Behind the web camera is my Sony A7 three, which like maybe 5% of people like, know what that is? And I got like the lens which should be perfect for this distance to have everything behind me out of focus.AndrewThen I have like this monitor. I forget the name of it, like this other screen attached to it so I could see myself scramble, like walk behind my desk. But okay, this shot's good. And then I got this, like, crazy tripod thing that has one, two, three, four, five, like seven articulation points. So it could be like. Like this, like a claw to do it, but, like, it just looks like chaos behind my desk now.AndrewSo I'm still getting used to it, but I'm so excited. I did some test clips and my goal for this is to make content easy to create, which I've never been in. Like a consistent flow because it's like set up the camera, take down the camera, set.Jen You're going to start doing more video.AndrewMore video content like me, kind of talked about that people should do, like practice what you preach a little bit.BethWell, then send that setup my way!AndrewI will maybe know anything.Andrew$3,000 or so, but like it's been over the years. It's been over the years. We'll see. Is it worth it? I don't know. It kind of leads into my story time as far as like, is it worth it? Is it not worth it? So maybe we just I'll I'll go into story time. But first, let's get started. Welcome to episode 310.AndrewI am the self-proclaimed ad doctor with no formal education to call myself an ad doctor. And with me today is Beth Russell and Jenn the one and only barking woo! Who were here. Here. So, yeah, let's see. Yeah, I'm excited. I'll just continue with my story time. So content and trust is what is what I'm going for. So is it worth what I spent on my camera and equipment for content?AndrewFirst of all, I use it for other purposes. So and I've had it for a couple of years and over time I've built it up. So it wasn't like I just spent all this money on fancy camera and everything. Last night we were not in a mood to do any cooking, which really means I do. I do other cooking, make sure notes, listening.AndrewI do other cooking at the house. I'm like, I'm not cooking anything. I took Addy, our youngest, to Tumblr, and so I got home at like 7:30 a.m.. Like, it's getting late. Kids go to bed at eight because they're elementary and middle school. There we go. I'll order some food. So we went out to Uber Eats because I did not feel like driving.AndrewLike, Oh, let's try this little Greek place out that's like right around the corner. That's like my, my limit. Like, I want something close so the food is fresher, right?JenYeah. So does it take too long?AndrewYeah. And it's called you little. It's called Little Greek. I've never been there, but the reviews are good. But, like, you never know, Like, that could just be, like, friends, family. They're like, you know, guilted people into leaving reviews. So we get it. And every single thing is branded with their logo. Like, we got a First of all, how do you pronounce Giugiaro Euro?AndrewEuro?JenYeah, euro or.AndrewLike the euro, they're not really.JenAre Gyro.AndrewGyro.Jen003 is not right.AndrewIt's definitely regional. Right. But who knows. That's, that's funny. So that's what I ordered. That's what Lindsey ordered. Then we got some other things but it was the euro was wrapped in a branded like little. What's it like parchment paper, styrofoam. It came in branded the little wrap that goes around the napkins and forks branded. I'm like, Oh.AndrewSo immediately I'm like, I kind of trust these people already. I've never been to this place. Think about the opposite. What if it came in like a generic, the absolute cheapest to go container the cheapest paper, the cheapest. I'd be like, Ooh, with food. And maybe I'm weird with food safety, but I would have had this impression. Like, they probably cut corners somewhere.JenMm hmm. Yeah, they have attention to detail.AndrewIt's NATO.JenSo it's France.AndrewSuper important. All right, So I'm hoping quality, the better camera setup should give the impression that we, I, all of us, care just a little bit more. Yeah, because it's perfect. It's, you know, the audio is going to be ten out of ten the video, ten out ten all all these things. Is it necessary? I have no idea.AndrewProbably not, because we're not used to seeing every single person make content with a fancy set up. Usually it's phone, but you're good to go.JenThere is something to be said for there's some.AndrewSo like in Kevin if you're listening I'm request I'm just kidding.JenWell that there is I agree with you in that there's something to be said for the quality of the output starts with quality tools. Yeah you know I think about like my kids who are in sports and like my son coming to me saying, like, he needed, you know, for pitching. He needed the very best glove or the very best training weighted balls and I'd be like, whatever.JenHe's like, Yeah, but. And there's something with the perception of, Yeah, I'm investing in myself. And then the output of what I'm producing is going to be that much.AndrewThat I actually agreed. Maybe there's like a minimum threshold, so you don't need to go like all out, but like it needs to be like it hits this threshold where like, okay, everyone is like, all right, I trust it enough. So maybe the company last night, they didn't need everything to be branded, but maybe just like the wrap around the food, it's enough because I was colored.AndrewIt was like white and blue, which makes sense. Greek like it would be white and blue, but maybe not everything would have given the same feeling, but nothing certainly gives the opposite negative feeling. We're like, Ooh, like, I don't know, like, never been here before. It's not like they didn't didn't take that extra step. Maybe they're actually being lazy.AndrewSo it was a shock moment. I'm like, Oh, I just got like marketed.JenAnd I feel like I work out there when I, when I have like, the brand shoes on.AndrewYeah, I agree.BethWhatever it takes. The lemon versus the Amazon.AndrewOfficer.JenIf I had if I had Lululemon outfit Lululemon not Lily.AndrewYou're wearing like $600 worth of stuff AirPods.JenLike the, like the best workout.AndrewThis the best work.BethOf my life. I have a question. When you guys go places and they have those like fully branded items or like you go to a restaurant, they have those thick nice paper towels in the bathroom. Do you immediately go to like the dollar signs of how much all of that stuff costs? Because, you know, you know, like more than my money.AndrewI definitely think about that.BethI think about it all the time because I think like, okay, they've made so much money just buying the foam containers in bulk. Yeah. But to get the emblem or to get the stamp of their logo, the amount of money and time that they invest into doing that, I'm like, okay, they care and they're investing in it and they have the money, so they have to have the profit.BethSo they're making enough money, they're selling enough food, People must like them, boom.JenYep, Yeah, 100%.AndrewAnd maybe there's something like we feel like we it's like why apparel works for some companies and doesn't work for others. You buy apparel because it makes you feel like you belong to whatever that brand is. I think that I'm Mark at the summit. I forgot his last name from a thousand. What he talked about that was not not it was a Davidson Mark Super cool, dude.AndrewI think. Mark Right That's one the producer is I'm terrible last names but he's like you belong to this brand. Like why do you buy Nike versus New Balance Other There we go. Mark Davison Olivia's helping us out or why do you buy X, Y, Z bat versus another bat? Like I don't know, like you're part of the club type of deal.JenMy it's my husband won't only buy Nike. Yeah, it's like even to the point of like following certain sporting like athletes. Oh, they're under armor. Oh like they must not be that good. It's like.BethMaybe.JenA Nike branded athlete.AndrewI'm from Maryland, so your character's really sensitive about this.JenThis is I'm.AndrewNot sure what else is from Maryland.JenThis is not me. I'm saying. I'm saying my husband.BethI'm just giving.AndrewHim another Andrew.JenAnother Andrew?BethYeah, says Andrew's man.AndrewYeah, we got old Bay. We have. It's in there. It wasn't a cake show. And Maryland Cake.BethBoss. He was in Maryland. Yeah, he was.AndrewBoss Old Bay under armor and the Wire, I think was is. Oh, Cosmo.BethThanks for asking.AndrewYou're welcome. You're welcome. Okay. All done with my distractions. Beth or Jen, who wants to go next?BethWell, I have another story about details, if you will. So I'm going to coordinate.AndrewThis without even knowing.BethAnd we always end up doing this. Or we're just really good at transitions and we don't give ourselves enough credit. Maybe. Oh, but basically, I was having a conversation with someone in the industry yesterday working construction, and she was telling me why she left her previous builder and what was like the reason, like the catalyst to her just being like, okay, I'm done.BethAnd she was on site with one of her superiors, like I guess like an area construction manager type person. And I think she was the superintendent at the time essentially. And they were going through like their queue, so they were evaluating the home. And she pointed out some things and the the superiors response was, well, if they don't mention it, if they don't see it, then it's not actually a problem.BethAnd she was like.JenNope.BethI'm done. Like, I'm not going to be a part of this. This is not like I don't want my name attached to this type of builder or to this type of mindset. And I think it's just really interesting because it points to integrity, right? And the detail.JenOf what I was thinking.BethYeah.JenAnd like the definition of integrity.BethMhm. Exactly. And it's like she, she wasn't willing to compromise her integrity to be a part of it. And the details, the little small things that he didn't think were a big deal, they could eventually come back and bite you in the, in the years later. It could, it could cost the company a lot of money, It could cost the company their reputation.BethIt could cost him his job, her, her job, all of these things like you have to have integrity in your building, in your marketing, in your data collection, and how you do sales. Like if we lose our integrity, then there's a domino effect that could happen later on that could really cost us a lot more in the end.BethSo it was a cool little story and I was just like, Then you go, girl.AndrewYou go, you get it, you go, you get the A Who cares about that? Yeah. Especially on the home side. I mean, that's the product like we're building. Yeah, we're not I mean, I'm not building homes. She's building homes. You know, props to her. Like, that's the there will be someone living there 24 seven. Like they will find those things eventually.BethAnd I wish there were more people like her in in all areas. Right. Not just in construction but in in in marketing and sales and whatever. Because her response to it was, I don't want to be a part of the problem. I want to be a part of the solution. And if I can't make it better, then I don't want to be there and I or I don't want to be in this industry anymore.BethShe was like, I'll go like work at Chick-Fil-A, but you know, whatever it is, like, I feel like I'm making people happy.AndrewFor sure and not be on home. Inspectors tick tock reviewing like yet another. Have you all seen those yet another homebuilders? I'm being kind of like tick tock. The content goes viral because it's interesting. There's a story, there's tension. Right. That's more interesting than a perfectly made home. Right. Which one do you want to watch? The home that looks like it's falling over the one that's like, oh, like it's perfect.JenYeah. The train wreck.AndrewYeah. You're not sitting right? Yeah, the same. You're. What's that rubbernecking they're turning. They're like, okay, cool. You're like the accident essentially. So it's just it's just drama. What do you what do you got, Jenn?JenWell, I've got a lot to think about, but one thing that really stuck out that's super relevant right now is that I was talking with on a coaching call this week with an online sales specialist and we were looking at numbers and you know, just one thing to keep in mind, I think as we move into this next few months, you know, things are a little harder.JenPeople are looking at numbers and really scrutinizing everything. And so we were doing that together and just talking about lead to appointment specifically, hers had dropped from September to October.AndrewOkay?JenAnd I was like, okay, like, why do you think that is? And I was expecting she was going to say something like, Well, it's really harder right now. Like customers are being a little bit it's harder to get them to an appointment. That's what I was anticipating she was going to say. But what she said was she goes, I think it was me and I think it was my mindset.JenShe goes, I had kind of gone down this rabbit hole of watching a lot of media talk about interest rates and how the market is tough. And she said, I think that was affecting me and like I was projecting concerns I was having about the market on to the customers I was talking to. And so I sat back and I was like, that's really insightful of, of yourself, that you're self reflecting and you're realizing.JenAnd I said, Okay, this is what we're going to do. I said, Right now let's let's write down what are the pros of buying? Let's switch our brain. What are the pros of buying a new home right now? And so she start she was like, okay, she's like, you know, we have inventory. She's like, there's not a lot of other inventory on the market.JenAnd like, exactly. She's like, we have a warranty, we have a home warranty. It's a new home like. And I said, Exactly. I said to think about cost versus, you know, the cost of buying a new home versus the cost of a resale home where you might have a lot of other expenses that go into that. And she's like, Exactly.JenAnd I said, okay, what our. Oh, and I said, What else? She goes, Incentives. We have incentives. I said, Exactly.AndrewYeah, that's a good one.JenYeah. I said, You have incentives, you have a warranty. It's a brand new phone. You have inventory as it builders have, you know, the ability right now to provide those incentives that used homes don't have, you know, on the market. And so I said what are the cons? Okay, we've made our pros list, what are the cons? And she was like, well, I guess really the interest rate is the main thing.JenAnd I said, okay. And I said, But people don't buy interest rates, do they buy homes? So let's talk about how we can talk about that. And so we spent some time just kind of thinking about that. And really what it boils down to was the main thing is the affordability. You know, the affordability because in this particular online salespersons, market affordability is huge because there they sell to more entry level, you know, first time home buyers and that affordability is crucial.JenAnd so we spent some time talking about like for online sales specialist, they're not trying to convince somebody, you know, especially like a new home, a new first time buyer. It's like, I'm not going to sit there and try to convince them that it's affordable like that they should purchase. Right now is a good time to buy at an 8% interest rate and the affordability is going to be fine for them.JenBut what they need to focus on is let's do this, come out, take a look at how we build that way. When you're ready and you feel comfortable, you'll be able to determine if our builder is a good fit for you or not. And so I think online sales just has to have that perspective shift of there. So hung up on like, I got to get I got to sell, I got to get this person thinking that now they should buy when really let's just get them thinking about coming in and taking a look at our homes because hopefully they'll come in, they'll fall in love, they'll meet with that salesperson that's on site thatJencan show them how cost changes, what incentives they could work with to kind of help them to be more affordable. And so it was a really good exercise to kind of go through that. But how powerful I mean, what you guys agree like that mindset of like if you're sitting there thinking like, yeah, like doom and gloom that's going to project on to the people you're talking to.BethAbsolutely.AndrewYeah. Yeah. I think I just wrote this down. My brain is like getting excited from from everything you're saying I wrote. Is affordability an objection or is that just a reduction of market size? So that's like semantics, like objection being like, well, you know, like you guys have nine foot ceilings, they have ten foot ceilings. To me, that's objection.AndrewI'm not even in sales training, so tell me I'm wrong like all day long versus affordability is like if you cannot afford the home like it, that doesn't there is no objection. I guess you're not in market.JenBecause you feel like it's really an objection. It's not like.AndrewYou know, like work your finances a bit like, you know, like we like for this person, we have no debt. Our income is as such, like, here's what we qualify for. It's not that's not an objection. Like, you can't even think about it. But the objection is like to me, there's choice for an objection. So they're on the phone and they already been maybe they haven't been pre-qualified.AndrewThey're just brand new. Yeah, get them excited. Like, Hey, come on out like that. So much fun. Like, come see our communities talking to people we know. Just, you know, Halloween was, what, two days ago? Our Halloween experience with our kiddos compared to our friends who live in where we're at. Like we have very few new home communities Pinellas County, Saint Pete, Clearwater, like west of west of Tampa, very few new home communities.AndrewOur kids Halloween experience, I can guarantee, is 100 times better than those who live in a, quote, traditional community. That's like where it's just like sixth Avenue, 17th Avenue, whatever it is. And like for like there's no one doing like trick or treating. I'm like, Oh, come 2 hours, we got 70 houses, everyone is out, end of their driveway.AndrewYou don't have to knock on the door. Candy, candy, candy, candy. And we're used to it. And so it's fun. Or they go to I'll go to One Tree Oaks, which is they older, established community, one entrance in one instance out. So they're all going to these places that are communities like, wouldn't you want to live in a place like this?AndrewLike there's 20 kids on the block, like all these things that are if they can't afford it, like it makes them move like, okay, so we're $400 more per month or whatever it is. Like that's a lifestyle upgrade. But for a good reason. If you have kids, if you could even have that discussion. But there's there's more than just the numbers.AndrewI think people forget like there's more than just the dollar amount, like there's the value of community and and being around people. If you have kiddos or if you don't like.JenRight.AndrewGoing somewhere where like it's active.JenSo exactly So to that point it you know online sales can't you have to be careful about getting hung up on their job is to engage and to get somebody excited about the possibility of buying or building not to sell the home over the phone. That's legal for the salesperson. Leave that for the people that are trained to do that out on site.JenJust get them excited, have them think about what it would be like to live there, to trick or treat there in that community and get them out for informational sessions. You know, we I've said this like 20,000 times. We'll get the word appointment out of your your words, your vocabulary and start talking about we'd love to host you for a discovery tour.JenWe'd love to host you for an informational session and I'll be sure to let everybody know that you are just in the beginning stages of looking. They come out sales, get them excited. We see how they could be living in the home. And that's that's the shift. That's the mental shift that has to happen.BethYeah. And I think in any rocky market situation or when, you know, these doom and gloom conversations are kind of or thoughts are looming either in your brain or the people that you're talking to whose brain remember one core thing and they're calling you for a reason exactly how they get on the website.JenAll the interest rates.BethYeah, they had to be. They called.JenYou.BethYeah, exactly. And if you just remember that, it can help you get in that mindset of like, okay, they're calling me for a reason. They're interested in this market. Let's let's have a party, let's talk, let's make it fun and try to drag it out.AndrewYeah, I think pick up, pick up Starbucks on the way, like something out a little bit. Like I don't know if like to meet us would be a thing. And if you do this because it is the person's schedule. But like, if I don't have have kiddos like hey, I come by at 430 today or like schedule an appointment or like the kids are out.AndrewLike if you happen to be that familiar with like the schedule like and then they pull up in the street and they see like kids running around hours. I feel like most of our street, like we raise our kids like free, free range chickens. Like it's like, let them roam around, it's gated, they're out and everyone's got ring cameras all over the place.AndrewThere's usually like two or three parents out doing something in their yard and 15, 20 kids out. Now, if they're an older person with no kids and they don't want that, that'd be a terrible idea.JenDon't send them out to get. It's the.AndrewMinistry. No. Oh, goodness. What fun. Yeah, you're just kidding. Just getting them excited. Yeah. Yeah. Know any other stories? When you talk about anything else happen at all? Not on my end.JenWell, listen to. I could tell. I could tell you, Andrew, that today that we presented to our online sales academy.AndrewI love it.JenAnd I had fun presenting to our online sales Academy was because we wanted to do a session like a marketing 1 to 1 session for online sales.AndrewOkay.JenYou know, just yeah, that's needed. We well, we talked to all and I said, well, it's time. Like your job is to quantify what's happening. And like that said, well we were talking about earlier somebody is like yeah, I didn't really understand what that meant. Like, I hear like how important this is, but what does that even mean?JenSo like, but what? Yeah, I think everybody what you.BethI think it was really powerful. The conversation that you're referencing, Jen, is that she was like, I heard when I took this position that I would have to own my data and I'd have to I'd have to know my numbers, but I didn't know what that meant or the impact of actually doing that. And so what we did was painting a picture alongside Jesy and Amanda of what that meant from an organizational standpoint, going back to integrity, how important those numbers are and this like vital position that the online sales people have within maintaining that flow of the funnel and the kind of feedback and data and information and collaboration that can happen between marketingBethand online sales. And I think that's kind of where do you convert was routed from is that relationship between marketing, marketing and online sales? Because I feel like oftentimes we're seeing that marketing feels like a silo. They feel undervalued, unappreciated and like it's not as invested in. And then online sales can oftentimes feel the same where like, you know, sales gets all the glory and they're the ones writing the contracts and people aren't really sure what it is that they do or what it really means.BethAnd they feel like they can have more of an impact. And so we kind of talked through that and how the two departments can lean on one another and work together and find solace in the two of them collaborating and and and celebrating one another. So it was really fun. It was really, really.AndrewSound so positive.JenWell, you know.AndrewWhat? I'm stealing someone. Jen, Jesse, Amanda. For the marketer of marketing Academy sales.JenYes, Yes. Boom.AndrewAnd Beth, is Beth also do something like that. Gives me like 2 hours. So I eat some food, take a little break to the academy because we're like 16 hours of talk.JenAnd I share something that is very relevant.AndrewThis my horoscope.JenConversation would say, Yeah, listen to this Gemini. Every week I pull one of these random cards out. Okay, you guys notice I.AndrewNeed to know what it says.JenAnd, well, I'm going to read it to you. So this week's card is collaboration. Oh, okay. Let me read to you what it says. I take pride in my role as a good collaborator and look for opportunities to help support my colleagues ideas rather than dismiss them outright. I fill my meetings with yeses and ends and I celebrate the constructive power they have over Butz and or else, unless I work for a company that makes cigarets and boats, in which case bucks and orders would be Oh, never mind.JenOkay.AndrewThat's hilarious. I know why this reminds me of Elaine of Money Garment. I don't know why. It just seems like something she'd say so positively.JenYeah, Collaboration. I like it. But, you know, when Beth was talking, did you notice? And she was like.BethShe's dancing. I do it when I like to. Yeah, when things make me happy. I just like.AndrewChick-Fil-A and I get Chick fil A's sauce.JenSweet tea, you know?BethNo, no, sweetie.JenA collaboration between online sales, onsite sales, marketing. You know, it's an ecosystem. They all need to be collaborating, working together, and even just within teams, you know, collaborating like us, you know, like we collaborate, you know, we could easily live in our own silos between sales and online, I mean, marketing and online sales and whatever. But magic happens when you collaborate.AndrewThe magic.JenI love magical collaboration. Good.AndrewYeah, that's it for today. I'm just kidding. That's not it for today.JenAnd we are out.AndrewAnd on to the news. Here's a fun one. I'll let Jen take this first one I wrote a blog.BethPost.AndrewReady for. I'm just kidding. Wow. This is collaboration, in effect. No, we don't have to do that.JenDid you see.BethThat? I shared these and shared it.AndrewYou commented on a link and it was awesome.JenI read it.AndrewIt's good.JenI read it.AndrewAnd that's perfect collaboration. You at it? Did you.BethSee? No, that's not Gatorade, right.JenThat's my joke for. Oh, it's not is it is.AndrewG for the Gatorade? Is that you for something?JenSounds like it should be Gatorade. That's why I'm good. It's not Gatorade.AndrewAs a perfect blend of I.JenWill Electrolytes explain it. I read it, though, and I said that I am happy that you are on this team and that you can share these very insightful things with the world, very insightful.AndrewIt's very exciting to explain it. It's actually the opposite of exciting. It's yet another thing that Google has done to make G4 just a little more challenging. So for everyone listening previously in Universal Analytics, you can change the default channel grouping settings. So we're bringing all this data. We want to put it in nice organized buckets. You could change those settings with the default group of those buckets, channels and J for you can't do that.AndrewYou have to duplicate the default channel groupings and then you have your own custom one, whatever you want to call it, device C channel groupings like make it, make it a cool name or or best channel groupings. You know, put your, put your stamp on it and then you could change things. So it's like this extra step you have to do.AndrewIt's really not that big a deal. But for most of us you do have to change it a bit, especially if you previously had like a syndication channel. Now that's going to what they're calling unassigned. And ideally unassigned is as little as possible. We've seen some builders, it just explodes because they either have a misspelling in there and they're UTMB or there's something technical going on that like the data is not being interpreted correctly from Google Analytics.AndrewSo we need to own our data, We need to know our data, We need to be familiar and best friends with it. So if you're seen on a sign, essentially the symptom is if you see unassigned as a very big traffic source, chances are you need to check this article out and make the changes. Super quick and easy.AndrewI'd say 5 to 20 minutes depending on experience to get it done. Not a big deal.JenNot typical. So that's sometimes you have to do those things though, which was.AndrewYou know, kind.JenOf make it like you've got it. Yeah, you've got to sit down and focus on some, put on sprinkling some rap music and yes.AndrewSally Who? Kendrick Lamar. Yeah. Who else should we put on sexy record.JenLike, okay, so I'm like, you know, Notorious Tupac.AndrewOh, Tupac. There we go.JenOh, yeah. Dr. Dre. Snoop Dogg.AndrewYeah. Eminem. He's not old school, actually. You think about it like, Oh, we're.BethOld.AndrewAndrew is getting a little aged, but all the young kids still like him. All these young'uns, you know, who knows who knows? Well, let's go on to the next one. Beth, you won't take this one. It's about big money from the White House.BethBig money. White House.AndrewStar.BethOpens $45 billion in federal funds to developers to convert offices to homes. So essentially what's going on is they are helping fund all of these offices that have at least 25% vacancy rate and providing some funds to developers and incentives to developers to convert said vacant offices into affordable, affordable renting homes for people. So that way, part of it is also like trying to keep the housing area local to where people are working.BethAnd so there's less fuel emissions and less commutes and, you know, things going on there. So there's some added benefits. But I'm curious of what you all think about this, because I fear, like what happens in like ten years.AndrewYeah.BethWhere how affordable are they is going to be? Are they going to maintain that affordability?AndrewYeah, I think that's terrible.JenI need to think about ten years from now.AndrewI don't know, ten years, ten years now we'll have a population issue. Like there's not enough.JenLike I mean, when I first read this article.AndrewB 44 so I'm good.JenAndrew. Andrew might be thinking about empty nesting and moving into one of these years.AndrewLet's see, our oldest will be 21. So there's that, our youngest will be 16.JenI don't know that when I, when I first read this, I thought it was positive, but I was I was thinking like one affordability. And I was also thinking about that. I have two young adults who are going to be wanting to move out on their own here soon. And I had recently visited DC when I was staying.JenI was in Georgetown and I was like, my son was born I thought was beautiful. Such a fun, cool place to live, but it's so expensive. Yep. And I was thinking, like, how cool it would be if I was a 20 something, you know, just out of college, young, professional. And I wanted to live in a Georgetown like area.JenAnd I saw this article and I was thinking, Oh, that would be really cool. MM So I was looking at it from that perspective.BethNo, I totally agree. And I think it's, it kind of circles back to what I did in Silver Spring, Maryland.JenWhere. Yes.BethYeah. Where they're taking their instead of doing X percentage for affordable housing or what is it called Section eight housing, they're expanding it a little bit further. And so they're making it like based off of the income that the person makes. And so there's more people that can afford to live there. So I think it depends on how it's defined and making sure that it's regulated in some sense.BethBut I do agree that it's a it's creative because having lived in the D.C. area, having lived in in other city, big cities, there are so many office buildings and office space that's just not being.JenVacant.BethSitting vacant. Yeah, not being used. And then also you have like the only things that are coming up are high end condos or high end townhomes that are harder to afford as a young couple. So I think there's a lot of value there. I'm curious to see how it goes. And I just hope that the the greedy developers at the top aren't taking advantage of it, but they do good things like, like why I.JenDid. Yeah.AndrewSo I'll be the counterargument just to be the counterargument. I think it's a terrible I think it's a terrible idea. And I'm more so because of, well, can we have housing in that building based off of regulation, city, county, whatever. Like, well, that's a nightmare. Like, are we going to spend more, let's say like to build a brand new low square footage, one one, two, one, two, two.AndrewWhatever set up that is affordable. Is that actually cheaper than retrofitting a I'm just thinking like, what's the last big office I was in like couple of weeks ago? Like there's one bathroom down the hallway. Yeah. And now we need to have plumbing for, Oh, you.JenHave a bathroom?AndrewLike, is that how is it.BethYeah.AndrewEach unit based off of like, All right, the toilets here, we need X amount inches for this. Is this, is this why we need windows? We need what about fire? What about all these other things that are not typical at all for commercial compared to residential? What do we need to change this? I'm like, Oh, to use like what actually actually cost.JenMore land to build those types of things in less in a big city unless you convert.AndrewThat is true, but it's I guess I'm thinking if it's not worth the developer's money to retrofit remix their current vacancies, like they're not willing to invest it themselves, is this even enough money to make it profitable?BethYeah, I think this is like a losing game.AndrewLike the government started money at it and they're spending 300 K for something that will cost 200 K or I'll bring it like it's a negative r y that way, that way that's the reason I was doing it. Maybe. I don't know. I'm sure it's circumstances building to building, it's location to location, but like, oh geez, like should have could have this been a we're actually sending 45 billion to build homes that have to be in this price range.AndrewSo they'll be outside they won't be downtown like I compared us to to the UK. I think I had like 25% vacancy versus 8% in Europe. I've never been to Europe. So hear me out on this neither. But transit and all those things are significantly better and you're closer. So maybe 8% is not because there's anything wrong with our commercial property, but like it's all these other factors that make their vacancy lower.AndrewThey would have been better too. I'm thinking about like some of the products that some of the builders are coming out with that are like six to like 1100 square feet, much smaller. Like how many more homes can they build for that that are truly affordable, That won't be rentals, that will build equity over time for people that are that would be long term renters, and then their lives are actually improved because they're building equity over five, ten years.BethYeah, Yeah. I think.AndrewMaybe they're doing.JenIt depends on them. I think it depends on the market, the town. Yeah, the.AndrewGreed.JenThe vetting like.BethBut yeah, there's a lot of questions that need to be answered to make this truly successful and impactful. So I think that's where it's like, it sounds great.JenSo yeah, like, yeah, I think a.AndrewBig be place a bet on this and be like, okay, what's the you probably walk by Jen when you're in DC, What is the government group that like essentially audits the government itself, you know, like I forget the name of it, but like tenure. So now when this is done, they'll be like, well, we spent 45 billion, 22 billion was fraud because you just apply for this like the, like the payroll tax and loans, like all these people abusing the program.AndrewLike, hmm, this kind of has the potential for that like years of money grab here's this and then the timelines on it. I'm just being so I took the negative approach on this one.JenLike I like it when.AndrewI was in it.JenNo, no, no.AndrewInteresting. Who knows? We'll find out. I don't even know if this is approved or if it's just an idea that they're pushed through. We'll find out. Well, interesting.JenYeah. Push on Friday to.AndrewHelp on a to me, a definite positive is the one from the truth about mortgage dot com. So that's that's a fun site there but there's this lender and which city where they end.JenEssentially they're going out.AndrewThere Yeah and Glenville New York based trust Co bank has come up with a novel concept to get homeowners moving again literally so they're essentially splitting the mortgage rate if you have a 3% rate and then you are approved for 7% for a meeting in the middle and that's your new mortgage rate. So they're trying to get do you have to have the mortgage already with them?AndrewYes, I think you do. So So this is a very limited.BethPool, a very limited group.AndrewYou're trading you're good rate because they don't make any money on it, sort of lower yield, lower return. And they are swapping it for a higher one. They kind of leave out, though, to shoot holes in their data. They didn't talk about the higher cost of the home. So you bought the home at 400 K at 3%. Your new home you want to move up to is now 655 and a half.AndrewSo like, I don't know, big difference. I think if you have to move in you're able to finance with them like this is a great thing.JenBut I like their their image on the the article blowout sale plans. I mean that's that's a fun 20 to 50% off.AndrewI mean yeah, kind of 50% off each in the middle.BethI think it's creative and I think they're kind of taking a page on a builder's, you know, out of our books, know what we're doing. But like you said, it's extremely limited. And I think what it would be more interesting to me if they were able to do that for people who are relocating. So like if a big national team could do this or like people who actually sell their mortgages and you never know who your mortgage is going to because that they talked about that like they actually hold on to their mortgage, they don't sell them all.BethSo like it would have been lovely if we could have maybe sold a house and then gotten a lower rate than what we did because we had to move. We didn't have an option. So I think it's interesting. There's some legs there. I'm curious to see if other people follow suit or if this is if this is just a one and done type scenario, especially.AndrewRegarding like we refiled with rocket mortgage because they were like amazing salespeople, like ten out of ten they cost me like Tinsley is 20, 20, 21. Like we closed in 2021. I was yeah, we bought our home in 28. So we went from like four down to we're one of the people on here that would like, why would we ever get rid of our mortgage right by Rocket has the they came out with a 1% payment plan product which is pretty cool.AndrewAnd then you get a grant. So I like Rocket's approach because then it's for almost anybody. But it'd be interesting if Rocket follow suit because they're the whole nation they have a lot of people like, Hey Andrew, I get an email from them considering moving well we'll meet in the middle. Rates are at seven but you could be at here and that affects a lot of people.AndrewSo I mean.JenI really do. It makes me excited that people are continue going to try to get creative on how to make it more affordable to buy a home like that. And positive.BethDefinitely. And I think from a consumer standpoint, it tells us that, like, things aren't always black and white and they seem like there is some great of things that can occur right behind the scenes that we just aren't used to or don't know about because we're not like well versed in this, which I think ties into the next article.BethThe next why I want my popcorn. It's been a very interesting week in the real estate world.AndrewOh yeah, it's been fun. What's interesting is it's not really mainstream as far as like I call my dad about it. He's an attorney. So I guess first let's talk about what we're talking about. So this is from housing Viacom, although you could go almost anywhere and just type in Missouri and air losses and it pulls up everything.AndrewBut brokers prepare for changes after the Spitzer slash burn it commission lawsuit verdict. Well, that's that's a lot. Who wants to explain this? Probably better than I can.BethThere's two parts of this lawsuit that I think are digestible to people. Right? There we go. There's the one side that is saying like, hey, 6% is isn't a standard. It's not a requirement. Right. But we have been told within the industry and consumers have been told that 6% is the standard and the required amount.JenIt's like the wait, what's that Mandela fact like, where are you just there's been something in existence that you just Yeah.BethLike the chef's.AndrewLike he's like 20% to buy a house. A lot of people think you need to.BethSent down exactly.JenLike this is you don't need to wait this is the standard when that was never really.BethThere's nothing. I mean, down in LA they would have to pay 6%.JenYeah.AndrewOr like even use a real estate agent or realtor the realtors, the registered name with NPR.JenNow, you know, I was a I was a realtor. I worked for a brokerage. Yeah, but that was what was always it's just like that always existed. Like that was the.BethSo everyone believed it to be true. So that's one side. And then the other side, which is the meat of this lawsuit in general, is the fact that sellers were paying buyer agent commissions. So they were essentially their argument was that like we are paying for someone to negotiate against us. And so one of the verdict or one of the plaintiffs I'm sorry, her situation that she laid out was like we said, we're paying 6%.BethRight. But when all was said and done in our actual net, whatever might be our net profit, there we go, our net profits that we made from the sale of our home, it was actually 20% that went to agents commissions, and half of which is, you know, I think that in that instance it might have been actually to specifically the buyer.BethBut it's it's crazy because they were just like that. We shouldn't have to pay like they are choosing to use this realtor. They picked their realtor. The realtor works for them, not for us, and we are paying them. So those two side things, which then, you know, is a domino effect of other lawsuits now are happening and they've already filed another one.BethThe plaintiff attorney has already filed another one. And then you have the things that's happening that we talked about before with like Redfin saying we're not going to pay by our don't commission all the stuff.AndrewOh, yeah. So they're are found guilty of collusion. And there's all these things, you know, collusion being let me have the definition secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy in order to cheat or deceive others. So that sounds so that's.JenSuch a.AndrewGuilty word, right?JenSo you're like, I'm blowing when you actually stop and think about this for a second, like, yeah, what you were just saying. But as like, if I'm listing my house and I'm paying a 6% fee, yeah, half of that is going to pay for the buyer's agent, which you're right is negotiate is the I'm paying somebody to negotiate against me or like represent somebody else in this transaction like at a lower price I think about.JenYeah, like, that's crazy. But like literally have never I will admit I have never thought about it in that way.BethQuestioned it because it's just been part of the process. Right.JenYeah, I.AndrewThink I think for you're watching like The Sopranos or, or one of those shows and like you put in the accents of these like Italian guys, it's like, Hey, you want to sell your house? Okay, cool, cool, cool. Here's what's going to work. And you put I'm not going to try to mimic the accents, but like the guys coming up to you and he's like, Please do it.AndrewDon't do it. Like, you know, if you like, know not to do it. What's funny is, like Carson, our oldest, his best friend, parents Dad is from Sicily, and as his crazy accent is hilarious, but you, they would be like, Hey, you pay me where it's like 6%, 3%, You know, half of that money. Go to this guy over here.AndrewYou're like, way, way like, I'm paying Like that guy hates me. He's trying to steal my washer and dryer and, like, the appliances and, like, all this other stuff, and they want to take it down $50,000 on the price I'm gonna pay that guy. Yeah. Yeah. That's just how it works. You know, if you don't do it, we're not going to sell your home.AndrewWe're not done talking about your home rather than a list. Your home. Actually, you can't even list your home because you have to put in something on the MLS. I think that's so there's all this evidence that's like, like, supports this collusion and you're like, wow. But the verdict was 1.35 million just for the Missouri case, which was which 100 something thousand homes.AndrewNow, I don't know where this money coming from or who goes to, but that was just Missouri. You should add $2 billion for all the other states. Is there like over $1,000,000,000,000 in like money that could be a verdict potentially? I have no idea. I don't.JenKnow. Pull your power.AndrewPlay popcorn out.BethBut I got my Taylor Swift popcorn yet.AndrewThe notorious robber now at the summit and he talked about this in depth if you want like I think he's the best with following all this in the details. That's great. Robert Hahn Yeah superintelligent he does have I don't say bias because that sounds accusatory, but he is building a product that has the that's like the solution. After all, this settles right.AndrewSo there is you know, there is that there but I still think everything is saying seems very even in it's it's factual and he's referencing links and it's it's really one of the.BethFirst people to really put it out there like.AndrewYeah, he blew it.BethAnd he's been in this supermarket a long time and has worked alongside MLS for a long time. So it's really fascinating.JenTotally.AndrewYeah, it's going to be really interesting. But most people I know about, I touch my I as I started to talk to my dad, he's an attorney.JenAnd.AndrewSo he and I'm like, Have you seen this case? He's like, No, tell me about it. He's like, Hmm.JenI'm going to call some of my interesting my old friends.AndrewLike, how do you feel about this? Of course, realtors, like, like, I just assume they're like, this is garbage. It's, you know, a bunch of what I hope.JenI'm going to find out. I'm going to all my peoples and report back.AndrewFor a change.BethTo need to talk to some of my friends that are realtors. Because, like, it's not that realtors are bad people or sketchy people. If you saw the market, it's a it's just been the it in.JenThe.BethWay exactly It's been like no way. This is the way agents sometimes are working harder than some of the seller agents Oh percent of cases. And so like there are handling a lot of are people.JenAround and see and homes.BethAnd the reality is and the other solution is that it comes out of pocket of the buyer which makes affordability even harder because now they have to pay agent commissions or agent rate that they never had to pay before, would they. And would they.AndrewAnd could they finance that? Yeah, not finance it. It's really like part of it's like the money's never really seen. And I think that's how it's worked for so long. I guess that's how the money comes out of here. And the buyer is like, okay, cool. But if you're like, Hey, for me to buy this home with with you, I negotiate.AndrewHere's here's a value I provide, It's going to be $6,000 and I want you paid initial fee now 2000. And then once we put a contract on home, another 2000, then once we close, that's another 2000. If you don't pay, there's a lean against your home and I could foreclose against you. Right. Wouldn't that be. I think that's how it works.AndrewWouldn't it be like that's my God. It's like if you have a roof, they put it in and you get your home until like the balance is paid or any major house house project. And you go, Well, well, and I have to pay cash. Like I, I have 6000 from a down payment or 16 or 60 like have to take some of that away to pay you.AndrewWhat if I don't use a buyer's agent. Well, like.BethMan.AndrewThat's. Yeah, get the popcorn out. That is definitely the popcorn.BethThis has been a great prop for today's call.AndrewWhat kind of popcorn? By the way, did you make it yourself?BethI'm so with my favorite popcorn, I'm boring. So I did, like. I know. I'm sorry. I'm really boring. I don't like overly butter or, like, overly salty, so like I do. I don't remember which brand it is, but it's like the natural one. Just like natural.JenYeah.BethOriginal or whatever. I don't know. It's a brown box.AndrewI like the purple bag. Which one is that one? Boom chicka pop.BethOh, my. Like if I.JenHad to pick a pop cause.BethIt's not pre pop I popped it.AndrewBoom chick. What is that. What is the popcorn. I need to know. People are like this time.BethYou're right.AndrewYeah. Boom chicka pop and salty kettle kettle corn. It's like four bucks. But once you open the bag and it like the whole thing right there.BethYeah. Especially kettle corn because it could lose its crisp like it's like.AndrewSo it's an air fryer just getting don't do that. Sounds like a terrible idea. Well that's it for the news this week current favorites and or your least favorite what you hate. Hate is a strong word but I really, really really don't like it. Whatever it may be.BethI'm going to be nice today. I'm not going to go negative. I'm going to stay positive.AndrewOkay.BethAnd stay along me eating one second.AndrewThat's a sweet cut, by the way, To the top right there.BethTaylor. Yeah, I got to go with my Taylor Swift Cup. I took my daughter to see it, but yeah, I'm eating all the candy. So we talked today on the on our marketing call, our internal marketing call about how good the Reese's Take five candies are. Like, I'm not a chocolate person. I usually go towards the fruity stuff like a starburst or some Skittles.BethOh yeah. Like those are jam.AndrewPut us together.BethOh lovely. It's like a party, But I am upset. They're like, crack the reasons take five they're so good and I can't stop eating them so well.JenOne of my favorite things was seeing your pictures of your family Halloween costumes. We were on point.AndrewYou were hook. Your family was hook themed.JenWith the pretty legit Think you're.AndrewNext year I need a I'll make them I'll do a theme so.JenAll guys need it yeah Andrew I want to get like.AndrewThat and like, I'll.JenJust address my dogs.

Like, if you saw the video I post on Instagram, Kellan was like, fighting my like, my name.00:51:34:18 - 00:51:35:23JenWas so cute.BethMike had, like, sweet eyebrow. I drew eyebrows on him. I mean, it was you guys got to check out. Maybe we'll put a picture in.AndrewSo take five, take five. Reese's. I swear I've had one of those. But then they had a while other, like we're putting pretzels in here in the Reese's.JenWe're putting those.AndrewChips in here that will that one's like it's own separate thing versus irises with like one extra ingredient, you know?BethI gotcha. No.JenYeah, Yeah. My favorite thing, I'm going to be that person today. Starbucks has their holiday drinks.BethOh, would you get.JenThe premium mocha? Okay, my favorite holiday. Interesting.

I wish they would make these caffeine free is my wish. I think they're missing out on a market or having like a low calf.00:52:56:20 - 00:53:12:11AndrewThis is only like 160 or 140 milligrams for this one flavor. So here's the thing. I was just thinking about how dumb someone is. That monster. Monster. You're dumb. What flavors as I've been drinking this on the podcast.00:53:12:13 - 00:53:15:06JenIt looks like some kind of great it's part.AndrewWhy is the logo not this way for when I drink it and you see it like what it is? Oh, right. Why are they. Why am I looking at the little bit you see like the nutrition facts and like the warning label do not exceed more than five of these a day or something like that. They Yeah, the purple, the ultraviolet, ten out of ten and anything great flavor has been been great but I'll go the candy theme as far as my true favorite the I think is very very the purple bag of Skittles.JenOmega.AndrewMixed with Starburst. Take a starburst Skittles in the middle, Another stronger together.JenOh, okay.AndrewThat's the party in your mouth right there.BethThat is really good. I know it's weird. Is that Starburst? Starburst came out with their, like, Starburst minis, which are basically like, cut down smaller. They're not good.AndrewThey're not good. It's wrong.BethI don't know. They taste like waxy. I don't know what it is.AndrewThere's less moisture in it, if that's even a word. They're less moist, like they're.JenActually dry. Oh, how I feel about that word.AndrewDon't say that word.

On this week's special episode of the BFG Podcast, host Neal Pollack indulges his nerdy childhood fantasy of hosting a Siskel and Ebert-like movie review show. Frequent contributor Stephen Garrett joins Neal to review four new, or relatively new, movies. The only thing that's missing from the equation is disagreement and mutually despising each other, but that will come in time!First up, Neal and Stephen review 'Priscilla,' the excellent new film from director Sofia Coppola about the young woman who found herself trapped in a strange marriage to Elvis Presley. They both found it a little sleepy, but also quite affecting, and they both praise Jacob Elordi, who steals the show as The King even though the movie isn't really about him. Another excellent dissection of celebrity from Coppola, who knows her way around the topic.Their next movie is The Killer, a gorgeously-crafted, pretentious bore from director David Fincher. Stephen found the story unrealistic and ridiculous. Neal hated the screenplay and the overbearingly pretentious narration. There are some great set pieces and meticulously crafted images, but nothing can save the movie's "scriptboner," as Neal calls it. A minor work from a director who seems to be descending a little bit into self-parody.After that comes this year's Cannes-award-winning film Anatomy of a Fall. Stephen admires the subtlety and ambiguity of the murder-mystery script. Neal likes the child and dog performances. Neither of them think "she did it" but neither of them is exactly sure. It's the perfect art film for the NPR-tote-bag-loving person in your life, 'Gone Girl' for subscribers to The New Yorker. Our critics say go have a sophisticated night at the cinema.Or watch Fair Play on Netflix. This nasty, wicked, fun erotic Wall Street thriller from Chloe Domont won raves at the festivals and is kind of sitting around on the back of the platform, not doing much. But it's an effective David Mamet-style morality play about sex and violence and hedge funds, and a perfect capper to a perfect episode.Neal has fulfilled his Siskel and Ebert dreams! Give them a listen.
During Climate Week in New York City, our hosts David and Indrani had the chance to talk to award-winning journalist and best-selling author David Ewing Ducan to discuss the launch of his new book "The Voyage Of The Sorcerer II". Frequent contributor to Vanity Fair, Wired, MIT Technology Review, The New York Times, Atlantic, and others, David is a former commentator for NPR's Morning Edition, and a special correspondent and producer for ABC's Nightline. In his new book, an epic science and adventure story of famed geneticist Craig Venter's voyages from 2003-2018 in a 100-foot sailing and research vessel that collected microbes all over the world, David reflects on how we view this tiny, invisible world. Tune in!EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS13:38 The microbiomes of the oceans especially, we are drowning them in carbon right now. There is something called phytoplankton that lives on the surface of the ocean, they are bacteria, algae etc. They produce 60 to 80% of the oxygen that we breathe in the atmosphere. And we are drowning them in carbon and changing that balance. 20:42 Every discovery is kind of neutral until used. Take the discovery of fire, I am sure at that time there were pro-fire and anti-fire people; you could choose to cook and nourish your body or destroy. This is a key aspect to the evolution of our species. 28:31 Back in the 50s when they came up with the term 'artificial intelligence', AI - a lot of people saw it as 'augmented intelligence'. I prefer the idea of augmented intelligence. There are a lot of things that machines can do better than we will ever do, but there are also things humans do better than any machine.

The team discusses marketing blunders that, despite going through many hands, still lead to a miss… or fatality. They stress the importance of doing marketing research beforehand for the success of a new community and how the littlest detail can make the most impact. Together they agree you should NOT focus only on one metric but do your own research and find other metrics as well as look into the numbers yourself.Story Time (02:48)Andrew brings up the story of someone dying from drinking too much caffeine from the Panera Bread supercharged lemonade.Beth shares what toilet paper holders can teach us.Julie asks the group “How is a coming soon community in a new market different than a coming soon community in existing market?”The News (22:00)Nearly 70% of prospective buyers would buy a haunted house if it checked all their boxes (https://zillow.mediaroom.com/2023-10-24-Nearly-70-of-prospective-buyers-would-buy-a-haunted-house-if-it-checked-all-their-boxes)There's Never Been a Worse Time to Buy Instead of Rent (https://www.wsj.com/economy/housing/theres-never-been-a-worse-time-to-buy-instead-of-rent) Things We Love Things We Hate (37:13)Beth is excited because her family is dressing up as characters from Hook (1991)!Julie watched the comedy special by Nate Bargatze on Amazon Prime and enjoyed it.Andrew's favorite is comedian Shane Gillis!Questions?

We're here to help you – not to sell you!Transcript:AndrewHere we go. So we've just been talking about accents. I had to add, you know, I had to be at a funeral last weekend. That's not a good start to a podcast.BethLike there's no real breaking ground.AndrewBut so my family on my dad's side, South Carolina and Tennessee. So I told my wife, You're lucky that, like you met me down here in Florida where we're kind of somewhat accent neutral, I would say, compared to say if you're in Louisiana, there might be a little bit of Creole or French influence. Right. But South Carolina, like so Alabama right there, that's like the typical Southern accent.AndrewAnd it's real.BethNice. It's a slow.AndrewSlow. Right. But South Carolina, I cannot figure them out. And they're my relatives. I'm like, I don't know. And some of them, like it's real heavy. And I don't know what you just said, Uncle John. I have no idea. I'm thinking that to myself. I'm not saying this out loud. I'm like, I don't know what he just said.AndrewAnd then my Oh, let's see. My grandmother would be early nineties, one of her friends from when she was like eight years old showed up to the funeral. Crazy like so in this little tiny town, she's like, Well, I knew Betty Jean and I used to live right around the corner and like, corner, like, it's so much fun.AndrewYou know, we're we're great. We're like a melting pot of accents around here, aren't we? United States for a lot of What a fun thing. Well, should we get started? I'm just going. Anyone have any other input? Input on accents?BethLike you already made fun of the way I talk. So, I mean.AndrewLet's see, Beth says bagel.BethBut I think it's a bagel.AndrewThere's a little bit. There's like a lift in there.BethSome bagel.AndrewBagel. There's like a B bagel, like titans or something.BethHow do you what do you what do you call the item that a child colors with that's made out of wax crayon?JulieWhat are you.AndrewReal in crayon? What do you say?BethIt's crayon. Crayon, like Crayola crayons.JulieCrayon syllables.AndrewIs that.JulieCrayon?AndrewIt's crazy. I am from South Carolina. What's happening hereBethNASA crayon.AndrewApple crayon. Right. I need something out there. This is so funny. What up? What else do I say? That's not correct. And this world.BethWorse than my bagelAndrewCrayon green. Oh, my goodness. We need to get started. We're getting. We're getting distracted here. You know what? Let's get started. Welcome to episode 309. I am the ad Dr. Andrew Peeke. And with me today is Beth Russell and Julie Julie Jernigan.JulieHello.AndrewShe's so nice. I said her name twice. There we go. So how are you all? How's life?BethIt's great. How are you?AndrewI'm good. Good. We're hyped up. I have my favorite this episode brought to you by Monster as actually not. But these purple ones. This is my jam this month. As far as caffeinated beverages go. And that's my story. I'm going to talk about caffeine. So we went to the funeral. We had to drive. There's no quick way to get to Sumter if the two people listening that know where Sumter, South Carolina is, it's east of Columbia, kind of on the way towards Myrtle Beach.AndrewBut so you can fly into Charlotte or you fly in the Columbia. There's no coke to get there. It would have been longer time flying by as far as like actual travel time than just driving straight there. So he drove there was a late night for some reason. We went to Panera and I read for like car food and we didn't want McDonald's.AndrewI don't really like McDonald's to eat. I don't want Chick fil A on something I knew like would just be like safe in the car. We're good to go. Had a few more hours left and I didn't know this but I mean try to find the name of it. Panera Energy Drink They have an error has they call it charged lemonades and would I've seen those in person.AndrewThis is the first time I've seen them. I put it on my story and the caffeine intake, the amount of caffeine in it is insane. Oh, my goodness. And it's this little tiny sign and it made me think and someone actually died from this. So this is like, sorry, everybody. This is like a tragedy.BethYeah, like it was like a real issue.AndrewThis is a real issue. But the point of it is like signage messaging, communication. It's cool. It's a charged lemonade, has some caffeine in it, and it compares it to coffee, which no one is like, Oh, you're kind of like overdose on caffeine from coffee. That'd be ridiculous. Even if you go to Starbucks and you're like, I want eight shots and Eventi sure thing.AndrewLike they're not the question. Know that we really strange to do but I'm sure someone's done it or they get to drink same drink. I'm like back to back to back. But like the flavor of this, like you would just want to drink it actually taste pretty good. I have a little bit of sample, but the signage was like, This is just like coffee.AndrewYou look at it and you're like, There's 400 milligrams of caffeine, which is absurd for like a cup. And then you drink it. You're like, I want more how it more? So that's the issue. But it made me think like, well, how is this decision made? There's how many people that touch this product. They designed the product they had, you know, maybe they had feedback from potential consumers as far as they did, like those focus groups, like what should we call it?AndrewDo you like this name versus that name? Hundreds of thousand dollars into researching it and it still kind of got it wrong. Yeah. So I don't know. It's it's interesting like, well, what was the miss? I was sitting there driving like, what happened there? Like how many people touch this? And they still got it wrong and they're going to have a huge issue on their end.AndrewYeah, I'm sure we can relate to that as far as like, how do we decide on this? Like why, what is happening here? You have to go back to like, the drawing board. But more than likely I think there was multiple misses along the way. And then it just led to this not so great decision making by everybody.AndrewSo probably it's not one person, but communication so important, thinking through.BethThinking through it like they have to think through all possibilities. And it's not that you have to overanalyze, right? Like don't send yourself down a rabbit hole, but like, think through something before you actually make it into your new strategy or new this case, a new product.AndrewNew product or how to pronounce a crayon Crayola have to learn how to do that now. So it's a new skill.BethI'm going to keep saying bagel bagels.AndrewDid you hear it? Oh, my goodness. Julie, what do you got? What you got this week?JulieOh, well, this one's more of a question for you guys because somebody brought it up in a meeting and it made me laugh. So we were talking about a new community, but it's in a brand new market, so not their normal market. They build in one market, different areas in one market, moving to another market. And we were talking through the first community and she was like we were talking through search ads and digital ads.JulieAnd when they were putting a sign up and when it was going on the website and she was like, I don't know, she said, I feel like I'm just missing something or overthinking. She was like, It's really just like any other coming soon. Community that we've ever done. And that made me stop and be like, Well, is it?JulieI mean, when you're I just think it's where the conversation, like when you're opening a new community in a brand new market, what's the extra things you have to think about? And for me, it's like I think there's more research that has to be done because you've kind of already have that internal research already done. If you've already opened communities in your area before, like whether you you've like sat down and written that out or not, you, you know, kind of what to expect.JulieI also feel like there's some things we need to start earlier because it's a new market kind of on that research part. Like we don't know how long it's going to take to build a list. And then I think also it's a little bit more of that branding messaging. I know like we don't love the branding thing, but there's also there's also you have to think about that two ways because we also got some branding stuff they want to started that didn't even have like the first location price point, like front and center, like it kind of has to start with that.JulieBut you also have to think about the messaging. So that just got me to thinking there is some different things about opening in a new market you have to think of, but in the end it is just a new community plus some exciting you.BethCan say, Yeah, yeah, absolutely. We had when I was at my previous builder, we went into a new market and we treated it as though it was any other new community that we were releasing. What we were not prepared for was how that market, that area did not want us there, and that made it. It's something that we wish we would have known ahead of time and would have done the research for ahead of time, because then we would have been able to have some time to like do some PR and like really do some grass grassroots efforts and get to know the community more, show them that we're not the bad guys, that weBethreally want to build them a beautiful home. And we're not trying to do all of these things right. We would have had the opportunity to do that if the work was done ahead of time. And what we ended up finding out was that they just flat out did not want us there. And we had the hardest time selling that community.BethIt was it was not a big community. It was a smaller community. It shouldn't have taken the amount of time that it did, but it took a longer time just because of the reception of us being there. And so I think you make a great point that it is something different and you should take. Going back to the conversations we've had about market research and and really taking the time and effort to do some research, just like Panera probably did for their drink, even though they had.AndrewLike the same question, which is so funny, like it's almost the same type of thing. Clarifying questions for you. Beth, Did they not want you there or are they not in my backyard? We don't want new development.BethThey did not want new maybe flavor.AndrewBoth. Okay. And then but then they took like, okay, well, brand name is the face of new development taking what I know change is so evil and bad. Who says it changes the only certainty? You know, I think Kevin says it from someone else, but he changes whatever changes that happened, change CENTCOM. What's that song by SEAL. Good song.AndrewYeah. So to me, yeah, And I agree with both of you. Like it's more on the product research or research of the area, just like Panera. They're getting into the energy drink category, which like, well, let's compare and contrast that. That's fun. The FDA, I don't know this. I did the research because I need to know these things.AndrewThey limit 300 milligrams of caffeine per serving of this. What is a serving? We could just have like the nozzle, whatever. You just fill up your cup and it's the serving is created by the consumer. You have a cup that holds 4 to 8 ounces, be put ice in. It would have a bit less ice. So there is no serving.AndrewSo they're starting. That was like the issue. They didn't really do this. How they got away with it, I have no idea which is interesting. But yeah, to me it's like product research really in on the product. What is in the area which you would assume land acquisition does. But I would think also the truth on the other end is like, Hey, we got a great deal on this piece of land.AndrewIt hits our numbers really well, but then there's maybe some nuances that they're just like, Oh shoot, Like we only got a proof of this. Like, Oh, we really need to transition to a townhome now because the numbers aren't matching up and now you're building townhomes and this is just an example, townhomes in a more rural area where the expectations of acreage or lease space from neighbors to me is significantly higher than when you're like closer to like city center and we're downtown where they're like, Oh, you're fine.AndrewGo away. They're like, what, 250,000 for that? And you get like a ten by ten foot backyard. Joking me. And then I see you taking down the trees or a farm, whatever. Maybe I'll send You're the evil people, But you still sold out of that community, I'd imagine.BethBeth It just took a lot and it took a lot longer. It took a lot more money. Marketing efforts to overcome the objections from the top. So, yeah, it was an interesting endeavor, but a good learning experience. And I think like, I never really thought of it, honestly. Julie Until now in terms of the lessons that it could teach you regarding market research and, and public perception of your community coming in and how getting ahead of that can be extremely impactful when it comes to the success of a new community.JulieAnd I've had multiple builders just here recently who are kind of working to get a spot at the table when it comes to land development. They know that they're not going to be like the final decision maker on that. But if you just get to be in there as part of the communication, you can prepare for the challenges that you may be the one responsible for dealing with down the road, and it gives you more time for that market research to be talked about and all these other things.JulieSo if you can kind of earn enough trust to get you a spot in those conversations, I think that can help a lot too.BethYeah, I was doing seems like really learned how to do your competitive analysis and and understanding your market because that's how you start earning that trust within your organization that people are realizing that you know the data of what's happening within each market and why certain things are going the way they are or why a product isn't selling our price point might be too high or even why something might be successful.BethEven on the positive side, like your CMA is how you can get your foot in the door.AndrewYeah, I've always liked the idea of putting some like put your feelers out there. Like I don't want give the full details on it because they'll give way too much info with that sense of cryptic. Like people are like waiting. Like, what is.JulieIt you're trying to.AndrewSay? This is like $1,000,000 idea, but there are ways. And if you hear this and you want to know, ask and do I see all access? I mean, this is like a tease setup. You can get feedback from the community even before your building, even before a dollar spent on land, you can get tremendous feedback. How do you feel about this, how you feel about that relatively low cost?AndrewAnd I think that's a really good way for the marketers to be like, Hey, here's something I could do. Here's the expense behind it. Let's get 300 people to give us their feedback. What's the price range you're looking for? What features are you looking for? What do you not want? How do you feel about a developer developing in this area?AndrewBe like really generic and then like, Look, you're so unfiltered or something and then you slowly get in the door and hopefully have more input on an acquisition, which is great, and then it's more successful because they're like, Hey, here, 300 people that live there, here's the zip codes, here's maybe a first name or something. You know what they're looking for?AndrewKind of like the middle of the pre-sale process, like, what are you willing to invest where you're looking to invest? Just do that before anything happens.BethYeah.AndrewI think everyone knows what I'm saying. So. Yeah. So what do you got, Beth? Wait. Toilet paper holders. What can they teach us? I'm looking for notes over here that's happening. I need to know about toilet paper holders.BethYeah, so it actually ties really well into the Panera story. I'm not going to lie. It's a planned.AndrewThing. I went to Panera.BethI know. All right, So her good thing parents clear that up. I one of the things I love about this house is that I was extremely insistent that every single one of our toilet paper holders in this house must be a lover and not one of the spring ones. Those drive me bonkers.AndrewYes.BethAnd it's.AndrewLike ten bucks more for one that.JulieI support.AndrewThan a metal arm.BethYes, They're amazing. And they're like every single time after she told me, I'm not mad anymore, I'm just like, Look, look, look. It's just so easy. And I think my husband is less upset about the fact that I'm I'm not leaving like, little bits of toilet paper on the roll because I don't mind actually changing it.AndrewSo you're the guilty one? I'm the only one. Yeah. Shoot.BethSo but the story or the lesson here is that sometimes it's the littlest detail that means the world to someone, Right? And the littlest detail that can make them happy or feel great about a situation. So and sometimes it's a little detail in our marketing that can have a huge difference both positive and negative, like in player's case.BethYeah. So one of the things that we've been talking about with our builders a lot recently, especially going into November and December, is that there's not going to be a huge pool of people new coming in looking to purchase a home. Right. And a lot of what we need to be focusing on is our details in our in our messaging and our marketing and our budgeting.BethAnd then the details of how we are communicating with people already in our CRM who have already expressed interest and the ones that are focused on those details, particularly those personalized ones, are the ones that are going to be the most successful within November and December leading into the next year. So just remember you can learn something from toilet paper holders.AndrewYeah, the details make the difference. This is a side by side tangent. Like aren't there things like I think about like when we're living in our home or like let's say those toilet paper holders were like the standard ones included. Like I think all these little things that really don't cost that much money on the product side for a builder can really add up to like people being satisfied with the home that are just like the tiny little things.AndrewLike to me, my pet peeve with our house is the distance from the fridge to the island. Like it's rather close. So we have like a little what's counter depth I think is the the name for the refrigerator that's already smaller. I'm like, if we had like a non counter depth refrigerator, it would hit the island. So then we're forced to get the counter depth there.AndrewKind of pain to shop for compared to the regular ones. But I'm like.BethAnd they're more expensive and more.AndrewExpensive. Why didn't they just in my brain, I'm like, why didn't they just like, make I would've been fine with a shorter island, like take off a foot. And now there's like, so much more room to get by because you're like, you opening the fridge up and then it's maybe like half a foot from the island. So you're standing there like, Get everything out for dinner.AndrewI put it on the counter, the island behind me making food. This is such a pain so they know it can get by in that spot, which is the main kind of okay way into the kitchen. But I'm like, This could have been such an easy change and actually would have saved money because the island would have been shorter, the builder would have made more money.AndrewI would have been happier with the home. That's interesting. Or another one. I'm just ranting for real quick. When you built with our builder. Yeah, the option of having a paver driveway down here in Florida, that's the thing to do. We don't freeze. So there's no issues with that or a concrete porch driveway. And the great thing with them, I don't if all builders do this, but if you want to upgrade to the pay for driveway, they include the cost of the concrete driveway poured to offset the cost of more pavers.AndrewIt was like $400 more 400 to go pavers on the front, the walkway to to the front door and the back patio. If you do that, like after the fact, it would have, I don't know, ten grand to like have a redone. It looks so much nicer. I'm like, why didn't they just force everyone by? That's not an option.AndrewLike, I know it's a.BethFour minute.AndrewProfit. You have 75 homes, it's 700 more. But then the community would look so much better and the price for one of the homes, it honestly makes more sense to force that option. Like all these little things like we're talking about, I guess we're really talking about product, which in effect really influences marketing.BethSo that is why I was insistent that I be a part of we had what we called I don't want to give the world a name for it. It was like a funky name, but it was basically like, How are we going to value build our product, especially as materials became more expensive, right? So we had a collective of people from different departments coming together marketing, sales, construction, pre-construction, all of them coming together to decide on how we what things we can change and all these things.BethBut it's really interesting because a lot of times in, in builders, especially at the production side, the only people making those decisions are the ones who are building the houses or pricing them out. And I think it's really powerful to have the marketing and the sales perspective present in those rooms because they can be the first one to say no.BethLike that is a feature that people love. The reason why they buy this house. You don't the doggy door over the whatever, whatever the dog house in the room under the stairs. No, no, no. That's pretty mine under the stairs. But they call it the dog house or whatever. But it's actually I can't think of the name right now, but it's in the roofline.BethEveryone's going to be laughing at me listening to this podcast, but my brain just stopped working. Okay, well, basically, like they were going to, like, take them out. And we were like, no, that is people love those. Love those.AndrewAnd so dormer a.BethDormer, dormer dormer, dollhouse dormer. Yes.AndrewThank you. So you mean. Yeah, it looks like a little dog house.BethI mean. Yeah. And so, like, it's it can be it adds it's it adds money, obviously to the exterior of the home and the cost of the home. And it's like, okay, do we really need to need it? We can shave $800 off the price of the home, the cost of billable blah. But like that one feature made it stand out.BethThat particular floor plan made it stand out amongst a bunch of others and people loved it. And so you take that away, you're going to start selling less of them. You're not actually making that profit back.JulieWell, in Andrew's example, if you made that island a little smaller, you can promote that as a new and improved floorplan. So as a marketer, when you make those changes, people love new things and they love to get, you know, an email about brand new this is improved, so use that to your advantage When you do make more plan adjustments.AndrewOur floor plans elevate your living. I don't know. I just made it up, but something where you could have this whole like elegant name go to Chad and ask it to, you know, make a name for you and then change your name slightly.BethAnd say that if you use the buyer's feedback, like and this Andrew Pete guy kept complaining, we listened and now.AndrewThese words, but he was like, you.JulieKnow.AndrewIt's from South Carolina, so God bless his basil lessons. Oh, man. I think I think that might be for storytime. So let's move on to the news. This one's fine. This is from Zillow. I'm like, What's happening here? So nearly 70%, 77 0% of prospective buyers would buy a haunted house if it checked all their boxes. Is this how desperate people are?AndrewLike Jesus, That's that was my feeling on it. Like, if you find something that might be haunted, it might have a basement roommate that you don't know about that comes out at two or three in the morning. But, you know, we can afford the home, so we call like we're good with it.JulieNo. Would you all, would you all. I'm definitely in the 30%. No way.AndrewWay. You're in Louisiana. There's like people that do like voodoo and stuff like that, right? I feel like that's.BethLike, the same.JulieWith that stuff. I do not mess with it. I'm like, Oh, there's people I'd do that, like, threaten my kids if there's a Ouija board at a sleepover. Do not like I'm very weird about that stuff, but I'm in the 30% that I would pass on the haunted house. No matter how good it was.BethI think when you were younger and the craft was like that movie came out, Do you remember in the nineties when the craft came out? Did you ever do like I remember I, me, my friends were like, obsessed with the craft, which is horrible.AndrewWhat's that? I think of the movie Paranormal Activity like, and that's what people are buying like it's Paranormal Activity, that movie, which was a dumb, dumb movie. I don't, I don't know. I think I would I would pass on a home where there was like, tragedy, like it was known or like, but haunted is kind of like, what's that mean?AndrewBut if like, hey, like, just so you know. Disclaimer Four years ago, a family of six was murdered here. Okay, we're good. Like, we're gonna pass. No, like, we're we're definitely good, But maybe that's haunted. Maybe that's what they're classifying as something bad happening.BethAnd I'm not real desperate times.JulieI think they should market new homes. Like, definitely not haunted because no one else has lived in this home. And that would be like, sold. You know, that's thrift a lot. Like, I love going to thrift stores and buying stuff. And like, you read these stories about like, you know, people bringing items and then bad like I'm very weird about that stuff.AndrewYeah. You still thrift that's I think that might be why you like a little bit it's kind of dangerous like I'm a go thrift but you know this item who knows it.BethMight get me my.AndrewYou need like sage it and all that stuff. It's clean, it's cleansed. We're going to throw some holy water on it.JulieLike some kind of creepy dolls. No creepy mirrors and, you know, creepy dolls.AndrewIt's got none of that or no, like, weird basement things going on. Fortunately, I'm in Florida. There's no basements or you're under the water. Yeah, I don't know. This is interesting. I'm put under the interesting category.BethI like their attempt at seasonal content, you know, with the data. Yeah.AndrewIt's good. It's like, do they want this to go viral? Like, I think there's things companies do like remember a while back, Amazon, they're really pushing this drone delivery and it was before drones were really accessible. Mine's like right behind my chair like you could Amazon to get one and 4 hours like it's right there. This was like, Oh, you have a drone.AndrewOh my goodness. Was crazy. And so they're saying, Hey, we're not going to deliver packages with Amazon Prime via drone. And to me I'm like, this is just a CEO play like they're getting earned media PR and then they're getting 100,000 links pointed to their sites from great websites and that's going to help them rank a bit more.AndrewSo I'm like Zillow, is that what you're doing? If you're listening, let us know. But you're right, it is timely with October.JulieSo I want I want a builder to write a blog post about how we can guarantee that your house is not haunted. Okay. Yeah, because it's brand new. There's no one else. I have your.BethYeah, but I like that messaging better than no toenails. And our carpet.AndrewIs that quick. When leaders. I think you're the toenail guy with the use carpet going like do you really want that. Do you think about that. Yeah that's new is you could sell new so much easier. Let's see let's go to the next one. This one didn't work for me, but we'll pull it up here. So this one is from Wall Street Journal.AndrewThere's never been a worse time to buy instead of rent. I mean, I know what holes I want to poke in this article, so I'll go last. But what did you guys like about it or not? Like about it?BethWell, I couldn't read the whole thing, so because it was restricted. So.AndrewBut I did include the Twitter. Yeah, the tweet.BethYeah, that's what I was. I was kind of going through that. And just like the rising cost to buy versus the rising cost to rent. And I think the biggest hold a poke on this, of course, is that people still need to move. Right? Right. And the rent, the cost of rent is still continuing to rise. And so what is the long term cost to you over your lifetime and the lifetime of owning versus not owning?BethYou know, the reason why we have purchased three homes at three different duty stations is because now when my husband retires out of the army, we have net worth, we have something. We have accumulated wealth through the home, the homes that we have owned and then rent it out. And so when we sell them, we'll hopefully knock on wood being a good place.BethBut we have friends of ours that have moved from state to state, state to state and have never purchase a home before, and they will not have the same wealth when they leave the army and they won't like what are they going to do? They're going to buy for the first time in their forties or fifties, depending on whatever they decide to retire.BethAnd I mean no judgment like everyone is different. But like the VA loan is such an amazing tool and the cost to rent is actually people are like, Well, when you own you have all these maintenance, you have to do all these things about renting, like you still have to do maintenance, you still have to do repairs. When you move in a move out and security deposit, you have to, you know, sometimes have to pay for places to get painted.BethI mean, we're not discussing, so we don't have to do that. But like, there's there's additional costs that still occur when you're renting and you're paying someone else as well at that.AndrewRight. 100% interest. Yeah.JulieAnd you have no control over when your rents get right. I mean it can be a year later. But what I'm saying is, you know what, your mortgage is going to be your paid what you paid for the house at one time before, you know, real estate normally goes up, rent is going to go up. Probably most years.JulieSo I just think it needs to be back to the research. You need to know what if if you sell a lot of first time buyer homes, you need to know what rents are in your area and you need to be able to have that conversation like Beth was having of the advantages of why.BethYeah, and there's a bigger picture to this in both directions, right? Like some people just don't have the ability to purchase a home because they can't qualify, because right now the average income needed to qualify for a home average home is like 114 her $15,000 a year. And there's just families that don't have that even at adult income level.BethSo like, that is still true and there's still people that can't afford to purchase. And so they are having to rent. But I mean, both are on the rise. That's the reality.AndrewYeah. Both. So the chart we're looking at is from bar chart. It is a Twitter account which really just I understand they just take popular subjects and they throw it into a chart and then it is a great place to, to view them. So to me, the first hold up, okay, this is like this is just the average mortgage and then the average rent.AndrewIt's not I'm in some of the Florida or ZIP codes that we would find acceptable to live in to make it simpler. 33777337763357. To write rent for those areas for a four bedroom, two bath, 2 to 2500 feet like a family ish home. Right. Maybe it could be a little smaller but like 3500 to 4000 is what you will pay for a detached home for that.AndrewThat home would sell for around 500, 4 to 500, depending on like what street and like all that sort of thing. So like, this is correct, but I'm like, okay, we still go down to like the individual. I think it is not the most accurate set of data because it's 2700 for what? Like what size home, what mortgage amount is the 18 it's comparing 20 $700 Is the average mortgage now versus 1845 Is the average rent, was that for a two to is that including a bunch of one one studios or one one studios in like outside of downtown or not even close to downtown, which those might be 1200 or 1800.AndrewAnd just comparing all mortgages and X amount of time, which maybe there's everything's gone up, there's less first time homes or like entry level homes. So like that's going to skew up everything already. So I don't think it's I don't think the data is really actually fair or comparable. But everything you guys said is 100% true. Like your mortgage is locked and insurance could change property taxes on change.AndrewThose things will continue to rise up. But your actual mortgage is locked in for what it is. And I always thought, you know, rent is 100% interest, like you're losing all that, but then you gain flexibility to move with after your leases up. Or if you could get out of it. Yeah, but how do you but we start to counteract, like if people are seeing articles like this, we still have to sell them otherwise because we still need to sell, but people will.BethMove. There's an interesting lesson here based on everything that you just said.AndrewLet's see.BethThe circle. Let's see what this looks like. But this is someone taking data and delivering it in a digestible way and creating a story around the data. Right. And every day as marketers, we need to be able to do that. We're sitting here and we're poking holes in all the data and asking relevant questions and telling the different stories that this data could also be potentially showing us.BethSo I think like there's a lot of skill that just unfolded in this conversation, that skill that marketers need to be practicing right now.AndrewGenius. That's why you're here.BethIt just saying just don't deliver charts.AndrewAnd it's one metric, right? But we kind of like kind of get a little whatever. We kind of get some attitude. We're like, this is one metric. It's kind of one metric. There needs to be like square footage, bedroom count, something to like make it a bit more precise versus just average mortgage versus average rent. Yeah, but I.JulieHeard not that many. 3000 square foot rentals are not as many as there are 900 square foot rentals.AndrewOn a percent. Yeah I agree. They need to put like Yeah I don't know Bobby, I don't. There's any mass way to that be applicable to like the whole United States. What third metric to throw in there. I don't know if you want to think about but I'm gonna start following bar chart a lot of finance stuff. Like it's not.AndrewYeah, it's definitely nerdy, but it looks like a lot of fun to go in there.BethAnd get some inspiration from the charts that you see in the data that's being showcased. How many times you guys get asked, like what data points should I, what metric should I be focusing on? Like.AndrewThat's such a hard question, isn't it?BethBecause it's it's not just like I think our fear and you can correct me if I'm wrong on this, especially you, Andrew, being the ad doctor. Like if you focus on one metric only having a pasty, a self certified Ph.D., but it's.AndrewAll dollars.BethEven if you only focus on one or two metric points and tell the story around that consistently, then you're missing parts of the story and you're not painting that whole picture.JulieYeah, and everything you need to know doesn't necessarily need to be reported to other people in the company. And leadership like you need to take all that data and then give them something more digestible. If you tried to just dump all the information out, we're telling you to keep track of on other people who don't have any context.JulieYou're just in for lots of questions and probably conclusions that you didn't want them to reach since they don't have the full story.AndrewYeah, I agree. So I'll lean on my funny Instagram handle and kind of nickname the ad doctor. So I think we've all had bloodwork done. Raw old people here on the podcast aren't me. And so you have like, thank yourself. You're welcome. Everyone's welcome. I feel old sometimes, like I had echocardiogram like two weeks ago, like that's some old people stuff.AndrewWho's had one of those antibody a bit Beth has, Yeah, there we go. That's got all the stuff. So if you do your blood work right, you have like p you have like I here's your red blood cell count, here's your inadequate, here's all these things that are related to blood, here's all these related to cholesterol, here's all the very liver, kidney, like two different systems of your body.AndrewSo we're not doctors on here, but we are marketers. So there's let's say you get your panel on. There's 40 different metrics there, monitoring. They're all connected together and you're like, Oh, Weiser, Hematocrit high. That's like the density of your blood kind of way. You're dehydrated because look down here at this metric, that means you're dehydrated. It's gonna make this one higher.AndrewSo we need to understand all these things and then explain it to our internal clients, which would anyone you're working with Or like your patients, you can't be like, Hey, look, your matter gets high. You need to. That's not good. You need to go give blood or something. It's like, No, you're saying drink of water. What's wrong with you?AndrewSo we need to explain it in a way that everyone understands what we're talking about, but we don't need to go into the science all behind it. But we definitely need to understand it. And if we understand it that we can control it, we can manipulate it or have influence on it, and then we can have better outcomes for our patients, whether they're not doctors.AndrewSo better outcomes for our builder. But if we don't understand it and how are you going to influence those, we might push the wrong levers or do things that will then send it in the wrong direction.BethAnd the whole point is that you can't understand it by only focusing on two data points. You have to understand how they all work together.AndrewKind of all of them. And over time you'll get a better picture of the whole systems. You're like, Oh, it's all connected. It's all connected. And then you'll have this like, I think epiphany moment. Like, Oh, this is actually not that challenging anymore. Yeah, I guess that's, that's a point. And two or three or four or five years in your career, like what used to be difficult is now like kindergarten level 1 to 1.AndrewIt's going up and up and up. If you if you love it, if you're passionate about it, then those things will be like, super easy to do. Oh, man. Well, there we go. That's it for the news.BethThat when an unexpected root. But I like.AndrewIt. Yeah, it worked out. It worked out well. Current favorites. Beth, what's your favorite?BethHalloween is big in our house. We actually shared this on I don't know if was a marketing thing call or what of like different family themed Halloween. We are that family that go hard for Halloween. And so like over the years our favorite has been hocus pocus as far where Berkeley and I were. Each of us were a Sanderson sister and my husband was Billy.BethSo stay tuned for our family. Call tomorrow, y'all. You might get a peek at that Billy mask. Do it and do it. Just freak everyone out. So, yeah, we've done a ton of stained costumes over the years. We absolutely love it. I'm going to be really heartbroken when my kids are too embarrassed to do it with us anymore.BethBut I know that day will come. Having come yet.AndrewLike them, they might take a payment.BethYeah. Bribe them with something. It's fine. Hashtag good parenting. Yeah. So this year, we're. I don't know how we came about this. I forget who came up with the idea, but we're doing hook.AndrewLike Peter Pan.BethYeah.AndrewLike Robin Williams way back in the day.BethYeah, My husband is Hook, so that'll be fun. I'm Wendy Berkley is Tink think about.AndrewAs in.BethSay, fitting. I think she probably came up with this honestly.AndrewProbably the.BethSound or what.AndrewSounds right.BethIt sounds accurate. And then Cullen is Peter Pan and he has a sword, so he is high up.AndrewThere we go. He's got. He's got the sword. Oh, man, I don't we've never done that. I don't think we've done, like, random things, but like, that's I don't really like the effort of finding a costume, thinking about a costume. There's something I'm like, I don't.BethThis is too much.AndrewI'm a holiday person, but I'm a holiday person because of the food. So and there's really like, what food is there with Halloween? I like candy.BethBut I.AndrewDon't I would.BethEat, but.AndrewIt's more my.BethBrownies. And you would like it more like bran.AndrewYeah, but. But I mean, it's like Thanksgiving, though, so Thanksgiving is great because you got all the desserts, all the food. Yeah. Julie, you have any current favorites? I'm trying to think of one right now. I know I got one.JulieI watched the comedy special by Nate Lagasse. Is that his name? Oh, it was really good. It's clean. And so you can listen to it, like in the car or something. It's on Amazon. The only downside is I had Nate's hilarious. I had heard like half the jokes already on scrolling Instagram, so that kind of ruined part of it.JulieBut that's worth listening to. And I'm not like a comedy special kind of person. Like, it's just not normally my thing, but it was cute.AndrewYeah.JulieI'll think about watching Parks and Rec right now, which I know is old school, but that first.AndrewTime or like, is this like a repeat show? You do it all the time.JulieI've never watched it all the way through. I mean, we've seen like, that's like a few, but we've never watched it all. And so that's usually what we do. My husband and I, we pick like a sitcom or something and just watch it all the way through like one night. And so that's what we're on right now. So that's fun.AndrewNow, why don't I take a long time? We enjoy Parks and Rec. We go to the office, Seinfeld, Parks and Rec, sometimes New girl, we get thrown in there and then like a pop up like we are. This is not a favorite. Definitely not a favorite, but we're watching it. £1,000 Sisters on TLC. Oh, are.BethYou and Kevin with your reality TV?AndrewI usually don't like reality TV, but this is just so I mean, there's a lot of this is I'll talk about it then I'll tell you my favorite, like the extremes are interesting to me, even though this is like to me, it's really sad. I know there's like, they're kind of funny little things, but I'm like, ooh, like this is truly addiction.AndrewShine I'm not trying to be so serious on this podcast. I got a smile on my face, but like, this is addiction. There's like mental health things to deal with of why do you choose to eat all this stuff? So that's interesting to watch. But say, Shane Gillis, I really enjoyed him recently. As far as comedians go, how did you find Nate Bogosian?AndrewJulie Oh, I think for me, I mean, Instagram. Okay, So I found Shane Same thing, Instagram. So that's really interesting as far as like new people to their funnels is Instagram, TikTok.BethSpinning.AndrewReels. So Shane Gillis I think comedy should be on the edge of maybe offending a lot of people, maybe not. And he kind of likes that one.JulieHe's super clean.AndrewHe's yeah, he's fun. I like him. But he's gay, right? He's clean. Like the Yvonne. He's from Louisiana. I'm not sure if you know the Avon.BethHe. No, I know. Feels like there's probably real world or road.JulieRules that's how. Yeah.AndrewSo somehow he's like, around for a long time. That's crazy to me like he should've thought. And I think he's hilarious. He's definitely out there like he's he has problems to deal with, but he's, he's funny, he's unique. He's. He's interesting. But so Shangri-Las he's my he's my go to right now as far as comedians go. Let's see.AndrewWell that that's it for this week We have anything else to add like we're in charge here bosses way we're we're here to play.BethWhat's it?AndrewHi, There we go.

Today we're going to talk about the #1 vitamin deficiency behind bladder issues: vitamin B1 deficiency. A vitamin B1 deficiency could lead to problems, including: • Leaky bladder • Incomplete urination • Frequent urination • Getting up in the middle of the night to urinate The common thread behind these bladder issues is actually a problem with the nervous system. The main control with urine elimination stems from the brain, and this part of the brain is very sensitive to a vitamin B1 (thiamine) deficiency. A thiamine deficiency in the brain can even starve off certain neurons, causing a lack of function. The part of the brain that controls the bladder can shrink, leading to a loss of control of the bladder. This situation is common with age and in those with diabetes, prediabetes, or chronic insulin resistance. Natural tips to get rid of bladder issues: 1. Take vitamin B1 (benfotiamine and natural B1) 2. Get on the Healthy Keto® diet and do intermittent fasting 3. Drink 2.5 liters of fluid a day (not past 6 pm or 7 pm) 4. Consume apple cider vinegar (1 to 2 TBSP in water) 5. Reduce caffeine consumption 6. Massage the bladder DATA: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19386... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19846... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti... https://www.ajnr.org/content/29/1/164 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25846... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15664... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15664... https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/a... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19194... https://repository.kulib.kyoto-u.ac.j... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20369... https://www.hormonesmatter.com/thiami...
Entering September, the Cardinals had an offense that ranked in the top eight in the majors, was producing runs 7% better than the average lineup, and that was with two of its centerpieces struggling. They had the bats to carry a contender. Their arms let them down. The solution is obvious, to quote an executive: "Pitching. Pitching. Pitching." That does not make easy. Frequent contributor Kevin Wheeler, part of the The Dave Glover Show on KMOX/1120 AM, joins the BPIB to discuss the fallout from the 2023 season and the pitching plans that will create a quick turnaround for 2024. He also discusses the defensive spectrum and tries to stay one step ahead of BPIB host, St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold.

Frequent rioting, looting, and shoplifting are driving businesses out of major American cities. The progressive ideology that makes policing impossible will eventually destroy our once-high-trust society.

Let's talk about benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. This means a person has an enlarged prostate gland. Symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia: • Frequent urination (especially at night) • A weak stream • Dribbling after urination • A sensation that you can't fully empty your bladder Excess estrogen increases the size of the prostate. Estrogen also increases prolactin, which can increase the size of the prostate. Estrogen is a byproduct of testosterone in both females and males. To convert testosterone to estrogen, you need an enzyme called aromatase. The testicles and fat cells make aromatase. Phytoestrogens can mimic estrogen, but not very much. To shrink the prostate naturally, we want to inhibit aromatase to decrease estrogen production. Top things that increase aromatase: • Age • Body fat • Insulin • High-carb diets • Alcohol • Whole grains • Hormone replacement therapy • Birth control pills Things that decrease aromatase: • Cruciferous vegetables • White button mushrooms (sautéed) • Flaxseed • Green tea • Citrus peel In addition to losing weight with Healthy Keto®, reducing insulin, and consuming cruciferous vegetables, you can try a fantastic natural remedy for an enlarged prostate that involves citrus peel. The best natural remedy to support prostate health: Add a whole lemon and a glass of water to a blender, and blend it for about 30 seconds. Then, blend again with about five to ten drops of liquid stevia or 1/2 to 1 cup of blueberries. You can have this at any time of day—enjoy!
