Show Notes

Talk to me:

What is Money Lab with Matt Giovanisci?

Matt Giovanisci and friends drop the gauntlet of truth about being self-employed, serial entrepreneurs. They're not "teaching" how to build a successful company. Instead, they run business challenges and experiments offering a transparent view of what it takes to make money online.

Matt: In this episode, we're talking
about the YouTube publishing challenge.

Is this something that I did?

I published 31 videos in a row on YouTube,
and I actually made some money doing it.

So we're going to talk
about that in this episode.

Oh, hello, and welcome to money lab.

The podcast we're back, baby.

That's how it works here.

All right.

So it's just me.

I don't have a guest on today and.

That's probably going to be
like that for a little bit.

Probably not going to
have a lot of guests.

I just don't feel like a scheduling cast.

If I'm being honest.

Because I don't have any
other speed here, but.

In this episode, as I mentioned
before, we're going to talk about

my YouTube publishing challenge.

I want to tell the story about
that challenge and how it went.

And all the juicy deets in between.

So.

What is, what was the challenge?

So I want to talk about
YouTube in general.

So.

Aye.

Obviously, if you know me and you
followed me for a long time, you know,

I have a website called swim university.

And.

I've I was looking for some sort of
like consistent content to put out.

Uh, for money labs specifically.

I know I'm saying so university, but
I'm actually talking about money lab.

And so to me, diversity.

We, you know, we put out blog
posts on a more consistent basis.

And when we're looking at.

Uh, YouTube.

We have a YouTube plaque because
we've been putting out tons

and tons of weekly videos.

On this from university channel
and it's grown because of it.

And it's at a complete SEO play for us.

And.

Honestly, it's been very rewarding
and it's actually really helped

our business because obviously
the blog gets a ton of visitors.

I think the last time.

Uh, in the last time I checked,
it was like 5 million visitors.

A year, which is awesome.

Right?

And that's 5 million pool owners
or hot tub owners specifically.

And so we know a lot of
our people are on YouTube.

I know YouTube has always been
something that I wanted to.

You really double down on for a very long
time, but creating consistent videos.

When you have to do a lot of research,
when you, you know, you can't just

do a reaction video, you can't, I
mean, you could, uh, or you could,

you know, be the biggest pool.

YouTube where there is, and just
clean people's pools and film with

your iPhone and then edit it down.

And it's just, it's a lot of work.

But it makes sense over there.

Right.

It makes sense that we do that.

It makes sense that we
put the time in for that.

Just the same way we do what
our blog posts now, money lab.

Is a little different, but I want
to share with you what happens

over at some universities.

So it's from university.

Uh, we have a couple of goals, but our
main goal is for them to buy our courses.

We have a course on pool care.

We have a course on hot tub care and
they're completely different audiences.

So we create videos for those people.

Now for an example in January of 2021.

And now this is between, or, sorry, not
January, 2021, but just in 20 20, 20.

In 2021 between January and September.

We had 62,483 new email subscribers
to our list, specifically pool owners.

Okay.

Now.

43,491 of them came from our websites.

There's just standard.

Google.

SCO.

Right through our blog posts.

3,873 subscribed from our YouTube channel.

Now you might be thinking, well,
that's a much lower number.

However.

We've only been pitching the email.

You know, subscribing to our email list.

In 2021.

So we have videos that are absolutely.

Massive.

Right.

And they're doing, uh, like they're,
they're not promoting this thing.

So this is new for us to
promote our email list.

So.

4,000 people is a lot of
people to come from YouTube.

Okay in.

And it's first year.

What's interesting though, when you
look at the conversion rates between

the people who subscribe on the
website and people who subscribe on

YouTube, It's basically the same.

It's about five and a half
percent conversion rate.

Which is nuts.

Now, when I say conversion rate, I
don't mean from viewers to subscribers.

I mean, those subscribers that we got.

Became customers.

So, what does that tell me
that tells me that the YouTube

audience is highly engaged.

Like they're taking the
time to watch your video.

They want your cheat sheet in
our case, it's a cheat sheet.

They're going to our website or
they're clicking the description.

And they're entering their email
address and they're buying our products

because they've watched us on YouTube.

Right.

Just like they read our blog posts.

So.

I'm thinking I got to tap into that right.

With, with money lab, but with money lab.

I thought let's, let's try to do,
you know, edited content or just,

you know, screen grabs, whatever.

I've tried that in the past,
didn't really work for me.

Uh, it was hard to come up
with ideas, to be honest.

And because of the way money
lab works, I'm constantly

working on different projects.

Like obviously I'm working
on a YouTube challenge.

This Mo you know, in October, this
month, I'm doing Facebook ads next month.

Who knows what I'm going to be doing.

I'm even recording this podcast.

That's a whole different project.

So I'm always doing different stuff
and I, I didn't know what I wanted to

do, but I wanted to publish content
on YouTube and tap into the same

sort of success we've seen with some
university, but over it, money lab.

And.

Something happened.

So.

I constantly bring this up to
staff who is, uh, my life partner,

my girlfriend, my future wife.

And I am constantly saying, like,
I wish I could just be on YouTube,

but I don't have a YouTube ID.

I don't have, what is the content?

What is money lab?

What am I going to do there?

And I never know what to do.

And she came up.

She said, you know what?

You should do.

You should do website
tear downs on YouTube.

I think people would find
that really interesting.

And I immediately scoffed at that idea.

I.

No, there's no, who's going
to sit there and watch me.

Do with like, uh, you know, Uh, reaction
a reaction video to, you know, a website.

Yeah, it's just.

I don't know.

I didn't see the, I didn't
see the value in it.

So I kind of ignored it.

But I thought it was like,
all right, it's an idea.

It's sitting there.

You know, I remembered it.

And.

I have a community called money lab pro.

Where there's a bunch of other.

Online entrepreneurs.

And I, I spent a lot of my time there
actually, cause I like to ask questions.

I like to help other people
and, uh, who are working on the

same things that I'm working on.

And so I, I, so every Friday we
do, what's called happy hour.

Uh, where we jump on a
zoom call for an hour.

And I had brought up
this idea to the group.

I think there was about 10
of us on the call that day.

And I said, you know, I really want to go
on YouTube, but I don't know if this is.

Steph had this idea and I kind of like
website tear downs, blah, blah, blah.

And I just watched everyone's face
go like, oh, that's interesting.

And it was like, oh, what do you mean?

It's interesting.

I'm like, why would you,
why would you watch that?

Well, it turns out it's like, well, I just
want to see what other people are doing.

It's like you're showcasing other sites.

And, you know, That's interesting.

I want to see you, you
know, I have a site.

I want to see what other people are doing.

I was like, all right.

That's an interesting idea.

Okay.

And then I was, and then, you know, I was
driving, driving up to the mountains with

staff and I, you know, I told her that.

You know, the community responded
really well to the idea.

And then I said, man, maybe
there is something to this

because what am I really doing?

I'm going on YouTube.

And I'm showcasing.

I know what I'm talking about, right.

By looking at somebody's website and
offering critiques on how to improve it.

Which I could do all day.

I can do that in my sleep.

I don't look at.

A lot of websites, but when
I do, I, I have stuff to say.

Because I, this, I mean, I've
been doing designing websites

for, I want to say 20 years now.

I know what am I?

38.

Yeah.

20 years.

It's just a long time and I, you
know, I've done it professionally.

I've worked for a company doing it.

I've done it for myself, obviously
a lot more than anything else.

I've done it for sites.

I've started and taken down.

Uh, I've built, you know, a social
network for dogs in my, in my career.

I've done a lot of sites and I have
a lot to say about them and, and.

So I, you know, I thought, okay,

Uh, you know, the process aside, let
me just try one and I put one up and

I'm like, okay, this was really easy.

I used a.

Uh, e-comm live.

To record everything, just like
I did the live videos for money

lab life, which was a whole nother
experiment, which we will talk about.

On a future episode.

And so I did the exact same thing,
but it was a little bit more, you

know, my first episode I put out

Was bad.

It was really bad because I, I,
so I had this like camera set up.

I have this, uh, Canon, uh, M 50, which
was a $600 DSLR camera that I bought.

It came with a stock lens,
whatever lenses on it.

I have this one little light
that I got for like a hundred

bucks on Amazon and I got it on a
tripod and it kind of acts as my.

Uh, As my webcam, because it kind
of sits directly above my monitor.

If you go on to.

If you go to money,
lab.co/youtube-challenge.

I have pictures of the setup.

So you can see that if
you want to see that.

Uh, if you're interested in this,
but I actually, I love it because

I, my monitors do have webcams
built into them, but they're bad.

They make B12.

The camera's I guess are fine.

They pick up what they need to pick up.

They make me look terrible.

Uh, and I just was like, okay,
like, I use them for talking to

friends on zoom and stuff, but.

I really wish I had like a high quality
webcam that was permanently set up.

I've tried all different things
where I've attached it to the desk.

And honestly, the best solution for me was
to just put on a tripod behind my desk.

So that way, if I, you know,
if I bang on the table, which I

just did, if you didn't hear that

You know, it doesn't shake the
camera because the camera's

not on or mounted to the desk.

It's slightly behind the desk.

And that's really been
the best setup for me.

And it's pointed directly
at me at all times.

The screens flipped out.

I could go on and on about the
technical tactical parts of

that, because since I'm a nerd,

But it actually acts as my webcam
and pugs right on my computer.

And it's always on, I have a
plugged in permanently to a

power outlet and it's always on.

So whenever I fire up zoom,
whenever I fire up bloom,

whenever I fire up, I'm live.

The camera just comes on
and it's a nice camera.

It's got a little bit
of Boca it's, you know,

Not a huge, crazy amount
of depth of field.

I think it's only like,
Like a 3.2 aperture.

But the wall behind me
is a little bit farming.

The guitars are clear in the, in the shot.

And then I have this like one accent
light behind me that I, you know, I just

press it with my foot and it turns on.

Anyway.

So the first one I did the
first video that I did, I.

Somebody submitted it.

So I put up a reform.

So I use this company called reform
for my, just to collect data.

It's like, instead of using Google
forms or Typeform, it's like a

cheaper version of type form.

That's a little bit just simpler
for even the user and for myself.

And I say, I sent an
email out, I think, or.

I sent an email.

I think I just tweeted it or something.

And I was like, Hey, if you want me
to do a website, tear down, you know,

throw your, throw your, uh, URL in here.

And I asked a couple of bits of
information, like, you know, how

many, how many, how much traffic
do you get that sort of thing.

So the first one that you can
watch on YouTube, It was rambly.

It was like 30 minutes.

It was rambly.

Uh, and, uh, People liked it, but my
friend who is not into this whatsoever,

like he does not have a website.

He's just like a friend who works
in a totally different industry.

Uh, he texted me and said,
Hey, I saw your YouTube video.

And I really like it.

I was like, okay, well, why.

Well, first of all, why
are you watching that?

It's doesn't you don't have a
website, but he's like, I don't know.

I just like you, you're
kind of entertaining.

And I liked watching it.

I was like, I, you know,
and this is a guy who.

He never says a Syria.

He never says a serious thing.

Like everything's a bit with him.

So I'm just surprised to hear this
like sincerity that he liked the video,

but then he gave some feedback, which
he does often with like, uh, grammar

mistakes that I made on Twitter.

He's the first to text me
and said like, oh fuck.

Well, knowing that you don't
know anything about grammar,

you're, you're a terrible writer.

But.

He had some critiques and they
were really good critiques.

Like, Hey, you know, you rambled.

And so I started the next video.

I decided to like clean it up, add
some scenes with, with E cam and

sort of like create, okay, what
am I constantly talking about?

I talk about.

Paid speed a lot.

I talk about SEO.

I talk about branding, a lot
color schemes, all that stuff.

So I devise this sort of like
a blueprint, this template.

For how I critique the video,
how I critique the websites.

Right.

So, so far.

I have.

This form.

To collect the submission.

So I don't have to come up with
a content or find websites.

They come to me.

Right.

Then I have a format where, and I'm using
it by the way, I'm using a stream deck.

To just hit buttons.

And doing it all on the fly.

So when you watch those videos on YouTube,
none of them were edited whatsoever.

Everything that you see on those videos
as me clicking buttons in real time.

And then I just, when I hit stop,

I The E cam just prompts me
and I just upload it directly

to YouTube, right from there.

And then.

I I'm basically done at that point
because my assistant takes over and she.

Adds the thumbnail.

She adds a description, you know, that we
have like a pre-written description that

she copies and paste over from a sauna.

You know, into YouTube,
she creates the end cards.

She schedules it for, for publishing it.

It was like the process.

Couldn't, couldn't be easier.

I literally have the website
at my disposal from reform.

I just pull up the next one in the queue.

I hit the record button.

I have a little timer that
I also hit at the same time.

That sets for 15 minutes.

And I just, I do my thing
and I move through it.

And a lot of times, I don't even look
at the website before I record, because

I want that sort of natural reaction
because I think it's entertaining.

So I have the, the format, right.

I have the setup of all the equipment.

That's just all ready to go.

The only thing I have to do is I
have to turn on the lights and, you

know, I always have my speakers on, I
always have my microphone plugged in.

Like my setup is my setup.

It's always here.

I had to click a few buttons
and I have to pull up reform and

I have to pull up e-comm live.

But once that's all up, Then
I can just bang out videos.

You know, I could do four videos in an
hour because they're 15 minutes piece.

That's great.

So.

I have the setup.

And then I have the, the process,
the process was super easy.

The process is.

I did.

I think I did the first three
or four, maybe even five videos.

Where I was sort of working out the kinks,
like what's the thumbnail gonna look like?

You know, Is it going to be me?

Is it going to be the.

The website that I'm critiquing.

Uh, do I want some sort of
branding on it for what it is?

All this stuff.

So I had to work a few things out,
you know, come up with what I was

writing in the description, come up
with the end card I wanted to use,

or the end screen I wanted to use.

How to put tags and just like basic SEO.

Publishing on YouTube stuff.

Right.

But everything I did, I
would, I would do it myself.

And then I would write down what I did.

And then I was able to film a loom video.

Teaching my assistant how to do it.

So I sent that to her and then
I sent the pre-written or I sent

whatever I wrote down as the process,
all of that is stored in a sauna.

So shit, if she ever needs it,
she can just go into a sauna

and pull those things up.

The descriptions there
it's all on the sauna.

And then whenever a new video is
uploaded, I just create a task in a

sauna for her, what the name of the
video, and then she can log into YouTube.

Uh, she's a team member within my
channel, which you can set up and

she can go in and do those things.

Right.

So the only other thing I've I did.

Was I implemented a promotion engine.

It's very, it's very simple.

All I do.

Is I have a zap set up that every
time a new video is published.

It automatically tweets it out.

It automatically puts it up
on my Facebook page and it

automatically puts it on LinkedIn.

And it's funny because I
was like, well, who cares?

Right.

As anybody.

It works on Twitter.

Uh, cause I, cause I have a
following there and a friend of

mine that I went to high school
with and it's still friends with.

He's V found the video on Twitter
or sorry, in the LinkedIn.

It was like, it didn't texted me about it.

So I'm like, okay, I guess it works.

And I guess people are
watching it on LinkedIn.

That's pretty cool.

It's not, it's not a native video.

It's just like a link
to the YouTube video.

But it's working now.

I don't send it out to my email
list because I don't want to be.

You know, when I was doing 31 videos.

In a row.

I didn't want to have to
send an email out every day.

Like new video, new video, I just did it.

You know, wants to promote it.

Maybe like, you know, as I, as
I was updating this challenge,

I would send those out.

So.

I'm going to fast forward
here because that's the setup.

And each time I did a
video, I changed something.

I improved something and what's great
about YouTube is there's comments, which

is not something you get on a podcast.

But the comments were like, Hey,
this, and I would talk to my community

and they would say, Hey, well,
you know, you need a better this.

Or I would sit there and, you
know, watch the video and say,

what can I do better here?

What, you know, And
the whole goal of this.

If, if.

If I go back to the beginning.

Right.

The the actual like challenge.

Was to publish 31 videos in a
row in the month of October.

And document the results and the revenue.

Because I wanted this
to actually make money.

Now, originally I ju I, you know,
I had ads turned on because I

have enough subscribers and I had
enough watch time to be able to.

Get a, what is it called?

Like, just be a part of the YouTube
advertising program or whatever.

And I had them turned
on for probably 20 days.

And then, you know, miles Beckler and,
uh, tweeted me and said like, why do

you have, why do you have ads turned on?

Because I had updated.

The list and said, like I had
made like $200 from ads in the

month, sort of bragging about it.

And he's like, why do
you have ads turned on?

Like what?

You're just going to have like
frigging fake gurus, like Ty Lopez.

You know, running ads in the front of
your content, like screw that noise.

You know, and I, and I, at first I
was like, yeah, but that's money.

I'm.

I'm throwing away and.

But.

Because I was doing a video every
day and I was, and I was kind of

like trying to get subscribers.

And that was sort of, not that I, not that
I use that metric as like a goal, but.

I am servicing an audience.

And I figured, well, there's
better ways to make money.

And even miles was like, there's better
ways to make money than advertising.

And it's like, it's just not.

So do your audience a
favor and take the ads off.

So that way they can watch your content.

Ad-free.

But, you know, you're
still promote something.

And at the time, at the beginning of
the videos, I had nothing to promote.

I had at first I was promoting
just affiliate links.

Right.

So I would just, if I mentioned, uh,
if I was looking at it, it was that.

If I was critiquing a website
and the website was slow.

I would say, you know, you
should install WP rocket.

And if you go to money,
lab.co/rocket, then.

You know, you can download.

You know, you download, I get
an affiliate code, whatever.

Right.

That's my affiliate link.

That's you can't measure that.

You know, you can't, uh, It's just
not a good system for revenue.

So I'm like, all right, I need
something a little bit more predictable,

a little bit more measurable.

Like how do I know that?

These YouTube videos
specifically are paying off.

And what we did on swimming university in
our first two years, when we were like,

when we started making consistent videos,
I've been on YouTube since 2011, but.

In the last, like from 20 19, 20 20.

Those two years where we were
producing a video every single week,

an animated video every single week.

We were offering a coupon code for our
course, which at the time was only $49.

So we were saying, Hey, you know,
use this coupon video and get.

I think it was like 10% off or
whatever the course and people

would use that coupon code.

And we could do, we could go into Podio,
which is what we use to sell our course

and we could pull up, okay, how many
people used the video coupon code?

Then we know that they
watched our video, but.

They could have watched it on
embedded on our website or they

could have watched it on YouTube.

So we really didn't know, but it
was the YouTube video that was

specifically resulting in those sales.

So we knew that.

In 2021, we switched to everything
because we set up a whole new

funnel system, which is going to
be another episode of this podcast.

We set up a whole nother system where
it made more sense for us to collect

leads from YouTube, as opposed to
just getting them to buy our product.

So we created a cheat sheet by
pool care cheat sheet, and I did

a whole bunch of testing to see
what worked and what didn't work.

I tried checklist.

I tried.

eBooks.

I try to video, I try to cheat sheet and a
cheat sheet just like convert at the best.

And I guess, you know, in hindsight
it makes sense why it would.

At least for me.

And again, we'll go into
that in different episode.

So.

For me, it was, I was like, okay.

You know, At first, I was like that.

You can see a couple of videos
if you go back and watch them.

Where I promote all of my courses.

So I have.

You know, for courses or, sorry.

I have five courses on
money lab that I sell.

And I have a WordPress theme,
so I put all those together.

And it was six, six products.

And I was like, Hey, if you use the
promo code video, you'll get 20% off.

Uh, whatever.

And.

It worked.

I had two people use the promo
code, but they bought carbonate,

which is my cheapest product.

And I was just like, well,
I'm not really giving anybody

a directive into what to buy.

And it just felt like.

It just felt very, like I was.

You know, Spraying as
opposed to target shooting.

You know, if I could, I can't
find a better analogy than that.

So I think it was probably
halfway through the challenge I

decided to Create a cheat sheet.

And I came up with this idea, cause
we were like, well, what's the,

what's something I could offer.

For free as a free downloadable
that in exchange for your email

address, like what's, what's
the easiest thing I can offer.

And also, I wanted to think
about something that aligned

with what I was doing.

So I was, you know, talking about.

You know, improving your website.

And so I thought, oh, okay.

Like I could create this cheat
sheet of all the things that I use.

To optimize my individual blog posts.

I was like that.

That's a great idea.

And then it was like perfect
post, you know, the perfect post.

Kind of alliteration showed up
in my head and I'm like, oh,

I'll, I'll, I'll run with that.

And so I sat down and
I, I think it took me.

An hour.

To make the cheat sheet because
I already had everything.

I mean, I've been doing it for
years and I had it all written down.

I just needed to design it.

So I designed it in Adobe XD.

As a PDF export at it.

Uh, and then created a lead page.

And.

There, there you go.

Aye.

Now all you had to do was subscribe.

And I sent you the cheat sheet.

So that was the first step.

Second step was.

Well, I needed a product to sell
after the download the cheat sheet.

And so I created a workshop.

Based on the cheat sheet where
I went in depth into individual

blog posts on some university,
the highest earning blog posts.

And showed how I optimized those using
the principles in the cheat sheet.

So it's an hour long workshop on
the practical side of actually

using the cheat sheet to create.

Posts that are highly ranked
and make a lot of money.

And I also added a bonus lesson
to that workshop about setting up.

Google analytics and other tools so that
you can find out how much a blog post is.

A blog post post is worth to you.

So.

All of this and I, and I, and for that,
that's a relatively inexpensive product.

So.

I set that up, like middle of
the challenge, maybe towards

the end of the challenge.

And I started promoting this cheat
sheet and check in all the videos

and people were subscribing.

Like, I think I got like three or 400
subscribers, which is pretty good.

And I know I have an existing
audience, but it's not that huge.

So all of these people were
mostly coming from YouTube.

Cause it's all really all I.

You know, I only had it on
YouTube now it's everywhere,

but that's where I started.

I ended up selling, uh, if we,
if we S if I scroll to the bottom

here, this post just to kind of
give you the numbers of everything.

So that, so in YouTube ads for that
month, I made only $202 and 56 cents.

And that's because.

One, you don't make shit with YouTube ads,
but also I turned off the YouTube ads.

You know, maybe three
quarters of the way through.

Uh, I had those two carbonate purchases,
those two WordPress team purchase

that I said that use the coupon code.

I made $126 and 40 cents from that.

But that workshop that I kind of, I
only want to say I threw it together,

but, uh, you know, I think I spent a day
putting it together and then filming it.

And, you know, obviously I could
film things pretty quickly.

Aye.

Made $936.

And that was huge.

And so I'm like, oh, okay, got the system.

So.

You so total, I made $1,264 and 96 cents.

And my assistant charged
me roughly 300 bucks.

So I did pretty good at like 900 bucks.

For that month.

Now, obviously I did a video every
single day, which is a lot of work, but

those videos now exist on the platform
and people are still subscribing and

people are still buying that workshop.

And then now it's my job to create
a deeper funnel where I could sell

my other products and create, uh,
and create more revenue for myself.

You know, once they subscribed and
that's up to me to do going forward.

And we can get into that, but.

Yeah.

I only gained 178 new subscribers,
but overall, because I was

just putting out content.

Consistently.

I just was, I was, I was
just around more often.

To my own audience.

And money lab saw a 15%
increase in overall revenue just

from, just from being there.

And I went and had a beer with my friend.

And he's like, dude, you're
blowing up my YouTube feed.

Cause you're just, you know,
you're publishing a video every

day and I didn't even think.

That, that would be sort of a
by-product of that, but it was, and so.

Yeah.

Did it revolutionize my business?

No.

When I do challenges, they're pretty
short term and they never really do.

But.

It has completely opened me up.

Into a new direction for money lab.

And that is why you're listening to
this podcast because the videos and

doing a consistent piece of content
and hearing the feedback from the

YouTube comments and on Twitter saying.

Bring the goddamn podcast back.

This is this just awakened, all of that.

And.

I love that it's streamlined.

I love that I can just
show up and be myself.

And be an expert in the thing that
I've studied 20 years of my life doing.

I could do this for pools too.

If I.

If I could go on.

I could do a podcast about pools and B.

You know, I could do
a, I could do a video.

I could do live videos
on Facebook, about pools.

I could do it on YouTube about pools.

It's the same thing I can do here.

I can do.

What about homebrewing to.

It's things that I'm into.

So that's the story.

Of this 31 day challenge it.

It is just ignited a.

Fire again, that I'm very excited about
because I really, I really liked doing it.

I thought, you know, 31 episodes
in a row, that's a lot of work.

It's a lot of episodes.

I had such a blast doing it.

And I think it's because I
could turn on the camera.

I was by myself.

I could do it whenever I
was in like a positive mood.

And I had a ton of caffeine in me
and I'm like, all right, let's do it.

You know, you can look at my apple watch.

Anytime I did a review.

Like I like.

It's like I'm working out, I
guess, like my heart's racing

or whatever's happening in.

And it was just like so much fun to do.

And I'm like, well, I, you know, if that,
and it was easy, I mean, I could do again

one hour and I had four days covered.

You know of work.

So, and I'm, and I'm not going
to do it daily going forward.

I think I'm just going to stick to.

You know, Uh, probably twice, maybe
three times a week, but all of a

sudden I'm like, all right, cool.

Let's do a podcast.

Let's do multiple podcasts.

Let's do multiple videos.

Let's do different shows on YouTube.

Uh, the sky's the limit and I'm just
going to point everybody to one place.

And that is.

My perfect post cheat sheet.

And that's what I'm doing right now.

You can download it.

If you go to money, lab.co/cheat sheet.

And I know that you're probably in the
car, you're probably going to treadmill.

But if you can open up your phone and
if you're driving, please don't do this.

But if you did you, did you guys
hear that, that you did hear that?

That was my 30 minute timer.

I don't know if I want that to play.

But you heard it.

Oh, also what's cool about the podcast.

Anyway, we'll start.

What was I saying?

I'm saying.

If you, if you're driving.

Or your, uh, on a treadmill or whatever,
and you could just like stop and just

write down or memorize money, lab.co/cheat
sheet and go home and download it.

You will.

People love it.

I've gotten all good feedback about it.

I'm very, very happy with it.

I'm planning on adding even more
stuff to it and making it a little

beefier, but like not telling
anybody, just kind of doing it.

You know And yeah.

Aye.

I'm I'm pumped.

Also, what's super cool about this
podcast too, is I'm doing it by myself.

Uh, for now, and I'm planning on
having some guests here and there,

but I want the guest here in my home
because I have a setup to do it.

It's much easier to do it here
than it is to schedule it on zoom.

It's to pain in my ass.

You know, schedule it on zoom.

I don't want to do that.

I just don't.

I want them here in studio and,
and thankfully there's a ton of

people around me that do this.

So, uh, there's definitely
people to talk about.

And now we can maybe start
traveling again, so maybe

people can fly in for this.

That would be cool.

Right.

Uh, so.

Money lab.co/cheat sheet.

And.

Yeah, the other thing I want to mention
just about this podcast really quick

before we, before I wrap it all up.

Uh, It's I kind of feel like I'm
doing some old school broadcasting

shit here because I have my little
stream deck and I can control things.

And so far I just have a timer.

And I have some theme music to play,
which I'll play on the way out.

But I'm going to have a lot more things.

There's going to be a lot more
stuff happening during this show.

Anyway.

Uh, I hope you like it.

I hope you found it.

If hope you liked the story.

He'll be like this episode.

And if you did, let's talk to each
other because I, I, you know, this whole

idea of podcasting into a vacuum sucks.

So if you could, I've put links
in the show notes where you can

contact me on Twitter and just
email me@mattatmoneylab.co.

All right.

Email me.

Tell me what you think, or if you
have any ideas for show topics or

things that you want to hear me talk
about, I will absolutely do them.

And I will put them out as episodes.

And that's the end of the show.

So appreciate it.

And I will see you guys next time.

Bye.

Bye.
