What is an achievement is can you commercialize it.” (11:04) (David) “I have actually tried to look into myself and understand why I like plants. And, I think the answer is that I see in plants the same version of a computer algorithm. Plants are really fascinating, beautiful algorithms interacting with physical properties in nature…I think the meta-answer is that I like plants just because they're like algorithms and it gives me a sense of understanding and appreciation of things around me. I see a divine design in plants, and the same with computers. Computers are manmade and plants are Godmade.” (12:10) (David) “On our website we say, ‘Forty percent cost reduction,' and I mean it. We have been running a farm and doing experiments. When I started doing our work, we set up a lab and we really are trying to be as realistic as possible, measuring every single thing like, ‘How many minutes am I spending on my seedling? How many minutes am I spending on harvesting? How many times do I have to go down to the lab to check on stuff?'” (20:26) (David) “I do question the norms. I mean, c'mon, take traditional farming. Tilling the ground is the conventional wisdom, but it's not necessarily true. If you go to India, literally at the end of the season the whole swath of land is just going to be tilled. And they think it gives air and airflow in the soil, but it's not true.” (32:16) (David) “Our AI can also take into account the factors I mentioned: CO2, temperature, humidity, PH, more factors. It can easily co-relate those things. It can predict harvest time, using normal cameras.” (40:57) (David) “The name HexaFarms comes from hexagon, which is a mathematically super beautiful structure. So, if you look at honey bees and honeycombs, the structure is a hexagon. It has a bunch of other qualities, but one of them...

As a result, Amerifund has handled the rapid rate increases quite well He got started with Homepie in 2019 as he began to think about the inefecciencies of the real estate world when sellers list and sell their homes and don't get much value from the listing agent. Pretty quickly, he realized that no one was providing the services and technology that he knew needed to exist. He shares where he sees Homepie going as the go to place where homeowners can store everything about their home, find services and even find lower rates on insurance one day.

Today's episode is brought to you by Klaviyo and I'm chatting with Becca Millstein, the Founder of Fishwife. Fishwife is a new female-founded and led food company aiming to make ethically-sourced, premium, and delicious tinned seafood a staple in every cupboard. They work with small boat fisherfolks, sustainable aquaculture farms, and microcanneries to bring the vibrance of European conservas culture to the North American table. I started following Becca's journey with Fishwife when it first launched last year and have been drooling over it ever since as a big tinned fish eater myself - so I'm really excited to share this episode with you. We're chatting about creating a distinguishable brand, what it costs and how to find the right folks, what it actually means to create a sustainable tinned fish company, how to start small and build within your means and building a brand that's truly authentic and unique. The best piece of advice that the founders were given, that led them to move so quickly, is that there is an ethos of the move fast and break things advice. Asking consumers, asking customers what they think about your products at every turn. Thats the piece of advice, 100 percent always do that. If youre not talking to your consumers, why? This is the most useful resources that you have available. Get customer feedback as soon as you can, by launching the brand. You've got to think of those hacks to get your brand and product in front of people to see if they would want to buy you. You just have to talk to so many people to do this. And you should.

The differentiator between good investors and great investors is the ability to spot opportunity in places others may not be looking. This applies in traditional real estate and in the PropTech space. There are no easy answers, but if you're willing to work hard and think outside the box, you can reach extraordinary levels of success. In this episode, Paul Wakim joins us to talk about how he entered into real estate investing and ultimately co-founded TwnSqr, a PropTech company. He discusses his entrepreneurial journey from starting a successful real estate photography company to developing a tech start-up that is disrupting the $226bn real estate sales and brokerage industry. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation: Don't be afraid to act on opportunities when they present themselves. Adopt a problem-solving mentality. Expand your real estate network. The goal should be obtaining freedom of choice. Episode Highlights: [06:30] Why People Sell Real estate would not exist if people did not want to sell their homes. So Paul learned how to code and built an algorithm to interpret the reasons people want to sell and how to find motivated sellers. [09:15] Defining “Wholetailing” Retail real estate is the traditional act of buying and selling real estate. Wholesale real estate is selling the contract to purchase before you purchase it. Wholetailing involves finding motivated sellers, purchasing the property, and then selling it to a buyer for a profit immediately after purchasing it. [17:05] Exploring the Benefits of TwnSqr TwnSqr is a marketplace for real estate investors and sellers to buy and sell properties themselves. They also have tools to support investors. One of the defining tools of TwnSqr is that real estate investors can bring a property to the platform as well as their buyers list. Users are also able to share assets with each other. That allows investors to make connections and collaborate. TwnSqr is aiming to own the off-market inventory space in PropTech. [26:09] What Drives Paul He simply wants to have freedom of choice - to do exactly what he wants to do whenever he wants to do it. And the only way to get there and achieve that pure freedom is through hard work. He is now working remotely and can travel freely. Notable Quotes: [8:01] “There is no such thing as real estate if somebody doesn't want to sell their house.” [21:23] “The guys that transact in high volume that keep their buyers continuously happy, they're the ones that are getting the most value from the platform.” [27:29] “I want to be able to do exactly what I want to do whenever I want to do it. And the only thing that I've known to get me there is just brutally hard, hard work.” Resources Mentioned: BiggerPockets TwnSqr Paul Wakim: LinkedIn Reach out to Jeremy on LinkedIn and Instagram Connect with Paul on LinkedIn.
Unexplained infertility occurs in about 15-20% percent of couples who seek fertility treatment. It is a hard diagnosis for many patients to swallow. It can be so disheartening to feel like there is no answer for you. On today's episode, Cody visits with Sara Jensen, CEO and co-founder of Hugh and Grace a hormone-safe self-care products company. Sara and her husband experienced a 14 year struggle with unexplained infertility. they share that they learned a shocking fact: Everyday, we are unknowingly exposed to harmful chemicals that are effecting our hormone health and therefore fertility. Frustrated by the lack of transparency and the amount of confusion there is around “clean” products, they went to work and created high-performing, simple solutions that people can trust. Sara also shares her incredible story of hope. Two incredible family members volunteered to be surrogates for she and her husband. They now have their very own miracles: Hugh and Grace. Inspired by those who helped them, they set out to create a solution. Realizing that we all need more than just products to create a solution, we're also need a community to help share knowledge so people everywhere can make healthier life choices.

Service of process and other documents is an essential function of law practice – one most lawyers deal with on a regular basis. But for Colorado lawyer Eric Voogt, he saw service of process as a broken system, one in which it could be difficult for an attorney to line up a process server or know the status of the service, and one that he believed was long overdue for a technological upgrade. So Voogt decided to do something about it. In 2016, he founded Proof, an on-demand process serving platform that provides legal professionals with instant access to experienced process servers and real-time tracking from a phone or laptop. Earlier this year, Proof raised $7 million in a Series A funding round, and it says its platform is now used by more than 3,500 law firms and government agencies. In early October, LawNext host Bob Ambrogi interviewed Voogt live at the Clio Cloud Conference in Nashville, where it had just been announced that Proof would be one of three third-party products to be the first to be fully embedded within the Clio law practice management platform. They discuss why Voogt founded the company and how it is disrupting service of process. Thank You To Our Sponsors This episode of LawNext is generously made possible by our sponsors.

This could prevent millions of trees being cut each year. After many years of hardship and continuous technical improvements, the first large scale factory is opening its doors in 2023 in the PhilippinesMichiel loves a challenge , if it is in the ring, sailing to Brazil or solving pressing environmental problems. He learned early on that avoiding pain and discomfort at all costs doesn't get you anywhere and if you think it's worth it; just start and get it done. The diminishing forest where one of the challenges he considered that made perfectly sense to find a solution to. First alone and later with a brilliant team, he developed an alternative for wooden one-way export pallets by compressing coconut husk waste -that is often just burned - into strong, circular and affordable CocoPallets.About CocoPalletCocoPallet, a transport pallet pressed from only the coconut husk which is normally wasted. Circular and 100% bio-degradable. At least 25% cheaper than the millions of wooden one-way export pallets from South-East Asia we intend to replace. Preventing millions of trees and billions of coconut husks to be wasted. CocoPallet offers coconut farmers additional income, lower cost and CO2 in the supply chain and at the end the CocoPallet can be milled and used as high quality soil improver for agricultural purposes.

Head of Sales Mark Schlosser with Landis joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to talk about the market's impact on the company, its partnership with agents and brokers, as well as the questionable reputation of the traditional rent-to-own process. Schlosser joins host Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate segment. A father of two beautiful babies, Schlosser loves to spend time with his children and always puts his family first. After working six years in cyber security for various industries and companies, Schlosser began his job as Head of Sales at Landis. He leads a team that operates markets with brokerages and agents to ensure partners are set up for success while working with Landis. Landis is a homeownership company that transitions renters into homeowners. The company provides programs to clients, ranging from one to two years, that offer coaching and mortgage preparation after purchasing a home from Landis. The design of these programs prepare clients for the responsibility of homeownership. Landis partners with agents who receive full MLS commission to help convert their clients into homeowners through its program. The homeownership company empowers its agents and partners with technology, such as a complete CRM and a Landis U system full of courses and curriculum to make agents and partners as autonomous as possible. Landis also has feet on the ground to incorporate human touch. Schlosser said, “For our agents and partners, it's not just about the commission aspect. It's about so much more. It's about creating a great experience.” Preferring the phrase “homeownership company” over “rent-to-own,” Landis is a modern-day twist on the traditional concept. The main difference of the company process being the true alignment of creating homeownership. The company's criteria, financial coaching and taking clients within its program seriously are just a few reasons why 80% of its clients transition to homeownership. Schlosser said, “We have investors such as NAR, Sequoia, Will Smith and Jay-Z.” With his cyber security background, Schlosser believes that the technology aspect within the real estate industry has much room for improvement. While human touch will always be necessary for the industry, there are several ways to accelerate areas in enhancing standards, guidelines and technologies. Schlosser said, “The one thing I absolutely know about the real estate industry is it can and should be disrupted.” The uncertainty surrounding today's market has lined Landis and its clients up for short- and long-term success. With thoughts of “I don't know” floating within the market, the program available through Landis provides its clients with predictability. Landis also provides clients with all-cash offers, making offers more attractive to sellers. Recently, Landis announced its Series B funding of $40 million from investors such as GV, NAR, Jay-Z's Roc Nation fund Arrive, Sequoia and more! The company will use the additional funding to grow its team, improve its program and add new markets. Providing support and coaching to clients, $2 million of the fund will be exclusively for the advancement of the company's program to help its clients become homeowners.

Hello everyone! Educators are some of the hardest working people on this earth. Few people outside of education understand what it truly takes to move kids, support families, and build schools to be powerful tools for all who enter them. At times the demands of this job can take their toll, however, and when they do, consequences can be dire. To discuss what it takes to build powerful educational environments and the cost that can be present with such work is the brilliant Dr. Nadia Lopez. Dr. Nadia Lopez is an award-winning global educational thought leader, who became a viral sensation after the popular blog Humans of New York featured her as one of the most influential people of this life. Disrupting the school to prison pipeline, Dr. Lopez founded Mott Hall Bridges Academy, a STEAM-focused middle school in Brownsville, Brooklyn, New York, in 2010, and served as the principal for ten years. She was named Linkedin's 2019 Top 10 Voices in Education and received the Black Girls Rock award–alongside Michelle Obama in 2015. In 2020, Dr. Lopez ended her tenure as Mott Hall Bridges Academy's principal as an act of self-preservation after developing a stress-related illness that threatened her life. The experience inspired her to develop a coaching program for women of color in educational leadership designed to build their capacity, with a focus on sustainability. In part two we discuss: What happened to Mott Hall Bridges when Dr. Lopez came back The importance of supporting teachers and building trust Where education is headed and how we can support a better tomorrow …and so much more! This episode is sponsored by Heinemann—the leading publisher of professional books and resources for educators—and their new book, The First Five: A Love Letter to TeachersBy Patrick Harris II. We all have stories. We all have experiences to share. A memoir with a call-to-action, The First Five affirms the humanity of all teachers. Patrick inspires you to dream big about what you want for yourself, our students, our schools, and our educational system. In The First Five, Patrick brings to light the realities of teaching, especially in the first five years. He immerses you in his world with personal stories that lead to lessons, questions, and exercises to help you reflect on your own journey. Each chapter includes interviews with a diverse group of educators. Creating change in our education system is a process. It will happen from the ground up and the inside out. If we want to make a long-lasting impact we need to know more than just what to do; we need to start sharing our stories, not just our strategies. The work we do together throughout this book and beyond will leave you feeling hopeful, empowered, and challenged. No matter where you start, know that this work is ongoing. Give yourself grace. We are in this together, for the long haul. Here's to the next five years.

Former Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime joins the conversation on “Making Waves at C-Level”. Award-winning innovator and disrupter, Reggie Fils-Aimé has been revered by business leaders and gaming fans alike for helping to bring some of Nintendo's greatest successes– the Nintendo DS, the Wii, the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and the Nintendo Switch – to the global marketplace. In his bestselling book, DISRUPTING THE GAME: From the Bronx to the Top of Nintendo, Fils-Aimé shares his story of grit and determination for the first time—from his humble beginnings in the Bronx as the son of Haitian immigrants, to the top of Nintendo as one of the most powerful names in the gaming industry—and the first American and African American president and chief operating officer for the company. Immortalized for opening Nintendo's 2004 E3 presentation with, “My name is Reggie, I'm about kicking ass. I'm about taking names, and we're about making games,” Fils-Aimé is a veteran at transforming companies, revitalizing brands, and reshaping industries. Here he outlines the leadership lessons he learned over the course of his career from his time working with iconic brands at P&G, like PepsiCo/Pizza Hut, Guinness Import Company and television entertainment with VH1 to his tenure at Nintendo. He helps readers leverage disruptive thinking to pinpoint the life choices that will make them truly happy, conquer negative perceptions from those who underestimate or outright dismiss them, and master the grit, perseverance, and resilience it takes to dominate in the business world. ABOUT Reggie Fils-Aime Reggie Fils-Aimé is an award-winning innovator and disrupter who has helped bring the Nintendo DS, the Wii, the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U and the Nintendo Switch to the global marketplace. He joined Nintendo of America Inc. in December 2003 as Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. In May 2006, he was promoted to President and Chief Operating Officer. He was inducted into the International Videogame Hall of Fame in October 2019 and received the annual Legend Award from the New York Videogame Critics Circle in January 2020. Prior to joining Nintendo, Fils-Aimé was Senior Vice President of Marketing at VH1. During his tenure at VH1, he engineered the channel's redirection to young viewers that resulted in an overall 30 percent ratings growth, and he created and executed the marketing plans for The Concert for New York City, which raised more than $35 million for disaster relief in the wake of the Sept 11, 2001 attacks. Fils-Aimé graduated with distinction from Cornell's Dyson Undergraduate Business School in 1983 which launched a 35+ year career as an operating executive spanning the consumer-packaged goods, restaurant, beverage, and media/entertainment industries. Since retiring, he has focused his energy on developing the next generation of business leaders. In August 2019, he was named the inaugural Cornell University's Dyson Leader in Residence for the 2019-2020 academic year. He also founded Brentwood Growth Partners to help emerging companies scale and enable leaders to create world-class cultures.
