Writing is a documentation of movement. Mental growth as a creative can't be a pool of water without an outlet. Placing limitations on the distribution of process has every reason to stunt the personal growth of a creative spirit. Steps. Baby steps then an out of control leap. A learning tool. The "How To" book of accepting one's art. Only to openly admit that it's been more of a Dodge Ball game then a race to reach a purpose. In all ways the creative wanderer must find a place to pour his or her sweat.

(English) In this message Ps Lewis talks about the impact of peacemakers in these 2 points: (Matthew 5:9 NIV) Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. (Acts 9:1-2 NIV) Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord's disciples. He went to the high priest (2) and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. (Acts 9:3-6 NIV) As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. (4) He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” (5) “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. (6) “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” (Acts 9:17-18 NIV) hen Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” (18) Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul's eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, 1.Receive Jesus Peace (Internal)  (John 14:27 NIV)  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (Acts 13:47-48 NIV) For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “ 'I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.' ” (48) When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed. 2.Bring Peace to Others (External) (1 Peter 3:11 NIV) They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it. (Romans 12:18 NIV) If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. (Ephesians 4:26 NIV) “In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,

This is Kelly Orchard's Apple A Day. Sixty seconds on Wisdom, Success and Personal Growth. We're focusing on growth with 30 Days of New Habits. When you make a habit of putting yourself in somebody else's shoes, you are practicing empathy. Empathy is not sympathy. Placing yourself in somebody else's shoes doesn't show that you are weak, on the contrary, it takes a very brave and wise person to seek to understand others, especially when they are in conflict. Alfred Adler said, empathy means: "seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another." Make a habit to show empathy for others, it'll create a chain reaction of peace, understanding and wisdom that only one with an empathetic heart can acquire. And according to the Dalai Lama about compassion: “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.” This has been Kelly Orchard's Apple A Day. …Now, go out and be fruitful.   Kelly Orchard's Apple A Day is also available in print. Click here for more!

About Tess: With over forty million copies sold, New York Times bestselling thriller writer Tess Gerritsen is widely known for her Rizzoli & Isles novels, which inspired the hit TNT television series that aired for seven seasons. The iconic crime-stopping duo Jane Rizzoli & Maura Isles return in Gerritsen's new novel, LISTEN TO ME which will be available on July 5. In this episode, Mike and Tess discuss:  Placing your parents' wishes before your own Writing outside your genre The importance of curiosity to being a writer Being more adventurous Key Takeaways:  It is not easy to let go of a dream or a passion, but if you truly want to do something different with your life, there is no such thing as "too late." Breaking out of a genre is difficult, but keep writing regardless of the outcome. Simply dedicate yourself to the journey. If you're curious, there's always something new to discover in your everyday life. Following your curiosity increases your creativity and prevents you from running out of ideas that will lead to success. Be more adventurous. Do not let your fears or anxieties get in your way of enjoying life. Take risks, you can do it.

He's a multifamily syndicator, has 2300 units under management, about $185 million in real estate assets under management as well. Iven, welcome to the show.  [00:00:54] Iven Vian: Awesome. Thanks for having me, Sam. Looking forward to the opportunity to be able to share.  [00:00:58] Sam Wilson: Hey man, pleasure is mine. Same three questions I ask every guest who come to the show: in 90 seconds or less, where did you start? Where are you now? How'd you get there?  [00:01:05] Iven Vian: What did I start? Stumbled into real estate. Mother-in-law said lady's going through a divorce down the street. Why don't you buy that single-family house? Bought the house. [00:01:13] Iven Vian: Then I bought a second house, tanked me. I realized I need to get mentorship through a mentorship program. I learned about multifamily. My eyes are opened to the possibilities of multifamily, and I set my target on that and went through those long journey to be able to get to where I am today. But as you said in the intro today, we have done roughly 2300 doors, around 17 deals in about six years time.  [00:01:34] Sam Wilson: That's a lot, it's a lot of moving pieces. Today, your main role is what?  [00:01:39] Iven Vian: Yeah, my main role in Anthem Capital, there's two of us, my business partner, his name is Tariq Sattar He's focused on the transactional side, so acquiring and disposing, and I handle everything in between, operations side. [00:01:51] Iven Vian: Given my background of 20 years in the air force, I live in an operational environment, very dynamic environment my entire career. So it kind of suits me well, focusing on that piece with the multifamily business.  [00:02:04] Sam Wilson: Wow. So you handle all the asset management sides of things. Can you tell us, kind of break down what that means for you? Let's just start with that. Maybe just tell us what an asset manager does and then, you know, what it looks like.  [00:02:17] Iven Vian: Yeah, absolutely. So, given the fact that I flew B1 bombers and the air force, I kind of understand things that way still, right? And so in the flying world, you have to understand the target and then build a plan, working yourself from the target backwards, and how are you gonna be able to achieve the overall end goal and objective? [00:02:33] Iven Vian: So in this case, a multifamily investing, our overall end goal and objective is to realize the return on our investor's investments. So if we have a target return schedule of say, 8% cash on cash analyze and 90% total return over the course of five years, that's my focus. And then I am leading a team to ensure we meet or exceed those return numbers, right? And so working from the target backwards, then from day zero all the way to day of exit, I'm making sure we stay on path, right? But the way I put it is like this. I lead people and manage processes. Don't micromanage. You cast the vision, you set their eyes on the target where you want them to execute. [00:03:21] Iven Vian: And in this case, we work with a third-party property management company. We give them the expectation and provide resources for them to be able to execute and perform. And, you know, we do in a way where if they're able to hit their numbers, pocket management numbers, we're going to be able to hit our numbers when it comes to setting budgets for the property management company. [00:03:41] Iven Vian: And then we have weekly calls. I mean, you know, practically speaking, we have weekly KPI calls. They go over the performance numbers and we make real-time adjustments along the way as needed to ensure again, we hit that big picture angle of the return on investors investments.  [00:04:01] Sam Wilson: When you say that you give the property management company the tools and resources they need for execution. Can you break that down a little further for us? What tools do you feel like they need from you on a consistent basis?  [00:04:14] Iven Vian: Well, first of all, you need people to manage these assets. So how do you view that? So, for me, I view people as my greatest asset, my greatest resource. So are you going to men run the manning or you, if you have a 200 unit property, 150 unit property, you see, I'm only going to allow in a budget for one manager and one maintenance guy, and then you let them work 12 hour days and including Saturdays and maybe, you know, on holidays and then you burned them out, right? And then your property suffers as a result over the long-term or do you say, you know what, we're going to build a healthy budget when it comes to allocating proper money towards a labor line items and like, listen, you're going to go out and do it the 18, you're going to have a manager, at least an agent, a maintenance guy, and also make ready guy. [00:05:07] Iven Vian: And we're going to pay them market rate. We're going to take care of them and we're going to incentivize them for performing well. So if they were able to hit certain numbers, if it comes down to physical occupancy or hitting a certain income level, Or decreased in our delinquency by a certain percentage, over a specific period of time, then we're going to incentivize them. [00:05:28] Iven Vian: We're going to give them bonuses or we're going to give them what they want. We've got to be able to speak their language. And this is where leading people comes in to play because one particular managers didn't really care about money. She just wanted a time off to go to stay in her cabin on the lake. So that was her language. So like, okay, if you hit these numbers, you're going to get extra days off to go to your cabin and spend time on the lake. Where other managers, you know, they're motivated by money. So the way I see like this, we have alignment of interest. If the property's performing well or, and we're exceeding our baseline numbers that we need to hit, absolutely, we're going to give them bonuses. We're going to incentivize them to do so.  [00:06:07] Sam Wilson: Yeah. It sounds like a lot of that, like you said, managing the people and figuring out what it is that they want and then trying to set targets and goals such that they want to work towards getting the things that they want.  [00:06:17] Iven Vian: The other side of this, I was going to mention as well, is when you take on like value add projects, there's a capital improvement plan that you put in place and that property needs improvements. And you have a lot of ways to dissect that. Are you going to do in-house turns or are you going to hire third-party contractors to do the in-house, to do the interior improvements, right? And so on these calls, for example, asking them, we're asking the question, how much rent-ready product do you have? Do we need to bring in additional help to be able to turn these units at a timely fashion to drive our revenue growth?  [00:06:52] Iven Vian: If so then yeah, let's go out and get estimates to see how much it will cost to bring on a third party contractor, to be able to turn these units in a timely fashion. So that, to me, that's the other side of resources. You know, we're giving them approval to go out, hire third party again, not to overwork them and to create efficiencies in the overall process.  [00:07:14] Sam Wilson: Right, because those are things that the property management company is not going to have just the green light to do as they see fit. I mean, those are things that you guys have to go add additional expense that maybe you weren't counting on, right?  [00:07:26] Iven Vian: Sure. Yeah, absolutely. You know, and things change all along the way. You know, maybe we had an influx of notice to vacates where more people are leaving the property than you originally expected because you tighten down the controls a little bit more. [00:07:39] Iven Vian: And they reacted, you know, they kind of overreacted. So now you have like 20 vacancies in a particular month. Like, listen, this, find a way to get this ton and bring it again, you know, a third party to be able to turn these units.  [00:07:51] Sam Wilson: Yeah. I love that. Thanks for taking the time to kind of give us a little bit more color on what an asset manager does. Let's shift a little bit here and talk about me working a full time. And growing 2300 units at the same time. I mean, that's pretty impressive. And a lot of work how'd you do it?  [00:08:08] Iven Vian: Partnerships, hands down, partnerships, my business partner, Tariq Sattar. He and I have been working together now for, going on eight years. [00:08:18] Iven Vian: We started in a single-family space. I was a hungry investor and I wanted to buy houses. I ran out of capital, got a realtor license to sell houses to earn additional money, to put back in the houses. Tariq was my first client. Tariq ended up buying 45 houses through me over the course of two years. [00:08:36] Iven Vian: So to get to 45 houses, we looked at about 600 in the course of two years, like five a day kind of thing. So we developed a very good relationship. And it turns out Tariq is an all-star kind of individual, very financially astute man. And he and I had created this vision together that we want to pursue multifamily. [00:08:56] Iven Vian: And so I leveraged his experience from his corporate days. He was in construction business. So he was the one that was handling the calls with the attorneys, mortgage brokers, real estate brokers, while I'm flying my airplane, 24,000 feet, right? And so, but you know, when I land or on my way to the gym, or, you know, in between one place to the next, I can use to make a call like a pullover the side and, you know, send out a quick email, things like that. [00:09:24] Iven Vian: Or I can have, you know, late afternoon calls with the property management company and still lead people that way. And so that's how we're able to build Anthem Capital from ground up through our partnership.  [00:09:37] Sam Wilson: Got it. Yeah. I mean, that's a lot of moving pieces and you're flying, you were based stateside or you were based overseas? [00:09:44] Iven Vian: Stateside. My last half of my career is in the reserves. That's the other piece too, is that I didn't pursue a lot of opportunity in the military world or I could have, right? Because that requires more commitment time. And first of all, you know, committed to my career ultimately, and I had to make sure I kept arms length distance between my personal aspirations and my military career. [00:10:09] Iven Vian: But, you know, I found a way to have a somewhat flexible career while doing that. And so you have to ask yourself, what are your priorities in life? What is your overall goal? Do you want to make it big in the corporate world? You know, we're speaking to some other investor looking to jump into multifamily, or are you willing to like, not be on the corporate ladder, you know, promotion track so that you can have time to focus on multifamily. For me, I gave up the idea of being a general someday or a Colonel, you know, I was fine with that because I wanted to do this. [00:10:39] Sam Wilson: Right. Yeah. It sounds like finding what it is that you wanted. And then, like you said, find it, what'd you say early on there, you found the target and worked your way back.  [00:10:47] Iven Vian: Yeah, yeah. Right? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I just wanted it and like, you got to have passion about this thing. And you got to commit. A hundred percent, you got to commit. You cannot be one foot in one foot out. And, you know, for those that are married, have families or significant others, like it has to be like, you know, a solidified front across the board, right? You got to have those difficult conversations with your significant other and make sure there's continuity there because you know, involves a commitment, which means traveling a lot or going to conferences or being on late-night meetings. [00:11:18] Iven Vian: Or not being available for certain family functions, things like that, right. That's where the rubber really hits the road, right. But, you know, once you start seeing the result happen, you realize there's something to this business and there's that scary interim period of like, I'm not pursuing military, multifamily hasn't quite taken off yet. [00:11:37] Iven Vian: And I know money's coming in right now and I'm exposed. Like I have a lot of money out there in the market and very little on capital right now. I think it's the commitment, the steadfastness, the clear vision that allows you to get through that moment. [00:11:50] Sam Wilson: No, I think that is great. I think all of us have been there at some point. [00:11:54] Okay. Yeah. We're figuring this out. There's a lot of moving pieces. I like the way you put it. That was so poetic. There's a lot of money out there that we've put out in the market and it's like, okay, we're pulling something on that faith and confidence to move. Keep moving forward. I think is the key. Talk to us about the finances side of things. It's, we're talking about that. Are you responsible in any way for raising capital or is that all on the business partner side?  [00:12:15] Iven Vian: We're always raising capital to everywhere, every day.  [00:12:18] Sam Wilson: Tell me about that process for you guys. What have been some things that you feel like you've done really well, that kind of helped you guys raise capital for your opportunities? [00:12:26] Iven Vian: You know, I started out with the multifamily mentorship network and mentorship program that had an ecosystem. You know, I didn't know a lot of people with millions of dollars, right? So I joined the ecosystem in my case is Brad Sumrok based out of Dallas. And that's where I started raising capital. Then again, through relationships because real estate, like anything in life, is a relationship business. [00:12:47] Iven Vian: I found people who already had an investigative database and developed a partnership with them. And they came into our deals as Co-GPs and they provided their network to help raise capital for the deal. You know, on my first investment, my first deal was a three-property portfolio, about a $2.6 million raise, you know, nine months into this program. [00:13:09] Iven Vian: We raised $2.6 million to take down a first transaction, leveraging relationships. As you get more experienced, you realize you have to develop a marketing platform. So I have a marketing platform back then that I'm building. I have a marketing team now, you know, I'm not quite there yet, but I'm working on the newsletters, social media posts, Instagram, LinkedIn, all of those things that you need to do to be top of mind when you're out there raising capital. You know, it starts with the mindset of you're always raising capital. [00:13:40] Iven Vian: You know, it's not compart, you're not, you don't compartmentalize that. You never know who you're going to run into, right? And so part of that is like, what it is you do? Do I buy my own apartments? No. What I actually do is this is that I help people invest passively in deals to maybe meet or exceed their income, to earn passive income and to save money on taxes. So like, if you go out about your day with that mentality, it kind of changes, your perspective and how you approach your day when you talk to people.  [00:14:11] Sam Wilson: Right, I like that a lot and it, you know, it's often been said, and I'm not sure if I agree with it or not, but it's a nice idea is that, Hey, you know what you have, investors need and or they say that the investor needs you more than you need the investor. I've heard that phrase as well. Yeah, I think it is good to a point. It starting out though, for people who are looking to scale their business. It's not exactly any comfort, cause it's still like, man, that just seems like that's a tall hill to climb, you know, starting out whether or not they need you or not, it's finding and locating them and then like you said, like you gave away the key, there was that, you know, you joined a group that had an ecosystem that already kind of understood this process out of the gate and people like you coming in that maybe didn't have the deep bench of capital raising experience could get in there and kind of figure out a way to flourish early on. It sounds like that was a key for you. [00:14:56] Iven Vian: A hundred percent absolutely would not be here today. If it wasn't for the ecosystem that I joined immensely, shortened that timeline for me to get up and running.  [00:15:06] Sam Wilson: When you see people, and I'm sure you've seen them inside of that group, cause there, you know, there's always successes and there's always failures. What do you see some of the keys are for the people that join a group like Brad Sumrok's group or another one. What are some things you see them do that help them scale? Maybe that when you see some others, you know, potentially coming in languish, what's the difference?  [00:15:27] Iven Vian: One of the key differentiating factors I think is persistence and taking massive action. Again, it goes back to what I said earlier. The process will test you how committed you are. You can easily get discouraged when you put in 50 offers and you get zero. LOI is out of the process, right? While you're driving in a submarket, you know, days on end looking for opportunities and nothing comes up around. The same time. [00:15:57] Iven Vian: Those people that don't give up, that stay persistent eventually over time, they will get the first deal. And now they're on the map and that's the hardest part is getting to that first one. But now they have a track record. Now they have some credibility and brokers now, you will now be on the brokers radar for the next opportunity. [00:16:16] Iven Vian: Okay. And then that first opportunity is your opportunity to the next opportunity. That's one thing that, for me, it's important. Like I want to make sure I'm handling homebase before I go and go find another opportunity, right.? And so like, if you want to scale and grow, well, treat that first one, like all, of actually treat all of them like they're your own child and you know, they're babies that need a lot of attention, right? If you don't have the bandwidth to do so, put together a team that can provide the correct oversight you need. Again, to answer your question, it's just persistence, persistence, digging deeper. What is your why? You know, and really check yourself and understand what is that you're doing and why you're doing it. And once you have clarity in that, the action piece takes care of itself. You will take massive action, right? You will push through the terror barrier if you will, and keep at it, knowing that it's yours.  [00:17:14] Sam Wilson: I love it. That great and well earned and hard-earned advice you've just given. Iven, thank you for taking the time to come on the show today and tell us about your business. Tell us about your history there in the air force and how you scaled to 20, 2300 units, you know, finding partners to raising capital, to really how to the gate, hit the ground running and, you know, not give up. So really appreciate you taking the time to share. And of course, talking about the asset management side of the business as well, which is a piece of this equation. I think that obviously that's the part that really matters. That's the part that makes this business either work or not work, but it's oftentimes overlooked. It's the position that most people don't really think about on their team. Like, oh, we don't need an asset manager. So obviously you are extremely valuable in what you do and how you do it. So thank you for taking the time to break that down as well.  [00:17:58] Iven Vian: Absolutely. Thank you so much, Sam. It's been an honor. It's been a pleasure. You have a great rest of the day.  [00:18:03] Sam Wilson: Absolutely, you as well. One last question for you, if our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you and deals that you guys are working on, what is the best way to do that?  [00:18:10] Iven Vian: Absolutely. Yes. Come find us at our website. anthemcp.com Anthem as in like National Anthem, C as in cat, P as in papa.com anthemcp.com. Connect with us. Fill out a contact form there, we'll stay in touch.  [00:18:27] Sam Wilson: Awesome, Iven, thank you again. Have a great rest of your day.  [00:18:29] Iven Vian: Absolutely. You too.

What Is Passive Income?

Passive income is often seen as the holy grail of the side hustle. There are many - especially online - who present themselves as passive income specialists, lying on a beach all day, sipping fruity beverages, and listening to their phone cha-ching to alert them to new sales.  If that sounds too good to be true, it's because it is. For a long time passive income was dangled in front of people as a “set it and forget it” method of making money. Just do X, Y, and Z, then sit back and watch the money roll in. Of course, that's not really how it works. Passive income, in the sense of making money for doing nothing, doesn't exist.  On the other hand, I woke up to 2 sale notifications this morning, meaning I made over $100 while I slept, so passive income is a real thing. And as a teacher who doesn't want to hustle and grind my way into early retirement, it's key to running a side hustle that doesn't make me more stressed out. Let's explore the real world of passive income. What is Passive Income? For today's purposes we're talking about ways to earn money that you can automate or fully delegate to others so that you aren't active in the exchange of goods. There are a number of ways to do this as a blogger because many of the primary streams of income bloggers have available to them are naturally passive. Sell other people's things One easy way to get started with passive income is to sell other people's products or services. Placing ads on your blog is perhaps the easiest thing to do because once you set them up, you don't have to do anything else. If you're using an ad service like AdSense the ads they're shown will even be based upon their search history, making them very targeted. Affiliate marketing is similar, in that you just place links into your content and let people purchase through the other company. Because you have to select appropriate products or services to recommend, there's a bit more work that goes into this than ads, but it's still highly hands-off. Sell premade digital items Items like ebooks and printables are things you can make with software you already have (and know how to use) that you can sell on your website. Courses are similar, but will typically require additional software to build and host. These types of products require an upfront investment of time (and sometimes money for software), but once they're done, you can automate the sales and delivery process with relative ease.  Use other services to help Whatever you sell, whether it be digital or physical products, you can utilize a number of third-party services or tools to allow you to automate or delegate the sales and delivery.  For example, Amazon has a print-on-demand option for authors who want to offer physical books, and if you want to sell through Amazon you can use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) so they hold, handle, and ship your products. Invest Investing is perhaps the closest you can get to fully passive income. All it takes is a bit of money, choose your investments, then sit back and watch them grow. Of course, not all investments grow, so make sure that you're not investing more than you can afford to lose. Even if that's just a few bucks you can use a service like M1 to get started. Use this referral link to get a $10 credit when you invest $100. Passive Income Misconceptions Regardless of what it may look like on social media, or in ads for passive income programs people are selling, there's no such thing as 100% passive income. Every business requires work to maintain it. Maintenance At a bare minimum, you will need to maintain your website, sales platform, and any other tools you use to run your business. Team management Some business owners choose to be hands-off with their businesses, but you still need to manage their teams, approve decisions, and help steer the company in the direction you, as the owner, want it to go. Customer service It's estimated that about 3% of customers are going to need extra help with your product. They may need help logging into your program, tech support, or to reset their password. Some may even just want you to walk them through things to make them feel more secure about their purchase. Product creation In order to sell an ebook, you have to write the book first. In order to sell a course, you have to build the program first. This seems obvious, but many people forget that passive income is only passive after you've created the product. There is a lot of up front work that goes into passive income! Oftentimes it's suggested that people looking to get into passive income start with a more traditional model, like 1:1 coaching. This can help you get to know your audience, learn what they need support with, find areas where they get tripped up, and internalize their language for use in your marketing. It is possible to jump right into passive income, be prepared to start small, tweak as you go. For example, I created my smaller courses Content Made Simple and Wicked Easy Website a year ago, tested them and got feedback, then moved on to my signature course, Teacher Blog Academy. Doing Passive Income Right There are 3 things every blogger needs to know in order to create sustainable passive income. Give your audience what they want. No matter which path you take to creating passive income, you need to offer things your audience is interested in and likely to buy. If your blog is about crafts and you're trying to sell steak, you're not going to be rolling in the dough. Make it easy for them to buy. Don't bury links on pages that people have to click, click, click through to get to. Put ads and affiliate links in places where people are going to look, and share links to your own digital products in as many places as possible without being obnoxious. This includes in posts, on pages, on social media, and in your emails. Provide value first. Rule number 1 for bloggers is to provide value. Your readers aren't coming to read a website full of ads. They want advice, inspiration, tips and tricks, hacks, information, how-tos, and other helpful stuff. That's what will keep them coming back, believing in you as a source of authority, and trusting the products and services you create and recommend. Remember that passive income takes time to grow and consistent effort to maintain. You will need to build an audience and cultivate their trust before they become loyal customers. You'll then need to continue the cycle of attracting and nurturing new readers again and again. Here's the thing, passive income as it's presented in internet ads may not exist, but there are ways to make earning money easier and less dependent on you for every step. As a teacher, you've got your hands full, so anything you can do to simplify making money is a win in my book.

Continuing with our Daily Leadership Tip series, day #5 is to Avoid Placing the Burden of Your Problems onto Other People.Have you ever known someone who, after any setback, had an excuse and typically laid the blame elsewhere?   I'm ashamed to say that at one point in my life, I was one of those people.  Luckily, at one point in my career, I had a good friend that sat me down and said, “You can continue to come up with more excuses, or you can use less energy by just solving the problem.”It hit me like a ton of bricks.  It wasn't the economy or my manager. It wasn't my coworker who was causing me to fail.  I realized that every mistake or problem that had ever occurred in my life had one common variable.  -- ME! At that point, I took a good look at myself.  I looked at some of the mistakes I had made and asked myself, how can I avoid making the same mistake again?  I started to use every obstacle as a learning experience.  Don't get me wrong, I still make excuses on occasion, but they are few and far between, and they no longer define me.  Since I made that conscious decision, my career has really taken off. There are some people out there who make themselves feel better by bringing other people down.  They revel in their ability to know who had a heart attack, who is getting divorced, who is stealing office supplies, and more.  The more they can bring other people down, the better that they feel.Good leaders are the ones who stop this type of behavior in its tracks by just refusing to participate and standing up for coworkers who aren't there to defend themselves.  If you want to be a great leader, avoid placing the burden of your problems onto other people. Week #1: Build Trust and Rapport QuicklyPrinciple #5: Avoid Placing the Burden of Your Problems onto Other Peoplehttps://www.leadersinstitute.com/daily-leadership-tip-5-avoid-placing-the-burden-of-your-problems-onto-other-people/

Dear reader, it was bad. But she wasn't alone. Together with Gabrielle and some other friends, Rebecca formed a monthly dinner party called WWDP (Women With Dead Parents, obviously). The WWDP conversations were wide-ranging, but the common denominator was a shared understanding. A general “I get it.” No apologies, no accusations, no questions asked. Other than: Who brought the chocolate cake, and can I get the recipe? Because if Rebecca couldn't have parents, dammit, she could at least have chocolate cake—not to mention friends who understood the particular nuances of going through profound loss way before they expected to. With Modern Loss, Rebecca hopes to bring that refreshing openness to a broader audience, and community, who could use their own place setting at the table of loss. Rebecca has been a lifelong organizer of communities, both public and private. From getting her masters in journalism from Columbia University, to accompanying Stephen Colbert on a Peabody Award-winning quest to get to know all 435 U.S. Representatives, to helping to grow a leading network of Jewish creatives, Rebecca has always found strength in numbers, and bringing those numbers together. She has contributed pieces across media, including TIME, NBC Think, The New York Times, Marie Claire, Refinery29, Elle Decor, and Tablet Magazine's podcast, Vox Tablet; has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning; and has spoken at Chicago Ideas Week, Amazon, HBO, and Experience Camps‘ annual benefit, where she was its 2017 honoree. She has also led Modern Loss retreats at Kripalu; keynoted for several organizations, including Good Grief and Capital One; and is known for putting her special touch of levity, depth and a bit of comfortable weirdness on Modern Loss' live storytelling events. Rebecca lives in New York and the Massachusetts Berkshires with her husband, two little boys, and labradoodle. Keep up with her on Twitter @rebeccasoffer, where she regularly tweets at 3 am because she barely sleeps these days (see the part about the two little boys).

He joined the Post in 2019 and previously covered the White House. Before that, he spent five years at Bloomberg, where he reported on politics and policy from Washington and Florida. A landmark biography by two prizewinning Washington Post reporters that reveals how systemic racism shaped George Floyd's life and legacy—from his family's roots in the tobacco fields of North Carolina, to ongoing inequality in housing, education, health care, criminal justice, and policing—telling the story of how one man's tragic experience brought about a global movement for change. “It is a testament to the power of His Name Is George Floyd that the book's most vital moments come not after Floyd's death, but in its intimate, unvarnished and scrupulous account of his life . . . Impressive.” —New York Times Book Review “Since we know George Floyd's death with tragic clarity, we must know Floyd's America—and life—with tragic clarity. Essential for our times.” —Ibram X. Kendi, author of How to Be an Antiracist   “A much-needed portrait of the life, times, and martyrdom of George Floyd, a chronicle of the racial awakening sparked by his brutal and untimely death, and an essential work of history I hope everyone will read.” —Henry Louis Gates, Jr., author ofThe Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song The events of that day are now tragically familiar: on May 25, 2020, George Floyd became the latest Black person to die at the hands of the police, murdered outside of a Minneapolis convenience store by white officer Derek Chauvin. The video recording of his death set off the largest protest movement in the history of the United States, awakening millions to the pervasiveness of racial injustice. But long before his face was painted onto countless murals and his name became synonymous with civil rights, Floyd was a father, partner, athlete, and friend who constantly strove for a better life.   His Name Is George Floyd tells the story of a beloved figure from Houston's housing projects as he faced the stifling systemic pressures that come with being a Black man in America. Placing his narrative within the context of the country's enduring legacy of institutional racism, this deeply reported account examines Floyd's family roots in slavery and sharecropping, the segregation of his schools, the overpolicing of his community amid a wave of mass incarceration, and the callous disregard toward his struggle with addiction—putting today's inequality into uniquely human terms. Drawing upon hundreds of interviews with Floyd's closest friends and family, his elementary school teachers and varsity coaches, civil rights icons, and those in the highest seats of political power, Washington Post reporters Robert Samuels and Toluse Olorunnipa offer a poignant and moving exploration of George Floyd's America, revealing how a man who simply wanted to breathe ended up touching the world.

Introduction to PaulRomans • May 22, 2022Teacher: Adam Barnett--Our desire is that you would read the designated section for yourself in Scripture first, and then read the three entries that correspond to that Scripture—theological, pastoral, and devotional. At the end of the three entries is space for you to write any reflections, questions, or thoughts you had on the text.  Acts 9:1-22 NIVMeanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord's disciples. He went to the high priestand asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem.As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him,“Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied.“Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone.Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus.For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!” “Yes, Lord,” he answered.The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying.In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.”“Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your holy people in Jerusalem.And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on your name.”But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel.I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.”Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul's eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized,and after taking some food, he regained his strength. Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus.At once he began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God.All those who heard him were astonished and asked, “Isn't he the man who raised havoc in Jerusalem among those who call on this name? And hasn't he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests?”Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Messiah.Raymond Brown“Paul was an itinerant artisan who would have had to struggle to get money for food. Horseback travel was difficult. And Paul would not even have been able or willing to spend money for a donkey to carry his baggage. So we have to picture Paul trudging along the roads, carrying his limited possessions in a sack, at the maximum covering twenty miles a day. Often, he had to sleep somewhere near the road, amidst the cold, rain, and snow. As a poor man he would have been easily victimized by bandits, especially in country areas that were less efficiently controlled by police. Sea journeys were not much safer.”2 Corinthians 6:4-10 NIVRather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.Romans 1:1-6 NIVPaul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name's sake. And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

(English) In this message Ps Catherine talks about how meekness is not weakness in these 4 points: (Matthew 5:5 ESV) Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5 NASB) Blessed are the gentle, for they will inherit the earth. Meekness is “Strength Under Control” Sons of Thunder (Luke 9:51-56 TPT) Jesus let nothing distract him from departing for Jerusalem because the time for him to be lifted up  drew near, and he was full of passion to complete his mission there. (52) So he sent messengers  ahead of him as envoys to a village of the Samaritans. (53) But as they approached the village, the people turned them away. They would not allow Jesus to enter, for he was on his way to worship in Jerusalem. (54) When the disciples Jacob and John realized what was happening, they returned to Jesus and said, “Lord, if you wanted to, you could command fire to fall down from heaven, just as Elijah did  and destroy all these wicked people.”(55) Jesus rebuked them sharply, saying, “Don't you realize what spews from your hearts when you say that? The Son of Man did not come to destroy life, but to bring life to the earth.” (56) So they went to another village instead. (Mark 10:35-38 NLT) Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came over and spoke to him. “Teacher,” they said, “we want you to do us a favor.” (36) “What is your request?” he asked. (37) They replied, “When you sit on your glorious throne, we want to sit in places of honor next to you, one on your right and the other on your left.” (38) But Jesus said to them, “You don't know what you are asking! Are you able to drink from the bitter cup of suffering I am about to drink? Are you able to be baptized with the baptism of suffering I must be baptized with?” (Mark 10:41-45 NLT) When the ten other disciples heard what James and John had asked, they were indignant. (42) So Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. (43) But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, (44) and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. (45) For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Acts 8:14-17 NIV) When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria. (15) When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, (16) because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. (17) Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. • Speak Words of Blessing • Big Heart for People • Use our Strength to Serve  • Placing our Hope and Trust in Jesus

A retrospective monograph of Alistair MacLennan's performance art practice, its influence on the Belfast art scene, and its relationships with wider art histories. Actional Poetics-Ash She He: The Performance Actuations of Alastair MacLennan, 1971-2020 (Intellect, 2022) (Intellect, 2022) is the most comprehensive and complete legacy monograph about Alastair MacLennan's extensive performance practice. Alastair MacLennan is emeritus professor of fine art, School of Art and Design, Ulster University in Belfast. He is one of Britain's major practitioners in live art, and travels extensively in Eastern and Western Europe, also America and Canada, presenting ‘Actuations' (his term for performance/installations). MacLennan is a founding member of Belfast's Art and Research Exchange, of Belfast's Bbeyond performance collective and is a member of the performance art entity Black Market International. He has represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale (1997) and is an honorary associate of the National Review of Live Art, Glasgow, Scotland. There is a wide variety of approach in the essays, ranging from descriptive to interpretive. Some set the work in historical context and others provide pertinent biography. This variety is appropriate – and perhaps even necessary – in looking at the work of a living artist whose work is particularly complex. The selection of essays presents a complex body of work in an understandable way, with each writer allowed to address the art in their own terms. Placing the work in historical context is important but presenting MacLennan as an influential teacher is also important. Includes a significant contribution from Adrian Heathfield (professor of performance and visual culture at Roehampton, UK) who has written an extended essay on MacLennan's oeuvre, focusing on its use of materials and its creation of sculptural environments. Discussing the artist's deployment of slow-time action and contemplative space, Heathfield sees MacLennan's work as activating sustained contact with the elemental and locates MacLennan's work as a significant intervention in performance art history globally and discusses the politics of its engagement with local history, violence, social conflict and memory. The primary readership will be academics, researchers and scholars working in performance art and contemporary art in general.

6 Reasons Telling Women Their Power Is in Their Sexuality Is Not Empowering

"1. It Objectifies Women The idea that women attain control by eliciting men's desires plays into the age-old notion that women's worth lies in their ability to produce erections. “One of the greatest powers a woman has is the power of her sex,” author and speaker Rick Johnson writes in Patheos. By making looks paramount to women's empowerment, this attitude reduces them to objects. And by telling women to gain power through their sexuality, rather than their personalities or talents, it teaches them to focus on their looks. Equating all situations where women are the objects of desire with empowerment has the effect of justifying objectification. “A young woman's sexual power is effective with both sexes… Advertisers know that and use partially clad images of young women to sell products to both men and women,” Johnson writes. This statement ignores all the ways women are disempowered by advertisements that use their bodies to sell products, depicting them in passive poses and even presenting them as inanimate objects. There is nothing empowering about dehumanization. Furthermore, telling women their value lies in their ability to be desirable devalues women who are not widely considered sexually desirable. “Women tend to lose their sexual power as they age,” Johnson admits. If women's ability to get what they want is rooted in their demand among men, what about women who aren't in high demand? It's true that people often favor women based on their adherence to ageist, racist, sizeist, and ableist ideals. But that should be challenged, not celebrated. Placing value on women based on men's attraction makes those who don't possess the traits society considers attractive feel worthless, and it makes women of all appearances feel like objects. We should be prizing inner qualities more important than the ability to provide or withhold sexual pleasure, like strength and wisdom. And people should honor women's wants and needs regardless of what they look like or whether sex will ever be offered in exchange." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

Ask any designer, and they'll tell you that their number one way of landing new design clients is through word-of-mouth referrals. If you do an excellent job on a client's project, there's a good chance they'll pass your name along should they hear of someone requiring services you offer. I've built my entire business on this model. And chances are, so have you. But does that mean you should only rely on word-of-mouth referrals? No, it doesn't. Are you familiar with the term diversify? In short, it means “using different options.” Such as “you should diversify your investments,” meaning you should have multiple investments. If one of them isn't doing well, your other assets can help make up for it. Diversification can also apply to your income stream. If all your work comes from one client, and that client suddenly has financial difficulty and stops sending work your way, you'll be in trouble. That's why it's best to have multiple clients. If one stops sending you projects, you can still make a living from the rest. But I want to talk about diversity concerning how you obtain new clients. As I said, word-of-mouth is the most popular method in our field. But word-of-mouth has limits. That's why you shouldn't rely solely on it for your clients. This is how word-of-mouth works. Imagine a tree. The tree trunk s one client. You design a project for this one client. They may refer someone else to you via word-of-mouth if they like what you did. That someone else is now a limb on that tree. Again, you do a good job, and that someone else, the limb, tells another person about you. That new person becomes a branch on your tree, and so on. Every limb and every branch can trace itself back to the trunk, the first client. Now you have a big tree of clients, all somehow connected back to that initial client. And that's great. But there's more than one tree in a forest. This means many people could use your services but have zero connection to anyone in your tree of clients. And if they have zero connection to your existing clients, they'll never hear about you through word-of-mouth. That's why you should diversify how or where you find clients. Because every client you land that isn't connected to your other clients starts a new tree for you. Now there are many resources available on how to find clients. Searching the phrase “How to find graphic design clients” will produce more than 247,000,000 results. Have fun reading through all of them. But today, I want to share six unconventional ways you can find design clients. And just a note, I've successfully landed new clients using 5 out of 6 of these methods. And it's not because one didn't work. I just never tried it myself, but I know others who have. Also, note that some of these methods may require a small investment. So let's get started. Placing business cards in books. Leaving your business card in a book is a great way to introduce yourself to someone who may not know you. Look at your local library or book store for books on starting a business and insert your business card. If there happens to be a chapter on branding or marketing, place your card there. Should someone read the book, they'll come across your card at the point in the book where they're learning about the type of services you offer. This method worked for me recently. A client contacted me saying, “I found your business card in a book I bought.” BTW, you could leave a business card as I did. Or, if you want to get more creative, you can have a special card made for just this purpose. Imagine someone reading a “How to start a business" book and coming across a card that reads, “Are you thinking of starting a business? I would love to help you with your website.” Join a board of directors or committee. As I mentioned above, some of these methods require an investment on your part. This one isn't financial. It's time. We all know that networking is one of the best ways to become known for what you offer. After all, if someone doesn't know about you, there's very little chance they'll hire you. But networking doesn't have to be just at conferences or special events. You could join a local board of directors or a committee for an organization. What's good about this is you're not just meeting people once. You regularly interact with people when you're on a board or committee. This gives them a chance to get to know you. These relationships make it very easy for someone to consider you when they need a designer. Don't do this with the mindset of landing clients. If you're going to invest your time, it should be with an organization you believe in, even if it doesn't produce any clients. Advertise your design business on T-shirts. I've talked before about how when I first started my business. I had a T-shirt made with the message “Hi, I'm a website designer. Is your site working for you?” on the back. I wore this shirt to local events and trade shows. It landed me several new clients. But wearing a T-shirt advertising your services isn't what I wanted to talk about today. Over the years, I've designed T-shirts for various organizations, events and festivals in our area. Not only do I design the image for the shirts, but I broker the screen printing as well. Whenever I give a client a quote for a T-shirt project, I offer them two prices. A regular price and a discounted price if they allow me to put my name and logo on the back of the shirt. If it's for an event and they want a list of sponsors on the back, I'll ask to have my name and logo on the sleeve instead. Most clients jump at this opportunity to save money. And since I'm brokering the deal, I make sure I'm still making a profit either way. I've had my name and logo on shirts for sporting events, festivals, concerts, charity events, etc. Each of them is an opportunity for someone to find out about my business. And over the years, it's brought in new clients. Sponsor your kid's activities. Another option to get your name out there is sponsoring your kid's activities. If you don't have kids, you can still reach out to local youth groups or leagues and inquire if you can help them. Growing up, my daughter played competitive soccer and volleyball and danced on a competitive dance team. I found a way to advertise my business with each organization. For soccer and volleyball, I approached the teams with a fundraiser idea. I created a T-shirt not for the athletes but for the parents, grandparents, friends and siblings who watch the game from the sidelines. I designed a graphic with the team name and “Sideline Support” on the front. On the back, I put my business info. My daughter's team sold the shirts to family and friends of every team in the league. And all proceeds went to my daughter's team. For the dance team, my daughter was on. I offered to design their yearly dance recital t-shirt in exchange for a full-page ad in the recital program. I've had several clients discover me through that ad. Advertise your design business on your vehicle. Another way to get your name out there is simply by putting your information on your vehicle. Vinyl letters, a wrap or even a car magnet, create a moving billboard advertising your services. This is the method I haven't tried myself. But I know a few designers who have their business information on their vehicles, and they've told me it brings in many leads. Include an ad for your design business in any proposal involving ads. You'll get to work on projects that involve ads from time to time. Maybe you're asked to design a magazine. Or a program for a local event. It might be a sponsor board or a t-shirt with sponsor logos. Maybe a website client wants you to incorporate space for ads on their new site. Whatever the project is, always ask for one ad spot to be reserved for you as part of the proposal. If it's a sponsor board, request to include your logo as a sponsor. Try to have your ad or logo on everything you can whenever possible. There's more than just word-of-mouth. Word-of-mouth is, and will always remain, the best way for you to land new design clients. But it shouldn't be your only way. Try as many of these unconventional ways to land design clients as you can. Who knows what will happen. After all, people aren't going to hire you if they don't know who you are. The more you diversify how you find clients, the more trees you'll have in your forest.
