ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this episode of The Clever Dummies Podcast, Aneeqe A. Khan & Lachlan Inwood, Talk about the lessons of life learned in Bussiness. 

And think you all for joining us forapost number, sixteen of the clever Dummies Bodcast, I'm Lucky S, alwaysI'm joined by my brother. How are you going today? Might I'm good my man, I'm good? I'm goodenjoying life has always as much as I can in the great city of Victoria gtid word a anyone who has been there.Prepre precobed absolutely knows that for sure, and I mean at the end of theday, you guys are jus on the front line, you're kind of UNFORTUNATEL. The epeople that w you know have had to take it to t see is what it is. Sir Migh Mwwe a'm just happy to talk to it's been like a little bit of rough rushy. Coupeof wigs, like I all of us feel like the Times kind of flying by a bit, but it'sgood a' sit down with you now might say a smile on your face. The people areonly hearing this. We appreciate you guys Lis Sing on spotify and all thatYahoo and and caranon different sort of things. So we appreciate you listen in time by the Wa generally, when we do it.So thank you by the Mi iinwhat's. U How deep do you want to get until mighdo want to get into the day the day of your life? Or do you just want a brushover and Keick on to the episode? Matall wl ends Flor to you. I 'll I'llBush over the past few weeks y. Ah, just because I would be like you hitethe nail on the head there, when you said they've been Russhy, few wakes,dayve sort o the past few weeks, and I think we did our last episode, Unnifomly enough. They haven't actually at yet the last episode, but I keep sayinglike same aird like were on radio yeah. It is, what would we call it published?Publispublisht is o t they have been they haven't at yet so it it's justbeen. It's just been days have been blending for me with allin this one, big Tusday or Wednesday e just feels likeit's a one, big Wednesday. This feels like a one big, you knowHubday. So that's what Afeel aoticse Wednesday normally was like not toostressful, because you've made it for the heardest part of the week, but youknow you've still got to keep grinding. So it's like a bit of a Middle Week.You can get on the piece and regret it for the rest of he week where he canstay sober. It is that's a great analogy Mae this Wednesday every day,people what thy is F. I can tell them when they are right when Yo os objectetit's it's. What Day is it is a Wednesday, that's a new thing: Hs Cli,Domi, Portgass, baby M, so looth, that's the thing right, Umand I have been busy which is good and I'm actually past few days I've beenlike a pretty good mental space and actuly. Finally enough this new wave ofme being productive, started from our first episode on this re, like you know,return portcast for the clabe dummies and since then I've been wiling, thisproductive wave and I just feel in a good headspace. So it really makes yourealize something small as a portcast doing a Portgaskan difference. It canmake to your life. Maybe we could do a whole episode about the benefits of doing a portcast year. Hundred percentpreach the apebetter than listen to a podcast and hearing about how goodPodcassa I'll tell you watere, actually that good and year a hundred percentright and it's not until you start sorto doing one even as a little bit ofa Giggle, you realize how fucking great they are, and it's just 'cause. Theybloody great platforms to just chat and speak for an hour or two hours, and youknow like not be really on our phone or anything like that. So and usually theycome across as betterlisting. I don't know about you, but I enjoy Hem a bitmore now than music, like music will get me going before the gym. If I needit, but generally I like to hear people t have a conversation must be growing. Olthing 'cause, Iremember my Dad Yue listening to Togibng to olda abling, two GB eght, seven,three yea yeah, my my dad listening to to GB and I used to be like. Why wouldanyone in their right mind? Listen to that, but now no now I get it right'cause I listen to, like you know, political stuff and yeah. So it's been T, it's been thro, Okind of Wen politics bu on my la TV like on on Instar, or doyou go I'm more of Oldnit Person, I'm O my person, but I try to stay away froma one particular source and I S. I've made a conscious decision to not tolike suscribe mentally subscribed to a person W O, who I get my news off, because I feel like there's like a blike social influence. I'm trying to stay like make my own decisions andjudgments galls and different things. That's a really good point say thatagain, because that's something that y a lot of people need to probably hear what m recently I've learnt, especiallyafter this ecause there's been a load of pes, and I have different peoplehave different opinion and what I feel like when people start talking aboutsomething I try not to mentally subscribe to one particular source.Would they be like a Rene radio station or a certain influencer or a comedian?perse like different whatever rigt,...

...because if you subscribe to oneperson's mentality, you just start taking in what they believe and I'mtrying to really see trying hard to actually look at the truth. VERS'SOPINION BASD jounalism yeah. So what like? I've found that with instangramlike, if you follow like maybe a political commentator on Insaon, that'susually the most popular one, so they entertainent Bu. They C politically,based like your emotions, and you tend to like the person all you like whatthey're saying, but you need to separate a hundred percent, becausethere are two severen things here, that's exactly right and I feel likeand that that was one of my problems that I found earlier on in the past fewyears was I was. I was leaning too much towards easy source of information, so easy source of information. I'vesort of classified this in my own little eccelshate right, Asili, sosorry,clickby, Libat Wrihtsir. I I've isolated, like so information sources,for example. Take this, for example, you've got you've, got an instrugentpost Righe, just with like picture and bords on it Yo, I would say: that's gotabout on a scale of one to ten about a two volidity of how much informationthat you can believe, because I wantted see how hard it was to produce thatinformation right, Um, so the r second one is. Second, one is ou a video, avideo like a more of indepth video, maybe T, might be three to four. ThenYo re looking at a news article, which is like actually like a Lenthi newsarticle that would have actually required some sort of research andreferences. Maybe that's a six or seven, then you're, looking at Ou Pod, like abook which is probably at a high like Ait, because you know the person wouldhave had actually to work almost a year to wite that book in order tolikevalidate Thei r opinion, sometimes longer, depending on who he isn longerright. But that doesn't necessarily own me. Like 'cause, you could read a book,that's probably just all opinion based anyway, because most you know, the portmust eflly sit in between, like um EPO Goneal, article and Um and M in a book, it's sort of like it'sa librate, but it's not everything because obviously in e Y, but it's likeyou can get, especially if they, if you listen to a good podcass with an authoror something like that, and they explain how they break down like makinga book. I've had fuckin some really good ones, probably netograss Tyshon. Ithink a he does that. Well, Oh yeah, he 's Isbrelymat. I I think port gass areprobably up there because they take effort and not anyone can just jump onand talk, because you actually need to look at topics and talk about and havesome sort of indepth knowledge to be able to talk about it for an hour. Sothat's that'! That's what I've been sort of like caregorizing informationsources and the the simple simplest way to categriz the information sources ishow easy it was for you to get it if it just showed up in your news feet. Chessis it's already being categorized for you to see YEP yeahyou're, getting it because you clicked on something else and that's part of yehow the information gets to in the first place. That's exactly right, like!Let me give you a small example. Not many people would know right now,basic, there's, a g there's, a war against Australian governments withGoogle. I thought it was Chinese and Kuko. No,I thought it was nurse Astrayar in the yeah, okay, okay, w what is EO Google Ben government. So basically, what has happened isAustralian media. I don't know theint smmei, I'mthincleareah yeah. I don'tknow too much about it, but what I know is from what I understood and if youguys, everyone should look into us, see that's what I'm promoting. Everyoneshould look into it. What I understood was what was happening. There isbasically Australian. The big network TVs have come together, netfor channelshave come together. You go the nine Gennel, nine that the tens and allthose whatever those people are have come together and askd the government that they deserve to get paid for allthe search traffic. In regards to the news that shows up on Google Yeh, soyep and Google says well, no and then Kougl say no, you don't, because thereis Awa. I con Yer with a iform and thits a Woll, because we hold thecontent, so we should get paid and we will say no and then they said okaywell, not only that we also want tha data of our search results thatactually anything that shows up withou sech air, a lot of thing lot ofcompanies. Don't do that! Do they? Yes, socay government, yeah Australicoan,asked e Te Googe said: Well, you need to release the DA to the MEA companygoop, because Ogo so Google rolicis public latter to Australia, saying thatthis is what your government is asking would do what you bill with this andthey basically Yo went out public with it now. Another thing that I would liketo mention, though: I've got the letter Rit in Fronof, usif Y hat. Do you thinklike do you think? What do you think that's going to lead to do? Do youthink the WAE government's going to back downor? Are we going to say striktake on something different? I honestly hope that O en governmentbackstont, because messing with Google...

...is probably a very dangerous territoryand I'll explain why one of the things that I just realize is I'll. Tell youwhat has google done so most of these media companies news channel make theirmoney. Obviously they make their money from their selling ads themselves, buta lot of the website ads are sold to google, Google adsence and that's howit works right. So when I, when let Har as a marketer when I place ads on MGoogle, what ends up happening is goog place ads on website that Ame monotized,so so, for example, channel nine is more ticed so that what will happen isGoogle will place ads on their side and because there's such a high traffic ontheir website theyll get paid yeah. That's how the a yeah- that's all thesit upso recently, what Google did Google said Wendayis this is a globalpendamic and a global disaster. So what we're going to do is we're going tocancel mounitize ation on any on the word chronofvise. So anyone who saysthe world cron a wise or use the world COB ninete cornoars Gougle won't paythe money just likewit Mo Han Youtyeah same thing. So so, basically, what thenews channels are getting annoyed about is because right now is the time theywould be making shit on the money right. They were making shit ont of money, butGoogle has ust basically cancelled them. It Saie Wen ot, aing alive. He couldargue te Wa of Cour y'e right because nomor inprevious cases, the media company. This has been their prospering time formedia companies for like those news channels, because they that's how theymake their money and but right now, they're drying out, because Googlewon't pay the money. Google said no, no one needs to make Momon Cron of Os andone of the arguments that people are having right now, and so many peopleare getting pissed off about it. When I say people I mean mostly just news:General Companies Is, if you look up cot. Nineteen on Kougle is this: Justin a Triaricis brightrs majority in Australia, because a ECOVERNMETactually Ascoogle othe government heaven so its Rarl do anything likethis. This bold outside of that affects, I think so, like that'll get, you know.Usually it's a few Western cultures will lead. You know ever England orAmerica, then will follow ther tailut for us to do with this up front. It shows you, I think, tha thefinancial influence that maybe those medero Ga organizations have inaustraloSI. Don' no that's SRAL, I think, there's a reason behind it. I thinkAustralia is a little bit behind on the complete Internet game if you notice,because the boy hey think about it when 're Olway just catching up to othercountries in regards to Amazon, just to all different things, because all thebig tech stuff sa upswer in America so weare just late on the catchup I meaneven trying to like. I was telling you even trying to set up O my ECOMO systemin Astria seeming to be difficult because we don't have as muchfacilities as other countries. Yet so that's PRORALY WHA we're behind, andthat's probably why the news companies still have such a huge influence owes is the Internet taking overcompletely gret point Ondbous Hay. We know that the Barco, in terms of the NBnin, getting decent connection, spades, comare o the rest of the world. Sothat's Sust teven the start of it. Well, that's exactly right I mean, and thenthe last thing is we're just so far out there like whichs deep down in thecorner, you knowsothat Isue, w just lot of Oucy Batles toe she'll be right. MaOne dat is Riet, we'll figure. It GTA little bit lazy, sometimes, and maybethat's it- that's exact a you know: Youal Iin, they just h too many sickdays and they'e just op working hard enough w. that's the on thing. I noticeabout Sidney moving his like, don't see, no one near as many of Hem. I used tosee so many down in nurse like e SI in Hasslegrove SOS, like you see so manythose boys out there. The thing is like you, just look at Um.Look at US sell what happens. The problem is when we see slow, intullet,we're like yeas she'll, be all right. One Bik a bit second, were like look atthese Wa j as Av Aspi, an come back and she'll be rigt'll, just ave, a beerwait, while my movie dononds, I remember having to weight like thelength of a movie like it, would take like a megabotea. Second Al Yeah. Look,I wouldn't say it's as as as a country where at fall to some reason, but Ithink there's just situation. That's why the news companies and just stillhave enough um leverage. Another thing is: Nothing iskeeping Mi. Australia still has has a high population of the generationbefore us and in Australia for the generation before us, temaare stillrespected, wers es other countries that know as respected as well. If you'dthink about it, Um in Australia, we actually respectour pry vigernation sort of like Um. That's, perhaps because we kind of havethat Asian influence as well. So we e Inte influencee per Anseoa, a thing andjust tha. It's one thing they're have in common is um they're, like I GuessSen, obviously seen as elders, but...

...their sn is the respected people intheir community. So thate given are highe value. You know, I guess, inpeople's minds, sir: It's Um, that's Deffh, sometin that you Seychange like the way that people interact with elderly now and everything else. If Thei, I thinkAustralia has still sort of held that value, which is g c soim still as theAFOR. Our parents' generations still holds our value so which the problemwith that on Nwhat, I'm saying ther's, no problem whut, I'm saying whathappens the prepecussion of that is that our paegeneration get their news.Fom. Nine News. andcal semen and all those people right in raedly onto Jbrawe had theotwogb so, which is why they are sti. People like Channel Nine andGenel Salmon and ABC are still able to move political power in that sense Yep.SO THAT'S W WHWHERE! I was getting now when I was Gon Na what my originalpoint was. So if you look up coe nineteen, so a lot of news companiesare getting pissed off about that is. Google is just giving away stats righton the centre page at the mainfont. You don't even have to go anywhere. Youjust look up. Cobe nineteen you'll just see the stats straight away, yeahthey're earlier all like. If I look up someing like Um stat from certain time periods, UmTAT's for whatever individual state they're all broken down, and you canget it pretty much every month that it's going on right, Sir yeah straighton wo. One thing I guess where in a goodposition is most of the ones we are getting as government, I'm I'm gettingmostly government websites, so not getting a lot of just body random ones.I can do their own shit, so I'm sure you might live in certain parts of theworld and you might get the opposite. Well, that's what that's what anotherargument? Google is having cause googles, pootizing sites and theyre,also Pi Touh about that Tego hats, Le Onitor, that's how they make theirmoney again, because that's The r their business in the cent Rit, like that'stheir business model. That's exactly right! Yep! That's exactly right! Sothat's what's happening! So that's a little bit of update on what'shappening at the end of world. So I think the media won't talk about that.Obviously, because they want to keep that underraps, but Google has obiouslydeclared war. Really I mean what what a seger like wh we go to yahoo orsomething like do. No, no, we wonn't real O. Basically, what Google is saying is wLD. They will start giving away our Dara if the Stalan government says wehave to to those people Um. So I don heavilhave a read of t. So if you guys are listening to this board gas and that'sthe Laoalit, so t who's the paper that are wanting the data, so you got those big news: companies,Sir Arshor 'cause. That's how they're going to yeaetee'cause that sets apresidents. Man Like you, can do that now and other people coming with moneyor influence and then all of a sudden, your daughtes going everywhere elselike do you subscribe to any mainstream news sites like internationally, evenlike New York Times, or have you ever done any of that? Now, man, N, I I I'mhones, I'm it's all weird though 'cause I might sound like one of those crazypeople, but I'm I'm honestly, not I I I would if I had a channel Ninarticl popup I'll bread it, but if, if something I read, didn't stick with me right I'll,go! Look it up to another way, but I try not to be a fan of Er particularnewsource yea and I try it really hard like coutiously try hard and Mhen. Iare you. Are? U How a e you're wording. Idifferently are you're searching for certain sites that are but yeah yeah,I'm actually searchn yeah searching for sites like different articles onsimilar topics and ill just know me what I would do I'd open and look upsomething and open like three new taps of the different conversations ofdifferent news. We see, what's kind of more accurate Yeh, just trying tofigure that out and I feel like that's- I'm not saying that I'm not trying tobe a dick or like trying t like in a blo blow my own toot, or is that whatit is on yet n? One thing is like I feel likeas be as public: It's our responsibility to actually try to getthe right, instead of just you know, to get the right information. Otherwise,you know you O do a little bit of two geleist right, like e firt, seonrod,first meal, that they give you and take a little deeper. That's exactlyrigt, B,found in the middle pagees. That's what I heard m you got to go to four andfive, those independents that I don't have a lot of money to advertise.That's way you fond the gyms, I Lon, I fon her conspiraty F Theori, theIsajest Treadcae, a AA. That was, I m just about to get to that. You don'twant to go to into the to like ans random sources either, because thenthey they've got noblitity, Theye, good old opinion, but basically like justlet me Tel you. So if you look up open letter to Australia from Cogo, it'sactually signed by the Mel Sylvia, managing managing corector of Google,Australia Um. So that's her name. She HatAsothona, yer. Listening, I'm sure she is my google just said:Hey. How can I help...

...they're? Listening? Always S OPE letteto Australia said we need to let you know, aboutabout new governmentregulation that will hurt Australia on housereally uses, Google Search and, ut the PROPOSD lawer proposed law. The news media bargaining bargaining codewould face US would force us to provide with dramatic word Whi. You woulddramatically worse, Google search and you do and Youre Ether, Gon Sai the serviceright, so they're not GOINGTO, get owo to Esoit Er Yeh, so they're taking itpre suiously. I mean, like writing that kind of letter to a whole country. Youknow how serious tey thow close. It must be that it could happen to theylike this is like and once this happens like yeah fat Mar Yeah. So that'ssomething to think about, and obviously Newyou won't tell you about it becausethey want this one to UN underraps, because otherwise theyar people d,plove people like Google. They don't like news companies Um Anyway. It isthis. This is kind of business. I, which kind of brings us right into the. I think, with perfect timing as wallkind of brings us into the topic of a hand, which was, I guess, we'll have to flight throughthat one. Today I ge yeah. Now that's so good it'll it'll fit through itIreckonin and I guess kind of just affairs, we'll kind of catchin up alittle 'cause. It's been a little while, since we've Tall Um, that's really whatyou've been doing. Men, like you've, been to get into your your personallife and what you're wanting to achieve, and that's obviously, Your Business andyou've come into certain issues that I'd imagine. Most people who have goneinto similar lines have gone like felt. The same thing druethe like to Ou avingcompany. I still follow the co N he's a pretty pretty solid dude um can't Remembe what his name is and myeah and it's just a daily grind and you're going for it now and and thenyou showed me like what you've done: You've written, er or submitted aarticle which I'm sure you're going to talk about, which is pretty cool, Wen,ets, interesting stuff, so bloody eh, take it away mate and yeah. Just just speak from the heart.My friend Mig that you don't have to you, don't have to be to by the book orRi m on the clever dumies pod cast. We well go free Rome. We don't. We don'tneed a hold back aright. So if anyone I wilini short might weekend, we cul callthem Ou ik, a Sano. Let's do it, okay! So, obviously y? U Know Working onbusiness and I think this is something I've learnt about myself in thisparticular Loktom. I guess you learn a lot about: U Yourself, when Youaredoing minimal stuff a well you're doing stuff and Um, not really, you know not reallyenengaging with other people, so I'm I've kind of been I've been right. Now,I'm sitting on this, my desk, where I work and talking Tolo. Basically,that's where I've been sitting most of the time spending most of my days here,Um and I've been just tinkering and that's the world that I've been goingfor is tinkering. When I SAI Tinkeing, I've always been a bit of a tinkerTinkeror, we just kind of play, wey different things. Se read abouttefluctning, said that'hat's definitel Wi, I've alwaysbeen the kind of person who you know looks at different things like I've,never been pretty much. What has this been? The team of this kin of portcasst?I've never been the kind of person who sticks to one thing cause. This is it Ican never Commu, and it's not that I have a Commitin I shut, but I just likeseeing different things. What different things play out? We're not going tobring out the relationships yet m. We go together. That's exactly why I sa Brag Coor yeah,like Iver, or a m that she's going to have to part too. That was one of myfavorite episodes too. I think it was like episode, nine something like that.I T and check it out if anyone, if you're listening and having listen tothat was a really good episode in what was on like relationships, love sex, O,yet te Oldat, stuff and she's such an intelligent person, so itwas reallygood to kind of get like. I was actually preten to her devra yeah yeah.I was actually talking to her about coming back on the portcas she'sGreeking, so ight bring he next week, hethat'd be a mad one bank out. We canjust shoot it. Ot, like in Myr, Wednesday Oo, what's release it on Hada ssounds, good yeah, so just going ta talking aboutthat right, so I always been tink. So and I've been playing with most OEbusinesses t despite the fact that someone everyone has given me twice tostick to one which I actually have figured out that I need to do, but I'vealso figured out a way to manage multiple H. Businesses Bobland is thatthese different things require a different level of attention, soodespite the fact that I could focus on one business, but if I focus a hundredpercent on one business, I would be just sitting around doing nothing. Somuch is fine. So that's why you know, for example, Bombe box doesn't requiretwenty four semn hours of attention. Onby box is more so its more of amanagement. Once you create the company right yea, you just Konet your messagesin you make sure yourings on time, just kindo like manage it from from thatperspective, from thee that that's exactly right so and W. I was thinkinga lot about it a and I was thinking about it. wats like what have I reallyyou know gathered from like past fee,...

...like I think I've been around businessin and around business. The word that I I've used is o almost for five six years now right,so whether ive started working at a company. I I didn't really work creckin like nine to five jobs where it just directly did like adme. I've alwaysbeen more like businessly involved, which I've been lucky to lucky to beinvolved, so shallow to Allen for that, because he was the person who quit oflike Capain, anjold Absegii, where I'm ymentor and Assenti like Eah. He he's a hundred percent of mymentor. I think it's probably the only mental that I would see. That's thehear thing. I've got a few mentols right, but he's probably the one that hasalways jsket me motivated so it shallhim in the area naded right andwhat you say. I guess early days, donasty you're too far off bere. Justtrying t keep what keeps you going. I guess like: What's your favoriteelement of business, that you first did all you still do today that you enjoythe Mostis it creating the product or at? What's I think, Itpaen just asactually the word that I just sait tinkering actually Agra lbecause. Thereason I use tinkering is cause I opling Aon, with different things anddifferent Ideaas, an different opportunity, which is the best part,and I that's what I was just saying. Alan gave me the opportunity to do that.Even when I was working fulltime job. As you know, essentially human. When Istarted his employee, he gave me the opportunity to tinker and try outdifferent ideas and try out different things. Some work, some doesn't youknow. Sometimes I made mistakes, sometimeis cos company's money.Sometimes it costs me money, sometimes Bot, disappointed right, but I mean Ispat of the business. Righha part is like life business and that's exactlyright. That's exactly right! So, and I think that's why I this portcast wasgoing to be. I wanted to talk about the lessons I've learned so far in businessright and the this is going to a pretty clear, portcast 'cause. I've got themlisted out here M, so I think there's actually article thate. I wrote aboutit as Walsob link this in the homework ss section on our website, which ischecked out. The cliber Damis portcast do com, or some new website love itstill in love with it. So wife e Oi Po, a in GIV, give it little search justcheck out it's it's amazing, just seeing it on Oneday, my just likehaving that vision, it's like a vision board and having something up tosomthings that would proud of too so give that a co Wu se how Insagran comealong nicely too. So my all things re happening, but yeah we got a specialplace now harf for that Buddy, um websites. I give us some love Abe, givees some lauge yeah. He was some love now. Okay, the first first lesson thatI've learned- and this is being I've- learnt it's the hard way. My Man, like,I can't tell you lent, is the hard way, the lesson that I've learned, my ideasor your ideas or anyone, ideas aren't original, and this is this hurt. This hurts right.This hurts the reason I say that is because d. This is what I said Sa if Ihad a dollar for every time. I came up with a groundbreaking idea that wasgoing to change the word and that was going to make millings thet was goingto make billions. If I had a dollar for every time Iwould actually be Jepass, then I wouldn't have to worry about workinganyway. Kowwhati mean 'cause. You just come up with so many idea.Well, I preson do and then I have to assess them, and sometimes I don't acton Thean. Maybe that's maybe that's the problem. I think the key. Is it doesn'tmatter? What kind of idea likethere are so many things Ari like and when you'rereally going to that place like there'se, so many things that come upso you do definitely miss that opportunity, but and that's why it'simportant to take 'em, but its also important too, to not go too crazy onwhen they get get get the rihe people have like an Allan, you know or someonethat you know or trust or someone. That's build a business even if it'slike a local, a local trady or someone who's. Anaccount and who knows what it's like to run a business like do that process.First, save some of that Hartmi run the idea by u by someone someoneparticularly someone who's y. maybe someone n like what I would say,probably not anaccounting O, because I'E bt understand ith. My I'l tell you wy ite, O probar Caon,because the Cartin ar Sylico they're, like probbl e airport Fairpnto, maybe on one O, Oime sin, Atat Yryeah, run past onthe idea, pass Comman, someonther, U Trast,maybe with few friends and if all of your friends say yes, then maybe it's agood idea. ND! The thing is, if you come up with a good idea, you'll stickwith it as well. Otherwise you 'll just put it on the backbun. Is then I'vedone it all the time I've started projects just put in the BACKBURNIS,because I've realized that idea, despite the fact that I thought it wasreally good, didn't have enough push to keep going. But what's important to remember is theidea doesn't have to be so unique that it's the only idea in the wor. The keyis just to remember that you just need to make it work right. It has to bedifferent enough and has to be unique enough or just to be better than theother ideas Lin. The example that I...

...used in my article was Um apple was inthe first company that came up with eipod, but they're. The only company thateveryonyone talks about that invented the eyeport Rit. The first COMLA wasact. First Company was actually a Singapore based company. I can'tremember what their name was, but it was life music or something like that,and they made sound devices. I think them or Sony were the one that came upwith a device, but no one talks about them because they just didn't do asgood of a job. So you know, I think it's easy to just think that my ideas need to be original.I don't think they need to be. I think they can be unique enough and just dohim better. That's what the key is. I think a few. If Yo passionate about theidea, that's been done, thousands time before you could do it better. I thinkthat is sicky an ANA driving it Tooi like the Times that you need to androad blocks and mental barriers and just life right there. Well, that'sthat's exactly right and if you don't have that passion, if you do the idea,because everyone else is doing youl get to the point when it's like not makingmoney, it's all just artcoings, there's no incomeing you're like well you'llstart giving up. But if you actually can about that idea and your passionateabout, I you keep going so that was the first lesson I learned and that kind ofhurt me because I almost h always CS disheartened 'cause. I always sawmyself as a as a individual who always came up with original ideas, and Ialways thought I was different yea but then ID realize, though unique anindividual to yourself right, that's exactly right, but an the chamber theelike what was it that made you think of that idea, and they also had it like.Had You subconsciously known about it? Is it just because you know you'regetting to experience life in certain way and then you think there's aproblem and then Sallens already solved it like that's exactly righ it, butit's good a atmeans you're on e level of thinking like beyond what you'reyou're at like your age or nor more development woul be yeah at exacty.Like one of the one of the examples I w that's actually a very good boi, lockafor that Ta, I just that is actually Ft. my thinking on that actually, overthe whole thing not be positive about bothe ITM ow. That's what I'm here forif I jusai ithat's, it's the hundred percent trahere, but that's a positiveway to look at the whole thing. Now, though, but the fact is like, forexample, one of the project and that's that's another thing: People hold on totheir ideas and they never tell anyone and that's the way, Ideas Gong to die.You better of Tenin your ideas to someone. Even if someone steals itbecause that thing will happen where says you just holding onto it, becauseyou're so protective B'cause, you want to make that happen like one of thethings that I was just about. Tenwhatever J, whatever stops, Paperye,OK, theoth ie that I was just about to say, is like I came up with the idea ofdesigning this financeal software called financially and I'm speakingabout in a portcassage you on a steel. Let go for it, but one I one the thingsthat I came up with right. I said T at I build accounting sister. If it getsbe ten percent kickbacks baby, I mean it can po you can becend for theSHELEAV. Just please write boy. I I an read an at for you on the show I HaiOnde, unfortunately, not from me. Take it outso financially, I t was software. I cameup with, which is a softare, so obviously companies use accountingsystem, men, theyre business plans for business right and they have projectionand everything, and I thalht to myself. I said why could' a indoidual do thatfor themselve like why? Couldn't we come up with a life plan and weve comeup with like a three year life plane like we do a three year business planand we the way we do accounting for business. Why couldn't we do apropersal? I was like. Oh that's, a great idea. One should do it and then Istarted looking into it. I realize how difficult it was to make the PTHEsoftware itself, and second, someone has already done it so already done itnightthr right, yea, not many outthere, but someone has already definitly doneit, so if he could all Etrte way to do it like competition's, always good ithats, riht happens, wit like after pay now step pay. Everything else is outlike that tingle pushhard. So after based on in it yeah, that's the I yeah.The idea is like no idea is really original, because there's almost eightbillion people in the world someone's already thought about it. In fact, Ican guarante you there's always already someone younger who stend own smarterthan both of all three of US combine hed person being the one who'slistening right now and me and lockcle com. I smarter than us. It's probablythirteen year old lives in somewhere in India doesn't have breakfast and hestill smiles an us he's. Alredy come up with everything and he's geal go a paoof these trausers that sothat's the reality ctay sportcast ten, as I Abia Hisportcast, eight n plus this Teah there's clever an ste damis mine is atwo pece. That's Oh eight billions. So that's the first lesson and that was ahard one to learn and moving ovto, the second one. Once again, I think thereason all these lessons are quite painful for me personally, that's why Iwrote them out the second lesson I learned and that's what the blessonsare always if they're painful and I'm going to skim over this on, becausethis is, I think, most people. Now this and iing I was the one who was a littlebit more like O. I need to do every so.

The second lesson I learnt was youdon't need to do everything on your own, like I thought, and I still think I waslike I'm just going to do everything 'cause. I will do it better, I'mgoingto do it. You know and to the point like creatinglowgos the things that are not even my my field. I woill try to do because Ijust think I can do it better. Yo Yeah, some in your head. You know what youwant, but it's putting that into practice. That's that's EACTHAT's,exactly right, Lik and doing something so, but I realize over the years like Icould probably spend my time. I could spend my time better on doing oneparticular th like a different thing than actually doing something that Ihave to learn than to do and then to produce a prodact. I could just give itto someone like something small that I ad e few days ago, there was a logothat I was strying to get done, for a purst, cliente right and- and I wasjust trying to do it and I got reall ICK man. I think it's probably better.If I just get someone else to do it, so I just paid someone on fie and did it Ie they did a bri in op and they did way better than jobe than I was doing so wha. Whatever weusing I was, I was using illustratorillustrata Hacke an Dier, so yeah like I guess in the business that youarerunning now the businesses that you currently are what, if what wt ftheerrors that you've delegated so far, ono the sit or like Wat or the areasthat Youv? How much of that, if you put in a practice for yourself well, I'mI'm trying to outlay most of the content creation and most of thecontent ideology and the look and few of the brands to Turens ethat's. Onething: I'm doing so really try to lick off that and that that's like visualinmatery, that's marketing in a big party. But it's also like the like thefield of the company too, like almost the it's just the mouthpece of thecompany right. It's the external tht attract people. Get peopleinterested in also provide quality. You know provide the Qatsa, so on help is,is Hunde Pecashanot, tencose, towte, terence, and he's got a better visualeye than I do us. While he's got a better way to see images and forther,so it makes sense and then I'll proay do that at somebody which craft underhis eyes, Magi's got some super things WBEU, they just pick things up.doesnand he goes off. is a cheese, a GNIS merit so fromturnman to says I we OV havinyone. Here we should just get him. Shell just gethim on the Fishin line all day and just try to GM once he comes out of he showI love. I love the men, a ther, so Sharan Goo on a few loyalistness. I ca, Cin sterthat's. Why that's well,that's what we want Um for so and then that's what I'm tryingto do. Another one is I'm trying to let go and outsourse Al More. The thingsthat IV a m having difficulties with so is also which is whate whatever may belike, for example, I'm trying to build a website, and I need accustom work oninstead of trying to fight the code and try to Callin my selfares out Sosai tosomeone whos tat what they do like custom work, so I just get someone elseto do the custom work and just pay them and like is us the time I spent on trying to learn howto fix something is way Mor. I was bette spent on doing the things thatI'm already doing and actually hanging out and toing PORTCASS and torputerfriends, and all that kind of stuff sor for your life makes say I safe aractually to you can x not spread yourself too thin 'cause, it canlosesome of that creative direction ride a little bit. If you try to do too manythings at once, like Yop SPENDAF lot of mental energy, then you kind of needthat, for your tinkering like you need that mental expenditure year to use ityeah 'cause, I wan to be able to yeah and that's exactly right, and I needthat time to think otherwise. I' just be doing so, and I wouldn't experienceand come up with new ideas yet yep so and like another thing I was going towas just going to say and other people at terrece is just literally moreskilled than I am in imagery. So I would never be I wouldn't S, I'm justnot good, as as he is not because I can't be it'sjust because he's spend more time on that learning that and I've spend moretime learning know accents, spend more time learning wise. So that's that'swhat it is, and and actually en power him to do that because he's there andthat's what he does so yo atend O ly. nowards whatfsometimes comes morecomfortable right, like if you find you have an interest or something that youfind comes a little easer to learn. You might go there. Well, that's exactlyright! Y P! That's exactly right! And no now this one is the one that I thinkpeople are going to get pissed off at especially some of the people I on givea ship. This is what the hard one right. So I don't e SAR about this one right,O we o this is. This is the reason I mention this one is because it justbeces me off fucking passive income. Everyone talks about it passiveIncomeri or get yourself a Passiv income sorce and come strin. Pescimencome pessive income does not fucking, insist, that's a flat out fact: The's,just no wherther way to put it. Anyone who tells you pess, ofe income exists,is probably full of Shit D or or got a million dollars from his parents and noye sure he's got Ta incom Atan example. Has He income like creating a Bisi?Well, people tpeople talk about passive...

...income in a sense where it's somethingthat you earn money. While you sleep is what thes example they use ye. Myproblem with pacifics income is is defining when you define pessamincom.That way, you say: Well, you don't have to do anything. You just set it up onceand that's IT and a lot of people treat that it is like Alstarta, amazonebusiness. I'm sure you would have seen all these ads and you got all theseonline gus selling tdis Coursein three hundred R courses down to thirty nine.Ninety nine thinking yya those old tactics, man, it's like theyaen't change at all. It's they still using that same bullshit sales, e Shit,getting people in that's exactly right and that's thewhole thing like whatc Mo es Williou to the end. If you want to find out how tomake ten thousand dollars per a week, while you sleep at home, sign up to mycoast to lern more just for three, ninety nine, which used to be sixhundred and ninety nine. Just for you today, because I know you're different,like I am here in my garage- Oh yea fore a her, my Garag, exactly right,Wumigt. If, if it was in o worst case an I, we had to scramble your lastdollar that you could make it had to be for a company like that. What would besomething you'd come P. I man and try to drive home is anything you've everfloated have you've ever thought about going down there and pos on aninsagramma trying to sell things or N. I, like I wil cmen, Oa yeah too much eEti Bar too much integrity, and another thing is: that's not how I want tod dobusiness people like one of the things that went people r telling me is doinglike one product shops as well, like you find a product that Hi's liketrending like Emeber, how fidget spinners were trending, but so you justsell that and you sell crending items, and I also see that, as is, I see allthat as like a cheap business, because they're not Bil,you're, Nol, building a brand you're, just really just capitalizing, onsomething smorre confoundation right, like yeslorinstability yeah. I like mygoal, is to build a powerful brand and like something like you know, apple orGoogle, or something like that. My goal, that's my goal, so I can't really wastemy time building those little tiny. You know something that makes me tenthousand dollars in a week, but that's about it like you know, I think it's better to build more um valuable things in longer period oftime that will be sustainable in ther will be self sustained and won't damage.Other people won't damage. My business integrity won't damage my reputationbecause you know the way I did like cheap business, your integrity and it'sjust like the commitment Toif, if you're comminting to something for lifeor, if you're, putting really your. You know your whole life into a businesslike you want that to mean something and not just treat like. I understandwhy people use it as way to make quick money and they can drive off that andsome people definitely wire differently, but well most people just mind theirscape hardwork. That's right, tear ellthat's a great point too. Maybe I'ma bit too nice but bitter lanient. That's that's! That's what I'm sayingand that's what I learned I S. I I looked for those secrets and I was likeI'm going to go, find those secrets how to make the ten thousand dollars a week.So if it's as sustainable then I would, I would be doing it, but I haven'tfound anything, but I've been thinking a lot to find something. I mean whet,I'm telling you it's like passive income is none of the ways they saylike you can make ten thousand dollars. You know, even if they show you thescreen sor of ten thousand dollars. They saying yes, they weren' tenthousand dollars, but are they talking about? Is that the gross profit or isthat the net profit? Because I can tell you they not calculate th on their dashpots when they show you the stats they're, not chowing the cost of theproduct, they could be selling at loss yeah, but you see the sale price. Soyou K, you know wha, I mean so. Let's save something apple cost a dollar andyou know they sell ten apples at fifty cents. Youe like Oh, like they're,making money. They didn't tell you the appl post of Doller, an if solder forefy cent, yet eend up, losing that yeah right right, yeah, so the even, ifthey're showing you screen shorts, the most of them are Buship, because ehthey're not telling you about tax they're, not telling you about the DUdiligency ive. You have to go through because I can tell you now: I set upthe shop these laws that can actually get you for selling a Pouk that ship.So what I'm saying is that you can't just sell anything you have everyoehave to be. Are Yeh yea, I hea it. So you M. would that be in a sense whereyou would source it from someware where the product was not clead or is ityou're not doing your own quality assurance checks like well? Let letletssomething Mo. Let's put it this way right. For example, if you were sellinga dog toy, that's going wir white and you buy the dog toy, and if that dogtoy- and you didn't know what kind of plastic was being used in that Doaraand and if somehow, someone took it to a testing laboratory and then turnedout it wasn't a BPA approved for to be a dog toy. But even if it was just likea few items that went to a particular country, t o different fun, then you'vegot a lawsuit against you, a Osma Wel. So that's like 'cause, obviously soanything to do with living things has to be a PP approved like toys andwhatnot, especially if Theye O Bein, like dog, chewing doors or like kidslike a baby stuff like that, would be...

...fithe, dillage hat's. That's that'sexactly right. So people talk about those easy ways ofmaking money and money. While you sleep M, my thing is: Why do you want to makemoney while you sleep? What do you like they want? I want to see at t a beach.Why, like? Why do you want to sit at this? It gets sandy after a while heher a gotiine Hor likethe vesion. They have like maybe like a holiday. Theywent on or something like that, and they have this kind of vision of whattheir life will be. If they do this, but that's not the real happiness. It'sgetting working hard to get to that place. That's really where it's yeahand that isness to right, like you, have to be ICN, her happiness,happiness wasn't launching bomby box. For me, happiness was bike breakingthrough the Progress I was so excited for like three months, because I wasjust working on something exciting, so that was exciting. For me, Nori mightbecring yeah in FAC yeah. That's I was thinking of learning, alert aboutlogistics, alert bout, all these new things that I had to learn about, andthat was so whelther, be you know whether you say well, hey you spendlike you invested, like you know, four thousand dollars or Whati were right. I could say I spent four thousanddollars in getting a company up. I could also say I basically did a causeon ECOMERCE for four thousand dollars, because now I know everything aboutKycomas and ID probably know more than what they would have tought me uni,because I had to go and do it and speak to the people over phones emails. Isaid to speak to people in China and PO L. I new for Ye yeah you're going aheadand doing that work, jumping INFC and full steaing ahead learning on the Joanpop stuff. So I bt, we know a lot more, likelogistical commerce in Setainon. Now, because I did that the point is East Day's no easy way out and that'smore fun to do anyway, but I mean there are few ways to do like Um te, passiveincome, but it's Mico right. So I make money from h from my website, because Ihelp other people set up shops right and so I make money and they pay melike twenty four dollars a month or something like that right, but that's nothing! That's not going topay any bills, or whatever I mean it's nice. It's a nice addition to just havethat twenty four dollars coming coming in- it's probably just you know, offsetsome of my bills supernise, but I don't call that you know passive income. Ipassive income will never be large enough that you can just go handout onthe beach 'cause, it's not passive, then it can't bepas. It can't depadit Osimiar on a itsiethat's a Ie a far. That's I you put it very nicely Um andthen the last one is lie me so and another one is like medium. I was justtelling youbout writing article medium. Medium pays me like. I think it's likefour cents per visit of a Reed wite once again at the end of the year, theymay pay me like twenty two dollars: Thirty dollars, it's shit, all it'ssomething, but it's not best like like you. You hit the Mark Thee. I once Agailocked back o what point do they mat on and up y? U Know I don't know how much a wholebunch about the intricaties of running a business. So generally my import,like I'm, trying not to speak it. So my my ream, but the way you're breakingdown is perfect. I understanding completely so I'm just I'm tying. Whatyou're saying into a Boand, I we wo billiant, but that was that was yeah.That was we well done, Ti Min as well broken down and at the end of the day, like every everypoint that you made, there came back to a KAP principle like why you're doingthis for and the Rason and then Theyhad all just has to fall into place fromthere and then break im down, and you find the time and then what's thehardest part for you is that th, like I guess the day today, grine is it?Do you ever feel like stuck like your a few? Things are going wrong here andyou know what am I going to do to get out of it all like I het a bit of a RodBlock. What do you help finds? Get You trogh ther. I thin, I think sometimessometimes I think, what's the hardest part. Is I like the hard work? I don'tlike the crying. I feel like, despite the fact that I may be tinkering I feellike sometime. I can I get discouragedbecause I buy into the bullship myself. That's why I was saying that's. Why Imentioned is a Lord, because sometimes I do buy into the bullshit and I getdiscouraged by thinking, Hey like. Why am I not making ten thousand dollars aweek on Amazone net profit after tax? You know what am I doing wrong, butthen you know I I most, I guess obviously we're all the humans.Emotionally, I see something I I still question it. I was like. Maybe I'm Idoing something wrong. You know maybe theyare right, like I still think aboutit. I think that's where I get discouraged, that's probably a down full of my own.I think I'm still working on that that I would look at something I would getto scretc him. Acel Isti Omenof success a little bit, yeah wbut those a problem,ise, that's what they generally are promising those quick results or w thatthing it just takes a realison and even though you know that's not part of theprocess, like you consumem enough things like it'sinteresting how I can still have an effect on you, even though you know I,when you know it's not real, like it can still in some ways like I find I'mpretty impatient wit a lot of things...

...like I know I need to go for theprocess and knock it out, and sometimes I want. I find it hard Um like I'll, have moments where I'm likewh. Were I questionit for that reason and yeah, and it's just important toreorate that point that it needs to go down to the process. That's what you'redoing it for and there results like thoe ae moment, O sweter when thatprocess is PLA and Pur. Well, that's it. That's! Actually ahundred percent on point and you're right and like samething with witnesslike some people. They promise you quick six minute aps it just it justdoesn't work like you know: you're, never going to get absin six minutes,and you know it in your course well, but you still try to believe it becauseyou just just in case what, if what is to senset Har o dream, it's like that,the Aresonat sailis Brian Psychology of fuckinsases in Amat, yet es and thesaddest bodies, and I work in marketing and I still buy into the Shand. I knowhow they're doing it no x, yeah yeah. That's I now exactly what they're doing,but sometime it's still easy to buy into the shit, but you know, but that'sthat's what I'm saying that's why I lessoned that I learnt and ias good forme to remember and that's what I was saying about these Portcastin when Iwokalize it and I just actually really just. I think this could have been themoment I just into my head Ray Yeah Y, you ritrated, when I put it out therein the worst 'cause I this is something I've never really said something elsloud to Somearar. I think this is the first time I'm discussing the lessonsthat I've learned in Business Yeh, because most of my, like N Whatian,published it on the seven eighth. I think I wrote it a month ago. I I wroteit when I finished finished bomby box, YEP, so not Lastono! Sorry Wen ISO. Ifinished Bombi box actually a month ago I didn't launch it till after, becauseI was worching waiting for Um waiting for a few things to done. So when Ifinish everything I gon do ovenear loved parents, a salad, Jacpyi, wake itoenup. Fifty one minutes sed by where that's I well. That's a hat's funny old habits of Radio. Imihtmention it hat which D don't do it? Don't do it do it or you do it so great,like te flow that you can get into pod casting where you don't have to frow asong in and all this other chenenigins like it's just you just got much deeper.You don't have to like it's like watching T v compared to radio rightlike you, don't they have to talk so fast that they just have to knock itout. wher Bodcat, someway break and ship down, and can do that. Yeah ThatsRight! It's it's the long form! It's it's the test cricket of theInformation Amission as far that's right, and if you know anything aboutus, we love Tes, cracket Os. Those boxing detest my men. Well, nothinglikey, Mi, M J fir MCG, I'm so excited for Yo se, Bok l, a present. You got you new persons from Chrissiand Yeah Yeah, just finding happy as and I thought that's going to be a lotbetter than MIT it's along by a way in some regards, but it is in M. It'salready August. You know twenty firsts we're speaking today, so it'll be heresoon enough and yeah. That's a good! We've been hooking in to look whatwe've done over t of the time that we try to best Abbe's, always going to bea little coved baby MIT s. It is Watte it it's funny and a it's just likegetting into it like you want to know what's going on, but you know how ityou know. You know the sort of body stress that it can bring. So it's justabout managing that as well and making that making that realize. That's partof the process and yeah, it's very well. That's IT L. I talked a lot of peopleabout it too. So this is my one tit too, as well. So yeah mutually this I what we all about on the Pe PastYeh, which which brings me to my next lesson,which wars wo, don't need, sevent, you don't need a lot of mentals. You don'tneed many, many thousands of mentors, and this is a hard on right because Ijust said when I started this Portcas wit saying Allen has been a greatmentroa. In fact, I have few other mentors of people who have h likementoed me on different things. andsgiven me it's hard because youcould see, like you could say, hey like you know, technically speaking, localYouer, Mi Mentor at the gym right. So it's it's! It's hard to say, like Oll,that person was my mentor, but what I find the reason I listed is once again:This is for people. This is once again is because what you see in Social Meliaso much everyone says getmentos Getme Nto. What what I'm trying to say isonce again with the whole getting Mento thing. All I'm seeing is people tryingto escape the hard work and trying to find the secret that someone will tellthem the secret to do something. So you K W, they don't have you know and thenthey'll just get to the N and result. So everyone is just trying to skip tothe end of the movie trying to find out what happens at the end of the movie noone's trying to watch the movie. You know. Imagine if you went to watch. Youknow the adventheres, an ND game, and youjust find you just found out the sp like at then like. What's the pointYeah Yeh, Sir: That's the WHO that's the whole thing, and I think I findthose people who basically literally copy and pasting from all they meant towas exactly how their ment os were Ar, like not innovating. They just scopyand pasting ou K, so I guess th the idea there was to like. I think it'sit's. Yes, it's good to have mentals people who can show you the way, butyou know I think, there's a little room...

...for making mistakes and learning thelessons myself. It's actually a pretty good thing as well, because I woill notcome to this conclusion. If idid exactly 'cause, I'm sure I'm sure talking about Allan, he wouldhave come to this conclusion himself. But similar conclusions were like youknow sure you did come that just like how you tol me about different Chamthings. You would have come came to these conclusions as well, but you knowmaybe sometime it's better to learn some of them on your own yeah get shownToasixso you and you get clouded. You know if you're really unsure of whatyou're doing in any any situation you can get clouded sometimes and it you'renot going to be as effective. So you need like the basic guidelines you new,to be shown how to move a weight and not drop anything on your head, and youknow n not Keeck your feet on the way out and then you have to take over fromthere 'cause it's got to be yeah, just like introducing you to a new friend orwhatever it is like you've. Gotta you've got to do the rest here, a other's, a good menill, do right and then they'll push when they need to,and then they'll explain when they need to and Um that's what yeah and that's. Why that's? Why and I bringback this two Allan because he, I think, he's a good mentor because he hasn't hehasn't given he's. Never given me boundries. That makes sense right he'sgiven me framework to do things, but he's never given me boundaries now thatI think about it. Like that's what', his style has always been, they saidHey. We should do this and t like the other day the other day. He had thislong conversation with me and I just realized just now. He had thisconversation with me about building this, like this whole new system andafter talking to him and at once again I sa thinkering and looking at what hetalked about and then I found myself I was like, like you know, Um brushing upon my coting language because I was like O. Maybe I could call this bymyself, but but I just realized what he did. Hespark that at all yeah, yes, hes part that thought that's all he needed to do,but he didn't like o. The point is he's not hes he. You know he proly knowscods, but he's not the one who would go like you know he's not that advinceincoding. So I didn't learn coding from him, but he all you need to do is islike spark the idea in my head. I was Lik, I'm going to go, look at it, whichexactly what I did so that's W. I think it's important to not copy people, evenif they M youment was it's important to like. Have that mistakes? That's something I learn. I think H,that's more for a lesson. I guess I kind of knew I felt like R. Maybe Ijust kind of fell into that lesson, but I thought it was important to shareyeah. That's also thought what you're learning off your you're at the timeswhen you fail or something doesn't, go right. That's where you're reallylearning right like 'cause, you never get better in ot, improve and that'show how you get better so, very good R. that's right! I twomthree more lessonsand the second one is going to be s. The quik one yeah become really good atXcel. Excel is, is to like excel microsof. EXOR will get your places, myman, it's an old school system, but it just works, but it just works at Ebut, so many places use it yeah. So manyways: Thet Eseit, Yeah S, you canse, it's just sobing. You can do anythingwith it. It's all by y imagination, fonally EOUGH. It looks like the mostuncreative system, which probably just holds the most of Mo r freedom. You canbe so creative with it I's tjus, brilliant solone excel. I think that'sanother business lesson I led kind of a fun one. I personally said t sounds sadwhen I say the fun thing is myself, but that's der like. If that isn't fun forpeople out there, 'cause everyone has their different things like fine ways,so understand it, and then, if you need to like you, nay outsouce it but justbe willing and know that you have to like Oga that goes hell. I thinkactalll, it's easy enough that everyone should know 'cause. Even if you don'tneed you don't Ereallyyou. Co can outsource like advance a counting stuff,but o little bit stop you should know about Exeles. We, I think it's kind, Ocool, emallike Lokan. You could make like allyour M, your training documents day and y that Stuf Yel, like so Kino CA,that's Myeah, and I have it all on the phone too, like now that Ere RongSotimes at all, it's just so much iyea, o sheets or Google cheetes, EXAC, AA,Yo, O know I you can share those also as well. You can have that with someoneelse and just keep adding to it at O. Ygogoo Docks. No. What is it where youcan? It's like you cancoo doctor Riht, where you can credi document and theninvite someone else and n then Groupo, drie documentary, all theGoogle ap El, like that he brilim Um. Now this is another one. Communication is key and this is, I do suffer with this Aso en this is alearning lesson, because you can, you can get s screen fatigued and sometimesyou almost like skaed. No, you get anxiety and you try not to answer callsbecause you know you know you haven't finished a project yet and you try toavoid like looking at it, because sometimes you dread the fact that youmay not be able to finish the project anyway. This is importanten. I thinkwhether you're like, let's say, if you make mistakes, we're all going tomislake I saider early. You know I've made mistakes and I've said sorry, andI think one of the things that I learntd, that I made mistakes over theyears, but I've truly been apologetic and, like come clean with my mistakes,Yeahwhen I've known I've fucked up, I...

...ave come clean. Like you know, likelook, I fucked up right, you know, so I think that's one thing. That's beenNice Um, but I think that's important to actually be transparent, with withyour clients, with your clients, with your friends or like in business likeit's important to have. Those communication is really important. Ithink less you talk more mistakes happen. You know, I think most problemsin business can be solved by just having a conversation ocation and andnot by an email by a phone call most. More importantly, myself. I think SOMbut documented don ritaonthat's, right, yeah and particularly 'cause, if, if itis a good, you know if it is a good meeting like you do generally start tofly on and go into a lot of different things, and at least as trying to keepsome of that locked in some of that. Brillancs gets need to be captured awayand that's what we're talking about before, like just being basicdocumenting, even having a sheet like having something little bit to rideinto something to help ot and that t that's know, obvously going to help youwith Your Business Journey, but because you're not gin to averybod het thoselittle moments. It's like Theit's, like training, it's like anything, you eatthose platos and then all of a sudden you get a spark. You get a rush and jus IIN STAK NSISTENT right theyconsistn that'll be another one. That's exacty Oll stake an sisten. I've gotanother one. How long do you have t? Can we go through all of them? Yeah ofcourse, sounds good all right. Well, we'll tr I'll try to d fly throughTherto, then O've g. This is Communication Sai. That was a quick oneand t another one which is kind of is once again the sad lesson that I had tolearn, and this is this is a hard one right. I and the lesson was not allyour friends will support you. This is the hard one and but the key world isnot all your friends will support you. This is really important. An remember,I said not all some prent and ASO AIA, one of the biggest isipot one of thebiggest lessers I earn, because when I and when I thought I was like, Oh whenI go into business, all my friends would be there like supporting me inevery way they can, because you know they support our one random friend andtelling them how awesome they are, because you know that one person gotmarried. You know somewhere, you K, O Congratulation Babe, you know, like you know. I thought thatwould be the same. Like you know, someone people would support me Um, butI I I learned that not ALD people Wul support e, whether it's and we orwhether they just want to see what happens. Ie the like w like how thisplays Ar like you, K, ow. This is one of me spectators, whatewar. It is rightand it's it's a kind of a we tougt pattent, because when you start off inbusiness for some reason you have this in your head that everyone is going tosupport me for some reason. That's what I had in my head. I don't know abouteveryone, but I had that in my head that everyone's going to be like H, youknow, yeah go encourage, met, positive encouragement and the second one wouldbe that they would, like you know, try to like share my stuff on Showsoe,media or Tey, give me their business. You know it's a little bit of that highschool mentality right like that kind of support, because you're aroundpeople all the time and then people kind of go on and you kin that's alesson that you need to learn through that experience right. That's exactly,and it's not just source early friends and it's actually new friends who arein business. Even those people can actually just kind of want to see howyou play ot like I, let you dry out to see what happens rit kinds, but insaying that there's like other friends who wi like go beond and apop, and somepeople in business like youre not like We'e, never actuallyworked on a project together, pupl I alwas felt treally supported by you,yet in every sense, Vac like in a repossible way the way the way the wayit is for me is like anyway, that I can do it or that I can support you. I want to N,like if I mayw, you know, buy anything off you or, if I'm able to share likeany any little things that a lot of people might oversee, and I onlyrealize because I love you and I want to do anything like it's just a basicstuff man, it's all Tlhattl, one percent is right. It's that's! That's all it is like fofor for me like, like I said, like you know. Basically, the Hart thing is thisis what everyone talked about. DOING: Cobe dos, that CA support localbusinesses localy, but you know wh what the way you support local businesses byactually liking their stuff and actually sharing their stuff an insteadof just looking at the means all day from preaking. You know some randomsurethat Emeans Yo W. that's how you support businesseslike you know you support them like, so that's how it helps them. Reach people,that's but yo, that's fi, but that's something I had to learn I to manage myexpectations there, but in saying that I felt like I got more from almostcollectively, which I thought would get from some people. Just from a hand,handful of people, so that's important, is well year. Like I say, like you Alen,you know Tarent, my parents, you know those people ike, you W my p, likethose people wh who supported me in a way that I was like like this. I didn'teven expect anyone to support me, so I guess that kind of evens it out, but Ithink there's something that I just wanted to mention, because when Istarted off, I thought for some reason everyone would be like thea support meand that's a real live lesson. ANOP yesness to that's exactly right and Ithink a lot of these life business. Lessons are drely culrated, with likeeverything. As I said before, a...

...business and life t is it's a game. oLife sometimes see. If I ran it's, it's it's exactly that and then now I've got youill youll haveto work long days, and this is what you're talking about o you have tocommit and what you said before Lok and you just have to grind it out- and Isay Thas is what I said. I said there's a number of like obbously learning.This is one of the great lessons I learned was like the fact that youcould ou Kno yout for some reason, workingnine to five just doesn't work like they simply notenough nine to five hours en simply no eight hours is not enough. You know youyou think about what you start your day. You know it takes one hour to just getthrough emails and those are just not real work right. Then you need to dothe work that you talk to people about. Then there's a meeting to talk aboutthe next project, and that means you didn't get to work on the last project.Tonow. Then you have to work. So you have four meetings in a day. That'salmost like four hours going, plus one hours of meeting, so you'V go fivehours of like N, you didn't do. Anywork Nov got three hours to do everything on the four O. Four projects are you'reworking on that just doesn't happen so nine to five. Unless you're working fora company even then like, I think people just leave work and then comeback the next day and try to do something again. They never actuallyachieve so nine to five just doesn't exist orIG Hun jobs, the jobs that it exist for e, the ones that were designed to fitin that time where to start aspot you nee to be he get as much ruy. I canyeah nd, that's exactly right, yeah now how Wa, I will say, th what I will say,though, sometimes sometimes and I' said this. I say. Sometimes when you workeight hours really rastically speaking, you actually do four hours of work, therest of the time you just fluff yeah, like you know you just can gap CAS itis what it is, is what it is yeah, but I think it's better to just work forfour hours and focus send to work eight hours and fluff for four hours anddon't light like at Ph. Blushi lie to yourself: Yeah 'cause you're Gong tocarry yourself through it and it doesn't feel good and you feel, likeyou, haven't you're not as proud as he could be of a hard work day, wh Whativat going. If you work hard for as long as you did, you feel good aboutyourself and if you worked hard for for, I was you'd feel good yeh and I thinkthat was important and I felt myself I found myself. I felt better on a fourhour day, wihw four hour and then went an you know Messi around or you know,played games or whatever I did, but I'v worked hard on those four ors, like Iachieved everything that I could ove in there four hours and didn't. Letanything distract me or like go get a snack from the FRI O, whatever I justout in Yeah Situs Hopein, and I know that can be hard. I know that can behard, but um just wanted to live. That's a lessonthat I let and I'm still working on that. I don't think I've fullyaccomplished that yet, but I'm working on that. But I learned that was thatwas a key now thass that one and then this isthis is kind of another one. You will be disappoint. I've learntd that this alot of disappointment and you we feel often like so often you feel thatyou're disappointed and your fail. You Fail You di Ou, get you feel you thinkYoue GTHIS! Is it and you fail again, you feel like Git, and so what Ithought about it I was. I didn't. I didn't think I toud by now. I would have surely come up withsomething right. That's what I was saying early like my ideas is so like.I was like Sury by now. would ave designed google or something like that,but I realized thirs. You know so much failure and disappointment over andover and over again an you know, and it just hits you because you N Ow, like Isaid with Bombibok like in know. First Week we made sales ike first Wewe madesales, the second Mak Movemal Sels, this Wek thate was like no scill Owas,like well alike. You know whatever as kind of disappointing, but you know itwasn't. It was 't a failure, but you know it's just it's it's not like deadend, but it's like Yo w you get you're like oh no wha did. I do wrong. Yea Getthat SASOS things tat to crape in yeah, yeah, that's exactly R, and then you dosomething. And then you like another disappointment that I find myself doingis let's say if I do a project and then I' Look at it a few months later andI'll, let more a look at the Project D, I'm like! Oh No. Why did I do it likethat and then I'm disapponted it myself or doing a poor joyk iput, my lessknowledge, Ayeah, there's a lot of disappointment and self judgment andlike that Cann continues argument with yourself like what am I doing? What amI doing so much of that? But but the good thing is- and this is I remember-Bil Smith said this- he said it said. Youll fail often so I bi say: Failureis where the lessons are so fair early fail, often and fail forward. Justremembere ou only after sixtee bonths and I was like that Weking rels, the Kit e six te key Kep, trying you only aposit e once yet, so it and th thatjust makes it that much better, because that could be just that next time. No,that could just be that next time. So that's when you F succeed, Offa like Yo,sometimes it's it's got to be when you need to be ready and like if youstumble upon sothing too early and you're not able to manage it like itcan go south. If you learn these lessons and you get better at dealingwith Hese elements, well, then you know...

...you're primed for it and it's going tohappen one or a other, because that's the way the world works right. It isone hundred percentl. Like I just said a second ago. You know I look atsomeofe my work from a month ago and I'm no proud of it yeah, because I'mlike I could have no. I know I could have done it better yet, but at thetime I thought I that was the Best I could de r Yeh. So obviously, maybe thenext next project is like CRI around the corner. There's the one that'sgoing to Saye you, so I think that's an important one and lastbut no at least-and this is the one I learned it's need to find time to really enjoy myself. Ithink these conversations 'cause, like I see these portcastes like semi, thatcross between business and social yeah, ANA cituation hat, which is which iswhich is super important, and I reall like even with my clients, with myfriends with the people ive work with, I always tryed to just like try to keepa light, hearted communication, because a lot of people I find in business a ecould be very uh very, like blocked off like this, like business and seriouswatesmen, an hi Yep yeah m. But I what I find it's like you need to find timeB. I c need to laugh because everyone thinks like. Oh, you go your life andyou go work life. I think it's mostly like it's just life. There's no greaklife, like you, know, work like tha. This is like life, so you need to laughat work and at home. So you need to enjoy yourself like. If you at workmake friends, that's whyt I find weird about they said: Oh, you know, don'tbuild a relationship like Ou know, don't get involved. I know they talkabout like don't date, your ccoworkers and all that stuff and like topicup,two best friends with them. I find that quite odd because you know when we areI school as our friends, our you know, class fellows or whateverclassmates are technically our colicue, so to speak, but we' become bestfriends with them. We date them, but when we go into workplace and somethingwith Uni Wen e' going to workplace, they sell a like. No don't get, don'tget to it. Big FBODYBODY, with your friends or your porse or whatever youre,O e, tren tip ut. Now it brings ou together and some mutual interest youknow have or something you share, and it's just one percent Bondand, I'm yeah,I'm completely against that. Even dating in work place, I know a lot ofpeople disagree with it. I Idon't just pay a Fackan, adol yeah. I think. Ifyou KN Ow, you can be idle, but if you'R honesssy, if you're a child nyou'll, do whatevr the fuck, you e you will anyway, if you're, if you're grownup, and if you can manage that you know, I realize that even if you guys have ayou know, if you're dating someone, your colleague on like a coll again,you guys have a foall out need to realize, like you can't left that, letthat affect business or work or whatever, but I think you do realizeyou work. You're gointo spend majority of your life at work or like workingright Um. So W is Gong to wait till you get hometill seven PM to lauge. Yeto have frands Ma Wai to retirement wai to theway Wa to Rehim Yeh. So I think that's important at least of e Traper, andthen that's s. That leaves me with the court from Andrew Carnegie He's H, 's,a great businessman. He says: There's little successway is littlelaughter, so you W, even he, the great man Andrew Canegie, said it himself aswell as don't take my words. WORT SDOR afte hundred percentandthose are my m,some painful some light. Hearted O Rad Hemallfrom the first one: Okay quickly,we I'll bring them through and someody, actually didn't actually ssate them,because I didn't think they wer that importance. If you want to check out hepholartical building yeah the first IAVE lesson, one, your ideas are notoriginal lessen to you. Can'. You can't do everything onyour own. Less than three passive income doesn't exist, don't poolyourself lessen my favoras that want, and I really lost the county or twothree less than four it. It would be it be best if you were a god at Exel, less than five less than five. I thinkaabout, five AAR less than five youon need. Seventy three mentos lesson: sixcommunication is key lessen. Seven. Your friends are not going to supportyou, but not all friends are going tosupport you. SOMEWHELL UM. You don't always have to agree with your businesspartner and didn't mention this, because I didn't think that was thatpelerment it wasn't that important, but you sometimes you can't agree with YourBusiness Partner, some Ki, you can't, but you can so long as you longest. The vinsion is the same.That's important, YEP youll be disappointed. Often, and youwill fail. Often you will Erha youll have to work longdays, implement beautiful system to make your life easier. For example, apassord manager password on for everything is okay, a as a business person. You have tohave so many passwords and stuffs that get like nice systems to manage allthat etough yet at a last, but no at least enjoy and th. Those are thelessons that I've leant so far. That's a great way to finish that one enjoy itas well in in rapid all up and that's all the process. You've gone throughthings. THAF, you've, that's pre, it migt! That's that's exactly W.
