We're Amy and Nancy Harrington and today we're talking with Lisa Thompson, a mountaineer, cancer survivor and sought-after speaker and coach. Lisa worked for 25 years as an engineer and in leadership roles at technology companies. In 2008, she began climbing and has summited most of the most challenging mountains in the world, including Mount Everest and K2. She's completed the seven summits reaching the top of the highest peak of each of the seven continents. Through her company, Alpine Athletics and other platforms. Lisa shares her message of strength and resilience with corporate and private groups worldwide. She is also the author of “Finding Elevation,” which chronicles Thompson's path from novice climber to world class mountain. So please welcome to the show. Lisa Thompson. Lisa: Great to be here. Thanks for having me today. Passionistas: We're really excited to have you here and hear your story. And, uh, we always like to start with the question. What's the one thing you're most passionate about? Lisa: Right now, I think this has changed over the years. I'm sure that's just the normal progression of a life, but right now I am most passionate about giving back to. Women in the communities that I love communities in Nepal and in Pakistan where I've, you know, really feel at home in the mountains and have spent a lot of time and have great memories there. And it's important to me to give back to those communities, especially the women. I recently started a nonprofit to support women in Nepal and specifically to support their education. It was shocking to me to learn that something like 58% of women in Nepal over the age of 15 have had. Zero education, none at all, which is just, you know, alarming on many levels. But in one regard, they're really the center of a Nepalese family and community. And the fact that there's been no formal education for so many of those women just felt like something that was, that I wanted to impact in a positive way. Passionistas: Where did you grow up and what was your childhood like? Were you always interested in, in, uh, climbing and being outdoors? Lisa: So I grew up in the great mountaineering state of Illinois, where the highest point I believe is 120 feet. And it's so predominant that it actually has a name. Whereas in most states, if that elevation would not be named, so I didn't grow up. Aspiring to be a Mountaineer. I didn't grow up learning or reading about, you know, sir, Edmond Hillary or other sort of pioneering mountaineers. And I wasn't even really that athletic, you know, looking back, I grew up in a small farming community, uh, called Lincoln in the very center of Illinois. You know, every kid sort of makes the, the softball team or the volleyball team. I think there were a couple years where I did not even make it. I was so uncoordinated and unathletic a and I didn't grow up really with parents who pushed me to Excel. You know, I think part of their sort of distance is what motivated me to prove myself and to, you know, you know, back then it was about getting their attention. Lots of time in therapy talking about that. But one of the positives of that I've realized is that it pushed me to really want to Excel and to push myself mentally and physically. And that translated first, you know, I'm still by my account, but only person in my entire extended family to graduate from college, which is sort of sad, you know, to me, but it pushed me to do things that were unexpected. In my community and with my family. And so, you know, going to college was sort of the first step in that direction. I studied engineering, you know, not because I was super interested in it, but because I felt like that seems hard and I can probably make a decent salary when I graduate. And so I was fortunate to get a job with Hewlett Packard right out of college as an engineer, then it was, you know, that was the mid-nineties. I was the only woman at my level. And that taught me a lot. I was certainly not prepared coming from. You know, a very sort of hardworking farming-oriented family. I was not equipped to be thrown into a corporate environment at that age. I was 24. And so there was a lot of sort of flailing and trying to understand dynamics and politics. And I was often the youngest person in the room, the only female in the room. And. Upon reflection. Um, there were definitely some missteps, some things that I just, frankly didn't understand, cuz I was ill-equipped to be in that kind of environment. But one very positive thing that came of that was that through that job, I eventually moved to Seattle, which is where I live today. And here. You know, mountaineering, we're fortunate to be surrounded by the Cascade mountains and the Olympic mountain range. So climbing and mountaineering and just being in the mountains is really part of the culture in Seattle. When I moved here, uh, for that job still with, you know, it wasn't any longer with Hewlett Packard, but it was a derivation of that company. All the men at my level would go climbing on the weekend. And so I had no idea, right? I no, like I'd maybe been camping with my family, but I didn't like know anything about mountaineering. I didn't know what a crampon was. I had no idea the equipment, the gear, the, the, you know, the sort of aesthetic of climbing, nothing. But these men, you know, would go out on the weekends and they would come back to the office on Monday and they had all. You know, incredible stories. And again, it wasn't that I aspired to be in the mountains, but I aspired to be a part of their group. And I wanted them so badly to see me, the only woman on their team as capable and strong. And I wasn't getting that in the office environment. So this seemed like a way to do that. And instead of doing the totally logical thing, which would've been to say. Like oh, climbing. That sounds really cool. Can I come with you or can you tell me more about it? I just got frustrated. I got mad and eventually just decided I was gonna go climb my own damn mountains. And I had no, I again had no idea what that meant, but I started really just hiking around my house in the cascades. And then eventually in 2008, I attempted Mount Rainier, which is the highest mountain in Washington. And after that I was, I was just hooked spite no spite I was hooked at that. Passionistas: Do they know what you've accomplished since then? Lisa: I've lost track of them. I could probably, you know, through a network, get back to them, but I don't, I don't know. Probably not and they probably don't even, you know, these weren't bad guys at all. It just, I think didn't occur to them to ask me to join. And so they probably would have no reason to wonder like, Hey, I wonder if that girl ever climbed any mountains. Passionistas: You started to do this as, you know, a recreational activity, but then at some point that obviously shifted and you started to set these goals for yourself. So what inspired you to climb Mount Rainier and then to take it further from there? Lisa: Yeah, there was something about, so I didn't summit Rainier. My first attempt, the weather sort of turned bad on our second day and retreated. And, and I was relieved in that moment. I was happy cuz I just, I. Again, no idea what I was doing. Although I was with, you know, I was with a guide company and I was safe and all that, but I really just mentally wasn't prepared to be on a mountain and to just feel sort of the vastness of that challenge. And so I went back the next year before I got back to the parking lot in 2008, I was sure I was coming back. I tend to look at climbs like projects. And so even after that first year, I was like, okay, these are, you know, my backpack needs to be lighter. I need to have, you know, not red boots and have my own boots and just little things like that, that I started to like to learn and to, to tweak and adjust what I knew and my gear and my knowledge of the mountain. So I went back in 2009 and summited, and there was a moment, you know, where I sort of it's dark out and you're, you know, you can't really. Appreciate where you're at on the mountain and the sort of vastness of everything around you and the risk of falling. And because all you can see in the dark is just this little tiny circle of light from your headlamp. And so there was a moment where I remember looking what would've been east and seeing the sun just slowly start to split the horizon from the earth and. Just seeing like colors that were so magnificent and awe inspiring and thinking. This is an incredible experience and such a, a daunting place to be that taught me so much, so much humility to be learned in the mountains. When I got to the summit, I just had this incredible sense of accomplishment that I hadn't found anywhere else. I hadn't really gotten it from my parents as a kid. I hadn't gotten it at work. I, you know, graduated from college, any accomplishment I had had in my life until that point hadn't made me feel that way. And I loved that. I still love that climbing is. Obviously a very physical pursuit, but there is an enormous mental challenge that comes with climbing, you know, in any discipline of climbing. And I really loved that combination and I loved the idea of setting. Lofty goal and working hard and accomplishing it. And so I was completely hooked at that point. In two, I was 2009 and ready to just, I did, again, didn't know a lot about what to climb next, but I was sure that I was gonna keep doing it. Passionistas: You know, you were kind of inspired to do it by this being in this male dominated world. When you got to climbing, were there a lot of other women who were in doing what you were doing? Lisa” No. In fact, I, in the beginning was gonna name my book, the only girl, and it has changed. This is, you know, the late 2000s. It is getting better. You know, there's more diversity that the only, and first all black team summited Everest last month, which is incredible to see. And I was fortunate to play a small role in coaching them. So it's changing the dynamics, the face of, of people who enjoy the mountains is changing. But then I was. I don't always is maybe a strong word, but 95% of the time, I was the only woman on the team. And, you know, I was used to being in male dominated arenas, so that wasn't unusual for me, but I think it, you know, being an intense environment like climbing, just sort of heightened all of the challenges that come with that and made them much more potent. And it took me a long time to realize. Or to think about how I showed up in those roles. There was always the, like people doubted and people would say, oh, it's cute. I think you're gonna climb Mount Everest. That's a whole other conversation, but what I tended to think about myself and how I showed up in those situations. And at first I would just be one of the guys, I mean, so much so that they would undress in front of me and not even like, consider that there was a woman standing next to them. On Everest was the first time that I, that just didn't feel authentic to me anymore. It didn't feel right to laugh at crew. That were often, you know, demeaning to women. It didn't feel right to overlook little comments that just didn't sit well with me anymore. And so that was the first time. And there's a moment. And I talk about it in my book where I, you know, all men and I sort of separated myself from them for a minute because it just, I needed to feel like a woman and I needed to feel like myself in that environment. And, you know, at the time it. We're sort of arguing back and forth about my opinion about something versus theirs. But I realize now that it was me sort of stepping into my own strength and my own sort of persona as a woman and saying like this isn't okay anymore. And I'm not gonna just, you know, sit here and let it happen without saying anything. It's still challenging. It's getting better. But yeah, there were a lot of moments there just being, the only woman was a challenge for me. Passionistas: Do you think there are certain qualities that you, as a woman bring to a climb that's different than the male energy of a, of a climb? Lisa: And again, generalizing. Right. But I, I'm fortunate now that I get to coach mountaineers and I coach men and women. Um, and I, you know, I can see those nuances, even as I'm coaching them, women are much more interested in like the mental side. Of taking on a challenge, like a big mountain and making sure that they're very well rounded in their preparations. They wanna make sure that they're understanding the route. You know, they know where the challenges will be and that mentally they have the tools to get through them. And men generally, again, not always the case, but often just like they wanna like train and work hard and do all the runs and all the hikes and all the preparation climbs. And don't often sort of step back and say, There's a whole other side of this. There's a whole other, you know, facet to climbing big mountains. And, you know, my experience is that when you look at everything holistically is when you're the most prepared and when you're the most successful. And I think even on the mountains, you know, it's tough, there's difficult situations. And I find that women often add just a little bit more compassion to those situations. A little bit more empathy. and sometimes that's what you need to get through something that's difficult. So there's my experience. Yeah. There's a big difference between what men and women bring to those situations. Passionistas: So you, you have the successful Mount Rainier climb in 2009. What happens next? And how do you kind of plan where you go next? Lisa: Yeah, so I didn't do a lot of planning. I just knew, I knew I wanted to keep climbing more challenging things and there's, you know, back in the eighties, I believe it was a couple of mountaineers society. It would be really cool to climb to the highest peak of every single continent. And so I thought, okay, I'll just start doing that. You know, I don't know what to do. I picked the easiest, one of those, which was in Russia, a Mount called Elbrus and was successful there. So I thought, okay, well, Keep sort of on that track and climbing in the cascades as well, sort of, you know, like thinking, okay, I wanna be more independent and learn different skills, like building anchors and self-arrest and rope management. And so I, I would take excursions on the weekends locally to do those things. And then about once a year I would climb something big somewhere else in the world. And I was on that track and I had sort of decided. Mount Everest was kind of the next logical thing for me to climb just in terms of skill and difficulty. And at the time I felt like, oh, Everest is so commercial and there must be more interesting mountains in the Himalaya to climb. And so I had decided, and this really is a big moment. I think, in any mountaineers' career I had decided I was ready to climb in the Himalaya. So, you know, the Himalaya is this huge mountain range that bisects Asia and. It's special for a lot of reasons, but one is that. Most of the highest mountains in the world are there. And when we say high, in terms of mountaineering, we're talking about any mountain that's higher than 26,000 feet or 8,000 meters. And there's only 14 of those in the world. And so I, in 2015 thought, okay, I think I'm ready. Like I'm ready to try an easy one and just see how it goes. So. I picked that mountain, which is called Montes SL. And I was just beginning to prepare for it when I was diagnosed with cancer, you know, we, we've already established that. I'm a very stubborn person and I was a little cocky, you know, I was 42 years old. I thought and, and an athlete, like I ate organic vegetables. I wore my seatbelt. I floss my teeth. Like I, all those things that you are, you are taught to believe will keep you healthy. I thought I was doing it turns out I had a tremendous amount of stress in my job, which is, you know, like looking back and sort of analyzing how my body could get reacted that way to an external thing. It probably was a lot of stress at work, but nonetheless, I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the beginning of 2015. I was determined. Not to let cancer dictate my priorities so much so that I sat with my surgeon and said like, is there any way we could just postpone this whole cancer thing? Like, can we just like, how much could those tumors really grow in eight months? Like I just go do this climb and I'll come back and then you can do whatever you want with my body. When I get back and she very compassionately said that that would be a full hearty decision. I always remember that she used that word. And so I was very fortunate that I was able to get rid of the tumors in my, uh, breast with a bilateral mastectomy from which I did at the beginning in April of 2015. And I was, I mean, determination. Isn't a big enough word for how focused I was on getting my body ready to still travel to Nepal and attempt Montes SL. That autumn. And so I went, um, I was not, I was not a hundred percent. I had all, you know, all my doctors, all my care, healthcare providers knew what I was up to. They all thought I was a little bit crazy, but I had their support to be there. And. You know, their cell phone numbers, if anything went weird. And luckily it didn't, I didn't summit Manaslu in 2015, there was an avalanche above our camp. And, you know, the team felt that it just wasn't safe to continue. So we all turned around and I, I firmly believe that mountains and, you know, nature teaches us things. And so. When I got home, I, you know, I just sort of did some reflection about that climb. And I think sometimes you learn the most when you're not successful when you don't summit. But I realized that, you know, life is so fragile and that it's up to us. Each of us to define the lives that we will live. And so I became determined then to sort of reprioritize my life. My pause, my corporate career actually got a divorce and I decided to climb Mount Everest at that point. And, uh, went back to Nepal in 2016 to do that. Passionistas: So talk about that. Talk about preparing for that and you know, and the mental preparation, especially. Lisa: I learned a lot on Monte SL again, you know, success doesn't always mean you, you gain the most from a situation. And so I learned what my body was capable of. I knew that if I was healthy and trained, that I could be even stronger. And so I, I started working with a sports psychologist to really dig into the mental aspects. I was still a little bit unsure about what my body could do, you know, I, I, and I had. Probably four more surgeries before I went to Everest for reconstruction. So I depended a lot on a sports psychologist to just help me understand why Everest was important to me, what my body was capable of. To give me some really important tools that I use still today when things get difficult in the mountains to have something to focus on and to sort of rationalize what's going on around me and break it down into manageable chunks. So that was hugely helpful. I worked with a, a climbing coach as well to get me ready. You know, it was a very tumultuous time in my life as I was preparing to climb the most difficult mountain that I had climbed to that point. I was in the middle of getting a divorce. I wasn't sure I wanted to keep working. My dog died. Like all these, just so many things happened and looking back. It felt like just a really big reset, like the universe sort of saying, like, you know, that was your life then before cancer, and this is your chance to find your life after cancer. You know, that really is a big gift. I always think that cancer, I am grateful today in the moment I was not, but today I'm grateful for cancer because it showed me so many things about priorities and what life is about and how I want to spend it. I know that there's a book worth of conversation to be had, if not more about actually climbing Mount Everest, but kind of in general, what was the experience like? Passionistas: What was the biggest challenge that you faced in, in the midst of that experience? Lisa: Yeah, so climbing a big mountain, like Everest, I'll just provide a quick sort of background as to how it even. You know, it's, those mountains are so big, right? Your, your body could not possibly function. Even if you're breathing supplemental oxygen. It's not as easy as just walking to base camp and then starting to climb. There's a whole process of a climatization. Where you start at one camp climb to the next highest camp and then return to that first camp. And then you repeat that process gradually moving up the mountain, and that allows your body to change physiologically, to build more red blood cells so that you can survive at those higher elevations. And so for me on Everest as I was going through that process, I really felt in sync with the mountain in contrast to K2, which I'm sure we'll talk about in a little bit, but I really felt like things just went smoothly. I felt like the mountain and I were working together and that we sort of [00:23:00] shared a level of respect. That, you know, ultimately ultimately allowed me to be successful, but that doesn't mean there weren't difficult moments. I recall climbing from camp three to camp four and it had been very, very windy. So, you know, hadn't slept at all the night before was lying in a very cramped tent. That was my side of the tent was actually can levered over the side of the mountain because it, you know, it was so steep. And, you know, a lot of emotional, like, is it too windy? You know, are we gonna have a chance to summit? We need to descend. And then it's a very quick decision by our team to like, we look, it looks like we have a window. We're gonna go up. I had sort of envisioned like having this moment to like get ready. And that was none of that. It was very rushed and harried and chaotic. And I, I walk out of the tent and I clip into the fixed rope with my, with my harness. and it was so incredibly windy that it kept blowing me over. And I remember these moments of just hearing the wind coming towards me from my left side, and then just lying face down on the ice to let it pass me by before I could continue. And that luckily subsided after, I don't know, a couple of hours or something. And, and then. I got to what I knew was gonna be the easiest part of that day, which is sort of a flat section that curves to the left towards a rock feature called the yellow band. And the yellow band is about 25 degrees. So it's not super steep. It's limestone. It would actually be fun to climb it at sea level, but as I'm walking towards it, I realize that I'm moving so slow and I'm actually. Like I get distracted by someone's glove, rolling down the ice. And my friend came up from behind me is like, what, you know, what do you what's going on? And I was like, I don't know. I just, I just wanna like lay down and I had run out of oxygen. So my brain and my, my muscles were not getting the oxygen that they needed to continue. I had a couple, I had a decision to make, I had a few choices in that moment. I could have turned around and gone back to camp three and said, you know, my climbs over or looked for more oxygen. I could have sat there in the snow and asked someone, probably a Sherpa to bring me more oxygen where I could have kept going. And. Those first two options just didn't feel right to me. And so I continued climbing. I will never forget. So climbing this relatively, you know, at sea level, easy section of rock and telling myself to just focus on the climber ahead of me and to never let him outta my sight, like just, he's not gonna get outta my site no matter what it takes. And I don't know how long it took me. I, you know, everything got really fuzzy at that moment. And I was still safe. I still had people around me and people knew that I didn't have oxygen, but I, that made that situation made me realize that we are so much stronger mentally than we believe or that, that we give ourselves credit for, because my body was literally like, it didn't have the gas that needed to continue. And it was just, I think my mind is pushing me, just willing myself forward to get through that situation. And the best feeling in the world. Like I hope nobody has to experience that, but I can't tell you how sweet it is to not have oxygen and have oxygen. Like, as soon as I got a fresh bottle, it was like, the world was right again. So a challenging moment. But like I said, I think mountains teach us things and you know, it taught me that I sort of have this untapped tool in my, you know, mental capacity that I really. You know, even now I feel like there's so much more potential to hone that skill of being mentally strong.

We'd like to thank our sponsors — Melanie Childers, Natural Born Rebel, The Ossa Collective, Tea Drops, Aaron's Coffee Corner, Flourishing Over Fifty, Edith Espanola, Mermaid's Garden, Sara Fins Coaching, and Tara McCann Wellness. Now here's more of our interview with Lisa. That process of getting in tune with the mountain and going back and forth to the different camps. How long does that take? Lisa: It takes about a month, maybe six weeks. It just depends on weather and how fast people are moving People climbing in sort of the standard style climbing, big mountains and 8,000 meter peaks. Usually it takes about six weeks to, to two months to, to do that. So it's a long time. Passionistas: In 2017, you actually won an Emmy for something related to the Everest climb. Lisa: Right? So we, so this is totally serendipitous. So the expedition leader is named Garrett Madison He had endeavored to capture our climb in virtual reality, you know, technology has changed a lot since 2016. And so the way we did it was to strap all these GoPros sort of in a sphere and then carry that on a wand up the mountain and thereby, you know, create this 360 degree view. Of our climb. And then later some very smart people stitched that together and actually made it a virtual reality film, which is called capturing Everest. And, you know, I didn't know that was gonna happen when I signed up for that climb. There were, you know, a lot of. Sort of deals made and, and it just happened to be purchased by sports illustrated, um, and turned into this really cool documentary that later won an Emmy, not for my acting prowess, surprisingly, but for just the technology. It was the first time that anyone had captured virtual reality footage in that kind of an environment. You can find it on the sports illustrated website and on their app. And it's really, it's really fun if even if you don't have a headset, you can watch it in 360-degree video with your phone. And I will tell you, it will make you dizzy. Like even me having been there, it is very, very real to watch people, you know, climbing or walking across the ladder or climbing a steep part of, of the, the mountain. So I feel. You know, never in my life, if you've said like you could win an Emmy, I would like never thought that. So it was a really, really cool experience and cool to be able to just share that in a very tangible way, with cool technology, to people who, you know, may never endeavor to climb. But now get to have a little bit of a taste of what it's like. Passionistas: So that same year in 2017, you, um, became the first all American women to summit K2. So how did that differ from climbing Mount Everest and what unique challenges did you face on that? Lisa: Yeah. So it was 2017. I, I endeavored to go to K2 for the first time. My team actually fell apart. And so I didn't climb that mountain that year. I went back in 2018 and in 2017, the first American woman did summit. And I felt like, you know, I, I, this is still an important climb for me. It's something. I think being the first is very cool. I think not being the only is even cooler. And so it was important to me to just sort of continue showing what women could do in the mountains. So K2 is the second highest mountain in the world. It's about 800 feet shorter than Mount Everest. K2 is in Pakistan. It's on the border between China and Pakistan. Most people, like if I'm at a dinner party and you know, someone finds out that I've climbed Everest, they get super excited and they wanna know what that's like, and I'll say, yeah, but I climbed this other mountain called K2, which is actually like really, really hard. And they're like, yeah. But tell me about Everest. Did you see any dead people? So most people don't even know. You know, not even heard of K2, it's in a much more remote part of the world. For example, you know, the, the walk to Everest space camp is, you know, in a lovely valley, there are tea houses. There are commercial helicopters. There is an emergency room at Everest space camp. There is none of that. In the Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan, you are farther from any kind of definitive medical care that you'll probably ever be in your life. And that, you know, would involve a Pakistani army helicopter ride to a small hospital in a remote village. So it's, it's much more remote. The weather on K2 is also much more fickle. So it's, you know, known for just monster storms that sort of whip out of nowhere, dump a lot of snow. Cause avalanches. K2 is also steep from like the second you leave base camp. It is just unrelentingly steep and it is also known for a lot of rock fall. So you can imagine that my family was super excited to hear about me. Deciding to climb this mountain, I had just, you know, beat cancer. My father was diagnosed with cancer when I was climbing Mount Everest and, and died about a month after I got home. And so I sort of promised him that K2 would be the last, really dangerous mountain that I climbed. I was very determined to give it a go in 2018. And, and I was so fortunate that. Everything aligned, you know, the, I had a great team, the weather was decent and we were able to make it work. And, and, you know, and I mentioned earlier that I felt very in sync with Mount Everest and on K2. I felt every day like that mountain was trying to kill me, you know, in the form of rock falls in the form of other climbers dying. I just never really felt like I was in sync with that mountain. And there was a moment where again, climbing steep rock much steeper than the rock I describe on Everest. It's a section of the route called the Black Pyramid and it's at 25,000. And so in this moment I'm wearing a down suit. I'm actually breathing bottled oxygen because the climbing is so difficult and I'm attached to a rope. And that section of the mountain is sort of really like chunky, just unstable rock and there's snow and ice. And I wanted to quit. Like I wanted to just turn around. I fantasized about like reversing my direction on the rope and I thought I could be. Back at base camp in a couple of days, and I could get a helicopter to Islamabad and I could take a proper shower and like eat, you know, I'd really just let, like all the things my sports psychologist told me not to do. I just really let that real like play out. I wanted to turn around and I remember, you know, from somewhere there was a voice in my head that said, is this all you were capable of? And I realized that it was not all that I was capable of, that I was, you know, I was frustrated and I was tired and I was mad at myself, but I was capable of more. And so I kept just. Putting one hand above the other one foot above the other. And I knew that would be the hardest point in the mountain. And once I got past that, you know, the, the rocks were relented and it was more snow, which is my comfort zone, but there were many, many moments where I wanted to quit. So then what did that moment feel like when you finally reached the. So I remember climbing. So a couple days after that scene that I described with the Black Pyramid and we attempted the summit and, you know, the night before the summit, you're sort of, you're laying, I was laying in a tent with two other men in the middle position wearing my down suit boots. Like you don't really sleep. You just sort of lay there for a few hours, like waiting and breathing bottle oxygen. I had this sort of like checklist in my mind of like making sure that I had food in the right places, on my, down, in my down suit that I had like turned on my GPS device, like going through all those sort of pre-flight checklist things. And then we, we left for the summit and it's dark out and I knew the climbing initially would not be. The steepest part. I knew it would be a little bit chill for a bit, and then it was gonna get steeper. And I had, you know, that sort of pre-flight checklist. I had put new batteries in my headlamp. And as I'm climbing, I realize that the batteries are about are dying. They're dimmer than everyone else is. And I say, I'm fine. I have a, I have a spare set. It's close to my body. So they're not frozen. I stop, you know, with thick gloves, like fumble around, finally get the batteries in there. Good. Keep climbing, catch up with my team. And it happens again. And I don't have a spare and I can't expect anybody else to give me their spare. They're sort of, you know, they're sort of ethic and climbing that. You need to be self-sufficient up there. You can't rely on anybody else. And so I remember screaming at the guy in front of me, Rob Smith, a fantastic guy from Ireland, and he gave me his spare batteries. You know, it's very delicate exchange, right? If you can imagine we're in these thick gloves, we're on the side of a mountain, it's dark. And I just remember him like pushing that battery into the palm of my glove. And I remember thinking if you dropped this, that's it. The reason it was, I mean, obviously it was important to see, but we were about to cross, what's called the bottleneck traverse on K2, which is, you know, it's actually flat, but it's about, it's less than one boot width. And so you're walking and there's like two miles of air beneath you. And so you cannot make a mistake there. You obviously cannot have compromised vision there. And so literally without Rob's help, I would not have. I wouldn't have made it. And that moment, you know, several hours later, I got to the summit and I remember it was it's light out now and I'm climbing by myself and it's, it's very, um, unconsolidated snow. So I'm sort of take one step and, you know, I'm, I'm putting my boot print in other people's path. So there's a little sort of steps there and sometimes they would just break and you would just slide down and, you know, it's just incredibly frustrating and you exert a lot of energy. But I looked up and I saw where the snow met the horizon. I saw bright colors and I thought, that's it. Like those are other peoples standing there at the summit. And more than anything, I wanted to cry in that moment. But I was like, do not cry. Like you you're not there yet. And just to sort of bring things full circle I had, after my father died, I had, you know, carried his ashes to like every mountain. Sprinkle them on the top. And it was a very, you know, just peaceful sort of full circle moment to spread the last of his ashes on the summative K2, which is, you know, he never in his life could have imagined traveling to Pakistan. So it was fun to just sort of, not only to have him with me, but to be able to share that with him as well was really special. Passionistas: What is the coming down like physically and emotionally? Lisa: So, I'm glad you asked that question, Amy, because most people and I was very, very conscious of writing about this in my book because the summit is halfway like it is literally halfway and more mountaineering accidents occur on the dissent. Then then climbing up and that's because you're tired. Many people push beyond what they're capable of. You're you know, just logistically you're facing away from the mountain. Oftentimes gravity is not working in your favor. And so the dissent to me is very. Harrowing like it's I very consciously at the top of, at any big mountain do not celebrate because it is, you're not done. There is still a lot more work to do. And on K2 in particular, you know, we talked a little bit about like that moment on Everest, where I felt like I was sort of stepping into my own strength and on K2, I'm [00:41:00] descending, very steep ice face and. There are ropes there. And one rope is meant for climbers coming up. There are still some climbers ascending, and the other rope is meant for climbers who are descending. Another climber had, uh, started to ascend the rope that I was about to use to go down. And I scream at him. You know, he's very, he's far down the slope. He can't hear me. He's just sort of laying there. And I sort of looked, my friend Garrett was next to me and he recommended that I descend. Using not the most secure technique, a, a technique arm wrapping where you wrap the rope around your arm and you, um, you're connected to that rope with a safety carabiner. It's locked, but you lean forward and just walk face first down the mountain. And I had done it many times, but, but I, it just didn't feel right. To do it then. And I didn't even, I don't even know where this voice came from, but I just told him no, like I'm not, that's not how I'm gonna do that this today. And so I, you know, set up my repel device, which takes longer, is much safer, but you know, takes longer repel down to this man who's laying face first and the ice, not, he wasn't response, he was alive. I could, you know, he was alive. He did survive by the way, just before I get too far in the story. But he wasn't responsive to my, you know, yelling at him, trying to get him to move. And so I had to execute this very, very delicate sequence of moving my gear, you know, establishing a safe anchor, moving my gear around him on what I know, because I, you know, study this mountain intimately is. The place on that mountain where most people have died and thankfully it went well and he survived and, you know, I was able to continue, but that was a moment that, to me, that just underscores that [00:43:00] the dissent is so in some ways more important than the ascent in terms of difficulty. And that, that moment looking back, or I said to my friend, Garrett, like, that's not how I'm gonna do this today. I really felt like was pivotal in terms of me, sort of, this is a man that I've climbed with for years. I've always trusted him. He knows my capability. And so for me to just, you know, take a different tact, I think was, you know, just more of me, like stepping into my own voice and strength in the mountains, which is a good feeling. Passionistas: Can you compare for us the fear that you faced being diagnosed with cancer versus the fear you faced on a mountain like that? Lisa: Knowing how dangerous it is and if those are different and if you have the same or different tools to deal with both. Yeah, that's an awesome question. They feel to me like somatically, they feel very different. I feel like different kinds of fear. When I was diagnosed with cancer, I felt completely unprepared to deal with that scenario. It was not anything that I ever thought I would have to encounter or deal with in my life. And I felt out of control. I felt like, you know, my body was, had turned against me initially. I, you know, before I had a team of people to support me, I felt alone. And without like a path or a, you know, a guide to get me through this situation. And luckily that changed and I found incredible healthcare. It felt much scarier to be diagnosed with cancer in the mountains. I feel like, you know, I have, I understand what I can control and I have the skills to get myself through it. And I think fear for sure in the mountains. I, I believe that a little bit of fear is a good thing because I think that it keeps you focused. It keeps me alert to what's going on around me. If the weather's changing, if the route is changing, if. You know, someone climbing above me that doesn't look super safe, that little bit of fear sharpens my awareness too much fear. I think in the mountains and in fighting cancer can be stifling. And I think it can actually, you know, sort of stop you from progressing. But that's a, a really important question because they, for me are very different flavors of fear. Passionistas: So what's the next big challenge for you? Lisa: Yeah. So we talked about it a little bit in the beginning. I don't endeavor. I don't have any desire to climb anything more challenging than K2 in my life, but I do wanna keep climbing and it's become more important to me to give back to the communities, particularly in Nepal and in Pakistan, where I have just learned so much about myself and gotten so much from them personally. So I wanna, I wanna start to give back to those communities and in particular to the women who, who live in those communities. So along with some female mountaineering friends of mine, we were setting up a philanthropic climb for this fall to a mountain called Cholatse which is in, uh, Nepal. It's about 6,800 meters. It will not be the hardest mountain we've ever climbed. But the point is that we just wanna show that anything is possible when women support one another in the mountains. And so to us, that means. That our team will be fully comprised of women. I don't know if that's ever happened before. I think there've been some all women's climbs that maybe had support from men, but, and not that we don't like men, but like we just wanna show that women can do everything in the mountains that a man can do. And so we're building that team. We're super lucky to have a great, uh, Nepalese uh, climbing leader. Pasang Lama. She's helping us create a team of all women to, to cook, to carry loads, to plan, to do everything. And we just think it's an incredible sort of opportunity to raise some money for at least one, depending on how, how fundraising goes maybe more, but we want to. We're soliciting input for Nepalese women who have some educational related goal in their life. So if they wanna learn a trade, if they wanna open a tea house, um, if they weren't wanna learn about economics, like we want to be able, we wanna be the catalyst that helps that woman learn those skills so that she can better not just her life. But I think, you know, that sort of has this trickle-down effect and has the potential to positively impact generations. So. I'm, you know, just beyond excited to be a part of this team and we'll see where it goes. We'd love to do it, you know, multiple years, but we're all, you know, just we're dedicated and excited to, to climb with a purpose now. Passionistas: So what inspired you to write your book "Finding Elevation"? Lisa: I had always wanted to write, which I studied engineering in college, you know? I felt like I was very far away from that as, as an adult, but as a kid, I had a desire to write. And in my twenties, I tried out different topics. You know, none of them just sort of seemed to fit. And then when I was diagnosed with cancer, I really relied on journaling to, to get me through that and to be this, you know, sort of outlet for everything that I was feeling. And. Probably two years of journaling, I sort of realized that there were a lot of things that I had encountered that seemed to translate to other people. You know, that if I could share what I had learned, the hard way with another woman that maybe, you know, she would have an easier path than I did. And so it became really important for me to share. Um, and, and, you know, at the time I thought this will just be about cancer. And then as I continued to climb and I continued to learn more about myself and what I'm capable of and how to overcome obstacles, how to find your voice. Most of that through K2, it, it just really turned into a much bigger project than just journaling. . What was the thing you learned about yourself from writing the book that maybe surprised you the. I think I learned a lot about my childhood when I was writing. Um, I, and I, you know, I spent a year studying memoir at the university of Washington, and I remember like my, there was nothing about my childhood in, in an early draft. And my instructor was like, you can't leave that out. Like that's a part of, and I was like, yeah, but it wasn't, you know, it wasn't super, like, it's kind of painful for me. I really don't wanna put it in here. Um, and of course it, you know, needs to be a more balanced story, et cetera, etcetera. And so by me sort of digging through that, I realized, you know, this sort of these traits that I have today and where they came from. And there was a lot of therapy in there as well. And it made me realize that, you know, something that. Because I said, my parents, you know, were not very reliable. They weren't always around. And, and that made me a very independent person. Um, there's certainly some downsides to that, but I think there's, I think there's always a silver lining. There's always some positive. Outcome, even of bad situations. And we often just have to look a little bit harder, like, you know, dig a little bit deeper to find them. But those I think are, you know, the real nuggets and like where, where we really learn why we are the way we are.

This episode of Christopher Lochhead: Follow Your Different is a love letter to America. I recently posted something on LinkedIn and on social media about the court's decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, and I wanted to share that with you and reflect on it with you for a moment. So, let's talk about America. Roe v. Wade People are saying this ruling put abortion back in the hands of the states. Sort of, but not really. It puts it back where it belongs in our hands. You and me get to decide what the future will be by voting. A poll with 235,613 responses says that 58% support women's rights to choose. Now, if the Democrats pick up seats in November, it will in large part demonstrate what Americans think about some combination of the abortion issue. And broadly, the Democratic agenda and how the Democrats have been performing in the White House and in Washington. With Biden at 38% approval, it seems very likely that the Dems will pick up seats in November. If the predicted red wave hits Washington, it will for sure tell us that some combination of dislike for Biden, the GOP's ideas resonating. and pro-life momentum are things that Americans are focused on. Continue to have Meaningful Dialogue Whether you're currently celebrating or reverberating over the road decision. It's important to underscore this is how it's supposed to work. We argue, we debate and hopefully we even listen radical idea, right? to each other. We come to our own conclusions, and we vote for candidates who most reflect our beliefs. Hating someone because they disagree with you might be the biggest stupid of all. Now, to be clear, I am pro-choice. And I could tell you why if you cared, and I respect that pro-life people truly believe they are doing what's best what's right. And I know and love people who I know to be legendary, very good people who are pro-life. I just disagree with them. That's okay. Steel sharpens steel. This is how it's supposed to work. Please participate in thoughtful dialogue. And let's all do some thinking, then let's vote. So that was the post and it seems to have blown up and hopefully caused some thought for a conversation. Some people have commented No, this is not how it's supposed to work. And they have an opinion about why that's the case. They might be right. But at a very high level. The difference between democracy and insanity is we dialogue. We vote. We create leaders and create laws and then we live by them. What we don't do is hate each other. And we don't fight with each other physically. That's called anarchy. And so I think what this tells all of us is, democracy is a participation sport.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we consider change. Out of Toronto there was a report about policing that proved the worst case scenario, but will those numbers make a distance? Also, might this be the last session of the Canadian government led by the current prime minister? Some people think it's possible. In the back half? We will work through some change of our own by talking to some local Indigenous voices. This Thursday, June 23, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss: Police Story. Last week, the Toronto Police Service released a report into racial discrimination in law enforcement, and to no one's surprise, especially the Black community of Toronto, racialized people are more like to get the harsher end of law enforcement whether that's guns drawn, use of force, and strip searches once in custody. So are the police now finally going to address systemic racism in their ranks? Tru-done? The latest session of the House of Commons is scheduled to come to an end this week, and not a moment too soon because a lot of pundits are saying that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is checked out, disengaged, and other non-superlatives. Unfortunately, inflation and a new scandal involving the RCMP have captured the media and the opposition's attention, so is this summer going to be Trudeau's big goodbye? Live, Sort of, From the Park. Tuesday was National Indigenous People's Day across Canada, but the Guelph festivities were in Riverside Park, the first in-person event for this occasion in two years.

  Mining Bitcoin and swimming in sats I had the pleasure of speaking to Tech Engineer a bitcoin mining pleb who has built a fully functional swimming pool heating system using bitcoin miners, immersion tanks and automation to thermostatically control everything. Tech engineers focus is on privacy, security and the ability to double spend energy to heat while mining Bitcoin. In this episode we discus Tech's rabbit hole journey and why mining was so interesting for him, we also discussed the need for decentralising the network and helping smaller miners compete by using the heat produced by mining for something productive. I really enjoyed speaking to Tech and I hope you enjoy listening. I have decided to also add transcripts at the bottom of the show notes as some people have told me this would be useful. Transcripts might not be perfect but they should be pretty good.    If you aren't already following @techengineer21 I suggest you do it now.    twitter - @techengineer21 twitter - link to pinned video https://twitter.com/techengineer21/status/1523023198287130624?s=20&t=Ct2G5BawqRw4Nc6LcRUaBQ As always please feel free to reach out and ask me any questions. twitter - @MaxBitbuybit twitter - @bitbuybitpod Website - https://ungovernablemisfits.com   Today you can exchange $1 for 4760 Sats (Sale ends soon.)  Thank you Foundation Devices for sponsoring the show.

Um I try and find always people who are doing interesting things and not just the usual podcast circuit and I came across your profile and saw your video you'd done um on this immersion tank and. Pool heating and is something I discussed ages ago with a mate of mine a mate like me with no technical ability and it was just like a thing we talked about but we're too dumb to actually do it. We're like fuck. Someone's got to do this. This is something that's got to happen just makes so much sense and when I saw yours I was like fuck I just need to speak to you and.   01:25.59 TechEngineer And.   01:44.12 maxbuybit1 You know, find a little bit more out because this is the future. It's fucking cool.   01:51.23 TechEngineer So right on man. Yeah, let's let's talk about it.   01:59.56 maxbuybit1 So Yeah I mean um, less so we can do rabbit hole stuff later On. Let's just dive straight in with with what you've been doing Obviously I've seen the video but. For anyone who hasn't can you sort of describe the project and and and what made you decide to do it.   02:33.79 TechEngineer Yeah, absolutely so let me start with a little background. Um back in 2017 was when I kind of went down the bitcoin rabbit hole. It was November of None I heard on the radio bitcoin cross $10000 and I was like. What is going on with this. Um and I was I was instantly intrigued and wanted to look into it more and immediately was drawn to the technology aspect of it and the mining aspect of it. Um. So I started looking into mining and at that time. Ah the miners went up in cost dramatically kind of similar to what happened in 20202021 and I tried to put to order a miner and it. It got delayed and that eventually just never shipped. Um, but there it so it was ah an it was an expensive endeavor for me to get into but I was still very interested. But at the time I knew like I was living in Colorado and I wanted to somehow use the heat that was. Being put off of these devices because I knew they put just put out a ton of heat. So that time I was thinking well maybe I'll just put in my basement and ducked something up to my upstairs long story short. It never ended up up working out just because the miner never showed up and then um. Price kind of dumped and then we went into a bear market and the profitability equation changed and I just decided that I just couldn't I didn't get into it at that time but that kind of built in the back of my mind like.   05:54.36 maxbuybit1 Here.   06:16.35 TechEngineer Want to mine. It's important for the bitcoin ecosystem for mining to be very decentralized but we need some sort of other factor that helps it be more productive to like a home miner so hard using the heat was in my mind. So fast forward to 2021? Um I finally decided you know what I need to just take the plunge here and start building a heater out of a minor so I don't know if you saw my original video but it was a a minor that I put inside of a box. And then aducted into my hvac system my heater my the heater in my house and then I put in some dampers and thermostatically controlled the airflow from the heater from the from the miner into my heater. So I basically he did my entire house all winter using using this system. So I'm I'm guessing you haven't seen that one I think you saw my ah.   08:08.54 maxbuybit1 Amazing. I haven't no um I haven't seen that one I have seen it done before but I haven't seen that specific one and I'm right in thinking it's fucking cold in Colorado. Been been there skiing before and fraze my boocks off. So I assume you need a lot of heat when you're living in there.   08:55.51 TechEngineer So yeah, and actually I don't live in Colorado anymore I mean I'm in Nevada now. So it's a much warmer climate but um, still need some heat in the winter. So I mean that was that was my None big.   09:04.50 maxbuybit1 Okay.   09:30.39 TechEngineer Step into this whole arena here was when I built that that system and that was kind of before I had joined bitcoin Twitter even and realized everything that was going on. So um, so once I had ah finished that system.   09:40.60 maxbuybit1 Here here.   10:07.57 TechEngineer And I had proved out that I can actually heat my house all winter with this system. Um the the next level for me was immersion. So the original system was just taking the air and redirecting it.   10:30.76 maxbuybit1 Here.   10:43.77 TechEngineer Um, but you can only do so much with redirecting air. You can't move it very far. You can't do anything other than really heating air with air. But I knew in the back of my head that ah like liquid cooling like I have I build um my own computers. And the cpu are liquid cooled so that was already in my mind like that's a thing I just didn't know that an immersion existed yet. So once I so once I kind of got on to bitcoin Twitter saw some other people do an immersion once I realized that was a thing I was like.   11:24.72 maxbuybit1 Here. Okay.   11:51.81 TechEngineer Oh my God I gotta try this out because I.   11:58.56 maxbuybit1 What what was what was that like finding bitcoin Twitter for the None time because I know for me, it was an absolute lifesaver like it just changed the game.   12:20.30 TechEngineer And it was ah it was ah a game changer for me as well. I mean I have always kind of been doing these projects and I mean my name is my name is tech engineer because I love technology I Love engineering I'm mean the home automation I'm always doing Diy engineering projects but I'm just kind of doing it.   13:02.78 maxbuybit1 A.   13:00.51 TechEngineer Solo on my own That's how I've always done it and I've always wanted to kind of like branch out and like start documenting these things like because I know that what I'm doing has interest to other people and so finally I was like you know I just got to do this and I made a video about it posted on Youtube and then then it just kind of. Ble up on Twitter and went around in in through bitcoin Twitter and I realized all these people have a big interest in this and I was like oh my god these are these are my fucking people right here like so it was ah it was a game changer for me then I I mean I I love it like it's.   13:51.94 maxbuybit1 Are.   14:16.22 maxbuybit1 Yeah, that's so fucking cool and and like you said is it is so useful for so many people because you know there are people like me who like us a really great idea like it's It's a logical thing that you use this heat. But then we're too dumb to actually do it and then so you have this this stuff documented and.   14:14.17 TechEngineer Awesome.   14:50.77 TechEngineer So.   14:55.34 maxbuybit1 It's so important to help decentralize this thing because otherwise what's going to happen if you don't have people like you and acono alchemists and people out there who are pushing and documenting you just have everyone putting their minors in huge warehouses with shit shows like compass or things like that. And then it's really so much easier to attack and um, yeah, that's why I'm just I'm so excited when I see this kind of innovation and and people tinkering and and building and um, this is this is the stuff that like really moves this space. Forward. This is what it's all about.   15:58.53 TechEngineer So yeah, absolutely and that is one of my biggest drivers behind what I'm doing is to further decentralize mining because I see the trend happening of centralization of mining whether it be into. Big mining companies or like you were saying like hosted solutions and that just that just introduces a whole host of of problems. Um, when you have centralization and I actually have an article coming out in the next few days that I talk a bit more about it. Um.   16:41.14 maxbuybit1 Here.   17:12.20 TechEngineer And why I think that's kind of bad I don't I don't I don't one hundred percent think that like big bitcoin minds are bad but we need both. We need we need. We need to decentralize as much as we can um, but whereas but what worries me is what happened to me in 27   17:28.14 maxbuybit1 A.   17:48.93 TechEngineer Eighteen where I was interested in mining. But then I realized that the profitability equation just wasn't there once we went into a bear market. So but I realized that if we can use reuse the heat and if somebody's like heating their pool or their house.   18:04.92 maxbuybit1 Here.   18:25.21 TechEngineer And they're also making bitcoin Now we have a different equation altogether.   18:32.44 maxbuybit1 And the other the other interesting thing for me when it comes to this stuff like this like even if even if it's breakeven or only very very slightly profitable for people the fat that they're actually mining and getting no K I see sats. Rather than just going on to an exchange and buying on there and giving all their information I think that's incredibly important to push this space forward in the right Direction. So the more this gets normalized. Um the better for the whole space. The better for the individual like But. Ah, whole thing about this for me anyway is like this is freedom money and fuck you money? not you know KYC cut money and and go and give all your details away and everyone's tracked and and traced that's that's not the future I Want to see here. So What you're doing here allows people to actually have access to this and. Allows people to this to be a reality for people where it makes financial sense as well.   20:31.45 TechEngineer Yeah, absolutely and I mean I see you know more of the hardcore bitcoiners. They're willing to mine at an even or even a little bit of a loss just because of the no KYC option but to get into.   20:47.54 maxbuybit1 I.   20:58.34 maxbuybit1 Um.   21:10.15 TechEngineer The next layer of people that you know aren't that into it. It needs to be either more profitable or simpler or say they're just buying a water heater that happens to make bitcoin on the side. That's right, That's where I want to see it going and.   21:40.26 maxbuybit1 Here.   21:48.53 TechEngineer And 10 years is like these are just appliances that are that the average person is buying whether or whether or not they even know that bitcoin is being mined I mean that's all I think we need to get to eventually is that it's just.   22:09.86 maxbuybit1 A.   22:24.57 TechEngineer Integrated into every part of our system because I mean if if this is going to be the base layer of of the future monetary system. It's got to be secure.   22:48.56 maxbuybit1 Yeah, absolutely and so obviously you, you're a very like technically minded guy. Um, what was it like for you coming into this from the tech side and being like this is interesting. This is cool. Um, and then. Looking into the money like what was that experience like or were you already interested in Austrian economics and and that side of things or was it ah quite a mind blowing thing to be like oh shit like this is this is the money we've been using and this this is the problems.   23:38.37 TechEngineer And.   23:56.95 TechEngineer So I was I was at None very interested in money go up I saw 10000 I was kind of an investor in the stock market and I was like what is going on here now I I had actually heard about bitcoin mining in I think around None   24:30.52 maxbuybit1 A.   24:32.15 TechEngineer And I looked into it for None nutes and was like um yeah I don't know what this is like never got into it obviously kicking myself for it. But anyway, um, in 172018 it was like the technology was mind blowing to me. Um I have always. So I'm ah I'm a network engineer by trade I've been building computers and networks for over 20 years so the technology side was really really intriguing to me cryptography has always interested me. Um I'm a. Been a certified ethical hacker in the past. So I kind of um, have a deeper understanding of cryptography and security and all these things are just beautifully enveloped in in bitcoin. So it was technology kind of money. Go up. 172018 for me. Um, none 2021 it was really looking at bitcoin from the aspect of the world needs a new financial system because our current one is completely broken. And I mean it even it got just got worse in 202021 in my opinion and and now so it was in the last two years that I was like the world really needs. Bitcoin now it's not just a cool technology. It's it's a socioeconomic revolution that the world needs.   27:27.22 maxbuybit1 A.   27:37.92 maxbuybit1 Yeah I couldn't agree more I think we're fucked without it.   27:45.35 TechEngineer Um, yeah.   27:53.58 maxbuybit1 So yeah, it's interesting to see somebody come in from the textile I mean almost everyone that I know or spoken to is always number go up almost always number go up I mean a few people say like oh yeah I mean I'm in it for the tech, especially in the bear markets.   28:14.43 TechEngineer So ah.   28:26.92 maxbuybit1 Ah, you know if truth be told it's It's always for the money and um, yeah, it's um, it is nice to know that we've got this thing on our side and um, it's It's nice to know that there's like a possibility for a future where.   28:26.21 TechEngineer Yeah, so.   29:00.16 maxbuybit1 We aren't tied to these psychopaths who are doing the crazy shit they're doing at the moment and um, it's you know for for the less technical people. Um, it takes a long time to like have some trust in this thing. Um, but I imagine for you.   29:29.33 TechEngineer Yeah, absolutely I.   29:35.46 maxbuybit1 Especially with the background. You've just told me it's like um, you're almost made for this. You know you're made to understand this with the background that you have so when you were None learning were there any like red flags or anything where you thought ah you know this is a problem or that's a problem like were there were there concerns.   30:11.35 TechEngineer Amen you're cutting out a little bit and.   30:14.64 maxbuybit1 Or or are there any concerns that you have with the system now.   30:21.35 TechEngineer Hey sorry max you you cut out a little bit like I missed a bit of that question. Can you hear me.   30:29.68 maxbuybit1 Fucking Hell have I lost you? ah.   30:44.83 TechEngineer M.   31:02.93 TechEngineer Can you hear me.   31:17.81 TechEngineer Can you hear me relax.   31:49.70 TechEngineer Okay, can you hear me max.   31:54.98 maxbuybit1 Okay, mate what I'm gonna do then if you can't hear me I am going to close this out and then I'll send you another link and we'll start to with start again. You haven't got well you haven't got yours muted just try speaking. Let me see if I can see your sound waves.   32:42.17 TechEngineer Can you hear me can you hear me at all. Yeah oh they're moving for me.   32:46.76 maxbuybit1 If you're speaking now I can't hear you can you? You maybe can see the sound waves like minor moving and then there's nothing under yours. So if it's not muted then I don't know I'll ah I'll send you a new link now mate.   00:00.30 maxbuybit1 So hey mate. Yeah I heard that can you hear me? Yeah, excellent and we're recording fucking every time I have some stupid issue with this so apologies. Um, yeah, that's all say.   00:02.70 TechEngineer You Yes I can hear you can hear me. Okay.   00:26.46 TechEngineer But the worst.   00:34.85 maxbuybit1 So so I'm not sure where we exactly cut off there I was probably waffling about something. Ah but I can't remember where we'd got to it doesn't matter doesn't matter. Um, so yeah I.   00:47.16 TechEngineer I Can't remember either to be honest, um.   01:13.77 maxbuybit1 Tell me a little bit more about because obviously you'd said you'd started with without immersion and and moving air and now obviously you're working with immersion. Um I know from previous conversations with. John who you know and a few others who were saying that it also makes it a little bit more performant and potentially because it's more stable can be good for um for the miners as well is that right? and and if so do you sort of see most of the space eventually going. This route with immersion.   02:22.20 TechEngineer Yeah, so once I had completed my original heater and then I realized that immersion existed I was like this this is definitely the way because once you have the heat in liquid form. You can do a lot more with it. You can heat water heaters you can heat pools you can still heat air. You can use a water to air heat exchanger and just switch it back into air so you can have None power plant of a minor heater creating heat into an oil and then. Use that heat for many different applications. So I knew it was more modular to reuse the heat in that way. So I want it I wanted to try it out and and build it and in terms of.   03:45.77 maxbuybit1 A.   03:55.56 TechEngineer The longevity of the miners being in oil I have heard that as well and it makes sense to me that um, an oil would be healthier for the chips to be in um, the oil itself is like a none times more. Ah. Are less conducive to less electricity than air. So that helps and then it just keeps it. You know, encapsulated away from oxygen so I I think in general it. It makes sense that it would be better for it. I haven't done any long-term testing myself yet. Obviously I built that tank only I guess about five months ago now four or five months ago now so but yeah, that's kind of the the reasoning for transitioning into.   05:13.59 maxbuybit1 He.   05:27.71 maxbuybit1 A.   05:43.38 TechEngineer Immersion is the capability of where you can move that heat to you can go longer distance. There's many more things you can do at once once it's in a liquid form.   06:09.69 maxbuybit1 And so you know the other thing that you were talking about was like this being in ah this sort of being if I lost you again. Are you there.   06:39.22 TechEngineer Hey you just cut out again. Can you hear me? Okay, okay.   06:45.87 maxbuybit1 Yeah I just saw that it cut out. Um, yeah I can hear I can hear you sorry I'm almost certain this is going to be my ah my issue on my end. So I do apologize. But hopefully we can work with it. Um.   07:04.96 TechEngineer Okay, yeah.   07:19.30 maxbuybit1 Yeah, So ah, you were saying about you know this potentially being used um in boilers and and other products where people don't even necessarily have to know that they're mining bitcoin. Do You think that? um. There's any drawbacks or any reason like in terms of efficiency or anything like that. Why someone would use like a traditional kombie Boiler or something over one of these because obviously a lot of those are gas rather than you know running with electric.   08:19.56 TechEngineer So yeah, so in terms of efficiency. Um, all electricity turns into a to heat 100% of the time. No matter what what you're using the electricity for it always transitions a hundred percent into heat.   08:54.55 maxbuybit1 E.   08:56.18 TechEngineer So if you're comparing directly to say an electric pool heater that is just using resistive like a resistive coil. You're just pushing electricity through a coil and it heats up comparing that to running an Asic and then. Pulling the heat off of that you're we're gonna you're going to be near near a hundred percent efficiency um other than some losses of like the tank or the the piping but all that can be minimized with insulation and whatnot so comparing an Asic.   09:57.35 maxbuybit1 A a.   10:11.64 TechEngineer Heater to an electric heater. It's near near None efficiency theoretically and and for the most part in practice once it's once it's well designed and once you have a system that's is completed and set up the efficiency is going to be very high. Comparing to that to gas is um is another story because then you're you're running into like the cost of gas heating versus electric heating and often in a lot of jurisdictions. Gas is cheaper than electricity.   11:10.31 maxbuybit1 A.   11:26.60 TechEngineer So from a pure ah pure cost perspective gas could theoretically still be cheaper. But if you're just dropped replacing say an electric water heater for an asic electric water or pool Heater. It's going to be. Going to cost the same amount to run it. You're just going to be making bitcoin on top of that. So it might end up paying for itself. But so I mean in my case I have a ah gas heater in my house I switch to electric. Technically I'm spending more fiat dollars on.   12:10.30 maxbuybit1 A.   12:40.38 TechEngineer The electric cost relative to gas but I also made up enough bitcoin to cover to cover that. So.   12:57.99 maxbuybit1 Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, that makes sense and I guess the other thing is like getting people's minds to shift I mean it's hard for now like you're saying oh you know you come in in 2017 and you're looking at like mining profitability and you're thinking oh well. You know how many dollars am I going to get and and you're looking at it ah through that lens whereas you know once someone's been in bitcoin for long enough and understands this at the end of the day all they care about is how many sats can I get I don't care what the dollar value is today tomorrow a year two years you know it it matters to me long term how many sats I'm getting and so um, maybe that affects the way that people think about this in the future.   14:24.28 TechEngineer So yeah, absolutely and I mean that goes back to um you know more of a hardcore bitcoin versus a random person doesn't care I mean somebody that is just wanting to stack sats and that's important to them and that's I mean that's important to me for sure.   14:58.79 maxbuybit1 Hey.   15:02.36 TechEngineer Um, but to get this into a broader Market. It's got to be more more um profitable just in general and I mean even even for the the bitcoin miners that are very into to just stacking sats. Right Now. It's it's it's hard I mean the the profitability equation is has changed. You know you get you got the difficulty of the hash rates at all time Highs Meanwhile bitcoin's price is is down. So.   15:41.83 maxbuybit1 A.   16:11.20 TechEngineer So when you're looking at that equation. It's hard to be like yes I'm going to I want to get into mining because it looks unprofitable If you're if you're looking at the equation but mining for heat can change that equation.   16:26.91 maxbuybit1 Here.   16:45.15 maxbuybit1 Yeah, dramatically um and so what are people who you're working with and friends and family and and people around you are who aren't on bitcoin Twitter like what are they saying if they're coming round yours and they're seeing this thing and they're like what the fuck are you doing here like what are you.   17:02.26 TechEngineer So.   17:24.35 maxbuybit1 What is this crazy invention that you've got or are you starting to orange pill people around you.   17:35.92 TechEngineer Yeah, when when my friends and family see it I mean it depends on who it is you know I mean some of my friends that are more technical kind of already understand bitcoin a little bit. They're they're like Wow that's incredible that you can take a computer and harvest the heat and. Like most people had no idea that that's even possible I mean I didn't even know that was possible really a year ago either. So It's like it is like jaw-dropping even even for myself to look at it and look at this tank and be like wait. There's a computer putting off heat I'm heating my pool with a computer.. It's just like. I'm like swimming in bitcoin At this point literally. So yeah, exactly and it's so it's mind blowing to me I mean it's mind blowing to my friends and family that I tell about it and I mean yeah to some extent. It's helping to orange pill people because at at least.   19:00.75 maxbuybit1 Swimming in sets. Ah.   19:29.82 TechEngineer Opens up the conversation and they're like Wow This is so Interesting. What is this thing and I mean people are telling me like oh I should patent and it because it just looks like this crazy contraption and so it's ah it's a mix of like. Awe and interest and and and maybe a little crazy I don't know.   20:18.25 maxbuybit1 Ah, yeah, well, it's ah it certainly looks cool like um it it's just I don't know when you see something working when you see something like this.. It's so much more interesting than just like sitting down with someone and saying. Yes, There's a single bitcoin and it's really good money because of X Y and Zd and like you know the the normal sort of orange pilling that people do um I've always found like showing someone either just like sending them some bitcoin on a wallet or like showing a node running and telling them how it works and and that kind of stuff like. Tends to pique more interest but then this is that on steroids because it's like what what the fuck you're you're hitting your pool that's mental like no one. No one reads anything like that in you know in the newspapers or hears anything about. This kind of stuff in normally worlds. So. It's a real slap in the face and I think it opens the door really nicely to explain. Well yeah, it's not just some stock or something you buy and the price goes up or down like this is a system. And it's incredible for for a None reasons we could list and um, it just opens the door and and I think like whatever type of person it is if they take the time they'll find a little area that they're interested In. You know, be it privacy the economic side or.   22:30.72 TechEngineer This is.   23:00.55 maxbuybit1 You know the engineering side or whatever it is. There's always something for someone and um, yeah, it's ah it's that you know that's the great thing about bitcoin Twitter everyone can help each other and and um, they always have someone to speak to about and and go further and further. Down the rubber hole with these things and.   23:34.98 TechEngineer Yeah, absolutely and I mean and I mean speaking of the normie and their reaction to it I mean it's It's a pretty easy cell potentially eventually if these heaters are more integrated be like hey do you like? do you like free heat. Do you like free energy.   24:02.67 maxbuybit1 I.   24:12.30 TechEngineer I Mean do you like free water heaters. Do you like free pool heaters. Do you like? do you like a pool heater that pays for itself I mean nobody can say no to that right? So it's it's potentially it's a potential easy in for.   24:19.97 maxbuybit1 A.   24:32.29 maxbuybit1 Um.   24:48.58 TechEngineer Not only understanding bitcoin but also integrating mining and further decentralizing mining even to people that don't care about bitcoin.   25:10.70 maxbuybit1 And so is that something that you're trying to push now I mean I know that you ah yeah, think you're on this mining panel with John very soon. He'd mentioned is this something where you're kind of like trying to spread the word and and. You know make this a reality.   25:50.22 TechEngineer I Guess you could say it's kind of the angle that I'm working within the bitcoin ecosystem. It's an angle that I don't see pursued a lot and I and it's an angle that I think is important. Um for how I see.   26:14.70 maxbuybit1 And.   26:30.38 TechEngineer Long-term trend of of bitcoin mining and the importance of decentralizing it. So I don't don't I don't know if I'd say I'm like pushing it. But I mean like it's it's important to me and it's interesting to me and. Love what I'm building and I love the the projects I work on I Love engineering. So It's just it's fun to me and then and I'm I'm helping to I'm helping out the greater bitcoin ecosystem and it's fun to be a part of this.   27:38.47 maxbuybit1 Yeah, definitely and and getting to find other people who are iterating on this as well. Um, you know people who are taking ideas and then running with them and um, there's so many different things that you can do with heat So many useful things and so. Um, it's amazing. Like once you start looking at what people are doing and the the crazy ideas they've got like I've seen people um, using them in greenhouses I've heard people talking about um all sorts of heating not just for homes but also for like yeah hot tubs and. Yeah, obviously you're doing the pool and all sorts of things and like um I don't know where it ends like I'm sure this could be used for types of farming and other stuff. So um, you know everyone needs heat or almost everyone needs. Heat.   29:18.42 TechEngineer So yeah, there's there's a ton of applications. Um, yeah I've seen greenhouses and yeah bouncing ideas off of other people is amazing I mean bitcoin Twitter is almost kind of like a giant collective brain. Where.   29:51.57 maxbuybit1 A.   29:54.32 TechEngineer Like I can I can I can work on a ah micro part of the problem build something somebody takes what I've done and iterate upon that and solve another piece of the problem. Um, and I mean for example I built my my tank which other people had already done I Kind of. I Kind of saw what other people did and I kind of designed something around what I needed and and and customized it for myself. But I kind of iterated on what other people had done um the next step that I haven't released or talked about too much yet or I'm still in progress is The. More of the automation side of like so with a pool heater you want to increase the heat based on the temperature of the pool right? So I mean eventually you want to be able to set a set temperature.   31:32.95 maxbuybit1 Here.   31:45.86 TechEngineer Like and just make it simple and then the system just handles the background of heating or not heating So I I've talked to other people about this and somebody else. Ran with that idea and he he's ah he's a very talented developer and he was able to build an integration between the firmware and um, a microcontroller essentially and now I've been able to implement that into my system. So I have a thermostatically controlled. Environment Now. So I can set a temperature and then the the miners can actually scale up and scale down based on heat demand.   33:14.55 maxbuybit1 That's really fucking cool. So so what are they doing you you dropping the power of these machines to then drop the heat. Basically you're like under clocking or overclocking depending on the demand is that is that right.   33:37.40 TechEngineer Exactly That's exactly right.   33:45.31 maxbuybit1 And is that brains that's doing that or is that a separate bit of software or or firmware or whatever that you're using.   33:59.38 TechEngineer Yeah, so I'm using Brains Os Plus as the firmware and they have an api. Um, and that's what the integration was is reaching out to so the the integration between it's actually home assistant. Which is a home automation platform an open source home automation platform that talks to the api of Brains Os and now we can get. We can get the temperature of the chips and we can get the the hash rate and we can get a bunch of information from the minor to. Home assistant and we can also tell brains Os to tell the miner to scale up or scale down and we can do that based on any event Now. So I then set up a microcontroller with sensors that. Sense The input from the Pool. So and I now know the temperature of the pool and based on that I can have an automation that then says scale up the the miner if we need more heat which increases the wattage.   36:18.90 maxbuybit1 Here.   36:19.28 TechEngineer And therefore increases the the output of the heat and and heats faster Ideally where I see it ideally where I see it going is you would size the number of miners appropriately to the the heat.   36:35.81 maxbuybit1 That's.   36:54.82 TechEngineer Ah, destination. So say you have a fifty Thousand Gallon pool it's going to be different than a one Thousand Gallon pool you're going to need more miners. You're going to need more heat in a bigger pool obviously or in a a bigger house so you size it to the right size. Ideally, you want the miner running at an efficient wattage.   37:08.81 maxbuybit1 Um.   37:35.63 maxbuybit1 Um.   37:33.38 TechEngineer Pretty much all the time. But if say it was cold One day you could over clock quite a bit and and get more heat or you could under clock on say a hotter day so it it gives the ability to scale more so you can scale up or scale down more.   37:56.89 maxbuybit1 Here.   38:12.90 TechEngineer Using these automated integrations.   38:21.55 maxbuybit1 Are there any concerns with overclocking and under clocking and and adjusting these miners on a consistent basis in terms of the longevity. Um with these machines like gion I mean like is it. Is it possible that that could be detrimental to the lifespan of them and rather than just having them running at a consistent ah speed or you know whatever you would call that.   39:19.74 TechEngineer Yeah,, that's a good question and I mean I think in general overclocking of any chip is going to tend to decrease its lifespan. But. I Mean immersion helps a lot with that because you're you're keeping the temperatures down and I mean that's the biggest problem with overclocking is the temperature. The temperatures go higher and that's that's the killer of chips is temp is temperature. So but that being the case that's that's kind of why I said like.   40:04.71 maxbuybit1 A.   40:30.40 TechEngineer Ideally, you'd you'd keep it running at actually an efficient level or a standard level as kind of your base load and then just occasionally kind of overclock um as needed and I'd so I don't.   40:59.10 maxbuybit1 Here.   41:03.64 TechEngineer In that kind of use case I don't think it's It's bad and from what I've seen working with brainsos and the dynamic power scaling. It doesn't seem like it has any negative effect to be scaling up and scaling down on a somewhat regular basis.   41:40.69 maxbuybit1 Um.   41:42.20 TechEngineer Um, but that is a good question to actually look at the long-term impacts of that which which I haven't quite done at this point I mean that I've been running it for you know five months so it's a few months but not not years right.   42:10.63 maxbuybit1 Yeah, definitely um, but that I mean that's that's so key like having this thermostatically controlled and all you know automated is it just knows a whole new level isn't it because.   42:38.20 TechEngineer Yes.   42:44.17 maxbuybit1 You're not going to have people say like oh yeah, I'll put one of these in and then they're tweaking and fucking around with it all the time like you know people want want to put this in their pool to be at the right temperature the things to run nothing to break. They just wanted to to work. You know when the. Sort of non tinkerers start wanting these in their homes because it makes financial sense. Um, this is the kind of stuff which just completely changes the game.   43:27.62 TechEngineer Right? And and the other issue is it's got to be maintainable I mean you don't want to you don't want to have situations where it overheats and you know now we have other problems to deal with with overheating it can be a. Security arm mean. Ah it can be kind of dangerous if it overheats too much. You can have fires and lots of different things. So there there needs to be control mechanisms in place that I mean even just an emergency shutdown when overheating that requires some sort of brain.   44:13.50 maxbuybit1 A.   44:41.42 TechEngineer To to kind of control things and I mean the miners firmware usually have that kind of built in to some extent but I just don't it doesn't make me comfortable to just release like just a system without some sort of finish to it to any person that isn't.   44:44.79 maxbuybit1 A.   45:13.63 maxbuybit1 E.   45:17.26 TechEngineer Building it themselves you know So I've I've had people already like hey I want to do this on my pool I Want to do this on my hot tub and I'm just not quite there yet. But that's kind of the goal to be able to refine this system to make it more accessible to more people that are. Interested in doing this and.   45:57.87 maxbuybit1 Yeah I think there'll be a lot of people who do want to and the other thing I've wondered about for ages I don't know whether it's possible or not. But um, could you do it with a sauna. Do you think like I know that's a dry heat but would it be possible to. Do a hot tub and a sauna if someone like wanted both.   46:39.90 TechEngineer I Don't see why not I don't know a ton about Saunas but I think that would just essentially be um, changing the heat from the oil-based heat into air via a water to air heat exchanger and. Blowing it into a room to heat it up a lot and then I think Saunas are usually I mean they usually have some humidity put in or something but I think it's certainly doable. Yeah.   47:21.39 maxbuybit1 Here here.   47:33.87 maxbuybit1 Yeah.   47:45.17 maxbuybit1 So interesting. It's like once once your brain starts ticking with like these sort of ideas you cut I can't help like thinking into the future and just thinking Oh I lost you again either. Ah, you come.   48:11.64 TechEngineer So hey you just cut out for a None are you can hear me again. Okay.   48:23.59 maxbuybit1 Yeah, yeah, yeah, it seems to just cut out for a none or 2 but I was just saying I can't help my mind from running wild and like thinking where the fuck are we going to be in like 5 years with this stuff like there's so many applications for heat. It just? um. Yeah I can't help thinking that it's just going to be. You know, five years ten years from now everywhere.   49:08.98 TechEngineer I know there's there's so many applications it's it's unreal I mean I had a guy in Canada contact me. He's like yeah this this place way up here. How it's like ° all year long and they have almost free power like what can we do with this.   49:41.50 maxbuybit1 Ah, really.   49:45.40 TechEngineer I Mean it's like the the amount of the amount of areas that are cold and neat heat I mean that's that's a huge market. Yeah yeah.   50:07.77 maxbuybit1 Yeah, absolutely massive. Why is their power So so low is that like a ah dam or like Hydro or something like that.   50:22.40 TechEngineer Um, yeah, it was some ah like small mining town like old school mining town that had some old ah contract with like a hydro power plant or something like that. Um, so it was like.   50:55.51 maxbuybit1 Here here.   51:00.90 TechEngineer None cost power and they were all they're already using like electric heat. So I mean they probably just use thousands of Kilowatt hours of just electric heat already. So that's just an easy easy drop replace.   51:23.30 maxbuybit1 Here. Yeah.   51:34.78 TechEngineer I Mean it's not. It's not E It's not easy. It's but it's a it makes sense financially. It's like that's an easy equation.   51:49.81 maxbuybit1 Yeah, definitely and and for people who have cheap power. The other thing I was thinking before this call is especially now when you have like a drop drop in price and like the s nine s and some of the older hardware and those prices drop to like practically 0 Um.   52:19.90 TechEngineer Is this.   52:30.19 maxbuybit1 Presumably for you know someone who has 0 None near 0 power. It's actually going to be better than going and buying electric heaters because you can get these things for practically free and if you're heating a big space. Um, you know you can you can get a bunch of these things you know. Plug them in have them running and um, you know I'm sure if you get get enough of these people just want to get rid once they become unprofitable.   53:20.34 TechEngineer Yeah, exactly and that's kind of always been in the back of my mind too is that we could. We can definitely use older generation miners. We can keep them in service longer essentially by using them as heat sources now. Maybe you'd get you'd want to get. You know one or 2 generations old if you're installing a new ah new heater system. Just so that you wouldn't have to upgrade them for several years um obviously the the bitcoin bitcoin miners the the generations they they go quickly. Although.   54:08.95 maxbuybit1 Here.   54:37.14 TechEngineer I See that trending towards slowing down. Um the the quickness of how fast the older generation becomes obsolete I think we're reaching kind of the top of a exponential curve or a logrod and a curve of of improvements.   54:44.45 maxbuybit1 A.   55:15.56 TechEngineer In terms of hash rate and efficiency if that makes sense.   55:25.49 maxbuybit1 Yeah, yeah, yeah, um, and and do you think? Also you're going to have more players stepping in I know there's been talk of it. Um, you know I sort of believe it when I see it. But do you think that? um. People making this hardware There'll be some decentralization there and um and more optionality for sort of um yeah for for people coming in that there's not just like None big players.   56:19.64 TechEngineer Yeah, so I know there's so I know Intel is getting into the space as well as Jack Dorsey and I don't know a ton about them. But from what I understand they're attempting to make a more like modular approach.   56:35.83 maxbuybit1 Here.   56:57.58 TechEngineer To the the Asics. So instead of buying like an ant miner. You could just buy a thousand chips that you put directly into say a heater. So now we can just we don't need to like build the tank around the form factor.   57:03.51 maxbuybit1 Yeah.   57:39.39 maxbuybit1 A.   57:37.12 TechEngineer Ah, an s nineteen it can just it can just be more integrated directly into like an actual heater. They're just built right in and so.   57:58.70 maxbuybit1 Yeah, that makes a lot of sense and and like space wise that would make that would be much better presumably.   58:08.84 TechEngineer So yeah, so I mean that's kind of where I see it going longer term is it. It'll be very integrated.   58:27.13 maxbuybit1 Yeah, because the the other thing is like if you're getting these ah the hardware as it's built now when you're then putting it into Immersion. You're presumably like taking these fans off or bypassing them somehow because they're not needed and so there's there's a load of stuff that's. Built around it. That's actually not necessary so it seems quite wasteful. Um, yeah, like or not as efficient as it could be so that that would make sense if they did it that way.   59:25.64 TechEngineer Yeah, absolutely we're we're kind of repurposing a product for something. It wasn't really intended for. But if we can redesign it from the ground up as a heater then then it's a different equation altogether. But I mean.   59:47.57 maxbuybit1 A.   59:58.44 TechEngineer That's a whole other scale. That's you know, probably 5 10 years out I would think so in in in the shorter term. Um, it's interesting to see where we can go with repurposing these things for heat applications.   01:00:27.75 maxbuybit1 So you obviously spend loads of time thinking about bitcoin and mining and everything in the space like do you have any thoughts on where we're going like if you're looking out into the future. You've said obviously you know the money's fucked. You think that this system is. Very beautifully designed and it obviously has grabbed your attention hard because most people wouldn't be building what you're building unless they really cared. But do you sort of you know if you if you let your mind wander Where do you think we're going to be in None ears What? What? do you think is going to be happening in this space.   01:01:40.10 TechEngineer Yeah, it's a good question. Um I I hope for a bitcoin standard eventually I think it that it needs to happen I believe that I mean obviously I don't know how or when it's going to happen or. If. There's going to be some other intervention that slows it down or I don't know but it needs to happen. So I mean and that's why I want to get kind of the mining infrastructure prepared. Because when it happens it's just going to happen and nobody's going to be ready for it. So I mean coming from as a network engineer a network security engineer like you want to build a system that's secure ready to go. So when the load comes. It's just ready to go and it's safe and secure So for bitcoin the way I see it overall is like it needs to be highly decent. The mining needs to be highly decentralized so that there there are not attack vectors of like. Like say a political organization getting a bunch of big mining operations to like work together or shut down or do a 51% attack. There's a lot of things that can happen. But if it's more integrated into like so heaters all around the world.   01:04:34.85 maxbuybit1 Here.   01:04:43.46 TechEngineer And nobody has control or now it's now it's more secure from my mind.   01:05:03.35 maxbuybit1 Definitely so. That's a concern for you as like this centralization of the mining. Um I think that's reasonable I mean you you only have to look through history to see that like these people will do pretty much anything to protect their interests. And it's not that hard when you you know these these big these big miners are sitting ducks basically and if they're threatened or co-opted or blackmailed or whatever happens to them. They will fold. Um, you know a lot of these. Guys are going to be very fee outminded. Not everyone is here to say right? fuck we need to do this to to literally like just to save the world pretty much is like a lot of people will be in it just to say well I want my profits and you know I'm I'm going to be too scared if I'm threatened and and I will comply and. And that's my fear with it with a lot of these bigger miners. So I'm totally with you. There is that um the more we can decentralize things the better and um, also like you know I don't like this move where there's this so much power going to a specific country. It would be nice. Um. Yeah, be nice to see it spread out a little bit because it was like you know everyone was worried about China having all the hash power and or majority of it then it's gone a lot of it's gone over to America and it's like well if if they're ah losing reserve currency status and. They're concerned about bitcoin you don't really know what they could potentially do.   01:08:17.18 TechEngineer Yeah, and I mean I can see in the future I mean if if bitcoin becomes a standard like there could be ah, a war on bitcoin mining control like you control the blockchain you control kind of the world If that's the monetary standard like think of how.   01:08:52.97 maxbuybit1 Yeah.   01:08:57.22 TechEngineer Impactful that is I mean and yeah I pose the question of um decentralization actually in a mining panel at um at a bitcoin conference recently. To 1 of the the big miners and I just kind of threw it out there that like this is my concern of um that I see that I want to see mining more decentralized and I did I did like his answer. He kind of said you know we need we need both we need small operations we need large operations I mean the large operations can scale can scale with the growth of the of the asset. Um, and he also said that it it is important to him to to decentralize and.   01:10:08.53 maxbuybit1 A.   01:10:39.38 TechEngineer And they are decentralized from the perspective of having mines in multiple different countries in different continents in different power. Ah utility jurisdictions and that's that's a good thing I mean having having 1 big miner that has mines in 4 different continents. That's.   01:11:04.75 maxbuybit1 A.   01:11:20.75 maxbuybit1 Yeah, definitely.   01:11:18.44 TechEngineer Somewhat decentralized um us but still if if you know in 10 years when you know if if a whole if the most powerful government in the world at the time says you know what minor I want you to you're gonna shut down or we're gonna nuke you like that. That's.   01:11:50.49 maxbuybit1 Here.   01:11:56.64 TechEngineer That's the potential threat in the future. But if we have ah None heaters all over the world. It's it's a different threat.   01:12:17.77 maxbuybit1 Yeah, definitely. Um, yeah, it's definitely um, a potential issue. The other thing that I've been saying to people um is you know with with all the crazy stuff that's going on in the world and and so many people who are struggling to pay bills and so many small businesses that have. Being forced to close with all the Covid nonsense and everything else that's gone on in the world and there's a lot of people who are pretty desperate and can but barely afford to keep the lights on and I've been saying wouldn't it make sense for some of these smaller businesses like you know like a small garage or someone who's who's barely surviving.   01:13:11.54 TechEngineer And.   01:13:36.50 maxbuybit1 You can write off the cost of your energy and so effectively you can do like sort of pirate mining where you might need heat in your garage or your your business small business. And so if people are getting these old s Nine s or stuff the hardware. That's basically cost nothing um and they can write off the cost of their power Anyway, then suddenly these people actually become competitive because these huge mining operations get access to. Very very cheap money. They they have access to capital they they have lots of um options on like power contracts and generally they can drive their costs much lower because of economies of scale. But when you have these ah these smaller guys who are saying well I'm getting fucked from every angle. Can write off the cost of the power Anyway. So It's zero and I can get this old hardware for practically zero like it suddenly starts to become an absolute no-brainer and there are None of businesses like that around the world who could benefit from it. Um, so Like. You have any thoughts on that kind of stuff and um, how we could maybe make it a bit more accessible for more normal people. You know so they don't have the headache of worrying about setting it up and and understanding that this is actually potentially yeah. Could save them some money.   01:16:30.40 TechEngineer So yeah, absolutely I do and I don't I don't know if you saw a recent post I did about my Tesla solar grid plus powerwall and how I'm using that to my advantage. Um, but basically the concept is. Um, dynamic dynamic power scaling ah to work around time of service agreements with power companies. So here in Nevada um, the highest. Power consumption usages between 1 pm and 7 pm when everybody is running their air conditioning. So the the power grid is at its at its peak need at that point. So what they do is incentivize. There's an optional payment plan that you can opt into as a homeowner to basically.   01:17:45.15 maxbuybit1 A.   01:18:11.86 TechEngineer During that one to 7 pm period the price like quadruples. But then the rest of the entire year of the price is half price. So I opted into this this power plan and I get half price energy all the time except for this one time.   01:18:21.49 maxbuybit1 Here here.   01:18:46.31 maxbuybit1 A.   01:18:46.46 TechEngineer And now all we got to do is use some automation and I actually use my Tesla power walls which are the batteries and I can actually I can actually sell power back to the grid at a much higher rate and reduce my consumption during the the peak time.   01:19:00.59 maxbuybit1 A.   01:19:24.20 TechEngineer And what you're doing is essentially filling in the valleys of power demand for the energy jurisdiction and so for example, I'm I'm actually selling power back.   01:19:35.71 maxbuybit1 That makes a lot of sense.   01:19:56.34 TechEngineer Between None and 7 pm for like ¢22 a kilowatt or Twenty Eight cents kilowatt hour and then the rest of the time I'm using power at like None a kilowatt hour so in my that's my jurisdiction but in general. Power jurisdictions have a problem of the peak demand is only a short period of time but they have to build their energy grid to meet the peak demand. So the rest of the time they just have empty space of of unused demand. So I want to try to integrate.   01:21:04.19 maxbuybit1 A.   01:21:11.86 TechEngineer Further into that and basically miners can turn off and and on quickly and I mean riots riot released a video recently about how they're doing it in in their big minds. They're essentially powering down when when the Texas power grid needs.   01:21:53.71 maxbuybit1 Here.   01:21:51.64 TechEngineer More power so integrating with with the the power companies will be good in general for the overall robustness of the power grid but also have the benefit of decreasing costs for the bitcoin mining.   01:22:15.95 maxbuybit1 Yeah.   01:22:29.26 TechEngineer Because they can incentivize it in different ways.   01:22:41.37 maxbuybit1 Yeah, um, because yeah, yeah, exactly because you can overproduce and there's always going to be demand. Um, which which presumably then might incentivize them to create more power as well because they know that there's always someone who's going to be that buyer of last resort. Which is going to make everything run a bit smoother.   01:23:22.76 TechEngineer Right? ah.   01:23:36.27 maxbuybit1 It's mind-blowing stuff some.. It's absolutely mindlowing. So Um I mean obviously mining is your thing but outside of the mining stuff is there anything else that your. Particularly looking at within bitcoin at the moment are you playing around with lightning. Do you mess around with them thing like that you into your privacy stuff or you just solely focused on mining at the moment.   01:24:23.84 TechEngineer I am into everything I Just don't have time for everything so I would say so I've been focusing on these mining for heat projects. But I do run my own full bitcoin Node. I'm playing around with lightning privacy is very important to me Security is very important to me I have a lot to add into the space in terms of like network security. So like as a network engineer I'm able to build my home network in a way that is more like an enterprise. Network with security in mind different V lands. Um, there's a lot you can do to really secure secure things and then you can do things like use vpns and make your bitcoin node anonymous um and run an over tour. So I'm I'm.   01:26:07.99 maxbuybit1 Here.   01:26:15.92 TechEngineer Doing all those things. Um I don't have enough time in the day to explore as much as I would like but those are that's that's the other aspect that I I want to explore more is kind of the the security side of of ah of bitcoin and bitcoin mining.   01:26:54.21 maxbuybit1 Yeah, well I Really look forward to seeing what you come up with there. That's gonna be more and more important for people who are mining at home and are putting more of their net worth into this and um privacy is something that we really really focus on with this show because. You know if shit hits the fan and people know what you're doing and ah, there's a load of have nots and people who can't feed themselves. You do not want everyone to know where you are and what you've got.   01:27:49.22 TechEngineer And yeah, absolutely ah privacy is is a big concern to me and especially with how how the world has gone in the last year to 2 years and privacy is is so important now even more even more than before.   01:28:24.79 maxbuybit1 Absolutely well. Um, that's probably a good place to wrap things up I don't want to take too much of your Time. Youve got some awesome Stuff. You're building but I've really enjoyed chatting you and um so pleased to see that you're pushing this space forward and. Making some incredible stuff I'm sure loads of people will find it useful and um, as and when you you know start working on this privacy stuff and the home security stuff I'd love to him or I think that loads of people will benefit from that. So. Yeah, just want to say thanks for coming on and everything you're doing really? yeah, really do appreciate it.   01:29:40.00 TechEngineer Thanks sounds good. It's been. It's been a pleasure and good to talk to you. Thanks Max All right have a good one.   01:29:50.93 maxbuybit1 Awesome or I may I'll speak soon.

When was the last time you thought about that topic...Your Purpose? These are important topics and discussion you should be having with yourself... ...What's My Life's Purpose ...What should I really be doing with my Purpose in Life & Business I've found in my life that it's super Important to Organize Your Life Around a Purpose ...without purpose life is out of control ...with purpose you can steer the right direction There are so many benefits of purpose ...life purpose brings peace of mind ...gives you inspiration to make your individual goals cohesive ...creates structure for your goals and daily activities   Does everyone have a purpose inside them?...Yes Can you have more than one purpose?...Absolutely Can your purpose change over time?...Yes   I believe it is important to learn and develop your purpose, so you do not just blindly adopted others purpose (people or companies)   So, what is your purpose and how to do identify it? Well, purpose can feel like a calling inside you. ...might be difficult to pin point, but you recognize it when you see it. ...most likely you do have a feeling or direction already.   The Key is learning to organize your life (align it) around your purpose That's when you see some changes start to happen with your fulfillment and results   Don't chase the PERFECT Life Purpose...there isn't one.   Some part of you already know the direction of your purpose. But, if your purpose still feels hidden in your subconscious... ...its time to start being proactive and take action around your feelings ...otherwise your conscious mind will just stay busy and distracted.   A Life's Purpose is simple: 1- a short phrase or sentence at the most 2- life's purpose is not an action plan.  it is the "reason" behind plan   Examples to become a world-class violinist to help people in need to bring joy and happiness artist might have a purpose to challenge the way people think business leaders might be to create a profitable business to impact the world   Each of these purposes' can be accomplished through creating and aligning a strategy, goal setting and consistent action in your everyday life.  The details of your plan are ultimately driven by the "reason."   Couple things to keep in mind.. -purpose is a merely a guide for living your life -you can align your life around it -it doesn't have to be your full time obsession -your purpose can change as you live life and change yourself and your circumstances   Ultimately, everyone's purpose is extremely unique because none of us has the same talents, skills, needs, concerns and ambitions and interests.   The best way to integrate your Life's Purpose into your Destiny Planning is to Create a Personal Mission Statement. ...it can be just a couple sentences you create around your purpose. ...it will help drive your thoughts, actions, and life overall.   Personal Mission Statement Exercise ...I'll post a pdf you can download in the show notes.   Questions to set you up... ...what is the purpose of your life? ...why are you here? ...what do you want to experience in life? ...how do you want to feel on a daily basis?   Personal Mission Statement Worksheet to help you guide your thoughts, create your plan, and see your Mission from several angles and perspectives...   Answer each of these questions with some careful thought.   My Life's Purpose is?.... (become the best version of myself) My Empowering Self-Definition is?... (whatever my mind can conceive and believe it can achieve with focus and discipline) I Want My Life to be an Answer to What Question?... (how can i share my talents with the world and create change and impact in the world) My Mission in Life is?... (to inspire and motivate others to create and live their ultimate destiny) The Sort of Influence on Others I'd Like to be is?... (I want to inspire, influence and support the people I love and those around me)   I hope these thoughts on Life's Purpose, Destiny and a Personal Mission Statement will help give you some direction, confidence and assistance in creating a better blueprint for your life.   Ultimately, as I said before, My goal is to help inspire you to CREATE and LIVE your ultimate destiny.   Thanks for listening today.  I'll see you again tomorrow.

Épisode 804 : Ok, votre portée Instagram est en chute libre. Vous postez des trucs cool, au bon format mais rien n'y fait… Après avoir tout essayé, vous commencez à émettre une hypothèse. Et si… ET si vous aviez été Shadowbanned.Ca veut dire quoi shadowban ?Le shadowbanning c'est quand une plateforme met un compte sur le banc de toucheGlobalement votre compte ou ses contenus deviennent plus difficiles à trouver sur la plateforme.Evidemment, le shadowban entraîne une baisse immédiate de l'engagement et de la portée de vos contenu.Pourquoi shadow ? Et bien parce que tout ça se fait dans l'ombre.Dans le principe, votre compte n'est pas supprimé, il est bien là, sauf qu'il devient quasi invisible.Vous n'êtes pas informé non plus par la plateforme, vous ne recevez pas un petit mail ou une notification.En gros vous êtes banni mais sans que ce soit officiel.L'exemple Violante ViandeOn se souvient du compte humoristico satirique violente viandePlusieurs fois le compte a été shadowbanned, à l'époque je me souviens, quand j'avais envie de m'en payer une bonne tranche, impossible de le trouver, il me fallait faire le chemin inverse en retrouvant un post que j'avais partagé à un pote pour y accéder ou taper l'url exact sur mon desktop.Une légendeMais officiellement le shadowban sur Instagram n'existe pas !Ca fait tellement d'année qu'on en parle que comme toute légende urbaine le shadowban est devenu une réalité.Oui, sauf qu'ici il n'y a rien de moins sûr.Officiellement, Instagram ne pratique pas le Shadowbanning. En 2020, Adam Mosseri s'exprimait sur ce sujet et démentait catégoriquement.Il expliquait que finalement tout était beaucoup plus simple que ça.« Parfois vous avez de la chance et parfois non. »Alors, tout ça serait une histoire de chance ? Certainement pas ! Si Instagram n'aime pas le terme « Shadowban », la plate-forme impose bien des restrictions à certains comptes et contenus en fonction d'une longue liste de facteurs.Quelles peuvent être les causes du "Shadowbanning" ?Les hashtags interditsLa présence de certains hashtags qui seraient prohibés par Instagram, notamment car certains peuvent contenir des contenus sensibles.Certains bien sûr sont très orientés Sex and drugs mais d'autres peuvent paraitre bancals comme #kissing ou #instasport. Tout simplement parce qu'ils ont été trop détournés ou trop assimilés à des tendances douteuses.Au passage, le site Kicksta liste ces # à éviter.L'achat massif et pas très discret de fansQue ça ait été fait consciemment ou indirectement, Instagram déteste que vous fassiez gonfler votre compteur avec des fans de synthèse.Avec des techniques illégales, certains comptes sont poussés au shadowbanEx: Balance ton Agency a qui ton a acheté des milliers de faux comptes pour que l'algorithme détecte la supercherie et bloque le compte. Quoi faire dans ce cas précis ? Mettre son compte en privé et nettoyer… a coup de 50 comptes par jour, ça peut être très long..La répétition de commentairesSi répondre à tout le monde est un indispensable du CM, il ne faut pas pour autant s'amuser à copier coller la même réponse à tout le monde. Les algorithmes détectent en quelque sorte le « duplicate content » et peuvent le pénaliser.Les contenus InappropriésForcément le sujet est controversé, car comment déterminer ce qui est controversé de ce qui ne l'est pas. Certains sujets incitant à la violence, des images de nudité, les sujets et contenus un peu trop explicite sur la consommation de drogue.Cette approche d'instagram fait partie du programme Remove, Reduce, Inform mis en place en 2019 visant à Supprimer, réduire et Informer le public qui est confronté à ces contenus.Les contenus UGC dans la tourmenteIl semblerait qu'Adam ne les aime plus trop et qu'il veuille forcer les comptes à utiliser les fonctionnalités de partenariatLes contenus créés dans le cadre d'un partenariatSi votre post fait la promotion d'un produit dans le cadre d'un partenariat rémunéré, surtout n'oubliez pas de le mentionner.

Welcome back all! Today I am going to be exploring more into my new found passion of Improv comedy classes and why I am here to tell all of you, to try one out in your own hometown. On episode 158 I delved into some deep content about facing your fears and sitting with discomfort. I directly referenced Phil and I pushing past our awkwardness and joining Improv classes. It turns out I wasn't quite done with the subject, and in fact will probably record another podcast about how to make meaningful relationships as you age, which Improv will be involved in that discussion as well. What can I say... When I am into something... I am INTO it. :) Aside from being a fun activity to participate in, Improv has helped me personally communicate better with others, and myself. My brain feels sharper than it has in years, and Phil and I's communication has improved A LOT. We always considered ourselves great at talking, but have realized over the years that you can be great at talking, but NOT at communicating. We talk over one another. We blame and judge. We get defensive. We assume and project. I am sure we are not the only ones. When you are with someone for a long period of time you develop habits, and patterns. These habits became apparent to me when we started taking Improv together and began working through some practices and games. We weren't listening outside of class as well as we could have been. Improv helped us pause and instead of waiting for our turn to speak, to really listen to what the other was saying. It also revealed long standing patterns of blame. If we were in a scene together, we instantly fell into "Well, you didn't do this." or "Why are you blaming me? You weren't there either!." Sort of scenario. Those negative emotions were easy to access as we built our pretend world for a scene. For example- A married couple at a furniture store that can't agree on a couch. Normal, right? Let me be clear here in saying that Improv comedy classes didn't entirely solve our problems. I am not saying it is therapy or a replacement for therapy. It just offered a lovely way of actually PRACTICING how to communicate better. You learn from therapy and discover how to better communicate. You may notice your own patterns or you might read concepts from books on how to shift the way you communicate. You read it, but to actually put these good habits into practice in a fun way allows you to shine light on where they pop up and strengthen better communication muscles so that you deeply know it. It was shortly after our Phil and I's first few classes that we began to unfold. The blame game disappeared. We were listening to one another AND then most beautiful thing happened naturally... We were playing again. Truly playing. This past year with the death of my sister Nina has been a rough one, and I have actively been rediscovering how to play and find joy. Life is hard. It is dark, and it can sometimes be easy to stay dark. It is hard to be playful after tragedy, but man is it needed. We began being lighter and not just in class. The affects lingered on throughout the week and seeped into our days and evenings, and we could not wait until the following week to play again with our new found friends! At least for us Improv classes are pure childlike joy. It is like camp for adults! Wanna try it? Let's chat with a veteran on the show! I am excited to announce that I have a guest for today's show, something I haven't had in over a year and a half! Feels good to speak to another human on MOTM. On today's episode I bring on Justin Borak. Justin is an Improv teacher and actor, and has worked in Chicago for several years performing in shows at Second City, iO, and the Annoyance. Some popular and prestigious Improv hot spots around the country. I am so excited to chat with him about how he thinks Improv spurs creativity and playfulness, how he thinks Dungeons and Dragons blends so well with Improv Comedy, and how inclusive it is in different cities. We also discuss how diverse of a crew you get when you join a class. Age, race, all walks of life join in these classes and it is a delightful way to expand your perspective and friend group. We also walk you into your first improv class and tells you what to expect, so you don't have to be nervous. This is me trying to break down what happens in a typical class for all those who are curious but are really scared to walk into something crazy. It is harder to write, so listen to the episode to get a better idea. A Typical First Improv Class- You sit in the chairs waiting for everyone to arrive. Maybe you say hi to someone, maybe you don't. The instructor introduces him/herself and they have everyone then stand in a circle and play some games. Most of these games are typical icebreaker games. Remembering people's names, passing the red ball around, Zip, Zap, Zop. They are games that are played and learned very quickly and intended to warm you up, to allow you to get comfortable so that you soon realize you are just having fun like you used to do when you were a kid. No pressure or expectation, only fun. After that they may explain how Improv works, you might do some quick short practices with others. One of my most favorite practices the instructor lead early on - It was myself and another classmate on stage. The instructions were that we were making a bed together, and we couldn't talk until the instructor tells us to. We start and just begin to act out making a bed. Folding sheets, fluffing pillows, etc. The real subject of this scene isn't the bed though it is the relationship between the characters and what is going on. What is their relationship to each other. Is the body language angry, happy, sad? I liked the exercise because when you begin Improv it is hard to find words. Silence is easier and it relaxed me. It allowed me to use my body to express how I was feeling. On your first class you may also start to delve into something called Monologue Deconstruction. I like to think of this as basically storytelling time. The audience throws out a word. Say "Beach." and one person comes forward to tell a story that relates somehow to a beach. Trying to add in as much detail as possible. Then from this story and the details, the classmates start to create scenes. That is about it, folks. Sound scary? It shouldn't. I have honestly found the most easy going people to be in my Improv classes. Everyone there is showing up to have a good time and learn some fun and funky new skill. Creativity sparks because everyone is showing up for one another to build the best scene possible. It is the ultimate co-op game where everyone wins. You ready to try it? YOU SHOULD! Better yet, bring your partner, friend or family member along with you and watch your communication start to evolve and your playfulness ignite!   Yoga Sailing Retreats for 2023 Registration is OPEN!!!

"Steel City Improv Theater teaches and performs Long-Form improv comedy. In long-form improvisation, a group of improvisers take one suggestion from the audience and perform an entirely made-up show, complete with multiple scenes, characters, and ridiculous spectacles, bound only by its creators' imaginations. Steel City Improv Theater (a.k.a. the SCIT), teaches Applied Improvisation. The SCIT knows that improv classes make you more than just funny.  By applying the principles of improv to your life,  you can become a better parent, mentor, entrepreneur, employee and friend.  Improv teaches you to deal with the unexpected in life. You become a better listener, more positive person, and improve your ability to truly live in the moment. Steel City Improv Theater's philosophy is best summed up in three words: “Listen. Commit. Play.” The SCIT combined the best practices from improv training found at New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles improv theaters into the SCIT Philosophy. Listening can be a hard skill to master, but, by staying in the moment can open up a world of possibilities. Accepting others' ideas is difficult, but committing to our own ideas can be an even bigger challenge. With improv training, we learn to break through the inner critic that normally stops us. With a sense of play, we find an endless sense of possibility and inspiration. When our teammates have that same sense of imagination, it makes the word “failure” seem less scary and more exciting. For a safe space to step out of your comfort zone, come listen, commit, and play at Steel City Improv Theater!"

You've even questioned yourself as to how you could have grown into these thoughts. Am I crazy? When did I begin to think differently? Why do people intend Brandon Handley 0:12 to one? Hey, their Spiritual Dope What's up I got a special guest on for you today it is Morgana Rae she is a 20 time international number one best selling author and mentor coach, as he's regarded to be the world's number one authority on relationship with money. Her groundbreaking approach to love centered wealth building has featured her on the Wall Street Journal, Yahoo Finance, all the major television networks coast to coast radio and hundreds more. We're gonna fans call her the money goddess, because of the many documented stories of clients manifesting unexpected income of hundreds 1000s 10s of 1000s, hundreds of 1000s even over a million dollars, within hours of changing their relationship with money, a pioneer in personal development for over 27 years, we're gonna write speakers and coaches from a desire to empower idealistic entrepreneurs, artists, healers, and humanitarians to have a big impact in the world and the heal the rift between heart, spirit and money. You know, so thank you so much for being on today. It's funny, because, you know, Wall Street Journal is great, right? Yahoo Finance all the major telecom and the one that of course, gets me I'm like coast to coast. What? So, so awesome to have you on here today. Morgana Rae 1:36 Thank you so much. Yeah, coast to coast was fun. And you get a lot of time, and it's in the middle of the night. So my husband's what was listening from home, because I have to do it on the landline and we don't have any landlines at home. And he says you are breathing really heavily during that interview, because I was just pacing the whole time to keep my energy up. But it was it was a great experience. It's I mean, Toshinori it's amazing. Brandon Handley 2:07 So right, how is this, you know, legends in the field, and that you've been with quite a few other legends as well. But that's the one that that's the one that jumped out at me and was super excited about that. So I usually like to start this off, we're going on with the whole idea that you and I, we are conduits for Source Energy, right? And there's somebody listening on the other end of this podcast today that needs a message that can only be delivered through you through source energy to them. What does that message today Morgana Rae 2:40 the people that I speak to that I'm speaking to right now, like, I'm not interested in the sociopaths, so we're going to leave them out of the conversation. But spiritual people, the do gooders of the world, the artists, the innovators, the healers, the humanitarians, these are the people who have the most painful relationship with money. By the way, you know, very rich people have pain too. And I've coached on the total extreme ends. But I'm speaking really here to the spiritual do gooders who really just want to help. And that is such a different mindset and relationship with money than say, the entrepreneur who is happy as a clam, to make lots of money harming people. I was in a mastermind years ago real mix of people, but I felt very out of place. Because one of the speakers was going on and on about how owning shell companies allowed him to sell potentially defective helmets and potentially defective guns. But if he got sued, he was protected because he owned a shell company. And that's not what I want to bring into the world. That's not what I support. I felt really, really alienated by that. So that's that, oh, do this make money? Yeah, that's an equation, but that hurts. That hurts. For those of us who care and honestly, that mindset is threatening the very existence of human life, and a lot more on planet Earth, the whole like Exxon, hiding all its data about climate change. That by the way, is also not a healthy relationship with money if you are so scared of not making a certain number milestone that you're willing to risk life on earth that is not a place of abundance. So what I want and you You know, I tend to just channel as I speak, and I never ever, like script or plan what I'm going to say, but I do know what I want to teach. And I want to today teach how to get love, and your highest values and your most divine self, and money playing on the same team as partners, not adversaries. So that's, that's what I want to focus on. Brandon Handley 5:34 Now, I love that. And you're right. It's so it's funny. We've gotten to a point now, I think, and you know, the money exchange being currency exchange being an energy exchange, where people can't even say the word money, right? Like I, I'm literally, what I'm doing today is working for money, bless you. And bless you. I think the third time is like you get a wish. Granted, it's the the CIO, is interesting for a minute, because people came to say, you know, I want to work for money says like, oh, well, you know, we're gonna, there's going to be an energy exchange, meaning there's going to be money exchanged, but like, not being comfortable enough to just say, I charge $5. Now, right? And so being able to get that to the point where you say, money is spiritual, and it's not necessarily just a material thing. So I sounds like that's kind of what we get to, or at least get them all on the same plane if it what's your approach there? Morgana Rae 6:39 Well, money, I think really highlights or magnifies what's already there. And where I started kind of my origin story on this path of working with money as a pain door to spiritual growth and personal development, and also clients making a lot of money is that I had such shame and guilt about charging to help people, I really felt like I was taking their money and that was harming them. And that was a bad thing when I really was here to help. And lo and behold, I became really, really good at not making money like, like Olympic medal caliber ability to repel money from people who wanted to hire me. And at my lowest point, I was living in Los Angeles, one of the most expensive cities in the world, a million dollars will buy you a teardown. And I was making $100 a month with half a dozen coaching certifications, a bunch of celebrity clients, mountains of testimonials really, really dialed in marketing and the website and the brochure and the business cards and the tagline and l o ads, and the vision boards and the affirmations, and the local la healers who kind of wave their hands and change your money, DNA and all of it. None of it worked for me. None of it worked for me. I had to get to the secret reason that I was repelling money what was inside of me that was pushing it away intentionally, completely unconsciously. Consciously, I was going to those awful networking meetings and and getting more and more certifications and just taking more and more classes on sales and this and that. And I took a class on overcoming sales objections and I'm like a super good students. So seven people let me get my fingers right seven people in a row. I overcame their objections, which means that they said I can't afford it, or I don't have time. But I really want to there are these like words that you say and I overcame their objections, and I kid you not. Those same seven people did not show up and did not pay. And I sitting here now, I actually don't believe in overcoming people's objections. So I believe in letting people make a decision for themselves. They know what is right for them better than I you know, it's not my decision to make what they can afford and what they can't afford. And I don't like manipulating people I actually tried to talk people out of hiring me and see if they jump over that and convince me then we have a client but that's, that's today. So back there. I hit a really just deep moment of despair. I you know, when I got that seven to no show, that was when I completely ran out of hope. Like I was doing all the metaphysical stuff. I was doing all the practical stuff, and I've been doing it for a long time. And I want to make a point here that if you ever find yourself doing everything you're supposed to be doing, taking everybody's classes real Applying it doing everything you're told to do, and do this. And you do this nears, you keep doing everything you're supposed to be doing and you aren't getting the results that you desire and deserve. It is my opinion based on my own experience and coaching 1000s of clients that you are probably unconsciously protecting us yourself from what you're pursuing. And you're not crazy, you're not a failure, when we dig deep, you will find that you have really, really good reasons, good solid reasons to protect yourself. And we need to make what you want safe. It has to be safe. And it has to align with your values or you will always be like running into a brick wall. And just driving yourself crazy. But it's amazing how quickly and dramatically things change. When what you want become safe. By the way, I just, you know, listening to like, share my bio is always you know, kind of a meta experience to hear somebody, you know, describe you and I had a client a week ago, Friday call me up who went on my very intense spiritual tiny, one week money goddess retreat that I keep to like three to six, sometimes eight women, so that I can coach everybody individually really deeply. And I coached her in September. And she called me a week and a half ago to tell me that she made $1.2 million between September and Brandon Handley 11:44 that's women only, like that's how the guys can jump in. Yeah, Morgana Rae 11:47 everything else I do has guys, that's just the one thing. But so that was like between the end of September and mid February. So I'm not even going to count how many months I think it's like it's not many, a couple million dollars, not a lot. And by and she is a spiritual teacher. So it can be Hi, Mike, I have like a raw food coach multi seven figures, like I get really weird, brilliant people. Even even the like, even the sciency ones, the big the big data lady is also into magic. And there's a data analyst in Australia who talks to dead people. So that's that that's my crowd. Okay, so I'm in this really dark, horrible place, just I don't even want to live anymore because it feel and I'm rushing through this really quickly because I want to get to content and teaching. But when you know what you're here to do, finally, right, and you have this gift, especially if you're a healer or an artist, and you have this gift that has to come out. And you can't make a living at it. It feels like you're being rejected by the universe itself. And it feels cruel, because you're doing everything you were told to do, and you aren't getting it and it feels sadistic and mean, and it's like I don't even want to play. And that's where I was. And I'm speaking to any of you who know what that's like, now, Pastor center? Brandon Handley 13:21 I'll tell you no, it's like, right. I mean, it's, you know, think my first round of coaching was like that. I'm like, wow, you know, I've got all the right things I'm doing. I'm doing all the right things, saying all the right things, Jones the right places and all this stuff, like, you know, and then you know, I guess it gets to a point where definitely a gift has to come out. And like you're saying like, well, universe is rejecting I know, I know, at that point, like I'm doing something wrong, if it doesn't feel like it's an alignment. And you know, the values aren't aligned, and you keep throwing up against the same thing. So what hasn't changed? Morgana Rae 13:57 Yeah, there really wasn't anything left to change in my doing. And so I'm in this place where I can't afford anything. But I still have a coach can't afford rent, but I still have a coach, thank goodness. Because that's what changed my life. Very shortly after hitting this really horrible place, I think it was this the next day, because we're talking now a couple decades ago and every decade it gets a little fuzzier. I had a session with my coach, great guy who had been making suggestions really, really wonderful coach and I would do everything and nothing was shifting and we were like, didn't know why. And that day when I was in such a helpless, sad, angry, despairing place that inspired something in him to come out that just told total game changer. And he asked me this really weird question. He asked me if your money was a person who would your money be. And instantly, I saw exactly who my money was being. And it was this big, scary, dirty, violent biker dude who terrified me. Like, by the way, I always feel like I have to apologize to bikers at this moment. It's not you. It's this this one. Like, stole that the long sideburns and you know, the wife beater shirt and the tattoos, but there was something about him that was just really mean and dangerous that I couldn't be with. And I instantly saw myself at like a live event. So I could have my eye on him every moment hyper vigilant to create maximum distance between the two of us. And that was my lightbulb moment. Oh, my God, that's what I was doing. I was creating distance between money and myself as if money was going to kill me. Completely unconsciously. Because daily, I was taking all the actions I was supposed to take. A friend of mine says it's not your fault. It's your responsibility. Which is awesome. So there's no blame here. But because this relationship is your responsibility, you have the ability to respond and change it. Yay. So it was so clear to me in this moment that this biker, there was no way that I could have money in my life. If it was this guy, it just wasn't going to work. So I had to get rid of the biker, I had to get rid of what I now call the Money Monster. Which, by the way, has nothing to do with money. Like we can start with financial crimes and the experiences scarcity are people who exploit and do terrible things in the name of money or when you you know we can we can start with your own financial traumas are of your family or ancestors, we can start there. But that's not that's, that's just the door. That's just the beginning. What the reason money is such a painful subject, it's so taboo, like we can talk about sex, but we can't really talk about money and numbers. And there's so much shame and fear around it is because money represents really the deepest, deepest pains and challenges and vulnerabilities of being human. It represents love, are we loved? Does the universe love me? Am I wanted value am I valued? What is valued? What are my values? Its value? And bottom line safety? Like? Do I even get to exist? Am I treated like a human being can I eat? Can I get medical care? Do I have a right to exist? Is the world a safe loving place that values may or not, that is exactly what money represents. And so that's where you want to dig up the root cause of this Money Monster. So I have I didn't know that at the time, I had to kind of figure it out and reverse engineer it. So I could do this for other people later. I just happened to be in that horrible moment of experience, which made it very easy. So Brandon Handley 18:34 yeah, I mean, you are in the ultimate survival mode, right? You're in the ultimate survival mode or your quote unquote, like rock bottom. And, you know, I always talk about the difference between, you know, the people that are at the rock bottom, they have nothing left to lose, or the guy won't go try this other thing, right? It's like the Janis Joplin song, nothing left to lose, right? And then you've got two healthy normals, right? Which are the people that that are that are there, okay, where they're at, but they're not okay, right. They don't want they don't want to change it. But like, it's sometimes it's easier to lose everything so that you can go for exactly what you want. Morgana Rae 19:10 Well, I believe and I call my process alchemy, like, you know, so, law of attraction, fans take a deep and cleansing breath. You'll get to have your positive thinking in a little while, but right now, it's not going to help you. It'll keep you stuck. So what we want to create as maximum polarity alchemy is the transmutation of lead, lead in human experience into gold. And the first thing we have to do is separate them completely and focus only on the lead and it's like a slingshot and it creates a tension that catapults us where we want to go but first we have to go really, really deep into the lead into that experience that we don't want to have, because that's what motivates change. And when you're in neutral Reality I call it money mode. It's kind of you're stuck. Can we change? Yeah, but first we have to dig, we have to dig a lot deeper into your reason to need to change. So that is the, like, glorious, sacred opportunity of these these hard moments. And that's where I am, kind of take a different tack than the way Law of Attraction is taught. I'm not saying hi vibes only I'm saying, Let us you know, low vibes are part of life, they are sacred, they're useful, they actually have a tremendous power in them, if we use them, you've been through the experience, let's not waste it, don't come back another life and have to do it again. Let's get it now. And just milk it for everything, every every drop of wisdom and enlightenment, and empowerment and evolution that we can get from it. So you know, go deep, and then make it into this really human real monster that has no good, because this is what we're going to change. And it makes it more real when it's a person. We can talk about ideas for years and years and years, we can make lists of negative beliefs about money, so what but when we talk about relationship relationship is between people, even if that other person is your cat or your dog, you know, it's it's personal. There's there is back and forth, it has to feel that way for it to be real and relatable so that we can change it to have a real reference. So that's step two is making making the root cause the wounds anything that made you feel unsafe and loved unworthy things, maybe you're ashamed of maybe violence or accidents, especially things that illnesses especially things that don't look obviously like they have to do with money. I find that's really the best place to look. And then you then you imagine it's that that there is this person who is responsible for all of it. It just can't be your parents and it can't be you because in step number three, and this is what I developed since I went through my own shift first time decades ago, I found it more effective with clients that if instead number three, you obliterate you obliterate the beast, by any means necessary. So hello, Love and Light crowd. I know you're all vegans. With yoga mats, I know it. And I invite you to be as violent and overdramatic, and and thorough and complete in destroying the monster because at the end of the day, this monster will destroy you. There can only be one my mother loved Highlander. So there can only be one, there can only be one. Let's make that you. Yeah. So rid of it. Brandon Handley 23:15 Yeah, real quick, just just just second, just pause as we go along for a second, as you're talking about, you know, creating this maximum polarity and going into the alchemy. I mean, there's a lot of energy stored and pent up energy in these areas. And you're talking about going to, right? And then you know, are you talking about transmuting that like you know, energy into into this right into the things Morgana Rae 23:38 like the fire, it's like the fire in the alchemy lab. So our victim experience which I think you know, it's like I don't want to be there. But it's part of the human experience and if you've been there and I have been there then the you want to use it. And I in my experience, the victim experience tends to feel very heavy it's kind of got a heaviness a coldness of dampness if we're gonna get all like touchy feely about it. But what helps you rise up from that victim experience and set boundaries and say no, like Monty Python Thou shalt not pass? Is is that like that slain that flaming torch and we have all these beautiful spiritual archetypes we've got Durga in India, you've got St. Michael in the West, you know, just slaying ignorance. And we're only we're not killing anything that has a corporeal form. So you just want to embody that that like Kali, flare of ignorance. I also loved Shiva, I got my degree in religion, I was really into Indian religion so and just destroy this embodiment of everything that He does not get to move forward in your life, like everything that you do not want to allow in your life experience. You put that in the monster and you reject it in this very dramatic, like Lord of the Rings playing the orcs fashion. And that's the first half of the process. Brandon Handley 25:24 I mean, sounds good, right? And definitely a bunch of terminology I certainly understand. Right. You know, so we're making we're making this monster and we're we're personifying it. Right? I think anytime we in stories, right, we personify, there's a need to personify so that we can are able to relate to a lot easier. And that's what you're doing when you create this Money Monster and personify it. So that, right, Morgana Rae 25:51 and it makes it a lot more specific, and unique and personal to you. This is your monster. This is not some generic everybody's monster, this is yours. And this one is focused on you. So it's very personal. And the way to take your power back is is that third step of destroying the Money Monster. And then when the monster is gone, yay, there's a new situation. When I first got rid of my monster, yay, I really and and I had this experience of oh my god, there's this feeling of emptiness. Like, I've had this omnipresent monster Dude, my whole life around me that I never felt it, it's like you know, air, but when it's gone, you really notice, and nature abhors a vacuum. So I didn't know to destroy the monster then. And I was afraid it was going to come back. Or some like random Money Monster strolling down Sunset Boulevard was just going to get sucked into my vortex. So I needed to fill that spot. Immediately. Instantly, as soon as the monster is gone. Now we have a new problem slash opportunity, which is we need a new relationship. And it needs to be completely the polar opposite of what we had. Now the lucky thing is when you've slayed the monster, and you have slayed and obliterated and rejected everything that you do not want in your life experience, only one thing remains and that's love. Like that's it, that's all that is, is love and expressions and manifestations of love. So when I thought to myself, well, who could I have in my life that I would want so much that I'd be willing to have this relationship even if it's money because money has been very hurtful and scary in my life and I don't want to get into that kind of thing again. So I instantly luckily visualized in that moment just kind of showed up ready made. Who showed up with this tall dark handsome romantic young man carrying a bouquet of red flowers dressed in a tuxedo as if he wanted to take me out and he was very romantic and very loving and very in love with me and wanted to woo me which was is actually the character of this relationship is that it feels like love relationship love comes first before the cash and I have found over the course of coaching so many people that a lover dynamic usually is best best for a number of reasons on a spiritual level you're both equals your your honey this new relationship the money honey, you can you can break his or her or their heart you know, it's not rescue me money, you know, its partners, which is really healing and it kind of heals all those broken unloved bits inside of us. And because I also know that many of us have had really, you know, terrible sexual trauma, maybe a sexy money honey isn't the place to start. So the first rule is that this new relationship is really really safe. And that this person loves you. Loves you exactly as you are loves you more than anybody in the world. And this is somebody that you want to be with and have in your life as a partner because this person is worthy of your deepest love and admiration. shouldn't trust and it's just cool to be with someone nice, safe, you feel loved and you love back. That is step four, that is meeting your money, honey. So when I met mine, and I was aware of wow, this is so weird. This is like Money loves me, which is completely different than my lifetime experience and nothing that I expected. But he felt so vulnerable. And I could feel how much I had been breaking his heart for years by pushing him away. Like, I, I was the one hurting him. It's like, wow, I don't want to do that. So as you're not ill, it was actually me, I and this is really important. Unbeknownst to me, I've always been the gatekeeper. It's like, it's like Judy Garland and Wizard of Oz with the red shoes, like, you always have the power. But you had to go through this experience this Initiation this portal to find it because it's part of your evolution. So when it became safe, then I had the power. So but I knew he wanted to stay with me. But here's the kicker is I had no experience and how to allow this money to stay with me the way he wanted to. So I asked, that is the greatest thing about having this hot, sweet, adorable loving fun money, honey, of the money per episode, an American imaginary person as I can ask and get an answer back. So I asked him what he needed. And that first time out, he said he needed me to love him and stop treating him like a monster. And I thought, well, that's fair. What does that look like? Sure. And so we talked about it, and we I made a commitment to him. So step five, is you have the conversation with your new relationship with money. And Step six is you take concrete, measurable action. And this is what I committed to him was that next time you brought me a gift, I would say thank you. And that would look like if somebody wanted to hire me, because that's generally how he was trying to give me gifts. I would say thank you by saying this is my fee without any shame. With that feeling of appreciation, as love, and I got to try it out really quickly, because four people called me the next day and hired me for double what I'd ever charged before. Yeah, Brandon Handley 32:35 that's amazing. Would and it is right. It's kind of like that paradox, right? Where you're talking about having all that energy there, that Money Monster was kind of made me almost like a money bodyguard. Right? You know, you can look at it kind of any other way. But like now, she says she doesn't want any, you know, right. And then and then as soon as you know, you took a different different approach. And he said, you know, let them all in, you know, and, you know, but real quick, another one, you mentioned a couple concrete measurable actions, what, you know, and to me that, I think about, like, you know, numbers and timeframes and anything like that, but you said, You made him a promise, right? Something different. So what would be like another one or two concrete measurable actions? And we'll do that. Yeah. Morgana Rae 33:22 So for me, it was all accidental. And so I'm a lot better with the people I coach, I was just sort of like, oh, this is, you know, Oh, it worked. And then, and then I had all these clients, and I wasn't marketing the money stuff at all, but they were human beings, which meant that money came up. Because money is honestly the number one excuse that we human beings give for everything we can't have, do or be. So that's why and that's the only reason that I focus on money in air quotes as my pain door because the work really isn't about money. But it is fun when people like Anna call and you know, tell me that they that she made the $1.2 million or Perry made they made over $12 million. The big numbers are you know, kind of stand out so concrete measurable action, this is fun. Because when you're asking your money, honey what he or she or they need from you or want from you or you know, just whatever that conversation is. The answer that comes back is typically very wise and impossible to execute. So it'll be love yourself. Or trust yourself. Or the worst. Relax. Never ever, ever tell a woman to relax That's, that's bonus. That's Brandon Handley 35:02 yeah. It's funny how many times you hear it, but you still can't figure it out. Morgana Rae 35:12 So very cool, good, aspirational ideas. And nobody can love themselves perfectly 24/7 For the rest of their lives, we want to have a win. Also, I believe that if you want physical, concrete, tangible, measurable change in your life, then you want to take some kind of concrete, physical, tangible, measurable action, because it's kind of pulling it out of the ether into the physical realm, energetically, and you are teaching yourself and the universe that something has changed, but you want to give some kind of physical representation as sort of the little nice bow on top for any active magic. So what I suggest is you just start brainstorming with your money, honey, you don't have to know what the answer is, because you've got your partner here. And if you're really tuned in, and this person really feels real and present and yummy, and you're excited, then it's going to be easier to get communication back. And for some people, you can just do it in your mind. Some people it's I have a client right now a guy you know, some people think I only coach women, but I also coach guys. He's very kinesthetic. He's very in his body. So writing works better for him. So you just like Neale Donald Walsch, you know, Brandon says that don't turn up money, honey, that you just write it out. However it is. But so what you're looking for as you just sort of spit out ideas is how your honey response in my experience, like it's, it can come out really quick and easy and fast and quiet. And sometimes it's so quick and quiet that I can pretend that I didn't hear the response. But you learn how to how to dialogue with your money, honey, and you learn how to recognize his or her response. So what you're looking for is the thing that really lights your money honey up and what is very, very common with clients is clients love to be like good students. So very often, the first thing that will come out is I'm going to make 30 sales calls a day and I can just I just want to like collapse and like dig a grave right in that moment. It just feels so heavy. Yeah, I mean, what's happening there they they're in there, they're using their conscious mind and they're doing what they think they should do. But if they run it by their money honey that's not turning their money honey on the money honey doesn't think that 30 phone calls a day is going to be fun unless the money honey does but so far, I haven't seen that yet. Brandon Handley 38:20 It's funny though, too. Right? And sorry to interrupt, right because this is exactly the question and like I said when you said you know this measurable action that's exactly what I'm thinking Well, I gotta go 30 calls a day I gotta do this thing. I got to trudge and grind my way through it and my money on he's over there like keep going your mule Morgana Rae 38:40 Yeah, but see that usually is more of a Money Monster Energy. So this is this is what is so fun about coaching and every human being being different. So I've might question that we might find out oh, that there's still some Money Monster left or maybe the money honey just doesn't like that. And we just we keep going. And so things it can be something obvious like do your taxes get that out of the way and my client will tell me oh my God doing my taxes felt like foreplay I'm like great but also sometimes it's something completely unrelated to money my client Katie curtain and this is public. It's you know, I've got I've got the she let me like record and sell the audio was actually on a public teleclass and then she became a private client afterwards. But so the first time we slayed her Money Monster, she had her money honey, her money honey, really lit up at the thought of her going skating in December, in Canada where it's really really cold, but that's what her money honey wanted. So she says She was going to do it. And then she didn't do it the first day, because she was so stressed about money. And there's so much to do. So she didn't do it. Day two, didn't go skating because she was so stressed about money and debt and all that all that she had to do, nothing happened. Day three, she went skating, she took her 10 year old little boy with her, they had this amazing time, this amazing heart connection, she came home, she got a phone call, and somebody gave her $10,000 without her even asking. And that was the beginning of the journey. Janet brockmeyer also very, very similar story, her money, honey wanted to go walking, but she's too busy trying to get clients for a week. Finally, she went walking, and she picked up two clients at more than she'd ever charged before. I have a client whose money honey wanted her to stay home and do laundry, and she got a phone call and a $20,000 client. So it can be about money, or it can be about something else. It can be self care, you know, is is very attractive to money, healthy boundaries, very attractive to money. Sometimes my money honey says, You know that thing you've been putting off? It's time to do it. Okay. Right. Brandon Handley 41:12 Now, you know, you said Law of Attraction earlier. Right? And, you know, it feels similar in that some of these actions are in alignment with like, kind of what we really want to be doing, but we're letting money be the monster that it is and saying, Well, you can't do that right kind of thing. But in law of attraction, in some circles, right? It's like, do the thing that makes you feel good, just go do that and feel good? Or like, Morgana Rae 41:42 yeah, go ahead. Sometimes. Back in 2007, I thought it'd be a really cool idea to go on a book tour. And by the way, at that time, my book might at that time, my publisher was OfficeMax. Like, now I've got a real book. And you know, Walmart carries it. But back in the day, my publisher of record was OfficeMax, sometimes Kinkos, the dependent on where I was. And I had booked a cross country book tour, where I was speaking at like, all these mystical bookstores up and down the west coast on the East Coast, a little bit in the middle and doing radio shows. And it was really, really cool. Until it was approaching. And then I didn't want to do it. All I could see was I was spending so much money on airfare and housing and rental cars with no guarantee of making a penny back. And I just didn't want to do it. And my money, honey said, you're going to do it because you said you're going to do it. And I did it. And honestly, I completely sold out my inventory. At my first speaking gig. It was, I think, some kind of like, conscious living speaking conference in San Francisco. And then the next day, out of the blue, I suddenly had a TV interview in Sacramento and I and I honestly made more money in that in those few weeks than I'd ever made before. But I had no I didn't know that I would. And it really came down to you don't know what's going to happen because that's life. Like, I never predict what's going to happen. Sometimes I can see something but most of the time, especially with sales, I don't predict that. But yeah, my money How do you said do it even though I didn't want to do it? That's integrity. Brandon Handley 43:46 Yeah, I'm in with that. Right. Like, you know, the Four Agreements type of thing right sounds and you had to do what's your own integrity with but also sounds like sounds like Your Money Monster was showing up because you were starting to worry about like, you're starting to worry about you know, spending too much I'm doing all this and I know money honey, I said we'd go out again, but not right now. Now. I suppose you're taking for a nice steak dinner. But you know, what a mind in the pennies or whatever. And so it sounds like kind of like that's what showed up and but you went ahead and you listened. You got that guidance. And you know, it kind of opened up and it shows you that. Go with it. Like yeah, we don't know what's gonna happen. And that's what I love about sales too, right? Because they'll sales always like, we want linearity. Show us. The lines going up. You're like, well, how we'll do it. Morgana Rae 44:38 Yeah, well, I love the way you put that because yes, sometimes you just have to decide. You have to decide who do I choose to be in relationship with. I did this teleconference back in 2007. And it was the first big one that I'd ever really done. And I had the speaking gig in Norway. I was single at the time, and I had As fantasy this is totally not related, but I have this fantasy that I go to Norway and get to say something like, Why yes, Hans, I'd love to see your long boat. So that yeah, that's how I was making business decisions anyway. So I have this big figs speaking virtual gig on a huge platform, and I was the best I've ever spoken up until that moment, right. I was like, really on and I was making, I was making an offer like a ridiculously underpriced offer. But it was stretchy for me at that time. And then no sales came in. And my shopping cart crashed. In retrospect, I think that probably so much was coming in at that time that it completely crashed, and I wasn't getting any orders. And I felt so betrayed. So betrayed by money, because I just spent the last 90 minutes talking about what a great person your money honey is, and how you have to be a great business. Or sorry, a great a great relationship partner. And, and then he did this to me, and I was cursing him out, like, so angry, so hurt. And what was even worse was it didn't upset him. He just thought it was funny. He was laughing. And, and, and he said, we'll turn it into an opportunity. And I'm like, oh, and he says you'll figure it out. And I had this instant moment of self awareness that cursing out my money, honey may not be the embodiment of being a good relationship partner right now. So you're Brandon Handley 46:45 hanging out with Hans Morgana Rae 46:46 Fu Fu so I like pulled up my big girl personal development panties and, and said, okay, okay, I'll look for the opportunity. But I want you to know, I'm really, really mad at you. And the next day, I got a phone call from the host of the class that I taught for this huge personal development company, who said, Oh, my God, that was amazing. I had never thought of money as a relationship, which is hysterical, because that is their signature product, its relationship with money, that whole company. And I'm, and she's saying, and I'm sharing the recording with everybody in our office. So I'm glad. That's wonderful. And like, my little antenna starts to perk up. I wonder if there's an opportunity here. So I tell her that, like, my shopping cart went down, and I'm pretending to have a sense of humor about it. And she goes, Oh, that's terrible. And I go, but can we do about it? What can we do about it? And she said, and she said, Well, I will just send out the replay to our audience of 500,000 people, would that be okay? And I thought, yeah. So it went out to 500,000 people. And my sales were far more than they would have been had all this drama and broken shopping cart nonsense, far more than it would have happened. Like, you know, just long term clients. Yeah, totally covered the trip and all that kind of stuff. And it was a really good learning moment for me. Sort of so you can actually have a fight and still be loved. You have to choose Are you going to have a relationship with your money honey, your Your Money Monster, you don't know what you're gonna get with your money, honey, but you do know what you're gonna get With Your Money Monster and you know, you don't want it. And things can turn out far, far better on the other side of what looks like a mess, right? So you just have to, you know, you just have to stay in relationship, like a real relationship, stay in communication, and keep putting love first. Brandon Handley 49:07 What's it look like? I guess, to have that ongoing relationship, like I guess, you know, are you writing notes on the daily be like, hey, you know, money honk money, honey, you know, to hear what's going on, you know, do we send notes to each other? What's the ongoing communication process like? Morgana Rae 49:29 It's gonna be different for everybody. I have a client named Athena who goes on God walks and she just has conversations with her money, honey out in nature, and it's been really supportive for her in first financial stuff. She went from being in mountains of debt and in a bad marriage with two small children just kind of making $100 here and there with psychic reading gigs to making 10s of 1000s of dollars a month in about five months. And then her Honey, honey said I don't want you to do that anymore. I want you to focus on music. So she's been on that other journey and her money honey has been there in terms of like getting married and her money honey has been there when one of her children tragically was killed. And she had to ID the body. And she said she couldn't have done it without our money, honey. So it's a it is a spiritual journey. She doesn't walk in what I do, what is my easiest way to like get the most value out of the relationship and stay connected daily is I have a practice of every day answering a bunch of questions that I created for myself. And some of that is in my book. What is not in the current iteration of the book, but I think I want to add it is I like to share what what are my challenges actually, there it is, in the book, I'm on a on a weekly a weekly thing, but I do a daily now, which is what is challenging need, what do I have? Do I have any negative thoughts is like the best way that by the way, my negative thoughts, it's almost like a turns my money honey on because it gives him you know, something to do. Right? He wants something to do. So if I, like come out with that, you know, saw I'm not good enough, I'm gonna fail at this. Nobody loves me. He'll respond usually first by laughing and tell it and then giving me whatever message like I need. And that's my favorite practice for staying in daily relationship is kind of flipping my own negative defaults. And then hearing my money, honey, it's sort of a trick or a hack for accessing your highest wisdom without all of your neurotic baggage attached. Now, it's also like if I making it this other person, then this beloved, right? And it's kind of flirty, right? You know, he's just he thinks that my insecurities are adorable, by the way. So this my husband's like, they are so similar. Brandon Handley 52:22 I'm glad, I'm glad it's continued to work out. And definitely, it's definitely quite a bit in here that you've shared. There's plenty more on your website, you've got your books, podcast, plenty of other podcasts and audios. And what we'll share out some links at the end here. But is there anything else right in this moment that you'd like to share? If not, I've got just a little little bit that we do. And then and then we have to towards the end? Morgana Rae 52:44 Oh, yeah, I have a really fun, non scary, easy quiz on my website, my money love quiz, that I encourage you to start there if you don't know where to begin. Because all it there's, you probably have figured out I'm I'm really not into the judgey Shamy thing. I believe we are all on the same journey, which is to a life that is focused completely on love, lifestyle and legacy. And the only purpose of for money to exist is to serve love, lifestyle, and legacy. And when it serves anything else, that's when problems happen. So we're all on the same path. And so this quiz just kind of it helps. It helps you identify where you're just really super strong rockin it, where you need support. And based on your responses, it lets me know what to send you. Like, instead of just giving everybody in the world the same gift. It's like, Oh, why don't you listen to this? Maybe this is where you need to go next. And so that's that's the quiz on the homepage. Brandon Handley 53:59 Very cool. Now, thanks for sharing that. That will be beneficial. I love that you send out something that is actually not just like, hey, thanks for thanks for filling this out. Everybody gets one of these right? Says personalized little bit. These tend to degree that they're answered. So we'll definitely send people there. And if you've got just a couple moments here, then what I always liken this to this podcast, who's kind of like spiritual speed dating, right? Like somebody's tuning into the podcast, and they're like, I'm just looking for my next vehicle speed day, who am I gonna spend like, because, you know, I think you know, in the world of marketing to like the average time that somebody spends about 90 days like kind of listen to like certain podcasts before they move on or this day, right? So it's a speed date. And you're my spiritual bachelorette of the day. So spiritual Bachelorette number one. I think this one, this is a good question for you. Why is there poverty and suffering in the world? I think Morgana Rae 55:02 people are fundamentally just as sentient beings. We're frightened. And because we're frightened, there is a tendency for some people to hoard. I don't think, you know, oligarchies with all these resources beyond whatever they need. They are very, very frightened people. It's it. And I think this is why we have poverty and suffering, because we have the resources, we have the technology. But there's a there's a very tribal, a very ancient wiring, in our belief system, that we have to be separate from others. And we have to have more than others. And it shows up in lots of different ways. You know, religious wars, racism, sexism, fear of otherness, fear that there won't be enough for us. And I think that's where it all comes from. And the solution is, it's so individual, it's systemic, yes, but all systems begin with individuals, is we have to work on ourselves first. And it always, always, always boils down to I am enough, when I am enough, it is possible for me to have enough. When I not enough, everything in the world is never going to be enough. And that's that's the real world work that needs to be done. Brandon Handley 56:44 Nothing that's powerful. A couple of things now, right sounds like, you know, part of it's just like this, this heritage, right? It's it's been kind of handed and people just aren't breaking the chain, right? Be like, well, this works, especially if they're rich, right? Like, well, this worked before. And we all say rich, I'm gonna keep doing it. Right? Let's keep this Let's not break this chain. And then the other part, right? I am enough, are idea of things folks who earlier, right? The money equals our value, I don't see a bunch of money. So I must not be worth a whole lot type of thing. And really just kind of changing that other game, you're like, Well, you know what, actually, I don't need the money to show me my value. And as I begin to see my own value, understand that I'm enough, I began to see more money, right? It's kind of it works a little bit in the reverse. And then I think that we've been taught, that's been my experience anyways, right? And, you know, you talked about the vacuum, sometimes it's just like, as a bag up and somebody acts it up, and then that's great. Right? So that'll happen. And so it's pretty interesting to see that happen, especially when we when we talk about our worthiness and our value. And we we tend to relate that worthiness and value to how much am I doing? And how hard am I working? Right versus your enough, like, you don't have to like, you know, I don't know, sacrifice your all of who you are, to get what you want. So, Morgana Rae 58:07 like the wealthiest state of being, is when you don't need to prove anything right. Brandon Handley 58:13 Now, I love that. I love that one more here for you. Because I think that it relates to what you're saying. In you mentioned about people being frightened, right. So when they're frightened, you know, that to me would indicate that that's preventing them from living to their full potential, what else would be keeping people from living to their fullest potential? Morgana Rae 58:34 Well, I actually I had this image when you were talking about being frightened, because like, one of my favorite topics is the connection of love and money. And one of the unintended consequences that I found of my work early on, which is my favorites, is that when people heal their relationship with money, their love lives get better. So women, when we're frightened, we become really like hard and protective and masculine and we have our armor up and we're like, we want this that that and we're not going to settle for anything less and we're like, and gods are like, Oh my God. And men when they slay their monster what is so beautiful is like, you can see it in their shoulders. They're like this and and, and they they become the heroes they've always wanted to be. And so while women when they when they need their money, honey, they may be like, Oh, I can finally finally relax. Now it's safe. I can just wrap myself in my money honey arms and, and be supported now in this moment. And for the man it's like their money, honey. It's like you slay the monster for me. You're my hero. And he's like, Yeah, I am. And so he becomes really attractive not just to money, but to romance. And the same for women. And that that is, I think, my happiest favorite effect of the work because it really ultimately, is. It all boils down to our relationship with life. Are we safe? Are we wanted are we loved? Brandon Handley 1:00:17 Awesome, we're gonna thank you so much for coming on today. Now I know we can send them to take the quiz, folks, where should we send them to connect with you?

“All Going Out Together” It makes sense that the Massachusetts-born Steve Michener was in three seminal Boston bands: The Volcano Suns, Dumptruck and Big Dipper. The Volcano Suns were an outfit that Michener formed along with former Mission of Burma drummer Peter Prescott, he stepped in on bass with Dumptruck after their first album and he co-founded Big Dipper who were on the Homestead label before signing a big major deal with Epic. I've always loved Steve's playing—he's steady and strong and his baselines roll with power and groove. And the story today that he's going to tell is about how he jumped into music and very slowly inched his way out. And I think the inching out is what's the most fascinating thing here—sometimes people have the ability to look ahead and actually ask: What do I want and is this the best way to get it? Steve did that and he realized the things he wanted could not be attained while playing in a band. And so he stopped. Sort of. Then he really stopped. I'll let him tell you his story—that seems fair, right? Anyway, Steve is a lovely guy and a voracious listener to music of all kinds—he may have inched his way out of rock and roll, but he's kept a foot firmly in it on his own terms. www.bombshellradio.com www.alexgreenonline.com Stereo Embers The Podcast Twitter: @emberseditor Instagram: @emberspodcast Email: editor@stereoembersmagazine.com

This time around, Matt sits down with Rob Goodman to talk about political eloquence. Goodman is the author of a new book on this topic called Words on Fire, which you can pick up a copy of wherever you like to get books. Can you think of the last time you saw someone give a rousing speech? They step up to the podium with throngs of onlookers staring at them. Somehow, rather than nervously scampering offstage or melting into a puddle, they speak off the cuff in a way that transfixes everyone listening. Their words feel fresh, sincere, and yet somehow also perfect, like a movie star nailing their big scene on the first take. You'd think that someone speaking from the heart would falter or stumble the way the rest of us do, but against all odds, this feels both maximally authentic and maximally polished.What is it that makes a speaker compelling to listen to? Rob Goodman thinks that in order to understand what eloquence is, we need to look not just at the person up on stage and how they're talking, but how the people in the audience are responding, and how the speaker is responding to their responses, and how they're responding to the responses to their responses, and so on, ad infinitum. What makes eloquence happen isn't really individual speakers talking in vacuum, so much as it is groups of people conversing together. Or at least that's his idea. Eloquence isn't just one person speaking skillfully; it's several people conversing skillfully.In this episode, our distinguished guest also argues that when a public speech goes well, it goes well because both the person speaking and the people listening are taking some risks. The person speaking is sort of on the spot, risking embarrassment, and the people listening might have to rethink their prior beliefs, which takes a lot of work, at least assuming they make an effort to live by their beliefs. When a speech does what it's supposed to, these risks are shared between all parties, rather than farmed off onto just one. But when the speaker tries to give the appearance of taking risks without actually doing so, you end up with the audience shouldering 100% of the burden, and the exchange ends up somewhat dysfunctional. This, argues our guest, is what happens when politicians go to great lengths to control or sanitize the environment in which they speak, so that no matter what, they don't embarrass themselves. Sort of like riding a roller coaster with a safety bar.Tune in to hear more about what makes for a great speech!Matt Teichman See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
