On today's podcast I had AJ Osborne on! AJ owns over 2 million square feet of self storage, that's about 10,000 doors! The crazy part is that him and I are partnering on buying a bankrupt Kmart and converting that into self storage. We talked about that deal and how exactly we're going to do that. All the things that go into rezoning a property and building all of these storage units is pretty crazy! On top of that, there is land around it that makes it a really interesting deal. We also talked about his experience in the self storage game, and why there is so much demand for it compared to years past. I couldn't understand how these were being built everywhere. His explanation makes complete sense on why demand is growing and how Amazon and similar companies are going to affect the demand of self storage. So, if you have ever been interested in self storage, this is a great episode to watch. And if you want to invest in this deal, you definitely want to watch this episode!

It's because real estate prices have skyrocketed, houses are becoming smaller, and more people are renting. Self storage allows individuals to store the same amount of stuff that they just don't have room at home for. Many people are also creating business that they can run out of storage units!AJ Osborne and I also discuss all the details of the deal and how you can invest with us! Self storage, self storage investing, how to invest in real estate, how to invest in self storage, real estate investing, real estate investing 2022, real estate investing during a recession, accredited investor opportunities, how to manage self storage

So sign up on this link and we have one over in the chat, which by the way, we have a chat, it's either gonna be on the right side of your screen or underneath, depending on the platform that you're viewing us from. So if you wanna leave any comments, nasty or not can put 'em there,   Jonathan Davis 00:02:02 You know, bill, this is the most excited I've seen you in a lot. Yeah.   Bill Fairman 00:02:05 I'm getting ready to leave.   Wendy Sweet 00:02:06 Or I thought maybe it was cuz I was back. Yeah,   Bill Fairman 00:02:08 That   Wendy Sweet 00:02:08 Too. We had some great calls on Wednesday yesterday too. Wow. Five excellent, excellent calls. I just, I'm always amazed at the different topics and just really, really good stuff. Really good   Bill Fairman 00:02:23 Stuff. That would be a good way to take a couple of questions and then we can yeah. Do 'em here on the show and answer them. You don't have to say who asked them, but yeah, it might be good topics for,   Wendy Sweet 00:02:35 Well, I'm actually putting together a book from them that we'll talk about just all the different topics, cuz it's just so vast. It's, it's amazing all the, all the options in real estate. In fact, we talked about that yesterday. I, I don't remember which one I was talking to, but that, you know, you get into real estate and you think that it's, you know, fix and flip, right. You know, that's what you think it is. But my goodness, everything gets really broken down into a multitude of different options. And then when you choose that option, there's a multitude of different options for that. Right. You know, the layers are, are definitely, it just goes on and on doesn't it it's depending   Bill Fairman 00:03:14 On market timing, there's all kind of different ways to,   Wendy Sweet 00:03:18 And that's the key. My bro is figuring out what's going on. My green bro. That's and he is green today, but it's, it's, that's the key is really figuring out what's going on around you. And what can you do to go into that toolbox and use? What's gonna work for what's happening in that market.   Bill Fairman 00:03:41 Neat keeps real estate so interesting is exciting, constantly changing and evolving, but you know what? It's still the same. It's all that's right about the numbers. It's just different ways of tackling it based on different right   Wendy Sweet 00:03:54 Markets, basically the same, that's the   Jonathan Davis 00:03:56 Similar conversation that we, we had, I think at the last employee luncheon learn or whatever that we had talking about, you were saying the market is cyclical and you know, it's just all these things. And while that's true, the things that throw it, the occurrences that throw it back into that cyclical motion are never the same,   Wendy Sweet 00:04:18 Right? Like   Jonathan Davis 00:04:19 So good point. It, it keeps happening, but it's never the same thing that, that   Wendy Sweet 00:04:23 Pushes it over there. Trigger pushes   Jonathan Davis 00:04:24 It back. So that's the exciting part is we know it's cyclical, but we never know what will cause that cyclical motion.   Wendy Sweet 00:04:30 Yeah. Yeah. Great point.   Bill Fairman 00:04:32 That is true. But the, the majority of the time it's rate related,   Jonathan Davis 00:04:40 But what causes the, we had the same, but what causes the rate? It's never the same thing.   Bill Fairman 00:04:45 That's   Wendy Sweet 00:04:46 Right.   Jonathan Davis 00:04:46 We don't say the fed or the fed responding.   Bill Fairman 00:04:49 We, we know that the fed doesn't cons doesn't control   Wendy Sweet 00:04:52 Mortgage rates.   Bill Fairman 00:04:52 Yeah. The fed is always behind it's the market that controls rates.   Wendy Sweet 00:04:56 Yeah.   Bill Fairman 00:04:57 So   Wendy Sweet 00:04:58 Really good stuff. We do   Bill Fairman 00:04:59 Have a little bit of breaking news. Speaking of rates, breaking news, the average 30 year fixed rate mortgage dropped to 4.9, 9% for the week.   Wendy Sweet 00:05:21 Really? I don't know   Bill Fairman 00:05:22 That. Not from 5.3. Oh all the way down to 4 9, 9. Wow.   Jonathan Davis 00:05:27 And it was at five, five. What didn't they? Yeah.   Wendy Sweet 00:05:30 Brian Maddox said that would happen,   Bill Fairman 00:05:32 You know, excuse me. Keep in mind. It's still gonna fluctuate for a while, depending on slow downs and that type of thing. But a lot of people were pulling money back over in stocks and it worked out well. Yeah.   Wendy Sweet 00:05:46 Yeah. That's, that's   Bill Fairman 00:05:47 Good. At least for some of those folks that have been kind of sitting on the fence and hoping that they wouldn't spend half their life paying their mortgage off. All right. So let's, let's get this show on the road. Yeah. So a while back we were fortunate enough to purchase some self storage. She hasn't told the story. So because it could be fortunate or unfortunate. I'm not sure yet because we, you know, we land in that space and we love the space, you know, why don't we own any yeah. You   Wendy Sweet 00:06:23 Know what I mean? Why don't we own   Bill Fairman 00:06:24 Everything? So we're, that was cause we couldn't afford it. We're we're dipping our toes always can and, and Wendy is taking the lead on   Wendy Sweet 00:06:31 This. Yeah. Taking the lead and the middle and the behind on it. But you know, that's what I said I would do. And that's what I'm doing because the team here is so awesome that I don't even really have to do anything in the loan on the loan side of life anymore, which is sad, but also very exciting. But it opened me up to be able to do this. And you know, our mom, she might not be online now, but she will watch this. And she has seen me all my life. I don't just bite things off to chew. I bite them off bigger than they really need. It's an elephant at every opportunity for me. And,   Bill Fairman 00:07:10 And we, we call that jumping in with both   Wendy Sweet 00:07:12 Feet. Yeah. Yeah. And, and I always ask myself, why in the world are you doing this? And, but I always land on my feet, thanks to God. And you know, the same thing has happened here. We didn't just buy one storage facility. We had to buy two. And, and I'm so glad that we did though, because they've really been very different in the approach. The reason why we bought them were for really two different things. You know, one, one was a little bit bigger. One was, you know, that one's located closer to us. One's located farther away. It just, it's amazing how the two have reacted differently to what we're doing. And I'm kind of doing the same due diligence for both. But one came out to be a whole lot easier to work with, which is the one we didn't think would be than the one that we thought would be the breeze has turned out to be extremely challenging. Let's   Bill Fairman 00:08:17 Let's, let's talk about two. One is more of a conventional way of looking at cell storage all in one   Wendy Sweet 00:08:24 Land. Yeah. That's the one in Crossville, Tennessee.   Bill Fairman 00:08:27 And then the other one in Mexico, Missouri.   Wendy Sweet 00:08:29 Yes. Always wanted to go to Mexico, but not in Missouri, but is,   Bill Fairman 00:08:33 Is several parcels,   Wendy Sweet 00:08:35 Several parcels. And it's in a downtown neighborhood like it's downtown, but it's split up into four different parcels that are all within a block or two of each other. It didn't have a fence around it. They were painted brown and we'd gone in and were camouflaging them. They were camouflaging 'em they're, you know, not, no good lighting the weeds growing up everywhere. And, and so we we've done the rehab side of that almost complete for, for the most part, you know, with the new gravel and drainage and gutters and painting it. And it, it looks like a completely different place and it's now a hundred percent full. So now we're getting in starting to raise the rates and cuz you don't really wanna be a hundred percent full. You wanna be in the mid nineties   Bill Fairman 00:09:33 When this is recorded, we'll leave a link through some before and after   Wendy Sweet 00:09:37 Photo shots. Yeah. I forgot to send Scott some pictures of that and   Jonathan Davis 00:09:41 You don't wanna be a hundred percent full because if you are, you're   Wendy Sweet 00:09:43 Not charging enough. That's exactly right. I'm competitive in the market. Yeah, that's exactly right. It's, I'm glad that I have my hospitality background being in the hotel business and of course have a short term rentals as well because there's things about self storage that are really similar to the hospitality industry. D a little different than your regular long term rental, but very much like your short term, you care about occupancy, you know, driving up the rates on a daily, weekly or monthly basis based on what your occupancy is and what your competitors are doing. When I was in the hotel business, we had one particular hotel in Montgomery, Alabama and comfort in quality in there was a Marriott courtyard and a, a Fairfield all on different corners. And each, each, you know, we were the first ones comfort on that corner. And as everybody built a new hotel, you know, our occupancy was going down.   Wendy Sweet 01:10:42 So we would send the other, we knew nights that that other people were gonna fill up first. So we started sending their front desk people pizzas and say, Hey, we have rooms. So I say that because it's important to understand your competition. Yeah. And what they're doing and be on a friendly basis with them because there are plenty of the newer self storage facilities out there that are full. They, or they don't have the sizes that people need and you want them to recommend, you know, us. Yep. You know, cuz I don't mind being number two. It's okay. You know, we can still number two yeah. Or walling in it. So, so that's been, it's been really unique to me in that it's so much like the hotel business and, and the automation from it is really exciting too, because self storage is exploding. So, so all of the vendors that have to do with self storage, you know, they too are exploding and growing and what they're doing, where, you know, you, you can book a unit on your phone and you're key to get in is on your phone. You tell   Jonathan Davis 01:11:52 Like you can buy, buy like automated drones that when someone like security drones, when someone's on the property, they will circle and go to that's. Right. Like it, it gets   Wendy Sweet 01:12:01 Pretty high tech that's right. It does. Now they're running about $32,000 a pop. So we probably won't be getting any of those anytime soon. Well, but some of the bigger storage, but if you're   Bill Fairman 01:12:10 Hanging out around our facility for no reason, you never know, we may have   Wendy Sweet 01:12:14 One, you hear that buzz above you. Yeah. That's what we're looking for. But it's, it's, it's just amazing how automated it is. And you know, and another thing too, in self storage, you definitely wanna do that. Cost segregation study and take advantage of the, the, you know, tax opportunities that you're gonna have to be able to do that. So, so it has, you know, sell storage has so many different real estate types that are related to other segments of real estate that you're in. And they kind of all come into this one spot, which is really, to me, it's really exciting. I think   Bill Fairman 01:12:53 It's neat. So if you're doing fix and flip and other things and you're having trouble finding contractors and supplies, is it the same for self storage?   Wendy Sweet 01:13:03 It's similar, but not as bad, you know, I'm looking for people who can install fences, I'm looking for a painter, I'm looking for masonry guy that can repair that roofers.   Jonathan Davis 01:13:16 The things that are really like backed up are windows lumber,   Wendy Sweet 01:13:20 Trusses appliance   Jonathan Davis 01:13:22 Appliances. Right.   Wendy Sweet 01:13:23 So I'm not feeling all that you   Jonathan Davis 01:13:26 Concrete slab block and metal   Wendy Sweet 01:13:27 That's right. That's exactly right. And even like, you know, our Crossville Tennessee property had T one 11 siding. I had   Bill Fairman 01:13:37 No   Wendy Sweet 01:13:37 Idea what that is. Well, it's like fake panel. It's like the paneling from the seventies, but it's for the outside of a building. So it's, it's on the, the, you know, where the Eves come to the end. So it's really just on the ends of the building and it's all rotten. It needs to be replaced. And my goal or thought pattern was just to replace it with the same thing. But you know, my roofer comes in and goes, you know, we can replace that siding with metal rather than T one 11. Well, heck yeah. I'd love to have it replaced in metal. It's custom cut. And it's actually a little bit cheaper for us to do it that way and it'll last a lot longer. So, so I'm really, really excited   Bill Fairman 01:14:17 By that. So they using the same materials they would use for a metal roof.   Wendy Sweet 01:14:19 That's exactly right. And we're getting roofs put on, on some of the   Bill Fairman 01:14:23 Building. So corrosion resistant.   Wendy Sweet 01:14:24 Exactly. Exactly. So it works. So, but you know, the first thing I did before we bought these is I immersed myself in first of all, the North Carolina self storage association, a dear friend of mine Wende long invited me to accompany him to go. And it was, you know, just one of the best things I ever did. I'm so grateful that he, he directed me to do do that. And then I went to a bigger self storage convention in Las Vegas. You know, my favorite town, everybody knows I hate Las Vegas, but it's called inside self storage. And that was, you know, really, really good with all of the, the classes, the seminars, the vendors, there were, I don't know, 3000, 4,000 people there. It was really big, but very, and it was interesting to see too, who, who, who, who the owners are, you know, who is it? 52% of the people that own self storage is mom and pop, you know, real, similar to single family, burnt out landlords, you know, and that's who you wanna buy your properties from. So   Bill Fairman 01:15:34 Smaller multifamily too.   Wendy Sweet 01:15:36 Exactly. Exactly. And then you've got, you know, a few co corporations that have, you know, hundreds of facilities and are just doing really, really well.   Bill Fairman 01:15:47 And, and a lot of those are now developing new versus trying buy old. Cause it's cheaper to develop than it's to purchase.   Wendy Sweet 01:15:54 That's exactly right. And what was, and it   Bill Fairman 01:15:57 Functions more like they want it to   Wendy Sweet 01:15:58 Function. That's right. And go ahead, Owen,   Jonathan Davis 01:16:01 To build on that, you know, looking for, you know, those old box stores where they, you know, I think when we were talking with Fernando angel Luci, you know, they to self storage exclusively, I think you said it saves almost six up to 60% of build costs. If you can just get one of those shells at a decent price and go inside there. So you've seen a lot of people do that.   Wendy Sweet 01:16:24 Well, and that's, what's another, you know, we   Bill Fairman 01:16:26 Say, so start looking for coals. Yeah.   Wendy Sweet 01:16:29 Because they're going down. I'm just kidding. No, no, we love go.   Jonathan Davis 01:16:32 But I mean, like I swear, every Kmart is every old Kmart I think is   Wendy Sweet 01:16:36 Yeah. Self support. That's so true. That's, that's very true. And the other thing that, that we talked about when we first started this conversation, excuse me, was we talked about how like, its, if you go into fix and flip now, you know, it can be, get broken down into so many different types of things that you're gonna focus on. Well, self storage is the same way you're gonna have, you know, the self storage that doesn't have the fence around it. It's located kind of in a neighborhood it's, you know, low key a C class is what I would call it. Right. Then you've got your self storage that are a little more uppity. They have the fencing and they're really nice. And that kind of thing. Then you go to your, a class, which is your, you know, five, six story, temperature control, you know,   Bill Fairman 01:17:26 There's like an office building.   Wendy Sweet 01:17:28 Yeah. Yeah. So, so there's variations of that. One of the things that we're really pushing though at this inside cell storage, they really were just starting to talk about RV and boat parking. And you know how you can, if you have solar on the top of your RV cover, you know, if you're gonna build a cover for it, you get a 30% tax abatement for that, that if you're not putting walls on that building, it's not really an improvement.   Jonathan Davis 01:17:54 So it's not tax it doesn't add value to the assessment.   Wendy Sweet 01:17:58 So you don't, don't have to pay more taxes for that. So there's all kinds of little things that you can look for there. But one of the things that I have really learned when I'm looking at new properties is to really search for properties that have land or, or space a certain amount of space. And you need to understand what you need. Like you're gonna have to have 30 feet all around that space for turnaround and back in and that kind of thing. So you wanna make sure that you have space to be able to add our van boat parking and you don't have to have a cover on it. You just, you know, show 'em where they can park and, and you have no overhead for that, but   Bill Fairman 01:18:36 Gravel. Yeah. And that's one of the benefits of not having the big bucks, right. That you're doing or the new development, because they're paying a lot more for the land and they want to utilize it with we'll call it dwellings. Right. But if you're buying a, you know, a mom and pop that's out a little bit, the land was already cheaper. Right. And if they have land there, then you can either have portable units that you can put in there or you can turn it in the boat and RV and   Wendy Sweet 01:19:03 Yeah. And the cool thing about the portable units is portables are just that they're portable. So you can put those units in places where your local zoning won't allow you to do any kind of a permanent structure. So you're allowed to add additional space by having those portable units. But really when you sit back and look at the cost of the portable unit, why not turn it into just parking   Jonathan Davis 01:19:30 Spot? Yeah. The parking spot. I mean, yeah. It'd be beneficial if you have zoning that has like, you know, you know, offsets that are, you know, extreme, like, you know, like in some places it could be like 50 foot. Yeah. It's like, well, you know, 50 feet's a lot. Well, he can get a lot of portable units and 50   Wendy Sweet 01:19:45 Feet. Yeah. So   Jonathan Davis 01:19:46 That, but you know, that, that might be an   Bill Fairman 01:19:48 Opportunity gets back to work with what you have. Yeah. Based on the market conditions. That's   Jonathan Davis 01:19:55 Exactly right. I saw where some someone said we've seen a lot of seller financing for the smaller self storage facilities on the note side. I mean, yeah. I mean, makes sense. I mean, most of those on the smaller ones are, like you said, owned by mom and pop they're already paid for, they either built to themselves are paid it off or inherited it or whatever the case may be. Right. And they're just looking   Bill Fairman 02:20:15 And they're used to the cash flow.   Jonathan Davis 02:20:16 Why not continue cash flow?   Wendy Sweet 02:20:18 Well, and they're smart enough to know that if they, if they get all that money, they're gonna have to pay uncle Sam right off the back, you know, why not taking in increments? And if, you know, push comes to shove and they're not paying me, I just take the facility back.   Bill Fairman 02:20:33 If you go in and improve it and raise the rents. Yeah. And you're not paying, they they've got a place that's worth more money.   Wendy Sweet 02:20:39 Yeah. That wouldn't be mad. So, so some of the, the piles of number twos that I stepped in was, but this one turned out to be a good one was I didn't walk the property properly before we closed do that. How do you   Jonathan Davis 02:20:57 Walk it   Wendy Sweet 02:20:57 Properly? Well, you need to go inside units when you're there. And you should have a map of the units with you when you're doing that. And look for dead space. Like our prop, the property in Mexico, Missouri had 13 more units than we thought. You know, I always love when that,   Jonathan Davis 02:21:20 That that's a good, yeah,   Wendy Sweet 02:21:21 That's a benefit. They actually didn't have doors on 'em that it was just a building that was empty and it looked like it had doors, but it didn't. So, so that's a, that, that was a plus. But the other thing that it, that it hurt by not walking that property is, you know, when you're looking at a property you're looking for damages and things that you're gonna have to do to, to replace, but by not going into the units, I wasn't able to see the terrible job they did by putting a roof and a ceiling and how some of them were leaking. And there was a lot of masonry things on just the insides of the doors that I would not have noticed. I would've noticed had I opened up those doors and, and walked in. So, so   Jonathan Davis 02:22:07 Look at every single unit,   Wendy Sweet 02:22:09 I, I would do everything possible to get, get my eyes on every one of 'em. If I could,   Bill Fairman 02:22:14 Of course, that's hard to, do you have locks from the owners on those doors? You can't get in to see   Wendy Sweet 02:22:18 All yeah, that's true. I mean, it, it takes planning ahead to be able to do that, but plan to be there two or three times to be able to, to stick your head in there. And I know   Jonathan Davis 02:22:27 That I talk with Fernando. I mean, they usually, when they go look at a facility they're, it's like a one or two full   Wendy Sweet 02:22:34 Day. Yeah. They do a good job of due diligence, Fernando and Luci, their company does a great job, job title wealth. Yeah. They do a great job of due diligence. I, I just love what they're doing. The other thing that I can tell you was a real challenge and it still is. I don't quite have my arms around. It is the property in, in Missouri had a software program in place already called web storage, which isn't one that we stayed with. But the other one Crossville, Tennessee was run by the epitome of good old boy. And they literally kept everything on a sheet of paper. Like when somebody pay, they hand write, 'em a receipt, zero, zero software whatsoever. And it has, it has taken a long time to get all of that uploaded correctly. And they weren't even taking debit cards or, or any kind of credit card. They would take cash only. And I think a lot of that had to do with that under the table thing, but we kinda got that. It's amazing track.   Bill Fairman 02:23:44 They have multiple facilities. So if they're doing   Wendy Sweet 02:23:47 Multiple, yeah, yeah. That company that we, that would be hard, keep that we purchase that from actually has four other facilities in the area. And they're all being operated the same way. It blows my mind. It's a lot of work. Well somebody's making necessarily work.   Bill Fairman 02:24:01 I don't know, know if you don't have to   Wendy Sweet 02:24:02 Pay taxes on that gas? Well, when, when we closed on that, there were three people that were five years late or longer three that were, that still had stuff in there. Now we cleaned out a total of 33 units since we've had it. And just a few months of people that were were late, but you know, five years or longer, one guy owned owed $8,000 over $8,000 and, and had never been there. What was his monthly rate? I think he was sitting at 45, 40 $5,   Bill Fairman 02:24:34 Takes a while to get to 8,000 balance of   Wendy Sweet 02:24:37 $45. And the rates had not been increased in three years. And I mean, it's, it's, it's definitely work in progress. In fact, Alex is there now cleaning out three more units today. So we're working that one. It's it's coming along. So understanding the software and the books and that kind of thing. I mean, what, what I got was printed out on a sheet of paper, but it was all faults. It was just all fault. So that, that was a kind of a, a disappointment. And then the other thing that I've run into is the local government in Tennessee has not been very easy to work with in getting our corporation set up and, you know, so we can get our banking. You know, we bought it with one of our companies that has the word trust, cuz we bought it in a trust and they don't like that word trust.   Wendy Sweet 02:25:32 So we've really been going around for almost 45 days now, tell 'em we didn't make that word. I know it's for real. So try just trying to get them to respond to that and get it so we can actually deposit the thousands of dollars in payments that we have sitting on the desk waiting to be deposited is, is kind of frustrating. So those are kind of the, the good, bad and ugly items that I've been dealing with at this point. But I'll tell you, I, you know, I'm really excited about self storage. I'm looking forward to buying two more here real shortly.   Bill Fairman 02:26:07 Wait, wait minute. Before you do that, I want to give you an opportunity. Okay. To give the last word,   Wendy Sweet 02:26:14 Oh,   Bill Fairman 02:26:19 I have to use those graphics whenever I can go ahead.   Wendy Sweet 02:26:22 Okay. It's super istic. They SPOC.   Bill Fairman 02:26:28 So if you were gonna wrap it up with your last phrase yeah. Instead of the word, what would you do?   Wendy Sweet 02:26:33Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid.    Bill Fairman 02:26:37 Says the person that jumps in with both feet. Well,   Wendy Sweet 02:26:40 And I'm still here. I'm still kicking. I've messed up more than most people have been successful, but you know what? You learn from everything that you do.   Bill Fairman 02:26:51 It's called earning why you learned. Yeah.   Wendy Sweet 02:26:54 Right? Yeah. The, the thing is, is, you know, you definitely wanna do your homework, but don't let fear stop you. It's just a few more zeros. And I know everybody goes, whoa, but it it's it's it's well worth it. It's exciting. It's doable. Anybody can do this. Yeah. Anybody can do this. You just need to do your homework and hook up with the right people.   Bill Fairman 02:27:17 And it is very recession resistant.   Wendy Sweet 02:27:19 Yes. Yes.   Bill Fairman 02:27:20 It's low maintenance costs. Once you get everything in place and you can automate a whole lot of it, right?   Wendy Sweet 02:27:28 Yeah. Oh, this is funny. So I love this question. Where are you buying last? The last two? I don't know. We're looking and that's the other thing too, is we can doesn't really matter where it is.   Bill Fairman 02:27:38 We would prefer to be in the   Wendy Sweet 02:27:40 Southeast in the Southeast, cuz that's where we are, but it doesn't really matter. But this other question from Alva.   Jonathan Davis 02:27:46 Yeah. Elder, I was looking at a mom and pop storage unit in the market is close to one of the corporate storage companies. Should I be afraid?   Wendy Sweet 02:27:52 No, no. They've already done all the homework. They've   Jonathan Davis 02:27:55 Done the homework, but, and, and again, that's the, the microcosm of what self storage is. It's not a zip code. It's not a county, it's not a city. It is literally a one to three, three mile radius.   Wendy Sweet 02:28:07 And your customer is not the same customer that the big corporate storage company has   Bill Fairman 02:28:12 Keeping in mind, same customer, the, the big companies they're raising their rates every six months. And you're gonna get people that are saying, all right, I'm done with this. I'm moving to someplace. That's gonna be a little bit cheaper. It may not be as pretty as this one, but we bought just more sense.   Jonathan Davis 02:28:30 We bought probably the ugliest storage units. You could   Wendy Sweet 02:28:32 Totally the ugliest. That's not what brown on brown, what   Jonathan Davis 02:28:36 They look like. It's what's the potential for them.   Wendy Sweet 02:28:38 That's right.   Bill Fairman 02:28:39 That's   Wendy Sweet 02:28:40 Great   Bill Fairman 02:28:41 Question. Yeah, no, that, that is, that is a great question. All right, listen, we need to wrap this thing up because we've been   Jonathan Davis 02:28:50 Great advice   Bill Fairman 02:28:53 Going on and on about this, but we have a lot more, we're gonna do some updates on this as we go forward and let you know what Wendy has stepped in. Because again, she's doing all this for us. So   Jonathan Davis 02:29:04 What's the purpose of the last word. If you have it, no matter who gets to,   Bill Fairman 02:29:11 Okay. Jonathan is now being cut off, cuz I'm going to this camera. Now   Wendy Sweet 02:29:16 Let me get out of the shot.   Bill Fairman 02:29:17 Thank you so much for joining us on the real estate investor show.

Ken is the epitome of the American Dream, however it was not always easy and success is NEVER guaranteed. We are going to talk about success, failure, and how the decision that Ken made has resulted in Phase 10 celebrating 40 YEARS in 2022! Ken's big success came in 1982 when he set out to design a new card game. Upon seeing the success of Uno, he wanted to design a card game that could achieve similar success. After just a couple of days sequestered in his apartment, he came up with the Phase 10 card game. His first customers included K-Mart and Meijer stores. In 1987 Ken licensed the manufacturing and distribution rights of Phase 10 and began receiving royalties from the worldwide sales. Phase 10 is now licensed and produced by Mattel, the largest toy company in the world, with worldwide sales of over 4 million games per year. Phase 10 is sold in over 30 countries and is the 2nd best selling card game in the world. In the summer of 2022, Ken will celebrate Phase 10's 40th Anniversary!

Indira Naidoo is one of Australia's most popular broadcasters and authors. Spending time with her for this conversation was an absolute highlight for me. During her thirty-year award-winning journalistic career, she has hosted and reported for some of the country's most distinguished news and current affair programs, including the ABC TV's Late Edition and SBS TV's World News, and she is currently the host of ABC Radio's Weekend Nightlife. A few months ago I was shopping in Kmart and saw this book on the shelves ‘The Space Between The Stars'. It's a book that Kate Ceberano calls ‘Life-changing' and David Wenham says ‘A tender, touching, and at times bloody funny meditation on life. And death. And how to live'. Indira's world was shattered a few years ago when her younger sister died suddenly. Grappling with heartbreak an unnoticed universe of infinite beauty wove through Indira's grief and lead to her exploring how nature can heal. From star-gazing to tracking ants to cloud-watching to jumping in puddles - Indira invites us in. This conversation was filled with delight as we navigate the world of heart-ache and grief. Like watching the subtle movement of the trees in the wind, and the moving of the clouds, I encourage you to sit and soak up this extraordinary conversation with Indira Naidoo.

"For Keeps spotlights interesting, unusual or unexpected collections of things and the people who keep them."This episode of MetaPod turns the spotlight around on David Peterkofsky and his podcast For Keeps, which explores the world of collecting. As you might expect, you'll discover that people collect some fairly unusual things. However, For Keeps is more than a show about stuff."Really the idea of how these people relate to the things they have collected is what drew me to the idea," he explains about the origin of the For Keeps podcast.In this conversation, David discusses the connections that collectors have with their collections. He shares what he has learned collectors have in common, irrespective of the types of things collected. You'll also hear some of the stories behind episodes of For Keeps. Wendy and David discuss how collectors view the Internet and its impact on collecting and the communities around collections. Lastly, David entertains the idea of featuring an NFT collector on the podcast.  Show notes:Archiving Prince, with Sound Engineer Susan RogersKMart In-Store Music Tapes, Saved by Mark Davis Elliott Smith's Musical Legacy, with Collector Charlie RamirezGame Show Props and History, with Bob BodenAbout David PeterkofskyDavid Peterkofsky has a background in print journalism and marketing communications, but the power of audio storytelling led him in 2017 to launch For Keeps, which spotlights interesting, unusual, or unexpected collections of items and the people who keep them.

Will David Stearns go after one of the Wal-Mart caliber, Kirkland Signature, CVS, K-Mart? Which prospects will the Brewers need to part with? Should the Brewers try to be decent for awhile, or really good for a few years? We also analyze David Stearns's wonderful analogy about apples. Lastly, the Brewers have been hit with some bad luck on their batted balls. Will we see an improvement in the offense in the second half, even with no significant changes?

Like many American cities, Denver and its adjoining suburbs have had moments defined by malls. From Cinderella City to Villa Italia, Buckingham Square to Westminster, malls have come and gone, but created indelible memories for many Denverites. These intergenerational spaces played host to first jobs, first dates, and for many teens, first parent-free experiences in the public realm. Today on the show, host Bree Davies talks with author and architecture critic Alexandra Lange about her new book, Meet Me by the Fountain: An Inside History of the Mall. Together, they trace the architectural and social history of Denver through the lens of a built environment meant for shopping — but remembered for so much more. Bree and Alexandra talked about beautiful images of dying malls — like these photos from Seph Lawless. (Pssst… today's blooper comes courtesy of these amazing in-store tapes from KMart that someone kindly posted to the Interwebz.

I'm so glad Malita introduced  Janene: the two of us. Yeah, me too. Great to  Janene: be  Sarah: here. So Janine, we're gonna be talking about pricing. It's kind of one of the, I'd say it's definitely a hard topic. You know how I have the humane marketing mandala and one of the pieces. Pricing. And so I always have in each kind of season, I [00:08:00] have one of the episodes about pricing and it's definitely one that a lot of people listen to cuz let's face it. It's not easy for us business owners. So I wanna ask you that question, why it's not easy, but maybe for before that tell us a little bit about you and how you got into pricing. They call you the pricing lady. So , so tell us how that all came about. Yeah. And yeah. Share a little bit of your  Janene: story with us. Okay. Yeah. So thank you. First of all, for having me here and welcome to all those of you who are watching and listening. I started my career. I'm a us born. I grew up in California. I started my career as a structural engineer and after a few years of practicing, I decided it wasn't what I wanted and ended up. Long story short ended up in product management. And the first thing that they handed me was a price list and it was 20 years old and without any commercial background or any real marketing knowhow, I knew [00:09:00] something was wrong with that and took it upon myself to not just redo my price list, but all the price lists and really. Gave everything a refresh. And that was really my first foray or my first experience in pricing. I can honestly say I had no real background in it. But I just knew that was wrong and that we needed to at least fix that. After it was with that company, I came to Switzerland in 2001. And when I decided to stay here, then I was hired as a global pricing manager for Siemens building technologies. And that was in 2004. And it's been all pricing all the time. Since then. So it's been nearly 20 years of just pricing. I worked in also in another industry in the agricultural industry agrichemicals and seeds industry for a while. And then in 2015 started my own business. And at the time I didn't know what to call myself. A coach, a consultant. And I, you know, I didn't really care for either of the terms. [00:10:00] And one day I was explaining to someone that when I would do projects in the corporate world, I was traveling all over the place and I'd walk into a new location with a new group of people to kick off a pricing project and, you know, walk up to them and start introducing myself. Hey, I'm Janine, I'm here for the pricing project and they go, yeah, I know you, you're the pricing lady. . And she goes, well, why didn't you call yourself that? I was like, I dunno, , let's do it. And so now I use it, I leaned into it fully and, and use it. And I, I find it very easy. It's a nice way to, first of all, introduce myself because it always puts a smile. Either people are confused at first if they're not native English speakers, they're like, what, what is that? But usually people smile. It's easy to remember. Right. And it sort of breaks the ice. So it, it, for me, it fits the bill of not saying I'm a coach or I'm a consultant. Which makes me a little bit more general, but it puts me in [00:11:00] a very different position. It's very clear what what I work with and what I do. Yeah. And it kind of has this  Sarah: familiar tone to it. It's not like, oh, I'm the pricing expert. You know, it's like, I'm the pricing lady. I, I know a thing or two  Janene: about pricing. it's approachable. That was one of the things that when I worked on my brand. I kept using the word fun. And of course the people who are with the branding experts were like, no, don't use the F word . Yeah. You know, cause a lot of people try to do that and it's very general. And I, I understood that. And then one day I realized it's it was about being approachable. Most small businesses may feel that, you know, consultants are out of reach for them. You know that it's not something that's really available to them. And I really wanted to work with small businesses and I am approachable. And you know, I work a little bit differently than you might with a typical consultant. Although I can work in that way. I, I prefer to work with people in, [00:12:00] in a more approachable way. End fun pricing can be fun. And I've actually had people tell me specifically that, you know, they really dreaded going to that workshop, that pricing workshop or course, or whatever it was, but it was actually really a lot of fun for them. And to me that was, you know, high praise .  Sarah: Yeah. Yeah, totally. It's funny because for me as well, I think about pricing and, and it's like, you know, math. And numbers and that kind of stuff comes up and, and, and that's only a very small part of it. I'm sure. But we'll dig into that a little bit today. So, so yeah. Why don't we go back to my initial question that I thought, you know, why is it so hard for us to price? As small business owners to put a price on our services, what have you found out over the last 20 years? Janene: Great question, Sarah. So in my experience, there's really two reasons. [00:13:00] One is that nobody ever taught you how Hmm. Yeah, right. It's like, you know, if nobody ever taught you how to ride a bike, you'd figure it out possibly by yourself. But you'd have quite a bit of scrapes and bruises and bumps and maybe some mild trauma depending on, on, you know, how quickly you were able to do it. And it's the same with anything else. As well as with pricing, if nobody's ever showed you, how then, why would you expect for it to be just something that you would know how to do? And it would be easy and without any struggle, it's a little bit illogical to think that it would be nobody's ever pulled us aside in school and said, okay, Sarah, 30 years from now, when you start your own business, this is how you're gonna set the price of your, your packages. Right. They don't do that. And funnily enough, most people don't realize. While they do teach about pricing in MBAs. They don't actually teach you how to go about setting your prices. [00:14:00] Mm, they talk about, well, there's, you know, penetration strategies and skimming strategies and there's price elasticity. They use all these big fancy words, but they don't actually tell you how to go about setting those prices. So yeah, most people don't know how that's the first reason. Right.  Sarah: The second reason. Can I just go in there as sure. Because also what came to mind is for the MBAs probably cause I've worked at an international management school here in Loza and they have a big MBA program. And so I think when they teach about pricing, they look at big companies. They don't necessarily look at the small business owner and the small entrepreneur as an example. Right. And that, I think also probably leads to the, I don't know what you're gonna say for the second reason, but I have a feeling it has to do more with the, the personal aspect as well.  Janene: Yes, it does. Mm-hmm it does you're right. I would say those programs are geared towards more corporates. Yeah. Uh, [00:15:00] Yet again I would say. A lot of corporates are not very good at setting and managing their prices either. Mm. Yeah. I mean, even the corporates are not good at it. How are we gonna figure it? They do. They do struggle with it. They struggle with different aspects of it. Mm-hmm but if you think about in the larger company, who's usually responsible for setting the prices. A lot of times it's the product manager, right. And the product manager's background is not a marketing one. Right. They're an engineer or they're an agronomist or they're a scientist, you know, or a chemist. Right? They have no commercial background. No. Yeah, it's true. Yeah. So it it's, it's. It's a very important aspect and a larger company. A lot of people are responsible for it. Of course, in a smaller company, you gotta wear all the hats, the finance hat and the marking hat and the sales hat, so on and so forth. And that comes to, like you said, the second aspect of it, which is very personal and it has to do with [00:16:00] your core beliefs around money, success and worthiness mm-hmm . Yeah. And that is, you know, that is really something. Comes in full force for most small business owners because it becomes it shouldn't. But for many people it feels like that price that they're setting is somehow a reflection of them personally. Right. And being able to make. You know that disconnect, you know, you're not, I, I used to have a program called speak, believe in charge your worth. And I always had a real problem with charge your worth being in that phrase. I couldn't find a better way to say it. So I stuck with it for a while, but because it's really, it's not your worth. It's the value of what your products are, services or. Bring the customer and yeah, being specific with your language in that way can be very important. Most of us have hangups with money, success, and worthiness that play a sabotage role in the [00:17:00] background of our decision. So I was just got off the call with a client who is Dutch. And I've had several clients who are Dutch and they always think that the price has to be the lowest price in the market. Mm. But that is, you know, something that comes from in large part, the Dutch culture from their families, from their upbringing that, you know, it always has to be the lowest price. Now, many of those clients are operating in Switzerland where people are. Generally willing to pay a bit more. They're not always looking for the cheapest solution and yet they're operating with this completely other mindset in a market that doesn't match that mindset. And it really makes it hard for them. To feel like they can charge more. So that's just one example. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, we  Sarah: could do an hour just on  Janene: this topic alone. Right.  Sarah: And, and, and that's yeah, you work with clients on that. It's part of my marketing, like we're human program, because it, it is like, if you don't get. [00:18:00]  Janene: Like, if you don't do the deep work right there, mm-hmm , I, I honestly  Sarah: think you can never figure out the pricing and, and, and it's so interesting. You're bringing up different cultures so that matters, but then also, you know, how you grew up and, and, and all of these. Influences that obviously by the time we are ready to launch our business while we've been influenced by all of this. So we come with this baggage that is just like, yeah. And it's, it's so different from. You know, being an employee in a corporate where it has nothing to do with you, even if you are the one setting the price, it has nothing  Janene: to do with you where here it has everything to do with you, or you think it has everything to feel it. Yeah. Yeah. It's. Even, I mean, in the corporate world. So to me, there's two sides to pricing. There's, you know, the, the more concrete side, which is the numbers and the figures, which generally are [00:19:00] feel more concrete. And then there's the psychological side. I always tell people. Somewhat jokingly, but I actually mean in all seriousness is that pricing is all about the psychology baby. And you have to wiggle your eyebrows. When you say that , I don't think I'm asking. You're not doing it very well today. I'm out of practice because whether it's a small company or a big company, the psychology. Your personal psychology, the psychology of your organization. And this I've seen in large companies, the sales team thinks that price is the most important factor. From the customer's perspective. I will tell you nine times outta 10, when we did the research, we found it was maybe in the top five, usually within the top 10 mm-hmm . But if your sales team thinks it's number one, That is going to impact how they behave when they're having sales discussions with your customers. Yeah, so it, it's not just a small business [00:20:00] thing. It, it happens in both sides. And when it comes to psychology, you have the psychology internal to your business for a small business, your psychology usually and not of your employees, but then you also have the external psychology towards the market, towards the customer. So it has many different facets to.  Sarah: Yeah, I wanna talk about, so we addressed the, you know, the internal psychology a little bit, because it has to do with, you know, who you are, what you believe, whether you believe that you are worthy net, whether you ever sell anything anymore or not. Right. You have  Janene: to really, truly believe that you're worthy without ever  Sarah: getting a client again. right. And then there's the external psychology. And, and I talk about that also in my marketing, like we're human book, that's kind of. Cheeky psychology that we're taught in, in marketing and kind of this online sales world. Mm-hmm so I'm really curious to, to hear more about that and your points of view, and what's true. [00:21:00] What's not, and mm-hmm and how to deal with it when we want to. You know, apply this humane approach to running a business with ethics and not cheat people into buying your stuff just by using some kind of psychology hack mm-hmm . So talk to us about that.  Janene: Okay. Before I get into that, let me just make one more comment. So one of the things that I've learned in having my own business is I thought this was a career development journey. Mm. When in fact it's been a perfect per a personal development journey from day minus two until the day I stop, it will continue to be a personal development journey. And that's also one of the reasons that this personal psychology. Placed it such a big role. So you're constantly being pushed outside of your comfort zone. Pricing is certainly one of those areas. The value of what you offer is certainly one of those areas and, and being able to have the [00:22:00] strength and the courage. To step outside your comfort zone to tackle these things is what's going to enable you to keep pushing forward in your business and be there to deliver the great things that you wanna deliver to your clients. I truly believe that. And I'm sure that people told me that before I started. I'm sure I did not understand it. I know, but it is 100%. My reality. Yeah, yeah, yeah,  Sarah: yeah. That's a good preface for, for what's coming up next.  Janene: okay. So now you wanted to talk about the psychology. So the external psychology, there are a lot of things. A lot of studies out there. A lot of tricks of the trade, if you will. I'm not sure I like that terminology. But when it comes to, you know, having a humane business and I, I I'm, I'm not going to say that using them is inhumane or humane. I'm not making any judgment. What I really [00:23:00] feel is that as a business owner, you should understand the psychology side of it because. Even if you're not using it actively, you wanna make sure that accidentally you're not doing things that are hurting your business. . Yeah. And, and that's very possible to do. For example, I had a client a few weeks ago, we had CR gone through and created her price list. And she was getting her website ready and she had two offers, one for a very high priced. Group high net worth individuals. And the second offer, there were two completely different offers, but one was targeted towards young adults who were just starting out in their careers. Mm-hmm . And so she had one offer on one webpage and the other offer on another, and then she had a pricing page and she had the prices for both offers side by side mm-hmm which from a psychology perspective [00:24:00] meant that all the good work we had done was actually now working against her because it felt like cuz the prices were on the same page. Like they were competing with each other mm-hmm whereas if she just removed the pricing page and put the price for the young adult offer here and the price for the high net worth individuals here, that comparison would not be made in the same way. That's what I mean by you have to understand, you know, These things are communicating so that you can make sure you're not doing things in a way that is actually hurting your business or your customer's experience. Mm. Yeah. Now one of the things you and I had spoken about was the endings of prices. Right? Right. You might have that conversation. yeah. Should it be 95 or 97 or 99 or zero? So I can't answer that question. For everybody that is going to be a very individual decision in each business. Here's what I can tell you. And then you can decide for [00:25:00] yourselves what is going to be best suited for your company prices that end in zero, tend to be associated with more luxury goods. Prices. It ends in nines and sevens and fives tend to be associated, especially when they put, you know, 95 cents. Yeah. Or 99 cents at the end, those tend to be associated with more. Companies that are playing towards the low price leader side of things. How, how do I know this? If you go into Louis Viton you will never see 1,999 and 99 cents, right? You just won't see it. No, yeah. You'll see. 2000, you'll see, 2,500, 8,000, right. It's just, and, and the prices will be tiny on a little teeny, tiny price tech. Yeah, you go to Miro or you go to Kmart or somewhere like that. They have big price tags with great big [00:26:00] prices on them. And there's 90 nines and 90 fives at the bottom. Right. So you have to, you know, what sort of, you know, how does this align with the value or with your purpose or brand? What's gonna make more sense for you. Yeah. And, and, and,  Sarah: and how is it gonna resonate with your clients? You know, who are you trying to attract? If you have a big ticket and, you know, service and you price it with the 99 cents at the end, they probably  Janene: won't like it well, it depends. And it also depends. So here's another example. If you're say you're a consultant, you're offering projects. If you offer a price of 25,000 versus 24,495, right then from the customer's perspective, 25,000 looks like a number that you kind of just pulled outta your back pocket. Whereas [00:27:00] 24,495 looks like a number that you've actually spent some time considering. does that make one better than the other? You have to be the judge about yeah. What per what you want or how you want to be perceived by your customers. What's going to make more sense right now, if you're in an, in an industry or in a part of the world where you're gonna be doing a lot of negotiation, then 25,000, maybe. Just the easiest place to start. Right. But if you're looking not to do a whole lot of negotiation, you may start with a number that's more precise because then it reflects that that number is precise. Right.  Sarah: And if you're in Morocco, because I just came back from two weeks in Morocco I learned that you, you know, negotiate the price down to 30% of. They tell you, and then you go back up. So yeah, that's something that we're completely not used to doing the whole bargaining. Right. So I don't recommend that. no, no. And  Janene: I think you are, you're [00:28:00] absolutely right. Think about who you're targeting, what they expect, what works exposed for you now, the 90 nines and the 90 sevens. You know, those work with target groups that are more price sensitive. Yeah. They do, I mean, studies have shown time and again, that 1499 people see the 14, they don't think 15. Yeah. So if they were to see 15 and 1499 next to each other, they would perceive the 1 14 99 as being 14. Now that doesn't mean you have to use that in your business. You need to do what's right for you and for your clients. So understand why those things are things, if you will and then decide, okay. What feels right for my business and for my audience and lead with that, because that's most important to me is that you believe in the number that you use. Yeah.  Sarah: I think that permission piece is so important [00:29:00] because yeah. I've had people ask me, so do I need to do the 2 97? Can I not just, you know, say 300 just because everybody else is doing it. And I'm like, no, you just like, you it's like, whatever you feel is right. And because when you priced the way you feel is right. then if you've done your, you know, intense client work and know who your client is, well, then they will also resonate with that more than the 2 97. Janene: So, and if you're really, really not sure, create two landing pages, change one to have a price of 2 97, 1 to have a price of 300 and AB test. Yeah. Yeah. See what works better. Exactly. Yeah. I mean, okay. You'll make $3 or three Franks, less on each sale for the 2 97, depending on how on your margins. That could be that could make a difference or not, hopefully not. You know, but that's test it out. Yeah. Who says you can't. No  Sarah: one, I have a [00:30:00] follow up question on the comparison because that's another example that I share in the book and we see a lot where we have one same offer mm-hmm , but we have three different prices, you know, like one is the V I P offer the other one the sec, the one in the middle, and then the, the, the, the third one. And you know, where you use that anchor system. So talk to  Janene: us about that. Yeah. So anchoring is actually really important. I always tell PE, ask people what's the best way to sell a 500 Frank product, put it next to a 1500 Frank product. Right. And it's, it's, it's actually true. Yeah, you may never sell the 1500 Frank product, but if it's there, cause what, what you're doing. So the anchoring, the concept here is that people are going to want to compare it to something, right. And if you give them something else on the page to compare it to, they don't necessarily have to go elsewhere to look for a comparison. Right. Right. So that can be [00:31:00] really helpful. Now. Also not just the price, but what's included in each package. So you said the same offer, but there should be three different offers. Sorry. Yeah. Say same sales page, but same sales page, but three different offers. Yeah. What's included in those offers can steer behavior as well as the price. So let's say that, you know, the middle offer is the one that you think is the best for most of your clients. Right? Then you can set it up to kind of steer most of them towards that. Right. Or if you don't wanna use that, you need to make sure that you're not accidentally steering them in the wrong direction. Right. So based on what's included and the price levels, you can, you can. Help them navigate through the decision  Sarah: gently influence them or, or, yeah,  Janene: well navigate. Well, let's, let's face it. I mean, if I worked with a tool called [00:32:00] apathy and it is a tool that allows you to take an Excel. Like I, my pricing tools that I have on my website, they're Excel based. Mm-hmm it take, it takes the Excel tool and makes it into a web-based tool. Okay. So just converse it mm-hmm magic. I love it. and when I wanted to use it, they had three offers. Right. And the first offer was you have access for one, one month or three months. I forget which and then the next level up, it meant that you got a WordPress integration. And it was almost double the price. And I thought, well, okay, mm-hmm but where did press integration is really helpful? It can really solve a lot of problems. So I thought, okay, fine. And then the premium one came with phone support and I thought, well, I don't know anything about web based tools. I have no idea what I'm getting into and it was only 10 bucks more. So I think it went from like 30 to 60 to 70. Dollars. Okay. And the middle one was six months [00:33:00] and the last one was a one year access. Okay. So. My logic was okay. I want the WordPress integration. So I'm willing to pay double right and have six months access. Right. And then in the next step, my logic was, I want the phone support or the, the priority support. I didn't really care about the 12 months. I just, and it's only 10 bucks more. Okay. That's interesting. So they,  Sarah: they actually wanted you to get the, the third  Janene: offer. Right? Did, but that's where they put their focus. They absolutely did. Mm-hmm they absolutely did. And you know, if you start looking at, as you're buying things online, look, look at how they structure the offers and you'll see very clearly. Usually you can tell which one are the most profitable or at least which one they're steering you towards. Yeah. Wine lists at a gross at a grocery store at a restaurant mm-hmm . The most profitable will wine for most restaurants will be the second, most expensive. On like [00:34:00] buy the glass Uhhuh glass. Why? Well, they know that most people don't know a lot about wine mm-hmm so they're trying to, you know, make a good choice, but they don't wanna buy the, they don't wanna embarrass themselves by no, they're not gonna buy the cheapest and they're not gonna buy the most expensive mm-hmm so they buy the second most expensive,  Sarah: right. yeah. Yeah. And that's kind of the traditional thing. So I was surprised that with this tool, They actually wanted you to get the, you know, the highest one, even though it wasn't that much higher, because usually you see the third offer to be some kind of V I P you know, 10 times the middle of it depends. So it was interesting to, yeah, I've never  Janene: seen it really depends. So sometimes. You're right. Sometimes they use the, the premium offer as the main anchor. Yeah. Which means they make it so high price to make everything look cheaper. Yeah. But other times it's actually the it's better for ACY. It was better to have someone in there [00:35:00] for full year mm-hmm Because they had just started and they were working out some of the kinks right. In this web-based con web-based tool converter, if you will, for lack of a better phrase. And so, and to have me on the phone with them, so actually, Benefit more to have people all the way over there. Yeah. Yeah. That feels like  Sarah: an honest offer. You know, it feels like, okay, I see what you're doing, but it's a win-win situation and, and yeah. You know, that's what we want. So I'm gonna share with you an example of one of my programs. So the, the marketing, like we're human program, I ran it in January and I had those three offers. The first one was. Online only mm-hmm I think they went for 500 bucks and then the group program 950 mm-hmm cause I run it live only twice per year  Janene: mm-hmm  Sarah: and then the V I P program for 4,800 mm-hmm where they also got coaching besides the [00:36:00] group program. And so I thought like, you know, the, the cur the common advices, just put that V I P offer on there. You might sell one, but you might not. And to my surprise, I actually sold three and only four group programs. So I was like, what's going on here? Like how, yeah. Can you share some insights of what might have been happening there? Did I not put enough value maybe or perceived value in the group offer? What do you think  Janene: was happening? Yeah, there's a lot of things that could be going on there. The price difference between 509 50 is not very big. Did you get anybody at the 500 or was it no, not for this one. Exactly. So you made, you made the barrier very low for them to go to the middle package. Okay. Yeah,  Sarah: so which I wanted, I wanted to, which was good,  Track 3: right?  Janene: Yeah. Yeah. Which is, which is good. I wanted,  Sarah: You know, [00:37:00] probably, I mean, it was great that I had the three V I P I would've wanted more for the  Janene: middle one for the middle, right? Yeah. Yeah. Hmm. I think, I think here it's, it's just a matter of people wanting that one to one support. Yeah. So the big difference between the two packages, the middle and the top was getting your one to one time. Right. Is that correct? Am I correct in that?  Sarah: Yeah. Yeah. That's the difference. Yeah. Between the two. So,  Janene: And I think for, you know, for some things, you know, I, I I've had group programs as well and I, I will continue to do but I've found most of my clients prefer to work one on one. Because , this is gonna sound funny when I say it, you know, but most people will assume that. Their pricing is special. Right. And that it has to be done in a special way. It's unique and, yeah. Right. And, and yes, every business is unique. Don't get me wrong. I use the same [00:38:00] process with everyone, but as we go through that process, different. Different businesses will require we focus on different areas with different levels of intensity. Right? Right. So it's, it's same but different. And I would guess that, you know, the, the people who went for your, your V IP package, it was really because they wanted that one to one. FaceTime with you. Yeah. And they didn't think that the group would give them what they needed.  Sarah: Yeah. It's interesting. You get so much insights from, you know, just this example and, and, and then you're like, oh, what does that mean for me? Do I want to lower the V I P do I want to increase it? Because I actually want more people in the, in the group or, yeah. How do I play with that? And it's yeah. Yeah. It's just  Janene: so, I mean, I think, I think in your case you could play. Increasing the one to one package mm-hmm , but may, maybe also bringing your, your group program over a thousand. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It'll, [00:39:00] it'll be interesting how  Sarah: it plays out for the next. Yeah. I thought I'd bring it up and, you know, because these, yeah. These examples are, are real and we're like, how do we do this? And it's basically just like, well, you, you try and, and then you figure out, okay, this work, that didn't work. How do I improve it now? Right. But obviously  Janene: it could also be that. I mean, cuz they are. They are, I would guess the same, but different , which is so, so specific Janine in that, you know, one is a group, two of them are group program, and one is individual. So having it in this tiered structure, you know, it's. If you had say a VIP option, that was part of the group, it was really a VIP experience of the group, as opposed to a straight up one to one package, then you might see different results. Right, right. Yeah.  Sarah: Yeah. Again, what, what this tells me that is that pricing.[00:40:00]  It's not just about a number that you put on the thing it's also  Janene: about your offering, right? Offering pricing,  Sarah: same, same thing. Really. It's like, well, how much value are you going to put into that price? And, and I think that's kind of what went wrong the last few years. And that's why I, I kind of attack some of these pricing strategies where they use these psychology hacks to, you know, sell a program for a hundred thousand and that, and the actual value. It's just very questionable often. And, and so that's why, what we need to understand is like, well, what is the value that people actually get out  Janene: from that offer? Right. Well, I guess, you know, if, if the business is, you know, half a million dollar business and they're looking to grow to be a million dollar business than investing a hundred thousand dollars to grow your business to a million is, is a reasonable. Investment to expect to make, right? Yeah, of course. But if you're a [00:41:00] $80,000 business and you are investing a hundred thousand to try and get to  Sarah: 200,000, then you  Janene: know, it's, you can, the pace be made probably would most people buy into it? Probably not. Right? Yeah. So it's, it's all contextual and this is why. I cannot emphasize enough when it comes to pricing. You always, always, always have to go back to who are you targeting? Mm. Yeah, because if you're targeting businesses that are $80,000 businesses looking to get to 200, then a hundred thousand dollars offer or Frank offer is probably. Suitable for that target group. Yeah. That's true. And you can really make life difficult for you if you try to create, if you create an offer and then try to force that offer on the wrong target group, right? Yeah. And let's face it. Most businesses start with, this is what I offer. Now. Let me figure out who I [00:42:00] can sell it to . Yeah. As opposed to starting with, I wanna do something for this group of people, with what I have, let me figure out how I can best serve. Sarah: So it feels like there's like two big problems. Either you price too low because you have all this baggage or you grew up in a culture where the lowest price is the best idea or you price too high to the wrong target audience. And I'm sure there's a ton, tons of other problems, but these are kind of the two that stand out from our conversation. Janene: Would you agree with that? Well, yeah. I mean, it's much, if you. Regardless of whether or not, you know what you're no, let me, let me think about how I wanna say this. So. Probability that you will over under price is relatively high. The more you understand about pricing, the more you can reduce that likelihood, right? Yeah. Of being under overpriced doesn't mean it doesn't happen, but even, even if, and here's another interesting part of the [00:43:00] psychology. So even if your price is a little bit high, Yeah. If you're really good at communicating the value, you'll sell it anyhow. Yeah. No. Now you don't want it to be icky sales, but let's say I, you always use this example. So let me just use it again. There are two lemonade stands. You're walking down the street, you run across two lemonade stands. One says lemonade, 25 cents. The other says lemonade, 50 cents. Which one do you buy? okay. In most parts of the world, you might buy one from each kid. If they're two cute little kids selling lemonade, and just give the other one, a 25 cent tip, call it a day. But what if the one that is 50 cents also says clean water included? Hmm. Yeah. And that's the marketing  Sarah: piece. ,  Janene: that's the pricing psychology piece from the communication standpoint. Yeah. That child is communicating the value of what they deliver better. Now it may be that they are brother and sister [00:44:00] and mom is in the kitchen making the lemonade, but because one of them communicated the value differently. People are more willing to pay the 50 cents. Right. And let's say you're in a country where clean water isn't assumed. Then they have an even bigger advantage. So the better that you can communicate the value of your offer. To some degree, not big, not on a big scale, but to some degree, the more wiggle room you have in terms of, you know, O overpricing let's say yeah. Over underpricing. And that's exactly  Sarah: why. And what we said at the beginning, it's not just about the, the number. In fact, the number you can change it, however you want almost with, with boundaries, but it's about communicating that value. That's absolutely so key.  Janene: And I was saying most people struggle. To really understand. I see this in my clients all the time. This is where they struggle the most. When we get to the value [00:45:00] piece, consistently, I mean, there are struggles in different areas, but there's something about that. That attaching a number. Cuz when we do the value work, we don't just talk about benefits. Benefits are not value. It's what people get from those benefits that creates value. And you need to be able to understand the benefits so that you can understand how those create value and then quantify that value mm-hmm . And when it comes to quantifying value and know, it makes people feel really uncomfortable. but it's hard because  Sarah: again, your worth, your worst kind of gets  Janene: in there. It's like, really? Yeah. And they're like, well, what if you know, what if. I can't guarantee it. I'm like, I'm not asking you to guarantee it. I'm asking you to tell a story about the value that people can get. Mm-hmm you can choose to share that with clients or not. It's up to you, but if you don't understand what it is, [00:46:00] then how can you believe in any price that you put out there? Yeah. Yeah. You can't. Mm. And if you don't this ,  Sarah: I, I look at the hour and I'm like, oh no, we have to wrap up. But I'm so glad we brought up the, the value pricing. Cause that was kind of in the questions I, I had prepared and we just kind of jumped over it. But the, yeah, this idea of pricing for value and not like your Dutch  Janene: client just for time  Sarah: exchanged or, you know, let me get the cheapest offer out there so that I get the most clients. It is so important and I think it cannot be repeated enough and, and you're right. It's, it's difficult. I mean, it's,  Janene: you have to believe in the value that you bring. Yeah. Yeah. And if you don't look at it and, and put number to it, Then you'll really struggle to believe in it. And like I said, if you don't, they won't there's always a few gem clients out there who believe in spite that you [00:47:00] don't , but those, you know, those are, are often few and far between and the best thing for you and for your clients is that you understand and believe in the value that you bring. Sarah: Ah, this has been so good. Thanks so much, Janine. This you're welcome has been really valuable. I wish we could. Maybe we will do a second round round. hard to, yeah. But do you share with our listeners where they can find out more about you and how you work with clients and, and all of that? Yeah.  Janene: I encourage people to head on over to the pricing lady.com. Very easy to remember. I have a podcast you'll find some great Information on there as well and regular guests and also solo cast episodes, which are a little bit more instructional. And of course, if you'd like to book a call, you can find that there as well.  Sarah: Wonderful. And I have one last question and that is what are you grateful for today or this  Janene: week? This one? Yep. I'm grateful for opportunities like this. I [00:48:00] really enjoy sharing this topic with people and, and helping people to think differently about it so that they can gain momentum towards having a more sustainably profitable business. So thank you very much, Sarah. Thanks for everyone for listening. Thank  Sarah: you, Janine. Take  Janene: care.[00:49:00] [00:50:00] [00:51:00] [00:52:00]

I like to say per se as well, I don't want to own an operate, but I want to maintain the tax benefits.  - Dan Kryzanowski  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Connect with Dan Kryzonowski on LinkedIn.   Connect with me:   Facebook   LinkedIn   Like, subscribe, and leave us a review on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or whatever platform you listen on.  Thank you for tuning in!   Email me → sam@brickeninvestmentgroup.com Want to read the full show notes of the episode? Check it out below:   [00:00:00] Dan Kryzonowski: My suggestion I've seen this play out time and time again, is that in your communication to your investors, to your prospects, one sentence saying, did you know, you can use your retirement dollars in my next deal? That alone from my experience sponsors tend to get about 10 to 20% of their raise.   [00:00:17] Dan Kryzonowski: Whether it's through an STI rate with the legacy custodian or solo 401k. And of course that ties to rocket dollar very powerful, especially as more folks are moving self-employed for better or worse. The solo 401k is pretty exciting   [00:00:29]   [00:00:40] Sam Wilson: Dan Kryzanowski is a capital raiser equity owner and LP investor generating double digit yields and lower taxes, but via commercial real estate, he's currently bullish on Texas commercial real estate, industrial self storage, and 10 31 and Delaware statutory trust.   [00:00:56] Sam Wilson: Dan, you're a wicked smart dude. I'm lucky to have you on the show. Thanks for coming on.   [00:01:00] Dan Kryzonowski: Sam. It's great to be here. And if the calendar's right, I think I was originally a number 44. So thank you for bringing me back. And I think today may actually be my 44th birthday. So, Hey, how about that? Hopefully there's something.   [00:01:11] Dan Kryzonowski: Well, look   [00:01:11] Sam Wilson: at that number 44 on your 44th birthday. That's right. Yeah. You came on the show January 12th, 2021. So it's been, yeah, that was 500 and something episodes ago. Tell me, what's happened here in the last, almost year now.   [00:01:27] Dan Kryzonowski: Yeah. I think high-level, and I was at a CEO conference here in Austin and one of the gentlemen on stage so that, Hey, in 2021, people were buying and in 2022 people are shopping and this extends everything from going to the supermarket cause inflation to I think our world.   [00:01:44] Dan Kryzonowski: And I think it's, in some ways it's a great thing. In some ways it's a challenge. So for fellow sponsors and hybrids on this call, realize. You're not the only game in town and somebody, if they are interested, your buddy that you worked with for 20 years at corporate, he or she is now listening to multiple podcasts, going to a few shows, talking to multiple sponsors, doing the diligence.   [00:02:03] Dan Kryzonowski: So just throwing a deal out there and thinking, ah, if you build it, they will come. Not as much. So, I always think it's what education, what can you play into, are you, have you listened to your audience? Your investors in the past, year and a half. And then what are you bringing them down to fulfill their needs?   [00:02:18] Dan Kryzonowski: So I feel this in all walks of life, but especially here in our real estate of passive investing world,   [00:02:24] Sam Wilson: man, I'd say it's absolutely true. The number. I feel like the investor conversation has changed. For me, I don't know, I probably have 15 investor calls. And it's changing, the preferences are changing.   [00:02:36] Sam Wilson: You're right. I'm hearing that more and more. It's like, oh, Hey, I've talked to X, Y, Z. You're like, they're shopping, I'll hear, eight to 10, we're talking to eight to 10 sponsors figuring out what's out there as well. They should, as limited partner, I encourage that. Go talk to a whole bunch of people.   [00:02:47] Sam Wilson: You may find you hate what I do. And I don't want you in my deals. If you hate what I do, you may find that I have bringing something unique to the table that you really find valuable. So I want you to, I want this to be a win-win, but they are shocked. And the other thing I think I've seen here recently, maybe you can attest to this is people are shying away from the appreciation play and really hunting for just cashflow go in.   [00:03:08] Sam Wilson: And I hear that across the board. Have you seen that?   [00:03:10] Dan Kryzonowski: I have, and we in that spirit at the, we recognize that, especially with inflation, creeping up, A lot of folks said, Hey boy, I'd love to get, I love to know I'm going to get a win for a year and then let's see where the world plays out.   [00:03:23] Dan Kryzonowski: So, typically a development multi-family is three to five, three to seven years through this feedback we have DV said, Hey, how about we chop it up to a stage one and stage two. And as a thank you to our current investors, we paid upwards up to 20% on money for up to a year on the stage. The, once again, listening to your investors, this is what was valued.   [00:03:43] Dan Kryzonowski: Now that said that we feel a lot of them are going to roll the principal and interest into the second stage. But I giving folks, Hey guys, you want to hop off the train or you want to wait a year and come on the train. I think investors prefer the sort of optionality. And once again, if you have the scale and you do your diligence to legal, et cetera, it's something you can provide your initial.   [00:04:01] Sam Wilson: Now stage one versus stage two, or are you talking about on a development deal where there may be no potential cashflow early?   [00:04:10] Dan Kryzonowski: Yeah. So think of generically called stage one, the land, almost a land loan per se age, two's going to be your typical development. And this can be your, development multi-family or maybe it's lots.   [00:04:21] Dan Kryzonowski: And you're say you're putting the pipes underground and the people come and purchase a lot. Both of these we've seen pretty attractive at least here in time.   [00:04:29] Sam Wilson: Right. Yeah. That's really intriguing. Yeah, you're absolutely right. I think that's something that providing that options, providing those options for your investors.   [00:04:36] Sam Wilson: And we've seen that also just in class shares. That's become a big thing is to class a class B do you want to clip the coupon? Do you want to clip the coupon with upside, but take a smaller clip? What's that look like? Tell me, what are you guys investing in right now in BV cap?   [00:04:51] Sam Wilson: And then maybe if you can give me a, some color to that as to what you guys are doing to protect against inflation, but also just protecting us market risk.   [00:04:59] Dan Kryzonowski: Yeah. So one thing, kind of in the spirit of our parents stock bond portfolio, we at BV feel. There's still a similar want and need that folks want some appreciation.   [00:05:11] Dan Kryzonowski: And that at times folks want a portion of their portfolio. That's a little more predictable. So, for example, and frankly, we haven't even market this. We have a triple net industrial portfolio that pays a monthly distribution. I like to say it's wonderfully boring. Cause guess what? You write a check.   [00:05:26] Dan Kryzonowski: And every month the check comes in the mail and it's a great way to also mutually know. Right. To the point that we have up to, close more than a half dozen investment advisors have actually trusts us with their client money. If you've ever been through that route, it's a hell of a lot of due diligence and everything else, just even have that conversation.   [00:05:43] Dan Kryzonowski: So that was a pretty good proof point. Yeah. Separately. We've had some stuff with sizzle on the multifamily side that we feel is going to be a good historically has been a 20 plus IRR, whether it's in student housing, Of course housing. And what I think is unique is I call it the mid point between doing a 10 31 and just painful taxes today.   [00:06:03] Dan Kryzonowski: There's many folks. In all stages of life, that own a few properties, whether it's inherited, they've had it forever and they want to probably get rid of some of that. Why as well, they want to cash in, or they're just like, Hey, this is a 1940s build. It's just tired of operating it. There's turnover. Or my time tenant is moving out.   [00:06:23] Dan Kryzonowski: Now's a good time to break Frank's. I don't want to pay high taxes in a place like Texas. So, one thing I think that's unique that we're looking into is. DST. So a Delaware statutory trust and lay person's terms is think if you have a property called property a is probably at a gain, you can sell, take the appreciation, move it to property B.   [00:06:42] Dan Kryzonowski: Okay. It's kind of the same logic that you're owning enough. Or you can pay the taxes, pay a pretty heavy tax. Now in the middle, if your goal is to defer, you can do that. So there's a saying called swap tea drops. Some people they say, ah, they never going to pay and I'm going to take it to the grave.   [00:06:57] Dan Kryzonowski: And part of my legacy, part of my planning for the next generation, that's what a DST can provide. Now that said. What rubs me a little bit wrong as an LP is a lot of these DSTs are only four or 5%. This is all in, not just a prep and I'm like, something just doesn't smell, right. It seems like pretty high in fees and everything else.   [00:07:14] Dan Kryzonowski: Not saying this isn't good product. But , in good faith, I think an operator could pay double digit returns on a DST and still have a healthy return for them for the time and effort to go into it. So, summing up on that, and this is all feedback from our investor base is folks ahead, I'm selling something.   [00:07:30] Dan Kryzonowski: I don't still want to own it. I might take out a little, a few hundred thousand for myself, but the rest I want to defer, let me think about a bit more three to five years. I think at DST particularly a property with double digit returns is going to be a pretty solid niche for the second half of this year.   [00:07:44] Dan Kryzonowski: In the next few years.   [00:07:45] Sam Wilson: How does a DST differ from a 10 31?   [00:07:50] Dan Kryzonowski: And I'm not the all I'm at, I'm not the CPA, the lawyer expert, but the as explained to me is that once again, you on property, You own and operate today. So what's your options. You can keep on owning and operating or you can sell. Now, if you sell, you generally have two options.   [00:08:07] Dan Kryzonowski: One of course you pay your taxes or you own an operate property. B pretty much the same. It's just a different property. Now in the middle. I like to say per se as well, I don't want to own an operate, but I want to maintain the tax benefits. Right? You could go into a DST, many DSTs are a. Usually a portfolio and there's different reasons behind that that generally pay low single digits or mid single digits overall.   [00:08:35] Dan Kryzonowski: But once again, what they are selling is, Hey, here's a diversified portfolio and you're not paying taxes. So, folks that main goal is I want to defer taxes. That's the attraction of the DST now also. What I think is cool historic. They said it's been a portfolio. There's a lot of fees baked into it.   [00:08:51] Dan Kryzonowski: Like anything, the curtains getting pulled off the wizard of Oz per se. And I think it's becoming time like, Hey, here's a pretty slick property that frankly, if I just had cash on the side, I may even consider, it might be a mid-teens IRR for example. So anyways just cool little niches, I think are out there for as, going full circle as folks continue to shop per se.   [00:09:09] Dan Kryzonowski: This is something I think too, not just us, but you know, investment advisors folks that play that role for their families should become a little more aware of   [00:09:17] Sam Wilson: is the DST set up by your firm and then multiple people can in pin roll their properties into the single DST, or is it a DST, each individual sets up and they then roll into your   [00:09:32] Dan Kryzonowski: there's some paperwork and there's folks that are.   [00:09:34] Dan Kryzonowski: Experts that have been around the block a few times , for example, if we at BB go down this route, we're going to partner with there is some paperwork, probably for a different discussion of, for today's call. It has to be completed. But one thing I would be aware of there is a timeline, there is kind of these windows.   [00:09:49] Dan Kryzonowski: That it's much like a 10 31 where it can't be, Hey, we sold the property and X days ago, and there's three days to go before I have to pay taxes. You have to get moving a little bit sooner. So, as I just spitball this in conversation, folks are saying, well, yeah, I'd like to sell maybe may, maybe June.   [00:10:05] Dan Kryzonowski: These are conversations I had back in April and March, even. So people are, I think they're aware at least that if they want to defer taxes, you really have to start thinking a good few months ahead. So I compliment, you and our community for sharing this on the podcast. So this is now kind of something that people do in their mental checklist as they look at their.   [00:10:25] Sam Wilson: Right. No, I think that's great. That's absolutely great. Tell me, what are you guys? What are you guys investing in? I know you, you do industrial multifamily and you even mentioned student housing. What are you guys doing right now to find opportunity at BV?   [00:10:38] Dan Kryzonowski: Yeah. So, the benefit being boots on the ground in Texas for many years, particularly in the two largest cities Dallas, Houston is we tend to find some pretty good off market opportunities and I get it, it's a buy high, sell higher, but I think it would be shown over the decades is certainty of execution.   [00:10:54] Dan Kryzonowski: For example, our industrial fund we closed on four properties in four Q last year. So we also have that ability. Something a little unique I think we can all pick on our California friends here. They weren't as versed in student housing. Let's just say occupancy was comically low.   [00:11:10] Dan Kryzonowski: We have the ability to come in at a great, very favorable cap rate. Which in turn we share those benefits. So those are a few things, sorry. That was my I, they call it my birthday buzzer that went off, sorry to scare you there on the backend. Otherwise it's something you didn't mention, but you know, folks that know me I'm still extremely bullish on self storage and why is that?   [00:11:29] Dan Kryzonowski: I feel storage is now it's a natural extension of the housing experience. So when I say housing, living, living in the 21st century, a few things on that. So, historically we can joke storage was for stuff that we really didn't need or, kind of the crap as they would say, what it's changed into.   [00:11:49] Dan Kryzonowski: I think in COVID show this as folks know, like, Hey, if I can even find an extra bedroom, I'm paying at least a grand in rent or sitting in Austin, it could be in the hundreds of thousands of a house. So with that in case I don't want to feel like a truly hoarding, I want to use storage. And it's not just for the Christmas tree it's it could be for your kids.   [00:12:07] Dan Kryzonowski: Winter clothes can be for your tax documents, some pretty important stuff here. That's becoming whether it's literally at a storage facility or onsite, say I have an apartment complex or something that you consciously build that. In your garage, but most people aren't going to go through that effort.   [00:12:19] Dan Kryzonowski: They're going to defer cause it's still a pretty favorable cost. So with that, I still think there's a very healthy appetite for storage. There's also specialized storage for folks of higher income. Think of the Tesla crowd pick your zip code. With six figure income plus there's many of these.   [00:12:33] Dan Kryzonowski: So they call it a very exclusive man-cave. One of my buddies said he couldn't say that his lawyer said he couldn't say that, but, frankly, there's some of that out there. So there's a whole bunch of types of storage that go into it. And, I think it really comes down to, is folks want to declutter even today, some folks might say shit, I can't have.   [00:12:49] Dan Kryzonowski: A crib in the background. Cause my, my newborns and I was six years old, things like that. So it leads into storage. So I think it's kind of a natural extension of especially as cultures are emerging too, folks want to do this. Not just even climate controls, you're talking for boat are B, we talked about the Tesla, the fun storage, a lot of folks are refurbing.   [00:13:08] Dan Kryzonowski: Think of the Kmarts, the Woolworths of the world. They're being referred to the storage project being in the middle of the country. So, yeah, a lot of folks it's becoming a natural, I think, way of life in the 21st century. And I don't think people are already crazy stuff that some of the stories, as I said, it's just folks get used to it.   [00:13:23] Dan Kryzonowski: They get used to it at a price point. You check in every three to six months to move some inventory for your personal and you go from there.   [00:13:31] Sam Wilson: Yeah. And I think you bring up some really interesting nuances. I think the storage space that most people aren't considering, and you call it specialized storage.   [00:13:40] Sam Wilson: And certainly we're seeing that demand on the RV and boat storage side of things. It's. It's insane. Just from the delivery side alone, they had no place to put them, but I also think it's interesting how you clearly said look the days of just storing piles of useless clothes in general.   [00:13:57] Sam Wilson: I think those are not behind us. Cause everybody there's still going to be days of piles of useless junk, but it's also it's changing. It is becoming smaller homes. People move into the tight, tighter spaces. And like you said, if it's a few hundred grand for an extra bedroom that you're not going to use, why not just get a rough storage unit for a hundred bucks a month?   [00:14:15] Sam Wilson: Okay. We can put all our tax documents and our Christmas trees and all our other random stuff in there. One of the, one of the storage, specialized storage things that I've looked at and obviously not invested in, but I think it's really interesting. Have you seen those like high class, like you call a man-cave, but they also make them, they make them for boat and RV storage where they're actually selling the.   [00:14:35] Sam Wilson: So they, they build this super swanky facility, with wash bays and clean out this and detailed crews and everything else. And they sell you your man-cave. So they'll maybe build 200 units and sell them each off their, the parcel amount and make actually sell them by the unit, create an HOA, basically for the storage facility.   [00:14:51] Sam Wilson: That's specialized storage   [00:14:53] Dan Kryzonowski: is definitely specialized storage. Yeah. I know it's out there and it'll continue to be in, certain zip codes for sure. Yeah, for   [00:14:59] Sam Wilson: sure. And I think that's a really, just a a neat way to look at that know there's lots of runway there for a variety of reasons.   [00:15:06] Sam Wilson: I think that's the other thing that people have said in the storage market all along is that no matter what the economy, there's reasons that people want stories. So it's either up-sizing downsizing, changing life, changing careers, moving it's always in fashion. What are you guys doing right now to take advantage of the the kind of the market dynamics that surrounds.   [00:15:27] Sam Wilson: Yeah.   [00:15:27] Dan Kryzonowski: For me, like a lot of us on the call, I'm a hybrid. I have a, fortunately I've built up a pretty sizeable retirement accounts, self-directed accounts, solo, 401k, food storage. We've had some myself as an LPN investor and those that I've introduced over the years. So I've had some, I'd say pretty sizable and attractive exits and like anything, every few years I call it the next generation of storage, whether somebody is up and coming or they're coming from some recent exits in multi-family.   [00:15:53] Dan Kryzonowski: Folks that are long, maybe, call it two to six facilities, but their goal is to get to 20. So, so far, so good. I've probably invested with four, I'd say newer folks to the semen storage and whether it's development, we're on track for development, or if it's a value add, it's pane out as it's supposed to be at the moment.   [00:16:11] Dan Kryzonowski: So, I'm excited and it varies, some folks are doing strictly. Everything's automated from when you book there's no humans in any way, shape or form. Are there folks are a little more old school. And then as we talked about kind of the luxury storage, that's just kind of a really unique fund model that I still think has tremendous upside.   [00:16:29] Dan Kryzonowski: Yeah,   [00:16:30] Sam Wilson: absolutely. Now BB capital also invest in multifamily is that. Yeah. The backbone   [00:16:35] Dan Kryzonowski: of BV historically isn't multifamily is a bit more DFW total exits of over 250 million to date. So, and it's been a good mix of, as I alluded to before our student housing, workforce housing, some development, some value add I think the new thing once again, just Texas is still real boots on the ground state.   [00:16:54] Dan Kryzonowski: We do have a lot of folks with the BD logo. So we found. Even in this market, the needle in the haystack of a piece of land that's, I don't want to say pennies on the dollar, but less than a dollar, which is a minor miracle these days. Right. We can do stuff with it. We found a track over a hundred acres in Galveston there.   [00:17:11] Dan Kryzonowski: I think the only one out there, a lot of folks want a second house. I want a beach. So it's a little things like, Hey, as an investor, in addition to getting double digit returns, how about you on first look at buying one of these plots. That's very important to some folks. So, we've done some really strong surveys.   [00:17:25] Dan Kryzonowski: Obviously a lot of one-on-one some more exclusive events with 20 or so folks and. We're going to hop across the states of the large cities for that to really get feedback. And that's what we'll, that's, what's kind of led outside of the fund to our our single asset offerings over the past year.   [00:17:42] Sam Wilson: Got it, man. That's fantastic. Dan, we're almost out of time here, but I've got one last question for you for people that know you well, they know that you've got extensive background in the self-directed IRA space. What do you see as the number one opportunity for capital raisers in the self directed IRA?   [00:17:59] Dan Kryzonowski: My suggestion I've seen this play out time and time again, is that in your communication to your investors, to your prospects, one sentence saying, did you know, you can use your retirement dollars in my next deal? That alone from my experience sponsors tend to get about 10 to 20% of their raise.   [00:18:16] Dan Kryzonowski: Whether it's through an STI rate with the legacy custodian or solo 401k. And of course that ties to rocket dollar very powerful, especially as more folks are moving self-employed for better or worse. The solo 401k is pretty exciting. So yeah, I just think that, and also for folks that are thinking of JV and Koji pain with.   [00:18:34] Dan Kryzonowski: Your old corporate money. This is a great pocket of money that frankly you can't touch anyways without paying taxes for a while. So take advantage of it now. Anybody with any questions just ping me on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is great. Say you heard it here and we'll have a chat.   [00:18:50] Sam Wilson: Awesome, Dan, and that's my last question here for the show is if we do want to get in touch with you, what's the best way to do.   [00:18:55] Dan Kryzonowski: Yeah, LinkedIn is great. And then I joke, if you can spell it, you can get it. And we'll get you a few pennies off of your rocket dollar. And for fellow sponsors out there I'm happy to share my VIP code, so, please reach out one alone.   [00:19:06] Sam Wilson: Awesome, Dan, thanks again for your time today. It was great to have you back on the show.   [00:19:09] Dan Kryzonowski: great seeing you brother.
