Welcome back, Explorers! Taylor and Rob have an exciting set of topics for your consideration this month. The episode begins with a great discussion on some Microsoft news featuring updates to products we've had whole episodes about in the past – Teams, Yammer, and Viva. From there your hosts sit down with author and MBG Collaboration Architect Jason Rivera to discuss his new book from O'Reilly, "Building Solutions with the Microsoft Power Platform" (available wherever fine technology books are sold, we imagine).

Gwinnett County police are investigating the death of a teen who was found dead on Paden Mill Trail in unincorporated Lawrenceville. The 16-year-old male's body was found at about 1:05 p.m. behind a house located at 651 Paden Mill Trail. Police discovered the body while visiting the house to conduct a follow up on a missing person's case that they were investigating. The teen had been shot. Anyone who has information about the teen's death is asked to call detectives or Crime Stoppers, which lets tipsters remain anonymous. Please head to Gwinnett Daily Post dot com for more updates. The Georgia Department of Education recently released the list of AP Honors Schools — with 23 Gwinnett County public high schools making one or more of the lists. Several Gwinnett schools were recognized in more than one category. Paul Duke STEM High School and Mountain View High School made the list in all seven categories in which they are eligible while Archer, Brookwood, Dacula, Duluth, Grayson, Lanier, and Mountain View high schools made the list in six of the seven categories in which they are eligible. DeNelle West, Gwinnett County Public Schools' Chief Learning Officer, says the recognition is a testament to the dedication of the district's educators. AP exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning at the high school level. Students who earn a 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam may receive college credit. The 2023 AP Honor Schools were named in eight categories, based on the results of 2022 AP courses and exams. Please head over to Gwinnett Daily Post dot com for a full list of schools and honors. The Sip & Swine BBQ Festival not only touts some of the best Kansas City-style barbecue in America, but it also impacts the future in extremely positive ways. The festival is set Friday and Saturday at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville. More than 100 professional and shade-tree barbecue competitors from 12 states and two continents will vie for the coveted People's Choice Tasting award in an event sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society. Admission and parking are free for the two-day porcine extravaganza, which will also feature some 80 craft vendors and 40 food vendors. Now in its eighth year, the Sip & Swine BBQ Festival was originally established as a fundraiser for Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children's Shelter in Buford. Home of Hope is focused on ending homelessness two generations at a time, providing service for homeless infants and children up to 17 years old, along with their young mothers. The nonprofit also aids teenagers aging out of the foster care system. The festival has grown to feature bands, crafts and family-friendly activities, and this year's event is expected to be the largest to date. Proceeds from competition and vendor fees, raffle ticket sales and the purchase of People's Choice Taster Kits all go Home of Hope. Thus far, the festival has raised $742,000 on behalf of the children's shelter. For more information about the Sip & Swine BBQ Festival, visit Sips and Swine dot com.

Maybe he's buying comic books at Galactic Quest before heading over to Strange Taco for dinner?  We'll leave that to the pundits, both inside and outside the peanut gallery, to debate. Regardless of whether you believe in aliens or not, Lawrenceville has notched a Number 1 ranking on what some people might consider a weird list: the most likely places in America to see a UFO. According to BonusFinder.com, you have a higher chance of seeing strange objects in the sky over Lawrenceville than you are in the skies over places such as Sedona, Arizona, and Greenville, South Carolina (which came in at Numbers 2 and 3 on the list, respectively), or the state capitol of Pennsylvania — Harrisburg — which is Number 4 on the list. BonusFinder.com ranked cities based on how many sightings there have been for every 10,000 residents rather than total number of sightings. Sedona, with 96 sightings, would be Number 1 if the latter criteria were the determining factor since Lawrenceville only had 67 sightings. But, it's sightings per capita that determined the rankings, and Lawrenceville — which is home to Gwinnett County Airport at Briscoe Field by the way — was Number 1 in that regard. The city reached the top spot with 144.64 alleged sightings per 10,000 people, according to BonusFinder.com. The sightings lasted, on average, 15.47 minutes.  Lanier High School has earned the College Board AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science A. Schools honored with the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have achieved 50% or higher female exam taker representation in one or both AP computer science courses, or a percentage of female computer science exam takers that meet or exceed that of the school's female population. Sallie Holloway, Gwinnett County Public Schools' Director of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science, says the award is an acknowledgement of Lanier High School's commitment to inclusivity. More than 1,100 institutions achieved either 50% or higher female representation in one of the two AP computer science courses or a percentage of the female computer science exam takers meeting or exceeding that of the school's female population during the 2021-22 school year. In 2022, Lanier High School was one of 209 schools recognized in the category of AP CSA, and the only school in Gwinnett County to be recognized. Lanier has worked with its partner, State Farm IT, and the cluster schools to create a culture that supports more diversity in computing and other STEM fields and are seeing the fruits of this labor. Beyond the College Board recognition, Lanier High has always been well-represented at the National Center for Women & Information Technology local and national awards. The school regularly sees dozens of girls recognized at the Georgia awards ceremony. Additionally, Lanier has had five girls recognized nationally, including a national honorable mention for Valentina Diaz Romero and national winner Makenna Reilly for 2023 In its long and distinguished history, Buford High School has won untold state championships in just about every sport. And now the time has come to make some room on the school's trophy display for the school's latest state crown. On February 24, Buford's Game Day Cheerleading squad won the Class AAAAAA state championship at Columbus State College. It was the team's first state title in its four-year history. Co-Coach Caroline Parker said the competition – which began with 16 teams in the preliminary round and had eight in the final round – called on squads to showcase their skills in band chant, a crowd-leading cheer, and a routine that accompanies their school's fight song. The 24-member squad – which was selected last April – is made up of cheerleaders for the Wolves' football and basketball games. Now that they know just exactly what it takes to win a state championship, the next season will serve as a lesson on how to effectively defend that championship. There were six seniors on the 2023 team and Parker said she was pleased they were graduating on such a high note. And those involved will get to take a brief break, although it won't be long before the title defense begins, as tryouts begin in three weeks.

In this episode, we speak with Steve Lipner, Executive Director of Safe Code, and Karen Worstell, VMWare Cyber Strategist. They discuss the new scale of DevSecOps, secure code, and safely adopting new technologies. Karen describes how modern operating environments differ from older ones, and the concerns involved with quickening development cycles. Steve explains the work of his nonprofit, Safe Code, and the importance of integrating security with a development cycle. They also discuss the future of cloud infrastructure and get into the benefits and possible pitfalls of Chat GPT.---------Key Quotes:Karen "What's really really different? The type of code we're writing has changed. The operating environment that we're pushing it into has changed. And the time cycle has really changed. It's a concern, to be honest. It's a benefit, but it's also something that worries people."Karen“The cycle has revved up tremendously and it's changed the way we work. So DevSecOps basically means that you've got this development cycle and then you've got the operations of it on an ongoing basis.”Steve "The role of the security team is to help organize, train, and equip so that the developers have the right processes, the right training. They know what a security bug looks like and why you don't want to have one. And the right equipment, the right tools to tell them when they need to do something differently and what to do about it."Steve "If you want a thousand person security team, then the way to do that is  to do all the audits and all the testing, and all the security reviews and all the compliance after the fact. If you want secure software out there this afternoon, the responsibility for building secure software has to be with the developers.  The role of the security team is to help organize, train, and equip so that the developers have the right processes, the right training."Karen:“I think the truth of it is that in the technology world, where we're surrounded by new technology, and we're used to that cycle of new technology evolution and adopting it like early adopters, we can get out over the skis when it comes to the rest of the world…Technical debt is our biggest risk, my opinion.”---------Time stamps:(02:45) What DevSecOps means(04:40) Leveraging DevSecOps as a leader(08:20) The development cycle's acceleration (10:05) Safe Code's mission(10:55) Old dev cycles vs. new ones(12:05) Building a secure development model(14:50) Difficulties behind a security push(17:40) Recognizing the importance of security pushes(19:55) Exploring the move to cloud(21:00) How the modern world adopts new technology(24:00) The risks of AI acceleration (30:05) Where to connect with Karen and Steve---------Links:Steve's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/steve-lipner/Steve's website: https://www.stevelipner.org/Steve on Twitter: https://twitter.com/lipner?lang=enKaren's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/karenworstell/CIO Exchange on Twitter: https://twitter.com/vmwcioexchangeYadin Porter de León on Twitter: https://twitter.com/porterdeleon [Subscribe to the Podcast] On Apple Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/cio-exchange-podcast/id1498290907 For more podcasts, video and in-depth research go to https://www.vmware.com/cio---------Keywords: cio, cio exchange, VMware, innovation, leadership, IT, information technology, technology, cto, cloud, multi-cloud, security, devops, devsecops, artificial intelligence, machine learning, AI, Chat GPT, development cycles, technology leadership, AI security

Increasing datacenter density while managing HVAC and electrical costs is a hard problem, especially as processor and GPU vendors continue to push solutions that run hotter and consume more energy than ever before. This has pushed us into the age of liquid cooling. While Direct-2-Chip liquid cooling has become an acceptable alternative to the traditional air-cooled datacenter, cooling technology has evolved. The state-of-the-art is now 2-Phase Immersion Cooling, where servers are housed in an enclosure full of a dialelectric fluid that removes the heat, all without fans or heatsinks. It's a remarkable technology. In this episode, hosts Matt Kimball and Steve McDowell talk to the Mears Group, a Quanta Services company, about its approach to 2-Phase Immersion Cooling which is just coming to market. Joining the podcast are Todd Richard, senior vice president at Mears, and Trent Edwards, executive vice president of Mears. The group talk about what 2-Phase Immersion Cooling is, how it has benefits both within the datacenter at the edge, and what differentiates Mears.

As this tax season proceeds ever forward, many investors are asking themselves the same question - “am I going to take a large tax-hit this year?” We cannot say how much you'll be taxed on your present investments.

This is your host Tom Romano. 2 00:00:10.800 --> 00:00:13.800  I want to welcome you all back. We have a very 3 00:00:13.800 --> 00:00:17.100  interesting topic to discuss with you today. It's 4 00:00:16.100 --> 00:00:19.400  the notion of investors keeping more money in 5 00:00:19.400 --> 00:00:22.900  their pockets by bringing tax management into 6 00:00:22.900 --> 00:00:25.300  their investment Holdings. Not only are 7 00:00:25.300 --> 00:00:28.200  we going to talk about tax management, but some of the things investors should 8 00:00:28.200 --> 00:00:31.200  be considering in terms of how they view Capital markets how they should be 9 00:00:31.200 --> 00:00:34.400  investing and then we have a couple of special guests 10 00:00:34.400 --> 00:00:38.000  to talk about some additional strategies that investors should 11 00:00:37.400 --> 00:00:40.700  consider in terms of bringing tax 12 00:00:40.700 --> 00:00:43.700  Alpha if you will to the table so joining 13 00:00:43.700 --> 00:00:46.100  us is Phil McDonald who is the 14 00:00:46.100 --> 00:00:49.400  president of the panoramic trust and managing director of 15 00:00:49.400 --> 00:00:52.700  research of symmetry Partners as well as Glenn Shirley 16 00:00:52.700 --> 00:00:55.700  who is a principal and head of investor relations 17 00:00:55.700 --> 00:00:58.200  at quantino Capital Management Glen and 18 00:00:58.200 --> 00:01:01.500  Phil. Thank you so much for joining us here today. Thanks for having me tone. Thanks Tom. 19 00:01:01.500 --> 00:01:01.800  It's great. 20 00:01:01.900 --> 00:01:04.900 be with you, you know at quantino 100% of 21 00:01:04.900 --> 00:01:07.200  our focus is on taxable investors and 22 00:01:07.900 --> 00:01:10.500 We're managing portfolios while also seeking 23 00:01:10.500 --> 00:01:13.300  to generate really consistent and strong tax benefits 24 00:01:13.300 --> 00:01:16.800  for clients. And that goal is to maximize their 25 00:01:16.800 --> 00:01:19.400  after-tax wealth to help them keep as much return as possible 26 00:01:19.400 --> 00:01:22.200  year to year and we couldn't be more thrilled to partner with Symmetry and 27 00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:25.200  the incredible advisors that you serve. So thanks 28 00:01:25.200 --> 00:01:28.300  for having us pleasure to have you both. I look forward 29 00:01:28.300 --> 00:01:31.300  to to the today's dialogue. Sometimes taxes aren't the 30 00:01:31.300 --> 00:01:34.300  most interesting topic. However, I think that 31 00:01:34.300 --> 00:01:37.300  there's some very important information that investors should 32 00:01:37.300 --> 00:01:40.700  be considering in terms of how they invest their assets. And 33 00:01:40.700 --> 00:01:43.000  so thank you both for joining us. There's a couple 34 00:01:43.100 --> 00:01:46.100  of different angles. I want to take this conversation, right? And the first 35 00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:49.000  one I think I want to to go towards is 36 00:01:50.100 --> 00:01:53.500 Specific investment philosophies, right? So Phil we adhere 37 00:01:53.500 --> 00:01:57.300  to what we refer to as an evidence-based investment philosophy allowing 38 00:01:56.300 --> 00:01:59.200  markets to produce the returns that 39 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:03.300  are investors are entitled to at the end of the day. So talk 40 00:02:02.300 --> 00:02:05.700  to us a little bit from a tax standpoint 41 00:02:05.700 --> 00:02:08.200  the benefits of an evidence-based investment 42 00:02:08.200 --> 00:02:09.500  philosophy versus 43 00:02:10.500 --> 00:02:13.500 Paying for Alpha or active 44 00:02:13.500 --> 00:02:16.600  money management. Mm-hmm. No, you raise a erase. 45 00:02:16.600 --> 00:02:19.700  Very good point Tom. So our investment philosophy all 46 00:02:19.700 --> 00:02:22.800  often refer to it as multi-factor investing. It 47 00:02:22.800 --> 00:02:27.300  involves specific rules quantitative indicators 48 00:02:26.300 --> 00:02:29.800  that research for 49 00:02:29.800 --> 00:02:32.100  a very long time has indicated, you know 50 00:02:32.100 --> 00:02:35.400  might create a premium over time. So following, you know, 51 00:02:35.400 --> 00:02:38.900  a value and small and momentum and high quality 52 00:02:38.900 --> 00:02:41.600  High profitability type of strategy you might 53 00:02:41.600 --> 00:02:44.700  expect to do a little bit better than just a cap weighted 54 00:02:44.700 --> 00:02:47.300  index over time what you get with 55 00:02:47.300 --> 00:02:50.900  that again is, you know, rules-based very Diversified. So 56 00:02:50.900 --> 00:02:53.700  for the most part low turnover right there, 57 00:02:53.700 --> 00:02:56.300  there are there are some strategies that have 58 00:02:56.300 --> 00:02:59.000  a little turnover specifically momentum. You probably have a little 59 00:02:59.100 --> 00:03:02.600  bit higher turnover than a market capitalization way to index but 60 00:03:02.600 --> 00:03:05.600  generally speaking, you know, these signals are relatively slow 61 00:03:05.600 --> 00:03:08.500  moving you're very diverseified. Each holding is 62 00:03:08.500 --> 00:03:10.200  a small percentage of your portfolio. 63 00:03:10.700 --> 00:03:13.300 So for the most part, you don't have to turn over 64 00:03:13.300 --> 00:03:16.400  the portfolio very often. You don't have to trade a lot sell a 65 00:03:16.400 --> 00:03:19.200  lot to reposition into the into the next 66 00:03:19.200 --> 00:03:22.700  Holdings you would want. I mentioned momentum alone has has a 67 00:03:22.700 --> 00:03:25.900  higher turnover as an individual strategy. There are 68 00:03:25.900 --> 00:03:29.100  benefits in putting it together with other factors specifically 69 00:03:28.100 --> 00:03:31.100  momentum and value work very well 70 00:03:31.100 --> 00:03:35.000  together because they're negatively correlated and in the same portfolio, 71 00:03:34.600 --> 00:03:37.000  the the turnover momentum can be 72 00:03:37.600 --> 00:03:41.000  somewhat counteracted in reduced by having other factors 73 00:03:40.200 --> 00:03:43.200  in there specifically value. So the 74 00:03:43.200 --> 00:03:46.400  pairing of factors can help with the tax efficiency of 75 00:03:46.400 --> 00:03:49.200  the portfolio, right momentum by definition is a high 76 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:53.100  turnover strategy. Meaning there's a lot of trading right now this 77 00:03:52.100 --> 00:03:55.800  this signal is you know, essentially a year 78 00:03:55.800 --> 00:03:58.300  or so a little less than a year. So you would 79 00:03:58.300 --> 00:04:01.200  expect and that's the 80 00:04:01.200 --> 00:04:04.400  standard kind of academic one year price momentum type of 81 00:04:04.400 --> 00:04:07.700  indicator quantitative rule. So you'd 82 00:04:07.700 --> 00:04:10.400  expect momentum to lead to changes at about 83 00:04:10.800 --> 00:04:14.500 Near Horizon your portfolio, which is especially inconvenient 84 00:04:13.500 --> 00:04:16.300  to with regard to tax 85 00:04:16.300 --> 00:04:19.600  law because you know, you have the short-term long term type of 86 00:04:19.600 --> 00:04:22.300  cap gain consideration as well. Sure. So I 87 00:04:22.300 --> 00:04:25.400  mean we've had a lot of conversations about on this podcast about 88 00:04:25.400 --> 00:04:28.100  a fishing markets diversification Buy and Hold 89 00:04:28.100 --> 00:04:31.600  stay the course, but what I'm hearing you say is that just from a 90 00:04:31.600 --> 00:04:34.500  tax standpoint it almost sounds like it's a convenient byproduct of 91 00:04:34.500 --> 00:04:37.300  it hearing to a buy an old strategy. That's a 92 00:04:37.300 --> 00:04:40.700  great way to think about it and you you mentioned relative to 93 00:04:40.700 --> 00:04:43.400  other strategies. So I want to respond directly to 94 00:04:43.400 --> 00:04:46.300  that as well. So let's just call, you know, 95 00:04:46.300 --> 00:04:49.300  multi-factor Diversified investing as a strategy 96 00:04:49.300 --> 00:04:52.400  and investment philosophy relative to you know, 97 00:04:52.400 --> 00:04:55.800  kind of old-fashioned active management where a 98 00:04:55.800 --> 00:04:58.500  manager is picking and choosing you were stocks 99 00:04:58.500 --> 00:05:02.000  maybe reacting to Market events 100 00:05:01.100 --> 00:05:04.400  making predictions turning the portfolio over, 101 00:05:04.400 --> 00:05:07.400  you know, if you know, each position is about 10% 102 00:05:07.400 --> 00:05:10.100  you know, just selling one position creates a lot 103 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:10.700  of turnover. 104 00:05:10.700 --> 00:05:13.400 Or so typically those actively managed strategies 105 00:05:13.400 --> 00:05:16.500  that are more concentrated and and require more 106 00:05:16.500 --> 00:05:19.300  trading are less tax efficient. Lord know 107 00:05:19.300 --> 00:05:22.800  that absolutely makes sense and Glenn. I know that you share in our 108 00:05:22.800 --> 00:05:25.400  view on how Capital markets work. Do you 109 00:05:25.400 --> 00:05:28.500  care to add anything to fills comments? Well, I think tax laws 110 00:05:28.500 --> 00:05:32.200  harvesting in general is a perfect strategy 111 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:34.600  to use evidence based investing 112 00:05:34.600 --> 00:05:37.100  and I say that because tax laws are 113 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:40.300  visiting at its core is you have names in the portfolio that 114 00:05:40.300 --> 00:05:43.300  are essentially winners. They've appreciated we want 115 00:05:43.300 --> 00:05:45.400  to hold those continue to hold those names. 116 00:05:46.300 --> 00:05:49.700 But you're gonna have stocks that have gone down those stocks 117 00:05:49.700 --> 00:05:52.400  in a really simple example you 118 00:05:52.400 --> 00:05:55.400  would sell but at that moment when you sell that 119 00:05:55.400 --> 00:05:55.700  name. 120 00:05:56.500 --> 00:05:58.300 You have to replace it with another stock. 121 00:05:59.300 --> 00:06:02.600 So at that moment, that's a perfect time to utilize 122 00:06:02.600 --> 00:06:05.200  your evidence-based beliefs. If 123 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:08.100  you want to tilt the portfolio toward cheaper stocks or 124 00:06:08.100 --> 00:06:11.900  stocks with better attributes of quality or profitability. If you 125 00:06:11.900 --> 00:06:14.400  add that in to the stock 126 00:06:14.400 --> 00:06:17.500  selection of replacing that name via, which 127 00:06:17.500 --> 00:06:20.200  you've realized that tax loss then we believe you 128 00:06:20.200 --> 00:06:23.200  can add some nice return Over The Benchmark over 129 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:23.400  time. 130 00:06:24.100 --> 00:06:28.100 So yeah tax loss harvesting and offering after tax improvements 131 00:06:27.100 --> 00:06:30.200  for clients can type very nicely with 132 00:06:30.200 --> 00:06:31.700  evidence-based investing. 133 00:06:32.400 --> 00:06:35.500 Yeah, I think that intentional turnover if you will with 134 00:06:35.500 --> 00:06:39.000  tasks lost harvesting does open up the door for some creativity 135 00:06:38.500 --> 00:06:41.600  is what I'm hearing. You say Glenn in order 136 00:06:41.600 --> 00:06:45.600  of enhancing returns. I mean I've seen in the past people liquidata 137 00:06:44.600 --> 00:06:47.600  position, they might hold cash for 30 138 00:06:47.600 --> 00:06:49.700  days or might replace it with an ETF. 139 00:06:50.700 --> 00:06:53.400 But Glenn what I'm hearing you say is that when that happens, there's 140 00:06:53.400 --> 00:06:54.600  opportunities to be a little bit more. 141 00:06:55.700 --> 00:06:58.900 Creative I guess the word when it comes to reinvesting those 142 00:06:58.900 --> 00:07:01.400  assets special specifically 143 00:07:01.400 --> 00:07:04.500  through a factor lens, right? That's right. And and 144 00:07:04.500 --> 00:07:07.300  I would also add Tom that's one advantage of 145 00:07:07.300 --> 00:07:10.600  the Symmetry platform versus maybe other tax loss 146 00:07:10.600 --> 00:07:13.700  harvesting options is that you know with with quantino 147 00:07:13.700 --> 00:07:16.600  involved we can add a modest long short extension 148 00:07:16.600 --> 00:07:19.300  to a strategy which gives it some 149 00:07:19.300 --> 00:07:22.400  unique advantages versus long only text less harvesting so 150 00:07:23.200 --> 00:07:26.800 And long only tax loss harvesting. You'll typically have a risk budget. 151 00:07:26.800 --> 00:07:29.500  So to speak, you know, there's only so much 152 00:07:29.500 --> 00:07:32.600  deviation versus The Benchmark the clients willing 153 00:07:32.600 --> 00:07:32.700  to take 154 00:07:33.600 --> 00:07:35.200 but with that risk budget 155 00:07:35.800 --> 00:07:38.300 If you do tilt toward maybe you're 156 00:07:38.300 --> 00:07:41.500  evidence-based beliefs would maybe value momentum 157 00:07:41.500 --> 00:07:44.900  you're taking up a little bit of that rich risk budget. So 158 00:07:44.900 --> 00:07:48.000  by taking up that risk budget, you're reducing the 159 00:07:47.800 --> 00:07:50.300  expected tax benefit because you're a 160 00:07:50.300 --> 00:07:52.400  little bit more constrained and tax less harvesting. 161 00:07:53.400 --> 00:07:56.200 So one disadvantage of perhaps long only text less 162 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:59.800  harvesting with the long short extension that long 163 00:07:59.800 --> 00:08:02.500  short extension itself is the engine for tax benefit 164 00:08:02.500 --> 00:08:03.100  generation. 165 00:08:03.800 --> 00:08:06.300 So you can do a lot of created them things in 166 00:08:06.300 --> 00:08:09.100  the portfolio. You could tilt toward your your factors and 167 00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:12.900  your in your beliefs, but you're not giving up any expected 168 00:08:12.900 --> 00:08:13.600  tax benefit. 169 00:08:14.600 --> 00:08:17.400 If you're if you're employing that long short extension. 170 00:08:18.300 --> 00:08:22.300 Yeah, I kind of want to hang on that point Glen because we say 171 00:08:21.300 --> 00:08:25.100  and Phil I think would agree with with you 172 00:08:24.100 --> 00:08:27.000  that you know, there's no such thing as 173 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:29.200  a perfect portfolio, right? Every portfolio is 174 00:08:30.200 --> 00:08:33.500 As it's trade-offs or is 175 00:08:33.500 --> 00:08:37.500  a compromise if you will and if you want tax efficiency 176 00:08:36.500 --> 00:08:40.400  as a main goal Factor investing 177 00:08:40.400 --> 00:08:43.200  might not be the best way to do it. It's a 178 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:47.000  better way of doing it versus just a beta portfolio. But 179 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:49.500  what I'm hearing you say Glens you get kind of The Best of Both Worlds 180 00:08:49.500 --> 00:08:52.500  by utilizing things like margin and 181 00:08:52.500 --> 00:08:55.400  short positions. Is that correct? I would 182 00:08:55.400 --> 00:08:58.900  I would agree that I would think the long short extension 183 00:08:58.900 --> 00:09:02.100  itself introduces more creativity in 184 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:06.000  the portfolio because that 185 00:09:04.500 --> 00:09:07.800  engine of tax benefit generation 186 00:09:07.800 --> 00:09:10.900  is there it doesn't depend on the underlying portfolio 187 00:09:10.900 --> 00:09:13.500  for those strong and consistent text benefits. So, 188 00:09:14.400 --> 00:09:17.400 You have a lot more flexibility to implement the core part 189 00:09:17.400 --> 00:09:20.200  of that portfolio as you see fit. Sure. No, I think that makes 190 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:24.000  a lot of sense. There's a lot of strategies that we're deploying now the 13030 191 00:09:23.300 --> 00:09:27.200  which you're alluding to Glenn I think is very interesting but filament 192 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:29.400  in our experience, we've seen our new 193 00:09:29.400 --> 00:09:33.100  favorite word ossification, right which essentially means 194 00:09:32.100 --> 00:09:35.400  that when you own a a basket of 195 00:09:35.400 --> 00:09:39.300  security is whether it's ETS mutual funds are stocks at some 196 00:09:38.300 --> 00:09:42.000  point you get to an area 197 00:09:41.200 --> 00:09:44.300  over time where you can't do anything 198 00:09:44.300 --> 00:09:48.000  with that portfolio because of embedded gains, right 199 00:09:47.300 --> 00:09:51.100  and we've seen that over the years with our portfolios. 200 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:53.700  Can you comment a little bit on that? Yeah, absolutely and 201 00:09:54.900 --> 00:09:57.200 The the irony in that 202 00:09:57.200 --> 00:10:00.300  situation is you should want to get there right because 203 00:10:00.300 --> 00:10:03.200  you want your portfolio to increase in value. So 204 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:06.600  the way you you get to the point of having 205 00:10:06.600 --> 00:10:09.500  no unrealized losses in your portfolio to 206 00:10:09.500 --> 00:10:13.100  clip and realize for for tax efficient 207 00:10:12.100 --> 00:10:15.100  repositioning is your portfolio goes up 208 00:10:15.100 --> 00:10:19.200  over time and there's some interesting research on this. I think there's broad 209 00:10:18.200 --> 00:10:21.500  agreement that even in a 210 00:10:21.500 --> 00:10:24.300  diversified long only portfolio. You probably 211 00:10:24.300 --> 00:10:27.200  only have a single digit number of years, you know, some of 212 00:10:27.200 --> 00:10:30.200  it's going to depend on your assumptions and where the market goes and and how 213 00:10:30.200 --> 00:10:33.200  you've invested and how your tax Lots look but, you know, 214 00:10:33.200 --> 00:10:36.600  three four five years. Maybe might be the limit 215 00:10:36.600 --> 00:10:38.400  you have to do. 216 00:10:39.100 --> 00:10:42.900 Efficient tax less harvesting and that type of portfolio before you 217 00:10:42.900 --> 00:10:45.300  have to start to really give on the 218 00:10:45.300 --> 00:10:48.200  risk budget and and we refer to this idea 219 00:10:48.200 --> 00:10:51.700  of tracking error, which is you know, how different returns essentially 220 00:10:51.700 --> 00:10:54.100  will look relative to a benchmark and you start 221 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:57.600  to to need to accept a lot of a lot of tracking error. If 222 00:10:57.600 --> 00:11:00.700  you're not willing to accept some realization of gains in 223 00:11:00.700 --> 00:11:03.500  in managing that portfolio. So all of a sudden, you know 224 00:11:03.500 --> 00:11:06.400  portfolio you you might be paying somebody to manage and 225 00:11:06.400 --> 00:11:09.700  do tax laws harvesting on becomes something 226 00:11:09.700 --> 00:11:12.400  that might look a little bit more like an expensive 227 00:11:12.400 --> 00:11:15.100  and noisy index. You don't have the ability to 228 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:18.500  do many transactions in that so, you know, the 1330 that 229 00:11:18.500 --> 00:11:21.100  you and Glenn have started to talk about really frees up 230 00:11:21.100 --> 00:11:24.800  the opportunity to do something with that portfolio sure 231 00:11:24.800 --> 00:11:27.600  and you know, we talked a lot about direct indexing you 232 00:11:27.600 --> 00:11:30.400  and I did a podcast of a few episodes ago 233 00:11:30.400 --> 00:11:31.900  about direct indexing. 234 00:11:32.400 --> 00:11:35.700 And the more names the more tickers the 235 00:11:35.700 --> 00:11:38.200  more opportunity you have to harvest losses, but even 236 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:41.100  with direct indexing when you hold maybe a hundred or so 237 00:11:41.100 --> 00:11:44.200  underlying stocks you do get it 238 00:11:44.200 --> 00:11:48.300  to a period where you you're eventually going to hold a basket 239 00:11:47.300 --> 00:11:50.600  of very low cost basis with 240 00:11:50.600 --> 00:11:52.900  high embedded gains securities. 241 00:11:53.500 --> 00:11:56.100 And so and the irony is that's the goal. 242 00:11:56.100 --> 00:11:59.100  You had alluded to like we want to see games in our 243 00:11:59.100 --> 00:12:02.100  portfolio. However, you know, we want our investors to be 244 00:12:02.100 --> 00:12:06.500  able to keep more in their pockets through through tax efficiency. So clunky. 245 00:12:05.500 --> 00:12:08.000  We started going down the path of the 246 00:12:08.900 --> 00:12:11.800  1330 strategy, right and in direct indexing 247 00:12:11.800 --> 00:12:14.600  certainly is a step up from a tax efficiency standpoint. 248 00:12:14.600 --> 00:12:17.300  It certainly helps describe for us a little bit about 249 00:12:17.300 --> 00:12:20.500  how that 130 30 works and multiple Market 250 00:12:20.500 --> 00:12:23.400  environments if you will sure that you 251 00:12:23.400 --> 00:12:26.600  Tom so, you know at the end of the day if you 252 00:12:26.600 --> 00:12:29.900  have a hundred dollars of a direct indexing portfolio 253 00:12:31.900 --> 00:12:34.400 maybe assume that direct indexing portfolio maybe 254 00:12:34.400 --> 00:12:37.900  has a 50% cost basis or a 60% cost basis 255 00:12:37.900 --> 00:12:40.200  that tends to be roughly the cost basis where 256 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:44.700 You're kind of handcuffed from a tax benefit generation perspective. 257 00:12:44.700 --> 00:12:47.600  You know what quantina would do would be take 258 00:12:47.600 --> 00:12:50.800  that $100 portfolio use the the margin inherent 259 00:12:50.800 --> 00:12:52.800  in that account just like clients who 260 00:12:53.500 --> 00:12:56.200 You know borrow us modest amount from their Equity port for 261 00:12:56.200 --> 00:12:59.600  those from time to time use that same margin capability and then 262 00:12:59.600 --> 00:13:03.000  we're going to go long thirty dollars in short 263 00:13:02.400 --> 00:13:05.600  thirty dollars. So we're building a 130/30 strategy 264 00:13:05.600 --> 00:13:09.200  using the margin borrowing of 265 00:13:09.200 --> 00:13:12.700  that account. No other cash is required. That's an important part and 266 00:13:12.700 --> 00:13:15.000  then if you think about that $30 long $30 267 00:13:15.600 --> 00:13:18.400  short, that's gonna be Diversified across hundreds of stocks. 268 00:13:18.400 --> 00:13:21.600  Every tax loss harvesting strategy needs breath. You 269 00:13:21.600 --> 00:13:24.400  need just a lot of stocks to be invested in because you're gonna have winners 270 00:13:24.400 --> 00:13:27.900  and losers and then you think about that portfolios the 271 00:13:27.900 --> 00:13:30.500  market goes up as the market goes down. You have 272 00:13:30.500 --> 00:13:33.400  a little bit of a structural Advantage versus long only long only 273 00:13:33.400 --> 00:13:36.400  will tend to generate great tax benefits When the market dips 274 00:13:37.300 --> 00:13:40.600 But it struggles to generate tax benefits When the market Rises and 275 00:13:40.600 --> 00:13:43.100  you know clients invest in equities because they believe 276 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:46.400  the Market's going to rise over time. So that short side of that portfolio is 277 00:13:46.400 --> 00:13:49.900  really important in the consistency of 278 00:13:49.900 --> 00:13:52.300  tax benefits over time. So if you have a 279 00:13:52.300 --> 00:13:55.300  long short portfolio on top of 280 00:13:55.300 --> 00:13:58.800  your direct indexing account, you're able to recharge 281 00:13:58.800 --> 00:14:01.300  tax benefits, you know almost immediately after 282 00:14:01.300 --> 00:14:04.400  you apply that long short extension. We can also use 283 00:14:04.400 --> 00:14:07.300  that to clean up the portfolios as 284 00:14:07.300 --> 00:14:10.700  Phil mentioned over time. You're tracking air may rise, you're making 285 00:14:10.700 --> 00:14:13.700  some deviations versus The Benchmark. So the 286 00:14:13.700 --> 00:14:15.500  risk in that portfolio is also Rising. 287 00:14:16.200 --> 00:14:20.300 So if you have an overexposure to say Information Technology, 288 00:14:19.300 --> 00:14:22.100  those names have done really well over the past 289 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:26.200  five to 10 years. We can use the short book the short 290 00:14:25.800 --> 00:14:28.900  $30 of that portfolio to reduce 291 00:14:28.900 --> 00:14:31.900  some of that overweight which will help clients reduce 292 00:14:31.900 --> 00:14:34.500  risk in those accounts as well.

Carrie Richardson is a successful entrepreneur, having scaled three service-based businesses from zero to seven figures in the last ten years. But she got her start in an unexpected place: In a fitness center, cleaning weights at four in the morning.  This is the compelling story of how Carrie earned her sobriety, built multiple award-winning companies, met her husband and started a thriving consulting company. It serves as a great reminder that no matter what rung of the ladder you're on, you can climb all the way to the top.  Carrie Richardson founded Managed Sales Pros in Winnipeg, MB, Canada in 2013, and Everywhere Managed LLC in Las Vegas, NV in 2016 until its sale in 2020.  Carrie began her business as a solopreneur making phone calls by herself - and the demand for outbound cold calling quickly surpassed her ability to fulfill on her own. Carrie bootstrapped a home-based business into two award-winning niche-focused call centers. Carrie graduated from the Eureka Project Technology Incubator in 2016, the same year Managed Sales Pros was named the 25th fastest-growing company in Canada by Profit Magazine. Everywhere Managed was founded in 2016 to support US-based technology manufacturers that required US-based outbound sales development teams. Everywhere Managed hired almost exclusively out of workforce reentry programs in Nevada. Carrie and her team developed a one-of-a-kind on-the-job training program for technology sales. The Everywhere Managed unique approach to employee development earned Carrie an Athena Leadership nomination for advancing women in the workforce. Everywhere Managed was 100% female owned and managed, and all executive team members were promoted from within after being outbound agents. Carrie was inducted into the Las Vegas Women's Hall of Fame for the achievement, and to date has been the launch pad for two successful entrepreneurs, four sales development leaders (six figure earners with stock in fast-growing tech firms) and has helped over 50 employees move from social assistance to self-sufficiency. In October 2020, the omnichannel marketing agency EBQuickstart acquired Everywhere Managed. In 2021, Carrie co-founded Richardson & Richardson with her husband Ian to help small business owners create and execute process-driven, repeatable sales and marketing programs after they have solved for all systemic challenges in their business. Carrie has found that most companies start out believing they have a sales or marketing problem, when in reality they are also experiencing financial, service delivery, staffing, and communication challenges that are impacting their ability to win and retain clients. Richardson & Richardson Consulting helps to identify areas for improvement in those areas and beyond. Carrie's journey began with a powerful origin story Carrie always loved selling. She was self-taught, a natural born salesperson. But when she decided to get sober, she faced unexpected obstacles: Sales jobs usually came with boozy lunches that made it easy to fall off the wagon.  Being a determined and process-minded person, Carrie saw that her course had to change. She quit sales and landed a job at a gym with a four a.m. shift.  Carrie had to clean the gym, answer the phones, and stand at the front desk while she worked to become a certified personal trainer. It was hard, humbling work. Setting her ego aside, Carrie meticulously scrubbed the weights clean every morning - and was spotted by the manager.  Soon after, she was called into the office. Thinking she was going to get fired, she was surprised when her manager told her that she deserved a big promotion - with a massive pay raise. Carrie never forgot that moment. Someone gave her a chance and believed in her. Her work was recognized. It inspired her to build companies that truly support people - no matter what they're going through.  When Carrie left her job at the gym, she decided to return to sales. It wasn't long before she started her own company staffed with telemarketers niched into the world of IT.  A lesson in giving people a chance When she started her own call centers, Carrie encountered major staffing challenges. As she jokes herself, nobody grows up wanting to become a telemarketer - and HR was wasting time chasing candidates who did not want the job.  This challenge led Carrie to think creatively. She decided to begin hiring candidates from economic development agencies. Many were coming to work from jail or rehab, and many were experiencing food and housing insecurity. Carrie saw an opportunity to help them succeed.  The call centers hired people who needed positive work experience and even provided food and housing support. Carrie got to watch them build better lives - buying their first cars, getting married, having children and even starting their own businesses. Some of her former employees have launched their very own call centers, using systems they learned working at Everything Managed. After being given a chance herself, Carrie handed out second chances to hundreds of individuals, effectively changing the lives of them and their families. Carrie's advice to entrepreneurs: Build it better Carrie Richardson loves numbers, and she hates wasted time. When asked about her greatest advice for beginning entrepreneurs, she recommends that we focus our marketing efforts on things that produce real, tangible results.  Rather than just shooting out messages on LinkedIn and hoping for a response, Carrie suggests that you take stock of what works for you, and what doesn't. Is your website working for you? Are your cold calls being answered? Are you getting the results you want? If not, it might be time to refocus your energy - or hire Richardson & Richardson Consulting for professional guidance. Quotes “Most IT companies - like most other companies - start their business and grab a couple clients that are low-hanging fruit. They might take a couple from the previous company they worked for, or they build their business initially by supporting their parents' friends. But they're only used to closing referral-based sales appointments. They build up their company entirely from word of mouth and referrals. When these leads stop coming in, they don't know what to do. By the time they call a company like mine, they should have called a year before!” “I don't think you should ignore any opportunity to prospect. Try all of it. Measure it and see if you can improve on it! If you see that sending twenty LinkedIn messages means that two will respond, awesome. How do you get three people to respond? But don't just send out messages all day, willy-nilly. To me, that's not sales or marketing because it can't be measured.” “Your website should translate to dollars out the bottom of your funnel. But most people aren't measuring it.” “Work with professionals up front. Make major investments in viability before you start investing in head count.” “What are you measuring? What KPI's are you reporting on? What are your accountability checkpoints?” “We hired people right out of jail, and right out of rehab. They might not have made it past screening for other jobs. Some were experiencing food insecurity or homelessness. We had a food bank in our office. If you were struggling between paychecks, we had resources. We provided breakfast and lunch for everyone. We helped people pay for apartments.” “We started watching peoples' lives change. They would come in to work after getting their hair done, for the first time since starting work for us. They would buy their first car, get married, or have a baby. Watching peoples' lives change was incredible.” “We worked with economic development agencies. They had people who were like, ‘Help me find a job! I need to work.'” “Yeah, this is your job today - but let me tell you about my life. Let me tell you where all of this took me! Cleaning the handles of some weights took me to a job that allowed me to save enough money to train with UFC kickboxers in Thailand. I did so many amazing things. And all of them came from being humble enough to take a job that I thought was a little bit beneath me.” Links mentioned in this episode: Visit the website for Richardson & Richardson Consulting at https://randr.consulting/  Watch on Youtube: “Make Smart Business Decisions with Carrie Richardson”, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CICPia7wA4  Listen to Carrie and Ian Richardson's podcast, “What's Important Now,” on Buzzsprout: https://win.buzzsprout.com/  Connect with Carrie Richardson on LinkedIn at http://LinkedIn.com/in/tinfoilhat2

Eddy Dacius host the Divine Purpose Podcast. DPPodcast is a platform for healthy conversations, interviews, and interactions with callers. We all have different opinions; however, the truth is the ultimate mediator. SPECIAL GUEST Inspired by the desire to change people's lives, Carlos left an established career in Information Technology to pursue his ever-growing love for fitness, health, and wellness. Carlos, an avid fitness enthusiast, has participated in many fitness competitions, including road races, triathlons, local CrossFit® competitions, and long-distance biking events. Carlos found his passion in high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and core strength training while managing gyms, training, and coaching others. Through his experience and studies, Carlos believed in creating a system that focused on HIIT and involved stabilizing and strengthening the core without spending multiple hours in the gym. The results of HIIT have been wildly researched and found to be the ultimate best way to burn fat and continue burning after your workout is done. For modern-day living, this type of workout is perfect. Founded in May of 2017, Carlos created HIITCore Fitness to bring functional fitness to everyone; novices and athletes benefit from training at HIITCore. “Your body thrives on functional high-intensity and core strength conditioning. These two components mixed, varied at different timed domains and intensities, is what HIITCore is all about. There's no other way of getting fit, in my opinion.” says Carlos. Carlos teamed up with his wife, Ellen, and created a thriving business with a promising future together.   Facebook, Instagram & Twitter: @dppodcastlive Main Site: https://dppodcast.com My Podcasts Audio: https://edacius.podbean.com My Podcasts Video: https://www.dppodcast.com/dppodcast/e...
