This week on “Sports Legends of the Carolinas,” a guest who earned that descriptor throughout a basketball coaching career that spanned half a century at various levels of the game: former University of North Carolina men's head coach Roy Williams. Williams won three national titles as the head coach of the Tar Heels, and retired in 2021 as the only head coach in college basketball history to win more than 400 games at two different schools — 418 at Kansas, and 485 at North Carolina, his alma mater. Williams was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame back in 2007 — before two of his three championships — and the court at the Smith Center in Chapel Hill is named for him. On Part 1 of this wide-ranging interview, Williams reflects on his sudden retirement, his rivalry with former Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski, and consoling Marcus Paige after the heartbreaking 2016 title game loss to Villanova. On Part 2 of our conversation, Williams talks about the fellow Tar Heel namesake for his son, Scott; his current role as a doting grandfather; and why it seemed like he never used those dadgum time outs.

I think we can all agree that everyone goes through their angsty teen phase where they don't want to listen to their parents and want to operate to the beat of their own drum, but for 16-year-old Adam Sapikowski, the beat of his drum was a little off. Adam was the son of his extremely successful parents Jim and Alison Sapikowski and lived a life of “If I want it, I get it” which was in direct result of his parent's business. The family lived in a 5,000 sq ft home worth an upwards of $680,000 back in 2005, and he attended Durham Academy, which at the time cost $16,000 per year per student. Adam drove a brand-new Chevy Tahoe and had access to his parent's line of credit somewhere around $48,000 at any given time. Adam and the rest of the Sapikowski children were set up for success and lived in a loving home environment, so when Adam's grades started to slip and Prom was approaching rapidly, his parents wouldn't allow him to get his way unless they saw improvement. Just two nights before his Prom, Adam would allegedly get into a verbal argument with his father Jim and it would have a deadly conclusion. Listen to Tiffany tell Sam about the curious tale of a teenager gone rogue over a seemingly small disagreement that just may have been avoided if only Adam got help for his mental health.

More fallout from the 2022 midterms

American politics may be ugly right now, but it could get worse after the 2022 midterms. Donald Trump looks for someone to blame for the Republicans underwhelming performance at the polls.  Breitbart breaks down the numbers from the 2022 midterms:    In five additional Senate races, Republican candidates' numbers were also overstated in the polls, as seen in the difference between polling averages and projected outcomes. Those include Ohio (1.4 points), North Carolina (2.6 points), Arizona (5.3 points), Georgia (2.3 points), and Nevada (0.7 points).  Not all voting tabulations are finalized. Nevada and Arizona remain undetermined, and Georgia will head to a runoff. Republicans need to win two out of three to retake the Senate.  Though polling overstated Republican support in the Senate races, House Republican candidates earned nearly six million more votes nationwide than Democrats, overperforming in the generic congressional ballot polling.  The overperformance, however, did not directly translate to a red wave flipping many seats from Democrat to Republican.  Also, Richard Lewelling of The Weather Channel joins the broadcast to talk about Tropical Storm Nicole making its way through the Carolinas today and tomorrow. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

What will remain of Hurricane Nicole is forecast to bring heavy rain and gusty winds to North Carolina and South Carolina late Thursday, Friday, and into the first part of Saturday. The biggest impact from the storm will be scattered tornadoes and flooding, which will be brought on by both heavy rains and high tides. Along the coast, the storm surge could cause flooding along Carolina shortlines. Heavy rains are expected across the Carolinas, but especially at the coast and in the higher elevations of the western North Carolina foothills and mountains. Regardless of the storm's name and classification, the impacts for the Carolinas will remain likely the same despite the storm's weakening from a hurricane to a tropical storm or tropical depression.

Charlotte Smith, this week's guest on “Sports Legends of the Carolinas,” is about to enter her 12th year as Elon University's women's basketball coach. But the all-time winningest coach at the school is arguably better known for her own college playing career, thanks to making one of the most remarkable shots in NCAA tournament basketball history — a buzzer-beating three-pointer that won the 1994 NCAA title for the University of North Carolina. After college, the Shelby, N.C., native's pro career led her to Italy, where Smith was MVP of the Italian All-Star Game in the 1995-96 season, and then to the WNBA's Charlotte Sting in 1999. In Part 1 of our conversation, I talked to Smith about overcoming fear to meet the moment on the court; the life-changing role of coaches off the court; and her being a pioneering slam dunker in the women's game. On Part 2 of our conversation, Smith looks back at the road to her “blessed place,” Elon; getting posterized in the movie Juwanna Mann; and the immense strength she has found in asking for help.

Tropical storm-forecast conditions are possible across portions of the Carolinas Friday and Saturday from Nicole. Forecast to become a hurricane before landfall along the east coast of Florida Thursday, Nicole will then swing into the Southeast. While the exact forecast track of Nicole remains uncertain, the storm is expected to bring heavy rains, gusty winds, and coastal impacts, including the possibility of storm surge, rough surf, and erosion to North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. NASA is also closely monitoring forecast weather conditions at Cape Canaveral, where the Space Launch System and Orion capsule for the Artemis-1 mission are sitting on Launch Pad 39B. As of Monday, NASA continues to keep the vehicle at the launch pad but, as they did for Ian, could elect to move the vehicle back to the safety of the Vehicular Assembly Building. The time-consuming move could jeopardize the planned launch attempts next week for this mission back to the moon.

Life In the Carolina's Podcast

On this episode of the Life in the Carolinas podcast, Carl sits down with John Santa, founder of the Marathon Jam, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which seeks to improve the lives of injured Veterans, First Responders, and their families. Joining Carl and John is vascular surgeon Charles, who speaks to us about his journey to making the switch from “actively practicing surgeon to actively practicing musician”. The team at the Marathon Jam lives by their motto, Curatus Per Musica (“Healing Through Music”)—uniting a diverse group of people with the common goal of raising money and performing outreach to improve the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for us. They do this through an annual fundraiser which features musicians and artists of all ages and styles to play music and create art for twelve straight hours. These musicians generate donations by securing sponsors for each hour they participate in the jam. In 2015, The Marathon Jam created Outreach Programs to help those who cannot come to the Jams, by sending artists and musicians into VA and other treatment centers to facilitate the rehabilitation of our Veterans and First Responders. Since 2009, the recipients of the Marathon Jam's annual fundraiser have been North Carolina's Fort Bragg Fisher House and Camp Lejeune Fisher House, with over $500,000 raised for the latter. In today's conversation, John and Charles draw inspiring parallels between medicine and music, passionately speaking on his life-altering decision to shift career paths while continuing to carry out his mission to provide healing to as many people as he can touch. In fact, they perfectly illustrate this by briefly talking about their fascinating realization that the use of certain types of music actually facilitates healing and recovery in the operating room. “Music is curative,” says Charles. “It was time for me to go from one mode to the other and still be able to provide that for people.” He adds: “When I first made this move, I was calling it ‘retirement'. But it really isn't. It's ‘career change'.” After telling some of their favorite stories of healing and hope through the initiative of Marathon Jam, John and Charles speak on how they see the future of the organization. What started out as a grassroots movement over 12 years ago is gaining steam throughout the state. “Music is a way to communicate with human vulnerability. We're not stopping. The need is there.”   Learn more about the Marathon Jam at www.marathonjam.org.

Minor repairs identified through detailed inspections are mostly completed. Preparations are underway to ready the mobile launcher and VAB for rollout by configuring the mobile launcher arms and umbilicals and continuing to retract the access platforms surrounding SLS and Orion as work is completed. Testing of the reaction control system on the twin solid rocket booters, as well as the installation of the flight batteries, is complete and those components are ready for flight. Engineers also have replaced the batteries on the interim cryogenic propulsion stage (ICPS), which was powered up for a series of tests to ensure the stage is functioning properly. Teams successfully completed final confidence checks for the ICPS, launch vehicle stage adapter and the core stage forward skirt. Teams are continuing to work in the intertank area of the core stage and upper section of the boosters to replace batteries. These areas will remain open to support remaining battery and flight termination system activities. Flight termination system testing will start next week on the intertank and booster and once complete, those elements will be ready for launch. Charging of the secondary payloads in the Orion stage adapter is complete. Teams recharged, replaced and reinstalled several of the radiation instruments and the crew seat accelerometer inside Orion ahead of the crew module closure for roll. Technicians will refresh the specimens for the space biology payload at the launch pad. The crew module and launch abort system hatches are closed for the roll to the pad, and engineers will perform final closeouts at the pad prior to launch. NASA is targeting the next launch attempt of the Artemis I mission for Monday, Nov. 14 with liftoff of the Space Launch System "SLS" rocket carrying the Orion spacecraft planned during a 69-minute launch window that opens at 12:07 a.m. EST.

Over the past two years, we have seen technology use in the classroom skyrocket. From assessment tools to curriculum support, these technologies are essential to classrooms in districts across the country. Hand in hand with the bloom in learning technologies, inclusive technologies have become a major topic of discussion in the education world. In part two of this two-part series sponsored by the Center on Inclusive Technology & Education Systems (CITES) at CAST, our guests discuss how to implement a technology program that meets the needs of all learners. Step by step- setting standards, creating guides for teachers, sourcing and vetting vendors, and communicating support, this episode explores how district leaders can implement a comprehensive program to support all students with stories and examples from district leaders themselves. Today's guests are two leaders from the Jenks Public Schools in Jenks, Oklahoma – District Assistive Technology Coordinator Janna Greathouse and Edtech Coordinator Samantha Reid. Janna graduated from the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma with a Master's degree in Speech Pathology. She has practiced as a speech-language pathologist in public school systems in the Carolinas and in Oklahoma, where she currently works. . Her latest pursuits involve efforts to increase accessibility, equity, and inclusion district-wide so that students are empowered to be experts in their own learning and are supported in doing so. Samantha obtained her M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction with an Emphasis on Technology Integration in Education from UNLV in 2006, after which she began working in EdTech. Prior to moving into EdTech, she taught in Elementary School. Samantha is an ISTE Certified Education as well as receiving several other certifications and Micro-credentials through the years.

They look at every single lease. They walk every single property. They keep a track of all that, but we help keep track of them as well to make sure, okay, you know, did you do all these things? And they always do, but we still have the responsibility to our investors that we did check every single lease agreement in the 227-unit apartment. We did walk every property.

Glad to be here.  [00:00:59] Sam Wilson: Absolutely. The pleasure is mine. Matt, there are three questions I ask every guest who comes from 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?  [00:01:08] Matt Hansen: Well, I started, as you know, a retired corporate executive, which prepared me really well because buying multifamily, basically you're buying a business. So that was my background. And then how I got there, I joined a high price mastermind out of Dallas. I live in Michigan and that's how I started to really passively invest initially for a couple of years. Then I started running deals as a general partner, and now we're just doing, having fun. I partner with all my friends. We buy properties in Texas, Florida, Arizona, Georgia a little bit, some of the Carolinas, and that's kind of where we're at. We're just looking at growing our portfolio and helping as many people as possible get their money out of Wall Street and put it into Main Street in apartments.  [00:01:47] Sam Wilson: I love it.  Absolutely love it. That's it. That's certainly a topic that is near and dear to my heart, especially, you know, helping people go from crud, what do I do with my money to then, I had somebody recently call me and they're like, hey, wait, so is this a return on my investment or return of it? I'm like, That's a return on it. They're like, wow, and these just keep coming. I'm like, yeah, it's fun, isn't it? So good for you for helping people out with that. That's awesome. What was your corporate career?  [00:02:13] Matt Hansen: I was a global supply team director, so it was a Fortune 100 company, so we have products at 86 countries around the world. And my job was to make sure these hazardous materials got in planes, trains, automobiles, barges, you name it, we shipped it. And I was a global director, so I had teams stationed all in every area of the world that were responsible for that. Pretty high-stress stuff. A lot of cost-benefit analysis, risk analysis. That was my job. So that's why I transitioned to multifamily, running business was so simple for me and fun.  [00:02:44] Sam Wilson: That's what I was going to ask. Is this easy for you?  [00:02:47] Matt Hansen: So much easier. The moving parts are pretty minimal here, compared to moving chemicals, you know, around the world in containers and vessels and all sorts of stuff. So, yeah, this is fun stuff. It's really fun to me because the stuff I had to deal with before. I retired. kinda in the middle of COVID. So I avoided a lot of that supply chain stuff, so it worked out pretty well 'cause I know it's a nightmare to be in supply chain.  [00:03:09] Sam Wilson: I can only imagine, can only imagine. That's fantastic. What was the impetus to get involved in commercial real estate, specifically multifamily.  [00:03:19] Matt Hansen: It was really 2008, 2009. I lost about $300,000 in the stock market. My wife and I have always done single-family home flipping here and there just as a side hustle, but that's when the light bulb went on. Hold it. I have like a hundred percent of my investments in Wall Street. No control over it. Those guys are running their own show out there. And I worked for a large corporation so I kind of know how things operate. So that's when I kind of light went on. We did a little bit of more of single family flipping. And then about six, seven years ago, I got into large multifamily and it's no work at all. It's just running a business and that's stuff I was trained to do. That's kind of what it was, is to get out of Wall Street, protect my, and now my portfolio, 60% of it's in real estate, right? 20% still in the stock market stuff I can't get out and the other 20% venture capital stuff. So it was really, Wall Street pushed me out, said, hey, you are going to do something else. [00:04:05] Sam Wilson: Right. Yeah, no, no. There's nothing like the pain of a large loss that you go, oh, okay. I need to change my approach here. You came in as a limited partner. That was kind of your first experience. Would you recommend that to anybody else looking to get in or is another path you should, you would recommend they take?  [00:04:23] Matt Hansen: Strongly recommend coming as a limited partner. I did a lot of limited partner. Well, I had some 401k money that I was able to eventually roll over into a self-directed IRA. But yeah, because that way you see what's really going on without having any skin in the game. You're a limited partner, you're not liable for anything, thinking let's go sideways. But you learn, how does a good general partner manage? How do they treat you? And I learned just as much what not to do as what to do, and I've invested in probably a dozen deals or so. So that was a great learning, so before you go, it's kind of before you go off and be a general partner, you need to know what it's like to be sitting in the limited partners position, and are you feeding them information or keeping them updated on what's going on with the property? Are you letting them, What's going on the market? Those are the types of things that I really value and I make sure all my investors, full transparency. There's no hidden stuff. I tell you what's going on at all times. I think that's pretty critical.  [00:05:14] Sam Wilson: Absolutely. Yeah. And it sounds like maybe that was one of the things that you aspired to do well after being involved as limited partner. It sounds like maybe communication was one of those things that you wish you had more of.  [00:05:26] Matt Hansen: Exactly. Yes.  [00:05:27] Sam Wilson: That's a great piece of advice. Was there anything else that you took away from the limited partnership experience that you said either I want to repeat or I want to do better? [00:05:36] Matt Hansen: Mostly, the communication really was the number one thing. The markets, do your own due diligence. I had one deal that went sideways that I passively invested in, and it's cause I didn't vet all the partners and I should've. I just vetted the primary one I was investing with. But the other two ended up running the show and he stepped away. Again, that was a lesson learned. Vet everybody, all the partners, who are the asset managers, who's going to run that asset, who's their backup, most importantly. And that's what I didn't check, that was one of my biggest lessons was. Vet all the partners that you're investing with.  [00:06:05] Sam Wilson: What do you say to that? Who is their backup? Like, how do you guys handle, because I asked to sponsor this a couple of years ago on a deal I was investing in. I said, so what happens if the two of you get run over by a bus? Like, then who's running the show? And they didn't really have a good answer, which was fine. I mean, it was a good buddy of mine. I invested anyway in the deal, but we made a lot of money on it. It was great. But even so, it's a question that's still lingered. That was like, well that's, I wonder how that works out. What do you guys do today?  [00:06:31] Matt Hansen: We do have two people that are the primaries at all times. They're on the calls with the property manager once a week, so there's two people that are already fully in the loop and knows what's going on. And then there's usually four or five people that are general partners and all of us could step up and run it, asset manage, no problem. We all have, one of my partners has 10,000 units. The bench strength is so strong that if the two primaries walk away, there's probably three more that are just as good as them that can step up to run the show. And that's why I say vet all the primary partners, not just one and two. That's great. But the third, Yeah, we've got third and fourth there in our deals.  [00:07:05] Sam Wilson: Right. That's a great piece of advice and probably something as I passively invest with other operators around the country, I don't spend enough time probably going beyond the primaries. Like, okay, this is who I know I'm working with. But getting into the bench and figuring out who the entire roster is is, you know, probably an important part of that. You went from the LP side of things to where you then said, hey, we're going to launch into the general partnership side. What was the driver there for you? Were you bored, you were in retirement? Why become a general partner even?  [00:07:34] Matt Hansen: Yeah. I was moonlighting, so I was a side hustle and still working as an executive, but I got to the level where I wasn't, wasn't really working that hard. I didn't really have a full-time job. I was there for what I knew, not what I did. So I would show up for meetings and things like that, but I still have a lot of extra time in my day. And then it's when I thought, well, I'm doing this limited partner thing, I got time I could start doing general partner. So what I did though is I would run the deal from LOI, letter of intent to close. I didn't do any of the fancy stuff outside. I didn't do any outside marketing. I created the marketing materials, but I didn't market it as myself because there was a little, I didn't want to get in trouble with my corporate gig. So for about four years. I did that behind the scenes stuff, and then when I retired about two years ago, then I could openly say, hey, this is what I'm doing, you know, which was a real, created a deficit because I've been doing this for six years, multifamily, but nobody knew it until recently, so I had to kind of start developing my track record with these people that don't know me, even though I've been doing it for six years. I've done great deals that went full cycle. So that was a bit of a challenge, keeping it secret, if you will. And then eventually, I don't want to retired, I could just talk openly. So it was creating a runway. So when I did retire, I had another business. I'm never, I'm like you, Sam. I know, I can tell already you're going to, the person's going to work until you're 80, 'cause that's the type of person you are. You're not going to sit and do nothing. You got to do something. And this is fun.  [00:08:56] Sam Wilson: Right. That's absolutely right. No, I think that's great. So you went into the general partnership role. What were some of the things or some of the methods maybe that you have used to take down deals? I guess I'm really curious when someone steps into this with a brand new perspective of, like, maybe you weren't brand new 'cause you were a limited partner, and you're GP behind the scenes. But now you're coming on the guy in charge of the show. So what did you do maybe differently than other people were doing? Or what did you repeat that you would say, hey, this is how we're going to, the method we're going to use to acquire, own, and operate assets?  [00:09:30] Matt Hansen: It really came from my corporate experience. So I'm a Green Belt Sigma trained, so I have this methodology of, you know, measure, analyze, improve, and control. And so you just implemented this, so you're buying an apartment complex. It's just a project and I used to work on billion-dollar projects where we're putting in a new supply chain plan. We have to figure out what the supply chain network looks like. Same thing for this. We're buying an apartment. You need to make sure your attorney's on board, your insurance company, your tax person, you know, your property manager. You assign those tasks with deadlines and specific action plans. So there's a formula. So the group that I belong to had a pretty good formula that we just kind of followed, but I made sure we had the operating discipline to follow that. You check every single box. You don't leave one out, but you're buying a $40 million apartment complex. You've got to do your due diligence, and you check the due diligence of other people as well. So I think my corporate experience was priceless for this 'cause it was easy to step in and say, I run a literally a billion dollar project. This is a 40 million. And it's much simpler. So that's really what it is. It's processes, systems, and a control plan, which most people aren't familiar with. If you're going to do it, follow up and measure, measure, measure to make sure it's getting done.  [00:10:41] Sam Wilson: Can you define that maybe more clearly when you say a control plan? [00:10:46] Matt Hansen: Well, specifically for, say, due diligence, we have phenomenal property managers that we work with, but we still help confirm what they do. They look at every single lease. They walk every single property. They keep a track of all that, but we help keep track of them as well to make sure, okay, you know, did you do all these things? And they always do, but we still have the responsibility to our investors that we did check every single lease agreement in the 227-unit apartment. We did walk every property. We did look at all the contracts for all the third-party providers to make sure are those tier and conditions favorable. Was there a kickback that they had gotten earlier that applied to this year? Did we get that money? There's all these little things that if you don't have a process in place to double check it and to make sure it happens, it might not and it could be catastrophic. [00:11:34] Sam Wilson: What did you do? Did you build those processes or when you came on board, were there other team members that had kind of already, you know, because that takes time? That takes time and experience to build those. How did you perfect those?  [00:11:48] Matt Hansen: Our team, our mastermind had a, like a 42-line item checklist, and then that's really most people just kind of gloss over the whole thing was, did you implement it? That's what my job was, to make sure. So a lot of it was kind of done for me. Yeah, I would tweak some things here and there, but 90% it was already ready for me. And that's why I paid all this money to be part of this group, this elite group. And they really did a good job. And I'll say it, it's Think Multifamily out of Dallas, Mark and Tamiel Kenny, I'm going to go ahead and say they're phenomenal. It's a small group of people, like there's over a hundred. It's not one of those big groups that there's thousands and thousands. I personally know every person in this group, and Mark and Tamiel have our backs with expertise. I've been doing it for six years, but every single deal, you know, something new comes up that you haven't seen before. Well, Mark's been doing this for 20 years. He's seen everything. He's been through every cycle, so I've got that back. He's always got your backs, and that's a big advantage of being part of a group like that. I'm not off on my own doing that.  [00:12:41] Sam Wilson: Absolutely. How are you guys finding right now? I mean, multifamily has been on a tear for a while. What are you guys doing that separates you from all the rest of the people out there buying multifamily assets?  [00:12:55] Matt Hansen: Well, we do a lot of deals. I think in the last few years we've done 103 deals, and brokers love us. Sellers love us. The deal we're doing in Florida right now, we bought from the same seller earlier this year, and I don't think we're actually the highest, highest offer, but they knew certainty of close, we're great to work with. We're going to do what we say we're going to do. We're not going to retrade at the end and all that stuff. So our track record. My partners in my group, it's so strong. There's a little town called Decatur, Georgia, outside of Atlanta. We've got like, I think eight or 10 deals there now because the brokers just love us. So they feed you deals if you're, if you prove you can close and you're easy to work with. So that's really, and again, it's an unfair business as you know. It's a relationship business. And our relationships are so strong because we perform so well, we get deals that other people don't. [00:13:46] Sam Wilson: Right, right. Yeah, that's absolutely simple. Talk to me about interest rate risks, what you guys are doing to hedge that. How are you funding and arranging the capital stack maybe differently now than what you were even 12, 18 months ago?  [00:13:59] Matt Hansen: You know, this, it's a leading question now. You've got to have your your rate locks and all your other cap locks and all those things. So things that we're costing us two years ago, $40,000 to, you know, say, okay, when we have to have a bridge loan, in three years, we're going to refinance it. It's going to control the rate. It's not going to go up. You know, 3%, it controls that. So you kind of prepay it. Well, a few years ago, we have a deal in Memphis that I think we paid $40,000 for our rate lock, a rate cap, and now it's like, hundreds of thousands of dollars. The future's so uncertain. But we factor that into our underwriting. Interest rates have went up now, you know, a couple of percent, but it's surprising. When we rerun the numbers and it's like a fraction of a percent return impact to our investors typically. The numbers have changed a lot. We're not saying, you know, when I did do deals two years ago, it was 10 to 14% cash on cash returns. Now we're saying seven or eight. So we have had to adjust that and it's tough for investors to take that, but it's the market. We're not going to say we can do 10% 'cause you can't anymore. You know, you've got to say the range has gone down because the market has changed. That's what we've done. We've adjusted our expectations of the investors along with the market. And then just do everything possible to control that number and try to predict what's going to happen the future. [00:15:11] Sam Wilson: Absolutely. And that's something I was actually working on a spreadsheet this morning. And it was kind of a little bit of a head-scratcher. It's like, gosh, as we watch inflation skyrocket, As we watch interest rates go up, the unfortunate reality is that returns go down. It's like, oh, man. Like you'd kind of think you'd want 'em to like track in parallel in some weird way to where it's like, oh, okay, well I know that everything costs more. And I know that we could, but look, hey, we're all making more money along the way, so it evens out. That's just simply not the case. And we were even working on arranging a debt deal and it was like, okay, well, gosh, like, anyway, I won't bore you with the deal specifics, but it just, I guess, I'm just agreeing with your point there. It's like, oh, we just have to reset investor expectations. How has your business for you personally changed and why? In the last 24 months,  [00:16:03] Matt Hansen: I've really focused on capital raising and putting earnest money into deals and because it's so much work to run a deal now. Like, two years ago, pre-COVID it was so simple. It seemed like it 'cause now you have insurance are going up crazy and then interest rates with the lending brokers and, and all of those things. So I've actually chose to say, okay, my partners are stronger than that, stronger than me and that, and they really enjoy it. And I've known them for years and years so I know I can trust them with the process in place that I've kind of taken a backseat to it 'cause I'm retired, I don't want to work that hard. So that's how I pivot Sam, is like I backed off a little bit then I'm allowing the people that are much younger than me, you know, in some cases that want to really, really work that hard. And then I of course work with them on, you know, counseling to make sure things done right. But that's kind of how I pivoted 'cause it has make it more challenging to find deal. It is really has been.  [00:16:53] Sam Wilson: What has that process been like for you? I know you said that you had to kind of keep what you were doing under wraps until you retired, probably, if I can find the word here today, once you retire. But then once you got out, you're like, hey, you can tell everybody what you're doing, which is critical to raising capital, is being able to tell their people what you're doing. What's that process been like though, as you've kind of stepped away from the deal? What did you call it? LOI to close and now it's, hey, I'm going to focus on capital raising. Talk to me about that a little bit and just the fundraising, capital raising side of your business.  [00:17:23] Matt Hansen: It's really about education, education, education. I remember when I was new to investing that some of the general partners I had invested with didn't really disclose everything to me. They didn't, you know, I read through the PPM 120 pages and all that stuff, but they didn't tell me, like, the distributions aren't going to start for six months to a year because we have to renovate the units. I had my first three deals. Nobody told me that. It was like, so I make sure that I'm overly transparent with my investors or potential investors 'cause I know what that was like sitting in that position, and I walk them through moving their money from an IRA to a self-directed IRA. I get on the phone with the financial institutions with them and help them do those things because I know how challenging it is. But I think that's the limited partner in me. It was like, okay, I handhold everybody with white glove treatment through the whole process because I was that guy, six, seven years ago. So I think that's really what the big advantage is that I know all that stuff and that I know what it's like to be that individual. So it's really education, and just recognize it may take two years before somebody's willing to take the leap to invest. And sometimes it's two days, you know? It just depends and everybody's different. And I'm just accepting of that because I want them to be comfortable with their investment. [00:18:32] Sam Wilson: That's exactly it. Yeah. And I think the funny thing is that the more comfortable I think I've become with just letting people do what's in their own time, the more money comes in easier. It's like, you know what, hey, if this is for you, get in. If it's not okay, don't. It doesn't bother me one way or another. This is the opportunity. And the bus is leaving, so if you want to go over the ride, I'm driving. So let's go. And if you don't get in, no problem. And I think that what's been funny is just watching people pile in. It's like, oh, yeah, it all went in on. They're like, okay just the more you relax, the easier this becomes. And, you know, you want people to do what's best for them. I mean, that's the whole point of bringing limited partners on is to do great things for them along the way. So that's fantastic. Tell me this, Matt, when you think about risk in the marketplace, when you think about what you guys are buying, when you think about things that could go sideways, is there anything that comes to mind? And if so, how are you guys mitigating that?  [00:19:25] Matt Hansen: We're still buying the Class B, C plus properties and you know the saying that, well, when the economy's bad, the people in the A's move down to the B's. When the economy's good, the people in the C's move up to the B's. So we still stay in that medium value, light value add in the Class B stuff. But I know people that are buying class a's properties, but your returns are not going to be the same. And we've got the model in place, we've got large construction companies that will travel anywhere around the United States for us to do the exteriors for us. So they come and boom, do that quickly. We know like in trust. And we know the markets, we only play in the markets with high population growth and high employment growth, so Florida, Texas, Arizona. It's still almost not, it's not, say, dumbing proof. You have to have the systems in place and the connections. But you know, I love Michigan, but I don't invest in Michigan. And I have investors here like, why don't you buy something to Michigan? Well, there's negative population growth and there's really not the place where I want you to put your money. Does Edward Jones going to tell you to invest in your local town? No, they're going to put you in whatever stocks they think are going to make the most money. And it's not in your hometown probably. But try to relate to that. So we've got a system in place. We've been doing this long enough that we stay in markets that even though the market goes rough. I think we're going to be fine. Our properties in Florida, there's still strong, strong demand. We're projecting, you know, $200 to $300 month rent growth after we've renovated the units just ‘cause there's so many people moving there. So if that's how we protect our investors. We don't invest in markets that we don't have the data to prove that, for next 10 years, this is going to be a great market. This is where we want to put money.  [00:20:53] Sam Wilson: Right. Yeah. And Florida is one of those places where people are just going in droves. So that's certainly a great leading indicator for a place to buy apartment complexes. That's awesome. Matt, one last question for you. If you could go back through your investing career and if, or actually two last questions. They're both sides of the same coin. First question is there anything that you feel like you've done really well that other people should emulate?  [00:21:19] Matt Hansen: I would say running a deal and really the investor communication and that's so critical. And people, like, are worried about the deal and they don't worry about their clients. And again, I worked for a corporation. My early years I was a customer service manager at a chemical, large chemical company. So I dealt with, Rubbermaid were my customers a big huge was multi-million. You took care of them. I treat my investors that brings a hundred thousand as I did my multi-billion dollar clients, and I think that's something people lose sight of a little bit. They worry about the deal and they're not, they're forgetting about their investors. I think that's my secret sauce is I really take care of mine because they make it possible. They're the ones bringing in the down payment.  [00:21:52] Sam Wilson: Correct. Correct. Absolutely. Now, if there's anything you could do differently, or a mistake you could help our listeners avoid, what would that be? [00:21:59] Matt Hansen: It's really vetting, vetting, vetting. You're investing in a deal. You should be doing due diligence as well. Take a look at the market. You can Google anything, right? Take a look at the crime rate. Take a look at the population growth. Don't take everything at face value, particularly when you are new. Like, now I invest in all sorts of venture capital stuff. I invest in a vineyard with one of my close friends. I didn't even read anything 'cause I've known her so well that I just signed the documents and sent it in. But that's a situation where this is something I've personally known with, known for a long time. But do you do diligence, particularly when you're new, and even if you're not, you know, make sure you're just double-checking things here? [00:22:36] Sam Wilson: Absolutely, and that's always amazed me when people are willing to spend a hundred thousand dollars with me, but don't spend the 500 bucks in a daytime to fly out there and actually see it. It's like, come see this with me anytime, any day. It's 500 bucks in a day your time, and you might find out you hate the project and walk away and that's okay. That's okay, but at least you did your due diligence and so I've actually made that a personal rule until this year when again, going back to the who I'm investing with is more important than what I'm investing in. Yes. This I kind of broke that rule a few times and I'm just like, just send me the docs. It's fine. We're just go, go.  [00:23:14] Matt Hansen: But you know their track record, Sam, right? You do have a comp and your expertise is so high that you look at something real quick and say, Yep, this is good. So there is a difference. And if you're new in somebody or you're a veteran investor like you.  [00:23:25] Sam Wilson: Correct. Yeah, there is that differentiator there. But still it is amazing what people will or will not do when it comes to spending that amount of money or investing that amount of money in the due diligence part of it. So that's really fantastic. Matt, I've appreciated having you on the show today. Thanks for coming on. It's been great learning about you, your corporate career transition to limited partner and then to a general partner. And even how within the general partnership side of the business, you've even transitioned now to focus almost exclusively on the capital raising side of things and working with your investors. So certainly appreciate your insight, your market insights, and how you guys are finding opportunity and value today. If our listeners want to get in touch with you, learn more about you, what is the best way to do that?  [00:24:02] Matt Hansen: Just go to hansenholdings.com.  [00:24:05] Sam Wilson: That's H A N S E N holdings.com for those of you who are listening. We'll also make sure that's included there in the show notes. Matt, thank you again for coming on today. I certainly appreciate it.  [00:24:15] Matt Hansen: My pleasure, Sam. Thank you.

For the second time in 2022, there will be a $1 billion jackpot. Powerball's grand prize surged over the milestone figure after no one claimed the jackpot in Saturday night's drawing. Talk about a Halloween trick ... or treat, depending how your tickets turned out. The odds of winning the jackpot are about as long as the number of dollars in the jackpot, but folks are trying their luck with a few dollars hoping to win big.

A lot of people assume that memory problems happen as we age. That doesn't have to be the case. There's a lot that you can start doing now to keep your mind healthy into your later years. Today's guest is here to tell you how she runs a successful business helping people keep their minds sharp!   About Francine Waskavitz Francine is a Speech-Language Pathologist and an integrative nutrition coach with a passion for helping seniors and older adults maximize their long-term memory and cognitive health. She has always been a bit of an old soul. Francine thinks that's what draws her to work with the older crowd. She feels at home with them! Francine has spent the last 10 years as an SLP working with the 55 and older crowd in care centers around the Carolinas. She truly believes that even though she is the one leading the therapies during that time, she learns even more from her clients than they do from her.   It's Never Too Early to Address Memory Loss Francine explains why memory loss is never normal. Sure, memory will likely change as we age. However, your regular ability to easily recollect things should not be ignored. Francine works hard to dismantle the myth that memory loss and aging must necessarily go together. Francine wants people to seek help as soon as they realize that their memory is getting worse. It's not something to just write off. Early intervention can go a long way to reducing larger problems down the road.   Building and Growing a Health Business We also get into how Francine built a successful business around memory coaching. Much of this she credits to the Nutrition Business Accelerator. Although she is a Speech Language Pathologist, not a dietitian, Francine says she still found a huge amount of value in the program. She learned that building a process around moving clients from a problem to a solution through mindset-building is a winning formula. With this, she has grown her business and plans to take it even further. Have you noticed changes to your memory?

E184: Carolina Farm Stewardship Association - Connecting Farmers and Communities

The Leading Voices in Food

Today we're speaking with Roland McReynolds, Executive Director of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association which is a member-based farmer-driven, non-profit organization based in Pittsboro, North Carolina, that helps farmers and consumers in both North and South Carolina grow and eat local organic food. Interview Summary   So why don't we begin with this. Can you help listeners understand what the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association does?   So our vision is a sustainable regional food system that is good for all consumers, good for farmers, good for farmworkers, and good for our ecosystems. So to achieve that vision, we work with farmers and with communities to advocate, educate, and build connections that support sustainable food systems in the Carolinas, centered on local foods and organic agriculture. We do that by working and consulting directly with farmers to help them implement organic practices in their operations and to help them expand their market opportunities. We work with food hubs and other sorts of food businesses to strengthen their operations so that they can become reliable market outlets for small farms and improve their competitiveness and ability to connect with values-driven buyers. We provide education and training both for farmers and the public. For instance, we host the largest organic farming and food system conference in the Southeast which this year is actually taking place in downtown Durham, November 6 through 8, 2022. We also run a farm incubator facility in Concord, North Carolina to help new organic farmers learn the trade and become successful in moving into organic farming as a career. We do consumer outreach, such as our Piedmont Farm Tour event here in the Piedmont Triangle area in North Carolina and K-12 agriculture education. We do a lot of advocacy educating state and federal policy makers on the needs and concerns of sustainable farmers. And, training people at the local level on how they can be effective advocates for healthy and just food systems.   Thank you for that description in this sort of remarkably broad portfolio you have. I can imagine how busy you folks are! But let me ask a question of kind of a national scope. Are there other organizations like this around the country, and is there a coalition of such groups?   Absolutely. Many states have sister organizations, like Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, serving their communities and their regions. One national umbrella group that we're a part of is the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, which acts as a lobbying voice for our sector in Washington DC. Their members span all the way across the country. So similar types of organizations that we work with are in states everywhere, like the Northeast Organic Farmers Association in New England, Community Alliance for Family Farms in California, and everywhere in between.   So let's go back in time and speak about how the association got started. So what were its origins, why did people think there was a need for this, and who are the members?   Essentially, it was a group of organic farmers and gardeners who got together back in 1979 seeking to practice organic farming, and to gain opportunities to learn about how to grow organically. And who wanted to see a food system that was re-centered on communities and relationships and shifted away from a commodity mindset of the cheapest food grown using practices that were focused on extraction from the natural world. These were farmers and gardeners who wanted to work with the natural world and work with their neighbors to create a different vision for a food system. This is the late 1970s, and this was during the "Get Big or Get Out" mindset in agriculture. In fact, existing agricultural institutions, universities, companies, were really actively hostile to organic. It was really to create that peer-to-peer learning opportunity for farmers across North and South Carolina that CFSA originally began. Over the years, the initial project of the organization actually came to be an organic certification agency. Back before there was the green organic seal that we have in the grocery stores today, the organic label was something that was locally defined. There wasn't a national program. So these farmers got together and decided and collectively created organic standards for helping them to manage their farms in a way that was beneficial to the environment that promoted healthy living soils. And over time, as we've expanded, and as the movement has expanded, those farmers recognized the need for policy advocacy and policy change to promote more sustainable food and farming systems, and to expand our services so that we can encourage and promote new farmers to get into organic agriculture and local food.   Now that you explained the origins of the organization, I was first going to say it was the beginnings of a trend for people and farmers to become more in touch with one another through things like farmer's markets and local produce programs and farm-to-school programs, things like that. But it wasn't a new trend. It was sort of the restoration of what existed before when people were more in touch with the farmers who grew their foods, and that connection between farmers and their communities is a really interesting one. And I'd love to hear your thoughts on the role that farmers can play in addressing economic and social justice issues in their communities.   Absolutely. A really great example of how the sustainable agriculture and sustainable farming community in the Carolinas is doing just that today is our FarmsSHARE Program which was developed as a COVID response by Carolina Farm Stewardship Association back in 2020. Initially, we saw with the pandemic and the public health controls that were being put in place, saw restaurants closing and especially those farm-to-table restaurants that were buying food from small local farms in our region and across the country. So those farmers all of the sudden lost a market, and they already had crops in the ground ready to sell, and the restaurants were laying off their workers. And, you know, this predominantly is people working in the kitchens and in the service industry who tend to more likely come from oppressed backgrounds, and they didn't have money because their jobs were getting cut off. So our FarmsSHARE program initially was created to provide CSA-style boxes from those small farms to those restaurant workers who were unemployed, or underemployed, as a result of the pandemic. Thanks to some very generous funding from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation of North Carolina, CFSA was able to buy that food from those small farms. They then worked with local food hubs to have it packed, and then the food hubs delivered the food to the restaurants that they used to sell to so that the workers could have this free, fresh, healthy food. As the pandemic has evolved and revealed to a wider population, the realities of food insecurity in our communities across North and South Carolina, FarmsSHARE evolved to address people throughout society who are in need of fresh, healthy food. So the way FarmsSHARE works right now is that we provide funding to food hubs for them to purchase food directly from small farms, package that up, again, into CSA-style, (Community Supported Agriculture) boxes. And then take that to food pantries in their own communities and senior centers in their own communities so that small farms are, through this program, feeding people in need in their backyards. This is a great example of what happens when we marshal many small farms to work together to address the injustices in the food system in their own communities, and bring healthy food made in harmony with nature to the people that deserve it.   Well, it's a great example of ingenuity. It's a great example of the resilience of a local food system and how people can come together in times of crisis, and the FarmsSHARE program you talked about is really interesting. Do you think that the lessons have been learned about how these food systems can be resilient so if something like this happens again, let's hope it doesn't, but if it does, that we'll be able to respond even more quickly and effectively?   I think we have an opportunity to help people learn that lesson. I mean, there's no doubt we have seen examples of fragility of the national and international food systems as a result of COVID, and we've seen examples of local food systems being resilient. As a professor and instructor, you probably appreciate that learning doesn't just happen from experiencing it once. We have to keep pushing and keep sharing those examples. This is really where the role of policy becomes vital in terms of ensuring that our society learns these lessons. The Farm Bill is coming up, which is the massive five-year legislation that Congress brings about every few years that guides food and agriculture policy in this country. That is a crucial opportunity for advocates of resiliency in our food system to make sure that these lessons actually get ensconced in policy. That policies that direct and incense the production and distribution of food in this country are built to be resilient instead of to be commodified.   Well, so let's talk about the Farm Bill. We'll turn our attention a little bit from the local picture to the national one. So this is an enormous and enormously complex piece of legislation and, as you said, it's coming up for renewal. So what do you think the legislation can do to help support local and regional food systems, and what do you think the policy reforms might be for the 2023 Farm Bill?   It really is a crucial opportunity, and one of the places that can start is in food procurement policies within USDA programs. So when it comes to food purchasing that the government does for relief to address food insecurity, the primary metric for making those purchases, is how cheap is the food? We need to change that mindset. We need to change policy to allow for these systems to prioritize community development and supporting farmers as well as supporting communities. So, for instance, there is a proposed bill that's out there in Congress right now, the Fresh Produce Procurement Reform Act, that is an example of policy that we'd like to see incorporated into the next Farm Bill that would lower the barriers for small farms to participate in these feeding programs. And would allow the agencies that run these programs to make decisions based, not just on getting the cheapest possible food and calories for people who need it, but to actually allow them to get fresh and healthy food and do it in a way that builds community instead of extracts from communities. That's a crucial area of reform. Incenting, agroecological and conservation practices, and promoting more research on organic practices is also something that is a critical opportunity in this upcoming farm bill. There is so much that farmers do that is shaped by the policies that the farm bill puts out. The Farm Bill, as it exists right now, eliminates most of the risk for very large farms to just grow corn and soybeans, and to not worry about the environments. Changing those incentive structures, making it possible, and in fact, desirable for farmers to work in harmony with nature as a primary focus and as a primary benefit of their operations has to be a part of the kind of reform that's needed.   Bio   Roland McReynolds has served since 2007 as the Executive Director of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA), a member-based, farmer-driven non-profit organization based in Pittsboro, NC that helps farmers and consumers in the North and South Carolina grow and eat local organic food.  He is an attorney, receiving BA and BS degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and his JD from the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Law.  Roland directs CFSA's programs and policy advocacy work at the state and federal level, and has served on the USDA's Fruit & Vegetable Industry Advisory Committee; the Policy Committee of the Organic Farmers Association; the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition's Organizational Council; and the Advisory Boards for the North Carolina A&T State University College of Agriculture and Environmental Science and the North Carolina State University Department of Crop and Soil Science; among other boards and committees.  Carolina Farm Stewardship Association is the oldest and largest organic farmers organization in the Southeast. CFSA hosts educational conferences and events on sustainable agriculture and local food systems; provides training and direct technical assistance to local organic farmers; runs a training farm for new organic growers in Concord, NC; coaches food councils on effective policy advocacy; and represents organic and local food systems stakeholders with state and federal legislators and agencies. In response to COVID, CFSA has been operating a program called FarmsSHARE, a CSA-style food box program that addresses food insecurity in the Carolinas by purchasing food from small farms at a fair price and distributing that food to people in need through a statewide network of community-based food hubs.

Under her leadership, the 49ers won 70 league titles in 14 sports.  Rose, who was once head coach of the 49ers' women's basketball and women's tennis teams, also launched seven new sports at UNC Charlotte, including the addition of a football team in 2013. This interview was conducted in the home she shares with her husband Ken, in the Lake Norman area. In Part 1 of our conversation, Rose looks back at how Title IX changed college sports; her early efforts to recruit for UNC Charlotte's women's basketball team; and tension with male coaches she had to navigate during her time as AD. On Part 2 of our conversation, Rose reflects on fundraising in the modern era of college sports; name, image and likeness endorsement deals for current athletes; and the hardest change in head coaches she ever had to make.

June 6, 1993 is a day that the small town of Windsor, North Carolina will never forget. With just under 2000 people in the 90s, Windsor was known for being a quiet and safe place with a very low crime rate. Unfortunately, that would change with the closing staff of the local Be-Lo Grocery Store that Sunday evening. A man hid somewhere inside the store, and sprang on the store manager after he locked the doors, demanding all the money be put into a plastic grocery bag. He would then escort all of the staff to the back of the store, tie them up, and the slaying would begin. Fortunately there were survivors that would go on to give police a description of the man, and a sketch would be distributed out to the public. 29 years later, and this case is still unsolved, and the gunman's identity remains a mystery.Will we ever know the man behind the murders that took place in this tiny town?If you have information about this case, call the WindsorPolice Department (252) 794-3111 and if you haveinformation about any unsolved case in NorthCarolina, please contact the North Carolina State Bureauof Investigation: (800) 334-3000.Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/755467142466635/Instagram: @ColacitycrimeEmail your listener stories and case suggestions: colacitycrime@gmail.comCheck out the website for our local non-profit: www.eccmpi.org Check out our collab with Crime Labs YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOZ1FRAOGm1VnzI8ow_XGcw/videosPlease subscribe, rate, and review our show on Apple Podcasts and Spotify!SourcesThe Kay Files on youtubewww.apnews.comwww.ncsbi.govscholar.lib.vt.edutrace evidence on Youtube
