You are in the Race, DON'T TRIP!

You are in the Race, DON'T TRIP!

We’ve made it to Series #3 of Season #1, where we discuss how being an entrepreneur is like being in a marathon… You must breathe and pace yourself! But now that you’re up and running and in the race, how do you make sure you don’t trip? The short answer, as the X.T.C. crew discusses in this episode, is that you can’t prevent tripping up every now and then. But what you CAN control is how you pick yourself up from that fall. And with the right mindset, you can start to mitigate how often and how hard you fall when you do inevitably trip up. Luckily, you’re still moving forward even when you’re falling. So, get those running shoes on and your band-aids ready, and join Xaulanda, Tristian, and Chris in this exciting race we call entrepreneurship!

WEBVTT 1 00:00:01.159 --> 00:00:08.400 Welcome to the entrepreneurs trip podcast with XTC. I'm Chalanda, I'm tested, 2 00:00:10.160 --> 00:00:16.839 I'm Chris. As an entrepreneur starting or rowing your business, you may have 3 00:00:16.920 --> 00:00:21.879 a destination, but the journey getting there and be it's rip. We want 4 00:00:21.920 --> 00:00:26.839 to be your travel companions and inject a dose of XTC as we explore real 5 00:00:26.879 --> 00:00:34.159 life conversations about navigating the world entrepreneurship in the US and the Caribbean. Take 6 00:00:34.240 --> 00:00:44.399 this trip with us. Hello trippers, we are so excited because we have 7 00:00:44.479 --> 00:00:53.439 completed two series of season one. So you are now listening to season one, 8 00:00:53.479 --> 00:00:57.960 series three, episode one. And what the heck are we talking about 9 00:00:58.039 --> 00:01:00.679 on this trip? While we're talking about being an entrepreneur, it's like being 10 00:01:00.719 --> 00:01:06.480 in the marathon. So you need to breathe and you need to pace yourself, 11 00:01:06.560 --> 00:01:10.040 but when you're in the race, try not to trip folks. The 12 00:01:10.159 --> 00:01:14.359 start is clear, but where's the finish line? So we're talking about you 13 00:01:14.400 --> 00:01:18.120 know, the last two series we talked about who you are as entrepreneur. 14 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:22.439 We talked about why you started your business. So you're in the race, 15 00:01:22.560 --> 00:01:26.040 you have signed up, you have your number on your chest, you have 16 00:01:26.200 --> 00:01:33.680 passed the start line and you're in this entreprene s preneurial Mariton. So we 17 00:01:33.719 --> 00:01:38.560 started, but where are we going? We're gonna be talking about today. 18 00:01:38.879 --> 00:01:44.040 Right, we got we're in it. We're deep in it. Right. 19 00:01:44.560 --> 00:01:49.840 Done a couple of miles. We we're starting to get over the nostalgia of, 20 00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:53.879 Oh my God, I'm not to Pregnore, I'm doing my own thing, 21 00:01:55.159 --> 00:01:59.560 and the reality is trying to hit you like king a forehead. But 22 00:01:59.599 --> 00:02:08.840 we got to keep it moving. That hurts heard. Everything is time and 23 00:02:09.000 --> 00:02:16.759 everything is time and time and every timing an opportunity. So, Christan, 24 00:02:16.960 --> 00:02:21.879 you're in the race. How do you make sure that you don't trip? 25 00:02:23.280 --> 00:02:29.639 Unfortunately, you do trip, you do trip Um and it's going to happen. 26 00:02:29.680 --> 00:02:31.560 It's going to happen. Naturally, if you do anything long enough, 27 00:02:31.719 --> 00:02:38.520 some blunder is bound, bound to happen. And is at that moment where 28 00:02:38.520 --> 00:02:42.840 you kind of defined what it is that takes place when you trip up? 29 00:02:43.719 --> 00:02:46.159 Is this where you decide we're going to follow you trying to recover? And 30 00:02:46.199 --> 00:02:50.439 that's where it is that I think that we're at. But remember a lot 31 00:02:50.520 --> 00:02:54.560 of the Times only blunder, it's because we haven't been pacing ourselves and that's 32 00:02:54.599 --> 00:02:59.000 what it is. You know, you take off and like, okay, 33 00:02:59.039 --> 00:03:01.919 we only did I want to say, eight episodes, because they were counting 34 00:03:01.960 --> 00:03:07.439 off, having fun with that, but do those eight episodes. You made 35 00:03:07.479 --> 00:03:09.240 it seem as if like these things happen like boom boom, boom, boom 36 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:14.879 boo. However, if we keep it this boom boom boom boo boom page, 37 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:16.960 two things going to take place. One, we're going to burn out 38 00:03:17.879 --> 00:03:22.520 and too, we're definitely tripping up and we're not tripping the way that I'm 39 00:03:22.639 --> 00:03:24.319 trepping. Ours want to trip because you want to trip. I don't want 40 00:03:24.360 --> 00:03:28.280 to send an island on a beach, because that's overrated to me. Cousin, 41 00:03:28.680 --> 00:03:31.479 I'm on an island with a beach and I'll go, you know, 42 00:03:32.960 --> 00:03:42.479 for our folks off just up Massachusetts, for cynam. It's rainy. It's 43 00:03:42.520 --> 00:03:46.719 like enough for exactly. Girl. Chris is not feeling an analogy right now. 44 00:03:47.039 --> 00:03:52.800 Just tell me about the Margarita you're drinking right now on the beach or 45 00:03:52.840 --> 00:04:03.759 some reach osen on the beach. is a bushwhacker good stuff right there. 46 00:04:05.400 --> 00:04:09.360 Just just give me the give me the coconut with a straw, and I'm 47 00:04:09.400 --> 00:04:16.720 like that tell we had no more like just doing that little trip up, 48 00:04:16.920 --> 00:04:19.120 you know, and that's where it is. We got to realize that we 49 00:04:19.199 --> 00:04:25.160 gotta pace ourselves. So we're not just gonna keep moving. Here's where it 50 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:28.360 is that we reassess a little bit. So we tripped up. When we 51 00:04:28.480 --> 00:04:30.319 trip up, we were thinking about our right. So one you lost your 52 00:04:30.360 --> 00:04:33.600 pace. What is it, or where is it that I need to be? 53 00:04:34.120 --> 00:04:39.480 Because even when you blundered, the beauty of blundering that no one is 54 00:04:39.720 --> 00:04:44.040 going to tell you because you're still moving forward. You're still moving forward. 55 00:04:44.439 --> 00:04:47.079 You didn't stop, and that's just it. So during these blunders, we 56 00:04:47.199 --> 00:04:50.800 just want to continue to move forward. Put in perspective. What the goal? 57 00:04:50.879 --> 00:04:55.079 We assessed our steps and now we know. Maybe I'll just move it 58 00:04:55.120 --> 00:04:58.240 a little too fast. Let me fall back. I'm still in the race, 59 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:01.600 I can still make it. You know what? It was just a 60 00:05:01.959 --> 00:05:05.680 was an as testament check. That's what it was. That's what it was. 61 00:05:06.040 --> 00:05:09.879 I saw a pebble, you know. Oh wait, that's what that 62 00:05:09.959 --> 00:05:13.399 way. Let me watch the next step. We're going to keep moving forward. 63 00:05:14.839 --> 00:05:17.800 Sounds good, feels good. Trip out. Yeah, like that. 64 00:05:17.920 --> 00:05:25.920 Analogy hanging with Chris a little bit. I've been hang I know ready some 65 00:05:26.800 --> 00:05:31.480 sen words of wisdom to come after that one. I'll just continue on on 66 00:05:31.680 --> 00:05:41.079 Tristan's race analogy here and that as a runner he run multiple races and as 67 00:05:41.079 --> 00:05:46.319 an entrepreneur there are multiple finish lines and multiple little races that you're that you're 68 00:05:46.399 --> 00:05:51.199 running every day. And and to Tristan's point, when you run, I'm 69 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:55.759 not races, you're going to trip, you're going to fall, but that's 70 00:05:55.879 --> 00:06:00.040 just one race on the way to one milestone. And you might, I 71 00:06:00.519 --> 00:06:03.160 not win every race. You might, you know, not even place in 72 00:06:03.240 --> 00:06:08.600 the in the top few on some races. But at the end of the 73 00:06:08.720 --> 00:06:14.079 day, as a runner, you you continue to build on on your strings 74 00:06:14.120 --> 00:06:19.160 and build and improve and use those those trip ups as motivation and fuel to 75 00:06:19.279 --> 00:06:25.879 keep going, as opposed to barriers from getting back up. If you if 76 00:06:25.920 --> 00:06:29.160 you fall, say I hurt my knee, I'm done. That's one thing, 77 00:06:29.240 --> 00:06:31.360 but a lot of people you know, if you have the courage to 78 00:06:31.399 --> 00:06:34.839 do the Rehab to get back out there, you can come back stronger than 79 00:06:34.920 --> 00:06:40.759 you were before you fell. So let me answ you guys a question, 80 00:06:40.839 --> 00:06:43.399 since we're using this analogy of a race. How many of you guys have 81 00:06:44.120 --> 00:06:48.639 light trained for like a five K or a key? Can I tell you 82 00:06:48.720 --> 00:06:57.560 my training regimen for running? Pie said money? Yeah, well, I 83 00:06:57.639 --> 00:07:00.920 have my own fatory to share about that. I don't. I don't think 84 00:07:00.959 --> 00:07:03.839 this is going to be where you were going with it. But my my 85 00:07:04.000 --> 00:07:08.040 method for a five case, since I don't do them often, is that 86 00:07:08.160 --> 00:07:11.399 if I start training for them, I'm going to get sore before the race 87 00:07:12.079 --> 00:07:16.240 because I never start early enough. So but if I if I don't train 88 00:07:16.319 --> 00:07:19.720 at all, I can always go out that first time and just run and 89 00:07:19.720 --> 00:07:21.800 I know I'm going to be hurt in the next day. So that's what 90 00:07:21.879 --> 00:07:25.519 I do for five keys. I don't train at all. So I have 91 00:07:25.680 --> 00:07:29.279 all that energy for the one day, but I I am hurting on the 92 00:07:29.319 --> 00:07:32.360 back end. So know, I know, that's ties not entrepreneurship at all, 93 00:07:32.399 --> 00:07:38.240 but no. Well, it does tie in time because it talks about 94 00:07:38.279 --> 00:07:42.439 the level of preparation, right, that you go in before you started that, 95 00:07:42.519 --> 00:07:45.120 and we talked a little bit about that in the previous series. Right, 96 00:07:45.240 --> 00:07:47.000 like you have this idea to start a business. Do you do the 97 00:07:47.079 --> 00:07:49.639 business plan? Do you do the feasibility study. It's like, do you 98 00:07:49.759 --> 00:07:54.240 do those preparations before you get into the race or do you get into the 99 00:07:54.399 --> 00:07:57.639 race and you just be prepared that you're going to be sore as Hell Y, 100 00:07:57.920 --> 00:08:01.920 you know when you finished that particular milestone. But you'll learn as you 101 00:08:03.040 --> 00:08:07.839 go on. Where you going to jump in and say something interesting? Oh 102 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:11.319 yeah, to tell you about how I prepared for my five kid. Yeah, 103 00:08:11.720 --> 00:08:16.639 but so first I got to know, you know, the I want 104 00:08:16.639 --> 00:08:18.839 to call the company. It's called being H. I go to be an 105 00:08:20.000 --> 00:08:22.680 H and I look up the laptop that I want and in that preparation I 106 00:08:22.839 --> 00:08:26.959 check the spects. After I checked spects and I add. You know, 107 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:31.199 I didn't want one Tara, by tot. Wanted to tell by sixteen gigg 108 00:08:31.279 --> 00:08:33.919 a memory the one chip, and I got it and I added to the 109 00:08:35.000 --> 00:08:39.240 cart. Then it adds up and it usually says something about k and then 110 00:08:43.720 --> 00:08:58.639 that's another. So we're not talking how we weren't through that, but I 111 00:08:58.759 --> 00:09:07.480 do want that laughed outright. But Chicken Tur's gonna okay. I love it 112 00:09:07.639 --> 00:09:11.919 because it talks about it. It speaks to having different perspectives. Yr we 113 00:09:11.240 --> 00:09:13.600 I did say, how do you prepare for K. I didn't say a 114 00:09:13.720 --> 00:09:18.759 five k raise or a marathon. Chris got where I was going with the 115 00:09:18.840 --> 00:09:22.480 interest in you know, how to serve a curve box. But that's good, 116 00:09:22.919 --> 00:09:26.720 but let's let's take it to the race, right. Let me share 117 00:09:26.919 --> 00:09:33.440 my experience of when I attempted to train for a five K. now, 118 00:09:35.240 --> 00:09:43.480 I don't like running and I have a friend to white who loves to run. 119 00:09:43.159 --> 00:09:46.120 I mean he'll just run because of the hell of it. He'll run 120 00:09:46.279 --> 00:09:50.399 to get his high right. He'll run a K every weekend if they had 121 00:09:50.440 --> 00:09:54.879 a five k every weekend. He loves running. I don't freaking like to 122 00:09:54.960 --> 00:09:56.720 walk, like when I drive into a parking lot, I look with a 123 00:09:58.200 --> 00:10:01.759 closest bat to the door to the store that I need to go into, 124 00:10:01.120 --> 00:10:05.519 because I am about walking. I know about running, but he convinced me, 125 00:10:05.279 --> 00:10:07.600 Oh my God, Showana Da, you need to train for a five 126 00:10:07.639 --> 00:10:11.519 kake because you're not. You're going to love it. And it's similar to 127 00:10:11.720 --> 00:10:16.200 entrepreneurship. You know you you do it because it's really something you're passionate about. 128 00:10:18.159 --> 00:10:22.960 It's a change you want to see in the world. I don't think 129 00:10:22.120 --> 00:10:26.039 entrepreneurship is something you get into because other people think you should do it. 130 00:10:26.840 --> 00:10:31.879 Okay, but I buckled to the pressure. Would admit a buckle to the 131 00:10:31.919 --> 00:10:33.799 pressure of my friend D White, because I love him and we have a 132 00:10:33.879 --> 00:10:39.559 great time together. I love his family. We're going to do this K 133 00:10:39.799 --> 00:10:46.000 together. So we start training in the mornings and every time we go out 134 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:48.799 he's I don't worry, we're going to go at your own pace. Just 135 00:10:48.960 --> 00:10:54.240 remember to breathe, and every time we go out I'm cussing him like what 136 00:10:54.480 --> 00:10:58.759 the hell did I agree to? Like when is this fivekke coming? Because 137 00:10:58.840 --> 00:11:03.360 I need this commitment to be over. It is torture. Well, Bam 138 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:07.519 blessings from the Gods, depending on how you look at it. COVID hits 139 00:11:07.639 --> 00:11:11.519 right and they cancel the K we were prepping for and I was like, 140 00:11:11.720 --> 00:11:15.399 thank you Jesus, there is a God right, because now I don't need 141 00:11:15.440 --> 00:11:18.720 to do it anymore. I need to do it anymore. Meanwhile, you 142 00:11:18.840 --> 00:11:22.679 know, for his birthday he does a K and I think that what it 143 00:11:22.799 --> 00:11:28.559 talks about is when you're entering this entrepreneurship marathon, when you enter it, 144 00:11:28.720 --> 00:11:33.080 you need to be very clear as to why you're entering it right what is 145 00:11:33.159 --> 00:11:39.159 your why and if there's an exit strategy when you enter right, some people 146 00:11:39.279 --> 00:11:43.559 go into it for the their lives, some people going to it to build 147 00:11:43.600 --> 00:11:48.360 a legacy, some people going to it to create something and then sell it 148 00:11:48.480 --> 00:11:52.840 off to somebody else. But when you start this race, this entrepreneurship race, 149 00:11:54.039 --> 00:11:56.919 it needs to be because you want to do it and you're not buckling 150 00:11:58.200 --> 00:12:01.279 to pressure and you need to be clear as to why you're doing it. 151 00:12:03.960 --> 00:12:11.320 And that's my bits of nuggets on my fack K and three, two one. 152 00:12:15.000 --> 00:12:18.919 So, Shalatna, the crazy thing about what you said that's so true, 153 00:12:18.039 --> 00:12:24.159 like so so true, is that the statement you said was be clear 154 00:12:24.240 --> 00:12:26.279 of the finish line. So what ends up happening is that I feel like, 155 00:12:26.360 --> 00:12:31.159 as an entrepreneur, I feel most people expect you to get into something 156 00:12:31.440 --> 00:12:37.159 for the long haul, and I'm gonna be completely honest with you guys, 157 00:12:37.440 --> 00:12:52.519 I have commitment issues. When you were talk about the K and how everything 158 00:12:52.639 --> 00:12:56.399 was coming together right, yeah, we said we got to be clear of 159 00:12:56.519 --> 00:13:01.600 the finish line, I was like yes, because what it is is that 160 00:13:01.600 --> 00:13:05.240 a lot of times I feel like people expect us to continue or proceed with 161 00:13:05.360 --> 00:13:09.440 something, but we don't get the fact that sometimes in life what we do 162 00:13:09.840 --> 00:13:13.360 consider, and you're still an entrepreneur, are people that start businesses and sell 163 00:13:13.919 --> 00:13:18.320 businesses. They don't have the to keep on your I don't know what expect. 164 00:13:18.320 --> 00:13:22.320 I don't want to call you like a entrepreneurial start up, you know, 165 00:13:22.480 --> 00:13:24.639 would you have the business to establish business, because some people just not 166 00:13:24.960 --> 00:13:30.039 good at starting businesses. They might be able to run it. Maintaining it. 167 00:13:30.519 --> 00:13:35.960 However, going through that start of process is not their process. That's 168 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:39.320 why we get coaches. You should. I'm saying the same through the K 169 00:13:39.679 --> 00:13:41.840 white. Yeah, get up, man, we could do this. You 170 00:13:41.919 --> 00:13:46.000 know, stretch a little. So we're gonna Start doing actually, you know, 171 00:13:46.120 --> 00:13:50.639 Dwight starts righting and then white looks back and he realized he's two miles 172 00:13:50.679 --> 00:13:54.080 ahead and he's a much lot of you right here. Just come. So 173 00:13:54.200 --> 00:13:58.120 maybe Salana's not that five k running, but what she, Alanna, can 174 00:13:58.240 --> 00:14:05.519 do it's run the hell out of a relay, and that's what's it's so 175 00:14:07.039 --> 00:14:16.720 right. I start this great over to you, Tris, and that's how 176 00:14:16.759 --> 00:14:18.399 it like, it goes, and that's the beauty of it. So, 177 00:14:18.559 --> 00:14:20.960 like when you said declare that finish line. I thought that that spoke so 178 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:24.519 much volumes to me. I was like, dawn, that's it. When 179 00:14:24.600 --> 00:14:26.759 you said, like you know, sometimes you just want to know. I 180 00:14:26.799 --> 00:14:31.720 don't want to call it quitting, but true, know, you know I'm 181 00:14:33.200 --> 00:14:37.320 not good at this. However, I'm good at starting it up. I 182 00:14:37.399 --> 00:14:41.080 could start it, Chris, I'll start a documentary. I'll do the paperwork 183 00:14:41.159 --> 00:14:43.919 for the documentary, but shooting is not my thing, you know. So 184 00:14:43.320 --> 00:14:46.840 here's a shot list, here's what it is, and now we could turn 185 00:14:46.960 --> 00:14:50.960 that over. So, as entrepreneurs, I don't want you to just think 186 00:14:50.039 --> 00:14:54.240 like you know, when you get into something it has to be a lifetime, 187 00:14:54.840 --> 00:14:58.480 but being entrepreneur just means that, you know, we're free enough. 188 00:14:58.600 --> 00:15:01.720 We changed what it is that we wanted to change. Who came in, 189 00:15:03.399 --> 00:15:07.519 we saw what it is and we started to do or start, I want 190 00:15:07.519 --> 00:15:11.039 to see, start that process. But we put together, we accomplish what 191 00:15:11.120 --> 00:15:15.759 we set out to do, you know, and that might not be running 192 00:15:15.840 --> 00:15:18.080 this business for ten years, fifteen years, thirty, the rest of our 193 00:15:18.159 --> 00:15:22.200 lives and might just be starting businesses. You know, you want to burger 194 00:15:22.320 --> 00:15:26.120 join. I know I could get a shift together. I got a grill. 195 00:15:26.559 --> 00:15:28.960 We could figure this out. Now we're doing burghers and the like. 196 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:31.600 Hatress, you know, wanted to start a mechanic shop. I'm like, 197 00:15:31.679 --> 00:15:33.919 okay, great, let me start these proposals, let me do this, 198 00:15:35.480 --> 00:15:37.240 and we could do it. And this is what we speak about it a 199 00:15:37.320 --> 00:15:41.519 lot. And this is what I want us to kind of see to is 200 00:15:41.679 --> 00:15:48.679 how our network determines our net work. You know. Yeah, and and 201 00:15:48.840 --> 00:15:52.960 I still sit. I'm on hand it back over to you. I don't 202 00:15:52.960 --> 00:15:58.279 want to get to to to which the time, to wearing a relay hand 203 00:15:58.360 --> 00:16:00.679 up a time over to Chris Man. I started this right. I thought, 204 00:16:03.679 --> 00:16:06.879 all right, I want to touch out the commitment issues. You self 205 00:16:08.559 --> 00:16:18.240 marry man. Well, well, he had a lot of practice. So 206 00:16:18.320 --> 00:16:25.360 I think with commitment issues, there's a couple things I kind of want to 207 00:16:25.399 --> 00:16:30.759 touch on here. Is With commitment as entrepreneur is it can be very difficult 208 00:16:30.759 --> 00:16:34.840 because we can run into the issue where we want to focus only on like 209 00:16:36.000 --> 00:16:41.440 the good parts of entrepreneurship or the good parts of Our our vision, but 210 00:16:41.919 --> 00:16:45.080 not wanting to do all the other things, which, honestly, usually is 211 00:16:45.120 --> 00:16:48.080 like ninety percent of what you actually do, as all the things you don't 212 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:51.279 want to do and ten percent of the time is spent doing the the thing 213 00:16:51.360 --> 00:16:56.000 you love. But with commitment into to Tristan's point, if you have that 214 00:16:56.080 --> 00:17:02.679 network around you, you can start delegating some of those tasks that you don't 215 00:17:02.679 --> 00:17:06.119 want to do. You can create processes for the things that you don't want 216 00:17:06.119 --> 00:17:11.960 to do so you can offload them. But the other element to commitment is 217 00:17:12.839 --> 00:17:15.640 that, as you know, kind of work for me is is understanding my 218 00:17:15.759 --> 00:17:21.720 own my own psychology and how I work as a human and knowing that while 219 00:17:21.880 --> 00:17:26.400 like, ideally I would be committed to sitting down and, you know, 220 00:17:26.440 --> 00:17:30.279 writing the blog post I need to do exactly in the time I need to 221 00:17:30.319 --> 00:17:33.480 do it and, you know, finishing everything on schedule, but I know 222 00:17:33.640 --> 00:17:37.839 that as a human, my brain is always coming in with the interruptions. 223 00:17:37.920 --> 00:17:42.519 So for the task that I don't like doing, such as you know, 224 00:17:42.599 --> 00:17:48.440 if training for a K is how can you tie something to that that you 225 00:17:48.559 --> 00:17:55.039 do enjoy to kind of balance out the dislike for it in the aversion to 226 00:17:55.160 --> 00:18:00.759 it? So just keeping along the line of running, I'm not a big 227 00:18:00.920 --> 00:18:04.519 runner or walker either. If you know, if I'm if I'm running, 228 00:18:04.519 --> 00:18:15.680 somebody chasing me and please help me, you know. But I was asked, 229 00:18:15.960 --> 00:18:19.839 you know, I'm a father of, at the time of this recording, 230 00:18:19.960 --> 00:18:23.440 of nine and a half month old, and I was told by somebody, 231 00:18:23.519 --> 00:18:26.400 you know, hey, you need to read this book, and I 232 00:18:26.480 --> 00:18:27.359 was like how, you know, how the hell am I going to read 233 00:18:27.359 --> 00:18:33.079 a book as as a father of a new kid? So what I ended 234 00:18:33.119 --> 00:18:34.799 up really and what I end up doing, I was and I was getting 235 00:18:34.799 --> 00:18:37.880 a little way too because I was, you know, just sitting there, 236 00:18:37.960 --> 00:18:44.640 I'll, watching the baby all the time. But I started walking and downloaded 237 00:18:44.720 --> 00:18:49.240 that book as a as an audio audiobook, and then I started and I 238 00:18:49.319 --> 00:18:52.920 was like, Oh, I've got to listen to the book I enjoy and 239 00:18:52.960 --> 00:18:55.440 then I started listening to a bunch of other books. But it got me 240 00:18:55.519 --> 00:18:59.759 out walking every day and before I knew it, I enjoyed going out and 241 00:18:59.839 --> 00:19:03.599 look forward to a task and I used to have an aversion to and I've 242 00:19:03.680 --> 00:19:10.000 heard it from other entrepreneurs as well who have said even, you know, 243 00:19:10.039 --> 00:19:14.799 like doing finances is like, you know, for me, is there couldn't 244 00:19:14.799 --> 00:19:18.359 be anything more boring to it. But if you say you have a partner 245 00:19:18.440 --> 00:19:22.039 in the podcast or or me with my wife going over like finances and stuff. 246 00:19:23.200 --> 00:19:26.200 We can do it on a night where we say hey, you know 247 00:19:26.279 --> 00:19:30.240 what, we're gonna do our finances and we're going to have a like a 248 00:19:30.359 --> 00:19:33.599 drink every you know, every time we get through a paper or every time 249 00:19:33.680 --> 00:19:36.960 we get through you know, filling out a thing, and then at the 250 00:19:37.039 --> 00:19:38.680 end we can celebrate and say we're you know, we're going to we're going 251 00:19:38.720 --> 00:19:41.440 to have a nice dinner afterwards or going to watch a movie afterwards. So 252 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:47.240 you kind of build like a some kind of entertainment or something you enjoy around 253 00:19:48.799 --> 00:19:52.359 that thing that you have a commitment issue with. I don't know if that 254 00:19:52.400 --> 00:19:59.480 works with relationships or anything like. So a lot this is the one episode 255 00:19:59.519 --> 00:20:03.079 we're going to be so cool because of over here, like someone. We 256 00:20:03.240 --> 00:20:14.799 gotta Bring Chris Home, you gotta Chris, yea. Well, well, 257 00:20:14.960 --> 00:20:30.119 you see what's last month. It helps, it helps. It's interesting because, 258 00:20:30.559 --> 00:20:38.119 you know, yes, yes, while I am commitment phobit, what 259 00:20:38.240 --> 00:20:41.880 I do realize, as you guys were talking, you know, my dad 260 00:20:42.000 --> 00:20:45.640 used to say it a lot and I alive inside says people, and I 261 00:20:45.720 --> 00:20:51.319 think it also pertains to things and business come into your life. Our reason, 262 00:20:51.559 --> 00:20:56.279 a season or a lifetime, and so you have to determine which one 263 00:20:56.359 --> 00:21:00.240 of those three your business is there to serve. Right, is it the 264 00:21:00.319 --> 00:21:04.440 reason, is it the season, or is it a lifetime? You know, 265 00:21:04.680 --> 00:21:08.240 we have our guests coming up who I think is a legacy builder. 266 00:21:08.440 --> 00:21:14.599 Right in a future episode she's going to be talking about her journey being a 267 00:21:14.640 --> 00:21:18.960 business owner and growing her business. She's building a legacy. So for her 268 00:21:18.160 --> 00:21:25.559 it's a lifetime and she's clear on that. Right. Not Every entrepreneur has 269 00:21:25.680 --> 00:21:29.680 that right. I would love mine to be a legacy. I'm still trying 270 00:21:29.680 --> 00:21:33.680 to figure out if it's for a reason, a season or a lifetime when 271 00:21:33.680 --> 00:21:37.720 it comes to my business, you know, because I've been in business before. 272 00:21:37.359 --> 00:21:41.000 It was for particular reason. It was just for a season and I 273 00:21:41.119 --> 00:21:45.640 had to move on. So I think that when you're in the race, 274 00:21:45.759 --> 00:21:49.000 coming into the race, because if you don't know where you're heading, it's 275 00:21:49.000 --> 00:21:52.720 almost like starting with the end in mind, right, if you don't know 276 00:21:52.799 --> 00:21:55.599 where you're heading, then wherever you end up, is that where you were 277 00:21:55.799 --> 00:21:59.839 to end up? You know. So you have to think through those things, 278 00:22:00.000 --> 00:22:04.920 I think. And in regards to doing things that you don't like to 279 00:22:06.000 --> 00:22:08.559 do so. For example, going back to the training for the K I 280 00:22:08.720 --> 00:22:11.799 was like, listen, if you want me to do this five K, 281 00:22:11.920 --> 00:22:15.279 we you. We got a train in the morning before I get too hot, 282 00:22:15.480 --> 00:22:19.400 because I want now to know Soun Right. And I'm like, if 283 00:22:19.440 --> 00:22:22.160 I can roll out of bed, put on my sneakers, go run, 284 00:22:22.440 --> 00:22:26.319 get the torture over early in the morning, then it sets me up for 285 00:22:26.359 --> 00:22:30.079 a good day, then I will do it right, because that's some like 286 00:22:30.200 --> 00:22:33.440 my peak time. But if you have spent me, to be running after 287 00:22:33.559 --> 00:22:36.240 o'clock in the afternoon is just not going to happen. And when is this 288 00:22:36.440 --> 00:22:41.799 race right? Because this racing is the warning. So then there's these parameters 289 00:22:41.960 --> 00:22:45.039 that you I was thinking the same thing. Yeah, to be able to 290 00:22:45.119 --> 00:22:48.559 determine. Now tennis. If you want me play tennis, I'll play tennis 291 00:22:48.599 --> 00:22:52.559 anytime, it any time of the day, right, because that's what I 292 00:22:52.680 --> 00:22:56.440 love, you know. So you gotta Know What Your Passion going back to 293 00:22:56.519 --> 00:23:02.279 the passion points and why you're in the race and what's really going to motivate 294 00:23:02.359 --> 00:23:06.279 you and keep you going, whether it's a reason, a season our lifetime. 295 00:23:06.880 --> 00:23:11.440 And I'll add one other element of commitment here is as entrepreneurs, it's 296 00:23:11.480 --> 00:23:19.480 also okay to say no do to taking on too many commit favorite. But 297 00:23:19.519 --> 00:23:26.559 I I don't pull out of my toolbox enough. But that's usually my default. 298 00:23:26.599 --> 00:23:30.279 My friends would tell you that's my default. Exactly. Yes, no, 299 00:23:30.559 --> 00:23:33.759 we're not doing that. So we started. No, we just work 300 00:23:33.839 --> 00:23:41.799 you up. Yeah, no, no, no, you said, we're 301 00:23:41.799 --> 00:23:45.200 a little sweats no, okay, perfect one breakers, like they know. 302 00:23:45.880 --> 00:23:48.559 You know what, we're going to run this five K. no, we're 303 00:23:48.680 --> 00:23:59.400 not. I'm just going to run. It's about knowing you personal boundaries, 304 00:23:59.480 --> 00:24:04.559 Justin and also knowing when. I think when, when, when being committed 305 00:24:04.599 --> 00:24:08.039 to something is no longer serving you either. So to your points. Alot 306 00:24:08.039 --> 00:24:12.759 onto the reason, season or a lifetime. He says a kind of hearts, 307 00:24:12.960 --> 00:24:18.359 but I think Kevin O'Leary on the shark tank says basically, like you 308 00:24:18.440 --> 00:24:22.880 know, entrepreneurship is like raising a bunch of raising a bunch of babies to 309 00:24:22.880 --> 00:24:26.160 see who's going to be successful. In the ones that aren't successful, you 310 00:24:26.200 --> 00:24:30.160 have to kill those babies. Almost. Yeah, so that's that's why I 311 00:24:30.160 --> 00:24:37.799 attributed him. I don't believe. But to that point, entrepreneurs, we 312 00:24:38.119 --> 00:24:44.920 can become so an artist as well, people who pour their heart and soul 313 00:24:45.039 --> 00:24:49.799 into what they believe is going to potentially be that legacy. When you realize 314 00:24:49.839 --> 00:24:52.680 that that legacy maybe is not turning out the way you thought it was, 315 00:24:53.759 --> 00:24:59.119 or things have changed, your life has changed, circumstances that it's okay to 316 00:24:59.640 --> 00:25:03.839 assess your commitments and what's on your plate and start making some moves, to 317 00:25:06.119 --> 00:25:08.079 take some things off your plate that are no longer serving to make way for, 318 00:25:10.400 --> 00:25:12.680 you know, things that that can bring you more on your path. 319 00:25:15.200 --> 00:25:21.400 So, attributing to Tristan's choice, you see no one to pull out. 320 00:25:26.480 --> 00:25:30.519 You're never going to live that. Denisous, just by the way. He 321 00:25:30.599 --> 00:25:48.039 froze out a terrible time here. Any any posts? Yeah, I'm highlight 322 00:25:48.160 --> 00:25:56.359 you here a lot. I have a lot of thoughts. Yes, those 323 00:25:56.480 --> 00:26:00.799 key words, very cute. You have to know all it brought me back 324 00:26:00.839 --> 00:26:06.480 to a personal place, not a pull out place, as a personal and 325 00:26:07.119 --> 00:26:10.759 I remember, for there was a group. I had a group of friends. 326 00:26:10.799 --> 00:26:12.799 I have a group of friends because that had I'm still on shaky grounds 327 00:26:12.799 --> 00:26:18.759 with certain things are transpired and these friends came together because, you know, 328 00:26:18.920 --> 00:26:23.240 every I feel like every group of friends hit this thing where we hear and 329 00:26:23.559 --> 00:26:30.319 or learn about passive income and we love the idea. Oh I want to 330 00:26:30.319 --> 00:26:33.359 do passive income. Oh that's gonna be great, that's not but nobody really 331 00:26:33.440 --> 00:26:38.680 thinks about what it is that you have to invest into passive income. So 332 00:26:38.920 --> 00:26:41.640 we sat there, we kind of formulated a group, we kind of thought 333 00:26:41.640 --> 00:26:48.079 about it and at the very beginning of it I was like, all right, 334 00:26:48.200 --> 00:26:51.799 so if we're going to sit here form this group, because you wanted 335 00:26:51.799 --> 00:26:55.839 to put on events in the community and just provide like a really fun, 336 00:26:56.000 --> 00:26:59.680 fun environment, and I was like, so what happens when a group breaks 337 00:26:59.720 --> 00:27:04.559 up? And everybody's I want I'm like, yeah, the school, but 338 00:27:04.640 --> 00:27:10.240 what happens when the group breaks up? Who? What do you mean? 339 00:27:10.319 --> 00:27:18.319 WHO PLANS FOR IT as entrepreneurs? And that's order. But that's what it 340 00:27:18.559 --> 00:27:22.759 is. That's what it is. We plan for every aspect, including the 341 00:27:22.920 --> 00:27:27.039 break up, including the breakum. So at that one in time when the 342 00:27:27.119 --> 00:27:32.200 break up or we decide to dissolve, everybody knows. I don't want to 343 00:27:32.200 --> 00:27:34.519 say you're worth but we already know what it is that we're leaving right. 344 00:27:34.599 --> 00:27:38.759 So you already have your end, end goal in mind. So now it's 345 00:27:38.799 --> 00:27:44.400 not going to be like I'm fighting Shalana for this and more, and now 346 00:27:44.400 --> 00:27:47.960 all want more of what Chris has, because we all know we came in 347 00:27:48.079 --> 00:27:52.519 as three, but we can only leave the twenty five percent. Now everybody 348 00:27:52.559 --> 00:27:55.599 else is going to sit like he can't do math. I'm being dead serious. 349 00:27:55.680 --> 00:28:00.440 Think about it. Three people could only get, let me not take 350 00:28:00.480 --> 00:28:03.960 it only. Should only get twenty five percent. And here's the reason why. 351 00:28:06.119 --> 00:28:10.759 Because the three of US came together to form an entity and that anthony 352 00:28:11.079 --> 00:28:14.960 is now a living, I want to say living document, of living, 353 00:28:15.039 --> 00:28:18.039 breathing thing. It's a new business. So the three of US became for 354 00:28:18.440 --> 00:28:25.920 and for that unifies us all is entrepreneurs ship. Now I would love to 355 00:28:25.960 --> 00:28:29.400 give you guys shares within this company, but you have to invest. So 356 00:28:29.559 --> 00:28:33.720 I did that. It's so now that there's four of us. That's why 357 00:28:33.759 --> 00:28:37.079 I can only lea for twenty five percent, because Tristan could only put in 358 00:28:37.160 --> 00:28:41.880 a quarter, Chris put in his quarter, Shalanta put her quarter, and 359 00:28:41.119 --> 00:28:47.079 then the business has to take something from whatever it is that we do. 360 00:28:47.200 --> 00:28:51.359 And it's only fear, where we're going to be fair, that the business 361 00:28:51.480 --> 00:28:55.920 gets what we get, which is twenty five percent. So most people look 362 00:28:55.960 --> 00:29:00.200 at time like this like, oh well, the simple breakdown is thirty three 363 00:29:00.240 --> 00:29:04.039 percent. Oh, everything we do, everything you do, everything you invest, 364 00:29:04.240 --> 00:29:10.519 we invest. Is that thirty three percent? But everything that we divide 365 00:29:10.920 --> 00:29:15.480 can only be at twenty five percent because the business has its own business has 366 00:29:15.559 --> 00:29:21.200 to acquire something, and that's just it. So when we talk about these 367 00:29:21.279 --> 00:29:26.559 commitment issues and and saying no, that's something I feel we don't say enough 368 00:29:26.000 --> 00:29:30.319 and maybe something that we feel like we're afraid of. But that's a very 369 00:29:30.400 --> 00:29:33.480 powerful word. That's first word kids learned to let you know that we can't 370 00:29:33.599 --> 00:29:37.519 take that. I know. I don't want no more juice. It'll never 371 00:29:37.640 --> 00:29:40.119 tell you that, though. No, I don't want to do this. 372 00:29:40.799 --> 00:29:45.119 No, I don't, and it's fine. It's fine. It's okay to 373 00:29:45.200 --> 00:29:49.759 say no, because no is the only word I know that technically doesn't change 374 00:29:49.799 --> 00:29:59.000 it. It's safe. When you say yes, your world changes. Yep, 375 00:29:59.279 --> 00:30:07.880 Hmmm. So when anybody tells you know as an entrepreneur, he froze 376 00:30:07.960 --> 00:30:11.720 again, you know. So when you say no as an entrepreneur, what 377 00:30:11.839 --> 00:30:15.160 happens is that nothing really changes. So if anybody ever tells. You know, 378 00:30:17.160 --> 00:30:21.000 they just haven't changed a circumstance. You didn't lose anything, you didn't 379 00:30:21.119 --> 00:30:26.599 gain anything, you don't have any additional responsibilities and or anything. So nothing 380 00:30:26.839 --> 00:30:32.160 change. It's okay to be an environment where nothing has changed. It's all 381 00:30:32.240 --> 00:30:37.480 a part of pacing, he said. I'm saying pacing because that's important. 382 00:30:37.519 --> 00:30:40.160 So now that they said No, this is our stumble point, they told 383 00:30:40.240 --> 00:30:45.200 us. Know, all right, we recollect ourselves and we figure out how 384 00:30:45.359 --> 00:30:48.160 to move forward. Right. So, within this group that I was in, 385 00:30:49.359 --> 00:30:52.960 I don't want to say I told him no, but I was like 386 00:30:52.200 --> 00:30:56.279 planning for the break up. Some didn't like it and the group look like 387 00:30:56.359 --> 00:31:00.519 it did exactly that. Broke up, but out of maybe the four or 388 00:31:00.599 --> 00:31:06.640 five of us, one of them went ahead and created the arm, created 389 00:31:06.720 --> 00:31:11.839 a new business, and I'm really happy for my really really proud of them, 390 00:31:11.279 --> 00:31:15.359 because from that situation he did what it is that he was passionate about. 391 00:31:17.079 --> 00:31:21.400 So, from creating that new situation, it's still like within our network, 392 00:31:21.480 --> 00:31:25.720 we still assist each other. However, he knew, he knows now 393 00:31:25.880 --> 00:31:30.039 when he leaves. When he left the group, he left with that and 394 00:31:30.240 --> 00:31:33.359 that was his he said, I'm saying, and that's just say. So 395 00:31:34.119 --> 00:31:38.279 don't be afraid of planning for the break up, don't be afraid of knowing 396 00:31:38.440 --> 00:31:41.400 when you want to quit. Don't be afraid of the fact that you we 397 00:31:41.559 --> 00:31:45.400 might only need people for what is it? The season? Reason, season, 398 00:31:45.920 --> 00:31:48.599 lifetime? You know what I like? Time, Yep, life, 399 00:31:48.680 --> 00:31:55.519 time, like. Yeah, I. Well, that's just yeah, I'd 400 00:31:55.559 --> 00:31:57.039 like to jump in here because, as you were talking, a couple things 401 00:31:57.119 --> 00:32:02.000 came to mind. Yeah, my default is no, and that's for me 402 00:32:02.119 --> 00:32:07.279 to put personal barriers in place, and it makes me remember my daughter right, 403 00:32:07.839 --> 00:32:13.160 when my daughter was younger, she has a god daughter, love her, 404 00:32:13.920 --> 00:32:16.759 that would always have the newest iphone, would always have the newest game 405 00:32:16.880 --> 00:32:22.440 out, that would always have what my thought, my daughter felt that she 406 00:32:22.640 --> 00:32:27.000 needed in order to stay pace with her friends, right, and my answer 407 00:32:27.119 --> 00:32:30.599 to her would be no, and she would get upset and I said it 408 00:32:30.720 --> 00:32:34.759 doesn't mean that you're not going to get it. Whenever you get a no, 409 00:32:35.319 --> 00:32:42.359 it really means not now. So I said she can get those things 410 00:32:42.599 --> 00:32:45.440 and it's no reflection on her, it's no reflection on you. But what 411 00:32:45.640 --> 00:32:50.359 I need you, as your mother, to understand is that the things that 412 00:32:50.519 --> 00:32:54.440 you want, you either have to earn them or you need to be prepared 413 00:32:54.880 --> 00:33:00.160 at the right time to receive it. So No, it means just not 414 00:33:00.359 --> 00:33:06.240 now, you know, and I think now that she's grown up, she's 415 00:33:06.759 --> 00:33:09.359 no doesn't face her like. Somebody tells her no, like her world doesn't 416 00:33:09.400 --> 00:33:13.720 crumble. Right. And as adults, when we think about it, we 417 00:33:13.839 --> 00:33:17.839 might be going into a business to accomplish a particular change in the world that 418 00:33:17.960 --> 00:33:23.480 we want, and we keep experiencing these road blocks or these boundaries or these 419 00:33:23.599 --> 00:33:28.400 speed bumps that keep stopping us from going where we want to go. But 420 00:33:28.799 --> 00:33:31.920 is that possibly a no that means not yet, or is it a know 421 00:33:32.680 --> 00:33:38.920 that's telling you, okay, you need to redirect and go in another direction, 422 00:33:39.640 --> 00:33:47.240 you need to pause, you need to pause and do some self care 423 00:33:47.880 --> 00:33:52.640 and then zoom. You know, when you keep experiencing those roadblocks, it's 424 00:33:52.759 --> 00:33:57.079 really a moment of time to say, okay, this is not a no, 425 00:33:57.240 --> 00:34:00.839 it's and not now. What what is that not now? You know 426 00:34:00.960 --> 00:34:02.640 what I mean. In my business, I'm I supposed to be doing things 427 00:34:02.680 --> 00:34:07.519 a little bit differently. Should I be collaborating with somebody else to build capacity? 428 00:34:08.239 --> 00:34:10.800 What? What is the lesson I'm supposed to learn. What is that 429 00:34:10.960 --> 00:34:15.800 reason? Right, so that when the season does appear, I'm ready for 430 00:34:15.920 --> 00:34:21.639 it. Right, all right, I'm handing the baton to you. trysting, 431 00:34:21.639 --> 00:34:29.599 because I didn't see her. Yeah, because I really like the little 432 00:34:30.119 --> 00:34:34.719 the speed bumps, the roll blocks and what it is. I won't it's 433 00:34:34.760 --> 00:34:38.400 a nate knowledge. Just keep up. The speed bumps and roll blocks didn't 434 00:34:38.440 --> 00:34:44.960 necessarily stop us, we just slowed us down. They help without pacing. 435 00:34:45.400 --> 00:34:51.119 It's what I'm saying again, imagine if you were just hitting everything successfully now, 436 00:34:51.320 --> 00:34:53.599 where will you have been? We beat through it before we know it, 437 00:34:54.079 --> 00:34:58.400 we would. We would have taken it for granted. We won't anything 438 00:34:58.480 --> 00:35:00.440 to look back and say, you know, I kind of way like, 439 00:35:00.159 --> 00:35:05.840 come on, like these role blocks, these trials and tribulations are just, 440 00:35:06.119 --> 00:35:08.400 I want to say, God's way of asking you do you really want, 441 00:35:09.440 --> 00:35:13.280 how passionate, how much more do you want to put into it? Because 442 00:35:13.760 --> 00:35:17.480 it's that's our passive income. I think everything that we do we somewhat want 443 00:35:17.519 --> 00:35:22.320 to gain passive income. So you got to invest. So that's our investment. 444 00:35:22.400 --> 00:35:27.679 We ran into this roll block. You jump that herb. We did 445 00:35:27.840 --> 00:35:31.079 this, we got past that Oh wait, I saw ten speed bumps. 446 00:35:31.119 --> 00:35:35.559 It slowed us down a little bit and when I got to the end, 447 00:35:36.960 --> 00:35:39.079 what I gained from all that is something no one can take from me. 448 00:35:40.519 --> 00:35:50.360 Knowledge, experience, and now I could now navigate and help others navigate through 449 00:35:50.480 --> 00:35:53.760 what it is. So now when Salana's talking to me about, I want 450 00:35:53.760 --> 00:35:59.480 to say running, I won't be like what the Salana know about running, 451 00:36:00.039 --> 00:36:02.960 but she trained for a k. She has an understanding of what it is 452 00:36:04.039 --> 00:36:08.960 that K take. So now tying her with Chris, because Chris Paul, 453 00:36:09.039 --> 00:36:15.360 I'll sign to is the timing. Chris told us when he started to train 454 00:36:15.480 --> 00:36:17.559 for it he always start to late. So you be like, Oh man, 455 00:36:17.679 --> 00:36:22.960 Chris, I never did that. I guess what Chris knows. You 456 00:36:22.079 --> 00:36:29.320 know what, two months not be enough time to start training. You might 457 00:36:29.400 --> 00:36:37.280 need to you might need to take an audio book. That's so I just 458 00:36:37.400 --> 00:36:42.239 wanted us to realize and just look at what it is, because, because 459 00:36:42.280 --> 00:36:45.239 of our hurdles, because of our speed bumps, that's how it is, 460 00:36:45.320 --> 00:36:47.880 we're able to sit here and give you some of the nuggets that we've gained. 461 00:36:49.360 --> 00:36:52.920 You know, it's because we started that we started. We wanted to 462 00:36:52.960 --> 00:36:58.000 see success really quickly. We thought things from just going to drop out in 463 00:36:58.079 --> 00:37:00.199 a single line and then boom, you're not hitting that legs, and then 464 00:37:00.280 --> 00:37:05.639 boom, it's not this and then it's not that. However, it's how 465 00:37:05.719 --> 00:37:08.559 much do we really wanted? Don't we really wanted that through these hiccups, 466 00:37:08.559 --> 00:37:12.239 were going to persevere? We're going to say, you know what, all 467 00:37:12.320 --> 00:37:15.559 right, so I'm going to start training at five o'clock in the morning because 468 00:37:15.599 --> 00:37:19.840 I don't want to be sweating just yet. However, wait, is this 469 00:37:19.960 --> 00:37:23.159 a boom run? Is this a morning ring, like when doesn't start? 470 00:37:23.679 --> 00:37:25.880 You know, what is it that I want to get out of it? 471 00:37:25.960 --> 00:37:30.360 Do I just want to say that I just random K or I'm my run 472 00:37:30.480 --> 00:37:34.559 into K because I decided to start a health your life and this is only 473 00:37:34.639 --> 00:37:37.480 part of my journey, you know. So I want to pass the time 474 00:37:37.800 --> 00:37:42.880 to write. Can I? I'll take it, whether I don't know what 475 00:37:43.000 --> 00:37:49.400 your right, but but, but I wanted to see here, I want 476 00:37:49.400 --> 00:37:52.719 to drive here and I'm controlling the thing that allows me to jump in here. 477 00:37:52.760 --> 00:38:00.000 Said so, I just to kind of like tie in a couple of 478 00:38:00.039 --> 00:38:02.880 points. We talked about. So we talked about commitment, and and and 479 00:38:02.960 --> 00:38:07.159 basically, I think one of the things that kind of ties us all together. 480 00:38:07.320 --> 00:38:12.559 And the word pre NUP was mentioned as well. And going back to 481 00:38:12.639 --> 00:38:15.920 like Tristan's example of like the agreement of planning for the break up. A 482 00:38:16.039 --> 00:38:22.599 lot of people in entrepreneurs or just people in business, especially in working with, 483 00:38:22.800 --> 00:38:27.639 you know, family and friends or what have you, or close collaborators, 484 00:38:28.400 --> 00:38:32.599 they look at or hear the word contract and they're like and they're like, 485 00:38:32.639 --> 00:38:37.119 well, like, I thought we were friends here, but really a 486 00:38:37.239 --> 00:38:44.039 contract staves friendships. Because, to Chalanda's playing bar, when you were kind 487 00:38:44.079 --> 00:38:49.199 of making that contract with Dwighte about running the K, you had already agreed 488 00:38:49.320 --> 00:38:52.719 to like hey, I'll say yes to this, but my nose are not 489 00:38:52.840 --> 00:38:57.960 doing in the afternoon, not doing it when it's hot out, like race 490 00:38:58.079 --> 00:39:01.199 better be in the morning. So you've already identified in lying doubt. You 491 00:39:01.280 --> 00:39:06.360 know what you're going to commit to and what you're not going to commit to. 492 00:39:07.800 --> 00:39:12.039 So I think part of not tripping, and especially when you're working with 493 00:39:12.119 --> 00:39:17.039 other people, but even making those contracts for yourself. Of when am I 494 00:39:17.119 --> 00:39:22.199 preaching the contract and like when does a contracting to be assessed? And again, 495 00:39:22.239 --> 00:39:27.079 whether that's working with somebody else or outside. I think that helps you 496 00:39:27.199 --> 00:39:30.400 manage and navigate those races. And again, it doesn't have to be, 497 00:39:30.519 --> 00:39:35.000 like you know, full disclosure with the three of us. Do not have 498 00:39:35.159 --> 00:39:39.000 a written contract in place for this, but we have a verbal agreement and 499 00:39:39.079 --> 00:39:45.760 understanding that we're all committing to these things and we know when, you know, 500 00:39:45.960 --> 00:39:49.360 those things are falling out of place where we're not fulfilling our end of 501 00:39:49.400 --> 00:39:52.920 the contract. But all of us are agreeing to this, so we know 502 00:39:54.159 --> 00:39:57.440 a hundred percent of the time where the business is and, like you know, 503 00:39:57.519 --> 00:40:00.239 Tristan, to your point, it's a it's another member of of the 504 00:40:00.400 --> 00:40:04.440 entity. So there's a three of us and if one of XTC is out, 505 00:40:04.559 --> 00:40:08.199 then the entrepreneurs trip suffers as well. So I just kind of want 506 00:40:08.239 --> 00:40:12.639 to tie that together. As far as running the races is understanding what the 507 00:40:12.719 --> 00:40:15.280 race actually looks like in what you are willing to do or not willing to 508 00:40:15.400 --> 00:40:21.800 do before you commit to something and making sure you keep your nose in check. 509 00:40:22.199 --> 00:40:28.280 Hm, that was a great reple crazy see what happens, only to 510 00:40:28.320 --> 00:40:32.960 be started into content prison and he took his part and then handed it to 511 00:40:34.159 --> 00:40:37.039 crip. See, we're relays. We're relay racers, not sprinters here. 512 00:40:37.079 --> 00:40:46.079 So there we go. I'm not running that. By not running that committing 513 00:40:46.119 --> 00:40:55.079 to a five. Exactly. Awesome. So this is a trie boat. 514 00:40:58.039 --> 00:41:07.280 Yeah, just remember, breathe and pace yourself and if you can't, and 515 00:41:07.400 --> 00:41:10.239 if you can, just get Chilanos credit card and you can run as far 516 00:41:10.320 --> 00:41:17.559 as you want. I wish my credit card went that far. I'm not. 517 00:41:17.760 --> 00:41:22.119 I'm not taking the phototic curs from first and I'm leaving. He's not 518 00:41:22.239 --> 00:41:36.320 a gro that's what happens when you don't have that contract. Chris, youer 519 00:41:36.360 --> 00:41:42.800 supposed to meet me there. Awesome. Try slane bring us home here. 520 00:41:44.639 --> 00:41:49.480 Yes, this was an awesome conversation. Remember, you may have started this 521 00:41:49.639 --> 00:41:52.480 trip and you may not know exactly where the finish line is, but when 522 00:41:52.519 --> 00:41:57.840 you experience road blocks or speed bumps, it's a time for you to breathe, 523 00:41:58.119 --> 00:42:04.079 Pace Yourself, reassass and get back in the trip. Until next week. 524 00:42:04.760 --> 00:42:14.000 Thank you for day. Thank you for taking this trip with us. 525 00:42:14.360 --> 00:42:17.800 We hope you had a great time.
