I'm happy to have you on. 00:07 Thank you for having me. 00:08 And I'm excited to talk about you and your journey and all the different hats that you wear in your, in your professional and in your personal life. So let's break all of this down. So you are a financial advisor. You're a yoga instructor, you're an entrepreneur, and you're a girl, dad, and I have a soft spot for I'm one of three girls, you've got three girls, I totally I get it. So if we can, let's first talk about how does all that happen in one life? How do you put that all together? 00:43 Yeah, I think, for me, when I was graduating college, I made a promise to myself that I would never look back at my life and say, what if what if I did this? Or what if I try this? And what if I went here? I just say I just say yes. Right? And as as as a result of that I'm a huge failure, probably arguably, the biggest failure you've ever met in your life. And that's also why I succeed, right? So I would rather try something and fail miserably might fall flat on my face and say, Okay, that wasn't for me and check the box, then just wish or assume. Right? And because, you know, again, I think I didn't want to be a grizzled old man sitting on my porch one day thinking of all the things that I could have done with my life that I should have done with my life and then look back with regret, no, no, no regrets? 01:32 And how do you pick yourself up after each one of those failures? Because, I mean, maybe my skin's a little bit thinner. But I would just I don't know that I would have the fortitude to continue to pick myself up and move forward again. So how do you do that? 01:48 I think for me, you know, sports sports played a big role in helping me create grit. You know, I have a nonprofit that I founded called future stars. And then I teach kids and I'm actually doing a camp right now for kids. And, and I told the kids today, I said, you miss 100% of the shots, you don't take this 100% of the shots you don't take. So my contention is, is I just tell myself, I tell others to be bold, right? Because only something good comes from being bold. Either you're going to get something you've never had, or continue, which you didn't have what you didn't have anyway, right? You're going to get something you didn't have or continue not to have what you didn't have anyway. So what do you lose? To your point? It's really just ego. Right? That's, that's right. Right. And so I'd rather hear or know, or face rejection and say, Okay, well, I didn't have it anyway. So what have I lost? That, you know, nothing, right? Yeah, I look at it, you know, it's, it's only it's only greed, right? It's only only upside. 02:50 And so you've so you say you've had all these failures, okay, I believe that, but you're also incredibly successful in multiple areas of your life, one of those being a financial advisor. So talk about how you got into the financial advising game, and then we'll maybe get since we're in the beginning of a new year is 2020, to maybe get a couple piece of pieces of advice from you, on how to set yourself up for success from a financial standpoint. But first, let's talk about how you became a financial advisor. And we'll take it from there. 03:29 Yeah, I started my career fresh out of college, I'm in the business which is unique, right, so the average financial advisors probably a 55, six year old white male, right, so I'm anything but that I had one simple, you know, modest dream coming out of college that was to become a millionaire by the time I was 25. Right. So 22 I figured what three years is that's that sample time, right? It's reasonable, you know, by three years, that's, you know, that's, that's that should happen. Um, and, you know, I was at a job fair at my university and you know, I'm going from from booth to booth and all the companies are kind of telling me the same thing. I'm gonna make somewhere between 4050 grand a year, and I'm scratching my head and I'm like, okay, like, I'm not the smartest guy in the world. But that doesn't add up, right? Like I get to a million bucks that way and so you know, by by chance, uh, you know, I found my way into this world of financial services and what drew me to the industry was that it was an industry as a field where I was paid for my work I work ethic and aptitude not my age or tenure. Right and so at the end of the day, I was gonna eat what I kill right I was gonna I was gonna I was gonna make as much money I was going to have as big an impact in the community in the world as I worked tap right and so you know, it's funny against the against the better advice of my father who told me no, you know, get go work for someone else get a job right? Go get a paycheck on the first and the 15th and I just like i Dad, I think, I don't know I like You know, I can't even tell you how I'm gonna do it. But I just believe doing it this way me being in control of my fate is just a better way to go. And 20 years later, you know, here I am. 05:12 And I, I can totally relate with the just get a job and get the paycheck. And because I remember leaving college, I thought I would get a job and a hospital or a clinic and I would work there until I retired. Right, because sometimes those worlds aren't open for you right away, and you have to kind of really forge your path. Now you were very successful, as are are very successful as a financial advisor. And then you moved into becoming an entrepreneur, starting your own brokerage. So we'll get to that in a second. But before we do, let's give people a little bit of advice for their financial success in 2022. What's your best advice for us? 05:55 Yeah, I mean, one of the guiding principles of creating financial security is the idea of paying yourself first, right? And, you know, tell people you if you work for a company, right, and and and they didn't pay you, would you continue to go to work? Virtually everyone says, Well, no, rather not go to work, have a good day. But my contention is, you get your paycheck, and you pay rent, and you pay your car lease, and you pay your credit card, and you pay your cell phone bill, right, and you don't put any money away, right? No money in savings investments for you, you just work for free, because none of that money went to create wealth for you. Right. So the the one thing that I would tell people is to pay yourself first. And this really comes first and foremost with creating a budget. Right? You have to have a plan, right? I would say if you aim at nothing, you'll hit it with amazing accuracy. Right? So you have a certain amount of money coming in. Okay, so if I make five grand a month, okay, well, what are your bills? My bills are three grand a month. Okay. That that gap between your income and your expenses? That's called your discretionary income? That's do I make dinner at home tonight? Or do I go to that steak house? That's do I, you know, do I go on vacation? Right, you know, to to Hawaii? Or do I just go camping, you know, down down down the road, right. And so those are your choices, right? Those are your choices. But I always tell people pay yourself first. And the reason and I wanted to drive home the importance of this, you want to get to the point where you can live off of interest, you want to get to the point where you've saved, you've accumulated so much money, that the yield the earnings from your money covers all of your expenses. That to me is retirement. It's not about being 65 or 67, or 70. It's the point at which you remove the half twos from the equation, you do things because you want to do them not because you have to do them. And the more money you put away, right, the longer it's working, the greater rate of return you're earning than the faster you get to that point, right. And so I don't care where it is, it could be a savings account to start. It can be a brokerage account, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, insurances, whatever, right? But something you must pay yourself first. Right? And that's, that's the first guiding, no first guiding principle. 08:10 And I love that I started doing that a couple of years ago has changed my life. Yeah. And it's like, it's so I feel like I have like less worry and less burden on my shoulders. Does that make sense? 08:23 Well, it does make perfect sense. And the challenge is, is people go oh, well, you know, I, my lifestyle will be, you know, be interrupted. And no, it won't, right. And if you think about this, and I love breaking down, and this is maybe a challenge that the listeners can can join in on, take the amount of money you're looking to save on a monthly basis, and break it down to the day makes it even more palatable. So you think about it. If I go, Hey, I want to save, you know, I want to save $1,000 a month. That's my target. Right? So what's that roughly about $33? A day. Right? So you get a lunch every day, Karen, you had to take me to lunch, right? Would that change your life? Would your life suffer? We just ended a living change? Probably not right? You're ready to retire? If I said you have $2 million in your retirement account. Would that help you with that? Would that change your life? I probably wouldn't hurt. 09:19 Yeah, it would be good. I'd be I be okay with that. 09:22 Right. And that is what you're giving up. So it's like we have to give up smaller short term instant gratification things for the long term greater good. 09:31 Yeah. And I think that's that mental shift is so important because we live in a world now where instant gratification is everything right? And so how do you counsel your clients who are used to an instant gratification world to be like, Hey, listen, this is going to come to you but you have to wait. Well, 09:50 I think the principle of saving and investing or paying yourself first doesn't mean you can't have fun. It doesn't mean you can't enjoy the fruits of your labor and I think people tend to, you know, live in these extremes, right? Like either save everything you must, you know, not spend don't have any fun like your life is over right? Or, or like, we only live once I'm gonna spend it all right and, and the reality of is there's a balance, you know in the middle, right? And so what I'm saying pay yourself first in that example if I make five grand a month and I have $3,000 a month of expenses, and I decide I'm gonna put away $500 Well, there's still 1500 bucks to go to the movies to go to dinner to go buy that, you know that handbag to go buy those shoes. You want it right, like, but you made yourself first. 10:36 Yeah, yeah, I love it. Like I said, that mentality has just changed and shifted everything for me. So hopefully, the listeners will take that and hold on to it through 2020. Now, like I said, you wear a lot of different hats. So financial advisors, one new or very successful financial advisor working for someone else. Right? And then you kind of made a shift, you kind of reached the point where, oh, I feel like I've got all this stuff. But I'm not sure that I'm happy in the place where I'm at. Is that right? Yeah, I 11:12 think, you know, for me, I realized I draw the analogy, I felt like I was a shark in a fish tank. Right. Like I had, I had outgrown, you know, the system that I was in. And in order to continue to to flourish, I needed to swim in larger waters, right? I believe in life, you know, you're green and you're Brown, you're growing and you're dying, you're getting better, you're getting worse, there's no staying the same, right? And so for me, I'm always looking to grow, I'm always looking to get better. I'm always looking to be pushed, and challenging. So you know, what better thing than, you know, leaving a 13 year career, you know, and multi multimillion dollar practice than to go out break out on your own and try to build something bigger. So that's exactly what I did. 11:57 And again, not easy. Now, was this around the same time that you started getting into yoga and becoming a yoga practitioner? And how did that change? What you do as a financial advisor and even as a dad and as a person? Kind of connecting that mind and body? 12:18 Yeah, I think it was somewhat around the same time I've been been practicing yoga for about 14 1415 years and and I've been independent now my own brokerage about 910 years and I think what yoga taught me not only what it did for me physically, but it I was very idealistic visit undermanned, right, this will happen, this lab, this will happen, right? I was very rigid, right? This, this, this. And what yoga taught me is it taught me to detach myself from outcomes. It taught me to detach myself from outcomes and to just focus on process. Right. And so there's a little Mater that I that I shared in the listeners can can take part in this as well. And you got a challenge in your life. Right? You got an issue in your life, you ask yourself questions, three questions. Do you have a problem? No. Okay. Don't worry about it. Right? No problem doesn't worry about. Do you have a problem? Yes. Can you do something about it? Yes. Okay. Don't worry about it. Do you ever problem? Yes. Can you do something about it? No. Oh, great. Don't worry about it. Which basically means all paths lead to not worrying about it. Right? So I believe that everything happens for a reason. And it's exact, perfect timing, even the crappy stuff. Right? Even the stuff you're like, This isn't fun. This hurts. Right? And, and, and, and one of the things that yoga has taught me is this just changes my mantras. I mean, even teaching it right, I have all these intentions and things that I that I that I share with with my students and that I have to also live by I can't say it not believe it or not live with it, right. And even this past week, my watch for classes that ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship. Right? And so through adversity through challenges, that is where we that is where we grow, that's where we get product progress, that is where grit is developed. And so for me, Yoga has softened me in so many ways. And let me accept things right, except that sometimes I will get exactly what I want. And sometimes the door will be slammed in my face and it's okay because if a door gets slammed in my face it was supposed to get now now the challenge is in the big so do you need me Sophie, every time you get rejected, you just accept it like know what I mean by trusting the processes. If I have done what is required of me, if I have done everything that I can do, then I can detach myself from the outcome. I don't mean that I'm sitting at home flipping TV. going like, I'm going to make a million dollars this year. Are you working today? Like no, but it's coming to me I'm manifesting. There's two keys to success in life. Number one, you have to believe that's the first part, those that think they can do something and those that didn't, they could not do something about usually right, then the second piece, then you have to do the work. Right. So what I always had was a tremendous work ethic that I always had. But what was flawed, flawed, or what was underdeveloped, if you will, was that mindset that, that that that positivity, that manifestation? That that, okay, this, this is what will happen, okay? This is what I want to happen, okay, and then go out and do the work. 15:38 Yeah. And boy, that second parts, the tricky bit, right, having to do the work. That's the hard part. And I know, and then, what I see a lot, and you probably see this on social media is people will say, Oh, I put it on my vision board, and it just happened. Or I manifested it, and it just happened. And then you're sitting there like, what, like, if that work is 16:02 because people people typically aren't posting their losses, right, people are posting their wins, you know, and the reality of it is, is that, you know, you take any anyone in any any arena sports, entertainment business, right there, they're all failures, all of them. They just were too stubborn to stay down. Right. And that's, that's the difference. I've come to believe that the most successful people in life are simply those who can endure the most pain, who can endure the most rejection who can in you know, indoor, and I think that's how I became successful in my business. I think, I think that I coined the phrase at the time when I was new advisor, I put in the phrase, tactical persistence, right? I'm going to be persistent tactfully. I think, in the first couple years of my career, people ultimately just did business with me, because I like, if I don't buy something from this guy, I think he's ever going away. Like, I don't think he is ever. Right. And so, you know, I was just there, they're there. And they're like, fine, right? I mean, you've developed a relationship and people know, right, then he's not going anywhere. He's gonna be here. Right. And, and, and, and I think I think that's, that's, that's important. I mean, anyone, uh, any one of the listeners, you know, of this program can tell you what is the easiest way to put off a salesperson or a telemarketer the easiest way to um, one simple phrase, call me later. And 99.9% of the time, they will not and you're off the hook. You don't even have to reject it. You did. So call me later because they didn't follow through. Right? Right. They didn't follow up. So you didn't have to actually, you know, say no, even right. And so, that's the thing for me, like, No, I'm gonna follow up and I'm gonna follow through and I'm gonna do everything that is required of me. Right. And if you ultimately type he's not right or my services are right then. Okay. Right. But I will not fail because I didn't do what was required. That will happen. 17:52 Yeah, yeah. That makes perfect sense. And, you know, speaking of tactful persistence, the other hat that you were is a dad to three girls, so I can only imagine tactful persistence comes in handy. So how has all of this your experience in business, your experience in yoga, your experience in life? How does that come together when it comes to raising three, three gals? 18:17 Yeah, um, you know, I, when I was a younger man, I used to pray to God that he'd sent girls to hang all over me. And he took me literally and it's like, here you go, here's three of them. Right? So be careful what you ask for my kid. I've got these three girls. And this is a prime example of you don't always get what you want, but you get exactly what you need. Right? me growing up as an athlete, I was a force for Letterman. In high school, I went on to play college basketball. You know, I recently got inducted into the Hall of Fame in my high school for sports. Right? So of course, I want Boys, boys continue to legacy and go on. And then I get three tall girls, two beautiful girls like oh, man, like God, why? But you know, just, I'm a different man. I'm a different father because I have these three girls. And I think, you know, my, my role and the one thing that I say is like as as a as a man, right of girl, Dad, if you will, I'm the first man they fall in love with. So it's my responsibility to show them, you know, respect and true love and chivalry, because that's where they're going to carry on in their relationships as they get older. And so I think, you know, I feel very blessed. Although, they are sisters and they're they're all flesh of my flesh and blood of my blood. There are three completely different people that represent three completely different sets of challenges and, and, and things to deal with. But I've been blessed because they're good girls, right? And I wish I could say it was because I'm such a great dad. But, um, you know, I think that they're they're just inherently they've got good sweet spirits, which is, which is a blessing to have. And then I'm just doing the best I can to guide them. I think we all can attest to this being as we get older, we become adults, we look back at our parents, and we realize every one of us has said this at some point, like, wait a minute, our parents didn't know what the heck they were doing. Right. Like, and some of us even called our parents out, right? Like, you were just winging it. They're like, Yeah, you know, and so I feel like, you know, I feel like, we're just all doing the best we can, you know, and that's, I'm doing the best we can as much as I feel like, you know, I'm doing all the things from I can from my, my daughters, I'm sure they'll tell you. Yeah, but he didn't do this, or this or this, but, but what they will definitely say is that, you know, I'm president and that I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm consistent, I'm a consistent, you know, consistent force in their life. Right. And that's, you know, that's the most important thing to me. I don't need them to always like me, I don't I don't need them to always agree with me, but I do need them to, to respect and honor Me and then with the love that we have, you know that that's something that you know, is so special, and then I feel blessed to be there for their father. Yeah. 21:20 Amazing. And you're putting all of this together, your financial advisor role your entrepreneur role, your community mindedness, your girl, Dad, your yoga, into mind, body money. So what is it? And what can we expect? 21:42 Yeah, Mind Body money is a docu series that I created. I have actually filmed all of season one, I'm in the process of talking to a variety of networks now to get it placed on on national television COMM And q1 Next year, so stay tuned. I've also created an app that's on the App Store mind dot body dot money that's on the app store as well. But the idea is that how do we become the best versions of ourselves? And we become the best versions of ourselves balancing those three areas in that order. Mind. Body, money, right? Mindset first manifestation, manifestation. Every day when people ask me how I'm doing I Thomas, the best day of my life, I say that every single day. Now, does that mean that everything is going well in my life at all times? Nope. But that's what I say. I'm manifesting positivity. Right. But health alone is so important. We're getting one body, right? Never no one's ever on their deathbed wishing they had more money. Right? So you got to take care of yourself. And then money, good stewardship of your money, right? Money can't buy you happiness, but it can pay your bills. So I can do a lot of stuff by hand. And so typically, what I find is people are unequally yoked right you might have the money hungry driven person and And admittedly, I was that person coming out of school, I want to be a million dollars. I want to, you know, you know, have a nice house nice car and buy stuff, right? But lacks substance lacked connectivity. Oh, right. And, and, and when I got all this stuff, what I realized, like, oh, an empty because it's not about the stuff. It's not about money. Right? It's about connections about love. Okay, and then you got the other people that understand spirituality? No, it's about mindset and in spirituality, and, and peace. And that's great that you feel like that you want to go on this yoga retreat. But I got a question for you. How do you pay your bills? Right. And so it's that it's the balance between those three areas. And that's what the show features different athletes, celebrities, entertainers, all the way down to your common men and women, and how the journey in life, right, you know, is navigating those three areas. And the one thing that I'll tell you, between all of the people, there is always a story of failure. There's always a story of doubt, or uncertainty that they all press through. And that's the one thing that I say common thread, like the most successful people, right that I've met in my life all can tell you a story where they were down and out or they didn't know what's gonna happen next, but they persevered, right? There's a, there's a, there's a little meme that I that I share when I'm doing my my talks and it has it's a photo of a goldmine that you can envision this in a person with a with a with a pitchfork, and they're digging in, they're digging, and they've dug like a 10 foot ditch and they get frustrated, and they turn around like, like I'm finished right? And they were only one foot away from actually hitting goal but they're like I've done so much And then the mantra here is don't don't ever give up. You never know how close you are, to, to your, to your goals to your dream. So So you swing away, you swing away until you get it. Right. And maybe maybe you'll get there in a week, they will take a year, they will take 10 years, right? Maybe Maybe it's not meant for you. Right. But But again, right, don't leave this earth wondering what if? 25:25 And out of all of the episodes that you've done and the people that you've met through mind body money? Is there a particular story that sticks out for you that you can share with the audience? 25:40 Yeah, there's two stories that come to mind. Actually, I'll share first one guest we had was on the show was Jordan sparks. She was the youngest American, I 25:51 love her. She's great. 25:52 She's awesome. Just as lovely. Off off screen as she is on screen. She shared with me so she goes on American Idol. She comes here to actually to Pasadena where I live, she cheats. She auditions at the Rose Bowl and gets cut. She didn't even make it to go see Simon and all those guys, right? She gets cut, right? And she says she remembers walking out, you know, through the parking lot with all these girls. And at the time, she was young. I think she was like 17 or so. But at the time, she said she remember seeing all these older girls and older by but I mean like 2526 year olds, I thought, Oh, my life is over. This is my only chance to make it big. And I'm done. And she thought to herself like, no, like, I'll come back don't get another way for me. So she goes back, she lives in Arizona. So she goes to a regional regional competition in in in Phoenix and wins, right and wins. And the prize for winning was a chance to go to the next city, which was in Seattle, and try again, audition again. And on that second audition, she gets picked up and then ultimately wins 26:58 the show. Amazing. 27:00 And so that story is when we're like wow, you know, like, wow, you know that what level of perseverance and just believe that like not this, isn't it? And how many of us would have faced that rejection or or stumbled in the live live? Yes, it wasn't in the cards for me. Right? But again, as long as you have breath in your body, keep pushing. Right. The other story I'll share is I had David Hasselhoff he was on my radio show my Ask the Experts radio show. And we're interviewing him. And David Hasselhoff was one of the principals of one of the first billion dollar TV franchises Baywatch, right? Um, I personally think that Knight Rider was cooler but for the for you. Gen Xers with me. But anyway, but but the US, you know, first building our franchise Baywatch, right, and we're talking about that. And again, what a lot of people don't know is that they watched initially was cancelled. It was cancelled after the first three episodes. Because yeah, they killed like five people in the first few episodes and and the viewers didn't like it. So the show got canceled. So in an attempt to revitalize the show, because like I need financing, so in little known, but David Hasselhoff in Germany is like he's huge, right? Like he's like, he's like, yeah, he's like, the biggest thing he's Yeah, yeah. Right. So he goes to Germany's like, they'll give you money, right? It goes in Germany. He raises some money. He gets like 1,000,005 to bring back the show, and comes back and does the show, right? Well, what happens is, they run out of money. They run out of money, they can't finish the episode. So like, man, we got 22 minutes of content, we need 25 And we don't have any more money. What can we do? How can we make the episodes longer slomo that is where slomo comes in. Slo Mo was to stretch out the scene so that they can get their minutes so funny that the most iconic part of the show was really a mistake was really because they didn't have money right? So story after story after story like that, that I've heard in my 22 year career most certainly in filming this Docu series is follow doc that like wow, like so many times people put a lay down so many times people could have you know, given a peck Jeff basals worked at McDonald's guys. You have like, like, like so so when somebody next to you when you're when you're working in Starbucks and the barista next to us like I'm going to be a billionaire and all scoff right you never know. 29:34 It can happen you never know. I love these like insider stories. I think it's so cool. So as we start to wrap things up, where can people find more about you about mind body money? Maybe see some little clips things like that. Where can where can people go? 29:53 Yeah, I'm pretty easy to find. My name is so unique. There's not a lot of me out there. He Sophie Taylor, Mama variety of social media platforms Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, that's at a selfie Taylor s ZYLF ie Taylor at the Sophie Taylor. For the show, we actually have a website, in addition to the social media platform. So we have a website Mind, Body money.com. So mind body money calm, you can also get information on the app store as well. You can download the app, the app store at mine dot body dot money, as well. And so yeah, we're out here we're continuing to push out new content, and, and keep everyone posted on the release of everything. But I'm super excited for what 2022 is going to bring and look forward to sharing. I feel like the bottom line for me is like when do you watch television? And and learn something? When do you watch television and feel better? And that's what I'm going to bring? That's what I'm going to bring to the world? 30:56 Well, the world certainly needs it at this point in time. So it sounds perfect to me. And now before we end, I asked everyone this same question. And it's knowing where you are now in your life and your career. What advice would you give to your younger self? 31:12 I would remind my younger self, that the road to walk a mile begins with a single step. No shortcuts. No matter how talented you are, no matter how smart you are, no matter how ambitious you are, right hard work is undefeated, you must do the work, right foot in front of the left one step at a time you'll get there. I think one of the biggest reasons that I'm successful today, it's all the slow, boring stuff. All the get rich quick, I'm gonna make a million dollars in a month and change the world all that stuff crashed and burned. 31:47 Right? So you mean all the stuff you see on social media? 31:51 Yeah, all that stuff crash and burn. It was it's the slow and steady. You know that? That is why you know, is why I'm here. Right. And so that's why I remind my younger self and it's hard, right? It's hard to listen, my long term plan at 22 was 25. Right? That was my long term plan. Right? I love that. Right? I mean, I was like, man, three years, that's 25 years old. Right? And so, you know, I can still couldn't even see past 30 like, well, what is what is that? You know, and, and then you you you blink? Right? You blink and you're like, well, 10 years has gone by 15 years gone by 20 years has gone by, you know and so that's what I would remind myself is just stay the course. Don't get you on the highs don't get too long. The lows the road to walk a mile begins with a single step. Just go. 32:37 I love it. Great advice. And Sophie, thank you so much for coming onto the podcast one more time.

Bible Reading: Ephesians 2:4-9"Okay, I'll try again," said Aurora. Turning, she jumped into the pool with a huge splash and swam for a short distance. Then she grabbed the side of the pool and gasped for air. She looked at her dad in dismay as she climbed out. "I give up, Dad.""Don't give up. You're doing better, sweetie," Dad assured her as he offered her a towel. "Come on. Let's take a break."Aurora and her father went to the concession stand, and Dad bought hot dogs, chips, and cold drinks. "Dad, you know my friend Quinn?" Aurora asked as they ate. Dad nodded. "She's going to Bible club with me," said Aurora. "Miss Amy always invites kids who want to be saved to trust in Jesus, but Quinn thinks she's okay. She says she knows she's not good enough yet, but she's trying hard to do better and thinks she's improving. How can I convince her that we're not saved by being good?""Wow! Let's think about it a bit." Dad took a bite of his hot dog and chewed thoughtfully. "Does Quinn swim?"Aurora laughed. "About like I do, and as you know, that's not very good."Dad smiled. "Why don't you ask her if she could swim all the way from California to Hawaii?""To Hawaii!" exclaimed Aurora. "Neither of us can swim even halfway across the pool!""Could Olympic swimmers do it?" asked Dad. "Could they swim from California to Hawaii?""I doubt it," replied Aurora. "Even an Olympic swimmer would get too tired after a while.""Exactly," said Dad. "The best swimmer in the world isn't good enough to swim from here to Hawaii. If someone tried, they'd have to be rescued. And none of us is good enough to be accepted by God on our own. Everyone has sinned by doing wrong, and no one with sin can stand in God's presence. We all have to be rescued--or saved--from our sins by Jesus."Aurora nodded. "I'll tell Quinn again." She smiled. "I'm sure she'll agree nobody's good enough to swim to Hawaii, and maybe this will help her understand that nobody's ever good enough to get to heaven either. We all need Jesus to save us." -Holly F. CepedaHow About You?Are you trying to be good enough for God on your own?You may try hard to be good, but it will never be enough. None of your good deeds can take away your sin. That's why you need Jesus to save you. He took the punishment for your wrongs by dying on the cross and then rose again so you could have eternal life! Trust Him to save you.Today's Key Verse:He saved us because of his mercy, not because of any good things we did. (ERV) (Titus 3:5)Today's Key Thought:You need Jesus

Americans love their pets — as many as seven out of 10 households are home to cats, dogs, birds… or more unusual animal choices. What defines a pet in the first place? Plenty of people are pushing the boundaries of the kinds of animals we usually think of as pets, blurring the lines between wild and domestic, livestock and companion, pets and pests. On this episode, we look at unusual pets and why people love and keep them — while others find them objectionable. We hear stories about ferrets and why they’re banned in some parts of the country, how one woman befriended a wild fox, and the chicken that helped a widow cope with her grief. Also heard on this week’s episode: We talk with James Serpell, an animal behavior researcher and professor emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania, about his neurotic parrot, treasure-hunting rat, and what defines a pet. Serpell has written “In the Company of Animals: A Study of Human-Animal Relationships.” Self-described “ferret people” are passionate about these mustelids, and say they’re funny, smart, and interesting pets. But owning ferrets is not permitted in California, New York City, and Hawaii — and these rules have gotten the attention of some of the most prominent politicians of our time. So why the ban on ferrets? Jad Sleiman looked into the backstory. Catherine Raven tells the story of how she befriended a wild fox — and what made their relationship different from that of owner and pet. Her book is called “Fox and I: An Uncommon Friendship.” Throughout the episode, we hear stories about people's best, worst, and strangest pets — from a field mouse thirsting for freedom, to some very fertile gerbils, to some disappointing sea monkeys, and a cat whose love language is scratching.
Last November, residents of Joint Base Pearl Harbor–Hickam military housing started to smell fuel coming out of their pipes. The US Navy said a leak from a fuel storage facility called Red Hill contaminated their well in O'ahu, leaving approximately 93,000 residents without drinking water. But this is something activists have been fearing for years. The fuel storage facility sits above the island's aquifer. If a significant leak happens, the consequences could change life as we know it in places like Honolulu and Waikiki. So, what is the Navy doing to clean the water, and what is at risk for the more than 900,000 people living on the island?

But remember, it is not their job to remember what you do for a living. It's your job to remind them. Let's get started. What's up ladies and gentlemen, welcome another episode of the real estate marketing dude, podcast. It is 2022. If you haven't been following this show, we've been on this little kick lately. And what we've been chatting about mainly has been running your business as a business not being a salesperson, just chasing your next check. Unfortunately, in the real estate space, whether you're a lender and investor or real estate broker, that's just what happens. You have to realize that you're running an entrepreneurial business and you are the business you are the brand. And that means you're running a damn business. If not, you're just a salesperson. So what we're gonna do today is because it's the beginning of the year, because it's 2022, we're gonna talk about how entrepreneurs really run their business as they spend more time setting up systems and things in their business, they could work on their business and not in it.

But I'm only have a book called work the system, what I do is take the methodology in that book, and help his owners entrepreneurs fix their life expenses by getting control over their systems. And ultimately, that allows them to make more and work less, which is what most entrepreneurs would like to do. And we kind of free up their their mind space as well.In the real estate industry, we all get into this business, because we think we're gonna work less and control our hours, but fucking nothing is further from the truth. You get in the business. And if you get busy, you have no life. And it's a major problem within it. So I think everyone here is going to really appreciate what you have to say, sorry, I'm going to cut you off.No, that's great. Yeah, I've worked a lot of folks in in real estate, whether it's investors or realtors, or developers and home flippers, or you name it, anyone who's doing any kind of work ultimately has things that they do every day, every week, every month. And our whole goal is to help them see the separate pieces that make up their lives. And then realize those can be made from organic, which means you're just doing it by the seed your pants, just reacting to mechanical, you can mechanize those things. And it starts with a shift of the way you see your work. But then once you see your work differently, you can start to take those separate pieces and get some help along the way. I'm sure a lot of people who listen to this have some assistance or some part timers people that they that they use, and how to really expand that help and duplicate what you do. And ultimately, it's allow you to buy more houses, sell more houses do do more of what you already doing, you just gonna be able to expand that. Butso many of us are control freaks, I'm guilty of this I guy, I'm the guilty, I'm your ideal client. The, you know, no one could do it as good as I can. Or, and honestly, I've been you guys, I've been going through this shit for the last three years, no BS, like I've had a road from hell building these businesses. And I've lost family time. I've suffered time with my wife. No doubt, and I have no problem sharing that with you guys. But I've also learned a lot about business throughout this last three to four years of my transformation out here to San Diego. And what I've learned a lot is what my business partners have taught me and working on the business. I'm an operator. I'm not a business owner. That's one realization I came to this year, it's very hard to go from operator to business owner by by mindset, I'm just an operator, I like being in the fucking grind, like get in the trenches. And I'm a control freak. I don't like giving up stuff because I don't know if anyone could do it quite as well as me and I think a lot of people that are entrepreneurial are in that position. Which is what real estate agents and lenders are. So how do you is it fair to say that's the first step?Yeah, it definitely is. The first step is to is realize where you are you are self employed operator, right? And it's a build, they like to stay in that phase. And that's fine just to stay in that fight phase but you're, you're going to hit a wall, right? We call it the plateau and whatever that plateau is maybe that's making, I don't know, 100 grand a year, 200 grand a year, whatever that plateau is. You're going to be able to raise the plateau a little bit if you work more hours and your pipes gonna go down if you work less hours, but you're just gonna hover there, we call it a yo yo business, basically, you're going to be there. And if you get sick or you have family issues, it's gonna go down. And then if you you know, have less responsibilities at home, you're going to go up, but you're not going to go anywhere. At the end of your life, what you built will just be a job, and you can't sell it, you can't expand it, and some people are fine with that. And if that's you, then you know what we're going to talk about the rest of today, maybe you won't be that helpful. But for those who want to go beyond that, there is a way and it is a different way of working.You're right on the money with that. But God I'll use myself, as an example here you guys is that when you will hit a plateau, you can only do so much. You won't grow your business by yourself. There is no I in team. And no, I get to the next level like and we're talking about running a business like not just being the average agent, you wait, you sell fucking 50 houses a year, congratulations, I'm talking about selling 150 houses a year 300 houses a year, becoming literally local celebrity building a brand in your market that requires business. And there's no way that anyone in the top ranks right now, regardless of what profession you're in, does this without what I think you're about to share with us. But at least the vast majority unless you're freakin Superman, but let's be honest, we're human beings. We have feelings, we have needs and whatnot, and it's very difficult. Let's start off with how you sort of walk us through how we work the system here, if you will, and let's start off with that. Like, how do you and I'm just gonna act like how do you? I feel like this is a question. But how do you know what to give up and what not to give up? This is something I personally struggled with. Because ultimately, the biggest thing is you got your business you're running, there's a million things going on. You're the CEO, CFO, accountant, CPA, you name it, you're wearing every hat. Where does it make sense? I think one of the hardest things people has is I have to pay someone for that. What do they decide? And how do you help people overcome that? Because that's the control factor, I think is just was hard for me at least Yeah.Oh, yeah, definitely. And I think that's a really important step. It was usually a few steps before that. And the reason why is to handoff. So whatever you're doing right now, and entrepreneurial people, especially in real estate has a lot of ways to make money in real estate. But people who are entrepreneurial in that space, they, they there's so much in their head and in their instincts and in their experience, that they know how to make success out of all sorts of random situations. And so they they've lived that for so many years that you had to hand over what you're doing right now, or even pieces of it, the next person you handed over to is going to drop the ball, they're going to screw it up, they're going to miss the context, they're going to miss the opportunity, they're going to botch it. And so even before you can start handing things off, is you need to do, you know, sit out, sit alone for a minute and really think, okay, of the 10 different ways I make money in real estate, what is the piece that is the most scalable, that is the most efficient, that is the most simple, that really I could build a team around. And that could be duplicated, because maybe it's not everything that you do, but there's probably certain pieces. And that's the part that you want to really think through and make a business out of, and we call the document, you write a strategic objective, because if you if you do that, then you know, okay, there's, again, a lot of ways to make money real estate, but the business I want to build is going to be Gatineau flipping houses that are in the, you know, starter houses that are under $300,000 a year, or said that would be much in San Diego, but you know, whatever, whatever the range is gonna park in space. Yeah. And so you you pick, you pick exactly the kind of housing type, you pick the exact area, you pick the exact buying type, you pick the exact, you know, all the different pieces, and you really simplify it taking this, this buying group this product this way, you know, marketing this way, and like this is the plan. And then, and then you can start bringing people on. Because both people want to do a good job, they just don't know how to, they don't know what a good job looks like. And they don't come with 20 years experience. It's not their business, they learn how dedicated and so you you have to say hey, it's a very simple thing, I need you to move this from point A to point B, I need you to to pound a real estate sign in the grass. Can you do that you dig the hole, put that in there. And yeah, someone can do that. And so the more you first have a simple strategy, then you can have simple processes and then you can bring in people to do simple things. And if those people come and go, which they do, then you can bring someone else on to do the same thing because you've you've mechanize a simplifies the pieces of your business and allow yourself to do the things that are more gray area decision making more complex. There's a lot of nuance, there's those there is you want to stay in, but you want that that piece your business to shrink, right. So right now most entrepreneurial real estate folks, everything is gray, everything has context, everything has nuance, but you want that part of your life to shrink over time, the more that can shrink, the more your business that's scalable, can can grow. And that's ultimately what you want to do. I'll say, I have a client that I had years ago actually in Guam, so we do coaching and consulting, and they buy our products and, and one of them was a realtor, right. And so she was a realtor in Guam, and she focused on selling houses and the whole island of Guam. I'd never been there before. But then she realized that her key bind type was people in the military people were coming there, you know, to be there for a few years. And they were leaving years later. And like, this was her core thing. And then she realized that there was a certain kind of house that they wanted. And then she realized that they were mainly buying houses or searching for houses, out of state or out of country, like there were somewhere else looking. And so she said, You know what, I'm just going to do social media posts, specific to this kind of buying group. And she just became the face the brand, she's very bubbly. And then she had her agents, she built up a team of agents, who just did this one type of house for this one type of buyer, who had this one type of situation where they'd be there for a while, and they would leave and they had, you know, a spouse, and one kid or whatever that might be kind of in that life range. And that was a business very simple, build a team around it, and didn't have to do all of the real estate, commercial, industrial, you know, every other kind of real estate, you know, storage rentals, renovations, she just did her thing. And that's what allowed it to be simple, profitable, easy, and ultimately more, more fun, because she could do what she likes to do, which was kind of be out there and be the face, but not actually handling the client work or the paperwork, or the, you know, the headaches that go into it.It's one of the one of my favorite books I've read in the last few years has been The One Thing by Gary Keller. And he talks a lot about that, like, pick out one thing you do well, so let's put this in the context for a couple of the agents out there or even it'll say your mortgage broker be really good at FHA loans. Now, I agree with this, I believe that when you're really good and your niche or your niche, however you want to say it, I think that is when you actually sell more and do more. I think when you the problem I think you have in real estate, because you're right, you're saying you're hitting on the DoD guys, this is really good. You might want to play this back. But what he's saying is that what are you trying to resonate, and you become the jack of all trades, you master zero. And when that occurs, you end up losing other opportunities. And if you were just to narrow down on a niche, so let's play this through on a couple different aspects. Why do real estate investors never have a listing problem? Like in any market, like real estate investors are always flipping houses. But then you have in this market right now, where inventory is very tight, regardless of where you're at in the country, you can't get a real estate agent can't get a listing if they bought one. But Riis investors are picking up properties for pennies on the dollar easily. It's because they do one thing very successfully, they focus on motivated sellers, distressed assets, and they put their cash offer in front of them over and over and over again until someone raises their hands and therefore they eventually find a property to buy. So what does that for you, you guys, realtors go out there and then they buy leads over here, then they go out and buy a software they never use, then they go out and invest in some coaching system they never take the lessons to and then they go out over here and then they go to this and this is every freaking you guys are a bunch of squirrels is what the problem is? Well, Heidi personality, like me, I'm like one of the worst of it. But how often you see that? Is that pretty common?Oh, yeah, well, and I think that people who are in sales, like realtors, it's even more common, the more you're in a sales environment, perfect face to face sales. The skill sets that you need to be really successful making connection and making these deals happen is like the opposite skill set that you need to build a business. To build a business, you have to be someone who can just sit quietly, and see the separate pieces and document their systems and be more of a you know, behind the scenes engineer than somebody who's really good on the spot. And I think that that's hard. And if you don't, if that's not your personality type, then you can know that but still know that's a key part of your business that you're lacking. And so maybe you need to bring out someone who's an operations manager. But they wouldn't have to be full time to begin with. They could help you with the operations. They could help you get those pieces dialed in they could help you line up a sequence for you. Because I mean I mean a lot people in sales and that's just not their their way of living. But they know they want it and I don't I don't say don't don't become something you're not just understand the importance of it and try it bring someone on, you make a few more sales, and then use that money to invest in your business, you're not gonna invest your time at least to invest your money in your business, and don't invest in coaching yourself to be something that you're not. I think that's because I've tried, I've tried a lot of people, you know, to make them into that kind of a project engineer, and they hear it, they think about it, they like it, but they don't do it. And I've gotten more to the point where we know what, that's really not you then find somebody who is like that, who really likes to cross the t's and dot the i's, they really like to build these separate systems, and bring them on board. And oftentimes, you have to pay those people very much. I mean, they, they really like to be behind the scenes and, and help you put those pieces together. And then you're gonna find that, again, scalability happens then.So basically, list all the stuff you hate, or you're not good at, that you have to do to get by with your business, make a list of that, outsource it, figure out how to outsource it, whether it's a VA, or maybe you hire someone in house, you hire what we call slash I'm going to give you a little bit everything. But that's what we're seeing here. Yeah.Yeah, well, but again, the first thing is, we call. So there's different methodologies into the first step to ours is systems mindset, mindset shift a strategic objective operating principles, general principles. And then after that, yeah, just like you said, it's breaking apart your business in terms of what I would do with business owners is to help them first see what what they're doing. And so it's pretty tedious, but actually writing down every single thing you do throughout the day, and do that for three days. And you're going to see, most of what you do is pretty remedial work, most of what you do, wouldn't have to happen. If you're driving out to properties to take pictures, maybe you're, you know, I don't know listing things online where someone else could list it, maybe you're doing various things that you wouldn't really have to do. And, and once you have that list that it's about, who can either do this, or doesn't need to happen at all. So automating that, delegating it, deleting it, oftentimes, a lot of what people are doing doesn't even need to happen at all, or it's the wrong thing. They're putting something that would be really great once their business was in order, but they just need to put some things in order first. And so you know, stop doing that thing for six months, and just build a few infrastructure elements first. And I think you put a good point out there in terms of the people you bring on board. In some cases, you want us an expert to do a thing, like I have a bookkeeper who just, you know, does my books, she doesn't do 10 different things. And she sends out invoices, she does the books, she prepares the things to give us my account, my counter says taxes. That's the one thing that they do. So there are some you know, I've got a guy who does video editing, he just does video editing. He's great at video editing, I'm not going to have him also do sales calls like he just does the one thing that you want to have some of those you know hired guns on your team, especially as you're growing.There's there's gonna be a specialization and then there's going to be the nuanced stuff that's like must do but someone can take care of a lot of this stuff, especially transactionally in the transactional business. Yeah, did you guys hear what he said? He's just said if you need to outsource your video editing, that's exactly what we do you guys. That means if you need to script that industry, but your videos you contact a real estate marketing dude, because that is about money making activity. Anyways, edit, take that plug real quick. So yeah, it makes a lot of sense. There's a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of stuff to unpack there. Alright. I go through I figure out what I'm doing because it is also if you're running a business, you're good at something like if you're at this stage, right? So identifying what that is and what cannot be duplicatable was one of the things I figured out early on I'm like what can I do that no one else can buy that I can't hire out. Right for realtor a lot of that's gonna be the face time the one on one go in there and close a dam appointment. You don't need to be the one to show up and take the damn photos with the photographer that's a waste of time you don't need to be the one putting up the lockbox that's a complete waste of time. If you're a lender, you don't need to be the one taking in the paperwork. That's a complete waste of time you need to get them on the phone you're pretty face in front of them, make them feel secure and then hire out all those tedious type tasks. And yeah, what does that mean you have more time to create content more time to spend with your family more time to I don't know do whatever the hell you want go on fucking vacation who cares? Live life but it makes a lot of sense. I'm living in it right now everything that he's saying is right on you guys and I've made the shift in like literally 12 months 1218 months I would say doesn't happen overnight though does it?No it doesn't it that's why we like get people to write some things down so that they can hold themselves accountable to actually sticking with the plan that came up with because as you know, there's always that next deal that comes in the door and it takes you off track and you're like well I've been really focused on this this housing type but then you know this multi multifamily you know, unit came in, so I'm gonna get You know, spend my a spinner wheels with this for next two months. And so you have to really be eventually discipline to stay in that line. And the other piece about really doing what you're really good at Mike is, eventually, you become so good at that you can start charging premium prices, you can start to really raise the rate of what you you are personally worth at doing what you do, because you don't do hire things. You just do three things. And so I you know, and that depends on different industries. I don't really know how much of a premium you can put on your pricing in real estate, butI think quite a bit. Let's play it out. I'm gonna be two different examples. Well, you live in Hawaii, right. What's the town you live in the city again?I live in Kelowna. So Kawhi is the island. Yeah, soKawhi is the island. But Hawaii is a bunch of different islands. So there's a difference between a Hawaii real estate agent and then one that specializes just on that island? Yep. Yeah, like the one who's just on that island is going to demand a higher rate than the one that's not there. And the thing that I think too, in real estate is that we often be like, Oh, my God, people often don't care as much about price, as I think we put an emphasis on and I think that goes for any business. There's a reason why Ritz Carlton exists and Holiday Inn. It's just based upon the experience, there's gonna be a market for both you guys, and you have to realize that it's one of the biggest questions when a realtor what's happening in the industry right now is there's a lot of we call it commission compression. There's a lot of outside forces, trying to remove the Commission's there's a lot of outside forces trying to remove Realtors from the equation. Do a travel agent reboot, if you will. But and that's where a lot of this in the industry is a lot of agents having to do things differently having to reposition themselves having to rebrand themselves. And it's what you're saying is right on because I the whole message of the show you guys, you guys got to own one you got you got to do one thing with your personal brand very, very well.Right? Yeah, totally. And I and, and as you probably know, from talking to me, I work a lot of industries, hundreds of them. So I don't know much about real estate. But I know that I had a client years ago who owned a fleet of taxis, right? It was in the taxi, it's like, maybe eight years ago, nine years ago. And we all know what's what's happened to that industry, right with Uber and Lyft, and all that stuff. And at the time, you know, everyone kind of wore his his fleet, the different different colored cars, different clothing that his drivers wore, they would say different things, the brand wasn't really tight, they had some repeat clients, they had some private clients, they had some, you know, high end, low end, you know, will be at the airport, they're all different things. I said, you can see what's coming with technology and what's happening and, and you're really gonna have to be, you know, clear on what your brand is, I mean, and we came up with this whole plan, which was going to be you know, really higher end cars, it was going to be private clients, it's going to be clients who wanted consistency, they wanted to get to know you, they were going to be your personal drivers. And really just focus on that don't Don't be the generic, Uber Lippard just coming up then. And, you know, he just didn't, he didn't go didn't go for it. He said, Well, you know, I've been a miss out in the airport, I'm gonna miss out on this, I'm gonna miss out of that. And my drivers don't want to all wear a uniform, and they don't all want to be consistent. So the people didn't want to be consistent on his team. And therefore he just diluted and never heard from the guy again, I'm sure he's out of business, he's probably probably he's probably an Uber driver right now. And I think, like you said, it probably happening exactly the same in real estate. Not that I follow it closely. But if all of the low end people who want the cheapest people who want who are fine using an app or using a website to find their own house, and they're really trying to cut the commission down i'll be trying to be at the highest and you know, very specific, very custom very unique, you know, know, know your market know your niche, know your, what, you're the best ad in the world in terms of helping in this particular industry, and then charge a premium. And don't be ashamed about it. Like yeah, I help people find houses that have Olympic sized swimming pools that are near the ocean or whatever. And that's what I do. If you want Olympic sized swimming pool, I know where all the Maranta it costs extra 10 grand, I don't know, I mean that here'sthe hardest part of that is that when you do make the shift, guys, this is what happens. The hardest part about making it is that there will be an opportunity that doesn't fit your new narrative that you have to turn down. It'll be a short term loss for a long term game, though you have to realize that Yeah, and just like the scenario here would be like, Okay, let's just say I'm in San Diego I only focus on coastal properties. So that means I'm west of the five you know, the market or their you know what that is? I'd focus just on the west of the five but let's just say I get a listing 20 miles inland. I got to say no to that listing, because what we're saying while I build my brand going west of the five because over the long term, if you play your cards right you fully commit You'll win out. But in the short term, you might lose out in that little than that one deal that you just took inland. So you have to discuss and figure out what that is for you. And be willing to do it is the hardest partis there's two things, you also wanna think about what then I totally agree with you, Mike. One of them is, if you're consistently getting work that's outside the bubble you've defined, find other partners, friends, referrals that you can send out and get paid something for, you know, I used to this kind of work, but I don't anymore, I give it to give it to Rick. Okay, at least I'm gonna get 1000 bucks or whatever, I'm gonna get some fee, but I can keep my head straight. That's one way to do it. And the other way to do it, and this is what I do as a consultant, is I do one thing, I help people, you know, shift from being, you know, self employed business owners to being true business owners kind of help them make that shift using a methodology. But if somebody comes to me and says, Josh, I love your podcast, I love I want to work with you. I mean, I'm working on this startup, and we're doing whatever, you know, can you work with me? And I'm really intrigued by it, I will just raise my fees dramatically. And I'll say, You know what, it's going to be $10,000 a day. I'm just throwing a number out there. But I'm happy to work with you just $10,000 a day. And if he's like, sounds great. Let's do it. Like, Oh, okay. Well, you know, so. So it's more of a not saying no to opportunities, but you just raising your rates, because it takes you off of your key business. And I think that helps people during the transition period, as well, as they're not saying no, they're just saying, you know, my time is worth this, it's going to be a distraction, it's gonna take me off course, I'm going to put a high dollar fee onto that. If it happens, I'll do it. But if it doesn't happen, I'm okay with that, too. I did that with a speaking event. I don't I don't do keynote speaking. If you're watching this, you probably know, I'm not that dynamic of a person. And so I those persons, like I want you to speak at our annual event, it's going to be so important. And I'm like, Well, I don't really do that. It's not part of our business plan. It's not reallya perfect example. Like, would most people be like, I speak in a keynote I'm in. But you're like, so disciplined that you know, your lane.Yeah. And it's not scalable. It's not going to be I can't use my team to do it. I have to travel. Thisis my team to give a keynote. That's funny.So it's a, so I said, Okay, so how long is it? It's, it's an hour to $5,000. Okay. He Said, She Said, sounds good. You know, and like, Okay, well, I guess I'll, you know, do my standard by standard stick for five grand and that'll go horrible. Call it a day, but but it's not something I want to do every day. But then I can take that money and invest in things that are scalable, that don't require me to be here. And so that's, that's, I think, mentality that you want to have. But like you said, it doesn't happen in a day you have to be disciplined. I'm personally not discipline. I mean, I that's something that I was just talking to, you know, Sam, the author of the book is that that's 2020 to be more disciplined. That's and entrepreneurs have a hard time with that. Yeah.No doubt. Well, this has been awesome. Closing notes, closing thoughts, guys. The one thing that you have to own in the real estate business is your network, your database, anyone who you know, basically your Facebook list because 88% of business is going to come from the people that are just around you that either know you personally met you they referred to you or you have worked with them in the past. That's where business comes from in real estate. So if you're gonna own one thing on your damn database, on your social media accounts, and make sure every single person you know knows what the hell you do, and if you need help doing that, we would love to help you script edit and distribute your video content. Josh, why don't you go ahead and tell people how they can find you read the book, check out his stuff, you guys it's been this is while we always talk about making money and all the glamour shitter real estate buying nice cars and all of that you don't get there unless you do this first. So look this guy up. And Josh, go ahead and tell them how they can find you.Sure, yeah, could a WT s enterprises calm and there, you can get a copy of the book, the book summary. So if you don't wanna read the whole book, which I recommend you get the book summary there for free other business resources and all we do is help people like you scale their business with with this methodology. So coaching consulting done for you services, and if you want something else, maybe you want to ship your business, I trained consultants so I train and certify consultants in this method because I can't do all the work and tons of work out there. So if you ever want to make career change or be consultant, let me know and happy to talk about that.Love it man.

Today we're talking about the amazing difference that a month of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo can make in your life, told through the story of Alex McClintock, of Hawaii. Alex is currently a diver in the Coast Guard, one of the hardest careers to train for, but his story starts in his early 20s when he felt completely stagnant. After dropping out of college and feeling increasingly lost, Alex decided to try chanting for one month, just to see what happened. He quickly realized that he didn't value his own life, and as he took the steps to build his confidence, he changed everything.Note: To join our 31-day chanting journey beginning January 18, 2022, sign up here.CHEAT SHEET1:13 Introduction to Alex1:24 Why Alex decided to try chanting for a month5:08 Two things that changed right away10:04 How he decided to join the Coast Guard12:46 What the struggle to value his life looked like17:00 Alex's journey through dive school23:25 How his Buddhist practice turned him into a person of action29:23 The struggle to pass exams after dive school34:37 The role of the Buddhist community in his transformation38:27 His favorite Buddhist quote40:34 Advice for anyone who wants to value their life more greatlyReferences: “On Rebuking Slander of the Law,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 444 The New Human Revolution, vol. 16, p. 28

Tonight we are going to tell you a tale. A superb tale. A tale as old as time that takes us from the beginnings of civilization until today. This tale will thrill you and chill you. It may elicit feelings of dread and sadness. It may make you angry. At times it may make you uneasily laugh like the friend at school that was kicked in the balls but couldn't show his weakness. It's a subject that people continually argue about and debate with savage ferocity. Tonight we are talking about executions! We'll talk about the methods and the reasons behind executions throughout the years. Then we'll talk about some famous executions, as well as some of the more fucked up ones. And by fucked up, we mean botched. Bad stuff. This episode isn't meant to be a debate for or against executions but merely to discuss them and the crazy shit surrounding them. So with all that being said, Let's rock and roll! Capital punishment has been practiced in the history of virtually all known societies and places. The first established death penalty laws date as far back as the Eighteenth Century B.C. in the Code of King Hammurabi of Babylon, which codified the death penalty for 25 different crimes. The Code of Hammurabi was one of the earliest and most complete written legal codes and was proclaimed by the Babylonian king Hammurabi, who reigned from 1792 to 1750 B.C. Hammurabi expanded the city-state of Babylon along the Euphrates River to unite all of southern Mesopotamia. The Hammurabi code of laws, a collection of 282 rules, established standards for commercial interactions and set fines and punishments to meet the requirements of justice. Hammurabi's Code was carved onto a massive, finger-shaped black stone stele (pillar) that was looted by invaders and finally rediscovered in 1901. The text, compiled at the end of Hammurabi's reign, is less a proclamation of principles than a collection of legal precedents, set between prose celebrating Hammurabi's just and pious rule. Hammurabi's Code provides some of the earliest examples of the doctrine of “lex talionis,” or the laws of retribution, sometimes better known as “an eye for an eye the greatest soulfly song ever! The Code of Hammurabi includes many harsh punishments, sometimes demanding the removal of the guilty party's tongue, hands, breasts, eye, or ear. But the code is also one of the earliest examples of an accused person being considered innocent until proven guilty. The 282 laws are all written in an “if-then form.” For example, if a man steals an ox, he must pay back 30 times its value. The laws range from family law to professional contracts and administrative law, often outlining different standards of justice for the three classes of Babylonian society—the propertied class, freedmen, and slaves. A doctor's fee for curing a severe wound would be ten silver shekels for a gentleman, five shekels for a freedman, and two shekels for a slave. So, it was less expensive when you were a lower-class citizen. Penalties for malpractice followed the same scheme: a doctor who killed a wealthy patient would have his hands cut off, while only financial restitution was required if the victim was a slave. Crazy! Some examples of the death penalty laws at this time are as follows: If a man accuses another man and charges him with homicide but cannot bring proof against him, his accuser shall be killed. Holy shit. If a man breaks into a house, they shall kill him and hang him in front of that same house. The death penalty was also part of the Hittite Code in the 14th century B.C., but only partially. The most severe offenses typically were punished through enslavement, although crimes of a sexual nature often were punishable by death. The Hittite laws, also known as the Code of the Nesilim, constitute an ancient legal code dating from c. 1650 – 1500 BCE. The Hittite laws were kept in use for roughly 500 years, and many copies show that other than changes in grammar, what might be called the 'original edition' with its apparent disorder, was copied slavishly; no attempt was made to 'tidy up' by placing even apparent afterthoughts in a more appropriate position. The Draconian constitution, or Draco's code, was a written law code enforced by Draco near the end of the 7th century BC; its composition started around 621BC. It was written in response to the unjust interpretation and modification of oral law by Athenian aristocrats. Aristotle, the chief source for knowledge of Draco, claims that he was the first to write Athenian laws and that Draco established a constitution enfranchising hoplites, the lower class soldiers. The Draconian laws were most noteworthy for their harshness; they were written in blood rather than ink. Death was prescribed for almost all criminal offenses. Solon, who was the magistrate in 594 BCE, later repealed Draco's code and published new laws, retaining only Draco's homicide statutes. In the 5th century B.C., the Roman Law of the Twelve Tables also contained the death penalty. Death sentences were carried out by such means as beheading, boiling in oil, burying alive, burning, crucifixion, disembowelment, drowning, flaying alive, hanging, impalement, stoning, strangling, being thrown to wild animals, and quartering. We'll talk more about that later. The earliest attempt by the Romans to create a code of law was the Laws of the Twelve Tables. A commission of ten men (Decemviri) was appointed (c. 455 B.C.) to draw up a code of law binding on patrician and plebeian and which consuls would have to enforce. The commission produced enough statutes to fill ten bronze tablets. Mosaic Law codified many capital crimes. There is evidence that Jews used many different techniques, including stoning, hanging, beheading, crucifixion (copied from the Romans), throwing the criminal from a rock, and sawing asunder. The most infamous execution of history occurred approximately 29 AD with the crucifixion of that one guy, Jesus Christ, outside Jerusalem. About 300 years later, Emperor Constantine, after converting to Christianity, abolished crucifixion and other cruel death penalties in the Roman Empire. In 438, the Code of Theodosius made more than 80 crimes punishable by death. Britain influenced the colonies more than any other country and has a long history of punishment by death. About 450 BC, the death penalty was often enforced by throwing the condemned into a quagmire, which is not only the character from Family Guy, and another word for dilemma but in this case is a soft boggy area of land. By the 10th Century, hanging from the gallows was the most frequent execution method. William the Conqueror opposed taking life except in war and ordered no person to be hanged or executed for any offense. Nice guy, right? However, he allowed criminals to be mutilated for their crimes. During the middle ages, capital punishment was accompanied by torture. Most barons had a drowning pit as well as gallows, and they were used for major as well as minor crimes. For example, in 1279, two hundred and eighty-nine Jews were hanged for clipping coins. What the fuck is that you may be wondering. Well, Clipping was taking a small amount of metal off the edge of hand-struck coins. Over time, the precious metal clippings could be saved up and melted into bullion (a lump of precious metal) to be sold or used to make new coins. Under Edward I, two gatekeepers were killed because the city gate had not been closed in time to prevent the escape of an accused murderer. Burning was the punishment for women's high treason, and men were hanged, drawn, and quartered. Beheading was generally accepted for the upper classes. One could be burned to death for marrying a Jew. Pressing became the penalty for those who would not confess to their crimes—the executioner placed heavy weights on the victim's chest until death. On the first day, he gave the victim a small quantity of bread, on the second day a small drink of bad water, and so on until he confessed or died. Under the reign of Henry VIII, the number of those put to death is estimated as high as 72,000. Boiling to death was another penalty approved in 1531, and there are records to show some people cooked for up to two hours before death took them. When a woman was burned, the executioner tied a rope around her neck when she was connected to the stake. When the flames reached her, she could be strangled from outside the ring of fire. However, this often failed, and many were burnt alive. In Britain, the number of capital offenses continually increased until the 1700's when two hundred and twenty-two crimes were punishable by death. These included stealing from a house for forty shillings, stealing from a shop the value of five shillings, robbing a rabbit warren, cutting down a tree, and counterfeiting tax stamps. However, juries tended not to convict when the penalty was significant, and the crime was not. Reforms began to take place. In 1823, five laws were passed, removing about a hundred crimes from the death penalty. Between 1832 and 1837, many capital offenses were swept away. In 1840, there was a failed attempt to abolish all capital punishment. Through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, more and more capital punishments were abolished, not only in Britain but also all across Europe; until today, only a few European countries retain the death penalty. The first recorded execution in the English American colonies was in 1608 when officials executed George Kendall of Virginia for supposedly plotting to betray the British to the Spanish. In 1612, Virginia's governor, Sir Thomas Dale, implemented the Divine, Moral, and Martial Laws that made death the penalty for even minor offenses such as stealing grapes, killing chickens, killing dogs or horses without permission, or trading with Indians. Seven years later, these laws were softened because Virginia feared that no one would settle there. Well, no shit. In 1622, the first legal execution of a criminal, Daniel Frank, occurred in, of course, Virginia for the crime of theft. Some colonies were very strict in using the death penalty, while others were less so. In Massachusetts Bay Colony, the first execution was in 1630, but the earliest capital statutes did not occur until later. Under the Capital Laws of New England that went into effect between 1636-1647, the death penalty was set forth for pre-meditated murder, sodomy, witchcraft, adultery, idolatry, blasphemy, assault in anger, rape, statutory rape, manstealing, perjury in a capital trial, rebellion, manslaughter, poisoning, and bestiality. A scripture from the Old Testament accompanied early laws. By 1780, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts only recognized seven capital crimes: murder, sodomy, burglary, buggery, arson, rape, and treason. And for those wondering, The Buggery Act of 1533, formally An Act for the punishment of the vice of Buggerie, was an Act of the Parliament of England that was passed during the reign of Henry VIII. It was the country's first civil sodomy law. The Act defined buggery as an unnatural sexual act against the will of God and Man. This term was later determined by the courts to include only anal penetration and bestiality. The New York colony instituted the so-called Duke's Laws of 1665. This list of laws directed the death penalty for denial of the true God, pre-meditated murder, killing someone who had no weapon of defense, killing by lying in wait or by poisoning, sodomy, buggery, kidnapping, perjury in a capital trial, traitorous denial of the king's rights or raising arms to resist his authority, conspiracy to invade towns or forts in the colony and striking one's mother or father (upon complaint of both). The two colonies that were more lenient concerning capital punishment were South Jersey and Pennsylvania. In South Jersey, there was no death penalty for any crime, and there were only two crimes, murder, and treason, punishable by death. Way to go, Jersey Raccoons! Some states were more severe. For example, by 1837, North Carolina required death for the crimes of murder, rape, statutory rape, slave-stealing, stealing banknotes, highway robbery, burglary, arson, castration, buggery, sodomy, bestiality, dueling where death occurs, (and this insidious shit), hiding a slave with intent to free him, taking a free Negro out of state to sell him, bigamy, inciting slaves to rebel, circulating seditious literature among slaves, accessory to murder, robbery, burglary, arson, or mayhem and others. However, North Carolina did not have a state prison and, many said, no suitable alternative to capital punishment. So, instead of building a fucking prison to hold criminals, they just made the penalty for less severe crimes punishable by death. What the shit, North Carolina?!? The first reforms of the death penalty occurred between 1776-1800. Thomas Jefferson and four others, authorized to undertake a complete revision of Virginia's laws, proposed a law that recommended the death penalty for only treason and murder. After a stormy debate, the legislature defeated the bill by one vote. The writing of European theorists such as Montesquieu, Voltaire, and Bentham had a significant effect on American intellectuals, as did English Quaker prison reformers John Bellers and John Howard. Organizations were formed in different colonies for the abolition of the death penalty and to relieve poor prison conditions. Dr. Benjamin Rush, a renowned Philadelphia citizen, proposed abolishing capital punishment. William Bradford, Attorney General of Pennsylvania, was ordered to investigate capital punishment. In 1793 he published “An Enquiry How Far the Punishment of Death is Necessary” in Pennsylvania. Bradford strongly insisted that the death penalty be retained but admitted it was useless in preventing certain crimes. He said the death penalty made convictions harder to obtain because in Pennsylvania, and indeed in all states, the death penalty was mandatory. Juries would often not return a guilty verdict because of this fact, which makes sense. In response, in 1794, the Pennsylvania legislature abolished capital punishment for all crimes except murder “in the first degree,” the first time murder had been broken down into “degrees.” In New York, in 1796, the legislature authorized construction of the state's first prison, abolished whipping, and reduced the number of capital offenses from thirteen to two. Virginia and Kentucky passed similar reform bills. Four more states reduced their capital crimes: Vermont in 1797 to three; Maryland in 1810, to four; New Hampshire in 1812, to two and Ohio in 1815 to two. Each of these states built state penitentiaries. A few states went in the opposite direction. Rhode Island restored the death penalty for rape and arson; Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Connecticut raised death crimes from six to ten, including sodomy, maiming, robbery, and forgery. Many southern states made more crimes capital, especially for slaves. Assholes. The first profound reform era occurred between 1833-1853. Public executions were attacked as cruel. Sometimes tens of thousands of eager viewers would show up to view hangings; local merchants would sell souvenirs and alcohol. Which, I'm not sure if I hate or absolutely love. Fighting and pushing would often break out as people jockeyed for the best view of the hanging or the corpse! Onlookers often cursed the widow or the victim and would try to tear down the scaffold or the rope for keepsakes. Violence and drunkenness often ruled towns far into the night after “justice had been served.” People are fucking weird, dude. Many states enacted laws providing private hangings. Rhode Island (1833), Pennsylvania (1834), New York (1835), Massachusetts (1835), and New Jersey (1835) all abolished public hangings. By 1849, fifteen states were holding private hangings. This move was opposed by many death penalty abolitionists who thought public executions would eventually cause people to cry out against execution itself. For example, in 1835, Maine enacted what was in effect a moratorium on capital punishment after over ten thousand people who watched a hanging had to be restrained by police after they became unruly and began fighting. All felons sentenced to death would have to remain in prison at hard labor and could not be executed until one year had elapsed and then only on the governor's order. No governor ordered an execution under the “Maine Law” for twenty-seven years. Though many states argued the merits of the death penalty, no state went as far as Maine. The most influential reformers were the clergy, of course. Ironically, the small but influential group that opposed the abolitionists was the clergy. Ok, let's talk about electrocution. Want to know how the electric chair came to be? Well, Electrocution as a method of execution came onto the scene in an implausible manner. Edison Company, with its DC (direct current) electrical systems, began attacking Westinghouse Company and its AC (alternating current) electrical systems as they were pressing for nationwide electrification with alternating current. To show how dangerous AC could be, Edison Company began public demonstrations by electrocuting animals. People reasoned that if electricity could kill animals, it could kill people. In 1888, New York approved the dismantling of its gallows and the building of the nation's first electric chair. It held its first victim, William Kemmler, in 1890, and even though the first electrocution was clumsy at best, other states soon followed the lead. Between 1917 and 1955, the death penalty abolition movement again slowed. Washington, Arizona, and Oregon in 1919-20 reinstated the death penalty. In 1924, the first execution by cyanide gas took place in Nevada, when Tong war gang murderer Gee Jon became its first victim. Get this shit. The frigging state wanted to secretly pump cyanide gas into Jon's cell at night while he was asleep as a more humanitarian way of carrying out the penalty. Still, technical difficulties prohibited this, and a special “gas chamber” was hastily built. Other concerns developed when less “civilized” methods of execution failed. In 1930, Mrs. Eva Dugan became the first female to be executed by Arizona. The execution was botched when the hangman misjudged the drop, and Mrs. Dugan's head was ripped from her body. More states converted to electric chairs and gas chambers. During this time, abolitionist organizations sprang up all across the country, but they had little effect. Several stormy protests were held against the execution of certain convicted felons, like Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were convicted of spying on behalf of the Soviet Union. The couple was convicted of providing top-secret information about radar, sonar, jet propulsion engines, and valuable nuclear weapon designs. At that time, the United States was supposedly the only country with nuclear weapons. Convicted of espionage in 1951, they were executed by the United States federal government in 1953 in the Sing Sing correctional facility in Ossining, New York, becoming the first American civilians to be executed for such charges and the first to receive that penalty during peacetime. However, these protests held little opposition against the death penalty itself. In fact, during the anti-Communist period, with all its fears and hysteria, Texas Governor Allan Shivers seriously suggested that capital punishment be the penalty for membership in the Communist Party. The movement against capital punishment revived again between 1955 and 1972. England and Canada completed exhaustive studies which were largely critical of the death penalty, and these were widely circulated in the U.S. Death row criminals gave their moving accounts of capital punishment in books and films. Convicted robber, kidnapper, and rapist Caryl Chessman, published “Cell 2455 Death Row” and “Trial by Ordeal.” Barbara Graham's story was utilized in the book and movie “I Want to Live!” after her execution. She was executed in the gas chamber at San Quentin Prison on the same day as two convicted accomplices, Jack Santo and Emmett Perkins. All of them were involved in a robbery that led to the murder of an elderly widow. Television shows were broadcast on the death penalty. Hawaii and Alaska ended capital punishment in 1957, and Delaware did so the following year. Controversy over the death penalty gripped the nation, forcing politicians to take sides. Delaware restored the death penalty in 1961. Michigan abolished capital punishment for treason in 1963. Voters in 1964 abolished the death penalty in Oregon. In 1965 Iowa, New York, West Virginia, and Vermont ended the death penalty. New Mexico abolished the death penalty in 1969. The controversy over the death penalty continues today. There is a strong movement against lawlessness propelled by citizens' fears of security. Politicians at the national and state levels are taking the floor of legislatures and calling for more frequent death penalties, death penalties for more crimes, and longer prison sentences. Those opposing these moves counter by arguing that harsher sentences do not slow crime and that crime is slightly or the same as in the past. FBI statistics show murders are now up. (For example, 9.3 persons per 100,000 were murdered in 1973, and 9.4 persons per 100,000 were murdered in 1992, and as of today, it's upwards of 14.4 people per 100,000. This upswing might be because of more advanced crime technology, as well as more prominent news and media. Capital punishment has been completely abolished in all European countries except for Belarus and Russia, which has a moratorium and has not conducted an execution since September 1996. The complete ban on capital punishment is enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (EU). Two widely adopted protocols of the European Convention on Human Rights of the Council of Europe are thus considered a central value. Of all modern European countries, San Marino, Portugal, and the Netherlands were the first to abolish capital punishment, whereas only Belarus still practices capital punishment in some form or another. In 2012, Latvia became the last EU member state to abolish capital punishment in wartime. Ok, so now let's switch gears from the history of capital punishment and executions in general and get into what we know you beautiful bastards come here for. Let's talk about some methods used throughout the years, and then we'll talk about some famous executions and some fucked and messed up ones. Methods: We've discussed a few of these before, but some are so fucked up we're going to discuss them again. Boiling To Death: A slow and agonizing punishment, this method traditionally saw the victim gradually lowered — feet-first — into boiling oil, water, or wax (although uses of boiling wine and molten lead have also been recorded). If the shock of the pain did not render them immediately unconscious, the person would experience the excruciating sensation of their outer layers of skin, utterly destroyed by immersion burns, dissolving right off their body, followed by the complete breakdown of the fatty tissue, boiling away beneath. Emperor Nero is said to have dispatched thousands of Christians in this manner. At the same time, in the Middle Ages, the primary recipients of the punishment were not killers or rapists but coin forgers, particularly in Germany and the Holy Roman Empire. In Britain, meanwhile, King Henry VIII introduced the practice for executing those who used poison to commit murder. Shockingly, the practice is believed to have been carried out as recently as 2002, when the government of Uzbekistan, led by Islam Karimov, was alleged to have tortured several suspected terrorists to death by boiling. The Blood Eagle: A technique ascribed to ancient Norse warriors, the blood eagle, mixed brutality and poetic imagery that only the Vikings could. First, the victim's back would be hacked open, and the skin ripped apart, exposing the spinal column. The ribs would then be snapped from the spine and forcibly bent backward until they faced outwards from the body, forming a pair of bloody, shattered eagle's wings. As a horrifying finale, the lungs would then be pulled from the body cavity and coated with stinging salt, causing eventual death by suffocation. There is some question whether this technique was ever actually used as the only accounts come from Norse literature. Odin did this shit, you know it. Several scholars claim that the act we know of today is simply a result of poor translating and misunderstands the strong association of the eagle with blood and death in Norse imagery. That said, every account is consistent in that in each case, the victim is a nobleman being punished for murdering his father. The good news for any poor soul who might have suffered this brutal death? The agony and blood loss from the initial wounds would probably have caused them to pass out long before the lungs were removed from their bodies. Impalement: Most famously used by Vlad the Impaler, 15th-century ruler of Wallachia (in present-day Romania) and inspiration for Count Dracula, the act of impalement has a long, grim history. While images tend to depict people skewered through the midsection and then held aloft — in a manner that would almost certainly bring about a rapid death — the actual process was a much longer, horrifically drawn-out ordeal. Traditionally, the stake would be partially sharpened and planted, point up, in the ground. The victim would then be placed over the spike as it was inserted partway into the rectum or vagina. As their body weight dragged them further onto the pole, the semi-greased wooden stake would force its way up through their body, piercing organs with agonizing slowness as it eventually penetrated the entire torso, finally tearing an exit wound through the skin of the shoulder, neck or throat. Holy shishkabob. Or bill. Or Karen. The earliest records of the torture come from 1772 B.C. in Babylon, where the aforementioned King Hammurabi ordered a woman be executed in this way for killing her husband. But its use continued until as recently as the 20th century when the Ottoman government employed the technique during the Armenian genocide of 1915-1923. Which is super fucked up. According to some accounts, it could take the victim — exposed, bleeding, and writhing in tormented agony — as long as eight whole days to die. Oh my hell! Keelhauling: Walking the plank might not be the most pleasant of deaths, but it seems moderately more humane than the other favored maritime punishment of keelhauling. A punishment that often ended in death due to the severity of the wounds sustained (or was simply carried out until the point of death), it saw the victim, legs weighted and suspended from a rope, dropped from the bow of the ship, and then rapidly pulled underwater along the length of the hull — and over the keel (the beam that runs longitudinally down the center of the underside to the stern. In the age of old, old wooden sailing ships, the hull of a vessel would generally be coated in a thick layer of barnacles, whose shells could be rock hard and razor-sharp. As the drowning sailor was yanked relentlessly through the saltwater, these barnacles would strip the skin from his body, gouging out raw chunks of flesh and even, by some accounts, tearing off whole limbs or severing the head. If the sailor was still alive, they might be hung from the mast for 15 minutes before going in again. In some cases, the victim would have an oil-soaked sponge — containing a breath of air — stuffed into their mouth to prevent a “merciful” drowning. Employed mainly by the Dutch and the French from the 1500s until it was abolished in 1853, accounts of its use date back to Greece in 800 B.C. The Roman Candle: Many of the worst execution methods ever devised involve fire — from burning witches at stake in medieval Britain to roasting criminals alive in the hot metal insides of the brazen bull in Ancient Greece — but few match the sheer lack of humanity as the Roman Candle. A rumored favorite of the mad Roman Emperor Nero, this method saw the subject tied to a stake and smeared with flammable pitch (tree or plant resin), then set ablaze, slowly burning to death from the feet up. What sets this above the many other similar methods is that the victims were sometimes lined up outside to provide the lighting for one of Nero's evening parties. Being Hanged, Drawn, And Quartered: First recorded in England during the 13th century, this unusually extreme — even for the time — mode of execution was made the statutory punishment for treason in 1351. Though it was intended to be an act of such barbarous severity that no one would ever risk committing a treasonous act, there were nevertheless plenty of recipients over the next 500 years. The process of being hanged, drawn, and quartered began with the victim being dragged to the site of execution while strapped to a wooden panel, which was in turn tied to a horse. They would then experience a slow hanging, in which, rather than being dropped to the traditional quick death of a broken neck, they would instead be left to choke horribly as the rope tore up the skin of their throat, their body weight dragging them downwards. Some had the good fortune to die at this stage, including the infamous Gunpowder Plot conspirator Guy Fawkes, who ensured a faster death by leaping from the gallows. Once half-strangled, the drawing would begin. The victim would be strapped down and then slowly disemboweled, their stomachs sliced open, and their intestines and other significant organs hacked apart and pulled — “drawn” — from the body. The genitals would often be mutilated and ripped from between their legs. Those unlucky enough to still be alive at this point might witness their organs burned in front of them before they were finally decapitated. Once death had finally claimed them, the recipient's body would be carved into four pieces — or “quartered” — and the parts sent to prominent areas of the country as a warning to others. The head would often be taken to the infamous Tower of London, where it would be impaled on a spike and placed on the walls “for the mockery of London.” Rat Torture: As recently depicted in that horrible show, Game Of Thrones, rat torture is ingenious in its disgusting simplicity. In its most basic form, a bucket containing live rats is placed on the exposed torso of the victim, and heat is applied to the base of the bucket. The rats, crazy with fear from the heat, tear and gnaw their way into the abdomen of the victim, clawing and ripping through skin, flesh, organs, and intestines in their quest to escape. Possessing the most powerful biting and chewing motion of any rodent, rats can make short work of a human stomach. Along with the unimaginable pain, the victim would also suffer the sick horror of feeling the large, filthy creatures writhing around inside their guts as they died. While associated with Elizabethan England — where the Tower of London was said to have housed a “Dungeon of Rats,” a pitch-black room below high watermark that would draw in rats from the River Thames to torment the room's inhabitants — the practice has been used far more recently. General Pinochet is said to have employed the technique during his dictatorship of Chile (1973-1990), while reports from Argentina during the National Reorganization Process in the late 1970s and early '80s claimed victims were subjected to a version in which live rats — or sometimes spiders — were inserted into the subject's body via a tube in the rectum or vagina….yep. Bamboo Torture Forcing thin shards of bamboo under the fingernails has long been cited as an interrogation method, but bamboo has been used to creatively — and slowly — execute a person, too. Allegedly used by the Japanese on American prisoners of war, it saw the victim tied down to a frame over a patch of newly sprouting bamboo plants. One of the fastest-growing plants in the world, capable of up to three feet of growth in 24 hours, the sharp-tipped plants would slowly pierce the victim's skin — and then continue to grow. The result was death by gradual, continuous, multiple impalements, the equivalent of being dropped on a bed of sharpened stakes in terrible slow motion. Despite the practice having roots in the former areas of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and Siam (now Thailand) in the 19th century, there are no proven instances of it being used during WWII. It's certainly possible, however, and it has been shown that the technique, among the worst execution methods ever, works: A 2008 episode of MythBusters found that bamboo was capable of penetrating a human-sized lump of ballistic gelatin over three days. https://m.imdb.com/list/ls059738828/

A World War II Era underground storage tank containing over 100 million gallons of jet fuel at the Red Hill Fuel Facility has been leaking into the aquifer that provides water to the people of Oahu. Until recently, the Navy denied there were leaks or that the water was unsafe despite multiple complaints of health problems and an oil sheen found in the tap water. Now, the Oahu Water Protectors have gained the Navy's attention and that of local and state elected officials. Wayne Tanaka of the Sierra Club of Hawaii speaks with Clearing the FOG about the fuel facility, what is at stake and how they are organizing to hold the US Navy accountable and shut the facility down. He also discusses the bigger picture of the environmental destruction caused by the US Military and its occupation of Hawai'i. For more information, visit PopularResistance.org.
