Leverage podcast featuring Chris Prefontaine, founder of the Smart Real Estate Coach and Leverage member.

 

After the 2008 real estate market crash, Chris and his company reinvented the way they made deals and now coach and mentor people from all over the country to achieve the same success.

 

They started doing real estate on their own terms — literally. They started doing real estate deals on terms.

 

Chris works with (a) sellers who were unsuccessful in selling their homes, for whatever reason, and (b) sellers who have time and want the most out of their home. He offers them an alternative solution to sell their home under a specific set of rules. Without the need for brokerage fees, these sellers are motivated to get as much money as they can out of their home by working with Chris and his family.

Think of leasing a car — terms deals are very similar. They also don’t require cash, capital, credit, bank loans or risking personal finances… And the way Chris does them, there is very little risk.

In a terms deal, Chris’s company acts as a middleman between a seller and a pre-qualified rent-to-own buyer...

Leverage Podcast featuring Tyler Koblasa, entrepreneur, technology leader and CloudApp CEO.

 

Tyler Koblasa has a history in evolving the digital landscape and optimizing online communication and workflows. Through his multiple startups and tech endeavors, Tyler found he was consistently faced with the challenge of adequately conveying a clear and concise message, digitally, to those he was working with. Whether he was developing a new product and needed to provide feedback or quickly explain something to a customer or client; the biggest underlying question was “How can we communicate faster?”


Fast forward to 2013 when Tyler met Max Schoening, founder of CloudApp. At the time, CloudApp was a basic screenshot capturing tool that saved content in the cloud. Then, the primary users of CloudApp were the crafters and builders of tomorrow such as the co-founders of Airbnb, CEO and founders of MailChimp, and Kevin Rose — all successful entrepreneurs faced with the same digital communication challenge. As a user himself, Tyler saw the massive potential of this two keystroke cloud app “claw” that was allowing users to communicate what was on their screen to someone else in a matter of seconds.

The rest is history, literally. As CEO of CloudApp since 2014, Tyler has skyrocketed the business and continues to evolve CloudApp’s functionality. CloudApp is now one of the web’s most popular video and image sharing platforms, even making the Top 50 Software Companies 2018.

So, What Is CloudApp?
If you haven’t heard of CloudApp before, download it now. Seriously.

CloudApp is an intelligent digital communication platform that enables users to quickly capture screenshots, video walkthroughs, webcam recordings, and GIFs in two simple keystrokes. The first key-stroke captures the content, instantly uploads it to a secure cloud and creates a short, shareable URL link. Step two, the second keystroke, is simply using the paste command to easily share the link created for your content with customers, clients, or your team. Enabling you to convey a message or visual content within seconds.

Avoiding miscommunication with CloudApp has become a game changer with the annotation feature. With one keystroke command, a user can take a screenshot and annotate the image to your heart’s desire to show the end-user precisely what they need to know with arrows, text, highlighting and more.

 

Listen in to learn how CloudApp can transform your workflow and optimize your business.

Leverage Podcast featuring motivational speaker, poet, author and Leverage client Julianna Dawson. Interview by Brittney Martinson, Head of Client Success at Leverage.

 

Julianna Dawson had big dreams that she didn’t feel possible working full time and spending quality time with her family. She wanted to finish her books, have them published, promote herself as an author, and attend more self development events. She knew what she needed to do, but just didn’t have the time to get it all done.

 

Some of the challenges Julianna wanted solved when joining Leverage included:

- Event planning and management

- Editing video content

- Social media management

- Email management

- Writing video scripts

- Researching and booking flights and hotels

- Vacation planning

 

“For me it was life changing to realize it was possible to have the job, take care of the kids, have my dreams and actually have someone to help me work on that. Leverage made it really easy.”



“It was different than before when I hired a freelancer to work with me. They wouldn’t have the expertise in all these different areas – it was really great to have leverage and all the different people on your team be able to do all those different things.”



Listen in to learn more about Julianna’s experience with Leverage and the dreams she was able to accomplish by outsourcing. Including a special preview of one of her poems from Inspiring Words: Love’s Journey!
