Ms. Dezarae Payne is the director of a monthly firearms training clinic at the Ben Clark Sheriff's Training Center in Riverside County, California for Sheriff Chad Bianco (Riverside County Sheriff) to promote firearm safety and education for California citizens, typically women. She is NRA, DOJ (California Department of Justice) and Riverside County Sheriff certified CCW (Conceal Carry Weapon) instructor. In addition, she is the founder and CEO of FemaleFirearmsInstructor.com and develops curriculum for that company, Vanguard Training and Consulting, which teaches especially women how to safely handle and carry firearms. You can check out her female-focused firearms training here : https://femalefirearmsinstructor.com/about/ Women don't necessarily want to be trained by another woman, according to Dezarae. Frankly, it might just be that they don't want to be trained by their husband or boyfriend. Ms. Payne has a unique temperament perfectly suited to this kind of training. Firearms education and training can be very intimidating to those who feel jolted by the loud noises, who are initially afraid of the weapon itself, who don't understand how it works, why it does what it does, how to clear jams safely (finger off the trigger, always aware and in control of where the muzzle is, that it's constantly at all times pointed in the best direction, a "safe" direction, etc), to load and unload and be aware of others (at all times), and to do so while having a great time, that all can be overwhelming to people new to firearms. If they feel shame or their nerves are in dorsal vagal shutdown, they won't take the information in. Culture was such in my childhood first experiences with firearms that I was afraid of being unsafe, and that fear was reinforced by my social community (by everyone), I would have been shamed into oblivion for violating any of these safety norms, it's sometimes hard for me to remember that the newcomer to firearms safety and training doesn't have those deeply ingrained habits and intuitions. Somehow, the safe and strict firearms culture in my family and friends also allowed for freedom, responsibility, and fun with firearms at a very early age there in the Colorado of my youth. But not everyone has that background, and many can't even contemplate what that would be like for them. That's why I'm so impressed with Ms. Payne's gentle, firm, disciplined, informed, safe approach to leveling women up (and some men, too). She is the guardian of the best in American "gun culture," including the politics side of this equation. This stuff doesn't happen in a political vacuum. Dezarae grew up in Montana and moved to California as an adult. She was carrying legally in her home state, having gone through the very simple process there of obtaining a carry permit. What she experienced when she got to California was a nightmare in terms of compliance. Innocent people can easily become accidental criminals in the intense matrix and web of irrationally complex, non-intuitive police state mentality of California law. Of course, as Dezarae notes, nothing changed as far as her safety and training with firearms when she moved from one part of America to another. Why the heavy-handed overreach in California ? It didn't and still doesn't make any sense, as it didn't seem to have any even minimal rationality attached to California's over-criminalization approach. Most politicians start out local. That's the time to train and educate them into protecting the right to self-defense and everything necessary to support that right, culturally and politically. So, start locally in politics.

June 2, 2022 — With a state budget surplus of $97 billion, a coalition of state public health departments and community advocates is weighing in on how to invest a promised $300 million to rebuild the state's public health infrastructure, especially the workforce. The PublicHERO initiative spells out how much money the coalition wants to be allocated to which priorities in training, recruiting, and retaining people for specialized positions. In addition to organizational backing, the proposal has support from the Governor and Senator Richard Pan, who is also a pediatrician. The gaps in Mendocino County's public health department are not entirely unique. Between the Great Resignation, burnout, an aging workforce, and decades-long disinvestment, public health departments across the state fared badly during the pandemic, according to Dr. Karen Relucio, the Public Health Officer for Napa County. “Sixty-two senior local public health officials in California cities and counties have left their positions since the start of the pandemic,” she said at a press conference for the PublicHERO initiative. “That includes 21 health officers, 20 agency directors, and 21 local health department directors.” Competition with the private sector is stiff. The last two nurses who quit Mendocino County's public health department left because they could get 50% more money elsewhere. Mendocino County Public Health Director Anne Molgaard says in addition to a shortage of nurses, there are other significant gaps in the local department. “We also don't have a Director of Nursing right now,” she said; “who would supervise those LVNs and all of the different nursing programs that we have. And we are also going to start advertising shortly for a new position called Director of Health Education. What we realized is that so much of our public health work is around communications and education. As the science changes, we need to figure out how to explain the science to non-scientists.” The DIrector of Nursing position remains vacant, despite regular advertising. Kim Saruwatari, the president of the County Health Executives Association of California (CHEAC) and the Public Health Director for Riverside County, says the height of a pandemic is the wrong time to recruit and train a workforce. “During covid, we had to double our workforce,” she said. “We went to almost 1400 employees in a matter of weeks…so there was less stringent hiring requirements, evaluation of skills, and then, once we were able to identify people and bring them onboard, we had to do extensive training…so really, the net effect of this is that we had a workforce that was not ready and trained as the public expects and deserves. We also lost time in the response because we had to divert resources to doing this training. So some of our response activities suffered as well.” The local public health department has eight nurses, and is looking to hire six to twelve more. Molgaard said with inflation, a lot of the state money might go toward salary increases, which could be key to retaining employees. Public health is stretched thin, with Public Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren doing a lot of educational work, which takes time away from delving into epidemiological data and other “things that he, as a medical professional, is specialized at,” Molgaard noted. A Director of Nursing would oversee maternal, child, and adolescent health, the WIC and home visiting programs. “So right now, we're just doing those as we can,” Molgaard said. “But they deserve more leadership. And they deserve more focused leadership.” Directors of public health labs are among the specialized positions the PublicHERO initiative would like to see funded. But Mendocino County has not had a lab for about a decade. Molgaard acknowledged that it would be easier to send specimens across town than all the way to the lab in Solano, “but would we be able to attract the people needed in order to properly staff a lab?” she asked. “Doubtful.” She estimated that she only has to send an employee to Solano about once a month. When it comes to the biggest concern for the department, outside of being understaffed, “The pandemic is still our number one issue,” Molgaard said. “And no, monkeypox is not our number two issue. Probably venereal disease is our number two issue. I hate to say it. But it's not pretty in Mendocino County right now.” The final numbers from the state budget should be available this month. “If they're together in Sacramento, early June,” Molgaard predicted. “If not, it can spill into late June or July. But I'd love to report back then.”

Because they're not getting paid your money. So for you to say, Oh, I expect them to like work harder do this well, okay, well then give them a piece of the equity and maybe they will. But yeah, no one's gonna work the way you're gonna work. No one's gonna protect your money or your investors' money the way that you are either.    Intro  00:18 Welcome 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  00:30 Justin Brennan is the CEO and multifamily investor of the Brennan Pohle Group. They own over 500 units. He's also a real estate broker. Justin, welcome to the show.   Justin Brennan  00:39 Thanks for having me on, man. I appreciate it.   Sam Wilson  00:41 Hey, man, the pleasure is mine. There's three questions I ask every guest who comes on the show: in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now? How did you get there?   Justin Brennan  00:50 Well, we started in 2010 was the first investment we bought in that was $100,000 condo in the midst of the financial crisis in Murrieta, California, of all places, which is actually the heart of the financial crisis, right in Riverside County. The irony in that, and then that kind of grew from a single condo investment rental property into two to four-unit deals, then we got into five to 10, then 20 to 50. And then now we're into the 90 plus 100 plus unit space, and then you're starting to hit those 200 unit deals.   Sam Wilson  01:21 Got it. I love that it sounds like you guys have taken a very measured approach to your investing. What have been some of the things you feel like you've done really well?   Justin Brennan  01:30 The logistics of setting up operations, especially from going in state to out of state investing, you know, we kind of mastered the different size of deals, not getting too big, too fast. You know, you hear from some syndicators and guys saying, I'll just go big, go big, and, you know, I get it, I get the thought, in theory, they're accurate. But the thing they're missing is that first of all, they never started big. So I don't know how they say that. Number two, there's more zeros in the big stuff and more big mistakes you're gonna make because you're gonna make mistakes. And so I'd rather make mistakes with smaller zeros where you can recoup that versus making a mistake that's 100 to 200 to a million-dollar mistake. And so managing those mistakes to where they were minimized and learning about along the process to where, you know, now we're at a point where you learn as you go is a part of that too. And now I feel like okay, we've gotten through some of those pains to where I'm not going to make the same mistakes twice. I mean, we're dealing with larger numbers, now you're dealing with $30, $40, $50 million deals or not 2 million, right? Or 500,000. So big difference.    Sam Wilson  02:37 Big, big difference there. When you say you got the logistics of operations figured out. What does that mean to you?   Justin Brennan  02:43 Yeah, so when you're going out of state because it was the big thing for us in 2017-18 said, okay, you know, we're in California, it's not the cheapest place to live, we want to grow. So we had to set up operations outside and my business partner Christopher Pohle had ended up purchasing a ranch outside of Austin. So that was kind of now second headquarters was outside of Austin's now we had Midwest and then west coast. And then going into each market, we were interested in primarily Midwest being Kansas City in Missouri, we got Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama, stuff like that, Tennessee, in setting up operations about six to nine months in advance, actually pulling in deals. And when I say operations, I mean property management companies, construction crews, logistics, legal accounting, all those things that you're going to deal with from kind of the back office side of things, lay of the land, good neighborhoods, bad neighborhoods, where's the development? Where's pat the progress? Where's the city planning on putting in money? Are there railways and other light rail systems, all these details that go into where's the market for the market, so we don't just go in and start finding deals and then kind of catch tail later. It's six to nine months in advance, get the lay of the land operations set up so that way when deals start flowing, we can execute quickly.   Sam Wilson  03:57 That sounds very time intensive. What is the practical way that you guys have decided to do that without you, Justin moving to Nashville, Tennessee and going okay, let me go spend nine months here and figure out what the city is doing?   Justin Brennan  04:12 I am flying in there consistently during that six to nine months. And spending three, four days of time meetings, driving neighborhoods, learning it. So yeah, it is time-intensive. But it's also avoided us from making really dumb mistakes and getting put into a neighborhood and we're like, we shouldn't have bought here. Right? Right. I mean, so perfect examples. You know, every time we're looking at a deal, I'll go sit at the property at different times in different days of the week. So I'll go in the morning. I'll go midday, and I'll go in the evening and wait for people to come home from work. I'll go on a weekday and weekend, typically a Sunday and I say Monday or Tuesday because I just want to see the flow of the area flow the neighborhood when you're getting past normal due diligence and things like that, right. So you need to understand what you're getting yourself into otherwise, you deal with horror stories like I heard recently from a first-time syndicator, who bought a property had money backing, it was his first bigger deal, didn't do proper due diligence, got into it thought they were getting a great deal because they had a great basis. And on paper, the cap rate looks great cash on cash, everything looks good on paper, then come to find out because of the lack of due diligence, there was a lot of deferred maintenance, a lot of issues with that property neighborhood not being the best setup. And they inherited a lot of delinquencies, bad tenants issues, and it just turned into a complete... And now they've lost well over a million dollars. Well, and the guys, he'll never do another syndication because he'll never get money again. He was backed by good money, good people. But because he operated so poorly, he's basically blackballed. No, right. I say, don't go big too soon, right. Despite what you know, some people say you're gonna make mistakes, just don't make big ones.   Sam Wilson  06:00 When you're setting up your back office, talking about attorneys, title companies, all of those, you know, other than calling your contractors and maybe even going and seeing their work like, what else, what other due diligence is there really to do until you're ready to send them a deal? I mean, there's only so many conversations you can have with a contractor like, Hey, you guys, yeah, we've done these three projects. Okay, cool. Well, and I get one together, I'll call you.   Justin Brennan  06:24 Yeah, exactly. You can certainly go and see some of their work. That's definitely something you want to take a look at. Understanding, you know, there are foremen who run the jobs. What kind of software do they use? How do they do billing? Who does their supply chain? Who's going to order the supplies? Is it going to be you as the owner? Is it going to be them? Yeah. How's their labor force? We're talking about labor shortages, especially these days. Right? So we're dealing with that, you know, in foreman on-site, you know, because a lot of times they're running multiple jobs. So okay, great. So the foreman is going to be here once a day in the mornings in the evenings, who's opening up who's locking units? Is it our job, is it your job, is it our maintenance staff? Logistically, how are we dealing with that? Yeah, what software are you guys using? Are we corresponding through that for just… because when you're doing renovations on value add? It's an assembly line. Right? Right. And so you have to really manage that correctly. So you don't have too many vacancies at a time. Too many not available at a time. It's like this seesaw assembly line battle between your kind of rental guys and your leasing staff. Right. And that blending those two together to where you Okay, five units a month come vacant? How long does it take you to turn those things? How long does it take you to market them? How long does it take people to get in there where you're collecting checks? And I kind of calculate check to check meaning person moves out, you're not getting any money once next person give you a check? Is it 30 days, 60 days, fortify like, what does that look like? Right? In timing that up and then layering over-layering. Because it's a dance, it's not easy to manage that process. And it's not a perfect science. So having a construction crew that gets that in can help you manage that isn't just all over the place is really, really, really important.   Sam Wilson  08:02 Yeah, absolutely. What about that, I guess that the management side of it, is there a certain size of construction company? You guys always look for where you say, Man, you've got to have X number of employees, you got to do X number of dollars in volume a year? Is there anything like that, that goes into that equation on your kind of due diligence?   Justin Brennan  08:20 Yeah, so you should definitely have at least one foreman on-site or an assistant foreman every day. And if you're going to run the jobs, and if they're leaving for a little bit, but they need to pretty much be there constantly in and out every day, touching the job site every day. And then you're typically going to have two workers per unit is kind of what I've seen the best flow from a labor force standpoint. So if you're going into renting a unit, depending on what you're doing to but let's… presuming you're doing a pretty good Reno, and you're adding washer dryers and some electrical work. So there's some rough stuff that has to get done. That usually happens first. See those guys going in and doing the rough electrical, rough plumbing, and then that gets done. So now coming in behind that as some drywall painting cabinet, guys, countertops, fixtures, plumbing, electrical fixture type stuff. Flooring is usually one of the last items going and stuff like that. And then appliances if you're bringing those in. So the two guys per unit. So if you're doing five units at a time, per month, right, that's 10 dudes on-site every day. Yeah. Plus your foreman, right? So Mister contractor, can you supply that? Yes, we can. Okay, what happens if you don't? Right? So just working through some of that logistical stuff? Because we've dealt with it, right. We're the contractor says x. And then there's five guys on site. And then you start falling behind, right? Because now you're not catching up to the rental schedule, right? And then you got to backtrack and all this other stuff. So it's not a perfect science.   Sam Wilson  09:49 No, it's not even like you said, if they say yeah, we can get 10 guys on-site plus a foreman. I mean, if you're not there, when the cat's away, the mice will play, especially in the   Justin Brennan  09:59 And that's where our staff comes on top of that. That's why it's so key. That's why we don't do any deals under 90 units anymore, right? Because 90 units is where the economies of scale come in, where you have on-site management, on-site leasing, on-site maintenance on-site, everybody. And so they're my eyes and ears on it. Plus, we have cameras, right? Plus, we have me, and I'm on-site every other week, and I'll just show up randomly. on purpose, right, and you just have to listen, nobody's gonna watch your money, like you're gonna watch your money and you can't expect people to watch your money like you're gonna watch it. Because they're not getting paid your money, right? So for you say, Oh, I expect them to like work harder. Do this well, okay, well, then give them a piece of the equity and maybe they will write that's maybe, oh, maybe but yeah, no one's gonna work the way you're gonna work. No one's gonna protect your money or your investors' money the way that you are either.   Sam Wilson  10:49 Have you ever made a bad by?   Justin Brennan  10:51 Not yet? Not knock on wood, man. No, not yet. We could have you know, we ended up last year having to pull out of a deal that in hindsight, was kind of it was weird as a blessing because we were finding things out. And then but we had money hard. And there was really wasn't there wasn't an out force legally at that point. But just so happened, there was a fire on one of the properties during escrow, which ended up giving us an out legally. And then hindsight 2020, you're like, gosh, that was actually a good decision. Because it may have ended up being a bad buy for us at the time, you know, kind of looking forward now, six months later, like we got, you know, a lot going on with this other property at the moment. So it would have been put us in a tough spot. So that was a little bit of luck. But I'd say there's no accidents, things happen for a reason. And there are no accidents. The craziest things happen in life.   Sam Wilson  11:46 But what's a lesson or a mistake you've made that you feel like you could help someone else not make?   Justin Brennan  11:52 Don't hire the cheapest contractor. I made that mistake once even though I did my due diligence on them, right? We checked them all out. I even tested them, like on a small portion of the job first to see if they could execute. And they did. And I was like, okay, so you got you got a little $3,000 portion of the job you executed. Okay, now we're gonna graduate you up to the next stage, and then come to find out, they're just full of hot air. And they took about $17,000. And, you know, so I mean, it wasn't a massive mistake that we couldn't recuperate from it, it was a $17,000 mistake. But imagine if that was another contractor on a much and that was only on a 30 unit deal. I say the mistakes are made. Imagine that was a 200-unit deal. And that was a $200,000 mistake, right? Do not ever, people know this intuitively, but just stick with this. Don't ever pay the contractors in advance. I mean, progress payments, you can do a deposit, typically, maybe 25%. But a lot of times, you'll get bids come in and they'll say 50% up front and then 50% Upon completion. Yeah, kiss my you know what, right? I will pay you a 20 to 25% deposit upfront, then we will do progress payments, right, depending on the length of your job, and then you will get the final payment within 30 days of completion.   Sam Wilson  13:12 Yeah, that 25% Upfront is largely contingent upon what they're bringing, if they're not bringing any materials, and it's all straight labor. Correct. If it's straight labor, I would be really hard-pressed to give them anything. Well, sure.   Justin Brennan  13:24 Yeah. So the usually the deposits are typically based on materials they're bringing on site roofing or fencing or, you know, basic stuff, then you're typically paying a 25% deposit, because there's an on site move for materials.   Sam Wilson  13:41 Right, yeah, I get it. I was a contractor for way too long. I completely understand it.   Justin Brennan  13:46  And I'm a licensed GC. So but yeah, I would never, we just learned that battle. And you'd have to fight it a bit because they want some more payment up front. Because they're either, with all due respect, not all of them. So I don't want to aggregate but a lot of really bad money management. So they're floating a job here for job there and money moving here for that here. And they can't really manage their money correctly. So they're taking money from here to pay some guys over here. And you see how that flows. And you're not going to use our job as your cash flow or so.   Sam Wilson  14:15 Right. Not only that, but also just the risk of them. Like you said, backing up and walk and you go oh, okay, well, thanks. Well, that was enjoyable writing you…   Justin Brennan  14:23 I paid you 50% upfront, right? Yeah, you go deposit, but that's specific, usually for materials.   Sam Wilson  14:29 Right. Yep, that makes a heck of a lot of sense. Justin, if our listeners want to get in touch with you, what's the best way to do that?   Justin Brennan  14:35 Google me, man, Justin Brennan on Google. That's probably the easiest way to have some stuff pop up or you can go to our website, which is brennanpohle.com. That's B-R-E-N-N-A-N-P-O-H-L-E.com. And, yeah, read whatever you want.   Sam Wilson  14:53 Great. Sounds good, man. Justin, thanks for your time today. Certainly appreciate it.   Justin Brennan  14:55 You bet.

Real Estate News Brief - Week Ending April 16, 2022;Inflation Hits 40-Year-High, Double-Digit Rent Growth, Rising Cost for New HomesIn this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending April 16th, 2022... the latest surge in consumer prices, where rents are growing the fastest, and the high cost of building new homes.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week, and another alarming report on inflation. The consumer price index jumped 1.2% last month to a 40-year high of 8.5%. The increase was mostly driven by higher prices for gas, food, and housing. If you eliminate gas and food you get a core rate of 6.5%. Some economists believe that inflation will ease up soon, when the price of oil stabilizes and some of the supply chain issues clear up. But other economists worry that we might continue to see prices going higher. (1)Wholesale prices are also surging. The producer price index was up 1.4% in March to an annual rate of 11.2%. That's the highest it's been in almost 40 years and likely a sign of continued inflation. Economist Kurt Rankin of PNC Financial Services says: “Producer prices are an early warning sign of what households can expect in terms of consumer price inflation.” (2)There was a slight rise in new jobless claims, but that's off a 54-year low just last week. The Labor Department reported an 18,000 increase in applications, to a total of 185,000. Meanwhile, the number of continuing claims went down 48,000 to a total of 1.48 million. (3)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates hit the 5% mark for the first time in more than 10 years. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was up 28 basis points to exactly 5%. The 15-year was up 26 points to 4.17%. High home prices combined with higher mortgage rates are making it a lot harder for many Americans to become homeowners. (4)In other news making headlines…Rents Hit Double-Digits in Many AreasRents are also moving higher in step with home prices. Many landlords are playing catch-up with rent levels after the pandemic. Realtor.com says that average rents are up almost 20% since 2020. The research covered March of 2020 to March of this year. (5)Among the areas with the fastest rent growth are Miami; Riverside County, California; and Tampa, Florida. Orlando and Jacksonville are also both in the top 10 for rent growth.Realtor.com economist Daniel Hale says that rents are creating affordability issues for some renters. She also says there are signs that rent growth is slowing down but it's hard to predict if the trend will continue. She says: “The jury is still out on whether rent growth will hit single digits by the end of 2022.”Property Taxes Heading HigherHome values appear to be rising much faster than property tax, which suggests that tax assessors have some catching up to do. ATTOM Data Solutions says the average property tax on single-family homes rose 1.8% nationwide last year. That's the slowest pace of tax growth in five years. (6)ATTOM's Rick Sharga says it's surprising that property taxes have gone up more because home values are up 16% for last year. That likely means that homeowners can expect to see higher tax bills as homes are reassessed.Some areas have already increased property taxes. In Nashville, Tennessee, they went up an average of 27% last year. Milwaukee homeowners are paying about 18% more on property taxes. Baltimore and Grand Rapids, Michigan, are third and fourth for the highest recent tax increases. Surprisingly, tax rates actually went down in some areas including Houston, Dallas, and Austin, Texas.Prices Keep Rising for Building MaterialsThe cost of building a new home keeps going up, although lumber prices just came down a little. The National Association of Home Builders says building material prices have gone up 20.4% year-over-year and 33% from the beginning of the pandemic. (7)Additional costs have added 31% to the cost of a new home. Realtor.com reports the average sales price of a new home was $511,000 in February. Insider attributes the drop in lumber prices to improvements in the supply chain and a softening of demand for lumber. It says lumber prices have fallen 39% from a March high and are now 52% lower than they were in May of last year. That's when they peaked at $1,733 per one thousand board feet.That's it for today.

This week we're replaying a classic episode where your hosts Steve Lowry and Yvonne Godfrey interview Nick Rowley and Steve Halteman of Carpenter, Zuckerman, & Rowley, (https://czrlaw.com/).   Remember to rate and review GTP in iTunes: Click Here To Rate and Review   Episode Details: Award-winning trial lawyer Nick Rowley -- a U.S. Air Force and Army veteran and one of the youngest trial lawyers to be named Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles' Trial Lawyer of the Year -- explains how he represented grieving mother Carmen Jordan after her 33-year-old son Orlando Jordan was stabbed and killed in a Riverside, California TGI Fridays restaurant by an intoxicated minor and his friend.  Steve Halteman, jury consultant and Nick's co-author of the book, Trial By Human, assisted with the case and joins Steve and Yvonne to discuss this trial.  In January 2009, Orlando was enjoying a date with his girlfriend when her son Michael Castillo, 20, and his friend Louis Martinez, 27, arrived at the restaurant. Already intoxicated, Michael and Louis ordered 12 servings of alcohol in the span of 30 minutes without being asked for identification. Michael proceeded to get into a heated argument with Orlando and stabbed him. Orlando later succumbed to his injuries. Despite TGI Fridays restaurant operator Briad Group's attempts to deny any responsibility, the family's allegations were supported by the head bartender, who testified that Briad Group made a deliberate decision to not card minors in order to increase profits on Fridays and Saturdays. A Riverside County, California jury awarded Orlando's parents $40 million in damages and assigned 55% of the blame to Briad Group. Michael and Louis were both convicted in separate criminal trials and sentenced to serve time in state prison. Click Here to Read/Download the Complete Trial Documents   Guest Bio: Nicholas C.

He is also a trial strategist and jury consultant for a number of attorneys including Nick Rowley. In his career, Mr. Halteman has consulted on cases resulting in verdicts of more than $600 million in total. His trial philosophy demands that lawyers relentlessly narrow their case to its heart, eliminating ancillary issues that distract jurors from the truth. Mr. Halteman often analogizes his trial strategy to furniture building, his hobby. The strongest and most elegant chair or table has no unnecessary parts or flourishes. Likewise, he believes that every component of a trial must have an important purpose, or it must be shed. Mr. Halteman credits his unclouded perspective of what jurors and judges really want with having lived overseas for most of his adult life, his travels through over 100 countries, and having himself served as a court commissioner in Maryland. In his spare time, he has completed six marathons, a couple of ultramarathons, and hiked both the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail and 3,100-mile Continental Divide Trail. But his greatest accomplishment is having a 15-year-old daughter who still speaks to him with a measure of fondness.

Aleta Laurence has been retired for the past 19 years. She learned money management by necessity when pregnant with her first child, which was ME! In this episode she shares how she saved diligently and budgeted carefully to build up enough retirement savings to last her throughout her later years. Reflecting on her first full-time salaried job she points out that the take-home pay is never as much as you think it will be. “Of course, then the taxes come out, and the social security comes out, and the copay for the health insurance comes out. And so of course I had a lot less money than I thought I was going to have, but I saved anyway." More than once Aleta mentions how fortunate she feels to have had all the money stuff work out. She occasionally needed a little bit of help along the way in the form of loans which she paid back, but overall it was her consistency in saving and spending wisely which made the difference. She does mention that in hindsight, she thinks it would have been beneficial to have taken more vacations and time off to avoid burnout. Join us for a trip down memory lane! Aleta has a matters degree in urban planning and is the former planning director for Riverside County, California. I feel very fortunate to have been able to interview my mom on the show. After we finished recording she added that she should have told everyone to exercise and brush their teeth. She says if you do those all along you won't have big problems later but if you don't, you will struggle, and you can't make up for it later.

There's a lot of work to be done, and Senator Henry Stern and Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia are working to make sure we don't squander our efforts to make a real and lasting difference for California water. Senator Henry Stern is a surfer, a seventh generation Californian, a new dad and the representative of the 27th district encompassing parts of Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Prior to being elected in November 2016, he was an environmental attorney and senior advisor to his predecessor, Fran Pavley. As someone who has experienced the devastation of wildfires firsthand, Stern has worked to boost the state's wildfire preparedness and pushed hard to address what he calls the state's climate change emergency. Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia is a son of Coachella Valley, a proud father, and a passionate advocate for addressing the environmental issues of the Salton Sea. He represents the 56th district covering eastern Riverside County and Imperial County. He is acknowledged as the driving force behind California's historic climate change package--a groundbreaking legislative effort that will help steer our state into a more sustainable future. So get ready to be inspired and informed as we talk about how these two legislators got here, what they're fighting for, and why Californians should care.
