Award-winning chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author, Seamus Mullen, is our guest today. Seamus shares how realizing he is not his patterns led to profound healing. Identification with our patterns can perpetuate suffering. When we realize our Spiritual Self can never be patterned we find freedom and a genuine willingness to take responsibility for our lives. Growing up on a rural farm in Vermont, both Seamus and his brother cooked meals alongside the rest of the family. Seamus learned early on that he could make others happy if he cooked good food for them. Eventually, his career became an extension of this early learned pattern and belief. When he arrived at the Hoffman Process classroom, one of the things Seamus first noticed was a poster on the wall that says, "I am not my patterns." Seamus really took this in as he looked back over his life. Twelve years earlier when he was working to heal from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Seamus' new functional doctor helped him see that "he wasn't sick but he had this illness." This is the difference between identifying with sickness - I am sick - versus having an illness. Through the Process, Seamus worked to heal through the cycle of transformation. Another big learning at the Process for Seamus was how compassion must be the precursor to forgiveness. Through doing the Process, he was able to forgive his parents, which brought him freedom and peace. Listen in as Seamus shares with us a beautiful story of healing and forgiveness that happened post-Process with his father and family. More about Seamus Mullen: Seamus Mullen is an award-winning chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author. A health crisis nearly ended his career in 2012. A dramatic re-evaluation of his lifestyle and relationship with food led to a total transformation. In twelve months, he reversed an “incurable auto-immune disease, lost over 80 pounds, and returned to being an active and healthy human. As a nationally recognized leading authority on health and wellness, Seamus is on a mission to help as many people as possible take control of their own health and embrace the remarkable healing power of Real Food! Seamus can often be seen as a featured judge on the popular Food Network series “Chopped” and “Beat Bobby Flay,” and is a frequent guest on programs such as The Today Show, The Martha Stewart Show, and CBS This Morning where he shares his knowledge of cooking and nutrition. In 2012, Seamus published his first cookbook, Hero Food. In 2017, he released his second cookbook, Real Food Heals. Seamus lives in sunny Malibu, California, and is the Culinary Director for the Rosewood Sandhill Hotel. You can find him swinging kettlebells, riding bikes, and hiking in the coastal mountains when he's not cooking or writing. You can learn more about Seamus here, and follow him on Instagram and Twitter. As mentioned in this episode: Pattern Ping Pong: Patterns feed off each other and reactions lead to escalation. Functional Medicine: "The functional medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach. This approach empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness." https://media.blubrry.com/the_hoffman_podcast/content.blubrry.com/the_hoffman_podcast/Liz_and_Seamus_Mullen_Podcast_Final.mp3

This week it's another solo jaunt with just moi, and I'm talking - for the second time - about holidaying alone.I recently returned from a solo trip to L.A., and because travelling alone is so fresh in my mind, I thought it was an opportune moment to remind you why going on holiday on your own can be all kinds of fabulous.In this episode, I talk about how I spent my time during 7 days solo in L.A. (although full disclosure: three of them were spent at a retreat). I tell you about my 'interesting' journey from the airport to my Airbnb, the beautiful neighbourhood of Laurel Canyon where I stayed, a day spent in gorgeous Malibu, as well as the random man who showed me his incredible view on my final evening in Los Angeles...!Although travelling solo can seem nerve-wracking to some, I firmly believe that it can also be life-affirming and exciting.

This week's episode of Scrambling with Dylan Otto features Pepperdine University Golfer Luke Gifford. Who would've thought that a Florida boy would be playing college golf in Malibu, California! Mr. Gifford is that man, however it wasn't until recently that he made the switch to Malibu. Growing up in the Boca Raton area, Luke's junior golf days consisted of high competition every time he was teeing it up. This allowed him to really develop his game and start looking at his future playing college golf. He makes the argument that if you're from Florida you either want to be a Gator or a Seminole, he wanted to be a Bull at USF. He played his 4 years there and is now currently taking his 5th year at Pepperdine where they have a very talented team. Gifford and his fellow Waves are looking to do some damage this next semester and give winning Nationals a run! Enjoy the show!

John O'Hurley is Back Co-host of NBC's Thanksgiving Day National Dog Show; actor John O'Hurley (J. Peterman on Seinfeld) is back for the 14th year to share fun stories about the dogs in his life. He'll also take a stab at pronouncing the new breed names in this year's Thanksgiving Day show. At home, John has two dogs, a Cavalier King Charles named Sadie and a Havanese named Lucy. John says that everything he knows about dogs he learned at the National Dog Show from the breeders and from walking up and down the aisles full of dogs. So when he was looking for new family members, he knew what type of dogs he wanted. John states that dogs are not trials. You should learn about the dog you are interested in and shouldn't get a dog to try it out and see if it will work. The shelters are unfortunately full of too many dogs that were trials. Listen Now Country Star Tanya Tucker Guests Musician Tanya Tucker joins the Thanksgiving celebration live from Nashville. She has a menagerie of animals and plenty of anecdotes to go around. This is the first time for her on Animal Radio…we'll be gentle. But this ain't her first rodeo. Years ago, Tanya tells us that she lost one of her Chihuahuas in the hills of Malibu, California, for 9 months. He was eventually found about 60 miles away due to a microchip. She was in Nashville when she got the call and they had an incredible reunion, with both of them going crazy! Listen Now Don't Stuff Your Pet With Thanksgiving Leftovers Thanksgiving is all about enjoying time together - family, friends, and great food. In many households the family pet may also sample a taste from the holiday table; a morsel of turkey breast for Tabby or a side of fixings for Fido. Tuned in to those enticing smells, our pets know how to manipulate us with a flutter of sad puppy dog eyes or incessant meowing. Sharing these Thanksgiving goodies with our pets can put their health in jeopardy, but many of us do it. Over 60-percent of pet owners confess to sharing their holiday meal with their pets, but that doesn't make it wise. Listen Now My Cat from Hell Animal Planet host, Jackson Galaxy is back to yap about his awesome book. Jackson and Kate (his partner in crime) will show you how to make your house cat-friendly without forsaking aesthetics. Listen Now Banning Shock Collars The Scottish government is asking residents there for their opinions on electric shock collars, used to train cats and dogs, and if they believe the collars should be banned. Wales, Sweden, Denmark and Germany have already banned shock collars, but supporters of them say they can be used successfully as a last resort - and have compared the pain inflicted to a static shock. Meanwhile, shock-collars are still legal in the United States; the usefulness is still in question. Sometimes a dog will "take the hit" if his/her drive is high.

Really, really looking to experts who are not the mainstream media. Who are these kids? Just outta college writing articles for the New York Times or Forbes or whatever, who you might be, or these internet things and uh, you know, or listening to people on social media who call themselves experts and they've been in the game for five years.You know, I think you have to really look to the economist. To the experts and really source that out and turn to the investors who've been there, done that. [00:00:41] Sam Wilson: Rich Fete has a passion for helping people improve their businesses, grow their wealth, and live more fulfilling lives. He's the author of The Wise Investor Extreme Success in the Audio Program. Momentum Rich, welcome to the show. [00:00:52] Rich Fettke: Thank you. Good to be here. [00:00:54] Sam Wilson: Pleasure. Look forward to it. Absolutely. Thanks for coming on today, Rich.There are three questions I ask every guest who comes on the show in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now and how did you get there? [00:01:04] Rich Fettke: Oh man. 90 seconds or less. Okay, I'll do this quickly. My wife and I have a real estate investment group that we started when I was given six months to live., Kathy had to rally. She was a stay at home mom and uh, it was a mis uh, diagnosis. They call it a false positive. They. The melanoma that I had on my skin had spread to my liver. Um, but it was a false diagnosis, but it was that type of, that was the impetus really for Kathy to say, how am I gonna earn an income if Rich dies? So we started this small group that we thought would be, uh, you know, maybe a hundred investors. And that group called Real Wealth we started in 2003, has grown to over 67,000 members today. So we've helped a lot of people get into investment real estate around the country. [00:01:49] Sam Wilson: Wow. 67,000 members. That's an astounding number. [00:01:56] Rich Fettke: Not, we're grateful . [00:01:57] Sam Wilson: Absolutely. I mean, there's so many questions I would have from that, but maybe just if you can quickly give the background on what real wealth, what type of, uh, real estate you guys are investing in. [00:02:09] Rich Fettke: Back then, back in 2003, we were helping people get into single family properties in different markets. Cathy actually had Robert Kiyosaki on her radio show way back when, and he said this was like 2003. He said he was selling all his high priced California properties and moving everything 10 31 exchanging into, uh, Texas. So we followed his advice. We did the same thing. We did a cash out refi on our property up in the San Francisco Bay area when we were living. And we invested in Texas and that's when we had listeners of Kathy's radio show, our friends, our family saying, how did you do this? Are you living here in the Bay Area and investing in Dallas? So we, that's when we started to help people just connect with property brokers, property teams with one to four units, uh, investment properties available. So that's how, that's what got us started. And so it was slow on those beginning years. We had a couple hundred members and I remember we had a thousand members and we were so stoked on that. Then we got to 10,000 members and all, and then we started to syndicate. So we syndicate as well, mostly for residential ground up development is our main focus there. [00:03:18] Sam Wilson: Gotcha. And is that what you guys, is that the main focus here today is ground up, residential? [00:03:24] Rich Fettke: Both. Um, yeah, so we syndicate ground up residential. That is a major focus. We also have a fund with single family properties in it. So, um, that's growing to be a 20 million fund for credit investors. And then we still today help a lot of people, especially first time investors, busy professionals who don't have the time to hunt and find properties. We connect them. Brokers and property teams in emerging markets that are really growing, where the population's moving there, where businesses are moving and we help a lot of them get into their first investment property, which as you know, can be a groundbreaking, you know, just groundbreaking and mindset shift. When you get that first Andre investment property, you kinda like, wait a minute, I'm an investor now. I get this, and then they go on and they'll buy, you know, 10 or they'll get 20 investor loans. Move on up into multi-family, whatever that might be. [00:04:16] Sam Wilson: Right. Oh, that's really cool. , do you ever just pinch yourself and go, how? I never actually imagined I'd be here [00:04:22] Rich Fettke: A hundred percent. Yeah. I never knew. Man. No, absolutely. I'm so grateful. You know, I do a lot of visioning. I was a coach for 15 years before we started real well. So I did a lot of visioning and future self and where I wanted to be. And so I'd write out what my future house looked like, who I was like, and this was work I was doing, you know, 25 years ago. So yeah, I'm really grateful I've become that future self. I'm living in Malibu, California in a beautiful home. I got an amazing wife, couple daughters, a grandson. Yeah, and the business that we've built, we're a conscious capitalism company, so we're always about giving back and making sure all of our stakeholders are supported and honored. So yeah, I do pinch myself consistently. See, remember to be grateful, rich. This is awesome. This is what you work for. [00:05:09] Sam Wilson: That's fantastic. What, what have been some of the, I . Guess, toughest. Lessons maybe that you've learned that you said, man, these are things that I would, I would tell anybody getting into real estate, involved in real estate avoid this or do it differently. [00:05:25] Rich Fettke: Yeah. On the real estate side of things, it is, uh, cuz Cathy and I went through 2008 and we got leveled, we got rocked, and we had foreclosures, we had short sales. It really hit us hard and so we recovered from that obviously, but it took some. So, I mean, real estate wise, it makes sure that any investment makes sense from day one. When you buy it, make sure it's a cash flowing property. Make sure you're not doing short term, um, bridge loans or any short term financing that you know you can't cover. If things turn cuz things can turn, you know, things can turn quick. We've seen it. So that's the main thing. Make sure everything makes sense from day one. Don't bet on appreciation. Don't bet. This is all gonna go well, you know, this is what they say. You're looking at a multi-family and you got this seller and they're saying, oh yeah, you can improve management. You can improve this. Assume that you can't, and make sure it still makes sense from there. Right. So that's on the real estate side. On the personal side, it is, honestly, it's work on yourself. What I've seen with the 67,000 members of real. Myself, the people that I network with, my colleagues in real estate. It's the people who work on themselves to be better humans, to be more focused, to be more effective. When you put that work in on yourself, that's when all the other stuff works so much better. [00:06:41] Sam Wilson: Wow, that's great. That's great. Tell me about building a team. I mean, you can't possibly have 67,000 members in the Real Wealth Group without having an amazing team behind you. What's that process been like? [00:06:57] Rich Fettke: That's so true though. It's so true. You know, one thing I'm always saying to my team is, the only thing more important than a great idea is the team that can see it through. And I just, I believe that on our core level, it is my unique ability. It's what I bring to real wealth. You know, my wife, Kathy, Is the co-founder of Real Wealth, and she is like the magic maker. She understands markets, she understands market cycles. That's why she's on, you know, bigger pockets on the market as a co-host on that. And just awesome. What I bring is being able to lead a team of amazing people, , to follow our purpose, our mission, and our goals. So for me, it's all about making sure people have autonomy, making sure that they have responsibility for their own part of the. It's really inspiring and to be about something bigger than just making money, you know, it's important. Money's really important. What we do is we donate 10% of our profits from real estate transactions to organizations that change the world, like Habitat for Humanity and Operations, smile Mentors International, and then that just rallies a team.So we're not just about let's hit this income goal, or let's sell this many properties, or whatever it might. Often it's, let's do this because we can continue to give back and we have a profit sharing plan. So everyone, the better the company does, the better everyone in the company does. Everyone's on our profit sharing plan. I think those are some of the keys to really inspire a team to everyone collectively work together and be in sync and have an awesome culture. All that good. [00:08:27] Sam Wilson: And that's so true. And that's one of the things we were actually discussing, uh, at a meeting this morning, which was how, how do we break down, you know, I won't go into the details on it, but incentivize correctly and motivate. And I think you hit on it there with the, you know, having a profit sharing plan, having a, a part, a part of your company that gives back. Are there other things that you feel like, or some strategic shifts maybe you made that help define your culture in your company. [00:08:52] Rich Fettke: setting core values, you know, you hear it all the time, but it's really important. Our core values spell atomic , which is, you know, a very small thing that has a big powerful impact. So we have accountability, we have, uh, transparency, which is a big one, making sure that. Share their feelings with each other that they speak up, that they don't hold things back. We have optimism is one of our core values. So always coming back to these core values. Mastery is another one. Integrity is another one. Connection is another one. So we're constantly reinforcing and talking about these core values. At a minimum quarterly, I do a state of the company address every quarter looking at how do we do profitability wise? How many people do. How many people filled out our real wealth assessment that have, we've helped them create real wealth in their lives, which is, like I said, it's more than just money. It's about living life on your own terms. So all these things constantly coming back to those core values and looking at how we're on purpose and just like a sports team, you know what I mean? When you're keeping score, everyone gets all stoked and they wanna win and they wanna move up the ladder to the championships. So it's kinda the way it is at real. [00:09:59] Sam Wilson: No, that's great. I love, I absolutely love that. Um, tell me this, if we can shift maybe just slightly and talk a little bit about maybe the market cycle and what you guys are seeing. I mean, you went through 2008, you said that was a super painful time. You guys, you know, you said, you mentioned the word foreclosure and short sales and all the dirty words that none of us enjoy . Um, You know, and so where, where are we now? What are you advising investors? What are, what, what's, what's the correct move if, if there is such a one for a podcast, you know, for everybody here today? [00:10:33] Rich Fettke: Mm. Yeah. I mean, we aren't, we're in crazy times. There's no doubt about it. When, you know, it's a completely different scenario than 2008, as you know, and I'm sure your listeners know and. . You know, it's, it's crazy times we're seeing it. There's, you know, a lot of investors are in freeze mode. Yeah. And that's the biggest thing that's impacting us as an organization where there's so many investors, especially new investors who are just like, oh my God, the mainstream media is telling me there's gonna be a crash and a recession, and interest rates are terrible and affordability's, you know, terrible and all this stuff. So there's a lot of investors sitting on the side. The experience. Investors are the ones who are diving in and negotiating and getting better deals and getting their property management to do free property management for a while. Or sellers will, they'll pay for that. Even, uh, sellers paying down interest rates and that's, I'm seeing that today, which you didn't see back then, but you know, we still have what, I think it's four. Homes shy right now that we need, we didn't have that in 2008, so there's still 4 million homes that we need because the rate of building has decreased so much. And then with the supply chain issues that we went through over the last couple years, it's had a huge impact on builders as well, so, It's just different. You know, back then there was too much inventory and people were on these, no income, no asset loans. And so it's a whole different world today. But I would say the best thing you could do as an investor in today's market and where we're heading, I don't think it's gonna be a crash. There is gonna be some softening, especially in the overpriced markets, the markets, and we need it. Honestly. You know, some of these markets need a correction. They need to lower it to be more affordable so people can have a home. But with that as an I. Really, I think it's about educating yourself. Really, really looking to experts who are not the mainstream media. Who are these kids? Just outta college writing articles for the New York Times or Forbes or whatever you might be, or these internet things. And you know, or listening to people on social media who call themselves experts and they've been in the game for five years. You know, I think you have to really look to the economy. To the experts and really source that out in turn to the investors who've been there, done that. You know, that's, that's what Cathy and I do. We really talk to the people who are in the game, who've been through 2008, who have a clear game plan and we learn from them. [00:12:52] Sam Wilson: Love it. That's absolutely sage advice. Talk to me about the affordable housing crisis. People are calling it. What's, what's happened on that front? Is there an opportunity for investors? And I said this yesterday on a podcast. it was some of the effect of what we create serves the customer. Like it creates an awesome product for the customer and I am then in turn rewarded with profit. Like I'm not opposed to that, but is there [00:13:18] Rich Fettke: That's just capitalism, right? [00:13:20] Sam Wilson: Right, right. I provide an awesome service and they reward me with profit. It's great. Is there a way in affordable housing or is there an opportunity in affordable housing for investors to make a difference and also turn a profit. [00:13:30] Rich Fettke: Absolutely, absolutely. You know, I've got some good friends. Um, you know, one of 'em is Ken McElroy, who owns 10,000 doors. You know, he does a lot with multifamily and property management. One thing he does is whenever he makes, uh, a rent increase, he always does something to improve his facilities, whatever it might be. So if someone at tenant's gonna get an rent, First he says, Hey, rent is going up and we're also gonna do, we're gonna put all new appliances for you, or you need new floors, we're gonna put in new hardwood floors, or replace your carpets, whatever it might be. So that's one way to create a win-win where you wanna just, you don't wanna put off the rent increase because then all of a sudden you, you start your, you're slipping behind. But to do something like that, there's, that's a one, a win-win that really benefits people. But you know, just provide. Affordable housing and not being a slum lord, and having people, you know, helping people get into quality properties, whether that be multifamily or single family, helping them do that as an investor, that's, that's really giving back. You know, Cathy was awarded, um, one of the top 100 intrigue, most intriguing entrepreneurs by Goldman Sachs for two years in a row. Wow. And she went up and she was talking to Lloyd Blankfein and she said, I don't get it. Why? I'm, I'm here. The founders of Uber and Method Soap and Elon Musk and, and all this stuff. What am I here for? And he said, be, and this is, this is probably about 20 12, 20 13, and he said, because you're changing the world. You are helping people. You're going into these neighborhoods with foreclosures. You're helping investors acquire these properties, fix 'em. And then helping, you know, creating affordable housing for people. That's a game changer. So you are an intriguing entrepreneur. So I think that's it. We do a service and we have to really remember that. That we are serving people, just like you said. So how can we serve people more effectively? [00:15:24] Sam Wilson: Right. I love that. That's absolutely great. Before we sign off here, rich, I want to hear about your latest book. Can you tell me, uh, the name of it and then, you know, there's a lot of financial books out there. Can you tell me why is yours different? [00:15:39] Rich Fettke: Yeah, there are a lot of great financial books in, I just got this two days. It's called a Wise Investor. This is my hard cover. I just finally got, it's the real deal.That's awesome. I've been waiting for a while. Supply chain issues. Right. I had to wait seven months for this book to get printed because the paper mills are so shy on paper. [00:15:58] Sam Wilson: for a hardback book. It was seven months? [00:16:01] Rich Fettke: Seven months from which I wrote. I finished writing this book a year ago. Wow. So what makes it different? And that's why I'm so stoked to be able to hold it. What makes it different is it's a parable. So if you kind of think. Blending Rich Dad, poor Dad, and The Alchemist and the Richest Man in Babylon. If you blended those all into one book, that's kind of what The Wise Investor is. It's a parable about creating financial freedom and also about living your best life. So it's all about taking the lessons that I've learned over the last 20 years as a real estate investor and the lessons 15 years before that I, I gained as a coach working with hundreds of clients. Everything about how to be your best self, how to live a better life, how to live a more balanced life, but also how to create financial freedom. And of course it's with a focus on real estate investing. [00:16:47] Sam Wilson: Absolutely. I love it. If our listeners wanna get a copy of that, when and how do they do that? [00:16:53] Rich Fettke: Uh, they can do it right now. It's on Amazon. It's on all major book sellers. Uh, hard cover's gonna be shipping out in early December, so coming up really soon, the Audible, I mean the, um, Kindle version came out back in April. It's doing really well. And then the Audible, which I did the narration four, which was kind of fun cuz there's 10 different characters. Women, kids, . I had to do a little voice acting classes on that one. But, uh, that came out, um, August 30. And now the hard cover's coming out and it's, you can order it, you can pre-order it now on Amazon or wherever books are sold. [00:17:24] Sam Wilson: That is awesome. One last question for you. If it is like a Rich Dad, poor dad, or the richest man in Babylon, are the characters in the book based on real people? [00:17:36] Rich Fettke: a great question. Yes, it's a fictional story, but definitely based on real world people and real world situations. Everything from, you know, Cathy and me and the lessons that we learned going through 2008. Uh, other friends of ours who, um, I'm sure a lot of what your listeners would know, you know, based on their story and what we've learned from them. And also honestly, a lot of the members in real. Kathy and I interviewed them on her podcast and we call it Real Well Story. So we find out where they were, what did they do, and where are they now. And so a lot of those lessons just inspired me, like, oh, I gotta, I have to weed this into this story. So it tells a story. The wise investor tells a story of this guy who's. Like a hard working family man. He's got a couple kids, a wife, um, but he works so many hours and he can't get ahead and he, so he doesn't have time for his wife or his kids. And then he meets this wise mentor who is an investor, and he teaches him a new way to financial security for himself or his family. And this guy, the main character's name's Ryan Brooks. He becomes wealthy in way more ways than he thought. [00:18:38] Sam Wilson: That's fantastic. Rich, thank you so much for coming on the show today. If listeners wanna get in touch with you or learn more about the Real Wealth Network, what is the best way to do? [00:18:52] Rich Fettke: Super simple, just real wealth.com. real easy. [00:18:53] Sam Wilson: fantastic real wealth.com. We'll make sure you put that there in the show notes. Rich, thank you again for coming on today. I certainly appreciate it. Bye guys. [00:18:59] Rich Fettke: Thank you.
On September 16th, 2009, Mitrice Richardson was in jail for acting bizarrely in a restaurant in Malibu, not being able to pay for her food, and having less than an ounce of marijuana on her. As you get to know Mitrice through the episode, all of this was so out of character for her. It's likely Mitrice was suffering with bipolar disorder but it crept up slowly through the years, barely detectable. That night, it's believed she had a mental breakdown after not sleeping for five nights.Her mother, Latice, called the station and said since her daughter would be at the jail until morning, she would come pick her up. Morning came sooner than expected. Mitrice was free to go from the station a little after 12AM on September 17th. Latice was not notified. Mitrice was in Malibu, a place she was not familiar with, 40 miles away from home. Her cellphone and purse were in her car, which they had towed off to a tow yard on the Pacific Coast Hwy.After Mitrice left the police station, she walked off into the darkness, never to be seen alive again.In regards to Mitrice's disappearance and strange death, you might start to question everything…• Mike Kessler's LA Magazine feature: https://www.lamag.com/longform/what-happened-to-mitrice-richardson• Ronda Hampton's Data Dump: https://thelocalmalibu.com/huge-data-dump-in-mitrice-richardson-case-in-solving-the-thirteen-year-cold-case/--Socials | Website | Contact | Patreon--Twitter: https://www.Twitter.com/ReverieCrimePodInstagram: https://www.Instagram.com/ReverieTrueCrimeTumblr: https://reverietruecrime.tumblr.comFacebook: https;//www.Facebook.com/ReverieTrueCrimeContact: ReverieTrueCrime@gmail.comWebsite: https://reverietruecrime.wix.com/podcastPatreon: https://www.Patreon.com/ReverieTrueCrime SOURCES:https://malibutimes.com/mitrice-richardson-case-re-established-12-years-laterhttps://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/mitrice-richardson-case-reward-mysterious-and-controversial-death/2848312/https://www.foxla.com/news/county-increases-reward-in-mitrice-richardson-disappearance-deathhttps://www.newspapers.com/image/826857221/https://www.allgaylong.com/blog/the-frustrating-disappearance-of-mitrice-richardson/ https://www.newspapers.com/image/193628377/https://abc7news.com/archive/8581482/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193742662/https://laist.com/news/mitrice-richardson-disappearance-10-year-anniversaryhttps://www.newspapers.com/image/603876279/https://www.newspapers.com/image/603876254/https://www.newspapers.com/image/609072842/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Mitrice_Richardsonhttps://www.newspapers.com/image/194023976/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193229949/ https://www.newspapers.com/image/193230094/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193350362/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193398267/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193445609/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193447043/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193463853/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193475965/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193256173/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193914552/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193487871/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193944201/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193515686/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193868323/https://www.newspapers.com/image/568131707/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193586558/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193588429/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193383404/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193624747/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193389142/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193397993/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193402342/ https://www.newspapers.com/image/193659090/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193659210/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193512782/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193663545/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193382535/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193907633/ https://www.newspapers.com/image/483108346/https://www.newspapers.com/image/796024534/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193484379/https://www.newspapers.com/image/337930547/https://www.newspapers.com/image/285252859/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193578193/https://www.newspapers.com/image/569384487/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193828588/https://www.newspapers.com/image/193510693/
Jolyon Collier is the founder of Counting Coral, a not-for-profit organisation bridging the gap between conservation, art, corporations, tourism and local interests.As a highly successful businessman, Jolyon created his wealth in the construction industry. Over the years his success has fed his appetite to be in the ocean, initially as a surfer, then videographer and diver, and now conservationist. As a young man, Jolyon found himself drawn to Fiji with his surfboard under one arm and a video camera in the other. The videography of surfers was still relatively new, so Jolyon capitalised on this and sold his footage to the tourist surfers and whilst waiting for them to cruise past, Jolyon's attention was drawn to (you guessed it) the reefs.With a rather humorous, if not completely dangerous introduction to diving, Jolyon experienced the underwater world off the coast of Malibu and was instantly hooked. Since those days he has had an entire and rewarding career in the construction industry, ultimately leading to an early retirement and a change of focus back to the reefs.Counting Coral is leading the development of Sculptural Coral Banks, a new and advanced method to aid coral growth. These structures are designed to support the growth of corals in a manner, that once they bloom they become part of the overall artistic design. Furthermore, the corals introduced to the structures are carefully selected from local reefs so that they can be reintroduced once a favourable parent coral has propagated. Jolyon and his team of scientists, divers and conservationists install the sculptures themselves, select and collect the corals and will, in turn, reintroduce the corals back to the original reef locations. There are multiple benefits to this system, not only are we protecting, preserving and promoting coral growth but we are creating a new attraction for tourism. Divers, freedivers and snorkelers eager for that next amazing picture or video have an epic backdrop with radiant natural light striking through the clear Fijian water. Local resorts that partner with Counting Coral can proudly announce their part in developing the ongoing eco-protection of their reefs. More importantly, the natural reefs receive some relief from visitors who may be unaware of how delicate an environment it is. Finally, the structures can aid in scientific research and support those corals that may be diminishing. It's also worth noting that those corals registered as "known" in Fiji are actually just a replication of what is found throughout Australasia, Jolyon's team are able to identify those corals and have even possibly found corals that may previously have been unknown to Fijian Waters.If you can spare two minutes, please review the podcast on any of the major streaming platforms (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ are awesome btw

The Lakers still don't know if LeBron James will play Friday night against Detroit. He was a participant in Wednesday's practice, but only in the non-contact portions. Is it a sign he's not healing? Of extra caution? Hard to say. But one thing is clear - both games this weekend (Friday against the Pistons, Sunday vs. San Antonio, both at home) are super important not just from a wins-and-losses standpoint (can't keep making the hole deeper) but also vibes. Detroit and San Antonio are bad teams. With or without LeBron, if the Lakers want to believe they have a chance to compete this year, these games have to be won. The mental damage that comes with losing over the weekend might be as significant as the hit in the standings. Maybe more. Along those lines, these games are important in the whole, "Will they or won't they, should they or shouldn't they?" questions around trades. It's fair to say that Lakers fans are still thinking hard about Myles Turner, who continues to tantalize by playing extremely well for the Pacers. So much so that when Rob Pelinka and Jesse Buss were spotted boarding a plane to Indiana, even when everyone knew it wasn't to scout Turner and Buddy Hield, or sit face to face with Pacers boss Kevin Pritchard... people still kinda hoped maybe it was? A big week for wishcasting. Rob-on-a-plane is a wonderful, fun new entry in the great lineage of "Kevin Garnett bought a house in Malibu!" tea leaf reading. But what about the rumors that the Clippers might be getting involved? If Turner ends up in Los Angeles, but not playing for the purple and gold? Watch out, because it's probably torch-and-pitchforks time. HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky SEGMENT 1: LeBron practices, but without taking contact. Does that mean he's getting close to playing? SEGMENT 2: Rob Pelinka gets on a plane to Indiana, and hilarity ensues on the internet. SEGMENT 3: So is the market for Turner heating up? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

With a passion for philanthropy, she has worked with a variety of nonprofits including Charity Water; Surf Aid; Heal the Bay; The Flatwater Foundation; and Global Citizen with proceeds aiding in their ongoing campaign to end poverty. The brand also has partnerships with SXSW, Austin City Limits Music Festival; Lollapalooza Music Festival; and with John Mayer's previous concert tours.

Dan Karaty is one of the hottest entertainers working today. In addition to choreographing films like Disney's "Prom," “Music and Lyrics” with Drew Barrymore, and “Did You Hear About The Morgans” with Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker, Karaty currently serves as a Judge around the world on ratings hits "So You Think You Can Dance," "X Factor," "Everybody Dance Now," "My Name Is...," "Holland's Got Talent," "The Ultimate Dance Battle" and "Belgium's Got Talent." Karaty's incredible choreography and thought-provoking critiques have made him a worldwide fan favourite. Karaty was born just outside New York City to Broadway veterans Tom and Jane Karaty so it's no surprise dance is a huge part of his life. Although his Broadway roots remain a tremendous influence in his life, he chose sneakers and hip-hop over Broadway ballads! Karaty's unique path allowed him to infuse his work with the spirit of classic Broadway inspirations like Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire and trailblazers in the hip-hop and pop culture like Michael Jackson. Karaty then branched out on his own, choreographing Jessica Simpson's “Irresistible” and “Little Bit” music videos and serving as Artistic Director for her 2001 World Tour. He also worked with Kylie Minogue on many of her television appearances, as well as a long list of cutting-edge artists like Justin Timberlake and Usher. Although he quickly became known for his work in the pop music genre, Karaty broadened his reach by choreographing ground-breaking commercials for iPod, Best Buy, Mattel, Miller and many more. Karaty's experience, combined with his gift for comedy, allowed him to move into the film industry where he choreographed “Music and Lyrics,” “Malibu's Most Wanted,” "Did You Hear About The Morgans” and Disney's 2011 release, "Prom." Beyond his role as a Judge on T.V. series around the world, Karaty has his sights set on producing and directing films, television and theater. He is currently in development on several film and television projects and even a Broadway production of his own!" With his wife Natasha, Karaty has two children, a daughter named Quinn, and a son named Daniel.

Where was the sport of bowling invented? Most people think it was aliens who unleashed this distraction upon the world in preparation for an invasion. However, has anybody investigated the possibility that it was actually developed in the city of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA? Some might think that a town with the nickname "Malibu of the Midwest" would be better known for its surfing culture or is that just a front for something more sinister? In this episode we tactfully dodge that question and talk about weirder things.

You don't want to miss this episode with Neil Strauss, ten-time New York Times best-selling author, contributing editor at Rolling Stone, and a former music critic, cultural reporter, and columnist at The New York Times. Neil did the Hoffman Process just before the pandemic hit in very early 2020. In this conversation, he weaves together pivotal moments of and insights of his Process with his deeper life insights. Neil talks about how doing personal healing work is often stigmatized. For him, doing healing work such as the Process is something important to share with others, something to wear as a badge of honor. In this conversation with Neil and Drew, they cover lots of territory on relationships, healing, writing, and the creative process. A prolific writer, Neil generously shares his writing process in depth. He also speaks to how the creative process can be informed by all four aspects of our Quadrinity. Listening to this conversation is almost like taking a short writing class. Toward the end, Neil turns the tables a bit on Drew and asks Drew questions. Be sure to listen to the end for this fun back-and-forth between them. More about Neil Strauss: Neil Strauss is a ten-time New York Times best-selling author; a contributing editor at Rolling Stone; and a former music critic, cultural reporter, and columnist at The New York Times where he won the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award for excellence in music journalism. In 2018, he was honored with the Los Angeles Press Club's Journalist Award for his Rolling Stone 50th anniversary cover story, “Elon Musk: The Architect of Tomorrow.” Coaching and mentoring have always been a passion for Strauss. His love of learning and teaching propels him to speak at conferences all over the world. He formed an exclusive, high-level, international personal growth, networking, and mastermind group called The Society International in 2011. The Society International continues to grow as a one-of-a-kind global group of like-minded people. Neil personally mentors its members, which comprise award-winning artists, international entrepreneurs, tech CEOs, professional athletes, and visionaries who defy categorization. Neil resides in Malibu, California. You can learn more about Neil here and here. More about Neil's Writing and Books: Hollywood hails him as one of the most sought-after ghostwriters in town. His books include The Dirt with Motley Crue, which was hailed by Q magazine as “the most unputdownable rock book of the year, or possibly any year,” while Publishers Weekly cited The Long Hard Road Out of Hell with Marilyn Manson as “possibly the highest-selling rock biography of all time.” A feature-length film of The Dirt was recently released on Netflix, directed by Jeff Tremaine, which propelled the book back into the New York Times bestseller list. His recent book collaboration, Kevin Hart's I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons was both a #1 New York Times best seller and topped the most downloaded audiobooks list at the same time. In his own books, Strauss is renowned for going undercover to explore controversial subcultures. The Game and Rules of The Game, for which he went undercover in a secret society of pick-up artists for two years, topped The New York Times best-selling list and were #1 on Amazon. He then completely revamped his perceptions of dating and relationships when he went undercover to explore trauma, healing, and intimacy disorders with The Truth: An Uncomfortable Book about Relationships. In this best-selling book, he explores the hidden forces that cause people to choose each other, stay together, and break up. As mentioned in this episode: Letters Neil received from Process Graduates: In the Process, students have an opportunity to express gratitude to those who have supported them in their healing journey. Often this gratitude is expressed through writing letters. Carl R. Rogers: American psychologist and one of the founders of the humanistic approac...

Over the years we've seen plenty of celebrities buy and sell second homes in the same city as their primary residence. Lebron James has simultaneously owned homes in the tony Los Angeles enclaves of Brentwood and Beverly Hills. Leonardo DiCaprio has a long history of doing real estate deals all over LA, from Malibu to Los Feliz. Now, Kylie Jenner is the latest A-lister to put her "spare" LA home up for sale. Jenner and her partner Travis Scott reportedly listed their Beverly Hills home for $22M. The curious part? They bought the home in 2018 for $13.4 million, far less than the current listing price. Does the 9,680-square-foot estate warrant such a high price tag? Will they get their price? We discuss it all on a new episode of "House Party" podcast. This week we also discuss Reese Witherspoon's latest real estate win: flipping (one of) her Nashville homes for $7.4 million. And we finish out the episode with a recap of "Selling the OC" episode six, titled "Co-listing Chaos." As the agents at The Oppenheim Group Newport Beach are dealing with the fallout of the "Kayla-Tyler drama," we are treated to an inside look at two gorgeous properties. The first is "Gio's house," a 3,817-square-foot home on Newport Bay, and the second is "Tyler's listing" in Dana Point, a mansion that was on the market for $10M.

Because at the end of the day, that's what's going to, you know, save or kill your deal. At the end of the day, if you've got the wrong data on whether that'd be the rate or the terms, or the horizon. If you didn't plan that out accordingly or properly, or you didn't execute your business plan perfectly to hit that, you might be in for some trouble. Intro 00:26 Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we will teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson 00:38 Lee Fjord is a multifamily syndicator based out of St. Louis, Missouri. He's the founder of green forest capital, and they do value-add multifamily assets in the Midwest and the Southeast. Lee, welcome to the show. Lee Fjord 00:49 Sam, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I'm really excited to jump on the podcast and bring some value to your audience. Sam Wilson 00:58 Oh man, this would be a good time. Three questions I ask every guest who comes on the show in 90 seconds or less? Where did you start? Where are you now? How did you get there? Lee Fjord 01:06 started in the trenches as a property manager. I, you know, am now a full-time investor syndicator with 588 doors under my belt. Roughly five deals have gone full cycle on a 38 unit that doubled in value in 30 months. And I got there by partnering with amazing folks who rely on me and my team to be able to execute, you know, the business plan with them and on the RAF. Sam Wilson 01:36 Love it, man. That's fantastic. And you guys are exclusively focused on the multifamily market. Lee Fjord 01:42 Absolutely. So, bread and butter value at apartments in the Midwest and southeast. That's what we do workforce blue-collar housing. We provide wonderful, clean, modern places for people to live and grow and become the best versions of themselves. Sam Wilson 01:59 When you say workforce housing, it conjures in my mind, a 1960s 1970s build classy c minus needs a lot of work. dispel that myth for me, if you can, please what is workforce housing to you. Lee Fjord 02:15 So workforce, and I consider more blue collar housing where it is, you know, it's the it's the place where the guy who changes your oil lives, it's where you know, his wife or fiance who is the assistant manager at Applebee's lives you know, where they, you know, maybe they start a family or maybe it's the place where you're, you know, a postal worker who is now you know, retired and living on fixed income lives out, you know, the remainder of their years until they need you know, a place to place to go so those are kind of the two major demographics that we provide housing for our people that are eventually going to be homeowners and people who are no longer able to maintain or want to maintain a home but aren't a class people they aren't granite countertops and stainless steel you know appliances type folks, they're you know, regular everyday people age we generally focus on 1980s or newer, we try to buy newer assets because they carry with them a lot lower level of deferred maintenance, you know, so on and so forth. So 1980s or newer, generally is what we try to try to focus on Sam Wilson 03:29 what are you guys doing? I mean, the theme that all of us here probably at every conference every podcast we listen to we hear workforce housing or we hear the term affordable housing, which I don't even know how you define what affordable is but I digress. Affordable housing all these things it's like how are you finding opportunity right now are you finding assets that pencil that then you know are able to meet the demographics needs that you you guys serve? I guess I see a lot of garbage assets out there how are you guys finding the right assets in today's market being as competitive as it is? Lee Fjord 04:07 My trash bin is full of garbage deals that I've just thrown you know, you look you evaluate your view, you toss you look, you evaluate your review you underwrite then you toss you look you evaluate you underwrite your submitted offer you toss it, look you underwriters, you submit an offer, you get approved, then you do inspections, then you toss. I mean, it's a process and it's a full time job of you know, picking the needle out of the haystack the right opportunity. We don't buy deals that Jen that don't work or at least obviously everyone wants to say we do that or you do your best to do that. But at the end of the day, we have some pretty stringent requirements on the type of asset that they were willing to acquire. I agree there's a lot of people that did dumb deals over the course last couple of years. You know, we we focus on the bottom line on the debt you You know, focus on the type of debt that you're placing on the property. Because at the end of the day, that's what's going to, you know, save or kill your deal. At the end of the day, if you've got the wrong debt on whether that'd be the rate or the terms or the horizon, if you didn't plan that out accordingly or properly, or you didn't execute your business plan perfectly to hit that a year, and you might be in for some trouble. So yeah. Sam Wilson 05:25 Absolutely know that. That's super insightful. Tell me about what you guys today is, oh, we're recording this October 25, of 2022. So I'm not sure exactly when this will go live. But for those of you who are listening know that this is relevant as of today. So tell me what are you guys seeing on debt terms right now? And how are you securing that in such a way that it makes sense to you? Lee Fjord 05:48 Each deal is different, but one, and generally, a different type of debt type is applied to each deal type. So what I will say is we don't do any form of bridge debt, we don't do non recourse bridge debt that has a, you know, a shorter term horizon on it. Historically, we do either longer term agency debt options. Or we will do bank debt, where we literally put our name on the line, where we put our deposits on the line with the bank in order to negotiate better quality terms with that local lender, which not a lot of syndicators are willing to do. But we are on the right deals on the right side and the right areas. So bridge bank is how we do it bank that right now we're seeing in the mid to low sixes. So like six and a quarter, six and a half is what I'm getting right now on bank on bank debt quotes. And then on agency, it's slightly lower, we're in the high fives, you know, on on agency debt options, which considering that literally in December, a year ago, less less than a year ago, we locked in a 10 year note below three and a half. So for three and a half to five and three quarters is a big deal. Sam Wilson 07:12 That's a really, really big deal. What has that done to your projections, if anything? Lee Fjord 07:20 so we focus on the value of the deal and what size of debt we can do. So the proceeds on the loan are going to be I don't know, let's call it seven and a half million, the most I'm going to be able to pay for that property is $10 million. Now the brokers right now, which I used to be one with a publicly traded company, right now they're trying to sell buyers on Oh, no, it's just lower leverage, you just the property still worth 12, you just can only get seven and a half and dead on it. So it's still it's still a $12 million property even though it doesn't qualify for the right amount of leverage. Or you can go get bridge that good luck with that, too. So no, prices are coming down sellers are realizing that you you know the value of your asset and is based upon the amount of debt you can take on it. So what's literally cap rates are directly correlated to debt cost. So yeah, those two are projecting five, four, and a quarter four and a half cap rate exits now or next year, or good luck to them. Sam Wilson 08:31 Man that's in this is a point of contention, where I hear this argued both ways. You know, in in Illinois, anybody's necessarily 100%. Right. But I have to agree with you. I mean, it's like it just doesn't make sense. I had somebody shipped me a deal literally this morning. And it was just the the bike cap rate was below the cost of or I guess above the cost of debt, whichever one Oh, look at that. Yeah, he was like wait, like, the day I buy this. I'm paying more for the debt than what this produces like this is I don't care what the value add plan is like, now we're gambling. That's assuming that you can go and execute a value add plan and increase revenues, blah, blah, blah, and then cover that no, like, it's just not going to work. And I think I think there will be a reckoning, it's going to take a minute to use to use a term. But it's it's going to take a while for this to work out. We're finally I think sellers are going oh, I've been sitting on this for a long time and I can't seem to move it was because you're asking too much for it doesn't make sense. Lee Fjord 09:30 Yeah. Well, you know who the last person is to find out how much the property is worth. Right? Who's that? The seller? Sam Wilson 09:40 And I think I think that's painfully true. One thing I want to circle back on is your story of coming from the property management side of things. I've often wondered. And maybe that's the entrepreneur and me but there's always a head scratch when I'm like, wait, you understand everything about this business? Why are you still in the property management side? Now? I've been out, that's the business they built great. But a lot of times I see people working in property management, and they know more about how to own and run a big multifamily property that I would argue. Lee Fjord 10:12 Yeah. Oh, yeah, you learn in the field; that's where I learned, yeah. Sam Wilson 10:17 How did you then get the bug and say, “Wait, I want to, you know, move over to the ownership side and not be in the employee slash property management side?” Lee Fjord 10:26 I was lucky enough to have someone come into my life who kind of brought me under their wing and told me, you know, Lee, this is great, what you're doing, you're learning all these skills, but what are you gonna use them for? And it was like, and then it was, I don't know, and he goes, eventually, you're gonna own things. And I go, Okay, tell me what that's like. And he's like, Well, I got started, essentially, you know, from the bottom where you were. And now, you know, at the time, he was the guy who doesn't even have to bother posting about their plane on on Instagram, or Facebook, because he doesn't care. You think he's got the place and Aspen and the place, beachfront house in Malibu, and literally, he's one of those people that couldn't care less, right. And that's who I would eventually want to be as the guy who, you know, couldn't really care less and learn from him. It was you own things. That's how you, you know, how you become wealthy and not by feeding things or building a, you know, theoretically building a property management business, but you're just building the business, what do you do with businesses, you run them, and you sell them? Right? And you make take that money, go buy things with it? Right? So then you own it. So the only reason why you go vertically integrated is to sell the business and he who builds a vertically integrated business in order to make sure it's done right or whatever. It's like, no, now you're, once again, you're still doing it wrong. You build a business to sell just like you, you know, that's what you build a business for. Sam Wilson 11:58 Yeah, no, that's, that's absolutely right. I think it was. influential book for me was John Warrillow is Built to Sell never read, it was like, Oh, I actually owned a company at that point in time when I read that book, gosh, going on a decade ago now. 13 years no, yeah. Anyway, a while ago, and it was kind of the lightbulb moment was like, Oh, wait, I'm building this so I can sell it like that's that's the that's the point of it is to is to build this to sell it and then setting it up such that I could sell it was was a great a great first move. And that was that was really influential for me how you guys are kind of buying things that are maybe off the beaten path of other investors like a lot of people who you mean if I hear Dallas Fort Worth multifamily syndicator again, it's like that's great. Now you guys are doing it and you're crushing it. But there's more markets than that. And you guys have found a unique way to get into some smaller niche markets maybe that don't have the demographics that a Dallas Fort Worth might, how are you underwriting those in such a way that you feel like it makes sense but then also not just justifying it but then making those opportunities work. Lee Fjord 13:11 So we I love growing tertiary markets outside of, you know, top 40 MSS. That's what I love, where the people live, where the growth is generally happening is you know, where you can really jump in and make a big splash is in those municipalities that are you know, 50 to 100,000 You know, that is where I find you can still buy assets directly from the original owners where you can go find a mom and pop sitting in the office chain smoking marbles, maybe not them but you know somebody I've seen it before. Sure, I haven't bought one from one of those yet but you see it all the time in these smaller markets. You do have to plan accordingly for your exit though you have to determine who your future buyer is ahead of time and what are they or how are they taking out debt what is their most likely level of you know, spread between rate and cap rate that they're willing to you know, adhere to or or apply the purchase towards, and we increase that spreads. So normally the spread is 100 basis points. Sometimes in a major MSA like Dallas or Atlanta that's growing or whatever it might be more like 75 So if you've got 5% debt you can buy a deal it's a five and three quarter cap whatever. So ours is spread a little bit wider it's more like 150 basis point spread. So you know if we are buying it we believe that in debt or is going to be five and a half we plan for a seven cap exit you know and if we do better that's great. But we generally also look for below institutional size investment properties but also above you know your standard mom and pop so we only look generally for 100 Plus, occasionally we'll make a small exception, like on this current, you know, future one that's just below by about, you know, five or six units, whatever. But I've tried to do it with the 70 unit, I've tried to do it with a 76 unit, I've tried to do it with a 38 unit, and it just doesn't work. So you gotta go 100 Plus, or compile multiple assets. And we like, yeah, you know, county see diverse, diverse economy, in, you know, areas that are a little bit more landlord friendly, as well. Sam Wilson 15:32 Yeah, absolutely. Now, have you guys built since you have a history in property management, are you guys vertically integrated now? Lee Fjord 15:37 So we rely on third party, professional management groups to be able to jump in and run the day to day aspect of the asset, you know, well, and execute our business plan. My role is putting together deals, finding creating relationships with investors, and then asset managing the deal, and then executing the business plan, making sure that we are building putting the roofs on properly with the right contractor make sure that all that is done. Management is a very low margin business. Our company they recently took over the 138 unit earns 3.5% of the gross monthly 3.5% of the gross, okay, yep. I mean, that's after all expenses and everything. And that is directly our full profit margin or whatever. But when you add it all up that one property, that one three and a half percent, it barely equates to a full time salary, level of income for that company and profit. But if you eventually you have to scale, you have to have you know, whatever 40 projects that you manage in order to have it make sense, right? Yeah, yeah. Theoretically, one day, but I don't know, I'd rather build a, you know, a brokerage business because quite honestly, the profit margins on brokerage are much, much greater brokerage, or construction or, you know, whatever. Sam Wilson 17:14 That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for taking the time to break that down for us. Tell me what are some things from your experience in property management, maybe that you look for that other people may be would not. Lee Fjord 17:27 they need to have direct experience in managing perfectly similar assets in the exact same market. So if I'm looking for someone to manage my 138 unit in Arkansas, they need to already be managing 100 Plus apartment complexes within a 45 minute radius of that exact property has to because the last thing you want is to bring somebody in who has to create all new relationships with service providers, whatever, staffing, that's the that's the bottom line with management, it literally all comes down to who is your who are the people, the boots on the ground, people making sure to execute the, you know, the top of the funnel business plan? And how well are they trained? And how well are they managed? And how much? You know, how often are they, you know, increasing the amount of training and expectations and all of that? How professional are they? Are they college grad type people? Are the AC certified people? Are they just some guy with a rusty pickup truck and some person who has a residential real estate agent license? Sam Wilson 18:39 Like, understood? No, I think that's that's incredibly helpful. Have you ever had trouble finding a management company that met your criteria? Lee Fjord 18:48 Oh, absolutely. And in that case, I won't go into the market. If I don't have a management company identified who's ready to take over an asset in that map in that township or municipality or location, then we just don't we'll, you know, that's the most important the most important part of the business plan. It's not can I get the money from the investors? Is it in a you know, is it in you know, Texas, like, not every part of Texas is good, by the way, just let you know, there are some some really bad places in Texas to invest your money that aren't very far outside of Dallas or Houston or Austin, like, good luck. So you know, it just so long story short, the manager if you don't have that lined up and you don't have a qualified manager, then we don't go there. We'll just pass on the deal. You know, but usually that's part of the process in establishing the markets that we look for deals is do we already have a manager there ready to go? Sam Wilson 19:47 Yeah, that's that's awesome. And would you recommend that to somebody that that's kind of where they start? Lee Fjord 19:52 Always. Build your team and not just have your you know, like your, like sponsorship group? you're you know, but all your all of your subcontractors, your insurance broker, your property manager, your, you know, your loan broker, make sure that you have someone who is lined up ready to go experienced and doing stuff. And who is ready to go to, you know, go to that property or knows how to do it already. And also a team who qualifies to build your team based upon the types of deals you want to do, or limit the deals you choose to look at to the deals you can take down or have experienced doing. Sam Wilson 20:35 I think that's great. That's great advice. A when you rewind your investing career, what's one thing you've like, you've done really well, that other people should emulate? Lee Fjord 20:44 One thing I've done really well, you know, I, I have done my best to create connected personal relationships with my, with my management staff, with my partners with the subcontractors that I work with. You know, it's this isn't just it is real estate is not, you know, Monday through Friday, nine to five, you get to know people in the evenings and the weekends and, and in the early mornings before the sun has come up. And that's when you get the extra mile out of people and with people you know, they want to see that you are willing to do it. I literally was the guy at my very first decent sized property picking needles out of the bushes with my well not bare hands. I was wearing gloves. But that's just the type of property that you start I started with I started with a D that I turned into a sea. And you know, it started with cleaning out the landscaping and getting rid of all of the the needles and the band aids. Sam Wilson 21:59 Absolutely. It's in your reps in you've got to get your reps in. And that's yeah, kudos to you for for pressing on and getting beyond beyond that stage and then finding a course now your guys's niche in the in the criteria that you've really developed it sounds through a lot of experience, you know, the criteria used to buy and just how you you know work with property management you've shared so much with us here today, just on your investing journey.
