We're gonna learn so much from you today before we get into it. I just gotta ask you...
, sort of a general question. You know, as I just mentioned, I know a lot of people out there they are. They have an idea, there's, something holding them back. What do you hear as the biggest sort of roadblock for people who just can't seem to make there? That's a really good question, I would say the biggest roadblock is typically people think that the business is really complicated and they have an idea and they say to themselves, there's, no way as a non techie person, I could ever do that, and they kind of lose all their steam, which is kind of ridiculous because the craziest app I think I've ever seen was one of the simplest, which was yeah, I remember you guys from rio are basically just push a button and it sends a message to your friend says, yeah, and so that first it could raise millions of dollars, you know, it's not as complicated as you think exactly. There's hope for everybody. Exactly. And that's what? We're going to today's kind of de cloud that whole gray area of the world and make it all happens. Yeah. Ok. Well, for all of you people out there who are watching that's, we're gonna learn today. Get your app ideas ready. Card is gonna help you out. I know you got a lot to teach, so I'm gonna let you take it away. Many thanks. 00:02:01.38 --> 00:02:04.
