A Personal Message to Our Followers

Everyone has their vices.

They can go by many names and take many different forms but, when all is said and done, they’re the things in our lives that we can’t let go of, or that we have trouble keeping under control. I’m not talking about “guilty pleasures” that people talk about having, like a secret obsession with some sitcom that no one in a million years would guess that you’d like. I’m talking about actual habits or behaviors that, if left unchallenged, can actually be detrimental to your life and the lives surrounding you on a daily basis.

The alcoholic thinks that just one more drink will take the edge off, and that he’ll find peace at the bottom of the next bottle. The serial cheater tells himself that this time is truly the last time as he drives to the hotel for his late night meeting, while his wife and kids sleep at home. Perhaps your vices aren’t as extreme as an extra-marital affair, or an addiction to alcohol, though both are painfully common in our culture, but I’d wager that if you were to take some time for introspection that’d you’d likely find at least one habit or behavior that is inherently destructive to you, or those you love. It doesn’t even have to be a purely bad quality! It could be a good quality that you have a propensity to take to excess…

Recently, I canceled two weeks worth of streams for the podcast and announced to my friends on Twitter and Facebook that I would be taking the rest of July off to refocus on family. The podcast itself has been enjoying a fair amount of success and I’ve had a tremendous amount of interest from all kinds of people in being a part of what we’re creating. I had some fantastic guests lined up for July, and I hope to reconnect with them once I’ve discovered equilibrium again. I tell you all these things, not to brag about my pet project, but to share with you why a step back is necessary.

The simple truth is this… I have workaholic tendencies. It’s never flattering to admit your weakness, but it’s the truth, and it’s as much a part of me as the air I breathe. Not long ago, a counselor told me that I have a mild case of OCPD, which is essentially a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It’s actually fairly common in men, and often manifests in a preoccupation with work, or a need for perfectionism. This actually plays right into my personality type, as denoted by Myers-Briggs, as an “Architect”. The truth is I love to build things. Not physical things, mind you, because I’m not super handy, but I love to build ideas, concepts, brands, etc. I love creating things which are my very own, and I’m very particular how those things are built. After the foundations have been established, I usually encounter some modicum of success as others coalesce around the idea/brand, and want to be a part of things.

Success is as intoxicating to me as alcohol is to the alcoholic. I constantly want more. I start seizing opportunities left and right. If I had my way, my schedule would be solid with appointments, streams, networking meetings inked in every blank space. That’s my tendency. It’s my vice. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with working hard, however, when work becomes your god there are always casualties.

As successful as I could potentially be, no amount of success would be worthwhile if the casualties included my wife and children. The families are always the first victims of a workaholic’s frenzied obsession. It begins with a “few extra things” here and there, and a spouse who’s looking to be supportive of your vision, to ignoring your children at breakfast to keep up with Twitter contacts, scheduling multiple streams a night and not spending time with your wife, and constantly being attached to a screen. I am incredibly blessed to have a wife who won’t just passively indulge my vices, but instead will put her foot down for the good of everyone in the family.

My drive to be successful is born out of a desire to give my family everything in the world, but if they lose their father in the process would it be worth it?

Talking to my girls, seeing their faces light up when you engage them in, what to you may seem superfluous play, but to them is the most serious business in the world, suggests otherwise. I caution my friends in the political sphere constantly, admonishing them not to become that which they hate most, but that advice is universal in application. I don’t work to be free of the daily grind, simply to become chained to another grind. I need to always refocus on what matters most in life, because this life is all my wife and I have, and my children are only going to be young once.

At the end of the day, no amount of success can outweigh the value of family, and I’m grateful that my wife reminds me of that when I’m immersed in my own little world.

So where do we go from here?

The podcast will be restructured to include four live streams a month, one a week. I may do extra appearances on my friends’ shows, or there might be an extra show for the longer months, but four shows a month is more than enough for a dad who works full time, takes care of two wonderful children, and still finds time to spend with his wife!

My co-host, Bryce, is also looking to create his very own segment on the YouTube channel to allow him some freedom to bring on his own guests!

If my situation changes, and the podcast gains more reach, or begins actually bringing in income, I can readjust the content schedule accordingly.

It’s my desire to create, not just content for content’s sake, but actual quality interviews and discussions out of respect for your time! I won’t be a slave to algorithms.

I want to thank you all for your support, and your understanding as we move into the next phase of The Resistance Podcast!

Remember to appreciate the ones who are right in front of you, no amount of subscribers or clicks on some digital platform will ever replace the memories you share with people in the non-virtual world!

Winning the Savings Game

Brian S. Thompson is an entrepreneur and a partner at Marketing Full Speed, Need New Biz, Milwaukee Bouncy House, Milwaukee Tree Care, Milwaukee Radon Mitigation, and North Central Radon Mitigation. 

The average American spends $1.20 for every $1.00 that they earn.  Think about that for one minute.  Let that sink in.  You mean the average American spends more money than they actually bring in? Yes.  Debt is at an all-time high in the United States and credit cards are not the only issue.  School loans and miscellaneous debt are up considerably over previous years statistical data.  Although this post may be about money, I don’t want to bore you with tons of frivolous statistics and mind-numbing debt to income numbers.  However, what I do want to do, is give you some practical knowledge on how you can start playing offense and quit playing defense with your current financial situation and your future.

As mentioned before, the average American spends $1.20 for every $1.00 that they earn.  In reality, Americans should be saving AT LEAST $.20 on every $1.00 earned.  Now I know what you are thinking…I live paycheck to paycheck, this is impossible, I have kids, a family, etc.  Believe me, I understand.  I have felt the same way too. Furthermore, I cannot deny that there are indeed people out there that definitely can’t afford to save 20% each month. However, I also know that there is a large group of people who could save 20% each month, if they checked their spending habits. I also know there is another large segment of the population that may not be able to save 20%, but they could save something…maybe 15%, 10% or even 5% is better than nothing at all.  With that being said, here is a very simple strategy that has helped me stay focused on my current and future goals, while not sacrificing too much fun and leisure. 

One should save at least 20% during each pay period.  Of that 20%, 10% should be allocated for the short term and 10% should be allocated for long-term savings.  Each pay period, 5% should go into a liquid savings account.  This is your emergency fund.  The tire blows on your car, an unexpected medical bill, etc. This money is not really savings at all but rather deferred spending dollars.  It should be liquid, so you have access to it whenever needed, and if it isn’t needed, you can move it to a different savings “bucket” or you can choose to treat yourself (for being disciplined in saving) at the end of the year and spend a portion of it on a new toy or a vacation.  This is the most important savings bucket, and if you don’t fill this one, don’t proceed to the others. 

This must come first. 

You can begin getting more aggressive on your other savings strategies when this emergency fund reaches 3-6 months’ worth of your current salary.  That way, if you unfortunately lose your job or you become temporarily injured or ill, you can continue to pay your bills without worry for at least 3 months. 

The second 5% allocated for short to mid-term goals should be dedicated to a riskier account, especially when you are young in age.  I like to look at 3-5 years down the road, know what I want, and invest this money with a strategy to get there.  Mutual funds and index funds are great candidates for this 5% as you can let your money work for you and get a relatively quick return, from an investment standpoint. This will only motivate you to want to save and invest even more down the road. 

The first savings area for long-term savings is only 3%.  This percentage is lower because with long-term investments, you can afford to take a little more risk since you have more time to recover.  Therefore, this 3% is traditionally your chips off the table money…your ace if you will.  A lot of folks use bonds in this category or even permanent cash value life insurance to help bridge the retirement gap with tax free dollars down the road.  Whatever you choose, it is important to keep this at right around 3% because you will get a better return elsewhere. 

Lastly, the final long-term savings plan should remain at right around 7%.  This is your IRA, your 401K, or any other retirement vehicle you may use to leverage the stock market and make serious returns over the long-term.  As aforementioned, you want a larger percentage dedicated to this savings vehicle because it will grow and compound the quickest over time.   

In summary, I hope this simple strategy helps you get serious about your savings and your financial goals.  Savings, especially long-term savings, is more important now than ever before.  With social security dwindling and fewer and fewer companies offering pensions, it’s imperative that you take hold of you present, and future, financial situation. 

Thank you, Josh, for having faith in me and allowing me to post on your website.  As always, keep grinding and stay saving!

Creating Value (Feat. Dave Munson)

“In 1999, while working as a volunteer English teacher near Mexico City, Munson discovered that he needed a sturdy bag to carry his books. He found a leather shop and asked the owner to make a bag he had designed. When he returned to the United States, he started receiving compliments on the bag. People wanted to know where they could get one.

Dave peddled the bags from the back of his car, then moved to Juarez, Mexico, and sold them there and in neighboring El Paso. Three years later Saddleback Leather Co. was born…”
