Light. 10 00:01:04.079 --> 00:01:14.480 Christians. What is that? As we all the Caribbean handkerchief all a while, 11 00:01:14.159 --> 00:01:18.439 a lot, as a taxi man told you, guys, Bob, 12 00:01:19.959 --> 00:01:26.640 believe this is look like snow and design. Yeah, I got the odd 13 00:01:26.840 --> 00:01:36.560 white that the white are being tourist of. I've got and I'm a little 14 00:01:36.640 --> 00:01:38.719 abstract tonight, but it's interesting because we didn't plant it, folks, but 15 00:01:38.760 --> 00:01:42.239 we're all coordinated. We're wearing kind of the same views with your kind of 16 00:01:42.239 --> 00:01:51.159 cool. Listen, we need to celebrate saloon at all those because the first 17 00:01:51.719 --> 00:01:59.079 season of the entrepreneurs trip is going to be a rap at the end of 18 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:05.040 this episode and we are going to take a walk down memory lane to see 19 00:02:05.040 --> 00:02:09.479 what we talked about for the last couple of episodes and we all kind of 20 00:02:09.479 --> 00:02:14.960 came up with some takeaways to share that kind of resonated with us as hosts 21 00:02:15.000 --> 00:02:16.560 and, of course, when you're listening to this, please let us know 22 00:02:16.599 --> 00:02:22.439 what resonated with you as well. To Chris, I know that you did 23 00:02:22.439 --> 00:02:29.680 all overall season take away. What was your takeaway for season one? My 24 00:02:29.719 --> 00:02:32.240 biggest takeaway, and I started getting to the details, of going to all 25 00:02:32.319 --> 00:02:37.560 the you know, going through all the episodes again and just kind of reliving 26 00:02:37.919 --> 00:02:43.280 this trip, is experience. Really, what it came down to is entrepreneurship 27 00:02:43.400 --> 00:02:47.960 is hard. We are all clearly, you know, having our days of 28 00:02:49.360 --> 00:02:52.960 struggle. We have our war stories, are our scars, you know, 29 00:02:52.960 --> 00:02:57.360 our battle wounds. But what I have found is that, you know, 30 00:02:57.439 --> 00:03:00.840 unders entrepreneurship really can be a community unity. It really can be a place 31 00:03:00.840 --> 00:03:06.520 where like minded people can or even, you know, different mind of people 32 00:03:06.560 --> 00:03:09.759 can come together share ideas, learn from each other and, you know, 33 00:03:09.800 --> 00:03:15.479 through this podcast, I think you know, we've connected learned certainly about each 34 00:03:15.479 --> 00:03:19.639 other's past, our journeys has entrepreneurs also, you know, some of our 35 00:03:20.000 --> 00:03:24.599 our viewers and commenting on the feeds and stuff like that. And what I've 36 00:03:24.639 --> 00:03:28.879 really found is, you know, as much as we've had these struggles and 37 00:03:28.919 --> 00:03:32.680 we've we've tripped, we've we fallen, we've stumbled, but we, you 38 00:03:32.719 --> 00:03:36.439 know, continue to pick ourselves back up and as long as you can still 39 00:03:36.479 --> 00:03:39.080 wake up in the morning and enjoy what you do, have some passion, 40 00:03:39.199 --> 00:03:44.120 still be excited to get out there and do what you love and do this 41 00:03:44.159 --> 00:03:47.599 thing that you've gotten entrepreneurship, you know, to do that at the end 42 00:03:47.639 --> 00:03:50.360 of the day, it is all worth it. You know, we talked 43 00:03:50.400 --> 00:03:53.520 about the the finish line, but it is, you know, the journey 44 00:03:53.560 --> 00:03:57.759 along the way and and I think you know, we're just happy to be 45 00:03:57.840 --> 00:04:01.039 on this ride here and I think season one has been just a really cool 46 00:04:01.120 --> 00:04:04.520 ride so far and excited to, you know, go on to season two 47 00:04:04.560 --> 00:04:08.439 and beyond. But but I'm just learning that, you know, if you 48 00:04:08.479 --> 00:04:12.280 if you do reach out, you know, entrepreneurship can feel very lonely, 49 00:04:12.319 --> 00:04:15.319 but it certainly doesn't have to be so. Leverage or networks, leverage or 50 00:04:15.360 --> 00:04:20.519 friends, your social groups, and you know, keep marching on. Can 51 00:04:20.519 --> 00:04:30.680 I get me loving this trip with you guys like I could do with anybody 52 00:04:30.680 --> 00:04:43.360 else? Likewise? Likewise, it's been awesome. Imagine anybody else so right 53 00:04:43.480 --> 00:04:46.639 in? I think so. I think we should have with serious one and 54 00:04:47.079 --> 00:04:50.959 I think we have some things from a Trystan here to lead us off here. 55 00:04:51.519 --> 00:05:19.879 Yeah, that's take memory lane. This is what's up, guys. 56 00:05:19.920 --> 00:05:26.920 What's up, and thank you for taking a trip with us. That was 57 00:05:26.920 --> 00:05:32.480 wrong and you got a shot closers and you can see that. Forty minutes. 58 00:05:36.800 --> 00:05:41.240 I would for thirty o'clock. It will talk about I put more ship. 59 00:05:41.279 --> 00:05:46.279 Will show you why. I mean, I remember when we were having 60 00:05:46.319 --> 00:05:54.879 this conversation and I'll always let's talk about perspective for a second. I always 61 00:05:54.879 --> 00:05:59.240 look at Shaun as somebody I always has it together, somebody that's fair less. 62 00:05:59.480 --> 00:06:06.079 Oh, you welcome. Pose know why you laughing, welcomposed and and 63 00:06:06.879 --> 00:06:11.399 just so all around up to say, role model. Tell you the truth. 64 00:06:11.639 --> 00:06:16.319 And when we're having a conversation about a big being an entrepreneur, and 65 00:06:16.360 --> 00:06:21.680 how it is that you started it. That's what resonated with me and that's 66 00:06:21.680 --> 00:06:26.839 what made me choose. It will show us who we are, because you 67 00:06:26.879 --> 00:06:30.519 are up and everyone else, you've been doing what it is that you loved 68 00:06:30.560 --> 00:06:34.360 and you're going and wasn't doing it for yourself. And if it wasn't for 69 00:06:34.360 --> 00:06:39.360 your daughter's challenge, I'm not sure if you would have had a sky group. 70 00:06:40.040 --> 00:06:45.800 You know. So I don't know explain. It was just like amazing 71 00:06:45.879 --> 00:06:49.360 to seeing that that whole story come together and showing us who we really are, 72 00:06:49.399 --> 00:06:56.120 because again, you have your journeys, you have your trials or tribulations, 73 00:06:56.199 --> 00:07:00.600 and it shows us that you're not a quitter. It shows us that 74 00:07:00.199 --> 00:07:03.560 you're not a selfish person. You weren't someone I was like, Oh, 75 00:07:03.600 --> 00:07:06.439 I'm gonna do this and I'm doing this for myself. It was signed. 76 00:07:06.480 --> 00:07:11.399 I was like, you know what, I'll do this if you're doing this 77 00:07:11.439 --> 00:07:14.839 with me. So in that way it shows that you were a teacher to 78 00:07:14.839 --> 00:07:19.199 a certain extent, because now you're bringing your daughter along and building and brand 79 00:07:19.240 --> 00:07:26.079 and building a legacy. You know, so whant to pick that. That's 80 00:07:26.120 --> 00:07:30.480 what it is that resonated with me. Also, like pick the whole bunch 81 00:07:30.519 --> 00:07:32.120 of video clips. I'm going to tell you really quick. For those of 82 00:07:32.199 --> 00:07:38.079 you I had a hear was like Saland this fear. You know what it 83 00:07:39.480 --> 00:07:44.600 season one, episode three. You started nineteen thirty seconds. Is Only about 84 00:07:44.600 --> 00:07:46.720 a twenty two clip, but that's what I want you to go back and 85 00:07:46.720 --> 00:07:49.879 that's where it is. Shalani spoke about her few and that's what it is 86 00:07:49.920 --> 00:07:54.759 that I thought about when I was like, entrepreneurship will show you who you 87 00:07:54.800 --> 00:08:00.120 are, show you how passionate you are, show your compassion towards other people, 88 00:08:00.160 --> 00:08:07.600 SOCI Landa House. Entrepreneurship showing you who you are. Listen, it's 89 00:08:07.680 --> 00:08:13.600 interesting hearing you talk about it because, as put together as I might seem 90 00:08:13.600 --> 00:08:20.360 on the outside, I'm a hot freaking mess. Okay, I'm just going 91 00:08:20.399 --> 00:08:22.759 to be real, like there's so and I think part of it is that 92 00:08:22.800 --> 00:08:28.639 I tend to focus on what I had not yet accomplished, and I think 93 00:08:28.680 --> 00:08:31.840 what I learned to do in this process of doing the podcast with my great 94 00:08:31.879 --> 00:08:37.080 brothers here and the team, is that I really need to spend more time 95 00:08:37.200 --> 00:08:41.639 appreciating her. Far We've come, you know. So it showed me to 96 00:08:41.679 --> 00:08:48.559 be a lot more grateful for the achievements and the Camaraderie and the relationships and 97 00:08:48.720 --> 00:08:54.720 the lessons that we've learned along this journey and focus less on the hot mess. 98 00:08:54.759 --> 00:09:00.480 I feel that I am. That's where the feeling. It's part of 99 00:09:00.519 --> 00:09:05.840 the success. Part Right, and that's why that's what this really short with. 100 00:09:05.960 --> 00:09:07.519 The failures a part of success, just you know, a lot of 101 00:09:07.519 --> 00:09:13.039 people feel the different points we start overhere. We've just work on different things. 102 00:09:13.039 --> 00:09:16.320 So if it's not going right, don't stress it. It's a part 103 00:09:16.360 --> 00:09:20.159 of the process. Chris, this one's for you. Start a business when 104 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:24.879 you can no longer afford not to. I believe that ball came from Shelanda. 105 00:09:24.159 --> 00:09:28.559 It's not not mistaken. However, just hitting your story about all the 106 00:09:28.639 --> 00:09:35.440 documentary, having your daughter and starting your own business while having a new born. 107 00:09:35.519 --> 00:09:39.919 Tell us about that. I mean, yeah, starting my business when, 108 00:09:41.639 --> 00:09:45.879 again, I had a kind of came to a stopping point in my 109 00:09:45.879 --> 00:09:50.399 my ninety five job. Hurrican Maria had just hit. You know, my 110 00:09:50.399 --> 00:09:54.639 wife and I had just got married and and decided to, you know, 111 00:09:54.960 --> 00:09:56.559 take the plunge. It wasn't an easy decision, but it was just life. 112 00:09:56.559 --> 00:10:01.159 Circumstances kind of said, you know, it's now or never, and 113 00:10:01.519 --> 00:10:03.759 here point now, with my you know, my daughter here a few years 114 00:10:03.840 --> 00:10:07.639 later, entrepreneurship is just that much more important to me and to hopefully show 115 00:10:07.720 --> 00:10:11.960 her the lessons of you know, you can do it if you if, 116 00:10:11.080 --> 00:10:18.039 if you can dream it. So I'll transition us in to keep us honest 117 00:10:18.080 --> 00:10:24.840 on our time. YEA, to your season one suitcase story. Takeaway here, 118 00:10:24.919 --> 00:10:26.679 Tristan. So let's get into a little video. Here was some me. 119 00:10:33.480 --> 00:10:35.679 So for me and starting my business, Sonny, he was a first 120 00:10:35.679 --> 00:10:41.519 person I went to to even see if I should take that leap of you 121 00:10:41.559 --> 00:10:48.240 know, basically going full time into entrepreneurship and leaving my my day job, 122 00:10:48.399 --> 00:10:52.679 and and she's been that support for me, you know, throughout my undrewcreneer, 123 00:10:52.679 --> 00:10:54.840 you a journey where I remember a couple of years ago, and somebody 124 00:10:54.879 --> 00:11:00.279 loves to tell a story, but it was like first quarter and I was 125 00:11:00.440 --> 00:11:03.120 like, no, money's coming in, I don't know what's you were little 126 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:13.159 sitting your fucking mind. Yeah, just say it was. Basically it was 127 00:11:13.200 --> 00:11:16.960 a conversation. I mean my conversation with some me was a conversation. After 128 00:11:16.159 --> 00:11:20.159 I had with my wife, which was, you know, either got to 129 00:11:20.159 --> 00:11:24.919 start making money or you got to find a real job. Yeah, so 130 00:11:24.000 --> 00:11:26.120 I called saw me and I was like, somebody helped me not find a 131 00:11:26.120 --> 00:11:35.919 real job, but it's so sweet. We met for coffee and and she's 132 00:11:35.960 --> 00:11:37.919 like, yeah, you're struggling in the first quarter here, aren't you? 133 00:11:37.919 --> 00:11:41.279 And I'm like yeah, how did you know? She's like, cuz everybody 134 00:11:41.279 --> 00:11:43.240 struggles in the first quarter. I guess that's just when business, you know, 135 00:11:43.320 --> 00:11:46.159 companies, are are starting to redo their budget and everything. And I 136 00:11:46.200 --> 00:11:50.279 was like, Oh, so, so it's going to get better like soon, 137 00:11:50.399 --> 00:11:52.159 and she's like yeah, the second quarter. And and sure enough, 138 00:11:52.240 --> 00:11:58.679 that was the mentorship I needed, because otherwise I was, if I didn't 139 00:11:58.679 --> 00:12:00.840 know that there was hope at the aoral my lock into the tunnel. I 140 00:12:00.919 --> 00:12:05.080 was about to potentially thrown them. Only that I told you, J now 141 00:12:05.120 --> 00:12:07.639 you have to prepare. Yeah, like you know, this Yeng here for 142 00:12:07.759 --> 00:12:13.000 next year for exactly three now, right, so you're not tight. And 143 00:12:13.120 --> 00:12:16.639 so what happened? I think it was this week. When we spoke earlier 144 00:12:16.840 --> 00:12:20.200 week when I got back from vacation, I said, so has this quarter? 145 00:12:20.320 --> 00:12:30.360 He's like it's fine, we're good sor that was a lot of matron 146 00:12:30.440 --> 00:12:33.679 to see that flow. Did you see that? I like it. I 147 00:12:33.720 --> 00:12:39.720 like it. I have a lot of takeaways from that. I have a 148 00:12:39.720 --> 00:12:45.200 lot, a lot of takeaways. One our network. You guys might speak 149 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:48.080 to this later on, but just on network, having friends, having on 150 00:12:48.480 --> 00:12:52.399 other entrepreneur friends that could serve as mentors to a song, you know, 151 00:12:54.039 --> 00:13:00.759 learning about those quarters. I remember she spoke about doing our research. I 152 00:13:00.799 --> 00:13:03.600 Staw business because some of thecings were seasonal. And it was just such a 153 00:13:03.639 --> 00:13:09.080 pleasure having Sam here with us, because we've all worked with Sammy in some 154 00:13:09.279 --> 00:13:15.720 capacity and just seeing Sammy being she was like it, we don't have more 155 00:13:15.759 --> 00:13:20.679 shit together. You know, it was just amazing this and even watching that 156 00:13:20.799 --> 00:13:24.559 video I don't think I had less head nods than the first time. When 157 00:13:24.600 --> 00:13:28.840 we're actuallytion in it is like that. That's true. That's true. Yep, 158 00:13:30.039 --> 00:13:35.159 and because she keeps it real, man, gives it to you straight. 159 00:13:35.399 --> 00:13:39.360 No chaser that I ask on such a big decision. I was like, 160 00:13:39.399 --> 00:13:45.559 you know, should I quit my job and into this with no you 161 00:13:45.600 --> 00:13:48.679 know, no planner or anything like that? And Yeah, sure enough, 162 00:13:48.360 --> 00:13:50.799 but that's you know, we we've talked about this. That's that's the trust 163 00:13:50.840 --> 00:13:56.480 that you build with with fellow entrepreneurs and mentors. And you know, through 164 00:13:56.559 --> 00:14:01.159 some me I met Shelanda, through Chalanda I met you. Trusting, like 165 00:14:01.279 --> 00:14:05.799 it's it just, you know, acting wrong. Yeah, the mentorship keeps 166 00:14:05.799 --> 00:14:09.799 on to get that keeps on getting. Yeah, yeah, absolutely. What 167 00:14:09.919 --> 00:14:13.840 else? Other thing for that? It was crazy. I was thinking about 168 00:14:13.000 --> 00:14:20.440 something else and I pick that because Chris is like our dam are Gurgle. 169 00:14:24.159 --> 00:14:28.519 Was I can't even quite remember right now. But what was it? Because 170 00:14:28.519 --> 00:14:31.200 we said even fail it was a partisan that's what it was. Is the 171 00:14:31.279 --> 00:14:35.720 way that you started, when you're like it was this do a dime moment. 172 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:41.919 Yep, you know either we're going to do it or you know that 173 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:46.480 Fay was not an option. And as you came in and you're like look, 174 00:14:46.720 --> 00:14:50.080 it's not working out. That's the failure part. What we're trying to 175 00:14:50.120 --> 00:14:54.480 do within the first segment. It wasn't working out the way. Let me 176 00:14:54.519 --> 00:14:56.600 not say it was working out. It wasn't working out the way that we 177 00:14:56.799 --> 00:14:58.879 wanted it to. Is Not to say that your business is not working. 178 00:15:00.159 --> 00:15:01.799 Sometimes Yep, but sometimes I have to sit back and look at it and 179 00:15:01.919 --> 00:15:03.720 say, well, you know what, is not working the way that I 180 00:15:03.919 --> 00:15:09.480 wanted to. However, it is still functioning, you know, and it's 181 00:15:09.559 --> 00:15:13.159 something that you were passionate about. You know, because at this point in 182 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:18.360 time, when I look to when I look at you, we did the 183 00:15:18.440 --> 00:15:22.759 reverse when I had my son, I found a job. HMM. Yeah, 184 00:15:22.279 --> 00:15:30.279 daughter, your passion. And that's just it. Any take aways from 185 00:15:30.320 --> 00:15:33.840 that? Janana? I have so many takeaways. I mean, I think 186 00:15:33.960 --> 00:15:39.600 in series one, where we're talking about your unique entrepreneurship trip, it's like, 187 00:15:39.919 --> 00:15:43.879 you know, what are the characteristics of being an entrepreneur? When art 188 00:15:43.039 --> 00:15:46.480 is a good time to become an entrepreneur? Is there ever really a good 189 00:15:46.559 --> 00:15:54.399 time to become an entrepreneur? And you know, it's a matter of doing 190 00:15:54.519 --> 00:16:00.799 it when you've created the right time to do it, because nobody can tell 191 00:16:00.840 --> 00:16:04.759 you when it's the right time. You know, using christmasy example, most 192 00:16:04.799 --> 00:16:08.039 people would have probably said that's the worst possible time for you to start a 193 00:16:08.159 --> 00:16:14.440 business. If I hold you know, but sometimes it's when your back is 194 00:16:14.559 --> 00:16:18.759 up against the wall that you you're creative in your nimble and you and you 195 00:16:18.000 --> 00:16:23.279 find your ways to get work. So yeah, absolutely, and of course, 196 00:16:23.519 --> 00:16:27.519 I just adorseem that's our sister from another mister and she's, you know, 197 00:16:29.519 --> 00:16:33.399 full of Golden Nuggets of advice because she's been in business for such a 198 00:16:33.519 --> 00:16:37.919 long time. Those of us who are starting out and we're like in our 199 00:16:37.960 --> 00:16:41.840 first three years or first five years, were aspiring to get to where she's 200 00:16:41.879 --> 00:16:45.399 at, Yep, and beyond. So yeah, it's good to have people 201 00:16:45.679 --> 00:16:51.399 at various stages of entrepreneurship that you can touch base with, you know, 202 00:16:51.559 --> 00:16:56.399 bounce ideas off of of rely on learn from their experiences to kind of shorten 203 00:16:56.440 --> 00:17:02.120 your learning curve. So part of the PODCAST. Yeah, I in for 204 00:17:02.279 --> 00:17:07.720 something real bick to is just that she's done it authentically and and in morally 205 00:17:07.799 --> 00:17:11.759 and ethically correct and you know, I think for you know, for all 206 00:17:11.799 --> 00:17:17.000 of us, at something that we aspire to it because there's different there's easy, 207 00:17:17.000 --> 00:17:19.680 their shortcuts to success sometimes, but it's not worth it when you are 208 00:17:19.759 --> 00:17:25.559 selling your soul to do so. Yeah, absolutely, Chris, got thirty 209 00:17:25.559 --> 00:17:30.200 more in the clash? Are you? How are you actus? So I 210 00:17:30.319 --> 00:17:36.400 want you, guys just see something we started. You guys know my slanda 211 00:17:36.440 --> 00:17:38.680 a lot. I really Myer S Lana and it who shall and I've met 212 00:17:38.839 --> 00:17:42.559 Chris. I'm within our short period of time. Chris, you were really 213 00:17:42.640 --> 00:17:45.680 might talking for this portion, because I have learned a lot from me, 214 00:17:47.240 --> 00:17:51.279 just seeing that we're in the same field and I'll approaches were different, but 215 00:17:51.400 --> 00:17:55.400 our passions are similar and really quick. This was one thing that I really 216 00:17:55.440 --> 00:18:00.200 wanted to guys get and Chris said this. He who says it can be 217 00:18:00.319 --> 00:18:03.480 done should not interrupt the person doing it, and that's how it is. 218 00:18:03.480 --> 00:18:07.680 I really wanted to end a segment those words from Chris. I appreciate you, 219 00:18:07.839 --> 00:18:11.279 Chris. Thank you so much. I really, I really enjoy taking 220 00:18:11.400 --> 00:18:15.400 this journey with you. Likewise, like dirty, I do have to atred 221 00:18:15.480 --> 00:18:25.039 that to Confucius, but for Jurney, talking like the journey season one. 222 00:18:26.200 --> 00:18:30.200 That is that is I think. When we start I was like all so 223 00:18:30.440 --> 00:18:33.680 nervous and I'm so nervous about it, but I don't think now that it's 224 00:18:33.759 --> 00:18:41.200 so much being nervous, it's I'm really hard spun about this because this is 225 00:18:41.759 --> 00:18:45.599 this is our first milestone. You know, this is not the season. 226 00:18:45.720 --> 00:19:00.559 We started season was recording our first episode, our first celebration, Bilestone, 227 00:19:00.599 --> 00:19:14.200 a party. Awesome, all right, Chris, drink. Look like there's 228 00:19:14.240 --> 00:19:25.079 a straight rub I got. I got a nice cub in the Chris luky 229 00:19:25.559 --> 00:19:30.960 gotta say hydrated, right, or I think that hi, either of those 230 00:19:30.960 --> 00:19:37.440 are hydrating. But all right, without further ado, before before the libations 231 00:19:37.519 --> 00:19:45.119 kick in, Le Kick off here to series to where Shelanda is going to 232 00:19:45.160 --> 00:20:07.680 give us a couple takeaways. I gotta laugh because when you look at the 233 00:20:07.720 --> 00:20:15.599 screen Justin had three bullets and I have my three thousand words. No, 234 00:20:18.000 --> 00:20:19.640 I can't help it, but you know, a lot of them. Makes 235 00:20:19.640 --> 00:20:23.640 you feel any better? I you sent yours to me first, so I 236 00:20:25.119 --> 00:20:36.160 copied your your template. Yeah, really talked about whether entrepreneurs are born or 237 00:20:36.279 --> 00:20:40.519 made, whether it's nature or nurture, and really, regardless of wood side 238 00:20:40.519 --> 00:20:44.559 of the debate, you land, becoming an entrepreneur really is a lifestyle choice 239 00:20:44.880 --> 00:20:48.160 with a distinct mindset that allows someone to take the risk in hope of reaping 240 00:20:48.279 --> 00:20:56.000 the rewards. Right. We talked a lot about the internal landscape and the 241 00:20:56.160 --> 00:21:00.920 external world in this series and you know, I kind of meant alluded to 242 00:21:00.960 --> 00:21:03.960 it a little bit when Tristan was talking about how put together I am. 243 00:21:04.279 --> 00:21:10.240 Like my outside might look put together, but internally, there's a lot of 244 00:21:10.319 --> 00:21:15.279 insecurities and doubts and concerns and all of that stuff, but I'm still hopeful 245 00:21:15.400 --> 00:21:19.759 that this entrepreneurship thing is going to work for me. So your internal world, 246 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:26.039 you know, as an entrepreneur, you're viewing your external your external landscape 247 00:21:26.079 --> 00:21:30.559 through that filter, right, and that shapes what your entrepreneurial journey would entail. 248 00:21:32.279 --> 00:21:34.480 Kind of like me focusing on what I haven't done instead of celebrating what 249 00:21:34.599 --> 00:21:40.039 we have done. And I'm going to take that perspective and look at through 250 00:21:40.119 --> 00:21:45.119 a filter of gratitude. But as as such, every entrepreneurship trip there, 251 00:21:45.279 --> 00:21:51.559 why, what, how and when is unique, right, nobody can do 252 00:21:51.680 --> 00:21:55.599 it for you. I mean we can walk alongside each other as we do 253 00:21:55.799 --> 00:22:00.079 this, but our trips really are as unique as each and every individual is, 254 00:22:00.720 --> 00:22:07.039 and so only we can really take the necessary steps for us to reach 255 00:22:07.079 --> 00:22:12.799 our destination. It truly is distinctly ours and hours alone, or yours for 256 00:22:14.119 --> 00:22:17.720 a years alone as an entrepreneur. So that was really my takeaway, you 257 00:22:17.799 --> 00:22:26.319 know, from stories to yeah, very cool, very cool. Hard on, 258 00:22:26.400 --> 00:22:32.640 mad well, I think you get a hard on the head. I 259 00:22:33.359 --> 00:22:36.359 ten foot time. You did into thirty weight you need to give up. 260 00:22:38.920 --> 00:22:42.079 I might write long that I'm not much of a talker. I am very 261 00:22:42.119 --> 00:22:49.680 sustinct to an unlackeys. Yeah, what was called out stories to is we 262 00:22:49.720 --> 00:22:55.599 are looking at the mindset, of motivations of entrepreneurship, you know, and 263 00:22:55.920 --> 00:23:00.160 the mindset of an entrepreneur. You if you're going into business, it's definitely 264 00:23:00.319 --> 00:23:04.039 different than if you were an employee. Yep, you know, we talked 265 00:23:04.079 --> 00:23:10.240 about when I was in job transition for eleven months. You're not getting that 266 00:23:10.400 --> 00:23:14.200 steady paycheck. You have to have a different mindset, you know, to 267 00:23:14.279 --> 00:23:17.279 be able to go after what it is that you want. You basically, 268 00:23:17.799 --> 00:23:21.279 if you don't hunt and you don't kill something, you don't eat. You 269 00:23:21.519 --> 00:23:30.640 EAT IE. Chris's first quarter also showed us that. It's all it's a 270 00:23:30.720 --> 00:23:36.359 right of perseverance. And I said that mindset a lot of times, like 271 00:23:37.039 --> 00:23:40.319 you're behind in the game. You know, everybody likes to see when you 272 00:23:40.400 --> 00:23:44.240 come out of here on top and you come already like you just drop thirty 273 00:23:44.680 --> 00:23:48.279 straight out your game, blowing other team out. Or realistically, sometimes you 274 00:23:48.440 --> 00:23:53.079 are the other team that somebody just dropped thirty on. Yep, they started 275 00:23:53.240 --> 00:23:57.599 quick, but they didn't paste themselves, so then they started to burn out 276 00:23:59.200 --> 00:24:02.759 the doubts. It's a kick and you got everybody else and never did it 277 00:24:02.839 --> 00:24:06.160 tell you how to do it exactly. You know, Oh wait, it 278 00:24:06.319 --> 00:24:10.680 can't do this, this work all. Look at your situation. You need 279 00:24:10.759 --> 00:24:15.920 to be the financial one of the financials, financially stable situation. This is 280 00:24:17.039 --> 00:24:19.359 not the run, but here's where it is that we have to dig deep 281 00:24:19.799 --> 00:24:25.920 and know who we are and persevere, because we know what our angles are 282 00:24:26.160 --> 00:24:30.440 and nobody can tell us what those angles are kind of what it is that 283 00:24:30.519 --> 00:24:33.079 we want to accomplish. So yeah, I mean I think it's a good 284 00:24:33.119 --> 00:24:37.160 a little bit of and we talked about, you know, the external landscape 285 00:24:37.200 --> 00:24:41.319 and sort of beginning Yang of having that network of people you can rely on, 286 00:24:41.799 --> 00:24:45.480 like like you know, I sent me for me to go and seek 287 00:24:45.519 --> 00:24:48.880 advice from, but also to realize that there are going to be people who 288 00:24:48.920 --> 00:24:52.559 are going to be, you know, saying negative things or saying things out 289 00:24:52.640 --> 00:24:57.240 of misunderstanding or their lack of understanding the situation. So you have to take 290 00:24:57.279 --> 00:25:00.359 everything with a grain of salt and follow your compass and kind of March the 291 00:25:00.400 --> 00:25:07.359 beat of your drum and take the advice when needed. So that's really liked 292 00:25:07.400 --> 00:25:12.640 about where Warren's suitcase story, because you really talks about your passion and being 293 00:25:12.720 --> 00:25:18.799 an entrepreneur and getting into business and making sure they aligned awesome. Let's kick 294 00:25:18.839 --> 00:25:30.039 that out. Have Your Business be an expression of who you are. You 295 00:25:30.640 --> 00:25:33.759 it makes it easier to to go through the challenges that you go through. 296 00:25:34.000 --> 00:25:40.920 But you also have to be mindful to not personalize if the business is failing 297 00:25:41.720 --> 00:25:45.319 or if the business has failed, it doesn't mean you have failed. It 298 00:25:45.519 --> 00:25:48.480 just probably mean there's another way. As to Christian you said, is another 299 00:25:48.559 --> 00:25:53.519 way to do this and so to to learn from the failures, that failures 300 00:25:53.559 --> 00:25:57.279 and how I tell some of my clients that failure is not your enemy. 301 00:25:57.880 --> 00:26:03.519 No, struggles, pain suffering is not your enemy. When you walk in 302 00:26:03.599 --> 00:26:07.599 your authority of who you are and your core, your pain, your misery 303 00:26:07.759 --> 00:26:11.920 or struggle is meant to serve you. But if you don't walk in your 304 00:26:11.920 --> 00:26:15.359 authority, you will begin to serve your emotions and your ego and they will 305 00:26:15.400 --> 00:26:30.519 dictate how you live your life. Wow, so beat my Christian video. 306 00:26:30.759 --> 00:26:37.039 I could play that every day as my daily motivation. No, Tristan in 307 00:26:37.559 --> 00:26:41.799 series one. Your technical way was entrepreneurship shows you who you are, you 308 00:26:41.920 --> 00:26:47.400 know, and worrying touches on that. He's like, your business really needs 309 00:26:47.440 --> 00:26:51.720 to be an expression of who you are. Yeah, we need to remember 310 00:26:52.039 --> 00:26:57.160 not to personalize it. Right, if you're feeling yeah, if your business 311 00:26:57.279 --> 00:27:02.759 is failing, it's not necessarily that you're feeling. And I tend to be 312 00:27:02.839 --> 00:27:06.000 pretty hard on myself. If things don't work out, I'd beat myself up. 313 00:27:06.839 --> 00:27:08.880 It's very hard for me to make that distinction at time. I got 314 00:27:10.119 --> 00:27:14.400 from my company and me, because you're so in it, it's so much 315 00:27:14.480 --> 00:27:18.920 a part of you, you know. So I think that that section of 316 00:27:18.079 --> 00:27:22.720 his interview really resonated me, resonated with me, when he was talking about 317 00:27:22.759 --> 00:27:29.200 the mindset and motivations of being an entrepreneur today. Definitely. Well, it's 318 00:27:29.200 --> 00:27:33.519 a little freaky about that to me is that I just made a similar comment 319 00:27:33.000 --> 00:27:45.240 and video it was like, yeah, interesting to your commentations made, but 320 00:27:45.319 --> 00:27:48.799 I know it definitely falls and I definitely wrote it as the WHO don't personalize, 321 00:27:49.480 --> 00:27:56.920 and to me it goes so what it is that we're just saying when 322 00:27:57.039 --> 00:28:03.880 you personalize? I think we personalize because we own you're the business owner, 323 00:28:03.160 --> 00:28:10.119 it's your business and you feel everything is your own. I remember sometimes we 324 00:28:10.200 --> 00:28:15.880 want through this podcast and I believe I lagged out. Something else happened and 325 00:28:15.480 --> 00:28:19.000 I don't control it in the company, but I'm here like, Damn, 326 00:28:19.200 --> 00:28:25.079 what I do? Close caps, do this, your kids get off, 327 00:28:25.119 --> 00:28:30.759 the Internet's playing anything, shut down everything own in the fact that the Internet's 328 00:28:30.880 --> 00:28:34.440 not working. And I'm like, you know what, sometimes you just have 329 00:28:34.599 --> 00:28:37.920 to look and if we let go of the things that we can control, 330 00:28:38.319 --> 00:28:41.599 like you said, and at that point we just got to persevere. You 331 00:28:41.680 --> 00:28:45.200 know, it's part of our passion. That's why I sometimes we take it 332 00:28:45.359 --> 00:28:49.400 very hard on ourselves, is because it's what we're passionate about, and so 333 00:28:49.559 --> 00:28:53.079 when somebody says we can, we just take it to heart. Night Man, 334 00:28:53.119 --> 00:28:57.480 what is I can't talk to Shan again because she says I can't do 335 00:28:57.640 --> 00:29:02.799 it. But maybe Saland is just approaching him from a different perspective and she 336 00:29:02.920 --> 00:29:07.599 doesn't understand my standpoint at this point, because when you cross her finish lines, 337 00:29:08.039 --> 00:29:12.119 a lot of the naysers are going to be there, forgetting that they 338 00:29:12.200 --> 00:29:17.559 said to me. You know what I mean. So that that when he 339 00:29:17.599 --> 00:29:22.119 said the don't personalize what gave the blues mouths for the second time that was 340 00:29:22.240 --> 00:29:25.240 just said. It was like look, you know, at the end of 341 00:29:25.319 --> 00:29:30.240 the day, you're not alone. It's not just you. There's a slander 342 00:29:30.640 --> 00:29:33.400 that rolled this boat. Chris is still rowing. It's what I'm saying. 343 00:29:33.680 --> 00:29:37.880 So if we all just continue to play apart, speak to each other, 344 00:29:37.160 --> 00:29:42.640 encourage each other, you know that we'll just be able to make more progress. 345 00:29:44.880 --> 00:29:48.319 Yeah, no, I I mean, and just here point I can 346 00:29:48.559 --> 00:29:52.519 you know, I just talked about Sammy being having done it authentically, you 347 00:29:52.559 --> 00:29:56.200 know, her entrepreneurial journey, and somebody like Warren as well. When you 348 00:29:56.880 --> 00:30:02.359 when you are living your purpose and you're, I'm authentic and and you know 349 00:30:02.440 --> 00:30:07.920 you have that dignity or that that integrity, you know people will sometimes overlook 350 00:30:08.039 --> 00:30:11.559 your, you know, quote unquote, failures or what have you, because 351 00:30:11.599 --> 00:30:15.960 of who you are and Trum I think that's one of the you know, 352 00:30:15.119 --> 00:30:18.640 most important. I mean as entrepreneur is, a lot of us have that, 353 00:30:18.720 --> 00:30:22.680 you know, create a bug word. We may have one thing that 354 00:30:22.839 --> 00:30:26.519 is kind of like our business or our main focus, but we're probably dabbling 355 00:30:26.640 --> 00:30:30.200 in other things to or have little side hustles and hobbies at the same time, 356 00:30:30.920 --> 00:30:33.960 and the way you really kind of scale yourself and your entrepreneurial vision is 357 00:30:34.079 --> 00:30:38.839 by you being true to who you are, and people will follow that. 358 00:30:40.559 --> 00:30:44.200 You know, it's its kind of branding of you know, there might be 359 00:30:44.720 --> 00:30:48.640 twenty different of the same items in the marketplace of different competitors, but the 360 00:30:48.680 --> 00:30:53.400 reason people will choose one it might be quality, but it also might be 361 00:30:53.559 --> 00:30:57.400 because they like who you are, who the person is that was representing that 362 00:30:57.559 --> 00:31:03.319 brand. So yeah, I mean it's just that think that Your Business and 363 00:31:03.559 --> 00:31:07.440 and your personal brand are kind of not mutually exclusive. You have to keep 364 00:31:10.559 --> 00:31:15.119 working on both. But a really again, leaving from your heart. Yeah, 365 00:31:15.319 --> 00:31:30.319 absolutely wasn't around. Libations are working. I just want to like the 366 00:31:30.359 --> 00:31:33.759 fatal SIP is, like, what's the One? Too many were them start 367 00:31:33.799 --> 00:31:42.839 talking gibbers. You know, we might have to get to season two real 368 00:31:42.920 --> 00:31:48.680 quick. But all right, I think it's time to get to series three, 369 00:31:49.359 --> 00:31:52.640 where we kind of talked about. You know you're in the race, 370 00:31:53.400 --> 00:31:57.640 but you have to breathe and pace yourself and that you might trip. So 371 00:31:57.759 --> 00:32:22.440 let's get into the episode titles here. All right, Fland, I told 372 00:32:22.440 --> 00:32:30.319 you I was with you with the long and all right, so let's kick 373 00:32:30.359 --> 00:32:34.200 this off here. So and series three. My takeaway was, you know, 374 00:32:34.279 --> 00:32:37.839 being an entrepreneur is like being in a marathon. You must breath and 375 00:32:37.920 --> 00:32:40.880 Pacer and pace yourself. You can't prevent tripping up every now and then, 376 00:32:42.119 --> 00:32:45.079 but you can control how you pick yourself up from that fall. We're not 377 00:32:45.200 --> 00:32:49.880 just talking about a dip in sales, we're also talking about your mental health, 378 00:32:50.079 --> 00:32:53.000 because entrepreneurial burnout is real and at the end of the day, the 379 00:32:53.119 --> 00:32:58.119 ship which is your business can't sail without its captain, and that is you 380 00:32:58.319 --> 00:33:02.400 the entrepreneur. And caring for yourself is ultimately caring for your business, because 381 00:33:02.519 --> 00:33:09.240 you are your business's greatest asset. Ralph alld Emerson said life is a journey, 382 00:33:09.480 --> 00:33:14.920 not a destination, and I attribute that to entrepreneurship as well. We 383 00:33:15.039 --> 00:33:21.279 talked about, you know, envisioning the finish line for all your onprene for 384 00:33:21.279 --> 00:33:24.119 your entrepreneur adventure, but it's paying attention to all the milestones in between that 385 00:33:24.240 --> 00:33:30.960 really determines the trajectory and the help of Your Business and you. So really 386 00:33:30.039 --> 00:33:34.119 what I took from you know, series three is is, yeah, I 387 00:33:34.200 --> 00:33:37.279 mean I think I felt a lot better. It was kind of therapy talking 388 00:33:37.319 --> 00:33:43.960 about all our treason falls and but you know also how we picked ourselves back 389 00:33:44.039 --> 00:33:46.039 up from that and then how to take care of ourselves. You know, 390 00:33:46.160 --> 00:33:51.000 we've, I think we've all experienced entrepreneur burnout. All want to throw in 391 00:33:51.039 --> 00:33:55.039 the towel from time to time. But we talked about how, you know, 392 00:33:55.200 --> 00:33:59.720 there's different ways to kind of cope and I think we've learned some things 393 00:33:59.759 --> 00:34:05.240 as well of how we can manage our stress. So actually, out of 394 00:34:05.279 --> 00:34:09.079 that series, what are what are some things that maybe you two are doing 395 00:34:09.239 --> 00:34:13.480 now or are planning on doing? We're about to take a little break here 396 00:34:13.559 --> 00:34:19.719 before season two. Are we taking any vacations or anything to ease the burnout? 397 00:34:20.119 --> 00:34:24.800 You know, even from producing this podcast here? Yeah, I think 398 00:34:24.880 --> 00:34:32.119 for me I really enjoyed this series because I never thought of myself as somebody 399 00:34:32.280 --> 00:34:37.199 who experiences burnout. I just keep going going. I think of myself more 400 00:34:37.239 --> 00:34:42.679 of like the everready battery I just said. I just going, going, 401 00:34:42.760 --> 00:34:46.920 going, and I think it was a real reality check from me in the 402 00:34:47.000 --> 00:34:53.719 beginning of the year when my friends were seeing it but I wasn't seeing it. 403 00:34:53.840 --> 00:34:58.199 I wasn't acknowledging it, and Actually Tristan was one of those people that 404 00:34:58.360 --> 00:35:00.639 was like, Mama, you need to take Sundays off, like you doing 405 00:35:00.679 --> 00:35:04.559 your PhD, you do in the business, you doing all this stuff. 406 00:35:05.000 --> 00:35:08.599 You've been working seven days a week consistent for several months now. You need 407 00:35:09.000 --> 00:35:14.960 to take a break. And it took me hitting a while, you know, 408 00:35:15.760 --> 00:35:20.239 and I tend to think that I'm mentally tough, but I think it's 409 00:35:20.280 --> 00:35:24.119 a testament to wear any one of us, any one of us, because 410 00:35:24.239 --> 00:35:29.719 we're so focused on what it is that we're trying to accomplish that we lose 411 00:35:29.880 --> 00:35:35.760 sight of that selfcare component that is so credible, you know, because if 412 00:35:35.840 --> 00:35:38.400 we don't take care of ourselves, we can't take care of our business, 413 00:35:38.719 --> 00:35:42.599 we can't take care of our families, we can't take care of all the 414 00:35:42.679 --> 00:35:45.840 other stuff. And so, you know, one of the reasons we decided 415 00:35:45.880 --> 00:35:50.440 to take a break is that we've had a lot of fun, but it's 416 00:35:50.519 --> 00:35:55.079 been a lot of work, you know, launching this podcast and and writing 417 00:35:55.199 --> 00:36:00.639 the bloods and getting things out on social media and just sharing our stories and 418 00:36:00.760 --> 00:36:05.639 connecting with guests and it's been an awesome ride. But I think we also 419 00:36:05.760 --> 00:36:09.840 realize that sometimes you need, you know, some are in our very sanity 420 00:36:10.079 --> 00:36:16.480 charge and then go again. So, yeah, that's what's right. Until 421 00:36:16.480 --> 00:36:20.800 what you're saying Ala without our and our that our and our there's us a 422 00:36:20.920 --> 00:36:24.079 different perspective, because not a are not allows us to step back from the 423 00:36:24.159 --> 00:36:30.760 situation. We assess the situation and hop right back into the situation differently. 424 00:36:31.840 --> 00:36:37.480 So far this series, what I am taken away is that there's a trip 425 00:36:37.599 --> 00:36:42.800 that I really wanted to take. I've been working very, very, very 426 00:36:42.920 --> 00:36:45.960 hard at it. I'm not sure if I'm any closer to it. However, 427 00:36:47.239 --> 00:36:51.559 at this point is where I just have to step back, reassess and 428 00:36:51.920 --> 00:36:54.599 really see where it is. But where I'm at, one thing that I 429 00:36:54.639 --> 00:36:58.679 will tell you, and I'll start shaying, which you guys. I had 430 00:36:59.800 --> 00:37:05.239 two great friends and they first encourage me to do some photography, and then 431 00:37:05.519 --> 00:37:09.800 another two and they really push me to get the photography done. So I'm 432 00:37:09.920 --> 00:37:16.400 on the path of now hopefully releasing decision photography, hope in the next couple 433 00:37:16.519 --> 00:37:22.039 months, and that's that's another milestone. That's the more growth and that's what 434 00:37:22.960 --> 00:37:30.920 we're exactly where we're talking about. So that school. Let's get it. 435 00:37:30.440 --> 00:37:36.239 Let's getting to our Kisha's take away. She was our suitcase story for series 436 00:37:36.360 --> 00:37:44.559 three. I remember, like when I first started, and I've left the 437 00:37:44.679 --> 00:37:47.920 pharmacy, I used to pick top, I used to give myself like girl, 438 00:37:49.000 --> 00:37:52.880 you could do this, you and you know you are your mirror, 439 00:37:53.000 --> 00:38:00.079 like. But I like even because a I was going through US aboation and 440 00:38:00.199 --> 00:38:02.719 the divorce. I had three small kids, some much, and I tried 441 00:38:02.800 --> 00:38:09.880 to visit crazy. But even like the beginning times, like when we first 442 00:38:09.960 --> 00:38:14.679 open, I saw many times in this part on the par floor, and 443 00:38:15.480 --> 00:38:23.239 what you don't done deep in this anyway, turn by name, a lot 444 00:38:23.360 --> 00:38:29.800 of internal conversations, a bunch of insecurity. It went from like in security 445 00:38:29.880 --> 00:38:31.280 for me, like being like you could do this, come on, you 446 00:38:31.360 --> 00:38:37.679 could do this different to this floor. So, you know, I want 447 00:38:37.719 --> 00:38:43.199 to tell like entrepreneurs or whatever business you plan to get into, make sure 448 00:38:43.199 --> 00:38:47.559 it's something that you love to do. You know, because the minute you 449 00:38:47.760 --> 00:38:53.440 meet like a hipop or that, you got a time you want to give 450 00:38:53.559 --> 00:39:00.760 up. So it has to be something that you love doing. M another 451 00:39:00.880 --> 00:39:06.679 mic drop. Yeah, yeah, I love keys. Yeah, like she 452 00:39:07.760 --> 00:39:13.039 her journey has just been amazing to watch and, you know, to her 453 00:39:13.199 --> 00:39:16.800 point, a lot of the Times people don't see those periods of time when 454 00:39:16.960 --> 00:39:22.760 she's on the pharmacy for you know, as entrepreneurs we're having the doubts or 455 00:39:22.880 --> 00:39:27.880 we're having the mental burnout. You know, they don't see that part. 456 00:39:28.519 --> 00:39:34.320 A lot of the Times they think it's instantaneous accomplishments and achievements and accolades that 457 00:39:34.440 --> 00:39:37.320 you're getting, but it was a long journey getting there. You know. 458 00:39:38.400 --> 00:39:43.760 Yeah, there's that that kind of imposter syndrome where, yeah, that there's 459 00:39:43.800 --> 00:39:47.000 t daisy wake up and you're like what am I doing? You know, 460 00:39:47.159 --> 00:39:51.599 especially like Christen. I'm sure you can maybe a test of this to you, 461 00:39:51.679 --> 00:39:53.719 but you know, I've I purchased expensive cameras for a business and stuff 462 00:39:53.719 --> 00:39:58.119 and then immediately I'm like wait a minute, I should not have done that, 463 00:39:58.280 --> 00:40:07.119 like there you go, but but yeah, no, just it's just 464 00:40:07.280 --> 00:40:10.960 that. Again, we're all in this. We all go through this. 465 00:40:12.639 --> 00:40:17.239 She has a brick and mortar location and the sitting in there wondering if she 466 00:40:17.280 --> 00:40:21.880 can do it. But it's a sad ability to kind of self motivate or 467 00:40:22.000 --> 00:40:27.880 find motivations. You know, even it's just at a desperation to keep going 468 00:40:28.159 --> 00:40:32.960 and find that that that ability or that that rhythm again to take that next 469 00:40:32.960 --> 00:40:38.559 step forward. What are you know again, were you guys have known keysh 470 00:40:38.559 --> 00:40:42.800 a lot longer than I have and everything, and it was amazing, you 471 00:40:42.840 --> 00:40:45.320 know, to have to talk to her here. But what are some things 472 00:40:45.440 --> 00:40:51.760 that you guys are doing or do to motivate yourselves when you kind of, 473 00:40:52.199 --> 00:40:57.800 you know, start hitting that wall or feeling like at the pressure might be 474 00:40:57.880 --> 00:41:01.800 too much? Interesting, you mentioned you got back from Carnival this past weekend 475 00:41:01.960 --> 00:41:08.320 and and you know, had some maybe less than ideal experiences and stuff. 476 00:41:08.800 --> 00:41:15.559 So you know, how do you wake up when your hand is so or 477 00:41:15.760 --> 00:41:19.159 locked in from hoping a camera for six hours and you know want to keep 478 00:41:19.239 --> 00:41:23.280 going? What do you do? What do you you just really remember a 479 00:41:23.320 --> 00:41:29.400 passion. Unfortunately, like I don't have what I fool might be like a 480 00:41:29.519 --> 00:41:34.000 perfect answer anything else. I just remember to passion. I remembered the fact 481 00:41:34.079 --> 00:41:38.559 that this is what it is that when I really rather not be doing anything 482 00:41:38.639 --> 00:41:44.119 else, even in your lesson ideal situations, and it's part of your most 483 00:41:44.199 --> 00:41:50.880 cause. Is that rest and relaxation, that step back when I got myself 484 00:41:50.960 --> 00:41:53.559 caught up in a situation this weekend. At the end of the day, 485 00:41:54.119 --> 00:41:58.679 the same person came to me after I was like, you know what, 486 00:41:59.320 --> 00:42:02.800 despite of all I didn't like this situation, I learned a lot from it. 487 00:42:04.480 --> 00:42:07.400 So when that happened, what my step back was slander. You know 488 00:42:07.559 --> 00:42:12.679 Danny Dan he's usually like my voice of reason. So, even to that, 489 00:42:12.800 --> 00:42:14.760 spoke to Danny about it. I was like, you know, Danny, 490 00:42:15.360 --> 00:42:19.039 what am I doing wrong? What could I have done better? I 491 00:42:19.159 --> 00:42:22.519 hate to use the corny words, me like the leader Shit, because a 492 00:42:22.599 --> 00:42:25.400 lot of times you look at us as leaders. Are Everybody puts us as 493 00:42:25.440 --> 00:42:30.760 the leaders and we don't necessarily see ourselves as leaders, because we're just doing 494 00:42:30.360 --> 00:42:37.280 what we're passionate about, being compassionate towards others. So that it was like, 495 00:42:37.519 --> 00:42:39.559 Nah, I think you handle the situation pretty well. I think everything 496 00:42:39.679 --> 00:42:45.639 that you did was right. And he was like, however, is for 497 00:42:45.760 --> 00:42:49.519 me to look back and for me to find what it is that I would 498 00:42:49.559 --> 00:42:53.440 have really liked to change about the situation and what it is that I could 499 00:42:53.480 --> 00:42:58.840 have done better. Because the key is, as entrepreneurs, we're the ones 500 00:42:58.920 --> 00:43:02.920 that know all our variables. Everybody else on outside that's looking. They pick 501 00:43:04.000 --> 00:43:07.480 and shoes what it is that they want to do. So nobody is going 502 00:43:07.519 --> 00:43:10.119 to be like, oh well, Chris Gott a daughter, so this got 503 00:43:10.239 --> 00:43:14.519 to work. The Black Chris Gott a daughter, so this he needs to 504 00:43:14.599 --> 00:43:17.719 find something else to do, you know. So they look at it, 505 00:43:17.880 --> 00:43:23.840 but we don't have the same perspectives. You know, how about you? 506 00:43:23.880 --> 00:43:29.480 I mean keeps talked about, you know, how you having to want to 507 00:43:29.519 --> 00:43:34.440 love your business. So, you know, with that Grad you know, 508 00:43:34.639 --> 00:43:38.480 like I think there's a reoccurring theme, even though it wasn't planned right, 509 00:43:38.599 --> 00:43:45.599 that's emerging from this Disti in finale. I mean Warren said, your business 510 00:43:45.639 --> 00:43:47.280 needs to be a reflection of you. You need to focus on what you're 511 00:43:47.280 --> 00:43:52.920 passionate about. Keisha's talking about doing what you love and it that's what's going 512 00:43:52.960 --> 00:43:57.280 to get you through those difficult times. You know, in that series we 513 00:43:57.440 --> 00:44:01.400 also talked about milestone versus finish lines and you know, she even talked about 514 00:44:01.519 --> 00:44:07.079 when she had started out, her initial plan was to just spoken a pharmacy 515 00:44:07.559 --> 00:44:12.079 at a certain size, right, and then the opportunity came and she got 516 00:44:12.119 --> 00:44:16.559 a bigger space and expanded her pharmacy and then another opportunity came and she's like, 517 00:44:17.039 --> 00:44:21.800 I couldn't have planned it even better. But if because she loves what 518 00:44:21.960 --> 00:44:25.400 she does, she's passionate about what she's doing and she's seen the benefits that 519 00:44:25.519 --> 00:44:30.599 she's contributing to the community. So it just keeps propelling her, despite the 520 00:44:30.760 --> 00:44:35.519 challenges, to keep going and to keep expanding her business and to keep growing 521 00:44:35.639 --> 00:44:39.039 and to keep giving back to her community and I think that's great. And, 522 00:44:39.199 --> 00:44:42.280 Chris, really quick one thing I want to show you, guys, 523 00:44:42.360 --> 00:44:45.920 to you touching her a little bit slantio spoke about the space. When he 524 00:44:46.079 --> 00:44:52.000 saw saw the space. We got the space, Chris. We spend stupid 525 00:44:52.119 --> 00:44:57.920 money on equipment. Sometimes you have no idea what we're going to use it 526 00:44:58.079 --> 00:45:04.280 for that point in time. But it's like avicement, that story of Noah. 527 00:45:05.119 --> 00:45:06.719 You know, I don't want to say if you build, they will 528 00:45:06.760 --> 00:45:10.599 come. Kind of thing yours bring. I'm not why would you build a 529 00:45:10.679 --> 00:45:14.559 boat like it makes no sense to them at that point in time. Why 530 00:45:14.639 --> 00:45:20.599 would you want more space? You run flow crime last week. Why Expand? 531 00:45:20.840 --> 00:45:22.480 Why? We always looking, but the thing about us is that we're 532 00:45:22.559 --> 00:45:29.119 always looking for we're always looking forward. So when that time commas, it's 533 00:45:29.159 --> 00:45:34.360 like we are writing a better position for whatever it is our blessings will be. 534 00:45:34.960 --> 00:45:39.400 So I was set backs those hardships. You know that we're dealing with 535 00:45:39.800 --> 00:45:45.880 the doubt. What happens when you're on that shoe Christ and you like yeah, 536 00:45:45.000 --> 00:45:47.840 you know what, that six thousand all the kind of camera kind of 537 00:45:47.880 --> 00:45:53.360 came in clutched. Yea, when you talk in claient looks at you like 538 00:45:53.559 --> 00:45:58.760 Oh, yeah, that's the Cabra. Now I know what I paid for. 539 00:45:59.519 --> 00:46:04.920 And it's just that, because when we're buying it, damn right, 540 00:46:05.599 --> 00:46:12.159 Fiftyzeros, body, no Lens. There's like a threezero dollar version. It 541 00:46:12.280 --> 00:46:15.719 is exactly walking with the three thousand dollar version is not the same. When 542 00:46:15.760 --> 00:46:21.199 you walk in to the farmer's necess size of a closet is not comfortable with 543 00:46:21.360 --> 00:46:24.639 not coming back right, you know, and that's just that's just it. 544 00:46:25.159 --> 00:46:29.760 It shows us that sometimes you just got to trust your God, you got 545 00:46:29.840 --> 00:46:34.639 to trust your passion, and want to doing is setting ourselves up growth. 546 00:46:35.079 --> 00:46:37.119 And if that's what it is that we really want, we want to grow 547 00:46:37.239 --> 00:46:49.360 in network. We want to grow. What else? Broachhana, definitely your 548 00:46:49.400 --> 00:46:52.039 business you want to go, and that's what it is. Always want to 549 00:46:52.079 --> 00:46:55.320 be growing, we always want to be learning something more. We want to 550 00:46:55.360 --> 00:47:00.719 surround our people with the surround ourselves with the people that compliment us. Look 551 00:47:00.760 --> 00:47:05.039 at to night, prime example. Give it to you, Chris. I 552 00:47:05.280 --> 00:47:10.159 spoke for forty minutes about every episode tonight. I had watched, to say, 553 00:47:10.480 --> 00:47:14.440 and Chris picked up that torch and he just ran with it. So 554 00:47:14.639 --> 00:47:21.280 I'm saying this out here and she's like, okay, these dish it to 555 00:47:21.360 --> 00:47:23.559 you, Tristan. Here you go, Chris, pull it. I will 556 00:47:23.599 --> 00:47:27.159 put a cap on it. You know what? I see something else, 557 00:47:27.880 --> 00:47:30.239 but this is what you want to do. It's about that growth, is 558 00:47:30.280 --> 00:47:35.000 about US learning and growing together. You know, that was about getting that 559 00:47:35.079 --> 00:47:37.159 sawthing more. You always want more. You always want your passion and grow. 560 00:47:37.880 --> 00:47:49.760 It's about that networking, right, SHL end up serious. So, 561 00:47:49.920 --> 00:47:52.159 guys, WHO's happening? Yeah, why, we can get to the series 562 00:47:52.199 --> 00:48:15.159 for videos here and then what a Shlanda's written. Take Away? All right, 563 00:48:17.159 --> 00:48:24.559 there's another essay for you. This takeaway was kind of cool because I 564 00:48:24.639 --> 00:48:30.159 try to look at it from different perspectives, you know, from the network 565 00:48:30.280 --> 00:48:35.039 to the networking to the networking. You know, when viewed from different perspective, 566 00:48:35.159 --> 00:48:38.960 the act of creating a system of interconnected people, which is the network 567 00:48:39.519 --> 00:48:44.920 by a person or group of persons who are the networkers, with the goal 568 00:48:45.000 --> 00:48:47.400 of meeting New People, getting to know each other better and exchange ideas and 569 00:48:47.480 --> 00:48:52.719 information, which is the essence of networking, are really fundamental components of nurturing 570 00:48:52.880 --> 00:49:00.480 one social capital, whether on a personal or professional basis. People like doing 571 00:49:00.760 --> 00:49:02.800 things, and in this case business, with people they know, like and 572 00:49:02.920 --> 00:49:07.280 trust, such as this podcast right. Therefore, the more people you know, 573 00:49:07.920 --> 00:49:12.920 or, better yet, the more people that know you and what you 574 00:49:13.119 --> 00:49:15.679 do, will help not only you as a person, but help your business 575 00:49:15.800 --> 00:49:19.840 grow, while you also help others. At the end of the day, 576 00:49:20.000 --> 00:49:23.000 networking is about relating with others in a way that helps each other learn, 577 00:49:23.679 --> 00:49:28.920 grow and, hopefully, have some fun along the way. So I asked 578 00:49:28.960 --> 00:49:34.719 you who can and you connect with in a meaningful way today and expand that 579 00:49:34.840 --> 00:49:40.400 network and build that social capital? What about you, Chris? I mean 580 00:49:40.480 --> 00:49:45.280 honestly. I sorry, I keep thinking though the one Land Pun Mon Mon 581 00:49:45.360 --> 00:50:00.199 Pot, but but no, I mean honestly. I'm interested here after after 582 00:50:00.360 --> 00:50:06.400 season one and going to season two really to here. I mean we've said 583 00:50:06.400 --> 00:50:08.199 it on our episodes and I know hosts always say this and stuff, but 584 00:50:08.480 --> 00:50:13.440 but really we want to connect with with our listeners now. You know, 585 00:50:13.480 --> 00:50:16.320 they've got to learn a little bit about us, and I'd be interested to 586 00:50:16.440 --> 00:50:20.559 learn a little bit of more more about you know, either who's benefiting from 587 00:50:20.719 --> 00:50:24.239 this podcast or who's, you know, just interested in engaging in certain ways. 588 00:50:24.360 --> 00:50:28.559 So that's who I would say I could connect with in a meaningful way 589 00:50:28.639 --> 00:50:32.599 today. Is Leveraging this new platform, you know, that we've created here 590 00:50:32.719 --> 00:50:38.199 to help other entrepreneurs help ourselves. Are Our own little group therapy here on 591 00:50:38.320 --> 00:50:43.440 this trip. But yeah, just connecting to more of our of our listeners 592 00:50:43.519 --> 00:50:49.480 here. What about you? Justin Wow, I'm gonna similar, just not 593 00:50:49.599 --> 00:50:53.719 as direct as Chris Chriss was thinking about, I guess, our viewers. 594 00:50:55.280 --> 00:51:00.840 What I want to do is someone roll my network, my social media network. 595 00:51:00.159 --> 00:51:05.440 I'm thinking about trying to forgot how to connect more on a social media 596 00:51:05.840 --> 00:51:10.480 level platform. I'm pretty young. At the same time, I am disconnected 597 00:51:10.559 --> 00:51:15.599 in that sense. So I'm just trying to figure out how could I and 598 00:51:15.559 --> 00:51:20.920 we just new platform. You know I'm at. I have a couple of 599 00:51:21.039 --> 00:51:23.400 friends, have a couple of man friends and they've really been showing me some 600 00:51:23.519 --> 00:51:30.440 new insight as to what it is that I've been doing. It's called creating 601 00:51:30.519 --> 00:51:34.599 content, and creating content has been from this podcast, to tell you the 602 00:51:34.679 --> 00:51:37.960 truth, to just about every video we shot, any picture we take. 603 00:51:38.360 --> 00:51:45.559 I told you guys about decision photography. So this weekend we didn't shoot. 604 00:51:45.719 --> 00:51:49.559 We did some behind the scenes. He's a photographer. I do more videos. 605 00:51:49.679 --> 00:51:53.639 So my approach to the video behind the scenes is completely different to what 606 00:51:53.800 --> 00:52:00.000 it is that he's been doing and just sharing our viewpoints and different angles. 607 00:52:00.400 --> 00:52:04.800 And today he just sent me a bunch of videos of me shooting the behind, 608 00:52:05.239 --> 00:52:10.360 behind the scene and just small content that he's like look and just going 609 00:52:10.400 --> 00:52:14.119 to poll six seconds in this. You're going to do this. So in 610 00:52:14.199 --> 00:52:16.280 that way I could start to grow my network, meet more, I want 611 00:52:16.320 --> 00:52:22.599 to say models. We more people that I do would want to connect with. 612 00:52:24.039 --> 00:52:29.000 I love that. It's just kind of the you know, we we 613 00:52:29.199 --> 00:52:31.480 create a lot of in for for other people. I mean all three of 614 00:52:31.599 --> 00:52:36.880 us are are creating, you know, opportunities for other people's businesses here. 615 00:52:37.000 --> 00:52:39.440 But that is one thing that, yeah, I agree. I kind of 616 00:52:39.480 --> 00:52:46.320 fall short on to sometimes is actually showcasing that and letting people in run on 617 00:52:46.440 --> 00:52:49.920 our world and it's like, oh, how come you know I'm not going 618 00:52:50.000 --> 00:52:51.920 to get many leads or whatever, and it's like, well, you're not 619 00:52:52.320 --> 00:52:54.840 putting yourself out there. So, yeah, I know that really makes sense. 620 00:52:54.840 --> 00:52:59.639 We know, Chris. The crazy parts would is that we look at 621 00:52:59.679 --> 00:53:02.480 it, we analyzing and we tell everybody else that you so I'm saying. 622 00:53:04.119 --> 00:53:07.800 Ever, really it's like the carpel got stuff like the paints. House is 623 00:53:07.920 --> 00:53:12.800 never painted. Yea Car is never fit. We're so caught up and was 624 00:53:12.840 --> 00:53:15.599 so busy doing it for everybody goes, yeah, we don't even apply those 625 00:53:15.679 --> 00:53:21.599 same rules. Toss so like a big sister. It's JUSTNA. We do 626 00:53:21.800 --> 00:53:25.199 need to make time for that. Self Care. Selves scores the best care 627 00:53:27.559 --> 00:53:34.519 that this is you. Let's hear from our suitcase story. Guests here, 628 00:53:34.639 --> 00:53:45.159 Jerry Garcia, I am trying to build a business and a business model where 629 00:53:45.280 --> 00:53:50.280 I give a lot, which in networking it sounds like it's are in business. 630 00:53:50.360 --> 00:53:52.559 It's like the worst thing do just work for free or work, but 631 00:53:52.800 --> 00:53:58.320 honestly, I've landed most of my gigs and you know, creating a network. 632 00:53:59.360 --> 00:54:01.880 You have to create the network. And and I get hit up, 633 00:54:02.079 --> 00:54:06.760 like photographers always hit me up because I'm doing music festivals in these bigger gigs 634 00:54:06.840 --> 00:54:08.320 now. They're like well, how did you do it? You know, 635 00:54:08.440 --> 00:54:12.519 and I didn't want and took it on a photos I would go to events, 636 00:54:12.599 --> 00:54:16.199 I wouldn't try to undercut the other photographers, but I would shoot it. 637 00:54:16.280 --> 00:54:20.679 I would shoot a concert and then start editing that night and have the 638 00:54:20.760 --> 00:54:24.599 photos by like next morning or that night, just so I could beat anyone 639 00:54:25.199 --> 00:54:31.599 to the punch and doing that and just having like a I enjoy this like 640 00:54:31.679 --> 00:54:37.360 I really enjoy, you know, working for myself. I enjoy the adrenaline 641 00:54:37.480 --> 00:54:43.000 or the rush of it, like of I don't know, the uncertainty of 642 00:54:43.159 --> 00:54:46.840 like where this could go. It is exciting, it is stressful. It's 643 00:54:46.920 --> 00:54:52.239 not like it's not as pretty and glamorous. I think people think that entrepreneurs 644 00:54:52.360 --> 00:54:59.400 it's like this really fun thing. It's mostly stressed every day, like the 645 00:54:59.440 --> 00:55:02.559 past like three years, which I'm addicted to that. Now I've realized it's 646 00:55:02.599 --> 00:55:08.079 like I can't turn that off. HMM. I was a trail secrit way 647 00:55:08.119 --> 00:55:14.199 to bring it to a closull on that. Love the choice. You know, 648 00:55:14.360 --> 00:55:22.239 what I heard from Jerry in his networking was timeliness, right, responsiveness 649 00:55:22.639 --> 00:55:30.400 and really enjoying it. Yep, and generosity. You know, people tend 650 00:55:30.679 --> 00:55:37.440 to think of your in business to make a profit. Absolutely right, but 651 00:55:37.599 --> 00:55:42.079 there's ways of getting to that profit. It's not always where it's just a 652 00:55:42.280 --> 00:55:49.320 transaction between time and dollar or service and dollar or products and dollars. Right, 653 00:55:50.000 --> 00:56:00.400 sometimes it's and then take effort to be able to give without expecting anything 654 00:56:00.519 --> 00:56:06.039 back. That helps to really build a nurture those relationships where people feel like 655 00:56:06.440 --> 00:56:09.679 I can trust this person, I know this person and then, when the 656 00:56:09.719 --> 00:56:14.480 opportunity arises, I want to do business with this person. It's going back 657 00:56:14.519 --> 00:56:19.360 to building that social capital we were talking about before. Yep, HMM. 658 00:56:19.840 --> 00:56:25.079 Yeah, know what I think. You know, Jerry again to your point 659 00:56:25.119 --> 00:56:30.559 about kind of giving in. If you give, you shall receive, and 660 00:56:31.000 --> 00:56:36.559 he's set when we talked about this. You know during that episode that when 661 00:56:37.320 --> 00:56:40.840 I was with him when he first started Garcia media services, and then all 662 00:56:40.840 --> 00:56:44.159 of a sudden he was like Oh, like, I booked a Gig this 663 00:56:44.239 --> 00:56:46.119 week and I'm like, oh, that's awesome, like like what's some mudging 664 00:56:46.159 --> 00:56:47.599 the stuff. He's like, Oh no, I'm doing it for free, 665 00:56:47.840 --> 00:56:52.480 and I'm like no, Darry, how you do business. But but honestly, 666 00:56:52.480 --> 00:56:57.800 I've learned, you know, so much from him just in the and 667 00:56:57.840 --> 00:57:00.039 that's what I did start off of my business doing, even with, you 668 00:57:00.119 --> 00:57:06.159 know, my documentary for her can Maria and to help Puerto Rican people have 669 00:57:06.320 --> 00:57:09.199 a voice here on the United States. It was all for an actual, 670 00:57:09.280 --> 00:57:14.320 like altruistic reason. And then I think as you get into like the okay, 671 00:57:14.360 --> 00:57:15.079 well, now I need to start making money, so I need these, 672 00:57:15.199 --> 00:57:19.079 you know, corporate clients and things like that, you kind of become 673 00:57:19.400 --> 00:57:22.719 that business minded person sometimes. But but, you know, to Jerry's point, 674 00:57:22.800 --> 00:57:27.519 he he he, enjoys what he does and you know, Keisha said 675 00:57:27.559 --> 00:57:32.119 it like you have to find what's we're what's worth crying on the pharmacy floor 676 00:57:32.239 --> 00:57:37.280 for, you know, to still be able to be motivated and get yourself 677 00:57:37.360 --> 00:57:40.840 out there. Yeah, it's it's that. That's kind of what entrepreneurship, 678 00:57:42.400 --> 00:57:44.960 I think, is and you know, we talked about it not being mutually 679 00:57:45.000 --> 00:57:49.880 exclusive from our our personal lives or personal brands. I mean, for me, 680 00:57:49.960 --> 00:57:52.719 I want to make the world a better place, and if I can 681 00:57:52.800 --> 00:57:57.639 do that through my documentaries, the podcast that produced, etc. That is, 682 00:57:58.280 --> 00:58:00.400 you know, I've left the mark at the end of the day, 683 00:58:00.400 --> 00:58:04.239 and I've also showed, you know, my daughter that's that's my likegacy now 684 00:58:05.079 --> 00:58:07.480 to show her that she can do it too and she can make an impact. 685 00:58:07.599 --> 00:58:09.800 You know, however, she wants to express herself in the world. 686 00:58:12.000 --> 00:58:19.239 Right. What about interest in? What I got from Jerry that presidents like 687 00:58:19.360 --> 00:58:29.039 a whole lot is term timing an opportunity. One feel like with our whole 688 00:58:29.159 --> 00:58:31.679 life, this one time, this one time is one time. A lot 689 00:58:31.760 --> 00:58:37.079 of times we have a bunch of like opportunities that we never capital lights on 690 00:58:37.159 --> 00:58:42.719 because we're waiting for this one big thing. Yep. So as entrepreneur, 691 00:58:42.920 --> 00:58:46.239 I feel like our whole life, our whole purpose, is just being ready 692 00:58:46.480 --> 00:58:52.800 for these opportunities. So when Jerry was talking about like it on, I 693 00:58:52.000 --> 00:58:59.639 believe things with no budget or I'm just thinking about it, it's like I 694 00:58:59.760 --> 00:59:04.559 say, it's like how I meant you should she condition. So it came 695 00:59:04.679 --> 00:59:07.119 in. It was like we need a quick edit, and what went from 696 00:59:07.199 --> 00:59:14.199 being a quick edit turned into a great relationship, you know, and that's 697 00:59:14.360 --> 00:59:19.000 just what it is. Sometimes it's not about the money, it's not about 698 00:59:19.079 --> 00:59:23.760 capitalizing on certain situations. And even if you want to say that everything is 699 00:59:23.800 --> 00:59:29.280 about money, look these millionaire, these billionaires, they end up still being 700 00:59:29.360 --> 00:59:35.199 philanthropists because it's not about the money, it's about creating opportunity. But others 701 00:59:35.760 --> 00:59:38.000 you know, and that, that to me, is what it is. 702 00:59:38.079 --> 00:59:42.599 That I really took away from what Jerry was saying. It's just it's your 703 00:59:42.679 --> 00:59:49.880 passion. Chris Slano, we spoke about it. I believe it was maybe 704 00:59:49.960 --> 00:59:55.559 series one, episode one. Entrepreneurs of people that want to change things right. 705 00:59:55.920 --> 01:00:01.119 We kept seeing something and we decided that we wanted to be that change. 706 01:00:01.199 --> 01:00:07.119 We wanted to make that change. We have the opportunity to make that 707 01:00:07.360 --> 01:00:12.400 change. That was my takeaway from from there. Is just time and opportunity. 708 01:00:13.239 --> 01:00:16.960 This after be ready. Yeah, guys, we have made it through 709 01:00:17.960 --> 01:00:25.000 all four series of season one here. That is sixteen episodes worth well content, 710 01:00:25.519 --> 01:00:31.840 sixteen weeks that our listeners have been on this trip with us and we 711 01:00:32.000 --> 01:00:36.559 are going to take a little bit of a break here. We will still 712 01:00:36.599 --> 01:00:39.360 be active on on social media, so we still have some content coming out, 713 01:00:40.320 --> 01:00:46.119 but we are coming back on June twenty eight with our first episode of 714 01:00:46.320 --> 01:01:00.199 season two. Right SHAUND UP? Yep, yeah, awesome organizer, but 715 01:01:00.400 --> 01:01:06.159 also to reset and realign. You know, one of the things before we 716 01:01:06.239 --> 01:01:09.400 got on a call were looking at our analytics, and congratulations to Keisha for 717 01:01:09.559 --> 01:01:15.159 having the most viewed post on our social media. That's a testament to her 718 01:01:15.239 --> 01:01:21.760 network courts her and once they hear from her, so we gotta do something 719 01:01:21.920 --> 01:01:24.719 special for her. I think that's pretty sounds like a plan. Yeah, 720 01:01:24.960 --> 01:01:29.039 so, Christ and, what are you looking for? To An also season 721 01:01:29.159 --> 01:01:35.119 two for season so I'm looking forward to more engagement. I wanted to give 722 01:01:35.119 --> 01:01:37.960 it like a little different twist. I mean, we've given them the topics 723 01:01:38.199 --> 01:01:43.199 thus far, so I don't even care if weget like for comments, whatever 724 01:01:43.280 --> 01:01:45.960 it is, but we want their perspective as to what it is that they 725 01:01:46.119 --> 01:01:51.639 want to know about from our experiences, and that's just it. Now Season 726 01:01:51.800 --> 01:01:54.760 Two, for me, is more about US outreaching. I don't want to 727 01:01:54.800 --> 01:01:59.920 be self serving, meaning that we only keep telling you about this is us, 728 01:02:00.079 --> 01:02:02.039 this is us, this is us. This is all in order to 729 01:02:02.079 --> 01:02:06.039 help people. We need to be able to come to your level of figure 730 01:02:06.079 --> 01:02:08.159 out what it is that you need and kind of, I don't want to 731 01:02:08.159 --> 01:02:14.159 say, pulled you along with us and we'll give different perspective from your situation 732 01:02:14.360 --> 01:02:16.119 Inste I'm saying, yeah, I would really like for us to do now. 733 01:02:16.239 --> 01:02:21.800 It's just it's all about engaging our audience. Is All about just giving 734 01:02:21.960 --> 01:02:25.119 back to me just a little little more, to our viewers, to our 735 01:02:25.159 --> 01:02:30.000 listeners, and I got some crazy ideas. We're going to have a production 736 01:02:30.159 --> 01:02:36.360 feels so now. I've let Chris handles see the one. I get ready 737 01:02:36.400 --> 01:02:38.119 for season two. If you guys like these roles, are going to be 738 01:02:38.199 --> 01:02:43.320 doing more these kind of things on and just just look forward to it. 739 01:02:43.440 --> 01:02:45.679 We're going to have trailers to the episode, but I don't give away too 740 01:02:45.800 --> 01:02:52.920 much because Shalana's it to sign on to. This is yet Christ is going 741 01:02:52.960 --> 01:03:07.239 to rand. It's not a quite different press we got, we got feature 742 01:03:07.320 --> 01:03:15.079 films we're going to have.
