“These are messy questions in nature, and it's hard to get an answer to them when you have so many different conversations happening in real time, across so many customers. So we make sense of all that messy data with our technology. And then we provide a visualization of those conversations, those mentions, so that leaders can understand how to make better, faster business decisions that serve the needs of their patients.” - Sonciary Perez In this episode of Tactical Friday, Sonciary Perez gives us an opportunity to know a little bit more about Quala and what they provide as a resource.

Sonciary explains further how customers can email them, can chat with them, get in Zoom calls with their customers in order to ask for survey information and much more. They have set up teams to have these conversations and there are so many team members interacting with customers, whether they are executives, product managers, customer success, and support industry. In sum, it is their desire to provide their customers any way to get ahold of them and for them to enable their teams to have so many one-to-one conversations. They were able to achieve this by building what they call, “The Frontline Intelligence Platform” and what that means is that they are allowing or bringing in any channel where these conversations and interactions are happening with and about their customers into their platform so that leaders can mine the data and understand at scale, what is the qualitative narrative around their customers experiences are.

"The purpose of a pride flag is unification and visibility for the represented group - and the current polyamory flag does neither." "If you say polyamory or kink or leather can't be at pride 'for the kids,' then it's your choice where to bring them, not our responsibility to celebrate differently for your comfort." In today's episode, Laura talks to Kristian of Polyamproud, the not-for-profit tryign to update polyamory's pride flag, about the polyam flag, pride parades, the purpose of pride, history behind different Pride events, and why any of this is important in the first place. We also have a pleasant little vent about people trying to gatekeep who can attend Pride events and how and why, and there is a bit more foul language than usual on my (Laura's) part in that bit, because as those of you who follow my Twitter (lauracb88) know, I really can't stand the "every Pride event must be appropriate for my five year old and my banker" crowd. Essentially, we're here, many of us are queer, and we'd like a better flag, please, and today we talk about why. I hope you enjoy the ride. There's a lot of good background info on this at polyamproud's site listed below, and at their linktree here (linktr.ee/polyamproud). Polyamproud is a volunteer-operated not-for-profit organization aimed at updating polyamory's pride flag. Focusing on representation, inclusivity, and transparency, polyamproud is dedicated to ensuring as many polyamorous and non-monogamous people as possible have their voice heard in the democratic selection of an all-new pride flag. You can find them at polyamproud.com (polyamproud.com) or @polyamproud on Instagram and Twitter. In Ready for Polyamory news, the AUDIOBOOK IS HERE!!

Within the Western tradition, it was the philosophers Henri Bergson and Max Scheler who laid out and explored the nonrational power of "intuition" at work in human beings that plays a key role in orienting their thinking and action within the world. As author Adriana Alfaro Altamirano notes, Bergon's and Scheler's philosophical explorations, which paralleled similar developments by other modernist writers, artists, and political actors of the early twentieth century, can yield fruitful insights into the ideas and passions that animate politics in our own time. The Belief in Intuition: Individuality and Authority in Henri Bergson and Max Scheler (U Pennsylvania Press, 2021) shows that intuition (as Bergson and Scheler understood it) leads, first and foremost, to a conception of freedom that is especially suited for dealing with hierarchy, uncertainty, and alterity. Such a conception of freedom is grounded in a sense of individuality that remains true to its "inner multiplicity," thus providing a distinct contrast to and critique of the liberal notion of the self. Focusing on the complex inner lives that drive human action, as Bergson and Scheler did, leads us to appreciate the moral and empirical limits of liberal devices that mean to regulate our actions "from the outside." Such devices, like the law, may not only carry pernicious effects for freedom but, more troublingly, oftentimes "erase their traces," concealing the very ways in which they are detrimental to a richer experience of subjectivity. According to Alfaro Altamirano, Bergson's and Scheler's conception of intuition and personal authority puts contemporary discussions about populism in a different light: It shows that liberalism would only at its own peril deny the anthropological, moral, and political importance of the bearers of charismatic authority. Personal authority thus understood relies on a dense, but elusive, notion of personality, for which personal authority is not only consistent with freedom, but even contributes to it in decisive ways.

The Belief in Intuition: Individuality and Authority in Henri Bergson and Max Scheler (U Pennsylvania Press, 2021) shows that intuition (as Bergson and Scheler understood it) leads, first and foremost, to a conception of freedom that is especially suited for dealing with hierarchy, uncertainty, and alterity. Such a conception of freedom is grounded in a sense of individuality that remains true to its "inner multiplicity," thus providing a distinct contrast to and critique of the liberal notion of the self. Focusing on the complex inner lives that drive human action, as Bergson and Scheler did, leads us to appreciate the moral and empirical limits of liberal devices that mean to regulate our actions "from the outside." Such devices, like the law, may not only carry pernicious effects for freedom but, more troublingly, oftentimes "erase their traces," concealing the very ways in which they are detrimental to a richer experience of subjectivity. According to Alfaro Altamirano, Bergson's and Scheler's conception of intuition and personal authority puts contemporary discussions about populism in a different light: It shows that liberalism would only at its own peril deny the anthropological, moral, and political importance of the bearers of charismatic authority. Personal authority thus understood relies on a dense, but elusive, notion of personality, for which personal authority is not only consistent with freedom, but even contributes to it in decisive ways.

As an empath and healer, Jacqueline or affectionately called “Coach Jacqs” creates healing transformative spaces that gives women permission to live life unapologetically. As the founder of Mirrored Vision Coaching, LLC, Jacquie is purposed to help usher women into divine love and acceptance of themselves through safe talk spaces, retreats, teaching, coaching, and womb healing. She believes that women, through traumas, fears, abuse, can choose to live a life on their own terms and of her making. Jacqueline holds a master's in public administration and over 10 years with the federal government. She also holds several trainings and certifications in birth work, yoga and Reiki practitioner, womb health, and administration. “Sensuality is about living in the expression of who you are.” This is a statement that Jacqueline Greely lives by and helps other women to empower themselves to do the same. From a young age, Jacquie was always curious about human behavior and sexuality. Alongside her young teen books were reference guides on psychology, medical articles, and a few steamy romance novels from her grandmother's bookshelf! In college, she became a peer health educator as part of a work-study program assisting in clinics and workshops. Soon, she was leading a weekly contraception workshop for health clinic patients. Though post-college took her on a different path, women's empowerment never strayed far from her heart. In 2013, after suffering a devasting loss, Jacquie became a certified yoga instructor and shortly after became a full-circle doula. Focusing on the care of women in postpartum, she was once again able to support and educate women on accepting themselves wholly, especially sexually. Once again, at the start of the 2020 pandemic, Jacquie was offered an opportunity to fulfill her childhood dream of becoming a sexologist.

Sometimes, being the best asset on the market is not the best option. Listen to this episode's guest to know why!   Alex Moore is the Founder and Principal at Greywhale Capital, a private equity firm focused on commercial multifamily. Graduate of University of Pennsylvania, Alex has over 10 years of experience in medicine and has taken her keen attention to detail to her full-time focus on commercial multifamily. Alex is a seasoned multifamily investor and is head of acquisitions and asset management at Greywhale Capital, which has doubled in AUM year over year since its inception in 2019. She works with close partners nationwide to secure assets that are tax-advantaged, stable, and will bring consistent returns for Greywhale Capital's investors. Her number one focus is acquiring assets that are the best opportunities to meet the investment goals of Greywhale Capital's investors.   Alex shares her journey into real estate investing, starting with one duplex and now owning and managing large multifamily properties.

Because I think that's the thing that is the easiest to let slip, but it is one of the key differentiators to when you're putting in offers.   Intro  00:15 Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big.     Sam Wilson  00:27 Alex Moore is the founder of Greywhale Capital, a real estate private equity investment firm in San Francisco. She was a nurse practitioner, though I think she's still licensed. But she started investing in real estate while working full time and now runs Greywhale Capital. They acquire tax-advantaged multifamily assets in landlord-friendly states and help accredited investors place capital in those assets. Alex, that's a mouthful. Welcome to the show.   Alex Moore  00:50 Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it. And yes, that was a mouthful. You did very well. And I am still licensed but I do not currently practice.   Sam Wilson  00:59 Gotcha. Three questions I ask every guest who comes to the show: in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there?   Alex Moore  01:06 So I started with one duplex and got there by just starting in my hometown, was remote investing at that time, but I knew it really well. And I wanted to get something for a future college fund. So I decided hey, I'm gonna get and get this duplex. I didn't have any kids at the time, but I was like it'll be a great investment and, you know, some stability outside of the stock market. And then now I do large multifamily. So I just made my most recent close, was on a 330-unit in Houston. So big progress from there.   Sam Wilson  01:34 So wow, that is a lot of progress. What were some of the key iterations of your business along the way?   Alex Moore  01:41 Yeah, took me a little bit to choose multifamily and niche down into it. So I think this happens for a lot of people who like real estate and get into it, you try a little bit of everything, like a little potpourri. So it took a little bit of time for me to find the thing that I liked the best. So we did short-term rentals for a little bit, I did a triple net industrial space. And I also did retail for like a retail center where you have fun to triple net leases. So we learned the ins and outs of that explored mobile home park storage units, but realize my risk tolerance really fits with multifamily. And I also realized that what type of multifamily is my favorite. That also takes a little bit to niche down on as well.   Sam Wilson  02:17 Type of multifamily?   Alex Moore  02:18 Yeah, you think a lot of people think okay, apartment buildings, you know, you can get an apartment building and that crosses the box. But when you start digging in there, there are a bunch of different vantages. There's a bunch of different business plans you do on those and the returns look different based on what your plans are. And is this a cash flow play? Or is this something where you're just making huge alpha and then gonna go into the next asset? So you track different investors for each play. And you find that there's advantages to some and disadvantages to others. And so that's what took some time to find that as well. My focus primarily on Class B, the reason why I do Class B rather than Class C or Class A, is because that has, I think, the most recession-resistant tenant base because they can afford rent they can afford their payments are good at doing both of those, and they will pay for the extras. So when you do a value add program, that's the tenant class that really will pay for those.   Sam Wilson  03:13 Now Class B multifamily is like plain vanilla for the real estate, multifamily investor. Everybody, there's no disagreements on, everybody can handle it. Everybody wants it. How are you finding opportunity in that?   Alex Moore  03:29 Yes. I think when you hear people, they're like, this is what I want Class B, I want it to be an..   Sam Wilson  03:34 Plus value add multifamily more than 150 doors. I'm like you and the rest of America. So how are you finding deals?   Alex Moore  03:43 So submarkets, so I get really specific on what my market is within the market. So a lot of people say general areas, or they say I will buy anywhere in the Sunbelt, or I'll buy anywhere in Texas. You're not gonna get deal flow that way. And you're not going to be able to get really competitive on your pricing or on your rent projections. So find the submarket within your market, and really know that zip code and then know your supply chain. One of the big things is folks will purchase and not realize where new developments coming in. I'm finding new development, I actually think it's really helpful if it's already in place. But if you're going to be supplied ou,t if there's going to be a bunch of new build coming in, and you're putting in a value add program and there's Class A coming in... the market and then you're not gonna be able to hit your mark projections.   Sam Wilson  04:28 Right. That's a really valuable point there. Tell me about the term resiliency. What does that mean to you?   Alex Moore  04:35 For an asset or for myself?    Sam Wilson  04:38 Whatever.    Alex Moore  04:39 Yeah, I think when we're talking about an asset, I think it's important that your asset is resilient to the market changes because especially right now, and we're dealing with debt going up, we're dealing with inflation, and we're not sure if wages are going to keep up with that. Your asset needs to be not the best thing. Don't get the best product on the market. I think you need to get something that's a little bit under that. I mean, it's been performing as well as it could have. Maybe it's an operational issue, maybe it's management on site. And then you look at where can I get that asset to be better and perform better, but not be the best thing on the block. Because we don't shoot for those tenants. They totally exist. But when the market gets harder to pay for things, they're gonna look for a more affordable option. And I want to be that affordable option.   Sam Wilson  05:25 Right, absolutely. We've talked about all the time here on this show is when wage growth does not keep up with inflation. And even maybe, if there's a market correction, and people start doubling up, and then you know, rent projections can't be met. And all those things start to compound, what are you doing to protect yourself and your investments right now?   Alex Moore  05:46 Yep, exactly. One of the things that I focus on is, is it a tenant class that could sustain some additional amenities. So when you're in class C, they're not going to really sustain additional amenities like valet trash type packages, or adding an A backslash, they'd like it. But it's really not something they're going to pay for, it's going to be something that is assumed to be lumped in with your rent. So you can pull in those extra things because you're in a good market, where that is a demand, it's not always a given. But if you provide that that would be an extra lever. What I love about that is you can add those in, but it doesn't have to be part of your normal project plan. You're gonna go in have your interior next year upgrade plan, we have these additional things, you can also add in that provide you more levers to pull. Another one that I really love, which I think is discounted, people don't really think about it, but as a tenant storage is always an issue. And so if you provide competitive storage on-site, that's a huge thing. If you don't have to go down the street and pay $90 a unit, and you can offer something on site for 50 to $60. That's awesome. And then I've got another revenue stream for really an affordable build cost.   Sam Wilson  06:52 Yeah, absolutely. Tell us about when I say to you that messing up is okay. What does that mean to you?   Alex Moore  06:58 So, I think I'm leaning towards, I'm an analyst, and I also lean towards perfectionist. So if I don't have the answer, or if I don't have a plan for it, it makes me very uncomfortable. So I create a plan that's A, B, and C. And that gives you a way where if plan A doesn't work, you got Plan B and C. So it's okay if plan A doesn't work out because you got it back up. And also, you know, real estate in general is pretty resilient as an asset to invest in, because we've got ideally, so many ways that you can make it profitable. And you can hold longer if you need to, if you've got good financing terms. So you know, there's ways to mitigate it, you have to have a good plan and a good operator who's made sure that those contingencies are in place. But I think a lot of folks say I'm not gonna invest in real estate because there's too many unknowns. And I'm too concerned about X, Y, & Z things. And I think it's better to jump in and do it than to avoid it as an entire thing. So one of the best things to mitigate that anxiety is to, like, ask more questions, and more knowledge that you know, but then at some point, you got to jump in and do it.   Sam Wilson  08:03 What are some things you feel like you have messed up? But yeah, it turned out all right, in the end.   Alex Moore  08:09 Yeah, one of the things that and that's part of why I chose Class B as I started in class C, and I found it so easy to over-renovate, so you can spend more on these assets because they need it. And there's a lot of skeletons in the closet for deferred maintenance. And that goes very quickly when it comes to CapEx, and then on top of it, then you need to get your interiors updated so that you can get better rents, but it's very easy to over-renovate those units, and then you won't get those rents there.   Sam Wilson  08:38 Right, yeah, no, that's absolutely true. It's very easy to over-renovate. And it's also very easy to blow your budget, just bringing them up to something habitable.   Alex Moore  08:47 Exactly, something that meets good.   Sam Wilson  08:50 Right. It's not even maybe that you're putting in granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, it just gonna take you more money than what you budgeted for. That's a really good point. And how many of those Class C properties did you buy before you said, maybe I'm in the wrong spot?   Alex Moore  09:04 One.    Sam Wilson  09:08 Good for you. Yeah, you stuck strictly, you've done a whole bunch of different, you said you've done short term rentals, you've done triple net leases. But now you're solely multifamily. Is that right?   Alex Moore  09:18 That's correct. Yep. And part of the reason for that is, I think industrial has a great play there. If you're in the market, you know, you're leasing brokers, because it's all about those leases, getting the right tenants in. And when you're locked into a lease, it's a five to 10-year term. So you need to make sure that your rent bumps are in there, and if they don't pay, your values down, so I think there's a little bit for me more concern. If you get an anchor tenant and you're dealing with a national tenant, certainly they have, you know, they're accredited so they will pay, but they also are really competitive on the lease renewals. So you're not going to make as much on your returns. So that's one of the reasons why I pivoted out of industrial. I know a lot of people are playing in that space, more power to the, because I think it is a good space, if you can be the person who can take a building and lease it up to market. And you know, the people on you know the tenants to put in there.   Sam Wilson  10:08 What has been one of the keys to success for you and for your team?   Alex Moore  10:12 So one of the keys to success has been improving our turnaround time on underwriting and getting really responsive with brokers, because I think that's the thing that is the easiest to let slip, but it is one of the key differentiators to when you're putting an offer. So we do a turnaround time and we're getting faster at it or doing a turnaround time in under a week. And I think you can get there, the big guys are doing it in a day. That's where my goal is, is that we'll get there in a day. But I think if you're able to say you put in a verbal and then you put in an LOI within that week timeframe, that's a big differentiator.   Sam Wilson  10:47 When you think about that, you're compressing timeline, what do you think some of the things you guys are gonna have to implement that will make that possible?   Alex Moore  10:56 The biggest linchpin is making sure your rent comps are correct, because I think it all comes down to that. Everything else is gravy, it's great that you need to make sure that your rents are 100% accurate. So having a really good property management partner who can verify your rents and turn that around quickly is important. And then also having enough people to be able to call and verify rents on the ground. And it's just manpower, and it's just getting it done. So picking up the phone, making sure that your rents are accurate. I mean, you can use Yardi and CoStar as well. But I want to make sure that mine is the best for right now what's happening.   Sam Wilson  11:30 Right so it sounds like you use, you already in CoStar initially as a kind of a soft pass. But then yeah, you're gonna actually get out there, boots on the ground and hit the phones and find out what other rent comps are in the area.   Alex Moore  11:42 That's correct. Yep. And so that time spent is valuable. But that is, you know, sometimes people don't pick X, sometimes you don't need an answering machine. And those are actually good indicators to have how well are those managed in the area. So I like it as a soft check to for Hey, what's the competition? You're here? Alright, hey, folks that are hungry to get people into units or are they fall and it doesn't really matter. So maybe they're not pushing rent, or maybe the demands in that area are so high that the all area buildings, they don't have anything available? These are all great things to pick up while you're doing that calls.   Sam Wilson  12:12 Right. Yeah, getting your rent comps figured out in a shorter fashion. You feel like otherwise, you could get this turned around in the day yourself. No big deal.    Alex Moore  12:21 Yes, if we can get the rent comps verified that night, usually that's like, you know, 24 or 48 hour and then making sure our PM does a pass on it too. So then it turns into like three days. And that part is like oh, man would love to speed that up.   Sam Wilson  12:35 Right. Tell me about your team. What is it been like to build a team? And then also tell me about your experience raising money.   Alex Moore  12:44 Yeah, so building a team takes time, I think it's easy to hire quickly. But what I've learned is to hire slow, do multiple phases of interviews. And then to have an onboarding process. I think a lot of folks, you know, as an entrepreneur, you expect folks to just pick it up and learn it. But you do need to have an onboarding process need to have regular check-ins, regular meetings, and we do three rounds for the interview. So we've got a first initial screen, a lot of folks drop off after that. And then we have basically a first pass assessment. So you do whatever the task is, or whatever the job is, you do like homework, and then we have a real interview. And then after that, we make a final decision. And that really helps because you're not gonna have to do a lot of interviews. Because a lot of people don't make it through those first couple of hoops. And then with building a team, it's creating a culture of who want to show up and are excited to be here. So people who are eager to learn folks who are not just there to clock in and clock out, but people who are there for the mission of the firm. And I think that's a real big thing. So communicating that making sure folks are excited about that. And people will join in when they excited about something challenging and something they also believe in.   Sam Wilson  13:49 Right. Yeah, that's been one of the interesting shifts. I think that we've seen the workplace environment as a whole, not that I've ever really been very active in it. I guess I kind of read it. You know, I hear they're talking about it is just defining that mission and getting team members like people more now more than ever want mission behind what they do as much as they want, you know, a good steady job and a good paycheck. So I think that's really intriguing. Tell me about capital raising, getting capital raise for your deals. Yeah. walk us throught that journey.   Alex Moore  14:17 Yeah. So for capital raising, it's all been through family, friends and extended network. I think you don't realize how powerful that is until you start reaching out. I think also shifting from the mindset of I'm asking for money to give me an opportunity for an investment is very helpful. Because then it reframes for me and it also reframes for the folks that we have as investors. We're providing them an awesome opportunity. I mean, they don't get access to this on last year, a multi-millionaire or billionaire family that can direct buy apartment buildings like that's pretty bonkers. The barrier to entry for that is huge. So me, myself, do I you know, love the capital raising part? Probably not. I love finding the deals and sourcing them and I love going to market and walking properties like those are my favorite things to do. But I can always talk to an investor and explain all the metrics, because that's what I'm doing all the time. And I think that's, I love those calls. Like if someone has a bunch of questions about it hit me up. I got it.   Sam Wilson  15:19 That's awesome. Yeah. And I think that's a great mindset shift that a lot of us would do well, myself included, to commonly remember. That it is amazing opportunity. I'm bringing double-digit sometimes in returns to people, you can get lucky, you can find it. But it's not every day that you get such a stable opportunity to get returns on a risk-adjusted basis. It's like, Wait, this is bonkers. Use your word. So yeah, that's really cool. I love it. Alex, thank you for taking the time today to come on the show. You can kind of pull back the curtains on what it is you guys are doing submarkets within the market specializing in that knowing your supply chain talking a little bit about debt and inflation just talking a little bit but also you know how messing up is okay in this business, because generally it's fairly resilient.

Psychological safety is so important because if we can create that sense of safety, it frees up our creativity, our imagination, our innovation.

Ideally, it's the combination of both.”“Focusing inherently means you are choosing to do one thing and you're choosing not to do another”“Where the founder spends his time is where the gravity of the business is pulled towards.”“Italic really came from that pool of the time to find the financing environment and I think most importantly, the idea of being exciting.”“We really think of Italic as a flywheel, the more customers we have, the more leverage we have to bring on new manufacturers, the more manufacturers and the more leverage we have with them, the more products we can offer.”“We want to offer the same quality and same kind of level design as these great brands, but at a much more value-driven price point.”“If you're sharing an accurate picture of the company, it's up to the investor whether they decide to invest or not and do their diligence, it wasn't because you sold them a false narrative.”“Playing the game in retail means you have to find some angle that uniquely differentiates yourself from the others.”“When you're talking to investors they trust that you'll build a good company for them.”“Whoever you bring into the organization is what the organization is going to become. When you're small, it's more important than ever that you're bringing in people who fit the cultural kind of value you set.”“Make sure you are working on what is important because that doesn't really change, the heart of the business rarely changes. Of course, you'll hear an occasional success story, like slack or what have you, but more often than not, that doesn't change and it's important that you set the right north star.”“Execution makes the strategy successful, not the strategy itself.”

We live in an age of distraction. No matter what we have to do – whether it's writing an essay, working in an office, or just going about our daily lives – we are constantly at the mercy of internal and external distractions. These attention-breakers have serious consequences on our quality of work. The good news is that with our growing knowledge of the brain and improved technology, there are specific steps we can take to increase attention and improve focus. This week’s episode covers the difference between internal and external distractions and practical steps you can take to increase your focus. While our internal distractions are actually much more numerous than external, both can prevent people from focused work. I talk about the things you may be doing that prevent deep focus, then I give you steps you can take to mitigate distractions using short-term and long-term approaches. The full episode guide includes the matrix of focus along with tips and suggestions for how to focus from each of the various perspectives of the matrix.

Internal distractions come from within us, whether it’s a desire to check social media or feeling hungry. 80% of all distractions we encounter are internal. Focusing better is about controlling your mind. If you have too much on your mind (cognitive overload), you depress your ability to concentrate on the task at hand. Humans can’t multitask (do two things at once). Instead, we task switch, which takes time to refocus. Clear your physical and digital spaces from visual distractions.

You don't want to miss any in this series, but I also have a few more series coming out where I'm going to hit some major topics to help you Enjoy Life & Create The Future You Want.    Have you ever got a new car or truck? Maybe one that was just new to you? Did you ‌see it all over the place after you got it? Over my years, I've had a few different vehicles. Some were more popular and weren't. But, the same funny thing happened with each one. As soon as I started driving it, I saw that same car or truck all over the place.  Now, did everyone else go out and get that same used vehicle I got the same day I got mine? Of course, not.  I saw more of them because my attention was on the vehicle I was driving. I looked for them and I saw more of them.    What you look for can determine what you see.  See Success Past Right, wrong or whatever. See the benefit. Be kind to yourself Give yourself a little grace You're human If you don't see the success in your past, it will be more difficult to build on it. Future Believe in your future Believe that you can achieve. Maybe with some help, guidance, or even mentoring. If you don't see success in your future, it will be more difficult to pursue it.  Possibilities Life is full of possibilities. It is far more risky to never take a risk.  Be optimistic  If you don't see possibilities, it will be more difficult to take advantage of them. Challenges Today's struggles will give you the strength you'll need tomorrow.  If you don't see success in the challenges you face, then it will be more difficult for you to overcome them. Big Hope in the big things that are important to you Keeping the big things you want in mind can help you keep going in the right direction  If you don't see success in the big important things, it will be more difficult for you to achieve them. Small Value in taking the small steps Focusing on the small steps you need to take can help you continue to make progress If you don't see success in the small steps, then it will be more difficult for you to stay persistent in doing the work to achieve goals and create the future you want.    What can you do?  Start where you're at. Of the areas I just mentioned, which ones are you already seeing the successes? The Past, The Future, The Possibilities, The Challenges, The Big, The Small. What areas is it easier for you to look for and see the positives?  Which areas is it more of a challenge for you to see the positives? Or, your successes?  If you want to add the value of seeing the good things in any of these areas, the best way to do that is to write out. They can be small things. Maybe it's tough to list many positives in a certain area. That's okay. Start where you're at.  The more you can begin to see the successes in each area the more you'll be able to build on those successes, move forward, and make progress to even better.  If you focus on the negative, then that's what you'll get more of in your life. If you can see the successes (even in the challenging things), then that's what you'll get more of because you'll be able to capitalize on them.    Choose where you focus. Choose what you focus on. Choose what you see. The choice is yours.    Use your choices to help you live the life you want. What's one thing that you're going to look for more of in your life?

Episode page: https://valuecapturellc.com/he67 Welcome to Episode #67 of Habitual Excellence, presented by Value Capture. Joining us today as our guest is Denise Cardo, MD. Dr. Denise Cardo is the director of the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion (DHQP), National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Cardo joined CDC in 1993 as a medical epidemiologist in the Hospital Infections Program (later named as Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion). After holding several leadership positions in DHQP, she was selected as division director in 2003. Her interests include patient safety, occupational health, prevention of healthcare-associated infections, and antimicrobial resistance. She's recently the co-author of a NEJM Perspectives piece: Health Care Safety during the Pandemic and Beyond — Building a System That Ensures Resilience In today's episode, Dr. Cardo talks with host Mark Graban, about topics and questions including: Why should we aim beyond merely “getting better” and why should we be aiming for Zero Harm? Aim for “perfect healthcare with no harm? What are some practices that are not evenly distributed across the US? Working previously with PRHI - Ken Segel and Paul O'Neill? 70% decrease in harm showed what's possible Preventing preventable infections or ALL infections?? What is the role of CDC in promoting and partnering with healthcare organizations on patient safety? How has that evolved? Policies to incentivize - transparency and accountability Aligning payment to results… most countries aren't there yet Please tell us how the CDC partners with CMS, AHRQ, and other federal agencies? With private advocacy groups? Focusing on Americans, CDC is a global leader — Collaboration or learning from similar organizations in other countries that are focused on patient safety? Lessons from the Covid pandemic? As you wrote about in the NEJM, why have we seen more patient safety problems recently, including more falls, more infections, more pressure ulcers in hospitals and SNFs? You and your co-authors wrote the recent trends “severely suggests that our health care system lacks a sufficiently resilient safety culture and infrastructure.” Disparities and equity - not just access to care, but “quality care” Moving forward, what evidence would you expect to see if we DID have a “sufficiently resilient safety culture and infrastructure”?

Focusing firstly on the Psalms of Sunday vespers, Dr. Mahrt takes us through a tour of the Psalms and their antiphon pairings and how this helps us to understand the typological fulfillment of the Psalms in Christ, as well as the feasts of the liturgical year. We discuss the four senses of scripture and how singing the Divine Office opens up the meaning of the scriptures.

Why Autism Matters When You Are TTC and How To Improve Preconception Health

We're digging into autism and why this matters when you are TTC. Focusing on preconception health is important for your health, postpartum period and the health of your children. I didn't focus on my health prior to having my children and my postpartum period was rough. Both my kids have food sensitivities, asthma, ear infections, ADHD and more. It may feel like we need to rush to the fertility clinic to get pregnant ASAP. After all, the fertility industry tells us that we're too old, our eggs are too old and that the only option for pregnancy success is IVF. I believe that knowledge is power. You are in a very powerful place right now to really focus on your health and address missed healing opportunities that conventional medicine may tell you are normal. We're discussing the rising rates of autism in children and what may be causing this increase. Today I'm excited to welcome Luminara Serdar. Luminara is is an autism recovery expert. She's trained as a scientist in genetics, cell biology and biochemistry, as a functional nutritionist and holistic healer.   In this episode you'll learn: 1) Why would someone who is trying to conceive be concerned about autism? How to increase our chances of having a healthy baby. 2) The reasons for the increase in autism. 3) The factors that impact autism. 4) The role of food sensitivities, gut infections, heavy metals and nutrient deficiencies. 5) How genetics impact autism. 5) Diet and lifestyle changes to help with autism recovery. --- Resources Fab Fertile Method https://www.fabfertile.com/what-we-do/ Ep 193: How To Get Pregnant Naturally With Low AMH/High FSH https://www.fabfertile.com/blog/how-to-get-pregnant-naturally-with-low-amh-high-fsh/ Ep 176: Why this Matters for Your Postpartum Health https://www.fabfertile.com/blog/why-this-matters-for-your-postpartum-health/ --- Book your Supercharge Your Fertility Discovery call here with your partner (https://bit.ly/getpregnantpodcast) During our call, we'll be discussing what you have tried so far and where you've faced challenges.
