Are YOU Ready to Live Larger than Life? Hello, and Welcome to the Home of The Readily Random Podcast. Let me take a minute or two and introduce myself as well as this AWESOME new show! My name is Larry Roberts and I’ve been in the podcast space now for several years as both a content creator as well as a consultant. I have coached clients throughout each phase of new show launches within a number of iTunes categories. Additionally, I am a professionally trained voice over artist which, ironically enough lead me to Podcasting. I wanted to continue giving back to the exciting industry that I love so much and I’ve been itching for a new show, so The Readily Random Podcast was born! Now, this isn’t a new concept for me considering I had a blog back in the MySpace days with the same name. But this time, instead of writing my thoughts, I’ll be inviting guests to come on and share THEIR stories. What’s that? I hear you, that sounds great and all, but what does that have to do with being Readily Random? It all comes together when we meet right here, on iTunes or your preferred listening app every Monday morning. Each week I will release a brand new 30-45 minute episode featuring a “RANDOM”, selection of interesting and insightful interviews with Motivators, Entrepreneurs, Survivors, Athletes, Podcasters, Bloggers and you never can tell who else may join us! The goal is to "READILY" remind each listener through stories of success, recovery, and inspiration that you too can live LARGER THAN LIFE! Thank you for taking a few minutes to stop by and I look forward to talking to you again every Monday morning. Meanwhile, take a minute and subscribe to the show on iTunes and even give us a rating or review after you've heard an episode or two!

Mr. Reyes is an entrepreneur that has vast amount of experience in a number of arenas, from providing his service in Vietnam, to being a Dallas Police Officer, to a HUB coordinator at UNT and even having the chance to ask First Lady Hillary Clinton a very unique question.

We are going to tap directly into that knowledge and show you how you can start your very own business. We are going to explore the entire process, starting with choosing the right name... don’t laugh, it may not be as easy as it sounds, and Mr. Reyes will tell you why.

We’ll also cover business plans, certifications, how to hire the right people, managing employees, the procurement process, selling your products or services and even exist strategies.

A large part of The American Dream is to own our own business and with that, Mr. Reyes is going to tell us how to make that dream come true.

Adam Boyer is an actor and writer and somewhat of a model.  Ok, he says the model part wasn't all that successful.  But, he's been a high level athlete, playing soccer at the International level and can be seen in a number of character roles dating back to 1998.

Adam's latest role is in the new Netflix series, Ozark.  Here you'll find him playing a character that seems to be the complete opposite of the guy I had the pleasure of talking to.

David Ghantt (@DavidGhantt) is a man that still holds the record for the second largest bank heist on American Soil. As a vault supervisor for Loomis Fargo, David had access to the vaults and all the cash within.  And, with the help of several others David made off with $17.3 million dollars, 11 million of which was in 20’s. It was quite literally “a ton” of cash. The heist was recently seen as a comedy starring  Zach Galifianakis as David.  The film also featured Kristen Wig, Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis.

After being captured by the FBI roughly 9 months later, he served 7.5 years in Federal Prison and continues to pay restitution to this day. David estimates it will take him around 700 years to pay everything back that he owes.

Today, David operates heavy machinery for a living, or as he calls it, playing with Tonka toys for grown ups. He enjoys his photography and David is always ready to go and catch a big one in one of the many water resources he has to choose from in Florida.

Dr. Marvin Karlins, a Princeton educated PhD., full tenured professor at the University of South Florida and avid poker player, joins us fresh from his run at the 2017 World Series of Poker tournament in Las Vegas.  We talk about everything from a brief overview of Dr. Karlins 20 year background in the aviation industry, to the library of books he has written and of course, his results at the WSOP.

All of this in the fastest 40 minute conversation I think I've ever had.  We also manage to find a nugget of true wisdom that lead me to the title of this episode.

Dr. Karlins primary social media account is on Twitter, where he goes by @theduckman22

The Pit was started in 1985 in Woodland Hills Ca. by John Hackleman. John started The Pit because he wanted people to learn a no nonsense martial art and conditioning program. Some of the world's best fighters have trained at The Pit. John never lets the lack of money come between you and Kempo. All he asks is that you give Kempo and The Pit the respect, and loyalty it gives you. Confidence, loyalty, and humility are what he expects from all Pit Monsters.

John now operates The Pit in Arroyo Grande, CA. and Henderson, NV. John, along with other instructors, teach beginners to advanced Martial artists. He stresses mental and physical conditioning, power, and discipline. His classes are upbeat and fun, yet very tough. He combines his 25 years of Karate/Kickboxing experience to teach a blend of simple, yet effective fighting and training techniques.
