Do quit your day job. That’s today’s episode. Let’s dive in. Hey, everyone, I’m
Clayton Morris. I’m Natalie Morris. And welcome to the Investing
in Real Estate show. And on today’s
episode, we’re going to talk about how to know if you
are ready to, say, hey, man– is that what you say to that
man when you’re ready to leave? Hey, man. I don’t know. I don’t think so. Hey, man. You stick it to the man. Stick it to the man. I am ready to quit my day job
and take the plunge either in a new endeavor, or I’m going
to rely on the passive income that I’ve wanted to build or I
am building with my real estate investing portfolio, right? Exactly right. And this is timely,
because Clayton did just that this weekend. He quit his day job. He was the weekend anchor on
Fox News for Fox and Friends. And this Monday
was his last show. And this is a decision we took
many months to come around to, because I quit my day job
when our first son was born– well, we only have one
son, as far as I know. So that was something that–
it came a little easier for us, I guess, for me to quit my job. But then for you, that
took quite a while. And if you’ve listened
to this podcast, you’re very familiar with the
story of the freedom number and how Clayton came
up with it, because of this sort of insecurity
around his day job. So it finally came to a head
just this season, this summer. And we decided that it was time
for Clayton to let go of that. I don’t know what–
let go of that what? What’s a good idiom? Like, let go of that monkey. Safety net. Right. Monkey has nothing
to do with it. Let go of that monkey. Could that mean a thing? I don’t know. I mean, I guess if you let– if
you want to start it tonight, you can start it tonight
if you want, like, let go of that monkey. Or I don’t know. You what I mean, the phrase
let go of your peanuts. Who moved my cheese? Who moved my pigeon and
monkey at the same time? So anyway, you know,
we thought about it. This was a very– this was a big decision
for us as a family, because Clayton has been
at this job for 10 years. We were very comfortable
with his salary, but we didn’t necessarily
need it anymore. We’ve talked many
times about how we’ve gotten to our– how we
have arrived at our freedom number, how we have
made it such that we wouldn’t need another
contract for Clayton’s job. If he got fired, we’d be OK,
because we’ve planned for that. But it was an
emotional decision. It was a spiritual decision. It was a family decision, right. What do you want to
say about that, honey? Yeah, and you know, I had
lost my job many years ago, which was really in
many ways the impetus for me getting involved
in real estate investing. I had a company that I
worked for that decided not to renew my contract. And it was very hard on me. I’ve talked about
it on other shows. But it was very
difficult for me, because I sort of
got to rewatch what dad had gone through when
I was like 12 years old, when he lost his job. And it was like me being thrust
back into being 12 years old, again, now, you know,
when I lost my own job. Then the company
at the time wanted to go in a different direction. They wanted to sort of– every newscast
they wanted to do, they wanted to sort of do
if it bleeds, it leads. They wanted to kind of
lead off every newscast with murder and destruction. And they– They didn’t like your hair. And they brought me
in to have some fun. You know, they wanted to have
some fun in the morning show. And then I was like, I
don’t want to do murder. And so we just didn’t
see eye-to-eye. And they just decided
not to renew my contract, but then I was like, holy
smokes, I’m out of a job. I have no safety net. I have nothing at
all to show for it. You know, I barely had
any money in the bank. And I was asked to basically– sayonara, see you. And you realize
in those moments, like, hey, this company
controls my destiny, like this boss, this
jackass in the office, this little fat guy
with this little punk– OK, you don’t have
to get personal. Well, you know,
he was kind of a– anyway– You know, I mean,
in broadcasting, you lose your job, and it’s
super personal, right? Because they don’t
like how you look. And it’s the only job in
which that’s totally, OK, like she doesn’t have
the right look anymore. She’s you know, right. And this gravelly
little dude, like, he’s going to control my
destiny, you know. And so I just vowed
then many years ago, whatever it was 10 years
ago, that I was never going to let that happen to me again. And so I started– it took
me a while to kind of figure out how to put all of
those pieces in place with real estate investing. But I knew at the time
that real estate investing was the vehicle. I just didn’t understand the buy
and hold strategy and passive income. It took me a few years
to figure that out, and once I did then
sky was the limit. So yeah, that’s accurate. When we met, Clayton had
just got the job at Fox. I had just moved to
New York, because I was working for CBS at the time. And so I worked
Monday through Friday. And Clayton worked the weekends. And so he was always, during
the middle of the week, while I was at work,
up to some kind of entrepreneurial pursuit. He was trying to start podcasts. He was doing any number
of really passive income strategies, because
he understood that he wanted to
have passive income, but he didn’t quite
understand how. And he had just got
burned in real estate. He’s told that story. You can find on several podcasts
if you just scroll back. So he wasn’t quite there. Well, you know,
flash-forward, 10 years later, and now it’s time. And we ran the numbers. And you know, what, we ran them
over, and over, and over again. And even then,
Clayton was nervous. Because the other day,
before his last show, he’s like, you know, there’s
like some nerves in me. And I was like,
honey, I’ve showed you these numbers backwards
and forwards each way until Tuesday. And you know that
we’re ready for it, but there’s old code that exists
inside of you that thinks I need to be a paycheck employee. I need to have a job, right. It’s like you’re a
character in Westworld and you’re the
last season’s model that has this programming
inside of you. And it’s still not
completely broken. And so what I want to do today
is talk a little bit about that and continue to talk
about that, but also talk about how we
ran the numbers and how we knew 110% that
we were going to be OK. Right. And you know, your
dad called me today. I don’t know if I told you this. No, you didn’t. And he’s been an entrepreneur
since he was 17 years old. And he’s an investor with us. And he’s his owned
passive income. He’s had rental
properties, which have been a huge driver for him,
and his freedom, and his life. But something he said to me on
the phone today was, he said, I’ve been an entrepreneur
since 17 years old. So I’ve never had that
sort of paycheck mentality, working for somebody else and
having that paycheck mentality. You’re coming from a world
where you’ve built up an amazing company, an amazing
portfolio of rental properties and passive income. And now you’re kind of–
you’re going from this world to that world. So I can’t really put myself
in your shoes in that regard, but I will say, he’s like,
there’s nothing like it. And he said, there is
some of that old cruft that will exist in your brain
about this sort of thing. And so you know, it was
an interesting moment, an interesting thought. And I hadn’t really thought
about that old code, that old computer code that you
need to work for somebody else. You know, it’s the rich
dad, poor dad philosophy. It’s the way that you build
wealth is you get a job. You get a raise every few years. You put a little money away
for retirement in a 401k plan, and then you hope you’re OK. You cross your fingers. But that’s the old code that
exists in so many of us. Right. And so when the numbers
tell you you’re safe and your passive income
exceeds your active income, you know you’re safe. But there’s still
something inside of you that says, but
what if, what if, what if. And I mean, I can’t really
tell you for certain that one is safer than the next. Who knows what your job
security is in your day job. And who knows what kind of
passive investments you’ve got. You could have passive
investments in penny stocks. And then, yeah, maybe
your day job is better. But we feel very secure in the
types of passive investments that we have chosen,
which are single family rental real estate. And we feel like
there were always be an economy in which families
need to live in these homes. And so we feel like that
was more safe than say, you know, stay in a broadcast
job, where in 10 years they think, oh, that guys
too old or that guys too– I don’t know, his jokes
relating to Nintendos are not hitting on the
new audience or whatever. Hey, those are great jokes. Right. I don’t know all the
reasons that they can cut you in broadcast. You gain too much weight. You, I mean, it’s brutal. It’s brutal business. Ratings. Yeah– I mean– and who knows–
and, you know, they run out of money or, god,
cable channels, suffer and go out of
business, and they cut shows. We saw NBC Sports, that
whole channel just collapsed. A couple of my friends
went to work for them. So there is no– and you know
what, at the end of the day, I had somebody who
just told me that they had a friend who was 17 years
in the broadcasting field. She was an anchor. And they just– one day, they
just said bye-bye, we’re done. And she’s like, oh my god,
I’ve tied my entire identity to this job of doing
broadcast television, and it’s gone in a poof. Right. Yeah, we have
identified single family residential real estate
even in a down economy is a safe and really
smart investment strategy. Why? Because in those blue collar
hardworking neighborhood folks work. They still need a place to
live, even in a down economy. Because in a down
economy, it’s even way more difficult to get a
mortgage on a property. So people either
rent, or they buy. There’s no in between. They rent, or they buy. And for those individuals, I
want to own those properties that they’re renting. Right. Yeah. So let’s talk about
some of the things that you put in place,
some of the spreadsheets, some of the data, and how we can
help other people who are maybe thinking about doing
something similar, something similar to this. OK, because I think that most
people have this assumption that like, oh, you work in TV. They have six-figure salaries. You must be fine. But, hey, I think
a lot of people who listen to this podcast
have six-figure salaries. And they know that
your life expands to meet the salary
that you’ve got. So it’s not like,
oh, I still live the same way I did in
college so now I’ve got all this extra
income to go boating. And go to– I don’t know,
Florida for spring break or whatever it is
you want to do. So you know we have
a family of five now. We have high expenses,
even though we try and keep certain expenses low. It’s still expensive to live
in New Jersey and raise five– we have we don’t have five kids. Five kids. We have three kids. Something’s going on
here, because you think we have an extra son somewhere. And you think we five kids. You have something
you want to tell me? No, I don’t. But we have a family of five. So it’s not just the fact
that a big paycheck is enough. And no matter what, how
big your paycheck is, if and when your
paycheck eventually ends, you want to make
sure that you’ve got income that’s coming
towards you on a regular basis that you can spend for your
meals out, for your meals in, for your regular expenses. I was telling Clayton
the other night, I had seen a 60
Minutes piece years ago on Vanessa
Redgrave, the actress. And this woman has–
what does she have, two Oscars, several nominations? No, she has one Oscar,
four nominations. Right– I mean, very,
very accomplished actress. She can’t probably not walk down
the street without, at least, one person even now
recognizing her. And I think it was Morley
Safer was like, why don’t you– why do you keep working? You’re working on Broadway. You’ve got this movie. And she’s like, I have to. I have to pay my bills. And I was like, have
you managed your money very well if you
have been working for 40 years in Hollywood,
marquee movie titles, and you still have
to be working? So even these really
accomplished people don’t understand that you
have to have passive income. You have to buy assets that are
going to continue to perform, own performing assets. Exactly. I hear from doctors all the
time that will write to me and say, something you
said on the podcast really resonated with me. I’ve been in school
for 13 years. You know, I’ve been working
in the medical field, and I’ve never managed to
create and add net assets and cash flowing
assets to my life. I’ve just been so busy. I’ve been working. I have some good
savings, but I don’t have anything that’s
truly providing a high ROI and adding to my net
worth that can cash flow for the rest of my life. So even doctors– I mean, we hold them up in
such high regard, right? Right. We’re not taught this. And so no fault of
their own, we’re going to try to
help you get there. Our dentist told me that he had
like in all of dental school he had something like one or two
classes on business, you know, how to manage your money. They are just taught
the trade, but not how to be successful in the
business of that trade. So I think that’s probably
pretty common for doctors. They just don’t– they
don’t understand that. They know how to
fix your spleen, but they don’t know how to
have a performing asset. So anyway, OK, I’m
going to give you three steps then to
evaluate if and when you’re ready to quit your day
job and stick it to the man. All right. OK, step number one, we’ve
talked about several times before is make sure your
balance sheet is up to date, so your family balance sheet. If you look at episode 106,
with Clayton and I, that’s from all the way
back in January, how to balance your
liabilities versus assets, that is where we taught you how
to make a family balance sheet. And we do it– we used to
do it once or twice a year. Now I do it almost
every other month, because these numbers change. We acquire rental real estate
at a pretty rapid rate. So I want to know how our
net worth has changed. What are we worth overall? OK, step two is either
create or go to your budget. What is your monthly budget
that you have done in order to come to your freedom number? What do you need every
month to survive, and what do you need to thrive? OK, most of the time,
you’ve done this. You know this. This is why– this is how
you choose where to live, because you know what
kind of mortgage or rent you can afford. This is how you choose what
school to send your kids to, how to choose your
cell phone plan. You know what you can afford. So you know what
you need to survive. And then we added
10% to that number, because we don’t
want to just survive. We want to thrive. We don’t want to say,
oh, we can’t go out that night, because we
should eat in and save money. Is that– I mean– Right. We want to take that weekend
trip, that little get away. So we pad up by 10%. So again, if you’re new to this
podcast and many of you are– we know we have a lot of new
listeners tonight on the show– please download our
freedom cheat sheet. It’s three pages. It’s free. And you sit down with
your partner, your spouse and go through it. And you’ll figure
these things out. And just sit down
with your laptop, sit down with your iPad, and
go through your expenses. And you’re going to discover
some things in there like, oh, I’m paying for a Hulu
subscription, and a Netflix subscription, and this
random iTunes subscription, and these are the things. You’re going to discover some
things in your monthly bills that you didn’t anticipate,
but it’s a great lesson. So it’s easy to download
that cheat sheet. Just Go to our web
site morrisinvest.com, M-O-R-R-I-S invest.com
It’ll pop right up, and you can download it. OK, that was step two. OK. And then step three is to
list your passive income. List out what you get every
month from each investment. So do you have gold? Do you have stocks
that perform dividends, that pay you dividends? What do you get from those
dividends, $9 a month? I don’t think I’ve ever
got a dividend that was bigger than say like $88. So for us, all of
our performing assets look like this, 123 Main
Street, 456 34th Street. So they’re all addresses
and how much we make. We also have some notes that
we’ve issued to either friends or family for them to invest. And so those notes
are performing at a minimum of 6% to 8%. So what do we actually
get from those? Again, we don’t think about
when we get that chunk of money back. We’re thinking about how we
add to our passive cash flow. So when I actually get that
$20,000 I lent to somebody back, I’m not
quite as concerned. I want that $20,000
coming at me every month so that we can spend it. So I ended up listing
this as a whole number. For instance, you
know, I’m just looking at a property we have here on
Adams Street, rents for $800. I didn’t go in and say,
well, I’ll take 40% of that, because I’m budgeting
for taxes and such. I just wanted to list
it out in whole numbers. So at the bottom, I’ll
see what we get in total. But then I know that
expenses come out of those, because I’m estimating
right now what we’re getting, like are we close to
our freedom number. And I just felt like that
was a little bit complicated to take out all that. I’d rather take it out
of the whole number, like when I have all of the
assets listed right now– should I use real numbers? Do you want me to? Sure. OK. So at this point,
when I have all– I have 38 of our assets
listed, all 38 passive assets. And they are all cash flowing
a total of $20,603.49. So I can take out, you
know, a certain percentage of that to make sure
that I’m budgeting for taxes and expenses. I know 10% is going to
the property manager. Nevertheless, you
know, the same is true for if we looked
at your paycheck. You were making, let’s say– you actually weren’t even
taking home $20,000 a month. So we knew what your
salary was and if you divide that by 12, you’re
making roughly the same amount. But again, the government’s
taking a bigger chunk of that than they’re taking from
your passive income, medical insurance,
all that stuff. Obviously, now we have to
pay for medical insurance, because we’re on our own. Does that make sense? So what I’m doing is comparing
this salary to that salary, and then you know that things
chip away at those things, and you can budget for that. I have other ways that
I budget for the taxes, and the property management,
and the other expenses. But what I wanted
to know and what I wanted to present
to you to say, look, you need to break the
code that says in your head that you need this paycheck,
because the numbers don’t support that. Right. Once you start– and I got an
email this morning, actually, from an investor, a wonderful
investor who’s worked with us for about– I think, about a year
and a half now two years. And she said she
was able to quit. She had two jobs. And her goal was to get down
to one job with passive income. And she was able to this past– she was able to this past
August quit that other job, because of financial
freedom and because working towards financial
freedom, which is amazing. So it can be done. And if you know your
numbers, then you can start to position yourself. And once you see it
coming in like every month and you start to see that
passive income hitting your account, it starts– you
know, it’s just a game-changer. I mean, it really is. I’ve had to take sort of
a deep breath about it and think, wow, OK, so if
we’re doing that every month, we’re consistently
bringing in cash flows. We add additional
rentals to our portfolio, and grow them, and grow
them, and grow them. That’s not only
cash that we can– provides for my
family, but then it can also then take the
next step and continue to pull in that passive
income that cash flow in order to buy additional properties. And that’s how the snowball
effect really begins to happen. Taking $20,000, $30,000 a
month from your passive income from your properties, you’re
able to buy a new property every other month, basically. Right. So you know, there’s two
things that I want to address, the conventional wisdom of
when to quit your day job, because I used to read
all of these books about how to know you
can make it on your own as a freelance writer. And every book that
talks about incorporating yourself and working for
yourself says that you should save up six months of
living expenses in some kind of savings account so
that you’ll be safe if you stop making money or
you can’t support yourself, And then, also,
stay in your day job until your passive job
surpasses your regular paycheck. Well, OK, you did the
second thing right. And the first thing, make
sure that you have enough cash for expenses, we did that too. We made sure Clayton,
in our joint account, he called this one account
treasure chest, you know, when you name your online
bank accounts in the app. So we did. We built up the treasure chest
to make sure that we were safe. So we’re good on that front. And then they also
say to make sure that you diversify your
portfolio when you have these passive revenue streams. And we diversify by
different neighborhoods that we invest in and
different cities and then, again, different asset classes. So we don’t really
invest in multi-family. We don’t– we have maybe
one or two duplexes, but most of the way we diversify
is either a different city or a different asset,
such as these notes. And the notes exist
not only in our 401k– well, no we don’t
have those anymore– in our self-directed
Roth IRAs rather and as well as in the LLC bank
accounts that we own as well. Yeah, it’s amazing. It is amazing, right? I mean, this is a
big week for us, because for Clayton to actually
take this big leap of faith– yeah, you know, it was big. It was big. I still am kind of
reeling from it. And you know, last night,
I was thinking of writing a blog post about this. I might still, because I
haven’t had a glass of wine. And I’m still a little
lucid, even though it’s 8:30. Usually, by this
time of day I’m done. I’m like– I don’t
know what I’m doing. With the 500 emails I’ve gone
through today and 80 phone calls, I already poured
myself a glass of wine. I worked hard today. You did. My first official day
sort of solo, you know. I mean, Clayton, I
don’t think there’s ever a day where you can say,
I didn’t work hard today. You know, Clayton
is a workaholic. But what was I going to say? Oh, you know,
there’s a part of you that’s really tied to your
career in an ego-type way. And I don’t mean ego like
that person is an egomaniac and you can’t stand them. I mean, the ego part
of you that lives in a state of perpetual
fear that you won’t be safe. There’s this part of your
ego that holds on to things that it thinks will keep
you safe at the expense of your dreams a lot of
times, at the expense of your own freedom, at
the expense of your ability to grow personally. And you know,
Clayton in this job, it was an amazing job for
him at 30, but now he’s 40. And it was time. He had he had grown as
much as he was going to in that network, in that space. He had done as much as he could
take about with daily news and all of that stuff. And so it was time for
him to grow as a person. And you hope that in any job– you know, no one wants to be
stuck in a job for 10 years, even if it’s an exciting job. And so last night, I was so
excited when I went to bed. I was like he did it. That’s amazing. I’m so proud of him. But I woke up with my mind
at full force at 1:00 AM, like just, boing,
my eyes opened. And I was thinking, and I was
thinking about the things that were really comfortable. I’m very used to being
Mrs. Clayton Morris. I’m very used to saying, oh,
my husbands a news anchor. I’m used to the fact
that people will give you like fancy things
for Christmas gifts and that you know fancy
people, like I don’t know, Karl Rove Who? I don’t know. Stan Lee. I know William Shatner. Yeah, right. OK, Karl Rove not a great one. Oh, no, he does– yeah, he sends us a nice
Christmas card every year. So I don’t know–
like all of that stuff felt very comfortable to me. And I could literally
feel that ego that was attached to it
suffocating and shriveling, until it was just gone, and I
didn’t wake up with it anymore. So everyone, even if you
don’t have a job that’s fancy, even if you’re– I don’t know, you’re
an accountant who doesn’t get this like
beautiful sendoff in your day job [INAUDIBLE],, there’s
still a part of your ego that’s going to be
starved with this notion that you can make
it on your own. And if you don’t face it,
it will be very painful, or it can be– I found that
experience very joyful. Like, I was sleeping
next to Clayton, who is sawing logs, because it
was the last time that he’ll wake up at 3 AM. And I was just like
I’m OK to feel this. I felt really good
about it, even though I knew that it
was this part of me that needed to atrophy. Do you feel something like that? Well, definitely. I tied so much of my self-worth
to this idea of a job, you know, of a paycheck and
somebody else’s opinion of me, and it’s hard. Once you commit to shedding
what other people think of you, once you commit to
that, you know, your ego is going to fight for it, right. Your ego is going to be like,
no, I’m drowning come back. Feed me. You’re not safe. You need this. Yeah, you’re not safe. Feed me, feed me. And once you can realize you
can hear that other voice inside of your head
and you realize that it’s a bunch of crap and
that you’re going to be safe and you are going to be totally
fine, then it’s liberating. Yeah. And that’s one of
the reasons I carried around my iPad for
the last few weeks after Clayton gave his
notice, because if I saw any kind of
fear coming on I’d be like look at the spreadsheet,
the spreadsheet’s honey, it’s OK. Look at the spreadsheets. She was like, yeah, you’re
like a nurse in an ward, like checking me in. Yeah, it was just
like, oh, he needs 20 CCs of Microsoft Excel. Put it in. So the lesson here is
that in the same way I guess I was sort of
reminded of The Alchemist, the book The Alchemist. You and I talked about that
a number of episodes ago. I don’t know, it just kind
of stuck out to me today, and I’m not sure why. But this idea of this journey,
this sort of soul journey being from a place of fear is
never going to get you there. And you know, going to those
places where they’re authentic and they mean– I don’t know– what’s
the best way to say that? OK, well, I looked it up. It’s episode 55 from actually
a year ago, September of 2016, is the Alchemist’s Guide
to Real Estate Investing. And I think the
main lesson there is that you have to let go of
what you find safe in order to follow your path
and listen to the signs and make sure that, yeah,
that the ego mind is out of the picture
so that you can be very clear with your
intention to follow the signs. So it’s kind of funny
that that seed was planted when we did that episode. And we both read that book,
and we did a podcast episode about it. And we heard from
a lot of investors. We heard a lot from
a lot of people who listen to that show that
said they thought that that was a really powerful episode. It’s funny how you can kind
of plant the seeds then, and then they come to fruition– Right, yeah. –a year later. I mean, we’ve been
planning for this probably our whole marriage. Because, you know, I lost
my job when we got married. And then we weren’t
really afraid back then. We still had yours,
and then we’re like, well, let’s figure this out. Let’s figure out
how to make sure we have great passive income. But for me, my ego mind had
to die a slow long death, because I was kind of
one foot in, one foot out of traditional broadcasting. And to come to my role
here with Morris Invest was also a slow burn. So I had a long time,
whereas for you, you just decided to pop the
balloon, which if I must admit your ways better. My way was more painful. You’ve got to rip the Band-Aid. Yeah. You’ve just got to cut it loose. So anyway, so that’s
how we do it folks. So you want to sum
this up for everyone? I guess, in summary– you know, you have it
within you to build the life that you want, to
have some kind of– and we’re not– our lives
are not like, oh, great, we’ve got the passive
income, and now we’re going to do nothing, right. So what our goal is now
is to grow our business, help other people find
investment properties that fit their needs. We’re matching
investor to property so that business in and of

with us if you are ready to pick up your
first rental property or your 10th rental property. It was amazing,
actually, after the show, because I said on
the air, I told everyone what I was doing in my
departure speech and just said, you know, I want
to empower people. That’s my goal. I want to help people
build passive income, and that’s what my company does. And I want to
focus more on that. And I got so many
emails from people that were like, I had no idea
you did this I didn’t know you had a company. I didn’t know any of that. I own two rental properties,
and I want to buy 10 more. And you know, I’ve been– I’ve been a rental investor for
many years, and that’s great. And so it was amazing to hear. I mean, I guess, you just
don’t think about it. You know, you have
a certain role. And you’re on that show,
you never really reach out and talk about it. Right. But then anybody who comes
from that show to listen to us or watch us on this
podcast is going to be so disappointed
that you’re not like climbing walls and
throwing eggs in a plastic body suit and stuff. Should we add that
to the podcast? I don’t know. I mean, I’m doing wacky
and wild stuff now. I’m doing hot air balloon races. No, you know, what I’m doing– I mean, what should we do really
like fun up of the podcast, right? I’m all ears. We don’t have any elephants
that we ride around. There’s no barbecuing
on a plaza. We should do like– maybe next time,
we’ll do our podcast in front of our barbecue. Right. I’ll juggle. It’s National Donut day. Right. Well, sometimes I used
to joke that Clayton used up all his like funny CPU
on the show for other people, because when he comes
home, I’m like– He’s so serious,
and he’s working. You have to make me laugh. Yeah, just make me
laugh sometimes. Yesterday, actually, he was
cracking jokes left and right in my kitchen. And I was like, who is this guy? I think maybe you freed
up some of that capacity. I did. But maybe you can share it more
with our podcast listeners. The comedian in
chief is back home. They’ll be like, this
guy is not serious. Right. God, I thought this
guy was so serious. He’s a clown. All right, so thanks, everyone. Thanks for downloading
