  • I don't know if you've ever considered running or looked into politics, but with an entrepreneur frame of mind, it can be a frustrating space to be around, you know, because it doesn't make sense maybe to a business person, you know, the leaders bulletin and business, it's stuff you can see.

  • It's visual, the leaders bulletin in politics, it's not visual, it's a lot of proxy and that proxy is you have to be careful with because the proxies are this guy owes that guy in favor, that guy owes this guy a favor and you don't have any favors that oh you yet or you owe them yet.

  • So the people that owe them the least amount of favors they want that person to win the least.

  • It's a very, very interesting the world to be and specifically the one you're in.

  • But I, I applaud you, you know, today I was just having breakfast with Nick McKinley, I mean I'm sorry, lunch with Nick McKinley.

  • Nick McKinley is the real life Jack Ryan.

  • So if you know, if you've seen the movie Jack Ryan, they think wired or bar or vice did a video on him where he was a former CIA agent and he worked on all the crazy projects and amazon reached out to him to allow them to do the movie we're together.

  • He's been here in the office all morning long.

  • And we were talking and I said, so what direction do you think we're going right now with politics?

  • He says, I I think, you know, I like seeing more people who were former business owners who know what the market is really all about to run.

  • I think it keeps everybody honest.

  • We have too many people who don't know what real life is.

  • Real life business and the challenges you have to go do that.

  • What makes you a unique candidate is, Here's a guy that's willing to talk about his challenges and no one here's a guy that break dances.

  • Here's a guy that post the video boxing and kicking.

  • Like what is this guy doing?

  • What?

  • Well, what's he doing here is a guy that shows pictures with him and his kids.

  • Here's a guy that interview is the most weird random one day.

  • It's a bodybuilder.

  • One day, it's in Marine one day.

  • It's a social media influencer.

  • One day it's an entrepreneur.

  • One day it's a former criminal.

  • Where's he going with this?

  • But if there's one thing that's very obvious about you is your extremely detailed, you're extremely uh about doing your research when you're sitting down with somebody.

  • A great interviewer is not a great interviewer because they wing it.

  • A great interviewer is a great interviewer because before the interview, they spend hours researching the subject matter that they're sitting down would with me, Which means if you're going to run for mayor, I'm willing to bet you put hundreds of hours into that decision and the research and what things you would want to work on before you go run forward.

  • And you have to realize, I don't think there Audience fully realizes this.

  • You know, you anybody can not anybody, it's easy to go be a mayor of a city with 5000 people Go be a mayor of a city with, you know, 20,000 people, 50,000 people, 100,000 people.

  • I mean it's work.

  • But let's say London was the former financial capital of the world and new york city took it over.

  • So London is like Mayor Giuliani type of thing.

  • So if if London had its own set of Mayor Giuliani, London has got a very good opportunity to take that financial capital away from who took it over because we know what direction new york is going.

  • So my, my my presentation to the voters would also be, let's not forget just a few decades ago, who was the financial capital world and who took it over?

  • And let's not forget what direction new york is going right now, specifically with how they, you know, handle covid and on top of how they handle covid, how they're increasing taxes.

  • And now the taxes that are going to be increasing in states after biting introduced it yesterday and the Senate has to still vote for where they want to raise corporate taxes from 21 to 28 then they want to capital gains from 20 to 39.3.

  • We're in some states.

  • The Reuters article said today that new york's taxes top line could be 68.2, but let's just say it's a 60% number.

  • We're talking about, a lot of people are gonna be leaving new york just like they already have $400 billion of wealth has left new york the last 12 months.

  • This is articles that I think it was even a new york Times article.

  • The point I'm trying to make to you is, You know, being the mayor of London, going up against who you're going up against, the way they mismanaged a lot of the things the last 12 months.

  • I'm sure there are a lot of people that are probably rooting for you to win.

  • Mhm.

  • Yeah.

I don't know if you've ever considered running or looked into politics, but with an entrepreneur frame of mind, it can be a frustrating space to be around, you know, because it doesn't make sense maybe to a business person, you know, the leaders bulletin and business, it's stuff you can see.
