    Ever have a night where your dreams seem really vivid and maybe even disturbing? This episode begins by looking at the typical causes of really weird and vivid dreams. https://www.livestrong.com/article/13773031-vivid-dreams/ It may be a tough sell in our culture but being humble can actually be a powerful and effective way to build confidence, strengthen relationships and achieve success. That's according to Daryl R. Van Tongeren, an associate professor of psychology at Hope College and author of the book Humble: Free Yourself from the Traps of a Narcissistic World (https://amzn.to/3QCxemC). Daryl joins me to explain how a little humility can go a long way to improving anyone's life. When you look up at the sky at night, do you ever wonder what a star actually is, how it was formed and how it got there? Or how planets and moons form? Are there other planets out there in space that can sustain life? Here to explain some of the mysteries of the night sky is Emily Levesque. She is a professor of astronomy at the University of Washington and author of the book The Last Stargazers: The Enduring Story of Astronomy's Vanishing Explorers (https://amzn.to/3zQ6oAM).

    What do you do when you start to feel that your brand no longer reflects the evolution and growth of your business?When you start to feel, dare I say it, self-conscious when you're asked about your business at a party, sure that the name “Stevie Says Social” will diminish your authority or how seriously you're taken at networking events?When friends and family still ask you to try and help them get into their Instagram account, because your name still has “social” in it despite NOT teaching social media at all — “Don't you have a little social media business — I only have 50 followers too, and I'm hoping you can help?!” they say, innocently.And when that nagging feeling, deep down, suggests a growing disconnect between the time, effort and importance you place on your business, and the way it is viewed in the eyes of those hearing “Stevie Says Social” for the first time.You re-brand, that's what — and this year, that's exactly what I'm doing.Right now? My brand kind of feels like I'm still getting around in the same outfit that I wore when I was a gawky teenager. I feel a sense of urgency to “grow up”, and for the vision that I have for my business, the importance that I place on it and the true impact that it has on so many lives through the people that we serve.I'm tired of feeling silly saying “Stevie Says Social” when someone asks what my business name is.I'm READY to step into bigger shoes and build a vision that doesn't depend solely on me.And, if I'm really honest? I feel held hostage by an identity that doesn't fit anymore.And so, as I embark on MY branding and business evolution (of which MUCH more will be shared later on in the year), today's podcast episode is dedicated to five signs that might be an indication to YOU that it's time to do the same.Here's five signs that it might be time to rebrand your business:✔️ You've experienced a significant business evolution (but your brand hasn't kept up)✔️ You're not proud to share your brand with strangers✔️ Your mission has grown, and no longer fits the container of your brand✔️ You no long want it to be just about you✔️ A change is as good as a holiday--------Want to create, launch and scale a flagship online course?Here's a few ways I can help you:1.

    On this episode of Investors & Operators, Jordan sits down with Chiara Bell, CEO of Care Heroes. Together, they discuss: Chiara Bell's commitment in healthcare and her journey to becoming an entrepreneur Lack of attention on the home healthcare industry in today's society What it takes to become a successful entrepreneur ...and so much more. While home healthcare is one of the most vital workforces, our society is not giving it the same gratitude as it should be. In this episode, Chiara Bell, CEO of Care Heroes, and Jordan had an interesting discussion about the overview of the home healthcare industry and the difficulties and investment opportunities underneath it. With 20+ years of experience in healthcare, Chiara shared her personal journey,  from a graduate of Albany Law School in 1994 to devoting her career to home healthcare. They also discussed topics such as balancing the long-term vision and execution as entrepreneurs, strategies on pricing, and their entrepreneurial journey and stories. Being an entrepreneur is not an easy task, however. Chiara revealed the lowest point on her entrepreneurial journey and how she still held firmly to what she initially believed through the hardest times. Let's tune in and check it out! Chiara Bell's Bio: Chiara Bell is CEO of Care Heroes. Care Heroes is a platform for communicating, supporting and incentivizing the caregiver workforce. Paid caregivers, home health aides and family members are  integral parts of the healthcare delivery system. They combine reported caregiver insights with clinical data to drive an innovative health and wellness engagement program for anyone connecting with caregivers in the home. Prior to Care Heroes, Chiara Bell was CEO and founder of Careticker. Careticker was the world's first web and mobile platform that helped caregivers track and earn incentives for the caregiving activities they provided to their loved ones. They worked with Medicare Advantage Plans and Medicaid Managed Care Organizations to engage with the most overlooked population affecting patient outcomes - the caregiver. Prior to Careticker, Ms. Bell founded ENURGI, the first on-line marketplace for private, in-home caregiving services. In December 2008, ENURGI was acquired by Univita Health, a private equity backed independent aging platform led by industry leaders Ben Lytle and Hugh Lytle.

    In this episode, you'll also hear:Why copywriting is such a high-demand, high-income skillCommon misconceptions about copywritingThe basic skills you need to succeed as a copywriterCoach Tam's personal recommendation for a program to get you started and walk you through every step of the processThere's a lot of talk in the Christian author community about ways to make more money. Often, the recommendation is to niche down, figure out who your tribe is, and then find ways to market your work more effectively. If that's your goal, you'll definitely want to go back and check out Part 2 of this Published and Paid series. So far, we've covered three paths you can take to make money as a writer, and now it's time to take a look at the fourth path. This path is often overlooked. In fact, it's probably thought of even less than public speaking or coaching. But it's not something you should sleep on, because it's a field of writing that will always be in demand: the field of copywriting. What Is Copywriting?Copywriting is a high-income skill to possess as a writer, because organizations large and small are always in need of someone to produce compelling, persuasive, and interesting marketing materials. As a copywriter, you can be that someone. You can earn a very good income using the writing skills you already have to create ad copy, web content, brochures, and much more. And the best part? You can often set your own hours, and you can literally work from anywhere in the world. Copywriting is the art of being persuasive, so there are a lot of things you could write that fall into this category, from sales letters to emails to social media posts and more. And all of these content pieces share the same goal: to get people to take action. Another important thing to know about copywriting is that it's a skill you can learn, even if you don't feel like you are particularly persuasive right now. (Trust me, I know this from experience!)Copywriting MisconceptionsBefore we get into some tips on how to get started with copywriting, let's first address the proverbial elephant in the room. You see, copywriting is often misunderstood. It falls in the category of marketing, and many of us have negative belief systems about marketing. It's often perceived as a dark art, a way to manipulate people into buying things they don't need. But nothing could be further from the truth!Copywriting is simply the art of crafting compelling copy. The goal is to find the right words to communicate your message in a way that resonates with your audience. That's really all that it is.Are there some unscrupulous individuals who use copywriting for less-than-honorable purposes? Of course there are. But let's be honest, there are people in every field who do not operate in a way that is consistent with Christian values. Copywriting is no exception, but – just like in every other field – the vast majority of professionals in this field are ethical. They only want to help themselves and other business owners and organizations achieve their goals. So it's true that not all copywriters are created equal. And you can be a part of changing the narrative by operating your copywriting business in a way that honors God. Another reason copywriting is often misunderstood has to do with the word “persuasion.” For some people, persuasion is associated with manipulation and coercion. But it doesn't have to be. You see, there's nothing inherently wrong with using words to influence someone's thoughts or actions. And let's be real: we all do that every day, whether we consider ourselves a copywriter or not. Have you ever tried to convince your boss to give you a raise, or your significant other to go on a date with you? That's persuasive communication, and it's the same skill a copywriter uses to convince people to buy a product, click a link, or sign up for a newsletter. Persuasion is a skill that we use every single day, and you can absolutely use it in a way that both honors God and helps the company meet their objectives. What's more, as you develop this skill and put it to use for other people, it will also make you better at marketing your own books and message. 3 Basic Skills for Copywriting SuccessThere's no perfect formula for becoming a great copywriter, but there are certain skills and qualities that will help you succeed in this field. You might have some of these basic skills already, but if not, you can likely develop them with a little bit of work. 1. Good copywriters are good communicators. Most of us know that good writing must be clear and concise. After all, who wants to read a rambling essay, a sloppy email, or a book that just goes on and on with no end? But what most people don't realize is that clear, concise writing is especially important for anyone who wants to become a highly paid copywriter. In the world of advertising and marketing, every word counts. So the best copywriters are able to distill complex thoughts into concise, powerful prose. However, if you aren't confident you can write clearly and concisely, that doesn't necessarily mean you can't become a good copywriter. It just means you need to work on those writing skills. In addition to expressing yourself clearly and concisely in writing, being a good communicator also means understanding the needs and expectations of your client or audience. In other words, your writing can't just be good; it needs to be effective at reaching the audience you're writing for. Think about it this way: even if you're using copywriting to market your own books, you have to understand the audience's needs so you can create material that meets their expectations, right? It's the same if you're working with a copywriting client. You have to understand who their audience is, who they're trying to reach, and what goals that audience is trying to accomplish, because that will help you target your writing more effectively. And that will help you create content that delivers value. 2. Good copywriters are creative and think outside the box. Often, copywriting requires you to come up with original, attention-grabbing solutions to promoting a product or service.That's essential, because the client is coming to you because they don't have that skill. They know their products and services, but they don't know how to present them in a way that grabs attention and prompts people to take action. As a writer, you probably already know the importance of being creative and thinking outside the box. You already use those skills in your own writing, whether you write fiction or nonfiction. As a copywriter, you'll simply take those same skills and mindset and apply them to coming up with fresh ideas to set yourself apart from the competition. And the better you get at doing this, the higher the rates you'll be able to charge. Yes, creativity can be challenging. You may be tempted to wait for inspiration, and if you do, inspiration may never come. Instead, you have to learn to inspire yourself to write. How? By creating an environment that inspires you to take action. Sometimes this means taking a break from writing and doing something completely different. For example, once you have the basic concept you need to write about, you could take a walk, watch a movie, or read a book on that subject to get more familiar with it. Sometimes you have to take yourself out of “writing mode” and expose yourself to new experiences. This opens you up to new possibilities and gives your mind the opportunity to come up with fresh ideas.3. Good copywriters are well-organized and detail-oriented, able to manage multiple projects at once. To maximize your income, you'll need to work with multiple clients. And each of those clients will have unique deadlines, needs, and expectations. That means you need to be good at juggling! It also means you need to ensure the copy you put out is good. It should be user-friendly and easy to read, with great attention to detail and on-point spelling and grammar. The goal is to produce high-quality work that meets your clients' expectations. Copywriting is always in demand, and chances are good that after you work with a client, they'll need a copywriter again for other projects down the road. So if you knock it out of the park the first time, they're likely to come back to you with further needs. So how do you ensure you're meeting client expectations? By developing skills in these basic areas:Organization: Manage your time well so you can meet deadlines. Pay attention to the details of spelling, grammar, etc. Take advantage of online tools to stay organized, check for errors, and keep track of dates and tasks.Staying on top of trends: Copywriting as a skill has existed for a long time. But there are always new and exciting ways to convey information, and the client base is always changing and evolving. The best copywriters stay up-to-date on what's working now and constantly adjust their writing approach accordingly. With all this in mind, if you have good communication skills, are creative and can think outside the box, and are well-organized and detail-oriented with the ability to manage multiple projects at once, then you are already well on your way to becoming a successful copywriter. Take Action TodayThere are a number of different ways to get started with copywriting. But one of the best ways is to go through courses or programs that will help you take the concepts you've read about in books and put those skills into practice. If you're looking for a good program to guide you through the process of developing your copywriting skills, check out our friends at the American Writers and Artists Institute (AWAI). Their training program equips you with everything you need to know about copywriting, from the basics of grammar and punctuation to more advanced concepts like persuasion and marketing. Best of all, you'll be able to put your new skills to use right away. Whether you're looking for a six-figure income or just some extra spending money, AWAI can help you to get started. So what are you waiting for? Get started today, and watch the world of copywriting open up before you! Even if you don't think you're interested in taking a course right now, why not just take one small step in that direction by checking out what programs are available and asking yourself if this copywriting path could create additional income streams for you and your family? BIO:My name is Tamara "Coach Tam" Jackson and I am a published author, Facebook© Certified Digital Marketer, host of the Top 100 Publishing Secrets podcast, and founder of The Christian Authors Network (C.A.N.)

She joined the company because this was the first brand she found that does more for people and the planet than they talk about. While this sounds like any marketer's dream, narrowing down the messaging and the direction the brand should be taking when you have so much to say has been quite challenging. She provides valuable insight into how to build a brand by finding the balance between owning the thing that makes your product special and owning the thing that gets it into a consumer's cart. For all this and other helpful advice on how to build a brand, tune in today!Key Points From This Episode:Why making a sustainable CPG product a household name is so challenging. How building a brand is a balance between owning the thing that makes you special and owning the thing that gets you into a consumer's cart. The challenge of mission-driven brands settling on one key takeaway.How companies benefit from hiring consumers because they don't have to figure out what makes a consumer tick.How Pilar decided on the direction the brand should be taking from many possible options.The three pillars of Alter Eco's brand strategy and which two they chose to focus on and why.How Pilar's background in economics provided a framework for understanding human behavior at scale. How Pilar's different experiences at Clorox and Blue Bottle Coffee Company became the perfect foundation for her current job at Alter Eco.The difference between a brand marketer and a brand manager and how this varies across different-sized companies.Paid media versus influencer and PR and why Alter Eco does both. The biggest challenge of scaling now that Alter Eco's brand has been updated.How Pilar envisions the industry and the world evolving towards more sustainable products. The shift Pilar has noticed away from a minimalist aesthetic to one that is more colorful, detailed, and sensorial. Thoughts on how consumers are increasingly more interested in the simple things in life.How Pilar hopes the pandemic will impact consumers going forward.The marketing books that Pilar and Gage have found useful.Links Mentioned in Today's Episode:Pilar Ochi Alter EcoClorox Blue Bottle Coffee CompanyDecoded: The Science Behind Why We Buy Influence: The Psychology of PersuasionGage Mitchell on LinkedInModern SpeciesEvolve CPG CommunityEvolve CPG EmailEvolve CPG

    Devin: What is your superpower? Chris: We collectively as a group here, the marketplaces, ourselves, folks like yourselves, associations, marketing agencies—all of us are working collectively to build an industry out of thin air. This did not exist six years ago. There were no online marketplaces to go and invest in alternatives like startups. We are building something from nothing. And when people hear startups, they think, “move fast and break things.” Move fast, move fast, move fast. It’s true because if you think about how long it takes a big corporation to do something simple, like change the prices on their product or whatever it may be, it could take years. Within a startup, you go from zero to an entire business in a matter of weeks, months, years, so on and so forth. But things still don’t move nearly as quickly as people ever think. And I think my superpower, above all else to date that’s allowed me to build this business, is patience and the practice of patience.Frankly, I don’t remember when a guest and I covered so much important ground in so little time. Don’t miss my conversation with Christopher Lustrino, the founder and CEO of KingsCrowd.SuperCrowd22Chris will be speaking at SuperCrowd22, our two-day virtual conference on impact crowdfunding and community capital. This event is for you!“One of the cool things about building our business is that we get to watch how the entire world of equity crowdfunding is forming, what investor sentiment is like, what their behavior is like, what startup founder behavior is like,” Chris says.“This is an incredible place to be in the world at this moment in time,” Chris continues. “So, it’ll be fun to dive in and tell folks more about what it is that’s happening all around us as this industry develops.”KingsCrowd is tracking every deal in the sector, so he has a great perspective on the industry. Don’t miss it!Readers can register now for half price! Paid subscribers can attend for free. (An annual subscription is just $55.)Convergence of Crowdfunding and Venture Capital“Venture capital is the only industry today that still lives offline,” Chris says. “The idea that the industry that innovated every industry will continue to live offline and act like a dinosaur is completely absurd to me.”Venture capitalists still largely source and execute deals outside of the platforms that increasingly, even angel investors use for making investments. “Nearly every financial service has moved online,” Chris says. “Health care—everything about health care is moved online. I mean, everything is moved online. I mentioned those two industries because they’re the oldest school industries and the ones that have the most risk in moving online. And yet they still have.”“What we’re going to continually see over the next decade is this continuous convergence of both of those industries coming together and venture capitalists becoming more tech-centric and being able to utilize marketplaces like Republic, Wefunder, so on and so forth, both for sourcing and executing deals,” he says.Chris sees the evidence of his prediction in two observations:VCs are finding deals by browsing crowdfunding portalsVCs are encouraging their portfolio companies to raise money thereChris has raised $7 million, primarily via crowdfunding, using NetCapital, Republic and StartEngine. KingsCrowd has over 4,000 investors, including some institutions. “We’re 25 full-time folks; we have over 10,000 paying customers.”Enjoy Every Episode!KingsCrowd’s Portfolio ToolOne of the fundamental problems of investing in crowdfunding is that your investments don’t all live in one place. “In the traditional public equity world, you most likely have a brokerage account with someone like Charles Schwab or Fidelity or Robinhood, whoever it may be. So, you see all of your individual stocks in one place,” Chris says.Not so in crowdfunding. To buy shares in a company, you need to open an account with the FINRA-registered portal offering the securities. If you invest regularly, you’ll end up with shares in a dozen companies on half-a-dozen portals. Tracking gets tricky.“Did I invest in this? I don’t remember if I invested in this,” Chris says is a common refrain. It inspired KingsCrowd to create a portfolio tracking tool that not only allows you to create a list of your holdings but also provides some updates on valuation.“We allow you to put all your investments into one place from a visual basis. Think of it as mint.com,” Chris says. “The investments don’t live there, but visually they do.”The basic portfolio tool is available with a free KingsCrowd subscription.KingsCrowd’s Search ToolKingsCrowd is more widely known for its searchable live database that allows customers to access every company raising money via Regulation Crowdfunding plus regulation A, rules similar to crowdfunding but for larger deals, plus some deals available only to accredited investors.Chris offers a hypothetical example:If you come to our site and you're an investor who likes health care, you like to invest in pre-seed companies and you like founders with a lot of experience—being able to go and find those things on 40-plus marketplaces is very challenging and very time-consuming. So, you can come to KingsCrowd and say, “Show me all the health care companies, show me the ones with the $10 Million valuation or less. Show me the pre-seed companies that fall in that bucket and show me the ones with X amount of experience within the founding team.”The search tool includes tags for impact in a variety of ways. “We have ESG [environment, social responsibility and corporate governance] tags, female founder tags, underrepresented founder tags, LGBTQ tags,” Chris says, adding that they regularly add new tags as customers request them.There are about 700 companies raising money via crowdfunding at the moment. With the KingsCrowd tool, you can find the ones that interest you in just a few minutes—not hours. You can learn to do a new search in seconds with a bit of practice.The basic search function is free, even before you create an account.KingsCrowd AnalysisChris is proud of the analysis his company provides on crowdfunding offerings. Even tiny offerings where issuers are raising less than $100,000 are covered by some data-driven analyses. Chris explains:We collect over 500 data points on each and every company that's raising capital in these markets. Financials, valuation, amount raised, how many investors are partaking, what their traction looks like, so on and so forth. We put all of this information into our database and then we compare and contrast all of the companies against one another and those key fundamentals. So if there are 500 pre-seed companies all raising capital actively, we'll look at things like their valuation versus all the other valuations out there. We're going to help you see the strengths and weaknesses in each and every business and let you do a deep dive so that you can make an informed investment decision that isn't based on hype, but is based on real facts and content.This analysis is the information KingsCrowd customers pay to access. If making better investment decisions can increase your financial return, it could, in effect, pay for itself.Chris leverages an unusual superpower to accomplish all this: patience.How to Develop Patience As a SuperpowerTo demonstrate how important patience is to the success KingsCrowd is having, Chris shared the story of its founding:When I started KingsCrowd, no one cared. I mean, no one cared. Even the players who are in this space, the marketplace and not for any negative reasons or anything like that, but even the marketplace players were like we don't care. We're trying to figure out our own thing. We don't care about the data provider. Investors didn't care, no one cared. It was like every day going out on a rowboat. If I didn't row, we weren't going anywhere. You're just rowing along, rowing along, rowing along and you're fighting the currents. You're not getting responses from anyone. I mean, it is the greatest uphill battle you will ever experience trying to build something from nothing, especially when you're not only building a new company, but you're building a new company in a new sector that's coming from nothing. It has been four and a half years. What we've accomplished, I could have never imagined over four and a half years. But what happens on a day, a month, even a six-month period? It could feel like you're moving through eggshells. It's just so challenging, and it moves so much slower in so many ways than you hope or wish.But that's the reality of it. Everything takes ten times longer than you expect and is ten times more expensive than you expect to get where you want to be.Chris’s patience is deliberate. “Recognizing what we could do as a group in a decade, that’s where I keep my eye every day,” he says. “Where are we going to be in ten years? I don’t give up on that. I just keep going and say, no matter how hard today is, tomorrow, three months, six months, a year, even two years from now. That’s not what I’m building for. I’m building for the next decade.”He’s nearly halfway through that ten-year time horizon. He’s already had some wins to brag about. He reflected on a note he’d come across recently that he’d written launching KingsCrowd. In the note, he expressed the desire to create a fund allowing investors to buy shares in many crowdfund offerings at once. KingsCrowd is doing that now.Chris routinely reminds people of the saying, “You always overestimate how much you can accomplish in a year, but underestimate what you could accomplish in many years.”He reminds his team that when KingsCrowd started, Chris was the only full-time employee. Today, four-and-a-half years later, he’s got a team of 25. He says that empathy and kindness are part of the formula for patience. Not sounding at all like a typical CEO but precisely like the CEO people love to work for, he says: We move deadlines all the time internally. There are a lot of companies that don't want to do that, that will get on your back about “How we can miss this deadline by a day or two.”I joke with them, but I say, “Listen, this product feature doesn't exist in the world. So if it doesn't exist for another week or another three weeks because someone's sick, because someone needs a vacation, because someone has something with their family, it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, it does not matter.”Being flexible and open to those things from the top and saying it's okay to miss a deadline, it's okay to push things if it's not going to work, and to remove that pressure and make people realize, we're not just working for the little win, we're working for the big long term wins. That's what matters.By following Chris’s example and his advice, you can develop patience as a superpower that will enable you to accomplish great things over the next decade.

    While we mostly focus on the relationship between Probability of Profit (POP) and credit collected as premium sellers, there also exists an important relationship between POP and debit paid. Essentially, as the POP on a long premium position increases, the debit paid also increases, which reinforces the universal principle that higher probabilities always come with a cost.

    Join Health Affairs Insider.Paid sick leave is a benefit many of us take as a given, but almost one-quarter of workers in the United States don't get any paid sick leave at all.That puts the employee in a very difficult position - reluctant to not go to work even when sick because they can't afford to lose their wages. Other high-income countries mandate sick leave and in 2012 Connecticut became the first state to adopt a sick leave mandate.Fifteen other states and the District of Columbia have followed suit.It might not be surprising to learn that paid sick leave mandates reduce the likelihood of people going to work when they're sick. But do these mandates affect the use of emergency room?Yanlei Ma from the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute joins A Health Podyssey to discusses the relationship between state paid sick leave mandates and emergency department use.Ma and coauthors published a paper in the August 2022 edition of Health Affairs examining the effect of state-level mandatory sick leave policies on emergency department visits.
