NINE. TEN. ELEVEN. TWELVE. THIRTEEN. FOURTEEN. FIFTEEN. SIXTEEN. SEVENTEEN. EIGHTEEN. NINETEEN. TWENTY. THAT’S BECAUSE THERE’S A CREDIT LINE HERE. SO IT’S NINETEEN PLUS ONE IS TWENTY IS CORRECT.

$127 MILLION. NOT TOO BAD. THAT’S LESS THAN HALF. AS LONG AS THE NUMBER STAYS BELOW 50 PERCENT
WE’RE DOING GOOD. YOU DON’T WANT TO OWE THE BANK MORE THAN HALF OF WHAT YOU’RE WORTH. BECAUSE THEN YOU GET IN A LITTLE DANGEROUS…. IT COULD BE DANGER COMING. OKAY. THIS LOOKS KOSHER. IT’S GOING TO THE BANK. ONCE THEY GET PDF THAT’S LIKE PUTTING A ‘K’
ON IT FOR ‘KOSHER’. (PHONE RINGING) WHERE’S THAT DAMN SPREADSHEET FROM HELL? I NEED TO BE ABLE TO PRINT THAT SUCKER OUT SOMEHOW. WHO IS IT? (BEEP) OH NO.

NEW MEXICAN GRILL. (PHONE RINGING) THIS IS EDDIE’S PHONE RINGER.>WHAT’S UP, PANDA?>BEN: WHAT THE HELL YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT MY FATHER FOR? HE NEVER DREAMED OF HAVING ANYTHING. HE NEVER REALLY, YOU KNOW, TOOK ANY RISKS IN LIFE. HE MADE A LOT OF MISTAKES TRYING TO PLAY IT SAFE. BUT A BIG DEAL ON A FRIDAY NIGHT WAS HE’D SAY “HEY, WE’RE GONNA GO OUT FOR A CHEESEBURGER” AT THE LOCAL, WE FIRST GOT MCDONALD’S THEN OR WHATEVER WE HAD. AND HE’D MAKE US BRING OUR OWN CHEESE BECAUSE HE DIDN’T WANNA PAY FIVE CENTS EXTRA. IMAGINE GOING OUT FOR A BURGER AND EVERYBODY HAVING A F—ING SLICE OF CHEESE IN THEIR HAND READY TO PUT IT ON YOUR BURGER WHEN YOU GET IT. IT’S SICK. IT’S CRAZY. ANYWAY, MY FATHER IS A NICE GUY BUT NO BALLS. WE HAPPENED TO BE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD CLOSE BY WHERE MY FATHER’S AT. WE RESCUED HIM OUT OF BROOKLYN WHERE HIS STEP KIDS ARE TRYING TO KILL HIM AND GIVING HIM THE WRONG MEDICATIONS SO THEY CAN GET ALL HIS MONEY. NICE TO KNOW HE HAS ALL THIS MONEY SOCKED AWAY EVEN THOUGH WE LIVED THE LIKE S— OUR WHOLE GODDAMN LIVES. SO HE’S LIVING HERE NOW. WE’RE GONNA GO PAY HIM A VISIT. HE’S 94. HE PROBABLY DON’T REMEMBER WHO THE HELL I AM. WE COULDN’T SPEND TIME AS A FAMILY, WE COULDN’T BE HAPPY. NONE OF US EVEN LIKED BEING AROUND EACH OTHER. IT WAS JUST, YOU KNOW,
IT WAS TERRIBLE. (SINGING) ?: WHEN THE REST OF THE CROWD GOES HOME…>BEN: WHEN HE HAD THE CHANCE TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME WITH ME AND MY KIDS HE DIDN’T DO IT. HE LET SOME NEW WOMAN F—ING DIRECT HIS LIFE. THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. WHERE HE SHOULD’VE BEEN MAN ENOUGH TO TAKE CONTROL AND SAID “HEY, I’M GONNA SPEND TIME WITH MY KIDS. I’M GONNA BE CLOSE TO THEM AS A FATHER.” AND HE LET OTHER PEOPLE STEER HIM AWAY FROM HIS OWN CHILDREN, AND THAT I CAN NEVER RESPECT AND I’D NEVER DO TO MINE. THE ONLY TIME I EVER TOOK HIS ADVICE, HE SAID “BEFORE YOU MAKE A DECISION THINK ABOUT WHAT I WOULD DO AND THEN DO THE OPPOSITE.” AND THAT HAS WORKED FOR ME, I WILL ADMIT. HE TOLD ME TO BE A GARBAGEMAN, ACTUALLY TOLD ME THE BEST THING FOR ME TO BE WAS. AND THERE WAS NO BOND THERE. HE TOOK ALL THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES THAT HE COULD’VE MADE UP FOR ALL THE ROTTEN EARLY YEARS AND HE DIDN’T TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT TIME. IF YOU DON’T PUT INTO A RELATIONSHIP, WHETHER IT’S YOUR PARENTS, YOUR CHILDREN, WHATEVER, YOU DON’T GET S— OUT OF IT. YOU PUT MONEY IN THE BANK, YOU GOT MONEY IN THE BANK. YOU DON’T PUT MONEY IN THE BANK, YOU AIN’T GOT S—. THE SAME THING. HOW OLD ARE YOU?>CHARLES: VERY YOUNG.>NO. NO. THAT’S YOUR SON. THIS IS BENNY.>CHARLES: BENNY?>BENNY.

BECAUSE MY MOTHER WAS CLEARLY… SHE WAS INTOLERABLE. I CAN FORGIVE HIM FOR ALL OF THE S— THAT WENT ON FROM THE TIME I WAS BORN
UNTIL I BECAME 18. HE HAD THE CHANCE TO BE A FATHER TO ME AFTER I WAS 18 AND HE CLEARLY LIVED A SEPARATE LIFE AND LET IT BE CLEAR THAT, WELL, YOU KNOW, WE’LL TALK ON THE PHONE. NO VISITS. NO SPENDING TIME TOGETHER. NO SEEING HIS GRANDKIDS. YOU KNOW, TALK ON THE PHONE. TAKE THE PHONE AND
SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS. YOU WANNA TALK ON THE PHONE. I DON’T NEED TO
TALK ON THE PHONE. I NEED A FATHER. I DON’T NEED THE
FATHER ON THE PHONE.>YOU GOT NEW GLASSES LAST WEEK.>CHARLES: I DID?>YOU DID.>CHARLES: THESE
ARE NEW GLASSES?>THOSE ARE NEW GLASSES. AUNT RACHEL TOOK YOU
TO GO GET THEM.>CHARLES: THEY LOOK
THE SAME TO ME. ♪ ♪>BEN: NOW HE’S DEAD AND GONE IT’S JUST LIKE HE WAS HERE. THERE’S NO DIFFERENCE. HE WAS DEAD AND GONE
WHEN HE WAS HERE. HE DIDN’T REALLY
EXIST IN MY LIFE. HE DIDN’T WANNA BE
PART OF MY LIFE. HE DIDN’T WANNA BE
A GRANDFATHER. HE DIDN’T CARE. HE JUST WAS CONTENT
BEING A SCHMO. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. ALL I CAN TELL YOU IS WHEN HE PASSED AWAY HE PASSED AWAY. IT DIDN’T REALLY MEAN MUCH. NOW MY MOTHER… WHEN THAT DAY COMES I’M GONNA PARTY. I’M GONNA BECOME IRISH. WE’RE GONNA HAVE THE BIGGEST F—ING WAKE YOU’VE EVER SEEN. I’M GONNA DANCE ON HER F—ING COFFIN. THANK GOD THE WITCH IS DEAD. (SINGING) ?: WHEN THE REST OF THE CROWD GOES HOME I’LL ALWAYS GO HOME ALONE>BEN: (YAWNING) FINALLY. IT SEEMS LIKE WE GOT SOMEBODY HERE WITH A BRAIN. “WOW, THIS IS GONNA SUCK. KONCRETE IS STUPID. WE NEED MORE BEN, NOT THIS S—. BEN ACTUALLY INSPIRED ME TO GET OFF MY ASS. F— YOU, KONCRETE! SUCK MY DICK.” THAT GUY’S SMART. PEOPLE ARE STARVING
IN THE WORLD. PEOPLE ARE DROWNING
IN THE WORLD. WE GOT ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD FOR COMPUTERS AND POKÉMON AND ALL THIS CRAP BUT PEOPLE ARE STILL STARVING IN THE WORLD AND PEOPLE ARE STILL LIVING LIKE PRISONERS IN COUNTRIES. TRUMP IS JUST LOOKING TO BE… YOU KNOW, HE CAN’T BE A KING BECAUSE WE DON’T
HAVE KINGS ANYMORE. SO THE NEXT BEST THING TO BEING A KING IS BEING
THE PRESIDENT. SO HE’S GONNA PUSH
HIS WAY INTO THAT. HE’S JUST ON AN EGO TRIP. HE DON’T REALLY CARE, TRUST ME. HE CARES ABOUT TRUMP. I KNOW THE TYPE. I GREW UP AROUND THE TYPE. THEY CARE ABOUT ONE THING – THEMSELVES AND HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO KISS THEIR ASS ON A DAILY BASIS.

  1. Men you dead wrong , never disrespect your father like that ! Never if you don't have anything nice to say about your parent then just shut up.

  2. No matter how bad your mom was, she is your mom. She gave you birth and the least she did was bare the pain while giving you birth so atleast respect her bit

  3. Ben as always spitting that knowledge. Anyone interested youtube Dr. Joseph Murphy, Neville Goddard, Earle Nightingale. They were the original
    "self help" guys back in the 1920s-1950s.

  4. Video's like this should be winning awards. It's truly a rags to riches story. Just goes to show the mindful one's out there you can thrive while trying to survive.

  5. Hey man id like to say ben is awesome he's not taking crap doesnt care what ppl think and gets to the danm point go ben but i would love to just hang with him for 1 day im a local lets make this happen lol

  6. Why did I start watching this loud ,chain smoking, obnoxious, fat , east coaster. Fuck its because I am headed to the same fuckin place fuck fuck FUCK!!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  7. Fucking wow dude… his perspective toward his parents is so rough …idk why I don't feel the same way tbh…

  8. You inspired me to get off my ass too. I thank you i will work hard and have a strong passion to be like you one day and i look up to you . We have the same not giving a fuck personality and i dont want to be average middle class i will fight and crawl to the top no matter what i takes . I respect you and will work hard to do good things in the future and take notes from what you’ve built.

  9. U can see he is hurt from his childhood! U seem like a great father to your kids so that speaks volumes!!!

  10. The people who say money doesn’t buy you happiness live a crappy life with a crappy car with a crappy wife and a crappy job. Love you Ben one of the very few people with agree with the fact that money does really buy you happiness.

  11. Hahahah
    You like the heat ? you should get used to it for where you're going 🤣 He's talking about Hell slow ones.

  12. Looks like you turned, you around, because of the f up's in upbringing. Right move! I'm still rough on my ways, but I made changes myself, and overall feel good about them.

  13. @ 3:08 . . . best real estate advice you'll ever hear . . . follow this one rule and you'll have a great career

  14. Ben, IDK man, your dad's outlook was shaped so much by the Great Depression. He watched people who made investments / start businesses lose everything and felt like saving money was the safest thing he could do. My dad's wired the same way. And then yeah, based on Episode 7, your mom was nuts. (Had to wonder what he saw in her.) Go easy on him. I'm sure he loved you as best as he knew how.

  15. I liked you until I saw this video you are a disrespectful ass and you better get used to the heat also you will be right behind your dad you fat slob

  16. Ben mallah is a real Man with balls what you said about parents is a good lesson that parents are not parents by giving birth to thier kids infact parents are those whose raise their kids

  17. I like fat boy's personality….I'm drunk I forget his name lol. Anyways who else wan'ts to be able to smoke Newports like ain't nobody going nowhere soon…Cause you got the mothere-effin money.

  18. i know he said his dad was a little shitty but i cant help it i love super old people there so cute how there old and shit

  19. Well Ben lost me on the anti Trump comment, especially since he doesnt know him & merely throws him into a group of people he dislikes. Up until that he seemed to be pretty intelligent… I guess this shows
    Being smart in realestate doesnt make you smart in everything.

  20. Bro I can’t with Ben 😂😂😂 the whole video I felt sad until the last 30 seconds when he was talking about partying after his mother. I lost it 😂😂😂

  21. moron women do that dont see ur kids.. then if u try its ur dads a bastard as a father ul not win… womans tactic..

  22. Ben I am Irish from Dublin I’ll make you a party like you’ve never seen they’ll be talking about it for years. We party like no other at a wake.

  23. Respect for Ben. He's a real man who faces challenges head on and doesn't let life get the best of him.

  24. Thank god the witches dead🤣🤣🤣🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️

  25. I don't want to end up in a old folks home. Hopefully i have it together in the head enough to blow my brains out before that point.

  26. I think this is Ben's watch from the intro TWO TONE ROLEX SUBMARINER 16803 BLUE BEZEL – https://www.google.com/search?q=TWO+TONE+ROLEX+SUBMARINER+16803+BLUE+BEZEL&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=NNrphPX5RW9syM%253A%252Cr7_2PcNt08FILM%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kQ38QnLltwhe2TmV-AX44pMJlstlQ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwix3MP54-fjAhUxNH0KHXwQD8UQ9QEwDXoECAgQCQ#imgrc=NNrphPX5RW9syM:

  27. I'm a broken sailor and Irishman we would proudly welcome you. Looking into finance and business management because that's about all I'll be good for after the Navy.

  28. He said my dad has no balls he made us bring our own cheese. HAHAHAH im crying on the floor right now. "Im gonna dance on my mom's coffin thank god the witch is dead". HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA I fucking love this guy man.

  29. I can appreciate his financial prowess solely observed in a vacuum without the myriad variables and repercussions of so simple and myopic a life view. Ben, you have much to offer but miss so much and have no idea of greater consciousness, which is sad but just part of life, etc. I hope you grow and become more self aware, you have a good soul. Like watching a 2d dot moving around on a piece of paper, it has no idea there is anything else to existing beyond its perception. Good luck Ben, hope you realize the peace of happiness, but know that you have improved your offsprings chances of doing so greatly in best way you know how. Thanks for all the videos Dan, I get it. Take good care of Ben, seems like ya’ll do but easy on the condescending needling. I know it helps relieve the stress from his overbearing personality but you chose this. Buddha consciousness can happen, let go

  30. Is balance of material and spiritual realization possible; can it be fulfilling and devine…..Ben, you have potential, cheers

  31. This video taught me a life lesson: Be good to others while you're young, so you may have some company in your last days.
