"Yvo Twenty twenty has been canceled due to various sexual abuse allegations. Yvo Is the biggest annual fighting game tournament in the world, and even with the covid nineteen issues plaguing everyone on the planet. The tournament was soldiering on with plans to make it fully online. Earlier this week, however that all fell apart, and in order to learn more about it, I called on Imran Khan to explain everything Imron. Come into the gaming ride home show again for having me Yvo was canceled. And I just want you to give me the full story. What happened? Why was it canceled? Everything start from the beginning, so ego is the biggest fighting tournament in America Kinda the biggest in the world. There's like some discussion about that at this point, but ego is basically where fighting games have been aspiring to for the last twenty thirty years and listening started in the ninety S. This year, obviously because of covid kit have their usual Mandalay Bay Las Vegas big gathering of fighting game players. So this year they ended up canceling I place. Eve Online Eve online was a different thing where the. Mainly, got games together with like Netco like mortal Kombat eleven and them fighting her indie game that was originally based on my little pony, but basically it was A. It has to evolve brand that could stay around despite not being the big mass gathering tournament that they expect over the last couple of weeks. There's been a bigger. industry-wide movement to out sexual predators in gaming and the gaming industry, and some companies have been hit harder than that are with that bubis off for example, but for the most part it's. It's not a huge thing within the FTC. Because the FTC's always kind of had a reputation of like. Being a bit more open with their sexual harassment and it's always like. It's never been to a level of. A mass critical mass. Joey quilter this past week yesterday in for yesterday in fact was outed by a player. Named He's just does mikey. He goes online and is after the tag is crack. Peron but George Taylor. Who is the head of the current? President Vivo who founded it with Tommy Tony Kanaan. was outed for experiences when he was. Close, to twenty, where they were southern golf land, which is an amusement park in l. a.. That mikey accused him of basically. Paying money to young kids to take their shirts. Germany polls mikey related experience where he said quarter. Paid him twenty dollars to see his genitals inside a restroom and bought him pornography so. It's IT'S A. It's a larger thing that when you look at it from the perspective of not a child who just thinks they're having fun. It's real creepy, but what is conditions came out. Other people's Front, also coming out of the woodwork, saying like more finding old chaser people were talking about doing these things, but not naming names, and now that it's out. The floodgates are broken out. Yvonne immediately went. No, WE'RE GONNA put on administrative leave and check this out, so I mentioned Tom. Tony Kennedy before their more famous like they are obviously co-founders of ego, but there are more famous right now for being developers of Product L. at riot games so. They had to step in for this and go okay. We're looking at this right now. We're investigating and seeing what happens. It did not take very long before nether realm. I believe the first one like say. Are Involved with ego involvement in that sense means we don't WanNA game there. We're not going to earn any money towards prize pools. We're not doing any advertising which is fairly big deal. Arguably moral combat was like the lead game for that tournament. Right for the online tournament. Yes, Merle come at usually has a hard time with like the in person tournament. Fighting community hasn't really take to that game too well, but as an online net code game like for example, smash brothers was canceled for Eve online because the net code. Isn't that good, so this is more time to shine. The actual like really arguably was streetfighter as it is every year. This year. Are Not meeting her, but a little bit. After another canceled COP CANCELED IN ONCE CAPCOM cancels gets away from ego. Then that's that's the ballgame lets. Everything goes away soon after main sex developers of them biting heard who this is their big chance to become A. Kind of a household name and if I didn't need community, they cancelled. Bay Namco canceled and ran into that ego are the canons came out with a message from as ego saying? Hey, we were cutting for joy color. He is not president anymore. In the future, he will have zero involvement with the organization this not he's going to not be on. He's going to be on the board, or he'll be the FCC or he'll still kind of tournaments. They're cutting it off completely. Shortly after that they also that announced, we can't under these circumstances and this change in organization also do evil online in a couple of weeks in August. A month or in August? I. Know that screws over a lot of people, but. It seems like honestly the best. Call right now of. You'RE GONNA have to go through with work. That joy has done or you're going to have to. Try It's from scratch. Cobble together in event that takes at least a year to actually set up and try to get together in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I mean they just they basically. Got Rid of the boss in the most public way, possible right I mean it's it's you can't just like recover from that in a matter of weeks. Really Yeah, it's. It is one of those things of a lot of this is. Probably high time for the funding community insert reckoning with a lot of these things, because it's an issue for a number of years, it was I. I don't know if you recall but a about eight years ago, there was a street fight across capcom across Tekken. Show online, and it ended up ending as a result of some sexual harassment claims, and those a big divide in the community about like whether sexual harassment was a just a part of the culture or not and. Stuff like this doesn't help that argument. No I mean I like you, said earlier I mean like. Feels like the right call to elevate it, and as disappointing as it is for Yvo to be cancelled like it's a big flag for like we need to address. This is if we're going to cancel this event because we need to look at ourselves internally and I think I. Mean Hope the hope is that they come out better on the other side. I mean it seems like this is one of those things where. I. Hesitate to say Covid kind of save them but. If. This were an actual in person things still at Mandalay Bay then they wouldn't be able to cancer that quickly an online tournament. Shuttered a lot more easily. The bigger question now is what happens next year.

"co founder" Discussed on Venture Stories
"Just you probably just get rid of the people. Just have your best people. They're not managing anybody. The. Other thing I'd say is that you know when you're in the earliest agents like the cost of somebody being bad is super high. Totally Kill Your company. When you're later stage, the cost of somebody being bad is pretty low, if somebody in a role, whatever if they're low performers, who cares? But if one third of your team is a low performer, that's just not going to work right like that just means you're team is low performing so yeah I just be extremely picky you probably the whatever urgency you're feeling around hiring. It's not worth sacrificing for even a B. Plus player in the early days. And that number that like you know grading regimen, whatever it's totally like finger to the air fuzzy, but for the role. You're hiring you WANNA hire somebody who's the best in the world at that role. I will continue my my ran for just one last point which is. Just because somebody says you need to hire, the best person in the world for the role doesn't mean that you need to hire the best person in the world in their discipline, so if you need to hire for example the best. React if you're building a react APP you WanNa hire the best react engineer in the world. That doesn't mean you WanNa hire the guy that works or Gal that works on the react Colonel Ray. Because that person probably doesn't solving problems that you have you wanna find somebody who's the best in the world at the sort of domain that you actually care about you like you necessarily want to hire somebody who is tremendous at writing algorithms. If what you need to do is build, Web APPs. Like their competence in this deep technical domain doesn't help your startup. It might help your ego, but it doesn't help your star and what you really want is somebody who's going to help your start up. How you think about compensation, it was sort of philosophy. Behind. So I thought a ton about this. The way that basically look at it as pre seed. It's basically whatever you can negotiate that person's basic before before you raise any money based prison, basically a co-founder whether you give them. The CO founder title is your decision. Not Mind whatever you negotiate, anything goes. There's no rationality here. Once you've raised some money well. Look at his, you know. If you want a really strong team. You pretty much just straight up. Tell people that they can't be in it for cash like as a seed stage startup if someone comes in, and they're like yeah I need one fifty to start. It's there's just like no way dude..
How Much Equity Should You Give To Your Partners?
"To another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil, Patel and today we're gonNA. Talk about how much equity you should give to your partners and I. Think Neil this maybe a good way for us to start this off after we kind of talk about a little bit is to share stories. Yeah, so equity guys just to recap. What percent of the company should you be giving to potential partners and I think the high level answer to that would be depends, but I think it'd be helpful for you guys to get an idea of how Neil I have thought about this historically and how we've done things, so neil you WANNA start. Yes so I'm a big believer and basing on value if you think someone is. Doing a lot of work, carrying majority of the way, or they should get majority of a are doing very little work. She get much lower of equity if they're doing half the work and pulling hathaway fighting half value than give them fifty percent, the reason I would vary it a law and don't always look at it as you deserve the majority or you deserve, the least amount is if someone else is doing the majority of the working. They're carrying the company and you do very little, but you own a big chunk or more than half eventually they're not going to be. Happiness can create friction. And then eventually the business can end up going to zero or does not work out on the flip side. If you own majority an were, you can also think about the opposite way as well right so in essence well I've learned and I've done so many different business partnerships says it has to be equal based on the value and effort that each partner is providing, and that could be one partners, providing more money or do. Do More work or they're bringing more deals are revenue. However, you want to slice dice. Yeah, and one way I think people might be thinking. Hey, like what if I want this to be an exact science? I think it's tough to make an exact science, but if you want to do it, there actually is a way to make it a lot more mathematical. There's a website I, think it's called slicing pie so slicing it. Slicing Piedras actually a book on do and basically you actually have to record how many hours you're putting in for the year and I think at the end of the year it calculates equity you got now. That is much more mathematic, but to Neal's point. Let's say somebody joins a company and they want equi now I think it's good to entertain the conversation, but really it's basically a negotiation. You're having so okay. You want equity in the company. How much do you want? Okay? You want twenty percent. Okay? Why do you want twenty percent? Okay, how? How much work have you put in so far? How much money are you going to put in now? If it's really zero zero, starting out I'm just joining because I'm talented. That's hard to compute because if the companies are doing well, you've been doing it for five years. You put in the sweat equity and you put in the money already and this person just come in and say I want this. I think they're probably being unreasonable, but if they're being reasonable, then continued negotiation. I think you've gotTA. Make all parties. Happy on that front, so I. I think with partnerships in the past. We can just talk about our partnership here. Neil like fifty fifty right down the line, so that's true so in general. What do you do with all your partnerships? Because you have multiple partnerships, some are less than fifty fifty summer more than fifty fifty. How do view it? Yeah, so let's look at the software side of things so originally it was two co founders that this is for click flow so I starting out with sixty percent, and a he started out with forty percent of the company and the reason. Reason for that was because I was using my social capital, so I was getting people to put in money for the company secondly Ozzy Mike Capital as well third was using my social capital to get US customers at the same time, and so he thought that was more valuable, and he also wanted me to handle the recruiting financing division all that kind of stuff, and he was going to handle strictly to technical side of things, so that's how we split it that way and we agreed, and it was fair to really know fights on that front. Have you ever had business partnerships, not out and people are fighting and arguing yeah. I mean Oh single rain. Were you were a partner before two? Yeah years ago. Why didn't it work? Single Green didn't work out I guess or the Partnership Workout Right? There's many reasons why the company didn't work out, but why the partnerships not work out partial didn't work. This is my opinion. I think the level of work was not distributed. Some of the people that had equity were no longer putting in the work, and so that actually caused issues friction, because it was like I'm putting in this world and this person just kind of sitting on the size I. think there. There is kind of that going on, but at the same time the company wasn't doing that while anymore. Period because of all the algorithm updates that google was making so cash was coming in, so that led them more stress and people were just like. Forget it at this point is like the company's not really worth anything that was where I think it landed, and then there were five partners as myself a zoo and there were three other people, and that's what happened. Look, at the end of the day business partnerships are GonNa go to ups and downs, oil and a finding out is equity mainly becomes a problem when you're making money when you're not making money, no one really cares for some reason. Even when partners are all happy when money starts rolling in dozen people get greedy and picky and have issues, and that's why it's not structured fairly at the beginning, it creates issues wants money is trying to be made.
Netflix to Invest $100 Million in Black Community's Financial Institutions
"Joined today by Bloomberg Entertainment reporter Lucas Shaw and Lucas Netflix is pledging $100 million to help black communities in the United States. Where is this money going to go? Do we know It's going to go to financial institutions that in some way lent money to or support black communities. A lot of institutions will be black owned or Or black lead, you know, One of the 1st 1 is Hope Credit union whose CEO Blackman and Bill Bynum, another $25 million is going to the Black Economic Development Initiative, which is a new fund that's gonna invest in black of financial institutions. But the big goal here is to try to take out of some of their cash and give it to institutions that can help facilitate investment in black communities and that the initiative was inspired. In large part by theory of research on the racial wealth gap on how much less capital a lot of black Americans have access to than the average white Americans. For example, besides the benefit of the direct access to money that these communities will now have What does it say that a big companies like Netflix is doing something like this? You know it send the real signal to a lot of the other big companies in the U. S. And around the world. This is the second pretty significant action that that Netflix our CEO Reed Hastings has taken Reid Hastings. Donated $120 million of his own fortune, historically black colleges and universities and I think that was really hoping that this particular commitment will inspire other companies to do the same because Netflix compared to some of the other big tech company has a relatively small amount. Of cash on hand. It's got about $5 million right now. That sounds really big. But then when you think about the fact that companies like Apple have hundreds of billions of dollars in cash, and they're bound sheet if they committed Tio investing some of that money or shifting some of that money Into some of these other financial institutions. That could really be a huge benefit the black communities across the US well, and then that makes me wonder how much weight does Reed Hastings carry in the tech community? I mean, the fact that he's done this Is this likely to inspire others? He carries a lot of weight. I have to say, you know, he is somebody who is very well respected by his peers. He was one of the co founders of Netflix. Prior to that, he found it a couple of other tech companies. He used to sit on the boards of both Facebook and like a softy with the biggest tech companies in the world, and he is really somebody So I think it's seen as one of the leaders in that community that being said he is a little bit of a lone wolf. He kind of he does keep to himself to a certain extent. On doesn't put himself out there in the same way that that may be a mark Tucker Berg does he sit. He has very specific causes that he focuses on me spent a lot of his adult life. Investing money and education, which is why his personal investment in the HBC use without a shock. But you've seen him come out pretty strongly following the death of George Floyd and kind of position Netflix as as a leader trying to invest in black communities, and if if that's going to be a place that he puts his time on energy and money, I think he'll probably push a lot of his peers to do the same. Lucas. Not a lot of time left. But is he doing any work at home if you will, because Netflix doesn't have any black executives. Yeah, it's the 3rd 92 at Netflix really does have to improve its own diversity, especially senior leadership position. None of it really is a black. It has one black board member. But that is something that executives the company acknowledge. Must be worked on in the years ahead. Lucas.

She was a field producer eyewitness news in New York City. She left her job and she decided to be become an agent for creative artists, so she had one in the house, and that was me I was a hairstyle, and she didn't have much luck with her other creative artists, but ironically she had.

THERE IS A SOLUTION
"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard. And I'm an alcoholic sober since January nineteen eighty eight one day at a time. In this the Thirty Eighth Episode Chapter Two there is a solution from the second edition of alcoholics anonymous originally published in nineteen fifty, five. There were only a handful of edits to this chapter from the first edition, but one of them is most significant as it referred to a celebrated physician who treated the American businessman Roland H. The second edition named that Docker as the world famous psychoanalyst Dr Carl Young. WHO PRESCRIBED FOR ROLAND? In Zurich, in the Early Nineteen Thirties? As recounted on page twenty, six of the second edition Dr Young told Roland H that his alcoholism was incurable by psychoanalysis, and that the only thing that might help was a spiritual experience. That suggestion along with membership in the Oxford Group lifted rowlands compulsion to drink, and later helped him bring abby t to sobriety. EBI INTERN HELP SOBER UP. Bill Wilson Co founder of a in a nineteen sixty one letter of gratitude to Dr Young Bill acknowledged that Rowland's conversation with Dr Young was the first link in the chain of events that led to the founding of alcoholics anonymous. And Now? From the second edition of the book chapter, Two, there is a solution. We of alcoholics anonymous, no thousands of men and women who were once just as hopeless as bill. Nearly all have recovered. They have solved the drink problem. We are average Americans. All sections of this country and many of its occupations are represented as well as many political, economic, social and religious backgrounds. We are. Who Normally would not mix? But there exists among us a fellowship, a friendliness and an understanding, which is indescribably wonderful. We are like the passengers of a great line. Her the moment after rescued from shipwreck, when Camaraderie Joyous nece and democracy pervade the vessel from steerage to captain's table, unlike the feelings of the ship's passengers, however, our joy in escape from disaster does not subside as we go our individual ways. But feeling of having shared in a common peril is one element in the powerful cement which binds us. But that in itself would never have held us together as we are now joined. The tremendous fact for every one of us is that we discovered a common solution. We have a way out on which we can absolutely agree, and upon which we can join in brotherly and harmonious action. This is the great news. This book carries to those who suffer alcoholism. And illness of this sort, and we have come to believe it. An illness involves those about us in a way, no other human sickness can. If a person has cancer. All are sorry for him, and no one is angry or hurt. But not so with the alcoholic illness for with it there goes annihilation of all the things worthwhile in life it engulfs all whose lives touched the sufferers. It brings misunderstanding fierce resentment, financial insecurity, disgusted friends and employers warped lives a blameless children, sad wives and parents. Anyone can increase the list. We hope this volume will inform and comfort those who are or who may be affected. They are many. Highly. Competent psychiatrists who have dealt with US found it sometimes impossible to persuade an alcoholic to discuss his situation without reserve, strangely enough wives, parents and intimate friends usually find us even more unapproachable, then do the psychiatrist and the doctor, but the X. problem drinker who has found the solution who is properly armed with facts about himself can generally win the entire competence of another alcoholic in a few hours. Until such an understanding is reached, little or nothing can be accomplished. Until such an understanding is reached, little or nothing can be accomplished. That, the man who is making the approach has had the same difficulty that he obviously knows what he is talking about that. His whole deportment shouts at the new prospect that he is a man with a real answer that he has no attitude of holier than thou nothing, whatever except the sincere desire to be helpful, there are no fees to pay no axes to grind no people to please no lectures to be endured. These are the conditions. We found most effective. After such an approach many take up their beds and walk again.

So Palo. We're GONNA start at the beginning. I'm telling me where you spent your childhood. So I grew up in the Bronx. In New, York City and every summer for three four months depending on. How my mom felt I would go to the Dominican Republic and lived there. She thought it was really important to make sure that I. Slit my difference Salah I knew my heritage, but also you know experienced the American way of life. And did you stay with family members in the Dominican Republic? Yeah, before everything happened like with my grandmother. Passing away my grandfather fascinating way, we would just stay our family home in the what we call is uncomfortable, and it just means the well. It means camp literally translated, but it just means like the countryside that's where I kind of like learned how to appreciate food, and how to grow my own veg and herbs and appreciate like fresh fruits. You see a lot of that in my desserts. Now I'm so sorry lost your grandparents winter. They pass away. I was young. I was fairly young. You know maybe ten all the so hard. Yeah, it was it was difficult. You know, but my grandmother really with the time that we did have she. impacted my life. Changed. Everything that I thought about you know where before I might have not appreciated food, because when you think about American culture, you think about fast. She kinda like helped me like slow down at a very young age, and really look and see in what the earth against us, and how the world nourishes us from a very very young age I understood the complexities of food, and how we hold our heritage through it. Can you tell us some of the things that she both cooked and grew, she would cook a big meal which consists of rice beans, chickens that we would grow not grow. Her is very traumatic first because they were my pets and then I realized very quickly. The food system was like Oh. You know she would make this huge meal and she would invite everybody in the neighborhood. Everyone that was able to come. If you it didn't matter if you're rich poor, it didn't matter if you're young or old, and we all kind of sit in the front yard in the backyard and eat from my grandmother's food and she had that meal in Cup of Coffee Ready. Ready in the middle of the day for everybody always matter what was going on and our lives. She had that ready, and that's something that we as a family now when we go to the Dominican Republic, we continue as a tradition, so everybody knows our family to be hosts, so it's very fitting that now I work in the hospitality industry. Did Your Grandmother Specialty. Yes, so she would make coconut rice with peace so much Guan Lula cocoa and it was cooked in the woodfire. We had like a house that was open open air that they had bricks that you put your woodfire in, and that's how she would cook. Everything was cooked, by Soviet, Elena, which means over fire while all of my experience in the Dominican Republic I didn't know what stove was in the Dominican Republic. My my brain never made that connection that you could have. A gas stove. 'cause we always use what fire so. How about some of the things that that she would grow you mentioned fruits. You mentioned herbs. What were some of the things in her garden? Her. Garden consisted of this plot of land in front of our house, and behind our house, and we call it in cal-, and cal means the Cacao trees, and it was just rows and rows and rows, and rows of of wild ca cal that would naturally in our backyard laced in between were mango trees, tamarind avocado plantations right next to our house in our well of rain water was guava and passion fruit, which I always like to say whatever fruits like. Like to grow together will always taste good together. We had herbs in the back in the shaded area. Where is anything that you can think of shot? They CILANTRO or no Kulan. Throw and more we had for me. We had lemongrass growing by the side of the House and I would drink that tea, and it would be a natural mosquito repellent so pretty nice, you know. Oh, my Gosh! I'm starting to get the impression that it's no surprise. You became a chef. I I think so? I mean it was a good fit i. feel like I was the only one in my family. That kind of took that same sentiment of food, and being connected with nature like that like my grandmother did and turned it into a way to give back to the community, so I've always been using food. As a way to connect with other people because I'm very shy I don't make like a great first impression is very awkward at first I'm like. Oh, I'm sorry you had to go through that with me. You know, but with food I can show you who I am without.

And what was your introduction to that? So could you share a little about that? Yeah so I was developing technology myself for.

That's really in the. audio voice world, and just I think they applications will be an are very very beneficial, more user friendly and can also help us well. We're really moving around. Perfect and so I think that's a nice segue into what you guys are doing with with your company, pragmatic voice in the healthcare space so. Maybe you can talk a about the origin of some of the things that you are working on the ideas, and how you saw the opportunity to get involved in, and then go to describe a little bit of what you are doing. Yes so. Since I. Have the healthcare background naturally? Considering how voice can be applied just just when you see the problems and you look at the solutions and and how? At the health care space really it's about human connection generally especially wins on the patient doctor, side and then even just with the staff that the fact that there's so many moving parts there. Most people in healthcare are just not sitting behind a computer and. Re when of the things that became particularly interesting to me was just looking at those times where people would have to stop. Try to find a computer when in reality and healthcare. Everyone's moving very very fast. And I also was. Really going through a lot with supporting some companies that were developing Emr's and or HR's back in two thousand ten twenty eleven and twelve and the government in the United States was providing incentive packages in watching the frustration with tech for the healthcare practitioners in general in seeing that they didn't have a human connection

"Take your personal experience in in arbitrage of personal experience. Okay go ahead Eric. If you wrote this today besides the every quicker would it be meaningfully? Different not really. I think I think some of the things have been sped up. Because you know you you. Can Incorporate online stripe is there? No Code is there. I'd probably advised not and and online services much more right because you can get pretty far that I might also say that you know and this is the third model. At which is you might serve the community. So there's idea there's executioners community right so you know nowadays on I've got a following on my twitter removes or what have you and the interaction of them is sort of like you know person community Fit Right. And then that community you can withdraw. A protocol can withdraw a product and so forth. And that's something. I was just less thinking about back in twenty thirteen today but that might be third angle on things you know to take a community. I approach and how about the Kobe requests for startups or anti replacement startups. This shea. Talking about I. What is this graph? This is the Telegraph of thousand days in the life of Thanksgiving Turkey. Life improves improves improves. And then a ridiculous sudden reversal. Okay and we're seeing Thanksgiving Day charts across the economy and where the rubber is orange. Okay and look at that ridiculous Thanksgiving giving day drop and breach by the way has risen dramatically right so uber is now essentially just breeds their second. Business has become their first. That's literally their business. Okay now the thing about this is a reversal business. Plan for you know like fortunately for over it. At least the corporation they can. Disengage drivers when demand plummets. Like those but But that's like a you know ridiculous. Drop right like seventy percent drop revenue. However here's the thing. Notice how we dropped but not breeds one of things. I was short on Uber. Benatti reads is pretty good. It's pretty specific prediction in terms of what to be long insured on. And frankly you know. I never talk about trades online because that's investing Advice River Bellizzi. That if you had reallocated full you listen to me around the time you would have done pretty well right so like for example. X Rays drones antivirals. Cat Scans Autonomy Diagnostics. Facemasks remote were Tele presence bioinformatics at that holds up. One of those were in drones. Me Put an asterisk on simply because there's such supply chain disruption demand me there have been not not the supply we'll have to see. You can make VR headsets in the US but everything else is clearly going especially like Mike. Remote workshops zoom and stuff and then on the short side of things. I think that holds up pretty well as well traveled tender grinder hotels AIRBNB airlines in person. You know blue cities come back it up. Real estate is crashing commercial real estate and blue cities restaurants conferences digital nomads. In the sense of moving around the world. You can't do that anymore. Remember Berates so I think that holds a pretty darn well right and I think that's like let's call it a part of the comp investing thesis if you remember this concept of the digital divide this is the thing in the late Ninety S O. Some people have access to Internet others. Don't right so April seventh. This concept which I think is one mental model. The fiscal divide bright digital is now cheap with billions of smartphones around the world. It's a physical. That's expensive case for last two years. We've made the cost of putting a bunch of transistors on a chip that that's now cheap but putting a bunch of people in rooms now expensive okay so the measure of a competent society is one that can actually hold a rally if you can do that you are. You're confident in the people. There are confident of the steam and the diagnostics. And so on that you know you can have this huge crowd that it's being tested to them into their life and they all come and congregate there right. I from incompetence state and for citizenry. That is not cooperatives. The Commons are attracting. And you can't basically there's a field state in between your house in the next person's House. You have to wear masks you you know you basically house a like like a place where you can't show your face you know. Maybe it's pollution meets infection. It's not the comments aren't actually traversable. So I think this is a powerful mental model for the next several years at least that physical is expensive and one thing that means by the way is digital now cheap physicals now expensive so everybody is GonNa want offer substitute for things because you know Sadler tweet. By the way that I was really surprised. People wild doubt about the I one more question for you which is a CO founders. Are we sort of in the picking co-founder similar to sort of dating before that you're limited to the people that you went to college with or worked with or is that for Co founder? Is that actually good? She's should you stick to that pool. How do you think what's your framework for picking the Right Co founder? Yeah know so so like the way I kind of think about this is having and being like an investor and having seen like lots of these things and whatnot so you should pick somebody who who's is complementary to you okay and there should always be clear. Ceo that's like the most important component the thing about that is like the question of WHO's the CEO. That's like one of the very first conversations you need to have and ideally. It's something where that's obvious between between you but if it's not a for example at the beginning of joint base itself public knowledge but you know Brian and the Guy who helped found blocking didn't so they had a screaming. Send you know what they were outright and basically blocks company and Mrs Good Company. That type of stuff shouldn't be resolved. There's also an ideological dispute watching to be able to have a wallet where they couldn't have the password password reset four the road actually very substantive. It's two different visions of the future. Both of which trinite illegitimate visions of Crypto? Right true product. Difference on on simple thing pastor reset so so that's that's like a good example of a few things. I who's the leader Second Woods A LONG-TERM IDEOLOGICAL VISION THIRD OUR SKILLS COMPLIMENTARY? I do not do these. Co-founder dating sites or whatever. Kids these days you know like I don't know I don't know if that works. I feel some could work but it feels inorganic. Maybe you know I think the best thing to do is to actually work on a project with that person and find that there's an actual division of labor nothing substitutes for that because working with somebody is just very very different from talking to them on. It's like they have to cash the past when you throw it into it. What you meant not necessarily what you said. Lots and lots of little things like that have to tolerate your using 'cause nobody's ever heard strong and every dimension or some people are few and so I think actually doing and shipping project. Ideally one involves money and customer support with them like is is probably the best bet naked or something like that but try to push it all the way through such that book that you have legal liability together or or customers yelling you. That's real trial by fire. Balji thank you so much for coming on give a digital rotten for her volatility. If you're an early stage entrepreneur we'd love to hear from you check us out.

"co founder" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Kibble dot com like the dog food no similarity similarity there And of course we got to that point it was tough and in fact we had this list of ten finalists and they were weird. Names was like take two was replay. One was cinema center and then there was Netflix and quite frankly a lot a lot of people didn't like it because back in the late nineties The euphemism for a pornographic film was a skin flick so oh skin flicks. And then of course there was that big x at the end of net flicks. But you know desperation does strange things. And so that ended up being the best of a lot of choices and so even though it sounded a little corny net flicks. It was here mark step by for just a second because I want to just let it a caller here. Susanna is calling from Cape Elizabeth Maine. Susannah you're on ear. Hi there I just was calling comment that In nineteen ninety eight my. I'm sorry ninety. Nine my husband and the group from the bay area New Mexico onto the Navajo Indian reservation and where we live which was right in the reservation. There was a little eighteen video store but this election was dismal. It was basically really ancient movie either B. Movies and my husband had heard about that flicks and I feel like we're one of your first subscribers and I just wanted to say that it was a life changing for us for the three years. You're on the reservation. We'll thank you Susannah and thanks for your some small way helping. Put My kids through school so we both got something out of this relationship Susannah. Thank you for your call. Okay so back. Act To this big the big idea you had about putting people on subscription like Like Susanna they're a pretty quickly got a couple of hundred thousand subscribers But the company was I mean I mark. Forgive me like I'm just going to have to pull you away. From your standpoint of ruthless optimism and down into reality because net flicks clicks was still losing money even as you brought in a lot of subscribers and so talk to me about those Those months in years before the company went a public it was not smooth sailing. No we were as I describe it drowning in our own success and you heard in the commercial you played how she had a articulate. What was this crazy thing? No due dates no late fees subscription and. It was so complicated that the way way to get around that was to give our subscribers their first month free. But when you do that you take all the cost up front and then make it back a little a bit over many months which means when you have runaway success you have runaway expense and so customers were flooding in and on one hand that was going. This is awesome the other hand I was wringing my hands going. Oh my God. We're going to go broke and just to add insult to injury. This came to a head good in the fall of the year. Two thousand which was the very moment that the final bits of air were streaming out of that dot com balloon so so there was no money to be had and we were losing money hand over fist..

It could take your whole life develop clarity second patients patients probably whatever you think you don't have you have something else in his the short story mark welcome to the pod. Oh It's a pleasure to be here. I'm so excited. I'm excited because because you know I have a lot of entrepreneurs founders CEOS on this show and some from a lot of well known companies but I think the moment I I kind of saw your stuff and started reading your stuff and saw that you were a co founder and CEO for a little bit of net flicks. It was obviously Lisa like well. This is another level and it may not feel that way to you van to me it does and the way the reason I liked that is because I really like I really live in the world of kind of these. We started up a Lotta apparel businesses and online marketing and stuff like that but I just feel like the things I can learn from someone who has kicked off something on that level. are probably endless and I'm really excited to try to get as much out of you. That can hear well. I mean that's kind of what I mean. The book in many ways is about that untold story Ori because everyone thinks it started out as one hundred and fifty million subscriber screaming giant but for years we were just a DVD by mail company for years. We could could make it work. Yeah I mean I was telling you earlier. I came into the into the building here and like all of a sudden. I got that vibe like Oh my God. This is start feels like a startup and for many years that's what Netflix felt like and that's the part you love. You love that started up energy yeah you know. I sometimes say that. If you're really lucky you kind of figure out two things about yourself like what you're good at and what you like and if you're really lucky you actually get to do you both those things yeah and I kind of figured out. It's early stage companies and it's not just that I like it. I suck at the companies. Get Big. It's I don't know how people do that. How do you manage like thousand people. Just I totally different game. I'm so happy to hear you say that because like I was telling you before before we started recording. I have always just sort of instinctually avoided letting my business get to corporate. I love that startup feeling and even recently the past few years. I've really tried to make sure that you know I'm covering the right basis. Still the right infrastructure is in place and the right you know talent is where it needs to be but I just. I don't know there's something about it the. I've never felt like I wanted to to try to get it to that place. I've I walked into a lot of these massive clothing companies and it just doesn't look fun anymore so to hear you say that makes me feel really feels like I was right. You were so uh-huh on target in fact I'll give you the advice is don't ever start making things more efficient. That is what kills companies real. Temptations -tations are going to be there. I mean you're going to go. Wow you've had this nice stability. We're growing ninety. percent of my orders are coming in a certain way and you're going to start hiring people who are real experts at efficiency agency because we can help. You cut a few points of margin. We can help you ship a little fee. They're really good at that efficiency stuff but the people who are really good at efficiency Z are clueless when all of a sudden your world changes and your world's going to change everyone's world changes yeah and so what you WanNa do is build this culture in this environment fool of people who are really adaptable who are Jacksonville trades who are comfortable with making decisions based on incomplete incomplete information because then when your world's suddenly shifts those are the people who can then okay and they shift in on it again. Yeah that's funny. Would you say that the main reason we all know the story three of these big corporate companies that can't pivot or make a move. Would you say that's because they're built around efficiency of of what used to work unquestionably and if it's a combination of things six that's what gets him into trouble. Is They go wow this is nice for years and years were doing the same sort of thing growing nice and steadily we have this nice to stage age distribution resell to wholesalers celery and so they hire these sales people who are really good at that and the warehouse there are people who are really good at that and then all of a sudden someone comes along who says screw this multi-stage stuff. I'M GONNA sell straight to consumers so and they can't do it. That's part one is that they can't do it but the the worst part is. They're scared to do it yeah because they go. I can't sell direct because my distributors Poke Hilmi and right. Now distributors are ninety five percent of my business business. So you get stuck me it is. I do a lot of I told you before I did a lot. I do some you know speech a speech sometimes and usually by half half the clients. I'd say or big companies who are scared shitless what's happening and the executive see they see it coming and they're trying to rally the people. You've got to be flexible. We've got to be innovative and so I go in and try and rally the troops whatever you can do in an hour so there's that piece and then the rest of my time I am. I'm working with the early startups helping them take down these big companies so it's this form of job security yeah. That's true either way it goes. That's good good stuff with what's interesting. Though is the best way to learn is to be on both sides. I'm sure yeah I'm sure that's amazing because to me now and you had a history and clothing. We'll talk about that but I I see what's happening with you know macy's and Barney's and all of these retailers that were just staples like you never I thought they would ever go anywhere and people are closed indoors and go and bankrupt and do and it's just like at this point this late in the game because you know we've been talking about retail apocalypse for five for six years. I just sit there and I watch and I'm like how are you not doing anything. How are you not like you know what I mean like. How is your literally. Your ship is sinking and you're not ah you know but that makes perfect sense so deeply set up to act one way that it's so hard to pivot. Here's a classic one so take supermarkets okay I so free really frustrating business for a consumer long lines and all that crap and supermarkets have seen what's going on ECOMMERCE and they're going out. That's that is not a threat. No no way no one can replace selling fresh vegetables and having milk and doing what we do and they just and then someone looked at it and said this is crazy having this checkout. Why can't you just go take stuff off the shelves and walk out and was the innovator who came up with that. Safeway or a Kroger knows was Amazon. I mean the fact that they left that open open for twenty years on them. You know so let me ask you to like I mean I just got right into advice part but if you are one of those guys or you you are even a medium or small sized guy that just has your you know your thing figured out and you have a really good thing going. What do you do like do you have. Do you have a department in the back office. That's constantly only trying to figure out how to disrupt your own business or what. Do you do to avoid that happening so I mean I understand. You know large. Your audience is probably not these big companies but all dispense the big company advice right now. Lease problem is you can't do it. Internally people go I want set up skunkworks and all set up a few people in an office Jason and that might work temporarily but as soon as they try and bring that out into the open the immune system is triggered and the white blood cells come swarming and then every department department in this big company kills the start up the only way to do it is to have it happen separately and so the way you really should do it and this is my opinion is as you basically set up a seed fund big company you invest in las a small startups not so that you can own them in certainly not so you can make money but you have a seat at the table big ten to see what they're working on. You get to understand the future. Eventually you can participate and perhaps them. It's really really really really hard because here's what happens in my world I have you know essentially small business and game example of something that happened. We came up using athletes artists and all that stuff to promote our business all of a sudden this thing started happening that we're social media influencers and so we're like okay well. Let's send him a bunch of clothes and we'll I don't know let's just having where a close on Youtube and so we did that but one thing that happened I will admit out from under me that that I didn't spot was it became so easy to make t shirts and so easy to start a shop store and so easy to start a website that now you have I mean there are some youtubers I doing ten million dollars plus a year in Merch and all of that is my business going somewhere else and that's something I could have spotted and I could have had ten indifferent merch lines or these things or whatever and and I didn't spot it and that's a big one where it where it happened for me. You know what I mean but at least you're watching it and seeing it. You're not gonNA catch everything but you're but that was a pretty fast despise us and I can predict what's going to happen. Next of course is right now. The U you too and INSTA- and face we're going to go. Why is this schmuck making ten million bucks a year emerge on our platform and it's GonNa be taken away from them. What do they do about that though they stopped distributing things like how many likes you have. They stopped letting people know what your followership is. I mean they have it. It's a dance because you don't WanNa driveway the people who are building building your platform but absolutely instagram for example and that's what I'm speaking totally off the cuff here. I don't work in-store Server. you know of this is just not stable environment for a company to keep on saying. This is a great deal. We're we're letting leading the influence your make all the money so then it goes back to obviously they want people to spend money to advertise not get it for free so it'll go back to the companies that are advertising on the platform. We'll we'll get the absolutely right so you know you can wear the shorts on the on the on the youtube if you want but the person who's GonNa make the money is instagram advertising whatever they want on the platform good stuff or so. It looks anyway. It's not so much exactly work because quite frankly as I say in the book. Nobody knows anything and electric. He's going back to the very first thing we said is..
"co founder" Discussed on OFF RCRD
"Anyone anyone to find that talented student in your dorm you want to build something with you can just do that and so. I think looking where you don't need permission and building their first is going to make you far more attractive two mentors in the future great advice. I'd love to talk about the open door story and how you got connected to co-founders. How did you meet. How'd you get connected two or three or four CO founders? He has three other founders so I was rabbe. WHO's now a general partner at Khosla ventures former CEO of square one of the pay tall mafia keith and I met at a square party at Red Door Coffee Celebrating squares? I were at a million dollars in sales in the platform and if you look at what they're doing today it's almost it's pretty funny to think how small they were then maybe thirty forty people and we got into an argument during this party. I newly was from twitter at the time and we third arguing about fraud loss rates and I was just convinced that they were GonNa make the same mistakes. They made a pay pal where the cared too much about fraud in solving the problem at the expense of customer experience. I don't remember the exact position each of us had but at the end of it he tried to hire me to run the risk team which I thought was funny because I knew almost nothing about risks and certainly nothing about Credit Arctic cards. I just had a passion for the customer experience around it because I decided I was totally unqualified. I said no we ended up becoming good friends and arguing about startups for a few more years and a lot of that time was spent talking about real estate why real estate was broken and what could be done about it and through that he had this idea for a long time called home run where you would go to the site you enter your address and you'd say what you're willing to sell your own four and decided to say yes or no and I I didn't think that was a great idea but I thought had the nugget of a really good idea. Took Keith is telling people about this time eventually connected me and Eric are CEO he had started a company that sold Trulia. He had run a fifty to one hundred home portfolio okay since he was eighteen years old founder market sit with sort of off the charts so we really clicked. I respected how he thought about customers really respected how about customer development and the reason reasoning mentioned. Keep trying to hire me for this risk. Job Is Fourth Co founder Ian Wong who ends up taking that job is leading risk at square and we pulled him out of a out of another small start up to start this company together other so I'd like to ask. How did you buy your first home. How did you know there's demand for this product. was there anything that you did early on to kind of assess the demand for open door yeah. You know it's really funny. I don't think we've told the story publicly before. Selling a home is a really important in emotional moment. If you've never done it before we really did not want to mess it up before before we really launched or even raise any money and did anything we'd be created. This fake brand called simpler sell dot com mostly to figure out we actually do this. Could we offer fair market value on someone's home and would it be a great France for them. We we didn't want to cause any kind of trouble. We didn't WanNa make any mistakes. It worked. It worked really well. Our first customer Josh Brewer out in Phoenix took the plunge with us. You know went to a facebook ad clicked on it entered his home address than sold his Holmdale Sembler Sal I think probably ten people in the company at the time and we've all had this bottle of wine. We mixed blended together called a simpler cellar which I'm aging in my basement right. Now it's great and what do you wish you'd started doing more of much earlier. In your life like typically action with compelling tax I I think I massively underweight the importance of listening to other people and the importance of building relationships around disagreements disagreements instead of using them as a way to get to the truth. I think one of the things I did really poorly earlier in my career I've done. I've totally gotten a lot better at is when I had an opinion whether I was right or wrong too soon for the sake of the argument I was right. I viewed my job as taking someone from their position to mind as efficiently as possible that it doesn't work all that does maybe it does work to a certain extent but it's definitely not the best thing to do and much more effective way to do that as to deeply understand where someone is what what led them to their conclusions and then fill in context sort of draw the path from where you are to where they are and then you can both walk on it and that's a much better way to both get to the truth and also you to build much stronger relationship with that person which allows you to get harder questions in the future. Who would you say some of your mentors. Today is still very much. A mentor of Mine America's a mentor of mine. I Still Keep Joe Mentor of mine. I have a lot of internal mentors at the company. I have my spiritual mentor as my executive coach which I highly recommend to anyone anyone who has a a large team is to get an executive coach you find mentorship in so many places. I think twitter's a great way to get that one way mentorship you. Can you know look to the smartest people in the world feeding incite constantly who will often even engage with you if you just reach out to them that's amazing in a recommend biographies in which biographies you know what's funny about recommending books is that the needs to be at the right moment in someone's life for them to really hit books that have been really impactful for me or sometimes books looks set today would mean absolutely nothing or tomorrow might be the most insightful thing. I could possibly be handed so harshly to recommend any kind of book without knowing where someone is today but recently I've really enjoyed Benjamin Franklin biography by Walter Isaacson. I really enjoyed powerbroker Robert Caro. Yeah I could probably name ten ten or twelve others but against that point in time and when did you start with the executive coach and I'd love to dive deeper into that yeah. I started open-door when I was twenty three years old and I had maybe managed eater so people before I found myself within a larger team and a lot of pressure to go very quickly. I think one of my co founders Keith give a talk during wiessee startup school about operating a business and there's the company growth curve in your personal growth curve. I think whatever you can can do to accelerate your personal growth curve as founder in a company is incredibly important worth prioritizing in so I decided in heard before that an executive coach be a great way to accelerate your personal growth curve and that was worth the investment in when did you get that technical which was right at twenty three when he started the company or is it a year or two or three end. Yeah I think I I interviewed probably twenty or thirty coaches before I settled on the mccutcheon work with today. I believe we've been working together now for about two and a half years so probably about two two years in how big was hoping to our at the very beginning of that period tuneup years ago. Yeah I think probably around forty or so people eighty six people got what are some of the the biggest things that you've worked on with this coach and where you've grown with this coach yeah. I think it's a lot of it is interpersonal. Dynamics less so on like strategy I ah most of that mentorship from Mateen here hiring really great people you know what's interesting as you grow the company from one to ten one hundreds of people that you just have these different chapters when my favorite rules is this like the rule of threes every time the company triples everything breaks just like everything that worked really well is complete disarray in a disaster and set you learn learning by trial and error the first ten people everyone in that group of ten people is going to replicate themselves at least ten times if you're successful all of their strengths all their weaknesses houses and so it's critical that every single person that initial group is someone. You're ready to spend twenty four seven with because you're likely going to do that. The next stage is like this a call like the the band of brothers and sisters stage. It's like that first thirty forty people and they really shaped the culture so I think a lot of founders of the states are hiring for culture fit but you really should be looking. I'm for cultural contribution. It's really crucial that you develop an open dialogue with everyone in that group about what's working. What's not working and what the company can do about it? You want every single person that band of brothers other sisters to be like a missionary for the company in the mission. You want part of their identity. The reason get a coach at the next stages because you hit this. It's all changing stage from fifty to one hundred fifty. People were a lot of companies falter because you're growing so fast and everything is absolutely on fire and there's not enough structure yet. You don't really have necessarily you know a leadership leadership team built out and so at the stage earlier employees who previously were generalists who owned a large swath of the company they feel disengaged because it's no longer that band of brothers and sisters. They don't know everyone anymore but you can turn that into empowerment. You can sit them down when I wanted to say. You're a flagbearer for the company. You are flagbearer for over north culture in everyone who is joining today is going to look to you for how to behave and how to contribute and it's on you to teach them what it means to be a member of the team here because if you don't they're going to change it and I I recommend at that point also sort of reaching out to every one of these missionaries in your company gathering their opinions about what the company's values are and using that bottoms up process where everyone contributes needs to write down and establish a set of like what are your company's values and make sure everyone knows you mentioned that executive coaching is something that you do to accelerate your own personal growth curve.

"Their businesses from being, you know, hundred thousand dollar businesses to being hundred million dollar businesses. Plus and to give them the real tactical trae. Meaning that they need to move from the beginning to the next step. I could not agree with you more. And the reason I have the conversation at all here is because I want to talk about solutions and approaches that have been successful in. You clearly have found the way to be successful in spite of and I for me, it's really it is a it is a balancing act in my own mind about whether we go there, we don't I don't want to ignore a problem that exists. But I also don't want to talk about it without having solutions on the table. Yeah. I've been thinking a lot about what are proactive things that can be done to equalize. The opportunities for women, and let's just speak about the world of entrepreneurship because that's the world. I know the most. The terms the legal terms that women are given early on in their business. I think are much worse on average than the legal terms that men are given. So for instance, we've been hearing in the media right now about this entire situation with Uber where Travis has kind of shares that are worth ten x the voting power of a single share. And we know that Travis has this and Mark Zuckerberg has this and many other male founders Evan Spiegel at Snapchat has these shares. I've never heard of a single woman having shares that are worth ten x her voting power. You don't have that. I had to I had to work to actually have a vote on my board. If you look at my first term sheets of rent the runway, my co-founder, and I while we were on the board our votes affectively didn't count. And my preferred shareholders held all of the control and sway as to what the future of the business was so we were starting not even from a, you know. Point zero. We were starting from like negative fifty and over the years. Thank God rent the runway took off from the very beginning. And we've been able to negotiate in every subsequent round of funding more rights for ourselves. But all we've wanted was fair rights to what we would be offered as a male CEO or a male co founding team. So what I would love to see is. I'd love to see women, and I'm happy to be the first to do this publicize put online their first seed round term sheets and compare that with the seed round term sheets that men get the and the reason why I say seed round just because at the seed round there's no evidence that any business is going to be successful. You're taking a bet on the founder itself, you're taking a bet on a person..
