How to Pick a Great Contractor
"Home building is a bit of like the wild west. Right now there's Explosive demand a lot of people who want to build or buy tiny houses and regulations are starting to catch up With with the tiny house building process but On all there are a lot of great builders out there but also some bad ones and so A question that. I see all time from people in my online community. Tiny house engaged elsewhere. Is you know what. What should i look for when i'm talking to a builder when i'm when i'm hiring a builder and I was curious if we could just start at the very beginning. Maybe what are your tips like before you even pick up the phone or write an email to a contractor a builder you know. Is there anything that that you know what. What should that person have like ready before. They contact even contact anyone. Let me back you up a little bit further than that and then yeah please john walk you through. You know out of the tip but if you sort of think about it. Here's the reason we started. Great bill you sort of think about the process to find a contract very different than the search to find anything but they onli- a laptop or aristocracy whatever obviously buried and so and we started great built the realize that there is no great way to do this really the way that people have been doing this than the stone ages is a. Ask a friend you know. What kind of contractor do you recommend you know. who did you use it. you like. Who built your kate right now. That same person. So that's that's been working forever but then option number two kind of sock option number two. Is you get online. And through other review sites all the yelps and all the various sites and opened the reviews are true which these days you know and look at pictures and all the contractors rate at four or five stars and that process is not great. That's what the yellow pages was like twenty thirty years ago i'm probably dating myself here right and And so there's no really good way way option for once. Great option number. Two kinda sucked but we thought like. How do you really figure out a way to find great contractor if you If you don't know someone personally or if you don't have a friend that knows somebody because the problem is that you know you're where we work in southern california in la county alone one county with twenty thousand licensed general contractor. Okay so again tons to choose from right and the other statistic. We found that is amazing and i. I bet you'd be surprised by this. Is that fifty percent of people who work with contractor who hire contractor. There was a survey done about this. Have a bad experience with it. So of those twenty thousand you pick ten thousand. You can have a good experience. You pick the other two thousand. You have terrible experience so we said there's gotta be a better way and that's why we started great bills and all john kind of continue the conversation about what it means to then a good contractor and how we seek out good contractors. You're so as as paul said we always. We agree with it. The number one best way to find a good contractor is from referral. Someone you know either in the industry or with relevant experience that has done a project like this before it. My neighbor just finished the kitchen remodel. i talked to them. It came in at a good price and they were happy with the experience. My search is over. I'd probably already found a good fit. But if i'm not fortunate enough to have the just the right neighbor next door or a coworker or a real estate agent who can refer me to a good contractor. I'm left with the many many options on all the other sites in yellow pages and otherwise so what we do to kind of reinforce good contractor or all the same things that anyone can be doing It just takes time. It takes for expensive and so it's not so much finding a good contractor but more so screening out the bad contractor
How Your First Time Home Buying Decision Affects Long-Term Wealth With Scott And Mindy
"Scott trag- mini jensen. Welcome back to the bigger pockets. Podcast each of you former guest house here on the show. Now your Your guest which is pretty exciting. What's up guys. How's it going. Thanks for having us. I'm super excited to be back. I haven't seen you in one hundred years so i know it actually has been a while Kobe put a delay to my regular trips to denver but didn't stop.

Yeah sometimes you gotta take a vacation from maui. I guess right. I don't like to myself on the back. It's been very hard. I think. I just realized for the first half my life that when people say they're going to kabo and kabul san lucas set the same thing. Is that true. I think i've never realized that was the same thing to different cities. But i just put that two and two together that that was the same thing. I'm going to new york versus. New york. city apparently shortened nickname. Anyway rather than talking about my intelligence or lack thereof. Let's get into the scott mindy you guys last few years so for those who do not know you. I want to start with this one. Scott obviously you know everyone knows scott tranche. Everyone knows me jensen but for those who don't who are you. What's your real estate strategy. Ben and then. I wanna move into talking about the market a little bit. But let's start with that. We'll start with mindy ladies first. Mindy who are you and What what are you doing. My name's mindy jonathan. I do a lot in real estate. I am primarily a flipper. Which means i buy a house that is very unattractive. I move into it. I live in it as my primary residence fixing it up. So i live in a construction zone for two years and then sell it and make massive tax free cash when i sell it. I'm also a real estate agent in colorado. And i am the community manager for big pockets and the co host of the bigger pockets. Money podcast with me as always is my illustrious co host scott trench. Thanks wendy for the eliminating ensure there. I'm scott trench from the ceo of bigger pockets. I'm an investor here in denver colorado. I've got Eight units about one point six one point seven million in assets within that portfolio and the last couple of years have been a little quiet for me on the acquisition front and my personal portfolio. I have been spending more of that time. Investing in syndications and last year. I really set up property. Management rehabbed and Tackled a bit of maintenance that i had been deferring guests on this show. And i've been differing on a couple of my properties and took care that this year. And so i was able to reset them. Do a big refinance take a lot of cash out nine back into acquisition mode looking for that next deal. Awesome guys well speaking of next deal. It's been a crazy last year. Obviously with the real estate market covid doing some crazy things and things that i don't think any of us really necessarily expected i shouldn't i. Was you know worry that we're going to see a crash or something happened and all of a sudden instead it's just like somebody shot him on steroids into the real estate market the last six months. Why do you think real estate has gotten so competitive. And i don't even call hot as the best word i can use for it. Real real. The real markets gotten hot almost everywhere in the country. Why is that. And then i'll ask. Where do you think it's headed but let's start with that one mindy. Why do you think it's gotten so crazy lately. I think there are a bunch of actors of course cove it. I think a lot of people who were considering selling but maybe didn't have to sell has decided that i'm not gonna have random people traipsing through my house bringing their covid into my house and then i catch it and maybe die so i think there's a shortage of sales just based on the market are the pandemic itself. I think there are ridiculously low. Interest rate why. No they're low interest rates that are fueling people. Ooh i can upgrade to a better house and we didn't have anybody building houses from two thousand eight to two thousand and twelve thirteen fourteen. I mean in my area. They're just starting to do these massive builds again and it takes time and there's people that are still moving here but there's nothing to buy so prices just keep going up. I just sold a house on friday for more money than i thought was ever possible here in the story over and over. Scott what do you think. Yeah i would agree. I think the the first biggest lever is going to be interest rates. The payment matters more than the price to most homebuyers and frankly most landlords like all that fifty percent rule your expenses are not magically changing. You know in those two in those types of things based on interest rates so if your interest rate if your your payment goes down you can afford to buy. You can pay more for the same property and get achieve the same or greater cash flow so i think that interest rates are the number one biggest lever and then the second one is going to be the stimulus and just the in injection of cash and liquid into the economy. In general. I think that last year a lot of people weren't spending as much money as they nip term typically what at least those who would be potential competitors of yours when buying homes and rental properties and so people are now in a position to buy with liquidity and low interest rates. I think fundamentally the that's what's driving it. And then i also think diminish point the other factors are all many of them are also fueling this. There's been an exodus from apartments to single family homes red single-family rents have gone up apartment. Rents have fallen over the last year. Single family housing prices have exploded by more. I think it was like single family. Rents went up by three four percent and prices went up eight nine percent over the year. I think that's that's showing a fuel in demand from apartments to single family homes as rentals but an even greater preference to buy. I think fueled by that interest rate shift so other things. Lack of housing starts continued population. Growth and then Inflation in expectation of inflation. In general are all you know fuelling real estate right now. Who knows how long that will continue but hasn't been a bad year for those who held real estate going into twenty twenty.
How Real Estate Sells Cars with Gina McCartney
"Gina, welcome to . the It show is great to have you speaking to us today. Maybe just to kick things off can you maybe just tell us a bit about Gina McCartney - who you are and some background. . to thank Yes, I'm yourself sure, you so Gi for na McCartney having me here today. Super excited to see both. So my background if i go back to perhaps my brief - youth and into professional career. I really my whole life was distant creative: sculpting, painting, designing and off the back of that passion went to uni studied creative advertising and was destined. ..my path was to become a art director . My very early career was in advertising agencies and spent ten years ing servic some like pretty big clients ilo, . kohl's meyer group. Cbi off foundation and then some order client bmw and many were because of mine and it was during that time that i realized how much i loved as and surprised no surprise. I joined renault. Stralia and joining renault at the time was at a really pivotal point for the business. And that was all about preaching and finding every possible opportunity we could in the market and myra was to introduce the sierra digital program. Really lift the capability of the dealer network from a lead management perspective. Sur getting out outta rot on building confidence back in the network that we were providing leads to them in generating value from office and then from neymar roll moved into a brand and events role and so the full marketing swayed had an awesome time with the business and great team. And then my time was up. When i was tapped on the shoulder for all at anchor pinellas area group been realized real estate dot com to you joined the business not really knowing much about the role. I was joining. He'd go to market manager role and of bain there now close to seven years and moved my way through various segments. So we're two now. Residential business at develop a business emotional property meteorologisy and clients and also to stint in malaysia. And i leave the win. We acquired a southeast asia and helped with the integration of that business side at an awesome korea here. Rei and now run. I tame called the customer. Excellence team and so my team move. Twenty incredibly talented people help support our two hundred thirty sales teams across australia. And that includes the learning development perching old training ogata market siles support collateral and operations analytic. Kpi's commissions incentive sprints and really big a big team mission and vision is to pave the new way of selling and selling clock when you work for rei. Let's bit about my story. Love love gardening love dancing and eighteen. And that's how i spend most of my time let's it's an impressive story. How you you've migrated from during the karate stuff through to or i will now into real estate now. We can't get a bit of understanding as to real estate dot com o. Rei group and what's the back story of real estate. Dot com abc business was born in the garage. Dome koster and for those familiar with john. It's in the eastern suburbs of melbourne and in nineteen ninety five and they came up with a crazy idea of water. We put the photos of property onto online so people can see them on the internet and so literally scanning photo by photo by photo built this web sought. That looks very different today than what did obviously up. Twenty plus years ago and over the years to really brilliant simple idea to gos- and today with the leading australian property portal and we have hundred million plus is it as a month coming to thought trillions of photos from a perspective and yeah we service most property clients around australia and that includes real estate agents property manages developers homebuilders land developers media clients of less amount of probably. But almost all and anyone that wants to reach property. Sega's we do business. You know you've got a really interesting background. Having spent tom and credit in automotive value in real estate can you. Maybe just discuss some of the similarities. Between automotive and real estate i remember when i joined. Ra and it was probably a month thing. I thought wow. I didn't realize there was so many similarities between the two industries. And if i stop from a business structure perspective the similarities of utah franchise groups independence at relationship between head office and you know the small small businesses that are running in local and regional areas. I think that that pressure that applies with a small business to find the raw talent retain talent when there is no professional requirement This note there's no huddle to get into other industry. And i think that is a challenge that are still share today and another real estate industry in particular institute really trying to introduce their professional courses create more opportunities for the right people to enter the industry. So they've got really quality staff sieving consumers invincibles. And i think our remember. That was a challenge in the automotive industry finding the right talent and apprenticeship styles perspective perhaps a bit of bid process. But that was probably one thing that i saw straightaway is a big lesson. In automotive that i think real estate can learn with the handshake. Between sales and after-sales and if you think of the real estate version of that is the sales and rental market now rent rolls the most profitable part of a real estate agency and if you think about the handover in the importance of one to the other the ongoing retention of the customer. I think that's a really important similarity between the two some. I think some best practice sharing could happen more. And then the probably the other big similarity i would say is the is much smarter and much savia and this is probably not exclusive to automotive in real estate but their expectations have increased tenfold. And no longer. Can you get back to a later inquiry within a couple of days. We're now seeing consumer expectations at a couple of minutes. And i think that's something that dealerships deal with daily and you know the the now now now economy that exists within cosima world.

Is It Harder To Stay On Top Of Your Finances If You Are LGBTQ+?
"The question was is it harder to stay on top of your finances. If you're lgbtq. Plus the results of the poll was fifty two percent of you said it is not hard to stay on top of your finances if you're lgbt. Plus forty eight percent of you think that it is. It is harder to stay on top of your finances if you attribute to keep us. Let's open up the discussion with your stories. Hi chris during the discussion about monogamy. The term hetero normative came up a few times. Yes it did because we are very high brow without being up to give it a name until recently i also say had to learn how incredibly to normative or issues around money can be when trying to set up savings for the future and even worse during the process a buying a flat of the services and the people encountered almost exclusively focused on henry married couples a few examples when setting up a pension fund. I kept getting asked about joint funds with my husband or adding any future children to the plan. The idea that a woman in her back then thirties would not have a husband. No children and had no plans of having either in the future didn't even enter their minds. That's fascinating because i think what it reminds me of is the conversations we've had about. Lgbtq plus people going to the doctor. You don't feel like the person sitting opposite you understand your situation so you avoid talking to these people and these things like financial services pensions all. These things are real things that we all need to deal with and if we avoid them which everybody avoids pension. I still have one. I did have one for about two weeks. When i was twenty three and then i canceled. It is you. Don't you know there's another hurdle in the way to dealing with stuff because you didn't feel like you're going to be understood and you feel confident. Exhibition explanation carries on when hunting for flat. To by several of the real estate agents will literally looking searching behind me for a husband or male partner to show up because the idea of a women doing such a thing on her rain seen to bogle their minds. This is around two thousand and five not nineteen fifty five one a woman no less even said well you can tell your husband about later and see if he agrees never even bothering to ask if there is a husband fascinating now. Listen i move a lot. And i noticed that when i look at places by myself and i took what my husband. Everyone's always very nice always just kind of like little moment. You have to look note for there. We go and then they never asked about kids off to that point which i think is funny because lgbtq. Plus people can of kids that she continues. When i had finally found a place i took a friend who is a lawyer along with me to sit in the contract negotiation to make sure it was all in order. Good diligence to we made it clear right from the start what his role was but nevertheless conversation was addressed to him from that moment on. I'm not even gonna stall on the difficulty of getting the required loan mortgage in my hudson experienced. Financial services of any kind are among the least informed and inclusive industries when it comes to dealing with customers from the community this needs to change because it is negatively impacting not just the current light of many people but also making it harder for them to secure their futures. All the best hitter couldn't agree more. And i think it's because if you think about all the institutions that we deal with when it comes to things like money these huge international banks they are built for being massive to cater to the mass market. And therefore they don't really advocate it to the corners or the the people who are different in some little specific way and they absolutely should interesting now. Carlos has been in touch with the voice note. Let's have a listen. The one is it hard to stay on top of financial As ubt cupolas. I would say yes. It's really hard times. I'd say most of eligibility people leave their parents home early. And you have to start working. Pay abuse and sharon houses. 'cause you won't be able to afford the entire house i would say that it's even harder if you're a black and white cupolas because you don't have the same as a return as a white elizabeth plus but You'll get there. I hope lovely message. Thank you carlos and two very interesting point one. Is you know it's true if you want lucky enough to be born somewhere that on your doorstep other. Lgbtq plus people or community way can go and find your people. You are more likely to leave. And that means you're taking on the responsibilities of being an adult like rent and paying bills and all of that like a lot earlier. The lot people stay at home because they can. And it's so expensive to move out and that can really sway how you lead your life and then you know the the first the complication of being a black. Lgbtq plus person the colossus talking about is so true because we need the conversation that is so raging on at the moment and well over two. Is you know y. Lgbtq plus people have such a headstart and it's all about making sure we acknowledged and everybody help each other out. So thank you for that. Wonderful stuff

Knowing When To Exit And What To Look For In Your Next Deal
"Do you wanna talk about maybe some of your plans to scale like once you've improved a property and brought it to its peak and you think that now it's time to exit when you would do that and then what the what you'd look for in the next deal like what you're looking for now with your strategies of what you're trying to acquire okay so a couple of things there so first of all what i look for now is other properties that have an opportunity like they're mismanaged under rant They need some light repairs major. I don't actually normally do huge renovations on more looking for like okay. The missed managed properties. I'm also i've started doing commercial as well. And that i just look at. Is there from some reason while i'm getting a good deal like if i can get something for a good cap rate and it's a commercial property even it's not mismanaged because there's not much management to like a commercial retail center honestly. It's pretty easy but that's just like okay. There's some problem here the market while. I'm able to get this for a good character. So i'm looking for deals that have the potential to increase the revenue so more rents and then when do i sell. That's a tough question. Because i like holding onto my properties. I don't always sell sell sometimes but it has to be like i. i think i'm really getting premium for it. Even for this apartment complex. The forty unit. I probably went to seoul the except i set my price and they met it and i was like okay. Fine i never even listed like i just told a realtor about it and they brought someone it was a really easy transaction because you know what if i'm going to sell it at the get enough because now i gotta take all this money and go reinvest in. I gotta go find another deal. So that means. I have to put more work in. But it'll be worth it because a. Have cashed in all this money makes sense and then how do you find him. Do you find the sweet spot apartment complexes. Yeah so network network network network honestly. It's more about like. I'm really dialed into chattanooga. Market kinda my. It's my advantage. As i really stick to this market because i know so many i know so many other investors and i want everyone to know that i'd buy properties. I mean i got some deal from a pest control guy you know he does pest control it. Another apartment complex or another duplex is like. Hey they probably want to sell the put me in contact with them. I'll see if they're willing to sell and the sure enough they were. They were instagram. Got people bring me deals on instagram. Because they see me active in the market. I really just want everyone in chattanooga bigger pockets interview like everyone in chattanooga if you have a deal come the day. 'cause i buy and and i get repeat sellers especially real estate agents because my goal is to be the easiest buyer ever a lot of real estate agents are dealing with really difficult sellers especially when it's multifamily and there's this and there's that the sellers can be really difficult so i try to be the best possible i will like gloss over some things i don't. I'm i tried to get for a good price. But i'm really really easy to deal with especially on terms and inspection. I'll be flexible. I work their schedule. A ever they can. I always do what i say i'm gonna do. I've never not closed on a deal that i put under contract in less. I found something due diligence. I it's just never happened because that's my reputation. I am a good easy buyer. Now i buy things for a deal. Everyone knows that has to be a good price but if it's a good price i'm definitely going to buy
What is Senator Cory Booker's Super Power?
"What's your superpower because you have been a sort of superstar at life for as long as i've been aware of the name cory booker which was before you were mayor before you ran for mayor. I was hearing about this guy cory booker. who's coming and he's big and he's on point with everything. And what are you doing. i. I don't know what we're hearing it'll be before. I was mayor than in the time of public enemy. And you don't believe the height. Look i was the superpower that was evidenced for me growing up which was not exaggerating. I think it's actually. A superpower under underrated is kindness. Like i just. I just watched two parents who were really good people and would see people that folks walk past all the time. I one of my favorite quotes by humorous gave. Barry has this goes someone who nice to you but not nice to the waiter is not a nice person but you and i both know 'cause i know you have this kindness and you as well that when you are kind of people. Incredible things happen that you don't realize your favorite stories and i'll tell you the quicker version but you go into school at stanford i'd five back and forth across the country. I still remember getting on this plane as a stanford student and being is torturous. When you're like six foot three football player tight end just like coach. Was you know always like my knees. We're going to be banged up on this plane. I have two seats open next to the rest of the plane is full and just before the door closes. This woman walks in with a screaming baby and a little boy and everybody on that plane. Those where they're sitting because the only three bodies two seats. And i think that we all don't realize we have a choice that we make every moment of our lives which is to accept things as they are or take responsibility for changing and so something evolved thought for teenage college student. That point hit which was. This is either going to be the worst flight in my life where i can try to make the best so i just leaned in and started talking to her in the cry baby in soon as i got into my own drama. I realize. Oh my gosh. This woman has a crying baby. The whole plane is looking at her like she's evil as she did something outside and told her baby to cry. Purposefully right and and so we just having a good time. I still remember the movie. Think about this. How purposeful this moment for me. That i remember that movie was glory with denzel washington. And she's like. I haven't seen the movie and so long and i'm like watch this movie your son and i we're gonna play games. We played hangman. Killed them with all my best. Dad jokes that. I had even back then killed them and hangman mad. And by the time we landed. It was the quickest flight. I ever had cross country. You said we keep in touch. We exchange addresses back then no email and didn't and five ten fifteen years later. I'm running for mayor of the city of newark. And i'm getting like thumped and on one of my toughest ones frustrating days. I get this letter in the mail saying to me. You may not remember me but But i you were on this flight first time. I flew with my kids telling me what the kindness then meant to her and then she tells me by the way we. My family owns a big factory in newark and we have tons of employees. She ended up becoming a big part of my campaign. That kid that i tortured with my jokes became one of our best volunteers or per workers. Excuse me to take. Their churches introduced me. It was just an amazing full circle. Kindness is energy stanford. Professor actually studies this that you just doing one kind act witnessed by someone. It will affect people three degrees of separation for you. it is created a way to measuring it. it's a virtuous thing and so my life you know. I just think that that's is a superpower that we under related just a kind word to somebody at the right time can make a difference that you don't even realize so. I don't know if i don't have any superpowers. I'm really far more ordinary than the hype as you just said but i've just tried to go out of my way for me. It's it's a matter of my faith which is of radical love trying to do for people and you have parents like you. And i probably had two black guys who had parents would not let me forget of the struggle parents that were involved in the civil rights movement. That my i. I was raised up thinking like i didn't the privileges that i enjoy. We're not earned. They were paid for as my grandparents. Would by the blood sweat and tears of your ancest-. I definitely grew up thinking i stand on the shoulders of those who came before me. I have a responsibility to the people who march to died protested. Who were enslaved. There i remember being in college and thinking you know i was why and i didn't feel that responsibility. The past i mean cool to like pena. Cia but i can't. I have a responsibility. People came before me. I wouldn't be here without them. So i have to do something. And perhaps my think my journey in media has been something of being helpful black people in some way but you know that sense of responsibility that you talk about. I definitely felt and you have that has powered your life. It is the my faith earlier. But that is in trenton. Integral part of what motivated my life decisions. And very you know i. I'm here because a group of people fought for my housing rights. Like i grew up in the town. I grew up in harrington park. There was a group of activists when my parents were getting denied real estate agents were lying to them and telling this house is sold. It was called real estate steering at the time right and so they set up this sting operation where they would send white couples right behind my parents and so it i mean this was the story into making chapter my book because involvement at one point. My father's lawyer getting punched in the face and just like dog being signal. my dad craziness. But i'm a baby when that happened. Fifty years ago this summer that had happened and so imagine growing up with parents that could live. Look you in the eye. My dad be like boy. People had fight even get you a chance to be in the school. You're going to. You're going to get your out of bed and go to school and make the best out of yourself and so coming out of loss when i'm done and i always joke that my dad was like bat impressed. He was proud of his son but stanford oxford yale. He's like boy. You got more degrees the month of july. Which ain't hot life ain't about the degrees you get. It's about the service you give like. We're gonna do with all this privilege and so the first job. I had coming out of law. School was a tennis rights lawyer. People fought for my housing rights. I was going to go and fight for other people's and so my life. And i love you said this because we grew up reading bolt we reading voice and talented tenth and the obligations of that you get from getting the privileges that you know are denied to you. Got here is black. Men who i know the data i mean the leading cause of death for us murder fifty four fifty between fifty and sixty percent homicides in america are people look a lot like us black men and and so you feel this sense of. I can't rest. I've got to keep working. Got to keep pushing until we can make the society be what it is and by the way we never get there. At least we can try to pay that payback. What was given to us.
Minimalist Backpacks With a Cause
"My name is Kelly from Denver Colorado and I'm the CO owner of adventurous backpack company along with my wife Matilda. Adventurous was previously featured on episode five, twenty, two of side-hustle school back in two, thousand and eighteen. Adventurous backpack though we designed minimalist backpacks with a cause for every backpack sold, we provide twenty-five meals to families in need across the US since adventurous backpack. Oh. was featured on the show back in two thousand, eighteen Matilda and I have both transitioned to running the business full time. So now we're we're both a full employees and owners of adventurist before ice wished I was actually working as a real estate agent but also. Directly before I was working as a lift driver and Matilda was a nanny. We've been fortunate enough to get our backpacks into urban outfitters we've been accepted by feeding America into their enterprise. Society. We've expanded our website adventurous two at Cox Dot Com, and we've been forced a enough to have our backpacks featured in outside magazine Forbes Travel Channel Woman's Day pop sugar and more. I would say that as many businesses are experiencing the you know. Setbacks from covid nineteen right now, that's obviously a big factor in a lot of our decisions and options moving forward since a lot of our retail sales to stores, universities and events have slowed way down. Since the pandemic we've chosen to focus on e commerce and direct to consumer sales, which is really the only avenue we have completely in our control and so we've worked a lot on making. Our website adventurous backpacks dot com as a user friendly as possible, and it's actually ended up being kind of a blessing in disguise because we're now learning how to increase their sales online on our website. Since that's the only thing we're able to do you wish will be even better once all the craziness ends and we're able to continue supplying retail stores in universities with that accident as well. There there are always. Downsides to owning a business with all the freedom that it allows like being able to create your own schedule, go out and hikes and take photos and do something different every day there's also the pressure to to make money because it's a business and if you don't sell your product and you're not able to make money than. Going to be able to grow or continue, and so there's there's definitely a fair amount of stress. You know you try to find ways to cope with the stress but. It definitely can be their state. You have like a slow week of selling backpacks. We can be like, oh no what's what's happening is the you know you can have a tendency to almost overreact, but the truth is as long as you don't panic and you kind of just put in the the work necessary. Even if things are slow at the beginning or even if something goes wrong, there's always a way to overcome that and continue doing what you're doing to make to make it would. Thanks so much Kelly thanks as well to Matilda. The adventurous backpacks team. Now, listeners I always want to encourage you do the thing that is available to you. Win. An obstacle presents itself. Sometimes you can choose to attack it head on or you can say, okay, this is a pretty big obstacle such as cove. Nineteen. And this is affecting my main strategy or it's affecting a lot of what I could do. Let's say a lot of things are outside my control. So what can I do instead? And for the backpack team like focusing on retail stores wasn't a great strategy for twenty twenty they began with with trying to build more retail wholesale relationships, etc. But then obviously, it became quite apparent that that wasn't going to work so well for most of this year. So they changed it up and began paying more attention to their ECOMMERCE model. Now in the future retail may become more important again but the time and attention that they have focused on ecommerce only help them then. So do the thing that is available to you. That's my encouragement to you into myself as well. I. Think there's always a good thing to think about when you're stuck when you encounter obstacles, what can I do now? So much is out of our control what can I do? That is within my control.

Sure to you say fresh air. I think like muskoka whereas you weeks go. And i'm walking the woods hikes. Fine are used to do a lot of running outside a lot and then i just stopped because this is pointless but the problem with it is when you do it whatever you do you gotta do back. Well that's why you have like walk like a certain direction where it doesn't feel like it stressed walking to a point and then turning around and coming back you have to go through. I don't know little obstacles and just like a little roundabout timid. If you're on a treadmill okay we'll just get off in the same spot that you've got no matter. How are you go. yes yeah.

"I'm so upset because i just want them to be happy. But it happens when it happens and your dream house and the house. You're meant to be in. Might not come up to market for six months a year a year and a half. And that's why you have an agent with you is just to guide you through the whole process. Be like hey. I don't care along lakes. i'm here for you but you have to be patient because we've all seen this market but yeah i think just patients working with somebody you trust and just knowing knowing what you could afford as well. So you're saying they miss out on offers because you tell them what they should go in for and they say no. I'm going under no. It's because it's so competitive said the moral more offers on a house. The prices driven up via. Because you get fomo. They have allegra. They can't help. But i want someone got more and more to a point where it's like. Ooh that houses let them have it. It's worth that point. Which i think most are happening right now right. Yeah summer like sixty thousand over asking. The asking. price is over what it should. There's probably twenty thousand over our can't look thing as i always say this because ninety five percent of agents do this. They list the house on purpose marketing strategy. So don't look that old gonna wanna thousand over if they listed three ninety nine but based on what i my professional opinion is worth four fifty and went for four ninety at actually only went forty thousand but like you were saying we. You bought this house when when it was normal to us right so for me to hear house that was normally years ago. Two hundred and fifty thousand four hundred and fifty or five hundred of the same. You're just like what the fuck you find. That's hard to get people to understand that. This is normal. Now yes because it's not going back people. I spoke to where last year. They're like i can't believe the market where it's going. I'm going to you know. I'm just gonna wait it out and now they're like. I hate myself for waiting out because the mountain i could have paid twenty thousand nine hundred twenty twenty. We're talking all big difference so it's hard because you have to have trust in yourself have competence in the market. Have confidence in your agent. But also you don't know where the market's going really does we could look at the past history and see you know on the air flows of the market. But i in the day you have to do. What's best real. So what's the end goal for you guys like. Are you just going to keep doing. Real city is going to build like a portfolio for yourselves investor properties. What's the goal a hundred percent. Yeah for me personally To grow our brand we want to be the best real estate agents in windsor. That are goal. We have very high expectations for ourselves.

You guys do separate deals though right at a time. It's depends right so the goal is to get the recliner house when you get your house. Where's your clients right. It's great. I got them a house. I'm so happy for them. You know they work so hard but then that means during that time though that i'm searching for their dream house on prospect i have to get by client for one that clients gone.

I always related. Yeah absolutely it just has that safety net behind it right that you know you're getting into something something good but so like all the work that goes on on the back the back under something if you could if somebody came to you as a new buyer. What's something you would give them as advice to kind of go along to help them get into it. Oh so much so be patient. I think this this market is like super competitive It's a big bath sometimes. Especially if you're in a certain budget like the to four hundred thousand even though that might seem like five years ago i got so expensive. That could get beautiful so many people are in that too. If you lose out on your first offer okay if you lose it on your fifth. That's okay to just have patience. I think that's like. I always felt like i was plugging them. Bugging the agent like. Oh let's go look at this. Let's look at this one. And eventually mike i. I have to buy the next house. Because i feel like. You've you three homes and then you have to pick one. You know i just. I think the nail on the head. You have to be patient and you just have to somebody you trust. I think that's the thing like. I've had buyer's where they have literally ridden ten plus offers and the failed every single time and trust me. They're losses my loss. I'm frustrated..

Need a Job? These Businesses are Hiring!
"How about some really good job news The October twenty twenty hiring report is out. And you don't see good news in the news very often. I've got some really good job news and some very specific areas for those of you who say Ken I'm not doing what I WANNA do I'm ready for a change? Here's where you need to be looking. The demand for jobs in transportation and warehousing and retail is picking up obviously you've had the big box and the big delivery companies like ex is in the Amazon's they've been hot for a while, but they're also hiring more jobs for the holidays. How about cooking these restaurants are firing back up people are starting restaurants. People are at least for the moment. Going to eat. In restaurants need people who can cook ten Bar Bus Restaurant managing all of those opportunities are out there and those will continue I believe to heat up. Hiring in healthcare. Now we know that the emergency and the frontline medical workers those jobs have been hot, but we're see non essential areas. Not Essential I hate that term by the way, but that's the way it's listed. What that simply means is non-medical. So supportive healthcare positions if you will and be with the non mercy elected medical and dental surgeries and other procedures beginning to resume. These medical centers and hospitals are hiring once again, doctors offices are hiring once again there's a lot of growth there manufacturing is heating up. This is a good thing. I. Want to see the United States rely more on our people making stuff for US K. Tech jobs also on the rise. Because of. What covert has done for remote working it's exploded. It made it more widespread. the technology positions? That support, all of the systems for remote working to actually be effective. Well, there's just you know it's almost like A. Whole new channel of workers just to support that platform. So those technology jobs and the Ken Coleman. Show is about ready to announce a huge partnership. Oh. My goodness AB-. So excited about this. You got to stay tuned to the program or announce a big time partnership where you. Can Get trained in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost. and start making really good money in the technology field.

Should I provide a guarantee for my real estate photography service?
"Chris this is Cathy. Thanks for all the helpful in full you provide on the show. In your book, the Hundred Dollar Startup you wrote about the power of an unconditional guarantee. and. You also said that it's better to have no guarantee at all in a week one which makes sense. But in my case, I'm starting to do real estate photography. I can't figure out what's better. If I offer an unconditional, no limits guarantee you my service anyone can take advantage of it. Say Home. I take photos of doesn't sell real estate agent could come back to me and ask for their money back. But. Then I worry if I don't offer some guarantee, the agents will wonder why they should hire me. Many of them do their own photos and they're not great but they seem to work well enough for them. My overthinking. What should I offer as my money back guarantee if anything? Hey there, Cathy thank you so much. Congratulations on getting into this field definitely an exciting time for it as mentioned and as for whether you're overthinking thinking maybe a little bit I don't think that there's a wrong way here. When I mentioned that the principle that Kathy's referring to is you either have like an amazing guarantee that's unconditional and like it's GonNa Rock your world and Change Your Life or I don't get paid or you just don't have any guaranteed because I think a week money-back guarantee actually diminishes the value of the brands. It actually reduces trust rather than. The whole guaranteed just to kind of provide that reassurance. But for this kind of business, you know it's a service business that is based entirely on relationships, and so your goal isn't just to get one real estate agent to hire you for one listing your goal is to build that relationship. So you can keep working for them over and over, and ultimately the trust in your relationship is probably more important than the wording on your website about the guarantee and and also I, think. The photographer is not guaranteeing the House will sell you know there's lots of factors associated with that I, mean your your services to provide the photos. So you WANNA provide really photos you want to check and make sure they like them does the agent like the photos perhaps the clients, the home seller do they like the photos so great you know. If somebody really isn't happy at some point. Then maybe just to maintain the relationship, you could refund a portion of the, but I honestly don't think that's going to be much of an issue much more important to think about building those relationships and getting those jobs and moving forward.

If we have more listeners out there, who are fortunate enough right now to have a little extra income that you can do something like that we. Had A few special occasions through the quarantine Casey's birthday mother's Day, and we've been making a point to order from local places here to It really does go a long way because as we're reopening I, think this is actually even more of a tough time for small businesses particularly restaurants and bars because we're not gonNA be able to operate at full capacity and we are still going to be doing takeout orders I. Say we like Iona Restaurant talking to. You at this point and I don't I don't I don't on ending any of US small business owners.
