Synopsis In the 13th century, St. Thomas Aquinas penned a Latin hymn in praise of the holy sacrament of the last supper in which bread and wine are mystically changed into the body and blood of Christ. Aquinas's text begins, “Pange lingua, gloriosi” or “Sing, my tongue, the Savior's Glory.” Aquinas's words have been set to a melody much older than his text, possibly derived from a Roman marching song or an even earlier Hebrew chant. On May 21, 1983, this ancient text and tune underwent yet another transformation at the hands of the American composer and jazzman Dave Brubeck, when his “Pange Lingua Variations” for chorus, jazz ensemble and orchestra had its premiere at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Sacramento, California. In Brubeck's setting, each stanza is sung first in original Gregorian chant style, followed by a variation. Brubeck said, “I searched for the meaning of each stanza, and tried to convey that thought musically, so that each variation is a miniature meditation.” The third variation, taking its cue from the music's possible origin as a Roman marching tune, is given an appropriately martial treatment by both the chorus and jazz ensemble. While jazz fans associate Dave Brubeck with the sophisticated jazz he developed in the 50s and 60s, many church musicians also know him as the composer of many oratorios on sacred themes, which often incorporate jazz elements into their scoring.

At more than $6 a gallon, California has the highest gasoline prices in the country. So what's Sacramento doing? State lawmakers want to use part of a $97 billion budget surplus to send out rebate checks. But legislators are in a stalemate over the details. Reporter: Nicole Nixon, CapRadio When it comes to COVID-19 infection rates, the Bay Area continues to lead the state, but the numbers are rising across California, driven largely by subvariants of the coronavirus. With cases also rising in Southern California, the CDC has now moved L.A. County's COVID risk level from low to medium. Reporter: Jackie Fortier, KPCC State Senators Melissa Hurtado and Dave Cortese have sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, requesting that the Department of Justice investigate possible drought profiteering and water rights abuses in California, and other western states.

Join Brent Anderson as he tells stories from his experiences in the Enchanted Mountains of the Alleghany River Valley, in rural Uganda, and in the challenges of health care in Sacramento. Brent opens up learnings gleaned from work with trauma, poverty, healing divisions, and equipping people with skills do dialogue across polarities, thus deepening relationships and strengthening communal resilience. From Brent's interview: “As a chaplain…. I learned so much more about the movement of Spirit in and through the lives of my patients that were experiencing it in such a practical way. You know, from the powerful ways the Spirit moves in our vulnerability and our pain, and also what really is mattering to people; many graced moments of "the ordinary". But I was also present to the utterly extraordinary. I got to hear over a hundred first-hand near-death experiences. As people would recount these vivid encounters when they reached kind of that brink of death and then have this experience of this luminous divine healing light, or encountering past family members. … The ministry was like an extreme sport. It was the extremes of trauma and the extremes of grace. Sometimes in the exact same encounter.” “The area of town where our clinic and hospital are is an area where there's a lot of poverty where people have significant social challenges, higher rates of traumatic upbringings, and that also does include human trafficking. This clinic team, feeling the horror of the reality of human trafficking, wondered if they could do something more about it. And so fast forward … to just two years later, this team had successfully established the nation's very first medical home for human trafficking survivors; it's a key part now of a multi-agency process that wraps survivors with the kind of multiple layers of support. They found their passion in service and went on to literally write the book in trauma informed care for survivors of human trafficking. … Our physicians, our nurses, our medical assistants all coalesced around this ministry. And this medical home model for survivors of human trafficking is now being replicated nationwide.” “For me, the most important part of spiritual direction is Franciscan presence. It's so core to the work. The inner quiet and the prevalent attention creates spaciousness to welcome the soul of the other. I think of it as Franciscan hospitality, but at the level of soul. … I think that's the power of Franciscan presence in spiritual direction that helps people be open to the healing and the integrated work of the Spirit.” “I think the Franciscan values of active peacemaking and tending in an integral ecology contains the wisdom that our world needs right now to bridge the divides that we have today. I'm stunned that all of our children go through an education system where they learn about science and history and math and a foreign language, but they never learn the language of the heart and how to deeply listen to the soul of another human being. And while trained chaplains and spiritual directors do this with Franciscan presence on a professional level, I think we'd live in such a more connected and loving place if even a critical mass of us had some training in how to hold this kind of space for each other.” For a full transcript, please include episode number and email: email@example.com.

John is very clear: To believe in Christ's life, death, resurrection, and ascension is to be born again in Him. Through faith in Him, we overcome this evil world by His work and grace.

California farmers are no strangers to drought, although the magnitude of this, a third straight dry year, has widespread and significant impacts in Sacramento Valley rice country and nearby communities. A lack of adequate rain above Shasta Dam has brought historic water cutbacks to growers on the west side of the Sacramento Valley, with a major reduction in rice plantings. This contrasts the east side of the valley, where rice acreage is expected to be normal to potentially above normal. Full rice acreage won't be known until later this spring. “We're down to 25 percent of normal rice acreage,” said grower Kurt Richter, who farms in Colusa County. “For a westside operation, that figure is actually very high this year. I'm the only person I know who is on the west side who is even planting rice at all.” The sharp reduction in rice planting will have a ripple effect along the west side of the valley, including not only rice mills, dryers, ag pilots, supply companies and truckers, but virtually all people and businesses. “We have never seen a year like this,” remarked Rick Richter of Richter Aviation. Rick has aerially seeded rice fields since the 1970s. “We're basically one-seventh of what we normally do.” Other area businesses echo Richter's comments and concerns. “You talk to some of the guys that went through drought in the 1980s and this seems to be even worse,” said Jason Bowen, Pest Control Advisor at Colusa County Farm Supply. “This affects everyone. Every person you talk to. It doesn't matter where you work at, you're completely affected.” Bowen is among those who hope state and federal aid is forthcoming, to help during a time of significant economic hardship. “Any aid would benefit everyone,” he said. “Whoever the aid does go to, it's going to trickle down all the way through the local economies in any way, shape or form.” While faced with cutbacks not seen in decades, there remains a persevering nature that is a hallmark characteristic of this region. “People here are tough. They are strong and have a way of working together to make this successful ,” said Jim Cook, Director of Research and Technology at Colusa County Farm Supply. “We know we're in for a tough go. The bottom line is we have no other place to go. This is like the Alamo for us. This is our place where we're going to make a stand and we are going to survive.” Jennifer Abel is General Manager of Luis Cairo's in Williams, a restaurant with a rich history in the valley. She said they, like so many restaurants, have had big challenges in recent years, from COVID-19 restrictions, the economic downturn and large fires in nearby areas. Drought impacts to nearby farms and ranches will likely impact their business, but she remained positive about their future. “We're really strong and united,” she said. “We have a solid foundation of families and people that have been here for a long time that have been farming and working in this community. They're going to come together, make a difference and make something happen.” Episode Transcript Jim Morris: This is normally a time of activity far and wide in the Sacramento Valley, rice planting season, including here in Glenn County. There's a disconcerting lack of tractors and airplanes working on the west side of the valley right now, as a third year of drought is impacting our region in an unprecedented way. With so much farmland idle, impacts will be strongly felt. This year will be a test like no other. Kurt Richter: There's going to be a lot of people that are not going to be able to find work this year. Rick Richter: Every person you talk to around the local community has been affected. Jim Cook: This is really like the Alamo for us. This is our place where we're going to make a stand and we are going to survive. Jim Morris: Welcome to Ingrained: The California Rice Podcast. I'm your host, Jim Morris, proud to have worked with California farmers and ranchers for more than 30 years to help tell their stories. Simply put, there is no year in memory compared to what's happening this year, especially for those who live and work along the Sacramento River. Pain will be real and widespread. We won't know the total acreage of rice planted in the state until later this spring. For now, it's clear that planting will be dramatically lower on the west side of the Sacramento Valley, and it appears to be normal to perhaps a bit greater on the east side. Kurt Richter, what's happening in your rice fields right now? Kurt Richter: We are currently wrapping up getting the 2022 crop into the ground. It has been kind of a short season for us because acres are scaled back so significantly. Our workforce is scaled back significantly too, but we're probably a week away from getting the final fields planted and in the ground. Jim Morris: One of the words that comes up a lot this year is unprecedented. Is that a good adjective to describe what you're seeing? What type of cutbacks are you having? Kurt Richter: Notable cutbacks, the worst that we've ever seen in our operation, and I'm sure that goes out industry-wide as well. We're down to 25 percent of normal, and for a west side operation like us, that's actually very high. I'm the only person I know on the west side who's even planting rice at all. But we're very fortunate, with some of the leases that we hold, where well water is available, very good river water rights are available. We're able to maximize that. However, 25 percent is still the lowest we've ever been by a large margin. Jim Morris: The impacts from that reduction extend well beyond your farm I imagine, so let's start with your farm. How does it impact you, your workforce, and then how does it impact the communities around you? Kurt Richter: Well, we're running a much leaner crew than we typically run. We just don't need the people that we normally need because we don't have the acres to necessitate it. So, a lot of the seasonal people that we typically hire this time of the year are not coming on board with us. We just don't have anything for them to do. We're getting by with our full-time guys for the most part. That's how we're scaled back. Kurt Richter: I've heard many similar stories from other growers, too. There's going to be a lot of people that are not going to be able to find work this year. And then when you extend that out to the rice dryers, the rice mills, I mean they're all going through budget cuts right now too, layoffs, paring down and trying to figure out how to survive a year where, in some areas, there is no rice at all. Jim Morris: That sound is Nick Richter seeding a rice field in Colusa County, an all too uncommon sight on the west side of the Sacramento valley this year. Rick Richter is Nick's dad, and he owns Richter Aviation in Maxwell. You've been seeding rice field since the late '70s. Rick, how different is this year compared to all of the past time you worked in rice? Rick Richter: We have never seen a year like this if you really want to know the truth. Back in the '70s, like '76, '77, I remember we were at 50 percent, and I don't recall any year quite like this. Jim Morris: For those not directly involved in farming, they may not understand that impacts from not being able to plant crops extend well beyond the farm level. How does this drought and the idled acreage impact businesses like yourself and other businesses on the west side of the Sacramento Valley in particular? Rick Richter: Well, this year as an example, Jim, last year we did 42,000 acres. This year we'll be lucky to do 6,000 acres. So, we're basically one-seventh of what we normally do. And last year was a 75 percent year, so we were even short at that following a few years of cutbacks. So, this is pretty hard to take. Jim Morris: You'd much rather be in an airplane right now? Rick Richter: Most definitely, and I've got four other pilots that aren't here would rather be flying. So, right now we just have Nick, my son, he's out flying and doing the work. And he'll be done. This is his only seeding job for the day. Jim Morris: You've been at this a long time. I imagine you don't do any of this without the thought that you have to persevere through tough years. Will you and will the region largely come through this okay? Rick Richter: Well it has to rain, Jim. We're here because of the drought, and we understand that, but we'll persevere. Jim Morris: Work is well underway to try to help third parties suffering from the drought, businesses like yourself, for the sake of this region. How helpful would that be? Rick Richter: Oh, Jim, that'd be a Godsend. If there's aid out there, we'll take it. We'd rather be working, granted. Jim Morris: How concerned are you for allied businesses? Everybody has a different structure and financial situation, but so many are being impacted so seriously this year. Rick Richter: Oh, the allied industries, I've talked to several of them so far. From the fuel suppliers, to the fertilizer companies, to the trucking companies. Every person you talk to around the local community has been affected. And it's just going to get worse. We're just hoping this is a one-year deal and we'll get some rain and come out of this. Jim Morris: I'm in the Williams area speaking with Jason Bowen, Pest Control Advisor for more than 20 years at Colusa County Farm Supply, a Chico State graduate just like myself. Jason, tell me about this unfolding year and drought impacts as you see them. Jason Bowen: Started out the winter with a lot of hope with the storms that we had in December. Progressing through the winter that kept on going down, and down, and down. And we're kind of where we're at right now. Being a PCA, and then also a rice farmer, everything we're seeing that nobody's ever seen. You talk to some of the guys that went through this in the '80s, and this seems to be even worse. On our side of it, it's nothing we've ever seen. Hopefully we'll never see it again. Jim Morris: I'm going to mention a quote I saw that you stated, and would like you to amplify that a little bit. Several years ago during an earlier time of drought you said, "California rice farmers are a special breed of people, great stewards of the land who create environmentally friendly habitat for migrating waterfowl and other species of birds. I am proud to be part of this industry, not only as a consultant, but as a farmer who instills a love of agriculture to my wife and two sons every chance I get." Awesome quote. I personally share those sentiments. So someone who does not know this Sacramento Valley area, how intertwined are rice growers with the environment and the local business community? Jason Bowen: Completely. Everything goes hand in hand from starting at the farmer going all the way down, all the businesses in one way or the other are affected. From the aerial applicators, to the ground applicators, to chemical and fertilizer distributors, mills, all the way down, trucking, grocery store. It's a trickle down to everyone. When the farmers are affected, the entire community's affected. I live in Maxwell, right in the heart of rice growing country, and I've never seen anything like it. I mean my house is surrounded by rice fields that are completely dried up, and not an acre around there is being planted besides a few fields here and there. So it affects everyone, every person you talk to. It doesn't matter where you work at, you're completely affected. Jim Morris: Not too far from Maxwell is Sites, and there is talk and hope to get a reservoir built. I know it's in the future, but how helpful would additional water storage be for the future of the valley down the road? Jason Bowen: Any additional water obviously would be completely helpful with the world that we live in. Everybody knows when the water projects were built they were managed in a way that it was for flood protection, for environment, for farming, for everything. That's obviously being pulled on a lot harder. Any shape or form where we can store more water when we do have those high water-flow years is a benefit for everybody in the Northern Sacramento Valley. Jim Morris: And looking at the here and now, it's obviously going to be a tremendously difficult year. If it does come through, how helpful would state and/or federal aid be for this region? Jason Bowen: Any aid would benefit everyone. Everyone in the communities, it's a trickle down. So whoever the aid does go to it's going to trickle down all the way through the local economies in any way, shape, or form. Jim Morris: Jim Cook is Director of Research and Technology at Colusa County Farm Supply. Jim, tell me about the drought impacts you're seeing and experiencing. Jim Cook: Well, one of the main things that we see is, being a support group for a support business like Colusa County Farm Supply, is our capacity to provide information and new products to our growers and fieldmen. The delay or the abbreviation of trying to get trials out, trying to get accurate information, and it has just changed the entire scheduling, our pace, the way our guys operate. Jim Cook: But also what it's done for us is, all of our information that we develop from a research standpoint is localized. So you can't take information let's say from the east side of the valley and bring it over here to the west side. So that's why it's important that we get our own information put together. So you have a drought, you have less fields to work with, it delays that information process which our guys need to move forward with new things. Jim Morris: Those new things will ultimately help the grower and then the consumer. This takes years to develop, so this year is significant in terms of the challenge to get this done. Correct? Jim Cook: That's absolutely right. You just interviewed with Jason, who is one of the top rice people I've ever worked with. But he has thrown at me more problems than I can shake a stick at. But it gives us an opportunity to test the new materials against the new resistance issues, cultural factors, things that we're operating against. And that is the direction of where his business and the business of our fieldmen are going, so we need to provide that information. Jim Morris: On the website for this company it says, "This region of California is also a treasured source of year-round natural beauty. We're proud to be a vital part of this area, its communities, and production agriculture. We know a lot of people in this region that are hurting." Comment on how resilient this region is. Jim Cook: All of us come from farming backgrounds and have been through tough times. One of the main comments my father made to me is, "Don't go into farming," because of these issues. People are tough. They're strong. They have a way of working together to make this successful, but they know they're in for a tough go. We all know with that. Bottom line is, we have no other place to go. We don't have the golden parachute. We don't have anything that's going to bail us out. This is it. So it is up to us to make this happen. Jim Morris: The dominoes from this year's drought will fall well beyond the obvious farms, mills, ag pilots, equipment, and inputs for crops. Communities with agriculture as our foundation are hurting and they're bracing for a summer like no other. Jennifer Abel is General Manager at Louis Cairo's, a place she's worked at for nearly 30 years. Louis Cairo's is a dining institution in Williams, a short drive off of Interstate 5, about an hour north of Sacramento. Jennifer, please tell me about your perspective and the impacts you're either seeing or fearing regarding the drought. Jennifer Abel: I feel that it's going to be detrimental to our community. Already, the people that come in at the end of the day, normally the farmers talking about their rice, and their water, and what it looks like, and what the ground looks like as they're sewing it up, and everything like that. You don't see a lot of that going on. You see them coming in and having these meetings, and they're nervous, and they're tense, and things are getting scary. And the west side is, from my understanding, which is where we're at, has the hardest hit compared to the east side. It's going to be a huge impact on not only our community, but the entire north state, the entire state, and nation. Jim Morris: The Cairo family immigrated from Italy in the early 1900s. They had little money, so the entire family worked in prune orchards. Louis loved Colusa County and opened up a hamburger stand in the 1930s. Louis Cairo's has been in operation for more than 75 years. If you haven't done it, you need to visit, and you have to try their Louie Bread. You won't forget it. Jennifer, how connected is this place, this community, with the farmers whose fields surround all the towns in the Sacramento Valley? Jennifer Abel: I'd say we're incredibly connected to the point that ... Well for instance, going through COVID and everything. And there was a time when we opened, closed, opened, closed, to-go only, outdoors only. Then we just had to close for a while because we weren't monetarily making it on just being open for to-go. Then we had the wildfires that were up this way and it was literally raining ash, so you couldn't eat outside. It was bad for your health. Jennifer Abel: All these farmers got together and singled me out and said, "What can we do to get Louis Cairo's open? We are desperate. We will do anything. We will make it work." That's the kind of people that's in this community. That's the kind of people that want to see us thrive. And those are the kind of people that we want to continue to be here for to make a difference in their lives. To have that place for them to come and talk about their rice, and talk about their trees, and talk about their families, and have a great time. Jim Morris: You made an interesting point, because it's been really tough for restaurants well before the drought, from any factor you can name, from the economy, you mentioned COVID, but what about the resilience not only from the Cairo family that as you've seen, but from these communities? How tough is this region? It's going to need to be tough to get through all of this. Jennifer Abel: It's going to need to be tough, but I think that we're really strong and united, and there's a really solid foundation of families and people that have been here for a long time that have been farming, that have been working in this community, families that have been here from the ground up that make our community. I think they're going to come together and they're going to make a difference, and they're going to make something happen. Jim Morris: As I look at my surroundings here in Maxwell at an unplanted rice field, this is a year where adjectives fail. Perseverance will be needed like never before for this unique, wonderful, and productive part of California. I want to thank our interviewees, Kurt Richter, Rick Richter, Jason Bowen, Jim Cook, and Jennifer Abel. I also want to say goodbye. I'm retiring from rice. Our family is following our son off to college elsewhere in the West to start a new chapter, and this is my final podcast. Jim Morris: It will continue under great direction of Katie Cahill, who is a phenomenal person, and she will do a great job telling the California rice story. So please keep listening, send in your questions and comments, leave a review, and subscribe. I am so grateful to have worked in this wonderful region telling a great story with tremendous people doing it. Thank you to all who've been so kind and supportive. It has been my honor.
What we're gonna be chatting about on today's episode, is what is content. Unfortunately, if you're not creating content, you're not going to have a business in the future. In my opinion, there is no more important marketing mechanism, activity or anything, than to create content. Because if you're trying to message anyone without creating content, all you're really doing is selling your shit and you're landing on deaf ears. Content Creation is how you remain relevant amongst your audience, your databases, and how you keep the conversation going. Our guest today happens to be from Chicago, but certainly not all good content marketers come from Chicago ;). Her name is Mrs. Sarah Noel Block, and she has a company called Tiny Marketing. What she does is she focuses on content creation within the real estate space. Three Things You'll Learn in This EpisodeHow to stop getting your clients stolenCreating content even with a small teamDefine what content itResourcesLearn more about Sarah Noel BlockReal Estate Marketing DudeThe Listing Advocate (Earn more listings!)REMD on YouTubeREMD on InstagramTranscript:So how do you track new business, you constantly don't have to chase it. Hi, I'm Mike Cuevas to real estate marketing. And this podcast is all about building a strong personal brand people have come to know, like trust and most importantly, refer. But remember, it is not their job to remember what you do for a living. It's your job to remind them. Let's get started.What's up ladies and gentlemen, welcome another episode of the real estate marketing dude, podcast, where we're talking about today is something near and dear to my heart. Basically, the whole reason why I started to create this show about six weeks ago, and I'll lay the context over what we're going to be covering are six weeks ago, I mean, six fucking years ago, not six weeks, six years ago. But I'm going to lay the coverage about when I actually came up with the name real estate marketing dude, I was actually at a conference for Copyblogger in Denver and Copyblogger. Back in the day is Brian Clark's company, you probably know who he is. Brian Clark is Copyblogger used to be the number one blogging content marketing company, I think in the world, he's from training, they're at the forefront number. And at that conference, I was sitting at this conference, and it was at that conference that I saw, I forget who was speaking on stage, but I'm like, You know what, I'm going to call my company. And I'm going to call my podcast, real estate marketing dude, because I was sold on content marketing, but I wasn't sold on what my brand or identity was, until I came back from that conference. So folks, what we're gonna be chatting about on today's episode, is what is content. And unfortunately, if you're not creating content, you're not going to have a business in the future. In my opinion, there is no more important marketing mechanism, activity or anything, then to create content. Because if you're trying to message anyone without creating content, all you're really doing is selling your shit. And you're landing on deaf ears. Content Creation is how you remain relevant amongst your audience, your databases, and how you keep the conversation going. Because when you disappear, you become a closet agent. And that's when they start cheating on you with guys like me and everybody else. And that's what is going to happen. The eye buyers today are are aiming for your clients. Big tech is aiming for your clients, and everyone is aiming for your clients except you. If you're not creating content, you're gonna lose touch, not stay in touch with them. And this is going to be a very good episode. So we're gonna go ahead and introduce our guest today. She happens to be from Chicago, but certainly not all good content marketers come from Chicago, if you don't know. But her name is Mrs. Sarah Noel block, and she has a company called tidy marketing. And what she does is she focuses on content creation within the real estate space. So Sarah, go ahead and say hello, tell us a little bit about yourself. And let's get into this.Yeah, so I started working with real estate companies about 10 years ago to create their content. And I haven't looked back basically, I reached out to landlord ology, the because I was a real estate investor. And I said, Hey, do you guys need content? They did. So they hired me in it spun from there. I was working full time in marketing. And I built my business on the side as I was, as I was doing content for real estate service and SaaS companies. And now here I am two years later. Do you want to do it full time?And you're mainly creating content for the real estate industry? Those that correct? Yes. Okay. So we're going to start this off really easy, guys, we're gonna first define what content is. If you guys ever listened to the show for a while, you guys, if you don't know what the hell we do, yet, we create video content for you. So that everybody knows who the hell you are in your local community. But video content is just one form of content. There's a lot of content to create. Everything you do is content. Like everything you do even when you go on showings, that's content. So once you to find in your terms, what the hell's content for the real estate people?Yes, for the real estate people, it is how you educate and build trust with your audience. Man, I would say I think it's like 70% of the sales process is done before they ever reach out to somebody in sales. And all of that is done through content marketing, because you're teaching them how to solve their problem. And you're building trust by showing them you know how to solve that problem. It pretty much feeds all of your marketing.Can you go back and spend some time on this? 70 to 80% of people have already decided whether they're going to buy your shit, is that what you're saying?I am saying they have at least decided between you and one other company on if they're going to buy your shit. And then they'll reach out to you and that'll be the deciding factor on who they go with.So when a consumer is out there, just sort of I don't know just play in the real estate agents, agencies and say I'm going back into Chicago. I never sold real estate Chicago so I don't know any real estate agents in Chicago. And I'm thinking about moving back home to go closer to my parents. Let them watch the grandkids grow up. And I've sort of went on YouTube, I saw some one guy might like a little bit, I see another agent, I might like a little bit. What would I do next? As a consumer? Typically, they check out their websites and make a check out their YouTube channel, like what am I going to do?Oh, you're gonna do a deep dive, you're gonna go to Google. And you're going to start researching that person. See what social media they're on? Are they active on it? See what what's going on on their website? Are they regularly updating it? Do they have new houses listed on there? What do they tell me about their process for buying and selling? And that's, that's where it's gonna go next. Just like everybody else in the world. They're gonna go to Google and see what you have.Right, folks? Did you guys, let's get out of real estate for a second? I don't know. What's your favorite thing to do, Sarah? Like, what's your favorite thing to buy?Oh, my favorite thing to buy? Yeah,to buy or do and spend money on?Yeah, probably. Buy hiking,hiking before you go on. Alright, so let's just say that you came out to Southern California, you're going out the San Diego area. And there's a lot of really good hiking around here. What would you do first? Well, Iwas actually there last summer. And I hiked up the federal volcano that you have over there.I haven't been there yet. But I know you're talking about I even know the name of it. But I know you're talking abouthiking boots, I would make sure that I have the right hiking boots.And did you research it a little bit? And did you course,you know, I'm on Google trying to figure out like, when what are the best hiking boots for mountain climbing because I'm in the flatlands of Chicago? Oh, I know hiking is normally through a forest. So I need to know what the right hiking boots.You know, we call you guys out here now or they call us back home? They call it they call you guys Flatlanders Oh, thegiant mountainFlatlanders? No, she's, she's exactly right, you guys, like think about it, you're gonna be making one of the largest financial investments if you're buying and if you're selling, you're unloading one of your largest financial investments, you're not going to do that with John Doe, the stranger that you just met. At some, like randomly walking down the street, you're gonna do it someone you know, like and trust. But most importantly, I would say trust. What, walk me through, I'm sure you've done all kinds of research here. Do you have like a pattern that you've actually noticed or research of what consumers do specifically, when they're thinking about hiring a buyer's agent or a listing agent?Yeah, they start, they start by looking at, like, the questions to the problems that they're having. Like, let's say they've worked with a realtor before. And they were actually I had a customer interview for one of my clients just this morning. So I'm gonna use their example. They were working with a realtor. And they were super aggressive towards their, towards the buyers lender, like mean to them. And this person was see seed on those emails and saw how it was and just didn't like it didn't like the vibe. So then he started doing some research for outside realtors. And the first thing he did was, you know, Google realtors in the area and what he wanted, what he did was he looked at their videos to see what kind of vibe they had. And you start to feel like you know, someone when you watched enough of their videos, yes, you get a feel for their personality. And that's, that's why he did and ended up a good experience, obviously, otherwise, I wouldn't have interviewed him for this particular thing.Well, that's what most people you sort of hit on the head, like folks are not hiring you because you have a license in your pocket that allows you to legally collect money on a house you sold. They're hiring you because they feel comfortable, or they personally like you, like birds of a feather flock together. Guys, and people end up working with people that are really just like them, or somehow they relate to them. Because those are the people who remain on top of mine, aren't they?Yeah, and really, you just you want to spend time with people you like. So you're not going to hire somebody that you really just don't have a good vibe with.If you're sitting on the treadmill or you're sitting on the peloton, right now, think about the last 10 clients that you've literally helped buy or sell real estate. And then I want you to look and realize that why you've become friends with all of them isn't because that's a coincidence. It's because we all tracked like people People are always like, why am I drink a beer with my client again? That's because that's what I attracted right? Why am I like partying with this guy? Like I just sold this guy millionaire house why are we like a club right now? Well, that because that's who you attract guys. What what is let's go through some other forms of content. We know video guys, we don't need to harp on video even though if you want to we will. I want this to be about you. Not me. But what other typesof content written right now? Um because they're all looking like my clients are all looking to get found in Google faster. So we're doing a lot of either the show notes to go along with the videos or full blogs and community pages, so that they can get found for those problems that they're trying to solve. So, using the example from this customer interview I had this morning, he found her initially because he wanted an expert in his location. He, he was a real estate investor, and he had never actually lived in this house that he wanted to sell. So he's looking for an expert in Sacramento. And that's how we ended up finding her is because she did a lot of blogs on Sacramento area and the community. So he was able to find her because of that SEO juice.It was a long tailed. And can you explain what longtail means?Yeah, long tailed means like it. You're not looking at Sacramento realtors, that's a short tailed keyword. longtail would be like a longer question like realtors that are experts in x x neighborhood in Sacramento. And then your content will show up because you're creating a community page for that particular neighborhood. For example,when I was practicing in Chicago still and you guys could look at the website if you like it's it's botched now because I took down all my it's all messed up. But I still have content on there. It's called Chicago real estate dude. My number one performing piece that attracted a lot of clients was I'll give you I got ton of stories. One was Chicago closing costs, I ranked number one, I actually had the snippet back in the day. So I actually ranked where I got the snippet in Chicago closing costs, Buyer Closing costs, and Chicago seller closing costs. were my top three pieces of performing content. I had my blog up to 10,000 Organic hits a month, guys, 10,000. It's insane. I even ranked against realtor.com and homes.com and Zillow on neighborhood tours, terms like Buck town homes for sale and stuff like that. But it was because of how much content we were creating. And I knew how to SEO, the back end of them. But the thing that most people fail by is they think that if you're gonna go out and create a piece of content, like a blog, they're like, I want to get 100,000 hits. Sorry about that, is it?No and vote one, it's not going to happen overnight. And no, it's not about that. It's about getting the right heads. So yeah, people obsess over traffic. And the traffic count doesn't matter if the wrong people are going to your website, what you want is the right traffic going to your website and the right people finding you. And part of that is creating content that might be let's call it controversial, not really controversial, but shows your voice and who you really are shows your personality. Because you want as we were talking about before attracting the right people attracting people you would be friends with, you also want to repel the wrong people. So by showing your personality in that content, you're already like pushing off the people that you wouldn't really vibe with anyway.Yep, I do it every day on the show. Like people like you swear too much. Great. We're probably not gonna. Honestly, we're probably not gonna hang out anyway. So let's talk about a controversial topic. So we're doing a scripting class. If you guys were members and clients of ours, you guys would be on this class on Wednesday. But what it's going to be on there's relative content that's performing well on YouTube. And what she meant by controversial this is controversial. Is the San Diego real estate market headed for a crash? That's going to be the topic of conversation, because that's what's performing well on YouTube. Now real estate agents are gonna be like, Oh, my God, that's, you're gonna say the markets going for a crash? It's always supposed to go up. I thought. No, guys, you want controversial stuff? Because that's what people get pay attention to.Yeah. Clickable people are like, Well, is it click?Yep. 100%. What other types of written content and blogs do you see? neighborhood? You mentioned? A couple of neighborhood pages?Yeah. Yeah. And it depends on what type of buyer you're trying to attract. So if you're, I mean, I think in any industry, if you niche down, you're better off and you're, it's easier to attract people. So let's say your bread and butter is real estate investors, you'd want to write content all around real estate investing, and maybe how to automate being a landlord how to find properties. When you are a long distance landlord, items like that. Basically, you want to create, like a content cluster, where you have a specific content piece that's really long like a guide, and then a lot of little branches that come out from it that are subtopics from within there. And by connecting all of those, that's how you rank higher in Google.So internal internally linking and all that.Yeah, connecting the dots. their internal linking helps with SEO. And it also helps your customers that are on your website find the content that they need.And why do you think more people don't? I know from the blogging, but why do you have more people that do it sounds easy.Because it's not, it takes a lot of time. It's, it's time consuming. And at least my clients, they all have small teams, they either have a fractional team, where they have like a team of freelancers that will work with them, or they have one like one internal person that helps with their marketing, or it's just them. Yeah. And that's really hard. When you're creating content, it's time consuming, it takes about eight hours to create a blog post, that's going to rank and that's, that's where people struggle. But if you create systems to be able to consistently create your content, it becomes a lot easier. And it's kind of like a snowball effect, because you can play off of the other pieces.So it's something that you do over time. And I think a lot of people just are instant gratification salespeople where they need to see something work right now. But they won't put the time into it's how much videos you guys. Like I tell people all the time video, always pencils, it always works. It always has an insane ROI. But just sometimes it might take six months for you to build that brand, especially if you're a newer agent. Or it might take one month, you just don't know. But it always works. As long as you do it and you stay consistent with it.Consistency is key it when I was building my business, the first thing I thought is I need to build my personal brand beyond my corporate life. So I mean, it only took six months to create enough of a following that I had a full roster of clients. And it was just a combination of showing up regularly on social media with video and with written content and then PR being able to connect with like podcasts like this. There's a dog in my yard right now just walking by my window. That's not my dog.Make sure make sure it's not a coyote firstconfuse his Dog Mattis. Where was I? Oh, Pr Pr partnerships like being on podcast guest blogging and in publications that your audience is reading and answering questions on Haro help a report a Reporter Out. Those were the first things that I did when I was trying to build my brand. And then from there, I created like episodic content, where just kind of roles like a podcast, a live stream show. It's the easiest way to show up consistently because you have that routine down.Yep. Well, most times, like I don't know what I was listening to this weekend, but I think it was a church to be honest with you. She said 21 wants to do something for 21 days, it becomes a habit. I've heard. Like I just literally had that happen in church, my son Okay, here. Yeah,yeah. Okay. So that's why I'm muting myself.So like 21 days you do something and becomes a habit. And I think what a lot of people don't realize or see, even today is that a lot of people don't realize that. This isn't hard. It's just new for most people. And where a lot of agents traditionally, would spend that one to three hours or four hours a month, prospecting or doing something to generate business. They just don't look at their business today, the same way or content creation around the same day content creation, you guys is modern day prospecting. It just doesn't come with immediate gratification.No, it doesn't. It doesn't. But like, okay, let's say you set up a system where you're like, Okay, I commit to creating one, one video a month. And you start from there, repurpose that, start editing it down into micro videos, see if you can use it on social media, repurposing it on there, take that audio, make it a podcast, you could hire a freelance writer and have them write a blog post based off of the highlights of that video. You can really Snowball from just one piece of core content.Let's go into multi purposing. Tell me how you typically do it. What do you how do you multipurpose content and walk us through that a little bit more?Yeah, I'm a huge fan of doing that. So I have a live stream show every two weeks. And my process for that is I take that live stream. And I'll break it down. So it becomes a series. I'll interview an expert. And we have three learning objectives in that conversation during the interview. I'll break it down so then it's a three part series. So then I'm already creating this episodic content which is pretty bingeable Because If you're like, Okay, well what happens next click Next. And then from that series, I'll take that and convert the audio file from there into a podcast. So those are three extra podcast episodes. And then I'll take those learning objectives that I had in the initial interview. And I'll break that down into a longer form guide that's written. And then do the content cluster thing that I was talking about where we take the little sections of each of those guides and create a, a blog post from it. And then obviously, you have your social media from all of those pieces, that's like 12 pieces already, and an email for each of those pieces. So if you already like 20x Step,there you go, well done. I think I see a lot of agents or even mortgage people that when they create a piece of content, they'll just sort of let it die in the newsfeed. They don't multipurpose it at all. And I'm like, What the hell is the point of that? Like, well, you don't you know, you could recycle. And here's the thing to like, love some people that don't have. Here's another good tip, guys, there's like, let's just say you're doing a video. And the videos you created six months ago, I could promise you that nobody has ever remembered about them. You can just repurpose them and just repost them they're gonna think it's brand new. Sure, brand new video, people overthink this stuff so much. It's about being present. Yes, it is. It'sabout showing up in the feeds. And no, people are not going to remember social media has like a 24 hour lifecycle, so repost use, I, what I like to do is the first time I post something, I post it live and natively, and then I'll put it into my social media automation and just recycle it from there.Yep, I agree. What do you I mean, if you were to pick different types of content for people in the real estate industry, what would you rank them? In? If they're like what type to create? Podcasts I get a lot of people say podcasts, podcasts or video or blogs or just sharing cool shit stories reels, tick tock, which is what do you see?That is a good question. Um, do I have to pick like one that the top there's a couple, I would, I would say, showing that you can solve their problem is the most important thing. And they're going to find you probably you'll, you'll hit the most pieces of the no luck. Try the know, like trust factor with video first. So I would start there. Because they get to know who you are, and they get to learn something from you. And then I would go with written next because you'll get more SEO juice from it, you do get a decent amount from from video as long as you're doing like some good Show Notes Pages, some in depth descriptions on YouTube. But blogs are a good way to really get that impact from from those longtail SEO. So I'm gonna go with that next.And then for longtail you like like the areas are like neighborhoods, areas, places community. What other types of long form content are you seeing? Yeah,that does really well. And around your buyers specific issues. So I do a lot around landlords and acquiring new properties and processes for managing multiple properties when you're a real estate investor. So it depends who your target audiences. But if you're like direct to consumer, typical homebuyer, yeah, those community guides do really well. And any content that helps people understand the process of buying and selling a little bit better. Because that might be brand new, or they might not have sold a house and bought a new one in 20 years. And they need to relearn that process.What about listings? Everyone's always like, what do I do for listings? What do I do for listings? I tell them, sir, hang around people who own houses. But what do I do? What kind of content am I going to pick up for listings?Yeah, I always had a good luck with telling the stories with it that connect people. So so many times you'll read these listings, and it's just like four bedrooms, two baths, blah, blah, blah. But I would bring in stories like the basement used to be a speakeasy or some some interesting fact about the house or the neighborhood that draws people in. Like my house. Like 10 years ago, the basement was an ice cream shop in the 1950s. So when I was at Um, when I was renting it out, that was when like, I had a story about that. And there,that's cool. So oh, well, a lot of times agents was like just listed just sold. I said this on the show recently, there's a meme going around, of how real estate agents market their business. And it's like if a if a doctor was a real estate agent, and it shows a doctor saying, holy and all these, like $100 bills, but I just perform heart surgery. And it's like, folks, people, like, you gotta have to HGTV your sales process, you don't need to like, tell me about how much money you made today. And said, Tell me about the story of the person you help. Like, it's so easy. It's right in front of us. Yes. But yet people like go the opposite way with it. I'm like, What are you guys doing?Yes, that's another thing that I meant to bring up is you can build trust by bringing in your customer stories into into the conversation. Like one of my clients, I wrote a story about how the customer had, he was a first time home buyer and a veteran. So like the story that went along with that, because it was it complicated the process. And it was really interesting, we got a lot of engagement on that. But bringing in stories and customer perspectives, testimonials are always great.Another one you guys can try is like say what the market conditions the way they are. Tell the success story of the sale. So be like this seller, this house, like we had a house in our neighborhood sold a million dollars over list price, like what the fuck who does that million dollars, over a million over list last. And like that I would I would have wrote, I would have wrote a story of something along the lines like this property literally sold. And that's not every day that a property sells a million dollars over list price, but this one did. And if you guys circulate the people who are going to be reading that are potential people who might be selling, they're excited to learn that their house is worth more than what it really is today. So showing case studies of properties have sold, I also seen the flip side work well of I need a buyer but tell you the story of the buyer who's searching for a house in the area, that there's just nothing available for but both of them have a story in common guys, is what I'm getting at story content.Yeah, if you think about it, like as a story, the customer, they always think of themselves as the hero of the story. So you need to make sure that they are front and center in that content and can picture themselves in that place. Like, oh, shit, that was that was me. I had, like, I'll talk about an example one of my clients had from a couple years ago, when real estate was a little bit harder. It was it was less about like you couldn't sell a house. And he had an offer and and it flopped just didn't go through at the end. And how the real estate agent had backup offers ready because she knew that it was likely going to happen. And she got them to match the original offer stories like that, because you're like, I was there if that happened to me. And that sucked. And but she was able to solve it and get the same amount of money. Yep. Yep.I mean, that's what it's all about you guys at the end of the day is demonstrating your involvement in the transaction through the form of story. More people will follow it. But demonstration of what you do not a brag reel of what you do, there's nothing more bigger return off than somebody being like I've made a bunch of money today, at least in today's world, people don't like that anymore. That's just the way it is guys. Any other closing thoughts here that you want to mention anything with content, that closing words of advice for some of these people? Yeah.If you just start with one thing that you're willing to commit to, on a regular basis, it will work out if you just set that routine, even if it's a small routine. And just like my business, a tiny, tiny little habit that you have in creating content, it will add up over time and it will be helpful even if you feel like it's not moving the needle now it willI agree. Why don't you tell them where they can find you website in case you guys need help with your content creation services? I'm sure you can help understand what you do.Yes, so I work with real estate service and Sass companies in creating their content marketing.

At the very bare minimum you should be taking pictures of cool kitchens, views, baths, bedrooms, kitchens, the bare minimum because every time you do you're reminding everyone what you do for a living, so don't overthink this thing, but if you want to step it up, once you start doing things on video, what happens is you get more eyeballs and with more eyeballs because more conversations with more conversations comes more clients and business down the road.

California's Democratic governor questions his party's willingness to engage in culture wars, the Golden State seeks to attract businesses offended by red-state abortion policies, and lawmakers in Sacramento quibble over what to do with tens of billions in surplus revenue. Hoover senior fellow Lee Ohanian and distinguished policy fellow Bill Whalen, both contributors to Hoover's “California on Your Mind” web channel, join Hoover senior writer Jonathan Movroydis to discuss the latest in the Golden State, including what if any progress will be achieved on homelessness, a worsening drought, and California' stuck-in-a-rut high-speed rail project.
Bowen Turner back behind bars. The South Carolina man accused of three rapes arrested for disorderly conduct and given bail, but Turner denied bail on another charge stemming from a probation violation. 19-year-old Turner was arrested on Mother's Day and after his arrest, he allegedly called a female jailer the "B word" and tried to bite off the finger of another. This latest incident happens after a controversial sentence handed down in April. Orangeburg County Court Judge Markley Dennis sentenced Turner to five years of probation as part of a plea for assaulting a woman in 2019. The charge was reduced from an earlier charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, even though the victim was willing to testify and it was the third sexual assault accusation against Turner in less than two years. Ankle monitoring logs show that Turner violated his previous bond dozens of times, visiting golf courses, restaurants, shopping centers and even going out of state.
