Below is the transcription for this episode:

Dave:  Hey what's going on my friends happy Monday and welcome to wake up legendary. My name is Dave Sharpe today and I'm going to be very hydrated. This is only one of three drinks that are standing by. And so I hope you have some half man or whatever keeps you going as well. And we'll have a fantastic guest once again. I'm really excited to talk to another one of our fantastic members, legendary marketers. Here's an Army vet and nurse who has built her business and had some results early and 42,000 views on a first reel. Wow. Holy smokes. We're setting the expectations really high. Let's welcome Stephanie to the show. Those are some fantastic results. I'm sure not not an overnight success. Although I'm excited to hear all about your journey, and tell us where you're calling in from.

Stephanie:  I'm calling them from Missouri, southwest Missouri. I have lived here my whole life. Yeah, yeah, I was in Kansas for a little bit but

Dave:  I got you Yeah, me as well. I've been in the same city. Even my children two of my three kids are born in the same hospital that I  was born in.

Stephanie: There you go. That's awesome.

Dave:  I can relate to the hometown thing. So tell us your legendary story. How did you find us and what were you looking for?

Stephanie:  Well, you know, funny thing. I really wasn't even looking for a side hustle or anything. So that's kind of a different, you know, kind of perspective for us, you know, and I was just scrolling along Facebook reels one day and it was different things. I was like, wow, that's really interesting. What in the world is she talking about? So it was kind of a little, you know, kind of trying to figure things out there. So checked up, see what she had to offer. And that's kind of how I ended up here. But I mean, a little more backstory before that. Yeah, that one thing that kept us all in our houses for a long time and just kind of messed with everybody's financial situation a little bit. built up a little bit of hey, you know, let's check this out because I had a certain specialty that I worked in, and then it was kind of low census for just different like facilities they were kind of saving up money for like worst case scenario, things so then they tend to cut positions or not post new jobs. So then I went back and worked as an RN for a little bit because I'm, I'm a nurse practitioner. So I went back and worked on the floor during that time frame. And it was a really good experience though helping other people that were really sick and all and then I have a good stable NP job now, but then just different things that accrue like debt and school loans that are already there that just kind of puts a damper on things also. And it's like, Man, how am I going to manage all that and then my favorite was scrolling through the Facebook girls. I wasn't even on Tik Tok or anything. So I was just like, wow, let's check that out. 

Dave: So you became more open to opportunity because you're in the medical field. And you were there to help there to serve. And it's just not. It's not an abundance and there's not enough stability and there's not enough security for you. You did like any human being would do if you were your prey or even like you said, looking for something but you are entertaining yourself. You are open minded to other possibilities. And so the millimeters that you would be calling or starting an online business.

Stephanie:  I mean, Honestly, that was really interesting to me. It's not to say like, learn all about this, you know, so it's more than just working your nine to five I mean, you can still have your passion like said nursing is my passion. And I love helping people. And also I was a nurse practitioner when I worked as an RN

Dave: Yeah. And don't you find coming from a place of being of service and leadership in your other role? Not so amazing. That is so this, those same just good personal skills and communication skills, just quality leadership skills. People feel competent, making people feel cared for making people feel seen, not being you know, like a lot of times we see people on the internet who are they seem like they're mean or passive aggressive or whatever, but really bringing that good compassion and that good solid quality service based leadership over into now this business don't you see? Also as I see how if you can just focus on really those qualities in those skills in this business, nearly half the battle would you agree with that? 

Stephanie:  Oh, yeah, absolutely. For sure. Yeah. And like we just let you know by the way people show like come on and get all those little golden nuggets of information to apply to everything. And so the 50,000 year old secret here, mainly just communication, just relates with other people.

Dave:  I mean, in you know, nursing, I really have learned a big lesson. In the past, I'd say, you know, since we launched this business, this is sort of like, I learned so much now in the second part of my career. I don't know if it's the second half of this is, you know, when I started I, I had all this impostor syndrome and all of the kind of trying to get comfortable in my own skin and figure out what my message was and really decide do I want to know that much about what am I risking versus what am I getting for doing that and, and but now in this kind of phase in my career after I've settled down a little bit, I really was that, you know, I really start to understand like people like Warren Buffett, who says the number one secret is to delight the customer. That is such a simple thing, but there's so much to it because my ego gets in my way. If my ego gets in my way, and I can do what they say, cut off your nose to spite your face. It's kind of like where I'm the one I'm my own worst enemy. So like, like for example, if I'm creating content, a good practical example would be if I'm creating content, somebody leaves a negative message and then I get nasty in the comments back to that person, or get passive aggressive or feel that I need to go in and make that person look dumb by leaving a more meaningful way in it's like that just that's not delighting the customer that's letting my ego kind of get in the way and it's taken a long time for me to run that. How are you with your background in the medical field as well as the mayor? How are you navigating? You know, kind of bringing a message out to potable water. You're not really in the safety of a medical office, where everything's confidential, you're kind of being yourself out there. There's other people putting themselves out there. How is this different and how are you dealing with it?

Stephanie:  Well, like you said, you know, there are the people with their negative comments and things so that is, that is a little challenging. I think I find the best thing to do with some of those with the negativity just kind of, you know, try to answer it the best you can or something nice to say just kind of you know, let it die. Just kind of, but yeah, just trying to reach out the best I can but some people just want to be negative. Unfortunately, you find that anywhere. When taking care of people in the medical field. Sometimes they just but then just like listening, listening is a real key that I find well, just try and get to the root of the problem and just, you know, explore different avenues might be upsetting them or this and that. And I've done that with my DMs I guess to just try to see where they're coming from and like, you know, what, what are you worried about? or worried about the legitimacy of stuff and I'm like, hey, check me out. I've got a Facebook group. I've got this and that, you know, don't be afraid, you know, I will answer whatever questions I'm being transparent about. Whatever, whatever you want to know.

Dave:  Yeah. And in what I hear you saying and kind of what I sense from your energy, is that it you know, you've from your experience in the military and in the medical field. What I would assume has been really valuable is learning how to temper your emotions, and stay present and not take things personal. You know, a patient for example, I can only imagine some of the things that you've experienced with patience. And so you've got a skill that you've developed to deal with people on many different emotional levels and what I'm hearing you describe is how you're now applying that here and when somebody lashes out maybe with anger, which is probably just fear, you're kind of coming back not throwing something mean back at them or whatever, but saying, Hey, what's going on? I'm sorry, you feel that way? Or kind of trying to soften the situation a little bit. Is that what I'm hearing?

Stephanie:  Right, exactly. And mean? Yeah, that's really the main thing. It's not like a problem with you. It's like maybe a problem with like, past maybe for example, gurus of like people trying to say that they're trying to teach people different affiliate marketing things and they have 1000s of problems with that or you know, and then they're kind of a little jaded from that. So yeah, that's one thing that I get down to the bottom of and that's where that's coming from. 

Dave:  Well, I always say that we can use our experience from past jobs being parents to do all this stuff. In this business, because of the business of people in sort of building relationships, and just providing value, which is something that a lot of us are not used to because we're mechanical or we kind of look at jobs as like, I'm here to do the thing but not interact. With the people. And the challenge is, is that commerce business is all and I know we're all afraid that one day games or robots are going to take over all of our jobs, but it's just not possible. Because critical thinking we have brains that can't be replaced. Compassion can't be replaced, those things can't be replaced. And so you know, I just it's, it's, it's very, it's very interesting to me, because what I found is all of my past skills that I've developed in other areas or use, everything overlaps is the point that I'm trying to make and that's why I'm so big on resource development, no matter what it looks like for you, because it will spill over good half, spill over good quality, spill over the things that you love. That is your employer's job right now. They're useful. Don't you know, sometimes we get this like, I hate the job. I want to fight the boss and it's like, but how you do one thing is how you do everything. So in order to make a dignified transition into entrepreneurship, you have to make a deal and feel good about yourself. You have to make a dignified exit from your job. And I know we all love to fantasize about going into our boss and saying you're fired. And that's fine. You can do that. I just always say make sure you can live with it. You know what I mean? Anyways, I digress just a bit. So tell us what happened with your journey kind of going through some of the started

Stephanie:  Well, you know, just really the main thing is like eating, eating our own cooking, you know, whatever we teach we do. So I think that's, you know, a very important part of affiliate marketing itself. Just being able to stand behind your products and things and decade into day that was just amazing. It was just so much information. So it's just got to write it all down. You know, it gets me all excited. There's all sorts of stuff and like all possibilities, I'm like, Oh my gosh, like I can read a nursing book. I can take a nursing course too now, but it's so I can focus on the affiliate marketing part and promoting whatever, somebody else's product and get that down. Get all the relationships down, being able to apply what you've already done to this new skill set. And yeah, so that was really the big thing there. Learn how to get leads. Traffic first. 

Dave:  Great example of how a woman used an ad about nursing in the Facebook section of the affiliate marketing business blueprint. So make sure that you check that out, if you haven't already, because, you know, a lot of times we can speak if we're if I'm a construction worker, I can write an ad or I can speak to other construction workers and in really, really dial in you know, when in be very, very relatable when I talk to them. But what the interesting thing is, is that other people who hear it they say Well Would it apply me as an architect would it apply to me I'm a lawyer for people get great people in the in the Facebook funnel section of the affiliate marketing business blueprint, where a girl used an ad and she said attention nurses and she and she was talking specifically to nerve and shoot, she's standing in her scrubs. And she dropped a comment below and an ad. She ran it as an ad and instead of just trying to get the click, she was going for the engagement. And she said drop a comment below if you want me to send you information. And since we're full of a doctor, would this apply to me? I'm a plumber. Would this apply? Right? Oh, because it was just targeted and in a long time. feel excluded. They want to be included. You know what I mean? So it's a unique angle. I just want to mention that to make sure that you check it out because well, let me ask you, are you speaking at all to people in the medical field in your marketing or are you being general and not speaking specifically to people in the medical field? Do you talk at all about your experience or how do you relate that into this business? Or Or do you compartmentalize?

Stephanie:  I do a little bit of explanation like in my story. But kind of mainly kind of more broad like people that have been to college that have student debt. I find that to be a big pain point. I've heard a lot of people say things about you know, hey, I've got all these loans. And what do I do? I manage that. Yeah, but then those payments are pretty hefty sometimes. 

Dave:  yeah. Okay, so that's a huge thing that you see that you can make a connection with as you can. A lot of people can relate to that specific pain point is big time student debt. What about credit card debt do you talk about? Because I think that it's much again, it goes back to marketing being more effective when you talk to people's pains rather than when you try to talk about things and have because again, remember, you can have you know, I mean, I can have six packs or six pack. I can have a six pack, you know, whatever I can have, you know, all these other things. That's fine. I'm gonna sit right here. Cool. I'm gonna talk about that. But let me tell you if I get a toothache, My ass is in that dentist's chair. Right. So it's kind of like when we sell pleasure. It's not as powerful as if we sell reading of the pain. And you know, one of the things that I think legendary marketers talk about the resection of the business brands, and I go through sort of the history in that first section some of those legendary marketers, what they know is that sometimes people don't know how to also have to agitate them and get their face and if you can do it in a way that's not as like, Hey, here's your pain to make them feel shame. If you can kind of tell stories. You weave it in and right it's it's a it's a it's a magical formula that gets people to I think, I think the big thing that makes it all work is if you wrap the pain in your own story so they can identify with it, rather than trying to say you're wrong or you're bad, and here's why. I can fix you. Do you agree with that? It's really powerful when you make things inclusive, you know, and even if you look at all of the offers on the internet, they make it seem like you can join an exclusive secret society of gurus and it's like, the truth is people don't really want that. They want to look at America, like it is the birthplace of lots of different cultures and races. And religions. And guess what? It's the crown jewel of the planet because of that, and people want that inclusive feeling that everybody's not at a certain level and they're gonna walk in and be like this. You know, loser. How do you make people feel comfortable? How do you create a welcoming space in your community? Stephanie:anie and you mentioned a Facebook group. And so how do you work? How you make people feel welcome and a part of and comfortable to reach out or to join your Facebook group. And to take the next step?

Stephanie:  Yeah, well, I would say, you know, first off laying things

Dave:  That's going to be a safety thing.

Stephanie:  You know, no, hate speech, that kind of thing. And then great other roles before they go into the Facebook group. And, you know, like any of that, even this group, I think that just creates an aura of security with that. And then just being welcoming when people join, just kind of making it a post and welcoming them there. And, yeah, I'm just trying to still kind of get the hang of things and bounce in that with everything else. But yeah, just kind of being upfront. Yeah, saying it's gonna be a safe place and facilitating conversation that way. Yeah.

Dave:  What's your main things that you focus on in your in your, in your marketing in your content creation in terms of E? How are you coming up with ideas? How are you and what did the first few videos feel like or how are they different from the ones that you're doing now?

Stephanie:  Well, the first few were kind of uncomfortable. You know, they were like it's you're not really used to seeing yourself initially honestly, because like, oh, that's what I look like and that's kind of a little scary. Our own worst critic Chanel, so he just kind of

Dave:  Really are. Just when we're on video, you know, like an audience like an interview or a zoom or whatever. We're just looking at ourselves the whole time. We're not even looking at the other people. Let's just hope we're all and I was trying to explain that to my daughter yesterday. We were walking up to a little birthday party and she was like, you were a little late and she was like, I feel embarrassed. I was like, I know. I felt a lot embarrassed and it's weird because as an adult, I don't feel like that anymore. What I kind of realized was everybody else was, you know, feeling embarrassed or worried about themselves as well. You know, I realized everybody wasn't looking at me. So she was like, I think, you know, you try to talk and explain things like that to a six year old and at the end, she's kind of like, I still feel embarrassed. But I'm sorry. So you're not sure if they are uncomfortable. And how are those different from what's coming out of you now and onto the internet?

Stephanie:  Yeah, I think just I mean, repetition is key and consistency. is key. Just kind of any new skill you learn in life is just you kind of gotta keep doing it. Keep doing it to get more comfortable with it. Just like any new nursing skills, you know, you got to practice your IVs until you get on we got to practice all your spec in your bags and all communication you got to practice that. So just as I keep going along, it's easier and easier. You just gotta think everything is content, you know, like, hey, you know, at a theme park, let's do like the horizon of the rights, that's content or put some words on that or, you know, you're just walking along on your walk walking your dog. I've done that. That's content to throw some words on that and then the actual words I've. I've really learned that from all the education that I've gotten from, from the blueprints and everything because that's where that comes from, honestly. And then reaching out with your mentors and other people that you meet along the way in this amazing community. You know, that we bounce ideas off each other and figure out stuff that way. It's like hey, this really worked for me you want to do that? And yeah, repurposing the content being omnipresent on all the platforms and

Dave:  Speaking, you know, we titled this live show the real that got 42,000 views, as always supposed to happen, always gonna happen. It's not meat. This is just the big disclaimer, the Big Dave Sharpe disclaimer as you know. I actually hate massive results like on the first day or first try or whatever, because then you know, people's mind gets. It's like, it's like the expectation is set high. And then I think they're a failure like when it doesn't, you know, so, that's the disclaimer. Anyways, I still want to celebrate your success because you've taken all of the steps and done all of the work. And I would assume that the Facebook world 42,000 On the first one was after you had already been creating content on tick tock, but tell us what happened. That's right. Yeah. My guess is that what happened? Tell us how the 42,000 views on the first Facebook really came about?

Stephanie:  Yeah, for sure. Yeah. So I was, you know, concentrating on that solely. I even have a couple other tiktoks accounts. They weren't really taking as much in the first one I'm like, okay, so then I saw that we were having the Facebook real challenge in our Facebook group with Josh. So then I was just like, let's give that a try. Because I didn't. Yeah, I was just like, well, let's just make a whole new account because I mean, I've just had so many I don't know. I mean, I know sometimes people use their original one but just like with all notifications being much personal and business.

Dave:  Well, you probably have nursing friends and all that over there. Right. So it totally makes sense. So you bring in a new account.

Stephanie:  Yeah, and just made it a personal one. And then I'm like, Oh, let's see how many views I give this one. You know, it's kind of getting a little exciting. So then I was just like, repurposing my content from the other ones. like, Ooh, hey, look at that one. And Facebook kind of throws you a little bit like, oh my gosh, I've only got like 100 views and you look on the next day, it's got like, 600 and then it's got oh my gosh, we've got all these comments on the spirit. First one, wow. What is going on here? It's just kind of like a whole new wild adventure and it's and it just kept going. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, it still kind of comes on now. Now, it's like a few months ago. So

Dave:  You never know. Never know. You could get such excitement from a business. Right? It's like, you know, I don't know how often you said that in your nursing career. I thought I would assume there were more noises like, oh, but you have more stories from there than I do. Well, we won't ask you about them because of confidentiality.

Stephanie:  Want to read the book? Yeah, there you go.

Dave:  And of course, just us, you know, what are they like? Just make names for everybody, you know, and so you can tell the stories.

Stephanie:  There you go. Well, I

Dave:  think that your internet marketing career is probably going to be just or more interesting as you're, of course, I haven't heard much about your your military time but I think that the internet marketing, lifestyle gives you an opportunity to not just have experiences in work, which are fun and which are cool, but also the freedom to go and have experiences elsewhere. You know, so what are some of the things that you want to do where you now see yourself doing here, either now or in the near future that you would not have been able to do? Had you started to create another source of income that was entrepreneurial meaning it was unlimited, you really have no, there's no cap? There's no ceiling, you don't have to ask for a raise. You just can take one whenever you want one or whenever you're willing to give yourself one. So what are some of the things that you have planned you're excited about you're planning now that would not have been possible before?

Stephanie:  Um, like I was saying It's learning about the core four with, you know, doing your own courses, your own whatever, writing a book, those kinds of things that were inspired by this course. Because that brought that up Yeah, but and just maintaining consistency because I mean, you just that that really is the magic thing is just post and it's not going to keep getting your your videos out and then nobody's gonna say get new followers or engagement and just really two to three a day for whatever platform and repurposing and even reposting I've reposted because I've learned that from different Joe's in the past that you get success from reposting and reposting your popular ones that was a popular one that I reposted from our first one for Facebook reels. And that's how we have some more successful

Dave:  We have a question . It is a good question. Did you create the Facebook reel on Facebook or was it a repurpose video from Tik Tok? So this one when you know viral initially was just a simple repurpose of a tic toc video? Yeah, that's all it was.

Stephanie:  That's how I made it made it more exciting to him like wow, I didn't even know that when new.

Dave:  Well, it's amazing. I've I've This is one of the concepts that I have you to to let's continue to be true. And that is that really these days your your your your if you're a business and you have an online presence in a way you have to look at yourself like a media company. Because so much of our business is just simply very based on creating content. It's like the whole world is in the content business now. And you know, there's a lot of experts and professionals and people who are resistant to that, and that's fine. I mean, it's kind of like how Warren Buffett often says I want to figure out which way the tide is going and swim with it. Then trying to swim against it. So somebody who comes from your world, which is mainly medical, but also is military. What is it like for you now to be in a digital way at Digital? You're a digital content creator, how is that for you and how are you okay with that or is that exciting? To you? Did you ever see that coming?

Stephanie:  I don't think I saw that coming honestly. Yeah, for sure. I mean, I have my other favorite influencers that I would watch. I mean, they're not and they're actually affiliate marketers in a way you know that there's sneaky little offers hidden in there. Like I didn't even see that before. You right?

Dave:  Yeah, where's the disclosure here?

Stephanie:  Had to hide somewhere but I didn't read it because that's what we do. But it's there. So I'm like, Wow, my eyes are just open to just what is going on here. That is so cool. Yes, the possibilities are endless. I mean, one of my favorite influencers has soaps that she likes you know, but I know I know. So are lotions potions and powders and those aren't always as big but she's like a big influencer so for her you know it could she could get a whole bunch in like one video so for without

Dave:  a doubt and yeah mainly i The lotions, potions and pills, things are mainly for you know, MLMs you know, which can be which can be which are a whole nother conversation honestly. Yeah, I have absolutely zero issue with being an affiliate for a physical product. It's the manufacturing and the creating and the shipping if you own the product, or an affiliate in somebody else is, if you're just sending traffic and they're doing all the making of the product, the shipping. Look, I'm just trying to make it easy for everybody. You know, that's all this is about. It's about ease of getting into the business and ease of operating the business in actually higher profit margins. I feel like the core four is like the Wall Street of our economy. Because the Wall Street is a play Wall Street is a place where you can sort of bend reality and make profits that don't make sense. You know what I mean? Like it's just how are these people making all this money? It's because it's because they literally bend reality on Wall Street. I mean money and compound interest in managing people's money. When you tell you no and then you get too big that you can't fail. So the government comes in and bails you out. It's crazy. The core four is kind of like bending reality. It's like the business model. That's always been reality. For the average person. There is no other business model that you can get into. And you can make unlimited upside. When, with the low headaches that you have. With everything being digital and handling, manufacturing and shipping zero supply chain check channel and you don't have to have a rah rah supporting team I mean m&m challenge, you don't have to. You don't have to go to rah rah events. You don't have to take three way calls. You don't have to do home and hotel meetings. There's none of that stuff. You can just be in your underwear the entire time. Put on a shirt. But if you wanted to just not actually get dressed, you could operate this business that way. Can be a double edged sword too. Because you could go for days without a showe What else can we learn from your journey? That would be valuable. What else would you like to say to folks before we let you get back to your busy life? Your life is busier than my life. I want to make sure that I honor your time. So what else could we learn from what else do you want to share with us Stephanie:anie?

Stephanie:  Another thing that kind of opened my eyes to is that you know, some people are like, oh, you know, it's just saturated. You know, all of the body's promote this. Everybody's promoting that but it's just ticked off alone. There's a billion people there. There's a huge audience and I've also used that as a talking point with people in my messages as well. They're like, Oh, my gosh, you know, there's so many, many it's like, but it's like the grains of sand tour. There's just so much opportunity. They're such a big audience and yeah, and then and that's also another thing that really surprised me and my marketing is like, some of my success has come from like email for like, wow, where'd that come from? It's just so interesting. Just like the news. Just like a new science. You know, I'm used to all the nursing science and all physiology and things like that. But then the science of technology and affiliate marketing, it's like, wow, that's really interesting. Because yeah, a lot of times people don't buy up friends just you know, later on is when they kind of make a decision. That's how I was, I was just like, I wasn't looking for this. I'm just a little bit. I gotta figure this out more because I have to use my critical thinking. I had to lay everything out. I have to oversell them. Yeah, I'm gonna have

Dave:  I haven't joked with my wife because she's an analyzer. And there were some funny cartoons that were on some time when our six year old was like two, and it was like this little robot that was like, start analyzing and it's still a joke. I literally just sent it to her the other night, started analyzing because she's an analyzer, I got it and analyzed ourselves. Analyze into paralysis.

Stephanie:  Yeah, and that's one thing you don't want to do with your NCLEX nursing tests, because it's just like some people. That's a big thing I went over with some students. Don't read too much into the question about the information that is there. Go with that, you know, you can't be like, Oh, but what about you know, what if they have Sally that this and that no, we don't care about Sally. She's not in the question. You know, whatever the nursing question is, that is what you need to focus on.

Dave:  And that's, that's the big secret about this business. The big secret about investing is that it's simple. And the rest of the world has to overcomplicate it, so they can have a purpose so they can have a reason to charge you money. And that's what I learned. About, you know, Wall Street. The reason why they make money, I want you to understand this and anybody who wrote this is going to be a gift. If I would have gotten this early. I'd have even more money than I have now, early in my career, meaning if y'all understand this, now, you can start saving smart and investing intelligently, but I didn't really understand how to invest money, you know, because the, the the, you know, the the Marketplace makes it complicated. They they make it they make you think that you're too dumb. You know what I mean? Like you'll screw it up if you do it by yourself and you need some guy who's going to do it with you or for you they want they want you to be dumb, they, they want you to think you're dumb. So they can say give me your money and I'll charge you a percent of your 2% of your whole portfolio to manage to pick stocks. And the truth of the matter is you don't need them. To do that. You could just invest in index funds. Index Fund at Vanguard is a simple thing that when you buy it, it just invests evenly inside of the whole say s&p stock market or the entire American stock market. And it's the average you know, money managers cannot beat that. He can't beat it. It can't get you better returns in that simple it tracks the s&p 500 it just invests the money evenly across all the companies. well diversified. The Company Vanguard created it in the 70s and it was just you know, the bottom line is that Wall Street makes the money that they do managing people's money because people are not they don't just go do the reading themselves to learn about the simple little financial tools that are available to all of us. Any one of us can invest in an index fund. I'm sure this is not financial advice. I'm just giving you an example based on my personal experience, but any one of us has access to those financial tools. index funds over at Vanguard every single one of us, even though it's basically the same thing. Any one of us has access to any one of those financial tools but the money managers don't want us to know that we couldn't make money same thing in all of life. There's always somebody who's going to try to make it more complex than it needs to be. That's how they somehow pay for themselves. When the truth is, is that it's simple. There, there really is no secrets. There's basic mechanics to tell like when you are doing construction work, you need to understand how to operate a hammer, a drill a circular saw in a saws so you don't kill yourself. And you need to understand how to read blueprints, but the rest is working with people in basic emotional intelligence and common sense and critical thinking skills. Absolutely. And in any time that we get sucked into somebody who tries to overcomplicate it or tell us that there's something wrong with us and we the meme or whatever. That's why I'm so against people who abuse power and so against people who try to create dependent entrepreneurs, legendary is pinboard. Legendary is not just we have entrepreneurs who start here and they spring out into the marketplace. And they go do all kinds of amazing things. Right? But that's because that's what's possible. what's possible when we keep it simple, and we just execute the same way that investing is simple to what you know, people get into, you know, one of the big side hustles over the last couple of years has been day trading, you know, coming day trade cutting trade crypto, and it's like people think that that's all making money has to be that complicated. All these other things out here are not good enough. So I need to go day trade. And that's the stupidest. That's the stupidest thing you could do. Because the chances of you making money as a day trader are as good as the chances of you making money to add a slot machine in Las Vegas. Long term might make a buck here and a buck there. But let's be honest, not a single billionaire made money because he sat there and traded back and forth. It's not about timing the market folks. It's about time in the market. This business is the same way. It's about consistency and playing the long game and doing what you're doing. Stephanie so I commend you and I think it's a wonderful example. Of not only these transferable skills that you can transfer to existing careers into this. But then of course, you can transfer these skills into other places as well, specifically from affiliate marketing to sounds like you want to potentially create some courses coaching or events for other nurses.

Dave:  Yeah. Yeah, it's, it's difficult. Even sometimes I've heard those stories of people feeling like that in a traditional university. I think that's changing, but it is certainly nice when we can find somewhere that is more inclusive than a lot of universities which are exclusive. Right. Right. And we can, you know, become a part of and learn some credible skills. So thanks for pointing that out. And yeah, we'll talk to you really soon.
