Judge Bohren made the determination in response to a lawsuit filed by voters represented by the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL), The Federalist explained Monday. Some 500 drop boxes were set up across the state, collecting tens of thousands of absentee ballots in the 2020 general election. Judge Bohren said a finalized injunction was forthcoming “ordering the state Elections Commission to withdraw long-standing advice to municipal clerks around the state that says they can use absentee ballot drop boxes,” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The ruling is expected to be appealed.” Our political leaders used the concept of the pandemic to get all sorts of illegal things to pass. In the name of your health, you need ballot drop boxes. In the name of protecting you from dying, you need mail-in ballots. In the name of your health, you need stimulus money. As Christians, we must resolve to never be driven by a spirit of fear, because if you allow for that, than the government will take advantage of that and infringe as far as they can on you rights as you allow them to. Justice delayed is justice denied: Jack Phillips has ‘now been in courts defending his freedom nearly a decade.' https://thefederalist.com/2022/01/17/lgbt-activists-have-been-using-courts-to-harass-this-christian-baker-for-ten-years/ This is an important article written by Joy Pullman over at the Federalist. “Jack Phillips is an American. His nation's supreme law claims to protect his inalienable rights to free speech and to freely practice his faith. Yet for ten years, these same rights have been effectively suspended by a state legislature and multiple courts, despite a 2018 win in the U.S. Supreme Court. Phillips, who lives in the Denver, Colorado suburb of Lakewood, was first prosecuted for faithful Christianity in 2012. He was hauled into Colorado's non-judicial Civil Rights Commission, then later into real courts, for offering to sell a gay couple anything in his bakery, Masterpiece Cakeshop, except a custom cake celebrating homosexual acts. He's still in court now. His ten-year battle, Phillips said in a Jan. 14 phone interview, “had profound effects on me and my faith. My faith is much stronger now, my family is much closer. First coming out, there were death threats and things, hateful phone calls and emails. There was a time when my wife was afraid to come to the shop because you didn't know what you would expect.” In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court found Phillips was essentially the victim of government entities prejudiced against Christians and other traditional religions, noting the personal hostility expressed against him by commission members. “Colorado officials compared Jack's plea for religious freedom to some of the worst things in American history, such as the Holocaust and slavery,” noted Phillips's current lawyer, Jacob Warner, in a phone interview. Warner works for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which has defended Phillips pro bono in court. “The Supreme Court didn't need to reach the free speech issue because of that animosity and that left the door open for other litigation.” Immediately after the Supreme Court decision in Phillips's first case, LGBT activists hauled Phillips back into court, not once but twice more, again with clear personal animus. In the current case, a lawyer named Autumn Scardina claims the right to force Phillips to draw a picture of Satan smoking marijuana and to bake a cake celebrating transgender mutilation. Not being able to force others into expressing things they don't believe, Scardina claims, constitutes discrimination against LGBT people. According to court documents, Scardina has sought for many years to harm Phillips due to his religious beliefs and public stand on their behalf. During trial, for example, Scardina said the goal of this suit was to “correct” the “errors of [Phillips's] thinking.”” While there is a lot to point out here, it is important to note that liars are hateful people, and with hate comes violence. The LGBT+-= community, along with this activist lawyer, want blood and will not stop, even after the Supreme Court dropped the original case again Jack because of “personal hostility expressed against him by commission members”. But here is the other thing to note here. We really need Christians to become judges. In my local case, having a righteous judge makes all the difference. I did a little research in Idaho, and found out that our judicial system leans left. In Idaho! If we are going to have a healthy state in the next 40 years, than we need to have righteous judges who genuinely fear God. Like I said, Joy wrote a good piece, so follow the links in the notes to get to her article.

The Republicans and Democrats passed about $5 trillion in stimulus money in less than one year. So, since we are in the middle of a “pandemic”, you would think all that money went to all the devastating losses from COVID, medical needs to combat the pandemic, and developing the 25th booster shot. Ah but never waste a crisis, as Rahm Emanuel would say. I pulled out the highlights, if I can call it that: -about $86 billion to save private unions' multiemployer retirement funds -$192 million and $419 million in emergency U.S. taxpayer funding to at least 125 Chinese firms with links to the Chinese Communist Party -Kentucky is devoting $250 million to water and sewer infrastructure projects across the state -Colorado plans to put $550 million of its federal funds toward affordable housing and home ownership efforts and another $380 million for transportation, infrastructure, parks, and agriculture -New Jersey only allocated only 27% of its federal pandemic relief for public health -Millions were used for COVID-19 bonuses, teacher pay raises, and even to cover payroll. For example, Detroit Public Schools using $60 million of its pandemic relief funds to give out bonuses and Connecticut spending $21.1 million on "personal services-salaries" and $2.6 million on employee benefits. -Washington state is using $340 million of its pandemic relief to provide one-time cash grants of $1,000 for illegal immigrants, according to the state's Recovery Plan Performance Report -Colorado put $1 billion toward fortifying the state budget and maintaining fiscal integrity -San Jose also devoted $3.7 million to an "Environmental Resilience Corp,"...and Another $1.4 million is going to clean up parks I dug a little bit in my town, and know that at least three of my local city council raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars. This data is public and you can research who got what in your town. https://www.covidmoneytracker.org/ is a helpful example for this. California weighing proposal that could double its taxes https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/california-proposal-double-taxes According to Fox: “California lawmakers unveiled a new bill at the beginning of the year that would establish a single-payer health care system – an ambitious plan that would be funded by nearly doubling the state's already-high taxes. A new analysis from the Tax Foundation, a non-partisan group that generally advocates for lower taxes, found that the proposed constitutional amendment would increase taxes by roughly $12,250 per household in order to fund the first-of-its-kind health care system. In all, the tax increases are designed to raise an additional $163 billion per year, which is more than California raised in total tax revenue any year before the pandemic. California would also expand the payroll tax paid by employees who earn more than $49,990 in annual income if they work for a company that has more than 50 workers. Walczak noted the plan could deter small businesses from expanding by inadvertently creating a tax cliff. For instance, if a company that had 49 workers earning $80,000 each hired one additional employee, they would suddenly create a tax bill of more than $90,000. The taxes would fund government-run health care for all Californians, which supporters say would offset the costs of higher taxes and would save money in the long run.” One of the best things imbedded in our state structure, is that if your state is going commie on you, you can pick up and move to a freer state. Listen to U-Haul Vice President Stuart Shoen has to say about this: Roll Clip I just hope all these people who are fleeing California have learned their lesson.

The history of Satanism is bedeviled by misinformation, and in the age of social media, a lie can travel to Hell and back to avoid correction. As hopefully savvy digital consumers, how can we better train ourselves to separate fact from affliction? SHOW LINKS FaustFest Sign-Ups TST MN: Warmer Than Hell Filter Magazing: Court-Ordered Into AA? You Could Use Sober Faction Misinformation vs disinformation Misinformation is bad information spread by mistake Disinformation is bad information spread on purpose Bad actors need more people to amplify their message -- they may try to persuade an influencer to spread their disinformation as-is -- or as a “debunking.” Simply repeating a rumor can perpetuate it, add fuel to the fire, and even legitimize it. Imposter content: Using the names, logos of well-known, reputable outlets to steal credibility Weaponized content Content can be used out of context Old content is reshared as new, with new context Why do people fall for disinformation? Because they want to. People like things that confirm what they already believe, and reject information that challenges them. Critical reading of the news Basic credulity – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. This goes double for anything to do with money or products you see online. (Do not buy shit from Facebook ads!) Is it realistic? Would someone really say or do what the article is saying? Would you do that thing yourself? Would any reasonable person? Understand how headlines are written – usually by someone else, not the article writer, and therefore doesn't always encapsulate what the article actually says. It's meant to grab your attention – whether for good or bad. Opinion vs news – sometimes editorials look a lot like reporting. Slow down! Articles (and certainly their headlines) are meant to provoke emotion and a knee-jerk response. Ask yourself, why am I being made to feel this way? What reaction does the writer want me to have? What reaction do I actually have, once I have more time to process the information? Who owns what? Consider who really owns the website or publication you're reading. Who wrote the article? Have you heard of them before (do they even exist?), or read their other work? What do their previous stories tell you about them and their point of view? When was it written? This is one of the easiest to miss, especially on social media. Make sure the article isn't out of date – and if there's no date at all, be suspicious. Who is the target audience? Was this written to appeal to a certain kind of person? Verify with other independent sources. Does the information fit with what you already know, or what you've read elsewhere? If you can only find one article that says something, that's a red flag. (And it doesn't count if all the other sources you find lead back to only the first article!) Read the original. This is especially important when it comes to science writing. News articles try to summarize super-long scientific studies in just a paragraph or two – they could be cherry-picking what the study says, or miss the point entirely. When you can, click through to the original study and check it out – and again, if there are no links to sources… that's a bad sign. What isn't being said? Not citing sources is the big one. But you have to ask questions of what you're reading. Most mainstream news sites at least try to offer a different perspective / counterpoint to the main narrative of their piece. For example, if a politician really said something inflammatory, there would be a reaction from an opposing party. The wild west of unsourced shit on social media Social media is great for communicating with people you actually know – but be wary of accounts from people you've never heard of. If someone has shared what looks to be original content (i.e., not a link to an article on another publication), check their account to see if they seem legitimate. Who's doing the sharing? Is it a reporter? A politician? Some random person? A celebrity? Just because it's a big account or a famous person doesn't mean they're legit. There are lots of famous dummies out there. When was the account made? Brand-new accounts with no profile / cover pictures or friends / followers might be bots or sock puppet accounts. What's their location? Are they geographically located close enough to what's said in the post / shown in the photo? There is a private group on Facebook for Satanic Bay Area that is for locals only (for privacy and planning reasons). People will request to join the group, and answer the question of whether they're local as “yes” – but their location on Facebook says otherwise. Or they don't have a location at all. That's when I go to their accounts and look at things like their place of work (maybe it has a location), the Pages they follow (if they like a lot of restaurants in Chicago, maybe that's where they're actually located), and even their photos (if they say they're from San Jose but they're posting pics of snow in their backyard… they ain't in San Jose). Is the photo altered? Even a skillful cropping can change the meaning of an image. Look for signs of Photoshopping. Use Google reverse image search / TinEye to find the pictures elsewhere on the web. Deepfake videos Cross-reference Google Maps / Instagram location tags for visual clues Check things like street signs, their colors, their fonts, etc. Does it match up with what you know of the city's street signs? Look for seasonal cues. Are the leaves the right color for that part of the year? What does the terrain, plants look like for a particular area? Image degradation: if you suspect the photo's not the original, see if there's blurriness, pixelation that indicates it was screenshotted and reshared. Stop the cycle Don't share a story that might be untrue (duh). If you accidentally do, go ahead and delete it. If you want, maybe make a post discussing how you were fooled – but best not to leave the bad article up. If you see someone else sharing a story you know to be untrue, speak up (but don't be a dick). It is extreeeeeeeeemely difficult to dissuade someone from believing something. When someone has internalized a belief and made it part of their identity, attacking that belief feels to them like you're attacking them personally. They become defensive and work even harder to justify that belief to themselves. The debunker becomes the bad guy, and any facts you present are written off as coming from biased sources. Instead, try asking questions. Where did you hear this information? Do you know the person who shared it? How did it make you feel when you read it or saw it? Have you ever heard of that happening before? Why do you think it's interesting or believable? Don't publicly humiliate them. Send them a private message or better yet, speak in person. Consider what else is going on in their life. Is there trouble at home or at work? These may be sources of anxiety they're unknowingly trying to soothe with conspiracies as a distraction. If you need to go low- or no-contact with someone, do what is best for yourself. But also consider that conspiracy believers are often socially isolated, and their conspiracy groups give them a sense of community. Perhaps engage on neutral topics – go ahead and comment on Aunt Shirley's cat pictures, but do not engage when she starts talking about the Flat Earth. Encourage them to spend less time online. Just taking a break from social media can loosen the grip it has over them. Spend time with them in person, away from triggers like television. Remind them of the hobbies and pastimes they used to enjoy before becoming entrenched in conspiracy. Set a good example. Sharing real, verifiable news – and mentioning why you know it's true – on social media can expose people to another point of view. But don't target your posts at anyone, or engage in arguments in the comments. People who like to say they do “research” are more likely to believe an article they find themselves, as opposed to something sent to them. It's a kind of gamification of conspiracy theory.

Rejection Practice: A Love Story, Featuring Dr. Cai Chen Jan 17, 2022 Rhonda starts today's podcast by reading two wonderful recent endorsements from listeners. A therapist from San Jose, Ca was moved and inspired by the two podcasts (Episodes 268 & 269, published 11-15-2021 and 11-22-2021) with Dr. Carly on the tragic loss of her baby via ectopic pregnancy, and another listener described TEAM-CBT as “revolutionary” due to the emphasis on reducing resistance. She compared the approach to the indirect hypnotic approach developed by the late Milton Erikson. Dr. Cai Chen recently completed his psychiatric residency in Texas, and then moved to California to join the TEAM-CBT community and unite with the love of his life, who happens to be a member of our Tuesday group. Cai attributes much of his dating success to one of the techniques he read about in my book, Intimate Connections, called “Rejection Practice,” because he practiced that technique to successfully defeat his negative thoughts about all the awful things that might happen if he tried to talk or flirt with an attractive woman. He would tell himself things like: She'll think I'm being too forward. She'll be offended and might call the police. People who see me trying to flirt will be offended. I'll be rejected. He described what happened when he forced himself to get 20 rejections in a mall in order to overcome his fears. His stories about what happened are both funny and inspiring. Cai also describes his initial intense resistance to using this technique, giving himself messages like, “I shouldn't have to learn to flirt because it's beneath me!” I heard excuses like that all the time when I was in clinical practice, working with shy, lonely men! Rejection Practice is a powerful and potentially super-effective technique you might want to try if you're also struggling with social anxiety or if you treat patients with this problem. We also illustrated the hilarious Feared Fantasy Technique on the podcast, where Cai enters an Alice-in-Wonderland Nightmare World, and meets the “woman from hell” who represents all of his worst fears, and verbalizes things like this to him: You're assaulting me and I'm going to call the police. You're the last person I'd ever date! You're forgettable! you You're too forward. I can see that you're very insecure! In addition, he meets the “observer from hell” who verbalizes things like this to Cai: I'm terribly offended that you tried to talk to that woman. It's highly inappropriate to flirt like that in broad daylight. You shouldn't be doing that. I condemn and reject you! Cai was surprised to discover that the monster has no teeth and experienced some enlightenment and freedom from his fears. Rhonda, Cai, and I had a lot of fun with these techniques, and hope you enjoy them, too. Again, if you're a therapist, you might consider including these techniques if you work with shy individuals. We also discuss the idea of “Physician, heal thyself,” a quotation from the New Testament (Luke 4:23). We are all convinced that doing your own personal work can vastly increase your skills and depth as a clinician, because you can tell your patients, “I know what you're going through, because I've been there myself. And what a joy it's going to be to show you how to overcome your shyness and develop greater confidence, and more loving relationships with others.” And that's exactly what happened to Cai. He found the love of his life. You'll hear all about it if you listen to this heart-warming podcast! Dr. Cai is just starting his TEAM-CBT practice at the Feeling Good Institute in Mountain View, California. However, since he is a trained physician and psychiatrist, he can also prescribe medications if patients need them in addition to the therapy. Dr. Cai Chen is a warm and brilliant young psychiatrist. If you would like to contact him, you can contact him at Cai@FeelingGoodInstitute.com, or call him directly at 1-916-877-4749. Thanks for joining us today! If you like what we're doing, tell your friends about the podcasts. Your word of mouth is our main and only source of marketing, since I have refused to monetize the podcasts. So our budget is meager at best. Still, this year, we'll see the five millionth download of our podcasts. Thanks so much for your support and for making it all happen! Warmly, Rhonda, Cai and David
Lou is a multi talented man. His rap catalog is astounding and his clothing company, Born 2 Rise, is growing fast. His story starts out rough, but in my eyes he was blessed with the right people, at the right time, giving him all the right signals. His grandmother as well as her home, both major influences on Lou's life, were very well know on the east side of San Jose, Ca. We also got to break down Cutty Banks, who was tragically taken away from San Jose's rap scene in December of 2020 over mistaken identity.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Sunday 16th January. It's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they've built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. Welcome to a new Patreon Producer GLENN T BJORN RANGE TESTS ORA GOOD CAT WITH REMARKABLE RESULTS - Ora, a sub-brand of Great Wall Motors, is going to start selling its Good Cat model in Europe pretty soon with two battery pack sizes that both provide impressive range. - 62.4 kWh and increases the range to 500 km (310 miles). Bjørn Nyland performed a range test in the latter and while nobody was expecting it to match the NEDC claimed range, it actually performed really well. He drove the vehicle in Thailand in quite warm temperatures and had climate functions off for most of the trip, and he drove exactly 372 km (213 miles) with exactly 90 percent. - Bjørn calculated that had he run a fully-charged battery all the way to empty, the vehicle would have driven around 420 km (261 miles), an impressive result for such a small EV that will most likely never be used for long distance road trips.

As of Jan. 1, 2022, low- and moderate-income households are eligible for $5,000 back with the purchase or lease of a new or used battery electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Previously, the Charge Ahead Rebate was $2,500. In addition, if the purchase or lease is a new battery electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, then the rebate can be combined with the Standard Rebate for up to $7,500 back. - Prior to 2022, Charge Ahead Rebate recipients had to earn less than 120% of the area median income for their metropolitan area. The new requirements ensure those households who can most benefit from the rebate are eligible. Those unsure of their eligibility can check the Charge Ahead Rebate Income Eligibility Calculator here.

In a policy shift, Germany's transport minister has now said that electric cars have won the race in the EU. - While leading auto makers have begun to pivot to electric vehicles, others in the industry, particularly fuel companies and auto part makers, have long argued that synthetic e-fuels can decarbonise ICE vehicles. - Germany's Federal Transport Minister Volker Wissing has thrown cold water on the notion that e-fuels will be plentiful enough to allow ICE cars to meet EU emissions standards. - E-fuels are synthetic energy carriers created in an energy-intensive process and therefore relatively rare and expensive.

After the EU Commission had submitted its proposals for this in July 2021, it is now the EU Parliament's turn – and it has apparently demanded stricter interim targets until 2035. - Jan Huitema, the parliamentarian from the Netherlands who is responsible for this area, has now presented his proposals to the Parliament's Environment Committee. The de facto ban on internal combustion engines for new cars from 2035 – officially only cars with CO2 emissions of 0 g/km may be registered then – as demanded by the Commission is to remain, but the interim targets until then are to be further tightened.

On Tuesday, the San José City Council voted to study the possibility of giving noncitizens the right to vote in local elections. Community organizers in the city, where 40% of residents are foreign-born, have talked about the idea for years. They argue it's time to enfranchise the city's immigrants, regardless of their citizenship status. If successful, San Jose would join New York as one of the biggest cities to do this nationwide. Guest: Carlos Cabrera-Lomelí, community engagement reporter for KQED This episode was produced by Christopher Beale and Alan Montecillo, and hosted by Ericka Cruz Guevarra.
The San Jose Sharks were shutout once again by the New York Rangers 3-0. Chris Kreider had a shorthanded goal and an empty netter to get to his 200th tally in the NHL.

A federal jury in San Jose found Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes guilty on 4 of 11 charges in a widely watched fraud trail that was seen as an indictment of a Silicon Valley 'fake it till you make it' startup culture. We'll talk about the trial and what it may mean for Silicon Valley.
(SAN JOSE, Calif.) — In a case that exposed Silicon Valley's culture of hubris and hype, Elizabeth Holmes was convicted Monday of duping investors into believing her startup Theranos had developed a revolutionary medical device that could detect a multitude of diseases and conditions from a few drops of blood.
Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Dienstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.RKI weist keine Virusvariantengebiete mehr aus Angesichts der Ausbreitung der Coronavirus-Variante Omikron auch in Deutschland lockert die Bundesregierung ihre Einreisebeschränkungen. Großbritannien, Südafrika, Namibia, Botswana, Mosambik, Simbabwe, Malawi, Eswatini und Lesotho gelten von diesem Dienstag an nicht mehr als Virusvariantengebiete, wie das Robert Koch-Institut mitteilte. Stattdessen werden die neun Staaten nun als Hochrisikogebiete geführt. Für Menschen aus diesen Ländern mit einer vollständigen Corona-Impfung wird die Einreise nach Deutschland damit deutlich erleichtert. Gegner von Corona-Maßnahmen machen mobil In Deutschland haben mehrere zehntausend Menschen gegen die staatlichen Corona-Maßnahmen protestiert. Sie trafen sich in etlichen Städten zu nicht genehmigten "Montagsspaziergängen". Größere Demonstrationen wurden etwa aus Rostock in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern und Nürnberg in Bayern gemeldet. Die meisten Protestaktionen verliefen friedlich. In Lichtenstein bei Zwickau in Sachsen wurden Einsatzkräfte attackiert, 14 von ihnen erlitten dabei nach Polizei-Angaben Verletzungen. Mancherorts kam es zu Gegendemonstrationen. Apple-Konzern schreibt Wall-Street-Geschichte Der iPhone-Hersteller Apple hat als weltweit erstes Unternehmen einen Börsenwert von drei Billionen Dollar erreicht. Das entspricht fast der gesamten Wirtschaftsleistung Deutschlands. Apple gehört wie zahlreiche andere Technologiefirmen zu den Profiteuren der Coronavirus-Pandemie. An der New Yorker Wall Street rangiert der Konzern vor dem Softwareriesen Microsoft mit einem Wert von rund 2,5 Billionen Dollar sowie Amazon und der Google-Mutter Alphabet, die jeweils mehr als eine Billion Dollar wert sind. Etliche Todesopfer bei Kämpfen in Kolumbien Bei Gefechten in Kolumbien zwischen der marxistischen Untergrundmiliz ELN und abtrünnigen Mitgliedern der aufgelösten Rebellenorganisation FARC sind mindestens 23 Menschen getötet worden. Die Kämpfe ereigneten sich im Grenzgebiet zu Venezuela in der nordöstlichen Region Arauca. Das teilte Vize-Verteidigungsminister Jairo García mit. Unter den Toten seien auch vier Venezolaner, sagte Verteidigungsminister Diego Molano. Unklar ist, ob auch Zivilisten getötet wurden. Anders als die FARC hat die ELN mit etwa 2500 Mitgliedern dem bewaffneten Kampf gegen die Regierung nicht abgeschworen. Hilfswerk beklagt mehr als 4400 tote Migranten auf Spanien-Routen Mehr als 4400 Migranten sind nach Angaben einer angesehenen spanischen Hilfsorganisation im Vorjahr bei dem Versuch gestorben, Spanien auf dem Seeweg zu erreichen. Die Zahl habe sich im Vergleich zu 2020 verdoppelt - damals seien 2170 Migranten ums Leben gekommen, teilte das in Afrika sehr gut vernetzte Hilfswerk Caminando Fronteras mit. So viele Todesopfer wie 2021 seien noch nie registriert worden. Allein auf dem Weg von Westafrika zu den Kanaren habe es 4016 Todesopfer gegeben. Die Zahl der spanischen Organisation ist dreieinhalb Mal so hoch wie jene der UN-Organisation für Migration. Schuldspruch gegen Theranos-Gründerin Holmes Die einstige US-Vorzeigeunternehmerin Elizabeth Holmes ist von einer Jury im kalifornischen San Jose des Betrugs schuldig gesprochen worden. Die heute 37-Jährige habe Investoren mit vorsätzlichen Falschbehauptungen über die Technologie ihrer Bluttest-Firma Theranos dazu verleitet, Gelder in das Unternehmen zu stecken, urteilten die Geschworenen. Holmes war durch die Gründung von Theranos zur Milliardärin geworden. Recherchen hatten ans Licht gebracht, dass die vermeintlich revolutionäre Technologie des Unternehmens gar nicht funktionierte. Das Strafmaß gegen Holmes wird später verkündet. Peter Wright ist neuer Darts-Weltmeister Der Schotte Peter Wright hat zum zweiten Mal die Darts-WM gewonnen. Der 51-Jährige setzte sich im Finale 7:5 gegen Michael Smith aus England durch. Dafür erhielt Wright einen Siegerscheck in Höhe von 500.000 Britischen Pfund. Die Weltmeisterschaft in London war von zahlreichen Corona-Fällen überschattet worden. Auch der favorisierte Topstar Michael van Gerwen aus den Niederlanden wurde positiv getestet.

We finally have game action to discuss for the Penguins! Hunter is joined by 1/2 of Locked On Sharks for this special crossover as JD Young helps recap that crazy 8-5 win for the Penguins. Was the bad start by San Jose fueled by them thinking it was 10 AM? JD goes into that before Hunter brings up how the Penguins were shot out of a cannon for this matchup. They also discuss James Reimer's poor play which is odd for him this year and the continued greatness of Evan Rodrigues. Is his contract the most pressing for Pittsburgh right now? Does he need to stay on the top PP? Why not for the Penguins to come out of the East? They also get into the SHarks moving forward and what the plan is there. Do they need to sell? Have they been a bit better than expected? Who was great for the Sharks in this contest? All that, plus much more on this special crossover episode of Locked On Penguins and Locked On Sharks.

Joseph Rosenfeld was born to be a personal style strategist. He had an epiphany in high school that remains the crux of his work for over thirty years. He theorized that personal style could transcend physical attraction. Joseph developed a strategy that saved and transformed his life. And he has gone on to transform the lives of an esteemed clientele. Clients know Joseph as a "style savant," and he is most called to serve those on a quest for transformation. His hallmark style strategy encourages clients to sync their inner and outer energy. He guides top business leaders with empathy, creativity, and precision. He shares their focus to ensure that they look on message. Quoted in The New York Times, NPR, The Washington Post, and NBC, Joseph loves sharing encouraging messages about style. He was once recognized by the San Jose Business Journal as one of its "40 Under 40." And the Silicon Valley Magazine named him best personal stylist in its It List in 2020 and 2021. In his spare time Joseph nurtures his interests in art, fashion, design, good food, and traveling. “I may never be handsome, I may never be hot, I may never be sexy. I mean, I feel good. So I mean, I got it going on. But what is true is that I could have style. And that style people would know and get to know me from the inside out, because style is about revealing who you are from deep within. It's not a surface game.” Time Stamp 1:27 How did Joseph start getting into styles at an early age? 5:02 Joseph's fashion and style design journey 7:13 Styling is not a surface game 10:26 Discovering his life's purpose from his favourite track 12:17 Joining the retail 13:29 Sharing his transformation projects experience 20:45 Joseph's workshops and fashion tips 30:34 How Joseph starts his day and his daily routine 34:01 Joseph's favourite fashion designer and how he gets inspiration from him 35:55 Joseph shares his vision and mission Social Media Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/josephrosenfeld/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/josephrosenfeld/ Clubhouse - https://www.joinclubhouse.com/@josephrosenfeld Stevie Nicks “Think About It” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-6l3JP9mEg Follow Patti Dobrowolski - Instagramhttps://www.instagram.com/upyourcreativegenius/ Follow Patti Dobrowolski - Linkedinhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/patti-dobrowolski-532368/ Up Your Creative Geniushttps://www.upyourcreativegenius.com/ Patti Dobrowolski 00:03 Hello superstars.

Today, we're going to interview him and ask him all the ways that things we should consider when we're getting ready to go out in the world and be our brand in life. So welcome to the show, Joseph. So nice to have you here. Joseph Rosenfeld 01:21 Thank you so much, Patti. It's great to be with you and all of your followers. Patti Dobrowolski 01:27 Yeah, thanks. So alright, so I would love it. If you would just tell everyone a little bit about yourself. Like, I would love to hear your story of how you started to do this. And then what happened once you did? Joseph Rosenfeld 01:41 Well, I'm happy to share I want to be as upbeat and uplifting about this as you are. What I have to say the story is the downer, but we have to kind of remember that we're all here. I'm here. I've made it. So there is an uplifting parts of this. So I was really beaten up and bullied kid. And that's very serious and sobering. And I'm a survivor of that survived sexual attacks in my home by a babysitter when I was a boy. And so what all that did was it kind of disempowered me, I didn't have a voice. I didn't have a connection to my own spirit. And I believed all the negative BS that all the kids threw at me about how ugly I was and how they other me, they othered me for the way that I looked Jewish. They bothered me for having a big schnoz being left handed wearing glasses, having a long face, all the things being short and for having even what I would now describe in polite company as homosexual tendencies, like yes, no, just my demeanour, my behaviour, however, which way people thought that I was gay? You know, I think that they bother me in all these ways. And when I finally got clear on honestly, like, even if the journey is up to now, like, as of two weeks ago, I finally actually got superduper clear on this Patti? Patti Dobrowolski 03:09 Yes. Joseph Rosenfeld 03:10 Why did this happen? They feared my presence. It wasn't just about my appearance, only it was what laid behind it. It was also why they were attacking me for things that weren't obviously visible, like my faith belief. Patti Dobrowolski 03:25 Yes. Joseph Rosenfeld 03:26 Or even my sexual orientation, my identity, they was really cutting me, you know, down because they could see how strong and powerful I was even as little guy and a could not take me. Patti Dobrowolski 03:40 Yeah. Joseph Rosenfeld 03:41 Is it any wonder that this is really what I do for a living is help people stand up to anybody, and to stand up to ourselves and be our best selves ever? Patti Dobrowolski 03:53 Yes. Oh, my God, I love you so much. And I think, you know, I had a similar upbringing in those ways. You know, lots of things happen, because clearly I was gay. From the time I came out, you know, the womb, I wanted to wear my real clothes, and I dressed in combat gear most of the time. And, you know, I was just always, always othered for those kinds of things. And you know, what's beautiful about what that experience does, is it takes you into what you're talking about by truly helping people to stand in their power as them their true selves. And I think for so many people, it's scary. It's scary to see someone who really is standing in their power who really is their true self and is not going to change that for anyone. And so beautiful, beautiful on you for doing that. So you had this horrific childhood experience, you know, that you worked with, etc. Now, how did you get into doing fashion and style design? Tell me what led you to do that? I'm sure you did that from the beginning, but tell me more about that. Joseph Rosenfeld 05:02 So there was an epiphany that I had. I'm a man with many epiphanies throughout life. And you could probably relate to this, you know, as a fellow creative, that every time I have another like big Whoo, epiphany thing going on, like, everything in life becomes a new, it's the same life, but it's like life at next level. Patti Dobrowolski 05:25 Yes. Joseph Rosenfeld 05:26 So when I was 15, on top of all the tumult and turmoil that was going on, another horrible thing happened, which is my father dropped dead of heart attack. Patti Dobrowolski 05:36 Oh, my gosh. Joseph Rosenfeld 05:37 Oh, now that was like really hitting the rock bottom. And I just wanted everything to end and contemplated constantly. And the whole turnaround really happen there. When I discovered this was the mid 1980s, a book that had been out already for a little while, it was very irreverent. No one was supposed to take it seriously. Except me. It was called the Official Preppy handbook. And I as a midwestern North Chicago, suburban, you know, guy teenager, was looking for a way out, but to stay alive. And so I discovered the Official Preppy handbook, and I had this high school teenage aged epiphany, which was, if I could have style, no one would be able to tell me that I was ugly anymore. That style would transcend anything about physical appearance and attractiveness. And my hypothesis was, I may never be tall, which did turn out to be true. Patti Dobrowolski 06:42 Right, you're an inch taller than me. I love that. Joseph Rosenfeld 06:47 And I thought I may never be handsome, I may never be hot, I may never be sexy. Now, I mean, I feel good. So I mean, I got it going on. But what is true is that I could have style. And that style people would know and get to know me from the inside out, because style is about revealing who you are from deep within. It's not a surface game. Patti Dobrowolski 07:13 Wow. I love that. I love that it's not a surface game. It comes from deep within style. And so you that handbook helped you to realise that if you could project that inner style outwardly, right, that inner self outwardly that it would change everything? And did it you tested it. So what happened? Joseph Rosenfeld 07:35 The hypothesis worked event, so shortly into the whole thing. And this has to do in a way with the concept around personal branding and marketing, if you will, you make a certain number of reimpressions upon people, and they finally get like, you know, hit over the head, like the old VA commercials, I could add a VA. So people finally stopped, like bothering me and telling me that I was ugly. Yeah, this was pretty incredible. Because that eliminated a lot of noise in my head, even though the tapes were still playing. Patti Dobrowolski 08:11 Yes. Joseph Rosenfeld 08:11 And a lot of reverb like a concussion. Patti Dobrowolski 08:15 Oh my God. This is so true about limiting beliefs. They are like reverb in your head, they just play over and over again until you move the record. Joseph Rosenfeld 08:23 Exactly. Like let's pick up the needle and move it. So what was really great is that it allowed me to have some quiet within myself, so I could learn who I was. Now, in 1997. Tom Peters, famously then introduced this notion around personal branding. I think I was way ahead of the curve, not understanding what the hell it was that it was personal branding, but being able to go inside to say, Who am I what am I? What do I really believe in? What would I live for? All of those things equate to things that have to do with the personal brand. And I have to tell you that the great saviour around all of this is my favourite singer songwriter ever. And a song that she wrote in 1974 that was released on her debut solo album in 1981. That by the time I was really listening to it, this particular song became my mantra. It's a Stevie Nicks song called "Think about it" as her one of the lines and there are many lines to that song. I think everyone should go and give it a listen. Patti Dobrowolski 09:36 Definitely. Joseph Rosenfeld 09:37 She sayings your fortune is your life's love. And I thought, I can't end because I don't have my fortune because I don't know what my life's love is. Patti Dobrowolski 09:50 Yes. Joseph Rosenfeld 09:50 I feel that for all of us. Our life's love has to do with our mission and our purpose and our values and just our variable being like, who we are supposed to be without any explanation or justification or action to make ourselves worthy of anything, like we just belong to exist. And that song lyric, the whole song, but that line alone just gave me, you know, laser focus, purpose and vision. So I thought, I've got to go forth and figure out what that is. Patti Dobrowolski 10:26 That's right. That's what you do. And so you did, you went out and you went forth. And what did you find? Joseph Rosenfeld 10:33 So I then came to really understand that as much as I was interested in the idea of getting involved in politics, and government, public service, those things really whet my appetite in the later part of my high school years. So yes, junior senior years of high school, I think what happened was, by the time I was enrolled in college, and was really enjoying some of the special projects I was doing, I was enjoying the special projects. More than I was enjoying classwork. Patti Dobrowolski 11:05 Yeah. Joseph Rosenfeld 11:06 And I also decided, I don't want to be known as the gay politician. Patti Dobrowolski 11:12 No, no. Joseph Rosenfeld 11:14 And this was the now that like the mid to late 1980s. And AIDS crisis was like, huge. Patti Dobrowolski 11:20 Yes, was horrible. Joseph Rosenfeld 11:23 You know, very famous people. And it was just in my head at that point where I thought, I've already come through so much I just fell in, I just didn't think I could take it anymore. So I couldn't go back into being barraged for me being me that even though I survived, and I'm tough guy, that's too hard. So I thought, I really want to help people and make a difference in their lives. And I also just decided college was not going to be my thing, even though right into learning. And I advocated for most people. I made the other choice, which was to stop. And I went to Neiman Marcus in Chicago. And I said, Look, I see that you're hiring, and I need a job, give me a job. And I was the youngest person that they ever put out on the selling floor at that time. Patti Dobrowolski 12:16 It's fantastic. Joseph Rosenfeld 12:17 Yeah, it was cool. The store on Michigan Avenue in Chicago had been open seven years. I was 19 when they put me out on the floor. Patti Dobrowolski 12:25 Wow, that's so crazy. Good. Joseph Rosenfeld 12:27 That was amazing. And kind of, you know, there's more to that. But in essence, the rest is history. I had 12 year career in high end retail before I decided to go out on my own, and work as an image consultant and personal stylist. And for the last 21 years I've been successfully self employed. Patti Dobrowolski 12:47 Well, yeah, you're crazy busy to like trying to get you was almost impossible to get an interview with you. Because you were in Austria, you were in, you know, Paris, you were in Denver, you were in, you know, you're just Silicon Valley, you're all over the place you're working with, you know, execs and pro sports people and people just like me, right business owners who want to change their brand and bring it forward in a way that aligns you. That's what you do now. Right? So say a little bit about what you love about what you're doing right now. And if you can speak, you know, without talking about client names, but speak a little bit about the kinds of projects you're working on. Joseph Rosenfeld 13:29 Sure. So, for example, I have worked with different clients to help them escalate from being at one level of authority and accompany to becoming CEO of a company. This doesn't happen overnight, because competence has to be proved. Someone show up with a strong CV to begin with, they've got to have it going on. Right, then there's also the presence piece, and how is someone pivoting to make the right appeal to the right audience. And so these are all things that I strategize with leaders to add to the competence. It's, you know, there was this, I think they may have taken the drug off the market, but there used to be this TV commercial where they would show like an ice cream sundae or something and then they would show like the human being kind of dressed like the ice cream sundae. It's like very much about being like on brand in that way. So when somebody especially my clients were in high tech and leadership, they have to look like themselves and be authentic and genuine that way. But they also have to appeal to what the brand ethos is of the company, and sometimes even to the degree that they might match a little bit. Patti Dobrowolski 14:53 Yeah, the branding colours and everything like that right. Joseph Rosenfeld 14:56 The product or the service in a way like super quick example of that would be like someone like Steve Jobs, may he rest in peace. You know, when he and Johnny Ivy designed the original iPhone concept with their team, the iPhone looks so sleek and minimal, probably looks like a better version of Steve Jobs, quite frankly. But he was a very minimalist guy like us, not a lot of bells and whistles going on with him. And all the Guts and Glory was all inside. But he looked kind of streamlined on the outside, sort of like, you know, your iPhone could like, write like an essay, Miyazaki. Patti Dobrowolski 15:34 He's holding up his iPhone right now and showing it to us. So those of you that are listening, he's just showing us how sleek and beautiful it is right? Joseph Rosenfeld 15:42 You look at your black screen. It looks yes, me Aki black mock turtleneck, sweatshirt really does it know that Steve Jobs were every day that was his uniform. So that to me is an example of how to really show up and look on brand to deliver the right message. So I love getting people to the salient points of that, so that they do what they're supposed to do as top leaders to inspire to serve. Not a self serving thing. This is really about how leaders show up to lead. Yes, leaders. Patti Dobrowolski 16:18 There we go. Joseph Rosenfeld 16:20 That to me is a really exciting thing to do. And I would say that that's part of it. There are other people who I work with, like my oldest client right now. She's 81. She is fabulous. She had an issue where she almost couldn't walk anymore. And years before she and I met she had foot surgery. Here in New York. She lives in California, by the way, her foot surgeon told her you can walk as long as you wear certain shoes, but no more dancing. No more high heels. Patti Dobrowolski 16:53 Oh, yeah. Joseph Rosenfeld 16:53 You know, those days are over? Well, she felt so disconnected from the life that she used to have that although she was alive, she didn't feel alive, she felt she was just existing. So we got to meet. And I decided that what I would do is work with her footwear based on the parameters that we had to work with and fetishize them as if she was Sarah Jessica Parker and Sex in the City. Patti Dobrowolski 17:21 I love that. Joseph Rosenfeld 17:22 We you know, there are going to be Manolo Blahniks. Louis Vuitton will be no bowls, whatever. But what we could do is take the shoes and make them look yummy and delicious with the rest of an outfit. So I started with her footwear and levelled up. One day, her daughter came in to the dressing room, here in New York City. And I was showing her a complete wardrobe, starting with the shoes, and then everything else from the ankles up. And she and her daughter had like big boohoos in the dressing room, and I knocked on the door, and I send us everything okay in there? And they open the door, and we had a group hug. And the daughter said, I have my mom back, what did you do? Patti Dobrowolski 18:13 So sweet. Joseph Rosenfeld 18:15 I mean, this is like the thing that I live for these kinds of things where the things that I'm doing are not merely transactional, like make me look good. And like, I don't want to learn how you made me look good. Just make me look good. That's a little more transactional. And I do that for people who need that. But yes, this other type of instance, it's totally about having the deepest kind of relationship really connecting soul to soul, really seeing a person and seeing into that person and then giving that back. Patti Dobrowolski 18:48 Oh, I love that. That was one of the things that I noted. You know, I dug around on you. I've stopped you a little bit, you know, on the internet to see what things were said and what you did. And one of the things that you wrote is I study you like nobody's business, like nobody's business. And I think that really says so much about the heart of what you're doing. You're really trying to see, what is somebody about? And how could I reflect that in a way that brings more of them forward no matter what it is that they're doing. And so, if you're listening today, what we are getting here is about you knowing inside who you are, and then allowing that to emerge in how you look and feel, whether it's you know, wearing something that is a T shirt and you know, some high tops that match who you would look and feel like but also how you want to be seen in the world. I work with this a lot. You know, I love glasses. And so this is my thing. This is the way that I express myself is I'm like this is part of my brand, you know, I want to be my brand in every moment. So people realise, yes, you can be creative and you can look, the part of what you do in the world. What would you say to people who are, you know, struggling to figure out how you know, with their look, what would you say to them? Where's a good place for them to start? I saw that you were doing some workshops. And I was like, Oh, that's interesting. He's doing some workshops. But I also saw that you really are starting at the core. So tell people, what can they do, just by going into their closet and their wardrobe and see how can they consider what they're doing when they're putting on their clothes. Joseph Rosenfeld 20:45 The first thing to absolutely pay attention to is colour. You know, when you go into your closet, or when you go into a store looking for something new, you're always looking for you. And colour is one of these things that we are always looking for. If you don't see the colour that you're looking for in a story tend to go right by the rack. Even if you're in the right department, you're shopping for basically, the right item might have in mind, if the colour isn't there, you're out. So thinking of colour is a wonderful and grounding place to begin, one of the things that I recommend is that you look at your own physical colouring, to look at what I call your DNA colouring, even if your DNA colouring is say this with love, manufacture DNA, like if you're colouring your hair. Patti Dobrowolski 21:41 I would have manufacturing DNA, he speaking to me right there. So I'll take it. Joseph Rosenfeld 21:46 That's true. But you know what's terrific is that if you've made that choice, you've made that choice for a reason. And that says something about your energy. So colour is energy, and there is something that is vibrational about it. So one of my favourite tips and tricks is if you can identify the colour or colours that are in your eyes, like in the iris, find those colours in clothing and then repeat it on your body. That creates a kind of elegance. Even if you're wearing like something like a simple knit top, it helps people find and connect with the truth of who you are as a human being. And you might wonder like, hey, what does you know, moss green have to do with anything. But we have and I'm wearing moss green? That's why I say that right now. Patti Dobrowolski 22:39 Yes. Right. What I knit top I might add, it's really nice. It looks beautiful. And it's great. And I bet you behind those glasses, your eyes match that colour. Am I right? They match entirely. Yes, I'm leaving. Now he's leaning in. And you can see that his eyes are that same moss green colour. Those are beautiful eyes, by the way. So I'm really great, thank you. Joseph Rosenfeld 23:02 So what is powerful about this is we may not have the language to understand with fluency, what it is that we are looking at, but we have been socialised in Western society to pick up the nuances and the vibe loves all kinds of colour. In fact, we know from looking at colour from when we are newborns, the first colour that we actually ever see is yellow, and then we move on to red, and then we move on to blue. And then other colours come about as our eyes develop more. Patti Dobrowolski 23:43 How cool. Joseph Rosenfeld 23:45 And even for people who may be listening in who can't see, you know that you can feel colour because colour does have this vibration. You can be around a person or you could be in a room where you can almost sense the colour. And even if you don't know what the colour is, if you could describe the feeling of the room that you're in, or the space that you're in, or of the energy of the person that you're in conversation with. You could really use descriptive words that somebody would come back and say, oh my gosh, you're entirely describing the vibe of the colour purple. How did you know that I'm wearing a purple blouse right now, like that kind of thing can happen. It does happen. People feel the vibration of colour. We just don't always have the language of fluency. So the reason why I say work with colour is, you know, in your gut, when there's a colour that you love, or a colour that repels you, why is my work with a colour that repels you, for example? So if you could think about that there's a lot that you can pick up on. I have a whole system that I do with my clients where I study their colours in a very in depth kind of way, but to be able to do it on your own, you can still start out by thinking through what are the colours that I really love? And if you aren't so sure, go look in your closet and look at the rhythm of colour own and see hmm, why do I own so much black? Or why do I own so much navy blue? Now, you can think critically about that. Also, by the way, and say, I have you know, hazel eyes, why am I not buying things that are in the olive tones? Or the mage tones? Like, why am I playing it so safe over here with black? So you can have a conversation with yourself and ask yourself legitimately good questions that challenge your conventional thinking about your habits. Patti Dobrowolski 25:50 I love that. I love that. Because if I look in my closet, you know, I have a lot of blue, I wear a lot of blue, and chartreuse, and these really bright colours, but I rarely wear brown and my eyes are brown. And so why do I rarely wear brown because I have an opinion about brown, right. But if I had brown, more brown in my I would be in alignment with that. And then I can accent something with the colour that I want to pull out. Right. And so I think this is part of it, that you want to really pay attention to what you're doing now. And if you want to transform and what you're talking about as up levelling yourself, is that come into alignment with who you are internally, and also externally, what your face looks like in your skin looks like like I know, you know, if I put on something that's really orange, oh, no, it just doesn't really work for me for some reason, right? I don't feel good. Right? Joseph Rosenfeld 26:50 That's right, yeah, you know, if you're not feeling good, and something or like you have a huge high energy, orange, the hottest colour and the colour wheel. And when you put orange on you, you might feel small compared to the power of the orange, which is weird, because you're a very high energy. But sometimes that's the thing about colour is it can be like blob, like, wow, you know, can be very overwhelming the thing about brown for someone like you, and I'm going to just use you as an example. Because everybody knows who you are and what you look like for you to wear brown, it would be easy for you to do in the way that you could wear black as a high contrast because your hair is so lightened and bright and platinum. And that compared to the darkness of your eyebrows, which are more like your natural hair colour, and how light and clear your skin tone is, that creates a lot of contrast. So if you were to wear brown, not a muddy brown, but like a really dark, kind of like a strict brown that you could say, this is the brown that I could wear, that would be like black, and maybe a little bit of a red undertone to it like this in your eye, then you're wearing something that is totally in alignment with you, even though it may be stark, it's in high contrast. It's bold, it's dramatic. And that is who you are. So there are ways of being able to think about it that way. And that's just an example that applies to you. But it's a way of demonstrating to other people, you know, how you actually look at a colour that you might even say, No, that's a kind of a sleeper idea for me, how do I incorporate? We're talking about that outer alignment. But as I'm describing your own colour contrast, I also am identifying with like that boldness that exists from within. So if you right now but within and then you look that way outside, why not just go for it? Patti Dobrowolski 28:47 Well, I love this because I think that I don't know about you. But I think that in our world, we become afraid of things that we have never tried sometimes. And I think it shows up in your style. That's where it shows up. So when I went to France and I visited my friend Dawn, she was like, come on, we're gonna go out to the Buddha bar, we got to get dressed up, but you need to wear a scarf and I'm like, I'm so gay. That scarf is gonna look terrible on me. She goes, No, we're going to put that scarf on because it's going to change everything. And let me just say, I was transformed in that experience. So now I often will wear a scarf all often augments something with something that I never thought of before. And I think this is what you're talking about. You can ground yourself in a colour that is aligned with you and then you can be and sort of blast off in my you know, terminology blast off to be all of you are with the rest of you. And in a way when I think about that, like that is what's beautiful about the expression of colour is that colour allows you to ground yourself in you And then from the rest of that you can become even more of who you truly are. I love that. I love this. That was just fantastic little nugget and piece of it now, knowing your world I want to know. So like, what's the day in the life of you, Joseph look like like, what do you do? What's your routine so people could get to know you on that level? Like, what do you do when you get up? What do you do? How do you stay centred, when you're flying all around like that, tell us a little bit about what the day in the life of you looks like? Joseph Rosenfeld 30:34 Well, my home life is a little bit different than when I'm travelling at home, I'm up first thing, making coffee, usually going into clubhouse now to, you know, participate in a couple of rooms in the morning, getting you know things together in my thoughts, getting some inspiration and sharing some maybe checking my email. And then I have calls or I go to the gym, and then I'm on to client appointments and meetings, and so on, either in person or on Zoom. And when I'm building a wardrobe, I have to carve out hours for that. And then like I'll be doing something like that tomorrow, where I've got a dental appointment and a hair appointment. And then the rest of the afternoon I'm dedicated to doing some, as I say Schmieding around, where I've got to go look for things for a client and have it ready to go. So that when I go back to California, the first week of December, I'm already and so those are the ways that I sort of structure my day. So very flexible, depending on what's happening now and I'm out west, I can't sleep I have way too much energy. So I'm up at like 530 Like, you know, put on yoga gear and I power out for a big walk. I will walk anywhere between 10 and 20,000 steps in the morning, depending on when I have to actually get my day started. And I just crushed it all day with meetings. You know, Friday last week, this is for anyone who's in the Bay Area. I started out in Mountain View, went to San Jose did a colour profile for three hours, got back in the car, drove to Walnut Creek, did it wow ration, Brian with a client that was all great, got in the car, drove back down to San Jose met with another client, we tried on three suits for first fitting that was all great, went up to San Francisco after that did some stuff up there had dinner as well made the most of my time came back down to Mountain View after that probably put like, an excess of 200 miles on the car. Patti Dobrowolski 32:38 That was gonna say and that's a lot of sitting in traffic right now down there in the Bay Area, although it's a little improved there. But still, like that's crazy. Well, that is. So you really have to take care of yourself and your body and all the things. So I love that you're going out there and you're getting all those steps in before you get in that car. And then you're seeing people. And this to me tells me a little bit about yourself that you're looking for inspiration first thing in the morning, and then you're going out to do whatever it is that you need to do, and pulling that inspiration through. And I think you know, you're about helping people transform themselves, their look, their brand look and their style. And this is so essential. We talk about transformation here in these podcasts all the time. And people mostly talk about transforming their career, or they talk about transforming their brand look and feel in terms of their business. But talk with seeming that together with transforming your style look, so that you really do step into the chic issue that you possibly can. I love that this is fantastic. So who right now in terms of in this space that you're in, who's inspiring your who you're watching to see what they're doing. Do you do that? Do you do that a lot watch different designers to see what they're up to? Joseph Rosenfeld 34:01 Well, I would say my favourite fashion designer for some time now is Drees Van Noten. I think that he just has such an elegance and such a flair and such a verb. If I get to show Drees to a client because his aesthetic matches their style profile. And the colours are also a good colour match. Like he made it and here I'm finding it for you know, I'm able to show it to somebody that's really very fantastic. I love when that gets to happen. I'm a Drees wear myself, I think it's when I find something exciting for me. It's awesome. I'm also a really big Tom Ford fan. He's just turned 60. So I really admire his journey. I admire the transparency around the challenges of his journey. He's been very vocally public about some of it as recently this week, just talking about the story struggles that he faced when he turned 40. Maybe he never had the challenges that folks like URI faced when we were young kids, but his challenge decade came around in his 40s with drugs and alcohol and, you know, the high life of being super high flying and successful, and yet being depressed. And so, he really shows that kind of a humanity. And yet, I love how, for example, his women's clothing is just full of unbridled sex appeal. And yet for his Menswear. I love that He has this look, not maybe not always in his suitings but in his sportswear looks that I've been fancying for me personally. Yeah, yeah. They look very fluent. Like you might live in New York City. But you have a home and Aspen or I love. Patti Dobrowolski 35:45 Yeah, yeah. Joseph Rosenfeld 35:45 They look very fluent. Like you might live in New York City. But you have a home and Aspen. Patti Dobrowolski 35:55 You have a home in New York City, which now is that affluence? You know, I mean, that's what's true, right? But it could be anywhere. I love that I love this piece of it. And when you think and you know, you listen and reflect and look at what people are doing and style, etc. What's your big dream for yourself? What is the vision that you hold for yourself, that you'll transform into or step into, as you continue on this journey? What's that vision look like? Joseph Rosenfeld 36:24 I love doing the stuff that I'm doing every day right now, it's so exciting to be doing this kind of work. One of the things that I'm branching into, that I'm very good at because of the overall modus operandi that I work under, is working with lawyers and expert witnesses to prepare them for trial, like corporate things. Patti Dobrowolski 36:48 Yes. Joseph Rosenfeld 36:49 Corporate intrigue, and helping to really connect. And to tell a better story with the jury is something that I doing quite a bit of this work right now. And I'm really enjoying that. But besides that, being able to make a difference for people, and being able to do it at the scale that I'm doing where there is intimacy is very important to me. Patti Dobrowolski 37:14 It's the 81 year old woman, right? Who had that transformation within herself. Joseph Rosenfeld 37:19 That's right may sound a little selfish of me. But I want to be able to give 100% of me to another person in exchange for them being so open and courageous, to share themselves with me, so that I can help them. It really fulfils my mission. And that in conjunction with getting out and doing more talks at high schools. Patti Dobrowolski 37:45 Yes. Joseph Rosenfeld 37:46 To inspire kids, to not bully one another, to live another day to envision what life could be, wow. Even if you have to pick out a hobby that you do all by yourself, because there is no one now me that if I could reach one kid, one teenager that needs that message, and to see me embody the success of that, that's worth everything to me. Wow, those are the kinds of things that I really want to do more of, and I am doing that. Patti Dobrowolski 38:24 I love that. And, you know, I remember reading that in there execs and you know, this sports people and etc. And then high school students was at the bottom. And I was like, yes, because that's where it all begins. That's where we feel so disempowered and disconnected from ourselves, because we're not able to live our authentic life there. Because everybody's trying to sort of step on each other to get somewhere and get seen. And that really that behaviour has to shift. And it's up to us, really, I think, as people who have lived through that, to really speak to that and let people know, you know, it's okay to be yourself. You have to bring yourself, the world needs you. There's only one YOU, you know, step out and do that. Well, I love having this time talking to you. It's been incredible. And I'm going right away to go and look at brown because I never did before. And now I really am desperate to go out there and see like, what would brown look like? Where could I find a kind of brown with a red undertones in it? That might help me and so I hope the next time that I see you, which I hope you'll come back and let me interview you again. Because after you've gone out and travelled the world will you let me do that? Joseph Rosenfeld 39:39 Oh, I would love to come back. This is a great conversation. And I feel like when you're talking about up in your creative genius, I think there's a lot of overlap between what you do and what I do just in different ways. And I feel a lot of synergy where we just scratched the surface and so lovely to do that with you Patti. Patti Dobrowolski 40:00 I would love that and I have so enjoyed getting a little peek into your world. I've never been in this world before with anybody other than the person who has dressed me before in some Nordstroms you know, dressing room.

Welcome to another episode of remote real estate investor. I'm Michael album. And today with me, I have Dave Dubeau, who is a Canadian capital raising expert. And he's going to be talking to us today about what we as real estate investors should know about raising capital and how to raise capital for our next deal. So let's get into it. Dave Dubeau, thank you for taking the time at your schedule this morning to hang out with me really appreciate you coming on. Dave: Big Mike. It's my pleasure. Michael: So you and I know each other from before recording, but for all of our listeners out there, can you give us a quick rundown of who you are and what it is that you're doing in real estate? Dave: Yeah, well, I am a fellow real estate weirdo. I'm into this wild and wonky world of real estate investing. I've been doing it one way or the other since about 2001. Actually started when I was living down in San Jose, Costa Rica of all places Michael has spent a decade Michael: Oh my God. Dave: Living in Costa Rica and had a language training down there a company and language training company bought the small building that ran the business out of did ended up doing a couple of what we would call Pre Foreclosure deals down there. Didn't know what the heck I was doing. Didn't even know what they were called or whatever. But they they worked out all right. And then I packed up my Costa Rican family, my Costa Rican wife and our two little Costa Rican kids. And we moved back to the frozen hinterlands of Canada, where I come from originally. Everybody goes, especially Canadians to go, Dave. Dude, what's going on? You're living down in tropical paradise. Your life and you packed everybody up and you move back to Canada. What the heck was going through your brain? Well, here's the thing Michael, we don't realize what we got till we leave it for a while. And as lovely as Costa Rica is being the rather fair complexion person I am in other words, paste the paste white guy in the pasty face white guy I am whether you got money or not in Latin America, everybody assumes that you do. So there's a target on your back. And that of your family now, thank goodness, nothing ever happened to us. But I know two people that got kidnapped and held for ransom down there and thought, hey, oh my gosh, small town Canada. That hardly ever happens. Never. Michael: Go figure. Dave: Yeah, our kids were getting towards school age. So I said, Hey, you know what? Let's start all that start over again in Canada. And so we moved back, but that was in 2003. And then I had to figure out what the heck am I going to do? Right? Because I'd left a business in Costa Rica. I hadn't been able to sell it. So I didn't have very much money. I've been gone for so long. I didn't have bad credit. I had a big fat zero. For credit. I've been self employed for 10 years. So it's pretty much unemployable. So it's like okay, hey, what next? And you're probably way too young to remember these things but I saw one of those late night infomercials but something like this you too can get rich with real estate with little or no money down. So I said perfect little or no money so I stayed away from the course and brushed it off and I think back then it was a bunch of binders and there might have been a Big VHS cassette or two in there Michael: And A track tapes. Dave: Yeah not quite that bad but getting there and put it to use. And I did 18 Creative deals in 18 months and that's that's what I got started real estate took took a few years off helped to up and coming real estate guru up here kind of grow his his company for a few years got back into it started doing not so creative type deals where actually had to come up with money for down payments and quickly ran out of cash and credit like most people do, I hit that wall and I said hey, I've heard of this thing, OPM other people's money. So maybe I should get myself some of that. So I can grow my portfolio. So I rushed out flounder around and failed miserably at raising capital and I remember it i this beautiful deal on the go. I needed $85,000 to close on it. I tried everything that you know people told me you're supposed to dial for dollars, network. schmoozed spammed everybody I knew and bottom line turned off a lot of really good prospective investors. did not raise the money, lost the deal. Got some major egg on my face. And after the dust settled, I said, You know what? That sucked. I don't I don't like dialing for dollars. I don't like networking and schmoozing and turning every conversation into a real estate conversation. Why don't I apply what I understand about marketing, see if I can make that work to attract investors, instead of always chasing after them. So by hook and by crook, I came up with this process that I call, the money partner formula worked pretty well for me. When I was doing those single family home type deals, I raised not a heck of a lot, but probably in the in the range of 700,000 or so for those kinds of deals. And then since then, I've scaled up into multifamily properties raised millions for for those kinds of deals. But more importantly, I've helped other what I call Mom and Pop real estate investors really get things rolling, and cumulatively help people raise well over $300 million in counting for their deals. So it works pretty good. Michael: That's incredible. So yeah, Dave, I think you hit the nail on the head that so many people either hit that wall as they're growing their portfolio, or even folks who are just looking to get started, don't have the capital to start on their own. So how do people How should people think about raising capital? Is it something that only is reserved for the experience? Or is it someone that who, if they're just getting started would also be a good candidate for? Dave: Well, you know, it's kind of one of those catch 22 things, right? So hey, I want to get going in real estate, but I don't have any money. I need money to buy a deal. But I don't have any money. You know, so how do I get if I don't have the experience? Or getting get the money? All that kind of thing? Here's the bottom line, Michael, it's a lot easier to raise capital, if you've got some experience. Do you need to have a ton of experience? No. But I would suggest, if you have even one successful deal under your belt, that's enough to give you the credibility to go out and start using other people's money to grow your portfolio. So what do you do if you if if you don't have money or experience? Well, there's a few different things that you do? Well, if you do have money, then obviously sell finance your first deal, that would be really smart, you got skin in the game, you're going to pay close attention to how that goes, if you got some money, but not all the money. And if you can partner up with somebody else, as a joint venture partner, you both put in some cash, you do all the work, and you still split the profits 50-50 With your investor partner, that's cool that gets you started. If you don't have any money, but you've got some experience of some sort, you can bring value to the table, go find somebody who's doing what you want to do partner up with them, not for a paycheck, but for a tiny slice of equity in the deal. And whatever that requires. If you're good at social media, if you help the person over social media, or you bird dog for them, or you whatever it is that you do, say, hey, I want to be involved in this, I want to learn what you're doing. I want to b e able to use this deal as a case study. And again, you only need to have one deal. And if you do it that way, you've got some legitimate experience behind it. So there's some ways to get involved if you don't have a heck of a lot of cash. Michael: Okay, great. And then so for people that maybe do have a couple of deals under their belt, and are looking to take that next step that are running on capital, how do they position themselves? How do they market themselves? How do they not dial for dollars? Does this help to start raise capital? Dave: Yeah, good question, because I think most of us would rather stick a needle in our eyeballs. No fun whatsoever. Yes. Oh, here's, here's what it's, I'll give you the big 30,000 foot perspective of this five step process, Michael. So step number one is instead of just shotgunning it and thinking everybody in anybody with a pulse and a checkbook could be an investor, what we want to do instead is you want to laser focus in on people that you already have a pre existing relationship with people who you know, and who know you friends, family members, co workers, business associates, people, you know, from the PTA, your sporting associations, civic associations, whatever, you've got a pre existing relationship with these people. So what we do with our clients is we help them come up with a list of about 150 to 200 of these folks, we think, Oh, my goodness, I don't know that many people, chances are you do. All you have to do is export all your contacts from your cell phone, your email address, and social media, all those different places, and then get them all into one place. Chances are there's a couple of 1000 there, and then just quickly whittle it down to people that you actually do know. Okay, so that's step number one, come up with that target group of potential investors. Now, if you got 150 or 200 people in there, they're not all going to become investors, of course, but typically, there's a significant number in there. And what we find with our clients is there's usually between one and $2 million, where the capital within your sphere of influence already, we just have to figure out who's got it, and how can we get them to get ready, willing and able to invest with us, right, so So the good news here is when we focus on this prediction thing group of people that you have that relationship with, you got two out of the three things you need taken care of. In order for somebody to invest with you, they need to know you like you and trust you, this group of people, they already know you. Hopefully they already like you. And they might trust you to babysit the house or the dog for the weekend, but not their 100 grand. But we can work on that. Does that make sense? So we got two out of the three taken care of there. Plus, this really helps you keep compliant with your local securities regulators. So I'm up here in Canada, we've got our own our own securities regulators are no nicer than the SEC, just as nasty. You guys in the state, you got the Securities Exchange Commission, I believe each state has some sort of regulatory body as well. So we got a double whammy. But bottom line is, there's this area that we are allowed to play in. And that is with good people that we have that pre existing relationship with. So let's start with him there. And then, instead of doing what Dumb Dumb Dave did, which is just charging in, like a bull in a china shop and saying, Hey, it's Dave, I got deals, you got cash. Let's be a little classier about it. So Let's reconnect with that target group of people on a personal level first, before we start talking business. Does that make sense, Michael? Michael: Absolutely. Dave: So what we do is we do a very simple, automated, partially automated, Warm Up campaign. So we we do this by email, we can set this all up in a CRM system, so it goes out all at the same time. And then your job is when people reply back to you actually have a genuine reconnection go back and forth a little bit by email with them, because there is capital in those connections. Plus, if you do it, right, it sets the stage for everything that's going to be coming down with the other four steps in this process. Does that making sense coming up with that target group of people first, Michael? Michael: Yep. With you so far? Dave: Yeah. All right, then the second step is now that we got this target group, and now we kind of broken the ice with them. Some of those people might actually put up their hand and say, Hey, Michael, this real estate thing sounds kind of interesting. Why don't you tell me a little bit about it. So now we got to be ready to have an effective investor meeting, right? Most people don't have the faintest clue about how to present their investment opportunities to a non real estate person, like we can get together realtors, and real estate investment clubs. And we could all nerd out and talk ROI. And you know, IRR is and analyze and all this kind of jargon, that the average person they're going to zone out. They're going to feel dumb, and they're going to shut down right? So we got to make sure that we've got a good I recommend a slideshow presentation like a PowerPoint or Keynote or whatever Google slides that walks people through at Reader's Digest level, about what you're doing with real estate. So what does Reader's Digest level mean? Well, that Reader's Digest is a magazine still exists, that's written for grownups, however, it's written at a 13 year old comprehension level. Right? So any average great 8er can pick up this, this magazine and read it and understand everything, okay? We want to do the same thing for our investor presentation. Not that your investors are dumb. They're just not real estate weirdos like us. So we got to, we got to dumb it down for them, we got to keep it really simple. We got to keep it focused on what's in it for them. We got to go through what our process is, what the pros are, what the cons are the rewards, the risks, how we mitigate those risks, overcome objections, answer all their questions, and do this in a fairly short presentation that you can go through with somebody at a coffee shop, or on Zoom or what have you, and about 25 to 30 minutes, with a lot of q&a in between there. So step number two is creating what we call your million dollar investor presentation, and being ready, willing and able to use it. So that's step number one, come up with a list. Step number two, create this presentation and get comfortable using it. Step number three is where we really kick things into gear with a marketing, constant and consistent communication. This all starts with having an investor focused website. So having a website that's completely focused on communicating with your prospective investors. And this is gonna be your online marketing hub, all your all of your marketing is going to be there it's going to be we're going to be attracting people to your site via email marketing. We're going to get them to consume your your edutainment communication, we're going to be keeping in touch with them at least on a weekly basis. Some of the things that are working really well for our clients these days are our video logs, short, little three, four minute video snippets. They're kind of again, edutainment a little bit educational, not too much. Hopefully a little bit entertaining, and with a clear call to action Hey, you'd like to find out more about this go ahead, click on the button below book a call. Let's see if this makes sense for you. So video logs, blog posts, short little articles again, keeping them entertaining, easy scenes, electronic newsletters, one So every single week, they're getting something different from you. That's educating them a little bit, hopefully entertaining them a little bit, and encouraging them to reach out to you instead of you chasing after them. You follow along with me here, Michael. Michael: Gotcha. Dave: Yeah. So this is what we do to get things rolling. So that you get inbound investor inquiries instead of having to chase after the investor. So this is getting people to self identify, put up their hand and say, Hey, this real estate thing, Michael, it looks kind of cool. I'd like to find out more. And then that conversation is a complete 180 from us chasing them down, picking up the phone, dialing for dollars, schmoozing, turning every conversation into real estate conversation. This way, we're peeking curiosity, we're peaking interest, and we're getting them to reach out to us. So that is, I believe that was step number three of this, this five step process. Yeah. And then step number four, is being seen as trustworthy being seen as a real estate authority in the eyes of our target group of a couple of 100 prospective investors. So here's the good news, Michael, you don't have to be the next, you know, Robert Kiyosaki, and sell a gazillion purple books to be happy, you know, Michael, with his own podcast and all this kind of this kind of platform, there's lots of simple ways that you can do this. And again, we really want to work out, we've already got the know factor that these people already know us, they like us, now we have to work on that trust factor. So it's about being seen as knowing what the heck you're doing with real estate. So a lot of the marketing stuff that you're doing the website, all of that stuff that's going to set you up that's going to set you up for success, it's going to make you look like a professional. Other things you can do. Dress up a little bit. Alright. So if you're meeting with somebody, and you're talking with them about investing with you, I highly encourage you to, you know, gentlemen, put on the blazer, dress business casual, right, it's going to show the other person respect. And even if, if your aunt Hilda used to change your diapers when you're a baby, you're going to get a little bit of respect from them as well because you have you have dressed the part does that make sense? talk intelligently about your strategy. talk intelligently about your market, have sharp looking materials. Don't go cheap on the business cards. Get some good looking business cards. Invest in in some headshots, professional headshots, not the Walmart ones, not the selfies, professional headshots, things like that go along way to, you know, inexpensive ways to be seen as an authority in your field. Michael: Message received Dave me over here on my T shirt as we're recording this podcast. Dave: Well I'm not giving you money here! Michael: Okay, good, good, good, good. Dave: All right, then step number five before I forget, because I get kind of forgetful in my old age. Step number five, is all about starting the snowball effect. And Michael, I'm sure you've seen this because you've been in the game for a while, right? Is once you've got an investor on board, and you're doing a good job for them, it's so much easier to get more of them because these people tend to know other people with money. If we're proactive about it, we can get really good testimonials from them. My favorite are video testimonials. You can use them all sorts of different ways you can create written testimonials from them. So video testimonials are great and warm introductions to their sphere to their people, right. So if you're doing a good job and you're proactive about it, it's very, very easy to start growing your investor base with that second ring of people that your investors know. So that in a nutshell is the five step money partner formula. Start with a target group of prospective investors and break the ice with them first, have your second step is have your investor presentation ready to go. So when people do put up their hand you you don't panic like a deer in the headlights. Step number three kick things into gear with the marketing constant consistent edutaining marketing coming out on a weekly basis, something different every single week with a clear call to action. Hey, if you'd like to find out more, click on the button book a call. And let's have a chat. See if this can make sense for you. Step number four kick things into gear with your credibility be seen as an expert authority. In the eyes again, of your target group of investors is Step five, once you got one or two investors on board, start the snowball effect with referrals and testimonials. Oh, my goodness, I've spoken so fast. Like My cheeks hurt. Dave: No, that's great, David and it's it makes so much sense that it's interesting to kind of sit back and see the true marketing effect because I never would have thought the two the two go hand in hand which is really interesting to see. Dave: Well you know I'm a marketer from way back and and any time you can get somebody to self identify it or reach out to you. That means that persons already coming to you, to a certain extent pre educated they are to another certain extent pre-qualified They're already predisposed to invest with you, because they see you as the logical choice. They see you as the expert. So if you get all this stuff, right, it works like gangbusters. Michael: I love it. One question I have for you, Dave is with regard to step one. So one of the many things that I hear from a lot of folks that joined the Roofstock Academy is I don't know anyone in my sphere that is interested in investing in real estate. Everyone I talked to about it thinks I'm crazy. My parents, my cousins, my family, they all poopoo it. So what do you have to say to those folks that really don't know anybody that would be interested in investing in real estate within that first sphere? Dave: I would say, bologna. I'd say something else. Let's let's keep it PG. Here's what happened. Here's what happened in that scenario, Michael, is the person has run out like a crazy person said, Hey, I'm doing this real estate thing. It's great. It's awesome. You should do with me. Have you got any money? All right, that's maybe not that tacky. But that's kind of how they're coming across. They're coming across like a network marketer. You know what I mean? Right? Michael: Yeah, absolutely. Dave: They are coming across as an MLM, or it. And it just seems like another one of these things, maybe it's a phase they're going through, or whatever. So you can't blame people for being a little bit cautious. If you come in that strong that way. That's, that's what I did back in the day. That's why I can, I can joke about it, because this guy did the exact same thing, right, with disastrous results. So it's not that your friends and family members are interested or can't be educated into becoming interested, it's just that you tried to ram it down their throats in a clumsy fashion, right, versus educating people, creating that curiosity, getting them to put up their hand, take baby steps, and go in that way. Because here's the thing, right? If you do this, right, if you do this process, right, you're gonna be able to accomplish two things, you're gonna be able to get the low hanging financial fruit, and get your first few investors in as little as four to six weeks. That's, that's quite common. But here's the beautiful thing, if you keep things rolling, those first few investors only represent about literally the tip of the iceberg, because that might represent the top 10 to 15% of all of the capital that you can raise from your contacts, the other 85%, it's going to take them a little bit of time to get comfortable and confident and be ready, willing and invest, ready, willing and able to invest with you at that time. So that might take six months for some folks, 12 months for other folks 18 to 24 months for other people. So that's why the constant consistent communication is so important. Because you're going to be able to do both, you're gonna be able to get the the quick capital and the long term capital. And if you're in real estate for the long term, you'll want both because the lion's share comes over time. So again, if you've, if you think you've tapped out your friends and family, and nobody has any interest, or everybody you know, is broke, I'm going to gently suggest you're you're wrong. And just statistically speaking, I mean, I don't know if you, you're familiar with the book, The Millionaire Next Door? Have you heard of that book? Michael: Yeah. Dave: Yeah, they wrote this book a while ago. And they studied millionaires in North American, they found out the vast majority of millionaires don't look like Hollywood says millionaires. You'd look they are right, hanging out on yachts, with bikini clad babes decorated with jewelry and all this kind of make it rain with dollar bills all over the place. That ain't there everyday people living in everyday houses driving everyday vehicles, who happen to be extremely good with their money. That's why they've got it right so yeah. Don't assume that's the biggest, you know, danger. A lot of people have they assume nobody has any money. They assume that the people are all flash, you've got cash, it's quite often not the case. Right? They're all flash. And that's, that's about it. So never make assumptions. If you haven't been successful in raising capital from friends and family yet. It's because you don't know how to do it properly. Don't Don't don't think it doesn't work. You just don't know how to work it yet. And then here's the other thing, we have to sit back and we have to look at Mike, we have to, you know, I'm going to splash some cold water on people here. Because I see this all the time. Well, you know, I don't want to raise money from my friends and family. You know, I've heard neither a borrower nor a lender be don't mix friendship and family with with business. Right? And you're right. If you do it wrong, it can be a recipe for disaster if you do it right. It's absolutely no problem. But here's we got to be logical when you're first starting to work with investors, who the heck else is going to invest with you? Quite frankly, I know you don't have a track record working with them. Why would an accredited investor even give you the time of day? If you don't have a track record? So where else are you going to get started? Nowhere else right? It's that's that's the rock bottom reality. So you got two choices. You can continue to sell finance your deals, and save up money for down payments and deals and and do onesie twosie deals every five to 10 years. Or you can tap into your sphere of influence, and really crank things into gear and start raising capital and doing a lot more deals. And here's the other thing. We need to get our heads around the fact that it's not them doing us a favor. Right? We think our investor partners are doing us in this huge favor by investing with us. But yeah, they are. But it goes two ways. We're helping them do something they cannot or will not do on their own which is investing in real property. And the statistic I've heard out Michael, and take it for what it's worth, right statistics, the statistic I've heard is that 5% of the general population has invested in a revenue property, only 5%. Okay. So again, we hang out with our real estate weirdo. So we think everybody invests in real estate, your house doesn't count, by the way. So only 5% is actually invested in a revenue property. So if you've got one successful deal under your belt, chances are, you're ahead of 95% of the non real estate people that you know, in your sphere, so it's up to us, to show people educate people about what we're up to, and offer them the opportunity without being salesy without being high pressure, without twisting anybody's arm without cold calling. Put it out there, educate them, get the people to self identify come to you. And I tell you what, it works really, really well. Michael: I love it. Dave, I'm curious to get your thoughts and your teachings on how you structure partnerships in terms of percentage percentage ownership. So that's a question I get all the time in the academy. Dave: So again, what kind of deals are we talking about here? Give me an example. Michael: Let's talk about a five unit multifamily property. A small multifamily property, let's call it 300,000. Dave: So $300,000, so all in let's, let's say we need about $80,000 to get into this deal, maybe do 100 With a few rentals and stuff like that? Yeah. Okay. So that might be one or two investor partners on board. And I won't talk about how you structure this, if you're going to do it in a in a corporate structure, why not? I'll just talk about numbers, Michael: generalities. Yeah, Dave: for those kinds of small deals, I would suggest 50-50. Okay, so your investor partners bring the capital, ideally, in these kind of small deals, they're even bringing the qualifications for the financing to the table, that may or may not be necessary in this particular situation, but they're coming on board as joint venture partners, their responsibility is to bring the cash and the credit, your responsibility is to do all the work. Alright, and then you share the profits 50-50, after they are covered first. Does that make sense? So they're, their capital is assured first, if you're gonna be doing a refi on this property, you're going to be selling whatever it is, they get paid first, and then you split the rest 50-50. Okay. Same thing with the cash flow, you're splitting the covering all of the expenses, and you're sharing the cash flow 50-50. So that's probably the simplest way to do it for smaller deals. Michael: Okay. And as the deal size goes up, are you thinking that the cash partners should be getting more or less of the percentage of the deal. Dave: Typically, the larger the deal, the larger number of investor partners you're going to have on board, you're probably going to start syndicating things. And in that case, you're probably going to have to take a smaller percentage of ownership and profit in the deal. Give more to your investor partners, just to get them the kind of ROI that they need to make it attractive. Michael: Dave, this has been great man, you have a training course. And I know you've written a book, can you tell us a little bit about what where those are, where people can find out more about them and you? Dave: Sure so I got this book back here called Money partner formula, you can get a PDF copy of that. My treat in exchange for your name and your email address, just go to my website, moneypartnerformula.com. You can poke around there, see what we're up to.
