I I had a little panic attack as I'm moving, as 7 00:00:28.440 --> 00:00:32.079 you guys all up and talking about for weeks, and I was like freaking 8 00:00:32.119 --> 00:00:34.320 out. I'm like, Oh man, I've added some stuff, I've hadded 9 00:00:34.320 --> 00:00:38.640 some gear to my my setup here, but will it fit in the in 10 00:00:38.759 --> 00:00:41.399 the suitcase, in the box, like, will it fit? Will it 11 00:00:41.439 --> 00:00:43.600 go? Will it fly? I don't know. So I got to figure 12 00:00:43.640 --> 00:00:47.399 it out. So I just kind of started in a rush, tearing stuff 13 00:00:47.439 --> 00:00:50.920 down, putting stuff in the suitcase, and then I realized like Oh, 14 00:00:50.960 --> 00:00:54.079 I have two more shows this week.

Now, 62 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:58.000 now let's jump over here real quick to me, because Nie says Hello 63 00:03:58.159 --> 00:04:01.639 Billy People, no, mom jokes. All right, I may be cracked 64 00:04:01.680 --> 00:04:06.840 a mom joke, like every thirty five year old still should on these thing 65 00:04:06.960 --> 00:04:12.759 the I publicly apologize for the MOM joke. If in fact your mother is 66 00:04:12.800 --> 00:04:15.919 really deceased, and if that was a troll move, I don't apologize, 67 00:04:15.960 --> 00:04:19.279 but I do apologize if it was. But knees actually a part of this. 68 00:04:19.279 --> 00:04:23.040 This other segment called news to me, so let's go ahead and jump 69 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:30.920 over there. That's news to me. Creating daily all right, so yesterday 70 00:04:30.560 --> 00:04:35.160 is when I heard about this. There was a New Zealand online retailer who 71 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:39.759 leaked the road caster pro to. So they actually listed on their website with 72 00:04:39.839 --> 00:04:44.079 all the features, which is pretty crazy. And then, yeah, and 73 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:46.759 it was crazy. So anyway. So Nie, actually this is kind of 74 00:04:46.800 --> 00:04:51.199 a conglomeration. So there's a guy in our community and Rafael de Furia. 75 00:04:51.319 --> 00:04:54.720 I've put him on the show before or not. He's not been on the 76 00:04:54.720 --> 00:04:58.000 show, but he's been highlight on the show. He found out about it, 77 00:04:58.079 --> 00:05:01.680 tipped off meek meet, tipped off Michael in, Michael of sterling clear 78 00:05:01.959 --> 00:05:06.439 audio. You can check it out. Sterling Clear Dot online is where Michael 79 00:05:06.519 --> 00:05:11.480 wrote a blog article and was able to go to that New Zealand website capture 80 00:05:11.519 --> 00:05:16.480 all this information about the roadcaster pro to, which is so, so sick. 81 00:05:16.800 --> 00:05:19.279 However, it's just not here. Say. We are actually in a 82 00:05:19.360 --> 00:05:24.800 group last night in a room of clubhouse room. There's roadcaster pro room. 83 00:05:24.839 --> 00:05:28.959 Happens every Tuesday night at nine pm eastern time and we were in there just 84 00:05:29.079 --> 00:05:31.639 speculating and having a really good time and all of a sudden the sky jumps 85 00:05:31.680 --> 00:05:35.720 on the stage. It's like yeah, I work for road and all of 86 00:05:35.759 --> 00:05:39.519 a sudden we're like, is this true? Is it not true? Did 87 00:05:39.560 --> 00:05:42.600 you guys get her hopes up? What's going on? And it is confirmed 88 00:05:42.639 --> 00:05:46.120 true and he was really surprised that that Raphael and in knee and Michael were 89 00:05:46.160 --> 00:05:50.000 able to sniff this out. So yeah, I look for an announcement coming, 90 00:05:50.120 --> 00:05:53.560 I guess, in a week. I think that was the timeline. 91 00:05:53.600 --> 00:05:58.480 They said a week that they road caster pro to is it is going to 92 00:05:58.480 --> 00:06:01.120 be out, which I'm pretty excited about. I'm going to I'M gonna probably 93 00:06:01.120 --> 00:06:06.800 get it and he says he has more information, which is awesome as well. 94 00:06:06.800 --> 00:06:11.360 But you can get all the details up to this moment from sterling clear 95 00:06:11.360 --> 00:06:14.399 to online and check that out. But one of the features is going to 96 00:06:14.439 --> 00:06:16.560 have is more powerful PREAMP, so it will actually power this road cat or 97 00:06:16.600 --> 00:06:23.759 this this whatever the heck. I'm using the sure smnb without a fathead adapter. 98 00:06:24.319 --> 00:06:27.839 So anyway, I'm pretty stoked on that. That's going to be good 99 00:06:27.879 --> 00:06:31.160 and that is that is all I got for news for all that fun stuff. 100 00:06:31.199 --> 00:06:34.000 Now I'm going to welcome on. I'm just going to remind bent UN 101 00:06:34.040 --> 00:06:38.560 meet himself, because I ask you the mute. Here we go, Ben 102 00:06:38.680 --> 00:06:43.000 Curry or the failure guy. What's happened to man? What's funny is that 103 00:06:43.079 --> 00:06:46.240 I just heard about this on the linkedin line I was doing earlier, because 104 00:06:46.240 --> 00:06:48.720 he said he bought it. Did you have anybody said they bought it? 105 00:06:48.759 --> 00:06:53.040 Because my guy said he bought one. He said he got his order in 106 00:06:53.560 --> 00:06:56.120 and even I didn't even know they're out or I don't know. I think 107 00:06:56.199 --> 00:06:59.560 so. I think that guy's full of crap. He threw it in the 108 00:06:59.639 --> 00:07:01.879 end. It's Linkedin Seb if you know from from club. Well, he 109 00:07:01.920 --> 00:07:05.639 bought what is he like? A big and he said I don't know, 110 00:07:05.759 --> 00:07:10.600 but he didn't tell me that the roadcaster to even existed. He said that 111 00:07:10.879 --> 00:07:13.519 he had ordered one or his order went through or something to that effect. 112 00:07:13.519 --> 00:07:15.920 So I feel like he bought one. But also, I I've prepared a 113 00:07:15.920 --> 00:07:19.160 lot for this. This is about John Daily, right, and his his 114 00:07:19.240 --> 00:07:23.000 career, his long story career. Yeah, this is about John Really in 115 00:07:23.040 --> 00:07:27.040 the daily. Yeah, absolutely regaled. He he lost fifty to sixty million 116 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:30.839 dollars in a fifteen year period and he's found drunk outs that the hooters. 117 00:07:30.879 --> 00:07:32.839 I've got a whole lot more of how he was created again and I'm to 118 00:07:32.879 --> 00:07:38.040 talk about yeah, I'm super, super pumped. So this is the episode 119 00:07:38.079 --> 00:07:40.600 where we just talk about other people's failures. Is that it? And it's 120 00:07:40.639 --> 00:07:43.560 gross down that could have been a really good episode. We should have thought 121 00:07:43.560 --> 00:07:46.199 about that one. I don't know what the planets but also that's amazing. 122 00:07:46.199 --> 00:07:49.120 But the broadcast process it's own too. So what's the best thing? It's 123 00:07:49.199 --> 00:07:55.199 the sixteen times powerful ice D needs saying. We've got the PREAMP thing, 124 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:58.959 so you can power a forty eight whatever the hell thing. Seven B Yep, 125 00:07:59.120 --> 00:08:01.959 yeah, without the forty eight phantom power or whatever game. I don't 126 00:08:01.959 --> 00:08:05.000 know because I used the road pod mic. This doesn't need powered. Right, 127 00:08:05.680 --> 00:08:09.199 you don't need anything. It goes. Yeah, and then I think 128 00:08:09.240 --> 00:08:11.439 it's going to be like USBC. I don't know, dud there's all kinds 129 00:08:11.439 --> 00:08:15.240 of stuff, like those guys were getting nerdy on it last night. They're 130 00:08:15.240 --> 00:08:16.680 like I could rud dual computers, and I could. You know, I 131 00:08:16.680 --> 00:08:22.920 can control the Alpha Dogg spaceship, you know, made by Tesla and star 132 00:08:22.079 --> 00:08:26.959 link into my neck hole or whatever. I don't even know. Anyway, 133 00:08:28.079 --> 00:08:31.839 it's shout out to you, billy, for showing me about the headphone Jack 134 00:08:31.879 --> 00:08:35.879 on the front of it that I just learned about five minutes ago.

Been and you've come on the show to tell us 161 00:10:03.320 --> 00:10:07.879 what does that even mean? So, man, let's tee this thing out, 162 00:10:07.960 --> 00:10:11.039 let's get started. Tell me what, in your words, what the 163 00:10:11.039 --> 00:10:15.600 heck is failure to you? So to me it's me, and said get 164 00:10:15.639 --> 00:10:18.080 in it on this, because every time he forgets that I were. We 165 00:10:18.120 --> 00:10:20.840 basically coming to the same point. But it says like I don't believe in 166 00:10:20.879 --> 00:10:24.879 failure, and I'm and what I say is that the real, true definition 167 00:10:24.879 --> 00:10:28.639 of failure from me is that if you if you do something and you don't 168 00:10:28.639 --> 00:10:31.720 suc seated it, like you don't achieve what you wanted, and then you 169 00:10:31.840 --> 00:10:35.000 don't learn from it, you like men in black yourself where you purge that 170 00:10:35.039 --> 00:10:39.279 information, that's a failure. If you fail and you learn from it, 171 00:10:39.320 --> 00:10:41.320 that's the point. You know, that's what you got to do in order 172 00:10:41.360 --> 00:10:46.399 to be successful. But if you pay the price of experiencing the failure, 173 00:10:46.519 --> 00:10:50.120 don't just try to forget it as soon as possible, actually learn from it, 174 00:10:50.120 --> 00:10:54.720 because that's the best teaching experience. And even hearing other people's failures doesn't 175 00:10:54.759 --> 00:11:01.120 do it as much justice as feeling those moments, because it's just it's so 176 00:11:01.159 --> 00:11:05.200 powerful. The I can never forget the things I've learned because I messed up 177 00:11:05.200 --> 00:11:07.559 so bad. You know, submit is it what inspired you to start a 178 00:11:07.600 --> 00:11:13.000 podcast called the failure guy or like tell me that. Tell me the origin 179 00:11:13.120 --> 00:11:16.720 story of your guest. So creating John Daily starts like this. So basically, 180 00:11:18.840 --> 00:11:22.679 I got the fail your license plate. First my thoughts were I've been 181 00:11:22.720 --> 00:11:26.559 reading so many self help books and I can't implement any of the good things, 182 00:11:26.559 --> 00:11:31.240 but they all said to get comfortable with failure. So I'm going to 183 00:11:31.279 --> 00:11:33.480 put it on my license plate. All we reminded of every day. I'll 184 00:11:33.480 --> 00:11:37.879 get comfortable with failure. Also, anybody, I was a priest and it's 185 00:11:37.919 --> 00:11:39.879 already been totaled in the hailstorm. So it looked like a golf ball, 186 00:11:39.919 --> 00:11:45.039 basically, and so everyone already judging me. I figured pop up failure plate 187 00:11:45.159 --> 00:11:48.240 on it. It'll may be decreased road rage, increase laughter, who knows? 188 00:11:48.279 --> 00:11:52.000 And then I was like also all out to look at that every day 189 00:11:52.000 --> 00:11:56.240 and you reminded of failure and the importance of it and just getting used to 190 00:11:56.279 --> 00:11:58.600 it. So then I just said I was going to write a book. 191 00:11:58.679 --> 00:12:01.360 I don't know if I can swear here, so I'm not going to, 192 00:12:01.519 --> 00:12:05.639 but it's the power of effing up or the power of failure, or why 193 00:12:05.639 --> 00:12:09.159 I've was half why I'm happy. I was fired from every job I've ever 194 00:12:09.200 --> 00:12:13.799 had one of those things and I realized, did I just not do a 195 00:12:13.799 --> 00:12:18.639 good job researching or did you if I just never seen this book or you 196 00:12:18.679 --> 00:12:20.559 didn't mark them properly? What's happening? I didn't write the book. I 197 00:12:20.559 --> 00:12:26.559 realized I don't know grand a failure. I only know my getting fired thing. 198 00:12:26.879 --> 00:12:30.720 I'm going to make a podcast interviewing other people, but their failures to 199 00:12:30.799 --> 00:12:33.879 help either supplement the book or just because I want to do a podcast. 200 00:12:33.919 --> 00:12:35.679 I would already been doing a podcast. I try to do a podcast with 201 00:12:35.720 --> 00:12:39.360 a friend about mad TV. We're going to watch every man, a TV 202 00:12:39.440 --> 00:12:43.200 episode and do a podcast upisode about it. We got through one and we 203 00:12:43.279 --> 00:12:48.480 just couldn't work together, so we we scrap that and then I was like, 204 00:12:48.519 --> 00:12:50.840 I'm trying to write this book. I probably wrote like three thousand words 205 00:12:50.840 --> 00:12:52.120 of it and I'm like, I'll just make it into a podcast and I'll 206 00:12:52.120 --> 00:12:56.879 do it myself and I control everything and then I can't fail as easily. 207 00:12:56.919 --> 00:13:00.639 You know, it's tough. When it took you got a cohost situation. 208 00:13:00.720 --> 00:13:03.559 You don't, you know, on the same page. Yeah, that makes 209 00:13:03.600 --> 00:13:05.799 sense, man, we talkt we that. We talked about that all day. 210 00:13:05.840 --> 00:13:09.000 I've been in some of those situations. So, man, I think 211 00:13:09.000 --> 00:13:11.600 this is this is interesting that you were, you know, kind of going 212 00:13:11.679 --> 00:13:15.440 into creating a book, which I think is pretty cool. I have you 213 00:13:15.519 --> 00:13:20.600 consider taking your podcasts and having that transcribed into a book, now that you've 214 00:13:20.240 --> 00:13:24.960 ton of content. That that was the idea. It was like to get 215 00:13:24.000 --> 00:13:28.120 some because I'm not sure what the rules are, but I'm sure I'm assuming 216 00:13:28.159 --> 00:13:30.120 any of the interviews and stuff, we can take some of the stories and 217 00:13:30.159 --> 00:13:33.399 things and put it into a book format. But also I'm writing a book 218 00:13:33.480 --> 00:13:37.159 right now called when givers meet, which is about, if you've read the 219 00:13:37.159 --> 00:13:43.159 book the go giver, it's all about having a basically a my set in 220 00:13:43.200 --> 00:13:46.399 business to be giving instead of trying to think about what's in it for you 221 00:13:46.480 --> 00:13:50.240 kind of thing. And so my thing is about when who are have them 222 00:13:50.279 --> 00:13:56.320 mentality to givers meat. It's like a giver's arms race and like it's just 223 00:13:56.360 --> 00:13:58.960 cheap trying to give to each other and both pole benefit like to the extreme. 224 00:14:00.039 --> 00:14:03.159 So I'm writing a book about that. This will eventually become a book. 225 00:14:03.159 --> 00:14:07.279 But also I've got like a failure guy story that's worth of worth of 226 00:14:07.320 --> 00:14:11.840 book itself, because I went through some crazy I thought that when I got 227 00:14:11.840 --> 00:14:16.679 the license plate would all be historical, but negative manifestation must be real, 228 00:14:16.759 --> 00:14:20.559 because I have probably experienced just as much failure after getting it, and then 229 00:14:20.600 --> 00:14:24.320 even all those firings. And by the way, I was five for six 230 00:14:24.639 --> 00:14:28.639 getting fired when I started the podcast and I got fired during the podcast. 231 00:14:28.039 --> 00:14:31.200 Wait, do you say number six? You've been fired from six places, 232 00:14:31.279 --> 00:14:37.120 six or six since graduer in college. I've never got fired for getting a 233 00:14:37.120 --> 00:14:41.360 waiter. I didn't get fired from my internship, but everything after college I 234 00:14:41.399 --> 00:14:43.799 was fired from. So so do you did you? Did you like take 235 00:14:43.840 --> 00:14:46.799 that on as your failure, or did you just think like that this is 236 00:14:46.840 --> 00:14:50.840 just bad, you know, like bad collaboration or whatever, like how do 237 00:14:50.919 --> 00:14:54.879 you view that? So, like each one has its own story of whose 238 00:14:54.879 --> 00:14:58.960 fault. I think it would be the first one, probably my fault, 239 00:14:58.039 --> 00:15:03.440 for but also like this. So it's corporate. America is a tough place 240 00:15:03.480 --> 00:15:07.440 to work and so if you're not into the politics stuff, it can be 241 00:15:07.559 --> 00:15:11.759 difficult when you don't want to play those kind of games. But when I 242 00:15:11.799 --> 00:15:16.399 first started to even know about corporate politics, so it was more like I 243 00:15:16.519 --> 00:15:18.840 each time I got fired in the book, what I was going to do 244 00:15:18.919 --> 00:15:20.360 is, each time I got fired is like what I did wrong. But 245 00:15:20.399 --> 00:15:24.679 then what I also thought the employer could have done better to make it so 246 00:15:24.759 --> 00:15:28.759 that I wasn't let go, because I just never bad in terms of an 247 00:15:28.799 --> 00:15:33.840 employee. You know, like I make amazing sell spreadsheets. I just accept. 248 00:15:33.879 --> 00:15:35.840 I decided going to get better at the software, not play the politics 249 00:15:35.840 --> 00:15:41.000 game. But you can't not do that. And then also, I'm from 250 00:15:41.039 --> 00:15:43.960 Boston and we just we sound. The closer we are to you, the 251 00:15:45.000 --> 00:15:48.519 more we drop her tone and drop how much of a facade or putting on. 252 00:15:48.519 --> 00:15:52.720 So I might say something like that's the worst idea had ever heard, 253 00:15:52.759 --> 00:15:56.360 and it's like you're not the worst, but that idea is let me gear 254 00:15:56.480 --> 00:16:00.720 fired Bin, get yourself out of here. You're the word reason and I 255 00:16:00.879 --> 00:16:03.720 haven't said anything like that level. But the point was, I'm not I 256 00:16:03.759 --> 00:16:07.440 wouldn't hide my feelings. I'm not going to. Yeah, we tend to 257 00:16:07.480 --> 00:16:11.039 go along with it. And each time I got fired, so like six 258 00:16:11.080 --> 00:16:15.480 times. So like here's work me and home me, two different people. 259 00:16:15.480 --> 00:16:19.240 I'd just pretend to like sports and stuff and whatever whatever made me, you 260 00:16:19.320 --> 00:16:23.279 know, fit in like eas time I got fired, I became my real 261 00:16:23.320 --> 00:16:26.559 self and then now I'm just myself all the time. You know, it 262 00:16:26.600 --> 00:16:30.600 took me six times to go. I'm maybe I shouldn't be incorporate America because 263 00:16:30.600 --> 00:16:34.200 they don't won't want to let me stay. Yeah, really. So, 264 00:16:34.279 --> 00:16:37.720 honestly, you know what? I think it's interesting about this. Man, 265 00:16:37.759 --> 00:16:41.240 I kind of share a similar a similar process, a similar story, because 266 00:16:42.039 --> 00:16:45.840 there's just places where I just didn't fit. I'm like, man, it 267 00:16:45.879 --> 00:16:48.360 was great opportunities, so amazing opportunities. I mean I worked to this one 268 00:16:48.360 --> 00:16:55.639 place, amazing opportunities, great people, super amounts of faun really vibrant. 269 00:16:55.679 --> 00:16:57.759 But Dude, I was just miserable and it just didn't work. You know, 270 00:16:57.759 --> 00:17:00.600 it's just like, man, I don't enjoy this, you guys don't 271 00:17:00.679 --> 00:17:03.720 enjoy this. Let's just draw the line to sand and be friends, but 272 00:17:03.799 --> 00:17:07.279 walk away. But I think so many times we've in our system that we 273 00:17:07.440 --> 00:17:12.440 grew up in, especially in the United States, is like go to school 274 00:17:12.480 --> 00:17:15.720 but your head to the ground. You know. So your desk and raise 275 00:17:15.759 --> 00:17:18.799 your hand when you're asked. Do what you're told, do all these fifteen 276 00:17:18.799 --> 00:17:22.000 steps and then do that for twelve years, get out, go to college 277 00:17:22.000 --> 00:17:26.240 for four more years, spend a hundred grand and go get a job, 278 00:17:26.279 --> 00:17:29.160 put your tie on and go sit down to what you're told and raise your 279 00:17:29.200 --> 00:17:33.440 hand. And I think that one. I won't get into it too much, 280 00:17:33.480 --> 00:17:34.680 but you know, I get into it. I think this system is 281 00:17:34.839 --> 00:17:38.079 is pretty flawed, pretty messed up, and I will do everything I can 282 00:17:38.119 --> 00:17:41.599 to protect my child from being subject to that, you know, to that. 283 00:17:42.519 --> 00:17:45.200 Do you feel like that's the same for you, man? Do you 284 00:17:45.240 --> 00:17:48.960 feel like that you were kind of that outside dude, like through school, 285 00:17:48.079 --> 00:17:52.079 or was this just it when you started doing career stuff? So I was 286 00:17:52.119 --> 00:17:53.160 amazing in school, by the way, and also I have them an MBA, 287 00:17:53.319 --> 00:17:56.599 so I have a masters in business, but I'm still paying off and 288 00:17:56.640 --> 00:17:59.160 I don't think it's worth it. So I'm kind of on the same page 289 00:17:59.200 --> 00:18:00.720 with you for a lot of it, but I'm going to tell you why. 290 00:18:00.759 --> 00:18:04.480 Because my Stepdad, I was grown up, he would do hot our 291 00:18:04.640 --> 00:18:08.799 roofing in the summer and then he would be plowing in the winter because I 292 00:18:08.839 --> 00:18:15.559 was living in Boston. So for the seasons he did tons of manual labor 293 00:18:15.599 --> 00:18:18.880 and I was like can I like physically can't do that. So he always 294 00:18:18.880 --> 00:18:23.839 told me you either pay now and play later, or play now and pay 295 00:18:23.960 --> 00:18:26.720 later. And he said he played when he was younger. He didn't do 296 00:18:26.799 --> 00:18:33.279 school work, he just messed around and so he then had to pay for 297 00:18:33.319 --> 00:18:37.279 it once you grew up. He told me if I had paid and did 298 00:18:37.279 --> 00:18:41.440 my school everything, and I can play later. And then I graduated and 299 00:18:41.480 --> 00:18:45.519 everything. I'm like, what the why am I not playing? Do we 300 00:18:45.599 --> 00:18:48.640 never get to play? And it's like, Oh, no, work for 301 00:18:48.640 --> 00:18:52.119 forty years or whatever, and I'm like, Whoa, where's the play at, 302 00:18:52.160 --> 00:18:55.559 you know? And and so my first childhood I got fired for playing 303 00:18:55.559 --> 00:18:59.240 a video game, actually at the company, but that was a kpmg where 304 00:18:59.240 --> 00:19:02.759 I was an auditor. And, like you were saying, so like when 305 00:19:02.759 --> 00:19:04.319 you're an auditor, by the way, no one wants you there. The 306 00:19:04.400 --> 00:19:08.279 company you're auditing doesn't want you there. I don't want to be there. 307 00:19:08.440 --> 00:19:11.279 So why do I want to go somewhere where they don't even want me to 308 00:19:11.319 --> 00:19:15.400 be there? And then in then reoking future the partners there till ten pm 309 00:19:15.400 --> 00:19:18.880 a night. Still. That's the future. That's the goal. I'm like 310 00:19:19.000 --> 00:19:23.480 this is something's willy will I black here. And also I learned none of 311 00:19:23.519 --> 00:19:29.039 the skills I needed in college to do is. I got like one excel 312 00:19:29.119 --> 00:19:30.680 class and it was a barely an ex cell class, and I do ninety 313 00:19:30.759 --> 00:19:33.960 nine percent of my work and excels. I was like, that's why you 314 00:19:33.960 --> 00:19:37.799 even started teaching it in like this is insane. So I did it all 315 00:19:37.839 --> 00:19:40.079 for free to I was like, I paid so much money, I didn't 316 00:19:40.119 --> 00:19:44.240 get what I needed here. Everybody just for free take all this stuff because 317 00:19:44.319 --> 00:19:47.440 you should learn it, and I didn't want to have like a gap. 318 00:19:47.440 --> 00:19:52.720 Hey Gate got a gobs here. She's shot you out, man saying hey, 319 00:19:52.039 --> 00:19:56.079 you to live streams one day. Now this is only this is the 320 00:19:56.119 --> 00:19:59.880 second of what three or four you're doing? How many I'm doing? And 321 00:20:00.079 --> 00:20:03.599 the next one's not live. It's my own failure. Guy Podcast were recording. 322 00:20:03.640 --> 00:20:06.680 And then the other one isn't live, but it is six people at 323 00:20:06.680 --> 00:20:11.160 a bar in Lawrence, Kansas live. So it's like six mics into a 324 00:20:11.519 --> 00:20:15.240 no way six and six people at a bar live streaming. No Way. 325 00:20:15.319 --> 00:20:18.680 That's going to go south at all. Not a chance. It's funny is 326 00:20:18.680 --> 00:20:22.000 that there's no background noise and then they add bar background noise, but it's 327 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:25.880 a little too loud. I was like you drop that done a bit, 328 00:20:25.960 --> 00:20:30.359 but it's fun. It's a it's I hadn't ever done a live one. 329 00:20:30.480 --> 00:20:34.079 So it's yes, and they did every Wednesday and its nearby, so that's 330 00:20:34.119 --> 00:20:37.759 cool. Gotta try to. I was a guest last time. I'm try 331 00:20:37.759 --> 00:20:40.519 to get become regular on the yeah, but Goby, you're following me around. 332 00:20:40.519 --> 00:20:41.559 I love it. Yeah, but I was on with Seb and he 333 00:20:41.559 --> 00:20:45.079 did mention the roadcaster pro or to. Write. Goby, did he say 334 00:20:45.119 --> 00:20:48.559 he bought it? Do you remember? God, I don't know. I 335 00:20:48.559 --> 00:20:52.519 don't know if gotty did. I don't know. Oh, can goby, 336 00:20:52.640 --> 00:20:56.119 if the other guy on the Stream I bought it the road cast pro to, 337 00:20:56.839 --> 00:20:57.960 I mean if some man, I'd love to know where he bought it 338 00:20:59.000 --> 00:21:00.920 from. Because you were like I get this news. I'm like, this 339 00:21:00.000 --> 00:21:03.160 is no way I know any news and I just heard it from the lake. 340 00:21:03.200 --> 00:21:07.039 Well, well do, let's get let's get back to your failure, 341 00:21:07.079 --> 00:21:10.319 because in really I just want to kind of make a point of like I 342 00:21:10.319 --> 00:21:11.920 don't know that failure is what we think it is. Like. I think 343 00:21:11.920 --> 00:21:17.440 it is what people tell us it is, but oftentimes I don't feel like 344 00:21:17.480 --> 00:21:21.359 a failure from having multiple jobs, because I did take a piece from each 345 00:21:21.400 --> 00:21:26.240 one of those things and implement it into my life. But the thing is 346 00:21:26.519 --> 00:21:29.920 real quick is you for the fear of the fear of failure is what it 347 00:21:29.960 --> 00:21:33.839 is. It's like at our thing, you know, the fear of the 348 00:21:33.839 --> 00:21:36.200 thing. I have. Fear is fear itself, because we're so scared to 349 00:21:36.240 --> 00:21:40.400 do anything that we don't do things because we might fail, and that's like 350 00:21:40.440 --> 00:21:42.440 a permanent mark on who we are or whatever. But if you have a 351 00:21:42.440 --> 00:21:45.880 growth mindset, the book mindset by Carl Dak is great and part of what 352 00:21:47.079 --> 00:21:49.720 helped me unlock like the stuff that made me look at failure not as a 353 00:21:49.720 --> 00:21:56.000 bad thing is like you fundamentally can change everything about yourself. So wide judge 354 00:21:56.039 --> 00:22:02.319 yourself permanently for something you're doing when you're just learning, you know. Yeah, 355 00:22:02.799 --> 00:22:04.559 I agree with that a hundred percent. So what is the situation where 356 00:22:04.559 --> 00:22:07.319 it's like a real failure? Because I feel like the only real failure is 357 00:22:07.359 --> 00:22:10.440 me. Go on, Hey, I'm going to wait, I'm going to 358 00:22:10.480 --> 00:22:15.400 walk this tight rope cross Grand Canyon with no harness, no safety in and 359 00:22:15.480 --> 00:22:18.279 I just fall to my death. Like. I think that's like a pretty 360 00:22:18.279 --> 00:22:21.799 good here's a here's what I would say. Is like you cannot deny that, 361 00:22:22.240 --> 00:22:25.039 or I would not argue with what I'm about to say. In any 362 00:22:25.079 --> 00:22:29.160 situation that I know of, is that if going back in time, you 363 00:22:29.319 --> 00:22:33.960 wouldn't do it again. If you could go back, you would choose not 364 00:22:33.000 --> 00:22:34.920 to do it. That's got to be a failure. It's got to be 365 00:22:34.920 --> 00:22:38.160 something you failed that you know if you want to change it, because you 366 00:22:38.200 --> 00:22:41.759 don't know how you're going to mess up things. But the true space time 367 00:22:41.799 --> 00:22:45.359 continuing and all that Jazz, you don't. But if you really like, 368 00:22:45.359 --> 00:22:48.200 oh, that was a like it was something more immoral you did and you 369 00:22:48.240 --> 00:22:52.160 felt like gross about it or something, sure, so that's a failure. 370 00:22:52.279 --> 00:22:53.759 I can see her. She can see doing that. I could see doing 371 00:22:53.799 --> 00:22:56.920 that, but I don't know that. But I'm with you, man. 372 00:22:56.079 --> 00:23:00.079 I do think a lot of people maybe they look back and they go, 373 00:23:00.279 --> 00:23:03.559 man, I screw this up and then they don't take steps to do anything 374 00:23:03.559 --> 00:23:07.680 else in the future or maybe they're clean slate, you know whatever. And 375 00:23:07.680 --> 00:23:11.440 then he still don't take any risk in the future. Were second one failure, 376 00:23:11.519 --> 00:23:12.680 okay, maybe I can do it again, like two, three. 377 00:23:12.759 --> 00:23:15.000 Then they're like, I don't want to do the thing ever again like this 378 00:23:15.720 --> 00:23:21.160 an especially like podcasting. True, for a long time there's your no listeners, 379 00:23:21.200 --> 00:23:22.359 you know, for a long for a long time you're talking to the 380 00:23:22.440 --> 00:23:26.440 void and you got to just get comfortable with that, because a lot of 381 00:23:26.480 --> 00:23:29.799 people that's why some many podcasts failed, because people just give up. They 382 00:23:29.880 --> 00:23:33.000 think it'll never you know, I can't do this, I can't keep facing 383 00:23:33.000 --> 00:23:37.160 this amount of failure. But you know, if you change the way you 384 00:23:37.319 --> 00:23:40.480 view things or the goals you set, like I try to make my goals 385 00:23:40.480 --> 00:23:44.079 all about how many podcast episodes I do, not holy downloads they get, 386 00:23:44.160 --> 00:23:47.599 so that, yeah, as long as I'm doing them, I'm accomplishing the 387 00:23:47.640 --> 00:23:51.880 goal. If they get a thousand, four, thousand, two donalds, 388 00:23:51.880 --> 00:23:53.759 it doesn't matter. A year in my podcast of still getting one download a 389 00:23:53.799 --> 00:23:59.440 day and then I finally popped up. But it's like yeah, most people 390 00:23:59.440 --> 00:24:03.079 give up before that point and sometimes you should get out. Give up if 391 00:24:03.079 --> 00:24:04.960 you got about it. Give if you get something that solid and you think 392 00:24:06.000 --> 00:24:10.640 it'll work. You know, sticking with it is something that rewards you because 393 00:24:10.680 --> 00:24:12.480 of a not a lot of people do that kind of thing. So in 394 00:24:12.599 --> 00:24:17.000 order to have a failure, you got to have a metric of success. 395 00:24:17.119 --> 00:24:19.720 Right. So what is so I think now the real failure is just is 396 00:24:19.799 --> 00:24:26.359 not doing something that you know you should do out of fear of not succeeding. 397 00:24:26.440 --> 00:24:30.599 Because even if you I don't care how much you don't succeed. Yes, 398 00:24:30.720 --> 00:24:33.839 not failing a long learning, but it's discovery. Yeah, absolutely. 399 00:24:33.960 --> 00:24:37.440 So, okay, if we agree on that, then, because I think 400 00:24:37.480 --> 00:24:41.039 a lot of people view failure as the lack of success. It's like, 401 00:24:41.119 --> 00:24:42.519 well, I didn't reach it, but then you then you get it. 402 00:24:42.559 --> 00:24:45.279 Really kind of gump come back, you know, specially as a creator, 403 00:24:45.319 --> 00:24:48.359 this is what the shows all about, is creating and creating daily and different 404 00:24:48.400 --> 00:24:52.680 perspectives. So it's like, how do I pull back the curtain a little 405 00:24:52.720 --> 00:24:56.240 bit and go? But what is success like? What is success for a 406 00:24:56.240 --> 00:25:00.519 podcast? I mean I have this podcast creating daily. Maybe we get, 407 00:25:00.599 --> 00:25:03.880 you know, if we get five, six people watching it live or or 408 00:25:03.880 --> 00:25:07.400 ten people across multiple platforms. I'm like dude, I'm stoked, man. 409 00:25:07.400 --> 00:25:11.160 That's ten people, like that's cool. If they walked right in my office 410 00:25:11.240 --> 00:25:14.920 right now, we wouldn't fit. I got a small office. And then 411 00:25:14.960 --> 00:25:18.839 if it gets downloaded ten, two thousand and fifteen times, I'm stoked on 412 00:25:18.880 --> 00:25:19.519 it. I'm like God, this is great. Well then I have a 413 00:25:19.519 --> 00:25:25.599 fishing podcast. It does twentyzero downloads and views every single month and I'm still 414 00:25:25.599 --> 00:25:30.720 just as stoked on creating daily numbers. Is I am the fishing podcast number. 415 00:25:30.720 --> 00:25:33.480 How do you what's your where do you get your happiness from there? 416 00:25:33.480 --> 00:25:37.680 Because that's my metric. Is like what am I happy doing? It's not 417 00:25:37.759 --> 00:25:41.400 really like how many people you know, if I give them the grocery store, 418 00:25:41.400 --> 00:25:41.839 how many people come up and say, Hey, man, I saw 419 00:25:41.839 --> 00:25:45.119 you on the fishing podcast, like that doesn't matter to me. It matters 420 00:25:45.160 --> 00:25:49.240 to me like the feeling I get afterward after this interview, when I'm like, 421 00:25:49.359 --> 00:25:52.799 Dude, I'm going to be ziinged up ready to rock, you know, 422 00:25:52.799 --> 00:25:59.000 because I love doing this stuff. So so remind me of one of 423 00:25:59.039 --> 00:26:03.200 my biggest failures and spent some real talk about it yet that I haven't really 424 00:26:03.200 --> 00:26:07.559 talked about. So it's and it's to the first time, the second time 425 00:26:07.720 --> 00:26:11.720 I've ever been recognized publicly as being the failure guy. So it was the 426 00:26:11.720 --> 00:26:15.039 second time someone goes hey, are you the failure guy? You know one 427 00:26:15.079 --> 00:26:18.200 person. The first person was someone who lived in the apartment complex. I 428 00:26:18.200 --> 00:26:22.240 had had it on my license plate and my bump or sicker. So like 429 00:26:22.319 --> 00:26:25.440 that was that made sense. The next one I was at a bar in 430 00:26:25.480 --> 00:26:27.119 downtown Kansas City and they were like are you the failure guy? And I'm 431 00:26:27.160 --> 00:26:30.880 like you don't know who I am, so what do you how do you 432 00:26:30.920 --> 00:26:34.880 know, like who sent you? Like I got not thrilled. I was 433 00:26:34.920 --> 00:26:40.160 like where, I think Saxes, I swear, and they said you, 434 00:26:40.160 --> 00:26:42.480 you're the one to crush in my car last year, and so this car 435 00:26:42.519 --> 00:26:47.640 is no is no longer. It's total. Twice I got total of the 436 00:26:47.680 --> 00:26:52.119 hailstorm and then I also crashed it into a parked car and it was her 437 00:26:52.200 --> 00:26:56.079 parked car and she was a bartender to rand, a bar downtown, and 438 00:26:56.160 --> 00:27:00.160 I happened to be a friend. was late, so I went to in 439 00:27:00.240 --> 00:27:03.039 place, popped in and she told me she was the one who got hit. 440 00:27:03.079 --> 00:27:06.039 So, by the way, she only spent eight hundred alls on our 441 00:27:06.039 --> 00:27:10.519 car. Originally she got forty five hundred bucks from insurance. I convinced them 442 00:27:10.519 --> 00:27:12.119 that wasn't my fault, even though I hit a parked car at three am 443 00:27:12.200 --> 00:27:19.200 on a Saturday wearing pink pants and a failure license plate. It was not 444 00:27:19.240 --> 00:27:23.160 my fault, according to the public record. Oh my gosh, no way, 445 00:27:23.279 --> 00:27:26.799 but they're there. Went my car and that's why I'm in Kansas City 446 00:27:26.839 --> 00:27:30.119 because I literally crash landed here and I had my stuff was spread all over 447 00:27:30.240 --> 00:27:36.880 Kansas, kind of like one moving or whatever. I had a multiple priest 448 00:27:36.920 --> 00:27:40.400 fulls that were spread across, you know, different hotels and stuff. And 449 00:27:40.440 --> 00:27:42.920 then that press I hit two weeks prior. I hit it with a deer 450 00:27:44.000 --> 00:27:47.920 with it. And then, this is why negative manifestation definitely think. And 451 00:27:48.079 --> 00:27:49.640 and then I had fallen asleep while driving in and hit that parked car, 452 00:27:49.759 --> 00:27:52.799 but I said I had avoided another car that was coming at me. I 453 00:27:52.839 --> 00:27:56.759 decided to hit the parked car instead of that was my logic. I had 454 00:27:56.799 --> 00:27:59.680 to think real quick. So when you say, you know, I don't 455 00:27:59.680 --> 00:28:02.680 know if that's like on a record. Like hopefully nobody in Kansas City's like, 456 00:28:02.799 --> 00:28:06.160 Oh really, this is the real story was bringing this guy. I've 457 00:28:06.200 --> 00:28:08.759 said it a few times. So very good it do I being the ass? 458 00:28:10.000 --> 00:28:12.200 Yeah, it'll come. Five people is Never gonna get me. So 459 00:28:12.279 --> 00:28:15.519 Dow do you keep saying this were dislike phrase, negative manifestation. What do 460 00:28:15.559 --> 00:28:21.160 you mean by that? So people say it, and you a lot of 461 00:28:21.200 --> 00:28:23.400 times to talk about positive manifestation. So like secret and stuff like that, 462 00:28:23.440 --> 00:28:26.160 where you have a vision board, you think about all the good things you 463 00:28:26.160 --> 00:28:30.680 want and you track that. And so by putting failure on my license plate, 464 00:28:30.759 --> 00:28:36.440 the joke is that neg manifestation like a self fulfilling prophecy. Like you 465 00:28:36.440 --> 00:28:41.279 put the failure out there on this car and then it failed miserably, like 466 00:28:41.680 --> 00:28:44.920 hit that deer. By the time want to hit the deer, my front 467 00:28:45.000 --> 00:28:48.240 right door, my driver set door, wouldn't open, so I had to 468 00:28:48.359 --> 00:28:51.079 recline the seat all the way back and do like a summersault at the back 469 00:28:51.160 --> 00:28:53.759 left window door. And that was when I first met like some of the 470 00:28:53.759 --> 00:28:56.960 people, and you're out here. So I just looked at your total jackass 471 00:28:57.519 --> 00:29:02.160 and the failure plate. It just it all went together really well and it 472 00:29:02.279 --> 00:29:07.000 seemed like that car was destined for failure based on but I don't know how 473 00:29:07.079 --> 00:29:08.880 much of it. So like what they're saying is that the more negativity you 474 00:29:08.920 --> 00:29:12.359 focus on or put out there, that you attracted to yourself. And so 475 00:29:12.440 --> 00:29:17.480 if I had put success on my license plate, maybe I wouldn't have crashed. 476 00:29:17.480 --> 00:29:19.400 It would be the idea of someone who believes a lot in positive or 477 00:29:19.400 --> 00:29:25.160 negative manifestation, but I believe it in the sense of the more you focus 478 00:29:25.160 --> 00:29:26.720 on something negative. So what I'm actually trying to just take the sting out 479 00:29:26.720 --> 00:29:30.960 of the word. Everyone hates this word so much, saying yeah, I 480 00:29:30.960 --> 00:29:33.119 don't have that relationship with it with a lot of people. Go, go, 481 00:29:33.319 --> 00:29:37.880 no, I don't like that word. We'll call it a mistake or 482 00:29:37.920 --> 00:29:41.319 we'll call it a learning thing or whatever, and I guess that's the point. 483 00:29:41.400 --> 00:29:44.279 It's this is not a final destination. This is just part of the 484 00:29:44.319 --> 00:29:48.240 journey. But we got to be comfortable with okay, N I feel like 485 00:29:48.240 --> 00:29:51.960 a feller. You know you'll have those moments. Yeah, man, okay, 486 00:29:52.000 --> 00:29:53.359 so I get where you're coming from now, you know, I think 487 00:29:53.440 --> 00:29:56.519 I was probably with everybody else from like wow, this guy put a tag 488 00:29:56.559 --> 00:30:00.359 on his cars. It's failure, not because I'm like bad Juju you're going 489 00:30:00.400 --> 00:30:03.920 to wreck. But I mean I I think if you're trying to like captured 490 00:30:03.960 --> 00:30:06.359 this word and say a man, if you embrace this thing, it's going 491 00:30:06.400 --> 00:30:07.440 to happen. You're going to feel this way, you're gonna feel like a 492 00:30:07.440 --> 00:30:10.720 failure, but there's, you know, way around it, there's a way 493 00:30:10.759 --> 00:30:14.519 out of it and spend that positive message. I think it's good. Is 494 00:30:14.519 --> 00:30:18.839 that what you're doing? Or there was an unexpected amazing benefit from it? 495 00:30:18.920 --> 00:30:25.960 So exposure therapy. When you are driving a car for year and a half, 496 00:30:25.960 --> 00:30:29.079 and this is failure on it, every time someone drives by you or 497 00:30:29.079 --> 00:30:32.559 takes a picture of your license plate, whatever, you're wondering what they're thinking 498 00:30:32.599 --> 00:30:36.680 of you. So you have to focus on their judgment of you by ear 499 00:30:36.759 --> 00:30:41.519 into it. Like I'm not even thinking as Rama on the license I mean 500 00:30:41.640 --> 00:30:45.680 on my serring wheel. I'm forgetting I even have the license plate because I've 501 00:30:45.759 --> 00:30:49.279 experienced so much worrying about what people think and I'm past it. I don't 502 00:30:49.319 --> 00:30:52.079 care, you know, because I've thought about it like eight hundred times as 503 00:30:52.079 --> 00:30:55.680 people pass me in the highway. Eventually you're like, okay, well, 504 00:30:55.839 --> 00:31:00.599 no one cares about me. I've been surprised that I'd like stopped and talk 505 00:31:00.680 --> 00:31:04.079 to people. I even had a thing on my had the website failure guycom 506 00:31:04.119 --> 00:31:07.680 on the website. I said, send me the picture you took. I 507 00:31:07.720 --> 00:31:10.799 know the people taking pictures of they kept took another phones. I can see 508 00:31:10.839 --> 00:31:12.519 it. So if they took good picture, they should be able to read 509 00:31:12.640 --> 00:31:15.960 this website. They should go to the website. It's the top thing. 510 00:31:17.079 --> 00:31:21.279 was email the picture. I got one picture in like a year. I'm 511 00:31:21.319 --> 00:31:22.799 like, I would have been done that in two seconds. So it's hard 512 00:31:22.839 --> 00:31:26.039 to get people to do stuff. One day I had a phone number five, 513 00:31:26.119 --> 00:31:29.400 three, five, throw a failure on the side of my car and 514 00:31:29.440 --> 00:31:32.400 a big poster for and I had a live podcast set up going on in 515 00:31:32.400 --> 00:31:37.400 my car and nobody called all the whole time. It was like a threeday 516 00:31:37.480 --> 00:31:41.480 road trip. I was like, how can nobody does anything these days? 517 00:31:41.680 --> 00:31:44.359 Is What I learned. So, like with digital marketing stuff, you got 518 00:31:44.359 --> 00:31:48.480 a really want to fail your guy to have their phone number. I mean 519 00:31:48.480 --> 00:31:52.480 maybe that's the thing, like I'm not gonna call some good dude that's like 520 00:31:52.839 --> 00:31:56.240 I'm the failure guy. Please call me withou hang out like no, dude, 521 00:31:56.559 --> 00:31:59.519 no, but I didn't have any problem with it, and I also 522 00:31:59.559 --> 00:32:01.000 didn't you feel it as a failure. I made a giant posterboard, a 523 00:32:01.039 --> 00:32:02.920 tape to my car like it did. Did a bunch of work. I 524 00:32:02.920 --> 00:32:06.400 made a phone number, I all sorts of things. So hold I had 525 00:32:06.480 --> 00:32:08.039 this set up, the set up ready to go. None called it, 526 00:32:08.079 --> 00:32:12.119 and that's a big deal. I get a question for you. If you're 527 00:32:12.200 --> 00:32:15.200 driving down the interstate, whatever that is for you, forty or whatever, 528 00:32:15.319 --> 00:32:22.359 goes out west and you see a guy who's got a giant poster board marked 529 00:32:22.480 --> 00:32:27.400 up with call me, you know whatever podcasts, this or that are you 530 00:32:27.480 --> 00:32:30.319 in? Are you that person is calling? I feel like ninety percent. 531 00:32:30.359 --> 00:32:35.079 I am like, I'm not calling, I'm I'm befriending this person. I'm 532 00:32:35.119 --> 00:32:39.000 definitely getting involved, but it's so I'm my own. I'm the only one 533 00:32:39.000 --> 00:32:43.079 whould follow my own stupid ideas. I got it up stick of the head. 534 00:32:43.319 --> 00:32:45.000 Honk if you're a big failure, and I thought I was going to 535 00:32:45.039 --> 00:32:49.440 get so many hanks, but it was a honk to turn it likes stopped 536 00:32:49.480 --> 00:32:52.160 people from road or aging because they didn't want to be a big failure. 537 00:32:52.200 --> 00:32:53.880 I was like, I was like I've only got two hanks and like two 538 00:32:53.880 --> 00:33:00.519 months, like brick checking. People like nobody likes eailier. This realized people 539 00:33:00.519 --> 00:33:02.599 hate it that much. I was like no one. I was like it 540 00:33:02.680 --> 00:33:06.160 right, say I'm the world number one failure. There's no competition because no 541 00:33:06.200 --> 00:33:07.640 one wants to be that. So, yeah, that's why I chose that 542 00:33:07.720 --> 00:33:12.599 title. And then I realize, while people really really hate it, so 543 00:33:12.720 --> 00:33:15.960 we buy houses. That's good example of a company that like types of random 544 00:33:15.000 --> 00:33:17.920 those OA. But I thought if I if I'm if I'm the world's number 545 00:33:17.920 --> 00:33:22.519 one failure, you can't think I'm talking down to you. My advice has 546 00:33:22.559 --> 00:33:25.880 to be coming from below you right, all right, okay, I mean 547 00:33:25.920 --> 00:33:30.240 this make the other thing. Yeah, it's like everybody's social media is their 548 00:33:30.319 --> 00:33:32.680 highlight real it's not what's really happening. And so it's true. I want 549 00:33:32.680 --> 00:33:37.440 successful people to talk about the bad times because the good times I want you 550 00:33:37.440 --> 00:33:40.839 to hit success. You don't want to. You know, hey, so 551 00:33:42.039 --> 00:33:44.400 look all the things I messed up with. It's usually like, oh, 552 00:33:44.480 --> 00:33:46.880 finally I did it. I don't want to fail anymore. But it's important 553 00:33:46.920 --> 00:33:50.119 that people know that's part of the process. You have to do that to 554 00:33:50.160 --> 00:33:52.319 succeed. Yeah, man, I definitely agree with you there. Man. 555 00:33:52.319 --> 00:33:55.400 I think there's in all the things that we do right special as creators, 556 00:33:55.480 --> 00:34:00.720 like live streamers, podcasters, youtube, especially, whatever. It's like. 557 00:34:00.759 --> 00:34:02.200 This is a lot of trial and error and if anybody's like, yeah, 558 00:34:02.200 --> 00:34:05.440 I get it all, figured it out, here's my you know, guarantee 559 00:34:05.480 --> 00:34:09.119 system to work for you as a creator, I cold bs because I'm like, 560 00:34:09.119 --> 00:34:14.199 man, every person, even if I have an idea and I'm using 561 00:34:14.239 --> 00:34:17.639 someone's format or someone's using my format, it's like they're still going to figure 562 00:34:17.639 --> 00:34:21.400 out who they are within that world, and I think that's what you know, 563 00:34:21.400 --> 00:34:24.679 we're talking about here today is like it's okay to, quote unquote, 564 00:34:24.679 --> 00:34:28.760 fail, it's okay to, you know, fall on your face, it's 565 00:34:28.760 --> 00:34:30.599 okay to whatever, because you're going to come out of that and you're going 566 00:34:30.639 --> 00:34:34.440 to grow and you're going to be a better person, you're going to know 567 00:34:34.519 --> 00:34:37.280 something you didn't know and hopefully discover yourself, you know, and that's for 568 00:34:37.320 --> 00:34:38.920 me, man, here in Puerto Rico, dude, like I'm going to 569 00:34:38.920 --> 00:34:45.039 do an episode called Dear Puerto Rico, where I just literally talk about all 570 00:34:45.079 --> 00:34:49.960 the lessons I've learned all the things that I'm now grateful for that I wasn't, 571 00:34:49.960 --> 00:34:52.360 all the things I took for grant. You know, it's like there's 572 00:34:52.480 --> 00:34:57.239 so much when you get outside of your comfort zone and you go, you 573 00:34:57.360 --> 00:35:01.039 completely leave that it, you know, ultimately, and people think I live 574 00:35:01.079 --> 00:35:04.719 in pair, you know, and it is paradise, but paradise isn't and 575 00:35:04.719 --> 00:35:07.199 I said that the other day on a you know, Linkedin or whatever, 576 00:35:07.280 --> 00:35:13.960 like Ige is do peered. Ice Isn't a place, it's a perspective and 577 00:35:14.079 --> 00:35:16.880 I've learned that while being in Puerto Rico, and so I love that. 578 00:35:17.000 --> 00:35:21.119 You know, you are the guy who's saying, Hey, let's not let's 579 00:35:21.159 --> 00:35:23.519 not take the F word and make it bad, but let's figure out how 580 00:35:23.519 --> 00:35:27.079 do we how do we leverage it? How we take that energy, that 581 00:35:27.159 --> 00:35:31.159 negative energy in leverage it for ourselves, not just saying well, I'm not 582 00:35:31.199 --> 00:35:34.760 failing and learning, but really say okay, cool, I failed, I 583 00:35:34.840 --> 00:35:37.760 screwed up, I didn't do this right, I messed up, but now 584 00:35:37.760 --> 00:35:39.320 how do I learn from that and pivot? So I like it. Man, 585 00:35:39.320 --> 00:35:43.719 you're kind of hitting this subjection head on, which is pretty cool. 586 00:35:43.840 --> 00:35:45.480 Well, I needed to do it to figure all was wrong, my myself 587 00:35:45.599 --> 00:35:47.920 getting fired all the time, like if I'm smart and I can do my 588 00:35:49.000 --> 00:35:52.559 job right, like what's going on, like what's what's my problem? I 589 00:35:52.559 --> 00:35:57.000 got want to face that and for me it had to be self deprecating and 590 00:35:57.039 --> 00:36:00.679 labeling myself negatively rather than, you know, doing the imposter syndrome thing and 591 00:36:00.960 --> 00:36:06.599 puffing out my feathers. I wanted to be like I honestly don't even brag 592 00:36:06.639 --> 00:36:08.119 about something unless I'm like in the top one percent of it, you know, 593 00:36:08.159 --> 00:36:12.800 because I know how much serious to know about things, and so therefore 594 00:36:12.800 --> 00:36:15.559 I have like a healthy amount of skepticism about my own ability and things like 595 00:36:15.639 --> 00:36:22.599 that. So I do teach Microsoft ex cell. I'd say I'm in I've 596 00:36:22.679 --> 00:36:24.960 only met a few people who I think are better than me, but I'm 597 00:36:25.000 --> 00:36:30.320 sure there's a decent amount. But, like I said, are a topic. 598 00:36:30.559 --> 00:36:35.800 Is there a competition for Microsoft Exale? So they give out these Microsoft 599 00:36:35.840 --> 00:36:39.320 all this. Look, Microsoft does. This is a MD award from Microsoft, 600 00:36:39.360 --> 00:36:43.079 who makes the product. So I wanted four years these. They give 601 00:36:43.119 --> 00:36:46.719 you these if you win it. Oh, there, but it's four thousand 602 00:36:46.760 --> 00:36:52.079 people across all of this software. So not four thousand cell people. But 603 00:36:52.239 --> 00:36:55.679 four thousand whatever Sol word, powerpoint, whatever it is, per year. 604 00:36:55.719 --> 00:36:59.440 Our awarded that thing and I probably could have kept going with it, but 605 00:36:59.480 --> 00:37:02.519 I didn't provide enough info or whatever. You know, there's like you got 606 00:37:02.519 --> 00:37:06.559 to show how much stuff you've done throughout the time. But at least they 607 00:37:06.639 --> 00:37:09.079 did a four year stint of getting the awards from the people make it. 608 00:37:09.119 --> 00:37:14.519 And also, that's pretty dumb. Like investipedia lists me as one of the 609 00:37:14.559 --> 00:37:16.360 six best excel classes of two thousand and twenty two, and I I know 610 00:37:16.400 --> 00:37:20.119 they just roll for the year. I saw in two thousand and twenty one 611 00:37:20.239 --> 00:37:23.119 was the same list. But Hey, I don't mind because it's it's dope 612 00:37:23.119 --> 00:37:25.679 say. But I don't use these things. I don't use my mailing less, 613 00:37:25.679 --> 00:37:30.400 I don't use the good press. I just I've had such a version 614 00:37:30.400 --> 00:37:34.840 of sales, like my first eight years was all free and most of my 615 00:37:34.920 --> 00:37:37.440 all my free stuff still on there. And I barely point to your other 616 00:37:37.440 --> 00:37:40.719 guy likes promotes making money. But I'm still I still struggle with it a 617 00:37:40.719 --> 00:37:45.199 lot because I don't like doing things from the sake of money. Yeah, 618 00:37:45.199 --> 00:37:49.280 well, I think it's you know what I and I guess I'm going to 619 00:37:49.400 --> 00:37:51.960 I'm going to put I'm an not push back. I'm going to ask this 620 00:37:52.079 --> 00:37:55.599 question. Are you are you not asking for the sale because you're afraid of 621 00:37:55.599 --> 00:38:01.480 failure in sale? No, no, dum ahead that I can. I 622 00:38:01.480 --> 00:38:06.440 think what it is is so like, for example, the excel thing. 623 00:38:06.440 --> 00:38:07.719 When I was doing it for free, I was having fun. It's like 624 00:38:07.719 --> 00:38:12.880 when it goes from a hobby to the work thing, poposes did comments, 625 00:38:13.039 --> 00:38:15.599 he's good. I get hates to the coach me. So I mean, 626 00:38:15.599 --> 00:38:21.320 it makes sense, but I gotta really I gotta dig into the fact that 627 00:38:21.480 --> 00:38:23.400 what I do with excel is not boring. I say it's boring all the 628 00:38:23.400 --> 00:38:28.599 time because that's a general perspective on it, but there's a lot of people 629 00:38:28.599 --> 00:38:30.440 who geek out on you know, and I got to like be more embracing 630 00:38:30.559 --> 00:38:35.119 of it. But the point is, I I've DIS kind of I've put 631 00:38:35.199 --> 00:38:37.599 that in the boring spot of my own life. So I've, I call 632 00:38:37.960 --> 00:38:40.639 this all podcrastinating from the thing I should be doing, which is the business, 633 00:38:40.679 --> 00:38:44.719 because it could be doing well if I was spending more time doing I've 634 00:38:44.719 --> 00:38:47.440 actually got interns and stuff working on and trying to make it better, but 635 00:38:47.800 --> 00:38:52.800 it's hard once money gets introduced. It's like me and you're hanging out, 636 00:38:52.800 --> 00:38:54.239 you know, we're having fun, we're having a good conversation. This third 637 00:38:54.239 --> 00:38:58.360 guy money comes in and then he just makes it weird. He's like doing 638 00:38:58.400 --> 00:39:01.039 all this weird stuff and makes is act weird or towards each other, and 639 00:39:01.119 --> 00:39:06.760 for me it's like I haven't figured out how to get past that mentally, 640 00:39:06.760 --> 00:39:10.719 because I think growing up broke or a lower middle class family who money was 641 00:39:10.719 --> 00:39:14.800 always a stressful subject, you know. Yeah, so it's like I don't 642 00:39:14.880 --> 00:39:19.599 like bringing up money with people in general, and especially when it's that they 643 00:39:19.599 --> 00:39:22.400 have paying me of thing much value than they're paying me. You know, 644 00:39:22.400 --> 00:39:28.159 I've done all the mental gymnastics to get path why I shouldn't care, but 645 00:39:28.280 --> 00:39:34.280 still, when something is done just without it being financial, for me I 646 00:39:34.320 --> 00:39:37.960 have more fun and it's more so I need. What I usually need is 647 00:39:37.000 --> 00:39:43.320 some other person to make money also, if then I can focus on their 648 00:39:43.480 --> 00:39:46.519 benefit from it. That so I might even make a fictional person in my 649 00:39:46.519 --> 00:39:50.840 head now named Ralpho, makes ten percent every time I make money, and 650 00:39:51.000 --> 00:39:52.880 I was gonna say that way, if you need somebody to give ten percent 651 00:39:52.960 --> 00:39:57.880 to every time you make a deal, like sign me up, I'll be 652 00:39:58.000 --> 00:40:00.639 like, for sure. Creating daily brought to you by failure Guy Podcast. 653 00:40:00.840 --> 00:40:06.679 Here we go. Then go buy his exam. Course they know it's a 654 00:40:07.280 --> 00:40:08.639 I good and I think that's a part of it too, man. It's 655 00:40:08.679 --> 00:40:12.320 a part of you know, it's part of what we're talking about, is 656 00:40:12.320 --> 00:40:14.559 failure, and I think you know, people got, you know, and 657 00:40:14.599 --> 00:40:16.480 that was before I had creating daily head creating for money, and people do 658 00:40:16.639 --> 00:40:21.039 lose your mind over money. Similar to failure, right, similar to failure. 659 00:40:21.079 --> 00:40:23.199 The same, like I can't believe you're talking about failure. It's like 660 00:40:23.239 --> 00:40:27.000 I can't believe you're talking about creating for money, like you should create for 661 00:40:27.079 --> 00:40:29.480 real reason. It's create for Faun, it's create for whatever. And I'm 662 00:40:29.480 --> 00:40:32.440 like, Dude, I'm a business I'm a business guy. I'm a content 663 00:40:32.519 --> 00:40:37.360 creator who wants to create content full time and unfortunately my kid doesn't have a 664 00:40:37.400 --> 00:40:40.639 job to feed himself, you know, or my house have a job to 665 00:40:40.719 --> 00:40:44.840 pay you. So it's like, you know, that's not the reason, 666 00:40:44.920 --> 00:40:47.920 but it's like there is opportunity for content creators to make doubt, you know, 667 00:40:47.960 --> 00:40:52.239 money, but I think by probably right. So it is. It 668 00:40:52.280 --> 00:40:57.519 isn't for sure. I've sent two hundred thousand dollar quotes to companies for things 669 00:40:57.519 --> 00:41:00.000 I would do for them. But I think, meaning like I'm not uncomfortable 670 00:41:00.079 --> 00:41:04.880 with money. I actually worked with high level at companies. But I think 671 00:41:04.920 --> 00:41:10.039 the thing is associate excel so much with all those firings and those negative feelings, 672 00:41:10.039 --> 00:41:14.440 okay, that if I was making money in something else, yeah, 673 00:41:14.599 --> 00:41:16.880 it would feel more natural because I feel like I'm like got to pretend like 674 00:41:16.920 --> 00:41:21.559 I'm success guy when it's the it's helping, you know, and I can't 675 00:41:21.559 --> 00:41:22.880 talk about all the Times I've been fired, but I put them in my 676 00:41:22.960 --> 00:41:27.159 training, my acronym, and what is excel is I I are Ed, 677 00:41:27.719 --> 00:41:30.679 you know. Yeah, Sual stuff, reporting, whatever. Like. I 678 00:41:30.760 --> 00:41:35.639 use that as an acronym and try to embrace it. But it's tough because 679 00:41:36.519 --> 00:41:38.760 if I'm doing be to be stuff, I got to interact with people who 680 00:41:38.760 --> 00:41:44.760 am not, who haven't always seen how to I but I can't like judge 681 00:41:44.800 --> 00:41:47.079 them for the people I've experienced with. You know, I'm with you, 682 00:41:47.119 --> 00:41:52.679 man. I have a have a past job, career like that where I 683 00:41:52.679 --> 00:41:57.199 feel like I could be really effective in that space. But I'm just I 684 00:41:57.239 --> 00:41:59.719 have a lot of bad experience in that space. I go you know what, 685 00:41:59.760 --> 00:42:01.119 I'm just not going to go there. So I get that man, 686 00:42:01.159 --> 00:42:06.159 and that's a whole nother conversation for a different day and probably more for a 687 00:42:06.239 --> 00:42:08.519 therapist. Not Been Billy. Yeah, but it. But it is like 688 00:42:08.559 --> 00:42:10.760 the easiest way for me to make money. I should just embrace it. 689 00:42:10.840 --> 00:42:15.639 Yeah, yeah, I just got to confess a few different weird negative associations 690 00:42:15.719 --> 00:42:19.679 with money and the way I'm doing it. But I'm always giving more than 691 00:42:19.719 --> 00:42:23.079 I take. And also, like, I know, I know how much 692 00:42:23.199 --> 00:42:28.159 value you get, how much time you save. It's insane. Yeah, 693 00:42:28.239 --> 00:42:30.440 yeah, I could think my boss is seven hour thing and make it take 694 00:42:30.480 --> 00:42:35.039 fifteen minutes, but then they put six hours and forty sevenths of extra work 695 00:42:35.039 --> 00:42:37.679 on my play, even though they're paying the other guy more to the seven 696 00:42:37.679 --> 00:42:40.760 hours now, so that I'd say it'll take seven hours and then fifteen uns 697 00:42:40.800 --> 00:42:45.360 before it's do I hit my little macro or whatever, and that's you know, 698 00:42:45.679 --> 00:42:47.920 because I'm not. Why? Why not keep the time you save? 699 00:42:49.159 --> 00:42:51.840 Yeah, White You keep, you get gaining efficiency, but then they still 700 00:42:51.880 --> 00:42:54.199 get forty hours a week, you know. So all right, man. 701 00:42:54.320 --> 00:42:58.199 So I'm going to I'm going to move US along here, not that I 702 00:42:58.239 --> 00:43:01.400 have a real agenda, but I do think that we could talk, you 703 00:43:01.400 --> 00:43:05.360 know, about that corporate stuff all day. Man. I do think it's 704 00:43:05.400 --> 00:43:09.039 I do think there's stuff that happens in businesses and, you know, people 705 00:43:09.079 --> 00:43:13.360 want to position themselves to scale and that's a part of it's a part of 706 00:43:13.360 --> 00:43:15.360 my business. To It's like people are like, Dude, how can we 707 00:43:15.400 --> 00:43:19.360 don't have like ten people creating podcasts for you with you know, doing you 708 00:43:19.360 --> 00:43:22.400 know, doing your shows that are successful and just kind of copying paste in 709 00:43:22.440 --> 00:43:25.159 different areas? And it really is because I don't want to do that. 710 00:43:25.239 --> 00:43:29.239 Like I want to, you know, I want to enjoy the process, 711 00:43:29.239 --> 00:43:31.400 I want to enjoy the creative process. I don't want to manage a team 712 00:43:31.440 --> 00:43:36.000 of people and I don't want to scale this whole thing at this moment. 713 00:43:36.119 --> 00:43:37.599 Now, I could come to it. It's like a backback, it's like 714 00:43:37.599 --> 00:43:40.719 a backburner plan because you can always fall back on doing the normal thing, 715 00:43:40.800 --> 00:43:44.039 right. Yeah, so, yeah, absolutely, man. It's not. 716 00:43:44.039 --> 00:43:45.880 And it's not really like, oh well, I fail, or will I 717 00:43:45.920 --> 00:43:51.079 feed those people's families or whatever? But and it does stem back to ways 718 00:43:51.119 --> 00:43:55.159 I was treated in that corporate workplace. So that's it. Is Pretty interesting 719 00:43:55.199 --> 00:43:59.840 thing there, man. So Do I love this conversation been I think we 720 00:43:59.840 --> 00:44:04.559 could take it a million different ways. But what is like? Tell me 721 00:44:04.599 --> 00:44:08.000 about a time that you really like. We're talking about embracing failure, so 722 00:44:08.559 --> 00:44:12.719 tell me a story or tell me the time that you really and I'm going 723 00:44:12.719 --> 00:44:15.239 to use the quotations fail because I'm still struggling to see that. Okay, 724 00:44:15.280 --> 00:44:17.840 here we go. So I've got a new word. I've got a new 725 00:44:17.880 --> 00:44:22.079 word that I've come up with, or it's not a new word. It's 726 00:44:22.159 --> 00:44:25.519 Yo Jimbo, which is one thousand nine hundred and sixty one yo Jim but 727 00:44:25.679 --> 00:44:30.519 Japanese, Japanese movie. Yeah, Yo Jimbo, and so that the it's 728 00:44:30.519 --> 00:44:35.920 a verb that I'm real I'm creating this now as a verb. So Yo 729 00:44:36.039 --> 00:44:42.880 jimboing something means to it's basically the art of embracing failure and making something more 730 00:44:42.880 --> 00:44:47.920 beautiful. So a failure happens, right, so let's say you have a 731 00:44:49.000 --> 00:44:52.000 hat. You're at a half tank of gas, right, you hit a 732 00:44:52.039 --> 00:44:58.639 failure and it depletch you to zero. Yo jimboing would be go full gas 733 00:44:58.639 --> 00:45:01.159 tanks. So look, do something even more extreme that you wouldn't have done 734 00:45:01.199 --> 00:45:05.480 if you hadn't a failed to make it even better. So an example would 735 00:45:05.519 --> 00:45:09.159 be on this massive road trip that eventually ended in my murdering my car, 736 00:45:10.039 --> 00:45:15.599 I had been going through various states. I'm more Marie's legal somewhere. It 737 00:45:15.679 --> 00:45:21.360 isn't, and one of my failures was I had some with me and it 738 00:45:21.480 --> 00:45:24.559 was all ground up and then I spilled it all everywhere and it was a 739 00:45:24.559 --> 00:45:30.119 lot. So that was a shitty moment and it was a failure for sure. 740 00:45:30.199 --> 00:45:32.800 I mean there's no way I was looking at that as positive, you 741 00:45:32.800 --> 00:45:36.000 know, because there's a bunch of money and stuff and then like, if 742 00:45:36.039 --> 00:45:38.039 I go to the next date, it's all over the place. So the 743 00:45:38.239 --> 00:45:45.000 new jimboing that situation would be not just dealing with the fact that I also 744 00:45:45.079 --> 00:45:47.159 that, it would be getting my card detailed, because I never got my 745 00:45:47.159 --> 00:45:51.480 card detailed before, and going the other way, doing something I wouldn't have 746 00:45:51.519 --> 00:45:53.519 done if it wasn't for that failure. So like take that failure and make 747 00:45:53.559 --> 00:45:59.559 it actually something better. And there's is really cool thing in Japanese pottery called 748 00:45:59.760 --> 00:46:04.119 Kintsugie. I wrote a thing about it on Linkedin, but it's they'll take 749 00:46:04.119 --> 00:46:07.360 broken bowls, broken plates, and they'll put them back together and they put 750 00:46:07.400 --> 00:46:14.039 this gold stuff in it which fills in the cracks. But it highlights those 751 00:46:14.079 --> 00:46:20.599 imperfections and it's all about like how we are are imperfections. We should celebrate 752 00:46:20.639 --> 00:46:23.800 that and it's a cool way of like it's saying that, like it's emphasizing 753 00:46:23.840 --> 00:46:28.440 the bad parts of what it is, because that's what makes us who we 754 00:46:28.480 --> 00:46:31.559 are, you know, like what makes me. Honestly, part of what 755 00:46:31.679 --> 00:46:36.440 helped most is growing a beard. If anyone doesn't grow a beard hasn't tried 756 00:46:36.480 --> 00:46:39.559 grown a beard. That's one of my tips of success, honestly, because 757 00:46:39.599 --> 00:46:45.400 to grow beard, grow beard. Up until pandemic I didn't grow beer at 758 00:46:45.400 --> 00:46:47.840 all. I look like Mr Clean and I didn't have any confidence whatsoever, 759 00:46:49.239 --> 00:46:52.800 I thought, because I couldn't grow up here, I couldn't grow down here. 760 00:46:52.880 --> 00:46:54.679 Yeah, and I never wanted to go between that that bad state. 761 00:46:54.800 --> 00:46:58.719 But then when masks were a thing, I was like, okay, let's 762 00:46:58.760 --> 00:47:00.480 get the shot and my ex of time liked it. But then once I 763 00:47:00.519 --> 00:47:05.039 grew beard, I was way more comfortable on camera. I usually was like 764 00:47:05.280 --> 00:47:07.360 just doing screen recordings of excel stuff and I wouldn't want to be on camera 765 00:47:07.400 --> 00:47:09.880 and I was like why do they want to see me or whatever, but 766 00:47:10.000 --> 00:47:15.320 the beard helps. So if you've not tried it, it was a shot. 767 00:47:15.360 --> 00:47:17.119 Have you tried it? Oh, dude, I can grow beer. 768 00:47:17.159 --> 00:47:20.360 Man. You see this. I thought, as I said to myself, 769 00:47:20.360 --> 00:47:22.679 from not just can't till I was thirty five. Well, I can't. 770 00:47:22.760 --> 00:47:25.079 Yeah, I'm thirty five. I'm like, dude, I couldn't grow one, 771 00:47:25.199 --> 00:47:28.360 and then it just me to death anyway. So I'm like, you 772 00:47:28.400 --> 00:47:30.920 know what, I'm just going to cut it, give it a shot. 773 00:47:30.960 --> 00:47:34.719 I might get up shot. I'm not promising. I looked at Peach Fuzz 774 00:47:34.800 --> 00:47:37.920 mcgoo for a long time and it just all those a little patchy. But 775 00:47:37.960 --> 00:47:40.679 you give it a few goes and you hate it actually works out, I 776 00:47:40.679 --> 00:47:45.000 mean or not, and you find out. But if you mightn't look at 777 00:47:45.079 --> 00:47:46.599 me that I could have had one ten years ago and I'm just mad at 778 00:47:46.639 --> 00:47:51.599 myself that I did not have a beard the whole time. That's a failure. 779 00:47:51.639 --> 00:47:53.039 I would have went back another beard if I could go back. That's 780 00:47:53.039 --> 00:47:57.320 see, I'm saying if you go back and change something. That's true, 781 00:47:57.400 --> 00:48:00.239 because you know, and I love that you know, you get a focus 782 00:48:00.280 --> 00:48:02.239 on the positive. And this happened last week and people that you know listen 783 00:48:02.280 --> 00:48:06.639 to the show or whatever, they they heard the story last week of where 784 00:48:06.679 --> 00:48:09.360 I was selling a car here in Puerto Rico. So I cleaned it up, 785 00:48:09.360 --> 00:48:13.320 clean it up nice, got it all looking spiffy, parked it out 786 00:48:13.320 --> 00:48:16.039 where I always park it for the last ten months. Somebody comes by, 787 00:48:16.079 --> 00:48:21.559 gets in, it robs it steals the Stereo, stills five hundreds with scooby 788 00:48:21.719 --> 00:48:24.639 or just nuts, scooby gear, snorkel gear, steals my chairs, like 789 00:48:24.800 --> 00:48:30.280 my fold of chairs, like, Dude, come on and it's so but 790 00:48:30.440 --> 00:48:31.920 you know, if I had to trace my steps, I don't know exactly, 791 00:48:32.079 --> 00:48:35.840 unless they're really good lock pickers. I left the door unlock because there 792 00:48:35.880 --> 00:48:38.400 wasn't a smash window, so I left the back hatch. I'm a hundred 793 00:48:38.400 --> 00:48:42.079 percent sure I left it unlocked, because it's a paint in the butt or 794 00:48:42.320 --> 00:48:45.039 was to open and close and lock and unlocking all that kind stuff. I'd 795 00:48:45.079 --> 00:48:47.679 like to have to turn the key and like beat the side of the thing 796 00:48:47.719 --> 00:48:52.719 to get the mechanism to turn to unlock the back hatch, and so, 797 00:48:52.800 --> 00:48:55.599 you know, ticked off for probably like two hours, just like losing my 798 00:48:55.599 --> 00:48:58.559 mind, like, dude, what's going on? You know, I'm trying 799 00:48:58.559 --> 00:49:00.920 to sell the car, so now you need to sell without a stereo and 800 00:49:00.000 --> 00:49:04.679 see all this kind of stuff. So the cops roll up. They're like 801 00:49:04.760 --> 00:49:07.840 yeah, basically like go jump off bridge, like we can't help you. 802 00:49:07.039 --> 00:49:09.039 I didn't say Joep off bridge, but they're like, you know, you're 803 00:49:09.079 --> 00:49:12.440 not going to be here in a week, like there's no sense of us 804 00:49:12.480 --> 00:49:15.039 going after this. However, one of the cops end up buying the car, 805 00:49:15.199 --> 00:49:20.599 which was pretty cool, and so it's like what seemed like a big 806 00:49:20.719 --> 00:49:25.480 ginormous pain in the butt actually turned out to be something super easy, and 807 00:49:25.480 --> 00:49:30.519 we went to the lawyer's office to do all the paperwork yesterday. No money 808 00:49:30.559 --> 00:49:31.840 out of pocket. I guess it was a you know, one of those 809 00:49:31.880 --> 00:49:35.880 bro Deals or whatever, or it's like all right, cool, man, 810 00:49:36.000 --> 00:49:37.239 nothing, no more my okay, no money out of pocket, money in 811 00:49:37.280 --> 00:49:39.599 my pocket, leg let's go. You know, it's take it. And 812 00:49:39.679 --> 00:49:45.079 so I think oftentimes, man, we probably is. People get in the 813 00:49:45.079 --> 00:49:49.639 situation where it's like the failure, the quote unquote failures here, and what 814 00:49:49.760 --> 00:49:53.679 I learned from that experience was like take a deep breath and just wait for 815 00:49:53.719 --> 00:49:57.360 the good thing to come on the other side of it, because it's coming, 816 00:49:57.400 --> 00:50:00.760 you know. And I've seen a lot in my life where, and 817 00:50:00.800 --> 00:50:05.239 I haven't done that, I've been really reactive to stuff when I really just 818 00:50:05.280 --> 00:50:08.320 need to like, don't do anything, just chill, let the cards fall 819 00:50:08.480 --> 00:50:12.599 me. We know, you know where they will. And this happened in 820 00:50:12.599 --> 00:50:15.119 a situation couple weeks ago to over a financial deal that was going, I 821 00:50:15.159 --> 00:50:20.360 thought was going sideways and I was about to kind of hit it head on 822 00:50:20.400 --> 00:50:22.360 and also, you know what, I'm just going to take my hands off 823 00:50:22.400 --> 00:50:23.840 of it, I'm going to relax, I canna say anything, I can 824 00:50:23.880 --> 00:50:28.400 to do anything, and it ended up working itself out for the benefit of 825 00:50:28.519 --> 00:50:30.519 both parties. And so yeah, man, I like it. Dude. 826 00:50:30.519 --> 00:50:35.239 I think that's a good takeaway from the show. Is like, Dude, 827 00:50:35.360 --> 00:50:37.880 just because you what you're saying is like it's going to turn around, like 828 00:50:37.960 --> 00:50:40.639 you've seen good come out of all the bad stuff, out of all the 829 00:50:40.719 --> 00:50:45.199 quotes failures. A good thing to do is when you're when you do succeed 830 00:50:45.400 --> 00:50:47.280 or have any kind of success in the future, think about the things you 831 00:50:47.360 --> 00:50:52.880 messed up earlier that you didn't mess up this time because of those you know 832 00:50:52.119 --> 00:50:55.800 true, be like yeah, Oh, I I did this big deal and 833 00:50:55.840 --> 00:51:00.599 I didn't mess up this one part because I had gotten this screwed over on 834 00:51:00.639 --> 00:51:01.480 a previous deal, or whatever the thing is. You know, you like 835 00:51:02.400 --> 00:51:07.280 celebrate in the success that failure that led you there, because a lot of 836 00:51:07.280 --> 00:51:10.800 times we forget, we're just oh, we're the man, everyone's now finding 837 00:51:10.800 --> 00:51:14.679 out because we're succeeding. But really we should think, okay, well, 838 00:51:14.679 --> 00:51:17.039 you know what, what prior failures do I have to thank for this kind 839 00:51:17.039 --> 00:51:21.159 of thing?
