Email from Alberto from Granada who is transcribing episodes for us
I saw recently a British TV drama called “The Fall”, starring Gillian Anderson, which is set in Northern Ireland. Don’t know if you’ve seen it, but I totally recommend it. I really loved the Northern Irish accent, you know, like every sentence is a question and the tone rises at the end. I found it very funny. Could you please ask Reza to do some Northern Irish accent for me, pleaseeee? I would really enjoy it!

Voice message from Jesus from Valencia about subtitles when watching films and TV series
Jesus is another AIRCoholic)
“I’ve been studying English my whole life” / “I’ve been taking it seriously since…./for the last year and a half.”
Pronunciation of ‘searched’ only ‘t’ and ‘d’ sounds for the ‘ed’ ending (started, landed, farted, painted, needed, decided, waited)
I watch A BUNCH of movies
Dependant XaboutX - ON

Mamen from Biescas
On my own / by myself / alone / lonely
‘On my own’ - when you do stuff without help - “I painted the flat on my own”, “I fixed my bike on my own.”
‘By myself’ usually describes a situation, not when you do something.  

Voice message from Miguel (Michael) who doesn’t have a dog. He has a baby and a cat.

English people are very ‘close moved’ or ‘separative’ (stand-offish, aloof, distant, remote, detached, impersonal, withdrawn, reserved, uncommunicative, unforthcoming, unapproachable, unfriendly, unsociable, cool, chilly, cold, haughty, disdainful, uninvolved, unresponsive, indifferent, unconcerned, introverted)
They guard their personal space.

Would you sit at a table that was already taken in a crowded bar or cafe if there were empty seats?

Which cultures need a lot of personal space?

Which nationalities don’t necessarily need a lot of personal space?

How important is body language when you are communicating?

Should you kiss an English woman when you are introduced to her for the first time?

How important is a handshake? - Should you get the upper hand?
TED Talk by Allan Pease: 

Documentary on body language: 

Do you kiss and hug men that you are close to?

What other cultural differences can you think of between the Spanish and the English?
- meal times and business hours
- siesta
- eating & drinking habits
- Christmas and New Year
- politeness & directness
- tutting (to say no) and hissing (to get someone’s attention)
- customer service

Q&A - Milky Way Selfie  

How do we know Milky Way's shape and take a picture of it from outside?

Hmm… that’s an interesting question.

We live on Earth, and Earth is a planet in the Solar System. It is circling the Sun, and our beloved Sun also goes around the center of this galaxy named the Milky Way.  This means we are inside the Milky Way. So.. how do we know the shape of our galaxy?

179 - Organizing Email & Calendars  

Google Calendar, Gmail, SaneBox, OH MY!

Today’s podcast is going to increase your productivity.  Once you implement what I share, you will get back HOURS and HOURS in every week of your life!

Sounds good, right?

I’ve wanted to share with you how I organize my Google Calendar and my Gmail for a couple of years. Specifically, I want to share with you how I manage to be SO efficient in everything I do with regards to calendar and email management…and how you can be, too!

But, I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to convey this to you. I thought about a podcast episode, a video series, or an online productivity course… then I came up with a plan which is kind of a mixture of all three.

In this week’s podcast episode, you’re going to get the audio tracks from a three-part video series that I created. Then, you can download the videos from the website link for FREE!

Google Calendar

I like to use Google Calendar and Gmail... they’re so universal and they have all the features that I want. They’re simple enough that you don’t need to use all the extra features to get the best out of them!

Using a Google Calendar effectively has increased my productivity in ways that I can’t even quantify.

Now that I have teenagers, Google Calendar has become a necessary part of our family. With integrated Google Calendars, the whole family is able to know what everyone is doing at the same time.

Gmail and SaneBox

I’ve done some really cool things with my Gmail that have increased my productivity! For example:

Multiple Inboxes – I’ve basically created a Sunday Basket in my Gmail! I have my regular inbox and then ‘slash folders’ underneath. SaneBox – I used to get my inbox to zero a few times a month, but now with Sanebox, I can get it to zero every single night! It is AMAZING!

So go and listen to this week’s podcast episode which is the audio version of my 3-part video series.

Then, sign up for the 3 part-video series by clicking here. The three videos will be delivered to you by email over 3 days and they're called:

How to Organize Your Google Calendar How to Organize Your Gmail How to Use SaneBox To Increase Your Productivity

I recommend that you listen first and then watch the videos.

I know that if you implement what I teach you, you will increase your productivity and get hours back in your week!

If you would like to try out SaneBox... and I really recommend that you do... go to and you'll get $25 off as well as a two week free trial!

Mary Elizabeth Winstead  

Mary Elizabeth Winstead just delivered a knockout performance as a femme fatale on this season of Fargo, but for many fans she’ll always be Ramona Flowers in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. As Leonard and Jessie discover, she doesn’t mind at all. She has a knack for choosing cool projects like 10 Cloverfield Lane and Swiss Army Man…and shares stories of her experiences on those films and working with the inimitable Quentin Tarantino.

Looking The Part - Soren and Daniel On Movie Scars and Tattoos  

Admit it: the Harry Potter movies would be totally different if he didn't have a cool scar. If Harry looked like Gary Oldman in 'Hannibal', Hermione and Ron be afraid to talk to him and even the Dementors would think twice before getting close to him. But Harry's scar is pencil-thin, and hides behind his hair. He's got a good-guy scar. And characters like Heath Ledger's Joker, Freddy Krueger and Scar? Obviously bad guys, right? 'The Lion King' wasn't even trying when they named their bad guy. Last week, in episode one of "Looking the Part," Soren Bowie and Daniel O'Brien analyzed what filmmakers were subtly telegraphing to audiences with characters' hair, mustaches and beards. This week the guys are joined by costume designer Jenna Wright to take a look at the skin, how scars and tattoos are used on good guys vs. bad guys, and the role costuming plays in developing a character.

Secret #13: How To Succeed When You Have No Resources  

Why having resources will actually hurt you as an entrepreneur and how to become more resourceful.

On today’s episode Russell comes to you from his favorite place on Earth, Pirates Cove. He gives a mini tour of the premises and talks about how he was able to afford the $100,000 that it took to rent it by being resourceful. Here are some of the cool things in this episode:

Find out how Russell was introduced to Pirates Cove and what he had to do to be able to afford to initially bring his family and friends there. Find out the difference between having resources and being resourceful. They sound similar, but they are not the same. And hear a rarely told story of how Russell was able to be resourceful early in his career to be able to afford to make his first idea come to fruition.

So listen up and enjoy as Russell talks about how he was able to be resourceful enough to be at Pirates Cove without spending a single penny.


Hey Everyone, this is Russell. I want to welcome you to the Marketing Secrets podcast happening today from Pirates Cove.

Alright everyone, if you’re watching the video of this, you can see I’m at the most ridiculous place on earth. If you’re listening to this, go to and actually watch the video. I’m right now at a place called Pirates Cove, at a mastermind group. It’s insane.

See behind me, these are my kids swinging on the ropes and having fun in the water and a bunch of other amazing things. This is pretty much the craziest place I’ve ever been. It’s my favorite place on earth. Some of the back story about Pirates Cove. Again, those of you watching can see some of the scenery of this place, but basically, the back story when my twins, which this is Bowen, one of my twins right here, when they were about 6 months old, we were speaking at an event here in Las Vegas, which is where Pirates Cove is at. One of my friends had come to this place and kind of told stories about how amazing it was. He started explaining, and no matter how cool he made it sound, you’re like, “That sounds cool.” He’s like, “No you guys, you have to see it. I’m going to take you and we’re going to try to find it.”

So we started driving around, all over Las Vegas, all over Boulder City, trying to find this place called Pirates Cove, and we couldn’t find it anywhere. So we gave up and went out to eat in Boulder City, and we’re sitting there and all the sudden the owner of Pirates Cove walked out and my buddy’s like, “That’s the owner.” So we walked up to him, “hey you don’t know us, but I’ve been to Pirates Cove, it would be super cool if you could let us see it.” The guy was so cool and was like, “come on up.” And he gave us swimming suits and we swam the entire day. Like I said, Bowen here was only 6 months old, he was in diapers, we had the most amazing time ever.

And if you see this place, it’s basically on the side of this mountain, it’s a private residence, there’s 5 houses on it, there’s waterslides, in fact, I’ll take you guys up on the video so you can see the top. There’s a kid waterslide and a really cool kid pool, and then up at the top there is this huge waterslide that’s for adults, that is crazy. You go down this huge slide and then it enters into the middle of the part, there’s a huge boat, and a pirate mast, you actually jump off it. In fact, on Funnel Hacker TV you can see some video of me jumping off it. It’s pretty crazy.

So I’ll keep showing you as I’m walking around. I want to teach you guys a really cool lesson. So after we came I was like, “I want to rent this.” I want to take my family here and show everybody. So the next year we called the guy up and we were like, “We want to rent Pirates Cove, how much would that cost.” And he was like, “Oh it’s $10,000 a day with a weeklong minimum.” It was $70 or 80 thousand dollars. I was like, what? I didn’t have that kind of money at the time. I was like, “gah. But I really want to rent pirates cove, there’s gotta be a way I can rent this and show my family and my kids and experience this again.”

So the wheels in my head started spinning. And again, this comes down to Robert Kiyosaki 101. Poor people say, “I can’t afford that.” Rich people think, “How can I afford that? What can I do to be able to afford that?” So I’m thinking what do I gotta do to make $70,000 to rent this place, but obviously catering and everything else. I was like for me to do that, it’s going to cost a lot of money. I’m going to need almost a hundred grand to do it. So I was like, okay what if I found a whole bunch of cool people and invited them to come to this thing and I sold tickets to it?

So that was the idea, so what we did is basically. We went and I put out a little page and said, “10 people pay $10,000, and that’s $100,000 and covers the cost of the entire mastermind group and then we can rent it. We’ll just have a really good time.” We’ll have for it half the week for all the mastermind and when the mastermind is over, we’ll still have it for 2 or 3 days at the end, then we’ll invite my family members, at the time a bunch of employees, things like that. And that was kind of the game plan. We did it and it worked and it was amazing.

So that was the first time I had a chance to experience Pirates Cove for a whole week. Since then we’ve done it, I think this is the fourth time we’ve done it. We did it 3 years in a row then we took off 4 or 5 years, because it’s a lot of work as well. And then this year we decided to do it again. So I’m here right now with 10 entrepreneurs and we’re just having the most amazing mastermind meetings during the day when it’s 116 degrees out here. Then at night we’re playing and having fun. Our kids are here and it’s insanely cool. So that’s happening right now at Pirates Cove. Again, if you want to see some visuals of this place, go to and watch the video.

But the lesson I want to tell you guys is this, and hopefully you kind of got a little piece of the lesson. It comes back to what Robert Kiyosaki said, poor people say, “I can’t afford that.” Where rich people think, “How can I afford that?” So I couldn’t afford this place, I couldn’t afford to rent it, but I wanted to experience it and I wanted other people to experience it. So I had to starts thinking outside the box. What do I need to do to be able to afford that? How do I get other people to help chip in so we can actually experience this and make it an amazing thing?

In fact, a lot of my early joint venture partnerships came from people I invited to Pirates Cove. I say, you take someone to Pirates Cove, they think you’re pretty cool afterwards, which helped. I was trying to build relationships and grow companies and things like that. But for you, what I want you thinking about, a lot of times, as an entrepreneur, I’m not telling you to go rent Pirates Cove and do something crazy like that. But a lot of times the reason why entrepreneurs aren’t successful in business is because they have this weird resource problem. “Ah, Russell I don’t have the resources, the time, the talents.” It’s all I have don’t the resources. You have to understand that entrepreneurship is not about having resources. That’s a fallacy, it’s incorrect.

Entrepreneurs are entrepreneurs not because they have resources, but because they’re resourceful. Sounds very similar, but it’s different. They’re resourceful.  I was resourceful, I had to think outside the box. How can I create this thing? A bunch of you guys have heard my rant many time about venture capitalists. I don’t feel real entrepreneurs take VC, because they’re coming in saying, “ I don’t have the resources, let me go ask somebody to give me money, then I’ll have resources to go and build something.” By definition you doing that, you’re not an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs are resourceful, they look at things and say, “how can I afford that?” They look at something and say, “I don’t have the resources, I have to be resourceful, I have to think of other ways to do it.”

But I know what I would do if I had the money I would create this thing.” And I pitched everyone on this thing. I was like, “The deal is, I’m broke. I have no resources, but I am very resourceful.
