All right up next is Dominic from San Francisco California but he sent us a video question before we go to his call.
Yeah I think it might call first thank you very that you might -- over.
The my -- and -- a month ago mindset to.
Access to grade my questions you -- -- we're trying to get to keep things.
Process -- and there.
My -- out and we kind of for.
We're trying to see if we -- -- that.
We need your help us.
The army in -- -- really.
Like -- -- -- in San Francisco I Dominic how are you tonight.
David the -- I'm doing fine thanks -- pick micro treatment absolutely -- -- -- even playing piano.
-- -- I've been quietly while Brent and all the prevention of -- out probably for about forty you're so calm cool and what's mr.
piano is worth about 171000 dollars so we eat.
Nice -- what is she.
Obviously -- -- hot seat to -- for -- five foot seven ground.
-- only absolutely.
Gonna yum yum yum -- on my house only difference is I can't play.
All right so how much you guys making your household income.
How -- about a hundred grand a year and you've got a a debt of how much that you're trying to clean up.
-- kind and what else have you got that you're thinking of selling.
Well we've been kind of going through you know little things in the garage you're there and you know we're -- we don't have a -- lot of doors and of course -- you know what what sawed off and stop them out of our studio.
I Miguel contract goes well but I have a studio so I have all my management -- -- in the studio and you know I would get the idea or out of maybe even get rid of -- couple -- yourself but -- -- thought well you know I do I really need to have a -- -- -- -- in my living -- -- You know maybe I could sell it and get -- a whole lot less well I'll tell you how long have you had that particular piano.
My iPad that piano for about three years.
And cut so it's not a big emotional thing it's -- -- piano.
Well it's emotional I -- my -- my little three year old from always play that he's never known.
The house without the piano got the emotional part of it.
How about and we can put a 2000 dollar keyboard and their right to -- exactly and -- I mean for three years old he won't know the difference.
Now another Mozart I mean you know.
I mean -- -- so that's the emotional part -- here's what I would look at.
I I'm in Nashville and -- -- financial counseling for twenty years -- -- -- work with a lot of musicians many of them high end and I got a lot of friends in the music business as well.
And I'm not a musician so I I have trouble relating but I have come to figure out that these particular instruments.
They become a part of you if -- tornado on the -- twenty years -- make a lot of difference.
You know because it really does -- mean you guys wrap your hearts around these things certain guitars for certain -- -- country artists are a big deal.
I would almost if it was that big I would equate it with selling -- -- to gauge murmuring.
And I would I never do that you know battered -- like about them not just saying I would never do that and but I know this thing is more like.
The need the diamond earrings you gave her on your tenth anniversary she -- somebody it's not the end of the world and we can get another pair bigger if we get out of that.
So -- leaves this kind of on the bubble what I would do if I were in your shoes is I would fight this debt snowball tooth and nail.
And see how much of -- we can knock out how much progress we can make.
And just set a date that by this date if we're not making really good traction and to find really good traction.
Both you and your wife write it down we're going to be we're gonna hit this goal by the state or I am gonna give up the piano.
But I don't think I'm some -- -- today I think I'm gonna say.
October put -- at this today.
I'm putting a -- on Craig's list.
Or buy in January if we don't hit this mark you see what I'm saying.
Yeah absolutely don't for a -- keep -- it and if you can get traction in some good stuff happens and you start knocking that out and you see you can make get them.
You know -- -- term buy another 118 months letter to make any sense.
-- -- not if it is holding you back big time in your crawl on out.
And then maybe it's gonna break something loose is that a fair summary.
That's not -- -- what I did to prepare for sure yeah but -- -- -- with your wife and make some some mathematical marks in your goals.
That this is our desire this -- acid test we do this by this date we keep the piano we don't do it we don't keep the piano.
Not your five dollars off you can argue about that but if you're tens of thousands of dollars often it's got to go or more in the right direction and we can keep it -- --
