Over-worked or over-entertained? Our humanity gives us the joint gifts of both activity and passivity. We act and we are acted upon. But how do we balance and mediate these states? How do we cultivate long practices and habits that help us to inhabit the space between activity and passivity, bringing them together in a beautiful agency?Poet and linguist Alysia Harris joins Matt Croasmun for a discussion of that space between active and passive in human life—bringing the concepts of wonder, awareness/attention, patient receptivity to the natural world and to God, bearing witness to the autonomy and action of the other, and how she cultivates and meditates on these things in her own life.Show NotesNorman Wirzba, This Sacred Life: Humanity's Place in a Wounded WorldActive life vs passive lifeIntermediate category between activity and passivity: attentive awarenessActive receptivity and bearing witnessHuman beings enacting and reactingWitness as perception and responseCarl Sagan, Robin Kimmerer, Timothy WilburnWonder as a mediating emotion between active and passive"I'm not the entire system."Granting autonomy to a natural systemMaking the right impact through granting the sovereignty of the otherAdam and Eve as gardeners—beauty vs productivityGenesis: "Avad and Shamar"—Till and Keep, Serve and ProtectRestrain, observe, attend, and magnify"Me and God"Capitalism, scarcity mentality, and "enough"Ping-ponging between over-worked and over-entertainment—deficient visions of activity and deficient visions of passivityMark 4: Parable of the Sower.

At age 10 she wrote her first poem, after hearing about sonnets in English class. That class began her life-long love of poetry and the literary arts.Alysia went to The University of Pennsylvania where she experienced her first success as a writer and a performer. In 2008 she featured on the HBO documentary: Brave New Voices where she wowed audiences with her piece "That Girl". In 2010 Alysia graduated UPENN Summa Cum Laude with honors and was also inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Alysia received her MFA in poetry from NYU in 2014 and her PhD in linguistics from Yale University in 2019. Her dissertation “The Non-Aspectual Meaning of African-American English ‘Aspect' Markers” breaks with traditional analyses and explores the discourse-oriented uses of the preverbal particles ‘be' and ‘done' in varieties of African-American English.Although she has experienced scholastic success, poetry has always come first in her heart. Cave Canem fellow, winner of the 2014 and 2015 Stephen Dunn Poetry Prizes, Pushcart Nominee, her poetry has appeared  in Best American Poets, Indiana Review, The Offing, Callaloo, Solstice Literary Magazine, Squaw Valley Review, Letters Journal, and Vinyl Magazine among others. Her first chapbook How Much We Must Have Looked Like Stars to Stars won the 2015 New Women's Voices Chapbook Contest and is available for purchase on site.Alysia was also a founding member of the internationally known performance poetry collective, The Strivers Row and has garnered over 5 million views on YouTUBE. She has toured nationally for the last 10 years and also performed at the United Nations and the US Embassies in Jordan and Ukraine, as well as in Australia, Canada, Germany, Slovakia, South Africa, the UAE, and the UK.Alysia now lives in Atlanta, GA where she works as a consultant for the Morehouse Center for Excellence in Education and as arts and soul editor at Scalawag Magazine, a nonprofit POC-led, women run media organization focused on Southern movement, community, and dissent.

Show Notes:This episode has been produced as a video with some rich visuals, so to get to the full experience click on this linkLanding page for this episodeThis episode has been produced as a video with some rich visuals, so to get to the full experience click on this linkVictor Dover made the move from Alexandria, VA to Miami to co-launch the firm Dover, Kohl & Partners Town Planning with his business partner Joe Kohl some 34 years ago. Victor is a charter member of the Congress for the New Urbanism and has worked for many public agencies, developers, and citizen groups to create appropriate methods of land development regulations.The two main inter-related themes Victor presents in this episode are when planning a community, start first with the “green parts”, the parks, greenways, and parkways and then shape the rest of the city around these accordingly and second, street design is the thing we can least afford to get wrong. It becomes obvious how these two themes are intimately related when we consider that our streets should be traffic-calmed people-oriented places, featuring beautiful tree canopies, frequently referred to as the lungs of the city.And speaking of street design, that happens to be the title of the fabulous book Victor co-wrote along with John Massengale seven years ago and the truly big, breaking news is that Street Design: The Secret to Great Cities and Towns will be coming out as new, completely refreshed second edition in 2022. Here's the first edition link if you can't wait and want to get the original, which is highly recommended.We also discuss the need to make our streets safe and inviting for “All Ages & Abilities” across all mobility modes drawing inspiration from Dutch cycling network design and from public spaces in Copenhagen and other beloved cities in Europe as well as historic places right here in the United States such as Alexandria, VA, Charleston, SC, and even Buffalo, NY.We talk about normalizing the act of riding a bike to carry our everyday activities by creating environments that are comfortable for everyone through the implementation of protected and separated infrastructure paired with ultra-low speed shared spaces.Additional Helpful Links:Dover Kohl YouTube Channel – for an entire series of brilliant guidanceBarnes Dance or Pedestrian ScrambleCities Aren't Loud, Cars Are Loud - NJB videoDesigning Cities by Starting with the Green Parts - Frederick Law OlmstedThe Underline TrailLudlam TrailEast Coast GreenwayMiami Dade Parks Foundation - #LiveAParkLife National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA)Missoula Montana Downtown Master Plan and the Dover Kohl UpdateBenton MacKaye - helped pioneer the idea of land preservation for recreation and conservation purposesGabe Klein - a good on article about GabeIncremental Development AllianceRoss Chapin: Pocket Neighborhoods - Our Episode featuring Ross and our award winning video on Pocket NeighborhoodsClimate Planner book by Jason KingSteve Wright - a writer advising on issues of accessibilityShow Credits:Audio Production by Active TownsA not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping communities create a Culture of Activity.Creative Commons License: Attributions Non-Commercial No Derivatives 2021Please consider supporting the Active Towns Podcast by making a donation or becoming Patreon PatronTo sign up for our monthly newsletter, scroll down to the form at bottom of our home pageBe sure to check out our video podcasts and other content on our YouTube Channel - and please subscribe!Also, check out our video archive on VimeoYou can reach John Simmerman by email at john@activetowns.orgMusic: Various Logic Pro X mixes by John Simmerman★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Show Notes:Our YouTube video version of this episode for the full visual experienceLanding Page for this episodeWhen we think of the safe and inviting cycle networks in The Netherlands and in Copenhagen, what likely comes to mind are the protected and separated cycle tracks and bike lanes. But these typically only account for 30-405 of the typical city cycling network, the rest, the majority of the networks are comprised of different form of shared space including Woonerfs (ultra-slow speed streets), Feitsstraats (or bicycle priority streets), and even Edge Lane Roads also commonly known in some locations as Advisory Bike Lanes.Michael Williams has taken upon himself during his self proclaimed third career to be the pied piper of Edge Lane Roads here in North America. I wanted to talk with him about ELR's and how he became fascinated with them because I too have been intrigued by these often forgotten and misunderstood cycle network infrastructure treatments.The design of these facilities are almost too simple and they work. The safety profile of the Dutch, Danish, and even North American installations are extremely encouraging. Given what I've seen, I believe we will see many more cities decide to adopt these facilitates in the future.For more information all all things Edge Lane Roads please visit Michael's website here: https://www.advisorybikelanes.com/Show Credits:Audio Production by Active TownsA not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping communities create a Culture of Activity.Creative Commons License: Attributions Non-Commercial No Derivatives 2021Please consider supporting the Active Towns Podcast by making a donation or becoming Patreon PatronTo sign up for our monthly newsletter, scroll down to the form at bottom of our home pageBe sure to check out our video podcasts and other content on our YouTube Channel - and please subscribe!Also, check out our video archive on VimeoYou can reach John Simmerman by email at john@activetowns.orgMusic: Various Logic Pro X mixes by John Simmerman★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Last week on the Land.MBA Podcast, we talked about important skills that you need to succeed in the land business. In this episode, we are building on those fundamental principals and taking a deep dive into Data, the most important part of land business.  Are you looking to purchase land? Is your land not selling? Understanding the numbers and details about a property is key in determining if the deal will make you money or cost you big time. Today, we talk about the difference between number and data, how you can use data to find the best deals, how to clean your data for accuracy, and how you can use it to get the attention of motivated buyers.    Let's Connect  For coaching and courses go here - https://www.land.mba Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/land.mba/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mylandmba   Transcript: Speaker1: [00:00:00] They say the data are like people getting interrogated, tortured hard enough and will tell you whatever you want to hear. Seriously, though, and our last episode, Dave and I introduced the five skills you need to pay the bills as a land investor. It's fitting that the first one is data. Data sits at the core of land investing. Do it well and you can make a lot of money with a lot less effort. Do it poorly and you can struggle to cover your mailing budget. In this episode of the Land MBA podcast, Dave and I are going deep on data what it is and how you master it to succeed in land. Speaker2: [00:00:57] Welcome to the Land NBA podcast on your host David  along with my co-host. How on earth are you doing today, buddy? Speaker1: [00:01:08] I'm I'm good. It's getting cold here. Got a sweaters and sweatshirts, and it's all is breaking out fast. [00:01:18] I know. Fire pit out in with some of my my men's Speaker2: [00:01:26] Group last night, and yeah, I brought a light rain jacket and it wasn't warm enough. It's the chill is starting to set in here too. Speaker1: [00:01:37] Yes, sir. Speaker2: [00:01:39] But we've got a hot topic today near and dear to my heart. The warm you up, especially, you're a data geek. Speaker1: [00:01:49] Exactly. Well, last time we we talked about the five skills. What did you say? It was the five skills you need to bill or something pay the bills. Five skills to pay the bills. So, yeah, so the first one of those is data. So data, it is. That's what we're going to talk about. And I can't think of anything more important in this business. I mean, there are five skills, but this is without this. The other ones just don't matter. Speaker2: [00:02:19] Right. It all starts, it all starts with data. Speaker1: [00:02:22] Exactly. Speaker2: [00:02:23] Being able to analyze it, being able to use it to your advantage. Speaker1: [00:02:30] Exactly. But before we get into the meat and potatoes of data, if you are enjoying this podcast and I hope that you are in getting some good value out of it, whether you're watching or whether you're listening to it on podcasts, on on iTunes or Google Play or Stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts, or if you're watching it on YouTube, please like subscribe.

And even if you don't love it, give us a five star review anyway. Just because we're nice guys. Help us out. All right. And with that, you will improve our data. So let's get to it. Speaker2: [00:03:16] Awesome. Awesome. So, Howard. Biggest question, what is data? Speaker1: [00:03:23] Data, what is data? Well, it's different kinds of information that are formatted in a particular manner, which then we can subsequently analyze and report on at some point. Speaker2: [00:03:37] So already? Come on. Speaker1: [00:03:40] That's the technical definition. I think that within our business, the way that most people immediately think of data is we get a list from the county, from data tree wherever we get it from. And and then we mail to that list. Well, that list represents data. It is made up of a set of records which have a number of fields of information, and we use all that to send mail and to connect with people without that data. We're going nowhere fast, so it starts with data even before we mail. We're using data because we're analyzing counties, and so we're collecting information about those counties in order to say, I want to mail to this one, but not to that one. That is a form of data analysis. Speaker2: [00:04:37] Very good. Unclear. Speaker1: [00:04:43] Clears wood, but it should be saying that in software, you've got two different things, you've got software programs and then you've got data. So the software programs are things that store, manipulate and use data, things like CRM systems, pricing systems, mapping systems, whatever they are. But in order for them to have any value, we have to feed in that data, which is the raw information that we're then going to manipulate with those systems, CRM or whatever, so that we can, you know, make use of it for our business. I mean, people like to call the land speed, for example, a CRM system, and to some sense, it is. But what one of the things that it really does, you know, at the most fundamental level, it's a place where we store or collect, store, manipulate and use data. That's fundamentally what it is. The rest is just icing on the cake. All right. Speaker2: [00:05:43] So. Why is this important and how to a land investor and how would they use it? Speaker1: [00:05:52] So I think a good way to think about it is something really relevant in today's world is with with with the whole all the emotion around COVID, you've got everybody saying, follow the science. Well, what is the science? The science is somebody. Hopefully somebody credible is doing a study. Hopefully, they're building a model for that study that would be credible. And then they are collecting data. And that's what science is. We observe and collect data and then analyze it so that we can understand the world around us. And it's it's no different here. So it helps us, whereas that helps us understand everything from the spread of a disease all as well as what different therapies and whatnot will help mitigate the spread of the disease. And our case, we're collecting data. And again, we're understanding markets or understanding pricing. We're able to, you know, comp and figure out what market values are. So it really is. It is the entire foundation of our business and it's used across everything. It starts with the county, you know, with county selection, it gets into the mailing, but it goes all the way through to sales. Before I do a sale, a final sale, I've got a pricing calculator and I'm putting all the numbers in and it's telling me, OK, if I if I, this is particularly true, if I'm selling it with seller financing, if I price it with this price at this interest rate, with this term, it's going to give me this ROI, this margin and this number of months to break even. And so I'm analyzing all the way through every stage of the business based on data. Speaker2: [00:07:42] Gotcha. So we use it to calm properties to prep our mailers. We're going to use it to validate the deals that come in to look at what kind of margins we need to make and price it accordingly based on what's out there, et cetera. So there's different. Stages, types and stages of data. Talk about that a little bit in regards to from, you know, acquisition and the analysis, cleaning your data, things like that. Sure. Speaker1: [00:08:19] So first, types of data, there's two different types. There's what they call quantitative data, and there's qualitative data. Quantitative data are things that can be measured. So for example, if you're looking at a property, you can measure the sides of the property a number of feet and then you can multiply that. You can figure out what the what the acreage is. You can figure out the elevation from the lowest point to the highest point. Those are all quantitative numerical facts that you can use to evaluate something qualitative would be its attributes. So that would be things like does it have trees on it? Is it hilly or is it flat? Does it have any water features? What is the zoning? And the interesting in both are very important both and in every aspect of the business, because what it allows us to do using that qualitative information is to get a better understanding of how a set of different properties might have something in common. And some of those factors, some of those qualitative factors are referred to, sometimes referred to as metadata. So for example, if I had a still shot picture of David here, that would be a picture. But the metadata around it might say that the picture was taken at such and such a time on such and such a date in Colorado, and it represents a picture of a bald man. Speaker1: [00:09:48] It's so then if I collect thousands and thousands of pictures, I can say, you know what, I just want to see a subset of pictures that are from people who are in Colorado bald and where the picture was taken in the last month. And then I get a subset of those pictures of of what puts them in common. Well, we can do the same thing in land. We can we can show a set of attributes that we think make a number of properties in common. Now it may be that they're in the same subdivision. It may mean that they're in the same zip code, location, whatever. But aside from those sort of government metadata pieces, we might do it based on attributes. So we might say, actually, what I'm looking for is I'm looking for land between this acreage and that acreage with trees on it with at least 50 percent flat. And you know, and a water feature, whatever, and then collect a set of properties like that. And that would be a cohort of properties. And those are the ones I would use to comp a property because they have the most attributes in common. So qualitative and quantitative. Speaker2: [00:11:00] And I would say that that is more of a quantity. It's, you know, the difference between qualitative and quantitative sometimes is also between the art and the science. We talk about this business being a lot of both. You know, sometimes it's more art than science because you talk about attributes and, you know, trees, flat part, you know, things like that. View's location may be valuable to one person and not the other as far as a buyer goes. And or, you know, they may wait it a little bit differently than than others. You know, how many times have you sold a property where you know you had a few people look at it and they didn't like it, and then the right person came along and loved it? It's it's very qualitative. It's art and science. So there's no there's no magic bullets, no matter how much you analyze stuff, but you've got to do is you've got to be as quantitative as you can when, especially when you're buying it. Speaker1: [00:12:04] So you'd like to be, you know, it's funny, my son is so into of all things metalwork. I mean, go figure, how that happened certainly apparently did not come from me. In fact, we went to a whole weekend of blacksmithing last weekend. He was so into it. So anyway, there's a new show on TV called Metal Smith Masters or something like that. And so we're watching it, and two of the contestants on this show had to work together in a team. And one is a guy that designs everything on a computer and then has, like a water cutter, cut exact pieces based upon the design he's created on a computer. He's really good with the numbers and everything else. The other gal is just an artist. She's like, Yeah, I think it should look like that. She just starts working on it. So completely right brain, left brain. But usually the best work comes from a combination of the two. I mean, if you are, it's sort of it's the same thing in business like, you know, you've got financial people. Everything is driven by the numbers and they can't sort of get their head out of the numbers to say, OK, well, what about relationships and what about, you know, sort of the the softer the goodwill and, you know, the softer aspects of value? You really need both. And that's that's true of data, too, and it gets back to this idea of quantitative versus qualitative. Speaker3: [00:13:19] These are some crazy times in the real estate field. Demand is high, inventory is low. If you're a realtor, a wholesaler or house flipper, you've probably noticed how hard it's become to find quality deals. This is why so many in our industry are looking at land as an outstanding way to add new revenue stream to their portfolio. Speaker4: [00:13:40] If you're listening to this podcast, you already know that land is a relatively unknown niche of the multibillion dollar real estate market with huge profit potential. Seriously, what other business delivers 200 300 a thousand percent return on investment deal after deal? Speaker3: [00:13:57] It seems hard to believe, but land really returns 100 to 300 percent commonly and sometimes over a thousand percent deal after deal and in the age of COVID. Demand for land has never been higher. Speaker4: [00:14:11] Many of our students have already created new revenue streams with land and added six figures to their incomes. Speaker3: [00:14:18] We've had clients who have achieved multiple six figures in their first year of business. Another pay for all his coaching and pocketed 15 grand on his first deal. Now, not everybody has these kinds of results, but they're certainly possible if you have the right instruction, the right support and highly experienced mentors. Speaker4: [00:14:40] You don't need another course that promises the moon and then delivers an elementary school education. You need a proven program suitable to your experience and ambition. You need a land MBA. The Land MBA is everything you need to blow it out in the land, business, courseware, mentorship, tools, community and even deal funding. Look, because you're here listening to me, you know that Dave and I don't hold anything back. That's a founding principle we've had from the beginning with the land MBA. You get everything we have to offer. There are no upsells, and now through popular demand, we have transformed our highly regarded one to one coaching program into a small group format at a fraction of the price. If you're ready to build a six figure income with the freedom of being your own boss, go right now to WW W Land NBA fortune. That's WW W Land, NBA fortune. Let us help you create your next path to wealth. Speaker2: [00:15:44] So talk about the types. Let's talk about the stages of data, and this, I think, gets into a little bit of the meat for the land investor because it's more about the process. Speaker1: [00:15:56] Yeah. So this is definitely not going to be a discussion of pure data science. I, I think I might have mentioned once before that when in my last corporate job, the first person I hired was a PhD data scientist and utterly brilliant. I'm still quite the novice in this area, but everything I know she taught me, so I probably will not be getting, you know, it won't be perfectly complete in my definition is maybe a little bit wrong. But what I tried, what I'm trying to do here is pull out those things that are meaningful to the in community and using words that I think would be meaningful to the land community. So the first thing that we want to do with data is acquire it. We have to get it from somewhere and we're probably not going out and getting it ourselves. So it's usually it starts with some kind of government data or some kind of an aggregated data, whether it's from a data tree or Zillow or from wherever. The next thing that we want to do is we want to clean that data and I'll go into all these in a little bit more detail. But the next thing we want to do is clean the data and that is so important. It's the one thing that I think a lot of land investors may not take quite as seriously as they should. It's definitely an opportunity for improvement. Speaker1: [00:17:20] And then the next thing we want to do is once we have clean data is we want to analyze it so that we can understand it. And that's where this whole qualitative and quantitative analysis comes in. And then we want to report on it or use it. So acquisition really starts with where are we getting this stuff from? So let's just say we're talking about a mailing list, right? We create a mailing list in data tree, right? I create this list for people all the time. At the end of the day, the next question you want to ask is worse data tree getting the data from. Well, they're getting it from the county. Well, how good's the data? That really depends on the county because they're they're actually the ones that are collecting it. So what is the data? The data represents their records of who owns what. So hopefully they're maintaining good records. But, you know, sometimes they're not. And and some, you know, a lot of times people pass away, people move. How well is that data maintained over time? You know, are they are they capturing that information? Sometimes good, sometimes bad. When we've, you know, for those of us that have been in enough counties and enough states, you know, we know that there are some places that just have great data like Florida's data is amazing, probably the best data in the entire country. Speaker1: [00:18:42] But there are other places where it's just not so good. I did. I was working on a deal in Costa County, Colorado, and give me an example of how data can really trip you up. Is what I if you want to know, the size of the property in Castilla. It's kind of a manual process. You have to go look into the legal description to find it. So I did that, and so I had and I had a V.A. do that, and so I sent my mailers out based upon that. Well, then I had an opportunity come in person, was all excited. And I went to the GIS system and I actually put a polygon on the property and the size of the property was an order of magnitude different than what was in the legal description when I pulled it up on the GIS system. So I called the county and I'm like, What's going on with this? It's like, Oh yeah, those two systems don't talk to each other. I think it's so I basically had priced the property on an incorrect size because that was what was in the data. So data is very imperfect and the more we clean it, the better it's going to be. So we need to be conscious of where we're getting it. I'll give you another example is I generally would never provide lists to people in the Carolinas and probably Georgia as well, because no matter when I when I click the buttons and say, look at I only want vacant land and then I'll say, Look, I want it where the living square foot footage is zero and I do all kinds of little things in there to try to make sure I'm only getting vacant land. Speaker1: [00:20:22] But invariably a lot of the data that comes back has a building on it. And that's just because the nature of their data and how it's presented, so it's so hard that I don't even provide lists there anymore. You know, if I was going to invest there myself, I would have to figure out how to overcome that. But just using like a data tree, it's very, very difficult. So that's acquisition. You want to know where where are your sources of data are? What it's going to cost, how you're going to get it, what format it's going to come in? Is it going to come in as an Excel spreadsheet? Is it going to come in as a CSV? Is it going to come as a PDF, as a word document data? You know, I've gotten a delinquent tax list and they're literally photographic PDFs. And the only way to get make anything value about it, you've got to give it to somebody like a VA and have them transcribing, which then leads to potential human error. Speaker2: [00:21:15] Right, right, you know, I had one of those same Castilla County when I was first starting maybe the third or fourth property I did and I missed that acreage thing and I actually so my offer was based on 40 acres. And after I bought it, I discovered it was about 20 acres. Speaker1: [00:21:35] Oops. Speaker2: [00:21:37] Yeah. Luckily, I bought it cheaply enough to where I was able to, you know, bail out of it and still make a little bit of money. But yeah, it could have been bad. Speaker1: [00:21:45] Yeah, so. So when you collect that data, if you just use it and you don't like, clean it up or check it, you could get yourself into trouble. And that's where that great little acronym comes in. Guy, go. Garbage in, garbage out. So all data, I don't care how good it is, needs to be looked at, needs to be cleaned up. And so that gets to the next step, which is cleaning the data. Sometimes in our business, we just call it scrubbing, scrubbing, but scrubbing is not perfectly. It's not the perfect word for it because a lot of times what we mean by scrubbing is I want to eliminate records that are not of interest to me. It's not my strategy. It's too expensive. It's the size is wrong, whatever it is. So I want to just have the columns. Yeah. Well, so formatting columns, that would be an example of cleaning, but refer Speaker2: [00:22:37] To the scrubbing. Speaker1: [00:22:39] Yeah, exactly. No, it's true. So it kind of scrubbing encompasses all of that. But normally cleaning would just mean getting the data in good shape. Right. So an example would be maybe you pulled the data down and has the entire mailing address as one field. So you've got this this the street city state zip, all is one field. But when you want to get to the mailing, the way you're mailing set up is you really want those in separate. You also I want one for street address, one for city, one for state, one for ZIP. So how do you break that up? And that becomes a whole kind of Excel formula exercise. But that's an example of of cleaning the data. The other the other. Another aspect of cleaning is is augmentation. Sometimes when you get the data, it doesn't have everything you need in it. And so you've got to find another source of data that has the information you need and then find a common key. So like maybe based on the APM, if they if these two data sets have the same APN, then I can take my first data set, create some new fields and bring in the extra data from the second data set Speaker2: [00:23:45] By skip tracing. Speaker1: [00:23:46] Skip tracing is a great example of that. You know, maybe I want to add email addresses and phone numbers into my data, right? Speaker2: [00:23:52] So maybe I want to do that because I want to do SMS campaigns in addition to to direct mail. Yeah, yeah, for sure. Very good. So we've talked about so we've got where where is data used in the land business? We talked about creating a mailer and scrubbing that data, cleaning that data. So. We want to use it for county selection area selection, pricing, property analysis, so in county selection, you know, state and county selection. What are some of the key pieces of data that we would use to decide on a place to invest? Speaker1: [00:24:43] I think that the answer to the number of answers to that question is equal to the number of land investors out there. I know how we do it and how we teach it. And I, because I like data, I like to get as comprehensive as I can. Some people think, you know, some people are, you know, a little bit more of let me throw a dart at the at the dart at the map and see where it lands. But I think that the two most important metrics I care about are how how active is the county with relationship to buying and selling raw land. And the second one is how fast are properties moving? Are they sitting for six months or are they selling rather quickly? Those two are head and shoulders above everything else. Everything else becomes qualitative. Right. So now I might say, what's the quality of the land there? What's going on? I shouldn't say it's not all qualitative, but what's going on in terms of job growth or unemployment. What's going on with the economy is what's going on with demographics are more one of the one of the metrics I always like is net migration, which would be the amount of people moving in versus the amount of people moving out of that county. Speaker2: [00:26:05] And let me let me just interject there because I think it's really important for the state as far as because I want to see sales growth in the county, right? Speaker1: [00:26:16] Absolutely. Activity, but Speaker2: [00:26:18] That county where people have bought a lot of recreational lots or lots that they want to do something, build something on some day, you could still have negative net migration in that county. But the county next door has or two counties over, which is kind of in that two to three hour perimeter for the vacation home for the weekend has migration growth. But the actual county that you're looking to buy in is could have negative migration. So that one is when you got to kind of take with a little bit of a grain of salt. Speaker1: [00:26:56] I think that's the interesting thing is we, you know, we didn't get into too much detail about how to do analysis and the reporting and all of that. There are many factors that can go into an analysis and then you can weight the factors and say this one's more important than that one and you can score. I tried to do this when I first got in the business. I'm like, Oh, I'm going to use data, I'm going to, I'm going to blow it out. And I created this massive, massive spreadsheet. It had every county in the country, all three thousand one hundred and fourteen of them. And then I collected I just pulled in all this information from the U.S. Census Bureau and Land Watch and from all these other sources. And I created this massive spreadsheet with all of these metrics, and then I waited each of the metrics so that I could give each county a score of what I thought would be like the perfect county for land. And then I could just fill. I could sort it, and then I can say OK in any given state. This is that this is the order of from the best of the worst. Or I could do it nationally and say this is from one all the way to three thousand one hundred and fourteen. And boy, that didn't work. Speaker1: [00:28:04] So but you know, you figure out what matters to you and sometimes, you know, and that's a really good point is, you know, I like net migration. My belief is that if a county has started out with the most important things, right, if it has a lot of activity, if properties are moving fast, then a positive net migration will only over time will only improve that. The other point that you made, which is which is great, is sales growth. You know, if you put those things together, then a positive net. If I have two counties that are kind of comparable in terms of activity and sales growth in the rest, and one has a positive net migration, when has a negative net migration, I probably would lean to the one that has the positive migration, but that's only if all things are equal. So you have to look at all of the different kind of factors and then in in the totality and then you can make a decision. And that's where that's where the human part comes in. It's about the analysis and you're looking at that data. Through the lens of your strategy. So two people could look at the same data based upon looking at five, six, seven different counties and come up with different conclusions based upon what their strategy is. Speaker2: [00:29:25] Hey, folks, people often talk about automating and outsourcing your land flipping business, but what does that really mean? Generic solutions leave it to you to figure out how to set up and maintain the automations. I've been running my land business on land speed for over three years because it's a total solution and allows me to focus on being a great land investor. Land speed was built specifically for land investing by land investor and with many of the most successful people in the business using it for years. It's evolved into one of the most feature rich solutions on the market. Some of the key benefits I get are being able to create and manage mail campaigns and neighbor letters. I'm able to automate tasks amongst my team, create contracts and deeds and email text or mail them within a few clicks. I can automatically capture sales leads from any lead source, including Facebook Messenger. Then it automatically pushes those leads into my sales funnel so that I can manually follow up, but they also go into my automated drip campaign. And since Lance Speed's a total cloud based solution, I can run my business from anywhere in the world with a phone, laptop or tablet. So if you want to. Turn your hobby into a professional, scalable business. Just go to land speed, techno forward slash Dave to receive one hundred and fifty dollars discount today. We've got that. Speaker2: [00:30:53] We've covered four county area selection, some of the some of the key metrics that we want to look at. And then, of course, obviously for pricing. And then once we get a deal in, we want to be able to look at so when you're pricing your your list, you're looking much more comprehensively at at the comp data. It. I mean, a lot of people will, you know, print a map and write down values on an area of map, a map and kind of figure out the average price per acre and go. And in those areas and then others will just, you know, price the whole county based on a price per acre. And, you know, throw enough dang on the wall and see what sticks and others will get down much more micro and price small areas on the map so they can get more accurate and more concise on their pricing. That's very time consuming, and I'm just going to plug a little tool that you make that I love to use for that. And it's called Price Boss, and it's very helpful for letting you capture a lot of data off of sites like Zillow and Lands of America and figuring out the median price per acre. Setting up your acreage splits and pricing it, and I find that tool invaluable really helps me nail down my pricing pretty accurately. Speaker1: [00:32:32] I appreciate that. You know, this is sort of the debate of neutral offers versus blind offers, you know? So in blind offers, you put forth a lot of effort before the mailing goes out. In Neutral offers, you put forth a lot of effort after the mailings go out. And but the trick is, you know, for me with pricing, when you're doing blind offers or even range to offers, the goal is to get as accurate as you can possibly get without killing yourself. Because you know that only half one at the match three percent of a list is going to convert. Most of them are not going to convert. So you don't want to kill yourself at the beginning. We've got to remember in our head what is the purpose of that letter? That letter, the purpose of that letter is to generate a conversation. Speaker2: [00:33:26] Yes, exactly. What you talking about is getting lost in analysis paralysis, right? You know, we can we can. We can over scrutinize and overanalyze the data. And I mean. It's something that you learn over time, because pricing Mailer's is is, you know, again, it's a lot of art mixed with science. And, you know, sometimes you've got areas where you've got lots of comparables and you can plug those in and feel pretty confident that you're in the ballpark. And that's just it. You're trying to get close enough to get people on the phone and have a conversation. And inevitably, I don't care whether you're going to piss some people off and it's just part of the business and you're going to price some way too high and get a bunch of calls like, Hell, yes, I'll take that offer. It's the best offer I've had in years, you know? And then you go and you look at it and you're like, Oh yeah, I screwed that one up, and then you try to walk it back. And you know, many times that's successful. Many times it's not. But you had a conversation. Speaker1: [00:34:38] Yeah, when I first got into the business, the guidance that I received was go find a couple of comps, you know, maybe five to 10 comps off of Craig's List, maybe LaneWatch, average them together. Figure out, you know, and then and then basically price your county based upon that, the whole county. And it was. And so you kind of had to. There was two primary methods back then. It was OK. Everybody in the county gets a $500 offer. Or everybody in the county gets a two hundred and fifty dollars per acre offer, and I just multiply it times the parcel size to get my actual offer. And in both those cases, it's just horrible. And what's horrible about it is it generates a ton of missed opportunity because what's going to happen in that situation is there will be a sliver of properties where your pricing is pretty close to being right. A sliver. And it was a reasonable chance you'll get a call from those people. Then there's going to be this huge group of people where the price is way too low. And they're either going to throw it in the trash or they're going to call you and tell you how much they hate your guts. Either case, you know, you're not getting deals out of it, and it kind of wastes some time and then you're going have this big group of properties that are way overpriced, in which case your phone's going to be ringing off the hook and you're going to realize you're not able to actually do those deals once you get into due diligence because those prices will not yield a profit. Speaker1: [00:36:10] So if you can get a very good ballpark right before you send your letters out, then fewer are going to end up in the trash can. And in the some of those that would have otherwise ended up with the trashcan may actually call you and you can get more deals out of it, and it'll save you a bunch of time because your phone's not going to be ringing with a bunch of deals that you're not going to be able to do anyway. So it saves time and it will get you more deals. The trick is to be able to do that without killing yourself, and that's why you need tools. There's there's a few different ones on the market right now. I think they're all pretty good. Obviously partial to to price boss. And the primary reason I'm kind of partial to price boss is because. Everything's everything is built on assumptions, right? So, for example, when you get a set of comps from Zillow or Lens of America or the county, wherever you're getting them from, some of those comps won't make any sense. Speaker1: [00:37:15] Right? Let's just say it was a family transaction. Ok, I sold this property for one hundred bucks. You know, it's worth $50000. That doesn't make any sense. Sometimes it goes the other way. Sometimes they're trying to shift for tax reasons. They move it to another entity, and so they sell it for some, for more than it's worth. That happens from time to time. Do, or sometimes a property sells just for more than it's worth. But it's it doesn't make any sense when you look at the larger market and those are called outliers, and you definitely want to pull outliers out before you do your full analysis and say, OK, this is the price per acre for this group of properties. What is an outlier and what isn't an outlier? Well, it's very difficult for machines to figure that out. It can be done, but it's built on assumptions. Sometimes those assumptions are right, and sometimes they're wrong. You brought what? You brought a real interesting up one time, Dave, about the situation where what happens if there are multiple properties on a single deed? It really screws everything up. Speaker2: [00:38:21] Yeah, yeah, exactly. So for example, you know, you'll see this on if you're looking at Zillow sold and if you have data tree up with with the sales and sales turned on, you may find a cluster of properties two or three or four or five properties I've seen that are sold very close to each other, and they have they all have the exact same price. Well, if you're just using an AI tool to scrape that data, you're going to let's say these, let's say you've got twenty five thousand dollars and you've got, you know, five properties that also for four, twenty five thousand, you're like, Oh, that's great. You scrape that in, well, the the the software is going to interpret that as, you know, twenty five thousand cops, twenty five thousand dollars each. And but if you if you click on them, for example, in data tree, you'll see that, oh, it was the same buyer for all of these. So they essentially bought all five of those properties for twenty five thousand. So your actual comp is five thousand. Right? And so that can that can fool you. And so that and I am not sure that some of these automated tools are taking that into account when it happens. You can do that in price plus, I mean, it still can slip by you, but it's something that you have an opportunity to manually manipulate that and delete those fields if it looks fishy, fishy to you. But it's something that I it fooled me. I didn't catch it until, you know, probably only about a year ago, and I've been in this business for six years. Speaker1: [00:40:12] So, yeah, I mean, when you talk about cleaning data, this is especially true in pricing because let's just say I've got two price two properties and they translate into the same price per acre. Well. If they are to properties and that's valid, what if they're the same property, it's just a duplicate data. It actually manipulates your number and makes it too high or too low because you're you're counting too many properties that that aren't real. And so that happens again, this it's important to understand where your data is coming from. So Land Watch Lands of America land a farmer, all the same company now and not all, but most properties that go into that system are syndicated across all the platforms. So if you pull data from Land Watch and from Lands of America, you're going to end up with a lot of duplicate data. Sometimes people just post multiple times. So what we did in price bosses, we set it up so that you can sort it, and it basically highlights where all your duplicates are. So you can look at that and say, Is this really a duplicate or is it not? If it is, you delete it again. You know, machines can do some of that, but it's built on assumptions and sometimes it's right and sometimes it's wrong. And if you don't have the ability to kind of go in there and put your own little decision making on it, you know, you get what you get. Speaker1: [00:41:32] I like I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to data. I like to see it so. So I like to take that out. And then what? What what we do is we create a graph called a scatter plot in one on one access. It'll just have acreage. So it'll go anywhere, you know, can go from whatever range you put in there, but say zero to a thousand acres on on the x axis and on the y axis, it has price per acre. And so what you'll see is that across all the comps that you've collected, it tends to build clusters. But it also will show you on this on this scatter plot, those properties that are way, way up high or way way too low, and they're not part of any clusters. And those are most likely your outliers, so you can easily find them and make a decision, whether you keep them or or you get rid of them. And that's the cleaning part of it, and it takes a bit of time and effort. But the more you do it, the better you get at it and the less time it takes you. But once you've done it, boom, you know you're ready to get some very accurate pricing. And with that, hopefully you'll get more property, more deals and less wasted time. Speaker2: [00:42:40] Right. So I just want to bring up one more piece of data that I think is important that we for tracking and deciding where we spend our marketing dollars and in this business and that is, you know, tracking where your leads are coming from. If you are set up with the various sources, like if you have a Lancome account, you know you're going to have leads coming from the three different lands of America land and farm and land watch and then maybe use land flip. Maybe you do some Facebook and some Craigslist and any other source that you have. It's really good to measure how many leads are coming from from these sources and which ones have the highest rate of conversion as well. Like, we know that, for example, Facebook, you get a high number of leads, but the quality of lead may not be that great. And so it's really good to measure. You know, Facebook has become Facebook Marketplace and groups has become a very challenging place to market, and it now is very labor intensive. They flag you, they shut you down and and things like that. So, you know, I recently analyzed my my data on the number of leads, but not just the number of leads, the number of properties that we actually converted on Facebook and just decided it's not worth the effort anymore, at least not the way we were doing it. Speaker2: [00:44:16] And so I'd rather take the labor that I was paying, even though Facebook's free you get, even if you're, you know, paying a cheap VA, I was still spending, you know, two $300 a month on that VA for posting in Facebook. And so you have to take a look and go, Well, maybe it's more advantageous if I take that than a couple hundred bucks and and increase my exposure on land or land, flip and do some of their boosts there and things like that, or flat fee meals. So you want to be able to have a tool, a system that measures where those leads are coming from. I'm going to plug land speed again as that's all my leads come in and they automatically tick off the box. You know where, where the lead come from. And so I have a ledger on the left hand side that shows my my lead count. And then I can also show, you know, which which leads source converted. And that's a very good piece of data to track to know which is my best lead source, not just for leads but also converting them and where I spend my marketing money. Speaker1: [00:45:31] You know, it's a real it's just a really good point that you made, which is there's there's how many leads are generated and then how many convert. And so you collect the data. But when you get to the analysis and the reporting side of things it's about, we don't need to collect and analyze and report unless it's going to actually lead to decisions that improve our business. Otherwise you just doing it for the sake of doing it because you like data. That's all fine. But you know, we want to exert ourselves in ways that are going to improve our business. So, you know, it starts with asking the right questions. You know, if you start to say, OK, you know, what are the what channels are working best for me? What matters most? I mean, is it leads or is it is it conversions? While I would argue it's conversions. So that would, you know, that would be a great example of that. And yeah, so I mean, it all starts with asking the right questions. Speaker2: [00:46:30] Yeah. You know, because it all it all translates into labor as well, right? Because if I'm getting just like the Facebook example, if I'm getting a lot of leads, but none of them are converting, I mean, those leads got to be followed up, and some of them are just depends on how you handle your leads and how you rank them. You know, sometimes if they're just an email that came in and I just let it go to the auto responder if it's Facebook. But you know, if somebody gives me a phone number, they're getting a call, you know, so it's and they're getting a manual email on top of the auto responder. So, you know, if the lead quality is really crappy from a certain. Source, you either want to. Stop that source altogether or just, you know, put them on automation period and don't do a manual follow up. So all of these points of data are control how you operate your business and, you know, think about the parade or principle all the time, right? 80. 20. Yeah. Great point. All right, I think we beat the horse dead. Speaker1: [00:47:39] I love it. Well, this is an important horse. And if you don't master data and you don't, you know, if you've got kind of a background in this and you've played around on Excel spreadsheets and things like that, it's probably not going to be terribly hard for you to to master it within this business if you don't have that background. It's just one of those areas you want to make sure that you are. You are improving all the time because the better we are with data, the better this business is going to run. It's just there's just no way around that. It is, you know, one of the five most important skills to pay the bills. Speaker2: [00:48:19] All right. That was a great talk. We'll talk to you soon. Adios, everybody. Speaker4: [00:48:24] Yeah, we hope you enjoyed this episode. Had a bit of fun and walked away with some actionable insights that you can apply to your business.

Show Notes:On this episode of the Unhashed Podcast, we talk Solana node troubles, Evergrande instability, Robinhood crypto withdrawals, how to pronounce Erdogan's first name, and how Ryan Selkis hates when you don't buy tickets to his events. BREAKING NEWS Friend of the show Riccardo 'œFluffy Pony' Spagni is out of Jail! Congrats Fuffy. In a tweet, Fuffy says 'œI am very pleased that the U.S. court has released me. I am actively working with my attorneys on a way to return to South Africa as soon as possible so I can address this matter and get it behind me once and for all. That's what I've always wanted to do.'On September 14, Solana node operators are coordinating a 'œrestart' of the high-speed blockchain Tuesday in an attempt to bring the stuttering network back online. 'œThe validator community elected to coordinate a restart of the network' and is preparing a 'œnew release' that will right the frozen blockchain, according to an afternoon tweet from the Solana Foundation. In Solana's Discord server, developers distributed restart instructions at 3:21 p.m. Eastern time. The outage began early Tuesday after 'œresource exhaustion' on the network brought blockchain validation to an hours-long halt. On-chain activity froze across Solana's multibillion-dollar ecosystem of trading, staking and lending projects.A source familiar with the matter told CoinDesk that the outage 'œimpacts everything built on Solana, but the issue is the underlying [layer 1].'Tuesday's outage came amid booming interest in Solana, a network seeking to attract Wall Street usage whose token has been on fire since late August. Investors have flocked to Solana as a low-fee platform for decentralized finance (DeFi). The disruption was caused by bot trading of Grape Protocol's Tuesday token offering, founder Anatoly Yakovenko said on Twitter. It is the second time in two weeks that Solana's mainnet cluster experienced 'œinstability,' according to a Messari research note reviewed by CoinDesk. A flood of transactions pushed the network past its limits early Tuesday, Solana's status account tweeted shortly after 3 p.m. Eastern time. The activity triggered a forking that knocked multiple nodes offline. Engineers tried and failed to triage the problem, according to Solana. It's not unheard of for blockchain networks to experience service disruptions. Solana's mainnet is still in beta mode; it last experienced an outage in December, another source said. Last week's hiccup was also related to a resource exhaustion event. 'œIt's good for people to understand that Solana mainnet is still clearly in beta,' said a source building one of Solana's popular DeFi protocols interrupted by the outage. 'œI have faith in the Solana core contributors and validators to resolve this issue promptly.' Engineers were rushing to push a patch to Solana node runners, multiple sources told CoinDesk. Once it's ready and running across 66% of validators (a supermajority on the network) Solana is expected to come back online. Until then, the ecosystem with over $11 billion in total value locked (TVL) is in wait-and-see mode. Activity remains frozen at block #96538485. It is unclear what implications the Tuesday outage may have for Solana. One source in the developer community pointed out that some projects have time-sensitive operations, like liquidations and IDO launches. Those could become thorny the longer the network remains down. Colin put together a price quote sheet if you wanted to run a Solana node here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rc43ZdM7ocsGmxf7VgLlXubUyVlxyrj_vZpKNiHbuZU/edit?usp=sharingEvergrande is China's largest property developer and was up until recently one of the most valuable companies in the world. However, most analysts now believe Evergrande is on the verge of insolvency and won't be able to meet its mountainous debt obligations without direct government interventions within the next few weeks as it struggles to pay its 4 million subcontractors and is unable to finish properties it is holding deposits on from 1.5 million properties. The crunch occurred because of changes made by the CCP in August of 2020 to the amount of debt Chinese developers could take on. Evergrande was accepting deposits from buyers and was then leveraging that money to borrow more money to expand ops and grow. But with the new rule change, they lost access to the spigot of money. In China, real estate is almost the only asset people invest in, and sometimes it takes generations to save up enough money to make a down payment. Many Chinese people may not get their money back if they invested and put down payments on properties under development by Evergrande. What does this have to do with Bitcoin? Well, the fallout of that collapse is so large that it is affecting large swathes of investors the world over. As Evergrande's fallout affects debt markets, all other markets are affected, especially risky, speculative markets like Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. At least, that's the theory.Robinhood is finally testing Bitcoin and crypto withdrawals, as well as a new digital hot wallet, Bloomberg reported on Monday. The update comes after the past year of broad criticism of Robinhood for, among other things, not allowing users to control their own Bitcoin private keys. The firm repeatedly hinted at enabling such features without delivering any evidence that such products were being developed. Robinhood's new hot wallet and Bitcoin and crypto transfer feature announcement also comes after a mounting demand by customers. Bloomberg reported that evidence of such features has appeared in a beta version of the trading platform's iPhone app. Rather than providing photos or other evidence of such features, Bloomberg stated that 'œThe software includes a hidden image portraying a waitlist page' for users to sign up, and attributed the discovery of said features to software developer Steve Moser.Recep Erdogan '" the firebrand Turkish president '" has declared war on Bitcoin. In the aftermath of a sweeping ban on the use of cryptocurrencies back in April, the leader is aiming to assert financial control ahead of launching the digital Lira. While the central bank was not opposed to the utilisation of digital currency, Erdogan believes it faces conflict with cryptocurrencies. 'œWe are in a war against Bitcoin,' he said. 'œBecause we will continue on the road with our money, which is our fundamental identity in this matter.' The president commented during a national youth meeting with representatives from 81 Turkish provinces, following questions about the central bank's perceptions of cryptocurrencies. Many Turks have turned to cryptocurrency as a hedge on the volatility of the Lira in forex markets, and crypto has become a hot topic in Istanbul ahead of the proposal of new legislation aiming to regulate cryptocurrencies. Regulations will pave the way for the full implementation of the digital Lira, which Erdogan's government is aiming to launch by 2023.From ZeroHedge, 'œChina's War Against Crypto Is Officially Ramping Up (Again). In several Chinese provinces, inspections of companies have "intensified", with an eye toward targeting illegal mining at places like colleges, research institutions and data centers, according to the report. One miner in China told Bloomberg that his operations "remain intact" because he "regularly switches to new facilities to house his equipment" which is made up of "no more than 100 machines at one location". Hebei province has asked companies for a self-compliance check to ensure they are not mining by September 30. China has said that crypto mining would 'œseriously affect economic and social development and directly threaten national security." The statement says it would "disrupt" financial order. This news follows tighter restrictions in China across the board, from ending most visa's of foreign english teachers, limiting time on tiktok to 40 minutes per day and video game playing to three hours a week among teenagers.Self proclaimed 'œTwoBit Idiot' Ryan Selkis is running for Senate. In a tweet he stated, 'œIf you're wondering when I actually decided to run for Senate, it was when these fuckers came to my event, didn't buy a ticket, and served one of the speakers a subpoena. Enough talk. More war on our out of control regulatory state.

Twitter had fun with that story, but then Mark Cuban went public and gave us more to talk about. There were several statements that Cuban made that sparked conversation but none sparked more than Cuban saying that Luka and KP's relationship is fine because they like each other's social media posts. Between Bob and the social media topic, that would have been just enough to justify an episode but then Twitter lost its collective minds when the ESPN player rankings came out and Luka Doncic came in at #4.

Raqi talks about her Ipad Mini purchase and her use factor, Serina dives deep into Direct Touch Typing, and the entire team gets up front and personal about the Apple event, California Dreaming. We do as we do and sometimes, not as we say. (Jeff snickers as Serina crosses her arms and looks away.) What the heck is this Hero App from Ayes? Do we need a Hero? And how about Facebook and Ray Ban launching 20 styles of smart glasses? Or, are they really all that smart? Join the team from Tech Abilities in the Blind Abilities Studio and give us some feedback and/or suggestions by calling 612-367-6093. We would love to hear from you! Be sure to note that we use chapters so you can jump from topic to topic as you desire. The time stamp is also provided for reference as well.
