After dialing, running the in-home presentation is the most profitable activity in your business. So it's important that you get it right. There are many different presentations out there you can use. Bill Martin, Eric Valdez, Rob Jones- all of our top leaders have their own style. But they follow the same set of key principles to ensure success when in the home. This podcast isn't designed to teach you exactly what questions to ask and what exactly to say (although there's some of that in here). It's designed to teach you the principles. Because once you understand and learn the skeleton, you'll find it much easier and more natural to add the meat in your own style and personality, resulting in a much more natural meeting. I hope you get some nuggets you can take away to increase your success when in the home with a prospect. To protect your mind, keep listening. To protect your family, contact us.

Bill Martin, is the proud owner of a small boulder of an island off the coast of Florida called "Morgan's Island." It is a deserted useless rock to Bill, but by pure chance he stumbles across a treasure map pointing to his island. The map is presented to him by a peg-legged old sailor, Tobias Clump, after Bill and his friend "Stuff" Oliver saves the man from drowning. Clump was pushed into the water by a "phantom," who got away with part of the treasure map. Clump tells them that the map shows the way to infamous buccaneer Sir Henry Morgan's twenty million dollar treasure. Soon after this, Bill's cousin George offers to buy the whole island for the amount of $20,000, but Bill isn't willing to sell. Instead he brings the map to a reputed cartographer named Jasper who claims that the map is fake—it's a very well-made forgery. Letting go of the thought of the legendary treasure, Bill instead thinks of making some money by starting a "treasure hunt" cruise to his island, for fifty dollars apiece. He involves Stuff in the plans and together they start out for the island to plant a fake treasure for the tourists to find. On their way they are involved in a traffic accident, and by "accident" meet the posh Wendy Creighton and her boy toy, Thurman Coldwater. Since Bill is a little short of money he persuades Wendy to take his treasure cruise.The phantom that stole part of the treasure map from Clump reappears and warns Wendy and tells her that she will die if she stays on. She doesn't take this seriously, but the phantom appears once more, this time in her bedroom at night, and warns her again. Everyone believes that someone is pretending to be the ghost in an effort to scare them all off. A man in a cape kills Rod in front of Arleen, but when she gets back to the rest of the group the private investigator McGoon suspects her of being the killer. Bill suspects Tobias, who is still missing, and a "footprint" from a peg-leg is found near Rod's body. It turns out there is big reward set for the dead gangster, "dead or alive". Tobias reunites with the group and tells of a key he has found. It is supposed to unlock a torture chamber in the castle, where Sir Henry Morgan's treasure is hidden. The group enters the chamber but finds only a single gold coin. As they return to the castle's main hall there is a note on the table saying "nine left". The cross-bow fires again, but misses Clump by an inch, killing the phantom instead. It turns out the phantom was no other than an old shipmate of Clump's. On the phantom's body they find the rest of the treasure map.Bill, Stuff and Clump go to find the treasure, leaving George and Wendy to themselves in the castle. They find a new note saying "eight left" and when George tries to find the anonymous killer, Wendy is abducted by an unknown person. When the rest of the group is back at the castle they find George murdered inside one of the armor suits. Bill realizes that Jasper must be the killer, but when Bill confronts him with Rod's gun in his hand, it turns out the gun is unloaded and Jasper gets the advantage. Bill, Stuff and Wendy escape, but only to find themselves trapped in a secret passage inside the castle walls. As they get rescued by Clump, it turns out the passage leads directly to Sir Henry Morgan's treasure. Jasper follows and finds them, forcing them on to the treasure chamber. As they open the final passage door an axe falls down to kill Jasper. The rest of the group enter the treasure chamber and opens the chest, only to find the skeleton of Sir Henry Morgan himself. Disappointed the group members make their way back to the surface, where they meet a government agent, who offers to buy the whole island from Bill in order to build a naval base. After all the mysteries are solved, Bill and Wendy become a pair, making Bill worth $7,000,000.

Staff with Rhodeside & Harwell will now comb through the responses and will present that information to the Charlottesville Planning Commission on June 29. On Wednesday, the Housing Advisory Committee will discuss at noon changes being suggested by the executive directors of Habitat for Humanity and the Piedmont Housing Alliance. (meeting info)“They shared their early general concept/proposal with us,” said project manager Jennifer Koch. “However, the Cville Plans Together team is currently focused on summarizing the feedback we have received over the last six weeks and we are not yet proposing any [Future Land Use Map] revisions.” More on the future land use use plan in a future installment of the newsletter. *While there are no contested races for Albemarle’s legislative body, that’s not the case in surrounding counties. In Louisa County, two of the magisterial districts have contested races and another two have candidates who are running opposed. In the Green Springs district, incumbent Robert Babyok Jr. faces challenger Rachel Jones. In the Patrick Henry district, incumbent Fitzgerald Barnes faces William Woody Jr. Duane Adams is unopposed in the Mineral District and Tommy J. Barlow is unopposed in the Mountain Road District. In Greene County, Bill Martin will not seek another term representing the Stanardsville District. Abbey Heflin and Tina Deane are running to replace him. Marie Durrer is unopposed in the Midway District. Let’s move on to Nelson County. In the North District, incumbent Tommy Harvey will face Democrat Mary Cunningham. Harvey is an independent. In the Central District, incumbent Ernie Reed will face Republican Pamela Brice. Reed is a Democrat. Republican Jesse Rutherford faces no opposition in the East District. The top official for diversity and equity in Albemarle County is moving on, but not going far. Siri Russell is the new Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the School of Data Science at the University of Virginia. Russell has been the Director of Equity and Inclusion for Albemarle since 2018 and helped oversee removal of a Confederate statue in front of the court house last summer. She’s already a member of President Jim Ryan’s Council on UVA-Community Partnerships. In a press release on the School of Data Science’s website, Russell said she is excited about working to put theory into practice.“I’m interested in exploring how data science can empower communities, individuals, and policy-makers to improve outcomes and maximize societal benefits,” Russell said.Siri RussellThe company that owns Fashion Square Mall has filed for bankruptcy to protect its assets and attempt to stay in business. Many media outlets are reporting that Washington Prime Group filed for Chapter 11 on Sunday in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Southern District of Texas. You’re listening to Charlottesville Community Engagement. What are some of the factors that support, or inhibit, efforts to increase equity in our communities and housing developments? That’s the topic of an upcoming panel discussion held by the Central Virginia Regional Housing Partnership. Guests include Kathryn Howell of the RVA Eviction Lab, Hamilton Lombard of the Weldon Cooper Center, Andrew Mondschein at the UVA School of Architecture, and Stacy Pethia, Albemarle’s housing manager. The event begins at 12 p.m. on June 17, 2021. Register today! Today’s newsletter ends with a recap of the June 3 meeting of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission. The group will try again to get a federal grant for a planning study for the future of the Amtrak station on West Main Street. The agency applied last year when the grant program was known as a BUILD. Now it’s known as RAISE, for Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity. Jessica Hersh-Ballering is a transportation planner for the TJPDC. “We applied for BUILD the last time it was available,” Hersh-Ballering said. “We requested $711,000 to create a Charlottesville regional multimodal transportation station master plan to meet the capacity, accessibility, and safety demands of Charlottesville’s union station.”The application was not successful, but there’s still a need to expand the station in order to prepare for a future with more passenger service through the region. A second daily train between Roanoke and points north is expected in the near future. “The station doesn’t have the infrastructure of the amenities to adequately serve the existing ridership, let alone the increased ridership projected for 2045,” Hersh-Ballering said. It’s not just trains, though. The Virginia Breeze bus service between Danville and D.C. is expanding, and MegaBus also expects more service. Both currently stop at Arlington Boulevard at Barracks Road Shopping Center. Hersh-Ballering said the goal is to come up with a shared community vision for the station site, which is privately owned. The station is currently not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. “The station [is] missing a lot of important things, such as lighting, canopies to protect people from the weather, appropriate and useful signage, among other things,” Hersh-Ballering said. “There was also a lot of pooling of water on the platforms.”The money being sought now is for planning, and other funds will have to be found to pay for the upgrades. Charlottesville’s Union Station in 2009. What have your experiences been here?Hersh-Ballering made her comments at the June 3 edition of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission. The TJPDC agreed to a resolution to move forward with the grant application. Charlottesville’s representatives on the Commission were not present at the meeting. At that meeting, new officers were elected. Nelson County Supervisor Jesse Rutherford is the new chair. Greene County Supervisor Dale Herring is the new vice chair and Keith Smith of Fluvanna County is the treasurer. Nelson County will use the services of the TJPDC to apply for a pair of several transportation grants. Interim executive director Christine Jacobs explains. “One of them is for sidewalk infrastructure in downtown Lovingston and the other is for a potential application for the Gladstone Train Depot relocation of the old building,” Jacobs said. Work also continues to implement a regional tax on cigarettes.“At this time, we’ve had seven counties in our broader region endorsing resolutions and expressing interest in participating in the regional cigarette tax administration,” Jacobs said. After a closed session, the Commissioner opted to extend Jacobs service as interim executive director until the end of the calendar year. A search for a permanent executive director to replace Chip Boyles will begin on July 1. At a roundtable on happenings in each jurisdiction, Dylan Bishop of Nelson County had more information about the Gladstone project. “The Friends of Gladstone Depot is a non-profit agency that purchased this property from the railway, from CSX,” Bishop said. “They’re going to be moving that train station, converting it to a community center and transportation museum for the community there.” The Nelson County Board of Supervisors approved a rezoning for the project at its meeting last week. On Wednesday, the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors will have a public hearing on rezoning of land adjacent to the Bremo Power Station from agricultural to industrial to allow for a lined landfill to store coal ash. Here’s Supervisor Tony O’Brien.“They will retain their coal ash ponds tapped and sealed and covered in Fluvanna and they are proffering close to $50 million for that so that’s a big bonus for Fluvanna in terms of being able to ensure that the water quality in the Fork Union area remains stable and is not affected by any of their efforts,” O’Brien said. The proffered funding includes $47.1 million for water supply improvements, $2 million for transportation improvements, and half a million for Green Infrastructure to mitigate the impacts of the landfill. (meeting info)Greene Supervisor Dale Herring provided an update on the ongoing efforts of the county to leave the Rapidan Service Authority in order to build a reservoir that the entity has opted not to build. “Madison and Orange County did vote to allow us to leave the authority so we should be out of the Rapidan Service Authority in the near future and what that means for us is that we can actually begin to build the reservoir that we’ve already spent between $11 million to $13 million on,” The TJPDC will next meet on August 5 and will be in-person.

Hosts Doug Draper (Kansas 1992) and Bill Martin (Mississippi State 1975) welcome brothers to Phi Gamma Delta's new podcast, On the Banks. On the Banks is a six-part podcast series, where we will meet brothers through interview and storytelling. On the Banks pays homage to the chance meeting of John Templeton McCarty (Jefferson 1848) and Bolivar G. Krepps (Jefferson 1849) on the banks of the Sweetwater River on July 7, 1849. Two brothers who never met, connected 1,500 miles west of Canonsburg when heading to the California Gold Rush. No GPS and no cell phone…they found each other. On the Banks will focus on the power of that connection, meeting new brothers for the first time and embracing our shared values.

Because you asked for it, here’s a special ELECTION DAY 2020 edition of OFF-AIR with Carmen! With all the political noise and social tensions this year, we need some solid guidance. So, somewhat unplanned, my morning show partner Bill Martin and I sat at my kitchen table the weekend before the general election to have a conversation about a biblical view of government. Really, it’s more of a Bible study, so there are notes—3 pages of them—with all the Scriptures Bill referred to. You might want to print them, then grab a cup of coffee and get ready to learn!

Good morning, RVA! It’s 66 °F, and we’ve got hurricane remnants moving through the region today. Expect temperatures to stay right about where they are, rain, and some real-deal wind this afternoon. Stay safe!Water coolerAs of this morning, the Virginia Department of Health reports 1,345↗️ new positive cases of the coronavirus in the Commonwealth and 16↘️ new deaths as a result of the virus. VDH reports 136↗️ new cases in and around Richmond (Chesterfield: 53, Henrico: 48, and Richmond: 35). Since this pandemic began, 422 people have died in the Richmond region. The COVID Tracking Project has an interesting post up about the widening gap between hospitalizations and deaths in America as a result of COVID-19. Many, many people are still dying each day (1,025 yesterday), but, compared to the dark, New York-driven spring, fewer people who are hospitalized do end up dying. From the post: “This pattern in the data we compile is borne out by a recent finding that in one large New York healthcare system, patients hospitalized with COVID-19 had a greater than 25 percent chance of dying at the beginning of the pandemic. By August, COVID-19 patients admitted to the same hospital system had a less than eight percent chance of dying.” That same study credits new treatments and less burden on hospitals for keeping folks alive…and the fact that hospitalizations are up among younger people who are just more likely to survive. Positives and negatives.Make sure you take time to read this great piece by Kate Master in the Virginia Mercury about school reopening. Masters lays out how confusing and stressful these decisions are for local school boards who, ultimately, have full authority to make whatever reopening decisions they want. Part of that stress comes from a lack of data (which we’re slowly starting to piece together), part of it from a lack of statewide mandates from the Governor, and part of it from a federal government that’s often up to no good. A lot of things I write about are complicated, but school reopening is complicated.Related: In a press briefing yesterday, Richmond Public Schools Superintendent Jason Kamras said: “With increasing infection rates and the direction things seem to be heading, not just locally, but nationally, I am not optimistic, at this point, that we would be able to come back in person…We will continue to track the data, seek input from our families, and from our teachers. But, the number one priority is the health and safety of our students, our staff, and our families. So we’ll be watching this very, very closely.” Kamras goes on to say “Richmond is not Henrico and it is not Chesterfield…We are very different places.” which I think just perfectly illustrates everything Kate Masters wrote in her piece linked above.Yesterday, the Governor signed into law a dozen or so bills focused on police reform. You can read his press release—which amazingly contains direct links to LIS (that’s the State’s bill tracking website) for each and every bill that he signed. Gotta love that! As per always, I’m bad at state government, so I don’t know which of these bills should have gone further and which are solid, progressive reforms. I will point out, though, HB 5055 and SB 5035 which “permit civilian review boards the authority to issue subpoenas and make binding disciplinary decisions.” Hopefully these new laws will clear up any of the legal gray area we had locally about the power of the Civilian Review Board Richmond (and maybe Henrico!) is trying to stand up. Speaking of, I wonder what’s up with our Civilian Review Board Task Force…Quick follow up: RPD did end up arresting and charging four people at this week’s march in solidarity with folks in Philly. Police charged one person with “obstructing free passage,” another with “obstruction of justice, carrying a concealed weapon and pedestrian in the roadway,” a third with “inciting a riot and throwing a missile at an occupied vehicle,” and the fourth with “assault on a law enforcement officer.” I wish it were easier to track these charges and see if anything comes of them. I get names and mugshots emailed to me instantly, but I never hear if these charges are dropped, people are convicted, or what. Related, and more seriously, I’d like this information for murder suspects, too.One final police-related bit of follow up, the Richmond Times-Dispatch has an editorial calling for the RPD’s newly-formed External Advisory Committee to release the names of its members and open its meetings up to the media. I wrote similar things earlier this week, but, after hearing from a member of the committee, I think I may have been too flip. While I do think that the Richmond Police Department have burnt up too much public trust over the past few months to allow this committee to remain unnamed, I deeply appreciate how much work a volunteer committee like this is for regular folks. It’s possible to appreciate and value the people who want to get involved and make Richmond a better, safer place, while simultaneously recognizing that, in this particular situation, those people should probably be willing to be part of a truly public-facing group.Today at 2:00 PM, ChamberRVA will host a Shared Values Summit featuring Bill Martin from the Valentine, Christy Coleman previously from the American Civil War Museum and now the ED of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, prolific Richmond artist Hamilton Glass, and the president and vice president of the Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce (who will talk about their work in reparations for the Tulsa massacre). This is a solid group of folks and might could be a good way to spend your rainy afternoon. Tickets are $25.Heads up: If you’d planned on heading over to the Richmond and Henrico Health District’s community testing event today, it is canceled on account of hurricane remnants. However! If you need a COVID-19 test you should get one, and you can check out this big list of places offering them—to folks with or without insurance.Via /r/rva: “In honor of the upcoming election, my fiancé made (Abigail) Spamburgers and (Nick) Fritos.

The upcoming US election is happening in one of the strangest circumstances in history: an unprecedented social and economic lockdown in response to coronavirus, nationwide rioting and violence surrounding the Black Lives Matter and Antifa movements, and a fear of fascism and white supremacism.At the centre of all this has been Donald Trump. He is like a lightning rod, electrically concentrating passions of immense hatred from one side, and devotion from another.Trump's politics, however, are not traditionally Republican or Democrat and he has attacked opponents from both parties, including his own. He has caused much confusion and shaken up the political landscape.People on both extremes seem to agree his re-election will have tremendous historical consequences for America – and everything they believe it stands for: one side says he will save it, the other says he will destroy it forever.Join me, Dr. Kirk Meighoo, to discuss these issues with Marxist, Bill Martin, and former Marxist, Michael Rectenwald, philosophers and public intellectuals who support Donald Trump with very interesting analyses not found in mainstream discourse
