We all know starting a new business is not easy. It comes with a long list of challenges that can be difficult for just one person to navigate. So what happens when you're one half of an entrepreneurial partnership? Does it become easier or more difficult to navigate these obstacles? Or guests today, Jan Seale and Coabi Kastan, are the co-founders of Out of Office - an app that facilitates travel by offering personalized inspiration, tips, and recommendations directly from your own inner circle of family and friends.  In this episode, Jan and Coabi walk us through how they went about building their business, the lessons they've learnt along the way, and the ways in which they've successfully managed their partnership. They also break down how the Out of Office app works and why they believe it's the future of travel.    “We were oftentimes the only women in the room at the leadership table, or I was oftentimes the only black woman at that table. And so I wanted to make sure that as we grew at this organization that we provided opportunities for people that didn't necessarily always get to have seats at the tables.” - Jan Seale If you're looking to take your business to the next level, join the Entreprenista League today at entreprenista.com/join.

This week's takeaways from Entreprenista: The vision for Out of Office and what it facilitates (10:17)How Jan and Coabi manage their business partnership (16:11)How Coabi and Jan were able to source workers without initially being able to pay their salaries (26:12)How Coabi and Jan chose their investors (36:46)Jan and Coabi's team-building strategy (38:11)How Coabi and Jan have incorporated the world of influencing into their business (44:34)Jan and Coabi's business monetization strategy (47:01) Resources Mentioned: Out of Office app Our Favorite Quotes: “We talk a lot about places like Yelp, or TripAdvisor, and those things can be helpful, but they're so impersonal. And there's no way for you to calibrate your tastes on those kinds of sites. And so, we solved that with Out of Office.” - Jan Seale“It is so important to know which areas of the business, which functions, each of you will own if you're in a partnership.” - Coabi Kastan“For the most part, we stayed really focused on owning whose lanes are what, and so it makes our life so much easier. Even to this day, when we're in meetings or with our investors, we still use that same cadence, and that's ‘who owns what?'” - Jan Seale“Being an entreprenista is taking a risk not being afraid to fail, and then doing something you love, and that you're passionate about, and putting your heart and soul behind it.” - Coabi Kastan Connect with Jan Seale and Coabi Kastan: Out of Office on LinkedInOut of Office websiteOut of Office on InstagramOut of Office on TikTokOut of Office on FacebookJan Seale on LinkedInCoabi Kastan on LinkedIn If you're looking to take your business to the next level: Join our Entreprenista League community of women founders!

The two talk about the interesting career path that brought Toni to where she is today, the gratitude she has found in being able to help people in crisis, and how what she's doing in real estate today will change the game for the whole industry. In this episode, we discuss: How Toni's professional career started with Dick Clark Productions and Motown What transitioned her from the entertainment industry into real estate, and who helped to motivate this move What challenges she faced in the beginning, and along the way How the stock market crash of 2008 helped her to understand how much she could help people in crisis The interesting work Toni is doing in her industry now, and the difference it makes in the life of real estate agents What shifted in 2020, and how it is changing the game for the real estate industry Toni Patillo has spent the last two decades establishing herself as one of Los Angeles's premier experts in real estate, business, and mindset. Whether through her work as Principal and Broker for Toni Patillo & Associates https://www.tonipatillo.com or a host of the beloved Call Toni Real Estate Radio program, she has made a career of empowering people to improve their lives and their communities. With the launch of ‘Empowered Mindset,' she inspires her clients to tap into their genius and design lives and businesses that function in a flow state. As the daughter of two prominent civil rights activists, Toni grew up with a deep appreciation for the impact a passionate individual can make on society. The principles of charity, self-love, and progress would later come to define her career. After earning her degree in Business Administration from the University of Washington, she took her first corporate job. Still, it was not until she returned to her birthplace of Los Angeles that she started to realize her true capabilities. Toni's natural business acumen and ambitious nature made her a perfect fit for the entertainment industry. She took her first prominent position as Investment Manager for Dick Clark Productions, where she played a crucial role in making the company public. She went on to take the title of Senior Vice President with the legendary Motown Productions and de Passe Entertainment, where she continued her prolific career. After twenty years in entertainment, Toni began exploring new opportunities in the business world. Expanding the International presence of the South African holistic health and wellness franchise, Madame et. Monsieur proved to be a pivotal moment for her. She mastered her innate ability to affect people's lives directly. Though she would eventually sell the business, that spirit of generosity continued to motivate her as she began her career in real estate. Beginning with Prudential John Aaroe Realty in Beverly Hills, a luxury boutique brokerage and transitioning to Keller Williams Realty Santa Monica/Pacific Palisades/Malibu, for 13 years serving as the Broker of Record, she has guided and mentored thousands of realtors, home sellers, and buyers through life-changing real estate decisions, winning several industry awards in the process. She has since taken her successful Real Estate Brokerage Brand on to partner with the publicly traded eXp Realty, World Holdings, Inc, the Global Cloud-Based Brokerage, a disrupter in the industry that will allow her to stay at the cutting edge forefront of the real estate world for years to come. Toni is a contributing writer for In2ition Magazine https://www.in2itionmagazine.com a women's entrepreneurial publication. Currently, Toni is focused on Empowered Mindset, https://www.empoweredmindset.com where she employs the wisdom she has accumulated in her exceptional career to have a genuine impact on her clients. With teachings backed by decades of experience and ancient wisdom, there is no one more qualified to coach, lead, inspire, and guide entrepreneurs.

Remember, only about 6% of social media posts are seen by your audience. Combine an old caption with a new photo or video and just like that you have an upcycled post! NEIGHBORHOOD SPOTLIGHTSpotlighting different businesses and hotspots in your neighborhood gives you ENDLESS possibilities for posts. Ideas: Your favorite place to get coffee. Your favorite bakery. You could do your favorite lunch spot… think sushi, Mexican, Indian, etc. Your favorite park, grocery store and so much more! You can also share a post from a business in your neighborhood. Let's say that you follow that bakery and they posted something really neat. Now you can share that post in your stories, make sure you tag them, do an @mention and whatever their handle is and write a fun post. Example: “Go visit our friends at _____________! They're only two minutes away and we love their chocolate croissants. Thank us later!” This is a very simple way to get “FREE” content that really helps promote your neighborhood and gets cross-promotion going with other local businesses! HIGHLIGHT A RESIDENT TESTIMONIALResident testimonials are SO powerful. Take a screenshot of a Google review or a Yelp review or create a graphic in Canva with a few nice words a resident sent via email. You can do this anonymously or include their name with the resident's consent. Bonus: Ask a friendly resident if they'd be willing to do a video testimonial. You know which resident to ask…the one that loves to chat and isn't scared of the camera. SHARE AN FAQ - YOU KNOW YOU GET A TON OF THESE FROM PROSPECTS Write down the questions that people ask you throughout the week. Then do a regular feature sharing your most frequently asked FAQ's. Example: “Hey, it's Friday, and we're sharing a frequently asked question! You can do it with a video (Instagram stories, reel, TikTok, FB Live). I like the face-to-face interaction, but if you're not comfortable just do text in an Instagram story. Super, super simple. TAG-A-FRIEND REFERRAL POSTYou can encourage referrals with a tag-a-friend post. Ideas: Tag a Friend That…You'd love to have nearby as a walking partner! You wish was your neighbor so that happy hour could be an hour! Would love this view.

Chinese Whispers: Mythbusting the social credit system

China's social credit system is notorious. This Black Mirror-esque network supposedly gives citizens a score, based on an opaque algorithm that feeds on data from each person's digital and physical lives. With one billion Chinese accessing the Internet and the growing prevalence of facial recognition, it means that their every move can be monitored – from whether they cross the road dangerously, to whether they play too many video games and buy too much junk food. Those with low scores have lower socio-economic status, and may not be able to board planes and trains, or send their children to school. It's all part of a Chinese Communist Party directive to further control and mould its citizens. Except it's not. Speak to any Chinese person and you'll quickly realise that their lives are not dictated by some score, with their every move monitored and live-feeding to some kind of governmental evaluation of their social worth. In fact, the western narrative of the social credit system has deviated so far from the situation on the ground that Chinese Internet users went viral mocking western reporting on Weibo: '-278 points: Immediate execution'. Telling Cindy Yu this story on this episode of Chinese Whispers is Vincent Brussee, a researcher at the Mercator Institute for China Studies (Merics), who has recently released a detailed paper looking at what the social credit system really entails on the ground (Merics was part of the group of European organisations and individuals sanctioned by Beijing last year). The reality of social credit is unfortunately much less exciting and sexy than you might fear. For one, the technology simply isn't there.  ' When the social credit system was envisioned, or when it was designed in the early 2000s, government files in China were still held in dusty drawers… In 2019 when I worked in China I still had to use a fax machine. That was the first time in my life that I ever saw a fax machine', Vincent says. The system is not linked with someone's digital data, but fundamentally only their interactions with the government (for example, permits and licences). Data that e-commerce and social media companies collect on their users, which must be extensive, are not connected with the government's own data (probably because of the CCP's growing suspicion of Chinese tech firms). But more fundamentally, the social credit system is not just one system. 'It's more of an umbrella term', Jeremy Daum says. He is the senior research fellow at Yale Law School's Paul Tsai China Center, who also runs the blog China Law Translate (which does what it says on the tin). Jeremy has spent years myth-busting the social credit system. He says that for some institutions, social credit is a financial record ('credit' as in 'credit card'); for others, it is a way of black-marking unscrupulous companies that in the past fell short of, say, food safety standards (a particularly sensitive topic in China, given the milk powder scandal). In fact, social credit often functionally works as a way of determining how trustworthy a company is, like a government-run Yelp or Trustpilot system (the Merics report found that most targets of are companies rather than individuals). So how did reporters get the social credit story so wrong? In reality, though the social credit system itself is fairly boring, the way this narrative exploded and took hold is a cautionary tale for the West in our understanding of China. 'The western coverage of social credit has hardly been coverage of social credit at all. It is coverage of us, seen through a mirror of China', says Jeremy, arguing that it tapped into our deep fear of unbridled technology and surveillance. On the episode Cindy also speaks to Louise Matsakis, a freelance journalist covering tech and China, who was one of the first to point out the disparity in the social credit narrative and the reality on the ground. Together, they unpack what lessons there are for studying, understanding and reporting on China from this whole saga.  For further reading, here are the sources we mention in the episode: - The Chinese Whispers episode with Jeremy Daum on the fightback against facial recognition:  https://www.spectator.co.uk/po... - The Merics report:  https://merics.org/en/report/c... - China Law Translate's Social Credit section:  https://www.chinalawtranslate.... - Louise Matsakis in WIRED, ' How the West Got China's Social Credit System Wrong':  https://www.wired.com/story/ch...

This podcast is all about building a strong personal brand people have come to know, like trust, and most importantly, refer. But remember, it is not their job to remember what you do for a living. It's your job to remind them. Let's get started. What's up ladies and gentlemen, welcome another episode of real estate marketing, dude, podcasts, what we're chatting about today is going to be something that I've been hearing quite a little bit of buzz about. But I'll be honest with you, I have no idea how it works. So anytime that happens, we bring on guests that are experts in different areas of different aspects of real estate marketing, and then we have them, school us on what we need to know about it. And what we're chatting about today is going to be Google My Business. And you guys have probably heard this, and I've been hearing nothing but success stories of people all over the place that are using Google My Business and getting listings, getting buyers getting clients. And it makes a lot of sense. The problem is I don't really know how it works. Exactly. So we're bringing on a returning guest who's been on here if you guys followed a show, we talked about how to generate dominate your sphere of influence through Facebook groups and stay in touch of them. That was Mr. Will Penny and will Penny is back with another piece of content that he's having a lot of success on. So my kids get it on the show was become a good friend. And he knows his stuff. And he's just sort of tells it how it is. He's blunt. He tells it and doesn't BS people. So I appreciate that and appreciate you coming back on the show. We'll How you doing buddy?I'm glad to be back man. I always appreciate listen to your podcast. And you're right, we have become good friends. I like the relationship we have. So I started listening to your podcast because you all you talk about is relationship marketing, through video and other you know, other tools and our business is about 70% referrals. My little team of five we do about 200 deals a year. We're just south of Cleveland, Ohio. I've been a realtor since 1988 34 years ago when I was 1953. Now so dinosaur on oldest shit. I look about my hair. But anyway, that my 35th year in the business and we just cut Zillow out completely I paid them $40 a month now for a crap zip code just so I can keep my premiere agent profile. Because we got 557 reviews on Zillow on Zillow. About two years ago, I predicted that Zillow would eventually shut down their find an agent page. And the reason is, is that they're going to the FLEX program throughout the country where they're charging referral fees, especially now that they got out of the eye buyer world because that was a complete debacle. Richard Barton missed the mark there. So anyway, I think that's his name, isn't it Rich Barton,some, the guy who started the Travelocity,whatever. So anyway, I figured that they would end up shutting down the Find an agent page, because you can't get you can't ensure that you're gonna get referral fees. If you allow a if you allow consumers to search for agents, it kind of makes sense. They haven't done it yet, but they're gonna. So I had all my Zillow reviews, because we've been all in for reviews for a long time. I've done a bunch of interviews on how to get 500 reviews on Zillow, but I don't have anybody review me on Zillow now. So two years ago, I started looking into Google, you can have a Google profile for free. It's starting to get saturated. So the key is that you need to have a lot of reviews, you need to respond to the reviews. So I just started having my clients review me on Google, then, about a year and a half ago, I, I was made aware of their GLS program, Google Local Services. And basically it's a Google Pay paid ad. So they promote you, you have to get background check. They do. You know they check to make sure you got insurance to check to make sure you've got no weird history. And then they give you a nice little green checkmark saying Google verified and then you have to pay a budget. You can pick the budget, but then they promote you. If someone puts in top real estate agents or top Realtors near me, you show up, you show up. Sothis is Google My Business.It's just Yeah, I mean, I don't know. Google Local Services is a sponsored ad program. They actually have a program called GLS Google Local Services. And you can Google that. And anyway, you can get you can you you can set up your own profile, but then they set up another one for you for the GLS program because that's all paid it's not ordered.So Well, let me unwind this a little bit. You got pissed off at Zillow two years ago, because you saw what was coming down the pipe there. You're going to flex programming and you had a lot of your social proof on Zillow 500 Plus Reviews. So two years ago, you just started figuring out I gotta find somewhere else for my reviews because Zillow is gonna backdoor me. And then you sort of just ended up getting more listings doing this, right.Yeah, because where many listings you generate amonth off your Google My Business? And I want to go from the end of the back?Oh, at least one. Great. And that's you pay for that?Is there any ad costs involved? Yeah.So my, my spend is 1200 a month. So you figure my average commission check even in Ohio is about 6700. And the cool thing is because it's social proof, by the time they call you, they've they've checked you out, I mean, you're you're attracting the type of consumer that values trust, and they value. They value a referral from hundreds of people versus aunt Matilda.So how do you? How many reviews do you have up right now? And Google?I think 212 212.And that's after the last two years of doing it, right?Yeah, but we, we've made getting reviews part of our process since 2010, when I joined Zillow. So we had a warning to everyone, my little public service announcement, my RSA realtor service announcement, do not ask for reviews, unless you get your process under control. Because if you're not answering your phone, or you only text or you like to just respond to emails, or if you, if you, if you delay, like how long it takes for someone to be able to get a hold of you, because you're spending six hours a day watching Instagram reels and you can't get anything else done, then don't ask for reviews because the truth will come out, and you won't like that. So we found that asking for reviews for us is the same as having a body cam as a police officer, you you tend to you tend to pay attention to what you're doing. Because everyone's watching. And when you ask for reviews, they're gonna tell you No, they'll either not give you one because they don't want to be confrontational, or they're gonna give you a really good one because they love you. So the key is to provide excellent service set expectations, communicate, be accessible. It's not that hard. And then, you know, getting reviews on Google is probably in my opinion, the best place to be right now.I get so how many reviews and but you're paying $1,200 a month to get promoted. So when people search tourister that's the local business thing. So they're they're pumping you out in the front, right?Yeah. So what happens is you get you get impressions. So you, you bid for it. It's all auction based, just like Zillow. And I say, and basically you can trust Google. I mean, maybe I'm naively trusting them. But you know, they, they want you to get you the most value for your money. That's how they've remained where they are. So I just have it set up so that they get to choose how much I want to bid so that they give me the best possible value. I'm trusting. I mean, it's a little wizard of oz easy for me, because I don't know what it's all tied to. But I don't know what's behind the curtain. But so far, you know, most of the weeks I don't hit my budget.Yeah. So I got to, let's get into how to ask and how to get testimonials. Because this is always a problem with people. I still have it, I don't think I have it. I know it's in my home office. I still have. I have a binder, it's a paper binder, and it was like this thick. So if you guys can't see this, it's about three inches, I'm making a three inch space between my fingers. I used to get all my I used to get I used to get all my testimonies on paper, and I used to ask them and then write them down. And then I would put the listing sheet next to it. And I would have this like binder ended up being like 15 pounds. And I would go to my listing presentations and I just dropped the binder on it costs $15 to create because there's that many papers. And I put the binder on the listing table or on the table and be like alright, so here's a bunch of my client reviews and all that. And some people would have me leave it but most people would never didn't want to take like a 15 pound book of testimonials. But I'd have their phone number, their pictures and the listing sheet of the property they purchased. And I had to do that early on because I was young. And I was like 27 and my prime and real estate 2829 30. But even then people still are like, Hey, you got to still prove yourself like you got to do what other people say about you is more powerful than what you'll ever say about yourself. And that's why your reviews page is the number one visited page on your site. It is on mine. And there's a reason why every website has a reviews page. It's because of what other people say about you and regardless of what people are thinking about when they're making a decision on on a purchasing decision. One of the thoughts that goes past their mind is like, well, what's everyone else saying about him? And that's what reviews are for. So like, you have to get reviews nowadays. The problem is, is that people get so excited about getting a commission that they forget to insert this into their process. And they don't get the review. Because if you wait too long, are you ever gonna get the review? Will you get the testimonial three weeks after closing?No, no, I text them the day they get the keys. But here's another major problem. And it goes back to what you do for a living. You know, retargeting if you don't even have the energy or the motivation or drive to ask your client to do you a solid and give you a review, yet probably don't have a system in place to stay in touch with them. You don't I mean, it's all tied together. Because the average we are paying no lead generation costs right now. Last summer when I was on talking about my Facebook group. And that business that I have, we we were still spending 1800 bucks a month on Zillow. Well, I can them two months ago, because they were they have flex in our area. They were taking my $1,800 they guaranteed me 2.6 leads a month.What's What's that? Like? For 1800? bucks?Yeah, what's that? 607 100 bucks a lead? I mean, I would walk a whole neighborhood for you for 1600 bucks for two hours and get you two leads. You don't I mean, it's like, it makes no sense. You, the value is just horrible. So I just cut them out. But the reason I was able to cut them out, is because over 70% of our business is referrals from past clients, you know, then we have client events. We do some mailings. You know, that kind of stuff. I'm I'm starting to do more. I'm starting to do more videos. By the way, there's a guy locally, Joe Tato, who is a client of yours, that kid is crushing it on YouTube, thanks to you. He I think that he's, he's, I think he puts he attributes you to his success more, more so than I think anybody so I just want to throw that out to you. Yeah, he's right in my market.Yeah, good. Good. You guys hear that? Like people get to know who you are when you work with us. It's pretty nice.Anyway, the reviews were I used to have that same book. I mean, the thing that people agents don't understand now they go around griping about how hard this business is. They forget that. And I know you're a lot younger than me, I'm 53. But, you know, when I started for the first 10 years of my career, we had no internet. I mean, I got realtor.com in 1997. So that was nine years after I'd been licensed. So we would have to present offers face to face. Well, you know, when I was 25, and I don't say this to brag, I'm just trying to set some perspective on how easy it is. Now, we didn't have a Google back then I had the exact same binder as you did, I had the mylar folders. And I would get someone to write me a letter or a card. And I'd stick the car, you know, the greeting card or the letter in there, I go pick it up from them, and say, Can I stop by four o'clock on Tuesday and grab a reference letter from you. If you don't have a chance to do it, I'll wait while you do it. And I go pick it up, stick it in there. And I bring that over. That's your credit report. That is the that's the currency of your business is what other people think about you we didn't have there was no social proof, you would have to just get letters, or greeting cards talking about how amazing you are, and you had to get a ton of them. Now, you know, with all of the platforms, you can get reviews, I've just found that for real estate reviews, people aren't going to Yelp because they think about food. Although Yelp is trying to promote themselves as a general platform, it's still food. There was a time where I was on Angie's List, and I had 34 reviews or something like that. And I was getting two listings a month for a while. But that kind of burned out. Google seems to be the place to go to get reviews, but you need to back up and make sure that you're providing the kind of service that is going to make them want anyone other than a family member want to give you five star review. You got to you got to step all the way back and fix your business. Yep. And it doesn't take that much, you know. So you just have to answer your phone be available. Everyone says, oh, it's I can't answer my phone. I don't know who it is. Well, you know, for years we used to do that. The only reason you can't do that now is because if you look at the screen time on your phone, and I'm just as guilty. The reason we become inefficient is because we spend so much time watching crap online.Yep, everyone's on their phone nowadays. Walk me through your guyses process and how you're, you're getting these like at what point in the transaction so that people can start making it part of their systems like you this is a checklist item guys so like when you're at the final walk through, maybe you inserted at that time or at the closing, maybe you get your testimony deadtime. But I used to always have a certain time that I would ask for the testimony or get it so that it became habit. And if you don't get into the habit, you stop asking for it. And if you don't ask for it upfront, you're not going to get it later.If it's a buyer, when you give them the keys, say, by the way, would you do me? Can I get weird with you for a second? What? Hey, remember, before I mentioned that, I'm going to ask you for a view, at the initial consultation, I tell my buyers and sellers by the way, if you ever decide to hate me, then the quickest way to ruin my life and make me lose three nights sleep is give me a bad review.That's a great way to put it. So I said that say that one more time at like, cons that's just like a close to that's a really close. Yeah, walk me through thebeginning of the relationship on the listing appointment, I talked to them about how relationships are important. And I say, if you think I'm full of crap, Google me. And you'll see that everything we do revolves around reviews, and our review of our reviews are the byproducts of excellent relationships. So if you if I, if I dropped the ball, I'm telling you right now, the way you get me back, is by giving me a bad review. If you really want to ruin my day or my week, give me a one star review. You know, just go do that. And I can't do anything about it to remove it. So that's what keeps me on my toes for 34 years. That's why we do over a million dollars in GCI with a tiny little team. You know, that's how we have a, we have a recession proof business. Because we've created energy around our tiny little shitty brand in Northeast Ohio. And, you know, at least 150 to 200 people a year find us. So I tell them about I tell them at the beginning of the relationship, the way you're going to reward me is I'm going to ask you for a review at the end. So think about the service that we're providing. I'm confident that we're going to do a good job. But if at any point during the process, you feel like I'm not responsive, or you know, you I've ghosted you, whatever, it won't be on purpose, I just asked you to please tell me because I will correct it, we are completely focused on you having a good experience. And I don't want to guess what a good experience is for you. So I tell them about it at the beginning. And then at the end, I say, hey, remember I said I was gonna ask you for a review. Do you mind if we jump on Google right now and you just give me a quick review. And then if I've got a seller who's closing, then I just text I call them don't ever just text them. People want to feel important. Right? If you call them up, and I say, Hey, Mike, just want to let you know, the deed just recorded. And you say, Oh, that's great. Well, thanks, dude. I really hope that you had a good experience with me. We really tried hard. I hope you feel like I proved myself to you. Oh, yeah, you did. Awesome. Well, hey, do you I hate to be weird, but do you mind? I said, I know, I'm an older guy. But reviews are important. Do you mind if I text you a link and you give me your five star review on Google? They're like, No, go ahead. I'm like, Cool. And then I go into my my notes, my notes on my phone, and I just copy and paste that into a text. And I'll read you, I'll read you my read you what it is. Hang on, this will take just one second or youpull that up. And then like, if you guys are getting to get a video testimony, then you have to do it when you're in person. Because very same thing is like, Oh, if you get a video testimonial, do it at the closing table or at the final walkthrough. It's when they're all pumped and all jazz and it takes three seconds. He's already given the keys. Yeah,yeah, I get. I get a 32nd 45 second video and we use that for retargeting. So here's I've got two texts that I saved in my notes. The first one says, Would you mind this is after a phone call. So you have to set them up at the beginning of the relationship and let them and give them the power that they can that they get to grade you. It really makes a huge difference. Yes. Then at the end, you say you call them and ask them for don't cheat and just send them a text. If you're just texting clients to say, hey, we just closed if you're using that as your main form of communication. I'm here to tell you, you're wrong. It's a belly to belly business. And certain things should not be texted and emailed. You need to call them that's what they'll remember. So then I say would you know can I text you a link to review? Yeah, of course. And it says would you mind clicking this link to give me a good review on Google reviews are really important to me only takes a minute. Thanks again for letting me work for you then the link then if they say yes on the phone. Then I have another one. It says here it is only takes a few minutes to write something up. Thanks again really appreciate it. Reviews are very important in my world happy face, and then the link. That's it. And we've got 212 And then every once in a while have a count if you've got a team listening to this. I have contests if I want to get to a new like to get to 200 we had like 187 and I I'm one of our team meetings, I said, All right, we got to get to 13, we got to get 13 reviews in the next week, I'm gonna give 25 I'm gonna Venmo 25 bucks to the to each review you get for the next 13 till we get to 200. And so I made a fun little thing with it for my agents, my four agents, and they all went out and started busting it to get reviews.I like it, it seems simple, but most people won't do it. And the reason is, because most people aren't running a business, your salesperson, Jason Chuck, and you got to start thinking about these things in your business. Because your brand is going to be very important going forward, especially with this shift coming up, people are start looking at new things, the business is going to be as easy it was the last few years. And as we see the economy shift, as we see the recession coming into taking place, as of right now may 2022. How people are going to be a lot more. What's the word cautious of who they decide to hire, they're gonna look into it a little bit more, especially as the market shifts, it's not easy anymore. And when it does people second guessed to you. So the more content and more reviews you have the better for you. Quite frankly, I just saw stat today from the Tom Ferry conference. francesi posted it and he said 40% of the licensed agents in the United States didn't do one deal last year. Yeah. 40% How many agents are there? There's like 1.2 million or something like that. 1.5. What is it?In 2008. In Northeast Ohio, we had at the Akron area Board of Realtors, we had 2500 and something agents at the end of 2009, it dropped to 12 130. So here, what happens is if you look at the average income of a real estate agent, and they're getting a check every, say, three weeks, and then as this market, you know, it's harder to get offers accepted, you're trying five, six times just to get one commission check now. And you're buying leads. And then what happens is, the reason these agents get out is because their checks get too far apart. And then they have to get another job. So think about that. Now what can you do to secure your position in this industry, it's a recession proof industry, this ball of energy during the worst market we ever had. And my market was better in 2009. And California trust me, because we don't have the highs and lows. We lost 50% of the realtors. But we only lost 20% of the transactions. We went from about 5000 transactions to 4000. So we only so what happens is I went from selling 80 homes to 39 in one year. So even though I was like doing great, we I sold 39 homes in 2009. I went from making about I made about 200 grand a year throughout the 2000s. And then I made 87,000 gross and nine I thought my world was over we had two kids in private schools. Luckily cost of living here's low 2010 was the first year I ever netted over 300 grand my account I went in there when everyone was losing their jobs. He's like, do you know you netted 304,000 bucks. That's what you're paying taxes on? I'm like, Oh, no kidding. But it's because we we only lost 20% of the transactions, but half the realtors. So the agents that are listening to this that are serious about their business, now is the time for you to be strengthening, developing and nurturing relationships.Yep. And make sure you get your damn reviews on every single deal. You close.Yeah, because people like you just said when the market tightens, they're not just calling their wife's friend. You know, I found in 2009 If they were moving out of state or chasing a job or whatever, they were calling them the well known agents, we had the top 10 agents in our county, you know, 12 130 that year, we went from? Well, the top 10 agents sold 14% of the real estate. So the good news is when these markets correct, the top agents get pushed to the top. The bottom agents stay where they are because they don't rely on you know, they usually have a part time job or a spouse, the middle of the agents get just whacked. So now's the time for you to be thinking about what you know, getting reviews, staying in touch with your people posting videos every day so that people don't forget about you. This is the time to do it to to shore up your business before we have this big change. In my opinion.I agree. I'm never gonna say it all the time. I don't spike the football on this closing, I spoke my football and the third closing from the original closing rather than the referral and repeat client. So you only get that through building off the deals you're doing today because today's transactions are just future stepping stones to tomorrow's. So you got to play a long game in this business. Appreciate it dude, this is awesome. Why don't you tell our listeners about where they can find you? Will and I actually have a new tagline for you if you got a second. I was just looking because every penny counts.You're so good. Here's your What did you bump your head? What did you did?Because every penny counts. I just thought of it.No one's ever thought of that beforewe fight for every penny, you do that you were penny loafers. Ah some brandings some branding content here foryou both C and N E Y. Yes.Well, why don't you tell everyone where they can find you website? You guys right as market. Look them up toany great it's p e n n e y real estate.com. You can look me up on Facebook at well Penny p e n n EY or you can you can find me on Instagram at Penny p e n n EY underscore group exp. That's our Instagram thing. Don't be prepared to be unimpressed. I mean, I do. I do what I can most of my business. I stay in my lane. I go, I get my past clients to refer me and I get the reviews to leverage the past clients to get the arm's length people that don't know me. So that's Does that make sense? Yep. So that's what that's what we do. And hopefully it'll be enough.Appreciate it man, thank you for coming back on and sharing this stuff. Wills made his whole career he said 35 years not chasing leads but nurturing and developing and maintaining relationships. And everybody else I know successful in this business has is also successful in relationship development.

Restaurant365 Makes Restaurant Accounting Sexy – CEO Tony Smith (DH136)

There's a reason more than 12,000 restaurants trust Restaurant365 to help them become more profitable. Led by inspiring CEO Tony Smith, Restaurant365 knows — and loves — restaurants. “We have four core values. Our first one is we love good food,” Tony Smith said on the Digital Hospitality podcast, hosted by restaurant owner Shawn P. Walchef of https://calibbq.media. “We love the restaurant industry and we help restaurants thrive and grow.” Check out this Digital Hospitality podcast episode with Restaurant 365 CEO Tony Smith to learn about co-founding the all-in-one restaurant management software company, increasing profits and efficiency for restaurants, and the rockstar-themed Restaurant Transformation Tour 2022 stop in Los Angeles at the historic Wiltern theater. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erOB8yGwXR4 WATCH RESTAURANT365 INTERVIEW ON YOUTUBE 3 Takeaways from this Episode — Restaurant Accounting Made Sexy: When Tony Smith first started Restaurant365, accounting was a general, unsexy necessity of business in general. He and his team set out to meet the complications that are unique to restaurant accounting. [WATCH] A.A.V: Always Adding Value: Tony Smith and the team at Restaurant365 begin with the fundamental question of "what value is this idea going to add" when strategizing their next move. They understand that, though it is important, a successful business is more than just a positive Yelp review.  In an industry where technology is being introduced at a rapid pace, the goal for Restaurant365 continues to be meeting needs and adding value. [WATCH] Restaurant Transformation Tour: In person events are back! Restaurant365 is jumping back into things with the exciting, rockstar tour-themed Restaurant Transformation Tour that aims to cover all things to enhance restaurant success. [WATCH]   Restaurant365 CEO Tony Smith Owning and operating restaurants provides a set of trials that are unique to the industry. Tony Smith and Restaurant365 are doing their best to streamline the process to make their customers profits go up.  Prior to co-founding Restaurant365, the CEO honed his digital skillset with a software consulting company. As he spent his days researching, designing, and implementing accounting solutions, his love for good food never waned. The merging of the two interests created the framework for the core values of Restaurant365. Restaurant365 Core Values Love Good Food Share Positive Vibes Solve Problems, Together Relentlessly Seek Greatness Though technology can be complicated, Restaurant365's mission is to simplify the technology chain of restaurants for seamless integrations with other vital restaurant tech like Toast.
