What If Losing Weight And Feeling Great Was As Easy As Making One Decision? VeVette Turner Turned Her Life Around at 46

An Interview with Melissa Llarena

Happy Mother's Day, or as I like to call it, Happy Warriors Day! If you are an entrepreneur, or even if you're in a corporation, your health is more valuable and more important and should be a higher top priority than your wealth on any given day. One day, VeVette Turner, and her now husband, were at a beautiful resort but they ended up just watching other people do fun things they couldn't do because they were both overweight. This week's podcast episode is specifically for moms because the gift of health is the best Mother's Day gift I could ever give you.  If you take back control of your health today, irrespective of how lethargic you might feel, regardless of the size of the dress or pants you're wearing right now. None of that matters. All it takes is a decision.  VeVette takes us through those early days when she and her husband decided to change their lifestyle and how she made a decision to live a plant-based lifestyle. She managed to use her imagination and plugged a blender into her car so she can make her smoothies on the go, being a busy sales professional who's always in her car driving from point A to point B. Today, VeVette tells us what keeps her going today as a 55-year-old.  By the way, I have opened up three spots in the VIP Coaching Days for moms who are launching or growing their businesses and who want to take advantage of the power of content marketing, which is an integral business growth strategy to build awareness as the authority of your field. If you're interested in being a VIP for a day and working on your content marketing strategy, email me at melissa@melissallarena.com. I'm also sharing nine tips to help you spend more time with your kids. These are things that have worked for me over the last decade, having raised my three kids in keeping my energy up, and at the same time, helping me become productive. If you're a woman in business, and if motherhood and entrepreneurship are important to you, grab that list by reaching out to me on Instagram @melissallarena. The insights and the lifestyle changes that VeVette Turner shares are applicable to anyone serious about their health. Enjoy the conversation and share it with a mom and tell her Happy Mother's Day!  VeVette Turner's Biography VeVette Turner was a 46-year-old divorce overweight mom of two who found herself depressed and dealing with multiple health issues, like chronic hives, migraines, and irritability. She then decided she couldn't live the same way anymore and had to take the first steps needed to switch to a plant-based diet. Every podcast she listened to helped her with each new step toward becoming a new healthy person. She began to set goals, prioritize sleep, and grow her own sprouts. Now at the age of 55, she has done three half marathons, training for a full marathon, and has completed numerous cycling events. Ladies, isn't that what we all want? To be and feel our best selves! Highlights Decision: Living a healthy lifestyle can be done. You can start over again. You can rewrite the chapters of your life. The first step is making that decision.  Fitness goal: Setting different fitness goals gives you the drive to keep working toward it.  Soreness: Having muscle pain from going to the gym isn't a valid reason to quit exercising.  Recovery: To help your muscles recover faster, consider doing Epsom salt baths and foam rolling. Most importantly, you have to be able to listen to your body because there's a difference between muscle soreness and an injury. Accountability: It's easier to stay on track with your diet when you have someone in your life who can serve as your accountability partner.   Nutrition: Love your body and feed it good nutrients so it can flourish and do what it's supposed to do.  Creativity: Find healthy recipes that you like and figure out ways to introduce more plant-based foods into your kids' lives. Meal prep: Think about having your pantry items delivered through various services. Then you can start doing your meal preparation. Make things easier by prepping your ingredients ahead of time (ex. chopping the onions, making a stock. Lifestyle: Once you get into this routine and you realize how good you feel, it just becomes part of your life when you make that decision to create a lifestyle where you prioritize health, nutrition, sleep, and moving your body.  Support: Sometimes, you may lose friends for choosing a healthy lifestyle since you may no longer go out with them as you used to before. And that's okay. Be open to friend groups that align with your values. Result: When VeVette finally cut out dairy, that was when she really started to feel a difference. All her body discomforts and issues disappeared and she developed mental clarity. Slowly: Just slowly move into a plant-based lifestyle otherwise, it could shock your body and your lifestyle. Take it a little bit at a time and feel good every step of the way. Just know that you're going to get to a point where you're seeing a difference in your scale and in how you feel. Education: What's wrong with our whole system of this standard American diet is education. Educating yourself on all of these things. And as you slowly move towards it, and you start to feel better, it just comes. Perspective: Look at what you're going to look like in five years and where you want to be. Think about the future YOU! Happiness: You can be overweight and be happy. But it's proven to cause health issues so it's not the healthiest to carry around all that weight. Start now and reward yourself when you get through these little milestones. Change: Start incorporating more movement or healthier meals on a day-to-day and realistic basis.  Choices: What do you have to live for? Reimagine what's possible if you make healthier life choices.

It's a pleasure looking forward to this conversation.     Seth Cysewski: Absolutely. So I'm very fascinated about what you're doing. But, why don't we start just with the basics. Maybe if you could tell me more about John the person and and how and then maybe eventually how you ended up working around clean energy challenges.     John Belizaire: I like to say I'm not an energy guy I'm actually a software guy I yeah studied computer science undergrad started my career at Intel really helping bring software to the personal computer and for the next. Twenty plus years I was ah following my passion really creating new companies I've been an entrepreneur. I hate to say serial entrepreneur because it's so cliche. But, it's true I started my career in the e-commerce space and primarily focus on selling technology to large enterprises I used to carry around lego blocks to big financial services companies and and and explain to them the future of software will be built like this you know and they're like well how much are those lego blocks these these are five bucks but the ones I'm gonna sell you. They're like a million dollars and so enterprise software has really been my focus and and most recently I was in the insurance software space did some work helping insurance the insurance industry sort of transition into the digital realm using data and analytics to make better decisions and then about four years ago I had just finished that experience and I was taking a bit of a break doing some writing I pen a blog where I sort of write down all my learnings and a close friend of mine and mentor who had been an investor in a number of my companies suggested that I look at this business that he was working on. And I said what business would you be doing that I would be focused on because you always do industrial companies. I'm a software guy and he explained well you've got to look at this one. It's the intersection between renewable energy and blockchain. And the only thing I heard in that sentence was blockchain I heard of that and that might be interesting and that started a 4 year journey until today where I am the CEO of Soluna Computing, a company focused on unlocking the potential of renewable energy. And by using computing as a catalyst so that's a quick tour. I'm from New York originally father of 2 two girls, extra extra data there.     Seth Cysewski: It's awesome. I'm a father of one daughter and daughters the are amazing. They the best for sure. So you got a you got a good computing background and so they're bringing you in to Soluna.     John Belizaire: Exactly.       Seth Cysewski: Tell me more about Soluna Computing and I mean obviously the intersection of blockchain and renewable energy sounds very fascinating. So tell me about the problem. Maybe that Soluna is setting out to solve and and a little bit more about that.     John Belizaire: Exactly, you know I get that a lot. You know we don't really have lots of cocktail parties these days given when we're recording this this podcast, but the the questions I get when people sort of asking me what are you doing now is like "What are you up to?" and "What does the Soluna do?" "What's the problem you solve?" and what I explained to them is that we solve a little unknown problem which happens to be a huge problem for renewable energy and the renewable energy transition. And that is that most renewable power plants, up to 30% of their power production never actually make it to the grid. Let me say that again over $700 to $ 750 billion dollars has been spent in the last two years alone clean tech clean energy infrastructure and a host of technology to bring more green electrons to the grid. But when you zoom in on the power plants that are actually producing those electrons big wind farms big solar farms spread around the country and around the world, up to about 30% of their power never makes it to the grid and the reason is because the grid was designed based on this concept that energy the energy that's produced must be synchronized with the energy that's used this concept of sort of direct synchronization. So it that grid infrastructure which is which is very brittle and inflexible. At this point really was focused on ah power plants that can be dispatched by the grid operator and controlled and and fired on literally you know fired on right? And as you begin to replace those old legacy fuels, coal plants etc, with green power plants, well the grid is no longer in charge of dispatching those power plants mother nature sets that schedule if the wind is blowing really heavily in in Oklahoma, there'll be lots of energy produced by the big wind farms out in the field there and there may not be any users of that because people might be asleep at night in Oklahoma and they're not. Many large pipes or transmission lines to take that power perhaps to down south where people might be ready at a party and use that energy. So that's the problem. There is lots of wasted energy which reduces the amount of renewable energy that you can actually bring on grid. That's the problem.     How do we solve it the way we solve it is we bring ah another interesting user of energy that happens to be quite flexible right? What their grid needs is a user of power that can ramp up and ramp down if they can control that part of the equation. Then they can bring more power to the grid. So what we're bringing is these specially built onsite scalable data centers that absorb that wasted energy. We actually will use that energy instead of spilling it and we convert it to global, clean low cost computing and what type of computing are we focused on? Well we're not going to run your email. We're not going to run your e-commerce applications, your mission-critical applications. What we run are what we call batchable applications, anything that can be paused and restarted, put to sleep, that sort of thing because power might not be available. The types of applications that do that or any or anything that are highly compute intensive, okay, and have this ability to sort of pause themselves and examples of that are bitcoin mining. And kind of crypto mining application, AI, and machine Learning. So I you know write my Peloton in the morning as lots of data collected on me and then the next day it's a better. It's a better ride that's happening in the background in a model or or AI system that we never see but it's become a big part of just about every application out there. Scientific computing, for example, is a host of different applications that represent a a sizable slice of computing these days that is perfect for this type of data center and that's what we put inside of our facilities. And then we build these facilities around these green, these green power plants all around the world and that adds retroactively to flexibility that the grid needs.     Seth Cysewski: Thank you, I have some follow up so that's really great. So just so I understand this, when I think about traditional legacy power generation, and we were just in Tennessee and they have peaker plants there using natural gas, right? They're just designed to to fire up when they're needed and so traditionally what you're saying is the energy energy generation was the one that was flexible but with renewables it's not as flexible. So in turn you're making the usage flexible and we're not quite there with.     John Belizaire: Exactly.     Seth Cysewski: Batteries which would be another another solution with this wasted or stranded energy which we could store and so essentially we're just repurposing computing. That's already going to be done and just moving it in to that 30% that that normally they wouldn't hit the grid typically.     John Belizaire: Exactly, you got it Seth, basically computing is a capability something that you can do anywhere in the world. It is flexible in the sense that you can run a a computing process just about anywhere. Not every computing application is resilient enough to be put in an environment where it's not running in a 24 by 7 facility, but there are now a host of applications that are perfect for that environment. And what we're doing is basically taking the insatiable demand for energy created by computing because we all walk around with computers in our in our pockets, we talk to magic assistants at home that use computing somewhere in the cloud, and it just so happens that with a little lateral thinking, that opportunity or that technology can be applied here where a solution is needed today. It needs to be scalable and it needs to solve this wasted energy problem in the near term not in the long term. You're right Seth, batteries are also a solution. They're perfect. You can store the energy deploy it but there are some problems there because batteries are companies too. They have to at some point pull the power down when the power is cheap and that's usually when all that congestion and mismatches and then they need to put the power back on the grid at some point. The power is high so they work on an arbitrage model. Most people don't know that and so if you're in a situation where there's lots of renewables in a particular area, well the power is not going to be high very often and so it becomes very hard for the battery to actually be profitable and they're not scalable from a cost perspective yet. So we're not saying we're a replacement for batteries and transmission. What we're saying is, flexible computing is another somewhat counterintuitive solution to the problem.     Seth Cysewski: Now that's very fascinating. So then who would your, it seems like to me that maybe you would have customers on both ends right? So you're either, you're probably working either and you can correct me, either with with the owners of these power generations or maybe even the people that sign these PPAs. I don't know if you work with them at all on the one end and then on the on the other end, you're you're working with computing companies or people that can then utilize your computing you you call it, batchable? Maybe you can tell me more about your customers on both ends and and how that works from their perspective.     John Belizaire: That's right. Yeah sure on the power side. We work with what we call power partners they're exactly as you described, they're independent power producers,  they're large utilities that have big, you know, assets that are renewable around the country, and big funds, infrastructure funds who deploy capital to build out projects. They may not be the development company. So sometimes they buy a site from a developer and then they build it out. Finance it and operate it. Those are the are the folks that are our power counter parties if you will on the on the other side. We focus on large enterprises enterprises that have a big data science arm or a growing one. And, they are really concerned about 2 things. Number 1: the rising cost of the computing as a percentage of their total revenue. Those Amazon bills start to add up after a while and the second is since what they're doing, this computing is so intense, is very compute intense. It's big. You know the data corps they're dealing with are quite large constantly processing them. The data scientists are now within their communities talking about whether you know are we destroying the world I mean pretty much every application has a data element to it. And are we essentially subsidizing the continuation of legacy fuels because we live inside of these not so flexible data centers that have to be on 24 7, 5 to 9. etc. But what if I told you I can take that slice of compute load, or that slice of computing processes? We like to call them jobs and maybe they represent single digits 2% to 3% of your total computing within an enterprise and move them over to these data centers that are catalyzers for renewable energy, that could be pretty compelling for a company that helps them with their ESG goals. They can point to their applications being directly powered by green electrons and, you know from a data scientist perspective, they just want to have lower cost access to computing that is good for the planet.     Seth Cysewski: That makes sense. This reminds me, so this I probably is a good segue to talk about, you mentioned Blockchain and I think when most people think of, or maybe I don't know about most people, think a lot of people that hear blockchain think of bitcoin and cryptocurrency. You know some people are really into it and others are, you know, a little further out and so and they're just hearing about it, but I'm wondering, I was listening to your your recent financial call, and whatnot, so you guys are scaling pretty quickly which is really awesome, and I believe that bitcoin mining or cryptocurrency mining probably makes up a majority ah of your business right now.      John Belizaire: Yes.     Seth Cysewski: We're talking about like the intersection of how these come together and you're mentioning some of these companies are are a little concerned about their data usage. I think you know bitcoin so I'm just going to point out critics point out I guess that bitcoin can be really detrimental towards climate progress. Not that anyone anyone's going to stop it necessarily, but a recent Columbia paper noted that but bitcoin's currently using over 20 Million metric tons of CO2 each year, and China alone could be up to 130 Million metric tons by itself in 2024. So these are like super big numbers and I'm wondering about. It makes sense what you're doing and and why that would be a really good for that. So that's awesome. But maybe you could talk to me more about like from your perspective what is bitcoin or cryptocurrencies role in in a clean energy future.     John Belizaire: Fantastic! So there are 2 narratives Seth around bitcoin 1 narrative is that it's an incredibly novel technology that could reshape the future of financial services but it's got this terrible side effect. And you've alluded to a number of examples of that. The other narrative is that it is an incredible catalyzer for the future of financial services that are not tied to authoritarian governments and gives people financial freedom money and wealth preservation is now democratized on a global basis and that's made possible by an incredible technology. And, the energy use is a feature, it is not a bug. It's a feature and so I want to talk about the second narrative because it's very easy to get access to information about the first narrative. It's sexy. It sells papers and online clicks and so forth and unfortunately it's a snapshot of the truth. The truth is that the young bitcoin industry was not very focused on its effect on climate and. Probably wasn't really aware of the eventual effect on climate and the reason was because it was a very small network really driven by a vision of really you know, bringing back the control of financial services and money to the people. And it was also driven by cracking some pretty challenging problems to create a decentralized form of money and you've got to solve some real real challenges, right? So as a result you started to see essentially two bitcoins. In fact, there are really 2 bitcoins. One is Bitcoin the capital B the other is bitcoin the lowercase b. Bitcoin capital B is the protocol that powers the global Bitcoin network which is now approaching over close to $1 Trillion in total value. It is used by hundreds of millions of people around the world and the underlying capabilities for providing security is what the crypto mining aspect or bitcoin mining aspect of the platform is, the platform is designed or the protocol, is designed to use mining as a mechanism to protect the blockchain. Transactions that occur on it and thereby protecting the assets that people are trusting the platform to deliver and so mining has as the value of the of the currency. The the lower case b has has increased mining has become a larger and larger enterprise if you will around the platform, and as a result it's matured significantly over the last decade. Number one, you're starting to see a re-shift. There's a movement underway, literally, of companies leaving China. Mostly driven by China kicking them out. They're, you know, domiciling themselves, repatriating themselves around the world in all sorts of different places. They're primarily first driven by where can I find cheap power. But now there's a sentiment around a really want to find the cheapest green power there is. Over $100 Million approaching over $1 Billion invested in very mature companies run by professionals. You know, some of the early versions of the company were run by young folks who didn't have a sort of, you know, business acumen, and they were not backed by institutional capital that asked really tough questions about what you're doing, and so as a result you now have companies much like ourselves out there that are taking a completely different approach to reshaping the next chapter in the Bitcoin landscape. And so the positive narrative is that the bitcoin mining is now seeing its role as a dual purpose one is protecting the Bitcoin network and the second is finding a way to become more sustainable. And catalyzed to renewable energy ah transform transition and bitcoin small b, by the way, is gone from, you know, being really so you know this speculative asset, actually playing a very important role in the global economy in asset allocations for some of the largest asset management companies in the world. It's now made its way into pension pension plans people are getting paid in it. It's maturing. It's a young thirteen year old technology.     And it reminds me of another technology. That's a little older. It started when I started my entrepreneurship career, it had this sort of similar concept of you know capital letter lowercase letter, and it was focused on bringing the world's information to 1 digital place, and it eventually evolved to e-commerce, and then it evolved to connecting people, and it evolved to pretty much everything, and by now you you can guess who the character is I'm describing, and that's the internet. It has the same characteristics as Bitcoin. It evolved over a 20 year period and most of that development happened in the the last decade or so, and we now take for granted the role. The internet has played, and so I often say you should never underestimate the potential technology and the fact that it can really advance way beyond your current expectations, and it can happen very quickly and Bitcoin is gaining momentum and we're proud to be helping to make that happen.     Seth Cysewski: That's fascinating. I thought I was there, I used to dial into my local BBS and I remember Prodigy. I remember when we got my first Encarta CD, it changed all my school projects. Yeah, it's interesting and I hear what you're saying about as it becomes, I almost say more legitimate, but maybe more mature, as a process and as a currency that the stakeholders are more mature too and the things that they're looking for and their external pressures are are different.     John Belizaire: Exactly. That's exactly right. You know the public companies that are doing this for example, their shareholders put tremendous pressure on them, like we need to know where your powers are sources. And you now need to be carbon zero or negative right? And so there's a lot of pressure.     And as more of the industry moves to countries that have rule of law that have access to these renewable resources and this pressure to put to to leverage those over others that industry you know has no choice but to mature and sort of accept those those things. So it's interesting to see the transition over to in the short four years that I've been involved.     Seth Cysewski: Yeah, no, that that makes a lot of sense. We were just out in in rural America, and we have some direct solar investments for for our company, and I remember talking to some of the economic development officials out there and they were saying that it's not even a competitive advantage. It's a requirement now. So their communities need to have green power. Otherwise you're not going to recruit in any sort of job creating companies, because that's a requirement from them, and so I see that parallel as just being really a requirement moving forward, and that's everywhere. So it's a very exciting I think trajectory that that we're starting to to see. Maybe tell me a little bit more. This is all really fascinating, can you tell me more about maybe your company and the challenges you guys face right now like as you as you guys are scaling?     John Belizaire: Indeed.     Seth Cysewski: And, what are you guys running into and and what are you doing about it.     John Belizaire: Yeah, good. Good, great question. Once a year Seth, I write what I like to call sort of the kickoff letter, and it's usually right after the holidays we we we have this shutdown period where we we really encourage everyone to sort of take a real break. You know, stay off of email and whatnot and I try to be an example, but usually I fail, but recently, I guess I would say but before when there was travel, I'd force myself to go someplace where there's only but just rocks and sand around and you know there's nothing to connect to. But after that, after that break, I feel that it's really important to give the team sort of 1 focusing message around what's going to be important in this coming year as we execute and and build out the next phase of our business and in my note this year, the the overarching word if you will and it's usually 1 word that I sort of sort zoom around, and is called scale. How do you scale the business that we're in, and I used a question that Peter Thiel asks a lot too. Set up what I wanted to ask the team to do and the question is if let's say you have a 10 year vision you know everybody sort of sees a picture of themselves a few years out if you have a 10 year vision to do something. Why can't you do it in six months another way, to ask the question is what's the 1 thing you can do in the next six months to get you closer or to ensure that you'll reach that 10 year vision? Everything we're doing right now as an organization going from 50 Megawatts, you know, about 3 data centers around the country, to building an entire fleet of hundreds to if not Gigawatts of facilities around the world is going to be focused on finding new and clever ways to scale our operations the way we operate our facilities the way we manage inventory. We have thousands of pieces of equipment in our data centers. The way we recruit employees, the way we communicate as a very large distributed organization, the way we raise capital at scale, you know, going from tens of millions dollars of financing to hundreds of millions of dollars of of financing, this is a very capital intensive business to build data centers and operate them., these are all things that we need to figure out. How do you create a iconic brand around renewable energy and catalyzing renewables using the blockchain and crypto without ah without that brand being associated with hubris right? We have to be a humble participant in the new community that we're part of to help to drive the future of this industry. These are the questions that we pose ourselves here at Soluna, that I asked the team to think about, and on a regular basis. We generate ideas on how to tackle those gnarly problems around scale. And that's what we've been working on. Yeah, it's hard to tell how long it's been in '22, but I feel like a year has passed already in the in the short two weeks that we've been back to the office but, there's a lot to do Seth, and you know, our big challenges are are really around scaling the operation in a way that is repeatable, we learn from quickly, and continue to grow.     Seth Cysewski: Is the grid and the way it's structured one of them for you?     John Belizaire: Yeah, so the grid is a is a very rigid thing in many ways right? So it's technically architected for a legacy approach to grid a lot of the laws that govern grid operations in just about every region around the country are also legacy and they actually create barriers to innovation and they also ah slow down. Very much the rate with which you can deploy new and interesting approaches to actually bring the very thing that the grid needs which is the flexibility and so, there is a lot of challenge related to that we ah spent a lot of our time as a company. Educating, and this isn't new to me, when you're when you're a new technologist. You're constantly a missionary. You've got to train folks and and explain to them why they should do something different that they that they've always done. You know all that. All that smells is risk for them and when you're in the business of providing reliable always on power to the country, one of the greatest countries in the world, risk is not something that's in your vocabulary and so, what we've done in addition to the technology that we use for our data centers, the way we, you know, manage the facilities the way we deal with jobs and everything we've actually built a ah set of principles structures both financial and technical in nature. To mitigate a lot of the risk associated with placing our. Next to the power plants, tying it into the grid, we spend a lot of time, you know, talking to the grid operators and, you know, government officials associated with the regions that we're in to make sure we're not doing anything that threatens the service that they are mandated to deliver, but only enhancing it right? That's improving it and making it more flexible and actually allowing them to to deliver I like to say that you know what's our mission, our mission is to help deliver clean green low-cost power locally, and deliver clean, sustainable computing on a global basis and so that does require lots of education especially when you have words like blockchain and crypto and anything, any of your marketing materials. Forget about it. You better be ready to do a lot of education.      Seth Cysewski: I hear you, so I guess maybe, if you could, you have a very unique perspective and a lot of experience here, especially with what you're doing looking into your crystal ball. You're talking about a tenure like exercise. But maybe you could tell me what you think for you, the the next five and 10 years looks like, either for the grid or you could even add in or talk about maybe the future of of how computing is either executed or powered?     John Belizaire: Yeah, you know I think that there are 2 perspectives we have on the future over here. Number one is that the transition to green power is inevitable at this point. We're basically all sitting in a fast-moving Tesla heading toward the renewable energy transition, and by the way, we're probably nobody's probably driving the car. We're just hanging out there talking about how, you know, can you believe we used to power the world by burning old pieces of, you know, households, and now it's completely powered by electrons that are are powered by Mother Nature essentially because that is the case you're going to see massive amounts of change. You know who are in the back of that who are in the back of that that vehicle? They're not energy experts, they're like, you know, dumb guys like me who don't know anything about energy but have brought sort of experience from other places to really help fight the the the good climate fight. So their technologists PHDs, data scientists, software engineers, all sorts of people who usually don't have anything to do with power power will become about computing. And that's because you're going to see more ah science and technology inserted into the grid to improve its flexibility. Its ability to sort of evolve almost future-proofing, if you will, the grid and I see that in a short period of time. All utilities are now sort of waking up. You're also seeing a change of the guard, Seth, at these places. Even legacy people need to be moved out, I hate to say, and new open minded people around technology and sort of finding ways to to address things. For example, I met an amazing young entrepreneur who built this drone system powered by AI that flies over the power lines to evaluate maintenance and things that can be done to reduce forest fires and potential issues that could significantly impact grid stability. But never thought about that right? You're just used to guys drive around trucks. They're on a maintenance and they'll eventually get to no. But if you had these systems that are constantly checking, you could you could prevent a lot of things happening so we're seeing that you know that that fast moving Tesla sort of evolving on the on the energy side. On the compute side I think you're going to see a step change in what we describe as data centers today. Data centers are these you know Ferraris, fast-moving cars, super resilient. And we're building a truck. We're building a facility that is specifically designed to be in the rugged environments far away from ah metro places super flexible and and and and resilient and agile in these environments. And it's going to be powering what will be and I believe today is probably 1 of the fastest growing segments in computing today and that's all of these batchable and AI-based environments. I read something that described it as somewhere around 20% is where it is today but it's growing at 40 to 50%. I don't think I know a single software company that doesn't have some sort of data science behind their business. Actually it sort of you got to ask the question if they don't right? Compass Real Estate, one of the most amazing real estate companies I was reading about a fact, the founder found it has a Masterclass, you know, the Masterclass app, and a very good friend friend of mine heads up data science for him ,and he explained to me how that whole thing works. And it's more of a data science company than it is a real estate company. To be honest, and it's just fascinating to me, that that is really touching just about everything in the world at this point. And so in 10 years, that's going to be an immutable truth and it will spawn these different types of platforms where you can run those things in a way that is good for the planet. So that's our perspective on it and I really hope you know that the young folks, anybody who was young, you know, technologist or if you're in school listening to this, I think there's a lot of opportunity to jump into this industry. You know I talk a lot about the need for some sort of climate Peace Corps or something like that, you know, where before you go work for Google or go work for Google for a year but then come back and just like jump in and see if you can bring a fresh look at, the energy systems of the world and see if you can help to make that. Part of helping us survive all of these climate issues.     Seth Cysewski: I love how youth is just so open. They just they haven't been taught. They haven't learned what what's what they can and cannot do yet. Yeah, the sky's the limit.     John Belizaire: Exactly. Nobody's pounded into them. They know we don't do it like that, we do not do that. So don't even think about it. You know and learn behavior is what I like to call it. You know they they haven't exposed a lot of learned behavior yet they're just they're just raw and that's what you need when you're looking at hard problems like this.     Seth Cysewski: Well I think that leads me into to my last question then, and maybe it's along these lines maybe not. What advice would you have for you know any business leaders or people that want to make a difference entering maybe emerging markets, either in the sustainability space, you know, in the future space.     John Belizaire: Yeah. So the way I got into the Soluna business, I didn't share at at the beginning, but that project my friend asked me to go run it. It was actually in in Southern Morocco and it was in a place otherwise known as the kite surfing capital of the world. Amazing wind, really high speed. I don't really keep my hair very long. So it's hard to to show you film of how fast but when you go to the airport. There are really 2 types of...     Seth Cysewski: You look aerodynamic.     John Belizaire: There are only 2 types of people at the airport. Renewable energy people and kite surfers. I'm talking about Olympic-class kite surfers in Dahkla, Morocco, and what was fascinating to me spending time trying to develop a wind farm there, and develop, you know, and get the idea for shifting our our whole focus during the pandemic to this computing company, was that there is so much energy poverty on that continent, really caused by 2 important things. Number 1, you don't have an economy to support the energy so you have this sort of chicken and egg problem like why are you building power, there's not enough use for the power. And 2, bringing in financial constructs. You know, attracting capital to build out resources is very challenging. And, by the way, it's not like there aren't resources to be developed. There's and there's an incredible abundance of natural resources hydro wind solar that can be turned into. Ah, economic growth. You know by building power plants and the solution we've developed helps to drive that. That's really what got me super passionate about that. This could be a new way to build renewable energy and so I think the message for folks out there is spend some time over there. If you really want to understand what it's like to not experience what you enjoy here, which is you know, clean, eventually green power that is consistent and persistent that helps to drive our our economy, go to a place where a young child doesn't have access to to medical services because there's no power to provide it and see if there's there's a way for you to help there. I would encourage everyone to do that to get a real sense of the opportunities for changing the world in a major way by solving problems at home that can be brought elsewhere. And that's the message I would leave with folks out there.     Seth Cysewski: Thank you for sharing that. That's great. Well John it has been really lovely. I just want to tell you I don't think I was aware of the solution, and not really so much. The problem outside of batteries before kind of looking into what what you were doing and I just think it's it's a very clever and a needed solution. So I'm glad you're doing it and and I and I appreciate you coming on and and and sharing.   John Belizaire: Thank you. Thanks Seth I really enjoyed the time great questions and thank you so much for the opportunity. Support Coolperx®'s podcast by subscribing and reviewing!

That to me is huge for commercial real estate development and development in general." - Tyler Cauble "Mistakes you'll see newbie investors make, they'll ask too much for rent, or they'll ask too little for rent, and you just don't properly negotiate your financing terms. I mean, those commercial loan documents are extensive; you can negotiate them. I highly recommend you get an attorney involved to help you with that." - Tyler Cauble "One of the first things that we did helped us grow as fast as we did for the last three, almost four years; we've almost exclusively focused on East Nashville. So not just one market, we have focused on a submarket within that market, that allowed us to have more knowledge than anybody else." - Tyler Cauble "Finding your blue ocean, niching down into your little neighborhood or whatever you want to do; that was super beneficial for us." - Tyler Cauble Connect with Tyler Cauble: Website: Commercial Real Estate in Nashville | The Cauble Group Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/commercial_in_nashville/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tylercauble/ Connect with Dave Dubeau: Podcast: http://www.propertyprofitspodcast.com/ Website: https://davedubeau.com/home Investor Attraction Workshop: http://www.investorattractionworkshop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thedavedubeau LinkedIn: http://linkedin.com/in/davedubeau

Peter has a background in Business Administration and has worked for several banks and IT companies. 60% of Swiss companies aren't sure their share register is correct — with daura, not only can you avoid this issue, but you can in fact manage the whole company lifecycle, from founding, to fundraising (which necessitates printing shares to sell them to people), to shareholder assemblies (which are significantly facilitated by having shares printed as tokens) to an exit scenario (where shares will of course be sold). Listeners should note, however, that daura is not like a stock exchange: a stock exchange is a secondary market, where shares that have already been printed may be traded; daura, on the other hand, focuses on printing the shares and distributing them to shareholders, who may then decide to sell these in a secondary market or transfer them to another person. daura's business model consists of charging issuing companies a yearly fee for their share register, an additional fee for running a capital increase, and an additional fee for doing a general assembly.

“Just be nice” - an often used sentiment that can, well, often lack depth.   Statements like ‘just be nice” or “don't be a dick” lack any understanding of why someone might or might not be those things.   It's the same as saying “eat less if you want to lose weight” - sure, thanks for that, I had somehow missed that food is a major contributing factor to body weight.   It has no attempt to understand the behaviour behind it.   Everyone knows being nice is a good thing. Everyone knows not to be a dick, not to lie cheat and steal, everyone knows not to fight people for a few potentially hurtful words.   Simple statements risk being shallow and hallow.   This is why when I had on today's guest I had to put this to him; Josh Reid Jones - Founder of the Just Be Nice Project. In this Episode: Josh is a wonderfully insightful, determined, huge-hearted and nice man. Not to be confused with a ‘Nice Guy' (a differentiation we explore in this episode).   In this chat, we dive into the origins of the Just Be Nice idea as well as the organisation that, as Josh states it, is the only one in the world breaking down the real ins and outs of making an impact and helping organisations (and people) work out how to make the most impact in the community.   This goes beyond the tired and cliched model of charity - something Josh breaks down in a deeply accurate and wonderfully worded call out of charity style advertising and money-raising model.   We explore Josh's take on making an impact in the world, starting with one person.   And we look at the pyramid of being nice, starting with ‘being nice' then to ‘being really good at something' to ‘doing good'.   This was a fascinating chat in which I really enjoyed diving into the next piece with Josh. I trust you take something valuable away from this episode. Please share it with a man you think could benefit from it also.   And if you can prioritise 2 minutes, I ask you to do ME a solid and like and rate and review this podcast on iTunes - it supports us in getting this podcast in front of more everyday men who can benefit from it but don't yet have this information.   Josh's bio: Josh Reid Jones is a social impact professional and social entrepreneur.  He is the founder of the Just Be Nice project with the aim of changing the way that people help people; until they are housed, employed, and have positive mental health outcomes. Josh has been relentless in his pursuit of creating an environment that ensures people in need get the help that they need, when they need it, for as long as they need it, regardless of how they come to need help. Josh works daily to engage businesses, schools, organisations and communities in the process of creating extraordinary positive change in the world, through making ordinary positive change. Educating and engaging people while managing the resources necessary to ensure that everyone has assistance with housing, employment, and positive mental health outcomes. A non-executive director of one of Tasmania's largest social service providers Colony 47, a member of the board of directors for the Port Phillip EcoCentre, an RUOK Day ambassador and recipient of a range of awards and scholarships for outstanding contributions to social impact and non-profit leadership, Josh is committed to improving and expanding social impact and equality of opportunity both domestically and abroad.   Where to find Josh: Website: https://www.jbnproject.com/ Instagram: https://instagram.com/joshreidjones YouTube: https://youtube.com/joshreidjones Other Ways To Consume this podcast: iTunes Spotify YouTube   Get Involved: Subscribe to podcast on Apple Follow on Spotify Sign up for Mike's LEGENDAILY Emails to help you with a daily shot of loving straight talk direct to your pocket Want to explore DEEP coaching support and guidance with Mike?

Tom welcomes back John Adams to the show. John is an economist and internationally recognized thought leader. He is the Chief Economist for As Good As Gold Australia. John discusses in-depth his legal interactions with Kitco over the past ten months and how he was threatened under Australian libel laws. Kitco claimed to have severe damages from John's tweets which questioned the nature of various companies' unallocated fractional reserve metal offerings. Kitco claimed damages but failed to disclose their nature. Numerous other individuals worldwide have also questioned Kitco's offerings. Kitco's legal firm failed to respond to the majority of John's legal questions. John eventually received a surprising response from Kitco legal firm Dentons which claimed that threats of violence had been made against employee(s) of said firm. The threats came from someone "acting in response to the incendiary rhetoric and vilification of Kitco and Dentons in your client's social media postings." They further stated they had referred the matter to Law enforcement, specifically the NSW Police. John contacted the NSW Police with an offer to answer any questions but law enforcement never followed up. At this point, the matter is assumed to be closed as many months have now passed. Lastly, John discusses the risks of having metals in unallocated pool accounts and why these programs don't provide legal ownership.

From The Founder: Since I was in my early twenties, me and my husband have been running our own business. From helping him run his Automotive Repair company, to owning my own clothing boutique to now doing what I am truly passionate about. Skincare! I have always had a hard time working for other people. I wanted control on how to treat customers in the best way. I didn't want someone telling me I could only take so long for an appointment. Skincare is very complicated. Having a license as an esthetician is only the beginning. It takes continuous education that will never end. But I love the challenge and figuring out the root problems of the skin. Educating clients on at home care is just as important to what I do in the treatment room. It's all about keeping long lasting results.

She has worked for Ford Motor Company, The Gillette Company and The Procter & Gamble Company. Her last corporate role was as P&G's Director, Global Packaging Purchasing, managing $6 Billion in spend.

These next two episodes will give you sound bites about leading in business as a woman, recognizing the patterns in your life that add up to your direction and mission, giving love and kindness as a true strength and the courage it takes to do this when you are not receiving it back. Dropping the socialization that women have been exposed to, to compete and gossip about each other, rather than identifying strengths that are unique to each of us, and collaborating. No longer feeling we need to be chosen based on our looks, how hard we work and perhaps need to drop this need to be recognized as equals but know we are. Discover Sonia's personal journey through the corporate world and how it impacted and trained her for where she is now, and sometimes we just don't know it, but we are being prepared for something greater, if we choose and pay attention. “I love you sister”. The Sister Accord is for all women of all nationalities, color and race. Discover what the Sister Accord does to help girls, women, young men and men across the world to unify and understand what drives them and their triggers, as Nicola and Sonia discuss triggers and underlying emotional wounds that make us react and act out. When you first hear Sonia say “I love you sister” you may think ‘that's not for me ‘ , you may think its ‘too emotional', you may deny it, but after a while, ‘I love you sister' grows on you … you will see. Even in corporate America, Sonia is now instilling this message into the corporate language which is now being seen in the products and services major corporations are creating.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 72 Critical Education Theory Series, Part 8 This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues into a second part a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire's landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation (https://amzn.to/3IJ4ZOT), and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here (https://newdiscourses.com/tag/critical-education-theory/). In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas of the first two chapters, revealing both how religious Freire is and how Marxist. Part 1, covering the first two chapters of the book can be found here (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/04/paulo-freires-politics-of-education/). In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James tackles the next two chapters of this book, chapters three and four, wherein it becomes abundantly clear that "Culturally Relevant Teaching" (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/02/critical-education-what-is-culturally-relevant-pedagogy/) is an Identity Marxist repackaging of Freirean education. His discussion highlights how messianic Freire is and pointing out that, in some sense, Freire's Critical Pedagogy stands in analogous relationship to the Gospel of John for the Marxist Theology (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/01/theology-marxism/). Freire's idea is that literacy means political literacy as understood in the Marxist way: formal education is bourgeois and Critical Education is a revolutionary praxis that can transform the oppressive state of the world. Freire's point, though, is positively religious, in the Johnnine sense in that his goal is to teach the word so the conscious can learn to speak the world. Join James Lindsay to unpack even more of what it means that all of our children now go to Paulo Freire's Marxist Sunday Schools.

Ms. Andringa has led the group since its public launch in January 2019. Ms. Andringa has more than 25 years of experience in communications, policy and coalition management. Prior to joining PAVE, Ms. Andringa spent two decades as a communications director in the United States Senate, managing public relations for a U.S. Senate office and several Senate committees, including the Senate Auto Caucus. Ms. Andringa received her B.A. in political science from the University of Pennsylvania. About PAVE: PAVE is a coalition of industry partners and nonprofit groups with one goal: To bring the conversation about automated vehicles (AVs) to the public so everyone can play a role in shaping our transportation future. PAVE's mission is purely educational—we don't advocate for a particular technology or specific public policies. Our members believe that we will best achieve the potential benefits of driverless technology if the public and policymakers know the honest facts of what is on the roads today and what is possible for the future. They believe that our roads can be safer, more accessible, and more environmentally friendly than they are today. They believe that the technical challenges of creating driverless vehicles -- while substantial -- are solvable, and that people will someday be able to choose the benefits of driverless technology. PAVE is a bet on the power of knowledge: they believe that if the public knows the facts, it's far more likely that the full capability of these technologies can be realized. Future of Mobility: The Future of Mobility podcast is focused on the development and implementation of safe, sustainable, and equitable mobility solutions, with a spotlight on the people and technology advancing these fields. linkedin.com/in/brandonbartneck/ brandonbartneck.com/futureofmobility/
