Listen to this podcast
Hello, and for some reason you've stopped by Business Success Tips again. Good for you! Good for you. Anyway, I'm joined as always with Lee and Paul.
We have Sean Daley.
He keeps coming back. We like it, though.
He keeps coming back for more.
And Tim, our engineer.
And this is the holiday pre-Christmas but not yet quite Christmas show.
Happy Holidays. And we're going to talk about in this, we're starting to do four segments on this, there's going to be four shows cut into 15, one hour show cut into 15 minute segments.
A month of entertainment.
A month of entertainment that they can anxiously await, it's like a, for the next exciting show.
Well I don't know about anxious.
We're going to try, it's really weird not having headphones. I've never done that before.
Yeah, it is weird.
I feel disconnected with the podcast experience.
I feel disconnected from the group, we're just talking like regular people now, it doesn't quite seem so,
You know what it is, we all like hearing our own voices in our headphones, that's what it is.
That's what it is. We're missing that sex appeal.
It does sound really good.
I see. You like listening to yourself. So, we're going to talk about how to start a business with no money because we kept telling everybody quit your job. That's if you don't like your job. If you love your job, keep your job. But if you don't like your job, your most valuable asset is time. And to spend that on something you don't like is truly a waste. So if you're in a bad job, you're in a bad relationship, you're in a bad house, anything that really sucks, then you should change it because you only have so much time on the planet. My personal way I do it is you should live life like you're going to live and die in three years. So I mean, 10 years is too long, but a year you'd probably make dumb mistakes. But you figure I'm going to live for three years and die, and you make your decisions based on that, I think you'll have a pretty good grasp of time. What do you think about that, Sean?
Yeah, that's interesting. The one year thing would be to probably get prerequisites. You might actually be able to fulfill your own reality there.
Come on, I've got enough money, I can last a year, why work?
Yeah, go for it.
Yeah, if you can get over the morbidity of it, I get where you're saying there. It's like people who have near death experiences, right, they live life in a full way. I think if you can keep that mindset, you know, it's like death is a teacher, you know, so I think that is really cool.
Well I think the other part of it too, is that, you know, a near death experience can also help you realize how well off you are to begin with, and to make sure you stay that way.
Right. Perspective is all relative, right.
Well I went to a relationship counselor this week, among my many experiences, and,
Are you trying to get along with me?
That's right. And, what he was talking about, he's been doing this for 35 years, he's really, really good at it. And what I got from him which was great, was he really cared and loved people and really wanted to make things work, which I thought was great. Cause when we work with clients, JC and I genuinely want to help them, and I think they pick up that. In fact I think we sort of get paid to you know, to love people and care about them, and that's why I get $350 an hour, it sounds a little, you know.
I think anybody who's good at what they do, though, has that attitude. I mean, have you ever been to a doctor who doesn't care about the outcome of your health?
I mean, do you go back?
No. No. I have met those doctors.
I mean, hopefully, the doctor cares. I mean I remember when my doctor explained to me that I had a heart condition and that I had to go get a heart transplant. He literally had tears in his eyes to tell me. He said you're too young to have this happen, and he was really, really upset. And we've become really close friends ever since. And I think that kind of caring matters, no matter what kind of a service you provide.
What kind, because I, this guy's been doing this for 35...
