Did you ever hear the story of rock band Van Halen trashing a venue because they arrived at the location only to find BROWN M&M’s in the bowl backstage? Do you know why they did that? Most people think it’s because they were a bunch of Rock Stars acting like spoiled brats. In reality, it was a very essential part of their contract which was a matter of life and death. The Promise is in the Details! Enjoy this video and story from the city where it all happened in the mid-1980’s, from Pueblo, Colorado, with Jason Hewlett 8-5-2021.

When it comes to the concept of digital transformation, we should really be focused on the term transformation. Your competitive advantage depends on how you define the terms change and transformation, as the vast majority of leaders believe they are transforming a process, a product, or a service when they are really just changing it. Predominantly, this is because most don’t know the difference between transformation and change. Let’s dive into the differences between these two competencies. Anticipation and Transformation Are Offensive Strategies Change comes from the outside in, forcing us to react and respond with agility in a defensive manner, whereas transformation is an offensive and anticipatory competency quite different from change. Whether it’s a personal transformation or business transformation, it always comes from the inside out, giving you far more control in actively shaping your future. Being agile is important when dealing with rapid change; however, no matter how agile you are, reacting quickly does not work alone. We must become anticipatory, using Hard…

First week of August and we get the July jobs report on Friday. Not likely to be a great number, but the FED has dismissed all the jobs misses so it shouldn’t be a surprise, unless the FED sees something new. I do think the inflation report next week is also likely to be a terrible number, but once again, the FED will just dismiss it with its new favorite word, “transitory” and keep right on ignoring the inflation we all see. Housing is another issue, prices continue to rise across the country and in many areas, it’s more than double digit increases year over year. While activity has slowed down a little in some areas, volume of both home sales and demand remains strong. Fueling much of that is the insane rise in rents. Last month we saw a 2% increase in rents, leading to more than a 10%…

“The higher the climb, the better the view.”  Bacotkeren.blogspot.com  Dayo Dekker began buying rental homes close to streets where houses were being revitalized and renovated.  He did not buy on the same street where revitalization was actively taking place, but he bought ahead of the path where the revitalization was headed so he could still buy at a low enough price to get a good profit from his tenants, and yet he could see his values pop up quickly as more and more other investors started buying around him and fixing up houses.  Dayo positioned himself with a rooftop view of his local real estate market and bought ahead of the curve for a quicker return on income and value.  Rent vs. Buy Decision If you are a renter in Memphis, TN, rents have gone up 13.5% year over year. That means if you were paying $1,000/month in 2020, you…
