Sexual Violence Against Black Men

Many (1 out of 4) Black Women have experienced sexual violence. In fact, sexual violence is one of the worst crimes against humanity, specifically as it was employed and monetized during Chattel Slavery. The impact is felt generationally in our relationships, in our bodies, and most importantly, in our sense of self and personal power. We know this historical trauma, and because we can talk about it, we can get the support to heal it. But what about the GROSS sexual trauma and violence against Black Men? Why is it not included in our history books or addressed in society now, when Black Men are molested and violently raped in our current society?   This week, Dr. Venus talks about having empathy and compassion for Black Men and their trauma, and how we can start to heal WITH them instead of prioritizing our pain over theirs. She shares 5 horrifying ways that enslaved African men were sexually exploited throughout slavery, and how we can begin to create a safe space for Black Men to open up.   Key Takeaways:  [2:23] This is a conversation about sexual violence against Black Men, both then and now. The reason why we are talking about this is that Dr. Venus is really contending with her own internal racism and sexism against Black Men. If we were talking about women and sexual trauma, there are libraries of readings, but she was shocked to the degree that there's nothing really out there about Black Men. [4:14] We relate to Black Men the way that White Supremacy has taught us to, and we think it's the truth. Because we've had bad experiences with Black Men and been wounded viciously by Black Men multiple times, we see all Black Men as bad. Dr. Venus validates that you have had this experience, and it was real. She is also not talking like a theorist, but a survivor. The damage is there, but on the other side of healing, we can see someone as a human being that has been damaged and wounded. [6:16] Dr. Venus gives an example of seeing that her mother was wounded and giving someone grace for their traumas. [9:22] How trapped is a Black Man that can't say anything because no one will believe them? Black Men are supposed to be strong. As far as history is concerned, they're not even people. [10:17] When Black Men act out after being wounded, we equate it more with character and go after the tropes of him being lazy, no good, or trifling. How come we don't account for history? [13:00] Black Boys are completely unprotected not just from men, but from older women. The women are taking advantage of Black younger boys, and those boys end up being with our daughters. We believe that since he is strong and he can fight, he won't be raped. [15:38] Dr. Venus hasn't had compassion for Black Men, until now. The reason she can is that she has been healing her father wounds. [18:35] You create a safe space when you share your truth. When Black Men feel safe to share their story with no ridicule or judgment, it is healing and they will feel like it's okay to open up. [19:25] Women in general, and this includes Black Women, are trained to be self-reflective earlier than Black Men. Black girls are trained to go read books, while Black boys are trained to go play with toys or play sports. Black Women are the most educated group in North America, while Black Men are not given the time to think through things. [22:47] The ways that men were sexually exploited and abused by White Masters: Aristocrats often used enslaved Black Men as a form of sexual entertainment. They were lined up and were laughed at, scrutinized for their body, and humiliated. Enslaved men were castrated or sexually mutilated as a form of punishment. Enslaved men were often raped by both the slave owners themselves and forced to have sex with their master's wives. Black Men were sexually exploited and abused by their White Masters in a horrific punishment called buck breaking. This form of sexual abuse was very popular in the Caribbean and it involved White Supremacists, slave owners, and merchants, raping a male slave in front of the public to embarrass him and make him feel less than a man. Breeding farms that exploited the sexuality of healthy Black Men, not caring if it was their own family members that they were impregnating. [30:48] Dr. Venus realized that Black Women, herself included, have internalized racism and sexism against Black Men that we don't even know we have. It's so real for us, just like White Supremacy is very real for White people. It's not personal, it's just that we have drunk the Kool-Aid. [35:59] When you don't have a safe space, to tell the truth, you will implode. Black Men are wounded, and they don't know they are wounded, because no one has taken the time to listen to them talk. [37:10] When we can relate to Black Men as human beings with feelings who have faults, who are amazing, and who deserve to be heard, that is when the healing will begin. [39:59] If we are committed to thriving as a community, we as Black Women are going to have to step into the emotional maturity and spirituality it takes to relate to Black Men as humans that are fabulous despite their flaws. And until we do that, we will not be able to empower their power.                                                                                Quotes: “Anything a person has done to you has been done to them.” “I haven't had compassion for his humanity, until now.” “For all my brothers who are listening or will listen, I apologize. I'm sorry that I privileged my pain over your humanity.” “As Black women, we are the White Supremacists in our relationship to Black Men and our communities and our families. And it's not personal to you or me. It literally is that we drank the Kool-Aid.” “I'm committed that we relate to Black Men as human beings, with feelings, who have faults, who are amazing, who deserve to be heard and seen just like you and me.” We want White people to see us as equals, so how can we expect that from them when we don't give it to each other?”   Mentioned: Dr. Venus Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Amazon Pilot  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Complete Series (https://www.youtube.com/c/DrVenusOpalReese) Pre-order the GurrlApp here: www.TheGurrlApp.com/presale  Free Gift When You Join The Truth Tribe The Black Woman Millionaire Hot Mess Edition   ATTENTION BLACK WOMEN:   If you want to be THE FIRST to know about ALL things Dr. Venus' tech start-up, fill out the form below so you get access FIRST to updates, launches, and the behind the scene scoop! http://bit.ly/DrVenusAppInfo   RESOURCES Rethinking Rufus: Sexual Violations of Enslaved Men (Gender and Slavery Ser., 2) 5 horrifying ways enslaved African men were sexually exploited and abused by their white masters Behind the Pain Nobody Talks About Sexual Abuse of Black Boys Mychal Denzel Smith An NFL player says United ignored his reports of sexual assault.

Tom Bilyeu is shaking up multiple industries on his way to impact a billion brains in the Universe! Boy, was this a fun interview to do! Tom runs a legit film studio out of his house and I was delighted to be connected to him via my friend Danny Miranda. Tom did not disappoint. We discussed his epic careers -- he's now on at least his third incarnation after founding Quest Nutrition (and selling it for a billion dollars!), then starting a multimillion subscriber YouTube Channel / media empire called "Impact Theory", and now as a creator and evangelist for NFT's. We discuss his journey. We discussed the scientific method and I enjoyed his take on being an experimenter -- though he did not agree to change the name of his channel to "Impact Experiment" despite my pleas! Lastly, I found our discussion of finding meaning without children particularly touching. Tom's as honest and earnest as they come. I found that all the more refreshing given the status, wealth, and power he's made alongside his wife and partner for life, in business and life, Lisa. We discussed: Regrets in life? What's wealth for? Can't just be for Lambos and Yachts! What's the most precious resource? How to stay hungry? How to know when money success leads to drinking your Kool Aid?

Host Mark Call has an interesting suggestion about how the 'split' now dividing the formerly 'united' States -- and ultimately the whole world -- may play out: many people will succumb to the coming "Internet of Things" and become one of those things. Others will "come out of her," in every conceivable way, while there just might still be time. And many, many more, unfortunately, will take the Poison Poke, drink the Kool-Aid, believe the lie, and just plain die. Soon. So this show covers imminent events in two different spheres. The "metaverse," which is basically the Big Tech Socialist Media Complex's term for The Matrix, will be the planned, preferred New Drug for those who "take the wrong pill" (aka 'blue, for those that remember the movie.) But those who know what's coming, and avoid that trap, will have to "Beat the Crack-Up Boom," first. And it's almost here. The Rush to the Exits is next.

The Modern Therapist's Survival Guide with Curt Widhalm and Katie Vernoy

Conspiracy Theories in Your Office Curt and Katie chat about clients who bring conspiracy theories into therapy. We talk about differentiating between psychosis and believing in conspiracy theories, the characteristics of folks who may be likely to subscribe to these theories, and the importance of the relationship in working with these folks. We also look at steps we would like professional organizations to take to support clinicians. It's time to reimagine therapy and what it means to be a therapist. To support you as a whole person and a therapist, your hosts, Curt Widhalm and Katie Vernoy talk about how to approach the role of therapist in the modern age. In this episode we talk about: How to handle when clients bring conspiracy theories into your office Distinguishing between delusions, shared psychosis, and conspiracy theories Reality testing, obsessive research, and other factors that may distinguish between psychosis and conspiracy theory The impact of internet research and social media algorithms The characteristics of folks who are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories How fear of uncertainty, lack of trust can play into this dynamic Societal impacts like advertising certainty The different responsibility that therapists have when someone brings in a conspiracy theory Hesitation in addressing these theories both in the room and at the professional org level The continuum of engagement with conspiracy theories (from “entertainment” to going down the rabbit hole) The level of investment in the theory, groups forming around these theories, and cults The risk factors and legal/ethical responsibilities related to harm Allen Lipscomb's BRUH modality (Bonding Recognition Understanding and Healing) The problem with direct challenging The importance of identifying is it a conspiracy theory or is someone actually out to get you, especially with clients who are in traditionally marginalized communities Building trust within the relationship through deep understanding of the client's experiences Societal measures that can help (like deplatforming leaders of the theories) Starting from compassion and curiosity; managing reactions Exploring the nuance of challenging irrational fears versus conspiracy theories Seeking common ground and identifying impacts The call to action to professional organizations for guidance and taking a stance (and the understanding of why they balk at doing so) Our Generous Sponsor: Trauma Therapist Network Trauma is highly prevalent in mental health client populations and people are looking for therapists with specialized training and experience in trauma, but they often don't know where to start. If you've ever looked for a trauma therapist, you know it can be hard to discern who knows what and whether or not they're the right fit for you. There are so many types of trauma and so many different ways to heal.

This new site has articles, resources and podcasts for learning about trauma and its effects, as well as a directory exclusively for trauma therapists to let people know how they work and what they specialize in, so potential clients can find them. Trauma Therapist Network therapist profiles include the types of trauma specialized in, populations served and therapy methods used, making it easier for potential clients to find the right therapist who can help them.  The Network is more than a directory, though.

Here are your hosts, Curt Widhalm and Katie Vernoy.   Curt Widhalm  00:47 Welcome back modern therapists, this is the modern therapist Survival Guide. I'm Curt Widhalm with Katie Vernoy. And this is the podcast about all things therapy related for therapists the things that we do the things that we face with clients, and literally everything else. Even the things that you don't know that are out there, we are today talking about conspiracy theories. And are we are we actually treading into a conspiracy theory podcast here, like, I'm just now realizing that, but what to do, how to handle when clients are bringing conspiracy theories into the office. Now, as we're looking at this episodes, we don't want to necessarily speak to any particular conspiracy theories that are out there. So we're just going to use a philan conspiracy theory as an example throughout this episode. So the theory that we're working with today is that the company is behind seeded grapes are all just a money laundering front because no one buys seated grapes on purpose.   Katie Vernoy  02:02 I think that's a great one. Okay.   Curt Widhalm  02:04 We're gonna work with that. So do you have clients who were talking conspiracy theories? Bringing in seeded grapes into your sessions?   Katie Vernoy  02:17 Not currently. Actually. I had some folks previously pretty recently, but I think the thing I want to distinguish first, because I think that there are conspiracy theories, and then there's also delusions, shared psychosis and and other types of psych psychotic symptoms. And so because I've had clients that have psychotic symptoms and believe that the world is out to get them, but how do we differentiate conspiracy theory believers from folks who have psychosis? Because for me, I feel like psychosis has other elements to it, that potentially lead to that diagnosis versus someone who doesn't have a mental health condition, but has beliefs that are along the lines of conspiracy theory, how do you make that distinction?   Curt Widhalm  03:08 The profession has not really defined clearly the difference between the two other than we know that they're different. So if you're asking me, there's   Katie Vernoy  03:20 I just did ask you. Yeah, and I was just doing.   Curt Widhalm  03:25 So if you're asking me, it's a focus on ideas, it's more of the approach to the ideas than it is necessarily about the ideas themselves. That when I've worked with clients who have presented with delusions or with psychosis, or something else, there's a certain level of reality testing that we go through that those clients response to, that does not show the obsessiveness into the research of whatever YouTube videos are out there or spending the amount of time going into them. They're not alienating themselves away from friends and family in the way that conspiracy theorists tend to do. And as I see with some of the clients and some of the people who who consults with me, it's more of the actions around what the beliefs are that pushes something into kind of that conspiracy theorist territory. This is evidenced by some of the clients who might be sending me several YouTube links from somebody who got their doctorates off of, you know, some website someplace who's posting 30 minute videos about seeded grape industry and several of them and talking about how their family members will stop talking to them because of their beliefs. So, to me, it's more of the qualitative actions around how they approach it as opposed to necessarily the content of what they're bringing in.   Katie Vernoy  05:10 I agree, I think there's, with the clients that I've had with psychotic symptoms, they seem to just believe and know it to be true. There isn't that research level. I agree with that. I think there's also an element of, in fact, they see proof to the contrary, and fold it in to the delusion or the hallucination that they're experiencing, and it stays in this realm, that's very different. I do think that folks with psychosis can alienate the people around them. And I think, in fact, do they, you know, I've had clients where they believe that you're part of the conspiracy against them, and, and then either decide to meet with you anyway or not, I've had, you know, different folks who argue with, you know, the voices in their head, you know, to try to not do therapy or whatever, or believe family members are part of these larger things and alienate themselves. So I think it's, it's kind of like we know it when we see it. Right. You know, whereas conspiracy theories, sometimes it's perfectly reasonable and rational folks that have kind of gone down this social media rabbit hole, where, you know, basically all of the the algorithms are, are designed to give them more and more information about the seeded grape industry that were as someone with more of a kind of a standalone psychosis or delusion, doesn't have that it's more that they are building things. And this means this, which means this, which means this and it's it's their own logic versus something that they're finding within more established means that that they believe they're doing the correct research, but they've actually gone down these these rabbit holes.   Curt Widhalm  06:53 There's Psychology Today article that is the mind of a conspiracy theorist. This was part of their November 2020. Magazine. We'll link to this in our show notes, you can find those over at MTS g podcast.com. But this article talks about particular personality traits that are more likely to lead to people believing in conspiracy theories. And those things include things like low levels of trust, increase needs for closure, feelings of powerlessness, low self esteem, paranoid thinking, and a need to feel unique. And that these are rather stable personality traits that conspiracy theorists hold across their lifetime. And guides us into probably the crux of this episode, which is, what do we do with this, when these kinds of clients come into our office, when they talk with us about the things going on the coded messages that they might be receiving or spending inordinate amounts of time on the internet with that, it does help to look at the combination of these personality traits as part of how you might want to look at guiding your response.   Katie Vernoy  08:19 And as you were talking about the types of folks I just want to touch on that first, is it when you were talking about the traits it just reminded me of the conversation that we had with Dr. Tereza Capelos on treating political reactionism. And I think that there's there may be some some ties between kind of political extremism and belief in conspiracy theories, if there's some overlap in those those things. So I just wanted to comment on that. I will link to that podcast episode in the show notes as well. But it seems like there could be a perfect storm around this.   Curt Widhalm  08:56 Sure. It makes sense when you've got a low level of trust and the need for closure. Yeah, that if you're not trusting the information that is being presented, and you have that drive for needing things to be in nice, neat little boxes, that that sets up that profile of people who are always going to want just that little bit more, not believing that everything has been quite stated yet. And that leads to the opportunity to start filling in boxes that may not actually be there or partial boxes that kind of exists and haven't. And we've really seen this play out in kind of real time over the last couple of years where people in response to the scientific methods of round the COVID 19 pandemic. Don't follow along the scientific paths. have real time science, which is, oh, we've got an idea. We've tested this, this idea doesn't work, or this idea only partially works. Yeah. And the belief that either that is not factual or that it's absolutely factual and why are they keep looking? They must not be telling us something that is widely prevalent at this point.   Katie Vernoy  10:25 Sure. And I think that there when when we look at a lack of trust, there's societal efforts towards us feeling very decided. Very sure. In what what steps we must take, I mean, the marketing does that this is the answer to your problem purchase this thing. And it's the answer to your problem. And you know, the quick fixes and all those things, the setting with uncertainty, or the setting with, you know, kind of partially conflicting messages or those types of things is not something that we are really encouraged to do by a lot of the content we consume. So it makes sense that there are going to be during times of uncertainty that we want the security of a conspiracy theory, because it feels so definite, and it feels like you know, more than someone else, and it feels like you have the true answers, and so that you're safe, even if all the people around you are not. I think for me, the the part that becomes really hard is that there are if someone brings it into a therapy session, there's this, though, there's a different responsibility that we have, as therapists, let me say it that way, like as a therapist, we have a different responsibility to our clients, then a family member or a family member can just be like, yeah, that's crazy, dude, like, stop it. Whereas with us, as a therapist, there's, there's a responsibility to take care of this client. And there's a responsibility to sustain the therapeutic relationship, there's a responsibility to do and work in service of the client. And so to me, I think the the difficulty becomes, at what point do you push hard back on a conspiracy theory that's very harmful to a client? And at what point do you enter the world of the client and, and help them to kind of process what they're experiencing? I mean, I know we're gonna go into a few different articles that talk about how therapists are managing it. But one of the things and a I think it was a Mashable article that you sent over to be heard that the first paragraph was like, APA doesn't want to actually come on record with how to address conspiracy theories,   Curt Widhalm  12:44 why not? What are they hiding?   Katie Vernoy  12:48 Because they don't want to piss off people that maybe support them, right? And potentially, they don't want to stand up against what a lot of people are saying as conservative rhetoric as conspiracy theory. And we're clearly not saying that we're talking about seeded grapes. But I think that there's that element of, there's some shying away of talking about how do we actually handle this.   Curt Widhalm  13:11 And I think a lot of our tendencies are, this is uncomfortable, we don't want to piss off people. And so therefore, we're just going to smile politely to our clients, and then just return back to whatever's already in their treatment plan. Yeah. But there probably is times to push back on this. Because going back to the Psychology Today article, they point to Timothy McVeigh, the person behind the 1995, Oklahoma City bombing, as having violent fantasies that started out in conspiracy thinking, and, well, those level of things are rare. You did bring up our episode with trees capitalist as far as Yeah, that extremism can form some of the roots in this and it might lead to lower levels of vandalism and harm people destroying seated grapes, because right within this, you probably have a responsibility as a therapist to not just brush things off is his centric sort of hobby thinking. I've seen some literature around that there's kind of three groups of people when it comes to conspiracy theory type stuff is there's those who don't believe in anything that's kind of not scientific at all. There's the people who look at conspiracy theory type stuff with no kind of an entertainment value sort of thing. And then there's the people with the other extreme end who are alienating friends and family. They're staying up late into the night They're missing work because they're not caring for themselves. And it's a continuum. And some of the people who start in some of that entertainment sort of area, start going down the rabbit hole, and potentially do slide into some of this more extreme ideology and rhetoric. And especially with things like the internet, you mentioned the algorithms earlier of ending up in echo chambers, where they're only hearing people from the same viewpoints that end up developing them even further down the rabbit hole.   Katie Vernoy  15:37 And I think when there is that investment, in a conspiracy theory, or a range a, a family of conspiracy theories, and there is a group that forms around it, I think what can happen is that the investment is so high in it being true because of whatever it provides to them. But I think there There can also be an element of others, helping each other to overcome any objections from family members. From other things. I did a little bit of reading around cults and different things like that. And I think once you get a group of conspiracy theorists, I don't know when it becomes a cult, but I think it's something where some of those mechanisms of really getting into someone's head whether it's these algorithms or people and and really creating a space that allows them to disregard everything else in their life and just continue to support this conspiracy theory. I think that becomes more obviously, a mental health issue and a primary mental health issue. I think when we're talking about when do we have to step forward, I think that that knowing how to work with colds and knowing how to help someone, you know, whether it's deprogramming or whatever you want to call it, I think that that's a that's another conversation. That's not what we're talking about today. But when someone is starting to do things that are harmful to themselves to others to property, I mean, at some at certain points, even just as a therapist, we're mandated to take action to make sure that people are not causing harm. But I think the the nuance that that I think you're looking for and I think what we want to talk about today are folks who have these low, low, low level conspiracy theories that they believe in, that could rise to the level of violence or destruction of property, and how we intervene, where we don't alienate our clients. So that they start they keep going down the rabbit hole, but we're not with them, and we can't then take some of those protective action for them and for the people around them.   Curt Widhalm  17:46 One of the biggest signs is people who believe in one conspiracy theory are susceptible to believing in more and part of this is just in social expansion that says you start diving into some ideas that people that you would be conversing with in those areas would also be bringing in other conspiracy ideas. You know, not only is it seeded grapes but now it's seeded watermelons like why did those exist still What didn't we get that figured out? Like   Katie Vernoy  18:23 yeah, I think we've started a whole new conspiracy theory around seeded seeded fruit I'm sure that we can you know if you have the the biological knowledge of why we still have these seated grapes and seeded watermelons, please send us an email at curt@therapyreimagined.com   Curt Widhalm  18:42 only if these are videos by doctors and poorly lit rooms. At least half an hour in length. But in working with these, going to this Mashable article they interviewed Dr. Alan Lipscomb, he is a social worker who has worked a lot with black men grappling with trauma and grief and noticed with many of his clients that conspiracy theories became a reoccurring theme in their sessions really related to things like race related microaggressions that even started with things like the clients talking about, like the Tuskegee experiments, where the government purposely infected black people with syphilis and seeing the effects of these kinds of treatments,   Katie Vernoy  19:43 which is not a conspiracy, which is not - it's true,   Curt Widhalm  19:46 which is true.   Katie Vernoy  19:48 Yes.   Curt Widhalm  19:49 But this helps to push some of the mistrust of the government things   Katie Vernoy  19:55 of course,   Curt Widhalm  19:56 Which not going to blame it Anybody coming from this community with stuff like this in the history of having a healthy mistrust of government? Sure. And even in the response here, I love the acronym for Dr. Lips comms approach to this. It's called the bra approach. Now, I'm cynical enough that this could also be just like, bra, honestly. But this actually is an acronym that stands for bonding, recognition, understanding and healing. And even in the way that we're introducing his work with his particular population, comes with a place of understanding, yeah, I see where these people are coming from I, I agree that some of these interpretations are going to be natural responses. And it takes building trust with these clients, to help them work through some of the mistrust issues. And that includes working on the trust in the therapeutic relationship. Some of my clients who are coming in and talking about the money laundering that goes with CDB grapes right now will continuously kind of still test me with some of the things that they're talking about, Oh, you must not believe in seeded grapes at all that, you know, I hear you, I've, I've seen some seeded grapes before, like, these are things that you're not going to get anywhere with these kinds of clients by directly challenging them with your own beliefs. Otherwise, you're going to be, you know, seen as in on the conspiracy yourself.   Katie Vernoy  21:45 Yeah. Yeah, I guess the thing that I want to point out because I think with the the example, in the Mashable article, I think, the the other element of the conspiracy theories were, you know, kind of based in the reality of the medical harm against the black community, folks were believing that there were other things happening during the COVID 19 pandemic and with vaccines. So, to me, I think, the difficulty in sorting out, is it a conspiracy theory? Or are people actually out to get you -  I think that part is really important, especially in marginalized communities. I think starting from a place of this as a conspiracy theory, can be very harmful. And so and you may not know that it's a conspiracy theory until you actually have a chance to sit with them and understand and so my thought process is, when you actually take the time to understand someone's perspective, understand the oppression that they're feeling, understand the fears that they have, and trying to sort out how is this impacting you? What evidence can you get for and against, and I think there's a there's an issue with going too much into the evidence with someone that's truly in the in thrall to a conspiracy theory, I think that there has to be a space that it may not be a conspiracy theory, it may be that they're actually being oppressed and marginalized and or people are out to get them. And so I guess I just wanted to comment on that. But I think that there's a need I agree a need for trust within the relationship so that you can truly understand the experience and understand where it's, it's going from my reality to a conspiracy theory.   Curt Widhalm  23:30 Part of what the COVID 19 pandemic has done is it's forced people away from being around people with differing viewpoints in their jobs in public. And therefore they are spending more time online with people who are sharing the same beliefs that you know that algorithm stuff that Katie was referring to earlier. Part of getting into the trusting relationship with your clients, also serves a very long term goal of helping to provide a space for them to think critically about different viewpoints and even potentially, opening up to not hearing from some of the heads of some of the theories that are being driven. We've seen this, we've seen evidence of this being successful with things like the D platforming of people like Alex Jones, that when their messages are no longer allowed on places like Twitter or Facebook or this kind of stuff. The people who have followed them, their rhetoric also becomes less extreme when it comes to some of these conspiracy theories. So keeping in mind that this is a slow and deliberate building of trust with clients means that you really have to watch your own reactions and sessions. You can't be rolling your eyes, you can't be necessarily avoiding conversations about these kinds of things. But having compassion for the starting place of where these clients are coming from, so that way, when they are ready or willing to take that next step with you, that you are seen as a trusted figure in their lives,   Katie Vernoy  25:24 how would you differentiate addressing a conspiracy theory with a client versus addressing a a fear that is gone to a slightly irrational place?   Curt Widhalm  25:38 I don't know that I would approach them much differently. That, at least as far as how I'm hearing, what you're saying, with some of the instances that have come up in my practice, is, in my general response, you know, I'll provide some curious space for Oh, I haven't heard about that, that does come from maybe a more neutral place that allows for me to be a curious thinker of Well, I wonder about, fill in the blank, you know, I wonder about, you know, seated oranges. So those things still exist. Or, you know, something that might be a curious challenge to it that does invite looking at things from from different viewpoints as team members that you would also do with clients who do present with irrational fears, irrational beliefs. Yeah. You know, Never have we ever, you know, just confronted a client in session, been, like, hey, that that irrational fear you have? How about just thinking about it differently? Like, if that was the way things worked, our grad school training would be a lot shorter, but it doesn't work that way. So it was   Katie Vernoy  26:57 it, there isn't Rational Emotive therapy? Isn't that kind of like, that's irrational? Like, isn't that isn't that actually a tried and true therapy.   Curt Widhalm  27:07 I love that Aaron Beck can just yell at clients that they're wrong and that, but it, but even even within REBT, there's the trust in this is somebody you know, you're not just yelling, that's your rational in the first session. You're not just there arguing with clients. And part of this is really understanding that you might get 45-50 minutes out of a week with a client, and they're spending eight hours a day online listening to Joe Rogan or   Katie Vernoy  27:43 the seeded grape industry.   Curt Widhalm  27:45 Yeah.   Katie Vernoy  27:47 I think the thing that I'm I'm sensing from the way that you work as well as this is the way that I work is that there is a connection with the client that then allows for some exploration of what's going on. I think this is another distinguisher, between conspiracy theory versus kind of an irrational fear within a normal kind of anxiety presentation is, is that folks who are anxious think that their anxiety is too high for what they're experiencing. And it seems like folks who with a conspiracy theory feel like they're not afraid enough that this is super dangerous. And so I think, really trying to sort through where someone sits there and being able to honor what is occurring, I think is really important. I think the that part that can get very confusing, I think, you know, and this has happened with me with some of my conspiracy focused psychosis that I've seen, but also I think, with folks who are just very intelligent people that believe things that have been put forward as conspiracy theories, I think what ends up happening is, is I try to connect with the pieces that feel like they are, I don't know what the right word is common ground maybe, and trying to understand the impact of of what they believe on how they behave on their relationships, trying to sort through it from that angle. I think it becomes challenging when there's just such an interweaving of reality and conspiracy theory where you can't just you can't yell at them. It's irrational because it's not completely irrational. There's it's so nuanced and there's so many little pieces that the conversation has to be very rich. And so it goes back to that element of it really has to come from a very strong relationship. And and we need to be able to stay in relationship and and the more we push back, the less light someone in our in our office is going to be able to hang with us if they've really invested in the conspiracy theory.   Curt Widhalm  29:55 This Mashable article has interviewed Dr. Ziv Cohen, the founder and medical director of principal psychiatry in New York City. And Dr. Cohen really calls out that the professional organizations do need to be more involved in providing some guidance in this area. And I can understand why the professional organizations are not. That's because many therapists probably also believe in some conspiracy theories.   Katie Vernoy  30:30 Okay, here we go, here's where we're gonna get all of the feedback on the episode.   Curt Widhalm  30:34 Well, and as a professional organization, we know that their first job duty is to make sure that the continuance of the professional organization exists. And if they are alienating their members, that is potentially a drop in membership, and therefore, they don't want to alienate members. So, even being able to wade into this, Dr. Cohen calls for the professional organizations to take more of a stance and guidance, you know, at least use something like, you know, seated grape industry, as an example, we don't need to necessarily go out and address things. But we do need to work on training clinicians on how to recognize when it does progress from seated grapes to harm and potentially identifying those who are most vulnerable to be acting out violently. And it is a continuum and a slippery slope. So call your professional organizations tell them your thoughts on seated grapes. Don't put any context into it, but make seated grapes happen.   Katie Vernoy  31:52 So I want to actually push back on one of the things that you said, as a profession. Is it not important for us to comment on conspiracy theories that are psychologically harmful to the populace?   Curt Widhalm  32:07 Absolutely, we should.   Katie Vernoy  32:09 Okay, so why would you then say that professional organizations shouldn't address that, but should address how therapists   Curt Widhalm  32:16 I'm saying, cuz I'm, I'm picturing the heads of these organizations and what their response is the pearl clutching that they will have in looking at their membership, and giving them an out to be able to walk the line in between what they should be saying and how they can package it nicely to actually start presenting this information.   Katie Vernoy  32:40 So you're trying to get to a place where they would actually do something versus actually commenting on what they really should be doing.   Curt Widhalm  32:47 Exactly, yes. So   Katie Vernoy  32:49 alright, that's fair. Yeah.   Curt Widhalm  32:51 Check out our show notes at MPs G podcast, join our Facebook group, the veteran therapist group, follow us on our social media and continue to drink the modern therapist Kool Aid.

The dates were September 21st to September 26th, 2021. If you're listening to this 5, 10, 20 years later, maybe I'm dead and gone. I hope this provides you inspiration to set aside contempt, try new things. Go, go deeper within and connect with your heart center. It's such a funny way to say that if. You'd told me, uh, 15 years ago, 10 years ago from this date, as I record this September 27th, 2021, I had a thrown your ass out the door, connect with your heart center. Shee-it! I'm from Wyoming. We don't connect with our heart center. We do try to. We do... That doesn't...it's just that verbiage. I gotta figure out a new, uh, a way to bridge the heart centered. What's it like? What's that? What's a fifth grade. What's the way a fifth grader or fourth grader or a third grader would say heart centered. They'd say we do. What's fun. How about that?Mischa Z: 02:13 Do what's fun. Not what society is telling us is fun. What, you know, as a kid, I want to go do this cause it's fun. And it's my purpose. And when someone's like, "why are you playing with GI Joes dork"? You're like, "cause I like GI Joes", or why you playing with, or why are you whatever crazy imagination I used to have when I was a kid. There you go. What a beautiful tangent again. I am running out of juice, so I hope, I hope I've got enough juice on my phone to make it, uh, at least eight minutes. Um, so yeah, Funnel Hacking Live 2021. Um, clearly the, enthusiasm was planted in me at that convention Funnel Hacking Live convention, is clearly still coursing through my veins. Um, but I was all in and I'm all, all in Kool-Aid, that jug of Kool-Aid that you see on the table. I'm drinking it. Yes, indeed I am. May have another glass please? Um, where was I going to go with this? Uh, so yeah, Funnel Hacking Live like...there's this whole idea. Part of the message of... "morning"... of, uh, Russell Brunson's message and many people's messages actually. But I, you know, I really started hearing it and internalizing it from Russell Brunson's teachings. Um, his methods, his processes are who do you want to help?Mischa Z: 04:06 Why? Your, how. Your why? Or your what and your why? Yeah, that's what it is, is your what and your why? Or your who and your why...Whatever it is. But then you...then you figure out what do they need and want, how can I serve them, ask them. And, um, then you create your product. You don't create your product and then try to find out where it's going to fit. Although a lot of people created beautiful companies, that way. The Russell Brunson, Dot Com Secrets is very much, find your who, your why, then communicate with them on how you can serve them. And so on the way to my ClickFunnels on to funnel hiking live, I had some preconceived ideas or I had done a lot of work to figure out who I thought, well, who am I, who was in for the last year?Mischa Z: 05:10 And my why? Like what brought me into the two comma club, X coaching program within the ClickFunnels community. Um, but it was for what last year definitely helped pull me forward. Um, but it was to help perhaps divorced single dads or, you know, high-performing males who, who, um, you know, lost their way, shall we say, lost their way, had some upheavals in their life and lost their way. And I think that's a great community to support, but so I thought that was my, that was my who until Funnel Hacking Live. And then the other thing is don't, you know, don't be open to how you can serve them, right? So that's my, who I've got this idea of. I'm going to create some sort of a program to help those sorts of people, quit their jobs and be, stay at home dads like I did, which was the best decision I ever made.Mischa Z: 06:12 Um, one of them spent a couple getting off the sauce was another. Age, 17 years and nine months old, quit the drinking and the drug. And one day at a time strongly encourage that for anybody who's listening. Sauce was no no bueno for my life. But anyway, I would say that, you know, I did this, uh, Kyle Cease thing. This Kyle Cease thing was called the Complete Journey. And it really helped me tap into my heart center. That thing that's fun for me. What is, what is it that I, that will bring my, bring me joy? Not what I think will bring me joy, which might be climbing the wrong ladder. But which ladder will truly bring me joy? Um, so yeah, I did the Complete Journey. Epic. It's epic. Go do it. Kyle cease, Google that the Complete Journey. It's 21 days perhaps can transform your life. If you're wondering what your, um, if you're struggling at work or, or struggling with your kids or your career sucks. And you're like, I know I need to be heading a different direction. I know I need to pivot. That can help. As well as so many other people can help with that. The, A Four mentioned Tony Robbins, for example, oh my gosh, the clock keeps ticking.Mischa Z: 07:51 Um, so many things to talk about. There's going to be like a part four or five and six lost track of what parts is it. This is, but, um, so yeah, it's going to be to help high-performing males who have fallen off the horse, get back on the horse and stay there with "a new opportunity". And so I was like, I'm going to find my new opportunity, which is going to be some sort of a coaching thing or course, or this or that. And so I had arrived at the, um, two CC... Or at the Funnel Hacking Live with the idea of helping, you know, the, the, that high performing male get back on the horse. And, uh, and through it...we've been told to be open to how we're going to serve our audience, be open to who our audience is. Refine your avatar. And so, you know, again, right before I got cut off, I got cut off just in case you didn't know. So this might sound a little disjointed all of the sudden, but my phone ran out of power ready, the key moment. Um, and so I had to get home and recharge the phone enough to finish this recording this episode.Mischa Z: 09:27 So I thought I was being open with how I was going to help. You know, be of service to the audience that I'm reaching out to. When a few interactions I'll tell you about on the next episode, part four, I think it's going to be. I had this moment of clarity of, oh my gosh, I'm meant to help 2CCX'ers, not 2CCX-ers, excuse me. I'm meant to serve with a tweaked, a different, a slightly different audience in the slightly different... Realistically, a slightly different product than I was anticipating. Um, so yeah, I, I, sorry, it's a bit fuzzy and I'm channeling massive inspiration coming out of the weekend. And then as I record this, but. I believe the new audience is, um, emerging funnel hackers. And I am here to help emerging funnel hackers get to the 2 Comma Club Award stage. Yep. That's it. And so the tools and fun things that I've been learning throughout my life and really the biggest thing is how to follow instructions and follow the steps to success. Right? Like, that's it. And so, um, I'm gonna, there's just so much more to say so much more to say. So, um, listen to the next episode. Love to all.

Dare I say, life-changing dare I say life-changing there. Um, there as in not they are, but they're.Mischa Z: 02:52 Oh my gosh. I can't tell you how many thoughts I have going through my mind right now. Um, I did not record. I was there from Tuesday. I jumped on a plane Tuesday, September 21st, 2021. And got home Sunday, the 26th, September, 2021 and did not record one episode. And, um, it's full on at that Funnel Hacking Live so full on, I mean, all day, every day. What there's 2,500 people there live. 2000 people, 3000 people, um, that, uh, zoomed in. It was sold out, which is pretty crazy given the environment. I am Vaxxed. This is not to say whether that's good, bad, whatever, alls I know I was inspired to go. I did. And, uh, pretty cool because, oh gosh, let's see. Why was it cool? One thing is that, you know, conference live conferences, at least in the moment in America, um, have an opportunity to come back and gosh, how powerful are they so powerful to be in that energy and that love in that community. Funnel hackers, where we are...I'm going to say, I am part of the family.Mischa Z: 04:27 I am all in. The Kool-Aid you see that big jug of Kool-Aid squarely on the table in front of you. I am drinking that Kool-Aid oh, yes, I am. I am being indoctrinated into the system and thank God. Um, where, where do I want to go with this? Um, where was I going with all this I'm indoctrinated into the, um, the community, the Funnel Hacking Live community. As a matter of fact, I sort of went backwards into it though. I started with the high end coaching program, the Two Comma Club X, which is like expensive entry into it. So glad I did it still, it will be re-upping of course, as I record this. Um, but it is a financial commitment and my heart pulled me to it. I signed up, this is back in actually September of last year, um, probably a year ago to the date as I record this, which is pretty awesome. Morning. Um, holy mackerel, you know, I just have a new vision of how I can of service to the world within this community. Um, there was one of the big moments was as I was flying there.Mischa Z: 06:13 I super cool, actually on the airplane, I wrote the email that went out to my email list. Hello, any of my beautiful email list listeners. I just thought it was so cool. I bought my iPad so I could do all this. I bought an iPad that iPad Air 4. I'll be sure to get that link up on the, um, on, uh, on, uh, my Amazon, uh, page or on my, uh, that link in the show notes. And again, please support me, right? Like part of this whole thing is, uh, is, uh, you know, we, we, uh. It's a labor of love for me. And, um, anything you can do to support that, um, I'm asking you, I, I, whatever, just... I'm and part of that as I go sideways again, is that I've really realizing how can I support other people and, and how can I click on their affiliate links and buy through their, through their channels?Mischa Z: 07:26 Cause at, for a time I would have a propensity to want to go direct, but people are putting their spirit into efforts and why would I feel the need to bypass them? I don't anymore. And I see it now, I got a friend who makes sunglasses and, um, I can get a discount from him. I'm sure. Actually not. I'm sure I have in the past, he makes incredible 3 D printed sunglasses. They're amazing. And they're made with, um, out of castor bean oil. So castor beans. Like they grow, it's a weed, at least in Encinitas, it's a weed and they grow. So you can make 3 D printed goods out of weed beans that are amazing and beautiful and functional. And you're not perhaps adding to the, um, the fossil fuel dilemma. Wow! I've got so many paths going. So I'm flying on the plane.Mischa Z: 08:46 I believe I know how I'm supposed to serve my audience. You know, I, I went through this major, uh, people in my life where I quit my career and, uh, you know, did this amazing work, um, a big chunk of it was with Kyle cease. Kyle Cease has what's called the Entrepreneurial Journey. No, it's the Complete Journey. He also has the Entrepreneurial Shift. I did them both, but the first big, big, big shift for me and some of my darkest moments of desperation when I was willing finally, to be open to some outside help was I dove into Kyle Cease's program, did his Complete, what's called the Complete Journey. I encourage anyone to go do it. That is not an affiliate link for me, but Google Kyle Cease's Complete Journey. Don't think buy, buy it. Anyhow, I did that. And, uh, it, it was a major transformation for me. It was a catalyst to me, healing relationships with my children. And I had this major, massive moment at the FHL 2021, where I just was where Tony Robbins was speaking. And he had us do this exercise, gratitude exercise. And I just realized how healed those relationships are with my two boys Cooper and Waylon who are 18 and 20. Love you boys. Um, like this, this, I was sobbing with gratitude.Mischa Z: 10:33 Two guys were there with me. I mean, there were thousands of people there. It was mayhem. And, um, and, uh, who was it? It was Rick, Rich Hayhurst. He's amazing. Google him and James Mays. James Mays owns a music school that a School Of Rock was based on, uh, James, sorry to call you out. Right. Cause well, but both amazing gentlemen, you should Google them and take advantage of their services. So Rick helps with, uh, internet marketing and, uh, he's got a company called Blitz Blitz B. Anyway, I just say that because I I'm just checking time. All right. I'm going to have a part to, uh, I'm just saying that because listen for part two and I will continue the story love to all, that's what we call an open loop. Okay. Peace out. Thank you.

The all-in-one loan is a unique product with some very interesting benefits that provide a higher level of efficiency for the homeowner/borrower in paying off their loans.  Justin Macagba and Dave Herbst of CMG Financial join us today to explain how it works, what its benefits are, and who it is a good fit for.  Visit CMG here: https://www.cmgfi.com  Contact Justin here: JMACAGBA@cmgfi.com  --- Transcript   Before we jump into the episode, here's a quick disclaimer about our content.

I'm Michael Albaum and today I'm joined by Dave and Justin with CMG Financial, and they're going to be talking to us about a really unique loan product that I had never heard of, but in very intrigued by called the all in one loan, so let's get into it.   All right, Dave, and Justin with CMG financial, thank you so much for taking the time to hang out with me today. I really appreciate it.   Dave: Thanks for having me.   Justin: No problem. Thank you.   Dave: Yeah. Thank you. Appreciate it.     Michael: My pleasure. And so you both are here to talk to us today about something called the all in one mortgage. Is that right?   Dave: Yeah, it's officially trademarked name is called the all-in-one loan. It's a unique mortgage product that we offer nationwide.   Michael: Is this a new product hasn't been around for a while?   Dave: Great question. No, it's not not a new product at all. We we launched this to the market in June of 2005. So over 16 years old now. It is however, sort of a newer concept to you know, most Americans. So it's still you know, day to day kind of feels new, as we talk about it, but it's certainly not a new product for us. And it's often.   Michael: Okay. And so that's twice you've mentioned that it's been launched in the US, was this product modeled after a product in a different country?   Dave: Yeah, absolutely. This type of financing in the way it's engineered, is very similar to mortgage products that are mainstream in other countries, other parts of the world. You know, throughout Western Europe, the UK, specifically, these types of mortgages are called offset loans or offset mortgages. They're also a version of this is also available in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, India, you know, most of the world's largest banks offer some version of this product, but we've been so you know, kind of slow to adopt or embrace innovation in the mortgage industry.   If you think about it, you know, the standard mortgage, 30 year fixed mortgage, or 15 year fixed mortgage, these are products that were developed during the Great Depression era. And they're still the gold standard today. You know, despite all the change and innovation and all the changes in needs, for the for the average American household, we have yet to really kind of push forth innovation in the mortgage industry. This represents certainly, you know, positive change directionally.   Michael: Interesting. And so I had never heard of this product at all until Justin and I were chatting about it in the Roofstock Academy. So Dave, we would love if you could share with everybody, what is it and kind of how does it work? What are the mechanics of it?   Dave: Sure, yeah. Well, the all in one loan, you know, given its brand name, it's a it's two things that are bundled together to two accounts, two financial instruments that are combined together to provide a higher level of efficiency for the homeowner for the borrower. And I mean, that they are able to save money save time, and their money goes further for them.   So let me explain how it's engineered. The mortgage part one of the all in one is the mortgage side and mortgage is powered by a 30 year draw. So first lien position, 30 year draw, home equity line of credit, it's the only one in America that I'm still aware of, there is no other HELOC or mortgage product like it, this allows homeowners to actually finance the purchase of real estate or maybe refinance out of their current mortgage. And it can be used for primary residence second home or investment property, but it also provides them access to their home equity dollars for 30 years without ever having to refinance once in place. But that's not where it stops.   The the other part of the all in one loan is that it comes with a linked checking account that's uniquely engineered, the checking account that's linked with the line of credit is also known as a zero balance or sweep checking account. What that means is anytime you make a deposit, your money automatically sweeps to the mortgage to the line of credit, and it pays down your principal balance that day. So in other words, can you imagine combining your borrowing and your banking needs all in one place, so that your regular everyday cash flow, your money, your idle cash, is always going to pay down your principal balance and that that's a benefit because interest costs are based on your principal balance.   So if you can use the money you have in your possession, right, this moment that you haven't spent yet today, right? Think about your income checks over time, you don't spend all your money all at once. So as your money kind of sits idle, waiting to be spent on groceries tomorrow, maybe a car payment in two weeks. Your Cash is constantly always leveraged against your principal balance which helps you avoid mortgage interest cost over time.   Michael: Interesting. So, so let me just make sure I understand. So if I had an extra I went, I go to the 711 and I find a $20 bill sitting on the ground I can put that into this sweep checking account, and then actually pay down the balance of my mortgage.   Dave: Yeah, I mean, there's a couple things that we know about about average Americans, especially those that are in the market to buy or already own a home. Number one, you need financing. Most Americans need to borrow money in order to actually own real estate. Right. So number two, is that most of us utilize a checking account to manage our income our resources with right pay our bills from the problem with the traditional way we've been doing things forever is that our cash or idle money, the $20, you pick up and find on the street or the $20 You earned from your employer, that that tends to sit around in your checking account securely available for you, but it's not earning you anything, it's not earning you any measurable amount of interest. It's just sitting there waiting money spent on things that you need in the future.   On the on the other side of that coin, you have a mortgage and your mortgage, statistically, is your biggest expense in life costing you high amounts of interest, despite the low interest rate mortgages come with today. Right? So the interest rates with mortgages isn't the problem. The problem is how your money is applied to the mortgage itself, the principal balance. So by combining the two together the checking account and the mortgage together, your cash that $20 you just picked up and found outside 711 will pay down your balance today, just by way of making a deposit into the checking account, your principal balance in your mortgage drops by $20. It'll do that if you deposit a dime, it'll depart it'll do that if you deposit $10,000, your balance drops the day you make that deposit, it re computes interest automatically on that lower balance. All the meanwhile your cash is kept liquid for you to spend the very next day or the next moment.   Michael: So then if I needed that $20 back, because I changed my mind the next day. And actually I want a $20 thing. I can take it out of my mortgage or the line of credit, and then use it and spend a spendable cash.   Dave: Yeah, that's exactly right. So the checking account is fully transactional, full feature. So it comes with ATM debit Visa cards, online banking, on bill payment, mobile banking and bill pay, you could take a picture of a personal check with the with the app, the mobile app, and that gets deposited into the checking account automatically transfers to the HELOC paying down your balance that day. So it's full feature you can check right from it, Link external accounts to it transfer money back and forth from other accounts. When I say it's fully transactional, I mean that the way you're engaging your money is unchanged, you're still using a checking account. This one's just uniquely designed to make your money go further while you're not using it.   Michael: Holy crap. This is awesome. I've got a HELOC on a on a property. It's my primary residence. It's got a 10 year draw period. But one of the ways this is different is out at the beginning you said a 30 year draw period. So that's one distinction to draw from an ordinary HELOC versus this product by product on my primary residence is 30 year fixed. And I know you said this is a 30 year draw. So is this product have a fixed interest rate as well? Or does it is it variable like a traditional HELOC?   Dave: It's a variable rate. And we do offer an interim fixed term option we have a three year fixed and a five year fixed and then it goes fully adjustable meaning a monthly adjustable, so the interest rate is tied to the one year CMT, which stands for constant maturity Treasury rate, aka the one year Treasury rate. So that's the baseline or the index that we use in the interest rate structure. On top of that, the customer chooses a margin and that gets locked in it remains unchanged. But if the index moves which it can on a monthly basis, the rate the interest rate that the borrower pays it's being calculated on your daily balance can can adjust only once a month on the first we updated on the first now the index that we use is near 0%. It aligns with our federal funds rate which is targeted at zero to 25 basis points and it's currently at about eight basis points.   And so when the Fed says that they are going to you know maintain a pattern of low interest rates and not necessarily push short term rates up that's an indication that our the interest rate and our loan will not change either will remain very low. Historically speaking the index has been about 2.2% historically looking back 25 years so very low index to use for a an adjustable rate mortgage and that's why we chose it the index isn't really selected for HELOCs you know HELOCs are generally prime based. And the problem with your 30 year fixed mortgage isn't the interest rate again, it's it's the way that your money is being applied to the to the balance as you know most of your payment for the first half of the term doesn't go towards paying down your principal primarily most of that is going towards interest.   In fact, on a 30 year loan you pay 50% of the total interest that's already predetermined in the first 10 years alone so it's not a it's not a high yield for efficiency of your money. You've worked hard for your money. Why can't all your money as you pay down debt, why can't it go towards principal entirely and then the lender read Cast the interest that you that you're going to owe them. That's this loan. It's the only loan in America that pays principal first for the entire term of the loan. So also the only loan in America, like you said, that gives you access to your equity money and the cash that you put into it for 30 years, without having to refinance. It's also the only loan in America that re computes interest, nightly. Based on your new balance, however, you want to control it over the whole entire 30 year term. So a lot of only statements there, man, but we're pretty proud of it.   Michael: That's awesome. That's awesome. So is there a minimum? I know, you said that that's the one year Treasury is kind of the benchmark and then the lender or the borrower rather picks a margin. So is there a floor and a ceiling to where the variability or where the interest rate could go?   Dave: There is? Yeah, great question. Yeah, the floor rate is generally set at 3.75% for primary residences, and second homes, investment properties is slightly higher than that. And then the ceiling is set at 6% over the initial rate. So on a primary residence or second home, that'd be 9.75%. Roughly, today, for a line of credit that's exceptionally low, as you guys know, write lines of credit typically have ceilings that are up in the high teens, if not low, 20% or 20%. range. So very low.   Now, if for that, for the rate to reach that ceiling level, you know, the Fed would have to increase rates by roughly 600 basis points, right? Not likely that 6%, not likely. And so that ceilings low enough to where protects the customer, it's high enough to where it doesn't really cause concern, during any kind of rising rate environment to to us or to our bank partners to support the loan, there's kind of a sweet spot that you want to achieve with with applying a ceiling, a lifetime cap, you don't want it too high, you don't want it too low. And we know that we found that sweet spot with this loan.   Michael: That's awesome. And so from a qualification perspective, for borrowers and for the property itself, are you looking at the same type of stuff that a traditional or maybe not just about a 30 year fixed product, but go on, you're getting an appraisal, you're looking at borrower financials and all that sort of thing?   Dave: Yeah, yeah, exactly right. It we follow Fannie Mae, it's, you know, obviously, it's a proprietary loan that we pioneered, and it's a privately secured mortgage products, we don't sell it off to Fannie, Freddie, you know, any other loan aggregator, you know, or Wall Street, we, you know, it's secured on the balance sheet with our bank partners that support it, and, but the qualifying for it, and the process follows, you know, agency standards and industry standards and industry norms, of course. So the process is very similar to refinancing or, you know, purchasing a property using a 30 year fix, you'll get an appraisal, full title policy is included, you know, is involved, and, you know, all the all the standard, you know, third party closing costs, you know, are involved the same as if you were to get any other standard mortgage.   Michael: Okay, and who is a good candidate for this product? And who may be? Is it a good fit for this type of product?   Dave: Sure. Well, that's a great question. So this is a, this is a loan product, that that the benefits are driven by your ability to not spend more than you make. I mean, frankly, you couldn't get very far in life, if that's how you live permanently, right? I know that there's kind of peaks and valleys in our spending behavior. You know, holidays are more expensive than than maybe non holiday months, right? Or summertime could be more expensive. I mean, I know that there's an ebb and flow to expenditures and things like that for the average US household.   But overall, really on an annualized basis, if you live within your means you tend to be cashflow positive, you're not spending more than you make routinely, you already make a great candidate for this product. So are you You don't have to be you have to be a really great saver to to benefit you just have to have some residual cash leftover at the end of the each month right and so that begins to build and compound your savings. And that that's an advantage because it's condensing the amount of time you're in debt which is save you 10s of 1000s dollars in mortgage interest along the way while you remain liquid.   So there's that that type of household that's cashflow positive, they can be fairly disciplined they're not suddenly because they've got this heaping line of credit available. They're not going to go out and and change their their budget or behavior, per se, but the people that are thoughtful right and established with their finances make great candidates for the for the product. Also those people with some established established equity in their property.   Our minimum downpayment for purchase is 10% when we're supplying this for primary residents 20% for a second home 25% equity or downpayment is required for an investment property. So you know, this isn't the zero down payment loan right this is 100% loan to value financing loan This is the generally the 80% loan to value alone is most common. Our average loan to value is 75%. Our average credit score ranges around 770 Our minimum is only 700. So you know you need that high of a credit score to to qualify but our average range is close to 800 or so. average debt to income ratio is under 30%. And, you know, so this, this tends to really attract those people with, you know, established credit established financial behavior.   Michael: Yeah, that makes total sense. That makes total sense. And so, Justin, I want to bring you in for a minute, because I know that you are a member of the rootstock Academy, and you actually have one of these products on your primary. Is that right?   Justin: That is correct. Yep.   Michael: So I mean, you're really drinking the Kool Aid. I love it.   Justin: Oh, it's, it's, it's a game changing mortgage. You know, a lot of times when I try to explain what the loan is and how it works, you know, it's, it's met with a lot of more questions than pushback. And you know, I do find a lot of people asking a ton of questions pertaining to the program, but particularly those that are investors, you know, obviously the big appeal for this particular program is the access to the equity as you and I both know, anytime that we want to get access to that equity, we have to do a cash out refinance on the primary I have access to that equity whenever I need it.   So like I said, I'm a I learned a lot from the Roofstock Academy quite frankly, it gave me that additional confidence to start investing out of state so I have properties in the Birmingham Alabama area. Anytime I want to access that equity, I fill out a form sign it scan it into into the bank and I get a wire confirmation afterwards that the funds have been sent to the title company that's handling the closing it's awesome. It's it's really seamless, it's a really seamless program a lot of people are are hesitant about it, but I you know, knowing that there are other parts of the world that have really adopted this particular program, it's a fantastic program.   Michael: And so you're using the equity in your primary via the this all in one loan product to take cash out to then purchase as your down payment are you purchasing all cash?   Justin: So I'm using I'm still leveraging them into a 30 year fixed rate mortgage so I'm just taking the down payment. And then so I have it's actually a really seamless process I've got set up because what I did is so I take the 20% Plus closing costs and prepaids and I've used that for the down payment on I just closed out one last week down in the Grayson Valley area and closed, everything's all set. So what I actually do now is David mentioned by you have this checking account this offset account so all my mortgage payments come off of my line but all of my rent deposits get deposited onto my line. So it's it's just it takes the bookkeeping piece out of it the second Tuesday of every month is my property management issues the issues rent checks that's my favorite time of month because I just wake up and my lines automatically pay down but as far as like having to cut checks and in cut it you know sending payments in or whatnot it all flows seamlessly it's it's really nice   Michael: That's incredible so you really have a a one track funnel for your property your rental property Alabama actually paying down your primary residence mortgage right   Justin: It's pretty great Yeah, that's exactly what's happening.   Dave: You know, you think about it this way you're as Justin said his his mortgages on his rental properties aren't that are conventional mortgages aren't do aren't technically due until the 15th right before you're deemed a late payment or not a late payment but a maybe a late late penalty you know so you have you have this float you know for you know up to up to 15 days 14-15 days every single month to leverage the inbound money that you receive off your rental property into back into your all in one loan line of credit which serves to pay down your principal balance your daily principle in which interest is being computed on so by me by way of making a deposit think of this as like a checking account that's earning you in the form of savings right earning you the yield on it is equal to the interest rate of the loan. So it's like a high powered checking account that's yielding you back 3.75% on your deposits, right and that comes in the form of avoiding interest cost and that accelerates your pay down.   And so Justin's able to recycle that right he's he's able to farm savings just by using it and then take those savings right that build really rapidly and go buy another investment property so just it's just like this you know flexible credit facility that's available to you for a variety of different reasons pay down is one of them it's the byproduct of applying money to principle first and saving money on interest however you're liquid so you can constantly kind of read you know farm those savings and go leverage again and build your your real estate portfolio and in for your wealth opportunities.   Michael: This is amazing. This is a really really cool unique product that just I know we had chatted about it a while ago and it's still taking me time to wrap my head around it.   Justin: It takes a little bit to it because it's just different right we're constantly I mean he turned on the news and you hear about rates every I feel like mortgage rates at one point and turned into like water cooler talk right? Well, what's your rate? It's all about trying to get the lowest rate possible. You've really got to just take the concept of a mortgage and just drop it on the floor and let it shatter, to really understand that, you know, it's not so much the rate, it's the mechanics of the loan, I, you know, I'm a commissioned only sales rep, I do mortgages for a living. So you know, some months are great, some months are not so great, what a great month, I could take all of that money and apply it towards my principal balance and have the peace of mind of knowing that I have the ability to go in and tap into that equity whenever I need it.   It really, it's, it's, it's comforting, where others may be like, no, no, no, it's comforting to me to know that that that equity is available to me whether it's with a check, we have an all in one credit card. Yeah, you you have availability to whenever you need it.   Michael: That's so cool. So how does change in value work for the property both on the upside, and if the market takes a bit of a dive on the downside?   Dave: Nothing stopping a customer, there's no automatic modification of the credit limit. And that's it's probably a good good opportunity for me to kind of to address how the line of credit is structured, it's very unique as well, the credit limit that we established and underwriting remains unchanged for the first 10 years at that initial amount. After the after the 10th year, the credit line limit reduces slowly each month over 20 years till it reaches zero.   So this is how we keep people liquid over 30 years for use of the line of credit, we don't force a balloon payment. We never restructure how you pay for the loan into an amortized payment like with a traditional HELOC. That does that after 10 years. So it's it's a, it's engineered very uniquely, to be able to keep people liquid. But there's no automatic modification in case your property value goes up, you'd have to refinance into a higher into a higher line of credit, which is no problem.   There's no prepayment penalty on this, nothing stopping you or prohibiting you from doing that. There's no amortization schedule that starts over again, right, you just continue on with your principal balance where you left off, you just get a higher line of credit. But you have to go through the process, the refi process, on the flip side of property values come down, there's no there's no triggers an automatic trigger that reduces your line of credit either. What we're concerned with would be fraudulent activity, mismanagement, financial distress, where you really, you know, a risk of default, where where we might address things and look at the line of credit and available, you know, access to money. If in case property values come down, and there's financial distress, a combination of things might lead us to that point, we've never frozen a single line of credit, especially due to property value, we only had two forbearances last year on the product as a result of COVID. Only 2, now consider that we're talking 10s of 1000s of borrowers. And you know, consider what a 30 year fix people people tend to look at a regular 30 year fixed mortgages, low risk.   And to Justin's point, we're kind of programmed to just think that way, you know, nobody really kind of talks about the elephant in the room. You know, delinquency rate ratings, and historically for a standard mortgage are not low, they're actually relatively high, somewhere between about four to 10%. And, you know, if that if you lose your job, or you you're in financial distress, you have income reduction, maybe as a result of COVID, that payment is still do, you still have a payment to make. And if you don't make that you're 90 days away from from potentially defaulting, or even foreclosing on your home.   On this, it's a line of credit. The interest that that calculates daily is totaled up after the month is ended, and then drafted from the line of credit automatically on the 21st of each new month for you. So it's really, really hard to go late on our product. That's why we have no delinquencies and no lates No, no defaults since inception, which is just extraordinary.   Michael: Wow. That's incredible.   Justin: You know, I had a customer of mine, who we had closed on his line prior to COVID. And him and his wife had owned a fitness gym. Well, COVID came around, everything shut down. So there goes as income. Not only that, but he was also diagnosed with cancer. So there's just all this whirlwind of information, a whirlwind of just bad happening to this particular customer. However, no one was knocking on his door three months after, you know, the inability to generate that income because to Dave's point, the balance just increases. There's no There's no delinquencies, there's no late payments, it increases his mortgage balance, but he gets to stay in the home that he's living in. So there you mean you talk about security, that's, that's ultimate to me.   Dave: And that's because they've been approved for the line of credit limit, right. It's not like the old neg ATM, you know, mortgages where you're not even paying the monthly interest that's new, it's just being tacked on to the balance ongoingly kind of almost, you know, people really became too comfortable with that type of product. This isn't that you've established a line of credit based on your qualifying aspects and going through the transaction. So if you need to fall back on your available equity money that's available made available through the line of credit, it's there for you job loss. That's okay. You know, you've got a while till to get back on your feet without having to risk your home.   Michael: This is so cool, guys, this is so cool. Where can people find out more about the product? Where can people reach out to you both directly?   Dave: One of the best resources out there is the product website that's just publicly available. And it's all in one loan. com it's a great place to go to and learn more about it. And then of course, Justin, if you want to provide your information, I think that's the most direct way to learn from one of our experts.   Justin: Yeah, absolutely. I'd be happy to answer any questions. You know, like I said, this combination of the Roofstock Academy and being able to leverage the equity as, as often as I'm able to to be able to build out my real estate portfolio has really been a game changer. For me, I don't think it's something I would have even considered Had this not been the setup that I'm currently in. So first and foremost, Michael, I want to thank you and the guys over at Roofstock for providing me with that confidence. But…   Michael: My pleasure,   Justin: if anyone wants to reach out to me to learn more about the about the program and some of the benefits, I'm happy to answer any questions out, I'm sure we can get my information out there somehow.   Michael: Perfect. You can if you want, you can share it right here. And then we can put a link to it in the show notes as well.   Justin: Sure. So I can reach out to me at my office number, that number is 603-323-0755. And then my email address, oh, it's JMACAGBA, JMACAGBA@cmgfi.com. I need to spell out the last name because it's very, very unique as you can imagine.   Dave: Yeah, you said that a few times on Justin?   Justin: Yeah.   Michael: For anybody in the academy, you can I'm sure find Justin in the Slack channels as well and reach out to him. Well, guys, thank you again, so much for taking time any final thoughts or things that folks should be aware of or know, as they're learning more about the all in one loan,   Dave: I would just compel people to you know, consider why this makes such practical sense. Checking account space, zero interest, but they see the most money you'll ever flow or have in your possession any one time over over your entire adult life, right your working life, a high volume of money that passes through a checking account, your mortgage ends up mortgages end up being your constantly sick expense over time as well. linked together now we're talking about something unique and special that really works in your favor, as opposed to working exclusively in the favor of the banks. So this is not to demonize the banking industry. We all rely on them. But you know, it's I think it's refreshing to talk about a product that's really driven and it's it's, it's really puts the consumer before the before the institution itself.   Michael: Right. Great. Dave, Justin, thank you both. Again, really a pleasure to have you on and I'm sure we'll be chatting soon. Yeah,   Dave: Thank you Michael. Appreciate it.   Justin: Thank you.   Michael: Okay, that was our episode a big big big thank you to Justin and Dave for coming on. That was a lot of fun. If you're watching this on video, you probably saw my wheels start turning as we were talking about this loan product really a unique thing. And so if you're interested definitely recommend reaching out to those guys at their website or directly to one of them. As always, if you liked the episode, feel free to leave us a rating or review wherever it is listen to your podcasts. We look forward to seeing the next one and as always, Happy investing

Ep.123: The Patient Coordinator Role

Beauty and the Biz

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 21, 2021 7:07


Welcome to "Beauty and the Biz", where we talk about the business and marketing side of plastic surgery. I'm your host, Catherine Maley, author of "Your aesthetic practice - What your patients are saying", and consultant to plastic surgeons to get them more patients and profits. ​   The Patient Coordinator Role You may not realize how insanely difficult it is to get a complete stranger to buy your cosmetic services. First, they need to become aware of you. Then research you enough to feel compelled to contact you, then meet you and then say yes to you and hand over their credit card. A lot happens between each of those stages, but especially at the converting stage when your would-be patient is at the pivotal moment of saying yes or…. ”I have to think about it and call you back.”  A professionally trained coordinator would NOT set herself up for failure by letting this happen in the first place. She would use proven strategies to not only avoid this from happening, but to methodically prepare the prospective patient to say yes instead. But here's what I see in many practices…. Too many coordinators have been placed in the role with no sales training. Sure, they are nice people, may look the part and be educated on your procedures and processes. However, they don't have the mindset, sales methods or structure to convert more often. And just because your coordinator has been on the job for years doesn't mean she's a professional living up to her potential. Without professional training, she's actually working with one arm behind her back and not able to give you the best results you both want. For example, see if your patient coordinator has these attributes:   Coordinator's Mindset and Attitude A patient coordinator must love serving the public. She must be curious about others and helping them get what they want. She is open and friendly with a ready smile, great eye contact and has a confidant air about her that puts strangers at ease quickly. She doesn't see her role as “selling” but rather as “serving” the public to help them make a good decision. Her money mindset is also solid. She appreciates your skill and expertise and calmly explains why you charge what you charge without apologizing for it.   A Coordinator Builds Rapport A professionally trained coordinator listens and learns. She acts as the patient's aesthetic advisor to help them through their journey, so they are comfortable every step of the way. She builds rapport by asking strategic questions to help her bond with the patient. These questions also help her get to know the prospective patient's pre-conceived beliefs, expectations, and hot buttons to better gauge where the patient is coming from emotionally, physically, as well as financially.   A Coordinator Promotes the Surgeon as the BEST Choice  The right coordinator knows how to strategically build you up BEFORE the patient consultation, so the patient is 70% more likely to say yes during their visit. The right coordinator “drinks the Kool-Aid”. She loves the plastic surgery industry. She's fascinated with the transformations that happen with your patients and wants that for new prospective patients who visit you. She partakes in the services herself and has no qualms about people spending money to enhance their appearance and confidence. She is your biggest fan and knows how to brag about you using presentation tools, so the would-be patient also sees you as the best choice.   A Coordinator Knows How to Present The trained coordinator knows how to use verbal cheerleading to present the quote, so the patient understands all that goes into it and is excited to proceed. She confidently articulates the process, so the patient is comfortable with the steps that follow and reiterates the benefits of choosing you and your practice. The coordinator checks in with the patient throughout her presentation to be sure the patient is following along and still engaged.   A Coordinator Knows How to Convert The professionally trained coordinator knows there is a pivotal point when she stops presenting and asks for the decision in a smooth way that makes it comfortable for the patient to say yes. And, if the patient does have questions or objections, the coordinator calmly addresses them and asks for the decision again using a different angle. So, how did your patient coordinator stack up? Does it sound like you have a professionally trained coordinator representing you to the best of her ability? The point of all this is to remind you that there are nuances to everything. For example, there are nuances to surgical techniques that make all the difference in your outcomes and the same goes for converting consultations. Without knowing these small nuances in the process of converting consultations to paid procedures could be holding her back from greater results. If you believe your coordinator could benefit from professional training, please check out The Converting Club for Coordinators at my website catherinemaley.com where I professionally train coordinators to convert more consultations professionally and confidently.

In this episode, we're scratching The Itch to choose violence! After their 2018 album _Thread_ won our hearts (and the #4 spot on that year's Top Albums list), Red Sun Rising announced a potentially permanent hiatus in early 2020. A few months later, an anonymous band called The Violent arrived on the scene with the powerful single "Fly On The Wall". Soon after, it was revealed that the three-piece band was comprised of former members of Red Sun Rising. This week, frontman Mike Protich joins us to talk about his bands new and old, including the creative transition, their first "live rituals", and how the band (figuratively) has people drinking the Kool-Aid of their sound. And hey, when you're done watching their SiriusXM performance we mentioned repeatedly, follow our New Rock Roundup playlist and then connect with us! itchrocks.com Twitter.com/itchrocks Facebook.com/itchrocks Instagram.com/itchrocks itchrocks@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening.

Live from the no panic zone—I'm Steve Gruber—I am America's Voice— I am Fierce and Fearless— I am here to tell the truth—I mean lets be honest—somebody has to—And—I'm the guy—   Here are three big Things you need to know right now—   ONE— The bizarre mass shooting in Norway that left 5 dead—with the killer using a bow and arrow—I wonder how long until the left will want those too—   TWO— Big disappointment for the Kool-Aid drinkers and true believers—who were hoping the commission on The Supreme Court would give tacit approval of packing the court—but it didn't happen—   THREE— Santa Clause may not be coming this year—and with just over 70 days until Christmas—it seems the Biden Administration was stuck in its own bottleneck and unable to do much to help the supply chain— It is all about the economy stupid—just like James Carville always said—and right now—its looking like a growing liability for every Democrat in America—because this is their guy—this is their socialist agenda being played out—with zero leadership—and no likelihood that is going to change—because Joe Biden is simply not up for the job—   The sooner more Democrats and independents realize that—the better off we are going to be—   In the meantime—ordinary Americans are going to pay the price—at the pump—at the grocery store—on monthly bills—and if you think this is temporary—you are mistaken—
