1 (1m 33s):
That most people
2 (1m 35s):
I agree with, what is up fire nation? And JLD. I think one of the biggest things that people disagree with in terms of being successful is not recognizing that life and relationships and business, whatever it is you wanna throw at, it is a series of problems, AKA opportunities for solutions. And the sooner we realize that we're going to have a flat tire, someone's going to die. Not that you can't have feelings around it, but he recognized how can I work through this? Whatever's in front of me and just look at it as an obstacle that you can overcome. And there's a solution. The other side life will become so much easier
1 (2m 10s):
Fire Nation. I know you can already tell that this conversation with that is today is going to be a thinker. It's going to make you sit down, maybe hit the rewind button a few times, listen again to what he's sharing, because these are some really interesting, really deep concepts. And we're going to be talking about a lot of awesome stuff today, specifically, which I mentioned in the introduction, we're gonna be talking all about our death and taxes now uncertain. And you know, for me for five years now, I can say, I can tell you taxes have become very minimal, but I'm fascinated by this topic about death and taxes potentially now being uncertain. You know, now that I've achieved a certain level of success, I am like all in on, how can I extend this life in a very healthy way?
1 (2m 53s):
Like, what does that look like? And there's such so many cool things coming up in these areas. Plus Fire Nation, everybody who talks to me like when you send me emails and you reply to my Instagram stories, you tell me how beautiful it is down here in Puerto Rico. And you're correct.
1 (27m 23s):
It is paradise. It's gorgeous. And Thaddeus and myself are going to have an opportunity for you to come down to Puerto Rico. Only a few people, unfortunately, but a few people are going to have an opportunity to come down and join us for an amazing, and somebody even say unforgettable opportunity coming up here very, very shortly. So without any further ado, let's just dive in values because I want to talk about the first step that we need to work on towards eliminating death in taxes. What does that look like?
2 (3m 37s):
It's scratching your own itch. And one thing on the taxes is Rumi talking today about how people can reduce or eliminate taxes without having to move Puerto Rico or overseas, or they can really stay wherever they want. But really, I think the biggest thing is scratching your own itch, right? So when I was 10, the doctor said my mom would be in a wheelchair. The rest of her life. These are all the experts, right? She went to expert after expert. She was on full disability. Couldn't work. So when I was young, I didn't have a mom. So my first career was going into natural health care to save my mom's life fast forward. Now I own four clinics. Last year we saw around 50,000 patient interactions. Wow. Finishing up my PhD this year on neuroscience and my mom's in her seventies. She just started running five-year races.
2 (4m 18s):
And now she has to find younger and younger friends to hang out with her and she's going to complete remission. Wow. I think that's the first thing is we have to realize that all the experts are aren't necessarily right. And, and the, and the majority isn't always right. It's like, just look at most people. Most of the time are wrong about most things.
1 (4m 35s):
What would you say with all of this? You know, we're scratching our own itch. We really need to figure out, okay, who are the people that we can be listening to? They're aligning with our thoughts that are actually showing us results, but you know, of course it also comes down to a certain sense of mindset and, you know, actually having that correct mindset, which you touched a little bit upon and the very first topic that we chatted about, you know, which is, you know, what do you believe about becoming successful that a lot of people disagree with? So what would in your experience this ideal mindset look like?
2 (5m 4s):
I think it comes down to recognizing again that that life is just a series of problems and I'm going to replace that word with opportunities for solutions. So I always tell my team that whenever you come to me, don't come to me with a problem. You come to me with an opportunity for a solution, which AKA means they have to come to me with the solution. I don't want them just to come to me with a problem saying, Hey, here it is. It's like, it's like Elon Musk says, right. As CEO, you get the worst problems because if it was easier, when else would have solved it. But I think the thing is, is that it's, you have to know, and you have to recognize that the authority isn't always correct. And I still remember when I started making money in the clinics finally, after, you know, busting my butt for years on end. And I looked down and my CPA says, or I said to my CPA, I said, so I, Oh wait, I owe a quarter million dollars in taxes, but I only have $30,000 in the bank account.
2 (5m 54s):
How, how does this work out when I'm working so hard? And I think I'm being smart and it's just like, this doesn't make sense. And he kind of chuckled and said, Oh, if I had a nickel for every time I heard that. And I said, and it was right then where I went to scratch my second itch and saying, well, I know that Amazon and a lot of other wealthy people don't pay taxes and they do it without having to move to Puerto Rico or, you know, go to, you know, set up foreign bank accounts, all these things. So how do they do it? So I started researching, and that was my that's my second career. And probably for the last five or six years now, I've been helping business owners, entrepreneurs, compliantly, reduce and eliminate taxes living right, where they are without, you know, over-funding IRAs or 401ks or whole life health insurance.
2 (6m 37s):
But, but, but using simple, basic strategies that, that are available. But it's the mindset of understanding that, that, Hey, success leaves clues. And if other people are doing this, there's gotta be a way for me to do this. Or, or, or, or the mindset of saying, rather than saying, Oh, I can't do that because of X, Y, Z given my situation, but rather it's Oh, how could I do that? Given my situation. So it's looking at it as a solution-based, as opposed to a problem-based
1 (7m 9s):
So many things that I'm taking away here, fire nation, I'm taking notes religiously. So believe me, that the show is page is going to be amazing here, but number one, look at problems. They are actually opportunities for solutions. Just have that mindset shift authority is not always correct. You need to understand that being true. And yes, success does leave clues. And that is like, when you're talking, it truly brings me back to 2015. When I had that exact same conversation with my CPA. I said, Josh love you brother. But you're telling me I've got to write a $250,000 a quarter for me, $250,000 a quarter check to the government. And I only have a couple hundred K in the bank. So it's like, like I'm, I'm paying more taxes, the money that I have, how is this even possible?
1 (7m 51s):
Crazy. It's insane. And so I said to him, just similar to you, I'm like, Hey, I want to find like a legal, like, real way to diminish my taxes a little bit and make this. So, you know, I feel like I'm actually working for something like building wealth and being able to put some money away towards my future. And you know, of course for me, you know, and just having a at the time girlfriend now, my fiancee, Kate, we were living together with no kids and no responsibility saying, well, we actually can just pick up and go on a little adventure to Puerto Rico to see if that, that works out and pay 4% tax and life is good there. And that ended up working out for us. It might not have, but it did. But like that is the saying, that's not an option for everybody because you may have a brick and mortar business. You may have really steep family ties and you want to stay around you.
1 (8m 32s):
Maybe you love where you live. That's awesome. You don't want to leave. You don't have to. And that's the point of this conversation and you have to stick around to get more and more of this great content fire nation, because you Thaddeus have a phrase that I love magic piggy bank. What that hack is a magic piggy bank. So a magic
2 (8m 51s):
Piggy bank is, is something that I stumbled across years and I didn't realize I was doing it. And I probably did it for probably four or five years. And then it's one of those things I looked back and someone said, fatties, that's, that's brilliant. Like, how'd you come up with that? And I, and I said, well, I know just, just kind of makes sense. And I think it's one of those things, right? You know, where, where, where you can kind of know where your unique ability is when other people say, Holy crap, that's amazing. And you're sitting there thinking, Oh, well, no, it's it's yeah. It's, you know, it's like Steph Curry, right? He shoots, he shoots amazing from half court and he's kinda like, Oh, well, yeah, it's just what I do. And everyone's crazy about it. Right? So I stumbled across this, this concept and it's, it's kind of, it's kind of a boring, old, common concept that most people don't realize how to, how to maximize.
2 (9m 40s):
So in short, a magic piggy bank
1 (9m 44s):
Can be anything that you
2 (9m 45s):
Can, that you can put money into. And it does its work. And then magically is, it comes out the other side and you have access to all your money again. And I use the word magic piggy bank, because we all know that there's no such thing as magic. I mean, but, but here's the thing like Darren, was it Darren Brown? Right? The, the great illusionist in psych, he's a master psychologist. If you're, if you're one, a, a video to watch a Netflix show, watch the push. It's crazy. When you look at what is he able to do, but basically the premise of it, just as a little cliff hangers, they say, can you get a stranger to, to, to kill an innocent person in 60 minutes, if you stage things, right. And it's crazy, they video everything
1 (10m 27s):
Terrifying. Like some of the people that you see you're like that person would never, ever push. And they do it all the thing.
2 (10m 35s):
What about Darren Brown is his, when he's done with his show is his, he shows all of his tricks. And so you're like, Oh, and it's like the phrase, you know, you know, any, any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. And so I say magic piggy bank, but it's really just using the right strategy. So here, I'll give you one basic boring example. Let's pretend that you, that you're a farmer and let's, I'm gonna make a lot of assumptions here. And I'll tell you why these assumptions are important in a second. Let's say that you go buy a tractor and you're a farmer for a hundred thousand dollars. Well, you buy that tractor and now you get it right off that hole, that tractor. Now you just wrote that off and you just, you just deducted a hundred thousand dollars from your taxes, but now you're, you're out a hundred thousand dollars, so that, okay, that's great.
2 (11m 18s):
But you have a tractor. The tractor can go produce value on your farm and create revenue for you. Well, let's say that you let's say you found a, a bank or a lender that you could go and you could get a hundred percent loan on that tractor at 0% interest. Well, what'd you do that? Well, I'm hoping that the answer was yes, because now you have a hundred thousand dollars back in your bank account. That's interest free. That is tax-free money. Well, now let's say that you, now, this is where it really gets magic and magical is that let's say that now you take the a hundred thousand dollars and you say, gosh, I have really big farm. I'm going to go buy another tractor. So now you go buy another tractor for a hundred thousand dollars off another a hundred thousand dollars. And I have two tractors creating double the value. And let's say the bank would then loan again.
2 (12m 0s):
Well, let me ask, how many times would you do that? If you could buy an asset that you could write off a hundred percent, that would produce value for you and you could get that money back out of it. So at the end of the day, your net money in your bank account is the exact same, and you have full access to that. Tax-free forever. And that's the magic piggy bank. And that's, that's one of the things that, that I've stumbled across and created and refined thankfully to the cares act that came out last year. And some of the, their even more recent relief bills there's provisions in there that probably I've seen, maybe one in 20 CPAs know about that you can set up essentially think of it like this, essentially what you can do.
2 (12m 45s):
Now, if you're a business owner is you can set up a bank account that allows you to deduct. Here's the thing it allows you to, to duct your deposits on your taxes.
1 (12m 56s):
I mean, Fire Nation, these are the type of things. Again, that Thaddeus is bringing to the table. I mean, think about a one out of 20 CPAs potentially even know about this. I mean, this is why you can't trust just all authority when potentially less than 5% of them actually even know what you need to know with these new provisions that are coming live for us every single day. And, you know, I love that phrase again, the magic piggy bank, you know, anything that you can put money into that does its work and comes out the other side, all yours. I mean, who wouldn't want to do this all day long? And that is, I definitely want you to wrap up this part of it right here before you move on to my next kind of question that I have for you, because we're going to talk about this in length at the end of the episode, which isn't for some time now, but I want to give just foundation a little tease because we teased him at the very beginning of the episode about coming to Puerto Rico about what you have going on about how they're going to be, to learn some of these things like in person in a very intimate, amazing environment at an event that by the way, fire nation, I'm going to, because I need this content not to mention, I have the honor of being able to speak at it as well.
1 (13m 59s):
So you'll get to see me speak on stage as well, but real quick, we'll go into in depth. That is about it later, but what is this event and how can foundation find out more?
2 (14m 7s):
This is our annual retreat in Puerto Rico. It's limited to a hundred entrepreneurs that are really committed to making more money, having more free time, maximizing their health so that they can make an impact with their family, with their team and be more philanthropic. And I look at the entrepreneurial journey as, as different stages, right? When you first start out, you're hungry, you're, you're hustling, you're working hard, you start making money. And if you're smart and you're able to, to avoid paying taxes, great, then that just accelerates everything because then you just immediately get, you know, three to four months of your life back every single year. So, so what we're gonna be talking about, how you can reduce and eliminate your taxes, how you can create a self-managing self multiplying company.
2 (14m 50s):
So you have more freedom, how you can, we're gonna be talking all things crypto. We're going to talk about, I'm going to share how I add two to $3 million of real estate to my portfolio every single year, without using any of my money and how you can do that as well. What else? And we're going to talk about philanthropy and maybe even an option to hang out with myself and Richard Branson and a few other people as well. So we have a lot of fun, fun things going on because of, of some of the hotel restrictions, we are limited to a hundred people, but I'm looking forward to hanging out with you JLD and some of the guest speakers that we have, it's going to be awesome. It's gonna be great. And wherever you're at on your entrepreneurial path, you know, I think, like we said before, I I'd love to give a Fire Nation, a handful of guest passes that we've reserved just for, just for you and your, your audience.
2 (15m 34s):
So if they're interested, we'd love to love to talk with them and have them fill out an application.
1 (15m 38s):
Fire Nation, this event is thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars. But listen, that is my buddy. We're here in Puerto Rico. I'm coming to speak at the events. He is gifting me up to 10 passes, 10 guest passes for people that's, you know, go through this application process and do qualify for this amazing event. So I definitely recommend you jumping on the application, the guardians alliance.com/guest, the guardians alliance.com/guest. And of course, we'll have this link in the show notes page as well. And we have a lot more coming up when we get back from thanking our sponsors with the COVID-19 pandemic, still ongoing, and with businesses needing to adapt.

We were talking before the break about the amazing opportunity that foundation has to potentially be one of the 10 individuals who get to come down here as my guest, as JLD guests, fire nation, you're going to be part of my guest list to come down here for this amazing event, limited to a hundred people, the Guardian's alliance.com/guests, looking forward to seeing a bunch of you down here. We were talking about the magic piggy bank right before the break.
1 (17m 44s):
So let's kind of like wrap up that part of it. And just answer the question if this is why the heck isn't everybody doing this?
2 (17m 52s):
Yes. One thing I want to go back in full transparency. So the guest passes are they're, they're 250 versus several thousand. So I just want to be clear that there is a small fee and the reason is because if people don't pay something, they don't pay attention. And that makes sure is that when people, when we do give out the guest passes, people will show up, they have skin in the game and it just covers some of the food costs, but really it's just to make sure people that we do give the guest passes to do show up,
1 (18m 17s):
Oh, I'm actually going to throw something else on top of this foundation. If you do show up, just cause you came down to my Island of Puerto Rico. And I love when people come down and do this, I am going to hand you a signed copy of my book, the common path to uncommon success. I'm literally going to hand it to you. Part of my audience, fire nation on top of all of this. So besides the massive discount you're getting for your guest pass and just you awesome event itself, we're going to get to hang out for a minute. I'm going to sign the copy for you. It'll be a blast. So take it away. That is,
2 (18m 45s):
It goes back to kind of my first itch that I was scratching with my mom, right? It's I look at like this 73% of the population is overweight or obese life expectancy. And even before COVID and all that life expectancy had dropped for the last two or three years in a row. So the problem is, is that again, most people are wrong about most things, most of the time, and that includes authorities and experts. So why aren't we everyone doing this? Well, because the vast majority of people don't, you know, th they, they think average and, and, and it's like, it's like that study, right. You know, it's like when they pulled people, it's like 65% of the, of, of Americans think that they're above average. Well, statistically, that can't even be true,
1 (19m 26s):
Like 80% of Americans think they're an above average driver, which has even more.
2 (19m 30s):
Right. Right. And, and that's, that's the problem is that when you look at something that's abstract, such as thinking, we, we tend or driving that, that you don't really necessarily get tested on. It's we, we, all the Milgrim studies after out of the sixties and seventies, Stanley Milgram found a great study. He said he found that, that people overestimate their abilities and underestimate other people. People tend to overestimate and say, and think of themselves as more philanthropic, more athletic, smarter than, than so basically whatever trade it is, we tend to overthink or think that we are, are better than everybody else on. And it's just a default. So the D but however, we have to recognize that the default state of us and humans on any subject or topic is average or below average, unless we put in attentional efforts into it.
2 (20m 21s):
So I would say this only one in 20 CPAs even has heard about this kind of concept of magic piggy banks. And when we teach it and we get more heady about it, it's called cashflow arbitrage, which you're not going to find on the internet because it's a term that we coined when we, when we really magnified what magic piggy banks are and how it works. But it's the idea, again, that, you know, people, social proof is like Robert Cialdini says is one of the main drivers of human influence in behavior. People look around and everyone else is overweight or obese, then that's going to happen. It's the, you know, you're the sum of the five people you must surround yourself with. And if you surround yourself with, with four people that are fit healthy, you know, are successful well. And if you're hanging out with them, well, guess who the fifth is going to be.
2 (21m 1s):
Boom. And I think it's, it's that we're, we're in this, we're in this huge VAT in the U S that that is just surrounded with, and I don't mean this derogatory, but we're just surrounded with mediocrity. And, and, and we get stuck in the news and all these other things out there, and that becomes that environment then shapes, molds us both physically and mentally. So when we see things that come up, we just dismiss it. And I'll ask, I'll ask the, you know, the Fire Nation members, this think about this. Have you ever heard wealthy people or Amazon or Jeff Bezos don't pay any taxes? Well, most people have, but then when I do my live webinars, I say, okay, well now how many of you, how many hours have you spent really researching how the wealthy and how Jeff Bezos avoided paying any taxes?
2 (21m 51s):
And he, and he didn't have to move to Puerto Rico. And usually then I just get on the, on the chat. I just get a stream of just zero, zero, zero. I had one person, you know, I said, how many, how many hours do you spend in one person? Put I put negative one. I said, what do you mean? She said, I actually put time and energy into trying to actively avoid learning about taxes because it makes my brain hurt so much. So, and that's, that's it right? It's the mindset. Just like my mom was sick. If, if we had listened to the experts, right, my mom would probably wouldn't be here because she even said there was one time where it was so bad where she had lost her job, almost lost her job. She was on full disability. Couldn't use her arms, couldn't even do her hair anymore. She basically just sat in a rocking chair. And she said, you know, if there was a pill I could have taken to end it, I would have. Now when I was 10 and I'm hearing my mom say that, like that was my first drive.
2 (22m 34s):
My first passion was saved my mom's life. And now, thankfully, as a result, we've helped tens of thousands of patients add 10 to 20 quality years to their life. I'm finishing up my neuroscience PhD with Dr. George Einstein. Who's actually the nephew of Albert Einstein. And it's opened up so many things for so many people on the same, my scratching, my own itch with the taxes and doing this is no different
1 (22m 57s):
Fire Nation. How can you not get fired up hearing Thaddeus? I mean, that's why whenever this guy is down in Palmas Del Mar I'm trying to hang out with them because I want my average to be part of that. He is here because you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. And, you know, one thing that a lot of us do naturally want to do that is, is automate health, automate wealth in something that's, you know, you kind of bring to the component is that once you have done those two things, you know, now it's like, well, what else will, what else is, let's also automate impacts? So we can make a big impact in this world, break these three things down for us. How can we automate health, wealth, and impact?
2 (23m 32s):
It's looking at environment because we know that environment is the single biggest predictor of human behavior, hands down, period. So environment is everything. And I'm going to go on the heels of something that Tony Robbins said that I love. I'm not going to say it exactly, but it's along the lines of you write the biggest check that you can now, what does that mean? It means that when Tony Robbins, whenever he wants to learn a skill, it's, he writes the biggest check to fast track learning because skills learning and ability compounds more than money and so the relationships. So if I want to be, I'm gonna make this real, real, tangible, if I want to be, if I, if I'm a zero on the tennis player scale, and I want to become as best I can, well, how can I collapse time while I write the biggest check I can and hire the best person that's going to be the best mentor and fast track it.
2 (24m 27s):
So, and obviously everyone now, whatever scale for you, that's the only thing that's relevant. You know, if you have a million dollars, great, if you have $1 great, like it doesn't matter, just solve a problem. So what, what can you do? And whether it's YouTube or whatever it is, how can you surround yourself with the smartest, brightest, best people. So that way you're leveraging all the benefits that they've got, and you can distill it down. So surround yourself with health, surround yourself with the type of, of practitioners and experts out there that you want to be like. So look at people that are really healthy, really fit and just follow in and do what they do. And look at them as mentors with wealth, same kind of thing, who are the people that are the most wealthy, just look what they did.
2 (25m 10s):
I mean, Warren Buffett, right? One of his favorite books, the intelligent investor. Well, everyone knows that Warren buffet is really rich and really wealthy, but how many people have read cover to cover the intelligent investor? The number one book that he recommends? I mean, probably not too many. I mean, candidly, I haven't either because it's, it's, god-awful boring, horrible, but if you want to do it, just, just look at what successful people are doing and just repeat it. And in terms of impact, same kind of thing, you know, I'm a big fan of, of, of Sam Harris. And one thing he said, I thought was great. He said, he said, there's a lot of people out there by no, no, no influence of their own accord are in really unfortunate circumstances.
2 (25m 50s):
So he said, if I'm going to give a thousand dollars to the malaria foundation or whatever it is that, that you're passionate about, isn't that a good idea every month. So how do we take the emotional drive out of that? Because if it's good this month, it's probably good next month. So rather than having to muster the emotional fortitude to open up the wallet every month, for instance, an art for me, what we do is, is we send a thousand dollars every month to a charity that one of our team members picks. So whoever our team member of the month is we go through and we say, great, where do you want to send money this month? Because us as an organization, we're going to send money every single month. So we just automated our giving and philanthropy. So we give to either help fight sex, trafficking, sex, and human trafficking, nutrition, and, and hunger and malaria.
2 (26m 39s):
Those are the three big things that, that we donate to. Plus we, last year we donated 10,000 to a runaway home girls, girls runaway home as well. So we do bulk donations, but we also didn't automate every month just to try to try to make the world a better place,
1 (26m 54s):
Fantastic stuff, Fire Nation. We're talking about automating health, wealth, and impact, and what it really comes down to is who are you surrounding yourself with? Who are you surrounding yourself with Fire Nation? Obviously you're on this call right now. So here's surrounding yourself with two pretty cool people in my humble opinion. So keep up that heat, but I want to use this as a perfect segue to, Hey, why don't you come hang out with over a hundred, really cool people down in a really cool place called Puerto Rico, Fire Nation, at least 10, and maybe more people that are listening to this right now are going to be hanging out down here in Puerto Rico. So that is, let's talk in more detail.
1 (27m 35s):
Now, as we close this down, let's talk about dates. Let's talk about specific things going to be happening over the course of this event. Let's get fire nation to move.
2 (27m 46s):
I would echo what you're saying. JLD is that yeah, if you want, yeah. I mean, if you want to, fast-track your, your success in health, wealth and philanthropy and that kind of natural ascension curve of the entrepreneur and the business owner. It, it really is. To me, it's just surrounding yourself with the right people, the right playgrounds and the right playmates. And for me, the biggest, the biggest fork in the road, or turn in the path, if you will, for me, has been in putting myself in mastermind groups. I remember the first time I joined a mastermind group, it was with genius network and Joe Polish. And I sat in the room and I looked around, I thought, Holy crap. I'm, I'm not crazy. Everyone else here is just as crazy as I am, which means I'm normal. That's great.
2 (28m 26s):
And so, and so it, it really was an eye opener for me. So yeah, I mean, standing on the giants, shoulders of giants, we all see further. I mean, you know, pick, pick your, pick your cliche, but it's a cliche for a reason because it makes sense and there's, and there's, there's depth to it. So yeah, I'd say if you want to come down, we have the founder of step fitness. Peter Totten is going to be talking about how he grew from zero to, I think over 900 locations in about five years, of course, GLD, you're gonna be talking about how you make a gazillion dollars every month on autopilot, which I love. We're gonna be talking about all things crypto. So we actually have a crypto account that we've been trading. And I know right now it's a bull market. So everyone looks like a genius, but we're gonna have some crypto experts sharing live a portfolio that we've been trading specifically for the guardians to, to show where we're at, why we make trades in and out.
2 (29m 13s):
So we're gonna be going over over crypto. We're gonna have some guest panels. We're gonna have some expert doctors that are going to be there sharing that the latest and in not only STEM cells, but 3d printing of organs, all kinds of awesome, awesome advancements that are out there. So you can stay up to date and know when it, when it's ready for upgrades.
1 (29m 30s):
What I think we need to know is what are the dates, what are gonna be happening over these days? And then of course, we're going to share one more time. Fire Nation, the guardians alliance.com/guest is where you go to learn more and apply
2 (29m 44s):
April 14th through the 17th. So typically we're telling people arrive on April, April 14th, check-in or, you know, obviously if you want to come earlier and put your toes in the sand, go for it. But, but you can come on the fourth, April 14th, it's right on the beach at the Curry bait Hilton hotel. It's right, right in downtown San Juan, right on the beach, they have an awesome pull. Awesome, awesome location there. And then we have two full days, the 15th and the 16th of awesome, amazing speakers. We have, we have some power talks. So people get up there in 10 minutes and share their juiciest best, best business tip on how they can grow their health, wealth, or their impact.
2 (30m 24s):
And then we have a half day on the 17th. And for, for VIP members, we have a breakout session on Saturday. I didn't tell you this JLD but I'm going to try to rope you in to see if you want to, if you want to be there on Saturday with us at the breakout session, but a half day on Saturday. And, and then people can fly out in less. Like I thought one thing you said earlier when we were off air is, Hey, if you're coming down to the Caribbean, why not hang out a couple extra days with the Island cruise around and bring the family and make it fun.
1 (30m 51s):
Honestly, like Puerto Rico is open for business. I mean, obviously you're going to be taking the normal precautions, but I mean, it is a wonderful time of the year. April to be down in Puerto Rico is beautiful Island to explore. You can come down, you can be, you know, as safe as you want and need to be, but this, this Island is open for business. I mean, things are happening down here. We're having fun down here. We're being safe down here. We're being smart down here, but Fire Nation, make sure you are one of those people that says, you know what, now's the time. Now's the time for me to surround myself with the right people. Now's the time for me to learn from the right people. And now's the time for me to jump up. Whatever's been happening in my life the last year, year and a half. It's all been crazy for all of us. Let's come down, let's get some Puerto Rican son.
1 (31m 32s):
Let's get our toes in the sand. Let's go on this amazing Curry Bay Hilton pool. Let's just surround ourself with awesome people for health, for wealth, and for impact, I can tell you, my talk is going to blow your socks off. The other people that Thaddeus has lined up is going to be amazing. I have no doubt that Thaddeus is going to be able to rope me in for this VIP day. So I'll likely be there as well. I mean, Fire Nation, this is an awesome opportunity. theguardiansalliance.com/guest. So the guardians with an S the theguardiansalliance.com/guest, take this home for us. That is what else do you want to share with fire nation to make sure they can take advantage of, of course, this opportunity and just life in general?
2 (32m 16s):
I think really that, you know, the thing that I've seen that successful people, they look at problems as opportunities of solutions, and they try to say, how can I collapse time? And how can I, how can I do that in, in the most complete and, and ideally the most complete and permanent method. So it's not just putting on duct tape, it's, it's actually putting on a new tire and it's, it's actually fixing things. So, and that's one of the beautiful things that we talked is for me, my health is automated. So, you know, I've done the research and, and I, I stay up with other experts out there on what I can do to maximize it. I mean, just to kind of toot my own horn for a second is, I mean, I hadn't ran in, in gosh in years and I get myself four or five months and I was able to train and run a sub three hour marathon.
2 (32m 57s):
Why? Because I know where the research is. I know how to, how to get people or find the surround myself with the right people. So just like my mom, she's in her seventies and she's running and winning 5k races, and she was going to be on full disability. So it's, it's just looking at every problem as an opportunity versus for solution. And that successful people, they don't sit back, they take action, they jump in and they recognize that that opportunity favors the bold and they go for it,
1 (33m 22s):
Opportunity favors the bold and Fire Nation. Just once again, this is going to be an Epic event. I mean, I'm literally looking at the page right now and I'm like, why can't this be in literally this coming weekend? Because it looks like it's going to be so much fun. Opportunity does favor the bold. This is a $3,000 opportunity. That's, you're getting for $250. Thaddeus first came to me and said, Hey, we can offer, you know, your audience, five guest passes. I said, brother, make a 10 is fire nation. I want to double that. I want to get at least 10 of you down here for our nation to take this next step into this next version of your life. That's what I'm fired up about and Fire Nation, you know, that I end every episode this way, which is why I love that.
