Huge fan, quick question
Hey Ben, I’ve been following you for awhile and a huge fan of yours. I’ve listened to every episode to all 128 episodes to date. I’ve been trying to get your gold money counter that came out all 3 times but wasn’t able to get them. Is there anyway I could get one without paying stockx prices? I have a few 1oz gold bar, I’m from philly and want to know where I can sell them without getting ripped off and paying minimum commission? Are gold shops suppose to give me the bid price or spot price that I see online, minus like 5-10% commission? Lastly, I also have some 24k gold necklace that I want to sell at spot if possible, can you recommend any places I can sell them? Could be online or LA or even Philly.

Fan Question 10/25
What up Ben, big fan. Two questions here, I’ll keep it short. Q1: I know you were a part of The AirMacks Crew with AM and Homicide. What were your DJ days like? Favorite memory with Adam? Q2: What’s some advice you’d give to 25 year old Ben Baller? Thank you for the fresh, NO B.S, free game you spit every episode. I look forward to it every week. - DJ COMPLEX

Fan Question
I’ve only listen to your podcast because I very good female friend of both ours told me too, but Vegas Dave straight LIED on your podcast, he never went to trial and found guilty or not because he did a PLEA BARGAIN...He used other people’s SSN to make and place bets all over Vegas because they do a check on anything sports wager over 10K, and the DA that work the case and also NO VEGAS sports books will ever “BANNED” you for winning your sports wager because they are regulated by Nevada Gaming Commission, so he can always go to them and appeal his so called “BANNED” which he won’t since that was part of his plea bargain to stay away for any Vegas Sportsbook..Why don’t you do an interview with Sonny Vaccaro or Jay Kornegay who are 2 of the most respected sports books mgr in Vegas Sports Betting Industry, you said theirs alway 2 side to the story right?? well let’s see if this happens...FYI all the Filipinos in Daygo are SouthEast Daygo Paradise Hills not Mira Mesa..Morse High School!

Fan Questions
Hey Ben, I am a female listener and love listening to your podcast. I have 3 older brothers and you remind me of them so a lot of what you say I can relate to. Born and raised in San Diego but I live in Long Beach now. I have 2 questions: what do you recommend in regards to learning about stocks? And with your peoples that you are friends/family with who are for Trump, do you challenge them or what does that conversation look like? Pretty sure my parents voted for Trump but I don’t know how to go about that conversation. We are distant but I am always the one to spark a conversation or challenge them. Thank you much love !!

Hey Ben! ❤️ from Texas
Just wanted to come on here and thank you for this gem of a podcast. I’ve started to enjoy my runs a TON more now while I listen to this- I hit play and run until it’s over. I’ve recently started a diet as well. Breakfast is always the hardest for me...I don’t know what to eat/start the day with. What do you eat or recommend for breakfast?

Coffee!
What's up Ben hyung! I was wondering if you guys got the coffee I sent you. (Ganzi Coffee) I hope you guys enjoy it and I'll be sending a box every time I get a shipment of my green beans. I have Nicolette's matcha coming soon as well! Also, I wanted to make some custom cups to pour my latte art in and was wondering if I could use your quote, "This is not your practice life" with the BB inside of the cups. I'll send you a box for you and the whole fam as well. I don't know if you read what I sent to BTB dm, but you're the main reason why I started Ganzi Coffee and I just want to show my love and respect for you and the whole team. Thank you and much love hyung! -Mehdi Chung

What up
Man your podcast is so fire. So much game you spit and the guest you have. Hands down the best podcast I’ve listened too. Being disabled and not working as much as I use too. Your podcast motivates me but I can’t depend on people taking me to point A to point B. Any advice what I can do from home? I just can’t find my niche honestly.

Hey Ben, been following your grind ever since I started watching your show on YouTube and just recently started listening to the pod in January when you had your emergency podcast on the great Kobe Bryant (rest in peace). Laker4life. F**k the clippers. Since then I’ve caught up and I’m so grateful to have stumbled upon your podcast! Question, do you have any stories with legendary LA native Big Boy? Since you both are OGs and legends from the city, I’d figure why not. Anf if so, would you ever consider having him on the podcast? Thanks Ben. Sending love and good health to you and your family and please continue to keep it a thousand! Peace 🇵🇭💜💛

“Vegas Dave” was a guest 😂😂😂
Dave lies about his picks, his results, and his reasons for being “banned”. He uses social media to scam people. Why doesn’t Ben ask him about buying and selling his fake Michael Jordan card? What about his past domestic violence and bankruptcy issues? Terrible segment and a boring podcast. Ben should have done more research. He sounds cool, but anyone that gives Dave Oancea a platform is part of the problem. I’m out.

KTOWN, ALASKA——- WHITE TEES??
Hey Ben, my name is Vincent and I am a really big fan of the podcast and like everyone else has been listening since the very beginning. I’ve also been following you since the Nike Talk days and when IF&Co was Icee Fresh. I have purchased a few pieces over the ear and my family and I love them. I was personal friends with Neek and Angela from Vegas, Just to give you an idea of how small the world is for us. The reason I am reaching out with my subject title is because previously there were times where you were talking about white tees. So I was wondering if you have ever heard of the company out in Vernon called Standard Issue Tees. I am a big fan of their stuff, it’s simple and straight to the point with minimal branding. Their clothes are pre-shrunk so they keep their fit and shape. And I just thought I wonder if Ben Baller has ever tried this company. I’m a big fan of their garments and since I know you are a tasteful guy when it comes to certain things that maybe you would appreciate the the tees they make. I was wondering that if you were too busy to check them out if I could send you a three pack check out. That’s pretty much it. Hopefully you get a chance to read this and I appreciate you taking the time if you do. Thank you in advance and always looking forward to every episode. Vincent from Ketchikan “K-Town”, Alaska

Great Podcast
Whats up Ben, Been a fan of yours for a minute, just started listening to the podcast. Any advice on networking? How did you amass such diverse group of friends celebs/businessmen/fashion designers/etc..... Seems like you done known everybody for 15+ years. Would you attribute all that to growing up and living in LA or is there a method behind it? Also did some art for you some years back you used it as a profile pic for awhile is there anyway I can send a mounted print out of it. Preciate all the game bro.

Relationship with your dad
Ben, I found you by searching Jimmyboi, I listened to that episode and have been listening to you ever since. I wanted to ask, Even though you’ve had issues with your dad in the past, do you allow him to be a part of your kids’ lives as a “grandpa”? Thanks, Dustinn K

Are you going to extract CBD from your Jonas strain? It would be dope to see more kush out on the market with all of its cbd still in the bud. I know it’s money but I also feel ever since weed became legal it’s been Money over quality. The herb in LA nowadays doesn’t even come close to the Kush being pushed by your local plug back in ‘06/07. What’s your opinion on that matter?

Couple of three things to ask...got some nice quality gold chains and pendants, including my mid size Jesus piece from IF&co.. but I have some that get no love (not that Icey Fresh tho!)..How do u suggest I get rid of the 250 grams of chains and pendants? Piece out on eBay, pawn shop, jewelry store? Bc its nice sellable stuff should I expect above ,below or at spot? I’m 43 and we have the same taste in music..Special Ed -I got it made -is that joint that gets me going, what’s ur golden era joint? Lastly, need one of them Ben Baller stickers if u got em!

The best business podcast.
Hey Ben, thank you for coming out with this podcast. Been rockin with you since you had your show on YouTube back in the day. I appreciate all the knowledge you have drop on the podcast. It has definitely sped up my thinking process on my ventures. I have a few questions for you. I run a few small businesses and I am having difficulties moving to the next level on a few of them. I’ve tried everything I could think of at this point. I almost feel like I’m running in circles 😣. What do you recommend me doing to take my company to the next level? Here’s a few things about me to hopefully make the question easier to answer: -I am Asian. My salary was cut in half due to the pandemic but I had a little money saved, made a plan and I bounced back. I run my side companies alone. I recently have purchased a small smokeshop during the pandemic with a buddy of mine.I am about to turn 28 in October . I have been building my side companies for almost 5 years now. My glass brand & distribution company has been getting more attention lately just having trouble taking it to the next level. I have a lot of trust issues sharing this company since I grew it from when I had nothing. It’s been a goal of mine for a while. When you were a young adult or even now , is there anyone you looked up to the most as far as mentors to help take your companies to the next level or just random advice ? Would you be down to do a collaboration on a product for the smokeshop industry in the future? I have a lot of other questions but I’ll just leave it at that. Hopefully this isn’t too much 😂 . Really Looking for award to your advice and answers , could definitely use it right now! Keep blessing us with that knowledge 👊🏽👊🏽🙏🏼
