I'm i'm as somebody who is a luminary ao space. You do not need a big introduction with my audience. I don't imagine but you are perhaps best known. As former editor in chief of cio magazine the the moderator of the cio leadership live broadcast which is just a phenomenal phenomenal series of interviews with with leaders in the tech space x os with a healthy dose of course of chief information officers as the name suggests and a prolific writer. Somebody who's wisdom. I know my team. And i have have gained mightily from across the years as well so i'm so pleased to to have this more formal conversation after many many informal ones with you okay. Well thanks very much peter. I we've got a lot of great stuff to talk about indeed indeed wipe. We begin at the beginning at least as relevant to the cio space. You're not somebody who grew up with immersed in technology You are somebody who The written word came the more easily to the dentist too many others. Perhaps and and you were focused on journalism. I wonder what was what was the genesis of your time In focusing your skills on the cio. Space okay thanks. Exxon question and i love telling the story because i think that it reflects so much of how many of the it leaders cio's that we both know today ended up in the positions that you know they were music majors or they majored in english literature and history and then they got really interested in data side of things for me. I had started out. I spent ten years at daily newspapers. In florida and ohio in washington state and i reported on everything from city and county commission beats to k twelve education to police even state politics when i was two bureau chief for gannett news service out in columbus ohio and then we were moving to the boston area in nineteen eighty nine. My husband was an atmospheric scientist and he was taking a job in cambridge and so naturally i went reached out to the boston globe and to the boston herald and the it was. Nobody was hiring. So i was. We were arriving in the boston area. And i had heard about a very vibrant technology publishing world here and so i had examined it somewhat and made some phone calls A lot of this was so far before the days of regular emails. And you know we weren't living on our phones. Then so i was just applying my reporter skills to it. And i ended up getting a copy of computerworld mailed to me and sat there. I remember sitting there in my living room in ohio looking through it and feeling somewhat reassured that i could understand about what have the stories were about And then on the drive from ohio to massachusetts. I basically grill my husband One side down the other about the computer industry. Because i was coming into it only knowing that ibm made typewriters and the rest of it was kind of a big mystery. But i had been using some of the very early unix. That was vi editor on unix. That you could use to do work on. He had some sun workstations and very early versions of sun and unix workstations at our house and so i used that a little bit. And i remember when i was in my interview for the computer job with The executive and executive editor in the editor chiefs of computerworld. I think they were very impressed. That i was referring to things like vi editor in youth so but computerworld at always hired. They hired reporters who could learn the beat. And i think that's pretty much the way almost everybody on the tech journalism side got into it. They were journalists bite training. Then they do. They dove into their beats. Because one of the things we discovered trying to hire people over the years if you try to higher in a technical person and hand the technology beat they wouldn't know the story angle with fell on them so it was really important if you were genuinely out there reporting And then i found enjoyed it. I just enjoyed it so much and by the time i was a couple years into my job at computer world when the boston globe was to interview people and hire all. But i wouldn't left for anything at that point it just it was such a. I just enjoyed the way. The story kept changing and advancing and moving forward.

"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are all ready asking. Don't today show. I want to share three things with you. Just three and here they are. I won't answer the question. Hopefully definitively how do you use post nine eleven. Gi bill number two. I will share with you how to maximize post nine. Eleven bill benefits and finally. I will tell you how you can buy side eleven. Gi bill benefits with another amazing benefits. That you've earned the most notable programs if you're interested in hearing more about that which i have to assume you are stay tuned and you are going to hear every single bit. Stay with us. Who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover you. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to play. I walked through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis often crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here to earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself. So i wrote a book simply titled resolve resolve is a book that is apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com so today's question surrounds the post nine eleven. Gi bill as no doubt. You've figured out by now and specifically how you use it but the truth is if that was the only question i answered on today's show who would be a very short episode now using the post nine eleven. Gi bill is really really easy now. Of course. I want you to listen to this entire episode and if you do i have a special gift just for you toward the end of the episode. But i'll tell you right upfront. Using the post nine eleven she i bill is probably the easiest thing you will ever do when it comes to taking advantage of the benefits you've earned through your military service now before we dive in. I want to share some of my method with you kind of how we came to put this episode together posted a question on the courage to fight again facebook page. I shared that question on several veteran focused facebook groups and we got more engagement with this single question than with anything we've ever posted and the question was just this is what has been your experience with a post. Nine eleven jabil. We got over eleven hundred comments and i've read almost every single one of them and around ninety nine percent of those responses. Give or take. They were very positive in nature. Talking about how easy it was to us how it was the best benefit you can take advantage of and how to get the most out of the post nine eleven gi bill and not only did those who responded answer that question but they answered so many more as well man here. I am rolling right into the episode. And i haven't even introduced myself yet so if you were here for the first time you may be like. Who is this guy. Talking about. The post nine eleven. Gi bill well. My name is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and as you've probably already guessed on the host of this podcast so let's dive right in at the top of the show. I promise you three things. Let's tackle the first one. How do i use my post nine. Eleven gi bill. Now i'm going to assume you're already eligible for the gi bill. So i'm not going to dive into that part. But i will post a link in the show notes about your eligibility and how you can determine your eligibility in case you need to dig into that a bit more but step one is apply for the benefits on the va website. And guess what. I'll post that link in the show notes as well. You need a few things when you apply. Here's what you need your social security number your military history and that just basic military history. You don't need your full your your details of where you're stationed in when you were stationed there and all of that. He just need basically the years you serve and the date service egypt education history of the schools. You've attended other degrees. You hold things like that and finally basic information about the school or trading facility that you want to attend because you don't have to attend just a traditional community college or university or state scored like that. You can attend a variety of training facilities. Let's say you wanted to become an h vac technician. There are schools or training facilities that you can learn how to do that if you want to become a cybersecurity expert while their schools training facilities we can do that so again just some basic information about the school or the training facility that you want to attend now. You can do this by mail. Apply by mail using the va form or obviously the most preferred way is to apply online. That's going to be the fastest takes about thirty days or so for the va to verify eligibility. And that's it for step one. Step two you're just going to reach out to the school. the understanding. here's that you've already been accepted or you're well on your way to being accepted to the school. So you contact the school and request to speak to the va rep and these are your best friends in the post nine eleven gi bill business. Now i know i've heard some mixed reviews about. Va reps But they do know the school and they know the va. So they're going to be able to share some things with you. Some indepth information that you're not gonna be able to find him the va website. You're not gonna find on the school's website you're going to have to talk to them directly and step three. Follow the directions of your. Va school rep number. Four step four. Get your education. It's really that easy now. Look with nearly all things. Va there are multiple paths to get to the same destination but those steps has share with you apply online. Contact the school link with your. Va rep. That really is the simplest and most direct route to taking. Hold of your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits. So if i would have had just a single question for this episode. We'd already be done. But i promise you i would share with you and the next is really important and that is how to maximize your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits now. There are a bunch of ways to do this. And i'll mention those in passing and you can do your own homework and figure out if those are something you want or need to explore. But i want to focus on just two ways to maximize your benefit so your options. As far as maximizing your benefit goes find a yellow ribbon. School is one option tuition assistance. Top up that's another program that the va has. You may be eligible for you may need to look into There's also the option of a stem scholarship science technology engineering or math. If you're majoring in any of those categories you may be eligible for scholarship. Veteran education courses aka vet tech also tutorial assistance if you're struggling with biology or chemistry or calculus or whatever may be and you need a tutor to get tutorial assistance with the. Va actually pay you to go to a tutor. She can pass that course now here the two i want to talk about all the ones i just mentioned are in this section of the website that talks about the posting. I love jabil bill. But all the ones i mentioned in this section are in a section called additional information very simple and one of those is finding yo a yellow ribbon school. Excuse me and the second is not mentioned in that additional information but it is getting that monthly housing allowance and again. I'm going to dive into that but let's talk about the yellow ribbons school here for just a minute. So the yellow ribbon program can help you pay for hire out of state private school or graduate school tuition. That the post nine eleven. Gi bill does not cover so tuition might be higher than what the gi bill will cover or you want to attend a school as a nonresident student. Non resident of that state in other words. Another thing this is more of a side note. Not yellow ribbon schools specific. Your state may also provide additional benefits for you as a veteran. And that is something you should look into with your state. Truth be told your. Va rep at your chosen. School should be able to answer that question for you or at the very least be able to point you in the right direction. All right so that is the yellow ribbon school piece. I wanted to talk about and the other piece. That's not listed in additional information. section is section one. Oh seven sounds very boring but it's very very important. And that is the location based housing allowance the location based housing allowance. Now you will get a housing allowance for using the post nine eleven gi bill and if you attend all online classes this rate that it is set at is half the national average of an e five with dependence for their basic allowance for housing. So that doesn't change unless the national average changes. I know when i was taking a few online courses. It was eight hundred dollars a month. I don't remember the exact number but we're the location based housing allowance. Really comes into play is when you were attending in person classes. Now i want to set the record straight here then. There's this common misconception that your housing allowance rate is based on where you live. This is not the case. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you're attending classes. I'm going to say that again. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you are attending classes. Let me just share a little story from my own experience. I decided to take some undergraduate courses my undergraduate degree before went into the army. But i wanted to just take advantage of the post nine. Eleven she i built a little bit wasn't ready to work on my master's degree or anything so i was like you know what. Maybe i'll just take some courses. I know i have to take at least one of those in person. So i can get that in person Housing allowance right that location based housing loans. Well right up. The road from probably ten minutes or less away was a campus of the school. I was wanting to attend. They had multiple campuses all over the city and the housing allowance. Right there was. I don't know eight nine hundred dollars. Something like that. But if i would drive an extra seven or eight minutes i could get the location. Based housing allowance ended up being like eleven. Eleven sixty seven. Ninety i don't remember now. It's been a few years but i was like. Hey i will totally drive a few extra minutes to get the extra couple hundred dollars or so a month because to three hundred dollars a month because that just makes more sense because i want to get the same education and going to get the same course the same credit for the course. Why not just drive a few extra minutes so again. The housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you were attending classes. And i just mentioned this but keep in mind. You only need to attend a single class in person. that's it you can take the rest of your classes online and still collect the housing allowance based on the zip code of where you attending that one class. Now let's talk about kovic for a minute though we're we're still in the midst of this pandemic. I don't wanna say the middle. Hopefully we're nearing the end of it. But cova has missed a lot of things up our way of life our jobs our relationships a lot of things and it has changed the way a lot of schools do business and that is i'll say inadvertently affecting those of us trying to use the post nine eleven. Gi bill and some schools. They're not even holding in person. Classes yet and and veterans are facing this never before seen challenge and in fact. This was one of the concerns. someone maybe more than one person brought up when i ask about experiences with the post nine eleven. Gi bill. so. I just mentioned that you get paid at half the national average of an e five with dependence if you attend school all align. Let's say that's eight hundred dollars but if you attend at least one class in person you'll receive your housing allowance based on zip code of the school year attending so again when i attended in person. Who's eleven dollars a month so it made sense to at least attend one school. Excuse me or one class in person and this is where co vid really comes into play some schools. Excuse me some schools or universities that were previously holding in person. Classes do not even have the option to register for in person classes. Now which means that. If he veteran was attending in person in receiving that in-person housing allowance rate that housing allowance rate has suddenly changed to the online rate. And i've done a good bit of research into this. I have not found anything in my research for my conversations with veterans or anything social media no way to really get around this so to speak. So if you found a way to continue receiving the in-person housing allowance rate while attending only online due to covid. I would love if you would share that with us by reaching out to me at podcast at courage to fight again dot com. So i can send it out to the rest of our listeners. Finally and i'm really running low on time here but i promise three things at the top of the show how to use your gi bill. We cover that outta to maximize your gi bill. We cover that and now how to combine your gi bill benefits with another benefit. You may or may not have heard of and that benefit is vocational rehabilitation or volk rehab as it's often called now technically its known as veteran readiness and employment or vr and e but no one actually calls it that or at least not yet. It just hasn't a katelyn voc rehab. Though in fact is probably a better benefit than the post nine eleven. Gi bill pays for literally everything. You need special equipment for your degree. Plan pays for that. You have to pay for parking at your school. Pays for that. You'd pay for books pays for that pays for pretty much everything and just about anything you do that has to do with getting your education and i'm saying this because i want to reiterate it vo korea will pay for that and so it does seem at least initially to be a better benefit than the post nine eleven gi bill. But here's where you can. Combine them nate. Because you can't use them both at once you can use either one or the other because if you use vocal rehab or any it will cut into the total time you can use your gi bill. So here's the hack if you will if you use all thirty days of your post nine eleven gi bill and then apply for your vote rehab benefit. Frankly i'd opt for a bit more. Forty five sixty days. Something like that just to be on the safe side. But thirty days minimum is what i found volk rehab or vr knee or whatever. You want to call. It goes through a different process than the post nine eleven. Gi bill but leveraging these two benefits together is really the best of both worlds. And here's why. I say that because let's say you use just about all of your post nine eleven gi bill to get your bachelor's degree in psychology. But you wanna be a licensed professional counselor. Will you need at least a master's degree for that and you've used almost all of your jive. Ill what are you gonna do. Well then you go to your local. Vr knee or volk rehab counselor and say. Hey here's what i need to do. And then you move into the vote rehab program now again. Your mileage may vary. Because i've heard again a lot of mixed stories mixed reviews of working with folk rehab counselor but that is your process and again i will post a link to these processes or actually there's a few links but all these processes and all these resources in the show with that we have reached the end of season six episode. So what are your questions voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast kurds. Fight again dot com. So what's on your mind. What questions are you asking. What are your family members asking or join the post. Nine eleven veterans families facebook group and post your question. There have block of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accept the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ well. I'll see you right back here. Two weeks from the day and the next veteran questions we'll be asking is this. How do i increase my va. Disability rating ohio and for the special gift. I promised every thursday evening is hosting a sous vide for justice guys who are veterans. Sorry ladies you're coming soon. The training for that. We will be walking through the resolved journey. Together get your copy of resolve for thirty percent off using the code asked and just head over to courage fight again dot com and click on. Get the book and if you like to join the group on the lincoln the show notes to let me know. And i'll be in touch tone next time. Thanks for We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

Food Activism with Jenny Dorsey
"Jimmy dorsey welcome to the model majority. Podcast today thank you for being one of our very first episodes to record in the year. Twenty twenty one which is a very exciting for so many people that we are here at this point but before we get into all that one actually start from the very beginning to get to know your personal story a little bit. i love to hear about. Where did you grow up. how did you grow up. And if anything during that time leads you become who. You are today as a chef but also has an activists usc for sure so i was born in shanghai china and my parents moved to the us when i was around to pursue their both of them are scientists and so they moved to new york. They went to a school in the bronx. And so i followed them when i was up three and a half with grandparents so i was really raised by my grandparents growing up And lived in new york until about eight. Yeah that's i think that's right. I moved to seattle so i. I set my larger chunk of my childhood in seattle washington and ended up going to school College in seattle as well so like good decade plus in seattle cut the no it and during that time also like learned. I think that seattle is not the place for me. I really really wanted to go back to new york so right after college and making that switch back to new york i i. started in management consulting after college. I was a finance major in school. Originally marketing major switched over to finance was not doing so great. Marketing and very quickly knew that finance. It's fine but it was something that is not naturally good at it. You know. I think everyone kind of has their own talents and you can tell you a talented something when it's really yes you're still gonna have to work hard and there's times where you're not doing great job or what. Not but for the most part. Like in makes just intuitively makes sense to you and tell. The numbers intuitively. Don't make sense to me the way that they did to other people And i hate like the serota asian being good at math and talk about that maybe later on but at least it was like a way to get my foot in the door ever since i was young. Who was always a big part of my life. But i didn't even think about it in college or honestly dion for a while because it was never really encouraged by my family. My family going up with more traditional than they are now I'm chinese american and like and we kind of because they were scientists. They were very wary of Career or they felt that. I cannot get ahead because they were you know they were in our lab. They were always the ones that were doing all the work. If you've just look at lab dynamic it's always usually by hawk. Individuals a lot of them. Asian east asian or south asian. Doing all the research all the were all the writing but who is the main like name on the paper that you see who's getting nobel peace prize for their work in science. It's usually white men and that dynamic played out throughout my childhood. I never really consciously understood it but now looking back it was. You know my parents had these bosses. And i'd be like but you do everything and they get all the credit. I'll get it. You know so anyway. I think my parents really wanted me to find a career where i could succeed and not have to be under someone's thumb so to speak and they really wanted you know they've really encouraged less ultra prenatal careers for more careers where you can make money and you can be independent so business. Definitely they definitely encouraged. I was an undergrad business school and they were like yeah. You can now go out as a console. You do make a lot more money like you know so. They just wanted that stability they wanted to non you know. Be a lab technician salary for me Even if they really loved the sciences sciences so anyway with that kind of mind food never really felt like a real clear path. Never really thought about. I never really even explored at. I had no idea what to do right. I think a lot of people who are interested in food don't really know how many years pm and starting my career absolutely hated it. I was in the fashion and luxury division. So i usually work with clients in your fashion and luxury so i spent a lot of time By clothes being obsessed with clothes and shoes and being skinny and it was like a really tough period of time because everyone around me really encourage that behavior as well. It was always about how you lose more way out of your book. Nice you know there was a lot of judgement and it. I think it really came to a head. there was one time at At work where our partner came in and she was very fashionable. Amazing like wealthy Woman and she had brought in a bunch of clothes she had purchased at a sample sale. We We work in chelsea in new york city and chelsea market. Has this like if you've been. There was kind of large area in the center of the market. That always has sampled feels. And i guess she had gone to hurry and she just said that she would just buy everything that basically that was in her size and just figure it out later and it was. I mean there was a lot of things but let's about. But i just remember thinking of this woman coming ahead at all. You know she was. She was such a bath right and the fact that she would come in with a garbage bag full of new clothes designer clothes. It's like it's never ending hole in your heart that you're just trying to fill with dot and you can't ever fill it like spoil alert for anyone who's over there you can't feel it it's impossible it doesn't matter how much money you out you can't feel it because that's not something that can be so thing

Oh, says the support system has allowed her to devote herself entirely to her art. This is something that kind of gives you a little bit of a rhythm where you feel like you can catch your breath and say, Okay, I actually have the space and the time to continue to be an artist on a daily basis is an enormous luxury. It is changed my life. It's a luxury that labor organizers have fought repeatedly to defend during the cultural unemployment schemes. 84 year existence.

Well, then hear from Mayor Cooper. At this time, I'll turn it over to United States Attorney Cochran Have known 2020 has been a tough year for Nashville. Started back in March with devastating tornadoes that we had the torch through some of our neighborhoods. Continued through the pandemic and the events of this past summer and now this Cowardly bombing on Christmas morning. Right here in the heart of our downtown. Yeah. When they haven't heard about Nashville use in the time I've lived here is that they're tough and they stick together as a team, and that's what we're doing now. And I want you to know that the team is behind me. And the folks that they represent are doing everything we can to. Find out what happened here to get the answers that you deserve. And to make sure that we're all safe. So One of the toughest groups of folks we've got here in middle Tennessee is our law, enforcement of first responders and nowhere in my experience in law enforcement. Has that ever been plainer to me and what happened early yesterday morning? 6 15 6 26 30 years. So on Christmas morning, Metro Nashville police officers just number of blocks north of here didn't run away from danger literally ran to danger. Vehicle that was announcing that it was going to blow up. And Metro Nashville police officers instead of heading in the other direction headed towards that. They evacuated that area got all the citizens out of there. I'm quite confident that their actions are part of the reason why there was less cost of life in this heinous act. Sorry. Yesterday morning we had a task force came together and it didn't No. One time thing. This is what we do all the time. The U. S attorney's office. We work together with our federal partners are state partners in our local partners. That's what immediately started happening yesterday.

The department justice, the acting attorney general has told me any resources we need. We can have the FBI and the A. T F have sent their most specialized bomb technicians here to Nashville. And as we speak, they are north of here, a number of blocks that he had a massive crime scene. Doing what they do. Doing frankly what they do better than anyone else in the world, and it's quite a challenge. Having been up there and seeing that scene, it's like a giant jigsaw puzzle created by bomb throws pieces of evidence across multiple city blocks. They've got to gather it. They've got to catalog it. They've got to put it back together and trying to find out what the picture of that puzzle looks like. But there's no one better to do it. Then the folks we've got on the ground here in Nashville, Tennessee, right now. So that's going on as we speak. The investigations of the Leeds was going on as we speak. I am Confident in the team. We have way will get to the bottom of this that we will find out the story of this individual or individuals. We don't know right now. But this this is ultimate Scrooge, who on Christmas morning instead of spreading joy and cheer decided to spread devastation and destruction. But We know how that story ends your Nashville.

"technician" Discussed on Veteran On the Move
"Different pieces of what's in there I, said, I promise you you have the technical acumen to fix a Patriot missile system. It won't take me very long to teach you how to fix on air conditioning system or even a commercial fishing system. The reality is, is that this is much simpler than you're working on now and it's just transitioning that knowledge to a new field and it can happen very quickly usually the first two weeks people are shocked, and then all of a sudden three, they turn a corner and all of a sudden it all makes sense and they're just running with it. Yeah I really do think Time and time. Again, I, see veterans to sell themselves short because they've talked until out of whatever I did in the military, there's no civilian application and the reason that there are a lot of civilians that think about vendors like. So you worked Patriot missiles but okay. But you know House Ed. Apply to the civilian sector but there's a lot of city agencies that will do that. They don't get it either but the ones they get it. They focus in on those soft skills and you're like, like you said, if you're if you have the capability of learning how to maintain a Patriot missile system, I could probably teach you how to do a lot of technical stuff and you're going to pick it up pretty quick absolutely, and I'll tell you that training program that they taught you how to. Work your system is going to be very similar to the training program your experience when you come here as well, very intense, high intensity stuff six days a week and six weeks done, and so we want to get you out in the workforce as soon as possible making the Ninko, the you have learning objectives and enable learning objectives. Absolutely We worked for the State of Texas, where it workforce initiative through the State of Texas. So we're actually recognized and certified by the Texas Workforce Commission and part of that is all of our curriculum has to be reviewed. We have to have learning objectives everything's in place and approved and You know I. It's been trying and we've got a lot of success with it. So we're GONNA continue to run with it. It's awesome. Okay. So what is six weeks at the perfect technician academy cost? US Some of the six week program is fifteen, thousand, five, hundred, twenty, five dollars. We do a variety different things that. We are approved. So if you have gi bill benefits that will cover the entire if you're one hundred percent eligible. Those that are of interest and eligible or even ten percent eligible. Basically, we will take the VA payment has their down payment, and once we get you to work and you start working whatever that balance is you pay two hundred and fifty dollars a month that no interest back to the school and pay it off as you go. So most people if they come in, they have no money they opened down down payment between fifteen hundred and thirty five hundred dollars is the down payment and the pay two hundred and fifty dollars for forty, eight, fifty, six months and be done. But. One of who want to do is we want to make sure you're fully employed before you start Amos back. And you mentioned this. A little bit earlier. The averages that you're seeing what are most guys coming right out read out of. Your training program making. So it varies from state to state and locations. It's going to be a little bit different but the the average salary selling coming out. Within the first year they should be making about forty, five, forty, seven, thousand dollars somewhere in that range and. They can make a whole lot more than that. Once what you were talking about building trust with that customer having that repeat customer and those opportunities. When you build trust with customers, you increase that opportunity for long-lasting business, potential creating agreements and things to help you to be successful, and that's really what it is. Once you get that these down and understand you know the selling aspect and how to ask for money I, mean, those are some things about difficulty in over once you get to that point and you understand how all those things play together. These technicians now I kind of told you the beginning I worked at a medical school for twenty five years and I know people that are family physicians and I know twenty-eight-year-old h back that are making as much if not more than the family physicians that went to medical school ten years of college medical. School etc. going on and have all that. Debt. So the reality is you can make a very good living for your family if you yourself and you work are well, that's incredible. Now fifteen thousand five hundred seems like a lot of money I'm curious do with how the Gi Bill Works Trades, schools, gazettes as fairly new with it the GI bills covering trade schools in the last few years. for example, if you go to college for nine months, two semesters in the total bill is fifteen, thousand, five, hundred in that uses up nine months of your thirty six month eligibility. So essentially used one year of College of one of your four years of college eligibilty in a typical brick and mortar type school scenario. If you use fifteen five on a trait, a six week trade school Gino. How many months of the bill that Burns up? Eight months off the GI bill so it takes. One Year of your fears, Position GonNa Community College for a year. So what what I tell Liz I if you WANNA do a slow paced learning. You go to the Community College. You'll do much slower pace and you're you're getting the same education as much as you put into it you'll get out of it but you're not gonNA earning money. During that time you come to a six week program we take everything they're teaching you in those that year program and work grandma the six weeks and we have eight hour. Days plus two hours of homework every night and it six days a week. So the number of hours spent in the classroom and doing this stuff and that six weeks is the same as you're going to spend over that year period of community college is just much more intense and all at one time and we feel that if we do it that way, there's less likelihood that you're GonNa Forget what you learn week one when it comes week sits you do over a year what you learn and twelve month twelve month one. Yes sometimes, there's a lot of information that's lost and so by concentrating that, get you in the work environment where you're doing it right away you retain the information much bet and you're making income within six weeks rather than after twelve months. So that's the benefit but the cost is there. That's a real cost and does date eight months away but the reality is you're in the workforce right away absolutely and you know if you're coming out of the military and you need income real quick like especially if you have if you married have a family whatever you don't have the luxury of being able to live on a you know macaroni and cheese in tuna for a couple of years. The I remember. It's a great tradition but boom six weeks in your urine positive income mode at that point after the six weeks, you still have three years essentially if you're Gi bill left. So you go out you start working the fact job. If you decide you don't like it. Then you can always walk away from it and you still get three years eligible to go to traditional college or You just keep on work in Indian going to night school or correspondence June doing some of the correspondence classes go to college anyways, and you still got three years left and you just double do double duty so. It's quick. And what you talk about one of your relatives that was. Doing commercial but then doing residential Hvac on the side and thanks to make some extra money I talked I read one of our graduates actually an easing. Now. So he goes to college fall and spring. Then all summer he works for an air conditioning contracts in the south. That's the biggest time for eggnog. Right so you works all summer and he hasn't had to take out any loans. He's made plenty of money. You you you use your Gi. Bill stuff or the school during the fall and spring plus you're taking home drink you're making over the summer you can spread out and live in addition to that. So, there's a lot of it opens up the door that you can do a lot lot more, and once you have that certification and once you have that experience, no can take that away from you go anywhere in the country and work and heating or dishing. Areas being in the south heating to begin the north and you're GONNA learn it all know how.

I'm glad we're getting together now. Co Cova just allowed us to to to create the podcast in a new way. That actually invites guests from all over the world to sit down and chat with us now, so this is this is actually it's Kinda. It's Kinda panned out. What are we? What are we just kick it right off with. With a little explanation from your end of what what is Oh school. School is a trusted resource that helps people all over the world. Learn about sex dating anything that's around sexual wellness, and another way to look at this is we fill the gap online between planned parenthood and porn hub? Is Amazing. I love that. I'm writing. when I was younger I had the usual public school as t either bad sex, said minimal health information, but I also had a Catholic school. Gay people are bad. Do not have sex until marriage, and so I am one all that I think would have been better off with no sex. Ed in the said I received and when I was building my tech career before this I build accounting software and was a venture capitalist for a minute just making. Online, businesses better at helping online internet founders, and it was rare ironic to me that even though I was investing in companies building technology companies. None of this helped me when I was personally unlearn a lot of sexual shame, and that's why I started becoming obsessed with the space started to ask these questions of what could be the Internet. That's not porn or just medical information. I used go ahead Brad. I noticed there is a lot of There was a lot of in their. The titles of the blogs are so vast like the stuff that they covered I had written down. Something like you know. Is Masturbation a sin all the way to like five great ways to sit on someone's face and I it I noticed though over the whole all the headlines or was kind of a recurring. Aspect of spirituality or like Christian. Christianity specifically, but just this addressing a lot about the relationship between like pleasure and. Real spirituality religion, etc. Where does that come from when I started looking into the space I found that there were amazing sex educators and organizations who were speaking to people who were on a road of sexual liberation at had a lot of already exposure to topics around sexuality. What I found was sorely lacking in a definite lack for me, was that for a lot of people even clicking or looking at an article? That's about something very explicitly. Sexual is too much, and those are the people that we wanted to reach the Kansas. City person who's had only. been exposed to. A lot of shame, a lot of messages that sexton okay sex is bad and to reach those people you need to do a lot of different things, and we also believe that those people who are in need of the most education probably lacked the language in, so we actually speak for example like every educator will tell you the Bulla.

"Even if the recipient doesn't like the book visit interested in the topic whatsoever in fact a friend of theirs thought enough of them it give it to them they're going to be grateful for the friend thinking there's not going to be any any blowback this the looks not a fit for whatever reason so that's one of the reasons we tend to encourage clients to get a lot now for sure okay to connect the dots a little bit if you have no You you've identified your ideal patient than the best referral source would be for that ideal patient to distribute your book or whatever collateral that you have and removing the effort from them so it is easier to that the easiest process as possible so for instance you give them a handful of books and say hey if a if you know of anybody looking for a dentist and give them this or what does that what does that actual conversation sound like from there yeah so I mentioned before we'd worked with an orthodontist Vegas mhm we created a book for him and he really wanted to begin treating kids earlier because he felt like they got better outcomes and could prevent a lot of a lot of problems that that were difficult to deal with if if they change it the kind of traditional time in their early teens and so he had a very specific group in a very specific problem was targeting and he was able to take that book and have conversations with the parents of patients and say come on a mission to solve these particular consequences that happened when we don't get kids in here early and I've written this book that describes it all and I know that you know you know people at you know PTA church you know in in your mom's groups wherever that have kids that are in this age perfect age window and if I recall it's been years use targeting folks at around age seven or eight I could be wrong but I think that was that and so he could narrow it down and he would sit you know have someone on his team and literally make a list with that parent of three or four or five ten people you know and they have of course their contacts they're hauling their phone and the best thing you can do is say great you know what we'll see Obama copy of the book with with your compliments and you know in an often that patient will be happy share the contact information can be now because it does it requires less work on their part okay and so we wanna take much work often as possible in some cases they'll say okay right now I'll take some go give them out in which case you're going to want to have a follow up call from somebody on your team about a week later with that that patient saying hey you know I know you're GonNa get this looks out what was the feedback what if people say which is a more elegant way of saying did you out you know 'cause if you don't have that follow up call they'll tend to ride around in the trunk of a car for a while but if you had that follow call they probably won't have given them out but they will do it because they know you're gonNA check so that's one way to do but it also allows you to go to to to referral sources not not your patients but you know people who are centers of influence who who deal with protector nations you're targeting other physicians saying escape the orthodontist was going to get all the ones that were in his network and say look I'm on a mission to get early and here's why and here's the things that we're trying to solve and I wrote a whole book about it and here you can give this to your patients okay and he could go to other professionals that were in his network in the community and have that same conversation and that that's a much easier saying that under professional to do then to make the direct referral because they can give that book out long before it's time to make direct referral and that will they were were sort of pushing the acquisition of leads further out from the time that they're going to make a decision which is good that gives us a chance it's has an entrepreneur to build relationship to trust to create authorities so that when the time comes they've already made the first hand show purchase in their minds that is to buy that you're there guy your gal for sure that stuff good stuff so identify your ideal patient a what problem are you solving for that patient base eliminate the necessity for your referral base to become a sales person on your behalf what's next so as you've gone through that process you will get you know you'll get names a potential patients you'll send them the referral give you information that'll start relationship okay but again it's our opportunity it's our it's our responsibility to stay in touch with those people to communicate with them to educate them to get them and it's a very different approach to referrals the most people think most people believe their referral as when one of your patients Dr someone to your office they tell them how to fill out the check their standing there at the front forever if you take on a lot of that responsibility yourself so now you've got to stay in touch now you've got to engage all of these referrals and get them in not all of them are going to be ready to bind the day and and that's okay you want to still get them in your system give them in your database again marketing to them building relationship with them and so as you're doing events this is when you've got all of these people you know they're in your database you invite them to that so they can experience your staff what it's like to be in your office you send them a newsletter postcard you're engaging them up until the point that they're ready to make a decision impatient Nice Nice okay so I want to kind of pivot a little bit because I want to talk about both folks here I'm intrigued by the title of your second book as well the exponential network strategy can you tell us a little bit about that that book and how that's a little different absolutely so with the exponential network strategy that really came out of my own frustration with networking within Mike My Community I go to networking events I'd meet people we'd have coffee or a lunch date and we have had a great conversation agree that we both wanted the mythical mutually beneficial relationship and then you know I'd never hear from the other person's again and and I just found that it didn't work very well and so the way we stumbled upon a solution to that was that in two thousand twelve I started my first podcast and I realized when I used to go around networking and trying to to meet people the answers in the community and and and sources of referrals it was often very difficult the people that I actually wanted to connect with hard to reach they weren't off at the events that that you know were kind of common in the community and and so I wasn't making progress but if I had a podcast and I reached out to them you know another another business owner any professional and said I had this thing and I'd love to interview about your expertise and like the show with everybody that I know that I had no trouble getting them on the phone and building relationship with yes you're doing something for them instead of asking something from them it's a huge it's huge distinction absolutely absolutely and and so you know we we never closed business on a podcast interview it's just not appropriate offer to build relationship but now that I've done something for them and we've had a chance to talk like you on our talking here we kind of know each other a little bit and I've spent that entire arena you shining a bright light on the other person in their expertise so they feel really good about it because we all want to talk about ourselves and what we do then I what I want to go reach back out and and deepen that relationship they're gonNa answer the phone when I call they're going to return my calls they're gonNa return my emails they're gonna be open to meeting again and it allows me to develop that into a deeper relationship on at the same time it's got this really great strategic byproduct of creating this content that I can put out to to to my market to nurture them and keep them engaged and they hear my voice which helps build trust or just magic to to the human voice in an audio as a medium and you create all this content that people will go in binge listen to you know and we've had we've had prospects tell us the hard way you know they they subscribe to the podcast at the beginning of a business trip they listened to twenty or thirty episodes while they were driving you know someone it wasn't stripped if you add that up you know they're basically telling me they've spent twenty hours with me in the car that's awesome so just a few small details guesses really interesting to me how long are your episodes and do you have multiple business owners on per episode or do you do that like one episode per business owner so our our episodes are generally around thirty minutes but if we're having a really great sation kept out of their personal just let goes yeah yeah if it's a great conversation and I'm having a good time and they're having a good time number one goal is to develop that relationship ship with that individual okay awesome what I what I found is if we're having a good conversation than anybody that listened to that in the future is going to enjoy it as well now because that energy just come through so yeah we've had him goes on our and you know and usually it's just one other one of their entrepreneurial on that that episode but all of that said there aren't any formulas that magic you're you could do it with me the people although I do think there's something useful about that wild one connection but you certainly can do it in a whole different formats and then how often are you airing the episodes we we hear them Weekly I just think that having something go out every week gives you the opportunity to interview more people in a year than than maybe doing it every other week or doing it once a month and so if your goal is to really build up a lot of relationships weeklies going to give you that opportunity and I think doing something daily or three times a week is just a lot of work that most visitors Kabamba for my podcast is a seven day week podcast but I have a great cloud I my hat's off to you all seven hundred sixteen episodes while that's amazing thanks man so okay this is this is really cool so how do you spread the word about the podcast to the people in your local community that's that's another kind of big question that arises in my brain when I when I think of this concept yeah so if I were if I were to point where I was trying to grow at a dental practice my approach might be a little bit different okay certainly would probably WanNa go interview other other medical professionals that could could refer we're doing when we're setting up a client were either are getting essential clients for there to interview directly or we're targeting influencers of and so I'd be looking at are who the centers influence and I might take one or two approaches so I might take the approach that I'm also just going to go and talk to all the local business owners and business leaders so then I'll get spread around that way and within that community because they likely all you know have have families and and could be you know really good central patient approach would be just to highlight look things of local interest and you know and and again you might target local businesses that are kind of unique so if I were in Tallahassee Florida if I were doing that we have all of a sudden a great microbrews seen here you know and that's kind of become newsworthy lately and so I might interview a number of people in that or at you know muscles are things going on I might do that so that when people are in the community your channel figure out when do this weekend or what's happening maybe on the source for that so there are a couple of different approaches that you can take their and you know and it's certainly possible to do that in a way where you as the entrepreneur don't necessarily have to be the the person that's that's kind of the voice of the podcast all that you can't be a group of dental practices is police officers fire fighters and hair salon owners because they have tight communities and and they have you know people that they speak to all the time and those are the types of people that really seemed to drive a ton of business for us when we when we break down our main refer all sources so are you Are you spreading the word about the podcast increasing listenership by advertising on facebook or you just getting the people that you are interviewing to share that to their communities so depends on the market okay if you know a lot of the folks we work with are our business to business and then were mostly relying on the guests to share when we're business to consumer that's going to be a little bit different that's where particularly if you're if localized area using something like facebook and Instagram ads which you know in a localized area very very inexpensive.

"The mountains of Prescott Arizona a place your ideal clients or patients in our case and achieve the business goals that you I've been dreaming of welcome to the show Steve Hey mark I'm excited to be here yeah thanks for thanks for agreeing to do this interview tell us a little bit about your your journey into Entrepreneurship it sounds like he started off with kind of a traditional path and then and kind of expanded into what we now have is a a coach in an expert and in growing businesses yeah I started off kind of an unexpected way my my background is in engineering technical degree and thought that that's what I was going to be doing for my career in my first my first job out of college was a small engineering firm and and had been there about four years and got asked to dickerson Yo and and I as you read the by was baptism by fire I I you know I didn't know what I was doing at all aw and here I wasn't the twenty trying to go out and not only lead the firm but the go out and develop business and so I I got to grow in in that business in the almost now nine going on ten years ago got out starting my car goes and and it's just a blast trying to to go around and help all of the different professional service firms that we work with in different disciplines trying to figure AH attract clients so my dad is a mechanical slash electrical engineer so I know the way that engineers thinking strangely enough very similar to the way that Physicians Dentists Think Very Analytical Very left brain and if it's anything you know like my dad's experience he got zero training as far as how to run a business so where did you develop your business chops because it's it's afar departure from the traditional technical training that you guys get his engineers yeah so I think the first place I started I and missile kind of share my age a little bit round the corner from our office it was a barnes and noble bookstore back when you had to go to a bookstore yeah and and I would just go and buy everything I could get my hands on from the business section and try to learn things and then of course I spent a lot of money on intuition at the School of Knox vessel was just you know we'll try something and didn't work in and Ah I had a a CFO in that business was actually younger than I was and she and I were struggling with the decision one day we finally just looked at each other and we both said at the same time what's the worst happen became the mantra yeah as long as as long as it like we would sit there contract but what could possibly be worse than the situation if we made this region and it was never really that bad so we just decided we're GonNa try things and learned a lot through that experience as awesome my mantra when I first started out in business was a little bit less half ass every day because we didn't know what we were doing you know it was like like let's throw some spaghetti against the wall and see what sticks and it was a little bit more forgiving of an environment back then it's super competitive in in our industry now and and you can't have kind of come out of dental school with three hundred fifty to five hundred thousand dollars in debt and and see what you could figure out so the stakes are higher for today's new dental preneurs than they were back in the day but that's really cool that you ended up being the CEO as actually a technically trained person what would what did you feel like that was like running the actual corporation without a whole lot of tree additional training you didn't you don't hold an MBA or anything like that correct now now I took took an accounting classes college I got to see much too he's a CD a Oh yeah okay and I had I had a business law class and that was about the extent of you know we were a small organization started we attend people by the time I started I actually started kind of running the nations of it after a couple of years before I took over CEO so I had some experience in managing the operations part of it That certainly complicated as we expanded and added locations and added people but but I always the real disconnect was how are we going to get the next client and and you know and so that was the part that I probably spent the most time on the management and operation side of it I always found that to be relevant await straightforward maybe you know the technical background because it's sort of system space but but figuring out how do we go out and and okay create a relationship that's that's GonNa lead to you know that business our our average agreement was five to seven figures so how do you create that yeah for sure okay so that's a great segue into talking about some of your books here ah I love the title of Your First Book unstoppable referrals ten x referrals half the effort so can we dig into a little bit about all kind of the outline of the book and some of your philosophies as far as how US service based businesses go out and get those referral absolutely will yeah I think that'd be very relevant so everybody listening for Sean you know the way that most businesses approach referral is you have a you have a patient and you say to them something try like the the biggest compliment you could ever hey asses as an introduction to your friend you know I have room yeah we always have room for for for referral else that you know that kind of thing or you know sometimes it's it's I think Sap offer commercial back in the ninety s so do you need any more software this week claw sometimes it's like that so do you know that you know you need dental work today yeah yeah and those all of those things and actually I will tell you that in the past when we worked with with dental preneurs they're actually some some of them were really very innovative in this and I think are doing a pretty good job this is what do advance worked with an orthodontist who is out in Vegas and he would do events rent a movie theater out and and there you know the ticket to get in was you know so so there are some innovative ways to do it but the the big challenge was all referral is that we tend to make it too difficult for the patient for the client to refer us because we're putting them in a position of having to sell yes good point yeah that that fundamentally that's what it is we're basically going to them now we're saying Mr Patient I'm not GonNa pay you anything and I'm not gonNA train you at all but I would love for you to go out and be my number one salesperson say mean yeah I guess we are asking that in essence exactly what we're asking and and that's really it's the hardest job at any businesses going and finding the new new patients new clients customers we need to hold onto that responsibility that's our responsibility entrepreneurs but are our patients our clients or customers have an important role to play because they do know other people that could really benefit from the work that we do and so in our job then is to allow them to to do the one thing that they can do which help us connect the dots between who else in the community might be upset and and then we do all the heavy lifting beyond that and so that's really what the book is about how you know the the method for going about that and we can certainly dive into specifics yet I'd love to get a little bit more tactical at the you know the the people that are listening to this podcast heavily sophisticated business owners were all over the world there's thousands of people probably listening to our voice right now and this is a common theme of the hundreds of Dennis that I talked to every single month desiring to scale their businesses a big part is patient acquisition and and how to do that internally so I'd love some technical tips for for the audience so I I I think the first key thing every client we work with this is the place we start is getting really clear on who your ideal patient is okay it and it's it's really easy in in in your industry to say well everybody has a mouth everybody has teeth so it's everybody okay that's dangerous that that will take you down down a path that will make it really difficult to attract any and the reason that it will make it difficult to attract what is it that you're gonNA put a marketing message out that describes what you do in the value that that you offer that's going to be so watered down that it's not going to speak any individuals if everybody's target that nobody's our target exactly so so that's the first thing is get specific and that's that's sometimes difficult for entrepreneurs to wrap their heads around the hear it all the time they understand the value in it but but if feels like they're giving up unity and it's funny because whenever we take someone through that process and they decided okay it's not gonNA turn business away but my marketing effort initially I'm going to focus on this group in this specific problem that this group has and as soon as they do that it's like the world opens they all of a sudden they can see all of these opportunities to to connect with those types of people they're all all of his opportunities were there they were just blind to them they weren't looking for her and so it really that focus will accelerate your progress and then you just take that and then you replicate it for another type of head your client or another most businesses end up with one to three you know if it's a bigger business and I I would imagine most of western fit into this category but it's big business where you rock out US serious marketing department maybe you can get five but but usually one two three and that's usually plenty yeah you can build a very profitable very large practice on that that's the first step awesome so once you've done that now it it it becomes very clear who you're targeting and what problem you can solve for them okay and and would it be as specific as as you can about the types of problems that they have what the consequences of those problems are and very likely there are concerts winces to to some of the health problems that you're treating that they're unaware so you can be a real hero to them helping educate them on that when you get that specific now it becomes easy to put together materials that will educate that potential patient and then motivated the come and see at will also help kind of enable your your existing patients to to figure out who within their world can benefit from from that information and so the way that that normally looks for the folks that we work with is Vail we call it in the book a referral Kit and the idea the referral kids were just taking information that would be really valuable all to that potential patients were packaging it up in a way that easy to share and that's and that carries no risk okay that's that's really critical that we eliminated the risk because that's really one of the big things that that deters your patients from bringing by the end they bring someone in that person has a bad experience as a first experience with you will the patients who referred them as response label for that right so it's all amateurs there yeah damages their relationship so you know and so when we create this referral kit it often will take the form of maybe a short book that's on specific topic it might take a form of of a presentation that you either deliver live and in person or you know virtually through the Web and and it could be something as simple as you know white paper or report lots of different ways you could package this up at one client that the the Put his on audio CD because his settles all know executives who were driving around from meeting to meeting so it doesn't really matter what format it takes but the ideas that it's something very easy for for your clients pass on perceive that that there's no risk in doing the kind of the gold standard in this is a short book and the reason for that is that.

"You're listening to this podcast it's come to your events their their clients to mind they're they're doing this because you know what I'm I'm pretty good at what doesn't in the the digital world hiring more systems to provide more are services that way or even bringing other dentist under your umbrella because ultimately e you can go out and sell more procedures than you can personally deliver like we don't want our ability to deliver something ourselves to be that that ceiling as to what we can do so having people to scale handing off low Roi asks right I mean there are plenty of twenty dollars an hour tasks in our business the somebody else could get great fulfillment and and in gainful employment doing and most people who have any sort of remotely successful service business already have some of the the place but my experience is most of them defaulted just doing what everybody else does they got the same number of the people working in office managers handling billing or a dental assistant or personal trainers or physical therapy assistance as the other practices they've seen around them they charge very similar fees they offer very similar services and I think the I mean it it's very cliche but if if we want something different and better than we've probably got to be enjoyed approach solving the problem differently to of course of course a great insight so hey pat kind of not unsubtle left turn here I just love this I love the whole concept of an ideal business sorry keep on coming back to this but the name of your tuck your best selling book is the ideal business formula could you kind of give us a little outline or just some bullet points of what you cover in that book I'd love to push people to to grabbing a copy of this yes so I mean really the book is kind of a combination of my journey to finding this and really probably taking a pretty Scenic route along the way and then crafting this this blueprint that basically allow somebody to build a business that you know it's an individualistic business it's unique to their unique ability their spring their experiences you know it's distinctive so I mean if you are the same as everybody else then you essentially do come off as a commodity you're not going you'd be able to charge twice as much as the next person if everything else feels and sounds the same you know probably the the one that really hit home with me if we're thinking of this light is in acronym is it is enjoyable you know and I think a lot of people they get into a career and they do it because they're like well that's going to provide security you know I'm going to be able to make a nice living bit they look out their miserable going to work every day or at least much of my professional life I've really look forward to going to work every day I really look forward to what I've done just from you know from what I've kind of learned of you it seems like you know you're you're really enjoying the professional satellite now to and and I think what's great about that is it it creates more opportunities for us when we do it it you know we're doing great great work it's fun then man we we're we're going to be motivated to do more we're not gonna be watching the clock and saying man is a weekend here yet so so then you know we we want this I I talked about this earlier it needs to be authentic it needs to be something where we're not feeling like we're just trying to be a knock off of somebody else's model of somebody else's practice it needs to be thank you so if there's a particular way that somebody wants to communicate or particular type of approach they went to market do you know just because somebody says hey going out and doing public speaking a great way to market if that's like fingernails on chalkboard to you then you probably shouldn't do it and then lastly it needs to be lucrative you know I think we've all probably put enough time effort energy and resources into building a business and I'm biased I think the business owners are the ones out there accepting the risk and providing employment opportunities everything else I think they should be rewarded pretty handsomely for the work they do so I make no of bones about it I'm I'm all for you know your business being ready for the value you provide so you know so I touch on all of those different components but I I you know I kinda lead in talking about well I mean we need to have an idea what ideal is for us we need to know what the destination is thanks to the Senate gts like format I how can we craft a plan if we don't know where we're going and and then once we know where we're going we can reverse engineer we can map out okay what what kind of staffing do I need to to have in place accomplished this three years down the line what kind of marketing do I need to to have to to derive the prophets.

"It has to adjust and after all of your effort it still doesn't fit right or you've wiped out all of the approval anatomy or inner proximal contacts it is the against Betas thing a mentor of Yours I mean I've I've learned from so many different people and I I mean I can learn a decade's worth of knowledge in like the youngest coach in college baseball history to a one hundred year one hundred fifty I was the youngest coach on the country for a couple years and so this was my identity I thought I was going to be you the the other one really prompted you know the the business that I have today was I would I would find myself being just mentally consumed by business and not being present for my family not being present for for friends not really ever disconnecting and and really the the tipping point for me I was out in right yard tossing plastic whipple balls my in three year old son and I'm thinking about man I'm responsible for all these people all that are you know working in organization and then the Franchisees and I need to be somewhere else I need to be in there working on that and having guilt I'm like is we really ever a time I should feel guilty out playing in my yard or o'clock in the afternoon with my son I probably need to you to put things back in order and that in that moment I decided okay well it's time for me to unwind this I gotta go sell this off and figure out I'm GonNa do it and build something better so I I mean I'm sure there are we we could be on here you know for the next two weeks and I can talk through other failures but those are the biggest ones for sure I appreciate you sharing that You know I I WANNA go back to this this whole notion of the ideal business because I've had you know of course we've all read Tim Ferriss has four hour workweek and I think that's swept swept the world because bounded so incredible you could go do whatever you wanted to do the financial stuff would be taken care of if you learn how to outsource eliminate delegate Cetera the the Tim Ferriss battlecry is lifestyle business lifestyles the most important thing but that's not for everybody either you know so if we're talking about a lifestyle business having being able to work for hours a week for some people that sounds incredible for some people that sounds miserable the definition of ideal business I would think would be different for many people I think that you know perhaps Richard Branson if you met him many people tell me that he's like one of the happiest in the world and he has over four hundred thirty businesses he by no means has a lifestyle business but he feels totally fulfilled than other people like my friend Michael O'Neill who has a podcast called the solo per near Solo preneurs our prefers to have a simple life a lifestyle type business where he works very title but he has passive income streams that are coming in taking care of his personal overhead so when you're identifying an ideal business for an individual how do you kind of navigate that that definition I think you touched on it really well I mean it's not the same for each person and frankly that's part of what is so fulfilling to what I'm doing now is it's not cookie cutter get to work with somebody and say well what do you actually want because timidly you decide and you get to decide the you know the the the kind of EBB lower rhythm between the personal and professional side of your life you get to decide what role you want to play in the business and frankly ask whether or not your inspired by having multiple businesses or just trying to perfect this one because I don't think there is the one-size-fits-all approach I I think that I would probably be a little stir crazy if I only worked for hours a week because I'm competitive I and I and I want to build something better i WanNa have an impact I want to to do those sorts of things so you know I I think with an ideal business it needs to be whether we want to use the word authentic or whatever else I mean it needs to be true to us and not just kind of the a clone of what somebody else does or a template of what somebody else says is right I mean it needs to be true to us needs to help us achieve our goals whatever level of impact we wanna have if it's you know the the people that we WANNA help correctly as clients customers patients or the amount I mean it could be the impact we're making through hey I'm generating a lot of red revenue and I'm able to go support these important causes to me but it needs to to to be able to have that impact I wanNA have I I think if we wanna pull align Dan Sullivan we have to be able to kind of us are unique ability to be able to play our best role in the because I mean you WanNa talk about a a recipe for burn out in frustration it's been spending a lot of time doing things is not meant to do if I look back in my time even as a baseball coach there there was this point where I'm like I'm spending about twenty percent of my time on baseball Tom Spending all this time. Okay I've got a scheduled games and you know secure a bus and deal with meal money fundraise and how do we turn that unique ability into an income that rewards us four that impact we're having so you know I I mean I'm sure there you know there there's an altruistic part to all of us that ultimately were I mean people are I do and I want to be rewarded for it I wanna be compensated for fairly and I don't WanNa have to feel like I'm you know working a hundred Hours a week to get there sure yeah I love that and let's let's kind of fall that train of thought when we're talking about trade hours for dollars which in Dentistry in any service profession really by definition that's kind of how we make our money you know you have the most highly paid prosecuting attorney or defense attorney in the world I mean they might be making four thousand dollars an hour but they're still in essence trading dollars for hours which is kind of what dentists and physicians and these y'all adjusts and any service profession is doing so how have you have you discovered any hacks be able to be more productive and escaping that dollars for hours trap yeah I think that you know not becoming a commodity would be probably the first one right like not not being measured by okay my my our can only be worth seventy five dollars I mean really I if we're selling not just our time but we're selling the result time provide then we can you know have some price elasticity there which which I think is number one number two is finding those leverage points that allow you to scale with other people or like a lot of people think of automation is just being Technology to to to achieve a task or replica task but I mean I think a starbucks is automation right I mean I mean you have Baristas they can go out there and they can kind of call an audible in whatever drink you order it doesn't have to be straight off the menu they can you know tweak things and you know add things attract things accordingly but that's still scale ability and it require your level of expertise proficient the're education to do it so finding things under your umbrella that allow you to hand off the things that you don't have to do certain things in your business that only you can do at the level that you do them but there are plenty of things that maybe you're thing to do it somebody else can do at a you know an acceptable or even extraordinary level of competence either that hiring you know in.

"Of welcome to another episode of the Dente Podcast I'm your host Dr Costas super excited to be chatting with somebody who has a lot of experience being a business coach entrepreneur and an author his key focus is inspiring and educating entrepreneurs to build their ideal business which is right up my alley and I know that all of you guys listening to my voice right now are interested in creating your ideal business something that we talk about often on the dental podcast so let's hear a little bit more about Pat Rigsby pets dad a husband and a business coach and entrepreneur and an author he's built over twenty five different businesses including two entrepreneur franchise five hundred award winning franchises. today he coaches entrepreneurs to create their ideal business one that allows them to earn more have greater impact and enjoy more freedom to live the lives of their dreams here today to share his insight with you and to help you build the business of your dreams welcome to the show pat how you doing buddy man I'm excited to be here I've been looking forward to this just seeing how much good work you guys are doing I'm just honored to be a part of it today thank you so much let's I always liked to start with a little bit of context so if you could tell us about your journey into Entrepreneurship and into coaching as well because I myself have have traversed that gauntlet and it is not an easy transition so let's hear about your backstory so I was actually a college baseball coach strength coach and then I taught in the Exercise Science Department of the University for the first leg of my professional life and somewhere along the way I figured out I wasn't that out to be an employee that's familiar familiar story with with people that into this podcast anyway yeah bad and so started you know a fitness business that it just because that was kind of the stuff that I like was sport and fitness and fitness business and in a really small town just because that happened to be where the opportunity was about twenty three thousand people grew it to over four hundred clients in about eighteen months which you know for anybody who knows anything about like the fitness like the personal training world that was I mean we're talking two thousand four two thousand five that was pretty you know pretty significant probably about eight to ten times as big as a lot of the Personal Training Studios were were out there in so opened a second location and had similar results and about that time you know regionally you people were saying well how are you doing what you're doing can you show me I started doing a little bit of business coaching I obviously was comfortable with it. a coaching speaking format for my time you know the college coach so that that felt pretty good to me and then you know I kind of backed my way into learning how the the Internet might allow me to the scale this I went to a to a conference not unlike your dental success summit but kind of a fitness really one of the first fitness the business specific things can you tell me who the host Ryan Lee I know Ryan I know you've probably heard of bedrose Cooley in as well yes I I've known Vedro since that that kind of Era Ryan you know I spoke at May dresses I events cooking I've spoken to to obey Joseph Event is one of my original mentors he's an incredible friend a great great person he certainly wants smart guy and So so I go to this family man you know what I should be thinking more nationally internationally instead of just locally because the people onstage our businesses way bigger and way better than and I'm GonNa town of Twenty three thousand people in the middle of Kentucky not exactly a fitness hotbed and so it it just kind of snowballed from there and I said Okay I'm GonNa Change it my focus in started to do more Coaching online and it just seemed like a lot of the Times businesses is there might be good ideas they didn't know how to scale them I might get involved with and you know that's how we got to that twenty five I five plus thirtyish businesses that I've owned or co owned is just some of those opportunities just came from coaching people and it made more sense for me to be involved Turkish role and you know so over time grew a fitness franchise to about two hundred seventy five location and sold that and then had you know education companies coaching companies equipment companies even some bad ideas like drop ship food companies in things like that so you know and then somewhere towards the end of two thousand fourteen eighteen I just felt like you know this is kind of gotten to be something different than than than what I imagined it you know bigger wasn't necessarily better and I wasn't loving going to work and so I sold it and just said you know what if I can build something this big I could build something better that was more fulfilling to me and allowed me to have that kind of the term use earlier ideal business you know let me to have the impact I wanted to have the freedom I wanted to have and still earn a you know a pretty meaningful income for the WHO is delivering and so started over built a new coaching consulting driven business and that's what I've been doing for the most part ever since Wow great stuff man great stuff you know it's not easy to build a franchise and it's not it's not cheap either I I've learned that from Beijing and a lot of my other friends might Parrella who built built up I love kickboxing. I'm sure you know a lot of these guys to that. Congratulations on being able to scale something to first of all have the vision beyond your two locations when you were doing really well and to take it you know nationally and internationally that's that's no small feat so along the way I would love to get your take on this along the way what are the primary lessons that you learned and what are some of the biggest failures that you experienced during that process you know the first lesson that I probably have have learned still is really helpful to me today is you know we side and you know a lot of times I think we we almost advocate that decision making and think well you know what I can really do it the way that it's been done or you know I can't approach things differently I can't do this better that I mean I've I've just seen in in too many cases whether you're talking about you know creating a franchise at that point I mean was largely a conversion based franchise can -verting existing fitness businesses to a franchise model even though that was a very non traditional approach franchising and you can kind of make your roles and so if things aren't the way that you want them you know the I mean fix it and and I think that's been probably the most important lesson that I learned a long way because I think most people just kind of follow whatever path it is laid out in front of so so that was probably the first piece of the puzzle the second was men it's our responsibility to go out and attract people to our business to attract customers clients patients and it's our you know our job we're not we're not going to just magically have them walk in the door because we're doing good work it's our job to make sure they know that we're doing good work and and so making sure that marketing is a three hundred sixty I day a year endeavor is probably another another thing that I probably didn't outstanding media but learned pretty quickly and then beyond that you know I don't necessarily know that bigger is better doc you know that and I'm all for scaling businesses I am I am still motivated motivated by that to this day but I think that you know a if it if all you're doing is looking at top line things not looking at you know the bottom line how you're paying yourself what kind of profit you have what kind of infrastructure you have some time and you're just creating a bigger headache so planning strategically I think that's a big deal and then the last one that I that I learned is mentorship is key I I mean why in the world would somebody just go at things blindly I mean you read a spending time with somebody and not having to reinvent the wheel and I think a lot of us active success isn't a team sports and that's a a pretty narrow minded way to view it and you know I mean obviously if somebody's listening to this podcast they probably already embraced that but I think it's worth reiterating for sure so man's failures got how much how much time do we have yeah tell me about it I'm the master so let's see I was like I mean I was I was a like I mentioned I was the baseball coach I was winning backed up and got into a bit of a power struggle with a vice-president university and a year after leading Rt into a fifth place finish at the world series even though we were among the bottom five percent in the country in budget I was forced who resigned so you WanNa talk about a blow the ego unlike billboards radio show and other stuff and I am essentially escorted out the door and so uh you know so that was probably the first big failure because me and my I mean that was my personal identity I can go back to that town and people still see me as a baseball coats fifteen years later and you know so it took a while can get past that but as with most of the failures I mean it's been a blessing in disguise every time it's always lead the better things once you're the the rugs kind of pulled out from under you in that setting you know somebody saying no to you and you're trying to make a sale or some other thing not going in your way seems pretty pretty manageable yeah so that was number one you know I would I would be anything but honest if I told you all those you know thirty s businesses that I have owned or cone were all homerun sons you know for for every really successful business there was probably one that you know just didn't gain the type attraction that we thought it might and and I would tell you that in many cases that was because you know an ego you know a and not like this boisterous hey I'm smarter better whatever else he go it's like you know why in the world would I think that I can be a CEO of you know twelve different businesses at a time each one of these is getting less than ten percent of my focus and compete in a market where other people are pouring one hundred percent of themselves into it and so so just seeing some of those those things not go the way they they they could have potentially spreading things out and like deluding focus and I would tell.

Survival after death of the spirit or the consciousness and we had a call that rocked me back and I I'm not over it yet it. Was from a young lady who works as an MRI technician And for years now she called me, and she admitted she said you know I see, entities, not. Everywhere but when I'm at work I see entities I wouldn't dare tell my co workers what I. See but, I see, them and I see them. When the, MRI machine is operating and that blew me? Away a column because I I've got a bad back. Trouble back l. four no five, and I've had, an MRI and I think I, explained to the audience when I, had that MRI you know. Curious me I go to the. Technician I say why don't you tell me about this machine and so he opened up the front of, the machine he took a big steel bar a big one, put it up against the. Machine turn the machine on and said try to pull it off And I tried I tried? As hard as I could and there was no way. To pull it off the size, of the electromagnetic, field from an MRI machine is, monstrous absolutely monstrous and there are, effects on on humans and You know maybe maybe maybe others I remember, you telling me a story about the ranch right you remember, that story about.

"A wordpress site that maybe isn't coded up to standards or you know ideal will out perform a christina well oil wordpress site all day long if the bad site is promoted and marketed so many great sites do not think they go nowhere because nobody and you guys please take my my always never nobody anybody right like take that with a grain of salt but my point is you get these people get pissed off because they're not making money so they decide that marketers are charlatans wherever it it's just asinine it's like look all wounded that you're the technician and that's okay the world needs technicians right why do you think at some point and i think the difference between the technician in the entrepreneur is the the entrepreneur will get tired of being a technician after awhile i think some of that evolves through master aircraft you get better at it and there are certain things that you like doing as well as the fact that you know there's it's still to this day i think this was the strangest space in terms of business when it comes to websites because you have customers who know nothing about what you do but they've decided what you do as a commodity therefore this is what's your works now you also have so you can come across the same site one person make sharks three thousand for it one person may charged twenty grand it's all in how you position it and so you this is a type of stuff so this kind of flows into my missing piece rate but the the get really clear you guys that.
