Christ warned us that in the last days before his return that our societies, our lifestyles, our economies, our world would be just as it was during the Days of Noah: 'But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. ' Matthew 24:37 Now what occurred during the days of Noah to make God decided that he wanted to destroy the entire world? Some would say sin, but "Sin" is breaking Gods Laws and/or doing anything that is forbidden of the Lords Commands. Did God Command the world during the days of Noah to follow his instructions, his laws, his ways? Did they start to stray from the ways of God, like we are today and is this the real reason why God destroyed the world during the days of Noah: "And when Enoch had ascended into heaven, all the kings of the earth rose and took Methuselah his son and anointed him, and they caused him to reign over them in the place of his father. And Methuselah acted uprightly in the sight of God, as his father Enoch had taught him, and he likewise during the whole of his life taught the sons of men wisdom, knowledge and the fear of God, and he did not turn from the good way either to the right or to the left. But in the latter days of Methuselah, the sons of men turned from the Lord, they corrupted the earth, they robbed and plundered each other, and they rebelled against God and they transgressed, and they corrupted their ways, and would not hearken to the voice of Methuselah, but rebelled against him." Jasher 4:2-4 Noah preached to the world for 120 years. Proclaiming to them to follow the Laws, Ways, Commandments of the Lord, but they refused to listen: “And after the lapse of many years, in the four hundred and eightieth year of the life of Noah, when all those men, who followed the Lord had died away from amongst the sons of men, and only Methuselah was then left, God said unto Noah and Methuselah, saying, Speak ye, and proclaim to the sons of men, saying, Thus saith the Lord, return from your evil ways and forsake your works, and the Lord will repent of the evil that he declared to do to you, so that it shall not come to pass.For thus saith the Lord, Behold I give you a period of one hundred and twenty years; if you will turn to me and forsake your evil ways, then will I also turn away from the evil which I told you, and it shall not exist, saith the Lord. And Noah and Methuselah spoke all the words of the Lord to the sons of men, day after day, constantly speaking to them. But the sons of men would not hearken to them, nor incline their ears to their words, and they were stiffnecked. And the Lord granted them a period of one hundred and twenty years, saying, If they will return, then will God repent of the evil, so as not to destroy the earth.” Jasher 5:6-11 In order for us to heed the words of Christ and be on alert for the signs of this world going as the Days of Noah did. We must know what occurred, why did God destroy the world? I know it sounds like a broken record, but God is not a man that he should lie and he does not change. God destroyed the world during the Days of Noah because they refused to follow his commands and therefore they sinned!

Hello everyone!  I've got some of my pastoral theory lined up here, some of my plans for the future for my pastoral leadership.  I have three categories:1) Proclaiming the Basic Gospel Message: part of this is establishing a solid landing pad of beautiful church's worthy of God, hospitable people and a community devoted to fellowship.  Then, we train people to give the Gospel proclamation in every corner of our lives!2) Catechesis: I find the best way to do this is with online resources.3) Evangelization training.  The ways that I'm investing in is with workshops for specific groups, inviting people to Cursillo, advocating some key people to be trained spiritual directors so they can continue the process independently of the pastor (though in cooperation with him).

It's one thing to internalize a promise from God, it's another to make that a public proclamation. When we're open about our faith and the promises we're holding onto – especially in a difficult or unknown season – we're inviting others to experience the goodness and faithfulness of God, too. While it's not always the easiest step to take, proclaiming our faith publicly has greater impact than we might imagine.

Full Text of ReadingsMonday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 311The Saint of the day is Saint Berard and CompanionsSaint Berard and Companions' Story Preaching the gospel is often dangerous work. Leaving one's homeland and adjusting to new cultures, governments and languages is difficult enough; but martyrdom caps all the other sacrifices. In 1219, with the blessing of Saint Francis, Berard left Italy with Peter, Adjute, Accurs, Odo and Vitalis to preach in Morocco. En route in Spain, Vitalis became sick and commanded the other friars to continue their mission without him. They tried preaching in Seville, then in Muslim hands, but made no converts. They went on to Morocco where they preached in the marketplace. The friars were immediately apprehended and ordered to leave the country; they refused. When they began preaching again, an exasperated sultan ordered them executed. After enduring severe beatings and declining various bribes to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ, the friars were beheaded by the sultan himself on January 16, 1220. These were the first Franciscan martyrs. When Francis heard of their deaths, he exclaimed, “Now I can truly say that I have five Friars Minor!” Their relics were brought to Portugal where they prompted a young Augustinian canon to join the Franciscans and set off for Morocco the next year. That young man was Anthony of Padua. These five martyrs were canonized in 1481. Reflection The deaths of Berard and his companions sparked a missionary vocation in Anthony of Padua and others. There have been many, many Franciscans who have responded to Francis' challenge. Proclaiming the gospel can be fatal, but that has not stopped the Franciscan men and women who even today risk their lives in many countries throughout the world.

Butterfly Thoughts with Kelly Savage
What's Your Problem?

Butterfly Thoughts with Kelly Savage

“What's Your Problem?”   Today, I was presented with an issue.  A problem.  A conundrum.  Whatever you want to call it.   It wasn't mine but someone else's issue who was talking to me about it.    They were trying to figure out a solution. Come to a resolve.  Work it through and get an answer that fixed the problem.   I cared about this issue since I cared about the person and wanted to help, so I started thinking of real resolutions and how to solve.   As I was getting ready for the morning just a few minutes after the conversation, I took about 5 minutes and came up with an Option A or an Option B.  Both were easy to come up with, but one really seemed good, like it fit, was going to work and solve the issue.  BINGO!    I presented the suggestion, and it was well received!  Ok, matter solved.   Easy Peasey!  Next!   But, of course, my mind just shifts into the workings of our minds.  Our choices.  And my moment with God and my butterfly whisper flew in.    That is where doors open.  The answer.  Issues can be resolved.  Answers can come. But the answers may require action.  The power of choice to make the goal, take the steps, see things happen and evolve.    You hear me often, or you will if you listen to my podcast or do life coaching with me, that the power of choice is vital.  It's totally underestimated.  It is not fully recognized for the power it holds.  It is so necessary but sometimes not used. I could go on and on, but I won't however……   How come we can't always think of a quick solution for our problems?   Is it because it is our problem?  Can we not be objective looking into as a third party?   Maybe we don't want to work for it if there are steps involved?  How about if the answer requires patience?   Maybe we don't want to get out of a “normal” routine or, you know, the “familiar” road.   Maybe……because it is our issue there are too many emotions wrapped up into it and we all know emotions can get messy.   Perhaps…………   Anxiety gets us in a tizzy.   The unfamiliar is a bit scary.   We are in rut and can't seem to get out.   Maybe we are concentrating so much on the issue that we are not thinking of a resolution, so we become stuck.   Could it be depression that one can't seem to think at all, or it seems too overwhelming.   Those are a lot of maybes and there could be a slew more, but let's pump the brakes and shift our focus.    PERSPECTIVE.   Use your power of choice and instead of saying, “I got a problem”, try saying “Here's my issue, now I will think of a solution”.   By the way, we all have issues, some little, some big, some consistent, but even the minor ones can really seem big to a person when they are dealing with it.  Contemplating over which ones are bigger, smaller, more serious, etc. will not help anyone.   So, if you mix up your words and proclaim that you will find the answer. What will that do?   I don't know. However, if you are stuck on a problem, keep repeating it and going over it in your mind constantly and not coming out with an answer, it's worth a try, right?    We have all heard of “nothing changes if nothing changes”.  Please allow me to repeat.  Nothing changes if nothing changes”   What we focus on and what we do matters.  What we think matters.  I might just change the title from, “What's Your Problem?” to “What's Your Answer?”.   Disclaimer Time!   Proclaiming we have an answer doesn't make it true. Certainly, doesn't make it go away and “poof” problem is solved.    There are steps.  There are decisions.  There is a power of choice to lean into.  There could be small goals needed to get to larger ones and continuous steps that are different than our auto pilot we are currently on. There is a focus needed on a solution bigger than our focus on the issue.  Leaning into your faith and praying that God will help, will help. Truth. He will always walk aside of you, guide you and strengthen, pour out grace and more.  But God requires us, by our choices, to walk through things as well and when change is needed in our life, we must do our part.    Sometimes just “keep on keeping on” in faith, leaning on Him to move in the situation is required. Sometimes He asks us to wait and be still.  If that is what He wants, that is revealed in our conversations and relationship with Him and Holy Spirit moments and us releasing to Him.   However, there are plenty of times, plenty of circumstances and situations in our life that He will not do it for us.  Our friends do not do things for us.  If they do, it very well may not help in the end.  To know the difference of God moving and us doing, of God taking the lead or releasing the lead to us is wisdom.  You yielding to what is asked and taking your power of choice and walking it out is vital, needed, necessary and the very thing that is pivotal if your life.   Walking through things is sometimes the very thing that strengthens us, matures us, grows us, and develops us into the people we are at this moment and the people we will become in the future.   So, here's to the “After the Sermon” series and Butterfly Thoughts.   Here's to issues.   Here's to solutions.   Here's to prayer.   Here's to power of choice.   Here's to the ability to open up and develop wisdom.   Here's to learning.   Here's to growth.   Here's to different perspectives.    Here's to knowing when to be still and when to move.   The beauty is in the blend of us yielding, being still, listening, acting, using our power of choice, releasing to Him and resting in a relationship with Him.   With Love,    Kelly Savage Your Life Coach

Proclaiming The Word Of The LordReader: Jon WatsonDate: 21st December 2022Passage: Acts 15:36-------------------How would you describe what the minister or preacher does at the sermon time in church? You get a good clue in the verse above! Paul and Barnabas had proclaimed the word of the Lord in all the places they had visited. Proclamation is preaching — it is announcing publicly what God wants us to hear.The Apostle Peter used the word proclamation when speaking about the prophets foretelling the coming of Jesus (Acts 3:24). It is also used when we read that the Lord's Supper 'shows forth' (proclaims) the death of the Lord Jesus. Going to church should take on a new meaning for us if we took seriously the expectation that we were to listen to the proclamation of the word of God. It is not something to be just accepted as another part of the service — it is the main part — it is the public 'sending forth' of God's eternal word.As we are coming up to Christmas let's remember that God proclaimed Jesus as the great Messiah through whom all the promises of salvation were to come. It was a proclamation of Good News to a dying world — and it still is. Let us be thrilled by it! PrayerAlmighty God, we pray that you will bless the proclamation of your word wherever it goes out. Amen.

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”  Luke 1:46–47There is an age-old question that asks, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Well, perhaps it's an age-old “question” because only God knows the answer to how He created the world and all the creatures within it.Today, this first line from the glorious song of praise of our Blessed Mother, the Magnificat, poses to us another question. “Which comes first, to praise God or to rejoice in Him?” Perhaps you've never asked yourself that question, but it's worth pondering both the question and the answer.This first line of Mary's song of praise identifies two actions taking place within her. She “proclaims” and she “rejoices.” Think about those two interior experiences. The question can be better phrased like this: Did Mary proclaim God's greatness because she was first filled with joy? Or was she filled with joy because she first proclaimed the greatness of God? Perhaps the answer is a bit of both, but the ordering of this line in Sacred Scripture implies that she first proclaimed and as a result was filled with joy.This is not just a philosophical or theoretical reflection; rather, it is a very practical one that offers significant insight into our daily lives. Oftentimes in life we wait to be “inspired” by God before we thank and praise Him. We wait until God touches us, fills us with a joyful experience, answers our prayer and then we respond with gratitude. This is good. But why wait? Why wait to proclaim the greatness of God? Should we proclaim the greatness of God when things are difficult in life? Yes. Should we proclaim the greatness of God when we do not feel His presence in our lives? Yes. Should we proclaim the greatness of God even when we encounter the heaviest of crosses in life? Most certainly yes.Proclaiming the greatness of God should not only be done after some powerful inspiration or answer to prayer. It should not only be done after we experience the closeness of God. Proclaiming God's greatness is a duty of love and must always be done, every day, in every circumstance, no matter what. We proclaim God's greatness primarily because of Who He is. He is God. And He is worthy of all our praise for that fact alone.Interestingly, however, the choice to proclaim the greatness of God, both in good times and in difficult times, often also leads to the experience of joy. It appears that Mary's spirit rejoiced in God her Savior primarily because she first proclaimed His greatness. Joy comes from first serving God, loving Him and giving Him the honor due His name.Reflect, today, upon this twofold process of proclaiming and rejoicing. Proclaiming must always come first, even if we feel as though there is nothing to rejoice about. But if you can commit yourself to the proclamation of the greatness of God, you will suddenly find that you have discovered the deepest cause of joy in life: God Himself.Dearest Mother, you chose to proclaim the greatness of God. You acknowledged His glorious action in your life and in the world, and your proclamation of these truths filled you with joy. Pray for me that I may also seek to glorify God each and every day, no matter what challenges or blessings I receive. May I imitate you, dear Mother, and share also in your perfect joy.  Mother Mary, pray for me.  Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2022 My Catholic Life!

Because it came in the mail and you can't hide it. Right, right. In a big envelope. It came in a big, giant envelope and you're the one in charge of getting the mail. [00:00:28] Yeah. So I, I watch a lot of YouTube videos and I feel like I should be plugging this and I should have an affiliate link, but I don't . Right, right. I don't . But when you went to established titles and I now have a certificate, Proclaiming me as a Lord. I'm not calling you Lord. I'm just not. I am, I can now officially change my credit cards to Lord John Williams. [00:00:55] Oh my God. I hope you do that. Yes, that would be so, yeah. So if you don't know, it's you can, you can buy these, they're called souvenir titles, but you actually have. souvenir rights to, oh, whatever that means, a one by one plot of land in Scotland. , right? . And you get the deed to it. And then because you're now a landowner in Scotland, you are a Lord. [00:01:20] You are technically a Lord. So you now can refer to me as Lord. No. No. Well, not John Williams. But well you, that means you get to be a lady. Oh, well now, now that changes things. We can be like Lord and Lady, that changes everything. Yes, . It does. So you're gonna call me Lord, my my Lord, . Aha. Only if you call me my lady, my lady [00:01:45] All right, my lady. I feel like you should be kissing my hand when you do that, my lady. Well, I'm the Lord . Oh Lord. Well, I believe that I have created a monster. Yeah, but it [00:02:00] was one of those fun novelty gifts. That's cool. I'll put it right over top of my diploma. . I'm no longer John Williams. Oh. Graduate of Appalachian State University. [00:02:12] I am now Lord John Williams. Landowner in Scotland. , right? Oh wow. So . But anyway, there you go. There you go. So today on the podcast, the Short Term Rental Authority Podcast, we are here to help make you the best operator ever. So let's get down to the real business. This is pricing 1 0 1. This is the very basics of pricing. [00:02:46] So we are going to be talking about the pricing tool that we use, which we have mentioned before. What type of pricing we use, the numbers that you need to know and why you need to know them. So let's get started, shall we? This is something that we get asked a lot about by just about everybody because. [00:03:11] Pricing, I feel like is one of the hardest things to do in the short term rental space. Don't you think? It is. It's, it's one of the, the harder things because there, it's, it's not an exact science. Yeah. A lot of it, sometimes it's, it's a little bit of an art to it. Mm-hmm. and then there are different strategies. [00:03:30] Right. that go along with, well, how do I price? Right, right. And how do I, well, let's talk about the basic strategy. So that's, that's where we should start, is just the basics. We should, yeah. And I, I think that really starts with knowing your numbers. Okay. And when I say knowing your numbers, we talked about this before, but bear's repeating. [00:03:52] You need to know what is your baseline? Like, what does a night cost you? We call that your break even. [00:04:00] That's what we call that. Well, it's not in quotes. It really is your breakeven . Well, I'm, I'm saying that's what we call it. Well, that's what you call it in business, I think break even is your, but yeah, it's your breakeven number, right? [00:04:10] Yeah. But it's your breakeven number and it's basically, if no one stayed there, if you had this house, you had this apartment, you had this, whatever, you got your, yeah. Treat helps. What does, what does that thing cost? on a monthly basis to just have and operate, then that could be either whether you own it or whether you are leasing it. [00:04:35] Yeah, it doesn't matter. Doesn't matter. That's just what are your total expenses if no one stayed there. So here's the things it doesn't include. Cause that's probably easier to say. It doesn't include cleaning, right? It does not include cleaning. Cause nobody stays there, so there's no cleaning, right? It doesn't include supplies, right? [00:04:52] Because if nobody stays there, there's no supplie. , but there are certain things you still have to pay. You still have to pay rent, you have to pay your mortgage, you have to pay your electric bill. Your utilities. Yeah. Which are technically a variable expense, but in this case, we've treat them as a fixed expense because you don't turn off the power just because nobody's there. [00:05:12] Right, right. There's water. There's your insurance that you're paying. There's any software subscriptions that you have. Oh, that's, that's a really good point. You know, most of those charge per. or on an annual basis or something. Mm-hmm. . And you're paying that whether someone stays there or not. Right. So that's, that could be the, the pricing software that you are using, which is what we use as Price Labs. [00:05:38] There are others out there, right? Like there's Price Labs Wheelhouse and Yeah. Wheelhouse Beyond Pricing is another, there are many others I've discovered, but we use Price Labs. We find it to be fairly accurate in our area. , do you want to go down the road of tools? Well, yes, but just Price Labs. [00:06:00] Okay. [00:06:00] Well, when I hear the normal thing I would tell somebody is that Price Labs is a tool. You should be using it. What it does is it does what's called dynamic pricing. So instead of doing something simple like, Hey, my place is $150 a night every. Regardless of the night or doing something like, okay, well it's a hundred dollars during the week and it's 150 on the weekends. [00:06:27] What this tool does is it actually prices out every single night differently, differently just about, and it bases its pricing on, first of all, you give it a a base price to work. It may suggest one, and then what it does is either takes that base price and either lowers it or raises it based on a number of factors. [00:06:53] One of the primary ones being demand. So your holidays gonna be more your Monday and the middle of July, or not July, but January is gonna be. Right, using that. Cause that's our low season because January sucks. In general pricing days further away, meaning further out, or more days closer in or less, because it's tr what it's trying to do is get your days booked. [00:07:22] Right. And that, that kind of goes back to the what is your strategy of pricing. So in general, , we need to then first discover what our expenses mm-hmm. , right? So we know how low we can go. What does a day cost us? Really critical number to know it is because if you think about it, it, you're basically taking what would be a wholesale purchase. [00:07:49] Mm-hmm. meaning a, a whole year's worth of availability. Yeah. And you're dividing it up into. Probably and then selling nights. So it's, [00:08:00] it's much like the same thing as you would go to you know, a wholesale place like a Costco or a Sam's Club or whatever, and you would buy whatever it is in bulk. It could be water, it could be candy, it could be bullet paper. [00:08:14] It could be ice cream. Ice cream. Huh? The the ice cream lady that comes around. That's right. Yep. And sells it outta the truck. She buys those at Costco. Yep. But she buys them in bulk, so she gets a little bit of a discount. Mm-hmm. . And then for the convenience of, she pulls up in the ice cream truck and it's cold, and you just go out to the end of the driveway. [00:08:32] Well, the ice cream she paid 25 cents for is now a dollar 50. . Yeah. She just recently upped her prices. I noticed. . Oh, she did? Yes. Okay. Well, it used to be a dollar. Now it's a dollar 50. Everything's inflated. Everything's inflated. Everything's inflated. But the idea is you the ice cream truck lady, even the ice cream truck lady. [00:08:50] Mm-hmm. . That's sad. I know it is. But anyway, , what were you talking about? I was saying buy it. Buy it wholesale. Right? Right. Sell it retail. Basical. And it's the same thing that we're doing with our pricing. So we need to know what is that wholesale cost and it's your expenses. You got a formula for that? I have a rule of thumb for that. [00:09:14] Oh, okay. All right. A rule of thumb. Yeah. So the, the actual answer is what are your real expenses and do you have a bookkeeper? And do you keep track of that? Hmm. Ooh, right. So when I ask somebody, so a lot, a lot of times this comes up so, we'll, I'll have a coaching call. Somebody will book a coaching call with us, which you can do, by the way. [00:09:35] Just DM us on social media, the word coaching. Well, you'll get an automated response and you'll be in the system. But when I get one of those coaching calls, and a lot of times it's for pricing this time of year. Yep. Right? And the first thing I'll ask is, okay, well what are your expenses? You know, if nobody stayed there, same, same idea. [00:09:57] If nobody stayed there, what? What does this place [00:10:00] cost you a month? And somebody will tell me it's about 1800 bucks, or it's $2,000. And from the response, I immediately know that they don't know what their actual cost is because it's not, it's not an even number. Right. It's not an even number. Right, right. [00:10:17] I'd rather someone tell me it's $1,732 and 86 cents. Right. , because now I know that you actually looked it up and know what your cost is. Right. Can I, can I just stop you right there? Yeah. Because as a practical matter, I feel like. it, it's important to tell people that, that that is actually something that you should be tracking and, and your bookkeeper will hopefully be doing that for you. [00:10:49] So big, huge plug for go get a bookkeeper and, and if you're just getting started, there is a rule of thumb out there for. , right? So when you start a new unit is really what you're saying. Yes. Because it could be, Hey, we've been doing this for a while, right? If we go up, you know, open new units in a whole different market, we don't know either. [00:11:15] Yes. Like there are tools out there that we've talked about like air DNA and things like that, and we've talked about why that's not as accurate as it could be. So for a rule of thumb, if you wanna take a rule of thumb, take whatever market rent for that property. as a long-term rental on a per month basis. [00:11:33] So let's say, hey, normally, you know, if we, we put this house up and it was a long-term rental, it would, the rent would be 1500 bucks. And this, this holds true whether you own it or not, right? Just what's market rent. And then take that market rent and multiply that number by one point. . So if it was $1,500, I would multiply one by 1.3, I would get [00:12:00] $1,950. [00:12:02] you already know this. I do know this. I've done this calculation a lot, . And we say that because generally your fixed expenses are going to be about 30% of your rent more then Yes. So that, that's the. That's the rule of thumb. Is it gonna be exactly right? No, because it's a rule of thumb, but it's gonna get really close. [00:12:27] But it's gonna get really close after talking to people in all sorts of different markets, from everything from California to New York, to DC to rural Alabama, to Louisiana, to Oklahoma, you name it that that is generally true. To a, to a vast degree. And the, and I will give you a caveat. It assumes that you're paying market rent. [00:12:53] Mm-hmm. . So if you are renting the place and you're overpaying for it, then that'll skew your number. . So if they, but if that is true market rent, then that's about right. Mm-hmm. , and that's about what you can expect, right? So market rent times 1.3 Yes. Will give you your fixed expenses, rent plus fixed expenses roundabout within a hundred, 200 bucks, right? [00:13:15] And then what I do, then it would take that, cause I need to know how much the heck that cost me a day. Well, the average number of days in a month is 30, so I would take that 19, 50 or whatever it comes out to. or use your real numbers ideally and divide that by 30, and now I know exactly how much does each day cost me. [00:13:36] When this place is vacant, what does it cost me in dollars? Because remember, I can't sell today, yesterday, right? Or tomorrow I should say. You can't sell today, tomorrow, today. Tomorrow. Right. And yesterday's gone. And yesterday's gone. So if it doesn't sell, yesterday's Gone. Is that a song? Mm-hmm. . Yeah. It's, it must be an 80 song. [00:13:57] It is . Okay. [00:14:00] If I'm ever in a trivia thing and there's a music category, Wendy's on my team. Yeah. I, I gotta think about who sings it though. Yeah. I answer history questions. She answers. . Pop. Pop. Yes. Pop trivia. Pop trivia. Yes. But anyway, I'm gonna take those, the expenses of the month divided by 30, and that tells me what a day cost me. [00:14:20] Okay, so rent times 1.3 divided by 30. Yes. And that tells me truly what a day cost me. Now that's not the true cost. because that assumes a hundred percent occupancy. Occupancy. I, I was wondering where you were going with that. Right. So we've left out an expense, and that expense that we have left out is vacancy. [00:14:44] Vacancy, because you're going to have vacancy. You just are even on a long-term rental. If you don't account for vacancy, good luck, . Right, right. It's a, it's an expense. Right. So what we tend to do is, We shoot for 80% occupancy. So we would take that number and instead of dividing it by 30, which is a hundred percent of a month, let's divide it by 80% of a month. [00:15:10] And that's now 24 days out of 30 is 80% of it. Mm-hmm. . So that raises the what each night costs you a little bit because now you're accounting for vacancy. A little bit of vacancy. Right? Right. So now it. rent times 1.3 divided by 24. Yes. Right. And now, okay, now I've accounted for all of my real expenses. [00:15:35] Plus, well, a very real expense, which is vacancy. Mm-hmm. . Yep. Okay. I think a lot of people have missed that. Yeah. And you, and you may need to adjust that for your market. Mm-hmm. , you know, if 60% is your average over a year. right then. Okay. Use 60. Mm-hmm. use 60% of a loan, but that tells you what that night cost you. [00:15:55] Mm-hmm. , that's what you're projecting at least. Right? And so that's [00:16:00] important because the pricing tool is very good at getting you the high, the the higher end days. Like if it's Christmas, it's gonna raise the price. If there's an event in your town, it's gonna notice that there's demand and it's gonna raise the price. [00:16:14] But what it doesn't know is what your costs. , it doesn't know how low you can go. It doesn't know how low you can go. And you have to tell it that unless you tell it. And if you don't know your numbers, you can't tell it the appropriate thing. Right, right. And that's why it's important for you to know that. [00:16:32] Yes. So now you know, okay, here's how low I can go. And now that I know how low I can go, and then I realize that I can't sell today, tomorrow, tomorrow, that means that today should always be at my. . Yes. So if today is vacant, it should be at whatever I calculate at my minimum or perhaps even lower or per, I was gonna say, cuz I noticed sometimes it is lower. [00:16:57] Yeah, sometimes I'll put it lower because I would, cuz if I know that a day cost me, for example, 50 bucks, like I did the calculations, I figured out, okay, a day cost me $50. I would rather sell it for 20. then lose 50 Because if I sell it for 25, I only lose 25. Yeah. I mean, something's better than nothing. [00:17:16] So it's kind of like, would you rather lose $25 or $50? Right. Because that's what it costs you. Right? Right. If it says vacant, right. But at least in the tool, I can set that minimum cuz I know I can always do that. I know I'm always willing to break even. . I, I like the analogy of bananas on the shelf. Ooh, this is a good analogy. [00:17:35] Do this one. So when you're selling fruit, but I'm using bananas, they, they don't last forever. Right? They have a shelf life, right. And bananas. They sit out, they get brown, and eventually nobody wants to buy 'em. And then you throw 'em out. So if you can't, if you don't, then you can use 'em for smoothies. Oh my God. [00:17:55] You're gonna sell rotten banana strips. They go rotten eventually. That's true, right? . . [00:18:00] The point is that the grocery store will almost give you the bananas. Yeah. That are bad. Cause they're just gonna throw 'em in the trash anyway. Right, right. So the price gets lower and lower. The riper they are. Right. And so it is with your, your nightly rate as well today is really ripe and it goes rotten tomorrow. [00:18:20] Right, right. It's gonna go rotten tomorrow. So sell it for something. Yes. Something's better than nothing. And if you can sell it with a bunch of other days. you actually can reap some profit on, right? Sure. Right. But the, the goal is really for our first goal is always don't lose money. The second goal is, okay, if I gotta lose something, don't lose all of it. [00:18:41] Right? And then the third goal is, okay, now let's go make our profit elsewhere. Right? Right. So today is going to be at cost. At least say at least, at least at cost. But tomorrow's gonna be maybe a little bit. Right. And then the next day is gonna be a little bit more than that. Mm-hmm. . And the day after, that's gonna be a little bit more than that. [00:19:05] So it's incrementally, right. And if you look a month ahead, then okay, now those prices are way up. Mm-hmm. , right? Because they're a month in advance. Right. So that, that's the way it generally works. But what happens is people are afraid to go too low. Mm. because they're afraid. They're afraid. If I set my place for $25, then who is gonna stay there? [00:19:27] Yeah. Somebody that you don't want . Right. And I, and I get the sentiment, but there are ways to get around that that I won't get in that right now where you can actually use that $25 day to get a week or a two week long booking that you wouldn't have necessarily gotten otherwise because you were afraid to go too low. [00:19:49] Mm. Right. On a particular day. Right. So that it, that's why I say there's, there's a bit of science to it. There's a bit of an art to it. But if you wanna take something away from [00:20:00] that and you're using a pricing tool, go look at the calendar for one of your listings. And even if today is booked, it should tell you what did it calculate for today? [00:20:10] Mm-hmm. as a daily rate. So if today was vacant, what, what number is it showing you? And it ought to be at your cost. And if it's not, or. Or lower, but the tool is only gonna go to the minimum. Mm-hmm. , which we gave it as cost. Mm-hmm. , right? So it should be at cost. Mm-hmm. . And if it's not, then the tool's not set up properly and you might wanna jump on a coaching call. [00:20:34] So I can help you with that and get, get your tool optimized so it's actually working for you and not against you. Because if it's in those cases, it's actually working against you on the low end. Mm. . Yeah, and we, and we can definitely help you out with that. Let me, let me rephrase that. John can help you out with that. [00:20:53] I can help you out to a certain extent, but John would love to talk to you. About your pricing. I would, I like talking about that stuff. That, that is your specialty. You , you were talking to a student just the other day and not 15 minutes after you got off the coaching call. She got a seven. Yeah, she got a seven. [00:21:12] She got a seven night. Yeah, she got a seven night booking after y'all made those changes. So hop on a coaching call with us. We would love to, to help you out with with that pricing and that pricing tool and getting that tool set up and making sure that, first of all, You're using a pricing tool and you know why you're using a pricing tool and you know how to use it. [00:21:35] It's an expert tool that you need to learn how to use. Expert Lee as our mentor, Jay Massey always told us, and we can teach you how to do that. So we would, we would love to to help you out. To help you out with that. Did we cover the three things? We did Indeed. Okay. Yeah. You, you did a great job. My Lord. [00:21:56] My Lord. , my lady . [00:22:00] Yeah. Don't get you. I'm gonna be an affiliate link for that. Established titles, and we're gonna put it in the YouTube . There you go. There you go. I like it. YouTube description. Look for it. I like it. I like it a lot, . So we hope you found some value in today's podcast, and if you did go like and subscribe and you will get notified of all the fabulous podcasts that we have available so far, and the ones that are coming up in the future. [00:22:29] And I have a feeling that 2023 is going to be spectacular. So we'll see. . Onto the next. Onto the next. [00:22:44]

GUEST: MIKE GENDRON, Founder and Evangelist, Proclaiming the Gospel MinistriesIt's lamentable but not surprising in our God-rejecting world that Christmas has become about everything than what it should be—the incarnation of the Son of God.Yes, Jesus was most likely not born on December 25. Yes, many of our Christian forbears didn't even celebrate Christ's birth. And yes, several of the traditions of Christmas, such as trees and mistletoe, are rooted in paganism.That being said, for most Christians, Christmas is a season to celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ into our world and ponder anew the miraculous aspects of God's redemptive plan, which include Old Testament prophecies, virgin birth, and how God became man.This weekend on The Christian Worldview, Mike Gendron, founder and evangelist with Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries, joins us to to discuss these mind-stretching truths of Christmas and how the Christ of Christmas is for each one of us willing to repent and believe.----------------Related Resource available from Mike Gendron and Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries:The Greatest News Ever Told About the Greatest Gift Ever Given tract

The Bible is one of the oldest books in the world and it literally details a Festival, a Holiday or Holy Day, Christmas Day in the Bible. Proclaiming to us NOT to Celebrate this Holiday: 'This is what the Lord says: “Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens, though the nations are terrified by them. For the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter…. Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good.” ' Jeremiah 10:2-5 The scripture starts by saying DO NOT LEARN THE WAYS OF THE NATIONS. The King James Version says of the Heathens. This is not a Holiday sanction by God. It is actually a SIN to Celebrate this Holiday What is SIN? 'Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. ' 1 John 3:4 “If anyone sins and does what is forbidden in any of the Lord's commands, ” Leviticus 5:17 Translation "Sin" is transgressing, breaking, disobeying, not following, Gods laws Now the book of Jeremiah is not apart of Gods Laws, the Laws of Moses given to us, commanded for us to follow. However, the scripture in Jeremiah states “DO NOT LEARN THE WAYS OF THE NATIONS.” Then it proceeds to tell us about Christmas, cutting down a tree, decking it with silver and Gold, shaping it and celebrating it, is the the ways of the Nations. “You must not follow the statutes of the nations I am driving out before you. Because they did all these things, I abhorred them.” Leviticus 20:23 This is Gods Laws, you must not Follow, the statutes, holidays, decrees of the Nations. Is Christmas a Statute, is Christmas a Law of the Nations? Yes, it is literally a Federal Law, a Federal Holiday, a National Statute and Gods Laws forbids you from celebrating it. Therefore celebrating this Holiday you are literally SINNING IF YOU CHOSE to participate in this pagan festival. Yet, you can celebrate Hanukkah:

Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar has the distinction of being the one-and-only living Sant Mat Master contemporary with Tulsi Sahib that Tulsi mentioned in his writings. Therefore, Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras most likely was affiliated with and initiated by Dariya Sahib or one of Dariya's spiritual successors. Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras, India was born in 1763 and passed on in 1843. He would have been in his teens when Sant Dariya Sahib was still alive -- old enough to have perhaps received initiation from Dariya Sahib or one of his representatives. Sant Dariya was a towering figure occupying some of that space in history between the time of Kabir and that of Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras. Sant Dariya passed on when Tulsi was around seventeen years of age. Dariya Sahib appointed several Saints to be his spiritual successors: Fakkar Das, Basti Das, Sant Tika Das, and, Sant Guna Das, also contemporaries with Tulsi Sahib, who likely spent some time in Bihar. Bihar was, and remains, home-base of the Satsang of Sant Dariya Sahib.    Sant Dariya Sahib on the Path of Sant Mat During This Kali Yuga Age   "Sat Purush is the living Lord, and His own son serves as the ladder. That ladder is continued through me, says Dariya. Fakkar Das, Basti Das, and Guna Das are the ladders proceeding from me. Whomsoever they appoint as their successors would also be known as ladders. Thus will my line of succession continue... Those souls who remain in obedience to these successors, shall cross the Ocean of the world.   "How long will this line of succession continue? Kindly relate it to us in your own words, asks Fakkar Das. 'Listen mindfully, 0 Fakkar Das, I explain this to you, says Dariya:   "'As long as the discipline of the Sound Current is preserved unadulterated, The line of succession will truly continue. But when it is mixed with outer rituals and display of external garbs, My Sound Current will part company. My Divine essence will depart, And the souls will go into the mouth of Kal. I shall then come to this world, And shall proclaim the teaching of the Sound Current again. Proclaiming the teaching, I shall found the line of succession [again]. And emancipating the souls, I shall take them to my Abode. For aeons I have been coming, And imparting the teaching of the true Sound Current.'"   -- Hymn of Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar   In Divine Love, Light, and Sound, At the Feet of the Masters, James Bean Sant Mat Satsang Podcasts Spiritual Awakening Radio https://www.SpiritualAwakeningRadio.com
