Dan Wies is the president of Wies Drywall and Construction, a St. Louis company that has been in his family for three generations. He also enjoys contributing to the community–by providing quality service customers as well as training and growth opportunities to employees. Dan sees it as his job to make the general contractor the hero. “My name should never be in your mouth in a bad way,” he says to general contractors. The key to staying effective, profitable, and safe, Dan says, is having a really solid team that can execute consistently. This is the key to owners and contractors who are not frustrated. We ask Dan to discuss some of the pain points of drywall work. He touches on these things: Ensuring that you aren't just treated like another bidder on bid day - This means being clear about the scope of bids. Standing out in an increasingly complex construction landscape - This means being clear and consistent about their focus. It also means innovating–creating systems that are more efficient. Timing production runs to ensure that storage space doesn't overflow before a site is ready for the parts. We discuss panelization and modularization. Dan explains that these approaches help him help general contractors move projects along at a faster pace. Having a Revit specialist on the team enables him to respond quickly when a contractor needs to plan a change. Dan explains his company's use of FRAMECAD, a roll-forming machine (See a video here). Dan compares it to the equipment used to form eavestroughs–but with substantially greater capabilities. Their machine can form anything from a 2” stud to a 50-footer. And it can do this while operating at an almost zero-waste level. Eddie points out that the average person–even someone who works in the construction industry–doesn't have a clue how complex the work is that is done by larger drywall operators like Wies's company. Our perceptions are seriously outdated and simplistic. Dan shares a bit about how they've recruited and trained designers and computer operators. Then we move on to discuss the challenges of sourcing roll-forming equipment from New Zealand in the middle of the pandemic. Surprisingly, Dan said it didn't take them as long as it's taking some people now. Fitting that cool new machine into the workspace, though… Well, Dan just decided to buy a whole new facility. That facility is now so busy that it's just busting at the seams. That creates a storage issue, since this material can't sit outdoors for long periods of time. This means their space is totally overloaded–and then it's suddenly empty. We discuss the advantages and challenges of new technologies such as laser scanning. It's important to weigh the huge number of pros and cons before integrating a new system. It's also important to keep quality and consistency at the forefront of the decision-making process.

In 10 years, Anna Kelley went from $700,000 in debt to an 8-figure net worth real estate mogul. Being in tremendous debt wasn't the first time she hit rock bottom. As a child, she grew up in households with abusive men and had to stay in women's shelters with her mom. Her tough childhood only made her more determined to outwork all of her friends. “I realized that if I wanted a different life than what I had as a child if I didn't want my children to be in an abusive situation or to spend evenings in a women's shelter as I had as a child if I wanted better for myself and my family, I had to be willing to do whatever it took to succeed and to get myself out of that situation.” (08:09) Her grit eventually landed her high-profile careers at the Bank of America and AIG. Whereas most people would just call her lucky - she disagrees: “People say, okay, you're lucky, right? They don't understand the backstory and all the adversity to get where you are. But I do believe that when you're prepared and preparation meets opportunity - that's what we call luck.” Getting jobs where she works with ultra-high net worth individuals opened her eyes to what's possible in life. So, how come she got into so much debt? And how did she climb out of it? Anna Kelley is a multifamily syndicator. She invested in her first property in 1998 and exploded in the real estate space in the last 10 years.Adversities Anna Kelley had to overcome:-- Grew up in section 8 housing-- Spent evenings in a women's shelter as a child-- Was $700,000 in business debt with no income sourceAbundance Anna Kelley created:-- Graduated early from college-- Worked with ultra-high net worth individuals in the Bank Of America and AIG-- 8-figure net worth, 250 units Lessons from Anna Kelley's adversities-- You have control over how your life ends up, you have to be determined to do what others won't do to get to where you want to get to-- Timing matters. You can be the best at what you do, but if you start a business at the wrong time, you can shoot yourself in the foot.Tune in as Anna Kelley and Jamie talk about:(00:00) From abuse to a star real estate investor(04:04) Quitting a 6 figure job at AIG(05:37) Why she became really driven (Anna's backstory)(14:08) How she got a lucrative job at BoA by “luck”(16:30) What she learned from ultra-high net-worth individuals(19:51) Rebuilding after $700,000 in business debt (and no income)(33:27) Living below her means for 10 years: what it did for her(37:31) Happening to me vs. happening for me: a mindset shift(38:50) Fireside questions(44:41) Recession and investing in real estate in this climate(49:24) Book recommendations(51:08) Reaching out to Anna Kelley LinksPrinciples for Dealing with the Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail by Ray DalioThe End of the World Is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization by Peter ZeihanLife on Air: Memoirs of a Broadcaster by David AttenboroughMulti-Family Millions: How Anyone Can Reposition Apartments for Big Profits by David Lindahl Connect with Anna Kelley:WEBSITE: www.reimom.com and https://greaterpurposecapital.com/LINKEDIN: https://www.linkedin.com/in/anna-kelley-reimom/INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/AnnaKelleyinvesting/Follow From Adversity to Abundance Podcast WEBSITE: https://www.adversity2abundance.com/Follow Labrador LendingWEBSITE: https://labradorlending.com/LINKEDIN: https://www.linkedin.com/company/71512077/ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/labradorlendingINSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/labradorlendingllc/YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChYrpCUlqFYLy4HngRrmU9QConnect with JamieLINKEDIN: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jamie-bateman-5359a811/TWITTER: https://twitter.com/batemanjamesINSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/batemanjames11/

The Land Podcast - The Pursuit of Land Ownership and Investing
With the uncertainty in the land-buying market, this is not the best time to double down and stick your neck out. “Not buying” because of the market is also not a great strategy, but buying what you can afford and manage will keep you moving forward. Buying land should be a win-win for the buyer and the seller, and focusing on what you have, what you want, and what is possible will enable you to get value for your money. Don't wait for the market to improve or crush. That will only curtail your progress. Buying a farm, seeing its potential, and watching it grow is the best feeling that you don't want to miss. Learn how to narrow down your goals and buy something you will enjoy. Knowing what you're looking for will help you make the right choices in your purchase and farm improvement, and this makes all the difference. In this episode, Jake visits Steve Hanson in Iowa. Steve is a returning guest and has a great story of how he bought his first farm in Iowa in his 20s, how he sold it, and his experience with different land transactions and management. Steve specializes in land, real estate, and land management and is the owner and operator of Straight Arrow, which was established in 1995. He began his career guiding hunters in Alaska for several years before moving to Southern Iowa and guiding for trophy whitetails. He now owns, lease, and have access to over 20 farms in 3 different counties totaling more than 6,000 acres. Now, let's jump in!

The best properties that hunt the best have good access from multiple sides. The big mistake that new buyers make is that they want everything Once they get their first farm, many buyers get so excited about certain projects that they overlook the bigger ones. Once you put the infrastructure in place, everything else gets easier. You can take a low-edge farm and make it a high-edge, but you can't set your market because you think it's a perfect farm. https://linktr.ee/TheLandPodcast https://linktr.ee/exodustrailcamera https://bit.ly/TheDeerGearPodcast

Joint replacement can help relieve pain and enable you to live a fuller, more active life. Almost 1.25 million hip and knee replacement surgeries were performed in 2019 in the U.S. Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure where parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis, which is designed to replicate the movement of a normal healthy joint. How can you tell when joint replacement is necessary? How risky is the surgery? How bad is it if you don't replace a damaged joint? If you are or someone you love is contemplating joint replacement surgery, this episode is essential. In Episode 65, Dr. G and his guest, Denis Williams, M.D., discuss and answer frequently asked questions about joint replacement surgery.

In this episode, Sachin and Aron discuss what an objection is, why you are getting objections, how to rethink objections, and how to remove that word from your vocabulary and get down to being of value and service to people. Key Takeaways: [1:02] Sachin introduces the guest, Aron, one of the Perfect Practice community super coaches. Aron has onboarded many Mentorship and Accelerator clients. Aron is a fellow practitioner. The topic is objections. [2:40] Aron has sold well over seven figures in the last couple of years. He has taken thousands of calls to help people get onboarded in programs. He had been shy and reserved and it's been a great growth experience! [5:38] Aron used to be afraid of confrontation in a sales call. He thought objection was rejection. With experience, he learned to reframe objections as forms of interest in making it happen. [7:12] If you're dealing with an adversarial type of conversation, then you've probably done something wrong. Objections are really interest in problems you're trying to solve. Sachin uses the metaphor of a boxing coach in the corner cheering the client on. The goal is to build confidence. [9:22] Aron differentiates between objections and excuses. Objections are usually at the end of a call before someone moves forward. No amount of objection handling will help someone do what they are not willing to do. You can't drag a horse across a finish line. [11:31] Building rapport with the client before the call prepares the client for the call. If you haven't built rapport, you will face objections. Rapport is what they see from you. Do they have a familiarity with how you think, what you sound like, what you look like, and what you value? When you're on the call, can you find commonality? Can you be approachable? [13:16] Do you show up fully ready to listen to someone? Do you show interest in the other person, not as a dollar sign but as a real human being, and that you care about what they're struggling with and care to connect them with a solution to solve that problem? If you feel it, it will come across on your call. Did you look at the intake form that they filled out? [15:09] By understanding their circumstances, we're able to provide a more fitting solution for them. [16:10] A lot of the value practitioners offer is in the questions you ask to help clients understand that you know what you're talking about. The questions you ask about their problem show them you have the experience in dealing with that problem to ask the right questions. People understand that you know what you're talking about. Then the number of objections decreases. [17:23] Trust is built through the questions you ask. Tell stories of real experiences about the problem they're coming with. Once they can identify with the stories and experiences, then the trust is there. [19:22] When Aron uses technical terms only if the client has seen them on a lab test and they're presenting it. When you explain terms, don't be overly technical. Making people confused decreases rapport. If someone feels ignorant during a call, that's not a way to help them where they are. Don't lose them. Help them stay on track. [22:47] The moment you identify they're not a good fit for your process, you stop, because you can't take them where they want to go. You've got to be ethical and make that decision for them. You only want to work with people who are the right fit, as well. Look for the 20% of people who are the right fit for you. [24:31] Aron uses a metaphor of swimming to see if someone is a good fit. As the conversation progresses, does it seem the client is swimming toward you and you are getting closer? Or are you chasing them in circles? You're not selling a product, you're committing to a relationship. Would you want to spend time with that person? Are they coachable and open to learning? [27:20] Aron shares how values fit in functional medicine. What are the values important to you? Tell pertinent stories. If you don't have client stories to share, start with your story. If you are clear on your values, you can communicate that on a call. Spell them out. Values can pre-address objections. For example, offer a transformational experience, not a diet. [32:27] IBM developed a sales method they called BANT. B is Budget. Does the person have the budget to work with you? A is Authority or Able. Does the person you're speaking to have the decision-making power to move forward? N is Needs. Do they have a problem you can solve? T is Timing. Can they work on their need now? Aron gives BANT examples. [40:35] Sachin walks through BANT concerning his offer calls to see how it can give more transparency. [42:27] Sachin outlines what the next segment with Aron will cover about objections in more depth. Sachin thanks Aron for sharing his knowledge on this episode of Perfect Practice.

Allworth Financial's Money Matters
On this week's Money Matters, Scott and Pat begin the show by discussing the impact of a huge change in consumer behavior. A caller with $5 million in savings is worried she hasn't saved enough. A 68-year-old Coloradan wants to know if he should take Social Security. And, finally, a call from a veteran who has saved well and wants to change careers gives way to a crypto conversation.
In Acts 6, Jesus reminds the Disciples that they don't have to worry about when the land will be returned to them but rather being focused on who needs the Word of more than who the land belongs to.

Unless you have a very long time horizon, in which case time cures a lot of ills, being right on your timing will make you the most amount of money in Real Estate. Although Light Industrial has been white hot over the past few years with few attractive deals, prices are starting to moderate as loans are maturing, and larger institutions are starting to rebalance their portfolios towards more liquid investments. Rich Kent, President and Managing Principal of Avistone, has a steep track record in the Flex Industrial asset class including two very successful recent funds. One and a half years ago, however, Rich pivoted to hospitality because prices of industrial had become too high to generate enough yield for his investors. Today, with prices coming back down to Earth, he's pivoting back to Flex Industrial with his third fund in this asset class.

Are the 7 biblical feasts found in Leviticus 23 for the Jew, Christian or both?
Hi darlings, we're back today with a chat with the man who got us turning our kitchens into dancefloors over the pandemic, and has just released one of the most disco-tastic albums of 2023, AudioLust and HigherLove. SG Lewis (or Sam, to his friends) is, as Kathleen says, a pied piper of the party! Makes sense that he's also super-producer to some of the world's biggest stars, from Mabel to Dua Lipa, and has worked with icons such as Elton John. Sam Zoomed us from LA to talk about what his career spent working with some of music's biggest stars has taught him about fame, money and success, as well as entertaining us with some excellent red carpet stories and revealing what the mysterious ‘songwriter camps' are really like. Plus we have got all our cocktail loving Huns covered with a review of what might be our top new London bar: SOMA, in Soho. And Ellie gives us the lowdown on her favourite new female comedians for International Women's Day, while we also both get stuck into the juiciest controversy of the moment, the explosive fallout from HBO's upcoming show The Idol, which has been accused of ‘male torture porn'. How did a show satirising fame become the very thing it was meant to satire? And what does this mean for its very famous co-creator The Weeknd? Recommendations discussed: SOMA Dans Le Noir?

God's Timing, Not Ours2 Peter 3:8-9 “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”When I read this verse I think about how God's timing can be so frustrating for us sometimes. I was praying with a friend of mine last night because she is so tired of working at her job. It is not great for her mental or physical health, they are not supportive of her, and the kids she teaches are not well behaved at all. She has been praying to the Lord for a long time now and she is not seeing results. She is tired and frustrated and feels like God is telling her to take a leap of faith, but doesn't seem to be directing her how to do that. God's timing is not like our timing. For us, we each have the same 24 hours in a day. Whether we use that to our advantage or not. Whether we are healthy or we are sick. Whether we are young or we are old. We all have 24 hours in a day, it is constant, it never changes. However, it is not the same for God. This verse is telling us that one day for God could be like a thousand years and a thousand years could be like a day. It is impossible for us to understand how time works for God. He seems to know every move we will make and yet he is also very present in each moment. He is in our future, our present and our past. They are all happening at the same time for Him, which of course makes no sense to us. How can the past and the future be happening at the same time? There are so many things about God that are a mystery. This is one of them.The next line says the Lord is not slow in keeping his promise as some understand slowness. God is not just stalling. He is not promising you something and then forgetting about it or delaying it because he doesn't care. On the contrary He cares so much that He is aligning his promise up for you at the perfect time. Sometimes we want things to happen now, but God knows if it did happen now, it wouldn't work. You wouldn't appreciate it, or you would waste it, or something else along these lines. However, if God gives it to you in a year, after you have experienced all these other things, you will be able to appreciate it more. I know we want God to fulfill his promises now. I know we want him to give us what we ask for now. We don't want to wait, we want it now. I get it. I have been in plenty of situations where I have been asking God for something and it takes far longer than I wanted it to. I felt like I was losing strength and a parent can't lose strength when their kids are acting up. You need to be on point, you need to be at the top of your game. Yet God says, He is there in our weakness. His power is made perfect in our weakness. Sometimes we need to get to that point so we can realize we need God. Sometimes we need to get to the point where we have tried everything on our own and nothing has worked. Sometimes we need to hit rock bottom so that God can come in and pick us up off the floor. However, if we have a choice, we keep trying to do everything on our own. Often we are not even giving God a chance to work, we are too busy doing it ourselves, so He sits back and He waits. Then we wonder why He is not answering our prayers. The last line in this verse says, “ Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” Thank you Lord for being patient with me! Thank you for not wanting me to perish! When I read this verse I think about the many times I have heard people say, “Jesus needs to hurry up and come.” People are thinking the world is so terrible that we are ready for the end times. We are ready for Jesus to come for His final judgement and end this world. We wonder what God is waiting for as we feel the world is bad enough. We feel it can't really get much worse than it is, so what is God waiting for? This verse answers that question for us. God does not want anyone to perish. He wants everyone to come to repentance. Yes, this world is crazy, and falling apart and so very broken. And yet if Jesus came today for the final judgement, how many of us would be going to heaven? How many of our loved ones would be going? We think we are ready for Jesus to come, but are we really? We just want the awfulness of this world to end, but we aren't necessarily ready for His judgement. And maybe some of us are ready. If you are listening to this podcast you love Jesus. If you are listening to a podcast about how to walk boldly with Jesus then you probably are doing your best to live your life according to God's will and law. That is awesome, you are probably ready to join Jesus in His kingdom in Heaven. What about your family members though? Are they ready? I understand this world is hard and it seems to be getting worse and worse each day. I don't know that this country has ever been more divided. There is so much racism and sexism. People are just rude and are not at all sorry about it. There is so much hate these days and it seems to drown out the love. So, naturally we want Jesus to come and save us. However, He already saved us. He did his job, now it is time to do ours. Romans 5:20-21 says, "The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Yes there is so much evil in the world right now, and that means there is so much grace as well. God is showering us with grace each and every day and we need to use this grace to spread his love to all we meet. We need to overshadow the hate with love. This is not easy. It is not easy to be surrounded by hate and to spread love. It is not easy to be that one positive voice amongst a sea of negativity. It is not easy to respond with love when met with hate. This is what grace if for. This is why God is showering us with grace. He is concerned for His children. He is concerned that if He came now so many of His children would be lost. So many of our children would be lost. We can't wait for Jesus to come and save us, we need to step up to the plate and start trying to save others. We can not save anyone on our own. We have no power on our own. However when we turn to the Holy Spirit, who is living inside all of us who are baptized, we have all the power in the world. Ask the Holy Spirit how you can help your loved ones? Ask the Holy Spirit how you can spread God's love to others? Pray each and every day for those who don't know God's love. When you encounter hate, pray for that person. I know you don't want to, I don't either. I know you don't feel like they deserve your prayers. You don't want to waste your breath on them. I get it, I understand what you mean. Don't do it for them. Do it for Christ, do it for your heavenly Father who's heart is breaking when He thinks about how many of His children are lost right now. We wonder what He is waiting for and He wonders why we can't see it. Why can't we see how sad He is at all of his lost sheep. It says in the Bible God will leave His 99 righteous sheep to go find that one lost sheep. Think of how it must be for God to see so many of his sheep lost. Let's try to help Him get them back. Let's ask the Holy Spirit how we can partner with God to use this grace He is giving us for His good. What can we do to help others rediscover His love? What is one thing we can do that would help make the world a brighter place? What is one thing we can do to shine the peace of Christ and the love of Christ to all those we meet? Dear Heavenly Father, I ask you to bless all those listening to this episode today. Lord, we are sorry we get so impatient at times waiting for your timing. We are grateful your ways are higher than our ways, please give us the patience and strength we need to keep waiting for your perfect timing. Lord, please show us where we can partner with you in saving your children. We can feel your pain and we want to help. Show us how Lord. Show us how to shine your love and light into the world. Show us how to respond with love when greeted by hate. Show us how to love the unlovable just as Jesus did. Show us how to start in our homes. Lord, we have so much to learn and we are ready to start. Teach us oh Lord we are ready and willing. We love you Lord, you are so forgiving. You are so patient. We are grateful for all you do for us and we ask all of this in accordance to your will and in Jesus' holy name, Amen!Thank you so much for joining me on this journey to walk boldly with Jesus! I look forward to meeting you here again tomorrow. Remember Jesus loves you and so do I! Have a blessed day!

What a weird title for today's content. But I promise - it's straight out of Scripture! So what does "looking for donkeys" have to do with God's timing? Well, sometimes "looking for donkeys" oddly describes life. But that's not reason enough to designate a full article to it. So, what is reason enough? I'll give you a clue. It has to do with God's timing. Maybe you have felt you aren't doing much more than looking for something as weird as a donkey. A look at God's timing can put everything strange, odd, senseless, or boring into context. Read More ...

The old adage, “it's not about timing the market, but about time in the market,” has been proven true over the years. While it can be tempting to try and avoid the worst days in the market, it's nearly impossible to avoid the worst days and capture the best days. But does time in the market beat market timing?

What in the world is God doing? It's easy to wonder this. We are living in an unfolding story, and it's hard to hold on when difficult circumstances linger, or your deepest prayer hangs in the air, seemingly unanswered. Author Laurie Short joins Afternoons to remind us that thankfully the Bible is filled with people who experienced the same thing, through her book Faith, Doubt, and God's Mysterious Timing.

Would you like to live a life with no bad days? Is that even possible? Today's episode offers a refreshing perspective on how to live a happy, fulfilling, “no bad days” life. Our guest Jeffrey Holst, a real estate investor who has a passion for life shares how changing one's perspective can lead to a life without bad days. He now shares the secret to making every day great, leveraging the power of mindset, and designing an ideal lifestyle of adventure and fulfillment while uncovering investment opportunities in real estate. Living and loving what he coined as his “last life ever”, Jeff inspires us to live the best version of ourselves every day from his own life experiences. Beset with challenges and a life-threatening condition, Jeff shares how he crafted the life that he wanted through a complete change in his mindset and by building his real estate business. If you're ready to learn valuable insights on living a full, happy life and looking to gain time and financial freedom toward your ideal lifestyle through real estate investments, this episode is for you! Key Points from This Episode: Why does Jeff hasn't had a bad day in 25 years? How can one live a life of “no bad days”? Jeff shares his backstory zeroing in on a life-changing and life-threatening experience and the search for life purpose. How did Jeff alter the direction of his life in pursuit of a more fulfilling one? What type of mindset shift did Jeff go through to craft a more fulfilling life? What prompted Jeff to get into the real estate business? What types of asset classes did Jeff invest in and how did he build his real estate portfolio? How does Jeff interpret the current real estate market cycle and what opportunities does he see as an investor today? How can investors grow their portfolios and design their life given the opportunities presented by the current market cycle? What is Jeff's philosophy behind the “last life ever” tenet that compelled him to launch a similarly named podcast? How does Jeff live out the “last life ever” philosophy? Jeff's advice on how to design a life based on his philosophies, embracing openness and vulnerability and welcoming challenges. Jeff launches his book “No Bad Days: How to Make Every Day Great” Jeff answers the Rare Air Questionnaire. Tweetables: “One of my life goals is to live to the energy death of the universe because I love being alive so much.” “However I perceive the day for me is how my day is.” “Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right.” - Henry Ford “It is how we perceive the world that matters. If we think it's good, it is good. If we think it's bad, it's bad.” “The moment that you accept full responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you can change anything in your life.” - Hal Elrod “If you focus on the positive, you win.” “You have to recognize that you don't actually have to change the world to change the world.” “This amazing purpose that I get to live now is to share this story about how mindset is the only thing that matters.” “Timing the market is actually really easy. If you bought in 2006 and you sold in 2010, you got crushed. If you bought in 2006, you sell now, you did fine. You bought at the top of the last market, sell some other times. So, my strategy is, buy whenever you buy, sell when it's high.” “The great part about real estate is it's a levered way to get exposed to inflation.” “Whatever tragedy happens to us, whatever circumstances we find ourselves in, we're called to respond to that in the best possible way and to live the best possible version of our lives.” Links Mentioned: Jeffrey Holst website Jeffrey Holst on Instagram No Bad Days: How to Make Every Day Great by Jeffrey Holst Last Life Ever Podcast Old Fashioned Real Estate Advice Blog Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence by Rick Hanson PhD Crushing It in Apartments and Commercial Real Estate: How a Small Investor Can Make It Big by Brian H.

Jeff graduated early and with honors from Michigan State College of Law where he was the graduating class speaker. He also holds an M.B.A. At 30 years old, Jeff checked the last item off his personal bucket list by climbing Machu Picchu. He was on top of the world. As he stood looking down at the lost Incan city, he had been living the life of his dreams. He was well traveled, having previously visited the Pyramids in Egypt, climbed to the top of Mt Sinai, swam with sharks in Belize, and backpacked alone around Europe. He married the girl of his dreams. He had a beautiful house in the suburbs and a thriving law practice. Two weeks later, he was in the hospital dying. His business was in disarray, his wife was barely holding it together and he was on his way to bankruptcy. Today, at 43 years old, just over a decade later, Jeff is back on top. He is a millionaire, with over 250 residential units and multiple commercial properties in his personal portfolio. He is still married and continues to travel extensively. In February of 2020 Jeff climbed Mt Kilimanjaro and stood at the highest point in Africa. He is the co-host and founder of the Last Life Ever Podcast. As the original “Last Lifer,” Jeff is passionate about helping people live the best possible version of their lives. He is also the co-host of the Old Fashioned Real Estate Show where the hosts drink bourbon old-fashioned and talk about real estate investing.

NOW, they tell us? In today's episode, I'm questioning the timing of this sudden revelation about the coronavirus originating from Wuhan. Why weren't we allowed to discuss this in January 2021? Why is the Administration finally saying this now? Does it have anything to do with the need for more spending on Ukraine and Taiwan? The US Department of Energy just hand-delivered a less than 5-page report saying that Covid 19 most likely originated from a lab in China. Considering Biden tried to shut down the entire investigation into Covid's China origins when he first came to office...only to be forced to reopen the investigation amid a public outcry, we must ask: Why is the Biden administration suddenly so willing to spill the beans on what many already believed to be true? There may be a reason... and, it's not good. I explain. Plus - an update on that mysterious dust. It traveled over Washington DC, too, according to local reports. And, fear is back. The VIX (the volatility index) is at 24 but...I wouldn't be surprised if that's just the beginning. Join me!
