Justine Mader  0:06  
Okay, let's go.

Jake Anderson  0:07  
All right. So let me get this cued up.

Announcer  0:11  
introspective, inward looking, self examining, characterized by or given to introspection. Welcome to the introspective podcast, your compass for internalizing the path towards optimal lifestyle design, business success and mindful entrepreneurship with your host, Jake Anderson.

Jake Anderson  0:35  
Hey, welcome back, we are here for another episode of introspective. And we're going to talk about something that goes a little bit against the grain I think from what popular belief is, and you always hear this statement about work life balance, and how that is kind of the goal to strive for, whether it's, you know, nine to five job, or, if you're in business entrepreneurship people are trying to find that balance with with their time, that's really what it is, is our time, we all have this fixed amount of time, every day in terms of how we can distribute that towards our work, how we distribute that towards our family, how we distribute that towards our hobbies, our self care. And just the thought of it, I mean, there's so many little sections of the pie where that that 24 hours gets distributed, it can be a little bit overwhelming for people to really kind of embrace, and you keep coming back to this, Oh, you got to have a work life balance, you got to have the work life balance. But we're gonna we're gonna actually challenge that in today's interview, among many other things. But that's something I definitely want you to really kind of sit back and really open some headspace for is challenging this whole thought of work life balance, and, and we're gonna get a shift, we're going to shift your perspective, that's the goal here is to create that shift in the thinking about things a little bit differently. And to help me create this shift. Today, I have brought on my good friend Justine Mater, who is a life in business integration coach who helps thriving women break through the glass ceiling, without compromising on their priorities. And as a coach, speaker, podcast co host She is always down for growth and relationships. Her favorite title is mom. And that's due to her two little boys that are the force behind our movement and commitment to success in the president. I welcome to the show, Justin Mater. Justin, how are you doing today? It's good to see.

Justine Mader  2:30  
So excited to be here. This is long overdue, I have been so excited to see not only your podcast, just boom, Jake, but to embrace these conversations. And that's how we met. For those that don't know, I met Jake in an incredible intimate networking opportunity when he was launching his show and bringing people that were of like minds. And so when I say that, I'm passionate about relationships. I'm passionate about relationships, you guys like this is this is what I live for. So I'm so excited to be here today.

Jake Anderson  2:57  
Well, I am too. And I remember we were talking before the recording. And I think that's what really drew the energy together here was like that core value foundation of relationships and the importance of it. And I think people in business, when they when they start understanding and that clicks for them. I mean, everything they do from like, how they post our content, to how they have conversations on podcasts or interviews to even how they do sales pitches. Like I think when you start kind of thinking about it from the standpoint of a relationship, and that's what it needs to be built on. I think things get a little bit easier for you. Well, what do you think?

Justine Mader  3:38  
Oh my gosh, yes. So it's so crazy. Because for people that don't know me, entrepreneurship was not in my, my projection of what my world was gonna look like. So, for me, when I entered this world, I was like, how do I handle marketing? How do I handle? You know, ads? How do I handle all these different things that make up what I thought of business was, business is not what you do. Business is who you are with the people that you connect with businesses that are made, made of humans supporting each other in a crazy advancing world, whether it's through technology, through advancements in medicine, it's all about humans, human beings, right? And so when I was able to take that step back after burnout after just total frustration, and I'm not gonna lie, it was really, really depressing. I was like, I'm doing all the things I thought I had to do. And I was forgetting to be human in that space with these people, with these incredible people. And so when I had the chance to take that step back, I want to say that was about a year and a half ago when that happened for me, and I started just really focusing on the people that DM me. When I focused on the people that were commenting on my post being like, Oh my gosh, this made my day or oh my gosh, I needed this shift. I was like, Wow, that's a huge that's that's another account. That's another person that is looking for What it is that I have to offer, right? It wasn't even just a sale, it was that energy of, I just changed someone's life today. And I didn't know why, what. But it made it all worth it. And so it changed, it changed my perspective of what I was in the game for. And I'm in the game for humans, I'm in the game for relationships, and it has been such an incredible change in me, it allowed me to get deal through the relationships through the energy and grow through so many mistakes, such as being caught up in the perfectionist mindset of, if that'll look instead perfect. And it's got to be this, it's got to be that because that doesn't matter. If you show up for your people, if you're raw and real with your people, you will have business for your life.

Jake Anderson  5:44  
Yes, I love that. And when it comes down to to the human element, and that was the thing for me, like I came into, into entrepreneur into online space. Because the online space, I mean, I was in the brick and mortar, that's where I got started, I had a lighting company, and it was, you know, I had that like a 4000 square foot warehouse with all these crazy lighting fixtures. And, and it was very different when I came into the online space from that world. Because in that world I was in, it was a bit slower kind of makes me think of like the 50s. It's like, your like local brick and mortar. It's like everything slow or you know, it's like if you want to connect with somebody, you got to get in your car and like drive to the networking event have like actual three dimensional conversations with people coffee, coffee, and then you meet for lunch and, and then you move in the online space and everything. So, so fast and quick. And, and just, it can almost lead and I've seen this before where when I first came into the online space with the exception of some people that I think really got it and definitely you're certainly one of them was that I would notice that relationships seem to live on the superficial kind of like surface level of, of the newsfeed of you know, everything's defined by gifts and text and emojis. And it's like, Where's the actual human interaction here? Like real human interaction. So I was I kind of came into I remember coming into that space feeling a little bit lost there. And but the thing you you said, I think is really important to note, talking about the online space, not just as you know, yes, there's that surface level piece, but also talking about it from the standpoint of your speed to impact is so much greater. So you can we need to have that drive to the copy that drive to the network of it. And it's seriously like, we're in VMs. And it's instantaneous, and you can ask a question, or you can get some support, and it's instantaneous, you can impact so many more people, then you can, you know, in that physical 3d world, you know, the real world or however you want to define it. So I think I just wanted to highlight that, you know, because I think that's really important for people to really keep in mind here that entering into the online space. Yes, there's definitely some aspects of it, that can feel a little bit super superficial, but at the end of the day, your speed to impact is a lot greater. And you certainly recognize that and that's something that seems to be like, would you say that that was your biggest entrepreneur shift in perspective and entrepreneurship? Was there like what else happened? Because it's not in there was there was a lot of, you know, because you did VA work, right? Like that was kind of what you started with. You were doing this

Justine Mader  8:28  
every man hey, yeah.

Jake Anderson  8:30  
The VA work I try. I try. I try to keep like, you know, there's, there's, there's some memory cells left in there that I tried to maintain, but, but I know you did VA work. So that service provider, so tell me about like that's kind of trance transformed into coaching and consulting. So tell me about that transformation.

Justine Mader  8:48  
So I love this question. Because I can say number one thing is people are they're sad or ashamed of their transformation story. And I just want to illustrate this a little bit. So Jake knows this but in case you guys don't, I actually came from the dental industry. So Dental Assisting was my, my everything. And I was a thriving dental assistant worked for different positions at the office, I was in living at great and doing all the things. And I quit not because I did like the job not because I you know, was unsatisfied with my career. But genuinely I quit because I was going to raise my son at home. We were blessed with our first child. And that was our big change. That was our big shift. And so when it started, I was looking for a business I was looking for more I found myself to be depressed. And it was one of those moments where I had to ask myself what made me happy. And it was serving people and I was like, how can I serve people and get that opportunity of becoming the best me while honoring my priorities? So I turned to the online space, you guys I didn't know what the word entrepreneur meant. Everyone had it in their bio and I was like, What the heck is this? Everyone's an entrepreneur. No. Like, I don't even know what that means so I had to really set out on education. And the number one thing that I saw that I could do straight away was being assistant to these business owners, you know whether that I was more focused on the administration and communication side of it, because those were my superpowers. But it was one of those things where I didn't even know the extent of what like the online space space. And it happened through action and have them through implementation. So my journey started by me honoring my priorities first. So the biggest part of like, even who I am now, as a coach, is I was doing the thing that I didn't know other people were struggling to do. I didn't know that. And so when it came to mindset and implementation strategy in business, and you know, kind of creating that harmony in your life business, it came to me as something that I just drove for, and someone was like, I need you to be my coach for that. You're just my, you know, virtual assistant, but I really, I need, I was called out to be a coach, I didn't help coaching was a thing, you guys, it was that bad, I was that new to the space. And so I set out, I actually hired a coach, because I said, I take this really seriously, I want to serve this person by over delivering, I want to give them all of my things that I don't know how to deliver me to that. How do I do that? How do I get my thoughts on paper? How do I get my heart in their heart? How do we get that soul connection. And so it was really, that the coach that I had was phenomenal. And that was a great pivotal moment in me investing in myself, especially when you know, even for my husband, my husband doesn't care for the online space. He's very physical. And so it's one of those things where he's like, if I can't hold it, I can't build it, I can't touch it. This is not my thing. And so I had to empower my own investment in myself. And I did that because I was working. I did that because I had invested in creating a business. And so when I took that step, that transition followed me, in the sense of I was always taking a bet on me, showing up being the best version of me in that space of what do I want out of the situation? And then being like, how can I serve? And so it changed from being a virtual assistant into a coach. Now, I've been on summit and the speaker, I've been able to work with big leaders like Dean graziosi, and host people on my podcast like Jim quick, it's something I'm very humbled by, because I never, I never saw it in my future. I'll be honest, Jake, I never I never thought that. But because of that, it gives me so much hope for everyone listening for my future self, that there's nothing we can't accomplish, if we stay true to who we are, and to the priorities that we hold, dear. Because those are the things that matter. And those are my definition of success.

Jake Anderson  12:44  
Hmm, that's powerful. And and when you're when you're describing this, all I could think is, it's so amazing how entrepreneurship unfolds, this like exciting road ahead of you that you just never knew, or Jesus never thought was possible. And I remember like you said, it's like, I got into VA, I was a VA, and then that led in the coaching. Now I'm doing stuff, Dean, and then have just interviewed Jim quick. It's like, Where the heck did this come from? Like, you know, how did that happen? Like sometimes I mean, and that's the thing, that's one thing I love about podcasting is you can actually have conversations with people of incredible influence, it's a lot easier than you realize. And it's a lot more it's very much so possible. I mean, if you want to speak to celebrity level people go start a podcast and really commit to it. That's that'll, that'll get you there. And so it's amazing to hear that. And I think I think there's certainly, you know, I always kind of look at, like entrepreneurship, it's, it's as much as you're building a business, but it's very much so a personal development journey, as well. In fact, I think that's probably the biggest aspect of it is the personal development, because your business is as strong as, as you allow yourself to become, you know, if you want to limit yourself, then your business will be, you know, limited with is almost direct correlation between the two. So I know something and I want to shift into talking about the integrated lifestyle. Because as I was opening up the episode, I knew that there is this perspective out there about work life balance, and that's something you don't believe in, you believe in something different. So let's share this What is this thing called integrative lifestyle? And how is that different than the popular belief that we hear today?

Justine Mader  14:39  
I love this question. And one of those things. It's such a debate for people because it's going against a social norm. Right? Yeah, we hear so much and people don't understand the power of words. People don't understand what it does to not only our mental state, but our physical state we perceive ourselves as incapable in our mind in our bodies and our souls. And so it's One of those things that I'm here to challenge the status quo because I shouldn't be here, period, there's been things that you know, if you follow my story, either there's reasons I shouldn't be here. But if I am here, I believe that I'm here for a purpose. And I believe Jake is here for a purpose. And if you're listening today, you are here for a purpose as well. And I believe that without life, there is no business. So why would we put work or business before life? Why? And I don't think we think about it, because we don't take the second to stop. Like Jake said earlier, you were mentioning, you know, how things are so fast, you know, whether it's in the DMS, whether it's in purchasing things, you know, it's not the shipping risk, you know, it's not even shopping, it's shipping, you know, anymore, you click it, you get it, you know, it's not even, we don't even live in an industry where things are slow enough for us to grasp the concepts beside behind our words. So if we take this step back, it's like, Whoa, I never meant. And this is so funny, because every conversation I've had with a business owner is like, Oh, I never meant that business came before life. Oh, my gosh, no, that never comes before my kids. What are you saying, Hey, how are you responding? How are you following through with that in your life or business? How are your kids being trained to look at the entrepreneurship world through your eyes, or whether the nine to five, it doesn't matter? But most of our listeners here are business owners. How are you? And I'm very passionate about the next generation, because like Jake said, you know, we both had kids, it's so incredible. But it's one of those things, how were we being an example of our own mindsets of our own teachings of our own beliefs, you guys. And so for me, how I define life and business integration is less than business integration. It's intentional. It's strategic. And it's specific to my definition of success. And it's going to be different than Jake's definition of success. It's going to be different than everybody else listening here. And if it wasn't, I'd be concerned, because then you wouldn't have autonomy. I want you all to ask yourselves, right now, as you're listening to this, what is your definition of success? Because I can tell you life and business integration, but that's going to mean something on totally different levels for you than it does. Some of the things that it means for me, just to give you perspective, is faith and family first searched and, and free right time, my greatest asset is my time. And the second asset is my energy, my energy to come and do podcast, my energy to be the best mom I can beat to be the best wife to be the badass on whatever I want to do.

What I don't guard that, if I don't uphold the boundaries that I expect other people to do, then I'm actually doing everyone a disservice. Because I'm not living up to the potential that I was created to live up to. And like I said earlier, if you are here, your heart is beating, you have a purpose. And you hold a puzzle piece in somebody else's puzzle that's not complete without you showing up as you. So when people ask why you're passionate about it, why do we need it because it's not the norm anymore. I think that when the world was slower, it kind of forced us to put life first. Because we had to take care of life before we went to work we got in the car, and we went and you know, had to get to work right? workers at home, I'm at my home, Jake's in his home, you know, or even if we're in our offices, I don't care where you find yourself. There is such a easy, not easy. It's it's a lot less strenuous, to do work. So what happens, work, life versus life work. And that's, that's the transition. That's the pivot that I challenge each and every one of you to think about today. It's the power in your words, the power in your thoughts, the power in your actions, which one is going first, my dad always used the old thing. And you've all probably heard this, don't put the cart in front of the horse, or don't put the cart in front of the horse. But how many of us are doing that without knowing we're doing that? Like, it's when we when we put it into anything like a metaphor, like a carton of horse. It sounds stupid. We do it all the time. So when we when we take that moment to reflect to slow down and be like, hey, analyze, is this actually in alignment with what I'm doing? Is this in alignment with who I am? Is this in alignment with what I want to accomplish for myself for my legacy for you know, X, Y, and Z. That's where things change. And the reason I'm even more passionate about this, you guys is because I've had the privilege. I say privileged because it is truly a privilege to work with very successful people that don't have successful lives. There's a difference between successful in business and successful at life. And if I could encourage you to do one thing, I would encourage you to define what that successful life is because of it. includes business, you can have all of that. But if you don't have a successful life, the business will never be worth it. It will never ever achieve what it is that you desire in this life. And we have one shot, because we have one shot at this. So don't wait for tomorrow. Don't wait for next year, next quarter, I don't care. It's all about what we do today, how we do and why we're doing it. And Jake talks about, you know, going deep and really digging into what it is that you're doing. So like this, this shouldn't be new for you guys to hear. This is gonna be repetition. At this point, I'm preaching to the choir. But at the same time, allowing yourself to take that step back and analyze where you are at. I think 2020 really caused a lot of people to do that with quarantine. But those were a lot of people that were in that busy world. I don't know if it affected entrepreneurs the same way. So I'm seeing kind of a divide in that as well. Many people quit their jobs or lost their jobs. So they have kind of joined ranks with us not that there was a you know, greater than or less than just a different tribe, and welcome welcoming them into the family. I can sense this, like, Oh, my gosh, you would do that before you would go with your kids. I would never do that at corporate. But why is it okay? When you can work from home and have your computer on and just throw on a show for your kid? Like, what, what is that for you. And that's why I use the word integration. Because I don't believe in balance, integration is intentional. If you want something to be a part of your life, if you want to be that inclusive father, if you want to be that present mother, those are the things that you have to figure out what that is for you to create that holistic mastery of the harmony in your life in business.

Jake Anderson  21:49  
So let me ask you this. And by the way, let me just a little side note here. You're seeing a movie Independence Day, the first Independence Day. Okay, I ain't listening.

Justine Mader  22:02  
There's not positive, there's the title.

Jake Anderson  22:07  
There's a speech by the president before they go and fight the aliens. That's like the most motivational speech like you'll ever hear. What you just said is like, right there at number one. And then number two is a speech from Independence Day like that was so anybody who's ever seen Independence Day is probably smiling right now, I can't remember that presidential speech and was like, Oh, so powerful. Like That was amazing. So I just want to just acknowledge that for a second, the way you you lay that out, was unbelievable. So, so one state that but moving into it, there was something you said that it really clicked in my head as kind of a lightbulb moment. And I want to speak to that for a minute. So and that was, you know, people who are successful in business, but they're not unsuccessful in life. And I believe that, that I believe that's very true. In fact, that was me with my last company, I was successful in business, but I was miserable in my life. It was a very dark place for me. And I just wasn't where I should where I was supposed to be. Thankfully, that business has now sold and it's behind me, which was like I fantasized about that day for probably three years. I was like, I can't wait to be out. It was like a prison sentence. It does. It can feel like a prison sentence. But but but this is the thing, you can be successful at business, but not net. But that doesn't mean you'll be successful at life. But I believe that you can be successful at life. And if you're successful at life, you'll be successful in business. I think that's kind of the difference in thinking here. So when it comes to this integrated lifestyle, we start with the lifestyle, we start thinking about what is the lifestyle that we want? And how do we integrate the business into the lifestyle that we desire to have? From a tactical standpoint, would you say that that is accurate from like, thinking about it? Like, okay, I want this integrated? Excuse me, integrated lifestyle? Where do I start? It starts with the lifestyle. And then you figure out how to because I've had this conversation, Justin, let me tell you something, like when you go through a really bad experience with the business, it almost gives you PTSD, because when you get because meaning going into this next chapter, I mean, I was like the pivot came in 2020 I was pivoting all over the place with business ideas because I was so afraid of something putting me back in that dark place. And I started thinking about the lifestyle as kind of the drive being the horse I guess the lifestyles, the horse, right? Maybe Maybe we're getting back to that metaphor, which

Justine Mader  24:36  
Yeah, I'm thinking it Let's go.

Jake Anderson  24:38  
So we're kind of dig so let's kind of break this down for a minute. So it's like for somebody like, Yes, I can fully hear you and I definitely want all that. Well, how do I start with my mindset? How do I start thinking about this from a kind of a, you know, an approach of getting into this and making sure that you know, get caught in that entrepreneur trap because that can vary. What happened you find a business opportunity, it seems very possible in a very promising and you go into it. And before you know it, you're you're so far deep into it, it's like, the only way to get out is to dig your way out, and you're stuck and you're miserable. And you're like, Oh my gosh, I'm in all this debt right now. And it's making money, but I got to like, crawl out of it. And I'm miserable. And I don't like this. And, and I think that people who end up in that place, and this is my opinion, based on myself really, is it starts from a place of kind of chasing the money and chasing the business. And that thinking about what's the life you're really trying to create, like, what's the commitment look like? So let's talk about that for a minute. Because I know that the listeners are probably, if I could guess putting myself in the shoes of the listener to probably thinking that was amazing. I'm like so moved right now that I'm ready to take action on this integrated lifestyle. So let's, let's get these people in action. Right? Let's do this. So

Justine Mader  26:02  
I'm so all about no more just like rah rah, we actually have something to like, rah rah, do. So I love I love that, that you share that. And I think I need to shout you out here too, because so many people are afraid to share that they have been in a dark space. So many people are scared to share. Not you know, and so many people will say I had a dark time. Okay, well, that's wonderful. We all have dark times. But you actually went through that. And I think that that's a vulnerability. That's not common. So I appreciate that in you, Jake. Because it really shares a lot of actually sums up I went through I went all in on a business venture that was a total scam. And I lost so much time and so much energy. And I was crushed. I didn't know the online space. I was like, Oh, so this is what the online world is like, great. And I was devastated. But it was one of those things where I was like, You know what, there's got to be better people out there. I just got to find them. I just got to find them, which has led me to amazing things like you, and other incredible opportunities. But it's one of those things where where you're not willing to?

How would you say,

to share the message as a lesson, we actually can never heal? Yeah, so that PTSD will never go away, that fear will never go away. And I know that for myself, because I recently connected with some new Brand Partners and I took a step to that was absolutely freaky for me, not because they're not good people. But because I was hurt, not because they didn't respect me. But because someone had totally lied to me. And it was one of those things where, you know, for somebody listening to this right now that has been scammed has been hurt has been totally, you know, just blown to the sidewall. That's not everyone, you can only focus on you. And so this is even more important if you have been hurt, because you are your source of energy. God has given you a heartbeat, you are the one that makes the choices in this life. You can't, you can't rely on exterior forces, we just can't in the world. As crazy as it is we don't even have to go down that rabbit hole. That's another conversation that we're not going to have on the podcast. So. But again, back to the rah rah and I appreciate show heartfully your words there, Jake, the number one thing that I need each and every one of you to do listening right now is become aware, if you are aware that you're making a choice based on money based on, you know, followers, or you know, realize that it's not in alignment with yourself, and you're kind of like, Oh, this kind of feels icky, I'm not sure if I really want to do this. You have to be aware in order to change it. But if you're flexing that muscle of I'm just doing it because I have to this is just the hustle, I gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta make money, this is just what I got to do, you're not going to be able to break that chain, you're not going to be able to break that habit of just reaction. So in order to change that, we have to be proactive through awareness. And that's how you can anticipate what's coming to you and be like, this is who I am. Does this align with me? Or does it not? Nope. There goes, yes, hey, now let's do this. And so I think the number one thing in order for you to build an integrated life in business according to your definition of success, it starts with awareness. It starts with awareness and everything that you do everything that you say and everything that you think because if you're looking at everything like Jake just shared through that lens of PTSD, of hurt, of pain of just you know, betrayal, you know, or whatever it is that was going on in your, your experience. You're gonna assume all of that onto people onto things. That desert not only don't deserve that, but probably aren't that and it's in our human nature to hold a grudge when we're hurt. It's in our human nature to to do Judge. And so if I could encourage you guys with this awareness to take an extra dose of kindness with you, and kindness doesn't mean being a doormat. Kindness does not mean falling for stupid stuff. Kindness does not mean any of the weakness that the world portrays that kindness means being a decent person to someone who doesn't deserve it. That's not being a doormat. Kindness is standing in your truth and being like, you know what, I understand that that's your perspective. But this is not a good business move. For me right now, I wish you all the best. There is a level of respect that you must hold yourself to, in this season of developing your life and business integrated system, and ability. And if you don't start respecting yourself through that awareness, then you can't expect anyone else to support you on that.

Jake Anderson  30:50  
Awareness is so huge. It's so huge. And it's almost like if you and there's there's even like, sometimes I've been getting into things like breathwork and meditation just to like create space for awareness. And when you do that, there's the there's almost a there's just such a transformation there. Especially when you when you let go the negativity, you know, holding you mentioned like holding a grudge. And I was actually speaking with somebody on an interview yesterday about forgiveness, and how forgiveness can be like some of the you don't realize how much weight you carry around with you with grudges, until you forgive. And when you forgive, and you feel that weight that just drips off your shoulders. Right? Wow, that was heavy. I didn't realize I was carrying around such a load on my shoulders of of just heaviness from from this grudge. And when you release I

Justine Mader  31:47  
know the heaviest weight chain. What's, what's that? Don't forgive yourself.

Yeah, not just others, because it's forgiving yourself coming from someone

that struggled with that still does still

mean that the trenches you guys, I'm not here talking down to you, I am talking with you. And I just want you to know from my heart, living an integrated life is a daily, a daily striving, a daily goal. And you know, whether it's forgiveness, like Jake is saying kindness, new perspective, awareness, it's all about becoming the best version of you.

Jake Anderson  32:27  
Absolutely. That's, you know, that's my why when people are like, what's your wife's like to become the best version of myself? Because, yeah, and even like, I even have a wife for the podcast, like, Well, my, like, people ask me, like, Why do you do a podcast. And then at the very deepest level, I'll share I don't think I've ever shared this actually, with anybody other than, like, a couple people. And so yeah, and even on the podcast, I will probably do an episode. Because it is kind of important. Go Jake, is here to share the why. So the reason why I do my podcasts, as you know, as you know, I have two little boys, they're four and seven. And I, the greatest gift, I feel, I mean, there's, there's, there's a lot of things to kind of stand up there. But one amazing gift I think I can get my children is the gift of wisdom. And I know that when they hit the age where they start to become adults, and they're kind of moving into the real world. You know, Daddy's documented. I don't know, probably about time, probably 1000s, of interviews, episodes with amazing people. And they can actually follow my entire journey, from the time when they were little kids all the way up to being grown adults. And they can see every step of the way. And they can follow my introspective of how I had to make decisions through this process of growth. And it'll be it'll be a blueprint for them. And that's my why that's why I do this podcast. That's the main reason why among anything else, it really has nothing to do with like, I mean, it does have stuff. But if there's a personal brand side to it, but like at the deepest level, that's what motivates me to do it. Because I'm I'm creating that that documentation that my kids will have, you know, for a lifetime, you know, so that's

Justine Mader  34:13  
so incredible. And I think for everyone listening, I hope you just realized that. That's why he brings the people on here. That's why he cares about who he has. He cares about his tribe, his community and what he's providing for his boys, you know, in their future is something that you can tangibly harness now. And I think that's just so incredible. Jake, I love that you shared that.

Jake Anderson  34:32
