In this episode we sit down with Alan Raines and Annette Jenkins from One Man's Treasure in Rockwall, Texas, just east of Dallas. One Man's Treasure has one focus, to provide clothing assistance and referral services for formerly incarcerated men to gain employment, successfully reintegrate into their communities, and reunite with their families, while demonstrating God's love and the care and concern of the community for each of the men during this time of transition. The application process is simple. Through collaborations with prison chaplains, parole officials, prison ministries, other aftercare non-profit organizations, and area transition homes, men released from prison in need of clothing are identified within Dallas, Rockwall, Collin, Kaufman, Henderson, Van Zandt, and parts of Denton and Tarrant Counties. The client can fill out an application while he is in prison and/or call the toll-free number when he is released. Each application is screened to determine the client's eligibility for services under One Man's Treasure's guidelines as to the type of unit where he was incarcerated, county he will be residing in, and whether he has been helped before. When the call is received at the clothes closet, a full set of clothes is collected based on sizing and color choices. All clothing is washable, because indigent men do not have funds available to dry clean clothing. The clothing is then delivered to the client's home or transitional home by a male volunteer (called a “shepherd"), along with One Man's Treasure's Resource Guide. The strength of the program comes from a personal visit by a male volunteer, who takes time to visit with the client and his family, if he has any, encouraging him, and guiding him to other resources. In this one act of agape, the ministry seeks to provide each client with the spiritual support he needs during this critical transition period along with meeting his physical need of clothing. If you are an adult male who has been released from a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison unit within the past 60 days and returned to the Dallas and Fort Worth areas- Welcome Back! One Man's Treasure would like to provide you with a FRESH-START WARDROBE at NO CHARGE TO YOU! We do our best to accommodate all of the requests that we receive but at times we are limited due to current inventory and sizes. Vist onemanstr.org to fill out the app or feel free to call us directly to complete over the phone 1-888-433-9826. If you are in Texas prisons and paroling to the DFW area, your chaplain may have an application in their office.

Key Takeaways: Many investors are making the mistake of sticking to outdated real estate strategies instead of adapting to the current market. Airbnb rentals are being banned in certain cities, making them less profitable. Interest rates and property taxes are increasing, making fix and flips and long-term rentals less viable options. First-time homebuyers may need to live in discomfort for a short period of time in order to afford a home in the current market. The DFW area offers opportunities for real estate investors due to its diverse economy and business-friendly environment.

This week on the HappyCast, we are joined by some local Texas trail running enthusiasts who decided to venture outside of their comfort zone and take on some mountains - the Never Summer 100k, to be exact, which is one of the toughest mountain races around. Regina Massingill and Kathleen Hanley from Houston, and Kevin Halliburton from DFW join us to discuss their strategies for taking on this behemoth northern Colorado race. Combined, these three individuals have an average elevation of that of the top of a city parking garage to train with. So how did they prepare for this race? These three have some pretty epic stories from the race, as well as a literal last minute victory when all hoped seemed lost for one of these individuals. Stick around to hear the emotional recap of a beautiful DFL finish. What would you do when you had zero minutes to spare at an aid station? Congratulations to these three for an amazing race, and thank you to Gnar Runners for an unforgettable experience. And finally, congratulations to Kathleen's husband, Jason Hanley of Wildsense Goods, on finishing Bigfoot 200!Be sure to subscribe to the podcast wherever you listen, and we always appreciate you leaving a good rate and review.

Hosts and PTSI Resilience Trainers John Salerno and Samantha Horwitz talk with John McGlothlin, U.S. Army Airborne Captain, and author of How to Deal With Damn Near Anything - The Paratrooper's Guide to Life on A Badge of Honor Podcast.There is a hidden side to the military—behind the stories of leadership and valor is a distinct culture that promotes personal growth and development. In How to Deal with Damn Near Anything: The Paratrooper's Guide to Life, John McGlothlin shows how this culture can benefit anyone.Using a mix of research and first-hand experience, McGlothlin distills this culture into five “inner traits” essential to facing any challenge. Each trait is examined in detail: what they mean, how they fit together, how to build them, and why being a paratrooper offers a unique perspective on doing so.No place fuses personal and professional like the “airborne.” The result is a series of lessons no classroom or regular workplace can teach. You don't have to enlist to learn them–you just have to embrace the right mix of practical thinking, honesty, and a desire to improve. How to Deal with Damn Near Anything will guide you through that process and put you on the right path for stability and success.

We started our Travel Brat Texas trip by flying Delta into Dallas, picking up a car from my fave new rental car company, Thrifty, and scooting over to the most beautiful little historic town. The historic town of McKinney, Texas, was about 45 minutes from the airport and a must-visit hidden gem on the outskirts of Dallas! We stayed in the most charming hotel- The Grand Hotel of McKinney. The Grand Hotel was built in 1885 by the Heard Brothers. When built, the Grand consisted of an original 14 rooms, a Grand Ballroom, and Rick's Chophouse. It was only 15,000 square feet! Later, the Tower was added, expanding the hotel to 45 rooms.From the Willy Nelson book in our room to the Grand Ballroom and rustic red brick walls, the Grand Hotel was charming from head to toe. My favorite part was the tasteful paintings on every floor and in every room, and the little library at the end of the hall right by our room!Check out the Grand Hotel's Experience Page for the 411 on McKinney.The town of McKinney was quaint and charming. For morning coffee, there are two great spots: Layered and Filtered. Layered had the best hot chocolate and a killer lavender late. The most remarkable addition to the restaurant was the little robot cat tray that brought out our food. Filtered has live music along with Cadillac Pizza, Harvest, Lone Star Wine, The Pub, The Celt, and Rick's Lounge. These spots, as well as Room One Eleven, and Barron Creek are also great for a cold crisp beer.If you are staying in McKinney, you must take the day to mozy around and visit all the adorable little shops and stores. Some town favorites are Ambrosia, Little Red Hen, Birds & Words, Antique Company, Homeology, Fair & Square, Sharla's, and Cotton Hearts.Other must-try restaurants in McKinney are The Yard, Local Yocal, Patina Green, and Urban Grill. For Historical cities, check out Chestnut Square Heritage Village, Collin County Farm Museum, Collin County History Museum, Heard Natural Science Museum, and the Heard-Craig Center for the Arts. For a great show, check out the McKinney Performing Arts Center.McKinney has a plethora of art and antiques. Explore the art at Kim Guthrie Antique Company, MillHouse, and The Last Art Gallery.Be sure to bring an umbrella so that you can stay dry! Texas weather is totally unpredictable! McKinney is a small town, so I recommend visiting for one to three days maximum.
Successful Subject To We have Badass, Maria Acosta back on the show to discuss one of her Subject To deals. A successful Subject To deal has many moving parts and Maria breaks it down from start to finish! She goes into detail on what would make the perfect situation for a Subject To, how to protect yourself from a possible due on sale clause, and the use of a Land Trust. If you know someone that is facing foreclosure, Subject To may be the best solution for you AND the seller! Maria Acosta is a full time Real Estate Investor in the DFW area and she fix and flips houses all over north texas. In addition to flipping houses , she has built a rental portfolio of over 20 units across the states of TX, OH and MI. Maria was born in the Dominican Republic and came to the United States with her family when she was just 4 years old. She lived in Cleveland, OH for 1 year before her family decided to move to NY. Maria came from very humble beginnings and as a kid, her parents both worked at McDonalds to put food on the table, her father would sell clothes out of the trunk of his car and she and her younger brother would go and clean houses and doctor offices with their mom during nights and weekends. Growing up, Maria was always told that she needed to go to school, get good grades, so she could get a good job. Maria graduated High School and she went to Bryant University in RI where she studied Accounting and Finance and later got her masters degree in Financial Planning from Bentley University in MA. After school, she got a job and was hired by a financial services company in July of 2010 and she started taking inbound calls talking to Financial advisors about mutual funds. After a few years of inbound calls, she transitioned to doing outbound calls and had her own territory that she covered. She had made it! She had finished school and got that good job that she was always told to get but she wanted more. After watching numerous shows and seasons of various flipping shows on HGTV, Maria became infatuated with Real Estate and wanted to learn how she could fix and flip houses. She had one of her favorite show hosts that was going to be putting on a free seminar in the DFW area on flipping houses so she attended the seminar. The free seminar turned into a second session and then a 3 rd session where she ended up investing over $40,000 into her Real Estate education. She completed the program in October of 2014 and after charging all of these fees on credit cards, she pushed herself to get her first flip and bought her first house in February of 2015 where she went on to sell it and made over $15,000. Since 2015, she has completed over 40 Real Estate transactions including fix and flips, rentals and wholesales – all part time around her full time job. Maria went on to quit her full time job on November 24 th of 2021 and has been doing Real Estate full time ever since. Maria and her team are dedicated to helping homeowners that are in distress and helping to bring them solutions. They work with homeowners in various situations such as those wanting to sell due to dealing with problem tenants, unwanted inherited properties, properties where homeowners can no longer afford to pay the taxes, keep up with the maintenance, those looking to downsize, those that are relocating and need to sell quickly and one of the biggest areas they help homeowners facing foreclosure. They will assist them in explaining the options their lenders don't want to take the time to explain in how they can save their homes from auction or if they are looking to sell before their auction date, they are prepared to move quickly and help with that route as well. Maria loves talking Real Estate and loves helping others. Since Maria graduated college, she's been donating every year to her High School's Academy of Finance program where funds are raised annually to give the graduating seniors scholarships for college. In the program, students learn the basics of managing their money and more advanced accounting and finance strategies. This is where Maria gained her love for numbers and finance. She is eternally grateful for everything this program has taught her and she wishes nothing more than for all students to learn the basics of managing their money so less people would be put in difficult financial situations because they didn't know how to manage their money. In her spare time, Maria loves playing basketball and shes played rugby since 06'. She is a very competitive person and always gives her heart to everything she does. Maria's parents are still living in New York and her 2 younger brothers both live in Orlando, FL. https://www.themariaacosta.com/rea-program To learn more about Jen Josey, visit www.TheRealJenJosey.com To join REIGN, visit www.REIGNmastermind.com To join HomeSchooled by Tarek, visit https://go.homeschooled.co/schedule-strategy-session?el=jenjosey
