[02:03] Background of sam parr

[03:20] Introduction to Air Bed and Breakfast

[05:05] Sam Parr introduces the company “The Hostile” that he started and where it is now

[06:35] We grew up fast by creating a great community and by creating contact.

[08:50] They are hooked because of our mission

[09:20] Our ambassador group has a lot of really high quality people

[11:47] Its okay not to know and i'll figure it out along the way

[14:30] So what we do really well is we find information the we believe is useful to our users and make it incredibly engaging by being really good writers.

[16:16] i believe as of now breaking news is a bit of a commodity

[19:02]] we are trying to target HENRY'S, High Earners Not Rich Yet

[21:24] We are polarizing in that we take stances on things

[21:38] We are kind of outsiders, i feel like we are outsiders in many aspects

[22:58] im not going to read that but i'll read something because i believe that is valuable.

[23:08] Understanding how to manipulate people, in a good way or a bad way,to influence people to do what you want them to do, is the most important skill set you can ever learn.

[24:58] That's the goal, to influence certain action


[25:39] One thing that we have struggled on as a company as we've grown is selecting which products will help us grow and which ones sucked and which ones were amazing.

[26:15] I want to give people better information to make better decisions throughout their day.

[28:06] You have to have values to back up what you are actually doing in the world.

[28:43] And so the actions we are trying to influence there is that for people to be suspicious about what they are consuming because it's crap.

[32:23] asks- will a lot of these companies have affiliates

[33:07] i believe that a media company will have multiple streams of revenue.

[33:44] the cool thing about media today is that there isn't that many politics.

[35:19] If you have a computer or a cell phone, you can reach a lot more people than alot of these media companies can.

[36:49] that took me a long time to learn i was really intimidated for a while about what media meant.

[37:23] just get really good at telling your story and you'll stick out big time and i think that far to many people don't look at what they are trying to do as a skill set and you have to get better at your craft.

[37:45] What are some of the ways we can support you?

[37:56] if you want to help us spread the word that'd be great, become an ambassador and sign up for the Hostile.

[38:23] one of the things i learned early on is that starting something and growing something requires entirely different skill sets.
