Almost everything has been commoditized. The new knowledge tool is in your hands on a daily basis. I’m talking about the smartphone. There is so much to learn out there and all you have to do is Google it. You can take on-line courses from private companies or from schools and colleges. Information is out there for the taking. Take advantage of this. Thanks for your time. Enjoy.
Guys, thanks for joining the Bravo Audio [SP] Show. My name is Rene Aguirre. I'm the owner of Bravo Concealment. Thank you so much for tuning in, for listening. For all you guys out there on...I'm looking at the Bravo cam, for all you guys out there on YouTube, even if you're listening guys, we're shooting this a little bit differently because we're updating the Mac and so I'm speaking into a boom mic here but I'm sure that you guys are gonna be able to hear me just fine. Let me just make sure it's recording. It's recording. Thank you so much for joining the Bravo Audio Show.
Today I wanna talk about how everything has been commoditized, and it's gonna be a quick...this is almost like a rant, guys. It's gonna be quick. Everything is commoditized. Everything is on this phone right here. Whatever it is that you wanna learn, you can go on the phone and you can learn it. You can do that. We're living in a time right now, it's so awesome because you know, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 20 years ago, we didn't have none of this, right? And so this phone can allow you to gain so much knowledge and if you apply it then that's just power, guys. It's just power. I heard somebody say, "Man, if you wanna go to heaven, you really don't wanna go to heaven because in America, there's a church on every single street corner."
If you don't wanna be successful, you really don't wanna be successful because with this tool that's so powerful, this iPhone is way more powerful than what we used to land the astronauts on the moon. I'm telling you guys, awesome technology that you just...we've never had ever, ever. I mean, you can...I can go home right now, it's gonna be 7:00, I've been here for 12 hours. I can go home, go eat, do my exercise, and still hustle on the side for another three or four hours because all I need is about 6 hours of sleep. My dad couldn't do that. I mean, guys, I'm telling you, there's so much today in this day and age that you can do simply on a computer, simply on a cell phone. And forget the computer because you can't take it with you, on an iPad or on a cell phone. That's all you really need.
Almost everything has been commoditized, guys. And yeah, I know, well, I'm not gonna get a certificate, I need to go to college, fine, if you want a certificate, you wanna hang it up on the wall, go to college. But I'll tell you this, that thing is impressive. It'll take you from zero to hero if you know how to use it and let me explain how. You learn stuff, you apply it, you go out there, you can get a job somewhere because you've applied it and you've already put it on the field. You field tested what it is that you've learned so you can go out there and you can impress people. Because I'll tell you this, a diploma is not as impressive as it used to be 30 years ago, 20 years ago, even 10 years ago. I've hired so many people here at Bravo Concealment and I rarely look at, you know, what it is that you've achieved in the educational system. I really don't. What I look for is if I cut you, man, are you gonna bleed Bravo? You know, I look for people that commit, I look for people that understand what it is that I need and that can do it. I don't care where you learned it, you could have learned it in college, that's fine, but if you learned it on the computer and then you went out there and you worked for a company for peanuts for a year, you grinded it out, now you have this awesome resume because you did so much at that company, then you come work here at Bravo or you go somewhere else and then you just start scaling, you just start scaling, you just start moving up.
Guys, don't sit there and tell, "Oh, a year, I'm not gonna work for a year for peanuts." Guys, you go through college for four years, and I'm not saying that college is bad, but there's certain situations where to me, it doesn't really matter. In my industry, it doesn't really matter a whole lot. And what you've applied. Again, I did a podcast about this, knowledge is key but applied knowledge is powerful, man. Powerful. And so, it's all there, guys. It's for the taking. It's for the taking.
Charlie Munger said this, Charlie Munger is Warren Buffett's business partner, two of the most wealthiest men on the face of the earth, Charlie Munger said this, "If it wasn't for the stupidity of the world, we wouldn't be so rich." And that's kinda like just sticking it to you and you can't hate the guy for it because there's a lot of truth to that, guys. There is a lot of truth to that. But it's kinda sticking it to you, it's kinda like, you know, Steve Jobs said it best and I've said it before. He said, "When you grow up, you're gonna realize that the world is run by people no more smarter than you." Yeah, maybe they took something and applied it, maybe they have this sense of commitment that's more than yours, and I get it, there's genetics involved. Charlie Munger, Warren Buffett, you know, there's aptitude there, I get it, I understand that. But you don't have to be a Charlie Munger, you don't have to be Warren Buffett, you don't have to be a Steve Jobs. You can go out there, find stuff and apply it and take it to the next level. You can use that as leverage and you can take it to the next level. I'm telling you guys, it's out there for the taking.
I've learned so much, so much on social media. I've learned so much on taking courses online, whether they're free or if I have to pay for them. So much information is out there, guys, I'm telling you. You just need to sit down and you need to take it in and get rid of that mindset where, "It's just a scam, man, they're just trying to scam you." Dude, forget that. I've said it before, you get scammed every single day and you don't even know it, man. Stop that. Go out there, learn something new every single day, and where do you go, there. It used to be the library, now, it's here, right here. That's where you go, guys. Again, everything has been, for the most part, mostly all things have been commoditized.
Now, yes, if you need a mentor, you need to find a mentor, I wouldn't be surprised if you could get mentored on a phone. You probably could. Guys, I'm telling you, it's out there, man. It's all in your fingertips. Guys, it's right here. This thing is so powerful. Did I mention that this thing is more powerful than the computers we used to land on the moon? Crazy. It's out there, go take it, stop it with the excuses and, you know, I don't have...everybody has a cell phone, everybody. Even people that don't have a job have a cell phone. Or a smart phone. Let me just say this, it's a smart phone. Everybody has a smart phone. Go out there, use it, utilize it, learn something, apply it, scale it, take it to the next level. Go out there, work for peanuts, man, and then in a couple years, it's just gonna start scaling and you're just gonna start growing. And it all can start there. It all can start here. There's a lot of information here, guys. I am telling you. There's so much information here. And not everything is gold, but not everything has to be gold. I read books, 300-page books, 200-page books, I've read them. I'll take five, four, three, two, sometimes one piece of golden nugget from that book, but that one piece, man, can change your game. I'm telling you that one piece can change your game.
I gotta go. I told you it was gonna be a rant, it was gonna be quick, but I felt like I needed to say this. I've been talking about this a lot and I don't know why, but I feel like I need to talk about this, about how everything is out there, it's for the taking, you just need to just put it in your mind and just go out there and take it, man. Take it. Now, this is for the people that wanna take it to the next level. This is for the people that wanna scale it and wanna, you know, whatever it is. It's not just in business, it could be you job, you wanna take it, you know, you wanna get that better position, there's information out there that can help you how to do that. You know, parenting, homeschooling, education, you know, learn, see if it is right for you to go to college. If you're gonna go spend $200,000 for four years or 300,000 or whatever it is, make sure that you do your due diligence and find out if it's worth it or not. You know, people go and buy a car and they go out there and they're like, "Oh I'm..." They're spending $30,000 on a car, well, I don't know what's up with that, or you ask questions. But for some reason, we're led blindly into education because oh, well, that's what everybody does. It doesn't matter what everybody does. Is it gonna work for you? That's what you need to know. Got out there and find out if it's gonna work for you, guys.
