Speaker 4: (00:50)
I’m here with Joe Jensen, the one and only from St George, Utah. Yeah. Good Buddy of mine. We go way back and today we’re going to be talking on charity and a charity week that we’re gonna be hosting. Yeah. And it July 22nd through the 27th yep. I have 27 so we’re launching this live right now. We’re going to give more details.

So comment below if you want to participate in the, in the, in the charity week. Yeah, I’m interested, comment say “I’m interested right now like I’m in”, I want to give sight to the blind, give sight to the blind. So we’re going to be launching this charity week together and it’s a DDT tribe type thing where we’re going to go in and we’re going to give sight to the blind.

Speaker 4: (01:35)
So the podcast today is going to be one kind of hype in that up and letting you guys know how we’re going to unify and recognize it door to door con, some of the guys that contributed the most, how to do it, what that means, a charity week as a tribe and how it’s going to impact us, the return that we’re going to get and then how it’s going to impact all people. Obviously we’re serving three charity vision. What I’m stoked like the, you decided that to get in on this. So this is something I did with my group last year, just really small. Just in my office and I was like, Hey, let’s do this charity week and we’ll get into the details of how that all came to be. But I was like, do we need to do this industry wide? Like why should just be my office?

Speaker 4: (02:13)
We need to do it everywhere. So you got on board, you were Super Jackson soon as I brought up too. You’re like 100% we got to do that. No, I mean one of the, one of the things that I’ve found is been charity has been an integral part in my experience. Yeah. Door to door with company trips and you know, charity days or charity weeks and things like that where I think a lot of companies lack that kind of cultural competency. Maybe they’re smaller, maybe that they’ve haven’t really ever been introduced to that. And so I want to kind of talk through like how this is as a tribe, why don’t we just all do it together? Yeah. And it’s, it’s so impactful, man. Like, I know for me I was, I just love just like, not like, oh I love giving back, but I love being able to like see the world through different eyes and make an impact. You know what I mean? It’s easy to just like take care of yourself, but when you get to see what it does

Speaker 5: (03:00)
help other people. So I remember before door to door, I did a charity trip out to Africa. I went to Kenya and Uganda for anybody’s from Africa. Shout out and it was just sort of go in to the dude that works at the hotel, cantor candidate from gone. There you go. He better be watching. He’s watching, we jammed. I’m like, what part of going are you from? But I was like, cause I know, I know. Yeah, I know. I like, yeah, I went to there. Do you speak tree? He’s like, you know what the language is even I’m like, Oh dude, I’m an expert. Yeah. But I can’t remember a word. I know. Every time I knocked at someone from Africa, I’m like, oh well I’ve been to you gun. Oh, there’s another, it’s yes. And they look at me, they’re like, dude, I’m from like West Africa.

Speaker 5: (03:42)
That’s like East Africa. That’s like a different country. I’m like my bad. But uh, but no it’s 60 cause like what I really liked it if I was like tip design, my perfect job, it would literally be like perfect life. It’d be traveling the world and like doing like helpful things like helping the people you travel. I think it’s weird like go to a country and just like sit in and Merriot hotel and like there’s Pekin little things in your a yeah. And then there’s like old, there’s like people like struggling outside the window. It’s Kofi. You can combine that with travel anyway. And so that’s what I love about when I got into door to door and they do these charity trips. I’ve been to like Billy’s and Cambodia and like different places doing that. But then one thing that was really cool is we started doing like local charity stuff too.

Speaker 5: (04:23)
And I wanted to figure out a way to, to make a more of an impact. And one thing that sucks. I don’t know, like if people have looked a lot into doing charities but they don’t all, like, they’re not all equal. Like sometimes like money’s getting taken off the top or like they want to have this good impact but then that it’s like if they’re actually like destroying the infrastructure of the country, they’re going in to save you. You know? It’s like if you go in, you just give somebody everything then they don’t need like figure it out for themselves. Yeah. And a lot of times it’s hard. Everybody’s like, I want to give back. And then they’re like, wow, you know what I mean? And you want to make sure it’s going to a good cause and you don’t want to be like, we were talking about how you went to Cambodia that you built.

Speaker 5: (04:59)
You built a wall and I was laying trays for the first day at this prison yard and I’m like, what am I doing this stupid? And like to me like we just took off where like, you know what, this is dumb. We grabbed our group, we had like van groups, we got like let’s get in the van and we just left, drove down into tillage and we’re like, hey, how can we help? Some people buy like a lady, a bicycle to get into town, like build a bathroom and put a roof on a house and like it was super really cool like they live in had no roof. Now I’ve got the ability to like like a roof over there, you know? But it’s not always easy. Like you say we were trying to do this and like the company had set up this stuff to like try to make an impactful when we have this many people and it’s isn’t always easy to help which is sad and you think you’d be like oh I want to help.

Speaker 5: (05:40)
I’ll just, yeah I just took a couple of phone calls and I’m making an impact like yeah but it’s not that easy. Like one thing I learned with charity vision is a lot of specially ones that go in and do like kind of like surgeries and like big like impact stuff. They can actually really screw up the local economy really, really bad and they can drive doctors out if they’re doing it wrong. And what’s really cool about charity vision and so that’s the company that we, we talked about. It’s through a company called charity vision. You can check them out and charity, vision.net is their website and you can learn a lot about it. But they, one thing that attracted me to them and why I decided last year to do a charity week with them was because of the infrastructure they do it, they, it’s super sustainable.

Speaker 5: (06:25)
They use all local doctors, they built their practices so that people will have the benefit of having goals in sox center to calm their economy. They’re exactly, it’s growing it there and as opposed to going in and destroying it, which unfortunately lot of like charities that have good meaning, good people wanting to do something. I just didn’t know all the details go in and actually like screw it up so this doesn’t do that, which is awesome. That’s what I really liked about this concept of helping give, you know, cataract surgeries and glasses and things like that, like giving the simple surgery to people that, you know, you’re telling me only takes 1520 minutes. Yeah. But it’s something that a local guy that doesn’t know how to do or nobody’s going to just be like, let me cut open your eye real quick. Right. Where a local guy could be like, let me let me lay some bricks.

Speaker 5: (07:09)
Like, you know what I mean? Like exactly. It’s like they could do that. Like I remember I’m sitting there, I’m painting a school in Nepal and I’m like painting, right? And the dude looks at me, he’s like, you suck at painting. Let me take over. It’s like this little Napoleon cat. I’m like, I’m hoping, but you do way better painting than I do. But it’s like the fact that these experts go and do these surgeries, train on medical procedures, give medical supplies that they would never be able to get anywhere else other than you can go to the local fricking mark and get some brick mortar and some paint. And some of these countries do. There’s this one, I was just watching this video. Um, and there’s like certain medicines that aren’t even available in some countries that they need for it. So we’re able to import that medicine, provide it all so that they can do those surgeries.

Speaker 5: (07:54)
And there’s like expensive machines and different things like that. They’ll use that if we can just give that to that doctor now he has it for his whole clinic and you’re like, oh, by the way, you know, here’s a couple of hundred people you need to do it for free for. And he’s like, heck. Yet when I just got a fricking device that nobody else had, and now I have a monopoly. But he has the skills to do an exactly. And that’s where the real value is. You know, in America when you’re paying thousands of dollars for these surgeries, it’s like it’s you’re paying for the doctor’s skills. Exactly. And if we can provide all the resources and he provides the, the skills and we provide the machines and it’s like, it helps everybody. And so it’s super cool. Like you said, like 80% of cataracts can be cured with a simple surgery, but in America you just go down and you get the surgery.

Speaker 5: (08:37)
No big deal. No one thinks about their, you know, especially for like little kids, like they have a like a lazy artist to go fix it. Right. But if you’re in India and you don’t even have, like you’re making a dollar a day and it’s, you don’t even know where there’s constantly and people that, yeah. You know what I mean? We can’t even fathom sometimes the life out and these countries, it’d be literally impossible. You don’t even know where to begin. There’s over 20 million people that suffer from blindness because of something that could be fixed in 20 minutes. Yeah. And for 25 their whole life, 2025 bucks and their whole life they’ll go without seeing. Yeah. Imagine living without seeing. Well, and that’s what happens to kids. Little kids get this like lazy eye. Then they’re on their brain gives up on the eye and so by, after a few years of it, my NDI dies, my niece actually has that.

Speaker 5: (09:25)
She’s like one and she wears these glasses and it’s like you have to use your eyes yeah, yeah, yeah. So she was in like Madagascar or something. They don’t know. They don’t have, they’re just like, oh my kid looks funny. And like it literally the culturally even like sometimes like, oh, what’d you do? Are you a center? Like are you, you did something wrong. And they’ll like kick them out and we could go in, fix it. Now they’re not going to lose eyesight and it changes their whole life. So super, super impactful from that was something I wanted when I was looking for a charity partner for like my office to a charity week is like I want to send it to be impactful, not painting or like laying bricks that somebody else could do. And it was cool to be in a foreign country, but I want somebody to have a huge, huge or, and I cannot think of anything that would provide a bigger impact in giving sight to the blind.

Speaker 5: (10:13)
That’s huge. And that’s what kind of got my eyes like that’s like something I could really get behind. And the other piece of this. So it’s like why not do it as a community, as a tribe to give our name as another stamp of like, hey the door people are good people. Like, yeah, not just like we’re not just these scumbags that come from out of jail cause we can’t get other jobs like your house. Some people. It’s so funny, like that’s what we’re perceived as sort of forms and just being like, look as an association, as a group, as a tribe, we can, you know, do things together and unify and up level. That’s like my mission statement. Unify uplevel, bring honor and integrity to door to door selling. What better way to say let’s rally together and support each other. Like let’s get butts, give back a little bit as a group.

Speaker 5: (10:57)
And anyway, we have no end. Like we don’t get anything from this. Like, yeah, it’s not like, you know, like I get like a good crew, I’m ticking override like no. Yeah. So what’s cool and why? Why, why not only this dude, Sam, get this. So not only do we not make anything, this is totally just for the fun of it, but charity vision, the company, they’re funded, all their like infrastructure is funded from an outside source. And so all the donations, 100% goes wait till you’re not. So I’ll see. Yeah, private jet, you’re not paying for overhead, which just nothing wrong. It’s the charities have overhead too, but they’ve been able to keep this one small. So the 25 bucks, if any of you go night donate 25 bucks, that’s going to go straight 100% to these surgeries. That’s it. Nothing can take it. I love that. And maybe as the company grows, I might shift a little bit, but right now, like just a hundred percent go. That’s actually impact and which is cool. So what we’re going to do, if you’re listening or watching this right now, we don’t have the site up because this is new and

Speaker 4: (11:53)
we want to kind of frame it, get everybody the interest. So, like I said at the beginning, if you’re interested, but I’m in or I’m interested, I want to participate in the charity weeks. We can send you more information or you know, but what we’re going to do is on DDD con’s website, DDD con four.com forward slash charity week, we’re going to have a place where you can go and donate and you can go and learn more about watch videos on how it’s impacting and educate yourself on that cause so that we can kind of all rally behind this, uh, a common goal. So we kind of set up like a little like charity week packet where every day you can watch a different video in your correlation meetings. See, cause it’s one thing to talk about, oh somebody’s getting excited. But when you can actually see the video on the story of like how it changed that person’s life, it’s way more impactful.

Speaker 4: (12:40)
So you want to know that this reminds me of it. So when I was in all through high school, I had painted the addresses on the curves. You know, my pitch was, hey, so portion of what we make, we donate the kids in Africa. Oh really? Yes. See, so doing this from the same pitch since I was 12 I’m gonna let go. So 10% I said I portion that knows only 10% which is a portion I would actually write checks to a company called a charity called Mothers Without Borders. I just, my eagle project in Zambia earlier I took yarn. This is so funny. So I was able to literally buy barrels of yarn, ship it over, and I taught women how to sustain themselves through their own business, through crocheting. So I’m over there teaching like bunch of women how to crochet. So you know how to crochet.

Speaker 4: (13:31)
Oh, I love it. I just bought some sales that are pro crochet. I bought yarm to say sell old people too, by the way. Learn how to crochet. Speak their language. The old ladies, everybody’s like, how do you sell old people? I’m like, I crow shit. Like they buy that shit. That’s, but I do actually just barely got some new yarn. It’s like that fathom. And it made my new daughter, I’m pregnant with our third and we’re making her baby like it. So you’re like crap, still practice. Like I still practice. It’s a thing. It’s a religion. I practice crocheted, fun tip about Sam. But anyway, so that was my eagle project. So I actually did um, donate to this, you know, I got behind this and I actually went out there and did some charity with them. So it was actually Kinda cool. So since a young age, I’ve utilized charity as actual sales motivation too.

Speaker 4: (14:16)
Because if you can go to a customer that week, let’s say charity week, it’s the 22nd through the 27th July 22nd to the 27th yeah. So everybody sign up, right? It’s going to happen now. It’s going to happen. So we’re going to be sending out more and more posts. You’re going to seem us talking more and more about it, but what’s going to happen is you’re going to do the customer and don’t use it to guilt them to be like. Don’t do that at the end. Be like, just so you know with this deal, here’s a check Karen on top. Yeah, I’m actually going to take some of this money and give sight to the blind. Check out this video and show him the video or show him that you’re waiting for your technician. It is like show them that and

Speaker 5: (14:52)
be like, how cool is that? How much more solid is that customer? How much more are they like this is sick. We did this last year, right? So I it’s so just Craig history, how even heard about charity vision. I just heard it on a podcast and this guy was like, oh yeah, like I work with charity vision. He was the president I think Uhm, is written Mitt Romney son Josh Romney is like the president of or whatever. So I just emailed the minute to speak at door to door con. So if anybody knows me I go, well let’s make that is some shit is president of charity visions. So Josh, there you go. Like he’s already proactively saying we need it on there. Anyway, I just said, hey, I’m gonna make another announcement of the speakers cause I wanted to say this to somebody at some point. So if you’re wanting to hear firs, you’ve heard it here first is a first time announcing this just paid Tim Grover.

Speaker 5: (15:40)
Oh yeah. So relentless. If you’ve read the book, if not, go check it out. Tim Grover speaking at 2019 or 2020s DDD con. And then I’ve got a few more in the pipe so I’m not going to say those, but he’s telling me after. That’s exciting. Do you know Tim Growers? He’s the, Jeff didn’t want to go on a tangent, but that’s exciting. So, so anyway, yeah. So I listen to this podcast and he’s talking about charity vision, like giving sight to the blind, which I’m like, well that sounds like the coolest thing in the world. And then it’s sustainable. It’s affordable to infrastructures, right? All the money goes straight to charity. I’m like, this is like the perfect case scenario and it’s affordable. That’s another thing I’ve done. Charities are like, okay, you get a donate five sales and you’re like, Oh Dang, I want to throw, I’ll pay my mortgage but this 25 bucks.

Speaker 5: (16:23)
So I didn’t, I didn’t even have my guys pay anything. I just said, hey, I’m just gonna pay it out of the override, whatever. Like every sale you do this week it’s going to be donated. So they’re like, there’s no, they’re just like sweet. And I said, you can match it if you want. So some guys volunteer to Matt, so I would doing it and they are matching it. And then the company I sell for as well, fluent like, hey, we’ll match it too. So then we were like triple dip and on every single sale from me, one from the rep, which is three people get no eyesight. Yeah. Three surgeries getting funded. If you’re a business owner or you’re a manager or you’re somebody of implements, leverage that. Like try to motivate and get your people rallied because it’s going to help them sell more.

Speaker 5: (17:02)
They’re gonna feel better about knocking longer hours. They’re going to get more, you know? Did you see that? Did you see a little bit more of like a, Oh cool, I’m excited. It was our best week. That week was our best week. So what another reason to do a tribal DDT, you know, give back. We, it was obvious. It’s another opportunity especially in, and the reason why we positioned end of July, everybody’s in the thick of it. You’re in the new, the new days are over, the momentum has kind of hit and now you’re just in robot money. Here’s the thing, do like you’ve made a lot of money by then too. Like a lot of guys are like, I made some money. If they’re brand new, they’re there. Like by July there’s like, holy smoke, I never made this one. And even I’ve been doing this, this my 10th year in the industry, this is my 10th summer knocking. And it’s like sometimes the money just doesn’t motivate you anymore. You’re like, I’m good. Like I have my house, I have my best. It’s like I don’t care about the money anymore. But it’s like that can give you a little extra like, hmm. You know what I mean? And so that’s what I really like about a guy who just got stoked as something to be excited about. The took them out of their own head and out of their own, like mine is just like, this will actually help somebody. Like I might as well

Speaker 4: (18:12)
sell just for that. Which leads me into the principle of when companies can change instead of taking all their guys to King Koon on a trip. You know how often it’s like, hey, if you sell a hundred this year, I’ll take you to cone. Yeah. Oh my gosh. Or if you do x, Y, Z, I’ll give you a trip to Vegas. And it’s like, that’s okay. But I think what, when we’ve experienced some of these trips where I took like a bunch of CEO’s to Mexico, right? I have the expert circle and I take, I coach all these CEOs and one of the days we connected with this lady named ens and we literally, she’s a hoarder and she at your house just shock full of stuff, like just insane. And I’m sitting there, I felt like I was in the show hoarders where I’m literally throwing bags and was she like, oh, she was going through every bag.

Speaker 4: (19:03)
She’s like I always like, I’m like, I’m pissing her off, dammit. But at the end of the day, her house looked so good and some of the stuff she hadn’t touched for 20 years, that’s what she was. She was just had two years where she was bedridden and she had cancer and she couldn’t move. Her sister just lost her leg. Now she’s sleeping with her. She’s lost her leg in blind. She’s diabetic. She now lives with her and they’re both these old cats and it’s like they can’t do anything. And to be able to take all these business owners and CEOs that make a lot of money. Yeah. And I’m like, guys, I know you thought Mexico. Here’s a, here’s, we’re throwing you for a whirlwind. We’re going to spend an entire day with this lady. Ynez and that’s cool. And literally like, it was so cool to watch how that set, that trip’s precedence. It created a new kind of vibe I guess you could say. And then the trip is like let’s get over ourselves and really get behind something together.

Speaker 5: (20:03)
Well it’s cool cause there’s nothing wrong with going on the fans vacation, but if you can mix it with a little bit of grounding and we had some like yeah you can do the goods, the fun stuff, you can spend money on yourself. You could also do something that helps them to spend a little money on them. And it just like he creates that balance in life. You’re like, oh a little more perspective. Like, and it it, I don’t know. For me I liked that a lot because it just, it like I said, it could shift the whole culture and that’s what’s cool with the reps is because their mind wasn’t thinking about themselves and they were, they were out selling, which is good for them, is good for the company. But they were thinking about like, Oh man, this could help someone else that’s present and just gives you a little more something, you know what I mean?

Speaker 5: (20:40)
And then like say then at the end of the day they’re like, I’m doing something worthwhile because I was listening to this and they’re talking about how like you used to be like the agricultural age, like you know, grow vegetables forever and then became the industrial age and there was the information age. They’re saying now it’s like the purpose age. Like people need to have a cause like, and you see with companies all the time now, well it’s how to hit millennials even that’s the, our generational amount of change the world. Exactly. We’re like, no, I want to choose world. I want to make a difference. And the cool thing is like we can, there’s so much wealth and everything, it’s like I’m not going to work for that company because they’re not doing anything important. But this one’s going to change the world. I call it like the toms, you know like Tom’s shoes.

Speaker 5: (21:21)
Like, cause I was like the first one I ever heard of her. Like I can buy these shoes and someone gets shoes. Like that’s cool. And then I like lots of companies are jumping on that but I don’t think it’s just to sell more. I think it’s literally, it’s like it gives them a reason to wake up in the morning and do something like make a huge impact more than just making another dollar, which is just like it drives our generation. Like you said, we want to change the world. How do you attract, use it as a recruiting tool. You use that as a retention tool. Use that. I mean I’m not trying to think business owner but I’m also, there’s so many good side effects with the wind side effect and I think people under undersea that they don’t leverage it in the PR and the win-wins, the way it doesn’t work is when you guilt dudes and do it, you like tripping like you had to do this or that you guilt them in or you tried to guilt the customer.

Speaker 5: (22:08)
Look, if you do this like yeah, when you try to guilt people into it, it doesn’t work. The second thing is when people don’t see any real impact. But if you can like see these videos and these stories or maybe even go on a trip with charity vision or whatever and like see the lives, it’s changing, it’s like that will make the difference. And the second if you have the buy in and you get like make it their choice and they started seeing it and they feel that like it’s intrinsically built into us to serve. Like we’re a communal being and we help our community, we feel like there’s like literally endorphins released. Like I feel good that I helped this person. And if you can connect that with the culture you’re creating, like that’s great because we don’t want to just go out there and make a bunch of machines that make money.

Speaker 5: (22:48)
We want to like make guys lives better and make our lives better and like help and when, when, when, when scenarios. And that’s like a way that they can connect while like I literally had a rep, dude, it’s funny, I had a rep today call me, he’s like, do this job as like changing my life. Like I’m number one in the company right now for rookies and I’ve never been number one at anything. Like thank you so much. Like this is so awesome. They’re like 10 years in. Like I get like a three spot. I’m like cool, whatever. Like I don’t even check my bank account like, but when I get a phone call like that, I’m like, yes. Like, like this is worth, they’re like, this is cool, you know? And so it’s cool to be able to like have that guy have that kind of culture and be able to do charity stuff.

Speaker 5: (23:31)
Cause I’ve never been able to go ever. He did. I find people, it’s like I’ve never been out of the country. Yeah. Or I’ve never done charity. Like, I just never grew up in a situation that they did that when he was saying, he’s like, dude, I’ve done a bunch of like dump things in my life. I want to like help other people. And I was like, dude, I’m on my way to go do this podcast, but how we’re going to be able to leverage this to help more people. And he was like, that’s so cool. Like he goes Jack about it, you know? And it’s like, it doesn’t just create a culture so I can like retain reps. Like we’re actually making a difference. Yeah. It’s real clever. It’s not a, it’s not a fake. Right, exactly. It’s so freaking awesome. We loved it last year and the fact that I was like, dude, if we can do this industry wide, that’s so sick.

Speaker 5: (24:11)
And then I dunno, like, so what I wanted to do too is like get everybody bought in. We’ll do the charity week. That same week, everybody in the industry, July 22nd through the 27th we’re all doing it and they can decide how much they’re going to donate per sale depending on their industry or whatever. Um, and, and then whoever like donates the most, we can recognize them and do the Trophon or whatever. Then it says you are the charity all started of the industry. Like show them how many people they cure blindness for whatever. And I’m like this is how many sales you got. Cool. This is how many people you gave sight to. Yeah. I mean think if you need a 2,500 bucks, that’s a thousand people that got sighted. Yeah. Crazy. And you know, or whatever the math is. I think it’d be 2,500 it could be a hundred, right?

Speaker 5: (24:58)
Yeah. Whatever that is. Yeah. So it’s 25 bucks, 2,500 bucks. Hundred people. Hundred people are going to have changes in their life forever and maybe even more. Two cause it’s only, it’s even cheaper to do blast is a lot of people come to these clinics to like get their eyes fixed and they’ve, they don’t qualify for the surgery but like a five or $10 pair of glasses would fix it. So charity, they just started doing that too. Which, and like saying again in America we’re just like, we take a regret, whatever. Like you just go to the store and you get caught with your prescriptions and you’re done. Yeah. But it needs to countries like it’s, that’s life changing. Even something so small. So it’s impactful. It’s super impactful. It’s cool.

Speaker 4: (25:35)
So we’re going to put the link on this, so it’s DVD con forward slash charity week and we will have more information. That site doesn’t work at this current moment, but it will be here shortly and we’ll be sending out stuff. So remember to, on the podcast comment I’m in and we’ll try to reach out to you, keep following us. So subscribe to our channels. We’re going to be putting more and more content out there in the tribe page on the podcast, things like that. Um, but also just, it’s something I feel like we can all rally behind and if you agree maybe like this or give it a thumbs up because I feel like this is something that

Speaker 5: (26:11)
hopefully people really embody his thing. See Opportunity in that worst case scenario, let’s say you do it, you don’t feel better about it. You don’t have buy in, guys don’t care. You only donate like 50 bucks. Still two people, two people can have Eisai now it’s crazy. Like that’s really cool. You know, so if anybody wants more information to like, uh, like I literally just, so I heard the podcast, I called charity, they just said, hey, I want to do this. And they’re like, okay, cool. Like we’ll take your money, whatever. Like didn’t even know what we were doing with door to door stop. And then after the summer’s over, I went and I met the president and the CEO and I like told him like, Hey, I want to be an ambassador for you guys. And they’re like, what’s that like? I’m like, I just want to go like spread the word.

Speaker 5: (26:54)
And, and you guys might’ve seen them at, we had a booth at the door to door con. You were like yeah, let’s do a free booth for the guys. Like you are bought in from the beginning, which is cool. Um, but uh, if you want to learn more about it, I, I did, they made me like a little email address. Just Joe j just Joe j@charityvision.net just for this event actually right now. So if guys want to learn more about and get more details, you can email me but just get on the door to door con side, right? Yeah. So what’s the URL going to be? Cause you were like, dude, you just told me this. Like oh we’ll create it on the website.com

Speaker 4: (27:28)
forward slash charity week. Charity Week is that, and that way every year we could maybe do an implement something like this and just kind of keep it going. And maybe we do multiple charity weeks a year. I don’t know. You know what I mean? Yeah. I think it’s something that I’ve been passionate about. I’ve been able to participate in. It’s something I get energy behind. So I’m like, yeah, let’s, let’s finally like launch this as an association, as a group. So why not

Speaker 5: (27:51)
talk about doing some before? But it’s like how do you get everybody in the industry to do like one trip? Like we talk about doing charity trips,

Speaker 4: (27:58)
which isn’t really realistic with everybody, but doing a charity week, this is perfect. You know what I mean? Okay. So I appreciate you putting this together and being the ambassador and being the kind of the advocate of this and honestly the support and, and trying to help others in a bigger way than just, yeah, I can donate my little 2 cents. But yeah, I would say, how do we get everybody to participate? So I appreciate you kind of being persistent with that and we’ll do it in the platform that you have like for, and there’s no other way to unify the door to door guy. So everybody do this and I can text a couple of my buddies like, Hey, let’s all do this. But it’s like this is way more impactful. Yeah, no, it’s cool. So appreciate you guys. If you feel inspired. Like I said, this is, we don’t get anything.

Speaker 4: (28:40)
This is really just sport, obviously the people that need it and um, but yeah, this is a wrap. I guess we’re not locked. One last piece of advice. I always ask people the same question. Like what advice would you give the tribe? If you could give anyone one piece of advice that could be non-related at all. Obviously guys, you heard he’s 10 years doing this managed successful team has been a top performer. It’s not like he’s just some nobody like Joe, we didn’t even dive into your story like that, which is okay, but like if you could give people one piece of advice, what would it be?

Speaker 5: (29:12)
He just popped that on me. But I would say honestly don’t under estimate the power of the impact of what you’re doing. Like you can make a huge difference. You know, we were talking about like, oh we do all these little things where sometimes we get so like narrow and like, oh trying to hit this number not to sell 200 that was like my big thing. I wanted to sell it to anyone I did. You could get like dialed in on these little things, but it’s like don’t underestimate what you could do with this job in impacting reps. Like we’re talking about impacting like charity projects, impacting your own personal life. Like just buy in fully that this job if you do buy in kid, like it can have a way greater impact than you ever imagined. Loving that soap in your vision man. Love that.

Speaker 5: (29:56)
Okay. You hear the first 10 at the DVD podcast, Joe? There we go. Yeah, I’m excited. So Hey, we’re gonna, we’re going to have an image. I want this to like go viral in the charity world. So we’re going to have like just a little like image. You can just share on Instagram and Facebook that has the dates and what we’re doing on it. So we’ll post that or copy and paste it. And just, let’s get it spread out over the next two. What I guess we have almost two months. Um, so that everybody’s just jack for that charity week when it comes in and it’ll be super dope. Love it. Okay. You guys are awesome. Thanks Sam.
