Jack Butala: Jack Butala with Jill DeWit

Jill DeWit: Yee-haw.

Jack Butala: I know it’s coming now. It’s crazy creative stuff. Welcome to our show. In this episode, Jill and I talk about motivation week. It’s Friday. This is show five of five shows. Enjoy the lifestyle.

Jill DeWit: Woo-hoo. That’s where that’s going.

Jack Butala: That’s what this is all about.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: It’s not working our whole life. Enjoy it for us. We kept the companies around. We didn’t sell out. They produce a bunch of properties all the time. I think the people who work there are pretty happy.

Jill DeWit: Yeah. It’s kind of like we keep the kids around.

Jack Butala: Step five literally is enjoy the lifestyle. Live the lifestyle, share with other people. That’s what we do. That’s what Land Academy is. Great show today Jill. Before we get started, let’s share something interesting about our lifestyle. It happened to us recently.

Jill DeWit: I would love for you to please share a snippet about what is coming, and what you’re doing in the mornings involving your motorcycle, and a Go-Pro, and the ocean view.

Jack Butala: Yeah. Every morning, I get up and I get on a motorcycle, and I drive like crazy actually.

Jill DeWit: I’m not on the back, by the way.

Jack Butala: It’s kind of my head-clearing whatever. I started doing it awhile ago. I got this crazy idea a few weeks ago, about a month ago, to snap a Go-Pro camera on my helmet and make a show out of it, or just share it with … Long story short, just share it with everybody, but it became a show. There’s this thing called moto-vlogging, which I didn’t realize until I started looking into it, where these crazy people, there’s a guy in London on YouTube that goes racing around London talking to people about whatever. I don’t even know what the show’s about, but it’s just amazing to see this guy blowing through the streets of London, so I figured, “Hey, we’re in Los Angeles, Scottsdale, whatever, same deal. It came out great. That is how I’m enjoying this lifestyle.

Jill DeWit: I love it.

Jack Butala: that was the end result of all of this. We’re not trying to make any money on this yet. Quite honestly, it costs a lot to get the stuff produced and the whole deal. It’s something I’m doing anyway, and filming it, and talking while it’s happening. It’s not such a bad idea.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: If I can motivate one person to get some deals done by showing them that crazy stuff that I do in the morning, then it worked.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: I love doing it.

Jill DeWit: It’s just fun. I didn’t realize until you brought up to me the one that you saw. He’s in England you said what, racing through London?

Jack Butala: Yeah, London, England.

Jill DeWit: I mean, that’s good scenery too, but the scenery that you have right here out our door-

Jack Butala: Oh my gosh.

Jill DeWit: You brought that to my attention. “Jill, you don’t realize half of the country, or whatever, they don’t know what this looks like. They have no idea.”

Jack Butala: I’m just a kid from Detroit. I didn’t even know that no, it’s not what it looks like. I didn’t even know it was here.

Jill DeWit: Ah.

Jack Butala: I didn’t know how you people live out here.

Jill DeWit: Yes.

Jack Butala: You know, it’s a dream come true. The weather’s nice all the time, there’s gorgeous people everywhere. You’ll see it on the …

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: I go racing by them at 110.

Jill DeWit: It’s fun. Jack comes back talking about the pretty women exercising along the beach, and the, oh my gosh, those cars, and like, “I didn’t know that car was out yet,” kind of thing.” We see vehicles we’ve never heard of all the time.

Jack Butala: Yeah.

Jill DeWit: Even the other day we were at a, just walking through a little car show, and I’m like, “That’s a McLaren right there.

Jack Butala: Yeah. Listen to you.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: Then I started looking at these houses that we’re passing and just commercial properties and the whole thing, and so I looked it up, and I’m passing 10, 20, and 30 million dollar houses.

Jill DeWit: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Jack Butala: In the video, some of them I point that out with a graphic, “This is 20 million bucks, 30 million bucks.” It’s pretty cool.

Jill DeWit: This is what 30 million will get you right here.

Jack Butala: It came out really good. The videos, they came out pretty good.

Jill DeWit: It’s going to be fun. I’m glad you’re doing that.

Jack Butala: That’s how I’m enjoying my lifestyle. You’re welcome to feel bad for me, because it’s a little bit weird.

Jill DeWit: Or you’re welcome to join me and ride right next to me.

Jack Butala: Yeah. That’d be fun too.

Jill DeWit: There’s a meetup, Jack’s meetup. Yeah.

Jack Butala: Wow. See how stuff comes out in the show. That’s a good idea.

Jill DeWit: Dude. You should have your own motorcycle meetup.

Jack Butala: What the hell is wrong with her? Yeah, that’s my wife. “Dude, dude.”

Jill DeWit: That made me snort. Nice.

Jack Butala: Every once in awhile someone says that to me, “Are you calling her dude?” I’m like, “Yeah dude.”

Jill DeWit: Yeah. My favorite is when you do the dude slap. That’s what you do. You go, “Dude,” and you hit me in the arm like I am your dude. It is so darn funny. It’s almost like you’re like, “Dude,” and you slap and you hand me a beer. All right. I wonder why people are confused about our relationship.

Jack Butala: Yeah. I’m confused, that’s why.

Jill DeWit: That’s so good.

Jack Butala: I wonder if other people do this stuff. I don’t see other people treating each other that way.

Jill DeWit: No, I see them yelling at each other.

Jack Butala: I see a lot of guys, they have what I call his mom wife.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: You had a mom, now you have a wife that’s pretty much the same thing.

Jill DeWit: That’s hilarious. “Pick up the kids at 4:00, and make sure you put that in the oven.”

Jack Butala: “Why didn’t you take the trash out?” That kind of stuff.

Jill DeWit: “I told you-”

Jack Butala: “You know I don’t like that restaurant.” This is fun. Keep going.

Jill DeWit: “Who taught you to park? Let me drive.” That’s great. “Are you really going to go out looking like that?”

Jack Butala: “No, no. You’re doing that all wrong.”

Jill DeWit: Oh my gosh.

Jack Butala: “Give me that hammer. Go outside and play.”

Jill DeWit: That’s so good. “You know that’s not my favorite color.”

Jack Butala: “You know I can’t stand daisies.”

Jill DeWit: That’s so good. That’s so good.

Jack Butala: “Eat your broccoli.”

Jill DeWit: I’m laughing too hard. I can’t think of them now.

Jack Butala: You know, I don’t even know what the show’s about. Oh wait, we were enjoying our lifestyle.

Jill DeWit: We are enjoying our lifestyle. This is just, oh that’s so good. Okay.

Jack Butala: Classic stuff.

Jill DeWit: All right.

Jack Butala: Before we actually get into the show, I guess this kind of is the show, but before we do that, let’s take a question posted by one of our members on, our free online community. I should say, we don’t make any money on that, not a dollar, on successplant.

Jill DeWit: Oh. I’m like, “Huh? What?” I’m still laughing. I’m sorry.

Jack Butala: We should say this stuff more often.

Jill DeWit: My eyes are watering I was laughing.

Jack Butala: we don’t make money on anything really, except the sale of buying and selling real estate.

Jill DeWit: All right. Jonathan from Wisconsin asks, “I just got a signed offer back from a seller on a property in Wisconsin, and it’s in the deceased father’s name. The son signed the offer. Please help.”

Jack Butala: That’s all you Jill.

Jill DeWit: Well, I’m sorry. I’m still laughing about this stuff like that. All right.

Jack Butala: “I told you not to touch my computer.”

Jill DeWit: It’s in the deceased father’s name.

Jack Butala: I’m still saying stuff that spouses say to each other.

Jill DeWit: Oh, see, you got me distracted here too.

Jack Butala: “Don’t touch my computer ever again.”

Jill DeWit: All right, you are so silly. You are so silly.

Jack Butala: Actually, that’s a sentence that I heard in my own life recently, but with a lot less venom.

Jill DeWit: Okay. If it’s in the dad’s name, we got to get it in the son’s name unless there’s a reason the son can sign on his behalf. I’m questioning is there a … I’m trying, thank you.

Jack Butala: This happens a lot in our business. There are significant discounts that you can get when you’re purchasing property, way less than what it’s worth, when you’re solving these type of estate problems. There are certain members that we have who have become experts and maybe, every state’s different, they’ve become experts in estate, and they seek these problems out so they can solve them and purchase the property and get the owner a check. We’re experts in it in several states, so Jonathan, if you’re brand new, I want you to forget about this deal because it’s complicated, and it’s like step nine in all the steps. You want to do a really easy deal, let’s say your first 10 deals, you want to be super easy. The guy that owns it is a person you’re talking to on the phone and done. You make a few grand on each one or more, and you learn.

This is a very, very, very common issue, these estate issues and I’m going to reel off a real short list of problems that, there’s no way we can know what’s going on and really answer the question without asking like six or seven questions, and here they are. Was there a will? Did the estate go through probate? Is Wisconsin an affidavit short probate state like California is, where you just file some stuff? Sometimes we do it right with the recorder and change the name. Does the seller have any siblings? On and on. I can list a lot of stuff. Sometimes it’s very simple, it’s incredibly simple, and sometimes it’s just un-doable. I have, in our database, 9,000 situations where we could not fix this estate problem for the seller, 9,000.

Jill DeWit: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Jack Butala: We’ve sent millions of letters out, literally.

Jill DeWit: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Jack Butala: [inaudible 00:10:07] Yeah, there’s a lot of situations. I always threaten to hire somebody to go in there and do some of those deals, the best ones.

Jill DeWit: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Some of them, we’ve talked to our members about this, some of the times, it involves an attorney, and then by the time you pay for the attorney, that makes the deal not worth doing. You’ll find that out. That’s, I think why Jack is saying to put this aside, move onto the next one, and if you don’t have one, wait a few days, it’s coming. Do the easy ones.

Jack Butala: Yeah. Send some more mail out.

Jill DeWit: Right, because you could get bogged down and spend a week on this, when you could have done 10 easy ones.

Jack Butala: Yes, or a year. That’s right Jill.

Jill DeWit: That’s the part that I get frustrated with folks are. Why are you working on this, and hitting your head against the wall, and trying to become an attorney right now? Did you want to be an attorney today? No.

Jack Butala: One of the things that I offer our members is something called deal review. Every Wednesday, people schedule calls with me, and for a small amount of money, we look at the deals that they’re doing. I always am threatening to publicize, because they’re recorded, and I always ask the members, “hey, can I use this,” and they always say yes. I’m threatening to publish those, and I will actually, at some point.

Jill DeWit: Threatening [inaudible 00:11:13]. Sharing is a proper word.

Jack Butala: Oh sharing. I’m sorry, sharing.

Jill DeWit: Sharing. It’s like that card I saw the other day, “Stalker is rather harsh. I prefer Valentine.” Not threatening, you’re sharing and offering.

Jack Butala: That’s fantastic.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: The prevalent thing that comes through a lot of these deal review calls is, “Should I do this deal?” If you don’t know you should do the deal or not, then don’t do it.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: There’s something that, it should be smacking you in the head saying, “Yeah I’m going to do this deal. It’s crazy how good this deal is.” In the last call, one of the calls that I had recently, I’ll remember it forever. I just kept saying, they kept saying, “Should we do these deals?” They were negotiating, going back and forth, and doing all the classic stuff that we have all been taught that’s wrong. Send a bunch of letters out, offers out, the ones that come back that are real easy to do, get them done.

Jill DeWit: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Jack Butala: When those stop, and they never stop, by the way. Jill and I are getting offers back, signed offers back from 2004, and before that, but do the easy ones. That’s why you make them come to you, and you review them, and it’s at your leisure. You don’t have to do every single deal. This is complicated. I can tell right now that he’s struggling with it.

Jill DeWit: Yes, but you know what, sometimes you just need to be told it’s okay to pass it and move on. It’s not you Jonathan.

Jack Butala: Yeah, it’s not you.

Jill DeWit: Put it aside and come back.

Jack Butala: Yeah, you’re not, hey, I’m from the Midwest too pal. We all, it’s a big suffering contest up there. Whoever suffers the most wins. It’s a funny little culture up in the Midwest.

Jill DeWit: We don’t have that out here.

Jack Butala: I know. I love it out here.

Jill DeWit: Last one to the beach is a rotten egg.

Jack Butala: You worked eight hours today, you’re an idiot.

Jill DeWit: Wow, exactly. Why did you do that? That’s exactly right. You worked eight hours, you’re an idiot. That’s so funny.

Jack Butala: I can hear all of east coast is rolling over right now. They’re never going to listen to this show ever again.

Jill DeWit: Oh my gosh.

Jack Butala: My father refuses to come to the state of California and visit his kids, his grandchildren.

Jill DeWit: Come. It’s hilarious. Arizona makes the cut, which is weird, but California, no way.

Jack Butala: It’s a democrat/republican problem. I’m sure of it. Yeah, yep, everyone’s slacking off out here, and we like it.

Jill DeWit: You said that today. We were on the beach at, I don’t know, on our bikes on Tuesday at 2:00, and Jack’s looking around going, “You know what? This is our people.” It’s true.

Jack Butala: This all ties into the topic today.

Jill DeWit: It ties into the lifestyle.

Jack Butala: The lifestyle, yeah.

Jill DeWit: Yay. That’s it. What’s your lifestyle.

Jack Butala: That’s the prelude right there. Hey, this is show five of motivate Friday. It’s Friday, motivation week.

Jill DeWit: I know.

Jack Butala: This is what this is all about. Enjoy yourself.

Jill DeWit: I’m going to recap.

Jack Butala: Yeah.

Jill DeWit: One, week one on Monday was visualizing the end. Two, start, that was Tuesday, learn. You’ve got to start somewhere. Learn, get the education from the right people, and from more than one person. Get a bunch of people.

Jack Butala: If you have to squirt yourself with Lysol after you learned how to do something about real estate, that’s not the right person.

Jill DeWit: Lysol is in a can. You don’t squirt anything.

Jack Butala: Keep it out of your eyes.

Jill DeWit: Yeah. Spray, silly.

Jack Butala: “I told you not to spray that in my eyes.”

Jill DeWit: Oh my gosh. “You bought the wrong can.” Three is doing it, your first deal. Just get out there and do it. You got this. By the way, after 10, you’re going to feel differently. If you can just get through 10, you got this. Four is, now you got that, you’re moving along, make a system. Remove yourself from the stuff you don’t like or you’re not the best at. You will have isolated it by now. There’s things that we do in our world that I can do that I don’t want to do, and I’m not really that good at it.

Jack Butala: Don’t make a system in the beginning, by the way.

Jill DeWit: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Jack Butala: Just get those deals done.

Jill DeWit: Yeah. Do it all yourself in the beginning, and then go.

Jack Butala: Yeah. That’s right Jill.

Jill DeWit: Five, which is today, Friday, now you’re coasting. You’re enjoying the lifestyle, and that’s what we’re talking about.

Jack Butala: You know, here’s a secret, I have a problem with this, really just core enjoying myself. I could never just do nothing. We just talked about this, now this video show I’m going to do. That’s a lot of time and energy on it.

Jill DeWit: Is it the Midwest part of you that thinks that you just have to keep pushing, because I don’t have that?

Jack Butala: I don’t know. I love learning stuff. I’m learning all about video production. Maybe I can ride off a new motorcycle tax-wise if this thing works too.

Jill DeWit: That’s funny. I struggle with the other thing. I struggle with, “I got to get this done. I’ve got to get focused. I need to work. The sun’s shining. I can hear the beach. I should be there.”

Jack Butala: I should force myself to have more leisure. I don’t know.

Jill DeWit: I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

Jack Butala: I don’t think you need to force yourself harder at all.

Jill DeWit: Thank you. You don’t think I do?

Jack Butala: No.

Jill DeWit: Oh.

Jack Butala: I think we’re opposites that way, but I vicariously live through you that way a lot. I probably never told you that. It’s a big benefit to our friendship.

Jill DeWit: Thank you.

Jack Butala: I love to see you go have fun, and horse around in the middle of the week. Isn’t Monday night some girlfriend thing that you have?

Jill DeWit: It was, but now that show’s over, so we’re going to have to find a new one.

Jack Butala: Oh my God. There’s not a book club anymore, it’s just the Bachelorette?

Jill DeWit: You know what’s funny? I got to share this. We don’t have a TV, so if I want to watch something, we’re going somewhere. Jack and I made a decision, and I love it.

Jack Butala: Me too. It worked out great.

Jill DeWit: When we moved out here to the beach, it was kind of like we kind of forgot about it. It was kind of an afterthought, and now we’re like, “Gee I don’t really miss it.”

Jack Butala: I stood at Best Buy looking at TVs like six times and I never pulled the trigger, and finally it’s just like, “I’m not going to buy a TV.”

Jill DeWit: Yeah, I don’t want one. We got really close recently, and I had that girl gut feeling. I’m like, how weird is this? I don’t feel comfortable hanging a TV in our home.

Jack Butala: That’s great.

Jill DeWit: It’s the weirdest thing, and Jack’s like, “All right, we’re out of here.” You’re like, “That’s fine. I don’t need to spend this.”

Jack Butala: That’s all I needed to hear man.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: I don’t think I was buying it for me anyway. It’s like, it was for our kids and all that. They’re the last people that should be watching TV.

Jill DeWit: Well what I think is the funniest thing is we had a friend, we had all the kids here recently and one brought a girlfriend, and we were talking about and she said, “Oh yeah, I didn’t even notice you don’t have a TV.” She hadn’t even noticed, and she’d been here for 10 days. They’re out doing this, doing that, that’s the way you’re supposed to.

Jack Butala: That’s what’s supposed to happen. You know, when I was a kid, we had a cabin in Traverse City Michigan way at the top. My sister lives there now. Not at the cabin, but in that town. There was no TV there and there was a TV, but there was a TV in the corner, but it was so rural there was no reception. This was before internet and before cable TV.

Jill DeWit: You’re lucky if you got one channel?

Jack Butala: Yeah, even then it was all fuzzy, so we just, it never got used. That always stuck with me, like what’s different about up there, then why don’t, my point was, you know what I took away from that? Why don’t I just live in a fun place like this all the time and never watch any TV. Now I’m a full-blown adult, and it’s actually really happening.

Jill DeWit: You associated it with a fun place, not home, because home’s not fun.

Jack Butala: Yeah, home sucks. You got to go to school.

Jill DeWit: Your parents are there.

Jack Butala: You got to eat vegetables.

Jill DeWit: Your wife’s there.

Jack Butala: Your mom lives there. “I told you not to watch that TV station.”

Jill DeWit: “Have you still not taken out the trash?”

Jack Butala: Why is this so much fun?

Jill DeWit: I know. Our whole show is supposed to be about enjoying the lifestyle and all we’re doing is bashing other people’s lifestyles.

Jack Butala: This guy, I got to tell this story. It’s right on the edge of not being appropriate for this show, but I don’t care. This guy that I’ve known for a long time came into a watering hole that I go to in Scottsdale, and he met a girl that, they met each other through this group that I’m in, this social group that I’m in. I knew these two people individually before they met. He came in one day and said, “We were having relations together and she was telling about how I was incorrectly doing it.” “You’re doing this wrong again. I told you last time not to do it this way. I like it the other way.” We were crying laughter.

Jill DeWit: Oh.

Jack Butala: This is a lot of years ago. This isn’t recently at all.

Jill DeWit: That’s hilarious.

Jack Butala: “You’re doing it wrong again.” I can just hear her saying that too. It’s just some classic stuff.

Jill DeWit: I got to ask, did they get married?

Jack Butala: No. They’re together though. They live together.

Jill DeWit: Still?

Jack Butala: Yeah. You know who I’m talking about. I’m not going to even come close to mentioning any names.

Jill DeWit: Okay good, thank you. I’ll ask you off the air.

Jack Butala: Yeah.

Jill DeWit: Oh, that’s sad. Awe. That’s really funny. All right, let me turn this around. How about our lifestyle? I’m going to bring this back up to G rated here.

Jack Butala: “You’re doing it wrong again.”

Jill DeWit: Our lifestyle rocks. We have a system. You know what?

Jack Butala: We went through these five stages.

Jill DeWit: We did. Here’s what’s interesting. What you and I, or at least from, maybe not you and I, what I visualized Jack, at the end, was not the things that we’re now going forward with. We met what we set out to do, and then along the way, Land Academy came along, and “Hey this is kind of fun,” and so now-

Jack Butala: It’s just led to more companies too now.

Jill DeWit: It did. Now I’m visualizing a whole new set of things/however the pressure’s off and I love it.

Jack Butala: Yeah, yeah, the pressure’s off.

Jill DeWit: Whatever that lifestyle is, depending on the person, you’re probably not going to retire and just say, “Well I’m out,” kind of thing like us. I hope everybody’s good people. Now you’ve met this lifestyle. Now’s your time to let’s give back and start doing some other good stuff for other people, by the way, start sharing some of this. That’s what’s important to us and some of the stuff going forward, there’s a lot more sharing, and a lot more things, because we’re good. This is part of our, that actually is part of our vision anyway, because we’re both those kind of people.

Jack Butala: A company that we’re moving forward with right now, one of them is to make this ridiculously simple for new people, where you just input some stuff, like an APN, Assessor’s parcel number, the state and county that it’s in, and it does everything else for you.

Jill DeWit: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Jack Butala: You got some mail back. You got a signed offer back, and you need to research, there’s a lot of steps. I am going to make real estate investing very, very easy for land and houses and mobile homes and all of it. That’s our whole plan. That’s a blast. I love working on that stuff.

Jill DeWit: It is. You know what? Maybe that was it. For us, our lifestyle is setting us up so no matter what we want to test, and do, and dream up, or whatever, we always have the lifestyle that we want to fall back on.

Jack Butala: Jill and I have kicked around the idea of capping the number of Land, well we haven’t kicked around it, we’re going to do it.

Jill DeWit: We are going to do it.

Jack Butala: We are going to cap the number of people that are involved in our group.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: We haven’t released the numbers yet, or the time frame, but it’s going to happen.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: I think-

Jill DeWit: We want to go do some other good stuff.

Jack Butala: Yeah, exactly.

Jill DeWit: With those people.

Jack Butala: Yes, exactly.

Jill DeWit: Yeah.

Jack Butala: The people that make the cut and are using the system, not people who just join and use it as a doorstop. I’m serious.

Jill DeWit: Yeah, it’s true.

Jack Butala: If you’re motivated.

Jill DeWit: Dated a doorstop. I forgot about that. We had that awhile back.

Jack Butala: Yeah. It’s not, dated a doorstep is not dated a doorstop. God, it’s a perfect line. Stay motivated. That’s the end of it. “You’re buying one of those silly programs again?”

Jill DeWit: Oh gosh.

Jack Butala: “You never finish what you start.”

Jill DeWit: “We are not investing in a property like that.”

Jack Butala: “Don’t you know what makes me happy?” “Do I have to tell you every single time?”

Jill DeWit: “Yes, my mother is moving in.”

Jack Butala: Oh my gosh.

Jill DeWit: It’s Friday, it’s Friday.

Jack Butala: This show went way over.

Jill DeWit: It did, because it’s Friday. I love it.

Jack Butala: Join us in another episode where Jack and Jill discuss how to use information, that’s me-

Jill DeWit: And inspiration, that’s me-

Jack Butala: To get just about anything you want.

Jill DeWit: We use it every day, automated hopefully, to buy property for half of what it’s worth, and sell it immediately.

Jack Butala: You are not alone in your real estate ambition. All right, give me one that you saved up.

Jill DeWit: Oh my gosh. It’s so darn funny. I liked the, that S-E-X one you dropped there, relations, that was pretty funny.

Jack Butala: Yeah.

Jill DeWit: Shucks. There’s just like, well, can you imagine booking a vacation and being told you booked it to the wrong place when you were trying to be romantic and do something funny. I’ve heard of that one.

Jack Butala: I have been informed not from just one person in my life, but multiple people in my life that I need to stop buying the wrong flowers.

Jill DeWit: Oh. You know what? I got a good one.

Jack Butala: That’s a crap, you know, “Don’t you know what kind of flowers I like?”

Jill DeWit: “You didn’t tell me it was going to be this cold.”

Jack Butala: Just for men, here’s a, for all you men who are listening to this, “I’m cold.” Really? “I’m hot.” I can do something about that. What the hell? What is that?

Jill DeWit: Exactly. “You did not tell me it was going to be like this.” “You didn’t tell me it was going to be this expensive.” “You didn’t tell me the food was going to be this awful.” “You did not tell me I should have packed this way.” “You did not tell me I should have dressed up more.”

Jack Butala: Let it out Jill.

Jill DeWit: Oh my gosh.

Jack Butala: You got some in there man.

Jill DeWit: I do. This is good. This is fun.

Jack Butala: This is like therapy.

Jill DeWit: I like this. This is stuff you can’t ever say, you should never say, and you shouldn’t even think like that, but you hear people doing it. I’m just having fun rattling off because you know people are out there, they do this. You know? Oh my gosh. “You didn’t tell me childbirth was going to be like this.” Come on. There’s a lot.

Jack Butala: Women have a tendency to think that men really can read their mind.

Jill DeWit: Yeah, and you can fix everything quickly.

Jack Butala: Yeah. “Don’t you know what I’m thinking? How can you not know what I’m thinking?”

Jill DeWit: Right.

Jack Butala: And feeling.

Jill DeWit: “You did not tell me that brand new car was going to be that color red. That’s not my color.” Could you imagine? Somebody out there, somebody said that.

Jack Butala: Oh yeah. This whole notion of just feelings is foreign to men. Men don’t feel anything. They just think about stuff.

Jill DeWit: Yeah. I have learned that over the years, I have.

Jack Butala: I have like three feelings and emotions in my whole ensemble of feelings, and they’re all extremely opposites.

Jill DeWit: I think I saw one of them earlier.

Jack Butala: Wow. That’s not going to make the show.

Jill DeWit: It’s a feeling. It’s just the way you emotionally-

Jack Butala: Oh you mean when I was brushing my teeth? Yeah.

Jill DeWit: That’s it.

Jack Butala: Oh yeah. I like when my teeth are clean.

Jill DeWit: Oh my gosh. I love it. All right, what are your three?

Jack Butala: Pretty much happy, angry, and-

Jill DeWit: Disgusted. Just kidding.

Jack Butala: It’s like happy, angry, and euphoric.

Jill DeWit: Ah. Happy, not happy’s different from, there’s no medium? What’s your medium?

Jack Butala: There’s not a lot. Not really.

Jill DeWit: You don’t have a coasting, just kind of an in-between?

Jack Butala: Huh-uh.

Jill DeWit: Hmm.

Jack Butala: You have like nine million emotions, I know.

Jill DeWit: I kind of do.

Jack Butala: That’s fine.

Jill DeWit: One of the things that I know it drives you crazy that how my day is going to go is based on just what, I usually do wake up happy, in a good mood, and that’s true, but sometimes I’m really excited about stuff that’s coming up, and my whole day might change because I’m so darn excited about blah, blah, blah. I rearrange everything and it drives you crazy.

Jack Butala: It drives my crazy.

Jill DeWit: I know.

Jack Butala: But, you know my stuff probably drives you crazy too.

Jill DeWit: Not at all.

Jack Butala: I just have to, when it comes to business, it’s just got to be all structured out. When it comes to social stuff, I don’t care at all. There’s been a few times where you and I just got an airplane and decided where we were going to go standing there in the airport.

Jill DeWit: Based on what flight we could get on.

Jack Butala: I love that stuff.

Jill DeWit: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Jack Butala: That’s a blast.

Jill DeWit: That is fun.

Jack Butala: In business, that can be, that will sink the ship.

Jill DeWit: That’s true.

Jack Butala: Everything’s got to be organized.

Jill DeWit: You’re right.
