knives- response to theArmorychannel

You recently did a article of all the knives yeah a knife I’ve collected when you can see here I got. I have five knives. I’ve got a couple more at work. These are the ones I’ve at the house, since my wife won’t. Let me buy many guns, I figure i’ll start collecting knives, so I guess we’ll kind of go smallest to largest see that it works this little guy right here.

I believe it’s a crkt. This is what they call the Ichi guess it’s one of the guys they hired in saying is razor sharp, but the tip on it. It’s so fine that I’m afraid to use it for anything, I’m afraid it’s going to break. So this kind of just sits more drawer, clicked in a bit desk, but every once a while, when I’m pretty confident tips not going to break i’ll cut a package up or something because that tip I mean that sucker no effort at all cut through anything.

Alright, this guy right here this is another crkt. This is the first pocket knife that I ever bought. It cost more than probably about ten dollars. I think I got this off. The corn will tool guy that stops by the shop and a nice display this. This one isn’t an assisted opener, but it’s got that little flipper. You pull out your pocket hit the flipper it pops right open. This is got the Tonto edge, tanto tanto, where you want to call it this knife out of the box.

It’s pretty sharp, not really impressed not anywhere near as sharp as that Ichi right there, but this knife is a lot heavier duty for a good long time. This was the knife I carried everywhere. I went and I would have total confidence that this would do anything I needed to do so. These won’t open on the table. This one right here is my latest purchase. This is another crkt knife, oh by the way that this knife is a out of the m16 line from crkt, and this crkt knife, I believe, is called the igniter t.

This is a assisted opening and to open it doesn’t have a flipper and you can’t just push it open and see. If you guys can see this we’ve got, a new system was a frame lock. I guess it’s a liner lock down here, but then there’s a lock up high and when you push that button it unlocks the blade. You can even hear that click maybe. But I tried as hard as I could to get this thing open until you push that button and then just give it just a tiny bit of flip.

I sucker flips open in re. What sold me on this knife was those serrations. I tell ya those things are sharp. I was checking this knife out. I touched some. I thought I’d cut my finger open but just cut to lick the top layer of skin. I didn’t believe it all, but I was like wow that his way is open. I thought it was guess, that’s what you call a clip point. Okay, this knife is not ambidextrous because of that locking system at locks, it closed crkt night or tea, and this is now my everyday carry.

Imagine I’m not usually a famous variations, because that’s why that’s? Why I found this one? This was hard to find because all these m16 lines, all of them, had the serrations they’re, just the normal servations I don’t like, but when I saw these bad boys I was this. I was sold. Let’s see here this one has a Smith & Wesson, spec, ops, knife. This is an assistant opener. It’s got a safety, switch red ready to go, no red safe and see that little thumb stud right there.

That’s not a flipper, it’s actually a switch. You pull! That’s you push that switch down this way comes out. This is another tant, 0 edge for whatever reason eyes I seem to like that blade shape. It’s pretty neat. Looking knife, it’s got some wow well shipping up there. Isn’t that great, I guess on the frame. You’ve got that little flip. The switch stop your finger from Ryan over there’s some decent grip down here and actually this side of the frame.

Here, it’s like grip tape on a skateboard you’re, not slipping anywhere on that. On the other side, I was pleased to see that they didn’t put that grip tape on here, because when you put that in your pocket, man got where that grip tape would rip. That grip. Your pocket up in no time but um gets its molded into the grip, is decently grippy but, like I say, you’re right, hander we’re going to hold it like this on the grip tape, we’re going to hide her thumb when the stud.

This is a. I guess this was my favorite knife. I just got that igniter. This was my favorite one. It’s Kershaw, 10 million designed. I guess this is the cycle, and this is the large one. As you can see pretty big boy and this is assisted opener. It’s got the speed safe system. You can turn the assist on turn these just off. I like to leave it on hit the flipper, which comes out Knutson. It’s a wide blade, and this I was carrying this one for a while.

Let’s go up 30 got a couple of rust spots on the blade, but that’s just part of your normal maintenance keeping your knives clean, oiled. Well I’ll, just


Knives and daggers are awesome! Plain and simple, right? Let me say, I enjoy my dagger collection with a little music playing in the background.

Sister Circle | Building multiple streams of income with money expert Dr. Lynn Richardson | TVONE

Please welcome back down and circle. Dr. Lynn, riches, yes, absolutely so! The dr. Lynn, you have a new book coming out called Parsippany and I’m going to read it exactly.

It says it’s a guide to creating and balancing multiple streams of income. Would you tell us a little bit about this, but I love the title by the way you think. Well, I wrote this book because when I was in my early 20s I had a whole lot of jobs. Like you can come to my house on a Saturday. I could write you an insurance policy of resume teach you how to get a job, how to get a man how to quit a man all over the place.

It was like. My name is Lenny and I got plenty okay. This is way too much, I’m moving, but I’m not going anywhere. So I decided to create a book, so people could actually learn how to use all of their gifts all of their talents and to have them operate like a symphony and the orchestra and their many different instruments. Yeah. If you play the instruments, you know the piano and then the organ and the cello it makes one beautiful sound.

I was going to put you in my pocket. Take you home with me: okay, but you you talk about having only one stream of income is hazardous to your wealth yeah. Can you explain that to us? Please yeah I mean, if you have one income stream and the job lays you lays you off or the boss doesn’t like you or the industry completely just goes upside down. Yeah then what happens to your wealth, and so I say that everybody is an entrepreneur.

That’s not just reserved for jay-z and Diddy and Oprah. He and Russell said: oh yeah everybody’s an entrepreneur. So if you want to be a doctor, you should still have multiple streams of income. If you want to be a teacher, you should have multiple streams of income. You can tutor, you can teach, you can do things on the side, so we should teach everybody not to go to school, get a good education going to get a good job, but go to school, get a good education and create jobs.

Yes, yes, okay, we talked about my chemistry’s of income, but how do you avoid being the jack of all trades and master? You have to find your purpose. I think that’s easy. That’s the key yeah message: key yeah! You have to find your purpose and if you do what you love, the money will follow. Yes, but you have to be consistent. You have to run your business like a business. You have to stay consistent.

Having your own business doesn’t mean you just wake up whenever you want really having your own business means you’re like working at it all the time and so trying to get to the place where you know what to do and how to do it. It comes from looking at what you’re good at what do people tell you you’re good at what do you do so easily that you think it’s nothing yeah, that’s probably an income stream and then what about all the side hustles that you can get so when you’re Trying to get to the next level financially and create streams of income, you want five active streams of income and then for passive streams.

That’s money that you don’t have to work for. It just comes in to you. So we talked about all of that and the boats almost like a residual residual income. Yes, you’re, investing from businesses that you get paid because of the work of others, multiple ways like that. One thing: I love what you said when you were like you know when you have your own busines on your own business, you just don’t wake up when you want to.

You know, like sometimes the the store may say it opens at 7:00, but I roll up at 7:00 yeah and it’s still not open, and then you kind of hang around seven-30 yeah yeah. I talk about that see. We don’t want to run janky business come on. Jinke businesses run jingle badging with bad people funk-defied in Japan, it’s all kind of together, but we want to be professional. We want to put our best image forward.

We want to make sure that we people can reach us, have social media. So not only do I talk about how to start a business and how to have multiple businesses, but why having multiple businesses makes good financial sense, because this system, the economy, operates on giving people who have businesses over 460 tax deductions. So if you are an employee, you only have about seven or eight, but if you have businesses, you have multiple tax deductions, including, for example, hiring your kids to work in your business.

You get twelve thousand dollars in deductions per child, but money that you pay them. You can now pay for their tuition. The children have to be what the maximum age is 18. The minute you shall hire them if they’re over 18. They just have to pay taxes on the money. If they’re under 18, they don’t have to pay taxes, and it’s not a sweatshop you. Your children can work in your home-based business. They can do chores and then people say well what about toddlers and infants an infant can model, so your child has to be able to do any job that any other child can do.

So if I had an infant because formula and diapers is about three, it’s like you’ll be poor trying to buy that stuff. But if you hire your infant or your toddler and then three and four-year-olds they can use iPads. So they can actually help you with social media. They can do research. My youngest daughter Kennedy has been working for me since she was four. She wanted a desk, but she’s been working for me since she was four all of my kids work in the home-based business.

Any other nieces and nephews and guide children who ask for money, they get a job too. Everybody gets a job. Everybody gets a job because I give you the money. You can’t pay me back, but if I pay you a salary, I get to write it off and you get to learn some financial skills. Let’s talk about the many people who want to start businesses and they pour their money in their time. Their effort into these businesses, but they still can’t seem to save money yeah.

So how can how can they keep money in their business? Well, the Bible says that plans fell for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed. So anybody who wants to start a business you should get a team. You should have a consultation. You should do a think-tank. You should think about all the ways you can make money without spending money. So the key in the beginning is to have low overhead extremely low overhead high profit and then move forward from there and from your profits.

Then you reinvest in your business and expand. Let’s talk a little bit about your nationally syndicated radio. Show the millionaires table so tell us a little bit about that. I’m sure you’re, probably giving information like you’re, giving here right now. What makes you say, listen! This needs to be something that everyone knows. What did you see and what inspired you to go ahead and move forward with that syndicated show? Well, I have to be honest.

This is one of those things that somebody else saw in me that I didn’t want to do myself. So the president of wvo in radio, melody, Spann in Chicago, said Lynn. I want you to do this new show called the millionaire’s round table and I’m thinking – oh my god, I don’t want to do radio blah blah, but I’m great at radio all right now. The information I was a radio show years ago, so it’s about creating millionaires, one family.

At a time you don’t have to be a millionaire, we’re going to teach you how to become $ 10,000 $ 10,000 to a first-time homebuyer. Go to Linda millionaire comm get all the details. Well, she said so. Thank you so much for all the amazing information. If you want to know more about generating multiple streams of income, be sure to pick up her book, the symphony, a guide to creating and balancing multiple streams of income everywhere, five books are sold.

Break The Glass Ceiling Of Entrepreneurship – Part3 – Business Development

Let’s expand on that. So a big problem that I see with many entrepreneurs is that they start or try to grow a business or buy a business before they understand the structure of things before they have full.

What you can say, a business plan, any structure, any process to not just grow your business organically and by acquisitions and we’ll get into that, but also have a full structure on. I guess your systems in all of your department internally, so everything from sales and marketing to operations to HR, to customer support to your financial department. You need to first of all, have a full understanding in a picture of how, first of all before that, in the first shift, we had the vision.

But now you need to understand how the vision actually looks like like on the ground right and how you? What your plan for actually executing on that vision, because most people, what they’re doing is, I see them, go out there and they try to raise capital just on an idea which, in my opinion, it’s not enough, especially if you want to buy a business. Unless you have a full understanding of how that business will look like after you go into that and buy that or grow your business internally, it’s going to be really hard and same go for hiring people before you have a full understanding of what each role looks.

Like in your business and have a full, literally system for how the business looks like in is ideal scenario, you can’t feel the gaps in bringing people on board to those structures. Unless you know what are those structures? Who are those people who need to basically fill those roles? First of all, you need to understand what even what roles you even need in that business. So I hope that makes sense and that’s what I want to expand in this article.

So one of the problems – people are doing they’re hiring people and they don’t have systems or processes for those employees to follow. Basically, they don’t have systems in general that everyone can follow and understand what exactly they need to complete every week or every day. In order for them to be successful, and before you know those things you can bring people before, you know what their exact role is going to be.

And again, I don’t care if it’s for your existing business or if it’s for a business that you’re looking to buy you got ta, have a full structure or understanding of how a business need to look like and what are the processes? And you, especially if you want to become the owner investor, the shareholder, the advisor you got ta have a full understanding of how that picture, going to look like from a high-level position and then also to understand with yourself.

What are the KPIs that you need to track? What are the exact numbers and data that you need to get every day and every week to have a full understanding on your vision? Because if you want to have an amended management team running that business? For you, a professional manager or professional managers running those different departments in your business. You need to understand what are those departments, what is going to be in each department who are what are their roles? What are their goals for every day for every week for every quarter for every year, and unless you have that vision and understanding on that structure, you can’t go out and expect to get.

I guess the results because, first of all, you probably don’t even know what KPI is. You need to track with each of those people and unless you know those things you can expect to have a good, profitable business and that’s to begin with, and I’m talking about the little things, the little nuances that you need to understand in each department. So, for example, it looks like the accounting department, most people, most entrepreneurs, that I talked to you own six or seven figure businesses or don’t own a business.

I want to grow other and start one or buy one. They don’t have the business acumen. They don’t know how to even read a P & L or a balance sheet. It looks like Chinese for them. They don’t know how to look for ratios inside their balance sheet or P & L and how to make conclusions from those numbers in order to actually make changes in their business. They don’t know how to even handle those things in those departments or what are their roles and KPIs that they need to track in those departments like tracking accounts, receivables or payables.

In order to make sure that you have a better trading business and a better business that produces producing even more cash flow, so that’s why it’s so important to have that business development process and systems. First, before you bring anything else before you’re bringing the people before you bring in capital, and obviously you can’t build that business development plan before you have the business strategy and the vision for things you want to look like in a year from now.

In a few years, from now, in ten years from now, if you are like most business on our business owners out there, your business probably looks like kind of like your wheel with spokes all over it. Where you are like in the center of that wheel and you’re, basically responsible for almost everything and everything you need to go through, you and everything is dependent on you and you can’t transition yourself from an owner manager, employee operator, to an owner, shareholder, visionary investor.

Unless you removing yourself from those roles and unless you have the structures, so everything is working well without you, it’s going to be really really hard to make that transition. Those things and many more is what creating a bottleneck inside your business and most people or business owners or entrepreneurs. They don’t know what metrics they need to follow, or they don’t even know what metrics are important to follow right.

So when you have those that lack of fundamentals, it’s really hard to scale things in a good way and I’m going to get into more of the details of how to build an organic plan to grow in an acquisition a way to grow. But unless you have those fundamentals you can grow by buying other businesses and there’ll be shitty businesses it’ll be basically these stress businesses they’re just going to take a lot of time from you, and you can’t really make anything from that you want to make.

I know many people who buy many distressed businesses, but then they need they need to liquidate and shut down those businesses after a few months. And is it really worth your time to go and buy a bad business and spend a lot of time and sometimes money to try and turn it around? Because you don’t have the good fundamentals to begin with, because you don’t know if there are some opportunities in those businesses or not, and same goes for going growing organically.

If you don’t have the good fundamentals to begin with, maybe you’re not even getting or trying to get the right client, maybe you can get a better client that will pay you ten times more in a different place and all those different things are literally the small Nuances that will make the distinctions and breakthrough of basically creating the separate decision. If it’s business is going to make it or not it’s pretty simple, I mean many businesses literally grow by lack.

They don’t have a clear market or an understanding of why they’re even more unique than their competitors. They don’t have, even if they personally think that they know why they’re unique they don’t have a full system. That is very, I guess, open to everyone else in their company for everyone else to follow, and unless you know their unique is like many people I know would literally get to 6 or 7 s here literally by luck.

They got some opportunity. They got there, but then what happens is it after a while they don’t understand what happens, they don’t have a full understanding of their processes and then they have to shut down their business because they don’t have those fundamentals. To begin with. Now, let’s talk about plans for growth, so most people that I know own a business or want to get into business. They want to either start from scratch or try to get one client at a time literally hustled their way into getting one client.

At a time doing advertising here, advertising they’re, going to events, doing doing direct marketing and all those different strategies and they’re always looking for the next technology that will help them to give to get the next client at the break-even or a profitable marketing campaign right. So that’s what most people are doing they, and even if they’re doing that, most people don’t even have a full system and process to understand what is exactly the best way to get one client at the time and how to put themselves back from those processes.

So a team can do that for them and that’s the first way. Most people try to grow and pretty much the only way that most business owners try to grow just because most of the books and seminars and retreats out there are on that way of growing business growing organically. By doing more sales and marketing most entrepreneurs don’t even know that they can start their journey in entrepreneurship by buying another existing profitable established business or if they have an existing business.

They don’t even know that they can grow their business by going out there and merging with other companies or by buying other companies in their sectors who are complementary business to theirs, who are either their competitors, and they think that they need to have millions of dollars. In their bank to buy those businesses which far away from being the truth, because you can basically the beauty with buying businesses, unlike many other things, is that you don’t have to have 100 cent of the cash on hand.

Because you can use the acquisition target assets. As a leverage to pay for the business itself, you can literally go to financial institutions and tell them hey. Look. I had this business I want to buy and I have all those assets in that business. Let’s leverage those assets to paid for that business and I’m not even talking about negotiation strategies like puttin, Erin out or future cash flow projections to pay for the acquisition cost and that’s how you can do deals and grow literally by year’s worth of sales.

In an afternoon, by going out there and by those businesses with employees, with managers with access to more products to more cash flow, to more revenues to more operations, so, for example, if you have an existing business, let’s say whatever you have a web design company. You can go out there and buy a marketing agency who’s, doing like Google AdWords for businesses, and you can then do cross selling and seen it in save costs.

For example, if you have a list of clients and your services, you can then sell your services to their list of clients and vice versa, there’s so many cross selling opportunities that will basically save your costs from going out there and cry and quiet try to acquire New clients, because you already have that rapport and Trust with that business that you bought and I’m not even talking about synergies and so much capital that you can save from having synergies.

Because, let’s say you bought another company, you only need one department of each. You only need one HR department. You only need one marketing department, one accounting department, one customer – would support the part. All this depends on the business and all that, for example, if you’re in the same location, you only need one office and you can save so much money by buying other businesses and it’s all going to go down to your bottom line, to your net profit and Most people don’t already it’s even possible that they can grow a business by going out there and buying other businesses, and they don’t need much capital if at all, like we’ve done bills without putting any dollar down.

Just because we had enough assets in that business. To pay for that business itself and there’s so many cool things you can do there like look at the business biggest businesses out there, that’s the way they grow like when you’re, very, very big when you’re big like Facebook, for example, your only way to grow and Meet your shareholders demands is to go out there and buy other companies, there’s only so much internal growth that you can do only so much sales and marketing and optimization of your cost internal that you can do, but what the biggest companies out there are doing.

They’re going out there and they’re buying other businesses. That’s why Facebook, both companies like what’s up and Instagram, because to do all those things internally in their business, it very very different. It’s going to be so much difficult for you! Instead, you can just go out there and buy those businesses, and what Facebook is doing is they’re, basically buying Instagram with their shirts and that’s what you can do with just small businesses.

You don’t have to be a profitable, a huge mega business that it’s trading out there in the public. You can be a small business that will fold those same strategies like the big corporations, but still keep your freedom, not sacrificing your time, but most people don’t even know that it’s possible and again you have to have all those different strategies and structures to begin with. Before you go out there and bring capital and bring the right people and all those things in order to take things again to the next level, so you can become an owner investor owner, shareholder, the visionary, instead of being stuck in a business.

It’s so frustrating to see many people start their business because they want to be their own boss, but then they’re stuck in their own business and don’t get me wrong. I think it’s better to be stuck in your own business than working for someone else, but then is it really why you’ve started the business most people that I know didn’t start their business in order to have less time or to be stuck in something that many Times they don’t even like doing, because the the work is very reputable when you are very involved in the day-to-day.

So that’s the next shift for us next we’re going to talk about some more really really important things for you to check out. So I’m looking forward for you to see that the next article in the series and yeah I’ll see you in a bit.

Starting a business is not easy! Think about who will be working on your digital image. Hiring a good webmaster will help!
