Seth Rogen's Take on Networking (Issue #383)

Invincible Career - Claim your power and regain your freedom

A few days ago, I tweeted a quote from Seth Rogen using something he said on the podcast “Dead Eyes.” It’s produced and hosted by Connor Ratliff and explores the time Tom Hanks fired him from the 2001 HBO mini-series, Band of Brothers. It’s pretty good. You should check it out. I heard Seth talking about auditions and it made me think of the frustration people feel after dozens of failed job interviews. Here’s my tweet. Note the part where he said, “or knew the person who wrote it.”I’m a fan of Seth’s work as a director, producer, and actor. I’ve enjoyed many of his movies, and his laugh always makes me laugh whenever I hear it. So, I was surprised and delighted when he actually took the time to respond. Now, I didn’t actually say that he used “networking” to land his roles, but I guess it was implied. It became quite the polarizing discussion on Twitter! Some people supported me and my comment about networking in their follow-up tweets. “I’d call that luck… 🤷🏽‍♂️💯 And networking… You forged relationships with dear friends who happen to all be famous af. That’s not reality for anyone. That’s pretty blessed and lucky imo.”“That's networking Seth, you created the network”“Hey Seth that’s networking”“I’m pretty sure you just described networking.”“F*%$ man, who am I to say but I think that might be networking”“AKA “Networking”. Your awesome Dude, love all your work.”“Social networking. No crime in it. Everyone succeeds.”“So, networking…”“I feel like that’s definitely networking, lol.”“Soooooo… Networking 😂 🤣”“Yep, that’s what he said….Networking 😂”“Just btw Seth, creating relationships with other people in your industry is literally called networking 😂” (to which Seth replied, “I don’t think so.”)Other people were more than happy to tell me how stupid I am. You have to grow a thick skin if you want engagement on Twitter. 🤣“Yeah, LARRY”“Seth said, ‘dont career-speak me into your shiz dude. you dont know me.’ King.”"‘networking’ just feels so shallow. I get it, but I like your way better, Seth.”“you tell em 👏”“tear that a$$ up boo”and a few more that I don’t think I should share… 🤣Note: if you want to increase your engagement on Twitter, tweet a polarizing point of view. Bonus points if you can get a celebrity to respond. Invincible Career® is a reader-supported publication.

People obviously have very different definitions of networking. They're envisioning very different things. Unfortunately, many people have a negative view of networking. They picture the typical cocktail parties and industry events. They also have nasty things to say about people who network. “When most people think of networking, they automatically have a vision in their head of cocktail parties and conventions. My approach to networking is based on a transformation process and not a transactional game.”— Porter Gale, author of Your Network Is Your Net Worth: Unlock the Hidden Power of Connections for Wealth, Success, and Happiness in the Digital Age (my affiliate link)Other people accept networking as part of their professional life. They know that it’s a useful way to meet new people in your industry, build new relationships, and find people you may enjoy working with later. While I never had much luck with traditional networking events (e.g., industry mixers), I have met some wonderful people through more strategic networking activities. I have more success when I give a talk at an event, meet people for 1-on-1 conversations (e.g., Zoom coffee chats), or get introduced by a mutual friend. Better approaches than shallow networking events include:Creating your own network (what Seth has done). Building relationships and inviting people into your network. Tapping into your network for advice. Leveraging your network for finding opportunities. Feeding opportunities back into your network. Forging new connections between people in your network (i.e., you know them, but they don't know each other). Our networks increasingly overlapI think we've all experienced a shift in our personal and professional lives over the past few years. Our attempt to maintain work-life separation and work-life balance has evolved into a work-life blend. Perhaps I notice this more as a solopreneur, but my social circle and professional circle are overlapping more lately. I know that some of this is because of the pandemic and how much my social life and working life involve a lot of online chats and Zoom meetings. Sure, we do still have purely social friendships and purely professional relationships. But there is an overlapping area with a hybrid network that lives in both worlds. We refer friends for jobs. We introduce professional friends and acquaintances who we think would benefit from meeting each other. We connect people who can help each other. We sometimes form working partnerships with old friends and talented people from previous jobs. Networking doesn’t just happen at those massive industry events or professional cocktail parties. That’s a very limiting view of the activity. Networking occurs whenever a friend tells you they’re hiring for a new role in their company and you say, “Hey, I know someone who might be a good fit.” It occurs whenever you’re talking with a friend who is struggling with an issue and you say, “You should meet my friend. She has a service that addresses that problem.” Seth gets value out of his networkI also think what Seth was trying to say is that his personal network was a side effect of great working relationships and friendships with talented people. He wasn't intentionally trying to "network" first (i.e., the verb), and perhaps he does hate the act of “networking.”Where I went wrong with my tweet — which resulted in such a negative visceral reaction from many — is my use of the word “networking” instead of talking about social and professional “networks.” I doubt that so many people would have disagreed with my tweet had I worded it this way:“Sooo… a successful actor like Seth Rogen hardly ever landed a role from auditioning, yet people expect to land a great job without tapping into their network.”I would hope Seth wouldn’t deny that the power of his network did indeed help him during the earlier years of his career. Later, in the same podcast episode, Adam McKay (director of “Anchorman”) shared a story about Judd Apatow: "Judd had done Freaks and Geeks with Seth and came to me and was like, ‘Hey, do you mind if we give this guy a line? Uh, he's really funny. I think he's really talented.’ And that was it. We put him in, and... He had like, the tiniest moment, but he did that really funny countdown, with the pinky move. So even in that tiny little moment, he made it work. But yeah, that was it. It was Judd. Judd was like, ‘Please cast this guy.’ And it was like, ‘Okay!’ And he was great.”Investopedia has this definition of networking:”Networking is the exchange of information and ideas among people with a common profession or special interest, usually in an informal social setting. Networking often begins with a single point of common ground. Professionals use networking to expand their circles of acquaintances, find out about job opportunities in their fields, and increase their awareness of news and trends in their fields or the greater world.”Well, Judd telling Adam that Seth was really funny and talented and that they should cast him was definitely an exchange of useful information. Call me crazy, but it’s an example of powerful networking. Seth wasn’t the producer or director of “Anchorman.” He didn’t create that role for himself. Judd was connected to both Seth and Adam (you might say they were networked together 😉) and he’s the one that made it happen. Networking the right wayI found this response amusing. Apparently, Emily doesn’t want to work with you if you use the word “networking.”What would you prefer to call those events when you socialize with other professionals? I don't know about you, but I can find better uses for my time than attending some professional event and trying to think of it as pure fun or socializing. It is indeed a hybrid event. I guess I have more enjoyable ways to have real fun. You know, like hanging out with friends and family. I don't refer to my time socializing with friends and family as "networking." But, if I am forced to attend some professional event (e.g., a conference after-party), yes, that's "networking." Perhaps it isn't the smarmy, shallow, schmoozing networking that this person is used to experiencing. But, for me, it is the lighter, more enjoyable, and more authentic professional networking that I can find somewhat enjoyable. It's still not my first choice for connecting with people. I'd prefer a more intimate dinner with a few people from an event. But, I can make it more tolerable with the tips I've provided before in this article. I'm also going to call BS on the suggestion that going to professional social events should be all about fun and friendships. Are you trying to tell me that every person you have a positive working relationship with is also a dear friend that you invite to your inner circle of friends, Thanksgiving dinners, and your most intimate gatherings? I don’t buy it. Mature adults realize and accept that we have different levels of intimacy, relationships, and friendships. We can respect and admire people without being "friends." We can be friendly with people in a professional relationship without assuming that we're best buddies. Of course, real personal friendships can and do occur with work colleagues. No one denies that. Some working relationships transform into personal friendships. But not all work relationships are equivalent to friendships. The process of building and maintaining professional relationships is different from nurturing personal friendships. They are not the same. It's foolish to get on your high horse and proclaim that they should be the same.Whether people like it or not, a powerful network will help you get ahead in your career. Very few people are born into families that immediately give them access to a network that will help them succeed in life (e.g., Kennedy, Windsor, House of Saud, Rockefeller, Ambani, Rothschild). Most of us will need to build and nurture our own networks and, yes, the actions we take to do so will fall under the umbrella of networking. Thank you for reading Invincible Career®.

Changes to the charitable sector? Indeed. You've probably felt those changes over the last few years—nothing like a pandemic to shake things up. You might have some anecdotes or stories of how things have changed, but today we're diving into some of the research.In this episode, I'm talking with Jacob O' Connor, Senior Vice President of Charity Engagement at Canada Helps, to discuss The Giving Report 2022 which highlights insights and generational giving trends facing Canada's charitable sector that are taking place as charities are still struggling with demands and challenges from the ongoing pandemic, and now significant challenges brought about by historic inflation rates. Don't worry if you're not in Canada - guaranteed you will benefit from understanding these trends (because they are likely true where you are too). Key findings:Donors care about causes over affinity to specific organizations. The younger generation has a greater affinity for cause-based donations and support as opposed to giving to specific organizations. It's important for nonprofits to know how they position themselves as contributors to these causes. This is a great opportunity for small organizations and underscores the importance of stewardship.Digital is here to stay. CanadaHelps saw a 119% increase year over year in giving in year one of the pandemic. Moreover, The Giving Report 2022 highlighted that younger generations find new and strategic ways to give online such as cryptocurrencies and securities. Jacob's Key Insights on Giving Trends 2022The giving gap: Donors aged 55+  are actually giving twice the amount of the 25 to 54 age group. This gap is growing and as a sector, we need to think about where we will be when this generation no longer has the capacity to give?Cause-based donations: The way you tell your stories and engage with fundamental causes or movements, such as social justice and environmental issues,  will be very important to the next generation of donors. It's important to know where your organization stands and how are you helping specific causes?Leveraging current trends and reports:  Further than just education providing insights, this report serves as a call to action that Canadians need to step up and engage with the sector and support the sector that gives us so much.Favourite Quotes from Today's EpisodePost your favourite quote on social media to share with us!“ Canadian charities have experienced rises in demand throughout the pandemic. In our panel, we saw that 11% of Canadians are accessing charitable services for their basic needs. This number,  if the effects of the inflation pandemic don't change, expects to go up to 26%, which is staggering. Charities are already struggling to meet the demands and then the effects of inflation. We need to do more, we need Canadians to step up.”“We want to amplify that the sector needs support.

Nick talks about that most crucial element of business ownership - the exit - and most notably how to ensure that you can maximise this vital wealth event, and achieve an exit that provides freedom and security. KEY TAKEAWAYS Life-changing exits are not necessarily about just money. They are about the freedom it endows you with, and what it allows you to afterwards. Business owners generally have 75-80 percent of their net worth tied up in their business. This means that their business exit is the single biggest transaction or wealth event of their lives. Leveraging yourself out of the business is crucial. The business must be able to run separately from you. This is vital for scale. You must start with your endgame in mind, using an endgame assessment. Gain a valuation of the business as it stands presently, then work out how much you want to sell for in the future. BEST MOMENTS  'For me, that's the pinnacle of what we do' 'If I can provide life-changing exits for them, then they can make life-changing impact on others' 'Only twenty percent of all businesses in the world will actually sell' 'A lot of businesses don't realise that scale matters' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Looking to invest in a new lucrative opportunity? Whitney Elkins-Hutten is here to talk about how car washes can be a  low-maintenance, high-yield investment. She discusses the different types of car washes, their potential profits, and how to scale this type of asset. This is a niche investment that is worth considering for those with a real estate background and an interest in commercial properties. Whitney is the Director of Investor Education at Passiveinvesting.com. She is a real estate maven who, after purchasing her first rental in 2002, and hitting a home run, then nearly losing it all on her second deal, took control and figured out how to invest in real estate the right way. She realized that success must leave clues. So, she studied and replicated the very personal finance and wealth creation strategies the wealthy use to create financial freedom. Today, Whitney is a partner in $700M+ of real estate —including over 5000+ residential units (MF, MHP, SFR, and assisted living) and more than 1400+ self-storage units across 7 states—and experience flipping over $3.0M in residential real estate.   [00:01 - 04:16] Buying the Business and the Real Estate Listen to our previous conversation with Whitney!

Check it out below:   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  00:00 It's worthwhile to note that there's other groups that are starting to kind of come up with carwashes. And what makes this really unique, what we're doing here at passiveinvesting.com, is that we're actually buying the business and the underlying real estate. And I think an investor has to be really careful about that. Because if you just buy the business and you don't have real estate, you're not controlling the actual full potential of the asset.   Intro  00:22 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  00:34 Whitney Elkins-Hutten is the Director of Investor Education at passiveinvesting.com and Partner at $700 million in real estate including over 5000 residential units, and more than 1400, and it cut off there for some reason that truncated your bio here, Whitney, I'm butchering it. 1400 what? Self-storage units. Fantastic. And you know what we're gonna talk about none of those things today, you've come on the show before, I don't know what maybe four, six months ago, I don't have the episode right in front of me, which was a great time just chatting about really your experience in real estate up until that point in time. So if you want to look back in the show, you can find Whitney's previous interview. But the thing we're going to talk about today, and really highlight and focus on is a really nuanced and niche investment you guys have taken on. Can you tell us about it, Whitney?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  01:17 Well, yeah, I guess I actually, now you've pointed out to me, I need to update my bio, because now we've started partnering on carwashes. And so right, who would have thunk it? We're so proud to bring on this investment class for investors, a lot of people you know, don't think of car washes as their first, you know, piece of real estate they might invest in. The unique thing about car washes is that you can actually invest in the business and the real estate at the same time and achieve a nice yield, especially in this like cap rate compressed environment.   Sam Wilson  01:48 Tell me the nuances of the car wash. Is there, I mean, when I think of a car wash, I think of the ones where you like you know, you get in, you put it in neutral. And that drags you through and you come out the other side. And then I think of the ones where you know, they have the big signs like don't wash all the mud off your ATVs here in our carwash where you pull in and spray it off with a little wand and you put your quarters in the slot. Which one are you buying? Are you buying both? Give us the breakdown.   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  02:12 Yeah, so there's really three different types of car washes, and you've hit on two. So the coin-operated carwash or the self serve-type of car washes. Number one, I think a lot of us might have grown up with that, where you pull a car into a bay, stick of quarters and you've got the brush and you know, pumps up, then you've got your water one, you know, your child is like chasing around the bay trying to get you wet, right, then you've got full-service carwashes think of these more of the type of single bay, maybe double bass that are attached to like a gas station, or something like that. Again, not very scalable model, but they definitely can be a little, you know, some moneymakers, we're actually investing in what we call a car express carwash. So these are the, think of the ones like you were talking about the long bay, where you have the long tunnel. And you know, you pull up your car, somebody grabs it from you, they like backing it out, and then they flip it around the back, they loaded in the bay. We're not even doing that. I mean, this is all self-serve. And you know, you can, you know, back in my car, and then you can put it in the bay, and it's driven by how long that tunnel is, and how quickly can you move the cars through and still do a great job for the customer. Right? You can whip a car through an express tunnel. But if you're not doing a great job of getting that car clean, guess what? Customers not coming back. So there's a fine balance here. You know, really the express tunnel carwash is or, you know, have the, you know the most potential for profit, because there's really a lot of low maintenance to them, and very low payroll burden on these types of assets. And there's even the opportunity to take some of these other type of car washes, the self-serve carwash and the full-service car washes, and convert them into more of an express carwash. But, you know, it's worthwhile to note that there's other groups that are starting to kind of come up with carwashes. And what makes us really unique, what we're doing here at passiveinvesting.com is that we're actually buying the business and the underlying real estate. And I think an investor has to be really careful about that. Because if you just buy the business and you don't have the real estate, you're not controlling the actual full potential of asset.   Sam Wilson  04:16 Yeah, and that was going to be one of my next questions for you on this. But before we get to really the nuance of splitting of the business and the land that goes with it, let's talk a little bit about branding. And is there a national chain that you guys are branding under? Are you starting your own brand? Is there, what's the word I'm looking for, like a franchise that you guys are working through? What is that?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  04:39 You know, this is really a space that's ripe for disruption. If you think about it, the carwash space, you know, it's estimated to be I think, you know, the number is like $27.8 billion of revenue a year and it's growing just shy of 4% annually, and a large majority of that growth is actually occurring in the express car wash business. Now, if you depending on where you live you might have seen like brands like Zippos, or Mister Car Wash, but majority of these types of car washes are still owned by mom and pop operators. And why is that? Well, if you think about it, the large players, institutional players aren't getting into the space, because they can't make it passive. There's not a management company that can take on this type of asset. So what we're doing that's very unique is that we're actually solving that problem by building our own vertical management company within the business. So what that's going to allow us to do is actually, you know, create tons of operational efficiencies for the business as well as for investors but be able to scale the business to about 100 to 150 locations, and then wrap this all up together for a nice exit.   Sam Wilson  05:47 That is cool. I like that. And then would you guys retain the management company, when you and then just do third party means that part of the plan?    Whitney Elkins-Hutten  05:56 Anything is possible at this point in time. So we are, you know, we're definitely in the build phase, the growth phase of this portfolio. So you know, really focused on operationalize, how many operational efficiencies, can we create, you know, on the labor front, just even like thinking about the chemical front? How do we standardize training across all the locations? How do we standardize the service across all the locations? And, you know, once we kind of have that nailed down, then we'll be able to really fully assess what we do the management company.   Sam Wilson  06:29 Yeah, no, that's really interesting. How are you finding opportunity in this space?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  06:33 Well, that has led to our acquisitions team. But again, remember, a majority of these locations are actually mom and pop locations. So they've might have bought into like a small franchise or tried to, you know, take over a property on their own, you know, they struggled, you know, a lot of times what we're finding is these locations that we're buying, they're struggling with the actual optimization of the business. One, they're trying to run the business themselves, and never hired themselves out of the business. They actually did bring on a team, they don't have standardization and training. And then even if they achieve that, they're relying on their distributors to help them optimize the actual tunnel, and the chemicals within the tunnel. Now, what's wrong with relying on a vendor to do that? The vendor, you got a conflict of interest going on there. So you know, again, when we're building out this management company, we're really trying to, we're still gonna work very, very closely with our vendors, to you know, work on pricing and optimization, but we actually, as a management company, get to control end and end product of that tunnel.   Sam Wilson  07:36 That makes a heck of a lot of sense. Let's talk then about your finding your see your funding opportunity. Presently run already mom and pop owned car washes. Have you guys, are you considering building ground up?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  07:50 Again, you know, right now, there's still just enough opportunity in the acquisition space for us to build a large part of the portfolio scale it up very quickly in this arena, we've already brought on nine this year. So yeah, it's there. They're there, right. They're already built-in primo locations. So without having to take on that build risk   Sam Wilson  08:10 that valuing needs, Is this, I mean, obviously a bunch of that operating income, but there's got to be a way to underwrite and say, hey, it's here, we can do X, Y, and Z to make it worth that. How do you do that?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  08:22 Right, yeah, so typically, what we're doing with a multifamily unit, self-storage, you know, mobile home parks, you're underwriting net operating income. When you have a business you're underwriting EBITDA, Earnings Before Interest Depreciation, Taxes, and Insurance and Amortization. So we are actually, and I'm sorry, you know, amortization not insurance piece that's actually an under a line item in the expenses. So when you take the EBITDA, essentially your profit, your gross profit, you know, we're paying a multiple on top of that and so we're looking for car washes, probably valuing the car wash it like eight maybe 10% EBITDA. But it goes even a little bit deeper than that because we're looking to be in at 51 to 53% of the expected gross income on the property even though we're putting these guys into like, you know, 2,3,7 portfolios, small portfolios together, we have underwriting each property to stand on its own. That really just helps mitigate more risk for the investor, right? Because you know, our intentions is to do a large exit, potentially IPO roll up to REIT you know, those are a couple of different you know, exits there but things just totally you know, business totally tanks and we can't figure it out which just the wealth of knowledge we have in our team, I don't see that happening. Each carwash can stand on its own and a very attractive return number.   Sam Wilson  09:45 Right.I like that. And that is interesting. Let's talk then about this splitting the business and the land or maybe there's, you know, two things going on. There's a real estate play and then there's the business play. When you guys buy these are you holding title to the business and of the land all in one, or is it that the business then leases the real estate back from, I mean, how are you guys doing that? I guess if I can get the words out of my mouth.   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  10:12 That's an amazing question. And I really want to dig in further on that. Because I, you know, on where I'm at with working in with the investor, I don't know that and I haven't been asked that yet. But that's an amazing question. But I can tell you, what I can tell you is that we actually have both within the portfolio. Right? So you know, I would imagine it's all wrapped up into the same LLC.    Sam Wilson  10:34 That's interesting. Yeah. Because I would have thought and again, I know, this is pure conjecture on both of our parts, not like neither of us have the solid answer. Because this is one of the businesses, you know, that I'm involved in is the laundry business. And in that, we've got both the actually, I don't have it right now, we are just on a lease for the one we own, but looking to build, the next few we do, we're going to be new builds, and I go, Gosh, when I do that, I'm gonna split them. One company is going to own the land and lease it back from the company that owns the actual business, because then someday, if I want to sell off the business, I may still retain rights to the land and just be a landlord, I wouldn't have that option. I didn't know how you guys were doing that. So and then, of course, then you have to profitable companies and they have their own split on the whole deal to a different equation altogether. But then I guess the last question for you, your underwriting these is up to take a stand on their own, but it sounds like you're also taking them down inside of a fund. Is that right?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  11:23 We're doing mini portfolios, you know, as we can group acquisitions together, you know, our first acquisition pool was two units or next acquisition pool was seven units. So we're looking to group those together. And it operates like a fund in a few different ways in that you get diversification, multiple assets with one investment. So if you're investing in, say, you know, $200,000, it's split over two assets or seven assets, you know, so there's that. The cool thing, rather than doing this fund is that it's not blind. So you actually get to see the assets at the beginning, rather than sometimes when you a lot of times when you invest in fund, if you're coming in early. You're not able to see the actual assets that are being required, you're having to invest on a hypothesis that the operator is making, you know, we choose not to do that with this type of acquisition. And lastly, you know, because of that, because the investor can actually see the assets, you know, inquire about individual metrics on each asset, if they choose to, there's more of an immediacy to invest. I know for me, this is getting down to investor behavior. I know for me, like when I'm investing my own dollars, I might be really excited by that investor bonus at the beginning for a blind fund. But you know, I'm very conservative, and I want to all let the fun acquire like a few assets before I actually go into invest. That's just me.    Sam Wilson  12:41 Love it. Yeah, that's sage and hard-earned advice coming right there. Tell me about pricing. Like, what's a typical range of a cost per express tunnel carwash? Is it like 5 million bucks? Is it 10 million is at one, I have no idea. Where are you finding the range of pricing is for these?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  13:00 It depends on the location. So you know, the land, since we're acquiring the land, the land is also can be a large factor in the pricing. So you've got the actual, you know, again, what we talked about eight to 10x gross. And then we also have like the price in the land. So our first acquisition, you know, that one is since close, you know, that one was an $8 million acquisition. So that two of them, yep. Yeah. As we grow the NOI, just think about that, you know, we're looking to optimize the NOI on that property and, you know, exit at a 10x EBITDA. Know, when we go for an IPO. So there's just a, you know, a nice ability to create some exponential growth for investors.   Sam Wilson  13:40 Yeah, absolutely. When you look at businesses like this, they typically have a higher cash on cash, return, maybe than, say, a multifamily project or even a self-storage, for that matter. I mean, what and again, I know, you probably can't say exactly what it is on the air, but like, what's, what's an expected range? You guys are looking at, you would say, hey, if it falls in this range, it looks good for us.   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  14:02 Our first couple of acquisitions, first 8 acquisitions, you know, pulled together, you know, cash on cash, you know, first year might be like, again, we always aren't underwritten very conservatively, you know, because we're, you know, having to optimize the asset, first year might be somewhere between four and a half to 8% cash on cash, as we stabilize all the units together, and then we're ramping up as quickly as we can to 8%, 9%, 10%. We are looking to hit 15% cash on cash by the end of five years.   Sam Wilson  14:32 Got it. Okay. Okay. Cool. That is absolutely. You know, fascinating last question for you on this, leverage. What sort of debts are available for this?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten 14:42 Yeah, so we're using private lending, we're looking very attractive. 60% loan to value are, you know, on the last acquisition that we did, I'm just looking at the number. We did a 4.15% interest rate fixed for five years with a 20 year amortization. So it's very competitive private business funding.   Sam Wilson  15:02 No, that makes all the difference in the world. That's a lot. Those are a lot better terms that I would have thought on the private lending side, so that's absolutely awesome. Whitney, thank you for taking the time to break down the carwash base, why do you guys see opportunity there? And then how you're acquiring assets and then running them. I think it's brilliant. Is there any question I should have asked or any other last piece of information that you'd like to share?   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  15:23 Well, I think you know, one thing you know, as an investor, when you're looking to invest in a project like this, that definitely has a value add component, what is the value add that you can create on a carwash? So, you know, we've talked about, you know, the actual tunnel, and a lot of everything occurs within that tunnel, and you know, can you optimize the chemicals in the tunnel, some of the chemicals on a carwash are extremely expensive, but mom and pop operators might actually put that chemical on the car, every single time that comes through, we can actually optimize for that based on the membership and only apply it like one every four times that the car comes through. So we have a lot of optimization with the chemicals in the tunnel, we have an optimization with the payroll, it can be run with, you know, maybe four to six full-time employees, you know, annually to very low overhead and cost that way. And there's just a wealth of things that we can do, you know, with the vacuum housings, you know, perks that we can add subscription packages to the property or to the business. And so, you know, I know one thing that investors ask me, and they're like, What happens if somebody comes every single day to wash their car, you're like, Okay, if the subscription package the low switching costs $35 a month, that average carwash, a person, washing a car uses 80 cents of water and chemicals on the car, we've got a nice healthy margin there. So they would literally have to wash their car, probably twice a day for the full month, we started losing money on that subscription agreement.   Sam Wilson  16:51 And that's a lot of commitment for somebody to wash their car twice. Now, I'll be honest, I used to live in Indianapolis and on snow days. Man, I love my carwash subscription, because you get all that black, gray, brown, muddy saltwater. Man, I go through four or five times in a day, because I'm on the road all day long. But of course, that was only you know, three or four days of the year. So they still got their money for me.   Whitney Elkins-Hutten  17:15 Well, and you brought you tapped on a really kind of a great point here. And that is, you know, we're talking a very interesting time in our economy. Right. So you know, a lot of people, a lot of investors are going what happens in a recession? How recession resilient are these assets? And so we've talked about the optimization, we've talked about the subscription packages, but you know, investors asked me and they're like, well, wouldn't somebody just cancel their subscription? First of all, you know, science or statistics, or a tell us when somebody actually establishes the behavior of washing their car, they don't break it, right. And especially at $35 a month, that's a pretty low-hanging fruit compared to other expenses. I love it. But when you have a recession environment, right, and last point here, is people actually take better care of their cars because they don't have to repair the car, right? Just like what you're talking about. We live in Colorado, you've got that mag chloride like I don't want to have to like deal with the pain here in a couple of years. I'm gonna spend a couple of bucks and wash my car.   Sam Wilson  18:12 You got it. I love it, Whitney. I know we're out of time. Thank you for coming on the show today and breaking this down.

Then those themes can tell us where to go or where to stay away from.”   “My best and most creative ideas have come from the very early hours of the morning. I like to write when most people are asleep. I get most of my creation from the dark of the night. There is something beautiful about the night time and the early morning.”    “The game of basketball, for instance, there are individual players who are great, but it doesn't matter how great they are, they still need a coach. And what the coach does is see the best within them and harness the skills.”       ABOUT THE GUEST   Babs is an experienced strategist and passionate business leader with keen insights into the development and implementation of high impact business transformations, and marketing & brand development initiatives.

Reporter Feven Gerezgiher takes a look at findings from the U.S. Department of the Interior with regards to the department's investigative report on the Federal Indian boarding school system, and speaks with one of its research partners about what this means for Indian Country.---Transcript:This is Minnesota Native News. I'm Marie Rock.The U.S. Department of Interior recently released a long-awaited investigative report on the Federal Indian boarding school system. This week…reporter Feven Gerezgiher takes a look at its findings and speaks with one of its research partners about what this means for Indian Country.From 1819 to 1969, the United States funded 408 boarding schools for American Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Alaskan Native students.These schools were a means to culturally assimilate Indigenous people and to dispossess them of lands across what are now 37 states.This history is ever present in Indian Country, but for the first time, the U.S. government is acknowledging the harm done. This is U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland at a press conference on May 11th.“The federal policies that attempted to wipe out Native identity, language, and culture continue to manifest in the pain Tribal communities face today, including cycles of violence and abuse, disappearance of Indigenous people, premature deaths, poverty and loss of wealth, mental health disorders and substance abuse. Recognizing the impacts of the Federal Indian boarding school system cannot just be a historical reckoning. We must also chart a path forward to deal with these legacy issues.”Haaland () requested an investigation into the Federal Indian boarding school system last June following the discovery of a mass burial site at a former boarding school in Canada. The Department of Interior conducted a nine month investigation that culminated in a 106-page report released last week.The report identifies 53 marked and unmarked burial sites at different schools across the U.S. The department found records of at least 500 child deaths, and expects to find more as the investigation continues.Samuel Torres is Mexica Nahua and deputy chief executive officer for the Twin Cities-based National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition. In an interview last Thursday, he said this moment is a testament to the importance of Native leadership in government.It's a day of mixed emotions, really a long week of mixed emotions. We are, of course, grateful for the leadership of Secretary Deb Holland for producing this initiative. I think one of the reasons why it's been such a huge mixed bag of emotions is that we're recognizing and reflecting that just a short while ago, the federal government had made it very clear that they had no interest in diving deeper into these inquiries. Torres said years ago, the nonprofit had requested and been denied answers about federally operated boarding schools. It then began compiling research independently, later becoming a critical research partner to the report.It's pretty momentous that the Department of the Interior recognizes that students died in these institutions, that hundreds, potentially even thousands of children are in marked or unmarked graves. Being able to see that in the bounds of a federal document, I think is something that we have been hoping for, and knowing that it is something that we can consult, that we can look to as a foundational source, I think is a big deal for a lot of people.The report said the U.S. systematically tried to assimilate Indigenous children with such tactics like renaming them with English names, cutting their hair, preventing the use of their native languages, and requiring them to perform military drills.It acknowledged rules were often enforced through punishment - through solitary confinement, withholding of food, slapping, or cuffing of children.The report outlines eight recommendations for continuing the investigation and for a healing process. Torres said he is encouraged those recommendations will be heard.Leveraging the authority, the power, the resources of the government, while, I know for some folks that might seem somewhat symbolic. It is a big deal. It provides a lot of opportunity for folks to be recognized and to be able to build off of this moment and to continue to sustain the movement.In response to the report, Secretary Haaland announced a year-long tour across the U.S to hear stories from survivors of the federal Indian boarding school system.Representative Sharice Davids also introduced legislation to establish a truth and healing commission.For Minnesota Native News, I'm Feven Gerezgiher.

Today's episode, episode #277, is a little bit different. I have interviewed 276 different people, and over that span I've often contemplated and though, “You know who I would love to have on here? My dad.” He's one of the most interesting people I've ever been around, and I've had a front row seat to witness, to him questions, to observe, to notice. I was hesitant to have my dad on as a guest because I like to ask questions that other people don't necessarily ask. And certainly, I've had friends on the podcast, people I care deeply about, but I knew with my dad it would be extremely personal. I wanted to ask him questions that I don't always get to ask him. Even though there's space for us in our relationship to ask questions, we don't always sit for an hour and a half and learn with each other. We don't always sit and ask what's really on our mind and share in a vulnerable way, and we have a very healthy relationship. There was some fear for me in bringing my dad into this community, bringing my dad into my world, even though I've always been part of his. I've referenced my dad a ton in conversations with others. My dad is now 72 years old. I didn't want to wait any longer to ask him some questions I was really curious about and to share him. He's one of the most wonderful people I've ever been around. He's one of the most intentional performers I've ever been around. And so, I felt inspired, obligated, and excited to go deeper with him and to be willing to share a side to him that others don't know. We uncovered and talked about some things that we hadn't ever talked about. Most of us don't ask the questions that we want to ask to the people that are closest to us. For me, that was pretty jaw-dropping that there were parts of this conversation that we hadn't discussed in detail previously. For you, as you're listening to this conversation, I hope you take that away more than anything else. I hope this conversation inspires you. I hope it challenges you to sit down with the people that you love and just be really curious and listen without judgment. My dad, Bruce Levenson, became more well-known when he bought into the Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Thrashers. Before that, he was extremely successful in the business world. He co-founded a company called United Communications Group. They acquired a lot of companies along the way, including a company called Tech Target which ended up going public and is still a publicly traded company. There was a company called Gas Buddy they acquired at one point as well. My dad and his co-founder Ed are journalists. That's their trade, that's what they came into the business world doing. So, they really believed in creating exceptional content. They were a business-too-business newsletter, and they would sell their content to other companies. My dad also went to law school at night as he was working extremely hard. My dad does not mind working hard, he actually enjoys it. Philanthropically, he has been extremely active for as long as I can remember. He and my mom formed the Do Good Institute at the University of Maryland, which aims to educate and train the next generation of non-profit leaders and people in the social sector who are changing our world in really amazing ways. Hope you enjoy this unique episode. Here are some impactful quotes from my dad from the episode: “When you stop growing, you start dying. I have no interest in dying” (16:15). “I'd rather bet for myself than against myself” (16:45).“I'll keep walking fast for as long as I can” (16:50). “Always finding time for family, time to do things other than working, was always a priority” (18:10). “I don't ever remember coming home tired from work. I loved work” (22:15). “I love to build in so many different ways… and part of the love of that is being part of a team” (23:15). “I still take on too much” (25:15). “I added an element of intelligent impatience” (31:50). “I would hope they would describe me as someone who is stimulating to be at the table with” (33:30). “The partnerships that did work all had one thing in common: there was this courtship where mutual respect and trust was built, we didn't jump into it” (36:00). “When you're walking fast, sometimes you walk right past that communication” (38:50). “For me, it was always about being my own boss” (44:00). “Anybody who says money doesn't buy you happiness isn't spending their money wisely” (44:30). “Don't do it alone. I really believe in the power of partnerships” (45:15). “I want to set an example for my community” (46:05). “There's room for error if you're overcommunicating and being overly assertive” (50:00). “I care that if someone meets me in passing and googles me, they may read something about me that makes them think less of me” (55:00). “There were a lot of similarities between the sports business and my business” (1:06:30). “The glass is always 80% full for me” (1:11:45). “I'm not superman. I don't have answers for everything. Depression is something very real and very debilitating, you have to work really hard to work your way out of it” (1:15:55). “It's hard for me to call it a failure because I tried my hardest and controlled what I could control” (1:24:05). “I'm the luckiest guy in the world” (1:28:10).   Thank you so much to my dad for coming on the podcast!

When you hear the word "sales" does it make you want to run for the hills and never return?  A lot of people associate selling with an "icky" feeling. They don't want to come across as pushy, shiesty, or gross to their buyer.  Just like there's no one magic formula to selling (despite what anyone on the internet tells you), there's no right or WRONG way to sell except for in a way that feels inauthentic and misaligned for YOU.  The experience can be a present, connected, aligned conversation rather than just a chance for CONVERSION.   When you come from the place that feels true to your style and natural tendencies, the outcome is a lot brighter (whether they buy from you or choose someone else)!

Does it sometimes feel like the training you've been prescribed doesn't fit comfortably into your life? Does your training volume have you feeling like a zombie rather than a finely tuned athlete? Did your coach still schedule a bike workout even though you made clear notes that you had a work trip with no access to cycling? Do you struggle to understand the big picture of your training? Does your coach keep pushing for commitment and focus even though you're already stretched too thin? If so, you are experiencing some of the biggest mistakes coaches make when working with the time-starved athlete. The challenge of every time-starved athlete is finding a balance between the demands of life's competing non-negotiable priorities, and the pursuit of self-improvement, or peak performance, in sport or fitness. Whether you're a triathlete, runner, cyclist, parent, or CEO, each role comes with its own unique challenges, making it difficult to stay on course with a training program designed to maximize performance outside the context of your life.  While plenty of coaches are skilled at building training programs anchored in tried and true methodology geared towards high-performance athletes, the question is, do the same approaches and methodologies fit when someone is incredibly time-starved? Today, Matt takes a closer look at the relationship between the coach and the time-starved athlete to identify the coaching mistakes that often lead to underperformance or an ineffective coaching relationship, along with the keys to fostering a healthy coaching relationship in the pursuit of balance and success in sport and life.  You'll learn: Critical Benefits from Leveraging a Successful Coaching Relationship (16:19) “It's beyond sporting results. The other thing a coach should be able to do, particularly for a time-starved athlete is, through their expertise and experience, help you improve your profile in health, your work performance, and how you show up in life.”  (17:07) “Coaching isn't just about writing some magic good plan. It is enabling the athlete to appreciate and understand the plan, buy into it, and then be able to self manage.” The Biggest Coaching Mistakes When Guiding Time-Starved Athletes (27:25) “If you just build your proverbial, this is the plan that is necessary to get ready for X - a marathon, an Ironman, a half Ironman - whatever it might be, it's always going to conflict with life. Because for a time-starved athlete, life is non-negotiable.” (41:31) “Give them freedom. Allow much of the training to be a little bit of ME TIME. A freshener. A cognitive cleanse. So many coaches miss that as an opportunity and they overload.” Building a Framework of Coaching and Program to Get the Best Return for Your Hard Work (46:54) “You can set high standards, you can have high expectations as a coach, but that is only going to be fostered to high performance if it is supported with great listening and empathy.”   We hope this episode will empower you, the athlete, to improve your own training and performance and raise the bar when it comes to finding the right coach.

George Halvorson is a retired American healthcare executive who served as CEO of six health plans over the last 30 years.  From 2002-2013, he was the CEO of Kaiser Permanente and was listed several times on Modern Healthcare‘s “Most Influential People in Healthcare”. During his tenure at Kaiser Permanente, he led the nation's largest nonprofit health plan and hospital system, which is also a leader in the adoption of technology to advance community health outcomes and reduce health inequities.  Under Halvorson's leadership, Kaiser Permanente's investment in electronic medical records and physician support systems resulted in diminished infection rates and scalable population health outcomes within partnering communities. Since his retirement from Kaiser, George Halvorson has devoted his time to promoting the benefits of early childhood education and to addressing social difference and tensions through his own Institute. George Halvorson is currently the Chair and CEO of the Institute for InterGroup Understanding, a nonprofit organization that works on issues of racism, prejudice, discrimination and intergroup stress and conflict by facilitating a collective understanding of what children need to achieve safe and productive lives. George is someone who leads with a passion to help create intergroup Peace for our nation so that we may intellectually overcome our more negative and damaging instinctive behaviors. In this episode, you will learn the truth about the Medicare Advantage program from one of the leading intellectuals in healthcare.  We also discuss Health IT transformation and the power of organizational culture to reshape care delivery. In the last 20 minutes of the interview, George Halvorson also discusses his mission to improve the culture of our world by helping others overcome negative and instinctive behaviors that lead to intergroup conflict.  This is a powerful discussion about the impact of tribalism in our world and how we have a collective and ethical obligation to help each child from every ethnic, economic, cultural, and racial group in America to overcome the hardwiring of societal conditioning that leads to “us versus them” intergroup conflict. “We need to steer ourselves away from the easy abyss of anger through tribalism, into a higher level of interaction. This is a just-in-time learning opportunity.”   Episode Bookmarks: 01:20 George Halvorson's legacy as a healthcare executive and former CEO of Kaiser Permanente 02:20 The Institute for InterGroup Understanding, a nonprofit organization that works on issues of racism, prejudice, discrimination and intergroup stress and conflict 03:10 George's extensive experience in international healthcare reform and his authorship of several books related to healthcare reform and intergroup peace 04:20 “The fragmented nature of care delivery and siloing of data creates an expensive plethora of uncoordinated, unlinked, economically segregated, operationally limited microsystems, each performing in ways that too often create suboptimal performance” 06:30 “We are on the cusp of the golden age of healthcare delivery, and it's going to be made golden by information, data, and systems.” 07:15 Innovation at Kaiser Permanente led to a 40% reduction in congestive heart failure crisis events 08:15 Leveraging biometric data and predictive algorithms for disease detection and prevention 09:45 George Halvorson as a national leader in mitigating health disparities and his 2013 book, “Ending Racial, Ethnic and Cultural Disparities in American Health Care” 11:15 Medicare Advantage has become a successful social services program for millions of people (and our most important vehicle to reduce health inequities) 12:15 How Kaiser Permanente reduced prostate cancer death rates for Hispanic Americans 13:30 “I believe that we should deliver better care to every single American, and we have done a pretty miserable job for many subsets of ou...
