In episode 7 of PWTA, we discuss how we avoid the dreaded information overload and what resources we trust to get our news and entertainment. 

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to Products Worth Talking About, I’m RT. This is Tyler. Today we’re talking about entrepreneur news, all the different media that we can consume what we listened to, what we watch, all that kind of good stuff. So why are we doing it? Well, um, we’re busy, right? And I know you hate that word. This is the word. We should just remove it. We have a jam packed schedule full of all kinds of entrepreneurial things. I’m including this and our businesses, but I still want to know what’s going on in the world.

Tyler: Yeah. And I do it because, so I want to talk about this because I was an addict. Like I consume so much information. Right? Right. Like I got out of, I sold a business and I’m like, okay, I’m just going to go into this new business, e-commerce, I’m gonna learn everything about it. And then a year later, I’m the consuming so much information still. And I had to cut myself off. Right. Well I have a system for my information.

RT: Exactly. And it could be overload and it could be just, I mean, you know, we started this, you want to make everything perfect, right. And that’s kind of your thing. So it’s like learn everything about it and then do it. And I, I was kind of the opposite for a long time and I’ve been just heads down building Vortec and grow and companies and stuff. And I just, I, I didn’t watch TV. I didn’t look at anything. I didn’t read the newspaper. I had no idea what was going on in the world. And when people are like, you know, Hey did you catch the game last weekend? And I was like, sports ball, what the heck are you talking about? Yeah. And words ball. And so like, you know, kind of the opposite take on that is I think it’s healthy to be somewhere in the middle because as an entrepreneur you have to know what’s going on in the world around you. Otherwise you can’t react to the changing environment. So yeah.

Tyler: And then you have people, entrepreneurs who say they spend like 30 to 40% of their time reading, you know Warren Buffett’s and Torres for that. Like he gets up in the morning late at 6:00 AM, starts reading till like nine every day.

RT: And just seeing those posts on Instagram stresses me out cause I’m like, is that what I should be doing? I don’t, I don’t have, I, I want to say I don’t have time for that. I guess I could make time for that. That stressed me out.

Tyler: I think if you have a, a filter or a system for information, it’s one thing. Right? Right. So like there are people who consume stuff just to consume it and there’s no nothing being gained from it, you know, because it’s just, they take it in, that’s a cool idea. And you go down a rabbit hole and nothing really happens. Right. You know? So I think Warren Buffett probably has a system, we obviously know he has a system, he’s worth like $50 billion. So he takes in information, uses what he needs and he’s often the next day.

RT: and he heads teams. You know, I think when you get to a certain level in business or entrepreneurship and you have executor’s and integrators that work for you or with you, like you can just kind of fire it. Like, Hey, I just learned this new thing. Uh, I learned about tic-tac we should be using that for our business. Yeah, you integrate or that works for me. Go figure it out. You know? And he could just probably fire off a text like that and then it’ll get done. You know, for us running small businesses and the hustle, it’s like Pat are we, I mean, how, how do we execute all that stuff?

Tyler: So do you Warren Buffett text he Ivo for sure.

RT: He texted me like slate for you. I don’t know, like, think about it like our parents write the text, first of all, the text on the iPhone is, is like that massive size. Right? Yeah. And then it’s like short sweet, like it’s probably the way my dad texts, you know, it’s, it’s okay. Very, yeah. Very to the point. Very transactional. Perfect. I’m just getting it done. Oh no, we’re.

Tyler: off in left field. Okay. So I, I adopted something called just in time learning where like if I need to figure something out, I’m going to go learn that specific thing and very, very specific. Right. And that’s all I’m gonna focus on. Cool. So outside of that, I just have a couple of resources that I rely on. Yeah.

RT: And for me, I mean, you introduced me to a, the hustle newsletter that we’re going to talk about. Um, but I, you know, I, I, I consume things mostly for fun and then when I hear a nugget, you know, write it down and hopefully come back to it. Yeah. It isn’t. It’s a lot of fun.

Tyler: So, okay. So let’s get into it. So a couple of things. So a couple, I guess, uh, resources we rely on. So we broke them up in the podcast, um, our newsletters, all that good stuff. So let’s start with podcasts first. So what’s your GoTo podcast?

RT: So first is building a StoryBrand by Don Miller. So good. Um, all based on his book that’s also called building a StoryBrand. But, um, the story brand podcast is amazing. He basically interviews authors of other books, um, and just like experts in different fields and they have phenomenal conversations. So that’s like my educational podcast. And then my for fun is Joe Rogan. Yeah. And Joe Rogan’s podcast, I think is the biggest podcast on the planet as far as downloads. Um, but it’s kind of, you know, it’s, it’s, I don’t want to say a chore, but like, you have to sign up for it. It’s like two hour episodes. Yeah. So it’s great entertainment. Um, but it’s, you can have on in the background as you’re doing something else.

Tyler: I’ve never talked to somebody for more than like two hours. Like he’s so good. Like it’s just Joe hanging, but he’s good at like carrying that conversation down. These rabbit raised his episode most [inaudible] and yeah, it would.

RT: besides them smoking weed and taking Tesla stock that I own. Yeah. Thanks for that. Um, it was awesome. Like he, that episode was phenomenal and he interviews people that don’t get interviewed often. A lot of comedians too, and that for that reason it’s hilarious. But anyway, those are my two. What are you talking about?

Tyler: Joe’s still, I like him for, for, uh, just chilling and watching. Um, Ed Mylett I think does a great job. Uh, he just does, he’s a really good interviewer. Um, I just like, he’s easy to listen to. Yeah. That’s something that it’s just, it takes time to really perfect your, your craft. But he’s done it. Um, he gets great people on, so I like him for my business mindset. Yeah. He interviews a lot of heavy hitters, right? Yeah. Brandon Bouchard and those kinds of people. Yeah, that’s pretty cool.

RT: So next is TV shows. Um, I have, I picked out a few for fun for a long time. It was game of Thrones that was just go to like in fully addicted. He doesn’t watch, didn’t watch any phones, you can’t do it weird. Um, and right now Lindsey and I are totally addicted to billions, um, which is on Showtime. And we had to buy Showtime just for this show. But our friend Chris harder mentioned it and, and thank you Chris. Cause it’s just like, it’s amazing. It’s basically about this, um, uh, like entrepreneur who’s building this massive finance company and it’s based on a true story and they make billions of dollars and live in New York city. And it’s just like, it’s so interesting since it’s a life that I’ve never seen or heard about. Not yet yet. Right. Yeah, exactly. Um, and then for business education, I just, I love shark tank. It’s probably cliche is what we do. Right. You know, products we were talking about. It’s, yeah. I, it’s a dream of mine to be on shark tank someday. I think it’d be so awesome. I just love it.

Tyler: Well, for me, for entertainment, you know what time of year it is right now. We’re filming this in September. What time of Tommy year is it? Right now? It’s sports ball year. Sports ball. Your baby football. So I’m a college football guy. I love college football. I love football in general. So NFL too. But college football. So that’s my jam right now. Um, business. Yeah man. The profit. I like shark tank, but it got a little, I’ve seen so many episodes and my own, this is what’s going to happen. This is what’s gonna happen. Like you just know. Yeah, I like the profit. Marcus Limonus does a great job. Um, I like how it goes in the businesses and like turns them around and like documents that process. I think the guy’s super cool. Um, so that’s my jam for business. I like American greed too on CNBC. It’s so weird because these people are like scam artists. I think it’s a fascinating show.

RT: Yeah. Well it’s cause they’re like entrepreneurs, right? They are like they’re not doing something very good for the world. No. But making mom like that.

Tyler: So how did you figure that out? Like this guy, like he’s still on crack and then he’s like a multibillionaire like it’s nuts.

RT: So it’s like what if you took that skill and put it kids like, you know, good doing something nice. Yeah. Good. So that’s my jam there. It’s interesting. Yeah. So next is, is our email newsletter and we both came with the same, like this was what inspired the entire episode. And that’s the hustle. And if you do not subscribe to the hustles daily newsletter, you’re missing out. And that’s, you know, going back to why we’re making this episode and why we’re talking about the news, they write about current events, mostly entrepreneurial things. Um, big business, small business stories you’ve never heard of. And I mean, one of the ones that, that stands out to me, one of the stories I probably two months ago, it was about the last remaining Hollywood video. Yeah. And they show it. Yeah. And it was like this whole background story. So it’d been blockbuster or Hollywood video. I don’t know. It’s the same, right? It’s like the law. It’s like how is it still in business? And they went in depth and they interviewed the like, it was so interesting and like, you know, inspirational like every day there’s some kind of really interesting story that like keeps you going from an entrepreneurial standpoint.

Tyler: It’s probably the only newsletter that I actually still after what, two years or it’s probably been two years. Like everyday. So look at it.

RT: No, I’ve seen, I mean since you turned me onto it, I’ve, I’ve read it basically every day. I think it comes out sometime mid morning, uh, for us here in Colorado and um, and I, I actually like save it and I read it at night. I’m like sitting in bed. It’s kind of my like, instead of reading a book, I’ll read that and, and you know, just go on the next day. But it’s, it’s fun.

Tyler: Yeah. And they’ve sucked me in cause I actually subscribe to trends and love the data we get from other episodes comes from trends. I mean the, the, so if they tell us we go out and research it, you know, so a lot of those trends, they come out and say, Hey, this is take a look at this we use. So hustle trends, they got it going on.

RT: Yeah. And I guess next is like physical things, right? So we were trying to think of what other things do we do, we read or consume that we can hold in our hands besides books. Books deserve like a whole side ribs. So yeah. Um, and for me it’s, it’s usually only when I travel, I don’t actually subscribe to anything that gets delivered to the house here. But, um, I pick up the wall street journal or the financial times. I know the financial times seems like, Aw, it’s boring. But like they are very, I’m very specific in the research they do and it’s really, I, I like stocks. I like the stock market. And so like learning about, um, things that get impacted, um, and stocks are get impacted by politics and all that stuff is really interesting.

Tyler: I had none. Right. I don’t know if I’ve, I mean magazines like you’re like, right, right. Like you’re not as smart, so come on. I just couldn’t think of anything. Like, I’ll occasionally pick up a newspaper. It’s just not my thing. Like, I don’t, I don’t know. It’s not, it’s not my thing anymore. Like,

RT: I feel like local news is really struggling. Like, you know, our local newspapers here just, I mean, it’s just, it’s not interesting because [inaudible] want to be fast company.

Tyler: Yeah. I still think they’re, they’re relevant. Uh, I just, I’m not going to say I know that if I subscribe to that and they get it every week or every month, I’m just not gonna read it. It’s going to sit there. If I’m traveling, I may read it, but probably not. I’d rather listen to a podcast.

RT: I just like to be that guy on an airplane. It’s like folding the news. Like, if you’re sitting next to me and making noise, you know, it’s like a hall in your face. Yeah. You’re that guy. I still really figuring out how to properly fold. If somebody could tell us how to properly fold a newspaper, that would be beneficial to fully creases. Right. But then it’s admin. It’s loud. It’s really loud. I don’t know. Um, last people on Instagram, who do you follow on Instagram besides Instagram models? [inaudible] right. You guys said that.

RT: Set that aside for a second. I had to think about it and say, yeah. So for me, you turned me onto Bob Manary. Who is the funniest, how do you describe it as a sports announcer? Sports ball announcer. He’s very sports sports announcer, mostly football announcer. He clearly, you know, talks about football a lot and he just makes fun of everyone. The best voice ever. It’s so good.

Tyler: He has the best voice and it makes you just laugh when you hear it.

RT: We need to get him to do all of our like intros for this and everything we do.

Tyler: Yeah. He’s a Buffalo wild wings guy too. So like you hear them on the radio now it’s even better. So if you’ve heard that voice, that’s it. And that’s Bob. It’s hilarious. And then the rock, the rock like following the rock and Instagram is just like daily dose of inspiration.

RT: You know him getting on his private jet, him eating sushi, that’s like the whole table worth of sushi like the rock is, it’s just an amazing human. So I wanted to know everything. He’s doing everything. Yeah, he’s a great dude.

Tyler: So I struggled with this because I feel like Instagram at this point, my Instagram is just so full of entrepreneurs doing the same thing and like the same. It was kinda hard for me cause I didn’t want to recommend somebody that I was like, God, it’s the same thing. The do’s javelin, Lamborghini’s like you can be rich like me if you just do this and blah blah, blah. Then you do that and like unfollowing you immediately maybe shoot me or you drive, you’re gone. Um, I don’t care. Yeah. So anyway, it was kind of hard for me. But I go back to Gary V and this is the reason because the guys has been around for so long and I despise him the first time that I saw him, cause he’s like hustle also. And this was back in 2005 ish, probably hustle, hustle, hustle. Like he was nuts. He was all jacked up and crazy and I just didn’t, yeah, it didn’t work for me. But he’s, he just got better as he’s age. Oh yeah. Cause you know, he’s, I think he’s, he’s my age by 37 and he’s just got more mature and he just has a great message in, it’s all the time, every day. And he just delivers.

RT: And I like how he just kind of films everyday interactions and puts them on the internet and, and he does actually like in an everyday interaction, he provides very actionable feedback to the person who’s talking to, especially young people that he’s trying to advise. And I think, yeah, I commend him for that. Yeah.

Tyler: There was a time when he was better than everybody else and now he like comes down and just like works with you.

RT: Yeah. He’s like, how can I serve? How can I help? Yeah. You know, but still in his like over the top way, which is, yeah.

Tyler: And I still like on that note, Rachel and Dave Hollis, I mean, they do a good job because they’re so transparent and they’re so great. It would just get turned on the camera. They don’t care what they look like. They don’t, I don’t know what kind of cars they drive or what their house looks like or whatever. And they just dropped that thing on with the kids and they’re just so transparent in Florence. So genuine and they just do their thing. Yeah. And their message doesn’t really resonate with me because it’s just not my demo. Right. Um, but I just love them as people. I think I could hang out with them and just have great conversation with.

RT: Yeah. And I’ve met Dave in real life and he is such a genuine human. Um, I mean it was, it was insane. It was like such an honor to make that man to watch. Yeah. It was the coolest thing. He’s a cool, cool dude. He’s so awesome.

Tyler: So that’s it, man. Those are the things we watch. We consume, uh, to get information as entrepreneurs. Uh, anything else? Any other thing you get from anywhere else?

RT: No, I think just like looping back in, you know, I think it would be good to note for like email newsletters, publications, something in your industry. You know, like for drinking, I subscribe to like watch time magazine and watch time magazine has like a daily newsletter and ho dinky is the big watch blog. So like whatever your industry is. For me it’s watches, you know, I don’t read it every day, but like it’s good to kind of keep up with what your competitors are doing through an outlet like that. Yeah. I would think.

Tyler: the other takeaway don’t over-consume I mean just from the person who is an addict, right? Like don’t over consume that information. Just if you need to know how to do something, go to YouTube, watch the expert or two experts and then take action. That’s the biggest thing. Just Tate act, take action. Don’t overthink it. Just do it.

RT: Yep. Yeah, I think that’s, that’s the best way to leave it. So, um, yeah. Next step, we’re going to do the outro.

Speaker 1: That’s a wrap. As always, subscribe on YouTube. Find a set of products. We’re talking about.com Instagram and Facebook. And if you have a disruptive product or idea, tell us about it. We’d love to hear about it. See you later. [inaudible]

RT: I feel like local news is really struggling. Like, you know, our local newspapers here just, I mean, it’s just, it’s not interesting because [inaudible] want to be fast company.

Tyler: Yeah. I still think they’re, they’re relevant. Uh, I just, I’m not going to say I know that if I subscribe to that and they get it every week or every month, I’m just not gonna read it. It’s going to sit there. If I’m traveling, I may read it, but probably not. I’d rather listen to a podcast.

RT: I just like to be that guy on an airplane. It’s like folding the news. Like, if you’re sitting next to me and making noise, you know, it’s like a hall in your face. Yeah. You’re that guy. I still really figuring out how to properly fold. If somebody could tell us how to properly fold a newspaper, that would be beneficial to fully creases. Right. But then it’s admin. It’s loud. It’s really loud. I don’t know. Um, last people on Instagram, who do you follow on Instagram besides Instagram models? [inaudible] right. You guys said that.

RT: Set that aside for a second. I had to think about it and say, yeah. So for me, you turned me onto Bob Manary. Who is the funniest, how do you describe it as a sports announcer? Sports ball announcer. He’s very sports sports announcer, mostly football announcer. He clearly, you know, talks about football a lot and he just makes fun of everyone. The best voice ever. It’s so good.

Tyler: He has the best voice and it makes you just laugh when you hear it.

RT: We need to get him to do all of our like intros for this and everything we do.

Tyler: Yeah. He’s a Buffalo wild wings guy too. So like you hear them on the radio now it’s even better. So if you’ve heard that voice, that’s it. And that’s Bob. It’s hilarious. And then the rock, the rock like following the rock and Instagram is just like daily dose of inspiration.

RT: You know him getting on his private jet, him eating sushi, that’s like the whole table worth of sushi like the rock is, it’s just an amazing human. So I wanted to know everything. He’s doing everything. Yeah, he’s a great dude.

Tyler: So I struggled with this because I feel like Instagram at this point, my Instagram is just so full of entrepreneurs doing the same thing and like the same. It was kinda hard for me cause I didn’t want to recommend somebody that I was like, God, it’s the same thing. The do’s javelin, Lamborghini’s like you can be rich like me if you just do this and blah blah, blah. Then you do that and like unfollowing you immediately maybe shoot me or you drive, you’re gone. Um, I don’t care. Yeah. So anyway, it was kind of hard for me. But I go back to Gary V and this is the reason because the guys has been around for so long and I despise him the first time that I saw him, cause he’s like hustle also. And this was back in 2005 ish, probably hustle, hustle, hustle. Like he was nuts. He was all jacked up and crazy and I just didn’t, yeah, it didn’t work for me. But he’s, he just got better as he’s age. Oh yeah. Cause you know, he’s, I think he’s, he’s my age by 37 and he’s just got more mature and he just has a great message in, it’s all the time, every day. And he just delivers.

RT: And I like how he just kind of films everyday interactions and puts them on the internet and, and he does actually like in an everyday interaction, he provides very actionable feedback to the person who’s talking to, especially young people that he’s trying to advise. And I think, yeah, I commend him for that. Yeah.

Tyler: There was a time when he was better than everybody else and now he like comes down and just like works with you.

RT: Yeah. He’s like, how can I serve? How can I help? Yeah. You know, but still in his like over the top way, which is, yeah.

Tyler: And I still like on that note, Rachel and Dave Hollis, I mean, they do a good job because they’re so transparent and they’re so great. It would just get turned on the camera. They don’t care what they look like. They don’t, I don’t know what kind of cars they drive or what their house looks like or whatever. And they just dropped that thing on with the kids and they’re just so transparent in Florence. So genuine and they just do their thing. Yeah. And their message doesn’t really resonate with me because it’s just not my demo. Right. Um, but I just love them as people. I think I could hang out with them and just have great conversation with.

RT: Yeah. And I’ve met Dave in real life and he is such a genuine human. Um, I mean it was, it was insane. It was like such an honor to make that man to watch. Yeah. It was the coolest thing. He’s a cool, cool dude. He’s so awesome.

Tyler: So that’s it, man. Those are the things we watch. We consume, uh, to get information as entrepreneurs. Uh, anything else? Any other thing you get from anywhere else?

RT: No, I think just like looping back in, you know, I think it would be good to note for like email newsletters, publications, something in your industry. You know, like for drinking, I subscribe to like watch time magazine and watch time magazine has like a daily newsletter and ho dinky is the big watch blog. So like whatever your industry is. For me it’s watches, you know, I don’t read it every day, but like it’s good to kind of keep up with what your competitors are doing through an outlet like that. Yeah. I would think.

Tyler: the other takeaway don’t over-consume I mean just from the person who is an addict, right? Like don’t over consume that information. Just if you need to know how to do something, go to YouTube, watch the expert or two experts and then take action. That’s the biggest thing. Just Tate act, take action. Don’t overthink it. Just do it.

RT: Yep. Yeah, I think that’s, that’s the best way to leave it. So, um, yeah. Next step, we’re going to do the outro.
