Once again, we are on episode number five. My name is George Lopez. Welcome to the Project Life podcast in this week, I'm super excited, we have our first guest on the show, Mr. Oscar ring goannas good friend of mine business owner lives in the North Texas Dallas Fort Worth area. And I'm going to bring him on here in a little bit. And he's just going to kind of share his story with us, he's going to touch on a few things that we've talked about over the past couple weeks in regards to scheduling, and regards to making plans and kind of how things have panned out for him. You know, he's a normal average Joe, like myself, who's kind of found a way to make things work and has become very successful, his own multiple businesses along the way, and just has a few good words for you guys. And I'm super excited. But just to recap, know, last week, we talked about scheduling, right and defining activities and getting all that stuff kind of planned out and looking at life or looking at the project and understanding what is involved in durations that are involved in scheduling, breaking it down to the nitty gritty, to the point to where you can even, you know, break it down on a week by week, day by day type schedule, so you know, what you can have, what it's going to take, right, and I continuously use, you know, going back to school and losing weight, and things, those examples and projects that you could take on with your life. And you can actually break those down into smaller pieces, and put them on a schedule and say, Hey, part of my workout plan or my project to lose 30 pounds, 20 pounds, whatever the case may be, involves me doing two workouts a day one in the morning that I'm going to set for 5am the other in the evening at 7pm. And then you can always modify those things as they go. But you define that activity you understand between your what and why statement on I want to lose weight for myself for my health for my family. And it's going to take requiring to burn X amount of calories, you know, per day, which I'm going to break into two workouts and so on and so forth, guys. So, you know that kind of touched last week show in previously we've talked about what and why statements and breaking down, you know, who's a stakeholder in our project outside of ourselves? How are they impacted by this project? understanding what the project really consists of breaking down the nitty gritty and getting down to the roots of what the project really consist of, that's really going to be the things that create that what and why statement. And then as you start to build your schedules, you can kind of start to see the writing on the wall to see what needs to happen, how it's going to happen, where are you gonna fit it into your life. And then you kind of go from there. in coming weeks, we'll go ahead and talk about, you know, how can you modify, how can you check and balance and make sure everything works because your initial schedule, your initial kind of assessment at things maybe not, didn't pan out the way that you had initially thought in things became more extensive, needed more time needed more money needed more energy out of you along the way, and we'll touch on those in the coming weeks. But until then, we are going to jump into our first guests and I am super excited to bring him in, guys without further ado, welcome Mr. Oscar rincones. Oscar, how are you buddy?\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":248.0,"body":"I'm great How you doing?\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":250.0,"body":"I'm good man. I'm good just trying to survive with everything going on with this whole COVID-19 but you know, we're we're making everyday work, man.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":260.0,"body":"We've got to make the best of it.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":262.0,"body":"That's what we're trying to do. But Oscar man, I greatly appreciate you being on the show. And you know, we've we've known each other for a few years now. And I know you've felt kind of a certain kind of way when I decided to do the show and to kind of reach out to people and kind of give people you know, an outlet or, you know, folks to look up to and you know, especially right now things are tough for a lot of people. And you know, we're trying to open up a platform on how to help people improve their way of life, you know, looking at things kind of like a project but you know, not necessarily like it probably Management sense, kind of just kind of go through your story a little bit, kind of give us a little bit of background, you know, I know, kind of like, are you just kind of a an average guy that has found a way to make it but you know, have put certain things in place to kind of help us get to where we're at?\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":318.0,"body":"Yeah, so for me, man, what, what I would say is kind of like, my driving factor, or something that I learned at an early age was work ethic. You know, my, my grandfather's always owned restaurants his entire life. And naturally, I wanted to be like him, you know, we look up to people and want to be like them. So he, he started paying me 50 cents an hour, I think when I was eight years old, and, but he taught me the work ethic and how to manage money and, and do what's right, so forth, and so on. So that's kind of where it came from. So from eight years old, working on my grandfather's restaurants on the weekends, to, you know, now, I'm in high school, and, you know, I was, I've always been my own person, and I hated going to my parents and saying, hey, I want to go with my friends can ask for money, we're gonna go see a movie, or what have you. You know, if I didn't, if they didn't have the money, I just didn't want to then\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":385.0,"body":"guess what, I didn't get to go. So\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":387.0,"body":"for me, it was easy, just on your money. And you don't have to ask for anything, you know, and you get to do what you want. And so that that's kind of, again, where it went further. And I was working all weekend and after football, tried to work and I just I hated telling myself No, whenever I wanted to do something.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":410.0,"body":"And so growing,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":412.0,"body":"and learning and then now here it is, I'm a teen college wasn't enough. It wasn't in the cards for me. Actually, I I my high school dropout, but I ended up getting my GED. And, and it wasn't anything specific. about high school, you know, I wasn't hanging out with the wrong crowd or anything. It just honestly got to the point to where I was annoyed. I was annoyed by the teachers treating me like I was a kid, another kid back then mature, you know, I just felt like it wasn't for\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":447.0,"body":"me. And so\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":451.0,"body":"what High School immediately, I moved to Miami, and I worked with, with my dad's company, and just a backup for me, you know, him and I didn't always have the best relationship. But he was a great father. I moved out when I was 17. They went to school still work. But him and I just couldn't get along. We couldn't live in the same house together. And so and, you know, tried to finish school, and like I said, I just felt like it wasn't for me anymore. And when I moved to Miami, I\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":490.0,"body":"needed people,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":492.0,"body":"you know, that can actually move from Dallas to Miami and I had a clean background and competitive drug tests and everything. And then this was back in 2005. They were paying $23 an hour, and all the overtime that you want it. And so I immediately went there I called the foreman. He's like, get get out here. I was like, Okay, cool. And so I'm 18 year old guy, I'm, you know, doing well for myself getting to experience\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":518.0,"body":"everything. And,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":521.0,"body":"you know, just, I met one of my neighbors. He was an older gentleman. in his mid 50s, he took a liking to me and started talking about investing and managing mining and like, of course, everything that I was super excited about, you know, that I had my complete interest. He was there to talk about it.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":542.0,"body":"So from there, I did marketing\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":546.0,"body":"with a marketing firm out of New Orleans called level 10 marketing.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":552.0,"body":"And so\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":554.0,"body":"did that job, they move me around, I I always excelled in every company really fast, because I was motivated by being the best put in the best effort. You know, going in early working, we can stay in late, you know, just leaving everybody in all in all areas of the work. And so I felt really fast and, you know, then the crash in 2008 happened and, you know, all my clients were the small dealerships and small town. And so they got hit the hardest, that same line. So\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":592.0,"body":"got into credit repair and Georgia xeno.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":597.0,"body":"You know, I ended up opening up my own company\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":600.0,"body":"And had a chance of about three and a half years after opening to sell and virtually become debt free. And that into the mortgage business. I got recruited, they found me the buyer, my business, started working with the mortgage company did very well. It was exciting not to have to manage people, you know, and credit repair. I didn't mean to start that business, it kind of came to me in a way, I just couldn't find a company that had the right morals or their morals didn't align with mine. And so one of my referral sources, man, just start your own company. And so that's kind of what happened. And fast forward a year later, I did. We Genesis credit solution did $12,000 short of a million dollars, its first year in business. Oh, wow. And that was without any advertising that was with no, you know, no marketing, like, halfway through that I didn't even have a website, you know, it's just the word of mouth. And, and, you know, the trust that people put in to me. So that recruited to the mortgage company to launch a new product. I told them, I wasn't excited about managing people. You know, I just sold my business that had 32 employees, and I said, if you're one match my pay, and I'll have to manage people sign me up. So that's what happened. Six months later, I'm starting to manage people,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":703.0,"body":"then,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":704.0,"body":"then it was like a team, you know, hey, build this team out, before I knew it all those same headaches were back. Why that was such a problem for me is because, you know, within a world, let me tell you, I have a seven year old, I have a three year old and I have a nine month old. And so I value that time with them, and trying to manage big kids, while trying to save time for the little kids that you have. It's not so easy. And so\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":737.0,"body":"you know, I was there at\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":740.0,"body":"mid America mortgage for two years. And so I told them, I said, Look, you know, I'm doing the things I told you, I didn't want to do. But I'm, what I'm going to do is I'm just going to hire and train my replacement. And I'm going to be out of here in three months. And of course, they\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":758.0,"body":"tried to offer more money and\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":762.0,"body":"you know, try to relieve my stress level. And it just my heart wasn't in it, I had already made up my mind. My wife will tell you once that happens, you know, there's no turning back. And it's true. You know, if I go with something, it's because I've thought about it on both sides, you know, what good can happen? And, and what's not so good. So I made up my mind to, to ease it, then it was like so what do I do now,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":790.0,"body":"only the\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":792.0,"body":"better position was I had zero debt at this point. Because the cell in my business, paid everything off. My wife is a school counselor. So financially, you know, we can live off of what she made if if we had to.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":809.0,"body":"But the benefit to that was,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":812.0,"body":"I can now do whatever it is that I want to do and not have to work. You know, we had savings and\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":819.0,"body":"you know, low rely\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":823.0,"body":"liabilities monthly.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":826.0,"body":"So it was easy for me. And so now what I'm doing is I'm ceramic coating, people's personal airplanes and jets and time, sports cars. So I get to be around a lot of cool stuff. My clients find me everywhere. I'm\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":843.0,"body":"about to be a pilot myself.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":847.0,"body":"It's a really fun and exciting area to do business. It really is and how I got started with that was I've always kept my vehicles clean. And then I started trading my neighbor's you know, you cut my grass and I washed your car. And then it's Hey, all machine polish your car, if you hate Christmas light, well then wordstar to get out then other neighbors are like, Why just want to pay you to do it. You know? And then ceramic coatings came in before I mean this and this is\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":879.0,"body":"all within\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":880.0,"body":"like, it started with the car\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":882.0,"body":"washes when I was at mid America.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":886.0,"body":"And by this point\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":887.0,"body":"on the weekend, I'm making 1000 bucks in two days, you know? Yeah. And so I'm like, I can do this, you know, of course. 1000 bucks a week is Huge pay drop, then what I'm accustomed to, but at this point to me, time with my family was worth more. And if I can still contribute for a couple years and you know, my wife was like, if you're happy, you know, this is the happiest I've seen you just stay where you're at, you know that that's fine. But I'm about a month after I had left mortgage company, my neighbor down the street to say I got an airplane. You want to put that ceramic stuff on my airplane?\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":935.0,"body":"I was like, yeah.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":937.0,"body":"And so first of all, what do you mean, you have an airplane, you know, because back then I didn't know anything about I'm like, man who's multimillionaire living demonstrates to me. You know, he's got an airplane. And of course, he does most himself. But yeah, so anyway, so I go, he goes, so where my airplane is at, it's at the flight school, and I'm the only f my airplane is the only one that's fair, that is not a bicycle. He goes, so it's going to be in a big hangar, there's going to be a lot of people coming and going, you know, just take as long as you need and then pay. Tell me what I owe you at the end. Of course, there was some trust there. And, and so it took me about four days. And at the end of those four days, I had already had deposits on for other airplanes from pilots that were that own their own plane, and they were seeing what I was doing.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1001.0,"body":"They wanted that down to their airplane.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1004.0,"body":"And so and then at the end of the, whenever I was done with my neighbor's plane, he hit me $3,000. So I'm like, Okay, yeah, I was like, so he gave me $3,000 in four days. That's the kind of money I'm used to, you know, plus, I still now have a three day weekend, you know, I could do a plane a week, right. And with those other four planes, I'm done, you know, like, for a month, that's, you know, now back to 150 I was making every year, you know, and I'm getting to work on airplanes, be my own boss. And if I could just get faster at that. I can get it done in two days, maybe three days, you know. And, of course, it didn't work out that way. What ended up happening was more people heard about what I was doing, and more people started calling. And now almost two years later, I've only given out one box of business cards. I still don't have a website, I still don't mark it, I don't do anything. I just hired my fifth person. And George, I'm trying to like keep the growth down. Like because I know what it's like to manage people. And again, I just don't want to deal with that right now. But the I mean, people are just the demand is there for this and nobody's there to fill it.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1091.0,"body":"Yeah, that's a untapped market. If you really look at it, you know, it's it's a very small niche of folks that, you know, when we start talking, you know, high end cars and airplanes, you know, that's a small pool of people that, you know, actually try to hit that niche. So definitely.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1111.0,"body":"Yeah, yeah. And, and it's like those people that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on their planes, they want it to look the best that they can, because, you know, maybe not for everybody, but it would be for me, like if, you know, one day when I bought my airplane, like, you know, of course, I try to be humble. But I mean, that's going to show my hard work. And that's something that I can travel with my family, and we can do more. And of course, at the same time knowing that not too many people get to experience that or get to own one but but yes, the second what you're saying, yes, they want it to look their best and best a lot of money in it. Of course, their planes, not the only thing that they have nice. There's always, you know, a collection of cars or their personal vehicle that they want me to polish and ceramic coat and now, I, I don't even do the cars unless I've done the airplane before, which is in a way kind of created more demand. And I'm truly in a blessed position because nobody's ever done what I'm doing. Of course, with all my past experience, I'm not just an educated guy that doesn't know how to present themselves for or carry a conversation that's going to work, you know, make their airplane look nice. Like, you know, all of my customers become my friends like they let me stay at their house. They let me drive their Ferrari on the weekend. They bite me out on their boat, like, you know, they're all my friends. And, of course, they're paying me very well, too, but, but the people that I have, I paid them almost double what they would get paid working somewhere else. And the reason I do that is because I don't have to manage them, you know, I'm getting a different, a better quality of employee, because they're going to be there on time, they're not going to let you down, they have a lot of common sense. And they take pride in their work. And, you know, for them to come in and make 90 $100,000 a year, doing the same fun stuff that I'm doing, you know, make it, it creates a loyal workforce. And, and it shows and I couldn't be happier right now, George, honestly,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1255.0,"body":"man, that's so good to hear. And like you mentioned, you know, I came in our relationship started back when I lived in Dallas, and in doing real estate, and, you know, we really hit it off, because, you know, just just like you, I ran my real estate business, and tried to be as humble and as caring for my clients, as you were, you know, with credit repair. And that's kind of what drew us together and started that relationship there. And as we continue to grow, and you've hit on a bunch of great points in, can you just talk about, just with your success, and what you've done, just just some of the thought that has been put into going and planning out what you're doing and kind of how to grow this, your businesses over over the time, or even just what to take that next step? Because obviously, this new business, you know, it kind of just continue to grow by No, at some point, you had to stop and kind of plan this out on kind of what you wanted this to become who was it going to impact? Can you kind of just talk on that just over your years of experience, how much has planning played into your success on being able to kind of sit back, take a take a step back and kind of plan before you jump into something because I know even with this, even though it started to kind of grow pretty quick, you did have to kind of stop and tell yourself, hey, where do I want to really go with this? What's it really going to do? Can you just touch on that a little bit?\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1347.0,"body":"Yeah, yeah. And that's a great point. And if you don't plan to succeed, you plan to fail. And, for me, it was a little different George, like, I have my core beliefs. And I, that was number one. And that was, be honest, be the best at what you do. And have some integrity, you know, and take pride in your work. And so the planning for me, in a way was kind of trying to keep up with business, because it was coming so fast. And and I know that that's kind of counterproductive to what you're saying, but I'll get to my point. It was, you know, doing the right thing. It was kind of refreshing for people, I think, to find honesty, and the Find the hard work and, and integrity and everything else. But that's how I get my business. And it's through relationships. And and of course, meeting more people that I know what to do, they ask more questions I talked about, but the initial plan for me was, of course that I always write out, okay, what's my short term goals? What's my long term goals? And, and when I say write them out, I'm not just like a one or two long sentences. I talked about what my life is gonna be like in a year down to the vehicle that I'm driving, where I live, what my portfolio looks like, what my marriage looks like, all of these things. So that that, to answer your question. That's what I that's how I plan it. I just, I envision myself. And then from there, it's from day to day figuring out and what I'm what I'm doing, is that going to get me further towards where I need to be or hindering me. And so when you set your plans like that, then you can go back and easily answer that question. You know, find this and this machine or, or this service, is it really going to get me closer to where I need to be or is this condescending? And I think that that when you set things up like that, it's very easy to make decisions.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1497.0,"body":"Yeah, most definitely. And I think you've You know, you've hit on a couple great points, that, you know, I continuously try to emphasize on the show in understanding, especially on a plan on one thing that I think a lot of people forget. And you've, you've touched on it multiple times, on all the people that are going to actually be impacted by your plan in the way that you're going to move this forward. And I know for you, it was your family in that kind of help plan a lot of the decisions or play a huge role in some of the decisions that you were going to make and the plans that you were going to make what your businesses, you know, deciding to sell. And at what point, you know, the key stakeholders for you, a lot of it did revolve around your family. And I think that's one thing that a lot of people forget, as they jump into stuff, right, as they look at something, you know, a small Life Project, they they forget to look about all the people that is just going to impact outside themselves, because a lot of people tend to look at when they take on a life project, they tend to look at it from one side to think that, hey, this is just going to impact me, I think you touched on some great points on you know, really honing in on your family, because ultimately, for you, it was more beneficial to take that time with your kids, you know, especially at the ages that they're at, you know, then to slave yourself. 6070 hours in missed out on so many memories.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1585.0,"body":"Oh, yeah, yeah, I mean, to me, that was worth way more than anybody could ever pay me, you know, because I could never buy that back. You know, if I became a billionaire one day, I couldn't buy that time back. And I'm definitely blessed to understand that,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1602.0,"body":"you know, no, that's great. Oscar, and, you know, it's something you know, not everyone, even, you know, folks our age, right, because we're fairly young, we're in our early 30s. And figuring this stuff out. And with talking to our parents, it's something that they they figured out later in life, right? That, yes, you had to have a plan. But you know, you forget about all the people that are involved in that plan, because their ultimate goal, I know, when I talked to my parents, their ultimate goal was to make sure that me and my sisters had a better life than they had growing up. But that meant, you know, taking 60 hours a week, 70 hours a week at work to try to, you know, hit that plan. But they lost so much time to us without thinking about the folks that are impacted by the plan. And I think you know, even talking about it, you know, you get down to the inches on where you want to be. And I think, you know, you hit it very well on even on scheduling it, hey, where do I want to be in six months from today? You know, looking at it, and always be able to modify that, but even looking at scheduling things, you know, planning it out and building a schedule for yourself, you know, seems to have paid dividends because you know, where you want to be in quarter three of whatever year you're going into. And if you're not, then you're you're adjusting your plan. Am I safe to say that that's a correct statement coming from\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1689.0,"body":"me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, exactly. Man. Exactly. And, and once again, whenever you have that plan, and you have that vision set out for you, it's very easy to answer those questions. Is this working? Is this working to get me to where I need to end up by this time? Or is this tendering? So it's very simple. And you know, it just, it makes things easier for you. And of course, that rolls over to better family life, because you don't have to sit and think all night while you're at dinner, or at your kids soccer game. Like, am I gonna lose everything? Because I made this decision? You know what I mean? You don't have to think about all these what ifs is very simple. At this point, does this look like it's gonna lead you to where you want to go? Or not? You know?\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1737.0,"body":"Yeah, most definitely. And it's, and it's something that you know, folks are age in. And even if you are 40, or 50, to sit back and just stop a little bit, take a knee and think about it and think about the life project you're trying to do. And I always call them a what and why statement, you know, what am I trying to do? And why am I trying to do it? As I look at who it impacts and things of that sort, and I think you hit on it perfectly on? You know, as we start to go into this and refine our plan, we start to answer those questions on what are we doing? Is it becoming a success or isn't becoming a success? Oscar before I let you go, Mandy, what advice do you have out there for for folks, you know, trying to if they were trying to improve themselves, you know, just a little bit in life, whether it's tackling weight loss, whether it's tackling you know, becoming more financially free, or whatever projects they come up in life, what type of advice from someone as successful as you would give someone that they can possibly, you know, just make one or two small tweaks within their life to possibly help them kind of hit that next level and help them grow personally, financially, whatever their ultimate goal is.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1814.0,"body":"Yeah, great question, man. And, and the long answer is get into Dave Ramsey, like he talks about becoming debt free. And in the process to doing that what he has done for himself and thousands of others. I use that, you know, once you find out about it, you understand that what he says is you spend every dollar on something, and that's towards debt? Well, the same thing with your plan, you know, right out your entire 24 hour a day, how many hours you're going to sleep? How many hours you're going to be, you know, how much time does it take a shower, I have to go to the grocery store on this day, I need time to watch this show on this day, you know, I'm going to be at work at this time from this time. And so when you do that, George, you can then hold yourself accountable to that schedule. And when you become accountable to yourself, then you become accountable to other people, and vice versa. They will call you like my wife calls me out all the time. Like, hey, it's past six o'clock, like, you know what a bit like, she knows how I am. But But sticking to that, because what you're doing is you're dedicating time for your family, you know, for your personal health, to worry about business and think about your future when you plan those times out. You. I mean, you can't say, Why don't have enough time to do this. But that's no longer an excuse. You know, you can't, you can't say, Well, I didn't have enough time, I didn't do that. When you're planning out your day like that, and you're weak, you do have time for these things that need to get taken care of. And even more than that, you're not worrying about you know, putting you taking your vehicle to get an oil change, when you should be worrying about your kids college and their future or, you know, paying bills or something. Am I making sense? I hope I'm making sense.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":1944.0,"body":"No, you're definitely making perfect sense. And, you know, it was something that that I've, I've talked about a couple different times on the show on, you know, as you look at the requirements for what you're trying to do within your project, right, as you define what that project is, it then turns into, Hey, man, I'm trying to go back in I'm trying to get my call my master's degree, and you know, what classes you have to take. And when they're scheduled? Yeah, you know, what's required for that class? Hey, you know, it's recommended that I spend six hours on this class a week, okay, where am I going to put that in my week? You know, it's definitely a, you know, as you line it out, in as you build that schedule, you know, on a day to day basis, weekly, you know, weekly or monthly, you know, it's you're, you're spot on with it, you know, of lining it out and seeing what has to go where, and then again, even if you take it in on a week by week, and you have to modify it just because you know, either you schedule it at the wrong time, right? You're these plans can always be modified, you know, through trial and error, and you figure out what works, but yeah, man, it's, it's definitely one of those things to where, you know, for schedule wise, you shouldn't have any excuse because you know, what was required for it, you set you set it, and then again, bringing your accountability partner, you know, and my wife does the same thing, hey, it's nine o'clock, you're supposed to go run, you know, you need to be on the draft for the next 45 minutes. Like, what are you doing? And yeah, so So definitely, man, it definitely helps to plan that out and then take a look at it, you know, whether it's one or two weeks later to see if it's actually working right, answering that question, like you mentioned, is, is this moving me forward to the plan? Or do I need to make a tweak to it? Then, you know, modify your plan? And, and will we go over monitoring and controlling? You know, we'll talk about it in later episodes. But yes, there's just because it's, you know, a schedule doesn't mean that it's set in stone.\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":2066.0,"body":"What's data, you know,\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":2069.0,"body":"as you become\n"},{"speaker":"Unknown Speaker ","startTime":2072.0,"body":"further along in business, you're, you know, you look at data, like, data is worth so much money because you can go back and look at the results from an action.
