It's Business Success Tips with your host, Paul, Lee, special guest, Jim, who's with us now. We still have our Brazilian, Brian.
New Zealand. I don't know.
Hey, you're at least in the right hemisphere.
Somewhere, and Andy's getting out of the bathroom. Are you back Andy? Are you going to join us for the show?
Thanks for being here.
So, our listening audience probably knows all of our backgrounds. They don't know Brian's probably.
They know Brian's, they heard it on the last show.
He's been sitting there for a whole week.
I had to go to the
That's right. He's been waiting for this show. So Brian is an investment counselor in New Zealand. Right? And he does investments on the street, so to speak. To the small investor.
And he likes going to farmers.
That's right. He likes farmers and goats. We talked about that too. OK.

We got to do a podcasting for dummies.

What are you guys talking about the Dummies series? I'm not familiar with the series of books.
That's because you don't read.
You only look at the Idiot's guides.
I'm sorry, Lee, I'm busy reading the encyclopedias.
Ok, they're the yellow ones with the funny guy on the front. So you've written lots of books, and a lot about computers, right?
A lot of computer books. And I have a PhD in English
From Northwestern University. I made it to national
Oh my god we have two PhDs in the same room, I am so impressed.
They have a football team, so they count.
Yeah. Big 10.
Ok. So, our distinguished guest,

It would only be one page.
It would be a picture.
And it'd come with crayons...
