To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/1085/29 If over-spending is your problem, it means you're not controlling your money.Your money is controlling you. Today on MoneyWise, Rob West has some ideas about how to change that. While it's certainly true that God created everything and owns everything, it's also true that He's put each of us in charge of just a tiny portion of His holdings, and He expects us to be faithful stewards of His resources.To do that, we have to control money and not let it control us.God's word contains over 2300 verses about money and possessions and when we follow those principles, we become financially free.When we don't, we become slaves to money.It controls us.Here are Rob's key steps to getting control of the money God has given you: 1.Avoid debt. Proverbs 22:7 says, The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender. And Proverbs 21:20 tells us, Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man's dwelling, but a foolish man devours it.If you have trouble managing your credit and debit cards, stop using them. It is possible to use cash for many of your budget categories.The advantage to using cash is you can't overspend like with a credit card if you separate your cash into envelopes or categories. When an envelope is empty, you can't spend any more in that category.If you don't sneak and dig into another category, you'll still have the money you need for other things. That part is just simple math. Rob also talks about the strong psychological component to using cash. When you have to hand over actual dollars, it's much more difficult to part with them. Studies show people spend 10 to 30-percent less just by using cash instead of plastic, so it's a real help in controlling impulse spending. 2.If you already have debt, pay more than the minimum payment each month. When you pay just the minimum on your credit card, for example, a lot of that money is going toward interest only, so it will take years to pay it off.Instead, pay as much as you can above the minimum each month to get that card paid off quickly.If you have more than one card to pay off, Rob recommends paying the one with the lowest balance off first to get it out of the way, then taking what you were paying each month on that card, adding that amount to what you have to pay on the next lowest card, and pay it off in the same manner. That's called the snowball method. You'll get a quick psychological boost from paying off a card. That gives you incentive to keep going. When that's paid off, you can go on to the next card with the lowest balance and so on. 3.Avoid the lure of credit cards offering big rewards unless you already have a spending plan in place and you're already using it.Those reward points will be dwarfed by the interest payments you'll have to make if you don't pay off the entire balance each month. Many people think they won't let that happen, but then an unexpected expense comes along and the easy way out is to use the credit card.This leads to the fourth step in Rob's plan to control your money. 4.Set up an emergency fund. Rob recommends it be able to cover 3 to 6 months of living expenses. Then, when an extensive medical emergency or a job layoff pops up, you use emergency fund money to pay for it and keep you afloat. Next, Rob answers listener questions including the following: We applied for a PPP small business loan in 2020, received the money, and then applied for and were granted loan forgiveness.Are there any surprises we should be aware of on our taxes or elsewhere? I'm getting married in January, and we don't want to combine our finances until after we're married.How would you recommend we plan for the time when we DO merge our money?(Rob answers the question, but also recommends the bookMoney and Marriage God's Wayby Howard Dayton.) I'm trying to help my mom purchase her first home and may need to co-sign in order for her to qualify for a loan.I don't really have extra money to help her, so what would you recommend I do?

Today, you're in for quite a treat!  I spoke with Tom Hooten, Principal Trumpet of the LA Philharmonic and one of the world's most prominent classical trumpeters. Be prepared to walk away from this conversation feeling highly motivated and inspired by the energy and wisdom he brought to this conversation! We covered many great topics, including: Tom's self-described “unconventional” journey to this point in his career as a professional musician (3:38) How important mindset is to practice and improvement (8:49) Digging into meeting yourself “where your talent ends” (13:00) Teaching as problem-solving and shifting perspectives (17:08) Tom's process in the practice room, specifically in preparation for a world-premiere piece (19:32) Asked himself: what is the end result? (21:06) Made a list of specific things that needed consistent attention (22:11) Planned out a routine, including the actual times to practice (and how, if you fail to commit to those times, you'll end up with a “frustration cocktail”) (22:45) Got honest with what he could and could not do to fill out that schedule (24:00) Used the app “Seconds Pro” to create a timed, custom “workout” practice routine (24:14) Continued to tend to his foundational base of skills, in conjunction with the specialty skills required from a specific piece (28:00) What it means to create for yourself, opposed to mimicking others' interpretations (30:33) Audition tips, including winning auditions through trust, honesty, and dedicated practice (32:35) Some rapid-fire answers, including what Tom's schedule looks like, the importance of asking good questions, and a (somewhat unexpected!) accountability tool to use during practice (37:11) LINKS: Instagram: @tomhooten Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TomHootenTrumpet Website: https://www.tomhooten.com Seconds Pro Interval Timer App, for Apple: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/seconds-pro-interval-timer/id363978811 Seconds Pro Interval Timer App, for Google: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.runloop.seconds&hl=en PRACTICING FOR PEAK PERFORMANCE: I'm excited to tell you that Practicing for Peak Performance is now available for download!

Sheppard Mullin's Nota Bene

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 24, 2021 50:08


This episode was originally published on June 3rd, 2020  as Episode 84. The coronavirus pandemic has proven to be the most significant business crisis in global history.  What will it take for multinational companies to aptly respond to the crisis while managing potential future harm from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) audits and investigations? Michael is joined by two guests, Jonathan Aronie and Joe Jay, from Sheppard Mullin's Organizational Integrity Group (OIG). Jonathan Aronie is a partner in the Washington, DC office of Sheppard Mullin, and the co-leader of the firm's Government Contracts and Internal Investigations Practice Group. In 2013, Jonathan was appointed by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana to serve as the Federal Monitor over the NOPD Consent Decree, the most comprehensive Consent Decree in the country. He is the author of From Bourbon Street To The Board Room: Eight Aids to Sustaining Reform.   Joe Jay is a partner in the Government Contracts, Investigations & International Trade Practice Group in Sheppard Mullin's Washington, D.C. office. Joseph's practice encompasses a broad array white collar defense, corporate investigations, and international trade matters. His matters include defense of civil and criminal enforcement actions and investigations, compliance counseling and regulatory advice.  Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play or Stitcher to receive every new episode as soon as they're published! What We Discuss in This Episode: What is the Organizational Integrity Group (OIG) and how does it help businesses? How has the coronavirus pandemic allowed the OIG to focus on what really matters when it comes to businesses responding in real-time to harm? What types of PPP audits and investigations will likely stem from the current pandemic? How will any investigations go beyond merely auditing funds that were disbursed? What else should businesses think about when carrying on with business activities under the PPP? What is the Defense Protection Act (DPA) and how might it affect enforcement of PPP spending? What types of questions are OIG clients asking of their counsel? One of the OIG's First Principles guides businesses facing a potential crisis to “slow down the scene.” What does that entail? What goals are OIG counsel trying to achieve in what they call the legal “pre-mortem” portion of assessing a company's needs? How important is it to “vet” any partners that your company plans on working with?

Urbanization and Urban Governance with Ed Glaeser

Today's guest is Ed Glaeser, a Professor of Economics at Harvard University, and he joins us to talk about urbanization and urban planning. Ed has written, or co-authored several books, including The Triumph of The City, and more recently, Survival of the City: Living and Thriving in an Age of Isolation, published this year with David Cutler. Our conversation begins on the subject of the rapid urbanization of parts of the developing world such as India and Sub-Saharan Africa. We explore what lessons can be learned in this regard from the urbanization of Latin America in the 1960s. Our exchange moves to touch on ways of urbanizing without industrialization or via services rather than manufacturing. Shifting onto the topic of urban governance, we hear Ed's thoughts on the 15-minute city concept, how to overcome political constraints to construction such as vetocracy, and how to push back against cars when they stand as status symbols to the newly rich. We also get into why the schools in big US cities are failing and how to deal with the rising carbon emissions that come as developing countries urbanize. We then talk about COVID-related challenges to productivity and the supply chain, before wrapping up on the subject of whether charter cities are a way of experimenting with pro-entrepreneurship institutions. Key Points From This Episode: •   The lessons to be learned from Latin America's urbanization regarding transport and more. •   Countries that have become urbanized without being industrialized. •   The connection between urbanization and moving out of poverty. •   Perspectives on manufacturing versus service-led paths toward transformation. •   Whether there is a distinction between urban migrants who arrive due to ‘pull' versus ‘push' factors. •   Ed's thoughts on whether secondary cities can be as productive as primary ones. •   The contrast between entrepreneurship and poor living conditions in Mumbai's Dharavi slum. •   Under which conditions private provision (PPP) works best and worst. •   What we can learn from large urban infrastructure projects built in the 1970s. •   Whether there are examples of cities that are good at combatting vetocracy. •   The leaders behind cities that have experienced massive urbanization. •   Why Ed thinks the 15-minute city is a dead-end concept but agrees with some aspects of it. •   How to push back against environmentally damaging status symbols for the newly rich as a planner. •   The factors that contribute to suburbanization and whether China is headed that way. •   How to deal with the rising carbon emissions that come as developing countries urbanize. •   Why large cities in the US are failing on the schooling front and Ed's thoughts on a solution. •   Ed's thoughts on a land-grant university model in developing countries. •   How to grapple with current COVID-related supply chain challenges. •   Productivity after social distancing in light of the connection between density and productivity. •   Why London and New York are still the only truly global cities. •   Whether charter cities are a way of experimenting with pro-entrepreneurship institutions.   Links Mentioned in Today's Episode: https://scholar.harvard.edu/glaeser/home (Ed Glaeser) https://www.nber.org/ (National Bureau of Economic Research) https://www.amazon.com/Triumph-City-Greatest-Invention-Healthier/dp/0143120549 (Triumph of The City) https://www.amazon.com/Survival-City-Living-Thriving-Isolation-ebook/dp/B08V896ZD6 (Survival of the City: Living and Thriving in an Age of Isolation) https://scholar.harvard.edu/cutler/home (David Cutler)...

How to manage a huge economic hit on your main asset class? How to buy and add value to properties today? Christopher Rising, co-founder of Rising Realty Partners, shares his expertise with us. You can read this entire interview here: https://bit.ly/3GMTaaF How did you deal with 1.5 yrs of lockdown (so far) when your main asset class is office in the Los Angeles area? What did we do from day one was, we did try to work with our tenants. When someone came to us or someone chose not to pay the rent, the first thing we would say was, give us your financials, let's be a partner here, and let us see. You kind of smoke some people out when you do that, because I can't tell you how many law firms felt like a lease was a one sided obligation, and they didn't have to pay if they didn't want to. But that's not true. We'd start with the, Hey, show us the books. Then we went to have you applied for a PPP loan, because those were specifically designed to pay salaries and to pay rent. And then if they didn't do that, we said, have you gone to business insurance, but we knew that they weren't fronting any of this. But if someone worked and tried to solve a problem, we worked with them. And in fact, I would say that every one of our retail tenants, our office building, I think to a tee, we are working out deals with them now, because most of them haven't paid rent in two years, so that we can keep them, but they also need to do things like extend their term or something. We're not trying to be punitive, and say, you owe us late rent. We're just trying to almost close our eyes and pretend the last two years didn't happen. We got through it. We paid our mortgages and all that. But in return, you have to give us a little more term on your leases. But it still hasn't been figured out. I think that on the multifamily side, there are a lot of problems that are hidden right now. Because you can't evict people, all you can do is served with a notice to pay. And I think when all of this gets lifted, you're going to see a lot of residential tenants whose credit gets really destroyed. I would love to hear about your last acquisition, how did you analyze it find value add, and why did you end up purchasing it? I'll talk about the last one, which was in Las Vegas, we've taken our industrial strategy and really focused on something called multi-tenant light industrial. I think when people talk about industrial today, they sometimes forget, there's different forms of industrial real estate, the one that is trading at unbelievably low cap rates are the big box, logistics based industrial buildings. You think of a big Amazon center or distribution center, or just anybody who's moving product, those are trading at very low cap rates are very hard to buy, because you have to buy them in scale. You're not really selling one offs, it's usually portfolios. But people are really buying the cash flow stream and the quality of that credit. So that is not an area we have participated in, even though my father when he was in development, that's what they did. We've taken a different approach and focused on this multi-tenant light industrial product that really isn't getting built much anymore, especially in major CBDs. It's not getting built, because it's hard to get entitled, if you're going to build something in industrial, you'd prefer to build the big box industrial, it costs less, you get more for your money.

Currently. Ashley, we just talked about this. You live near Buffalo, New York on a dairy farm of all things with your husband and three boys. How are you doing   Ashley (1m 2s): Good. Thank you so much for having   Jesse (1m 3s): Me right on. So I guess just on that, on that point, you are in Buffalo, so we're probably just a two hour drive away from each other. The dairy farm is that that's a family run thing or?   Ashley (1m 15s): Yeah, so my husband's family, he's third generation. And basically when I moved out of my parents' house, I moved to here and lived down the pharmacist.   Jesse (1m 25s): I love it. We were just chatting before the show. I'm kind of on the heels of, of BP con in new Orleans. Ashley was, you were speaking on a panel, you mentioned before. It was a panel of, I guess, women in real estate. Is that correct?   Ashley (1m 40s): It was all about women that have succeeded in real estate and their advice to inspire other women to get started.   Jesse (1m 49s): Awesome. Great. Well, like they can attest to the fact that we had a great time out there. Didn't cross paths at this time, but maybe next year at next BB con.   Ashley (2m 0s): Yeah, definitely. I there's so many people there so many awesome people to me, it's hard to even get from point a to B because you just run into people. Maybe you met online or people you wanted to meet or just, you know, somebody that comes up to you that heard your story. Yeah.   Jesse (2m 15s): I couldn't agree more Ashley for our listeners that don't know you have a really great presence online, Instagram kind of showcases some of the stuff you're doing, but for those that don't don't know your background, could you give us a little bit of a background of, you know, how you started out, how you got into this world of real estate that we, that we all love?   Ashley (2m 36s): Yeah, of course I, so when I graduated college, I got married and I started working at a CPA firm and I was going to get licensed as a CPA and just work as an accountant. Well, I lasted about six months and I really hated it. So I ended up quitting my job and I was just going to be a stay at home mom. I was going to get pregnant, have babies and live on the farm. Well, about two weeks into my unemployment, my friend's dad approached me and he had a 40 unit apartment complex that he wanted me to run for him.   And so I agreed I could do it from home. It would be part-time. And basically from there, I grew a property management company for himself, for him and all of his properties. It ended up being about 80 residential and about 20 commercial properties that I was managing for him. So to start my first deal, I actually approached his son and said, look what your dad is doing. We should do this. And we bought our first duplex in 2014. And that was how I got started.   Just kind of watching somebody else learning from him and working for him. I gained a lot of experience and knowledge.   Jesse (3m 49s): That's incredible. And that was only, I mean, 2014, right? Not too long ago. Yeah. So in terms of basically saying here's a 40 unit apartment, what were the details, was that, was that something local that you could do or was it, you know, it wasn't across state lines.   Ashley (4m 6s): Yeah, it was right in the town, you know, 10 minutes from my house as in the town that I had gone to high school. And so I knew the town very well. It was very convenient to get to. And I started off with a small little office there that I could go to if need be. And actually just my first day was the first of the month. It was April 1st, 2013. And so all the rent checks are coming in and I was like so nervous that I wasn't going to track them properly. That all 40 checks that came in, I actually photocopied all of them before I actually deposited them.   And I spent pretty much, it took me, I think like full two full years to actually build out my systems and processes for property management. But it was definitely a learning experience. I ripped my hair out a lot. I cried and life is much better now not doing property management. I ended up outsourcing property management to a third party in February, 2020. So I gave up the property management on my properties and also with the same investor. So now I just do asset management for both of us.   Jesse (5m 11s): Was there a reason that a, that person had had come to you for managing that, that 40 unit? Or was it just happenstance?   Ashley (5m 21s): I actually grew up next door to him, his daughter and I were best friends growing up. And I actually went on vacation with their family when I had just quit my job just because I had nothing else to do. And I that's where they were talking about who needs help. And I think there was kind of this mindset. They had that because I was an accountant. I was capable of managing and running a building, which really wasn't true. I could do the bookkeeping for it. But as far as I had to spend a lot of time learning the rules, the regulations and stuff like that and how to make it actually run efficiently.   So, but that was really just it. The, it was more his wife and his kids like pushing him. You need somebody to help you. And so I ended up doing a lot of admin stuff for him too in personal assistant stuff. And then he brought me in an all these projects. I helped him build a 40,000 square foot dealership. I helped him purchase a dealership. I helped him start an insurance agency. So I'm so grateful for him, for him because he brought me in on so many opportunities that a lot of people don't have that I guess, advantage.   Jesse (6m 32s): Yeah, for sure. It's like the school of hard knocks for a few real estate. So property management is, is one of those professions where it's, it's a lot of hard work. It's a lot it's can be a very stressful job. And usually when you're doing a great job of it, nobody calls you and says, Hey, you're doing a great job. So usually you get the call when there's an issue. How did you, well, I guess first, when did you realize that that was something maybe you didn't want to do at least you personally doing for, for long-term and, and w was there a light bulb moment that, you know, you came across that you, you thought, Hey, let's, let's go buy real estate.   Like you're talking about.   Ashley (7m 8s): Yeah, actually the light bulb moment was when I helped him purchase the dealership. So I saw how he was purchasing a business and what he was doing was taking his properties that he owned and refinancing them, pulling the equity out. And he was able to make a cash offer on this business and purchase it. And I still remember sitting in the attorney's office at the closing table and he had had me set up the LLC. He had had me set up the bank account and I was the one signing that huge check that was given at the closing table.   And just the fact that he put that pen in my hand and had me write that check. I had never even seen a check that big of a month before I think really had an impact on me. And I saw like the power of the real estate that he had and how he used the equity to further advance his investments. So that was the biggest aha moment for me.   Jesse (8m 4s): Yeah. And you kind of got the, I mean, learning by osmosis by you actually doing it, but it's kind of like, I, at least I see it as there's that psychological barrier for a lot of people, as you know, with, with our industry, but you basically being the proxy, they're signing the check for him that I've, I probably broke down some psychological barriers about who can or can't buy real estate at that scale.   Ashley (8m 26s): Yeah, definitely. And even he had me do all of his financing. So anytime he went and got loans, I was in charge of that. I did all that. I worked with banks and that also helped me build a network of loan officers too, because I was super diligent about being timely in responding to loan officers, getting them what they wanted and working with them. And they liked that working relationship. And so when I started investing myself, I had a lot of loan officers that were very eager to work with me because they knew that I would provide to them what they needed to make the loan work.   Jesse (9m 2s): Yeah. Attention to detail and, and staying on top of them that didn't know traits that would explain or describe a CPA there. Yeah. So in terms of you, you pivoting to, or moving on to saying here's an opportunity that you think that you and this investor that you worked with that would purchase it, how did that property come along? What was that deal like?   Ashley (9m 24s): So I started talking to my, the investor son, just putting a little bug in his ear. Like, I think we should do this. And actually the first property that I found, I sent it to him. I said, I think this is the one we should buy. And we went and looked at it and we put an offer. It was accepted. And so he brought the money, he had savings that was going to be the cash offer on the property and how we structured. It was, we became 50 50. So I would do the property management, manage the remodel and do all the leasing.   And then he was the money guy. But also what we did was to make it less risky for him. He also received a monthly principal and interest payment every month. So he was making five and a half percent on his money. It was amortized over 15 years. And then he was getting 50% of the equity in the property and 50% of the cashflow and the property too. So it was a very, I guess, a good offer for him because it was less risky because he was tied into it so much in getting all this benefit from it.   And for me, it was just a way for me to get started, look like right now, I would never do that deal with anyone, but looking back like that got me started. And I I'm super grateful   Jesse (10m 43s): For that. And was that a, was that a local deal?   Ashley (10m 47s): Yeah, so it was in the same town where I was managing the, the apartment complexes and we stuck in that town for, I think our first three deals. And then for our fourth one, we ended up venturing into the city more and then starting to spread out.   Jesse (11m 2s): So in terms of you, you started in this, this duplex, you said for this first deal, and now, you know, just kind of touching on that. That's not a deal you would do now, but how has that growth to the second deal? Was it, was it zero to one or was it one to 10? Like how did, what was the type of deal that you did after that? Duplex,   Ashley (11m 21s): After the duplex was another duplex and it was actually on the same street, just a couple houses down and it went up for sale and my partner ended up putting a line of credit on his house and that's how we, we use that money to purchase the second one. And then we ended up doing a portfolio loan, putting a mortgage on both of them pulling the cash out of them. And that's how we purchased our third home right around the corner too. So we bought three just within a couple blocks of each other.   Jesse (11m 49s): Very cool. So in terms of over the, I guess now, well it's seven years, a little bit, almost eight over that process. You've, you've obviously ventured out to other areas in commercial real estate. Well, what was that process like? It was, there was this, it sounds like at the beginning, at least it was a gradual thing, but was there another, whether you call it a hot moment or was there a big leap in saying, okay, I'm going to, I'm going to try my hand at this, you know, this asset class or moving out into larger deals.   Ashley (12m 18s): Yeah. At first I was very focused on duplexes, small multifamily. The largest I bought in the beginning was a six unit. And then the smallest was a duplex. And I, I was really focused on that and I really became very confident and comfortable purchasing in my market on those properties. So a lot of people ask if I still consider myself a rookie, if I'm purchasing a small multifamily my market. No, I don't. I think I'm very experienced in that. Any other kind of investing? Yes, definitely in that.   So I, I stuck with that and then I ended up just having this opportunity to buy this mixed use commercial building and the investor that I worked for. He owned a liquor store and I saw the power of his liquor store and just the uniqueness of it. And it could be a cash cow and just kind of diversify your portfolio. And so I ended up buying my first commercial building, where I put the, the liquor store in that building. And that was my first kind of different strategy than I went after since then.   So that building finished in 2020, we opened up the liquor store in November, 2020, since then I have been like all over the place, especially hosting a podcast is so bad for my shiny object syndrome because I hear all these things that are like, I just want to do that. They're like sounds awesome. All these different things. So I spent a lot of time going after self storage, mobile home parks and campgrounds. And I recently went to four conferences back to back and I finally have realized that I'm going to focus on campgrounds.   I do have a mobile home park under contract, which I'm going to continue with that. It's a sweet deal. I did have a self storage under contract, but it fell through because the seller wouldn't do a phase two environmental study. Yeah. So the phase one recommended it and the owner said no. So I falling out of contract on that one. And then I'm working on getting a campground under contract now. But I think my big aha moment as to why I was focusing on campgrounds is I had a couple of people talk to me during the conference and really like point out to me what I'm struggling with.   And point out facts, such as look at all the successful investors I'm friends with. He said, look at your network. Are all of them going after like three big asset classes right now? And the answer was no, they're all focused on one. Maybe they started out focused on something like I started out focused multifamily, but then now I'm pivoting. I have that down. I have that strategy, you know, set it's running smoothly and now I can pivot on onto something else, but you don't see these experienced successful investors going after three or four large strategies at once and seeing what will work.   And then the second aha moment for me was I was telling somebody about this campground that I was offering on. And he was like, that's, that's it. And I was like, what are you talking about? I know I want to offer. And he's like, no, that's what you're excited about. He was like, you just spewed off so many different random facts and stats and all this stuff. When you've talked about self storage, your mobile home park, it's just like, oh yeah, I got a mobile home park under contract. Like you don't have that excitement. So that was a big aha moment for me too, was that I'm actually excited about investing in campus.   Jesse (15m 39s): So leading up to campgrounds, which I want to talk about because we, we don't, I don't think we've ever really gone into detail at all on the show, in terms of that process, that takes you from the first few investments to where you're doing these, you know, more commercial side of the business deals. How, how did that develop from the team point of view in terms of networking with other people or having other people influence the decisions you made for those future properties?   Ashley (16m 6s): Yeah. So up until this mobile home park that I have on our contract, I had never paid more than $152,000 on a property. And that was my sixth unit. Everything else had been below that. So my mobile home park is $750,000. That is a huge like jump for me. And that was like a huge mindset shift for me to get over that hurdle because I'd never even spent close to that amount of money or looked for that amount of money.   I've always done well with creative financing and finding money, but to find that much money was like, like nerve wracking. But I spent the last year and probably if you would have talked to me two months ago, I wouldn't even have realized this yet, but I spent the last year doing so much networking. There's a group of people. It next month will be our sixth time meeting up for various events or different things. And I think just talking with them, seeing what they're doing has really kind of helped me eliminate a lot of my limited mindset and knowing that I can achieve these things, I am capable of doing this.   And if I work hard enough, I'm going to find a way I'm not going to give up. And so that definitely helped just seeing what these other people are doing. I even had a James Dainer and he's an investor from Seattle and he runs a very successful company. He endangered, he actually let me come and job shadow him for three days. And I just got to like, see the inner workings of his mind. I got to sit in in all his meetings and that was so awesome. And it's such a cool opportunity. So if anyone is trying to, like, you feel stuck, reach out to people in your network and just go and watch what they're doing and see it.   And it's, it's definitely motivating. I get so pumped up after I surround myself with other investors.   Jesse (17m 59s): Yeah, for sure. And I mean it to the conferences or, you know, speaking with other like-minded individuals, even at, at BB con when we were in new Orleans, it is I think a relative thing where people, I hope that when listeners hear, you know, $20 million, $40 million deal it's, there is that aspect of like, it is relative. There was a, there was a point where, you know, somebody jumping from a million to $5 million or 100,000 to 500,000 or less is, you know, for that person, it's five times what they've done before 10 times, what they've done before.   But I feel like once you do that enough times, you get that aspect of, oh, wait a minute. It really is that the concepts are the same. The deals are bigger, right?   Ashley (18m 40s): 'cause, you're getting like the same ratio of compare, like your, your rental income to the purchase price. Like if that ratio is still the same, who cares if it's a hundred thousand dollars property or, you know, a $1 million property, I guess. Yeah.   Jesse (18m 55s): I find the way I conceptualize the moving from, you know, your first property or second property, not really, I guess more so when you move from certain size of properties, to me, there's a category of one you can continue to bootstrap and then another, you have to raise external capital. Right. And, and what that inflection point is, is going to be different on the individual, right. You know, if you're one or two individuals, there's a certain level where you cannot afford to purchase that property, unless you create a structure where you're raising capital.   And I'm curious for yourself that 700,000, you mentioned creative financing. Did you underwrite it from a pure debt point of view and put in your own capital, or was that something where you had to create a vehicle where you were raising capital?   Ashley (19m 41s): So I spent all my money on real estate. So I have no money. I actually did two offers to the seller. I did one where I'd go and just get a commercial loan to purchase the property. And then I did one at seller financing and I did the seller financing at his asking price. And I said, you know, I'm willing to negotiate on terms. And he told me, I knew $2,500 a month. So I took, and I amortized the loan over 25 years at three and a half percent.   And that came out to $2,500 a month. And so I got a nice interest rate, a long-term loan, and then he needed, he's actually, he lives on the property. So he's actually moving off the property and he's building a house. So he needed some money for that to build the house. So I am putting some money down on the property, but I actually sold a property. And that's, what's going to fund that down payment.   Jesse (20m 41s): There you go. So that's creative. It's funny, you mentioned that one deal that didn't go through because you had the phase two environmental where, you know, there are all these strategies that you can use where we have a property right now that we have contamination on it. And it's really a matter of, of remediation. And part of their creative strategy, most likely will be a purchaser that comes along where we have to do, you know, a short seller financing or VTB on it to get it, you know, get the environmental assessment. But again, like, it's really just a matter of thinking outside of the box. And I'm sure you, as an accountant, you're like, okay, 2,500, we'll figure out what numbers those need to be to make that payment happen.   Ashley (21m 17s): Yeah. As soon as he said that, I got like excited inside and I was like my smile and be like, okay, well, how about if we did it this?   Jesse (21m 27s): So if we were to pivot to the campgrounds, this is something that, I mean, I don't know a lot about, I know we had Brandon on talking more about, you know, mobile, mobile home parks seem to continue to be the trend. Obviously multifamily is on fire, but yeah, for, for a complete newbie campgrounds, how did you come across them? And, and why do you get so excited when you, when you, when you're talking about?   Ashley (21m 54s): So I actually came across this campground that was close to me for sale. It was actually on LoopNet. And I found that the day was listen, I got to be the first person to go and see it. And the older gentleman that owned it, he took me through the whole property, along with my broker. And just like, I could see so much value add and all these different revenue streams just popping out at me. And so that's what really got my interest. And like, my family had cam when we were younger, my parents still have an RV.   We have like family land that we turned into, like a private campground, I guess. But so I have some experience in that and I love the outdoors and camping, all these different things, but just walking through that property and seeing the potential, like just even Wade whacking, the property was going to add so much value. The basketball net had like rocks or something, like holding it down and I wasn't even faced the right way. And just like all these things just super easy improvements could increase the value of it.   The second thing that really enticed me about that property was that there, I think there was 164 sites and about 120 of those were seasonal. So people came in in the spring and this was in Buffalo. So campgrounds are closed in the winter, but they came in, in the spring, left their camper there, they paid a seasonal rate. And then they came and picked up in the fall. And that really limits the daily check-in checkout, which I kind of liked that model a lot more because I'd like to stay away from as much operation as possible. So I offered on that property.   Hannah was like my biggest offer after it was 1.4 million and they were asking 1.5 and they had me go through, I was getting bank financing on that. And they had me go through a bunch of hurdles, like sending them so much stock to make sure I was really a qualified buyer. And then they ended up getting an offer from a capital group out of Los Angeles that beat me out. They did offer 1.5 million and they ended up getting it, but it made like the Buffalo news and stuff that this campground was, they stopped taking stop doing showings because there was two competitive offers from a capital group in Los Angeles and local investor, which is me, but that was like, so he got the bug there.   And then I realized like after I lost that on it, like, wow, I was actually, I really enjoyed that. So I started looking a little bit more and reading about different revenue streams. I got a couple of people on the podcast, the real estate Wiki podcast too, who are investing in campgrounds and one that wanted to start investing, but had done a ton of research, had them on the podcast so I can learn some more. And so then from there I found another one and I'm currently trying to get one under contract now.   And I just did a, an episode on the bigger pockets, real estate podcast with David Green. And I mentioned on there that I'm looking for campgrounds and that was released yesterday and already today. I have so many people sending me deals. So anybody else   Jesse (25m 4s): I'm sure. Yeah. It's a, it's a great, you know, selfish or symbiotic. I don't know you want to call it, but where we can, we can have people, we can have guests on we're. I mean, the value, hopefully we're giving is we're, we're getting it in return from having the guest on. And obviously listeners just hearing a boat, like I would never have thought a campgrounds. Now I'm going to look into what's the, what's the Canadian market, like in campgrounds. Just curious. I'm curious though, from the, from the perspective of you come across this, this, this camp brown, you start seeing all the different revenue, potential revenue, streams, the underwriting for a campground obviously, or maybe not obviously, but from my perception, it seems like you're buying a bit more of an operational business.   It's not as much pure real estate, but when you're underwriting it, are you looking at it as a, you know, as somewhat similar to a cap rate, like you're looking at the yields annually, are you looking at which companies that you would need to employ to, to manage the thing? W what did that look like for you being, especially being an accountant where it seems like those types of things would be at the top of the list for you?   Ashley (26m 11s): Yeah. So actually what I did at first was I AIG Osborn had, he has an available a self storage deal analysis calculator. I actually took that. And I use that for that first property that I put an offer in. And I tailored that to like, okay, so he has, you know, the size of the storage units. How many of those units do they have? And then what's the, you know, the monthly rate for that. And I just like, changed it. Okay. There is, you know, 50 full RV hookup sites.   There's maybe 50 with only electric or something. And I just tailored it to kind of fit a campground. So I've been actually working on that because there is not really a template or a calculator to analyze a campground because they're so different. Each one is so unique with what they have to offer and what are those different revenue streams. That's also what entices me, because there's so much different ways you can generate revenue off of a campground.   So for the deal analysis, it's really been, so I'm only offering on my second one, I've analyzed maybe four or five in total now. And I just, I have to completely almost redo the spreadsheet every single time, because they're going to have different expenses. They're going to have a different income streams. So I really just start by making a list of what I think the revenue is. It can generate. And then I'm pulling comps. I'm looking at websites of other RV parks in the area.   And I'm like, okay, what is their daily rate? What's their seasonal rate. A lot of times it even says what they charge for different things. So like one campground had a zip line and ATVs or whatever, and you'd pay like $25 for a day pass, use the activities. Okay, well, I could do that online, and this is what I could charge. So pulling comps on the campgrounds, because that's going to be your competition. People are going to look at what's around, especially the seasonal, because seasonal campers usually don't live that far from where they're parking their camper, usually within an hour, because they're going there on weekends, you know, the days off or even just for a night sometimes, and then commuting bathroom work, blackout work.   The one that I had offered on first at the Mo the owner said, the majority of people there lived within 30 minutes of where they were keeping their campsite. So if they're looking in that area, that's definitely going to be, your competition is looking right there and see what amenities they have, and then kind of figure out the price. It's almost like a, how an appraiser does an appraisal, those do the bedroom, count the bathrooms and then compares them and like, okay, this is the average, this is what I can put that value to that property.   Jesse (29m 4s): It's almost like how many things can we unitize and figure out what those, what those costs are or income is in terms of the, as a complete outsider in this, in this sector. Is there a case for campgrounds? Like, are there situations where the campground you can purchase the business itself, but not the real estate? Or are those always kind of co-mingled   Ashley (29m 28s): No, you definitely can where you do like a land contract, but that would be something that I'm not interested in at all. I like the idea of owning the property. And I joked when I went this recent one I'm offering, I joke that in 10 years, I'm going to pay it off. I'm going to kick everybody out and I'm just going to build my dream house live there.   Jesse (29m 50s): So actually we were on one of the panels that we had in, at the conference we were talking about, well, it was, it was a question for a couple of us on the panel and it was talking about the regulatory environment. And I thought, it'd be interesting to ask you because New York state, I think is probably of all the states, it's probably has a little bit more of regulatory kind of work to get through from a landlord tenant perspective. How, how have you looked at real estate or how has that impacted how you look at real estate, especially in your, in your state?   Ashley (30m 23s): Yeah, so it's definitely not a landlord friendly state, New York by all means. So everything really changed for the worse in June of 2019. And even now just with COVID the, the regulations they put on, on evictions and everything like that has been awful to deal with and what tenants can get away with. And it definitely has deterred me from wanting to keep building a portfolio here. I think that I do have a nice sized portfolio.   And if I, which I do think I will continue doing a bunch of burgers is I'll, I'll go out of state and kind of diversify in different markets. Maybe do a couple here a year still, just because it's so easy for me. Cause I know the market and I know the properties and I get a lot of deals sent to me. But yeah, we, we were lucky. We didn't have too many people that didn't pay during COVID, but there's one person that hasn't paid since COVID and we can't evict them.   We can't do anything. So I was very thankful that I gave up property management before COVID hit, because I wouldn't be bald ripping my hair out even more. So that was nice. But yeah, I, I think that if you are investing on state, don't come to me here.   Jesse (31m 46s): Yeah. Yeah. I think there's a, there's definitely a different, I mean, we're, we're very, I think our whole country safer for Alberta is, is a challenging regulatory environment. I think rent stabilization and rent control. We had a professor actually from New York city from NYU that was talking about the history of rent control and rent stabilization in New York state and then across the country. But I think for us, I'm not sure if it's the same for you, but basically we have a certain amount that we can raise every year. And they're really the only time you can raise above that is when a new tenant comes in.   I'm not sure if it's the same kind of,   Ashley (32m 20s): Yeah, we don't have that like outside of Buffalo, cause that's more like New York city, but for us, the biggest thing is like in June when all of the, the laws kind of changed and they just changed so drastically. So it used to be a three-day notice before you could file a petition for eviction, but then it changed to a 10 day notice and then it just like made the whole eviction process a lot longer, the different rules and regulations they put in and just a lot easier for tenants to get away without paying rent just a lot more loopholes and things like that.   Jesse (32m 56s): Yeah, absolutely. I think one very like a stark difference between let's just use Buffalo, for example, compared to say our market in Toronto or I mean you could go LA you could go, Boston, Buffalo has been a very, I think yields centric type of market where you, the cap rates that you can achieve around your area, probably a lot higher than the cap rates we can achieve in our area. But I think that has been at the expense of potential equity growth. So how do you look at, at that when you are doing your underwriting and just generally your philosophy of, of that trade-off between, you know, potential income as opposed to value?   Ashley (33m 36s): Yeah, so like one thing is the 50% rule in the 1% rule. So the 1% rule says that the per your, the rent that you're charging each month is 1% of the purchase price. I can hit that all day long. What I can't hit is the 50% rule where 50% of your expenses are 50% of the monthly income because the property taxes are so high too. So that's like a, not even the, the laws at all, just property taxes are so high here too. So that's been kind of another reason for me to want to go out of state for my rental portfolio, because if I buy this $20,000 property, I can pay that off very quickly or just pay for that in cash.   But I'm still paying those properties taxes every single year. And those, I just sold a property that the property, it was 20,000. I had bought it for and the property taxes were about three grand a year on it. And, but I could go upstate and I could pay maybe, you know, 50, 60,000 for that same house, but only pay a thousand dollars in property taxes. And once that property is paid off, it's only a thousand that I'm paying every year instead of 3000. So that I would say is even more of a factor to me than the, the landlord tenant laws, even.   Jesse (34m 54s): Yeah. It's funny that we would be the inverse of that. The 1% is almost impossible if not impossible, but the 50%, which is, you know, for listers, like you have a, your, whatever your expense ratio is, that's really, really what it is, you know, as a percentage. So us, I think 30 to 40% is pretty, pretty normal. It, unless it's brand new and then you can get a little bit lower, but yeah, I didn't, you know, and I didn't even think of that from a property tax perspective. That's really, I always, I, when you mentioned that, I thought it would have just been just expenses in general, not necessarily property tax.   Ashley (35m 26s): Yeah. It's, it's definitely the property tax, but we actually in Erie county, which is the county that's in Buffalo and, or surrounds it, they actually have an Excel sheet that they, every year that they just put on the county website that tells you each town and what the tax rate is for those towns. And then it compares it for you. It says, okay, if you buy a hundred thousand dollar house, this is what your taxes would be on that property. And you can go through and see, and it shows, breaks it down from like town and county.   And then if there's a village to village tax and then school tax. So what you can do is you can go through there and say, okay, these are the desirable school districts. Well, what towns border that, where you're paying that low town and county tax, but you're getting into that school district because of that little bit of overlapping. So if you guys, and anybody wants to go and look search your county, I'm sure they probably do this too. If your county does and look at that and you can see what towns have the lowest tax rate tax rates.   So the last house that I, I just did a flip and that house had super, super low property taxes. It was in a small little town and the reason it had low property taxes was because there was like a garbage dump in the area landfill. And they pay the majority of the property taxes. Well, this property was like right on the edge of the border where you're not getting any smell from the landfill. And so it was kind of like an opportunity because you get that, you know, I, that property, I also purchased for 20,000, but instead of 3000 and proper Texas, it was only $850 a year in property taxes.   Just show the difference. Yeah.   Jesse (37m 12s): Yeah. I think that's, I mean, it's pretty amazing. Like you can have properties within, you know, 45 minutes an hour from each other and just have such a drastic price difference when it comes to property tax Ashley, in terms of the way that you're looking at the market right now, and fingers crossed, hopefully we're coming out of this thing, you know, in, in the right direction, when it comes to the lockdowns and restrictions, what is, where do you see opportunities over the next few years? You know, what's, what's kind of got your interest aside, you know, aside from, from the, what we've discussed here, but what are you excited about?   Ashley (37m 47s): Well, I guess, you know, I'm trying to stay away from that shiny object centers. Talking about teenagers is bad for me, but I think there'll be a opportunity for businesses. So going after businesses that maybe are sick of the COVID regulations, or maybe they did fall behind and during COVID and they just haven't been able to catch up. So I think there'll be opportunity there. So some of the businesses I'd be interested in are not really going to be ones that were impacted by COVID, but were actually empowered by COVID.   So they actually did better. So that would be like liquor stores, which I got one of those. And unfortunately we didn't get our like liquor license until basically the shutdown was kind of over, but looking at the kind of businesses that can survive COVID I think really piques my interest that if there was another shutdown or something like that happening again, that these businesses were thriving and they still do successful anyways, even when there isn't a shutdown.   So that was like a liquor store was a big one for me. And then I also like the idea of a laundry mat or a carwash, just the, the, the ease of the cash cow from those. And then I do have some experience managing a laundromat for that, that other owner. So yeah, those are any other business opportunities   Jesse (39m 18s): Working with that. Gentlemen is the gift that keeps on giving we've. We've looked at laundromats as well. It's just one of those compelling things that even without buying the real estate there, there still is a compelling case. If you can obviously do both. That's great. But I like your point in terms of businesses that have been resilient. I mean, we've seen in our own market, you know, whether it's technology, medical, technology companies, ghost kitchens, just companies that you didn't, you couldn't foresee how much, how explosive their growth would be prior to the pandemic, obviously for, you know, nobody has a crystal ball, but that that's, we do see those companies, a big driver of, of real estate at least locally here.   And I'm sure it's, it's the case where you are.   Ashley (39m 60s): Yeah. And even with auto dealerships. So I've been in because of the same investor I've been in the auto dealership industry and they are making more money now because of the shortage of cars. So every car that they're selling, it's getting selled at invoice or above because there's no cars available because all the chips and all the parts are stuck on a ship waiting to come into the us. But they they've said that they sold they're making as much as they did, but they're selling half of what they sold before.   COVID. So they're doing less work, making the same amount of money. So it's been almost beneficial to them to, I mean, there's definitely was some hardships, especially during the shutdown and things like that, but there's the PPP programs that I think helped a lot of, of businesses. So it's very interesting to see what businesses actually have benefited from COVID and have done better.   Jesse (40m 57s): Yeah. I couldn't agree more. Well, actually, I want to be respectful of your time here. There's four questions that we ask every guest that comes on the show. So before we kind of get on how people can reach out to you, if you're game for those all, I'll start them off. What's something that, you know, now it could be in your real estate or career in general that you wish you knew when you were starting out.   Ashley (41m 19s): So, one thing that I did not know was that you could go and get a loan for an investment property. I thought you had to make a cash, but you had to buy it in cash because that's how that other investor had purchased all of his properties. So I wish that I would have known that there was other options to me then just taking on a partner and I could have explored that. And not that I, you know, made a bad decision or anything like that, but I wish I wouldn't have had that limited mindset of that. You could only buy a property in cash, and I didn't even realize creative financing and all the different ways to purchase property until I actually found bigger pockets in 2017.   So that was three years later. And then I tripled my portfolio in a year and a half after just digging into the forums and learning all these different ways, you know, seller financing and private money, all these different things.   Jesse (42m 13s): Yeah. Just, just all the different resources. The next question is, you know what, since you were on a panel for women in real estate, maybe we'll, I'll kind of tweak the question a little bit. Typically we'll ask, you know, your view, what would you give as a recommendation to younger people coming into our industry, your view on mentorship, but why don't we say from a, especially from a female point of view, younger women coming into our industry, you know, what would be your advice to them? And, and just generally, and mentorship,   Ashley (42m 41s): I think that there are some women out there who think that they are at a disadvantage being a woman in real estate, because there's so many men doing it. Don't look at it like that. It is an opportunity and it is an advantage. You are going to stand out because you are a woman. If you go and look at a property with a broker, do you think he's going to remember the 20 other men that have looked at it and know he's going to remember that one woman that came, that you know, is investing in properties.   I think there's a lot of doubts and that, you know, you're going to get scammed by contractors because you're a woman, you know, don't know what you're doing. And that's also an advantage. You know, if a contractor is going to try and scam you, because you're a woman who's going to do it right off the bat. So if he's talking down to you or things like that, then you know, not to hire him or if it's a guy and the contractor is like, okay, he probably knows what he's doing. I'm going to scan them at them or something.   But I, I think use it to your advantage. And it's an opportunity. And if you feel like, because you are a woman that you are not being taken seriously, then you're talking to the wrong people. You're talking to the wrong person because I have more friends in real estate that are men than women and not a single one of them has ever talked down to me or made me feel like I don't belong. That it's a boys club at all. If anything, I feel like I've been more welcomed because I am a woman.   There's a million other men doing what I'm doing, but there's not as many women. So it's given me an opportunity, a like up and I think take advantage of that   Jesse (44m 25s): Great advice. Okay. Is there a resource, a podcast or book that you'd like, let listeners know about that you're listening to reading   Ashley (44m 36s): The real estate rookie puck.   Jesse (44m 41s): Yeah. As well.   Ashley (44m 44s): Yeah. If there is actually a book that I love and I think that anybody who's in business or the real estate or any other business should read this because no matter what, you're going to be dealing with people, and it's a hug your haters by Jay Baer. And it's a customer service based book. And basically it talks about like, if you received negative feedback or criticism, how to deal with that, and also how to kill people with kindness. So if you are a wholesaler and you're getting, you know, sellers that are, you know, or you know, how to work with them.   And so I, it's a, it's a great read. I, it's probably the, one of the, probably the only book that I've scribbled in that much before and like taken notes and highlighted things. And so   Jesse (45m 32s): That's great that I think that's the first on the show. I've never heard of it. We'll put a link up to that as well. Awesome. All right. My favorite question, first car, make and model.   Ashley (45m 42s): It was a green Bonneville. I don't even want the makeup upon GMC or Chevy or something, but That's basically about think of a vote.   Jesse (45m 57s): Yeah, just, just in a, in a what's it called in Buffalo with a PO thing. It's Pontiac. Pontiac Bonneville. Yeah. Awesome. Awesome. Well, Ashley, for, for people that like to kind of find out what you're doing online, like I said, you have great, great presence on, on Instagram and other platforms were where's the best bless area for people to reach out.   Ashley (46m 19s): It will be on Instagram app wealth from rentals. And then we also have a real estate rookie, a YouTube channel, and then a real estate rookie, a Facebook page. You guys just searched those.   Jesse (46m 32s): My guest today has been Ashley Kurt, Ashley, thank you for being part of working capital.   Ashley (46m 36s): Thank you so much for having me.   Jesse (46m 45s): Thank you so much for listening to working capital the real estate podcast.

Get Control of Your Money

To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/1085/29 If over-spending is your problem, it means you're not controlling your money.Your money is controlling you. Today on MoneyWise, Rob West has some ideas about how to change that. While it's certainly true that God created everything and owns everything, it's also true that He's put each of us in charge of just a tiny portion of His holdings, and He expects us to be faithful stewards of His resources.To do that, we have to control money and not let it control us.God's word contains over 2300 verses about money and possessions and when we follow those principles, we become financially free.When we don't, we become slaves to money.It controls us.Here are Rob's key steps to getting control of the money God has given you: 1.Avoid debt. Proverbs 22:7 says, The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender. And Proverbs 21:20 tells us, Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man's dwelling, but a foolish man devours it.If you have trouble managing your credit and debit cards, stop using them. It is possible to use cash for many of your budget categories.The advantage to using cash is you can't overspend like with a credit card if you separate your cash into envelopes or categories. When an envelope is empty, you can't spend any more in that category.If you don't sneak and dig into another category, you'll still have the money you need for other things. That part is just simple math. Rob also talks about the strong psychological component to using cash. When you have to hand over actual dollars, it's much more difficult to part with them. Studies show people spend 10 to 30-percent less just by using cash instead of plastic, so it's a real help in controlling impulse spending. 2.If you already have debt, pay more than the minimum payment each month. When you pay just the minimum on your credit card, for example, a lot of that money is going toward interest only, so it will take years to pay it off.Instead, pay as much as you can above the minimum each month to get that card paid off quickly.If you have more than one card to pay off, Rob recommends paying the one with the lowest balance off first to get it out of the way, then taking what you were paying each month on that card, adding that amount to what you have to pay on the next lowest card, and pay it off in the same manner. That's called the snowball method. You'll get a quick psychological boost from paying off a card. That gives you incentive to keep going. When that's paid off, you can go on to the next card with the lowest balance and so on. 3.Avoid the lure of credit cards offering big rewards unless you already have a spending plan in place and you're already using it.Those reward points will be dwarfed by the interest payments you'll have to make if you don't pay off the entire balance each month. Many people think they won't let that happen, but then an unexpected expense comes along and the easy way out is to use the credit card.This leads to the fourth step in Rob's plan to control your money. 4.Set up an emergency fund. Rob recommends it be able to cover 3 to 6 months of living expenses. Then, when an extensive medical emergency or a job layoff pops up, you use emergency fund money to pay for it and keep you afloat. Next, Rob answers listener questions including the following: We applied for a PPP small business loan in 2020, received the money, and then applied for and were granted loan forgiveness.Are there any surprises we should be aware of on our taxes or elsewhere? I'm getting married in January, and we don't want to combine our finances until after we're married.How would you recommend we plan for the time when we DO merge our money?(Rob answers the question, but also recommends the bookMoney and Marriage God's Wayby Howard Dayton.) I'm trying to help my mom purchase her first home and may need to co-sign in order for her to qualify for a loan.I don't really have extra money to help her, so what would you recommend I do?

We're really privileged to have Cameron Mitchell, Founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, the CRM Group on this episode. And he is no stranger to anyone in central Ohio. And now Cameron Mitchell Restaurants are breaking out on the national scene, with restaurants from coast to coast. We're going to hear more about his success, his origins, where it all came from, and some of the challenges that they have in the restaurant industry today. And we'll get Cameron's take on the 10 most controversial restaurant policies. Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2022, and Mitchell has enjoyed success as a lifelong entrepreneur, accomplished businessman, culinary expert and nationally recognized restaurateur. Cameron has been a much-needed voice for the industry, pushing for PPP loan amendments for the hospitality sector, being appointed as one of 18 CEO's on Ohio Governor DeWine's Economic Recovery Task Force, collaborating with the Cleveland Clinic to create a company-wide safety protocol, writing op-eds for national hospitality trade publications, and appearing on national television representing not only CMR, but other independent restaurant companies. With an entrepreneur's energy, vision and passion, Mitchell's sights are set on the development of new restaurant concepts, and the expansion of concepts currently in his company's portfolio, particularly Ocean Prime (known in Columbus, OH, as Mitchell's Ocean Club). Plans include the continued introduction of this concept in major metropolitan markets throughout the United States. Among his service to numerous local charities and committees in Columbus, Ohio, where he lives with his family, is his dedication to The United Way, Nationwide Children's Hospital Foundation, and the Columbus State Community College Foundation. Cameron chaired the capital campaign, led by his $3.5 million donation, towards the newly opened Mitchell Hall, a $40 million, state-of-the-art Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts School at Columbus State. He is also an active member of the Young President's Gold Organization, the Columbus Partnership, and he serves on the board of directors of the charter school, KIPP Columbus. The Driving the Cbus podcast co-hosts, Scott McComb, CEO of Heartland Bank and Kailyn Bucklew (McComb), a third-generation community banker, offer two different perspectives as they sit down and get real with local business owners. From well-established companies to startups, small businesses are the heart and soul of Columbus. Tune in to find out how it all began, what keeps them up at night – the current struggles they face, and what successes they are most proud of with some entertaining stories along the way.

I have admired today's guest for a very long time! Kim Kashkashian is an internationally recognized and decorated violist who has worked tirelessly to broaden the range of technique, advocacy, and repertoire for the viola. Our conversation is absolutely filled with information and inspiration, including: Her musical journey and how her artistic path has unfolded, focusing heavily on conquering her fears and belief in chance (3:24) Why pursuing an objective view is essential to your growth (9:48) How Kim defines mindful practice... (11:26)  ...and how focusing on the entire production of your sound (including resonance, energy, and what you send out) maximizes your practice (12:51) Kim's suggestions to exercise expressive playing, including knowing exactly what a piece means to you by personifying the music (and letting how you transmit that message to an audience come second) (15:36) How the difference between intention and desire relates to the tension in performance (22:56) The distinction between being judgmental and making good differentiation, and the impact of each (29:55) Kim's advice to current music students on broadening your perspective, learning the language of music (separate from the craft of playing your instrument), and knowing the historical context of pieces (33:36) The doubt and resistance Kim has faced on her own journey (36:38) The importance of listening to yourself with love, knowing yourself and what you want to say, and knowing how to say it (37:50)   MORE ON KIM KASHKASHIAN: YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=kim+kashkashian+viola Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100063660876526   Kim Kashkashian, internationally recognized as a unique voice on the viola, was born of Armenian parents in Michigan. She studied the viola with Karen Tuttle and legendary violist Walter Trampler at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore. Since fall 2000 she has taught viola and chamber music at New England Conservatory. Following Grammy Award nominations for several previous recordings, Kashkashian received a 2012 Grammy Award in the "Best Classical Instrumental Solo" category for Kurtág and Ligeti: Music for Viola, on the ECM Records label. Kashkashian's recording, with Robert Levin, of the Brahms Sonatas won the Edison Prize in 1999. Her June 2000 recording of concertos by Bartók, Eötvös and Kurtág won the 2001 Cannes Classical Award for a premiere recording by soloist with orchestra. In 2016, Kashkashian was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Kashkashian has worked tirelessly to broaden the range of technique, advocacy, and repertoire for the viola. A staunch proponent of contemporary music, she has developed creative relationships with György Kurtág, Krzysztof Penderecki, Alfred Schnittke, Giya Kancheli, and Arvo Pärt, and commissioned works from Peter Eötvös, Ken Ueno, Thomas Larcher, Lera Auerbach, and Tigran Mansurian. Marlboro and the Viennese school represented by her mentor, Felix Galimir, were major influences in developing her love of chamber music. Kim Kashkashian is a regular participant at the Verbier, Salzburg, Lockenhaus, Marlboro, and Ravinia festivals. She has long-standing duo partnerships with pianist Robert Levin and percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky, and played in a unique string quartet with Gidon Kremer, Daniel Phillips, and Yo-Yo Ma.

Hollis Carter is an entrepreneur and avid skier who, after founding many companies in his career, recently became the co-founder of the Baby Bathwater Institute, a membership-based community of entrepreneurs with a focus on cultivating natural, mutually beneficial relationships. Since his business relied on many in-person events, it was quite affected by the Covid 19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions. During this time of cancellations and being stuck at home, Hollis thought of a way to add value to the members during this new situation and started to offer a series of services with a performance-based model. This model quickly grew and he ended up selling it before actually having to fully build an agency. In this interview, he talked about the process of building and growing an agency to over $4 million and then selling it, all during a pandemic. 3 Golden Nuggets Growing an agency during Covid. Before the pandemic, Hollis was organizing many in-person events. Once they were canceled because of this new situation, he realized he had a perfect opportunity to offer a new service that would offer value to members of his mastermind. There was already a business relationship and he knew their products and believed in them. So he got ready to work under a performance-based model. “It was really very simple,” he says. The offer included podcast interviews, email lists, and content sites. He spent on setting up all the automation and tracking and found someone to handle that. And of course, under this model he was working with clients, not for them. Simplifying the offer. How can you make things simpler for you? First of all, don't just take a good deal. This agency had the advantage of having a group of companies whose product they trusted. Even then, our guest says, they took people who were so product-focused that we were going to get the content and the angles they needed. People who knew they needed to be told how to market this product. They also let clients use the work they were creating and focused on the 10% that drove revenue. However, there are some things they would do differently a second time around: setting a flat fee and, instead of complicated spreadsheets just telling the client “here's the number that came in, this is our cut,” would save a lot of time. Finally, figuring out how to set expectations of timeline, having a written document with a timeline that the client can reread instead of emailing you questions. Pulling from other industries. Hollis believes in taking knowledge from other industries into your own. He makes sure to have participants from different types of businesses in his masterminds and sustains there's always nuggets that you can pull from other industry practices that might not exist in a niche that you're opening, like what he has learned about hiring from the hotel space. He encourages others to give themselves a chance step outside what they know and learn something new that they can implement in their business from an unexpected source.

I have another amazing show guest. We're going to talk about how when COVID hit, they formed an agency and ramped it up to over $4 million and sold it, during COVID. So it's a really cool episode and you're going to enjoy my guest. So let's go ahead and get into it. Hey, Hollis. Welcome to the show. Hollis: [00:00:29] Hey, man. Thanks for having me. Jason: [00:00:30] Pleasure to have you on. So for the people that have not heard of you or met you at one of your cool events, tell us who you are and what do you guys do? Hollis: [00:00:39] Yeah. My name is Hollis Carter. Living in Boulder, Colorado, but originally from Georgia, where I kind of got my first start in internet marketing stuff. I was like early in college and built a couple of online businesses and luckily had one that did pretty well and sold that. And then I moved to Colorado and did this skiing thing for a while and, uh, living in the mountains and it was great, but I could only talk about skiing and snowboarding and mountain biking with people. So, I'm now a front ranger living in Boulder and enjoy it and got back in the mix of things. Our main business is called the Baby Bathwater Institute. You've come out to one of our events that we had at out mountain. And, uh, I started, my other businesses based on the thing that I use to learn… Like no one was really teaching relevant stuff in the late nineties, early two thousands. So to do it, I thought let's sit at the bar and a lobby at a conference and got most of my nuggets. And so when we had some free time, me and my now business partner who were lobby con buddies for like a decade… We started hosting these events and the whole idea was curating nice people who are in the grow and scale phase and the actual founders of their business. And in a lot of different industries that we could draw knowledge from different places, less of a kind of echo chamber mastermind of people doing the same thing. Cause there's a lot of value in those, but it's very linear. This was more of organic group meetings to have fun and, um, draw things from other industries and stuff. But we have agency people, we've got guys from hotels, we've got guys from e comm businesses… I guess I say people, not guys, cause we have plenty of girls too. We've been doing it for about eight years and I love it. Compared to the businesses I've done before, it's probably the dumbest business model. Cause it's overhead-intensive, time-intensive, relationship intensive. But I actually like it. So we're doing it for years and we'll probably do it for a very long time and really enjoy it. Jason: [00:02:37] Very cool. And COVID hit you guys really hard because your whole thing is about live experiences and that kind of stuff, uh, which are a lot of fun. And so tell us about like… cause we were talking a couple of weeks ago, you were like, man, I couldn't do these live events and that's really what the membership was for. So we gave all this money back to the members because we couldn't do live events. But I started an agency kind of by accident and it quickly grew. So talk about how did you grow the agency so quick? What did you do? Because a lot of people are looking at going, and I've seen a lot of growth in agencies over during COVID, but yours was really pretty, pretty good. So tell us a little bit more about that. Hollis: [00:03:18] I think it was, it was different because much of it was born out just starting that momentum sort of grew versus sitting with a very particular plan. Where Baby Bathwater came less out of need more out of want, this came out of need. And so there… Also, we are locked in our house and I could stay focused on, cause I wasn't doing… Going to conferences or traveling or doing things. But I think the main frame was okay, just postpone slash canceled, who knows a handful of events. We basically lost about two and a half million bucks in that decision. Which happened before people in the states even believed that this COVID thing was gonna affect us because our president was in Italy. And so we saw it a little early. We knew we didn't want to let people go. There was no PPP stuff yet. And me and my partner, Michael, we always knew we could always fall back on our marketing skills, which is kind of what got us to a place to even know what people wanted from a mastermind. So our personal interests has been in the health and wellness sort of space. We see lots of stuff that's crap. And we see lots of stuff that's good. And we happened to know a few people who have amazing products that are members. But they're product guys, they're not marketing people at all. And so we kind of went in with the thesis of how do we enhance the people who are already members value and we can't do anything for 'em, but also don't run any risk of screwing up the relationship if we get in bed with them and do something different than what we already have a good relationship with. So, I mean, it basically started with four products. I knew we had people in the group who had platforms. That love the products, cause they give them out at events. They love them. And I know they have a lot of traffic and I knew these people have great products. Didn't even know what I'm talking about. Like you should just set up this campaign and get them on the podcast and set up an email. You can track it with affiliate links… And all like, can you just do that for me? Kind of thing. So, I mean, it was actually super, super simple. Essentially, out of a network license for post affiliate pro so that we could track all of the clicks and conversions and build it very slowly, not a lot of overhead. It costed maybe like five grand or something we spent getting set up and all that automation and tracking. We did have a really hard time finding someone to help us run that once it worked. We ended up finding the guy who made the tutorial videos for the original version of it and tracked him down. And it was the first hire because it was complicated and how he set up the company structure. But the basics of it was we had people get podcast, email lists and content sites. I mean, people have great products that had a unique hook. It couldn't just be like, like we did have a CBD, which is a crowded market with a bunch of people at all look the same. But this had clinical trials, some studies, so I could go get functional medicine doctors to say something unique about it and they could write a real piece of content. So really we just took the friction out of the middle, which was, it's hard for the product owners to focus on these things that are ancillary. Then buy an ad that are not doing very diligent tasks that can scale these like one-off promotions and managing people is hectic. Like if I had a brand, I wouldn't want to do stuff we were doing because I know the costliness of managing all these relationships and getting it on the calendar and getting all the stuff they need. But in our unique situation, we had time. We… the money. We wanted to serve the people who we wanted to have back when things came back online. And so it made sense to keep calling them chatting and working it out and figuring it out. So our deal is that we took... it's very minimal, it's just an average, about 10% of the revenue for 12 months of the customer. And we would do a, you know, a multi-tiered campaign where, you know, perhaps the person to get on a podcast and do an interview about the product that was very educational and content-heavy. So it didn't just come out of the blue of this promotion. It was like ease into with good questions and then we'd do an article. And then eventually kind of like an email with a special offer and a landing page just for that person. And like something I've been back in early on was when one big person promotes the rest. So we usually just go for, you know, one or two people we have a good relationship that have a big audience and then their affiliates would see it happen. And we'd get a few more of those. But we did, because it was so hands-on, mess around with people who could send, you know, thousands and thousands and thousands of clicks and had an audience that already trusted them. So very boutique, very niche, but where it worked, very effective. I'd say the biggest bottleneck was calendars. You could lock in a deal and they might not have three months so they could do it. But we hit a point where we were going to have to start hiring more people, we had a tech guy, an administrative helper in an industry that me and Michael were putting together. Then we hired someone to go start recruiting more promoters, and then we need to start hiring writers and creatives. At that point, we actually ended up selling the business so that we didn't have to build an agency. The hard part of building an agency, managing the creatives, training, we never really hit that point. Although it looks like I'll go back to the trough and do it again. But I mean, really it was about that simple. It was like performance-based so we couldn't mess up relationships. And also we didn't want anyone to ever tell us, hey, you have to do this for me. Uh, it usually mostly came from the merchants with the products. They'd be like, hey, where are the traffic? And we're like, hey, we don't, we don't work for you. We're not on a retainer, but it's coming, it's coming. Then we'll get paid. Well, we only get paid when we make sales. So that helped us not get stress out. Jason: [00:09:32] Do you feel like you have to comb through mountains of data, jumping between multiple platforms to spreadsheets, to slide decks and backing in, in order to create performance reports for your clients? It's a constant drain on your agency's time and resources. And that's where our friends at Ninja Cat can help.

You know, one of our mastermind members, David, he was always constantly under the million mark and just trying to figure out how to get over it. And he switched to this model and got a million dollars last year during COVID, just from one client for the performance deal. Kind of like what you guys are doing, or you guys did or about to do again. I guess we can talk about that. But I liked how, when you're the performance model, they can't tell you what you can and can't do, or a timeline. You're just like, I'm putting a campaign together on our own dime, our own resources. This is what you're agreed to pay. I really like that. But I also like too, that, you know, this is a home run. Like it's a good product. I want people to not kind of overlook that and just don't go up to anybody and go give me 10% of all your sales. And plus too, you guys had relationships with them so you knew you could trust them. Because it gets really tricky sometimes when you're like, yeah, give me 10% of sales and they could the books however they want. Hollis: [00:11:54] Yes. So that was an interesting piece of... The one thing that I guess is there is we did have these relationships we've built over almost 20 years now. Which, if you just do it on the street, we couldn't start from scratch with that. So that was like our one… competitively used to do something here, but the book side of things, we actually knew how bad that can get. So we control that this was a bottleneck and business model, as far as administration and just workload. I kept everything clean, but we were starting to get super risky. So we invoiced the merchant for the payments and wrote to the affiliates. We did everything. So we essentially became a bank taking the money, moving the money versus paying out of their own affiliate program. It started to get pretty hectic. You get one monthly payment. We're trying to keep the relationships paying on time. We never ran into any issues, but you could see it coming as things got more complex. Jason: [00:12:52] Well, I'm sure the IRS probably set up red flags of all the money moving around. Hollis: [00:12:57] Oh, it was crazy that was passing through and yeah… And so like in hindsight, if we do this again, won't do the complicated equation where we have 12 months tail customer. We also calculated a refund risk thing. You know, now it's going to be one time upfront with a small fee for us that continues, but like the calculating the refund piece to try to mitigate risks. Like I think we went into it wanting to be like a no-brainer where it's like, hey, we've taken all the risks where X, Y, and Z, that you won't have to do anything for. Our contract is like the nicest thing in the world. If this was the only thing we were doing, and we were focused on it that thing would have sort of bit us in the ass, as it started to grow. But it worked well. It was boutique small. And we only did this from March to October. So it was like a significant period of time, but you can see all the forethought we didn't put into it with, oh man, the amount of time to calculate these things if I would've... There's a bunch of things we do if we really want to scale it simpler. If we do this again, you know. Jason: [00:14:05] What are some of the other things that you do simpler. Because most people listening here, this is their full-time gig. They weren't just looking at like, well, let's just try this project out, which that's really pretty cool that you guys are able to do that. Hollis: [00:14:19] Yeah. I think, you know… fed the horse because we had all the relationships and we knew this I'd stayed up drinking wine with every person in the thing all night. I knew we could do well with good products, which you highlighted, is like products that kind of sell themselves. And then the owner of those products, I think this is the simplest thing is don't just take a good deal. We only took people who were so product-focused that we were going to get the content and the angles we needed. All they cared about is being the best. But they didn't care about was telling us how to market it, that they actually wanted us to tell them. They would use the campaigns to inform all of the rest of their staff. One thing we did do well and make it easy was, hey, use the work we're creating. We don't need any cut of it. You can take our landing pages, reuse them. If you get your own affiliates, you can run them through your program. You know, just do that. Cause we only focused on that 10% that drove our revenue. The things we probably would have done different or not such a complicated calculation of the things. I remember when I first started in some of the affiliate stuff, people would hold back a percentage for refunds. There was like a whole equation. But we made everything else so simple for them. We didn't need to go, that… We could have just said here's a flat fee. Here's a number. Honestly, it would have saved one employee 40 hours a month in weird stuff. And in places where ambiguity… where also the customer on both sides has to read a spreadsheet that's complicated versus like here's the number that came in and here is the cut… over. I think simplicity would have helped a lot in that sense. And then other simplicity things, I think just figuring out how to set expectations of timeline. Even though we didn't work for those people, said it on the phone, in the conversations of like, hey, we might get a campaign locked in that's going to be out this far. But then they get in their own world. Like, where's the stuff? And I'm like, no, we already told you this. And so, one outline. Here's how this works, one the phone. Before you email me any questions, reread this. This is the rules of engagement and how it works. But that I would say once it worked and had momentum, changing the relationships from I work for you to we work together changed the whole dynamic of it versus, you know, just collecting a flat fee. Jason: [00:16:49] Yeah. I love that of like we work together rather than you're the dog barking orders to me. And even if you don't do a performance model. Hollis: [00:16:58] Yeah. It feels like you kind of got to do that sometimes. Cause I feel like that's how we like learned. If you worked in a restaurant going up or we… Whatever, like that's how it was. When you're getting paid, you just got to say yes, please, and as you wish. Which honestly doesn't even serve the client that well. Sometimes you're doing shit that they don't even need to get done. They just wanted to show that they tell you to do something. But we're only going to focus on brings in dollars. It doesn't bog down either of our teams. And that's why we switched the contract that you can leave whenever you want. You know, the psychology there was great because it was like, we're paying equally versus that, you know, walked into some long retainer and some big set up fees and things like that. Obviously you have to have some results for that to be worth it, um, for the relationship to stay. But if you know you can deliver on it, then it's probably better to be in a, a mutual relationship where either party can leave in 30 days notice versus trying to lock in really long-term deals. Jason: [00:17:58] Yeah, exactly. Well, awesome. Well, this is amazing, Hollis. Is there anything I didn't ask you that you think would benefit the audience listening in? Hollis: [00:18:05] Listen, I mean, it's funny just because it's a friend of mine that just got off a call with one of our members who, who set them up on like a little dinner in the same town. And I forget the book references basically it's about taking knowledge from other industries and bringing them into your own. So what I saw was great was a lot of the product companies who were here like some of them were in retail and other things. They just didn't know how to pull stuff from other areas. There's always like these levers that you can pull from other industry practices that might not exist in a niche that you're opening that you're trying to mark it as that in. And so I was really, all we did was just start reaching into other tools that there's no way they're ever going to get to this. So obviously we can take over this part for them and we're not also dealing with the dynamics. So there's someone in the house already being paid to do this or anything like that. It's pretty clean that way. But I think we just learned that from sitting in these events from people like, you know, we have some hiring stuff we've learned from guys in the hotel space, which I never would have thought to learn that until I sat into that at one of these events or whatever. So I've never seen through blinders. Like it's good to be focused and linear, but I think there's just so many cool nuggets in different industries you can pull and bring in that we all just kind of forget to take a glance at. Jason: [00:19:30] Awesome. Well, cool. Well, what's a website people go and check you guys out? Hollis: [00:19:35] Just babybathwater.com. Jason: [00:19:37] Awesome. Well, thanks so much for coming on the show. If you guys enjoyed this episode, make sure you go to their website. They have really cool events. I went to the one in, in Utah. And it was really pretty amazing. And if you guys want to really grow and scale your agency faster, what got you here is not going to get you to the next level and you need to do a number of different things. Because probably what got you to this level is from referrals and word of mouth, or maybe you selling, or maybe one salesperson. The biggest thing that you need is systems in place in order to grow and scale faster and get to the point where you can pick and choose. If you want to do that, I want you guys to check out our agency playbook. Go to jasonswenk.com/playbook and check it out. And it might just be the thing that will get you to the next level. So go do that now. And until next time, have a Swenk day.

Business Lunch
The Importance of Direct Communication with Roland Frasier and Ryan Deiss

Business Lunch

A good leader communicates directly and truthfully without sugarcoating.   In today's episode, co-hosts Roland Frasier and Ryan Deiss recount a recent leadership meeting of their central holding company, Scalable Equity. According to Ryan, the meeting was going “fine” until Roland “started yelling at this one guy out of nowhere.” Roland's rendition of what happened is nothing like Ryan's.   These differing perspectives caused Roland and Ryan to reevaluate things and ask some important questions like: How do you yell at people when they're screwing up? How do you talk to people at an executive leadership level vs. your subordinates? Do we need to worry about people's feelings? What's the best way to deliver uncomfortable truths?   Listen in as they tackle a hard topic head-on.   Two Sides to the Same Story Ryan gives his version of the leadership meeting first. Things were going fine. They were talking over their priorities. Then Roland started yelling about how they had goals that didn't get met, projects that didn't get finished on time. He was frustrated and let his feelings be known. Ryan said they were all frustrated, but he was still surprised that Roland came in with “guns blazing.”   Roland says Ryan's characterization isn't accurate. He felt like the meeting was all BS. Everyone was being inauthentic and pretending to be this perfect image. He was surprised that people were faking fine.   From Roland's point of view, it started with looking at one particular company's financials. They received PPP money, and have a line of credit. The company had missed its goals by a fair amount, and the current month was tracking even worse. They'd made a lot of changes, but they were using PPP money that was supposed to be sacrosanct.    Roland says there had been rumors of people complaining about variable comp, and they needed to understand they were underperforming. A company called DigitalMarketer shouldn't have a struggling marketing department.  He loves them all, but they need to fix this, and the leadership team is responsible.   He says he wasn't picking on one guy. He was talking to everyone. (He called this person after the meeting to clear things up.)    Sugarcoating vs. Being Real Roland and Ryan discuss the whole “praise in public, reprimand in private” concept. They agree that yes, you need to be careful not to damage someone reputationally by coming down on them hard in front of others. But, in a leadership meeting, you need to be able to talk directly. It's tempting to sugarcoat, but the longer you go without saying what you need to say, the harder it gets.    If you're going to talk to a person about their performance (or lack of), that should be done in private. But when you're talking about the company and saying, “Here's where we're falling down and here's where we stand as a consequence of that, and that can't continue and we all need to pull together and figure out how we're going to help correct that,” you've got to be able to have that conversation with your leadership team. They don't need to be beat up on or singled out, but they need to hear the truth and where the collective leadership is failing.   Roland said he didn't make an emotional outburst; he delivered the facts intentionally in the way he thought would convey the biggest impact. He thought about the words he was using and chose to say “marketing” instead of a person's name.   Ryan said he wished he would have known ahead of time that Roland was going to bring it up, so he could have been prepared. But he realizes that a leadership meeting is literally for discussing problems. If they're not going to meet for real talk, then why are they even meeting?    He says a leadership team can't be effective unless they can piss each other off and still move on from that. If you're hyper-obsessed with not hurting people's feelings, how will you ever get good work done?   From This Point Forward In the past, Roland would have said, “Screw those people if they don't get it. I don't care if their feelings are hurt.” But Ryan and Richard have taught him a lot about being focused on culture. He now sees the importance of hearing people and apologizing and constructive criticism.   From now on, Roland is going to talk to Richard and Ryan ahead of the meeting, then bring up negative things by saying, “I've talked to Richard and Ryan, and we've agreed this needs to be addressed.”   The company will go so much further so much faster and the praise will mean so much more when everyone is willing to be constructively critical of themselves. They need to know they're all there to improve the company and each other. Be honest when things are great, and be honest when things aren't going so well.    Let's tie a bow on this, be done with it, and get back to making money.   OUR PARTNERS: Scalable Impact Live (November 2-3, 2021) Get a free proposal from Conversion Fanatics Get 3% cash back on your ad spend with AdCard PodBean, your all-in-one podcasting solution
