This week's conversation is with Gabriel Wyner, a polyglot, former opera singer, bestselling author of Fluent Forever: How to Learn Any Language Fast and Never Forget It, and founder of the Fluent Forever app, the most funded app in crowdfunding history.Gabe graduated summa cum laude in 2007 from the University of Southern California with dual degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Vocal Arts Performance, and was awarded the Renaissance Scholar's prize for excellence in unrelated disciplines.Following graduation, Gabe moved to Europe to pursue triple Master's degrees in Opera, Lieder, and Voice where found himself quickly needing to learn various new languages as his studies took him from country to country. Gabe began to apply his analytical and engineering talents to developing a system that rapidly builds fluency and in 2012 published a viral article about his groundbreaking formula to fluency, which garnered a publishing offer within two hours.Now, Gabe is fluent in eight languages and teaches tens of thousands of people around the world using his unique language-learning method through The Fluent Forever App.I was curious to learn how Gabe has mastered a skill that many people find incredibly difficult, but this conversation isn't just about how to learn a new language – it's about Gabe's unique frameworks for learning, how to make memories stick, and why, in his opinion, we've been taught the wrong way. -----Please support our partners!We're able to keep growing and creating content for YOU because of their support.

Welcome to the Managing CRE Risk podcast with Jeremy Goodrich. Our guest today is Vadim Rey, a multifamily real estate investor and former US Navy Officer. In our conversation, we dig into a fascinating topic - how the military mitigates and manages risk, and what can we learn from their systems and strategies for our investing journey. You'll hear some ideas on how to set up your operating systems better in your business, make sure that you have a strong purpose behind what you're doing, and positively impact the people around you. Learn more about Vadim and his story at shineinsurance.com/managing-commercial-real-estate-risk! “I joined the duty to really help others and create a positive impact on the world.”   04:05 Vadim joined the US Navy in 2005, right after college. He was an officer for 7 years and just got out of the Navy this year. He joined the military because he wanted to make a positive impact on the world and do something that was not the traditional 9 to 5 corporate job. However, over the years he realized that the military had a lot of corporate culture and bureaucracy as well.   Around 3 years ago, Vadim decided to start investing in multifamily real estate because he was looking for more freedom for himself and his family. “There's a difference between being rich and being wealthy. Having a lot of money doesn't mean much if you don't have the time to do what you really want to do.”   08:58 Risk is something that's talked about every day in the military and everything is about how to reduce risk to an acceptable level. Vadim shares what he's learned from the military about managing and mitigating risk.  Have strong procedures and policies in place and always follow them. Work with people who have common goals as you and build a strong team.   Vadim talks about his Why. He wants to make the world a better place and positively impact as many lives as possible. Through multifamily investing, he can take care of his tenants and it also gives him enough free time to do impactful things. “There's only so much you can do with policies and procedures if you don't have the right people to actually do those policies and procedures.”   25:10 At the end of the conversation, Vadim shares his best pieces of advice on how to mitigate real estate risk. Always make sure to have appropriate insurance in place. Be conservative in your underwriting. Have a strong property management team that really cares about your property. Choose people in your team who have the same goals as you. About our guest, Vadim Rey Born in Ukraine and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Vadim graduated from Tufts University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and received a commission as a US Navy Officer.   In his 5 years of Naval Service, Vadim has led almost 300 service members across 3 different branches of the military in a variety of Joint and Navy missions. Currently, he is serving aboard the USS HARRY S TRUMAN as one of the information systems officers.   Vadim is leaving active-duty service in 2022 and has pivoted to multifamily investing as a means of helping other people live their best lives. He started his portfolio in 2018 with a single-family house which he rents to a Baltimore Regional Housing Program family and is currently house-hacking a duplex. He is a GP in 23 units in Norfolk, VA, and an LP in over 2,100 units across the Southeast.

Jason Roberts Bio Family Background:Born August 5, 1975 in Bryan TX to Mary and George RobertsTwo brothers Michael (8 yrs older) and John (1 year younger)Dad (George) was a college professor at Prairie View A&M University HBCU for many yearsMom (Mary) was a high school teacherGeorge was the first black to receive a PhD in Mathematics from the Texas A&M UniversityGeorge was a twin (brother Roy) and one of 11 children. He was born and raised in East Texas (Carthage) very poor but his parents (Baker and Thelma) stressed education for all of their children.Mary was one of 4 girls (also from Carthage). She met George in college (Wiley - Marshall TX - HBCU) George was a math genius but committed suicide at the age of 65.Mary retired shortly after his death and after 40+ years of teaching.She still lives in Hempstead TX.Currently married (to Tiesha aka Tie) with three children: Jalen (22 - Sr. SDSU), Karis (18 - Fresh Penn State), and Kaden (13 - middle school)Childhood and Young Adult:I grew up in Carthage (rural east Texas) prior to moving to a small town outside of Houston (Hempstead) shortly after my dad started teaching at Prairie View - 5th grade.I have fond memories of growing up with 30+ first cousins, working and fishing with my favorite uncle during the summers, helping my dad who also raised cattle.Work ethic was a key part of how I was raised. All of my role models (mom, dad, uncles, aunts, etc.) were always working, all the time!After moving in the 5th grade I went to school in a small town next to Prairie View (Waller). Graduated from there and then went on to college at the University of Texas at Austin.Majored in Mechanical Engineering, but realized later that I didn't want to be an engineer, so I got a minor in business.Was very active on campus (president and step master of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc, active with Dean of Students Office, etc.)Met my wife (Tiesha aka Tie) in college.Had our first child shortly after graduating and getting married in 1999 (son - Jalen)Early Career:First job out of college was as a Production Facilitator with Johnson and Johnson (Ethicon) in West Texas ( San Angelo). Jalen was actually born there.Worked the 2nd shift in a production plant where they manufactured sutures, bone mesh and other medical products. Lead a team of employees that pieced together the sutures.Loved it there, but moved to Houston after one year to be closer to family and after a difficult pregnancy.Took a job in Houston with then Anderson Consulting (now Accenture). Started as a Tibco Developer (programming) before eventually moving into more business consulting in addition to systems integration consulting.Enjoyed the fast pace consulting environment and the learning, achieving early promotions to both Consultant and Manager levels.However, the fast pace took a toll on my personal life. Especially after our daughter was born, so I stopped traveling and took a local project in Houston.Shortly after that, my dad committed suicide (February 13, 2006). To this day, I feel that if it was more acceptable to discuss and be open with how you feel (especially as a black man and our challenges) that my dad would be here today.His death affected me more than I realized which I would come to understand later. It was also the catalyst for change in my early career. Shortly after, I decided to leave consulting and move into an industry - to allow me to go back to school and get my MBA. It was there that I met one of my lifelong mentors (Darily Jones). She was one of very few Black women executives in oil and gas in Houston at the time. Encouraged me to follow through on my plans to get my MBA and even supported me at work. Even went out of her way to get the company to cover more of the costs for my MBA (at Rice University).  She has helped me tremendously over the years and we still stay in touch to this day.Mid Career:After getting my MBA an opportunity presented itself to use this new found knowledge with a larger company. So I made the transition to the waste industry (i.e., trash and recycling) in 2011. Becoming a Director of Innovation and Business Optimization at Waste Management.The guy that hired me is another one of my lifelong mentors and someone who has helped me grow - Dave Murphy (aka Murph). He specifically hired me into his small - but high profile - innovation group because he wanted someone who did not grow up in the industry and was not white. Get that, a white dude who understood the power of diversity, and actually sought it out.Murph was a huge part of my growth and development at WM. He made sure I had opportunities to interact with the C-Suite, and eventually honored his promise to me to get me P&L responsibility.My first P&L responsibility was running a small retail product business called Bagster (~ $50 Million business).  Loved having the opportunity to run a business and make strategic decisions that impacted the top line. Not just run a department that was a cost center - which in my experience (at the time), was where you would find the black folk in leadership. Not in operations or sales, but in support functions.After my success with Bagster and an internal leadership development program, I was promoted to General Manager and asked to move to California to learn frontline operations in depth (2016).Before I left for California from Houston, I remember Murph telling me that “If I didn't figure out what made me tick, I would kill myself”. I didn't understand then the power of his words, but I would later.This move is truly what provided me the opportunity to see frontline operations upfront and personal. It's also from this experience that I got the idea to start my own company. More on that later.After moving to CA and running a large collections operations (i.e., 100+ drivers and staff that pick up your trash, recycling, and green waste) I quickly realized that the men and women doing the lion's share of the work were not treated as the valued assets that they were.  And this didn't sit easy with me. I struggled internally with whether I could continue to climb in a company knowing what I now knew. I felt like my values didn't align with the trajectory I was on, and on top of that, I was set up to fail. But I also felt so much pressure to keep climbing that corporate ladder, since I was the ONLY black executive in operations at the time. That, along with the stress of transitioning to operations with very little support, took a real toll on me.In fact, at the age of 42 (Oct 7 2017), I had a stroke while at Big Bear vacationing with my family and friends. I was airlifted to Loma Linda hospital where I spent several days in the hospital. Luckily I had no long-term damage, but I remember sitting in the hospital thinking that I needed to make a change or I would die.  Murph's words to me before I left Houston all of a sudden became crystal clear.Shortly after my stroke, I decided to see a therapist for the first time. This was probably the best decision of my career, and potentially life saving. She helped me understand “what made me tick” and how my childhood played a huge role in what was happening in the current day. She helped me better manage the stress and tension of life. To this day, I credit her not only with saving my life, but with making me a better, more self-aware, compassionate person.Current Profession (Story Behind Frontline Careers):A few months after my stroke, I was at a golf tournament in Scottsdale AZ (Waste Management Open). There I had the opportunity to hear Mike Rowe (the TV celebrity) speak. He virtually called out business leaders in the room for devaluing the skill trades and putting too much emphasis on college degrees. His words resonated with my experience on the frontlines. It was at that moment that I had the idea to start what would later become Frontline Careers. The idea: help frontline workers find companies that did understand their value and worth. After having the idea, I first called my wife and then a long-time friend (Ari) with whom I had countless conversations lamenting my displeasure with the work environment and how folks were treated. His background as a PhD IO Psychologist was perfect for what I envisioned.They both loved the idea, and after a year and half getting my affairs in order, I made the decision to leave Waste Management, and co-found Frontline Careers with Ari (Jan 2020).  Tie helped us as an outside consultant initially (via her non-profit consulting company) but we later brought her on as a co-founder given her direct and tireless involvement from the early stages of the company. Tie currently serves as Chief Digital Officer (she's got mad marketing skills), Ari as our Chief Operating Officer (he's one hell of a scientist), and myself as CEO.Shortly after we founded the company, the world stopped moving due to COVID, but we did not. We used the time to launch our website, conduct market research, and eventually build and launch beta versions of our job site and proprietary frontline workplace assessment.Today, we have a growing social impact startup focused on connecting frontline workers looking for more with companies that offer more. We use our proprietary Frontline FriendlySM assessment to get anonymous feedback from frontline employees (only) in an effort to determine if a business or company truly does care and invest in their frontline staff.  Those that are, earn our official Frontline FriendlySM company certification which is good for one year.In addition to our certification, we also offer a job site that only features frontline jobs offering more than just pay.We recently certified the first-ever Frontline FriendlySM company (Little Cakes Kitchen in Vista CA) and are in the process of beginning more assessments in San Diego.For years I have thought of writing a book titled “Corporate America is not for Me”. Speaking to the corp america experience as a black man.  However, the point of the book is that Corp America actually is for us (hence the “not” is struck through), because it provides the perfect opportunity to learn on someone else's dime and build the skills necessary to gain the freedom you need and desire.At least that has been my experience. My time working as a supervisor in a plant, learning to code as an analyst, planning and leading large projects as a consulting manager, overseeing a p&l with a large marketing budget, and even running frontline operations consisting of hundreds of hard-working men and women,has all better prepared me to lead my own company.And most importantly, my personal mental health journey has also equipped me with the tools necessary to handle the inevitable pitfalls and setbacks you suffer as a startup founder.  PersonalEmail: jason@frontlinecareers.comFacebook: facebook.com/jason.roberts.14473426Instagram: jjroberts06Clubhouse: @jasonjrobertsLinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/jason-jerome-roberts Frontline CareersWebsite: frontlinecareers.comEmail: info@frontlinecareers.comTwitter: @FrntlineCareersFacebook: facebook.com/frontlinefriendlyInstagram: frontlinecareersLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/frontline-careers

In this episode, Jason Elliott talks about how he used to struggle with sleep and how it affected his work and personal life. He shares his steps to improve his sleep and how it has helped him in his business. Jason Elliott is the co-founder and President of Perfectly Snug — the sleep solution company behind the popular dual-climate controlled Smart Topper and app. The Smart Topper keeps the user and their partner at an ideal temperature all night, resulting in a deep, restful sleep. The integrated technology senses body temperature and auto-adjusts the amount of cooling or warming to ensure each person stays comfortable. Users can also set preferences and sleep/wake times for each person using the Perfectly Snug App. How did Perfectly Snug come to be? For years Jason was perpetually tired even though he was in bed for nine to ten hours, while his wife was well rested with seven to eight hours. It took him an hour to fall asleep, and would toss and turn all night, waking up too hot, too often. Poor sleep affected his mood, energy level, performance at work as an engineer, and ultimately, his health. After speaking with his friend, co-founder and CEO Marty Furse, he realized there was a gap in the market for a sleep solution that would solve his problem. The two engineers developed many prototypes that Jason tested every night at home with his wife. He also instrumented his bed with sensors and started studying his sleep and skin temperature, which led to the evolution of the technology for what would become the Smart Topper by Perfectly Snug. Jason has a BASc in Systems Engineering from the University of Waterloo and MASc in Mechanical Engineering from UBC, as well as extensive product development experience in various industries, including fuel cell technology, laser optics, precision mechanics, and solar energy, and expertise in manufacturing from start to finish.

Italy is at the forefront of major utilities worldwide realizing its vision of the future of electricity. The massive utility aims to be carbon neutral by 2040. In this episode of Grid Talk, host Marty Rosenberg talks with Antonio Cammisecra, who's the head of the Enel Grids within the Enel Group in Italy. Enel Grids operates a massive 1.5 million miles of predominately distribution lines. “Without a doubt we are the most digitized distribution company in the world,” said Cammisecra. “We are the absolute leader in this field.” It is all part of a sweeping, utility sector transformation.“It took us 20 years to completely digitalize the Italian grid for which we are very well advanced. And we had several waves of digitalization so, now we are at the third generation of digital meter. We have achieved basically two things: the capability to open up a much more modern electricity market because the digitization of the metering itself is the beginning of a much more modern market so you can have hourly pricing for example.” “We understood there was a new era approaching to the industry and you cannot, let's say, survive or prosper or lead the industry without deep profound change in the way you wanted to stay in that industry, which, of course, conceives a different approach to innovation and to sustainability.”Antonio Cammisecra became Head of the Enel Grids Business Line on October 1, 2020. Prior to that, he was the Sole Director of Enel Green Power and Director of the Africa, Asia, and Oceania region. He joined the International Division of Enel Group in 1999 and has served in multiple positions.Cammisecra studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II, graduating with first class honors in 1996. He received an MBA from Milan's Bocconi University in 2004.

On this episode we discuss: Estate Planning Teaching Finance to Your Kids The 6 Key Behaviours of Investing For places to listen, places to connect on social media, to be a guest, collaborate with or sponsor DTE visit: https://linktr.ee/DisruptTheEveryday James' Website: https://www.woodallwealthmanagement.com/ About James James Woodall is the Founder and CEO of Woodall Wealth Management. James' passion for Wealth Management has always been around, as a child he was fascinated by the stock market in Junior Achievement and had always been drawn to investing. He graduated from Texas Tech with a degree in International Economics and Finance after studying Mechanical Engineering and realizing it wasn't for him. Moving into the Finance industry he fell in love with Wealth Management and worked with advisors for a decade when he realized his passion for financial planning and becoming an advisor himself. Still dealing with the effects of his Grandfather's passing and seeing the impact of estate plans going awry, he earned his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® certification from the CFP® Board, using the Southern Methodist University's program. The desire to build a firm focused on planning for generations so that others avoid the family issues that derive from poor estate planning pushed him to open his firm in 2022. When James isn't working you can find him reading, cooking excessively large meals for family and friends, or slowly learning to golf. More About James in his words I started working in the back office of a large financial institution a decade ago focusing clients of all types to help them review their tax forms and review cost basis issues. Initially I was not a fan of the role, however sitting in that seat allowed me to see what worked and what didn't work, from large family offices ($50 million+) to people starting out, and I always kept in mind what they did. Then I moved to supporting advisors and was always stunned at how little some advisors knew, not just from an operational POV, but an investment POV as well. From there I worked in product development supporting advisors and that's when I fell in love with being an advisor. I moved to the advisory side of that large brokerage firm and loved the clients and realized that I wasn't being an advisor, I was being an asset gatherer. From there I moved to a small Wealth Management shop and worked 16+ hr days and studied for my CFP, learning everything there is to learn. At that point the firm was sold and I moved into being a consultant for advisors at a small broker dealer. The call of being an advisor and building a firm the right way to truly spend time with the clients and their families was too much and I started Woodall Wealth Management. My focus is on Family Stewards and Family Businesses to help provide them financial peace of mind. The reason why I focus on this niche is when my Grandfather passed there was no estate plan, causing issues within the family that still last to this day. So my mission is to help my clients avoid that from the outset and its been extremely rewarding and fulfilling.

He began his entrepreneurial journey while studying Mechanical Engineering at Queen's University and continued through graduation as a consultant for ZS.During that time, Nabeil advised Fortune 100 companies on sales force effectiveness and strategy and saw first-hand the pain of poor enterprise sales compensation management. He saw a gap in the market and moved quickly to gather a team and found Forma.ai in 2016.A word from our sponsor:At Ripple, we manage all of our fund expenses and employee credit cards using Jeeves. The team at Jeeves helped get me and my team setup with physical and virtual credit cards in days. I was able to allow my teammates to expense items in multiple currencies allowing them to pay for anything, anywhere at anytime. We weren't asked for any personal guarantees or to pay any setup or monthly SaaS fees.Not only does Jeeves save us time, but they also give us cashback on our purchases including expenses like Google, Facebook, or AWS every month. New users can earn up to 3% cashback for their first 90 days.The best part is Jeeves puts up the cash, and you settle up once every 30 days in any currency you want, unlike some other corporate card companies that make you pre-pay every month. Jeeves also recently launched its Jeeves Growth and Working Capital initiative for startups and fast-growing companies to enable more financial freedom for companies.

About Garrett:“In football, as in life, the most important person on the field is often the least noticed – the left tackle: he protects the quarterback's blind side.” As a quarterback at Stanford University, this simple lesson laid the early foundation for Garrett's servant-leadership philosophy: “It's the people you work with every day who determine your ability to make an impact”.After achieving a degree in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford, and despite an early desire to jump right into a Silicon Valley start-up after graduation, Garrett's passion to serve led him to San Diego to become an officer in the Navy SEALs. During this time, he was also selected to become an Olmsted Scholar (similar to a Rhodes Scholarship). After learning Hebrew from scratch, he earned his master's degree in Cybersecurity at Tel Aviv University…in Hebrew! Living there in Startup Nation, he learned another critical lesson, “Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world.”You might see two common denominators in these life shaping experiences – a love of high performing teams and fearlessness in the face of challenges. Garrett and his co-founder Kyle run headlong into the fray when most would hesitate. “If a problem is too hard for everyone else, it's probably just right for us”. And for that reason, he is wholly committed to solving America's elusive housing crisis.Links From The Podcasthttps://agorus.com/https://agorus.com/contact/https://www.linkedin.com/company/agorus/https://www.facebook.com/agorusbuildhttps://www.peer2peerrealestate.com/@Willliamp2pre (twitter)facebook.com/peer2peerrealestatehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/williemorales/Book(s)recommendedPurpose driven life- Rick WarrenGood to great- Jim Collins Thank you Garrett for being on the podcast.What did you think about today's subject?

I developed my love for athletics at four years old playing baseball. I played baseball for fourteen years, and it was my dream to play major league baseball. Along the way, our coaches made it clear that strength and conditioning would be integral to taking our performance to the next level. When I reached high school, I fell in love with the training and offseason aspect of my sport, and sought to learn as much as I could about strength training. Our team's strength coach was my first mentor, and he quickly realized how much I gravitated toward strength training. He quickly pointed me in the direction of a world of information that would change my life forever. Fast forward to senior year of high school, during which I competed in my first powerlifting meet. I was hooked. My freshman year I began coaching powerlifters at MIT for free to practically apply the fundamentals I had learned over the years. I mentored under phenomenal coaches and amassed a sizable team during undergraduate. I quickly realized that I was really good at what I did, and my critical thinking skills developed during my academic career would lend themselves to my coaching success. I quickly began to dedicate an equal amount of time to developing as a coach as I did as a student. What started as a team of friends, grew into a team of lifters I would coach at Raw Nationals, the Arnold and even IPF Worlds. I have made it a goal to become a fully comprehensive coach, immersing myself in both the educational world and practical world. I have learned from some of the best coaches in powerlifting, movement science and pain management, as well as immersing myself in as much in-person coaching and meet day handling environments as I can. To date, I have coached over a hundred lifters, and have a team of incredible lifters that features national champions, world champions and medalists, and record holders. I have recently had the privilege of being able to hire incredible coaches, and put them through a rigorous mentorship program, to ensure they learn as much as they can, and are challenged to think critically. I truly believe we are capable of guiding lifters of all abilities, background, and personalities toward their goals. In this podcast, Sean and I discuss the historical events that led up to modern power lifting preparation. Special consideration was placed on discussing programming for the sport.   Founder of Nori Powerlifting #2 Ranked USAPL Men's Raw Open 83kg USAPL and IPF Powerlifting Coach since 2015 B.S.
