"Each week we take you beyond the headlines and help you understand what it all means for Israel and the Jewish people. I'm Stephie Cogan. And I'm on Uber. Sheer men Israel finally has a government for real. This is not one of those. Israel just had an election conversations or Israel almost has a government conversations or anything like that. There's a prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu you may have heard of him and something new called an alternate prime minister. He's named any gods and if all goes according to plan he will switch places within the WHO in a year and a half becoming prime minister in November. Twenty twenty one. There's a cabinet. There are Knesset Committees for the first time in nearly a year and a half the legislature and the executive are fully back. Open for business with appropriate social distancing of course with us now to help explain what to expect from this. New Government is Gil Hoffman. Chief political correspondent for the Jerusalem Post. Gil Thank you so much for joining us. Being with your stuffy Israel just went through sixteen months without government or really just kind of a bare bones caretaker government. What did that mean practically for the state while Saffy it's been since December twenty fourth twenty eighteen? It's a long time to not have a fully functioning government to put into perspective. How long ago? That was number one movie in America. Time was people tend to not remember uncle very much and so During that time is now remained the Prime Minister. He was in charge of our security. Just like any other tire but the government was limited in the decisions. That could make a new police chief for instance. We couldn't make very big changes budgets even when there was a need very limited in what we could do in general ah garment is a good thing to have. It was a crazy time. I think for Israeli journalists As well with a big breaking news story seemingly coming up every day and lots of rumors being reported all the time as a leading Israeli political journalist yourself. How important do you think the media was to this year of elections the media ad plant influence of our politicians? And perhaps not enough. Because we not put enough pressure on the politicians to serve the people. Better they went to election after election after election because they thought that when are people wanted was for them to keep their promises to that. They thought to be a successful politician. You need to not lie. The truth is the opposite. We were waiting for them to lie. They were saying during the campaign. I will sit with this person. I will for government was him after the election. They were supposed to than admit. They're relying form governments. They didn't they didn't compromise. They kept promises only after the third election. The media may be corona virus. Have enough pressure on these politicians to finally admitted they were lying all along finally stock keeping their promises start compromising and that is why we have a government day you know. There's this interesting kind of political argument that makes the rounds and in certain niches in America. I don't I don't think it's a widely discussed thing that actually part of the reason why our government is so broken here is because of good government measures that got rid of smoke filled rooms. If you don't have those kind of smoke filled back rooms. Where people can you know out of the public I can come into those compromises and yes you know. Maybe betray their their voters a little bit but in the interest of moving the country forward and doing good things for the country compromising as you said then. You can't really govern effectively Israel known for a kind of culture of smoke-filled back rooms or is that not really you know part of the political culture in Israel absolutely I. The Labor Party is to run this country on its own make all its decisions by itself in the one party in the they ruled everything in everybody knew it and the they would make those decisions without really consulting the people and that's changed overtime. The Likud is in power. But it's not our most of the media the media much of it remains left wing and Anti Nazi Ya'll and that's not necessarily reflective of people according to the holes according to the votes you mentioned the the Labor Party which is basically the Party of David Victorian of Golden Meir Vizsla like robbing Shimon. Peres and really for the first thirty years of Israel's existence elections weren't suspenseful things. The Labor Party was going to win. It was only a question of you know which partners they might need to work with. As they govern the country that changed at the end of the nineteen seventies when when Menachem begging one and and brought Likud to power and Labour has kind of been on a downward trajectory ever since culminating now I think there are three members of Knesset from the Labor Party in this newest Canessa authentically labor right. So what does that mean? What does it mean for Israel? You know I'm someone who really appreciates the history but I guess is the question really about the present and the future. What does it mean for Israel that its founding party is in such dire straits so first of all it shows that the people who made up that the second Israel that the the masses the Sephardi immigrants from African Muslim countries took over in the nineteen seventies? They made bonds with religious. Adel doors and they were able to come to power and they have not fully come to power in everything yet. They're still illegal establishment that they're underrepresented initial the media that represented the pollsters. These are the people could run against. Say we will finally take our over them now. The Labor Party has suffered from leadership also from these processes that were not successful. Yvonne Them Accountable Florida since those peace processes nine hundred ninety s gave. Somebody a hope. We've had a suicide bombers shootings stabbings arriving rockets tearing tunnels and that can make people fear that the next thing that would fly over the border from Gaza is can it be away dust and that made people more skeptical more careful with their boats with security as a higher priority in less willing to take risks and that has led the Likud party and the right wing to be more powerful and yet that could be something a toward being a peace process again very soon with the whole proverbial of Nixon to go to China. Maybe it's Netanyau who even after all these years of borders Well I I WANNA come back to that border conversation in a minute but just staying on the parties you know. The new government is an interesting one in that it includes both the right wing Likud. And what's left or actually most of what's left of the left wing Labour Party. I guess two of the three Labor. Mk's have gone into the government plus blue and white that kind of main center left. Coalition Partner has several legitimately left wing figures. So we have this government that includes you know the right and the centre-left but it excludes the two most right wing parties Yamina and Ucla Tino and the two most left wing parties merits and the joint list so it spans the center but oddly it doesn't actually include the real centrist party yesh not so does this coalition of somewhat odd bedfellows. Tell us anything about the state of Israeli society. It says that Israel is not suffering through hyper polarization away. American auto elections have not been right wing versus left. Left-wing out with great Atta massively between the two like your current election is in certainly in the last one was in fact if anything in Israel be more consensus than we've ever had on key diplomatic issue security issues in economics. You will not find that in very big gap between the centre-right and centre-left on were draw. Fine lines on how to handle Iran and Syria insists Bella or even how to recover economies the virus. And because of that you're able to find parties will be able to work together to make things better but you also have a lot of personality politics that and that's why we've had elections where the major divide was to be or not to be with the over his shakespeare in comparison. That's something kind of hurt our political situation here it has been learned from America Coming back to what you said a moment ago. About how Prime Minister Netanyahu may set a permanent border for Israel at least from the Israeli perspective There's a great deal of concern in the. Us and Europe over potential Israeli plans to annex part of the West Bank now. Some of Prime Minister Netanyahu was closest observers like arts feffer who recently published a well regarded biography of Netanyahu. That from what they know of the man he will never actually go through those plans. They say that he is conservative. Not only in the political sense but he doesn't take big steps This would be unquestionably a big step. It's also not something he's ever really talked about in his career until about a year ago. He's not someone who at least publicly. You know in two thousand and nine when he was first starting this term two thousand thirteen when he was reelected to fifteen when he was reelected or an earlier terms in the ninety S. He's not someone who's kind of publicly fantasized about annexing parts of the West Bank. What are you say? Gil is annexation really in the cards. The astros absolutely because Netanyahu needs a legacy. And what did he talk about? All those years. All those elections you're talking about. He talked about Iran. Dr Bumper That's GonNa go on after he's gone now that's not going to be solved. He certainly isn't going to be the one who acts the Relations in Iran. Which would have been a legacy bagels? Legacy was that he destroyed the nuclear reactor in Iraq Olmert. What positive he has. His legacy is that he prevented. Syria from getting the area that later on would be taken over by Isis Netanyau his legacy ironically after not talking about it all those years will apparently ended up being diplomatic not security he will work together with Donald Trump because of a relationship that he has whether it'll be for the next five months the next five years and whatever donald trump allows him to do is what Netanyahu will want to be remembered for Last question the vision for this government this kind of odd rotational beast. Is that Prime Minister. Netanyahu will remain prime minister now for eighteen months through November of twenty twenty one and then Bennigan's will become Prime Minister. Sir For eighteen months. Prime Minister Netanyahu would then do another six months and then do the final six months rounding out the full four year term before elections it is exceedingly rare in Israeli politics. That government actually goes the full term. You know because there some kind of squabbling within coalition the Opposition exploits cracks and drives parties apart. And somehow the person who is serving as prime minister is left holding the bag realizing that they no longer have A majority of members of Knesset supporting them even in these early days of the new government. There are some little squabbles. Some little you issues popping up that are making. It seem like all is not necessarily right in paradise do you envision this government going the full four years for half the full four and a half years the way it was elected in Israel the year of another election separate four years after the previous one on the civil calendar the date is by the Jewish calendar ends up being the first week in November and yes. It is extremely rare that we have gotten there. A Lot will depend on its house. A legal cases His trial begins on Sunday. It's a big deal that a sitting prime minister under trial on corruption charges. The politicians can't bring Netanyau the trial can and we'll see probably a year and a half. The trial will still be continuing three cases. Hundreds of witnesses. GonNa take time the prime minister. Can you very good excuses? Like I'm busy governing. That could delay legal huric's but after that that other year and a half were supposed to rotational or gas Destiny's house advantage and then his goal is to win. He believes he's innocent right. Answer the if we're looking at Ben Ganz historical I compare him to his actually Beddis who Putin Putin ruled Russia. Any to leave for a little bit yet takeover while he really ran things behind the scenes and then they went through that political the loop all and couldn't came back that's how intends to do and unless he's really guilty and they find that up pretty quick that might be something that Well folks Someday soon please guide will be let out of our homes and We can all take advantage of some of Gill's insights few enjoyed.

"Welcome to business scale. Insights with Kimberly. Marie bonner. Listen for commentary interviews and information on how to grow your business for all the details. Contact business scale insights network dot com. So empire builders are you ready? Here's Kimberly Marie Bonner. Hello, empire builders and welcome back to another episode of business scale insights, and I have the honor of interviewing Julia Aquino Serano, who has spent twenty years in finance strategy and operations. You don't look at day over eighteen girlfriend. She has her bachelor's degree in finance and an MBA with a specialization in accounting. She also understands how to simplify the complexity of finance so we can utilize the power of our financial information and reports to both manage and build our businesses. I've brought Julia onto the show. I consider her a friend, but I also wanted her to share her expertise with the listening audience because I think financial industry is just a big area for business owners. That's just missing. I, I see it over and over again. It's gonna like groundhog day when I deal with the new client lake their basic pieces of their financial life of their businesses. Financial life that they don't understand. And I don't have an accounting background like you. And so I many times point them to their CPA, but unfortunately, there CPA's not like Julie. I wish I could clone you. So I'm trying to do that through this show. Many CPA's do not know how to teach these concepts or they don't care to teach these concepts. And hopefully you know this show for those who are listening, listen to part one because Julia goes over so many wonderful concepts financial concepts. And then also you can visit our website business Gill insights network dot com for a replay of the show. But before I go any further if people want to take a course from you, if they want to learn from you, they wanna follow you and be just become like, you know, just a follower devoted of Julia. How can they contact you? So I have a few Email addresses. Start with the main, too. So my consulting company all systems grow dot CO gives you formation about the consulting side. And then she defined dot com is my work workshops, retreats and coaching for women in on she defined calm. We actually have a really cool workshop going on right now called the zen of finance in. So if you go to she defined com type in zen, the workshop will come up, and you can take a look and see if it's something that you would enjoy. I highly highly highly encourage anyone who's listening to this broadcast to sign up for that. Although if you're a guy can you sign up for the him? Absolutely. Same everybody same concepts. I have to ask, because I know some guy was a kid, I'd do it to of course. But really I again I love my CPA's out there. But unfortunately, I have. I've not come across that many CPA's that teach their clients. So you're giving an invaluable service to everyone out there. And so, before we started recording, we were talking about this concept and you've talked about it with me. Many times of paying yourself. I if you're an entrepreneur of you're starting your own business paying yourself first. What's that? What's that all about? And why do you believe that so so passionately that that's very important? Sure. So I'm sure many listeners have or may have heard of the lean startup all kinds of books about bootstrapping, and, and we all start, you know, I have three companies we all start with really tight budgets and making sure that we can get the company off the ground. And I totally respect that in bleed that's necessary in an entrepreneurial environment. However, what happens with many entrepreneurs is if they have any money in the. Bank or any ability in the Bank to pay themselves to keep their their life running at some level, they won't pay themselves at all. And so what happens is everyone around them gets a paycheck, and they don't until such time as they quote can. But what happens is they keep hiring and keeping others. Never pay themselves to three years in their burnt out, and they're resentful in their done, or worse. They don't have any money in the Bank, but they can't pay themselves, and they're just so busy, keeping their head above water that they're throwing money out there to do everything that everyone's telling them to do instead of really looking at what paying themselves something even if it's small to begin with, and then utilizing the money that's coming in to obviously move the company forward. But if you don't pay yourself, something at some level, first of all, there's IRS implications. At some point. And you know, but really getting to the point that you value, what you're doing. You're working sixty. Seventy eighty hours a week. It's, it's very, very difficult. If you not get your company to a point that you can pay yourself something. Now, you can grow that something to the point that it makes sense. You don't have to take every penny out of the company, you need to reinvest, but really getting clear on not only what you wanna pay yourself. But then creating your sales plan to make sure that you can pay those around you and yourself create the sales goal from that place. It's so funny because in my experience, I've seen two types of business owners kind of like bipolar business owners on the one hand. They're the people who don't want to touch anything. They don't wanna give Alary. They're just petrified of that for whatever reason, and then the other people who are, greedy, is out. They don't care about really reinvesting in other than themselves and a car, and, you know, have you seen that kind I see it all the time on. Fortunately, and so, you know, you've talked to the, the business owner who doesn't want to take salary. One out of the people who are just like me me me. Me me. Offering. They're pilfering your own company. So neither business owner is going to be probably, I agree. And so you need to sort of meet in the middle. And I think in, in the first show we did talk about people that take everything to all the profit out, right? And that's dangerous. You have to reinvest in the company, so really it's understanding what you wanna get paid within reason what others around you need to get paid to do their jobs. Right. We need to operate the business and scale it. And then really start to decide what that looks like from a budget perspective and build your company that way. Absolutely absolutely. Well, and these issues also go to two concepts that you talk about in your courses being bankable, or is it lendable Lennon's, I'm sorry, Linda ble, and my Mansell. What are those concepts all about? Well, this is this is actually. A great conversation to be. And I'm sure you've run across this where entrepreneurs start making money and they start didn't have a positive bottom line, and then they're like, what I gotta pay taxes. So, so then they're like, well, I don't wanna be types. And so I'm gonna run some more stuff through here. So I don't show a profit. No, no. I I made a profit night. I made some money over here. But I'm gonna show that I didn't make a profit and so I didn't have to pay taxes. Well, guess what? They start growing two three years down the line. They go to a Bank to get financing in the banks. Like, will you never made any money then? No, I did. I did I made money. But I took it all. Now that doesn't work. It doesn't work. So you, you have to really your bottom line, your net income is so important to being lendable or financial and also cash flow. So again, remember, we talked about that net income of one hundred thousand dollars on your profit and loss from on the first show. But yet, you don't have any money in the Bank rate, your cash flows negative, because you're spending it on the balance sheet side, you have to pay attention to that as well, because the Bank doesn't just look at whether or not you have a positive net income rate, I made money, they also want to know that you have cash flow to cover the debt payments, and so you have to pay attention to how, and where you're spending your money and you have to strive to pay taxes. You have to strive to be profitable. So true. So true. Well, people think that they're getting away with it, and I can understand particularly in the early early early stages of a company, you don't want to people want avoid writing big checks. However, you know I've dealt with companies at been have been in existence for ten fifteen years. And, you know, I asked immediately to see I always no, it's not gonna go. Well, when I asked to see the PNL and the if if the business has been in existence for over ten years, and it takes it. I get well. Let

It's actually a team of organisations apart from the SBA number of banks chase Bank in particular. Has known to do this in him for women and preneurs and also do put together the SPA forums that are nationally televised such as the one they date in Boca Raton at the office staple headquarters way, the SBA administrator, then Maria Contreras sweet who opened the doors for a lot of female enterpreneurs in particular, and an example to mimic so other banks like mercantile Bank have are remarkable. And so is professional Bank in Miami. Total Bank sitting national Bank at have been amazing in furthering these type of programs that allow and Trump renews to get into the market with very little money down. Also, there's organizations like the greater for Lauderdale alliance. If you wanna do. Business in Broward County. That's the first Orgainzation that people should visit in order to put them in touch with organizations like score where you get a lot of advice from seasoned enterpreneurs that volunteers time to help people get in business and stay in business when they start in counting issues of that is the beginning of building a team around you the second team is actually more personal in family around you because as women honestly speaking, we work harder than men, so. It means that we are expected to be queens at home and do everything. Definitely it's hard. So based on that, you really need a village to raise children, and you are going to miss a lot of events family events birthday parties that you're going to be laid at performances for your kids. So please don't feel guilty about that. As a woman, you cannot have it all and something's gotta give occasionally don't feel guilty and just have other members of your family gathered around you and help out in those issues but coming back to the SBA administrators the current administration. Linda McMahon who visited us at the Boca location last week? She's remarkable enterpreneur and a business woman. She went skydiving this month on her seventieth birthday. So just to give you an idea how. She is. When I realize that she's her net equity worth is in the billions. I thought gee, maybe she inherited the money. That's not the case. She's a self made billionaire and she leaned over to me at one point when I ask are you aware of the issues blogging businesses today. And she said, you know, I went bankrupt a few times, don't you? So she says, I'm well aware of what all the business people are going through I explained that we have about two hundred and fifty people in our company that we employ currently, and therefore it's not that easy to navigate through that system and other systems today that we need to both through such us a CA compliance than regular regulatory issues. She was very sympathetic. She knew her stuff and she's taking a cop. Of the issues. We talk about back to Washington DC. Hopefully, we're gonna hear from her again into the great changes that need to happen. Still to help business people. I loved everything that you just shared on so many levels and thank you. And I want to reiterate it to make sure that everyone heard it you I talked about the banking institutions that assisted you you mentioned chase Bank, Merck mercantile, Bank, professional, Bank, and total Bank. Those were four you also mentioned the greater Fort Lauderdale alliance and score. If you're not in Broward County, you might not be able to take advantage of that. But you certainly can take advantage of score. I have score. I had the president of Broward County. The broadcast chapter of score in here score also had hosted some women women's based. Kind of conference and expo this past weekend. And they're in chapters all of the United States. So you definitely want to take advantage of that. And obviously the SBA in the leadership. There has been invaluable. I really want folks who are listening to this broadcast to recognize particularly female entrepreneurs you cannot do this alone. You really cannot do this alone. It may sound corny. When when when she said it takes a village. But it does take a village. You don't have the all the gifts. You don't have all the resources. You don't have all the you just can't. I mean, there's just no way unless you just want to stay small, and if you wanna stay small and not have an impact, and maybe you can do it on your own. But if you want to have a larger impact, and you want to scale, and this broadcast is called business scale insights, then you're really you really need to take to Hartwick Tula really just talked about as far as your resources. And the village Georgia's you have anything to add to that. Because I thought it was excellent. Well, okay. It is it's all in the team in helping each other and even on a professional or personal basis. Everyone needs a helping hand Absolut. Absolutely. Well, we don't have that much more to go on the show. But I do want to make sure that folks know about your future plans about how they can reach out to you or George or come by the diner and give you all of their money on. So. Take it away. Well, we recently participated at the international trade and culture convention to see if we can take flashback diner concept internationally to other countries other than the US and some other countries really love American concepts and product, so we're looking into that we had a great response and pretty soon we're going to be going just a small trip to Hong Kong to see what is there for us.

"You. I actually worked in a completely different field for for thirty thirty plus years and ten the past ten years. That was in my own business, but it was basically in what I call it Ebeling chains to large organizations through technology who I was involved with supercomputing with credit research, big data, data analytics with data. And then I started in rand my own company Kaufman SAIC for ten years where I was helping to bring do technologies in the big data space into the intelligence community. So my background had been and helping large bureaucratic organization to Broome new thing that allow them to improve emission. And so it's really about, and it's very similar to. Any kind of entrepreneurship where you're you have a concept of hell you're going to eliminate. Problems and overcome obstacles and enable do things to happen. So different Henley, different shading. What your your business position is between. So you look at disruptors like apple and tesla in his market. They did things dramatically different, correct? Yes. And so my my company and they intelligence community basically enable computing and some of the intelligence agencies. So we put the first cloud computer in that space. And if I look at sort of that continuum, I believe that plant based eating is a competitive asset for company day John half earlier because it helps decrease their medical costs, improve productivity. And it provides a strategic advantage for their employees wellbeing. So companies. And if you look at we work, which is a nine billion dollar company, I think they just made an announcement maybe two months ago that they were gonna promote plant based eating. They were lender tanks for be products through their their organization. So you see, we're gonna like that that are starting not pass. I think whole foods and several other companies, British Aerospace, engineering Hayes, hundreds of dollars off their employees, medical bills. Our medical insurance. If people have a whole BMI healthy cholesterol and they don't smoke, they exercise. So if you're gonna plant based by the healthy and you're going to reduce your your medical costs because your health will boss, well, I unfortunately have to jump in for a break, but when we come back when I love this idea that green fair, organic cafe is a disruptor right of an industry and that count. That's your. That's your background. So let's go into more of a deep dive and explore that concept and how you're disrupting the food industry in restaurants and all that good stuff when we come back. Okay. Sounds good. All right. If you already have a proven business model but have concerns about the best way to grow and scale, then you should contact the experts at new day consulting systems.

Your host of business Gill insights, and we are celebrating national women's small business month with Gwen Whitaker. She is the CEO of green, fair organic cafe. And before we came or left for the break, she was talking about how she has envisioned green fair organic cafe as kind of a disruptor in the restaurant space. So when are you still? There are? Yes. Can you just take a little bit more of a deep dive and talk about what you see presently kind of in the food industry in the restaurant space and how you perceive green fair kind of making an impact in disrupting that space? A little bit. If you think about tesla and the success that tesla had is that they're not a car company actually an IT company. So it's heck -nology company that's gotten into autumn motive business? Yes, we're the same in that we're not. We're not a restaurant, but we're actually focused on enabling a transition of capability into this space by knowledge in education. So when you read the simple, the Washington Post, they have a section in the newspaper and health, the section on food and they're this sprit. But if you think that you combine this two things that the whole food as medicine and medicine, food concept is basically what we're trying to enable. So it's. Getting people to radically rethink their food by. I think people today are less inclined to take pills when something goes wrong and more for the root cause. Yes. If a doctor tells you your cholesterol high and you made about occasion instead of taking a pill, that's going to cost a lot of money, and it may be something that will have to be all the rest of your life. It's changing your diet to basically ticks the problem instead of covering it up. Sometimes I talked about. Taking a pill is like taking having a car with a noise. Engine noise problem that you take your car mechanic and the cat, it gives you your plugs. You won't hear the. So it's you're missing the opportunity of fixed engine. So what we're doing is trying to help people to make that connection. And what we found is people will say sometimes styles of dollars in life insurance cut us when

Eleven point, six million. That's the number of women owned businesses in the United States. Eight hundred twenty five women owned businesses are started each and every day two point. Five. That's the that's the number times the national average. The number of women owned businesses growing two point five times the national average. Here's another data point. The annual revenue of women owned businesses in the US has one point, nine trillion. Can you believe that fifteen percent of all employee's work at a woman own company and two hundred eighty billion dollars as the annual payroll of women owned businesses? So this is one of the. These are some of the reasons why we're focused on business skill insights this month on women, female entrepreneurship and women on businesses. And today I have with me Gwen Whitaker, who is the CEO of green fair organic cafe that is based outside of the Washington DC metro area and a city called Herndon Virginia. And I have her. On the on the broadcast today for a couple of reasons. Number one, obviously she has a a restaurant concept and obviously she owns it and believe it or not. The number of restaurant concepts that are women owned businesses in America is really seeing a very steady increase. So that's one reason she's in this nice category. And then the other part is that she owns a very unique restaurant. The tagline for green fair is healthy people healthy planet. And so when are you there? I am. I would like you to just kind of introduce yourself to the listening audience. Tell them more about yourself, your background, and how did you come up with this? Very unusual unique niche brand called green, fair, organic, cafe or relief. Thanks for having me on the program could be able to chat with your. Sner. So green fear is a concept of being an educational restaurant. And what I like to do is talk about how we not only allow people to come in and experience. Awesome food, but also learn more about with optimal health is based on the scientific research that's been shown to influence people in their promotion on jeopardy, and not only living while we're also living better than we allow people to come down and enjoy a great meal. We have a survey of books on health and wellness. The environment, compassion, we have speakers that come in and do lectures. We do dinner and a movie concept where we so documentaries that are on this topics to try and promote a community of people that share similar interests. And every month we do program called kickstart. That's that's when one day program where people actually take classes and get food for twenty one days, then they get lunch dinner. So while they're sorta going through this transition from a standard about in diet plant based nutrition, they're not having to shop or cook. They're just learning why they're doing it. And then we teach them how to do it on their own. Now, when I first visited your restaurant concept, I wanna say maybe a year and a half or even my maybe two years. Now ago I was really struck by just how different it is on multiple levels. Your focus on healthy eating is just one aspect of it. This kick start program is another component of it. And this idea of a educational restaurant which is very, very unique and innovative in my opinion. Now I have to ask the question, and I'm sure a lot of our listening audience is asking this question. How did you get to this point? Like what is your background? Are you a dietitian by training? Have you been a healthy eater, all your life, and this was a natural kind of metamorphosis for for you. So tell us a little bit about your background when and how you got to this point. A serial entrepreneur. Second second business, I actually an electrical engineer from Virginia Tech, go hokey. I'm a, I'm a, I'm a Cavalier's. We've got problems. I forgive you.

"But you know, and what happened happened in how I ended up here is because by self publishing, we had immerse ourselves in social media. That's how we were going to get the marketing for the book. I hit Twitter heavy. I had been on Twitter for about three years by then it was two thousand eleven, two thousand twelve and ebony found me from might sweets and I was hooked on social media from them because it's like every magazine like that's on my grandmother's coffee. Growing. No, I'm a sold on social media. We talked a little bit off air about, you know, some people don't like social media. I love social media because social media has enabled me to meeting credible people including like you as we met through promoting my absolutely absolute- and I think it's a great platform. So with that, helping women get access to social media, get access to the types of events that I was going to spawned. Her power moves her power movement, her power hustle. The podcast that I had. Oh, wow, that is a great story. Well, I have to go to a break, but when we come back, talk to me about literally her power moves. Absolutely. What is that whole concept about? And if someone was to come to one of your power move, moves events. Just take us into that experience. What is it like and what are they going to take from it? So we will be right back after this break.

One more new day consulting systems dot com to get your business off the ground and into orphaned contact new day to day. And we are back. I am Kim Boehner host of business Gill insights, and we're talking about all things related to national women's small business month. And my headliner for this month is Michelle Talbert who is the founder of her power moves. And before we went to the break, I wanna Michelle talk about her power MOS. What is this? What are your Vince about, take the listening audience there for me absolately. Thank you so much. Her power moves is is grounded right now here in Broward because what I found was that we had this amazing community of women who are sort of all over the place and not fully connected to one another, and we would pump each and go down to date and run into each other at different events. And they've wasn't sort of a place where we could come together and get together and share resources and connect. And the tagline for her power moves is where women connect. Collaborate and create cashflow, unapologetically beautiful of that. So we do a lot online and that's valuable. As I said, I love social media. However, to be able to come together as women into a space that safe where we can share when you're an entrepreneur, you feel very isolated often. And so to be able to come and find out, people have the same issues or at least issue adjacent issues, and you feel like you're not so alone. So the goal with her power moves is to bring women together to number one connecting away. Unlike you set, like you said, unlike any other networking event, this is not about putting on name tags or handing out business cards. This is about saying, hey, sister, I see you. I applaud you might want to buy from you. I might have someone else who wants to buy from you. How can we connect? How can we grow? How can we share resources? And that's that's the entire ethos of her power moves it. One of the things that was so amazing was. People felt safe, right? And having been around business for a while, you know, when you're swimming swimming with sharks, and there may have been many sharks in that room, but you have created such a safe environment that even amongst the shark. Women were very open and free to talk about their past to talk about their stories, some of them shared experiences of domestic violence. Actually, I wanna say to women, right one of your close friends from high school actually came, and then there was a woman at the table with me who shared the same story, and I'm sure that is you recognize that that's very unusual to happen at a networking event for people to

"Advertisement is not an offer to sell a franchise that offer can only be made through our franchise disclosure document. And we are back. I'm your host, Kim Bonna with business skill insights, and we are talking about everything related to international business and international trade with Commissioner wholeness, Broward County Commissioner wholeness, and Pola Isaac Berea, and they are talking about the big trade event which is Fizi conference and expo that's coming up in October. But before we get to that, I wanted them to explain this whole concept of a trade mission and the gold key program because many people like me, I didn't know anything about this kind of thing and these programs until I attended an event recently. So explain definitely let me make it easy. Everything's start would becoming export ready. So before you even look at a trade mission, which I'm going to explain what a trade mission is. The first thing you want to know is an my well-versed enough into exporting. So we are kind of the beginning of the chain are the office of economic and small business business come to us. They get the training on how to. Export, then we tell them, okay, now that you're ready to export. Now you can work with the partners, which is the state of Florida enterprise Loda and with the federal program with the US commercial service. Now, the state of Florida offers certain trade grants. There's a trade grand on how to do your export plan. There's a trade Granddad covers the cost of the goal. Kita, we explain in part one to go on a trade mission. So in might sound Chinese people right now, but they need to come to our office. So we, I train them in becoming expert running part of the training that we educate them in those trade grants and programs that they take. They can take advantage of because of course, like any programs are some requirements behind it, but we educate them in that matter. Then once you're export ready, would y do now? Okay. Now you can go on a trade mission. Okay. So what's a trade mission trade mission? We call them outbound trade mission. We go along and typically it has more of a power if we go along. With the state and the governor. So we go the whole state of Florida. We go it into price, Florida for not. It's not a rental car into price, learn the official economic development organization or the state of Florida. So they organize these outbound trade mission that bird county in the commissioners participating our mayor ourselves, and we bring along bird businesses, and we make the ready and we go with them and we make take advantage of the opportunities when we arrive in the country, we open doors with the governments. There. We open doors with the major chambers of commerce. We try to identify the opportunities. Some of them are already in this gold key program that we mentioned before, so they can go as a gold key participant. That's a matchmaking program with your dream customer. So if you qualify for the program, you can participate in that while you're on a trade mission and you could be matched one, oh one with potential customers. But definitely you have to be export ready. And you have to fulfill certain requirements to be part of that program. Secondly, you can also go just as a delegate like that. That company that came with us, the IT company, he was a delegate. It wasn't doing the gold key, but still he was able to open the IT market, the telecom market in the area we were in in Columbia, and sprint gave him the attorney to become the official partner there. So even if you're coming as a delegate, and you can't take part of the gold key, you're still going to benefit tremendously on these outbound trade missions. But the county works a lot in terms of imbalan- trade missions. And that's why feet say, we're bringing all our contacts from around the world, those two days. That's what everybody it doesn't cost money to travel. You're already here and the county and the free of vent. So what are you waiting for bringing you all the context we met on all the tree mission. This is your time to be in front of them to meet these buyer. They don't feel the requirements of a gold. You just. Have to show up and be open minded even if you don't have a business yet this show up, no, that they're looking to buy this in in what the mullahs and then come back to the office and we'll train you how to start your business and how to export about how many nations are going to be represented. Fifty countries fifty. And I think we're going to surpass that because last year we had fifty. And now we have some new countries like Bangladesh and. No, you're so is a huge development that is underway in Central America. It is a infrastructural building us with technology with roadways with airports seaports with IT the hundred billion dollars that's going to be showcased at at this year also. So you can think of all the things that go around the hundred billion dollar spending that could occur. We have from Guatemala in Nicio Cerezo who's a former president there, and he's going to be really talking about that. We have from Panama former President Nicolas are dito from the from the the Congo we have prime minister Brunel to sh- Bala and the mayor of from Brazil. So.

So am fire builders? Are you ready? Here's Kimberly. Vaughn. Hello? Hello? Hello, and welcome. Empire-builders to business Gill insights. I'm your host, Kimberly, Bonner, and I'm so excited for part two of an interview that I'm doing with Broward County Commissioner deal wholeness and poa Isaac, Brian. And we were talking about all things international trade and international business for Broward County, and also small business owners entrepreneurs. And this is part two of that interview. And I wanted to lead off with this particular segment with a statistic that kind of shocked me. And that's the tick is one in eight jobs in Florida is directly related to international trade. Okay. So I know we've we're hearing a lot of things in our politics, some of its correct some of his incorrect. I'm a data nerd. I love to me two plus two equals four. It doesn't equal four five twenty nine and a thousand. And so one one in eight jobs in Florida is directly related to trade. So that means there is a benefit to international trade that is tangible for the citizens of Florida. Correct. Go ahead. Eleven thousand people work at port Everglades say that again more than eleven thousand people work at port Everglades. Wow. And in jobs in international trade is pays more than the average. Okay. That's another big statistic. Why is that? Well. It's the value that is added in terms of folks coming in working at the port. For example, along shore, man, eilly blue-collar labor. They can make a hundred thousand dollars a year working those forklift over there at at the port. That's that's a good amount of money. My father got, I've got a great story. My dad was a nerd. He was a teacher. He actually officially became the deputy superintendent of Broward County schools. He's passed away. But when he came from North Carolina people laughed at him because back then like in the late fifties and sixties. I mean, teachers were making nothing and he was in the army and he had gotten a degree and they his friends are just laughing them. Why don't you just work at the port. We're making three to four times the amount that you're making as a classroom teacher and he's like, I agree, but this is my passion direct experience for you. Absolutely understand that clearly that it's important that we that we do international business, and my focus in my emphasis is how we sell more of a goods and services. Now, a lot of people think that you got to sell a thing self service. Also, you can sell construction management services. You can sell legal services. You can sell architectural engineering services though. That's not a thing. Now you get into high level high-skill work that pays a lot of money to to to folks. So it is not just what comes off the ship. It's what you can export from a high level technical support system to the rest of the world, and nobody does it better than we do. We have the most educated were. Workforce when it comes to tech building roads, Bill and bridges, China can compete with us we, we wrote the script on that, so we have to look at all these other things, and we're working to Bill Brown county as the center for international business are Florida and why it is Florida's international trade and cultural expo. If IT see exposed dot com where you can get more information and register is precisely that we want this to be an event that is international internationally recognized as the place to come to connect to the world to do business, and we're working on a lot of stuff. Paulo will tell you about of things we're working on with made in Britain, come in here and we'll treat center. Let's talk about the World Trade Center concept and and we were talking about that before we went on air. Let's take deep dive with that vision and making that vision reality Broward County. Okay. Well, it's a vision. That starting to fold into reality because with feet say with this event that we have going on, we have people that he came from the UK and they won't open a made in Britain Trade Center here in Bartow county where people that that are coming from Italy, and they want open a Trade Center for Italy expo Italy. So what we are seeing and this is led by the private sector, it's not us, but we're seeing that we can have an area dedicated to world trade because of our strategic geographic region. There's not many place in denies that have a port an airport, less than five minutes away. We have only one traffic light between port Everglades and California. We have all the tools year to assist us businesses to go global. So that's what the world is. Recognizing people calling from the UK somebody from Argentina call me the other day. They're like, we saw this on our desk feed, say, we need to be there. They're starting to recognize this area and the potential that it has. So this. Has what we're trying to envision, and we want to offer all our technical assistance at our office offers into this world trade area. One day we'll be developing. So there are small business or local business can tap into this and ensure that China's not comfy out competing us in the rest of the world as they are today there the build a major resort in Bahamas. Three plus billion dollars was just having conversation about this with someone who is a major player. Yeah, and and and and required Chinese architects, engineer materials from China. The labor force was from China. We need to ensure that we're looking in capturing these opportunities, and here's a sad tale. We're going to go to the Bahamas and stay in this resort and paid a Chinese money absolute. We should be the one building and taking the money back in. All right. So we need to make sure that government. Private-sector Lennon institutions are connected to make sure that we're selling more or good or service. So weaking continue to enjoy Greek quality of life that we've come to know. I have to go to a break when we come back from the break. I want you both to discuss how a small business owner or an entrepreneur talk to them about how this will practically work for them because I'm sure that's what they're thinking. I love the vision, but how is this going to put some food on my table? So when we come back from the break, let's talk about that.

I'm your host, Kimberly, Bonner, and I'm talking to Michael, the young, the executive director of the believes American Chamber of commerce, and he was just describing really what the chamber of commerce does and how it facilitates business transactions in the kind of businesses they're looking to work with. So go here. Okay, great. So what we have we looking for there's three pillars that we stand on. We stand on tourism, renewable energy, that's a mandate of the government and also investments and agriculture, but shifting back to the investment. So for it can be in real estate as the prime, the prime target that we go after. So real estate developers believes has. I think it was over a million visitors or five hundred thousand to a million visitors in a year, and we only have about five thousand beds. While so there's a lot of room for growth. So the so to just to make sure that I'm hearing you right, and the listeners are hearing, you're right. You are looking to facilitate relationships with competent well experience. We real estate developers who have a track record and the United States maybe who've done some great work in other nations and who have some kind of prototype, and they can come to Belise and do some great work with within your country. That is correct. Like for example, we just got a couple brands, hotel brands, Marriott Hilton, that just agreed to build in Belise for seasons. Congratulations. Yeah. So we also have the developers of the Atlantis in the Bahamas who looking at. So that's. That's great. So you know, that's what we do. We help to facilitate those with proven track records and so forth because we gotta dance k. to do diligence and all of that good stuff is, you know, especially with the times now and you know, we have. Saying and believes when America sneezes believes catches a cold. So what happens is that we abide by US standards and international standards while while not compromising our own constitution and believes and so forth. So it's a balancing act. But what we do is we helped facilitate those types of interested parties, developers and so forth into the country and create jobs, economic growth, both ways, if you if some really powerhouse, real estate developer were to come to you right now and say, I love the vision. I visited believes I love it, and we're thinking about opening up a hotel and entertainment site. What kind of timeframe are you looking for looking at just the whole can go just in general, like three to five years. Okay. Yeah. And we liked to be upfront and honest in terms of our. Coach, realistic and practical. So as you've mentioned or suggested that three to five years would be would be realistic because I mean, it'll take you some time to actually put a stake in the ground. And then from there you've got to build relationships on the ground and you know, so three to five years. Good. Which is a great segue, and I know I'm putting folks, you know folks that why are you selling me this just now surely, but unfortunately, or fortunately, Michael is hosting or believes is hosting a trade mission. That's happening that starting tomorrow, where recording this on a Wednesday is starting on Thursday, September thirteen, correct. So, and it goes until Monday. So this show airs on Saturday. Okay. So. If there's a real estate developer out there who listens to this show, how long are you going to still be there until or you going to be in believes for longer than just Monday? No, no, we might. My life is is primarily here. So we we go back and I go back and forth. However we trade missions, third annual thirty year. Terrific. Okay, and great things about it. All. Thank you. I'm glad to hear that. So we do it in conjunction with the local chamber in believes who puts on their annual business expo and that's been around for twenty years, twenty plus years. So our trade mission flies into the expo that happens on the on the third weekend, second or third week of September our our independence month and where you get to showcase believes in business and feel and look and touch and interact network with those in the country. So. We put our trade. We strategically put our trade mission in conjunction with the local chamber expo. Thank you very much. Brilliant idea. So you know, and then and then on Sunday, they get to relax. Enjoy the country. So you are trade mission, our annual trade mission, you can visit our website or find us on Facebook at believe, American Chamber or Email us at info at believes American Chamber organ, our officers will follow up.

So how can they contact you directly will they will the because I'm tugged in so many different directions. They would just Email our offices, and then our office would actually get in contact with me and then we would set up a conference call and take it from there l. k. well, thank you so much, Michael. This has been such an eye opener for me. I've learned so much about Belise the the whole notion of international chambers of commerce and also this trade mission. I think it's a great opportunity.

As those of you who are regular listeners to this podcast and radio show, you know that business skill insights is all about moving from startup to scale up. Unfortunately, a lot of small businesses do not take advantage of the opportunities for international investment international expansion international trade, and we want to like change the mindset and so we're going to start off with our. I kind of international focused show with Michael d young, Michael is the executive direct. Sector of the Belise American Chamber of commerce for those of you who may not know much about business skill inside the podcast, we are based in south Florida and south Florida. I kid all of my friends around the country and around the world that south, Florida's not is kinda like as the capital Latin America to capital of of south and Central America and people laughing. I'm like, no seriously. There's a lot of business to be done. So I've made these wonderful connections and Michael agreed to come on the show, and thanks for coming with things for having me and two things. One, I love the intro of empire-builders. Last for aspiring employer Villers and we feel privileged honored that you selected us to be the first international aspect of your shows. You so much. Like I believe like recognizes like I really won't for had our first conversation your mindset. I talk about that a lot with my clients I talk. I've talked about it on this podcast, many times, but mindset is everything. And so when we had our first conversation as like. I like what I'm hearing, and I like your vision for not just believes, but just connecting people an industry and business. And really it's just a great progressive mindset. So that's your here. Oh, thank you very much and we really appreciate it. And you know, I have to give a homage to those before me and you know, in our country, there's a saying, you learned two ways you learned from people, or you learned through pain. And. Could have, especially with the pain part. But I've, I've been privileged to learn from both and our family background. My grandfather was a attorney and a judge, and he pulled himself up by the bootstraps being a clerk with the government and then went to England. And you know, had seven kids in one of which was my father, and my father was the one who actually became an attorney as well. And so he was born in England. So my father became an attorney and growing up in a lawyer's household as you can imagine thing. So he was, he turned out to, you know, forty years later into his career. He turned out to be legal counsel to the current administration that's in power there in power, three consecutive term. So it gave me a back door to to to a lot of the the real stuff that happened. So been privileged from family. I can go on and on with that. And then of course. The the fall downs, you know, and getting back up and trusting the process and sticking to your guns in once it's placed in your spirit, believe in yourself and you know, persevere push forward when you hear. No, you know, UK. Okay. You try to recalibrate refigure and see how as long as it's for the greater good, you know, song as positive, well, you, you gave him, you're giving us a little bit of a background. We are personal background tells more about your professional background, kind of your business. You have your seems like you have an investment background business background and how all of that kind of merged into your involvement with the believes American Chamber. Well is very interesting and unique story because you know coming from the Caribbean. So I was born in Belize and tempered in Florida. So I spent half my life in Belize and then learn. Learn the ropes of this wonderful country USA here in the in our great state of Florida. So you know. So you know, having learning from both perspectives from both pythons is was interested in unique and you know, I started out following in the footsteps following the legacy in the in the legal field, but I realized early out that I was more of on the business side international business brokering, different relationships, facilitating and so forth. So my education has has prepared me for that where you know, I have a couple of masters one and international law and a business background, and you know, worked for some fortune five hundred companies here in south Florida. So learned the ropes here at had. I had a professional experience in believes as well, especially working in my father's law firm. We passed away recently by the way, but what what happened is that from that? Because I had strong spirit towards the homeland and so forth, but connected and the identity, you know it. Like I said, it was placed in my spirit. And what we did was we realized, you know, having met with different agencies here in south Florida, one of which is enterprise Florida. We realized that our country did not have a chamber of commerce. We have kung slits which we work with, but we don't have a chamber of commerce in on US soil. So I took the idea to my father who's legal counsel at the time, and he did his due-diligence and you know, checked with the higher ups and see if it's okay, we got the, we got the go-ahead. We started at five zero five. Years ago or in our fifth year as an NGO. We work closely with the ministry of any economic development and beliefs along with a strategic partnership with our local chamber, the beliefs, chamber of commerce and industry, which in fact, is almost three times older than the country itself. It's an interesting fact the chamber of commerce in believes ninety eight and our country is turning thirty seven and a couple of weeks. And and that comes from our background of being a British colony former British colony. So you know, so we tied up both ends between public and private and five years later. We've had some successes continuing to push for bilateral trade hassle both ways, and we just opened up in Houston, so wonderful. Well, we have to go to a quick break, but when we come back, I wanna talk more about. Out beliefs because I'm sure there are people who are listening or like Belise, whereas beliefs, what is beliefs? Tell me more. Take us to believe, takes us there. Tell us what the industries are, what the people are like. So we get a flavor of the country will be right back.

"Only be made through our franchise disclosure document. And we're back this business Gill insights. I'm your host Kim, Bonner and I am with Russell Thomson of the Broward score chapter. He's the chairman and we've been talking about everything related to the resources at scored, help small businesses grow and possibly expand and scale. And so I wanted to start this last segment discussing scale because this is the business scale insights broadcast, and I would be remiss if we didn't have some kind of discussion about really what are the, what are the keys to helping a small business go from that startup phase to really scaling and growing kind of an exponential manner. When I think of scaling, I think exactly what you said, exponential growth, rapid quick growth. A business also has to just grow, right? You can just have some natural growth or Ganic growth. Or some planned growth scaling is a little bit different than that. I as an example. Let's let's use Mindy who I said earlier called and asked for some additional meant mentoring, she's in business. We do the one on one mentoring, but we also do like consulting services for people for free where we come out and we put a team together, marketing person, financial person, operational person, and will come out and work with you on a particular issue. She wanted to scale. She wanted to grow and grow rapidly. She was for many, many years. I mean, like fifteen years, she taught swimming lessons to very little children and her and maybe two other people that worked with her. They would go out and Keach people how to how little children how to swim they market. Right. So what we worked with her on. Was she wanted to her first idea was franchising, but that didn't quite work. So what we did was a grievance like, yeah, like a distributorship where she would sell her concept of somebody, teach them how to do it and get a price, a. Price for selling the concept and then a like a royalty different than of franchising sheet. It's not an actual franchise agreement and she's been able to get some rapid growth doing that. And as I said, the reason she wanted me back because she's looking for getting some additional financing Akers. She's now in Chicago. She setting people up in Chicago, teaching people how to teach children to swim. That is absolutely wonderful. So how did she go? She? Does she have many distributor kind of relationships in Florida and then it just leapfrog to Iago? Yes. The first ones we started were in in Florida here, and once she got all the bugs worked out and she knew exactly how to do it. And she had a like a business plan off the shelf to give them to tell them how to advertise, where to advertise, how to conduct the classes, how much charge. For the classes. So it's kind of a turnkey operation for people when they come on board and it's been very successful. She's she's very good at it and she's very good at teaching. And so she goes and teaches the people when the at the start up and it's been been very successful and it's not a franchise now is very expensive. It is, and that's what she I wanted to do. That's what she I wanted to do, but it turned out not to be practical for for her budget. Right? So we did this other way of doing it and she's been growing growing quite a bit. So there's that and then they're scaling in a sense. We have another Menti that we're working with. He's developing an app. Okay. And it's for what's the last mile delivery? Like if you get a Domino's pizza, you can look on your phone and you can see the pizza coming down the street on the map. It's quite last mile delivery and that cost. Domino's franchise company like seven cents to the app developer to provide you that service of knowing when your pizza was going to be delivered. So he has a, he has a service like that where if you own a flower shop, you could buy his service so that when people buy your flowers, they can log in and know exactly when those flowers are going to be delivered. They can actually see them delivered brilliant, have a photograph taken of him sitting at the door and that gets emailed to the customer and the flower shop pays seven cents each seven cents. How do you make money on seven cents? Well, you have two million. Basically seven cents. And. And that's that's what the the way I think of scaling as opposed to just naturally growing now. Absolutely. So each of these individual examples, they came to you at score and you help them navigate those two different models? Yes, the the app gentleman, he was just having difficulty trying to figure out how do I scale he had at working here locally, and he was using Google ad words, and he was trying all these crazy ways of finding customers. And I told him while you tell me how much you spend on Google ad words, how many customers do you get? And if we can come up with a formula and say that if an investor, an angel investor, an investor spends a hundred thousand dollars, you will develop x. amount of business that's then easy to sell that type of. To an investor because it's proven, you just have a formula you shut. Look. If I spend thousand dollars in advertising, I get x. number customers, absolutely. Off a hundred thousand dollars I get on. I get so many ten times more customers, easy to demonstrate the scale ability of the operation. Well, this is exciting to hear, and for those of you who are listing, I'm sure bells are ringing and and light bulbs going off in your mind, and you're thinking to yourself, how can I get in contact with his brilliant man who's just giving all these words of wisdom? So Russell before we leave, I want you to tell people how they can get in contact with you and also plug whatever events that are going on with Broward score the next few months or. Right. Well, the big event is our women's conference, October twentieth we're going to have a business women's business conference in Fort Lauderdale. So all you have to do is go to our website Broward dot SK. Score dot org. You could find our workshop calendar. You can sign up for one on one mentoring. You can sign up for that counseling that a consulting where we come out to your existing business and work out any issues, but it's all done through the website. That's how you contact us.

I'm talking with the founder and CEO of gym guys, franchise system, Josh York. And he was just telling me about the whole concept of gym guys in how it's really flipped the fitness model, the traditional fitness model taking fitness to the people. So Josh, can you talk more about that. Absolutely. So so kind of take a step back, you know, when you know when I started this, really how it will happen was I graduated college, my bachelor's degree. I was never into school. It was never my thing, but I always love helping people. But at the end of the day, you know, the biggest challenge for trainers in general is they wanna clone themselves, but they can't. And you know, I got a job sorta working for nine to five and the marketing firm working for a boss and you never wanna work for a boss. You want to be a leader. The number one most important thing is culture strategy for breakfast. I'll tell you that right now if you don't wanna still culture and you guys can visit our website gym guys dot com. Go to our YouTube channel. We've spoofed Taylor swift videos that gotten over three million views a week. We, we make our own music. Everything we do is different. Everything we do is disruptive and what back in the fitness, because it's what I love. And one day one of my client at the time, Josh wishing and come to my house, I just don't have any Queant and that stuck with me all day and boom, that's that's one Jim. Guys was formed and you know the greatest thing about what we do is we can literally come anywhere and we bring a van loaded with three hundred sixty five pieces of Queant. I like to break down one Free State of the year, and we work with everyone from young children to seniors. We have actually, we have a senior onboard right now. One hundred and one years old I kid you not. They complaint for six minutes. I don't know if you're familiar with a plank is almost like sitting in is almost like an approach physician, but you're resting on your forearms instead of your hands, six minutes. This is what we do, and it's and it's fantastic, and it's very exciting when you can actually, you know, when you when you connect passion, you know with obviously a career, that's what's powerful because I look, I love Mondays. I also love Tuesday's, Wednesday, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. But you gotta love every day. You know, most people most people can. They try to work committing spiritual suicide daily basis. One of those job? Yeah. At the clocks what people don't understand. Also, Josh, and I'm sure you see a good number of this when you are hating what you do and committing spiritual suicide. I love that. I love. I'm going to actually take that term from you. It affects your health. And so I I had like a health crisis before I before I was out of my thirties and another health crisis. When I was in mind before I got out of, I'm sorry, my twenties in my thirties. So I had to in a very young age and it reoriented me completely because when you really aren't living, you know your purpose or whatever you want to enjoying your life. It has an impact. It really does have an back, but I wanna challenge you Josh, because when we first had our conversation, it blew my mind because I actually as a young person, I was in the fitness industry group and south Florida, which is like a fitness. This radio show is broadcast. And south Florida. So this is going to get a lot of traction with a lot of people in this particular demographic this this audience. So I grew up in the fitness space and one of the reasons why I really enjoyed going well working out was the social aspect of it. And so when I first heard of gym guys, when I I told you this, I challenged you on the phone. I was like, I, I don't get it. I really, I really, I'm social and I need when I when I work out, I wanna hang out with my friends. And then you push back on me and you said what. Listen, you can work out with your friends. We do lots of group sessions buddy sessions sessions in the park on the beach. Listen, we still have clients. I go to the gym and it's okay, but you can make this a social experiences. Well, the thing is we provide our three CS convenient, customize and creative. That's what we're bringing to you. We're bringing a convenient workout anywhere you guys wanna have poor out. We'll make it happen. We'll turn on the best tunes. You've ever listened to your life of your choice. We'll get into pool. You'll have a good time. We have challenges.

"And we are back. This is business Gill insights with Kimberly Bonner, and I am talking with the CEO of regal maid service franchise system. JoAnne Holland Drake join, are you there? I'm here. Wonderful. And when we left for for the break, I wanted you to talk about really how you became one of the most successful franchisees within the entire regal maid service system because that's an incredible story because you came over to the United States from England, and you started the franchise in the in the Virginia area outside of Washington DC in the midst of the great recession, and that's a really powerful story. So can you tell us more about that. Absolutely. An unions recession would hate when we found. Plumbing on our part. But they the one thing that I as I don't know whether the Britishness is are are just our personalities, but we had work as an out muster from day. One was failure is not an option. We'd give a heart and soul was in this business and in this move and we were going to make it work. No matter walled. I, we surely did. And Mike, you said came, we became one of the most what we are the most successful within the the system, which which is a huge itchy even and something that we're extremely proud of. One of one of the reasons that we actually invested into a franchise was the fact that you have support and you also had a business model to work to. And I've got to say that if I was gonna put something that the top of the list of an hard work, it would be the fact that we followed the business model, and I know that other officers who haven't been a success. Decibel of deviated from that in deviated from the plan, and then wonder why. We really stoked to we. We did it by the book. You know, we followed the leader of of the of the franchise all the time of how they'd grown that business to be so successful. And I'm not. I'm not another reason why a franchise system is a great way to invest when you stopped in business and become a known brand, but really going back to like the secrets of our success in the hard work and failures, nothing option. One of the key things that you need in this industry is communication skills, both, Tim, and I, even though we have the accent and and people found, hey, Bhave to under- some than me, he's great by text message. He we communicate with customers. I'm that is the key, you know. And we talked to the customers and they tell us things and we write it down. We remember it. We start to give to the goals that clean the house as an as k we, you know, you may not be the best cleaning company out there all the best comic comic. But if you talk to your customers and understand they need and they want that it's invaluable. And they tell people that how we when we grew up business through referrals, which is perfect because it's the cheapest form of advertising is free. So you know, I feel like I, I opened the business hundred years ago when there was no social media for people to communicate because that seems to be the way that people talk these days. The wasn't any social media. So we had a website. We went out. Network, which again was one of the key ways that we grew up business. We made connections within the community and give back to the community. So we helped. We didn't have the money to be able to, you know, make thousands of dollars donation, but we went and cleaned up after a local fall festival. And we were t shirts that said Riegel Mets vs on them. So we were giving our time and our energy to grow the business. No, no money is right. What are you being sorry? I didn't want. I just wanted to say this because I've, I've known you for a few years now and I've actually used your services not just worked with you, but of used your services. And one of the things that I can say is that you know you do. You don't just talk the talk, you actually walk the walk and you care about your customers. And so I was in the middle of my move and I communicated to you, and then you had me communicate to your the manager of your office going back to the communication part and not only did she communicate me before the clean..

"Only be made through our franchise disclosure document. And we are back and I am. This is Kim Bonner with business Gill insights, and I'm having an interview with the lovely tie young of during young media group, and she is really just sharing with all of us how there's been this seat change in your ability to really be kind of a media company. If you're a business owner and she was talking about the difference between p. TV and OT and like Roku and Netflix and Hulu and how as a business owner, you could possibly have your own channel. So I wanted you to go a little bit deeper into that. Yeah. So let's say you're an attorney and you are looking to present your content or information to your your prospects or prospects out there. You can actually listen. Let's say you specialize in franchises, right? Which you do. You can actually develop a franchise channel, the franchise channel and have. If someone like myself designed Avella polled that channel uploaded to the row cool system or the apple TV servers, or what have you because I'm a certified developer. So I get access to their servers to upload those software development. Kids, customize packages are what they are called. So I'd customize your brand, build a virtual set. You can shoot it stream live to any location in addition to have been that show uploaded on the OT as well as stream that show to all of those streaming platforms as well. And you can. You can also sell commercials as well within your channel. That's amazed. But that sounds like it's a lot. I mean, that sounds like it's an incredible amount of work. I'm sure that's the reason why people reach out to you because as a business owner, just thinking about what it would take to have a channel running six hours, let alone twenty four hours and the kind of content that you're producing. Must be very, I would imagine this. Well, I could build a channel in about three days. Are you serious? Absolutely. The content. Well, what if you have the content? Well, we can actually stream live on your channel as opposed to producing the whole show and and then replaying it. You can actually stream live to your channel on Roku on apple TV on your own applic- HBO go like TLC go like literally on your mobile phone. This technology has changed everything. The playing field has been leveled well, so you're saying for the for the listening audience. Let's just get this clear if you are if you were an attorney. Yes, a CPA or you are a restaurant? Sure. You own a hair salon. What does that mean practically for them? They might not want an entire channel, but are you saying they're advertising opportunities out there or there. They could create their own show, say the the way to build that relationship with their customers is to out teacher competition. I educate Mike won the market or the subject matter within my show. Just this show that you're doing if it were visual instead of radio or in addition to radio, so say you produce a radio show and you'd go straight to your studio and produced the TV piece of this, but it would stream to all the major platforms, Twitter, Facebook, pinchers, periscope. In addition to streaming live on the OT platform Roku Amazon fire, Google Chrome, casts apple, TV that I know it's so amazing, but it's literally technology has changed the game. What I want the listening on his take away from this is one piece that you said that nailed. It and I think a lot of traditional fortune five hundred companies are missing it teaching is the new marketing absolute of you go. I'm addicted to YouTube. I don't know if you are, but if I want wanna and I've been addicted since it actually start. Does. Because I, I wanna learn anything on on anything. I just go Google of it. I you to it, and then I get a YouTube and many of these people are not even influencers. They just started doing something that they love and they, I learned to code on my own. I went to, I went to college one year and dropped out, so I'm not a college graduate. I taught myself how to code many people, right? So the tools like you said, I'm agreeing with you about YouTube and there's so many twos out there to actually learn how to do this. So what I would do for the listeners, I would say, go to Roku dot com. Go to apple, TV dot.
