Nature Connection, Herbalism and Wild Foods for Radiant Health w/ Cullen Taylor Clark

The Awaken to Nature Podcast

Cullen Taylor Clark is the co-founder of Aether Herbalist and Apothecary. A young company on a mission to restore our connection to the ancient art and healing benefits of herbalism. In today’s episode we hear how Cullen took a sharp turn away from a career in corporate to discover a whole new world much closer to nature. As he ventured down this path, he became increasingly more aware of the abundance of medicinal and edible wild foods we have growing in our forests, fields and even our gardens. Fueled with inspiration and curiosity, he developed a deep understanding of herbal and mushroom medicines and now shares this knowledge openly and with passion.For Cullen, foraging is more than just harvesting edible and medicinal foods, it's a practice of meditation that deepens his connection with nature. He shares some of his top tips and personal experiences. He explains that our primal instincts are not too far below the surface and that it doesn’t take long for them to be activated and for us to tap into this ancient knowledge and practice.Cullen shares his top 3 medicinal foods and why we should all have them in our cupboards. He explains the foraging best practices we should follow to minimise our impact and rather harvest in a way that promotes growth and sustainability.We learn about pioneer plants, we hear about an amazing fungi discovery, we talk barefoot walking and mindfulness in nature and so much more!Cullen and his company is based in South Africa but the knowledge and inspiration he shares can easily be applied wherever you may be.If you are left feeling inspired to learn more about foraging or to include more wild foods in your diet then I highly recommend checking out the free eBooks that Cullen and his team have put together.Download FREE eBook HEREFollow Cullen and Aether on Instagram HEREFollow the Awaken to Nature journey:InstagramFind more episodes HEREIf you enjoyed this episode then please consider sharing  it with a friend who you think would benefit.Leaving a review on Apple only takes a few seconds and really helps other people discover our podcast.Thanks for your support!

Smart Building Technology | How to Create a Wind-Powered Hospital - Guest: Taylor Clark

IoT Playbook

A WIND-POWERED HOSPITAL? YEAH…RIGHT Taylor Clark, a frequent guest on IoT Playbook podcast, has done more smart city and smart building projects than anyone I know. But when Taylor sent me an email saying that he got an Atlanta hospital completely off the electric grid and powered by wind, I was still skeptical. “A wind-powered hospital? That’s impossible,” I thought. But after we recorded this episode, I was a believer. His solution really works and you’ve got to see it to believe it. In this episode of IoT Playbook, Taylor shows everything; the business model, the pricing, and a behind-the-scenes look at this cutting edge smart building technology. Head on over to podcast.iotplaybook.com and check out this amazing episode. I guarantee it will blow you away. What You Will Learn: How Taylor pitched his smart building technology to a hospital How wind power technology works Who Taylor made touchpoints with throughout the sales cycle The cost-savings of Taylor’s wind power IoT solution How Taylor’s technology is implemented and maintained The business model, pricing, and cutting-edge technology Taylor is selling podcast.IoTplaybook.com/podcasts/smart-building-technology-taylor-clark-1-part-3/ Wind-Powered Hospital – Innovative Smart Building Technology It is critical for hospitals to stay on the cutting edge of technology so they can provide the highest level of service; smart building technology plays a major role. Taylor Clark just wrapped up a project that will take a hospital entirely off-grid using wind power alone. He joins IoT Playbook again to talk about his latest project in-depth and continue the conversation about IoTMSP solutions and smart building technology. Taylor explains the business model, the pricing, and gives us a behind-the-scenes look at this cutting edge technology. Significant Cost Savings Initially, the hospital reached out to Taylor for information about solar power because they were planning to retrofit their facilities with smart building technology. The project would require substantially more power, so Taylor steered them toward wind power, which would cost ⅓ of the price. Once he reached the right decision-makers, Taylor walked them through the smart building technology, implementation, and the cost savings showing a complete ROI in approximately five years. The average savings for the following twenty-five years would be roughly $25M, so it was a compelling pitch at the very least. Broaden the Playing Field This type of smart building technology enables you to monitor the energy and functionality of every component, so maintenance is extremely minimal. There is a six-month lead time before the new wind wall is up and running, and the whole project is carried out with an as-a-service model. Based on the smart building technology design, mid-high rise buildings are ideal candidates because there is significantly more wind to maximize the power output, but anyone who is looking to go green is a prospect if you approach it with the right strategy.

Starting as Assistant Direct of Revenue at White Water responsible for overseeing all revenue-generating verticals within the company.

MSP IT | How to Sell Smart Building Managed Service Projects That Generate Years of MRR - Guest: Taylor Clark

IoT Playbook

SMART BUILDINGS; SMART INVESTMENTS If you’ve been listening to the news in the US, you’ve heard about the Green New Deal, a multi-trillion-dollar plan to redo the energy infrastructure of the US. Part of that plan calls for upgrading every business building in the US to be more energy efficient. In this episode of IoT Playbook, I interview Taylor Clark, who explains how he is already saving building owners an average of 40% of their energy costs using Smart Building technologies and smart MSP IT strategies. Taylor Clark is the founder of Alternegy, an enterprise-level IoT managed service company that architects and manages enterprise-class IoT projects for cities, building owners, enterprise customers, agribusiness, and more. In this episode, Taylor reveals the two key drivers for smart building success and how you can jump into the Smart Building opportunity, one of the fastest-growing MSP IT opportunities in IoT managed services today. Taylor reveals his clever method for winning business away from the biggest players in the industry – stealing business from companies 100x his size. So, just head on over to podcast.iotplaybook.com and search for Episode 9, where I’ll show you the actual Playbooks that IoT managed service providers are using to make 7-figures or more of recurring revenue right now. What You Will Learn: The challenges and processes associated with selling smart building MSP IT solutions How to prospect large commercial buildings and who is involved How Taylor is using AI in agribusiness and cannabusiness How to identify the types of buildings that are ideal opportunities Why event recognition is gaining traction in the smart building space The importance of partnerships for pricing and packaging Why IT people have a major advantage in smart building solutions https://podcast.iotplaybook.com/podcasts/msp-it-taylor-clark-1-part-2/ Smart Buildings & Smart MSP IT When it comes to smart buildings and MSP IT solutions, lighting is still Taylor Clark’s bread and butter. However, he also offers an AI IoT platform that uses cameras for face and event recognition. Taylor brings a different solution to the table based on individual clients’ needs. But with smart buildings, prospecting can be a grueling process. Typically, you have to drag your value proposition up the ladder, starting with the building’s facilities manager, then the property manager, and eventually, the portfolio manager. Difficult it may be, a large majority of commercial buildings across the globe have not been retrofitted with a modern MSP IT solution and energy-efficient equipment. So, the reward heavily outweighs the cost of sale. There is a lot of money to be made in this space. Lighting and Event Recognition LED lighting should remain at the forefront when you are selling a smart building MSP IT solution because it is the most obvious opportunity. Once you establish a power reduction plan, you can begin to look at control systems and the technological infrastructure managing the building. This is where you embed your solution for recurring revenue. Then you can explore other opportunities such as AI. Event recognition is the first step in automatically figuring out what your MSP IT solution needs to do on a large scale. This combination has been extremely lucrative in schools, agribusiness, and cannabusiness, but there are opportunities everywhere. Partner Up Taylor Clark is not a bank, nor is he a lighting manufacturer; he is the architect of his MSP IT solution. He found a great banking partner, insurer, and equipment provider to help him navigate the complex deals in this space. Taylor also recommends finding a partner who can help you tap into the ROI of your IoT platform. Your prospects are only willing to pay for efficiencies and gains and you need to make them measurable. The person who understands the clients’ needs and how to design an MSP IT solution that meets them will see great returns. If you are coming from an IT background, you have a significant advantage there. About Taylor Clark Taylor Clark’s career spans over 25 years in Sales, Finance, and Technology.

IoT Smart City | How I Sold 8-Figures of IoT Smart City Projects - Guest: Taylor Clark

IoT Playbook

AN IOT SMART CITY PLATFORM THAT GROWS WITH YOUR CLIENTS If you’ve heard of Smart Cities, but you’re not sure exactly what they are or how to approach that market opportunity, then you’ll want to listen to this episode of IoT Playbook. My guest, Taylor Clark, has completed more IoT Smart City projects than anyone I know. He has a unique and versatile IoT platform that is dramatically reducing energy costs for his clients. In this episode, Taylor is going to reveal the secrets behind a successful pitch. So, just head on over to podcast.iotplaybook.com, where I’ll show you the actual Playbooks that IoT managed service providers are using to make 6, 7-figures or more of recurring revenue right now. What You Will Learn: How to leverage your technical background to win IoT projects How Taylor managed the first built-from-scratch IoT smart city The key problems that smart cities solve and how solving those problems will help you win IoT business in any market The business model that will get your IoT smart city projects approved and funded without years of committee meetings The key decision-makers in a smart city project and why you NEVER want to agree to a proof-of-concept project The key financial partners you need in every big IoT project Why Taylor picked Azure as his strategic IoT platform https://podcast.iotplaybook.com/podcasts/iot-smart-city-taylor-clark-1-part-1/ IoT Smart City Platforms Taylor Clark is the CEO and owner of Alternegy, a smart city, smart development, and green energy company that builds a unique IoT platform for commercial properties and municipalities. Alternegy got its start in smart lighting, which opened a new line of business in helping companies cut electricity and utility costs. It snowballed into an opportunity to help construct a thousand-acre IoT smart city south of Atlanta, where Alternegy sourced the partners, found the technology, and researched the solutions. Taylor Clark made his entrance in municipalities and back into the commercial space where he now offers smaller IoT services in smart building. Show Value and ROI In smart cities, there are a lot of ways for an IoT platform to provide ROI, but lighting is the most prevalent utility so it is a great place to start. By addressing lighting first, Taylor and his team can reduce power consumption by 40-90%. It enables them to start building the neural brain while showing clients the value of converting. There are a lot of options based on topography, budget, and what the client is looking to accomplish, but the modular nature of Taylor’s IoT smart city platform makes it easier to generate recurring revenue. Solutions That Grow If you put the right IoT platform in place and it serves a specific purpose, you can build off of it and ingrain yourself in the client’s operation. Alternegy goes in there, meets the clients’ needs, shows the value and ROI, then explains how they can expand upon their new solution. The beauty of the IoT smart city solution is no matter what you’re using in the background, the dashboard stays the same. So, once you can show them a solution that does what they want and can grow with them, you will be locked in.
