I'm Danko Souter Roschin with us right now. We've got Kathleen Graham. Hello, Kathleen.

Unknown Speaker 16:11

Hello, how are you this beautiful day?

Speaker 1 16:13

Oh, it's great. It's great. It's great. We're here in the studio. And as our audience knows, and if you're new with us here on Ask the neighbor every Tuesday, Kathleen Graham from cannabis nurse.com joins us in the conversation and we talk a little bit about some of the things that cannabis has done in our state and all of the medical pieces around it on Tuesdays, join us between nine and 10am. And you can tune in to cannabis nurse calm as we discuss all the different parts and pieces as we break down the cannabis industry. Today. Kathleen, I wanted to talk a little bit about the methods of administration slash consumption of cannabis. You know, for a lot of folks out here that are listening to the show. You know, for many, many years, this was an illegal substance many, many years here in Michigan and in America, it was taboo.

Unknown Speaker 17:16


Speaker 1 17:17

So any administration was frowned upon. And he even you know any of it. So in today's world, there's a lot of different ways to consume the cannabis or the CBD. And tell us some of the most popular ways and, you know, really some of the futuristic ways that we're doing it as well.

Unknown Speaker 17:45

Yes, there are. Some of the different methods of consuming cannabis offer little to no intoxicating effects. And they include cannabis infused topical lotions, or juicing raw cannabis. And while traditional forms of consumption includes smoking, we recommend other methods. And as a medical professional, we recommend smoking the least. But as we know, smoking joints and bowls and barns for bongs are the most traditional form of cannabis consumption, right? That usually is involved with dried, cured cannabis flour. And you can chop it up and roll it into obviously a joint and smoke it or a bond and do that niche. Usually they have water in the bowl, or the bogs to help decrease the amount of harshness from the smoke, right. So there's other methods that you can look at. And nowadays, I know outside the vaping controversy, and now that they have that fixed vaping is another option that you can do instead of the combustion smoking. And that is you can vape flour or oils. And it just it doesn't bring it to the combustion temperature it brings it to a heating temperature to create a vaping. So it bypasses the carcinogens and the byproducts from burning the leafy material. So that is important for people with our lung diseases. So if you are considering smoking, look at vaping instead of the combustion method.

Speaker 1 19:33

Well that's this. This is a lot of a lot of things have changed over these years and cannabis administration consumption for some of our folks that are listening vaping is what you're doing when you you're taking. We've seen for some years now the vaping of tobacco. It's the same as the vaping of tobacco but you're using Only the cannabis cannabinoid product in there. Is it CBD and THC in those or is it primarily THC? I mean, how is that ministered both ways from CBD to THC and vaping.

Unknown Speaker 20:16

They have both, but it's primarily either a THC or a CBD product, but rarely is rare. But you can find a one to one CBD and THC vape cartridge.

Speaker 1 20:31

What would that be good for

Unknown Speaker 20:35

somebody that is looking for an isolated product instead of a full spectrum product. And you can do, it's good for people that want that as needed, I need something that's going to be effective right now. So this is something that works immediately and lasts for one to two hours. And then the time that somebody is going into crisis, if they can take a puffer to off of a vape cartridge, and then follow it by taking an edible product, that vape medication is going to help keep them until that edible takes effect. And that that's one of the things we were going to talk about a little on later on the list. But an edible product is also available in a multitude of different products and including candies, and cookies. You can even infuse them into your regular foods to consume edible products. So they come in a lot of different forms when you're talking about the edible products is important to be aware when you eat an edible product because it is subjected to the first pass metabolism where the Delta nine THC converts to 11 hydroxy THC when it goes through the liver, and 11 hydroxy THC is three to four times more potent. And that's where we get people that have the adverse effects like paranoia and maybe hallucinations. So we want to be careful when talking about the edible products.

Speaker 1 22:12

Yeah, I think you got to be careful with all of this, you know, even even when you're dealing in topicals, it could it could damage your skin or maybe there's some irritants that you might not be aware of. I don't know how how that affects but had has there been any, any noticeable things that you've seen from does it affect some people where it doesn't topically work for them?

Unknown Speaker 22:40

I have it. So that's another big point. Topical cannabis products are generally really great and they work at the area where it's applied, it doesn't reach the bloodstream. So you're unlikely to fail a drug test if you're just applying it topically. But that being said, sometimes these topical products are infused with Eucalyptus. And there are people that happen to have a mint or eucalyptus allergy where it burns their skin and causes either a rash or outright burning of their skin. So it's important when you're talking about buying a topical product. What is in that as some other products will contain lavender or camphor and it's important to know do you have a sensitivity to those scents and if you do not to use them because it could cause either an exacerbation of your asthma symptoms or cause irritation to your skin if you're allergic to that. But in general, topical products are amazing and work great to decrease pain at the site applied

Speaker 1 23:56

at the site applied. Are there also topical products that you would use for feeling the CBD or taking in the THC?

Unknown Speaker 24:07

I didn't understand what you were at is

Speaker 1 24:09

there like is there a slow release type of patch or product like there is like a nicotine Yeah.

Unknown Speaker 24:16

Yes you can apply. They come in topical patches and they come in either CBD or THC or combination of the both. And then they have a CBM one that helps with sleeping but these are great. I actually have a patient that is a member of a bike riding club and he absolutely loves to ride his bike but he says by the end of the time that you know they go out riding all day on Saturday is back is killing him and it makes it where he doesn't want to go out and enjoy his bike club. He puts on where those CBD patches in the morning and he said is completely different. You He has no pain by the time the day is ended, and he now fully enjoys going back out and venturing around with his bike club. So, patches can last anywhere from eight hours to 96 hours depending on the patch that you get. And this is important that patches have uptake agents. So the THC could make you a little bit intoxicated, and it does reach the bloodstream so it could make you fail a drug test.

Speaker 1 25:31

Okay, good to know, these are all really good things to know. Because when you're administering cannabis, in today's world, there's there's a lot of options. There are a lot of options. And we're discussing that right now with Kathleen gramm from cannabis nurse calm, spelled ca n and a bis nurse.com. Katherine Graham is a registered nurse and a cannabis expert here in the Midwest. And we're lucky enough to have her coming onto our show between 9am and 10am. On Tuesdays Eastern Standard Time, so on 690 Am w NZK. You can also catch that on very detroit.com. And listen to that, during that time by clicking on the W NZK stream. So anywhere in the state actually you can catch the stream of this show. So if there's any friends out there that want to share that information about Kathleen Graham and how you can make a virtual appointment with her and discuss all not only what type of product but also the administration and how your current prescriptions may interact with these products and also the type of administration we're talking about the methods of administration today. We've talked about the first one is the actual raw consumption of cannabis. We talked a little bit about that. We talked about smoking, we talked about vaping. We talked a little bit about edibles. And then we talked a little bit about topical. Do you feel like we talked enough about the raw juicing the juicing raw cannabis?

Unknown Speaker 27:21

No, I don't thank you for mentioning that. Again. raw cannabis can be blended in a blender or wheatgrass juicer to create a juice that you can consume, you can actually put it in ice trays and freeze it for easier dosing and administration is also because it's not decarboxylated it is the acid forms so it won't get you high. It should not get you high at all. It could make you a little bit tired, but that's highly unlikely. And so there's a lot of benefits that you get from the THCA and CBDa that you get from this juicin And if you're into juicing, this would be really good to incorporate. The downfall of this is usually somebody that is juicing is growing their own cannabis right inside the state of Michigan we have that right to grow 12 plants of our own if we want to. But it takes that fresh plant in order to juice it.

Speaker 1 28:31

Are you juicing the leaves?

Unknown Speaker 28:35

You can you just the whole thing, the sock the leaves, everything goes in it. People juice the flower buds too.

Speaker 1 28:45

So interesting. We learned something every week here with Kathleen Graham and we've been talking about the methods of administration of cannabis. We talked about the raw juicing. Option juicing raw cannabis we talked about smoking vaping we did not touch on dabbing, but why not just touch on that before we let you go?

Unknown Speaker 29:08

Exactly. Dabbing is what is done when you vaporize cannabis concentrates, okay. So concentrates are called dabs or extracts and they come in a wide variety. Some of them are called shatter wax sauce, butter, they can come in isolate or distillate products and a lot of these are you use in a banger or was called in a porcelain nail or titanium nail in these nails are heated to a certain temperature. You can either use a blowtorch or you can get an electronic one that has a steady temperature for you. And you apply the concentrate right on that nail and then it's that vaporized and you inhale it This, these are very high concentrates with an average of anywhere just 60 to 99% thc. So it can cause people to think it can cause paranoia. But it's also very effective for people that have severe pain that they cannot get enough cannabinoids in them any other way. This works really well or somebody with Tourette syndrome that needs that I need about one or two puffs of high concentrate, to get me over to manage what's going on with my disease because nothing else is working.

Speaker 1 30:40

Boy, what, you know, again, we touch on so many different illnesses that cannabis can help with and every show that you do every time that you call in, I learned something new and I hope our audience does too. Thank you so much, Kathleen for joining our show today and every Tuesday between nine and 10am. Kathleen Graham from cannabis nurse comm Kathleen Graham is a registered nurse and a cannabis expert.

Speaker 1 35:40

All right. Welcome back, everybody to the show. My name is Danko. slitter offski We are here on 690 Am w NZK coming at you every day Monday through Friday 9am till 11. Except on Thursday, we're only going to be going till 10 o'clock on Thursdays. So be aware of that. You can also text us at 330333 work. Right now we got a call from Sharon. Hello, Sharon.

Unknown Speaker 36:08

Hello, my friends. How are you doing today? Oh,

Speaker 1 36:11

excellent. Sharon from the Grange. Welcome back. It's been a long time since we've talked. I want to see how you are. Thank you for calling. And, boy, it was the summer I think when we talked last.

Unknown Speaker 36:24

Yes, I really had a rough year last year. After having COVID. A year ago now, I had heart problems. I had problems with swelling and eating and everything else you can think about. And it's just been December when I finally am back on my feet a little bit. We're still dealing with one issue for health wise. But I'm praying very hard that that will be taken care of shortly. And I was lucky enough to lose 30 pounds in the last three months to try and help myself to get better.

Speaker 1 36:56

Oh, good for you. So what did you do to lose 30 pounds.

Unknown Speaker 37:01

I rearranged my diet again, I'm now on a high protein, low carb diet. Hardly any salt, salts and sugars.

Speaker 1 37:10

And that's been working. So you've been eating a little differently? A little bit differently. It sounds like so are you still working with the Grange? I'm sure you're doing stuff there.

Unknown Speaker 37:20

Even though my health was not good. I did a lot of work from home by the phone and sleeping more than I want to. But yeah, the Grange is still working very hard to do a lot of good things. We found a place which is Carl arts and scraps in Detroit, where we've been trying to work with them somewhat, the VFW hall of Detroit areas, we've been working with them, getting clothing, getting blankets, getting art supplies to them, and helping out even some homeless people. We found a family that has been without a real home to live for almost a year now. They're they're living out of a hotel, and they found jobs. But they're still without a car. And they got two young kids, they're still trying to bring up oh, boy, I struggle on this road. And you know, hotel is not cheap.

Speaker 1 38:11

No. So how are you? How are you getting help for this? How do you get the help?

Unknown Speaker 38:18

Believe it or not, I'm asking for requests. Every once in a while somebody will bring in foods that can take him food clothing, we were able to supply him with coats and scarves and hats for the winter. We did find some extra cash to take advice and gifts for them. And taking him to doctors. I mean, just simple things that we can really afford. Because we don't get a lot of money right now with our pandemic out there. Fundraisers are hard to do places are closing down and opening up and then closing down. So it makes it really tough.

Speaker 1 38:52

Well, that's what the radios for, you know what I mean? I feel like the radio is that is that that that place that's always open. And a place where you know people can call in and let us know what's happening and how others can help because people are listening right now that probably can help that family.

Unknown Speaker 39:13

That would be so nice. You know,

Speaker 1 39:15

I'm guessing they're saying

Unknown Speaker 39:15

they're very gracious and loving person. They'll do what they can. They're even what I would call great Christian because they have the faith and trying to get to church even though they can't drive.

Speaker 1 39:29

Well, it sounds like a family you're trying to help and they're trying to help themselves and tell us a little bit about the Grange and what the Grange purpose is because I know we have we've talked about it on our show before but we've got new listeners here all the time, you know, and different people tuning in. So let us let us let our listeners know a little bit about the Grange and what do you do and how they could support it.

Unknown Speaker 39:53

We're celebrating another Centennial this year. I believe we're hitting around 100 We're in 75th. year are further than that. And yeah. And the thing that we were started with seven people in one small little kind of state back in those years and spread through all the states of Michigan, our largest one is still in California in New York. And who would ever think California would have a grave so huge when we're actually rural, not rural area, but we're Mark countryside people. But you know, they found that everybody needs help. And our biggest goals are community, and then agriculture and evolving legislation. That's one reason why you got your mail delivered from the city to the suburbs, because we fought and said, No, you can't deliver it all the way out.

Speaker 1 40:49

Right. So So before, so tell us about that. In the days they weren't mailing it outside the city?

Unknown Speaker 40:58

No, you had to go into the city to get your mail.

Unknown Speaker 41:00

Oh, when

Speaker 1 41:03

was this?

Unknown Speaker 41:05

Oh, back in the 1800s. Okay. Yeah, I mean, 76? I think it was, or even earlier than that? I'm not sure.

Speaker 1 41:13

So the Granger has been fighting has been fighting for rural rights for a long time is what I'm hearing? Oh, yeah.

Unknown Speaker 41:19

In your food labels, you know, tell you when there's like nuts in them, or where it comes from. That's our fight, too. We've been putting that in, in, in right now. They're trying to take those away from us. I don't know how many people out there have allergies. But I know I'm one with certain allergies, and they start taking those labels away. I might be in the hospital more than I want to be because the labels tell me when I can eat something when I can't. And it's as simple as MSG. If people know what's MSG?

Speaker 1 41:46

I mean, how can they try to take away the labels? I mean, who would want to take away the labels unless you're trying to hide something?

Unknown Speaker 41:55

Well, that's just it. Are they trying to hide something? Or is it because they cut the cost? Right? And that's the bottom line, they say, well, we'll be able to keep our costs down if we don't have to do all this stuff.

Speaker 1 42:06

Right? Unbelievable. You know, it's a weird world. It's a weird world. And I think it's more than the cost, I think it's like, you know, basically trying to fool you to buy a product that doesn't really have a, you know, what you're looking for, and you can't really sit there and, and drill down each product, you know what I mean, to find no information on everything. So that's a really noble cause to keep that going so that we as consumers know, what's in our food when we buy it. You know, I mean, that's a simple, simple thing. And it's funny how these large I guess, packaging organizations, you know, all are, you know, are trying to put away the truth, you know, and they're fighting in legislation to hide the truth. That's really what's happening. That's what I feel is happening, why else would you want to not have labels unless your product has bad stuff in it, and you want to hide it, so that the consumer will buy it unknowingly, and spend their money for a product that's not good for them? You know, so keep that fight up. I love the fight that you guys are fighting. You're helping community, you're helping consumers and agriculture, like tell us on the agriculture tip. What's, how does the Grange help Well, in agriculture, and

Unknown Speaker 43:27

how big organic gardening is now? Yeah, I was only a kid I was this would be back in the early 70s. My dad was trying to educate the people about agriculture, as well as into organic agriculture. Because we were putting so many pesticides out there, we were taking and doing this and doing that, to make everything so perfectly beautiful, that we were actually harming our own food. And my dad was a big person in the Grange as well as my mother. That's how come I became we were a family, we joined as a family, my brother and sister belong to it. And I just hope more people start joining, because these are fights that we can fight one on one with, compared to sometimes have bigger things that there's only one person nobody else helping you.

Speaker 1 44:18

Well, you know, that's why I think that there's a lot of folks out there that might have some time might have some ways that they can help the people that you help, you know, so I think that you know, this is a good place to share that message. So how could people get a hold of someone to help at the Grange? How does it how do you start the process? If someone's listening right now? They've got extra time on their hands. Maybe they want to do a little donation. Maybe they want to help in an event. How do they connect with you, Sharon?

Unknown Speaker 44:49

Well, at this time, I'm been using my phone number for people to call with, which I don't mind, because at this time, we don't have a high tech person I call them to help us with our phones. So stems are not computer websites and things that we're hoping to crawl back up there, you know, sometimes you go down, then you got to go back up.

Speaker 1 45:07

And that happens that happens in businesses and nonprofits and times like this, especially, you know, where

Unknown Speaker 45:16

the information person, you're the information, give me a call, okay. Then I can take and send them to the right place to talk to the next person in our organizations, because, like I said, we have a lot of area we cover and we have a lot of people that are members and non members. Some of them are too far away to take in how to be a member. You don't have to be in the city. But do you know if you're up north? Well, you can't be down here for meetings and stuff. Right?

Speaker 1 45:43

What is your number then? Can we share that to the audience? 4734474805690569. Again, that's 734-748-0569. Sharon. Karen is on the phone who wants to talk with you? Is that okay? If we connect it up?

Unknown Speaker 46:08

Sure. All right, when they call me just tell them that they heard about me through you.

Speaker 1 46:13

All right. If when you call Sharon from the Grange, let them know that you heard about her and the Grange from ask the neighbor. Her phone number, again is 734-748-0569. If you are looking to help a family looking to do some donation work, give her a call. This is Sharon from the grain 7347 for 80569. All right, we're going to connect up Karen right now. Hey, Karen, how are you?

Unknown Speaker 46:42

Good morning. Hi, Sharon. Good morning.

Unknown Speaker 46:45

Hello, Kate. Nice to hear your voice.

Unknown Speaker 46:47

And nice to hear yours we were worried about because we hadn't heard you. Glad you're on the mend the road to recovery. But it it kind of breaks my heart when you were talking about homeless family living in the hotel. And you said they were a good Christian people. And they're, you know, trying to do for themselves. But the way situation is now, I was thinking maybe you've already answered my question. But is there a way we could send a little cash donation or something? And if people don't feel comfortable with the idea of cash, maybe they could send you cash? And you could turn it in for some kind of gift card or something?

Speaker 1 47:34

What about Bitcoin? That's a little too

Unknown Speaker 47:43

much most of our nonprofit organizations would say, if you want to send in money towards ordinations, send it to the organization and then they would buy gift cards and something the reason why not everybody in this way, but they might try to spend it on things that are not needed for the family like clothing or food. So Ray do gift cards to them instead. And so that's a great suggestion and thank you for letting the others know that it is always best that way. And if you're going to send money to the Grange, we prefer checks and make it out to the grades 389.

Speaker 1 48:18

That's our number range. The Grange 389389

Unknown Speaker 48:22

Is there an address to that?

Unknown Speaker 48:27

Sure. If you're ready, I'll give it to you.

Unknown Speaker 48:29

I got 114835 at EC K LD off road.

Speaker 1 48:43

Can you spell that word or that? That word again, please?

Unknown Speaker 48:47

The road echoes Eckle F.

Unknown Speaker 48:53

I know where echo throat is I'm in Livonia turns up this way too. Yep. I bet you were neighbors kind of close in your own Westlands. This would be in

Unknown Speaker 49:04

the actually the Grange is the Westland Plymouth Grange. We originally started employment, but we get so much outreach in Westland that we became the Westland Grange, great. Westland, Plymouth Grange.

Unknown Speaker 49:17

Oh, okay.

Speaker 1 49:18

So this is Plymouth. Yes. For the address.

Unknown Speaker 49:23

Okay, Plymouth. Yeah. Okay. All right. So let me see if I Yeah, we

Unknown Speaker 49:27

have to give up. We had to give up our building about 20 years ago, because it was just too costly to keep a building that was too small to rent out and stuff. So we're doing things out of people's homes now.

Unknown Speaker 49:40

Okay. All right. Yeah, I understand that. Yes, yes. And especially if it's a smaller group than it had been 50 years ago.

Unknown Speaker 49:50

Okay, we have over 160 members at one time in our chapter.

Unknown Speaker 49:55

Oh my,

Speaker 1 49:56

what is it down to now?

Unknown Speaker 49:59

I'm afraid we're down to About 2520

Speaker 1 50:02

members. Well, you know, like there's still a good point

Unknown Speaker 50:06

to begin. So that's good. Yeah.

Speaker 1 50:09

And I mean, the your organization and what it does, I think it's, well, such a well rounded organization, you're doing events, you're helping people that are homeless, you're helping with consumers and community. So what a great organization, I wanted to double check, what is the zip code that that people could send to or a 217048170? All right, so this is

Unknown Speaker 50:36

so it's the Grange, 3891. And then they address is one four? A No,

Unknown Speaker 50:45

no, there's no two one way okay.

Unknown Speaker 50:48

I'm okay. It's 14835. Yes. Is that correct? Apples Road in Plymouth. Great. All right. And I just make the checkout to the Grange. A 389. Yes, please. Yeah. Okay. Is, can I specify, like with a little note,

Unknown Speaker 51:11

oh, please do? Well, we, we understand that some people are just out to say, maybe get food or to do our dictionary program. We had to hold back two years on our dictionary program for the third graders. We feel saddened about it, but with the pandemic we understood. And so we're hoping to get the dictionary program back on its feet again, we delivered well over 600 dictionaries a year to the left five schools alone, down to Detroit, we took some two now, even up north to if you have a communities up north. So it's our biggest, biggest program. So somebody might want to just give to the dictionary program. I'm sad to say at this point that we did lose our director of the dictionary program to COVID. Last year. It was really devastating. He was only 45 years old. Wow, he was just put his life back together for a family wise and then Ellison, he's gone.

Unknown Speaker 52:10

Oh, my gosh,

Speaker 1 52:12

that's, that's a sad story. Yes, it is. We've heard a lot of sad stories. I mean, this last couple years of people, you know, so

Unknown Speaker 52:23

make sure his memory goes on. And by putting the program back together, and hopefully finding somebody to step up and work with it.

Unknown Speaker 52:31

Alright, so I could put like a little post it note on the check and just put sure family in need or something. If you

Unknown Speaker 52:37

don't mind, make sure you have an address there. Because we always like to send thank you notes to those who have given us anything.

Unknown Speaker 52:43

Oh, that's not necessary. But I guess

Unknown Speaker 52:48

part of the part of the feeling good our community like, yeah, you know, not enough people would say thank you just for the little things.

Unknown Speaker 52:58

Right. Right. And, you know, it's people are going through hard times now. I mean, you think even if somebody's got $2 to put in an envelope or something, and then if 100 People sent $2, well, then that you've got $200. You know, it doesn't have to be a big amount. But yeah, no, no,

Unknown Speaker 53:20

no, every little thing, Trump. That's right. And I have a little jar that I put in, I put all my change in and I gained quite a bit of money in a couple of weeks. Pretty much just in that. So yeah,

Unknown Speaker 53:34

yeah, I put, I put my quarters in one thing. But now my two smallest grandson's run over and they know where they're cute. They're like, Oh, we got $3.75. So,

Speaker 1 53:54

okay, you might be able to buy a chocolate bar now with 375. You know, the way the price is?

Unknown Speaker 54:00

You might be

Unknown Speaker 54:02

part of our world right now as the prices keep going up and up, and we keep getting lesser and lesser. Yeah.

Unknown Speaker 54:07

Yeah. Well,

Unknown Speaker 54:09

it was good talking to you, Sharon, and maybe we can pass. You know. I hate to see people going through tough times, as you say they're, you know, trying to do the right thing and everything. So

Speaker 1 54:25

sometimes the world is a little tough on us, you know, and I'm uncertain.

Unknown Speaker 54:29

I know. It's terrible time. Yes, yes. Just love

Speaker 1 54:33

and pour into a prepared crust

Speaker 1 1:19:44

and pour into prepared crust. That sounds super simple.

Unknown Speaker 1:19:51

It's very simple and delicious. If you like chocolate,

Speaker 1 1:19:55

I mean this is a great recipe. It's simple. I love chocolate and I love the simplicity of this one thing. Yeah,

Unknown Speaker 1:20:02

because I made a recipe that called for, you know, a lot of them called just for the whites of eggs, and then you don't know what to do with the yolk. So this time I had the yolk slipped over and I remember this one, so I made that in a hurry.

Speaker 1 1:20:17

I bet you this one is rich and delicious. It is good. Awesome. Thank you so much, Peggy for that recipe and okeydoke all of your contributions to this show. We really appreciate every time you call. We love you. Thank you so much. Okay, bye. Take care. All right, that was Peggy she recited a simple recipe for us. Right now. We've got Billy Whitehouse on the line. Good morning, Billy.

Unknown Speaker 1:20:41

Good morning. Danko. How you doing today?

Speaker 1 1:20:43

Excellent. Excellent. Thank you for calling into our show. This is your first time calling into our show. But people know about the White House name.

Unknown Speaker 1:20:53

Well, we've been in the business in the real estate business a long time I grew up in the business. I tell people I've been in since I was 10. Yeah, I work with my mom and dad and sister. And we're a team, the White House, the White

Speaker 1 1:21:03

House team. So um, how can people get a hold of you or connect with you online? Before we even start the conversation?

Unknown Speaker 1:21:11

Yeah, well, we're in all the social media channels. And then our website is white houses. That's White House with an SI the n.com Ross on Facebook or Instagram, just search the White House team and welcome up.

Speaker 1 1:21:23

Nice. What a great name you have, by the way, Billy, I gotta just say, Man, how many people have the White House as their name? Come on?

Unknown Speaker 1:21:31

It's a cool day, but really proud.

Speaker 1 1:21:34

A sweet name. And you don't have to spell it? You know? I mean, no, it's easy. White House. So family's been in real estate a very long time here in this Metro. And that gives I think your company an advantage because of the history and the knowledge of the demographics, the shifts of going up and down. And what are you seeing in the marketplace right now, in real estate?

Unknown Speaker 1:22:02

Well, what's going on in the marketplace is we really have a supply shortage. So since 2008, the recession, the builder system, not keep up with with building. And so numbers can vary, but they say anywhere from four to 6 million houses in the United States we're behind. And they're really trying to figure out how to handle that. They say we can't build our way out of it. But that's really what we have to do, we have to figure out how to have housing for people.

Speaker 1 1:22:29

I mean, it's such a weird, weird time, you know, the prices are going up, you're getting less for the money. And there's not even inventory enough to buy. And there's a new crop of people that are marrying getting married and looking for homes every spring, right. So there's a whole new, there's a flow of new inventory demand, this spring, and this summer, more people are going to be looking for homes, right? And there is

Unknown Speaker 1:22:57

and suggestions I would give is when you're looking for a home, you really need to be aggressive and proactive, because the competition is out there. And you know, when you get in that in that space and are really going for it, you have a much higher chance, unfortunately, sometimes I find a buyer, we have to go through a couple of processes of them bidding on something and losing it before they realize how really competitive it is out there.

Speaker 1 1:23:23

So if you like something you better jump on it quick because things are going and people are they are people still bidding above asking price.

Unknown Speaker 1:23:31

Yeah, there's, there's a couple things. Yes, there are bidding above asking. So if you're looking for a home, you need to be proactive with looking at the home. So that means connecting with your real estate agent with a realtor and actually getting a feed directly from the multiple listing service. Because if you're waiting until it gets over to Zillow, or realtor.com, it's already been out there, it could be anywhere from 15 minutes to 48 hours has been on the market. And other people are already looking

Speaker 1 1:23:58

at that crazy times crazy.

Unknown Speaker 1:24:01

So what you want to do is you want to be the first one. And if you like something you want to be already be prepared with a pre qualification letter from a lender, and you want to create your offer packs and be very aggressive in your possession.

Speaker 1 1:24:13

Now, let me ask you this. What do housing prices look like? They're gonna keep increasing over the next two to five years.

Unknown Speaker 1:24:24

I have seen no indicators of them going down. Okay, how is it the shortage of supply? You know, that is the factor that is driving up right now we have an increasing population. And that's not going to decrease. So the demand is going to continue if that increase, but the supply is not keeping up. So the basic economics say that's what's forcing everything up right now. Well, that's what we had in 2008. And why we had that recession is because there was an actual crash. There was a subprime lending situation where people were lending more money than they should have been. And that's what caused that recession. But the federal government has really put some very good, you know, oversight into today's borrowing. They're very detailed when they do qualify someone for a mortgage, and they're very thorough in their documentation. So that's being protected. Now, the problem is, is there's just not enough houses to buy.

Speaker 1 1:25:17

It's wild. I mean, so if somebody wanted to list their home right now, they could call you. And you could give them an analysis of what its worth is and what you would list it for. And then your team would market that property.

Unknown Speaker 1:25:31

For sure, not only what I share pricing information, but I would also share marketing information. Because the idea is you want to be totally prepared when you come to maximize your exposures, the day you hit the market, right? That you want to have all of your digital assets, your photos, your virtual tour, your videos ready to go. Because what you're looking to do is you want to get it out to all those third party websites and all those buyers at the same time. So they get very excited about it. And then they all come in to see your home.

Speaker 1 1:25:58

So boom. Yeah. So again, that's white houses.com. Yep. Okay, my

Unknown Speaker 1:26:06

air, you can email us as the team at team at White houses.com.

Speaker 1 1:26:12

Wow, that's nice and easy to do. Alright, so, um, another thing that we were talking about when we we were talking actually in front of Detroit, bowled coffee at Eastern Market when we saw each other a couple weeks ago. And I had asked you to see if you'd like to come on our show and talk about the real estate market. And we specifically we're talking about a couple areas, like in Detroit, right. And in this Metro, there's some areas of where there's homes that need to be remodeled, right. And there's some opportunities there. I feel like that people could make a lot of money. If they do that talk, talk to me a little bit about that part that you're focused on. Sure. So there is

Unknown Speaker 1:26:57

still a lot of inventory in the Detroit metropolitan area that needs some work. And there are various loan products out there that people could, you know, have that work done. There was like a two or 3k loan, which allows people to buy a home, renovate it, and then they did one single housing payment when it's all done. So that that's one product out there. They're also for people that are renting. Michigan has this fantastic program for first time homebuyers. And they call someone a first time homebuyer, if you haven't owned a home in the past 36 months, what you can do is you can get into a home for 1% down. And the State offers a second mortgage, which is zero interest and zero payments until you sell the home of up to $7,500 towards your prepaids and closing costs. So in reality, almost for the for the price of a security deposit, you can own a home, and there's no reason to be renting nowadays.

Speaker 1 1:27:51

That's crazy. I mean, so let me let me just walk this through again, in my mind. So I can come in with as little as 1%. So if it's a house, that's $100,000, I could come in with 1000 bucks, and potentially buy that house. If I'm a first time homebuyer,

Unknown Speaker 1:28:11

you can you can it uses the same criteria is either an FHA or conventional mortgage, but then then it gets sent over to the state and the state looks at it and decides that they approve the deal. And it really is a great program. And actually this this is a program that the state did so intelligently, because every mortgage is created, part of the part of the mortgage profits is paid back into that fund. So the fund is self funding. It'll keep going it costs no government dollars, it just funds itself.

Speaker 1 1:28:46

Wow. So some interesting, interesting things happening in this marketplace. What are some areas that you like around the city? Bill?

Unknown Speaker 1:28:55

You know, I love the city and the entire metropolitan area. I mean, we live in such an exciting space, that is really transforming itself and reinventing itself. And every day, there are new projects coming online or new areas, new homes that are being renovated and being built new businesses that are being open. I mean, it's exciting all around, it depends on you know, what's your lifestyle? What do you like to do? That's really what you look for you look for a home and what you like to do on a daily basis. Where do you like to shop? Where do you like to eat? What kind of privacy would you like? And that's how you probably select the area of where you'd like to live.

Speaker 1 1:29:30

Yeah, some people want more of a more community vibe, where you're sitting on front of the porch and you're interacting with neighbors, some people don't want that. Some people want to pull into the garage and not come out. You know? And so that's all right, either way is okay, right. I mean, everyone's got a different way of living. So there's different properties that have more lands more or less land. All kinds of really, really unique products. So you You guys are selling and in helping people sell all throughout the metro. Is there? Is there a range that you guys go by? Or

Unknown Speaker 1:30:09

how far we focus on the Tri County area? So we're in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne County. Beautiful.

Speaker 1 1:30:15

And how long has the business been in business? The White House business?

Unknown Speaker 1:30:20

Well, you know, my dad got into business in 1978. And I say, I got into business in 1980. When I was 10 years old, you go into business?

Speaker 1 1:30:29

Well, it's an interesting business. And it's never boring. You know, real estate is always on the move. And we're always looking for insight on that industry. So you're saying that our there's probably some people out here listening, that would be like, Okay, I'm interested in a 1%. Down situation. And I would love to buy a house, if I could do it with 1%. Down. What is the first step? Where do they call?

Unknown Speaker 1:30:56

Yeah, well, actually, just just drop me an email at team at White houses.com. Okay, and let me know your phone number. And we'll connect and I'll connect you with a couple lenders that work with that mister. first time homebuyer program, okay, and they can have conversations, figure out which lender they feel comfortable with, and go from there.

Speaker 1 1:31:13

Beautiful. That way, you can just email team at White houses.com. And that's going to give you just let them know what you're looking for that way it also that's the email that they could use to list right if they were if there was someone out there. That's, you know what, I want to list my house, I'm ready to sell, maybe I'm looking to upgrade? Maybe I'm looking to go a little down in size. So you could help them with that. Does that the same way to get a hold of you? What if some of our folks don't email? What if our some of our folks don't email? Is there a phone number

Unknown Speaker 1:31:49

of the business support? Of course, yeah, they can give us a call our the direct line to our team is 24854081008100.

Speaker 1 1:32:01

Excellent. So good to talk to you today, Bill. It's been just fantastic. Is there anything else you'd like to let our neighbors know, before we let you go?

Unknown Speaker 1:32:12

Well, it's really, you know, if they're thinking about making a move, seriously, think about doing it sooner than later. Because year by year, houses continued to appreciate. And the other factor that is going to be coming into play quite soon, is the interest rates. So as interest rates go up, the actual their buying power will be less and less, a little adjustment of a three point or a quarter point increase in the interest rates really takes down how much mortgage they can they can qualify for. So it's important to get into the market before the market outstrips him,

Speaker 1 1:32:45

right. So it's a weird time. And I'm telling you, I know that you're running around trying to make deals and get people into houses and get more inventory out there.

Danko Sutter offski, Monday through Friday 9am to 11 Except Thursdays till 10. All right, we're gonna go to a piece right now. That's about clarity.

Unknown Speaker 1:43:36

Here we go. Overwhelmed. That doesn't feel pleasant hanging in the air does it? The word itself brings up feelings of failure and isolation. It's also the word sadly that I hear the most from new clients. I have a friend and client who is successful, runs a great business is very active in the community and is honestly the most positive person you will ever meet. And yet, at our first coaching consultation, she told me that not only did she feel overwhelmed, she felt paralyzed. When I asked her to elaborate, she brought up words like shame, failure, fear and isolation. I assured her that she is not alone. In fact, in homes and businesses and relationships everywhere, overwhelm has become our society's dirty little secret. We fill everything. We fill our houses, we fill our cars, we fill our offices, we fill our smartphones. We fill our storage units, we fill our minds, and we fill our hearts. With more than we can manage. We think that the more will lead to happiness. But all it does is perpetuate the overwhelm. Because of this dirty little secret, the word clutter has exploded in our nation's vocabulary. From books to TV shows to magazines, you can't even check out at the grocery store without seeing the word clutter plastered over every single magazine cover. But what people don't realize is clutter is not just our stuff. It can be those physical things that clog clog up our homes. But it can also be digital, mental, emotional, or even spiritual. The physical clutter is the typical that we think of the closets that are overflowing the garages that can't hold cars, the storage units that have become a billion dollar industry in this country. digital clutter are things like the 10 2050 80,000 emails and inboxes that I see on a very regular basis. It's also things like file saved on your computer without naming conventions, so you don't know what you have, and you spend a lot of time looking for things. mental clutter, can be fears. It can also be voices, whether it be from a boss, or a spouse, or the news, just anything that bombards us. Emotional clutter can be from patterns, negative patterns that you don't even realize that you have. It can also be all those I can't voices, I can't lose weight, I can't quit my job and go out on my own in business. Now, spiritual clutter isn't talked about as much, but it can be caused from things like a lack of forgiveness, or a lack of peace. Those last two, the emotional and the spiritual clutter, they can be very subtle. Those can also be the most paralyzing. Basically, clutter is anything that keeps you from living the life that you were meant to leave anything that keeps you from living the life that you want to lead. Anything that stops you from accomplishing your work and enjoying your life. Now, it may not seem possible, but all types of clutter, all the ones I listed, have one main costs. I have a wonderful friend, mentor and business coach Barbara Hemphill. And she trademarked a phrase that sums up this universal truth. Clutter is postponed decisions.

Unknown Speaker 1:48:04

Think about that for a minute. It fits in every circumstance, the physical stuff, you walk into your closet, or if you can walk in, maybe you try to walk in, and there's a whole section of clothes, and perhaps the postpone decision is am I really going to put forth the effort or the time to try to lose that last 10 pounds and fit into this whole shelf. Or perhaps the postpone decision is am I going to clean out my storage area. So I can take these things and put them in bins and then rotate by season. Paper papers, a huge one that I deal with, we pick something up, we put it back down, we pick something up, we put it back down, one pile becomes 10 piles, and then your boss is coming in or you have friends coming over for dinner and you push them all in a bag and put them in the closet. Digital, you do the same thing with email that you deal with paper, you open it, open it but you've not making decision. Sometimes decisions are easy, just delete or reply or put in a folder. But for some reason, we postpone them. And then we get to the point we don't even want to open up our computer. Now I always had a very good handle on the first two, the physical and the digital clutter. And I understood how the other ones worked with my clients because very often there's an underlying reason that things got to the point that they did. But I didn't truly understand how those affected you and your life until I got stuck. In 2012 I had heart surgery. I had a valve defect that I'd had my whole life. And I had been told you'll live into your 80s No medical intervention go You're fine. Everything's great. Well, the year leading up to my surgery, my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer Given a very short time to live, and my oldest son was hospitalized for suicidal thoughts, my heart, figuratively, and then literally broke. So by April of 2012, I was in heart failure, and I had surgery. Now I flew through, I was the model patient, I was only in the hospital 48 hours, I was up walking, I was doing fun things. I completed a half marathon 11 months after heart surgery. So everything looked great. And I was getting a lot of compliments, that I was stuck. I had massive amounts of mental and emotional clutter. My mental clutter was fierce. What if it didn't work? What if it breaks again? Why am I having these stupid, crazy, dizzy spells? Why do I still need a nap every single day a year later? My emotional clutter was guilt. Why am I still here, and other people aren't. And let me tell you those two rolled together to make some really nice spiritual clutter along the way. So now don't hate me when I tell you this part. But my house is very, very neat and clean almost all the time. And I had a client who was quite the opposite. She was depressed by her townhouse. She hadn't had people over in years, except for me to try to work on it. And we became very close very quickly. And so one day, I was commenting to her that besides this stuff that was dragging her down, she had a vibrant life. And she was doing fun things and learning and continuing her education and going on trips. And I sort of prompted her a little bit. And I said, Imagine what you could do without all this stuff weighing you down. And man, did she zing me. Because she said, Look who's talking. And she said, you keep telling me about ideas that you have for your business, and things you want to do. And she said, and you're not doing any of them, you are staying stuck. Awesome. So we challenged each other. And I must say she got through her issues a lot faster than I did. But I started facing it, I stopped postponing the decision to look at the fear and postponing the need to deal with that guilt. And so a shift with me. Now, I don't know what all of your postpone decisions are in some of those areas. Perhaps you also have a fear that you're not facing. Perhaps there's someone that you need to give forgiveness. And you haven't extended that forgiveness yet.

Unknown Speaker 1:53:00

But what's the answer? The key is make a decision. Right? Some are easy. Two weeks from today, we are cleaning out this garage, some are grand, I'm going to drop out of school, move to California and write a novel. Some are minuscule. Every week, I'm going to delete to sales emails or to unsubscribe from to sales emails. But the key is, it's for you. Your Clutter of any type is not a moral sentence. Guilt is not going to help whether from someone else or from yourself. So everything you do in these areas needs to be for you. And for your sanity. There's a saying change is a result of action. An action is the result of a decision. So that means that you have the power, even in the midst of that horrible overwhelm to the point of being paralyzed, you have the power to affect change by making a decision. Now it has to have an action just like with the physical stuff, you got to box it up, bag it up, take it to the donation center, you know, take it to the curb, whatever it may be. For the others you need to take an action also whether it's talk to a good friend, get out in nature and meditate journal, whatever it is, but there needs to be an action tied to it. I heard something years ago and I love how it applies here. And that is give God something to bless. In other words, do something, move forward. Make a decision take an action even if it's tiny and the universe will reward you with momentum. The bottom line is ultimately the quality of your life is determined by the decisions you make about your stuff and about yourself. So do something move forward some clutter is going to come back both the physical kind the emotional That's called life. It's going to keep coming back. But if you make those decisions along the way, and Don't postpone them, you will ultimately move from overwhelm towards what we all want. Peace. Thank you. Alright, DJ,

Unknown Speaker 1:55:18

yeah, that was from clutter to clarity. And that was Carrie Thomas. Yeah, some
