“I do think that the relationships we have, especially around work, are so important. And there is great research that shows that those relationships and being able to be vulnerable with at least a few people are what, A) keep us loyal to the jobs that we have, and B) keep us happy in the work that we're doing, and C) help propel us to the next level of achievement in the things that we are hoping to achieve.” -Inga T.

“Outsource what you're not passionate about and the afters or the effects of outsourcing what you're not passionate about allows you to have more space to think top-level in your business.”Lynsey Cowan, the founder of Elite VA, joins us on episode 103 of Master Delegator to share how she was able to make £10k a month consistently with the help of virtual assistants. Follow along as she explains how and what outsourcing to virtual assistants can do for your business.How You Can Have Consistent £10K monthsHave a correct mindset Having the right mindset is one of the most important steps you can take to get where you want to be in your professional or personal life.  It's all about maintaining a growth mentality at all times.Get a coach After you've established the proper mindset, the next step you'll most likely need to take is to have a coach to provide you with the support you need. Coaches can help you focus even more on your goals.Focus on what you're passionate about and outsource what you're not passionate about In life, it's important to allow yourself to have ultimate freedom or flexibility; you should only focus on what you are passionate about and outsource the rest. Doing so will save you time and keep you from wasting your energy on things that will not help you grow as a person or your business. Remember, that you need to create space in your life to be able to think clearly.Self-belief  Another important element is to believe in yourself, to feel that you are skilled and worthy of what you have as of now and stay away from the naysayers because there's always a lot out there, but not all of them can do what you can do. Don't focus on what everyone else is doing, believe in your gifts.Outsourcing to Virtual AssistantsMany people are hesitant to outsource because of their budget, and this particular issue prevents business owners from doing so. Lynsey believes that if someone claims they don't have the budget, they will convince themselves that they don't and to avoid thinking about it, "jump into outsourcing before you even have the budget," as Lynsey puts it. What matters is that you stop wasting money on things that don't generate income. And as previously stated, VAs are experts in specific fields, so when you consider what you may potentially outsource to them, you're basically spending less labor cost because they can accomplish the task more efficiently and quickly than you can.VA's Can Do Anything That's Business-FocusedVirtual Assistants can help you with everything from content creation to SOPs, podcasts, newsletters, branding, modules, and blogs, as well as creating an online presence on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, and communicating with your target audiences to build relationships. Virtual Assistants have an almost endless list of things they can do for your business, but it all depends on how well and clearly you delegate to them. They must understand what your brand is, who your target audience is, what your specialty is, and what you're promoting. Another thing to consider is hiring a VA who meets your requirements.About Lynsey CowanLynsey Cowan is a Systems Specialist and tech enthusiast who started Elite VA Limited in November 2015, an online business management and virtual assistant service for heart-centered female entrepreneurs.Connect with Lynsey and her company  Elite VA Limited here:Website:https://eliteva.co.uk/http://lynseycowan.com/ LinkedIn:https://www.linkedin.com/in/eliteva/

“...and I was also tired of going to meetings where I had an opinion or someone else had an opinion, as a physician, on how the business was going, and you were literally told like, ‘Hey, just take your stethoscope and go back to the clinic. Go do what you really know how to do.'” -Ihuoma Emenuga, MD, MPH, MBA In today's episode, Dr Jen Barna talks with Dr. Ihuoma Emenuga. Dr. Emenuga walks us through her story, starting with her medical education at the University of Nigeria, then a move from Tunisia to London to pursue her MPH at University of London with her four children in tow, and then a move back to Tunisia followed by her move to the United States. Based on the needs of one of her children, she moved to the United States where she completed her residency training at Howard University, her MBA at University of Maryland, and continues to practice medicine, teach and do work in public health. Throughout her life she has shown bravery, strength and a love for medicine and knowledge. Now she is tackling the business of medicine in order to make healthcare work for everyone with Vie Health, to benefit patients, physicians and the bottom line of the organizations she serves. You won't want to miss this episode! Tune in to hear an inspiring story of perseverance, believing in oneself, and raising resilient kids. Ihuoma Emenuga, MD, MPH, MBA Dr. Emenuga is the Medical Director at Chase Brexton Health Care Randallstown, where she provides clinical leadership, supervisory and management oversight to clinical providers and their teams while providing direct patient care. She is also on the faculty of The Residency Fellowship in Health Policy at George Washington University, where she teaches Health Economics and the Business of Medicine to physicians.

About Harvey:Harvey is the founder of Growth Properties Group, a small group of companies. My why is to live on my terms and my mission is to help as many people live on their terms through property as possible. With education, portfolio building and property management. I've built my property portfolio and businesses in the Northeast of England, whilst living in the south, remotely allowing me to spend time with my family and travel regularly. Having built up the systems and team to run from my phone and parts on autopilot. I now focused on helping others excel on their property journeys and build a remote investment lifestyle for themselves through group and 1:1 coaching programs. I help people to live on their terms through property & Coaching and portfolio building. I've spent the last 7 years working out how to run my property business virtually from my phone. Using tech to run my business while I've been travelling. About your host, Tej:Tej graduated from King's' College London with a BSc Biochemistry in 2014, he then pursued a career in Medical Education and Marketing. Soon after his second job… he was fired! A moment of relief and freedom was what he felt, not sure what his mother felt when he told her he was jobless at 23…He then went in search of a more ethical path, a business he could set up where the reward was equal to the work put in. “If they are making pounds, why am I making pennies?” - was his thought process, not happy with slow progression and bureaucracy (& having to wear smart shoes everyday). This lead him to opening a Recruitment business (not sure where the ethics went) which doubled in profit every year, for 4 years. He hated it. Golden handcuffs they call it.Fortunately, he used the cash he'd built up from that business, to educate himself in Property Investing. Soon, he'd stopped the business and transitioned into Property Investment full time. He then had a slow start -Purchasing 15 properties in his first 9 months, using over £650,000 of Investor Finance, he built a £1,200,000 property portfolio and created £30,000 of profit from flips. This gave him ‘financial freedom', but it was the most stressful period of his life. Growing quickly is very painful.Let's not forget that his Podcast grew to be the most-reviewed UK Property Podcast, peaking at 4,000 unique downloads per episode.His Podcast (Tej Talks) now sits at 660,000 downloads in over 100 countries and has 489 reviews, rated 5/5.

We had an idea, we had a dream, we had an expectation and you know, grief is really healthy.” -Master Certified Life Coach Jill Farmer   In today's episode, Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer and Coach Gabriella Dennery MD talk us through the healthy way to deal with not getting that promotion you've been waiting for or other major disappointments in your life. We have all dealt with disappointment, it's a natural part of life.

“It's important, you know, if someone is telling you their story about a situation that has happened or has occurred, instead of writing them off or blowing them off or talking over them, just listen. You know, hear them out.” -Tamika Cross MD   In today's episode, Dr. Jen Barna speaks with Dr. Tamika Cross, OB Gyn and author of the book, “What a Doctor Looks Like.” Dr. Cross knew at a young age that she wanted to pursue a career in medicine as a physician, but did not exactly know the steps it would take to achieve her dream. Through seizing opportunities, mentorship, hard work and perseverance, she was able to navigate many obstacles, including those related to racism, to ultimately achieve her childhood dream of becoming a physician.   One of many instances that highlight the extra burden of racism and implicit bias occurred when Dr. Cross was on a flight after attending a friend's wedding, 30,000 feet in the air attempting to offer medical assistance to an unresponsive passenger, only to be denied access by crew members who did not believe she was a doctor. After sharing her story publicly, and gaining international media attention, Dr. Cross sparked a viral movement of thousands of medical professionals from all over the world that joined in solidarity posting pictures of themselves with the hashtag #whatadoctorlookslike. By exemplifying the diversity amongst doctors, this movement challenges the myth that there is one prototype for what a doctor looks like. In addition to starting an international conversation of bias in the workplace, Dr. Cross' story became an integral part of diversity and inclusion training at schools and companies coast to coast. You can purchase “What A Doctor Looks Like” by Tamika Cross MD here    Dr. Cross currently lives and practices medicine in the Houston area and is from Detroit. She is co-owner of Serenity Women's Health & Medspa, which launched in the middle of the pandemic.    Find full transcripts of DocWorking: The Whole Physician Podcast episodes on the DocWorking Blog  How many coaches do you think your favorite actors and athletes have worked with over the years in order to achieve such extraordinary success?   What if you had a team of trusted thinking partners, experienced coaches who have helped hundreds of physicians overcome obstacles and who know what works?    What if you were part of a community of like-minded physicians from across the nation, across specialties and career stages?

41. Building a Team: Bringing On Full-Time Employees

This week, we've got another great episode about the next step in building a team: bringing on full time employees. Before you run away, hear me out! Although I know you may not be in the place to be making these hires right now, you will be one day. And setting up a strong foundation now will make all the difference when you are ready to start making those hires! Last week, we talked about how tohttps://rebeccaricephoto.com/2021/11/01/ep-40-what-to-do-before-you-hire-tips-for-building-a-team/ ( prep for building a team), so I think this is another great foundational piece you need when building the team of your dreams! Before we dive into all of that though, I want to share my new FREE guide with you: http://www.Rebeccaricephoto.com/3K-minis (My $3K Mini Sessions Blueprint.) It's a step-by-step guide of what to do to make $3,000 on your next mini sessions... all on ONE date. Whether you've hit that goal before or just want to see if there's other ideas to try, grab this free guide. It's jam packed with tons of great information for you! And now... back to our topic of the day: bringing on full time employees! How do you know if you're ready?It can be tricky to know if you're ready to hire someone full-time. But, a good rule of thumb is to look at who you have working with you already. If you've got a few subcontractors working for you (maybe your editor, virtual assistant, and social media manager) but you're still ready to continue scaling, it might be time to consider a full time hire. While you have these other people working under you and you realize you could afford to bring someone on for 40 hours a week, you might also be in the position to consider that hire. I recommend having 3-6 months of that person's salary in the bank before you commit to anyone though, so that if something happens, you're protected! It's not just for me: it's for them. I want them to know that I'm taking the responsibility of hiring them seriously and I want them to feel secure in their choice to work with a small business. So to me, that's the first step of knowing you're ready to hire someone full time! Who do you hire?There's two places to hire from: IN the industry and OUTSIDE of the industry. There's pros and cons to both. When you hire within the industry, you have someone that's more likely to be familiar with the software and systems you use. That's definitely a plus! But, there's something to be said for training someone from the ground up. In my business, we've hired three other people beyond my husband who are full-time and we've trained every single one of them. For us, it made sense because we have really specific processes we want to use and want them to know. Not to mention, our employees are amazing and super smart so it didn't take long to train them! Additionally, when you hire someone who isn't the expert in what they do, it's a little bit cheaper. Again, you have to train and teach them, but for us, that made more sense. Now, if you're wondering where to go to find these amazing people, make sure you join https://rebeccaricephoto.com/behind-the-lens (Behind the Lens) and watch my masterclass on Outsourcing! I share all sorts of tips, including where I go to find the amazing team members I have! What do you look for when you hire?For me, I've always hired for personality and trained for skill. It's more important that I find the RIGHT people for my team. Teaching them to do a job is easy! We're big on knowing our team members strengths and weaknesses here, and using that to our advantage as well. It's no secret that my full-time employees' positions have changed and evolved since they started, but it's all been for the better. We've actually had everyone take the Strengths Finder test so we can make sure we're doing what really aligns with who they are and what makes them unique. It's been really eye-opening for all of us and allowed us to put our employees in their zone of genius, which is truly the best for all

Kristyn lives in New Hampshire with her husband, kids and dogs. She started Wash Street with her co-owner Laura four years ago, and their goal is to make laundry services as accessible as meal kits, house cleaning and oil changes. Kristyn remembers struggling to get ahead in her household. She identified laundry having the most pickups and putdowns and decided to outsource the service. She tried to find a company to outsource this service to and couldn't find one so she decided to start one.When her kids were young she bought a laundromat and right before the pandemic it started to grow. They were able to stay open as an essential business. They've been on a growth streak and have dealt with capacity constraints. They offer pickup and delivery services for their customers in addition to standard laundromat services.The most profitable customer is outside of the city and generally has large families. One of her growth goals is to service and support the customers outside the city. Brooke and Kristyn talk about how important outsourcing has been for both of their businesses and how their own companies started from a need they identified in their own lives. They also discuss Kristyn's greatest challenge, favorite quote, her biggest failure and how she learned from it. During the slow season, she is surveying and trying to gather information on potential contacts and future clients for the beginning of 2022.

The behind-the-scenes aspect of almost any job is surprising, and that of a working, professional artist is no exception. So much goes on that has little if anything to do with making art. Maintaining a studio, tracking inventory and expenses, photographing work, keeping up a website, engaging with social media, answering email, staying in touch with galleries, and handling countless other details of art practice—all of these tasks are time-consuming, and each requires its own skillset. Most artists do all of this on their own without assistance, learning as they go, and over time they find what works for them. Today we look at the frustrations and rewards for artists as they constantly change out their many hats. Considering the range of tasks we deal with as artists, it's natural that most of us are deficient in some areas, whether those are record-keeping, organizing, being active on social media, creating a website, consistent gallery correspondence or other tasks. While it may appear that other artists are on top of every aspect of their practice, few conquer all tasks and at the same time make good art without having help. To be realistic we need to let go of perfectionistic tendencies and accept a standard of "good enough" for some of the demands on our time. We can also delegate tasks to others if they can be outsourced, although many cannot. Sometimes we do have to face things that need to be done by ourselves, but with which we have no experience or background. In those times, a positive attitude about learning new things is helpful. You may surprise yourself with newfound abilities --for example being able to handle new technologies or teach your first workshop. Asking for advice from a friend with experience is a good first step when faced with a new situation that requires action. As artists our main role is to make art, and that is the most important hat to wear, always. The rest of the demands on our time that support our art practice need to be dealt with as best we can. When feeling overwhelmed by tasks and things to do, a good way to shift out of stress is to go and do your art, even for a little while. It will remind you of what you love about the life of an artist. The rest of it is simply what needs to be done to support this opportunity.

“You know, the government has told us that we have to put children in car seats, we have to wear seat belts, we can't drive when we're drunk. There are lots of ways in which the government has intervened on behalf of public health, and this is really one of the most important ones that we've ever had.” Dr. Michelle (Shelley) Fiscus, Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Pediatrics District IV (Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina), Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt University, former Medical Director of the Tennessee Department of Health's Vaccine-Preventable Diseases and Immunization Program In today's episode, Dr. Jen Barna speaks with Dr. Michelle Fiscus to hear a cautionary tale that is very relevant to the times we are living in today.

“Obviously you want to be cash flow positive and a little bit more than positive is great. That's more attainable in some areas than others. That's easier to do in St. Louis than it is to do in New York, right?” -Jeff Steinmann   In today's episode, Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer talks with Realtor and founder of Essential StL, Jeff Steinmann about the truth about real estate investing. Have you been looking for another source of income or does the idea of passive income really appeal to you? Have you been considering investing in real estate in order to realize your dreams of financial independence? If so, in this episode, Jeff gives us an honest look at what we are getting ourselves into as real estate investors, and gives us his top tips for real estate investing. We learn about the multiple ways to start investing in real estate. Tune in to find out which one may be right for you.    Jeff is the founder of Essential StL and a Realtor. In 1999, Jeff moved to St. Louis. He immediately fell in love with the city, but saw the problems.... bad press, bad reputation and lack of pride. When he got to know his neighbors, he saw a vibrant community of wonderful, loving people who care about each other and look out for each other.    He eventually combined his passion for St. Louis with his passion for architecture, love of people and corporate background to start Transform StL officially in 2016, which would become Essential StL in May of 2021.    Jeff and his son live in the Shaw neighborhood and when not working, he enjoys the bars and restaurants of St. Louis, Minecraft, reading, watching documentaries and everything outdoors.   Learn more about Jeff Steinmann or contact him here https://www.essentialstl.com   Books mentioned in the show:  Rich Dad Poor Dad: 20th Anniversary Edition: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!  By Robert T.

Torn between parenthood and a successful career? Not anymore! Tune in to how you can have it all and live your life while building a truly fulfilling career.   Episode Introduction:  If you're a business owner who often finds yourself overwhelmed, this episode is for you. Our guest today, Abbey Ashley talks about the benefits and importance of outsourcing work to create a work-life balance. She also shares the best practices to outsource work, even if it's your first time.   Episode Summary:  Abbey Ashley walks us through her journey of starting her business as a Virtual Assistant who was looking to do something to kill time and make some extra cash to now owning The Virtual Savvy, a brand that has taught thousands of virtual assistants how to run a successful online business. She shares her challenges, how she overcame them, how she grew her own team, why outsourcing is important, and also some super effective tips to do so starting today.   Main Takeaways: When work starts to feel overwhelming and consumes your thoughts, sit with a journal to write down all about it. Just putting actual words to your feelings will help a great deal. Challenges are an indicator of growth so they'll always be there. The important thing is for you to become someone who's comfortable with facing their fears at different levels in life. Outsourcing can be really scary for multiple reasons but make sure you make an intentional effort to delegate work when you can and focus on your zone of genius. If delegation is difficult for you, start by outsourcing a one-time project to get in the practice of someone else taking over a task. How to outsource effectively: Start by outsourcing to tools first. Take a look at your outsourcing budget (after paying yourself first). Make a list of the tasks that you need to outsource. Find a VA that aligns with your brand and cultural values. Always choose action over perfection.   Recommended Resources: Hire a VA: https://www.thevirtualsavvy.com/hire/ Join the HelloSavvy Waitlist: https://hellosavvy.com/   Fun Facts About Abbey Ashley: Some of her favorite books are Clockwork: Design Your Business to Run Itself by Mike Michalowicz and From 6 to 7 Figures: Simplify Your Business, Gain Your Time Back, Scale Faster Than Ever by Austin Netzley Some of her favorite business tools are Canva, Dubsado, ConvertKit, Kajabi, Slack, and Loom.   Help us mentor other entrepreneurs through the power of storytelling by rating us and leaving a positive review on Apple Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/law-chat-with-girija/id1528580730   Get the FREE Five Day Legal Audit: https://yourcontractbuddy.com/5-day-free-legal-audit-challenge/   Join Law Chat for Entrepreneurs Free Facebook Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/449334726047480   Find Abbey Ashley: Website: https://www.thevirtualsavvy.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thevirtualsavvy/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/abbeyashley Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheVirtualSavvy Facebook Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/vasavvies Get the visual experience, watch the videocast for the episode here: https://youtu.be/SI0_8cENNQI   Connect With Girija: Website: https://www.gbplaw.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gbplaw/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GBPLaw/   Get Ready To Use Contact Templates At: https://yourcontractbuddy.com/

“If it's not helpful, which I find often it's not, then that's the motivation to consider just going to that softer, kinder, more compassionate place.” -Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer   In today's episode, Coach Gabriella Dennery MD and Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer help us take on our inner critic. This episode is all about learning to be kinder and gentler to ourselves. In other words, treating ourselves with the same kindness we treat others. Have you relied on your inner critic to push you and keep you going to get to where you are today? Do you sometimes find it to be exhausting? Perhaps it's time to thank it for its service and put it in retirement. With a kinder and gentler inner voice you can release yourself from this internal struggle, and by being less harsh on yourself, you will notice that it becomes easier to treat others in your world with kindness as well. Start by acknowledging that inner critic. While quieting it will take practice, it is achievable. DocWorking Coaches Jill and Gabriella are here for you.

This solo episode dives deep into the real meaning of trusting yourself and remembering that you have all the answers. Trendy self-help quotes and simplified self-development tips end up getting misinterpreted and distorted into normalizing self-obsession. By taking a look at my personal experience and understanding of trusting yourself, I help you discover the power of breaking from conditioning and using the Self as a filtering mechanism. In addition, I explore how the current political and cultural climate of divisiveness takes advantage of people's desire to be seen as “good” and “virtuous”. These behaviors end up driving us away from our true selves and make us outsource knowledge to the point where we blindly trust the media, experts, and just about any entity other than our SELF. In the hopes of bringing you back home, I explain the negative impact of mob mentality behaviors, close-mindedness, and unconscious consumption by replacing those with accountability, service to others, and curiosity for exploring disagreement.

Whether you're looking at your first investment or raising your first fund, join me and let's build that portfolio one square foot at a time. All right, ladies and gentlemen, my name's Jessica galley and you're listening to working capital the real estate podcast. I have Bob on the program today. He's a real estate investor.   He's a nationally recognized speaker, mentor trainer, and everything related to real estate. He helps out with, and I believe Bob correct me if I'm wrong. You are a ex pro hockey player.   Bob (44s): I am, I played eight years and four years here. Four years in Europe,   Jesse (48s): Right on, well in recognition of a Leaf's a home opener here. Yeah. Great to have you on how you doing?   Bob (54s): Very good. Very good. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it.   Jesse (57s): Awesome. So, Bob, typically what we do, we have a new guests on the show. We do a little bit of a background on the guests. Maybe you could give listeners a little bit of your history as it relates to your career and, and real estate.   Bob (1m 11s): Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. W what's fast forward today. I'll back into it. I run a successful virtual assistant company out of the Philippines have been doing since 2014 and also have a, a real estate company. We should be at about a hundred and probably 40 to 50 transactions this year. So we're on, we're on a pretty good trajectory there, but how I got started to get back to that, I went to Boston university on a four year scholarship for a ice hockey league, which has talked about, and then I was fortunate enough to be offered a two year contract by St.   Louis blues. So I left two classes short of getting my degree with the thought process of, you know, you can always go back, but being obviously you've been from Toronto and understanding the hockey mindset, I never went back. So my thought process was I could always go back and get those two classes, but as you know, you know, once life gets in the way it gets rolling. Every summer I lived in Boston, I would be working out training and never ended up back in school.   So it's kind of comical though. It's when you actually go in school or when you're in school, you don't appreciate it as much as when you're actually out. So I, and I'll get back. I'll get to that a little bit later, but just starting with my path. I played at eight years, four years here in us and then four years in Europe. And then my last year I had my first son and my wife was working in the United States and I was in leave. I was in Switzerland at the time and I D I had to decide whether I was gonna hang up the skates or bring her with me.   And she had a very successful career in medical sales at the time. So we decided that, you know, I was going to hang up my skates and figure out what I was going to do with my life. So just probably 99.9% of all people that do real estate. I was reading books and read rich dad, poor dad. I bought a course online, a guy by the name. I think he's an attorney, David wisdom all about real estate, but you know, nothing in particular. I was a course about that thick, probably about 3, 4, 5 inches thick, but I read the thing from top to bottom and decided, Hey, you know what?   I don't have to go back to school to be a real estate investor. So I was a real estate investor. I was quiet, coined myself to rephrase. I coined myself as a real estate investor. This is 2004, started from there. My first flipped in 2004. And I decided to really do it as a, as a passion and a career and got my first business partner. I think it was the end of 2004, 2005. I was actually door knocking to people that were losing their houses.   Pre-foreclosure my buddy gave me a script at the time just, and I knew it and let me, let me rephrase it. I knew nothing like zero. I came from the hockey locker room, which for those of you who actually listened this, that came from any type of locker room, you learn zero in business. You learn how to cuss. You learn how to you learn how to, you know, kinda have a, a, a camaraderie, if you will. But on the business side, you don't learn much. And being in Europe for four years, you don't have a network either like you do have here in the United States.   So when I got back, I was kinda, you know, you're you go through any, any athlete understands this, you go through kind of a depression. I think you're a football player, right? Jesse. Yeah. I played football and hockey and hockey. So after you're done the planning, you understand this, you go, you know, before you start, or even when you join, you jump into a different industry, you go through some sort of, kind of a depression. It's, it's, it's not, I don't like saying the word depressed, but you go through a law if you will. And it takes a little while to find out and really get your team again.   Right? Because when you're hanging out with your buddies and you're hanging out with, you know, you, you know, you got your, you're going to block your butt, you block for your buddy. You're going to pass to your friend, you know, and you're going to win as a team when you're out there as a solo preneur, there is a transition, right? And it took me a little while. And I, you know, when I first got in real estate, I got a deal by myself that a rehab to pretty well made about $32,000 on it. But I also realized that there's no emotion in a dollar, right? When you get a big check the first year, you know, there's a quick high, there's a quick, it's kinda like when you, you know, back in the day, when you took Sudafed three Sudafed before you played, right, you can't do that now, but I'm just saying Sudafed.   So I took a couple Sudafed before I played every game. Maybe some coffee too. And you get that, that you get that quick high, right? You get that quick, quick, Joel. And it's the same thing when you get a big check, but when you take a step back, there's really no emotion in money it's really has to do with the goals that you hit. So I realized I didn't want to work by myself. So I joined a real estate investment association. I saw the speaker on the short-sale industry. So I bought that course and next event again, I had no network.   So the next event I had this, I had to go to within the regroup I had asked, Hey, who's the, who's the best short-sale person in Connecticut. And they all pointed this gentlemen, Patrick, pre-court went up to him say, listen, do you have no idea who I am? I'm not looking for a penny, but are, do you have any openings in your business? He said, you know what? I actually am looking for a door knocker. So for those of you who know what a door knocker is, it's kind of like working your first job as a janitor, and you have to work your way up because it is not sexy.   It's not your you're literally, you have a list of individuals and names, and you're driving from house to house with a script knocking on a door, right. It's door to door sales in essence. So I ended up having a little bit success in that. And then I, I hired someone to take my spot, jumped into negotiating with banks, because we were doing short sales, which means, you know, their, their debt was they're over leveraged. So they had $200,000 of debt. The property is worth a hundred. So now I'm talking to banks on a daily basis negotiating, and then brought myself out of that.   Hired. Somebody started a national coaching program while I was investing, started a virtual assistant staffing company for not only individuals like myself, but for other students as well, that needed extra time in their day that are working part-time or full-time and needed to, you know, needed to, to offs offset some of the tasks. So I know that, sorry about the long-winded answer, but   Jesse (7m 38s): No, that's great. I mean, I think it touches on a, I'm sure there's listeners that are coming from the sports world. I know in real estate, in general, there's a lot of ex players of all sports, but especially here in Toronto, our office is a lot of ex hockey players. My partner was drafted to the pens, played ECHL, kind of went all over and really didn't start in brokerage until he was in his late twenties. I think it was, yeah, it was late twenties. And I can a hundred percent appreciate the fact that, you know, you got somebody staying late in the office and you're trying to figure out what what's this guy doing.   And he's just trying to just get caught up on things that, you know, guys had, you know, Excel and just being able to figure out the emails and everything. But I think that's probably what, at least on the brokerage. And that's probably what the draw is for a lot of players to come over to brokerage because you get that team camaraderie aspect that you maybe don't get in other businesses. And certainly not as a, a solopreneur. So Bob, when you, when you got into kind of, when you say door knocking, you mentioned that you were doing some flips at that point, was it starting to get into the flipping business and that's you started doing transactions there or was that something separate?   Bob (8m 49s): Yeah, so I actually did it my first flip. It was just driving for dollar. So I saw a, a house that was, you know, needed it, it needed a roof, it was beat up. You could tell it was vacant. So I got in called the broker, actually it was listed property, got in, walked in, opened the door. And there was like a, a rancid smell of cats CRN. Right. So I opened the door and I'm like, all right, I read in this book that, you know, a lot of people are going to turn away from this. So I ended up making an offer. I think the property is listed for 180 5. I made an offer at 1 35 and lo and behold, the owner accepted it.   And I was like, oh, what do I do now? Right. Obviously you need money, you need contractors, you need all that kind of cool stuff. But I figured it out, ended up doing okay. And then after that, it was just, you know, I had zero systems, zero marketing, nothing. Right? So that's when I actually got a door knocking when I met my future business partner and he actually taught me, he said, listen, you know, he'd go door to door. Here's one of the, the systems and strategies for getting motivated sellers to sell your houses. So my whole mindset was, I want to start from ground up to learn the business because if one day I'm in, this is what pat taught me.   He was my old business partner that, you know, the, the success rate of businesses that last two years is not very high. I think it's, I don't even know the rate. It's very, very low of any business being successful, let alone partnerships. So John me that's my mindset was, you know what? I got to learn everything from ground up just in case I have to start my own company, whether it's a brokerage, whether it's a real estate investment company, whatever that looks like. I think it's very important for everybody to learn from foundation down or foundation up, I should say.   Jesse (10m 28s): Mm. Yeah. Fair enough. So you, you kind of, you start getting into hitting your stride in terms of doing transactions, moving up in the career in terms of where you're at now. Cause you mentioned kind of on the outset talking about virtually virtual assistance and that business. And I think it kind of takes a theme of a lot of people that we've come on the podcast, basically the who, not how mindset of, of basically trying to figure out what tasks are absolutely mission critical that you do, which ones can you outsource?   How do you do that? Can you afford it? So how did you get into that side of the business?   Bob (11m 3s): Yeah, it was interesting cause we, 2007, we actually got approached. There's a company called fortune builders here in Connecticut. And, but three of our buddies that actually started it, we're, we're flipping properties. They're were flipping properties. We would wholesale them. Some properties, we'd do some short sales together, a bunch of different stuff. And they approached us because pat and I actually started our first education program with a company out of Florida, end of 2005, 2006, and then 2007, when they were launching fortune billers, they said, Hey, listen, we've never done fulfillment.   We've never done coaching. How do you, you know, what do you guys do? And then we started mapping it out and they said, Hey, you guys want to be partners with us handshake partners. Right? So we were, our job was to take care of this. And, and then we grew that to, I think the biggest, they were were probably about $300 million in sales. Well, took care of the backend, started a coaching program from ground up hired coaches filled from within. And so after going probably through and working with over 30, 40,000 students, there's a lot of common themes, right?   Not only with my own business, but a lot of our students were either working part-time or full-time. And one of the things that we've noticed, I mean, you probably see this in your business. They're not making any more time. There's 24 hours in a day. There's not much time left to do a lot of this stuff. So I was always looking for some sort of service or product to, to help our students. And then in 2013, I actually got introduced to what a virtual assistant was and virtual assistants most likely when I talk about it, it's someone who doesn't live in the country.   Right. And I know there's, there's people that live in country in the same country that are virtual assistants, but not in the same state, et cetera. But I got introduced to a couple of different countries. I tried India, I tried Pakistan. I tried south America. The best virtual assistants that I found were in the Philippines. So after a year of working with them, a light bulb went on and I said, you know what? There's a business here. And the partner that I had at the time had no idea what I was talking about, but I said, listen, I said, you're using virtual assistance.   I said, you're pretty good on the systems and processes. I helped start coaching firms. So let's create training right behind the virtual assistant industry. So we started launched our first company, 2014, tested there for two years for proof of concept. It was a big hit. And then, you know, fast forward today, we're at over, they were at about 560 virtual assistance within, within a couple countries.   Jesse (13m 43s): So I'm curious on that point about trying different countries, whether it's Pakistan, India, like you see a lot of, you know, Upwork or fi wherever people kind of go resources that they use to look for virtual assistance. And it's been my experience too. I've had a, I've had three virtual assistants, the Philippines, two of them, the Philippines one, not in the Philippines. And I found the same thing. And I hear a lot of people that even just colleagues of mine or friends of mine, one just comes to mind, just started a Keller Williams brokerage on the residential side.   And they have found success in that side. Is there, is there something about what you were looking for or real estate that it seems to be the Philippines keeps coming up as, as the place to go?   Bob (14m 24s): Yeah. I just think it's really more cultural based. The Philippines Philippine culture is very family oriented. They look at your business as their business and they really, you know, they, they have a lot of pride in what they do. That's one thing, but also English is one of their main languages there. A lot of people don't realize that. Of course there's other kind of other kinds of like tagalo is one of them, but English is what they're taught and the newer generation too. And they're getting, you know, their English and accents getting, you know, more improved each year that they, you know, they've learned and they, you know, think about this now they got the internet here.   They're watching YouTube to watch a Netflix all day long, et cetera. So it just improves on that side of it. So we just selected that because of those main reasons.   Jesse (15m 13s): Yeah. It was one thing I was really surprised by when I started looking into this was, you know, part of the, the friend I mentioned the business that they were doing was cold calling. And like, to me, I was like, you can't outsource cold calling you can't and they say, well, why can't you? It's like, well, we outsource it. Like we, we teach younger guys and gals every day in our office there. Why can't you do that? And part of it was the first question was if you're in Toronto, you're in Boston, you're in New York, like you have the cultural or the, the proficiency in English is one thing, but not to have an accent and immediately think it's a cold call is another thing.   And what surprised me is that the people that we interview in the Philippines, like the first one had a UK accent, like fluent. And, you know, as a north American, there's, there's nothing better than a cold call from somebody from the UK or it's just a very, in a very endearing or disarming accent. So that was something for sure. I, I, I could see that a hundred percent that every year you're starting to get that proficiency up higher and higher to the point where yeah, you can hire for cold calling. It's just a matter of them teaching, teaching them the same way you would teach somebody local on the specific task of cold calling.   Bob (16m 24s): Yeah. And that's a great point. I literally had a, I had a presentation or a, I don't know if it was a podcast or a webinar to a, a real estate. It was a, it was a mix of investors and agents. And we had that this same conversation. And a lot of people don't realize is that, you know, I live in the Northeast, Northeast, Connecticut, United States. And I don't know if anyone's ever been there, but you know, growing up in Boston and Connecticut, there, there's a different kind of attitude there with people.   Right. So if they are okay with having a Filipino call them and they're giving them information, then anybody in this world will be okay with someone from the Philippines because you know, the attitudes of the Northeast are kind of like, you know, they look at you a certain way, like, what's your angle? What are you putting in that? So, so just, just to that kind of going off of that, if you have the right script and like you said, they follow a process, the main thing for any, whether it's it's the brokerage side or the investment side, the only thing that you want as an operator is for them to pretty screen that potential lead to say, yes, I'm interested to talk to either Bob or Jesse or whoever.   That's all you want. You do not want any, any virtual assistant closing a deal for it. Because if you do, it's your, it won't work. It's your business to close those deals. So driving those motivated leads to you. It's a, it's a very good way to keep your energy.   Jesse (17m 57s): Yeah. I think that's, that's for those listening that are looking at on the say on the investment side, you're calling off market deals because of how crazy our market is right now, especially industrial and multi-racial, but you're calling those owners of property. And you're trying to figure out if they're sellers. The, the thing that clicked for me, especially with the VA side of things is that their goal is not the same as yours. When you're calling, when I'm calling. It's a certain, I know that I have the ability to pivot to it, to the sale, but even for myself, the first part of the call is usually, you know, not somebody is not going to say, okay, yeah, well, I'll sell right here.   So what I underestimated was what you just said, the piece about them, first of all, their goal is to get them in contact with, you know, their team lead or their that's, who that's you, whoever, you know, whatever way you describe getting that call, but it's basically booking a meeting for us and to, to actually close the deal. And what I underestimated was that, that layer of having that seniority, when you go on the call, it actually helps you because it looks like you, you know, you have a staff of people that your, your time is valuable too.   You're not just calling.   Bob (19m 3s): Yeah. Yeah. And, and it weeds through a lot of the thinking about this. If you're sitting by your desk all day long, calling four hours a day, I guarantee you will be burnt out. Right. I mean, it did for me. So what I did, I didn't finish my, actually my, I didn't finish my story on every day from 10 o'clock to 3:00 PM, I would door knock. And then I would go home in that same list, I'd go to either white pages, four eleven.com or whatever. And I would skip trace the number in out and hammer the phones before I would have dinner. Cause obviously my wife would have killed me if I, if I kept working all night, but that's what I would do all day long and over time.   And that beats you up, that beats you up. If you're hammering that all doing that, if that's the only thing you're going to do. Yeah.   Jesse (19m 44s): That's a lot of fatigue. I mean, even, even in our industry, you do that for your first couple of years at most. And then hopefully, you know, you get some, some deal volume. So Bob, in terms of, for somebody that's, they are completely outside of the realm of, of hiring somebody. It doesn't seem like something that'd be part of their business at this point. A lot of times people that justification will be the costs, which, you know, I think Kevin kind of get dispelled fairly quickly with the fact that you're outsourcing it. But the, just the fact that talk a little bit about the need for one, when people say, I don't think I'm at that stage yet.   Yup.   Bob (20m 22s): And I look at it. It's, it's funny. You said that. Cause I had this conversation earlier with someone too, I look at is, and this is not what I, I, how I looked at things when I first started, I look at things as an investment now. Right. So if you're going to hire somebody, it's not a cost, it's an investment. Right? So we just added a transaction coordinator in our office. And that to me is a huge investment because that's going to give your team is going to be way more right then if you don't have it.   So that's the way I look at adding a, let's say a cold color because you have to look at what we do on a daily basis. And you say, okay, if I'm doing a $10 an hour task, most likely I'm gonna have a $10 an hour bank account, right? Because if you're doing those tasks, our jobs as business owners or whatever role managers, whatever role we are is not to be cold calling all day. It's not to be, you know, spending our time prospecting. It's not to be, you know, doing admin work, posting social media, doing all of that stuff that you should literally look at your calendar for the next two weeks, write down all of your tasks, identify what tasks you could take off of your plate and pass off to somebody else.   Whether it's a virtual assistant or your office assistant, whatever it is. Right. And then you'll realize like, wow, I actually have 20 plus more hours of my week. Hey, you may, you may decide to go to a Leafs game then and get out of office, get out of your office early. But if you have that extra time, then you could decide, Hey, do I want to use that to build this or build this or build this or go on vacation or whatever it is. But you'll realize with an extra 20 hours, you can do a lot.   Jesse (22m 5s): Yeah. For sure. What do you find from the individuals that you work with in real estate? What do you find is the task that they find that is the one that they end up saying, this is something I, I need more time to do or when they take these other things off their plate, they're like, this is really the thing I should be focusing on.   Bob (22m 23s): So are you saying that the tasks typically that they're doing, are you saying then that when that's off or do they do   Jesse (22m 29s): Once, once they offload, like you said, you go through your tasks, you, you identify the ones that you don't need to be there that you can offload to the VA after that, do you find there's one or two tasks that those individuals find that, okay, here, this is what I should be focusing on. Okay.   Bob (22m 44s): So yeah, that's kind of tough question, but I'll give you, I'll give you the answer of me personally. What happens when you, you're not overwhelmed and you're not looking at this phone, you want you, you're not checking the list and checking the box. You could actually take a step back and look at your business through a 10,000 foot overview. And once you actually can do that, it's kind of like sports, right? When you're, when you get better, the game gets slower, right? So it's kind of the same concept. And in, in, in business, if you could then have more time, you could pull yourself out, you could see how things are moving, right.   They move really, really slow. So now you'll be looking at your acquisition team, how many calls and now you can really oversee them. How many calls are they doing? Maybe you're going to listen to calls maybe, oh, you're going to realize, now you need to add another individual on your team. So you could really look at it on a and again, this all depends on what type of business you're in. If you're in the commercial brokerage right now, you're going to be building relationships, going to dinner with a banker or with a v-neck or you'll have that much more time to build your business and look at your business in a different light.   Does that, does that?   Jesse (23m 51s): It makes sense. Yeah. A hundred percent. And I think it, it, it is probably a tough question because I find it'll probably be different for each type of individual and worker or, or type of entrepreneur, especially. I think that's a good point because I feel like most entrepreneurs like pure entrepreneurs at heart, I think are, are creative and big picture. And part of, one of the worst things you can do is get them bogged down in, in my new HSA and task oriented things. And like you said, it's almost like a it's sports or it's like Neo in the matrix, everything kind of slows down and you know, you're seeing everything around you and you can finally say, you know, what are we doing in six months?   What are we doing a year from now? And have that big picture plan.   Bob (24m 33s): Yeah. And you can start, you can start doing quarterly, you know, start setting quarterly goals. And you know, a great book has traction. Right? Very, very good book to read, to start that scaling up as another one, but it's really good. You could now start implementing this in your business and you could do more training. You know, there's nothing more important as you know, is, is training your team because, you know, if you could have spend more time on the ground with the team training, they're going to be that much better themselves in the companies you have that much better.   Yeah.   Jesse (25m 3s): Fair enough. So when you let, for example, if you have somebody that, whether it's, you know, most listeners are on the real estate end on the investment side, when you have an individual that's looking for a virtual assistant, they hire the virtual assistant. Do you find that there's kind of a hierarchy of tasks that you, you know, you say start with these types of things before you go, for instance, into more sales oriented stuff. So here's an email list that we need cleaned up, or here's a know here's some administration work that we need done and then move them towards sales or cold calling or acquisition, or is there it's, everything's, you know, everybody's different.   Bob (25m 42s): Yeah. You know what, that's an extra, very good question. And the answer is everyone's different. We identify that right or front, because the way our process is we have a sourcing and recruiting team in the Philippines. We also have a training team where they train three to four weeks a month on real estate tasks. And then we have a placements team where we use predictive and index and disc profiling. So once it gets to the placements team, we already know when sales comes in, when an individual wants a cold call, or let's say, it's almost like match.com and in placements, right.   They match up the, the disc profile, that predictive index in the qualities that, that particular virtual assistant has with the tasks that you're looking for, I'm looking for. So that's what we do as a company to match them up. Because you know, you know, this, if you've ever, if you've ever gone on a company like Upwork, it's a pain in the butt, right. You have to sift through hundreds and hundreds. I mean, I hired here in my office and I use wise hire or indeed or whatever, it's the concept I got to do all the heavy lifting.   Right. So we, what we did in our, my Reva global company is we funded all of that heavy lifting and just hand it over to them.   Jesse (26m 53s): Yeah. It's funny. It's almost a, the irony of when you do go on Upwork, you almost want a virtual assistant to, to hire for you on Upwork tonight. When you, when you say disk, just, just so I'm following you, it's like the personality tests, like the, the profile. Okay. So you go to that, to that level of, of granularity when you're trying to match up the VA with the professional. Yep. Correct. And what, what was the kind of the origin of that approach where you start actually looking at all right, is this person really psychologically the right person for this task or for this, this matchup?   Yeah.   Bob (27m 32s): And you started looking at that over the years. You know, it started, like I said, I started this in 2014, you'll realize that, you know, cold callers tend to be a certain kind of profile. Right. And you'll have, you know, bookkeepers are a certain type of profile because you'll never want to put, and I'll give you an example. These is accurate it's dominance, right? So you have dominance and eyes for influence interaction or interactive. So those type of individuals, they love being on the phone. Right.   You know, just the fi finish up that S S is for, for a steadiness and a CS for consciousness. Those are more of your bookkeepers that are really attention to detail. You know, you know, there's a lot of salespeople, you know, their attention to detail. Sometimes you don't want them.   Jesse (28m 19s): There's a couple of zeros there.   Bob (28m 21s): Exactly. So that's how we look at that to, to help, you know, find the best fit.   Jesse (28m 27s): Yeah. And I think that's a missing piece with a lot of it. I think that goes for not even VAs. I think that's just hiring in general, trying to match up culture. And that's, you know, it goes back to the beginning of our discussion here, you know, where you have certain industries, I find are more conducive to X athletes. It's a very, you'll have very similar cultures and working together.   Bob (28m 49s): Yep. Yeah. There's I mean, you know, ex athletes, it's typically it's sales, right? You got a lot of Phi X app, that's going in a financial industry, right. Medical industry, same thing, pharmaceutical industry. That's a lot of how, how a lot of these companies, actually, I got a buddy that's pretty high up in principal financial, and that's what they do. They look at, you know, they look at resumes from, from bigger companies. And I know there's a lot of colleges that are tying to some companies now, which is actually really, really, really good.   And you know, the funnel.   Jesse (29m 21s): Yeah. Would you not to put you on the spot here, but would you be able to name a couple tasks or jobs that you would think, or that most people think is, is something they wouldn't put on a VA, but, but you've, you've found success in it or are there certain things that people are surprised that VA's can, can do?   Bob (29m 43s): Yeah. I mean, on the multifamily level, just talk about the multifamily side. We have a lot of our multi-family investors. We have a lot of our blog. We have a lot of single family investors that own hundreds of units. Right. I have one individual that has 15 virtual assistants with us that does everything from bookkeeping to taking tenant calls, to doing tenant placements. Right. So those are some of the things off the bat right away. The other marketing properties that are actually some of those properties that go vacant, someone needs to then start marketing them and push them around to all of the sites that they have.   The there's a, some syndicated sites. So you push them out too. So there's a lot of those types of tasks that other people don't think of in reference to that. Another one is, is a big part of all of our businesses. I mean, you have a podcast, right. It's using a virtual assistant to splice up your videos and send it out to your, whether it's your email list or whatever list that you have posting it on YouTube posting on Instagram, posting it on Facebook, all that kind of stuff that takes a lot of time. And it's a pain in the butt, right.   So I have a podcast. That's what we do.   Jesse (30m 52s): Yeah. 100%. It is a, it becomes a bit of a full-time job, but, and once you hit your stride with something like that, really the hardest, the hardest part I found is the, is that setup piece. So like you're saying whether it's going an Upworker, it's going on another site, it really, a lot of it is that finding people and you find, you find that you, you really need a virtual system for that job itself, just trying to get other people on.   Bob (31m 15s): Yup. Yeah, for sure. And, and, you know, it took me a little while at the beginning and that, that was the business model that we, we figured out at the beginning because of the pain, you know, I felt you could go for places that, you know, I always look at in this kind of funny, you look at, I look at my company, I'm not the cheapest. Right. And I've, I've come to realize after 17 plus years in business, if you go for the cheapest, you're going to get the cheapest. Right. That's the way it's pretty, you know, you start looking at that, the older we get, you start seeing things a little different.   And I always go back to, to this one of my first houses I ever bought, I bought a home Depot cheap door for 99 bucks. And the, and it was a you're the next door and every winter and every summer, my, either he bill or electric bill was through the roof. And I was looking at that door doors. I think I probably should've spent probably over 500 bucks and I probably would have saved thousands of them, thousands and thousands of dollars. So that's the way I look at, you know, you pay for in life, you pay for what you get rewarded, you pay for   Jesse (32m 22s): Yeah. A hundred percent. So just wrapping up close to the end here, we usually have a set of questions. We ask every guest, but before we do them, I'm, you know, selfishly on the VA side, I have a question about email and calendar management and, you know, just like a lot of these things that you think can't get outsourced, that it turns out that you can, from an email management point of view, how, what do you recommend if somebody is they've, you know, for whatever business it is, they want somebody to offload or shoulder some of the things that they're doing through email, you know, for strategies from that point of view, whether it's calendar and email, just email and you know, what techniques do you find these that, that people are, that are the VA's are doing?   Are, you know, the aggregating, the most important ones. Are you training them up on that piece?   Bob (33m 13s): Yeah. So just on, on email management, I mean, we could get, I don't know how many emails you get a day, but I get a billion. Right. And you get some that don't, you know, they're just junk mail. You signed up for a Travelocity Expedia and they sell your email over to something else and they sell it to something else. Right. So I find what works out well as virtual assistance, just sifting through and going through each, probably each hour and then getting through some of those. And then we set up a side email to send the really important ones over to.   So that's how it worked out very well. It saves that does save a lot of time. I know it sounds so simple, but if you actually took the time and you're like, all right, you're looking at, you're looking at your emails, how many junk emails you actually get per day or emails that just waste your time and are not important for you on a daily basis. It's hours upon hours on a day.   Jesse (34m 8s): Yeah. And it's, it's time is one piece of it. But I think another piece for sure is just the stress. It's, you know, when you look at your phone and there's 200 emails or there's 78, whatever it is like you go, if somebody can be like, okay, I have somebody, whatever. I was just text message or emailed. I know those are the important ones. I don't have to stress about it. I can manage it. Yeah.   Bob (34m 26s): And I, I know if anyone's like me, it's I look at this, I gotta get mine down to zero.   Jesse (34m 31s): Yeah. I'm the same way. I, if it's over like 20, I'm starting to get stressed. Awesome. Well, we've got four questions. We typically ask every guest. So if you are a, if you're ready to go off, throw them at you, let's do it. All right. What's something, you know, now in your career or business, you wish you knew when you started out   Bob (34m 52s): Don't chase the shiny objects. Because typically those shiny objects where losing a lot of money and wasted a lot of time.   Jesse (34m 60s): I like it in terms of mentorship for younger people getting into, in, into the industry, whether it's real estate or other specific areas, what would you say to them? What's your view on mentorship?   Bob (35m 12s): I say 100% invest in it. 100% because mentors will cut your learning curve over time and will make you way more money than being a, a lone Wolf in a, in a solo preneur and saying, Hey, I can do it all myself. You know, if you learn anything from, from, from sports it's you need a team. I don't care if it's Wayne Gretzky, right? Wayne, Gretzky has a team with them. Doesn't matter. Right? I mean, look, how good look, how good Toronto is? They have a lot of sprinkles stars, right?   If they learn how to play together, they might win a cup. Right?   Jesse (35m 46s): So fingers crossed any resources or books you're reading right now that you'd, you can share with the listeners.   Bob (35m 55s): I would, I would definitely say books like scaling up or traction or some of the books that 100% I would highlight. And we talk about our, in our business, outside these walls here all the time. And I think those are, if you're going to read some books, those are very, very powerful books. The other one is one of the, the ones that I think is for me, it has been very powerful as a it's called a compound effect. Darren. That's a very good one. Yep.   Jesse (36m 21s): First car make and model.   Bob (36m 23s): First car was a Nissan Maxima, white Nissan Maxima. This is when I got my signing bonus. I bought a used one. So it was back. This is hallway back.   Jesse (36m 33s): That's awesome. Right on Bob. Where, where can listeners find you on the interwebs?   Bob (36m 40s): Yep. Actually you go to my website@rivaglobal.com, R E V a global.com. I'm on Facebook. I'm on LinkedIn. I'm on Instagram. So you can find us there. We have a podcast called Friday coffee break. It's on every Friday at 10:00 AM. Eastern standard time. So you check me out there and yeah, all my contact information is out there.   Jesse (37m 4s): My guest today has been Bob Bob. Thanks for being part of working capital.   Bob (37m 9s): Awesome, Jesse, thanks for having me.   Jesse (37m 18s): Thank you so much for listening to working capital the real estate podcast.

Absolutely not!   At DocWorking, we have developed a unique way to embrace it all.   The caring for others that you do so selflessly AND the caring for YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY that you crave in order to bring it all into the perfect balance specific to YOU.   What if we told you that you CAN have it all? The career you dreamed of when you decided to become a doctor AND the life outside of medicine that you desire?   DocWorking empowers physicians to get back on the path to achieving their dreams.   Ace the Boards and Max Your CME Preparing for your board exam or looking for a quick and convenient way to earn CME? Study for your board exam and fulfill your CME requirements with BoardVitals.

Physicians often sacrifice their personal time to carry out their duties. They want to go on vacations, start passion projects, or start side businesses but finding the time seems impossible. Recently, more and more physicians are giving outsourcing a try. Outsourcing allows you to delegate tasks to virtual assistants so you can free up your time and finally do whatever it is you've been wanting to do.   Become a Medical Legal Consultant We at DocWorking are excited to collaborate with Dr. Armin Feldman to bring you this opportunity to develop a side income or even a full time income while using your clinical skills!   Achieve Financial Independence with a Financial Planner/Advisor Change your trajectory: build financial independence and strength by working with our trusted resources. Working with a trusted financial planner and/or financial advisor can help you to create a specific plan that works for you. The right advisor can help you stay on track to reach your financial independence goal and your next vision.   Protect Yourself and Your Family with the Right Insurance Doctors and their families need many types of insurance–and inadequate coverage can cost you dearly. Connecting with trusted insurance professionals in your area is recommended to be sure you're appropriately covered.   Are you a physician who would like to tell your story?
