Speaker1:
So here's the big question. Our entrepreneurs like us who have been hustling

And struggling to make it to success, who seem to make it one step forward only to fall two steps back. We're dedicated. Determined and driven. How do we finally break through? And with that is the question. And this podcast will give you the. My name is. This. The mind body business.

Speaker1:
Hello, everyone, and welcome, welcome, welcome to the Mind Body Business Show. You have made it here on a very, very special night.

Speaker2:
We have none other than Jeff Brain.. He is the founder of Clout Hub. And if you've not heard of that yet, oh my goodness, you are going to love what this man has put together, and his team is an amazing, amazing social media site. And we'll get into that in a little bit. The Mind Body Business Show. It is a show for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs, and my mission on this show is to bring on incredible guests, experts like Jeff Brain, who will express how they have achieved the level of success that they have so that you can simply take notes and model what they have done to achieve their great levels of success. And that's what it's all about. It's about modeling success, and I bring on special guests after special guests. Jeff is way up there and I can't wait to share him and his wisdom with you in just a moment. And so the mind body business shows about what I call the three pillars of success mind being a very positive, powerful yet most importantly, flexible mindset body, which is taking care of oneself physically and through nutrition.

Speaker2:
Now, this came from studying successful people that I did for over 10 years, where I would just get into their brain if they were alive and read their books if they were not with us anymore and find out what were the keys to their success. And that's where these three pillars came from. And business, each and every of these successful individuals had mastered all the skill sets necessary to build and continue to grow thriving businesses, and there are many skill sets that one must master. And we're going to go into several components of different things tonight. These are organic shows. We have a chat and I like to extract the brilliance out of beautiful people like Jeff Brain. It's going to be a lot of fun. I hope you stay with us. And another wonderful artifact of very successful people is to a person. What I found out is they are each very avid readers of books and not just any books books that have impact on them. And with that, I like to Segway over into a little segment I affectionately call bookmarks.

Speaker3:
Bookmarks born to read, bookmarks ready, steady read bookmarks brought to you by reach your peak library.

Speaker2:
There you see it on the screen, reach your peak library in a real just a quick word of advice, and that is right, these resources down versus clicking away and trying to find out what they look like while the show is on. And here's the reason why when Mr. Geoff Brain is on, he is going to be giving such incredible nuggets of wisdom. I would hate for you to miss any one of them. It only takes one to change your life forever. And I would hate for you to miss that because your attention was diverted off to looking at other websites or looking it into resources. So just do yourself a favor and write this down on a piece of paper, or maybe on your notepad and a computer. But keep your attention on Jeff when he speaks because you don't want to miss a word of this amazing, amazing man. So reach your peak library. That is a website I literally had put together with you in mind, and I'm not kidding when I say that what it is is a compilation of books that I personally read and bet.

Speaker2:
And that means not every book I've ever read is in this list on this website. They're really not in here in any particular order. They were just kind of dropped in as I completed reading them. And they're there for you. If if something jumps out to you that you haven't read. Just click the button. It goes to Amazon. This is not for the purpose of making money. This is for the purpose of giving you a resource that you know at least one other successful person has vetted so that your odds of wasting time are greatly diminished. That is the whole purpose behind this, so I hope you enjoy that resource. That is my gift to everyone. Again, it's not here for the purpose of making money, but for spreading value, knowledge and wisdom so that you can get ahead in business and in life because it covers everything. Well, you know, we've been talking a lot about this guy named Jeff Brady. And I think it's about time we all met him in person. What do you think? I think it's time. Let's do it. Here we go.

Speaker3:
It's time for the guest expert, spotlight savvy, skillful, professional, adept, trained, big league qualified.

Speaker1:
And there he is. Ladies and gentlemen, it is the one, it is the only Jeff brain. Oh, you don't tonight, Jeff.

Speaker4:
I'm doing good. How are you? Good to be with.

Speaker1:
Fantastic. Excited beyond the Moon. This is the founder of Clout Hub. Everyone, we're going to learn a lot about that tonight. I cannot wait to dig deep into that beautiful brain of his. Wow. I just said beautiful brain that was not intended. A pun that was awesome. I kid you not. I did not mean that to happen on purpose. That's pretty neat. Real quick before we dove in. Jeff, if you don't mind a little bit of housekeeping, I need to go through. And that is everyone sees that red and white round circle above Jeff's head. If you're watching on video and that is the big insider secrets, they sponsor the show. And with that, everyone who sticks with us live to the end can enter to win a five night stay at a five star luxury resort. And that is all because of the big insider secrets. You do not want to miss that, so stay with us till the end and then two more, and we're going to get back to the man of the hour. All right. So if you're struggling with putting a life show together and it's overwhelming and you want a lot of the processes done for you while still enabling you to put on a high quality show and to connect with great people like Jeff Brain and grow your business all at the same time, then head on over to carpet bomb marketing, carpet bomb marketing, saturate the marketplace with your message, and one of the key components that is contained in the carpet bomb marketing system is one that you'll learn how to absolutely master.

Speaker1:
And it's the very service we're using right now to stream our live show right here on the Mind Body Business Show, and it's called Streaming Ardis. You can see there.

Speaker4:
Doing well, doing well. So good to be right.

Speaker1:
Thank you. Thank you. And I know you went through a lot to be here and I completely appreciate that and I thank you immensely. So what Jeff has done, am I going to go on the details? But it's the epitome of a successful individual. He's very flexible and made things happen that were not comfortable. Let's just put it that way, and I appreciate that, Jeff, very, very much. And now I'm going to introduce you, give you the respect you deserve by letting people know what a brilliant guy you are because you have this cool storyline you've used for your bio. And I think it's really neat how you've done that. Jeff Brain is the CEO of Cloud Hub. Have you ever dreamed of a social media platform that brings people together and connects them to the things and people that enrich their lives and builds up society rather than tears it down? Hmm. How many of you have heard about this just recently happening where voices can be heard? Authentic discussion is allowed. There's a concept, and diverse ideas can be civilly debated. That's what Jeff Brain envisioned when he set out to create Klout Hub, a social network designed for meaningful civic and social engagement.

Speaker1:
I love this existing social media platforms have become abusive, invasive and unhealthy. Even still, they have transformed commerce, relationships and business. What is missing is, until now, is a platform that brings people together and enables them to access information and tools that allow them to address the issues that impact their lives, communities, society and country. Jeff is on a mission to bring people back together and empower them to connect, socialize and impact the issues that they care about. Klout Hub is a place where free thinkers and speakers can go beyond simply posting in exchange for likes like so many do, but actually making a difference. Klout Hub is social that matters powerful. I love that. That is amazing. Oh, I'm so excited. Michelle Swanwick, shout out to you. Thank you for introducing me to this guy. He is an amazing guy. She has a great cause. She's working with as well, and we're just going to go. We're going to talk about hub in in depth in a little bit here, Jeff. But I know that it takes a lot to stand something up like that. Oh my gosh, I can't even imagine. Actually, I'm a former software engineer, and I just that's not something I would want to tackle.

Speaker1:
There are so many moving parts to a social media platform yet, let alone any kind of smart type of web presence, which that one definitely is database driven. Every. That goes with it. What I like to do is begin the show by finding out what it is going on in that big, beautiful brain of yours, Jeff. It's all about what's going up in the mind that really sets the tone for either our our degree of success currently or lack thereof. And so for you, when you get up in the morning, I mean, I can't not imagine what you're going through with building this thing up from the ground. And there are arduous tasks. There are issues, there are things to deal with. There are people like me. You've got to deal with to come on the show at the last minute when you get up in the morning. What is it going on in your brain that is keeping you motivated, always moving forward, even when you're stuck with, you know, facing setback after setback up your setback? What is it for you going on up here when you're ready to start your day?

Speaker4:
Yeah. Well, actually, it's easy to start my day in that I am excited about what I'm building. I think it's badly needed. And first of all, I apologize if I'm in the lobby of a hotel. So, you know, hopefully it won't be too noisy. But you know, there's tremendous challenges facing our country and our society and our freedoms right now. And so what Claudette is doing right now is providing people the tools they need to address those issues, right? I don't know if you heard, but we had when Go Fund Me had decided not to release the funds to the Canadian truckers cloud, who stepped up and set up a replacement campaign and we in five days raised them eight point five million dollars just because just before coming on the air tonight, we learned that the Canadian government froze those funds, you know, so oh my gosh, it is a lot of setbacks, but you know, you always have to have the confidence that you'll figure out the answer because it's like Martin Luther King said, don't wait to see the top step to take the first step. You can. If you did that, then you'd be in. You never get started, so you always have to have the confidence that you're going to solve the problems that come your way and that you either you'll have the answer, you'll you'll know somebody who has that answer for you and don't let it stop you.

Speaker4:
And so, you know, tonight was it, you know, this happened just before I came on the air, you know, with you. And that's part of the reason I was a little bit late doing. It might check, but so you can imagine I had to talk to a lot of people about this. And but we'll figure an answer to it. And it just shows, you know, how how important a platform like to business people have to be able to organize. People have to be able to mobilize and address the issues. And, you know, the people in Canada that are involved in this truck protest. They haven't burned any buildings. They haven't broken any windows. And nobody has, you know, been beaten up or hurt. And yet the reason they froze the money is they suggested it was being used for terrorism. Anybody can claim now anything is terrorism. It's ridiculous. Just yesterday or the day before yesterday, the U.S. government Department of Homeland Security now came out and said, If you criticize the government with misinformation, it's considered terrorism. So we're going down a slippery slope that all Americans should be concerned about. It's not about left or right. It's not about Democrat or Republican. It's about freedom and our freedoms are being under attack.

Speaker4:
And so, so in answer, I guess that was a long way to get to your answer. I wake up in the morning and I go, OK, what can I do now to help these people that are under assault, whether it's what their children are being taught at schools, whether it's being having to face quitting a job if they don't want to get a, you know, vaccine, you know that that maybe they're not comfortable with, you know, these are the choices people are faced with. And you know that I'm excited. You know, when I started building it and thought in twenty eighteen, I had no idea that by twenty twenty two we'd be locked in, you know, or 21, we'd be locked in our homes. Our businesses would be closed, our churches would be closed and our freedoms would be, you know, when I first started building it in twenty eighteen, they even denied shadow banning existed, right? I remember they Twitter would say, Oh, we don't shout to ban what's what is too much out of anything right now. Of course, they go way beyond that, and they just blatantly take people off the platform if they don't like what you're saying. And again, every American, every everyone, everywhere in the world and in the world because of the freedom that we should be concerned,

Speaker1:
I'm gravely concerned. Personally, I'm glad that you are doing this and leading the charge. And one of the questions I would have to you, and I don't know if you would have the answer. You're trying to find it daily. What what would your be your advice be to the rest of us in what can we do to help get our freedoms back because we've watched and experienced? Be chipped away, and you said it beautifully, you know, if you don't believe in a certain narrative, then you are squashed. I know you didn't say it that way, but that's what's happening and I love how you talked about misinformation. It's like, yeah, as defined by who, right? You know, and it's always their definition is, you know, when I say there, it's those that are in the power area that are causing all of the issues you are talking about as far as censorship and and just straight out deleting Twitter accounts. And they're basically trying to limit people's opinions that are, you know, what happened to freedom of speech. You know, both sides can debate, well, not anymore. Not in the society we or Canada apparently are in anymore. It's either their way or the highway. And if you don't comply, then you there are things that happen to you. I mean, they're trying to shut down Joe Rogan of all people I heard. It's like it's gotten crazy in a horrible way. What can people do? Jeff, is there some one place they can start, or they're multiple places that they can reach out to people and maybe start movements, whatever needs to be done to gain our freedoms back? This is scary stuff.

Speaker4:
The thing with the Canadian protests, what that demonstrated to us when we started to see the trucks line up and move down the freeways, we saw people lining the roads supporting them with flags. And I think it was a tremendous boost to them because they realize they're not alone. We all think the same thing, but what do we do? What action do we take? We don't know where to start, and we think we're just it's just me, you know, I don't see anybody else feeling that way. So when the truckers started moving and the people were lining the streets and waving their flags and offering them food, you know, and now there's tremendous sense of energy in Ottawa and other parts of Canada where it's a sense of pride, right? So what I would say to people is to realize you're not alone. There's most people want freedom. I believe in freedom. It's what's made America great. It's what's made America. The envy of the world is that we could criticize our president or our Congress or our mayor or anybody or governors, and we never had to worry about that. And suddenly we're you were seeing they're trying to, you know, you saw the parents going to the school board meetings being called terrorists by the FBI.

Speaker4:
It's ridiculous. And nobody should accept that. And that's the key. Don't accept it just because they try and paint us in that picture. Don't accept it. They can throw any label they want at us. They can call us terrorists. They can call us. You know what? They call on the other people in Canada. It's not. They're not using the word insurrectionists, but something like that, you know, but you know, they're just labels. But that doesn't make it true, you know, and people have to stand up. And if if we stand up and stand together, then they can't do this to us. And that's what we're seeing in Canada, right? And actually, you're going to see this in the United States very shortly. You're going to see people, the truckers in the United States start to convoy. And I would encourage all your people that are watching to stock up on food, you know, because once the truckers do move, they'll be shortages in the stores. And you want to make sure you have plenty of food and other things medicine that you need. But listen, that's a far less sacrifice than what would happen if we lose our freedom

Speaker1:
A great, great degree. And so I've always wondered this. I mean, it's difficult to change anyone's mind that has it really ingrained in themselves. There are people who have their opinions like you and I do based on what I consider to be facts. And then there's others that have their opinions based on what they're told through a somehow this happened a controlled media and I'm talking wide, unbelievable. A number of outlets that are all being controlled seemingly by one source. It just seems that way because you go from news station, a news station, a news station. I've seen footage of it where they literally parrot the exact same phrase every time on different networks, so they're getting their information from somewhere that's controlling it. Big Tech is involved. How did this get to where we're at? It's unbelievable that they somehow figure out how to control us all. And when you have folks that still believe in that approach, that policy, that they believe that we are all racist, that you and I because we're white, we are white supremacy by default. How do you how do you address someone or do you? I mean, how do you have that just an adult conversation with them and say, but here's the other side of it. Maybe you should look over here. Do you have any advice for that?

Speaker4:
Well, it's a great question. Great point. There certainly are some people who just are fixed in their minds of what they believe, and it's very hard to convince them. And to some extent, maybe that's not our role to convince everybody, but the people who are open. Minded to hearing other sides are the ones that we should speak to and try and help them to see the light. And I would encourage people to be hopeful. You can't hide a narrative forever, you know? And it ultimately gets revealed and we're starting to see that already, right? Last year, if you talked about the corona virus coming from the lab, you were kicked off social media. Now, today it's a given that started in the lab, you know, and we were told that if you take the vaccine, you're not going to get sick. And we know that that's not the case, that you will get sick. And you know, so you know, there's a joke about what's the difference between conspiracy theory and truth, and it's about nine months, right? So it's as good last year as conspiracy. You know, we're finding out. But listen, you know, let's go back to the seventies and eighties. What they're doing now is no different what big tobacco did with lung cancer and cigaret smoke, right? They tried to hide it and say, No, that's not the case. And then we started finding memos they had in their own files that showed that they knew there was risks of cancer, lung cancer by cigaret smoke. And now in every pack of cigarets, there's a warning. And so it's no different. But boy, what would have social media done in the seventies and eighties? Would they have sided with Big Tobacco and shut us down? They're basically deciding with Big Pharma today, you know that.

Speaker4:
And parents who are complaining that their children took the vaccine and, you know, had a had a negative outcome. We work with a lot of the doctors, you know, on cloud and we give everybody a platform, you know, it's free speech so anybody can come. And regardless, they can be liberal, they can be conservative, they can be in between. They can be wrong even. But that's free speech, you know, and it's not my role to say what's right or wrong. It's certainly we don't allow hate, we don't allow violence on our platform. But if it's just people talking about ideas and we encourage that because truth has a way of finding its way to the surface and we have to let people go through that process. When we when people come over from our platform for Twitter or Facebook, initially, they have this chip on their shoulder. They're angry, right? Because they've been being they've had to measure what they say in their own mind, self-censor themselves and don't feel hurt because the minute they say something that they want to say, they get a twenty four hour suspension, three days suspension, seven days suspension. But when they come over to cloud him and they're actually able to talk and have the discussions, and we welcome the tough discussions here after after a little bit of time there, you know, you just tell them all they wanted to do is be heard. And it's so true. Those who have children know that our children just want to be heard. And when they when they feel heard, then they're not as upset or angry or short tempered.

Speaker1:
So it's, you know, I'm so glad again, Michelle brought us together because this just just, I don't know, invigorates me to know that we have someone like you champion mean something this great. And what a great way to do it through a social media platform of all things, because they're so powerful when the word gets out and spreads. And, you know, it's so interesting that the funding got blocked. You know, you said that I had no no one. I had no idea that crowdfunding said, no, no, no. Two. I didn't know that you guys stepped in with clout hub. And then number three, I didn't know that the Canadian government somehow froze the funds like you.

Speaker4:
Kind of life would be boring, right? You sit there and go, wow, with what we deal with on a daily basis and the news cycle, you know, what did we do ten years ago, you know, was life boring?

Speaker1:
Well, it was a lot slower because we didn't have the internet flying with all these opinions and and things, but had paper newspapers. You had to wait till the next day for the next update instead of twenty four seven now. But yeah, and gosh, I always thought that technology was a good thing and it can be a good thing if it's used for good. But my gosh, it's crazy. I don't understand it.

Speaker4:
Well, you raise a good point. I mean, and you know, when when I tell people what I'm doing to build a social media platform and go, Oh, social media platform, oh yeah. But social media actually has tremendous power to be good, to do good. So it you know, when you look at what happened with social media, for the most part, you know, you had you had Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey who were very young when they started their platforms and they started. It basically lets just, you know, it was kind of more like a hobby, fun thing that they created and you know. And then they evolved through their 20s through their course of running a social media platform, right? So they, you know, they didn't know what they didn't know and they, you know, made some choices that maybe weren't the best choices for society. But now we have the, you know, and those are the first generations, you know, by the way, you know, only a 16 year old industry. Right? So now we have the ability to look back and say, OK, how can we do it better? And that's what I think Claudia is about is doing social media, right? So, you know, first of all, we're building it to bring people together, like in the intro you mentioned and giving them the tools they can share, their interests, their hobbies, you know, speak with their friends and family like you always want to do on social media, you know, connect.

Speaker4:
But we recognize that a society needs to be able to deal with issues and we give them the tools where they can join groups. They can share information, organize, mobilize, take action on the issues that impact their lives as we move forward. We will be building a civic hub where you can interact with your elected officials and allow federal, local and state level. And we'll also be building a faith hub where people can grow and, you know, share their faith and access, inspiration, movies, books, music, watch different services. And this would be for all religions. There'll be an education hub, there'll be an entertainment hub, a health hub, a sports hub, a finance hub, a marketplace, a business hub. All the things that in life shape your life and determine the quality of your life and also build up a stronger society. And after all, that's what social media can do and should do, right? Connect us to the things in life that enrich our lives. And so Kotb will be a more meaningful. So to speak, Facebook. The other thing about it is is where everything in one place, I think people are tired of going to YouTube for video, going to Facebook for this, going to Twitter for that and then Instagram and Clubhouse.

Speaker4:
And you know, we've got eight different accounts and we're trying to juggle them all in Cloud Hub. We have everything to do in Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, even Clubhouse. But we took it another step level higher. We put the presenters on video and then the audience is the avatars and they can actually interact with you. Instead of just having a chat off to the side where they text, they can actually verbally talk to you in your video and you can answer their questions, and you can actually charge people to come into the room. So if you were wanting to teach a subject, you could charge people to come in and teach them. If you just wanted to put on an interesting debate that people would be wanting to see, you could charge for that. If you are a musician right now, you're not really going out and touring because one club requires mask mandates. The next one requires vaccine passports. You know, you never know which one you're getting it to. So you could sit on your couch or in your studio at home and do a concert and people could pay to watch it. And you get five thousand people paying twenty dollars. That's one hundred thousand. You didn't leave your living room, you know? So it's actually a pretty cool tool, but that's, you know, so it's everything in.

Speaker4:
So we're using social media to connect you to the things in life that are meaningful. And then it's everything in one place. So. And by the way, by the way, also we we protect your privacy, which is really important. We don't play that game with the other platforms play. We don't dig into your phone. We don't track you where you're going. We don't look at what apps you're using or not. We don't even take the IP address you came in off. You know, it's completely private, and we think that's the way it should be to, you know, we never really agreed that when we join a social media platform, we give our right to privacy. I don't know where that came in, but that's not the case. We closed it. It's completely private and it was designed by a consultant in neuroscience that to make sure it was healthy because, you know, most social media platforms are addiction mills, really. They addict us to come back and back and back, you know, and watch their ads and cut ups. Not that it was a tool. You use it when you want to use it. If you don't use it, then you don't use it. But we're not going to. We don't do that. You know, we don't try and send you more extreme content to try and bring you back.

Speaker1:
Will there be the ability to advertise?

Speaker4:
Yes, there will be. So right now we have. We have video channels just as good as YouTube. People really like them, they you can live stream on cloud hook from. Everyone gets a channel, by the way, that joins cloud. If they get a free channel and they can upload videos or or go live. And from going live, they can use a third party software like you like, stream, yard or or stream or OBS or wire cast. Ok. They can. They'll go directly from their phone with no software and go live. If they're out an event or see a news story, they can just boom, go live. But they can also just go live from a webcam and record a live video. And all their subscribers at that time get a notice that they are alive and they actually get the video put in their in their public forum feed. So they our videos get a lot of views. And then the minute the live video is done, it automatically adds to your library and it's instantaneous. And then we also have groups like Facebook, but our groups are much more advanced than Facebook groups. You can have subgroups and then subgroups, the subgroups. So you could have a national organization with a subgroup for every state. And then within every state, you could have a subgroup for county or precinct or school district, you know, so people can really organize locally. And you can also, by the way, send messages to your members. Facebook doesn't allow you to do that, but in Cloud Hub, you can actually say, I'm going to message my members and I can message all my members. Or I might only want to message my members in Miami-Dade County and in Miami-Dade County members would get it. So, you know, it's it's really advanced that way. And it's all about communicating, mobilizing, take action, you know, and influence the issues you care about.

Speaker1:
You know what I think is a good time to give folks a visual of cloud hub itself. I was just, you know, you said you can go live even from this platform I'm using. I'm like, Are you kidding me? I would have set that up if I had known that I'm a tech geek. I'm an automation freak. I love everything to do with automation. You know, here's one question I should I go there? It's geeky. It's techie. Do you have any plans on integrating with Zapier? I checked right before we went live to see it. That was done yet.

Speaker4:
Yeah, it's it's not done yet, but yes, we will. I mean. All right. Any new platform is an evolution, right? Yeah, I look at it this way. At first we building the building blocks. We have video in our platform now we have groups, we have a discussion groups, we have the events now. You asked about advertising, that's what we're adding now we're adding business pages so businesses can come on and promote themselves. We're also adding the ability for our members to build place ads and run ads in the platform. And then we're also building a marketplace where people can you can sell merchandise through clutter. Yeah. So the page you have up now is it's basically our public forum.

Speaker1:
And I've got one friend and then we have there's news.

Speaker4:
Yeah, news and you can you can in the newsroom see different topics like, you know, health and entertainment and politics. And so you don't have to leave Cloud Hub. And by the way, you can, if you like, let's say you got Gateway Pundit right up there at the top. If you were to click on Gateway Pundit, go ahead and click on Gateway Pundit there in a column so you can now follow Gateway Pundit. And then when you when you follow them, you'll get their news articles delivered to you throughout the day. So as they put news, it'll show up in your public forum. So and you can see they are selling a channel, you could actually message them. So it's really interactive. In fact, if you were to go down and hit one of their stories, I'll show you something else. Go to the story. See, people can discuss the issues, the topic, you know,

Speaker1:
Over here on the

Speaker4:
Right. The new article? Right, right there. And so it's really quite interactive. And of course, you can share that into cloud have been to your public forum, that article. So it's really this

Speaker1:
Article is sourced from an entirely different website, correct?

Speaker4:
That's correct. It's Gateway Pundit.

Speaker1:
That is amazing how you've integrated that with the ability to comment and chat on it to the right. That is a unique, unique thing, right?

Speaker4:
So just even the two things we've looked at so far, which is the form and the news. I mean, when you when I say that we're much more than a Twitter alternative, you know, we really are. I mean, most of the other platforms, the getters, the Parler's, the, et cetera, are really Twitter knock offs. And that's all you do in them is post. And you know, what we're building is something more comprehensive. And listen, I'm not knocking them because every free speech platform is important. I'm just saying that we're we're we have a bigger vision. So if you if you go to groups, you know, and you could see some fairly decent sized groups in here and you know, you can go into the groups and you can create you see the subgroups. I mean, they could. I think you have to be the admin to create a subgroup, but you could create a subgroup under this for every state, you know, in the communicate that way to. And it's one of the moments that you have to be the admin to create.

Speaker1:
That's why I picked the wrong one. It has no picture, but that was one of the most intelligent women I've ever known or seen on TV. She's amazing. Candid.

Speaker4:
And then there's the channel, so this is the latest channel's the latest video, right? And if you were to click on Explore underneath the latest look so you can see you can pick topics, right? And that's as advanced as YouTube. You can pick topics and then see videos by those topics. But if you wanted to find something very specific, you go down to the next one, which is find. And then do a search and put in a top twenty two and hit enter, and it'll it'll find or go ahead, but whatever you want.

Speaker1:
If I hit the button, there we go.

Speaker4:
And then you have channels, but also you can hit videos at the top of the tab.

Speaker1:
Yeah, there we go.

Speaker4:
There you go. So, you know, it's really quite advanced and you hit any one of those videos. It should play very quickly. Um, you know, and

Speaker1:
So are you doing what are you doing your own? You have your own streaming servers, then your own bank of streaming servers or the video.

Speaker4:
We are protected.

Speaker1:
You knew what I was going.

Speaker4:
Yeah, yeah. We don't go into too much detail there because you don't want to really tip anybody off what you're doing or not doing.

Speaker1:
Okay? So let's not do that.

Speaker4:
Definitely. But I can tell you this we cannot be taken down like, you know what happened to Parler? Now you also see above the videos, there's a little like triangle with a three dots that's just share it. But then there's a bookmark one and then there's a little clock looking icon. So let's say you see something. I really want to watch this, but I don't have time now. If you were to click that little clock, it'll add it to your to watch list down in the left hand column, you know. Got it! And we also have bookmarks, and it keeps track of your history, too.

Speaker1:
So, yeah. Oh, neat.

Speaker4:
Yeah.

Speaker1:
So if I was a I'm sorry, if I was a live streamer and I just joined your platform, I mean, am I allowed to go live or do we need to be there for a while and do so many posts things like LinkedIn and you?

Speaker4:
If you just let us know we would make you live. We just got to know your username and we'll make you live. And then what we're doing right now would be live on cloud help you know your stream, your stream yard would connect you to it and would every time you go live, it would automatically broadcast through Cloud Hub.

Speaker1:
Yes, brother, I'm looking at that and you as another channel for sure. Destination on this is that through our top kind of thing or code.

Speaker4:
Yeah. In fact, go to hit my channel up there. That green button. Got it. So this is your channel. And right now you have watched a watch live upload video. But I could I could make you go give you a go live, but you're not hooked up anyway. So right?

Speaker1:
So it's why I brought it up. I talked to Michel, I was digging into it. This was some time ago now, but I couldn't find out how to go live, so I just kind of gave up at that moment.

Speaker4:
Eventually, we'll let everybody go live. But we're pre-revenue right now, so it can get very expensive to get everybody going live.

Speaker1:
We understand.

Speaker4:
Yeah, so but but for those of you who have shows and you know, I know like YouTube requires, you have a thousand followers or subscribers before they give you live. And but if you have a show elsewhere, we typically give you that ability.

Speaker1:
So how would I reach out to get that?

Speaker4:
If you were to write to support a and say, Jeff said, to give me a tough life, go live, they'll do it. Yeah, yeah. Okay, so that's OK. This is event. So this is the event. So like if you were to, I don't think you could outline, Oh, there we go.

Speaker1:
I just do that up today. That's why it's got one attendee. I did it kind of late, but so

Speaker4:
We could use this actually to do this broadcast, of course. And we've done, you know, we do the presidential rallies. We reached a partnership with Real America's Voice News to cover events like that, and they do it through hub events. But the code of events, you know, are really powerful. You would be on video and the audience is be on Avatar and you can get one hundred thousand people into there. So and like I said, you could charge people to come in and attend. So it's really, really good.

Speaker1:
Is it based on your following a number of friends that you have or that you're following regarding how many will actually see this out in your platform?

Speaker4:
So regarding what the channel or the event?

Speaker1:
Yes.

Speaker4:
Ok, so what happens with the channel is your you collect subscribers, right? So your subscribers get a notice that when you go live or upload a video and so they'll get a notice, but it also goes into their their public forum when they go. Ok. So that's what the other thing too is if you were to go to go to your channel again, if you don't mind which is my channel, the great, oh gosh. So you have a shared channel button. There you are. If you were to click that copy link the yeah, they would. So that actually is that what we call a fish hook. Wherever you put that, you put it in a in a Telegram group or in an email or a text message to your fans or in a Facebook group. The minute somebody touches that or you can post it under your YouTube channel, the minute they touch it, they come directly to your channel here and prompted to subscribe to your channel. So they didn't have to come through the front door of Kodak. They came directly to your channel.

Speaker4:
Ok. And then they were prompted to subscribe when they hit the Subscribe button. If they're not a member of cloud, if they get a very abbreviated little pop up that says, you know, sign up first name, last name, email address, username, password and then they're done. So because what happens is if you try and bring people in and they have to come through the front door, then they set up their profile, then they see a pretty picture or something and get distracted and never make it to your channel. Right? That that that fishhook exists if you launch it from your videos or your channel, if you launch it from your group or if you launch it from your profile. So if you're launching a profile there, they immediately come to your profile and have prompted to follow you. If you launch it from your group, they immediately go to your group. As always, it's a public group, and then they're prompted to join your group on a channel to subscribe. So it's it makes it easy for you to bring people over.

Speaker1:
I got to tell you, I mean, twenty eighteen. This is pretty robust already, so kudos to you for you and your team. Thank you. Very well thought through.

Speaker4:
I mean, just amazing. You can see it's it's a lot more intricate than, you know, some of the other platforms. So, you know, and even the connections tab there, this is how you find people. So. You know, you can find people you're interested in following, but even a term in their Mogga or Patriot or, you know, in that enter here and find people that you want to follow. So we try and make it easier to find people love it.

Speaker1:
Yeah. Directly, I could tell you,

Speaker4:
You can do direct messages, you also get notifications. You also get invites. You know, we get a lot more to do, though what you see here is, is it very advanced? And you know, I think pretty much everybody acknowledges that the technology behind this is like when you go into those events, what we're doing, nobody else is doing, you know where you're on video and people can actually talk to you. I don't know what you'd see if if you were to hit completed. I don't know if you since you haven't attended AA meetings, I'm not sure if it would show you any completed meetings on the left hand column, which is completed.

Speaker1:
Oh, gotcha. Oh, I'm clicking the wrong spot.

Speaker4:
Yeah, so so you haven't attended any meetings, so it's not showing you any, but you know, to go in and look at some old ones. If I knew how to share on screen, I guess I could share my my screen and show you. But that's all right. Yeah, but anyway, it's really quite advanced what people can do here. It's basically a virtual meeting. You can pass out handouts to the audience. You have breakout rooms where they can go into smaller meetings that

Speaker1:
Very much like Zoom.

Speaker4:
Yeah, exactly. And the audience can actually text chat among themselves while they're watching.

Speaker1:
And how many can be involved? Currently, I understand that this is a kind of in the beginning stages how many people can simultaneously be involved on a video through a meeting or an event?

Speaker4:
A hundred thousand

Speaker1:
At the same time.

Speaker4:
Yeah, yeah. One hundred and ten thousand people. A hundred thousand people can be in your event.

Speaker1:
Holy moly.

Speaker4:
Yeah. No, we we built this for real. We're not playing games.

Speaker1:
This is phenomenal. So, OK, I'm going to do some digging. I get to techie and geeky and ask too many questions because that's the way I loved it work.

Speaker4:
But yeah, so you're going to see an exclusive UFC fight March 19th and cloud him. You're also going to see an interview with Robert Malone in the near future. And we're actually working on putting a fundraiser for the doctors to help offset some of their costs that they're facing. You know, Peter McCullagh and other doctors are, you know, they're all under attack. And so it allows for them to raise some money again because you can charge people to come in.

Speaker1:
So that's great. And then so you'll be able to monetize through ads and maybe taking a share of of other shows or things. I mean, I think I don't care how you monetize, but I know that it'll be a great thing that you do because that will help you to scale and grow this thing even bigger and better. And I'm always a fan of that. And when I see somebody that's got a great cause, I always say this on the show. I wish for you the blessings of massive wealth because I know what you would do with that wealth. You would reinvest a lot of that toward building this platform. I can see you're passionate about it. There's no doubt in my mind or anyone who's watching and also splurging yourself. I hope you do that too and take advantage and of, you know, basically giving yourself a pat on the back and you deserve it, right? And so thank you ways. But I know you. I know you're that kind of person. You're I can tell by what you did just to get on this show that you had that it factor the drive, the determination, the flexibility, everything that goes into it. And I want people like you to be able to spread what you do further, wider and faster as much as possible. Thank you.

Speaker4:
Well, this is this is really a passion project for me. You know, when we do start to make money, a percentage of the revenue will go into a foundation. And because we're trying to promote people doing things in their community, whether that's improving a park or stuff like that painting our graffiti, they'll be able to apply to that foundation for grants. So it'll be a complete ecosystem. You know, we'll make money on a platform as big as what we have coming. It's very little of it will be from advertising. Actually, the existing platforms are almost ninety nine percent on advertising revenue, but they invade your privacy to do that. We're not, I believe, isn't that so there'll be lots of other ways for us to make money like those events. You know, people do the events. We take a percentage and we'll make it so you can charge people to join your group or or with a subgroup like you could create a one group that's free. But then you have your premium. You know that they can pay to be a member of and they get to see additional content the same way your channels you build to have an additional library that is premium content that they can if they pay twenty five dollars a year or three dollars a month or whatever, you decide they can see it. And then we would take a percentage of that, right? So we're in business together, the better you do, the better we do. So we're the problem on the other platforms is, you know, they they originally let you have tremendous reach. You know, you had one hundred thousand people, they let you and then they go, Oh, shoot, we have to make money. So if we let Brian reach his people by just posting, how do we get them to advertising, oh, we better let them only see five percent of his stuff. So see, they're competing with you. But on cloud, we're partnering with you. The more you love it, the more you do, the more we do, and we're happy to help you do more.

Speaker1:
This is genius. So, OK, I got a couple more very important questions. So for you, for your company to build and grow and you'll need some funding. Is there any public channels for people who wish to donate that you have available? Or are there other means that people can get involved to help grow this

Speaker4:
Platform so people can donate? They can go to Cloud Hub and there's opportunity on the side. It says Donate. And we greatly appreciate that because this is a this is a struggle. You know, it's not like everyone wakes up in the morning and decides they're going to go take on Facebook, you know, so it can be a daunting thing. But yeah, if you scroll up, I think there should be on the side. Something about donate go down a little bit back down a little bit. Yeah. Support cloud up. Gotcha. People can click that and then they can donate. And the other thing too is we are raising money. We're raising a seed round, investing round. And, you know, the minimum investments, ten thousand because it's an S.E.C. thing, you have to be a qualified investor. But OK, we're raising $3 million and that helps us through development and and grow the platform. We currently are just about four million people on it, and we have a plan, a very solid plan to add seven million more people by roughly fall. That will be a launching very shortly.

Speaker1:
I'm excited for you, and I'm excited that thank you for this wonderful tour of Cloud Hub. I learned so much just from having you on the show. I'm excited for I'm a tech geek and I'm I'm literally intrigued and excited with what you put together. I can't wait to dig in. I'm going to dig in deeper now, now that I can see what you have already and where you're going. This is something to get in front of and what I will say to everyone watching and listening, those watching video. Those listening on podcast, these are those these are those things that you know this it's been around for, what, almost four years right around there, and it's

Speaker4:
Still we launched it in November 2020.

Speaker1:
Oh, OK. So a couple of years, you know, three years, maybe I don't know. You set the month. I just I'm horrible at doing that stuff. But but, you know, remember when everyone was jumping on Clubhouse when it first started and you know, it was only iPhones, I was one of those that did not have an iPhone. I went, I don't have it out here. I went and bought a used one on eBay, so I could just get on Cloud Hub and it became, you know, a good rage for a while and I lost interest. It was just too much of a it was addicting too, and you could you could be on there for two hours and not even know it. This is one of those things where you thought of every angle. You're for the people, not for yourself to just make money off advertising. Everything you're saying is just ringing true with my value system, and I'm imploring of everyone out there listening to watching. It's free. Go in and jump in. Test the waters. If you like it, stick around. If you don't, then don't. It's OK. You're free to come and go and you're free to speak your mind.

Speaker1:
And just I don't know if this is what Jeff would say, but please be respectful of everyone else. Do it with an adult mindset just so we can keep everything going clean in the way that Jeff had envisioned. I'm sure there's got to be some level of a that's not allowed here, and we're not going to have that happen. But please be respectful. But this is one of those things. If you want to get out in front. This is the beginning of something huge, obviously with your vision, with Jeff's vision, this thing is going to go huge and businesses, groups, religious groups all can benefit from something like this. I can see it already. And so I would just say everyone get on the cloud. I don't have an affiliate link. It's not. There's nothing to pay for. Jump on there, get on there and connect with me. Connect with Jeff. I want to build my base and get great entrepreneurs together. I'm all into the business realm and let's let's make something great together, all of us. My goodness, I just look at the clock. Jeff, holy smokes were there. How did that happen?

Speaker4:
Know. All right, Brian, I greatly appreciate you having me on tonight and sharing this with your audience.

Speaker1:
Well, we're not done yet. I got one more question to ask you, and I got to give away the price. We got a few minutes. If you're OK with that hanging out in the hotel lobby. Appreciate that so much, brother. So I love to ask this question. It's a final question of every guest I have on the show. It's very profound in not the question itself, but the answers that come from it. And I love to do that, and it can be a little bit personal, but don't worry, it's not a big deal. Before I do that, I'm going to announce the prize I I promised in the beginning, which is a five night stay at a five star luxury resort. Compliments of the big insider secrets for those of you that are still on live. Here is what you do. So you now have just for a moment. You have both Jeff and my privilege. I'm speaking on behalf of Jeff Flake. I should write to take your gaze away if you need to, if you're watching it on a computer or something. But we need to do is bring up a browser and enter a URL. Here it is. It's coming up on the screen for these watching. It is our IP. I am forward slash vacation all lowercase R IP for vacation. Enter your information there. We give one of these away every single show. They are amazing. They are legitimate. You're not going to get whisked away to a timeshare where your water tortured for two hours in the basement. It's not that way. It's a legitimate vacation. It's amazing. And just as it's not nearly as maintenance, Jeff, but you know, it's pretty amazing. And so coming back to that main guy, Jeff, this is the crescendo of it all, Jeff. It is a huge question. And here's the cool thing about the question. We'll wrap this up. There is no such thing as a wrong answer to this question. So if there were any nerves, I don't see any of you. You're like, you're like nerves of steel. You're one of those ice men, I can tell.

Speaker4:
But I just had eight point six million dollars frozen. So for the Canadian truckers, anything you throw at me like nothing. I mean, that was that was so you. Yeah, this is dessert.

Speaker1:
Fair enough. Totally. That's awesome. I love this. Yeah. And the opposite is true. The only correct answer is yours. And that's that's what makes it personal. Nothing more. It's unique to you. So we're not getting into your personal business in any way, stretch or form. So are you ready? I know you are ready. All right. Here we go. Jeff Brain, how do you define success?

Speaker4:
Well, you know how I should define it. I'm not sure I'm following that, though lately. This is requiring it. You know, I think really success is having a level of financial success, but also personal life success. And having that balance, I think that went out the window, though, like probably about a year ago for me, for right now. But you know, when you're at this point trying to do what I'm doing and, you know, like fighting the battles, you know, to try and move forward. And it is a and that's, you know, your business program. So, you know, that's the thing you got to just keep moving forward, keep moving forward. But it requires a lot of time. So I'm not sure I have that balance right now. But you know, so I know in the textbook what it should be,

Speaker1:
And it's not necessarily what you have today, but how do you define it yourself? What is your what are you looking for so that,

Speaker4:
You know, for right now, it's a lot of hours every day, you know, seven days a week right now and a lot of hours and but eventually, I think that'll that will get beyond that. The platform will take all the life of its own and then we'll have enough staff, we'll have enough revenue and then I can relax a little bit more. Right now, it's a lot of work. And so and success for me would be when the platform is running or we can provide people money through that foundation. You know, I yeah, it's it's this is about, you know, changing the way we operate as a society. That's success as far as cloud goes.

Speaker1:
And that is what I call a bomb dropping moment. We had a little glitch with the animation. There it is. The sound should have been in tandem with the with the little bomb drop, but doggone it, I love that thing and it just failed me badly. There we go. Got to have it! Knowledge bomb smart bombs, bombs of wisdom. All from this amazing man. Jeff Brain Jeff, I thank you so, so very much. And now it's looping for being on the show. I appreciate your candid answers, your wisdom, your mission, your purpose, your drive, everything about you. And if there's anything I personally can do to help you, please don't hesitate to reach out and let's let's make something big happen together.

Speaker4:
Thank you, Brian. It's been great to be on your show.

Speaker1:
All right. Thank you, Jeff. With that, I am your host. Brian Kelly of the Mind Body Business Show will be back again next week with another great guest.

Jeff Brain

Jeff Brain – CEO of CloutHub... Have you ever dreamed of a social media platform that brings people together and connects them to the things and people that enrich their lives and build up society, rather than tears it down? Where voices can be heard, the authentic discussion is allowed, and diverse ideas can be civilly debated? That’s what Jeff Brain envisioned when he set out to create CloutHub, a social network designed for meaningful civic and social engagement. Existing social media platforms have become abusive, invasive, and unhealthy. Even still they have transformed commerce, relationships, and business. What is missing Is a platform that brings people together and enables them to access information and tools that allow them to address the issues that impact their lives, communities, society, and country. Jeff is on a mission to bring people back together and empower them to connect, socialize and impact the issues that they care about. CloutHub is a place where free thinkers and speakers can go beyond simply posting in exchange for likes, but actually making a difference. CloutHub is social That matters!
