00:21
worked on Friday we work all the time
00:22
man but that’s what we do so
00:24
can’t keep growing an empire I’ve tried
00:25
the night I tried that to work Saturday
00:27
but I still got emails and I was I was
00:29
tempted those tempted but I decided not
00:31
to
00:31
but money Mondays we do this every
00:34
Monday you know basically live Q&A we
00:36
want to talk about different topics this
00:38
week we’re gonna talk about major
00:39
productivity acts where I can kind of
00:40
you know a lot of people ask us hey you
00:42
have a lot of different issues going on
00:44
how do you help keep them organized what
00:45
can he do and you know there’s a lot of
00:47
different tips and tricks I mean I
00:48
learned a lot of the stuff extra one of
00:49
our work that Microsoft is a program
00:50
manager that kind of helped me see
00:52
different ways to operate and I know Ben
00:54
you kind of picked up on your own tricks
00:55
as well I feel like tech you know the
00:57
tech industry has done a great job of
00:59
being efficient right and and obviously
01:01
introducing some of these platforms in
01:03
this technology probably way ahead of
01:04
some other industries and so you know
01:07
and this goes across I want people to
01:09
know yes we do multifamily yes we do
01:10
real estate but these can help for any
01:13
entrepreneur right you know you’re
01:14
building a business you need to be
01:16
efficient therefore you know you’ll be
01:18
more productive right absolutely so you
01:20
know with that said I think to me one of
01:22
the most important things of
01:23
entrepreneurialism is not about being
01:26
the A+ student but really about being
01:28
the B student doing it you know don’t
01:30
drop the ball keep something everything
01:31
moving forward but do it well good
01:33
enough yeah right that’s knowing ready
01:35
fire aim a lot of people get stuck right
01:37
on just and it has to be perfect and
01:39
everything has to be lined out right but
01:41
if you never take any action you’re
01:42
never gonna get forward you’re never
01:43
gonna move forward right now you know so
01:45
I think that’s where feriss is coming in
01:47
right is that you have to just you have
01:49
to take action folks you know so we’ll
01:51
give you some of the things that we’ve
01:52
done you know obviously this is not you
01:54
know an end-all be-all list but you know
01:57
we won’t obviously show some people you
01:58
know some of the things that we’ve done
02:00
I’ll let I’ll let Ferriss lead this one
02:02
I said I’ve been talking last couple
02:04
weeks so I’m gonna let him I’m gonna
02:05
grill you I’m always using work to here
02:07
on the laptop from you know the audience
02:09
so yeah anyone walking so you know we’re
02:11
gonna talk through a lot of it again
02:13
just some stuff that we’ve learned
02:14
multiple businesses kind of my
02:16
background in software Ben’s background
02:18
it’s kind of a cell son of his business
02:19
as well so I think combined we have a
02:22
unique mix of things but really you know
02:24
from for this presentation we wanted to
02:26
break it down to the three different
02:27
topics right email tips yep tasks tips
02:30
and meeting tips right and for each of
02:31
these there’s different tools to help
02:32
with that so we figured we talked
02:33
through some of those but first and
02:35
foremost emails that’s the and do you
02:37
get a lot of emails yes for now that’s a
02:40
big yes I’m sure that everybody that is
02:42
in business these days it seems like
02:44
it’s just a perpetual email you know or
02:46
a perpetual meeting so well kind of some
02:48
of the things that we’ve done to kind of
02:50
help out with that you know maybe you
02:51
want to kind of go through some of those
02:53
yeah so I mean to me the first thing I
02:55
think everybody does the same thing with
02:56
email right where they get through
02:58
emails they start to mark the ones that
03:00
they need to fall back up on as unread
03:01
and you know you get lost in it because
03:03
you’re not you maybe it’ll some days not
03:05
follow up to that and that gets further
03:06
down and the next thing you know you’re
03:08
in the situation that a lot of people
03:09
are in which is days behind have
03:11
forgotten about things maybe they
03:12
actually have viewed it on their phone
03:13
they forgot the market on red yep that
03:15
whole minutia right so you know I think
03:17
it’s a terrible way to operate it’s not
03:19
a way to grow it’s not a way to stay
03:20
organized right and one thing that I
03:22
learned early on in Microsoft is the
03:24
power of the archive right and so I
03:27
think a lot of people all the different
03:28
platforms support this now right but
03:30
really archiving your inbox right it’s
03:32
treating it as a tassel so me personally
03:34
every email on my inbox is something
03:36
that I need to do now whether I do today
03:38
or tomorrow next week I never drop
03:39
anything because I don’t move it out of
03:41
my inbox until it’s done okay right and
03:43
so really your archiving things that you
03:45
need to do yeah right no no I Ark are
03:47
the things that are done okay I think my
03:49
inbox is something I need to do so then
03:50
daily whenever a few minutes whatever
03:52
I’ll flip through my inbox and I’ll see
03:53
if there’s something easy maybe have I
03:54
know I have two minutes or something
03:56
he’s I can quickly get done or maybe I
03:58
have carved out an hour or two and I’m
03:59
gonna go really plow through like later
04:01
today that’s what I’m probably gonna be
04:02
doing going through we have a lot of
04:03
accounting stuff to get done and you
04:04
know it’s just well I had five minutes I
04:06
worked on one of them a little bit ago
04:07
but really it’s that I know my inboxes
04:09
had everything that anyone is asking for
04:11
me right in what’s interesting is over
04:13
time you will start to realize that some
04:15
things become that or urgent are no
04:17
longer relevant right for a variety of
04:19
reasons right and so that’s one little
04:21
thing about it but the important thing
04:23
has become someone that people know is
04:26
not gonna forget about stuff right be
04:27
the guy that’s repinning others not the
04:29
guy that’s getting repaint yeah
04:30
right and you know and then for me if
04:31
someone read things on something then
04:33
it’s become word right then it you know
04:35
goes up to the top of the inbox and I
04:36
might follow up then because now I know
04:37
a person’s waiting on it right but I
04:39
think that’s one big thing the other two
04:41
big things these are things I’m still
04:42
trying to teach been here but really the
04:44
power of snooze and the power of you
04:48
know sends later as well I like the
04:49
schedule I like that yeah you know I’m
04:51
talking through satellite oh what’s the
04:52
power what’s the use case when would you
04:54
want to use that right right and again
04:55
so we use we use office 365 we were on
04:58
Google suite as well both of them have
04:59
that most providers have that
05:01
functionality so then later folks is
05:03
just you know obviously you’re typing up
05:04
an email but you’re saying you know what
05:06
it’s late you know maybe I’ll mark this
05:08
at 9 o’clock or 10 o’clock the next
05:11
morning so it’s at the top of somebody’s
05:12
inbox when they’re ready to actually do
05:14
something with it right versus sitting
05:16
in the end of the day then they get
05:17
emails overnight then they made me get
05:18
some more in the morning and now you’re
05:20
at the bottom of of their email list
05:22
right so you know that’s that’s one way
05:25
to use that right you know the other way
05:27
is to kind of you know for certain folks
05:29
you don’t want to immediately email them
05:31
back right you know you it’s almost a
05:33
training thing for some folks right you
05:35
know so you want to say hey I’m not
05:37
gonna yes I can I can type this up and
05:39
respond very quickly but that doesn’t
05:41
mean that I’m necessarily gonna send it
05:42
right so maybe I want to send that
05:44
tomorrow just so folks know that they
05:47
can’t expect on certain things that I’m
05:49
going to immediately respond even that
05:50
or even if you have that if you’re
05:51
talking to someone that you know is the
05:53
perpetual person that drops the ball
05:54
that you need to follow up on I’ve
05:55
gotten to the point where I’ll send my
05:56
initial email and I’ll send a follow-up
05:58
email maybe for two days later and then
06:00
I just tell myself okay I know if I hear
06:02
back from this person I need to go back
06:05
but really you know it’s about it’s
06:07
about how far you want to push it right
06:08
but you know against emulators an
06:10
important functionality because again
06:11
people check their inboxes the first
06:14
thing in the morning and you know really
06:16
I like to aim for emails that hit
06:17
people’s inbox are on that 10 o’clock
06:18
right after they’ve gone through the
06:19
first pass yep right the most people
06:22
again do that old approach where they’re
06:23
going through their inbox one by one
06:25
and so really boom you know they’re
06:27
active they’re sitting at their computer
06:28
10 o’clock yep and then you know snoozes
06:30
and other ones so snooze if your room
06:32
was an interesting well I always do the
06:33
sin later one but once you talk about
06:35
snooze so snooze is you know
06:37
newer concept actually I think male
06:38
clients really you know I think Google
06:40
added it four five years ago and officer
06:43
c5 just added it a little last month but
06:45
really it’s the concept of a few user
06:47
inbox as your to do to lists or you’ve
06:49
task list like I do right then what I do
06:52
is actually some things that are not
06:54
relevant immediately where maybe I you
06:57
know something I need to follow up on in
06:58
a week alright rather than sit in my
07:00
inbox for weeks I don’t forget about it
07:01
you snooze it and all it does it moves
07:04
it to another temporary folder for that
07:05
time interval and then it brings it back
07:07
to my emboss whenever it’s relevant and
07:09
so for example I might send up a you
07:12
know what’s does a good example I might
07:13
send an email to you then and maybe I
07:15
know I need to follow up on it after a
07:17
week and so I’ll snooze it and say okay
07:19
this email – news it for seven days
07:20
seven days later comes back into my top
07:22
of my inbox oh yeah I need to fall back
07:24
up to Bend on this boom you know it’s
07:25
like it’s in everything in there so it
07:27
helps you clean up your inbox because
07:28
really my inbox you know I try to keep
07:31
the things that are relevant things that
07:32
I’m working on now if it’s something
07:33
maybe something I just don’t even want
07:34
to follow up on for a while I’ll snooze
07:36
that out of my inbox to kind of keep
07:37
that in box clean yep right and so again
07:39
that’s a really powerful function
07:41
because it helps you kind of manage your
07:44
inbox and stay kind of clean and
07:46
organized and have that as your source
07:48
of information so yeah absolutely so all
07:51
right so what about task tips right and
07:53
what before because you talked about the
07:55
platform used for email right what do we
07:57
use for tasks so we use a sauna before
07:59
we go into tasks really quick recap for
08:01
those who join us for the first time
08:02
more on moneymondays try to do it every
08:04
Monday we try to go through different
08:05
topics this week we’re talking with
08:07
productivity tips and you know feel free
08:09
to ask questions rather and our goal is
08:10
live QA and so we’ll go through you know
08:13
leave a comment we’ll talk through it so
08:15
new or says hey hey know what how’s it
08:16
going long time no see
08:18
right back let’s see so Ryan looks great
08:22
thanks Ryan appreciate your help
08:23
obviously a big part of that and we’ll
08:26
keep going so task tip so we use a tool
08:28
called asana
08:29
that’s what we like to use but again all
08:31
of the different products have their own
08:33
version built in right
08:34
google has I hate Google’s the name of
08:37
theirs I don’t even use it it’s uh it’s
08:39
kind of yellow it’s a little sticky list
08:40
thing I forget what it’s called it’s
08:42
called uh I’m gonna look it up just for
08:44
those watching keep that’s why that’s
08:46
why I don’t like that Google has keep
08:47
right you know nobody’s using Microsoft
08:49
as Microsoft lists now
08:50
and outlook has its own functionality
08:52
right but you know we like to use tasks
08:55
in the sense of collaboration all right
08:57
so you know I recommend everyone should
08:59
have a way to keep their self organized
09:01
right Trello a sauna sauna has a free
09:03
plan that we you know people use for a
09:05
long time right but really keep it there
09:09
or you can not only do you have the
09:10
topic but really documenting what’s
09:12
happening even to yourself I should
09:13
leave comments to myself whenever
09:15
something would happen relevant to tasks
09:17
right whether tonight I had an ideas
09:18
list and I’d kind of updated throughout
09:20
but now really the power becomes
09:22
whenever you have to collaborate with
09:23
people right so we have the entire
09:24
company on asana we create tasks we can
09:27
follow up on them whenever we want to
09:28
people help people stay organized
09:30
because as an entrepreneur one tip that
09:32
I like to tell people is people are half
09:35
as productive if they don’t know what to
09:36
do right people know what they should
09:38
you know what to work on
09:39
they’re not spending as much time
09:41
including ourselves figuring out the
09:43
what right versus if it’s really clean
09:45
organized they have time they’re focused
09:47
they know what to work through boom boom
09:48
boom boom boom right and the other
09:50
benefit of a task it helps you
09:51
understand workloads and are you heading
09:54
very trending towards hitting a
09:56
milestone meaning you know a lawn a
09:58
launch date or something else and so I
10:00
think that’s another really big one that
10:01
I think that not a lot of people do a
10:03
lot of people do the stickies on the
10:04
laptop a lot of people you know I used
10:06
to do the notepad but you know takes a
10:09
second to leverage a tool that’s
10:11
designed for it and you know use it
10:13
effectively to where you’re not gonna
10:14
waste a lot of your time as well right I
10:16
think that’s the trick and then I think
10:17
we’ve seen the most kind of benefit you
10:19
know two things at least in my world
10:20
right you know and as everybody kind of
10:22
knows you know me and first kind of
10:24
divide and conquer here at disrupt but
10:27
on acquisitions right the closing
10:29
process there’s a lot of moving pieces
10:30
there’s a lot of tasks that have to
10:32
happen right and so assigning those to
10:34
the various people that are part of that
10:36
that process right that’s huge you know
10:38
we always kind of we always describers
10:39
are really our role especially I’m not
10:41
closing is just we’re a project manager
10:43
on steroids I guess there’s a time
10:48
crunch to that too so it kind of it
10:50
makes it even more stressful and and but
10:52
so you’re moving a lot of movement
10:53
things moving forward right and so
10:55
having that asana and having those tasks
10:57
all kind of lined out ahead of time and
10:59
just going Boom Boom Boom Boom Boom down
11:00
little line makes things a lot easier
11:02
right but also on construction
11:04
management
11:04
right there’s a lot of different moving
11:06
pieces that happen during a rehab when
11:08
you’re talking about rehabbing uh you
11:10
know multi-million dollar you know
11:11
apartment complex or whatever it might
11:13
be you know there’s millions of dollars
11:15
going in and out and you have to
11:16
understand you know what you need to
11:18
spend your money on what’s left in your
11:19
project was that was that due date hit
11:22
by the general contractor or the vendor
11:23
right you know and this keeps everybody
11:25
on track right and then not to say that
11:27
you have to get your vendor on there but
11:29
it’s more so just a to-do list for you
11:31
right to keep them honest you know so I
11:33
think that that’s where a sauna has been
11:35
really helpful for me personally and
11:37
keeping up with these tasks in these
11:39
projects right yeah so meetings I think
11:41
between emails and meetings this used to
11:44
be a perpetual time suck for most
11:46
entrepreneurs man so what are some what
11:48
are some tips and tricks and helpful
11:50
things so I mean we’re not perfect I
11:52
could perfect at this right as we grow
11:54
more and more meetings become more
11:55
necessary and they start you figure out
11:57
that dynamic but you know first thing is
11:59
really having this consistent right be
12:02
consistent about it be you know
12:04
organized and have a method to it right
12:06
and so consistency means at the same
12:08
time of day same point you know don’t
12:09
just skip meetings or just push them on
12:11
a whim right but be active and try to
12:13
have them and it’s not gonna be perfect
12:14
but really do your best the other part
12:17
of it is come with an agenda right and
12:20
really this is something we’re trying to
12:21
be better about but have like a more you
12:23
know I’m more structured to it where you
12:25
spend the first few minutes maybe
12:26
putting together the agenda then working
12:28
through it then you spend to the last
12:29
couple minutes doing a wrap-up I think
12:31
there’s an art to running a productive
12:33
meeting stir a lot there and then maybe
12:34
the last but not least we’re trying to
12:36
we’ve actually been doing basically
12:38
where we’re do kind of a brief 30-minute
12:39
stand up with kind of different team
12:41
members and then a different time
12:42
interval where you’re doing a deeper
12:43
dive right where they know hey hey you
12:47
know what are the immediate fires and
12:48
then save all the other you know kind of
12:50
hallway chatter or other conversations
12:51
for later right and so really again be
12:54
methodical and disciplined about how
12:56
you’re on your meetings because as we
12:58
know it’s very easy to get overwhelmed a
13:00
meetings and maybe you checked an email
13:02
into and now you have to work through
13:04
your entire inbox that we talked about
13:05
how to off work through already right so
13:06
and some other things too and this is
13:08
just you know some common-sense stuff
13:09
for some things that we’ve kind of read
13:11
about right you know I mean you could
13:12
have meetings where you know no phones
13:14
allowed right you know I mean you have a
13:15
lot of people that are in there they’re
13:17
on
13:17
they’re in the meeting right and they’re
13:18
all typing away on their laptop or
13:20
they’re typing away on their phone right
13:21
you know that’s not a productive meeting
13:23
right you you assume all meetings should
13:25
be no more than 30 to 60 minutes right
13:28
so if it’s taking longer than that
13:29
there’s probably something wrong right
13:31
either you didn’t do the agenda like
13:32
first I mentioned or you guys are not
13:34
staying on task and getting things done
13:36
quickly during the meeting right so you
13:38
know maybe saying no cell phones no
13:40
laptops unless you know one person’s
13:42
taking notes right I’ve also heard
13:44
things like you know where people come
13:46
in they have to stand for the whole
13:47
meeting right who wants to stand for a
13:49
whole entire meeting right you know and
13:51
so but that that forces people to get to
13:55
the point and get what that meeting is
13:57
for done so they can get out and go sit
13:59
down or whatever they got to do right
14:01
you know but if you get in that nice
14:02
comfy chair and you’re kind of sitting
14:04
back with your cell phone and your latte
14:06
you know who cares that the meeting
14:08
tastes two hours right yeah and so
14:10
that’s another tip that I’ve seen people
14:12
do luckily I haven’t had to force him to
14:14
stand so I think we’re doing all right
14:17
that’s very true you know these are just
14:20
some of the ones you know that we’ve
14:22
seen right and there’s probably plenty
14:23
of others I’d encourage anybody that’s
14:25
that’s listing right now if you have any
14:27
tips and tricks when it comes to emails
14:29
task management meetings please dump
14:31
them in the comments I’d love to hear
14:32
more right we’re always looking to be
14:34
more productive and I’m sure our fellow
14:36
entrepreneurs are as well yeah I am so I
14:39
even heard people that as part of their
14:41
meeting agenda they have a few minutes
14:43
carved out for you know small talk and
14:45
cordial conversation yeah yeah you could
14:48
build that in those first five minutes
14:49
of the agenda is just let’s get it all
14:51
out of the way right you know how was
14:53
the weekend you know all that stuff and
14:54
then you get right to the point
14:56
right if you build that into agenda I
14:58
think that that’s that’s an important
14:59
way to kind of keep it moving forward
15:00
instead of having that chatter
15:01
throughout the meeting all right so I
15:04
know we got a couple questions ahead of
15:06
time man yeah so we got any questions
15:08
kind of from from you know online
15:09
beforehand so we’ll probably go through
15:11
those mhm if anyone else has any more
15:12
questions feel free to dump them well
15:14
we’ll kind of talk about how we do one
15:16
we’re just pairing guys happy to talk
15:18
about productivity tips or if you want
15:19
to talk about other things right I know
15:21
one of the questions we got was a little
15:23
bit more general about real estate so
15:24
we’ll go through that yeah we’ll go
15:25
through others as well so definitely
15:26
feel free to go ahead and drop it
15:28
comments alright so let’s start off with
15:30
and we’ve talked about some of this but
15:32
what are some of the software processes
15:33
do you utilize to increase productivity
15:35
and you know I think it’s having a
15:37
method to the madness around your email
15:39
have a plan don’t just do email right
15:41
but really be methodical about it clean
15:43
up your inbox run it like a business yep
15:46
quote-unquote you know we like asana
15:48
trillo’s grade slack teams we you know
15:51
those are definitely great tools and
15:52
have these things to talk together
15:54
alright we’re getting to a point where
15:55
teams or slack has kind of become your
15:57
you know your command center right we’re
15:59
all the things that are relevant are
16:00
getting notified into those products and
16:02
then that’s where you go to monitor
16:03
what’s going on so you’re not spending
16:05
too much your time looking all over the
16:06
place you have one central place that
16:07
you can kind of work through us I think
16:09
that’s a big one um anything else that’s
16:11
that Ben no I think that that sort of
16:13
good platforms right you know I mean
16:14
find what works for you there’s a ton of
16:16
things out there right you know I think
16:19
crms are also another thing that we
16:21
probably should include and just kind of
16:22
you know keeping up with your contacts
16:25
and keeping up with a pipeline if you’re
16:26
in sales right you know that’s another
16:28
platform that you can probably you know
16:30
be more productive on versus just kind
16:33
of trying to remember who you’re
16:34
supposed to follow up with right it’s
16:35
it’s kind of systematized you know but
16:38
those are probably some of the bigger
16:39
ones so just so people know right we use
16:41
office 365 we’re using asana and we now
16:45
recently gone from slack to teams so you
16:48
know just we using confluence as well I
16:50
guess we talked about that confluence is
16:52
a tool that we use internally for kind
16:53
of knowledge hub yeah right so kind of
16:55
where people document all the processes
16:57
all the things and think of it as an
16:59
internal Wikipedia we can cross link
17:01
things you can reference things search
17:02
or stuff etc so I think that’s been
17:04
pretty cool yeah yeah so alright so on
17:06
to a more real estate related question
17:09
and this one might be a tough one I was
17:11
reading this before the you know the the
17:13
kickoff here how to make money online
17:15
through real estate online there’s the
17:17
catch now not how to make money through
17:18
real estate how to make money online you
17:21
know I mean the one thing that came to
17:24
my mind and this was obviously pre coded
17:26
as affiliate marketing you know for
17:28
conferences and training and stuff like
17:31
that then it’s related to real estate
17:33
you know and I’m sure maybe even on some
17:36
single-family stuff and maybe someone
17:38
off asset classes that we’re just not
17:39
familiar with
17:41
there’s probably ways to try to automate
17:43
it and do a lot of that online maybe
17:44
through your marketing and stuff like
17:45
that but ultimately when it comes to
17:48
apartment complex investing you got to
17:50
get on the phone you got to be boots on
17:52
it I guess it really means well I wonder
17:54
what the question really means because
17:55
another way is really learn the stuff
17:57
we’re just talking about and go help
17:58
other guys implement it yeah become a
18:00
consultant where you’re helping talk
18:01
through these different Mena business
18:03
initiatives how to roll them out and
18:05
helping you know guys will pay for that
18:07
I’m not I mean I meet our friends and
18:09
pay really good money to help them learn
18:12
how to systematize more of their
18:14
business right we’ve spent hundreds of
18:16
hours building out all the stuff that we
18:18
do have right that’s worth something to
18:20
people so if you can help them do that
18:21
that’s that’s probably a good way to do
18:23
no I mean to all of our tech and project
18:25
management and operations folks like you
18:27
have a valuable skill set right you know
18:29
go lend yourself to maybe a syndication
18:32
team that might be living in the past
18:34
and say hey how can I make your
18:36
operation better and therefore add value
18:39
and then maybe get part of the deal
18:40
right or maybe part of the organization
18:42
who knows right you know but using some
18:44
of those online platforms is probably
18:46
another way of kind of making money
18:48
online right so tips for transitioning
18:51
to full-time real estate investor all
18:54
right well I think you know the tip is
18:56
really do it piecemeal I think some
18:58
people think they’re gonna make a
18:59
million bucks and the first deal and hop
19:02
right in know where I’m gonna get a deal
19:03
in two months no you don’t know what the
19:04
future holds
19:05
Yeah right kind of build up to it and
19:07
realize that real estate is not about
19:09
making a quick buck but it is about
19:11
making a buck Yeah right and so in the
19:13
long term it does pay off right but it’s
19:15
about you know being methodical just
19:18
like your email you know can you be
19:19
methodical about real estate keep
19:20
analyzing deals keep underwriting keep
19:22
making offers and grow into it right it
19:24
takes several deals to have actual you
19:27
know mass of money behind you right and
19:29
make sure you perform I mean that’s a
19:30
fundamental thing you’re not gonna be
19:32
able to keep doing deals if you can’t
19:33
perform right it’s about you know have a
19:36
plan juggle your w-2 at the same time
19:38
right a lot of people do that it’s fine
19:40
right and it’s a good way to get started
19:41
so that we have a safety net you can
19:43
kind of keep crawling right and so I
19:45
think you know really figure out what
19:47
your minimum income needed is right and
19:50
figure out can you get to that or almost
19:52
that just by doing it on the side
19:54
right whether that’s being a passive or
19:55
maybe you have cash and you’re you know
19:57
you want to be a passive investor for a
19:58
while just have cash flow and then you
20:00
can transition to being this indicator
20:02
or not I mean everyone does different
20:03
things right we’ve seen it all but those
20:05
are some things I would probably add to
20:07
that right you know make sure you have
20:09
ample reserves especially nowadays right
20:11
you’re in the midst of kovat things are
20:14
still a little uncertain I’d have at
20:15
least 12 months folks of your bills your
20:19
mortgage all that good stuff
20:20
and just you know realize once you step
20:22
away right you know and everybody’s
20:24
gonna know this you know your company is
20:26
paying some level benefits right you
20:27
know usually burden can be up to 33% of
20:30
what somebody is is either making or
20:32
just their full compensation package so
20:35
realize that if you’re just saving up
20:37
just to make that salaried amount right
20:39
out of that salaried amount now you’re
20:41
paying a hundred percent of your health
20:43
insurance you’re not having maybe a
20:45
match under 401 K or whatever so I’m
20:47
always saying go above and beyond that
20:49
right and and at bare minimum have
20:51
twelve months because it does take time
20:53
you know we’re we’re starting to see
20:54
some deals start kind of percolating but
20:57
you know ultimately pre-coated days are
21:01
probably still six to twelve months from
21:02
now in terms of deal flow so just be
21:04
aware of that and understand that it
21:06
could be a little bit of a slow go for
21:07
the time being yeah I think that’s what
21:10
we got I think that’s it if anyone else
21:12
has any questions you know feel free to
21:13
write it out like I said we do this
21:14
every Monday live Q&A a lot of different
21:17
topics feel free to ask anything you
21:18
want you can ask me where I got my nice
21:20
haircut
21:21
you can ask Ben where he lost his hair
21:22
I’m happy to talk about also why does it
21:24
always have to be the joke why do I have
21:26
to be the bird the brunt of the jokes
21:27
hey man I have my hair just for you know
21:30
we want to keep it we want to keep this
21:32
