But that transition is not always perfectly seamless. In this episode, Emil shares his struggle with one of his multi-family properties, and Michael helps him come up with a plan to solve his problem. --- Transcript Before we jump into the episode, here's a quick disclaimer about our content.

Welcome to another episode of The Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael album and today I'm joined by my co host,   Emil: Emil Shour.   Michael: And today, Emil and I gonna be talking about his real life debacle that he's in with his triplex and how he's going to be getting himself out of it. So let's get into it.   All right, well, a meal first and foremost, and to all of our listeners and watchers. Happy New Year. We're recording this a couple days after the first, you have a good celebration?   Emil: Happy New Years, my friend. Yes. I had some delicious I made some wagyu steak at home. We fired up the hot tub at our new house. So it was very mellow, but very relaxing and awesome new year. How about you, man?   Michael: Nice. It was great. I went with my wife to a friend's house out in Stinson Beach. California was just right on the water hanging out through the beach walking doing some paddle boarding so no complaints very relaxing.   Emil: Very good man.   Michael: So today earlier before this episode, you and I were chatting and you've got this triplex and it's given you some headache. And I know you've talked about the this particular triplex in the past but maybe never in this capacity. So if you could bring all of our listeners up to speed what's going on with this triplex?   Emil: Oh, man, so for anyone who's probably been listening to the show for a while they know the infamous triplex I'm sure you're tired of hearing about it. But this was a triplex I bought is my first foray into small multifamily. I bought this the end of 2020, November 2020. middle of last year, we had as planned some tenants move out, which was great. We wanted to do some work because it was pretty far under market rent. And so long story short, took us a couple months got the work done. And this one unit of mine has just been sitting vacant for a very long time.   I had a my previous pm who wasn't very good. They came to me and they said, all right. It's very diplomatic of you. We have it I have a new property manager as of late so we're seeing how they're doing. But this property manager, we finished everything, the leasing agent. I thought this this property could probably rent for or this unit would rent for somewhere in like the $600 neighborhood. He's like, No, the market has gone up a ton. It's really hot in St. Louis right now. I'm going to shoot for $850 and kind of raise a red flag, but I'm like, You know what, I think this will be a good test of this leasing agent. If they're confident it they can make it happen. I mean, who's gonna say no to 200-250 bucks more rent per month, right? Like, I was like,   Michael: Okay, and this was, this was the old pm?   Emil: This is the old property manager. Correct. Okay, so sir, a 50. Crickets, I think a month later. Yeah, go ahead.   Michael: Sorry. Emil, what was the rent when you bought it?   Emil: The rent on this unit was I think 485 or something.   Michael: Okay, so you did the Reno and then your projection of six to 650 was already a big jump, but they're saying, Okay, now maybe almost double.   Emil: Right. Right. They're saying, you know, okay, we've seen rents go up across the country. They, I think they just overshot it. But I was, again, testing, right property manager I've been working with for about six months, new leasing agent, let's see what they can do. Right, let's see if they can, I think these are all just things to test, right. I try to trust and enable my property manager as much as possible. So I just let them run with it sits there for about a month, nothing, not getting really any applications with decided lower to 800 nothing for another two, three weeks, we lower it to 725 as Keep going Keep going. We get down to I think 675 650. And it had been months and months. And it was just the same old story, you know, property. The leasing agent coming back to me every week, telling me oh, I'm confident we're gonna get it this week. And it's just crickets every week.   And so, at that point, you know, this property with with getting it rehabbed and being marketed, were at like, five, six months of no rents. And to me it was just a major, major red flag. Like we're in a hot market, it's true rent is going up, but they just can't execute. And so for me, it was a time to pull the trigger and find a new property manager. I like to move fast. I don't want to wait too long. I think I gave them enough chance and I just wasn't really happy with what they were doing. So I have since then moved to a new property manager, the beginning of December. We've been Marketing at 650. And we're getting kind of similar stuff.   What's interesting though, what the difference is here, this property manager, they no longer accepting voucher tenants, and they just have higher qualifications, which I'm okay with. I'm okay if we wait a little.   Michael: And what's a voucher tenant?   Emil: Voucher is Section Eight, someone who meets a certain income threshold where the city the local authority is helping them pay their rent.   Michael: Okay, so this Pm is not accepting those tenants.   Emil: Yeah, they've decided, I think this is recent, they decided they're no longer filling vacant units with voucher tenants. So okay, which is fine. I want them to manage, you know, I want them to do whatever they're comfortable with, they have 1200 plus units, they manage they know this game, so I'm letting them handle it.   So it's a new year, you know, December was slow the holidays, we didn't get much. And so now it's like, my leasing agent comes to me, he's like, I think we should be at 600. That seems where the market is, is telling us to be. And so, you know, this is just a rough spot for me where I'm like, What do I do here? I've tried multiple property managers. Is it my location? Is it the property like what's going on? And I, you know, I get different answers every week. But it's like, Man, I don't know. I'm curious if you've been in positions like this, what do you what have you done to get a tenant in place? Some additional background, I'd call this a classy property over 100 years old, you know, it's been, there's things have been fixed, but it hasn't gone like I didn't got rehab this place or anything special. So okay. That's the context.   Michael: All right. Well, I've got an answer for your question. But I'm gonna first answer it with a couple of more quality questions for you, my friend. So this Pm that you got rid of, because I think I know, I've been hearing a lot of stories like this from people both in the academy, and then just people, fellow investor, friends and colleagues that they're frustrated with their PM, and they don't know what to do, and they don't know how to approach a situation. So was this lack of getting a proper at least, like the final straw? The, the, the, the property manager had been kind of screwing up up to this point. And this was the straw that broke the camel's back, or, or was this kind of that first, second and third strike for you that said, Hey, I gotta I gotta make a move.   Emil: The rehab, I think was it went a lot longer than originally anticipated. I think that's every rehab, right? Like, every time you hear about that, it was just like, you know, I got pictures back. And the quality of my property managers telling me, oh, work was great, blah, blah, blah, I'm looking at the work. I'm like, yeah, it's okay. And it looks like we you know, we didn't pay. It wasn't the cheapest, but it wasn't the highest. I don't know, just, it was a couple things for me. But I would say the majority of it, it's the if you can't lease my place, like, how can I continue working with you? That was the majority of it, like, your leasing agent isn't doing their job? I can just keep a property with you. That's sitting two thirds vacant?   Michael: Yeah. Now it makes total sense. And so what was the physical process that you went through to get a new property manager? Was it a, let's have a discussion with the existing pm saying kind of an ultimatum, hey, if you can't do this, then this is the consequence? Or was it you know what I'm so fed up. And now I did this other stuff. So walk me through what you did.   Emil: I thought about saying, Guys, if you don't get this place rented by the end of whatever, like, I need to move on. My fear there is then I'm basically forcing their hand to find a terrible tenant, just to fill the place and keep my business. So I refused. I didn't want to set an ultimatum and then be in a worse situation a couple months down the road, I try to work with them. You know, I'm following up. I'm not like playing on the sidelines, like I'm getting regular updates. I'm trying to just hold them accountable as much as I can. And just seeing how they do things. And I I wasn't happy with it for months. And so for me, it was just time to move on. Try something new.   Michael: And so were you interviewing other PMS? Did you cut the cord before you found a new one? What was that process? Like?   Emil: You know, I talked to this was my second property manager in St. Louis. So I had been talking to some other property managers, there's people in the academy who you know, I chat with in Slack, and they tell me, Hey, you should check out so and so. It's funny, you talk to two different investors who've used the same property manager and you get a different story. And so I hadn't, I hadn't there was one backup I was thinking of, but I had mixed reviews about them. And then actually, you had a friend who was raving about a property manager they use in St. Louis. And I, you know, I was getting fed up like, Hey, man, just give them a call. So I called them we had a good conversation. They seem like they really knew their stuff and so, so further out has been great.   You know, the last property manager, I was using smaller team, which I was curious to see, like, you know, do I get a little bit more sway with them because they don't have 1000 plus units. But I think sometimes you find that their operations are lacking, or as this company 1200 Plus units, their operations are much tighter, I get answers faster. They have a person who like they have people who master a certain domain, not like you're wearing seven hats within the company, which is actually yeah, I think better personally.   Michael: Yeah. Makes total sense. Just, you know, why did you say you're so surprised? Like, can you have a friend like, what are you just like, pick? I don't have friends.   Emil: And what was funny, because you asked, and I'm like, Well, you know how this story ends? She told me about the property manager. You're asking me like, you don't know. But you know,   Michael: It's it's part of the ship, man, you know, it's for the pod. Alright, cool. That makes sense. And I think that's really good takeaway from from like a process standpoint, for anyone who is in a similar situation or feels like they might be in a similar situation with the property manager of being kind of fed up or having the the demerits accumulate. This is a pretty repeatable process that anyone can go through. And frankly, I think you should be interviewing property managers, as soon as you get an inkling of yours not working out, because you don't want to wait till after the fact you don't wanna be playing catch up, you want to be proactive and have a plan B, and possibly even C, for if and when that day ever does come that you're like, I'm done.   Emil: Yeah, I can tell you personally, every time I've started to have doubts about a person, a vendor, or whatever, and I try to work through it, it almost always doesn't work out. So I feel like once you have that gut feeling like things aren't working out. Like you said, you should be talking to other people as a backup, because I found it rarely works out.   Michael: Yeah. But so do you think then now having had that experience, you as soon as your next vendor, or relationship you get that gut feel? Are you going to cut the cord sooner? Or are you still going to try to kind of work through it to give people the benefit of the doubt?   Emil: I stupidly still give people benefit of the doubt and try to work through it. Because you know, I'm, I'm not like going to fire somebody at the first. A mess up is different to me than like, I don't feel like this is going to work out. Everyone messes up its account, a bit like, are they accountable? Do they have a plan for how to fix this? It's a matter of like, when people mess up and there's no accountability, and they're not. They don't have a game plan for how we're going to fix this or anything. Or they're just being vague. That's when I'm like, Okay, this is starting to give me red flags.   Michael: Yeah, makes total sense. And then just out of curiosity, when you ran this, the numbers on this property, how did it cash flow? I mean, what was your expected monthly cash flow?   Emil: I don't remember the number I can probably go dig it up. It was probably gonna, I think it was gonna be once we rehabbed it, you know, if I include all the rehab costs, as like, my cash in the property, we were probably going to cash on cash around 10%. I think it was   Michael: Okay. And so now the fact that this property or this unit, the middle or whatever, the the unit is vacant, are you negative cash flow every month? Are you still able to cover your costs?   Emil: Uh, that one we were okay with when it was offline, we have the bigger townhouse style of the triplex vacant. That's the moneymaker. Right? That one's like 1000 Plus that we're marketing it for right now. It was at like 850 or 900. Before. So with just the one bedroom that we were talking about just now, offline or vacant, we were okay. But now that two are are vacant. Yeah, we're, I'm coming out of pocket every month. Right now.   Michael: Okay. All right. And so is your property manager seeming confident that I can get the bigger unit rented out just as easily as the smaller one.   Emil: They I mean, when I'm looking around my like, on Zillow for in the area for a three bedroom apartment. There's nothing right now. So for me, it's a rough time because it's the new year. It's cold, usually in colder climates, tougher to get people moving, like people don't move as much during the winter. Plus, you also just had the holidays. So not a lot of people, not as many people are moving. But in looking at the landscape. Like within a half mile mile radius. There's literally no three bedrooms for rent. So anyone who needs some bigger space, we're looking pretty good. I just think it was a time of year. So I'm more optimistic about that one. I'm just this this one bed one bath is like, Man, when are we going to figure this one out?   Michael: Yeah. All right. Well, that's super good perspective and good background. So getting back to the crux of your question with you know, advice tips have ever been a situation before? Yes to all three. In April of 2020. So right when COVID was really hitting hard in the States, I was trying to rent out a freshly rehabbed four unit that I talked a lot about on prior episodes, which is like, Oh, my God, could you have picked a worse time to have four units have to come online. And like at a at a premium, they were really expensive units, because I put a ton of money into them, they're very high end, because when I started the rehab in 2019, that's the way things were going. And so things would have worked out quite well.   And so we just could not get these things rented for the life of us, my property manager, somebody your started high, and then brought them down low, which I was fine with, because they've been vacant for so long. So it's an extra three, four or five weeks to try to get them leased up. So it would came to a point where we were kind of at our bottom threshold of where we could be. And I said, Hey, let's start doing some some moving specials. 200 bucks off, 300 bucks off 400 bucks off per month to get someone to move in, just so it made that easier for them to get in the door.   Because I think that I think a lot of people forget myself included, is when you physically go move into a new property. There are a lot of expenses associated with doing that. So first and foremost, there's the physical cost of moving, if you're going to rent, some kind of assistance, whether that's movers or a truck, whatever, then there's a security deposit, which is usually at a minimum, one month's rent could be one and a half month's rent. And then you have first month's rent, and sometimes last month's rent. So depending on what the lease structure looks like, I mean, so for that $600 A month unit, you're looking at a minimum of 1200 bucks if they move themselves 600 bucks and in deposit 600 bucks for the first month's rent. And so if you could just make it a little bit easier on someone to move in, it can often go a long way towards actually getting the needle moving, so to speak.   And so we did this on, I think three of the four units. And we had people in there, I think within a month, which was pretty awesome. And so what I did is basically I just said, Okay, how much is this each unit? How much is it costing me on a daily basis in like last opportunity costs essentially. And so what I figured out is, look, if I can get someone here in here in two weeks versus a month, and I'm giving them 400 bucks off, I'm kind of picking numbers here at random. That's actually cheaper than if the thing sat vacant for an additional two weeks. And so I would encourage you to do the same thing and sit down and say, Okay, what can I stomach from a financial perspective? Forget the ego side. But put that aside, your ego is not your Amigo. And you know, what can you financially stomach and say, Okay, well, if I can get if I give that to a discount, and somebody just to get them in here is you know, that can often be a really good move.   Emil: Yeah. I have a question. Did you find that you guys weren't getting a lot of activity? And then you did that special? And you were? Because we're we're getting interest? We're just not getting qualified applicants. So did you guys have a like a traffic problem? Or was there a quality problem as well that your PM was like, No, we don't want these types of this tenant doesn't qualify before you?   Michael: I, I think it was both, I think but because they handle all the inbound leads. That's not something that I get too involved in. So I don't I don't really remember specifically. But I think it was both a traffic and a quality issue. But try it. I mean, worst case scenario, you still don't get any qualified tenants inside two weeks, and you take it down, and you go back to what you're doing originally. I don't think it it hurts to try.   Emil: Yeah, yeah, I should. I should just email my leasing agent. Honestly, I'm gonna do that right after this episode be like, Hey, let's do a $200 off special. And we should just time bound it right. Did you guys time bound to like move in before the end of January or? Yeah,   Michael: Exactly. Yep. To encourage encourage people to stuff like, Hey, here's a carrot to do something.   Emil: Right. Cool. I'm doing that right after we hit pause on this. Yeah, stop record. Right.   Michael: Yeah. Can you post it? I think little things to differentiate yourself too. Because I mean, there might be a bunch of other ones in the area for 600 bucks a month. Right? But if you can be different. And we all like to think that we're different because of whatever we did to the property physically, that we put in granite countertop, whatever, why couldn't someone see the value here, like, of course is a good deal. But we need to remove ourselves from the situation. And so yeah, often just giving a monetary instead of like money talks.   Emil: From these experiences, do you when you go into a vacancy, and when you're going to rent it out? Where do you like to be? Do you go market do you start a little high and come down if it doesn't work out? Where do you how do you start the game?   Michael: Yeah. So on these ones, we started definitely top of market because they were brand new. And so that didn't work out. So then we kept lowering and lowering and lowering. So I think that especially for for some of the markets that I'm in and in the price points for the rents that I'm in the difference between market and under market, like isn't a huge deal, right? You know, 50 bucks, maybe maybe 100 bucks versus what does that vacancy cost? In, in the amount of time it takes you to get that unit leased?   Emil: Right.   Michael: So it tends to be nominal. And so I'm happy being slightly under market, just to get bodies into the property qualified bodies into the property. But that's how I think about it. And then once someone's in there, I mean, it's much easier to keep someone and incrementally incrementally increase the rent, as opposed to trying to get someone in at a much higher rent. And so that's what we did on the on that four Plex is I knew that we were well under market. And so I got seven to 9% rent increases almost across the board on those units, because the rent went up, but it was still a great deal. So that's kind of how I think about it.   Emil: Yeah, I'm, I'm starting to feel the same way. Like if my property manager ever wants to go above, I'm going to say, no, I'd rather be at or slightly below and get someone who men turns are the worst vacancies are the, like, they crush you. So if you can be a little bit under I mean, I get it for commercial stuff. You know, every extra dollar you get of NOI it changes the value of the property, I get that. But in the single family and small multifamily space where things are run on comps, right? Like, I think getting rid of your vacant like having less vacancy, having someone just stay longer. I mean, I've seen it in my own portfolio, like the best performers are the ones where the tenants just don't move, and you slowly increase their rent, you know, maybe, maybe it's even small moves, nothing, maybe it's 2%, whatever it is, but like, making sure you don't have vacancies is like so key.   Michael: It's so so key. It's so key. And I mean to that point, too. And when it comes time for renewals, like you mentioned, think about even maybe not raising my rent, if someone's a really great tenant, what's it worth, it's you to keep them, right, 25 bucks a month, 30 bucks a month of what you might get in an increase. I think we need to sometimes get outside the spreadsheet, and just look holistically and say, okay, is this truly worth it?   Emil: No, Michael, my cash on cash will only be 8% instead of nine. And I'm not happy with that.   Michael: And my pro forma said nine.   Emil: That's right. And I want to tell people about my percentage on the spreadsheet. But let me tell you the percentages blow up real fast when you have a three to six month vacancy.   Michael: Yeah. So yeah, very, very fast.   Emli: So anyway, that's, that's what I've learned.   Michael: Awesome. We'll do this was like super insightful and great, I think, for a number of different reasons to talk about problems with PMS problems with leasing problems with rent setting. This is all really real world stuff. And it's not always butterflies and rosebuds, so I appreciate you being vulnerable and sharing with us.   Emil: Absolutely. I mean, I like when people talk about this stuff, like the actual stuff going on instead of   Michael: The real stuff.   Emil: Yeah, instead of just, you know, it's always this we talk about all the time, this is this is part of the business, like you have to be good at dealing with problems. It's not, you know, just mailbox money all the time. That's not how it works. So I think people have more realistic expectations. It's easier to when you have those challenges to just work through them so…   Michael: Well, already when that was our episode, a big thanks to a meal for sharing. This was great, man. really insightful, really humanizing, you know, this is good. This is good. This is therapeutic. This is cathartic. It's good to talk about the crap stuff.   Emil: That's right. You gotta you gotta.   Michael: As always, if you liked the episode, feel free to leave us a rating or review wherever it is that you listen to podcast. We look forward to seeing on the next one. Happy investing.   Emil: Happy investing everyone.

Have you ever wondered what it would take to go from homelessness to becoming a successful real estate investor? It's nothing more than the drive to become financially independent and the willingness to apply the strategies you learned. In today's episode, Greg Gaudet has a great story to tell about how he went from being a homeless heroin addict to a financially free rental investor. Greg's father was a real estate developer and worked for a big corporate carnival hotels and casinos company. He lived a picture-perfect childhood, but his life slowly spiraled down when his dad passed away from pancreatic cancer. Greg was only 14 and had trouble dealing with the loss. He's gone through the worst: getting in trouble, doing bad things, drinking, experimenting with drugs, and almost ending his life.  Fast forward…Greg found his way back to life and made it his mission to take action and turn his life around. That's also where getting into real estate helped him make a breakthrough and transform his life big time!  Indeed, there is nothing we love more than rags-to-riches stories, and Greg's struggle from being homeless to real estate investing and now enjoying his dream life in Maui is really inspiring and relatable. Join the conversation as Greg shares his journey and his secrets to getting his life back, and what part real estate has to play in his big comeback. Key Takeaways:02:39 Greg's background: rebellion in the lowest period of his life 10:53 The turning point to escape the grip of addiction 18:27 Building his career and eventually transitioning to real estate 22:09 On how he took the leap in real estate investing 27:51 The steps he took to finally own a rental property…and others more 36:07 An insider on Greg's partnership with Brandon Turner of “BiggerPockets” 41:41 Owning 11 rental units and doing flips and wholesale with a new partner 50:29 Greg's secret process to saving 60% from his income over the years Links:Maui Home Buyers on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/mauihomebuyers/  Maui Home Buyers on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/mauihomebuyers  Maui Home Buyers https://www.mauihomebuyers.com/ Greg Gaudet's email greg@mauihomebuyers.com  Living Off Rentals YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/c/LivingOffRentals  Living Off Rentals Facebook Group - www.facebook.com/groups/livingoffrentals  Living Off Rentals Website - www.livingoffrentals.com  Living Off Rentals Instagram - www.instagram.com/livingoffrentals

Is the popular saying “fake it ‘til you make it” really a recipe for success? According to our latest guest, Sabrina Horn, faking it ‘til you make it is actually “the worst business advice ever.” In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Sabrina suggests that authenticity is the answer for those wishing to seize business success. Listen in and gain insight into leading with authenticity in today's unpredictable business world. TAKEAWAYS The idea of “faking until we make it” has mutated through social media and pop culture, eventually becoming a way to justify dishonesty. To stay grounded, it's important to have mentors who will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.  Sometimes people “fake it” because they're completely overwhelmed. Owning up to your mistakes means you'll recover faster and maintain your integrity. We should never stop learning or we'll stagnate and lose our edge in the workplace.

It's not easy for someone to admit when they were wrong. For the second time in recorded history (no way to verify that), I was wrong. When I bring up the word “privilege” or “privileged” it can create a feeling of defensiveness for so many. It's easy to understand why; we might retort back to that and say, “No we're not privileged, I built this all myself.” Although that might be true, we need to unpack this fully so we can understand it fully. “Privilege is a special advantage that some have and others do not.” IN THIS EPISODE The true definition of privilege. Advantages and what they really are. Having privilege vs. acknowledging privilege. Why the starting point is important to recognize. Why 24 hours is not the same for everyone. The importance of transparency and accountability. Getting your intentions and messaging aligned. Owning when you are wrong and making a change.

What do you consistently every day? Or most days of the week? Shower? Brush your teeth? Go to your job? Feed your children? Exercise? You have the consistency muscle. Often times it's not the consistency we lack, it's the courage.Here's the catch, we're consistent only in areas where we've attached pain to NOT being consistent in.Let's take going to a job for example. We'll go to a job even if we don't like it because we've attached enough pain to not going. If we don't go we think we'll get fired and we'll lose our paycheck and this lose our security and our whole world will fall apart. So we keep consistently showing up, not because we want to, because we've attached enough pain to not going. What if we attached pain to NOT going after our dreams? What if we used the consistency muscles we already have to build our businesses and our dream life?

Have you spent enough of your years debating making a change?  For women feeling stress and anxiety in their careers, feeling stuck becomes the norm all too quickly. When you just don't know the right next step to take, the idea of change feels daunting.  Overcoming that fear isn't easy, but with the right direction and the unwavering support of a community that understands exactly what you've been feeling, the wheels of change start to move faster than you ever thought possible.   Today, Blake welcomes Melissa to the show to talk about the real-life results she's experienced on her Bridge to Fulfillment journey. Her story might sound familiar to many of you wondering whether or not this program can help you. Hearing her progress will leave you with a feeling of hope and the realization that your own transformation is indeed possible.  Today, you'll hear how Melissa went from a place of career instability towards something that not only gave her meaning but also taught her how to cultivate trust in her own decision-making. She shares how she overcame the fear of investing in herself and how going all-in helped her gain confidence, clarity, and direction.  What You'll Learn: • The moment Melissa knew it was time to make a change (2:52)
 • Overcoming doubt and second-guessing when it comes to seeking help (6:59)
 • Why we tend to put off investing in ourselves (9:13)
 • How the program helped Melissa find a job that she loves (17:39)
 • Why traditional career coaches rarely have a lasting impact (24:20)
 Favorite Quotes: 1. ​​I kept waiting for it to get better. I kept waiting for the change to happen. I kept waiting for the company to recognize all the things that I had done…I think for me, it was, I don't care what I have to do, I just don't want to be here anymore. —Melissa
 2. I love the support, it's almost intoxicating. It's something that I just keep wanting to come back and get that support and get that feedback and run with it. I mean, that's how corporate America should be. That's how women should be supporting women. And I never truly understood women supporting women until I was in this program. —Melissa
 3. It's a huge part of my heart to be able to change the corporate culture, woman by woman. When you understand the things that you now understand, it will change the way that you lead your team, it will change the way you lead your leader, it will change how you show up. —Blake
 4. There are a lot of solutions out there that are bandaids when we're unhappy in our careers. The problem is nobody's really getting to the root cause of what it is that's really that's misaligned in your life. What is it really that you need to move forward? —Blake
 Additional Resources: Rather than hoping the grass will be greener, identify what the RIGHT next step is.  We can help you do just that.  Get clarity on where you are on your journey to career fulfillment, where you're headed, optional paths to get there, and the right next step to take.

In this episode, Tara talks with Dr. Jamie Erwin of VIVI Women's Health about the correlation between mental and physical health, as well as the different stages of womanhood. Throughout their discussion, Jamie offers advice on coping with isolation and talking to your physician. Mental and physical health Mental and physical health are sometimes linked. Mental health issues can manifest in physical symptoms, such as anxiety causing an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. Stress can even have an impact on a woman's menstrual cycle. Jamie says she tends to see more adolescents seeking guidance about period abnormalities in January after final exams. Jamie's background and some advice on success Jamie grew up in Fort Worth and attended the University of Arkansas. She returned to Texas to attend medical school at UT Southwestern and got married to a West Point graduate after her first year. Jamie talks about the low points, the challenges of loneliness and worrying, she went through while she was in school, and her husband was deployed. For women experiencing isolation and anxiety, Jamie suggests finding someone to talk to who either has been through something similar or is a professional, which could include an OB-GYN. The most important thing a doctor can do is listen and build trust with their patients. Adolescence In this episode, Jamie walks through the different stages of womanhood, from adolescence to the reproductive years to menopause. Adolescence is a challenging time, as a young woman's body is changing, and an initial visit with a gynecologist can be a scary experience. Jamie strives not only to help normalize body differences, speaking to the negative impacts of social media, but also to create a safe space for having difficult conversations. Reproductive years Jamie describes the reproductive years as those in which many women find themselves — many are finishing education, starting careers, looking for a potential partner, etc. Women may deviate from set expectations and are often faced with pressures about starting a family, though it's a deeply personal choice. Jamie talks about the challenges of infertility and the courage she sees in women that decide to keep trying. She also discusses postpartum, as well as postpartum depression, and how taking care of a newborn is often the hardest thing a woman has ever done, likening it to running a race without knowing where the finish line is. Jamie compares mental health issues to a broken arm — they require care and time to heal. Menopause Jamie says menopause, which is defined as twelve consecutive months without having a period, is a very individualized experience unique to every woman. She explains that a woman can be perimenopausal, or experience "pre menopause," for up to 14 years, during which time she can experience hot flashes and night sweats.

This week's Misfit Entrepreneur is Liz Elting. Where to start with Liz. She co-founded TransPerfect, the world's largest provider of language and business solutions. The company does over $800 million in revenue per year and employs over 6000 in 100+ cities across the world. She has been recognized and awarded with everything from Ernst and Young's entrepreneur of the year to being named one of Forbes richest self-made women many years running. She and her story have also been highlighted in numerous books and publications. More recently, Liz is known for her philanthropic efforts with her foundation, the Elizabeth Elting Foundation which works to advance the economic, social, and political equity of women and marginalized people. I'm excited for Liz to share her story with you and the lessons she's learned along the way. www.ElizabethEltingFoundation.org Growing up, Liz lived in a number of different places. Everywhere from New York to Portugal to Canada. She went to college in the US and realized she could pursue her passion of languages. She just didn't know what she would do with it – but her dad told her to follow her passion. After college she worked the translation industry in New York. She found a company that was the largest translation company in the world that helped combine her passion for language and business. She worked in the company for 3 years and learned the industry. She then went back to school and got her MBA. While in business school, she decided to go into finance and briefly tried out investment banking. She realized she made a huge mistake and then started TransPerfect in November of 1992. In 2018, she sold half of her company and started her foundation. When we first spoke, you said, “The harder you work, the luckier you get.” Explain that… That is Liz's mantra ever since she grew up. She really felt it when she started her company working 100 hours per week. She delayed gratification and it paid off. She had to work intensely and not quit and the more she put in and more focused she was, the more successful the company became. At the 9:30 mark, we discuss the first products developed and how Liz got her initial clients, then scaled… At the other company she was at, they translation work for companies, but Liz knew there was so much more that they needed. She knew that everything needed to be able to work in every language. The first product was standard translation services for companies, but the goal was to become the end-to-end solution. The goal was to do anything in a foreign language to scale. Over time they talked to their clients and really listened. They needed things like staffing and litigation support and content management services. Then they found a way to offer it to them. Talk about going through the stages of business growth – which ones did you feel were the hardest? The first million is by far the hardest. It is much harder to go from $0-$1 million than from say $5 mil to $500 mil because by that time, you have built the teams, systems, client base, etc. Initially, you don't have that. One of the core values was “Own It” and so when they started in a new market or sale, it was set up like that - employees owned it. It was then that had to build the first million in the market, etc. The sales teams had to work very hard. Tell us about the core values. What are they and how have they made a difference for the company? The core values end up being what is important to you and your life. So, for Liz, integrity and honesty was critical. One of the questions she would ask in an interview is “What would you do if you saw someone stealing money out of the cash register?” The answers were eye-opening. Owning it was another value that she embodied, and it became another core value. They ultimately had 10 core values. Is there a skillset or mentality that you feel is most important for success in today's world? You must have the work ethic. You must be a leader and stand out from the crowd. Being true to yourself and do what is right. Another value was service, and businesses need to spoil their customers and look at how to stand apart. What did you do to stand out in the area of service? Being there for the client 24/7 in the early days, but that was not sustainable. When they tried to pay employees to work holidays and other things, it led to turnover, so they had to find ways to “be there” for their clients, but in a more manageable way. They found ways to do this by adding in offices in different times, creating shifts, giving comp time, etc. They also did special VIP events for clients. They found ways to produce results for clients faster than the competition. Filling gaps in products or services clients said they needed. They were also innovating and figuring out how to help client in better ways. Talk to us about the entrepreneur journey. What have you learned about how to consistently succeed as an entrepreneur? No matter what – staying true to your core values. When times are challenging – you must continue to put the money into sales and marketing. Find ways to align incentives and compensation so that when the company does well or the employee does well, they are well taken care of. This is for all people in the company. Focus on employee morale. Don't just spoil the clients but do you best to do so for the employees as well. What are the most important things leaders should do to ensure success and make sure they are doing the best for their employees and organization? In the early days, the leader does everything, but over time, they must delegate to scale. To do that, you must find the best people, so your interview process is most important. Hire slowly, fire quickly. It's the employee you keep around that can give you the ulcer, not the one you don't have. Once you have your people – focus on training, development, and retention. The only way to lead is to lead by example. You cannot inspire people to do things you haven't done or aren't willing to do. Advice for CEO's? What have you learned about being a great CEO and how it is different from other areas of leadership? In the early days, it is a lot of doing and doing everything. Then it is a lot of hiring, training, and delegating and retaining (the middle stage) Then, it is having the vision for what's next and making sure the innovations are happening. It is thinking long-term and getting the feedback from the people on the front lines. It is dealing with clients at all stages. And always maintaining a connection with the employees. 1 on 1's with people at all stages and levels it very important as well. Anything you've learned in selling your company and starting into Philanthropy? It was wonderful to lead the company for 26 years. There were things she saw and bigger challenges/issues that needed to be improved. There is a lot of work to be done. Philanthropy is entrepreneurship in a different way. ​ What was the most surprising thing that happened on your journey? Hiring an entry level person when they first started and then watching them grow and see what they could become. It was so rewarding and exciting and she learned so much from it. The learning is continuous and never ends!   Best Quote: Work today like no one else will, so you can live and give tomorrow like no one else can.   Liz's Misfit 3: ​ If you don't think you can be successful as an entrepreneur, you can. No matter what happens to you or go through, success is still possible. Hard work. Work today like no one else will, so you can live and give tomorrow like no one else can. Integrity and honesty are keys to living a great life and running a good business.   Show Sponsors: Athletic Greens (Free Year Supply of Vitamin D and 5 Travel Packs) AthleticGreens.com/Misfit Five Minute Journal www.MisfitEntrepreneur.com/Journal
