This week's message from Pastor J.D. and Pastor Bryan will help us cultivate a deeper understanding from John 4 of the concept of reconciliation—something that our world desperately needs. As the body of Christ, what we have in common is profound and beautiful, and ought to propel us toward unity. When we recognize this and take time to honor the humanity of those around us, we will be in a much better position to achieve ethnic unity. Preached at Summit Church in Raleigh, NC on 5/21/23
Introduction: Welcome to Five & Thrive: a weekly podcast highlighting the Southeast's most interesting news, entrepreneurs, and information of the week, all under 5 minutes. My name is Jon Birdsong and I'm with Atlanta Ventures. Companies Worth Applying To: There are several companies looking for SDR's including Greenzie, AdPipe, and Copient Health. If you or any of your network know a talented recent graduate looking to break into sales, I cannot recommend these options enough. SDR's are needed across many companies and these three are ones I know that will cultivate them into a valuable, qualified, and efficient sales professional. Event of the Week: Last week I was on the Friday Nooner with Pete, Jackie, and Joe of GrepBeat and through our wonderful conversation, was reminded that Grep-a-palooza is coming up on June 1st. It is being held in Raleigh and has a great set of topics and discussion points. We put the link to the entire agenda in the show notes. Company Coming Up: I came across a unique and fast growing company out of Decatur this week called Volanto. Founded in 2014,. Volantio frees airlines from the constraints of fixed capacity and they do this through a dynamic platform that moves select customers on popular services to alternate off-peak choices post-booking (with compensation). This is fully automated self-service process which allows airlines to secure more prime capacity, improved guest satisfaction, all while significantly improving their bottom line. Volantio's customers include 15+ airlines globally.. Volantio was founded by Azim Barodawala and Fenn Bailey and they just raised their Series A last September which includes customer, Alaska Airlines. Impressive progress. LinkedIn Post of the Week: I follow several thought leaders whether it's on LInkedIn or Twitter and every now and then one post just blows me away with its simplicity and timeliness and that happened with a recent post from Seth Radman. Seth is the CTO of Infinite Giving and has built dozens and dozens of products and one of his most recent posts just struck such a wonderful chord was around MVP's and pushing out a product. He writes: “If your MVP doesn't immediately drive word of mouth growth, improving the product won't help. Adding more features to something that didn't get people excited on Day 1 won't make it better.” The simplicity in this message makes it resonate so well. If future customers in your market are not getting excited about the value prop of your product, it will never matter that the degree of it's robustness or functionality. At Atlanta Ventures, we call this authentic demand and it is required for a market – even if it is initially a niche market – to build something successful. Great thought leadership Seth and keep creating. Platform Announcement of the Week: FlockSafety, which helped secure a dangerous shooter in Atlanta two weeks ago, announced a major product and really platform evolution in the business. Their 4 major products which includes their license plate reader (LPR), now incorporate the Flock Safety Raven product, their FlockOS product and the FlockSafety Condor. This mix of software around audio, video, and streaming services makes up for their full suite of services to fight crime in communities and I can tell you, as my kid's school was locked down two weeks ago, I'm very glad these advancements are being made. Flock Safety currently serves 3,000 communities across the U.S. The company's devices and software provide the evidence for police to solve about 7% of reported crime in the U.S. Raise a Glass: This week, Eskuad out of the Atlanta Tech Village raised $1.6M led by Outlander VC. Eskuad is a mobile-first data platform built specifically for field operations. You don't even need wireless access. Their products help you build forms, enter data, manage tasks and teams, with world-class offline function. Customers are saving 20% in operational costs and getting reports delivered 20x faster. Congrats to Eskuad on the round and the future ahead. Annnnnd that's five minutes!

Check it out below: Dedee Boring(00:00:00) - I started a networking group here in Austin. It was supposed to be women in multi-family Austin. Um, but then, and the reason it was I started going to these different, um, events and noticing that maybe there would be one woman on a panel and maybe one speaker, but for the most part it was 90% men, 10% women. And then looking out in the crowd thinking, what did they just not come today? Or where, where are girls at? Um, and so I just thought, well, maybe I know that there's some really great women out there. Let's start this little networking group and see what we get. Welcome Intro (00:00:35) - To the How to Scale commercial real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson (00:00:48) - Dedee Boring is a self-storage and multi-family investor, and she's dedicated to building wealth through strategic investments. Deedee is also the founder of the Women and Multifamily Association connecting women in the industry. Deedee, welcome to the show. Dedee Boring(00:01:02) - Thank you for having me. I appreciate being here. Sam Wilson (00:01:04) - Absolutely. The pleasure is mine. Deedee, there are three questions I ask every guest who comes in the show in 90 seconds or less. Can you tell me where did you start? Were you now, and how did you get there? Dedee Boring(00:01:13) - Well, we've had a family business for 18 years. Um, my husband and I have worked together for that long. It's been a fun time. Um, in 2020 we sold everything we had in Midland and moved to Austin and took our business with us. Um, our children were less than excited about joining in the family business, which was advertising. So we looked for something that we would all enjoy. So, and we decided real estate was where we were gonna be. Um, we pretty much got our butts kicked in 2022. Uh, we had three deals that the interest rates just tanked and multi-family. Um, and so we fought violently for those, but it didn't, it just didn't work out. Um, and so we've decided to pivot to storage and we have partnered with, uh, some really great people, pinnacle storage properties and impacts capital. And we have a storage, we just closed on a storage facility and we're looking to close on a couple more pretty soon. So we have a storage facility in Forney, Texas, which is right outside of Dallas. Um, and it's about 75,000 square feet. Okay. Sam Wilson (00:02:21) - Okay. Very cool. Well, let's hear, let's hear this kind of, um, not transition, but, but how this evolved. So you, in 2020 you said, Hey, we're moving to Austin. Uh, you're leaving the oil fields moving to, I guess, you know, what's, what's Austin now? The tech city I guess, if you will. I don't know what Austin is. Yeah, yeah. There's Dedee Boring(00:02:38) - Austin's Hill country. It's beautiful. And w where we were living is just not very pretty. Right. And, uh, my, all of our kids graduated from high school. Our youngest one was going to school and we said, you know what? We've done our time in Midland, Texas and we're gonna go to someplace pretty and it's very pretty here. So we decided that's what we're gonna do. So while everybody else was un under quarantine, we were moving Sam Wilson (00:03:02) - . Yeah. Well there's a lot of people doing that in quarantine, uh, as well seeking, seeking a greener pasture elsewhere. That's really cool. You decided to get into real estate. What were some of the things that you feel like you did right? And then maybe we can talk a little bit about 2022 in your terms, uh, kicked your butt. So what, what were some, some things you feel like you did well there? Learning and then getting involved in commercial real estate? Dedee Boring(00:03:26) - I think we did well by getting into a mentorship program where we had people, um, encouraging us and teaching us the business. I think, um, we have, we were, we're very good at underwriting properties. We have a template that we've gotten very good at. We, we underwrote the heck out of a lot of properties before we ever put a L o I on anything, just to make sure that we knew what we were doing. So I, I think we evaluated the market as much as we could. Um, and we tried to pick partners. We thought we were, well maybe that's not something we did well, but, um, we, we thought we, we think we have networked. I, I think our, we are as a family are, we are really good at networking and getting out there and not being shy. Um, and just getting our name out. So networking, you know, the, the cliche your net worth is, your network is your net worth. So Yeah, Sam Wilson (00:04:21) - Absolutely. Absolutely. So you guys said, Hey, we're going long there in multi-family and then yeah, 2022 happened. What did that mean to you? Dedee Boring(00:04:30) - Ooh, so we got three off market deals in a row. Um, we picked some partners that we felt were pretty solid. Um, and basically we did an l o I in May and then June interest rates start going up and we had a lender pull out and then we had a whale investor pullout. And so it was just a combination of a whole bunch of things and, you know, we've been fighting, we fought valiantly for it, um, to see if we could do it, but it just, in the long run, it just didn't work out for our investors. So we pulled, um, it was better for us to lose that money, which was a lot to lose that money and, um, as painful as it was and learn those lessons. Um, and you know, the lessons learned were make sure you really know your partners. Dedee Boring(00:05:17) - I mean you're, this is a marriage for five years and make sure that they're gonna, if things go bad, that they're gonna stay. Um, cuz we learned that that's not always the case. So yeah, 2022 happened and then, you know, we had thought about being in storage for a long time and just didn't, hadn't taken that plunge. And I believe it was a god thing. I got a great email sent of a property sent to me and uh, you know, and multi-family, a 14 million project is not a big project, but in storage, that's a really big project. Um, so, um, you know, I didn't really, because multi-family was the only thing I really knew. I didn't get surprised by the price. And so I've had this whole team built up and um, we went after it and it was a, you know, owner financing great leverage, great interest rate. So it was kind of a dream that's, it was great. Sam Wilson (00:06:09) - . That's awesome. And that, was that a deal that you uncovered? Dedee Boring(00:06:13) - Yeah, um, just through my network. So again, network, network, always stay in front of people, always. You know, it's everybody's busy. So it's not even a personal thing If an, if a broker doesn't remember who you are or remember to send you that off market deal, it's top of mind and just, I think a lot of people find that it's personal and they haven't felt that connection and they probably have, it's just a matter of the, you know, the squeaky wheel thing, just always keeping in front of people. Yeah. And making sure you're heard. Sam Wilson (00:06:43) - Absolutely. It's funny, uh, you know, not funny cause there's nothing funny about this, uh, your experience there of losing your earnest money. I mean, uh, it's not a, it's not one that, um, is uncommon unfortunately, but I think there's, there's, there's some things there, some things there to learn. And I've always said that the last 10 years have really covered up a lot of potential mismatches in partnerships. They've covered up a lot of, I mean, gosh, the last decade almost, not exclusively, but you could throw a dart at a board, pick a multifamily property and you probably would've made money. And I've said, it's covered up a lot of those kind of mistakes and or things that, that could be mistakes. And I said, I keep saying this, I think that the tougher the times get, the more we're gonna see those kind of cracks in the foundation and or poorly formed general partnerships, all of those things. Sam Wilson (00:07:34) - What are, what are some, and, and we, and I say this to our investors and uh, you know, to everybody else, which is the, the, the, the thing you should be evaluating is the team, like the oh yeah, the deal is the bottom, maybe 10% of the whole, the whole shoot and match it's team market. Then the deal and the deal is only 10% maybe of that equation. So tell me, when it comes to the team, you learned some lessons the hard way the first time on the team. What did you d do differently when you started picking your storage partners? Dedee Boring(00:08:02) - So I keep saying network, network, network. I had a fabulous conversation about minions, um, with a man at a networking event for a very long time. Um, and the only thing I heard besides minions was that he was in storage, uh, that he had invested passively in storage. He wasn't even a, an active investor. Um, so when we got the deal, uh, obviously the per the seller who was also the bank on that deal wanted to know that the team that is coming in to take this deal over had experience and we did not have that. So I reached out to my network and I remembered that conversation of sitting there going, why am I here listening to this conversation? And um, and here we are and man, that guy, he's, he hooked me up. So he, we had built some trust and he felt like I was somebody he wanted to pass on to his network. Dedee Boring(00:08:53) - And he connected me with the, the guys at Pinnacle Storage Properties, um, through a series of meetings and, you know, the evaluating the property and, and we have decided that that's something that we wanna continue doing after this project. Uh, but we've worked on it to the point where we've had meetings where we come in and say, okay, this went well, this didn't go well, how could we do better in the future? And just that willingness to be able to do that and to want to do that is something that we haven't necessarily had in previous relationships. So, um, we, that was very important to us this time around that we do that. Um, I did have a really great mentor that I, her name is Kim Winland with Quatro Capital. I don't know if you've ever met her. Um, and she, well, she, right out of the gate, she's like, network as much as you can get to know all these people, it's a small world in the multi-family space, in the storage space that's even smaller. Dedee Boring(00:09:53) - Just get to know all these people. You'll figure it out who's gonna, who you wanna do business with and who you don't. And she couldn't have been more. Right. Couldn't have been. I mean, so yeah, so now I'm just trying to help others, um, with their women's group, , trying to help others understand that network. I got it. Uh, Kim Winland paid it forward for me by mentoring one-on-one for free. She didn't have to do that. Um, and so I started a networking group here in Austin. It was supposed to be women in multi-family Austin. Um, but then in the reason it was I started going to these different, um, events and noticing that maybe there would be one woman on a panel and maybe one speaker, but for the most part it was 90% men, 10% women. And then looking out in the crowd thinking where did they just not come today or where, where are girls at? Dedee Boring(00:10:48) - Um, and so I just thought, well maybe I know that there's some really great women out there. Let's start this little networking group and see what we get. Um, I had never met a female broker here I had, so, and I don't know that there is one like a Marcus Millichap, j Lll woman broker here in Austin. Um, so I looked at a property in Houston and there was this beautiful woman that's a broker there who's a unicorn cuz you know how many women brokers are. So she was kind enough to say that they would love to host a win in Houston. And then from there it just grew. So it, and now we're in Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Denver, and we start Seattle and Raleigh next month. Sam Wilson (00:11:29) - Whoa. Whoa. That's, that's a really cool story I think for anybody looking to start a meetup group. I mean, there, there, there had, and, and you, you know, your family business of marketing and advertising and cert certain has played a role in helping you get that launched. But I mean, that's gotta be intimidating, especially coming off the heels of, you know, getting your teeth kicked in in 2022. Like it was, was there any kind of self-doubt that was like, who am I to start this? And then if so, how did you overcome it? Dedee Boring(00:12:00) - So I think women have a, they struggle, especially more than possibly men do with imposter syndrome, so Of course. Um, yeah, and I, I think that, I mean, I heard something somewhere that men need to only qualify for like 60% of a job and they'll apply for it where women want a hundred percent of the qualifications before they'll apply for it. Um, so of there is, I've never gone into this network where I was the guru or the the person that knows it all. I have always gone into it as, hey, we're here together, let's skip people that know more than we do to come in and speak and learn altogether. Yeah. And through that we're building a foundation of trust, which is what our five core values are. Our trust, identity, belonging, purpose, and thin competency. So instead of coming in and saying, I have all these storage units and I do this, and then you should trust me because I have that, which I do feel like some networks do, they, you know, they build it on their competency, which is great, uh, for them. Dedee Boring(00:12:57) - But we're, we're gonna go with help trust, uh, and build this group of women that we can all trust to collaborate with and network with. And, and because we just know that together we can do more. That's our slogan. Um, and and that's really, women love to do work together and build teams and that's just kinda how we are. So it's exactly what's happened. Um, what was a surprise from this group is after going to these towns, um, Austin's very savvy investors. Uh, they're lots of short-term rentals, lots of, um, single family flips. Austin is a group of women that really have been investing for a long time. So, but I would, as I ventured out even to Dallas and to Houston, um, I realized that there's a lot of women that don't know that how to invest or they've been, they've had generational limitations put on them. Dedee Boring(00:13:45) - Um, generational limitations being that, and you're from the south, um, that the man is the head of the household, that they control the money that, um, you know, and so I've heard story after story of women who have gotten divorced and they had nothing, no credit in their name, no, didn't, don't have a bank account. And they're starting from scratch. And so they've made a big first step of getting to the door and coming into the room to hang out with other investors and learn. But, um, that's been a, a side bonus to win is that component of empowering women to even remotely think about real estate investing. Sam Wilson (00:14:22) - That's really cool. I I love that. What were some actionable steps you took to get that launched? I mean, it's one thing to dream that up. I mean, it sound like you put a lot of thought into it, everything from your core values to what your slogan is, but I mean, finding that investor, not investor, let me rephrase that. Finding that particular avatar of person that would be a great candidate for your groups. How do you do that? Dedee Boring(00:14:50) - Well, I, I mean basically I, okay, so I used to work in children's ministry for nine years. Okay. And so, um, I used a lot of my skills from that and what I learned from there. Uh, so basically if I came up to you and I said, I need you to hang out with sixth grade boys for and teach them Jesus, teach 'em Sunday school, you would probably go , I don't think I can do that. Right? But if I said, I want you to, I feel that you're well abled and equipped to do that and I would love for you to join us and, and just see if you like it, just see if this is something you wanna do, then all of a sudden that's a lot easier, right? That's a lot easier for you to even remotely think about that possibility. So we really, we don't need these people to come to our group. We want them to, we want them to join us, we want to help them move forward. We want to grow them. So if it's, it's less of a plea of please come to my meeting, I'm more of, we really want you to come, we really want you to belong here. Sam Wilson (00:15:47) - Right, right. No, and that makes a lot of sense. But I guess even even finding those people that aren't already part of your natural network, uh, it would seem like it's not a, not a heavy lift, but, and I'm sure it, it gets to a point where it snowballs and it's much easier where people are telling people and okay, now the groups are growing more organically, but in the beginning there has to be some sort of critical mass, I would imagine. Yeah. Hey, there's five of us. There's 10 of us that are gonna get together on a regular cadence and bring somebody in that we can learn from. Was that the way it worked or did you go about it differently? Dedee Boring(00:16:18) - Absolutely. Yeah, absolutely. So we had a group of ladies in Austin that were our, I call 'em our OGs. And they, um, basically I said to them, no pressure. I would love for you to be a part of a board, a wink board to help get this started. Um, and we sat one day on one Saturday in January, we sat in my living room and we talked about all the possibilities, everything from an education program to conferences, what did we see? What was the big picture? I tend to be a small picture thinker, like my husband's a big picture thinker and we, that's how we work so well, is that I think about the next step where he thinks about this giants and, um, I have a lot of big picture thinkers as most real estate investors I feel like are, um, big picture thinkers. Dedee Boring(00:17:03) - So they, you know, they want more, they, all of us have been in different networks and paid for mentorship programs. All of, we've all gained knowledge from them, not to bash anybody. Um, but we also have seen where maybe things could be different or better. Yeah. Um, or, or how would we like to see it? Um, so we have a lot of great ideas. We just got off of a, another planning session. Um, but, uh, I mean Raleigh is because of a network that I, my mentorship program that I bought into, I had met two ladies through that, that network. Um, and Seattle's the same. So basically it's leveraging other people's network is how we're growing, right? So some people are in a network that's based out of Dallas and I'm in one that's based out of Florida. So, um, I have our, my network and core people are, is just this much. And then there's all these people that have the Dallas net network, they can go through theirs. And, um, so basically leveraging everybody's network in that board that we have is how we're, how that's working. Got Sam Wilson (00:18:03) - It. No, that make, that's really cool. I love that. And those are, those are, um, I'm probably more your big picture. I often wonder like the details, like how did somebody, and thanks for sharing that because I wonder that like how do you get from not critical mass to now, you know, opening up multiple chapters in multiple cities. And that was really super helpful there. We've got just a few minutes left here and I want to kind of circle back to our conversation on self-storage. This was a, this was something I thought of and and didn't get a chance to ask you. It's one, it's one thing to bet a sponsor, right? And to figure out, think there's enough sponsor checklist, how to beta sponsor checklist, things like that, which are very, very helpful. Um, but it's another thing for a sponsor to vet you. When that sponsor comes to you and you say, cuz and I, and I'm at, at this juncture now where, you know, people are coming to me saying, Hey, we'd love to capital raise for your next fund. Here's how this works. And I've not, I've always been that partner that's partnered with the sponsor and now I'm doing it in reverse. I'm curious, what were some of the things that the sponsor did to get to know you and make sure that you were a good fit for what it was that they were doing? Dedee Boring(00:19:11) - These guys, um, pinnacle, I don't know how to describe them more than they're just some good old Texas boys and they're salt of the earth people. Um, so for them it was just being very transparent and honest. So I, I think if I had come in and said, we're we're the best and we want a huge part of the deal and, you know, and I couldn't really back that up with my storage experience, could I, um, so being able to be very transparent on our process, um, and what we're trying to gain from it. And uh, and all the way through, uh, you know, we've have, we had some issues and hiccups of, of course, so, um, I'm the person that really talks back and forth with all of the partners in the deals. So, um, you know, two of 'em are kind of, um, real abrupt in how they communicate and one is very passive and likes to kind of dance around the subject before. Dedee Boring(00:20:06) - And so I'm the mediator that manages those communications. Um, and that, I think that's probably one of my skillsets for, for that. Um, but really it was a matter of can you handle that? Can you handle their personality and could they, cuz they could handle mine cuz I'm fairly easygoing, but could they handle, could we work with them? Do I know what it takes to get along with them and do they know what it takes to get along with me? And so it doesn't take much try to feel like I'm pretty easygoing, but I I think that there's a lot of people that are harder to get along with and these guys have a system and we respected that and we did not try to, um, probably get more than we should have gotten out of the gate, uh, because we didn't, we're learning from them. So I, we respect their authority in the space and I think that's really important to really respect that authority in the space. Sam Wilson (00:20:56) - Yeah, that's, uh, that's, that's a great, uh, absolutely great point. Deedee, this has been a lot of fun. Thank you for taking the time to come on the show today. Certainly learned a lot from you. Thank you for also taking the time just to share your kind of battle scars if you will here No problem. From launching into the commercial real estate space. It's not for the faint of heart and clearly you are not faint of heart cuz you're still doing it and uh, still doing it. Still doing it. You forged your own path. You've given us great ideas on how to start a networking and meetup group. Kind of some of the things it takes to get that you give, give us kind of real, real practical steps on how to get those, uh, started and launched as well. So again, thank you for coming on the show today. I do appreciate it If our listeners wanna get in touch with you. Yeah, absolutely. If our listeners wanna get in touch with you and learn more about you, what is the best way to do that? Dedee Boring(00:21:40) - Well, you can go to boring and co.com. Um, our last name really is boring. Um, and you can schedule a meeting with me anytime. So I don't know if I have any of my information up on the screen or with you, but boring and co.com has all of that Sam Wilson (00:21:55) - Boring and co.com. We'll make sure to put that right there in the show notes. Deedee, thank you again for coming on. I do appreciate it. Dedee Boring(00:22:01) - All right, thanks so much.

What do you do with a future city park site that currently sits kind of as an empty parking lot? Enloe student Adrian Mangano had an idea: why not make it a skate park?And that idea became Skate Raleigh, a venture to build a temporary skate park between Capital Boulevard and West Street on the future site of Smoky Hollow Park. The area has long been a hang out for skaters, in part because of the Endless Grind skate shop that's operated nearby on Peace Street since 1986. Adrian tells us how the idea came about, how it became a reality who some of the supporters are and more.
Brock really believes Jamal Adams should be attending OTAs because of who he is to the team and how much is expected of him with his contract.

While we live in a time of much racial division and strife, we shouldn't forget that Jesus did too. In this week's message, Pastor Bryan invites us to reflect on a well-known story in John 4 where Jesus' encounter with a Samaritan woman left her forever changed—and was a powerful display of what it looks like to take the gospel across ethnic lines. Ultimately, only by aligning ourselves with Jesus' mission will we have any hope of accomplishing true ethnic unity. Message originally given at the Summit Church in Raleigh, NC on 5/15/23.

The Hurricanes now lead the best-of-7 series 3 games to 1 with Game 5 coming Thursday in Raleigh. Jack Hughes scored early in the 1st period to give the Devils an early lead. And that lead held up until 17:40 of the frame when Martin Necas' first of the game leveled the score. Necas would score before the 8-minute mark of the 2nd to tie give the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead and from that point the floodgates opened. Brett Pesce, Jesper Fast and Brent Burns all scored, with the 5 goals coming in a 5:20 span of the period. And, when Jordan Martinook ripped one off the crossbar and in with 24 seconds left in the 2nd the Canes had a 6-1 lead. Frederik Andersen made 21 saves in the win, his 4th so far in the postseason.

I'm going to spend an hour just making fun of Scott Galloway with her. Scot: [4:25] Nice yeah that's good the dog dog is off the porch whoo. Jason: [4:30] Exactly I was thinking about like maybe bring a mask I've already you know I have audio collection of a lot of my favorite Scott Galloway predictions meaning which didn't come true. Scot: [4:43] Macy's Woodberry Amazon and apparel. Jason: [4:47] But I feel like this is. Scot: [4:48] Amazon to be Roadkill. Jason: [4:50] Like Freaky Friday like so like Cara is this like super famous interviewer and I am interviewing her and we're doing it at Tara know where she started code conference so it's very topsy-turvy. Scot: [5:03] Yeah yeah just bring red tears without her trademark thing. Jason: [5:07] I assume she just travels with one of her own yeah that Herman Miller red chair yeah. Scot: [5:09] BYO RC okay. Jason: [5:15] I actually think she's not with Vox anymore so I don't know you know she may be in withdrawn not she may have said said goodbye to the red chairs will have to ask her. Scot: [5:24] Look that's that's question number one. Jason: [5:26] Yeah but besides all of that we are just getting started on q1 earnings season and you know of course for most of our listeners one of the most important earnings calls happened last week. Scot: [5:39] Yeah it wouldn't be a Jason and Scot show if we didn't have some Amazon news. So on April 27th which was last Thursday when we're recording this Amazon had their earnings it was what Wall Street would call a clear beat meaning both top and the bottom line where a beat this is welcome news because Amazon's earnings have been kind of like not not mrs. but not amazing. [6:07] So revenues came in two percent above consensus which is a slight beat but what got Wall Street very excited was operating income came in 57 percent above and longtime listeners will know I usually cover the retail portion of Amazon and Jason covers the cloud or a WS part, we're going to mix it up because I read all the reports and what was most interesting right now in kind of the world of Internet stocks the whole world has been turned upside down by chat GPT which is put out by open AI Sam Altman startup who is partially owned and supported by Microsoft there and investor and the hole, infrastructure runs on Azure their cloud computing, platform this has been a huge win for Microsoft because it's enabled them to add a chat gbt like component to Bing. [7:02] And you know the buzz is that, search is dead a lot of people are even speculating maybe even apps will be dead you know maybe maybe you don't really need apps on a phone if you could just talk to your phone and say hey book me restaurant reservation as 6:30 at the one of these three restaurants why do you need a nap if an AI can go to that room so there's there's a lot of people in the Wall Street and Tech world are, I would say there's like this wall of worry around this new innovation and this is real so chat GPT was the fastest product to 100 million users what was it Jason like four weeks or something. [7:42] Like an egg yeah if you see a chart it's like this a vertical wall whereas like Facebook and some of those kinds of things were previous record holders for this and it took, you know years and so-so. Jason: [7:54] Two months to a billion or 4 months to a billion users. Scot: [7:58] Yeah so it's just this crazy adoption curve unlike anything we've ever seen before so you know there's, this was top of mind when this came out so the so while streets pretty obsessed with what's going on with the cloud also Amazon's Cloud division has been slowing their growth it was the you know the darling of the Amazon portfolio and now it's been slowing because as we head into this recessionary period, also another concern is we cover this a little bit last time but Silicon Valley Bank failed we've had all this kind of startup craziness and a lot of those startups use cloud computing and Amazon so, so that was what all eyes were on and you know what we saw was the growth did slow to 11 and a half percent which was less bad than what people were thinking so is kind of viewed as positive which is always one of these counter, Wall Street all about expectations not like the real absolute numbers but 11.5 percent growth is this is this part we've been covering this for for. [9:04] Years of this point five years and it's always growing north of 50% but this time it really slowed down and they're even projecting for next quarter or slow 2011 Amazon did Jesse did talk a lot about AI there they've talked about how they're going to do a lot of people the other problem with Chad gbt is it looks the prior to the prior a I think we all spend a lot of time with which was Alexa now feels wildly inferior because you're having these really robust conversations with chat gvt and Alexis can do like, yeah it's not really like at that level of conversational AI you can get some weather maybe play a song and a couple other little things add something it'll talk to you about do you want to reorder your dog food and yeah that's about it right so very, Barry and then you know that used to be cool and now in a world where we're chatty be teeing it feels inferior so Amazon like Google is a little bit on their heels from this and they basically came out and said we're going to do a lot around Alexa here and it will we're dedicated that being by far the best voice assistant, and we'll be adding chats ubt like capabilities but then for AWS they basically said look there's all these language models out there and we're going to be neutral will have all kinds of different flavors kind of thing so whatever you want we'll have. [10:30] And the one of the concerns is these large language models use a ton of gpus and those are expensive. Azure is adding a ton of workloads from this and their conference call they went so far as to say. It's like accelerated growth dramatically at Azure they're getting all these loads that they would have never seen before thanks to their relationship and, they're scaling up this gpus and so it kind of feels early and Aang's like maybe Microsoft has got like this. Bit of an advantage over both Google and they WS so, so you know it was interesting because I'm saying all that because what happened is they announced their up a little bit that day and then they announced and they were down and they've been kind of sideways since then so and what was clear be quarter with AWS not as bad as you would think it would be you had the numbers would say oh the stock should go up 5 to 10% but they didn't because I don't think everyone really liked, body language around you know what's going on chat gbt and Amazon's response. [11:40] So that was a that was a long part but that was I thought it was kind of interesting. The whole world and like the last yeah six months has been turned upside down by this and it's always an option or that always gets my attention because this is where unique opportunities are created for disruption and all kinds of what happens is when my favorite books is the innovators dilemma when something new like this comes along, people that were previously the leaders have a really hard time adapting to it because they get baked into their business model so for example to pick on Google it's very hard for them to offer a chat interface on the core Google search because, every pixel of core Google search is like so highly optimized and them hitting their numbers relies on that that real estate. [12:28] Basically not changing that to change that real estate and experiment with something that is expensive and not monetized is. Almost impossible you know it's it will certainly make them lose mountains of Revenue and even worse on ibadah, so it's really kind of fascinating to Think Through the strategy here of what's everyone going to do and how do they adapt to this new world and to some extent Amazon not as bad as Google I would argue but that Amazon is a little bit of a in a pickle. Um it got even so bad also around the same time Jeff Bezos was at Coachella and he was just out there dancing and wearing this kind of fun butterfly shirt and everyone's kind of like you know it almost felt like fiddling while Rome burned so a lot of people are like and then you know so Disney's CEO has come back and a lot of people are projecting that maybe we'll see a day where like a Larry Page comes back to Google and a Bezos comes back to Amazon to it's going to be interesting to see what happens this next next three to six months are gonna be really fun to watch in the world of large trillion-dollar internet companies to see what's going down. Jason: [13:39] Oh for sure and I keep saying this but we're going to have to do another. Deep dive on AI and chechi because there are so many it's changing so, fast and there's this whole like shift from keywords to prompts and you know like all of you know Google's intrinsic strengths are suddenly becoming weaknesses there's this interesting battle, um between like these AI capabilities as destinations versus these AI capabilities as. Sort of infrastructure that that you add to any destination right and so you know the interesting thing about Chad gbt you can license the. The GPT for engine and build it in your own apps or your own website but 1.2 billion consumers a month, are going to chat. Open a i.com so that's now a destination on the web that's bigger than Bing. [14:40] Like move more people last month went to their website opening eyes website then went to Bing and that's a, Game Changer I get it's feels like a huge missed opportunity side note that there's not ads on that website yet I'm sure I'm sure that that that is coming in Italy but so there are all these like super interesting changes. I kind of feel like even if all that wasn't playing out like just the the fact that AWS is decelerating a little bit. [15:10] Would be the news from this earning thing and it's what everyone's talking about and it's almost a shame because it's kind of masking what otherwise like is a pretty remarkable quarter compared to like what most of their peers are likely to do. Scot: [15:25] Yeah yeah walk us through some of the highlights that you saw in the non aw site. Jason: [15:30] Well so the first thing if you look at North American gmv it grew 13% in q1 so that that is a deceleration from, their Q4 growth but like to put that in comparison. Us retail sales grew four percent in the first quarter so so you know this is kind of back to pre-pandemic levels where Amazon's growing. Despite being you know the largest or second largest retailer in the US depending on how you count growing quite a bit of water faster than the industry, you don't normally we would we compare Amazon's growth to all retailers growth but also to all of e-commerce has growth, so the US Department of Commerce comes out with their Q2 growth numbers in a couple weeks so May 18th I think if you want to mark your calendars will do a show and talk about that but. Just kind of interpreting the data and extrapolating. [16:31] U.s. e-commerce and q1's likely to grow about 10% which is kind of a recovery for e-commerce but still, that means Amazon the largest e-commerce player out there is growing faster than the industry as a whole which is. You know typical for Amazon but you know not very typical in the rest of the world so the retail story was, was really strong and it was driven almost exclusively by your favorite part of the retail Echo System the marketplace right it was almost all. [17:00] 3p sales which I want to say grew 16 percent. Or fifteen percent for the quarter so so 3p continues to be a super important part, and you know I always like to talk about the ad business ads were up 21% which is a, a deceleration of the ads business as well just like AWS but a couple interesting things, there's a ton of headwinds, for traditional dip digital ads right now as the economy is getting a little more challenging you know a lot of brands are cutting back on their spinned because the privacy issues they're cutting back on a lot of the traditional digital channels, um so you look at like metas ad business in q1 it grew three percent Google's ad business grew to percent. [17:55] Pinterest was the leader of those kind of traditional platforms their ad business grew five percent, and Amazon which is has a bigger ad business than Pinterest Amazon grew 21% so that that growth you know continues to be remarkable, um I did a quick back of the napkin estimate and I, I know AWS generated about 5 billion dollars in earn income for the quarter the ad unit probably generated 7.1 billion dollars in earning come for the quarter so quite a bit more, profit to the bottom line coming from that ad business then coming from from AWS, and then you know Amazon you know as they always do they kind of pepper and some favorable stats so they talked about how. They they had 26 million customers for same-day delivery in q1 which is fifty percent growth year over year so you know you. You kind of you've seen a lot of other retailers that as the economy has gotten kind of tough they've kind of. [18:58] Ratcheted back their service level a little bit like you're seeing a lot of people starting to charge more for returns you're starting to see delivery promises get stretched out a little bit and you know Amazon is kind of. Adjusting their returns policy as well but like they're they're all in on that fast same day delivery. And it seems like consumers are continuing to embrace that. Um there's this kind of big strategic shift that they talked about Scott that I know you've been falling which is kind of the shift from a national fulfillment model to a regional fulfillment model. And this is all about getting more efficiency so the idea is you know in the old model you placed an order and you know they ship from whatever Warehouse fulfillment center had the goods in stock so often that. Are shipping things from pretty far away, and mold you know in a you know your your multicart order could have Goods coming from a lot of different fulfillment centers and you know this quarter the focus is really on redesigning the whole fulfillment center to optimize. [20:06] How many trips they have to make to your house and how many, how much of the goods can all come from the same fulfillment center so there's a laser focus on kind of getting the inventory in each fulfillment center right for the market that it's serving, um and the you know in their investor call the CFO was talking about how like they're starting to they're already starting to unlock. Um significant improvements in their operating margins as a result of cutting down on the amount of trips in order to serve the same amount of gmv and they think there's a lot of Headroom to continue improving math if you've been following that kind of, Regional shift it almost feels like the Reinventing the you know kind of against innovators dilemma they're Reinventing their whole fulfillment model despite the fact that they have the. The world's largest fulfillment model. Scot: [21:00] Yeah yeah I think this is really interesting and in some ways maybe the go Puffs the world kind of showed him how to do this ironically enough and you know and this surge of same-day delivery I think they're having. I think you know in the early days the same day delivery I remember Sebastian going ham he was SVP saying yes he was at our conference and he said something like we just put out there to see and we were surprised by how many people use it and then you know they had data that indicated this is like five years ago that it was addictive because you. [21:37] We have forget which of us going this is your zero friction addiction so once you have one of these low-friction experiences you're like yeah yeah you know of course I would like it yeah, I'm running this morning all like it the same day but that's making them for deploying a lot more of the product to be able to satisfy that demand but they have the data to do it the key is it's a you know there's, there's this you know something like 300 million skus out there in the cloud that you can buy a small portion of those percentage-wise large sales wise is in the network of FCS and then the system learned what to, put at the edge near you and that same day thing there's a set of skus and it's probably down to 10,000 at that point, that they know those are the most frequently Asked seemed a things it's going to be things like toilet replenishable toiletries, dog food for me all those types personal items Healthcare Beauty and you know it's not the it's not the Xbox or something that can kind of weight well I guess some of that could be but you know there's plenty of stuff people are happy to wait for so, that that edge Network allows them to Ford deploy 5 to 10,000 excuse and get them to you really fast. Jason: [22:56] Yeah and I think what's interesting is that it turns out that the. The those skews that are needed for same-day delivery in Raleigh are not the same as the skills that are needed in Chicago and AI is really helping them sort of optimize. Those fulfillment centers and the numbers are actually a little bigger than your you're saying there are now like 300,000 same day skus in the system and in some markets there they have over 100,000 skus available for same-day so it y you know there. [23:26] They're kind of expanding from the head in skews to you know at least the chunky middle scuze. On that same day delivery and it and it seems like that's continuing to work for them. I just think it's you know again a lot of people that had you know the huge infrastructure lead the Amazon had him fulfillment centers you know would. But I find it hard to disrupt that model and pivot to a new model and it seems like you know Tim zones credit they're they're not afraid to disrupt themselves and it feels like that's kind of what they're doing here. And it seems like it least pull narrowly it's working you know they're also. Over the covid time there have been some capacity constraints and they rolled out a lot of technology to help help third-party sellers better manage their own. Capacity and you know I'm hearing from third-party sellers that that is going better that they have you know are better able. [24:29] Predict the cost and the capacity that will be available for them and they're not getting as many unpleasant surprises as they as they kind of had had in the past of that that stuff is all interesting, I also think Amazon's big enough that they're they're you know kind of a. A good surrogate for for the actual consumer economies at this point and so is interesting you know they talked about the Americans can consumer and you know the North America was where a lot of Amazon's growth was. Um They they had a statement that they're continuing to see the US consumer is being conscious that she's definitely moderated her spending on discretionary categories, she's trading down to more value oriented eizan's. [25:16] You know there continues to be healthy demand for Staples and you know I think we heard similar things from other big retailers like Wal-Mart and Target so that kind of felt in line but what was interesting was Europe. The growth is much slower but it was a significantly higher beat versus expectations than North America was and they had kind of an interesting editorial on Europe they said that, European demand while cautious came in better than expected, we see customer confidence increasing with inflation tickling down in the EU and that's kind of at odds with a bunch of other retailers that that are competing in Europe that are still you know kind of talking about, the consumer Demand Being really repressed in Europe and the European consumer really struggling due to even higher inflation then then what consumers are experiencing here in North America so, um it either sounds like Amazon's having a better go of it than a lot of other retailers in Europe, or Amazon is being the first one to sort of see the economy turning a little more favorable in Europe so. I kind of found that interesting. [26:42] Yeah well again you know the. Historically like Europe is smaller than North America for Amazon but it you know because it's smaller it was growing faster but you know there have been more. Challenges supply chain disruptions there's more uncertainty in a lot of the European economies and so you know it's like for global companies I'm particularly brands that do business everywhere. Um that European softness has been a challenge the one outlier of all that is luxury so it does feel. Like kind of a bifurcated economy that like luxury can you know is actually kind of bounce back in Europe and is continuing to do pretty pretty well worldwide while. High inflation is hurting a lot more of the kind of staple Industries a lot more. Scot: [27:35] Having Survived the Great Recession of 08 and 09 at Chow buzzer the weird thing about the data was the luxury segment accelerated you have to have the the wealthy folks do find during economic downturns turns out. Jason: [27:50] Yeah this was a weird one in that like that's for that was for sure true where the demand was shifted in unusual ways because often you have a lot of. Really wealthy consumers are also tend to be really mobile consumer so you have, historical you'd have a lot of really wealthy people from China that would go to France and buy a lot of luxury goods and in covid of course nobody was going anywhere so there was this huge, spike in luxury goods in China so like the overall worldwide demand for luxury was very high but there were these weird mismatches where the demand was not coming from the markets that it typically came from and now it feels like it's. Reverting more it's starting to revert to more traditional. [28:37] So there was a another interesting earnings call this morning. Scot: [28:41] Yeah so Shopify came out with their earnings and they've had just kind of set the stage. In the during covid they were Off to the Races and they've had a really hard time in the last year kind of in that post covid era as they invested so much and then covid the e-commerce growth reverted to the mean as you've been, so good at pointing out and they thought it would just continue up into the right and so they did about a ten percent reduction in force I think is a year ago maybe a little longer, and so then this morning they came out and they beat Lowered Expectations to put this in perspective of their growth has slowed to 25% and they were consistently growing well north of 50% so they're they're definitely, this was good for a while there were kind of Contracting but now at least they're back to growth they are losing money but they should get back to profitability here in a quarter or two but the big surprise was you know if you recall they were going to take on Amazon and they started really building out some fulfillment and they bought a couple companies to do that and started building out this whole infrastructure called Shopify fulfillment Network or sfm. [30:00] So they announced on the call today that they're just basically abandoning that whole strategy and the assets they previously bought an aggregate for over two billion dollars they sold to a company called Flex port for a billion so that had to hurt so basically a billion dollar loss on the strategy and they basically said you know the future is AI and that's where we're going to put our effort, and then when they sell this unit there also some people go with that but they're also announced they're doing at 23% that would include some of those people it's not it's not entirely clear. [30:36] How many will be core Shopify versus the people leaving with the sfn I think it's. Relatively small you know I don't think that's happened was like this huge. People operation like you have an Amazon anyway so they're going to reduce headcount by 11,000 people 29k so from 11,000 29k, so about 23% reduction these things are always kind of. [31:06] Little tricky emotionally because you feel for those people that are losing their jobs and found out this morning that's going to be no fun, but then Wall Street loves a good reduction for us because that means more profits oh, the stock this is a huge win for the stock because Wall Street has hated hated hated this idea if you take this super high margin software business and you layer in a super low margin fulfillment business, so you know Wall Street this is part of the innovators dilemma, once you've baked your margins in at 85% or whatever you can't then go to Wall Street and say we're going to bring that down 15% 270 because we're going to be fulfillment and that's a, yeah 30% margin business your blend that in with our 85 you get us to 70 or whatever it is, so so Wall Street was very happy to see them abandoned us, it does raise the question one of the reasons they got in this is you and I talked a lot about Shopify versus Amazon and you know the same time. Amazon is raising the bar on e-commerce we just talked about this two same day, Shopify was going to arm the rebels so that they could at least keep up with two day now they're abandoning that you know there's gonna continue to be, yeah this could be a big moment in history where Shopify messes up and you know. [32:29] What's a I going to solve if you have this great product recommendation or something that doesn't show up for five days in Amazon eats the Shopify Merchants lunch because they just are better at Logistics so this is this is a big decision throwing in the towel and it's going to be interesting to see, if this is wise or not I obviously lean towards I don't think this is going to be a great in decision for him. Jason: [32:57] Yeah it is tricky. The you know I would also mention there's this so I you know scary service from Amazon looming on the Shopify Horizon that it's not clear Shopify his really declared what they want they're going to do with yet which is the. The by with prime service which is you know in in effect to use that really solid Amazon Fulfillment Network even when you sell stuff on Shopify. And so you know maybe they're they're dumping on the Shopify fulfillment Network stuff in there just gonna see the Fulfillment Amazon we'll have to see. Um I do I've decided to correct one thing you said like Shopify is huge on talking about e-commerce regress to the mean. That's actually not true right get when they talk about that they're talking about the ratio of e-commerce sales to retail sales and it's partly true for that. That you know we kind of went from 14 or 15 percent of all sales being online to 17 or 18 percent and we bounced back down to 15%. Um you know that that shape varied while we you know depending on the category so image digitally immature categories like Grocery and Automotive had kind of a permanent Spike whereas, like apparel you know had kind of a temporary bump. [34:23] In absolute dollars e-commerce is way bigger than before the pandemic e-commerce is 90% up from from 2019 and so when when they kind of use that. As an excuse for the layoffs I would say like don't buy it right like that. [34:41] There's a lot more demand for digital Goods than there were in 2019 and Shopify isn't laying people off because that demand has receded like throwing people off because they haven't perfectly figured out what the right business model is and from my standpoint. They're still a little dyslexic on who they're even trying to serve they still have all this language around you know serving the small Independent Business the mom-and-pop and arming the rebels and all that but like you know when you listen all the success stories in their earnings calls. It's it's Staples it's why it's it's you know it's it's bigger or midsize specialty retailers that are moving to the platform, it's not the rebels I, Kendall Jackson and Kendall Jenner and Staples are not the rebels and so I don't know like I think they like that that narrative but like I'm not sure they've come a perfectly aligned their product offering to the. The companies that are like driving the bulk of their gmv growth and when they you know do focus on the long tail Mom and Pops. It really makes that gmv number kind of office gated because there's so much churn over there right and they go or gmv went up 25%. Was that because like all your customers are thriving and they're all growing or is it because you just added way more companies that will have a nine-month mortality rate than you then you did the quarter before. [36:09] So I think it's like I definitely like there's a lot of strong, sort of advantages and and experiences still in the Shopify ecosystem and. Feel like shot pay is getting some traction the shop app has got a lot more traction than I originally predicted and now there are some legitimate. Marketplace features in there there's a lots of things going for them I certainly would not write them off but I do think. Like in the next couple of quarters we need to see some more clarity about like what they want to be and where their growth is really going to come. Scot: [36:46] Yeah yeah it's going to be we'll be tracking it closely on the show as we have them so it's going to be interesting to see I don't think either of us had this in our predictions though sadly. Jason: [36:57] Yeah no I mean I was definitely caught by I never thought this Acquisitions made sense but I certainly thought that you know they would hold on to him longer so I don't know I guess if you're an investor like. Like once you realize it was the wrong decision like there's probably something good about like cutting bait quickly instead of trying to. Drag it around drag it out longer just because you you don't want to own up to the mistake. So anyway that feels like a pretty good recap of the two big earnings there's a you know a bunch of the traditional retailers will be record reporting over the next four weeks and of course we'll have US Department of Commerce data, including q1 e-commerce. Later this month so lots of reasons to have another new show and I still do think we got to get that. That large language Model A I show on the on the books. Scot: [37:52] Yeah yeah we will we're through our vacation period and we should have some time to lay that down and Jason you've got a keynote tomorrow and you got some slides to work on buddy so we're going to make this a short one in the pantheon of Jason and Scot show lengthy episodes. Jason: [38:09] Yeah yeah we'll give it a few minutes back to our listeners and I will go write a keynote for tomorrow. Scot: [38:15] Awesome it's always good when you're up against deadlines so you're going to crush it. Jason: [38:20] I feel like the one thing I have going for me is the present the content will be very Timely. Scot: [38:26] Good yep fresh like. Jason: [38:30] Awesome Scott thinks every very much everyone for listening as always enjoyed the show we sure would love it if you jump on iTunes and give us that five star review and until next time happy commercing!

So far, 27 people in the state have been indicted in connection with the effort to overturn the 2020 election on January 6th. No body of legislators has fought more fiercely to maintain Republican supermajority power in a demographically 50/50 state. On April 28, 2023, in a rare reversal of recent precedent, the new Republican majority on the North Carolina Supreme Court struck down a previous ruling that threw out gerrymandered voting maps. And in this term, the Supreme Court will decide on Moore v Harper, a case that could give state lawmakers unchecked power over how elections are held — and even who gets to vote. In this episode, Laura Flanders sits down with the NC Attorney General Josh Stein and Hilary Harris Klein, lead attorney on the North Carolina case along with veteran civil rights attorney and law professor, Irving L. Joyner to discuss what these cases mean for democracy and voters of color. What does a better vision of democracy look like? Durham is home to the Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice, named after the human rights activist whose work was integral to the Civil Rights Movement. Murray's legacy lives on today, inspiring organizers who are determined to "bring the promise of democracy to life," as Angela M. Thorpe, the center's Executive Director, puts it. Serena Sebring, the Executive Director of Blueprint NC, shares what's needed to build Murray's vision of a multiracial democracy. What's at stake? And who's pushing back? “North Carolinians do not want this gerrymandering . . . What the legislatures are trying to do here is not the people's business. It is their own political entrenchment.” - Hilary Harris Klein“You had 30 African Americans in the North Carolina General Assembly and all of that came crashing down in 2010 with the election of Republicans . . . Their first order of business was to attack the success that we had had in building up African American political power.” - Irving L. Joyner“It's not just Raleigh, it's not just Charlotte. It's not even just Durham that matters, but it is Columbus County, it is Pasquotank Country. It is all of the people of North Carolina who must be welcomed into a democracy, if it is to be what it says it is.” - Serena Sebring“This legislature has been elected time and time again under unconstitutional maps . . . It's not a surprise they have these powers, because that's what they've done, is manipulate [voting maps] to their advantage.” - Josh Stein“I think Pauli Murray would be incredibly concerned with the way legislatures and states across the US are working to strip people, particularly Black people, of their voting rights.” - Angela M.

Chapel Hill has seen its share of violence and murder, but it has been able to push those instances aside and keep the ambiance of a Norman Rockwell–style small town. A walk through the campus of the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill can be inspiring, but the school has a darker side that has been well hidden. Over the years, there have been many murders that have taken place among the oak trees and in the dorms and frat houses on campus. Many of the murders are unsolved and remain mysteries to this day. The victims know the truth, though, that evil has no boundaries. Local historian Rick Jackson narrates the mysteries of one of North Carolina's quaintest towns. Rick Jackson is a native North Carolinian who grew up in Durham and now lives with his family in Wake Forest, just outside Raleigh. He currently teaches business and economic courses to high school students after spending many years in banking and finance in various positions. He has always had a passion for history and the stories of the people that lived it. He holds a bachelor's degree in history from Campbell University and an MBA from The University of Mount Olive.
