I wanted to do that one, but I was as 12 00:01:08.079 --> 00:01:12.920 Shure we're going to take composed how exactly we're gonna do this. So I'm 13 00:01:12.959 --> 00:01:19.239 happy on the broken out, Chris Start. This is definitely different. Ready 14 00:01:19.640 --> 00:01:25.640 for real will help. You enjoyed the break, everybody, and you know, 15 00:01:25.719 --> 00:01:30.239 caught up on last season again. We have some great nuggets in there 16 00:01:30.239 --> 00:01:34.400 and we're just excited to be back here, you know, for our our 17 00:01:34.519 --> 00:01:38.920 launch of season two. We have a little bit different structure now. You've 18 00:01:38.920 --> 00:01:42.799 been seeing, you know, even some stories and stuff. We're just trying 19 00:01:42.840 --> 00:01:46.359 to mix it up, shake it up, keep it real with you all. 20 00:01:46.400 --> 00:01:49.719 And and yeah, just bring it to you for season two with the 21 00:01:49.840 --> 00:01:57.079 entrepreneurs trip and I'll taking this journey together. So again I am with, 22 00:01:57.200 --> 00:02:00.799 you know, the EXTC crew here. So I am to see and XTC, 23 00:02:00.560 --> 00:02:07.439 and to my far left we have the x, Sholanda, and then 24 00:02:07.560 --> 00:02:13.520 next to her is our main man, the tea homel, like that, 25 00:02:13.759 --> 00:02:21.680 the tea. I'm cristen. And Yeah, no, again, we're just 26 00:02:21.719 --> 00:02:25.120 excited to be here. So to get us just started off, let's jump 27 00:02:25.159 --> 00:02:29.759 into our new segment to kind of keep us rolling, you know, not 28 00:02:29.879 --> 00:02:34.800 get off on too many tangents or, you know, rabbit holes. So 29 00:02:35.039 --> 00:02:38.520 we are going to get into our first countdown segment. We are going to 30 00:02:38.520 --> 00:02:43.120 be timed with everything here, trying to keep it to roughly half hour episodes, 31 00:02:43.240 --> 00:02:45.800 and we're going to jump into our first one, which is what you've 32 00:02:45.840 --> 00:02:57.439 sipping while you tripping. All right, no, I don't, I don't, 33 00:02:57.479 --> 00:03:00.919 because we got it all got it at too, but it's I hate 34 00:03:01.120 --> 00:03:05.360 shot clock said. But but Chris, here's what you got wrong about it. 35 00:03:05.560 --> 00:03:08.360 I heard a drink pouring, got excited and then glass got empty. 36 00:03:08.919 --> 00:03:13.680 I know, I wish. I was short on sound effects. We will 37 00:03:15.039 --> 00:03:20.879 still work in progress here, but with a minute and thirty. Are Wondering, 38 00:03:21.000 --> 00:03:23.520 the audience may be wondering, why did we start with that segment? 39 00:03:23.639 --> 00:03:30.120 Well, in season one, in almost every episode, Chris was drinking something. 40 00:03:30.400 --> 00:03:42.400 So drinking when he's there, he goes tipping Chris. Well again, 41 00:03:42.479 --> 00:03:46.680 we are open to sponsorious, but since we don't have at the moment, 42 00:03:46.199 --> 00:03:54.759 I have a mango Habanero whiskey and soda. What you got, you Landa? 43 00:03:57.400 --> 00:04:01.719 I'm going coffee caffeine. I mean the keys and I need my third 44 00:04:01.879 --> 00:04:05.599 shot of caffeine. If I could take it intravenous, Lee would see me 45 00:04:05.639 --> 00:04:11.560 here with the Ivo, but I have to paddle for a cup of Coffee 46 00:04:11.599 --> 00:04:16.480 Sito. So that's and can always add a little bit what happened here. 47 00:04:16.480 --> 00:04:19.680 A run in there too, but ms show you, guys, I just 48 00:04:19.759 --> 00:04:24.560 got me a pretty glass portman, a colorful drink in there. So I'm 49 00:04:24.720 --> 00:04:28.959 drinking something just a little read. I'm not going to say because we got 50 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:32.079 the sponsored. So I was thinking in the Caribbean we had this thing with 51 00:04:32.279 --> 00:04:36.399 wis, like I'm sipping might tea and MND in my business. So I 52 00:04:36.439 --> 00:04:40.720 think this works for me because I'm tee, I'm a sick. I don't 53 00:04:40.759 --> 00:04:46.800 know my business what tripper is. Also, let us know what you are 54 00:04:46.879 --> 00:04:51.120 sipping while you tripping with us. And but our shot clock is already up. 55 00:04:51.160 --> 00:05:01.519 We're going to move into our next segment. I'll just s so let's 56 00:05:01.560 --> 00:05:05.600 unpack cool. Yeah, yeah, I want to suffer. Sexes. On 57 00:05:05.720 --> 00:05:10.639 point. Yes, the sound effects were on point. We're really taking this 58 00:05:10.720 --> 00:05:15.439 analogy of being on a trip a little bit more literally with our graphics this 59 00:05:15.519 --> 00:05:17.839 season, which is kind of cool. Right. So we're going to use 60 00:05:17.879 --> 00:05:21.360 a lot of metaphors, but we're going to unpack the conversation. And so, 61 00:05:21.399 --> 00:05:26.720 since this is our first episode of season two and based on the feedback, 62 00:05:26.759 --> 00:05:30.439 we've made a lot of changes. Hopefully you like them. It makes 63 00:05:30.519 --> 00:05:35.240 the conversation more dynamic and interesting and more engaging and educational for you. But 64 00:05:35.279 --> 00:05:38.959 we're going to just give you a little bit of a sneak peak of some 65 00:05:39.040 --> 00:05:44.439 of the upcoming topics. HMM, that we're going to talking about. So 66 00:05:44.759 --> 00:05:49.560 so we're already unpacking the future episodes. We're already just just a little unpacking. 67 00:05:49.600 --> 00:05:53.279 We it's just a carry on. It's not a full suit case. 68 00:05:54.560 --> 00:06:02.800 You know, feel a little bit of Christmas on the appetizer Slano you take 69 00:06:02.839 --> 00:06:06.720 for a weekend. Truely, all right outfit, you know, just in 70 00:06:06.800 --> 00:06:12.079 case. You never know what would happen. Actually, I'm getting ready to 71 00:06:12.120 --> 00:06:15.199 travel degrees and my goal is to go with a carry on. I do 72 00:06:15.279 --> 00:06:19.680 not want to check anything in. All right, so how about we do 73 00:06:19.759 --> 00:06:23.560 this? Any bets, but you shall want to hand to put two bags 74 00:06:23.600 --> 00:06:28.040 and a carry on. Look at a phrase. Look at a phrase. 75 00:06:30.279 --> 00:06:39.360 Let a season two of them. Nor Strip. So one of the things 76 00:06:39.480 --> 00:06:43.120 is when we started this podcast, you know, Chris is on the US 77 00:06:43.240 --> 00:06:47.000 mainline, Tristan is here in the USBI. I was straddling both areas. 78 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:51.639 So I'm kind of representing, pseudo representing the Caribbean diaspora. So one of 79 00:06:51.639 --> 00:06:57.879 the things we're going to really talk about is it's a cultural connection. As 80 00:06:57.920 --> 00:07:01.759 an entrepreneur within the space that you're working with or you were doing business within 81 00:07:01.839 --> 00:07:08.040 the community you're integrated with, and what does that look like? And how 82 00:07:08.040 --> 00:07:15.040 do you really tap into those cultural aspects to grow Your Business? Thought? 83 00:07:16.680 --> 00:07:19.439 Well, you know, I feel like I'm cultural already. I don't know 84 00:07:19.519 --> 00:07:25.360 what more we need to tap into. Like culture. How does culture and 85 00:07:25.439 --> 00:07:39.560 business even go together? Coca business ful to go together. I mean, 86 00:07:39.639 --> 00:07:46.800 what's Chris will's Your Business Culture? Well, as a solo preneur. Well, 87 00:07:47.399 --> 00:07:53.480 tag team, tag team with the wife. But you know, our 88 00:07:53.560 --> 00:07:57.319 culture is honestly just to be it's you do you, so it's in the 89 00:07:57.399 --> 00:08:01.279 name. It's be yourself, come as you are, but be ready to 90 00:08:01.279 --> 00:08:03.240 work and, you know, roll up your sleeves. But we'll get it 91 00:08:03.279 --> 00:08:07.319 done. H We need somebody else. And is it got to be EXTEC? 92 00:08:07.560 --> 00:08:13.399 Is somebody else that, I guess, throws it all Salata, go 93 00:08:13.600 --> 00:08:18.480 to Christ expecting something to go away. Left it just ropes. For sure 94 00:08:18.839 --> 00:08:22.720 a Christmas right an angle to the question, because he talked about the internal 95 00:08:22.720 --> 00:08:26.680 custer of his business. Right, Yep. And so, Wie, we 96 00:08:26.680 --> 00:08:31.040 were talking about it being a cultural connection. I was thinking on more of 97 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:33.519 the culture of the community you're in. So, Chris, using you as 98 00:08:33.519 --> 00:08:39.159 an example again, you're in Orlando, when you started your business and there's 99 00:08:39.200 --> 00:08:43.840 a culture and Orlando. Have you found that there's any cultural shifts that you've 100 00:08:43.840 --> 00:08:48.240 had to make now that you're up north? A difference between South and north? 101 00:08:48.559 --> 00:08:52.399 You know, certain and I mean and I'm from the northeast originally, 102 00:08:52.639 --> 00:08:58.120 but so there was definitely a culture shift moving down to Florida. But Florida 103 00:08:58.240 --> 00:09:01.919 certainly change over the fifteen years that I was there and now coming back. 104 00:09:03.399 --> 00:09:07.840 Yeah, I mean I'm realizing, you know, I was working from home, 105 00:09:07.279 --> 00:09:11.759 you know, when I first moved up here back to Massachusetts, and 106 00:09:11.960 --> 00:09:16.039 now I'm finding more opportunities to really get out and get back out into the 107 00:09:16.039 --> 00:09:20.759 city and just kind of like reconnecting. I don't notice that there there's an 108 00:09:20.799 --> 00:09:24.600 energy in different places that you go and you know, cultural energy of how 109 00:09:24.639 --> 00:09:30.679 people interact, different speed apace of doing business, and I'm just trying to, 110 00:09:30.799 --> 00:09:33.159 you know, get back and step with that, that that type of 111 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:37.519 bead or that that vibe that's up here in Massachusetts compared to, you know, 112 00:09:37.600 --> 00:09:41.720 the slower, more chill pace of a Florida, which is in a 113 00:09:41.759 --> 00:09:43.679 bad thing by any means. I enjoyed that, but you know, now 114 00:09:43.720 --> 00:09:50.200 it's in the you know, I I need something and I need it now. 115 00:09:50.240 --> 00:09:52.559 And you know, no, there's no you're on lunch. It's it's 116 00:09:52.639 --> 00:09:58.080 let's get it done type thing up here. So it's a lot of let 117 00:09:58.120 --> 00:10:01.600 me take a kick of this. Lott take a kick ou so boy, 118 00:10:01.720 --> 00:10:09.200 Chris has his cultural business experience, the difference between Florida and Boston. Right 119 00:10:09.240 --> 00:10:13.480 now he's back in Boston. And now it also sounds like we're on packing 120 00:10:13.759 --> 00:10:22.639 service. is a that's working. All right. Let's seeking simmlar service and 121 00:10:22.720 --> 00:10:28.200 we're also going to be unpacking, getting social. HMM, now we're not 122 00:10:28.360 --> 00:10:31.919 doing the social thing. Ah Wait, wait, we started doing this social 123 00:10:33.320 --> 00:10:39.720 we have. How much more social bunch it took acting like the extra verse. 124 00:10:41.960 --> 00:10:46.480 If you guys are my accountability career, you're you know I I have 125 00:10:46.559 --> 00:10:50.080 deadlines to meet. Now with it. It's not just in my own things. 126 00:10:50.639 --> 00:10:54.320 got a trick my miss what I would say? Shalana looks like she's 127 00:10:54.480 --> 00:11:01.919 change her business culture and the way she's delivering her service on extc she doesn't 128 00:11:01.919 --> 00:11:09.639 seem as rigid. You know, she doesn't seem as buy the book stuck 129 00:11:09.720 --> 00:11:16.679 up before. That'stening up. You know what it must be that more structured 130 00:11:16.879 --> 00:11:26.519 feeling of being on the mainland and now coming back hold things to throw it 131 00:11:26.600 --> 00:11:31.360 back at you. We you know your chill island. Let's talk about this 132 00:11:31.399 --> 00:11:35.559 for a while. We had to implemence shot clocks for season two. That's 133 00:11:35.600 --> 00:11:41.639 what I'm relaxed now, because you know, times limited. You know, 134 00:11:41.879 --> 00:11:46.279 it looks like we got a little more structures, just like an olden for 135 00:11:46.440 --> 00:11:50.879 two minutes and now minutes for me to unpack coming to one. Why give 136 00:11:50.960 --> 00:11:56.480 them a for me this? So what these discussions be? Three minutes? 137 00:11:58.679 --> 00:12:05.399 So we going to three met its. Now she got jokes. Seasons really 138 00:12:05.600 --> 00:12:11.600 put you up. Yeah, now I got three minutes. I anything up 139 00:12:11.639 --> 00:12:16.480 in about I need a full ten. I just in all full time for 140 00:12:16.559 --> 00:12:20.480 myself, like I got it. I need the full ten. I need 141 00:12:20.519 --> 00:12:28.159 like Chris, could you reset the clock, like how could you graphic skills, 142 00:12:28.559 --> 00:12:31.960 you know. You know the beautiful thing about time? If you don't 143 00:12:31.120 --> 00:12:37.159 use it effectively, you lose it. There's so setting the clock right and 144 00:12:37.279 --> 00:12:41.960 that's one of the reasons we put stop PACs on these conversations. And it's 145 00:12:41.039 --> 00:12:48.919 like you gotta say say it now. Drinking now. I'll just sit my 146 00:12:50.000 --> 00:12:56.600 team out my business, and then so I got along so so now we're 147 00:12:56.639 --> 00:13:01.120 not even just having fun with it. We're showing them that, once we 148 00:13:01.279 --> 00:13:05.759 establish a structure within the business, we could also efficiently right and now we're 149 00:13:05.759 --> 00:13:09.840 not wasting time. We got to get our points across and we could still 150 00:13:09.879 --> 00:13:15.000 be interested at the same time. Is That's how that's going to implementing processes. 151 00:13:15.960 --> 00:13:20.639 Yes, processes of progress, yea, like one of the extra P 152 00:13:20.799 --> 00:13:33.279 and dear professional processes of progress. There how many? How many takes of 153 00:13:33.919 --> 00:13:39.279 what you're sipping while you tripping did you do before before we hit record? 154 00:13:39.440 --> 00:13:43.639 I've been practicing all day, all day death. I still even got on 155 00:13:43.759 --> 00:13:46.240 a shirt. Right now. I'm like trying to figure out how to finest 156 00:13:46.279 --> 00:13:48.840 it. I just don't want to leave back too far. So in that 157 00:13:48.879 --> 00:13:54.039 way they started seeing different. You know, what we need is EXTC shirts. 158 00:13:54.240 --> 00:14:01.080 And how about that? Coming soon, coming, seeing that sounds like 159 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:07.960 a movie. She's giving a portion of that. She's like that's coming soon. 160 00:14:07.159 --> 00:14:11.120 This so you gonna Watch? I mean, when you really think about 161 00:14:11.159 --> 00:14:16.039 it, in business, right, we launched this podcast in the beginning of 162 00:14:16.039 --> 00:14:20.600 the year. Believe it or not, we did an entire first we restructured 163 00:14:20.720 --> 00:14:24.840 based on the feedback from our community for season two, and now we're on 164 00:14:26.000 --> 00:14:30.399 barking on season two. So you know, you never know what's coming soon. 165 00:14:30.720 --> 00:14:33.480 You know what topics were going to be talking about, what t shirts 166 00:14:33.720 --> 00:14:41.360 or glasses or merchandise maybe in the works? You always got to be thinking 167 00:14:41.399 --> 00:14:46.480 ahead, likely in some shine glasses, to continue to grow your back classes, 168 00:14:48.720 --> 00:14:56.440 Crisp. So we have five seconds. Chris impressed me with this next 169 00:14:56.440 --> 00:15:00.399 graphic. What we got? This is on. You Trust and here we 170 00:15:00.440 --> 00:15:09.759 go. So like I love with them. vertible. That's so little. 171 00:15:09.919 --> 00:15:13.039 Kind of shout out to see Nadia. Hey girl, hey, yes, 172 00:15:16.879 --> 00:15:18.519 no, no, no, no, we're not doing that. Be Talking 173 00:15:18.559 --> 00:15:22.279 to Nati a little bit more. Good this season. You're going to see 174 00:15:22.279 --> 00:15:26.639 her in front the cameras versus behind. There we go. No, I 175 00:15:26.720 --> 00:15:30.879 don't do that. This is my segment, but only have three thirty level 176 00:15:31.759 --> 00:15:37.399 detouring the detour. Yeah, we are in the convertible, the Free Spirit 177 00:15:37.519 --> 00:15:43.759 car. Huh. Usually whenever we come up with a topic, Tristan has 178 00:15:43.799 --> 00:15:48.080 to be the devil's advocate. YEA, his tangent off the highway and this 179 00:15:48.279 --> 00:15:54.639 excursion doing the scenic route. So we decided to give him his own three 180 00:15:54.799 --> 00:16:02.159 minutes and something seconds to track. So Go Tristan. All right, guys, 181 00:16:02.159 --> 00:16:04.960 so we see how this is working. They have definitely discriminated against me 182 00:16:06.279 --> 00:16:10.120 building the Caribbean. We definitely saw what happened. Is that give me a 183 00:16:10.120 --> 00:16:14.919 little comp car to symbolize a freedom of the discussions that I bring to the 184 00:16:14.960 --> 00:16:18.440 table. It's not just completely structure, but I'm like, Hey, guys, 185 00:16:18.440 --> 00:16:22.399 we need to win hi here, and you know what you Wanta to 186 00:16:22.440 --> 00:16:26.799 me? She gave me a Hon. they really on Shalani. You know 187 00:16:26.799 --> 00:16:30.679 what I mean. You find a Ga. I heard the hot crisp beat. 188 00:16:34.279 --> 00:16:37.919 You stole less my thing. I feel like you guys cheated me. 189 00:16:37.320 --> 00:16:44.960 How See, I took a Hon, two hundred and twenty five less dude 190 00:16:45.039 --> 00:16:49.320 with I need more time, guys. You really want to make that convertible 191 00:16:49.360 --> 00:16:53.600 Caribbean, we need to have some Caribbean color soul music playing at card rate. 192 00:16:53.679 --> 00:17:00.240 Invite. There we go. It's in addition, just spoke about business 193 00:17:00.240 --> 00:17:07.079 culture. Of all dog from the Caribbean. Chris is Boston. I'm this 194 00:17:07.200 --> 00:17:11.039 is how it goes it, Michael, will be no Caribbean music, no 195 00:17:11.200 --> 00:17:15.480 REGGAE, nothing. We're gonna be listening to wrap, a rapple, maybe 196 00:17:15.559 --> 00:17:22.839 some rb, little baby faces. Yes, that's the Nice thing about when 197 00:17:22.880 --> 00:17:27.960 I'm working, I usually put on Afro Beats, hm or neo soul or 198 00:17:29.200 --> 00:17:37.240 high school jazz. It depends and how much mental concentration project requires determines the 199 00:17:37.359 --> 00:17:42.359 genre of music that I will be playing as I'm working to execute the project. 200 00:17:42.880 --> 00:17:48.039 I'm guesting out of Youtube. Youtube study music like calm music. I 201 00:17:48.039 --> 00:17:51.920 can. I can't do lyrics unless it's in the language I don't understand, 202 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:56.880 my God, because otherwise I am focusing on on the lyrics. I love 203 00:17:56.000 --> 00:18:02.000 the work in this section. This is awesome. No, something. Torchris 204 00:18:02.160 --> 00:18:07.240 is over here. That like coffe place for three hours. No, we 205 00:18:07.319 --> 00:18:15.160 want there are boom, boom, you know, goods of not that Afro 206 00:18:15.319 --> 00:18:19.680 Beats. I don't know how. If we saw krong, was like don't, 207 00:18:19.720 --> 00:18:25.759 don't, don't. Have a song called my African Queen. I remember 208 00:18:25.759 --> 00:18:27.640 that Song. That's the closest thing that I really like to a fro that 209 00:18:27.799 --> 00:18:32.119 even counts is after our row beats, you know what I mean? It 210 00:18:32.240 --> 00:18:34.799 couns his Afro Beats. That's a little in that way back and I throw 211 00:18:34.880 --> 00:18:41.400 back. Let's not do that, because it's not really old enough to throw 212 00:18:41.519 --> 00:18:52.039 back, but it's getting there to be on a throwback about what's coming soon 213 00:18:52.119 --> 00:18:57.480 in the future and you just focus all the way back. You have it 214 00:18:57.519 --> 00:19:07.480 on a mixtape TRIPIAN summer, summer jams idea. So my rights up. 215 00:19:07.599 --> 00:19:21.319 Let's go detailed. All right, next segment. All right, souvenirs of 216 00:19:22.119 --> 00:19:25.680 the trip. We gotta take home something. So the whole idea behind it 217 00:19:25.799 --> 00:19:30.279 is souvenirs. This season is based on whatever topic we unpack, we're going 218 00:19:30.319 --> 00:19:34.960 to give you some takeaways that you can hopefully remember and possibly apply in your 219 00:19:36.039 --> 00:19:41.880 businesses and on your entrepreneurial trip. So from this conversation, a couple of 220 00:19:41.960 --> 00:19:48.960 takeaways that I got were one, there's a culture shift and pace depending on 221 00:19:49.119 --> 00:19:55.920 where you're at, where your conduct business right, or even where you're from. 222 00:19:56.920 --> 00:20:00.720 That can shift how the Temple of how you manage Your Business Right. 223 00:20:00.920 --> 00:20:03.920 So that's one takeaway that I got. The second takeaway that I wow, 224 00:20:06.359 --> 00:20:08.839 what do you mean? Wow, imprest, but I like it right, 225 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:18.319 I like it is portion, but anything bay from this second one, the 226 00:20:18.839 --> 00:20:25.160 takeaway is that as you are working on growing your business, you gotta be 227 00:20:25.400 --> 00:20:30.920 thinking forward as to what's coming soon, but take time to reflect backwards on 228 00:20:30.359 --> 00:20:34.079 but in the rear view mirror, to see what it is that you've accomplished 229 00:20:34.119 --> 00:20:38.680 so far, because sometimes we tend to focus on what we haven't done and 230 00:20:38.880 --> 00:20:45.480 don't really celebrate how far we've come as we're also thinking towards the future. 231 00:20:45.599 --> 00:20:48.119 So that's your second takeaway. Take a moment to take a post, to 232 00:20:48.200 --> 00:20:52.440 check, looking to review, see what you've accomplished, see where you are 233 00:20:52.559 --> 00:20:56.200 now, but look full speed ahead as to where you need to move forward 234 00:20:56.279 --> 00:21:00.359 in the future. So that's takeaway number two. And the last take away 235 00:21:00.440 --> 00:21:07.319 that I have for this section. Your Souvenir is, as you tripping, 236 00:21:07.400 --> 00:21:14.880 you need some music, whatever music works for you. Right, okay, 237 00:21:17.279 --> 00:21:22.000 and even if it means sipping on some mango whiskey to loosen up those in 238 00:21:22.640 --> 00:21:27.519 you know you gotta keep it moving. So that's your three takeaways. Anything 239 00:21:27.559 --> 00:21:30.160 you guys want to add me? That a minute of forty six seconds. 240 00:21:32.119 --> 00:21:36.839 Well, I'll go next, and some tea, maybe man tea. That's 241 00:21:36.880 --> 00:21:40.160 going to be tours real quick. So one of the things I just took 242 00:21:40.160 --> 00:21:44.480 away was damn, you did a season wrap up before we even started the 243 00:21:44.519 --> 00:21:48.480 season and will need more time with this segment to just for me, but 244 00:21:48.599 --> 00:21:51.799 E. Secondly, what I'm really share what you guys is that, well, 245 00:21:51.839 --> 00:21:55.599 my think away is is that when I go on trips I get souvenirs, 246 00:21:55.640 --> 00:22:00.039 I'll bring them back for people and sometimes I never give it to I 247 00:22:00.200 --> 00:22:06.720 still got supernirs a mom dresser right now, shot glasses from our battles that 248 00:22:06.759 --> 00:22:11.799 are brought back from people that they've never got. Right, does that even 249 00:22:11.920 --> 00:22:15.920 count? It doesn't, right, because if you never get the suvenirs, 250 00:22:15.960 --> 00:22:21.079 not worth everything. But what? That's all it is but pounds. If 251 00:22:21.200 --> 00:22:25.200 you're going to utilize it and share it in some capacity, maybe you don't 252 00:22:25.240 --> 00:22:26.680 give it to the people you brought it for. But when you have people 253 00:22:26.799 --> 00:22:33.279 over doing use the short classes are just there and I'm like I'm gonna give 254 00:22:33.279 --> 00:22:36.640 it to him, but I've just never given it to him. And I'm 255 00:22:36.680 --> 00:22:40.119 will give Chris about ten seconds because he always got some gold and stuff. 256 00:22:40.279 --> 00:22:44.960 Right. But this is my point. I don't meantphor and it's also realistic. 257 00:22:45.359 --> 00:22:48.240 Those shot classes that I've got for other people. Sometimes we see podcast 258 00:22:48.720 --> 00:22:51.839 and we're like man, I got to share with so much, but we 259 00:22:51.960 --> 00:22:55.079 never share it. We never liked it, we never commented, we don't 260 00:22:55.480 --> 00:23:00.799 think. Don't be like me. Give people there's so manires. All right, 261 00:23:00.119 --> 00:23:03.759 so like comment, share this with your friends. That's nothing about God, 262 00:23:03.880 --> 00:23:07.119 Chris, you got ten get out here. Let's see what he does. 263 00:23:08.000 --> 00:23:12.960 What I took from the segment is that season two is definitely changing and 264 00:23:14.119 --> 00:23:18.200 we have new segments coming up and we're staying on time. As my takeaway, 265 00:23:18.279 --> 00:23:29.440 for I hate this moving into the next we can spice it up a 266 00:23:29.480 --> 00:23:37.680 little bit. Well, well, push a Landa's view in a window. 267 00:23:37.759 --> 00:23:41.119 That's what we got to do. Well, yeah, mighty is fabulous. 268 00:23:41.599 --> 00:23:48.880 So this is the taken the view segment where I will bring a quote or 269 00:23:48.000 --> 00:23:53.920 a proverb to the table and just hopefully have it somewhat, it be a 270 00:23:53.960 --> 00:23:57.319 line or culminate with what we're talking about in a segment. It is obviously 271 00:23:57.359 --> 00:24:02.960 difficult to prepare that ahead of time, but I'm because I don't think you 272 00:24:03.039 --> 00:24:04.759 go on it, so let not think. I'll wait with this. I 273 00:24:04.839 --> 00:24:17.960 got was like yeah, Goris, he's proverbs, you know whatever. Then 274 00:24:18.039 --> 00:24:22.400 to come to him. Never I'm going to give you two roomy quotes back 275 00:24:22.440 --> 00:24:30.160 to back all the first you are not a drop in the ocean, you 276 00:24:30.279 --> 00:24:36.559 are the entire ocean in a drop, and I say that as empowerment for 277 00:24:37.160 --> 00:24:41.200 entrepreneurs moving forward. That it can be scary out here, and this is 278 00:24:41.240 --> 00:24:45.079 why we do this trip, is it feels like we're alone. Sometimes we're 279 00:24:45.119 --> 00:24:48.000 just another drop in the ocean. Our business is just another drop of the 280 00:24:48.079 --> 00:24:52.039 ocean. But when you realize that you are the entire ocean in a drop 281 00:24:52.160 --> 00:24:56.200 and you have everything you need, then you are really on the journey to 282 00:24:56.839 --> 00:25:02.880 being a master of entrepreneurship. The follow up quote back that up. We 283 00:25:03.359 --> 00:25:11.400 don't. We don't discuss let's should have bet you money. I want to 284 00:25:11.440 --> 00:25:18.160 think richer tonight. This second one can be. This second one can be, 285 00:25:18.200 --> 00:25:22.680 but this, this somewhat is segue from the first one, which is 286 00:25:22.920 --> 00:25:26.119 why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open? It's 287 00:25:26.200 --> 00:25:32.279 time to to we've gone into our vocation from season one. We have been 288 00:25:32.400 --> 00:25:37.079 our cocoon. It is time to come out as the beautiful butterflies that we 289 00:25:37.200 --> 00:25:41.519 are in season two as entrepreneurs, spread our wing, show our colors and 290 00:25:42.200 --> 00:25:47.839 take new flights and new heights on this entrepreneurial journey. What you got from 291 00:25:47.920 --> 00:25:56.279 me? I got some. I like that. I you did it, 292 00:25:56.440 --> 00:26:00.640 Chris Ain't no, here's what with throw a little shade. I feel. 293 00:26:00.680 --> 00:26:04.559 That's my girl, Nadia. Yeah, that's for you. You've got the 294 00:26:04.680 --> 00:26:10.079 talent, baby. You've been doing the work. We just need to look 295 00:26:10.599 --> 00:26:15.759 to hop on this entrepreneur trip with us, Nadia. We're gonna get you 296 00:26:15.920 --> 00:26:21.599 out here, we're gonna talk about it. The prison door open. It's 297 00:26:21.759 --> 00:26:25.480 open, Babe. Just come on in, but afairs, it is to 298 00:26:25.559 --> 00:26:30.759 the guests. Yeah, it's outside. We have we just got a call 299 00:26:30.880 --> 00:26:38.079 for a battle rap. All right, well, let's just bring us home. 300 00:26:38.160 --> 00:26:42.519 We don't have shot clock right now. This is just the goodbye for 301 00:26:42.599 --> 00:26:47.079 the day, but we just wanted to say that we are, at least. 302 00:26:47.079 --> 00:26:51.000 I know I am very excited about season two here. I love the 303 00:26:51.039 --> 00:26:53.920 new changes, love the new field, the new VIBE, and we're just 304 00:26:53.960 --> 00:26:56.759 going to keep pushing on and I would love to know your thoughts on what 305 00:26:56.799 --> 00:27:00.839 you'd like to hear out there, trippers.

Yeah, 309 00:27:11.920 --> 00:27:14.559 I definitely agree with my boy Chris. I'm sorry, Slon, this is 310 00:27:14.680 --> 00:27:19.640 one time we're going to go last to start the season to you know, 311 00:27:19.759 --> 00:27:22.559 what I agree with, Chris is that we really want who's got a little 312 00:27:22.599 --> 00:27:26.240 for your insight, see where it's, your thoughts are, what it is 313 00:27:26.319 --> 00:27:29.640 that we can talk about things. That does intrigue a little more. You're 314 00:27:29.720 --> 00:27:33.160 not by yourself. We've been with this trip. I love to change this 315 00:27:33.400 --> 00:27:37.079 season two. I played about getting a little time. Really and truly, 316 00:27:37.079 --> 00:27:40.799 we're moving a lot more efficiently and I just want you to be a part 317 00:27:40.839 --> 00:27:44.160 of our role, to forget to like share, just here as all and 318 00:27:44.240 --> 00:27:48.079 just continue to be on the journey. You know, stop just looking at 319 00:27:48.160 --> 00:27:52.279 let's start engaging, all right, let's go make this pretty. Sulla, 320 00:27:52.599 --> 00:28:07.240 you left the best. I'm just sitting my tea business guys one and then. 321 00:28:10.279 --> 00:28:14.400 But let me tell you it, this has definitely been a trap. 322 00:28:14.599 --> 00:28:18.720 This entrepreneur trip has definitely been a trip. I am just so excited to 323 00:28:18.799 --> 00:28:22.319 be doing it alongside my two brows, salt and pepper, just an equation 324 00:28:26.160 --> 00:28:29.839 and I'm looking forward to our guests.
