In April 2015 last time anyone had seen 22 year old Alma Del Real, she was getting in to her friend's truck after a night out. Family and friends started to worry after she didn't show up to work for two days. From there it was a difficult time for investigator figuring out what happened to Alma. Luckily a second look at cell phone records would lead them to her. This is her story.

Small businesses need to establish their profile and build community good will. That's where Susan Liberatore, owner of Visions2Images, comes in. On this episode, we learn about the full-service marketing magic she uses to raise visibility through social media channels, email campaigns, website content and so much more. Established franchisors may have big umbrella branding, but independently owned businesses need that personal touch. Customization based on location and target audience is key. Susie has created signature systems and processes that generate and convert leads and bring to life the stories that make every franchise unique. In addition to working with franchisees, Susie is increasingly bringing her dynamic, creative approach to franchisors, who are invested in giving their teams the tools necessary to develop roots, an identity and local presence. In the end, it's all about really getting integrated into the neighborhood. Advises Susie: “Get involved in everything you can, as often as you can.” That can look like volunteer efforts, an affiliation with the Chamber of Commerce or sponsoring a local event of some type. Then get going with the social media posts that will amplify what your franchise is about and why your core mission and goals are compelling. You don't have to shine on every single platform. TikTok isn't for everyone! Just choose a couple that feel like a natural fit for your target market and let your own unique, authentic personality shine! Interested in some of Susie's favorite resources? This link will introduce you to a variety! And you can find out more about her branding and design offerings here. Click here to listen to, rate and review this or previous She Turned Entrepreneur episodes. Here are key takeaways from the conversation:· Going down the wrong path? It's all information – and more than okay to change lanes! · The best career choices are the ones that resonate with who we truly are.· Franchises may be under a corporate umbrella, but they are in actuality small local businesses – run by folks in our own neighborhoods!· Franchisees may have certain franchisor guidelines to follow, but that shouldn't discourage anyone from launching a bespoke local marketing campaign. It's not hard.· Want to raise your profile locally? Start finding and cultivating your tribe! Get involved with local civic, volunteer, athletic or other events. · The more people you meet the better – and don't forget always to link to new friends and colleagues via social media!· Just because you're working under a corporate umbrella doesn't mean you can't have your own voice.· Not all social media platforms are a fit! Don't be afraid to identify those that work with your brand and voice, then focus on being consistent and creative. Here's a quick look into the episode:· Photographer. Dancer. Susie knew early that she had a creative bent, which is probably why pursuing college and a teaching credential turned into a brief detour on the way to uncovering her passion for graphic design – and all its related marketing facets.· A stint in a corporate environment opened Susie's eyes to a gap that she could fill by creating a niche marketing agency that evolved into its focus on helping franchisees. · About the services that Visions2Images provides:o Brand creation.o Graphic design.o Website design.o Social media content.o Email campaigns.o Lead generation and conversion.· Even if franchisor approval is required for local marketing campaigns, the process doesn't have to be complicated or onerous. Not at all!· Advice for franchisees seeking to raise their profile:o Get involved with everything you can!o Participate in the Chamber of Commerce.o Join volunteer activities.o Update social media regularly to link with your new local contacts!· It's key to develop your personality and create posts that reflect your unique brand and community ties.· Susie is partnering increasingly with new and emerging franchisors, who are in a position to support their local franchisees as they get established.· Best practices for leveraging social media:o Be authentic.o Share core values, mission and other facets that distinguish your business.o Build out a story about the business's history, purpose and engagement.o You don't have to be on every social media platform! Find the ones that work best for you and double down! Focus on where your audience is located.· Balancing it all as a single mom, Susie's best advice is: o Take some deep breaths, meditate and otherwise give your mind a break.o Be intentional in prioritizing time with kids. o Outsource tasks where necessary to make it all work.· Susie's biggest motivators: Sales and growth, her son and providing for her contractors.· What Comes Next? Susie has no definite plans but she anticipates:o A continued trend towards partnering with more franchisors to help them create scalable marketing plans.o Building out a software product.o Staying open to opportunities! About Susie:After more than a decade in the creative field, Susie realized that corporations were missing out on creativity, so she developed signature systems and processes that work and convert for franchises. Franchise owners come to Visions2images for full-service marketing because they feel that they are missing out on local marketing opportunities. Her firm helps local franchise businesses get visible and generate leads in a variety of ways.

Episode 95 of the Check Your Six Podcast brought Jason Arthur into the GRP Studios to talk about business coaching. Jason grew up working in the family owned business and had first hand experience how a business operates, especially contracting. Jason has used his education, his experience to help create and develop a plan to help those businesses in the contracting industry to grow and be more profitable. Lots of conversation about things like the differences in similar construction trades even within the same state, the benefits of belonging to a local Chamber, if it is one that actually helps business and is not just a social club, some of the questions that he asks in working with business owners. Of course, his recommendations about belonging to the Chamber had nothing to do with his wife Rebekah being the Executine Vice President of the Seminole Chamber, that was a total coincidence!!

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds and Chris Fetters - broke down what they saw from a spirited Saturday practice at Husky Stadium, a Chamber of Commerce day where the coaches set the tone vocally and by the end the defense responded by making big plays. The guys on the defensive side included cornerback Jordan Perryman, DL Voi Tunuufi, LB Kris Moll and Daniel Heimuli, and EDGE players Bralen Trice, Zion Tupuola-Fetui, and Maurice Heims. In the first part of the pod, the guys break down the quarterback battle and where it stands. Is the job Michael Penix's to lose? Each quarterback - Penix, Dylan Morris, and Sam Huard - have had a day where they have been the one to shine. Day One it was Penix, followed by Huard, and then today it was Dylan Morris. The sophomore had a number of strong plays, including strikes to Ja'Lynn Polk, Devin Culp and Jack Westover that showed Morris has everything physically it takes to handle the job. But not one of the quarterbacks looked great during the final team period, the first one during fall camp with referees, chain gang, the whole thing. The defense shut them down every time. So is it a matter of Penix just maintaining a slender lead while all three continue to split reps? Or have Morris and Huard made gains on the former Indiana star? After a quick break, Grinolds and Fetters break down what they saw from the receivers, running backs, and tight ends. And then they provide their final thoughts on another day bathed in beautiful Pacific Northwest sunshine.

We first review the views expressed by Director Chopra and CFPB actions taken under his leadership that led the Chamber to launch its campaign. We then discuss the campaign's specific components, which consist of digital ads, Freedom of Information Act requests, and letters to Director Chopra. Our discussion includes an in-depth look at the basis for the Chamber's view that the CFPB has acted unlawfully in connection with changes to its UDAAP examination procedures, revisions to its rules for administrative proceedings, rule change to make public a decision establishing risk-based supervision of a company, and its interpretive rule on enforcement of federal consumer financial protection laws by state attorney generals. We also discuss the litigation challenging the constitutionality of the CFPB's funding. Alan Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel, hosts the conversation.

In this episode, Leigh Brown asks if you believe we are in a new market shift in real estate. You will be able to get some great insights and suggestions from Leigh as she is one of the most well-known speakers and thought leaders in the real estate industry. She has been selling real estate for several years and is the founder of One Community Real Estate® in Concord, NC. She has written three books, hosts two podcasts, and speaks all over the country. Leigh and Monica discuss the information REALTORS® can get from their MLS, their Chamber of Commerce, as well as the news, in order to inform their clients of the most up to date information. They also discuss the importance of networking, and using data to help make decisions. Leigh insists that REALTORS® need to keep current on changing conditions and educate their buyers and sellers with the most relevant information in order to navigate this market shift. [2:35] Monica welcomes Leigh Thomas Brown to The Center for Real Estate Development Podcast to talk about The Shift. Leigh compares the shift in real estate now with the shift in '07. [5:23] You have to figure out the new conditions in a shift. In March of 2020, a house that earlier would have sold in minutes was sold in seven days. Now it takes longer. The busiest REALTORS® see the changes in the marketplace first. Once you see them, you need to educate sellers and buyers or you will get behind the REALTORS® who will figure out the shift and leapfrog you. [7:16] In the big recession in 2007, REALTORS® didn't see the shift, didn't get educated quickly enough, and didn't adapt their expectations quickly enough. If you're not dialed in, you can hurt people. [8:11] Monica watches her local group's Facebook pages to stay current with local market conditions. It's also great to see local REALTORS® supporting newer REALTORS®with their experience. [10:43] Going to in-person events allows you to build relationships that will last through your career. Take classes to network with long-time mega-listing agents. There is no better resource for an early-career REALTOR® than a long-time agent who has been through a shift. They know how to conduct themselves when the phones stop ringing and everything seems to be coming apart. [12:46] Leigh tells how she acted in 2007 when her phone stopped ringing. Going to events would have helped her. An experienced agent would have reassured her that houses will still be bought and sold. [13:56] Leigh defines a shift as market conditions that cause people to behave differently in real estate. She notes several market conditions that have happened together. An agent can see a shift first by keeping track of Days on Market and price reductions on MLS. [17:04] Leigh lists some of the conditions defining the current shift, showing how complex the real estate market is. Being a real estate professional doesn't mean being a financial/business expert but you need to be aware of what's happening. It helps you talk to your clients who are also reading the news. Real estate is a financial tool as well as a living and home tool. [17:50] Monica refers to Episode 70, featuring Josh Cadillac, about the different areas that affect the real estate market and how to talk to clients about them. [19:43] Leigh tells how an agent in her office used statistics from MLS. MLS is much more than bedrooms, bathrooms, and prices. Put the best information possible into the MLS so every agent has the information for their clients to create a match. Check out the History button on every comp property. Print it out and attach it to the comp. Highlight all the times it has changed price. [23:55] Let people know markets are fluid in a shift. Also, every house is a combination of condition and price. Look at Feedback on the listing to see more about the house. [26:02] Call your MLS and ask the data person to do training at your brokerage. Learn how to use the Statistical Analysis Module (SAM) to look at the month-over-month of ZIP Codes or neighborhoods to come up with an accurate market value price. You will be the most educated REALTOR® at the table. Most listings occur at the end of the month. Things change every day. [30:01] The future is coming at us quickly. Dig into the data now. Take classes at your MLS or have them come to your brokerage. Learn it now. Only REALTORS® can dig in and analyze the last six weeks of data. The three-month data doesn't matter. Monica shares an anecdote about how they first saw this shift. Using the data is a skill all agents need to have right now. Train your client with the data. [32:30] Look at the NAR profile of home buyers and sellers. Clients want greater transparency. They wish we told the story better. When you're discovering all the data points, explain what they mean to your client. You will have a client that understands where you're coming from. [33:32] Train your clients to understand the data. They will receive it, own it, and make informed decisions about what to do. This is what Monica calls proactive real estate work If you will set up the systems and do the work proactively, then you won't have a problem later. Leigh reminds us that everything we do has to center on the best outcome for the client and it's up to the client to determine the best outcome. [34:39] One of the top complaints to any state Real Estate Commission is “My REALTOR® made me…” When clients understand the decision they are making, they will not feel pressured to make a bad decision. Give them as much information as possible in writing so they can decide. This also protects you from going against Commission guidelines. The client wants to trust you to act in their interest. [37:18] Leigh shares some best practices. Human behavior, when something doesn't feel right, is to pull back and stop. Agents don't have that luxury. Right now in our marketplace, there are people who need to sell. If we do not effectively tell them how to get out of the market, then we are hurting them. Learn the language of short sales and foreclosures. Leigh explains why. [39:55] Prospecting is not about you. Leigh's father taught her that if you take care of people the right way, money will find you. That's what REALTORS® must remember, going into a market change. Stop thinking about money; think about somebody else's best interest and the money will find you. Pick up the phone and call your contacts to say, “Hi! If you need something, I've got you.” You don't need a script. [44:01] If this time has afforded you a pause and you need to take a month if you have money in the bank and you're OK, then take a break. REALTORS® have worked seven days a week since COVID-19 started. You have to be a businessperson when it comes to your time. That includes putting up guardrails. If you're not rested, you're not capable. Find your balance between work and rest. [47:45] Real estate is not going to stop being wildly competitive. Every pre-licensing school is full. If you want to maintain or grow, you have to make specific business choices. [48:30] Leigh explains how to talk to buyers in a shift. Buyers have a built-in need to win. They've been getting beat up. You have to explain to the buyer that sellers and even banks are not accepting 20%-off offers. They have to get their equity. Banks also sell in bulk deals that exclude individual buyers. Don't wait for a repo.[51:54] Inflation is not over; the monthly payment is lower now than it will be later! Tell buyers to focus on the monthly. The buyer needs to get a pre-approval letter updated for every property they look at. Talk to your buyers about PITI-plus. The “plus” is a buffer for inflation for fuel and food. Talk to your buyers about how they can stay in that house. Your job is to help people think logically about an emotional transaction. [53:41] You should know how long people stay in their houses, on average, in your ZIP Code. Ask your local Chamber of Commerce. Be the person who has the data for your clients. With the right data, people can buy houses. [54:36] If your client insists on making offers at 30% off, refer them to a REALTOR® who is willing to do that; which is why you show up at networking events, to build a stable of amazing REALTORS® who have different business models and mindsets so that, at the end of the day, the client is best served by the REALTOR® who fits what they're looking for. [55:04] Leigh's final word is, Do the work; pay attention to the information, take the classes, train your clients, train your sellers, and keep moving. Without REALTORS®, home ownership dies; the American Dream dies; REALTORS® are the ones doing the work in the field, every day, giving some neighbor the hope that they can buy their first house. [55:48] Monica thanks Leigh Brown for joining the Center for REALTOR® Development podcast! [55:56] Leigh shares three takeaways from this episode: Get education in person, to network. Build your knowledge of statistics and how to use MLS data. Call and care about your clients![56:23] The Center for REALTOR® Development has migrated all of its educational tools to one website: Learning.REALTOR.

Tweetables: “We have been through some changes in all of these years and so, when they say The Shift, I'm like, ‘Well, all right, let's see where this new road's going. You know, not a big deal, maybe I'm even glad!' But a lot of our listeners, as crazy as their lives have been, they're not necessarily excited about this!” — Monica “That was what I felt like on March 13th of 2020. Of course, the COVID-19 lockdown started on Friday the freaking 13th. The phones stopped ringing for a minute and then they started ringing and it was, ‘What do we do?!'” — Leigh “I got you, baby! I know what to do when the market goes stupid and sideways because I've been through this and frankly I would rather not think about how many years it's been since the shift last time, in '07!” — Leigh “The managing of expectations is the hardest thing for REALTORS® to adapt to because we see it first. The busiest REALTORS® see it first.” — Leigh “It's one of the under-sung beauties of REALTOR® world is that there is an actual desire to work together; not collusion,… but from a knowledge, information, expertise, and competence standpoint.” — Leigh “If you're an early-career REALTOR®, there's no better resource than somebody who has been through this. … They know how to conduct themselves. They know how to maintain a sense of calm and confidence when everything … looks like it's just coming apart at the seams.” — Leigh “There's a new problem. I'm going to define it and I'm going to help my clients get where they want to go. 100%!” — Monica “[A shift is] anything in the external market that causes people to behave differently in real estate.” — Leigh “When you call your MLS, that data person will come to your brokerage and do a training session and show you inside scoops and they love it.” — Leigh “Because markets are fluid, all you have is your data. So if you take in that month-over-month view of the ZIP Code, you're going to be the most educated REALTOR®at the table.” — Leigh “When everything goes smoothly, it's not because it just went smoothly, it's because you prepared well and everybody joined in the journey together.” — Monica “Everything we do has to center on the best outcome for the client.” — Leigh “Be curious. Ask better questions. What's their need?” — Monica “Care about your people. Genuinely care about your clients, your friends, and the business will come.” — Leigh “Until interest rates are higher than the rate of inflation, we're not at the end of the pain for buyers. You've got to tell your buyers, right now is still a good time to buy! It's not going to get easier! It's cheaper, monthly-payment-wise than it will be later! … Focus on the monthly.” — Leigh “Go back to that [average stay in houses] data and MLS may not have it but your Chamber of Commerce will. … So you know that number, you know the interest rate, you've got your lender on speed-dial, and you're focused on PITI-plus, people can buy houses.” — Leigh Guest Links: leighbrown.com | email@example.com | 704.507.5500 Facebook: leighbrownspeaker https://www.facebook.com/LeighBrownSpeaker/ YouTube: leighbrownspeaker https://www.youtube.com/leighbrownspeaker Instagram: leighthomasbrown https://www.instagram.com/leighthomasbrown/ LinkedIn: leighthomasbrown https://www.linkedin.com/in/leighthomasbrown/ On the Clubhouse app: @leighbrown Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeighBrown Podcast: Crazy Sh*t In Real Estate https://www.crazyshitinrealestate.com https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/crazy-sh-t-in-real-estate/id1153262163?mt=2 Great Recession Days on Market MLS ZIP Code Episode 70 with Josh Cadillac Josh Cadillac's website Chamber of Commerce Additional Links: Micro courses found at Learning.REALTOR Crdpodcast.com Learning.REALTOR for NAR Online Education Training4RE.com — List of Classroom Courses from NAR and its affiliates firstname.lastname@example.org Host Information: Monica Neubauer Speaker/Podcaster/REALTOR® Monica@MonicaNeubauer.com MonicaNeubauer.com FranklinTNBlog.com Monica's Facebook Page Facebook.com/Monica.Neubauer Instagram Instagram.com/MonicaNeubauerSpeaks Additional Bio: Leigh Thomas Brown Certified Professional Speaker™ (CSP®) international keynote speaker who happens to be hilarious in an almost-inappropriate-but-still-family-friendly way.

Ennis Chamber's CEO says there's still work to be done to move the town away from its traditionally 'dormitory' status. Margaret O' Brien believes there needs to be further continued emphasis on attracting jobs to the county town, rather than around it.
Moms are overwhelmed, exhausted and burnt out. There is a major lacking in systems to support new, working and stay-at-home moms… so basically, that's every mother. It is important for us to fight for change, but the weight of that constant battle and stream of seemingly never-ending bad news can feel too heavy to carry at times. Joining me to discuss the advocacy work The Chamber of Mothers is doing, ways you can get involved, and how to find joy in an often turbulent world is the founder of Working Momtras, Raena Boston. If you've been feeling helpless or hopeless in light of recent events, I hope this episode makes you feel empowered and renewed in its collective call to action and message of togetherness.

Tori returns to her beloved alma mater, Hampton University, reflects and has a very special homecoming with the singular President Dr. William R. Harvey. Known for more than 40 years of legendary leadership, he transformed the university from a small Black college to a world-class leader within higher education.

“THE AXEMAN OF NEW ORLEANS” and More True and Macabre Stories! #WeirdDarknessFind Weird Darkness on the free Spreaker app: https://www.spreaker.com/show/weirddarkness, or look for it wherever you listen to podcasts: https://linktr.ee/weirddarkness IN THIS EPISODE: The axe murders of New Orleans took place over a hundred years ago, but “The Jazzman Story” remains one of the greatest mysteries and unsolved murder cases within the annals of American crime. (The Axeman's Jazz) *** The investigation of an apparent suicide in 1953 led to an unbelievable theory… not only had the victim used LSD years earlier, but it was quite possible it was forced upon him by the Central Intelligence Agency. (The CIA and LSD) *** You don't often hear of people being struck and killed by lightning – at least not nowadays. But pick up a paper from the early 1900s and you'd think people were doing it as a hobby. (Death By Electrical Storm) *** January 30th, 1835 was the date of the first attempt at assassinating a sitting U.S. President – Andrew Jackson. That fact itself doesn't warrant placement in Weird Darkness, seeing as the attempt failed – but the story leading up to the attempt, and the attempt itself, certainly earn their place in this episode. (The President and the Madman) *** I'll end the episode in the Chamber of Comments, but before that, my last story will the most disturbing one of the episode. Most ghosts are seemingly passive or even benevolent, appearing to scare people only by accident, never by intent. But then there are the stories of violent and angry ghosts – spirits that not only bring terror, but also bloodshed and even death by their own ghostly hands. We'll look at some famous cases of violent hauntings throughout history.
