On KIDFUN AND MORE Sharla Feldscher shares Alex Souponetsky, the General Manager of Fly Legacy Aviation, a preeminent flight school in the Philadelphia region that offers FAA certified programs for professional as well as recreational pilots. A 3rd generation aviator, Alex is passionate about growing the awareness especially among the young people of all the possibilities the aviation industry currently offers. Due to a global pilot shortage, the economics are now on the pilots' side, with high and rising salaries based on historic levels and compare to other occupations. Students can start their flight training at a very early age and progress at their own pace, skipping college and going straight to the airlines. Certainly, being a pilot is not for everyone, but for that unique 1-2% of us that it is, now is an amazing time to become one. Get your copy of KIDFUN: 401 Easy Ideas for Play.

Stacy Johnson is a TV and film working actor, singer, director, producer, and stunt woman. Her acting career began at the age of 4 on Sesame Street and has blossomed to include high profile projects like “Heroes,” “Ozark,” “The Greatest Showman,” “Halloween,” and “Iron Man” movies. She has produced and won awards for her documentary films “Hursit” and “The Sun Sets.” As a successful actress, Ms. Johnson has taught students on acting and in furthering their careers. She and her husband Scott Dukelow manage SJD Acting Studio that coaches students on acting and the film industry. Ms. Johnson's Lyme disease journey began with a tick bite in 2005. Despite developing classic Lyme disease symptoms and working with scores of the top doctors in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and North Carolina, she was not diagnosed until after more than a decade of suffering. Prior to securing a Lyme disease diagnosis, she suffered from migrating neurological and cardiac symptoms. In 2015 she had to be resuscitated by emergency service personnel after her heart stopped during a visit to a McDonald's restaurant in Chicago. Desperate for answers for her health crisis, Ms. Johnson visited Dr. Jeffrey Lawson, MD at the Piedmont Arthritis Clinic located in South Carolina. Working with Ms. Johnson and her husband, Dr. Lawson diagnosed and treated Ms. Johnson for Lyme disease. The lengthy and painful encounter with Lyme disease inspired Ms. Johnson, Mr. Dukelow, and Dr. Lawson to tell their story on film. The documentary “Lyme Disease: Beating Back Death” is slated to complete filming and to be released on Netflix later this year. If you would like to learn more about how an actor and her team beat back death secondary to Lyme disease, then tune in now!

In the opening segment, Ben Burgis and the GTAA crew talk about a Tennessee lawmaker's strange use of Hitler in an argument about the homeless, watch a video about Tucker Carlson's demagoguery and get into Christian Smalls's masterful appearance on Tucker's show. The main event is an interview with Jacobin staff writer Luke Savage about his article "The Republican Party Is Waging a War Against Personal Freedom and Free Expression." Continuing with the free speech theme, Ben and his wife Dr. Jennifer Burgis talk about Plato's apology in the philosophy segment at the end of the main show. Finally, Current Affairs writer Dan Walden hangs out in the postgame for GTAA patrons where we try very hard to make sense of James Lindsay's demented diagram about Hegel, Marx and "leftism"--and finally watch that previously promised libertarian take on Sesame Street. It's an extremely good time all around.Read Luke's article in Jacobin here:https://jacobinmag.com/2022/03/gop-texas-florida-trans-youth-crt-censorshipIndependent creators rely on your support to create the content you want!

According to the most recent statistics, under 400,000 people live in Orleans Parish. In a regular year, around 19 million people come to visit us. These tourists spend a total of close to $10B. This reportedly contributes a massive 40% of the city's annual tax revenue. Is having a tourist-dependent economy good for us? Or bad for us? Well, that depends who you ask. Many people who work in hospitality point out that their jobs are poorly-paid, with few if any benefits. There's no job security. And they claim that a tourist-based economy traps them - and the city - in a cycle of poverty that does nothing but perpetuate a glaring wealth gap. On the other hand, people in organizations that promote New Orleans tourism – whose incomes are typically substantially larger than hospitality workers - claim tourism is vital. They say that without tourism our individual taxes would have to increase by thousands of dollars a year, and our entire city economy would be strained to the point of collapse. Which side of this argument is true? Petr Ricchiuti puts that question to Dr. Andrew Ward. Dr. Ward is an Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Development at Tulane University, and he specializes in a branch of practical study called Sustainable Tourism. In 2018 we introduced you to Allison Albert Ward. At that time, Allison had quit her job as an accountant and founded a company called Pet Krewe, making costumes for pets. That has turned out to be a good move. Today, Pet Krewe's costumes are sold in 600 independent stores and several mass retailers in the United States. They're also sold internationally. Outside of China, Pet Krewe is the biggest pet costume company in the world. But, even after achieving world domination, Pet Krewe is not slowing down. They've formed partnerships with Hasbro, Sesame Street, and others, and their business continues to grow by hundreds of percent a year. If you're a regular listener to Out to Lunch you might have noticed that on each show we usually invite guests who have something in common. So, you might be wondering what the link could possibly be between sustainable tourism and pet costumes. Well, there is one. Marriage. Andrew Ward and Allison Albert Ward are married. To each other. Unless you happen to be friends with them and hang out with Andrew and Allison Albert Ward, it's unlikely you've heard a discussion about pet costumes and sustainable tourism anywhere else recently. Or ever. In the days before social media, traditional media outlets bolstered their reputation as information sources by scooping each other – getting a story first and owning it. These stories were billed as “exclusive,” meaning it was content you could get from one place and one place only. Today, information spreads around the world in moments. We're all instantly reading and hearing versions of the same content. Except, that is, for this conversation. You won't hear anything like this conversation, anywhere. Out to Lunch is recorded live over lunch at NOLA Pizza in the NOLA Brewing Taproom. You can see photos from this show by Jill Lafleur. at our website itsneworleans.com.

The CDC states that since the Covid-19 pandemic began, one in every three children has been diagnosed with a mental health disorder such as anxiety or ADHD. It is more important than ever to learn how and to teach techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety. Today's guest is Dr. Michele Borba. Dr. Borba is an internationally renowned educator and award-winning author of 24 books. She is a motivational speaker having spoken in 19 countries on 5 continents and has served as a consultant to hundreds of schools and corporations like Sesame Street, Harvard, The US Air Force Academy, and the Royal Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. Dr. Borba is an NBC contributor who has been on countless shows including Today, Dateline, Dr. Oz, Anderson Cooper, CNN, and more. Her work is featured in Time, Washington Post, Newsweek, Boston Globe, US News and World Report, and many others. Show Notes: [1:30] - Dr. Borba started her career as a special education teacher and has learned how resilient kids truly are. [4:03] - We can't point the finger at one specific cause. We need to focus on what to do about it. [5:07] - Dr. Borba describes a study done over the course of 40 years. [6:25] - What are the things we need to teach to help manage anxiety or prevent it? [8:35] - Connect with teachers. Kids act differently at school than they do at home. [9:33] - Teachers see trends in behaviors in their class. [10:16] - A major change in society is that getting mental health services is more acceptable. [11:23] - Give kids a range of ideas to help your children. [13:12] - When you suggest a hobby, it isn't a sport or activity that you have to add to the agenda. It is something they choose to do. [14:37] - Hobbies, pets, music, etc. can be tools that work for some kids. [15:29] - Everyone has a different stress sign. [16:18] - Dr. Borba shares a breathing technique great for both kids and adults. [18:21] - By learning these strategies, kids can build muscle memory. [20:21] - Thrivers have the tools to pull from to deal with stress. [21:44] - Your voice and family mantra can become your child's inner voice. [23:00] - Volunteering helps build hope and empathy. [25:03] - There are many ways to build empathy but be intentional. [26:34] - Teach emotional literacy. [27:50] - Many social skills are in dormant mode right now. [29:03] - Kids can also feed off the stress of their parents. [30:18] - Our society tends to focus on performance which can add levels of stress. [33:32] - Kids are becoming ruder and civility needs to be retaught. [36:10] - Empathy is a super power and is the glue that holds society together. Thanks for joining us on Easy Prey.

This week on Tent Show Radio, enjoy part two of a very special episode from the archives. Enjoy electric folk-rock from the powerful, unyielding, and ultimately uplifting Buffy Sainte-Marie, as she performs tunes from across her career. Since her groundbreaking debut, 1964's It's My Way!, the Cree singer-songwriter has been a trailblazer and a tireless advocate, an innovative artist, and a disruptor of the status quo. Sainte-Marie has spent her whole life creating, and her artistry, humanitarian efforts, and Indigenous leadership have made her a unique force in the music industry. In 1969, she made one of the world's first electronic vocal albums; in 1982 she became the only Indigenous person to win an Academy Award; she spent five years on Sesame Street where she became the first woman to breastfeed on national television. She's been blacklisted and silenced. She's written pop standards sung and recorded by the likes of Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley, Donovan, Joe Cocker, and Jennifer Warnes. She penned “Universal Soldier,” the definitive anti-war anthem of the 20th century. She is an icon who keeps one foot firmly planted on either side of the North American border, in the unsurrendered territories that comprise Canada and the USA. This episode features recordings from Buffy Sainte-Marie's 2016 performance on the Big Top stage.

R&SRNR_157 – “THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES HISTORY OF THE CARPENTERS, PART 1” This is the first of two episodes spotlighting one of the most innovative and successful brother and sister acts in popular music history – Richard and Karen – the Carpenters. We thought we could fit their story into just one show, and we promoted that on the prior edition of our little podcast series – show #156. But, as we went deeper into their inventory of hit singles, we happily discovered that two episodes would best present the totality of their tuneage. On this episode – show #157, we'll feature the Carpenters music from the mid-1960s to 1974.

Do you have young kids? Are you not sure of how to talk with them about the challenges of this military life? Don't worry, because Sesame Street for Military Families is here for you. The post AWTR Show #889: Sesame Street first appeared on Army Wife Network.
Slam the Gavel welcomes Hope Wagner to the show. She is a Grandmother to three granddaughters. Her own daughter was murdered by the children's father. However, she has been ordered to not see her own grandchildren, but the father that has committed the murder has access to see his daughters. As the children were questioned by the detectives, three factors existed: Prior to her daughter's murder, the father had used and groomed his daughter's on the murder of their mother that would take place, he also directed the children as to what would happen and to clean up and cover up the murder, what to say to the police and how to say it thus helping him in the process under his direction. The children stated they witnessed the brutal murder of their own mother. Watching their mother cling to life while fighting to her death is haplessly ignored, however the system is helping the children by showing them Sesame Street and teaching them how to have a relationship with an incarcerated parent, yet won't allow them to see their grandparents. For the past 24 months the children have had a forced relationship with the convicted murderer. CPS and non-profits are working together to develop a care plan for the family and children focused on reunification with the parent incarcerated. Hope has been taken out of their lives for the last 24 months. Reaching out to attorneys who are reluctant to challenge they system, Hope has found that there are no outlets, no one to turn to. The system threw Hope and her husband into the family court arena where they want to revoke his parental rights. Hope refuses to participate in this as the system which has made it very difficult to talk to anybody. Hope encourages people to refuse to participate in the very schemes of the system that gives it oxygen to thrive, know your rights and stand your ground. Demand the upholding of the Constitution and to step out of the emotional box. We have to change this, Hope says, as the system thrives on dysfunction that supports its coercive persuasion and enriches itself on the the despair of others. EXSPOSE THE CORRUPTION!

This week on Tent Show Radio, enjoy part one of a very special episode from the archives. Enjoy electric folk-rock from the powerful, unyielding, and ultimately uplifting Buffy Sainte-Marie, as she performs tunes from across her career. Since her groundbreaking debut, 1964's It's My Way!, the Cree singer-songwriter has been a trailblazer and a tireless advocate, an innovative artist, and a disruptor of the status quo. Sainte-Marie has spent her whole life creating, and her artistry, humanitarian efforts, and Indigenous leadership have made her a unique force in the music industry. In 1969, she made one of the world's first electronic vocal albums; in 1982 she became the only Indigenous person to win an Academy Award; she spent five years on Sesame Street where she became the first woman to breastfeed on national television. She's been blacklisted and silenced. She's written pop standards sung and recorded by the likes of Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley, Donovan, Joe Cocker, and Jennifer Warnes. She penned “Universal Soldier,” the definitive anti-war anthem of the 20th century. She is an icon who keeps one foot firmly planted on either side of the North American border, in the unsurrendered territories that comprise Canada and the USA. This episode features recordings from Buffy Sainte-Marie's 2016 performance on the Big Top stage.
For some of us, puppets are lifelong friends; characters from our youth that teach, comfort, and entertain. For others, puppets are mysterious and even unsettling, represented only by strange, disorienting voices. Today, Christine works through her discomfort with the art form by asking questions about the visuals of puppets and puppeteering. How does Kermit's mouth move? Can a marionette really evoke an emotional response? And what are water puppets and shadow puppets?! Visual descriptions of one of the world's earliest theatrical traditions, today on Talk Description To Me.

Is self-storage worth it? We have invited guests before who had talked about self-storage, but still, there's more to this space that many investors have yet to learn about. Jay Bowman drops by our podcast to talk about his experience jumping from single family to self-storage. He started his real estate journey by buying his first rental property for $11,000. Little did he know that it was a big mistake and his tenant moved out only after two months. This misstep has prompted Jay to find other ways to invest in real estate, which led him to the self-storage space. He now helps his fellow investors buy self-storage properties through his company, Beyond Storage. [00:01 - 02:48] Opening Segment How Jay Bowman learned how to be a landlord really fast Here's his journey of how he jumped from residential to self-storage [02:49 - 10:56] Why Invest In Self-Storage The difference in evaluating between a single family and a self-storage property Here's the right way to evaluate a self-storage property before buying How should you set the prices for your properties? Jay gives a sneak peek into their approach [10:57 - 15:21] Properties That Are Worth Investing Jay shares his thoughts about tenants leaving the properties Why do they leave in the first place? If a property is 40-50% occupied, is it still worth it? Jay gives his thoughts The biggest surprise that Jay discovered after jumping to self-storage [15:22 - 17:38] Closing Segment A real estate mistake you want our listeners to avoid Not educating yourself before buying properties Your way to making the world a better place Giving back to the surrounding community Reach out to Jay See links below Final words Tweetable Quotes “...when you got 300 or 300 units in a facility and everybody's leaving, a lot of times, it's just because their usage is done.” - Jay Bowman “...you got to be educated, you have to understand what it is that you are actually purchasing…people are gonna tell you how passive self-storage investing is, and whoever tells you that does not know what they're talking about.” - Jay Bowman ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to connect with Jay or follow him on LinkedIn.

Check it out below: Jay Bowman 00:00 When you're evaluating a business, such as self-storage, you're going in about how much net operating income it's going to throw off at the end of the day. And so you're having to look at maybe an asset that is not being operated correctly or the rents aren't high enough or there's some other things that you can make changes to drive higher rents monthly, to drive in the end your net operating income higher, which therefore then increases the value of the property. Intro 00:29 Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we will teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson 00:37 Jay Bowman is a former buyer of single family rentals rehabs and flips, and he has successfully transitioned to self-storage purchases. Jay lives in Kentucky with his wife and two children. Jay, welcome to the show. Jay Bowman 00:49 Thanks for having me, Sam. Appreciate it. Sam Wilson 00:50 Hey, man, pleasure's mine. There's three questions I asked every guest who comes on the show. In 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there? Jay Bowman 00:57 I started here in Louisville, Kentucky, moved here in 2004. And started by buying my first rental property for $11,000 in a really bad area with one tenant. And I thought, “Man, this would be great. I'll buy a house and there'll be a tenant in there and he'll pay the rent.” And two months later, he moved out and I learned how to, how to be a landlord really, really fast. Sam Wilson 01:19 Yeah. And would you recommend buying $11,000 rentals? Jay Bowman 01:23 I would not recommend that. It was also the first rental property I ever got rid of. It took me a while but I took a beating good enough, and I sold it for cash as well at the same time. Sam Wilson 01:33 Right? Yeah, you have to I have a story similar to yours in starting out and you go, “What was I thinking? What exactly was I thinking?” That's really, really fascinating. Tell me where are you now? Jay Bowman 01:44 We're based out of Louisville, Kentucky. Oh, this where we've always been all my portfolio is my single family portfolio is here. But our storage portfolio is spread out. We have units or we have facilities in Indiana, Missouri, and currently one under contract in Louisiana. Sam Wilson 02:01 Interesting. Okay, so right. So just to follow this transition, you were in single family, you started off, obviously, you know, some really small stuff. I'm sure you ran the gamut in single family from me, did you do everything you could possibly do in single family before you gave up on it and said, “Hey, I'm going into commercial.” Jay Bowman 02:17 Sure, I started buying a small rental and then started wanting to do rehabs. As everybody else in the brother did back in, you know, five, six, and seven, got into that and then bought one in ‘08, couldn't sell it. So we just turned it into a rental and from there just continued the fix and flip rentals and then just started acquiring and going from there. And then after a while around 2020, the transition to self-storage came available. And after years of construction and heartache and pain banging your head against a brick wall, we decided to make the transition to self-storage. Sam Wilson 02:49 Tell me what was that process like? Because a lot of people want to make that jump, they want to say hey, you know, they're just like you just like where I used to be. They want to say, hey, I want to get out of single family. But I don't know how or I don't have the team or I don't have the finances or I don't X, Y, Z fill in the blank. How did what were some of the things that you mentally said I don't maybe yet have the skill set to take that down, but that you, kind of had to fill in the gaps on what did that look like for you. Jay Bowman 03:13 Really the biggest thing is, you know, the acquisition is very similar. The only difference is being able to evaluate the property while you go into a single family, you may say, Oh, hey, this is $100,000 house, when it's all well and done buying it for 50. It needs 20 Oh, there's a $30,000 spread, right? Easy peasy. That's pretty easy. When you're evaluating a business such as self-storage, you're going in about how much net operating income is going to throw off at the end of the day. And so you're having to look at maybe an asset that is not being operated correctly, or the rents aren't high enough, or there's some other things that you can make changes, to drive higher rents monthly to drive in the end your net operating income higher, which therefore then increases the value of the property. So its evaluation is completely different. And I would recommend that anybody who gets into storage, learns how to evaluate those properties. Outside of that we do basic rehab stuff. Same thing as houses, you have paint, you have some fencing, you have things like that, and then making cold calls and talking to business owners instead of homeowners. It's still the, very similar conversation. It's just the operations of the business is different. Sam Wilson 04:17 Right? Talk to me, if you don't mind, take a few minutes and go in-depth on property evaluation. You know, when you look at a deal, what are some high-level things maybe that you guys look at out of the gate and say, Hey, further interest or pass and then when you take the next the kind of the second round of underwriting, what does that look like? And you break down those kind of two phases for me? Jay Bowman 04:35 Yeah, sure. So when we begin, we want to discover what that seller is, what his motivation is why he's looking to potentially sell. And so we're talking to him about his or her personal situation. You know, a lot of these people are older people, they bought these facilities in the 80s or 90s. When they were 30 years old. Well, today, they're 60 and 70. And they're still sweeping out units with a broom, and they're still sitting in an office right? Physical leases and they're getting really tired of that. So we start talking to them about what their process looks like, what their facilities look like, you know, what's your unit mix? How much are you charging? What's your occupancy? Are you fence, “Do you have automated gates?” Do you have a website and we start to gather that information. And we put that into our analysis, and they would begin to compare it to what's going on in their competitors. And what we do is we start with a basic target, and we go, Hey, who are the competitors, then zero to one miles, then 1,2,3. And then three to five, rarely, we're going to go out and five miles, because storage is very, it's just very a local business. Nobody says, you know, unless you're in the middle of nowhere, when I'm going to drive 25 miles to go to this storage facility, you don't have a lot of that. So that's our initial underwriting. If we can see that there's value to be had there, we're, we're more than happy to talk to that seller about making an offer on that. Once we do that, that second round, we're going to go to a site visit, because you can't attend, you can't go visit these things. You know, I'm in Kentucky, I'm not going to drive to Memphis where you are to go see a facility just because I have a conversation with somebody. So we need to get the details first. And then once we have that property, under a purchase and sale agreement, we will actually go visit the physical property, do a walkthrough, identify any other issues that we may have, and move forward from there because we need to be able to put our eyes on that property and evaluate physically. Sam Wilson 06:28 Right? Sure. Yeah. You want to make sure that there's no unknowns, maybe that when after you're under the purchase sale agreement, when you get there, you might find some things that were lurking that weren't disclosed. But then I guess on top of that, let's ask because obviously, this is all net operating, income-driven. That's how you decide this is how much we can pay for the property. How do you determine in an efficient manner, what going rent rates are without surveying the 135 mile every, you know, potential competitor in the 135-mile radius? Is there a quicker way to do that than just actually getting on and writing them all down on a spreadsheet and figuring out what that looks like? Jay Bowman 07:02 No. I keep that, you know, we want to talk to those people, we need to know what these other people are charging and how full they are. So if all of your competitors are 100% full, and they're bragging about how they're they haven't raised their rates in the last 10 years, and we're just charging ahead, we know that there's room to grow, how much room to grow, and how high you can raise those rates is another is a different question. So if somebody has a 10 by 10, for $70, and everybody's charging $70, and everybody's 100%, full, well, then we know $70 is too low, you know, we want to see roughly anywhere between 87 and 93% occupancy on a unit mix. And so that way, as these people move out, if they have cheaper rates, we want to be able to charge a higher rate per month for that unit size, what that unit, what that is 75, 80, 85 what that market is willing to bear is the risk that you take. So we never like to see that. You know, you have a lot of people who are 90% full, and everybody's charging the same rates, there's really no room to run there. You know, unless operationally you are looking to contain to drive, you may drive your clients out if everybody's charging 80. And then I step in and I go, Well, we're gonna charge 95, we could easily lose those clients and drop below a threshold that we were really comfortable with. Sam Wilson 08:22 So say that again, if you see that it is 90% full, and everyone is charging the same rates, you say that there's no rent growth possible, that what you just said, Did I hear… Jay Bowman 08:33 That's what, that's us, yeah. So we're gonna look at that and go, Well, should we go in? And should we charge an extra $5? Well, if somebody else has 10%, left to fill, we may be pushing some of those people out. It's usually not everybody's running for the door. But you're always gonna have those people, a lot of people just call and shop. And if you have three competitors that are really close by and those are, what your comparables are, you need to proceed with caution in that scenario. Sam Wilson 09:01 Right? Yeah. Because I mean, if you're shopping, and you're 10 or 15 bucks more a month, and they're only 90% full, that means they can just as easily absorb that person who's looking for a place to go. Whereas conversely, if you said, if you shopped, and you said that, hey, they're 100% full, and they're all charging the same rates, then you say, Hey, wait, there's room to grow? Jay Bowman 09:18 Yes, exactly. Because everybody, it's full. And they're all just taking waiting lists waiting for somebody to move out? Well, if we raised $10, and we have 90% of our people stay, we're happy with that we've increased our revenue pretty dramatically. And then if there's everybody else is still full, there's charging the same, right? We just go up a little bit more, but we're the only ones with units available. And so we're driving the market at that point. Sam Wilson 09:42 Do you just kind of test this as in you know, take a few units and say, Okay, we're gonna put this out there at 10 bucks more per month and just see what happens. How do you adjust that dynamic pricing or testing model? Jay Bowman 09:55 Sure, the websites that we use software that we use, we are able to set that up So we will take, depending on how many units there are, we will take that and say, Okay, once we hit a 87% occupancy, we are going to raise the rate of this unit, let's say a $70, unit 10% to $77, we're gonna raise a seven bucks, oh, but if it fills up a few more units, and we hit 93%, occupancy, we're gonna raise it another 15%, because now we're pushing that rate higher. And then once if that starts to fill, we're going to look at all those people who may be paying 70. But now the market rate is shown to be 85. And we're going to start to move them up to the market rate. And maybe we don't raise them up, immediately we do it in stage over a few months, we will go from 70 to 77, or 70, to 80. Keeping them there. And then we noticed storage is a high sticky factor, we may not see a whole lot of people leave, and then we'll just push them straight to market and then begin that process all over again. Sam Wilson 10:57 Right, that's really, really intriguing. What is that conversion ratio? Or percentage of someone? Maybe they came in at 70? How many people that you then raised 85 actually stick around or and then how many of them? Do you find that lease renewal end up going somewhere else? Jay Bowman 11:11 You know, that would require a lot of asking why those people are leaving, we don't do that when you got 300 or 300 units in a facility and everybody's leaving, you know, a lot of times, it's just because their usage is done, really, you're gonna find a lot of people leave, if you buy a value add facility at the very beginning. And people are there for the value there for the cheap rates, they're just looking to put grandma's dresser somewhere, and you were the cheapest in town. And when you step in, and you clean up that facility and you go $40 rates going to $70, you're no longer that value, that's not our client anyway, we're not looking for that client, there's another facility a couple miles away, that doesn't do as great of a job, it's a little rougher facility, you're like, hey, they're right down the road, you can head over there, but we're gonna replace that $40 person with a $70 person, that's what we're looking for. When you've already have when you have people who are operating poorly, you know, we're gonna go in and make value there. Or if you have rates that are really good, maybe the market rate is 60. But they've got a lot of people at 50, it's not really value, they just haven't done their job, the operational side, in raising the rents to the market, because they're always afraid somebody is going to leave, we're happy to invite them to leave, because we know somebody else is going to fill them at 1015 20 25% higher, right? Sam Wilson 12:33 What do you or how much time do you build in for, we're gonna call it the lease-up phase or the release phase when you take over a facility? Jay Bowman 12:42 Yeah, so we usually look our market and have facilities where we've had to experience that it's been about 2.5% a month. That's a pretty good rule of thumb for us so far. So and I'm going to be really bad at doing the math here. If we're at 65% occupancy, when we take over facility, we would expect in 10 months to achieve 90% And 2.5% a month, that's really our that's what we shoot for when we do our pro formas. And so say that, like we know this one, it's sitting roughly at about 40 to 45% occupancy, and we're going to go in, it's gonna take us a while to get that thing full. But you have to go in and you have to begin advertising, you have to set up the website, you have to get the Facebook ads out there for these people who are searching for places to put their stuff. And a lot of these older buildings that are run by people who've had them for 30 or 40 years. They're just not doing that. And so we're going to go in and take advantage of that opportunity. Sam Wilson 13:40 Does it concern you when you find a facility that's 40 to 50% occupied? Like how do you know when you buy that, that, hey, I can actually turn this around? I mean, other than just going hey, I think I can or you know, I mean, what are some things when you look at those facilities that hey, wait, there is unmet demand here? And I mean, walk me through that that would be intimidating. Jay Bowman 14:01 Sure. So when we have other competitors surrounding us, and we see those competitors are 90 to 100% occupied and then we're like, Well wait a second, you know, the old Sesame Street thing. One of these things is not like the other and we're going it looks good. It's in the right location. Everybody else is full. So what's wrong here? And you have to look at that and wonder why? Well, I mean, it's pretty obvious when they're not answering the phone, there's no website, they're not running ads, you have some management that's just not are owners who are not doing their job, and are very hands off or don't care. And so at that point, we are very, very confident that we can go in and increase that occupancy. Sam Wilson 14:41 Got it Jay this is absolutely awesome. What's been one of the biggest surprises you found personally going from single family into storage. Jay Bowman 14:49 The biggest surprise that's a really good question. Had I known the power of owning a business over owning real estate, probably would have made this transition sooner. The operational side is it well, single family, you're still a landlord, you're managing people, your oven is breaking, your lawn needs mowing, all of that. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy the operational side or the investment side of actually buying a business that comes with real estate as opposed to just buying real estate itself. Sam Wilson 15:22 Man, that's fantastic. Jay, I've certainly enjoyed this today. Thanks for taking the time here to come on. Next question for you. What is one mistake you can help our listeners avoid and how would you avoid it? Jay Bowman 15:31 Education. You absolutely want to before you go out buying little bitty facilities, we rarely work in the tertiary markets. We're not buying in the middle of Louisville, we're not buying in the middle of Memphis, you know, Class A facilities are not our thing. We look for tertiary markets, class beat facilities, not trash, but it's not super high end, we're looking for value in those markets. And to just go out and start buying that. It's like handling a gun, you got to be educated, you have to understand what it is that you are actually purchasing. It's not just a people are gonna tell you how passive self-storage investing is. And whoever tells you that does not know what they're talking about. There is operations to this and you have to understand what that is, and how to do that effectively to be able to manage that business, Sam Wilson 16:18 Right? A lot of that. What is one way you're making the world a better place? Jay Bowman 16:23 You know, when we go in and we buy a facility, we immediately contact some charities and we donate a couple of units to them. Sometimes if we don't have a fenced facility, we're also contacting local police departments, we're donating units to them as well. And it's, I'm not gonna lie, it serves a double purpose when, you know, you're saying hey, we'll give you a couple units if you're happy to drive by once a week and do that but we always want to make sure that we contact those Sherry's and we want to make sure that they're they have a unit or two and begin to work with him. Sam Wilson 16:54 Man. That's awesome. I love that. Jay, if our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do that?

In the early 1970s, Dave Goelz was an industrial designer working for Hewlett-Packard by day and obsessing over the puppets on Sesame Street in his spare time. Fifty years later, Goelz still has the dream job he left Silicon Valley to pursue. He's the Muppet performer bringing life to Gonzo, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Waldolf, Zoot and others. We'll talk about the creative alchemy of Jim Henson's Muppet universe with Goelz as well as Henson's biographer and the curator of Imagination Unlimited, an exhibit about Henson which opens this week at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.
