    Brought to you by TPUSA Faith, Charlie is LIVE from Legacy Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico with senior pastor Steve Smothermon. Charlie begins this amazing evening with TPUSA Faith by celebrating the historic overturning of Roe. v Wade with the Supreme Court's decision on Dobbs. Charlie breaks down the acronym that will help you defend your pro-life position: SLED—Size, Level of Development, Environment, and Degree of Dependency. Charlie breaks down of the left's main arguments and spends an extra amount of time on "D." Charlie then moves onto the controversial topic of the trans, gay, and LGBTQ agenda and the agenda being met upon culture. What started as a live and let live approach has quickly become a live and let them rule over you agenda. Charlie tackles the issue head on and without apology. In all of this cultural chaos, how do Christians still stand for the truth of the Gospel, biological truth, sexual truth, the truth about sin, and how to get back into alignment with God's plan?  Charlie quotes the great Clarence Thomas who famously said, "Right is still right. North is still north" as he confronted the shifting sands of culture as compared to the firmament of God's word.  Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/support See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

And the Principal and Founder of Mountain Bridge Capital, a Multifamily Investment Company specializing in apartment real estate. With a goal  to maximize returns for their investors and provide a stable income source for them over time. Colby and his team are very passionate about providing clean, comfortable housing for people across the country in need of housing.   Highlights:   [00:00 - 06:04] Colby Fryer: Multi-Family Investor, Specializing in C and B Minus Class Assets He started investing in 2013, bought six houses and then decided to get a coach and mentor to help him transition into the multifamily market. Since then, he's invested in over 136 units of multifamily, which has been an exciting journey. One of the biggest challenges he faced was learning how to overcome uncertainties when investing in C and B minus class assets. He recommends reaching out to family and friends for help when starting out, networking with brokers, and doing your due diligence. [06:05 - 11:49] Colby's 4,000 Door Goal Colby's team is now focusing on turning the property around and getting it rented again. They are expecting to increase rents by 50%. He shares that they are looking to transition out of the real estate business within the next few years. [11:49 - 17:33] How to Succeed in the Real Estate Market in Today's Economy Colby discusses how he scaled into the multifamily space, from no deals to 136 units in a year and a half He recommends starting with lower returns, but going with something that is already done if possible Mentorship is key, selecting someone who is not a guru but will be a mentor [17:34 - 18:50] Closing Segment Reach out to Colby Links Below Final Words   Tweetable Quotes   “I think once you start doing it and you talk to a few people, it gets easier and easier.

What you're really doing and you have to come up with that new identity. [00:00:12] Colby Fryar: I'm a, apartment investor now I'm not civil engineer. I'm not whatever else you have to identify that with yourself and when you do that, That really changes the game for you and helps you to connect with people. And people want to help you if they trust you and they like what you're doing. [00:00:29] Sam Wilson: Colby fryer is a multi-family investor, specializing in C and B minus class assets. Anything over a hundred units, Colby. [00:00:49] Sam Wilson: Welcome to the show.  [00:00:49] Colby Fryar: Awesome. Thank you for having me, man. Appreciate  [00:00:52] Sam Wilson: the opportunity. The pleasure's mine. Three questions. I ask every guest who comes in the show in 90 seconds or last, can you tell me, where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get.  [00:01:00] Colby Fryar: My background's in civil engineering doing a lot of construction project management. [00:01:05] Colby Fryar: So it really transitioned well into what I'm doing. In, multifamily. So we started investing in single family in 2013 bought six, six houses and then decided, well, that's not scaling as much as we like to be. So jumped in, got a coach and a mentor and over a year and a half ago. And. Right now we're sitting at over 136 doors of multifamily. [00:01:29] Colby Fryar: So it's been a journey, really exciting.  [00:01:31] Sam Wilson: I'm sure it has. I mean, going for C and B minus class assets and coming from the engineering perspective, everything I know about engineers tells me that you guys really like to know. Like to a very, very fine degree, what it is that's going on. You're getting into C and B minus or class assets and there's quite a bit of uncertainty, I would think sometimes when you're investing in those projects, how do you overcome that? [00:01:57] Sam Wilson: Yeah, so  [00:01:58] Colby Fryar: It was huge to have the guidance of a coach and a mentor through the process. Somebody that had been through that a little. But yeah, there was definitely some challenges to learn and having that engineering background, you like everything lined out and kind of organized in a package and this business is not that way. [00:02:18] Colby Fryar: You kind of put things together on the run and, it's crazy sometimes but well worth it just a lot of challenges to overcome  [00:02:25] Sam Wilson: for sure. Right. And having a mentor is one thing. What do you feel like some of the questions were that you had early on that were like, I guess, things that made you concerned about your next steps in this business. [00:02:38] Colby Fryar: some of the big things were how are we gonna get money? how are we gonna find the deals, all those things that you have to wrap your head around. And, you kind of have to do a little bit , of both. And so the big thing for us was to start reaching out to family and friends and just let 'em know what you're doing. [00:02:56] Colby Fryar: Tell everybody, and so you start to build those relationships, start to network with people. , and that was really big for our first capital race that we did. , but at the same time, you're, meeting with brokers and so I find that's important for an investor. You don't want to just be a one trick pony show. [00:03:13] Colby Fryar: Or have one, wear one hat per se. You want to be able to do multiple things when you're starting out. I think that drives a lot of value, brings a lot of value to a team in order to get involved in this business. How did you  [00:03:27] Sam Wilson: select your first market?  [00:03:30] Colby Fryar: So our market kind of came through my network and the mentorship group that I was in. [00:03:35] Colby Fryar: Also I'm from New Mexico. So I grew up there and knew Albuquerque well, which was our first multifamily asset that we purchased. And then Las Cruces. I went to college there. So a lot of background in the state and familiarity with the market. And so that, that really helped.  [00:03:55] Sam Wilson: Right, right. [00:03:56] Sam Wilson: absolutely does help. Tell me about this. I mean, know, you went from single family investor in 2013 and 2019, or I can't remember when you said it was, but you decided, Hey you're gonna go into multifamily. Was there ever consideration of any other commercial real estate asset classes? [00:04:09] Colby Fryar: not really. I. looked at mobile home parks. I had looked at a little bit of office space in terms of businesses and that sort of thing, really like the mobile home parks and not opposed to that may do that someday. Storage. I've seen that a little bit, but I think multifamily was really what we wanted to focus on. [00:04:29] Colby Fryar: I think you can get, if you start looking at too many things, you get that, shiny object syndrome. And then, and I think that takes away from your focus sometimes. And I think, especially to start with, you need to just focus on one. And that was why we went with multifamily. Just great asset, I think in terms of cash flow, stability through recessions just can't beat it. [00:04:52] Colby Fryar: Right. And  [00:04:53] Sam Wilson: that's why we chose it. Absolutely buying C or C and B minus assets, probably more in the C class assets. This question may be framed, but how did you know, I guess when you're looking at those assets, there, there can be in what we call a lot of hair on the. How did you know, you could turn 'em around. [00:05:09] Colby Fryar: Yeah. That that's a good point. And we always heard that you gotta be really careful when you go into those types of deals. especially on the C class, you gotta really do your due diligence, but, our main focus was just really trying to get a deal. And this seemed like a great opportunity. [00:05:27] Colby Fryar: And that's the thing with these C assets is even though there's a lot of hair out on 'em, there's a lot of opportunity there because you have the value add. And so if you can turn those assets around, you can typically get 'em at a pretty reasonable price and then drive that value, increase the value which can really help your investors. [00:05:45] Colby Fryar: Now. Other side of that, there is increased risk with those investments which we've learned a lot about.  [00:05:51] Sam Wilson: Tell us a little bit about that. I mean, is there anything you can, as you kind of review, the last year and a half, is there anything you feel like you could've done better or that you would do differently? [00:06:01] Sam Wilson: Yeah,  [00:06:01] Colby Fryar: I think during our due diligence, we could have done a lot better job. There was some things there we could have seen. And I'm talking about our bigger deal in New Mexico that we did. It was a syndication. This particular deal, like you said, had a lot of hair on it. and when we visited the properties and did our inspections, I think we missed out on, on seeing some of the issues there were, that were there with tenants. [00:06:24] Colby Fryar: We had some, some problem tenants that we had that we're having to deal with now. And, there was some signs we missed, like broken windows and other things that, that could have really helped us when we started.  [00:06:38] Sam Wilson: What would you do in that case? If you could go back and say, Hey, look, there's problems, tenant it's on this property, you see these broken windows. [00:06:45] Sam Wilson: How would that have changed the conversation either with the seller, with the broker or even amongst your team [00:06:50] Colby Fryar: Yeah. And we did have those conversations. Some of it was going on, but I think, I Really would've got some like a contractor or really know person that was knowledgeable in that space property manager to go visit the property with us and really give us an idea of, Hey what exactly are we gonna run into here? [00:07:08] Colby Fryar: And, that, that would've really helped. Of course you never know exactly. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut, but. But I think that's what we would've done differently, for  [00:07:17] Sam Wilson: sure. Right. And so let's say they came to you and said, all right, Colby, you got some problem tenants here. It looks like you're gonna have a really hard time collecting rent from them. [00:07:26] Sam Wilson: You may have a higher than normal vacancy. What would've been your next step as you look to the deal.  [00:07:30] Colby Fryar: we probably would absolutely have gone to the seller and, talked to him about how we could possibly resolve some of those issues. Maybe negotiate on the price. That sort of thing. Yeah. I think that would've been really good. [00:07:44] Sam Wilson: So I guess, what steps then let's ask this, what are you guys doing now? What's your active plan? Because these are things that people can learn from and say, oh man, they've got vacancy to property. You've got problem tenants New Mexico, as far as I know, isn't necessarily a landlord friendly state. [00:08:00] Sam Wilson: Maybe correct me if I'm wrong. I don't own anything in New Mexico. But, what's the plan going forward? How do you guys overcome those challenges now?  [00:08:06] Colby Fryar: Yeah it's sort of in between, it's not landlord friendly, but it's not tenant friendly, the most tenant friendly. Okay. But, yeah, so the steps that we're taking now is, we, our property managers done a great job of getting problem tenants out. [00:08:20] Colby Fryar: And so our effort now is just really focused on market. Advertising and filling up our units and turning the units, getting those ready to go. So we do have a little bit higher vacancy, but that's our main focus is turning that around as quickly as possible.  [00:08:37] Sam Wilson: Right. Right. And have you guys been able to achieve rent bumps with this property as you do renovations? [00:08:43] Sam Wilson: I mean, is that the  [00:08:44] Colby Fryar: value you add plan? Yeah, there's been for renters there, so that's been good. So our, we expected to increase our rent to six 50 for one bedrooms and seven 50 for two bedrooms at this property. And we've been able to do that very successfully. That's  [00:09:00] Sam Wilson: really cool. [00:09:02] Sam Wilson: That's really cool. Tell me about raising money. I know you said that you've gone out, you've talked to all your investors or family and friends. Was that a hard conversation initially? Especially without a track record in the space or what how did you work that out?  [00:09:15] Colby Fryar: Yeah it is it's, especially coming from an engineer, more of a introverted type person. [00:09:21] Colby Fryar: So it's, it's something that's a challenge for sure. And, but I think once you start doing it and you talk to a few people, it gets easier and easier. And, I think you just gotta own up to who you are and. What you're really doing and you have to come up with that new identity. [00:09:37] Colby Fryar: I'm a apartment investor. Now I'm not civil engineer. I'm not whatever else you have to identify that with yourself. And when you do That really changes the game for you and helps you to connect with people. And they, people want to help you if they trust you and they like what you're doing. [00:09:54] Sam Wilson: Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. Coming from the civil engineering background was what was the tipping point for you? And you could walk away from being a civil engineer and go directly in actually  [00:10:05] Colby Fryar: haven't walked away, still doing that, but, still working the W2. my plan is to transition out over the next couple of years. [00:10:11] Colby Fryar: but you know, that's kind of a tough thing too. Cuz when you're still working, people are gonna ask you. Oh, so what do you doing? I mean, you gotta tell 'em. But it's not the first thing I identify with. I always say I'm investing in multi-family properties. Right. And if they ask and I say, yeah, it still work, but I'm transitioning out over time. [00:10:30] Sam Wilson: Right, I think that's great. And that's a good point. what's the plan for that? Have you hit a certain say, Hey, when we hit a certain revenue number, when we hit a certain number of assets under management, I mean, is there, have you kind of built the plan for the exit or is it really when you want to. [00:10:44] Colby Fryar: Yeah it's a plan. My plan is 4,000 doors in like in five years, I would like to obviously do less, less years for that, but that's the goal and what I'm pushing towards. And I think that would be the number that would offset set of income. Really, what I define as a success in this business is replacing. [00:11:05] Colby Fryar: Income that I'm making now with the passive income from real estate. And at that it's not the number of doors. It's not the money. It's just really will I, can I support myself and my family off the real estate and not have the job anymore? That's it right there.  [00:11:21] Sam Wilson: Right. 4,000 doors in five years. [00:11:23] Sam Wilson: That is, an amazing goal. I love it. How did you guys select that number and what do you feel like you were going to do to achieve that goal?  [00:11:33] Colby Fryar: Yeah, so the thought was, based on that number of doors and the income off of that using the syndication model that would offset my current income that I'm making. [00:11:44] Colby Fryar: It's a lot of doors for sure, but yeah, to get there, the main focus is you gotta take the baby steps. Okay. I gotta do this many deals. This year, this mini deals the next year. And so you set those goals and your priorities, and then you break that down on a more frequent level. Okay. I'm gonna underwrite this mini deals a week. [00:12:02] Colby Fryar: Put in this many Lois and so you start to build out your steps towards that progression just to make sure it happens. We're  [00:12:09] Sam Wilson: seeing obviously an incredible amount of interest in really all real estate asset classes, but especially in multifamily seeing cap rates compressed, and we're also seeing rates go up, what are you guys doing in this environment to one, continue to find success. [00:12:25] Sam Wilson: And then how are you offsetting, those two kind of obstacles.  [00:12:29] Colby Fryar: Yeah, that's a very good point. And it is difficult in this environment. It seems like there's a huge disconnect in what sellers are asking and what we're able to offer. Now, I'm starting to see that more and more, although they are, the sellers and the brokers are becoming aware. [00:12:45] Colby Fryar: That there is a change. But so what we're doing is to really look at ways to, to evaluate more deals. How can we scale this and really underwrite more deals? Because I think that's what it's gonna take. You're gonna have to look at more to get the one that works. It's not gonna be as easy as it was before  [00:13:04] Sam Wilson: for sure. [00:13:05] Sam Wilson: Gotcha. So underwriting more deals is one of the plans. Is there, are you guys doing additional broker outreach? Are you doing yeah. Your own off market outreach? What, is there anything on that front?  [00:13:16] Colby Fryar: More just working with more brokers and trying to build those relationships, looking at more markets to get the deal flow. [00:13:23] Colby Fryar: We're looking in Houston and other areas of Texas. Of course, New Mexico. Tucson has been a big focus of ours. We're also interested in Phoenix. We'd love to get something here in Tucson.  [00:13:35] Sam Wilson: Gotcha. Gotcha. Very good. How have you guys defined, who does, what on your team? I think you said there's five of you, is that right? [00:13:42] Sam Wilson: Yeah. So,  [00:13:43] Colby Fryar: Our team is made up of my, my partner, Danny and I we kind of handled asset management, property management, overseeing the property manager. The bank accounts and the meetings. And then also Les he helps with a lot of that. And then we have a couple other partners that help us on the money raise side, but they're active in the meetings as well. [00:14:02] Colby Fryar: So everybody has to be active on the asset management side doing something, right. So we kind of split up our duties, who handles proper manager. Handles, social media, the website different items. So we're kind of spread that out, but we really focus on the, money race part of it too. [00:14:19] Colby Fryar: All of us.  [00:14:20] Sam Wilson: Yeah. Gotcha. That is really cool. If you were to say to someone else and they said, Hey, Colby, I wanna follow in your footsteps. And I like what you've done. You've gone from no deals to having 136 units. in a year and a half. What would be the first thing you'd tell 'em to do? [00:14:36] Colby Fryar: I would say, really, you just gotta, you gotta jump in. You're not gonna find the perfect deal I think, to start with. But, I think one thing that we did that really helped on our first deals, we found a deal that, Probably wasn't, the best revenue generating deal it, it didn't look that good on paper, but it, a lot of the work was done. [00:14:59] Colby Fryar: The CapEx was done on it. There wasn't a lot of hair on it. And so I would encourage people to possibly look into that. Maybe you get lower returns, but go with something that's already done. B class, if you can try C class, a nice C class that's fully occupied with stable tenants. I think that's really important on your first deal. [00:15:19] Colby Fryar: I don't think you want to get into something with a lot of vacancy. To start off with,  [00:15:23] Sam Wilson: right? No, I think that's great. That's great advice there that there is, there is no such thing as the as the perfect deal. And I think that's what a lot of people are hunting for right now in, in, and you do need to be selective. [00:15:33] Sam Wilson: No doubt. As you said, there's, things due diligent, and I think  [00:15:36] Colby Fryar: just if it cash flows, it, it it's reasonable. And you can make it work. I think go for it. It doesn't have to be perfect.  [00:15:44] Sam Wilson: Right, right. No, I think that's great. That's absolutely great advice. Yeah. Wonderful Colby. I love what you've done. [00:15:50] Sam Wilson: Here so far, you've gone from you still are a civil engineer and successfully found a way to scale into multi-family properties. You guys are looking, you've got a clear game plan. You've got your team lined. I know you said early on that it was mentorship really, that helped you in the beginning, have the confidence to take the next steps. [00:16:07] Sam Wilson: Talk to us about that here as just kind of a closing thoughts on mentorship. How did you select cuz listen, you and I both know that there's a million, one gurus out there. How did you select somebody that wasn't a guru, but that really would be a mentor for you in the space. Yeah.  [00:16:23] Colby Fryar: So my mentor Jens, he was, I heard him on a podcast and, I liked what I heard from him. [00:16:29] Colby Fryar: He was on rod Cleves podcast. and so we connected on bigger pockets. I had looked at a few mentors and I was actually thinking about going into Rod's program and the warrior group. I know that's a great group, but, I chose this group just because I knew it would be intimate and I'd get the one on one setting with my coach and mentor. [00:16:50] Colby Fryar: And I think that's important. I also think the network. Is important. So the size of the network and the people and the experience that they think that's a big thing to consider when you go into a program. But also the experience level really reach out to somebody that has experience and make sure that they're gonna be the one that's gonna be talking to you, working with you. [00:17:11] Colby Fryar: I think that's a, a huge part of it.  [00:17:13] Sam Wilson: Right? Right. Absolutely. Absolutely. I think that's those are awesome. Very, very valid points as. Review and people, a lot of people wanna know that. I mean, there's a lot of programs out there and not, no two programs are created the same and no, no two programs are for, for everybody or no one programs for everybody. [00:17:29] Sam Wilson: So I love absolutely love hearing how you made that selection. Is there any other closing thoughts that you'd like to share with our listeners or pieces of advice that you would give them?  [00:17:38] Colby Fryar: just be persistent and keep going. Don't give. I think there's deals out there. You just gotta be willing to meet with brokers. [00:17:45] Colby Fryar: I think the big thing with brokers is to get in front of 'em sit down with them, meet 'em for lunch. And I think that'll really help. They they'll know you're serious and wanting to. you're gonna be a player , in the game,  [00:17:58] Sam Wilson: right? I think that's great Colby. If our listeners wanna get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do that?

    An introduction to note investing and self storage with Brian Hamrick

    Brian Hamrick began investing in single-family homes in 2002. During the Great Recession, he purchased his first multifamily property and has since worked with private investors to acquire apartment communities, self-storage facilities, and non-performing notes. In 2012 he founded Hamrick Investment Group ("HIG") to help other qualified investors take advantage of the lucrative returns real estate has to offer. Self-storage properties enjoy high demand from Baby Boomers in need of extra space as they downsize and from Millennials who would rather pay less for storage than pay rent for more living space. During the last decade, self-storage investment returns have outpaced most other property types, which means investors should take note.

I'm Michael Albaum and today I'm joined by Brian Hamrick with Hamrick Investment Group and Brian is going to be talking to us today about note investing, as well as self-storage investing, two topics that are super interesting. I wish I could say that they are near and dear to my heart, but I'm a total newbie at them and have no experience. So really excited to chat with him about that. So let's get into it.   Brian, what's going on, man? Good to see you again and thanks for coming on the podcast.   Brian: Appreciate you, Michael. It's great seeing you again, too. Thanks so much for having me on your show.   Michael: No, absolutely. I think we're gonna have a lot of fun today as you are a very interesting person with an interesting background. So I'd love for anyone who might not be familiar with you. Can you give us quick insight who you are, where you come from, and what is it you're doing in real estate today?   Brian: Yeah, thank you. So my, my name is Brian Hamrick. My company is Hamrick Investment Group and what I what I am I started off as a multifamily apartment investor syndicator and over the years have also expanded into performing and non performing notes, self-storage, vacation rentals, office, a little bit of retail. Basically, if I have a rockstar strategic partner that I can partner up with, I'm the one who raises the money brings the equity and I partner up with someone who's got a great track record knows how to make money in their space and that's, that's kind of my business model for the past five years.   Michael: Right on and I don't know if I've actually met or spoke to anyone that got their start with multifamily syndication? Is that really where you got your teeth cut or did you start out with single family kind of like so many of us did?   Brian: Yeah, so going way back in 2001. When I first read Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I did get started in single family. I was living in Los Angeles at the time and everything in LA back then was way overpriced. So I started investing in a network that was investing out of state. So I bought single family in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Albuquerque, New Mexico and I got my portfolio up to seven separate single family properties and quickly realize, you know what, this is the very, very slow way to financial freedom and that's when I started looking into multifamily, because I realized you can get that economy of scale by having more units under one roof.   Michael: Yep, makes total sense. Okay, well, let's shift gears here entirely and talk about note investing and self-storage and if we have time short term rentals, because it's just like a super fascinating space and we always joke in the show that these podcasts are very self-serving, I hate to ask all the self-serving question. So talk to us what is note investing and what attracted you to it initially.   Brian: So I also host a podcast and just like you, I love talking to different investors, who have different asset classes, different skills and one of the investors who came on my podcast, his name was Jean Chandler and I was just so fascinated with his systems of buying non performing notes and basically a note is like a mortgage or a land contract or a contract for deed and you're so when you buy a note, you're not buying an actual property, you're buying the paper on that property, that the IOU, and there's a lot of value to those IOUs, especially if you can buy them at a discount. So let's say there's a property that is that has $100,000 balance on their loan, and you can buy that note for $80,000, you know, 80 cents on the dollar. Well, now, whatever that interest rate was that was being paid, you're actually making more than that interest rate and if that note pays off, you know, sooner rather than later. Well, I just paid $80,000 for $100,000 note that's $20,000 that I could profit.   So Jean and I , Jean Chandler, I had him on the show and I was just really interested in notes and I had a little bit of experience With notes previously, so I called him up after the show and first of all, I said, How many people have called you, since this show has come out to invest and he said, no one's called me and I said, well, that's interesting, because I'd like to invest with you. So we started off by buying 10, different non performing notes and a non performing note is basically, if someone's not paying their loan, that and over after three months, if they're not paying, it becomes non performing. So, the, the strategy that Jean had at the time was to buy these non-performing notes, like 30 cents on the dollar and the goal is to get them re performing because if you can, if as of note is paying, say 10%, and you buy it at 30 cents on the dollar, while your yield if you can get it REIT performing is going to be well above 30%.   Michael: Holy smokes.   Brian: Yeah, so there's, there's so much value there and that delta between what you pay for note and what it's actually yielding anyway, we bought 10, non performing notes, and we lost money on two of them but our average return on all 10 notes was over 80%.   Michael: What?.... That's insane. Like, as you were describing the nonperforming of it, I'm sitting here thinking to myself, like, what do you guys like bounty hunters, you go out and they okay, you got to start paying your notes like, how do you what does that process look like to get a nonperforming to a performing because there's a reason that's being sold at a discount?   Brian: Yeah, exactly, exactly. Now, don't go out and try this on your own. That's necessary, have the experts on your team that know how to do it properly, because there's a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it but the what we're able to do as private investors quite often what Jean does, I, I leave the heavy lifting to Jean, but what he's able to do, quite often is contact the borrower directly and the larger institutions have guidelines and rules that they have to follow that, that basically puts all the borrowers in a certain box, and they have to be treated a certain way. But as private investors, Jean can call them up and just have a real conversation of person to person conversation and usually it starts with, do you want to stay in your home? Yeah, that's the first question he typically asked and then that's when kind of the guard comes down and they're like, nobody's ever asked me that before. So then gene can have a real conversation and say, Well, what is preventing you from paying your mortgage, how do we get you back on track, and sometimes that means might mean modifying the loan, so that their balance stays the same, or maybe there we take off some of the fees that have been charged over time but maybe we modify it so that their monthly payment is lower, you know, by stretching out the amortization, or we allow them to get caught up, because they just weren't getting anywhere with the previous servicer or lender.   So it starts with that conversation and quite often, that's a successful conversation and we've luckily been able to help a lot of borrowers who have had some sort of distress stay in their homes and that is our goal. But at times people go dark, you know, there's, believe it or not, there are people out there who want to be in denial, or just keep not even be consciously aware of what's going on around them and they either don't respond to us, or tell us that they're going to send us a check, and they never do. So they don't perform and in those cases, we actually go through with foreclosure and when you buy a non performing note, and we buy performing notes to but I'm focusing on buying non performing right now, when you buy a non performing note, there's two values that I like to look at. One is what's the what's the unpaid balance that is owed and then what is the actual cash value? So if you go through foreclosure, what would you sell that property for on the okay market and quite often, on average, over the years we've paid, we've paid roughly 45 cents on the dollar for the unpaid balance and 35 cents on the dollar for the actual cash value. So if we do have to foreclose, take something through that process, and then sell it. Quite often, we're seeing you know, 50 to 100%. In one case, we had a 550% return on a property we took through foreclosure.   Michael: That's on believable, Brian, I've got I have so many questions. Let's start with like, who is selling these non-performing notes? Are these coming from banks? Are these coming from other private lenders because you mentioned interest rates in the 10%? I mean, that's probably not your Bank of America, Wells Fargo type of loan, or are they?   Brian: Well, 10% is kind of the limit on that you can charge under Dodd Frank rules. So we're huge guy. Like, if we're striking a new note, it's 9.99 and the reason the reason people are willing to pay that is because these are our lower value properties, where the loan amount is under $50,000. So we're kind of in this market where the normal, the typical borrower can't go to a typical lender or bank, because banks don't want to make loans that are less than $50,000. It's the same amount of work on a loan, that they that would be a million dollars, and they make a lot more money off the million dollar loan than the 50,000 loan. So when you get to that price point, you're quite often dealing with four private company, private capital, that's making these loans. But a lot of our loans are trickling down, some of them come from Fannie Mae, and then they trickle down to hedge funds, who buy them up in bulk, you know, billion dollars to take up 1000s of loans in default are performing.   Michael: A big short, right, that's what the whole movie was about?   Brian: Yeah, exactly and yeah, and that, that that movie is a good kind of a good touchstone because a lot of the opportunities that we were seeing, and this was five years ago, that I started working with GE and a lot of those opportunities we were seeing had trickled down from the larger institutions, to the hedge funds to the private equity groups and then we were still picking them they had they had run got all their value out of them and we were then picking them up for like, 30 cents on the dollar. At that point.   Michael: Oh, my gosh…   Brian: But yeah, so they're trickle down. We're buying them typically from hedge funds and then sometimes we're we've have situations where we're we are possibly taken up a property through foreclosure. In some cases, we buy these notes, and it turns out that they're Oreos, and we've bought notes that we thought were non performing, only to find out that they're Oreos, and we own the property. It's already gone through foreclosure. In those cases, then we can turn around and resell it and generate a new note.   Michael: Interesting. So talk to me again, about that the foreclosure process specifically, because you mentioned, being able to buy the note for 45 cents on the dollar, and then the physical property for maybe 35 cents on the dollar but if you buy the note and then take the property through foreclosure, don't you then own it or is there another step involved in that process something else you have to buy or pay for?   Brian: So there again, always have an attorney to help you take through go through this process. But yes, quite often, when we take a property through foreclosure, we will end up with the property and owning the property and then we can go ahead and just sell the property. Sometimes you do have to you know, it's not it's not an easy process, because sometimes the borrower might declare bankruptcy, and that sort of sets you back, you know, six to 12 months, or whatever it takes to work through that bankruptcy. Every state has different rules and laws, and sometimes different municipalities in that state have different rules and laws. So it's always important to have an attorney who knows those rules and laws in that state, working with you through this process.   Michael: Makes total sense. Okay, man, so now let's say you, you buy the note, it continues to nonperforming take you through foreclosure, they don't declare bankruptcy, everything checks out, you own the property. I mean, literally, like your name is on the deed and title now, or like whatever entity bought the note or took it through foreclosure. So like, it's yours, you can do whatever you want with it?   Brian: It's ours and yes, we can do whatever we want with it. Quite often, we find a local broker or realtor who can just put it up on the market and sell it for us. So we I'll give you an example, we had a property and this is kind of a general example that takes into account a number of different properties. So this isn't just one specific property, but it's kind of like the typical homerun scenario that we encounter, okay and by the way, we could buy 10 notes. Two of them will be complete dogs and losers. Six of them will be breakeven or make a little bit of money, but it's those two kind of grand slam home runs out of the 10 that really make the whole thing work. So some of the winners that we've had is there was one property where we bought the note for, I think that the balance was around $35,000. Okay, we bought the note for $20,000.   Michael: And it's not you got to pay cash for this right or is there a lending institution that I'll give you?   Brian: There's no lending institution where yeah, we're we are buying our notes with cash, we pay $20,000 for a $35,000. unpaid balance really just blows my mind, and I don't understand, but that we do everything we can to contact the borrower, we will call them, we will send them mail, through the post office, we'll do whatever we can, sometimes gene will even buy a burner phone and fax it to them. So that when they open it up, there's it says call me and there's the number, and then they'll actually call on the burner phone. So he will do everything bend over backwards to establish contact. In this case, we never established contact, they never responded to us. So we went through the foreclosure process. At the end of that foreclosure process, we showed up to the house, it was broom swept in incredible condition and we listed it for $125,000 and sold it for $110,000 and this is a note that we paid 20,000 for. So after legal fees, broker fees, we ended up with about $80,000 in profit, and our money back and our original $20,000 back.   Michael: That is mind blowing. So and let me know if this is like a legal question but I'm just curious from a high level, let's say we'll use this property as an example. Let's say they bought the property for 50 grand, they pay down their mortgage over the years. So they have 15,000 and equity for the 35,000. unpaid balance and let's say you could establish contact, you knew the person you'd but you still went through foreclosure does that person lose out on their 15,000 in equity or do you have to make them whole for kind of their ownership stake in that property, you know how that works?   Brian: Yeah. So they lose that you would you would hope that that $15,000 in equity that they have is enough incentive for them to try to get that loan re performing again, right and quite often that is the case and we will we will do everything we can to work with them to make that happen but sometimes, people just they go dark, and they bury their head in the sand. They don't respond and then they end up losing the property and the equity that they have in that property, which is unfortunate but it does happen.   Michael: Wow! Well, Brian, this like a blew my mind. But let's shift gears here because you also invest in self-storage, which is another really interesting asset class, and folks at the IRS Academy have expressed some interest in learning more about it. So can you give us the high level of again, what should we know about it and what attracted you to that investment class?   Brian: Initially, self-storage, once again, is an asset class that I got into because I had a rockstar strategic partner who brought me a deal in self-storage that was just looked amazing on paper and the more I looked into it, and by the way, so this is my partner, Tim puffer in this case, he took Scott Myers course, okay, on investing in self-storage. I don't know if you know who Scott Myers is, but he's one of the trainers out there and he started cold calling self-storage facilities in the area and like the second call he made, he landed a property is 28,000 square foot with a 63,000 square foot office building and the owners were like, Yeah, we're thinking of retiring and moving to Florida. So Tim made them an offer of $1.3 million and we picked it up and we immediately a lot of times you look for the value add in self-storage and one of the value adds is when you buy a property that's been kind of mom and pop operated. You know, they've been proceeding with under the same systems for the past 10 years or so. Right. So they quite often they don't have like an online presence.   They're still doing like paper checks and mailing out bills every month. So right away, the first two things we did was we started bumping the rates up to market rate, okay, and we started putting in systems like having a website having automatic booking, you know, so someone could go to our website at 2am Lisa space, and at 2:30am, enter the their number on the keypad and get in and store their stuff. So we automated everything, so we don't need on site management. After a year of that we boosted the value of the property enough that we were able to tear down our office space 3000 square foot of office and put up another 15,000 square foot of storage, this is all drive up storage. So we brought our square footage up to 43,000 square foot, no money out of our pocket, we were basically pulling cash out from the value that we had added in just 12 months and that was about $700,000. So we got it up to 43,000 square foot and then with another two years go by this property we paid $1.3 million for we sold it for 3.5 million.   Michael: What…?   Brian: So our investors were very happy there.   Michael: That is outrageous, that's outrageous…   Brian: Yeah, self-storage is probably my favorite asset class just on the principles that it's very easy to manage quite often. Very, very, when you add value, if you have a clear path to adding value, you can add a lot of value and I liked that it's automated too. You don't have to have you. I know some people have on site people to maybe sell boxes and, and locks and stuff. But you don't have to have that you can automate that as well. So I really like self-storage from that those perspectives, that is   Michael: Just remarkable and how can people get access to those types of deals? I mean, can somebody go out and buy a self-storage facility and do this themselves? It is something that they should be thinking about doing with that experience, syndicator and operator? What are your thoughts there?   Brian: Yeah, so if they want to do it themselves, I highly recommend getting coaching from like a Scott Myers and I know there are other people out there teaching it, if they want to invest with experienced operators like myself, I'm there's a lot of us out there. So, you know, I wish I could say I have tons of self-storage opportunities. But sometimes I do sometimes I don't and I know there are other people out there who are who are buying self-storage as well.   Michael: Okay, and what are some, like canary in the coal mine type of things to look out for or red flags to look out for when it comes to both the self-storage facility as an opportunity, as in addition to the operators themselves because like, I don't know anything about self-storage. So other than someone's track record, if they're showing me their offering memorandum? I'm like, I don't know that sounds good. What should we be looking out for?   Brian: That's a good question. That's like, how do you judge someone like myself, someone like some of the other syndicators out there who are doing it, I think you need to look at the track record, look at their communications with investors really dig into that what is their expertise in that area and that's why I partner with people who really know their space. I, I don't claim to be a self-storage expert, but I partner with people who are self-storage experts. As far as the facility, here are the metrics you want to look at. Because you're looking at the square footage. First of all, how much square footage is available. A lot of people asked me well, how many units do you have and like I have no idea how many units we have because they're you know, some are five by 510 by 30s 10 by 40s 10, by 10s.   You know, so they you can have any configuration of units, it's really the rentable square foot that you want to look at. So we always do a feasibility study because we want to look at how much square footage is in the facility that we might be buying or considering to develop and then what's our competition how much square footage is already available in that area and you want to look at kind of a one mile radius, a three mile radius and a five mile radius that's where most of your customers are going to come from and within that one, three and five mile radius, what's your competition look like? How much square footage is out there already? Then you look at how many people live in that area. What and then what is the square footage per person that's available in that area. So, these are kind of loose metrics not to be taken you know, as a hard and fast rule. But if you have, say, less than four square foot per person in those areas, then you're probably under supplied and you can compute on paper, how much more square footage can be absorbed in those areas. If you have over say, five, seven, you know, closer to 10 square foot per person, then you're probably over supplied, and the absorption rate is going to be a lot slower. The other thing you want to really pay attention to in the feasibility study is the income in the area, you know, you want to see incomes that are at least over 40,000 per year, on average, over 60,000 per year on average, then you're really in a good area to add more or to buy that buy that supply and then of course, you want to look at well, what might be coming online. So you want to check with the city and the municipal municipality to see what's been approved. That may not have been built yet, but it's out there waiting to be built and become a competitor to you.   Michael: Okay, I used to live down on the central coast of California and down there, there was like, tons and tons and tons of storage facilities. Is that bad business or is that common practice that were there's one, there's many…   Brian: You know, here's probably a huge density of population there. So there's definitely in some of the primary cities, you hear about oversupply, they're over building self-storage and hopefully, those are companies that are building the self-storage that have deep pockets, because eventually that space will lease up, and they'll meet their pro forma but it's going to take longer, because there is this oversupply. So that does it, it is justified, because you have more maybe you have more and more people moving to those areas, there's a lot of density. I prefer secondary and tertiary markets, where you don't have nearly as much competition. But you still be if you when you look at the demographics, and the absorption rate, and you know, the amount of square footage available. There's still a need. So we've recently bought some facilities and I have I have several Self Storage partners. I have another cell storage partner, his name is Charlie Gao and we bought a facility in northern Michigan, that was already 52,000 square foot, we immediately we purchased that, and then we bought 10 acres next to it and we immediately more than doubled the size of that facility and it just came on line two months ago, and it's leasing up three times faster than we anticipated and projected.   Michael: People got lots of stuff and they need somewhere to store it.   Brian: Yeah, they do. They say self-storage is good in all economies, when the economy is good people buy stuff and they need to store it. When the economy is bad people downsize and they need to store their stuff.   Michael: Yeah, I remember that.... My wife and I got a unit when we were traveling in our van because we had moved out of our primary home rented it out and then we were living in a van full time and we hadn't yet bought a new primary to move into so we got a storage unit and I walked into this facility and I'm like, these people are printing money and like I'm a tenant, I'm never gonna call landlord say my toilets broken or my lights broken or I have a clock. You know, like, so many of the problems that people run into or hear about traditional real estate. I don't think exist in self-storage. I'm sure it has its own sets of problems but like man to not have to deal with tenants in the middle of the night. Sounds awesome.   Brian: Yeah. Yeah, the calls we might get are the gate is stuck and I can't get out but no one's gonna say the toilets busted. We don't we there's no gas. There's no water and sewer, there's electricity and then there's security cameras and a gate and you know, it's so simple and done, right…. Self-Storage, I think is like an ATM machine. It just, you're right it just you print money with it, if you do it right…   Michael: Oh my god. I love it, I love it, Brian. We didn't have a chance to get to short term rentals love to have you back to chat more about that. But for those interested in your podcast in investing with you in reaching out learning more about you and your company, where's the best place for them to do that and what are the names of some of those things we just mentioned?   Brian: Yeah, thanks, Michael.

    4 cosas que debes saber sobre consumidores de cannabis preocupados por el wellness. Epi 123

    El consumo de cannabis y el sentirse bien han ido de la mano durante siglos. Por esta razón, cuando la pandemia global ayudó a que los productos de wellness se convirtieran en algunos de los bienes de consumo de más rápido crecimiento a escala mundial, los operadores de cannabis vieron una oportunidad comercial de oro.Pero comercializar productos de cannabis para consumidores wellness no es tan simple como envolver los mismos productos en colores pastel.Y los comercializadores de cannabis que buscan nuevos consumidores deben tener cuidado de no alienar a los usuarios de marihuana tradicionales que podrían encontrar desagradable cuando sus marcas favoritas parecen maquillar su imagen convencional para perseguir ventas en el wellnessEs un equilibrio complicado, pero que puede pagar grandes dividendos.Se estimó que el sector de la salud y el bienestar tuvo un valor aproximado de 1,5 billones de dólares el año pasado y se prevé que crezca entre un 5% y un 10% anual, según la consultora de gestión global McKinsey & Co. La empresa descubrió que los compradores preocupados por el bienestar están buscando productos que son:NaturalesLimpiosDiseñado para mejorar su salud y bienestar mentalProbado y aprobado por personas influyentes en las redes socialesEl gran tamaño del mercado wellness muestra por qué tantas marcas de cannabis están lanzando productos que evocan spas más que conciertos de rock.Para descubrir las mejores estrategias de marketing para compradores de cannabis interesados ​​en el wellness, el medio M J BizDaily reunió información de expertos en una reciente conferencia de la Cannabis Marketing Association en Denver.Hay cuatro conclusiones que los especialistas en marketing sugieren al crear campañas de marca para compradores de cannabis preocupados por el wellness:Comience con CBD y comience en las redes socialesLos cannabinoides que no intoxican son los mejores productos para atraer a los compradores de cannabis preocupados por el bienestar, que suelen ser consumidores mayores y mujeres, dijo Antonio Gándara-Martínez, presidente y director de marketing de Budboard, una empresa de tecnología de cannabis en Albuquerque, Nuevo México.“El mercado de CBD es mayoritariamente femenino”, dijo. "Para el THC, ya sea médico o recreativo, es el grupo de hombres de 18 a 29 años el sector a atacar".El grupo demográfico generalmente aprende sobre productos de cannabis no intoxicantes en los canales de las redes sociales, dijo Anna Schwabe, directora de investigación y desarrollo de 420 Organics en Nueva Jersey.“Muchas mujeres y muchas personas mayores están investigando el CBD y principalmente lo leen en las redes sociales”, dijo.No descarte el THCEl CBD podría ser el producto de entrada para los consumidores de cannabis preocupados por el bienestar.Pero las compañías de cannabis deberían considerar probar productos de THC, si están formulados pensando en los nuevos usuarios, dijo Gándara-Martínez.“El CBD es importante para desestigmatizar el cannabis”, dijo.“Hace unos años, vendías THC o CBD. A partir de este año, es una división 50-50, donde la gente quiere ambos y la gente no tiene miedo a comprar THC".Las palabras importanEl mensaje es tan importante como la formulación para los nuevos compradores de THC, porque es posible que no quieran pensar en sí mismos como consumidores de cannabis de forma recreativa, dijo Diane Downey, directora ejecutiva de Rebel Spirit Cannabis Co. en Eugene, Oregón.“Es muy importante que respetemos la forma en que las personas se identifican a sí mismas y también que sepamos que eso es dinámico y cambiante”, dijo.La demografía no lo es todoLos especialistas en marketing de cannabis no tienen escasez de herramientas para identificar a los consumidores y orientar los esfuerzos de marketing en función de las edades y donde viven.Pero harían mejor en centrarse en los productos que resuenan con los compradores de cannabis preocupados por el wellness, como por ejemplo los productos con pocos ingredientes, dijo Raina Jackson, fundadora y directora ejecutiva de Purple Raina Self Care, una compañía de San Francisco que fabrica tópicos con infusión de cannabinoides y productos de belleza.“A la gente le gustan los productos que hacen muchas cosas diferentes con menos”, dijo Jackson.“Puedes mirar todos los números de edad y sexo y cosas así, pero mucho de eso es psicográfico (rasgos de personalidad) más que demográfico, agregó.“¿Qué está buscando la gente y cómo puedo ofrecérselo?”, esa es una de las claves por ahora, coincidieron los expertos.//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Pacientes de cannabis medicinal de EE. UU. se cuadruplicaron en 4 añosEl número de pacientes de cannabis medicinal registrados en los EE. UU. se ha cuadriplicado de 2016 a 2020 y el total actual es de poco más de 2,97 millones de pacientes, según un estudio de inicios de 2022 publicó el sitio ganja preneur. Los investigadores encontraron que el 61% de los inscritos están calificados para programas para el dolor crónico, mientras que el 11% están inscritos para el trastorno de estrés postraumático.Los investigadores notaron que alrededor de un tercio de los pacientes calificados usan cannabis medicinal "para afecciones o síntomas sin una base de evidencia sustancial", dice el informe.Según la Conferencia Nacional de Legislaturas Estatales, 37 estados, Washington, D.C. y cuatro territorios de EE. UU. habían legalizado el cannabis medicinal a partir de febrero.Una encuesta de Harris Poll realizada en nombre de Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. publicada a principios de 2022 encontró que el 91% de los adultos mayores de 21 años que alguna vez han consumido cannabis lo han hecho con fines de salud y bienestar, independientemente de si están inscritos en un programa estatal. La encuesta encontró que el 75% de los encuestados prefería soluciones de salud holísticas sobre productos farmacéuticos y el 62% dijo que preferiría usar cannabis en lugar de medicamentos farmacéuticos para un problema médico.Más de la mitad (52 %) de los encuestados dijeron que preferían consumir cannabis para relajarse, el 49 % para ayudarlos a dormir, el 44 % para reducir el estrés y el 41 % para reducir la ansiedad.//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Las empresas de marihuana luchan por mantenerse a flote en medio de la sobreproducción y caída los preciosA medida que las empresas principales se enfrentan a la creciente inflación y la amenaza de una recesión, muchas empresas de marihuana para adultos (cultivadores, minoristas y empresas auxiliares por igual) luchan con su propia serie de problemas.La caída de los precios y un exceso de productos en los mercados estatales de marihuana más establecidos están obligando a las empresas a cerrar, provocando despidos y desencadenando una lucha en toda la industria para mantenerse a flote.La caída de los precios ha aumentado la presión sobre los cultivadores y minoristas de cannabis.Para agravar los problemas de las empresas de cannabis: los productos de marihuana a menudo se gravan a una tasa mucho más alta que los productos convencionales como el maíz, la leche y los automóviles.En el estado de Washington, por ejemplo, los impuestos pueden representar casi el 50% del precio de los productos de marihuana.En respuesta, los minoristas están utilizando una variedad de tácticas para mantenerse a flote, que incluyen:Ofrecer a los consumidores grandes descuentos.Salir del negocio minorista por completo para centrarse en el cultivo.Abrir negocios completamente nuevos, como un salón de cerveza con temática de marihuana, para atraer el tráfico de regreso a sus tiendas.“Casi a nadie le va bien”, dijo Matt Walstatter, quien vendió su tienda de Oregón, Pure Green, en 2019 para enfocarse en el cultivo.////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Disclaimer Cannabis Hispano no promueve ni participa en actividades ilegales relacionadas con el uso o la venta de marihuana o sus derivados.

    Often we tend to think of "patients" and "providers." While sometime we may accuse medical teams of forgetting that their patients are whole human beings and not just a wrist band and chart in a hospital bed, it works the other way, too. We sometimes forget that our doctors are more than white coats adjusting out medications and asking who the president is -- again. But doctors are, in fact, human. And they can create art. And they can have strokes. Dr. Bevan Choate, MD, was a surgeon and urologist just enter the heart (or kidney) of his career. One morning, everything changed. He shares his story of the past 18 month in this episode. (If you don't see the audio player below, visit http://Strokecast.com/Bevan to listen.)   Click here for a machine-generated transcript Who is Dr. Bevan Choate, MD? Bevan was bornin 1985 in San Angelo, TX.  What do you do when you are born in San Angelo, TX? You grow up on a horse. As Bevan says: "I grew up in a cattle ranching family.  Cowboying since I could ride a horse but perhaps due to the Waylon and Willie song, they didn't want me to grow up to be a cowboy. So, I was given all the odd and less glamorous jobs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RePtDvh4Yq4&ab_channel=kdn3249 I realized about midway through undergrad that I wanted to be a doctor.  I was always a science geek at heart, and figured medicine to be a pure and noble application of science. I excelled in medical school and completed my five-year Urology residency in Albuquerque at the University of New Mexico Hospital.  It was the roughest five years of my entire life.  Being a sleepless subordinate for almost two thousand days is a tough pill to swallow.  Nonetheless, I persevered and began practicing Urology in Albuquerque.  It was my calling.  I love it.  I love my patients and some of them even love me.  I did quite a bit of oncologic surgery and got good at robotic surgery using the Da Vinci robot. " Things changed for Bevan on December 3, 2020. That's when a left vertebral artery dissection threw a clot that lodged in the left part of his cerebellar and proceeded to kill millions of valuable brain cells. The dissection has no "attributable etiology." That's how doctors write a shoulder shrug emoji. No one knows why it happened. Bevan just got lucky. The surgeons who were not Bevan got to work. His procedures included a ventricular shunt, a craniectomy, and a left cerebellar strokectomy (surgical excision of infarcted brain tissue post-stroke with preservation of skull integrity, distinguishing it from decompressive hemicraniectomy). As Bevan says, "Yep, I have about 80-85% of a brain.  Not playing with a full deck" Following this adventure, Bevan contended with: Acute Deficits Double vision Visual impairment Vertigo Left-sided ataxia Loss of left fine motor function Inability to walk or balance Chronic Deficits Loss of left fine motor function Balance issues Right sided stroke neuropathy Left-sided ataxia Since then, he's accomplished some impressive things, not the least of which are living and walking. He's also become a published author and a professional artist. He's also still practicing medicine and seeing patients. The laser may need to wait a little while though. It's been quite the year and a half. Typing around a Stroke People approach their stroke recovery in different ways. Bevan and Michael Schutt both launched their writing projects to learn to type with their affected side again. My approach to typing was the opposite. Instead of forcing my left hand to the keyboard, I wanted to get faster more quickly. I taught myself to type more quickly with one hand. I'm currently at about 34 wpm (average for two-handed typists is about 44 wpm). Has that slowed my recovery? Maybe. Recovery is a delicate balance of accepting a disability and fighting that disability. Too far in one direction is not great for living the best life possible for many folks. Of course, every stroke is different. I can admire the approach others took without feeling mine was wrong. Especially since my fingers are still (slowly) coming back. And if they don't, that's fine, too. Why write? Bevan started writing his book to collect anecdotes. It's so easy to forget the details of an event with time, especially if we don't realize at the moment how important they might be. The very acting of writing or typing them out gives them a stronger hold in our memory. Every time we read them again, we can reinforce that hold they have. We can extract more incite from them. You don't have to write a book, though. When I was in the hospital, I tried to post at least one anecdote from the day every day to Facebook. Part of that was to keep people informed of my status. Part was my compulsion to entertain folks and make sure they got value from check in on me (that's something I should probably unpack at some point). Part of it was to chronicle what I was going through for future reference. In Bevan's case, doing that led to "The Stroke Artist."* It's his memoir of his stroke experience as a doctor who returns to the art he enjoyed, then made it a second profession. The varied paths stroke take us on never cease to amaze. You can find Bevan's book on Amazon here. * So write down your stories. Maybe it's just a collection of random anecdotes and paragraphs without a plan. Maybe it's all jumbled in time. If you can physically write, record video or audio. Or take pictures. Or tell your stories to someone else. The stories we tell connect us with the world across the ages, going both backwards and forwards in time. As the 11th Doctor said, "We're all stories in the end." Bevan's Art Bevan started creating art just to create art. That's probably the best reason to do it. When I started blogging in 2006, it was because I realized I hadn't written anything that wasn't an email or a PowerPoint slide in years and I needed to write for the sake of writing. Of course, that set me on the path to where I am today, but that's not really the point I'm trying to make here. Bevan returned to art after stroke and before long, he was selling art online. You can browse his work and even make a purchase at his website. You can find that here. https://artrepreneur.com/showroom/q3GhqiFsYA2jL75iy The relationship between stroke and art is fascinating. It gets into the physical changes in the brain brought on by stroke, the lifestyle changes we are forced to make, and the shift in our own priorities and world view after stroke. Bevan and I talked about some of that in our conversation. If you found that discussion interesting, I'd also encourage you to listen to my conversation with Seattle artist and survivor Seth Ian Scheer from 2019. Stroke Strides Support Group The Stroke Strides support group is a virtual group, based at Multicare Good Samaritan Hospital in Western Washington. They are looking for survivors who would like to speak to their group individually or as part of a panel. If you are looking for channels to share your story, this is a nice one. The last time I did it the group was fairly small, which means it's great if you want to get started speaking to other groups. They are starting up their next series of talks in July 2022, and I'll be part of that. If you'd like to join as well, reach out to Kristin Olson (ktolson@multicare.org) for more details. Hack of the Week Big goals can be inspiring, but they can also be hard to achieve. To really kick start your recovery, set small, simple goals. Work towards small improvements. Those small goals and habits over time add up to big things. That's how you ultimately achieve success. Bevan's hack align nicely with my regular mantra: Don't get best…get better.

    The world around us is a four-dimensional world; there are three spatial dimensions, and one temporal dimension. Many of these objects emit an almost unfathomable number of photons. As we developed as creatures on this planet, we gathered the ability to sense the world around us; and given the amount of information represented as photons, it is no surprise that we developed an organ for sensing photons. But because of the amount of photons that are involved, and our relatively limited computational resources, it is necessary to develop shortcuts if we want to simulate an environment in silico. So what is raytracing? How is that different from what happens in games? And what does Ptolemy have to do with 3D graphics?

    Could we actually replicate the biomes of Earth on other planets? In September 1991, eight intrepid explorers entered Biosphere 2 in the Arizona desert to spend two years seeing if humans could sustain life in the same way biosphere 1, the Earth, does. And it wasn't so great, unless you're heavily into mites, cockroaches, Steve Bannon and pot-bellied pigs.
