The future of work is here... and it needs to be funny

"The last year the whole concept of work where we work how we were who we work with. Are we in. Each other's physical presence has been completely thrown up in the air and tossed around will the future of work ba- funny in your dimension. It has to be asked to be talking about everybody's roaring with laughter all day every day. But i think we need to draw attention to the mistakes that we make it work. I think we need to draw attention. To the fact that we don't have the answers and present that vulnerability. We don't have the answers like that's the thing that's so funny is that we tried to put on this facade that we do have the answers that i'm the one that can solve the problem and that's dishonest. It betrays trust and we need more trust. We need more vulnerability. We need more honesty and being open to the fact that we're human does that and that's comedy is the human experience so yes. The future of work does involve comedy doesn't involve laughter because with more and more jobs that are going to be automated more and more jobs that are going to be better done by. We have to lean into what makes us human and what makes us human is our creative side and is our ability to connect with one. Another and humor is part of both of those processes.

Future Work in Local Food Production

"We have a serious food problem. And according to the international monetary fund the price of food has skyrocketed from a low point during the pandemic lockdown in april twenty twenty food. Prices have increased a whopping forty seven percent. And if you shop weekly like i do. Then you've certainly felt the pinch our once. Reliable agricultural model scaled a food pipeline driven on abundant water supplies millions of acres of rich farmland a huge supply chain and cheap labor the pandemic and climate change destroyed that model to feed the nation in the world we must pivot to a new economic model that supports future work in local food production and jobs and local food will support millions of people in need and their communities. Here are some key considerations for supporting future work in local food production first food that travels long distances to grocers loses its nutritional value instead growing local food ensures. That consumers are better fed and that leads to better health outcomes especially in so-called food. Deserts second agribusiness draws billions of gallons of water from sources before consumers can get their supply however parts of california are into their twenty first year of extreme water scarcity by contrast local food producers use water more conservatively and a local food system enables more people in need to access clean water even when water supplies are low third local food. Production can provide good jobs to people entering the workforce. It also doesn't require advanced degrees to do and work skills. Needed are often easy to learn and adopt

I was wondering if you could tell our audience about pluto. Shift what is it. And what is your parole in the company. I'm that the joshi on the ceo. Ludo shift and We are headquartered in palo alto california and pluto shift is an operational data platform. But it means is. It's a tool to monitor physical infrastructure. And it's built for companies that make the guts like food and beverage and chemicals manufacturing so on and so forth so we held them. Keep an eye on it by using the data that already collecting so a lot of what you do revolves around artificial intelligence. Is that correct. That is correct. yes. I'm wondering if you could share with us for those that don't know what artificial intelligence or a is how you would define that and beyond that. How do you contrast it with machine. Learning to me is the ability of a machine to perform tasks that require human intelligence is a state of existence and the system and make decisions on itself now. How those decisions are made that many different frame with to do that. But at the core of its an ability that we can instill into a machine by providing a framework on how a decision gets made.

A Coworking Community of First Believers

"Get started. I'll ask you an about launch pad. You and chris co founders of launchpad. What is that exactly so launch pad is a network co working spaces really focused on smaller communities what we call them into markets throughout the united states. And we're located in nashville newark. New jersey stockton california new orleans. And we're coming to many other cities like mesa arizona and louisville kentucky. So we've really focused on becoming part of the entrepreneurial community and acting as a home base for entrepreneurs of all kinds. So i'm going to ask you about your locations in a bit but i wanted to ask you about your unique value proposition. I mean you're playing in a growing space. What defines launch pad among all other players in the space i think the biggest factor is an alignment with the success of our members. We really focus on people who are working on cnn. Really is the way that we define our marketing so that's much more expansive than just people starting a startup right. There's a lot of people who are working entrepreneurial league whether you are starting to start up a small business freelancer even working remotely. The nature of work is changing so much and we really focus on helping her members be successful in whatever their goals and aspirations are a lot of people are new to this and we believe that diversity of member shall ross. The types of businesses in diversity on level is so important so the lot of factors that set launch pad art and. I'm sure we'll we'll talk a little bit about sort of the ups and downs of the co working world today in the in the on gas. But we've been around for ten years and have really focused on the growing success of ecosystems that we play a part in that starts with helping the members that work at launch pad really achieved their roles. So when when i was doing my research a term popped out of the text and that was first believers. What does that mean. And why is it so important at launch pad. They mainly sat down and belts sort of the core values with business and or operating communities that we serve. I believe i one that always talks up and crystals. Everyone's firstly a ride often on journey. You hear the words know whether that from an investor whether it's from your mother whether it's from your little that little guilty had You're telling you that it's not gonna work and what you really need levers and so me think of that as sing the level within lunchtime and oftentimes those folks were working in the community. They are each other's levers members to show every day. They're the ones you hear the saab sorting things go wrong. Who celebrate the for sale. Who ring the bell with you. And you create this environment where we're all sort of on this entrepreneurial jury ourselves and help each other and we consciously about it every day about being people's first lemurs and we do that in righty one. It's the cities that we choose so we often go to places that maybe be overlooked by big providers or big big Operators in our space and we take bets on the city's because we really believe in supporting them supporting their entrepreneurs and we also believe that being i believe her is not just about writing a check. It's also being someone's purse customer so we try actively to support our businesses within launchpad by not only being their mentor their friends but to be their customer many years ago before i even started executive recruiting. I tried my hand at starting a new suspect on intellectual property. I spent a lot of money. I wrote a patent got a patent issue and then i tried becoming operational as a startup and was so soul-crushing and yes i got told no every day i never heard yes and i was like how can i put up with this so i can see the value in doing that. You know it's so true. I it's the journey of any entrepreneurial venture hearing no all day long in whatever role you are and it's also the internal journey right. I think the first believers concept is really the antidote to imposter syndrome. rain holds us back is am. I truly the ceo of this company. Am i truly hanging my big corporate job in stepping out to follow my passion project and so by being a community of first believers has not just us founders that that believe in our members radium culture where people believe in each other and push each other and support each other along that journey wondering if you could give me a sense of how that gets flushed out. So i'm a startup entrepreneur. I set up shop at launch. What can i experience at launch pad. That's going to help me flush out my business model in my path to success. Oftentimes the process starts before you become a member and typically what we see a lot of the journeys especially for startup founders. Is they'll connect with one of us or another member of our community around something as simple as pitch practice or a mentor session. Or hey i'm looking to raise money. Can i tap into your network to connect with others and get some funding. You know they always say if you ask for money you'll get good advice and we have that conversation with us. Start to be able to demonstrate the power of the network the power of the platform and power those connections and oftentimes some of the way we recruit startups into launchpad is through those very first early conversations. Once they join the community we have an on boarding process for folks where we connect people. It's starting out. A co working. Space is a little bit starting your first day at school or your first day at your job and we approach that very similarly by creating programs and connection points doing a little member matchmaking. So that folks who have like minded challenges or personalities or different types of businesses. We can connect them. And so we're really sort of smooth the path of on boarding in the community and then we have a variety of different programming and curriculum and supportive activities that happen throughout the year to be able to support entrepreneurs obviously dumb one some group sessions but we really sort of enable the platform to basically support it. And what we end up seeing these collisions of connection moments where people come together and they find their technical co founder amongst our member base or they find their first customer if they're hanging their shingle to be a consultant. Every time we do surveys of our member base about the benefits of being at launchpad we consistently hear that it helps them do more business. It helps them be more professional helps them achieve more their goals. That's fabulous so you take a lot of the sting out of being a startup entrepreneur with dimension. We also are sort of on converts so we understand deeply the challenges that we all face. And i mean i think especially in a year like we've had with the pandemic with twenty twenty struggled ourselves as as many businesses and i think it's been really valuable for us to be able to share those struggles in to go through that together with our members. We wake up every day. Thinking about launch pad are members. Were not a big corporation. We don't wanna be. And i think that really comes through in terms of the connection points that we can make with entrepreneurs are our

Yeah that's right so let's get started so since the world shut down in march of two thousand twenty how we work and where we were cav radically changed and some of us have pivoted to working from home. Fulltime actually had been doing it like twenty eight years. I'm sort of the out liar. Others have adjusted to hybrid work arrangement. Where part of the week. There in a traditional office and part of the week they're working remotely such is at home. What are your impressions of and insights over this dramatic shift in how we work so i heard this great analogy the other day. That life is now like a box of legos. We may not be able to build the spaceship but we can build a really great castle. We've gotta work with what we have right and that's gonna mean rebuilding the interior of that castle periodically and that's kind of where we are right now. I think so this pandemic. It's testing us all and we all have different challenges and i think that relates directly to emotional intelligence. It's never been more important to be emotionally intelligent and utilize those skills than it is now so if i may just start by sharing what emotional intelligence really is because i think there may be some misconceptions about that. A lot of people don't understand the nuances of emotional intelligence. It's not just being nice to people and being a good communicator. And i'm gonna call it e q. Disner privaty so e q.

"So I think you know find something that you really believe in and I do believe in science and you Figure out a way to work in that piece of it and bring the skills that you have because as a former journalist, I was very good at explaining things to people and people would go on and on on off and especially in Academia, you know, they just go on and and I used to think. Oh my God, they're just smarter than me. But when I went worked at Harvard Business School for a year as a researcher and what I realized was academics are not the people at Harvard. They might have been better academically than I was but they were not smarter than me. I mean, right because I would go and would say so what's your PhD about right and they would go on and and on and on and I was I would glaze over after about five minutes. I've said took my daughter if you can't explain what you want to do in two sentences. Go back to the drawing board. Well, it's true. I mean Married An MIT PhD doctoral student and dead. He wrote a nine hundred and some-odd Page dissertation. One of the longest ones in the history of MIT and I didn't think he was ever going to finish took years. But when he finally looked at me and he told me into sentences exactly what his dissertation was about. I knew it was done and I think you know, if you can help people do things like that. It's very enervating and it's also satisfied so Amy Stern thank you so much for Walking the Tightrope. Let me ask if somebody wanted to learn about you bring in your company. How would they find you? And and where are you on social media? So I'm I have a PR company called Brave now pr.com nice name, and I also just created a second site called Brave now content Wu. Which has a lot of things that I've written because I find more than many people. Are people I like to write things down. I like to help people do bylined articles. I like to help them get their point of view out there. I like to help them crystallize who they are and what they believe and why it matters and so some of that is is journalistic, but some of it is just understanding content and brand and you know, who should you be? What is your best self? And to me? That's just been my life much better than I hope it makes there's better too and you have the last word. Thank you so much for being on the tightrope today.

I'm fortunate to be able to do that professionally and also personally I'd love to have you do the same thing as a storyteller. So that's what we talk about with Dan. It is absolutely a great conversation. Plus don't fast forward to it but wait till the end where he tells his last story that I always ask my my guess. His last story is awesome. It is such a serendipitous story for the day that we recorded so I hope you enjoy that as well so without further ado. Let's get to the stories. Dan Mullen welcome to the storytellers network. Thank you for taking time to address story in this world in which you live.
