"bentonville" Discussed on Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran

"That's why the greatest companies are all come from small towns. Like, Walmart came from Bentonville, Arkansas, and I remember reading his book and my gosh, a patient coming in town and saying, well, my husband, my wife, you tell hell in a church. I went into your place. I bought some high heel shoes that heal fell off. I took it back to exchange and they say, oh, we just saw it. We're not responsible for them. And let me tell you something. There's 2000 people living in Bentonville, where there's now only 1995 and we will never go to your place again. So she would tell. Sam that. And Sam say, well, there's nothing I can do. And she's like, what kind of attitude is that? There's so many. So as he got bigger, you know what he'd do? He'd take all the returns and then they'd come back and they'd say, oh, well, you know, I'm going to order a hundred more, but here's ten bad ones that I want to exchange for free, and if they said no, he got rid of the vendors. And guess who didn't play his game? Procter & Gamble. And then he was in two thirds of the states. And P and G wasn't there. European G, they dissed the wrong guy. So you know what they did. They moved their headquarters to Bentonville because they thought, okay, well if we move our headquarters there and we put our employees there and all the employees against them, the same churches and schools and softball games and restaurants. Eventually we'll make enough French 'cause Sam Walton would rather shoot our CEO of the doctor. He hates her guts, but someday those two are gonna die and it took 5 years of networking from the bottom up before Sam for gay P and G and let him come back in, but the bottom line bottom line bottom line is that it all comes down to relationships. And if you go under and you say, I'm hard for him and, you know, and you give him your cell phone number and your email address and you're totally transparent and you give him a refund of a fails and like someone will come in and they'll do a denture. They'll say, I hated my old entrance better. I want my money back. You're like, I'm not gonna give him back. Okay, great. So grandma's new denture lives two miles from your office, and she's 68. And her mother died at 98. So for 30 years, you're gonna have some 68 year old grandma telling everybody that you're the worst dentist in Bentonville, Arkansas. How good of an idea is that? Wouldn't you rather just make it right? I had a patient one time. I called her in the wife said he refuses to talk to you and I said we'd come in and she says, well, he says if he came in the office and saw he'd actually punch you. And I said, okay, that's okay, but I'm looking at his address. He's living on 21 19. He's tonto. I'm done to the days or anyway and stop by the house, and she goes, I don't think I'd be a good idea. I said, well, can I just go to the curb? And she goes, well, I don't recommend it. I did. I drove the curb, and I just went out there and he kept walking out. He was mad and a junkyard dog before is over. We were high 5 and we were laughing whatever. And he still talks about the time he almost knocked my ass out. And the bottom line is just stay humble. They're humans. There's two sides every story. It's not all I'm a dentist and you're not. I'll speak and you're right. These are my policies. I don't give a shit what you think. Man, we're all stuck on earth together. We're all in a biosphere. If you took an apple and cut it in half, that red skin is where we live, the whole bias, the whole amateurs, only 60 miles high, that whole apple, that's the 8000 mile wide diameter, and 90% of life you can't even see. I'm gonna be so sad we finally discover life on another planet because it's gonna be some snot ball on a rock. 90% of all life you can't even see. You're thinking it's gonna be some magical Tyrannosaurus Rex and it's gonna look like a burger out of here, some babies knows. It's gonna look like some shit out of an empty diaper and all there's life on another planet. It's a turn. We're all stuck in the biosphere. No one's getting off the line. We've been going around the sun 5 billion laps around the sun. We're all in it together. So just enjoy the ride.

"In northwest Arkansas kind of understand that dynamic. So if there are a lot of programs too, like the Delta I fund and the generator and pine bluff that are also run by women that are helping the ecosystem down there develop. And those businesses are all like they're not all putting out goods that you would see at a retail establishment. Some of them are house clean, cleaning, some are bakeries, some are child, day cares. I mean, but they're all being generated in a very high rate. I mean women across the board in this country have been shouldering the burden of starting new businesses. I mean, I can't remember the statistic right now. But it's high and then it's even higher for women in the delta in Arkansas to start those businesses. Yeah. And it's not as high here because access to 9 to 5 jobs is much higher than it is in other parts of the state. Correct. So if you need to put food on your table and you're good at cooking, you're more likely to start cooking for other people in the delta because. And I'm sure that's probably some good food, too. But yeah, that's a whole nother conversation. Yeah, you know, necessity is the mother of invention. And I do believe that, you know, when those opportunities present themselves, there's always doors that you can go through. So what are you hopeful to see happen with women run and the fact that you guys have kind of picked up this mantle, you're running with it, right Lindsey Jennings has made it, you know, one of the focal points of I mean, you are a still a law firm, but this is an important issue. And so what are you hoping to achieve in the near future besides just creating awareness like we are with this podcast and talking about it and making more women aware of the fact that there are programs out here like this that exist? And that's one of the reasons why I want to do this because I wanted to scream from the highest hill that, hey, this is here. This is available. I'm always telling somebody about ASB, TDC, I'm always telling somebody about startup junkie and all these other programs and I'm thinking men, you could be taking advantage of all these resources that are right here under your nose, but sometimes we're just not aware of it. So both of those organizations tend to have a seat at our table. I'm like right now we're virtual. They get invites, the last one that we did last Thursday, Amy Robinson from the ASB TDC pops in, and at that point we're actually talking about business plans and marketing plans. Like, okay, if you can't do this on your own, like our speaker can go see Amy. Right. Because we want that opportunity. We want those connections to be made, one of the things that I love the most was immediately was our first session for woman run back in 2019. There was a connection made between the speaker and one of the attendees and they ended up having a business relationship after that. That's awesome. So we want the attendees to be able to accelerate their businesses in a way that makes sense for them. We want to fix a lot of the capital issues and so trying to promote the women's foundation trying to any organization that's trying to combat this. We have a speaker coming up later this year that she wrote an article with me since hallett about the access to capital issues in Arkansas and she's gonna talk and we're hurt. She has an organization right now. That's moving forward on the access to capital concerns. Yeah, and that's important for people to know and just to mention some of the stakeholders that you guys are involved with. We did mention the ASB TDC, greater Bentonville Chamber of Commerce, conductor, Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce, Rogers Lowell, area Chamber of Commerce, shout out to Karen wagon and the rest of the folks there. Grit studios, startup junkie, like I mentioned before in the venture center. So these are just a few of the stakeholders that have partnered up with women run and are trying to play a role in getting access for women to all of these different resources. Like you said Amy Robinson. I did a program with her and she's fantastic. She's just like you could watch her her ted-talks and I mean just, you know, we actually have a lot of resources right here available to you, you being the listener, especially if you're a woman, a woman and you're trying to start your own business or you are running your own business, but you feel like you sometimes running in the mud, there are people that will throw a line your way and pull you out of that and pull you on to solid ground, right? Again, when we build a business, we want to build it with a firm foundation. And a lot of times that firm foundation starts with quality information, with people that can really breathe life into your dreams and visions. And so important thing that one benefit of the pandemic. Everything's virtual now. Yeah. And we record it. And then we put it out in our woman run newsletter. And so it's then like the last speaker, the satori road proprietor, Maddie, she's just laying all these wonderful nuggets about successful branding, but if you can't attend you can then get the newsletter and listen to it at your leisure and I know a number of female clients that are working in the middle of the night. And so it's just it makes it easy for if you have another job or have children. That's like the creed of the side hustler. And I'm always talking about you know, I tell people all the time, you got to get a side hustle. I mean, my wife has a little side hustle. She's doing dyslexia therapy, tutoring. And I mean, it's, you know, we were walking through some of the things that she's doing. As a matter of fact, I'm actually going to send her to ASB TDC because I think she could get some additional help and not that I can't help her, but you know, there are other resources out there that could speak specifically to some of the challenges that she might face because it addition to the capital issue it's just access. How do I get access to the people that can give me some ideas about what's the best way to approach this? I've never run a tutoring business. So there are other people out there that have, so anybody listening to this is run a tutoring agency specifically for dyslexia therapy or reading, let me know, shout out, hit your boy up and share with him because I'd love to introduce you to my wife, but the bottom line is she's not alone. There are a lot of women that are dealing with that same thing that are up late at night trying to figure out this thing and try to make sense of it. And that's part of the process, right? I mean, it's not nice. I wish it were nice and neat, running starting and running a business does not need. It's messy. It's quite messy. And it's not always a clear path. Right. And it.

Here i think one hundred percent in because then you know walmart seems invested in like retaining talent here as well right and so they've invested all this money in infrastructure. Justin like you know things you can do restaurants in the rope swing group right the different anything else. that's here. he really really cool stuff. Because you wanna draw on that austin or san francisco talent in right like make this a place where people want to stick around and then all those vendors are creating jobs for local people as well and so. It's not all just outside. Like i think everybody's like i said i've been here for thirty years and like the benefit comes to me in some way right hand so yeah absolutely. It's a great area. It is i mean like i said. I'm looking at my kids now. They're getting involved with mountain biking. We hear where you're kind of like. I don't know if we're technically a mountain bike capital but we wanna be mountain bike capital which i think is a big deal in my understanding is we have the number one mountain biking trail in the world. Oh is that the case. Maybe not the world. But it's the country for sure. Okay all right lance armstrong trains here now for his stuff. Okay we interviewed on. Look what. I did a guy who's a bike mechanic. Okay and i had no idea sir talking about all this stuff. I was like what is happening. They were in seattle for some big convention. And everybody's talking about like i forget. The name has some crazy. Name like dragons. I don't remember this trail is like the the true mountain bike trail. It's dumb mecca. The place to go to listen. I was talking to a friend and she said that. A bunch of african american mountain bikers from around the country descended on bentonville a couple of weeks ago and like forty or fifty of them. Which you know fifteen twenty years ago that would have been unheard of. They all descended here because they heard that this is some of the best trails and they absolutely love it and want to come back and then a professional biker. His name's roussin body and He is He came here in spoke recently for a bike. Pock event affiliated with bike. Nwea during bike monk in may. So if you if you if you if you're traveling thing what's gonna throw in pedal it forward to me because that's a whole nother group. That was part of this and they they were there but anyway he was telling me how excited he was to be a part of what's happening with the movement of of mountain biking here and just ethnicity inclusivity of it there. Johnny get everybody involved. Dad the women on from arkansas latina's in dc. Which is latin next group of women that like to ride their bikes right and they want to do it in a group setting and now they go out and they've got a huge following so if you see a bunch of ladies with pink cycling jerseys on the trail. That's probably arkansas latina's nbc. So let's goal so shout out to them. And i mean that's kind of what we're seeing here. Yeah right and that started somewhere in. Now look where we are. I think north as arkansas is not that there's not room for improvement has done a good job of inclusivity. From the beginning. I think failed drove. I think i live here at the. You know the university. And some of those things i think like. It's always had that kind of like art. Hippy kind of vibe to write like fable has a very good music scene and really good art scene. And i think in general. It's always felt like a more collaborative area in northwest arkansas. Twos that it does feel from my limited perspective. He tries hard to be inclusive to everybody. Make everybody feel welcome. Yarrow's where they're from or what they're doing or whatever you know absolutely yeah and i think you know it was funny. My wife and i were talking about it on our hot wath this morning that we said yeah you know each town has its own unique perspectives yet but because we are so close together you know you can kind of bunch in bentonville rogers springdale in bill into one collective community. It's a metro area. It is a metro yet. But it's not like so spread out. Where oh my god. I don't know if i can you know just like houston where you talk about the woodland's or something like that and you're like man. That's all way across town. It's like i can get to bentonville fifteen minutes and you know. I can go up there and do what i need to do. And we've got certain traffic arteries that can get us back and forth in quick will need to expand those of course as the population grows. 'cause i'm sure. At some point. People will be cursing on forty nine because of the traffic right because it just will deal out drive. I think people curse on it. Now i read to me. Listen you're talking to somebody that lived in the bay area and was just relocated here from boston. Listen nobody knows a traffic know. And so it's all relative. But i could see how people would be a little upset but yeah i mean twenty years ago right like you could get to rogers bend villain fifteen minutes from here in but nobody did it either because every community felt very like silo decided to sell them and that's before forty nine came into play for the way. Yeah before the greenway. And like now. I just i get frustrated. Sometimes i'm forty nine reich traffic since it's not compared to other places i've been at all but like in perspective what you grew up with what you knew. It's like this is so much worse than it was but it really is not. It's not houston right. Or i'm sure san francisco in german through san francisco yet did once. Yes definitely not. As bad as i ask you wanna wine or going across the bay. Bridget's pretty fierce. It is more than more than a notion. that's a fair share with my driving in l. a. and that's it is definitely way way better there. Yes but anyway this is this is not a show about traffic com comparisons but But but yeah. I think anybody coming here. If you're thinking about coming here just know that whatever it just take into consideration any of your worst traffic experiences it pales. You won't experience that here. Absolutely that's the case. Yeah and that's really only getting from city to city like with any of those spots right. Getting around them is super easy. And i'm saying like just don't drive at eight. Am or five pm. The rest of the timer. Good yeah. there's no problems at all totally on a percent so before we started talking we kinda talked about. Just the growth of podcasting really. Yeah i guess. I can count riff about podcasting with you so this a meta conversation day. Okay i cast about podcast. I like it so but tell me in your mind. What has podcasting opened up for you. Because i'm constantly encouraging people to either start a podcast and i'm telling businesses. Hey you need to consider extending your brand through storytelling. Right and in through through podcasting. In like i'll i wanna do videos and we were talking earlier about how videos are not quite the same right at all at all and so i would love just to kinda share your thoughts on podcasting as a whole the medium of what it means to you but then also what you think it represents i know i have my ideas about it what it represents today and also what i think it's going to be in the future. But what are your thoughts. So i think podcasting is it's still in its infancy and a lot of ways right and i had this conversation longer with somebody like you. I feel you kind of have three distinct. Podcast formats right. You have fiction. Which.

So I know we're having get it but they had, I mean, lentils, on lentils, on lentils, like bags and bags of every lintel you can never think of. I didn't know. There were this many lentils wage. So much and like rice and the fresh produce that I mentioned the Frozen items. They had ice cream. They tend ice cream. Frozen on Frozen Paratha, bread. Just, I mean, so many amazing things and we were talking about it. If I'm making a curry at home, it's a process. Like it's a lot of work and I can make my own naan bread. Sometimes I just don't want to add that to my plate. So I'm probably going to go and get some Frozen on and just like, keep it. Yeah. And I have, you know, some of those mixes like, where you can make falafel and like I want it own naan bread. So I'm probably just going to like keep that in my freezer, but they had so many things just an amazing Market in Bentonville would highly recommend, and I did want to give honorable mention to Christian mentioned, two other great places indiamart and I'm going to butcher this name. I'm so sorry, some bed Hall. My that's how it's spelled, I'm not sure if if I'm saying that correct. But we'll put it in the show notes so you know what the name actually is and there are those both in Bentonville. Those are both in bed. They're actually they're probably less than a mile from India Plaza. So they're all within the same, like airbags, which is really, really convenient.

If she called, This is a Hispanic supermarket. And I mean, the word Supermarket which I'll get into. It's called super mercado La villita in Rogers. So it's on a street and I mean, it is a massive Supermarket, like everything you can think of from Personal Care items to food and every Hispanic item, like, I could think of it was so much so much stuff tons of amazing produce, especially peppers, like a lot of fresh peppers from and I'm not a pepper person normally, but like I saw red jalapeno, Don't see those anywhere. There was some kind of a yellow pepper and I'm not talking a bell pepper. I'm talking like it was kind of a whitish yellow pepper. Unsure how spicy it was not going to try it off, but they had Habanero's, I mean, and the produce just looked amazing, like, I mean amazing-looking produce. They had poblanos, they had Citrus that, I mean, they had everything tons of dried peppers as well. So you'll see like, especially chefs use the dried peppers, and they'll rehydrate them and put them in a sauce, but you can't find them anywhere to save your.

And I think, you know, that's a credit to everyone. Everyone there all the way from, you know, the local business and political leaders all the way down to, you know, the people working in the corner store and and the idea that, you know, it feels like it has an identity job.

"Area that we think are compelling for remote work. One is, you know obviously the end unit design is important. So as you you may be wrong, I am currently many people across America are working from home and that means inside of your home you're doing work. And so when you're doing that and back to that. So you know, I know you talked about previously but the idea of the tubes three-day-a-week computer and somebody who's going to be moving to three days a week of their office life into their home. And that person will want a different type of living situation than someone who's a going into the office 5 days a week. You're going to want. Be it a dedicated office in your unit via it. A demarcated place that really helps Define where you do work of all struggled with the idea that like wage. There's no way to really switch from work to living as you go day in and day out and this, this current environment. So, so creating something newer it is, it's just, it's just one, it's one long week. So getting some way in the inside job, You know, someone's living space to facilitate that is as part of it. Second is also you know, someone in the design area and it's creating opportunities for within the multi-family building and Thursday are related project to have space, for co-working space, for incubators space, that allows people to have that that work environment and that, that can address everything from, you know, the occasional user two to three-week user all the way to the the true digital Nomad who's completely remote and fully untethered from going into an office. So creating spaces in sort of building amenities creating spaces and commercial buildings that allows for people to really feel functional and really feel like it's designed. It's not a crowded corner at a coffee shop where you're trying to make it make it do something that really works. Well, and the third pieces, how to bring awareness and, and draw, understanding to people who aren't just looking for your standard apartment and and want to find a place to live, you know, they've kind of walking into different buildings in a month. The area. It's like, how do you make people aware that this offering is there not just to the people who are in that City? But the people in that region who maybe would be attracted to sort of that situation. And now have a newfound flexibility all the way to people across the country who are, like, I'm looking for a new place to live. I'm completely remote or my office is giving me flexibility to move to one of these five places across the country. I have a blank slate and I can find somewhere else that suits, My Lifestyle, my priorities and back to Bentonville. It's that you have a, you know, high quality of life, endurable outdoor activities, you have strong economy. So depending on what you're looking for, whether you're already in place and fully remote, or you're someone who's looking for a local employment. But you want to go somewhere with a strong, you know, job market within the immediate vicinity Bentonville does that. And then on top of that you realize that you had those those high-value experiences that that mean a lot especially to today's consumer. So how do people become aware of that and how do they know? And I think North West Arkansas dog done a great job of promoting the region. As a destination for workers. There's the the $10 incentive $10,000 incentive that they're offering. There's a lot of promotion just awareness going on and so we want to carry that forward to see what is going on in the actual living environment. And let people know that there are these these offerings that should fit and support their their lifestyle and what they want to get done. Yeah I love that. And I mean honestly you'll most you know connecting the dots of living through real estate development as it pertains to how people are living nowadays and as you and I discussed early on before we started recording that I don't think anybody is going to look at the way that people work the same way after this pandemic. I think fundamentally some things are going to change and you are seeing more individuals doing things differently that we would have thought, you know, just a couple of years ago, would have been heresy, you know, and I'll just give you one example. I know an individual here in Northwest Arkansas, that moved here to take a job with one of the thoughts. Like three companies and then he left. And then, so we had a really good job here and then he left take a job with another big company based out of another southern city and then elected after taking a job and thinking he was going to move said, you know what, actually, really like it here. I'm not going to leave and negotiated that he could stay and be domiciled here in Northwest Arkansas, even though he has to go to another state to work out of that company. And so, you know, that is the perfect example of the itch that you guys are going to scratch with common for a lot of remote workers. It's just, that type of situation has more companies become comfortable with having people. You know, not having necessarily that FaceTime that was so such a big deal back in the day, in Corporate America, it's going to create new opportunities and I believe that you guys are are leveraging those new opportunities with this program that common is put together. Absolutely. And I think, you know, we're all excited about it because people are excited about it. Flexibility is a people value that, you know, I think that's one thing that we've all found out is that people value the ability to make choice and they like flexibility and they like, having the chance to, you know, set off their their daily life in a certain way. And, and the things that, you know, we're working on we'll hopefully specific date that and bring awareness to opportunities, that, you know, people don't necessarily know. It's some people are looking for something that they don't know where it's added it. Maybe Bentonville, right? And it may be, you know, somewhere that offers all those things we talked about, and we're a national company, we, you know, have properties across, you know, project we managed across the country and we have a dialogue with the consumer, you know, that this in all these different cities. And that's one of the things we're excited about exploring and is someone who lives in San Francisco and Seattle, or or New York right now. You know, can we introduce them to the idea of, you know, what's being on offer in in Bentonville and and you know, something that they have wage. Chance to take advantage of it, you know, wasn't there previously been the same way and so I think for being part of that, that exploration and that, you know, that finding of of an opportunity for living that's that's awful. You know, new to them. I think is pretty cool. Yeah. And I think it, I do want to point out that you. I mean you guys are already putting into practice a lot of what we've been discussing today. So this is not your first rodeo wage. You know we're not Crash Test Dummies here, in Northwest Arkansas. You guys have been doing this around the country and a lot of key locations and key demographic areas. So you have started figuring out what works, what doesn't work, like you said, you'll be able to apply that here in Northwest Arkansas? Absolutely. Absolutely. And I think having an understanding of, you know, typically a lot of our markets have been, you know, we start in 2015 and and from the outset, a lot of our markets had been on the, you know, on the coast. So in the New York's in San Francisco's and the Seattle's. And in that case, you know, from 2015 dead, No on. We were attracting and providing an offer to. A lot of people were moving to those cities as was the sort of typical Dynamic of the last ten to fifteen years were, people were moving to, you know, New York or San Francisco for, you know, their first or second job out of the University. They wanted a place to come that provided convenient, affordable offering in terms of, you know, finding an apartment individuals places. Read about pays incomes for two decades and you know, we were always able to provide a great value to people because they could find an apartment to live in with us that, you know, fit their budget and was convenient Isabel. And we were able to sort of begin that conversation with them before they even got to the city often times. And I think that's one of the things that we're excited about here, where it's almost kind of going the other direction to a certain degree where people will be interested in in finding a more affordable place to live. That has a high quality of life or they think there's a strong sustainable economy. And in that regard, it's something we can have that conversation with them. Before they necessarily arrive in Bentonville or Rocky Mount, North Carolina or Ogden Utah. And you know how that dialogue and bring them to that place and it successful way? Yeah, I thought oh man you put a nice bow on that and I love that. So just for for the listeners sake and what will put all this in the show notes, everything that Matthew has been sharing, what's the best way for people to get in touch with.

"Bring their vision and their, their understanding to us. And we worked with them to find what we thought were off the most interesting and exciting and and viable opportunities. And, you know, one of those has been bill. Yeah, cuz and just going to go down the list. So, New Orleans, you had Bentonville. You had Rocky Mount North Carolina, Ogden Utah, and Rochester New York. I mean, you know, honestly places that are not, I mean, outside of New Orleans. I mean, none of these are big cities, but they are off with, they are within proximity of other large areas, but they also provide, you know, maybe some different options that you wouldn't normally find. And so, I'm curious, dog. Are you able to say, how many actually submitted rfps for this? Yeah, we originally had an expression of Interest phase where people submitted their proposals. At that phase, we got off submissions from across the country. Very distribute, widely distributed. And what we realized when we reviewed those, twenty-eight expressions of Interest was, there was a sort of different categories of groups that had similar characteristics, you know? So the city's looked in a group in terms of how we we would look at them as addressing this remote work opportunity. So we would think of somewhere like Rada Bogdan where it's got proximity to skiing, it's got sort of a destination feel in terms of people will travel to that region and and take advantage of the the mountains Thursday we had Rochester is is a historic downtown, with sort of revitalization story where people committed to the the, the city and the region are, are we focusing on making the dog? Go downtown and we saw that across multiple other submissions obviously, New Orleans is, you know, a fairly established City, also destination but the largest of the five finalists, and then Rocky Mount prep group in the city. And, and the project there is very much about placemaking, you know, creating something kind of not from scratch. But using the context of historical buildings and creating really special places that, you know, authors live work and played successfully in a very compelling way. And then Bentonville is somewhere that we realized that there was a great commitment from the people of the local community just to make it successful and to diversify the economy to bring culture to bring, you know, Bentonville up into the awareness of people from across the country. Especially if they're looking for new places to call home, many see that happening even pre pandemic with the investment in the in the cultural assets, the commitment to groups like blue, crane to help build. You know, what is a successful local and Regional economy dead. On the back of the traditional corporate employers, that have been a big part of making, you know, Bentonville successful. Yeah. And you know and again, blue crane was actually something I had learned about cuz I wasn't really familiar with them. I I knew, you know, Runway group has a number of it's like an umbrella company has a number of different initiatives under it and blue crane as a development. Arm happens to be one of those. So they've been really successful with you know kind of rolling out a number of different initiatives in this area which I think are just going to gain additional traction as things move on. I mean we've recently been named one of the mountain biking capital of the world and so there's a thriving mountain bike community in in Bentonville area. Do you like to Mountain Bike by any chance? I do, I do not specifically mountain bike. I will use the bicycle to get from point A to point B from time to time. I'm okay, may be lack the sense of adventure that that might mountain biking demands, but I do think, you know, the idea that there's a lifestyle on top of a strong, local economy is a big part of what we were laughing. Yeah. So it's the idea that, you know, there's outdoor opportunities for mountain biking or fly fishing or kayaking on top of strong local jobs that kind of all levels of employment and a real commitment to creating those. You know, what I would describe as as Global level cultural assets, right? So you have those things, you like, it's a nice place to live cuz I can go outside and go out and biking. I have good with work with a good cost of living. And on top of that, that absolute kind of peak of The Human Experience that you get from from arts and culture and things like that is supported by the local patrons. I think that's a great combination. That's what stood out to us from Bentonville. Okay? Yeah, no, I love that. And and you're absolutely right. You've hit the nail on the head, with regard to this area and and what it represents. I think to all of us I know my listener, probably wondering what will Randy what's so special about these? You know, multifamily dwellings. These dwellings that that you guys are pulling together and designing, can you kind of walk us through the differential? Being factor for common versus like another developer, that might be out there, developing some, some facilities for living just in general. Yeah. So I think, first and foremost, it's important to sort of frame what we do. And then when our partners do so, we're partnering with, with blue crane, and, you know, as an operator and a designer. And we bring technology and sort of that ability to gain Market least managed. And then on the front end, and what's very important is remote work process, design the properties and then we'll work with the developer and owner who will oftentimes have a lot of local expertise and sort of the core of the project where they have the site and they will create the buildings and we'll work partnership with them to understand what is the right product. How do we envision it? What should it look like to the consumer and, and how does it achieve the most would be the most successful opportunity to can be? So, in that sense, what that means for the remote work Hub, is that we're working a lot with our partners to understand how to create a live work in birth. I meant that's new that's Innovative that really addresses. This remote worker demand, it helps draw the types of residents not just to this project but to the the neighborhood in the city that you know, many places have trying to attract for some time. So there's really kind of Three core aspects and and where we're at right now in this remote work Hub, RFP processes that we're going through a series of workshops, each of the five finalists off into a collaborative, understanding about how to deliver this type of concept. And I say collaborative because it is very much, that one of the things back to that point about why, an RFP was a great way to do this month. It's really working with the local partner and understanding, what is the right? What is right? Answer for this specific region, a specific City and the specific site, right? So we didn't want to invent this in a lab and just kind of drop it off and be like, here's the thing, it's not like that. It needs to be something that integrates with with what's going on in any given immediate area. So to that where we've seen is that there's kind of Three core opportunity job And sort of the design operating and and marketing.

"A fox and welcome to another episode of I am Northwest Arkansas, I'm your host, Randy, Wilburn. I'm excited to be here today with my current guest. Matthew Mixon is a senior director of real estate with common and common as the leading real estate brand and Tech driven operating platform. Start of New York and they have awarded finalist in the last few weeks for the remote work Hub, which is they put out an RFP several months ago. And one of the organizations that submitted an RFP was blue crane, which is an extension of the runway group here in Northwest Arkansas. And so it seems like Bentonville is going to be one of the five finalists chosen for the remote work Hub. RFP that common put out many months ago. And so, without further Ado, I want to welcome to the show Matthew mixing to share a little bit about him and a little bit about common. And what we could expect here in Northwest Arkansas and in the coming years, when it comes to remote work hubs, how are you Matthew? I'm good. How you doing? Good, good! Good. So glad to have you on. Well, as we always like to start off, I would love to just tell your quick superhero origin story about you and how you got too common. And, and a little bit about the company for for those in the dog. Northwest Arkansas audience, that may not have heard the news or heard about this program. That is going to be rolled out here in Bentonville. I'd love for you to tell us a little bit more about that. Sure. So I'll give a little bit of background about myself and then and talk about, you know, what common was looking to accomplish with the remote work Hub and how that Broadband Bill to us. And you know how we think we want to be a part of the city in the future. So my background is, you know, I was born in Tucson Arizona. You know, I've always been interested in, you know, lived there for for, you know, up until my late twenties and always been interested in in real estate, in real estate development, and architecture and design and and a lot of those things. And, you know, I ended up going to graduate school in New York. So kind of making the move from a a medium size city to a large city wage, kind of why I want to, you know, bring up that transition and and connect its relevance to the idea of the remote work. You know, in is is bringing this this program forward for two main reasons. Wage, You know, one is, we are looking at ways to provide design in site, operational expertise to sort of address this, this new emerging trend of remote workers, and then also bringing Economic Opportunity to cities that have traditionally not been in sort of direct benefit of the knowledge economy. So when we think about that, we think about the New York's, the San Francisco's, the Los Angeles Seattle's. And there's a lot of other great cities in this country that have tremendous potential and tremendous community. That that that are committed to the cities and what you know to see them succeed and Achieve and I think this you know this remote work Trend that has come out of the current pandemic you know which is a negative, you know, and of itself but is unlocked some, you know, change in the world. And one of those things was this remote work, emerging remote worker. So you know all that to be said, you know, someone who's always been wage. To you know, real estate and and interested in cities and what's going on there. And this is kind of a interesting culmination for me. If someone comes from a city of, you know, under a million people as lived in a city with over 15 million people and is looking at what the changing landscape will be in the future. So I'm excited to be having this conversation in the context of Bentonville in Northwest Arkansas. Yeah. No, I think it's interesting cuz just like you said. I mean choice on to New York. I mean, they're like night and day. But you know, theoretically, with a type of product that you guys are creating and working on. Somebody could live in Tucson but working out of New York. And so off, there are a lot of unique opportunities there. So tell us a little bit about the remote work Hub. How did this idea generate out of common? Where you guys kind of mulling this around and saying, well, what's the best way to roll out this concept that we have? How did that come about? Yeah, so obviously, you know about early last fall, after we've been into the pandemic shut down for Thursday, No, five, six months, it became clear that you know, the this remote work opportunity and and the trend. And the the way that the world was going to go going forward, still a lot of uncertainty, but it was clear that, you know, remote was going to be something that was sustained through. You know, even the revolution of of the pandemic and in that context, it's a trend that's been in place even before the pandemic can really the Potomac just accelerated its own in that context, the, our founder and CEO Brad Hargreaves and our creative director. Jen Chang wanted to look at, you know, what is the right way to understand this opportunity and, and to address this emerging remote worker, as a source of demand as somebody who's going to be key in the future of, not just work, but how people live, where residential Brandon operator, we typically work in manage, you know, work on developing designing managing Residential Properties. So, how do we understand that connection between what's happening in the work side? What's happening in the living wage? All right, you know, we work with developers and owners. We help them. Come up with product. People want to live in if people's daily guys are changing and they're going to be working, you know, a different type of schedule. They're going to be going to the office, a different type of cadence that's going to impact what's happening to them at home. And that's where we are usually involved. And so they wanted to create something that addresses that that emerged tried and to do that, I think the thought was okay, we can try to create this in this very, this remote work Hub, Concept in a very kind of blank slate, sort of way, and just Envision this product sort of in and of itself. But rather than do that, what the company decided to do was bottom up Source it through this RP process. And and really let the market come to us and let the creative people in all of these various cities and with these different projects come to us to provide their insights and interpretations about what the Future remote work could be, and how that could be connected with their specific projects and opportunities. So we envision, it wage. As you know, a way to engage, please sat in a room and try to kind of find where we had the best place to consider a remote work Hub and and a project that addresses the future of remote work. You know, we would have been a much less successful than doing it the way that we did through the RFP, where it allowed people to.

Walmart will test grocery deliveries to a smart cooler on customers' doorsteps

"That I really like. And e think this is going to lead to further adoption of grocery deliveries they're going to and they're doing this just in Arkansas is this test But they're gonna put smart coolers on customers doorsteps so that you know when they deliver your produce and your milk and things like that. It's not sitting out in the hot sun. I like this idea, and it shows and demonstrates that perhaps grocery delivery has legs. Yeah, I think it's something that's interesting there. You know, doing this. They're testing it just in their hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas to begin with, So it's It's gonna be a small pilot program that they are starting here, but It's something that I do think it is interesting to deal with some of the problems that you have with grocery delivery of, namely Hey, let's say that you had specified a certain time that you wanted things delivered in they don't come there. If you're sitting there, and you know the summer anywhere in the United States, and you got milk sitting out for an hour to in the hot summer sun That's not a very good thing. So you know this is an interesting little pilot program that they're starting up. I don't know if this becomes, you know the standard necessarily, but Think for customers that are, you know, post pandemic gonna be heavy users of grocery delivery. This is something that can put some of those fears about spoiled food to rest. If you're using delivery, as opposed to go into the store and picking up on your own, do you guys remember, Like two years ago, we covered this on the show where Wal Mart was actually looking into Having their delivery drivers have access to your fridge so they would do with some sort of a smart lock, and I hated that. And I think that's why these smart coolers. Now, the next step because nobody wanted somebody walking through their house, even if it was on camera. Yeah, No, I just I'm curious that it'll be very interesting to see there's been, you know, Talk about zoom technology and face mask. Do you think about all the things that have happened? As a result of covert and grocery delivery was a big one, right? Does that continue and take a lot of investors are trying to figure that out as well. Does that trend continue?

"So your download this app got on your phone you do have down as an Amazon account as well. That's kind of a different conversation. But basically what help them. You check your phone and you go to Walmart. Now. I live nine miles right now from downtown Bentonville and I have Source directly at their main store right across in their main office at Walmart and I my phone now and I'm scanning products with my phone with Amazon seller app and basically through the camera and through this software. It's going to read the barcode on a product so long up a product that's called Burt's Bees. I'm pretty sure everybody is familiar with parts fees and on the back of the UPC code and I know for a fact these are sold on Amazon cuz that's where I buy them. But anyway, so your phone off Amazon identify read that UPC code and what it's looking for through their software is to see if it is on the Amazon catalog that in their product catalog in their product offerings. And then and this is like a microsecond and you'll feel your phone kind of do a little buzz it's working and then boom it shows the listing and what it does is it lists all the important data that's important for us. As a flipper you can call her sells a product flipper. So Amazon is accommodating this they like, you know how fast it's selling meaning it's ranked. They show the profit. They you show the cost of one of this going to be for you to ship it into an Amazon warehouse who wait a minute they show how many sellers so they are setting up these data points and there's others that are young and we actually have a card that we send our members that there's like twelve different factors you want to be aware of but so basically it's like in real estate they by little they sell them they don't call it Arbitrage they call it house flipping. There's a lot of T shows to that effect. It's the same thing except this is so not about fixing up a product making it squeaky-clean and then shipping it in your taking a product off the shelf of a local store like Walmart like Walmart, you're looking for that price differential you consider these other factors and then you ship it in to Amazon as an FBA seller dead. You make the profit. Does that make sense or do you have any questions beyond that? Yeah. Well number one. I notice how you pronouncing Arbitrage differently than you could always reading arbitrations. You notice like lazy mouth here knowing opened it up and there are massage. But yeah, I think it makes a lot of sense though getting it to Amazon and guess their warehouse wage that that's really interesting. So you can go on Amazon. You can see third-party sellers we can go shopping Amazon everybody pretty much tops and Amazon all the time. They see these third-party sellers. Sometimes their crime. Sometimes they're not and I know there's a lot of different factors that go into that. I want to go too deep in that just yet.

K. area and most of it seems to be coming out of that and then surely these reserves are going to get diminished as they get to Minnesota where more and demand starts to go off then in all likelihood will start to I see some growth here in the stock but I don't think it's gonna be anytime soon I know they've been down a long time but I wouldn't hold both of them I would soon as soon as one I'm gets breaking broke is it breaks even I would probably start thinking about getting rid of that but you got a hold it at this point especially since you have so much time all right my computer's not going so let me go to the phones go to crank you know higher right correct hi Dan god bless you and thank you during my call sure I have a I have a question about inflation if I'm able to sell my home hopefully in the next month or so how soon should I be concerned about buying another home as opposed to renting or living with family before I would lose mark the buying power of the game that idea for it's a really tough question I wouldn't wait too long I don't we're never going to see interest rates are this low again are there you know the downside is interest rates are allowed per household home prices are coming out so yes I would I would be concerned so much of it is going to be about the election I hate to say that I'm not saying that so much lately but it's just the way it is and if if the election doesn't go our you know we start seeing things turning Alexion goes to let's say it goes to Biden but Republicans pick up the house of representatives in two major told the Senate then we've got an economy that's not going to be too bad but unfortunately we're gonna have a do nothing they're gonna me for four years because nothing's gonna get done so yeah that's going to be a problem that means they're gonna inflation is going to be allowed to creep in so that's going to be a problem and I think we'll see dramatic slowdown in the economy and the economy slows down too much inflation is going to creep in the same could be true with the debt that we've incurred the debt the national debt I stayed earlier this week in a commentary on my website I said I think inflation is going to be a problem in twenty twenty one and that's going to be a problem I I I said you know we're gonna have to start looking at the deck so all I would all I would say is I mean I would rather see you do it sooner rather than later why take the chance in waiting hi it just doesn't it doesn't make sense and once it starts going to ramp up so fast and fast is ramping up our mortgage companies are gonna be pulling back on the reins so it's going to be really tough excellent thank you very much for your time god bless you thank you Craig I appreciate I'm glad you called because stuff thank you let me go to mark in Texas Hey mark hello good morning good morning thanks for helping us out sure got a question once we fill out our all our sectors with about three stocks in each sector the right percentages and such but we're still hadn't you know look we're still ed and every month regularly and we put it into cash flow so the stock we've already included are sectors they're no longer on your buy list so how do we continue to use our cash to buy more you.

O. R. it's an anonymizing browser now there there is a downside to using Tor and with that is that when you go to certain websites it may say whoa this content is not available because you're coming from a different country or if you go to Google it'll be all in German and you're like I didn't study that in school this fall no but idea that's why the V. P. N. is preferred because you can pick a server like express three PM as a sponsor of ours but you can pick a server say in San Francisco Los Angeles or wherever and so you're still physically virtually located there in the United States if you want to take this to the extreme is that there's a and and this gets really tacky is that there's a a Lennix live image called tales a basically you're going to put this on a USB drive and only use the USB drive okay so nothing's going to be going through your system at all you're just going to be right on that you know it if you don't want to do any of that you have to do go real old school you're going to abandon all your technology I think that you're going to go back to paper and pen all my gosh right ed and nobody can really track well I'm sure somebody could drag you then but it's not going to be as much as you would expect it the source of the information you know and the and that's where the internet provides that information and if you don't go looking for it you're not going to be tracked but yes you know you start accumulating that many trackers you start losing internet power and things slow down well and you know when you do and does make you sit back and say you know where's all this data going and how is it being tied back to me so you know I would say your easiest solution is to use IV PM you know one that you pick the one that I like the one that I indoors is called express VPN it's it's truly so easy two years I mean you just download it views my name Kim as the pro go to get three months free but it's really just super simple you just like the three little cliques and you're like protected literally and it's not going to slow you down that's always been a major concern with me when you get VPNs it's like and start seeing that buffering message all the time and you're like I'll make it stop well with express free can you're not gonna get that so if you want to check it out totally up to you again they are an advertiser express BPN dot com slash Kim is that address where you want to go thank you so much for your call today press let's see we're gonna do our digital life texted but first I guess say about I drive what price tag would value would you put on the data that you've got on your computer you don't think about a dollar amount until someone tries to take all that data way cyber hackers using ransomware take hold of your computer but I'll tell you there are just all over more prevalent as ever and we're talking about big cities and small towns tens of thousands of individuals have all reported being a victim of ransomware that just a tax seems like anybody this past year now if a ransomware gets on your system is that they're trying to figure out how to pay him off and big point three hundred seven hundred dollars because if you have a back up it's just the smart thing to do you could just tell those ransomware people you know what I don't care I mean it doesn't matter to me because I have a back up with I drive dot com they make it easy.
