Jack Dorsey Is Building a Decentralized Exchange for Bitcoin

"In july jack dorsey and square doubled down on their commitment to bitcoin. First they announced they would be open sourcing the development of bitcoin hardware wallet then they went even further with the announcement of tb. Not just a special project. Td is an actual new business. Division of square that sits alongside its seller cash app entitled divisions. Here's how jack. I described it squares. Creating a new business joining seller cash title focused on building an open developer platform with the sole goal of making it easy to create non-custodial permission list and decentralized financial services. Our primary focus is bitcoin. Its name is like our new bitcoin hardware wallet. We're going to do this completely. In the open open road map open development and open source mike. Brock is leading and building this team. And we have some ideas around the initial platform primitives. We want to build. How is this different. From square crypto square doesn't give direction to square crypto only funding. They choose to work on l. d. k. And are doing an incredible job. Td we'll be focused on creating a platform. Business will open source our work along the way so when you read that. A lot of people noted that they sort of sounded like they wanted to build defy on top of bitcoin and mike brooks tweets around the announcement seemed to point in that direction. As well quote. I also believe that technology has always been a story of decentralisation from the printing press to the internet to bitcoin technology has the power to distribute power to the masses and unleash human potential for good. And i'm convinced. This is the next step. As jack said we're going to be biasing towards being open and transparent so we'll be sharing a lot more about our plans in the coming days and weeks we're also going to be thinking of ways to include the community in our planet so stay tuned well at the very end of last week. We got confirmation that they were indeed looking in that decentralized finance direction. Here's mike brooks threat about it from friday. There's been a lot of speculation about what. Td is an isn't over. The last few weeks or team has been determining what needs to be determined. We wanted to finally share direction. And we have some questions we believe. Bitcoin will be the native currency of the internet while there are many projects to help make the internet more. Decentralized our focuses solely on a sound global monetary system for all

"You can think about this as a decentralized exchange for fiat as we said this platform will be entirely developed in public open source open protocol and any wallet will be able to use no foundation or governance model that td controls permission lists or bust. We love for this to be bitcoin. Native top to bottom. And that's leading us to consider things like ours case. Smart however the gaps needed to build this maybe two large which would also consider other chains as a bridge some of the gaps. We currently see our around cost and scale ability. Lightning is solving for this with payments. We need to solve for exchange infrastructure between digital assets like stable coins. And here's the question and challenge what projects exist today to help us all these problems in a bitcoin native way. Now that we've determined our direction you'll hear a lot more from us. As we progress but for now. Thanks bitcoin netizens. Many many people took mike up on that question about who had been building similar things. One of those was bisque. Who tweeted jack. We've spent the last five plus years building bisque. V one to be the go-to peer to peer decks for bitcoin. Power users were working on v. Two right now to take on everyone else. let's talk. our heads together could result in something better than any of us could imagine. Jack actually responded to that so. Let's go meet bisque. This is the tweet thread. That's pinned to the top of their twitter. Why bisque many of you already know. Please share the spread with those who don't t. l. dr bisque is a paradigm shift biscuits to other exchanges. The way bitcoin is to banks. Why run your own bitcoin note. You already know. Trust no one sovereignty no asking permission. That's the whole point of bitcoin. No compromises so why compromise when trading bitcoin like bitcoin bisque is open source software. You don't trade on a website. You trade on a program on your computer directly with others on a peer to peer network. It's kind of like bittorrent but for bitcoin so also like bitcoin. When you run bisky become master of your own note on a peer to peer network except instead of validating blocks for the bitcoin network. You provide liquidity to the bisque network. Just like bitcoin enables you to be your own bank. Bisque allows you to be your own exchange. Once you see that the case for bisque is clear and it's hard to go back to anything else besides the folks who were pointing to a specific technology that they wanted the team at square to look into there. Were also a fair number of cynical takes particularly from other non. Bitcoin defy communities who found it somewhat annoying that bitcoin maxi's would spend years ripping on defy only to be into it when a bitcoin or wants to do it. Someone i think wrote defy on. Bitcoin is like an app store. Blackberry while i understand that frustration and genuinely wish that people would spend less time ripping on each other on twitter. I do think it's more intellectually coherent than many of those critics might think if your base is carrying about the nature of the underlying asset a global sound monetary system. And you have problems with how a theory or any other layer. One defied chain was created or as governed. That doesn't mean you wouldn't want the sort of decentralized financial rails on top of your sound money asset in general. It just means that you're not willing to sacrifice the principles of that asset at the center. Now there's a ton of debate there. I'm just saying that it's not actually intellectually inconsistent to be bitcoin only but still interested in defy. That happens on. Bitcoin either way the more interesting thing to me by a lot is the relevant context. We've just gone through this very fascinating process of watching the fight around the infrastructure. Bill happened where. It's very clear that certain parts of the us government are extraordinarily nervous about this decentralized non-custodial turn for finance. These tools are evolving. A hell of a lot faster than the regulators ability to actually wrap their heads around them. So it's to be interesting to see what happens when a large publicly traded company. Wades into the space for now. I think it's pretty awesome. That square is building. This and i think it's extra awesome that they're doing it as not just some sideshow but as a mean business division. I'm certainly going to be keeping a strong eye out on this one. And i anticipate that we'll have a lot more to discuss about it in the weeks to come for now guys. I appreciate your listening. And i hope your week is getting off to an awesome. Start until tomorrow be safe and take care of each other piece..

"Jack. Dorsey was his typical understated self way. That kathy reiterated vision. Bitcoin is rules. Rules-based monetary policy. Jack reiterated his belief in bitcoin as the internet's native money. There were a few other interesting nuggets as well. Jack discussed again his belief. That design is both one of the biggest challenges but also one of the biggest opportunities for improvement in bitcoin. Especially around self custody. I might summarize his position by saying that yes. Self custody is indeed integral to the full unique benefit. Bitcoin offers but the solution can't just be educating or informing people about the importance of self custody. It has to be about designs that make that easy square has obviously set out to do this with their new hardware wallet. Initiative and jack also called out some products. He thought we're on the right track when asked about his biggest current focus. Jack talked about blue sky blue skies initiative to build a decentralized social media engine that would reimagined social networks without a centralized authority. This came up in the wake of twitter. banning trump. jack talked about both why they made the decision why he thought it would be better. If centralized platform authorities didn't have that sort of power going forward the intention of blue skies to build something that both twitter and others can eventually use now. nothing new was revealed. I just thought it was notable that he listed it so highly among his priorities speaking of priorities the crown below his name listed. td as his affiliation tvd squares new business division focused on bringing decentralized financial services to bitcoin when that show clearly is that jack believed the implications of bitcoin as an internet native money. Were fundamentally different business models for the internet. He argued for example that if bitcoin had existed when twitter started they wouldn't have had to use. Advertising is the business model. One of the notable parts of the show came when. Ilan asked jack if twitter would accept. Bitcoin is payment from advertisers. Sort of set it up to be a big announcement moment but jack demured a bit effectively saying that he was more interested in trying to shift the underlying model entirely which is a very true answer but also shows that jack god bless him does not think in terms of flashing media moments. Finally when asked what his hope for bitcoin was jack said that it was to bring about world. Peace to be clear. This is not your nineteen sixties. Reebok's hippy world peace desire instead it reflects a set of beliefs around bitcoin including that a sound money standard could reduce resources for making war. And that second by breaking the state's monopoly on money it makes the state's monopoly on violence less potent more on that statement on violence in just a minute now. Let's get to ilan and i. I think it's worth asking. Why why after all of this does. The bitcoin communities still spent so much time. Courting eel on. I've thought a lot about this..

"I spend an enormous amount of time searching for Tammy's in the Jacksonville area and eventually found her Tammy McFadden. Here's her story in the summer of 2016. McFadden, who had been working for a decade as an anti money laundering specialist, noticed that Deutsche Bank's computer system had been flagging transactions involving Jared Kushner's family real estate business, and she investigated this and what she found. Where that these transactions, the Kushner Cos. Appeared to be moving money. Two Russian individuals, remember this is during the 2016 campaign and that struck her as a bright red flag waving in her face, and she did what you do in that situation, which is She typed up a suspicious activity report and then send it on to her managers for review, And that's when the problems started. It's not that uncommon for a bank computer to flag a transaction and even for a specialist to write it up. But then the report didn't go to financial crimes. Higher ups. It went to the division where Rosemary Rab Lik works, private banking, which is very unusual. Normally, you would keep this out of the hands of the business division. Where the clients it's because that for I think I'm obvious reasons, which is that you don't want the people making the decision of whether to file this our tow have a powerful financial interest in preserving a relationship with a client. Private banking decided not to send the report to the U. S treasury. There might be all sorts of reasons for this. But remember, by this time Deutsche Bank had already be examined its relationship with Trump and was already.

Inside the Downfall of the XFL

"XFL was supposed to be the league that can finally make spring football work with financial backing from WWe's Vince McMahon in veteran leadership from commissioner Oliver Luck. The idea seemed promising. But just five weeks in Copen, nineteen forced the xfl hit pause, and then unlike other leaks. It announced it was shutting down for good. Today the inside story of why the xfl closed doors, and whether it could have been saved. I'M UNICOM'S IT's Tuesday June sixteenth. This is espn daily presented by marathon. Shaken. What's Shakin what she can not much some to you're talking to you Kevin Siefert writes about the NFL and the xfl for ESPN. So Kevin the last time you and I talked was to preview the xfl so excited about this new league time the rules and how funding would be, and whether it would work, and while sadly, we are gathered here today to autopsy the xfl the. League officially suspended their operations on April tenth season quote the uncertainty of the current environment, obviously referencing the corona virus pandemic. What was it like inside the League on that day? It was pretty wild. Actually talked to Kurt unsecure. WHO's the president of the Saint? Louis? Battle. Hawks and he heard some rumors he had wondered if the League would. Need to cut back in some way like many businesses, but he at most thought there might be some layoffs or potentially some furloughs, but when he woke up that morning. Like many other xfl employees he saw the. Direct deposit from. His pay. Was much larger than normal. Anyone who's ever worked in an office setting or a for a company of any kind knows that on your last day you get a paycheck for your salary, and also for any occasion time accumulated, and that's what that's. What happened here and that was really the first sign that he occurred hunziker or anybody. Really who worked for the xfl knew that not only were some changes about to happen, but. Some really ominous events were about the Kerr that day. And they found out. There was a going to be an all company conference. Call at about noon. And that's where they were informed that everyone who works for the League was terminated. Kevin Win all that down. The XFL was on hold like pretty much everything else right I mean the pandemic hit a sports world back in March when the NBA system. It's season. WWe Closes headquarters in Stamford Connecticut days later then on March. Twentieth six fell big flat out of their season, and said we look forward to playing full seasons for you, and with you in twenty twenty one, so it seemed like at the time the plan wasn't afford the league entirely, but just hit pause. Pick up when the pandemic was over. Why do you think they thought they could keep going back then? I think they they felt pretty good that in the five weeks at the season had managed to get through they had. Gone a long way. Towards proving the concept they had pulled in about twenty million league revenues, and they're projecting forty six million through the rest of the year. They're TV. Ratings had dipped, but they were about to go on a run of having most of their games, either on ABC or Fox and so, that would probably at least stabilized the ratings, and they thought that they would have for the first time since they had started building the league time to really sit down, pull apart their thoughts and come up with a better product, the following year Vince McMahon who the owner of the League he had pulled almost four hundred million dollars out of WWe stocks into his personal account to finance. Really for two or three years, and so they knew the money was there, he had put up about two hundred million, and was committed to paying another hundred and fifty million a year for a few years. Until they could potentially get the profitability, so there was. A lot of confidence that the money existed to continue subsidizing the League in that long term plan would not be sacrificed just because the season had to end more abruptly than they had hoped. I didn't know that so the xfl Vince McMahon rather was using wwe money to fund the XFL. Right away you know Vincent Man's the owner of w w well early state, the founder and the CEO, and so he had lots of stock, and so he used that stock eventually to fund the XFL. There was a division, a financial and business division, but you know there was also a shared services agreement between the two. Certainly the way they were able to recruit coaches and front office people and even the Commissioner Oliver luck the way they were able to convince people to come aboard was the show them the plan the financial plan that he had to spend money over the over those three years, there was public documents. That showed that the stock had been sold in that the money was now. In Vincent. Man's hands to fund the XFL and that's why they they felt so good about it. So the xfl like every other sport announces. Hey, we're going on pause. Then a couple of weeks pass. What was the state of play at the beginning of April? Really at the beginning of April the XFL was in off season mode. Oliver Lock. WHO's the commissioner had been asked to come up with twenty, twenty, one I jets. He had asked all the department has all the team presidents to come up with plans to market the teams throughout the long off season. That was to come. Everything was in the XFL. Offices were being directed towards this twenty twenty one season and a lot of times towards the twenty twenty two seasons well, they were looking ahead, saying okay, here's what we want to do in twenty twenty one. We WanNa make it better, and this is what we want and twenty twenty two, and then then we look to see if we can be profitable and this was all going on really. Really, in between the time, the xfl canceled season, and when it shuttered and had bankruptcy, and so those plans were all compiled, and I'll reluctant demand to Vince McMahon, and then they didn't hear anything. They didn't hear anything back, and they thought maybe it was because Wrestlemainia was going on. People had their attention there, but that was something that caused a little bit of unease as the second week of April arrived and that. They've been asked to create these budgets. And then there have been radio silence. So Oliver Overlook. Who was commissioner of the XFL also Andrew looks father for those who don't know and has been a sports executive for years used to NFL Europe who's an executive with the NCWA? He's going about his business. Assuming the league's going to come back putting together some plans, and then what happens. And then he gets a call or actually gets a letter on April ninth stating that he had been fired for cause and the letter came from. Vincent man and from the his attorney listing supposed. Infractions to his contract into his duties that Oliver Luck had apparently committed in his response, Oliver Luck in his legal papers, said he had never been told of any of these issues, but on April Ninth I, think about five o'clock is when Oliver Luck found out, he'd been fired. So what elect do? You know he is already in his home. In Indianapolis, the xfl offices were closed, and so he immediately got with his lawyer. Because when you get fired, because usually that can mean that the guarantee in your contract is no longer valid, and so he has sued for wrongful termination, not only disputing the reasons that Vince McMahon fired him which among other reasons, whereas the use of company cell phone for personal reasons which. Many people in the xfl on in the public to be an awfully little bit of a petty, and that's not even editorializing. It's just a fact. You know petty reason to fire sports commissioner WHO's making. Between five and seven million dollars a year, and so he not only is disputing the facts of what was in the latter, his termination letter, but also that the xfl never gave him the thirty days. That's required in his contract to correct any issues that ownership is having, and so that is currently playing out in court. We'll see who wins on that or whether there is some kind of negotiation that occurs, but at the moment Oliver Luck seeking twenty three point eight million dollars from Vince McMahon, who can fill the contract that he signed in two thousand, eighteen to be the commissioner of the xfl.

"That's a big one for us and unified workspace is another one. So those are the two spots you mentioned that are fairly recent. And so we like to make sure that with the vision we're about the visionaries within the company. But then with the products we're talking about what are what do we have that is innovative. And so we work really closely with the cloud team in coming up with the messaging and then connecting that vision solution work to the demand gen work that's in the field too, so making sure that we're working hand in hand not only from providing that creative umbrella -- dangling that carrot so to speak -- but having that open up the door for sales teams for the demand creation team to really go in and deliver on that and and have those deeper conversations, so it doesn't feel like there's a hard and fast line . Consumers are using technology and consumers populate the IT teams. Yeah so I mean and this is everyone's a consumer so that you can't get around that. And I don't run the consumer campaign but I work very closely with them. It's a pure mind that does that but we talk really Intimately about how do we connect the work? So we're lifting all boats and making sure that what we're looking at from a consumer standpoint. We're talking about our premium products. A little known fact some of the Dell computers because the computer division is still called Dell and probably always will be They've won more awards at CES than almost any other brand and so we have some really innovative computer technology that is is high end and so when we look to connect the work we really look at the best of that consumer work and connect that to our B2B side. And making sure that you know it's working for both so if there's a consumer campaign that works really well it provides lift to our business is as well so we we. We know that and so we worked together to make sure that we're talking at the right points. I'm going to digress from your specific day to day but I think that you do support small business as well but there were two activation that happened. One's happening right now and one was just last week and I wanted to cite them because I just think that they're good examples and it still seems that. So much of what I think of is the support that Dell technologies provides to small business as well. So my friend Ramon Ray created an all day. Virtual small business conference and Dell Technologies was one of the sponsors and an S VP of your Business Division was talking about how they are really intent on being accessible and being helpful. You've got like virtual IT teams behind you. So how does that ladder up to the overall positioning of the company because it seems like accessibility And information as we all struggle so much today -- like we did trying to get this podcast going -- is more important than ever. Small business has always been such a core part of technologies from day one really. And as the company has grown we've never lost that small business spirit and I will say Michael Dell is an entrepreneur at heart and so he has like a huge soft spot for small business. Not only from just really admiring what they do but wanting to support them and so even now when small businesses is really struggling We've actually doubled down in understanding. How can we support small businesses right now so I know there have been a lot of offers out there in terms of like? How do we extend financing and support to small businesses? But we also have we just recently launched a small business campaign to that really showcases how we shifted as a company -- so our small business DellT echnologies advisors are now all working from home but yet still supporting small business and productivity has not decreased at all and so we just wanted to make sure that we're really clear with small business that we're still here for you as a company. We know that small businesses are shifting. And we want to know how we can help and and really just be as committed as ever and making sure that Our small business partners feel that as well. It's great the other example that I threatened to talk about is. I'm so so happy you're on this podcast. I love podcasting. I love audio share. We are Yup Yup and you guys With the Small Business Division again in particular have partnered with Entercom and created the first ever virtual podcast conference. I don't know if I'm going to pronounce it right. . a funny name. But you could make it memorable. One of the things when you look at the podcast landscape, it's really confusing when you dive into it. 'cause it's like where do you start? There's so much out there? And so what we really wanted to do was really have a sharp edge tool and say hey if we're going to get people together and talk about a relevant themes. What are some of the podcasts and partners that we would recommend they dive into and so what we did was we pulled together were podcasts that what really highlights thought leaders that are talking about the relevant topics for our customers. And I'd be remiss if I didn't do a shoutout to Trailblazers with Walter Isaacson. Absolutely Walter Isaacson, love him. That's one of my team and we we been running Trailblazers for the past, Oh Gosh the it's fourth season. For the past few years it is really been successful in it's a podcast really talking about disruption and Walter Isaacson is the host and so we just we just delve into different technology and different topics. And the one that we're highlighting for the PodFerence is about jobs and job seeking and so we thought that was relevant right now. But we're excited about this because we see a lot of opportunity and podcasts but the other challenge of Who's doing a podcast right now? So we really want to make sure we're highlighting a really good thought leaders that can provide value to our customers. It's great and I think that with having you on this podcast next year at Podference will be Insider interviews with E.B. Moss! We'll do it . also I like the way you explained it because it's almost like these are the ones that have received almost like your version of the Good Housekeeping seal of approval. There's a lot of good podcasts out. I listen podcasts too and I'm always trying to figure out you know what's what's the one I'm gonna listen to next. And it's a little over whelming and special just finding something fast and so this really helps edit that down. I just want to mention Trailblazers again because I think that is out now is interesting because it's about exercising and but from Walter Isaacson Perspective and of course. I happen to be reading Leonardo DaVinci right now and he wrote the book on Steve Jobs But it's more like the history of exercise and he talks about Jack La Lane from the fifties . and that's where I love about trailblazers. Is that it it's like such a nerd lovers podcast in that it really does take the history of any given subject and you give you a quick overview of it and we often talk about. Aren't doing this podcast. We want people to have dinner party conversation when they're done listening to our podcast because it because it is it's like it makes you feel a little bit smarter and so interesting and entertaining as well. Perfect. There's so much content on the Dell Technologies site Your head must be spinning. But there's really beautiful videos. I liked the Otto Robots video. It's really cool awesome. Yeah I want one of those because I don't have a furry friend. And then there's also webinars and you've done Executive to executive conversations. And so you're trying to humanize your executives as well on your site. There's there's so much content. I don't know how you keep on top of it or prioritize in your job as pastor when a time when you have to do that famous word pivot and be agile and contents interesting so one of my favorite stories on content is when we became Dell Technologies three years ago we have one of these moments of like. 'Oh No' because we looked at our company and we had Dell content and we had EMC content. We had all the stuff. We didn't have Dell Technologies content and so it was an opportunity to start from scratch and create content for your brand and so we did take that opportunity to really look at a content strategy and understand how to build content for different personas from a CEO to an IT decision maker. How would we approach that? Especially now that we have this opportunity to start clean and so we have the site Perspectives where we do a lot of content that's just about emerging technology but then we also pivot to talking about our customers in doing stories like Otto and Draper. There's a lot of great customer stories out there where we go in and we start to tell their stories on how technology weaves into their business strategy and so You know really keeping up that quality in that consistency so we partner a lot with our communications and with our events teams Really to make sure that the content we're producing can be used in concert to scale. But we've realized that these days people want to be able to find it find it quickly take it correctly so they can really just start to like dive deep and go down the different rabbit holes that they want to go down and we have something there are there any other brands or marketers that you admire. Who are doing things well right now? I have to say a brand that we keep an eye on a lot is Microsoft up over the past few years. They've just really gone from being known as office to now they're known as cloud and so really taking the investment of their business transforming that into how they go to market as a brand is something that is really admirable. They've been able to pivot that very clearly very Very quickly and it's really it's shown across the board in their stock prices well in terms of marketers a one that POPs to mind is Fiona Carter from. AT& T. I could listen to her forever. I mean she's a beautiful accent. But you know just like she's really smart has a lot of good things to say about both the creative and the agency side as well as was the chief brand officer . really managing. How do you manage brand? How'd you align to the business? And then how do you get the most out of your agencies as well and her? Her experience is just so well rounded and she has such great insights great in of course. I love your agency, MediaCom. They're a fantastic partner They have been for many many years and they're completely They strategic. are our Global Agency and so we don't know what we do without them. They give us great insights as well as guidance. So you used a good word insights. Tell me about how you balance creative and data who the art science. Yeah so one of the challenges that any brand marketer has is how the heck do you measure brand advertising? Because you're not necessarily tied to a click, a call a and transactional sale, but we absolutely recognized that the brand has to influence that positively ...so we do a lot of measurements. Honestly that really looks at the creative as well as what it's driving and so we will do message testing we will test our creative so we understand is the message that we intended to come out of this

Stranded in India (#3)

"Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of this week at home. The weekly show. That really doesn't talk about much anymore. Because the entire travel industry has started just disappeared. But that's okay. We have some decent stories and stuff to talk about money. Miscarry aren't I am coming to you? From Chile Minneapolis Minnesota. Where believe it or not it? Actually we had a snowstorm here in April If you've ever heard the song sometimes it snows in April by Prince. That's pretty much what it's like with us as usual also at home Mr Chris Christianson. How're you doing sir? I'm doing well. I'm actually thinking of doing some travelling this afternoon. I may go to the back yard. I wish I had a backyard to get outside. I gotta go. Mingle with the masses very unsafe. Also with US coming from a slightly different part of California. Jen Leo. Are we doing jen? I'm doing great also at home have yard and last last week we had a rain storm unusual for southern California yet. Oh my goodness and in how is it having your daughter at home with you fulltime? I I have the luxury of getting to hang out with her and also She's been self schooling so I have not had any homeschooling woes. Her her caseload is pretty light. So we've been sort of exploring other opportunities and having fun with it. You have a perfect child. I'm not GonNa say that if you Chris so schooling just sounds like a fancy way of saying you're lazy self self telling fancy way of saying. I don't really have to do anything I think. It's the opposite child who you didn't have to tell them to get their homework done. And the other one who was only vaguely aware that maybe there was homework assigned was at the. Second Child. Chris no that was the first show really. Wow from another part of California. Mr Spud Hilton. How you doing Sir? Doing Great Hanging out here at weight for home where I've put a different bottle of alcohol in each room and so I can go bar hopping later and our guests this week. She is an emmy nominated television. News reporter she is the author of the book one hundred things to do in Columbus Ohio before you die and just recently got back from the United States after being stuck in India for. I don't know as close to a month. I think these neutra hamper thank you. It's a wonderful to actually be in my home so I know people talk about being stuck in board. I thought Gosh you know. At least you're in your home I was stuck in a fishing camp for For many weeks during the lockdown. So happy to be here. Thank you for inviting me. We will be getting to your story soon. But let's start to talk about some of the things that have have really only one news story. Still I mean there's travel The new story is lonely. Planet shutdown several their offices. I don't know if you saw this. But they have shut down their Melbourne office which was originally the the homebase for lonely planet. They've shut down there one office leaving. Only I think an office in Ireland and Tennessee. They've also shut down several of their business divisions and they've also shutdown the thorn tree forum. Which was there really popular Online forum do you think there's a future for lonely planet an for Expect to see other publications making such announcements soon. Yes to the second one and no for the first one. I think one of the things about lonely plant. That's different than Some places is that they've got such a huge collection Of Resources that can be repurpose down the line. So theoretically they might shutdown putting out the actual physical books which would make certain about sense. Being fewer and fewer people are actually using them but they also have a photo collection in an age win. Almost everybody wants to be able to use photos tea or you know. Put on their website or things like that and so they have assets that they could probably live off of greatly reduced for a while or sell off in a big way Either way I don't think we'll be seeing the return of the physical books but they still have a lot of assets That that they can continue to put out there and update fairly cheaply. I agree with you. Spend I also think because of the large amount of collateral that they have. It's an incredible opportunity to get really creative with it. Right like think about their churches all their photos but they're armchair division of books right although stuff all those books that Don George Edited. What if they started doing virtual online shows with readings and combined that with photos or started doing special photo event streaming? I don't know I mean the. The opportunities are endless. But I think there is a there is a an opening to get creative. And maybe it's not going to run the whole business but is a way to sort of keep their brand in front of mind while people are at home and looking and learn yearning for any kind of connection and travel dreaming right. I mean you look at National Geographic. And you can't swing a dead cat without hitting another Coffee Table Book or a National Geographic. Sound found some really niche way to repurpose all these photos. They have and throw it into a new into a new book to put out there and I think for while while people aren't traveling people are GonNa want some my what my boss used to call wanderlust porn. Which is you know. It's they WanNa look at the pictures of the places that they can't go right now A lot of that. They'll do online and that maybe that's where Those coffee table books will end up migrating more but But I think you're right National Geographic's done it and lonely plants already done some of that but I think the opportunity to just to continue and sort of. Forget the guidebooks. I think we're gonNA find as you usually find. Any sort of downturns is that companies that have good cash reserves companies. That have you know. In some cases better management will make it where other companies that. You may look at it and say. I can't believe that they couldn't make it. A just won't because of their you know their cash reserves or how they're overhead is or all sorts of things so they'll definitely be winners and losers after this sort of thing and that's true with the companies Veteran publishing that's true with airlines tour companies. In the in the business I think is that there will be some some fallout there. We've already seen that in the local restaurants. I don't know how many of you have already heard that one of your local restaurants has gone out of business but we've had one perennial favorite here. I suspect that they were thinking about retiring. And you know it just got way too hard. So they closed and that's not going to be the last one by any means. Yeah I think we may have mentioned this last episode but I was talking to somebody who is an insider with Houston tourism. And know they they. There's a belief there at least this there was at least a week a week or two ago. There was a belief that they may lose as many as forty of their current restaurants. And they're you know it begs the question Places like New Orleans. The food scene actually got better after their disaster it got better because their food scene had stagnated it was all either legacy stuff like Gallo. Twas Antoine's and you know thing Brennan's and stuff like that or it was the other end. Which was the crappy tourist food and there wasn't a lot in between at least not in the major areas that people go and basically Katrina wiped out a lot of places but it also created opportunities in the in the coming years for a lot of places and so they suddenly got a lot of very cool kind of gastro pubs and boutique like places and things that they really didn't have much before and that became better now here. I don't know that that's going to be the case. Because it's more about money thing My belief that if San Francisco loses like say thirty percent of their restaurants. What I'm worried about is that that thirty percent will be the ones with character. They will be the mom and pop places they will be the small pocket places. Which is what Chris is talking about is there will be places that on a in an industry that has very not a great margin to begin with You know a lot of these places are GONNA go out. That are the places with character or the family or local owned places. And we'RE GONNA get stuck with a whole bunch more arby's and chipotle's so that's what I'm worried about.

"Are People out there and you guys are in the top two number four before or okay. You have time to spend thirty minutes a day when you first onboard somebody why how is that even possible. It's about prioritization so for me. I know that sometimes when I'm finding that leverage partner for me that I need to slow down slow down to speed up essentially so I know that I China my calendar to ensure that the things that I'm passing off are going to be passed off in a way that I don't have to think about them again and you don't get in trouble later like it doesn't WanNa combat to haunt you later exactly. Let's do it once. Let's do it right again if you're really diligent with your hours so I talked years partners agents about how do you really maximize every hour of your day. Were being hyperfocused when you're actually working at official with your time. There's plenty of time in your day. Atasoy Atasoy says Every twenty four hours in the day so some people cheat so much some people achieved so little. It's really about just making that time for what's important and for me consistently the leverage because again if they're tasks that I had been doing that I now have to pass over to a virtual professional. I WanNa make sure that they know how to do it. So boom thirty minutes and never have to think about that task again. That's often the my experience as you train people correctly once they haven't recorded they can go back to that resource and it's consistent assistant then adding are layers and more things on top of that. You never have to go back and repeat yourself. And that's one of the things that's always the most frustrating to me terms to training people is when you're like. Oh my gosh. She told you that the two days ago we'll do. We really have to revisit this. And I've never had that with a virtual professional legitimately call. We call that compound leverage because once you've given a task away you get that time. Back in you reinvest time into the business building activities or the dollar productive activities. And you just you. You can get more and more throughout your career back as you properly delegate but most people just won't simply take the time yes and once you get to the point to where you might have a whole network of ritual professionals working for your team. We actually Halloween Virtual professional right now. WHO's Chrissa and she now leads? Trains mentors coaches progress. Virtual professionals that's again was an opportunity for her and also provided more leverage everyone on our team previously previously who is leading RVP's so well and what's beautiful about that is you've got your leverage leveraging and you've taught that person how to do it correctly and and there you go okay The next kind of place that I think you can add value to to the audience is what systems need to be in place to properly collaborator of virtual professional. And and this is probably another area that people get lazy or they don't Wanna spend the money or they don't know so everything you can give him here would be valuable so I would say the number one thing is to brain dump and get really granular without brain dump in terms of creating checklists. Where for me you? There are many things that keep me up at night. But if I did a checklist right just get things out of my head out of my head. I feel so much better. So I'm thinking about okay. There are these things I wanNA leverage. I'm going to sit down editor brain dump. I'm GONNA do step by step by step again. It doesn't take very long because if you're doing this already you probably know it so well that you can talk about it. You know they longer. You can read it definitely quickly so I think the number one thing is having really good checklists because ideally any part of your business you should be able to hand it over to somebody else initially able to follow whether you're guidebook or your playbook whatever that might be and figure it out so for us it's really documenting everything that we do. I who had a slow you down because there's two here number one. The only thing that you have in a business that is valuable is your processing system yet and your database. You have a documented process system and a client base that keeps referring back to you than you have something to sell. If you don't have one or two of those things you just don't have anything and I think this is a hard thing for people to understand. What what were your thoughts around that? It's definitely so key. I mean you have to figure out where your values and where your business is coming from and then you'd have to really focus on what matters so the biggest thing for me is that we also have a lot of time on things that don't move dog things that don't matter so once you really can get real with yourself and it comes back to ripping off abandoning leg. All right. We're we're okay with a change this associated with this you're going to be able to make those optimizations without ever feeling like you're too connected to processors similar model. Whatever else I do think that a lot of it comes down to coming from a place of always being in growthorientated honestly and having that culture that cultural background of everything cultural piece will attract your database in your clients in all of those referrals? But also I think your culture comes out in those checklists team in terms of while parts of those checklists or those processes actually matters interesting with letting things go. But don't that's a lot of it. I mean it's simple. It's back to basic stuff. We're not honestly. We're not doing anything highly innovative. It's just that we're consistent or habitual. People show every day. We work as a team and we really organically from the ground up building culture. Okay so we've got checklists do a brain dumb. The report a video them every single day. One thing that's unique about well not unique. I have a similar business. We have twelve hundred virtual doc professionals in their all work remotely so they're in different locations so everything for us is virtual were on a zoom call right now now. How were you guys organized with your twenty different? You know independent offices and in your virtual professionals who are not even in country like. How do you organize communication and meetings and all that like let's get you so oftentimes professionals base and Hitless for the day in the morning to say this is what I'm going to be working on so we know exactly One of the things that is I would say a core value on the administrative administrative side of our business is that we don't micromanage. We don't look over people's shoulders. We hire accountable people so that we never have to feel like. We're micromanaging. That wherever checking up on someone or whatever else so typically even in this little people in staff here we all have him this hit list. This is my prioritization list for the day. This is what I wonder what she is and that at the end of the day. It's the same thing. This is what I achieved. This is what may help with. This is where I might need a little bit more training. We also use slack. I mean just to instant message. During the day or Poplin Zoom we need to evolve our built uh-huh brevity some of our teams. We use Trello for collaboration. US Air table where we have all of our passwords in Auburn Data and everything that we can achieve On but we also consistently in this is the cool part we include. RVP Is an older teams across the country so much facebook groups and we she come together for all company meetings for consistently really talking about a new initiatives. New Focus is things are changing were optimizing we also have sunny before we do a lot of contests programs where we did a weight loss challenge at the end of the year for four months and whatever ritual professionals said. Hey I want to do this. We do which some of them will join as well where we do masterminds in discussions around those up so everyone in an organization and I don't care where are has the same opportunities to buy into into our culture to participate in our culture. We do have a culture of accountability to so if we're talking about all right. I'm struggling with getting in my thirty minutes of exercise every day. Yeah I was trying to hurt health. Challenge you've a whole group of people who are GONNA wrap their arms around June support you in that and I think our virtual professionals late feel at two because they are part and parcel of what we do in part of a team it's again basic but they are not and may contribute so much to us we are looking at. How can we help up? Grow that and help me help. Pour into them in the personal level financial levels fitness level. Whatever it may be what are the things in your world like? What are the the things or the pieces of advice? You didn't know before you worked with my best that you now know that you want to share with people so they can walk away from this conversation going out okay. I mean do this before I hire like what are those tidbits are or things. Yeah I think the biggest thing is having a mindset of leverage to consistently be thinking about who could be doing this for me so that I can also get to that next level so I can consistently me thinking about the strategy or how to open up a New Vision Business Division. Or how can I create a new business of our world so the biggest thing is consistently thinking okay. What's that next stage? We're GONNA be for me. What's that next growth opportunity going to be? And what am I going to have to backfill and then what opportunities does that create for somewhere else. That's the base thing is just having that mindset consistently thinking doing this better than I can be. I came on board as Our Marketing Director generation and social media very quickly. It was one of the things I said. I'm not passionate about this anymore. I need to leverage it. I need your base by selves with someone better her can come in and know about all the trends and know about all of the different you know algorithms and whatever else that wasn't anymore and that was okay so I think it's okay also oh to be honest with yourself figure out where actually really WANNA be. What role do I want to be in and then figure out what opportunity can create for someone else based on that approach is myself? That's good that's really good and I still don't understand tick tock. I know that's the thing. I'm not sure what it's about lunch. One day my daughters will tell me when they're old enough to you know just someone else. Okay so have a leverage mindset growth-oriented Taurean to get the systems in place. Don't be afraid to train block on your calendar. These are some of your best tips for folks considering doing this. What's the what's the If you were to like nail value like what's the value of hiring professionals for your business is that.

"Can especially if we can kind of maybe put a bunch of your ideas or podcasts in one neat little package and talk about that right so as not to invade Steve space yeah so yeah I feel fine about just go ahead. I mean like how was it that you're even on Steve's show because Steve's as a business so what are you doing over there I work for a company that has a business division that in that's what the that's what made my interviews are about second city has a business division yes I can see works and that's a comedy company what company an improv company but I mean do you know comedy for messaging right comedy is a sticky way this is why the Superbowl you watch Superbowl talk comedy adds a because that really sticks and then improvisation is the ability for human beings to be more agile be more change ready more resilient when I go to second city though I'm not thinking about business or change I'm thinking about a let's go have a fun time well there's that too so that's the I presume that was the genesis of second city a well yes sex is not not advertise itself is like going to the dentist or anything so. same thing with like you know we're gonna open a you could you could you could probably help me but I mean the genesis of second city was like was improv right yeah but but what we get many people don't realize is the genesis of the improv exercises that among at trained and we're done by a sociologist in the twenties and thirties agree items whole house yeah. no kidding set the Segway than to these business applications was natural yeah absolutely okay so there you are doing something like that with Steve what's this business than of a series of podcasts about the power of getting uncomfortable well yeah so this is this is a conversation you I have because LF your producers my producer so we'll end up talking about like what what teams are you saying in one of the things that I saw over the course of like these three podcast one was with a Harvard Business School professor one was with a black studies sociologist and one was with like a branding guy all of them talked about the power of getting uncomfortable as a way to innovate make canoe and get ahead in we know little about about this at second city because in improv a lot of it is getting you use to ambiguity you know when you're creating something out a script you really have to be comfortable that this thing can go anywhere which means you have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. the title of their your podcast is getting gas and getting the yes and and then and I I I I bring that point up because it seems like you're touching on that here what is the meaning of the title of your podcast right so improvisation if it's groups of people are making something out of nothing without a script which is kind of what we all do everyday in our in our work in our lives no one's handing a scripts normally we get no where we say no and actually can't get very far by just saying yes we have to say yes and we have to affirm and contribute in order to explore and heighten so you really have to see the need to be right which is a big thing in improv and allow by your standing with someone else for maybe this idea that is emerging to be co created and not just the product of your single imagination but the discomfort comes where discomfort comes in that we don't want we don't want to work in a script we want to have our ideas we want to have a road map in that's the way our brains are wired so really these business people are these sociologists telling you that if you want to be successful in business you're not gonna find that fertile ground right you find yourself uncomfortable yeah and that and also so the other idea that was coming true is you have to let other voices and an ice come into your world to make discoveries because you just see too much of a great example of this was in World War two this is great story in in Cary pasando from harbor talks about this that they were looking at the planes that were coming back from battle and examining where the bullet holes were in there like look we got to reinforce the place for these people holes were but they had no correlation to actually the planes that were coming back so the statistician Abram Abraham Wald came and they brought in and look at us like what are you seeing and he's like you know what I'm saying you don't need to worry about where the bullet holes are you should worry about where they aren't because where they aren't means the the planes I got shot down. you know these these the the bulls were hitting the place where was okay the the battle landed so yeah they can withstand that yes where the bullet holes on this plane is the place that we do have that's a fast that is mind blowing and yet it's it's certainly obvious simple but it's not simple if it you know I always talk about this which is I've lived essentially in the same area in Chicago for my entire time working second city which is thirty one years I drive the same way I've stopped looking or seeing anything new or different because it just this is always the way I drive and so it's very hard to get yourself out of your your own patterns and they'll only things you see so the you know all of these great thinkers talk about the need to save that Allen at Adamson who's a marketing guy talk about leadership because find the desk farthest away from the customer and that's where the person in charge often sets which is a terrible place to be you don't want to be for this the way you want to be in with your customers actually see what's going on and that require you know with this is the thing we do when they've success can sometimes be a trap because you start to just because her believe everything you touch is golden and you keep doing things the same way and maybe you have a little bit more success but down the line things change and you might not be able to be keeping up at that point we were at an event here for this radio station not that long ago and the guy said that Netflix is an example of that at a time when ninety nine percent of their business was rentals they decided to get out of the rental this right because they knew that this was not. where that industry was going sure can you imagine somebody running the register ninety nine cents on every dollar coming in this rental is go we got to get out of this this is a bad idea to go but he gonna do we gonna do sales were going to do streaming wait that's not even been invented or it's one percent of the business you are right that that's what they get yeah and blockbuster didn't by Netflix. about that think about that and think about the fact that you know Kodak in in film and not going digital at the end and by the way the people who invented the iPod they all work to Kodak really yeah well can you give me another example the what's a more practical application of this I mean all right so I understand those and accounts but I don't know I managing a machine shop or a school or or or business how do how do I use this getting uncomfortable idea yeah so so a couple different things that that we've done which is having people from different departments which for a day or two days or a week and see what they discover inside what new ideas can can they bring in it's for leaders who recognize that when they have a meeting maybe someone doesn't talk up there very introverted so you have to create space for that person's idea to emerge yes sometimes shutting up is a really great thing to do because it allows you to hear better in I know my my friend Neal Stephenson who ran idea here the design firm for a while he's designed all these interactions that he gives many of his clients like when you get in and Burr have an uncomfortable conversation with a guy who's driving or when you get to the airport go into the magazine store and pick out a magazine you would never read you know all these different crops that just allow you to get a little outside of your comfort zone but that doesn't help me with my employees that just trains my brain to be more open to new ideas that you're so that yeah that that that's what you want to do because you want your everyone wants their employees to bring them great ideas but it's not enough to sort of say I have an open office door to your great idea a good leader finds props and and training and coaching for their people so that they can tease out their best ideas I give you a quick example second city Mick Napier famous director here in town has a thing called taboo day he knows that even the great you know talent at second city sometimes sensors themselves so he says are you need to bring an idea that second city would never allowed to be on the stage. it is too offensive it's too expensive it's too crazy and lo and behold everyone is you know they're they're suddenly the shackles are off. four out of six of those ideas are gonna end up on stage really yes because they are interesting and they're different and they there is a way to get this this really creative thinking and make it work so it can be turned into content. seems to me like when I hear stuff like this a lot of the employees are going good idea but I don't care if I tell the boss what I really think or what I think's going wrong or my new idea which is counter to the current thinking they'll be defensive about it sure all have hell to pay yeah I mean you got to also know where you sit and over your company sets any admin center some we had on the podcast a long while ago she's the person who defined this term psychological safety which is necessary for groups to do great work Google did this big study was called project Aristotle what was the number one thing that innovative teams needed psychological safety so it's it's legendary and is out there look I'm finding in my experience we work with you know we do something like seven hundred dates a year with fortune one thousand companies. you're not calling second city because you wanna play it safe so there's at least seven hundred companies out there and many of them are are you know who they are the Nike is the Netflix the googles of the world who do you understand the power of unleashing an individual's mind in the power of teams and then the companies who don't you know you have to make a decision for yourself you want to work in a space from a second city and WGN radio is getting DSM podcaster Kelly Leonard is in our studio we're talking about a series of podcasts he's recently done if there was a thing to them you could say the power of getting uncomfortable so then is it really that like I'll get my employees in the room and I'm going to find a prompt to make us uncomfortable is that well that's what we do right so you would companies will hire second city to come in and leave their employees through a variety of exercises many which seem like totally benign but they are designed to do just that to get you sort of thinking a bit differently and then we progressed the workshop over the of their often like three hours long where then they can start you know sharing their ideas and their scenarios and things that happen in their business yeah it's not enough just to say I'm comfortable it with many things MM I think we've talked about this before it's a practice yeah you never go to second city and think that we didn't rehearse you never go to you know white text Parker Wrigley Field and think that they didn't like stretch yet we all walk in our businesses and you know lots of money is at stake and how many people actually practicing the thing that they do how lucky for the employees the the the employers engage in this yeah because I guess this is a top down idea yeah well top down and bottom up right that's what it needs to be I think people have discovered that.

And they have taken the attitude since they bought Merrill, Lynch in the aftermath of the two thousand eight credit crisis. There's no real market value. There's no real brand benefit to carrying on with the name of Merrill, Lynch and most of its business division. So they're going to be phasing out the name of Merrill, Lynch.

"Mark. Yeah. I don't get it. I just remembered because hearing you talk about it that way. I know what started the conversation. We were talking about the Tom Cruise most motion smoothing committing petty put out for that for mission impossible. No, he came in the director of top gun. I think they were talking about mission impossible. You think they were they did a whole PSA video and released on the internet about how to turn off motion smoothing and your TV, and I was like think is awesome. I'm glad they actually put out this video. I can't fucking stand. Can't stand it either that whenever I go over to someone's house to watch a movie, and they have it on. I'd go. Oh, you guys like this. Like what it's like, you don't notice how Larry smooth. And it's like this weird takes me out of the movie. So who likes it then a bunch of people who like it and tell the turn it off. I'll use it for specific things. I play red dead with it slightly on because slightly on because I'm too close to my TV sometimes where it's like. The the periphery will be really juddering and be like oh. And if I just put it on like three out of ten because it's like a level for it really is a it doesn't it's not distracting to me. It's interesting. And I haven't had a lever for other stuff. I tend off it's like on never put it on a film fixed. It always reminds me of when someone records a movie on their phone or on a video camera. Uploads it like it doesn't look like it almost looks at the call. He's worse that smoothing feature. And I don't like, I know it's probably incorrect and thinking then you watch like sixty f- PS videos that people put up. Yeah. Yeah. Can you watch? I definitely plays. Let's place where sixty F B S if it's from PC man that usually it's video games though. Most most the footage video games, right? Like, what are you shoot? Between the games in. I shoot sixty four K on my phone. Yeah. Sixty video. A sixty f- PS video. I don't mind it. But I definitely notice it when I see it like everything just seems like super super smooth. And it's not necessarily the way I feel about when I see something it's like four K or when high def came out. It was like, oh, that's fucking amazing. That now we have these high def graphics like that. That's incredible. I don't have that same feeling when I see sixty F Bs or like forty eight frames for the hobbit. You know, I wasn't like oh this amazing waiting for this. You know, that was not my reaction. I used to always get us wide Slama guys. But is one sixty f- PS. But it's business division is like mushoo a thousand frames a second that by sixty get a cut up its way foster than if divided by twenty four twenty five. Yeah. I finally saw speaking of like frame rate and stuff like that. I saw spider man finally into this metaverse. Yeah. I still haven't seen. I really want this.

"It's just that's the way it goes. If you're if you're in the NFC south, you must calculate. Well, this is the way the falcons do it. And you've seen the best example's probably the NFC north with all the big QB's and everything and the oil we have Aaron Rodgers in our division air. Go. Those the bears. Did the bears are all about we got to figure out how to disrupt Aaron Rodgers zig when they zag the paper. It's never for once in fifteen years at the thing. How are we going to get through this division before we start figuring anything the NFC south comparison works out perfectly because Julio Jones's business division forever? It's all right. So we're going to draft a cornerback. How do we deal with Julio Jones and these are decisions that other teams are making? Meanwhile, the jets and the dolphins and the bills are like how do we win football game? Like, that's that's literally there at step one. And they've been at step air all bad decade. They've all been bad teams for mostly for. I mean, listen, all right fine. The dolphins with gas in his first year when the playoffs the Sanchis jets went to to title game so on and so forth, but you get the larger picture, and and don't be wise with me bills fans about your playoff run last year. That was so many playoff run that playoff Rome was bad. It wasn't good. They didn't have the quarterback. They wanted. They got their guy now. Congratulations. But of course, you're going to win games because I can say this is a pedigree snob when you're always dry. In the top ten. You have enough talent to win some games. You're gonna win a handful of games over the course of a season. Anyhow the patriots. You say the Texans. Are they don't want the Texans? I don't think they want the Texans. They almost like team zero history. They talk about pressure that team should be that franchise Bill O'Brien. And so on you know, and by the way, I know this Shawn Watson company went up there and beat them in. What was that week to week four whatever that was in two thousand seventeen and bad call on Philip door set? Touchdown whatever that was. They had them beat blues. Brandin cooks Brandin cooks. You're right in the patriots summarily dumped, wait a minute. You mean to tell me there was a big play by the New England Patriots and Philip door set wasn't involved. I find that hard to believe. But okay. Yeah, you're right. It was Brandin cooks either way. Yes. And they can rush the passer, but they have to be Bill. Bella check OBI Bill O'Brien. I gotta believe that. That's the that's the way that would go down. But they are built to rush the passer. You just mean? I mean, I do not would not need to whatever, I don't know, my my shoe collection. I don't know. I bet my shoe collection on it. I can tell you a certainty. I'll still have my shoes after the patriots defeat the Texans. Just just I loved the Shawn Watson to I love watching him. If you copquin, but they'll beat them. If you wore fourteen Dave I the bed one hundred percent. But I was just don't have the space. I'm with you. I love the hot take that you and spaghetti the unions. Forget him. So that was was that a humble brag does that count as a humble what he just said that I wear a size fourteen. I think that's well, it's just a big issue. I'm only at thirteen loo look at work in his own home. We're on team anti patriots right now. I was because it it made sense.
