The whole picture starts to come together.” [6:09] “When you love people, love them, even if they've hurt your feelings. Try to pour love on that person because if you can't find love for yourself, by giving love to someone else, it will come back to you. It opens your heart to give love.” [11:18] “One of the biggest issues we have with health is the choices we make, particularly around food. When I get a good night's sleep, I make better food choices. It's just a fact. The simplest, most base-level around health is what we choose to put in our mouth. If I make better choices when I make sleep, then sleep is the first marker for me.” [13:55]   Links & Resources Get 10% Off Magnesium Supplements with code MAGNESIUM and Check Out the Blog Post: The Magnificence of Magnesium Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online    Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative    Related Episodes Episode 27: Top 20 Longevity Tips From 2020 Episode 56: Top 2021 Longevity Tips Part I Episode 71: 9 Keys To Optimal Health With Dr. Jim Lavalle

Lowering Stress for Optimum Health Part 3: Sympathetic Vs. Parasympathetic Nervous Systems - What they are and what they control - Dr. Jason Jones Elizabeth City NC, Chiropractor The central nervous system is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and all nerves within our body. This system is split into different parts including the autonomic nervous system. While the somatic nervous system controls the movement of our skeletal muscles, the autonomic nervous system regulates involuntary body functions. The autonomic nervous system is split into the sympathetic (SNS) and parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). These two systems control the same general functions in the same parts of the body but produce opposing effects. More so, both the SNS and PNS produce involuntary responses to various stimuli. However, you need to understand the function of each of these systems and what they need to function properly. At our chiropractic office in Elizabeth City, NC, we always love to educate our patients on what to do to keep their autonomic nervous system working optimally.  Sympathetic nervous system (SNS) This system controls the fight or flight response to external stimuli. When you're faced with a perceived threat, whether emotional or physical, your sympathetic nervous system kicks into gear and bring about involuntary and automatic responses, such as: Elevated blood pressure Increased heart rate elevated respiratory rate contraction of muscles heightened awareness Release of adrenaline from the adrenal gland Profuse sweating Conversion of glycogen to glucose Decrease in urinary output Most times, the sympathetic nervous system shuts down many responses of the parasympathetic in order to gain more energy for the fight or flight response. Parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) This system also affects the same body functions as the SNS, but in a different way. Basically, the PNS works to slow down certain responses to bring the body to a state of calm and rest. The PNS basically controls homeostasis or maintains a healthy balance across all of the body's systems. The Parasympathetic responses include: Decrease in heart rate Increase of digestive enzymes Constriction of bronchial tubes in lungs Relaxation of muscles Sphincter relaxation Increase in urinary output Saliva production The vagus nerve is part of the parasympathetic side of the autonomic nervous system. It is heavily involved in digestion, blood pressure, heart, rate, and calmness. The vagus nerve also helps with urination, defecation, and sexual arousal. How the SNS and PNS works The SNS is a faster system as it moves along short pathways. Once it is activated, it stimulates the adrenal medulla to release hormones and chemical receptors into the bloodstream. This activates the target glands and muscles. And once the perceived danger is no more, the PNS takes over to counterbalance the effect of the SNS's response. Both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are vital for our health and survival. However, there must always be a balance between these two for our bodies to stay healthy and perform optimally. A healthy balance of these two parts of your autonomic nervous system comes when your nerves and spinal cord are functioning properly. At our Chiropractic Office at Elizabeth City, NC, Dr. Jason Jones help in giving the best chiropractic care to remove any nerve interference that could disrupt the balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic responses. This allows your body to respond appropriately to any kind of stimuli and maintain proper balance to achieve optimal health. You can visit our office or Consult Dr. Jason to learn more about your body's nervous system and how to strengthen your vagus nerve for overall health and wellness.

Lowering Stress for Optimum Health Part 2- What is Vagal Tone?

Lowering Stress for Optimum Health Part 2: What is Vagal Tone? Dr. Jason Jones Elizabeth City NC, Chiropractor The vagus nerve is simply described as the longest nerve in the body which originates as cranial nerve 10 in the brain. It travels down from the brain to the neck and then passes around important organs throughout the body, including the digestive system, pancreas, liver, spleen, lungs, and heart. The vagus nerve is a key part of your parasympathetic nervous system, which controls the “rest and digest” function, countering the “fight or flight” function of the sympathetic nervous system. The vagus nerve influences many functions in the body, including digestion, breathing, and heart rate, all of which impact your overall health. However, one thing you need to pay special attention to is the “tone” of your vagus nerve. The vagal tone is an internal biological process that determines the activities of the vagus nerve. What is vagal tone? The vagal tone is key to the activity of your parasympathetic nervous system. It is measured by tracking both your heart rate and your breathing rate. When you breathe in, your heart rate speeds up a little, and when you breathe out, your heart rate slows down a little. The bigger the difference between your inhalation and exhalation heart rate, the high your vagal tone. So when you have a higher vagal tone, it means that your body can quickly relax after a period of stress. What is the implication of a high vagal tone? High vagal tone helps to improve many body functions, causing: Lower blood pressure Better blood sugar regulation Improved digestion via increased production of digestive enzymes Reduced risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease Reduced migraines Less anxiety Better mood Higher resilience One of the interesting functions of the vagus nerve is that it reads your gut microbiome and activates a response to control inflammation based on whether it detects pathogens or non-pathogens. This way, your gut microbiome can have an influence on your stress levels, mood, and overall inflammation. What is the implication of low vagal tone? Low vagal tone is found to be associated with depression, cardiovascular conditions and stroke, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, cognitive impairment, and a higher rate of inflammation conditions, including all autoimmune diseases (autoimmune thyroid condition, endometriosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and more). Much research has shown positive feedback between high vagal tone and good overall health. Hence, the more you increase your vagal tone, the more your mental and physical health will improve. Dr. Mladen Golubic, Medical Director of the Cleveland Clinic, states that “The vagal response reduces stress. It reduces your blood pressure and heart rate. Stimulates digestion, and changes the function of certain parts of the brain, and all those things that happen when we are relaxed.” However, do you know that studies have shown that vagal tone can be passed on from mother to child? If you are depressed or anxious during pregnancy, you tend to have lower vagal activity, and once you give birth, your child has a higher chance of having low vagal activity, and low serotonin and dopamine levels. That's more reason why you should learn how to strengthen your vagal tone naturally. You can consult Dr. Jason at our chiropractic office at Elizabeth City, NC, to learn about natural ways to stimulate and strengthen your vagus nerves. This will help to improve your mental, physical, and overall well-being.

Susan from our Flipping50 Insiders group on Facebook asks a question about lowering cortisol levels and I respond in this episode. Who You Ask for Advice Matters Be sure when asking in a group where you don't know the experience, expertise of the responders (and they don't know if they have enough information to respond back to you) that you filter the information very selectively. You put yourself at risk if you treat everything you hear from strangers as a round-up of good ideas. If you have a specific problem, unique background, it makes sense to get a specific recommendation made by consideration of history, status now, and relationship with an expert you trust. Just a bit more: I want to point out – and be sure you understand all is said with respect – we want to be careful simply asking in a group for random suggestions without fully knowing the background, depth of the knowledge of contributors, or certainly any responder has all the information they need to respond, can lead you to faulty information. There are two things I'll address in this short episode: Lowering cortisol levels and improving sleep Asking the right question (of the right people) Member of the Flipping50 Insider's group? Here's how to access or join this free group. Looking for support with sleep yourself? Or want a more wholistic approach to stress from all sources? Here's how best to 1) use a group, and to 2) ask a question, as well as 3) my response to Susan about lowering cortisol levels Question: Anyone have any advice for lowering cortisol levels? I have taken Debra's advice and have replaced her recommended workouts for yoga/Pilates/walking, etc. I'm up every night 2-3 hours and know I have elevated cortisol levels from stress. I think I am an HSP (highly sensitive person) and have struggled in the past to lower my c. even though the stressor is long gone. I've tried every OTC sleep aid imaginable - both supplement/herb/etc. I was hoping not to have to get an Rx for this, but I am getting discouraged and am chomping at the bit to get back to regular workouts. Any thoughts appreciated. Thank you!! - Susan Answer: I don't have enough information here about your current habits to offer any suggestions. So, it is very important for anyone commenting to realize this is not the best way to reach a solution for an individual. What we might get is simply a roundup of other people's random knowledge from a wide variety of sources, some credible and some not. A trained health coach will often answer your question with a question. Someone who's not a health coach will respond only with an answer, that may or may not be right for you. Information Qualified Health Coaches Need Before Reponding: 1) your daily habits 2) what you've tried - and whether that has been systematic and sequential and with adjustments until ruled out 3) are you open to hormone supplementation? in which case testing would help because you'll know what you want to do with the information 4) what time is the waking? liver activity occurs 1-3am, and if the waking is correlated, may indicate that you need support for your liver with dietary changes and some select supplements you may want to consider 5) it also can mean low blood sugar issues are occurring.  Is Lowering Cortisol Levels the Right Question? So, your question seems to be about cortisol- but have you tested the cortisol? Do you know that's the issue for sure, and the only issue? Low progesterone, low pregnenolone, magnesium deficiency, inadequate carbohydrate at dinner, a need to support liver function (a few things do this), as well as your sleep hygiene could be the reason. You want to get sleep, but the first question you have to ask is, what is the cause of the sleep problem, before going to the sleep solutions. It's important to ask the right questions. Random actions get random results. So, let's make sure you put together a plan of action that gets you specific answers to the right questions. But it can be dangerous or a waste of time to ask for random suggestions from anyone who does not know you, your daily habits, your history. Once you have shared that information with a health coach you've established a relationship with (when you have an ongoing problem this is the best way to deal with it). You need to look at whether you need to: reduce cortisol levels so you can go to sleep your cortisol levels are off because you can't sleep cortisol is your root cause problem or it's something else Solve the Problem: Identify what the problem and question really are confirm the true root cause of the problem establish a plan know what you are open to as possible solutions. There's random searching on GOOGLE and YouTube. Then there's joining a group and asking a lot of people similar to you having similar problems what they've tried (unsuccessfully or successfully) that also isn't a very targeted way to reach an answer for your personal needs. I've joined many forums for menopause women and some I can barely stand because the information and questions there are so disturbing to me! It's what often is referred to as the blind leading the blind. Be sure if you have a problem, you identify the best question to ask, then ask an expert, rather than someone in the same spot as you are. For personal answers you may need to establish a client-coach relationship.

Lowering Stress for Optimum Health Part 1: What is the Vagus nerve, why should I care, and what it controls? Dr. Jason Jones Elizabeth City NC, Chiropractor Have you ever heard about the vagus nerve? You probably haven't. Well, it's no surprise to know because scientists have researched many functions of this nerve, and they are still yet to know all. Well, in this article, we shall keep it simple and tell you about this special cranial nerve. Continue reading! The body has 12 cranial nerves, which come in pairs and help to link the brain to different parts of the body, such as your head, torso, and neck. Some of these cranial nerves help to send sensory information, including details about sight, smells, sounds, and tastes to the brain- This is called the sensory function. Other cranial nerves control the function of certain nerves and various muscles, and this is called motor function. However, some nerves perform both sensory and motor functions, and a good example is the vagus nerve, which is also called the 10th cranial nerve or cranial nerve X. What is the Vagus nerve? The word “vagus” is Latin, meaning “Wandering.” This name is given to the cranial nerve because it wanders from the brain into organs in the neck, abdomen, and chest. It is the longest and most complex of the 12 cranial nerves, having two bunches of sensory nerve cells. It basically allows the brain to monitor and receive information about different body functions. The vagus starts in the medulla oblongata. It has two large nerves – long fibers having smaller cells that carry information around the body. One nerve emerges on the left side of the medulla and the other on the right. From the medulla, the vagus moves down, up, and around the body. It goes down to control the muscles of the larynx and moves up to reach the inside of the ear. From the back of your throat to the end of the large intestine, different parts of the nerve wrap around these organs and tubes. And it sticks a delicate finger into the heart and even touches the bladder. What does the vagus nerve do? The vagus nerve has different functions in the body. However, these are the key functions of this nerve: It senses information from the heart, throat, abdomen, and lungs It provides the taste sensation behind the tongue It supports movement functions for the neck muscles responsible for speech and swallowing It is responsible for respiration, digestive tract, and heart rate functioning It delivers information from the gut to the brain, relating to anxiety, stress, and fear - hence, the common saying “gut feeling.” It communicates with the diaphragm during deep breaths It sends anti-inflammatory signals to other body parts However, if the vague verve is overactive, your heart may not pump enough blood around the body. Sometimes, it can cause organ damage and loss of consciousness known as a Vasovagal Response. Why should I care? Like you've seen above, the vagus nerve plays a huge role in our overall health and wellness. However, research has shown that chronic conditions such as diabetes and alcoholism can cause damages to the vague nerve. And if the vagus nerve is damaged, it may result in diarrhea, bloating, nausea, and gastroparesis. That's more reason why you should learn how to strengthen your vagus nerve naturally. You can consult Dr. Jason Jones at our chiropractic office in Elizabeth City, NC, to learn about natural ways to strengthen your vagal nerve for better health.

If you are a property management entrepreneur that wants to add doors, make a difference, increase revenue, help others impact lives, and you are interested in growing your business and life, and you are open to doing things a bit differently, then you are a DoorGrow hacker. DoorGrow hackers love the opportunities, daily variety, unique challenges, and freedom that property management brings. Many in real estate think you're crazy for doing it. You think they're crazy for not because you realize that property management is the ultimate high-trust gateway to real estate deals, relationships, and residual income. At DoorGrow, we are on a mission to transform property management businesses and their owners. We want to transform the industry, eliminate the BS, build awareness, change perception, expand the market, and help the best property management entrepreneurs win. I'm your host, property management growth expert, Jason Hull, the founder and CEO of DoorGrow. Now, let's get into the show. My guest today, I am hanging out with Rick Bennett. Rick, welcome. Rick: How are you today? Jason: I'm doing fantastic so I'm really excited to have you here. We haven't had a lot of guests talking about the short-term rental space and the vacation rental space. A lot of property managers are getting into this. It's becoming really hot. We've got shows on Netflix about it now. Everybody is abuzz with this market. Lots of investors want to get into this space. Property managers, even in the long-term space—if they are in coastal areas or have really popular destinations—have vacation rentals they are also managing and dealing with. You've been an expert in that industry for a while. Why don't you give us a little bit of background on you, how you got started with this, and then we can hear more about Booking With Ease, TripAngle, and all these cool things that you've got going on. Rick: The reason we started this whole business plan is because my mom passed away when I was younger. One of the last things she told me was that she wishes she could have traveled more often, but it was so expensive. The reason she mentioned that is she had a really good job, and they flew her everywhere. But to include me, her son, who she wanted to bring me to several places—she took me to Philadelphia, Boston, you name it—it would cost her the full price to bring me. Her company paid for her. I remember pretty much every time she would tell me man, I would love to take you to Charleston. I just can't. She was very apologetic. That's one of the last things she tells me. She wishes she could have travelled more often. Our thought process was how do we lower the cost of vacations? What we came up with is eliminating the overhead to the owners completely and lowering the cost of their travelers significantly. We came up with TripAngle. TripAngle actually merged with a company called Keys to the House that's been around for over 25 years. We've been in the industry forever. We built it from the ground up. We have our own MailChimp, and we built tools for the owners to be able to rent their properties easier, more efficiently, and once again, lower their overhead big time. When you rent through some of the big boys online with the vacation rental listing sites, it can be quite costly. The reason being is they keep outbidding each other to buy the top spots. What we do is we grow organically. We spread by word of mouth because everybody loves to tell everybody the money that they're saving. We work in conjunction with everybody else. It's a way to just gain more exposure for their short-term rentals. Some of our customers use our features, some don't. We offer free accounting and scheduling for cleanings. We even have where instead of putting our business on all the receipts, you can upload your logo, and all emails sent to your customers have your logo on them. It looks more professional. It's to grow your rental business. We just grow by word of mouth, and we love saving all of our owners' and customers' money Jason: People can white-label this. People can use your tools and services. They're going to save a lot of money versus using these systems that have been a monopoly (it seems like) to some degree. You've got Vrbo. You've got the HomeAway things. You've got Airbnb, of course. How do you stand out in this market of all these big guns? Why would property managers be inclined to leverage and use your system instead of these big networks? Rick: They can use them in conjunction with it. It works well. It keeps the calendars in tune. We're the only site that can guarantee no double bookings because of the way we built our system. It's just much easier to use. What happens is people will sign up with us. They'll use other people mainly. They'll use us a small percentage, but they'll use us. Once they start seeing how much money their customers have saved and how easy it does everything for them, they start transferring everything over to us. We just had a lady sign up with us. Vrbo upped her booking fee to $470. Using our system, on average, her booking fees are about $100. What's neat about that is she makes $20 extra, meaning it's 100% customizable per property. She added the dollar amount. Some people add a percentage amount. Jason: So you can add your own markup. Rick: To the processing fee, right. Her customers went from Vrbo paying $470, and now, they're paying $100–$120 and she makes $20 every booking on top of that in addition to saving the customers $300 a pop. Not to mention that Vrbo also charges her to rent it out. They charge a percentage and things of that nature. Most of our owners collect their own income, their own credit cards. If they collect, our services are 100% free. Jason: Okay. For those listening that are property managers, they can do this and act as the owner for and on behalf of their owner-clients and do the same thing. Rick: Absolutely. Property managers, condo complexes. We've helped a lot of people basically get out of the restraints of property management. I spoke to a town in Texas just recently. They just signed up with us, but the woman told me that they only have the same three property management companies. They've gone through that list about five times because they'll pop somebody, get tired of it, fire them, and go to the next guy, but that's all they have access to. Now, with our system, it does everything for them. It's fully automated. Once you set up your parameters, it's 100% customizable, meaning some of our owners collect $1 amount at the time of reservation. You can set it up per listing. Others collect a percentage of the rental. Some of them charge the remaining balance—which it does automatically through our system once you set that parameter—two days prior to a guest's arrival. Others have it 60 days prior to the guests' arrival. Just whatever it is, it'll run automatically. Somebody lists with us. They say, put $20 down, they'll make $20 extra every reservation, and their customers are saving quite a bit of money. Another thing that they save money on is through Vrbo and Airbnb, they charge $60–$65 for $1500 worth of damage protection on their property. We sell $39 for $3000 worth of coverage. We make sure that all of our owners are covered. We built this to grow the owners' companies. They can add as many fields as they wish. The way it works is let's say they put it in there and say, run the remaining amount 10 days prior to the arrival. Let's say they put 50% down at the time of reservation. When somebody books that, that amount will charge for 50% down. It will shoot them a receipt with their logo on the top and check-in instructions with their logo on the top. Nothing to do with us. Ten days prior to the arrival—if that's the parameter they set—it'll run it in full, it'll schedule it to be cleaned, and it'll alert the cleaners. The cleaners even have it color-coded, knowing if there's an out and in that day. They can make notes. All those notes are sent back to the owners once they're cleaned. Whenever it runs it in full, it'll send them all that info. Two days prior to their arrival, it will send them again that receipt showing paid and check-in instructions because some people make a booking a year ahead of time. Then, a couple of days before, they'll get reminded, this is how you check-in. Our customers can do anything they need. Sometimes, somebody will say, hey, can you send me that receipt again? All they have to do is log in to our website and send it back to them. Another great feature is if they collect their own credit cards, more than likely, they use a company called Authorize.Net. All Authorized.Net is just an online credit card machine. That's it. Whenever people go to log in Authorize.Net, they make you change your login all the time. It can be somewhat frustrating. Through our system, they never have to log in to Authorize.Net. They can refund, they can charge extra, they can do everything through our system. We're integrated with RemoteLock. We're integrated with Authorized.Net. We just helped integrate BookingPal, Vacasa. We've got some big tentacles out there, and we're just growing everybody's company. That's all we care about is growing the owners' rentals. Jason: Awesome. For those listening, a lot of property managers who hear this will go, wow, that sounds really great. Maybe it'll replace me. Maybe you could touch on that. Is this something that the property managers listening to this could use for and on behalf of their owners to be really effective, have better tools, better pricing, and maybe be a better profit center for them? Rick: We have a ton of property managers that use us. What it's done is it helped them eliminate more than half of their staff. It really helps do that. We do hate that a lot of people are getting let go, but it helps make the owners more money. That's what it's all about. Jason: Business owners, I don't think, would be sad to hear that they can't. They don't need as much staff. Staffing is always the most expensive resource in a business generally, so every business owner would be happy to hear that they can operate with less staff. That doesn't mean they're just going to fire everybody, but maybe it means they now can afford to spend more on acquiring more properties to manage, doing more marketing, and shifting their team members' efforts towards building the business up instead of just trying to deal with what's coming in. Rick: We just talked to an owner in Texas that signed up with us not that long ago. This was about a year ago. I remember her specifically saying—and it blew me away—how her property management company at the time used software, meaning that if anybody made a change to a reservation or anything, she would have to go to the office to make everything. From our system, you can change it from your cell phone, tablet, or computer—you can change it from anywhere. We've taken as much out of the owner's hands as possible. Let's say they have it where it charges 10 days prior to their arrival. It'll schedule it to be cleaned. It'll do all that stuff. Let's say somebody calls and says, hey, I want to change my dates or change my condo or home. You can change it in our system with just one click of a mouse. It'll change the cleaning for them. It'll change the calendars on both their properties. It does absolutely everything for them. It's really a simple tool to use. Another great feature is we have search by availability for owners' websites where it will only go through their rentals. We offer rate tables, calendars, custom-built widgets for owners' websites to more efficiently run their rentals, and tape charts. Jason: Rick, let me clarify some of this for those listening. Most of my property management clients and property management business owners refer to their clients as owners. I just want to make sure for those listening, it sounds like what you're saying is when you're saying owners, you're talking about the business owners really. It could be the property manager or the direct owner of the property, but you're talking about the business owner. These business owners have these tools available for them to integrate your system with their website for bookings, to manage their business, to send out white-label emails with their own branding on it—all this stuff. Rick: Yeah. Mailchimp can send specials to everybody they've been with, but as far as the clients go, property management companies love using us. They've been able to grow their businesses and like I said, cut their costs. It's a very simple tool to just plug and play. We've helped a lot of property management companies really get over the hill, so to speak. Jason: You showed me around a bit and had me take a look at stuff. My feedback was initially, it's not the sexiest, prettiest thing, but it sounds like it does everything. It has lots of bells and whistles. You guys have put a lot more attention on the backend, on integrations, on features, and really, it's very client-centric. It sounds like your business is really taking care of your customers and making sure you're building the best product that can do a lot of cool stuff. My feedback to those who are listening to this is give it a check out, take a look at it, and don't judge the book by its cover. Really get into the features and the benefits that could be really beneficial for your business. Rick, what are some of the biggest questions that a property manager who has never used your system? You're selling to them, what are some of the biggest questions that they're concerned about or they want to know? Rick: We prefer property management companies as opposed to individual owners. We serve everybody. We have tons of different clients. But if an individual owner comes to us, they have one property, two properties, we answer those questions. Once they've asked those questions, they know how to use the system so we don't ever have to hear from them again. We prefer a property management company with 500 properties asking those 1 or 2 questions and then learning the whole system. They're off and running 500 properties as opposed to 1 or 2. It's fully accountable. It's 100% customizable per property. If you put 10 properties on our website and you wanted all 10 properties' money to go to a different account for each rental, we have that option available to you. You can set it up per rental. We have it to where some you charge tax, some you don't. We even have features in Florida, if they stay 180 days or longer, it's considered a homestead. If you book a rental for four months, you have to pay taxes on those four months. Those taxes are usually about 17%, 18%, 19%. In Texas, it's 30 days. If they stay 30 days or longer, it's a homestead, so there are no taxes. Whenever they set it up with us, they could say, I want to set up city tax at 7%, hotel tax at 6%, convention center at 2%, and only charge if they stay 29 days or less. If they stay 30 days or more, don't charge taxes. It automatically does the calculation for them. It does it all right there. They book it, they get sent their receipts, and it really helps our owners out because they see where the taxes need to go. It's all itemized right there. They can edit their spreadsheets on our system. Some pay for extra cable, and some like to add in their homeowners' dues. It's just got every feature you could think about. Another great tool for our property management companies—I'd say 70% use the tool this way, whereas 30% use it this way. Some of them, the 30%, make it to where their owners can change things. I have an owner in Virginia that has a property in Florida. They may want to change some pictures on their listing or they may want to change the cost of the property. They can log in themselves through TripAngle, edit that one property, and it will change it on the property management company. That's about 30% of our property managers. The 70% don't like them being able to touch anything, and that's understandable. They could show everything through there. But once again, we made our entire system 100% customizable for whatever their requests are. Jason: Usually, with software that has so many options, features, levers, and buttons, it gets a little bit confusing. How steep is the learning curve? What's the support process like in terms of getting onboarded? Rick: The support is we will hold your hand and walk you through everything. People know how to list their properties. They've done it on Vrbo and on Airbnb so they know how to do all these things. We get very few questions. We should probably get more questions, but people seem to figure it out pretty easily. But people will cancel their reservation. They will change. Our system would be 100% automated if it wasn't for this, but since people do change and they'll call, we'll show them how to click a button or two on our website, and they've got it. You've got a section for all active listings. We even have a feature if you want to set it up to approve the booking. Some people have their property listed on so many different websites. They don't even really know how much they have it listed on so they don't like to take the instant booking, which I understand because it could have already been booked and you just didn't think to put it on there. Our calendars will stay booked. If you have it synced with Airbnb or Vrbo, it will stay in tune. But a lot of people don't like to use calendars on any of them, and they like to approve a booking. A booking will come in, and they have 24 hours to approve it. I'd say 90% of the bookings that come in are approved by our owners. Once again, they can just make it as customizable as they want, but it's really easy to use. It's really simple. It's all about keeping it simple, stupid. We learned that a long time ago and man did we not make it easy getting to that point through professionalism and luck. We have some partners that can do anything. Our team has really been on top of the ball in just putting everything together. If there are ever any questions or any problems, we fix it within hours. We don't have any. Jason: This sounds really great. How can people get started with this? How can they find out more? What would be the next step for those that are curious of taking this for a test drive or maybe taking a look at it? Rick: What they can do is they can go to either one of our websites, bookingwithease.com. You can look at our features. It just answers some of your questions, the general information of every company. It gives you links to be able to click on where it'll divert you over to TripAngle and you could sign up. It's free to sign up. Once you sign up, we recommend putting a RepID number. You had a RepID number for us because I wanted to have a RepID number in there to make sure that the people from DoorGrow get taken care of. What was that RepID number again? Jason: Rick, had me set up an affiliate code or a RepID number. My representative number is 2167. I guess if they go in once they're going through the registration on tripangle.com, towards the bottom, there'll be a representative number. If you put in 2167, Rick's going to do some special for you, some discount or something like that. Rick: Absolutely, yeah. We take care of all of our customers. We'd be happy to reach out to them once they put in that representative ID number. That's how we've grown our business is word of mouth. Most people like to tell others of the great deal that they found. Once they realize what they make on it, they love it. We pay 10% of what we earn. We're doing strength by numbers. The reason our numbers are so low compared to everybody else is because they're trying to compete with each other. We're doing it organically through each other's websites and spreading by word of mouth. As people sign up with us—let's say somebody enters in the 2167 under you, what that will do is on your dashboard, you'll be able to see who's signing up, what bookings are coming through, and all that good stuff. When you have a customer sign up through DoorGrow, they go in there, they sign up, they can agree to our affiliate program—just like you did—they'll be assigned a number, they can tell their neighbor to go sign up, and they'll get 10% of every bit of our earnings per property. Jason: Very cool. They can go to bookingwithease.com which also links to tripangle.com where they would register. They can also just go to tripangle.com to check that out. Cool. Rick, before we wrap this up, is there anything else you feel like a property manager should know regarding TripAngle? Rick: They're in the process of uploading all of them, but we just signed about 3000 properties in Colorado where I know for a fact that they're offering it through an affiliate either breckenridgelodging.com or mountainskitrips.com. If you go to those websites, it'll have our link to be able to book their rentals. You can pick out their rentals, but they're offering 15% off right now for the first month. They just signed up with us. Any properties you find in Colorado on our website should be through those companies—Breckenridge Lodging or Mountain Ski Trips. They're offering 15% off right now on top of their already lower rate. Just to give a quick example, I spoke with a lady the other day from Airbnb. She was a traveling nurse. She asked if she could book one of our rentals. She said she could only afford $1400. If she would have booked directly through TripAngle, it was $1275. She would have booked for less. But through Airbnb, you can't really discuss information until after the reservation's made. I went in there and I adjusted it to where she should have been at the $1400 range. I told her. I said we did the $1400. I don't know what they charge. She looked at it and she said, I'll never use them again. She wanted to book it for four months. They were charging her $2350 a month, meaning they were making $950 a month to use our system when I'm the owner and I'm only making $1400. That doesn't seem like it's the right thing there. If they would have charged (say) $950 upfront, maybe a one-time fee, even that is too high if you ask me. But that's the point. The cost of vacations has definitely skyrocketed since Airbnb has been introduced. We're here to get owners more exposure. They use us in conjunction with Airbnb. The one woman I just told you about from Vrbo for $470, she stopped using them quite some time ago. Airbnb can be fun. Let me tell you that. That can be exhausting at times. I feel that Airbnb has taken a lot of control out of the owners' hands—a lot of it. Our system gives owners 100% control over their listings. If they want to go in and do anything through our system, they can do it. I had a woman who, through Airbnb, booked for September 20th because I had somebody checking out on September 20th. She let me know just now that she actually has to be here on October 18th. She thought she booked it on the 18th, so I went to the Airbnb to switch it out. It wouldn't let me change anything. It was the most difficult process to get her. What I finally did was she agreed to pay me cash when she shows up. There shouldn't be anything like that on Airbnb. With our system, you can adjust the rate. You can adjust everything. You can offer percentages for discounts. One thing that a customer of ours just brought to our attention that they absolutely loved is they have over 2000 rentals. They use another website, but they have to go through on all 2000 rentals to add a discount for that rental. We offer—where you can do that—a master discount so it goes immediately on all 2000 of their rentals. That's so much easier. Jason: Yeah. Rick, I'm sure you could probably tell us features. You just spout these off the top of your head, but you could probably go on for an hour just telling us all the features and benefits of this. It sounds really awesome. Again, I recommend everybody to check it out. Go to tripangle.com or bookingwithease.com, and take a look at that. Rick, I appreciate you coming on and sharing this with us. I think it's cool. I'm excited to expose my audience to this. They're always looking for some cool hack or something that might keep more money in their pocket. I hope your continued success against these companies. Rick: One quick thing I do want to say—and this is all thanks to you—is I do love how you're a straight shooter. Love it. You told us that our logo on TripAngle was awful. I don't know if you know this, but I worked with your team, and they developed it. My business partners and I were cramming, collaborating, and all over the place. What logo that we came up with doesn't even hold a candle to what you all came up with. I even gave your team specific instructions envisioning in a certain way. What they did was 100 times better. I'm so glad they really didn't listen to me because I was wrong. If you go to TripAngle right now, you can see that new logo. There's one at the top and at the bottom. Jason: I like it. Rick: That came from you guys. Jason: Yeah. My team does good work. That's really cool. Rick: They do great work. Jason: I appreciate you being open to feedback. I'm a little rough but hey, if I see a business owner that has something cool but there's something on the surface that would be super easy to fix that would make business easier, I'm going to call it out. That's what I do. Kudos for taking some advice from me. Sometimes it's not comfortable to be told your kid's ugly, so to speak. They need plastic surgery. Rick: Right. That's why they have braces. Jason: Awesome. Cool. I appreciate the little plug for my brand-new team. Rick, I'll let you go. I appreciate you coming on the show. I'm excited to see what you do. Rick: Absolutely. Thank you so much. I look forward to growing with you guys. Jason: Awesome. If you have a crappy logo, you're not really proud of your brand or how things look, you are being perceived falsely as mainly a real estate company, but you do property management, or there's something off with your branding, let us teach you how to clean that up. Let us help you clean that up. We've rebranded hundreds of companies. We are the world's leading property management, branding, and web design agency in existence. Nobody else has probably rebranded more companies in the property management space than us. Nobody else has designed more property management logos than we have. We've done hundreds and hundreds. Reach out to us. We'd love to help you out. We're always excited to help clean up businesses. The level of growth they see before and after we rebrand, clean up their website, and get their pricing and everything in alignment are always far more profitable and the business comes far more easily.

Go to doorgrowclub.com and join our Facebook community. We'd love to have you there. If you're interested in growing your business, reach out. We have an awesome mastermind program. We've got over 70 businesses in it, and they are having phenomenal results. We're really enjoying coaching and mentoring these clients, and helping them move their business forward.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Michael Platt. He is board-certified in Internal Medicine and has nearly four decades of experience working with patients in varied clinical settings from medical groups to eldercare medicine to health research. Dr. Platt, a specialist in natural hormone replacement, has successfully treated thousands of patients worldwide. He has also given numerous seminars on hormones worldwide and been a speaker on hormones in Europe and Asia.  He's the author of the popular Miracle of Bio-Identical Hormones and his latest book, Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness. Dr. Platt currently maintains a practice in Palm Desert, California, devoted to wellness and a preventive approach to illness. In this episode, Dr. Platt opens the show by revealing the inspiration behind his book, Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness. Dr. Platt dives deep into adrenaline, how it works, and what exactly it's doing to our bodies. We talk about the correlation between adrenaline and ADHD. Plus, Dr. Platt gives all sorts of strategies to lower adrenaline levels in your body. Tune in as we chat about taking health into your own hands, boosting your immune system, and how progesterone cream can be a total game-changer.

Platt's mom died of breast cancer. The fact that she died of breast cancer means she had a problem with progesterone, which is the hormone that protects women from breast cancer. She had a lot of fat around her waist, nowhere else. The only thing that puts on fat around the middle is insulin. So, Dr. Platt thought that maybe there was a connection between progesterone and insulin. When Dr. Platt started using progesterone cream, he never got sleepy again while driving. Eventually, Dr. Platt opened a wellness clinic to help people with their hormones. “Adrenaline is probably the number one cause of weight gain.” -Dr. Platt [03:25] What Exactly Adrenaline Is and How It Works In The Body Adrenaline is both a hormone as well as a neurotransmitter. Fibromyalgia is caused by excess adrenaline. When people have fibromyalgia, one of the main things they complain about is fatigue. When someone has a lot of adrenaline, they keep their muscles tense. When you keep muscle tense, you use up a tremendous amount of energy. Part of the fatigue when it comes to your adrenaline is due to just keeping muscle tense. Another reason people get a lot of fatigue with adrenaline is that it prevents them from sleeping. People with too much adrenaline are also low in the thyroid, which can contribute to fatigue. [08:35] What's The Correlation Between People With ADHD and People With High Levels of Adrenaline? What's nice about adrenaline is that it is a neurotransmitter; it gives people intelligence. As a neurotransmitter, it enhances what's called creativity. The most intelligent, successful creative people in the world have a lot of adrenaline. There are literally millions and millions of people that have been diagnosed with ADHD. ADHD is all about adrenaline. The most intelligent, successful creative people in the world have ADHD; it's not bad. Also, ADHD is not a learning disorder; it's an interest disorder. If people are interested and they have ADHD, they'll focus. If they're not interested, they will not focus. [15:00] Will A Keto Lifestyle Help Reduce Adrenaline In The Body? The brain requires two different fuels to function: glucose and ketones. By providing ketones to the brain and glucose, you can get a significant drop in the release of adrenaline within 24 hours. Road rage is caused by adrenaline. You can get rid of road rage in just 24 hours. Ketones will balance out adrenaline. When it comes to adrenaline, Dr. Platt recommends that people eat something before going to sleep. [19:20] Dr. Platt Reveals Some Major Signs That You Have Too Much Adrenaline Adrenaline peaks during the night. People with high adrenaline are quick to anger because adrenaline is an anger hormone. Also, they will have cold hands and cold feet. Adrenaline is a survival hormone. As a survival hormone, it cuts off blood supply to certain areas of the body that are not needed for survival. Also, adrenaline cuts off blood supply to the intestines. People with a lot of adrenaline will almost always have tension to the back of the neck. [28:35] There Are A Few Strategies You Can Use To Lower Adrenaline Levels The best way of tapering down adrenaline is eating correctly. Ketones are a great way to lower adrenaline. Also, glucose from vegetables will be useful as well. Progesterone will block adrenaline. However, if somebody already has insulin resistance and takes progesterone, it will increase the insulin resistance in the brain. [32:00] Not Many Doctors Are Talking About Adrenaline - Dr. Platt Gives His Thoughts Big Pharma controls medicine. They control what doctors learn in medical school and the medical boards that control the FDA. You have an entity that controls medicine that has no interest in people being healthy. Big Pharma doesn't want doctors to know how to get people well. Doctors get no training in hormones. [34:00] Progesterone Cream Can Help With Adrenaline, Here's How To Use It The back of the neck is a great place to put progesterone cream. There's a type of headache called occipital neuritis. This causes excruciating headaches, and it is always mistaken for migraines. This type of headache is only caused by excess adrenaline cranial pressure. Sadly, there's so much that doctors don't realize. You can get rid of ADHD with progesterone cream. Learn more about Dr. Platt's progesterone creams here: https://plattwellness.com/ [38:00] Endogenous Depression Can Go Away When You Lower Adrenaline Levels There's a type of depression called endogenous depression. This is depression comes from within. People will get depressed, but they don't know why they're depressed. The most common cause of endogenous depression is the internalization of anger. Adrenaline is the anger hormone. Lowering anger levels will make the depression go away. [41:45] It's Time To Take Your Health Into Your Own Hands People have to become proactive if they really want to be healthy. You can't depend on the medical system that has no interest in people being healthy. Take control of your own body! It's time to get well and stop relying on traditional medicine to solve your problems.   [44:55] Dr. Platt Has Recommendations For Boosting Your Immune System The whole approach to COVID has to be the immune system. One of the most effective ways of dealing with COVID is a high dose of vitamin D. We can't convert sunlight to vitamin D anymore. Platt recommends vitamin D in powder form. Also, 10,000 units of vitamin D prevents sunburn. Overall, the government should be talking about metabolic health, not pushing a vaccine.   AND MUCH MORE!   Resources from this episode: Check out Dr. Platt's Website: com  https://plattwellness.com/discount/KETO10  use keto10 at checkout Follow Dr. Platt Instagram: com/plattwellness/ Facebook: com/plattwellness/ Twitter: com/PlattWellness YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/meplatt1/featured Get Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0977668312/benazadi-2o Read The Miracle of Bi-identical Hormones: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019KQ0JS2/benazadi-20 Email: Questions@PlattWellness.com Join theKeto Kamp Academy: https://ketokampacademy.com/7-day-trial-a WatchKeto Kamp on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUh_MOM621MvpW_HLtfkLyQ Order Keto Flex: http://www.ketoflexbook.com -------------------------------------------------------- / / E P I S O D E   S P ON S O R S  PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off.

How The Big Apple is taking on the carbon footprint from buildings

ESG Insider: A podcast from S&P Global

In this special New York Climate Week episode of the ESG Insider podcast, we explore how the built environment – new building construction plus existing offices, apartment blocks, airports and other structures – is responsible for nearly 40% of all global carbon dioxide emissions, and what it will take to decarbonize this vast sector. In the episode, we interview three experts on the subject: Mark Reynolds, CEO of Mace Group, a large construction company focused on making buildings more sustainable; John Mandyck, CEO of a non-profit in New York City called Urban Green Council; and Dana Schneider, director of energy and sustainability at the Empire State Realty Trust, which owns the Empire State Building in New York, an iconic structure that has made significant headway in lowering its carbon footprint. Lowering the carbon footprint of the built environment is a massive task. Although building emissions reached their highest level in 2019, many cities have not yet embarked on sizable decarbonization plans. Some landlords could have to spend millions to retrofit buildings. Construction companies are under pressure to use less carbon-intensive materials. Homeowners are being prodded to spend money to make homes energy efficient. And investors with face the challenge of assessing the transition risk.  That helps to explain why at least three panel discussions at this week's NY Climate Week were devoted to carbon emissions from the built environment, and why the big UN COP26 climate conference this fall will similarly dedicate an entire day to the subject.

Dive into this week's episode where I share exactly how.Warning, unpopular opinion inside. Proceed with an open mind.
