I am speaking to you from beautiful Sacramento, California, from my office, which is a shed in my backyard. Do you know what nowadays? I think there are a lot of people working from sheds in their backyard. But that's a whole nother topic. Now.

With you look at your about you page, it says ESP tapping and a million other things, which we'll come on to but we should probably start with a simple question. Because if you are at a party and you say to somebody, you know, I'm, I'm an expert on tapping, they probably say, Great, I really want to know what my wife says on the phone calls could you kind of listen in for me, you know, they've watched too much homeland or something. But tapping out or EFT is another name for my limited knowledge of this I was thinking about when I first became aware of it. And I think it was my favorite football team or soccer as you call it as arsenal. I remember seeing the teams lining up ready to walk out through the tunnel onto the field. And this is big, German, defendable, perimeter second, and it was just tapping furiously on his chest. And I'm thinking, What's wrong with him? He looks really nervous. It's a big game, you know, he doesn't look like he's really composed. And I looked at the comments on social media, and people say, Oh, it's tapping.

Welcome to the knowledge industry podcast with your host, Mark Egan.

mark egan  00:50

Okay, so Rob, really great to speak to you. I know you're in Thailand and in my mind whenever I speak to people who are like working out of Thailand I vision the MENA with this beach hut, you know, the the sea lapping against their toes and their laptop on there. But I'm guessing it's not like that. So we're about stealing, what kind of place do you live in?

Rob Cubbon  01:06

I live in Chiang Mai, which is a very unfortunately landlocked, it's it's it's kind of 500 kilometers from the nearest bit of coastline, I have to say, I did go down to the Copenhagen coastal movie, I've just got back from an island. So if you if you'd interviewed me, like two months ago, I would have shown you the sea lapping against the bungalow. But at the moment, I'm in a city, which has 200 to 400,000 people in it, depending on where you draw the boundary. And it's a very nice place. It's, if you get outside, it's very rural. And there's a great entrepreneurial international community here. And the Thai people are also great, and entrepreneurial, as well. So all in all, it's a good place to base myself at this at this time there.

mark egan  01:56

So we'll come to later on, like, why you've ended up there and what you're doing and all that kind of thing. But a lot of people I speak to who have created online courses or a business using their expertise, this story tends to begin with, I was in some kind of corporate job. And then I got fed up a bit. And I thought, right, I'm going and I'm now going to kind...
