At CES this year, Peter Virk, Vice President, IVY Product & Ecosystem at BlackBerry on #1839, shared how over 195 million cars worldwide currently use BlackBerry software. In the light of current geopolitical events and the consequent necessity for extra cyber security vigilance, I wanted to bust a few more myths and talk about the role of BlackBerry in Cybersecurity. After 14 years at McAfee, where he was vice president of central and north/eastern Europe, Hans-Peter Bauer moved to BlackBerry to start his new role as senior vice president of EMEA. But I wanted to learn more about BlackBerry's Prevention First approach, which involves using AI and machine learning ML to prevent attacks from the outset. We discuss why a four-day workweek is possible for the always-on cybersecurity industry and what it looks like for a small business to be fully protected against cyber-attacks and explore if it's sustainable. We also talk about why a prevention first cybersecurity approach is much more than just a perimeter defense – at its best; it's an active effort to neutralize malware before the exploitation stage of the kill-chain Finally, we talk about how not to become a victim, the shortage of IT workers, why security specialists are critical, and what organizations can do to attack new cyber specialists.

Brewing isn't a typical career path for research scientists with doctorate degrees, but for Laura Burns, it was a practical way to apply academic learning in a creative environment. After finishing her doctorate, she worked in a number of brewhouses from Tennessee to Chicago, before landing at Omega Yeast where she's assumed the title of Director of Research and Development. There, she's helped develop new yeast products to solve problems for brewers, and has worked diligently to understand why and how yeast create certain flavors and textures in beer. In this episode, Burns follows up on her recent presentation at the Craft Brewers Conference with an in-depth discussion of haze. There are plenty of myths surrounding haze in beer, and Burns cuts through the anecdotes and assumptions with direct results from extensive bench testing to help brewers create more stable haze in their beer. Burns covers: Creating stable colloidal haze without yeast in suspension Understanding the haze-positive yeast phenotype Yeast evolution that has led certain strains to develop haze-positive qualities Strains beyond London Ale III that exhibit haze-positive characteristics The chemical makeup of protein-polyphenol reactions that constitute stable haze Dry hop timing strategies to maximize or minimize haze Hop variety impact on haze And more.

62: Watership Down (1978) Section 4: The Chief Rabbit Scripted by Newell Fisher, with script assistance by John Ruths This section covers from 9 minutes 30 to 11  minutes 50  and the equivalent Chapter from the book is Chapter 2. The Chief Rabbit As the music dies away Hazel and Fiver approach a rabbit we immediately recognise as Bigwig. A shortened version of their first conversation from the book follows, in which we learn that Bigwig seems not to know Hazel well enough to immediately recognise him. In the background Blackberry and friends appear as they try to listen in on the conversation. Another change from the book is the interruption of Captain Holly, whose manner is very harsh compared to the way he acts in the book. After being easily persuaded to let them see the Chief, and telling them to wait, Bigwig dives down a hole and we hear his voice muffled saying: "Excuse me sir. These two outskirters have asked permission to see you. Is it alright if I bring them down?" He reappears in the hole and tells them to come with him. Hazel and Fiver go down the hole after him. And now we hear the Chief Rabbit's voice for the first time, echoing in his burrow, as the camera zooms in on the hole. We are being taken underground as viewers for the first time in the film and this is done very effectively using a detailed background painting that is used for zooming and panning. At first we see Hazel and Fiver from the side, with Bigwig nervously listening as they talk to the out of view Chief. And then we see him clearly. An effective portrayal of the rabbit version of an elder statesman. As soon as  he hears what Fiver has to say, he calmly turns his back on them, though still supposedly involved in the conversation. This action is accompanied by what I'm going to call an Oboe-based theme that seems to reduce the gravitas of the Chief by emphasising his ponderous physicality. Basically it emphasises how he is old and a little past it. Their conversation is, again, faithful to the book but truncated. The shot of the Chief's foot stretching that I have used as the image for this episode also seems to be a subtle expression of his power. The Chief of the film, as in the book, has already dismissed these two upstarts, but his intentions in the film are even less friendly. We see Bigwig, realising how this conversation is going, shaking his head and turning away as he realises how much trouble he may be in. We cut away briefly to a curious Blackberry being warned off listening at the entrance to the burrow by an angry Holly. In the book, the Threarah gives a lengthy explanation as to why leaving the warren is impossible. Here it is truncated. Fiver's panicked reaction causes him to have a kind of fit in the book. Here he just runs away crying "We can't wait". Then we see the subtle annoyance of Hazel at being mis-named 'Walnut' by the Chief again. As Hazel follows Fiver out, we get one of the bonus scenes of the film only hinted at in the book, as the clearly embarrassed Bigwig tries to creep away...but it is too late. The Chief wants a word, knowing full well that Bigwig is trying to creep away, and in the film we get to hear what he has to say to him, after he has to call him back a second time: "What was that all about? Your duty, as an officer, is to protect this burrow. Those two lunatics had better be watched" This is a good example of the difference in Owlsa culture in the Sandleford Warren between the book and film. In the book Hazel and Fiver are of no consequence, as mere outskirters. And they are free to leave for all the Chief cares. It is only the Owsla members who get into trouble. But here the two brothers are a security concern. This is our first clue that the Sandleford of the film is a little more Efrafa like than in the book. Hazel and Fiver are now in the sights of the Sandleford Owsla. What will the --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/watershipdown/message

Join us as we explore, engage and experiment with the best and the brightest innovators, entrepreneurs, and pioneering businesses.Interview Transcript with Andrew Gazdecki, Founder of MicroAcquire Brian Ardinger: Welcome to another episode of Inside Outside Innovation. I'm your host, Brian Ardinger. And as always, we have another amazing guest. Today, we have Andrew Gazdecki who is the founder of MicroAcquire. And Author of the new book Getting Acquired: How I Built and Sold My SaaS Startup. Welcome Andrew. Andrew Gazdecki: Thanks so much for having me, Brian. I'm excited. Brian Ardinger: I've got my MicroAcquire socks on. So, thank you for that. I'm super excited to have you on to talk about the craziness that is the startup world. And you've had a front row seat for a number of years as a multi-founder. And now with MicroAcquire, let's talk about what MicroAcquire is and how you got into the business of helping startups sell to other folks.Andrew Gazdecki: MicroAcquire, for those who aren't familiar with it, is the largest startup acquisition marketplace in the world today. We have about 150,000 buyers registered. We've helped over six hundred startups to get acquired that combined acquisition total is 400 million at this point. Almost half a billion. We don't charge any fees. So, you can sell your business on MicroAcquire completely free.So, I started that business, candidly, as a side project. I just felt that needed to exist. I'd previously gone through two acquisitions, and it was just a mess. Everything from finding the buyers to, there's so much education today on how to grow your business. How to learn sales. How to recruit. And how to fundraise. But then there's nothing on the exit. Which is arguably the most important part of the founder's journey.And when I sold my first business, which we can talk about, if you'd like, it was a business called Business Apps. Spelled BiznessApps, and kind of the light bulb moment went on when I sold it. I just got a ton of emails and texts from friends that we're also running startups and they were like, how'd you get acquired?Like, how did you find the buyer? What was the process like? It was like hieroglyphics everyone. Including myself when I went through the process. So, what we're really trying to do at MicroAcquire is democratize startup acquisitions and just make the process easier and more transparent for founders. And also, buyers.Brian Ardinger: So, talk a little bit about the types of startups that are being bought and sold on the platform. And how has that maybe changed since when you first launched? Andrew Gazdecki: Well, when we first launched, lots of small startups, you know ranging from, we would sell business, and we still do today, but 5k startups, mostly side projects. And since then, we've really expanded, I guess, up market. So, our largest acquisition is just under $10 million. We have buyers on the platform now that can facilitate acquisitions in the hundreds of millions if the value is there. Yeah, just started with humble beginnings just because I felt this was something that was so needed for the startup ecosystem. Because the other routes to sell your business, unless you're most founders think like Google shows up with a check and hey, you did it. Like you won the lottery. There's this saying most startups are bought, not sold and that's just not true. You know, you really need to sell your business. And so, the other routes were expensive, borderline highway robbery, and that's, that was really kind of like the main purpose of me launching MicroAcquire to really give another option for founders of this other business. And if you're curious about the other options, you can hire an investment banker. They're going to charge a big fee. If your startup is too small for an investment bank, because most investment banks will only work with you if your business is of a certain size. And you know, maybe you can get like eight, nine figure exit. And I had previously worked with an investment bank. And their minimum fee was $800,000 for a successful transaction. The short story there, we got a few offers, but the fee was just, I still had gas in the tank, so I kept going. But it showed me, and I remember telling the bankers, I was like, you guys have the coolest job in the world. I do all this work. And then at the end, you come in and get, you know, a nice payday. So that always kind of stuck with me. And then I stumbled on to business brokers. Business brokers, if your business is doing let's say less than you know 5 million in revenue. You can work with a business broker. They will typically charge 10 to 15% commission to sell your business. So, 10% to 15%. So that's like a small angel round. So, I just saw it. Okay. Business brokers don't do too much. You know, what would happen if we removed the middleman? And we let buyers and sellers connect directly. And we help businesses ranging from SaaS companies. That's kind of our sole focus. But we also sell a lot of e-commerce businesses. Communities. Some crypto companies. Direct to consumer. Newsletters. We like to say, we want to be the marketplace for profitable startups. So that's mainly our focus is startups that have traction. So, we don't list startups that are pre revenue. Content websites. Affiliate websites. Again, mostly focusing on businesses that have, you know, a lot of growth upside. Having a blast running it at the same time, too. Brian Ardinger: I'm hearing more and more about people using the platform, startup founders, maybe looking to buy a side project or a side hustle versus building something from scratch. Are you seeing that trend happening? Andrew Gazdecki: Yeah. Like one story that comes to mind is, there's builders and there's scalers. Where a lot of people love to build a business. They love to think of a new idea and bring something to life. And I think fallen, in both those buckets. Builders and scalers. And so people build these wonderful businesses, but they maybe build it to a certain point where they'd like to move on to something else.Maybe they built it to a few million in revenue and now they're, you know, mostly managing. When they'd really like to be building. And so MicroAcquire is a great outlet for them to meet buyers within like hours. Like the fastest acquisition on my group, where I was within, quite literally hours. Those are obviously outliers. Brian Ardinger: What are you seeing when it comes to valuation trends and things along those lines? How's the market changed or what shifts are you seeing? Andrew Gazdecki: Yeah, good question. It really depends on the business. So, a good business will always trade at really good multiples. SaaS trades at high multiples and e-commerce. Newsletters communities also trade lower than, you know, a typical SaaS business.So, there's so much variability. And when I get asked questions like I have a SaaS company, it's doing a million revenue. What's it worth. That's kind of akin to asking what a car is worth. You know, like, is there a 500,000 miles on it? Does it need a new transmission? Do you have a good team in place? What is your churn? What is the quality of your customers? And then other little things like when you go to sell your business, do you have an understanding of kind of what your business is worth? And on MicroAcquire, we have two different things that we do to help with valuations. One is we have a directory within MicroAcquire where you can hire someone to get a real valuation done.I highly recommend that. And then we also have a tool called MicroMRR. And you should go to micromrr.com and you connect your Stripe billing. And we'll actually give you a data-driven valuation based on what we're seeing from acquisitions happening in the market. So, acquisitions are a moving target. I'd say maybe there could be a slowdown coming.I know the public markets for trading believe like 22X, and then they dropped down to 12X and this is April. Those might climb back. But the last year was absolutely borderline bonkers in terms of. It was record numbers in terms of private equity activity. Just MNA activity in general. So, it's a good time to sell your business if you're looking to. Brian Ardinger: I'd love to hear a little bit more about how you came to create MicroAcquire. I mean, I know early on you even did some interesting marketing. Went viral. You had the Russ Hanneman character from Silicon Valley TV show, do a little viral stuff on Twitter. Talking about MicroAquire and that. Can you talk a little bit about your idea of how you got it started and the execution to get MicroAcquire off the ground?Andrew Gazdecki: Honest answer is, so I like to work within a frame. I'm not a big fan of like mental frameworks. That, you know, maybe other people put forth. But so, I'm always thinking of what worked five years ago or what worked 10 years ago does not work today. And so that's why you'll see, I'm always trying to market in a way that doesn't feel like marketing. But it also adds value and maybe even makes you laugh and stuff like that.A lot of startups today think that their main competitor is XYZ company. But it's really the 500,000 startups out there. So, you're competing for consumer attention. I'm a big believer in that. And so, we focus a lot on brand-building. Just sharing MicroAcquire story. Kind of everything. So, when I first launched it, I was working probably like 4:00 AM to like midnight. And the only way, so going back to kind of like how I think about and what I recommend founders think about when they first launch a startup is this won't come as a surprise. But find something you're passionate about. So, and then also find something that you have a unique insight into. So, I made a bet that entrepreneurship through acquisition was going to be a trend. And that was just through me going through two different acquisitions. And I was actually looking to buy a SaaS company. And I couldn't find anything that was specific to SaaS. I didn't like working with brokers. I wanted to speak directly to the founder because it's a very relationship type transaction. And it's not just here's the keys. You know, I want to know about the founder. I want to know why are they looking to sell? And so, I kind of just created what I feel acquisition should be. And I kind of built MicroAcquire in a way that thinking back on Bizness Apps is a 10 million a year revenue company. What would it take for me to list on a marketplace? So, we implemented things like privacy ability to connect. Financial metrics. You give buyer a good, healthy snapshot into the view of your business. To get it off the ground, I mean, a lot of podcasts. A lot of cold emails. Hanging out on live chat, 24 7. And I don't recommend this to founders, but again, going back to my previous point is before I launched MicroAcquire, I wrote down, what customer do I want to serve?And I've been an entrepreneur my whole life. I love startups. And kind of a startup nerd. I love looking at new businesses. And I built this company. And so when I work on it kind of feels like a video game. It's not work. And if you can put yourself in that situation with some unique insights into a market. It's a customer that you love. And then unique insights kind of fall in line with what I describe as founder market fit. So why you. So, I think of why now. Why you. As probably the two most important things. I had a deep conviction that acquisitions are going to be increasing. And that proved to be right. So that was a non-obvious bet to a lot of people, but obvious to me. That became obvious over time. But when you're able to build a startup in a way that you enjoy playing, running, whatever you want to describe it. More than your favorite video game. You kind of want, cause it's really hard to compete against a founder that where it feels like work.My best analogy there is if you, I see a lot of founders creating startups around what I'd call like opportunistic opportunities. Where, you know, it's a good idea, but maybe you build a CRM for dentists. But you hate dentists. And a big part of building a startup is talking to customers all the time. I'm a big believer that your customers have path to product market fit. They have a better roadmap than you do. And so, you need to be able to talk to these customers and enjoy these conversations and really listen to them. Otherwise, there's someone out there who's going to love those conversations and it's just going to be really hard to compete. But it all kind of revolves around happiness. Where the founders that I think go the distance really enjoy what they do day in day out.And that's not to say it's super easy. Like just cause it's fun, it's easy. Like a video game. Just because it's fun doesn't mean it's easy. I think that's kind of the key that a lot of the founders should be thinking about is, is this a business I could run for a decade? If so, why? And kind of dip your toes in the water.Like when I launched my group, I didn't have grandiose visions for it. I just wanted to help other founders get acquired without these huge commissions. And then as the business grew, it became pretty obvious that the market opportunity was fairly large. Yeah, basically kind of grew forth. I knew this was something that the startup community needed, and I just worked.I was doing customer support. Vetting the listings. Writing the newsletters. Managing the product. Going on podcasts like this. Social media content. In a weird way, and now I have a team that helps me with all that stuff, but in a weird way, I kind of look back and I miss those days. Brian Ardinger: Well, it's never really been a better time to be an entrepreneur because you have a lot of these new No-code tools. And ways to spin up experiments. And like you said, dip your toe in the water. And you have access to a lot more information. You know, I think 10 to 15 years ago, the whole VC world was not very transparent. But now, you know, you can read blogs and books and figure out that particular path if you're an entrepreneur. It sounds like you're trying to do the same thing for on the acquisition side. Breathe some life into what that path looks like and that. So, let's talk a little bit about the book you just wrote, Getting Acquired: How I Built and Sold my SaaS Startup. What can people expect to find in it? And why did you write the book? Andrew Gazdecki: I started BiznessApps again, spoke B I Z N E S S apps. My mom, this is kind of a funny footnote, but everyone called it BizApps. So, I ended up chasing down owner of the domain, BizApps. When your mom calls your business BizApp, and you don't have the domain, you got to go get it.But I started that business when I was 21 in college. And also going back to unique insights. I had a previous business that helped mobile developers connect to businesses. So, I saw businesses posting the same job requirement over and over and over. And I thought, whoa, they're paying like 50K to 100K for like a project like this?What if I just built a template and the functionality isn't really changed too much. But we just changed the content. Imagery. Which speeds up mobile app creation. Makes it more affordable. There's do yourself website builders at the time. And I thought, what about a do yourself mobile app builder for small businesses?So, the book is just kind of my story. I just journaled through the whole experience because it was very strange and surreal. I was 21 when I launched it. Just to give you kind of an idea of like the growth of it. And it was a right place, right time business. I got completely lucky. The iPhone had just come out. Android wasn't even there. Blackberry was still in the mix. We almost made a Blackberry app. I'm glad we didn't. But it's just my candid experience building that company, from idea all the way to the invested. So, it's not a book of here's how to build a startup. It's more of a book of here's how I built a startup with mistakes. Everything from when I thought of the idea to when I sold the business and everything in between. Brian Ardinger: Can you highlight some of the best or worst advice that you got on that journey.Andrew Gazdecki: I was so young. So, I was 23, 24, and I personally didn't grow up with too much means if you will. And so, I remember there's a specific situation. We needed a marketing hire. And I was handling most of the marketing. And the salary ranges, now I'm two years out of college and they were in like the 150K, 200K range.And I'm like, what am I going to pay someone that. Like you really need, one of my favorite quotes is, you know, talent wins games, but teamwork when championships. It's a Michael Jordan quote. So, I think, you know, hiring smarter people than me, was probably my biggest mistake. Also, a funny story. This is a true story. We had a period where we were again, because we didn't hire a really good marketer that could track in our paid ad spend and stuff like that. We were spending over a hundred thousand a month on Google ads. The business grew from zero to let's call it 7 million in the first five years. So it was just, everything was just kind of like, don't touch anything. We don't know what's working. But it's working. And it was so profitable. And our customer payback period was like 33 days. And for the first two years, our margins were about 90%. So, it was just extremely profitable. But when we finally hired someone to do analysis on how profitable is this pay-per-click ad campaign, we concluded basically we were burning about 90,000 out of that a hundred thousand. So, we call that era blowing up Ferrari's every month. So, every month we were blowing $90,000 because we weren't properly attributing our marketing spend to customer acquisition. And blowing up a Ferrari every month probably would have been cooler. Maybe not that would have hurt my heart because I'm a big car fan. But and I share all of that. I share the ups and the downs. And I think it's just a candid story of just what it's like to build a startup. Mistakes and wins included. Brian Ardinger: So, looking at the world today, what are some of the resources that you would recommend that startup founders be checking out or paying attention to?Andrew Gazdecki: I get a lot of really good insight just talking to other startup founders. I'm not a big podcast listener. I read a lot. Like this was kind of some books I'm reading and there's my book on top, like Play Bigger. It's a book about brand-building. From Impossible to Inevitable, that's a great book on how to build a SaaS company end to end. It goes over marketing, building a sales team, just written by Jason Lampkin and Aaron Ross from Predictable Revenue.And then a Tuned In, which is basically how to listen to customers. You know, you can talk to customers. But how do you really listen and get the insights you need? So, I always say that customers have a way better roadmap to product market fit than you. You just need to talk to them and listen. So, I could give you a number of different books, but I'm an avid reader. That's kind of where I get a lot, but I will say you definitely learn the most when you launch a startup. When you kind of just, you can read all the books in the world, but when you finally launch a startup, that's when the real learning begins.And also like you kind of get in a situation of, I launched a startup. Okay, now I really need to figure out marketing. And so now you're very motivated to figure out marketing and apply some of the concepts that's right, that you might read in some of these books. Brian Ardinger: That's great advice. And I encourage anybody who's even thinking about it. The tools and the resources are out there to try things nowadays that maybe you couldn't have tried in the past. Even if you fail, you've probably leveled up your skills and game considerably than if you just read about it. So, encourage is that as well. My last question is what are you most excited about working on the next three to six months? Andrew Gazdecki: I'd say just helping startups and founders get acquired. We have a goal to help a thousand startups, get acquired this year. So far, we're on track for that. We average about 100 a month. So, we'll probably beat that goal. And what's interesting about startups and you start something, and it goes really slow, but stick with it. And then kind of takes off because we've done more acquisitions this year alone than we did in the first two years of being in business.So, what gets me excited is just helping founders. And we're building tooling to help acquisitions. To really streamline them and really educate founders on what is due diligence. What are the legal steps? How do I transfer assets? How do I do technical due diligence on code if I'm looking to acquire a business? How does escrow work? What are common deal terms? So, if you go to MicroAcquire, click resources at the top. You can literally learn how to acquire a 100-million-dollar business. We have so much content. And that's just kind of like something I felt was so needed because it's such an opaque topic that not too many people write about. So, I definitely recommend checking that out.

61: Watership Down (1978) Section 3: The Notice Board Scripted by Newell Fisher, with assistance by John Ruths This section covers from 5 minutes 40 to 9 minutes 30. The equivalent Chapter from the book is Chapter 1. The Notice Board As the camera zooms out from the detailed rabbit we ended with last time, the shot dissolves to one in which a rabbit is represented in the way we will see throughout the film, in other words the fur is a single untextured colour. This is Hazel. He emerges cautiously. After a few seconds of checking for danger, he returns to the bank and, at last, we hear a rabbit speak, as he reassures Fiver that everything seems okay. Hazel suggests they try to find a Coltsfoot. This is a change from the Cowslip mentioned in the book. Fiver, rushing after Hazel, is startled by a bee, which is commented on by Blackberry and, from the voice, Silver, even though he seems to be further away and the rabbit with Blackberry looks more like Dandelion. Silver refers to Fiver as a runt, whereas in the book his comment is spoken by Blackberry, who is talking to Buckthorn, one of the three rabbits seemingly amalgamated into Silver here. In the book, Blackberry only refers to him as Fiver and explains his name. Fiver sniffs around looking for a coltsfoot and, as soon as he finds one, a large rabbit foot lands on it. There follows a more stilted version of the conversation with Toadflax from the book. Hazel makes it clear that he has had enough of the way things are going in this warren and has considered leaving. The two brothers arrive at a part of the pasture lower down the slope. And then Fiver enters a patch of long grass where he is startled by another bee. The sound of the bee is an excellent piece of dissonance in this until now briefly idyllic scene, as it scares him out of the other side of the long grass and straight onto a piece of ground that is muddy and covered in human boot-prints. An eerie harp and violin theme starts to play as Fiver's terrified eyes look slowly backwards and up. He turns his head and looks up at the looming noticeboard. And then he smells a discarded cigarette nearby. And suddenly, terrifyingly, he knows that something terrible is going to happen. As Fiver's fear builds, a subtle change comes over his fur, as the red of the sunset highlights some parts of it. The music is building ominously as this first genuinely frightening section of the film arrives and we enter Fiver's dream-state with him. And so we arrive at the famous shot of Fiver looking at the sun setting over the trees on the other side of a field, as what might have just been the light of sunset becomes something definitely a lot more sinister. The camera zooms in. The grass in the foreground actually moves out of shot faster than can be accounted for by the zoom, and then the starker outlines of trees replace the scene altogether and mutate. Fiver's vision of death seems to be a reference to the phrase "Like Trees in November" that Pipkin will later use to refer to the rabbits of the Warren of the Snares. This frightening winter tree now dissolves into a spiral that surrounds the setting sun as we return to reality. Hazel tries to reassure the trembling Fiver but his suggestion that they return to their burrow has the opposite effect. As soon as Fiver insists that something "very bad" is going to happen, Hazel seems far too easily convinced, bearing in mind that, moments before, he was telling Fiver he was being "silly" for suggesting they all have to leave the warren. And he immediately says they should go and see the Chief Rabbit. As a bed of quiet violin music plays they return to the scene of silflay where Fiver was first scared by a bee, where Fiver shouts that everyone needs to leave the warren. As Hazel and Fiver enter a wooded area, the whole group of silflaying rabbits gather and follow them.

Barrett Tillman's love affair with yeast started innocently enough—as his small group of homebrewing friends divided up brewday tasks, he arbitrarily chose yeast duty. Little did he know that choice would turn into a passion that would define his brewing career for the past decade. Homebrewing led him to pursue brewing professionally, and over the course of a few years and a few different positions, he eventually landed at Deep Ellum Brewing in Dallas, where he became head brewer. Sour beer has long been his passion, and even in this commercial environment, he was able to bring his fermentation experience to bear, launching the brewery's first kettle-soured beer. However, a series of events led Tillman to question the systemic culture of craft beer and the toll it can take on individuals. The social requirement to be chief party officer led him to do things that he ultimate didn't feel comfortable doing—from leading bar-wide beer chugs to drinking in an unhealthy way. Those behaviors ultimately led to a crux moment where Tillman was arrested for DWI while parked in his own driveway. In this episode, Tillman recounts those experiences—the pressure to conform to a brewing culture that privileged the party (and beer sales) over people; the downside of compounding factors that led to him questioning his future in brewing; and the sabbatical and realization that caused him to search for new ways of working in the brewing world, to satisfy his need for authenticity and connection. Today, Tillman runs his own brewing project, BlackMan Brewing (https://www.blackmanbrewing.com), via contract-brewing arrangements with brewer friends in Costa Rica. On top of that, he's working on projects stateside to extend the brand, and the philosophy of beermaking, in meaningful ways. Sour beer and complex fermentations remain his first loves and focus, but connecting people to beers with backstory is his newfound passion.

Wenn es um die Einführung von Digitalen Pflegeanwendungen geht, hat der Experte Markus C. Müller eine klare Meinung: „Einfach mal starten und auf dem Weg lernen – anstatt Innovation zu verhindern.“ Denn mehr als vier Millionen Menschen sind in Deutschland auf Pflege angewiesen - und es werden immer mehr. Gleichzeitig fehlen uns hunderttausende Pflegefachkräfte. Umso wichtiger ist der Bereich der häuslichen Pflege durch Freunde und Angehörige, sogenannte Sorgegemeinschaften. Sie brauchen allerdings auch besonders viel Unterstützung in Form von Informationen, Pflegehilfsmitteln und Organisationshilfen. Digitale Pflegeanwendungen, sogenannte DiPAs, können genau das leisten. Sie „enablen“ Sorgegemeinschaften – sind also ein wichtiger Baustein für die Zukunft der Pflege. Podcast-Host Andrea Buzzi spricht in der aktuellen Folge E-Health Pioneers mit Markus C. Müller, dem Gründer und Geschäftsführer von Nui care. Markus C. Müller hat in seinem früheren Leben erfolgreich ein Startup aufgebaut, dieses dann an BlackBerry verkauft und war mehrere Jahre Geschäftsführer bei BlackBerry Europa. Im Anschluss hat er sich als Hospizbegleiter ausbilden lassen. Bei dieser ehrenamtlichen Tätigkeit konnte er aus nächster Nähe erleben, was pflegende Angehörige alles auf sich nehmen müssen – und hat deswegen vor rund drei Jahren Nui entwickelt, eine „Pflegeleicht-App für die Helden unserer Kindheit“.

Summary Noah Hurowitz (Twitter; LinkedIn) joins Andrew (Twitter; LinkedIn) to discuss infamous drug kingpin El Chapo. A weak link in his cybersecurity set-up would help bring him down.  What You'll Learn Intelligence El Chapo's internal surveillance operation The cartel's use of cryptography to keep communications covert How cybersecurity enabled then brought down El Chapo The role of the infamous DFS – a corrupt and now disbanded intelligence agency Reflections Technology – early adopters vs. counter responders The changing nature of crime enabled by emerging technologies – spyware, drones, etc. And much, much more… Episode Notes Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, aka El Chapo (shorty) because of his 5-foot 6-inch frame, was called by one of the agents chasing him, “the godfather of the drug world.” So, how did a low-level drug dealer from a provincial state rise to try and subvert the Mexican government to his will? What was the intelligence game that played out with regards to El Chapo? How did the cartels use spytech, tradecraft and cybersecurity to stay one step ahead of the law? How was he caught? To answer these questions and more, Andrew sat down with Noah Horowitz who covered the trial of El Chapo in Brooklyn for Rolling Stone magazine. Noah is also the author of the recent book El Chapo, and his work has appeared in the Village Voice, the Baffler and New York Magazine.  And… In the El Chapo trial, question No.57 asked prospective jurors, “Are you familiar with Jesus Malverde?” If you are not familiar with this angel of the poor (el ángel de los pobres) as well as the Sinaloan narcos (el narcosantón), then you can find out why this question would be relevant here, here, here and here. Quote of the Week "So, in addition to encrypted communications…he was also installing spyware on Blackberry devices that El Chapo was giving out to his lieutenants and his girlfriends and his wives. And then EL Chapo was able to use this, the spyware program to see what was on their phones. He was able to see their text messages. He was able to see their locations. He was even able to remotely activate their mic and listen to them. And he loved that…it was like a toy to him almost. He became obsessed with it." – Noah Hurowitz Resources Headline Resource El Chapo, N.

Grant Welcome everybody. In this episode I speak with Jerremy Newsom who has a system for giving back Everybody welcome to another episode of Financial investing radio. All right today we have in the house. Mr. Jerremy Alexander Newsome coming to us all the way from Nashville, Tennessee. He is a long term successful investor and trader and he's been gracious enough to spend some time with me today, talking about some of the unique things around what he has done and how he's benefiting the market and investors and traders. So first of all, welcome Jerremy. And please take a moment to introduce yourself. Jerremy Thank you so much, man. It's always an honor to pour into like minded individuals I love that everyone here is interested in investing and growing their minds and therefore growing their bank account. My name is Jerremy Newsome. It's spelled with two R's. My dad's name was Jerry. So it stands for Jerry and me. That was Oh, that's awesome. Thanks, Mom. Yeah, man, I love the stock market. I love trading. I do love investing, right? Everything from long term buy and hold to day trading options and everything in between. I think that the liquid markets are extremely fascinating. And one of the things that I spend the majority of my time doing is helping other people learn how to do it themselves, right how to generate cash flow, using the markets, so that they can live the life that they want to live and help me people they want to help. Grant I love that. So one of the things that triggered me to want to be able to talk with you is when when I had the opportunity to interview I was looking at something about you in your background that sort of caught my eye in terms of what you started with. I'm not gonna give it away but would you back up and just talked about how this all got started? How did what got you thinking Let me do trading. Let me do investing. What was it that can get us that sort of the beginning? Jerremy Yeah, dude. The craziest thing it was a movie, a Tom Hanks film 1994 Academy Award winning film Forrest Gump. And I was watching that at six years old. And I was watching with my dad and my oldest brother, Jerry, Roger. And by apresenta way through the movie, Forrest Gump says that him and Lieutenant Dan invested into a fruit company and they no longer had to worry about money anymore. So I asked my dad, I was like, what is the fruit company was investing because when I mean we were poor, financially, we were very happy family had a great incredible childhood. But we were very poor. We we were at the time living in a single wide trailer tree house. Doesn't. It's not nearly as glamorous as it might sound. What I mean, okay, a tree house. A bunch of single wide trailers thrown into a tree house. Yeah, really? Grant Wow. That's a story right there. Jerremy That was a story. My dad was a creative builder. And I lived in there for from age three until 12. And so anyway, we're watching this film. I connect with that because I was like, Well, I would love to not worry about money anymore. I know a lot of my family members or somebody that we stressed about and worry about. I would like to not have that be an issue. When I asked my dad what's investing what's the fruit company? My dad goes on to tell me about Apple and how the stock market works I was like let's do this the Forrest Gump investing model Dad Come on, let's do it. And you know, he did the normal dad routine, right? Like yeah, this is a movie. Yep. It's but I asked my dad was like, Is Apple a real company? Can you actually invest in it? I begged him and begged and begged him and he said, Listen, if you bring me some money, I'll match it dollar for dollar and we'll buy some shares of Apple. So I went and picked blackberries, door to door and made 1500 bucks in the summer of 1994 some blackberries. And so true to his word. We bought $3,000 worth of Apple in 1994. Grant Man you bootstrapped it. I loved your initiative. Uh, you know, the fact that you really wanted it you went after sold blackberries, right? Like, we just want to pick them out of gardens kind of thing sold and door to door. Jerremy Yeah, yeah, just exactly. So they grow wild in South Georgia. And so I just walk around up and down the streets and find BlackBerry pouches and put them in plastic bags or buckets or whatever. I could find them and just wrap them up and then go to go to Door Door and sell them. And the thing is, though, I sold them $1 bag, organic handpicked blackberries. 35% cheaper than they sold stores and had a six year old no shoes, no shirt jean shorts at a high closing rate. Yeah, grandma's would give me 10-20 bucks. You know, I think I was cutest thing in the world. And that was it. Grant You know your audience? That's awesome. Yeah. But you know, your dad's brilliant to where he, he saw that. Hey, you know what, I'll support you in this. But I also want you to take some ownership as well. I think that's a great, great learning, right for your kids. Jerremy I love that you brought that up, man. You're 100% Right. And I'm assuming that you're a father. I can probably I can make... Grant Six kids six grandkids actually two more grandkids, almost eight grandkids. Yes. Big family. Jerremy Good for you, man. Good for you. That's incredible. And yeah, so you're absolutely right. It was an ownership thing where it's like, Listen, you want this bad enough? Prove me how bad you want it? And I did. And then he Yeah, he was true to his word. Grant Big time. I love that. And I know, I know, you've mentioned this before we got started. But I feel like this is this is the right time to bring this up. You just released something for kids phone is that? Jerremy Ah, yeah. No, thank you, man. We talked about that just a few minutes ago. You're absolutely right, I have a brand new book that just hit Amazon. That's the only place you can buy right now. I'm sure it'll be in bookstores eventually. But it's called a stock market journey, how to make sure your kids win every day in real life. And so if you just type in stock market journey into into Amazon, you'll see a pop up and a man. So that's it's a stock market education book for kids, which is very rare. And it's more or less like it doesn't exist. I was told by a person forever ago, like a business mentor. Don't do that. Don't waste your time. There's no demand, like kids aren't trading stock market. Like why teaching? Yeah, I was like, Well, I want to know. I mean, there's someone else wants to know. Grant Yeah, you're absolutely right. Absolutely. Yes. Yes. Some of my own kids have done that as well. So I love the fact that you created that book. Okay, so So backing up here. So you have this experience you you got the got the edge, got the bug, committed your time, got the apple investment going. Alright, you've got this sentence in your headshot piece, who shared to me I love it says retiring on $3,000 how to grow a modest investment into a comfortable retirement. But that tells me as you're thinking about us as people in general, right, you're not looking at Gee, it's gonna take lots of money to pull this off. If you do it right. You can bring you can lower that bar to get going with this. Can you talk about this? Jerremy Yeah, so essentially, I teach people how to leverage their funds to do day trading, and to be in a position where they're comfortable, where they're not risking insane, insane amounts of money. Because you can leverage money very easily, right? Money is the easiest asset to come by. Now, most people don't think that's accurate, especially if you're not extremely wealthy. But it is like like, if you buy a house, you didn't have to come up with all that money. You went ask the bank and the bank gave the money. And so now you're paying the bank back plus interest, but you are living in a house and 100 or 200 or $3,000 that you didn't have to come up with up front, you got the money, right? That's a resourcefulness going out and getting a bank. But there's other ways to get houses, owner financing, asking your parents, whatever, right there's a million ways to buy a house. So for me when it comes to actively trading the market, most people don't know that leveraged funds exist. And when they hear leveraged funds, like I'm about to lose all of my money. There are mathematical formulas. Second grade math, I'm not very smart at math grant, I'm like a, my IQ is a high 93. And I use second grade math over and over and over to ensure that I never lose more than 1% of my account on any trade. So for me, you can take $3,000 And you can actually get access to $100,000 in day trading, buying power right using the leverage funds and only lose 30 bucks per trade and 30 bucks per trade is 1% of $3,000 Even though you have leveraged $100,000 available so it's it's incredible what's available out there and I wrote a book also called money grows on trees, teaching people these concepts and letting people know that this does exist items and processes And then, you know, companies out there know how to use their money and how to leverage it and give it away for people who might want to grow into a substantial sum of money. Grant  So that's interesting that, you know, you identified putting that risk management in place upfront that that seems to be sort of the common theme across a lot of traders that are real successful and having the discipline to say, You know what, I'm not gonna go past that $30, and I'm gonna diversify this, is that the basic strategy across a lot of different trading positions in different markets? Or how do you approach it? Jerremy You're not incorrect. That's absolutely one way. Another way that I do it is you create the calculation ahead of time, so you have your 1% of your portfolio. And for me, I'm taking this from a active trading perspective. So I say active trading, I'm a full time legit, professional stock trader, and I'm in front of the computer, trading maybe 10 hours a week, maybe during the time I'm studying, I'm reading I'm listening. I'm doing podcasts I'm, I'm talking people much smarter and much wiser than me like you asking them, Hey, what are the macro economic challenges are going to face America because of Ukraine or because of COVID. I'm asking other people things that's using them some spending, most of my time doing is listening to veterans, people have been doing this for 20 3040 years, getting their their knowledge and their expertise. So the math, for example, is let's say you have a $3,000 investment. 1% of $3,000 is $30. Well, the math behind the risk is if you buy Apple at 180. And you're like, Okay, if Apple goes down to 179. Get me out. So you're risking $1? Well, if you know your risk is 3030 divided by that dollar equals you can buy 30 shares of Apple. So even though your investment in this scenario is well over $4,000, you're only going to lose 30. If it doesn't work. Now, let's say Apple goes from 180 to 190, you make $10 per share risking $1, right you your risk reward is 10 to one you just made $300, even though you only risked 30, that 300 bucks. So it could be cash flow grants could be huge for somebody, right? That could be a car payment, that could be an electricity bill, that could be all forms of items that they might need. That could be groceries, and that could happen in an hour. Right? Like that tray could happen in an hour and or 15 minutes sometimes. And it's amazing how quickly the markets can move. Grant Yeah, it is amazing. And with that sort of control risk, and that potential for upside being much more than what the risk is you're taking on. So you're leveraging options, It would be my guess to do something like this, is that right? Jerremy You absolutely can leverage options. And I do and I know how I'm very versed in options. But I do generally 99.9% of the time instruct most of my clients to start with stock because it's easier. And stock margin and startup stock leverage is super, super available to anyone who wants it, essentially. And yeah, it's amazing what's available out there. Grant That is amazing how long then you typically in positions as you help people do this. So so your your coach student would be one that would come in take your system, they're in front of the computer, they're leveraging their their $3,000. And they might be in a position for like you said 15 minutes or an hour. It's certainly shorter timeframes, right? Not they're not holding anything overnight, or do they? Jerremy Very good question. Right. So the leveraged accounts to leverage trading, this is a day trade system. If you're going to hold overnight, I almost never suggest using leverage, though. If you have $3,000 to your name, like you're going to put $3,000 in you're only going to invest, right what you can afford to lose if you're going to hold for long periods of time. And so yeah, absolutely, man, this is a day trade system. But I do I love long term investing love long term. It is an incredible way for wealth generation and for asset appreciation. But I think day trading is really cool for cash flow, right? Because investing is like Well, it's great, but now I'm 65 What now? Well, what if you're 33? Or what if you're 29? Or what if you're 48 and you got a few $100 or 10s of 1000s or a few 1000 And you're like well I would like to make $400 Next week though Can I do that? I was like yeah, that's that's day trading there are systems available that can do this. Grant That's That's fascinating. So so with the the talked about the difference between fear and greed, those doggone emotions, alright, what's the secret? sauce here. Jerremy, how do you control those? Jerremy Awesome question, man. So good. I mean, it's, it is controlled to an extent, but it's also a lot of self knowledge and introspection. Because, for me, I don't believe that most market participants are greedy. Now I know that's a very, very popular term, right? I mean, Warren Buffett says buy when others are fearful and sell and they're greedy. And so on and so forth. There's a lot of the markets are controlled by fear and greed. There's tons of fear and greed baked into the system. But here's the challenge with that is inherently, the majority of market participants don't want to be greedy, right? They're God fearing church, attending people that are 57 with, you know, a few kids maybe a grandchild or two on the way, and they want to give to charities, and they want to donate and they want to help build orphanages and, and hospitals. They want to donate money to the zoo and protect pandas. Like, if you give money away, Grant, by definition, you're not greedy. Mm hmm. Yeah, I mean, I'm sorry. But that's like just the exact opposite of greed. You can't give money away and be greedy. It's impossible. So therefore, what we do is if people tell themselves, I'm greedy, and greedy and greedy, they're not going to want to make any more money. Because nobody wants to be greedy. So we have to remove these really weird, crazy subconscious beliefs that we have internally about money and about growth. I call it financial optimism, or monetary zealousness rather than greed. Yeah. Or money. Grant What about on the other side? Jerremy, what are your thoughts there around fear the management of that? Jerremy So fear? I mean, that doesn't go away. And fear comes down to having more and more certainty. That is a piece of it. So you do not have education? Thankfully, there is a company out there that teaches you for free, which is my company, I don't charge anything for these systems, or this education for this knowledge is I just gave it away. Grant I mean, you don't charge? That's amazing. You don't? Jerremy Yeah, no, it's totally free. Because I want people to be able to experience it, and to understand it, and to learn it, so that they can really figure out they want to do it or not, or to what level because if I'm being honest, I've made a lot of money, millions of dollars in the markets. I'm good. You know, I don't need anyone's money. Specifically, I love money, I'm not pushing it away, I'll absolutely charge you for things. But education is not one of them. I feel like I feel like education should be free. And so I create a free platform, people can learn my system entirely for free. And the piece of the real massive distinction that you're giving about fear is it is a knowledge thing. A lot of people are afraid of I'm just gonna use guns as an example. Okay, well, I grew up around guns, I don't have many, but I'm very comfortable knowing that if I hold the gun, how it works. Yeah, and I know how to put a safety on, I know that it by itself isn't harmful. Just like a car by itself is a harmful you put a drunk driver behind that vehicle. Now it's a weapon. So weapons aren't. Money is a tool, right? Money is a it's like a brick can be thrown through a window or it can build a church. Same thing with guns into the car are all tools. And once you understand more, you have more certainty, you have more education, that fear will slowly start to dissipate. And it won't go away entirely forever. But you will have and you'll replace your replace that with different fears over time. Grant Oh, that's awesome. I love the altruistic aspect of this. It's sort of a gift back and feels like what you're doing right to the community. Right. Okay. Let me let me improve the education of people. I actually think that Well, let's talk to the other side of that. Then, with that giving back can you speak to what are the outcomes been to your audience and the people that have gone through the systems? Can you speak of successes and things where people have had their lives changed? Jerremy Yeah, man. I mean, the first one that came to mind is a really good friend of mine. His name is Matt DeLong. He's actually my business partner, mentor of mine, when my best friends he's a little bit older than me. 45 years old, has two kids. They're both in college and he was a business owner. A little bit of money, started day trading and losing his face. I mean, he was hemorrhaging money, because he had no idea what to do. Just just losing money all you click the button, boop. He's gone by because there was a siphon. And he didn't know what to do. And so he pumped the brakes. He said he sought out assistance, a coach and mentor and he met with me and pay me for my time said hey, man, I'll buy some food or whatever. Let's let me Cafe this out. So come full circle. That was four years ago, four and a half, five years ago, he now can trade profitably consistently and have an income. And now that his kids are out the house, he is fully financially sustainable, where he doesn't have to draw off of his retirement or he, you know, he does not working right, he sold his business. Him and his wife are able to foster children well, and to be a real force for good by going on mission trips, and by donating to charities and him and I ended up creating a foundation together called Real Life Foundation. And so one of our main goals is to end human trafficking. And so we donate hundreds of 1000s of dollars towards that foundation, and we just we work on Yeah, man. Yeah. So he has time to pour into the world using his gifts and his skills tests with your technology, because he doesn't have to be working 70 hours a week anymore behind the desk, which that was that was the case. That's what he's doing years ago. Grant Yeah. So it's interesting. You mentioned what's called Real Life Foundation. Yep. It sounds similar to as it Oh, you are like operation Underground Railroad? Jerremy Yeah. Yeah. So that's, that's our main as who we support as one of our main go to www.reallifefoundation.org . Like we do the in human trafficking by connecting directly with Tim Ballard. Grant Yeah, that's awesome. Wow, Jerremy, that's, that's really, really cool. Okay, so you're going after leveraging the benefits from this investing and trading strategies, you're tying it back into, I see two huge givebacks from you guys, man, obviously, the free education but going after that human trafficking problem. That's what's our massive problems to pursue? Oh my gosh, that's, that's incredible. Okay, so, so real quick question. You mostly do this in stocks? Is that right? Are you doing things like futures and stuff like that? Jerremy Very valid question. I have traded futures. I probably do four or five futures trades a month. Nothing too ridiculous. I do trade cryptocurrencies. I know how to trade foreign currencies. I know how to trade bonds and how to trade commodities. But I mostly trade stocks and options. I would say crypto but it's almost identical. They move very, very, very, very similar. And for me, I tell all the people like It's like Lebron James. Right? He plays basketball. Really? Well. Yeah. I don't know about his football game, or his golf or his baseball, but he's not making money doing those things. So I picked a career path that I understood, I focused on that career path exclusively. Grant With stocks and you doing more and more with crypto. And that's such a popular instrument nowadays. Do you do much there then? Jerremy I do. I do for numerous reasons. But one of them specifically being that people can do with any amount of money from anywhere in the world. And it really does open a lot of doors to let's say underserved countries that are they're still developing these developing nations, you can give anyone their $10 or let them earn 10 $20. And they can trade crypto and might make $1 a week. But in that world, or that country, that location, that could be a huge return for them. And those opportunities exists. And that's something that I think the crypto markets have allowed to, to really pour pour into other people. Grant So for people that are listening to this podcast that are brand new to trading, what tip would you give them to get started? Jerremy Most people are brand new, that's the good news. You don't meet many full time day traders who actually make money it's it is a little bit of a rare career path, but it is actually a legit career. And if you are new to it, number one trade companies that you know, know exactly how they make money. So don't trade like random biotech, pharmaceutical companies traded Apple trade, Google trade, Tesla trading normal companies that you know, how they how they interact and what they are. That's the first step for sure. Second step, while you're doing it, start with a small amount of money or pay per trade, right, you can trade virtually, and just practice without any real money at risk at all. Just so you learn a little bit more about it. That's always a very widely accepted form of education. And then yeah, number three, educate yourself right? It doesn't have to be my company. There's tons of websites and articles and YouTube channels that will educate individuals on how on how to trade but the very first star is have a have your mindset and your understanding that it is is achievable and is possible for anyone and yes, it might take 10 years. But what doesn't what doesn't take a long time to be really really, really amazing at it. If you see a professional basketball player, yeah, they make millions of dollars a year, but they pin planks and six. Yeah, now they're 20. Right?  Grant Yep. So with regards to a call to action, where would you send people? someone's like, hey, I want to learn more about this. I want to get connected with Jerremy in his system, where are you going to send them? Jerremy Absolutely the best call to action, go to https://www.reallifetrading.com/ and click on the beginner's tab. And again, you'll notice that it's free. There's no sales pitch in the presentation. It's just like, hey, man, here's the content, enjoy, go through it, and start there. And I have my email everywhere. I have contact pages everywhere. It's a very easy, user friendly website, and we have a connection teams or reach out to you just to see if you need any help. If you have any questions, we offer free coaching and it's an amazing opportunity for people to learn. Grant It is amazing. Thanks for your time today. Any final comments for we for wrap up? Jerremy Oh, final comments. This was my dad told me, I asked him what I should be when I grew up when I was about 14 years old. And he said son, study money, study money, study money. I didn't know it at the time was like I don't know what that means. But looking at it now that's that's good advice. Because I think the four most widely under underrated and least talked about but most important subjects on planet Earth are sex, money, religion, and politics. And the least divisive of those four is probably money. So study that one and the other three will start to slowly work themselves out. And you'll start to get into a position where you can hire help and coaches and mentors and, and assistance. You can be in positions where you can change your life dramatically and very quickly using money for the tool that it is, which is an expansion tool of your heart. Grant That's awesome, awesome advice. Jerremy, thank you so much for taking the time with us today. Really appreciate that.

Grant Welcome everybody. In this episode I speak with Jerremy Newsom who has a system for giving back Everybody welcome to another episode of Financial investing radio. All right today we have in the house. Mr. Jerremy Alexander Newsome coming to us all the way from Nashville, Tennessee. He is a long term successful investor and trader and he's been gracious enough to spend some time with me today, talking about some of the unique things around what he has done and how he's benefiting the market and investors and traders. So first of all, welcome Jerremy. And please take a moment to introduce yourself. Jerremy Thank you so much, man. It's always an honor to pour into like minded individuals I love that everyone here is interested in investing and growing their minds and therefore growing their bank account. My name is Jerremy Newsome. It's spelled with two R's. My dad's name was Jerry. So it stands for Jerry and me. That was Oh, that's awesome. Thanks, Mom. Yeah, man, I love the stock market. I love trading. I do love investing, right? Everything from long term buy and hold to day trading options and everything in between. I think that the liquid markets are extremely fascinating. And one of the things that I spend the majority of my time doing is helping other people learn how to do it themselves, right how to generate cash flow, using the markets, so that they can live the life that they want to live and help me people they want to help. Grant I love that. So one of the things that triggered me to want to be able to talk with you is when when I had the opportunity to interview I was looking at something about you in your background that sort of caught my eye in terms of what you started with. I'm not gonna give it away but would you back up and just talked about how this all got started? How did what got you thinking Let me do trading. Let me do investing. What was it that can get us that sort of the beginning? Jerremy Yeah, dude. The craziest thing it was a movie, a Tom Hanks film 1994 Academy Award winning film Forrest Gump. And I was watching that at six years old. And I was watching with my dad and my oldest brother, Jerry, Roger. And by apresenta way through the movie, Forrest Gump says that him and Lieutenant Dan invested into a fruit company and they no longer had to worry about money anymore. So I asked my dad, I was like, what is the fruit company was investing because when I mean we were poor, financially, we were very happy family had a great incredible childhood. But we were very poor. We we were at the time living in a single wide trailer tree house. Doesn't. It's not nearly as glamorous as it might sound. What I mean, okay, a tree house. A bunch of single wide trailers thrown into a tree house. Yeah, really? Grant Wow. That's a story right there. Jerremy That was a story. My dad was a creative builder. And I lived in there for from age three until 12. And so anyway, we're watching this film. I connect with that because I was like, Well, I would love to not worry about money anymore. I know a lot of my family members or somebody that we stressed about and worry about. I would like to not have that be an issue. When I asked my dad what's investing what's the fruit company? My dad goes on to tell me about Apple and how the stock market works I was like let's do this the Forrest Gump investing model Dad Come on, let's do it. And you know, he did the normal dad routine, right? Like yeah, this is a movie. Yep. It's but I asked my dad was like, Is Apple a real company? Can you actually invest in it? I begged him and begged and begged him and he said, Listen, if you bring me some money, I'll match it dollar for dollar and we'll buy some shares of Apple. So I went and picked blackberries, door to door and made 1500 bucks in the summer of 1994 some blackberries. And so true to his word. We bought $3,000 worth of Apple in 1994. Grant Man you bootstrapped it. I loved your initiative. Uh, you know, the fact that you really wanted it you went after sold blackberries, right? Like, we just want to pick them out of gardens kind of thing sold and door to door. Jerremy Yeah, yeah, just exactly. So they grow wild in South Georgia. And so I just walk around up and down the streets and find BlackBerry pouches and put them in plastic bags or buckets or whatever. I could find them and just wrap them up and then go to go to Door Door and sell them. And the thing is, though, I sold them $1 bag, organic handpicked blackberries. 35% cheaper than they sold stores and had a six year old no shoes, no shirt jean shorts at a high closing rate. Yeah, grandma's would give me 10-20 bucks. You know, I think I was cutest thing in the world. And that was it. Grant You know your audience? That's awesome. Yeah. But you know, your dad's brilliant to where he, he saw that. Hey, you know what, I'll support you in this. But I also want you to take some ownership as well. I think that's a great, great learning, right for your kids. Jerremy I love that you brought that up, man. You're 100% Right. And I'm assuming that you're a father. I can probably I can make... Grant Six kids six grandkids actually two more grandkids, almost eight grandkids. Yes. Big family. Jerremy Good for you, man. Good for you. That's incredible. And yeah, so you're absolutely right. It was an ownership thing where it's like, Listen, you want this bad enough? Prove me how bad you want it? And I did. And then he Yeah, he was true to his word. Grant Big time. I love that. And I know, I know, you've mentioned this before we got started. But I feel like this is this is the right time to bring this up. You just released something for kids phone is that? Jerremy Ah, yeah. No, thank you, man. We talked about that just a few minutes ago. You're absolutely right, I have a brand new book that just hit Amazon. That's the only place you can buy right now. I'm sure it'll be in bookstores eventually. But it's called a stock market journey, how to make sure your kids win every day in real life. And so if you just type in stock market journey into into Amazon, you'll see a pop up and a man. So that's it's a stock market education book for kids, which is very rare. And it's more or less like it doesn't exist. I was told by a person forever ago, like a business mentor. Don't do that. Don't waste your time. There's no demand, like kids aren't trading stock market. Like why teaching? Yeah, I was like, Well, I want to know. I mean, there's someone else wants to know. Grant Yeah, you're absolutely right. Absolutely. Yes. Yes. Some of my own kids have done that as well. So I love the fact that you created that book. Okay, so So backing up here. So you have this experience you you got the got the edge, got the bug, committed your time, got the apple investment going. Alright, you've got this sentence in your headshot piece, who shared to me I love it says retiring on $3,000 how to grow a modest investment into a comfortable retirement. But that tells me as you're thinking about us as people in general, right, you're not looking at Gee, it's gonna take lots of money to pull this off. If you do it right. You can bring you can lower that bar to get going with this. Can you talk about this? Jerremy Yeah, so essentially, I teach people how to leverage their funds to do day trading, and to be in a position where they're comfortable, where they're not risking insane, insane amounts of money. Because you can leverage money very easily, right? Money is the easiest asset to come by. Now, most people don't think that's accurate, especially if you're not extremely wealthy. But it is like like, if you buy a house, you didn't have to come up with all that money. You went ask the bank and the bank gave the money. And so now you're paying the bank back plus interest, but you are living in a house and 100 or 200 or $3,000 that you didn't have to come up with up front, you got the money, right? That's a resourcefulness going out and getting a bank. But there's other ways to get houses, owner financing, asking your parents, whatever, right there's a million ways to buy a house. So for me when it comes to actively trading the market, most people don't know that leveraged funds exist. And when they hear leveraged funds, like I'm about to lose all of my money. There are mathematical formulas. Second grade math, I'm not very smart at math grant, I'm like a, my IQ is a high 93. And I use second grade math over and over and over to ensure that I never lose more than 1% of my account on any trade. So for me, you can take $3,000 And you can actually get access to $100,000 in day trading, buying power right using the leverage funds and only lose 30 bucks per trade and 30 bucks per trade is 1% of $3,000 Even though you have leveraged $100,000 available so it's it's incredible what's available out there and I wrote a book also called money grows on trees, teaching people these concepts and letting people know that this does exist items and processes And then, you know, companies out there know how to use their money and how to leverage it and give it away for people who might want to grow into a substantial sum of money. Grant  So that's interesting that, you know, you identified putting that risk management in place upfront that that seems to be sort of the common theme across a lot of traders that are real successful and having the discipline to say, You know what, I'm not gonna go past that $30, and I'm gonna diversify this, is that the basic strategy across a lot of different trading positions in different markets? Or how do you approach it? Jerremy You're not incorrect. That's absolutely one way. Another way that I do it is you create the calculation ahead of time, so you have your 1% of your portfolio. And for me, I'm taking this from a active trading perspective. So I say active trading, I'm a full time legit, professional stock trader, and I'm in front of the computer, trading maybe 10 hours a week, maybe during the time I'm studying, I'm reading I'm listening. I'm doing podcasts I'm, I'm talking people much smarter and much wiser than me like you asking them, Hey, what are the macro economic challenges are going to face America because of Ukraine or because of COVID. I'm asking other people things that's using them some spending, most of my time doing is listening to veterans, people have been doing this for 20 3040 years, getting their their knowledge and their expertise. So the math, for example, is let's say you have a $3,000 investment. 1% of $3,000 is $30. Well, the math behind the risk is if you buy Apple at 180. And you're like, Okay, if Apple goes down to 179. Get me out. So you're risking $1? Well, if you know your risk is 3030 divided by that dollar equals you can buy 30 shares of Apple. So even though your investment in this scenario is well over $4,000, you're only going to lose 30. If it doesn't work. Now, let's say Apple goes from 180 to 190, you make $10 per share risking $1, right you your risk reward is 10 to one you just made $300, even though you only risked 30, that 300 bucks. So it could be cash flow grants could be huge for somebody, right? That could be a car payment, that could be an electricity bill, that could be all forms of items that they might need. That could be groceries, and that could happen in an hour. Right? Like that tray could happen in an hour and or 15 minutes sometimes. And it's amazing how quickly the markets can move. Grant Yeah, it is amazing. And with that sort of control risk, and that potential for upside being much more than what the risk is you're taking on. So you're leveraging options, It would be my guess to do something like this, is that right? Jerremy You absolutely can leverage options. And I do and I know how I'm very versed in options. But I do generally 99.9% of the time instruct most of my clients to start with stock because it's easier. And stock margin and startup stock leverage is super, super available to anyone who wants it, essentially. And yeah, it's amazing what's available out there. Grant That is amazing how long then you typically in positions as you help people do this. So so your your coach student would be one that would come in take your system, they're in front of the computer, they're leveraging their their $3,000. And they might be in a position for like you said 15 minutes or an hour. It's certainly shorter timeframes, right? Not they're not holding anything overnight, or do they? Jerremy Very good question. Right. So the leveraged accounts to leverage trading, this is a day trade system. If you're going to hold overnight, I almost never suggest using leverage, though. If you have $3,000 to your name, like you're going to put $3,000 in you're only going to invest, right what you can afford to lose if you're going to hold for long periods of time. And so yeah, absolutely, man, this is a day trade system. But I do I love long term investing love long term. It is an incredible way for wealth generation and for asset appreciation. But I think day trading is really cool for cash flow, right? Because investing is like Well, it's great, but now I'm 65 What now? Well, what if you're 33? Or what if you're 29? Or what if you're 48 and you got a few $100 or 10s of 1000s or a few 1000 And you're like well I would like to make $400 Next week though Can I do that? I was like yeah, that's that's day trading there are systems available that can do this. Grant That's That's fascinating. So so with the the talked about the difference between fear and greed, those doggone emotions, alright, what's the secret? sauce here. Jerremy, how do you control those? Jerremy Awesome question, man. So good. I mean, it's, it is controlled to an extent, but it's also a lot of self knowledge and introspection. Because, for me, I don't believe that most market participants are greedy. Now I know that's a very, very popular term, right? I mean, Warren Buffett says buy when others are fearful and sell and they're greedy. And so on and so forth. There's a lot of the markets are controlled by fear and greed. There's tons of fear and greed baked into the system. But here's the challenge with that is inherently, the majority of market participants don't want to be greedy, right? They're God fearing church, attending people that are 57 with, you know, a few kids maybe a grandchild or two on the way, and they want to give to charities, and they want to donate and they want to help build orphanages and, and hospitals. They want to donate money to the zoo and protect pandas. Like, if you give money away, Grant, by definition, you're not greedy. Mm hmm. Yeah, I mean, I'm sorry. But that's like just the exact opposite of greed. You can't give money away and be greedy. It's impossible. So therefore, what we do is if people tell themselves, I'm greedy, and greedy and greedy, they're not going to want to make any more money. Because nobody wants to be greedy. So we have to remove these really weird, crazy subconscious beliefs that we have internally about money and about growth. I call it financial optimism, or monetary zealousness rather than greed. Yeah. Or money. Grant What about on the other side? Jerremy, what are your thoughts there around fear the management of that? Jerremy So fear? I mean, that doesn't go away. And fear comes down to having more and more certainty. That is a piece of it. So you do not have education? Thankfully, there is a company out there that teaches you for free, which is my company, I don't charge anything for these systems, or this education for this knowledge is I just gave it away. Grant I mean, you don't charge? That's amazing. You don't? Jerremy Yeah, no, it's totally free. Because I want people to be able to experience it, and to understand it, and to learn it, so that they can really figure out they want to do it or not, or to what level because if I'm being honest, I've made a lot of money, millions of dollars in the markets. I'm good. You know, I don't need anyone's money. Specifically, I love money, I'm not pushing it away, I'll absolutely charge you for things. But education is not one of them. I feel like I feel like education should be free. And so I create a free platform, people can learn my system entirely for free. And the piece of the real massive distinction that you're giving about fear is it is a knowledge thing. A lot of people are afraid of I'm just gonna use guns as an example. Okay, well, I grew up around guns, I don't have many, but I'm very comfortable knowing that if I hold the gun, how it works. Yeah, and I know how to put a safety on, I know that it by itself isn't harmful. Just like a car by itself is a harmful you put a drunk driver behind that vehicle. Now it's a weapon. So weapons aren't. Money is a tool, right? Money is a it's like a brick can be thrown through a window or it can build a church. Same thing with guns into the car are all tools. And once you understand more, you have more certainty, you have more education, that fear will slowly start to dissipate. And it won't go away entirely forever. But you will have and you'll replace your replace that with different fears over time. Grant Oh, that's awesome. I love the altruistic aspect of this. It's sort of a gift back and feels like what you're doing right to the community. Right. Okay. Let me let me improve the education of people. I actually think that Well, let's talk to the other side of that. Then, with that giving back can you speak to what are the outcomes been to your audience and the people that have gone through the systems? Can you speak of successes and things where people have had their lives changed? Jerremy Yeah, man. I mean, the first one that came to mind is a really good friend of mine. His name is Matt DeLong. He's actually my business partner, mentor of mine, when my best friends he's a little bit older than me. 45 years old, has two kids. They're both in college and he was a business owner. A little bit of money, started day trading and losing his face. I mean, he was hemorrhaging money, because he had no idea what to do. Just just losing money all you click the button, boop. He's gone by because there was a siphon. And he didn't know what to do. And so he pumped the brakes. He said he sought out assistance, a coach and mentor and he met with me and pay me for my time said hey, man, I'll buy some food or whatever. Let's let me Cafe this out. So come full circle. That was four years ago, four and a half, five years ago, he now can trade profitably consistently and have an income. And now that his kids are out the house, he is fully financially sustainable, where he doesn't have to draw off of his retirement or he, you know, he does not working right, he sold his business. Him and his wife are able to foster children well, and to be a real force for good by going on mission trips, and by donating to charities and him and I ended up creating a foundation together called Real Life Foundation. And so one of our main goals is to end human trafficking. And so we donate hundreds of 1000s of dollars towards that foundation, and we just we work on Yeah, man. Yeah. So he has time to pour into the world using his gifts and his skills tests with your technology, because he doesn't have to be working 70 hours a week anymore behind the desk, which that was that was the case. That's what he's doing years ago. Grant Yeah. So it's interesting. You mentioned what's called Real Life Foundation. Yep. It sounds similar to as it Oh, you are like operation Underground Railroad? Jerremy Yeah. Yeah. So that's, that's our main as who we support as one of our main go to www.reallifefoundation.org . Like we do the in human trafficking by connecting directly with Tim Ballard. Grant Yeah, that's awesome. Wow, Jerremy, that's, that's really, really cool. Okay, so you're going after leveraging the benefits from this investing and trading strategies, you're tying it back into, I see two huge givebacks from you guys, man, obviously, the free education but going after that human trafficking problem. That's what's our massive problems to pursue? Oh my gosh, that's, that's incredible. Okay, so, so real quick question. You mostly do this in stocks? Is that right? Are you doing things like futures and stuff like that? Jerremy Very valid question. I have traded futures. I probably do four or five futures trades a month. Nothing too ridiculous. I do trade cryptocurrencies. I know how to trade foreign currencies. I know how to trade bonds and how to trade commodities. But I mostly trade stocks and options. I would say crypto but it's almost identical. They move very, very, very, very similar. And for me, I tell all the people like It's like Lebron James. Right? He plays basketball. Really? Well. Yeah. I don't know about his football game, or his golf or his baseball, but he's not making money doing those things. So I picked a career path that I understood, I focused on that career path exclusively. Grant With stocks and you doing more and more with crypto. And that's such a popular instrument nowadays. Do you do much there then? Jerremy I do. I do for numerous reasons. But one of them specifically being that people can do with any amount of money from anywhere in the world. And it really does open a lot of doors to let's say underserved countries that are they're still developing these developing nations, you can give anyone their $10 or let them earn 10 $20. And they can trade crypto and might make $1 a week. But in that world, or that country, that location, that could be a huge return for them. And those opportunities exists. And that's something that I think the crypto markets have allowed to, to really pour pour into other people. Grant So for people that are listening to this podcast that are brand new to trading, what tip would you give them to get started? Jerremy Most people are brand new, that's the good news. You don't meet many full time day traders who actually make money it's it is a little bit of a rare career path, but it is actually a legit career. And if you are new to it, number one trade companies that you know, know exactly how they make money. So don't trade like random biotech, pharmaceutical companies traded Apple trade, Google trade, Tesla trading normal companies that you know, how they how they interact and what they are. That's the first step for sure. Second step, while you're doing it, start with a small amount of money or pay per trade, right, you can trade virtually, and just practice without any real money at risk at all. Just so you learn a little bit more about it. That's always a very widely accepted form of education. And then yeah, number three, educate yourself right? It doesn't have to be my company. There's tons of websites and articles and YouTube channels that will educate individuals on how on how to trade but the very first star is have a have your mindset and your understanding that it is is achievable and is possible for anyone and yes, it might take 10 years. But what doesn't what doesn't take a long time to be really really, really amazing at it. If you see a professional basketball player, yeah, they make millions of dollars a year, but they pin planks and six. Yeah, now they're 20. Right?  Grant Yep. So with regards to a call to action, where would you send people? someone's like, hey, I want to learn more about this. I want to get connected with Jerremy in his system, where are you going to send them? Jerremy Absolutely the best call to action, go to https://www.reallifetrading.com/ and click on the beginner's tab. And again, you'll notice that it's free. There's no sales pitch in the presentation. It's just like, hey, man, here's the content, enjoy, go through it, and start there. And I have my email everywhere. I have contact pages everywhere. It's a very easy, user friendly website, and we have a connection teams or reach out to you just to see if you need any help. If you have any questions, we offer free coaching and it's an amazing opportunity for people to learn. Grant It is amazing. Thanks for your time today. Any final comments for we for wrap up? Jerremy Oh, final comments. This was my dad told me, I asked him what I should be when I grew up when I was about 14 years old. And he said son, study money, study money, study money. I didn't know it at the time was like I don't know what that means. But looking at it now that's that's good advice. Because I think the four most widely under underrated and least talked about but most important subjects on planet Earth are sex, money, religion, and politics. And the least divisive of those four is probably money. So study that one and the other three will start to slowly work themselves out. And you'll start to get into a position where you can hire help and coaches and mentors and, and assistance. You can be in positions where you can change your life dramatically and very quickly using money for the tool that it is, which is an expansion tool of your heart. Grant That's awesome, awesome advice. Jerremy, thank you so much for taking the time with us today. Really appreciate that.

232: Raf Souvereyns of Bokke Is Blending Lambic with Fruit and New Perspective

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine Podcast

Last year, Raf Souvereyns produced virtually no beer. A debilitating and still-mysterious illness kept him largely out of his Bokke blendery and often in the hospital. Now he must live with the condition, without knowing if or when it will strike again. Yet he is back in his blendery, working, upbeat, with a refreshed outlook and plenty of ideas for what he wants to do with his life and his beer. In this episode of the podcast, he discusses: The challenge of running a small-scale, palate-dependent blendery when also facing difficult personal health issues Rethinking the blendery's production processes by investing in equipment to reduce manual labor wherever that labor doesn't improve the beer Working less, but at higher quality Searching and developing local sources for heirloom fruit varieties that create better flavor in fruit beers Timing fruit picking to maximize ripeness, at the expense of timing and flexibility Utilizing underappreciated elements of fruit, like skin, pits, and leaves, that make valuable flavor contributions Refermentation strategies for limiting oxidation and maximizing flavor in fruit beers Thinking about lambic and gueuze as "low-intervention" more than "natural" beers Aging and blending strategies to improve texture and mouthfeel And more. "Making a product that's different—everyone can do that," says Souvereyns. "Everyone can piss in a bottle.

Collaboration Equity for Remote and Hybrid Teams with Nigel Vanderlinden

Introduction: Nigel Vanderlinden is the CEO and Board Member of Powernoodle, a structured collaboration platform for remote and hybrid teams. Nigel is a seasoned business leader with 20 plus years in the tech industry. Prior to joining Powernoodle, Nigel was Chief Revenue Officer for Plum and has held senior roles for StarTech.Com and Blackberry. Nigel Currently lives in Waterloo, Ontario Canada with his wife and two children.     Podcast Episode Summary This episode explores the meaning of Collaboration Equity, why it makes sense for the new world of work and how timely Powernoodle and the technology it provides is to support drive the motive for collaboration equity across different forms of teams and knowledge based entities. Powernoodle and the technology it provides enables distributed team work, allows collaboration to operate at scale and institutionalises and sustains equitable collaboration.    Points made over the episode Nigel believes he was destined to be an entrepreneur and in the business of start-ups focused on technology.  “He got the bug” He particularly enjoys the freedom, scope for direction setting and not knowing that this environment provides  He is particularly pleased that Powernoodle is of a time where his company can help solve a complex problem that is facing the world of work, a combination of remote and hybrid teams  The Paradigm of the past working world is broken Remote and Hybrid working requires new ways of working and new tools to support people collaborate equitably Collaboration is much more than an exercise of itself for its own ends but a means to get a better business outcomes  Collaboration is often seen in two narrow of a focus.  Some of the traps teams fall into with respect to collaboration comprise being too adhoc, and or failing to align on a purpose for the collaboration need. The worst decisions are those you did not know you made.  Teams need to declare the decision need, be intentional about their purpose and engage a design that allows for inclusive participation, evaluation and then execution Nigel likes the Bain & Co. framework called R.A.P.I.D to which Powernoodle adds impact and proximity  Collaboration Equity was a term coined by companies such as Google, Microsoft & Cisco. Powernoodle uses this term for their product vision and purpose. Essentially Powernoodle enables individuals, teams and others to contribute inclusive of all the ways that make them different including, gender, race, age, seniority, tech savvy or not, work preferences and work styles, language etc. Powernoodle sees it role to remove the barriers to collaboration and provide a landscape at work that is meaningful & equitable  This involves five distinct categories or steps.  Create a purpose for collaboration and design a process Engage diverse perspectives  Design for inclusion -considering Psychological Safety Work to mitigate bias  Create Information Equity.  3 things to consider when understanding technology and its use; People/Process and Workplace Tools  The Role of Powernoodle and the technology it employs is threefold Powernoodle is an enabler of Collaboration  It allows for a scaling process It sustains good practice Resistance often presents in ways that are familiar to many change endeavours. The need to preserve the Status Quo. Change Fatigue. Change requires energy and fatigue is very real, especially after the Pandemic. Power, power comes in many guises such as HPPO (Highest paid performers in an organisation) assertive personalities, loudest voices in the room. These kinds of players often exert a disproportionate influence on the outcome of a decision  DE&I & Collaboration Equity are two signs of the same coin. Collaboration Equity is often considered more focused and specific to an activity of collaboration and the organisation of people/process and technology to achieve a business outcome  Nigel has read the book Indivisible by Rebekah Steele and Alison Maitland and he was stuck by how similar the two themes are.  An Ideal Customer Profile for Powernoodle includes large organisations who house knowledge workers, who contain critical information often missing information that can be employed for better business outcomes. In practice this looks like organisation in Insurance, Financial Services, Energy Utilities, Government Agencies etc.. Nigel wishes that teams and organisations seize the opportunity, a critical moment in work history, to rethink how work is conducted together in the new paradigm that has emerged since the Pandemic. He hopes people will not be too quick to rush back to the office centric habits of the past.    Resources shared  www.powernoodle.com  INdivisble: Radically rethinking inclusion for sustainable business results by Rebekah Steele and Alison Maitland.
