Live from the No Panic Zone—I'm Steve Gruber—I am America's Voice—God Bless America—God Bless You and let's do this! This is the Steve Gruber show— the Ultra MAGA express train to truth! Get on lets roll! Here are three big things you need to know right now— ONE— Russia is losing in Ukraine—and they are also running out of soldiers and missiles—depending on who you trust on the matter— TWO— News today—of yet another Democrat Senator suffering a stroke—that will leave him out of action for at least a week or two—what is going on with so many Dems stroking out? THREE— The babies of the nation are screaming again today—because the lack of baby formula nationwide is hitting home OR maybe it's because Joe Biden is President which would make most grown men cry—Just not me—it makes me angry— and it makes me steadfast and I want you to embrace the same resolve I have today —because my friends we are not going to take back this country sitting on the damn couch! We must stand up—we must be proud and we must be heard! Are you with me? It is time to stand up and be heard my friends—it is time to tell Joe Biden—Bernie Sanders—Nancy Pelosi—Barack Obama—AOC—The squad— and the rest of the Socialists clamoring to put the globalists in charge of the United States—we are not buying it— not one bit— The laundry list of failures grows by the day—the failing economy—and the soaring inflation—driving average gas prices above $6 a gallon in California—and above $5 dollars a gallon in several more states— We are truly at a watershed moment my friends and the question you have to ask—is are you going to sit there and run your mouth—and tap out mean messages on social media—or are you going to get into the arena—just like the 26th President of the United States—Teddy Roosevelt talked about— Are you willing to roll up your sleeves—get dirty—get knocked down and get back up? Because I can guarantee you this—I have been watching the left my entire life—and they never quit—no matter how badly they get crushed in elections like 1994 or 2010—they re-group and they start leaching back into the national conversation again— Like your favorite leftist whack job and mine—Neil Young told us—Rust Never Sleeps—and neither do socialists—they will be putting together new rent-a-riots for this coming weekend—to declare America a horrible—racist and unfair place—while at the same time rationalizing the dismemberment of full term babies as somehow protected under the Constitution— they will do that for political power—because they have no shame— It is time my friends to reject the failure of this President and his administration to make sure there is enough formula to feed our nation's children— and enough strength to take this nation back— It's time— We must reject gas prices at all time record highs while the socialists are crushing the American energy sector –that should be setting the standard for the rest of the world— Reject censorship—human trafficking—a dishonest national media—an unchecked invasion at the southern border— Its time to say we will not allow you to teach our kids to hate each other amy more—we will say no to defunding the police and weak willed George Soros prosecutors—who release violent criminals and step aside as violent crime explodes and blood runs in our streets like never before— We will not blindly follow you to war in Ukraine, Somalia or anywhere else—we reject the Ministry of Truth and the idea that the government can do anything better than the rest of us—except to build machines to kill—on a mass scale— We flatly reject government surveillance of our phones, our computers, our cars, our bank accounts and our lives—back off—because we have had enough— We will not sit here quietly while you destroy the American farm and the American family— we will not be intimidated by your thug tactics or your bogus slogans—or your big lies— We demand voter ID—poll watchers—and accountability at every level—we will fight back against your insanity—and we will have election integrity— And we will defend The United States of America—at every turn—no matter what it takes—we will defend the right to free speech—the right to bear arms—the right to be free of government intervention in our lives—and we will treat the Constitution of this nation as it should be treated —as the greatest document for human freedom and liberty in the history of the world—because it is—and we all know that! We will not stand here and let you divide us anymore—and we will reject those that try— We are many things—we are black and we are white—we are men and women—short and tall—some are thin and some are not—we come from backroads and back alleys—and we are in this together— Because my friends—we are Americans—and that means something to me—in fact beyond God and my amazing family—it means everything— So, I say to you again—are you with me? Do not allow yourself to get down—I need you now more than ever—I need you to save this nation with me—together we can do this—we can rise above and we can reject the socialists in favor of that shining city on a hill—because that is today—more than ever what America still is—and always will be—BUT we must defend her from those that would tear her down— Are you with me? Ask yourself— are you with me?

Your life shall unfold. You are, as it were, but at the beginning of that which never began. The page lies fresh and white before you even as does the new day. Old things shall rule you no more. Old ways shall tempt you no more. You shall go on and up the sunlit lit path with Me. If at times you seem to be back again and the old familiar ways seem to take possession of you, only turn within and know that the One who dwells on the throne of your heart is after all that which is eternal. As you do your work, as you meet My children on the path, you will be love-filled and understanding, for it shall be the Christ in you who sees and works.

Suffering with PTSD from fighting in the War in Iraq, former marine Manny Marrero, OTR/L shares his story of recovery. Everyone has expereinced some form of trauma. And we may need help to adapt once we're in a safe and better place. This is the 2nd part of his interview. Manny received his master's degree in occupational therapy from Bay Path University in Massachusetts. He's currently an MBA candidate at Boston university's Questrom school of business. He has a mental health occupational therapist at Cape Cod Healthcare and a yoga instructor. ➤RESOURCES Manny Marrero: https://www.instagram.com/manny_marrero Free Worksheet: https://www.YourTruthRevealed.com/listen ➤SUMMARY 1. What is your role and how do you help people? · Mental Health Occupational Therapist. Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Trauma Informed Care, Sensory Modulation, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, work for NAMI. · Vulnerability is a sign of strength and not of weakness. Lack of insight and awareness as to what is out there. Especially men, it's time to say that you need help. It's okay to be vulnerable say that you're struggling. It was me at one point. 2. What is your personal journey with PTSD? · Marine Corps 2001 - 2009. 4 years active duty. My first day of boot camp was just before 9/11. At 18 years old I was in the war zone at the Iraq-Kuwait border. I was in the front lines for 7 months in intense combat. · I returned to California and didn't have time to process. Went back into training. In 2007, I was deployed to Falluja in Iraq for 8 months. I lost my friend, which hit me hard. After I left the marines, I wasn't sleeping well and had anxiety all the time. · I didn't know about PTSD and there was more stigma then. The marines weren't concerned about mental health. · At 22 years old, I was on active duty and drifting as a civilian. Self-medicating with alcohol, in toxic relationships, reckless and impulsive. I struggled from 2005 - 2009. Was dating my now wife who was studying psychology. She said I had PTSD yet I was in denial. I later told the VA that I needed help. · I was in therapy for a year and stopped drinking. I gained insight and self-awareness. I had been blaming yourself and felt broken in some way, thinking I'd never get better. I did the inner work and researched. Medications helped for a small period of time. Then I did yoga, exercise, medication, and mindfulness. I went to a veteran silent retreat. This helped me cope and be more mindful, kind, and gentle to myself and then to others. People started to notice a difference. · I finished college, whereas before I failed out. I graduated top of my class. I went to graduate school for OT and graduated top of my class. Now I'm getting my MBA. How do you define PTSD? · PTSD is a natural response to unnatural events. · Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. · Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. · If the symptoms get worse, last for months or even years, and interfere with your day-to-day functioning, you may have PTSD. · Most people who go through traumatic events may have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping, but with time and good self-care, they usually get better. · Getting effective treatment after PTSD symptoms develop can be critical to reduce symptoms and improve function. What would you like men and specifically veterans to know? · We all suffer, it's the human condition. Many suffer in silence. But there are solutions to problems we face, there are resources and programs. Like occupational therapy, NAMI, counseling, medications, and yoga. · Mindfulness - once you have awareness of thinking and behaviors, use awareness to make changes. Respond verses react. People are surprised that they have inner resources and can access it.
Is tokenization the future of real estate investing? Vernon J., the founder and CEO of EquityCoin, discusses the potential of blockchain technology in the real estate industry. He emphasizes the importance of community, explaining that a token is similar to stock and that before launching a token, it is important to have credibility and a track record of success. He goes on to say that this is the next frontier in blockchain technology, and regular companies will be able to tokenize their assets and share the profits with their shareholders. He also mentions that tokenization provides the infrastructure for quick transactions, just like with stocks on the stock market. [00:01 - 04:42] Behind EquityCoin Combating two issues in the commercial real estate market Lack of funding available to underserved communities High cost of traditional financing Removing the bureaucracy and the middlemen [04:43 - 14:06] Blockchain Technology and Tokenization of Assets Blockchain begins and ends with community Creating empowerment ecosystems Building trust and having a good track record Security tokens are actually backed by a company and by assets and are bound by SEC rules and regulations Soon, every company is going to have a tokenized component of their business Build things in a place of credibility and not hype [14:07 - 17:04] The Tokenization Movement Vernon on what they are working on right now Being a missing link between the developer and the community Empowering and helping developers and leaders to tokenize through EquityShare [17:05 - 18:51] Closing Segment Think about blockchain technology as the internet of accounting Reach out to Vernon!

Oh, you're talking about that Bitcoin thing right? But that's the wrong way to think about it. You know, when you think about blockchain technology, it's the basis of cryptocurrency. It's the basis of security token is the basis of NFTs. It is the underlying technology behind it. Intro 00:25 Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson 00:37 Vernon J. is the founder and CEO of EquityCoin, the first digital token backed by affordable housing. Since 2006, Vernon has facilitated over $160 million in commercial real estate transactions. And I actually think that number is probably closer to 200. At this point, Vernon, welcome to the show. Vernon J. 00:54 Sam, thank you so much for having me. I'm excited. I'm thrilled to be here to talk about, you know, not only EquityCoin, but also giving general pointers in general gems about how to scale commercial real estate, which is near and dear to my heart so... Sam Wilson 01:08 I love it. Man, I love it 90 seconds or less? Where do you start? Where are you now how'd you get there, Vernon J. 01:12 Started in Brooklyn, went to Massachusetts for high school and college. Then I came to LA, now I'm in LA area, had my grassroots, had my teeth in New York, you know, like they say, you know, you start in New York, you can go anywhere. And I truly believe that. And now I'm on the West Coast, you know, doing the same thing, just trying to create more opportunities. Sam Wilson 01:32 You've spent a lot of time in commercial real estate scaling commercial real estate, but you've kind of taken a left turn, or shall we say, a spin on what you saw in the market? What need did you see in the marketplace? And then how are you solving it? Vernon J. 01:46 So you know, Sam, I've been blessed man. And I've been blessed to work with family offices throughout my career, you know, wealthy individuals, you know, developers, and what I've noticed, I've actually noticed two things. Throughout my journey. And throughout my career, I've noticed that there's a handful of families and people and individuals and companies that own the lion's share, the most of the real estate in these large cities. Second thing that I've noticed is that when I get financing for my clients, they're doing workforce housing, maybe it's 200 units, or, you know, they're doing a new development, it's actually exponentially easier to get funding for those types of projects than it is to go to a community that may be in blight, or maybe underserved, that really needs the funding. It's exponentially harder to get financing for projects in those neighborhoods and in those communities. So I created EquityCoin, as a way to combat both of those scenarios. So that one, I can create, use the blockchain as a mechanism to allow thousands of people within the communities that we own properties to own the assets, but not only that, be able to, you know, combat or kind of replace the bank in the sense where they're not really providing funding in those communities. So I'm saying you know what, I can come in, I can create this infrastructure, where the community can come together and replace the bank, and actually be another component of the capital stack if we can't completely replace the bank. So that's EquityCoin. In a nutshell, we started in the East New York section of Brooklyn with portfolio of assets over there. And we're expanding to North Miami and South Los Angeles. Sam Wilson 03:25 So if you had your way, it sounds like you'd like to just replace the bank entirely. And you guys would just come in as a pure equity partner in these deals. Vernon J. 03:33 That's right. That's the big idea. You know, where we are right now, I think there will be a need for a mixture within the capital stack to have some financing. But I think, you know, for all intents and purposes, the grand vision is to be able to replace, you know, those centralized organizations that they're convoluted with so much bureaucracy, you when you get your funding, you've ended up paying so much more than I think you need to pay. And I think blockchain technology is providing a solution, where you're kind of removing the middleman, you can remove lawyers, you can remove different people in that ecosystem or in that cycle that is kind of like superfluous. Sam Wilson 04:12 Yeah. I love the idea of blockchain. I love the potentials it has for a lot of industries, especially the real estate industry. It's which is just I don't think I'm telling you anything new, so disjointed in the way that deals get packaged up and done. I mean, title searches alone will just tell you that there's a lot of room for improvement. Are we actually reading a scanned document that was handwritten in 1895? We are reading, okay, great. Just want to make sure it's illegible. I mean, that's the type of stuff we're dealing with. And this will help solve that. But talk to me more practically about the nuances of launching a coin, of getting investors to trust that coin, then having that money then get deployed into the right projects. That's a lot of moving steps. Can you break that down for us? Vernon J. 04:57 Yeah, for sure. It is in everything on the back. blockchain begins and ends with community, right? So if it weren't for the fact that I've been building a community of stakeholders within the East New York section of Brooklyn, and, you know, 2014, I purchased eastnewyork.com, with my family. And that is the go-to place for everything dealing with East New York, the community, it doesn't matter if you're running for office, local office, if you're building a new development, you're opening up a new store, opening up a new business, whatever it is, all roads lead through eastnewyork.com. And we have over 30,000 members who are stakeholders within the community. So we've spent years developing and harnessing the trust within the community so that they trust who we are, they trust know what we're about. And the idea behind it is to create empowerment ecosystems, right, so where we not only own the media aspect of it, but then we also own the real estate. And we also are connected politically, we're also connected, you know, with all the stakeholders within the communities, I would say that's where it starts, because none of where we are today would have been possible without first building out the community. And then it's also credibility, right? I've got 16 years of experience in the real estate market as a CEO of EquityCoin. So I think when we think about blockchain, we think about this technology, it's not a way where you just come in and you're, all of a sudden, you can create this billion-dollar company or multi-million dollar industry, I think what is required is a credibility and kind of like the steps to take with any business, you know, that you have. So I use blockchain as a way to create more efficiencies in what we do. Right. And I think that's how we need to think about it. Because most of these companies that are coming today are doing really well with blockchain technology, they already have a track record of success. I would say before all of that it's a track record, it's making sure that you have credibility in the game and skin in the game. Sam Wilson 06:56 Yeah, that makes a heck of a lot of sense. It is an add-on to your business. It is not the creation of a new business is what I'm hearing. Vernon J. 07:03 That's right. And when you're creating a token, it's similar to creating stock, right? It's very similar in that I want to for the audience, say I want to be able to delineate between a cryptocurrency and a security token, because when people hear blockchain, they go right to Bitcoin. Oh, you're talking about that Bitcoin thing, right. But that's the wrong way to think about it. You know, when you think about blockchain technology, it's the basis of cryptocurrency, it's the basis of security token. It's the basis of NFTs. It is the underlying technology behind it. So a cryptocurrency similar to $1, right? Or the yen, or the euro is not an investment where you believe, don't get a promise of a return from a currency. And that's an important factor when you're dealing with the SEC. But when you have a security token, like EquityCoin, security token is actually backed by a company, it's actually backed by assets. And that's different components of blockchain technology. And that's where we feel is the next horizon, regular companies are going to be able to tokenize their assets, tokenize their company, and allow other people to come in and share the fruits of that labor. One more thing, Sam is like 20 years ago, when the internet was starting to bubble up, right? 20-25 years ago, if you had a website, as a company, you are hot stuff, even simply having a website kind of gave you a competitive advantage, you know, with your peers. But now today, you can go to GoDaddy, Squarespace, you can create your website within five minutes and a pretty comprehensive site, you know. And back then, in order to develop a site, you needed an HTML guy, you needed a PHP guy, it was costly. But again, today, it has become commoditized. So I think we're in that same space with tokenization. Tokenization, today, EquityCoin is a tokenized company. It's a hot-button topic. And I think it's cool. But in 20 years, it's going to be commoditized, you're going to be able, every company is going to be using Blockchain or having a tokenized component of their business, it's no longer going to be a novelty, but more of like a necessity, and more like what you need to do in the business. So I think right now, if you're tokenizing your company, it better have a utility, it better have some sort of advantage. You know, you're not just tokenizing for the sake of tokenization. That's an important piece to interject it. Sam Wilson 09:26 Appreciate you taking the time to really give some clarity around the difference between crypto security tokens, NFT's, all of that. So you took the step you created EquityCoin, right? You did that, and then I know you said you kind of piggyback that on eastnewyork.com. So you said hey, you started go out to your network. What do people do? Do they just trade their dollars for EquityCoin? How does that work? That's right, Vernon J. 09:49 So you're trading your fiat currency or it could be a cryptocurrency that you might have, Etherium for example. You can trade that into EquityCoin, and now as EquityCoin holder, you're entitled to quarterly dividends that are paid out from the income from the real estate. But the beauty of tokenization of a company or a real estate or an asset is that it gives you the ability to liquidate quickly. In a normal real estate transaction, if I have 1000 investors in this investment, normally, you can't get out of your position until we sell the entire asset. Or if you find somebody who might want to purchase your shares, then we got to have to get a lawyer involved. Sam Wilson 10:27 200 pages later, we've traded money. Vernon J. 10:29 Later, now we finally transferred, but with blockchain and with tokenization, it provides the infrastructure for you to be able to transact as if you were on the NASDAQ or the Russell but you can be a company that maybe only has $10 million in assets or $20 million in assets. But now you can trade as if you were, you know, publicly-traded or similar to a REIT. Sam Wilson 10:50 What are the securities considerations around this? I mean, this seems like it's an ever-evolving landscape where it's like, oh, one day you can do this. And oh, the next day yo, is 10 million bucks. Because you made a mistake, buddy. I mean, you see this stuff in the news all the time. How are you navigating that landscape? Vernon J. 11:06 Right. So here's the things, Sam, when you have increased freedom, you have increased responsibility, right. And when you're talking about cryptocurrency, if you own your crypto, and again, there's a difference between cryptocurrency and security tokens, right. But if you own your cryptocurrency, and you have it on an exchange, or you have it on your hard wallet, which I like to use ledger for the audience if they're interested, but you own that, and you are in full control of that. So if somebody steals your keys, your wallet, keys or somehow hacks you, there's no, you know, authority you can go to because that is kind of like the essence of the cryptocurrency world that you don't have ownership, right. But on the flip side, you've got security tokens. And since security tokens are bound by SEC rules and regulations, I'll give you an example one of my token holders lost their keys to their wallet. So we had to replenish, we had to burn their previous tokens, and then replenish their new tokens. This is something that's required with the SEC. This is again, Sam, why I believe that the tokenization of companies and security tokens as a whole is on the horizon is on the cusp of something big because I think people are looking for that balance. They want some security, but then they also want some freedom, and they want it in the middle at this moment. And I think security tokens brings those dynamics to the table. Sam Wilson 12:31 Yeah, and I think that is an interesting difference between a cryptocurrency and a security token, and that you as the sponsor can issue those security tokens. What have you found on the implementation side of it? Like I know, it's touted as, Hey, these are things that make it easy, we can have 10,000 investors each put in $1. And it's no more work than if I had one investor for $10,000. It's all the same. So I've been told, I don't know, because I don't do this. Is that true? Vernon J. 12:58 Again, Sam, it all comes back to community, right? Have you created that trust within your community or are you just creating this token out of thin air with no credibility and saying, hey, I want to do this big idea. And now people are investing in that idea. But then they don't have the complete trust. So if they don't have the trust in you, or in the project, it becomes a lot more cloud. And I've seen projects kind of falter, because they've kind of built things from a place of hype. When you build something from a place of hype, it's easy to crumble, it's easy to come down. Everybody listening to this, you know, if you're thinking about tokenization, if you're thinking about, you know, using blockchain technology, you know, tap into your credibility of what makes you great, and what makes you unique, because that combined with blockchain technology is super powerful. Sam Wilson 13:47 Right. And I think one of the takeaways from this is to demystify some of it is that it isn't the recreation of a new business, it's a different way of doing business. Same thing we were doing before, it's a different way of doing it. That brings just some new communication, some new potential ease of implementation to the operator to the investors, but it's not, it's still the same actual business. Last question for you, I think I might have more, is on the how you guys are selecting projects. I know you're one of your big pushes the affordable housing side, I'm assuming you guys put the money together and then go out and find quality operators to work with or are you guys as well doing the projects yourself? Vernon J. 14:27 So for EquityCoin, we are doing the projects ourselves. We actually have a call this afternoon with a developer in Brooklyn who's doing a $250 million development, and they're looking to equity coin to be a part of their capital stack so that we can bring the community in so they can own a piece of the asset. They own a piece of this new development because they're getting a lot of pushback from the community because the community said hey, you guys are coming into our neck of the woods from outside and you're not even giving an opportunity for people within the community to own a piece of this right? So now you know EquityCoin can come in and be that missing link from, you know, that bridge between the community and the developer. That's one component. The other. Another big thing that we're working on right now is a system called EquityShare. And what we envision an equity share to be is sort of like the coin base for real estate tokens. And we want to empower other community developers and leaders, you know, like myself all over the country who are looking to tokenize and create a token for their movement. So we can actually help them with the infrastructure of legal compliance, you know, the smart contract, you know, all the SEC, FINRA, making sure that they are breeding a holistic approach to tokenization. And now on equity share, you know, we'll have 100 different tokens that are backed by other assets. It can be a student housing token, it could be a retail token, it could be Amazon warehouse token, Airbnb token, you know, the options are endless. But I think what's important is having the right infrastructure. And again, like I said, before, when the internet started, it was hard to create a website, it was costly. Now you do it in five minutes. And right now, if you want to create a token, it's pretty costly. If you want to create a comprehensive token that has rate network, bring working in the smart contract, but in five to 10 years, you're going to be able to do that, in a snap of a finger. And for EquityShare. Our goal is to get there pretty quickly. So we can, yeah. Sam Wilson 14:41 If you were taking a stab at what the cost is right now to develop a quality token, what do you think that is? Vernon J. 16:32 I would say a minimum of 100,000, minimum of 100,000. Because if you look at our balance sheet, most of our capital goes towards compliance, right? So making sure that the token is created in a way that is congruent and consistent with SEC rules and regulations. You know, that's one piece of it. But then also, you've got to make sure that you have the KYC AML. So know your customer, anti-money laundering, these are all things that need to be baked in so that you can avoid fraudsters on your system. It all comes together, I would say about 100 G's. Sam Wilson 17:03 Right. Got it. Man, Vernon, I love what you're doing. I love your mission. And I love the way you're taking it down. That's absolutely awesome. I mean, and just the idea of you building eastnewyork.com and then coming in and just augmenting that with obviously, blockchain technology, security tokens, all that stuff. And thanks for taking the time to really explain that I think you explain in a very clear way that for a lot of us, myself included, it's commonly like I think I get it but not quite sure. So thank you. Vernon J. 17:32 Let me leave you with this sample. When I explained blockchain technology, I tried to explain it as the internet of accounting, right? When you start thinking about it like that, it's like okay, you know, you've got it's simply a ledger, and it's a ledger that can't be disrupted, can't be you, know, messed with. And when you have that, you create this trustless society where you now can, every transaction that you make on the blockchain is recorded and recorded forever as long as you have an internet connection. Yeah. Sam Wilson 17:59 That makes a heck of a lot of sense. Vernon, if our listeners want to get in touch with you what is the best way to do that? Vernon J. 18:05 Best way is most likely Instagram. My Instagram is @vpeso and then also Instagram @equitycoin, follow our journey. We just did a filming for PBS. So we're going to be in their next segment for their Nova documentary series. Really cool. So look out for that in November. Sam Wilson 18:22 Awesome, man. Vernon. Thank you again for your time. I do appreciate it. Vernon J. 18:24 Sam. Thanks a lot, bro.

In this episode, you'll also hear: The #1 reason your book isn't selling – and how to fix itQuestions to ask yourself that will shift your mindset toward action that actually makes a differenceReal-life examples and resources to help you learn and practice networking – even if it terrifies youHow to identify and find the right people to grow your networkBe sure to read all the way to the end for important links and information!When you write a book, you want to share your message with the world. You want your words to touch people's lives and make a difference. But here's the thing: if no one buys your book, how can it have that kind of impact? The truth is, sales = impact. The more books you sell, the more people you reach. So how do you sell more books? That's exactly what we're going to cover in this next installment of the Book Sales Success Secrets series, where we're breaking down the obstacles to your success and how to overcome them with the powerful combination of God + marketing. That's right – if you're a Christian author, it's important to remember that God and marketing can and do work hand-in-hand to help you to sell more books. Yes, you need to put your trust in God, and you also need to use the marketing tools available to you. By using both, you can reach your audience and get them to read – and buy – your book. Remember, God can do amazing things when we put our faith in Him. And no, that doesn't mean that we have to use salesy or sneaky tactics. Everything we've been talking about in this series is ethical and above-board. So let's go ahead and jump into Book Sales Success Secret #6, which is all about networkingThe #1 Reason Your Book Isn't SellingHere is a truth you need to embrace: it's not enough for you to just write great books. It's not. You also need to make sure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to read your book. When I talk to people about becoming a successful author, I'm sometimes amazed at how we can get caught up in the art – that is, in writing a masterpiece that is going to be amazing and change the world. Don't get me wrong, this is an admirable goal. But it can't be the only goal that you can have in mind if you really want to sell more books. You cannot be only consumed with the art of writing, because focusing solely on the art of writing isn't going to get your books into more hands. So let's talk about the #1 reason your book isn't selling. And I'll warn you: it's going to be hard to swallow. But I need you to stick it out. The #1 reason your book isn't selling is because you don't exist.Ouch, right? It hurts to hear, but when you think about it, it's true. How many people really know about you and your book?Let's do a quick exercise. Look at the follower count on each of your social media accounts – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok. Check out how many people are in your Facebook group, and on your email list If you have one. Even if you have something like 10,0000 followers across all platforms, you have to keep in mind that there are literally billions of adults over the age of 21 around the globe. Realistically, each of us is no more than a drop in the bucket. The world doesn't know you or I exist. Now, don't think this means you need billions – or even millions – of people to know who you are, because you don't. But thousands? Absolutely. Before people can buy your book, they have to know who you are. They have to know you exist. That's where networking comes in.Authors Don't Find Readers; Readers Find BooksIf your book isn't selling, it's not that it sucks. It's not that you wasted your time and money. It's not that there isn't a market for your book. It's simply that not enough people know you exist. Your biggest challenge is obscurity, and you need to fix it ASAP if you truly want to make your mark on the world. Because, let's face it, you don't really buy into the idea of, “if one life has changed, it will all be worth it.” You did not go through all that you went through to change one life – you wrote the book, or books, because you wanted to impact the world. So it's time to do it. It's time to stop putting all of your time and effort into the art of writing books, without giving equal time and attention to marketing them and getting them into people's hands. But how do you do that? How can you get the word out? It boils down to this: authors don't find readers; readers find books. This is a simple, but super important, mindset shift that must happen if you really want to have the impact you're called to make. The key to success actually isn't selling books to readers, but making it easy for readers to find your book. Lack of visibility is the author's biggest enemy. So you've got to flip the question around. Instead of asking yourself, “How do I sell more books?” ask yourself, “How can I make it easy for my ideal reader to find me and my book? And then, when they find me, how can I make it easy for them to say yes?” As you'll likely realize when you ask yourself these questions, one of the best ways to do this is to increase your visibility. And you can do that by networking – or, as I like to call it, building strategic connections. The best part is this is a place literally anyone can start at.Getting Out of the Comfort ZoneBefore we get to networking and building strategic connections, however, I thought it would be helpful to share a quick story: a little bit of backstory on myself. I was not always willing to connect with people. Quite honestly, I did pretty much everything in my power to make sure I could avoid situations where I had to meet new people. My mom tells me all the time that she's amazed about the person that I've become – and you might think the same thing if you interact with me in the Facebook group or if you know me in real life. Growing up, I was a shy and introverted only child, and I spent a lot of time by myself. I'd interact with a few kids here and there at school, but I wasn't even close to being outgoing, or even social. It was like I was a one-woman show! Then, to top it all off, my mom joined a Pentecostal church when I was nine. This church was very strict about what you can wear – no pants, minimal jewelry – and what you could do – no secular music, no dances. So I always felt that I stuck out like a sore thumb and never really fit in. God always allowed me to have a couple of close friends, but that was about it. And, for a long time, it stayed that way. All the way through college, and even in my early days as a young working adult, I marveled at how some people could make friends and connections so easily, while I always felt so awkward doing it. So I didn't do it. When I went to events, I gravitated towards hanging out with people I already knew – and if I didn't know anyone that was going, you could count me out. I was not even coming. The idea of going to a place with a roomful of people I did not know terrified me. Fast-forward to now. Yes, I still have my inner circle of close friends. But I'm also blessed to have connections with people all across the world. People in London, Africa, Germany – I am blessed to have connections everywhere, and I can go to local events and start networking without a second thought. (Though, to be fair, I do still need time to recharge after too much “peopling,” as I call it!) Plus, I can easily strike up a conversation online with someone I don't even know, without being salesy or sleazy. But this change never would have happened if it weren't for one of my best friends pushing me out of my comfort zone. She literally signed us up for Toastmasters – not just herself, but both of us – and made sure that I showed up so I could get over some of my nerves. From there, I learned to consistently put myself in situations that forced me to meet new people. This was not natural to me, but I realized that if I was going to really grow, I had to keep pushing myself out of my comfort zone. So you see, the growth in my skill set is largely influenced by the people that I have been connected to. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I would not be who I am, or where I am, without the connections that I've been able to have. Without networking, without learning how to make connections, I would not be talking to you right now. I would have never thought about doing a podcast, because that would have been putting myself out there way too much. The Power of Networking StrategicallySo let's talk about networking by building strategic connections. Think of it like a long line at your favorite amusement park. Imagine you head over to the new ride, and a sign is showing a two-hour wait to be able to get on the ride. You're bummed, right? But you decide that you really want to get on the ride, so you get in line. And as you walk over, you hear someone yell your name. You look up, and it's your friend that you just connected with at an event last month. They are all the way up in the line, one of the first 10 people, and they invite you up to join them and ride it together. Your wait time just went from 2 hours to 15 minutes, all because of networking. Because of your strategic connections. That is truly powerful, and it is a representation of how God can and will work in your life. The issue is that we are usually too consumed with ourselves and what we're trying to do to recognize these opportunities. All too often, we don't put ourselves in situations where we can meet new people. And then when things are divinely orchestrated, we sometimes brush people off before the true value of the connection presents itself. But Scripture itself supports the idea that connections are important. Proverbs 27:17 reminds us, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” So it stands to reason that if you want to be successful as an author – and in life – it's important to surround yourself with and stay connected to the right people. Who Are the Right People?But, you might be thinking, who are the right people? Great question! We have the best chance of success when we surround ourselves with people who are: Like-minded Focused on learning and growing Pursuing their own goalsWilling to give support, like promoting your book or connecting you to people who could promote your book or your businessOpen to receiving supportIn other words, the goal of networking is to foster a mutually beneficial relationship, where you are adding value to their life, and they are adding value to yours. In contrast, people who are pulling in a different direction, not focused on their goals, still talking about it rather than being about it, and are married to doing things on their own versus asking for help are not good candidates for your dream team. How Do I Find the Right People?So the next question is, could you use some more of the right people in your circle? If your answer is yes, let this be your challenge to take intentional steps to practice networking and build more strategic connections. They don't even have to all be business connections – the important thing is to connect with more people. Where we get stuck is when we are presenting our offer and message to the same old group of people who have already heard that message and already made the decision as to whether or not it is for them. Coming back to that group isn't going to get you anywhere. You need to be constantly expanding the number of people who know who you are. Because the more people know who you are, the more opportunities will present themselves. Not sure where or how to start networking? Try one or more of these ideas: You could join a meetup group, either in your local community or online, to explore new interests. You could join Toastmasters like I did, and connect with others who are building their speaking skills and preparing to grow their businesses. You could check out Business Network International (BNI) as a resource to develop lasting relationships with like-minded business professionals. You could go to a Facebook group, like the Christian Authors Network, and start connecting with people in that group. Not just posting about your book on Support Saturdays, but making an intentional effort to connect with people in the group. You could go to other Facebook groups with Christian writers or entrepreneurs in them. Just remember, these are all opportunities to meet like-minded folks online – not to spam them with posts about your book. But the more people you connect with, the wider your reach will be. And the more people who know about you and your book, the better off you will be. Building strategic connections, a.k.a. networking, is one of the most effective ways to get noticed, build relationships, sell books, and grow your business. Your Next StepsEssentially, there are five reasons you should start building strategic connections today: You'll make new friends and connections that you did not have before. You'll learn about new opportunities, because new people make new opportunities. You'll get exposure for your books, because when you are meeting new people, they always want to know a little bit about who you are and what you do. It's a perfect opportunity to share. You'll expand your reach and influence. You're a great person, so getting connected to other great people means that your message is going to spread, because people like to talk about good things in their life. You'll generate leads and opportunities. Instead of trying to get leads through salesy, sleazy tactics, it will be a much more natural realization of, “Hey, we have something in common. We can help each other.” At its heart, networking is all about being willing to both lend support and receive support. So now it's time to get intentional: what is one intentional step that you will make to start building strategic connections? Then be sure to come back next week for Book Sales Success Secret #7!

We're surrounded by an abundance of time, money, and opportunity. Do you believe that? I didn't for many years, but challenging my understanding in this area has changed my life in unimaginable ways. I grew up with a framework of fear, scarcity, and lack. It was ingrained into me that ‘this is how things are, so accept it and move on.' It took me a long time, but I didn't do that. I asked questions, did the work, and changed my future. In this episode, I'll help you begin to do the same and to embrace your upside.

The vision is there. The passion, too! But where are you going to find the time to launch your new business – especially when so many logistics stand in the way? Jeannine Thompson, CEO of FireLaunch, has been there and explains on this episode of She Turned Entrepreneur how she once wished for a resource like … well … her! As a nurse transitioning out of high-stress burnout towards her dream of helping others as a coach, the path seemed straightforward. But, as we all know, a lot of variables go into getting any kind of venture up and running. Mastering all the necessary technologies, platforms and systems can be paralyzing. If you're feeling stuck or overwhelmed, this is the show for you! FireLaunch offers entrepreneurs – especially women in the coaching space – the full complement of tools to get their practices up and running. Fast! In under three months, you'll go from articulating your vision to witnessing it all coming to life. Jeannine and her team take care of all the things that can really bog us down, both technologically and creatively. Among the services they offer: Logo design, website content, email marketing templates, lead generation, social media management and more. You'll enjoy learning why you don't have to figure it all out for yourself. Jeannine is here to provide the very service she once so badly wished for – and could not find – when she was trying to get her coaching business established. She's the knowledgeable and savvy friend you want in your corner! Click here if you'd like to book a free discovery call with Jeannine to discuss your business goals and how FireLaunch can help you achieve them! Click here to listen to, rate and review this or previous She Turned Entrepreneur episodes. Here are key takeaways from the conversation:· Sometimes the seeds of the business you're meant to launch are hidden in a need you yourself have been unable to fill with what's currently available.· If your offering isn't already out there, stay the course. You can create your own category of business!· It's okay to pivot. Sometimes you have to go through things that don't work out in order to reach the thing that does.· Technology can be a huge time sink. You don't have to wrestle with – or learn – it all.· Self-doubt and Imposter Syndrome are common among many of us just starting out, which is why it's so important to have a pro in our corner! Inertia can otherwise set in.· Another plus in asking for support? Your business will grow exponentially faster.· Find yourself stuck in first gear? Try writing down daily goals (or just a single goal) the night before and then commit – right from the start of the day – to getting the job done. Here's a quick look into the episode:· As a stressed-out nurse with a sleep disorder who knew she needed to make a change, Jeannine started researching options for using her skill set in an entrepreneurial way.· Health coaching made sense on every level. It was a process that involved a huge (if creative) learning curve and opportunity to explore what Jeannine did and didn't enjoy.· Technology over time started to become overwhelming and Jeannine just wanted a friend – someone who could come over and help her identify what was important, tools that were useful and how to access them. She wanted something she couldn't find – and her new coaching niche was born!· The way Jeannine works to help coaching businesses launch:o First she elicits the dream – what is it that you want to build?o Within a matter of weeks, Jeannine and her team provide the plan and take care of all the start-up necessities: logo, branding, website copy, lead magnet creation, building out email marketing templates and CRM, social media content.o Skills that might take years to assimilate are immediately unleashed. o No need to reinvent the wheel or waste hours figuring things out.· An added bonus to using Jeannine's holistic approach: You don't have to rely on a piecemeal network of untested freelancers to fill holes in your startup framework.· Jeannine's model is based on that of a project manager (or even a general contractor) orchestrating the various elements that ultimately come together to create your dream.· Weekly one-on-one meetings ensure that the vision is being realized and that the entrepreneur has ample opportunity to participate and weigh in with feedback.· FireLaunch provides its startup service to all kinds of companies, but Jeannine is especially knowledgeable about the coaching industry and frequently works with women in the space (with whom she empathizes, having been there herself). · The biggest challenges that confront would-be entrepreneurs:o Lack of time and constrained resources.o Figuring out the right technologies.o Imposter Syndrome. · Jeannine's Best Advice for Aspiring Entrepreneurs:o Don't try to do it all on your own.o Doing it without help doesn't save money in the long run.o Don't let things you hate doing (which for Jeannine was figuring out technology) sap the joy out of the original vision and passion.o Get rid of the tasks you don't like doing in order to preserve excitement and momentum.· About Goal-setting: o Don't limit yourself to so-called “realistic” goals.o Dream big and go for things that really excite you, even if in little steps.o Write it all down! Codify in black and white what you intend to do, daily and beyond. It helps to set goals for your day the night before.· What's the key to chasing dreams on our own terms? Jeannine believes:o We need to condition ourselves to dream bigger than we have in the past.o Think big! It's a matter of striding forward confidently.o If we take one step at a time, the path forward will always open up to greet us.· Recommended Reading:o "Awaken the Giant Within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny!" By Tony Robbins. An author whose work speaks to her, which is why Jeannine makes it a point to reread often.o "Designing Your Life: Build a Life that Works for You," by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans. It's a great book for brainstorming and creating a go-forward framework.

The Royals can't find any momentum. Last week, after a 7-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, they were hammered 10-0 the next day. After taking the first game of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, the Royals dropped the second game and lost the series on Monday. Lack of clutch hitting continues to be the biggest issue. Slugger Salvador Perez seems to be coming out of his malaise with two hits in each of his last three games, raising his batting average by nearly 40 points. But Whit Merrifield continues to be mired in a season-long slump. On today's SportsBeat KC podcast, we sort through it all with beat writer Lynn Worthy and columnist Sam McDowell.

Getting pregnant is just the first of many hurdles people with PCOS face. With higher risks for pregnancy complications and then unforeseen issues after pregnancy like difficulty breastfeeding, it may feel as if the universe is against you. But in this week's episode, we're tackling breastfeeding with PCOS, what complications may arise, and what to do about it. IS it true that people with PCOS have more issues with milk supply? Why is that and what can we do about it? What if you had gestational diabetes during your pregnancy, and baby ends up in the NICU for a time while you're sent home? How does THAT impact your plans to breastfeed? Well, I am in no way a lactation expert, so I invited my friend Megan McMillan to come talk about these issues and more. Meghan McMillin holds a Master's Degree in Human Nutrition and is also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). She spent 5 years working clinically in the NICU, pediatric floor, and women's units. In 2019, she started her own business, Mama & Sweet Pea Nutrition, a private nutrition and lactation practice and consulting company that specializes in prenatal, postpartum, and infant care. The mother to two kids with food allergies, helping lactating dyads struggling with food allergies or intolerances is her passion! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to pick this lactation expert's brain on air... and I know you'll benefit too! This Week We Talk About: Different types of lactation certifications, which type of lactation consultant may be best for your situation, and when to reach out for help Common issues that can come up during the process of lactation What causes low milk supply in PCOS and how to know in advance if it might be an issue for you Why a blood-sugar-balancing diet is key to supporting lactation, especially in PCOS Some popular galactagogues (milk promoters) and which have actual evidence supporting their use How hormones and hormone imbalances affect lactation Which nutrients are most important while breastfeeding — and which ones your body will take from your own stores to prioritize getting those nutrients in your milk Lack of societal support for the 4th trimester/postpartum period and how boundaries can help improve your milk supply How you can meet your breastfeeding goals even when baby is in the NICU Mentioned in this episode PCOS Meal Prep Made Easy Workshop – In this hour-long workshop, I break down what foods you want to include for PCOS and what you may want to consider avoiding or minimizing. Learn my simple 3-step formula for planning meals with PCOS, which includes learning how to eat to balance blood sugar.

There are countless numbers of unsolved missing person cases and unsolved murders in the United States. Those numbers are amplified however, when applied to the indigenous communities in the nation. Yet, there are no resources and many roadblocks in the way of law enforcement when they are investigating these issues. Now, a new government initiative looks to address those issues. Will it be all talk like usual, or will they actually provide the resources these communities so desperately need and that these families whose loved ones are missing deserve.

Educators Turned Unschoolers Do you like the idea of homeschooling but have a few doubts? Not sure if you are up to the task? Feeling under-qualified? Or maybe you are hoping that a progressive education will equate to the same thing. Now if only you can find the right school...... My episode guest, has many years of experience working in progressive education. Lesley Jones-Sessler is an educator and a former school administrator now turned unschooler. You can find her on her blog, Watch Monkey Mama to learn more about her family's unschooling journey. When it came time for Lesley to begin looking for a school for her son, she was saddened by the lack of schools that fit the bill for progressive education in the state of Indiana. After a visit with their local public school, Lesley was also dismayed by the lack of diversity in the staff of the local school system. And then, Covid hit. Lesley decided that homeschool was now the most viable option. Little did she know she would find herself down the beginning of a rabbit hole of life learning. After hours researching various homeschooling methods and philosophies, Lesley stumbled across the match for her family: the self directed learning community. In This Episode In This Episode Lesley and I explore the lines of school, homeschool and unschool. We break down: Vocabulary terms in education- What is the difference between traditional vs progressive schooling? We discuss the Traditional viewpoint of - Authority, Lack of choice, Teaching to the test and drill and kill. Versus Progressive Education- Multi-age teaching, flexibility, hands on and child directed. Child Led Learning vs Self Directed Learning within Progressive Schools- Are they one- in- the same or is there a difference? Do both happen in progressive education? Lesley shares examples of what learnings look like in their home The power of "letting go" in unschooling Is it harder for educators to let go and unschool? We discuss her Deschooling process and how she shuts down negative self talk- ( you know that little voice of doubt and fear that we can all experience, coming from within and the outside? ) The two types of naysayers- and why understanding those types helps us to choose our response or reactions (or lack of) to them Having an accountability partner and advocate- why her sister is the biggest gift to their unschooling experience Lesley's advice to educators that are considering homeschooling Resources Reach out to Lesley through her blog- Watch Monkey Mama or on Instagram- @watchmonkeymama How To Be An Awesome Homeschooler Summit- https://howtobeanawesomehomeschooler.com/ Patreon Community- Become a patron~ https://www.patreon.com/honeyimhomeschoolingthekids (Don't forget that starting this May, you can join the community for monthly live meet-ups through Zoom) Other episodes mentioned- Building Literacy At Home See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Is the Counseling Compact Good for Therapists? Curt and Katie chat about the brand-new Counseling Compact and what therapists may not know or understand about these interstate agreements. We explore the proposed benefits as well as the potential risks and complications like regulatory discrepancies and a lack of consumer protections. We also look at how big tech can benefit while individual clinicians may be left unable to compete in a larger market. In this podcast episode we talk about the new Counseling Compact and Psypact The counselors got their 10th state and officially have Counseling Compact to practice in other states. We thought it would be a good idea to talk about what that means (and what we might want to pay attention to). What is the Counseling Compact? Opportunities for practicing privileges (not licensure) in other states The complexity of putting together these interstate compacts Implementation and regulation hurdles Scope of practice discrepancies and concerns Law and Ethics practices across states Benefits of Interstate Compacts for Mental Health Providers Continuity of care Ease of meeting with clients who are moving around the country Bringing clinicians to areas where there is a workforce shortage Potential Problems with the Counseling Compact “This very much goes against, according to the FBI, any sort of patient protection – that any of these licensing boards are put into place in the first place: to protect consumers.” – Curt Widhalm Not bringing more clinicians, if only states with workforce shortages join Doesn't solve the infrastructure problems (i.e., stable Wi-Fi) for rural areas that typically don't have local therapists The people who most benefit: the big tech companies like Better Help The FBI is opposing this legislation due to lack of federal background checks Lack of consumer protection or consistency in what consumers can expect from their therapist Costs for the therapists to get practicing privileges Large gigantic group practices and tech solutions will contract with insurance and leave smaller practices unable to compete and required to be private pay Solving the Problems with the Counseling Compact “It may actually delay [a national license], because it's a band aid where people can go practice in other states. So why would I get a national license, if I can practice in a couple other states and not worry about taking another test, getting another background check…?” – Katie Vernoy Overarching regulation and expectations at a national level Federal bodies to oversee background checks and consumer protections Expensive, time-intensive We don't have universal healthcare, so insurance parity will need to be addressed (and not just by big tech) Our Generous Sponsors for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: OOTify OOTify.

Announcer 00:47 You're listening to The Modern Therapist's Survival Guide where therapists live, breathe and practice as human beings. To support you as a whole person and a therapist, here are your hosts, Curt Widhalm and Katie Vernoy. Curt Widhalm 01:03 Welcome back modern therapists. This is The Modern Therapist's Survival Guide. I'm Curt Widhalm with Katie Vernoy. And this is the podcast for therapists about things going on in the therapy worlds. And recently, the 10th state has joined the counseling compact, which initiates that it is all coming together for licensed professional counselors here in America. And what this does is creates a whole lot of space for people to make up what they think that it is. And we are here to correct that information. So, Katie, lots of things to talk about in this episode, what are your initial reactions. Katie Vernoy 01:49 So my initial reactions typically with all of these pacts, so there's Counseling Pact, there's PSYPACT or Counseling Compact and PSYPACT, which is a psychologist, and then the social workers are working on something. As for MFTs so far, we don't have something going on. But I have mixed feelings. Because I think for me, I have clients who travel around to different states. And so I can only see them when they're in states I'm licensed in, I've got ideas around being able to support folks in areas that have fewer clinicians or clinicians who specialize in and what they need. And I also recognize I live in a state that has a very high cost of living. And so if there are therapists in states with much lower cost of living who are quote, unquote, taking my clients, I think it would be something where that that may make it harder for me to compete in my own market. So lots of mixed feelings. And I'm not quite sure at least until we started prepping for this episode, I wasn't quite sure what these compacts meant. And so I think probably we should start with, What's the Counseling Compact? If we, you know, it's PSYPACT different? What's the social workers working on? But broadly, what are these things? And why do people care about them? Curt Widhalm 03:05 So these pacts are going to be slightly different between the counselors and the psychologists and psychologists is PSYPACT. The Counseling Compact is for counselors, we're not really going to talk a whole lot about social workers and MFTs, because they have not gotten their act together and have anything moving in this direction yet. Social workers do. But in talking about the two that are already in place, or quickly moving into place, what it does is allows for somebody, this is language from the Counseling Compact, what it does is allows for somebody who is licensed in and resides in one of the member states to have practicing privileges through some regulation stuff in other states. So it's not just like a license reciprocity where you are granted now a 10 state license, you have to go through some certain steps of just picking a couple of states out of this here. But if you are, say, practicing in Nebraska, and you have a person in West Virginia, who wants to utilize your services, you would need to go to the West Virginia Board and have a streamlined ability to get a privilege to practice with clients in West Virginia. Katie Vernoy 04:30 Okay, but you have to live in Nebraska, it can't be like I live in California, and I'm licensed in Nebraska. So now then I can practice with somebody in West Virginia, if I get that streamlined. Curt Widhalm 04:42 Yes, and this is the language that you have to be licensed in and reside in one of those states. So many people have licensure in multiple states already. If you are not one of the 10 states as a resident this does not apply to you. So this is not like a, you know, huge like opening up the gates to everybody living all over the place. California being where Katie and I reside, we can't just go and get licensed in Utah and now have the ability to practice in all of these other states. A residency requirement is part of this as well. Katie Vernoy 05:20 Well, one thing, I think that it does start things moving, because I know with PSYPACT, there are 34 states in process. So it is the beginning of something, it's just a matter of right now, this is the very beginning stages and other states may join. But in some of the conversations and research we've done, it sounds like there's a lot that goes into it once a state joins. And even in putting together the overarching compact, there is this need to get kind of almost universal expectations, kind of an overarching, regulatory body, there's also needs to, you know, look at scope of practice issues, which at least as we're aware of MFT stuff, but there's very different scope of practice for California MFTs than there is for Texas, or West Virginia MFTs, for example. And so there's a lot of complexity that's going to be sorted out as this starts to get implemented. But the idea is that these compacts these interstate compacts are meant to provide a launchpad for more states to join, right? Curt Widhalm 06:29 And this is some of the stuff that's got to be ironed out over the next couple of years. And frankly, I'd be surprised if all 10 of these states are able to address some of these discrepancies over the next few years. And for example, and I know not all of these states are currently part of the 10. But they do sometimes have some legislation to get them involved in the Counseling Compact here. But looking at the different requirements in different states, Georgia as an example, one of the 10 States does have a pretty high barrier to entry when it comes to becoming licensed within the state. And so I'm going to emphasize again, this is practicing privileges in other states, that is not a full reciprocity of license. So if somebody is practicing, gets practicing privileges in Georgia as a member of this Counseling Compact, one of the things that needs to be addressed is the discrepancy between what is allowed from one state to the next, for example, some states allow counselors to provide diagnostics of clients, other states do not and what has yet to be ironed out on this is how much does this change the scope of practice in these other states? What's unclear at this point is how these things are going to be regulated. While there is a central body that will oversee this compact, because of the way that it's set up each of these states are the ones who are still overseeing their own licensees, disciplinary actions and abilities to practice. So it's not like you're gonna be able to sit at home and do telehealth across all of these 10 states, and be able to practice just in the way that you are at home with your home state's clients, you're also going to run into well, I can diagnose this client but not this one. Or I need to be aware of, you know, my ability to do things ethically, one way in one state, but because of the ways that the laws are written in another state, I'm not allowed to do this. So these are some of the things that now have to be centrally addressed across all of these states here. Katie Vernoy 08:48 And I think it's something that can get very confusing, but I want to re emphasize that there is this element of expectation that this means I'm in licensed and these other states and and because it's practicing privileges, is it telehealth only? If I go visit the state, could I still see those clients in person? Like what is the what is the practical difference between practicing privileges and licensure? In this regard. Curt Widhalm 09:12 The differences is, it's not a license in another state. It's the allowance of you to be able to provide services to people in that state. But it is not the equivalent of having a license in both states. Katie Vernoy 09:30 But what is the practical difference there? Like why do I care if I'm licensed or have practicing privileges? Curt Widhalm 09:37 One of the major differences is that it's a lot easier to revoke practicing privileges than it is to revoke somebody's license. Having a license in both states means that you are obligated to both states licensing boards. What practicing privileges means is that you're allowed to practice here but you're still responsible to your own state's governing body for disciplinary actions, and so on and so forth. So it could be very easy. If a therapist is working with a client who's out of state and residing in Georgia, for example, Georgia could very easily be like, you're not meeting the requirements of practice in our state where you're doing out things, things outside the scope of practice in our state. And we don't like that, and you're no longer allowed to practice here. So it's a lot easier than going through a lot of the big disciplinary actions that may require revoking somebody's license in a state that they're actually licensed in. Katie Vernoy 10:40 So for the clinician, it means that they would really need to be able to identify all the different scope of practice, how to really stay up to date in all these different states, as well as what is that kind of fine line that I can walk, either to treat all my clients the same, but super restricted, or, you know, like having different rubrics for how I treat each client. So it can get pretty complicated is what you're saying, for the clinician to pay attention to what's required of them. Curt Widhalm 11:11 Yeah, and I think to this is where the goal is over the next couple of years to change some of this information. So that way, we're able to make it a lot simpler for people because the goal in this is with the intention of making practice easier, allowing for more people to have access to more mental health providers. However, these obstacles exist, and giving kind of the next couple of years of the ability for state legislatures to change the subsequent laws that now need to go into effect because this is in place, the goal probably is to simplify this stuff. Katie Vernoy 11:50 Okay. Curt Widhalm 11:51 And I haven't heard or seen anything where any of these member states have, you know, any real opposition in this way, it's just that things in the legislature can take other priorities. I mean, we saw this with the COVID 19 pandemic, where it's like all the states for a couple of years where like, everything now has to focus on COVID. So some of these obstacles are still in place. And it's just a acknowledgment that that's the system that we currently live in. Katie Vernoy 12:21 So you mentioned kind of getting more providers for places that have provider shortages. And I think that's one of the biggest stated benefits, I think, clinician match and finding clinicians that have a specialty when you don't have a lot of clinicians in your state can be very helpful. There's also continuity of care. I've talked about my clients traveling around and especially as things open back up, there's clinicians or clients that are traveling a lot more and so we have to time their sessions versus just being able to meet at a regular time via telehealth, I think there's a lot of positives that are being seen here. We've started talking about some of the hesitations and and and we are aware that the for the MFT stuff CAMFT, AAMFT and AAMFTRB, you know, what least AMFT and CAMFT are talking and have reached out to AAMFTRB, whatever that is. Curt Widhalm 13:12 Yeah, you got it right. Katie Vernoy 13:13 So there's, there's conversations happening, I think, and obviously different stages for all the licenses, there's, there's a, there isn't a knowledge that this is something it's kind of the wave of the future, because we can interact so freely across state lines, like why not get this process in place, but there's a lot of complications, you know, the overarching scope of practice, the complication of setting it up and running it and all those kinds of stuff. There's a lot of stuff that's very challenging there. How much do we want to talk about that, that element versus you, you've already previewed for me anyway, that you are a little bit of a skeptic here. When do we want to what do we When do we want to shift gears to that? Because I think that there's so many folks are super excited about this. And I think there are things that are exciting about it. But there are some real concerns that I want to make sure we get to. So where should we go next? I guess is the question that I'm asking here. Curt Widhalm 14:06 So this has all of the makings of a wonderful piece of legislation and cooperation that I don't know actually addresses what it's saying that it's intended to address. Katie Vernoy 14:21 Okay. Curt Widhalm 14:21 It is no surprise to anybody who listens to our podcasts that we have a mental health crisis, and we have a very understaffed mental health workforce. This theoretically allows for more clients to address more providers, but many of these states are amongst the most impacted as far as having the fewest providers available. And so if you combine 10 states who don't have enough workforce for each of their own individual states, by their 10 powers combined, theoretically can't address that even more people are going to be able to access a limited number of providers. It's not like we have, you know, a bunch of people who are all just residing in Utah, there's, you know, 9 million LPCs in Utah, who now just have like all of this free time to go and see clients who need to see counselors that Utah just has this, you know, mass amounts of people who have been confined to by state lines. This is, you know, a bunch of people without enough food now sharing that they don't have enough food with more people in more places. Katie Vernoy 15:38 It doesn't make it worse. It just doesn't solve it is what is how I see it. But I think if folks who, if these states that have those needs don't get it started, I think it's hard because I think the big states don't need those extra jobs. Right? I mean, it maybe they do. I mean, I think there's a lot of clinicians in California, they're like, yeah, let me practice somewhere else, because I need I need clients, there's, you know, you could trip over a therapist, every few steps in California. So I mean, it's possible that with this starting, I mean, PSYPACT is going on 34 states. So we've moved beyond the the threshold in PSYPACT, where it's just states that are having provider shortages. I think I think I see what you're saying this does not solve? Did you want to start it? Curt Widhalm 16:28 But I do want to correct one thing that you're saying is, we have a bias because we hang out with a lot of therapists in a very populated city. Katie Vernoy 16:38 Sure. Curt Widhalm 16:38 But California has a mental health workforce shortage as well. It's just that, this goes to address that there's rural parts of our states. And there's rural parts of a lot of these other states that are part of this, that we we have our own shortages, and we're not able to address this inviting more people to address, you know, people in rural areas. It's well intended, but it doesn't motivate or necessarily get people to the jobs that are needed in these positions. Katie Vernoy 17:12 What you just said actually made me think about the series that we're still somewhat in the process of Fixing Mental Healthcare in America. But I think there's that that piece that the the RAND Corporation identified where there has been efforts and telehealth is a great effort to try to bring, you know, therapy to these rural areas, but the infrastructure and you know, good good WiFi, and all of the pieces to actually be able to address these things potentially are more impactful than just adding clinicians from another state that are probably going to want to access or your wealthy urban clients anyway. Curt Widhalm 17:52 Which leads to my second criticism of this is that because of the scramble that's going to happen, the people who are most likely able to address the shortcomings of this public policy position across these 10 states are venture capital led groups like BetterHelp, that will do all of the legwork to match you up with clients in all of these rural areas. And we've got other episodes that we will talk in, you know, in BetterHelp's defence it's not just BetterHelp who can take advantage of these. But I have my concerns that the people who have already been doing this against the law, as we've discussed in our previous episodes are motivating therapists to practice across state lines, when they're not allowed to are the ones who are going to continue to contribute to the already capitalistic problems of our profession. And once again, not really with the best intentions of what clients have in store for them. But just by virtue of being able to match people more easily than any of the individual therapists in private practice. Where like, hey, my clients going on vacation, I can still see them for their regular session. Katie Vernoy 19:21 We'll link to a lot of those episodes in the show notes. But but what I'm hearing you say Curt, is that this is super charging the big tech problem. Curt Widhalm 19:31 Yes, it is. Katie Vernoy 19:32 Okay. Mic drop. Curt Widhalm 19:39 Pick that mic right back up, because they're, I don't know, I'm the resident, you know, contrarian of the show, the one who's maybe trying to poke at things and often I hear from listeners or from Katie or other people in my life is like, Why let perfection be the enemy of good? And so I am looking, you know, for who else opposes this? And I did come across somebody else on the opposition side of this. And it's a little group called the FBI. Katie Vernoy 20:20 Why? Why is the FBI opposing this? Curt Widhalm 20:25 For those unfamiliar with the FBI, they are a law enforcement agency. And they are one of the generally two places that when you go to get licensed that your background checks go to. Katie Vernoy 20:38 Ah, yes. Curt Widhalm 20:39 And so the rationale in other interstate compacts, including Counseling Compact, including PSYPACT, including medical compacts, and nurses compacts, the FBI has had a pretty consistent position on this. And their reasoning is that these states entering into these agreements, does not give them the right to supersede federal background checks. Now, allowing for practicing privileges in another state allows for the bypass of doing a background check for that state. Katie Vernoy 21:13 Oh, interesting. Curt Widhalm 21:14 And the way that the Department of Justice allows for some of these states to get the results of background checks, does not allow for them to share the information from those background checks. Katie Vernoy 21:27 Oh, that's why if you get licensed in another state, even if you can say like, Hey, I'm licensed over here, they did my background check. The new state still needs a background check. Curt Widhalm 21:37 And giving practicing privileges as I understand this legislation to be written today does not require background checks. It allows for the disciplinary boards to share information about discipline. But let's say that a therapist from one of these 10 states, goes on a weekend Bender in Vegas and ends up in the Clark County Jail. That information does not necessarily get shared with either licensing states because why, but then also doesn't get shared with any of the other practicing privileged states. It's not something that would mess like up. Overall therapists don't get arrested. Katie Vernoy 22:22 Yeah, just don't Curt Widhalm 22:23 Yes. But especially don't get arrested in your practicing states, because you're practicing states have with their own State Department of Justice's, like, California BBS. Like if somebody gets arrested, and they're licensed California, they get a little like, ping the next morning of like, hey, one of your licensees was arrested. But if you're, if you're gonna get arrested, don't get arrested, you know, being outside of your jurisdiction, at least, there's some opportunities to fall through the cracks there. And the... Katie Vernoy 22:55 Are you telling people to how to avoid getting in trouble? Curt Widhalm 22:58 This is not legal advice. And legal advice, once again, is don't get arrested. But what the FBI's database does, is allows for this information to be pinged in each time that somebody goes through a background check. The FBI is saying that this does not actually empower any of the states to know information if somebody was to have a an offense against them that wasn't caught or happened after their own background check to get a license in their own state. Katie Vernoy 23:31 Well, I'm just even thinking for myself, I have not been arrested. I don't have anything that I have to worry about. But yeah, I haven't had a background check for 15 years? So I could be doing all kinds of stuff and get practicing privileges elsewhere - is what you're telling me? Curt Widhalm 23:48 Yes. And so this very much goes against, according to the FBI, any sort of patient protection that any of these licensing boards are put into place in the first place to protect consumers. Katie Vernoy 24:03 Well, I haven't think taking this further the whole consumer protection angle, and I think I'm gonna give you credit, you mentioned this before we started recording. But as a consumer, I have no place to check if you actually do have practicing privileges in my state, or if there's any problems. I mean, I guess I could look at your licensing state if I knew how to do that, knew where to do it, and can see if there's any any dings on your license, but, but it really takes some of the stuff out of the consumers hand being able to identify, you know, anything about the person that they're working with. Curt Widhalm 24:41 And I imagine that these are things that are going to need to be addressed over the next few years as having some way of centrally notifying each other's state licensures or any of that kind of stuff. And I'm sure that there's somebody out there saying, But Curt this hasn't been a problem with PSYPACT yet. And the answer that I have back in response to you is "that we know of, and it will likely happen." Katie Vernoy 25:13 Well, I think it's something where there's, and this was something that I hadn't thought about. But in a conversation that we had, I think it's something where, with psychologists, the, as far as I know, the licensing exams, their expectations are pretty constant across the United States. And so if somebody messes up in the state that they're licensed in, that's going to have a big impact, because it is the same pretty far across and I, this doesn't address the federal background checks. But I think it does address this kind of idea of all the complexity and and consumers having an issue because what they're expecting from their clinician is not what they get, because their clinician practices way differently than anybody in their state, for example, but MFTs don't have that. I mean, there's that there's a national association, but all 50 states basically have different expectations. Counselors, I think, are a little bit more streamlined and so that's probably why they're moving forward. Social workers are very streamlined, and I'm sure they're going to probably get, you know, glide through this. But I think it's something where that feels solvable, you know, getting a getting some way that there's this the background checks and that kind of stuff, if you're if you're part of this compact, if you choose to get practicing privileges, there's a federal body that you then have to get a background check. And then that, you know, somebody at the federal level is running it versus each state having to do it. You know, I think there's some legislation that could probably really help this. But that seems really expensive. And I'm wondering, you know, there's part of me, that's like do therapists care? Do to consumers care? I mean, like, we're worried about this regulation and there's part of me, and there's a whole podcast devoted to this Very Bad Therapy. But there's, there's bad clinicians that are not going to have oversight. But then there's also all of these clients, who don't have access to therapists who accept them as who they are. And so having some of these things come into place, like to me, it seems like it could be good. So I'm getting all over the place. So bring us back to something that's that's helpful. But I think there's, there's this element of it feels solvable. I just don't know the timeline, or how much money, but... Curt Widhalm 27:36 That those two points are the problems that I foresee with this, that it's none of these things that I'm bringing up are unsolvable. Maybe the BetterHelp thing. But... Katie Vernoy 27:52 That's a different problem. It's separate from this problem to solve. Curt Widhalm 27:55 Right. But it's probably going to be a lot more costs that are passed on to the providers than anybody sees. The buzz that I'm initially hearing from people on this is very much like you that most people are taking this as, oh, I can just kind of see my clients wherever they travel, as long as they're in one of these 10 states. Katie Vernoy 28:19 Yeah. Curt Widhalm 28:19 And that is not true. And each one of these states is going to be additional costs. And you know, the background checks thing is, all right, you still go down to your local fingerprinting place, you do your live scan, you're just having it reported to a different state board and the FBI each time. And those things add up, you know, 50 bucks at a time adds up. Yeah, times that by 10 states, times it by the application fees, because part of the legislation that was written for all of these states is basically written by the same people. And it's, you know, quote, unquote, not actually a direct quote here, but not going to have anything more than administrative costs passed on to clinicians. There's a lot of administration costs in this that any of the licensing boards are more or less operating at a break even point that adding on a bunch of new staff to process out of state therapists and to verify things. Those are going to be cost that add up. Are they going to be cheaper than getting a license and meeting all the requirements in these other states? Absolutely. But these are costs that are going to add up for people. This is not going to be a free for all that all of these state licensing boards are going to allow here. Katie Vernoy 29:40 Yeah, I think that's the thing that's that's hard because there's a lot of elements to this, that says that like this is this, this makes everything smooth and easy. This really provides additional access and the more we've talked together about it when we've talked to other folks about it, it just I'm hearing that there is so much complexity to how this operates, that it may not happen for all states, because you know, states that have enough clinician, states that have a higher cost of living, they may not feel the need to, to add to their costs, or their clinician base. And so they're not going to take it on. But but when I look at, you know, really what we're talking about, it's, it's trying to put a bandaid on this problem. And hopefully, it's it's something that there's actually real federal legislation that can help to increase the infrastructure in places that need more clinicians, help to, to create systems that actually address some of these concerns that you're bringing up. But that would require tax dollars, versus clinicians paying application fees, and all those things. I mean, I heard, I think that's the thing I heard was like, millions of dollars to get this setup, you know, I mean, like, that's, I guess, if you've got a lot of clinicians, that's a cross of a lot of clinicians, you know, if they are savvy clinicians, those fees are then incorporated into the fees they charge, which then for private pay clinicians anyway means that they're charging more. Insurance panels aren't going to pay you more just because you've got some extra that's under your belt. And so it's something where the cost thing hasn't been figured out, nor has the infrastructure both on the client side, but also on this regulatory side, it feels like there's just so much to figure out here. Curt Widhalm 31:35 And that's something that I haven't even seen how insurance is going to work across state lines that I willingly admit that I don't know the inner workings of a lot of the insurance process, but knowing that, all right, yeah, it's great that you can see a client to timezones away. But does their insurance allow it? And this is another factor that's going to be in it. And, you know, we can talk all day long, and I'm already pre addressing some of the criticisms of this episode from people. We don't yet have universal health care. Don't even bring that up, like... Katie Vernoy 32:14 Sure. Curt Widhalm 32:15 Don't make arguments about systems that we don't have. These are problems that need to be addressed in the meantime. And yeah, I know that some people are going to say that this is the first step towards national licensure and this kind of stuff. OK or maybe... Katie Vernoy 32:32 It may, it may actually delay it, it may delay it, because it's a band aid where people can go practice in other states. So why would I get a national license, if I can practice in a couple other states and not worry about taking another task, getting another background check, blah, blah, blah. I before we before we finish up, because I think there's probably going to be responses that then lead to additional episodes on this topic. But I think that just to kind of maybe poke the beast here a little bit. But with the with the insurance stuff, I think we're already seeing what insurance companies are going to do. And that is contract with these large tech companies that have clinicians across all the states pay them more so clinicians can get more, but it means that individual practitioners almost de facto have to be private pay, because they're going to get worse insurance rates, and they're not going to be able to really compete, certainly not in advertising dollars, or whatever. And we have a whole episode on this, but they're not able to compete with a gigantic quote unquote, tech solutions and or group practices. And so I think, I think it's something where there is a lot to consider here. I think there's going to be a lot of conversations that we want to have related to the disruptors, the tech disruptors in the space, who are the good ones, who are the ones that are challenging, and potentially hurting our profession? How do we, you know, step into this and, and take ownership of this space because, you know, there is so much and and potentially these these compacts allow for us to compete at this level. Or it may make it harder and I guess that's to be seen, I really think. Curt Widhalm 34:14 Giving over the power, giving over the insurance contracts to publicly traded corporations means decisions get made quarter by quarter based on profits. And that is not what the healthcare system should be. We're kind of in a space where some people are able to compete against that but so many more episodes to be done on this.
