I'm Menachem Lehrfield. Welcome to Zero Percent, where we explore world-changing ideas from Judaism, ancient wisdom for modern living. The past few weeks, we've been exploring Carol Dweck's mindset research, and I'm really excited to jump into it, to understand where we see all of these fascinating earth-shattering ideas within Judaism. We'll explore Jewish thought, Jewish ritual, and Jewish custom. In our first episode, we talked about how Jewish success is not so much about the Jewish people as much as it is about Judaism. And I think this is where we'll really see it come to life. I like to say that we're looking at a 3000-year-old case study on the growth mindset, that if you spend 3000 years developing a growth mindset, this is the result.It's not so much about just the things that we teach our children and teach ourselves. It's not just about the ideas that we study and we learn, which are crucially important. But even more so it's about how organically we give over this growth mindset research in our everyday lives. And that's why we're not just going to explore Jewish thought. We're going to then go into Jewish practice, our life cycle events. How do we mark the different parts of our lives and how through that marking do we not just encourage but really build that growth mindset? We'll then explore the different Jewish holidays and how each holiday throughout our year, we go through the cycle of the year and as we go through the cycle of the year, we are constantly focusing on and building that growth mindset.To introduce Carol Dweck's research through a Jewish lens, I've created the acronym, BE FREE, six different points, six different steps that we're going to focus on in the coming episodes. Number one, the B stands for be curious. The idea of cultivating curiosity, the idea of when somebody has a growth mindset, they care about being smart, not just looking smart.Number two is the idea of enjoying the journey, being process-focused instead of product-focused. Understanding that everything is a process that takes time, that takes effort, and learning to enjoy that process. Number three, the F, stands for failure is not a permanent condition. Understanding the importance of failure in our growth and looking at failure as a part of that journey, not this crushing, all-encompassing end of the process.Number four, the R, is recognize the uniqueness of each person. Understanding that every person is different, every person learns differently, every person has different strengths, different weaknesses, and the importance of recognizing the uniqueness of each person. Number five is the E, is effort is the key to mastery, not a sign of weakness. The importance, as we talked about in the last episode, of praising process and effort, not the result. And lastly, number six, the second E, is everyone can change. Understanding that I'm not defined by my natural gifts or the way I am right now, but rather I can constantly change. I can constantly become better, more proficient, constantly I'm going through this process of change and why it's so crucially important to never praise natural ability. If I understand that everyone can change, then the way I am right now, or the way I was born, really has very little to do with the person I can become. And that's BE FREE. And we'll go through the next couple episodes going through each one of those six points.Before we do, I just want to explain why I chose the paradigm, the concept of freedom to present this research. I want to spend the rest of our episode today just exploring the Jewish concept of freedom. What does freedom really mean? We, as Americans living in the United States of America, think we understand everything there is to know about freedom. After all, we're living in a country that was founded and is really all about freedom, that that's what America's all about. The land of the free and the home of the brave.But what is freedom really? I always found it interesting, you never hear someone shout, "Hey, it's a free country," when they're doing something nice. You ever notice that? You ever see someone like hold the door open for somebody, and then as they walk in, they say, "Oh, thank you so much." You say, "It's a free country." People only talk about how it's a free country when they're being obnoxious and they're doing something they're not supposed to do. It's never like done with this, "Oh, it's a free country." It's always, "Hey, it's a free country. I can do whatever I want." And the reason is that that's the American concept of freedom, which is very different from the Jewish concept of freedom.The American concept of freedom is I am free to. I am free to vote. I am free to bear arms, let's say. I don't want to get into anything political. I am free to practice my religion. I am free to do X, Y, and Z. There are many things that this great land affords me the ability to do. The Jewish concept of freedom is different. It's not just the ability to do X, Y, and Z, which I'm not saying is unimportant. Obviously, it's important to live in a place where I have the freedom to vote, to practice my religion, to speak, to fill in the blank. The Jewish concept is that I am free from. See, freedom is really about having the ability to do what I know is right, to do the right thing, and to be free from anything that's holding me back from that. Each one of us has the potential for greatness. Everyone does. But we get held back by all kinds of things. Freedom is the ability to break free from that which is holding me back and to become great.You see, when you look at Judaism, in America, we're very into our rights, and rights are important. But when you look at Torah Judaism, there's not a single right overtly mentioned anywhere in the Torah. The Torah never says you have a right to anything. What it does say is you are obligated. You have an obligation. And if we each fulfill our own obligations, then everybody else has rights. I am obligated not to infringe upon your property. I am obligated to ensure that you're taken care of. I am obligated to fill in the blank. If every single person upholds their obligations, so then by default, we all have rights. The point is, where is the focus? Is the focus on me and what's coming to me, or is the focus on what am I responsible to make sure I don't do to somebody else? So we end up with the exact same rights.In fact, we gave the entire world the concept of rights. We gave the world the concept of equality before the law. We gave the world the concept that every human being has inherent value and should be treated as such. We gave the world those concepts. We gave the world the value of rights. But we did so by focusing on responsibility. Victor Frankl writes that we should have on the West Coast a statue of responsibility to counterbalance the Statue of Liberty on the East Coast. And together, they would create this equilibrium, so to speak. Because we live in a world where we're so focused on our rights that we forget about our responsibility. That might be a point of semantics, but the semantics are very important.The analogy I always give is Halloween versus Purim. So on Halloween, what happens? Children go knocking door to door, threatening people and saying trick or treat, which essentially means either give me something or I'm going to do something bad to you. That's literally what it means. Trick or treat. Give me a treat or I'm going to play a trick. So you teach your children to go knocking door to door, taking and say, give me, give me, give me, give me. And then at the end of the day, they have a bag full of candy. But what do they do? That entire day was reinforcing selfishness and taking. Purim, we go door to door. But instead of taking, we spend our entire day giving one another. At the end of the day, the child who celebrated Purim and the child who celebrated Halloween have the same amount of candy in their bag, because one child spent his day giving and one child spent his day taking. It's all a matter of perspective.So we can spend our lives focusing on our rights, mine, mine, mine, me, me, me, or I can focus on my responsibility, my obligation. When we look at real freedom, freedom is the ability to act independent of what everybody else thinks. The freedom to act independent of what I used to believe about myself, about the world. Freedom means that I have the ability to grow as a human being. And just because I was one way yesterday, doesn't mean I'm stuck being that way forever. [inaudible 00:10:30] Noah Weinberg used to say, and I quote this often, "Never be afraid to discover that the real you is different from the current you." I am not defined by who I am right now. I am not defined by the natural way I came into this world. I am not defined by the way you define me. That is real freedom. That's what it means to truly be free.For full transcript, visit: www.joidenver.com/zeropercent/5---be-free

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:  Leanne: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a question regarding FASD, Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder. What advice can you give for a 9yr old boy affected by FASD? Symptoms are vast but include sleep issues, mood and behavioral problems, learning difficulties, ADD type behaviors although we've had an assessment for autism and add and there was no diagnosis given. Any input you have will be gratefully received! Thanks. Josh: Hey I have been having an issue with an ingrown toenail. I've had a round of antibiotics and a podiatrist trimmed the nail and didn't do the full procedure. Going back for a checkup on Sept 21. I think the nail is getting infected again, I've been soaking it in epson salt and treating it with neosporin. I've just recently learned of your podcast and was wondering what could I treat my toe with instead of neosporin, didn't realize that it was an antibiotic. Thanks! Tammi: Dr Cabral, Thank you for all the information you provide on your show. I have been listening to your show for quite some time and often though man this guy discusses mold lot. I realize that mold can be a huge issue but coming from the West Coast with our dry heat there's never really an issue. I also have lived in Japan but we had dehumidifiers in each room so still mold and mildew were never an issue. Fast forward to a few weeks ago (the beginning of August) my husband, our 13 month old and I moved to Boston. Now I'm blown away and get that mold is a crazy real thing here, that I just don't know how to manage. For example, I bought a watermelon less than a week later when my husband went to cut it there was mold underneath the watermelon. Our bathroom is constantly mildewy despite the dehumidifier being right outside the door. Our water bottles need to be scrubbed weekly even if they only contain water… I have asked several people we have met about the humidity, how they manage it in there homes and I really just don't get any response other than yea it's an issue. Could you please explain to someone who just does not know how to manage the humidity here, what do I need to be doing to manage it and to keep our family safe? Thank you Feeling ridiculous and lost Chad: Hello Dr. Cabral, love everything you do. For the past 6 months I have been miserable in my own home with near crippling allergies. When I wake up in the morning my eyes are swollen and itchy, I sneeze about 20 times and my head feels like it's underwater. The worst part is that my sinuses are swollen shut so breathing my nose is next to impossible. I'm almost positive the allergen is in my house ie. mold, dust mites, or some other indoor allergen. What would your advice be for the first step to solving this so that I can get my life back to normal. Thank you very much, Chad Samantha: Hi Dr Cabral, After running my big 5 labs it was recommended I stick to a low oxalate diet. I have read this will help with kidney stones although I haven't had any as of yet, I'm 43, but my question is if it has any connection to help with tonsil stones? I am currently starting the CBO protocol with my mom and hoping it will cure the chronic tonsil stones but if it hasn't I'm hoping to find another answer. I have listened to all previous podcasts on tonsil stones and have followed all advice regarding gargles etc BUT maybe the CBO will get me there as I know it's a biggie. I just wonder if eating low oxalate could help as well?? Thank you so much Dr Cabral. You truly are amazing. June: Hello, I have been a long timer follower, dedicated to the detox protocol and beyond. With all the podcasts available and the search engine supplied, i am unable to find a podcast that would support my dilemma. My son who has a two year old is suffering from excema and has been prescribed multiple doses of steroids “GULP” (against my counsel) is now reaching out to me for help. What podcast would be best to send to him regarding this issue. As much as I try, I cannot find out the 100's of podcasts one that speaks to this directly.

A really cool software to manage all of your properties that an asset management layer, as well as a property management company called Great Jones. And altogether it's a it's a really powerful stack of real estate technology tools and operations for investors to have and we brought on the founders from all of these different companies.   So we have Gary Beasley from Roofstock, who was a co founder. We have the two co founders from Stessa in Heath Silverman and Jonah Schwartz. And we have two co founders from great Jones and Jay Goldklang, as well as Abigail Besdin. And we ask them about their company, the fit within the roofstock ecosystem, some pearls of wisdom on investing on starting companies, all of that good stuff. So really excited about the episode we have today. And let's get into it.   Michael: All right, everyone. Well, thank you for taking the time out of your very, very, very busy schedule. We've got a lot of heavy hitters on the line here. So I would love if you could all introduce yourselves to our listeners. One by one. Gary, you want to kick things off? We'll start with you.   Gary: Sure. Great to be here. I'm Gary Beasley. I'm the co founder and CEO of Roofstock.   Michael: Fantastic. And Abigail.   Abigail: Hi, I'm Abigail Besdin. And I am a co founder of Great Jones.   Michael: Perfect Jay.   Jay: Hi, I'm Jay Goldklang, founder and CEO of Great Jones now a Roofstock company.   Michael: And Heath.   Heath: Hey, I'm Heath Silverman, co-founder of Stessa.   Michael: And last but certainly not least, Jonah.   Jonah: Yeah, I'm Jonah Schwartz, co-founder of Stessa,   Michael: And we've got Tom Schneider on the line as well.   So I would love if you all could share, why Roofstock, Stessa, Great Jones decided to join forces. What was the impetus behind that?   Gary: When we first started Roofstock we knew not only did we want to have a marketplace for transactions, but we wanted to build deeper relationships with owners and build a community. And to do that, we knew that we needed to be relevant to all property owners who own single family rentals, not just those who are looking to trade at any given time. And so from the very early days, we were trying to figure out how to do that. And I met Heath and Jonah was 2017. Yeah, 2017. And we just hit it off right away. And I said, Wow, these guys are building something really cool that it could provide software for every single family rental owner out there. And like a Credit Karma app for real estate owners, it'd be a great way to stitch together community get a lot of data and and invite people into the marketplace at the right time.   So we had a marketplace and no community they had this great community they were building through the software. And so when I knew that it would be quite interesting to try to bring the companies together. Unfortunately, they decided to sell their company to JLL and not to us, JLL at the time was a little bit larger than Roofstock still is. But we'll talk about later life comes full circle very recently we were able to buy the business from gll and bring them into the Rootstock family and so that's worked out really well.   And then with with Jay and Abigail we also knew that we needed to have a relevant connectivity to retail owners and offer property management because that's the biggest pain point for owners is to be able to outsource a lot of those challenging tasks to professionals and and so we've been tracking Jay Abigail and Great Jones for a long time. There was an opportunity this year to get together get to know each other more recently and that was sort of the one missing piece of our fully integrated platform was retail property management. We have institutional grade property management through Streetlane, which was the first company that we purchased a couple of years ago and now with Great Jones and with Stessa we've all kind of come into the the ecosystem together one big happy family under the Rootstock umbrella.   And now we're in the process of integrating the businesses and, and, and growing. So. So why don't we turn it over to maybe Heath or Jonah, maybe you go first and then Jay, Abigail, you could you could chat about how, how this all has worked for you guys.   Heath: Yeah, I mean, I don't know if I have anything additional to add other than I still remember those drinks we had back in 2017, where we got introduced and started sort of as a more casual conversation about what we were doing and turned into a couple hours of just diving deep into both of our businesses. And I think it was just very refreshing and super exciting to meet somebody who had, you know, the same big vision, you know, of how do we bring transparency and accessibility to this asset class, that traditionally was just one that, you know, was hard for a lot of people to get into, and just didn't have great technology to help power investors out there. So, yeah, fantastic, it came full circle, we're super excited to be part of rootstock. And yeah, excited to see what we're gonna do together.   Jay: I think Heath and I, and also Gary and I have talked about how similar some of the visions are, that we've articulated, maybe the starting points have been a little bit different, because there's a lot to do. But sort of, I think each of us are organically as heard from, you know, the owners we work with, and to some extent, the residents that we work with, how many different moments they they'd like to, you know, have our partnership or, or, you know, partnership with like minded folks to think about using technology or operations to sort of remove friction and let them focus on on what they enjoy doing best. And I would say, you know, really, for the last 12 to 18 months, we've felt even more pull to help our customers, you know, buy more assets, dispose of assets, make good decisions. And so, you know, when, when there came an opportunity to come together, you know, not just in a partnership, but but but more than that with Roofstock. And also with the Stessa. Folks, it's been really exciting to get to work together, you know, to take take on the world, but with a with a shared vision.   Jonah: Yeah, we hear that from a lot of our customers as well, that they're, you know, what, what they get from stessa is great, but they'd love for us to do more, they want sort of that one stop shop, full stack solution to a lot of these problems, including transaction, including property management. So, you know, fitting together and putting out one solution for our customer base, or shared customer base makes a lot of sense.   Tom: I think what's so neat about these three companies is just solving, you know, three very different problems, from transactions to ownership to asset management. I think a lot of times as a startup, you know, you can have really big eyes and be like, Oh, you know, we want to do all of this, and it works really wonderfully. When it's able to come together. All together, I'd love to hear kind of the evolution that you guys had kind of originally, you know, was it always kind of to build out this full stack on your own? Or was it you know, more niche, I'd love to hear just kind of the evolution of your thought of the strategy of the business. And you know how that unfolded into where we're at today, which I think is a really nice platform, I'll say.   Abigail: I could take the great John's piece there. But it sounds like we're all describing a different starting point that very quickly led to this broader vision. Because ultimately, that's what we all learned pretty quickly, the customer wanted a no friction, one stop shop for the full puzzle. And on the great john side, you know, we started, we exclusively were serving what we call the retail customer, the mom and pop investor. And we had started to describe ourselves as institutional grade PM, institutional grade property management, which meant a whole host of things around the type of service that you deliver, and what you actually do as the property manager.   But it became clear that to really be institutional grade, you had to give the retail investor access to all the things that institutions have access to, which is really a full stack solution to investing. And so we I mean, I think Jay can correct me, but I think within a matter of months of the business existing had articulated that it's actually a platform vision that property management is this wedge into this much larger space. And it It took us quickly to realize that and then that's a drum that we beat throughout the duration of the business, and continue to hear and in talking to both Gary and Heath and Jonah, it feels like everybody had the same path. It was just a different what is the wedge, but the thesis is the same.   Heath: Yeah, 100% are our wedge, we always believe that financials were sort of the foundation of every real estate investors business. So by starting with the financials, we could become the system of record, we have all this data around the performance of their properties of their portfolio. And with that information, we can start providing you know, insights to help them maximize the value of the portfolio. You know, automate a lot of the you know, by automating the financials, we can save them a lot of time, help them make more money and doing so It would basically get us into a place where we could then long term become that platform. But of course, now that we have Roofstock and Great Jones, we've we've definitely accelerated that vision and are able to move a lot faster.   Jonah: Another thing that we hear from Stessa users is that by using Stessa, it gives them the confidence to expand their portfolio and obviously Roofstock and the Roofstock marketplace is there when our customers are ready to expand.   Gary: Yeah, I think bringing these companies together was a really natural thing. And we could talk about why I think it's working. It's still early, but it's working quite well, relative to I think a lot of business combinations. And I think what you're hearing is a lot of commonality of vision. And as Abigail, I think, probably like aptly, we put, we all just started from a different place, but we're kind of going in the same direction.   And so So for us, I think it just says accelerated kind of the growth and the amount of time it would take, rather than having to build all these things ourselves. By bringing them all together, we could just do it much more quickly. And and that's I think what we're seeing and then by getting the businesses together, then in addition to it's not just a one plus one plus one equals three, there are synergies, and we should each be able to grow our businesses faster and more efficiently. Because we're sharing data, we're sharing talent across the organization.   And there's a reason most mergers fail. And a lot of that is cultural. We have been very, you know, careful as we evaluate any of the transactions that we've done, it's got to be the right cultural fit. And this these clearly have been an honor. And I think one of the reasons that we've we actually ended up doing both of these deals was the people probably the primary reason they both had good tech and good businesses, but being able to attract all the the talent, the energy and the knowledge of the founding teams and their their core leaders around them really, really powerful. It's it's just hard to find that out in the market. So. So there's lots of reasons I think we're seeing early returns being very promising for this.   Abigail: I think that we all started a different entry points, and not randomly, but because those entry points were our strengths. So I see Stessa has like having firsthand financial issues with their portfolios, like really understanding that space very well, coming at it from like a real software sophistication, Jay and I and the team that we've built both come from really heavy hitter operators, you know, operationalizing messy businesses with technology. And then you had Roofstock with really deep real estate expertise, having done more at scale in the transaction space than probably any any other team combined. So it's not that we all just had the shared vision and happen to be coming at it differently, you have these really deep strengths that we're all playing to. And when those come together, I think that's part of the one plus one equals three that Gary's referring to.   Tom: Perfect segue into the next question, Abigail. So we've been talking about this kind of platform of the different layers of asset management, property management transactions, I'd love to hear the different founders talk about what is the special sauce within their layer of the transaction? Maybe technology, technology wise, you can explore the face the space of the question, but what would you say is some of the competitive advantages within that vertical of the company that you've started that has come together to form this this platform? I'd love to hear your guys's thoughts on, you know, what makes your segment that much better than other options out there.   Jay: On the Great Jones side, I think what we saw was, you know, a number of different areas of inspiration, I think, as Abigail mentioned, a lot of our sort of founding team. And I think at the core of what a lot of what we do is, you know, how do you take hard kind of online offline problems, maybe where there hasn't been a tremendous focus on sometimes efficiency or the Cust customer experience and build something better? That's sort of enabled by by technology and maybe enables, you know, higher growth and higher levels of quality?   So, you know, what does that mean, with respect to property management, I think the experience that investors have often had is that it can be run as a local service business. And as with many of those cases, there will be a really wide distribution where some people will be excellent, some some teams won't be. There's not a tremendous amount of consistency, facilitated facilitated by technology. It's heavily reliant on the people.   And I think what we found, you know, both them in prior experiences and that Great Jones is by I think the core, the core of what we're doing is thinking about What are the outcomes we want to deliver at the end of the day that creates, you know, a great customer experience and really solid returns? How do we think about instrumenting processes that haven't been instrumented previously? And what that allows? And how do we build great, you know, really nice interfaces for, you know, our own team members, owners, residents, vendors, anyone who needs to engage to create that great outcome.   And what we find that that then leads to, is a much more consistent and controllable level of performance, where we, where our team has much more transparency into how can we drive those returns? How can we drive that quality. And because we've instrumented things beyond captured, that data that maybe historically wasn't structured or captured, we can create much more visibility for an owner or a resident on the status of something.   And so an example would be, you know, doing a property turnover, where it sort of, if you if you know, from move out to kind of rent ready, that there are, there's a bunch that needs to happen in terms of doing a full inspection, considering the different paths to remediate or improve anything, coordinating the work of many different vendors, managing timelines, managing costs, you know, giving an owner the appropriate level of choice. And so we've built things like workflow tools for our own team, external interfaces, owner approvals flows, to really make that more of ultimately, almost like an e commerce and messaging experience for the owner. And that's what we think people have been accustomed to, you know, in other experiences, and enables the owner maybe to to Jonah's point to feel more comfortable growing their portfolio doing so across a number of markets, because they know, you know, the quality outcomes that can come with that.   And so, when we've done that being one example, but I think we consider a lot of the core of what we've done to think about, you know, how do we infuse maybe more consumer tech into a space that that hasn't necessarily had that to create a more, a higher performing, maybe more digital, more consistent experience?   Tom: That's awesome. transparency, control, all of that good stuff. I love it, Jay. Gary, do you want to want to speak next?   Gary: Sure. You know, one thing that I neglected to talk about at the beginning, and I know you wanted us to talk a little bit about our real estate investing experience. And I guess what, what it brought to mind that I was sort of thinking about this, which I think is sort of relevant to what we're all doing is, I started really, at very large scale on the institutional side buying 1000s and 1000s of homes during the last financial crisis, and really, kind of cut my teeth figuring out how to build institutional grade tools that would be used by institutions. And I think what we're doing here together now is taking a lot of those learnings that that I and my co founders, Gregor and Rich, kind of, were deeply embedded in institutional scale. And I don't want to say dumbing them down at all, because that's that it sounds derogatory. Simplifying them, and, and having a lot of that same power that we developed, you know, for institutions, and putting in the hands of, of retail investors. And, and, which is, by the way, where 98% of the home set.   So when we think about the addressable opportunity, as a platform catering to real estate investors, it just gets me so excited that we can take all those learnings and apply them now through these different business models at real scale to to retail investors, which as well as institutional investors. And I think one of the other I think, I guess, learnings or I would say, observations that might be counterintuitive, as people are out there thinking about building their own businesses, and how it might relate, you know, to what they're doing in their own lives.   But we took a little bit of a different path to building Roofstock, where oftentimes people will say, you got to pick the retail segment, or you got to pick the institutional segment, and then focus ruthlessly on that single customer, and don't try to boil the ocean. Well, we did try to boil the ocean in that we, we took a contrarian view and said, there's, you know, 90 million homes out there about, you know, 17 million of them or so are rentals. But that rental home doesn't know whether it's an institutional home or a retail home, it's a home. So we need to understand the whole market.   And by catering to both types of customers. We get data from all of them. And the market is the market. It could be an institutional buyer, retail buyer could be any of that. So So I guess I would just encourage people as they're thinking about that. Their own entrepreneurial journeys don't necessarily always listen to conventional wisdom. Because we didn't, we came at it differently, perhaps more ambitious than we then might have been wise coming out of the gate, but we felt like it was the right strategy has turned out to be, it's a work. And so you know, a lot of it comes down to execution. And being able to prioritize and ruthlessly prioritize when you're trying to do a lot of ambitious things, you have to figure out which is the most important which are the most important and focus on them.   And then also know when to pivot and when to stick to your strategy. That's just kind of another thing is for entrepreneurs out there. And that would be one of the things maybe that's interesting for everyone else on the call is that we've all had times where we've had to pivot our strategy. And that's one of the hardest things as an entrepreneur, you have to have conviction around what you're doing, until you decide you need to do something differently. And I'd be curious if there if any of you, my or my colleagues here had any, any observations around that, but that is something that as entrepreneurs and as real estate investors, you You are always trying to figure out well shoot, do I need to change my strategy here? Or do I need to stick to my stated goals?   Abigail: We had something similar where a great John's we I mean, almost identical, we were serving the retail customer exclusively. And we had the opportunity to serve an institutional customer, which was so different and clearly frightening because you have your your heart envision set around a certain customer experience but but took the leap and did it and we too ended up finding not just that it works, but that it it benefited both customer segments. So the the wisdom of have a single customer segment we too maybe walked away from, and both customer segments benefited in a way that I think, paid off the courage of that paid off. I had definitely received the advice early in my career, less about Greg Jones and more in previous contests to get great at murdering my darlings, which I believe is a literary phrase around being willing to like, you know, move away from a plotline, if it's, you know, not serving the momentum of the book or whatever piece that you're writing and definitely sticks with me. It's it sounds ruthless, but I think it ultimately pays off ends up being the bolder decision.   Gary: And you thought all that stuff that you learned when you were a writer was not going to be beneficial in your entrepreneurial career.   Abigail: Exactly. Here I am.   Heath: I'll add, you know, with Stessa we actually pivoted pretty early on. So the first customers that we targeted were really mid market investors. So people with, I don't know, 50 to 100 million in assets under management who we go after and provide full service bookkeeping to. And that's kind of how we got started offering and create financial solution. But we quickly learned that the really massive market, as Gary was saying, is really this, you know, retail investor out there. So shortly, I don't know, what was it Jonah, was like a year and a half after, after we started signing up customers paying customers, we basically made a big decision, hey, we're gonna go off to this much bigger market much harder to reach. You know, these are investors who are very hard to identify, often not willing to pay upfront. So with a free self service product, and we had to go back and fire all of our existing paid customers, which was, which was a very painful experience, but put us on really the right track to get to where we are today.   And when we went after those retail investors, one of the things that we learned that was really interesting is that, while technology and data is really you know, there's quite a bit out there, it's very pervasive out there today, many of these investors were just not using anything, we found that most of them, they actually had no clue if they were making or losing money on any of their investments. They kept most of their financial data in a out of date static spreadsheet, and the only time that they knew if they'd made or lost that money, or how their properties were performing was once a year when they got the returns from their accountant.   So that was a pretty big insight, we realized that when we built Stessa, and when we targeted these guys, we really needed to make this an incredibly intuitive, very much a consumer grade offering for these guys. So we built this self service to all, you know, purpose built for investors, built by investors, you know, really based on our own pain points that Jonah and I have had after being investors. For a number of years together.   And one of the one of the wonderful things about that is again, this was very, very painful decision to to make this change. But nowadays, our you know, our biggest, one of our biggest areas of customer acquisition is just investors referring other investors. And when you go into our net promoter score comments and see what people are writing, I actually did this. The other week, I took all the words created a word cloud, and the two biggest, most common words that people use when they describe it that our users use when they describe Stessa is easy and love.   Gary: Great, great question prompt Gary, Michael, go ahead. And yet, you know, feel free guys in move in the conversation in a certain direction you think they'll be more engaged in as we're as we're going through, but this is really great. So far, I love the inflection point question of these businesses, I think people are going to love it. Go ahead, Michael.   Michael: So you all individually have mentioned technology and how your companies have leveraged that. So I'm curious if you can give listeners at a high level, what technology you're giving them access to. So they can compete with some of the big players at the institutional level.   Gary: Fundamentally, when we think about what's different about Roofstock it's it's the data and technology that's foundational to what we're doing. So you're you're you've got really the same data and information analytics at your disposal that the major institutional investors have through our platform. And so the whole idea is to make it simple and intuitive, not not overly complex, to have a nice UI, but very powerful data around valuation underwriting how to evaluate investments on a risk adjusted basis with our neighborhood scores.   So the idea would be if you were an experienced investor, or even a novice investor, you can come and use our tools. And, and, you know, we provide, you know, I don't want to say it's training wheels, but but it kind of is your because it's all sort of teed up there with starting assumptions that you could then play with, you could look at other properties, you can, you can participate in the rootstock Academy and learn, you can join that community and share ideas and notes. So we try to provide this as a platform for investors to learn, we have plenty of people who engage with us who never buy anything, but they're just learning about investing and how to how to get on their own journey. And that's fine. It's, it's totally cool, we love it.   But eventually, we were there in case they, they want to do it. So I think in terms of if you if you're not in this in this, professionally, oftentimes just hard to understand how to value something, or how to think about the trade offs of buying a property in a four star neighborhood versus a two star neighborhood and you're playing with a lot of that stuff in. And that's what we're trying to do is continually make make the site in our, our business, intuitive, not overly complex, but have enough power that people can unlock, when they want to get in and do further and further research.   I know, when we were first raising money, we got some feedback from venture capitalists, it turned out to be very good advice. The first version of our site was way too complicated. We sort of nerded out on a bunch of different calculators and all these kinds of things that as kind of professional investors were like, oh, wouldn't it be cool if we could do this and that and that, and we did. And his feedback was, guys, this is a Frankenstein product, I get why everything is there. And it seems like it was kind of you just kept adding things because they were cool. And that's exactly what we did. We we did not, we didn't edit properly. And so that was a really good forcing function for us.   He said, If you could ever clean this up, you'll have a monster company, but it just, you know, it's gonna, everyone's gonna get lost in this. So we did and we, we simplified it greatly. And we took a lot of that functionality, we buried it a little bit deeper into the sites, you can unlock some of the sales analytics and things like that. But there's a real balance between having a powerful set of tools and a simple set of tools. And while people want choice, complexity can be it could tie you up in knots.   And so it's got to be this balance between, you know, editing and providing curated data and choices for people versus you know, maybe say that, like if you walked into a store and none of the products were organized into sections, it'd be so overwhelming, right? But if you if you could get guided to the right part of the store, and then you have three things to choose from, it's a heck of a lot easier. So that was I think another kind of interesting lesson as we were building just because you can do stuff doesn't mean you should In many cases, simpler is better.   Tom: Gary one thing I've been meaning to hear you articulate a response. This question is, for some investors, there's a perception that Roofstock is more for like an intro investor, they buy a house on roof stock, and then they bought it, the training wheels are off and they go buy somewhere else. What would you say to that comment of thinking of Roofstock as kind of like, exclusively as like, on the retail side, just for the training wheels, like the initial investor, and then you, you know, go somewhere else, I'd love to hear your your kind of thoughts on that stigma?   Gary: Sure. Well, I would say it depends on what you're trying to accomplish, right, we have some of the most sophisticated investors in the world buying homes off Roofstock. So it's not just for novice investors, it but we do have a unique positioning, and that there are very few on ramps for investors to to learn how to do it, and we provide that that guide. And if someone buys a home in a particular market, and they want to buy more homes, I think, you know, there's no obligation to do it through Roofstock, you certainly can can use those those skills that you have developed.   But it's it's certainly a heck of a lot easier. Because we've you've got all those tools already. And so there's no reason not to, it doesn't really cost you much to use our system. It's it's a, we charge a small marketplace fee to buyers, but you get all the data and analytics and all that to go there. So I would say if you want to buy remotely, it's very hard to do it on your own. So Roofstock has that infrastructure where we compare you with property management, financing, all the comps and analytics, that you certainly could go do it. But if you're looking at homes in four or five, six different markets on your own, it's very challenging, you have to travel, you have to find real estate brokers to work with.   And so, you know, I don't think, you know, I guess I really don't think about our platform is catering, certainly exclusively to first time investors, although a lot of people do start with us, I think on average, now we're just under two homes per investor. You know, people were using the site, I think a lot of people are trying to buy a home a year. For our platform, there's certainly no obligation to continue to use this. But I think for the most part, what we're seeing is people kind of continuing to use us and maybe using more and more of the tools over time, as they do get more sophisticated, maybe you do start to think about portfolio construction and think about where you want to own homes and set up little alerts, put yourself on a program to get build a diversified approach.   So I think it's it's a testament to the platform that we're building and the veracity of it, that it can be something that someone could start with, and then stay with throughout the lifecycle. And you can get as as geeked out is as you know, intense as you want about some of the tools and analytics, but you don't have to.   Gary: And plus all the other additional layers within stessa. Great Jones and Michael, do you want to just reiterate that question that Gary answered first related to technology we can have. Jay, Jonah and Heath take a stab at it as well.   Michael: Yeah, absolutely. So curious to know, because you all come from a technology background, what technologies and tools the individual investor has, Abigail, I think you said a nice that the mom and pop investor has at their disposal because of the companies that you all have founded?   Jonah: So I think he then I, you know came to this not because we were full time real estate investors, right? Real estate was sort of like our side side hustle while we were working in in the tech industry. And you know, that our day jobs in the tech industry, you have access to workflow automation, KPI, dashboards, like, you know, sophisticated modeling tools. And when we were working on our side hustle, owning a moderately sized real estate portfolio, we were doing spreadsheets and sending a lot of emails back and forth and had a stack of stack of paper documents on our desk. And so that was that was really the core problem that we were looking to solve is is give people that those sort of, you know, professional tools, but make it simple and make it purpose built for real estate.   Jay: Yeah, I think, you know, taking on a bit more of the operational side of property management but with a similar lens. A lot of our product strategy has been about, you know, how do we build the internal tool set and structured data that helps us create the outcomes in a scalable way. across, you know, an increasing number of markets, so enabling, you know, investors to work with us across a bunch of markets, that then leads to that transparency for the owner. And I think, you know, I talked a bit about how we've thought about turns in that context, I think that sort of measurement also allows us to then, you know, really lean in and maybe build some more custom tooling where we see there's going to be a benefit.   So for example, when we were very focused on once we had built a lot of the measurement of turn times, we saw there was an opportunity to get, you know, our staff out to homes to inspect them faster, that led to us building a set of sort of prioritization and routing tools, focused on that problem, that sort of prioritization of field work and, and completing that. And so I think part of where that thing goes, in addition to the outcomes for our investors, is a new layer of intelligence into that operational layer. So because we're measuring things like processes, or costs, maybe ROI around things like maintenance or turns or, you know, how did those decisions work out that we made around renewals or leasing, it's been our, you know, our goal, to think about how to structure those data sets, maybe into the owner, you know, web application, or, or help owners make their next decisions based on a sort of a layer of ownership that they haven't had that transparency into historically.   Michael: So I've got just one last question for everybody and very curious to see where it takes us. But I would love if you all can share a little pearls of wisdom or a nugget that you've picked up, because you are founders and co founders of tech companies that you find really applicable to real estate investors, what's the kind of an actionable takeaway or something that an investor can walk away from listening the episode today, from you all that have that have founded companies?   Abigail: I already shared, that you need to murder your darlings. So let that ne a minimum pearl.   Tom: We should we should name the episode.   Abigail: The website, you know, the original Roofstock website was so complex that he had to murder maybe just bury some darlings. So I think we saw that that the same lesson play out there, the the main piece of advice I have is to not overreact to things that are on fire. So just sort of set that your baseline is that all things will be on fire, there'll be multiple fires, and that you shouldn't over pivot or over course, correct, based on anyone, you know, imminent moment of pain, which I think takes a degree of articulation and commitment to where you're going and what the longer term path is. Less that be taken too literally, for real estate investor, I don't mean to use fire, like if something's on fire. Surely, that's not the lesson to be learned there.   Michael: I was just gonna say, do you know about the two fires that I've had in my building, I don't, I don't, where were you two years ago to calm me down.   Abigail: But whatever, whatever the appropriate corollary is, you know, to be confident in whatever strategy you set and be committed to it and not over pivot based on, you know, near term troubles.   Jonah: I would second that, that in real estate, it can be tempting to try to optimize one particular transaction or renovation at the expense of like the long term. You know, thinking about your, your network, your you know, the your business relationship, so the team that you're using to build your real estate portfolio up. And, you know, obviously, you know, building a startup is similar, you can't get, you know, there's the day to day aspect of it. But you also have to make sure you're always building for the long term.   Heath: Everything takes so much longer than you ever expected.   Gary: I would agree with that. I agree with all those those pearls of wisdom. I think having the right long term orientation, making decisions that are right for the long term, very critical, whether you're an entrepreneur starting a company or you're a real estate investor, you know, how much do you want to invest in your renovation, it's going to cost you more, but then it's going to cost you less on an ongoing basis that when you're starting a company, how much do you want to invest upfront in your core technology and in your team, you could do things more on the cheap, but it might not be as enduring. So I would think about investing, you know, in capital and people that are really, really critical.   And then I would say, just on the entrepreneurial side, what has worked for me is real optimism is I think there's different ways and but it's you're intellectually honest, but you're optimistic and you're in solution oriented. You can fall into despair very easily as an entrepreneur or if you have a real estate investment that's going sideways, but if you really sort of say okay, we are where we are, you know, what are our options, how do we fix it and I know we're going to get through this. It You find very few entrepreneurs who won't don't have a glass half full kind of orientation.   A good friend of mine found in Workday. His name's Aneel Bhusri. And he also founded, you know, another company with Dave Duffield earlier in his career. And so Dave co founded Workday with him as well. And, Aneel said one time, he said, Yeah, you know, I'm, I'm, uh, you know, I'm a glass half full kind of kind of person. And I'm a good complement to today, my co founder, you know, by contrast, he's a glasses, entirely full type person. So, you know, it's not as a glass half empty glass half full. And Aneel thought he was, yeah, I'm pretty optimistic. Dave was like, oh, off the charts, this is going to work. And this is how it's worked. He's created multiple billion dollar, you know, multi billion dollar companies. But so I would say attitude is important, and perseverance.   And I think by keeping that positive attitude, not everything is going to go right, you need to try lots of stuff, and celebrate failures, keep going. So we like to say at Roofstock, you know, fail forward fast, try new things, celebrate those things. And it's not easy to celebrate failure. It sounds kind of silly, and it's kind of a West Coast thing. But we do try to do it and you know, talk about things that don't work. And eventually, you're going to find some magic in there. And if people aren't comfortable failing, they don't take those chances. So I think, you know, those are a few things that I would just I would share.   Heath: You know, and I'm gonna add one more, which is luck surface area. And as you're talking about optimism, it kind of reminded me of this. So at my wedding, Jonah actually gave the best man speech. And he spoke a bit about luck surface area and how it applies. And I would say, both in real estate, and in starting a startup, you know, you really got to just put yourself out there, make it known where you want to be, you know, go and scream from the rooftops, hey, this is what I want to accomplish. This is what I want to do make sure everyone is you know, knowing what you're trying to do. And hopefully the right people will kind of step up and, and help you get to that end goal.   Gary: I love that luck surface area. You know, if you think it was Ben Hogan, who also said, the more I practice, the luckier I get. So there's no substitute for that hard work element, as well.   Tom: Jay, do you want to close this out? I haven't heard your pearl yet. Do you want to get to the final pearl?   Jay: Sure. I mean, I think I think it goes back to something Gary said about investing in the team where I think the quality of the team. And I think relationships among the team are just such a huge lever in it, whether it's startups or really trying to be successful at anything. And so I think, being patient around building the right team, having a high high bar for the right team, and sort of, you know, who's your network that you rely on, as you build a portfolio as you build a company, I think has, you know, led to some of our greatest successes and, and some of our missteps occasionally. And so I think, as has always been, you know, something, something I've tried to keep in mind.   Gary: And I would say, you know, one thing that I've also learned over time, and I firmly believe is, is the right strategy, whether you're building a company or a real estate portfolio, even though buying property is transactional, there is a way to live your life and build your career in a way that's more relationship oriented. And I think some of the most successful entrepreneurs, whether it's in tech or real estate, take the long view, and don't view everything as transactional. And while you want to get a good deal on a property, you might be dealing with a serial seller, you deal with that person well, you're going to develop in the long run, you're going to do much better by trying to find Win Win outcomes.   And so that I would put that out there because I think oftentimes in real estate, people view things very much as a one shot deal. very transactional, trying to maximize everything. And I think if you sort of take a step back a little bit, sometimes and optimize for the long run, take more relationship view can be smart.   Tom: We love to hear your feedback. So if you have any questions you want to ask some of these co founders about real estate entrepreneurship. Please, if you're watching this on YouTube, just write it into the comments. We watch that stuff all the time. And if you're listening to this on a podcast, if you could write this in the either Apple podcast comments, or you can just email us you can email us at help at roof stock.com with questions, comments, anything you Want related to this content that we're creating and as always, happy investing

I'm excited to invite you to my conversation with V Smiley, a former chef and the passionate driving force behind V Smiley Preserves - a honey-based jams, savory preserves and marmalades business based in New Haven, Vermont. V was born on a farm in rural Vermont, a child of Back-to-the-Landers. Some of V's fondest childhood memories are sitting around the table enjoying delicious meals grown on their farm. In their early twenties V came out as queer and it was not well received, especially by V's father. Feeling unwelcome to return home, V moved to the West Coast and started working in restaurants. The pace and culture of the restaurant industry was intense so when V had an opportunity to make preserves for a seasonal fine dining restaurant - which had a different skill set, pace and hours, V jumped at the chance. Thus began V's mastery and passion for preserves. V Smiley Preserves was built in Seattle as a side hustle with the full intent to eventually move that business back to V's childhood home and farm in Vermont. V's story hopefully will speak to anyone out there dreaming of returning to their rural roots but can't figure out how to find employment or build a business. V transitioning from employee to employer has required analysis of the system and culture of the food industry to see where improvements and changes can and should be made. It is I am so inspired by V and Amy's vision for the future and their tireless work they've put into creating a rural destination in New Haven. It is extremely difficult to build something from scratch and trying to find funding when you are one of the first businesses trying out a unique business model in a rural location. I hope V is able to make the mini-factory a reality. I encourage anyone listening who is a jam or preserves lover to treat yourself to V's incredible line-up of products. This is a story of homecoming, careful and intentional planning, legacy, perseverance and preserves. I hope you enjoy it. To find links to V's 2018 UE feature, interview questions, photos and more - visit the Urban Exodus Blog.

“Starting Now” The Santa Barbara bred Toad The Wet Sprocket got their start in the late ‘80s when high school pals Glenn Phillips, Dean Dinning Randy Guss and Todd Nichols decided it was time to form a band. Cut to 1989 and the band's demo Bread and Circus which came out on their own Abe's Records label, was re-released by Columbia Records. From there, Toad pretty much owned the '90s, putting out albums like Pale, Fear, Dulcinea and Coil. They had massive hits with All I Want, Walk On The Ocean, Something's Always Wrong and the Number One Modern Rock chart topper Fall Down. But as the story goes, owning the '90s was exhausting and citing creative differences, the band took a break from being a band for a long time. They played sporadic shows here and there, but for the most part, Toad The Wet Sprocket were kind of on ice. The band members went on to do different projects, Phillips had a busy solo carer and that was that. That ice melted in 2009 and the band reactivated themselves from hiatus, putting out their first new album since 1997. New Constellation was a blast of West Coast pop that reestablished Toad as a force to be reckoned with. Eight years later, we have Starting Now, the band's 7th full length effort. A stirring platter that's melodic, joyful and undeniably catchy, Starting Now is as rousing as it is hopeful. The band is down an original member—drummer Randy Guss left in 2020, but Josh Daubin is behind the kit now and he's crushing it. In this conversation Phillips talks to Alex about his relationship to alcohol, vaccines and learning to not be so hard on himself….. www.toadthewetsprocket.com www.bombshellradio.com www.alexgreenonline.com STEREO EMBERS THE PODCAST Twitter: @emberseditor Instagram: @emberspodcast EMAIL: editor@stereoembersmagazine.com

From a deadly niche-technique, to a West Coast phenomenon, “Twitching” has added a new tool in many coho (silver) salmon anglers arsenals. This technique has been covered in STS before, and there are many excellent resources to learn more about the basic twitching technique. Basic Twitching Here is a quick breakdown of basic twitching. Cast into your target water Do not allow your jig to hit bottom, instead twitch at least 12 inches from bottom and up. Lift the rod tip quickly and drop it immediately. Your line should fall slack for a natural drop. Do not slowly drop your rod tip. Reel after the drop and twitch again. If you're in danger of touching bottom (for instance, when casting upstream) reel in more line. If you're upstream of your jig, you may not need to reel much at all. Just make sure you don't let it snag on bottom. Cover water quickly and try to cover the hole from a few different angles. This could be expounded upon dramatically, but let's move past the standard twitching technique to look at some other ways to fish twitching jigs. Why change it up? When I started twitching I rarely saw other anglers using the technique (I was the first!!! Just kidding…), but now almost every angler I run into has a rod tied up for twitching. By utilizing some other styles, you can give the fish something different to look at.

Frank Herbert's Dune has been hailed as a pioneer of environmental science fiction, where the Fremen on the planet of Arakkis, have had to adapt to extreme weather conditions through technology and culture. I talk with Ian Schoenherr, the son of illustrator John Schoenherr, about how his father and Frank Herbert bonded over their love of nature. Although Veronika Kratz explains that Frank Herbert would be out of step with today's environmental movement. We'll also hear from two entrepreneurs in water conservation that were inspired by Dune, Peter Yolles from the company WaterSmart and Daniel Fernandez of California State University Monterey Bay, whose fog catchers are similar to the type of technology the Fremen would use, if they lived on the West Coast.
