all right up next we got trend Evan
00:02
Fenton yeah all right so we see what
00:04
trends got hey Russell Trent Evans here
00:07
my question is about running in my brain
00:10
the agency while giving back to
00:12
nonprofits I know you’re very passionate
00:15
as am I about my church and my
00:17
relationship with the Lord and I give
00:19
back to causes associated with that so
00:22
my question is how do you balance that
00:24
in your own life and in your business
00:25
being able to give back to those causes
00:28
while at the same time being able to
00:31
efficiently run your business and in my
00:33
situation my practice you know what kind
00:38
of pitfalls would you recommend looking
00:40
out for any suggestions on how to manage
00:42
it best that type of thing
00:44
Thanks awesome trenton awesome questions
00:47
so a couple things because you’re a lot
00:49
to you a lot of times people get into
00:51
business and they hear stories like that
00:53
Thomas you dude who’s like gives the
00:54
parachutes to everyone they make and
00:56
they fall they’re romantic about that
00:58
which is cool but then on top of that
01:00
such like the romance how cool it is
01:02
like they think like oh I’m gonna do
01:03
this thing is can get marketing hook and
01:05
we’re going to people to buy and all
01:06
kind of stuff and like I don’t know you
01:08
but I just feel dirty to me like it so
01:11
yeah that’s a tongs with a lot people do
01:13
I like their i K and buy let me give
01:15
money to charity that way it’s gonna go
01:17
viral like that’s kind of dirty like so
01:19
a couple things first off what I say is
01:21
the most important way to serve through
01:24
through money like things like that is I
01:27
believe in what we call tithe right tied
01:30
this 10th attempt 10% right so it’s like
01:32
10% of anything that I make not like
01:34
growth because I don’t even make 10% the
01:37
graphic company right but like I take
01:40
home money and the 10% and I tie that
01:42
and that’s secret like I don’t share
01:43
that people know what I’m doing with
01:44
like it’s it’s given to things and it’s
01:47
I’m a big believer like if you talk
01:49
about like a cause you’re giving to like
01:51
that’s your reward right like I’m a big
01:52
believer in that so 10% want to make
01:54
disappears and it goes to what I believe
01:56
and I never talk about that it’s just
01:58
it’s just gone and that’s that’s the big
02:01
thing number to talk about tie down your
02:03
personal time like I put in I try to put
02:05
in 10 to my time into personal projects
02:07
not so much money but like my time into
02:10
things where I’m helping serve causes I
02:12
believe in
02:13
because money is one thing but time is
02:14
different right so that’s another thing
02:16
number three if you do decide to some
02:18
part of your company for example we
02:21
world teacher aid right at all the phone
02:23
hacking live events we raise my April
02:24
tea trade I’m going to be going to Kenya
02:26
for my third time in October with our
02:28
nine or ten of our funnel hackers which
02:29
is really exciting and so we figured out
02:32
a way to tie that into the business
02:33
where every time some builds a funnel
02:34
they goes live we give a dollar to
02:35
Realty trade and then our advance raise
02:37
money so we’re I think we’ve raised on
02:38
half a million dollars or so for tha
02:39
build a bunch of schools and I talked
02:41
about that but I also rise alike because
02:44
I’m talking about like that’s my
02:45
blessing like I don’t think the lawyers
02:46
can give you any more blessings for that
02:48
because I’m talking about it so I know
02:49
that so that’s just kind of my personal
02:51
beliefs on on the topic um but I’m also
02:54
might really like number against using
02:56
it from marketing angle but it’s also
02:57
like it’s not like them I don’t know I
02:59
don’t feel comfortable or clean like
03:00
using that as a marketing over to
03:01
something we do and we talk about it
03:03
because it’s a cool thing it inspires
03:05
people and it gets other people to want
03:06
to give and want to serve and it’s an
03:08
inspiration thing so I think a lot of
03:09
times like that’s why tiny from that
03:11
into your business is good because it
03:13
helps your your company or your culture
03:15
like your people to go into something
03:16
but also don’t do it at the the risk of
03:19
Aiki of hurting your business I was
03:22
listening it was a shark tank episode
03:23
anti last year Henry who was but someone
03:26
came and they pitched the sing words I
03:28
get to get a charity thing and
03:29
everyone’s all excited and ahem rivers
03:31
cubital is Lori Grenier I suppose Lori
03:33
and my hammer who was one of the Sharks
03:35
basically came back and said look in
03:37
your business you need to be as greedy
03:39
as humanly possible so you can get all
03:42
the money out and then you can be as
03:44
charitable as you want with the money
03:45
you make but like if you’re tying into
03:46
the business like businesses go under
03:48
because they’re taking money off the top
03:50
to give to charities things like that
03:51
and like businesses business like if the
03:53
business is that if the owners not pay
03:54
it the business would work whole thing
03:56
collapses you have to be greedy selfish
03:58
capitalists in your business but then
04:00
when you get the money out then you can
04:01
be charitable on that side that’s and I
04:03
kind of believe in that so anyway I hope
04:05
that kind of helps
04:06
that’s my beliefs my thoughts and hope
04:08
that that helps you out right now good
