In this episode: The past perfect simple and continuous with special guest Mike Hardinge

What is the Past Perfect?

Use: The Past Perfect is the past before the past. When we are already talking about the past and we want to talk about an earlier past time.
It can be in a Simple or Continuous/Progressive form.

PAST PERFECT SIMPLE

Something that happened before another action in the past. It can also show that something happened before a specific time in the past.
Focus tends to be on the completion of the action/state, not the continuity of it.

Form: had/ ’d + past participle (had eaten, had been, had forgotten, had seen etc)

Let’s see where the past perfect simple fits in. To do this we have to look at a much more ‘important’ tense ‘the past simple’.
The past simple forms the basis of a narrative; it gives us a sequence of events:

Maybe last night
(1) you stayed up (didn’t go to bed) to watch a film and (2) went to bed too late. In the morning, (3) you didn’t hear your alarm.
(4) You woke up late. (5) You got dressed in an awful hurry, (6) didn’t have breakfast and (7) rushed out of the house.
Then (8) you realised you HAD FORGOTTEN your keys.


The verbs in the story have a ‘fixed’ order, except for ‘had forgotten’, which takes us back to before or during when (5) you got dressed - maybe you put on another jacket or before (7) you rushed out of the house - you didn’t check to see if you had your keys.

Past perfect simple usually takes us back to a previous stage of a narrative.

It is very useful for giving reasons:

You couldn’t get back into your house (why?) because you HAD FORGOTTEN your keys.
or obviously it could be a negative action, an action not taken, which is the case here:
you couldn’t get back into your house because you HADN'T TAKEN your keys.


If you had gone to bed at the right time, none of this would have happened.


Examples: When Mike arrived, we had already recorded a podcast
I’d never seen such an excellent system for learning phrasal verbs before I saw Mike’s CD.
After she’d studied Mike’s phrasal verb CD, she understood the subject much better.
We’d had our old printer for 8 years before we bought that new one. (two ‘hads’. “ ’d” = “had”)

Question:(different word order) Had you ever won an award before you won in Manchester last year?
Negative: (with NOT) I hadn’t/had not studied Spanish, before I came to Spain.

Reza arrived late. By the time he arrived, we had already ordered our food from the waiter.
As soon as he’d lit/he had lit his cigarette, the bus arrived at the stop.
No sooner had he lit (OBLIGATORY INVERSION) his cigarette than the bus arrived at the stop.
Reza and Craig spoke about INVERSION in episode 78 ( http://www.inglespodcast.com/2015/11/22/sentence-inversions-airc78/ )


PAST PERFECT CONTINUOUS

Use: Focus tends to be on the continuity of the activity/process. Something that started in the past and continued up to a particular time in the past.
Can be used for more temporary actions/situations or a repeated action or a longer action interrupted by another action. Often there’s evidence that the action had been continuing more or less up to point.

I HAD LIVED in Salamanca for two years before I came to Valencia. (use simple to stress the completed action)
I HAD BEEN LIVING in Salamanca for two years before I came to Valencia. (use continuous to stress the continuity of an action that may, or may not, be unfinished)

Present perfect simple: I HAVE READ fifteen books this year. (focus on the number of books completed)
Present perfect continuous: I'VE BEEN READING the last Harry Potter book and I can't understand a word. (focus on the continuous action)

Past perfect simple: Valencia HAD BEEN PLAYING very well before the new manager.
Past perfect continuous: Valencia HAD WON 15 games before the new manager.


Form: had/ ’d been + -ing form of the verb


Back to MIke's forgotten keys story. You can’t have a bare narrative with no description and maintain interest, so:

Last night....
(1) you stayed up (didn’t go to bed) to watch a film. IT WAS A REALLY GREAT FILM ABOUT DRAGONS AND MONSTERS AND HEROES WERE FLYING ABOUT ALL OVER THE PLACE. As a result,
(2) you went to bed too late. THE BED WASN’T MADE BUT YOU WERE TOO TIRED TO WORRY. In the morning,
(3) you didn’t hear your alarm. THIS WAS HARDLY SURPRISING.
(4) You woke up late.
(5) You got dressed in an awful hurry, THE ROOM WAS IN A TERRIBLE MESS, THINGS WERE LYING EVERYWHERE.
(6) You didn’t have time for any breakfast and you
(7) rushed out of the house, like a bat out of hell. It was only after you HAD CLOSED the door that
(8) you realised you HAD FORGOTTEN your keys.


Description with WAS, WERE, HAD or PAST CONTINUOUS makes the narrative more palatable (rico/a, apetitoso/a).

The past perfect continuous can add to this description.

YOU HAD BEEN WORKING REALLY HARD AND WANTED TO GIVE YOURSELF A TREAT, so you stayed up to watch a film….you didn’t hear your alarm.
You woke up late. ACTUALLY YOU HADN'T BEEN SLEEPING VERY WELL RECENTLY...YOU HADN’T BEEN LIVING IN THE FLAT FOR VERY LONG.

The past perfect continuous is very useful for giving background description to a story, in a similar way as the past continuous tense.


Compare: When I woke up yesterday it was raining. - The rain was falling when I woke up
When I woke up yesterday it had been raining. - The rain wasn’t falling when I woke up. It had (recently) stopped. The ground was still wet.

 

Use the past perfect in 3rd conditional 'if' sentences:

If I hadn't drunk so much whisky on Saturday night, I wouldn't have felt so bad on Sunday morning.

If Craig HAD GOT MARRIED when he was 22, he'd have had a family at a very yound age.
If Reza HADN'T STAYED in Valencia, he might have gone to Sardinia.
If Mike's parents HAD TAKEN him abroad when he was really young, he would have learnt another language.
If Mike HADN'T BROUGHT his daughter to Spain, she wouldn't have learnt Spanish.

 

ITALKI AD READ

 

The past perfect is also used in reported speech:

"I HAD never MET Mike before I started working at the school." - Craig said that he HAD never MET Mike before he started working at the school.


It's often ok to use the past simple instead of the past perfect, especially when there is a time expression:

Bill had been married twice before he met Susan. (past perfect) - Bill was married twice before he met Susan. (past simple)


Time expressions

Mike's Basque Beret (boina)

"I haven't seen Mike's beret before." / "I haven't seen Mike in a beret before."
"It's the first time I have seen Mike's beret." / "It's the first time I have seen Mike in a beret."

Looking back, and talking about the past, you could say, "It was the first time I had seen Mike's beret." / "It was the first time I had seen Mike in (or wearing) a beret."

It's three months since I spoke English / It's three months since I've spoken English.

It was three months since he had spoken English.

More time expressions often used with the past perfect: by the time, before, after, as soon as, no sooner.....than....., up to then/that moment

and 'because' for giving reasons: "He was very dirty BECAUSE he had just been walking in the rain."

Craig went to bed early last night because he'd been exercising and he was very tired.


Practice

Tell a story and use the past perfect.

Craig: You are a Zombie.
Reza: You woke up naked on a park bench this morning. (to cut a long story short - "en resumen", "resumiendo", "y te la hago corta".....)
Mike: You started speaking fluent Chinese for no apparent reason. (the long and the short of it is....."en resumen", "resumiendo", "y te la hago corta".....)

Thanks Mike! You can find Mike's website and his CD on how to learn phrasal verbs at: http://mikehardinge.com/

Episode #113 – The Tale Of Two Marketers  

Two guys joined our “Inner Circle” on the same day, one quit. Where are they at now, 12 months later?…

On today’s episode Russell tells a story about a friend of his, Mike Stazyk, who took a risk and how it paid off. He also talks about why taking risks is important for growing your business and how to set Lead or Gold deadlines.

Here are some interesting things you’ll hear in this episode:

How Mike Stazyk took a risk by spending his college tuition on something that could make or break his business. Why Mike’s friend who didn’t take the same risk is still struggling with his own business. And why setting Lead or Gold deadlines is important for growing your business.

So listen below to hear an interesting story about a kid who went from knowing nothing about marketing to making it big by taking some risks.

---Transcript---

Hey everyone! It’s Russell and it’s literally three in the morning right now. I’m driving home, and this is another very special, exciting episode of Marketing in Your Car.

All right, so I guess it’s three a.m., I’ve just dropped someone off at the Hyatt place, and I wanted to tell you a story about him.

So his name is Mike Stanzic. Some of you guys may know him. If not, you should get to know him, he’s amazing.

But Mike, he’s here in town because we’re trying to film a kind of promotional video with him, talking about our coaching program, and just kind of hang out with him and have a good time and it’s been really cool, and I wanted to tell you guys a story about him because it’s pretty impressive.

Actually, I’m going to tell you two stories, and these two stories are going to illustrate why he is successful, and why -- if you’re struggling, if you’re struggling to be successful right now at this time in your life -- you need to look at what he’s doing, and it’ll help you understand what you need to do to get where you want to be.

So Mike was a college kid. He had dropped out of college and was like trying to figure out what he wanted to do. I think he said he had like $23,000 in his bank account that was meant -- that he had saved up for his college tuition.

He went to this Tony Robbins event, and at the Tony Robbins he met this guy, and they kind of became friends and stuff, and Mike didn’t know anything about Internet marketing.

He was involved in a network marketing program but didn’t know anything about Internet marketing, and this other guy was big, like had been studying Internet marketing.

And so after the Tony event, they were driving home, and they were just kind of talking, and this guy was telling Mike all about Internet marketing and how it worked and all these cool things, and Mike was like, “Well, I could use that for my Internet marketing business.”

And anyway, his friend basically said, “Hey, there’s this guy. His name is Russell Brunson, and I wanted to join his coaching program. It’s really expensive, but it’s going to change my whole life, and I think you should join it, too. We should join it together. It would be awesome!”

And so Mike got excited, and said, “Okay, let’s do it. Let’s join this thing together,” and so they joined.

And so, anyway, so this is the next Monday, so next Monday we get a phone call at our office from the buddy, and he signs up for our $25,000 Inner Circle Program, and then like four hours later Mike calls up and signs up for the $25,000 Inner Circle Program.

And I guess what happened, you know, Mike told me the story now, is that his buddy was like, “Hey man, I’m going to do it! I’m going to do it!” And he’s like, then he called Mike, “Hey, I did it! I sent the check in. The money is going, like I’m in, and you need get in, too.”

So Mike is like, “All right, I’m in,” so he went in and actually did it. Wrote a check, sent it in. Got involved in the program, and basically, yeah, he got in the program.

And then, Mike called the guy back like later on that day or maybe it was the next day and to talk about it, and the guy was like, “Aw! I couldn’t afford it.” Mike is like, “What?” He’s like, “Yeah, I couldn’t afford it.”

He’s like, “Are you kidding me? You couldn’t afford to like… Like you just told me you sent a check. Well, I wrote a check based on that.” Like he said, “I send my college tuition on this thing. It was like every penny I had in my bank account.”

And the guy was like, “Sorry I can't do it,” and so Mike was like stuck at this point, and, you know, the buddy called us and canceled. But Mike had stayed in and basically Mike was like, “You know what? I committed to this. I can't… I got to do it.”

So he went through and did it. He showed up at our next Mastermind meeting or our first workshop, as green as green can be. The guy didn’t know anything about Internet marketing or anything.

And we started the Mastermind group and there’s 18 people or so in this group, and each person is supposed to get up and present their business, and before I started it, I said, you know, “Does anyone want to go first?”

And Mike jumps right up and stands in front of the room -- doesn’t know anything about anything! Stands up there, starts drawing a picture of his supplement that he sold through his MLM, and said, “This is what I have,” and that was it, and so we started working on this thing.

Man, he just jumped in and just worked hard and spent the next four months, building out his first funnel and launching it. Making some money, and then kept going from there and ended up learning how to drive traffic, and just kept growing and evolving.

I’ve been watching him do this stuff, and anyway he came today, he was kind of talking about what he’s doing. I didn’t realize his last week alone he made 10 grand.

Last month I think it was close to like 30 grand or something crazy like that, and what was interesting is that he told me that his buddy, the guy that had signed up and then canceled, basically had just reapplied for school because he’s frustrated and his business hasn’t grown.

He’s just stagnated and he was going back to school now to figure out Option B, and it was just kind of cool to see this tale of two people, right? Two people who started at the exact same situation, both made the same commitment.

One followed through and one didn’t, and where is their life at now? What’s the difference? You know, what’s been happening, and it’s just kind of cool to see that.

And just to kind of like put you in perspective of like the type of person that he is, he was telling me a story tonight that he wanted do this partnership with this guy that he was going to be calling, and it was for this mortgage broker thing.

The guy told him, “Hey, you need to start cold calling mortgage brokers,” and Mike was like, “All right.” So he grabbed a phone book and starting cold calling mortgage brokers. He didn’t even know what the pitch was but started dialing numbers, and saying, “Hey, so we’ve got this thing…”

And didn’t even know what it was, and was trying to like explain this thing, and he didn’t even know what it was. The first one went and it totally bombed, so Mike called the guy back, “Hey, it bombed, but this is what I said…”

And the guy is like, “Well, that’s not what we’re selling. This is what we’re doing,” and so he kind of tweaked it.

Anyway, he kept dialing, and just cold calling mortgage brokers out of a phone book; selling a product he didn’t even know what it was, just because the guy said, “you need to do it.”

And he just jumped in and did it and did it and did it and boom! And eventually landed like four or five mortgage brokers in this deal, and just did it, and I was telling him how impressive it is for me.

Like he’s the kind of person when he just moves forward and he hits something, and then he just keeps moving forward, he keeps moving forward and he keeps moving forward.

And I told him how rare that is, like people don’t just do that. Like most people, they start moving forward, they hit something and they stop, and then they stop.

Maybe they’ll move forward again, they hit something, they stop. And the reason why he’s successful is because he doesn’t stop. When he hit something he keeps going and he keeps going. He doesn’t let fear or excuses or no money or whatever, he doesn’t let the fact that he doesn’t even know what the product is, stop him.

He just goes and goes and goes and goes, and I look at this kid now, 20… I think he’s 22 or 23-years-old. You know, he’s ten years younger than me, and this is a guy who’s got the world on his fingertips.

He can literally do whatever he wants now. Because he just brute-forced through this, he understands funnels and traffic, and I’ve seen him build funnels now for himself and other people, and he’s learned the process and it’s just… it’s amazing.

And so, I wanted to share that story, first off, because it inspired the heck out of me, and hopefully inspires the heck out of you as well. I hope that it makes you guys look at yourself, and then kind of look internal and look at like what are the things that keep you from moving forward sometimes?

You know, it’s kind of funny, on the flip side of that I had a phone call today with another person who joined our coaching program, who signed up, went through the initial program.

Went through my initial consult I do with them, where I kind of steer them in the right direction. I map out a business model, a funnel for them, and gave them everything on a silver platter, and then for two months he didn’t do anything.

And then, two months later he calls me and is like, “Hey, so I haven’t done anything. I can't remember what you wanted me to do. Can we do another call, so that you can re-explain to me what you told me two months ago?”

I was like, “No, like

James M Rothstein NYPD | Process Church  

Guest JAMES M ROTHSTEIN NYPD Ret. - Process Church, Son of Sam, Manson, and more My guest today , James M Rothstein NYPD Det Retired, was just fascinating. We discussed the Son Of Sam investigation, The Franklin Coverup, Boys Town, Manson, Organized crime cases in NYC. NYC politics and blackmail. Just a fascinating guy from NYC 70s NYPD. Great stuff. We even got into the French Connection case. Youtube link will be available tomorrow. One thing he is very passionate about is a law he wrote to combat human trafficking: Retired Detective Jim Rothstein as a member of the New York City Police Department and his retirement from the New York City Police Depart in 1980 to the present, has continued his work as a researcher and consultant on human trafficking. Det. Rothstein worked with various out of state agencies, officers, departments, professional groups, and numerous federal agencies to develop the expertise so vital to be effective. Det. Rothstein’s assignment to the New York State Select Committee Crime was also the end of his career. These hearings were ordered by Governor Carey of the State of New York and a Bi-partisan Legislative Committee. The mandate was to find what the effects these crimes were having on society. The most important lessons learned was that there must be absolute integrity, honesty, trust, and don’t use the merchandise. Honesty without integrity does little to help the Investigator establish credibility. You don’t break the law to enforce the law. If these principals are not followed closely, all trust is destroyed and you will become totally ineffective. The bright side of human trafficking; these are the true stories of Retired New York City Detective James Rothstein. There is a message and a lesson in every story. On the street, he was known as “Boots,” because he always wore black cowboy boots. Detective Rothstein was told he had been awarded nine medals. He never filed a request for recognition unless he was ordered to do so. Det. Rothstein never accepted or displayed any of these medals. Det. Rothstein always believed he had done his job to the best of his ability as a sworn Police Officer. These stories touch the heart and soul of the toughest Detective and are never forgotten. The names may be forgotten (he tries) but the faces and memories are always there. These are the forgotten children, prostitutes, victims of pedophilia, and others. There is no individual discrimination; they are all discriminated against, Black, White, Yellow, Indian, and whatever else there may be. They may be Catholics, Protestants, or any other denomination; they are all victims. Nobody cared or cares. The Dark Side of human trafficking, prostitution, pedophilia, and corruption go far beyond human comprehension. It is a world of “Smoke and Mirrors,” where “Deceit and Deception” are the norm. The degradation, torture, and mental manipulation of the victims that were uncovered in the investigations, conducted by Rothstein (Boots), were never made public. They were not politically correct, or feel-good do-good. You cannot disguise decadence with the smell of clover or the pureness of a white lily. It is what it is, vulgar and despicable. Great effort was taken by the powers to be to discredit and cover-up the findings. Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies have no problem doing low level investigations.

Guest: James M Rothstein NYPD 2013 10 17  

Guest: JAMES M ROTHSTEIN NYPD Ret. - Process Church, Son of Sam, Manson Retired Detective Jim Rothstein as a member of the New York City Police Department and his retirement from the New York City Police Depart in 1980 to the present, has continued his work as a researcher and consultant on human trafficking Det. Rothstein worked with various out of state agencies, officers, departments, professional groups, and numerous federal agencies to develop the expertise so vital to be effective. Det. Rothstein’s assignment to the New York State Select Committee Crime was also the end of his career. These hearings were ordered by Governor Carey of the State of New York and a Bi-partisan Legislative Committee. The mandate was to find what the effects these crimes were having on society. The most important lessons learned was that there must be absolute integrity, honesty, trust, and don’t use the merchandise. Honesty without integrity does little to help the Investigator establish credibility. You don’t break the law to enforce the law. If these principals are not followed closely, all trust is destroyed and you will become totally ineffective. The bright side of human trafficking; these are the true stories of Retired New York City Detective James Rothstein. There is a message and a lesson in every story. On the street, he was known as “Boots,” because he always wore black cowboy boots. Detective Rothstein was told he had been awarded nine medals. He never filed a request for recognition unless he was ordered to do so. Det. Rothstein never accepted or displayed any of these medals. Det. Rothstein always believed he had done his job to the best of his ability as a sworn Police Officer. These stories touch the heart and soul of the toughest Detective and are never forgotten. The names may be forgotten (he tries) but the faces and memories are always there. These are the forgotten children, prostitutes, victims of pedophilia, and others. There is no individual discrimination; they are all discriminated against, Black, White, Yellow, Indian, and whatever else there may be. They may be Catholics, Protestants, or any other denomination; they are all victims. Nobody cared or cares. The Dark Side of human trafficking, prostitution, pedophilia, and corruption go far beyond human comprehension. It is a world of “Smoke and Mirrors,” where “Deceit and Deception” are the norm. The degradation, torture, and mental manipulation of the victims that were uncovered in the investigations, conducted by Rothstein (Boots), were never made public. They were not politically correct, or feel-good do-good. You cannot disguise decadence with the smell of clover or the pureness of a white lily. It is what it is, vulgar and despicable. Great effort was taken by the powers to be to discredit and cover-up the findings. Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies have no problem doing low level investigations. When they go after the “Big Time” traffickers they have problems. ANY investigators, prosecutors, or other authorities that do an in-depth investigation are stopped by the powers to be and their careers are ruined. JAMES M ROTHSTEIN NYPD Ret.

Radio Detective Story Hour Episode 32 - Nick Carter, Master Detective  

From out of the pulps comes Nick Carter, Master Detective! This week "another case for that most famous of all man hunters - the detective whose ability at solving crime is unequal in the history of detective fiction - Nick Carter, Master Detective."

The character of Nick Carter goes back to 19th century detective stories as one of the staples of early Street & Smith publishing. Nick Carter may be the most published character in American fiction. By the time radio got a hold of him, the character had evolved into a private investigator. Starring Lon Clark (right) for the whole series.

I'll look a little at the history of this pulp character and the strange ride he took over the last 100 years! This week's episode: The Echo of Death.

In today's episode, Mike Subach joins us to share his experience in the world of performance.  Mike specifically sheds some light on how much stress can impact our ability to heal, rest, move, and especially perform!

Barry Craig Confidential Investigator - Zero Hour (Aired February 2, 1954)  


Zero Hour (02-02-54)
Craig's office was on Madison Avenue and his adventures were fairly standard PI fare. He worked alone, solved cases efficiently, and feared no man. As the promos went, he was "your man when you can't go to the cops. Confidentiality a speciality." Like Sam Spade, Craig narrated his stories, in addition to being the leading character in this 30 minute show. Nearly sixty episodes are in trading circulation today William Gargan as a Detective (and an actor) If William Gargan brought an air of authenticity to his roles as a private detective, there were some good very reasons. His father was a bookmaker, so Gargan learned a lot about the gambling world and met a lot of interesting characters from across the spectrum of society. The main reason why Gargan was so convincing as a detective was that he was probably the only actor of his time who had actually been a private detective. He first worked as a credit investigator and collection agent for a clothing firm. Once Gargan was shot at when he attempted to get a deadbeat customer to pay his overdue account. Next, he worked for about a year as a private detective with a New York agency for "$10.00 a day and expenses." Gargan did many of the usual detective jobs: guarding payrolls, tailing possible suspects, conducting stakeouts, and protecting clients with valuables.

#156: Lost Detective - The Life and Times of Dashiell Hammett  

If you enjoy shows like The Wire or True Detective, or film noir, there's one guy you can thank for that: Dashiell Hammett. He was a writer in the 1920s-1940s, and he is the guy who created the modern detective. He took the entire genre into the modern era. And Hammett was able to do this because he was in fact a detective for the Pinkerton agency before becoming a writer. My guest today, Nathan Ward, has written a book called The Lost Detective: Becoming Dashiell Hammett. We discuss how Hammett's experience paved the way for the modern American detective in entertainment.

348: Mike Michalowicz | Profit First  

Be a boss and automate your savings.

"Money amplifies our true self."-Mike Michalowicz

The Cheat Sheet: What is Parkinson's Theory? ____ makes us lazy, Mike fills in the blank. Money has now become a mechanism for what? What is The Wedge and how do you apply it for a better life? How to and why to start saving money, no matter how much or how little you make. And so much more...

Do you always tell yourself you'll save more when you make more money? Or maybe you did say that in the past but now you actually make more and still don't feel like you have enough to start saving. Here with solutions to both situations is the author of several books including Profit First, Mr. Mike Michalowicz.

Mike has written extensively about profits, making money and entrepreneurship. But even if you don't have a business or you don't consider yourself an entrepreneur, this show is for you. Today we talk about putting profit first and expenses second, whatever your financial situation. Listen in for all of that and so much more on episode 348 of The Art of Charm.

More About This Show:

By the time he was 35 Mike Michalowicz was a millionaire. He had sold his second business for mucho dinero and he was awfully proud of himself. Too proud in fact, something he readily admits caused his next missteps. After finding himself with boatloads of cash he decided to be an angel investor.

He thought that's what everyone does after they make a million - they invest in other businesses, show those businesses how to make millions and then earn billions as a result of their investment.

That was his plan, and it completely backfired. He didn't use common sense regarding the companies he chose and he paid the price for it. He paid the FULL price for it. Between his bad investments and his need to flash his money around with expensive cars, toys, etc, he lost all of his earnings.

So after a "Come to Jesus" moment, he went back to the drawing board of entrepreneurship with a different mindset. Instead of asking how he could make money and how much, he asked himself what was the right thing to do? His answer was to write The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur. Today it is a cult classic in the entrepreneurial and business worlds.

From there he went on to write The Pumpkin Plan, another insta-classic and then his latest best-seller Profit First. His most recent book is what we spend a great deal of the show talking about today. He gives us a quick overview of what the book is about and how to incorporate the topic into our own finances.

The nitty-gritty of Profit First is this: businesses who set aside a portion of their cashflow first as profits will be more profitable and lucrative in the long run than those who wait and see if there's anything left at the end of the fiscal year. It's all based around an idea called Parkinson's Theory, which (highly simplified) says you'll use up whatever is there no matter how great or small the amount.

Whether it's toothpaste, toilet paper or money, you're going to use whatever amount you give yourself and make available to be consumed. So Mike's contention is that businesses and people alike should be taking a portion of funds out first (ie putting profit first) and dispensing them into accounts they cannot touch.

If you are an entrepreneur, when you get paid set up your account to automatically withdraw a percentage and put it into a retirement fund. If you're employed talk to your employer about your 401(k); get it set up so it automatically deducts money before you even see your paycheck. Based on Parkinson's Theory you'll learn to live off the amount that's leftover. But if you don't automate this you won't do it, you'll end up spending all the money that's available to you.

Even if it seems like you can't afford to set aside any money right now Mike says to start with 1% of your paycheck. If you make $1k a week, then have 1% taken out. It's only $10, you won't even notice. But over time that money will start to add up in your retirement fund and soon you'll have far more wealth than you thought you could accrue.

This is a fairly watered-down version of Mike's teachings so tune in to hear the full details straight from the source! And after you do, thank Mike for being here and gracing us with his priceless knowledge. And thank yourselves for being here (I do) and we'll see you next time.

96: Changing golf with a BLAST of technology featuring Mike Bentley  

Mike Bentley is one of the leading biomechanists in the world and has been innovating technology for golf for many years. Mike's contributions have been helped create some of the best tools in golf (like the K-Vest) to analyze what the body is doing during the golf swing. Most recently his talents have been focused on creating one of the most advanced sensors to track exactly what your club is doing and being able to link that data directly to each swing via motion capture. This creation is now known as BLAST Motion.

In this episode, Mike and I had the chance to chat about the influx of data that is now available through all of these new technologies and how we can sort through it all so it makes us better golfers. In particular, Mike explains how the BLAST Motion technology has been helping both pro and recreational golfers make the connection between the "feel" of the club and what the data says.

Richard Diamond Private Detective - The Juice Bar Murder Case (08-09-53  


The Juice Bar Murder Case (08-09-53
Dick Powell starred in the Richard Diamond, Private Detective radio series as a rather light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes singing to his girlfriend, Helen (Virginia Gregg). It began airing on NBC on April 24, 1949, picked up Rexall as a sponsor on April 5, 1950, and continued until December 6, 1950. The shows were written by Blake Edwards. Its theme, "Leave It to Love", was whistled by Powell at the beginning of each episode. With Camel cigarettes as a sponsor, it moved to ABC from January 5, 1951, to June 29, 1951, with Rexall returning for a run from October 5, 1951, until June 27, 1952. Substituting for Amos 'n' Andy, it aired Sunday evenings on CBS from May 31, 1953 until September 20, 1953. Because Dick Powell was known for musical comedies prior to his appearance as Philip Marlowe in Raymond Chandler's Murder, My Sweet (1944) and because he was a detective who sang in Richard Diamond, Private Eye, some regard this radio series as an influence on the character of Philip E. Marlow (Michael Gambon) in Dennis Potter's Chandleresque The Singing Detective (1986). THIS EPISODE: August 9, 1953. CBS network. "The Juice Bar Murder Case". Sponsored by: Rexall.
