Before we get into the topic of entrepreneurism, we start off our podcast talking about Poway News including Anna Vaus making her debut at the Grand Ole Opry, the City of Poway’s tight budget, Poway Unified School District’s continued financial irresponsibility and unwillingness to heed good advice.  We explore the Democratic Presidential race and the upcoming debates.  We talk about the recent Padres surge.  We tip a hat to two Pirates: Poway High grad Kevin Newman, and Grossmont High grad Joe Musgrove, and his Poway pitching coach Dominick Johnson.  I share my thoughts on the NBA Draft and talk about my new streaming interest Deadwood.

Then we get into the idea of entrepreneurism as an option for young people.  It doesn’t always need to be about finding a job you hate for a low wage.  It can instead be about doing work you enjoy, building important career skills, making more money than you thought was possible and having control over your schedule.

We also talk about Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Hertz, Poway Road, Prefumo Canyon Rd, Airbnb, paralysis analysis, overthinking, Poway Performing Arts Center, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Andrew Yang, #YangGang, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Franmil Reyes, Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado, Eric Lauer, Logan Allen, Eric Hosmer, Kirby Yates, Joey Lucchesi, Chris Paddack, Jalen McDaniels, Zylan Cheatham, Aztecs, Amazon Prime, UltimateGuy.com, minimum wage, gig economy, internships, dream job, occupational licensing, Connor Boyack, P. Diddy, L. Tom Perry, Libertas Institute and The Tuttle Twins.

Closing quote from Connor Boyack retweeting a rapper quoting an apostle: “One of the greatest weaknesses in most of us is our lack of faith in ourselves.”
