I hear a slight echo in our convo station, but um, but no i just want you know it’s been it’s been a great week.
You know, and we’ve had a lot of opportunity for some amazing stuff.
We just had our second season start off and we had a great kickoff in the middle of the week.
It was really cool.
We did, we had um, we started off with a it.
Was a two-episode day and we started off doing an hour with all our friends that he just mentioned out there.
You know he just you guys just saw those opening credits that we had with them.
The think ad group, you know, exogloss.
Of course you got the dealership toolkit and then my good friends over at elite, fi partners and, of course, nexel.
You know it.
It’s been a great great great great great week and that just kicked it off in the middle of the week.
For us it was hump day wednesday, and it was a great way to get in the middle of the week.
Have some people come together and we just sat down and shared stories talked about some stuff and what a great time i appreciate all y’all.
For being there, i know liz, was there erica terry showed up for a little while you know it was, it was really really cool and you know – and i couldn’t ask for a uh – i don’t know jason – was there right, wasn’t jason there.
Yeah jason showed up this wasn’t his ride.
I mean it was.
It was really cool a heartfelt um stories of kind of how we got connected through this venture that we’re on uh to try to make sure that we find the best solutionaries the best beans, to brew with, on a level that maybe some people don’t understand.
Maybe some people don’t get or see, but there’s only so many people that actually get to fly, there’s only so many animals inside of the animal kingdom that get to conquer the air beneath them.
And we are part of an incredible network of people that are trying to find their way.
You know into the turbulence and into the the storm and above it and it’s it’s something that i get so philosophical on.
I get so many philosophical feelings um when i think of this, but there’s a lot of thought.
That goes into the things that we pour out and what we’re saying and to the things that people pour out and are doing inside of their business and because it it takes such pointed honor to achieve success with a customer sitting in front of you.
We want to make sure that, on our venture of just bringing a message that we are very pointed at who it is that we connect our message to and who it is, that we receive a message from and all of the people that we’ve had the chance To display in front of you again, you can take a look at this picture.
All of these faces are people that i cannot i mean i can spend an entire day telling you of the lessons that i’ve learned and continue to learn after the conversations that i’ve had with them incredible marvelous people and there’s so many more that we’re adding to Absolutely every single week, every single day, there’s new people joining this huge, huge group of people that are just trying to look at all those faces.
I i love all those faces.
All of them have deposited so much.
Yes, incredible knowledge value tools, resources to people that are out there trying to find a way to to make things happen inside of their business, and we honor that we appreciate that.
Thank you so much and getting really deep about it.
You know i mean really.
We are uh putting our heart into making sure that you all know that, no matter what is going on inside of your life, you need to apply three f’s.
If you want to make sure that you keep growing and that is to make sure that you wipe off the weight of unforgiveness, it’s just holding you down, it really is it’s just slowing your roll? I promise you, you know what i mean.
It’s slowing you down kid, you’re hurting yourself, okay, wipe it off and then your hands are free and then you can put on the blinders make sure that nobody gets into the portals to the soul right your eyes.
And then you can point at what it is that you want to point at focus on it and fly then once you’re flying man, you got to continue to pump it up.
Let’s get this show up and all you solutionaries out there.
Let’s go ahead and apply three f’s and forgive focus and fly together.
One two three forgive focus: [ Applause ].
We got some fun stuff, that’s getting ready to happen.
I mean there’s a lot.
There’s a lot of fun stuff, getting ready to happen.
Folks, you know.
So we got an announcement, we’re going to be making tonight we’ll be making that here in a few moments.
Um it’s it’s it’s a statement.
It’s just like putting something out there in universe.
You know there’s something about um when you take massive action and – and one thing that’s getting ready to happen – is a lot of massive action.
We’ve already done that when we declared this show over a year ago – and we just made it happen – we just did it.
We put the work in, we put, we put it out in the universe.
We said we’re going to do it.
We started building it just like this table we’re sitting at right.
Now we we, we did everything we got this now.
We’ve built a network we’ve built friends, we’ve built, you know, confidence which i’ve been talking about a lot.
You know and that’s something else that happened this week.
We got to interview michael cirillo, we interviewed beginning in the middle sean, sean, welsh and then on sunday night.
We interviewed freaking um john resurrection, so it’s been a big week this whole week in the cafe been huge and fun right great time, and i appreciate everybody – who’s been there to watch these shows or have watched them after we put them out.
You know we appreciate it.
It’s it’s been a lot of fun this week and um, but then i got to do the for the think tank for my my great friends over at the think ad group.
They we go, you know the think tank is something we’ve been we’re founder founding members of and when it started it was, it was a just, a bunch of us getting together just to encourage each other through this whole coronavirus that we were going through.
There was a big like hey, let’s spend time, encouraging each other, letting each other know that hey and people from all over the country right, so you can really see what’s going on over there, how their sales were doing there, what they were doing to help make It better what kind of companies we can put together to it was just beautiful and it really made people encourage that, knowing that things were going to get better, and you can hear that from people who were having good things.
So you could feel like it was going to come your way when that wave happened right.
So it was a great time.
So the think ad group asked me to be the host that night.
That’s actually asked lou and i, but it was his son’s birthday that night, so he was spending time with son.
Lou was there for a while.
He was just kind of in the background, but he came out.
He closed it out with us.
My son turned 18.
He did folks great incredible news that night and i got to jump in and watch fred doing an incredible job, uh making sure to bring light and pour positivity all up in everybody’s cup.
Everybody was thirsty for more of it and it was awesome to see fred in there doing his thing.
Just making people feel uh more alive, which is you know, ultimately what we want to do, bro right.
That’s that’s what that’s what this whole thing’s about right so and that’s what being a human being is about.
So that’s what i kind of just love.
Doing that’s what i do best and i think that a lot of people do when they start to get really confident in themselves and knowing that you know you can really help somebody by just putting a hand out and saying hey.
Thank you, and i appreciate you right and letting them know how powerful they are they, how much of a voice they have and how much confidence they deserve to have inside them, and that’s all i was trying to do that show.
It was just about confidence um.
So i want to talk about that and also really quick.
I also want to throw out that this is the last week of the month um getting ready to come up.
You know this whole month this whole year, it’s a brand new year, so the beginning of this year and at the beginning of most months.
We all do this thing and lou just did it.
We got it still up here.
The forgive focus fly so i’m gon na throw a quick shout out to the triple f’s right so beginning of the year we all forgave last year and that’s the whole point.
I’m gon na move forward.
I’m ready for new fresh beginnings.
You do that with every month in the car business, especially, you know what i had.
Maybe i had a great month or maybe i had a bad month last month.
That’s probably the best example.
I had a bad month last month.
You know and i’m going to go ahead and forgive myself for that, because i’m ready to i’m going to do the work this month, man i’m going to do it, so you did that right.
Let’s just suppose you did that, and i know you did people out there.
I believe in you right – and i know that you’re doing this right now, so you forgave yourself, then you went into the focus i’m gon na focus on trying to sell, let’s say 10 more than i did last month right whatever that number is in your head.
You know what it is.
You just believe that you’re going to do more than that.
That’s all you have to do right, so you do that now.
You’re focusing you’re moving now you’re getting into the last week where that last week is crucial because you’ve done all the work you’ve been focusing the whole time you forgave yourself, you’re, focusing and you’re ready to fly.
Now you got to fly through that finish line, so you’re ready.
You just got to make sure that you get that working.
You do every bit of focus that you’ve been putting in don’t just lay down this last week you go into this last week with optimism.

This is a career.
This is a lifestyle that you can really do.
Well, if you put the work in, you can really help and touch more people.

Even greater is that we now are able to pour back out if you’re fine, trying to find somebody to pour inside of you, like we’ve sought mentorship.

That is magical.
No, i’m really excited about it too, because honestly, there’s there’s a big voice out there.
That needs to be heard and it’s it’s getting bigger every day and and every minute that we hear this voice.
The more encouraged – i am to know that young ladies out, there are going to be getting into this business and having a great experience in this.
Not such a rough experience like much of their the ones, the the godmothers of the business right, the ones that came in over the last 20 years, who came in and paved the path for him and showed that hey car women most of the time are even Stronger than us car guys, because they just have this different edge to them and they understand people and that’s what this business has become, it used to be a little different, so you know i know it was hard, but now it’s a people.
It always was a people business, but it’s even more in the forefront.
They want real people and that’s what people want when they buy vehicles.
They don’t want these fake sales.
People that come in there hey, you know, hey.
Are you doing pinky ringing like we hear you know all that type of stuff, though i would rock a pinky ring because they are kind of cool, not gon na lie.
I might even get me one but seriously and – and i’m so excited about being able to put this voice on there and i’m not saying they’re going to interview nothing but women.
That’s not the case.
What i mean is they.
Are they see it from that side of the fence, and i wanted them to be able to have that voice, and i absolutely cannot wait for them to interview other people with huge voices, men, women of and everybody that want to be on here? Does you know just car people and when we get them in here, it’s going to be a lot of fun, so we’re going to be able to go? Hopefully now we can have shows like you know, i don’t know how you know we got to sit.
We’re still figuring out the actual, you should be able to go in cadence to where you can go to brother and sister on a flip-flop daily.
You know what i mean and, and that’s ultimately, what we want to do is we want to make sure that we bring a balance right.
We make sure we get the right mixture inside of your cup.
Your brew is your way.
You can again, you can’t possibly take in all of the content that we have out there inside of a sitting, so for what we’re gon na make sure is available for you.
The car gals are going to bring a whole other vantage point into the market, as i’m sure should be very obvious for you guys and gals to be able to grip on that.
The vantage point of us is one thing, but two, ladies, that are sisters that are actual car dealers, that are generational, car dealers that are finding a way to take care of the people in their town that have been through the the pandemic.
They are too bad.
It has grown into making big things happen.
There’s some value there that it’s going to be style and love right from fashion fitness to understanding, hospitality, yeah everybody man, everybody that comes in and is willing to spend money with you.
They are human beings.
You treat them like one and you treat them like.
You would treat your sister if they walked in or your brother right.
Yes, that’s what it is and that’s what it’s about, and they have that type of heart, car, guy, coffee, cargo, coffee, car people, coffee and we are one and we’re gon na – have a lot of fun and – and i’m super excited about doing this with them.
If there’s any two wow, i love them and we’ve been we’ve known them for years and it’s it’s just always been a just, a good friendship and i’m looking like, i said, i’m really looking forward to a new show you all every one of you out there.
Men, women, you should be excited about the show and i’m excited to intro them and get them out there and start putting out their promo stuff, and you guys and we just got a little sneak peek.
You know, but you’re gon na start, seeing more them.
If you guys haven’t already been uh, checking them out, go to rainbow motors check them out, check them out, sisters of savings, melissa, hannah and michelle streets if you’re from local, you know their voice and and because they do incredibly effective marketing in their in their region.
So that is one thing that they’re definitely going to be able to teach so many people that are trying to understand how the entire hub comes together of a dealer, and some of other people have great podcasts too, that are out there.
But they’re going to be able to give a great a great view on things that i’ve learned so much of just listening, hearing them out hearing and seeing what they’re doing watching their social media being able to help pour in and receive.
And it’s because that’s how good relationships are, but that’s one thing that i want to make sure that all of you understand we are building some great relationships with people.
So much i mean they’re going to be in town in the next week yep and we’re going to get to meet their husbands they’re going to get to meet our wives.
It’s going to be a great shindig as we get ready to announce that, for those of you that are professionally and diligently seeking for solutions to be brewing in a cargo way, you’re going to be able to find it kind of just like this.
I love it.
Oh man so good job lou.
I love that so excited how hot i mean super excited.
Obviously you know it’s it’s a whole opportunity.
Now we do three days a week here and plus content daily.
You know between the quick brews and everything else um, so we’re we’re doing as much as we can to bring light to this business to share knowledge to help people grow, but wait, there’s more and we’re looking forward to having them and they’re going to be able To fill the voids that we weren’t able to fill not just the days but also the people right, their reach is going to get so deep.
And i think honestly and i know – and i and that’s crazy – and i keep saying this to my wife – the show’s going to get bigger than ours and we’re going to have to deal with the two divas.
And i’m okay with that.
And i – and i hope so and and i really dream big for them – and i and i know that in my heart – that they have the best intentions for this show no there’s.
No, they they’re doing well money’s great with them.
They, don’t you know, could they make more? We all could but they’re it’s they’re willing to put work in and they want to give and give and give – and this is what lou and i have been doing over the last years, giving and giving as much as we can.
So i’m looking forward to being able to add you know you multiply.
Lou talked about it before one.
What’s the saying lou one can what one can chase a thousand two and chase ten thousand? Yes, now.
Imagine that with four do that math it amplifies it’s not.

That’s it’s going to be fun because it’s just going to amplify all of the reach um we’re! I mean again it’s it’s going to be overflowing like crazy, and you guys need to make sure that you get you some and have some some sort of a understanding that there’s a lot of people that want it and you need to share it.
You should let them know sure you have plenty so much to share.

We we really really really are grateful for everybody that shares with us.
Like this i mean it does it gets humbling.
You know when i speak about it uh with tiffany, when when i speak about it with gabe and sophie and explain you know what we’re doing and the stories of the people that are are affected by what’s happening and how we’re coming together and we’re finding these Solutionaries that we want to be better because we have a conversation with them, we hear them is like wow.
We got to step up our our awesomeness.
We got to try to.
We got to crank this up a bit more.
We there’s more inside of us that we have to share, and you all are the ones that are are still taking this message out there and you’re, putting it you’re, putting it to work every day inside of your families, inside of your jobs, inside of your hobbies, Inside of the things you’re passionate about inside of your churches right inside of weird crazy times and we’re towards the end of the first month of the first of the of that year, that we have come away from 2020, which for us was phenomenal.
It was a great incredible year where lost the care of chasing revenue completely, as we gained the most valuable relationships ever and, and it’s so exciting now to be able to talk to people right that are doing great things and we see the growth in you.
We see the excitement in you, we see the testimonies of you.
Yes, it’s never something that we take lightly.
We i mean we talk about it.
It’s imagine us talking more about it.
When we don’t have the limitations of thinking, we’ve got to finish a show right.
We talk a lot still and it’s it’s really exciting to to know that we have you all that are making things happen on the outside we’ve we’ve again, you’ve heard that inspiring drop like silly all the people that we had on here right and and we and We talk about it because they’re great incredible people that we would not have had the chance to get to meet unless we at least gave a little bit of emphasis to the message that we want to share.
That’s how we meet.
We met them.
We opened our mouth and we spoke to them.
Fred has been incredible at making sure to build these relationships with people that want to make sure that they find their way inside of the cafe to sip some of the solutions, and let us be able to pour into them some positivity while we pull from them.
Some of the best valuable parts of who it is that they are and the things that they think about, and that is mind-blowing that we get to have best friend conversations with these people that are not always the easiest to get to and work.
Big businesses sit down and have some hot wings with my man, glenn lundy seriously sat down with him.
Just talked, we just talked about life and we gave him our plan that we had and what he thought and he gave us tips and he did it with such love.
You know the way he should be right make an impact.
He was making a huge impact for us, and i love that and he’s big about that.
You know i got.
I got wendy reeves out here, throwing some.
She says: hey happy sunday, somebody that pours out 2020 the year where little things became big things.
Oh my! I love that good words, love good words yeah and it’s true though you know, but it was a lot of little things and then you could.
But if you put a lot of there was so much time for either extra work or extra time for your family.
You could have done all that stuff mix it all together and have fun and you could have been creative.
You know a lot of people lost or not lost were put off work for a little bit.
They were on furlough right.
That was the word and furlough when they were on furlough.
They had opportunity, they could have just done nothing right or they could have tried to do something that they always had dreams to do like a podcast which we it ours had nothing to do with coven.
You know it actually.
This was planned well before that before we even heard of it, um just was, i don’t know it’s one of those things, man where things all lined up for us, where we were able to get our guests and when we started because we started our show, and We wasn’t, it wasn’t to start off with guests, we were going to bring guests on, we did have some, but the whole point was to lay out our whole intentions, put everything out there and let people know what our plan was and if you go back and Watch the 10 first brews they are the first 10 weeks.
I should say if you watch that and hear, i should say, hear that you could hear it and they’re out there to watch too, but you can listen to it and it’s just it.
We laid our heart out and then we went into now it’s time to bring everyone else’s voice in to amplify ours, and we did.
We started getting amazing guests, you know, like people at the beginning was like justin jerick, and we had you know.
Of course, one of my good good friends, adam marberger, i think all y’all know you guys know who he is he’s the jiu jitsu ascent dealer services, the my man.
He is everything and he’s been through so much in his life.
Yet he is still on top of the mountain reaching for and trying to get there, and i absolutely love that guy shout out to adam marberger.
But you know we we did that el patron came on of course, jason garris that just started to blow up from there.
Everything came together, sean hayes.
You know we just started getting it glenn londy i mean i don’t mean to keep name dropping my name.
I can keep danger mike’s real back at me, i’m just saying, but we’re having a lot of fun there.
It is right and we’re having a lot of fun doing it and it’s it’s been great.
We’ve built relationships with these people, friendships where we could just go and have wings with them right.
They also see our consistent behavior that we have.
They see that we have passion, do they see we’re goofy and we have fun too, and i think that’s the thing we bring.
That is the flavor that we throw in every brew is fun, have some fun yeah exactly so.
Thank you for so muchy, but yeah jamie.
You write so much.
He is a such a good dude.
You know, so we going up there surprising him and the way he welcomed us.
Like literally let us he said, hey go in my office.

You know that wasn’t going down already [ Laughter, ], you go sit sitting your turn.
You know when you see something.

He was really that cool, i’m sure he found he got a kick out of us.
You know getting all in there like fanboy, fanboying and they’re, like oh, my god right so all right.
So but yeah it was cool.
It was really cool and you know it it’s.
I can’t wait to go up and see him again and maybe go next time.
Maybe i can take him out for a round of golf, because i know he likes playing golf because he don’t want to play.
No one on one basketball i’ll tell you that i’m just playing! Oh i’m just saying, and i’m not i’m saying it, i should just drop calling them out.

We could try to raise some money for a beautiful cause, local kentucky cause, maybe or even national.
It doesn’t matter car right, so loving it.

Do you see the metaphors there’s so many metaphors and what we do you guys don’t even catch all of the correlations that we try to pull together, but it does it.
