El 13 de abril del año 2000, Metallica comienza el día una de las bandas de Rock más grandes de todo el mundo sin embargo su carrera está a punto de dar un giro inesperado por la agresiva batalla que están a punto de librar contra Napster, una web que permitía compartir archivos de música. Pues se filtró y comenzó a sonar en las radios de EEUU un demo del tema "I Disappear” en el que trabajaban para la banda sonora de la película Misión Imposible 2. Metallica presentó una demanda, no solo contra Napster, sino también contra varias universidades estadounidenses que habían puesto sus medios para que algunos de sus estudiantes accedieran a la web. ¿De qué se les acusaba? De vulnerar el derecho de autor, uso ilegítimo de un interfaz de audio y de violar la RICO, una ley sobre organizaciones y corrupción. En resumen, el "paquete" que se podía llevar Napster era muy gordo. ¿Qué pedía Metallica? 100.000 dólares por cada violación del copyrigh. Al final, en 2001, Napster llegó a un acuerdo con Metallica. Ulrich, en aquel momento se tranquilizó. https://ratethispodcast.com/colmilloroquero Puede suscribirse al podcast y encontrar las plataformas disponibles en: https://colmilloroquero.com/plataformas/ todos nuestros enlaces están disponibles acá: https://linktr.ee/ColmilloRoquero Enlace a lo que hablamos: Banda sonora de Misión Imposible 2: https://amzn.to/3wicwA3 Lars Ulrich joins HuffPost https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r6wn47_Vqs Campaña publicitaria de Lars Ulrich https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQc0x5E9jOc Metallica Lars Ulrich testifies to Senate Judiciary Committee July 11, 2000 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzGk0xY5Vh0 Fuente: https://www.rockfm.fm/anecdotas/noticias/metallica-napster-dia-que-lars-ulrich-convirtio-enemigo-publico-numero-uno-20200410_676902 Síguenos en nuestra cuenta de instagram @colmilloroquero para estar al tanto de lo que hacemos. ¿Cómo me contacto con Colmillo Roquero? www.colmilloroquero.com/contacto Contacto colmilloroquero@gmail.com Instagram, Twitter: @colmilloroquero Si le gusta el podcast Colmillo Roquero, suscríbase ya y no se pierda ningún episodio.

Genuine girl power enthusiast, speaker, and author Michelle Dempsey knows how difficult divorce is for mothers with young kids. Her struggle in finding resources motivated her to write and launch a podcast, aiming to guide other women in defeating the challenges of divorce and moving forward into becoming their best selves. What's her main piece of advice? Seek support, and focus on yourself. Tune in to this episode on Moms Moving On: Conquering Divorce and Conflicted Coparenting with Michelle Dempsey. Key points covered in this episode:   ✔️Keep your ego in check. You may not have full control over other people's opinions. But you have the power over your response. Michelle Dempsey touches on women's paralyzing worry over their ex-spouses, badmouthing them to their children. ✔️ Co-parenting expert Bill Eddy says, “One reasonable parent is enough for the kids to be okay, even in unreasonable situations.” Cut out all the fighting and talking badly about your ex, then your kids would come out more resilient than ever.  ✔️Everybody's journey post-divorce looks different. And that's okay. Don't rush the process. Hastily securing your financials, parenting plan, or even living conditions can have long-term consequences. You want to be set up for success after this life-changing experience. ✔️The person who should change after marriage is you. No, it isn't your fault, nor did you do anything wrong. But because you have to pick yourself up and learn how to co-parent with someone you once loved.   ✔️Personal validation is your responsibility. You're in this situation to be a parent, not as a former lover. If you've been so used to receiving approval from this person, it's time to set boundaries. ✔️Take it slow in finding a healthy relationship post-divorce. It can be exhausting for the children to be introduced to someone new every two weeks. Enjoy your singlehood as you search for the right person that brings comfort and safety into your home and your heart. Michelle Dempsey is a writer, mom, coach, Certified Divorce Specialist, speaker, and genuine girl power enthusiast. She fully believes in the power of having someone by your side to help you through the uncomfortable process of divorce as a way to empower and educate, making clients stronger. Her work has been featured in publications including Forbes, Scary Mommy, Parents, Daily Business Review, HuffPost, Elite Daily, and more. She works with women at all stages of divorce; from just deciding to end their marriage to looking for their stride in co-parenting and everything in between. _______________________________________ Connect with Wendy Sterling: Website: https://wendysterling.net/ Instagram: @divorcerehabwithwendy Twitter: @thedivorcerehab Facebook: @wendytsterling  Need an opportunity to share your pain points and receive judgment-free support?

Our guest this week is Diana Williams, who, after 30 years in the entertainment media industry working on premier content like the Star Wars Marvel Cinematic universes, has founded a new company, Kinetic Energy Entertainment, focused on partnering with creatives to build new intellectual property (IP) for today's rapidly changing media landscape. Starting with a clear and holistic definition of IP as being a story world with multiple points of entry for an audience, Diana sees this as a way to honor rich content by developing the ABC's – Audience, Business, Creative – in tandem with specific media formats, thus building authentic engagement with the audience from the start, rather than marketing to them after a product is developed. We look at how entertainment revenue models have changed with streaming, and how business is struggling to change to fit that reality. Talking through one of her current projects, a PC game called Political Arena developed with pundit Eliot Nelson, we get a closer look at some of the strategies that guide this venture, and also the changing role of entertainment as a source of education. Without having the primary goal to educate, entertainment increasingly, if unwittingly, fills that gap, but does that make it a responsibility? While audience demand may still be dragging the legacy entertainment industry kicking and screaming toward changes in representation, that is the tide, and Diana is betting that building entertainment around audience truth is the way to develop solid and loyal fan relationships that will in turn feed into better content.A full transcript of this episode will be available soon!Here are some of the references from this episode, for those who want to dig a little deeper:Diana's company, Kinetic Energy EntertainmentMore about the Peabody Interactive BoardAnd the inaugural Winners for Digital and Interactive Storytelling, which were announced on 3/24/2022Some of the press coverage of Political Arena game:Washington PostNPRWashingtonianMarketWatchMicThe Times UKCheddarSteam page, including the "attack ad" trailer for the gamePolitical Arena creator and HuffPost columnist Eliot Nelson (book, The Beltway Bible)Science and Entertainment ExchangeControversy over whether to recast T'Challa (Black Panther) in the MCUFor more on games-based learning, see:Kurt SquireJames Paul GeeZoe CorwinKatie Salen TakinbasFor more about building out story worlds, check out our previous episodes with Nonny de La Peña, Alex McDowell, and Ann Pendleton-JulianWe've also done several episodes about Transmedia StorytellingFor more on games-based learning, listen to our episode with Kurt Squire and Katie Salen Tekinbas.… and for more discussion of Fast & Furious fandom, check out our previous episode with Sue Ding!Share your thoughts via Twitter with Henry, Colin and the How Do You Like It So Far? account!

While at times a difficult topic to broach, men's mental health reflects an important area of both clinical and research interest.  Moreover, despite the strong emotions that can be evoked by this subject, it is an issue which must be successfully integrated into the current discussion around mental health and wellbeing.  In this wide ranging discussion, professor, author and documentary producer, Dr. Rob Whitley and men's mental health advocate, keynote speaker and panelist, Mr. Jean-Francois Claude join us for a discussion of men's mental health.  In this conversation we cover:  the most common sources of challenge with respect to men's mental healthcommon misconceptions that clinicians and/or the average lay person may hold with respect to men's mental healthwhy men's mental health can feel at times a “radioactive” topic to discusswhy men do not disclose their mental health issues to family and/or health care providers discussion of the term “toxic masculinity” considerations around discussing the realities of men's mental health without alienating the equally unique circumstances and burdens of other groups, including womenopportunities for men to take responsibility for their mental health at the individual and group level why men are often viewed as disposable (by themselves and others)how men relate to therapy and current norms in the delivery of psychotherapy as well as innovations in the delivery of mental health services for menthe importance of vulnerability in seeking help vs. the reception that men get when demonstrating vulnerability (e.g., military and police clients  and so-called “broken toy” syndrome)Comments or feedback?  Email the show @ oicbtpodcast@gmail.comJean-François Claude regularly shares his lived experience of Persistent Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder as a bilingual mental health keynote speaker and panelist, leveraging the power of storytelling to help reduce the stigma of mental illness.

Welcome to another episode of the Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael Albaum, and today I'm joined by Michael Episcope, who is the principal at origin investments and Michael is going to be talking to us today about his role in doing round up multifamily development in today's current market conditions. We're also gonna be talking about inflation, and qualified opportunity zones. So let's get into it.   Michael, thanks so much for taking the time to hang out with me today. I really appreciate you coming on.   Michael E.: Thanks for having me, Michael.   Michael: My pleasure. So I know a little bit about your background. But I would love if you could share just a quick and dirty Spiel who you are, where you're coming from and what is it that you're doing today in real estate?   Michael E.: Yeah, how is the quick and dirty so I'll take you back. Well, I'm CO-CEO of origin investments were a real estate investment firm, located in Chicago, we primarily focus on ground up development in what we call the smile states tax friendly, climate friendly, business friendly states. Even though we're located in Chicago, we don't do any investing here and my real estate career if I want to, you know, take you kind of far back started God, I didn't realize this, but I was about 10 years old and I used to go and work for my grandfather in the summer and he was somebody who was pretty gritty bought buildings in the west side of Chicago and if anybody knows, the west side of Chicago, it's not a good area, it hasn't been a good area. Never was and he bought buildings out of tax sales and that was at a time when people didn't take pay their taxes, you can go in there and buy, I mean, a 25 story building for $100,000 and that's what he did and in order to run those, though, you had to be hands on you had to be gritty and so I used to spend my summers with him and, and then I had another friend too, that his dad was in construction. So I love swinging hammers and the bricks and sticks and putting up garages and things like that and didn't get paid much. You know, he'd throw me 20 bucks at the end of the day, which felt great, you know, you had fun building things and then you know, it kind of I left that industry obviously I wasn't in it, you know as a as an employee or even thinking about it.   But I got my feet wet there, went to college, I studied finance and econ at DePaul, I got a job at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange when I was about 19 years old, and I was a runner, and that's kind of the lowest position you can hold down there and I loved it, I thought it was amazing. It was just like nothing I'd ever been exposed to and I pushed all my classes tonight and started what I'll call my first career at a very young age and again, I didn't realize that was my career. But I'd stayed in there for seven or eight years till I got an opportunity to trade at the age of 27. So I've worked my way up from a, from a runner to a clerk to a broker and it really didn't love anything I was doing and I wanted to try my hand at trading and I and I got an opportunity and it turns out, I was pretty good at it. So I did that for nine years and ended up just building more wealth than I had ever set out to and when I was done with my career, I was married, I had two kids, I had another one on way on the way my risk profile had changed and I literally decided I don't want to do this anymore. I don't want to be leveraging myself 300 to one every day, and have you know, like be always faced with the potential for a four or five standard deviation because the bigger you get trading, you know, those moves can wipe you out and I've seen guys literally, you know, like lose everything in these moves. So I punched out of that career and oh five, I stayed home for about three months and I think my wife thought I was retired at that time. So I quickly you know, I sort of started at what I'll call a family office.   But I also enrolled in the Masters of Science program at DePaul, right to really retool, I knew this is where I wanted to go into real estate to grow my wealth to build passive income because when you get out of one career and I know a lot of people out there are in the same boat you have your asset rich, but you're kind of income poor and how do you turn your assets in income? How do you do it in a very tax efficient manner and real estate is one of the greatest avenues to be able to do that and I never loved the stock market bonds didn't pay enough and figured like, you know, my partner and I got together in oh seven. Candidly, we didn't have a lot of great experiences out there investing our own capital and we just said, look, we can do better than this. Like let's do it together, let's pool our money. Let's build something together and we did and that's what it was in the beginning hanging it started out with the two of us. In oh seven, we syndicated a couple of deals in 0809 started building the high net worth, investor base launched our first fund and 11 launched the next one and 13, the next one in 16 and so today, we, you know, we have four open funds, we've closed for funds, we have close to 3000 High Net Worth investors, two and a half billion dollars in assets under, you know, equity assets, which is the total value of the real estate and it you know, we're considered a top decile manager for all of our performance. So it's been a fantastic run, that's probably a lot more than he wanted in this this quick. But, you know, it's hard to condense all that. Because I think the story from how I started to how I got here sometimes doesn't connect unless I share those early days with you   Michael: No, it's so so good. So I just curious, Michael, you started with multifamily, or that's kind of where you ended up?   Michael E.: It's more or less where we ended up where we gravitated towards and in in, 0708. I mean, you can think of us more like a family office, we were two guys trying to put our money into real estate and we're buying deals and at that time, were buying distressed notes. The world looked very different, though, in a way that in oh eight, capital had all the leverage, everything was trading. So far below replacement costs, we were buying bank loans, and it was more of a pricing exercise which fit perfectly for us because we wanted to protect our wealth, we wanted to manage it, we were looking for big edge in the market and that was the way that you were able to find it and when we launched our first fund in 2011, the dead space and sort of dried up right the distress that and throughout that entire exercise of buying debt, what we really gravitated towards was value add buying things cheap, fixing them up adding value and so that's what our first fund was about. But it was really agnostic in terms of asset class. So we did everything from industrial, retail, multifamily, even student housing in that and then fun two was a little bit narrow or fun two was multifamily office and industrial fun, fun three was office and multifamily and today we've sort of narrowed the world down to multifamily only and the reason is, is what I talked about earlier is that in the beginning capital had all the leverage and then as you as the world normalized, and things started a trade at or above replacement costs, you really have to understand how to win at margins and the only way to do that is by setting up operations in a way where you can, you can buy at scale that you know every penny nickel dime and when you're pricing things like you are true experts and for us as a as an investment firm, just making sure that all of our technology, our people have that institutional knowledge and they can bring it with them every day and it's hard to do that if you know, if you're as big as Blackstone, you can have these massive divisions that are huge companies in themselves. But for a company like us, I can't look people in the eye and say, yeah, we're the best at industrial and we're the best at student housing and in and we're the best at multifamily and what I love about the real estate market, it really is dynamic, and we say market, but what do you mean by that? When you say the market? Is it self-storage? Is it you know, multifamily? Is it industrial? Is it ground up? Is it value add is that the dead space and I just you know there is I guess what we would quote unquote, call a market out there. But there's so many different avenues that you have to choose where you want to play and there's no wrong answer, you can make money anywhere in this market.   Michael: Love it and Michael, you've mentioned this concept twice now and I want to come back to it for our listeners that might not be familiar with it. But you said that it was cheaper to build or you are buying value buying properties at less than replacement cost. What does that mean and why is that impactful?   Michael E.: Well, if you think about the Great Recession, what came out of there, prices reset everywhere and one of the governor's in real estate investing is replacement costs generally as you bump up against it and you go, you know, above replacement costs new supply is going to come in, because of the fundamentals. If you can build for a multifamily project, when we do a lot of this for $270,000 a unit, you'd rather build in that case, then go out and buy something that's 10 years old for $300,000 a unit right, eventually, the fundamentals prevail. What came out of oh eight is that the market was so distressed that if you if the market, you know properties that were 357 years old, even 20 years old, we're training 50% of replacement costs 40% of replacement costs in some cases. I mean it was we were buying some class C we don't operate in that today but some of those deals were too good to pass up where we buying, you know in the Atlanta market $15,000 a unit, where if you were trying to build brand new even back then those would have been 150 $180,000 per unit, they were a little bit on the rougher side, you know, so replacement cost is maybe a little bit, you know, not a play there. But when you're buying buildings, 10 years old at, you know, half the value of replacement costs, and you can lease those up. You know, that is, that's a great way, kind of a barometer to, you know, when you're out there investing money and when the market is trading like that, especially what happened in 09-10 11, no shovels went into the ground for years. Because why would you build brand new when you can buy something that is a few years old at such a discount to what you can build for today, because ultimately, if you build, you have to get rents that support those higher costs and so we were really well protected at that time. But the market ultimately caught up and then we saw building start to take off in certain markets and in the higher growth markets that were under supplied in 12 right, that that was the very early stage of development, and then 13, a little more, 14 a little bit more and, and then it's taken off and today because the market is so under supplied. You see a tremendous amount of new construction happening across both single family rentals, or single family homes and multifamily.   Michael: Yeah, it's so interesting, and it just out of curiosity, how long do you think it's going to take to get caught up before we see kind of a more equilibrium?   Michael E.: It's got to be two to three years, I mean, the supply chain logistics COVID set us back. But right now, we need to deliver about 500,000 units a year just to keep up with current demand and we're delivering about 300,000 units of current demand. So between single family homes and apartments, we're still way under supplied on both sides and what's interesting right now, that's going on in the multifamily side is that a lot of millennials are trapped renting, because we all know what's going on with the interest rate side. Well, the it definitely the financing costs hurt us. But what's helping is that it's actually driving demand for apartments, because Millennials can no longer afford to buy a house. Because even as much as construction prices have come up for the projects that we've been building, it's 35% more today than it was 18 months ago, that calculus holds true. Also, for single family homes, you add on top of that mortgage rates, 30 year mortgage rates that have gone from 3% to 5% they've gone up 70% in the last year, millions and millions of individuals can no longer afford to buy a house and are stuck renting. So that's really creating these kind of anomalies in the market right now. They'll eventually work their way out and that's why from our perspective, you want to own quality, you want to own newer, you don't want to be, you know, chasing something, I think that those who are buying existing properties today above replacement costs, there's a short runway to make money, and then and then you're gonna see the water settle.   Michael: Interesting, okay and so what would you say to newer investors that are running up against that issue, they're going to look at the properties, where the prices are, where the cap rates are, and they're getting their insurance quotes, and they're seeing this disconnect between the replacement cost and the purchase price how do you what do you say to those folks?   Michael E.: Tread lightly in those situations, because here's the thing, everything works on paper and when you look at historical norms, they all look great. But ultimately, the fundamentals do prevail and this is why we're not in the value add space today. We haven't been in for two years. Now certainly that's been a mistake. Anybody who was buying value add deals pre 2020 did very well. But we started to see this metric where at that time replacement cost was obviously a lot lower, we didn't realize that it was going to be 50% higher in two and a half years. But the math just didn't work out. We're like, wait, why should we be buying this 20 year old property at 220,000 a door when we you know when and we're going to put another $20,000 into it when we can build for 232 to 40, right, something similar? And we started getting sort of queasy about it then. But the thing that you everybody needs to understand is yes, there are times that if you have barriers to entry, and you're an urban markets, and you know there are times that you can buy above replacement costs and you will do fine. But when the world normalizes in 234 years, if you're a long term holder, and you have more and more and more supply that comes into the market, and it will, that older product is going to be the first to suffer. So if you're paying 20% above replacement cost today, and in five years from now, buyers have the choice of buying brand new properties at replacement costs or your property that's going to be 10 to 15 years old, then dd above that, they're not going to choose those. Right. So that works itself out over time. It's just today what we're seeing distortions in the market and distortions are not good and it's okay. Like one of the lessons I learned very early on is one of the best words you can learn investing is no, like, let it go, you know, there's always going to be another bus that comes by. So, you know, that's why I say I say tread lightly. We're treading, like, we're not in that market at all, we have completely exited, buying existing properties, Core Plus value add, because it's just not a good risk reward in today's market, in my opinion.   Michael: Interesting and it makes total sense. Michael, I want to shift gears here like entirely, as we were talking about, before we hit record, the market is super-hot prices are sky high and so I think a lot of people are thinking, well, is now a good time to sell and if they are on that bandwagon thinking is a good time to sell, where should they be thinking about placing their money, and I'm talking specifically about opportunity zones and a 1031 exchange. So we'd love if you could talk a little bit about where people should be thinking about placing some of their gains?   Michael E.: Yeah, it's a, it's a little bit of a crystal ball, I can I'll tell you what we're doing. So in our legacy funds we are selling. We've been net sellers the last year, but we also have funds where we are more of a buy and hold strategy and markets behave in weird ways and I'll give you an example. If I would have told you two years ago, hey, guess what there is a there's a pandemic coming and the world is going to shut down and Russia is going to invade Ukraine and the 10 year note is going to you know, rally from you know, this rate to this rate. Would you have bought real estate? No, you would have put your head in the sand would you want to sell… you wouldn't you wouldn't jump, hey, listen, I got this crystal ball, I see all these bad things on the horizon, I'm going to jump into this. So I don't, I don't ever think that people should panic. If you have great real estate, the idea is that you want to buy quality, you want to be adequately leveraged so that you can make it to the other side and the thing about owning real estate is that if you want the real benefits of owning real estate, you have to own it for the long term and the people who I know who got really wealthy in real estate, they bought it and held it and the people I know got really wealthy in stocks, they bought it and held it all these day traders, these flippers, things like that they're just churning money constantly paying taxes making a little bit, it's a good living. But I would say real wealth is created by buying and holding quality assets for ever and that's what you have to remember in real estate to that depreciation. You can't get depreciation, if you sell the asset. You can't take advantage of that, that tax free income. You can't take advantage of refinancing tax free if you sell the asset, right. It's only if you hold it, let it appreciate and there's so many reasons, you know, to hold long term because as expensive as everything is today, it's going to be more expensive in five years and 10 years and 15 years and if you study what's going on, especially in the multifamily market, or even the housing market, there's been no period in history over a 10 year period, where multifamily real estate has lost money institutional real estate, and even through the Great Recession, oh eight no nine. I mean, we were almost fully recovered by 2012 on the multifamily side. So you know, like buy quality real estate, hold it for a while now, you asked the question, if you're going to sell it, you know, 1031 I don't know like with the 1031. If you're actually you're selling an existing property, you're buying an existing property. Certainly there are 1030 ones, there's ways to reduce risks, there's ways to reduce headache. You know, buying some of these triple net mailbox money retail properties is always pretty simple to do versus trying to be an active landlord. We do run QC funds. I know a lot of investors who can't find 1031 Exchange properties, they've been coming into our funds as an alternative. And the difference there is QC the way the law is made up is it requires us to build brand new so we are diversified across high growth cities in the Sunbelt markets places like Nashville and Atlanta and Tampa and Phoenix and Dallas and Austin and places like that. So building brand new radio, like getting in at a cost basis is I think a safer way to invest today and I know that might sound like an oxymoron go into construction to actually have you know less risk what are you talking about, but I will write like I would way rather build a brand new property and be in it for 250-260 door than go out and buy something that's three years old for 400,000 a door. Did I answer your question, Michael? That was a very long… Yeah…   Michael: No, no, it's great, it's great. Well, I'm curious if you could define for people what is a QC because I think a lot of our listeners might not be familiar with the term.   Michael E.: Sure, a qualified opportunity zone qualified opportunity funds came out of the 2017 tax cuts and Jobs Act and it was there at 700 QC areas around the countries and these are maps essentially, of low to moderate income areas, some of them have been adjusted by governors in each state. But really what it allows you to do, if you have capital gains from any source, it can be from stocks, it can be from appreciated art, it can be from a home, you sell an investment property, it doesn't matter. So if you invest into a you QZ fund today, right, let's say you have taxes due for 2021 and you have a million dollar gain, if you invest in a QC fund today, you don't have to pay those until 2027 because that's when you will recognize those on your tax return for tax year 2026. So there's a huge deferral, and there's a value to that deferral because it's basically a zero interest rate loan from the United States government and during that period, you your money is working for you in ground up development in deals, things like that. But you ultimately have to pay the piper, you know, come 2027. The other benefit that is phenomenal about this program, if you're in the program for 10 years, and one day, if you're invested in a qualified opportunity's own fund, you Pay Zero Taxes on the game. So if you double, triple, quadruple your money, you pay zero taxes, and you can be in this program for 10,20,30 years, our Fund is designed with optionality, you want to get out in 10 years, you can get out you want to get out in 30 years, you can get out. So this is a place where I'll tell you, I don't think there's any place better to invest, if you have capital gains, and you want to be in the real estate, because when you run the math, you have to earn about 50 to 75% more in a non QC investment to get the same after tax return. So it's exciting, I'm certainly putting a tremendous amount of money into our funds, my partner is as well, but it's one of the best programs that has come about in a while and Michael, the last thing I'll say about it, you know, I mentioned moderate to low income neighborhoods. The caveat to that, like were we sort of searches along the edges and those maps are drawn based on the 2010 census. If you think about how much cities have changed since 2010, many of them have changed drastically and I'll give you an example Nashville. We're in Nashville right now, there's an area called the Gulch and if you were in Nashville in 2010, there was nothing in the downtown area and it was only in about 2012-13-14 that you began to see multifamily residential real estate take off. But before that, it was almost a see through city you could see from one end to the other. Now today, it looks like downtown Denver, it is insane. I took a trip with my son this summer, we drove through there again and I was looking at some of our sites and our properties, didn't even recognize it. Because the last time I was there was three years ago and it looks like I mean, you know, something they build in China, it was going up so quickly, right? They're building these cities in like a matter of a days and that's what's going to Nashville. The point is, there's all of that is considered a ques area and those are the areas that were looking and you wouldn't know the difference between a QoC area and a market rate area, because to us accuse a good future development is just a good development. There's no qualifier to it   Michael: Interesting and so how do people? How are people able to find out and take advantage of TOC funds? Is it Do I just Google QoC II fund Nashville and I'll find them?   Michael E.: Exactly, I mean, you can there's a tremendous amount of information out there and I would recommend anybody who wants to go, who's active, they should be doing this in accuser area, and looking at the areas in your neighborhood because it'd be silly like, you know, we have some QoC projects where across the street is market rate development. Now, those are pension funds, institutions that are building those, so they don't care about the QoC benefits. They only endure to taxable investors. But if you're a taxable investor, you absolutely need to understand this area because to me, it's the best place to gain real estate exposure. You know, so, hands down.   Michael: I love it. All right, Michael, the last question that I have for you today is curious to get your thoughts about inflation and where things are going and how people should be thinking about it and how you at origin are thinking about it?   Michael E.: Well, inflation is real. First of all, we've seen this there's nothing transit worry about it. At some point, it will run through the system. I don't know when that is, we watched the yield curve constantly, some people are calling it inverted, it's more flat today than anything and if you if you kind of go out in the yield curve, and you look past 23, and 24, it looks like rates are going to remain high until that period and then maybe start coming down. But I just don't see that it can say, sustained at this level and I think once China fully comes back online, we take care of a lot of these supply issues. I think what we have to really be concerned about today, and this would not be a good situation is deflation and more and more, I'm reading about that in the market. Deflation is not good, where you have a continued rise in your expenses and things like that, but your demand slows down and you can't raise rents anymore, and your equation just flips a lot. That wouldn't be really good for any investments out there and I'm not saying that it's going to happen. But it's definitely more of a risk today than it has been in the past. A lot of these inflationary pressures, they will you know, get solved over time and right now, it's a difficult period to invest, especially when we're building a brand new ground up multifamily development, and we're trying to get to a guaranteed maximum price contract. It's challenging, because even oftentimes, the general contractor won't fix prices, they won't fix lumber. So we have to leave and by the way, sometimes we're happy doing that we're like, look, we don't want to lock in lumber at $1,700 a board foot, we just don't think it is we'll underwrite to that scenario, we'll leave it out and that's a place where sometimes we can actually have savings in a project like that and certainly, in a market like this today, it would be great to see inflation sort of add for us to be able to, you know, get to a normal place. But it's making it a lot more difficult to do business. I have a friend who runs a lumber company, and he said they used to quote people and they used to have these quotes out for three months at a time and now at the top of it when they quote people 24 hours, they gotta get back to them and I don't think that's a healthy environment for anybody being there's too much volatility. But I would, you know, from an interest rate perspective, we're, it's moving up. I mean, today, it's over 290. Today, I think with interest rates, or with inflation running above 8% it's kind of surprising, it's not at four or five, but I also think that that's kind of a sign to come that inflation will run through that we're seeing these prices sort of top out, we're gonna see some of these supply chain issues, get solved and you'll see 23 late 23, early 24 probably rates come back down, hopefully to you know, 2% or below.   Michael: Okay, I've got my fingers crossed for that too. Michael, this has been super informative, a lot of fun if people want to learn more about you or origin investments, what's the best way for them to do that and get in contact?   Michael E.: Yeah, so just go to our website https://origininvestments.com/, we make it really easy for people to learn about us engage in our content, download our decks things like that or connect with somebody at origin we have a little pop up there we use but you can also just register and then somebody will reach out to you as well, so…   Michael: Sweet.

This week I'm re-airing my episode with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, where we discussed how to cope when your partner has an active addiction. Dr. Elizabeth Cohen helps people get a little more comfortable with something as painful as addiction and divorce. When you're living with or divorcing a partner who has an active addiction, you may find yourself acting out different behaviors including the need to control every situation. You may become (or already be!) codependent, and you focus on their healing instead of your own. When you finally take the focus off of them and towards yourself you can begin to see light at the end of what may be a very dark tunnel. Show Highlights When women share themselves openly and honestly, the world begins to split open (9:21) Focusing on your growth and healing is how we change our circumstances (11:06) Sublimating your own needs for someone else (23:00) Breaking the cycle of codependency (24:15) The core issue about a person abusing any substance is the difficulty sitting with emotions (34:41) A partner should never be responsible for healing the other (38:36) Some advice for those who are living with an active addict (47:33) Learn More About Dr. Cohen: Dr. Cohen is the CEO and founder of the online divorce course and membership Afterglow: The Light at the Other Side of Divorce.

Jamie Varon's writing has been seen across the internet for over a decade, from her early days of personal blogging all the way to features in publications such as Teen Vogue, HuffPost, GOOD, Complex, and many more. Over the years, both her long-form essays and short-form prose have garnered millions of reads and views, using her signature style of combining personal story with universal themes. Jamie also shares her thoughts on building a life you really love with her many followers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@jamievaron). In addition to her writing, she has a long-standing career as a branding expert, course creator, and graphic designer. Jamie lives in Calabasas, California.   In this episode we discuss: What "radically content" means to author Jamie as well as why she named her book about finding happiness in your everyday life. How society has taught us that we need to "earn" our happiness, "earn" our relaxation, and what to do about that. Achievement DOES NOT equal happiness! Nor does it determine your worth! Why you don't need permission to feel good enough or happy, you are good enough. How messages in society such as "the summer body" subtly tell us we can't enjoy life or be happy unless we have/do X. How to truly enjoy the journey and celebrate the small wins. How you can change your relationship with social media and use it as a positive influence. What does success mean to you? Does it mean hustling hard to the point you have no one and no energy to celebrate with? Does the degree of success determine your "worth" to society? or to yourself? The importance of feeling and being curious about your emotions as a tool to heal.   Buy Jamie's book, Radically Content: https://radicallycontent.com   Connect with Jamie: https://jamievaron.com https://instagram.com/jamievaron https://facebook.com/jamievaron   ++++++ Calmly Coping is a self-improvement podcast for overthinkers who struggle with high-functioning anxiety to help you feel more calm, balanced, and confident. ++++++   *** WORK WITH ME *** My mission is to help you decrease your anxiety, declutter your mind, and say hello to a life of calm and balance.  Learn more about my coaching and course offerings below. https://becalmwithtati.com/work-with-me   *** JOIN THE CALMLY COPING GROUP *** The free supportive community for high-achievers with high-functioning anxiety.

As of this year, the total outstanding federal student loan debt is over $1.7 trillion, which is collectively held by around 46 million borrowers. Even with temporary, pandemic-related pauses on student loan repayments, the debt crisis continues to worsen, and calls for complete debt cancellation continue to mount. On April 4, as part of a national day of action, members and allies of the Debt Collective, a debtor's union, demonstrated outside of the Department of Education in Washington, DC, demanding that President Biden issue an Executive Order to cancel all student loan debt. In this installment of The Marc Steiner Show, Marc speaks with Ami Schneider, one of the debt strikers who attended the demonstration in DC, about the growing movement to undo the colossal policy failure that created the student debt crisis.Ami Schneider is an organizer and debt striker with the Debt Collective who holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Art Institute.

I get so many questions about the difficult situation of overcoming the anxiety around having to see humans when your body has changed size. It feels like almost everyone is (or at some point in time, will be) dealing with this obstacle. Even if our weight stays the same during our lives, our bodies will change in other ways and so talking through this very real anxiety is super important. In today's episode let me give you a pep talk so we can live our lives and not be consumed with thoughts of “but people are going to judge me negatively so I should hideaway.” Episode show notes: http://www.fiercefatty.com/121 Free Training: The 4 Simple Steps to Feel Confident in Your Body and Around Food ...
