We know almost nothing about affiliate marketing. So why is the show 25 minutes long? We do tend to ramble sometimes. In fact, I don't even know why you're looking at the show notes, nothing to see here. 

Wait, there is 1 thing- If you have an Apple product, Please go to the Apple Store and download the Overcast.com app. It's free, it's much better than iTunes, and we would love it if you would recommend us there. Do that and then tell us you did for a shout out on the show- @DJDoug, @NiceGuyonBiz or call 42-42 DJ Doug and record an intro to the show. Tell us what you like and don't like. If not, you'll just have to suffer through more episodes like this.

In Dark Justice, Che Holloway plays Amir Johnson, the first black cop in a small town. We talk entertainment, racism, selling yourself and so much more today on The Nice Guys.

 

Don't be afraid of taking risks, things will always remain a "what if", if you dont try. Life is too short to play it safe, im learning this personally in my own journey throughout life.

 

Definitely visit DARK JUSTICE, we have lots of cool information and announcements up there, our web site is www.darkjusticeshow.com were also available on Youtube, Funny or Die, Stream Now TV (a streaming service hosting Indi films and shows), Vimeo and Daily Motion!

Two films up on streamnowtv for your consideration, PRESSURE, written and directed by Reginald Altidor, tells the story of an ex con who comes back home and is forced to make a heavy decision to support his family. Another film, MODIEVAL written and directed by Bryan Ribiero, is a kids/family/fantasy short about a wizard and a knight on a quest for treasure. This film has a fun spin because of its RPG sequences similar to Scott Pilgrim, directed by Edgar Wright.

As for upcoming projects, there's one I'm really excited about, its called Elysian Field, its a cross between being a period piece/fantasy/action and drama, Elysian Field, written by Carlos Alvarez ( 8 is infinity) and Directed by Jon Leyton (GrandMasterElephant) is in post production and a teaser of this film can be found in both my personal reels (www.cheholloway.com) and on grandmasterelephant.com I will keep people updated about this project through my social media, when you think of Elysian Field, think of a cross of Othello and Django Unchained...yeah..

Sleep your way to the top. In her new book The Sleep Revolution- Transforming your life, one night at a time. Arianna Huffington wants to start a new revolution to get more sleep. Hear all about it on The Nice Guys Podcast. Here are some of the questions you will hear on the episode today:

 

Sleep deprivation is cultural. Doctors, truck drivers, students and other fields show the tougher the better. An attitude of "I'll sleep later" or “I’ll sleep when I am dead,” prevails, but is this really a good thing?

 

Absenteeism and presenteeism (showing up but not being productive). What is going on in the world today as it pertains to sleep?

 

You reference study after study, dozens if not over a hundred studies proving that In losing sleep people are not getting more done. They are actually getting less done. So why do you think this is the case?

 

We are less healthy, mentally disconnected and uglier when we are sleep deprived. Why aren't we taking more action to correct this?

 

You talk about someone that took a  sleeping pill and later discovered she ordered hooker clothes while under the influence. What's up with the world and the overuse of sleep medication Arianna?

 

People turn to drugs too quickly. You reference study after study pointing to this as a solution. What are the dangers in this and what is the solution?

 

The world thinks it's ok to be sleep deprived. Is that Changing in 2016?

To preview tomorrow's interview with Ariana Huffington, we are going to talk about the 12 tips in her new book, The Sleep Revolution- Transforming your life, one night at a time.

 

#1 Avoid Caffeine, Alcohol, Nicotine, and Other Chemicals that Interfere with Sleep

Nothing after 2pm

 

#2 Turn Your Bedroom into a Sleep-Inducing Environment

Dark, quiet and cool

 

#3 Establish a Soothing Pre-Sleep Routine

Turn off tech, read or relax, ease into sleep

 

#4 Go to Sleep When You’re Truly Tired

Develop a routine to get in bed when you are tired, don’t push yourself beyond

 

#5 Don’t Be a Nighttime Clock-Watcher

If not asleep in 20 minutes get up and do quiet activity...no computers

 

#6 Use Light to Your Advantage

Start light when you get up and try to get outside during the day

 

#7 Keep Your Internal Clock Set with a Consistent Sleep Schedule

Same time each day or as close as possible

 

#8 Nap Early—Or Not at All

15-20 minutes is all you need before 5pm

 

#9 Lighten Up on Evening Meals

Stay light with your meals and not too late

 

#10 Balance Fluid Intake

Stay hydrated but don’t overdo it

 

#11 Exercise Early - 3 hours before bedtime

 

#12 Follow Through consistently with your actions, create new habits.

Create new patterns and habits to do it right.

Jeffrey shares his executive insight and commentary on television networks like Bloomberg, MSNBC, Fox Business, and C-Suite TV. He has appeared as a guest celebrity judge on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump for three seasons. Hear all about it on The Nice Guys today.

 

Here are some things we learned from Jeffrey Hayzlett today:

 

It's not the lucky who win, it's the relentless.

 

To succeed in business today you must adapt, change or die.

 

Empower your employees to make their own decisions. Explain “The Katelyn Rule.”

 

Spend a few moments talking about Clock Changers and other guys...I love that story Jeffrey.

 

It's imperative for leaders to focus and cut out the noise.

 

Create a company cadence that completely reflects what’s important to you.

 

Adopting a "servant mentality" can help you become a better leader.
