00:00 I’m a creator. I’m a free thinker. I am someone that brings ideas into this world and really wants to search out and seek out truth. I call myself “The free thinker”, and I think that kind of the name that I’ve identified for you guys is like, we are free thinkers. Russell Brunson has Funnel Hackers. Logan Paul has the Mavericks, right? Like we are free thinkers, and we do things differently, we think differently, we see things differently, we act differently, we go out there, and we really search out truth. That’s what I do. That’s what you do. If you’re a free thinker, that’s what you do.

00:27 You‌ ‌are‌ ‌now‌ ‌entering‌ ‌a‌ ‌new‌ ‌paradigm.‌ ‌So, ‌here’s‌ ‌my‌ ‌issue.‌ ‌I‌ ‌wanted‌ ‌to‌ ‌find‌ ‌the‌ ‌ answers‌ ‌to‌ ‌life’s‌ ‌biggest‌ ‌questions.‌ ‌Things‌ ‌like,‌ ‌how‌ ‌do‌ ‌I‌ ‌become‌ ‌happy‌ ‌and‌ ‌live‌ ‌with‌ ‌purpose?‌ ‌ How‌ ‌do‌ ‌I‌ ‌make‌ ‌more‌ ‌money‌ ‌doing‌ ‌what‌ ‌I‌ ‌love,‌ ‌and‌ ‌what‌ ‌does‌ ‌it‌ ‌mean‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌truly‌ ‌successful‌ ‌in‌ ‌ all‌ ‌areas‌ ‌of‌ ‌life?‌ ‌My‌ ‌name‌ ‌is‌ ‌Josh‌ ‌Forti,‌ ‌@JoshForti‌ ‌on‌ Instagram,‌ ‌and‌ ‌I‌ ‌ask‌ ‌life’s‌ ‌biggest‌ ‌ questions‌ ‌and‌ ‌share‌ ‌the‌ ‌answers‌ ‌with‌ ‌you.‌ ‌My‌ ‌goal‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌help‌ ‌you‌ ‌find‌ ‌purpose,‌ happiness,‌ ‌and‌ ‌ open‌ ‌your‌ ‌mind‌ ‌to‌ ‌new‌ ‌realms‌ ‌of‌ ‌possibility‌ ‌by‌ ‌helping‌ ‌you‌ ‌think‌ ‌differently‌ ‌about‌ ‌everything‌ ‌you‌ do,‌ ‌know,‌ ‌and‌ ‌understand.‌ ‌On‌ ‌this‌ ‌podcast,‌ ‌we‌ ‌think‌ ‌different,‌ ‌we‌ ‌dream‌ ‌bigger,‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌live‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌ world‌ ‌without‌ ‌limits.‌ ‌This‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌new‌ ‌paradigm.‌ ‌Welcome‌ ‌to‌ ‌The‌ ‌Think‌ ‌Different‌ ‌Theory.

01:14 What’s up guys? Welcome back to another episode of The‌ ‌Think‌ ‌Different‌ ‌Theory. My name is Josh Forti. And, I am sitting here right now looking out the window of my office, looking at just this torrential downpour of rain that is coming down. And, it is rain… it’s not just like a light sprinkle, or even a heavy rain, like it’s a torrential downpour, and it’s been doing it all day. And, I will tell you. It is… it is quite crazy outside right now. We’re in the middle of more flooding here in Omaha, which isn’t really a good thing, and I’ll be honest with you, like, I actually don’t mind the rain. I kinda like it, especially like, if the rain comes and I’m trying to do something outside, or it gets in my way, then it’s annoying. But if not, like rain during the day, I think it’s kind of fun.

01:57 It’s kinda calming, you know, and you know, if you want to do stuff outside, it’s kind of annoying. But other than that, like it’s kind of a calming thing, and I like it, especially during the summer. We’re still warm outside. A warm rain, I don’t know. I like it. And, you know, if I feel crazy, I’ll go run out in the rain. Like, I don’t know. It’s cool sometimes, but it certainly beats snow. And, I’m not against winter. I like winter and snow in moderation. I like skiing. I like doing things in the snow, like snowmobiling, and like stuff like that. So like, all those things are super fun, but only in moderation. Rain certainly beats that here, you know, during the summertime with everything. So anyways, it’s torrential down pouring and I… to kind of like paint this picture for you.

02:35 So, back in March when we were on the way to my brother’s funeral, we got caught in something called the “Bomb Cyclone.” It was like the worst blizzard that Colorado had ever seen, or had seen in like a hundred years or something like that. It was crazy. And, my Jeep got like stranded on the side of the road. We had to stay in this random church in the middle of nowhere. There was no towns for like 45 minutes in every direction. It was like an act of God that we even found this church, cause we couldn’t even see past the end of our vehicles. It was just insane. And you can go back and listen to the podcast episodes about that, but Nebraska got all that acceptance, not snow, they got it in rain. And so, it just ruined… I think that they said there was over a billion dollars worth of damage done to farmers, and farm lands, and crops, and buildings, and stuff, in Nebraska because of that.

03:15 And now, like, round two is happening right now, and it’s not quite as bad obviously, but the dam is about to break, it’s torrential downpour. I was driving today and like, it’s just crazy. Like, when I was in the Walmart parking lot going to the bank, like, the… the road sits up higher than the parking lot. You kind of go down in there. So there’s like this retainer wall, and the retainer wall had like waterfalls of water coming off of it. It’s just so much water, construction everywhere, flooding everywhere. The streets are like are just waterfalls. It’s just insane how much water is happening right now. And, yeah. So, anyway, pretty crazy. But, all that being said, that kind of leads me to my next point, which is, we’re getting out of here. And so, I’m not going to be here very, very soon.

03:56 Today is October 7th. Monday, October 7th, is when this episode is dropped or dropping, and, our flight to go on this big world trip leaves in like 18 days. It’s at night now, so like, 18 and a half, technically 19. But we leave out early on the 20th, and fly down to Orlando to kind of kick it off with the crews. And I’m gonna dive into that here in just a second. But I want to kind of take this episode here, and talk to you about this trip in a little bit more detail, because we are coming up on it. It is coming up quickly and I’m going to spend a lot of my solo episodes up until this point, or like, from here on out, talking about the trip, you know, certainly this Monday and next Monday are my, it’s crazy. It’s only this, this episode and next episode that are my solo episodes or the last two solo episodes that I will be here in Omaha.

04:42 The next one, the one on the 21st, I will be on a cruise ship, um, with Cody, NIR and a bunch of other really cool marketers. Arnie Guskey, Andrew cruisey, J R Reavis. Shout out jr uh, and Ross Williams, who’s putting it all on a McKenzie. I don’t even know how to pronounce her last name. I think it’s Lieberman. She’ll be on there. Jeff Miller, uh, like all sorts of really cool people are gonna be semi Ericsson or, or I don’t even know how to pronounce your last name. I apologize. We love Sam. Um, we’re all gonna be down there. There’s gonna be awesome. But um, I want to take some time here to kind of paint a picture about like why I’m actually going on this world trip because I think it’s really, really important and I’m going to spend today’s episode and next Monday’s episode and probably several episodes even into the trip, kind of also a painting this picture around this and laying out how this is going to go down and what I’m planning on learning because I really think that it’s important because I don’t think most people understand why I’m doing this trip and I don’t think I’ve talked about it quite enough to really paint a good enough vision because this is a really, really important trip, not just for me before us, for you guys, for the think different theory movement and for what it is that we’re trying to create here.

05:48 And I think that, you know, as we’re 18, 19 days away, 18 and half days away from me now w when, when I’m recording this like, well I guess, gosh, by the time you’re listening to, it’s less than that because this will be the seven. So we’re like seven, 14 like 15 days away when you’re listening to this, like we’re literally, no, yeah, we’re literally 14 days away, whether the time you’re listening to this less than two weeks. We live on Sunday. Today’s Monday. So 13 technically 14 but yeah, like 13 and a half days and we’ll be out of here, which is just insane. Right? I’m at the time I’m recording this. It’s like 19 days away and um, I haven’t like, I want to bring context around this because it’s really starting to sink in for me now that I’m leaving and it’s really scary.

06:27 And I’m not, I’m wondering, wonder usually get nervous and I’m not wanting to like freak out about things, but as I kind of grow through older a little bit, I kind of do that a little bit more cause I’m like used to my comfort zone a little bit. And um, you know, I started thinking and I’m like, I’ve never been away from a home base for four months. I’ve not had my own bed for four months. I have never, you know, not had some routine in my life for four straight months. And then you throw in running a business, which I know I just sold my other business. But like, you know, Think Different Theory, that’s a business. I have two people working for me and like there’s expenses, they’re like running that on top of it. That’s a crazy thing to do and to think about, especially when you’re not used to traveling.

07:04 Like I haven’t traveled for long extended periods of time. Um, without, you know, like having a home base to come back to. I’m packing my whole entire life into two suitcases. One’s a carry on bag and one’s a backpack and that includes Amy and Leah is coming with me. And so like she’s doing that too. But like one of those entire backpacks is just electronics. Um, I just bought a drone, dropped like 1000 bucks on that. I’ll talk about that a little bit more detail here in a minute. But like, we’ve got, you know, drone two computers, four cameras, uh, the podcasting microphones, the editing stuff, like everything has to be packed in with, uh, a soft or into one backpack. And then all of my clothes and everything that I have to live off of isn’t another backpack. I basically got one backpack to live off of for four months, which is just so crazy to me.

07:48 That’s so counter opposite of what I’m used to and what I know. And so when I think about that, I go, okay, um, I’ve really got to be careful with this and I’ve really gotta be smart about this. And it led me to really think about why I’m doing this in the first place. Cause this is out of my comfort zone guys. Like, I’m excited. Don’t get me wrong, I’m so freaking stoked for this, this insane. But I’m also nervous. I’m also a little scared. This is also all very new to me. And so the question becomes like, Josh, why are you doing this? Yeah, it’s cool. Yeah, you’re going to get great content. But it’s, but really why? And I gotta back up and I kind of share this in a podcast episode not too long ago, but like my whole life, I’ve been an entrepreneur my whole life.

08:26 I’ve identified as that person that is totally okay with sitting in an office for 18 hours a day and watching my bank account stack up and I’m okay with that. And I was, and then, you know, my brother died and that was pretty crazy. Like that was really, really insane. Like it really totally dramatically changed my life. And in the next episode I’m gonna kind of get even more vulnerable and deep about that. I have a Cassie Brown coming in and actually interviewing me on my own podcast, which is going to be super cool. But, um, I want to talk to you a little bit about this because it really did shift who I was and it really helped shape The Think Different Theory and it really made me realize that like, yes, I do love business but I’m not just a business person. I’m a creator, I’m a free thinker, I am someone that brings ideas into this world and really wants to search out and seek out truth.

09:20 I call myself the free thinker and I think that kind of the name that I’ve identified for you guys is like, we are free thinkers. Russell Brunson has funnel hackers, Logan, Paul has the Mavericks, right? Like we are free thinkers and we do things differently. We think differently, we see things differently, we act differently. We go out there and we really search out truth. That’s what I do. That’s what you do if you’re a free thinker, that’s what you do. You value truth above all else. You value impact more than, you know, just doing VR or building businesses for profit. And I’m all for profit, but like there has to be bigger meaning behind that. And so when I really sat down and I started thinking about, you know, what I wanted to build and when I started thinking about like, okay, like I’m going to build a business, but I’m like to me like having an impact and having followers and, and having, you know, influencing lots of people.

10:03 That is my business. And that’s not like I don’t teach everybody to go into business like that. That’s not how a typical business is run. But that’s where I feel called to do because I am a free thinker and I am a creator. I put ideas out into the world, ideas of truth, ideas that are really going to change the world. Not ideas that are fun necessarily. Not ideas that are going to make everybody feel good, but ideas that are actually gonna change the world that are going to preach this thing, a personal responsibility. And in order for you to build a brand, in order for you to really go out there and make bold, polarizing statements like it takes to go build a brand, I’ve got to know truth. I’ve got to know what I actually stand for. And for me right now, I thought I knew what I stand for, but then my brother died and I just, I didn’t know anymore.

10:45 And I went on this journey of figuring out myself and God and religion and just all these different things that were so much bigger than just making money. I’m always going to be able to make money and you are as well. But if I want to build a brand, if I want to build something that’s lasting, I know how to do that. But how you do it is you make polarizing bold statements. You stand for things. In order to do that, you’ve got to know what you believe. And in order to know what you believe, you’ve got to know what is truth. And that’s what it all comes down to is what is true, what is real, what do I actually believe? And as I looked at myself and I looked around and you know, I was like, I knew, I know how to grow followers.

11:22 I’ve grown in marriage to 5 million of them. But that was all because I was younger and I made these polarizing statements. And I wasn’t afraid to, but now I question everything and I’m like, I’ve got to go travel and I’ve got to go see what this is all about. And that’s what this trip is all about. I didn’t want to take this trip. I had no, no desire before Kyle died to travel at all. Like I was like, y’all can go see the rest of the world, whatever. I’m going to go get rich. Right? Like that was kinda my mentality and now I’m like, I do want to go be wealthy. I do want to make a positive impact on the world. I do want to build a lasting brand, but I’m willing to risk every single penny that I ever have made to go and figure out what truth is.

11:56 Guys, when I sold my company, think different theory was cashflow negative the first month into think different theory. It was still cashflow negative and were coming out of that. But like I’m investing a lot of money in a lot of time into really getting things to where they need to be. Hiring an editor, hiring a coach. I mean I have an independent consultant coming in that costs thousands of dollars, right, of a total to come in and, and help me build the systems that I need. We have the editor for the videos doing that. I have a carry and doing all the Facebook ads and things that we’re doing there. I’ve got, you know, Ian running the support. Like we have a whole operation and there’s a lot that goes into this and I’ve bought electronics and spent money on equipment and capital. I mean, Hawaii in and of itself was like, you know, five, six, seven grand to plan and we’re going to talk about that a little bit more detail here, but like there’s a lot that goes into this and I am willing to spend every single penny that I have.

12:50 Uh, if I don’t make a dime on this trip and I have to front the whole thing out of pocket and fund the whole thing, I will because that is what I believe it’s going to take for me to go and learn what truth is. Now. Obviously I plan to make money along the all along the way. Yes. Obviously like we have selling with confidence and we have these different trainings that we’re gonna do affiliate marketing. We’re gonna teach and do and just share. It’s gonna be awesome. And I plan to make money along the way. But my point is that even if I didn’t, even if it all fell on its face, even if I came back to America with $0 million to my name, it would be worth it. Because I believe that. And I know, I know, I know that I am in a pursuit of truth.

13:25 I am in, I’m after what is real and what is true and what I can make polarizing statements about. Because if I believe something to be true without a shadow of a doubt, I will stand for that truth. And that is going to be my polarity. That’s gonna what’s ma? That’s what is going to separate me and make me different from everybody else out there. Sorry. So like, like it’s, it’s more than just about experience. It’s more than just about me. It’s about think different theory. It’s about you. It’s about truth. It’s about putting this idea into the world and and building an army and a movement of free thinkers and people that think different about everything they do and know and understand. That’s what this trip is about. And I, I made a post on Instagram not too long ago and you can go check it out.

14:08 It’s a picture of like a sunset. And I tell you like, it’s a scary, this is the scariest trip I’ve ever taken, right? This is to build a brand. I’m gonna read it here. Like it’s not just to have fun or show office to build a brand, a movement around thing, different theory. It’s to learn so much about culture and truth so that I can spread ideas out into the world and make a positive impact. This trip isn’t for me, it’s for us. It’s for you guys. It’s about think different theory and what it stands for. It’s about really truly figuring out what it means to be a free thinker. It, we’re going to go off the beaten path like w work. We’re staying in Hawaii like for one whole week. We’re staying in a camper 10 like a tent that literally sits on top of a pickup truck and with no running water and no bathrooms and no showers and like literally be camping for a whole week out in the boondocks.

14:47 Like that’s where we’re going to be going. I want to really learn. And so when I thought about taking this trip and I thought about selling the company, if I would’ve stayed with the company for another year and a half or two years, I probably could have had a much larger direction exit, right? I could have waited a a lot more money, but I didn’t know what I wanted to build. I didn’t know what was true anymore. And I was like, I need to dedicate my life to figuring out that because I’m free in the mind, but I need to know what I believe and I know how to make money, but I need to know what I actually stand for. And like that’s what it all comes down to. And my why hasn’t changed. My why is to inspire people to go out and break free and no truth and create their own reality so that they fall in love with life and make the world a better place.

15:27 That’s what this is about. And so as I sit down and we’re going to go into this further and I’m gonna talk here in just a little bit about like how I’m going to lay this out in the content layout that we, that we have, like I want you guys to know that like that’s the ultimate goal. It’s to go out there and learn and experience culture and truth and share that with you guys. We’re going to have blogs that are going to come, we’re going to start out probably like one or two a week and hopefully by the end of it we’re going to be at, you know, three or four week. I’m not exactly sure how that’s all gonna work itself out. Depends upon, you know, timing and, and wifi and internet, like you know, all that. So like there’s a lot that goes into this, but like I want people to, to use me and use my journeys and my travels as a way to learn.

16:05 Like, I’m not just doing this just because it’s cool. This is actually super inconvenient. Like this is not the way to build a business. My Sam ovens who, you know, I, I’ve learned tremendous amount from a mentor of mine. He’s like, you know, this is the exact opposite of what he says to do, right? Like it is crazy because there needs to be a home base, there needs to be routine and this is like the exact opposite of that. But I’m willing to take that and look at this, to experience that culture, to experience that change, to experience that truth and to come back and be like, this is what I believe. This is how God spoke to me. This is, you know, like all these different things. This is what I learned about business. This is what I learned about people. This is what I learned about human psychology.

16:42 This is what I learned about this. It’s more than just business. It’s not just about growing your Facebook group or getting followers or like whatever or Oh, you know, monetize this and close more clients or that like all those things are fine, but there needs to be purpose and substance behind all of that. And that’s what I’m after here. I think different, I do things different because I am the free thinker and if I can’t lead by example, and if I don’t lead by example, why would you follow me? Why would you buy into what I’m doing? I want to help you think differently because I truly believe that all of sales, all of marketing, all of business, it all starts in the mind. I know that. And the reason that you are failing right now and the reason that you’re struggling with those things is because your mindset isn’t right and you don’t have good perspective.

17:25 And so like, yes, that’s a hard sell because I’m going to be like, yeah, change your mindset. You’re gonna make more money. You’re gonna be like cow. And I’d be like, trust me, it works. Right? But I need to learn all of that and share what I know along the way. And that’s what this is all about and socialize. We sit down and we do this. I want you guys to know that this trip has come through great struggle and turmoil. I have been through some crap this year. This has been arguably the hardest year of my life so far. A lot of stuff happening around my brother dying, a lot of personal things, a lot of family things that went with that. There have been legal issues that have come up. There have been, you know like I mean just like so many different things and like it’s nothing crazy, you know like it’s just thing after thing, drama after drama and like it takes a toll on you and you’re like, at the end of the day I look back and I’m just so incredibly thankful for what I’ve learned and for what I been through.

18:24 And please don’t like, please understand I am not complaining for one second. Like my life is like God has blessed me so much and I am very, very, very, very blessed. But like it’s, it’s not to say it isn’t hard and you know, I, I’ve been through a lot and I’m using this trip as a way to go and to take a step back to reflect, to learn and to say, all right, God was what’s next? All right. Like, what, where do I need to go now? How do I teach? How do I learn? Like what do I do? And you know, I, I think that we can all learn from that. And so anyway, I’m very, very excited and that’s the reason I’m taking the trip and I want her to kind of lay out here and kind of transition over into that, that into like how I’m going to be laying out content for this trip because we’re still kind of figuring it out.

19:03 But I’m open to feedback as well. If you guys have, you know, better ideas than this, like semi Instagram DM or whatever. This is just where I think where we’re at, but on, on, I want to kind of lay this out to kind of set the tone so that you guys know what to expect. Before I do that, I just want to say like, I appreciate you guys following me. I appreciate the love. I appreciate the support. Every single DM that I get on Instagram does not go unnoticed. I can’t reply to them all anymore. I try my very best, but I am going to camp and if it’s a really good damn I’m going to reply to it. But like I get a lot of like, Hey, what’s up? So does that mean I can’t reply to all those? So if you’d want me to reply to your DM, I will reply to it.

19:35 But give me a reason to reply to it. Like send me something that’s, you know, w speaking to me like make it personal, like make it easy and make it easy for me to reply to and I will get back to it. I appreciate that. I love the comments on all the photos and the videos that we’re posting. I love hearing your guys’ feedback and I just wanted to say like, thank you so much for your support thus far. Like it’s been incredible and I just can’t, I can’t thank you guys all enough. Like seriously. So, um, that’s the purpose of the trip. I hope this makes sense. And uh, any feedback or any love that you guys want to show, uh, I’d appreciate it. Like you have no idea how much a comment and a like means to me on Instagram. Not only does do I get feedback from you, but it also spreads the message.

20:10 Like, even if you’re like, I don’t really need to comment on that. Leave a comment anyway. You know what I mean? Like I see those and I make note to those and I really do see you as commenting on it. So anyway, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Okay, moving on to kind of the content layout because I want to lay out real quick just how we have the first leg of our trip planned. Uh, Leah and I sat down over the weekend here and we’re like, okay, like, here’s like, here’s what we’ve got going on. And we figured out what it is specifically that we need or like, like how we’ve planned it and we’ve booked all the way up until Australia from now through Australia. And so we landed in Australia on November 14th and so we had the entire trip in booked up until that point.

20:48 I want to kind of want to lay out that and then show you how I’m going to go through and, um, and like produce the content around this. And like I said, we’re still getting kind of late in. So actually let’s start with content. Okay. So what I’m kind of planning on doing is because we have a one to two week lag with content creation for the podcast, I’m still gonna try to go and have a lot of podcast interviews, um, come out why I’m traveling at least at the beginning until I kind of get into the swing of things. And definitely through Hawaii. So you’re still probably only gonna get one solo episode a week from me. Maybe two if we run out of interviews cause keep doing like two interviews a week does require a lot of time and coordinating in a lot of our guests can’t make it, you know, when I’m traveling in the very limited windows that I have of internet, so it’s going to be one to two solo episodes and then you know, one to two interviews every week with that.

21:42 What I’m going to try to do with the solo episodes is one episode I’m going to kind of lay out, okay, here’s, you know, cause we’re planning our trip in two to three weeks in advance so that we get, you know, the best deals. It’s not last minute flights and pricing and all that. And so we got kind of have to plan that out. So during one episode I’m going to kind of set the tone and be like, okay, here’s where we’re going for the next two or three weeks. Here’s what we just planned so that you guys can kind of know what’s coming up and where we’re going next. And that’ll be on the podcast. Obviously from an a, from a social media perspective, like follow me on Instagram and follow me on YouTube like Josh 40 both places if you Google it or if you, if you’ll go on YouTube and type in Josh 40, I think.

22:18 Well at this time we have about 500 subscribers. Um, no videos yet. So if you don’t see anything that’s good cause we haven’t started yet. If you start seeing videos, that means we’ve started. Um, but about 500 subscribers right now and on Instagram we just crashed 27,000 followers, which thank you guys, I appreciate it if you’re not following me there and make sure, but Instagram stories are going to be an uploaded daily daily content on Instagram, a YouTube at least once a week video stuff. And then if you’re not on the email list, just all link link below, get the sales guide, get the personal brand ebook at the, the Mindshift playbook. Get something, get on the email list. I am going to commit to, and this is going to be super, super hard, but I’m going to commit to writing one recap post every single day that we’re going to put out on a in an email and probably on Instagram as well, maybe on Facebook, just to keep everybody in the loop.

23:06 It might be one paragraph, it might be three pages, but I’m going to try to commit to every single day writing an E or a recap of the day of what I’ve learned and what we did. And I’m very, very excited about that to kind of document literally every single day. And obviously we’re gonna have tons of Instagram stories and videos and things like that, so make sure you’re subscribed, make sure you’re following along. But from a podcast perspective, I’m going to try like a week or two ahead of time to kind of lay out where we’re going so that you can kind of see like, okay, this is where they’re going, this is like what I can expect, like coming up. And then it’s going to happen. So when we land in Hawaii, we’re spending two and a half days in Honolulu, then going to Hawaii for six in Maui.

23:46 Uh, and then, uh, Oahu I think is how it’s pronounced, the big Island back to Honolulu. And then we fly out. So like during that time I like, I’m gonna, it’s gonna happen and then I’m going to be create a podcast about it and then there’s gonna be probably a week delay. So you’re going to know what’s happening like ahead of time. I’m like, I’m gonna, I’m going to podcast about it. And that’s probably going to be released right about the time that it’s actually happening in real life. And then about a week to two weeks later, you’re going to get the recap episode of that in that. So it’s going to kind of be this running thing of like, Hey, here’s where we’re at right now. Here’s what’s coming next and what’s coming next for me is probably what I’m going to be living in real time.

24:25 Because there’s that week to two week delay depending upon everything. And we’re going to get into a swing of things. We’re going to try to keep that, that a delay time is short as possible. But I just need to give my editing team time to actually go hit through it and edit up these podcasts. My poor editing team, you know, they’re just like, we need some time and shout out Daxy and Ryan and the whole team over there. Legacy Podcasting for cooperating with this whole thing cause it’s gonna be nuts. So that’s kinda the game plan there is from a podcast perspective is ahead of time. I’m going to give you, I’m going to record the podcast, give you say, Hey, here’s what’s coming up, here’s what we’re doing, here’s where we booked. And then from there, once it happens, I’m going to record the recap, tell the stories about everything that happened.

25:00 Obviously there’s gonna be video and content all over social. So subscribe there and then that podcast episode will come out and then we’ll have interviews in the process of that at the beginning. It may be to the point where I need two solo episodes to talk about this and we’ll drop down to one interview a week. And that might be what we have to do. It might be easier for me to actually create content like that cause I’m going to have so much to talk about. And that way I don’t have to produce so many interviews cause two interviews a week is actually very difficult. Like I was thinking about this and I was talking to two, I’m doxy and Ryan actually. And I was like, you know, I put up, put out three podcast episodes a week. Is that a lot or a little? He’s like, dude, I don’t know how you like how you keep up with that.

25:37 Like there’s people that struggle to put out one podcast episode a week, you do three every single week and haven’t missed a week. And that’s super exciting. And I love producing content, but um, you know, that’s just kind where we’re gonna have to find, kinda find the swing of, of everything. So that’s the plan there. If you guys have any better ideas or you know, wants specific things covered, please, please, please, please send me an Instagram DM. Like, follow me on Instagram, send me a DM. They’re not on Facebook. I hardly ever check it. Instagram’s going to be the way I do check them. So just, you know, send me, you know, like Hey Josh definitely covered this. Definitely talk about this. Like let me know. I’m happy to do that. Okay. Um, for the sake of time, I’m not going to lay out in this episode in detail what’s happening in Hawaii.

26:18 I’m going to save that for next week. So you’re going to have to wait there, but it is booked at his plan, but I am going to just kinda lay out the dates for you so that you are like the, the days, the amount of days of what’s happening from now through Australia. So you have a little sneak peak of what we’re gonna look into. Uh, next on next Monday’s episode. Cause I’m pumped about it. I really, really am. I think you guys are going to love it as well. So here’s the plan. Um, we leave on October 20th. That is when our flight flies out down to Orlando. Um, we’re going to get into Orlando and spend the night with, actually, we’re hanging out with Cody Neer a shout out Cody near, just saw him at the Ohio state game, which is awesome. Um, or Ohio state Nebraska game, uh, which was awesome.

26:59 Um, but we’re going to do that and then we’re getting on a cruise ship on the 21st, uh, and going to The Bahamas. It’s called the modern prophets cruise. It’s a marketing cruise with all the people that I named earlier. And I’m speaking on that cruise. I’m doing my presentation down there, which is super exciting. And we’ll be in there for five days and then we get back into Orlando. Uh, we come back into Orlando and get off the boat there. Um, we’re gonna be down The Bahamas and do some really cool stuff when we get back. Excuse me. Once we get back and then we’re going to spend one more day in Orlando. I think it’s one more day. And then we fly out from Orlando directly to Honolulu and we’re spending, I’m going to spend, uh, two and a half days in Honolulu. Just kind of getting settled in with everything and immediately go do Hawaii.

27:39 We’re going to spend six days in quite, I, I can’t wait to tell you guys like what we have planned for. This is gonna be awesome. Like we’ll just make sure to tune into next Monday’s episode because like guys, we’re not staying in like typical hotels. Like we’ve got like tents and campers stuff and hammocks. We’re staying in like, ah, I’m so excited. So like just make sure to tune into next Sunday. Yeah, next Monday’s episode. I will just download all the episodes. Just make a habit of that. That’s, that’s really, that’s just a good idea. Um, but uh, do that then want to go from quiet to Maui. We’re going to do a six more days in Maui. We’ve got a Jeep Wrangler. It’s going to be super fun. I’m, I’m pumped about it. Uh, then we’re going to, uh, Oahu and being on the North shore and then we fly out from Honolulu back and we land, we go from Honolulu, a direct flight to Sydney, Sydney, Australia, and we get it I think on November 14.

28:26 So that’s kind of the outline. Um, I’m going to give you more details about what we’re gonna do and the adventures that we got going and everything that we’ve got going on. Uh, in the next month. Next Monday is episode a when I feel you’re not everything. And I’m also going to tell you more about my drone, which I’m stoked about. So anyway, I wanted to lay that out and I wanted to just really paint the vision for what this trip is really about. And I wanna end with that. This trip is not about me. It’s about truth, it’s about you. It’s about Think Different Theory. It’s about thinking different, being different, and really being a free thinker and me really defining what that means because I want to be able to look back in a year from now, five years from now, 10 years from now, and go that trip.

29:10 That was the defining moment. And that is what really defined, and set the path for what The‌ ‌Think‌ ‌Different‌ ‌Theory is, and what it means to be a free thinker. Because we are freethinkers and if you’re listening to this podcast right now, you’re a free thinker. If you’ve listened to multiple of these, it’s impossible not to be a free thinker, because that’s what I put out, and that’s what you’re buying into. This isn’t about me, it’s about more than me. It’s about us. It’s about a movement. It’s about making the world a better place and really understanding what truth is, what is really truly real, and how to live in that way. So I appreciate you guys. I love you all. Thank you so much. Make sure to follow me on Instagram. Make sure to follow me on YouTube. It’s going to be absolutely amazing. As always, hustle, hustle. God bless.

29:50 Do not be afraid to think different because those of us that think different are going to be the ones that change the world. I love you all and I will see you on the next episode. Take it easy fam. Peace. Yo, what’s up guys?
