Alexander Zakharin, "Success can catch you off guard", Managing Director at Avenues Real Estate & TikTok Influencer shares his story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #200 Alexander Zakharin came to this country from Russia just four years ago and has built a successful real estate career primarily through the use of social media. He has over 400,000 followers on TikTok and is a true inspiration. More About Alexander Zakharin: Alexander Zakharin came to this country from Russia just four years ago and has built a successful real estate career primarily through the use of social media. He has almost 400,000 followers on Tik Tok and is a true inspiration. He started his career in the summer of 2018 at GZB Realty (now Avenues Real Estate) after coming to New York from Russia as a rental agent, just like most other brokers. The business was going ok but the deals were so challenging to get because of running multiple ads, answering calls without having time to catch his breath, arranging access to the properties, showing properties every day to the clients, and competing with hundreds of brokers. Before the pandemic, a high-paying buyer declined a deal because of the forthcoming uncertainty, and then Alexander paused the business after the lockdown week in March 2020 to see what can be improved. That's when Alexander decided to create a profile on the famous platform TikTok, to start showcasing properties he was in charge of renting out/selling. All of the sudden after posting beautiful apartments on TikTok, his popularity there exploded and he started getting tonnes of followers, new leads and clients. Fast forward to now, he has: - 400К+ followers on TikTok. - Closed over 150+ deals, including a $4M apartment he sold to a TikTok client and other high-priced properties. -Amazing team and the company that just opened 5 new offices in New York. https://www.tiktok.com/@alexander_zakhari?lang=en About Michael Valdes: Michael Valdes is the President of eXp Global.

The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Lauren, Agent Michelle, Consultant Chris, and Specialist Consultant Aki and Producer of the show Director SP discuss the 2021 Marvel Studios film Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and the weekly Marvel News. The Team welcomes Aki to the podcast and welcome back Agent Michelle to the podcast from her sabbatical. The Team then debriefs you on how their overall impressions of the film are slightly split and why, the mis-translations in the film, how a few Team members were thrown off by language and captions at the beginning of the film, the story of Shang Chi and Xialing's parents, how Wenwu villain motivations were delightful, the future possibilities with Xialing, some deep Marvel Cinematic universe tie ins that were not obvious, the Kung Fu martial arts fighting review, the dragons in the film and how many wished the MCU had them earlier, the wonderful depictions of Chinese mythical creatures in Ta Lo, how the karaoke was amazing AND culturally accurate, how some cultural nuances were not accurately shown on screen, the epic bus fight twitter thread commentary, and the Team members' predictions on where the characters will return in the MCU.

Chi and the Ten Rings Bus Fight Scene https://twitter.com/that_mc/status/1459613123590066180?s=20 Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Finally watching Shang-Chi, here as a bus operator to rate the SFT transit factors of The Bus Scene: Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc SFT (San Francisco Transit?) is using a New Flyer D60 articulated 60 foot motor coach for the 1 California. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc But the bus is headed south on Noe at 21st St, they are seriously off route! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I like these brushed steel and green cushion seats, they look nicer and harder to clean than muni's Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc That's a real ad for the jazz and blues festical you can find in muni buses Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc As a bus operator, this is the moment I pop my parking brake and open the doors. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This would Definitely Happen Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Energy sword arm man cuts through the floor of the articulating section. Also wears sensible boots for working on a bus! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This cuts through an air hose under the bus! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Our bus operator, played by Michael-Anthony Taylor, discovers his service brake isn't working. He's mashing on the treadle (pedal) and not stopping. That's terrible! And he's wearing earphones. That's terrible. He definitely could be charged with an avoidable incident by SFT. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc He should be reaching for the Parking and Emergency Brake on his left control panel: Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Cap number 8964 would be a part time operator at muni, but SFT might have a different scheme? Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Now we are heading west on California at Mason St, and this is a serious hill. There could very well be cable cars in the way. Not to mention this has been a 40 minute bus ride from 21st and Noe, minimum. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Quick digression on how Air Brakes work. Energy sword arm man cut the brake lines, which would let all the air out of the system. When this happens, a backup, mechanical brake called the Spring Brake activates. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc The spring brake held open by air pressure. If there is no pressure, the brake is applied, and the wheels will not turn. Air brakes have a warning, that is audible as a very loud, continuous buzzer, whenever the air pressure drops below a certain threshold. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc A bus operator will stop the bus when this low air pressure warning goes off, because if the air brakes keep loosing pressure, the spring brakes WILL activate, and the bus is going to stop very very suddenly. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Bus operators don't want to stop very hard because that's how you get Falls On Board. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc When bus operators want to know what's going on inside our passenger area, we look in the mirror up top, not over our shoulder Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This helps us keep our attention on steering the bus, to avoid cars that will definitely make illegal left turns in front of us all day every day. Powell and California. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc OUCH Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Operator wasn't even wearing his seat belt! Workmans Comp not going to cover this. Also: Fall on Board. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is top quality bus driving. Also get the line "Every time I try to drive a bus I get yelled at" which a) lol and b) that's just being a bus operator. We get yelled at whenever we try to drive a bus too. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I'm going to take this part by part. First of all, I want to get into the operators seat this easily just once in my entire life. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This space isn't empty, there's a big compartment with computers and electronics in there. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Operators lunch! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Seat Belt, should have been fastened! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is the parking and emergency brake. This is what the operator should have pulled way back when Shang-chi threw the first punch. If you are ever in a situation where you are unexpectedly in a run away bus and need to stop it, this yellow handle is the thing to grab. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Some operators really do sit with the seat all the way down and the wheel up and forward, but I find this very uncomfortable, like driving with your chin. When a bus operator takes over a bus, they immediately start by adjusting the seat to their preference. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Shang-Chi knows how to check on the passengers! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Every bus has a fire extinguisher, and we check every day before we pull out of the yard. It is intended for exactly these situations. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Every bus operator cheers when the scooters get mashed to shreds. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I think this is more or less how an articulated section would react. I don't actually operate articulated motor coaches, so IDK Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is Stockton at Bush, on top of the Stockton Street Tunnel. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I have no idea if this is what's down there. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc The rear view mirrors are bus operators best friends. We cannot safely turn the bus if they aren't adjusted properly. I would take a moment to check and make sure they are how I like them after this. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is how everyone asks to be let into the bus when we aren't at a stop. Too real. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I'm impressed that she knew how to operate the door lever. When the doors are open, an interlock activates that prevents the bus from moving. This would also have been an option to try for an out of control bus. Also, that's where you keep your coffee canteen, true facts. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc DON'T LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER WHILE DRIVING! The hazards are ahead of you. Aim High in Steering, everyone. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Now we are heading into the Stockton Street tunnel. This is MC Escher's Hill, apparently. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I Laughed. So. Hard. at the stop request gag. Saw it coming from miles away OMG. On Muni, someone would absolutely have used this within 20 seconds of the start of the fight. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc We are finally coming to a stop at Larkin and North Point. Quite a ways to warp from Union Square IMO. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is the look I give passengers when I stopped too far from the curb. Good bus stops are hard. I hope you enjoyed my thread as much as I enjoyed this scene. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Unfortunately I think this guy isn't going to keep his job as a bus operator, though. I'm glad he's ok, that was a nasty knock he took. Let's hope he lands on his feet. Maybe he'll drive charters? Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I need to add a coda to this thread. First of all, amazing to see it get so much attention. I did not expect this. I guess this is where I make a soundcloud plug? Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc But really I just want you to support public transport by riding the bus more and driving a personal car less. Support policies that fund public transport, and support policies that prioritize people over parking spots. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc And thank your operator when you get off the bus. Every "Thank you" makes our day on the road a little better. I'm still a rookie operator, new to the job, but it make a difference to me. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Also mad props to all the talented people involved in bringing this scene to the screen: @SimuLiu and @awkwafina and Michael-Anthony Taylor and @big9nasty (energy sword arm man, or razorfist, I learned) Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Brad Allan and Andy Cheng, choreographers for the scene, and the stunt performers, and the stunt driver (Kial Butler, Andrea Berchtold, and Cameron Ambridge have stunt driver credits in the film) Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc And also the special effects teams that put in I am sure untold hours to bring this scene to life. Huge congratulations and thanks to those who brought us this entertainment. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc And THANK YOU each and every one for riding Muni.

The TSA is preparing for a busy Thanksgiving travel period -- with travel volumes expected to reach 2019 pre-pandemic levels. The agency said it expects the Sunday after Thanksgiving to be the busiest travel day of the year -- with an estimated 2.4M passengers on 11/28. It expects 2-2.1M passengers on the following days through the 29th. TSA said it's "confident" and it has the staffing needed to manage the holiday travel crush. United Airlines CEO, Scott Kirby for one says his airline is good to go, not having furloughed any of their employees over the past 18 months or so and he boasted that "100% of our customer facing employees now are fully vaccinated." As for when you get to where you're going, you might want to make sure a family member can pick you up at the airport: According to Kayak, the average cost per day of a rental car is up 75% compared to 2019, and up 66% compared to 2020. Searches for rental cars are up 230% compared to 2019, the site said. Orlando, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Phoenix are among some of the most popular destinations for car rentals according to Kayak, with cities in New York, Texas and South Carolina among the most expensive (some of the cheapest places to rent a car are Honolulu, San Francisco and Cincinnati).

On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick details a busy weekend that was for the San Francisco Giants. Sunday was a day of forced action, as qualifying offer and option decisions had to be made. The Giants exercised their options for Wilmer Flores ($3.5M) and José Álvarez ($1.5M), and officially declined their $22M option for Johnny Cueto, in favor of a $5M buyout. Flores and Álvarez were strong contributors for the Giants in 2021, and it's good news for the team that they'll be back next year, both in the final year of their deals with San Francisco. Cueto is officially a free agent after six mostly underwhelming years with the Giants. His first season in orange and black was spectacular, but he wasn't able to come anywhere close to it again over the final five. The Giants extended a one-year, $18.4M qualifying offer to Brandon Belt. There was some possibility that they might extend qualifying offers to Anthony DeSclafani and/or Alex Wood, but both were unlikely and the team ultimately elected to pass. This doesn't mean that they won't be back; just that they didn't extend them qualifying offers. Belt will have 10 days to accept or reject the Giants' offer. If he signs with another team this offseason, the Giants will receive Draft Pick compensation. Belt is a candidate to accept the offer, but he could also work out an extension to stay in San Francisco. Finally, Ben discusses Brandon Crawford winning his fourth career Gold Glove Award. He was spectacular defensively in 2021, which is a testament to his own hard work and the influence of Kai Correa and Ron Wotus. The Giants' new coaching staff has done a tremendous job getting the most out of players since taking over in 2020, and that includes Correa and his influence over the defense. Crawford, Belt, and Buster Posey were all at or near their best in 2021 despite being in their mid-30s. Ben reminds listeners of how significant of a loss it was when hitting coach Donnie Ecker accepted a position as bench coach and offensive coordinator with the Texas Rangers last week. Mike Yastrzemski was a Gold Glove finalist in right field, but he did not win the award. Still, it's an honor just for Yaz to have been named a finalist.

On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick details the key dates and deadlines for the San Francisco Giants' 2021-22 offseason. Things kick off with a five-day window during which time teams and players must make decisions on options and opt-outs, and teams must decide who among their eligible players to tag with the qualifying offer. The Giants hold club options over Buster Posey, Johnny Cueto, Wilmer Flores, and José Álvarez, and Ben expects the Giants to pick up the options for all but Cueto. Posey is a possible extension candidate, and there is a possibility he could choose to retire. The club also must decide whether to tag Brandon Belt, Anthony DeSclafani, and Alex Wood (the only three realistic candidates) with the one-year, $18.4M qualifying offer. Once the deadline for all of that activity passes on Sunday, free agency officially kicks off on Monday, Nov. 8. Ten days from Nov. 7, players must decide whether to accept or reject teams' qualifying offers. Two days later, on Nov. 19, teams must add eligible players to their 40-man roster if they want to protect them from selection in the Rule 5 Draft, which is scheduled to take place in early December. The Giants have several of their better prospects eligible for selection, including Heliot Ramos, Sean Hjelle, and Seth Corry. The biggest deadline of all comes on Dec. 1 at 11:59 PM Eastern, when the current Collective Bargaining Agreement is set to expire. If MLB and the MLBPA don't reach an agreement on a new CBA by that time, the league may institute a lockout and a transactions freeze. All major-league dates and deadlines thereafter could be put on hold until a new CBA agreement is reached. That would affect the tender deadline, free agency, trades, and the Winter Meetings.

Today, we continue the conversation with a man who is full of SHIT! Don't get mad at me Mom for swearing, Mark Balla is actually the “Toilet Warrior” and has been advocating and changing the story about sanitation worldwide.In 2013, he founded the not-for-profit “We can't wait”. He then joined forces with Rotary and began using his business connections to Mumbai to change the reality for girls in that region and then the country as a whole. Did you know that of the 1.4M schools in India, 400,000 of them do NOT have toilets? And the schools that do have toilets, do not have separate ones for girls. So, why does this matter so much? 25% of girls in India drop out and skip school when they reach puberty. When their menstruation begins, its just too much to go to school and be humiliated.Many of these girls homes also do NOT have toilets so after holding their bodily functions in all day, their desperate attempts to go to the bathroom results in 50% of sexual assaults occurring while these innocent girls are seeking a quiet place to do so.If you want to dive deeper into this reality that's happening right now before our eyes, read Mark's book the Toilet Warrior or google his TedX talk to be enthralled.As sanitation goals worldwide continued to not be met; this linguist and global supply-chain expert from Melbourne took it on. Thanks to Mark, he is proving the truth of his own TedX quote, that “Children are the most spectacular agents for LASTING change”! The Goods on Mark:* Accomplished public speaker on humanitarian issues both in Australia and internationally, ready to change your perception of the world we live in* Founder of a charity with an international focus on improving life opportunity for girls and women in developing countries* A deep passion for opportunities in corporate social responsibility* Board level experience in both for profit and not for profit environments in both Australia, India and Globally* Committed advocate for global causes that matter* Fluent in German, Spanish and Portuguese, conversant in French* Inter-cultural business specialist* Extensive experience outsourcing to China, India and SE Asia* 15 years experienced in manufacturing, and supply chain management in China.* Five years experience with manufacturing supply chains in India.* Five years experienced with IT supply chain and IT project management in India and Sri Lanka* Knowledge of supply chain processes in Brazil. * Five years of general business experience in Germany.

On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick discusses the San Francisco Giants' upcoming offseason. He talks about the key players set to reach free agency, and the critical decisions the Giants will have to make. The first order of business is Buster Posey, who has a $22M club option for 2022 (with a $3M buyout). Posey has said that he wants to take some time with his wife to discuss his future, so it remains to be seen if he's 100 percent committed to playing next year and beyond. Brandon Belt is set to reach free agency, as is the Giants' entire starting rotation besides Logan Webb. Kevin Gausman, Anthony DeSclafani, and Alex Wood are all impending free agents, and Johnny Cueto has a way-too-expensive $22M club option that will be declined with a $5M buyout. Brandon Belt will likely be offered the $18.4M qualifying offer. Kris Bryant is set to reach free agency. Players who will be back because they're still under club control include Webb, LaMonte Wade Jr., Evan Longoria, Brandon Crawford, Tommy La Stella, Jake McGee, Darin Ruf, and Mike Yastrzemski, among others.

How does Chris evaluate his own relationship to money and wealth? Why did Chris and Crystal interview some of the wealthiest people? What did they learn from those discussions?

What does it mean for Chris to bring up healthy and happy children? Why does Chris believe today's parenting has bred a generation of asshole kids? In what way is great parenting aligned to great team management? How does Chris give feedback to his teams vs his children? What tone should be used? Should it always be "radical candor"?

What have been some of the biggest lessons for Chris from sitting on boards and working with Bill Gurley? Why does Chris believe that most VCs are shitty managers? 5.) Why did Chris decide to come back from retirement and found Lowercarbon with Crystal? Why did he not decide to do it all with his own money? Why is now different for climate tech than prior generations of climate tech innovation? How big does Chris want to scale Lowercarbon? Will Chris make more money from climate investing than from tech?

In September, there were still about 17.6M tax returns awaiting processing. Not to mention, the IRS anticipates receiving over 4M more returns in October. The delay has resulted in a lot of frustrated taxpayers, especially those grappling with error notices and being charged penalties and interest for alleged mistakes. Those penalties add up. For the fiscal year 2020, the IRS assessed nearly 31.4B in civil penalties. But are those penalties fair? Are there claims or defenses that can get taxpayers out of those penalties? There's a lot that can go wrong while filing a tax return because the tax code is so huge and increasingly complicated. How can taxpayers seek accessible tax advice, and even defend tax penalty notices if necessary? On today's episode of the Taxgirl podcast, Kelly is joined by Andrew Gradman to chat about the general scope of tax penalties and what taxpayers can do about them, both proactively and retroactively. Andrew is a tax lawyer in Los Angeles specialising in transactional matters. He's the principal at the Law Office of Andrew L. Gradman. He received his BA from Stanford University, his JD from Columbia University, and his Tax LLM and Business Certificate from NYU. He is admitted to the bar in California and Nevada. Listen to Kelly and Andrew talk about tax penalties: One of the tax penalties that taxpayers are likely most familiar with is IRC 6662, which is an accuracy related penalty. Andrew explains what the details mean and why it exists in the first place. He says, “Penalties are the heart of the tax law.” There's no intent required to be faced with a tax penalty like IRC 6662, which are sometimes referred to as “strict liability penalties.” Why is that rule in place, and how can taxpayers stay on top of these standards? It all comes down to reasonable cause and good faith. Whereas the big problems are negligence and disregard of rules and regulations. How does negligence apply to taxes? What counts as negligent tax behavior? What are some examples of tax negligence? Andrew explains in plain English that in general, negligence is “a failure to make a reasonable attempt to meet the Internal Revenue laws.” It can also include failure to keep adequate books and records. If a taxpayer receives a notice for a tax penalty, what can be done about it? If an individual feels the notice isn't “fair,” what options are available to them? Many penalties can be defeated by “reasonable cause” and “good faith,” though there are still some strict liability penalties that are more difficult to combat. Since the FAQ section of the IRS website is notoriously not to be taken as a binding authority, how can taxpayers reasonably inform and arm themselves against tax penalties? How can taxpayers prove reasonable cause and good faith in defense of tax penalties? What resources are available during the process? What does “substantial authority” mean in tax law? When there is a mistake when filing, who's responsible? Is it the individual, is it the preparer? What happens next? Andrew says it depends on contracts, courtesy, and (unfortunately sometimes) malpractice. Sometimes clients don't know that relevant and important information is, in fact, relevant and important when it comes to their tax return, which can lead to an error or penalty down the road. Plus, bad tax advice has never been more abundant than it is now in the age of TikTok and viral media. What is Andrew's advice for finding good and accessible tax advice? When people have access to a tax professional, how candid can they be? What information is necessary to disclose, including bad information or advice they may have heard? It can feel overwhelming to receive a tax penalty notice. Staying informed and having tax professionals in your corner will give you the tools and empowerment to take a breath and solve the problem.

Chris Sacca is the Founder and Chairman @ Lowercase Capital, one of the best performing funds in the history of venture capital with a portfolio including Uber, Stripe, Twitter, Instagram, Twilio, Docker and many more. Despite this incredible success, in 2017, Chris and his wife, Crystal announced they would be stepping back from day to day investing to focus on ongoing efforts to rescue our democracy, heal the planet, promote diversity within venture capital. Earlier this year, they announced Lowercarbon Capital, with $800M AUM, with the mission to back companies that make real money slashing CO2 emissions, and buying us time to unf**k the planet. Fun fact: As a result of his incredible investing success Chris has also been a Shark on Shark Tank and even starred in an episode of Billions. In Today's Episode with Chris Sacca You Will Learn: 1.) How Chris made his way into the world of investing having started life as a lawyer? What was his first investment? How did the first Twitter $25K angel check come about? 2.) How does Chris evaluate his own relationship to money and wealth? Why did Chris and Crystal interview some of the wealthiest people? What did they learn from those discussions? How does Chris view the role of luck? Why was it when Chris lacked optimism he lost the most money? How did being $4M in the hole from public markets impact his mindset? 3.) What does it mean for Chris to bring up healthy and happy children? Why does Chris believe today's parenting has bred a generation of asshole kids? In what way is great parenting aligned to great team management? How does Chris give feedback to his teams vs his children? What tone should be used? Should it always be "radical candor"? Should it be immediate? 4.) Does Chris believe that VCs really add any value? What does Chris believe is his secret sauce? Why does Chris believe that as a VC you have to be outspoken and loud about the value you provide? What have been some of the biggest lessons for Chris from sitting on boards and working with Bill Gurley? Why does Chris believe that most VCs are shitty managers? 5.) Why did Chris decide to come back from retirement and found Lowercarbon with Crystal? Why did he not decide to do it all with his own money? Why is now different for climate tech than prior generations of climate tech innovation? How big does Chris want to scale Lowercarbon? Will Chris make more money from climate investing than from tech?

After everything that the pandemic has brought, who would have guessed we'd be dealing with this next pandemic outcome: The Great Resignation? Tiffany Keesey, Co-founder of Conscious Culture, joins Justin Wheeler, Funraise CEO and Co-founder, on the Nonstop Nonprofit podcast with emergency advice to keep your organization from being plagued by this latest crisis.If you haven't heard the term, The Great Resignation refers to the 4M people quitting their jobs each month in the U.S. since April 2021. There are a lot of reasons so many people are exiting, but one that crops up a lot is company culture.Tiffany puts it perfectly when she says that perks and policies are not enough to create real change. Justin's a little more blunt, though: "No one's gonna stay for ping pong if they've got a toxic boss." The message here is that you can't plop down a keg and a foosball table and call it culture.But if it's not happy hour and dogs in the office, what is company culture? Listen in as Tiffany reveals how to tap into your real company culture experts, offers examples of great employer brands, and explains how to stand out in this highly competitive hiring market—especially if you're a smaller nonprofit.And if you're hiring right now, you're in luck!

In 2008/2009, I obsessively studied for and passed the two hardest bar exams in the country- New York and California. That brutal year of tests, combined with the stress of extremely high stakes litigation and the ups and downs of life, exacerbated an existing eating disorder to the point where I knew I needed help. Life coach Mike Bayer was the one who I reached out to to help me find treatment. Fast forward to 2021, Coach Mike and I have both evolved a lot! It was so great to catch up with Mike and reflect on how things were back then, his rising stardom and success (2x NY Times bestselling author, a Dr. Phil regular, recovery expert and Tik Tok star), and all things law, life, victimhood and so much more. Check out this episode to hear about all this, and how he got over 4M likes on Tik Tok by giving out advice while wearing Speedos.Support the show (http://lawflip.com)
