Network Round Table is back for the Season of Values!

This is our simple trailer HOA. We will be live asking the “Four Questions” Who are you? Why? Why? Why? Join us as we dig deep into who our guests are and why they believe the things they believe.

Core values are as vital as goals to our success. If we are a#solopreneur   #SmallBusinessOwner   #entrepreneur  or part of one of the  #fortune500companies  we need core values to help us chart our course. Season three of NWRT will be all about the values we hold to and how we can uncover them to get a clearer picture of where we are going.

So  #SuperTroopers    keep the comments coming and help us create a show that will educate you about each of the 23 values we have selected to cover this season.

Get the conversation started on the event page, and of course, post any questions you’d like to have answered during the show!

Network Round Table, your #SmallBizHappyHour , is back for the Season of Movement!
From now until the end of 2014, we’ll be talking with our guests about the different aspects of movement and how movement (in all its forms) impacts your business.
We’ll inspire and motivate you at the beginning of the show, so that your energy is up and your stress is down. Then, it’s time to get educated – by our guest and by YOU, our #HappyTribe . We believe that sharing experiences is one of the most powerful ways to learn, so we want to hear from you about your experience with this week’s subject: 
Does discipline have a place in your small business? Is it possible to be too disciplined?

Get the conversation started on the event page, and of course, post any questions you’d like to have answered during the show!
And don’t forget the Lightning Round! It’s up to YOU to tell us how this week’s show moved you. Did you have an “aha” moment, were you able to identify with something that was said? We want to hear all about it with the hashtag #LightningRound  after the show.
We’re thrilled to have +Phyllis Khare   as this week’s #plusonesuperhero!

Pawn Boys a Hangout On Air Event Gomboc Produced

HOA Fun Live from Lighting Pawn

Dennis Duce: Welcome to Pawn Boys.

If you would like to have a Hangout On AIr produced for your company call Dennis N. DUce 801-879-0243 or fill out the form below.

Ryan Miner: Welcome! You know, I was watching last weeks, I thought it was a little rough, I sound like a goofball anyway.

Dennis Duce: That’s alright! Fun man!

Ryan Miner: These are gonna get better and better and better, I promise you. We’re gonna do things you wanna hear. Hopefully, you’re gonna make some suggestions, and we can put some stuff on the air that you wanna hear.

Dennis Duce: Yeah!

Ryan Miner: Sportin’ the sunglasses again today?

Dennis Duce: These are the ones I talked about last week.

Ryan Miner: You love those.

Dennis Duce: These are so freaking cool! Don’t come down and buy these, because I wanna buy them. I thought they were blue, but now that they’re out of the case they’re black, that’s weird. Black and cream, cream on the inside, black on the outside with just a hint of the cream showing up.

Ryan Miner: How about these? I’m not usually a pink person, but do they look good on me?

Dennis Duce: I think they’re wild man!

Ryan Miner: Oakley’s! Oakley’s, Raybands.

Dennis Duce: Yup. Real deal.

Ryan Miner: Oh yeah. We don’t do knock-off’s here.

Dennis Duce: How do you tell whether they’re knock-off’s or not?

Ryan Miner: You know, any really good name-brand item put out quality stuff. WHen you go to the cheap Chinese stuff, you can either, the embossing on them is done cheaply, they’re just very cheap. That’s basically how you do it. They’re not gonna put out a bunch of money on something that they’re selling for pennies on the dollar compared to what they are new. So, cheap cheap stuff. We don’t have any of that stuff, we don’t like taking imitation stuff here, real deal.

Dennis Duce: So what are we looking at? Neither of them have price tags on them.

Ryan Miner: Rayband, if you were to go into the mall today, would be in the neighborhood of 150$.

Dennis Duce: You couldn’t get these at the mall, these are vintage.

Ryan Miner: Maybe, you know they do a lot of retro stuff, but I dunno.

Dennis Duce: 150$ for sure?

Ryan Miner: Yeah, new. But not here. You’d pay less than 80$ for something like that.

Dennis Duce: Sick.

Ryan Miner: Same thing on these. Oakley’s, I’ve got Oakley’s Rayband, Rough Lorane stuff, goochi stuff, so, just about any kind of name brand sunglasses you can think of.

Dennis Duce: We’re sitting in Chenele chairs.

Ryan Miner: Chenele chairs. These chairs are actually something that we took in on pawn, and decided that, ‘Hey, when are you gonna see another pair like this’, so we ended up keeping them. Anything is for sale!

Dennis Duce: Nothing but the best for the pawn butts on Pawn Boys.

Ryan Miner: Exactly, Chenele chairs. Designer from A to Z.

Dennis Duce: You got it, good deal. Alright, so, we may not have a guest this week.

Ryan Miner: I tried to get one of my really good friends and he’s also in the pawn business, owns a pawn shop locally here, He was kind of a maybe, his store opens at 9, I told him we started at 9:30, hopefully he shows up, he was kind of tentative. Maybe we can pick his brain, he’s been in the pawn business longer than myself, he’s kinda the one that got me started in the pawn business, helped me get started, he would be very interesting to talk to, so hopefully he shows up.

Dennis Duce: Hopefully

Ryan Miner: Yeah, we’ll see. I told him 9:30, only need 10-15 minutes of his time, so hopefully he comes. Behind us here is an example of one of the things that have come through the doors. this is an 1897 bicycle made by a national bike company. These are wooden wheels, and if you look close, there is something missing on this bike. What do you think it is?

Dennis Duce: Well, I already heard Kirk talking about it last week so I know, but it’s got no chain.

Ryan Miner: It’s got no chain, it is driven by a shaft. It’s something I guess they toyed with around the turn of the century.

Dennis Duce: It’s got suspension.

Ryan Miner: For all those mountain bikers that thought that rear suspension came out in the 90’s, and that was the first time-

Dennis DUce: They were right! The 1890’s! They were off by 100 years

Ryan Miner: Anyways, it’s completely original, down to it’s tires, you can see that the tires have horsehair covered by rubber, so that’s how they did them way back then. But the bike is completely original down to the lock they have. Now, I don’t have a key for that lock, but I thought that is was kind of interesting that it was hanging there. To the grips, to the seat, anyway, this is just kind of an example of what we see sometimes come through the doors. Everyday is an experience. This bike, for now, is not for sale, just because I love bikes myself, and I’m gonna keep it and probably hang it up on the wall. But if you wanna come down and see a piece of AMericana, American History, this is definitely worth while, to come down and see it. I love it, I love it. If you’re a bike enthusiast, if you’re not and you just wanna check out something neat, amongst other things I have, come and check it out. It’s one of the things we thought we’d highlight today, so.

Dennis Duce: Yeah, I’m loving this bike, I really am. This thing is so cool.

Ryan Miner: It’s neat, it’s all original. It’s never been painted over. it’s not been abused, it looks like it sat in someone’s garage for 100 years or more.

Dennis Duce: Yeah.

Ryan Miner: Neat neat neat neat stuff. Anyways, my phone keeps ringing, hopefully the answering machine will get it.

Dennis Duce: Same guy, someone named David. David! David! Brundy David! Stop calling!

Ryan Miner: Please, please! We’ll get it in just a bit!

Dennis Duce: We’ll call you back, or he will.

Ryan Miner: You know, one of the things that I was thinking about over the weekend, that most people, when they ask me what I do, one of the questions they have for me is ‘Do you take mostly stolen items?’ just because that is one of the perceptions that they have as a pawn shop. Either they’d never come into a pawn shop before, and they just think that all the things we have are stolen, which is completely untrue, it does happen. Modern pawn shops, most laws and regulations are such that it doesn’t happen as much anymore. When you come in to pawn, you have to have a valid state ID or driver’s license to be able to do that. We scrutinize what we take in, we don’t discriminate at all, if something seems maybe stolen, it’s certainly something that we wouldn’t be interested in. We don’t take stolen items, although they do show up sometimes, you can’t screen everything out. When we take something in we have to hold it for 15 days, if it’s a sale. If it’s a pawn, we have to hold it for 30 days. That stuff gets uploaded, by law, to a statewide database. So let’s say you have something stolen from your house. You have serial numbers for that item, you file a police report, and if in fact it was stolen, they can look it up. Hopefully the serial numbers are put in right. If you know maybe the name of someone who may have stolen it they can look it up as well. We do get everybody’s fingerprints here, we’re not to the point of taking blood yet, but maybe that’s coming soon… just kidding.

Dennis Duce: Come on down, get your blood taken! At the pawn shop.

Ryan Miner: The truth is-


Dennis Duce: DAVID!

Ryan Miner: Is that really? Man, it is, he is relentless!

Dennis Duce: We got a customer coming in here too.

Ryan Miner: We probably do. Oh, it’s the mailman. Thanks buddy, you can just set it right there. Thank you man. Anyway, we do have stuff shown up every once in awhile that end up being stolen. I would probably say 3 or 4 items a year get put on police hold for them to do further investigation for it. Other than that, not really, out of the thousands of item’s we take.

Dennis Duce: Time out for a second, we’ve got a customer coming in here.

Customer: I want to keep up, but I would like to get some cash for it, if I can.

Ryan Miner: These kind of off-brand tablets are really difficult for me to take. You buy them from the store and they devalue almost half when you walk through the door. Everybody is making these now. You can go into the door and buy these for 75 bucks new or used, they’re just tough for me to take. Just stuff I probably wouldn’t be interested in right now. Do you have anything else?

Customer: No, I don’t

Ryan Miner: Sorry man. I appreciate you bringing it in.

Customer: Alright, bye.

Dennis Duce; You probably need to create a notice on the door. We’re not supposed to be open currently, but the door’s  unlocked.

Ryan Miner: Yeah, we need to lock the door. Anyway, I really try to help people when they come in , even if I’m really not interested in what they have. I asked him if they have anything else, a lot of times people do. My desire is to try to help everybody. Of course I’m in business to make a living, but honestly I really try to help the people that come through the door, I really do. That is the honest truth.

Dennis Duce: In preparation for production of this show, I’ve probably spent  *AUDIO CUTS OUT* at the respect. Some of the people that came in, I wouldn’t have given them the time of day, and you treated them the same whether they were well dressed, like that woman who bought the nintendo from you, or whether they were, you know, well, questionable. You treated them all the same, and it was really cool to watch.

Ryan Miner: I deal with all sorts of types of people, anywhere from a guy that drives up in a 100,000$ 700 series BMW-

Dennis Duce: That he wants to pawn?

Ryan Miner: Hopefully, someday, or a high end watch, to somebody that doesn’t look  like they have two nickels to rub together. But I really really try. I know how I’d like to be treated, I’ve been in dealing with the public, customer service, ran-in jobs, almost since the first job I had. I really understand customer service here. We treat everybody the same, everybody with the utmost respect, you can count on being treated well here at Lightning Pawn. A lot of times people go into pawn shops and they get looked down on, which I don’t think is right. That’s not something you’re gonna see here at Lightning Pawn for sure.

Dennis Duce: I haven’t seen it, watching you, you’ve been the most respectful guy, and I’m impressed.

Ryan Miner: I try, thank you, I appreciate, Anyway, what I was saying about stolen items, they do come in, but it doesn’t happen very often. You can count on anything that you buy here has been through what we call some sort of screening process, it’s been uploaded to the database, so you can be rest assure that anything that you buy here is legitimate. That’s pretty much the way it is with any pawn shop. We’re regulated to the point where it just doesn’t happen as much as it used to.

Dennis Duce: Let me ask you this, have you ever had anything that didn’t get picked up through that process, got out on the floor, got old out, and you had to deal with some repercussions. You’ve been in the business 12 years, has that ever happened? So something that was stolen didn’t get caught, and someone’s purchased it, and they now have it out there, because for some people out there looking to buy, that’s a concern.

Ryan Miner: They want to make sure that the item they purchased was legitimate. I’ve been in the pawn business for 12 years, and if I thought real hard, once or twice maybe, I can’t think of any time that’s come up since I’ve owned my own pawn shop for the past 5 years. When I worked for someone else, once, twice maybe.

Dennis Duce: Three times a lady?

Ryan Miner: There you go. I knew that was coming. It just doesn’t happen very often, so you can rest assure that what you’re buying is legitimate. I can say pretty much across the board, anywhere you go, that’s probably gonna be the case. The pawn business is not what it used to be as far as that goes. It’s not shady, we’re above board, it’s legitimate

Dennis Duce: It’s legit.

Ryan Miner: Absolutely. That’s one thing I was thinking about over the weekend, people ask me about that all the time. We’re good, clean, and fun down here at Lightning. For sure.

Dennis Duce: Really fun.

Ryan Miner: Absolutely.

Dennis Duce: Speaking of fun, I’m a skateboarder, you have, this week, brought in a number of really cool long boards.

Ryan Miner: Those long boards, if you are purchasing it new from a sporting goods store, or whatever it may be, these are all name brand stuff.

Dennis Duce: Look how long this one is.

Ryan Miner: That’s a sector 9, the other one was a glub. Sector 9 is arguably the most popular brand of longboard

Dennis Duce: Yes, definitely as far as the wheels are concerned, they are IT.

Ryan Miner: You would be upwards of 150$ for something like that new, down here at Lightning Pawn, 75, 80, on something that’s in brand new condition, not more than 100 dollars.  Right Now I’ve got probably four long boards. Winter time is a great time to come in a buy these things because I have a lot more of them, people aren’t riding them as much. It’s just like buying a lawn mower in the winter or a snow blower in the summer. If you want good prices and great selections, you come in the opposite season.

Dennis Duce: There you go.

Ryan Miner: So, we’ve got 4 of them right now.

Dennis Duce: So, if any of you, like me, went and saw the Secret Life of Walter Mitty this weekend-

Ryan Miner: Did you see that?

Dennis Duce: I did. Great movie.

Ryan Miner: Was it good?

Dennis Duce: It was really good, really really good movie. But, if it gave you an urge to go longboarding down some road in Iceland-

Ryan Miner: Do you actually ride those things?

Dennis Duce: I actually ride a retro short deck. Next week I’ll bring it in, it’s actually in my car right now. I keep it in my car all the time. I’m a park carver, so I can’t even do a kickflip or anything, but I have wanted to give longboarding a try, and of course, watching Walter Mitty cruise down that hill with rocks on his hands, it was pretty exciting.

Ryan Miner: Kids, always wear a helmet, please.

Dennis Duce: Yeah, he doesn’t. He didn’t have a helmet. And don’t jump into the North Atlantic Ocean out of a helicopter.

Ryan Miner: Ooo, I wanna go see that.

Dennis Duce: You gotta go see it, it’s great.

Ryan Miner: I did, a few weeks back, buy this tacure watch. On this side of town, I’m one of the few people that will look at and buy high end watches, just because I know what I’m looking at. And that comes with a very expensive education, by the way. I’ve made a lot of mistake.

Dennis Duce: How do you learn to tell the difference?

Ryan Miner: When you lose thousands of dollars, you get educated real quick, more specifically. Again, what I was telling you about the glasses, high end companies, whether they’re watch companies, sunglass companies, car companies, or whatever they may be, when you’re paying thousands of dollars for a watch or a car, everything is perfect. Down to the lettering on the logos to how they paint the numbers on the buzzle, how the black paint is put into there. A cheap knock-off, when you look closely at it, there’s going to be mistakes if you look hard enough, there’s going to to be flaws, so to speak. From Rolex’s to tags to omegas to brightly’s or whatever High end watch you can shake a stick at, I’ve seen come through here, and most of them I’ve purchased. This one came in last week. Beautiful watch, that is a Tacure Formula one black-faced watch, all stainless steel, Came in last week, and in talking to the customer that sold it to me, I was surprised to find out that he had been offered 50$ for the watch on 2 different occasions. Now this particular watch, brand new, is about 1400$. It had never been worn. This guy got it for a company gift, and he didn’t have any use for the watch, he said he would rather have the money for Christmas, to buy gifts, which makes sense. On a couple of different occasions, he was offered 50$. Now I don’t know if that was because the people didn’t know what they were looking at, or they were tyring to low-blow him, I told him right away I would igve him a lot more than that. I told him I would give him 300$, and he was okay with that. Anyways, if you have a high end watch, and you wanna know about it, if you want me to look at it and tell you if it’s real, if you wanna sell it to me, if you wanna get a loan on it, I do high end watches here. I know a lot about them, and I’ve seen a few of them , and we do deal with those down here. I’m kind of a watch snob myself, so high end to me is 1000 or above. It doesn’t really start to turn my head until about 2 or 3 thousand or above, I’m a little bit of a watch snob that way. So, bring me the nice watches, I can look at it for you if you just wanna know about it. I can let you know what it’s worth, or give you a mouth appraisel on them , that’s kind of one of my forte’s down here. Whereas a lot of people don’t.

Dennis Duce: High end watches, bring them to Lightning Pawn.

Ryan Miner: Absolutely. I do have other watches that I deal with here. Mostly trendy watches mixed in, rockwall, diesel, I like the trendy stuff too that don’t end up selling for much, but is popular.

Dennis Duce: Now, am I seeing 2 swatches there?

Ryan Miner: Those are vintage swatches.

Dennis Duce: Vintage 80’s swatches?

Ryan Miner: Vintage 80’s swatches.

Dennis Duce: What are those going for?

Ryan Miner: To a collector, I think new, since they have little rubies in the dial, those might have sold for 2 to 3 hundred dollars. To the right guy who collects those kinds of things, maybe 100, 150? They still have their boxes with them, at least one of them does. So, those are kind of especially collective ones. I don’t think anybody’s gonna come in and spend 150 dollars on a plastic, 20 to 30 year old watch. So, it would have to go the right guy, but there are guys collecting those things. THere aren’t very many of them left out there.

Dennis Duce: No, there aren’t. I broke my swatch

Ryan Miner: Did you wear a swatch back in the 80’s?

Dennis Duce: I wore a swatch in the 80’s, it was blue, and it had 2 twisted swatch guards. You know how cool I was? With two polo shirts, both collars turned up, I was like… so much.

Ryan Miner: You probably would have looked down on guys like me. I was a little nerdy, a little awkward. High school was a blur to me.

Dennis Duce: Oh, I was nerdy too because I grew up in a small town in Canada, so, guys like you would have looked down on guys like me. I was this kinda weird juxtaposition.

Ryan Miner: I never had a swatch watch man, I was never fortunate enough to have a swatch watch. I had a cheap imitation, but I didn’t have a real one, so.

Dennis Duce: And now you’re wearing an Omega.

Ryan Miner: And now I’m wearing an Omega! So, I told you all ,watch stop man I love watches!

Dennis Duce: I think it’s all because you were dissuped(?) as a kid.

Ryan Miner: Making up for lost time.


Dennis Duce: That caught me off guard, that was good. Alright, so, last week you talked about tools.

Ryan Miner: You have a interesting hammer there.

Dennis Duce: Yes, It’s very interesting.

Ryan Miner: It’s a rubber/metal mallet. That is probably more commonly used in flooring, that one right there. That is an item that you might hit a flooring machine with.

Dennis Duce: Like hardwood flooring?

Ryan Miner: Yeah, yeah.

Dennis Duce: Or maybe carpet stretcher?

Ryan Miner: Well, carpet stretchers didn’t have their own mechanism for doing anything, but you could use that for just about anything. That one is specifically used for that type of purpose. Tools are probably one of the most we take down here. I see tools come through the door all day every day.

Dennis Duce: Framing gun!

Ryan Miner: That is a pass load angle framing nailer. It’s gonna take a 16 penny nail, and I have those in just about any brand name you can think of from Hitachi to pass load to bostitch, all the name brand stuff. I don’t like to take harbor freight stuff down here. Harbor Freight is a weekend warrior cheap tool store that sells cheap stuff. I generally don’t like those, I like to take name brand stuff because I see so many tools.

Dennis Duce: Although, I bought a really good anvil from them.

Ryan Miner: They’re fine for that type of stuff.

Dennis Duce: I mean what’s gonna break on an anvil?

Ryan Miner: I buy my shop rags from them. I’m not knocking Harbor Freight, they are a great store for what they are, but they’re tools, and I’m sure they would admit it too, but their tools are not for industrial use. Anyway, I’m a little more picky in the stuff I take down here.

Dennis Duce: A tool snob.

Ryan Miner: Yeah, tool snob, sure. You can name me that. I’m a tool snob. Name brand, good condition, newer model tools. I’ve taken them, they’re great stuff, I’ve got nail guns, drills, Nikita Dowell.

Dennis Duce; Oh if you had a Paslo drill that would be cool.

Ryan Miner: They actually do make drills.

Dennis Duce: Well it would have to be numatic though, I think.

Ryan Miner: Probably , yeah, they’re probably gonna be in a numatic situation. Anyway, any kind of tool you can imagine, I do take here. Don’t go buy it new, gimme a chance first and see if I’ve got it, come down, see if we can get you set up, if I don’t have it, go to Harbor Freight, go to Lowe’s, or wherever you wanna go. See if I have it first. Give me a chance!

Dennis DUce: You’ve got this heater thing here, I’m not even gonna try to pick that up and show it off.

Ryan Miner: You know, during the cold months, those big torpedo heaters sell like hotcakes.

Dennis Duce: I wonder if it shows up in this other screen, probably not though.

Ryan Miner: Nah, I don’t think it’s showing up, nope. Shows my guns back there.

Dennis Duce:  Yeah! You’ve got a lot of guns.

Ryan Miner: Absolutely.

Dennis Duce: Pistols right down here.

Ryan Miner: ABsolutely, so, if you’re looking for a gun, give me a call., I have compound bows, as I probably stated last week, musical instruments, I’ve got all sorts of guitars and amps, we could go on and on about the stuff that I have. We could probably make a show that lasts all week, but we won’t bore you with that.

Dennis Duce: We’ll just keep highlighting you all week. So, I wanna do Pawn Tales.

Ryan Miner: Okay

Dennis Duce: So, tell us some really bizzarro story from your pawn life.

Ryan Miner: You know, I was thinking about some stories that I could tell this morning, and I’m sure if I really really dug deep- I gotta start writing these things down, they’re kinda like dreams, you know if you don’t write your dreams down then you kinda forget about them?

Dennis Duce: Just have your own Pawn Tales journal?

Ryan Miner: Then you kinda have to regurgitate them at the appropriate time. This was awhile ago, I had this lady come in. She actually pawned with us all the time, she was a frequent customer.

Dennis Duce: Does that make her a frequent pawner?

Ryan Miner: She was a frequent pawner. I could make a frequent pawn card. I don’t know what that would do, but I should make one of those.You punch, you know like a Chuck-a-rama card?

Dennis Duce: What do they get?

Ryan Miner: At the end of it? I don’t know, I’d have to come up with something.

Dennis Duce: Great new idea. Tell us what you want on your frequent pawn card!

Ryan Miner: I’ve often thought I’d make a VIP gold card. I don’t know how that would work, it justs sounds good, I tell my good customers ‘If I had a gold card, you would be the first to have one.’ But I don’t know what that would entail. But we’ll think of something. Anyway, she’d come in all the time, and I couldn’t take any of the things she had. She had just junk. As I was talking about earlier, I really try hard to accommodate people, even if they don’t have things that I’m looking for. Anyway, she was rummaging through her purse and pulling things out as fast as she could get them and putting them in front of me, and finally, she pulls something out and says ‘This is my last resort.’ And she pulls out a pencil.

Dennis Duce: Mechanical?

Ryan Miner: No, it was a #2 pencil just like you would use to fill in the bubbles at school, like on a test.

Dennis Duce: I’m old enough to know that reference.

Ryan Miner: They don’t do that anymore, I’m sure.

Dennis Duce: No, I don’t think so.

Ryan Miner: #2 Pencil. To her it wasn’t just a #2 pencil. It hadn’t been sharpened yet, so it had just the blunt end on it, right?

Dennis Duce: What condition?

Ryan Miner: Oh it was in brand new condition. Just like I like to take things, I like to take new stuff. She began to tell me a story about this pencil. ‘This pencil means a lot to me’ she tells me. I think she had gotten it from one of her kids, I guess they were all grown up and out of the house, it came from on of them at school and it was a very special pencil, and she told me there was no way I would lose this pencil. I was so taken back by this I said ‘I’ll give you 20 bucks for the pencil.’ Now don’t think that you can come down and bring a pencil and get 20 bucks f0or it because I probably won’t do that again. Here I though, now I own this #2 pencil, I paid 20 bucks for this thing, and I’m never gonna see this lady again on this thing. And to my surprise, she comes traipsing through the door 2 weeks later to redeem the pencil. I was flabberghasted, I never thought I’d see her again on this thing, because what’s a pencil like that cost? 5 cents? 10 cents? Something like that.

Dennis Duce: A stick of gum.

Ryan Miner: She redeemed this pencil!

Dennis Duce; What percentage of people actually redeem?

Ryan Miner: I would say a good average is probably gonna be 45%-50%. So the odds weren’t in my favor on that one man, I thought I’d own this pencil. Anyway, long story short, she became a really good customer. She was already a good customer at the time, but I trusted her with stuff that I normally wouldn’t trust people with bringing in. I took stuff from her, and she always came back and redeemed them. I don’t know what ever happened to her, it was when I worked in another store. I guess we kinda just lost track of each other, and I haven’t seen her since. I do have customers that I consider more reliable at coming back and getting things, and I might give them a little more for their item, or take an item that I might not take from somebody that I didn’t know. I do that, and I think probably most pawn shops do, but I don’t think I’ll take a #2 pencil again.

Dennis Duce: So I’ve got a suggestion for your frequent pawners card.

Ryan Miner: What’s that?

Dennis Duce: You have, and I can see right here from where I’m sitting, oh I dunno, about 50 of these?

Ryan Miner: No, there’s more.

Dennis Duce: So, I saw these today, there’s a story behind these, this thing is really cool.

Ryan Miner: One of the great items we have here at lightning pawn.

Dennis Duce: You put gumballs in here, and they show up in here, and then you spin this, and then they come out down there.

Ryan Miner: Oh, but it’s a picture too. It hangs up on the wall.

Dennis Duce: Yeah, so you can hang your gumball machine on the wall. Everybody needs one of these.

Ryan Miner: If you get to 10 punches, you may receive, a gumball framed hanging picture. I do have some with gumballs in them,, now, I don’t know how old they are.

Dennis Duce: While supplies last.

Ryan Miner: Yes.

Dennis Duce: Then we’ll come up with something else.

Ryan Miner: In an assortment of colors!

Dennis Duce: You do. I can see red, and blue, yellow…

Ryan Miner: I think those are the primary colors.

Dennis Duce: Yeah, I’m thinking. OH! Is that black? There’s a black one over there. They have black too. Oh! I see a green one over there.

Ryan Miner: We have lots of them.

Dennis Duce: So tell the story, how did you end up with all these patent pending made in Korea delights?

Ryan Miner: Down here, as we have said several times during the show, we really try to accommodate everybody. We did this person with no exception. We took probably 80 of these things? That maybe we shouldn’t have taken?

Dennis Duce: How many have you sold?

Ryan Miner: *HOLDS UP ZERO*

Dennis Duce: How long have you had them?

Ryan Miner: About a month. People think they’re cool! They look at them. They pick them up and are all what are these? How much are these? I’ve even told people 5 dollars a piece, and it wasn’t good enough for them to take it,. You know, if you’re doing your kids bedroom with that thing? Like a circus, fair, carnival? They are fun! There is nothing else as fun. You know, I’m almost to the point where I would probably give you one if you came down. So come on down and I’ll give you a gumball picture.

Dennis Duce: But you gotta say that you saw it on Pawn Boys.

Ryan Miner: Yeah! Tell me you saw it on Pawn Boys and I’ll give you one of these. I’ve got plenty. While supplies last, but I’ve got plenty. So, if the camera could pan down…

Dennis Duce: That’s kinda tough to do, they’re all computer cameras today. So…

Ryan Miner: By the way, the cameras that are taking these pictures are computers that come from the pawn shop, right?

Dennis Duce: Yes, that’s true! These are pawned computers.

Ryan Miner; Yes, Absolutely.

Dennis Duce: The mic this week is not pawned, last weeks mic was pawned. If we have had two of them, I would still be using them this week. But the problem was that mic had a small sound area so you couldn’t hear the other person very well.

Ryan Miner: This is nice,.

Dennis Duce: It looks like it’s doing a better job.

Ryan Miner: Yeah, I think so.

Dennis Dce; We’ll find out when we replay.

Ryan Miner: That’s about all I have. I think this show went better this week, I really do.

Dennis Duce: Yeah, though Kirk was pretty entertaining. His dry sense of humor is pretty funny.

Ryan Miner: That’s why I wanted Bill to come, he’s a funny guy. He is just as dry or drier than Kirk is. We’ll get him on this show, I promise we’ll get him on this show. I’m gonna coax him out, hopefully for next week.

Dennis Duce: Good deal. And we’ll work on getting some other guests on, some local business, maybe a local politician from midvale, you know that could be interesting.

Ryan Miner: Yeah. Would we have to be more serious?

Dennis Duce: We better not have to be more serious.

Ryan Miner: Okay alright. Not that we’re a ball of laughs right now.

Dennis Duce: No, but we had fun.

Ryan Miner: Yeah, it’s fun! I don’t know if it is for you, but we’re having fun. ANyway, I don’t have anything else.

Dennis Duce: I think that’s it for this week Thank you so much for watching Pawn Boys.

Ryan Miner: Thank you, I appreciate it. More polished every week. These shows are unscripted.

Dennis Duce: Completely.

Ryan Miner: These shows are unscripted. We just kinda come up with stuff, as you can probably tell, from nowhere.

Dennis Duce: Yeah, off the cuff. The main idea here is to give you a chance to get to know Ryan, and we figure if we script this up you’re not gonna get to know him, you’re gonna get to know some script.

Ryan Miner: No teleprompters here.

Dennis Duce: No teleprompters whatsoever, we’re just shooting from the hip and that way you get to know Ryan.

Ryan Miner: Come down and visit me. You can come down and talk to me too.

Dennis Duce: Yeah, hang out, watch people come and go. It’s actually really fun. I literally look forward to Monday mornings now.

Ryan Miner: I do too. I was a little, I didn’t know what I was gonna do last week, but you know, this morning, I was like ‘We’re gonna have a fun time.’

Dennis Duce: Yeah, so we’re gonna end this weeks broadcast and immediately step into making our promo video, new feature on google hangouts. It’s been rollin’ for about a month, but I got the update this week, so, we’re gonna make our promo video so you can see what next week’s video is about.

Ryan Miner: Thanks for coming! We’ll see you next week.

Dennis Duce: Thanks!

Ryan Miner: Love you! Bye.

00:00:02- Dennis Duce: Aright, we are live. First time ever, we are the Pawn Boys. I am Dennis DUce, and I have absolutely nothing to do with pawn but I get to be on the show because I’m the producer. But, we’ve got Ryan Miner, pawn boy extraordinaire.

00:00:16- Ryan Miner: Welcome welcome, this our first ever edition of pawn boys,. we will be running this program every monday morning, hopefully at 9 o’clock, we got a bit of a late start this morning, but welcome, we hope to go over some things, maybe some questions that you may have about the pawn industry. THat’s basically our goal, have a little bit of fun.

00:00:40- Dennis Duce: Yeah, so, we’re gonna go through a couple of things each week, ands man, my mouse doesn’t really work very well from this far away, first thing we’re gonna do every week, we’re gonna start off with- cuz you have the most amazing, I’m a sunglass guy, you have the most amazing collection of sunglasses. Every week we’re gonna wear a new pair of sunglasses, then take them off right after the intro and try to sell ‘em.

00:01:08- Ryan MIner: Oakley’s, I’ve got all sorts of designer sunglasses. They are 100% genuine too.

00:01:15- Dennis Duce: These ones are beautiful, you gotta check these out. They’re Raybans, dual-tone, absolutely loving these. The thing that’s cool about these ones is that they’ve got the copper-toned lense, which is really abnormal in raybans. I’m a copper-tone lense guy, I don’t own a lot of raybans simply because they’re usually the gray or the green. But these are more of a driver color, as some people call them. Very sick, very sick, you gotta check these out.

00:01:43- Ryan Miner: It’s not the old style too,  it’s the new style.

00:01:45- Dennis Duce: THough, you’ve got a pair from the 80’s over there, blue and white.

00:01:50- Ryan Miner: Vintage. Well, the retro stuff is in right now.

00:01:52- Dennis DUce: Man those things are sick.

00:01:53- Ryan MIner: Retro stuff is in, we’ve got a lot of that stuff as well. Come down and check it out. THe stuff that you see in a pawn shop is not what expect. We have got, literally, a little bit of everything. It’s just fun to come and look, even you don’t really plan on buying anything, just come and check some stuff out.

00:02:10- Dennis Duce: You know, I have not been a pawn person, but working with you for the past couple of weeks, I gotta say, I look forward to coming into your shop because there is always cool stuff in here.

00:02:22- Ryan Miner: Yeah, I mean, people who have never been into a pawn shop before come in here and are just astounded by what they can find,. It’s totally unexpected. It’s a lot of fun, you can come down and check it out, we’ve got jewelry, coins, guns, bicycles, motorcycles, I could go on and on about the stuff we’ve got here. That’s just a part of it.

00:02:55- Dennis Duce: Small piece. Alright, we’re gonna be doing a couple of things each week. We will have a guest whenever we can possibly pull one together, and we’ve got one this week, which relates to this highlighted piece behind us. It’s already sold, because the guest bought it.

00:03:13- Ryan Miner; This is a 1903 national cash register company, solid nickel cash register. Just an example of some of the things we see come through the door. It’s just cool stuff.

00:03:31- Dennis Duce: So, one thing that I wanna do each week, because I’m sure, since you’ve been in this business for 12 years, you have got to have just a ton of really interesting pawn stories.

00:03:41- Ryan Miner: Oh yeah, yeah, I could fill a book, I’m sure.

00:03:44- Dennis Duce: So, slowly but surely, we’re gonna full a book, one chapter, one week at a time.’

00:03:48- Ryan Miner: Absolutely.

00:03:49- Dennis Duce: So, little boys and girls,is now time for Pawn Tales.

00:03:56- Ryan Miner: Well, one of the stories I like to tell, well, when I meet people and I tell them what I do for a living, they’re instantly fascinated and I get barraged by questions. These aren’t tales, these are things that actually happened in the store, but I’ve got some stories that I kinda pull up to fascinate them. One time, a guy comes through the door, and he wanted to pawn his grave plot. THe fun thing about this industry is that things will come through the door that you’ve never seen before in your whole life.

00:04:44- Dennis Duce: Of course, the grave plot didn’t come through the door.

00:04:46- Ryan Miner: No, well, he was holding the deed.

00:04:49- Dennis Duce: But the plot stayed where it was.

00:04:51- Ryan Miner: I’ve never purchased one these things before, okay? I have no idea how much they’re worth, turns out they’re very expensive items. I’ve never had the need for one before, hopefully I won’t in the near future.

00:05:05- Dennis Duce: But you know, if it happens really quick, maybe you’ll have the very first broadcast live, hangout on air funeral.

00:05:12- Ryan Miner: Let’s hope not. He pawns this thing, and he had every intention of coming back and getting it. I kept it for him, and he didn’t come back and get it. Well ironically enough, his girlfriend calls me probably two months after that, and he had passed away, this guy had passed away.

00:05:36- Dennis Duce: They guy who had sold you the plot who didn’t think he needed it anymore?

00:05:39- Ryan Miner: Absolutely, he had passed away. It was a very very sad situation, but his girlfriend was wondering if she could acquire the grave plot again. I said sure, come on back, and we’ll take care of it. I never saw her again, and I still have this thing, so, if anybody’s interested in purchasing something like this, I’ve got it.

00:06:04- Dennis Duce: What grave area is this?

00:06:08- Ryan Miner: I believe it’s the West Valley one, I think there’s one over by Winder Dairy. It’s supposed to be a nice plot.

00:06:17- Dennis Duce: Have you ever seen it?

00:06:18- Ryan Miner: I haven’t personally, no, I haven’t been out there.

00:06:21- Dennis Duce: Well, if you’re looking for a plot for your burial, or, you know, a Christmas gift for somebody.


00:06:34- Multiple people: Nothing says Christmas like a burial plot.

00:06:40- Ryan Miner: It’s the gift that keeps on giving, I’m sure.

00:06:43- Dennis Duce: It is the most eternal gift, it never wears out.

00:06:47- Ryan Miner: We’re not making light of this, it just goes to show you that we take literally anything down here, as long as it has value.

00:06:56- Dennis Duce: That is a great tale. So, before we jump to our guest, do you have something else that you would like to highlight around the shop that might be interesting to people?

00:07:07- Ryan Miner: Well, I do have a great stock of guns, those who are in the market for guns, it’s a great place to come shop. I have a little bit of everything. I might not have exactly what you’re looking for at the time you’re looking for it, but I also do take requests, so if somebody is looking for something that they want to buy used and don’t wanna buy new, I take requests, and when I do get that item in, I’ll give them a call, and hopefully make a deal at that point. So I have guns, I have coins, jewelry, I have bikes, musical instruments, and probably what I have the most of is tools. People don’t really think of a pawn shop as a place to buy tools. They’ll go down to Lowe’s or Home Depot, but man, I have got more tools than I know how to deal with. Come in and check it out, I’ve got saws, and drills, I’m really picky with what I take in as far as tools go, so it’s not old, worn out stuff, it’s new model, name brand, excellent condition stuff. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of the stuff I’ve got in here. I don’t have anything specific, I’ve got watches, diamonds, gold, you name it, vintage guitars, all sorts of neat stuff. Small gifts, it’s not too late to come down and get something for that last minute person on your list. I’ve got entry level guitars under 100$, amps to go with those guitars, and I know a lot of people have that on their gift list. Don’t go to Walmart and buy the first reack thing, they’re junkie. Come buy a name brand guitar for less than what you could buy7 it for new at Walmart. We always kinda joke around here ‘cheaper than Walmart’ it’s kind of our motto.

00:09:19- Dennis Duce: Cheaper than Walmart.

00:09:20- Ryan Miner: Absolutely.

00:09:22- Dennis Duce: ALright. SO Ryan, we’re gonna bring on our guest. Quick question, you were telling me a story about that watch that they can’t see, is that case unlocked that while the guest is on I could grab it and we could highlight it?

00:09:34- Ryan Miner: Yeah, we could unlock it, there’s some keys over here.

00:09:37- Dennis Duce: Okay, I’ll go find those keys, and, you were talking about bikes, so we are gonna bring in one of the other Gomback’d (?) clients and the guy who introduced us, Kirk, who, you’ll be able to catch later today on Jerks Corner. Kirk is a long time friend of Ryan, and also a local business guy, and he’s holding clarinet, I have a feeling he might play.

00:10:08- Ryan Miner: He’s also wearing some sunglasses we have.

00:10:10- Dennis Duce: He has some aviators on, so, we’re gonna on this weeks guest, Kirk Sherad, form Jerks Bike Shop.

00:10:21- Ryan Miner: There was no fanfare man.

00:10:22- Kirk Sherrod: I was saying, there was no fanfare, I was expecting some kind of applause or something, I dunno, I guess this is our first show.

00:10:28- Dennis Duce: I can get applause, hold on.

00:10:31- *pitiful attempt at playing*

00:10:33- Dennis Duce: Wow, that deserves applause.

00:10:37- *applause*

00:10:39- Ryan Miner: That is a clarinet without a reed, I don’t think you’ll get very far with that one.

00:10:44- Kirk Sherrod: This is the reed right?

00:10:45- Ryan Miner: Yeah, I think it’s broken. Easily replaced.

00:10:49- Kirk Sherrod: What does something like that cost?

00:10:50- Ryan Miner: You know, that is a student model. You can pick that particular one up for less than 100$. I’ve got all sorts of different models, starting from about 75$ going up to 500$

00:11:01- Kirk Sherrod: I remember in High School we were playing these and my parents had to go rent this.

00:11:06- Ryan Miner: Were you a band geek?

00:11:07- Kirk Sherad: I was a band geek. And my parents had to rent one of these for me and I hated playing this thing, I couldn’t do it right, it was squeaking all the time, and my parents were mad at me because they had rented this thing and it costed a lot of money. They should have just come down and bought one from the pawn shop.

00:11:24- Ryan Miner: You’re throwing money down a hole that way.

00:11:26- Kirk Sherad: That’s exactly what happened. And I can’t believe I just put my mouth on that, I have no idea where this thing has been and I just but my mouth on it. If you come into a pawn shop, you probably should not- I’m probably gonna get some kind of airborne syphilis or something.


00:11:41- Ryan Miner: It builds up immunity man.

00:11:43- Kirk Sherad: It does? Well then, come on down to the pawn shop and build up your immunity by sucking on one of these liquor(?) sticks.

00:11:49- Ryan Miner: Now Kirk, you’re kinda in a unique position, you have been in the pawn industry before, worked in the pawn industry, but you’re also someone who shops in pawn shops on a regular basis. One of the things I wanna ask you, I mean you worked in the pawn industry years ago, for one of the, I would arguably say, the pioneers of pawn here in the Salt Lake Valley, how has the pawn industry changed over the years?

00:12:25- Kirk Sherad: Well, I see a lot more pawn shops, that’s for sure, then I see a lot less pawn shops. Some of the ones that used to be around when I was in the pawn business are no longer around. But I see other pawn shops, I see larger pawn shops that have come along, Catch America(?), things like that, I’ve seen them come along. You know, I’ve spent a lot of time going to different shops, buying things, it’s a great place to buy stuff, and it’s a great place to go and see what’s out there. The value for what you get for the money is so much better at a pawn shop, there’s no question about it. What I love about pawn shops like yours is that I can come in here, we can work out a deal, I can go home with something and feel good about it, I feel like a rockstar when I buy something from a pawn shop. I’m like I bought this for a quarter of the value or half the value of what it was gonna cost me at the store, and it’s in good shape. It’s the hunt out, you know, I love that part. There is one thing that I wanna say that has happened. Some of the bigger pawn shops or national chains, I don’t have nearly as much fun going to places like that. I don’t find nearly as much cool stuff there. It’s all crappy stuff, like a drill that doesn’t work, the same stuff, like a hundred different laptops that are out of date. I always see the same stuff in there, I’m not that interested in buying that stuff. It’s almost like they don’t care. I love coming into a place like this because I can look around and say this guy is passionate about what he does, he’s got cool stuff on the floor, and I can usually find something that I want.

00:14:11- Ryan MIner: For example this. (Referring to highlighted item)

00:14:12- Kirk Sherad: For example this. Look how cool this is!

00:14:16- Ryan Miner: Kirk bought this. I had this in my store, he owns a bicycle shop that has kind of an antique feel on the inside of it. It goes perfect with his theme.

00:14:28- Kirk Sherad: My theme is antique. I’m becoming an antique so I thought maybe I’ll beat that.

00:14:35- Ryan Miner: You know, just as Kirk was saying, I like to kinda pride myself on thinking I’m changing the pawn industry somewhat, kinda bringing it out of the dark ages. A lot of people of the notion that when they walk into a pawn shop, it’s this dark dungeon, fat guy sitting behind the counter smoking a cigarette.

00:15:05-Kirk Sherad: I have seen those!

00:15:08- Ryan Miner: I do have a bit of a belly, I’ve gotta admit. I don’t smoke, I don’t have a lot of chains, I have a small one I wear on my neck, but I’m actually nice. Have you ever been into a pawn shop where you didn’t feel like you’re welcome?

00:15:26- Kirk Sherad: Oh yeah, all the time. You go in and it’s almost a burden that you’re in there, like oh great, we’ve got another customer.

00:15:36- Ryan Miner: As kind of a rule, the pawn customer is not a very loyal customer. I like to think I’m changing that. One of the reason was that there’s no customer service. I care about the people that come in here. I do realize that these people are paying my bills, so to speak. And a lot of owners don’t realize that, so I like to think in some small way that I’m changing that. So, when you worked in the pawn industry, I mean, how long has it been now?

00:16:31- Kirk SHerad: 20 years exactly.

00:16:33- Ryan Miner: Okay, quite a while ago, you’re that old?

00:16:35- Kirk Sherad: Yup, antiques, antiques!

00:16:44- Ryan Miner: There weren’t that many pawn shops when you were around, and you said there are more around now.

00:16:48- Kirk Sherad: More pawnshops. What’s interesting about that is that I look at the pawn shops that were around when I was  and I see that they aren’t doing so hot. I think a lot of it is because they haven’t changed or evolved with the business style. I think a lot of them would complain that the big stores have taken over, but it’s really because they haven’t evolved. I have a fun story, *banter* Okay, so I used to work at ‘Whitzles’ Pawn, it’s still available somewhere downtown. We had a guy come in that wanted to pawn his glass eye, it was just crazy.

00:18:08- Ryan Miner: Dude, I dunno if I can beat that one.

00:18:10- Kirk Sherad: I’m not trying to beat anyone!

00:18:15- Ryan Miner: That beats my grave plot story.

00:18:19- Kirk Sherad: Wait lemme finish, you’re gonna get a kick out of this. So this guy comes in, he wants to pawn his glass eye-

00:18:26- Ryan Miner: Are they worth anything?

00:18:28- Kirk Sherad: I don’t know! Dave, at the time, it was kind of a standing joke that he gave money for a glass eye, and I think he gave 100 or 150$ for it or something. The thing we would hear is for sure I’m coming back for this, guaranteed i’m coming back, well, you’re never really sure if they’re coming back or not because

*Audio cuts out*

Kirk Sherad: So, sure enough, this guy doesn’t come back.

00:19:00- Ryan Miner: You would think, out of the one thing

00:19:01- Kirk Sherad: Out of the one thing, for use, this guy would come back for his glass eye, and he never came back. ANd, you know what? I thought they were round. Like a ball or marble, you just pop it in.

00:19:13- RYan Miner: Well, are eyeballs round?

00:19:15- Kirk Sherad: I dunno, well yeah they are, but anyway, it wasn’t round, it was kinda just a piece that goes over the eye socket, it just fits in.

00:19:29- Ryan Miner: So somewhere there was just a guy running around with one eye.

00:19:32- Kirk Sherad: WIth one eye. And who knows if he’s still alive, he was quite old when he came in, but anyways, Dave had it put on a chain  and had an inscription put on it, and it says ‘Here’s lookin’ at you babe.’ And he still wears it to this days! I saw him about 3 weeks ago and he’s still wearing this eye on a chain that says Here’s lookin’ at you babe.

00:19:57- Ryan Miner: That’s a good one. You know, I have this story, and I know this is a G-rated show, and I want to keep it as such. I’m not a sheltered person, I’ve seen some things in my life, I’m not a crazy person either. I had one time, and I didn’t know they had such a  thing before the guy brought it in, but it was a sex swing. I guess I was sheltered, I asked him what is a sex swing, and he didn’t say anything but pulled out a brochure, and I’m like… okay. And he  proceeded to let me know that it was lightly used. And the end of the story is a didn’t end up taking it because a lightly used sex swing doesn’t sound like something I would sell. Anyway, the guy tried. I didn’t take it, so I don’t have it for sale, so nobody ask. THe point is that we’ll take a look at anything you have. That’s what I tell people when they call me on the phone, bring it in!

00:21:46- Kirk Sherad: Did you see counseling after reading the brochure?

00:21:50- Ryan Miner: They were drawings, thankfully, so, yeah. Bring the stuff down, now, we don’t only do loans, just to kinda tell you how it works, we do loans on items that have damaging(?). We keep the items here, you can come back and get them, buy them back for a small interest, you can roll the loan over if you want to pay interest on that item, but we also, buy items, so if you want to just come in and sell that item , you can come in and sell it, without having any further obligation or attachment to that item. It’s a great alternative that doesn’t want some spooky guy coming to their house if they sell on KSL. There’s a piece of mind there, you know, you don’t know who you’re dealing with over the phone, although you may not get as much from than from a private party, it’s quick cash, and it’s a safe, controlled environment. That’s a peace of mind for a lot of people. DId you deal with a lot of purchases or was it mainly just pawns.

00:23:08- Kirk Sherad: Right at the time that I was getting ready to leave there they had gone over to the sale and purchase option. Before that I don’t think there as a sale option before that, when I started working there it was pawn only. I think that’s something that’s come along later, was was just starting to come along when I was in that business.

00:23:27- Ryan Miner: Yeah, I think it’s a fairly new concept to the pawn industry. Everybody thinks it’s just loans or whatever, but there’s been some state legislation change that’s made it a little bit easier for pawn shops to work that way. 20 years ago, it was a different industry. Now, like I said, I like to think that we’re coming out of the dark ages. There’s some TV programs that kinda strike ;people’s curiosity, and I’m thankful for those programs. They’re not at all real, in case you didn’t know that. THey’re pretty contrived.

00:24:11- Kirk Sherad: This isn’t real either.

00:24:12- Ryan Miner: No, this is all scripted. If you ever wanna come down and see what really happens in the pawn industry, come and hang out! I don’t mind, you can come down, grab a chair, and see what we do.

00:24:28- Kirk Sherad: The cool thing about bringing something down to Ryan would be that you can be like the show and find out what your item is worth, or what the value is there, and just have fun with Ryan. You don’t have to feel uncomfortable by coming down.

00:24:42- Ryan Miner: I’m very user friendly.

00:24:43- Kirk Sherad: Yes he’s very user friendly. As we talked about with the sex swing.

00:24:49- Ryan Miner: I didn’t laugh at the guy! I took him seriously, then laughed afterwards.

00:24:59- Kirk Sherad: He got out to the car with his buddies like Yeah it was so funny with the sex swing! We should have video taped it!

00:25:07- Ryan Miner: A couple of weeks ago I was at a doctor’s appointment for some of my kids, of course, we get into conversations, because all the nurses know what I do and are all TELL US ANOTHER STORY! So, I told them that story, and they all wanted to climb beneath a counter. I really shouldn’t have told them that.

00:25:29- Kirk Sherad: That’s the last time they’ll ever ask you for a story.

00:25:31- Ryan Miner: Yeah, I didn’t mean for that to happen, but…

00:25:33- Kirk Sherad: Ryan’s fun at parties too! Just leave your sex swings at home.

00:25:39- Ryan Miner: Please, please! I don’t take sex swings, or anything like that. I guess that’s where I draw the line.

00:25:46- Kirk Sherad: We can go away from sex swings now.

00:25:49- Ryan Miner: This is a G-rated show! It really is! Anyway, I love to hear from people, either through my email, or my facebook side, or google+, or whatever it might be, tell me what you wanna hear! We’ll get people in here, other pawnbrokers, people you wanna hear from, or things you might wanna hear! That’s how I kinda wanna run this is by your suggestions. Anything else to add Kirk?

00:26:23- Kirk Sherad: No, I don’t think so.

00:26:25- Ryan Miner: You gotta get off to work in a second.

00:26:27- Kirk Sherad: Yeah, I gotta go down and open up my shop!

00:26:28- Ryan Miner: Kirk owns Jerks Bikes at the shop down the street in Murray. He has great service, just like we do here. We actually collaborate on some stuff, like if I don’t know something about a bike.

00:26:43- Kirk Sherad: Ryan sends all his sex swings to me.

00:26:45- Ryan Miner: I want that back, by the way. Anyway, I appreciate you coming Kirk, we hope to have you on swoon, and we appreciate your eyeball story.

00:27:01- Kirk Sherad: There’s nothing like an eyeball story.

00:27:03- Ryan Miner: Absolutely. Give it up for Kirk! See ya.

00:27:08- Dennis Duce: You and I talked about one more thing that wanted to look at doing, it came up just before we went live, which is that both of us are bilingual. And you get to use that bilingual thing, quite often around the shop here.

00:27:29- Ryan Miner: I speak more spanish here almost, than I do ENglish. ANd I’m thankful for that. I have a very big spanish clientele that knows I can communicate with them, and they can feel comfortable.. I love that I’m able to communicate.

00:27:49- Dennis DUce: So, for the next two minutes, we’re gonna do the Lightning Spanish Round. For the next two minutes, the show’s going Spanish. Sorry, we don’t have the technology to give you subtitles underneath, so, it’ll only be two minutes, so let’s go.


00:29:53- Dennis Duce: That’s it! That’s our Spanish Lightning round, we’ll do that towards the end of each episode.

00:30:01-Ryan Miner: Absolutely

00:30:01- Dennis Duce: So, this is our first episode, again, ask questions! Facebook, email address, write in the conversation underneath this, we would love to hear what you want from Pawn Boys.

00:30:16- Ryan Miner: What do you wanna hear? What are the things that you’ve always wanted to know about the pawn industry? I’d love to hear it. We’ll try to do our best to cover it, get it on, maybe get the right guest on to talk to who maybe has some different insights, I mean I know you don’t wanna see my ugly mug every week, but we’ll get some different people on here that you can check out.

00:30:35- Dennis Duce: That’s right, so thank you very much for watching this weeks episode of Pawn Boys.

00:30:41- Ryan Miner: Thank you very much, hope to see you next week!

00:30:43- Dennis Duce: And tell all your friends about it, and tell us what you wanna hear, and we will be talking 9:30 next week right here on google+, and, we will see you again soon!

00:31:00- *SPANISH WORDS*
