On today’s episode of the Wealthy Wellthy Podcast, I’m joined by Hans Knol. Hans has mastered the art of Airbnb and he owns a thriving Airbnb business without actually owning any real estate. He is helping real estate investors, agents, brokers, and entrepreneurs achieve a stable recurring income by providing teaching and coaching with his BNB Brokering Masterclasses.

As an Airbnb super host myself, I learned a ton from this conversation, Hans and I discuss the mindset of a successful host and how to structure an Airbnb business as an actual business. He shares the secrets on how to set up properties intelligently to break through the noise and competition. We talk about how to market properties to keep a full calendar with the technologies and tools that most don't know about that can make all the difference for a healthy real estate investment income stream.

This information is very relevant right now in light of what's going on in the marketplace. As a host, my very nice Airbnb income vanished overnight as my reservations and bookings for the next three months canceled. So I'm taking this time to upgrade my properties, improving my systems, and implementing what Hans recommends to be well-positioned and highly competitive for when people start booking again. For anyone with an Airbnb property, listening to these tips is important and it may be what carries you over the other side. If you don't have an Airbnb yet, now might be the time to put this strategy in place.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy Podcast, I’m joined by Michael Fishman. Michael has spent the last 20 years as a leading advisor on marketing, positioning and sustained business growth to consumer health information and product businesses. He supported Rodale Inc. in growing the Prevention and Men's Health publishing brands, taking their book business from ground level to $300M per year, and consulted for brands such as Hint Water, Athletic Greens, Vital Choice, and Jigsaw Health along with admired personalities Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Daniel Amen and a long list of others. Michael leads the annual Consumer Health Summit, the private invitational gathering for founders, which he created in 1994. In his varied talks, he shares how marketing language, customer care, and work culture combine to take companies and personal brands from merely good to the beloved best at what they do.

In this conversation, Michael and I discuss growing your business by being purposeful. He shares that the personal brands which see the greatest growth and following are the ones that back their mission with purpose and authenticity. We talk about consciousness and the role it plays on scaling and customer satisfaction. And how so many fail to realize that authenticity and realness produce results much greater than the “latest” marketing ideas. Michael shares that the most common roadblock for a founder scaling up is getting in the way of their own growth and not “letting go” of having a say so in every decision. He makes a clear distinction between being your brand and being a part of your brand, what he calls “humanizing your brand.” At a time when so many personal brands are focused on being a seven-figure company, Michael brings it back to ground level stating that focusing on impact and results for clients is the true ticket to a successful brand. If you want to learn more about how to grow and scale with purpose and true impact, you’ll want to check out this episode.

On today’s episode, I talk with Shawn Wells, MPH, LDN, RD, CISSN, FISSN. Shawn is an expert in the fields of performance nutrition, longevity, fitness and supplementation. He holds a master’s degree in nutritional biochemistry, is a Registered Dietitian, and spent over a decade as a Chief Clinical Dietitian in hospitals and nursing facilities. In the supplement industry, Shawn has held the titles of Director of Research and Development, Chief Scientific Officer, and has been dubbed “The World’s Greatest Formulator”, a Biohacktivitst, and a Keto Authority. Shawn is now the CEO of Zone Halo Research, a consulting group for supplement formulations, sourcing, manufacturing, marketing, and regulatory/compliance work.

Shawn is a renowned leader in the realms of health and peak performance yet in this conversation, we take a deep look at being present and the missing truths about wellness far beneath all of the bio-hacks, diets, and fads. Despite being wildly successful, Shawn shares that every achievement has only led to another chase in search of the next level of success. We discuss the achievement mindset and the idea that getting “there” will create happiness is wrong and only leads to a continuous chase without a finish line. Rather than chasing the next big milestone Shawn says true fulfillment lies within being more present in the world and indulging in self-love. Although he's a scientist, we go deep into the world of energy and health, the forces that feed the mitochondrial health of ourselves beyond just the physical. Shawn shares his take on "the grind" and how so many focus on work with their head down they miss the opportunity to appreciate life and the real connection happening around them. If you’re interested in how to become more present in your life and even a few bio-hacks, you’ll want to check out this episode.

On this episode, I chat with John Lanza. John is a well-known expert on youth financial literacy, and the co-founder of Money Mammals, a company on a mission to help parents raise money-smart kids. He is also the author of The Art of Allowance, a book that teaches parents how to set their kids up for financial success at an early age. John has spent over a decade talking to parent groups and credit unions about the importance of raising money-smart kids. He teaches the value of starting money-smart conversations early to empower youth and families to be wise about their finances.

In this conversation, John shares the dos and don'ts behind an allowance that works and sticks. He talks about the biggest mistakes parents make when they teach their kids about money and the best age to start teaching your kids financial literacy that will last them the rest of their lives. We discuss his techniques to help children distinguish between needs and wants to help raise non-spoiled financially autonomous children. John gives great advice to parents with teens who compare themselves with peers, to better understand the value of larger purchases. If you have kids in your life you'd like to start teaching the art and science of money, you'll wish to listen in.

John’s Three Jar Method

When it comes to starting your children’s financial journey, John has a three jar method as a starter financial framework: 

  • The Save jar - teaching children to pay themselves first

 

  • The Share jar - to understand charitable giving
  • The Spend Smart Jar - giving children spending power to buy small items

 

John’s Three Fundamental Principals

All parent's frameworks are not exact, but there are three core principals that should be a part of every plan:

  1. Distinguishing between needs and wants 
  2. Setting and saving for goals 
  3. Being intentional about choices and making money-smart decisions

Using the S.M.A.R.T Goals Method 

When teaching children about the value of purchases, using this acronym can help children understand how to set a goal for saving and successfully reach it while getting a feel for planning to reach their goal.

Specific - setting a specific goal to reach

Measurable - being able to measure progress to reach the goal

Attainable - understanding what’s attainable

Relevant - Is the purchase relative to their wants or needs

Time-based - understanding the time it takes to reach the goal

Laura started her entrepreneurial journey at a young age starting her business at just 19 years old and eventually becoming a nationally recognized marketing company.

Laura put together a plan and exit strategy from her company then retired at the age of just 37.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, I talk with Dr. Shawn Tassone. Dr. Tassone is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and by the American Board of Integrative Medicine. He holds a medical degree, in addition to a PhD in mind-body medicine. He is highly regarded as a patient advocate. His work includes studies and publications on spirituality and medical care, whole foods to heal the human body, and integrative medicine to heal where Western medicine falls short, not to mention he's a leader in the field of hormones for optimal health and longevity.

During our conversation, Shawn shares a personal story of losing his mother to ovarian cancer and despite his vast knowledge of women’s health, he was left feeling helpless not being able to help her. This led him to begin researching integrative medicine and spirituality, which ultimately resulted in him acquiring his PhD in mind-body medicine. Dr. Tassone walks a balance between allopathic and alternative medicine understanding there is a place for traditional medicine as well as holistic healing depending on the patient’s condition and preferences. Shawn is an expert when it comes to women’s hormones, he shares tips and warning signs we all should be aware of and what to do when you just don’t feel right. He is a big proponent for normal hormone levels being specific to each individual, even if your levels are in the “normal” range they may not be normal to your body. We discuss how hormones play a crucial role in how we feel, think, and behave. He discloses that for some even if they're off just a bit, they can negatively impact sleep, weight, mood, and success. Just a few lifestyle tweaks can make a radical difference to not only how we can feel better in our own bodies, but also our relationships and performance. In other words, if you want to feel more love, make more money or just feel better and have more energy with good vibes you'll wish to listen in.

While most—especially listeners here—would agree health is TRUE wealth... there’s also an undeniable connection between your health and financial wealth.

One example of this: stress has already been linked to the six leading causes of death—and a recent study by Northwestern Mutual found that money was by far the leading source of stress for Americans.

It’s also true that when your energy is low—especially when you don’t know why—your income and stress levels suffer. This can create a negative cycle that is very hard to break free from. It’s also why I’m so excited about today’s interview...

Because in this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy Podcast, my guest may just have the answers you have been searching for. His name is Warren Phillips M.S.—he’s a serial entrepreneur and wellness innovator who had to overcome a life-threatening condition caused by extreme toxicity. By cracking the code on what he calls “true cellular detox” Warren transformed his own life (including his financial well-being) and has helped tens of thousands of others do the same.

Warren started his career not as a business owner, but as a credentialed geologist studying the impact of synthetic chemicals and environmental toxins, which empowered him with a unique understanding of toxicity effects on the human condition. In today's episode, Warren shares why detoxification is more important than nutrition for your health, wealth and longevity.

I've learned a ton from him personally and I'm thrilled to have him as a guest, especially since extreme toxicity is what nearly took my life a few years back. If you have lower energy and are living with more stress than you would like, this is a must-listen, and I'll be participating in The 90-Day True Cellular Detox™ Challenge. So if you wish to join me start by listening to this episode and check out the link below for more info.

I promise after you listen in, you'll want to take the challenge.

Eric is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), Accredited Estate Planner (AEP®), Certified Private Wealth Advisor (CPWA®) and the CEO of BFG Financial Advisors, an independent firm assisting clients with wealth creation, preservation, and distribution. He is also the host of the “Don’t Retire… Graduate!” podcast, a show dedicated to teaching listeners how to advance into retirement rather than retreating into it.

In this conversation, Eric and I cover wealth and financial planning on many fronts. We talked about how to prevent yourself from outliving your money, what steps should be taken at each phase of life to lead to financial independence.  We share similar views on income and wealth, one does not equal the other. Eric shares that debt is the number one impediment on financial independence and how wealth is not as reliant on math as it is on financial literacy. Are you looking to retire (graduate) early? Eric and I discuss the F.I.R.E. methodology, which stands for Financial Independence Retire Early, and that achieving financial independence doesn’t require being “good with numbers.” It’s never too early (or late) to start planning your financial future, so if you’re ready to start building your freedom plan, you’ll want to check out this episode.

On this episode of The Wealthy Wellthy Podcast, I interview Denise Wiesner. Denise is certified by ABORM, the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, she is the founder of Natural Healing & Acupuncture in West Los Angeles, California, a certified sex coach, Licensed Acupuncturist, and herbalist. Denise has been in practice since 1994 with an emphasis on women’s issues and pain control. She treats women’s conditions in various stages of life – from menstrual disorders, infertility, pregnancy to menopause. She is also the author of Conceiving With Love: A whole body approach to creating intimacy, reigniting passion, and increasing fertility 

 

In this conversation, Denise and I explore topics ranging from sex and intimacy to the chemistry and physiology of arousal. We talk about communication and the role it plays in achieving a more pleasurable sex life, interestingly Denise shares that shame or fear is the most common reason people avoid speaking with their partner about sex. Despite this age of sexual liberation Denise regularly has clients who suffer from shame after comparing themselves to porn or media. Denise expresses how important passion is and sometimes it's just the little things we forget to do, kissing your partner or forgetting to have long embraces. Something as simple as looking at them and making eye contact can aid in bringing down the barrier in communication and intimacy. We talk about women struggling with conception and the many factors that contribute to the issue including stress, diet, and environment. In our “busy lives” we sometimes forget to just slow down, Denise tells me that taking some time to meditate or just “be” can really help lower stress, improve vital energy and help create a better environment for conception. For women approaching menopause, Denise has a list of items that when introduced into a diet can help negate some of the effects menopause has on sex. We even talk about some secrets behind the big O. If you want to get more intimate and connected with your partner be sure to listen to this episode.

In this episode, we talk about money mindset and the many roadblocks we are faced with when it comes to financial confidence, Polly believes that money is the gateway to personal and spiritual growth, and without understanding underlying fears it can be hard to see what’s standing in the way of our success. We talked in-depth about the coexistence of spirituality and money, one really does serve the other. Polly shares that many, if not all money roadblocks, start with personal experiences, fears, beliefs, self-worth, and what society has led us to think. We dig into the idea of self-sabotage, Polly says procrastination or feeling resistance is often caused by internal fears manifesting, and she suggests writing down the fear you’re experiencing and ask yourself why you feel this way to get the root cause of this belief. Polly and I are so aligned on money beliefs and overcoming fear surrounding finances, do you struggle with financial fear or self-worth? You’ll definitely want to listen to this episode.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, we talk relationships with Bernardo (Bern) Mendez. From age 17 until Bern was about 23, he participated as a volunteer staff member in many self-help seminars around the world, which gave him an invaluable insight into how he could help others create meaningful and lasting changes in their lives. Bern has a serious passion to help others learn and live by the rules of relationships. He started posting videos to his YouTube channel, Yourgreatlifetv, after being inspired to share his message on relationships. Fast forward 9 years, he now reaches nearly eighty thousand men and women every month on his channel.

Bern talks about the importance of clear and direct communication when pursuing and sustaining a relationship. So much heartache and frustration can be eliminated if both people are clear about what they are looking for in a partner, what they anticipate the relationship to look like, and their future intentions. I get a little vulnerable and share some of my personal experiences with relationships. Bern gives me valuable insight that it doesn’t have to be an “either/or”, but it can be a “both/and” if you know what you’re looking for in a romantic relationship. 

A big part of the law of attraction is what Bern calls “radiance.” He defines radiance as the magnetism that results from self-confidence, self-awareness, and self-discovery paired with the openness to be pursued and approached. Bern teaches that while it might not seem like it based on your previous relationship experiences, you are worth the effort and there are people out there who are on the same page as you when it comes to your wants, needs, and expectations. It might take longer to get down to the root of the other person’s character and inner longings, but finding the right person is worth the time investment, and if they are the “forever” person, you are not losing any time by talking with them extensively to make sure you are on the same page. If you’re searching for the one, you’ll definitely want to listen in on this episode.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, I spoke with Jonathan Levi, a lifelong entrepreneur and innovator who is committed to helping people all over the world understand and live what it truly means to be a learner. Jonathan and I became fast friends during this interview, we are on the same wavelength throughout the conversation.

Jonathan grew up in Silicon Valley but realized as an adolescent and young adult that he did not like the person he had to be to succeed there. During and after college, he tried to expose himself to other cultures and traditions until he fell in love with Tel Aviv and decided to move there, stepping out on faith with no solid plan for his future. He began working on creating online courses as a side hustle and over the past few years, this has grown to be his full-time job and more. The Superhuman Academy has taught 250,000 students worldwide and has accrued 3.5 million podcast downloads.

Since he began college, Jonathan has invested in real estate for passive income and he is in the process of entering the commercial real estate realm as well. This type of investing experience emphasizes the differences between income and wealth and the importance of diversifying your income streams enough to be able to build both simultaneously. Jonathan is committed to helping people understand what it truly means to learn, to make them excited to learn, and to introduce the importance of memory in the process of learning. Many people have self-limiting beliefs that they “have a lousy memory” or “can’t remember names”, but the truth is that everyone has the ability to remember much more than they think they can. One way that Jonathan encourages this learning is by relying on the power of social capital and accountability in the learning process. His latest book, “The Only Skill That Matters” covers these topics in much more detail in an engaging way, and I encourage everyone to consider reading it.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, I interview my good friends Mira and Jayson Calton, a couple whose work in the field of nutrition inspires me. When Mira was 30 years old, her body started shutting down. After a few tests, she found out that she had advanced osteoporosis, which was shocking considering her age and her relatively healthy lifestyle. In her search for answers and for alternative treatments to the extreme medications prescribed to her, she met Dr. Jayson Calton. Jayson was interested in Mira’s case and the two began to take a deeper look at nutrition, specifically macronutrients and micronutrients.

They realized that Mira’s body simply was not absorbing the micronutrients that were so essential to healthy bones, but they weren’t sure why. Before long, they got married and began to travel around the world to determine how people living in rural or primitive settings don’t seem to struggle with issues like osteoporosis and diabetes. This research has taken them to 145 countries and all 7 continents and has left them with some key insights.

Many people believe that whatever diet they are following contains everything they need for a healthy life, but in their very nature, diets are restrictive. By removing anything from your diet, you are also removing the macronutrients and micronutrients contained in those foods, and you must be intentional about adding them back in somehow. Mira and Jayson now understand that no diet is perfect and they have created the term “nutrivore” to inform people that they should primarily aim to eat macronutrients and micronutrients rather than sticking to a specific diet.

In addition to nutritious eating, a healthy lifestyle and supplements that follow the ABCS (Absorption, Beneficial quantity and forms, Competition, and Synergies) are the crucial elements of the journey towards health. A great place to start is by getting a spectra cell test, an omega check, and a hormone check to get a baseline for where you are now, and the results will help guide you to the specific metrics you need to focus on daily. Over the years, Jayson and Mira have tested dozens of supplements based on their ABCS only to find that most on the market do not meet the basic qualifications for sufficiency. As a result, they have created their own line of supplements that are easily absorbable and very effective.  Talking to Mira and Jayson was so enlightening to me and my own health journey and I hope it will be for you as well.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, Nichole Stohler, “The Richer Geek”. Nichole became interested in real estate and real estate investing after reading Robert Kiyosaki’s book entitled “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, and she and her husband started their journey in the industry in 1999. Their first attempt failed, but through that experience and over the next several years, they learned a lot from their mistakes to prepare them for future endeavors. 

In 2011, they really began their concentrated effort on real estate investing, and the rest – as they say – is history. In her W2 job in the tech industry, Nichole notices a lot of people relying on their 401(k) plans as their main or sole source of “retirement” savings, but most people don’t realize that real estate investments have a much higher rate of return and provide much more flexibility and personal choice along the way. By simply matching your company’s 401(k) amount and putting the rest of what you would have contributed to “max out” that retirement account each year into real estate investments, you are diversifying your portfolio for the future.

Additionally, real estate allows you to generate multiple income streams and reap the tax benefits that come along with owning multiple properties. Nichole recommends that people really evaluate their goals and capacity before jumping into a real estate investment. Crucial considerations are location, how much capital you have to work with, how much time you are able to commit to real estate, and whether you are planning to use a property manager or manage the property yourself. Create a worst-case scenario set of your numbers to determine if you could still make money in the worst of times and reach out to your network or real estate investors in your area for their insights into the market.

Nichole is involved with a group in the Scottsdale area that is focused on women who want to get into real estate investing, some of which want to be a part of the beautification process involved in flipping a house and some of which have decided to stay at home with their children and they want to have a project on the side. She and I agree that this mindset of building both income and wealth is a great one to have and we applaud women and men alike who are choosing to take control of their finances and become more well-rounded.

My guest on this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast is Dr. Shiroko Sokitch, founder of Heart to Heart Medical Center in Santa Rosa, California. Dr. Sokitch’s story is very unique in that a traumatic experience at a young age instantly convinced her that she wanted to be a doctor in order to help and heal people. She went the traditional medical route, even saving a patient’s life during ER surgical residency, and at age 27 she had an epiphany about the difference between saving a life and living a life. 

A friend of hers gave her the book “The Web That Has No Weaver”, which opened her eyes to the potential of Chinese medicine in making sense of strange things. She went to acupuncture school while working in the ER and dreamed of one day opening a medical center in California that would blend these two worlds. Dr. Sokitch came to realize that Western medicine focuses on fixing the issues and symptoms that people have while Eastern medicine relies more heavily on healing the root causes of those issues and perhaps other issues that have never been known. The practices of Eastern medicine transcend that which can be experienced through the five senses to understand the beliefs, energy, and emotions under the surface.

I felt that she was speaking directly to me and my healing journey and appreciated her educated insights into the dynamics at play in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual realms. I resonated so strongly with her during our discussion and have seen first-hand the impacts that love, connectivity, and positive emotions can have on healing and wellness. Dr. Sokitch is committed to being well-informed about the external stimuli that could be impacting her patients’ health as well as encouraging her patients to listen to their bodies. She believes that no situation is beyond hope as long as you believe that healing is possible.

I was introduced to Josh Whiton by a mutual friend not to long ago and my view of the world has been expanded ever since that day. Josh has a way of actualizing his lofty goals of elevating the world by integrating his passions in the areas of business, technology, social justice, and environmentalism.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, Josh and I discuss his deep-seated desires for autonomy and freedom paired with his proclivity towards wanting the make the world a better place by following his curiosity and serving his higher purpose. Josh started his entrepreneurial journey shortly after graduating from college, and for the past decade, he has found strategic ways to solve problems and serve his community. He has always been an independent thinker, elevated to a higher place of existence and understanding by spiritual experiences that enhance his perspective of the world at large. He believes that the future of humanity exists at the intersection of business, technology, social justice, and environmentalism and that when approached the right way, this intersection accomplishes altruism and hedonism simultaneously.

Josh’s personal and professional journeys have been intertwined since his childhood when he began the practice of journaling. His philosophical leanings allow him to recognize the feedback loops that have remained unclosed for many people since their childhood, leaving a lot of lingering unmet needs for which they are seeking healing through coping mechanisms. When this healing occurs the natural way, it leads to self-acceptance, growth, and unconditional love for self and the world. One of the overflows of Josh’s own journey to unconditional love and growth is Make Soil, whose mission is to orchestrate makers and contributors across the U.S. to convert compost into living soil.

My guests on this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, CrisMarie Campbell and Susan Clark, are experts on conflict and communication in relationships. The pair met more than 20 years ago and they quickly hit it off, first as business associates working in the corporate world, helping companies enhance teamwork by understanding conflict in that setting. As they became a couple, they found that they were better able to understand and communicate with their clients about the conflict in couple’s relationships as well.

CrisMarie and Susan share the different dynamics that are involved and the far-reaching impacts of embracing conflict in relationships. From the perspective of increased intimacy and fulfillment, their discussion was eye-opening when it comes to trusting the other person enough to be open and vulnerable with them and trust that they will reciprocate. They talked about healthy and unhealthy conflict and how it is important to define the lines that should not be crossed based on each person’s preferences and past experiences. We discuss the benefit of talking about these boundaries early in a relationship, and how having these tough conversations sooner, relationships are more primed to thrive through conflict. 

One of the most interesting concepts that CrisMarie and Susan talked about, is focusing on yourself and your needs before trying to contribute to the relationship. They share that your relationship will be stronger when you are stronger individually first and willing to talk about your needs and desires with each other in an effort to make yourselves a stronger unit.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, I talked with Robert Kandell, host of the “Tuff Love podcast” and author of “unHIDDEN: A Book For Men and Those Confused By Them”. In the late 1990s, Robert went through a series of personal transformations that led him to make some significant changes in his life. He started a new company in 2005, but after about 9 years he realized that he was not in alignment with the direction of the organization, so he started his consulting business in 2014. Since then, he has been helping men and women alike understand the dynamics between them and the ways in which the mindsets ingrained in them since birth are no longer sufficient or productive.

His book is intended to serve as a translational guide between the genders, ultimately helping men and women understand each other, their needs, their goals, and their communication styles, especially in the new social landscape that has emerged since the “Me Too” movement of 2017. Robert believes that women are more empowered than ever before to be ambitious and aspirational, from school age all the way into career advancement, and men are struggling to engage with women in this shifted dynamic. Robert speaks to the ways that female empowerment and the integration of technology into the dating world affect relationships in general and outlines specific things to be aware of in maintaining a healthy relationship with your partner, filled with truth, transparency, and trust.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, I talked with David Keller of Sierra Alpha Research, a firm specializing in behavioral finance. David comes from a finance background where he studied the statistics behind people’s purchasing and money decisions, and he has found that his sweet spot is helping his clients unpack their behavioral baggage to see how psychology affects their behaviors. 

One of his main pieces of advice is to write down your investment plan and determine the rules that will govern your investment decisions. By sticking to the specific benchmarks and timeframes you have set out for yourself, you remove any element of endowment, confirmation, or narrative biases from your process, making your investment decisions more level-headed and less impulsive. David advises new investors to evaluate how much time they have to commit to working on their investments and not put expectations on themselves that are more than they are capable of. A good rule of thumb is to buy good companies at a good time, and you can find out about these opportunities by being informed about the market and self-aware.

As a pilot in training, David has found a lot of parallels between flying and investing. Some of the lessons that are the same for both endeavors are the importance of having and following a checklist and having a back-up or emergency plan when something does not go as planned. Additionally, it is important for people to have a mentor who helps them learn how to invest, just as it is important to have a flying instructor. David busts the myth that investing equals action. Sometimes, he says, the best investment decision is to take no action.
