He has a unique way of helping people, increase as a person company and decrease frustration when it comes to attracting clients. Until opportunities have been connected with Nate through LinkedIn, and other social platforms for about a year. And I've been following his story and his success. And it's been super amazing to see what he's doing. I mean, he's doing this for four years. And it's just fascinating to see how far you can make it. When you keep going with the rate that Nate has been going, and I'm honored to have Nate here on the podcast. Nate, thank you so much for coming on to the podcast.

Nate Peterman 1:31
Yeah, absolutely. That we can make some time to do this and drop some drops the golden nuggets is what I like to say.

Junaid Ahmed 1:40
Absolutely, man. So I just took a bite on my Apple. Apple a day, keeps the doctor away. And when you all like me, you got to keep that doctor as much as you can. Alright, so you've been helping a lot of people you've been entered A lot of celebrities, a lot of people that have been over there overcome their challenges and made it their passion to do and extend their knowledge and their value to their audiences. So what inclined you to get into this business of being a publisher or being a podcast host? What's the story of Nate the Great Pyramid?

Nate Peterman 2:29
Yeah, absolutely. Oh,

you want me to do the short term story of the long term?

Junaid Ahmed 2:37
Let's see where we go, man. Let's say what what inspired you first to get on this platform and start doing this?

Nate Peterman 2:46
Okay, yeah, so to answer that question, it's funny. I've always had a passion ever since I was young, I'd say about 1415 years old. Some people would still call me young, but I hear it all the time that you know, I'm 23 But people look at me as like I'm beyond 50 and 60 years old in terms of wisdom and my soul and stuff. And I'm definitely grateful for that. But I've always had a big passion for really not just talking to people one on one, but actually talking deep

Junaid Ahmed 3:17

Nate Peterman 3:18
you know, stuff, whether it's relationships, whether it's stuff people are going through, and I was always that guy, because one of my first jobs was working at McDonald's. And I remember times when, after work, I would literally sit with whether it was, you know, a dude or a girl and talk to them about like life, whether they were going through a relationship issue, I remember this one girl in particular, she was telling me She's like, yeah, you know, I'm going through it, blah, blah, blah. And I basically gave her advice. You know, she started crying a little bit, but then it changed her, you know, it really impacted her as a person and I realized, like, wow, I'm really great at talking to people one on one and having like that, that counsel with them and You know, fast forward to today. I was like, Wait a second, I actually because people kept telling me like, Hey, you have a voice, you should really use your voice for nobody said, I casting but I was like podcasting would be great to, to really leverage. And then of course, I have my own business as well. So that helped a ton. But I started my own podcast. And that led me to interview and some really close friends of mine that have been through it throughout your life. And I was able to, of course, hear their story. They were able to share their story, kind of like what I'm doing right now and your podcast. And I of course took that and and really leverage that to some of the interviews that I do today, which, I mean, just to name a few off the top of my head. You know, I was fortunate enough to interview people like you know, Tony Robbins son, Jared Robbins, you know, Michael Jackson's nephew, TJ Jackson, a heavyweight World Champion, you know, crispian here at it, right? So people like that. And it's it's incredible because I always again, I've always had a passion for interviewing people, but mainly talking deep about life and now it's it's really transitioned to where it's at today. So it's been a blessing especially being based out here in Los Angeles because yeah, of the stars, all the celebrities, all the influencers are out here. So it's, like, super convenient for me to to do these in person or interviews because that's, that's all I do right now, you know,

Junaid Ahmed 5:28
now that's, that's really amazing just because just being able to get those stories out there and be close to the, to the, to the action and in Hollywood and LA, as pretty awesome. And then you mentioned how you know the first time you got to speak with somebody and you're giving her advice and she's broke down started crying. I mean, that's, that's pretty. We got it. We got to listen to more of that story. You know, you know, what was that that you told her? Which made her cry? It's, it's not that she, I mean, I'm sure there were some thing really deep that apply to her. But you know, we want to hear a little more of that. Well, what was that story?

Nate Peterman 6:12
Yeah, for sure. Um, so I'll rewind a little bit like years ago, just from what I can remember. So, whenever I came out of, you know, McDonald's working, you know, we basically I could tell something's up there and I said, Hey, you, okay? And she said, I'm kind of going through and I said, Oh, hey, let's, let's talk a little bit. And, of course, I wasn't necessarily as like super passionate and enthusiastic as what I am now. But we went in her car and she basically opened up about how she was going through some relationship troubles, like trust issues, and you know, how she can't necessarily believe some of the things that her boyfriend at the time was was saying, and, you know, I asked her questions. I was like, you know, how do you really feel you know, what, what's your goal within the relationship you know, more so deeper questions that Again, being from Pennsylvania Yeah, he was very small town at the time, not many people would even take the time to.

Junaid Ahmed 7:09
And it was some,

Nate Peterman 7:11
you know, go on your ship as you can to ask these kinds of questions. So, you know, with her being about one to two years younger than me, and I was 1716 at the time, so she's like, 1615. So, of course, with you, being that young, you're going through all the emotions. And it's, it's, you know, it's funny because a lot of people that are young in relationships at that time, chances are I forget the statistic but they're not always going to work out I get super duper rare. So of course, I have this in my mind as well. And I'm asking her these different trigger questions. And, you know, it's funny, because what these questions I was asking her, it really opened her up, she really was thinking, and then you know, I believe it might have been like a week or a couple weeks later, she like, thanked me and it was just like, wow, like I'm so clear now And long story short, they, they weren't even a thing anymore because I'm not saying I broke it off. I'm just saying that I got her to realize exactly what it is that she wanted. And she realized, like, hey, this isn't what I want, you know?

Junaid Ahmed 8:12
Yeah, no, that's pretty powerful. Because a lot of the times we just lie to ourselves, right? We we lie to ourselves and we like always going to work out, oh, this is going to happen. But unless we make the decisions and make moves in the right direction, those are just pipe dreams. Right? The just earlier um, I was I was listening to Greg roulette and he was like, you know, make two circles. Outside of the outer circle. So you make a donut outside of the outer circle. Those are your dreams. And inside the inner circle is are things that are no contest, like you got to go pick up your kids, there's no there's no way you're gonna you know, give up And now you gotta pay the bills, you got to pay the dozer on. So where he used, you know, there's, there's no as there's no skipping that you know you got to pay the mortgage, you gotta pay the bills, you gotta pick up your kids, you got to make sure you take make time. So those are non negotiable things. So unless those dreams are in your non negotiable circle, you're not going to get those dreams to be a reality. So, as you started your journey of being the podcast host I'm sure Around this time, you know, the technology and the ability to be to be a podcast host was much easier. I mean, you've been doing this for four years, you know, so the technology has gotten a lot easier now than it was, you know, four or five years ago. What, what, Who were some of your inspirations on the podcast front, that You know, this could be a way for me to get my voice out there and start talking to more and more people.

Nate Peterman 10:09
Yeah, that's a great question. So yeah, I started my podcast back in. What was it February of 2018. So I've been doing this for about just close to two years coming up this upcoming February, and the podcast that I was listening to. And I was listening to such podcasts like what's the name of it? It's Eric Thomas, his podcast. The secrets to success podcast secret to success podcast. That was one of them. I was listening to of course, Gary B's podcast that's really well known. Tony Robbins. I was listening to some of his I was only listening to like a couple podcasts and then yeah, again, whenever I was listening to these I was like, it's so funny because I never was like, Okay, my ultimate goal and something I want to do is start a podcast like I never thought about that until one day it just like Hit me. And obviously you know what, maybe I should try it because I was at home at the time. I, you know, had a man, I still have the same exact MacBook Air. Yeah, you know, use for my podcast today. And it's funny because whenever I started that was back in a small town in Pennsylvania. And now, you know, I'm doing the same exact thing out here in California with the same computer. Of course, I upgraded my mic, I was using just regular Apple headphones, right. And then, on some of my earlier interviews, you'll see me with like, air pods that I had, and then somebody was like, Nate, you should really, you know, get like a Yeti or a blue microphone, and I see Yeah, let me let me do it. So I invested like 130 hundred 50 bucks into the microphone. And then, of course, I still get feedback today about Nate, you should upgrade this you should upgrade here. And you know, of course, I'm sure I will upgrade more here in the near future. But um, yeah, I'm just like, I'm blessed to have what I have exam. Again, you know, I didn't have necessarily a anointed cancelling kind of Mike. You know, I didn't have a, you know, the best camera because I do video interviews as well, I just had these basic and normal resources. And, you know, in my earlier episodes here, of course the sound doesn't sound as clear or crisp as it is today. But uh, yeah, just yeah, just one day, it was like, You know what, let me start started a couple episodes. And I started interviewing a couple of close friends of mine. And then that really triggered and I realized, wow, you know, I'm not just good at this. I don't just love it. But I actually want to make something out of it. People ask me all the time. You know, what's, what's your goal, Nate with the podcast, you know, how much money do you want to make with it? I'm like you to be honest. I want to make no money with it, you know, because it's one of those things where I can, you know, it's a hobby and I know you can really relate with that at time. You know, it's a hobby of mine that I genuinely love to do. And when you have a hobby that you love to do, you know, nothing else really even matters. Whenever I do interviews in person with people, I walk away smiling and blaring like, like the sun, you know? Yeah. It's just, it's an incredible thing. Yeah,

Junaid Ahmed 13:10
you're absolutely right, man, there is no making money on the podcast world. I mean, it all comes down to what level you get up to and what products you have to sell. That's a totally different topic altogether. Right? It's all about having those conversations having a relationship, right. And like Seth Godin mentioned, podcasting is a new way of blogging. It's much easier to consume, and people listen to podcasts more fully than reading articles, or reading blog posts. Right? So it's, it's a new, it's a new way to share your story, to talk to other people and get out in front of the audience. And you know, when you mentioned, you know, when you started, you just, you're just using your head Set that came with the iPhone, you just you know, you use the simplest things available. But what you did too is take action, right? A lot of the times as videographers, as photographers as consumers, we're told, oh, you need the best, this and this and this. What? what's crazy is that having invested money and and blaming all I don't have the best camera to be able to go out there and shoot a movie. Those are just, again, excuses that people make, so they they can pass out or they can be like, Oh, I don't have this. I'm not going to do it. Right. So it's like an excuse. At the time that we are in right now we have the best tools available in our hands. The devices that we use to write to fall, go on Facebook and create Snapchat stories. These are the devices That can let you do a creature on podcast or create your own little short film. Steven Soderbergh created a movie using three iPhone seven pluses for the different shots. And this movie's on now on Netflix is called unsane. So just thinking about that, right? Just having the ability, or having that the tools doesn't make you a great videographer or storyteller or publisher. You got to be able to do it and put in the work just like you did. That's really awesome. I love it.

Nate Peterman 15:35
Now, absolutely, I agree to that, because that's the thing. If you go to the to the roots of success podcast, you know, that's my podcast you'll see earlier this year, let's say from May like the end of May, up until August, going into September, you'll see there's a blank period where there's absolutely no episodes that were uploaded, and of course, I was in the transition from going to Pennsylvania, moving across country. Who you know Los Angeles, California and I fell victim to okay. Since I'm going to be doing in person interviews with the big time stars. Yeah, I need to have you know, like a videographer I need to have you know, some fancy dancy camera. I need to like I kept saying, I need I need I need Yeah, held me back. And that was one of the worst things that can ever happen to somebody which is called procrastination. That made me procrastinate for three months. Yeah, to upload any podcast. And to be honest, I was miserable as three months because I just wasn't working on my passion. And since I wasn't working on my passion, it just, it made me feel definitely low. And I mean, just the other day like, because I bang these podcast episodes out of the one week I did about like, four or five and a week and ice. You know, I went just this past two, two and a half weeks without doing any because I'm all the way great up until after the New Year's. So yeah, that's episodes to upload per week, what I realized with me not doing an episode for two, two and a half weeks, but also made me kind of get like a little bit down because, again, this is my passion and since you're not getting traction,

Junaid Ahmed 17:12
yeah, you're not getting the feedback, right when you when you have a conversation with somebody, the feedback and what you lie like we had, like our brains have an exchange, which you cannot do in any other medium at all. So I totally get it, man, I totally get it. And you kind of feel like, Sure, we can create posts and create videos on on on Facebook and Instagram, right? So that gives you one kind of feedback so but when you're having this live conversation, and that's why I guess one of the things people say you know, you gotta you gotta do more live on Facebook or Instagram or whatever. It's, it's because you're getting that direct feedback. And that's probably one of the reasons why TWITCH has been around for so long because people being able to live stream their gaming experience. It's it's been, it's been pretty, pretty insane.

Nate Peterman 18:13
Absolutely, I completely agree.

Junaid Ahmed 18:15
But one thing that I was told, right, so a lot of people say, you know, you got to go live on Facebook, you gotta go live on here and here. But unless you have a story to share, and it has to make sense because it's almost like if somebody comes in to your live towards the end of your live, you know video and they just get to pitch part of whatever, well they missed the entire movie. It's like you're going towards the end of the battle scene to watch the you know, infinity the end game and it's like the last war I'm like, Wait, what? How is Captain America Holding the hammer. Right? So you got to have the entire story and I think video does that really well and posting videos as opposed to going live? Make sense? You got to have I mean, some kind of strategy and why you're doing the live and why you're posting videos. And I think I think I'm just going all over the place now. Yeah, no,

Nate Peterman 19:32
no, I agree. I mean, definitely with the videos. I mean, that's the thing. You know, you see a lot of people nowadays, you know, on social media, that they're creating content, but if we're talking about video content, it's very similar to the way others are creating content and a lot of these big time influencers that are absolutely dominating it, whether it's one, you know, whatever platform Instagram, tick tock Facebook, It's intriguing because they'll tell you all the time that listen if you're going to do something don't do it the same exact way you know this entrepreneurs doing it or this influencers doing it because then people will look at you and see, okay, well, he's obviously doing this or she's doing this just because, you know, so and so has done it this way. And you need to develop in your, in your mindset that in order to be great and I mean, and I'm not just saying like gray like, you know, because great to a lot of people sounds just like good nowadays, but I'm saying like the the point 1% in order to be great, remarkable, incredible, phenomenal, spontaneous. I'm talking like that Elon Musk that Mark Zuckerberg level, you got to do things that aren't even existed in this world yet. Yeah. And that right there like it's it's, it's something to hear that but when you really comprehend that and take it in that right there is it's powerful because most people whenever you get asked like What's one thing that you can do that hasn't even been done yet? I mean, it might take you hours, if not days, if not weeks, months to even think about something. Because that's something that if somebody wants to make a huge impact in this world, and not just again, talk about it or speak about anybody can speak about anything. Yeah, depending on whether you study or whatever story that you have. But if we're talking about people that have legacies and left legacies, there's there's a reason why people do what they do back again to the video, and they're great at what they do on video. So you get on video, and you don't necessarily get the hits. Or you don't necessarily get you know, the likes the comments or the shares or the thumbs up the, you know, the subscribes is because it's already done. And if it's already done, then again, you're not going to have it as I don't want to say it's easy, but it's it comes a lot natural to the person that has done it, which who again, it didn't necessarily exist before but they made it exist. So that's Um, you need to think about for yourself is what can you that is non existent right now bring to life and really just dominate that going forward, you know?

Junaid Ahmed 22:10
Yeah. And and tell your own story right to to tell your own story to tell it in your own words and your fashion. So people you know they want to see who you are as a human being as a person because if you're a different person at parties, then you are at work then you are in your car and then you are right, other places well, then you have different versions, but if you line up that one person to be the same everywhere, then people will relate to you even better. And, again, I'm not sure if this is what the topic of the conversation is today, but be the best of You You can be because there's no other you. There's none right? Yeah, that's like there's only one named the Great Pyramid. I mean, I look look up I looked up the Great Pyramid on Instagram and it showed up some football player but he's got his own story, but need the great has his own story with the podcast you being a podcast host and, and an author to the secret of success. Did I get that right? The secret of success the book right?

Nate Peterman 23:38
Success Secrets for the young entrepreneur.

Junaid Ahmed 23:40
Success Secrets. The roots of success podcast Which one is that? That's yours. Yep, that's the one I was mentioning. The roots of success podcast. So yeah, man, Nate. So what? So tell me some of your motivations and some of your day to day things. too, because I understand that podcasting is your passion and you do a few interviews per week, but what the rest of the week look like?

Nate Peterman 24:13
Yeah, that's a great question. So let me I can kind of walk through my day just a little bit. I've been working on getting up a lot earlier, because before I always used to label myself as like, I'm a night owl. And sometimes I wouldn't go to bed until after midnight one 2am especially here in Los Angeles, but I am making it a habit to wake up between like five, six in the morning and then really just get my day started by you know, whether it's making a light breakfast. And then you know, reading some books, I always just read this book, The law of success by Napoleon Hill. Really, really great book. If you haven't read it yet. I totally recommend it. It's like the Bible for personal development. And I do do a lot of reading in the morning. And then I listened to, of course, the podcast as well. Well Whenever I'm eating breakfast that way, you know, I'm not just Yeah, yeah, exactly. So I'm multitasking that, you know what, whether it's doing some kind of core workouts or, you know, hitting the gym, always try to do a little bit of physical activity that I normally go to the park here, here near my apartment and just, you know, do some, some walking and talking. And that's basically my time. So I like to set the day off just with a certain tone. But most importantly, the main thing I want you to understand is I don't have my phone on whatsoever. My phone is completely off. It's on airplane mode for about three to four hours unless I have, you know, an appointment or something I need to attend to, but I always have my phone off just because so many people are distracted by their phones. You know, I go to this park every single day and it's also a dog park. And I see a lot of people that walk their dogs, and it's just it's mind boggling mind boggling to me because These people are walking their dogs, but they have their phone in their hand and they're not even being present. And I see their owners just straight up dragging the dog along. And just yeah, it's, it's, it blows my mind because it's like, wow, this dog has absolutely no control over what their owner is doing. But, again, they're not present with their animal. If we're relating that to like a principle, a lot of people are present with their lives and they have their phone. Okay, which is also known as a TV. It's also known as a book. It's also as you know, a computer, it dominates their life. But, uh, but yeah, that's just basically you know, how I really start my day other than, you know, doing the podcast. I do, you know, decent amount of phone calls, whether it's, you know, in different countries. You know, I did a call the other day with a guy in the Bahamas. And that's with Simba marketing my company, and we really help people when it comes to get getting them featured in like press outlets like Forbes Wikipedia Business Insider. grilling York, you know, print magazines. And that really takes up a lot of my day forming new connections, reaching out to people, and really just, you know, setting up some meetings and stuff throughout the week as well. But that's pretty much a normal day.

Junaid Ahmed 27:14
Yeah. Fantastic. Fantastic. That's amazing. I really love the fact that you're getting up super early in the morning, getting a lot of you know, a lot of things going because when you start your day early before everybody else, you're almost like getting three extra hours before you have to deal with the traffic do the rush deal with everything else that's going on around because starting day late, gets you already in a bad mood, you know, you're rushing through life, you're rushing through everything so that's really awesome. And I love the fact that you're, you know, getting that book read in and and well When you're up in the morning and getting podcasts because again, our minds are constantly growing. You know, something brand new that I learned about our mind this week was that we get a brainwash every single day. And I've been dying to share this with people. And do I don't know how we get a brainwash every day.

Nate Peterman 28:28
Yeah, I'm curious.

Junaid Ahmed 28:30
So I learned this on Ron Burgundy's podcast. And he started this podcast about six months ago, and he brings on these guests. And so this, this one is a brain scientist, right? So he's talking to the brain scientists about all the different things. And then he says, you know, every night when you go to sleep, our brain shrinks down to 65% of its size. And what does what That does is it puts out all of the toxins outside which then flow down through the spinal cord through the spinal cord water comes up and washes your brain. And then all the toxins leave our body. You know when you have to get up in the middle of the night to go use the restroom. Yeah, your brain just had to brainwash because all those toxins, I'm like, okay, where do these toxins go? Or they go to the bladder. So, if you have to get up in the middle of night to go use the restroom, be happy that your brain just had a brain wash.

Nate Peterman 29:43
I like that.

Junaid Ahmed 29:44
Isn't that amazing? And then you know, I didn't think of that at all right. And so I just I just because he did just said you know, okay, so to the scientists like yes to the brain. You know, get rid of all these toxins from your body. From a from the brain and then you know, you get a brainwash. And then when I told my wife she's like, that's why that kids have to get up in the middle of that. And we have to get up in the middle of night to go use the restroom. I was like, you're right. Where else with the toxins? So that was like, wow, you know, you're constantly learning every single day. It's been. It's been, it's been pretty cool.

Nate Peterman 30:30
That's intriguing. Well,

Junaid Ahmed 30:31
yeah, man. I was like, and then I had my son listen to that episode. And he's like, that is hilarious. That is so funny. And, you know, what's his name? Ron Burgundy. He's always making fun and making jokes. And he's like, the scientist doesn't have a sense of humor because he's not able to get like son. Just wait till you're old enough to watch The Ron Burgundy movie so I was just fascinated because Will Ferrell is able to you know put this act together and share it on this podcast. It's just so amazing and the the podcast is just put well put together so well i mean he he also has a co host and it's really cool when you have a co host because he can then you know bigger and you know go back and forth as you having conversations really cool. On that note, man, I've got a few questions for you that I asked my guests. Okay, well, what is one hobby that you wish you got into?

Nate Peterman 31:44
as the one hobby I wish I would have gotten into was playing a musical instrument because I I don't know. You know, it's intriguing to me. I listen to like a lot of classical music from time to time, especially when I need to focus and you know, always intrigued me, especially people that play like the violin or the piano. Yes. How, how natural it comes to them. And, you know, some people, majority of people, you know, they've taken lessons and everything but definitely playing a musical instrument because it just activates a whole different part of the brain and just intelligent you know,

Junaid Ahmed 32:21
it's pretty amazing. I love it. Awesome. Next question. What is your favorite movie or TV show? Or if none, how about a book? Man, that's Yeah.

Nate Peterman 32:37
If I was to say, favorite movie, and I got so many favorite movies, I would say,

you know, especially of late, if we're talking about recent times right now, one of my ultimate favorite movies is the recent one that came out which is the Joker. I really liked that movie because it deals a lot with mental Health. And if we're talking about just like, you know, superheroes and villains and you know DC Comics, Batman has always been a favorite superhero of mine. I'm also a fan of The Dark Knight series but it's intriguing because you know, the movies they really just walk through. Again, you always have like a villain and then you have somebody that is superhero, but most importantly, it's, you know, the Batman and the Joker. They they have a they have like a love for each other at the same time. But yeah, it's intriguing because if you've seen the latest movie The Joker, you'll understand more sort of the mental health and the psychosis and the insanity somebody like him has, but I personally look up a lot to the Joker, especially just because of his his craziness to his madness, but, um, but yeah, I could talk about this all day, but the Joker is definitely one of my favorite movies as of right now.

Junaid Ahmed 33:52
Nice. Nice. So Joker's your favorite movie? What movie would you choose? If you Got to play a character in it.

Nate Peterman 34:04
Oh man, if I got to play a character in a movie,

um, it's a tough question. I would say.

You know, I'm not sure what movie it would be,


I have a feeling I know exactly what kind of actor it would be. I've always been told that I have facial expressions, very similar to a Jim Carrey. So I would say, if we're talking about a Jim Carrey movie, you know, maybe something like the, like the Cable Guy or some. You know what you want? I'm talking I know it's die about Yeah, yeah. Cuz, you know, Jim Carrey he's got he's got a little bit of madness into him. And I'm very similar in that way, especially as the facial expression. So I would say, I would say something similar to that movie. Yeah.

Junaid Ahmed 34:56
Nice. Nice. I like it. Cool. Who is your favorite superhero? Oh, Batman. Batman. You know, the Lego Batman was such an awesome depiction and the actor who played that character, he he's just, he's one of my, you know, one of my favorite character actors. He's done such a great job and all the different platforms that he's won. But him getting to play Batman, and then they're they're back and forth with Joker and Batman was just just hilarious. It's like you love me? Like no doubt. Right? It's just hilarious. He's like, well, you made all this effort to come and save me to the Phantom Zone because you love me. Like, no, I have no emotions. Alright, sweet. Now, last question. If you are Or a board game? What would it be?

Junaid Ahmed 36:25
You remember the first movie? Yeah. with Robin Williams, Robin Williams. Oh my God. That was so good. I was. I was like when did Robin villian comes Oh, he comes in when the game starts. So yeah, that was that was really cool. Robin Williams was one of my favorite actors. Um, his breadth. I mean, his level of acting in so many different ways was just cool and and he gave us one last TV show with Sarah Michelle Gellar. I can't remember the name, but that that show was amazing. I was really sad when I heard news of him passing away. And even Tony Robbins mentioned Robin Williams on stage. He's like, you know, if I knew that he was on the verge of committing suicide, I would have been right there with him to help him. And you know, not make that mistake. So really crazy, really crazy stuff. Cool, Matt, where this was, this was an amazing conversation, man. I really loved your story.
