Analyzing Real Estate Crowdfunding Deal (Part 2)

30October14

The Quick Load mode animation here shows an illustration of loading a deal into Valuate (crowdfunded or not) by making just four inputs (Purchase Price, Year 1 Effective Gross Revenue, Year 1 Operating Expenses, Annual Growth Rate). I wanted to run three scenarios in all, so after this initial file was created, I created two other scenarios [...]

Analyzing Real Estate Crowdfunding Deal (Part 1)

29October14

The verdict is in on crowdfunding. It’s here to stay, which is terrific for those who have not previously had access to real estate investment opportunities. If you’re an investor, and you want to stress test a deal in which you are considering investing, what variables should you be stress testing?
Everyone says “you make money [...]

Civitas in Our Downtowns (Part 2)

28October14

To create and then cultivate civitas requires a multi-faceted approach to community design with a long term view. It takes shared commitment from citizens, elected officials, community business leaders and organizations, architects, landscape architects, planners, school systems and more. It’s an addictive process requiring being in relationship to your community, taking responsibility by participating, volunteering [...]

Civitas in Our Downtowns (Part 1)

27October14

Walking around Newburyport, Massachusetts a few weekends ago I thought of a word I don’t normally think of. Ever heard of the latin word Civitas? Civitas is a latin word meaning “a body of citizens who constitute a state, especially a city-state, commonwealth or the like”. It also means “citizenship, especially as imparting shared responsibility, a common [...]

What Does Sales Success and Body Building Have in Common? (Part 3)

23October14

What advice do you have for anyone in sales who wants to be above average?

Pressure will help you stay focused. Remember, everyone else is out to win your customer.
Don’t procrastinate; you must get out, and do it. Procrastination makes your task harder and longer.
Surround yourself with like-minded people. This way, you can support each other.
Keep [...]

What Does Sales Success and Body Building Have in Common? (Part 2)

22October14

How does it relate to sales success?
I would say it relates to success in the way that you need to combine drive, work ethic, attention to detail and letting go of the fear of failing. It’s ok to fail; I look at it as a lesson learned. It paves the way to getting it right. [...]

What Does Sales Success and Body Building Have in Common? (Part 1)

21October14

Several weeks ago I conducted a sales and product knowledge training in Burlington, Vermont for Mohawk Industries. In the front row was a rather petite, attractive and outspoken young woman named Marion Posluszny. Marion is part of the management team at Wholesale Flooring in North Hampton, NH.
Marion was extremely sharp and when I mentioned exercising, she [...]

My Brother, Digital Dan

My brother is a commercial photographer, but, more importantly, he is a guy who has adjusted to the recent developments in marketing both his business and the nature of his practice. He studied photography at the University of Dayton in Ohio. He sharpened his skills, working for our father’s design studio which offered services related [...]

CoWorking and the Uber-izing of Work: Idea Space and Workbar (Part 2)

17October14

What I saw in Boston tells me we will be seeing more such places in the coming years here in Vermont and other smaller markets. Plus as an architect working in the commercial architecture and interiors space, it’s important to get out and see interesting work elsewhere, so I can best serve my clients in the [...]

CoWorking and the Uber-izing of Work: Idea Space and Workbar (Part 1)

16October14

Recently I visited Boston touring as many CoWorking businesses I could find in two busy days while also attending a lighting design conference in between. Why you ask? I live and work in Vermont. I’m entrepreneurial at heart and see technology increasingly helping us work in a more mobile manner upending traditional notions of what [...]
