This double feature opens with guest, Taurean Peterson, who is the writer and director” known for “Vixens & Villains,” “Grit,” and “Grit.” He is also an actor with a background specializing in SEO, online marketing, and web design. His influence has continued to grow by taking all of his interest in film and turning it into two very successful films, “Grit” and “Grit.” After the “Grit” films, he did “Mr.Cutter,” a kind of throwback to the days of “Tales of from the Crypt.” These skills and the success he felt from those films brought “Vixens & Villains.” Taurean shared, “The storyline is pretty much about two private investigators who are hired by this lady who’s looking for her missing sister and when they start looking into the investigation they uncover a conspiracy that involves organized crime corporations and politicians.”
“…..action sequences and fight sequences area actually all done by the ladies so that’s going to be gonna be on some “KillBill” type stuff. Yeah, I have a lot of women that are going to be getting active on screen,” “…. damsels in distress, but the lead lady characters…they hold their own”
“…..one of the private investigators, it’s like a throwback to “Columbo” and the times of “Humphrey Bogart” with that with that “crime noir” type still, you know, with a little bit of an urban audience. They’re going to be able to see that the other private investigator, he’s more like “Will Smith” from “Bad Boys,” “Miami Vice” type stuff, but you don’t see other synergy works together on film, which is going to be something different, as well. So, we have all these different things in there and it’s all going to be intertwined.”
Taurean shared some tools with the audience for writers and those who want to know more about writing a screenplay. While you have to get the details from listening to the show, here is a tidbit: “being a good screenplay writer, it’s funny. Less is better and novel is more.”
Returning to the show is guest Brad Williams, CEO of “Williams Financial Services,” whose number one goal is to build a solid foundation for a financial house, that is YOUR financial house, and treat his clients as if they were his own parents.
The first topic discussed is bankruptcy. Brad shared that when you have a long expansion, meaning the market has gone up and people see their 401ks going up, they are more optimistic. Even with one issue being credit, when people feel good, they tend to buy things. Companies and stores make it really easy for you. Buy now pay later. People are just loaded with debt in a lot of areas from credit.
Another topic is the issue with the effects of college costs. Brad explained that with college, you have students who take twenty-forty thousand dollar student loans and they’re going away to college enrolled in a program that may not be marketable. That’s’ where there is a challenge. A cost-benefit assessment needs to be done before they take on that kind of debt. If not, it is necessary to reassess whether one should go in that degree field, take that loan, or even go to college at all.
