"I think there are some important economic errors in the stories I see people telling about crypto, on Twitter and elsewhere — errors that have important implications for how we should think about the value of Bitcoin and other blockchain assets." - Noahpinion Unfortunately I think there are quite the few economic errors in Noahpinion's article titled, "Economic misconceptions of the crypto world." While he may actually have some fundamental points to add around much of the "crypto" space and their failure to understand what creates value, I think it shows Noahpinion's own misconceptions when he incorrectly applies some of the common crypto fallacies to Bitcoin, without understanding the deeper arguments, behind the more popular, & simplistic taglines that make their way across the social landscape. So in the most Guy Rant filled episode I've done in ages, we dive into the Misconceptions in Noahpinion's Crypto Misconceptions.

In Episode 119, we're going to answer the five misconceptions and statements that people commonly make about preaching that I want to challenge. You might have heard most of it and I don't believe it's true. Confusions occur when it comes to what preaching really includes and how it should be carried out. If you want to know what preaching is really not, you might start by identifying common misconceptions. Preaching may involve several of the characteristics mentioned in today's episode, but when any of them becomes the strongest factor, you may tell that it has changed course.

The cost of living always attracts controversy, even before the current surge in prices. Many people believe that the true rate of inflation is consistently far higher than the official stats suggest. But is there any evidence to back up these claims? We discuss the nuances of how inflation is calculated and whether the changes made in the 1980s and 1990s have lowered official inflation numbers, as claimed by websites such as ShadowStats. And what impact does it have on investors? And in today's Dumb Question of the Week: Why does the Fed look at Core PCE inflation rather than CPI? Doesn't it care about food and energy prices?

I do not like CBT. Don't worry; I won't break into a salty Dr. Seuss-esque rhyme deriding cognitive behavioral therapy (although I could). But then Charles Small, LCSW, would kindly call me and my objections to CBT in rather than out. I know this because that's how he's handled my grumbling in the past. He's one of those rare souls who can debate without derision, urging folks (like me) to hit pause long enough to trust his professional experience, reconsider the reams of evidence, and assess their (my) personal resistance through a more transparent lens. And you know what? Sometimes* I get it wrong about CBT. Alright! Let's get ready to rumble! But not really. Our conversation isn't a CBT vs. NARM cage match. In fact (and I would only say this to you because we're friends), there are points along the healing trajectory where these two modalities intersect. "Where our actual locus of control is, for the most part, is in our behaviors,” says Charles. This mindfulness component is just one example. Another is CBT's non-judgemental approach. "It's not that there's this moral right or wrong. Instead, if I'm gonna choose the sort of person I wanna be in the world, what do my behaviors have to look like?" *I still hate CBT, though. GUEST BIO Charles Small, LCSW, is a social worker providing therapy for adults at Cognitive Behavioral Associates of Chicago. Prior to private group practice, Charles worked with veterans of the US Armed Services at the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center and the Road Home Program at Rush, where he provided evidence-based psychotherapy for the treatment of PTSD, Military Sexual Trauma, and Moral Injury. Charles is also a lecturer at Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice at the University of Chicago, offering courses on Social Work with Veterans and Evidence-based Therapies for treating PTSD.

Email me → email@example.com Want to read the full show notes of the episode? Check it out below: [00:00:00] Matthew Pollard: The big framing for me is that I learned to succeed as an introvert. And I will tell you that most people think that introversion is a disadvantage when it comes to selling to networking. I actually realize that we have a real edge, as long as we realize that we can't behave extroverted, that we systemize out our disadvantages while leveraging our strengths. And planning and preparation really allow us to leverage our major strengths of active listening and empathy, which something, I'd say, extroverts aren't quite as good as us at. [00:00:41] Sam Wilson: Matthew Pollard is the author of The Introvert's Edge, Amazon's eighth most sold book of the week. Matthew, welcome to the show. [00:00:48] Matthew Pollard: Hey, I'm excited to be here. Thanks for having me on. [00:00:51] Sam Wilson: Hey, man. The pleasure's mine. In 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there? [00:00:56] Matthew Pollard: Oh, in 90 seconds or less? Well, introverted kid, reading speed of a sixth grade, horrible acne, no business being in sales, fell into sales as a result of losing my job just before Christmas. 93 doors before my first sale, it was a horrific day of getting sworn at and getting told to get a real job, went home, taught myself how to sell watching YouTube videos, became the number one salesperson in the company in about six weeks, fast forward just shy of a decade, I had been responsible for five multimillion dollar success stories. And the big framing for me is that I learned to succeed as an introvert. And I will tell you that most people think that introversion is a disadvantage when it comes to selling, to networking. I actually realize that we have a real edge, as long as we realize that we can't behave extroverted, that we systemize out our disadvantages while leveraging our strengths. And planning and preparation really allow us to leverage our major strengths of active listening and empathy, which something, I'd say, extroverts, aren't quite as good as us at. [00:01:54] Matthew Pollard: And that's really, you know, what got me to where I am today. I moved to the US. I started teaching people how to create rapid growth businesses by differentiating, by creating a niche strategy, and by creating a sales system that works, some of those people in the syndication space and, and really that's, what's allowed me to continue my mission of helping introverts realize they're not second class citizens. Their path to success is just different to that of an extrovert. [00:02:18] Sam Wilson: Can you define for me? 'Cause I'm not sure that even everybody has a clear understanding of the difference between an extrovert and an introvert. [00:02:25] Matthew Pollard: You know, it's actually interesting. I, I think that psychologists have been paid a fortune in research grants to make it more complicated, not less so. So the classic introvert you would assume is not either you or ism, you know, the classic introvert would be that person hiding under the bridge. And I, I promise that I would out you as an introvert on this show. So there you go. And this is the biggest thing that I focus on, that most people perceive the introvert as the quiet person that doesn't want to talk to anyone. And what you may be experiencing right now is what you would perceive as perhaps two very articulate people, having a dialogue about a topic that they, you know, if they were true introverts, they wouldn't be able to have. And that's the mistake that everybody makes. Introversion has got nothing to do with your ability to succeed in being a podcast host, being a podcast guest, speaking from a stage, networking, selling, gosh, any other so-called extroverted or any, you think, as a matter of fact, I think that introvert dominate on, you know, all of those, as long as they've got a great system and they do planning and preparation previously. The difference is that after those activities, we're exhausted. Where an extrovert is buzzing, they're charged up and they want to go to the next so-called extroverted behavior. [00:03:36] Matthew Pollard: So the thing that I will say that separates us, and the best example I can give you is I run an event in Austin called Small Business Festival. And you know, Jim Cathcart, number one most award-winning speaker in the world, is a friend of mine. He came down, he's like, Matt, I'm going to be a closing speaker. And I'm coming down for the full three-day period. At the end of that three days, he and I had been involved in the event. We'd hung out with people. We'd interviewed people from stage. We'd both spoken. The difference was at the end, he was charged up and wanted to go and experience rainy street in the city of Austin, the live music capital of the world. I wanted to put on a hoodie and watch Netflix and maybe cry a little bit by myself and talk to nobody. I've never in my life had to ask a 70-year-old if I could please go home, I was tired ever, but that was the time. He was so charged up because he had three days of charge. I had three days of using my charge. That's all introversion is. It's got nothing to do with what we can achieve. [00:04:31] Sam Wilson: Right. No, I appreciate that. Yeah. And that's the definition I was hoping you were going to give 'cause it's absolutely true. I mean, yeah, I'm doing, I run a daily podcast. I'm doing 12 interviews today. And let me tell you when these, this is all I do on Tuesdays, this interview, and when Tuesdays are over, I'm spent. Like I just go, I go home. Like, I, I really don't get any of their work done on Tuesday. It's like, I'm exhausted. I'm just exhausted. And I had a great day, had a great, great time conversing with people like yourself all day long. I get to meet the brightest and best minds in real estate, every Tuesday, all over the country. It's amazing. And it wears me out. That's just, just the way it is. [00:05:06] Matthew Pollard: And you own that. And that's the important thing. I think a lot of people either get embarrassed by that. Now, truthfully, you have a ton of advantages being an introvert and extroverts, I don't want to be perceived as extrovert-bashing, extroverts have a ton of advantages, too. The goal is that you have to understand you have strengths and weaknesses and you have to leverage your strengths while learning how to improve on your weaknesses. The difference is an extrovert will go and learn how to actively listen or they'll go and learn how to empathize better. An introvert believes that they can't, and that's really where the biggest hurdle is. And I will tell you, Sam, I actually batch my interviews, too, for my podcast, The Introvert's Edge. I batch interview over a two-day period the entire series every time I launch one because I don't want to do it again for another long period. [00:05:51] Sam Wilson: That's awesome. I absolutely love it. Let's talk about achieving rapid growth. So I know that's one of the things you're well known for, break down that process for me, if you don't mind. [00:06:02] Matthew Pollard: Yeah, absolutely. And I think the important thing for people to understand when it comes to rapid growth is that most people are amazing at their functional skill, but rapid growth has nothing to do with your functional skills. As a matter of fact, if you explain what you do as a functional skill, then people are less likely to want to work with you. So what I really highlight for people is there's three steps to rapid growth that are outside the scope of your functional skill. If you can nail these three and do them well, then you really can create a rapid growth business that, that you deserve. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to give you an example that's kind of outside your industry, but I want to tell you that I actually applied this to a syndication business. That's a feature in my new book, The Introvert's Edge to Networking, and he was able to obtain rapid growth really, really easily. But the key was, by the way, don't call yourself a syndication specialist. If that's what you are, don't say it to everyone. That's not in syndication. It sounds like a Ponzi scheme, like a scam, like I'm going to give you my money and you're going to run away from it, with it, I should say. Now here's the thing that I will tell you to everyone that knows what it is. It is a really good way of making money and it's a great way of leveraging income, but the truth is the average person outside that, the only way you're going to be able to explain it to them is by educating them, that's like opening your fire hose of information. [00:07:16] Matthew Pollard: So you have to separate yourself from that industry, and you have to leverage the power of story to educate. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to give you an example that does both, I'm going to show you how it applies, then I'll show you how it applies to syndication, but I'm also going to leverage the power of story because especially for those introverts out there, story does a few amazing things. The first thing it does is it activates the reticular activating system of their brain, which for an introvert that struggles to develop rapport, it allows my brain to synchronize with the brains of everybody that's listening. It creates artificial rapport that I can leverage into real rapport, super powerful. And it allows me to foster a relationship with everybody that's listening now. This is really, really powerful as well because people buy from people that they like, but it also is for introverts and for extroverts that feel like they need to educate, it stops us from putting so much jargon into the explanation. So leave your brochures, leave your manuals, and your jargon talk at home. Tell a story instead. The second thing that I will tell you is when you tell a story, people remember up to 22 times more information. So my goal of sharing this story with you is also that you retain it, that you remember it, and you actually apply the advice that I'm about to give you. [00:08:24] Matthew Pollard: And then thirdly, and I think this is the most powerful, it actually short circuits the logical part of your brain. So when you hear a story, your emotional part of the brain is what hears a story. The logical part has no way of processing it. So literally in short circuits your emotional brain, goes story time, and listens. So the difference here is that if you try to give somebody jargon for six seconds until they're bored, you tell someone a story they're going to listen for two or three minutes. And they're only going to listen for whether the moral applies to them, which is even better because they assume all the detail is fact. So because of that, it gives you a huge advantage of everybody else, especially in the investment space where they're just overwhelming. Everybody in the industry just overwhelms people with jargon. [00:09:04] Matthew Pollard: So the example I'll give you is actually of a language tutor that was out of California. And she taught kids and adults Mandarin. And for the longest time, she was able to charge $50 to $80 an hour for a private consultation. Now she did that successfully until there are a whole bunch of people moving into California, willing to charge 30 to $40 an hour for a private consultation. On top of that, we now live in this global economy. There were people in China offering to do it for $12 an hour on Craigslist and technology that says, Hey, I'll charge you nothing. You teach me English. I'll teach you Mandarin. You know, no one charges, anyone anything, so she's competing against free. So she comes to me and she says, how do I compete in this crowded marketplace? What she's looking for is how to sell more effectively. But the key is that if you start with sales, you've already lost. What I said is we've got to avoid the battle altogether. So I looked at all the things she did for her clients outside the scope of her functional skill, and what I realize is for two of these clients, and literally, she'd worked with hundreds, it was just two. She helped them understand some pretty important things. These were executives being relocated to China. Now the first thing she helped them understand was the importance of rapport. Like here, if I was a really bad salesperson, at the end of 45 minutes, I might say, do you want to move forward? [00:10:11] Matthew Pollard: And you'll say, yes, no, or, everyone's favorite, let me think about it. Well, if I come back a week from now and you still say you want to think about it, you're probably not going to go ahead. In China, they're going to want to see you five or six times before they discuss business. They're probably going to want to see you drunk over karaoke once or twice. It's just the kind of people that they are, but that's because they're talking 25 to 100-year relationships, not transactional deals like we do here. She helped them understand the importance of eCommerce or the differences between eCommerce in China and in the Western world and the importance of respect, why learning the language isn't enough. You've got to reduce your accent, how to handle a business card, why it mattered. These are the things that were significant to these two clients. And I said when you doing so much more for these people than just language tuition, what are you doing? Now in syndication, everyone has their own unique skills, their own things that they bring to the marketplace that they struggle to articulate. Otherwise, you won't have clients that keep coming back to you. And she said, look, there's just a few things I'm just trying to help, but I'm like, you're stuck in your functional skill. Is it fair to assume as a result of the assistance that you are giving these people, they're going to be more successful in China? And she's like, I mean, yeah. I mean, that's the point, right? I said, great. Let's call you the China Success coach then. Forget about Mandarin for a second. Let's focus on creating what we ended up calling the China Success Intensive, which was a five-week program to work with the executive, the spouse, and any children being relocated to China. [00:11:30] Matthew Pollard: Now she loved the idea of this, but she's like, well, who do I sell it to? And I said, well, who do you think your ideal client is? What she's asking is who do I go out networking to find, right? Now everyone assumes the biggest group. So I said, well, who do you think you're supposed to sell this to? And she said, well, obviously the executive. I'm like, yeah. I mean, I was terrified of moving from Australia to the US. Imagine going to China where they speak a different language. Still, not your ideal client though. She's like, well, the companies are going to pay. I'm like, yeah, they got millions of dollars writing on an executive being successful, fair assessment. Still, I don't think so. Frustrated, she's like, well, who then? I said I think you're right. Your client's the immigration attorney. She looked at me puzzled. She's like what? I said, what do you think about this for a second? An immigration attorney gets paid five to $7,000 for doing a visa, doing all the paperwork and bureaucracy that comes with it. They've got staff, they've got office space, they've got a pay to get a client. They'd be lucky to make $3,000. I said, so just offer them $3,000 for a simple introduction. They were like double my profit for a simple introduction, sure. What have I got to say? These people are ecstatic to meet her at a networking event. [00:12:30] Matthew Pollard: She said, well, all you've got to do is say, congratulations, you've now got a visa. I just want to double check you're as ready as possible to be relocated to China. These people, pretty confident, they'd say, yeah, I think we're set. You know, we've got our place sorted. We are learning the language. Kids are getting pretty good at it too. We've got our visa now. Thank you. I think we are good to go and they just respond with, there's actually a lot more to it than that. I think you need to speak to the China Success coach. She then got on the phone with the easiest sale in the world. Now put this in perspective. She charged $30,000 for doing this. She paid a $3,000 commission for this five-week program. She made $27,000 for the easiest sale in the world instead of struggling every day to charge $50 to $80 an hour, she had a business that exploded. Now, how do you apply this to this syndication space? Simple. You first need to decide the niche for you. [00:13:18] Matthew Pollard: I worked with a client recently who specialized or had a lot of clients in the medical space, surgeons, people that were, you know, highly specialized doctors. Just, so you know, you're supposed to feel sorry for these people because they spent a fortune learning. Then they get into their career and they put themselves in golden handcuffs. They've got expensive lives, expensive spouses. Their kids are going to expensive schools. They have no idea how they're ever going to retire. The thing they do have is a huge income, but they invest it in things like condos and triplexes. The problem is that, usually, they end up the landlord and the hourly rate's horrible and the properties, 'cause they've got less time to look than everyone else, they usually lose money, not make money. So they give up on all that. That was the group that he cared about though. He sold it to everyone. I said, specialize here. Then we can frame the messaging differently. We actually called him The Arbitrage Architect. Why? Well, arbitrage means buy low and sell high. Well, if you can buy things low in a way that nobody else can if you've got a high income that allows you or affords you the opportunity to be involved in a syndication, a much smaller group, so it's more manageable and more profitable. Well, of course, you're basically making money out of arbitrage. So we created the unified message of The Arbitrage Architect. We then niche down to doctors and surgeons, and then we created a sales system that leveraged the power of relationships through other surgeons and messaging out to surgeons and doctors. That's what created his rapid growth business. Funnily enough, as soon as he started doing it, while the people that knew him were like, what are you doing? You're a syndication specialist, just stick to that. Even his father-in-law thought he was insane. He actually had a doctor's association in Canada, reach out to me like, you know what? We need someone to speak to our doctors. Can you work with us and help us with that? And he had a dream set of clients. Now he has no problem raising money and all the choice deals get given to him first because they know who he is. He breaks through the noise. So if you focus on these steps, firstly sales, step three, is a lot easier, but gosh, you stop feeling like you're having to convince and cajole people to do what's in their best interest. [00:15:28] Sam Wilson: Yeah, I like that. That's absolutely right. And I, I think you started with something there at the beginning was to leverage the story. You know, like any good brand leverages the story. I don't know if you've ever, ever done a whiskey tour, right? I remember I was on the bourbon trail in Kentucky and, and it's like, in the end, it's the same, almost the same, you know, same product, you know? Okay. All the, all the bourbon drinkers, like, no, it's not, I'm going to get a bunch of hate email, but, but seriously, in the end, they've always got some founding story and it's, I mean, the whole thing is about the story and how special the water is and how special the grains and what, it's like, okay. [00:16:02] Matthew Pollard: Oh, I'm with you. I mean, how many times have we gone to a winery and actually had pretty bad wine, but then we bought a bottle because the story was so great. You felt connected to this bottle of wine. It was nowhere near as good as a bottle half the price from California that we could have got it home. [00:16:17] Sam Wilson: Right. Exactly. Exactly. You're like, gosh, is this a $6 bottle or a $2? I don't have any idea. This is not good though. I know that. Yeah. That's exactly it. And that's why I never need to go on a whiskey tasting tour ever again. It's like, this is, I've heard the story. Thank you. But still, even though, even, so I liked really what you said there of leverage the story. What are some things that people should do, I guess, to begin, you know, finding their unique story? Like for you, I think it sounded like it came from the experience of identifying yourself as an introvert, going, okay, you know what, I'm an introvert and this, this does not come naturally or easy for me. And I think you built upon that. What can other people do to really find their way of leveraging their story? [00:16:57] Matthew Pollard: Yeah, absolutely. So I think what we need to do is you need to say what are the skills that I have outside the scope of my functional skill and then say, well, what is the higher level benefit of that. So for Wendy, it was eCommerce, understanding of respect, understanding of rapport. The high-level benefit was China Success. For Shane, who became The Arbitrage Architect, it was the fact that he understood what doctors were going through, how to find deals, how to raise the money, how to connect with those right people. And then, you know, The Arbitrage Architect became the perfect fit for him because he understood what they were going through. He understood that while wealthy, they were actually stuck in golden handcuffs and they were trying to invest. It's funny, we came up with this slogan, stop investing like a poor person, right? Because the whole framing was around a super rich, egocentric kind of individuals that knew that they should be able to get access to something that everyone else did and they just couldn't find it. So it was a really easy fit. [00:17:50] Matthew Pollard: For me, I went, well, hang on a second. you know, I learned to sell as an introvert, yes. But then I started my own business and I realized that if you start with sales, you've already lost. So I actually learned to market, by the way, salespeople tend to be undergrad qualified people or people that aren't seen as highly qualified. Marketers on the other hand are highly qualified but have never had a relationship with a customer. They don't really go and speak to customers. So salespeople tend to hate marketers and marketers tend to devalue what's going on in the sales team. I actually was able to play in both spheres. Because of that, I actually had the ability to communicate between. So most people that are in small businesses, they generally have to hire a sales coach, then they have to hire a marketing specialist, and neither of them are actually connecting the dots for the other. Then the world went online. So I went, well, I understand sales and marketing offline. That's how I grew my business. And then I moved them online. And more specifically, I learned to move them online and realized that while everybody else was blogging every day, podcasting every day, taking photos of their donut for something to say on Instagram, because their focus was to be the loudest, I realized that if you were the clearest, i.e. had a great message, you didn't need to be the loudest you could optimize and even automate to break through the noise, i.e. in networking and online, if you can be the clearest, you don't have to be the loudest. [00:19:07] Matthew Pollard: By bringing all of this together, online and offline marketing and sales, and the psychology because truthfully, look, I've learned you can create a rapid growth business out of anything. I built five multimillion-dollar businesses myself from the ground up. And the thing I can tell you is there's nothing worse than a rapid growth business with customers you can't stand, the business, you don't like. So it's ensuring that you actually create the right rapid growth business as opposed, and trust me, you'll make more money if you focus on a business you're actually passionate about, too. Now, most people in this syndication space are so focused on the money, but there is a passion behind it. They just are so logical and so practical-minded or so focused on making money, they don't take time to think about it and learn how to articulate it. My realization that no one else does this stuff, made me realize that what my higher level benefit was was, yes, I was passionate about helping introverts, passionate about helping service provider businesses, more specifically than all businesses in general. And what I realized is I had a unique competency, which was twofold. One was that I had the ability to help a business create rapid growth, but also had the ability for a business owner, to help a business owner obtain rapid growth in their mindset, their focus, the business that they were going to create. So they actually created the business, the rapid growth business that they love as opposed to the rapid growth business that pays really well, but makes them suicidal. So I called myself the Rapid Growth Guy because it encapsulated that. [00:20:31] Matthew Pollard: By the way, the first time I told a friend unified message is the last thing you should tell somebody else. It's like walking up to someone and saying, Hey Sam, I know you've called me, Matthew, my whole life. Now, when I want you to call me Tom. It just feels weird. Like, the first time I said to someone called me the Rapid Growth Guy, it was a friend of mine that was a sales trainer. And by the way, you don't want to call yourself a commodity, right? When I called myself a sales trainer, people looked at me like I was one step above a scam artist. When I called myself a marketer, they go, oh, I need that. How much do you cost? Now I'm talking about price. But when I said to a friend, I called myself the Rapid Growth Guy now, he looked at me and he's like, Matt, what are you doing? I mean, you sound like a male enhancement drug and not a good one, right? So for me, it was about making sure that I shared it with new people. [00:21:12] Matthew Pollard: Shane, the first time he called himself, The Arbitrage Architect, his father-in-law was like, oh my gosh, I think you've hit your head, right? But now he's got a rapid growth business. So the advice I would give you is look at the skill sets. Every single person, yes, you do syndication or you do property, that everyone has unique experiences, unique past customers, unique qualifications, unique passions, and missions that perfectly qualify them to help a demographic, and that provide them unique skills in order to help them with. But here's what I'll say. You don't need to hire me to figure it out. I actually have a five-step template that I give away. You can go to matthewpollard.com/growth, and there you can download the template and it literally walks you through the steps of creating your own unified message and discovering your own niche, willing-to-buy clients. [00:21:54] Matthew Pollard: It's funny. I did this at the National Freelance Conference, and this sounds amazing until I tell you the second part. At the end of the 45-minute session, I said, who here now has a unified message they believe will excite and inspire a prospect to want to know more. So when they introduce themselves at a networking event, people don't look at you like you're a scammer or say, oh, I need that. How much do you cost? But actually just intrigued to want to know more. But also they've identified a niche of people that are willing to pay themselves, pay them what they're worth. And like 97% of the room put their hands up. And as I said, sounds great until I tell you this. I said people keep your hands up. If this is the most time you spent actively working on your marketing since you started your business. Now, the keyword is actively. You might have read some marketing books, read them, and then read the next book. I mean, these people that read a hundred books a year and apply none drive me crazy. So the thing that I will tell you is that these people, 85% of the room kept their hands up, that this is the most time they've spent actively working on their marketing since they started their business. So the key thing is this template works if you spend the time doing it. [00:22:57] Matthew Pollard: And what I would suggest to people that are listening is team up with somebody that's not in the syndication space at all. Find a hairdresser friend, a florist friend, a lawyer friend, somebody that is not your ideal customer, but also not somebody that works in your industry 'cause they'll get you out of your industry jargon and you won't be selling to them in the process, right? But focus with somebody and spend, maybe get them to listen to this podcast. I'm sure Sam would appreciate you getting them to listen to this podcast anyway, but get them to listen to this podcast and then download the template and spend an hour and a half on them and then get them to spend an hour and a half on you. And you'll easily come up with a niche that makes sense because they'll hold you accountable to realizing that if you speak to far less people, you become the only logical choice as opposed to having more opportunity where nobody really takes you seriously or wants to work with you. So they will force you to make a decision and then you'll be able to work through what the high-level benefit of that is. And the template will take you through all of that. So go and download the template at matthewpollard.com/growth. And that'll really take you through every step you need to create the message and find the niche. [00:24:04] Sam Wilson: Matthew, thank you for taking the time to come on today. This has certainly been informative and insightful, have really appreciated everything you've shared with us. My last question is typically, how do we get in touch with you? But it sounds like you've just showed us matthewpollard.com. Thank you again for coming on. Is there anything else you'd like to share the listeners before we sign off? [00:24:22] Matthew Pollard: Yeah, absolutely. For the introverts that are listening, you don't need to buy my book either to learn how to sell or network as an introvert. You know, I'm really conscious of trying to make sure that introverts get over that belief that they can actually sell or network. So you can actually download the first chapters of my book at theintrovertsedge.com. You can get the sales book there in theintrovertsedge.com/networking. And that'll get you the first chapters, the sales book, for instance, I actually will help you overcome your belief. You can sell and give you the full seven steps. If you do nothing more than what you currently say into those seven steps, you'll realize there's some things out of order, you can fix that. There's some things that don't fit. That'll be all the jargon that you tell the client, you should throw that out. And then you'll realize that there's some gaping holes like asking great questions and telling great stories. If you just do that, you'll double your sales in the next 60 days. So whichever you want to focus on networking or sales, there's a book for you. [00:25:10] Sam Wilson: Fantastic. Matthew, thank you so much. Appreciate it. Have a great rest of your day. [00:25:13] Matthew Pollard: My pleasure, cheers.

Money manifestation culture is at an all-time high, and that's a dangerous thing. Why? Because it's not built around an actionable mindset - it's predatory. Simply WISHING to be rich isn't the same thing as having a healthy relationship with money. You can't “magically” make more money appear and it's a harmful narrative that plays on our vulnerabilities. I especially dislike how “manifestation” can get lumped in with the money mindset - but the latter involves both belief and work.These misconceptions can be dangerous because they're so tantalizing, and because we have so many misleading stories telling us that we essentially just need to wish hard enough. Helping entrepreneurs achieve true success is so important to me, so this type of snake oil can be detrimental. Instead, I advocate for money mindset and money management. Yes, you have to have a belief but that's really just Step One. In fact, it's literally the first step in my Five-Step Cash Confident plan.In this week's episode, I compare and contrast the dangers of manifestation culture and the strategy of money mindset. I share my own journey with money mindset issues and how I overcame them. Because it's not just having a mindset for money - once you get it, you need to learn how to manage it or, just as quickly as it came, it'll be gone again.This week's episode dismantles lies around mindset vs. manifestation and goes over the tools to not only bring in wealth but keep it around. Listen along and be sure to download my Five-Step Cash Confident framework so you can get on the road to a successful money mindset AND management.You'll Learn:The dangers around predatory manifestationTruths about money mindsetThe difference between money mindset and manifestation and how to put the former into actionWhy money management is the secret to wealthLinks:She Means Profit Blog: http://shemeansprofit.com/5-Step Roadmap to a Profitable Biz: https://melissahoustoncpa.lpages.co/5-step-biz-finance-roadmapWork with me: https://shemeansprofit.com/offers/Want more tips and inspiration?Follow me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, LinkedIn and Tiktok @melissahoustoncpaand visit my website: https://www.melissahoustoncpa.com

In today's episode, we will have an in-depth discussion about the misconception of faith. A mistaken thought, idea, or notion; a misunderstanding. Erroneous conception; false opinion; misunderstanding. Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Heavenly Father, you are ELOHIM, the All-Powerful one creator; you are EL ROI, the God who sees us and sees our challenges. Therefore, Lord God, we come before you in total surrender and with open hearts so that the truth may penetrate deep into our souls and spirits. I pray the words that you minister through me can penetrate all the lies and deceptions of the enemy, and the truth shall reign supreme in the hearts and minds of your people. In Jesus' name, Amen! The Bible says that without faith, it is impossible to please God. (Heb. 11:6) Yet, this is the most challenging task for most Christian today. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/shirley-p/support

He went undefeated in 21 straight races for an incredible two-year winning streak. He has been inducted into the Hall of Fame for IRONMAN, USA Triathlon, and the International Triathlon Union. Allen has coached for 28 years and is now a coach on the TriDot platform. Best Questions and Answer from Thursday, July 28th from 8-9pm CT: Question: Why did you choose TriDot? Answer: Paving the way for how this industry is going to change. This is the future of triathlon training. It's reached a point where there's too much data for a coach to evaluate and adjust training fast enough. Been watching this trend for many years. "This is what I've been looking for and I didn't know it existed." Question: Besides nutrition, what is the diff between training for 70.3 and 140.6? Do you recommend 70.3 first? Answer: Experience is helpful to learn pacing and begin to understand nutrition. Misconception that the training is double. Fitness to do a 70.3 is 2/3 to 3/4s of what you need for an Ironman. Those long rides and runs get you the remaining training. You pace your race to give it everything you have for the distance. An Ironman feels a little bit longer than a 70.3. Question: What is the most important skill to master as an athlete? Coach? Answer: Pacing yourself. Follow the training, be consistent and make it a lifestyle. As a coach, respond to an athlete when they have a need. If it takes two weeks to get back to an athlete. I try to be very responsive. TriDot allows me to see what I do very efficiently. "Using this technology is a lot like using an MRI to diagnose an ailment vs a stethoscope." Question: Key to a fast marathon? Answer: Have pace yourself on the swim and the bike. Manage yourself, pace yourself and nutrition. Get extra fitness on the bike. Get out of the water fresh. Over distance in the swim and over distance on the bike. Marathon focus on preparing for what you can take in for nutrition. Do the brick workouts with the 20-40 minutes for running. Question: What is the mental strategy when you want to skip a workout? Advice to keep attacking it and getting better? Answer: It's important to identify the key workouts each week. It's more important to balance the sport with the rest of your life. You don't want to lose all the other things that are important to save 3 minutes on the bike. If you find those key workouts, they will give you 80-90% of what you need. The other workouts will help, but they only get you the remaining 10-20%. If getting all your workouts in causes stress in other parts of your life, that's not the goal. If you are feeling like not training, you need to ask yourself if you are recovered enough. Listen to your body. There's no device or metric that can replace how you feel. I like to get out the door and if after 10 minutes you feel like you're full of lactate or feeling lethargic, then turn around and go back home. Question: What are some of your mental strategies during tough spots in IRONMAN? Answer: How you deal with it starts long before the race. There will things that will come up that you couldn't have expected. You don't need a perfect race to race perfectly. If your goggles get kicked off, put them back on. You drop a water bottle. Shake it off and get an extra the next time. When you get to the whining phase, I have to change the channel. Get to a mental state where you take a big breath, stop the voice in my head, and analyze what's going on. Maybe I can walk a bit and be steady quiet and engaged. What ever my potential attention and energy I can bring, bring 100% of that. What's my purpose? Do I drop out? My body is working at 20% capacity. If I can give 100% of the 20%, I'll do that. You will be proud of the peace, purpose and quiet and strength to finish. Question: What is your inner dialogue when you are racing? Do you have a phrase or mantra? Answer: You should have the positive affirmation. Early in my career I tried that. When you do fall apart, I was never able to remember the mantras. I'm not light as a feather on the marathon, I feel like an elephant. The most powerful place to race from is a quiet mind. In a way you tune everything out but yourself and your process and engaged in the moment and not judging. Try to lock in and give everything I have. There's a magical switch point where all of a sudden you realize you are giving everything I have that day. Question: How do the principals in your book show up in your coaching? Answer: Fit Soul / Fit Body. Each of those elements got me from trying to win to winning IRONMAN. Quiet the mind Key. What is your Quest? Why does this have important for you? Is it part of the fulfillment of being a part of a community? Live what you asked for? What does it take to win the IRONMAN? Follow what TriDot is telling you to do. Go hard when you need and easy when you need. Taught me how to be fulfilled even when I have bad days of training and racing. Nothing is inherently good or bad, it's just how you react to it. Phil Liggett looks like Mark Allen is a matching. I was just steady and controlled. Question: Tips for older athletes and taking days off. Answer: I'm 64 and I don't take days off. You need to be tuned into your body and take a day off and recover and regenerate. You need to eat a little more good quality protein to stimulate the body to rebuild. Strength training is also key. It can be body weights and cords. If you just swim, bike and run. 20 year study on Boston Marathoners. 1 group just run. 2nd group that did strength and running kept all their muscle mass. Sleep and recovery. Protein and strength training. Question: What advice do you have for amateurs for longevity in the sport. Answer: Be consistent. Be steady with your training and recovery. You can only absorb so much stress. If you overdo it you will become stressed and overtrained. This sport should bring fulfillment and happiness. Question: If I go into my anaerobic zone during my aerobic, will I burn carbohydrate the rest of the workout. Answer: Depends on how long and how fit. When you aerobic, your ancient genetics detects danger and the adrenal system starts and turns off fat burning and continues to burn carbohydrate. It's a survival adaptation. You go into high stress physiology. It's not a faucet you turn on and off. It's more like a river that continues to flow for several hours. That's why people bonk. Question: What's the best marker for choosing to go pro? Answer: What do you think your potential is? If you feel like your just getting going, go for it. If you're just barely there and you think your at your potential. Question: What hydration / nutrition to avoid cramps? Answer: Different cramps have different reasons. Early in the swim your feet cramp - typically when you are under high stress. Your body excretes sodium and magnesium when under stress and your adrenal system kicks in. Okay to have a little anxiety. As best as you can load up on sodium and magnesium. You need to keep on top of magnesium all year. If late in the race the quads cramp, it's because you are putting more load on the quads during the race. Do strength work so you have extra muscle to utilize. Calf cramps come from being under stress for a long time. When your adrenal system gets depleted you get calf cramps. Side stitches come from fast shallow breathing. Slow down the breathing and take deeper breathing. Otherwise rub your knuckles on the sternum. Question: What gets you most jazzed about the future of the sport? Answer: Seeing this whole new generation of pros and redefining what is possible. We've had several generations. You can tell some of these great athletes like Daniel and Alistair are on the way out. The way these new athletes like Kristian Blummenfelt and the Sam Longs and Laura Phillips are a new generation that want to race the top folks. Not like it used to be were the new pros were scared cats. Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance. Buddy Insurance gives you peace of mind to enjoy your training and racing to the fullest.

Endurance News: PTO Canadian Open 2022 results: Ashleigh Gentle runs to glory Australia's Ashleigh Gentle claimed a superb victory in the inaugural PTO Canadian Open in Edmonton on Saturday. When Gentle exited the three-lap swim just 24 seconds back on Vittoria Lopes, one of the best triathlon swimmers in the world, it was perhaps a sign of things to come. It was a dream start and it set up a memorable day for Ashleigh. A well-paced bike ride followed, and the addition of a killer run resulted in $100k first prize courtesy of a comprehensive victory in the debut event of the 2022 PTO Tour. With a wedding coming up, it was quite timely! Gentle delivered in some style. Swim – Lopes leads the way Brazilian short-course specialist and middle distance debutant Lopes, said goodbye to the rest of the field inside the first few minutes of the three-lap, 2km swim at Hawrelak Park. With the field including Lauren Brandon (USA) and Sara Perez Sala (ESP), among the top-ranked swimmers from the PTO's number-crunching, that was an impressive start. Given that she exited the swim at Tokyo 2020 on the feet of Jess Learmonth in a very select group at the Olympic Games, perhaps not surprising – but still very impressive. Brandon and Perez Sala were in the small chase group along with Julie Derron (SUI) and Gentle. That represented a fantastic start for the Australian, who had been a minute down on Perez Sala in the opening discipline (over a shorter distance), at CLASH Miami. If she could maintain that to the swim exit in Edmonton, a great start to her day. Lopes did lead into T1, but Brandon was only 12 seconds back after a strong third loop, with Derron, Perez Sala and Gentle a further 10 seconds down. Unfortunately for Lopes, going the wrong side of one of the swim buoys would cost her a 30-second penalty later in the race. Among the pre-race favourites chasing were Holly Lawrence (GBR), Paula Findlay (CAN), Ellie Salthouse (AUS) and Nicola Spirig (SUI) – all around 1:10 down, but not the best start for Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR) or Laura Philipp (GER) in relative terms. The Brit was 3:35 down, with Laura a few seconds further back. The German had four athletes behind her, and 27 ahead… time to go to work. Bike – fast Findlay takes control The bike course in Edmonton comprised of four laps of 20km. As the race started to take shape going into lap two, Lopes – on her standard WTCS road bike – was still holding strong at the front but home favourite Findlay was now only 10 seconds back in second place, having made up 1:15 on the bike. Gentle, Salthouse, Spirig (road bike, of course!) and Derron followed, just over 30 seconds down. India Lee was seemingly having a great day (9th at this stage, +1:46) and riding just in front of Lawrence. Philipp had moved up to 16th (+2:57) and was riding quicker then everyone except Findlay. Pallant-Browne's day looked as though it was all but over however. From riding with Philipp, she dropped from the timings suddenly, with news subsequently confirmed that she had suffered a front wheel flat. Very frustrating, and with $1million on the line and the last chance to display Collins Cup form, potentially very costly too. The end of lap two represented the halfway mark of the ride, by which point Findlay's charge had seen her take the lead and continue to set the fastest splits on two wheels. Findlay crossed the 40km time split with an advantage of just over a minute on a quartet of Gentle, Salthouse, Spirig and Lopes. Jocelyn McCauley was sixth, 2:08 back. Philipp was now in seventh, 2:40 back and continuing to gain ground. Another lap on and the Findlay lead had grown to 1:34, with the chasing quartet of Gentle, Salthouse, Spirig and Lopes together. McCauley was still having a great race, 2:16 back in sixth, with Philipp holding pace to Findlay, but still 2:42 back in seventh. She would be hoping to reduce that a touch ahead of the upcoming 18km run. Completing the top 10 at the 60km mark on the bike were Skye Moench (USA), Jacqui Hering (USA) and Lawrence (GBR), four minutes behind the hometown leader. McCauley's progress continued through the final lap, which saw Findlay start the 18km run with a significant lead. Following on the four-lap course were Gentle (+2:04), Salthouse (+2:14), McCauley (+2:19), Philipp (+2:32) and Spirig (+2:42). After taking that penalty incurred in the swim, Lopes started the run in seventh (+3:32). Run – Gentle takes control Gentle looked brilliant from the start of the run and immediately started gaining on the 2020 PTO Champion Findlay, reducing a 2:04 deficit to 1:35 within the first 2.5km. Philipp had moved into third and was also gaining on Paula – but most significantly she was losing time to Gentle, the 2018 ITU Grand Final winner. At the end of lap one of four, Findlay's lead was down to just one minute over a flowing Gentle, but Philipp's charge from 28th exiting the water was perhaps coming to a stall. Still in third, she remained 2:30 back and was matching, but not catching, the pace of Paula. Unless anything changed, this was all pointing towards an Australian winner. The inevitable pass came around the 7.5km mark, and by the midpoint of the run (9km), she was already 23 seconds up, with Philipp now three minutes back in third. Making rapid progress and now up to fourth was Chelsea Sodaro, who had finished a distant second to Philipp at IRONMAN Hamburg. The tables looked set to be turned here, unless the German could raise her pace over the closing kilometres. Ashleigh Gentle PTO Canadian Open 2022 finish Photo by Darren Wheeler (www.thatcameraman.com) While she didn't get the win, a very happy Findlay held strong for second place and a $70k pay cheque. The battle to complete the podium went to the final few hundred metres, when Sodaro hit the afterburners and left Philipp unable to respond. PTO Canadian Open 2022 Results – Pro Women Saturday July 23, 2022 – 2km / 80km / 18km – Edmonton Ashleigh Gentle (AUS) – 3:30:54 Paula Findlay (CAN) – 3:33:16 Chelsea Sodaro (USA) – 3:34:56 Laura Philipp (GER) – 3:35:10 Julie Derron (SUI) – 3:36:18 Holly Lawrence (GBR) – 3:37:43 Vittoria Lopes (BRA) – 3:38:14 Ellie Salthouse (AUS) – 3:38:34 Sophie Watts (USA) – 3:39:28 Nicola Spirig (SUI) – 3:39:50 India Lee (GBR) – 3:45:04 Nikki Bartlett (GBR) – 3:46:15 Laura Siddall (GBR) – 3:49:06 DNF.

Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR) PTO Canadian Open 2022 results: Gustav Iden tops Blummenfelt There was plenty of action on the run at the first ever PTO Canadian Open on Sunday, but when the dust settled, it was Team Norway topping the podium once again. Gustav Iden took the spoils of victory (including a $100k cheque for first prize) as he came home in front of compatriot Kristian Blummenfelt. That though tells just a tiny part of the story on what was an incident-packed day in North America. Swim – Schoeman sets the pace When we previewed the Pro Men's race in Edmonton, one of the factors we mentioned was the quality of swimmers in the field and the likelihood that the pace would be on from the start. That, not surprisingly, proved to be the case and we saw an elite group of six break clear, headed out of the water by Henri Schoeman (RSA). Separated by just 17 seconds, Schoeman was joined by Aaron Royle (AUS), Alistair Brownlee (GBR), Sam Laidlow (FRA), Ben Kanute (USA) and Kyle Smith (NZL). Plenty of biking legs there too. The chasers were led by Olympic, World Triathlon and IRONMAN World Champion, Blummenfelt (NOR), who was 1:16 back on the pace-setting Commonwealth Games gold medallist. The Blummenfelt ‘group' was significant, and included the likes of Miki Taagholt (DEN), Frederic Funk (GER) and Iden (NOR). All told there were 23 athletes within two minutes of the leader after the opening three-lap, 2km swim in Hawrelak Park, but as expected, Lionel Sanders (CAN) was not one of them. ‘No Limits' was 34th of 37 in the water, 3:48 down. The slowest T1 of the entire race, by some margin, was hardly helping his cause, and he would start the bike in 35th. Bike – Brownlee and Laidlow break clear 20km down – the end of lap one of four – and Laidlow and Brownlee had gained a small advantage, 21 seconds up on Smith and Royle. They in turn were now 10 seconds clear of Kanute and Schoeman. The Blummenfelt/Iden/Taagholt/Funk and co. chase group started lap two 1:44 back. Sanders had Sebastian Kienle (GER) for company, but will still four minutes behind Brownlee and Laidlow at the front, but now up to 26th. Brownlee and Laidlow continued to work well at the front, swapping the lead and both clearly fully focussed on optimising the bike section. 40km in and they were now 47 seconds up on Smith who was now riding solo. Royle, Schoeman and Kanute had now been swept up by the Norwegian express, who has slightly reduced their deficit to 1:32. The pressure was on though, and that group was now down to just seven. Sanders was losing nothing – but while now up to 20th and still more than four minutes back, he was gaining nothing in time terms either. The second half of the ride didn't see too much change in terms of the shape of the race. A few seconds here and there, but when the T2 dismount line arrived, it was still Brownlee and Laidlow leading the way. Alistair's dismount however was pretty poor – clearly crossing the line. The chase group was 1:07 back comprising of Iden, Funk, Blummenfelt, Smith, Royle, Taagholt, Pieter Heemeryck (BEL) covering 3rd-9th in close order. Sanders completed the top-10 (alongside Andrew Starykowicz) at this point and has gained back some time. He was 3:19 back as he headed towards his bike rack. Run – Gustav holds on as Kristian battles back A late entry to the event, Brownlee had said pre-race that the run was where he was likely to struggle, courtesy of a lack of enough running miles, and he certainly didn't look too good over the opening mile as Laidlow took the lead. Ominously, Iden and Blummenfelt were now practically stride-for-stride and less than a minute back. They also looked, well, like they usually do – brilliant. Clearly in pain, Alistair was soon struggling big time, dropping back through the field and seemingly in danger of a DNF. In Brownlee terms, he was in hobble mode and it was painful to watch, from an athlete who has been one of the greatest we've ever seen. Laidlow started the second lap of four with a 16 second lead, but his chances of maintaining that spot for another 4.5km were basically zero, with the way that Iden and Blummenfelt were flying… and then suddenly Blummenfelt came to an abrupt halt with an apparent hip flexor / quad injury / cramp. Brownlee broken, Blummenfelt hobbling and just as Iden moved into the lead, Laidlow pretty much came to a stop too with cramps. Carnage all over the course – and all within about 10 minutes. Unexpected excitement and lots of things to be considered for each athlete, considering future season plans and avoiding long-term damage. With his biggest potential challengers falling away, Iden was now in prime position. At the midway point of the run, his lead was a minute and a half over Blummenfelt, who had seemingly had his own Terminator moment, regenerated, and was looking (very) good again. Remarkable – but given his last 18 months, why expect anything different? Aaron Royle was continuing to have a great day, holding third place (+1:48), followed by Laidlow, Heemeryck, Funk and Taagholt. Sanders (+3:44), Smith (+3:45) and Collin Chartier (+4:55) rounded out the top ten with 9km of running remaining. With one 4.5km lap remaining, Gustav continued to lead – but Big Blu was not giving up, bouncing back, gaining time and just 56 seconds in arrears. Surely even he couldn't take this victory? At the final turnaround – 2.25km to go – Blummenfelt had cut that 56 seconds to 43 seconds. Exciting racing certainly, but the odds were definitely in favour of the reigning and two-time IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion. So it proved, and despite the best efforts of his training partner, the legend of the lucky hat remained intact as Gustav Iden took victory at the PTO Canadian Open by just 27 seconds. Royle capped a fantastic all round performance to complete the podium, ahead of an impressive Laidlow who, like Blummenfelt, bounced back from his mid-race issues for a superb fourth position. Not the day he wanted, but if you'd told me at 3km that Brownlee would even finish the race, I'd have said you are mad. Kudos to the twice Olympic champion for showing his grit to complete the race.

Prior to the Spanish conquest this tribe managed to establish a rich history in culture, art, and architecture, yet history has been most unkind to their legacy, so what is the truth about these amazing folks? Tonight we discuss the Aztecs, their way of life, their legacy and set the record straight on some of the myths surrounding them. Joining us is the brilliant Dr. Camilla Townsend author of The Fifth Sun (winner of the 2020 Cundill History Prize), Annals of Native America: How the Nahuas of Colonial Mexico Kept Their History Alive, and Pocahontas and the Powhatan Dilemma to name a few. she is a historian and professor of history at Rutgers university So kick back, enjoy and please rate and share the show..let's keep the audience growing.

We are back from our brief hiatus, and in this episode, we welcome writer and academic Crystal O'Leary Davidson! Make sure to check out her short fiction. In Donna Tartt's The Secret History Richard Papen recounts his ill-fated time at Hampden College in Vermont. A second-year transfer from California, Richard, middle class and awkward amongst his privileged peers, becomes fascinated with a group of students studying under the mysterious Julian Morrow, a Professor of Classics. At first, Richard is denied entry into Julian's Classics curriculum. Julian is extremely selective. But after Richard has a serendipitous encounter with the group translating in the library, Julian allows Richard to join his classes. Richard's fellow students, the twins, Camilla and Charles Macaulay, Francis Abernathy, Edmund “Bunny” Corcoran, and the brilliant Henry Winter, have formed an insular group that further constricts when four of them take their studies too far. The fall-out from this accident leads to the murder of Bunny Corcoran. This isn't a spoiler. Richard reveals the murder and the murderers at the beginning of the novel. What follows is an exploration of why Bunny was killed and how evil begets evil, until all is infected and ruined. As Richard tells us in the prologue's conclusion: “I suppose at one time in my life I might have had any number of stories, but now there is no other. This is the only story I will ever be able to tell.” Recommended in this episode: comfort Star Wars watches and Catriona Ward novels (also discussed: The Once Upon A Time At Bennington podcast) UP NEXT: Carmen Maria Machado's The Low Low Woods Please rate and review us, or better yet, tell a friend.

Renae and Crystal are happy to be back in the studio for a brand new episode on the Missy Bevers case. Tune in as we discuss how we frequently hear from people that Randy, Missy's father-in-law, must have killed Missy. We break it down line by line to explain how impossible it is for him to have committed this crime. We also discuss another theory: the “untargeted” theory. TCB has new advertising coming out for Missy's case in the near future. Lastly, an individual contacted us a tip, but will they turn it in to authorities?
