"two more deals" Discussed on BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast

"We working on your deal because you just need some advice or are you working on idea that you would like to sell to us or you would like to partner up on? You really got to clarify what it is because if it turns out that, hey, I'm like 90% sure I want to buy this thing, but I could really use some advice as to why what are the gotchas or what do you think of this type of market or this type of product or whatever else it is. I just love giving advice. And I want it to be as personalized as possible. And I find that in the world of realtors that see a fixer on the market and they immediately think of a client that will fit for that product. Here's the product that's in Brandon's buy box. I want those realtors to be engaged enough to say, this could work for me. I'm going to use my own buy my own research really. I'm going to trust in my own opinion and mentality of this is a deal. And then when those people run out of their own capital, it gets wholesale out. It gets partnered. It gets, you know, there's joint ventures that grow out of it, but to know your buy box right now, it's this huge opportunity to know that a corner lot is the perfect ADU lot and you can add a unit and convert a garage and that's my product. It's always occupied during construction. The risk of downside is so low and they're an engineer by trade and they know this is my buy box. I'm comfortable with it. And then at the end of it, I'm gainfully employed. I get a long-term loan on it. And I didn't have any vacancy during that. Now I have significant income. It's like getting the land for free on a deal. You just figure out what motivates you and what your buy box is and what your commitment to time is. I'm willing to do 60 hours this year committed to this thing in order to be two more deals or one more deal. For some people, some people, the next deal. It's exactly how they're making the leap to be self employed. So it's super motivating to be part of other people's growth. When I first spoke at the Utah me and you explained, I work for invitation homes and I bought 2400 homes in 24 months or something like that. I remember this doesn't happen to me very often, just like freezing with my mouth open as the little spinning wheel on a Mac was going on. My whole brain was trying to recalibrate as far as how do you do due diligence on a deal like that? Like my whole model is based on finding individual property, look at the details of that property, turn those details into numbers that it would cost to fix them and then say like, Brandon, is their profitability that I would want, whether it's cash flow, appreciation, whatever the thing is. I've traveled that path many, many times. It's well worn. And for the majority of investors, that is how we teach them, because most of them are buying one house at a time. It's a plant that's need. Yes, and when you said that, I'm like, how could you do that without being reckless? 'cause you don't seem reckless. And I'm sure invitation homes is not stupid. They have people much smarter than me working for them. So there's obviously you kind of explain well there's math involved. X amount of Olympic deals amount of them will be okay..

"Don't want the radio show today we're doing the emails. That is the last week or two that I've received in The glass question we had was You know, I'm looking at this money and investing it, But it's in my IRA. What should I do if I leave it in the IRA? I don't have any cash flow. If I take it out of the IRA, I pay taxes. And I said, Well, you just got to look at it. You don't really have that money until you take it out of that IRA. It's not yours. It belongs to the IRA, which is Government held entity really saying that we're holding your money for you until you decided to pay us taxes. Now, if you want to let that money become larger and larger and larger. Then we'll let you go and let it become larger within the ire A. So when you get ready to pay taxes, you pay more taxes. The only way you look at it. So if I want you to think about this way, if you think about taking money out of your area want you to think about talking to your boss and your boss is look, Bob. Because the same you know, basically says here is he's saying, Look, I don't want to allow my Mike. Income bracket to go up right and that's the problem. It's uh You know, if you take the money out, you're already making your income making underground year you tax at 100 year level. But if you take 100 grand out of your IRA, then you're taxed at 200 grand a year. So the concept is you're supposed to take the money out of your IRA. Once you quit your job, and we're retired, because then you don't have income, offsetting the taxes and you pay the same taxes you pay, But the reality is you're going to pay the taxes. And so you know, the discussion was Hey, you take it out a little bit in time, invested a little bit at a time and you take the hit a little bit of the time and not Jackie tax bracket of the large amount. That's a possible way to do it. Right. Um On the other hand, think about this. What if your boss came to you today and said Bob I'm going to give you a $50,000 bonus this month. Would you say, Sir, Please don't do that. Why, Bob? Because you're gonna Jack my tax bracket up. It's gonna mess me up bad. Okay, well, Bob, I was going to give you 100,000 this year. 50,000 and 50,000 year, please, Boss. Don't give me that 100 grand Your bad that to mess up my tax bracket. Now, think about it that way. And then you see how stupid it is deep worry about taking the money out of the IRA. If you were dumb enough to put it in the IRA in the first place dumb enough to put in the 41 K in the first place and let a large amount of money accumulate under a tax rate that's higher than lower and said, Why do I say that? Because there lies at the end of your life going to be in your lowest tax bracket. That's not true at the end of your life. When you're my age, you're in the highest tax bracket you've ever been in. I'm in a higher tax bracket I've ever been in. It doesn't go down As you get older, it goes up, especially if you're investing. So it's a lie. So what you have to do is just unlearned. The lie that they burned you with. All right. So what connection here says first, Let's say thanks for giving me so much inspiration. I have been listening to your show for over two years. Now. Here are the facts. I'm 62 years old. Now. Here's an interesting one when we get into these ones where they start telling us their age. Now they're looking at a whole nother variable factor. And that is Can I do this at my age? Okay, so I am 62. I'm working from home full time and take care of my 88 year old mother. I make $32,000 a year. After 30 years of marriage, I'm able to now think for myself divorced for five years Now he took everything and then some. I've repaired my credit. It's now 8 10 and I have no debt and I have been able to save about $18,000 have already signed up. But after listening to the case studies I feel like I don't make enough to have enough to save the last 30 years I've been imprisoned, and I kept in isolation about ex husband and I survived. I'm not looking for sympathy. But honesty can you help Look, first of all age, there's no age limitation to doing this. I'm 64 years old. I'm still deeply invested in real estate and more so all the time I looked at two more deals last week in another deal today, Even so, yeah, there's no problem about the age. Secondly, the problem the challenge it was called anything. Is the $32,000 a year of income taking care of your mother 88 year old mother. Now we get into the thing. Okay? Do we have enough income to debt ratio to be able to afford to go buy a rent house with only $18,000? That's all she's ever going to be able to buy. Right is one Red House and one rent house would be beneficial for her both income wise and tax savings wise, but that's all she's going to be able to buy. And if you keep that Red house and does it correctly and save your money, it will be a marginal benefit to her. It would be a good tax benefit to her. But marginally come benefit her because only one house and then you've got this thing. You now have to know how to deal with which is a house a Red house, right? And you can need to do that. Now you work from home. So that's probably not a problem to be able to do it so all in all, could she do it? Yes. Would it be the best thing for her to do in this case, you get a 50 50 from me. And the reason why I should you get a 50 50 years because 50% of my brain says, you know, from what I'm hearing in this email. She needs to do something to prove to herself that she's a real human being can do things. In that case, getting into lifestyles, finding out how to buy a Red House by a very small and expensive rent house with a small amount of money. She has to work with using hard money lender so you can get in for that amount, which you can, By the way you get into a house for 18,000 with the right deal done the right way. We see the case study almost every month, so it could be done. And for those reasons for her psychological reasons, I say yes. For her financial reasons to use up all $18,000 of her savings. In one transaction at her age with her mother as being a problem at the challenge, folks, I'd have to give this one a 50 50. And if it means enough to work, I learned something long time ago. Whatever you tell people they can't do something. They're going to do it anyway. Just to prove you wrong if it really means something to her to do something like that, By all means, let's get her going Next one here. I'm 49 years old, had three kids. I owned six year old small business that is service.

$32,000 100,000 five years 100 grand 18,000 100 year Bob three kids today $50,000 50% last week 50 62 Mike Red House first one one house 50,000

"two more deals" Discussed on The Journal.

"The journal is our daily deep dive into the biggest stories in money. Business empower for a wider. Look at today's news the wall street journal's got you covered our. What's news podcast. It's concise comprehensive with context and analysis twice a day on the go. It's the news that shapes your world so you can take on the world subscribed to what's news from the wall street journal wherever you get your podcasts. After months of looking for that mature unicorn ackman zeroed in on a company universal music. Universal music is one of the biggest music companies in the world. If not the biggest they own a bunch of song catalogs you know artists including lady gaga taylor swift billy. I relish the weekends and then classic acts like queen and the beatles last year universal bought. Bob dylan's entire publishing catalog and akman head another connection to universal music. He liked the business and he thinks music is going to be. You know a growing market in the years to come but personally there was a special touch for him. Universal happen to own a hit song that his grandfather had written years ago. His grandfather wrote the song in nineteen twenty six. It was called. Put your arms where they belong for. They belong to me. Did his grandfather make a bunch of money off at the song. Unfortunately no i think he sold it for like two hundred fifty bucks or something. At the time. Universal music was in the process of spinning off from its parent. Company and ackman in universal started talking about a deal. Details of their talks leaked out. In june that ackman spec was trying to buy a ten percent stake in universal in what would be the biggest deal of all time but there was more to it than that so it was pretty complicated. Actually basically he's going to use some of that money to buy the stake in universal. But then you'll still have over a billion dollars leftover to put toward a different deal in the future. And as if that wasn't enough he also sprung on investors that he'd like to get them in on yet a third deal in the future so instead of using his back to buy one company ackman now is buying a stake in universal saying that the rest of the money more than a billion dollars would go to future deals down the line. How was it received. I think there was a lot of head-scratching. It was kind of like we were expecting one big deal and we get one deal which is not what we expected and then two more deals that have us asking a lot more questions so it was a little bit of a head scratcher that day regulators were among those scratching their heads. The securities and exchange commission raise questions with elements of this transaction and then in july admin announced. He dropped the deal instead. Ackman's own investment firm would buy the stake in university. But the questions about the deal didn't stop there earlier this month ackman's back was sued over. The plan lawsuit was filed by two pretty big names robert jackson. He's a former sec. Commissioner and john morley who teaches at yale and is a leading expert on the investment company act. They allege in their lawsuit that his spec is operating in breach of the investment company act of nineteen forty which governs companies whose primary businesses investing in securities and they allege that pershing square's spec was operating as an investment company without being regulated as one. What's the difference there. What's the difference between the spec. In an investment company investment companies primary purpose is to invest in stocks and things of that sort whereas the specs primary purposes to merge with a company investment companies have to register as investment companies. They have to abide by certain requirements. It differs in how they hold securities. And how they compensate the people that run them the lawsuit alleges that by trying to buy a stake in universal music ackman's back was basically acting like an investment firm in other words. Ackman was misusing this back in its money to invest in securities rather than merge with another company and how did ackman react ackman sent a letter to shareholders and by far the most shocking takeaway was that he said he might have to return all four billion dollars to investors. And that's a big deal because he'd be walking away from doing a deal through the biggest spec we'd ever seen he did say the lawsuit was meritless but that the whole legal process would mean. It wouldn't be resolved in the short term. And would be a big distraction. And he said he's worried. The lawsuit could have a chilling effect on other specs and their ability to complete deals. The questions about ackman's back. Maybe part of a growing blowback against specs generally. I think it's the beginning stages of the spec reckoning that frankly people had been predicting since beginning of the frenzy over a year ago. There's been a sharp uptick in lawsuits concerning. Specs filed in federal court with the vast majority of them being filed this year. I think a lot of advisers working on specs. Think that there will be more scrutiny. There already is thinning out among specs. In which only the strongest survive. And where does all of this leave bill. Ackman's spent it's hard to say. There's still a chance he could find another deal and use that money after all if not though he's going to have to return that fourbillion to the people who gave it to him to a lot of people on wall street. It would be proof that his goals were just too lofty first backs to hold but for him he still has a chance to and the story in.

"Back. Well, why not just say it like I'm thinking it From time to time on this show at this time of the day, you might hear Recorded conversation from earlier in the show. I feel like we've got to make sure Bulldog even though there seems to be no new information since earlier we've got to make sure we make it clear we are talking live to Paul, who joins us. The West her hotlines or no one thinks so. I already heard this because you didn't. We're doing it again because the draft is coming closer. Paul, Is there anything new, though, that we can focus on here? No, there isn't. I made some phone calls and haven't gotten anybody say Hey, you better better hang on. Better be prepared. I got a little bit of warning on the rest of line in one, but, uh, as far as this one goes, no, but still plenty of time. I mean, the draft doesn't start for an hour and a half, and sometimes you get trades as you're waiting. You know, it's like, all right, the Uh, Seattle cracking around the clock and then a minute later. It's like, Well, you have a trade, you know, So it's it's announced right then and there, so there's still time. There's still time for one or two more deals to be made by the Sabres. Should they come along? That'll be exciting, right? It would be to get up there and then they're totally into that high pick traded. I mean, what we can say I think I think we'd all agree is that if such such speculation arises tonight, We might all think that the Sabres are involved, You know, like given the Eichel status and Reinhardt even in the last month or two talking about this, like, if you hear that say Anaheim is doing something we're gonna Work up. Yeah, And what's to say two and Adam's case he would love to get in the top five. I think in hop onto one of those for words that are high in the draft. Might he take? What he just got today is one in this too. And move up. You know, I know that's sometimes not advise. But if he really wants it's not that there are that many great forwards in that draft and if he thinks Caught. One or two of them are cut above the rest. You know, he might take what he, uh, got today and and do it to move up to number three or four or something like that. Well, if it's correct that they was reported, I think, Lance Kosowski the news connected them to Ekland, Um, Swedish forward, They'd have to get up pretty probably tonight, say at least three to make sure they were going to make that happen. Yeah, you know, because I think you know you You couldn't have much, You know, certainly that he'd be blasting much longer than that. So, you know, let's assuming they don't pick them first overall, which I'm comfortably assuming at this point, I think they will pick on power. I would assume that too. I think that would be Think you're going off the board enough. I think there's a big enough difference between the two that I don't know if I would agree with that one. Hold on. You got your squishy toy out for the draft. Is that what Sorry friend just showed up. Yeah, sure. I'm sure it was Fred. I'm sure it was wonder which one of your sons was coming up with a squeaky toy gone on to play with dad. Oh, yeah. Paul, Those were those were days. It's Paul. Are you almost certain that its power as well, you said you just said that. I think I think so. Yeah. Um, I haven't heard from anybody that would say anything different, but you never know. Sabres are pretty good at keeping their cards close to the vest these days. So, uh, you we'll see. We'll see how it goes down. What do you think of Philadelphia being the team for the wrist of line and move? Well with Fletchers or GM. It doesn't surprise me. I mean, he's the one that Minnesota just got under got out from under. Well, I guess they didn't get out from under. Not right. Not entirely. Yeah, to hold very large contracts. And guess who signed those? Fletcher, you know, at the Minnesota Wild Which at the time it's like, Oh, yeah, We got this to really good hockey players, But we forgot that there also is the end of these contracts to win. These players aren't aren't very good anymore. You know, there are guys like Should. I don't want to say it should be illegal. But there are certain GM Dave Dombrowski. Maybe is one where you know what? I'm just going to be here for a few minutes. I'm gonna Murray kind of for us like it's going to go do do stuff. And it's not his money. That they're paying Zach piracy at this point, you know, it's not his money, so You, You shoot for it. And then if you win, you're probably in for life. And he did enough to get this. I mean, he's kind of already sort of grown up in the sport a little bit. I think you can clobber him all day long for this crystalline and trade. I wouldn't criticize for signing Suter and Parise. Wanted the Sabres society suit in pre say, I mean, you're you're trying to win. You're trying to win right? Then they're the best free agents on the market. Go get it like we're the contracts Absurdly long. Of course they were. That's how you do it. I think you signed those contracts knowing that the back end of it is going to be trouble. But you hope you do enough winning before you get to the back end of it, you know, and it's a gamble, and it didn't work. Both I I don't think that is the way to do it. I mean, so many very few of those worked out. I mean, ho so worked out. I would say John Tavares has been a good signing, but I think we could probably out and even know if we get 10 if we would go out of the last 15 years, as far as high end, unrestricted free agency that people aren't regretting contract, So no point Paul Yeah, that's right. But there are other incentives for a GM, you know with their owner. There are other incentives. Like to bring those guys in home for a shooter or both. Maybe like two to bring those guys in represent represented something to that franchise. We've we've not seen. The Sabres succeed very often in like big free agency. But I don't know..

Rookie Reply: Next Steps After Buying Your First Property

"The next step after your first property as far as financing steps to scale to a larger portfolio. So we were just talking about this. How that's a very common question is okay. What do you do next. How do you grow. How do you scale. I think the first thing. I'd say ashes for those of you. That haven't done your first deal yet. Don't worry too much about scaling to five ten twenty thirty properties right like just really keep your focus like focused on that first year but once you get that i deal done or if you're just thinking kind of long term. I think the first thing that you want to focus on is the financing portion right. Like that's nothing would kind of trips people up the most is. How do i get financing how to have the capital. How to wire forward that second deal. I can kind of share my experience and know hopefully you guys can get some instruction from that but i partnered with someone else and mean partner with that. Other person is what a lot meet. You have both the time. And the capital to continue to grow our business between the both of us we had enough available capital enough income to qualify for these mortgages to cover the debts income ratio to afford the down payments. A lot of these short term rentals so to furnish them so for me from a finance perspective to scale. It was pardoned when someone else that had a strong balance sheet to match mine. That's horrible to kind of keep that train moving yeah. My situation was very similar. To tony's i partnered with somebody and they brought the money and i was the experience so once you have that first property though you are at a huge advantage. Because you've done one deal you have that track record. You have that experience you can show the numbers you can show how that property is cash flowing you can actually go out and find a partner or you can find a hard money lender. You can find ways to get money and it's going to be a lot easier than if you're going out looking for your first property so tony. Let's talk about the different ways of where they can get money. I mean the for the first obvious way to purchase properties. You save twenty percent and you go out and you get a conventional mortgage to buy your next property

Cohen's book foreword: Trump 'wouldn’t mind if I was dead'

"The book is that is written by Michael Cohen. This book has not yet been published. It's going to be released, I think, on September 7th But what he did Dio was he released the forward to his book, The introduction. The introduction to his book, and it says, Ah, lot Now I found this Tio. I went to disloyal the book dot com That's the name of the book Disloyal. And the foreword to the book is published at Disloyal the book dot com and I want to share with you some of what this, says An and I hope you will be patient with me because I am going to read what Michael Cohen says. And it's scary stuff that he's talking about, and this is just the prelude. This is just the introduction to what the book contains. He says. The president of the United States wanted me dead. Or let me say it the way Donald Trump would. He wouldn't mind if I was dead. That was how Trump talked like a mob boss, using language, carefully calibrated to convey his desires and demands while at the same time employing deliberate in direction to insulate himself and avoid actually ordering a hit on his former personal attorney. Confident constantly, Eri and at least in my heart. Adopted son. I'm I'm skipping around on this, by the way, because it's way too long for me to share with share all of it with you. Ever since I had flipped and agreed to cooperate with Robert Mueller in the special counsel's office, the death threats had come in by the hundreds enraged Trump supporters vowed to kill me and I took those threats very seriously. The president called me a rat and tweeted angry accusations at me as well as my family. All rats deserve to die. I was told I was a low life Judas and they were going to hunt me down. President Trump controlled all the levers of the commander in chief, and all the Overton covert powers that come with the highest office in the country. He also possessed a cult like hold over his supporters, some of them demonstrably unhinged and willing to do anything to please or protect the president. I knew how committed these fanatics were because I've been one of them on acolyte obsessed with Donald J. Trump, a demented follower willing to do anything for him, including as I vowed, wants to a reporter. To take a bullet. On the eve of my public testimony, lying in the still of the night in my hotel room, taking a bullet assumed a completely different meaning. Hey, Michael Cohen. This is a quote. Hey, Michael Cohen. Do your wife and father in law know about your girlfriends? GOP representative Matt gets tweeted me that night to cite just one example of the juvenile idiocy and menace aimed in my direction. Quote. I wonder show remain faithful. When you're in prison. She's about to learn a lot. It's not just that it's juvenile. It is menacing. It is disturbing it is. You know what it is? It is obstruction of justice. It's witness tampering is what it is. To half of Americans, it seemed like Trump was effectively a Russian controlled fraud who had lied and cheated his way to the White House to the other half of Americans to trump supporters. The entire Russian scandal was a witch hunt invented by Democrats still unable to accept the fact that Hillary Clinton had lost fair and square in the most surprising upset in the history of American presidential elections. Both sides were wrong. Trump had colluded with the Russians, but not in the sophisticated ways imagined by his detractors. I also knew that the Mueller investigation was not a witch hunt. Trump had cheated in the election with Russian connivance as you will discover in these pages because doing anything and I mean anything to win has always been his business model and way of life. Trump had also continue to pursue a major real estate deal and deal in Moscow. During the campaign, he attempted to insinuate himself into the world of President Vladimir Putin and his coterie of corrupt billionaire oligarchs. I know Because I personally ran that deal and kept Trump and his Children closely informed of all updates, even as the candidate blatantly lied to the American people, saying there's no Russian collusion. I have no dealings with Russia. There's no Russia. I knew trump better than anyone else did. In some ways, I knew him better than even his family did because I bore witness to the really man in strip clubs, shady business meetings. And in the unguarded moments when he revealed who he really waas a cheat. A liar, a fraud, a bully a racist, a predator. A con man. I know where the skeletons are buried because I was the one who buried them. When Trump wanted to reach a president, Russian President Vladimir Putin via a secret back channel. I was tasked with making the connection in my Keystone Kop fashion. I stiffed contractors on his behalf, ripped off his business partners lied to his wife, Melania, hide its sexual Infidelities and bullied and screamed at anyone who threatened trumps path to power. From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas to tax fraud. Two deals

Senate Is Expected To Pass USMCA With Bipartisan Support

"Right now is the impeachment. Trial moves forward in the Senate. They're also some big developments on the trade front the US Mexico candidate agreement or the US as it's known is on its way to becoming law. Aw the Senate is expected to pass. North American trade pact. Today with bipartisan support. Sending it to President Trump's desk this comes just a day after phase one trade agreement between the United it states and China was signed at the White House I want to start with NPR chief. Economics correspondent Scott horsely. Scott Good Morning David. Do you mind if you can't just giving us a sense of what is in this. The new agreement that it's being dubbed his Nafta two point. Oh yeah some ca updates the original Nafta to cover things like digital commerce that barely existed existed. When the deal was I signed a quarter century ago at the insistence of House Democrats It also includes stronger protections for Labor and the environment especially in Mexico. Texaco the biggest change to Nafta though is in the automobile sector where this deal requires cars and trucks to include more North American content in order to qualify for duty duty free status and it also says a wage standard that could result in some auto production shifting from Mexico back to the United States. Let's stick with us if you don't mind I I want to bring in another voice here. It's Neil Bradley To talk about the impact this could have on the US economy. He's executive vice president and Chief Policy Officer at the US Chamber of Commerce. Thanks thanks for being here this morning. Thanks for having me David. Does the Chamber think this is a good deal for American businesses. It is for reasons that Scott outlined it makes significant improvements on on things like digital trade that didn't exist before for the first time ever as a chapter on small businesses. There's one hundred twenty thousand small businesses in America who send goods services to Canada and Mexico. So this is good for them. Most importantly however there are twelve million American jobs that are in part supported by trade between Dr Three countries. In getting this deal done passing through the Senate today getting it signed by the president provides certainty for those twelve million Americans. Is there anything that businesses businesses might lose with the end of Nafta since this is now going to be replacing that that agreement. I don't know that there's so much we lose. There are some changes. Ah You know. No deal is perfect. This isn't the deal that the US chamber would have written but on balance. It's one that enjoys bipartisan support. And perhaps that's the most important aspect about it. We've had political conflict between the two parties between business and labor over NAFTA since the ink was dry back in the early nineteen nineties this removes that uncertainty Labor Business Democrats Republicans were all bought in support of this new agreement. And that's something that we you don't see very often in Washington anymore and that's something that our economy and American workers deserve to have. which is that bipartisan? Buy In in Washington. I speaking of uncertainty. I WanNa ask you about this new phase one trade agreement with China We've been hearing already. Some doubts about whether China is actually going to buy these billions and billions of dollars more in American goods as they've committed The government is is leaving some doubts about that. Are you confident if they don't follow through on that. Could that hurt American American businesses in terms of what they were expecting here. We'll certainly and it's important that everyone live up to their commitments and especially important that the Chinese live up to their commitments in this phase. One deal Equally fact even more important than the purchases and that's good for American farmers and manufacturers is resolving some of our long standing trade trade tensions with China intellectual property theft forced technology transfers state subsidies that make the disadvantage American businesses. This this phase one deal begins to tackle some of those problems not all of them. That's why we need to phase two deal so it's especially important that in this time the Chinese to all all of their commitments that they've made as part of the steel just stepping back over the last few years of trade policy under the trump administration. All that's come with it. Scrapping deals igniting trade disputes drawn out renegotiations. On the whole. Do you think these new deals are worth the pain. That businesses manufacturers farmers workers have have felt. I so you have to look at each one individually. The President deserves credit for tackling longstanding. Problems with China You people can disagree with the tactics that got us to this point but it is really important that we finally address this these problems with neo the the world's number two largest economy You know I I think NAFTA USMC as a little bit different I think we could have gotten to where we've gotten today. Maybe without a little bit of the turmoil We'd like to see less last turmoil lessons. Certainly in our trading relationships with Europe but part of that's on both sides of the Atlantic the the Europeans are doing some things that are currently disadvantage in American businesses. Neil Bradley is Executive Vice President Chief Policy Officer at the US Chamber of Commerce. Thanks so much for your time. Thanks for having me and I want to bring back. NPR's Scott horsely Scott Sounds pretty optimistic. There the view from the chamber does that reflect. What you're hearing I mean is is optimism widespread among American businesses and elsewhere? You Know David the. US MCA THE AS GONNA make some modest changes to NAFTA and so it's expected to give a modest boost the US economy by Mo main most forecast is supposed to up GDP by maybe one third of one percent but the biggest sigh of relief. You're hearing is that. The president didn't scrap NAFTA with nothing to replace it as he had threatened to do. And that's the certainty that Mr Bradley's talking about likewise The phase one China deal would avoid some of the disruption to transpacific trade that the the trade war has brought but it still leaves steep tariffs in place on about two thirds of the stuff we buy from China. Historically free trade deals have been about lowering trade barriers in the trump era. There's also a pretty good dose of Protectionism N._p._R.. Scott horsely Scott. Thanks so much you welcome

How Do You Deal With Cold Email Pitches?

"How do you deal with cold email pitches now. These are people you've never heard of people that you haven't built a relationship ship with having met them at a conference in our friend. They're just pitching you. The guy your email somehow through the interwebs on something they want okay. That's the bottom they want something. That's why they're emailing emailing you. The guest posts they want to invest. They want to be a partner. They want to be an affiliate. No problem with cold emails is that there's a lot of reading to do. There's a lot of filtering to decision making to do and at the star I used to read every single email. I used to reply personally. I should go back and forth. It's not the first replies the problem. It's the constant Johnson replying back in that thread even when you politely say I'm sorry not right now. It's not a good fit they'll go back and insist and it's just back and forth when out continue to reply which will fuel that conversation again and it was endless and I was wasting so much of my day dealing with cold emails because I wanted to be a good good person and I wanted to be polite and I thought this was the only way I'm here to tell you. It's not the only way and if you want to solve this once and for all this is what you have to do you have to hire out for it and it's not that hard. You actually need to hire an executive assistant. You've been a part time one. Somebody who's going to spend ten twenty hours a week on this task and maybe some others that you want to get off your plate and depending on where you hire them from in custody as low as four hundred to eight hundred thousand dollars a month so also worth it now even if you hire part time just to take care of this. This will be a game changer for you. You'RE GONNA gain back so much time find out. How much of your time is worth. If you're going to hire somebody part time for four hundred dollars a month and you're spending ten hours a week on cold. Emails is your time worth more than ten dollars an hour. I sure hope so so then make the investment now. What is this executive assistant. What does this virtual assistant going to do. They're going to create a standard operating procedure for each type of email each type of cold outreach if they're trying to be a guest on your show your podcast then they're going to have a procedure for that. They're going to create one for you. They're going to create a form that this person would have to fill in order to even qualify to be on the show that alone is going to lead a whole bunch of people people and if you want an example of that form checkout one zero zero. Mba Dot net slash apply to teach. That's our form forget teachers and you could see what we require. You're now hiring out for this is going to save you a lot of headaches one because you're going to somebody who's got a document procedures for everything. Somebody's reaching out to guest posts. Somebody's reaching enough for your time for a coffee investors whatever it is they're going to create the procedure and they're gonNA do for you. They're going to reach out say hey. I'm so and so I. Mo Mars Assistant If you're interested in guest posting the first step is to fill out this form. This gives us an idea if we can accept her ghostbuster not or if you don't don't accept guest posts they can just say hey almost assistant at this time. We're not accepting guest posts. Thanks for your interest and you don't even touch it now. What does this mean this means. You have to give access to your inbox your assistant. If you don't WanNa give impersonal access your personal inbox. That's totally fine. You can create a different inbox and make sure all increase get sent to their meaning that we're you have your contact link at the bottom of your website that that links up to the email. Oh you're giving the assistant worst case scenario. If things get mixed up you can always forward the email inbox that they have access to whether it's contact at Your Business Dot Com or support at Your Business Dot Com. The point here is you should not be wasting time with this you need to do brings is in the revenue for Your Business. This is Dan Martell calls ten dollars tests which is broken down worth ten dollars. An hour is ten dollars asks. You should be working on one thousand ten thousand dollar tasks the things that bring in the big bucks hiring the right people so they can improve your product and improve your marketing and all that stuff so hiring out is the best solution in two dealing with cold emails. Let them filter it out. If the person that's reaching out has something of value that is in the line with of your values what you need your assistant filter that out for you presented to you. Hey we have three people there. They're offering this. They can give you a nice summary on a call nice and easy and and yet. I'm happy to speak to that person for ten minutes on a video call. That's worth ten minutes of my time that person no just get back to politely say not at this moment so so much simpler so much easier and you could focus on making your business better and not these adleman tasks. I wish I can give you some sort of tool or automation. Russian or some sort of software that can take care of this but this is the best way to deal with this professionally and personally with an assistant is going to cost you nothing in compared to what what you're gonNA save and time and effort and headaches don't do what I did at the star where I answered every single email myself. I thought I had to know you. Don't you're assistant. Anybody on your team is an extension of you. They are getting somebody who is going to handle their inquiry. You're not ignoring them.

Students Skip School Across Europe to Demand Climate Action

"Students in the UK are demanding that their government declare a climate emergency. Secondary school students marching in Manchester England today, they're part of a growing movement students from around the world walking out of school to demand much stronger action on climate change, thousands of young people also gathered in parliament square in London and in Liverpool. Eighteen year old Abby super Manian organiz his school student walkout. Honestly, the turnout was even greater than we expected. We only really started organizing liberal about three days ago, and obviously it's very difficult to go to essentially schools and say walk lessons. Disobey literally everything you patterns in teachers are saying because this is what is like when Houghton and we've had a absolutely fantastic reception here in the UK. Thousands of kids out across the country. And what did you do this? Why did you organize? So this whole movement started with a fifteen year old girl in Sweden. Tonsberg who basically went on strike from school and sat outside the speech parliament, and since then she's gone on to speak at the United Nations, and she's gone on to speak at the World Economic Forum in Davos where she addresses the assembled leaders in industry leaders adults. Keep saying we owe it to the young people to give them hope. But I don't want your health. I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I wanted to feel the fair I feel every day. And then I want you to act. I wanted to act as if the house was on fire. Because it is. So that's really what brought me into this. I've been talking to loads of children around my city. I honestly big really energized and enthused by the glazing commitment, the amazing enthusiasm that so many children is under fire showing for that matter. And this issue was your school supportive your school in Liverpool. What I think we find the receptionist is that teachers pilot me really supportive of us, obviously, there's a bit of classroom management. But generally speaking, the feeling from teachers on the ground some students has been really positive. I think in fact next month on fifteen March they should be school scheduled. The United States to Abbas out. So yeah, I was gonna ask you. Are you connected to young climate change activists in the United States? So being lateral organisation has connections with international we've coordinating between international organizations. We're all colonizing separately. But under the same banner, and coordinating our strikes to be on same day much momentum lead us now. I don't know if you saw this, but Prime Minister Theresa May's Downing Street officers said it's really important for young people to engage on serious issues like climate change. But don't disrupt the class schedule as a result. What's your reaction to that statement? And that is that it's not like climate change issues recognize we don't know that they exist. Gather every couple of years to talk at climate change conference, right. The problem is the conference in the United Kingdom in the United States across the Westworld on taking concrete enough snaps in order to take action on these problems us having to start from school. We don't want to strike from. So we want to go to school. We want we want our educations. But as like mentioned what what's the point getting an education if we won't have a future. Thank you. The reason I know thank you. You really aren't doing enough. What difference will these protests today really make? I mean, do you see this as a rising wave that can change the world? Yes. I mean, I personally think that this is it is absolutely amazing to see hundreds of thousands of children across the world in succession educating themselves on the issues and going on to Mark measures. I think as we strike mounted it puts more pressure on world governments to take action to make concrete proposals. Because I think they're starting to realize that young people will be silence and won't be both off with any half-measures or goody two deals that they don't really enforce you mad at adults for not leading more firmly on this. Honestly, I am my generation is going to be the fascination in human history and then tie history of mankind. That will be poorer less vegetated and have a lowest standard of like every other banal parents which. Has never happened before in the entire history.

Markelle Fultz and the Sixers Are Probably Breaking Up

"For him. Would you very little the thing with faults is it's not just the player here. It's not just a former number one pick. It say former number one pay who is due to get paid nine point seven million dollars next year twelve point three million dollars a year after that fifteen point six in the final year. Of his deal. That's a lot of money for a guy who right now is a negative player for your team. That's a significant investment as the Sixers would just want to give them away either. No, you can't just give them away. But honestly, I wonder if you surveyed the league, I mean, I guess you just need one team. That said, hey, Scott was the best player in the draft or believed that and we've got the infrastructure to help him get to where he needs to be. I wouldn't give up on them though, for that is act reason, whatever his problem is whether it's you know, kansallis mentioned it could be a thumb problem. It's been reported that can be a risk problem shoulder. Whether it's nerves or something else. Whatever it is the mental component. I still think at twenty years old. There's a lot of time for him to fix. But the problem is that he could be the type of player, not till a second contracts. I mean who only be twenty four when he gets the second deal. Right. It might not be until he's twenty six until Markelle volts is back to being Markelle Foltz. And I talked to an executive awhile back about those fringe players, right? There's certain guys out there that you like, but you don't want to invest them. You don't wanna have to spend the resources or the money on that player? So you let him develop overseas or in the G league or in another organization, and then when you feel like that guy is ready. That's when you go get him. Markelle Foltz is kind of in that category right now, especially when you factor in his salary, the amount of money that's going to be need to be committed to him never mind the microscope. He'll be under in your situation and all the problems, but he's still the type of guy that long term. I'm not giving up on him. I'm just not sure I'd want to be the team that's committing to him right now. Well, and here's the thing when you were talking about I wouldn't want to give up on him. It's pretty clear, I think we can determine the Sixers have no idea how to handle it it. Listen, they got bigger stuff going on there. An awesome team.
