#128 Brian Roisentul from BSR Digital: Brand Marketing Strategies Using Third-Party Data Hello Budai Nation, Today we're welcoming Brian Roisentul, CEO and founder of BSR Digital, a social media marketing agency specializing in paid ads on Facebook, Instagram, and Google Ads. The successful agency is managing over $3.6M/year worth of ads for different e-commerce brands. Besides his position as CEO, he's also the host of the Fit Growth Machine podcast which treats customer acquisition strategies for e-commerce brands. Brian will share with us his success story and journey in the world of social media marketing, but also some pretty valuable strategies for e-commerce brands to scale their businesses quickly and more effectively. Welcome to The Ecom Show! Your go-to weekly e-commerce podcast for uncovering new stories, strategies, secrets, and everything e-commerce. This podcast is sponsored by Budai Media, a retention marketing agency that's helped 125+ e-commerce businesses generate over $35M+ in additional sales revenue. Join Daniel Budai (our host and the founder of Budai Media) and Brian Roisentul in this episode to learn more about: ✅ Brian's Success Story in the Digital World ✅ Marketing Strategies for Fashion and Apparel Brands ✅ The Use of Third-Party Data to Scale Your Online Business Let's jump right in. Brian's Success Story in the Digital World Brian comes from a background in computer science. He used to work as a software developer for a software factory, based in the US. During the 2008 recession, they closed their doors, like many other companies in the USA back then, which lead him, along with other partners, to start a brand new venture, with which he will keep working in software development, until 2010. He then started his first solo Software Factory to raise its capital shortly after, evolving into a startup with 40 collaborators. A few months of existence later came the “boom” of social media, when everyone was looking to grow their organic prospects online, trading trucks, cars, and all the crazy stuff for fans and followers. That's when Brian decided to surf the digital marketing wave and offer viable solutions to their clients, generating leads and sales through social media, shifting from software engineering to leading a pure social media marketing agency, specializing in scaling e-commerce brands in a specific industry he loves: Fashion and Apparel. Marketing Strategies for Fashion and Apparel Brands Brian Roisentul, through his own personal experience, breaks down the process of going from the product idea to the end customer into 3 simple, yet very complex phases:

We're thrilled to present our latest Private Market Insights Spaces, where we're going to talk about the critical months following a business acquisition with Justin Vogt, an SMB Twitter regular, and someone who recently acquired a business and has gone through this phase. The first 100 days after an acquisition are extremely important to achieving the deal thesis a buyer set out with. It's a time of expectation setting and of relationship building. Every buyer should go into this time with a plan concerning each functional area of the business – HR, finance, sales, operations etc. We invited Justin to share his story of acquiring AVUITY and what were some of the learnings, both do-s and don'ts, from the first 100 days after closing on the deal. About our guest: Justin lives in Austin, Texas where he manages investment activities for Evermore Industries as well as serves on the Board of Directors at AVUITY. Evermore Industries is his holding company that partners with business owners to help them establish a plan for the next generation of their business. AVUITY uses hardware (sensors) and software to measure and help improve real estate utilization (mostly office space today). The business is based in Cincinnati, Ohio and was acquired by Evermore Industries in the spring of 2022. Before starting Evermore, Justin was an investor with Bain Capital Credit. Justin is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

He previously worked as a Principal at Bain & Company and holds a MA in Strategy and International Management from HSG. ASMALLWORLD was founded in 2004 by a wealthy Swedish couple, and started out as an invitation-only club for their friends. Changes in ownership over the years altered some aspects of the product, but in spite of this, and despite the product's success, the team could not find a successful way of monetizing it, so investment began to wane. Jan Luescher stepped in as an external CEO back in 2016 and has been steering the ship ever since. It isn't ideal for ASMALLWORLD to grow a lot in terms of membership numbers, since exclusivity is part of the package deal (for which users annually pay CHF 100), so they've chosen to do so through creating a booking service on their website, in partnership with a number of luxury hotels. Their goal is to ultimately be able to offer a fremium model (especially also considering that, even among those with disposable income, willingness to pay for a social media service is quite low), but for that they need to offer services to their users, so that the revenue coming from this will help support the non-paying users. They're also aiming to improve the technical aspects of their social media functionality and their booking service. ASMALLWORLD has bought a 10% stake in Global Hotel Alliance, a loyalty program for independent hotels, which has in turn bought 3% of ASMALLWORLD. The goal is to offer Global Hotel Alliance members a free ASMALLWORLD membership as part of the status benefits. Memorable Quotes: "The risk of entrepreneurship always seemed scary to me. It took me a while to take on the ASMALLWORLD project." "When ASMALLWORLD was publicly listed, the financial press in Switzerland thought the world was going to end."

The Resilient Recruiter
How to Become the Leading Recruiter in Your Market Niche, with Brooke Ziolo, Ep #145

The Resilient Recruiter

Imagine if you were a dominant recruiter in your industry with a portfolio of clients who come to you for all their hiring needs.  That doesn't happen overnight and requires persistence. As you'll hear in my interview with Brooke Ziolo, it's certainly achievable with the right mindset and methodology. Brooke is the President of Egret Consulting, and has been an Executive Recruiter for 14 years. She and her team have become the Go-To recruiters for the lighting industry covering positions in sales, marketing, engineering, and operations from mid-level to C-Suite.   In this episode, she shares how they became the market leading recruiters within the lighting industry.  She describes in detail how they reach out to clients and candidates with a blend of manual and automated processes plus an attitude of polite and professional persistence.  Brooke's history of how and when she started her recruiting career is a resounding story of resilience, leading to her becoming a Partner of Egret in 2013, the Managing Director in 2016, and purchasing the firm in 2019. She was inducted into the Pinnacle Society, the premier consortium of industry-leading recruiters in North America, in 2016. Episode Outline and Highlights [01:56] Brooke's challenging first year in recruiting. [06:05] Brooke's mindset and method for building her desk during a recession.  [11:11] What has changed in Egret's approach to marketing over the past 14 years?  [20:20] Would you consider reaching out via cold text? Discussion on combining videos and text when reaching out. [25:04] Brooke's recipe for success - from being a recruiter, a partner, and the decision of becoming a recruitment firm owner.  [39:38] Brooke's vision on taking the Egret company forward. [41:42] Retaining employee engagement while shifting to a fully remote setup. Starting Her Recruitment Career During the 2008 Recession Brooke started her recruitment career in 2008, during the Great Recession. As you can imagine, it was extremely challenging. She only made 2 placements that whole year! But Brooke's mindset and strategy during that turbulent time lead to her being successful when people started hiring again.  Reminiscing her early days, Brook explained, “The only thing I control is how many calls I make. So if I keep making more calls than everybody in the office… that is all I can do right now. I kept just pounding the phones until somebody told me no or I am sick of you.” For Brooke, it is all about her polite persistence. She understood the balance of not harassing anyone but staying within professional boundaries to put her name out there even if she was not making many placements. The result? People remembered her! Making all those phone calls enabled her to build her network of industry connections so people thought of her when they started hiring again. Blended Approach to Marketing and Business Development Cold calling and polite persistence laid the foundation for Brooke to become a top-producing recruiter and billing manager. But how has her approach to business development and marketing evolved over the last 14 years? Here are some of the strategies she shared in this episode: MPC Marketing Monthly Newsletter LinkedIn outreach Advertising in the trade publication for her industry Text messaging We also shared tips and ways on cold text messaging. Many recruiters are afraid of sending unsolicited text messages and are concerned about receiving a negative reaction from the recipient. On the other hand, texting is a very effective way to communicate and typically gets a much faster response compared to other platforms such as email. Brooke shared how she does it and how much response she gets in doing so. Brooke's Success Mindset In 2019, Brooke purchased the firm from her father who was the founder of Egrit Consulting. Acquiring the business wasn't something she had initially set out to accomplish. But after falling in love with recruitment and becoming a top recruiter in the firm, she started being able to imagine the possibility of taking over the business.   I asked Brooke's recipe for success. In addition to her persistence and also being niche-focused, she shared three keys: : Positive self-talk and affirmation Taking her time and putting one foot in front of the other Learning from past experience I have always aimed to understand recruitment owners' formulas for success. And Brooke certainly delivered in this episode. Our Sponsors This podcast is proudly sponsored by i-intro and Recruitment Entrepreneur. i-intro® is an end-to-end retained recruitment platform.

Brandon decided to open a restaurant before he graduated in 2000, so he started working in them and found himself a mentor. In 2003, when Brandon and his then-business partner were only 23, the first Walk-On's location opened in Baton Rouge.

He has watched entrepreneurs trying to fund a business acquisition or real estate of any type go to a local bank. But his experience says otherwise. That is why his company, Vantage Point Commercial Capital, provides alternative sources and acts like a “funding concierge,” partnering with the business owner / investor / professional to help understand what they are trying to accomplish, both short term and long-term, and helps them make the right choice. One major advice he tries to coach business owners on is to acquire the real estate where their business is located. This helps them invest in themselves, rather than paying a landlord. Join Paul Neal and Host Dan Lesniak as they discuss… ∙ Helping business owners acquire the real estate where their business is located. ∙ How business owners can acquire real estate with 5 to 15% down payment, or sometimes less. ∙ How owning your own commercial space brings tax advantages and defers other costs  ∙ Why getting a mentor is the best way to avoid mine fields.

Danielle LaPorte is back on the show this week, having experienced a (failed) cancellation attempt and living to tell the world of her learnings from it. The truth is, as much as the cult-like mentality wants to paint things as black and white, they almost never are.  In this one, Danielle distinguishes between the hard truths and hypocritical falsehoods that made themselves clear during the process – and where she acknowledges gray areas in between. As a global thought leader on spiritualism and personal evolution, there's no one better to break down this toxic new appendage on modern society. The topic brings us, inevitably, back to the cycle of trauma and healing, which unearths another deeply personal story I had yet to share on the podcast before today.

Don, welcome to the show. Hey pleasure. [00:00:43] Don Wenner: Thanks for having me on today. [00:00:45] Sam Wilson: Hey man. Absolutely. The pleasure's mine. There are three questions. Don ask. Every ghost comes to the show in 90 seconds or less, tell me, where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there? [00:00:53] Don Wenner: Great question. So I started in Beth in Pennsylvania to , two young parents who had me at 16 years old. I moved out of their home at 17 years old and went out on my own as a junior in high school. So humble beginnings. Mom ran a home daycare, six kids in my home. Plus my three younger siblings at all times. My dad ran a prison, was a prison guard. So those were the. Today we have 300 plus corporate team members, 3.4 billion capital under management. We've impacted hundreds of thousands of lives owned tens of thousands of units. We're a large lender and equity partner to other operators as well, grown 60 plus percent a year, every year for 16, straight years, 10 years in a row is one of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in America. Fourth last year out of any companies that made the list five times, we on list 10 straight years, we built a really. Consistent way of consistent growth which is centered around discipline and really great people. So that's where we're at [00:01:43] Sam Wilson: today, man. I love that. So you said you moved out when you were 17 years old and went out on your own. What was your next step? How did you get involved in real estate? I'm gonna ask you a whole bunch of questions here. Yeah, I got it. How did you develop yourself? I mean, as a person, cuz there's a mindset shift that has to happen. When you grow up in a working class run, and again, there's no, no problem with it. I'm not, I grew up very, not even blue collar. We grew up they're poor. Yeah. But there's a mindset shift that has to happen when you go from humble beginnings to, Hey, now we're running a billion dollar company. How did it happen? [00:02:19] Don Wenner: It's a big question. I'm gonna try to keep it tight. But so, the, so my dad told him my wedding he gave a speech at my wedding when he knew I was an entrepreneur and it was when I was in kindergarten and he got a call from the school because I was selling little brown hostess donuts to my classmates for 50 cents a piece. Right. Right. And yeah. And so that, that continued all through my childhood. I mean, in middle school, I. I didn't cut lawns. I ran a lawn care business. I hired my friends. I had marketing and distributions signed up lots of homes. So I just had this entrepreneurial desire at an early age. And my parents were the people who thought about everything is how do I save a penny instead of how do I make a dollar? Right. And it was scraping and claw. And I used to always find myself thinking. Why don't you just work more, right? Why don't you do something else? Why don't you do something more? Right. And so, I don't know what instilled that at an early age. I have a father of three young boys now and so I, I spent a lot of time teaching them and focusing around two big things with them. Grit. And growth mindset. And I think those are things that can be teach te taught and improved upon. But I was blessed that I was kind of born with a growth mindset, a mindset that, Hey, if I'm willing to work hard enough and learn and ask questions, I can do anything. Right. So when I was in middle school, a financial advisor came in. Let's tell you kind of how tell you guys got into real estate. Financial advisor came in, he showed this little chart. On his little chart he showed that financial advisors made more money than doctors, lawyers, accountants, all the jobs your parents tell you to become. Right. And as an eighth grader, when this happened, the, what I took from his presentation, I don't know if this is what he actually said, but this is what I remember was that to be great. As a financial advisor, you have to be really entrepreneurial self starter and you have to be great at. And I was like, well, that's me. Right. I was, perfect S a T score math. It was great, great math and I'm very entrepreneur, right? And I'm like, well, that's for me. Right. So I started shadowing financial advisors in middle school and high school. And I always knew that was what I was gonna do, but I like every other kid, I was told I had to go to college. And so I moved outta my parents' house as a junior high school waited tables to get through high school I'd work, swing shifts, I'd skip school, kind of midday work, swing shifts, get through. But I, still had the determination I needed to go to college fortunate due to. Grades and N a T scores and such. I got nearly a full ride to Drexel university in Philadelphia. And they have the best co-op program in the country. You go to school half the time and school half the time I did, 'em both at the same time but it's a really cool program where they set up these internships. I got to work at BlackRock. I had to work at Merrill Lynch at MC glad Poland, which is fifth biggest accounting firm in the country. Cause I was studying finance. And so I got all these cool experiences, but I already, I got my, my, all my licenses, the day I turned 18 and I could. For insurance and series six, I think 65. And anyway, so I . Knew what I was gonna do. Until, and I kept waiting tables on the weekends and this guy came into the restaurant, worked that I was 19 years old and he kept asking me to come work for him. And he wanted me to come work for him because if you ever worked at a restaurant, the least restaurants I'd work in, this was a Texas Roadhouse at the time. They'd say, Hey, whoever sells the most flaming Yas tonight makes 50 bucks or whatever. Right. So. Everybody was eating flam on that night. Right. So, so he kind of, he was a sales guy. He realized that I was, I had I had some basic sales skills, nothing great. Right. But at least I, had a little bit of persuasion. So, he convinced me to come work for him. Didn't really understand what it was. He told me it was security. It turned out it was ADT security. So my job consisted of. Knocking on people's doors. And I became the number one sales rep in the country for ADT at 19 years old, 150,000 reps. All that tells you is I knocked on a whole lot of doors. And a lot of doors, I got a little better as I went going, but I knocked on a lot of doors and he convinced me to come work for me, him by telling me I would make $2,000 a week. If I came to work. 19. That sounded pretty darn good. My first paycheck was $5,280, and then I was making six to eight grand every two weeks from there. And so I think I'm, I'm doing so great. I'm making all this money. I'm still in college. I'm still, got my plan. And one day I'm sitting at his kitchen table. And he's cuts me my check for the two weeks, whatever it was, 6,000 bucks or something. And I see on the other side of the table, a check for $17,000 a check for $20,000, I'm like, what's that about? And he says, that's my real estate business. So in addition, his name's Nathan Robinson addition to owning this security company, he was a real estate agent. And he, that, that night, he basically convinced me that if I wanted to get into real estate, I would do great at it. And I basically gave up sleep for about three weeks. Took my classes online. Took the exam flew out to Scottsdale Arizona. The day I passed my exam went to a marketing conference, came away from that conference with a marketing message of your home sold, guaranteed, or I'll buy it. And that was October, 2006, the peak of the real estate market. So my marketing message was at a good time. People were motivated to sell and I'd either help, 'em sell their home or I'd step in and buy it. And that was never the plan. But so I started doing and flipping their home and then, that built into all the things we do to this day. So complete mistake per se, but fell in love. Second, I got into the business and kind of never [00:06:55] Sam Wilson: turned back. Man. That's really cool. I love that. I love that. All of that story is fun. I wish we had more time to hear some of the nuance to it cuz that in stories like that. You just go man, like that's really cool. And it just shows the hustle and the grit, that it takes, I think that was the, was that the word you used earlier was grit. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. So just, it just shows the, what it takes and that, that grid is so much of that. You've written a book called building an elite organiz. All right. I'm out here doing it to, and I know you kind of hit alluded to this early on. When you said you, you started lawn care company, you got, you were out hiring other kids to come work for you and cut grass, but there's still a shift from that to building a elite organization, bringing in right team members and effectively scaling your company. How did you learn how to do that. . [00:07:41] Don Wenner: Yeah. That's a great question. So, I was not afraid ever to hire I don't think until you just said that right now, I never connect personally connected the dots between the lawn care side and hiring my friends to, but when I got into real estate I was so busy, I'm in an office of 158 real estate agents, and I'm so busy running around. I realized from, I kind of learned this from the sales trainers, right. From eight to. I gotta be out selling, right. Everything else is a distraction. Right? So three weeks into the business, I hired an agent who wasn't productive in my office to help me part-time she was full-time by the end of the week, I had three assistants working for me by the third month in the business. I wasn't afraid to kind of delegate. And free myself up. And so I did that from early, early beginning. And then what happened was, after a few years of just hustling and I was the main salesperson driving, 90% of the business, I was driving all the strategy. I was, driving the engine forward. And while I'm doing on that, I'm reading a ton. So I had a discipline of reading about three books a week. For the last, 20, 15 plus years, I mainly do it on audible. But I read a lot and listen to lots of people. And then what was cool when I entered real estate, I realized, Hey, there's 1.2 million real estate agents doing the same job. Right? There's a small percentage of doing that job well. So I wanna figure out how to do it. Well, all I have to do is talk to the people doing it well, right. There are people doing well. So I always, took the mindset of, give first and so I. Would go out and reach out to the top real stages in the country and offer them something of value. Something I could teach them, which at the time was how to sell real estate on Craigslist for free. And they would let me come talk to 'em and I'd show up there with eight pages of questions. They want me to come show 'em this Craigslist, gimmick or trick, right. Which I was selling a lot of homes for free on Craigslist. And I'd come with eight pages of questions, right. And ask lots and lots of questions. And within, a number of months, people are inviting me into. Inner circles, these, mastermind groups. Right. And that's what the project, I took everything. When I wanted to get into investing, I said, well, who out there is slipping homes effectively. Right. And I reach out to 'em call 'em right. Go and talk to 'em. Right. And I've just had that pursuit that if I wanna learn something, the information, this is the information age, right. If you're willing to pursue knowledge it's out there. So, so that's the approach I took. And then, so all the reading, I'm doing all the learning I'm doing, I'm hiring people. What I realized is I felt I had this great understanding of how to grow a business from all the learning and all talking to people. But all the people in my company didn't right. They weren't reading three books a week. They weren't, understanding all this. And so about 11 years ago, maybe now I read book that's on your shelf there traction by my friend, Gina Wickman. I said, wow, this is great. This is the first book that actually kind of pulls it together into a system. And so I immediately became an implementer for genome just self-paced kind of went through his program and implemented it into my organization and it was so incredible that it gave that structure. How to grow business. So I realized really on the importance of, of culture, the importance of hiring great people, importance of developing leadership from listening to all these wonderful grades, like John Maxwell and Jim Collins and so forth, and then reading that system helped put into action. And then for us, what happened was that system wasn't enough. It's a great system to kind of get you going and take you from, a few people maybe to 20, 30, 40 people and get your foundation built. And then for us, it wasn't enough as we really started growing. So we. Took the basics of that. And some ideas from the ver harnesses of the world and the Sean coveys of the world and Jim Collins world. And we kind of built a lot of custom tools and we built our own system, which we call the elite execution system, which is what I wrote a book on called building elite organization that we run today, built a technology on and teach to other developers and operators, help them implement and run their business on it. Today, what do [00:10:56] Sam Wilson: you feel like have been some of the greatest challenges that you've overcome inside of your own organization? [00:11:03] Don Wenner: So there's only one real challenge. At the end of the day, in my opinion all challenges all revert back to one singular issue at the end of the day, which is leadership. Every problem you have in your organization comes down to leadership. So everything that we've ever had that hasn't gone, right, or isn't going right, or we're not executing as well as we want or not getting the results we want or having struggle or challenges always comes down to leadership. Every problem you have is a leadership problem, whether you realize it or not. So that's where I've put, for the last 10 years of my life. Yes, and I'm involved in raising capital and we raise lots of capital, right? I'm involved in doing deals. I'm involved in operations. I drive the engine of a lot of the organization, even though we have 300 plus corporate team members yet with all the things I'm involved in, the number one and number two allocation of my time for the last 10 years have been hiring leaders. And developing leaders. So I spend, well over half my time on out hiring I average six day interviews a week, half for 10 plus years, and I do six to eight one on one meetings with my leaders a week focusing on developing leadership, developing capacity, developing abilities to execute. So that's some level. Dedication and discipline around hiring and developing of leadership right. Is not typical. I find in most CEOs or leaders and but I've realized the importance of, and that's the fundamental reason to how we've been able to have the sustained level of growth we've had through multiple cycles, launching many different business lines, et cetera, and sustain. It has been not, I wouldn't say we've kept up with leadership to the growth organization. We've been close to keeping up, right? So we're always feeling we're fighting to have enough quality leaders and have them at the place of leadership level, to keep up with the goals and direction of the organization. But it's a conscious, focused effort [00:12:42] Sam Wilson: when you say, and remind me, sure, have the right question for this. But when you say developing leaders, meeting with your leaders, obviously, KPIs, things like that are important, but there's a lot of kind of soft skill. In leadership that maybe can't be measured on a spreadsheet, there's interpersonal skills. There's things like you just can't measure it. How are you effectively developing leaders? Like what are things that you say, man, these are things when someone comes into our organization that I really, when I onboard 'em I want them to understand. [00:13:12] Don Wenner: Yeah, it's a wonderful question. And so the best book on leadership that's ever been written in my humble opinion is called the five levels of leadership by John Maxwell. It's a classic, it's the best understanding of leadership. And John Maxwell himself has written a hundred books on leadership. This is the best book. And so the way I think about it is most people. And if you haven't read the book, this won't, I won't go too deep in the, we weeds to people, but. Level three leadership is where most people never achieve, which is to be able to consistently generate and produce results with and through a team. And so I realized that in my organization that I have a lot of people who had leadership titles and some influence because of who they are, and they're great people and encouraging, and great cheerleaders and so forth, but weren't able to consistently generate results. And so I spent, probably a couple years really evaluating. Our leaders internally and externally in terms, what are the things that, that great leaders do? What are those? And you said the kind of soft skills, the things that that, that really make a difference. And so the first thing I backtrack is a quick second that we do is every time we hire a leader or hire any person in the organization we. Clearly identified before we even start searching for the person. But then once we hire them, we identify, we call it the R R E K, which stands for role responsibilities, expectations of key numbers. So every person at DLP knows what the key numbers are, that their response, what the KPIs, as you said, and they know exactly what the expectations are. My belief, especially the people we. But most people wanna win. Right? Most people want to do good. Right. They want to be successful, but a lot of people in most organizations, especially entre organizations don't know what success is. It's never even been measured. So they don't even know what they're aiming for. Because no one's defined what success is for their job. So that's the first place that most organizations, most companies fall down. But once we've identified success or they're not achieving success, they're not achieving their goals. We fear why that is. Right. Is it, hopefully it's not the case, this is a hiring issue. If it's a will issue, right. They're not willing to do the work. Right. But if they have a skill issue, right. An ability issue we've developed over again, a couple years, the 24 consistent practices of highly effective leaders. So some examples of those are, discipline and building habits. So they're struggling with keeping up with the whirlwind, right? They don't have the discipline and structure to their life, let alone their business. Right. Do more than you ask for others, make hard decisions, have difficult conversation. We call alignment being aligned and we have a whole method around that. Listening, speaking simply. And. Coaching teaching follow through buy-in collaboration, emotional fortitude. Those are some of the examples and we actually have people self-assess themselves against those. And we have then their leader assess them across those. And just by categorizing those things that a lot of will be considered soft skills, categorizing them in that way, and then be able to give. Clear feedback. It helps sometimes when you feel like, I don't know how to guide them on what they're doing wrong, right. When I can look at this list of 24 practices, I can see, Hey, you've really been struggling with being able to critically think through an issue and be able to kinda lay out solutions, right. And give guidance on how to get better on that and how to improve and so forth. So, so yeah, it takes a lot of work and time and you have to first care enough to do it. Right. So I always tell people, the key in, in, in building a great organization is investing in your people and you can't fake it. Right. You can't fake it. You generally have to care. And in order to really invest in, in your people and invest in them as a whole. And that's one of the other quick notes that we invest a lot in. So I believe one of our core values is called living fully. And I believe living fully is when you're achieving success and significance across all areas, your life. And we categorize life across eight areas faith, family, friends, freedom, fun, fulfillment, fitness, and finance. We have an assessment process that people can assess themselves and we want to help people. The way I think about it simply is I want, if you worked in my organization, I want you to be a great father, a great husband, a great leader in your church, whatever the things that are important to you as well as certainly being very productive in your work. Right. But those aren't contradict. We call it work life integration. We want people who are successful in achieving their goals in all areas of life. And by investing in people as a whole, every person in our organization has a personal compass. They have a goal to what's their own core values, their mission, their family, B a. What they want accomplished in a hundred years and we help them, achieve their goals and connect what they really wanna get outta life and have fulfillment and so forth. And so, yeah, so there's a couple notes on building leaders. I [00:17:14] Sam Wilson: love that. No, that's absolutely awesome. And I think that's a tough thing to tackle a tough thing as you well know, building, building leaders inside your organization. That's a lot of work and it's a lot of. Planning and probably delayed gratification. I would even imagine as you look at it and go, okay, I'm gonna invest this in you. And then it could be two or three years before we start to see fruit. But yet it is that constant cultivation of both culture and people. I think that has taken you to where you are today. Turn left a little bit in this conversation. You guys are involved in a whole suite of real estate investments. Everything from, I think it was maybe I misunderstood this, but build the rent communities to lending, to direct development of multifamily properties. When you want to take on a new business line or a new asset class, how do you guys strategize around that? Figure out the goal and then bring on the people to do it. What's that process? [00:18:10] Don Wenner: That's a wonderful question. And we have throw this out there. So, one of our domain that has information on the book and a lot of these tools that I'm talking about, including when I'm about to talk of anybody can download for free DLP, elite.com, DLP elite.com. You can download this next tool. And a lot of the other tools I've talked about which we call the elite compass. And so the compass. Is in the term for it sort of intraction they call it VTO. So it's sort of like that but a lot more to it. And so we, we have very clear big pictured organization. What's our big hero goal. What's our purpose, our mission, our core values. Who's our core client. What's our secret weapon as we call it. Clearly understanding who we are. In who we serve. And then we go and we break that down then into what's our three year aim for the organization and what's our one year bullseye. And then we break that down to what we're gonna do in the next 90 days. So we've got this really clear direction of where we're going and it's not just something that I know it or I, senior leaders know the whole organization knows it. We do a vision day every year that we invite all of, not only our employees, but all of our investors, all of our operators to join us, or we lay out exactly where we're heading. So anytime we think about launching a new business line or a new product, we go and we look, we filter it against the compass and we say, Hey, is this in a line with our values, with our purpose, with our mission, with our big heritage goes, this gonna help us get there, or is it gonna be in conflict with where we're going? And then it's often a situation of, Hey, we've got 10 different things we wanna do. If we're gonna add one thing in, what's gonna be the most, advantageous thing to do, what's gonna best fit with being able to serve our clients. And one thing that's helped me as an entrepreneur cause I, I, there's lots of things I wanna do. Right. I have, kind of 12 different business lines today that make up DLP capital. But I have 50 that I liked. 'em right. And so one of the things that's helped me to avoid that is that I don't say no to things I say not now. Right? So I'm not ready to do it now. Cause we only have 24 hours in a day. All my leaders are busy, we're all swamped. And that's the other big thing. When we launch new business line, we don't go and set up a separate set of leadership and no we're gonna use the same marketing department, the same it department, the same legal department, the same HR department, same CFO, the same senior leadership team. Who's gonna oversee this, which is what makes it possible. I have to have separate leadership teams and separate values and separate missions. It's impossible too often. I have entrepreneur real estate entrepreneurs who sit down with those on a day. We do at DLP called compass day, where our members come in and we help them lay out the compass to the organization. I sit down with each of our members for a few hours and help them kinda lay out strategy. And I'll get operators sit down with me and they have 10 employees today and they have seven business lines. They're on property management, they're construction management, and they're doing acquisitions and they're raising capital. They're launching a fund and they're doing that in two markets. And they're telling me in the next year, they're gonna add five more markets. And now they're also gonna self-perform construction. And then they decided they're gonna launch a plumbing company. And oh, by the way, we thinking we're gonna lend some money and they have more businesses than they have employees. Right. . Are you doing any of those businesses? Well now are you actually making any money at any of them? No. Right. Why do you need, all these are big businesses. Why do you need to be in every chain? Right. Don't let your, your back of house, become front of the house. Right. And try to do everything yourself. So, that's kind of how we do it, but it's hard. It's hard as entrepreneurs. [00:21:09] Sam Wilson: That's that's well said, certainly appreciate that. And thanks for taking the time to break down. So many of your thoughts here from leadership to how you guys have built an elite organization systems you've built, I've loved hear in your story from, starting selling, what was it? Ding, dons or donuts, host donuts, hostess, whatever. , yeah, that's a fun story. I love that. That's that's something they shut us down. I think I was in third grade, second grade. You remember those those jolly rancher they to sell in stick forms. Huh? Remember that? Yeah. So that was, I used to sell jolly rancher sticks in the the oatmeal cream pies in second or third grade. And I got the teachers shut us down, but that's that's funny. So I'm glad to hear. Somebody else also was in the uh, but you started much younger than I did so well done. it's loads of fun, Don. Thank you for taking the time to come on the show today. This has been an absolute pleasure having you on. I know you've mentioned a few different websites here and ways that our listeners can get in touch with you or learn more about your organization, but just one last time. So it's always in the same place in the show. What is the best way to [00:22:07] Don Wenner: do that? Yeah. The domain I mentioned earlier, we can get all the free resources DLP elite.com. Our main website is DLP capital.com. You welcome to find me on all social media. I have a podcast called to impact with Don winter. And my email is Don DLP, [00:22:20] Sam Wilson: capital.com.

Right? So we know people want this people get, why aren't you in real invest in real estate. And it's always, I don't have enough capital or it's too risky. Cause they don't know about the market Or it's not liquid.. So we kind of, addressing the biggest challenges that people have when it comes to investing. so are kind of the challenges that we found and how we overcame.  [00:00:35] Sam Wilson: Josh Emerson is a co-founder and CEO of sands bank, an alternative lending and investing platform, connecting multi-unit property owners, seeking capital and average investors seeking asset backed investments. Josh, welcome to the show. Thanks jam. It's great to be here. Hey man, the pleasure's mine. Listen there three questions. I ask every guest who comes in the show a 90 seconds or less. Can you tell me, where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there?  [00:00:58] Joshua Emison: Yep. So I started coming out the Marine Corps, not knowing much about anything. I took, I started a sales business, selling, selling franchises. Took a ton of time to learn about real estate. Learn about blockchain. Then I met some great co-founders who have done stuff like this before. And now we are a early stage tech company. That's pooling together loans in real estate so that anyone can invest in those pools of debt for as little as a hundred bucks  [00:01:28] Sam Wilson: and early stage tech company. And break that down one more time. Just so I don't miss anything here. An early stage comp tech company that invests in. . Yeah, so  [00:01:38] Joshua Emison: we originate loans to multi-family properties. Right? Second lanes that we were kind of talking about before they have to be profitable, right. So we only load to profitable companies or pro businesses or properties. Then we put those all together into a pool. So that way it's diversified and we let people invest in that pool. Right. So for as low as a hundred dollars, there's no lockup period. So we have secondary markets and they can earn passive income every month. Right. So that was really, my goal was to put passive income into everybody's. Now  [00:02:05] Sam Wilson: Are you guys holding these, or you mentioned secondary markets that mean you're selling these off or what how does  [00:02:10] Joshua Emison: that process work? Yeah, we sell 'em directly to the investors and then if they want to sell them to somebody else, then it's just kind like a peer to peer transaction.  [00:02:20] Sam Wilson: So, what are you selling to the investor? Because if somebody gets in for a hundred bucks, I mean, they don't own a whole loan. They  [00:02:27] Joshua Emison: own a part of a loan. Exactly. And they, don't only, they own a part of a whole pool of loans. Right? So every we fund these loans, they buy a piece of it, right. A hundred dollars is whatever percentage of that pool. Right. And then whenever the loans are paid back every month, right. We get principal and interest back every month, they get their percent of that repayment from all the loans that are in the.  [00:02:48] Sam Wilson: Right, right. Yeah. I mean, they just own a portion of that pool of loans, but you'd mentioned there that they can then sell out, I guess, whenever they want  [00:02:56] Joshua Emison: Yeah. So, let's say they've held it and they're getting principal back, right? So a hundred dollars now is $80 a principal in it, right. They can go onto the market and they would just post it and say, Hey, I got an $80 worth of principal share who wants to buy it from me? And then someone could come in and buy it from 'em. Now,  [00:03:13] Sam Wilson: Do you guys host that transaction? Is there a platform that there is an active live market for those shares? Is this blockchain that you guys use in the back end to, to, yeah. You  [00:03:24] Joshua Emison: nailed it. Sam it's blockchain in the back. so we are still, we're still fully compliant. So the, that transaction is hosted within our platform, right? Cause we have to still maintain all the, know your customer, that on team one laundering rules and everything. But it's all hosted within there. And anyone who would want to, another investment, they can just go buy from that market.  [00:03:43] Sam Wilson: Got it. So you guys host the platform. It is all done by done on the bla on the blockchain. Tell me this. What were some of the challenges? I mean, this is kind of a hot topic right now. Like what's blockchain gonna do to real estate and you guys are on the front end of it. Right? Like I, there's not, I haven't talked to anybody else really that there's a lot of people talking about it, but not a lot of people doing it yet using blockchain in their real estate side of things.  What was the. Bringing it to market challenges. What were the things that you guys had to solve? Maybe that there wasn't a solution out there for, and how'd you  [00:04:14] Joshua Emison: do that? Yeah. So, we're, we are not quite at market yet, right? We're still building, people can sign up@ourwebsitesonbank.io. So they can be one of the first users. But what we're doing now is actually, so security tokens is what they're called register tokens that represent secur. They tried it back in like 2018 and they didn't have the infrastructure. Right. So the things that you're saying, Hey, what's there, what's not there now everything's there. So it's actually entirely possible for you to have the right custodians. Right. Which is very important if you're holding other people's money. There's the right. There's low fees for moving things around. Right. So that makes it profitable for us. Right. So that way we're not paying a dollar to pay a $2 distribution. Right. So all everything's there. Right? I guess we, the challenges that we've been facing is that we are kind of building it from scratch, even though all the pieces are there. And then the other thing is that we still have to make sure that we're fully compliant, right? So, there's still lawyers involved. You can't get rid of those. And they're expensive, right? So it's just making sure that we're working with them to ensure that we're doing everything that's necessary to keep all the various. Players. There's a lot of players in it's right. From regulatory standpoint, we gotta keep 'em all happy. Right. So that's it's not so much on the blockchain side. It's on the traditional finance side.  [00:05:30] Sam Wilson: Yeah. And I got just, I mean, just outta pure curiosity, I have just the come to market. How do you even get there? How do you raise funds for it? What's it take to get something like this off the ground and running? I mean, there's a billion questions. I. On, I guess, on that front, but I want to talk, more about this blockchain idea. Yeah. What walk me through, I guess either a technology you're using, or I guess how does that work? So if I go to sell it, you guys don't wanna be man handling, Hey, Sam sold this impersonate person B maybe you host on the platform, but you really don't wanna know about it or talk about it or hear about it. It's just, it just happens in the background. I mean, that's the beauty of it. But I guess give me some more color to that, cuz again, this is a guy that doesn't even probably know the right questions to ask. Yeah. But it's, I'd love to learn  [00:06:16] Joshua Emison: more about yeah, for sure. For sure. So, so for people who don't even know what a blockchain is, right. It's just a ledger, right? So it's just a long list of transactions that can never be changed. Right. So every transaction's there and it can never be changed. And then you can automate programming on it to write whatever you want on that ledger. Right? So there's certain things that have to be written. So if you want to purchase a security from us, you have to gone through the show, us your ID, right. We have to make sure that you're a real person and that you're not on some sort of terrorist watch list. And that just allows us to put on the ledger. This person is legit. They're allowed to buy these, right? So now every time in the future, you go to buy one, we just go back to that one transaction says, yep. This person can actually get it. So that removes us. Right? Cause normally if in the, from other guys they would have to, every single time they have to go through and be like, does this person have this? Does this person have this? We don't need that anymore. Right. We do it one time. It's there. It can never be changed. It's good to go. So that's positive. I mean, I really that's the biggest part. Right? So, so every time you are purchasing these tokens, it's updating who owns what? Right. We have to always, obviously we have to know who owns what it's updating the principal left, right? Like I said, it goes, the principal gets lowered every month. You're getting paid back principal and interest. Right. So we don't have to create some difficult programming to, to track that it's just done automatically through, within each token. There's just a lot of benefits where we're optimizing the process. We're lowering costs. And once it's up and running, we've actually removed a lot of third parties like lawyers and transfer agents and stuff like that. Cause once we have it set up and it's good to go, it just goes. How does  [00:07:52] Sam Wilson: this work and I'm thinking, and this is more nuanced question, but let's assume you get one investor from every state, right?  And now you gotta file all these blue sky laws. Or do you guys have to file those or is that done in any regulation or, I mean,  [00:08:06] Joshua Emison: Yeah. Yeah. That's a good question. So, that's something that we're still kind of working through. So we're looking at doing a reggae plus, which is supposed to be under blue sky loss. Right. Which is whole country. Yep. Good to go. Right. But we know that some certain states right. Might have further questions and we're just prepared to we're prepared to take those as they come. But as far as, what we've seen in precedent, like reggae plush covers the whole.  [00:08:31] Sam Wilson: Got it. Got it. No, that's cool. Let's talk. So now we got an idea of what the program does and the benefits you guys have found, obviously by launching it on the blockchain, I guess. When is your, when do you anticipate being market  [00:08:44] Joshua Emison: ready? Yeah, probably about five months from now five or six months from now. And although we are on the blockchain, I just wanna make it super clear. That's totally. Backend stuff, right? When you go and you down and you look at the app, it looks like a, like a Robin hood or whatever, it looks super simple. You're just buying shares of loans. You're selling them. Right. You don't need to know anything about crypto or blockchain or whatever. Right. That's just for us. Right.  [00:09:09] Sam Wilson: No. Understood. Understood. I mean, it's essentially the it's the, it's just the program that's running your front  [00:09:14] Joshua Emison: end. Exactly. It's like the Amazon web service. It's like the cloud, right? Nobody cares. Nobody knows how the cloud works. It just know it's there. [00:09:21] Sam Wilson: Yeah. Nobody. Nobody. Exactly. That's exactly right. That's that's really cool. I wanna get into the nuance of your business and talk about what you guys intend on. Acquiring. So you said it's obviously, it's second position, multifamily assets. Who is your borrower in that position? Like who's coming to you looking for a second, lean on a multifamily property and why, and then I guess also, how do you end, intend on finding those borrowers?  [00:09:48] Joshua Emison: Yeah. So the borrowers that we are anticipating are those that own smaller properties, right? So less than 99 units, probably closer to the 20 to 50 range. They've had a property for maybe a year or two, it's doing well, maybe a couple more than that. And they wanna expand, right? Whether they wanna do renovations, whether they want a down payment for another property, whether they want there's tons of reasons that you could want this capital, right. And banks are either not going to let them because LTV requirements, right. Hey, you did a refi a year ago. We don't wanna on do it again. Or whatever. Right? So there's a lot of stringent bank requirements where they, you have profitable properties and they, or it's too low, right. They're like, Hey, I just want $200,000. I want $300,000. Banks are like, Hey if this isn't a million dollars, like don't talk to me. It's not worth it for us. Right. So we're overcoming all those barriers, right? So people who need the lower amount people who need it fast, right. They don't wanna wait 30 to 60 days for a. People who don't wanna refi. Right. They wanna keep their rates from the last two or three years, cuz nobody wants the new rates now. All those types of people are going to be the kind of borrowers that we're looking for.  [00:10:52] Sam Wilson: Got it. I got it. So, I mean, there's really two separate sides. I think of your business. One, one side is the investor side, which is, and I would say this is true for anybody in real estate but for you in particular, it seems like there's almost two different businesses running side by side, where one is like, Hey, we've gotta go out and we've gotta acquire. Second position, multifamily loans with, under 99 units and really target them. And then also we've gotta go out and build the backend technology side of things and find investors. Tell me, when did you know that you had a good I guess a good product thesis or a good business plan where you said, Hey man, I'm onto something here because I see a need here and I've got a unique way to fill it or fix that need. [00:11:33] Joshua Emison: Yeah. So then, again, two sides of the market. So, so two two answers here. I grew up in place with not a ton of financial literacy. Right. Very, kind of average type of people. And as I got into selling businesses and I became kinda like a consultant, right? Like, is this the right time to do it? Is this, what else can I be investing in, blah, blah, blah. And my friends started reaching out to me and they're like, Hey, I wanna get into real estate. Like, what do you think? Or I wanna get into business. What do you think? And I realized. A lot of them wanted very passive ways and they don't wanna be, they don't want things that were too volatile. Right. They were afraid of the stock market, afraid of crypto the real estate, they understand it. They're not sure. Right. Or they wanna be diversifying equity and debt. I was like, man, like, this is a huge demand. People want this. Right. And they wanted at low minimum so they can test it out and they want liquidity. They don't wanna be locked up for five years. Right. And so I kind of knew going in that this was just a huge demand. And then on the other side, I had some friends who had started pretty early in real estate investing and now they were kind of selling their single family homes, getting into multi-family and then they would just kind of get stuck. Right. They're like a, they're just a boat adrift because they either had. Find more find more investors, but maybe they couldn't because they've only done one deal or they had to save up for their next down payment or whatever. And I realized that there were people who wanted more capital but they couldn't get it, but their pro their properties were profitable. Right. They were doing well. And they're in good locations. I'm like, man, this is crazy. Like these guys. Could be crushing it even more if they were just able to leverage their profitability. And that's what gave us the idea for the other side.  [00:13:05] Sam Wilson: Got it. No, that's really cool. Tell me what have been some challenges bringing this to scale, scaling it. I mean, you've got so many irons in the fire. I'm thinking both, like you said, from a regulatory perspective, from a finding investors' perspective to finding. People to borrowers perspective and you got a lot of different things going on, but tell me what have been some of the major challenges you've overcome bringing this to scale and then how did you do it? [00:13:30] Joshua Emison: Yeah, I think you kind of hit on one of the big challenges, which is there's a lot going on and being able to clearly articulate the different challenges, but like in their lane, right. Without them kind of bleeding over to each other. So I think that's easier. That's the easiest way for people to understand it. Right. So it was, a lot of research, a lot. Trial and error of explaining it and be like, do you understand what I just said? No. Okay. Well let me explain it differently. and yeah, just making it, making people realize the potential on both sides. Right. Because a lot of times someone's like, oh, well I really get this side, but I don't really understand that side. Right. Depending on their background and which, where they're coming from. So I think those are some of the challenges but. I feel like the the winds are kind of at our sales now where we've nailed down how to explain those things and we've nailed down the best path forward for each of these things. So that way we have good plants, all plants for how to address everything. Got  [00:14:21] Sam Wilson: it. Now that's that's really cool. Tell me this. When you think about the your investor avatar or who is that person and yeah. Yeah. Tell me that if you.  [00:14:31] Joshua Emison: Yeah. Yeah. So we're looking really at millennials and younger, right? So 93% of that age group invest through their phone. So, so they're already primed to invest in things via an app. when you ask them, what's the best long term asset to hold, the plurality. So over, the majority. It's not over 51%, but the highest group is real estate. Right? So we know people want this people get, why aren't you in real invest in real estate. And it's always, I don't have enough capital or it's too risky. Cause they don't know about the market Or it's not liquid. Right. And we solve all those things. Cause there's no volatility, it's a loan, right. It's a fixed rate loan. So you know what you're gonna get. It's low minimums and it's not, and it's not liquid. So we kind of, addressing the biggest challenges that people have when it comes to investing. so those are the challenges that we found and how we overcame. Got  [00:15:15] Sam Wilson: it. That's really interesting. I guess, anticipated, if you can share this on the air, maybe you can't, but what's an anticipated return profile look like. I mean, there's gotta be some like idea of what an investor could potentially generate, through a platform like this. [00:15:31] Joshua Emison: Yeah. So we are looking at doing loans. Four to 12% loans, right. Based on the property. And they would invest in pools based on the terms. So like 4% pools, which would be like the short term loans. Right. In really good areas up to, an 8% pool up to a 12% pool. It's like a 10 year loan. Right. So it's a little bit hard to predict things like that. And so they could pick, or they could say, Hey, I wanna invest. A hundred dollars in this pool, a hundred dollars in that pool, a hundred dollars in that pool. Right. And it's IRR. So that's what they would be getting as if they were lending. Right. It's not like a, it's not like, a bank account. Right. You're getting it as if you're, you are the lender. Yeah. And that, and those returns compound. Right. Cause if you reinvest, you're not reinvest, you're reinvesting your principle and your interest. Right. So you're making interest on interest which is how you get to compound interest, right? So it's, it can grow pretty well over time.  [00:16:21] Sam Wilson: Right. And I think that's a cool, both of those are cool features that, we commonly lack, I think in the real estate space is the illiquidity obviously of our investments. I like it and I hate it. It's one of those things where it's like, well, I've already put my money in, so it's not like I can do anything about it now and you just stop worrying about it, right? Yeah. Yeah. That's a benefit of it. and then the downside is that it is an illiquid investment and you guys are solving, I think that part and the other part of it is just the ability to reinvest principle and interest. I think that's kind of cool. I mean, that's something, again, that in, those indications that we do, there's no option for that. It's not like you can send that to me and say, Hey, Sam, here's, I wanna send back the thousand bucks. You sent me this month. Thanks. Thanks so much. I can't do anything with, I mean, there's just no place to put it right in that especially in a retirement accounts. I mean, that's a beef I have right now in my own retirement accounts, like, oh, great. Thanks for the distribution. But it's, 800 bucks from that deal. And There's no place to put that right away. Yep.  [00:17:15] Joshua Emison: Yep. So, yeah, you just brought up a couple more you asked me like, who's the investor, right? Those are a couple more personas. Right? So people between deals they could put in there for six months, right. To their next deal. And they could make way more than their savings account. people who have a savings account, but let's say they have. You got six months of your living expenses or whatever in a savings account. Okay. Put four months of that into son's bank. So that way, when you need it, you can get liquidity. Right? You have that, that those two months immediately to you, you put the other four months on the secondary market, but in the meantime you've been getting. A lot more than your 0.06% savings account, right?  [00:17:52] Sam Wilson: right. Yeah. You're being generous on that. Yeah. yeah. Yeah. On that savings account. No, that's really cool. I think we've talked about most of the questions I had return profiles loans. Liquidity. Let's see, I did have one risks. Let's talk about that real quick. I know we're almost outta time here, but I'd love to hear, I guess, where you see risk in what it is that you guys are doing and how you're actively mitigating  [00:18:16] Joshua Emison: it. Yeah. So risk and any loan is default and lack of payment, right? So, the number one way to mitigate that risk, and I think that's across the entire real estate spectrum is good. Good underwriting. Good analysis. So we're mitigating that through our borrower platform, we actually integrate with their bank account, the bank account of the, the company that like that, most properties are owned in LLCs, right. And that LC will have its own bank account. So we would integrate with that bank account. So we would see from the source of truth. All of the inflows and outflows. So we're not just hoping that they're giving us good PNLs and good rent rolls. We know exactly what's happening. Right. And then we're pulling in data. This is top of the market data that we can get. That's very localized. So we can see projected population growth. We can see job market changes. We can see all this stuff right. Which helps us make the underwriting a lot more effective. And so that's that in itself is like the biggest mitigator of risk, right. So, yeah.  [00:19:10] Sam Wilson: Is there a way to systematically aggregate all that data? Cuz I love the idea, but seeing an active bank account and keeping track of their inflows and outflows, outflows on a monthly basis just sounds daunting. I mean, so is there a dashboard you guys have created where it's like, okay, Hey jobs are growing. Okay. Hey cool. Population's growing. Okay, cool. They're still maintaining a six figure balance in their checking account, whatever it is. I mean.  [00:19:36] Joshua Emison: Yeah. So they would integrate it and then forget about it. Right. So we are so, okay. Let's have two, two things, right? So one is the cash flow. That is a dashboard. The borrowers can use actually any property owner can use. They don't have to be a bar from us and it would just integrate all their things if they have, if they wanna use their rent collection software on their. And they would be able to see our software just uses AI algorithms to, to create that dashboard where they would see their inflows. Now it flows every month. Right. So that's that's that piece of it, all of that data that I was talking about before that's on the back end, that's just for us, right. Part of our, getting that data, we can't resell that data. So that's for us to look at, and that's how we do the underwriting, but that's also automated, right? We're not. Personally going through and filling in Excel's things. We're pulling it in through APIs and we have the the algorithms that are putting that together.  [00:20:24] Sam Wilson: Got it, man. That's really cool. Josh have enjoyed this conversation today. Certainly love bringing guests in the show that know a heck of a lot more about things like blockchain, how that functions, putting that all together and actually making a marketable product out of it. I look forward to seeing this here in five to six months when you guys certainly go live, lots of fun having you on. Thanks for sharing everything today. Do appreciate it. If S wanna get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do that?  [00:20:50] Joshua Emison: Yeah. So if they're interested in, we, if they wanna get a loan like this, we can do it today. Right. It's just investing that's in five or six months. We're, we're raising capital. So if people wanna talk to me about that as well, they can. But so the best way to, to sign up, if this is interesting to you as an investor, sign up on our website, SBU IO, if you wanna get in touch with me.

Michele Romanow joined the cast of CBC's Dragons' Den in 2014 after successfully selling her digital coupon business SnapSaves to Groupon. At 28 years old, she was the youngest "dragon" on the show, but that didn't stop her from innovating. During her second episode, Michele decided to flip the traditional Dragons' Den pitch from equity to revenue.    The decision led to the creation of the investment company Clearco and the invention of the revenue-based financing category. The model helps fund ecommerce companies fast and affordable, where founders pay a set percentage only when they make revenue. To date, Clearco has invested $4B in 10,000 founders in 11 countries across the world.    Listen to Nathan and Michele discuss:  Why her first business was a caviar fishery  Acquiring customers through sidewalk chalk  Creating the Clearco model by shifting the Dragons' Den model Accepting rejection as part of the job Taking advice from people that you want to be How to build the relentless muscle  How data removes bias from funding decisions  Stories and lessons from Dragons' Den  And much more ecommerce funding advice…       Who do you want to see next on the podcast?

For more than two hundred years, treasure-hunters have come to Oak Island in search of riches and glory. Fired by the discovery of man-made underground shafts, tunnels and passageways, men have pitted their own ingenuity, money, and muscle against the island. But always, the island has sent them away, empty-handed.Bob Restall was sure that he could succeed where others had failed. He moved his wife, Mildred, their teenage son, Bobby, and their younger son, Ricky, to Oak Island, where, for nearly six years the family lived a Spartan life, channeling their energies into a persistent drive to unravel the mystery of Oak Island and claim the treasure. But, then one August day, the Restall hunt for buried treasure came to a sudden and tragic end. Four men lay dead.. . . . .Publications:Lee Lamb is the daughter of Mildred and Bob Restall. She authored Oak Island Obsession: The Restall Story (Dundurn, 2006), to honour her parents, and to set the record straight about what had occurred during the Restall hunt for treasure on Oak Island. Lee's book includes a description of Restall family life before Oak Island, the realities they encountered in their Oak Island search for treasure, and events that transpired after the accident. The book contains letters, journals and essays written by each family member, as well as numerous original photographs, sketches and maps.Oak Island Family: The Restall Hunt for Buried Treasure (Dundurn, 2012), Lee's second book, was written for teens, young adults, and adults who are unfamiliar with the history of Oak Island. It guides the reader through the discoveries made on Oak Island starting in 1795. These discoveries are astounding and have been seen by treasure-hunters, historians and fans as proofs that an immense treasure lay within Oak Island. Oak Island Family also includes a retelling of the Restall family's experiences on the Island in a shortened version, suitable for teens.

Approximately ten years after that, Lee earned a Bachelor of Education degree and a Master of Education at the University of Toronto OISE, Toronto, Ontario.Learning for its own sake has become one of Lee's favorite activities. Acquiring an education that grants access to rewarding careers has been equally prized. Education has allowed Lee to spend many years of her life working with people. She enjoyed years as a hospital social worker and even more years as a high school teacher, first locally, and then in northern fly-in Cree communities.

In the ninety-ninth episode of Collecting Real Estate, we interviewed Frank LaMark from Lamco Investments. Frank LaMark founded Lamco Investments in 2018 with a vision. A vision to creatively acquire properties big and small while revitalizing neighborhoods and communities!Unmatched passion and drive, Frank fixed and flipped his first property at age 19 while still living with his parents in Itasca, Illinois. At age 20, he jumped into the auto industry and sold cars for Torco Chrysler Plymouth and then Packey Webb Ford In Wheaton/Glen Ellyn Illinois.This industry is aggressive and taught him sound fundamentals in sales, sales management and financing. Consistently achieving top sales position month after month. Fast forward 10 years, the auto industry took a down turn after 9-11 so Frank decided to take the sales and marketing skills he learned for a decade and he started a kitchen cabinet design showroom selling cabinetry and countertops. This new venture snowballed into manufacturing, importation and the creation of his own line of RTA – ready to assemble kitchen cabinetry. Selling in showrooms all over the country as well as online via e-commerce direct to consumer and top retailers. At the time the internet was new and some would call him a disruptor and others would call him a visionary for selling cabinetry online.Flash forward to 2018, Frank founded Lamco Investments, LLC.  He switched his focus from cabinetry to real estate full time. Acquiring properties direct to seller using old fashion roll up your sleeves hard work.frank@lamcoinvestments.comText: 331 551 1131chainhouserentals.comroxanaresort.comlakeview-place.comlotuscottages.com
