The big move: A third of UK households to move home as COVID-19 set to change where Britons live

Romal Capital

Millions of us are set to move home permanently, as a consequence of the pandemic, citing remote working as the facilitator and quality of life as the ambition, according to new research by property developer Romal Capital. The national survey* of 2,000 households found that nearly a third (31%) are planning to change their living arrangements following successive lock-downs and remote-working experiences. This is a staggering increase as only between 4% to 5% of households, typically, move homes in any given year**. The need to move is slightly higher in the 25-34 years age category (32%) compared to slightly less in those over 60 (28%). One fifth (20%) will have aimed to move within the next three months. The ability to combine working from home and in the office in a hybrid working environment influenced more than a quarter of respondents (26%) to consider relocation. Remote working aside, over a quarter of those surveyed (26%) mentioned the need for suitable jobs in the local area. “We’re seeing a paradigm shift in how this country wants to live and work,” says Romal Capital’s CEO Greg Malouf. “Hybrid working options and lifestyle changes are two key elements driving this change in behaviour. Moreover, the temporary stamp duty holiday and the desire to cash-in on significant property price increases in 2021 have also empowered decision making. In fact, in the same period a 16% property price-hike in Liverpool alone, underlines this very bullish market. The current UK housing market simply does not match this new reality, and with these changing demands, there needs to be a country-wide rethink on meeting housing needs.” While still considering location, 29% said that a good standard of living will be the most important factor in deciding their future location. It seems however people do not want to go completely remote with almost a quarter of respondents (23%) citing road networks and connectivity as two important criteria, with areas perceived likely to increase in value (10%) and locations near hospitals (9%) closely following. People ranked Waterfront living, whether by the sea, lake or canal, as the top “X-factor” draw for their new living location followed by substantial green spaces and good community feel. Of these, over half (51%) of 35-44 year olds selected community feel in contrast to 41% of the over 60’s who opted for waterfront living (61%).

Pocono Organics Launches One of the First Regenerative Organic Grown Full-Spectrum Hemp Product Lines

Pocono Organics

Pocono Organics, one of the largest regenerative organic farms in North America, has launched one of the first regenerative organic grown full-spectrum hemp product lines and the only to carry the globally recognized Rodale Institute logo on its products and packaging. Pocono Organics’ wellness product line includes artisanal, small-batch items including tinctures, creams, salve sticks, lip balms, massage oil, popular bath bombs as well as a pet-friendly organic tincture. These products are formulated in their own lab and are available online and carried in more than 30 retail outlets, spas, and doctors’ offices across multiple states. Pocono Organics, located atop the Pocono Mountains, uses the power of USDA certified organic full-spectrum hemp extract to deliver a broader range of wellness-promoting cannabinoids - creating the entourage effect that unlocks numerous potential health benefits through multiple cannabinoids versus relying solely on CBD. “I personally know the power of plant-based supplements,” said Ashley Walsh, Founder and President of Pocono Organics. “I was diagnosed with gastroparesis in my late ‘20s. It is a very painful and daily condition where my stomach is paralyzed and I am unable digest food normally. My doctors wanted to cut out parts of my stomach, insert feeding tubes, and put me on a regiment of pills. I took a different path including an organic diet as well as CBD-rich supplements, which became vital to how I managed my condition and are part of my daily wellness routine.” Power of Nanoparticle Technology Nanoparticle technology is used in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries as a way to make products instantly bioavailable to the body and to ensure precise dosing without diminished impact through first-pass metabolism – when ingested products first go through the stomach before going to work one to two hours later. “Nanoparticle technology is a game-changer for people seeking the immediate benefits of full-spectrum hemp extract,” Walsh added. “Instant bioavailability is vital for people who want to get an accurate dose they expect. The water-soluble, nanoparticle formulation has been done for select products including one of our tinctures and all of our bath bombs. It’s not seen often in this industry because it’s hard to do and is a big investment, but the value is worth it. And, we’ve kept the price in range with traditionally formulated products. We’ll be announcing a full line of nano-particle products soon made with organic ingredients.” Power of Trust “We are focused on becoming vertically integrated which is why we have invested in our in-house formulation and packaging because it’s hard to know who to trust when it comes to high quality organic CBD products,” Walsh continued. “Our mission comes from my personal healthy journey and I want to ensure our products are accessible for all – including our pets - which make this very personal for me.” According to a study done by the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, nearly 70% of CBD products are mislabeled. This troubling statistic is why Pocono Organics is transparent in how and where its products are grown so that consumers can make an informed decision about products they can always trust. “Every hemp plant grown at Pocono Organics has been in our hands from hand-seeding to hand-harvesting,” said Walsh. “We hang dry our plants so that they retain higher levels of cannabinoids and terpenes – which makes a better-quality product. Each of our products include organic ingredients that you can pronounce!” Every Pocono Organics’ product has a QR code that allows consumers to review the Certificate of Analysis (COA) from an independent, third-party research lab ensuring there are no pesticides or heavy metals in any of the products. "I have been using Pocono Organics creams, both scented and unscented, on my clients in our spa and believe these to be top-quality products that actually work,” said Yvette Bertsch, Spa Director at the historic Congress Hall Resort in Cape May, NJ. “I was impressed by Ashley and how her products evolved from a deep desire and need for health, healing, and a better quality of daily living. Ashley’s products far surpassed me and my clients’ expectations for results, which is why I trust and use Pocono Organics.” “Kitchen Toke's foundation is rooted in the belief that cannabis is food and food is medicine,” said Joline Rivera, founder of Kitchen Toke. “Our collaboration with Pocono Organics very much fit that definition. It starts with their care in the regenerative farming practices through to the final products. Pocono Organics is a win/win for people and our environment, especially the honeybees!”\ The Pocono Organics line up can be found at more than 30 retail locations, including Kimberton Whole Foods, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, Riverwards Produce Market, Local Roots NYC, Kitchen Toke online store. “I have been recommending CBD to my patients for several years,” said Dr.Peter Hunt, a practicing chiropractor in Stroudsburg, Pa. “The primary reason is its ability to allow the body to better respond to stress and reduce inflammation. The flavonoids, polyphenols, cannabinoids, and terpenes all act together to reduce inflammation and protect the central and peripheral nervous systems. I am finding that the nanotechnology is very effective for many of my patients. Pocono Organics’ partnership with Rodale Institute ensures the highest level of organic farming that you can find, thus ensuring the highest quality products that are available.” Pocono Organics is also the only company in the world to carry the renowned Rodale Institute logo on its products and packaging as a sign to consumers of the high standards and responsible farming practices used to make these items. Rodale Institute, recognized as the global leaders in regenerative organic science and research, is a strategic partner of Pocono Organics to bring the power of soil-based farming to larger audiences. Regenerative organic agricultural practices include low-till methods and zero use of chemicals and pesticides. This farming approach produces some of the cleanest and nutrient-dense crops grown on earth – making them better for consumers – while also strengthening and healing the soil in which they are grown – which is better for our planet.

Caliber Embarks on Private Build-to-Suit School Expansion with Rancho Solano Preparatory School

Caliber Co.

CaliberCos Inc., a fully integrated real estate company, announced today a significant milestone within Caliber. The Company has embarked on a school expansion in Scottsdale, Arizona that will benefit the community and should serve as an attractive investment for its Opportunity Zone investors. Caliber recently closed on the acquisition of Rancho Solano Preparatory School, a 26,646 square foot property in Scottsdale, Arizona. The total project cost is $11.5 million and is the first venture Caliber has invested in since the pandemic started in March 2020. $4.5 million in equity was offered with Caliber’s Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund leading the investment, which was maxed out within three weeks of the offering. Commenting on the transaction, Chris Loeffler, Co-Founder and CEO of Caliber stated, “The impact from the current pandemic has touched every part of the global economy, and education has not gone untouched. Now, more than ever, there is higher demand for private education as many private schools remained opened throughout the pandemic. These institutions are providing a needed resource for parents who are unable to effectively home-school their children. Caliber’s open architecture allowed investors in our Fund, high-net worth direct investors, and a respected family office to combine forces and provide the necessary capital to build this asset for the community.” As a result of the increased demand, Caliber will construct a new campus for Rancho Solano. In conjunction with this construction project, Rancho Solano will close its small, North Scottsdale facility and consolidate it with the existing main campus in Central Scottsdale. The new campus expansion will serve all grades pre-K through 12th grade. In addition, there is an excess piece of land that is adjacent to the school that could lead to another project. Rancho Solano will lease the space from Caliber for a period of 20 years with a 10-year option. Upon receipt of occupancy, Rancho Solano will be given the option to purchase the building and will be offered that option again after the first and second years. Caliber believes that this project will produce positive cash flow as well as create attractive asset appreciation for its Opportunity Zone Fund investors. Additional information on the project can be found on Caliber’s website at Rancho Solano - Caliber (caliberco.com). Caliber is seeking additional schools with a desire to expand into Qualified Opportunity Zone locations throughout the Southwest and Mountainwest matching the goals of long-term investors to the needs of local communities. About Caliber – The Wealth Development Company Caliber is a market leader in providing individual accredited investors and registered investment advisors with well-structured alternatives to traditional investments. The Company builds wealth by forming and managing real estate private equity investments, either through individual assets or multi-asset funds.

Minuteman Press Franchise Owner Barry Landowski Sparks Local Business Growth in Germantown, Wisconsin During COVID-19 Pandemic

Minuteman Press International Inc

As Barry Landowski begins his 30th year in business this month, the long-time owner of Minuteman Press in Germantown, WI has spent the past year leading the charge to support local businesses in his community. “The pandemic has created a close bond between all small business owners around here. We’re all in this together and we need to stick together. That’s the feeling I get. No one wants to see anyone fail.” Print is Essential Barry’s Minuteman Press franchise is an essential business providing critical printing, marketing, and direct mail services. “Because I’ve been a leader in the community for so long, I’ve had several owners asking how we are doing and telling me they need us. I’ve tried to be very compassionate with them and I tell them not to give up.” Because of his empathy as well as his ability to offer high-demand products and services, Minuteman Press in Germantown has continued to remain open and stay strong throughout the pandemic. “One of the smartest things I’ve done was triple our investment in Minuteman Press International’s internet marketing program. This year, we have received more requests and orders from companies I hadn’t heard of before. This was really helpful while everyone has been on lockdown, as buyers have found us online. We then work to turn them into satisfied clients who want to continue to do business with us.” To be in business for nearly 30 years, Barry has successfully adapted his business to meet the needs of his clients. “I listen, learn, and change with the times. My Minuteman Press franchise of 2021 is a different business from my shop in 1992. Based on Minuteman Press’ recommendations, I have diversified my products and services. We added a large format printer to produce signs and banners in-house as well as a dye sublimation system and an embroidery machine for custom apparel orders.” Barry continues, “We are now a certified USPS mailing center fulfilling bulk mailing and Every Door Direct Mail orders several times per week. These services are in high demand right now from our clients looking to reach out to their target customers, and we can do the entire project from custom design and printing to mailing.” He adds, “For several years, we have also been selling many different types of custom promotional products. There are so many different ways companies can benefit from branded items, and customers always like receiving a little something extra for free.” Barry also credits Minuteman Press International for supporting him all the years he has been in business including during the pandemic. “Minuteman Press is always there for me. This past year, we have had constant communications and additional resources to help us market our business. We have amazing vendor relationships with suppliers. Every time I attend the Minuteman Press World Expo, I come back with new ideas and ways to grow. Just when I think I know everything Minuteman Press gives me incredible advice or rolls out a new product and shows me why it’s important to always keep learning.” Owning a Business vs. Having a Job Barry reflects on his journey to entrepreneurship and his life before owning his own business. “In my prior life, I was on the corporate ladder. My last position was Corporate Director of Procurement for a billion dollar corporation. I was responsible for about $250 million in annual purchases. I simply got sick and tired of the toxic corporate culture so I decided that I’d rather work hard for myself and be my own boss.” He continues, “I had a pre-law degree but had no desire to go to law. I also had a real estate license but didn’t have the time to build an empire on my own. A friend and I went to a franchise show in Milwaukee in 1991. I didn’t like much of what I saw until I met with Minuteman Press. The wheels started turning and I liked the idea of printing. It’s simple to follow and everyone is a potential customer. I knew nothing about printing or running a business, and yet here I am 29 years later thanks to Minuteman Press.” “Barry Landowski has done a fantastic job with his Minuteman Press franchise in Germantown. He truly cares about his clients and today he continues to be a community leader and an inspiration to other local businesses,” says Steve Szymanski, Minuteman Press International Midwest Regional Vice President. Rewards & Advice to Others When asked about the rewards of owning his own business, Barry answers, “I’ve had some really good times and made some mistakes, but they were my mistakes and I got smarter and tougher when learning from them. My biggest reward has been the opportunity to work with my daughter for 2 years, my son for the past 15 years, and my brother for 25 years. I probably should have retired 7 years ago, but I love to come to work.” Barry adds, “As I’ve tried to illustrate, the support from Minuteman Press is the only way that I could have started up and continued to operate for the past 29 years. They have laid the foundation and provided ongoing support, programs, and advice on products, equipment, marketing and staffing. This has all been essential to my existence.” For people who ask Barry what it’s like to get started in business, he says, “Starting your own business is like cliff diving. You stand on the cliff looking down at all of the rocks below and it can seem scary. However, once you jump, never look back, and focus on what’s ahead of you.” He concludes, “Minuteman Press will give you everything you need to operate a successful business with the exception of one thing – work ethic. You’ve got to get that yourself.” For more information on Minuteman Press Germantown, Wisconsin, visit https://www.germantown.minutemanpress.com.
