Transcript

DJ IZ: What’s up you all? Welcome to Connected. I am your host, DJ IZ. And I am here hanging with my beautiful co-host, Ms. Cloie. Say, what’s up Cloie.

Cloie: Hey guys. How are you? Happy Monday.

DJ IZ: Happy Monday. Now, for those of you that are just tuning in, this is something we do every Monday at 11 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. What we come to just kind of hook up with you all, share some dialog and also, share some grind ups, some opportunities, some jobs that might lend itself to film, recording, engineering, broadcasting. Am I leaving anything out Cloie?

Cloie: The kitchen sink.

DJ IZ: Ah, the kitchen sink. Yeah. So, in a nutshell, pretty much everything, and that’s pretty much what we do here at Connected is, really just not only mentor and educate, but bring you opportunities at real time, because that’s what we…

Cloie: [inaudible 00:01:21].

DJ IZ: What I can say? Cloie, tell them how they can follow us on day-to-day on our social media, where they could find us?

Cloie: Oh, for sure. Guys, it’s real simple, like real, real simple. You can get a pen, you could not get a pen, word is Connected. Boom.

DJ IZ: And that’s Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. I mean it’s that simple.

Cloie: It’s really not hard.

DJ IZ: The cool thing is, you know, me and Cloie have a lot going on, so it’s a great way for you guys to kind of just track our day-to-day movement, see what it’s like on our end in real life, real time and kind of just get a feel for what it is we’ve got going on.

Cloie: [inaudible 00:01:58].

DJ IZ: How was your week Cloie?

Cloie: My week was fantastic. It was definitely a week of hustling between rehearsal and some projects that I’m working on, but you do what you do.

DJ IZ: Absolutely, absolutely. I mean that’s what the grind is, right?

Cloie: Hello.

DJ IZ: Here we are on Monday, top of the week and it’s really about just getting out there and hitting the pavement and getting things going. And that’s kind of…that’s kind of what we like to promote here, Cloie. It’s like, get out there and go get it, man. It isn’t going to come to you.

Cloie: Hello. Can I get it, hello. Hello, opportunity, is that you?

DJ IZ: You know, how dope would it be, man, if you can just wake up out of bed and just have 20 different options pop-up in your text or e-mail just say, just full of opportunities, and all you have to do is literally get dressed, get in your car and show up and it was that easy. Wouldn’t that be great?

Cloie: I mean, well, to be fair, that’s kind of what we are doing here on a Monday, it’s really [SP]…all you need to do is log-in and have a good time, right? Right?

DJ IZ: Yeah. Absolutely.

Cloie: Yeah. I would like opportunity to be my fairy godmother. I want that.

DJ IZ: So, without any further ado, we’re going to jump up into these grind ups, and before we get there, Cloie, tell what they need to have on deck so they can jot down all these notes, all of this crucial info.

Cloie: So, guys, what you are going to want to do is, you are going to want to grab writing utensil, and maybe some paper, so you could take notes or not, but you can apply for all the jobs right here and if you have questions, drop those down too, pop them over to us, so we can answer it, talk to you, we like you.

DJ IZ: And that’s…I am glad you mentioned that, because I want to get folks hit our e-mail address, where they can get anything they want to get to us, whether it’s music, songs, video, questions, anything. So, you want to be able to hit us at rrfedu.com, Connected, and that’s where you can send us whatever it is you want to send us, you want to get at us, if you’ve got questions, hit us there and we’ll get at you. Again, that’s [email protected] All right.

Another thing too, we might be talking to some folks that really don’t use pens anymore, pencils and paper. We might be talking to this generation of iPad, note texter.

Cloie: You want me to age myself out? I just aged myself like…I am so sorry. Sorry, I’m so retro. I apologize.

DJ IZ: So, without any further ado, we’re going to jump up into the first grind up for the day. This is a grind up that is in the field of film, and this is script assistant. Leading entertainment and media company seeks a script assistant that will assemble rehearsal scripts for a pilot show, and this is in New York, New York. All right.

So, here we are. Let’s hit off these details for this particular grind up. Details are, it’s in New York, New York. Leading entertainment and media company seeking a script assistant that will assemble rehearsal scripts for a pilot show, required NDA if hired. Go ahead and break down to them what a NDA is, girl.

Cloie: NDA, is a non-disclosure agreement.

DJ IZ: And what does that mean?

Cloie: You can’t talk about it.

DJ IZ: You got to keep it on the web?

Cloie: So, if somebody asks you what about that…uh-huh, uh-hmn, shh? You go [inaudible 00:05:29]

DJ IZ: No, you know it’s cool. So, Cloie, this is the first time we’ve actually had one of this request in for the details, an NDA, so, it’s actually…this is actually a good educational detail for those of you that don’t know what an NDA is, because it pretty is basically stated and you can absolutely not talk about what it is you are doing, who you are affiliated, this is strictly, hush, hush, strictly for you.

Cloie: I have something to add to that. That also means no social media. I am going to repeat that again, that also means no social media. No social media.

DJ IZ: That might be a little hard for some of these folks, because I know when you get into a good position and something exciting just happened you want to post about it, you want to talk about it, you want to selfie it up.

Cloie: You know what, post it to your heartbook, not to your Facebook.

DJ IZ: Yeah. Exactly. So, there you go there, guys. That’s what it is. Next detail is, responsibilities will also include copy and distribute show related paperwork to proper departments, track script changes with writers and production departments and provide final broadcast scripts. Candidate must have at least one year of experience working in film, television production. You must have knowledge of Microsoft Outlook, Excel, Word and Final Draft.

So, I mean that’s pretty self-explanatory for all of our viewers, because you got to have knowledge of Microsoft Outlook, Excel, Word and Final Draft. I am sure if you have any bit of experience with this you already have those, and you are already working on those different platforms.

Cloie: I want to…I am sorry. Go ahead. I am bit excited. Go ahead IZ.

DJ IZ: No. No. Go ahead. Say what you want girl, go ahead.

Cloie: Well, the responsibility without the paperwork and to the proper department and tracking script changes, that…I just want to note that that also sounds really, really easy. You are like, oh, I am just shuffling papers and collating or whatever it’s called, but it’s that’s not it at all. If you think about how often a script changes and usually, they give you…give it to you in colors, like, here is the yellow color, here is blue, here is pink. It is your job to track every single one of those colors, every single change for every single character and get it to the appropriate party. So, you have to be the most organized.

DJ IZ: Yes. And you know, we stress organization structure all throughout the show. I mean, and we are on episode 25 today, so, we kind of [inaudible 00:07:52], we’ve been implementing that since day one. And that’s a great thing. And like I said, this is actually asking for one year of experience and the great thing for the Recording Connection is I know we have tons of folks in this particular category that definitely have real life, real time experience. So this is a great opportunity for you guys to also partake it to all our students at the Recording Connection. So, that one is that.

Cloie: Film Connection, too.

DJ IZ: Yes, Film Connection, absolutely. Film Connection Broadcast. Thank you. I mean sometimes I forget, Cloie. Thank you. That’s what I have you for. That’s…

Cloie: Well in this program, that is what I do. That’s what I do.

DJ IZ: That’s my better partner, man. So, with that being said, we’re going to move up into grind number two. Grind up number two is in the field of recording, my favorite, audio editors, studio mix engineer, locally owned creative marketing company seeks audio engineer to mix audio ads for more than 15,000 clients. And this is in Shreveport, LA.

Cloie, I am going to let you kick-off the details to this one girl.

Cloie: Sure. Okay. So for this one, so audio engineer will be working with proprietary software, receiving daily inquiries from clients. Responsibilities will include, edit voice talent audios, mix music with vocals, work with music programmers, schedule client groups, maintain data integrity, organize company’s proprietary music library and chose the right music for each client’s inquiry. That is a lot of personalization. That also sounds a lot like a self-starter that’s not afraid to interject ideas, like…you can’t sit back and just like, I don’t know, decisive, that’s the word I am looking for, a decisive personality and person in general.

Candidate must have at least one year of working experience in audio, and one year of experience working in an office environment. Okay. So, you’ve got that duality, yes. Like, oh, the creative side and then the admin side coming together, how fun is that? And candidate will be working on campus using the company’s studio. And also…we should also, also say, Shreveport…that’s Louisiana, shout out to Louisiana, like our thoughts are with you all.

DJ IZ: Yeah. Definitely. Definitely.

Cloie: Oh, man.

DJ IZ: They are going through it right now.

Cloie: They are really going through it, really, really going through it. So, yeah…so, that is…that one for sure.

DJ IZ: Yes. Another thing too, I was kind of just looking at these kind of what their ask and expectations are for this particular grind up. It’s a lot of duties for an audio editor or a mix engineer, and we can peel these back one by one, edit voice talent audio, mix music with vocals, work with music programmers, schedule client groups, maintain…it’s a lot going on here. So, I would definitely recommend anybody that has at least maybe a year to two year of experience because a lot of these technicalities, I mean, they come with you working at this particular craft for a long time. When you’re dealing with company’s proprietary music library, I mean you got to even know what that means, chose the right music for each client, and you’ll be working with more than 15,000 clients. That’s a serious workload and I’m sure that…I mean as you can see that’s a serious working expectation as well.

And it’s a creative marketing company, so it’s like…you’re spewing these things out left and right.

Cloie: You know what else is…that sounds interesting about this job is like, it sounds like it would be great for somebody…yes, your working experience in the audio world, your working experience in the office environment and also, it sounds like it could be a great job for somebody that’s like, “I don’t really know what I want to do, but I have the skill set,” because you’re doing so many things, right, you have the opportunity to try on so many different hats.

DJ IZ: Right, right, yeah. And just from the mixing aspect as an engineer, I mean it’s a very detailed job. When you are mixing, you are obviously taking a music that’s unrefined and unfinished, and refining it and finishing it. So, you are factoring in vocals, you have a particular artist or material you are working on, you’re dealing with a lot on the creative side. And then you jump over to the technical side, which is two different roads, then you’re getting into maintaining the data, organizing the company’s music library. So, you almost got to have a split personality in this particular grind up because it’s going to require both sides.

And for anybody that knows mixing and what all that entails, I mean it’s a lot, it’s timely and it requires precision. So it looks like both of these…yeah, both of these asks are really requiring precision. So shout out to my dog, holding the house a lot [SP] down in the back for you, if you guys are wondering like, what is that, is that Big Foot making noise and that’s…shout out to my dog, he holds it down.

So, that is the gist of that particular grind up. Moving onto grind up number three, grind up number three is in the field of film, video editor, 25 plus year company with the core business of product, placement and brand integration, seeks video editor, Burbank, California. Let’s kick off the details for this.

Cloie: So…

DJ IZ: What’s that Cloie?

Cloie: I was saying, what we got?

DJ IZ: All right. what we got is, editor will be responsible for importing, titling and editing of video clips from a variety of media sources. Editor will maintain the electronic creative asset library for client commercials and add art work materials to productions as needed. Here we go again, required NDA for all projects we work with. There’s our NDA showing up. Initially part time, two to three days per week for a total 20 plus hours, flexible weekday schedule. That is extremely flexible. I mean, man, shoot, if I had…Cloie, if I had a few days, just to [inaudible 00:14:10].

Cloie: I will be fishing with you, this is what I will be doing, it’s fishing.

DJ IZ: [inaudible 00:14:15] especially that I’d be eavesdropping. Again, we have a required NDA, that [inaudible 00:14:27] being where you at.

Cloie: It seems like there is a theme here.

DJ IZ: So, for those of you who have been covered on the NDA side, that is a policy that requires you to not say anything about eavesdrop [SP].

Cloie: Nothing, and not out of your mouth and not on the social media.

DJ IZ: Right, right. Also, guys, before we go in [inaudible 00:14:52] Q&A. So, we can get to a lot of those questions that you guys [inaudible 00:15:03]. Go ahead, Cloie you want to…

Cloie: We want to talk to you. We want to talk to you so much. We like you.

DJ IZ: I mean we love you.

Cloie: Really.

DJ IZ: That’s what we are here for. Okay.

Cloie: Where do we leave off on this?

DJ IZ: For those other details, as far as importing, titling, and editing of video clips, for those of you who have experience in this particular field you already know [inaudible 00:15:32] of editing and all that stuff, [inaudible 00:15:34] some of these companies look for, especially media companies. The cool thing is, you are also maintaining the electronic-grade asset library. So, that’s kind of crucial, it’s kind of one of those things, put your hands on it, you get [inaudible 00:15:58]. We always talk about getting in here and really being able to do the job. We always like to tell, we want to over-perform, never want to…

Cloie: Underperform.

DJ IZ: No.

Cloie: No. And there is so many…I feel like there are so many testaments to what can happen to you when you over-perform, that we’ll get to see in the next few weeks, so we’re supper excited about that.

DJ IZ: Right.

Cloie: But it’s…nobody is ever like, I almost tried.

DJ IZ: Yeah. Almost all [inaudible 00:16:35] is more important. That’s what I would say.

Cloie: Yeah, I almost did my best, but then I just did it.

DJ IZ: And then a good thing about this particular grind up, as far as just the workload, you are doing two to three days per week, for a total of 20-plus hours, which is a really good schedule, and for those of you that do other creative things on the other [SP], it allows you to get to those parts of the day that is [inaudible 00:17:02] as far being creative, because this is only two to three days per week. I mean if me and Cloie had that type of schedule, man, I will be getting all kinds of stuff done.

Cloie: Tell you, tell you, what I wouldn’t be doing. I am sorry. What I would be doing, vacation.

DJ IZ: Yeah. We were not supposed to going to there.

Cloie: I am sorry, sorry, sorry. Never vacation.

DJ IZ: Never, never. Vacation is for wimps. Here we go, moving onto grind up number, the number of facilities [SP]of recording, it is one of the my favorites, looking for audio engineer, audio post production studio seeks freelance and full-time contractors for busy production facility, emphasis on live recording experience, in Redmond, WA. All right.

Cloie: We should also note that in Washington, Redmond, that’s also like Microsoft, no? So, I mean…

DJ IZ: That’s right. That’s right. Yeah. And that’s a great environment to be. So, keep that in mind folks. You’ve got some other opportunities borne out of just being in Washington. Here are some of the details on this one, audio engineer [inaudible 00:18:20] recording, sound editing, taking audio and video, file-based audio laybacks and trouble shooting. He or she will work effectively with clients, producers, and directors. Candidate must be familiar with the following; Pro Tools, Virtual Instruments, DSP process, Gain Structure, Signal Flow, and Data Management.

Candidate must live locally, no exceptions. So, this is something you definitely won’t be flying into, it definitely won’t be a three-hour drive for you, okay, and you definitely better know what you are doing, because you’ll be doing all these other things, producers and directors, you got to be familiar with Pro Tools, Virtual Instruments.

So, again, this is another job that I say, know your gear, know what you are working with, because you can get into some of these and it…you get in there and you see a piece of equipment that looks foreign and you are lost. And you try to get to your YouTube to type it in, to get a tutorial, it’s too late, you got to be able to get in there and fly.

You know what’s funny Cloie, I realize a lot [inaudible 00:19:22] myself doing it. When I don’t know how to do something, I go to YouTube. All right. It’s crazy, right, but folks have been doing this for a while now and I am late to the party, because I am like, I don’t like reading manuals, so I am like, how to make this work? And then there is some dude like, well, this is what you do, first step. All right.

Cloie: Shot and edited. It’s usually just lovely with the lighting and what have you.

DJ IZ: Right.

Cloie: Have you ever been in a situation like, when you first started out, where you got into a studio or something and you saw this equipment that you didn’t…I don’t want to say pre-YouTube, because I don’t want to date you, but I might suggest before YouTube.

DJ IZ: Yes. What did I do?

Cloie: Yeah.

DJ IZ: I just winged it. Yeah, trial and error, trial and error. Now, we don’t recommend that, especially with these particular grind ups, we definitely don’t recommend that. Definitely, you want to do your homework before you get there, because you want to be able to what, over-perform. I want that you over-perform. I want folks…I want that to be embedded right here, when I get in there, I got to over-perform. I got to over, over-perform.

Cloie: Can people Tweet that to us? I feel like…Can you all Tweet #overperform to us.

DJ IZ: That’s a good one. Yeah.

Cloie: Tweet us.

DJ IZ: Just get them in.

Cloie: Paula, if you hear us, Tweet at #overperform @izconnected on Tweeter.

DJ IZ: Yes. Yes.

Cloie: Do it. Thank you.

DJ IZ: All right, Cloie, we are going to move off into our last grind up of the day. I am going to let you go ahead and have this one here.

Cloie: Sure. Sure. Thank you. So now, this one is coming to you out of Austin, Texas. This is for an editor/videographer. Independent marketing firm seeks an editor/videographer that can cut, shoot and animate clips into a cohesive segment. The candidate will be working closely with the video creative and production departments as they translate concepts, scripts and storyboards into interesting film segments for clients.

A storyboard is a thing. That is a hard thing to do, let me tell you sir. Yes. Could you talk about the art of the art itself and also being able to capture the hearts and minds through this like essentially cartoon. Illustration, excuse me. That’s all I have to say about that.

Okay. Back to the details, candidate must be familiar with animation and after-effects and Final Cut Pro 7. Candidate must be familiar with video codes and formats. Candidate will be learning different types of virtual reality formats.

DJ IZ: Okay.

Cloie: We are huge.

DJ IZ: Okay. So, here we are [inaudible 00:22:37] grind up that…really two different sides, right? You have your creative side and then you have your technical side. So, I just always want to make sure that we stress the importance of knowing both sides because to get in there be great at only one thing, you really…you do yourself a disservice, if you can’t perform in the other areas.

Again, and this another grind up that’s really important for you guys to know your gear, know the software you’re working on, knowing what’s out there, what these companies are using. A lot of them tend to use the same thing, but you never know you might get that one company that has a completely different program, platform you’ve never worked on and next thing you know you’re slowing down the progress of work. So that’s definitely important on this side, but it’s cool because you’ll also be working, again creative role with your production team, departments and what have you. So, this is another grind up that looks very exciting, very compositely being very intense. What were you going to say, Cloie?

Cloie: I was just going to say it’s also in the world that is not new, but there has been such a focus on it lately, and that’s the world of virtual reality and also like all the opportunities that are coming up in coding, like, guys, get in there, learn it. I don’t know a thing about it. It’s never too late to learn.

DJ IZ: Right.

Cloie: But like that world is exploding right now.

DJ IZ: Absolutely, absolutely. And this is again another grind up that can be great for our Recording Connection students. They definitely have experience in these kind of departments. So, that is it. That is our fifth grind up of the day.

Me and Cloie are going to kick off into this Q&A and see what kind of questions we’ve got out there, see what you guys are asking. Again, don’t forget to e-mail us at [email protected], that’s where you can send us whatever it is you want to send us, questions, if you want to tell us we’re whack, if you want to tell us we’re dope, hey man, I want to hear it.

Cloie: I do, too.

DJ IZ: Yeah. So, all right. Cloie, we’ve got first question of the day, this is, do you have any advice for someone looking to become an actor?

Cloie: Baby, grow thick skin. Grow thick skin and be ego free. I think that being an actor one of the things that I have learned, it’s all about making choices, big, bold choices, so what I have learned, what I am continuing to learn as a student of life, a creature in this world, is to fail gloriously. So, it’s like making a big choice, right or wrong, not judging it, and committing to that choice whatever it may be. And there is really nothing that can happen. So what, I don’t get the part. Okay, what have I learned here? Or I get the part and I am doing something, what have I learned here, all the opportunity and experience and the thicker your skin is, right, keep your heart big, keep your thin…your skin thick, so that you can separate what is yours to carry from what this industry is, because they are not the same.

DJ IZ: Right.

Cloie: If that makes any sense.

DJ IZ: It makes a lot of sense. Great answer Cloie. We’ve got another man who just joined us, he has been following us throughout all our episodes, a shout out to my man, Katz [SP]. He is saying, you know the over, performing in DC this week shooting a national commercial and he says, thanks for the inspiration. So, shout out to Katz, man, thank you for consistently tuning in here man, [inaudible 00:26:21] for you bro, do your thing man, all right.

Next question, what’s the coolest gig you’ve ever worked on.

Cloie: Cool. Me or you?

DJ IZ: Oh, both of us.

Cloie: Cool.

DJ IZ: That’s a hard one for me [inaudible 00:26:38]?

Cloie: I mean, I just…what about you? Because it’s hard to be like, oh, that was my favorite because like, I don’t know, some of the most fun things I did, I shot a commercial for holiday stuff and got to shoot it in Chicago, and that was supper fun.

DJ IZ: Nice.

Cloie: What about you?

DJ IZ: I think one of the experiences that really stand out to me is, it was in the year 2000 and this is a year when I was playing drums for artists name Macy Gray, and she had a cameo in the first Spiderman and she wanted her band to play with her in this cameo in Spiderman. It was the scene in Spiderman where they were like at this event, and there was a lot going on, and it was kind of almost like a carnival or something and we were…so we were playing in this movie and I was like “wow, man we’re going to be in the first Spiderman.” And then the gig had happened and like two months later they sent us these, like, Spiderman booklets for the movie and they had a picture of us and the whole band, and I was like, I’m always in the front, like I grew up watching Spiderman. You know what I mean? So, yeah, so I was like wow. So that was a moment for me that really stood out, just from being a kid who watched Spiderman. So…

Cloie: Do you have the book?

DJ IZ: I still have the book, yeah.

Cloie: Making a note that I want to see it.

DJ IZ: Yeah. Let me take that note. Next question, did either of you have a mentor that helped launch your career? I definitely had…I had a couple of folks that really, really stood out my journey as far as music and that definitely helped me and my brother out. I call them the great investors, you know, the great investors of my journey, people who saw something in me and allow themselves to give me…give themselves to me of their time, energy, and I always say, one of the main reasons is why we find ourselves here [inaudible 00:28:56] we do Cloie every Monday because at the end of the day, somebody did the exact same thing for us that really helped propel us into a career or path that we really love. And I think that’s part of the move for us, is really to give back and really just sharing information, right, because that’s really…if you think about it Cloie, that’s really what we are doing, man. We are taking the information that somebody shared with us, that allowed us to gain experience and Knowledge and now, we are just kind of returning the favor, right. So…

Cloie: I agree.

DJ IZ: That’s what I meant.

Cloie: A hundred percent. I agree. I just…it warms my heart to think about like just all how it all lines up.

DJ IZ: Right. Right definitely.

Cloie: Yeah. [inaudible 00:29:45] I’ve got misty eyed. Those are real misty eyes. Shut up.

DJ IZ: Hold on. Let me wipe out. [inaudible 00:29:55]. Here we go. Next question, I do a lot…and this is from Chris, I do a lot of different things in the world of audio, engineer, producer, vocalist, sound design and score composition. I have formal training in all of these. I find it difficult to market myself in all those ways without coming across as Jack of all trades, master of none. Any advice?

Man, that’s a great question, Chris. How you laid it out is a great question. You know man, honestly, I get what you’re saying, I mean because you can do so much, it’s…you do fall into that phrase, “Jack of all trades, master of none.” Man, I would just take a couple of those things, man, and really allow your resume to speak that for you. And that’s with really showcasing your experience. What separates you from being a Jack of trades and master of none, is really your experience. Now, if you have experience to back each one of those categories up, man, that experience does the talking for you. But I would say just in any setting, man, keep it simple, keep it basic, and let…whether it’s a real or whether it’s your resume, let the resume do the talking for you.

The great thing is, you can do all these things. One of the things my dad told me coming up in music was, try to be great at everything, because at the end of the day, you don’t want to have to call on nobody. Okay. So, Chris responded. He says, “I do have the experience, three-page resume at this point.” Well, man, hey, you got it then bro. If you got a three-page resume with all the experience listed, man, you are good. You can stand on that solid, and let it speak for yourself man. What were you saying, Cloie?

Cloie: I have another thought too, because in performance, right, like you all do very different but similar things. Like I think what if also you could have a resume that highlights to this part, a resume that highlights to that part, a resume that highlights to that part, so that when certain jobs come up and they are looking for a vocalist, great, so here is that resume. And you just lead with whatever their need is and then use what is the [inaudible 00:32:25] while highlighting that. And the rest of it, just because it’s not on that particular resume doesn’t mean you can’t do it anymore. It just means like…you just need what’s going to get you in the door, right.

DJ IZ: Right.

Cloie: They don’t always need a dancer. Do I do that? Oh, yeah. So, I just keep it in my back pocket until I need it and then I can show you what I can do, but all you got to do is get in the door.

DJ IZ: Yeah. So, shout out to you Chris. I mean I think what you have been able to put together and compile through experience in all the many categories that you can actually navigate and work in, good job to you. I take my hat off to you, because that’s what we are looking for, person who has got their stuff together and who can execute on all levels that they speak of. And that’s really great.

So, Cloie that looks like that’s our Q&A for the day. Again, tell them where they can find us on our social media.

Cloie: Guys, social media, it’s this a crazy, crazy thing. You can find us across it @izconnected, I-Z connected. IZ, where can they find you personally to reach out and touch you?

DJ IZ: iz_avila on Instagram, same on Facebook. Also, you can find both of us here at [email protected] You might have some questions for Cloie, you might want to ask about that beautiful smile. You know how she looks just so positive on a Monday morning. You might want to hit me about some other stuff, so please do so there.

We’ve got some folks who just tuned in, awesome…yeah, okay. Desiree [SP], what’s up, Desiree?

Cloie: Thanks. Definitely going to try it. Try it and report back.

DJ IZ: Yeah, definitely. Keep us posted, man. We’ve would like to hear about the forward movement, so definitely keep us posted. Shout out to our team, Brian, Howey, Mike, guys who make this possible every Monday for us to come to you live and direct. And that’s it from me, man. Anything you want to leave them with Cloie?

Cloie: Calling back to our over-perform thing, Tweet us guys. Tweet us just like Katz…#overperform @izconnected on Tweeter and also shout out to Katz, who’s filming his commercial. Can you say what it’s for, or did you sign an NDA?

DJ IZ: Good one. Good one. I like that. I like that. All right, folks, we will catch you next Monday. Remember, stay in tune with us, track our day-to-day movement on social media, and we look forward to seeing you next Monday. I’m IZ and I’m out.
