Our guest is Jacob Vanderslice, a real estate developer and investor with a diverse portfolio. In this conversation, we dive deep into succeeding in closing. We talk about the different ways to fund your deals, the benefits of self-storage investing, and what it's like to connect with institutional investors. Don't miss out on this episode! Learn more about Jacob and his journey at reiclarity.com! “We're not seeing appraisal misses on the self-storage front.”   05:17 At the beginning of our conversation, Jacob explains the basics of a commercial real estate transaction and the closing process that he follows.  Underwriting. Submitting the letter of intent to the seller. Executing the contract. Depositing the earnest money (typically between $50k to $500k). Due diligence and ordering a variety of third-party reports about the property.   The appraisal is a very important part of the closing process. An appraisal is designed for lenders to get third-party validation on the value of the property.  “We think the definition of wealth is durable, recurring revenue that gives you an above-market yield.”   11:22 Jacob has a very diverse portfolio and a big part of it is self-storage. According to him, self-storage has historically been very resistant to recessions and downturns and the revenue stream is very granular and dynamic. His company got into this asset class in 2015 and has only sold 1 out of their 35 self-storage facilities due to the steady cash flow. “Raising capital is all about creating credibility. You're not pitching or asking for money, you're educating someone on the asset class.”    22:10 Jacob explains the difference between a syndication and a fund. Syndication is getting into one single deal, while funds are investing in a collection of assets. Syndications tend to be a bit more flexible.   Jacob likes the fund system and he has self-storage funds. Their first fund was just $10M and their most recent one was around $40M. This is a small amount compared to when institutional investors are involved, as those funds can be around $300M.

Today we are joined by Gabriel Luna-Ostaseski, the Co-Founder of Braintrust — the first user-controlled talent network that provides enterprises with the highly skilled technical and design talent they need. In this conversation we explore how Braintrust operates, the providers they work with, and how staking Braintrust tokens — BTrust —  help to build trust and build quality of supply in the Braintrust network. Prior to founding Braintrust, Gabe co-founded the home improvement marketplace Modernize.com. Recently he has consulted, advised, and invested in 50+ Silicon Valley startups including Thumbtack, Uber, Surfair and Lendinghome, Metromile and Massdrop. The first five companies he advised raised over $300M in follow-on funding. A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website: https://boundaryless.io/podcast/braintrust/ Key highlights of the conversation We discussed: > How radically dropping for both sides of the marketplace provides incentives to stay on the platform and unlock a whole new type and scale of transactions  > How incentives can be used to make the network perform key value contributions such as referrals, vetting, and assessing the quality of transactions   > How Staking (of tokens) emerges as the new primitive of building trust in the network > Using Web3 without making things overly complicated  > The institutional complexity of building for the web 3: one foundation, 6 service providers, and a community > How SAFT bootstrapping can be used as a new way to valorize an early-stage company versus the traditional ways (discontinuous valuation steps at liquidity events).

On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick answers questions from listeners about the state of the San Francisco Giants. Among the questions asked and answered are: Should the Giants be in on Carlos Correa? He is one of the only players that has all the traits that the Giants like since Bryce Harper (plate discipline, strikeout rate, defense, and power). He is willing to play 3rd base, and Evan Longoria's one year should not affect his free agent fit. Why not Correa? He's still young. He's an impact bat that we need to replace Buster Posey. He's a premium defender that has said he's open to playing 3rd in the right situation. And, he'd be a great mentor for the young phenom, Marco Luciano. Makes sense to me What is the likelihood they bring back Kris Bryant? o this was the off-season we've all been waiting for from a spending standpoint. Obviously there's a different direction. Where do you see Giants' payroll compared to the league during this new era. Do you ever see the Giants making a big 10-year, $300M+ deal, and if so which player would that be in the future? With so much payroll flexibility in the coming years and a rising farm system, when do you think we sign a cornerstone player in free agency? Which upcoming free agents stand out to you?

How do you build massive wealth while keeping your passions, family, faith, and bank account intact? Successful real estate investors will tell you the same thing: you need to automate and systematize to make time for it all, and they aren't kidding. Whitney Sewell was working as a cop when he got his start in real estate. Looking at his $35,000 salary, he realized that the long hours and tiresome, but enjoyable work, wouldn't allow him financial freedom.Whitney wanted more time with his kids, his wife, and his beloved horses. So, he started attending every real estate conference he could go to, networking with anyone who owned any amount of real estate. He hired a performance coach, built a successful podcast, and flipped his limiting beliefs on their head, so he could tackle big deals.In only three years, Whitney built a real estate empire with over $300M assets under management. Part of his personal profits are donated to help adopted children and those who need adoptive parents. Whitney talks about how his faith and social goals have played a huge part in his real estate and how doing good must be the driving force behind wealth accumulation.In This Episode We Cover:Why it's important to “overcommit” if you really want to succeed in real estateThe “most dangerous book to reach on a beach”Why your network is your net worth and pushing yourself to connect with other like-minded investorsWhy wealth and faith don't need to contradict each otherGiving yourself the “thinking time” to spawn new, ingenious ideasOutsourcing and upgrading your business so you can make more while loving lifeAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBiggerPockets Pro Membership - Use discount code: podcast21BiggerPockets BlogsBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets WebinarsBiggerPockets Real Estate PodcastBiggerPockets Books by Brandon TurnerThe Official BiggerPockets Facebook groupBiggerPockets Podcast 401: Follow these Steps to Get People to Know, Like, and Trust You with Jordan HarbingerBiggerPockets Podcast 227: From Single Family Houses to $130,000,000 in Multifamily with Joe FairlessHarley DavidsonStraight Path Horses WebsiteClick here to check the full show notes: https://www.biggerpockets.com/show540See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Investing in emerging markets isn't easy. Investing in emerging markets when you want to make a positive social and environmental impact presents even more challenges. For instance, raising capital is more challenging because you have to overcome both the typical investor belief that positive impact will come at a cost to returns and the tendency to write off unfamiliar markets as far too risky.Today's guest co-founded an asset management firm that has successfully navigated these challenges on its path to growing its asset base to over $300M USD. Serge LeVert-Chiasson is Managing Director of Impact & COO at Sarona Asset Management; an asset manager investing in private equity & private debt in frontier and emerging markets around the world.What's especially interesting is that Sarona was born out of a relatively small, but highly respected charitable organization known as MEDA (Mennonite Economic Development Associates); which itself got its start in 1953 as a social enterprise when 7 North American Mennonite business people began running a dairy farm with Ukrainian Mennonite refugees in Paraguay who had escaped the 2nd world war.During this episode of the podcast, Serge and I discuss Sarona's unique history and how that shapes its culture to this day; the way Sarona invests in and alongside financial intermediaries in emerging & frontier markets; its approach to impact measurement & management as a fund of funds, the role that faith plays in many communities across the globe, examples of the types of direct and indirect investments that Sarona makes, and Serge's involvement in CAFIID (Canada Forum for Impact Investment & Development). And be sure to stay tuned to the very end when Serge shares his thoughts for what is necessary for unlocking more impact investment dollars into emerging and frontier markets.Resources:Sarona Asset Management WebsiteSarona's 2020 Impact ReportSarona's Twitter and LinkedIn accountsSerge's Twitter and LinkedIn accountsCanada Forum For Impact Investment & Development (CAFIID) Website

Online shopping can be dangerous, as the US property website Zillow has belatedly come to realize. While many of us wasted countless hours during the pandemic clicking through real estate listings on Zillow and daydreaming about the sort of pad we'd buy if we had deep pockets, the company was running a side-business, separate from its property searching website, in which it deployed algorithms to help it buy houses themselves and then flip them.It did a lot of buying, but hasn't been so great at the selling. This week the company announced that its home-buying division, Offers, had lost more than $300m over the last few months. Offers will now be shut down and about 2,000 people laid off. Zillow reportedly has about 7,000 homes that it now needs to unload; many for prices lower than it originally paid.Join your host Sean Reynolds, owner of Summit Properties NW, and Reynolds & Kline Appraisal as he takes a look at this developing topic.https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/nov/04/zillow-homes-buying-selling-flip-flopSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/seattlerealestatepodcast)

So what most people would do is if you aren't ready to buy a home or mortgage and you don't close today ... they pretty much move on to the next lead."07:06 "Salespeople can elevate their game is understanding that you can't control timing. Even if there is 'triggering event' that would likely want to purchase your job is to understand you don't control timing, they do."11:49 "Another problem that salespeople make is that they try to close everybody. Well everybody is not your customer."15:21 "If you sell from a scarcity mentality, if you sell to a prospect who is more educated than you about it, you're going to lose the sale anyway."19:35 "If you get real refined about who it is you wanna sell to, who you want to be an expert to and who do you want to be known as your life gets easier."26:26 "You are in control of your business, you're in control of who you want to be in the marketplace. I decided that I wasn't going to be a rate junkie, that was what we called them in the game. I'm going to be an adviser, that's how I approach my business ... and that simple distinction means you behave in a different way."32:38 "The digital marketspace feels very much as nasty and scammy as some of the days in the mortgage industry ...

Some of the earliest documented instances of health misinformation occurred as early as the 1930s. So it's not as recent of a phenomenon as you may think. Obviously, social media has made the speed and prevalence of health misinformation and disinformation much worse. It started with cancer misinformation, but now we are dealing with vaccine misinformation and of course, the battle field is social media. All of the medical and technological advances we have made as a first world country don't make a difference if we can't overcome the health disinformation that is prevalent on social media. Today's guest is Dr. Tara Sell. Dr. Sell is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering and a Senior Associate at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She conducts research to develop a greater understanding of potentially large-scale health events such as disease outbreaks, bioterrorism, natural disasters, or radiological/nuclear events.  Dr. Sell's work focuses on improving public health policy and practice in order to reduce the health impacts of disasters and terrorism. She works on qualitative and quantitative research analyses and uses this research to assist in the development of strategy and policy recommendations. Her primary research interests include biosecurity and biodefense, public health preparedness, emerging infectious disease, federal funding and budgeting, and nuclear preparedness policy and practice. She also serves as an Associate Editor of the peer-reviewed journal Health Security (formerly Biosecurity and Bioterrorism). How to Discern the Truth Determining how true information that you share on social media is can be confusing. Disinformation is designed to look like accurate information and is more easily shareable that you realize. As a society, we have to do 2 things: We need to hold policy makers accountable to the truth and to come up with solutions to address the disinformation. We have to have a national strategy that controls the spread and sources of misinformation and a system to promote good information, increase public resiliency to misinformation and bring all of the stakeholders together. Identifying Misinformation Needs to be a Top Priority Misinformation is intentionally designed to play on your emotions, and be so compelling that you will also want to share it. We need to have a unified effort to show people the tactics that are being used to make us an unwitting accomplice in the spread of misinformation. There are online fact checking tools that simply aren't used enough. Additionally, when misinformation is prevalent, there isn't a cohesive strategy to help us share the truth as a countermeasure to the misinformation. Better digital literacy will go a long way in helping combat misinformation. Government Skepticism One thing that is hindering the adoption of the safe and effective vaccines, is the general distrust of the government. It's not good for the government to be playing the role as the arbiter of truth in these situations. The government needs to be more transparent and bring together different agencies and address misinformation from a public health perspective, but it also needs to bleed into the national security side of government.  We need a national strategy to confront health misinformation across the spectrum, so that it can more easily be identified and stamped out. Being Caught In the Middle With Friends and Family Many people are dreading the potential confrontations that may happen at the Thanksgiving table over the medical misinformation on the different sides of the political arguments. If you find yourself in this situation, Tara advises: Engage respectfully. No one will be convinced of the truth if they are dismissed or ridiculed. Connect over shared values. Everyone wants their children and their families to be safe. Talk about the tactics used to spread misinformation and your experience with it. Discuss alternative explanations for the conspiracy theories and use information sources that people will accept. Provide trusted sources for information that are not the CDC or WHO since they have become targets. Use Johns Hopkins or other reputable medical sources. Enlist the help of trusted family members. The High Cost of Misinformation Tara's organization did an analysis of what the actual misinformation is costing us, as medical misinformation has been declared a public health emergency. If 5% of non-vaccination is caused by medical misinformation, that leads to a cost of $50M in harm each day of a non-Delta surge environment. It would be even bigger during the Delta surge or if that non-vaccination number due to misinformation is higher.  If it's 30% then that number increases to a cost of $300M dollars per day. Who Is It Costing? The cost of misinformation is spread out across sectors, but where ever there are people bearing more of the burden for misinformation, the associated costs are also concentrated there. What Can You Do? We have to face the fact that health related misinformation is going to be with us for a while. We aren't just going to be done with it when the pandemic is over. New targets will emerge. We have to make investments in solutions for health misinformation. We have to work on our own resilience. Encourage friends and family to be more resilient to misinformation as well.   Resources: Connect with Tara on Twitter @skirkell Chamber of Progress Website Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

    In this episode of the Road to Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Mike Smerklo. Mike is an experienced entrepreneur, investor and business leader driven by the desire to turn ideas into reality. Having bought and scaled a small business into a publicly traded company worth nearly a billion dollars in value, he has a deep understanding of the hard work, dedication and grit that truly powers successful entrepreneurship. Today, as the co-founder and managing director of Next Coast Ventures, Smerklo is a champion for a new generation of entrepreneurs building disruptive companies in big markets. His new book, Mr. Monkey and Me (Scribe Media, Nov. 17, 2020), is a “real talk” guide for entrepreneurs who want to cut through the noise to cultivate a mindset that supports greatness.      Mike grew up in a blue-collar family outside of Toledo, Ohio, with dreams of achieving something more with his life. After working his way through college to earn an accounting degree and moving to Chicago to launch his CPA career, he eventually talked his way into a junior analyst gig with the Wall Street investment bank Lehman Brothers. While he hated the job, surviving two years of hellish 100-hour workweeks and countless spreadsheets (so many spreadsheets) gave Mike a solid understanding of finance and company building. He went on to earn an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and experienced the Silicon Valley dot-com boom as an investment banker at Morgan Stanley.    Mike was recruited by legendary entrepreneurs Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz as one of the first employees of their new startup, Loudcloud. Here, he learned from the very best about what it takes to grow a company from an idea through an initial public offering. Mike began his own entrepreneurship journey in 2003, purchasing ServiceSource, a 30-person technology services startup in San Francisco. As CEO over the next 12 years, he grew the business into a successful 3,000-person publicly traded company with close to $300M in revenue.      In Mr. Monkey and Me, Mike draws on his broad range of experiences and mistakes as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist. Using lessons he learned from renowned entrepreneurs, he developed the SHAPE formula -- Self, Help, Authenticity, Persistence and Expectations -- which gives readers an actionable approach to mental toughness that will help any entrepreneur start, grow and run a successful business. An anti-memoir, Mr. Monkey and Me features practical tools and the “other stuff” you don't normally learn in classrooms or business books, such as the mental hurdles you have to overcome, the risks you have to take and the sacrifices and mistakes you'll make to become a successful entrepreneur.     He has developed a new perspective on entrepreneurship at the helm of the Austin-based firm Next Coast Ventures, which has backed more than 40 companies across two funds to help startup founders achieve their goals. Mike and his wife spend the bulk of their free time chasing their four children.  Learn more and connect with Mike Smerklo by visiting him on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mikesmerklo/ Youtube : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC61Mtr5kAat0Wu6RCFE_9iQ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mikesmerklo/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/mikesmerklo   Be sure to follow us on Twitter: Twitter.com/to_growth on Facebook: facebook.com/Road2Growth   Subscribe to our podcast across the web: https://www.theenriquezgroup.com/blog Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2Cdmacc iTunes: https://apple.co/2F4zAcn Castbox: http://bit.ly/2F4NfQq Google Play: http://bit.ly/2TxUYQ2 Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKnzMRkl-PurAb32mCLCMeA?view_as=subscriber
