    Deal Seekers

    Calling all investors! Deal Seekers is an amazing community of like minded people who are interested in real estate investing at all levels – from beginners who are just learning the ropes to pros who have been at it for over a decade. This group is an opportunity for colleagues to get together and talk about what’s happening in real estate locally, share success stories and learning opportunities, and generally learn more about the industry from others, while making great connections and having fun talking about our favorite subject – real estate investing!

    But that’s just the beginning. This is an environment that fosters deal making and this meetup group is for serious investors. Beginners are more than welcome to join us for discussion, but understand that the primary focus of this group is to find deals, connect to investment partners and seize upon opportunities. Members are encouraged to bring deals to the table for peer review and partnerships.

    Access to hard money and private money may available to members who can present solid deals that investors like. Contractors, wholesalers, lenders, builders, and investors all have roles to play in taking a project from start to finish – and this is where you line up your power team. As partnerships form, you can volunteer for an unassigned role – and as the pieces lock into place, we will have an investment team ready to move forward on real projects.

    Hear lectures from experienced industry leaders as they share their expertise along each step of the process – from forming LLC’s, to analyzing properties , to obtaining hard money financing – you will not only get informed, but learn how to incorporate that into your own investment strategies for real world results. How many times have you left an investment meetup feeling like the information was good – but no real direction on how to implement it? This is a frustration felt by many investors who just want the opportunity to not only learn but to put that knowledge into action. Our weekly meetings will keep the momentum going so that you stay on track and motivated – and to provide plenty of opportunities to network with other investors and get exposure to more deals.

    For the year of 2017, our goal is to continue form a strategic partnerships within the group to increase our purchasing power and use the leverage of crowdfunding to get a project off the ground. To find the project, each week we will analyze a new REAL deal currently available for sale, run the numbers, and talk about the different angles of attack and possible ways to approach it. If you’re a deal seeker – Come join the club!

    Inner Ear presents The Beat Down Competitive Poetry Slam

    The Beat Down is a SLAM poetry event (NOT an Open Mic) where the winner after two rounds gets a cash prize. The charge is a $5 dollar admission to watch and $5 to compete against 9 other poets. The five buck entry fee goes toward the prize for the winner and the other five bucks to watch helps my co-host and I cover our overhead and to keep it going.

    THERE WILL BE ELIMINATIONS AFTER THE FIRST ROUND!

    After the first round, only the top scoring 5 of the 10 will move on to the second round. So be prepared to bring only your best works that will rock a crowd!

    That means, have on you at least 3 pieces ready to roll. Two to perform, and one just in case of a tie (where we will then have an extra round to see who gets the best score). Ties do sometimes happen, so make sure you have something…

    IF YOU PLAN ON SLAMMING, please TELL US ON OUR EVENT PAGE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW (not in the comments of the notice) so we may put your name on the list. Thanks, and see you at the slam!

    THE RULES: All poets will be judged by 5 randomly picked judges that BEAT DOWN hosts choose from the crowd that night. Judges use a 0-10 point system to score the poets. The poets themselves have a 3 minute time limit to read their work, anything over that limit and they will receive a one point deduction for every 10 seconds they go over.

    To combat judges posting high scores to friends who may be on stage, and to make it fair, the hosts DROP THE HIGH AND THE LOW AND KEEP THE MIDDLE THREE for the total in each round. (60 points possible for two rounds).

    Poets are NOT ALLOWED to BRING PROPS, WEAR COSTUMES, or HAVE ANYONE WITH THEM ON STAGE. ALL SLAMMERS MUST PERFORM their own ORIGINAL WORK by either reading it from PAPER, MEMORIZING IT, OR GOING FREESTYLE to see who can move the crowd with their words and performance.

    ALTHOUGH WE CALL OUR EVENTS “COMMUNITY FRIENDLY” WE DO NOT CENSOR THE LANGUAGE OR SUBJECT MATTER OF THE POETS!

    The slam “Sign Up List” is put up during the FIRST WEEK OF EVERY MONTH before our show on the 3rd Friday and is on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS. So be on the lookout for it and sign up early due to the influx of readers wanting to participate. Once all slots are filled, we will no longer add any names to the list after that.

    A Father's Power / Supporting Fathers During Pregnancy and Premature Birth

    Fathers want their children to have every opportunity to thrive starting at birth. However, fathers can sometimes feel left out or helpless during their partner’s pregnancy, birth and after birth period, especially if the birth is premature (born before 37 weeks). Many fathers may be unaware that preterm birth is a serious epidemic that can have life-long consequences for their children. For our June Collaboratory we honor Father’s Day by speaking with dads who have experienced a preterm birth about what advice they have for future fathers, and their recommendations to clinicians and doulas about best practices for engaging fathers in the pregnancy and birth process.
