Fresh "VA" from John Reid
"You know, we're going to talk to all the Virginians who were going to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, even though the Democrats were gonna talk to find out what was on their mind as they prepared to nominate Joe Biden and you know whoever it is that he's going to pick As VP, and then the DNC pulled our credentials and said, Now can't come and I don't know. I mean, I don't know. I don't think it was just because it's W. R va. And they know where conservative radio station Talk radio, but I don't think it was that I think they were really just kind of collapsing. The idea of the convention. Too many people. Especially the theme of Democrat politics right now is fear fear fear related to the pandemic. I mean, everything must stay shut down. I think they're political reasons for that, because I think they're trying to tank the economy. And have people think that Donald Trump is somehow responsible for the virus. I think there's some really nefarious reasons for the position. That they are taking politically with people like Ralph Northam and Levar Stoney. And you know the other Democrat hacks who were in office, but, uh, I'm still going To Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I've never been there, so I'm very curious to see Mill Milwaukee, Wisconsin, so starting on Monday Knock on wood, barring something crazy happening. I will do the morning show every day from a different city in route to Milwaukee. So I think we're starting Monday, assuming I get there to Kansas City, Missouri. And I think, Adam did They say that the lieutenant governor, the governor is going to talk to us on Monday. Somebody big is going to talk. They might be able to talk to us. OK, so that would be fun. Right Eye. To be honest with you. I don't know who the governor of Missouri of a lieutenant governor of Missouri or Kansas. Is right now, but one I think somebody's going to talk to us from from the capital. So that's kind of cool. Then we go to Omaha, Nebraska, and then I don't know someplace in Iowa. I guess I gotta I gotta figure out the whole route. But eventually I intend to wind up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the Democratic Convention. Whatever that may be. And I think it's going to be pretty entertaining to do kind of read on the road. The presidential addition, the Great American Road trip S O. That will be happening all of next week and then and I hope I get to talk to Jeff in the afternoon on his show and just kind of update Who we've run into along the way is anything open. I am praying, though. Let me tell you something. I was telling a guy yesterday. Oh yeah, my trip. I'm so excited about it. This is a chance for me to visit some states that I haven't been to before and to talk to people about politics along the way, while still keeping up with what's happening in Richmond and he said You know if you're going to stop in ST Louis, if you gonna stop in Indianapolis, if you're going to stop I mean, for goodness sakes, and Milwaukee Are you worried about riots? And it had, you know, I just envision a peaceful America. That's that's for the most part for the most part with Cem Cem. Notable exceptions, I must say, but for the most part I've never worried about hopping in the car and driving across the country, and I've driven to California a couple of times down to Florida. I went to school in Texas. I drove back and forth to Texas. I've just never worried about it gotten some speeding tickets that were unpleasant. But I've never worried about it. And I guess I kind of need to calculate that end to my trip this time. Like what? Make sure I don't go into the wrong neighborhood or, you know, be super cautious. I think everything is still safe, but had contemplated that so it's going to be an interesting trip. Next week to the DNC and then back to Charlotte, North Carolina. Where Republicans are going to be doing something I guess. Formally voting to nominate. Donald Trump doesn't sound like he's giving the speech there. So as soon as he announces what his plan is for the speech Then maybe I'll update the travel plans for the following week. But I'm really excited about it, and we will do the best we can with wherever we are. I I tend to make things pretty exciting regardless, even if it's a boring location, So that's coming up next week. Now you know what's coming up. Next is Jeff Katz. It's his vacation week and the guy Is still willing to come on the radio for giving Tuesday. Now explain this to me. Why is Jeff Katz on forgiving Tuesday? Well will give you the details. He's running for the honorary mayor, ship of Beaver Dam. Has all the benefit charity. That's next here on news radio W. R. V.

Of these businesses is corre thick and the one thing to understand. One thing that's that we don't often think of about small business is Small business is most commonly the way that a person significantly raises their family's financial position, right you.

Now, you can also lose everything right but you know you start out I'm a plumber I'm eight va see or I opened a restaurant and or I'm a processing paychecks or whatever like that, and if it catches you can grow and you can. You can increase your position the the the best ladder. Economically and again education is the key allows you to have a job lousy to build up but unless you're education like medical doctor or something like that, if you can be successful in a small business that's a very good way up the economic ladder when you knock that ladder out from underneath one third of the people who are on it, that's a pretty heavy hit.

Process Tools for Amazon Sellers with Will Christensen
"Ladies and Gentlemen Boys and girls Mr Mann and whoever else is listening. This is the ten K. collective, because part of the family of mazing podcast. You can see the decals behind me. If you're watching the video and today we're with woody will christen of data was a mason dot com, who are the experts at automation and integration that we're going to plunge straight in on the tools Amazon says will welcome back to the show. Thanks it's good to be here and let's deal with these tools for Amazon. Tell us I used at prosper show while ago, so that was really cool. You're obviously aware of how the world works settlers. What are these tools that you can share with us? Honestly tools are. I kinda Geek out on tools. I'm in general I'm kind of a software nerd. NERD had an assistant who came to me once and said you know. Will I feel like you are an individual? Who is the Tony Stark of software? Like you're? You're just in the middle of all of the tools, so I'm going to mention a couple here and I'm GonNa give you like a one liner. Here's the tool. Here's why I love it. So, honestly, the one that's kind of up on my screen right now and so it's kind of in my face is slack and I find that a lot of Amazon sellers haven't adopted slack yet, and the reason I think a lot of them haven't adopted. Slack yet is because they haven't realized how inefficient email and just regular Google hangouts is. I find a lot of people using skype to communicate with their with their as your different individuals that way I love slack and its ability to create channels to create a context where everything goes. Basically, it's an instant messaging platform that allows you to do direct messages back and forth between individuals, and then it allows you to create public and private channels where you can discuss things like key metrics that the businesses going on, and it gives. Gives you a way to keep the context of the conversation going so for example we have a slack channel access needs and anytime someone needs access is something they go into that channel. They Post. Hey I. Don't have access to this Amazon seller central account. How do I get access? And then we go through that process to to figure out exactly what that looks like an and get it where it needs to go if that makes sense. Absolutely I'm just discovering. Slap myself. I'm very guilty of using. skype is the primary meeting for communicating with Va's and. It's OK until you get to the point where you try and dig into some information from weeks ago and then it comes. That's the thing like I'm short video about this. Did I even tell you about the? What was the link for that again? And then you nightmare? You described so elegantly before. Say Anything that helps you get organized. Upfront is a great thing for sure so my. Virtual Assistant. I when we use like I have an entire channel dedicated to the video. That I create for her so I've I've I use a another tool. WE'RE GONNA mentioned hair called screen cast, defy and screen cast if records videos and drops those videos into Google drive folder us another tool called. Zap, beer to automatically pick up those videos and push them into a specific slack channel so anytime a record video i. literally title it in a certain way pops it out into the Slack Channel and tells her what she's supposed to do with it a minor. That is just loving this. Because I use screen falsifying. I've used got a lot of videos on. There are US or got slack now of it up I haven't really been vigorous into my stuff I'm like Oh. Wow, I could do that I can say totally see how that would save me that. The assistant 'cause batsman three days and guys Mike, whereas all yeah got to send it. T- sorry. This is behind the. Title to get up and so I've got it. Set up now so if I don't put the word in all capitals private in the title of the video, it automatically goes to my va, and says hey. I was too lazy to title this, so please Bug me about what this video's even four and where it should go, so if I record a video, it goes to her period unless i. I write in all caps in the title private. Zapper is totally capable of listening for that word private and be like. Oh don't send this to her. So if I wanted to like, make video from partners, talking about everybody salaries or something like that I wanted to be a little more private. A totally could do that and I made Zap, Zapper drop it into a channel and away it goes and. And then I'm not hunting through a thread of threads imagine how much conversation goes back, and forth between me and my executive virtual assistant, its way to have channels man I would be in all sorts of trouble, so I try to use direct message communication with another individual I. Try to define those channels and say this is information that we're probably not going to need again. This is about chatter about. About. What's going on if I have information that we're going to need to look up again? I try to create a channel the to associate with that client, or whoever else it is, so we've got a lot of channels. Assist I'm not going to get a bit overwhelming I? Guess, but at least it's a lot less everyone undifferentiated stuff. Okay, so we got slack. Go Screen! Falsify because up here. What else your faith tools, so another one is the tool we're using right now to communicate zoom and a lot of people have heard of zoom, but maybe it will especially now they've probably heard of zoom, really powerful, very stable tool in terms of of video calls and getting face to face with people and getting some of those other pieces out of the way I just really appreciate. How stable is they've run into their growing pains, but even with the growing pains. It's outpaced several others that I've used.

Rob Garnet One More Wave
"Welcome back to the coastal. Athlete. Program I'm your host. Shep today. We are joined by very special guests. We are joined by the record surf operations a US Navy veteran. Therapy advocate, a waterman, a good friend of Joe and be good friend of mine, because we're all part of the one more way, family, Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome to the show Rob Garnett Rob. How're you doing? Then fantastic thanks for having me am. Champ and Danny Danny met you before but SHEP. We've talked a couple of times on the phone, so it's cool to be some of the zoom. At least on Zoom. Danny is our producer, and so he's going to be helping out doing the editing and mixing the episode down and things like that Joe is going to be joining the podcast just a minute. He was transitioning from from pork. Chop actually up to his apartment. He's coming back doing some surf therapy sessions. My guess would be out of Pendleton or something like that. As usual on Wednesdays, Joe is on the road living the mission so rob. Before. We get too deep into asking you. Questions I just have to ask when it came time to transition out of your career in the military, did you? When did you know that you wanted to get into surf therapies specifically? And when did you know that like this was going to be a special moment? I. Think when I was so I retired from the navy and two thousand fifteen and so that was kind of win Wave, actually becoming nonprofit, and so I had a couple of buddies Alex and Kyle. We can talk about later. That were trying to get going. They've been doing it kind of. guerrilla-style for before getting official, and so I kind of knew about it before retiring. And then it kind of kicked off. For ME I. I was volunteering here and there with more ways. I had some other gigs so right when I retired I started doing government contracting jobs I did that for a couple years before spending a lot more time volunteering than later coming on. As employees. So, Joe I just ask some general questions. Trying to do is cut those questions and stuff at the back, so feel free to take the lead, and you have the floor sounds it sounds like you talked a bit about something about diving for the navy and then sports. Now we're talking about why I came the navy. Sorry to repeat it, but. I came in hoping to be Navy diver. I've been a commercial diver for about six months in Galveston. Texas after drop Nettie. Collagen thought that'd be a good transition and When I tried to join the navy, they said the Dow closed and that they dove at butts that I should go try that. Sounds like a good idea and so. They had me take a job. That would allow me to go to buds. became a parachute rigger, so I went to school i. By Mos got my. Parachute rigger on. And then off to buds I, not really no one else doing. My parents were hippies so military people. No one wants to be joined. The Navy so really did not get into. So I imagine was a little bit of a surprise to show to buds. Learn what that school was or. Just just the suffer faster not quite ready for nicely. I imagine imagine that's quite interesting. SUFFER FEST! I also can imagine that doing the work that you did. Know you and I kind of a little bit of your background. I've imagine that really helps. Set you up for the mission at one more wave and getting on top of things and getting things moving. You maybe talk a little bit about that. Of maybe some things you learn from the Navy that you apply now at one more. Share just. Learned a lot towards the last couple of years at Miami my time in the service. How can help people in much really from? I've been injured several times while on active duty at spent time at the. At Naiko which I know, you're not talking about for jokes. The National Intrepid Center of Excellence Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic says Maryland runs, and so I started my treatment probably. This is probably two thousand ten zero five years before I retired, and so I have a lot of time to spend time with other folks that had had you know whether it was PGA s or All the kind of things that were happening to people are not super physical, but burying paxil sleep issues, and so I got exposed to lots of different therapies, and I just knew man. This is can't wait to spend more time doing this. And, so I was really excited because I learned all these things in the navy, but how can help other people at learned a lot about the va have across his work for compensation took care people how some days are better than others. Some states are Oracle, and and what? I didn't realize. Your percentage rate affects how you get treated to I was treated well, but I'm on a different ratings on people's. It's tough so I definitely learned a lot, you know. Early on about how to help other people do this and it really as you've seen Joe out. Watch people's faces. When you get to give him some equipment whether it's a board or a boogie board or people that have had nothing. He's got a wet suit like our friends in. Santa Cruz just the amazing transformation that happens. Not only from equipment, but from the community that step we all share the Melcher that we love. Not Picking up cigarette, butts or cleaning off the flight deck, but you know going out von and be talking a little trash, each other encouraging each other and just share. That shared experiences is powerful so. Yeah I definitely can attest that shared experience than to be fair. No ship Naidoo usually pick up cigarette butts, but easily on the beach and they drive us nuts, so that's why. It's quite funny. Were you a surfer before you've got out of the military and got with one more way? Has. Started at middle, school on off and then did it alter the teens long morning. And then took several years off and then kind of into it later on, so yes. We're always at the beaches, kids. We're always bodysurfing. Trying to collect fins like my friend Joe Against. Debbie me and my fin collecting hoarding abilities. That I have for quite
Hangar Flying to Favorite Airports
"Let's kick things off. and. Let's start sort of sort of closer to home of the three of us come from different parts of the country and different experiences. all around, but Let's start here in the mid and just kind of round. Robin sort to work our way out so tom that you kick it off. Of your favorite One of your favorite Midwest airports. Sure well. Obviously, we all. We all know and love wittman regional airport here in here in oshkosh which. A lot of people don't get to experience during the other fifty one weeks of the year, but it's a very vibrant little airport on I guess it's kind of unique in that you know we have this giant runway lay out that. You know in in many ways serves the needs of the tenants airport, but also another ways you know uniquely serves the needs of Va.. So it's, it's a very big airport for. For what it is, that's kind of neat but. But yeah kind of going a little farther afield of of. I all A- Wisconsin That is sixty three Charlie if I remember correctly. I look. Central County, airport. Is a little grass strip about twenty miles thirty miles, maybe north west of of Oshkosh. That has three grass runways including one. That actually has a parallel grass taxiway. And plenty of space departure airplanes, they even have a little bit of a campsite with a with a fire ring and. Some showers that are available and stuff like that, so you can come in and camp but it is the absolute epitome of a grassroots airport, and the really neat thing that they do at Iowa is on every Friday. They host a lunch for members of the community as well as members of the classic car community locally. And just fly in there pay a couple of bucks for lunch and on a good day in the summer you'll see I think their record is similar north of eighty airplanes. So that's like a really really amazing annual fly in that we do every every week up here. That place really is so much fun. like you said multiple grass runways and number one. When you when you told me that you're you're airstrip. Airport has a grass runway. You know already sold when tell me has more than one than I. Just swoon a little bit. That's so cool and they've got their. Big Open sort of hangar style clubhouse, and there's a million airplane models hanging from the ceiling and pictures all around all kinds of cool history, and you know a great cast of characters. Food is always amazing. Now one thing that Tom United talked about this before, and we've. We've been up there. Many times in order for them to to make this work into serve food without necessarily. Having to call themselves restaurant you know they're still. They still have To adhere to and everything of course, but basically you join. The is the Central County Sport Flyers. Central, county flyers associated. Center County Flyers, association, and a lifetime membership is something like eleven dollars, and so you get there? You show your membership card, and then you are part of the Social Club and you can, you can eat at. Boy It's it's well worth it. You still pay for the lunch. But, just a just a blast to go up there. See what kind of airplanes come in. You mentioned classic cars being a big thing up there. One of the biggest car shows in the country, if not the biggest actually held up there, and I allowed kind of out of the way out of the way spot and that culture pervades around. I think so many of us who love airplanes can appreciate. Cars and motorcycles and other vintage machinery, to yeah, and you mentioned the CL-. The Central County Flyers. Association I believe under Wisconsin Law. If you're in a social club, it has to have some kind of a common purpose so in order to join the Central County Fires Association you must. Attest that you are dedicated to the promotion of General Aviation. That is something that I don't think any of us would have any trouble doing. and. I'm willing to go on record. Yes, we can. We can manage that. So Chris, how about you? What what are you got in the Mid West you like, so? I'M GONNA turn slightly south and talk about the fond lack airport Fund lack airport. I spent a couple of days at it a couple of weeks ago because they let a stage, the Huey there as we're moving our new edition into the museum. And I didn't realize how busy that little airport is that we had a couple really nice clear days and I was blown away. That was a that was. A Busier airport does few days. I, was there, but what really stands out for me is the early trips when I would come from Pennsylvania to hear you know fund. Lack was the first. SORTA signed. That something was different. You heading towards something great, you know you're you're coming up forty one. It's just on the left side of forty one and like you'd go by this normal general aviation look airport and there'd be like a hell diver sitting next to the road. See. You knew that like that's not normal. You know and there'd be a Corsair there or and. It was it was basically overflow for the show and They basically had their own air show down there. I mean you just walk around looking at some of the coupons just park down there either you know someone rides or waiting their turn to get into the field here Nash cash in but it was always that I like I remember. It was probably pretty dangerous because we would always likes trainer. I'm probably not pay close attention to the roads. We should pass and fond lack airport just to. See what was out, and what was there and it really really helped peak the excitement of close out ten hour trip

As Grocery Deliveries Soar, Startup Raises $10 Million to Unseat Giant Instacart
"As a result of COVID, nineteen instinct cart has become the Goliath of grocery delivery businesses as virus fears. Keep us out of grocery stores. We've been relying on food delivery mainly, INSTA- carts GIG workers called shoppers to keep a stocked up. This April INSTA- cart sales were five times greater than a year ago the Financial Times reported that I've popping growth hardly escaped. Investors Notice INSTA-. Cart raised another two hundred twenty five million dollars earlier this month that evaluation, approaching fourteen billion dollars. That's nearly double its valuation only eighteen months ago, perhaps needless to say instant carts thirty-three-year-old. A poor va mater is now a billionaire. But less you jump to the conclusion that Mehta can sit back and relax safe in his seat at the top of this rapidly growing industry. Thank again. A small startup called Ling is coming rich share of the grocery delivery business, though tiny compared to Insta- card investors are also taking notice last week dumpling raise six point five million dollars for a total of ten million dollars in funding so far founded in two thousand seventeen dumpling helps people create independent delivery businesses, the difference between shopping for instance card and dumpling is simple, but fundamental dumpling delivery workers own their own businesses Insta- cart workers are subcontractors paid by the shopping trip. Dumplings Co CEO's Joel. Shapiro Innate Danna make no bones about what motivated them to create dumpling. They felt sharing economy companies like Insta- card were treating workers on fairly so they created an APP that helps perspective entrepreneurs go into business for themselves to create a new business users pay a ten dollar fee for access to dumplings services and listing on the company's site where customers can search for shoppers. Bhai Zip Code. Shoppers paid dumpling a five dollar fee for each job or when they get busy enough switched to a monthly payment of thirty nine dollars. Dumplings model is not unlike Amazon's two year old partner delivery service, which also helps people start their own businesses in their case exclusively delivering Amazon packages supporters of the independent model say self employment in the delivery industry offers a number of advantages including higher revenue and insulation from the anti-god worker legislation that's cropping up all over the country so far fueled in part by the pandemic. The models seems to be working dumplings. Founders say customers or ordering twenty times more groceries than they were before in nineteen, and the company says it has helped. Two thousand people start their own delivery companies people. People like Kelly Vilchez in Orange County California. Vilchez operates under the business name shop girl. Oh, see. She told the L. A. Times that she's earning three to five thousand dollars a month. She's clearly a dumpling success story. According to the shop girl OC facebook page villages is featured in dumplings advertising campaign in contrast Insta- card has been plagued by shopper complaints since the onset of the coronavirus in March and April, many walked off the job, demanding better protection against Covid, nineteen higher tips and sick leave the Winston card initially claimed the strikes made no impact. Courts reporter Michelle Chang Rights. That's debatable on June. Fifteenth the Seattle. City Council voted unanimously to require that. GIG were companies like Insta- card and Grub pay their workers an extra two dollars and fifty cents hazard pay per order. That requirement is intended to last through the end of the COVID nineteen civil emergency declared by Seattle's mayor. Insecure has vowed a legal fight. Similar legislation is pending in Philadelphia New York and San Francisco Chang writes. It is these sorts of ills shortages of personal protective equipment, low pay and lack of sickly. The dumpling claimed self employment solves, but entrepreneurship isn't easy dumpling delivery workers have to do their own marketing and find their own customers, and they're on the hook. If grocery buyers failed to pay, which dumpling says is rare, that said any platform that helps the millions of unemployed grow their own wealth. Is appealing to investors, and it's interesting to note that dumplings mission says nothing specifically about the grocery business rather they say. We WanNA. Make dumpling trusted partner that helps anyone launched running grow their own service based business. Sure dumpling starting groceries. Be Questions. Where will they go next?

"Have automatic underwriting authority, which means we do everything in house. It does not have to go to the Va. there are certain cases in which. We would have to submit to the VA, but that's all case by case basis and you know like if to veterans are buying a house that are not married, you know. Great example would be San Diego California. The home prices are massive right and if you're on active duty as A. E Five you can't afford the home loan. One individual, so you're gonNA, ask another. A fellow. Whoever right from your your team?

You can have an occupying Kobe. Co cosigner on your loan on your home loan using your va benefit. A lot of people don't don't think that that's possible. So anyways. Can Go yeah I think that's. That's a big myth. That's especially the agents that are out there. That have no idea of never have been had a client who use the va loan is just got. Brad said earlier not something that's been regurgitated from agents of the past to the agents of the president, and if it wasn't for age like myself out there, you know Brad is educating me. He's let me know everything about the VA Loan I've been to multiple classes with him so. Not. Only am I getting other agents to come to learn from Brad, but then at the same time when I have a VA offer I'm educating those agents to let them know 'cause that's. Their. Their biggest concern is how long is it gonNA, take for shoot I put. Ninety days is closed window no I. LAUGH AND CHUCKLE DUDE! It's thirty days or less, the national average from twenty, nine, thousand, nine hundred. National Average twenty three days application close now as a realtor Ken.

So Friday last Friday and then also this past Monday Monday's. got. We got cleared to close in twelve days. We will third the closed were they were even ready to close on the property. We got clear to close today that I think was probably within that same maybe fifteen days, and we didn't schedule the close until June third, so we're ahead of schedule on that. Yeah, so so like. I say this quite a bit who you work with matters especially right now. You as veteran. If you're trying to find a house, trying to earn trying to gain that piece of the American dream that you have off for, you need to go into this like you're approaching battle, man I mean. There's no other way to explain this like win us. Marines would when we go to war, we march forward. With pride and confidence, because we know the Marines on our right and left have the same training as well. Right so I know that they have my six. No matter what and that's how you have to approach home buying process, so if you're going to go into battle, you WanNa make sure you have the cream of the crop.
