a hook but i still recorded it in an actually sat for a few months. And then i spent it to my buddy Mixed the track. And then i said could you know so. I sent him a bunch of lyrics that stood out to me.

"Bap style. Happy walters is a noted music producer with years of noise in the industry. This breakout Abused his house on the beats welcome. Happy while sir. Thank you for joining our pod. You're coming out of the hood of saint paul minnesota talk about that Basically i was born and raised all over. So i was born on the east side raised on the west side and then settled on the south end. So i think that's what also kept me out of trouble too because i wasn't settled into one place. Psychologists bounced bounced around all around saint. Paul and harold happen I think it was just moving around like wait one time growing up. We didn't have a place to live so we had to move in with my grandma over on the west side so we were over there for about two and a half years. And that's actually where my dad's from so it was easy to move but then we ended up settling on the south end witches not a bad area but it's definitely not the best background music. You started quite young. Did you not. Yeah my dad is actually a drummer. He's traveled all over the world. I think call him. Uso tours right. But they're called. The heat did a lot of though is like before. I was born in when i was born so i grew up around music like an music musicians my entire life which is weird that i never joined a band. It was weird. So you've always been a solo. Act your always been solo. Never joined the group or anything. I remember getting offers to join hip hop groups now like now thing while the music do you put standing. I really liked kipp so i. I don't question your desire to stay as award as primarily isn't artists. Have you worked in minnesota. Us and then is what like in. The reason why. I started posting music. Online as far as beads is wanted to branch out. Because i wasn't able to leave like money wise. So i figured i'm just gonna try and get my music out in a lot less so i started posted beats and that's how my name dot known. I actually went under a different name too. So i was known as somebody else in that i started posing beats online and my music kinda just took off but no one knew me as rapper though they just knew me as a producer and i have worked here. But it's kind of like one of those things where i feel like minnesota is a place where you make it out. You don't really make a lot of artists like there's well known singers who literally are known here land. Everyone knows who they are performed. Probably six seven days a week but outside of minnesota now one knows who they are. So i kind of wanted to be the one to like breakout. Kinda kinda like prince teflon seventy follow after have worked in la yes. I'm worked with numerous numerous emcees. Jay gatsby a band called that kid is you 'cause i actually when it comes to produce it's mainly hip hop bye also to write to like i just like to write. I'll work with anybody as like any genre. Do secrets jar on as far as producing an like as far as my own music. Yeah but as far as writing. I do wanna work with different artists. Just just to expand my writing. How do you find these are defined them online incident local seen on c. It's all online. Like i was never a huge scotia media person just because i'm older but honestly it's like the best thing like i've connected with so many many people like there's a singer in the uk. Just young. that. I'm gonna be working. It's just been hard because of the seven hour time difference. He's really good and found me and was sharing all my stuff in so we've been trying to set a date in plan where we can actually work on stuff but it's just been hard because of the time difference time zones do mix up things and what does she put on. It's like euro pop that's popular the uk. Yes she's actually really well known and and that's why would shock because she sent me a dm house like who is this like. I thought she was fake. I wasn't sure if she was she was a real person or not as as yeah I tried to reach out to him. The lead singer him and i actually have a single out. It's called bad medicine. It was kind of an experimental track but the lead singer yet The right now all the venues are closed here so they're not really doing anything and i'm not sure if they're working on their next album or not. I'm still waiting on him to respond to my text to be arena. Career took took a bit of a break. Me that athens. Yeah so. I put out a mixed. Fda nineteen in it light just took off here and then years later i met a girl and then i settled down in. That was a six year layoff of literally. No music being made it was horrible. Is the worst and sal Low ask you basically told me it was weird because i was making a living off of it but i don't know if it was her family. Whatever because they basically had no idea. Like what i did if it was a real job and stuff like that so she talked me into quitting in getting a nine to five and basically about five and a half six years. There was zero music Except for the one time. I snuck off to la a snug. So la derating stories in her so she wanted to hang out or we had plans to do something i said. No i have a family thing.

Whenever I get child's I like him? He's down to Earth these coats. You can't put your finger on one guy that think. I mean obviously with the Timmy. But for me they will different. You know lyles was cool. You know and that it was good that year. I don't remember not particularly we. WE WE WANNA rice and you know we were in podiums. Most weekends top volleys reading. It was good but not what he was. Used to You know he was coming back from podium most weekends but he was he was fun to hang out with you. I'm with you guys. Were just having a ball to buddies. Yeah we were just under we will just winging it really it. Who's the best guy you who's the best guy that you've been around as a either on your team or or you know you've sponsored Smith or whatever else that maybe doesn't get enough press or doesn't get talked about as much memorial memorial didn't make you Donna? Brian Kepa talented. You know he was you know. How did Brian come out with what he did? and Lemoyne came out with more eight. It just doesn't make any centrating because I'll skill. That wasn't much between no no. You're absolutely right. There's not many people who would have picked Dungy Villa Polaroid to have the success. They did back in the the next not having. Not when you're trying to pick on these kids to to try and pick like why I wouldn't thought Ghana's Pasi runoff drivers but he's Hog lucky. Yeah Yup Super Nice Kid Not Team Wilson.

Most the best bike you've worked on a rain on one twenty. Five's my favorite the the big bar. Now the four that was because we were beaten the big dogs would be you know it was a factory Lewke gotten along but the thing was special. I think that year the same year that Mike Craig for sure I had a big bore. And we're only race motor lawn. You've never as Motoo diddy. Yeah there was like top five or top eight in motor one. Never show for Moto two. And you're like why is that and then I found out. Yeah it was a big. Yeah we we had a problem at high point. Buck stopped him. This is my first experience of working with the factory team. They wouldn't let me go and get at the back they send somebody else again. Get it back and I take it upon. I send the engineer just without even saying it knew what gone wrong. I didn't know you and the little pen start living from turning around and come out. Oh yeah and from then on. They said New Piston. Every race has sat on the bike. That new new piston new radio new clutch. I'll I think I remember a few times between Moto seeing your top end off and what what's what's going on every time you've read the book. Yeah and also then he got to the point where he only one shock. Yup We had tons of shocks but Ian not one of them so we take the shock. Aw and Scotland Service in the back of the truck in the suit up on while I was doing the top end so we can have that same shock again Larry Award Moat Movement. I think so. Yeah I mean these guys they get happy with stuff and you got to do what you can. But you know when you're changing AIDS and clutches and top hand and front and rear wheels. I SP- asset graphics.

Of course o'mara beats them Majoria an MSA. The break I get that similar tried another five hundred on that thing with no real break and we'll take anybody from Johnny Johnny. Of course. Yeah No of course and I never felt like Thorpe. Four status never got to be as high ever again because of her world's fastest amateur. Yeah Yeah I do too few in England England and you grew up.

All I come from last to first and just watch the crowd like a wave around the track where every us and you know we all stood at the back of the truck trying to get glimpses that with the the white gloves armed and behind him with a pit bull is that moment. I'm not that's all I wanna do and I was done. It's arrived at that point. I wanted to be a mechanic and and so I've got up most spectrum.

There's no there's a gearbox shaft in but nothing else no clutch no crank piston. The ENQUIRER'S IRIS TURNS OUT COLLECT THE GUY walked out with a few occasions. Bought the eighty six and he he called me up you can build it runs again really It might be so you know all that stuff within Europe somewhere else or not digging around and we managed to get the thing done in over the years. The the box been on loan so many times there was no detainee in boats less than it so we have to make a bunch of those. It was a lot of work but it was pretty cool to see that you know and eh and it's not a matter what production stuff would fit anything. Nothing went pretty much crazy. The insane and there was no work sparks in America in eighty six. Either this was. This was one of four insanely trip yet. Insane killed him. Good thing is whenever you through these bonds people always going to be. Somebody says that's not the way bang you'll find. You got these guys that look at photographs than this.

There's no spark we can't get it to spark walk the guy who works for makeup and he persevered impersonated infanticide. We spoke fired up so yeah I'm not sure if that was luck over that was just bloodymindedness to get the thing started and we put a little video on facebook and I think Scotland half a million visa. Something realistic I ride in Farley or so now the guy's collective and he we were GONNA do a test. That's why I was waiting. I've got all the photographs of it in bits I can. I can ride up the story but we will wait in on the guy to get out and test it with open. That's just never happened so maybe I can make some colts range attest with the same guy with the the poor Malin. Sr Five. I'm GONNA just bill. Yeah Yeah you show me some photos of that at at pro circuit so this is a perimeter frame kegs. Five hundred mail-in and Dan Thorp wrote them Berry one or two years.

Actually I had to think about his real name when I was doing the beginning of this podcast because everybody knows them as wasps or doc law but whatever He's an English guy He was mechanic over here for a long time. I used to run into him at the races. Obviously and he's done a nice secondary career building. Motorcycles Do supplying at the vet motorcross nations getting his hands on some real real cool stuff over the years and now he's got this titanium business that he's promoting as well and I think more and more teams over here are going to be using it for sure. It's it's good quality stuff so I had to find out his name. I had to Google his name. And as you find out here in this podcast because I was like wait. What's his name because it's just wobbles or WOP's everybody knows right but you'll find out as you listen to this podcast where I'm like? Hey even get his name wrong so Thanks for listening.

That's the penguin. Batman right and randomly I ran into you at pro circuit the other day. That's hilarious. You come over come over to the US here and there used to come every six months. What business is basically I bought a lot of clarence stock? Vanya mine stuff and are you. She bought a bunch of stuff out of say but to be honest most of its abort most the good stuff now serve so I think good there for a while because Mitch is a hold on you know that stuff sitting back laughing. The nineties last game I know right right and it it's crazy. How much stuff is growing and getting bigger? And I don't know how much everyone's rated Mitch's thing by now so but let's say so. I guess one of the things more into and we'll get into your career. You work for Renard you work for. A bunch of people superlight technologies your newest thing thing titanium bowl to supply a lot of teams with their bolts on their hardware he worked on the US market. How's that going really good? I started doing it. Basically when the exchange right term Bob for us a couple of years ago and I was coming over here for containers for bikes and it just got to the point where I couldn't couldn't just there's no point in doing it on whenever we're building bunks if you buy the stuff I always look to get made a good friend of mine. Who Does Formula One the fastness. I went to him saw tolkien. UNLV told me Pretty quick and he told me about the grades and the processes awesome materials. Now I started source of suppliers against Megan of samples together. It's work on lots of money. Didn't think I think it would cost this much. It's we're doing really good moment. Yeah cool good to hear Yeah Vo Yamaha just went from being like a privately funded armed Yamaha Saddam to be in the full factory dealer. Now we've been a food as factory supplier. So that's a big thing for US district staff out. Yeah absolutely early nuts get good too good to see. US teams if people are listening or people you can contact wasps on his website. DOC DOT COM. It's good pricing thing to like compared to tie. Because I've been buying tie for some of these finished bikes that I've been building and of course I use it for many years on many teams and your your pricings good good. We're trying to get it down still crazy expensive. My target is under a thousand bucks. But that's true even hard with the more stuff we make. The mobile will the Modern box not just m sect's might bounce anymore most thus shoulder special shea a knows those catch you out 'cause that really expensive to make you order those by the hundred the regular about three thousand. Yeah you know it's funny. You're right WHOA. I got four fifty and you look at the bolts that like apparently back in the day like Yamaha if a bolt doesn't need to be an eight or ten like seatbelt and aside panel bolt and this an exhaust bolt are all different lengths and sizes. And I think years ago they used to be all the same. You know looking at that. You know that used to be just a boat with aluminum machine washer now they will in code. But it's when you actually take a Yamaha for example you know Yemen has got six belts the referendum just so much to do then once you start dealing with the teams. They weren't different stuff which is cold because because you know we do the bolts for the extra months effectively. KTM clump. Yeah so we. We custom build kits for the teams torture I quit wrench in a long time ago. You're still kind of doing it a little bit but you were you. Were you building these vintage bikes for the the. US guys but basically you were a mechanic for a long time and GP's and in America and you've moved on to the next stage in your career as at high. And I always tell people wall because I'm just like I would never go back to full time mechanic. You'd have to like kidnapped my family I guess and then make me do it. I don't know it's so much work back in the day while I think it was on my sound. Some dude telling these kids that. Go to ease the way they just weren't reliable. You know then they take a lot of work eh softball crazy now. Take Stock 456 suspension on a pipe bomb you go. Yeah Yup I was building. You know. Take four hours to build L.. Device Bike Justin stuff and it just seemed to be a lot more work and of course when I was them. You know in the Box van days and you weren't just wrenching engine on stuff. You were building motors. You were driving. The truck could be three or four days. No Grocery shopping. Yeah exactly organizing parts. You know luckily suspension guy wasn't doing that myself but you know I was building Wales and yeah just doing everything. I don't think a lot of these guys do that. Much Chen million. You look back on your career and sometimes thing what was I thinking I wouldn't change. I I know right. I think you're you're a little bit like me. Where like we're foreigners we're in America? This is the big dream and we don't have any family are real friends outside of the people at the racist so why not just work our balls off. That was well. That's that's kind of where the foul guys benefit. Because there's no distractions Fitschen you out because you were up to laval you got nothing better to do the hang out the show. So that's kind of what you do. So farley castle vet. Those nations has been ten years fifteen years ago. And it's about Yeah I've done it ten years. It's it's a looks like a phenomenal event.

"walters" Discussed on Daily Sales Tips
"You're listening to the daily sales tips podcast. And I'm your host Scott Ingram this week. We're celebrating International Women's Day and women in sales with all women all week. Today's tip comes from my friends, Kristy Walters. Here's what she has to share with us today. This is Kristie Walters. Co hosted the Y in the by podcast, and my daily sales to pre you is don't be a know it all I will admit I am a reformed. No at all. And yes, all of my childhood, friends and family can stop laughing right now. I always felt like I needed just a little bit more information. One more certification one more example of how to handle a specific objection. I just started a new job. And I think some of my colleagues are wondering. Wow. When will she stop asking questions? I'm always throwing out the what if scenario, and it's interesting for me, especially. Really now starting a new role. How deeply rooted that need to be a know it all or that need to show my worse by showcasing my knowledge really is. And I suspect a lot of you out there experiencing the same thing. How often have you hesitated to make a phone call or over prepped for a meeting just in order to make sure that you had one more piece of information? And I want to be careful here. I am not suggesting that you don't prepare in advance for your meetings. You absolutely prepare in advance for your meetings. You need to do the work to ensure you have the right foundation to support your customer effectively. What you don't need to do. However is walk in with all the answers if you are in any level of. Complex sale. The last thing your customer wants to feel is that you were the one stop shop like that. You are the individual who has all the answers. And there's no one else behind you. Sometimes not having the answer, and showcasing that you can pull a team together to provide the right level of support for your customer goes way farther than anything you could have done on your own. It shows the depth of your organization, it shows that if something were to happen to you or you were indisposed that your client would not just be sitting out waiting for you to come back with the right answer. Too often as sales people, we get closer to our clients and shut everyone else out that doesn't serve you. And it certainly doesn't serve your customer. So how do you not be a know it all how do you become comfortable with walking into an environment? And not having all the answers. And I think for me it has always been. About asking those clarifying questions. Sometimes even when you do have all the answers asking those clarifying questions allowing time for those questions and answers to marinate, meaning not being pressed always provide every answer with it within the meeting timeframe. And then just being fierce with your follow up. Not allowing time to drag on while you go and find those answers. But the secret sauce is is connecting those clarifying questions with what your client what your customer objectives are. So that's my daily sales tip. Don't be a know it all and go out and sell something. And remember, we know you're y your housing your what's get much better. That's it for my daily sales tip. Don't be a know it all asked the clarifying questions. And remember you have a team of people behind you to support your efforts with your customer. Thanks so much. There's a lot of great stuff in this single idea from Christie have you suffered from no it always him before. I'm definitely pleading guilty to elements of this one lots to think about and talk about here. So join our conversation at daily sales dot tips forward slash forty six there. You'll find links to all things Kristie Walters, including her the why and the by podcast, then come back tomorrow for another great sales tip from another incredible woman in sales.
