Are your clients not giving you the information you need to plan their events within an orderly timeline? According to host May Yeo Silvers, not communicating realistic timing expectations will negatively impact you, the client, and the event itself. In today's episode, May helps listeners learn how to manage their clients successfully to avoid any unnecessary consequences of poor planning. As event planners, it's normal not to want to seem pushy or rude. However, it's essential to be clear with your clients about what you need and when so that nothing important goes by the wayside. If you let your clients know how you work and your expectations of them, you can ensure that you have the partnership needed to do your job. Since the event results ultimately reflect on you, you must create an accountability timeline for you and your clients to follow. For you to do your job, your clients need to do theirs. Tune into this week's episode of The Unstoppable Eventrepreneur™ to learn more about how to “coach” your clients into fulfilling their end of milestone planning. Quotes • “Lack of planning at your end does not constitute an emergency at my end.” (1:46-1:52 | May) • “When I say how coachable your client is, it's not you coaching the client per se. It's more about from the very beginning when you're qualifying your potential client. You have to be totally honest with yourself and ask yourself this question. After your interaction with the potential client, do you think that you are a good fit for them, and they're a good fit for you? When do I ask if you are a good fit for them? Are they a good fit for you? I'm not talking about whether are you able to do what they asked you to do. Do you have the capability to do what they ask you to do? It goes beyond that.” (2:50-3:38 | May) • “I manage the client. I do not let the client manage me.” (8:18-8:22 | May) • “You have to hold yourself accountable by ensuring that you check your timeline week after week. And you also have to have a system where you set a reminder to chase the information from your client.” (11:20-11:37 | May) • “What your clients can expect from you is important, but what you need from them is equally important. Planning an event is a partnership.” (18:03-18:14 | May) • “Vendors and venues appreciate planners who have a handle of their client.” (20:01-20:07 | May) Links Connect with me at: email@example.com Website: events4anyone.com LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/mayyeosilvers Facebook: www.facebook.com/mayyeosilvers IG: www.instagram.com/mayyeosilvers TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@mayyeosilvers FB private group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/events4anyone Podcast production and show notes provided by HiveCast.fm

[00:01:13] Now, let's get into the show and my guest today, I am hanging out here with Nick, and Nick, you got to tell me your last name. I should have asked you before the show. [00:01:25] Nick: No, that's okay. I tell everybody to just say "does your eye itch?" And that'll about cover it. Okay. It's pronounced (dur zye ich) Drzayich. It's a Serbian name, and it's way too many consonants in a row. [00:01:37] Jason: Nick Drzayich. All right. From Cover Pest. Cool. And is it Cover Pest or just "Cover?" Website says "cover." [00:01:45] Nick: Yeah. Cover Pest. Yeah. [00:01:47] Jason: Cover Pest. Okay, cool. Well Nick, glad to have you on the show. So tell me-- give us a little bit of background. How did you-- and I'll just say for those listening, it says, "pest control solution for property managers," like on your website. So tell me a little bit about Cover Pest, and how did you get into this? [00:02:04] Nick: Come from an insurance background actually. 13 years or so ago, I started and grew a independent life insurance agency, and so that's kind of been my background. Right. And so within insurance, you're obviously taking a big cost in life insurance. There's a death benefit with other insurances. There's big expenses that come at some point throughout the life of a policy and you're taking the cost of that and you're spreading it out among all the policy owners. [00:02:34] Jason: Mm-hmm. [00:02:34] Nick: So kind of with that mindset. I was chatting with my business partner who lives north of me, and he actually runs a pest control company and has for several years. We kind of got to chatting about this combination of life insurance and kind of sharing this cost, spreading the cost out and how you could potentially do that with pest control. And that's how we kind of landed on this idea of using that model to help property management companies take care of their pest control issues, which we know are just a hassle whenever they happen. Yeah. And solve that issue for them and allow them to take that off their plate and add a little bit of revenue in the meantime. Got it. And what areas do you guys cover? Is this a national business? Or is this local? How does this work? Yep. So this is a national business. [00:03:21] We obviously have the ability to go anywhere in the country. We have, we started it here in our home state of Idaho, which is where we have the bulk of our clients. But ultimately, yeah, we we work with vendors across the country to be able to help take care of the issues that, that property managers are seeing. [00:03:37] Jason: Cool. So help me understand how this works. Like why would a property manager decide, Hey, I should work with Cover Pest instead of just use some pest control vendors locally and connect with and have these people in as a feather in my cap. What advantages do they have with working with Cover Pest and why would a property manager choose? Or why do they choose to work with you? [00:03:59] Nick: Yeah. Great question. So. As soon as you mention pest control to a property manager, you're probably going to get just a lot of heartache right there. Whenever an issue comes up, it's technically it's a tenant responsibility. Yeah, but ultimately it's going to come back to the maintenance manager. It's going to come back to the property management company or owner every once in a while. And so they're having to deal with finding a vendor. Vendors got to contact the tenant, get the service done, and then you got to figure out where you're sending the bill, and there's always going to be a fight there. The tenant's not going to want to pay it, the owner doesn't want to pay it, and you, as the property manager, you don't want to pay it either. And the benefit here is that, we work best with companies that have some kind of resident benefit package. So what our service does is it kind of slides right into that resident benefit package, and for a very nominal fee compared to what you would normally pay for pest control, your tenants are able to have all their pest issues covered, and when they need service, they put the request in online-- goes to call. We send a technician out and take care of it. There's no additional cost on top of what that monthly fee is. [00:05:03] So like I mentioned, we kind of slide in the benefit packages. We also work as a standalone amenity for those that either don't want to put us in a benefit package or don't offer a benefit package. [00:05:13] Jason: Got it. So what are what are property managers typically bundling in along with Cover Pest in, you know, in addition to Cover Pest in their resident benefits packages that you're seeing? [00:05:26] Nick: Yeah, so oftentimes we'll see-- a big one is filter service, so furnace filters that are shipped-- [00:05:31] Jason: mm-hmm [00:05:32] Nick: --every few months. There's a lot of times some kind of a credit building aspect to the benefit package. There's usually some kind of a maintenance, a 24 or seven maintenance benefit that's inside of that package. And then a lot of times there'll be some kind of perks. You get a free maintenance request once a year on something that would normally be charged to you, or you have late fee, late payment protection. Once per year, you can make a late payment and not have to worry about any kind of fees. So those are just some of the things that we're seeing inside of benefit packages along with our service. [00:06:03] Jason: Got it. And what are you typically seeing property managers charge for this resident benefit package? And I would assume this is something that they're convincing the tenants to buy as a product. [00:06:15] Nick: Yeah, so ultimately, what we've seen is that the benefit package just rolls right along with the lease agreement. There's not an option there for the tenant to either pay for or not. It just is what it is and you get it. Yep. And they range across the board, right? From, you know, 20 bucks all the way up to 75 plus dollars per month, depending on what's in the package. [00:06:41] So when we were designing our service to be able to slide into a benefit package, we wanted to be super conscious of increasing that at all right because any increase in a benefit package cost is going to come with some kickback initially. And so there's got to be some good value there. So we had that in mind for sure, but they definitely range. They kind of run the gamut of, you know, pretty cheap all the way up to some pretty expensive packages, depending on what's offered. [00:07:08] Jason: Got it. Now you said kickback, but I think you mean push back, right? [00:07:13] Nick: Yeah. [00:07:13] Jason: Okay. All right. Just making sure. People are like, "is there an affiliate thing going on here?" right. Okay. Yeah. Right. The tenants are going to be a little frustrated if it's too expensive and they're going to say, "Well, why am I being forced to do this? I don't know that I need all that stuff." Okay. So then, can you give us an idea of what this would cost? How do you price this with companies? Is this like on a per unit basis that you work out a deal with the property managers? Are there certain rates? Is this something that they just can do on certain properties that they can convince the owners to buy into? How does that typically work? [00:07:48] Nick: Yeah. So when we onboard a company. It's pretty much an all or nothing deal. Right. We want to make sure we cover all of their properties regardless of where they're at and if they have current pest issues. We do work individually on a customized basis with each property management company to decide: "all right, what are you seeing typically pest issue wise? What package makes the most sense, and do we need to customize a package to best fit?" So, at a broad level, we have a couple of different packages. One of 'them is more of a basic package that covers the things that don't typically happen a lot, but when they do happen, it's a real hassle. [00:08:25] So a good example of that would be bed bugs, for example. They don't happen a ton, but when they do, it's a pretty severe cost. [00:08:32] Jason: Right. [00:08:33] Nick: Yep. And and then going up from there, our upper package is a little bit more of the common stuff that people call on a regular basis. Your spiders, your ants, wasps, bees, that sort of thing. And so we do have a couple of packages that we work off of, but we do customize with each company and make sure that we're covering what they want and making it specific to them. [00:08:56] Jason: Got it. I'm sure it differs. Like here in Texas, we have some big bugs and a lot of mosquitoes here in Austin, but yeah, in some markets, I would imagine you've got certain issues that are just typical to that market and then other markets you don't, and it might also have to do with sometimes-- unfortunately might have to do with the class of the property or the area of the property that it's in, how well it's maintained, stuff like that. [00:09:21] Nick: Yeah, for sure. And I mean, ultimately we don't want the tenants to hesitate to call because that's what normally happens, right? They know that they're responsible for it. [00:09:30] Jason: Yeah. [00:09:30] Nick: And so, they don't call and they just kind of sweep it under the rug either literally or figuratively and the pest issue goes untreated and it can get out of hand, and so we want to eliminate that from happening. We want the tenants to feel good about where they live and have it clean. We also want the owners to understand that their property's being taken care of when it's needed and then obviously the property management companies, they don't have to hassle with the back and forth and who's paying the bill. [00:09:57] Jason: So let's make this a little bit real. So let's say you've got a tenant. They've got some pests. I don't know what kind of pests would be a serious issue, but they decide not to call. Give me an example you've heard of, and then it's incurring additional damages that then the owner's going to have to pay for. Can you think of something like that? [00:10:17] Nick: Well, I can tell you that, for example, like an average bed bug cost to remediate is going to be anywhere between 800 and a thousand bucks. [00:10:25] Jason: Okay. [00:10:25] Nick: So right there, you know, our average package is probably around 10 to 12 bucks a month. So if a tenant is paying 10 to 12 bucks a month, they have a bed bug issue, they're paying substantially less than what they would have to pay to have that remediated through just a general pest control company. Those obviously become much bigger issues when you're looking at multi-family situations where units are connected and those bugs can travel. So I've seen that stuff get pretty out of hand, but ultimately we want to get it controlled as, as quickly as we can so that doesn't happen. [00:11:00] Jason: Yeah. I hate roaches. Really don't like those things like yeah. I remember being in some houses, like some just not really nice areas, like visiting some houses and stuff in upstate New York and high humidity, and there were some units that I went in that had some really nasty infestations with cockroaches and some of them are really freaking tiny. They're just running around all over, so. Yeah, I hate those things. [00:11:27] Nick: It's rough. It is nice. Yeah. It's nice for the property manager to have someone else get some eyes on the property every once in a while because typically if you're seeing a lot of bugs, there's a reason. The bugs want to eat. And so there's some cleanliness issues there. So it's nice to be able for us to be able to report on what we're seeing and if we're seeing multiple calls on the same property that's a little bit of a red flag to maybe send someone out there to take a look at the property and have a chat with the tenant. [00:11:52] Jason: Got it. Yeah. So one of the key benefits then is it's giving you greater visibility into some of the problem properties as to what's going on. [00:12:02] Nick: Yeah, absolutely because we're going to track every time we get a service call, and you're going to see that report as well. So we can both kind of keep eyes on it. [00:12:09] Jason: Got it. Okay, cool. So this is something they can build into, you know, along with their leases as part of their resident benefit package. It's not going to increase their costs. Does this become a profit center in any way for property managers or is this just mitigating costs? [00:12:26] Nick: Yeah, we've had property managers use it just to kind of mitigate those costs. No additional revenue. [00:12:32] Jason: Mm-hmm. [00:12:32] Nick: Most of the companies we work with as with everything in their benefit package, they're going to add some kind of a mark up there or an admin fee just for them for kind of doing the work and yeah and setting up the relationship. So it makes perfect sense, so that's what most of them will do. And it's kind of up to them, how much they mark it up, but yeah, there's definitely an additional kind of profit stream there that can be created through using Cover. [00:12:54] Jason: Got it. And certainly some advantages to taking greater care of the property. Cool. So what are the big questions besides the ones you've already touched on that when people come to you, they're really curious to know because I'm sure some of our listeners are probably thinking, "Hey, maybe this is a good idea." [00:13:13] Nick: Yeah. Yeah. So one of the main questions I get is how do we roll it out? Yeah. And a couple different ways. Typically what we'll do is it's a kind of a slow rollout and it's upon lease renewal or a new lease creation. So as you're working with a property management company, they have new leases come up. They'll send us that batch for the month. That's renewing and we'll get them added into the service catalog. We have had companies that have gone in and asked their tenants, "Hey, do you want to opt into this right now in the middle of your lease?" and that option is there as well. [00:13:44] Jason: Have you seen much success with that, with them doing that? What percentage do you see typically? I don't know if you have that data, but... [00:13:52] Nick: that are opting in? [00:13:54] Jason: Yeah. If they put it out to all of their residents for opt in, I'm just curious what the typical response rate is that people are like, "yeah. I'll go ahead and do that." Maybe 10%? [00:14:05] Nick: Yeah. It's not high. Not high-- [00:14:07] Jason: yeah [00:14:07] Nick: because-- [00:14:08] Jason: I would imagine it's like, "Hey spend more money. Do you want to?" And they're like, " yeah." [00:14:11] Nick: exactly. Yep. [00:14:13] Jason: Okay. [00:14:13] Nick: So most frequently, most commonly, it'll be rolled out as leases are renewed and as new properties or leases are assigned, that's the most common way that it's done. [00:14:23] Jason: Okay. Got it. So they sign up with you. You've worked out the pricing based on what sort of package they need, you implement, consult them and help them figure out how they're going to roll this out, and they're probably building this into their lease with some verbiage. You typically provide some verbiage for them to add to their lease as part of this. [00:14:41] Nick: Yep, absolutely. We have some stuff that you can throw in. [00:14:44] Jason: And then they get this rolled out. So then they've got this new maybe profit center, but at least it's being paid for by somebody. It's increasing the visibility. It's decreasing some of the potential costs for the owners. It's protecting the owners. If something gets really bad it could cause a lot of damage. And I'm curious, like, you've mentioned bed bugs, and I mentioned roaches, but what else are you typically seeing causes a lot of damage? I mean, termites, we hear a lot about. Is this something that is checked for or like relevant? [00:15:13] Nick: Yeah. wood destroying bugs like termites are a completely different animal. [00:15:18] Jason: Yeah. [00:15:18] Nick: That's not honestly a part of what we do. It's another specialty altogether. As far as damage is concerned, mice and rats are another one that are-- [00:15:28] Jason: oh yeah. [00:15:28] Nick: --they're out there, and we hear about them and we treat for those. Those ones will come in and cause some real issues. If nothing else, just scaring the crap out of people. [00:15:37] Jason: Yeah, that's true. Yeah. And then, you know, safely doing the cleanup because-- [00:15:42] Nick: right. [00:15:43] Jason: --You know, some issues with some of that stuff, so yeah. [00:15:46] Nick: Yeah. [00:15:47] Jason: And so no on termites, but yes, on bed bugs, roaches and mice and and rats. Okay. Got it. Any other questions that property managers might ask that would be curious about your service or that you'd like them to understand or know? [00:16:02] Nick: Yeah, maybe just to, again point out that sometimes when we go out to do a service the property management company will expect another bill from us or think that there'll be another bill coming, but it's all taken care of. Just in that monthly subscription that's paid for by the tenant. There's no additional fee, no additional cost. We go out and we take care of it. And so that's a common question, common concern. One other one that comes to mind is sometimes they'll be rehabbing a property or making some significant changes to one of their properties and they'll want to stop the service or pause the service. We're definitely open to doing that and have done that. So pausing service during a rehab or big remodel is definitely something we can do. That's one question that has come up in the past as well. [00:16:44] Jason: Unless they potentially could uncover something in the walls during that room. [00:16:49] Nick: Right. Right. Yeah. And that's another thing to mention. Yeah. Another thing to mention is the service kind of runs with the address, not necessarily the tenant, so-- [00:16:59] Jason: okay. [00:16:59] Nick: --if you have a property that maybe sat vacant for a couple months, and you had a maintenance manager out there to check on something and he notice a pest issue. He can just give us a call and we'll go take care of it. Even though there's not a tenant in there, because it kind of runs with the address. [00:17:15] Jason: Got it. And that justifies including it as part of the rent as well. So if you're saying, "Hey, this. This property, in some instances like in California, like you have to usually pay for lawn care if you want the lawn to be maintained because some people just won't do it sometimes, right? So there's certain things you would include. So this would be included. You could then-- that could be a selling point to the tenants. Like this comes with a resident benefit package where it includes this and this, you won't have to worry about pest control. You won't, and these other things. [00:17:46] Nick: Yep, exactly. [00:17:47] Jason: Okay. So potentially as the benefit of helping, sweeten the deal a little bit on a potential rental property for a potential resident, so. [00:17:55] Nick: For sure. Yeah. [00:17:57] Jason: Cool. Well, I think we've covered most of the highlights. This sounds like-- it sounds like a no brainer. It sounds like a good service. Let's tell everybody how to get in touch with you and how to find you. [00:18:10] Nick: Yeah, super easy. Our website is CoverPest.com and you can call me anytime. My number's (208) 477-1330. That's my cell. And you can go on to CoverPest.com, submit a form, and we're happy to chat about creating kind of a custom pricing model for your property management company. [00:18:29] Jason: Cool. So I want to ask one more question. So when they hear you say, "you'll call my cell" and "here's my number," they might be thinking, is this a scalable business? What if somebody has 10,000 doors or they're a big conglomerate, you know, or they're a small property manager. Is this a scalable model for you? Can you handle different size property management companies? [00:18:50] Nick: Yeah, what's nice is that our portal, our backend portal that's a part of our website makes it really easy for property management companies to go in and add their properties to their list. So every time they have a backed upload of lease renewals. They go to the service portal, they put it in there and they're added and they can see exactly which properties are covered in that month. And then, yeah, we work with a network of pest control companies that we use as vendors to service accounts that we get with property management companies in different states, if that makes. [00:19:23] Jason: Got it. So you've got this all figured out really well. I appreciate you coming the show, Nick, and it's been great hearing about Cover Pest. So thanks. Thanks for coming on.

I want to touch base on a few different topics today…1. Why you should use a travel advisor2. Creating your budget for you trip…and I don't like to call it budget3. All inclusive resorts…what is and isn't included So first I am going to chat about travel advisors. I run into so many people today that ask me how much do you charge? My answer is always…nothing. People are amazed. So, I now have a question for all of you. Why then aren't you using a travel advisor? Sure, I hear well I can find it myself on the internet. But do you really want to spend that much time surfing the web. Trying to find just the right vacation and vacation package and then if you are going with a family reunion… tracking down everyone and entering all their stats and taking payment and ….and…and… whew…. I know that when I am going on vacation, I don't want to have to worry about anything I just want to pack my bag grab my passport and go. Do you know that most travel advisors are always learning. They work with vendors to find out all about each one of them and what each one offers. They get emails everyday with updates and specials and sometimes these offers are only offered through the travel advisor. Travel advisors can sit down with you and find out just what you are looking for and then they go to work. Matching you up with just the right vacation. What about if you want to go on a vacation and you don't know where you want to go. A travel advisor can do just that. Advise you of the many opportunities that are out there that you would like. And they do this all for free…. Now I am not going to lie to you. Some travel advisors do charge for their services…Why? Well I will tell you. There are few reasons…one is. Clients will call get the TA to do all the foot work and then turn around and book it themselves. That's not very nice. Also, if the TA goes above and beyond the call of duty…for instance…Visa research and paper follow up. Something that should be handled by the traveler. Travel advisors also go on trips to research some of these places and sailings and hotels. They can actually speak from experience. I do the same things. Like sailing on Virgin Voyages etc. I love this adage “been there, done that” You here me all the time saying I know a TA that went there. TA's also talk with each other. Yes we actually communicate with one another to find out information about certain places. This way we can give you first hand experience of the place you are planning on going to. Sometimes and this is rare but sometimes. If you call your Travel Advisor…and they know absolutely nothing about a certain vacation, they will call their TA friend who handles that, and they help. Yes. TA's help each other.Vendors work closely with TA's because they want the TA's selling their product. So they to make sure it's all good.Now the next thing I want to bring up is Budget…. I don't like the word budget. I know everyone has one. But its not really budget…its what is this trip worth to you. Are you celebrating a special anniversary. Or is it the first time you are doing a multi-generation trip. It may be the last time great grandma gets to go along. These things are priceless. So here are a few things you should ask of yourself. What do I expect from this vacationWhat do I want to experienceWho will be coming alongAre we celebrating anything…. (any milestone…college graduation/high school graduation/made it through Chemo…50th wedding anniversary)What do I want to do on this trip. Sky diving/kayaking/see penguins or polar bears/

Hanging onto farmers market vendors can be like herding cats! Often times they are creative, independent business owners who like to do their own thing. While it's true that vendors will come and go and the occasional turnover is just part of farmers market life. However there are numerous things market managers can do on an organization level to keep vendors consistently coming back week after week. In this episode of Tent Talk we discuss strategies for retaining farmers market vendors, maintaining longterm vendor relationships, and how to coach new vendors through the first few months of a new market. Tune in to hear how you can keep a consistent roster of farmers and vendors season to season and year over year. This week's episode is made possible by support from Square.

Health codes and food regulations used to be so complex that many vendors on California sidewalks and at beaches couldn't get permits. It all changes thanks to Gov. Newsom signing SB 972. SoCal is facing a third year of La Niña, meaning drier and hotter conditions with no end in sight, according to National Weather Service Meteorologist Eric Boldt. Mission Viejo City Councilmembers Wendy Bucknum, Greg Raths, and Ed Sachs were sued by a resident last month for improperly extending their term limits. Will they be forced to step down?
This episode has been 30 weeks in the making since we released our first Budgeting Episode over 6 months ago. It has also been our most requested episode so this week we are sharing the total cost of our Wedding with the world! We broke it down for you guys into categories such as Venue Hire, Attire Costs, Vendors, Food, Decor & More so hopefully that will make it easily digestible and let you see what all of the individual costs were. Everything is in here and this is as open and honest as we can possibly be with just how expensive our Wedding was. I am sure the final number will shock people (in both a good and bad way) but we hope it can open your eyes to the costs of getting married and all the little expenses you should be prepared for. We also dive into some of the ways we saved money on our Wedding so definitely listen through until the end to hear those little gems. Enjoy and Happy Budgeting :) Be sure to follow us on Instagram @tobewed_ podcast for all the inside Goss, extra tips and tricks and to vote on what episode you think we should do next. If you enjoyed this episode please consider sharing this episode with friends or family members who you think would also enjoy it!

Fraudology is presented by https://seon.io/ (SEON). As a continuation of Tuesday's episode (from Sept. 20), Karisse dives into the do's & don'ts of 2 more stages of the sales cycle with online anti-fraud and Trust & Safety technology solution providers. From the worst mistakes a salesperson can make during the initial sales call to how to navigate the follow-up process, including when a prospect "ghosts" you. The biggest goal of this two-part mini-series is to help both solution providers and their prospects (merchants/banks/marketplaces, etc) understand a little more about each other's roles & perspectives. While the majority of this episode is geared towards solution providers, it is equally important for the buyer's in this process to better understand the pressures that those working for fraud-tech vendors are under; especially in the last few months. Fraudology is hosted by Karisse Hendrick, a fraud fighter with decades of experience advising hundreds of the biggest ecommerce companies in the world on fraud, chargebacks, and other forms of abuse impacting a company's bottom line. Connect with her on https://www.linkedin.com/in/karissehendrick/ (LinkedIn) She brings her experience, expertise, and extensive network of experts to this podcast semi weekly, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
This past Saturday, 9/17, my photographer husband Tim exhibited his photographic art at a show in TX. We drove the day before to get set up, and we discovered a completely chaotic setting. When we asked where our booth was, the response was – and I quote – Just take the next available spot. Now, bear in mind, there were no spots! The festival was in a mall parking lot on black asphalt lined for cars – but no markings for booths. We also discovered, despite the marketing materials, that it was in a dying mall. So, we did the best we could and set up the booth. Saturday morning, we arrived around 8:30 am to finish the setup. It is still very unorganized, but we got everything done and waited for the grand opening at 10 – we were pumped! And then… 10:00 arrived and no visitors. We waited. And waited. We were realizing that this didn't seem like a “real” art show. It appeared thrown together, not marketed, and in an almost deserted parking lot. The temperature was forecast to be around 95 degrees with a heat index of over 100. As the morning went on, the heat went up. And up. And up. Neither Tim nor I do well in temperature extremes, and he has intense outdoor allergies. We felt worse and worse as time drug on. By 3:00 pm we had seen 5 people. Vendors started tearing down, and we had to make the tough decision to do the same. By the time we arrived at our hotel, sorry to give you TMI, but we got 2 wet wash cloths, stripped off our clothes, turned the air on high, and lay on the sofa and bed for almost an hour. I'm certain Tim was nearing a heat stroke. So were we quitters? Join me as I walk you through the process of deciding: quitting or quitter!

Fraudology is presented by https://seon.io/ (SEON). Following the recent replay of the first edition of the episode titled "Merchants are from Mars, vendors are from Venus" from 2019, several listeners have requested an updated version. Over the last 3 years, a lot has happened to change the merchant/vendor (buyer/seller) relationship within online fraud and Trust & Safety, and Service Providers. The pandemic changed a lot including transaction/account volumes and fraud tactics & methods targeting online companies. VC money was flowing from an endless faucet....and then, within the past few months, has dried up with no promise of when investors will be ready to write more checks. Also due to recent economic downturns, budgets for online companies w/ fraud issues are being cut, with fraud-fighters sighting "Expected to do more with less" as their #1 cause of work stress in Q3 2022. So, in this first part of the 2022 edition of this episode, Karisse talks about some of the factors that are causing solution providers to be stressed out, and at times, pushy & desperate; and, also why it's not always reasonable to expect a reply to an email from a prospect. She also provides do's & don'ts for content marketing and initial sales emails & calls from vendors to fraud-fighting practitioners. On Thursday's episode, Karisse will provide more advice for vendors & merchants throughout the 1st 1/2 of the sales cycle. Fraudology is hosted by Karisse Hendrick, a fraud fighter with decades of experience advising hundreds of the biggest ecommerce companies in the world on fraud, chargebacks, and other forms of abuse impacting a company's bottom line.

Fresh 2 Death Exhibition was a two day showcase event that took place Sept 10-11 at Camp North End in CLT. The event, labeled Fashion StreetWhere, was brought to you by designers who created installments to highlight their contribution to the fashion scene in the CLT community and beyond. From fashion studios, models, Cars, Vendors, and an influx of patrons that stepped foot in the building you can feel the energy and a shift in culture to show what the city has cooking. The weekend was capped off by a fashion show that featured the designers for the weekend. WGN had an opportunity to set up shop and do a bit of "speed podding" to highlight the experience. I will be bringing you 3 parts of conversations with individuals involved in making this event a success. Special thanks to Dupp & Swatt and Crownkeepers for letting me be apart of this great event! #WhoGotNext #CLTure
Bible Reading: Psalm 119:162-168Willow stood at the entrance to the flea market and gazed at the noisy scene. Vendors and customers were talking loudly to be heard, and booths full of dishes, toys, books, and furniture spread out through the whole building. "Wow! What a lot of stuff!" she exclaimed as she ran to catch up with her mother. "Are you looking for something special?" "Aunt Helen's birthday is next week, so I thought maybe we could find a candy dish for her," replied Mom. "She likes old-fashioned things.""Yeah, she says they have character." Willow pointed. "The booth over there has dishes." So they went to look and soon found one they liked."I'm ready to go," said Mom after paying for the dish. "How about you?""Can I look at those books first?" asked Willow, pointing toward another booth."Okay," said Mom, "but don't go out of this aisle. I'll look at some other things along here."Among the old books, Willow found a big, tattered family Bible. If it's old enough, it might be worth a lot, she thought. She checked to see how much it cost and found that it was only fifty cents. So she promptly bought it and went to show her mother. "Look, Mom. Do you think this Bible is old enough to be worth a lot of money?""Did you check the date in the front to see when it was printed?" asked Mom."I didn't think of that." Willow checked the date and was disappointed to find that the Bible wasn't very old at all.That evening, Willow showed her dad the Bible she had bought. "I thought I might be getting a priceless treasure, but I forgot to check the date to see if it's really old." She sighed dramatically. "It isn't. The good part is that it only cost fifty cents.""Oh, but it's still priceless," Mom assured her. "It's the Word of God, which is valuable beyond measure."Dad nodded. "The Bible tells us how we can have eternal life through Jesus, and it offers us guidance and encouragement as we go through life with Him. Mom's right--even though you can't sell it for a lot of money, you bought a priceless treasure at the flea market today."-Harriett A. DurrellHow About You?Do you have a priceless treasure--a Bible? No matter what you paid for your Bible, it is valuable. The paper may not be the finest, and the binding may not be the softest leather. But the Word of God--which is written inside--is priceless. It's full of God's treasure--the truth and promises of Jesus. Read it so you can discover the priceless treasure He wants to share with you. Today's Key Verse:I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure. (NKJV) (Psalm 119:162)Today's Key Thought:The Bible is true treasure

If you're a wedding photographer, perhaps at some time during your career, fellow vendors have asked you if you can share some images from events with them. Creating a gallery for vendors after weddings have been one of the easiest marketing strategies I have implemented in my business, as it helps me build a relationship with them, while also exposing my work to their audience. In today's episode, I cover the importance of sharing your work with fellow vendors, and how to do it to minimize exposure. I even share an email template with my friends on Patreon, so they can communicate expectations with vendors. -- ARE YOU READY TO LEVEL UP YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS?

The Big Themes:Speaking the Same Language: Decision-makers accelerate change by embracing industry and vertical cloud with vendors who can understand the transformation of their industries to co-create to grow the business.Buyer Motivations Are Shifting: Vendors need to understand the expectations of today's companies to fulfill promises to ensure they can deliver on the benefits to customers.Features and Function, Not Pricing: Not a new concept. However, decision-makers in the marketplace are experiencing a level of change behind technology-driven features for their P&L.The Big Quote: "…I do think if there's a shift in…who actually sits around that, that boardroom table, I think there's a substantial shift there today, and an exciting one actually for a lot of companies, as long as they can adapt to it."This episode is brought to you by BMC Software.
The Big Themes:Events evolved: As attendees adapt to hybrid shows, understanding what changed enables people to leverage both in-person and online benefits of industry shows.Get creative, opt for flexibility: Hospitality resources may be short-staffed, travel could be affected, or speakers might not be able to attend in person. Event organizers can help vendors increase visibility by going online, conference speakers into the event, and holding virtual meetings.Do your homework to lay the proper groundwork: Outline plans on which vendors to see, sessions to attend, and how to divide and conquer with other colleagues attending. Have you thought of social media to amplify your presence as a leader?Bring it home and take it forward: Vendors look at the opportunity to connect with customers in high-quality conversation and seek feedback to achieve solutions and understand experiences while engaging with business leaders.The Big Quote: “It's those pure insights that are equally as important to watching and making sure that feature function during a software demo is what you need…certainly the vendor relationship is important, but the experience of your peers is going to speak volumes about if that is real.“This episode is brought to you by BMC Software.
In this episode we discuss whether it is permissible for a Landlord to charge a late fee to his tenants. This discussion is also relevant to Vendors who want to charge penalties to customers who are late to pay their invoices,

We'll have all this and more on the Marietta Daily Journal podcast! Commercial STORY 1:Ponzi A year after a #Marietta man with broad holdings in the #Chattanooga, Tennessee, area was accused of running a massive Ponzi scheme, investors who were allegedly bilked may soon learn how they'll get money back. A method for distributing money, garnered from the sale of assets, is expected to be discussed at a court hearing on September 9th before U.S. District Court Judge Steven D. Grimberg of Atlanta, according to court filings. There's no indication how much of the money from the asset sales, which are still ongoing, will be available to share between investors or when distributions may take place, court papers show. Losses to investors to date amount to about $68.2 million, filings show. In August 2021, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission alleged that John Woods operated the Ponzi scheme for more than a decade and defrauded more than 400 investors. John, who at the time was a minority owner of the Chattanooga #Lookouts #MinorLeagueBaseball team and had overseen operations of an investment firm in the city, allegedly collected $110 million from investors with promises of 6-7% returns. But the #SEC said in court papers that investments John made in a number of companies and in real estate deals, several in Chattanooga, were worth far too little for there to be any realistic prospect of paying back investors their principal, much less the promised returns. An SEC spokesman declined to comment beyond the court filings earlier this month. John in court filings has denied the allegations by federal regulators of running the Ponzi scheme and asked for a jury trial in the civil case. He has not been charged criminally. STORY 2:Fire The Marietta @Fire Department was on the scene of a fire early Sunday evening at the Cobb courthouse complex in downtown Marietta. Five Marietta firetrucks responded to the scene. #CobbCountySheriff's Office said the fire was in Building D, Magistrate Court Building. The courthouse is closed Sundays. No injuries were reported. One eyewtiness said at the onset of the fire, flames could be seen coming from the roof of the building. As of 6:30 p.m., the blaze had been contained and firefighters continued to monitor for hot spots. STORY 3:UNLV Even after #UNLV football's largest margin of victory under Marcus Arroyo, the third-year head coach said he wasn't afraid to admit that there were still some areas that need improvement. But for now, he took time to enjoy the #Rebels' 52-21 season-opening win over Idaho State Saturday at Allegiant Stadium. Michigan State transfer #RickyWhite made an impact in the second quarter, starting off by hauling in a 72-yard touchdown pass from Brumfield. All 182 of his receiving yards and both touchdowns came during UNLV's 35-0 showing in the second quarter. Ricky is a former standout for #MariettaHighSchool. The Rebels have a bye next weekend and travel to face #California in #Berkeley on September 10th. STORY 4:Princess ***Audio MDJ Cinderella*** ***Audio Cinderella Instrumental BED*** The Marietta High School Theatre hosted aspiring #princesses and their parents Saturday for a morning of dancing, singing, and fun at the Once Upon a Tea Party fundraiser show. The Marietta Performing Arts Center was packed Saturday as students dressed up as different themed princes, princesses, and sidekicks from the #Disney character world and beyond. Music from princess-themed movies played as cast members at the school danced and performed on stage, as the auditorium of the center was transformed into something befitting #WorldPrincessWeek, an annual event going on at #DisneyParks this week. The Once Upon a Tea Party event was introduced five years ago when Holly Smith, the schools' head theater director, met another teacher at a convention who shared the fundraising idea with her. Similar to a Disney character breakfast, the event starts with the student performers walking about the set up tables in the lobby, visiting with kids as their princess personas while they enjoyed cupcakes and coloring. The crowd then gathered in the auditorium where students performed different numbers from Disney shows, concluding with the kids being brought on stage to learn the waltz from different characters. The students rehearse for a period of three weeks, starting production work and auditions in July, practicing two to three times a week. The students were eager to dive into their roles, only needing a combined 12 hours of rehearsal time before they were ready. The funds raised through the event benefit the booster organization of the theater department. The booster organization helps cover the cost of department productions, costumes, props, field trips, conferences and college scholarships. Last year, the booster organization was able to provide two college scholarships to students. Commercial Commercial STORY 5:International The #CobbInternationalFestival returned this weekend for the first time following a two-year hiatus due to #COVID-19. The event center of Jim R. Miller Park saw heavy foot traffic for the entirety of the six-hour event. People were eager to soak in all of the local and international music, shows and a wide variety of international cuisine offered by the many vendors surrounding the pathways. Returning for the first time since its debut in 2019, the festival shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Michael Brantley, director of Cobb County Parks and Recreation. Michael said he and his team recently noticed more people wanting to get out of the house and do things, and they knew it was time to restart the festival. Parks and Recreation coordinated the festival, according to Cobb County Commission Chairwoman #LisaCupid, and pulled staff from across different Cobb County agencies to help plan the event. Vendors paid a fee for each table set up.. Lisa Cupid spoke to the crowd early Saturday afternoon, officially kicking off the event. She invited different consulate representatives on stage to share greetings in their native languages, including members from South Korea, Ghana, Nigeria and Canada, to name a few. STORY 6: Kell #Kell is on its first winning streak of the Bobby May era. The #Longhorns jumped in front early while holding #Allatoona to just 113 yards of offense and taking advantage of four Buccaneer turnovers to win 21-9 on Friday in their home opener at #CobbEMC/#CorkyKellStadium. It allowed Kell to continue the momentum it gained from beating Cherokee Bluff to begin the season in last week's Corky Kell Classic. Allatoona threw two interceptions in the second quarter — the second coming on an attempted touchdown pass — and changed quarterbacks. However, what hurt the Buccaneers the most was a bad snap midway through the second quarter, which Kell's Nelson Woghiren scooped up and returned 59 yards for a touchdown. Allatoona's lone touchdown of the game came midway through the fourth when it recovered a high snap from Kell at the Longhorns' 1-yard line. Quarterback Saadiq Teel punched it in on the next play to cut the Kell lead to 12 points. The Buccaneers' only points of the first half came on a 47-yard field goal by Grey Kelley. .

In this episode of the Talking Lead Podcast: Lefty and the BMMC Crew (Bold Moves Motorcycle Club) talk about our 11 day, 2020 miles, epic road trip to Sturgis, SD for Gunfest during the 82nd Motorcycle Rally. Joining Lefty to tell the madcap road trip adventures is Chad Enos and Ty Mericle with Kel Tec Weapons, Rick Stewart and Gabe Wren with American Zealot Productions and a surprise visit from the Squatch. This was the first year of the Gunfest Range Day event. Vendors which attended were Kel Tec Weapons; IWI US; Sig Sauer; Springfield; Walther; Gunbroker; Silencer Central to name a few. It was held at the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, SD. Although attendance was thin, due to the lack of advertising and miscommunication between Gunfest organizers and the Buffalo Chip organizers, it has the potential to be one of the premier Range Day events in the Industry. We discuss some of the things they got right and the areas that need improvement. Talking Lead Podcast - "Leaducating The Unleaducated" since 2012

A 40-year-old man who collects bones and other human remains was arrested for allegedly trying to sell body parts on Facebook. A report indicates that the East Pennsboro Township Police Department received a call on June 14 about suspicious activity in the 200 block of North Enola Road. On arrival, officers found Jeremy Pauley, who had allegedly been buying human body parts from a female in Arkansas. The remains were found in Enola, Arkansas, and Scranton, and were reportedly being sold on Facebook. According to reports, Pauley owns and operates The Grand Wunderkammer, which describes itself on Facebook as "Vendors of the odd and unusual, museum exhibits, guest lectures, live entertainment, and so much more!"." Pauley's personal Facebook page shows buckets of bones and other remains, including femurs, vertebrae, a pelvis, clavicles, and "pounds and pounds of teeth." The East Pennsboro Township Police Department, Cumberland County Forensics, and the Cumberland County Coroner's Office searched Pauley's home, according to court records cited by WHTM-TV. During their search, they found several large buckets containing human body parts, including skin, a heart, a spleen, two brains, two livers, two lungs, and other organs. Pauley allegedly bought $4,000 worth of remains from the woman in Arkansas, including half a head, three brains with skull caps, one heart, four hands, a female pelvis, and more. According to police, he intended to resell the items. The woman reportedly shipped the parts via the United States Postal Service. She allegedly stole the remains from a mortuary run by the University of Arkansas. The package was intercepted by Pennsylvania State Police in Scranton, Pennsylvania, according to WNEP-TV, which also cites court documents. Pauley told detectives he collected "oddities," and police noted many of the relics were legitimate purchases. It was reported that Pauley was released on $50,000 unsecured bail after being charged with abuse of a corpse, receiving stolen property, and dealing in proceeds of unlawful activity.
