In this episode I go over how to build a 6-figure personal brand! Building a personal brand has become my favorite side hustle because it's not only lucrative but extremely fulfilling. In the past I grew tired of chasing numeric goals and honed in on my interests and how I could help people. This led me to creating my YouTube channel, TikTok, Instagram, podcast, blog, etc. that has grown dramatically and I'm very grateful for it. Even though it sounds great it also is a LOT of work, so I want to go into what it takes to build a personal brand that can support you financially.

Darren and Paige had a different podcast subject planned for today. However, after Mother's Day came around, we saw a lot of feelings around this day and thought we would do another episode on this topic. This day is hard for many; how can we make it better????Mother's Day is supposed to be an amazing day!!! Right?So here is another Mother's Day in the books. How was it for all of you? Were your expectations met? Managed? Complete disappointment? This is already sometimes a difficult day for women for a multitude of reasons, but mostly because of unmet expectations. I'm sure some very nice person came up with Mother's Day thinking what a nice thing, to have a whole day to make moms feel special...they had no idea what they were creating. Women can build up this day as a kind of reward for the other 364. When this day arrives and it is not the blissful fantasy we have in our minds, it falls short and reality hits. Now add in the complication of a blended family and oh boy, tricky.What can we do to help the day be a happy one? Plan a group event. Fun to be with many people, friends and family. Helps the focus be off of just you (if you want that). This is not for you is you want all the attention on you. Figure out what is best for your situation. Be specific with gift giving or risk getting a toaster. Some men are great at gift giving and plan creative things way in advance. Most are not. BE BOLD! Don't drop hints that he will not decipher. Be specific, very specific. Maybe have an Amazon list to share with family. If money is an issue, make sure to let it known that you want a card from everyone. Or you want a few hours to yourself, or watch a movie you pick. Let them know in advance you would like a nice breakfast made by not you. Get out there what you want. Not in a bratty way, in a nice, I'm helping you out kind of way. Remember the kids. This is for a blended family specifically. Remember that your children probably did not ask to have a mother and a stepmother in their lives, they have had to adjust to the decisions made around them. Don't make this harder by making them choose who they have to make feel the most special. Let them focus on their mom on this day, if she is in their lives. Pick another day to celebrate with them if that is what you want. Curb expectations. If you are hoping that your children will make some grand gesture to prove that they love you more than anyone else in the world, you are being unrealistic and a little unreasonable. Set expectations low and reasonable and be pleasantly surprised if it exceeds them. Don't overthink it. Mother's Day is a special occasion, but it is not the end all be all. If things don't work out exactly as you had hoped, don't assume that it is an indication of how your family feels about you. Resist the urge to indulge in self-pity and remind yourself that everyone is trying their best, even if it doesn't live up the the day you've created in your mind. We all approach Mother's Day with hopes and expectations. Sit down and take 5 minutes and figure out what those (reasonably) are and then communicate to your spouse or/and kids, what you need.

If you're dying to dramatically increase your revenue and sales, it's high-time that you ditch the old school selling methods that taught you to become product pushers and start focusing on selling the outcomes of your product. Aside from that, salespeople also need to start getting back into what our guest calls “the growth mode”. Your sales teams have to move out of the survival mindset and turn the corner through seeing opportunities in the problems around us. I talk about this with my guest in today's podcast episode, Darrell Amy, the host of the Revenue Growth Engine podcast. Darrell enlightens us about what it takes for salespeople and their companies to increase their revenue and sales amidst all the turmoil we're in.

In this episode, I had the opportunity to have a candid conversation about mindset, boundaries, and processes with the talented and ever-resilient designer Jami Sparling. About Jami Sparling Jami Sparling is the Principal Designer and Creative Director of BryCo. Interiors She officially turned her lifelong passion for interior design and decorating into a career when she founded BryCo. Interiors in 2019, leaving an 11-year career as a Paramedic, behind. Jami now operates BryCo Interiors alongside her husband Brad, and offers Full-Service Interior Design & Decorating in London and surrounding areas. Since starting, she quickly realized the benefit of having a team… thanks to reading many business books! They now have a team of 5, a 3000 sq ft warehouse with a design studio, and even a moving van. BryCo. Interiors is a heart-centered business with a focus on relationship building. They value investing in their growth, both personally and professionally so they can offer their best selves to the people they connect with. With an emphasis on mental health, Jami has created a positive work environment and company culture where everyone is working within their individual strengths so they truly love what they do. This mindset pours into all of the projects they commit to. Although Jami is the visionary, her husband Brad is their integrator and he keeps everything running like a well-oiled machine. With their systems and processes in place, mixed with their creativity and kind communication, they are dedicated to delivering a great client experience every step of the way. From the very beginning of the episode, our conversation is very open and honest as Jami shares her life and career journey, along with her experience of overcoming PTSD, her life as a single mom, and a determined career woman. I absolutely loved hearing her thoughts on learning to say NO to people, because as Jami says "when you say yes to one thing you're ultimately saying no to something else" because it really isn't feasible to say yes to everything. Jami also shares how she runs her business and how she is dedicated to working only with "kind clients" as this ensures a more enjoyable working experience not only for herself but also for the clients as there will ultimately be less friction. I connected with Jami when she took my Power of Process course the very first time I offered it, since then she's been an active member of our open design community and then took the chance to include me further in her business journey by joining my inner circle coaching membership, Designers Room. Jami shares how Power of Process and Designers Room have been instrumental in helping her make concise decisions in her business. She went from offering all sorts of services to refining it down to 1 core offering and successfully growing her business. (This is music to my ears!) Dive into the entire episode because you won't want to miss one second of this one. Get to know who you are. Figure out who you are as a person and that will completely change your life.

[00:00:16] Do whatever you're doing as a hobby or passion or whatever, just really figure out what you want to do. [00:00:21] Intro: Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate show to Scale Commercial Real Estate. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. [00:00:32] Sam Wilson: Anthony Scandariato auto is the co-founder of Red Knight Properties. [00:00:36] Red Knight currently has over a hundred million dollars in assets under management, 750 units in four different states on the east coast. Anthony, welcome to the show. [00:00:45] Anthony Scandariato: Great to be back on Sam. Really appreciate you having me on again. Pleasure's mine. [00:00:48] Sam Wilson: You came on episode number 72. So the show was just getting kicked off there. [00:00:53] I think you want to go back and listen to Anthony's story. We won't spend a lot of time on today's show, here. Previous the story that he shared with us on episode 72, that was on February 9th, 2021. By the time this goes live, this will probably somewhere close to June of 2022. So that's almost 16 months later in case somebody though they didn't get the chance to listen to it. [00:01:13] Can you give us a 92nd synopsis where you started, where you are now? [00:01:18] Anthony Scandariato: Yeah. As Sam said, one of the co-founders of Red Knight Properties were a privately held boutique mixed use and multifamily investment management company for real estate, as well as a property management team. As Sam said, we have about a hundred million dollars under management. [00:01:32] I think when I came on Sam show, we were more like 60 million. So basically doubled from that your time period. We did quite a bit of deals in 2020. And over 750 units, I think we only had maybe 400 units give or take in three different states. Now we're in four different states. So pretty exciting. [00:01:49] I think we were just closing in our first Southeast state of this great state of Florida. We're actually starting to sell some assets now given the state. Where the market is and how quickly, especially the state of Florida has really grown from so many different standpoints. So we're starting to sell some of our assets that we weren't even considering selling for another three to four years from now. [00:02:13] We're actually selling early. So happy to talk about why we're starting to sell early. Yeah, deviating from our business plan a little bit. [00:02:21] Sam Wilson: Love to hear that the floor is yours. Why are you selling early? [00:02:25] Anthony Scandariato: Sure. So I started my company 2018. We can go back to the other episode and listen, but since basically 2018 acquired almost a thousand units at this point. [00:02:36] And once we're value added investors, we come in and find operational inefficiencies. From a management standpoint and mostly from a management standpoint and we're buying assets from motivated sellers long-term owners, when we're investing in CapEx that hasn't been put to a life and 10 to 15 years, and we're really bumping the rents up and for us to get 25% rent bump within the year with. [00:03:01] We're not just investing the dollars necessary in order to get that bump. We're not just going in and raising the rents like a lot of other operators. We just think at this point in the cycle and this is releasing in like mid Q2 in 2022, when interest rates are on the rise inflation is still going to be carried out in my opinion for the next couple of years, probably not going to be as elevated as it was 2021, but it's still going to be a problem. [00:03:25] Moving forward. Long-term depends what the fed decides to do probably by the time this is released, we'll probably raising another half a point. But with all those macroeconomic situations rates, aren't going to go down inflation is going to stay pretty high in which means rents are still going to go up. [00:03:42] We just think the value, it's almost like we front-loaded a lot of the appreciation over the past couple of years. And I feel like we're not going to just see that huge increase in spike and value that we saw. Once the fed basically did their QE and rates were at near zero for a couple of years, it's just, the values are going to start to slow down. [00:04:03] I'm not saying they're going to crash. They're going to slow down. And obviously in the commercial real estate and all it's all driven on NOI, right? So as quickly as you can get rents up for us and we see the value, there's a property in Florida we're selling for double what we pay for it a year ago. [00:04:19] And our projections weren't even assuming that five years. So we're looking at the returns and we're like if we can provide people basically double their money in a year, and then we could do some tax deferred strategies, reinvest the capital. If they decide to come back, reinvest the capital into another opportunity, that's maybe not in as hot of a market as far as, because there's a lot of capital. [00:04:42] We were talking about this on our show, which I'm planning to release as well. Sam was on my show, Discovering Multifamily and we were just talking about some of the pivots he's been making to his business. We're doing very similarly, but we're sticking with our asset class, multi-family we're going into other markets. [00:04:57] Now we're looking at Midwest markets that haven't really been tapped as much as the Southeast has been lately, even where I'm based in the Northeast. It's always been a little saturated. So we're pivoting. Where all the money's flowing. We want to come in early and then you kinda gotta know when it's right to get out. [00:05:14] And as of right now, we could refinance. Everybody can get the money back. We can roll that into another property. Great birth strategy for commercial real estate. And I think we touched on that in the previous session. You just got to do your numbers and see what makes sense and really just analyze all the risks in the economy and an informed and educated decision might not be the best decision, but at least you want to just have an opinion and you want to be able to come up with some logic behind, okay, why are we selling early? [00:05:41] Why are we selling four years early? The reason is X, Y, Z so it's very interesting and you're seeing it in the market as well. I'm sure. We'll see what happens. A lot of other operators I've talked to are experiencing the same type of feelings, starting to sell assets early. And they're doing well on them. [00:05:58] Sam Wilson: There's never a bad time to execute the entirety of the business plan in a shorter timeframe. It's oh, great. Lucky us. We said five years and now we're going to do it in one. That's okay. That's quite okay. I'm really curious when you think about the inflation to rent price ratio, right? [00:06:16] Like we've seen inflation the published seven ish percent and then we've seen rents again it's a very localized number, but let's just use. Arbitrary insights, 15% on a national average. I don't know what it is on a national average, but it's greater than what inflation has been at some point. [00:06:32] Do you feel like that is going to swap like positions there where the rents are not keeping up with where inflation is going? Just because people don't have the income to support it at some point. [00:06:44] Anthony Scandariato: Do you think that okay, you're right. It depends upon wage growth. At the end of the day, you really should be looking at CPI that likes to quote PCE. [00:06:52] So PCE. They don't have. Really rent, like the real red figures in that number. So I think inflation is higher than what they're representing, to be honest with you. And I know a lot of other people do as well. At some point, yes, it's good. We like to look in markets where rent is maybe 25% to 33% on the high end of their wages of their income. [00:07:15] So if the wage inflation is not keeping up with rent or just regular CPI inflation, Yeah, it's going to be a problem. There's still a supply and demand issue. Over the past couple of years, I think the level of new homes and also new apartments are down 50%. It's only going to get worse because now with rates rising, there's gonna be a lot of builders that go belly up, unfortunately is going to be a lot of customers. [00:07:39] I think on the single family side, pulling out of deals on the apartment side, it's getting harder to build because costs are just higher. So they're going to have to pass that onto the consumer. I specialize in the class C space. So we're trying to buy deals below replacement costs in the first place. [00:07:55] So yeah, it's going to be a problem. I, again, like I said, I keep going back to, I think we front-loaded a lot of the appreciation. We're not going to see 20% year over year. It's just, it's stupid. And I get opportunities from other sponsors who will still believe that's going to happen. [00:08:10] Who knows if you're buying in the state of Florida, maybe it's going to happen. I don't want to see a projection where, you know, on a class C property where you're projecting $2,000 a month for a one bedroom apartment. Even if you renovate it, it's just something about that in a suburban area. It just doesn't seem right to me. [00:08:25] Like you said, Sam, you got to look. The employment drivers and it's all local employment drivers in the area. Where are the jobs? What type of wages are they paying? Is that industry experiencing wages, coalitions across the board? In my opinion unemployment's near time, all time low. [00:08:42] I actually think the unemployment rates probably in the short term, going to go down. Even further, but then probably by the end of the year and go back up a couple of points. We'll see. So it's a very interesting conundrum. The good thing about the commercial real estate world is if the rents still keep going up, let's say three to 4% a year. [00:08:58] Your NOI keeps going up. If interest rates rise, theoretically, it's not always one for one, but. Rise a little bit, maybe 10 basis points for every hundred basis points and interest rate move, which is weird. Cause it's not one-to-one correlation. And again, it's still a lot of money out there that we're just on the sidelines for two years, chasing multifamily, industrial self storage, those three hot asset classes concentrated in different areas. [00:09:24] Now, like I said, in the south and my opinion, it's just still a lot of cheap money out there. A lot of balance sheet lenders, a lot of bridge debt. I'm a little nervous for some of the sponsors who took on very high leverage bridge debt, and they think they're going to get out of it in two years and they're may be slow in their business plan. [00:09:39] And when they go to refi, they got to do a capital call because the value is not there. So I'm a little concerned with that. But for sponsors that have been experienced around there, that's good opportunity for them to start picking up some of those quote unquote distressed properties. But I still don't think we're going to see that for a couple of years, right? [00:09:56] Sam Wilson: No, couldn't agree more. Talk to us about your deal that you are exiting. Your role in that, or at least some of the proceeds of that into another deal. Are you doing one large, 1031 with your investors? And they're just going into the next deal or what's the process like on that? [00:10:12] Anthony Scandariato: Yes, the sale hasn't been completed well, by the time this is released, it'll probably be completed. As a sponsor and just some pieces of advice, it's very difficult to do a 1031 in a syndication. Very difficult in my experience, if you don't have a TIC set up from the beginning, it's going to be very challenging for you to moving forward. [00:10:29] So what we're doing is. As if we sold the building and we were buying nothing else, however, we are fortunate to find another opportunity. And we do cost segregation studies and the ability to pick up bonus appreciation. This is 2022, I think is the last year for a hundred percent bonus depreciation. [00:10:47] So whatever capital gain my investors, including myself, cause I invest as well. I have to pay hopefully if they choose to reinvest most of it or all of it can be offset by another reinvestment. So it's not a 10 31 exchange, but there still is some tax benefits and deferrals, cause you still have to pay it at some point. [00:11:05] So that's what we're currently working on. But yeah, it's tough to do a 1031, if you don't have it set up for the beginning of the TIC, [00:11:12] Sam Wilson: when you say set up from the beginning, can you explain that? You mean set up in the initial investment as a, so you're saying you're going to a Tenancy, which to those you're listing a Tenancy in Common deal, you're going to Tenancy in Common. [00:11:25] Then you go to your 1031 intermediary, you roll the money into the intermediary, and then you go to the next deal as a Tenancy in Common. Is that what. Correct. [00:11:32] Anthony Scandariato: And it becomes complicated if you don't have Tenancy in Common structure set up from the beginning, because you could have one investor that just wants out. [00:11:39] Just wants their money back. And it happens. We've done deals where we've refinanced. We give everybody a money back and maybe one or two people, oh, I need the money because I'm buying a house or I'm doing this I'm going on vacation. So with the 1031 and the TIC, if we set it up from the beginning, they would actually all just move forward because it's not set up initially. [00:11:58] They and everybody was on board except one or two people. It blows up the TIC [00:12:03] Sam Wilson: there's a way around that. Cause I was just involved in a deal and I was that investor yeah, I didn't want to roll over one cause I wasn't in love with the next opportunity. And then secondly, because I had invested with my IRA funds, so it didn't really matter to me if we were 10 and they didn't set it up as a 1031 in the beginning. [00:12:18] So I'm like, one, I don't like your deal. The second deal. And two, like I gain nothing by this is a self-directed IRA. So I gained nothing by 1031-ing this. So I want out, right? So I was that pain in the neck investor, sorry, Anthony. But there was a way around it and I don't know what they did in the deal. [00:12:35] They found a way, but it was paperwork heavy to your point. It was paperwork heavy and there was new LLCs created [00:12:42] Anthony Scandariato: and neither of us are tax advisors or experts. So we're not the right people. [00:12:46] Sam Wilson: Right. No, don't take anything. I say here's tax or legal advice. That's for sure. But just to note that there is a way around it, it's just messy. [00:12:53] So to your point, let's avoid all the mess. We can get 2018 to now, what have you seen change on the capital raising side of things? And are you guys doing anything differently than you were four years ago? Yeah, [00:13:06] Anthony Scandariato: I think it's streamlined more, becoming easier to raise capital. And as we were talking, there's a lot of money still out there in the system. [00:13:13] And also a lot of we cater to individual investors. So we're usually talking to mostly high net worth individuals that putting in 50,000 or a hundred thousand into a deal and looking for income and also equity upside at the sale or the. It's really grown upon itself. I think once you've been around and I've been in the industry since 2014, so it's not 2018, I worked for somebody else. [00:13:40] But once you develop a reputation and you start producing case studies, you start selling, you start refining. The case may be, you'll be able to show those returns into find more investors and more partners. It becomes easier in that sense. And your network starts to grow. Obviously we both have podcasts, so both of our networks have grown from that. [00:13:59] I think you just have to have a system in place. We have investor portal, we have software that kind of manages relationships, CRM, and it grown upon itself. Most of our new investors come from existing investor referrals. There's always the one-off the founders on LinkedIn or our podcast. But it's probably similar to you. [00:14:18] 70% of referrals. Yeah. [00:14:19] Sam Wilson: Awesome. And that's so true. You'll get one-offs. But a lot of it, it's a very referral based system. If someone were getting in the business today and they're launching out and they want to invest in multifamily, what is one piece of advice you would give? [00:14:34] Anthony Scandariato: Just figure out if you really want to be active, or if you want to be passive, figure out what you want. [00:14:39] Cause they're both very different. I started out active. I'm obviously still active my ultimate goal. And we were talking about this on your show. Staff is I'm still young. So are you is to become fully limited partner and fully passive at some point. Just figure out what your goals are, figure out what you want. [00:14:54] You really want to be managing maintenance, technicians, leasing agents. It's really an operating company. So you really want to take on that or do you just want to partner with someone who's experienced like Sam or whoever the sponsor is and have your money work for you? To whatever you're doing as a hobby or passion or whatever, just really figure out what you want to do. [00:15:14] Cause I have people who have come to me that want to be active, and then I start telling them how much work it is and be like, you know what, let me just put my money in a deal and then let's see how you do it. And then if I think it's a lot of work, then I'm not going to do it moving forward. [00:15:26] So that's happened. It can count on one. Definitely multiple times happened, [00:15:31] Sam Wilson: right? Yeah. That's so true. Absolutely so true. And that's a great point because a lot of people want to get involved in real estate. Then they get overwhelmed with the mechanics of it. Oh my gosh, there's so many terms. How do I do this? [00:15:42] How do I do that? And then it becomes confused. Mind says no. And they shut down the easiest way and the best way, at least for me, the same as you, I think is that become a passive investor. That's how I cut my teeth in this. It came in as a passive investor and I learned through. While investing. And it was like, oh, okay, now I understand it. [00:15:59] So that's an absolutely fantastic point, Anthony, thank you for coming on the show today. Pleasure to have you back. I've enjoyed our conversation. Learned certainly a lot more about what you guys are doing while you guys are exiting deals where you see the market going. And then also, you know how you guys are protecting yourselves. [00:16:14] Certainly enjoyed that. Thanks for sharing your wisdom with us. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do.

In episode 13, Chris and Emma were joined by Dr. Amanda Harper, an educator and Dąbrowski scholar from Tasmania, Australia. We discussed the deep and fascinating work that Amanda has done in examining Dąbrowski’s writing. The focus was on two of her published papers: one on Empathy and the Syntonic Continuum, and the other on Philosophy, Faith, and the Personality Ideal. We talk about the differences between syntony and empathy, how they look across various levels, and how Amanda mapped them in order to create a visual guide to these important dynamisms. We explore the value of defining terms, and why using Dabrowski’s own language and quotes helps us gain greater meaning from the theory of positive disintegration. Reading Dabrowski’s work can be a ‘treasure hunt’ for both academic purposes and within your own life!Amanda shared what it was like to study the theory during her master’s and doctoral programs, and compared notes with Chris who also has experience examining constructs over time in Dąbrowski’s original texts, as well as the value and experience of attending conferences and meeting up with the Dabrowski community.Resources mentioned during this episodeJasneath Education (Amanda’s website with courses available for purchase)Remember to check out Amanda’s newsletter. The papers we mentioned: Through the Dąbrowski Lens: Empathy and the Syntonic Continuum (2019)Through the Dąbrowski Lens: Philosophy, Faith, and the Personality Ideal (2017)Through the Dąbrowski Lens: A Fresh Examination of the Theory of Positive Disintegration (2017)Amanda’s new chapter can be found in the Palgrave Handbook of Transformational Giftedness for Education:Through the Dąbrowski Lens: Wisdom, Transformational Giftedness, and the Personality IdealThe Dabrowski International Facebook group where Chris and Amanda are admins with Bill Tillier.

The quotations we read during the episode:“The term syntony is used within Dąbrowski’s writings to describe a sense of balance and oneness. This refers to a state where there is no inner turmoil and no conflict but there is a deep sense of connection and unification with existence in the world” (Harper & Clifford, 2019, p. 36).“Empathy is a response based on reflection, a sense of nurturing toward other people, and an understanding of others’ circumstances (Dąbrowski, 1973)” (Harper & Clifford, 2019, p. 37).“Growth of empathy is one of the most powerful developmental dynamics and one which most clearly shows the progressive and hard won change from narrow egocentrism to an all-encompassing universal love. Empathy grows out of the strong emotions of search for the meaning of life and finding it in concern and service to others, and out of the need for self-perfection as a human being. Self-perfection is not possible in a vacuum but grows out of a sense of relatedness with others measured in terms of an “ideal other” embodied in one’s personality ideal. It grows out of conflicts with oneself which produce an increase in caring and appreciation of others, and deeper humility within oneself.” (Dąbrowski, 1996, p. 70) “Without the tragic, the challenging, the conflicting, and the confronting, an individual cannot—will not—experience the inner psychic transformation necessary for multilevel development or the emergence of a full empathic condition and cannot move toward the personality ideal. Similarly, without these challenges and anxieties, we are not equipped to understand or experience in its fullness the tapestry, elation, and fulfillment of the process of development.” (Harper & Clifford, 2019, p. 265)Here are the graphic representations that were mentioned during the episode:Amanda’s Syntonic Continuum from her 2019 paper:The Constellations of Dynamisms figure that Chris mentioned pulling up during the discussion of syntony and empathy as “continuing dynamisms”:This figure is from Dąbrowski (1996) and includes this description: Figure 1 shows that at each level of development there is a different constellation of factors. Roman numerals refer to levels, C refers to that category of factors whose operation extends over several levels of development. Dark shading indicates tension in the operation of a given factor. Tension abates toward higher levels of development. But there is one exception—personality ideal—the highest dynamism which increases in significance and power as development advances to higher levels. The spindle shapes are, meant to indicate the incipience and disappearance of a given factor. They reflect an expected frequency of responses identifiable as expression of a given factor. Thus, for instance, when the dynamisms of level III appear and gain ground, the three dynamisms of level II should disappear.

It's so easy to get caught up in what we do, be that logo design, vehicle wraps, websites, trade show booths; you name it. We forget that our clients don't live in the same world as we do. Our clients don't see the world through a designer's eye. When they look at a billboard, they see the message. When a designer looks at a billboard, not only do we take in the content and message. But we also take in the layout, the hierarchy, the use of negative space and the colour pallet. We note what fonts are used and what imagery they chose to relay their message. When we see something that isn't kerned correctly, we feel the need to point it out. We feel almost obliged to mention every stock image we recognize out in the wild. "See that photo of that happy family in that car insurance ad? I saw that exact photo on Depositphotos." And we stop to admire displays, posters, cards and everything else we think is well designed. After all, when you see something that you feel is well designed, don't you secretly start cataloging pieces of it away in your mind so you can “borrow” the idea for something you create in the future? As designers, our brains are just wired that way. We see the world through a designer's eye. But sometimes, we forget that non-designers don't see the world the way we do. My wife has perfected the eye roll she uses whenever I start talking design about something I see. Sometimes she'll feign interest, but I know that she doesn't care that the line spacing on the restaurant's menu is too tight. She just doesn't get it because she's not a designer. But neither are our clients. That's why they hire us for their projects. And sometimes, it's easy to forget that they don't have the same knowledge as us, nor the same interests. And they view the world through a different set of lenses than we do. That's why it's a good idea that before you say or present anything to a client, you try to consider it from their point of view. Case in point. A designer shared an intro packet PDF in a design group I belong to, asking for advice. The PDF is to give prospective website clients to explain what a CMS is, a Content Management System. She went into great detail, outlining everything there is to know about CMSs. I how thorough she was. However, I and several others pointed out that it wasn't suitable for clients. She explained how databases work, with columns and rows and entry IDs. and how you can edit a database directly with tools such as phpMyAdmin. Then she explained how she builds a custom portal for each client that allows them to easily add, delete, and edit posts in the database. And finally, she explained how the items in the database end up displaying on the web page. She even showed examples of the PHP code required to make it all happen. Nothing was wrong with anything she presented, except that most of them are redundant to clients. A client doesn't need to know how databases work or how the info from the database ends up on a web page. All the client needs to know is their website will have a CMS with an easy-to-use interface allowing them to add, delete and edit the content of their site. Remember, these are perspective clients. Meaning they haven't committed to working with you yet. You don't want to scare them away before they've had a chance to work with you. Donald Miller, the author of Building a StoryBrand, said it best. “If you confuse, you'll lose.” Consider your marketing message from a design client's perspective. Let's say you specialize in logo design, and you showcase your three-step process on your website. Step 1) I start with a meeting. I have a list of over 50 questions I ask you, covering everything from how your company got started, to your mission, to where you see the future going. This allows me to get to know you and your business. Step 2) I take the answers you gave me and start the research process. I take a close look at what your immediate competition is doing. I examine your industry as a whole to determine if there are any trends we may want to follow. I may conduct focus groups to learn more about what your clients think of you. I then gather all this information and begin the concept stage, where I brainstorm and develop several different ideas. I then narrow it down to the most promising ones and fine-tune them until I'm satisfied. Step 3) I present you with the best ideas. If required, we then enter the revision process, where you are allowed three sets of revisions to tweak your logo until you are satisfied. Once done, I'll create a brand guide that outlines the rules for using your new logo and supply everything you'll need in various file formats. This shows a comprehensive process. And a designer may think this is perfect for showing the client why they're worth the price they're charging. However, it may have an adverse effect from a client's point of view. "50 questions? I just want a logo for my new business. Why does it have to be so complicated? Maybe I should find another designer." Imagine a client's perspective if they saw this on your website. Here is my three-step process. Step 1) I take the time to get to know you and your business. Step 2) This is where the magic happens as I develop the perfect logo for your business. Step 3) I present you with the best concepts for you to choose from. Don't worry. You'll be allowed to suggest minor adjustments to tweak the logo until you're 100$ satisfied. Now, this a client can understand. All the other information is redundant or can be relayed once the person becomes an actual client. Presentation and mockups. If you are not using mockups in your presentation, you are doing yourself and your clients a disservice. I can tell you from experience that mockups make a massive difference in a client's decision-making process. Many clients are not visual thinkers like designers are. Their creativity isn't honed like ours to imagine how things will look in different situations. A logo presented on a white background doesn't have the same effect as a logo shown on a storefront, a shirt or a vehicle. A tri-fold brochure displayed flat may look good. But it doesn't have the same oomph as a mockup showing what it looks like when partially folded. I've had several clients over the years tell me they were hesitant about a logo design I presented until they saw the mockups. Once they saw the logo “in action,” they saw its full potential. That's because clients often can't picture it on their own. Asking them to imagine the logo on the side of a delivery van is nowhere near the same as showing them the logo on a delivery van. When you prepare your presentations, thinking like a client can help you close more deals. Showing confidence, a client's perspective. You know the way you can sometimes tell when a person isn't sure of themself. It's offputting. Try to think about how you come across when dealing with clients. From the client's point of view, do you show confidence? Think about it. As you're pitching yourself to a potential client, They're looking at you and considering whether or not you're someone they want to work with. And that decision may have nothing to do with your actual pitch. From the client's point of view, they want to see someone who shows confidence in themself and their ability to do the work. You want every encounter with a potential client to end with the prospect thinking, “This is someone I want to work with.” Let's talk pricing from a client's perspective. Once again, thinking from a client's point of view. Are your prices too high or too low? Is a client willing to invest in you? There's no right or wrong answer regarding how you price yourself. It comes down to the type of client you want to work with. Think of it this way. Let's say you're in the mood to go out for a steak dinner. You can find a restaurant that serves a $20 steak. Or, you can go somewhere else and get a $200 steak. What's the difference? The difference is how much you're willing to spend on a steak. People who opt for the $20 steak might never consider spending $200 for a similar meal. However, some people regularly go out for $200 steaks and would never consider a $20 cut of meat. Now for all we know, both steaks came from the same cow. But that's beside the point. The person who opts to spend $20 on a steak and the person who opts to pay $200 have two different mindsets. Neither is right or wrong in their decision. It's just the way they are. The same thing applies to design clients. Thinking again from their perspective. Most clients who consider Fiverr a good place to get designs made would probably never consider paying thousands of dollars for a freelancer. And there are just as many clients who are willing to spend thousands of dollars which would never consider ordering from a cheap designer. So who are you marketing to? Do you want low-paying clients to say you're their person? Or do you want high-paying clients to think you're the perfect designer for them? Figure that out, and then target yourself to go after that group of clients. In this case, thinking like a client can help you land the clients you want. I could go on and on about how thinking like a client can benefit you. But I think you get the idea. Most clients are not designers. They don't think like designers, nor do they see the world around us the same way designers do. Don't let that become a gap between you and them. Before everything you do, ask yourself, “How would a client experience this?” And if you're successful at doing this. There's no reason why your design business shouldn't be successful either.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
