Devonia Inman's exoneration was the culmination of decades of work, first by the Georgia Innocence Project, which secured DNA evidence pointing to another suspect, and then by former Georgia State University law professor Jessica Cino and bro bono attorneys with the Atlanta firm Troutman Pepper. After spending most of his adult life behind bars, Inman, now 43, faces a long road to realizing a future that was derailed by his wrongful conviction. His release also leaves open the question of whether anyone will be held accountable for the 1998 murder of Donna Brown.If you'd like to support our work, go to theintercept.com/donate — your donation, no matter what the amount, makes a real difference.

Talking Points: What inspired you to start American Snippets Please tell us more about the event, The Great American Summit! Tell us about your first book, Front Towards Enemy; what inspired you to write it? If you feel trapped under the weight of pain, grief, trauma, and hopelessness, how to let it go?

Lou and the commanding officer were murdered by a fellow soldier. That soldier was ultimately acquitted after a lengthy judicial process, in spite of his submission of a guilty plea.  Her personal and professional tragedies and triumphs introduced Barb to mentors that guided her through her challenges. She passed that insight on to hundreds of veterans she counseled as a Veterans Services Officer, and shares it with her audiences and people she professionally mentors today.

New Home Sales Consultant and Associate Broker with McKinley Homes Xi Veerkamp joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to discuss her impressive OBIE win as well as recent McKinley Homes developments. Veerkamp joins hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the All About Real Estate segment. After moving to the U.S. to complete her undergraduate degree in 2008, Veerkamp received her M.B.A. in real estate from Georgia State University. In 2018, she joined the McKinley Homes team as a land acquisition analyst and later, became the land acquisition manager before transitioning into her role in new home sales. Although a relatively new company, McKinley Homes is a fast-growing metro Atlanta builder, experiencing nearly 40% growth year over year. With plans to reach 1,000 closings in the Atlanta market as well as expand into other markets, McKinley Homes is celebrating the ground-breaking of a 40-unit luxury condominium development in New York. Not limited to residential projects, the builder also specializes in retail, commercial and custom home construction. Veerkamp said, “I'm very honored to be a part of this team.” In January 2021, Veerkamp closed an astonishing 47 sales, setting her up for a year of continued success. Before she stepped into her role as a new home sales consultant, there was an average of four sales per month. In her first month, she closed on five sales and has since closed an average of 16 sales per month for the new home sales division. Veerkamp credits the products and marketing provided by the McKinley Homes team for her incredible success. Veerkamp shared, “The more you work, the more you get in return in this industry.” To combat the current inventory shortage, McKinley Homes is working to bring more communities to the market while focusing on pricing, location and product to meet buyer needs. In Veerkamp's opinion, regardless of the state of the market, those three components are key to successfully selling homes. A top McKinley Homes community located less than 10 minutes from downtown Woodstock and two miles from I-575, East of Main is virtually sold out but still has opportunities in its sister development! A unique community feature, the McKinley Homes team constructed a shopping center directly in front of the development to offer residents of this 58-unit townhome community great access to nearby retail opportunities. Nearly selling out of its first phase soon after opening, Estates at Starr Creek features single-family homes situated on expansive lots, some surpassing half an acre. Close proximity to downtown Cumming affords residents of this community a central Forsyth County location as well as easy access to local amenities.

Atlanta, a monthly meet-up designed to empower, educate, and advise on sustainable and profitable real estate business. Before becoming an entrepreneur, Brandon earned his corporate stripes working for international brands, including the Kraft Heinz Company and Unilever. An undergraduate from Georgia State University, Brandon gained his degree in Operations Management from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University, where he also earned his Entrepreneur Certificate. Born in Chicago and raised in Stone Mountain, Brandon now resides in Atlanta with his wife and four children. Brandon joins me today to discuss his journey into real estate that began in 2016 when he abruptly fell off the corporate ladder and needed a solution to provide for his new wife and baby. He shares his early cold calling strategies and why the first 'NO' is not the final 'NO," and why you shouldn't be burning through your cold call list too quickly. He reveals why hiring an Acquisition Manager was a game-changer in his selling method and what automated offer delivery systems can do for your numbers. Brandon also explains his three C's, Consistency, Continuous Learning & Development, and Coaching, and how these have been the bedrock of his rapid real estate success. "I got out of my own way by putting an acquisition manager in place to send offers without appointments. And once we started to do that, our goal is 50 offers a week. We really started to see some really strong results." – Brandon Barnes "A cold caller needs to have their own set of follow-ups of people that immediately said 'No Not Interested' but they're going to come back to them because that is going to even out the amount of leads that they're generating over time." – Brandon Barnes "Sending 50 offers is one thing but being able to follow up on all the offers that you sent is the other piece." – Brandon Barnes "Literally, I hired acquisition manager in November - it was around Thanksgiving when I did the interview. And that next year we went from making like 280 to 950 within that business, plus I had my own deals going on at the same time" – Brandon Barnes This week on Flip Talk: How Brandon adapted his direct mail strategy for amazing returns How an Acquisition Manager can help in ramping up offers Why your cold call technique might not be working Why the follow up is the vital Part Two of your strategy How to get your offer and their price in the same ballpark What an automated offer delivery system can do for your sales outcome Brandon's Three C's for REI Connect with Brandon Barnes: Send More Offers Website REI LIVE!

They are the “glue” of the team. Conscientious people are thinkers, their key desire is order, accuracy, precision and perfection.People are never just purely one personality, there's at least one more since people are very complex. However, there is one personality that's more dominant than the others. DISC won't only help you and your team know each other's strengths and weaknesses, but it can also be used to communicate and interact with your clients more effectively.To know a person's DISC personality -  give people two simple either/or decisions, see if they exhibit a more open or guarded behavior and direct or indirect behavior. "The beauty of DISC is that it… makes us better managers, builds a team cohesion because if I could know who's what style, what the do's and don'ts of communication could be, what their strengths and struggles may be - it makes our interaction so much more productive." — Dr. Tony Alessandra YouTube playlist link mentioned in the episode:https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTNKuyfaKqLbCwGVqyfFRQghFoRFaQQjr Free Communication Coach link mentioned in episode:https://www.assessments24x7.com/communication-coach To take the DISC with Jennie at a discounted rate go to https://badassdirectsalesmastery.com/product/deeper-than-disc/And use coupon code BDSMDISC to get $50 off full priceConnect with Dr. Tony Alessandra:Twitter: https://twitter.com/TonyAlessandra Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Assessments247 Instagram: https://instagram.com/tonyalessandra/ Website: https://alessandra.com/ YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/TonyAlessandra LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tonyalessandra/ Blog: http://www.assessments24x7.com/blogCONNECT WITH JENNIE:Twitter: https://twitter.com/jenniebplFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/badassdirectsalesmastery/app/307339332686535/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/badassdirectsalesmastery/Website: https://badassdirectsalesmastery.com/ Show: https://badassdirectsalesmastery.com/blog/Email: jennie@badassdirectsalesmastery.com Show notes by Podcastologist: Justine TallaAudio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.
