Partner support during the postpartum period is one topic we don't see discussed often. Yet, for the partner, having a baby and learning to parent is an equally transformative experience. Partners experience the birth in a different way than the birthing person. They can experience worry, feelings of helplessness, and even experience vicarious trauma. Partners will typically self-sacrifice to support the birthing person. This is often where the need for more focused support can begin. Sacrificing their own needs to support the birthing person. Setting their need for rest and nourishment aside. As postpartum doulas coming into this dynamic requires assessment skills. What does this partner need most at this point? Where are they struggling? Where are they excelling, and how can we validate and encourage them? Come join us as we discuss the many considerations in how to support partners during the postpartum period.

How do you get past feeling like you need to sacrifice a part of your life in order to really get ahead? This is what I tackled in today's podcast. I'm going to show you how to STOP feeling like sacrificing yourself as the leader is the right thing to do, so you can actually reach your full potential and make the kind impact you really want to make in yours and other people's lives. Maybe you're like me, and took on the belief that the road to success is paved by sacrificing yourself. That turned into me wearing my hard working badge because I wanted to show that "I put myself last" because I thought it would benefit the team and my family. Or maybe make me "better" in some way because I was doing what others were unwilling to do. Only it doesn't. And it sets the precedent for others who are watching to take on this belief too. If you're ready to find another way, dive into today's episode!

Billy Keels is a seasoned traveler, real estate investor, podcast host (Going Long), and the Strategic Advisor of First Generation Capital Partners, an investment group that helps high-wage earners build their wealth without working more. Like many real estate investors, Billy started out working a 9-5 before getting into the real estate space. Along the way, he learned the value of investing time in a way that produces the most returns. Billy takes great joy in taking as much knowledge as possible, be it about European culture or commercial real estate, and we can all take a page from his book. We cannot take wealth to our grave, but we can rest easy leaving a life well-lived. Listen to Billy's story as we talk about his travel experiences, his opinions about investing in the US real estate space as an ex-pat, and how he reinvented himself into the man he is now. KEY TAKEAWAYS 1. You can't take control of your outcomes until you take action. 2. Traveling is an amazing way to build knowledge, street smarts, experience, and real-world principles that can help you later on in business. 3.

He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the nation. He has also lectured internationally in Canada and Bermuda, and has trained corporate, government, law enforcement and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions. Wise's antiracism work traces back to his days as a college activist in the 1980s, fighting for divestment from (and economic sanctions against) apartheid South Africa. After graduation, he threw himself into social justice efforts full-time, as a Youth Coordinator and Associate Director of the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism: the largest of the many groups organized in the early 1990s to defeat the political candidacies of white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. From there, he became a community organizer in New Orleans' public housing, and a policy analyst for a children's advocacy group focused on combatting poverty and economic inequity. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Smith College School of Social Work, in Northampton, MA., and from 1999-2003 was an advisor to the Fisk University Race Relations Institute in Nashville, TN. Wise is the author of seven books, including his highly-acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, as well as Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority, and Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. His forthcoming book, White LIES Matter: Race, Crime and the Politics of Fear in America, will be released in 2018. His essays have appeared on Alternet, Salon, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, Black Commentator, BK Nation, Z Magazine and The Root, which recently named Wise one of the “8 Wokest White People We Know.” Wise has been featured in several documentaries, including “The Great White Hoax: Donald Trump and the Politics of Race and Class in America,” and “White Like Me: Race, Racism and White Privilege in America,” both from the Media Education Foundation. He also appeared alongside legendary scholar and activist, Angela Davis, in the 2011 documentary, “Vocabulary of Change.” In this public dialogue between the two activists, Davis and Wise discussed the connections between issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and militarism, as well as inter-generational movement building and the prospects for social change. Wise is also one of five persons—including President Barack Obama—interviewed for a video exhibition on race relations in America, featured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Additionally, his media presence includes dozens of appearances on CNN, MSNBC and NPR, feature interviews on ABC's 20/20 and CBS's 48 Hours, as well as videos posted on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms that have received over 20 million views. His podcast, “Speak Out with Tim Wise,” launched this fall and features weekly interviews with activists, scholars and artists about movement building and strategies for social change.

In today's Startup Therapy Podcast, Wil and Ryan discuss why health is an important asset for founders. Sacrifices are often necessary for every business - less time with family, skipping meals, not taking breaks, constantly working overtime and not getting paid enough, etc. In the early stage of the business, these types of sacrifices are ‘deemed' essential and expected. Years later, stress and anxiety will eat you up and you'll probably be dealing with a failing body.

The research shows there are four primary outcomes in attachment theory, but the only positive one is secure attachment. Secure attachment means that the child will believe that mom and dad will always be there when they need them.There are seven characteristics of strong families, the most important being quantity of time, not quality.

If you have big goals and you want to achieve things beyond your wildest dreams, sometimes you have to sacrifice. However, this doesn't mean that you need to suffer. What You Will Learn in This Episode: - Sacrificing is a conscious decision to give something of value for the sake of another consideration - How to accept that it's okay to say no even though it's hard, but in the long term it pays off - Constantly remembering why you are doing what you're doing - How to get used to having JOMO (Joy of missing out) rather than FOMO (Fear of missing out) So many entrepreneurs are sacrificing every single day.  Make sure that you are sacrificing the right things for the right reasons and you will get to your goal a lot sooner.

Check it out below: [00:00:00] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Real estate allows you to be better at everything else you want to do in life. And especially for surgeons, there's a lot of negativity right now in medicine, about a lot of negative secular trends in medicine with, you know, declining reimbursements, increased expenses and corporatization of medicine, suits getting in medicine and et cetera, et cetera. And if you don't need your medicine income, because you've got passive income to cover your monthly expenses, all of those things become less painful for you. You become a better clinician, better surgeon and better doctor at which I think is better for the community.  [00:00:43] Sam Wilson: Vasu Kakarlapudi is an experienced ear, nose, and throat surgeon who applies his meticulous surgical precision to his real estate entrepreneurial endeavors. Welcome to the show.  [00:00:52] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: You're welcome. Thank you, Sam.  [00:00:55] Sam Wilson: Hey, the pleasure's mine. Same 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? And how did you get there?  [00:01:03] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Yeah. So, sam, I grew up in Kansas City, a son of Indian immigrant parents and like a lot of other young boys at that time in the mid-eighties the Kansas City Royals were big. So I wanted to be a professional baseball player. Tried out for the high school team and quickly realized my talent wasn't going to support my dream. So I had to switch to textbooks and like, a lot of other good Indian kids who did good in school, went into medicine and got into a combined program, six year program with the University of Missouri, Kansas city. [00:01:28] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: There, I really kind of fell in love with meticulous nature of head, neck, ear, nose, and throat surgery. Went to residency at the University of Maryland. And so, subsequently my wife and I started our careers together in Louisville, Kentucky in the greater Southern Indiana, new Albany, Indiana, a suburb of Louisville, Kentucky. [00:01:45] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And we quickly realized, my wife's a dentist and we quickly realized that although we had a lot of income, we didn't have a lot of freedom. And so I looked around to kind of see who were the guys that were actually happy in medicine and who were practicing medicine for the fun of medicine. And most of them had passive income. [00:02:01] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And a lot of them receive their passive income from real estate. So being the curious guy that I am, I investigated and found people who were doing real estate and figured out kind of how they did things and figured out how I could apply those principles to my own real estate investing career. [00:02:16] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: So, so fast forward, I'm now 47 and practiced medicine on my own terms due to the financial freedom that real estate has afforded. And so through various real estate endeavors, over the period of time, I've had friends and family that have joined us and now I help other colleagues across the country to get involved in real estate. [00:02:33] Sam Wilson: Right. And that's such a big void is in the, you know, high-income earning professional space. It's amazing. How few have that, that understanding of passive income. I mean, I hear on this show all the time, just like, oh yeah, that was a thought that came to us, you know, 10 years out of school. They're like, wait, we gotta figure out another way to do this. Cause we're burning out here. The two things you've mentioned there that you saw in the colleagues that you looked up to, or that were maybe ahead of you in their real estate investing journey was they had income and freedom. It takes a lot of dry powder to develop a meaningful cash flow stream is my, it would be my assumption or analysis in, you know, a meaningful income off of passive real estate investing. Can you walk us through the journey for you? Maybe where, because I mean, once we get to things in this, in this business, right, we get income and then we also get the appreciation, play. What's been kind of your strategy on that front for handling the income side of that?  [00:03:28] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Well, I mean, the first thing is you have to have income. And so fortunately as physicians, we're blessed with a relatively high income. And so then the question is how do you deploy that in a meaningful way? A lot of your listeners probably know real estate is a really a way to grow wealth slowly, but it's kinda like a, you know, Jim Collins, I like to read and I'm sure a lot of your readers probably read a lot of Jim Collins works and he talks about the flywheel. [00:03:51] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And it takes some momentum for you to start building the flywheel, but after a period of time, once that flywheel starts going, it's hard to stop. What if you leverage your income initially, and then continue to scale that and let your appreciation, you mentioned appreciation and let your appreciation generate even more income for you. [00:04:08] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: It's time where, you know, you're essentially your passive income can exceed your monthly expenses. And therefore that's kind of, our definition of freedom is, is, you know, passive income greater than your monthly expenses. So it doesn't happen overnight, like most good things in life. But if persistence and patience and humility and always wanting to learn, it's kind of a surefire path to, to get to financial freedom. [00:04:33] Sam Wilson: Right. Yeah. I liked the idea that this is a slow, a get rich slowly game 'cause it, it certainly is. And there, there are some big licks that you can get along the way, but it's certainly not the ones that produce that predictability inside the space that I think so many of us are looking for. [00:04:48] Sam Wilson: How have you scaled your business? You're still a full-time ENT or a part-time ENT. I don't know how that quite works out in your field, but how have you scaled those two at the same time?  [00:05:00] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Yeah. Fortunately, we're in a big group, so I've got 14 partners that help me leverage my time a little bit better, so I can spend more time on some real estate endeavors. [00:05:09] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: It's really a matter of just prioritization and you know, you can do a lot of things if you really just prioritize your time. So it's, you know, as physicians, we're used to working long, hard hours and it's part of the training. It's part of the process to get to be a, ear, nose, and throat surgeon. [00:05:24] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: So, so really, it's just a matter of, you know, when you have blocked time for being a physician, you're a physician. And when you have blocked time for doing real estate, you do real estate and you don't intermix. And so like today is a, is a real estate day for me. So I'm working, working from home and working on real estate. [00:05:39] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And I don't have any clinical responsibilities yesterday. I was a physician. I didn't have any real estate responsibility. So it's really about blocking time. [00:05:46] Sam Wilson: Right, yeah. I think that's a great, I mean, that's something we all struggle with is where to focus. But, you know, being able to do one and the next certainly is key. [00:05:54] Sam Wilson: What's it been like? You know, you started off as a passive investor, is that right?  [00:05:57] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Well, I actually start off as an active investor and in single-family, like most people 17 years ago, and quickly realized that couldn't scale that way and had a lot of you know, toilets and termites and 2:00 AM phone calls. [00:06:09] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And we were, we realized that I could scale a lot easier with commercial real estate. You know, I was fortunate enough to have some significant amount of mentors that helped me. And I've, you know, basically followed them, get my real-life PhD and how they vet deals, how they finance deals, how they put deals together and the entire sales cycle and how they optimize and liquidate those deals. [00:06:29] Sam Wilson: So you worked alongside mentors that were bringing deals to the table and they said, Hey, help us take this down. You know, you guys can kind of do the Co-GP model. And then you went out and said, Hey, I'm gonna do this on your own. This is not a game. I'm calling it a game. This is not an industry where it's easy to break into, I don't think. I mean, it's something where, especially if you're doing large multifamily projects or whatever asset class, which we'll ask that next, but that you guys are into. [00:06:55] Sam Wilson: I mean, it takes time to build a team, to build momentum, to find the right assets, to underwrite them, to, to kind of get all those skillsets. How did you do that?  [00:07:02] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: One step at a time, the way you climb a mountain is one step at a time, right? I made it a mission to just get better every day and knowing that it would take time. So, you know, I've been at this for again 17 years, so this didn't happen overnight. You know, the first thing I did was I read, listen to podcasts, and found mentors and followed them on deals. I, you know, did a lot of work before I dip my toes into the real estate world, because I think the surgeons, you know, we're, we're pretty risk-averse. We're used to following a pattern. That's the way we were trained is we go from one landmark to another landmark. And you do that in a very methodical risk-averse way to protect our patients. You know, you were mentioning just before that you, if you don't mind me saying that you just had some surgery and that's what I do. [00:07:45] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And sinus surgery is very, very delicate. It's, you know, you're right in between the brain, the eye, the smell centers. You've got a lot of very important structures. So if you're not methodical about how you do things, you can get yourself in trouble really quick. And the same thing goes with real estate investing. [00:08:00] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: If you're not very methodical and scientific about how you approach things. So this is not a place where you just, you'd listened to a podcast from Sam, and then the next thing you know, you, you go take down a multifamily unit complex. It just doesn't happen that way. So slow and methodical, one step at a time and just have goals, 30 day goals and make two millimeter shifts in your mindset. And take action but take action in a guarded way where you can you know, work with a team of people who have done what you have done. And if you're humble and curious, and a lot of times, those folks want to help you. And that certainly the case in my situation where mentors wanted to help me. [00:08:36] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And so I took advantage of that and really you know, was, was humble and curious and learned along the way and was able to finally take some action one step at a time.  [00:08:45] Sam Wilson: What does finding opportunity look like for you today?  [00:08:49] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Well, finding opportunity is really building a team. You mentioned plenty of times in your podcast about, you know, real estate is a team sport. [00:08:56] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And I couldn't agree with that more so on our team. You know, it's not just me because I knew that if I was, again, I really kind of just started off with trying to invest my own capital. And friends and family wanted to invest along with us because we've had success. And so in order for me to really kind of continue to raise capital for my friends and family's investments, I knew I had to build a world-class team. [00:09:16] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: So we have a team of, you know, world-class underwriters you know, property managers, asset managers, and acquisitions folks and disposition folks that really help us do this in the most effective way. So we got domain experts in each of the areas of the real estate cycle. [00:09:32] Sam Wilson: Now, each of these individual, kinds of seats on the bus, are they all specific to your team or is it this kind of shifting team framework that we kind of see in some of these deals where it's like, okay, Hey, I'm going to work with Vasu on this. And then the next time you might see that same person working with somebody else on another deal, or is it, Hey, this is all your guys's in-house team? [00:09:50] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: No, I'm teamed up with one group. We are Co-GPs. So our entity is called Apta Properties and Apta Properties is teamed with 37 parallel properties out of Richmond, Virginia. They've established shop that's been friends and business partners of mine for many, many years. And you know, combined we've done over $800 million worth of acquisitions that's been successful in the '08, '07 crisis, the European debt crisis, COVID pandemic. So, we've got a very seasoned, established team that has, you know, we follow very, very, very conservative. I know it's used a lot, but conservative underwriting that has stood various economic cycles and still been profitable. [00:10:26] Sam Wilson: Yeah. If you, if you've made it through '08, you know, with your shirt's still on and, you know, you look, you said, you mentioned a few other calamities that, that we've endured. If you've made it through those cycles and you came out still smelling good then, yeah, you've seen some things. You've seen some things, I guess, on that front, you know, there's a question that I'm commonly asking right now, what are you guys doing right now to prepare yourself for whatever it is that could be coming next? Correction, a downturn, a bull market, whatever it is you guys see? What are you doing to prepare for the future?  [00:10:56] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: So I think it really comes down to studying demographics. So we're trained as surgeons to be very, very scientific and you'd practice, you know, evidence-based medicine is a buzzword that's used a lot. And so in the real estate world, it's really studying demographic trends because demographic trends are long-term trends as you know, Sam. And so we know kind of, you know, where people are moving in the next 25-30 years. You know, what age group? What their household income might look like? What their psychographic preferences might look like? And so we can study, you know, on large scale metropolitan statistical areas that are poised for growth. And we break that down to submarkets. And so on you know, before you even actually look at a deal we spend a lot of time as demographers kind of looking at where we want to go before we actually look at the deal because we certainly don't want to get observation bias into a deal and fall in love with the deal in a bad submarket and a bad MSA. [00:11:46] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And then get caught with our pants down. So it starts with that. And then, you know, we dive down deeper into the submarket, the asset-specific location. And then in terms of underwriting, you know, we're relatively very low leverage. So I think one of the things that a lot of people are doing right now is they're banking on, you know, 10, 15, 20% rent growth, and they're baking that into their underwriting and, and we're not. They're over-levering themselves. The interest rates are low. And so, you know, you're going to 80, 80% loan to value. And they're, they're getting some supplementals on top of that. We're in the sixties in the high fifties or sixties. [00:12:19] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: So that does sacrifice our yield a little bit, but we want to be the players that are going to be as Ken McElroy  says, when the tide recedes, you'll get to see who's naked. And we want to have our shorts on when the tide recedes, so our underwriting, our assumptions, our conservative leverage and picking the right market. So I think if you had to pick three things, those are the three things that we really try to excel at.  [00:12:38] Sam Wilson: Yeah. I love, I love that. I love the idea of, of deleveraging. I mean, leverage is a beautiful thing, but it cuts both ways. I mean, it really does. And that's something that yeah, it's exciting when I hear people saying things such as, Hey, you know what? [00:12:53] Sam Wilson: We're going to take some risk off the table. We're taking, we're pulling back leverage and your yield is going to take a hit because of it. Sorry, but it's just what we're doing. And this is, this is the way we see the path moving forward. How do you guys do it? But the key question here is how do you guys deleverage and yet still remain competitive on the buy-side? [00:13:11] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Yeah. So I think a lot of that becomes, you know, who's the biggest player, who's the biggest investor in a deal? It's the lender. And so we have very good relationships with lenders that were able to get money for debt for exceedingly low rates, almost an obscene rates. With inflation the way it is, I almost feel guilty getting you know, 60% loan to value on the, on the kind of rates that we're getting. We're buying rate caps to insulate ourselves as well. So it all comes down to the team. So, you know, the lenders, our shop as being very, very low risk. And so they're pricing their lending equivalent to the risk profile. And so we're able to, you know, pay that forward to our investor group of which, I should add though, that every investment that we raise capital for, I'm the largest investor in there. [00:13:53] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Their dollars are invested with my dollars and are my partners dollars. And our dollars are treated no differently. So we've got so much skin in the game beyond just our reputation. We have financial skin in the game as well. So to answer your question, how are you able to get, still get yield is a lot of it's based upon your reputation. [00:14:10] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And we're, you know, acquiring assets in the, you know, 50 to $80 million range. So there's a little bit less competition in that space and lending is better. And the risk is lower because you've got better economies of scale. You get the, you know, the high quality property managers. And so we are still able to get, you know, reasonable yield and still get overall double-digit returns, even if rent gross stabilizes to historical norms. [00:14:35] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And if they continue with the way they've been done right now, we'll, we'll do better, but we're still gonna make money, even if we have a major recession.  [00:14:42] Sam Wilson: The key there that you, just to reiterate it is that you're able to get far more favorable terms from your lender, just because they say, oh wait, you're only putting 60% LTV on this. [00:14:52] Sam Wilson: You know, we're going to give you a great, great term sheet on this because it's a risk, a very risk not risk-free, but a risk reduced play for them.  [00:15:00] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Yeah. You see a lot of bridge debt now with CapEx and so forth, and we don't even, we raise all the CapEx on the front end. [00:15:06] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: So, you know, I mentioned our loan to value is 60%. Our loan to cost is in the fifties because you know, yes, we're sacrificing yield, but our, our primary goal is capital preservation. If you follow the science, the greatest athletes in the world are not the ones who played the best, but the ones who made the least amount of mistakes. [00:15:23] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Yeah. So, you know, we want to make the least amount of mistakes.  [00:15:25] Sam Wilson: That, I like that. I hadn't, I hadn't heard that before, but that's a, that's certainly true. I play, I play a sport every Monday night with a group of guys and the only thing that always run through my head is all I got to do is not screw up. [00:15:36] Sam Wilson: Right. And then let the other guys make the mistakes and we will win by default. So that's funny, certainly that you say. That what's it been like? What's been the journey like for you in bringing other doctors and other high-income earners along for the journey that have been kind of rewarding in the sense that it's like, you just see the light bulb come on for them? [00:15:54] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: I can't tell you how rewarding it's been. So, you know, everything I've done, I beta tested on myself before I brought this out to the rest of the world and my friends and family. So, as I found financial freedom, you know, I have devoted more time to my family, I've devoted more time to my interest. [00:16:11] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: I've devoted more time to charity. I get to do the things that I want to do because of the power that real estate, the fruits of real estate. And so, I feel like I'm a much better physician now than I ever was before, because I'm not playing the volume game. I'm not under any pressure 'cause I don't need the paycheck from my day job as a doctor. I found that I'm much more empathetic and caring to patients, which as, you know, as a, as a patient yourself, that's as important as the science. I always have the science, but now I'm learning some of the softer sides of how to really connect with patients. [00:16:40] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And so that's the power that real estate has done for me. I've been able to spend time with family. More time with my kids. I've got we've got a 13-year-old and a 10-year-old. And right now they still like mom and dad and want to take advantage of that as much as we can and have been able to, you know, support the charitable causes of, you know, everyone's got their own charitable cause. And for us, it's underprivileged kids that don't get a fair shake in life. And so we've been able to use a lot of the real estate earnings and practice earnings to divert that into causes that we'd like to. So the long story. Real estate allows you to be better at everything else you want to do in life. [00:17:13] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: And especially for surgeons, there's a lot of negativity right now in medicine, about a lot of negative secular trends in medicine with, you know, declining reimbursements, increased expenses and corporatization of medicine, suits getting in medicine and et cetera, et cetera. And if you don't need your medicine income, because you've got passive income to cover your monthly expenses, all of those things become less painful for you. You become a better clinician, better surgeon and better doctor at which I think is better for the community. You as a patient, you know, would probably want your doctor who wants to work on you because of their passion for their craft, as opposed to having to pay their kids' private school tuition, you know? [00:17:51] Sam Wilson: You're exactly right. You're exactly right. And I hadn't, hadn't quite ever thought about that. But no, you're right. If I had to pick, I'd pick the physician that's in your shoes, not, not the guy that, that has to hustle, hustle it out, you know, getting patients through as fast as he can in order to, in order to meet his, his income requirements. So that's absolutely fascinating. Vasu, I have really enjoyed our conversation today. Thanks for taking the time to break down your business. The things that you've learned along the way, what real estate has done for you, and of course, how you were helping other physicians really learn and follow in your footsteps. [00:18:19] Sam Wilson: I think it's absolutely cool. And also love certainly the way that you have chosen to give back. I think that's absolutely fantastic. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you and what you do, what is the best way to do that? [00:18:30] Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D.: Yeah, it's been my pleasure, Sam. Our entities called Apta properties. We're on the web and my LinkedIn profile is just Vasu Kakarlapudi M.D. on LinkedIn.  [00:18:38] Sam Wilson: Awesome.

In this episode, our guest is Ryan Blair. He is a father, husband, and business leader who was able to navigate craziness into impacting millions of lives. He has successfully created something that impacted millions of lives not just from the aspect of the business but from the heart. He is now in the direction of taking what he has experienced, and what he has learned and bringing it to the world of entrepreneurship and humanity. [3:10] Why should we listen to you? I speak from love and when I talk to people, I do it with love. Love is my energy. My energy is love and so when I speak to people, I speak with love. [5:26] What is the story that progressed you to the level that you are right now? I grew up in a household with low vibration. I had a difficult childhood, growing up in an atmosphere where my basic needs were not provided. I last saw my father when I was 13 years old. My mother struggled with alcoholism. I was dissatisfied, but I eventually channeled my urge to be powerful into a street brawl. I was imprisoned for four years. I wrote the judge a letter appealing for mercy when I was 17 years old. The court signed the letter, I was freed, and that was the start of a new progression in my life. [7:38] What was the reason why you wrote the letter? I wasn't a good writer, and I had a hard time spelling, but I was determined to speak with the judge. What I told him was that I accepted responsibility for my mistakes and expressed regret, as well as writing to the judge pleading with him to release the other convicts out of love. He read the letter and agreed to let me go to college, but cautioned me that if he saw me again, I would be sent to prison. I had to adjust my entire life at that time. [9:44] What was the moment you decide to venture into entrepreneurship? I was assigned to a mentor who was a successful entrepreneur. My father came from a working-class family. All three classes had been seen by me. The poor, the wealthy, and the middle class, which was where I started. I made the decision to become an entrepreneur at one time. I understood I didn't need to be a lawyer or a doctor before I can employ others. [11:40] How was your first business and what are some of the things that made you successful later on? My first business wasn't very successful but it taught me a lot. I got it to about a million dollars but it wasn't a scalable business. I was into computer repairs but nobody was ready to invest because it was not scalable. I was so pissed off that I swore to learn what scalability is all about so that one day a venture capitalist will invest in me. My next business was skpe pipeline which failed and I had to start all over again [13:40] Where did the idea for visuals come from and how did you grow it to be such a conglomo impactful business? Sky Pipeline cut the two founders of vice house and nick started calling. Black mullen asked I'd love to help them build their business. I fell in love with the research guy named Dr Michael Seidman and his products and I thought to myself that I could be a part of this project and help them bring it to the marketplace. I brought a venture capitalist and we raised 100 million dollars for the business. We then turned it into a 600 million dollar business. I must say that I was a strategic and conditional partner more than the others. They possessed strong fields in marketing and sales and the combination of all of us is what made that company a special company. [16:23] With this new venture, why was it the next call for you? I went through a major correction in my life. I lost my mother and mentor to the cold hands of death. I channeled all of my energy into success and status-seeking which was a great strategy to get my mind off the pain that I was suffering from. My mother's transition made me look into the corner of my soul, shadow, and psyche, and I looked for every piece of anger, and unhealed trauma. I spent two years of my life reemerging with some new wisdom and a new way of life to share with my fellow entrepreneurs. I went deeper into meditation, and psychology and when I emerged I found out that I could help a lot of people with this newfound knowledge that I've received. [20:40] As you navigate, what do you see are some of the pitfalls that as your work kind of dials in that you're uncovering that most people do not realize they are battling with on this journey? The majority of individuals are unaware that they have a lot of hearing to do. You know, the way most of us were raised didn't meet our needs• We may have had excellent parents, but in many cases, our parents didn't know any different because parenting as a whole is still a relatively new idea. Most people have closed their hearts so the formula I use is to help them heal. I go deep into their healing, they grow through healing and when they grow, they have to heal again. I will tell you that an entrepreneur's job is to solve a problem in the external marketplace and the way you solve that external problem is by solving the internal problems on the inside of your walls.                                                                                               [23:25] How do you reach the people who need it but don't know they need it yet? I resisted it and then my life got to a point where I was open. So, I need someone who is open when they go through a life change. The good news is that we are always going through life changes as individuals so those are the primary people that I work with. Like we always say, execution is everything. Most people I find that have a high degree of confidence know what to do but not how to do it because something inside of them is sabotaging their capacity. So we have to make them realize that it is not the skill that is the issue, it is the fact that they've not developed a vessel capable of acquiring the skill.   [28:27]  How do people not ruin their lives as they start executing? Your primary job in life is to manage and maintain the highest degree of positive energy that you can. I have to make sure that the energy that I bring to my time is the highest quality energy that I can.  Money handles itself because if you have the energy to correct and bring it to the table.                            [37:50] What promise did God make to the world when he created you? I am here to inspire. So God said, "This is my son, Ryan and he's going to go through hell and back and he's going to create quite a story of inspiration along the way".   Key Quotes [24: 20_24:25]  Execution like we always say is everything. Every great leader will tell you that what you look [26:40_26:45] Capacity is a person's physical, and mental ability to power, and produce productivity to the operator   How to connect with Ryan Blair Website - https://altercall.com Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/realryanblair/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/RyanBlair

He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the nation. He has also lectured internationally in Canada and Bermuda, and has trained corporate, government, law enforcement and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions. Wise's antiracism work traces back to his days as a college activist in the 1980s, fighting for divestment from (and economic sanctions against) apartheid South Africa. After graduation, he threw himself into social justice efforts full-time, as a Youth Coordinator and Associate Director of the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism: the largest of the many groups organized in the early 1990s to defeat the political candidacies of white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. From there, he became a community organizer in New Orleans' public housing, and a policy analyst for a children's advocacy group focused on combatting poverty and economic inequity. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Smith College School of Social Work, in Northampton, MA., and from 1999-2003 was an advisor to the Fisk University Race Relations Institute in Nashville, TN. Wise is the author of seven books, including his highly-acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, as well as Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority, and Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. His forthcoming book, White LIES Matter: Race, Crime and the Politics of Fear in America, will be released in 2018. His essays have appeared on Alternet, Salon, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, Black Commentator, BK Nation, Z Magazine and The Root, which recently named Wise one of the “8 Wokest White People We Know.” Wise has been featured in several documentaries, including “The Great White Hoax: Donald Trump and the Politics of Race and Class in America,” and “White Like Me: Race, Racism and White Privilege in America,” both from the Media Education Foundation. He also appeared alongside legendary scholar and activist, Angela Davis, in the 2011 documentary, “Vocabulary of Change.” In this public dialogue between the two activists, Davis and Wise discussed the connections between issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and militarism, as well as inter-generational movement building and the prospects for social change. Wise is also one of five persons—including President Barack Obama—interviewed for a video exhibition on race relations in America, featured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Additionally, his media presence includes dozens of appearances on CNN, MSNBC and NPR, feature interviews on ABC's 20/20 and CBS's 48 Hours, as well as videos posted on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms that have received over 20 million views. His podcast, “Speak Out with Tim Wise,” launched this fall and features weekly interviews with activists, scholars and artists about movement building and strategies for social change. Wise graduated from Tulane University in 1990 and received antiracism training from the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, in New Orleans. Ryan Busse is a former firearms executive who helped build one of the world's most iconic gun companies, and was nominated multiple times by industry colleagues for the prestigious Shooting Industry Person of The Year Award. Busse is an environmental advocate who served in many leadership roles for conservation organizations, including as an advisor for the United States Senate Sportsmen's Caucus and the Biden Presidential Campaign. He remains a proud outdoorsman, gun owner, father, and resident of Montana. About the book.... A long-time former executive at one of the country's top gun manufacturers reveals how his industry radicalized a large swathe of America, and explains how it must change before we can reduce gun violence and heal as a nation. Ryan Busse has traveled a long, circuitous path along the American gun journey. As an avid hunter, outdoorsman, and conservationist–all things that the firearms industry was built on–he rose to the highest ranks of the rapidly growing, multibillion-dollar firearms industry. But replacing self-imposed decency with rampant fear-mongering, racism, hardline conservative politics, massive profits from semi-automatic weapons sales, and McCarthyesque policing have driven Busse to do something few other gun executives have done: he's ending his 30-year career in the industry to tell its secrets. He watched the industry change from its smaller, less corporate and far-less-powerful form to the partisan, power-hungry entity it is today. He thought he could go up against the power of the industry from within, and over the years had made small inroads toward sensible gun ownership and use. But that's simply not possible anymore. This book is an insider's call-out, a voice-driven tale of personal transformation, and a fast ride through wild times and colorful characters that populate a much-speculated-about, but little-known industry. It's also a story of how authoritarianism spreads in the guise of freedom, how voicing one's conscience becomes an act of treason in a culture that demands sameness and loyalty.

Recap of the BREAKING NEWS of SUPREME COURT OVERTURNING ABORTION   Tim Wise, whom scholar and philosopher Cornel West calls, “A vanilla brother in the tradition of (abolitionist) John Brown,” is among the nation's most prominent antiracist essayists and educators. He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the nation. He has also lectured internationally in Canada and Bermuda, and has trained corporate, government, law enforcement and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions. Wise's antiracism work traces back to his days as a college activist in the 1980s, fighting for divestment from (and economic sanctions against) apartheid South Africa. After graduation, he threw himself into social justice efforts full-time, as a Youth Coordinator and Associate Director of the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism: the largest of the many groups organized in the early 1990s to defeat the political candidacies of white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. From there, he became a community organizer in New Orleans' public housing, and a policy analyst for a children's advocacy group focused on combatting poverty and economic inequity. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Smith College School of Social Work, in Northampton, MA., and from 1999-2003 was an advisor to the Fisk University Race Relations Institute in Nashville, TN. Wise is the author of seven books, including his highly-acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, as well as Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority, and Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. His forthcoming book, White LIES Matter: Race, Crime and the Politics of Fear in America, will be released in 2018. His essays have appeared on Alternet, Salon, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, Black Commentator, BK Nation, Z Magazine and The Root, which recently named Wise one of the “8 Wokest White People We Know.” Wise has been featured in several documentaries, including “The Great White Hoax: Donald Trump and the Politics of Race and Class in America,” and “White Like Me: Race, Racism and White Privilege in America,” both from the Media Education Foundation. He also appeared alongside legendary scholar and activist, Angela Davis, in the 2011 documentary, “Vocabulary of Change.” In this public dialogue between the two activists, Davis and Wise discussed the connections between issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and militarism, as well as inter-generational movement building and the prospects for social change. Wise is also one of five persons—including President Barack Obama—interviewed for a video exhibition on race relations in America, featured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Additionally, his media presence includes dozens of appearances on CNN, MSNBC and NPR, feature interviews on ABC's 20/20 and CBS's 48 Hours, as well as videos posted on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms that have received over 20 million views. His podcast, “Speak Out with Tim Wise,” launched this fall and features weekly interviews with activists, scholars and artists about movement building and strategies for social change. Wise graduated from Tulane University in 1990 and received antiracism training from the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, in New Orleans.
