That's exactly what your values and your principles were gone missing in the entire presentation of the Which i think was needed was a they could change and could adopt or they could move. You know it was almost presented as a decide what they are and then dot shoe as a coach for the rest of your career. It seemed to miss the poem. Pov saying these may well be your values right now but let's start to work with them and find out whether they definitely are whether there's any that you just think they are. You may be. You're saying them because they are parental influences societal influences. It might even be you telling me that one because you think that's what i want to hear that a lot so again. How do you if you get a sense that some of the values that someone has put forward to you. Do you get a sense that nah that that does not them. That doesn't fit. I'm guessing that you're not going to say that outright. Maybe you are. But i'm guessing you're not going to say that outright. So how'd you gently move someone towards an understanding of that one. Maybe isn't quite right. Yeah so i think probably have the conversation around evidence so if somebody was to look at your life right now how would that evidence you say your values are and you know if somebody says that.

How to Get Approved For A CBD Merchant Account

"Couple of things that i just want to. Mention is the basics of getting approved. So you've built your shop. Five store You know you or or whatever whatever back and you decided to go. But a lot of people use shop affi- and then you've you know you have your skews ready and your manufacturing in your fulfilment so those things you know. I'm just going to kind of push into the of assuming that you you've you've done that in you're ready to go on that end And those are very good first. Step so congratulations on getting to that point in your business because that's necessary in order to start a looking for payment processing solution The important thing that you have to keep in mind is what are you selling are you selling. Cbd are you selling hemp based Skin-care are you selling buds or flowers or other products. Whatever the case is you have to make sure You know you limit the the amount of skews that you have so a lot of merchants kind of go into the mistake of having this like blanketed store with a whole bunch of different products Apply for a merchant account and everybody says no. The one thing you have to keep in mind is that every bank in every payment processor may have a certain section of cbd or cd based products that they're willing to support for example some merchant processes are very good with cbd but they won't do anything skin-care related so they like the adjustable they don't want the skin-care others are fine with the skin care but not with the buds or the flowers or whatever the case is so you have to keep in mind that you know focus on what you think is going to be your biggest seller. The important thing is to get your business off the ground so even you know. Having ten twenty products is going to be difficult to You know to to to continue. Because you're not going to be able to process or you're not gonna be profitable on each skew. Read from the beginning.

"affi" Discussed on The Porn Reboot Podcast

"Areas of your life as women started getting more freedoms to participate in our economy and in politics and in various levels of society. So these things started changing over time but we cannot ignore the biological if we completely ignored by logical and try to force society's rules upon ourselves we find that as men we become very unhappy women become unhappy to that is my sincere belief and that is what i realized over the past couple of years at the end of the day. You have to decide whether relationship goes and what i mean by that. Is that a man leads in his relationship. If he's unsure of what he's doing if a man is not excited about life if he has no direction it is going to reflect in your partner but when you are quote unquote activated when you are actively living when you're taking risks when you grow in when you failing. She will in turn respond based on where she is in life right What this means is that. I'm not saying she might support you. That's not necessarily the case. Sometimes a woman will support you when you put yourself out there and you start looking for a purpose working on a mission or she may retreat. She might retreat and run away from it because she's not ready for that or she wasn't socialized to deal with that or she might reflect on herself and decided that she wants to grow and improve herself. Because she sees you improving yourself and we see this a lot in men who are going to our reboot program men who are in relationships or she might decide that she's going to pull back like i said earlier. She might retreat again but this time due to her insecurities and fears either way. I believe that as men. We have to be confident in a relationship that we have with our cells first before we begin to question the relationship that we have with those who are closest to us and when it comes to rebooting that means stepping out of this very simplistic idea that yo if i just stay away from porn everything else in life is going to fall into place. No that feeling of things falling into place is any illusion. It is simply you gaining clarity. Because you have your no longer acting out but a lot of men gain that clarity and they don't take any action so they see like oh. My goodness like i could do this. There's so much potential. I could do this. I could do that. You know i should have done this. I should have done that and then you do. What the average guy who was never addicted to pornography does nothing you give into the fear you stop spending time on social media. You start entertaining yourself. You let your body go. Because you've moved from the point of medicating everything with wrong. Affi to just being a regular guy but again that clarity which you develop from staying away from pornography quickly gets clouded by all the crazy things in life that are competing for our attention and so no purpose no mission. No grote no nothing. That is not the best place to make a decision about your relationship from again from the language amusing. You can tell that this is all about you. You've got to have clarity about where you want to go. i feel life is stagnant. And you're just sitting in a stagnant pool of water with your partner. There's no incentive for her to do anything and again a lot of men have just let go of this belief that they have to lead in their relationships if you're stagnant and he just looking at your port and she's not motivated. She's not doing anything she what are you doing. What are you doing to lead a new relationship. So i believe when it comes to the question of. How do you separate marriage issues from your recovery. From out of control behavior it comes to number one realizing that aratu questioning if you watch truly recovering or if you're just playing games of willpower and secondly finding out if you are actually growing yourself before you start looking at the relationship and placing blame on someone else a finding faults with another person. I'm jay your brother.

Is WordPress Still The Best Option for Building Your Business Website?

"Is wordpress. Still the best option for your business website. I want to start by saying that. I am a huge wordpress press. Fan wordpress nerd I have special feelings towards wordpress. That's how i got into web development. I've earned a lot of money building websites when i was starting out a built my technical and business chops around wordpress and i like it. Because i like to modify an edit and customize and design and we're pressing has been a lot of flexibility and it gives you a lot of flexibility even if you don't wanna do that like you could just by a theme and you install the theme and you just work within that the or you can go really heavy on the customization. Css schimmel or use different frameworks like the oxygen framework that we're using now that it is incredible. There's a lot of lot of options but a lot of people don't need all that and some might need it first of all. I wanted to say we're press is a fantastic. Blogging platform is fantastic for search engine optimization. It's got a lot of good points going for. It's a huge huge community. So there's always a way fix something in. Were press with a quick google search but depending on your business your business model that you do you sell. It may not be the best option for you. And i kind of was on the fence about this a few years ago but recently i've really come around and i'm really obliged now to tell my audience that is not the best solution for all cases. If you're on a e commerce store of yourself physical items and e commerce store for years i would just tell you know go with wordpress and us commerce which is a plug in very very simple setup. But today i wouldn't recommend that. I actually would recommend you go with shop. Affi- go with a shop off. I hosted website I know the shop of is different plug ins and tools for wordpress. But i would just go with one of their websites. Chop fi is just such a good platform and they have built such an amazing solution for e commerce businesses. If you're an e commerce. This is a no brainer. My book shop a fi is just so so good. I know there are other players in this market like we blay and squarespace and they have e commerce solutions. But i just feel like shop a fi ticks. All the boxes and more the supports incredible. I would not use wordpress if you have e commerce store because shop. A fine is just going to do it for

How AspireIQ Can Help Companies Through Influencer Marketing

"Talk a little bit about your platform more high level. I like what does the aspire iq platform do and the problems that you're now solving for owners. Yeah thanks for that. Happy to go through all of those things. Obviously it's a it's it's a challenging world out there for a lot of people trying to get started and influencer. Marketing is happy to go through a lot of my advice there but at a really high level spirit. He was a platform for brands to build. Engaged communities of influential people and that ranges from social media influencers to customers fans experts and more we are actually one of the first influence of platforms back when we started in two thousand thirteen. And now we're fortunate to have over four hundred brands clients from bigger names like walmart and samsung to e com leaders like purple glossy and hellofresh and actually in our last few years our focus has really been tightly on ecommerce. Where over thirty percent of our clients are on shop by ranging from billion dollar market leaders to five-person companies. You know for shop by really if you kinda summarize it down what we saw for you is building an in house influence a program that drives real are y. And that could mean anything from for. If you're a novice setting up the and organizing the initial program helping you source the first fifty influencers and tracking promo codes and affiliate links to generate the first sales or for advanced users it community something as robust as customizing a complete crm solution with integrated workflows across hundreds of influencers generating thousands of pieces of content. That optimize your whole stack. And if you've ever run an influencer campaign you'll know that it's really challenging and especially if you've all you've got spreadsheets and email so i think the three biggest problems we saw for our number one finding the right influences to create content for you number two managing the complex workflow between your brand hundreds or even thousands influencers in your community and number three analyzing their revenue in the are y that your program is driving which shoutouts shop affi- is easiest.

Pittsburgh Houseplant Merchant Blossoms During Pandemic

"Now. This is a really cool story today. Two weeks ago we focused this episode this segment around a guy known as plant influence sir. The plant influence up toronto. And naturally we try to space topics out of bit When i was looking at all the notes for upcoming throwback thursday segments. I saw that this one was about plants i was like. Oh that's cool but let's let's push the plants back just so we're not like all plants all the time. But when i listened to the interview with abby some parts of which you'll hear in a moment. I realized she had a really good story that i just didn't want to wait for you to here. So this is the month plants. Apparently and after years of being part time abby opened her shop in january twenty twenty she opened a retail shop in pittsburgh and naturally was quite worried. Because you may recall. January twenty twenty was the last normal month of life for most of us especially anyone who is a public facing kind of business like a new retail shop but in her case she really ended up turning things around so she's got a great update along with some helpful lessons. You always hear this thing about you. Know find your niche and chief and mentioned sat in her by. She's like yeah. You always hear this thing but it's so important in a crowded space and she actually was able to find a good one so it's always good to look and say okay. Not just find your niche. But how does one do that. What are specific examples of people that have done that because that will perhaps allow somebody else to think. Okay what is what is my thing. Not just my broad area. But what is my specific plant expertise. Am i going to be the plant. Influence her going to be abby from pittsburgh or am i going to be myself. You know the best answer is probably to be yourself. But how can you make that marketable anyway enough about me. I learned a lot from abbey's interview. So let's hear some highlights from her. And i'll be back at the end to wrap it up. My name. is abby calcio knee from pittsburgh pennsylvania and i own jericho plant co which was previously featured in episode eighty three. I started back in twenty eighteen. I was working a full time corporate job in the supply chain in finance world and just wanted to do something in my free time on my own with something that i love which was plants. So i started in online houseplant shop. You can hear more about in that previous episode. And i did that for about a year and then in two thousand nineteen. Whenever we recorded that last episode i was just branching out into doing local pop up shops around town and finally getting my hands. what in selling in person instead of just online and having my husband come and help me because i needed extra help because they were doing so well Yeah it was. Just you know. A pretty stereotypical side-hustle just kind of finding time wherever you can find it so once. The lockdown happened in pennsylvania It was also very uncertain. And we no one really knew what to do however my space and the warehouse i open in pennsylvania technically allowed to stay open. Because i'm an ecommerce company. So i was actually set up pretty well for covid and the lockdown was already set up to ship customers their orders. And that's exactly what i did so honestly i don't know if i would have grown as much as i had twenty twenty. My first technical big year in business had it not been for people really wanting to have plants in their home so that they were all stuck at home and finding my business especially here locally. I was shocked at the amount of people who are willing to pay for shipping. And i was sending it to miles away because they could leave their homes. So i all my inventory was already on the website. I've still have that same shop. Affi- store that i had for the last two years so i was really set up for success. Actually which was incredible and then just sort of went with the flow for the rest of the year. Like i'm sure every other business owner has has done and i continued pop up shops where possible and doing sidewalk shops. So that was also a great way for me to advertise and shop. Affi- put in place a curbside pickup option into their interface. So from may onwards. That's how i've made most of my money as people buying online and picking up on my warehouse here in pittsburgh and i still ship across the country and that's still a great avenue for for revenue for me. I was fortunate enough to hit one hundred k. And revenue by november of twenty twenty which. I didn't expect to happen at all. I was very happy with that. It was sort of a struggle of mine. What's i kind of got to see. How the hub. Year risk going in terms of hitting six figures in nine months in a business essentially started the pandemic i. I'm pretty happy with the growth. That i've had and continue to see going into twenty twenty one one of the biggest challenges that actually any house plant or plants seller in general husband. Basing is a plant shortage across the entire country This is both in seeds and outdoor plants. I think demand is skyrocketed this year. Which i've obviously benefited from. However that's led to incredible shortages at the growers in florida and on top of that they are also dealing with the repercussions from fad hurricanes in the past five or ten years because the plant supply chain. It takes so long if you go to a store and buy a five foot tall tree just think of how many years it took for that plant ticket that large and if a thrower gets its inventory wiped out or damage that can be years of sales that are taken away from them. So my advice to you in. If you're looking to get into any sort of plant business would be to find your niche differentiate. Yourself and i know that is sometimes just something you hear about and you know marketing class or whatever but in a saturated market like online plant. Sales are or you know. Even locally you're competing with other plants stores florists and garden centers and lowe's and home depot You really have to differentiate yourself so. I focused my entire websites on helping beginners. Find their plants. Just sort of like a questionnaire like form type of thing you can go through my website and then everything is kept nice and simple on the product pages to really just get people started with house plants one of the biggest surprises and benefits. I am getting out of starting my own business is so i do the retail side and the wholesale side and retail to make people happy every single day by giving them plants which is so much fun and talking to everybody is so much fun but what i didn't know i would enjoy so much is talking to my wholesale clients and getting to know other people who are running businesses. Because they're in it with me. They no one else knows unless they're nba arena there few fighting the same fight. You are like the struggles. Of how am i gonna pay rent this month. All right my heating bill was really high. What can i do to reduce that. And and how. Am i going to get inventory and a consistent schedule talking about those problems and helping other business owners and learning from other business owners spend such a wonderful benefit of. It's sort of like your own little. Nba i feel like without having to pay all the money for an mba.

The Controversy Behind the FBA Rollup Strategy

"This is mike and welcome to this edition of the e com crew podcasts. How's it going dave. You make a better mood now. We got the chit chat a little bit and we were making fun of each other so before we even started the podcast. So we were talking about game stock game stock. You're talking about game stock. I was talking about the actual company. Game stop but that was. That was pretty funny. It is like the hardest name to say game stop stock for somebody dyslexic because me is even harder. Yeah there's one that i had to tell you about line. That's inappropriate for the podcast. I let something slip the day and the the warehouse here because there's a there's a tongue twister of products that i miss it. I misspoke was pretty funny. Definitely inappropriate for the For the podcast. There's definitely tongue twisters out there for sure. Yeah there are having a hard one game. Stop stock game. Stop stock in the speaking of crazy investments one of the the craziest investments. These days is people investing in what we do. You know these amazon companies. Because i think that a reality is people on wall street or people with lots of money in places all over the world or looking for ways to put their cash to work in a zero interest rate environment right and the reality is as you can buy an amazon business much like what we do with ice wraps or while baby or off roading gear or color it and get basically a thirty three percent cash on cash return which is a whole lot better than a half a percent interest in your in your bank account and so this is starting to really garner a lot of attention from third party investors out there. Yeah it's crazy. I guess that's kind of topic of this podcast. Are they crazy or the ecommerce owners selling the crazy ones because obviously there's been a huge fan of these roll ups. I was looking at a list. I think about least ten plus with over one hundred million dollars each and capitalization so they have over one hundred million dollars each just to go out and buy e. Commerce businesses specifically amazon businesses is. That seems to be really what they're going after for some reason they've ignored shop stores and like kind of traditional direct to consumer brands which are selling predominantly through their websites and focusing only on these amazon browns. And that's the interesting part i find. Is that the kind of ignoring the great unicorn businesses that we want you and most of our listeners. These websites which don't rely on amazon we want those businesses but the investors seem to amazon only businesses or at least predominantly amazon businesses. I think there's a good reason for that. I want to choose my words carefully here. I think a lot of the has to do with the fact that making money on amazon is kind of easy in a lot of ways. Right i mean again. We never try to make it sound easy and it isn't necessarily easy but on a scale of one to ten or a spectrum of things that you could be doing to make a living is on the easier end you know. There's a lot of things amazon. Takes care of that. You just don't have to think about that. Do make it easier. And you're comparing apples to apples between an amazon business and a direct to consumer shop affi- type store. The amazon one is easier to operate. There's there's no warehouse for you to have because amazon handles that. You don't need to handle returns amazon handles that you need very little customer service. Because amazon handles the bulk of that. You don't need to pick pack and ship. The items amazon handles out and they do it in a way. That is better than you'll ever be

It's such a great time to have. Jonathan join us so jonathan. Just want to say big. Thanks to you for for making the time to be with us today. Well you so much for how we saw absolutely so before we dive into what. You're up to within healthcare You know and the work that you're your conducting there and thinking about what is it that that inspires your work in digital overall. Well i think what really inspires me about digital. How technology is fundamentally changing. The way that we live our lives day to day in the way that we work i had the opportunity to grow up in silicon valley and so i was surrounded by incredible people constantly. Innovating looking at how technology could permeate the way that we live and think about our daily lives interactivities and how we connect people and then seeing look how scaled out in really the foothold has taken businesses and innovation driving our economy and our conversations is just continued to inspire me in so over lost. Twenty two years. It's been the same motivation that's really driven and keeps me excited With this constant pace of change of how technology can continue to bring value to people dan. it's It's amazing right. I mean what we could do with whether a campaign to dry behavior or just you know how people access certain things technology can really help. And we've faced a lot of challenges through the covid pandemic and healthcare has really been more open than ever this type of change and this type of digital transformation. Why don't you talk to us a little bit about emerge and what exactly you guys are doing to help. Those of us in in healthcare. Yeah so one of the big areas of focus for merge is healthcare over the last fifteen years and we have really been working with organizations to not just embrace digital as a marketing tool or embraced it into how they can improve patient experience for support caregivers or support the relationship between patients and payers but really to come in in. How do we look at technology through the lens of empathy. How do we drive innovation. That can have sustainable. Long term impact and so a lot of our work is helping our clients wherever they sit in the healthcare spectrum to look at that empathy layer into really focus on digital as product a lot of time digital becomes this disposable thing where it becomes a tool and it is an essential tool but it needs to be managed out the product to drive continuous innovation and serve the providers and the patients that are out there and so i'll give a really quick example. Today's website for any hospital or care provider is essentially your front door in kobe. Just amplified that said okay. Well with a social distancing and being more where we need our websites to do a better job and i would argue that. Most websites are dramatically underperformed. Because they're being managed as websites that are more of information resources than they are as critical products. Meaning how do i help somebody. In an emergency navigate the services we can provide when they're in a state of distress burston being overwhelmed by how much information being presented. Or how do i help somebody or a family. Member find physician with network knowing their available understanding their expertise. And what does that look like provide end to end care. And that becomes very very complex as we all know when we start going from general practice into specialists and moving through the healthcare system.

Three Marketing Trends to Look Out For in 2021

"So what are the top three trends. I believe you should look out for and twenty twenty one and how to really utilize each of them. So your business can reap the benefits in two thousand and twenty. Many industries are a surge in online shopping online purchases buying things whether it's products or services or tools online. And here's some data for you. Depending on the industry of various from one industry or the other but the minimum growth of online sales was twenty. Five percent in some industries saw up to five hundred percent growth if there was any apprehension of ever buying things online or being reluctant to put a credit card on a website. Those as are totally over cove it has obliterated those objections or the hesitation. And it's been a year. It's been at least nine months for most people in the world who have had adopt to buying things online with grocery whether it's renewing their insurance with our buying coaching or therapy online. The point here is is that this is now. This was a short thing. At least nine months of this was going on so people are in the habit. They're comfortable with checking out online. Now you might be saying. Hey omar that's great But i've been online for years. What does that have to do with me. Well this means that your checkout process has to be on point acid efficient. It has to be fast. Many industries are really upping their game when it comes to check out. This is one of the focuses. We have in our business whether ninja some of the things that you can do to improve the checkout process. So people are having a more pleasant experience and they come back to buying your products and services is a more options for payment. One of the options Haven't adopted yet but we'll be adopting in two thousand. Twenty one is incorporating apple pay into their checkout process. over sixty percent of the internet's traffic is on mobile. That means people are going to be on your side. They're you buying things with their phone and a smooth transition to check out without pulling a credit card out of their wallet using apple pay is going to put you ahead of the game. It's gonna make it easier faster. Simpler for your customers already been predicted that apple pay is going to see a huge jump in twenty twenty one. Many studies have shown that by the end of twenty twenty one. The ten percent of all transactions around the world will be with apple pay. That's a huge slice of the pie. You can tap into that you can increase your checkouts by offering an easy way to check out if you're using a stripe for example checkout already have apple pay built in. You just need to make sure that your interface or checkout process has apple pay a shop affi- store they have apple. Pay already in there so you can really just this on. It's going to take you a few minutes or maybe an hour to set this up on your site and you're good to go trend. Number two people have been watching videos for a very long time but twenty twenty has saw the most significant jump in video consumption ever in history forbes recently published an article showing that in twenty twenty people watched five online videos a day whether it's to whether their videos on people's websites these platforms are designed to keep them watching again. This is a habit. This is a new normal. the has been established. People are watching more and more online. Video is becoming. The medium of choice for communication on top of that youtube tubes algorithm for search engine optimization has gone bonkers. It's incredibly incredibly sophisticated. If you search a term on youtube not only does it search for you know the titles and the descriptions and the comments for those terms it actually knows when somebody actually says those words on the video and will give you a result of based on that. So if you're asking me you should go bullish on video this year. Two thousand twenty one. You should have a video content strategy whether it's a weekly series whether you're running webinars whether you're doing live or recorded video with youtube channel the players that you wanna tap into what people are already doing instead of force people into something that you like doing her new like consuming you're like producing it's never been cheaper. To produce videos now you can get a you know hd or four k webcam for under one hundred dollars get a ring life for fifty dollars and a decent mike for about sixty dollars and you got a home studio. If you're on a mac you have free editing software with movie. Even if you're not on a mac you can always Go with adobe subscription service which you can get their dobie premier Video editing software for like thirty dollars a month an indispensable tool if you're going to get serious about video and twenty twenty one highly recommend you start thinking about what video content you want to produce. It doesn't have to be talking heavy. It could be interviews. You could be reaction videos. It can be collapse as long as it's entertaining. It's engaging it's informative. People will watch trend number three and this one's a big one and it's gonna affect a lot of businesses and you really should start looking into how you can adjust your business to your website. Accordingly and that is privacy and security. This has been something. That's been percolating in the news for some time. This is particularly important when it comes to the way you are going to be advertising to your customers typically if you want to run facebook ads for example you have to put what's called a tracking pixel on your website this facebook to know when somebody's on your website so they can serve them ads on facebook and also allows them to track conversions. The issue is that data gets an owned by facebook. And a lot of it is some information that a lot of gonna wanna share like we'll computer browser on their location. If they're signed into facebook they know a whole lot more. Even you know who they are their likes are wants. All the interactions. They've had on facebook and basically facebook contract this person as they're moving around the internet and this is becoming more of a problem is becoming more of an issue because feel realizing wow. I'm being tracked We started to see this a couple of years ago with the cookies. Message that you see for gdp are people say. Oh the cy has cookies. And it's a way for us to track and people just ignored it and they're just click. Okay things are going to get a little bit. Hotter apple has already announced that in their next ios update for was fourteen. They're going to have actual pop-ups actual System messages from the operating system telling the user telling the person with the iphone. Hey this site has a tracking pixel. Do you want to be tracked. And it's actually quite a statement. It's actually something you really can't ignore. You have to say yes my movements or no. I'm paraphrasing of course. But the point here is that the privacy issue of tracking people is becoming more and more a- battle and obviously apple is going because their brand is all about privacy and security and boy do they have a market share so a lot of your users a lot of people that use iphone. You know if they're use. Iphone are going to see this message on your site. This means you can't have a tracking pixel and you're gonna have to think of ways to market your business you can. Of course run ads without attracting pixel. But you can't track conversions. Which makes it really hard for you to be able advisor ads. Which then begs the questions. Should you run ads. So this is something you need to keep an eye on and you need to plan ahead already in our business. We're trying to move away from paid advertisement or paid acquisition where customers into long term long tail content marketing whether it's a blog whether it's videos whether it's youtube whether it's partnerships with as their affiliates. The point here is that we want to own the traffic. We ought to be able to rely on our own content to bring us a traffic and not use. Third party apps to advertise. This is a big shift. It's not easy. It's not just facebook. Google or anybody else that has any kind of pixel on your site or requires a pixel so that you can track conversions so if you use paid. Acquisition us paid ads on lincoln on facebook on google. You may want to think of other ways to bring in traffic at least wean yourself off of the a bit because it's not going to be as effective as it used to emmy even get more expensive so there you have a guys three trends to look out for twenty twenty one. Get on top of this and be ahead of the game.

Owners were selling in person only using everything from spreadsheets to paper and pencil to keep track of it all so companies are increasingly offering new tools to help brick and mortar stores manage their inventory and figure out which online platforms are best for them into. It launched something called quickbooks commerce earlier this year to help companies sell everywhere alex chris as the vp of the small business group into it so the most basic is in person right so you can imagine a retail store or if you're at a farmers market and you wanna be able to just sell with people in front of you but then there's lots of online channels as well so you can through amazon. You can have your own website and then there's a lot of selling through social right now so you know all the stores or or sales that are happening through a facebook or instagram. All of those are happening and businesses want access to customers wherever their customers are shopping. And does this product specifically integrate with those like all of a sudden. I have listed my products on instagram shop by an amazon. And i can see how they're doing across all those channels that's right that's the beauty of it is once you are set up in one channel. We are the source of truth for your orders inventory. Got it so so really. What you're saying is that previously small businesses were using quickbooks doing their thing maintaining and didn't necessarily want to explore all these other options or feel like they had to. I don't think they had to. I think they were working well. The economy was going well. And now when all of a sudden you know the world throws a curve ball They figure out how to pivot and persevere and what we're seeing now is a lot of small businesses saying okay. I was fine before. But now i can't have people showing up to my store to buy goods so i'm going to figure out how to sell online. You know here to help. Small businesses think through that and allow them to be able to survive. What about the data on the back end is like are you discovering internally what channels are the most effective we have not only the orders that are now coming in so the revenue that a small businesses making but we have all their expense information as well. Because that's what they've been using quick books to reconcile so now they can start to think about as they're leveraging different channels a social channel. They can now see the efficacy of the of that marketing. Spend and so for the first time they can really see our ally on where they wanna go leverage. Are they finding such great customer acquisition through instagram. That that's where they really wanna go double down there just getting those insights into making them smarter to be able to grow their business. You know we seem to be at this moment where there is actually a burgeoning industry in aggregating small businesses. I wonder if you're going to find that. Ecosystems develop that like facebook says you can't have access to our tools for selling because we're building our own competing product right now. It's certainly a concern on the concept of a walled garden is great for the platform. But it doesn't give the small business access to customers. And so we're that mench pin and the source of truth that can now connects to all the different opening systems. Alex chris is vp of the small business group at intuit and now for some related links.

"affi" Discussed on Love In The Middle

"Overall of getting married. There's no let me finish. Because i'm going back to wirelessly steiner hold on i think there's a fear of getting married and surreal fear because the divorce rate is high and then there's this this whole idea of a. I'm not sure i don't wanna get divorced like what happens but i think the mindset when you get married changes and we'll talk about that later it changes from when you're dating where it's like okay. I'm i'm done. And i think that's. Where the unconditional love comes in that allows you to stay married. That's that's what allows marriage to work for the long term is unconditional love. Okay so what happens with dating now. Dating does not necessarily choir unconditional. Love it it's like we're not really it should it. Could but you're there's a lot of selfishness and dating saying. I'm not getting what i want. Then i'm gonna break from you whatever. You're not getting what you want. You're an amazon break. Whatever and it's a very selfish is very self. People are selfish. I don't put up with this. I'm leaving and maybe you reset and you go through all that song and dance you break up you get back together you break it. We get back together and what happens is when you start to live together. Then the doubts that the fear it just feeds the fear that you already had about marriage so then what happens especially. I know foot in width. Some women that i it can be. He doesn't want to get married because of this. So let me try to fix it. Or he doesn't wanna get married because of that limited to fix it and then before you know what you twisted yourself into this weird pretzel then. Yeah you lost yourself and then you're like this is why i can't be as well as out of a new who i am. Where when you get married if you're doing if you understand the concept of marriage it's not even twisting yourself into a pencil. It's i'm going to accept you jergen except me. We're gonna do our best to accept each other to to to change where changes needed with the help. Impatience of the other person and to accept those flaws for the florida. I think our flaws as accept them as just part of who you are and so when you start you start dating to test it out. What happens is you're looking for that perfect person that's not gonna get on your nerves. That's gross that's not gonna turn you off. Does not endorsing in this person. Going to please you one hundred percent. it doesn't exist. it's not a real whereas marriage. It's more about compromise and acceptance and loving each other through that. We're dating totally selfish. It's what happens you start dating and living together then it's like oh okay and then you start intertwining more and doing all these things and the more you see of that person the less inclined to marry them and then more the see of you the less inclined to marry you and then you just end up dating and living together until somebody goes chicken first and then you like. Let's just stay this way. I think that'd be a fun. Game for us to plan future episodes. We want to introduce these fun games. Things is you. Don't like about me now. Only quirky thing. Oh yes i got something. I think that'd be good. I think i think just to kind of put a cap on not that. I need to cap what you said what you. I'm glad i was able to be quiet long enough for you to say that was so good on. I would say in these words. I would say when you get when you get married your flaws become my flaws because we got married. We became one and i have to start looking at. You should start looking at you as meat. Not as let me fix the bad part of me. Let me accept all the parts of me and i think that's the way i accept my same exit myself and i think that's the a lot of people especially now i think in our culture we have a culture of me me me. Me and selfishness and marriage is so not me me me me. It's you you you and you look at me as you. You and it's more of an exchange and it's like it goes back and forth like i focus on myself and i focused on you. You focusing yourself you focus on me and it's this back and forth that the better you get at it the more beautiful it becomes in. This is like a dan hours designed a second chance like a. It's like a romantic dance and it's and it's I don't try to fix you now. There may be things you need to fix and let me just give a disclaimer. If you haven't communication issues and it's leading to like like like fear based like things whereas like. I'm afraid that something might happen to meet his relationship. That's a red flag. Pack your things up and just gracefully find a way out you know But if it s okay. We're struggling and we just. We argue a lot. You know but the arguments aren't getting out of hand. Then it's that's that's kind normal. That's not a deal breaker. I don't think. I think. I think that's that that goes into talking about as far as council some like we needed people to help us see the other side and not look at each other as enemies you know because there's a lot of the come in it's like oh i need to protect myself as a self preservation. There's so many things that happened in it and when you start when you start living together and start acting married while you're dating it just it it does a disservice because it's s- marriage requires something more that it's a it's a letting go of yourself for the sake of the other person and the other person that have gone themselves for the sake of me and really becoming one is so much deeper than i can even put it into words that that needs to happen in living together. Just you know. I highly recommend premarital counseling but nothing fully. You never be fully prepared to be married at some time. It's a step of faith absolutely. There's no way to go into marriage without it being a step affi that that just the last thing i'll say i think f- if you're if you're dating living together in the goal is marriage and it's going into here's It's you know if that's the goal then it's not really happening. I think there's is worth examining if this is part of the issue because if you're if that person is expecting perfection before they married you it's never going to happen and if you're expecting perfection before your mother is never going to have hands down. It's never happened. You're gonna be gonna become law. You're married you're like oh i can't take this anymore. It might be because you're expecting perfection. Exactly because people in their marriage just having. They haven't really got this point either because there's still like me and it's not it's not even it's not like the other person you can't some things you just have to trust that overtime it'll happen and that's where prayer comes in. That's where that's where we're love in the middle. Jesus be in the middle like that's where you have to learn to lean Because some things get fixed over time and there are things that maybe needs to be fixing immediate but but most things though and our i don i don't think something just saying oh everything can't be fixed doesn't mean you lower expectation or your hope for that being resolved. It's not the same. I'm us into just you know because too much eating in the marriage. We'll just erode your marriage to we like i'm just going to be the sake of the harmony and that's not harmonies. That's all right. This is this is kind of these last few out so let's go to sharing finances. Oh yes i do not. Oh my gosh. i don't think there's too much to say. Do not share finances. And i think any any financial person guru say don't ever share finances with someone you dating do not call sign a lease. Do not co-sign a car do not do. Don't do it don't do that. That's just that's just not healthy. It's not a good deal. Don't pay bills and your name. And i know there's some people that's like really and then there's some people like has don't do it so your money is.

3 Reasons Not To Sell Your Products on eBay

"Is still a huge player in e commerce especially internationally yes. Amazon. Is the big player, but Ebay is right there in in some countries the only player. So naturally, people that run ECOMMERCE stores have physical products will explore the idea of, Hey, let me put up my my products up on, Ebay? So I can leverage that power. So I can leverage that traffic and a lot of ways. It's fool's gold and let me tell you why I'm GonNa. Put aside all the obvious reasons why e Bay has some negatives like the fact that they will charge you a cut of your sales every time you sell something because you're using their platform. I want to highlight three big reasons that can hurt your brand and business long-term. Ebay in ways is like shark infested waters. There's a lot of competitors in there and there's a lot of people that are looking for interesting products that you like yours that are unique that are somewhat different from the competition because guess what they WanNa, rip you off they want to duplicate, replicate your product. There are tons of ebay sores just exclusively do this and I know this from first hand experience. As soon as your product starts, the trend starts to get some traction sorts being recommended by. Ebay because of its you know popularity east companies will analyze your page, even buy your product and go ahead and duplicate it for a fraction of the price because they have the mass production and the facilities for it and a few months even sometimes a few weeks. Later, your precious product ends up in their listing and the undercut your price Ebay is not very good at sort of policing this because it's such a huge marketplace and it's really kind of hard for them to police inte verify. Opening up yourself to being ripped off and really not being relevant in the problem is, is that now there's an Ebay. Seller that selling your exact product they they probably would never know about unless you were on Ebay. Versus. Selling in your own store on your own website. Number two and this is a huge one. The people overlook is that you can't control the customer experience. Ebay is an experience on its own the way people. By the way they check out with their offer at checkout upsells down sells a follow up, even the communicate with the customers during and after the sale is all up to ebays. System and you really have no control over that versus having your own website own store. Even if he is a platform like shop affi-, which allow you to really customize the checkout experience a whole experience for the customer of of really they're buying journey and really offering tailor made suggestions based on the DMZ that they choose instead ebay will suggest other items from other sellers rather than on your site. You'll be suggesting products that you offer that would work well for that customer as an upsell or checkout offer you can communicate directly with the customer the way you like whether it's a chat or via. Text or via email you could say your own policies whether it's for turns or shipping you control the whole experience and if you don't believe me go ahead on Ebay and look at some of the negative reviews of any product. The vast majority of those reviews are not about the product or about the experience whether it's the way it's ships or the way that it was delivered the way was presented or the way was communicated. The whole experience is really what the reviewing and not really the product. So you're getting a better view based on experience at you don't really have full control over on Ebay. The third reason is probably the biggest reason of all in is that you're building on quicksand. What do I mean by this? You're selling your products and services on somebody else is platform. If for any reason, Ebay wants to remove your products. Closure store is going to decide not to sell your type of product anymore on Ebay, you're at their mercy and you've built this. Customer chain through Ebay and that gets cut off in one moment. This could be the end of your business as you know it versus you having full control over how you sell your product on your website, you're building on solid ground. It may take you a little bit longer to market your website to sell your products in an exclusive store to you leverage your search engine optimization to leverage your email marketing and your blog and your content marketing, but it's well worth it because it's an investment that will pay for itself tenfold and more over the years, and again you hold the keys you own the property. This is why traditional brick and mortar businesses even like a store in the mall. Their lease is rock solid They make sure that they have long term leases that the conditions of kicking them out or very, very clear and give them enough warning because, hey, if you're getting all your business from a certain amount of foot traffic in a mall and that's your store that your bread and butter relocating is not easy and that's why they make sure. Hey, you can just pull me out of business out of no time nowhere. Now platforms like Ebay can do this. It's in the rights they could do this any time with no warning. and. You go from six figures and sales two zero literally night. That that scares you. It should because you should be building on your own property on your own website. It's worth the investment

Why Are Chinese Stocks Delisting

Why Are Chinese Stocks Delisting

"Sina Corp, which is the online media company based in China is being taken private by Charles. Chao, who is the chairman and CEO. The deal is being valued around two and a half billion dollars. Shares, of Sina Corp up about six percent, not quite at the buyout price. But getting there and all indications are that, yes the normal approvals will have to kick into place but this seems like a deal that's going to get done. What was your reaction when you saw this news? I was surprised because out of all the Chinese companies that I thought could be taken private or otherwise be delisted move elsewhere seen wooden have been the first one that I would have assumed bit the bullet but thinking about it more I'm not as surprised this is kind of a legacy Chinese social media company they spun off their steak and wayball. which is kind of like Chinese twitter. It has a interface very similar to that micro blogging platform. So the steak with an itself is really that's that's the value behind Sina and they made that spinoff. But when you look at the economics behind being listed in China taking yourself private potentially listing elsewhere whether that be Hong Kong or on a foreign exchange. It kind of makes sense the perspective from a lot of Chinese companies right now and granted again did not think that was going to be the first one that we saw bite the bullet but the perspective from a lot of Chinese companies is that they're simply not getting a fair shake in the markets here in the United States. So I'm not surprised to this happening and I, don't think that this'll be the last company that we either see take themselves private in the case of this show and chairman or otherwise list themselves on a different exchange. This certainly is something seen more of in twenty twenty than we've seen the last few years. By my count, we've got more than a dozen. Chinese companies listed on US exchanges that. have either been taken private or are in the process of being taken private, and this is going to be the most since twenty. Fifteen. I have to believe in you know we. Studiously avoid politics on this show, but I have to believe the political atmosphere is a healthy percentage of why this is happening. There's definitely a way to have the conversation without making it political just think about it from the perspective of a Chinese company. If you're doing business, your business is solely focused in China, but you're listed on exchange in a foreign country like the United States. The geopolitical risks that exists there is actually very real for these companies and may not impact their core business, right? If they're just doing business in China, it's Understandable that why would why would enter political situations 'cause your business to change? It doesn't but what it does cost a change is the evaluation that your company receives on a different exchange. So taking yourself private is a kind of extreme reaction against Cena's a little bit of a legacy player here what we're actually seeing more and more companies do is actually just duelists themselves have a second listing oftentimes on Hong Kong. Chinese shop Affi-. If you will bow soon, recently had a secondary listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange we seen Baiju hearing rumors about potential dual sting from by`due. That's probably the direction that we're going to see. Chinese companies taking is essentially saying we're GONNA. dualist ourselves to reduce the valuation risk that exists with being listed on a foreign exchange where it goes from here is anybody's guess but from my perspective, this is kind of an understandable reaction to quickly degrading political situation.

Khan Academy: Sal Khan

"Most of the products and services we've talked about on the show have been innovative or disruptive in some way. But some of them and you've heard me say this before have fundamentally changed the way we live I mean lift AIRBNB starbucks. Shop Affi-. wayfair. These brands have transformed the way that many of us shop and travel and work. But every now, and then a founder comes along that seems to want to do something even more ambitious, even more transformative like remember. Pat. Brown, he founded impossible foods to create meet out of plants meet. So meet like that even the most die-hard carnivores would want to eat it. Pat Wants to put a stop to meet production period because of the damage, it's doing to the planet and essentially and I don't think I'm overstating this. He set out from day one to change the world. But still. Pat Brown stands to make a lot of money from his company same with most of the founders who've been on this show and I don't think any of them are motivated primarily to make money but it is part of the story they make a product or offer service, sell it to you and me, and they also get rich perfectly fine. But what about someone who makes a product or offers a service that is equally transformational maybe even more so but makes it one hundred percent free To do that, you have to make personal sacrifices starting by earning a lot less money. which is just part of what makes Sal Khan. So incredibly remarkable. Over the past twelve years, he's built Khan Academy into a powerhouse, a massive online learning platform that offers free tutorials to anyone anywhere. And from the very beginning South sided, his academy would be a nonprofit that it should never be tempted to compromise on its values. But before he launched Khan, Academy Sal didn't anticipate any of this. He was just trying to help a younger cousin with her sixth grade math lessons at the time he was working for a hedge fund. But from those early days of doing one on one to toils sal gradually built a platform that offers hundreds of classes in dozens of languages. Nearly thirty million people use Khan Academy. Every month to learn math science arts even sat prep all four free and Khan. Academy has inspired the launch of many other online learning platforms, but many of them are for profit operations that charge money. But we'll get to all that moment first. Let's back up just a little bit sal Khan grew up in metairie Louisiana his mom was from India and his dad was from Bangladesh and the marriage ended when sal was pretty young. My parents. Had issues and so they separated when I was probably about eighteen months old two years old and then I had really never seen my father and I saw once four an evening when I was thirteen and then he passed away the next year so it was really might. mother who raised us as as a single mother. While was there a community of South Asian families in imagery? Growing up. Yeah my you know when my parents separated. We actually live with my young at the time they were in their twenty s, and so they all were kind of like father figures and almost like older siblings to to me as well and and a lot of ways they were not your stereotypical you know. Just come to the US study. Get a job save money kind of prudent immigrant story they were. They were much more embracing of New Orleans. Culture. And I would say they're the most new ORLEAN South Asians. You will ever find it in your life. I had a very colorful childhood. You know late night parties, people, singing, and dancing. For me it felt like a I remember my third birthday that my uncles got a belly dancer. I still remember Habiba you know So it was definitely a different type of childhood, but it was a in some ways a really rich one. So what did your mom do for a living? The first job that I remember her having she she was the person who takes the change out of the vending machine at the at the local hospital actually the hospital where I was born and she took me to work a couple of times 'cause she didn't have childcare and I thought at the time I remember watching her do that. I think it was like the coolest job on earth because you have the key that you can open up the vending machine and like quarters just pour out of it. So she did that for a little bit and then essentially was a cashier at a series of convenience stores is kind of doing you know one minimum wage job after another and then I was in high school she had remarried her my Stepdad at the time were able to. Kind of cobble together to get a a small convenience store in. Your book you write. Louisiana was as close to South Asia as the United States could get. It's spicy food. Giant cockroaches in the corrupt government which is both funny but somewhat true true. I guess right I mean. You grew up at a time when. Like David Duke was the. The representative in steel her. The part of Mary where we had our store, it was called seminole convenience store on Seminole Avenue, and it's called a parliamentary called on that was kind of the heart of David Dukes base. So to speak I remember in a right outside of our our store across the street was the largest David Duke for president signing I've ever seen and so it was A. You know the the folks who lived in the neighborhood who were frankly know Super David Duke supporters in some ways it was lucky. This is pre nine eleven They didn't really know what to make of my family at at the time We've had a few conversations I remember with people the store where they they openly told us that they were trying to decide whether we were white or the N. word to you know we were confusing them but you know growing up I was the only Brown kid in in the classroom. But I never felt in school at all like folks were in any way biased or racist against me. If anything I have to give the the school system to Jefferson parish school system, a lot of credit you know I think a lot of what I am today is because they gave me opportunities there were teachers that believed in me. I had a really good friend circle So so I have no. You, know I I don't feel like it was a a tough childhood.

A Dive Into SEO

Front End Happy Hour

A Dive Into SEO

"What does SEO stand for search engine optimization? Right on. Trying to think are funny funny more. Serious engineers over engineering. ooh. I feel that adds another e at the end, but that's Okay Jeff. Hyphen pitch outs all that's fair. That's true. WHY IS SEO? So important a good question. You know you and I were talking about this Ryan where it's like if you build something awesome what's the point users never come and so search engine optimization is really important because you gotta put your product out there and search engines are essentially the front door to the Internet. That's true 'cause yeah. Like you're not just typing in www dot blah blah blah blah dot com in hoping that it's a great website you're you're having to search for something and usually I don't know how many times you all spend time on the second page of Google I don't think. I make it very far to even the bottom of the first page there's a second page. All these. I've heard that. Yeah. So urban legend I feel like it's even worse on the mobile phone right leg. It's usually like just wanted like on that little bit of a screen I'm like they're done go. Yeah, I. Think it's. It's definitely if you're wanting near website to even get traffic, it's it's super important also very hard like I think that's the thing too is it's it's very important, but it's also something that it takes a lot of work. You know it's not just like put a couple keywords in your get on the top of Google cheers. It is it's it's practically a fulltime job, and that's why like companies will hire dedicated SEO experts or the leaving outsource to another company because it's there's the basics and then there's the things on top of the basics where you're optimizing the pages in the content, and that takes time it's not something you just do instantly it takes this kind of iterating and checking and monitoring, and then iterating from Mare and changing like the algorithms will change and the. How certain search engines rank certain things that algorithm changes and you're not privy to it. So you have to kind of gas, which is why there's these consultancy firms that pop up because they can stay in business because the rules keep changing what it's really interesting to to all that you just said about like having experts or consultants who think about it. And really have to pay attention to those things, but it's also really hard to call. You think you alluded to this but it's hard to measure because of the time too. It's not like hey, after a week, this change will show up it might be weeks it might be a month. So even as you make changes, you're like, did that do something? That's always been my struggle i. hope that did something well, but you don't quite know. Yeah I like the way you phrased that because there is a component of emotion to seo and I know that sounds ridiculous where you're like, why would I be? Why would I care so much about Seo but it's that hard work that you throw out into the world and then you're waiting on that return you're waiting on hopefully. The changes that you make will prop your page up on Google or any search engine like being or even Yahoo there there are other search engines. Now, that's a I've everybody's making good points. We I think Juniors we underestimate the importance vescio added. It's like Oh yeah I like you're saying you build something. Awesome. But nobody knows about it who cares? What was it four? If you're building a consumer product and consumer can't find your page your APP. then. What's the point? So you it's something. We totally forget about that like marketing in Seo actually critical to some of the things we build a lot of things will the the consultant angle is interesting because what I've seen and I have Also experienced, Seo. Practically none. But from what I've seen is a lot of Voodoo magic people claiming things and like Oh you got to do this. We're trick and this and this, and what I've seen is just it's a lot of people guessing. and. They have vague ideas about what the search algorithms are looking for. But they can't really prove it because I'm sure Catholic. NETFLIX's. personalization engine is like pretty secret even even for people were fair I'm sure. Google. Search ranking. Algorithm Patriots like also very. Super Super top-secret not that anybody can understand anymore. It's probably like millions of lines of code but. I it's just like a buyer beware if someone's like, Oh, I can get you to the front page or whatever be careful. A lot of people use dirty tricks and things that will get you. Like band or delisted. To get you to the front page unlike. It's a whole Burki world. There's entire SEO. Conferences. But. I imagine they're kind of bored I I mean I think there's value I. think there's probably good tips that they have right in order to I think you're right those like the bold statement I will get you the top of Google. That's a that's a pretty big statement and not always that simple and yes like. All right, let's say, Netflix Yeah. If you Sir Stranger things net flicks watch on Netflix or something like that. You'll be at the top if that's your keyword. Cheers cheers. Used to be a lot easier actually, what's what's interesting is over time Google has made it harder to game the system it used to be that you could just throw keywords onto your page and clears like. You could throw terms onto your page and Google would pick up on these terms in than. They would see oh, you're pages valuable. Now you've added these keywords sorry cut. Cheers. Chairs. What's funny is when I first started. Seo. We installed scripts on websites where because Google would tell you the search queries. The users are coming in from you would add those to your database, put them on your page, and then you're paid would rank higher and higher. But once everybody started doing that. Then the algorithms became more sophisticated in harder to game affi- and now they're including things that are not even just about content. It's like is your page fast? Can it load fast and it's like? You can't you can't fake that. No you really can't and yet but. Now they're lean into more of the user experience. You should be rank tire if if someone's trying to find something really helpful, they don't want to be sitting there for a longtime specially with mobile like I made the comment to being on mobile but I think it's more and more important being on mobilised. Really quick.

DevOps and Site Reliability with Matt Watson from Stackify

"This sort of field and and what serve inspired you to take the leap from whatever you're doing at the time to say, I want to start I company built a company around. DEVOPS and site reliability. Yes. So I am now thirty nine years old just day was my birthday and happy birthday. So thank you. I actually started my first software company when I was Let's see twenty two years old and. Coming Calvin solutions and that company grew really fast it was actually it's weird to think about now but was really kind of on the forefront of SAS software as a service companies in back. Then crap was hard like if we needed more servers like we're racking servers and stolen vm ware and like dealing with all that kind of crap and you know none of that was fun and none of it was easy and it was before the cloud right before aws azure and all these things, and so did you have a warehouse or something i? Mean how did you see we use? A local data center I mean, it was just a lot of can't city data center but you know so that company really grew really fast and in two thousand eleven we sold it. But when we sold it you know I had about forty people that worked for me and it most of that was software development but we had every challenge in the world from you know how to scale this thing the performance and bugs, and trying to build new features, and like we had all the problems as a startup, right? And you know my goal when I when I left there and started stack by was to build a set of tools and a platform that would help developers better understand how their applications are performing, how to troubleshoot basic problems. View errors view log files know just basic kind of day to day stuff, which is a lot of a devops `sorry kind of stuff these days but the problem I had back then and is it felt like myself and the three or four other. Developers that were the most important people in the whole company spent all day long looking at log files and trying to solve bugs in production. Right when we have like forty other developers, but they just didn't have the knowledge, the tools, the security access you know just didn't have all of those things to really help troubleshoot things and we just didn't have the tool. So that was originally the goal was know how do we build a set a tool sell developers troubleshoot basic problems You know so that the lead developers don't spend all day doing it. Yeah. Yeah. Let's try to unpack. I'm pack you. It's actually there's a lot of complexity around. Just getting. Some diagnostics into your hand, right. So you have this data center. Now most people are using aws. Let's say you've rented out a portion of the data center and you have some servers on it. How do you go from one hundred, thousand, ten, thousand machine serving some website to? Being able to look at something on your computer and say, Oh yeah, this this is bad. This log line is bad. How how does that end to end process look like? Well so all of these things have changed a lot over time right and used to be you know developers and system administrators would would set up all these machines and have a load balancer and you can log into the server and. Of course, you have all the DISA- Curie access, you know concerns with all those things right. But now you fast forward to today and like servers aren't even thing we have containers or we have server less applications and you now you're deploying a container somewhere and there's one many of those instances of that container and yet to your point of like. Well, how do I get the log files off of a container? Break it's it's like there's more and more levels of abstraction from you know developer or anybody on it to troubleshoot these things. There's multiple layers of automation and abstraction and all this stuff which makes it more and more difficult to troubleshoot some of these things because we use Microsoft azure stack by and we were really trying to troubleshoot something and I had to figure out how to SSh into a container that was. Am by the one I I'm an old Microsoft developer basically who eats every hates everything command line related. and. So I'm I'm not an old dog and I feel like an old dog now being forced to learn this Cuban eighties in all this stuff and Lennox. And I'm like God the is. So can I just like already pee into the box and like trouble shoot some things it'd be a little easier but you know the only way we get access to these things today is to get all the data off the servers right so like log data we gotta get the logging data off of the servers containers, the server lous APP whatever type of APP it is wherever it is wherever it's deployed you've got to get that data off of there and get it to you know A. Centralized. Logging solution which there are a lot of those backfires one of them we centralize logging, but there's things. Or all sorts of solutions that you can throw all of your logging data into elastic search, another popular how how does that work? So someone wants to use any of these. Let's say Stack Affi-, they built some docker container that has their their their website business logic, and then how did they connect that to Stack Affi- they? Right As. Part of their code like you have something in every programming language. So using say see boss boss or or no gas or something they have to have some line that says you log this Daca fi like how does it? How does that work? Yeah most developers in their applications use some form of standard logging framework, right? So in dot net that's log for Jay in its nausea since it's Winston, you know dot net it's in log log frenette are. So there you know they use these standard logging frameworks which help you decide if you WANNA logged the disc or log to. SIS LOG or windows event viewer rolling files on Disk, and all these different things right and so most most of the way you do this is they sport different targets or penders that are seeing the call different things. But basically, they're like extensions that allow you to just change your convict file to say you know what I want to send these this logging data to this third party source now, which could be stack or whatever the thing is right so It's usually a small configuration

He told me what he really misses the handshake walking side by side the opportunity to finish the meeting grab lunch afterwards that's what he misses.

They just need a little bit of assistance, because, you know, some folks are living on a fixed income, and I don't know about you Angela, but my bills have never gone down one year of my life.

I got the nastiest now I love her. She's old miserable. I just love her to bits but she's a jerk, you know, she's not the nicest cat nobody else really probably would want my cat. I love my cat. So this is a cat that if it came. Into a shelter. I can just about guarantee she's not going to have too many takers. Where's the best place for my nasty, rotten calico cat? It's with me, I'll give you another primary example. People's dogs bite they bite animals fight. And once there's a break in the skin, usually people are very quick to give up their animals, sometimes because they're just afraid they don't know what to do, but, you know, something, those fighting animals, if they can go home and be safely managed by their owners. Guess what? That's the rapporteur unity because we're not gonna have a heck of a lot of opportunities for those animals here. So to be able to help people keep their pets is perhaps, again. It's another pillar of having a no kill city and certainly with the no kill coalition. That was a key focus. We do currently have helped us, we do need more funding. Put that out there. We're looking for corporate sponsors for that, that funding for that position as well as for medical fund.

The seems to be quite good action Libya has huge oil reserves. How much is being exported these days and who's getting the money? Well, Nydia exports roughly one point three million barrels per day, despite the war raging on regarding who gets the money. Well, everybody gets a little bit as it were. So most of the money goes into the central Bank. Maybe a which of course to be accessed by the legis in the government, but the men of Elif Hoste, the civil servants of the government in the east everybody who works for the state still gets a piece of this oil money. Yeah. It's it's a putt which shared out does that mean, they're cooperating in the oil industry. The Dr is doing anything to sabotage the oil business for Libya. Essentially so ever since he took control of the main terminals and eastern in two thousand sixteen deal was signed between him the national local peration and others into west that would allow him to receive payment for securing oil sales. Now, I want to get to what countries are supporting which leader 'cause I kinda complicated. I mean who supporting prime minister of Serology in Tripoli is it rule of thumb? Everybody claims to support the UN process in the UN Beck government following this attack on April third when huff declared war, and you back government that attack the capital city, very few of these nations which claim to support the UN process in the UN Beth government has actually come out on the record and try to show that support. So what countries are supporting huffed are in a big way, you have the United Arab Emirates Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Two are pouring money while pulling weapons on the diplomatic level. You have fronts. Who seems to have some affinity for half, the new strongman view of Middle East politics, and then on a much more opportunistic level you have Russia. And then you have the White House as well. The US starkly has always been behind the UN, Beth covenant. But I think more recently ju- to influence from Egypt from Russia, President Trump decided to to perhaps not support hostile. But at least make sure that America would not get in his way Halifa half. Dr does he really threaten Tripoli at this point? I mean could he take over Tripoli? I mean, they certainly threatened trip. It'd there boming it on a nightly basis. They've created this sense of crisis throughout the whole country where young men not running to the frontline to try protect their country and their revolution against what they see as a story. -tarian vagrant the making it is possible that he can conquer Tripoli. I think it would be alone. Join out war that would be a destructive war. But I think he's the kind of guy who's happy to ruled over the rubble of trippy are Libyan's around the country. Are they just kind of sort of metaphorically, huddling and hope something will will happen? That's positive the entire population. Seems to be split right now there are some who support Hoste. There are some who are against I think the majority of those who are against the leave that if he should come into power than it will spell the end of any democratic dream that they might have had for their country knows who support hostile believes that he is the best solution to the chaos that has been wrecking the country apart for the law. Seven years, and they believe that he will eventually see to a democratic state. Yeah. I mean, if you look at his track record, I would suggest that those people are mistaken a bit hopeful tack measure see is a Libyan analyst he's based in London. Thanks a lot. Thank you very much.

"Follow us on Twitter at ODU. Affi- that's at sample or whatever you're on sand. Symbol then ODI f I and you can find me on linked in just search for Greg O, Donald. So why don't we go out to the phone lines ready for a couple of calls? What do we Bill? Why do you need a financial advisor? Hi, my question, actually, relates to these these plans, I was approached with one that rather than you contribute or get charged an annual amount you actually contribute a lump sum. One time say a hundred thousand dollars and then glows over time, and you can use that for long term care, but if you pass away, and you don't use it it's inherited to your air with some amount of interest. So there's some obvious insurance package related to that. So you're familiar with at and assess the pros and cons of that particular approach. Great question. That's one of those linked products talking about bills referring to a link to product. And thank you Bill for the questions. A great question. We are. Able to in linked products. Offer multiple options for payment, right? Some people can just do a one time lump sum some carriers allow you to do it in a ten pay some carriers allow you to do it in a twenty pay carriers allow you to do it in an annual pay. Some of them will will tease you with a higher rate like a CD comparable rate putting down more. Sure. Yeah. So so a Bill it's really it's really a matter of personal preference. I wouldn't say one is better than the other or or one works out better. It's really whether you have the money right now to be able to invest it into a product like that if you do have a lump sum, you don't have to worry about paying anything later right out of carriers. Do just offer the lump sum payment others than will will. Instead let you do it over a period of time. So I think there's no necessarily a benefit to one or the other. It's really just more of a Bill. Did you get a comparison of products when whoever you were talking with? About a brief description of haven't looked into them into into detail detail. Yeah. I mean, again, I think what you really need to be able to compare the apples the oranges. If you will go to link product to be very different if you're going to give up some money. Remember, you're going to be giving up opportunity cost with your money growing through an investment, call it the markets versus put it into a link product that may give you a certain rate of return plus a life insurance component plus a long-term care capable. What does that work out to be and do those link products will they have compounding over time? A some do some don't okay again, it really depends on the detail Nevelson the detail into those products can those products be manipulated four commissions, someone's just selling something like that. Can they? Yeah. That's a good question. I mean, probably problem probably so so you you really owe it to yourself to get a complimentary analysis from an independent professional who's who offers various products the best one for not the best one for their need. Correct. Someone who's brokering it around. Why don't we go out to Brody Brody? What's your question? Brody.

Leumi we help modern brands source and manage all of their packaging that helps their supply chain tick. So think of all the direct to consumer brands. You're probably familiar with like that fun casper. Mendis parachute home. We're the packaging partner, that's helping them manage everything that they need to run their companies except for the product itself, and they do that in their online dashboard, and we support them with a global network of manufacturing capacity to make all the different things. They need from tissue paper two boxes to packing slips. It's kind of a niche or like very specific idea to pursue esoteric. Why all the things you've been on for over a decade at all the things you could have pursued. Why that yeah? I think that when you find out that there's like a small group of people in LA dedicating their lives to like packaging supply chain for e-commerce. It is like what happened to these people like how they land there. And I think. My background and my co-founder Stephan. We met studying industrial design in so how things look like how things look when they arrived to customers. How brands present themselves. We always thought that was super important. And the first thing we did was started company that sounds even more niche. Ideas niche, my co-founder an eye for four and a half years of our lives. Ran a fabric dye business that was a DIY product to fabric dye that develops its color in sunlight, very niche market. Okay. But the reason that that's relevant. It was like we're kind of part of the early maker movement. We launched on Kickstarter sold it to retail and online really early users of shop affi- square stripe. Like in those early days of launching that business. And I think that we learned the hard way how difficult it was to bring a product to market. And so this company is like us building out our dream project of like would have on had made that easier for us. What if like the four years of toil and strife where like we almost brought like flirted with bankruptcy over like miss ordering things or whatever what if that was different later in further companies, and you know, through variety of decisions and learning from the brand who work with like, here's what we lend you're trying to do. AWS did forbids for Adams something that I sometimes say is you can't can't eat bits for breakfast. I literally say that. Which many sound insane. But it's Tula straight a point that the we still live in a very physical world. So as much as all of a special may be as entrepreneurs want to run even companies where we're like, I could go run my company on a beach like on a laptop. I can really do that. Like, we need to have this like physical manufacturing capacity. We need a network with all this like we ship truckloads and pallets of stuff. That's how world operates like, you know, every startup there were helping every company that we provide packaging for their serving elemental.

"When I was researching ideas for this project. The project was looking at ideas, but time in physics through the medium of film, so interested in kind of days of a time in film as much as time and physics and quite a number of his, but in particular, I met with Fayed outta and David Berman separately who gave me differing ideas about time about what time was and I was fascinated by their different concepts of time was and the way in which they described spoke about those things, and it was actually while I was talking with David the first germs of the film starts to kind of crystallize. And I knew I really wanted to use his voice. So it was a funny film in that the voice over came first and the visual followed, and it was while I was researching visual. Aspect of that. I came across the stone plaque and side of the clock tower acquiesce university, and it was this strange stone carving of a bird flying over bay with time. It's trough written in the top corner. And the makers known it was made it round eighty ninety. And I couldn't find out anything about it was strange piece that spoke to me, and I took a photograph of us. I was thinking also kind of nature of of phone photo photography like in that kind of disposable way, we take pictures, and we just sort of throw them away this kind of high dispersal rice for digital photography. But I still think of talk Affi for me is kind of marker of time. I still think it was a moment of time that we tried to sort of fix time with Takeuchi and in a way when I took the photograph of this plaque with time toy a trough written on it. I actually wanted to kind of expand that moment actually, wanted to kind of make a piece of film, which opens out that moment that photographic moment. Into a wider consideration of what our notions of the present is because basically physics offers. Sees extrordinary shapes and concepts, and we think about time in an over simplistic way. And I really learned from talking to both vay David the time is not what we think it is. That is implications for a great number of things, including our sense of history. I wanted to get some of these concepts of time, which I in the peace her in its as you've said, I mean, we think about tire in what you have said is a simplistic way, we really in a day today sense can only really of perch it in the sense of reality. The head own sense of women being in some direction mostly forward because obviously going backwards is not very possible. What's the use of discussing timing this way because there's not a lot. We can do about time as well. As it was. It's the difference between realizing that reality is not necessarily what our perception of it is that reality is actually quite something different to what our perceptionist human beings think it is. And I think that that separation we need to think about that. It's not necessarily as it seems to us. According to our -bility to proceed it for me. I think we need to radically rethink time. I think the time if we could change your understanding of time, it might actually transform us. I think it might be transformative. I think it might make us think differently about a lot of things we used to believe it was a flatter. I think we're very kind of sophisticated when it comes to space like we understand multidimensional. We understand hyperspace were kind of relatively ease those kind of ideas. And I think that the time Specht we've yet to kind of really get to grips with now. I'm gonna try on probably quite clumsily. Summarize will I took from what the two figures in your film were discussing it seems to me in the most simplest terms, and please correct me the perhaps one of them was arguing that everything in..

"They don't want their views block. They don't want more concentration. More traffic. Some of it is not a whole lot of economic mobility is one of the issues that that we've looked at. But really the key question is we had so much overbuilding going on over four. Oh five. Oh, six have. We burnt off that. Excess supply a we now really running a full deficit relative to household formation. That's that's what I believe. Now, there's a little bit on pack there because you took all the housing units in the country, and we matched up all the people. There might be a little bit of balance, and what the challenges that a lot of the housing units. That are currently available are in places where there's not a lot of jobs. Right. And so the fact that you have sort of a lotta housing in parts of the midwest and northeast that are seen population. Decline doesn't really help out when you have hot housing markets places like California or Texas in some places building as wrapping up, but it's still struggling to match. So you're seeing that real pressure. There pushing up a home prices is there anything we can do facilitate the construction of more residential real estate. I mean, clearly there's going to be a need as our population continues to grow. There are things in there's things. In fact, Freddie, MAC has been looking at in particular part of a small component but important component around manufactured housing, which in a lot of places. The rural areas that can be very affordable product, and so finding ways to finance that is I think an important contribution. Although in Agra that's going to be marginal. But you gotta start adding up marginal things because I think there's no national policy. I think that can fix it on the supply side a lot of it has to do with local zoning or a lack of labor, and so that I think we're seeing overall Connie's shortages of labor across the board really in construction because I know again, going back to the early two thousands a lot of the construction workers might not have been here legally, and those folks will all left the country during the financial crisis, and apparently have not come back is this still an ongoing drag on home any factor. Absolute lack of a labor is a key challenge. In part of the challenge is also the skilled labor that's available in the construction industry is also facing competing demands. In terms of remodeling. We got a lot of bloomers we've looked at sort of the housing stock as it is relative to the needs of. A lot of seniors who are looking to age in place, and they need to do remodeling to their house to make it sort of conform to what they're going to need and that sort of competes away limited construction workers as well because that's a relatively low productivity area. So that means you need more workers to do more similar amount. And so that puts again more pressure about across the board. Home builders are having a hard time finding work skilled labor in particular that they need to match ramp up production. You know, I could always tell when we're later in the economic cycle when you go to hire contractors and other people just to put on a new roof for landscaping at home, and they're very difficult to find. But I noticed that much earlier this cycle, and I didn't put together. Oh, it's a labor shortage. It's not just that the the economy is heating up that that's really a very interesting observation on your part. Let me ask you a bit about the. The bifurcated housing market. We've had a bit of a bifurcated recovery. If you're in the right, jogger Affi or the right career or the right education level, you did pretty well in this recovery. And if you weren't you didn't we see sort of a parallel development in housing their housing winning areas and housing not so winning areas? Are you seeing something similar to those anecdotal observations?.
