Why Stefan George Is Optimistic for Crypto in 2023

"So first up, we have a thread from Stefan George, this came out on January 10th. He writes why I am optimistic for crypto in 2023, what will drive blockchain demand and what projects to watch out for in 2023. Markets are down, but fundamentals are strong. To get out of the speculative bubble, connecting blockchain to quote the real world will be key. We have to decouple demand for blockchain from pure crypto intrinsic demand, making it part of everyone's daily transactions. If people were to use blockchain for real payments or actual banking, demand would not depend on hype and speculation. There are two main trends, which will unfold in 2023. One, more real world assets, RWA, on chain, making them part of the DeFi ecosystem. Two, integration of blockchain into the railways of old world of payments and banking, making transitioning seamless. Real world assets have come a long way. USD C and USD T are leading, but there is a demand for more. Backed 5 is about to launch the first fully backed stocks, ETFs and fixed yield products as ERC 20 tokens without any restrictions making them fully compatible with the DeFi ecosystem. Centrifuge is already bringing real world assets successfully to DeFi and recently hit $100 million of total value locked, proving the demand to use real world assets as collateral in DeFi. While there are many options for USD backed tokens, EUR has always been neglected. Main area is here to change that with EUR E and tight integration into the cipa banking infrastructure. Today you can issue your E with a simple C but transfer instantly.

"Do you have hopes for VeChain next bull run? Yeah, I think it'll do well, I do. Back in June of 2019, so I want to try to get me to be one of their influencers. They want me to run a note on their network. That's pretty funny, isn't it? I said no. All right. You're looking at, yes, the campaign initial coin offering was held on token distribution. Beginning of pointless 18. I see a price 22 cents. Where's the date? 22 cents. Wow. I mean, that had to be that had to be probably March 2018, I believe. I know march 24th, 2020. Token still started April 2018 and lasted until March 2020. There you go. So they were selling started in April. My first email was in May from them. So there you go. Their sales started in 2018, guys. So continued all the way through March 2020. Yeah, fascinating. But I mean, you could own salon in 2019. Yeah. Right? Yeah? Yeah, so you could buy it and hold it and trade it. Yeah, I bought it in 2019. Thank you. So guys, when you don't know the history of your own coin, you need to do some more research. That gives me confidence that you're not capable of making great decisions, whether or not Solana is a good investment or not. If you don't even know the history of your coin and this is the community you're sold out for, I just really encourage a lot of these people that came in in 2020 and 2021 and 2022. If anybody came in and 2022, and you're sold out for a community, you know, every single thing about that project to make a good decision. If something happens, you're going like happened to Solana and FTX, you need to be able to make an informed decision whether to stay in or stay out. So what were the super chats? I grabbed him for Q&A. Okay. All right, moving on, we gotta fly through the rest here. Let's see here. This is fine. Blah, blah, blah, blah. A crypto payments company wire reportedly shutting down due to market downturn. That's interesting. Do you remember the big thing with wiring and crypto dot com?

"Like your stop loss strategy, your favorite charts. We're doing more training content on the channel. So thank you for the super chat. We'll get to that stuff. Yeah, we'll clip those and turn them into shorts. Okay, there we go. A hundred crypto lobbyists prepared for the fire their lives as crypto or as Congress resumes. Can you come to New Jersey? We are coming to New York. So come check us out in New York City and Philadelphia as well. So I Philadelphia closed there. Thank you for super chats. Cryptocurrencies will be a hot topic as U.S. Congress resumes. So make super chats. I know. I know I can't even do the show. It was okay. Scotty Barr and hey guys, three years of HODLer currently 6 months into a yearlong DCA board in the bear market. Want to learn about training is there a course for swing trading beginners in the bit lab, Ricky's paid Discord better thinks. I would say Frankie's Discord is something that definitely go check out. We're developing a lot more of that in the bit lab over the next 6 years. The build up Discord, though, has a lot of really active traders. And they will teach you how to use the indicators and I would say to both are very solid if you want to learn how to train. Okay, let's see, battle line, drum between lawmakers and against the fledging financial industry. Ron Hammond tweeted this and then Bret growing house commented on it. This weekend, krugers and crypto, the first day of the 118th Congress has arrived. It's no secret. The crypto industry is in the crosshairs of Congress after the FTX fallout. FTX founder of Sam bankman fried has gone from political donation darling to public enemy number one on Capitol Hill. And so just kind of an update on our bill is we are kind of shopping our bill around to some different politicians. Right now, some more politicians and we already have looking to tweak some of the language to get it where it needs to be. And your protocol videos coming out this week. So there you go, teddy. Or Roosevelt Taylor, that is. So the point is, we're not as in a big of a rush right now. And we're registered, but we're tweaking some of the language before we make it public. So Ryan told me last week, 30 to 60 days on that. I'm really ready to move on this thing. It's driving me crazy, but we want to do it the right way. Here's the big thing that's up in the air. Well, number one, SPF, there's no rush for crypto regulation right now. Two years is what we're going to see if crypto regulation, I believe. It's the only thing that's bipartisan that Congress can agree on or Congress and Senate can agree on or the house in the Senate can agree on. So I don't think there's a super big rush, any bill you see that comes out is going to be a long tail. We're not going to see anything done in the first month or two because they're still going to be investigating FTX. But I just want to say all that because the biggest thing right now that's going on in Congress is the Speaker of the House where the Republicans. So we have ends I believe with McCarthy and mchenry, I think McKinley is the number one candidate. So either one of those guys that ends up as speaker, it will not be, it will be good for us and our Bill. But we'll have to see what happens if it somehow is someone else. Not a 100% sure.

"Yeah, I mean, the green is the price, right? You know, what's very interesting is, yeah, the green surprise, but what's very interesting when you look here, every single time these lines touch is a significant moment. Yeah, the .1 in the this, the bottom of the market. This it actually did not touch there. Kind of touched here. And you could really say it across here, this is the beginning of the bull run. I mean, look, look at that, boom. Then over here, right now, we're seeing it touch again towards the bottom. It basically is almost like pie indicator. Like it crosses or touches at the points at the beginning of the bull run into the bear market. So right now it just touched. And I bet if we were to look at this date, I bet this date or this date, this range lines up when we got the bottom. What's so funny? It does, 'cause here it is right. Look at this. It touched exactly at the very bottom. Yeah. Very interesting. But you know, we're getting another touch here. So does that mean it's going to, I don't know. I think everything, everything in me looking at the chart and understanding the four year cycle says the bottom is in. But that doesn't mean the bottoms. But to me, I think it is. There you go. I know anonymous crypto predictions disagrees with me. We were right on track with each other. He just has a little longer time frame for when he thinks the bottom's going to happen. We basically lined up on the cycles. It just my time frame for the bottom was different than his. So we'll be interested to see there. We're going to say some DJ? No, it is. That was something about that chart. I don't remember what it was. But we moved on. Can you talk for one second?

"Uniswap may be one, it's an exchange token as well. It's decentralized, but. I don't know. That's a great question. I'm looking down here on this list and like nothing's jumping out to me that I would say, yeah, definitely bail on. If you start getting down closer to the bottom, I'm sure we could probably find some, maybe maker, dash, I like iota neo right here in that range as well. So hold on, I have to let somebody into my house. Hello? Yes, you may please send Instacart in. Thank you. Bye. Every day at this time is the car comes to my house apparently. That was what it was yesterday or the other day. I think as well. My wife is not going to the grocery store and probably 5 years since 2020. Yeah. Immutable acts maybe one I would get out of. I don't like them because Kevin O'Leary isn't there. Did you know that Bitcoin people hate block snacks? The maximum is hate block sacks. Which I thought was interesting because it's like about bringing smart contracts and other things to Bitcoin. Right. But they hate it. They say it's because it's a token. Yeah, exactly it's not Bitcoin. But I thought like, I don't know, maybe if it's trying to help is what it is. Okay, all right, so there you go. I hope that answered that question. Frank, you want to come on up? I am right now trapped in a short and I wasn't profit earlier this morning and I'm not. So tell me what to do. What is going on everybody? We will try to get Ben back and profit, which the other day, by the way, the candle mafia was very worried when we were on the show and you were saying that you were at a loss and you're waiting for it to get back in profit and they were hoping that you got back in profit, which you did. Got out. Sometimes a 3% profit is incredible when you almost got stopped out at like a 20% loss. It was like some of the biggest wins, right? Yeah, people look at those numbers. People were judging me on Twitter. They're like, oh yeah, 3% gain, great job. I'm like, yeah, it's what you didn't see with that trade. Is how much money almost lost that was the really important thing there. So I think that's something to look at. But the thing is, waiting to get back in profit only works if you are still running the same consistent stop loss. Right? So if I didn't have a stop loss, that's a horrible strategy, like get out and close it if you think it's going the other way. But I have a stop loss for a reason and I'm comfortable with it hitting that number. So yeah, absolutely. And that's sometimes the hardest part about trading is, you know, trusting your TA and holding through that volatility, you know, when your trades in the red, not trying to close it early, just setting your stop loss, accepting that if you get stomped out, that is how much you're going to lose. And you know, also having a risk management strategy so that you can actually lose multiple trades in a row and still be profitable. So guys, we got a lot of good stuff to look at on the charts today. I was actually talking to Ben a little bit earlier.

"We like engaging. This is an interactive show. The whole thing. So what happens is, I come in yesterday, this bonk people have been talking about it, hyping it up. We're going to be doing a video on samo here pretty soon. We're going to show connections between SPF and samo, I know there are other coins as well that he's associated with, and they had similar marking strategies to what is going on with bonk right now. So to me, it did not seem out of the question and I still would not rule it out 100%. I'd say like from the information I've been giving like probably 95 percent plus chance. He's not involved in it. But what I would say is, I'm going to come in here in the morning and giving you my opinions and conjecture, no matter what. It's not the same amount of research in the morning that goes in by the end of the day. So if I say something and it's totally wrong, not that it's factually incorrect, but I'm giving you some conjecture that may not be true. And I get more information today. I have no problem coming in and explaining today or last night around the blockchain. What my new thoughts are after remember this guys, you take in new information over a day. You take a new information over a year and that can change your opinion, and that's one reason why I like to start up controversy in the best way to say it, I do like to do that. But all of a sudden, like, I got so much information yesterday because of the way that I talked about it yesterday, that I know way more about it today. And so there you go. And it is worth noting too around the blockchain has moved to its own channel, so you want to continue to watch that and dropped it in the chuckle. There you go. And it's pinned there. So everybody go subscribe and turn on the notifications so you see those when we're live. Yeah, absolutely. So there you go. Good for that. Okay. All right, so there was my thoughts on bong. And there are other things that kind of fit that narrative as well that may not necessarily be a 100% accurate in the morning and it's not that we're giving you wrong facts. It's stuff that's conjecture. So I hope that makes finances listing it. Binance is listing it. So I heard it might be in the stories here somewhere. Oh, look at this. Yolo cash, number one. Please stop. It's crypto. It's crypto. Near protocol at 20%, each classic up 17%, a lot of finance up 16%. Optimism, a lot of interesting stuff with optimism, a lot of optimism on optimism. Yeah, a lot of optimism on optimism. So there you go. Yeah, Scott Adams says the best way to learn is to be wrong in public. Well, that's true. Well, especially on Twitter, they'll tell you. Very,

"No, not yet. We're not that large. In fact, what Wells Fargo into these other guys are doing outside of crypto that will because they're playing with housing market. They're playing with all types of assets that are further reach and adoption, right? Crypto is still young, guys. So, but the good thing is here is that crypto's on the agenda up for everybody now, right? They're paying attention as the asset class and technology continues to grow. Now, Caitlin long, I've had her on the show multiple times and she gave a really great example here of what I'm talking about in that traditional finance, you have the problems that took place with FTX as well, right? So she said all the commingling that happened among crypto intermediaries reminds me of this SEC action from 2016. And what was that? According to the SEC's order instituting a settled administrative proceeding, Merrill Lynch further isolated the customer protection rule by failing to adhere to requirements that fully paid for customer securities be held in lean free accounts and shielded from claims by third parties should a firm collapse from 2009 to 2015 Merrill Lynch held up to $58 billion per day of customer securities in a clearing account that was subject to a general lean by its clearing bank and held additional customer securities in accounts worldwide that similarly were subject to leans, had Merrill Lynch collapse at any point, customers have been exposed would have been exposed to significant risk and uncertainty of getting back their own securities. So what FTX did was not a blockchain crypto specific thing. Commingling of funds clearly have happened outside of crypto and general wire fraud and taking costs from funds. That is just old fashioned stealing and fraud, right? Now, don't get me wrong, they pump their exchange token FTT, which I wasn't invested in and I wouldn't recommend people to necessarily mess with exchange tokens unless you know it's fully decentralized, but clearly it was centralized. You know, that was manipulated, but not the, you know, nothing changed for Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, cardano, and so forth. Those blockchains are still working. Everything was fine, even through all this debacle. Yes, the price is down, but we're in a bear market and every asset is down right now, right? It's a macro bear market. So just I share this stuff because it's important to have the knowledge and the perspective and to look at things from a factual standpoint, not from a sensationalist standpoint. Right now you're seeing the headlines about, oh, Sam angry, FTX, crypto is going to zero see crypto as a scam, crypto's a Ponzi. And then when you just had Wells Fargo fine ridiculously for what they were doing, that doesn't get the sensation. Headlines, right?

Crypto Lender BlockFi Declares Bankruptcy Following FTX Collapse

"BlockFi, which was last valued at $4.8 billion, has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as the FTX fallout continues. So in the filing, the crypto firm said it has more than 100,000 creditors with liabilities and assets ranging from one to $10 billion the company also listed an outstanding $275 million loan to FTX U.S. still remember that block 5 based liquidity issues when three AC imploded and it looks like they could not survive another big hit. Well, I'm going to toss this one off to you another crypto firm filing for chapter 11. Yeah, I feel like we need some sort of emoji reactions on the show for all the explosions we've been seeing week after week, FTX is just contagion season. We're going to see more of this. There's a lot of firms that have been tied to FTX. They got loans from FTX. They had accounts on FTX. We're even seeing some reports of some other stuff going on with the hacking. So there's going to be more news about this. BlockFi was definitely a large shoe to drop that some people were expecting because of the credit line that was opened up this summer from FTX to block 5, if you remember, just go back in our time machine a little bit. BlockFi needed some funds after what happened with Tara Luna, three AC, you're looking for someone to help shore up their credit. And even going back further than that, they were fined by the SEC for their involvement in offering an interest bearing account. SEC did not like that, find him a $100 million. If we look inside this chapter 11 bankruptcy filing so far, we even see that BlockFi is still trying to pay that off. I think they owe about $22 million to the SEC still. So this is a huge thing to drop. I think I saw from LinkedIn this morning that they have about 500 employees over a block fight. It's certainly dropped since the summer. I think they did a little bit of a layoff this summer as well, but now they're going to do even deeper layoffs going to chapter 11. Probably just going to keep anyone that is needed to keep the fund or the firm rather structured as they start liquidating assets and giving people money back based on what they need.

"Was this about funding reclassifying a lot of domestic terror cases and using kind of J 6 As a way to get more funding or do you think it's ideological or is it sadly is it both Well here's what's funny The FBI has certain mandates that they have to fulfill There are funded mandates where Congress gives certain amount of dollars and says go do this with this money And then there's unfunded mandates where they tell them to do something and the FBI has to figure out how to do it And one of the funded mandates that the FBI has is terrorist investigations That's the reason why a lot of the money since 9 11 has been thrown into the FBI into the counter terrorism division But there are two branches of the tree of counter terrorism one is domestic right now which is obviously the favorable branch at the moment And the other is international but international is where the money comes in or at least a big chunk of it comes in from Congress And so what's really wild is I'm hearing from my buddies who work counter terrorism that they're getting briefed They have to go through their domestic terrorism cases and look for any connection to international terrorism So they're going to go and look at the so called white supremacists or whatever they've got January 6th people that were getting rowdy in the capitol and see if they can make a tie that they were in the same online forum or like the same post that someone in ISIS did because the FBI is looking to lose not gain but lose significant amount of their funding from Congress to the tune of a couple $100 million The number I heard was 300 million And the extent the unit chief out from the international terrorism division to go to the field office is to try to get these guys to find a connection from their domestic terrorist investigations because they've overdone them this year to try to tie them back to international terrorism so they don't lose that all with money which I think is kind of wild but it tells you that it's probably more ideological based

Jason Pye Shares His Take on the Warnock-Walker Race in Georgia

"Real quickly, your take on the walker Warnock libertarian, why do you say, I mean, Warnock, I mean, there's been a lot of arguments, but he can't get over 50. Walk right and get over 50. You know, you know, you can sort of say, well, walker's had these other issues, but Warnock's had some other issues, but walker, he's also spent a $100 million using income, but any ideas? Ultimately, on that race, I think if it's a runoff, if it goes to a runoff, which I don't know where I come down on it, it will or not. But if the consensus month behind the behind the closed door consensus is beginning more and more on the Republican little walker camp and the Warnock camp, I've had some contact sort of endometriosis about they are now setting aside substantial thought to a runoff. Interesting. If it goes to a runoff, you know, I'm going to give it to walker. I think he ultimately wins. But when someone like chase Oliver, chase, and this is part of being involved in a third party and having a third party background because I was back in 2000 6, I was 2005, 2006. I was state party chairman for the Libertarian Party in Georgia. At the age of 25 years old, I don't recommend that to anyone by the way. With Chase Oliver, he says things from a perspective that I agree with. On both markets and social issues because Chase is the first gay Republican Senate nominee in Georgia history. And he brings that interesting perspective, which made scare off a lot of conservatives. And I disagree, but I respect it. But with Warnock, I think the biggest problem he's facing is. I'm a George bulldogs fan. I don't have my Georgia bulldog. I'm not in my office, so I don't have much. All my stuff. I got my Kirby smart ball there. There we go. Yeah, I'm so jealous. So with walker, I respect him and I thought he was a great running back for UGA. I mean, prior to the last national to the championship, they just won. The last championship they won before that was the year I was born.

But you're also going to see a bigger pro life message of groups like ours, you know, highlighting that we're not who the pearl abortion groups are trying to make us out to be, that we actually have been serving women for decades, and we're going to continue to do that. That these pro life groups actually promote life affirming services, whether it's medical or social through pregnancy centers and social services. So you are going to see that we're going to have to break some of these myths that the media and the left is trying to put out there about what it means to be pro life. They're going to try to paint us in the worst light, but we have a responsibility to show. No, these elected officials that works to ban abortions. They also worked to dedicate a $100 million to women's social services specifically for these populations to help these women overcome the barriers that they see whenever they're facing unexpected pregnancy, we have Republicans that are working on CPS reform that are working on adoption reform.

For Sports Agents LIV Golf Is a 'No Brainer'

"I think I got to take the perspective of an agent right now. Because if you think about this, the age of right, when you're a player, a lot of these high profile guys, they literally are on a leash by their agent. They don't do anything that their agent says not to do. A robot and the best sense of the word, and then when their agent tells them to show up where this, eat that, talk to him, get this phone number, play golf with him, they do it, right? They do it. So a lot of these dudes, especially these younger guys, can get swayed by the agents. So much and if I'm taking the agent's perspective here on Cameron Smith and he's got a $100 million fishing line out in front of him, guess what the agent fee on the PGA Tour is the normal one is. 20%. It's 20 percent. So 20 million dollars of that 100 million would go to this agent. That, that's generational money for the agent. Not just Cameron Smith, so what do you think that agents pushing for? What do you think bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson, all their agents were pushing for? All Greg Norman has to do is get a bunch of agents on his side. That's it. And he's going to have a full roster period. But so that's kind of my perspective on it. I've got kind of an aged point of view at this point with the live because the agents want these guys to take it more than anything. It's the biggest cut in professional sports. There's not another pro sport that pays 20%. To their agents.

A lot of these rumors turned out the just back just that rumors and fake news. So I don't know. I don't even know if he's going. I don't know what to believe anymore in the Twitter sphere and the Internet scene, but it sure does appear as if all the experts on the tweeter think the Cameron Smith is out of here. Yeah, I mean, he's the other thing, dude. I mean, some of these guys will straight up say, no, I'm not going like if it was more a car where a lot of these other a lot of these other rumors but cam Smith is not said that he is not going. Like he is all of his comments have been, you know, don't ask me. I just want the British open. You know, I'm here to celebrate that. And then this week it was, I'm here to win the FedExCup, you know what I mean? If the guys are not going, they're going to say it like immediately, I am not going. You know, maybe he's going to renegotiating a little bit after that British open situation where who knows. I mean, if he's taking a $100 million, which is a lot of money, which is what it was rumored on there. And that's the other thing reason you think it's probably true is there's a definite amount people are talking about. But if he's taking a 100 million racks and he won the British open, which with sponsorships and whatever, we thought might be worth 20 or so. Especially for him, number one Australian guy, who knows, dude. Maybe he's holding out for something. But you know, he could win the FedExCup too. He's playing well again in Memphis. I think he was two going into the FedExCup, so you know he's way up there. So if he plays well, he's going to win the damn thing. How about that? What if the Brit rainy British open champ and FedExCup champ leaves leaves the tour? Well, then you'd end up with this situation.

Why Does the Inflation Reduction Act Include IRS Hyper-Funding?

"This bill, as we mentioned last week and tried to warn, adds $80 billion to the IRS's budget and 87,000 new staff members to the Internal Revenue Service. 80 7 thousand new IRS agents. That makes the IRS larger than the FBI, border patrol and the State Department combined. That's what happened over this last weekend. And remarkably Democrats in tough Senate races like Mark Kelly and Raphael Warnock, they don't care. They voted for it because they know that they're still going to get over a $100 million in Democrat cash as the Democrats are now representing the white wealthy party, Republicans are getting outspent almost every race across the country. Because the values of wokeism are most consistent with miserable, wealthy white people that live in Malibu and Manhattan, and they want to spread their misery and imperialist upon the rest of us. The IRS adds 87 $1 billion. To their budget.

"$100 million" Discussed on Leadership Powered by Common Sense

"Here and talk about it that way, but it is a lesson that, as I said, just about every entrepreneur I've ever known, I was guilty of it in my business. It's a story that's out there. Well, there's two things I'll say. The first is when we keep somebody for too long, we're not only doing our company a disservice, but we're doing that person a disservice because they're doing a mediocre job at the job that they're doing and that's making them suffer. It can't feel that great to not be doing your best work because you've reached a level of unconscious competence or conscious incompetence where you're just not the right person for that job anymore. That can't feel good. And so we're preventing that because we don't want to have that hard conversation. And they don't want to be told it's time, then they have to go find a new thing. But I know a lot of folks who I've had these conversations with both in my company and elsewhere where they've gone and gone on to have much happier professional lives as a result of this one moment and I've received some thank yous for that. The second thing is that it's not just the people in the organization. If I'm being completely honest, there are many times where I didn't feel like I was the right guy for the job. And some of that may have been impostor syndrome, some of it may have been a little bit of. I don't know, laziness on my part or focusing on the wrong thing or not wanting to make that hard call or being a little bit in over my depth or just tired. You build a business as we all know the entrepreneurs listening. It's like pushing an elephant up a mountain. And so there were times where I probably, if I'm being completely honest, should have replaced myself. And I did replace myself three times with more professional and experienced people. But if somebody is running a company and listening to this and thinking, am I really the right person to do the job? There's a conversation there and I'm sure Doug you've had this many times, whether this is impostor syndrome, a time for you to focus on something new or maybe you just need a vacation for a little while and you need to go back to school and get a.

"I've developed a simple three part program that's very similar to this. It's an alliterative description. It's people process and profits. Everything about a business kind of falls in one of those three buckets. You describe the activity that you and your partners went through to define this framework of purpose and values, so you went after people that could fulfill that. You described a very rigorous talent acquisition effort to really check people's spirit and check people's motivations to be part of that team and then you described the creation of these processes and you just a moment ago mentioned the idea of somebody who was in the back room, crunching the numbers and tracking things and adding the mind science to the. Viability of the company to keep things in front of mind and keep things moving in the right direction. So it's ultimately quite an orchestra you put together to make this happen, right? No doubt. And whereas we may have started off as Jack of all trades and masters of none. We eventually saw the need to bring some jills on board and to and to specialize as the company grew so that we made sure that the best person was in the best job when we could do that internally. That was amazing. And when we had to bring somebody from outside because we didn't have that skill set apparent, then again, that same rigor around finding the right person for that job who brought the expertise that we were lacking, but who represented the values that were important to us, the kind of person we'd want to sit and have a meal with. Then we knew that we were bringing somebody in who would honor the people who are coming in or who are already here as opposed to saying, well, here's why your business is messed up and here's what I'm going to do about it. Which often happens. I'm going to put you on the spot and I'll give you a fair warning so for all the great things that it sounds like you and your partners were able to pull off, what might have been your biggest aha moment when you realized something about what you were trying to do was not quite going the way you wanted it to and you had to pull up or shift gears or re correct. I don't know what the right word maybe. How much time do you have Doug? It's going to be like ten volumes of episodes, but listen for all the great things we did.

I am your host, Doug Thorpe and today we've got a special guest that is going to talk to us about how you might go about building a $100 million purpose driven brand. That's a mouthful to say, but my guest is going to help us break that down. His name is David dresler. David, welcome to the show. Thank you so much. It's great to be here. Yeah, so as is kind of become our tradition. Why don't you start us off by giving folks just a kind of a little bit of rundown on your journey in business and life to get you to this point today? Sure. I grew up spending my summers at a hotel in upstate New York. It was owned by my aunt and uncle. My mom worked three jobs to keep a roof over our head and keep us in meals. And so summertime was not a vacation for her and therefore there needed to be some place for me to go. My aunt and uncle were happy to get some child labor out of me. So I took a Greyhound bus from Montreal, where I lived to placid New York and worked for the summer. Carrie and bags and pouring coffee and renting the canoes and doing odd jobs. And so as I grew up spending my summers there, I had a, I guess, an inculcation into the world of hospitality. And when I got to be a teenager and I was thinking about where to go next, I had uncles who had been in hospitality, my aunt and uncle made placid had set a stage for me, so I went to study, got an education and hospitality in Switzerland and management. And I came back to America and started my career with Hyatt hotels, worked for Hyatt for a number of years, every conceivable management job, then went to four seasons hotels where.

"What is that even mean? He's an entertainer. He's there giving an alternative point of view in the entire mainstream liberal media is giving the same view that gets disproven week after week. So that's interesting. So that's interesting. So you're comfortable with the idea of him as an entertainer talking with a Doctor Who's completely out of sync with current scientific evidence. And if they're saying things which are not backed up by evidence, that's fine. But a lot of them have been proven to be right over time. That's what I feel like nobody is acknowledging is the fact that all of these things that we were told were no longer true. That is a real problem because science as we know develops. Now I will just say that this is about politics or science. I think this is about class. It's about the fact that the liberal mainstream media is catering like the Democratic Party increasingly to the pajama set, the people who have white collar jobs who can work from home and Joe Rogan is producing content for people who want to see their own skepticism reflect in what he's saying. They're not going to inform medical advice. They're going to hear how other people think. No, there are two separate points there, though. There's Joe Rogan speaking very effectively to a section of Americans that you don't feel is catered to by other sections of the media, but then there's the other issue, well, how does he handle people coming onto his podcast and saying things that are not rooted in available scientific evidence, Mariana spring? Let's bring CNN that. Well, believe me, we do ask them those questions, but Mariana, I'm interested to know how do we assess how do you assess when something can be stated as being categorically wrong or where something is stated as being unknown. Often what we find is that comments can be made that are misleading, for example, or something that is in part true will be misused to then propagate something that's false. So for instance, there have been a number of false claims about fertility the suggestion that the vaccine will somehow make you infertile when there's just a total lack of scientific evidence and actually all kinds of doctors and experts on this topic would say they don't even understand by what biological mechanism that could happen. So what we often find is that there is a lack of evidence to back up some claims and that something that is true in isolation will be used to push false claims about the vaccine, for example. And we often see that in discussions like on podcasts where people will go back into the fourth, they will be trying to understand someone else's and it spirals and spirals. And briefly Elizabeth finally do you think that technology companies, which is what they were initially like Spotify are geared up to handle these editorial challenges..

"So you get the money in return, but as you say, with that comes responsibilities. Let's speak about that with Mariana spring. BBC News is disinformation reporter because Mariana Joe Rogan has been accused of a range of things when it comes to COVID, misinformation, just guide us through some of the areas he's got involved in. I think one of the biggest concerns when it comes to, sorry, I've got very creaky throat. One of the biggest concerns when it comes to Rogan's podcast has actually been the fringe guest that he has featuring on the programs and that in many ways become a gateway into more extreme ways of thinking and more conspiratorial mentality. Most recently, he had quite a prominent anti vax influencer who has promoted a number of false claims about the vaccine. Essentially suggesting people shouldn't have it, or that it's causing harm. And one worry is that people tuning into Rogan's podcast, which is conversational, like you say, which is chatty, which they might find more accessible and more interesting than a lot of the accurate and slightly more boring information from scientists and trusted experts. They'll listen to it and then they'll go and follow up. They'll Google this anti vax influencer. And so they quickly find themselves brought into more extreme world views. It's been the same when it's come to all kinds of different topics from far right influences. So to speak or those who have promoted in cell like beliefs as well about women and so on and Rogan's approach to this is, I'm just asking questions, I just want to understand what different people think. But it risks pushing people towards these extremes, that they otherwise wouldn't have been aware of all exposure. And I guess that taps in, doesn't it to the fact there are two interesting questions here. One is, should these people even be on his podcast in the first place, but the second is, if they're going to be there, how does he handle what they say?.

"Offensive things as well and also promoted misinformation about COVID. We can talk about what they've said, things like a guest has said an prominent anti vaxxer who said that Americans have been quote hypnotized into wearing masks and are duped into taking the vaccine. He himself has questioned whether young people even need to take the vaccine and has said you don't need to take. He doesn't think you need to take it if you've already had COVID, which is not what medical experts said. And on and on and on and on. There's been tons of offensive material and hindered as well. And he has put out a statement, which would hear in a minute. He's also insisted he's not anti vax, but just explained to us why concerns about Joe Rogan and COVID, which aren't new. They've been around for some time. Why have they escalated in the last few days? Well, they started escalating actually a couple weeks ago when there was a letter from 250 confirmed concerned scientists. Worried about Rogan's comments. But then it really took off when Neil Young pulled the said he who is a history of standing up against a large institute. There's large institutions in the music industry. He said, I'm going to pull my music, it's going to be me or Joe Rogan. And then Joni Mitchell followed him yesterday that our artist India re followed him also a popular podcast from grenade Brown. Said she would be no longer contributing episodes. So it's really ballooned and then internally as well, Spotify's employee base, which has long been in crisis over Rogan. They're actually having a town hall right now over this issue. Okay. And when Neil Young offered the option to Spotify of young or Rogan as he put it, so far Spotify has chosen Rogan. This is a man who has become a podcasting phenomenon. There are millions of downloads for every single podcast he has millions of followers on social media and let me give you an idea of what is podcast alike. Sometimes the conversations can be very long over three hours, here's a little of one with Elon Musk last year, which eventually drifted onto the question of the human race beyond earth. Could you colonize the galaxy in a million years? Absolutely. The entire galaxy. So you would start with Mars, build bases on Mars than to use Mars to jump off all these other planets, set up places there, and over thousands of years each kind of like software one solar system to the next and that's something for us to consider.

"While lead producer of the catch up is Rosanna pan Woods, who's with us on the media show. Now, Rosanna, I know that before you even started putting a program together, you did a lot of research about what younger people want from the news. I wonder what you found. Yeah, we did. So we've got a really good team in the audience's section of the BBC who put together several focus groups for us. So they found real people from across the UK and most importantly in that 16 to 24 year old age group outside of London outside of this sort of metropolitan elite bubble that I think is kind of that's what we're all seeing on our timelines is a very certain type of person. They found us some real people and they did a lot of research and found that they wanted things explaining to them in a slightly more a patronizing way, but a slightly slightly more simplified way, unless assumption that they've been following ongoing stories and more sense of content that specifically for them, one section one quote even that stood stood out with somebody saying that every time the tuned in to the normal news or the kind of typical news, they felt like they'd missed a million episodes since they last tuned in. And other particular stories that they were saying they wanted you to cover or to put it another way, subject areas they didn't want to hear about. So what was the most interesting I found during the research is you would imagine that a really easy way to attract your audiences would be let's put in lots of celebrity stories. Let's put in lots of entertainment stories and a lot of the feedback overwhelmingly was what we've already heard about that on a social media. So if we've heard about that 12 hours ago, the BBC is not telling us anything new. We're not getting any extra value from a bullet in there..

"$100 million" Discussed on The Media Show

"Audiences. TV provides a moment for people to be together and to drive conversation where people want to share things together at a specific moment in time. Just look at strictly. Jake Cantor media correspondent at the times. Are you convinced? Well, I think much like eating with my ex, which was a key show on relaunch night yesterday. There are some people who are quite quite happy to see an old flame and others who are less thrilled, I think. I think the first thing to say is that it's return is an acknowledgment from the BBC that taking it off air in 2016 was a huge mistake. And I'm not sure that bringing it back now will necessarily write that wrong for various reasons because other services such as Netflix have caught up and overtaken the BBC in some areas. But given the arguments that Fiona Campbell was making, if we accept that they are persuasive, why weren't they persuasive 6 years ago when other people were making just the same arguments for not getting rid of it in the first place? Well, I think what's changed between now and then is the BBC's realized that it's got an existential Christ in terms of young audiences. And this is its big play to try and win them back in some respects. Now you can talk about the mechanics of that. And whether it will work or not, pioneer herself, the controller of BBC three is talking it talked about it enhancing the sort of content discovery ecosystem. In other words, that means another screen through which young people can engage with BBC content and then hopefully that then points them back to why player where they're recommended other shows that they may enjoy. But I think one of the big criticisms I've heard of this decision is that BBC three is coming back with a lower budget than when it went dark. And that to some is quite unpalatable which shows for the people who believe in this that the BBC is not as committed to young audiences. It should be. And if it was committed to young audiences, it would restore the budget and increase it with inflation. Elizabeth, let's bring you in here because you're the Silicon Valley correspondent for The Washington Post. I wonder what your thoughts are as you listen to Jake and I discuss the BBC bringing back a linear TV channel, presumably there would be some people in Silicon Valley who might raise.

"$100 million" Discussed on Journey to $100 Million

"Why should clients or employees care about our journey to one hundred million dollars. Hey there i'm eric olsen in i'm kevin days join us our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. What's happening it's eric olson. I had a phone conversation with the client a couple of days ago and we were talking about various things and right in the middle of the conversation. You said you know what. Eric there's been some. There's been bugging me for a while. Your journey to one hundred million dollars is all about you. It's you and your company. What's it in for us the client like why should i care that you want to grow your company. Two hundred million dollars now eric. If you're taking us along for the ride then maybe i should care right if you're going to build one hundred million dollars company because you helped me build one hundred million dollar company that gets my attention but otherwise it's just you bragging about how big you want your company to be and i said you know what you're you're absolutely right. I need to talk about those things more often because the reality is that that is in my mind when i think about the journey to one hundred million dollars now when kevin and i i came up with this concept like when we bury i came up with the concept. It it was very self-centered frankly we're like we want to build a hundred million dollar company. That's awesome let's do it and then as a little bit of time when all we're like well why would anyone else care while our employees care. What's in it for them right and we kicked it around for a couple of weeks until we realized we know what the reality is. In order to build a hundred million dollar company we have to build a very large organization and at the time we were thinking lots of managers. Lots offices now. We realized that that's also gonna mean lots of agencies. The model that we are creating here is to have many agencies all with a specific industry or skillset niche. And what i mean by that is. We may have agency that only does web development. We already have an agency that only caters to digital marketing for hvac contractors also for law firms. Maybe one day. We'll start an agency. That only does. I don't know like pick something social media for plumbers right but berry niche agencies. We're going to have a whole bunch of them. Someone's gotta run those agencies already. We've put someone like eric. Thomas in the position of president arrival digital. That's an opportunity as we create more and more these agencies and we grow and we do have offices and all those things we need people to step up that is opportunity and frankly it's on limited opportunity for everybody here and the hundreds of people that will be adding over the years. But what's in for our clients. Well look i always knew that the bigger we got as an agency the better job that we can do for our clients. We can provide more people more skilled people. We'll learn so instead of having like one person as an example who knows social media have a team of twenty. they're kicking around ideas for our clients and they're doing amazing things right now. We may just be posting on facebook in the future. We may be filming every single day with our production company and chopping that up and putting out small videos micro content three times a day for a client for the same price. Baby probably more. But still you get the point like we're going to do so much better and bigger frigging awesome work in the future for our clients and we're learning along the way and we're applying and we're adding the skill sets more and more people. It will have a impact on our clients. We cannot grow to a hundred million dollar company unless we crush it for our clients and we have said this before but not in the context of journey to one hundred million dollars. What was said is that we want to produce amazing work for our clients so they make more money and then they spend more with us on marketing right so we want to initiate in. Continue this cycle. They pay us for marketing. We get more leads and revenue. They spend more on marketing. We get them even more leads and revenues and we all grow together. That is absolutely the goal. And that's what i explained to my client is that we have this vision ready. But we've done a terrible job of communicating it pretty much. We haven't communicated it outside of the walls in this office and that's a problem so you're probably going to be hearing me talk about this a lot more why we're going on this journey. What's the purpose. There is a purpose here and it's not just about big time money. It's not big time opportunity in changing the lives of every single person that we touch. That's the goal. I mean. I want to build help build big companies for our clients. They employ more people and they're on a similar journey to us. They're getting bigger. They're getting better. They're creating opportunities for their people. Everybody wins that is the goal of journey to one hundred million dollars. If you like this podcast and you know alert. Who wants to grow.
