“Guess who's back…back again”! Can you name that song? LOL Baby number two is here and we are back in the swing of things! When we found out that we were pregnant with baby Ollie, we knew we wanted to be intentional about taking time off to have a proper maternity/paternity leave. When we had our first son Kaizen, we didn't do a good job in this area so we knew it would take some planning to make it happen. We are so thankful we did and we were able to block off two months and focus on family, fun, and making memories as a family. If you have heard some of our previous episodes, you know that it was a crazy pregnancy. So, by the time baby Ollie was here we needed a little time off. Quickly things changed when we found ourselves back in the hospital with a health scare with Oliver. (Check out episode 60 for that story.) After that, we took some time to be intentional about resting, healing, and doing things that bring us to life. We could spend hours talking about all the lessons and things we learned during this time but we decided for this episode just to pass on some of the biggest “golden chicky nuggets” that could help you in your entrepreneurial journey. If you have ever taken time off for longer than a few weeks, it starts to feel like every day is Saturday. At first, it's amazing, but after a few weeks, it can start to get depressing because there is no routine and you stop doing the things that bring you joy. Hear how we brought joy back in our days and how we learned to identify what brings us to life. During the conversation, you'll also learn how to create your “dream week”! This simple strategy can help set every week up for success and transform your week by helping you get the most out of work, home, and mom life.

BoF's Tamison O'Connor explains how the fashion industry is betting on resortwear as consumers return to their pre-pandemic lifestyles and travel rebounds. Background: Every spring, top fashion clients, influencers and insiders are whisked away to lush destinations like Monte Carlo and Capri to indulge in fabulous dinners and cocktail parties — and sneak a peek at brands' resort collections. Resortwear, which began as a way for luxury houses to cater to wealthy, travelling clients halfway through the main season, now represents so much more as a meaningful driver of sales for retailers. “It's really attractive for the true luxury customer who sees these items as a fun way to accessorise a holiday, but it's also an entry point for more aspirational and younger consumers,” said luxury correspondent Tamison O'Connor. Key Insights: As consumers start travelling and treating themselves again, luxury is betting big on vacation dressing. Resortwear stands apart with more casual designs, lighter fabrics and lower prices. Brands aren't just using these collections to attract travellers and true luxury consumers, but also to snag wealthy domestic clients and appeal to aspirational buyers. Retailers are picking up on opportunities to engage wealthy consumers by building buzz with events and activations surrounding resortwear online and in stores. Big brands are opening more stores and pop-up markets in vacation towns. Luxury doesn't expect growth in the segment to slow, even amid global economic turbulence, travel restrictions in China and skyrocketing inflation.

Composer and musician Neil Brand brings a live show to the Electric Cinema as part of Flatpack Festival - Neil Brand Presents Laurel and Hardy is touring around the country, giving audiences a taste of Stan and Ollie's work before they were paired together, and showing us what their double act was like before the development of sound cinema. The show culminates in screenings of two of their silent shorts, Big Business and Liberty, accompanied on the piano, of course, by Neil. It's a great introduction to both Laurel and Hardy and silent comedy in general, which thrives when accompanied live. Neil's own passion for the duo, whose films he grew up with, is evident, describing their appeal to him and showing a clip of Stan, a drama he wrote about Stan visiting Ollie on his deathbed. He introduces us to the term "reciprocal destruction", a term that brilliantly distills something you immediately realise you associate with both Laurel and Hardy and the cartoons their comedy inspired: when someone attacks an opponent, the assailant must then wait for the victim to attack them in return, only then returning fire, each volley increasing in aggression and destructive power, until chaos reigns. And although we take issue with one of the chosen clips, of an early Stan Laurel film that includes a gay stereotype that is used uncritically here to earn laughs, it's a blip in an accomplished, well-constructed and entertaining show that we recommend you see. Recorded on 21st May 2022.
The Party of Big Business Is Getting More Anti-Conservative by the Day With Stephanie Slade Senior Editor of Reason Magazine and Host Richard Levick of LEVICK: For decades, it was taken as a given that the GOP was the party of business. Entire elections at the highest level, including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, among others, instantly come to mind as candidates who artfully articulated and ran on this platform. Today, that position has been turned on its head at every level, with just the latest example being Disney in Florida, AT&T in Texas and others, where Republican governors are increasingly retaliating against companies for the positions they take. Stephanie Slade, senior editor at Reason, the magazine of "free minds and free markets," speaks with host Richard Levick of LEVICK about a recent opinion piece she published in the New York Times, The Party of Big Business Is Getting More Anti-Conservative by the Day. How do companies, individuals, historical Republicans and others react to this tectonic shift?
Tackling the Health Literacy and Equity Conundrum: Ep. 25 of Red Sky Fuel for Thought PodcastWhat You'll Learn in This Episode:· The relationship (and discrepancies) between health equity and health equality· Health equity as a reputational management issue· The importance of cultural context in communications· The power of partnership in achieving health equity· Turning increased recognition of health equity issues into resultsWhen it comes to health care access in the United States, not everyone is equal. This reality has only been reinforced as we've all dealt with COVID-19. Major deficiencies in health care literacy have also become far more prominent over the past two years — in many cases exacerbating an already troubling situation. In this month's roundtable discussion featuring our Global CEO James Wright, we take a deep dive into the current state of health equity and literacy and the role that brands can play to increase health care knowledge, continuing a recent conversation hosted by Red Havas at the 2022 PR Week U.S. Healthcare + Pharma Awards & Summit.So, what is health equity? It's about ensuring equal access to quality health care for everybody by ending institutional and discriminatory barriers, whether it be systemic racism, sexism, poverty, or unequal distribution of resources. Healthy equality, on the other hand, means giving everyone equal opportunity and distribution of the care and services available. While achieving health equality can resolve some disparities, not enough progress can be made without also addressing health equity and the many social factors which influence people's health and wellness. Health inequity has never been more high profile than it than it is today for our clients across the health and pharma industries," says James. "These underlying problems go back hundreds of years but have clearly surfaced during the pandemic. This is a complex issue that requires businesses, health care systems and governments to work together to address. It's driving greater diversity in the product and service portfolios of our clients, and it's increasingly becoming a subject in marketing as organizations seek to learn more about these groups to better reach and service them."While health equity is a moral issue, it's also emerged from the pandemic as a reputational management issue. Organizations now must clearly define what their role is, whether it's raising awareness and education on health inequity, helping clients better interact and learn from different population groups, building messaging and proof points, or promoting the products and services that are being provided and launched to diverse groups. Any brand that engages with the public must think about healthcare and how they are addressing access, equity, and inclusion.PR experts must also look through a health equity lens to determine the preferred terms, language, and distribution channels of various diverse groups. Beyond that, we must also consider things from a cultural context — to learn how different demographics view health care providers. For example, research has shown that people from under-served populations or under-resourced populations feel more comfortable working with a provider who comes from their community or background and can instinctively understand some of their challenges, thought processes, and cultural norms."There's an increased recognition from the media, governments and big pharma that we need to focus on addressing health inequity," says James. "Now, that recognition needs to turn into results. We need to focus on the success of programs that have been launched and learn from areas that haven't succeeded to continue to build momentum and effect change."The episode wraps with Red Havas VP of Content Ellen Mallernee Barnes and our Red Questionnaire guest Claire Davies, strategy director at Red Havas U.K., for a conversation spanning various topics including Claire's outlook on time management, her favorite podcast (“The Secret History of Hollywood") and how she'd describe her job to a child."It's like working in shop, but instead of selling items, we sell ideas," says Claire on the latter. "I like the mental image of a shop with rows of jars with different sparks and ideas in them, waiting to be plucked and formed."Give “Red Sky Fuel for Thought” a listen, and subscribe to the show on iTunes, Spotify or your favorite podcasting app. Don't forget to rate and review to help more people find us!Also mentioned on this episode:· 2022 PR Week U.S. Healthcare + Pharma Awards & Summit· PR Week: Healthcare is Big Business for PR Firms· 4,000 Weeks by Oliver Burkeman· "The Secret History of Hollywood” podcastFollow Red Havas for a daily dose of comms news: · Twitter· Facebook· Instagram· LinkedInSubscribe: Don't forget to subscribe to the show using your favorite podcasting app. · iTunes· SpotifyWhat did you love?

Today, Jean-Michel Basquiat is unquestionably one of the most recognizable and beloved artists on the planet. A native New Yorker of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent, Basquiat first attracted attention as a teenage graffiti writer in the late 1970s, before rapidly transitioning into the role of international sensation in the newly glamorous, increasingly global gallery world of the 1980s. Although the main draw was his inimitable artistic practice, which merged cryptic poetry and symbology with antic, Expressionistic figures, Basquiat quickly became a downtown celebrity of the first order, walking the runway, collaborating with musicians, and famously dating Madonna. Tragically, Basquiat died from an overdose at the age of 27. His short artistic career makes it all the more remarkable that his work and his visage seem to be everywhere in the 21st century. Of course, I'm not just talking about his actual paintings, which reliably sell for tens of millions of dollars at auction. Licensed reproductions of Basquiat's work now fuel a wide range of products and branding opportunities, from affordable t-shirts and keychains, to an unprecedented collaboration with the NBA's Brooklyn Nets resulting in a Basquiat-inspired home court design and team uniform. But as licensing has become a lucrative revenue stream for contemporary artists and estates, it has also intensified age-old criticisms about the corrosive powers of commercialization on creative integrity. The Basquiat estate's approach has made Jean-Michel's work one of the focal points of this tension, especially after the opening of “King Pleasure,” a major exhibition about the artist's life and work now on view in Manhattan. To sort through this tangled web, Artnet News art business editor Tim Schneider spoke to market guru Katya Kazakina about her look into Basquiat and the increasingly big business of artwork licensing.

Jay Bilas, college basketball analyst from ESPN, joined Baskin and Phelps to chat about what the landscape of college sports currently looks like and what it might look like in 20 years.

They also talk about the NCAA, if the NCAA will survive and if the NCAA will take a role similar to the current AAU and what that path would like for the NCAA if that were to happen.

Welcome to Business Insight. Today we are celebrating National Tourism Week, May 1-7. Did you know that tourism in Henry County is big business? Of course, Henry County is home to Atlanta Motor Speedway but we have many great restaurants, attractions and hotels that contribute to the size industry. In 2020, during the height of the pandemic, visitors to Henry County spent $311 million dollars here. That's a lot mullah – which helps offset some of the taxes our citizens pay. But because of the pandemic, those number were down some compared to 2019. We have with us today, the Director of Tourism here in Henry County, GA, Laura Luker, to talk about the economics of the tourism industry here in Henry County and what we can expect in 2022. She's also going to reveal how our tourism team has put Henry County on the map in a very positive way.
In this episode I share with you a little concept i've coined "BBE", a.k.a BIG Business Energy!

Check it out below: Neil Bertrand 00:00 We want to bring in like-minded people, a very select group, and just kind of put them through a six-month program, where they're analyzing deals and we're explaining to them why things work, why things don't work, you know, in terms of time, if something was worth it, you make the time, right. And that's what we want from the people that we will bring in as these codes GP, I hate to use the word trainee because it just doesn't sound right. You know, come stand shoulder to shoulder with us and learn how to do things that I hate. I'm going to use this phrase and I don't care who gets offended, learn how to do things the correct way. Intro 00:35 Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson 00:47 Neil Bertrand is a 25-year multifamily veteran with experience across all asset classes and types. Neil, welcome to the show. Neil Bertrand 00:55 Hey, thanks for having me. Sam Wilson 00:57 Pleasure is mine. Same question I asked every guest who comes on the show, in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there? Neil Bertrand 00:55 I started in the mid 90s. My wife got me in the business. And I had... I gravitated toward the financial side, started with the property management side, was naturally numbers-oriented. And it served me well. Sam Wilson 01:17 And where are you now? Neil Bertrand 01:19 So I'm with RGX invest, Executive Vice President and Partner in our assets. Ravi Katta is our CEO. We're an Austin-based institutional-style, vertically integrated investment firm. Sam Wilson 01:30 And then how did you get there? Neil Bertrand 01:32 Ravi and I actually met two and a half years ago, and we were both asked to participate in something called the Texas Multifamily Executive Forum. I joke that it's a group of owners, investors, C-suite guys, you know, a couple of private equity guys, and we meet every other Friday by Zoom. Half of the call is us griping about how everything is overpriced, and we can't find good deals. And the other half of the call is, you know, where do we go to find good deals. So during the course of those calls about the first year or so of it, Ravi and I realized that we had a lot of the same ideology, same mentality, both long term, very ambitious guys with kind of desire to help other people, learn what we do, impact their lives and grow. February of last year, we made it official, teamed up. And within 45 days, we had $1.4 billion of new development under contract. Man, you know, the rest, as they say, is history. Sam Wilson 02:27 That's, you know, nobody just wakes up one day, you know, says hey, we're gonna form a partnership and then a month and a half later, you know, inks a $1.4 billion new development deal north of Austin, Texas. There's a lot of things that have gone into that I'm sure that you're downplaying. But let's talk about that project. I guess out of the, you know, break down that project for us. Why do you guys see the opportunity to be developing now versus where you see we are in the market? I think we were talking about, you know, here before we kicked off the episode that you kind of see it as a party that you know, people think never gonna end. Neil Bertrand 03:06Right, right. The analogy I use was a bunch of 18-year-old rockstar wannabes playing the clubs every weekend, thinking that the party is never going to end, right. Sam Wilson 03:07Right, right. Neil Bertrand 03:08When you look at the cities we're developing in, Leander Cedar Park and Lago Vista. Lago Vista: 76% plus population growth since the year 2000. Median income for the entire cities pushes $90,000,. Cedar Park: 205% population growth since the year 2000. Again, six digit, you know, median incomes in the sub market. Leander Springs: fastest growing city in America, 761% population growth since the year 2000. City-wide median income is six digits. The opportunity was great, we were able to purchase the land for all these deals pretty much off market. The Leander Springs project was actually a development that was already in play and we purchased out the guys that had put it together. But you know when you look at what we can build these deals for in cities that have five and eight year projected growth, I mean, 2019-2020, 4% population growth alone for Leander, okay. And when you look at where a lot of the growth is situated in Texas, you know, Dallas and Austin are really getting, reaping the benefits of that, and Houston and San Antonio are doing very well. But to kind of answer your original question, why develop now instead of buy? We're developing for much, much less than I can purchase a 2015 asset for in this market. And I'm talking in comparable locations, right? Half million dollar homes, six figure incomes. It just makes more sense right now to build. By the time, you know, you're looking at a 2015 asset, relatively brand-new construction right. But guess what? Your appliances and are nearing the end of their life expectancy for an apartment community. Depending on where you've built, you're probably starting to see some of those nice foundation issues that certain areas of Texas are known for. Your deferred maintenance is starting to creep in, right.? Sam Wilson 05:10 Right. Neil Bertrand 05:11 Do I buy for, you know, 330 a door? 2015 asset? Or do I build for 225 to 30 a door? It's a no brainer. Sam Wilson 05:18 Sure. Yeah. I mean, just from a mathematical equation, it's a no brainer. What about time to bring product to market? I mean, a $1.4 billion project isn't a six month project. Neil Bertrand 05:29 No, no. So we, Leander Springs will be a six year project and kind of what this project is. It's 78 acres, it's going to consist of three apartment communities totaling 1600 units, over 1 million square foot of office and retail, a 250 room hotel with a 20,000 square foot conference center. And all of that will be centered by a four acre crystal lagoon. And this will be the only publicly accessible four acre crystal lagoon in Central Texas. So we're basically building the ultimate live-work-play environment, right. And that's going to be built in probably four phases. Phase one is going to be the lagoon, the first apartment community with the retail, get the utilities stretched out there, take about 18 to 24 months from the first shovel in the ground to full lease-up, right? With the way that the markets are growing, and the population growth, and the fact that we're building such a unique product, you know, we're anticipating a very easy lease-up. If you take a look at the national average right now, similar class lease-ups are hitting about 50 to 70 units a month in high demand areas. So I'm always cautiously optimistic. But on this one, I'm just optimistic. Sam Wilson 06:42 I like that. How are you guys funding this? I know you have a big background in the institutional space. So maybe this was just a hey, tee up the right partners, and then off you go. And we all get together and do it. But talk to us about that. Neil Bertrand 06:56 So a year ago, Ravi and I started a fund. And it was basically a friends and family fund, but only for accredited investors, $30 million fund. And we basically have used that money to purchase the land for these acquisitions. So we're stable there. And yes, as we build project by project, we are engaging private equity groups and family offices, you know, from around the country and a few international groups as well. Sam Wilson 07:23 Right. And so you've already kind of got this pipeline warmed up. This is the project, this is what we're doing. This is the expected capital. You know, it's not committed capital, hard capital yet, but it's people that have kind of given the preliminary nod that says, when it's time, yes, we want to participate. Neil Bertrand 07:37 Right. And I'll be honest with you, this is the only project and I became a VP of acquisitions summer, sometime around 2015-2016. This is the only project where I have the private equity groups contacting me or contacting Ravi, like, hey, you guys, you guys ready? You guys gotta pay the numbers? Because, you know, the city of Leander is offering us a, you know, incredible tax incentive. Obviously, they see the benefit to this type of project. You've got tech companies moving in, hey, you have your office, you're living, you're shopping everything right here. You know, what else do you need? Sam Wilson 08:10 Right. Yeah, absolutely. When you have investors calling you saying, hey, you ready? You ready for my capital? Yet? That's a great place to be. Let's talk about the market for a second, if there's a shift in the market, or if there's a shift in as you said, you know, when the 18-year-old rock band grew, you know, when the music stops, is there any fear that not committed capital won't be there when it's time? Neil Bertrand 08:33 No, because the new development space right now is probably one of the safer areas to invest in because the returns are simply better, right? You're not going to get 20-25% IRR on an 80s value-add deal, right? You may get 18 at best, you're certainly not going to get it on anything built between 2015-2020, right? Again, you'll probably get 18 at best, unless you can come across a unicorn where the developer didn't care about the expenses. He just wanted to build the thing and sell it as soon as it was stabilized, and you can trim a lot of fat. So it's still going to be the safest bet. For a lot of that capital. Sam Wilson 09:12 Yeah, no, I think that's really smart. And especially, you know, everybody always says that real estate is local, right? There's no such thing as the national real estate market. And we saw that even in 2008, that while, yes, maybe there was a lot of pain across the country. There were still markets that did really well. Some of those, I think, were actually in Texas. So you know, like you mentioned before, just following the population growth, I mean, that's astounding population growth. So not seeing that kind of wane as well, I think is really intriguing, and also not "motivating," what's the word I'm looking for here, but further reason to keep doing what you're doing. Tell me about the buildout side of things. I mean, that's a lot of projects and a lot of moving parts and people to manage. How have you guys built a team around you? I know it was just the two of you, I guess, not too terribly long ago. You need a lot of support staff to make this thing go round. Neil Bertrand 10:00Right. So if you're familiar with The Domain project in Austin, once again, very large, nationally-recognized live-work-play development, we've engaged the big players who are involved in that project: architects, project managers, developers, engineers, I mean, literally the same, just probably about 80-70, 80% of that Domain team, we've engaged for this project, because when you're doing something like this, you want the best of the best, you don't want the guys who started an engineering firm last year, right? Or who read an engineering book and think they can do it, you know. We want the big names, the big guns. Sam Wilson 10:35Yeah, that makes a lot of sense, you know, to go out and find talent that's already done it. What are some risks that you feel like in this development project or in development as a whole, that you guys kind of see, you say, hey, these are some risks that either we can or cannot compensate for? Neil Bertrand 10:51 I think right now, it's going to be supply chain, and pricing, right? Obviously, we're keeping an eye on that, lumber kind of fluctuating up and down, up and down, labor shortages. Those are the type of things that can impact our numbers. But again, when you're working with these large groups that have a huge network and can command great pricing, you have a buffer, right? You don't have 100% guarantee, but you have a very good buffer. Sam Wilson 11:18Yeah, I would imagine that's absolutely true. One of things we talked about was that one of the things you'd love to do is to inspire others to grow and lead an impactful life. What does that mean? Neil Bertrand 11:31So there are a lot of people who, Ravi, of course, being Indian, I think, you know, the Indian community, lots of tech entrepreneurs, medical community, and then just even outside of the Indian community, a lot of people, great entrepreneurs, I mean, I was talking to a guy who was the VP of cybersecurity, all in, you know, pulling down 600,000 a year, but this much time to learn about real estate, right? The same thing with tech entrepreneurs, IT guys, doctors, no time to really, really learn. And when you take a look at what is out there, and I'm not disparaging any of the groups, but let's just be perfectly honest. The business of a mentor group is attracting and retaining students. That's first and foremost. Okay. Second is teaching you about real estate. So that's their primary concern. How do I attract and retain students? We're not gurus, we're not mentors, we don't want to be. You know, I make the comment, if I'm the smartest guy in the room that I need to find a new room. And even after 25 years, I still think that. I don't want to be the smartest guy in the room. So we want to help people to come alongside us, give them an opportunity, you know, they're aspiring GPs give them an opportunity to invest with us. You don't pay us, you invest with us. And you work side by side. You shadow us, you learn everything, you learn how to underwrite on a model that has been sent to Blackstone, and AllianceBernstein, and Prudential, and Northwestern Mutual Life, okay? It's not on a four tab underwriting model that is going to spit out the most erroneous returns you can imagine. And if I say that with a bit of sarcasm and loathing, it's there, because that hurts people. Right? What you don't know will hurt you. Sam Wilson 13:14That is awesome. I love that. What does that mean practically? I mean, because there's only so many hours in your day. And there has to be some sort of return on investment for you guys, when you bring on these, I'm gonna call it mentees, even though it's not right... You don't do a mentor program. Neil Bertrand 13:31Yeah. So for us, one is being very selective, right? You're not paying us to be coaches. So we're not doing this for everybody. We want people who, you know, first we want to understand your why and your why needs to be two things. My why is simple, I have to be somewhere after this call. If I don't make it there, my family is taken care of, okay? The second thing is, what do you want to do outside of yourself? Okay, it's great to have, you know, 10-15, $20 million net worth and pull down big money, but what are you doing to help other people, right? And so we want to bring in like-minded people, a very select group, and just kind of put them through a six month program, where they're analyzing deals, and we're explaining to them why things work, why things don't work, you know. In terms of time, if something was worth that you make the time, right, and that's what we want from the people that we will bring in as these Co-GP. I hate to use the word trainee, because it just doesn't sound right. You know, come stand shoulder to shoulder with us, I learn how to do things, and I hate... I'm going to use this phrase and I don't care who gets offended, learn how to do things the correct way. Sam Wilson 14:37I love it. And that's so absolutely necessary. And I think that's very valuable what you are doing because, and I say this in the show all the time, unapologetically, that if you are going to hire a mentor, then... And I know you're not a mentor in the traditional sense, but if you are gonna go that route, you've got to find somebody that is active in the space, that is buying and is doing it. Run from the guru, what I call the "guru but no do" person. It's like the real estate industry is fraught with that, it is I'm with you. It just kind of soured my stomach like, oh my god. Neil Bertrand 15:10I make sure I say this on every interview or podcast, you know. I say this, before you give your money to somebody, I want you to think about something. Before you give your money to a guru, or a syndicator, or a deal sponsor, heck, before you give your money to an institutional investor, in the state of Texas, there was more education, licensing and recertification required to cut hair than there is to raise money for $20 million asset. Sam Wilson 15:36I know it. Neil Bertrand 15:36And that is a sad, sad fact, right? You know, the best thing about real estate, anybody can do it. The worst thing about real estate is, anybody can do it. And you know, when you have enough people stomping around and puffing their chest like they're experts, and they have great marketing prowess, people buy, you know, they drink the Kool Aid. Sam Wilson 15:55Yeah. And people get hurt as well. I mean, that's in the end, there's a lot of activity and very little forward momentum. And I think that's one of the things maybe you're trying to solve there, is actually putting people in a position to make meaningful progress. Neil Bertrand 16:08Yeah. Sam Wilson 16:08I think that's absolutely cool. And I love the idea there of growing and leading an impactful life. So thanks for taking the time to break that down. Neil, appreciate having you come on the show. This has been great. I love the projects you guys are taking down. That's, what do they call that, massive action in a very short period of time? So I look forward to seeing this project. What's the name of the project you guys are developing there again? Neil Bertrand 16:29The large project is Leander Springs. Sam Wilson 16:31Leander Springs, okay, I have to keep my eye on that as it progresses over the next few years. But absolutely love how quickly and how precisely you guys are going after stuff like that. So yeah, look forward to following that. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you what is the best way to do that? Neil Bertrand 16:48Sure. You can send me an email neil, N-E-I-L, @ reitgroupx.com. R-E-I-T groupx.com. Sam Wilson 16:55Neil, thanks for your time. Appreciate it. Neil Bertrand 16:57Thank you.
