"Businessweek with Carol matter and Bloomberg quick takes Tim stiff from Bloomberg radio So last week we featured a little bit of our conversation with Michael Dell It was when he talked about the near term outlook for Dell Technologies and really the broader technology sector There's so much going on certainly in the financial markets when it comes to tech stocks and really just broader in terms of some macro themes Well in part two of our conversation we're going to dive deeper into the billionaire innovators origins We also got his thoughts on the labor crunch taking place across the U.S. and also what he thinks is the next big technological breakthrough Here's a hint AI is going to play a big role That's a pretty big hint too Yeah this is just going to say Unfortunately this interview is featured in this week's double issue It's part of our Bloomberg business we talk series And we start off with a story from Dell's new book it's entitled play nice but when a CEO's journey from founder to leader and it's about facing down activist investor Carl icon when he bought a stake in the company in Dell and tried to block Michael Dell's move to take the company private It was very hard You know I didn't really have much experience dealing with somebody who would just go on television and lie You know that's not something I had experienced very often in my business career But ultimately as I talked about in the book I did go to his house and confront him and really saw that he didn't have any plan Whatsoever for the company And to him it was just a big poker game and it turned out to be way more difficult than I thought as was chronicled on Bloomberg television and radio very extensively I remember it It was a story that never ended Until it did And fortunately we were able to accelerate our transformation our shareholders got some of the benefits of our transformation if we were successful which would turn out we were without taking on any of the risk And you know I learned how to face down Carl icahn So there you go I'm wondering Michael if you missed the days of running a company that's private that doesn't have a report card available to you Each and every day Monday through Friday from 9 30 to four every day where you watch the company's stock move because you do talk a little bit in the book about the way that big swings in the company's stock would make you feel and the way that you thought that analysts and investors were missing it Do you miss the days of not running a public company Well I've done both right And the key for us was really putting the company on a different trajectory And back in 2012 and 2013 the markets really didn't give us permission to go invest in those new areas Now I think we're in a different spot new capabilities new growth rate and new trajectory And we also reignited that entrepreneurial spirit which was the formation of the company and very much kept that alive Even as we transitioned back to being public again Well you know it's interesting too and we've really leaned on I think even more so during the pandemic are our leaders right Of companies to help us get it through I think about Black Lives Matter And one of the things we wanted to ask you and it feels like from reading your book you don't play around too much or carefully around politics And I can understand that for CEOs But your home state of Texas you know I have a lot of family in Texas You seem to be you know you really love that state And you write a lot about it in your book How do you feel about things like the abortion law and the voting rights one Would you have spoken out about Yeah I have spoken out about voting rights and certainly we've communicated with our team members about some of the recent laws Look I would much rather see our policymakers focus on education and infrastructure and broadband and the things that will help the state continue to be successful And as we've communicated to our team members our belief is that you know they should have more access to healthcare not less Do you worry though about some of these issues that it'll hurt Dell's ability to track talent especially in Austin Or generally speaking Haven't seen that problem yet We'll see how it plays out And again our company will go where the talent is and let's see also how the courts rule on these things and I think there's still a lot that we don't know about how this plays out You're like I want to stick on talent because we have spoken to executives in recent months who've said hey the labor crunch that we're seeing is really across the spectrum from hourly employees all the way up to executives If you had to raise wages to attract and retain talent well you're always adjusting compensation and benefits A pretty pleased with our attrition our data says we're in the lower quartile of attrition So haven't really had an enormous challenge there as I know many companies have And look you know our job is to create an inspiring and passionate environment where people can do their very best work And we attract a lot of young people into our company give them those opportunities I think if we keep doing that we'll be just fine It is a company that we know we've all talked about it you know the king of growing storage device market We know cloud computing is changing all of this A former we were talking to some of our colleagues a former AMC executive telling them that EMC was once the last or was the last great storage company they'll never be another one So what is the future of that market in your view And how do you think Dale specifically can benefit from that Well the interesting thing is if you peel back the onion on just about anything that's going on you were talking about crypto earlier Finance autonomous vehicles you know just pick your new thing that's happening behind all of that is an enormous amount of data And it turns out you need a lot of cloud infrastructure no matter where it is And you need a lot of data to make all these things happen And so as the number one company in the world that provides all of that we're seeing some really nice growth in those areas So I think the world's kind of figuring out yeah public cloud is a thing but it's not just the public cloud It's multi cloud It's also the edge and there's enormous growth going on as everything in the world becomes intelligent and connected and now with 5G the distributed computing world is even more distributed All that creates enormous opportunities for us Have to say that you know we want to talk a little bit about innovation We've got a few minutes left Mike Bloomberg stopped by my desk I was working I have a huge pile of books and he's like do you read all of these And I'm like I try I said but one book I'm reading right now is Michael Dell's new book And he's like I know Michael And he goes really smart guy really innovative guy And it was just kind of interesting And he talked about you know how you reinvented your company When it comes to innovation reinvention what are the technologies that you think we should be focusing on What gets you excited Is it crypto Is it AI Is it something is it the metaverse What do you think is interesting Because reading your book I mean you've been involved in the tech space that you were a kid And I just wonder what really catches your attention now Yeah you know the power of AI to again use all this data to upend and reinvent every part of our world and society is incredible I think they're going to be incredible innovations in the intersection of the biological and computational sciences in all the areas you talked about it's hard to predict exactly how all these things are going to evolve but when you have these powerful ingredient technologies coming together and look you have an enormous amount of risk capital right now that's going after these problems and even harder hard tech problems I think the future is super bright for humankind That's still technologies founder chairman and CEO Michael Dell of the next big tech breakthrough Check out his new book play nice but win a CEO's journey from founder to say Tim it's a fun read It's a really fun read We get a lot of books.

"Taught a lesson that they shouldn't take fans they shouldn't take advantage of fans as they try to do other week and i'm glad because it was two days. Who's mary upsetting. This episode is just one of many podcast included in these small business. Pod france presented by dell technologies.

Names in the podcast world. Like jill schlesinger from jill on money rhett and link of your biscuits and many more defined more participating. Podcasts searched for dell technology. Small business pod prince on the odyssey app spotify or apple podcasts at the end of this episode great rant lots of subtle and some unsubtle jabs at the nba will say that lots of your your example to me was basically like. Let's let's have. The clippers lakers play six times a year. You know it loses its its luster to a degree. Let me ask you a question about the nba as a foreigner who really only going to the nba. When i met. Jj when i met jj crop. Li got all in. And i went to clippers games even to philadelphia a couple of times to see you i. I'm proper in where when you're playing. I watch but i'm also not. It's not in blood like you can tell like football is everything to me. Basketball's like it's good. I'll watch it. It's great i don't get it. You plan entire season hop three quarters of a season. You are playing for a league position of who. You're going to play in the playoffs. That is fundamentally at its core slightly a waste of time. I'm wrong like you could lose a game tomorrow. It was above your fans that the mavericks fans aren't going to walk around upset because there's another game in two days and it doesn't really affect your position at the season. It's all about the players the season it's all about the players english football from the first minute of the season in august to the last minute. And may you are playing for three points or one point and it's li- for that and it's europe opponents not europe it's relegation is promotion and that means everything wins something whereas i've seen finds leaving the stadiums and often it's like well we gotta be in the trial or we throw a season you know who who potentially sometimes losing games on poverty. We were talking about for your bed like some of the teams without naming names. Jj the mavericks are playing now. Do not want to win. I don't wanna win. Bed is better off. If they don't win. That would never happen in english football but never have. There was a game the other day on english football wherever the team in six. That was the team meetings accommodated. It's teaming like fifth or six desperately trying to get to force. They qualify for europe and there was a team in seventeen if they lose their down a division all of next year. This was the most exciting game of football. You're ever going to find versus a game. V versus seventeenth box office in the nba. I'm watching a game. I'm like well. They're going to be in the playoffs. They're going to be these guys in the class. What's the point of his. And that's what the owners would trying to some. Just bumming jj out. I'm having an existential crisis right now about the last fifteen years of my life. What was the point of all of it ben. What was going. I i was i was. I said this to ben last week when we talked about this. But it is interesting to me. When this whole discussion about the play in game or potentially doing like a mid season tournament Similar to like maybe like the fa cup in in england like our league is trying to figure out ways to be more like european football whereas like this group of owners did the exact opposite so it was just. It's a weird sort of just juxtaposition. Yeah and their argument is no no. We want affecting the domestic game. We're only talking about europe. That's naive because the domestic game is all about who qualifies europe. And who gets relegated but i would say one thing ben in response to the thing about what we're talking about teams losing on purpose. People are going to respond to incentives. And if there's no consequences in place i e relegation and the incentive is you could potentially get a better draft pick since. Then yeah this behavior is going to continue. But it's built your league. And i don't mean to come on a polk costas so because i get the nba. I love it. I sometimes struggle with it. Because it feels like it's a it's a league to league built for the onus and it's a league built for business and all americans sports though that's not just the the nfl's the same way i'll get. That's not britain. it's not football. Football is definitely money. Don't get me wrong this huge money. That's in the game but ultimately it's built by the fines and it's for the fans and we don't have a choice if these foreigners are gonna come and by off football crops we get it but don't try and change our game. You can't do that. That's not allowed. I was gonna ask you. Do you think that the american owners not to specifically call them out but because they're used to moving american teams moving cities with no repercussions from anybody. No no protests in the streets league not only in certain cases. Leagues actually encouraging. It and helping them do it. Do you think they were. They were naive a little bit in terms of like. Oh we think we can just do this and this happens in the us all the time and even though people in specific cd might be upset about it. There's really no way of stopping it. And they were not ready for like the what what it means to the people like you know. They weren't ready for it and some of them have their phone numbers and they definitely weren't ready for the tax but that's for another day. I think they thought that naively. I think they thought some supporters would be excited by the idea of us always being in europe. Whereas i wanna be in competition that i deserve to be in the right to ban rather than one that i've just been given because my owner is friendly with the other owners. That's the first thing. And the second thing is i think that they were thinking about the international audience they were thinking about. Cbs and how. Cbs would love real madrid vs arsenal every week. But actually have cbs but real real madrid and also it didn't mean a thing because it's nothing like that no one cares about and you plan them six times a year. Then actually they wouldn't have been the market there. You can't take over a sport where people care passionately about. Remove the passion and expect people still to care so yeah. I think they were naive and look. There's many great things about the nba. Many great great things about the nba. So this isn't me knocking the nba. Just saying two different sports bill on two very different foundations and to try and put one into the other is a square peg in around hope. i think that's all very fair. I think that's very fair Ben this has been awesome. Thank you for the time. Thank you for talking about your career. Full well the last year all the things you're passionate about We really appreciate it. I i've loved being. And i and i have to say i do think i wanted to say one thing before we go and i'm sorry if i've rambled on about leslie moonves and grammy's and civil leagues but hey listen you got me on a good night constant talking but i think it's i think he's done such a great job with this podcast podcast. I genuinely do it. Keeps me occupied an amused and entertained and informed. And i think the pair of you is the new kellyanne ryan it really is. It's it's a magnificent parent. I lead to see you both. Thank you for having me. It's always wonderful to see fritzy. But hey thanks so much for listening to our conversation.

"Matters because there's still a chance of gaining a fourth and if you get to fourth you're in champions league and if you're in champions league the next season then you could be paying real madrid and you're in a knockout tournament. That could one day lead to glory. If i could choose one thing to have more than any other in the world. If you said to me right now. Ben got a choice. England the world cup. You win an oscar. Give me some choices. That don't involve my family. Everything will be no. I just want to win the champions league one day in my lifetime. So what i want. I won and i used to travel as jj said when i was at university and even when i was a twenties thirties i free. Twas abidjan two years ago from america to go to that europa cup final. It matters to us so much praying in europe over the years. These foreign owners have come into the game and they've seen us franchises and brands which we not working class clubs created by the fans created by local people imbredded in the community that they serve no football club. Whatever up sticks and moved to a different part of england no franchise would ever go. Hey awesome now in manchester. It's just not the way it works. Just not the way it was. You are your team. You are your local. I don't have a choice. I support me teams arsenal. So i'm awesome. That's the way is but these foreign owners have come in various different clubs as abu dhabi owners in not just saying it's americans as abu dhabi owners at man city. There's a russian owner chelsea. There's american owners at liverpool and manager at a michael arsenal. And we've always been worried that maybe they didn't necessarily fully understand what this team means to local people and what it means to the four thousand in that stadium every single week and the wider community. Because it's not just the four thousand care about it. It's the millions in london that care about it and they showed us last week that truly they couldn't have really understood it because what they create it was they said without telling anybody without consulting any of the fans twelve elite teams six of them english and unless only took the english ones for second because the the six from abroad is a different story. That's an that's that's a whole another thing but these six mansa emmanuel it liverpool chelsea. You could say those are four of the best teams. Then ask no. My team and tottenham tottenham eighth or ninth. We're probably eleventh right now. We're not in the top sixteen. We may be the top richest sixteens in english. We're not in the states. They decided they were pulling the champ. All of our six hours of competition in the champions league the competition that i've grown up dreaming of one day winning european championship of i've gone to bed at night crying because we're out of it. When we lost a by munich or pouch salonika all seems over. The is one day. We'll get that. But the owners in their great wisdom decided not shimano. They were going to decide to make their only. They would basically trying to make the nba where they would take the best teams in europe twenty teams only and every year the same fifteen founding members would always be in this european competition however good they were in their domestically we could finish seventeenth with being the european league every week and we would play each other five or six times during the season and essentially they were trying to tell us into a franchise. What does that mean. why is that negative. Firstly it means nothing if you win it because it's a tournament the no one cares about no one's qualified to be in it. No one's one. They're li no one's finished in the top four of their domestically league to be in so it means nothing it's a meaningless trophy that they're awarding themselves. That's the first thing second thing is when it looks like you're gonna lose it. What does it matter. we're in it next year. We're one of the founding members because all billionaire owners decided that's how life should be so therefore there's no jeopardy in it is no jeopardy and and i think there's it as an outsider arkansas about the nba for a while. But let's park that for a second but there's no jeopardy in it checkable. Sorry third will i remember. Got him a lab. I remember going to milan that night. We went sess fabra guys in sierra read scored i remember that night in madrid when sierra anri when we want one. I'm celebrating in madrid. I remember those nights. They meant something because those are the games as a football fan. You strive for then what we support the game for they are. They are liberal guy games. That mean everything. I remember not european cup. We lost to barcelona it. We were gonna play them six times a year. Each one of them. I don't wanna pay real madrid six times a year. I don't wanna play anyone six years. Our football works. Let's you we play. We wanna play everybody. We wanna play the small teams because then small teams compete the big teams and then they could qualify for you because that's the fun of foot. Well that's the idea of it. So firstly the whole thing was awful appointments second votes then it also grew it would ruin our domestically and the reason it would ruin the primarily as you'd have six teams that had three times the money of all our opponents and so then you're in a league where six teams have a ton more money than the other. Fourteen one unfair leaks being. I don't want to be in that league. I don't want to be a league where it's just pointless but also if we're not going to win the league because let's say with six or seven. We got nothing to play for anymore. We're not gonna win the league we don't need to finish in the top four qualify. For your we're already in you. You know what. Let's rest the kids. Let's play the kids rest the big players and instead they're going to be planned real madrid for the eighteen time this year instead on on saturday. Oh football both domestic and european became worthless and meaningless and it broke our hearts because it was people who have taken over our clubs who some of which we trusted at big just categorically didn't understand what made the club valuable in the first place they just didn't get the game and so it was a brutal for hours where we definitely thought it was going to happen and it was a dog time but luckily they did realize the power of the fan base. They didn't realize there would be riots in the street. Safe rights protests. They didn't realize that the government would bring in laws to stop it and then it got to a stage where our prime minister who. I've never liked. But suddenly that week i did. Boris johnson is saying well they're not gonna be able to use the police the games. We're not any you anymore. So we might not let the players into the country they were coming up with ways of making it incredibly difficult for these owners and it was a decision. That was not making football better. Don't think for a second. It makes football better. It wouldn't it would destroyed domestic football. It would have destroyed the european for it also would have killed the ninety. Well not nice to nice to mine six. It would have killed all of the other clubs in football. That had nothing to play for anymore. They had no hope. And all the teams in europe who can compete against the real madrid in the basle and that team hapoel tel-aviv. That team pout. Salonika that seeming slavia. Prague who could have taken on the big teams and it was all done because they wanted to create create the nba and it was outrageous. I would just say in the end of this runs. And i'm sorry if i went onto. Its but you asked me something. I'm passionate putting. This ran on youtube by the way. And just just broken out your wrath on this committee. I would say one thing and that is that they came around and they realized are they realized. It was a terrible decision. I was pleased with the owner. Statement of ultra awesome. Were the only club that at least apologize. They said we're really sorry. Willie messed up. Essentially the train was leaving the station. We weren't going to not get on it. I don't think that my football club. Behind this. And i think that's important if you're gonna put this on youtube that into because i don't think i think this was instigated by john henry liverpool. Who's always wanted to european suply by joe. Glaser man united and by the madrid teams. Who are upset by real madrid and barcelona who are broke and need this money because they are in a nothing division with as only three teams. That can have a compete for anything. Unlike english for anybody can win and so i. I'm glad that it came to an end. I think that the owners.

"Everybody's in the studio and people are constantly worried. About how close the arctic people etc i think having communicated in that way with the transparency and honesty in the urgency.

"Midst of all this and they encountered they're all whole set of cova complications because the way covid impacted shipping alone in production of all these things. They navigated all that. The mythical society team did an incredible job continuing to grow the society during a time. Where i think that the site became that much more important than it has ever been because people wanted to have some kind of connection when they were were isolated so our team and not dimension that they were able to do all these things in a way that the direct impact of our team being so excellent and being able to continue to deliver these products in an excellent way enabled us to be able to continue to grow in a year where a lot of media companies were shrinking. We actually hired since the beginning of work from home which we mentioned was march of twenty twenty we've added fourteen staff members to mythical and these people many of them have never met them in person and because it's all been overseas and they don't even know what they've never met anybody ever know what life and mythical light because they've been working from home and working through their computers now eventually. We'll all be able to get together and see what we look like in three dimensions but again the credit goes to i. I mean. I think they're to me. There are there are two two main reasons why we were able to pull this off so to speak in a time when a lot of businesses really struggled. And it's really a testament to the industry that we're in and the people that we've got working here. I mean the first piece of it is like you said we're not a restaurant that had to completely change our business. We don't have a storefront. We're not retail. Those people really really suffered because their entire business model change we all we had to do was figure out a way to get these videos onto these platforms that we post on and it was not an easy process and it was a very difficult and time consuming challenging in the standards were changing and all these things are constantly..

"Small business pod. France on the odyssey app spotify or apple podcasts. At the end of this episode. Let's talk about something that was completely unexpected. June thirtieth twenty twenty. So we're just starting to kinda get all this together and to be able to produce this show in a limited fashion. But it's pretty much the same show jacob Gets a call by the way. He's in his car he he's like he's driving somewhere. I think to seven. Pm seven pm call. He gets a call from the fire department and had to go out of town and he gets this call. Oh yeah he was getting ready to go on vacation. Yeah navigation what is vacation meaning like just to go out of town in st be alone in another house. I don't know way was but the fire department says your studio is flooding rapidly because a car has knocked off a fire hydrant in front of the building. And just like okay. When i when i hear that this has happened. I'm like okay. Actually what i heard. The first thing that i heard was that somebody hit this was because it went in the general slack. Somebody saw video of it and put it in general slack. They're like somebody hit a hit a fire hydrant right in front of our studio. And it's shooting water straight up in the air and some of it's getting on the roof. It's like a geyser but what we did not know and and just so you understand. Water is very very heavy and water is so heavy that it has the ability to break through a roof. And here's what happened so we actually saw this video later. You told me the minivan okay. So i'm talking about the. Let's start outside okay. We see footage security footage of a minivan swerve off the road onto the sidewalk. Go run over the fire. Hydrant is knocked away. Like it's just like it's liking like somebody just sweeping sweeping turned off the street. And so and then the van and the fire hydrants keep going and then all of a sudden it leaves just a whole like a geyser immediately just going straight up into the air i mean like one hundred fear mean it was probably probably forty or fifty second video. This video comes from our internal security cameras right. And because jacob is try to hear him until the store he's trying to figure out what it looks like inside the building. Hey we have cameras inside of our building. He pulls up the live feed the first thing he sees is. Is this the foyer right. So this is basically the the lobby and you've got our front desk there. He sees water flowing through the lobby but then he's like. How deep is that water. Well he sees a chair that is from the stage. Where smash shoots Try not to laugh like that stage..

"To have to start shooting additional episodes at home separate from each other. Yeah you know. Honestly there were there were these discussions about us getting together and filming but with so much uncertainty and because we were we were telling the mythical crew to to be as aggressively safe as possible. We decided yeah. It was important that we each film from our own homes and we worked out the ability to like to frame everything so that we could split screen the two of us together and you know it was. It was kind of a fun challenge. I was i. That's how i was trying to look at it but we wanted to make that decision to say. Yeah we're maybe we could talk ourselves into being together like we're in some pot or in the same family but we're gonna take. This is seriously as possible. We want to send that message. That was the main thing that was behind the split screen episodes. Gm that we would film and then let's see. We had the camera that was filming but then we had other cameras that were broadcasting to google chat where all of our crew could could watch us and communicate with us as if they were in the room with each of us it was it was very complicated from a technical standpoint and yeah we were doing it all ourselves and it was so we had a pretty that out and it was at that point. I would say like day two of having to do that in my own. Living room where the frustration began to to to set in and having to coordinate the chat and to turn the camera on to make sure it was in focused having the props and setting it all up and of course. We both made the decision. I think for lighting reasons and aesthetic reasons to like do out in open areas in our house like you. You're in your dining room. Which is open to the rest of your house. And i was in my living room which is open to the rest of my house so there was a whole lot of like shaw kids. Like telling your kids to be quiet which everybody's they weren't at school so everybody stuck at home and dad's saying he's gonna go and set up and living room and shoot his show and you gotta be quiet. And it was at that moment that i began to not that i didn't already but had a dis- disadvantage causing me to appreciate our team and all the different pieces of the puzzle that they bring to the table where we can just sit down and just be ourselves and make good morning but not have to worry about being the producer in the cameraman and all.

Use Self-Knowledge to Be Happier and More Successful as a Small Business Owner.
"Whenever the subject of how to be happier comes up by getting more sleep exercising reading more whatever it might be and whenever people are talking about how to work more effectively with clients customers and co workers. I always think about the four tendencies. It is so helpful especially now that everything is changing and we're entering this post covid world. Yeah you know. I have to say i think it really is a tool that many people find useful. The ford tendencies is a personality profile that i created the divides people into fort tendencies upholder questioner oblige or or rubble. And when you know someone's tendency and we you know your own tendency you can really set yourself up for success. You can understand why you're miss communicating with someone. You can understand why you're procrastinating and how to fix it. You can understand why somebody may be doing something that seems inexplicable or irritating to you. That they makes perfect sense from their perspective gretchen. I'm obliged as i mentioned urine ups older. Yeah explain what this means and why it matters. Yeah okay. So i will run quickly through the framework so our listeners can identify themselves and they will probably also identify some of their clients. Their customers co workers. Yeah sometimes be very easy to figure out some attended yes. Yes is often very blatant. So i'll go through that so people can situate themselves. Go back through and talk about how the tendancies might come up for small business owners whether they're trying to work more effectively with clients or customers or if they're trying to manage themselves or their own teams so what the tendencies looks at in. This sounds kind of dry. When i start but it does get juicy is it. Looks how you respond to expectations. So we all face two kinds of expectations out. Our expectations like work deadline.

"To have that little. Cpa in your back pocket isn't it. Hit is it is one of the one of the things that's interesting about. Cpi being epa is that you learn how much there is to know. And that's what makes a cpa exam so challenging. It's literally like phone books worth of information. But if you're not continuously using the information on page seven thousand four hundred twenty three on a daily basis and the laws change all the time. What really a good is one who knows to ask a lot of questions. They might not always have the answers but they can research that as talk to somebody who does and qualified small business. Doc is a great example of something where you need to make sure that you really seek out somebody who understands the intricacies so another question we got is a really good one. The is about for small businesses. What are some of the best retirement plans. That i can implement. I presume this means that. Somebody's move beyond sole proprietor. And done their ira or roth ira. And now. they're in that mode of like. Okay now i have some money. And i can fund retirement. What are some of the retirement plan options that are available for small businesses. And even if it's just a single operator of that small business it just happens to be cranking. Yeah so there are some real good juicy options there now. It's got a little simpler over time too. But i would say that. The two best options generally speaking we're going to be a solo 401k. Which will you to have sort of this profit. Sharing plan element to the plan. Which allows you to put away. A percentage of your profit for the year and do a 401k. Peace and some custodians even allow you to do roth 401k in the solo. 401k's so that is something that is definitely a great option for most companies. If you have a company that's really doing well significant profits and you're over the age of let's say fortyish let's say and you don't have significant amount of employees. Low employees may be no employees. You can do. What's called a defined benefit plan which will allow you to put away substantially more money the max in the solo 401k. That we were just talking about this somewhere in the fifties. Let's say fifty eight. Yes thank you very much defined benefit plan. Now we're talking about potentially being able to deduct in excess of two hundred thousand dollars off of your tax return to put into a retirement plan. Tell me what would happen. If mark were my employees and i have a solo 401k. What happens you'd have to have a regular 401k. At that point solo is just if you're the only one so i should have clarified that earlier. Perhaps you'd have a regular 401k. Right little more annoying now because you have a layer of expense layer of complexity to the plan a little bit. Let's call testing that. You have to do each year to make plans and compliance for the good news. Is the government's giving us what it's called a safe harbor option. So if you do this for the safe harbor which. I'll explain in a second you don't have. You'll pass all your testing and the way to do that to meet the safe. Harbor requirements is either to a make three percent contribution of the employee's salary so in other words. If they were making one hundred thousand dollars you'd put in three thousand dollars into their plan for them. It's not a match. You have to do it and memorial the employees and then you can put in whatever you want. There's no testing for yourself or you could do a match. What if i have i decide seems like a pain in the neck. I don't want to do all that testing stuff. If i have a sep. Ira et for myself. And let's just say i have. You know three employees..

"Prominent Texas corporations this week joined the call to protect voting rights, and that drew a verbal tirade from Governor Greg Abbott. We have American airlines, we have a TNT. We have a Dell computers away and others who have taken a position against the election law reforms we met in the state of Texas work, the C E O tzar of these companies and the leaders of these companies admitted. I had no idea what the Texas lost said, or whether Texas proposed law say before taking a position against it. They need to stay out of politics, especially when they have no clue what they're talking about. Grassroots opposition to these bills continues to grow on Thursday about 100 voting rights activists gathered outside the 18 T corporate headquarters in downtown Dallas. As Kate, You're raised. Christopher Connelly reports. It's part of a statewide campaign to pressure corporations to oppose Republican bills that would make it harder to vote. The activists want to send a message stand on the side of voting rights or be party to an ugly new chapter in Texas history. So why? No Pastor Freddie Haynes of French of West Baptist Church says Over the summer a TNT declared that black lives matter. But now the company's failing to support black people's right to vote right now. In Texas voter suppression is going on in the name of voter integrity, but all of us ain't fallen for the okey doke because we recognize It has ugly Route A TNT released a statement saying the right to vote is sacred and calling it the single best way to ensure everyone's voice is heard. It didn't mention the sweeping GOP bills, which would limit early voting band drive through voting and make it a crime to proactively send out vote by mail applications.

We are so proud of you. Thank you for being on the show. Thank you guys. I'm so happy to be here. It is certainly surreal but very excited to be just to kind of level set before japan so we started the skin. Twenty twelve week took in our first funding in the end of two thousand thirteen. So employees started january of two thousand fourteen and in like november kaelin emailed us called amounts that she was a consultant lever talk through her background but she loved the scam and wanted to join us and to know what that would look like and so we met her for coffee at our favorite cafe and we hired her before we had an office before we haven't seen and had no idea what her role would really be or what it would become but she was employee number one. So this is a very very full circle moment for us. So caitlin we're gonna start our interview the way we do all of them. Which is kim your resume for us. I moved to new york from california. Where i'm from to go to barnard college. I studied political science and then my first job was management consulting. I was hired into of these two year rotation all kind of entry level programs about a year and a half into that. I sent a cold email to my favorite newsletter. And you know wasn't quite sure where it would go but wanted to shoot my shot and a week later. We sat down at cafe clooney. And i walked away from that and it was like there is no world in which i'm not a part of this and hopped on board. Join you guys as your employees next three and a half years crazy amazing wild ride rings get bassedas and social amazing experience. That left and spent some time abroad moved to london. I'm started consulting on my own. Such gone freelance projects working with startups and a media. Company is my sister. And i started an organization around single use. Plastic consumptions called project. Plastic is icy k. And it was essentially like whole thirty for classic use so a thirty day curriculum to go plastic free and then i started working on gigi at the same time and launched last year. November twenty nineteen. We love jackie. And we are so proud of you as you talk through this skim. What gygi s yes. So gigi we say we make puzzles worth framing. The idea for it started in my scam days. It was just also around the same time that head space came out. There was starting to be a conversation around. Mindfulness and meditation. And i was looking for what that meant to be in kind of just a way to unwind at the end of the work day and is are doing jigsaw puzzles and found them relaxing and stress relieving. They got me away from my phone and computer. So i fell in love with puzzles. Twenty fifteen but the ones out there were just like thomas kincaid or puppies in a basket and cottage scenes and just really uninspiring our choices. So the idea kind of planted then of elevating and reinventing the puzzle. And then i started really working on it. I wanted to feature the work of emerging artists and help support their work so started creating in licensing are emerging female artists around the world they get a percentage of every sale wanted to reinvent the packaging and presentation and also saw four. What do you do with the puzzle once you're done with it so each gigi comes with puzzle glue and an applicator. So when you're done if you want to keep it and turn it into real real art
Michael Lewis in Conversation with Malcolm Gladwell and Jacob Weisberg
"I was asked to moderate a panel with two of my oldest friends. Malcolm gladwin jacob weisberg. We've known each other since the nineteen eighties when we were all young writers in the magazine. Business malcolm jacob for now the co founders of pushkin industries. The company that produces against the rules which is now underway by the way pushkin also makes a bunch of other great shows like malcolm zone revisionist history and the happiness lab with dr lori. Santos i've been watching on the sidelines over the past year as malcolm and jacob started the company so i was really happy to have an excuse to ask them all kinds of nosy questions about what they've learned about running a business together and the challenges they face and the challenges right now in our quarantine world will those are unique. You'll get to hear a little bit about that. Here's our conversation. 'cause i don't actually know the story so i would love to know how you decided to start pushing shake right. It was jacobs a star. Well i'd started one podcast company already. Which was panoply which came out of slate but as things evolve panoply turned into a technology company. I thought i was starting mainly a content company and one of the shows we'd started with revisionist history With malcolm that show was doing really well and there were some other shows. I was really interested in doing so was sort of when the earlier company under Ceo i'd hired. Who i thought was making a good decision. Wanted to make a pivot that i said. Hey maybe it's time that document. I started our own company and only do what we wanna do. I was on holiday with my family in. Can't remember where. I was somewhere in your italy in italy and jacob was in some. I think if i can tell that you truly horrible health live the villain said and he said he said that he he summoned. We do something crucial when you talk about says. I drove halfway across italy. Show up in this horrible house but road and then he likes sat outside a little chairs and had coffee and he said i wanna start a company. That's out began. What did you say yes right away. Yeah struck me as well. The backstory about this is that jacob has been. I've known jacob for thirty five years and through for some significant portion of this. I would always say jacob. I don't know why you wanted a journalist. You'd be a really great businessman. if you just. This is what you could make a huge amount of money. We could all get rich.

Celebrity Endorsements and Small Businesses with Julie Kramer and Emma Diamond
"We were presented with this opportunity. Julian i were really trying to figure out a way to put this in the context of our podcast and had incorporated of small businesses with pop culture and the celebrity content that we talk about and there are a lot of different ways to do this but something that juliana have always been really interested in is organic and at times inorganic celebrity endorsements and the effects that they have on small businesses. So we kind of decided to do. I guess the way that this episode is gonna go down is you know i. We're just gonna talk about some celebrity. Shoutout endorsements that we've seen. And i'm sure wants you guys can relate you just because they're really fun to talk about and then we actually got the chance to speak to some small business owners that have been directly impacted by these celebrity shouts and it was just like so much fun. Wasn't it so much fine like so interesting so informative in really something that i think. We care about a lot so it was so exciting process to be able to do. Yeah i just wanna give a disclaimer. None of the people that we interviewed. You know. we're not getting paid to do this. We're not getting cut of any of the prophets at all from the people that we interviewed. These are just genuinely businesses that we believe in. And you know. We took bits and pieces from each of the different conversation that we thought were the most applicable. And i'm just really excited. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as we did. So i wanna frame this by putting it in this context if you guys remember when kylie jenner did her office tour of kylie cosmetics. She's going around. She gets the part where she showing her refrigerator. And she purposely has videographer make a note to blur out her favorite drink because she said she's like if i showed this it'll be sold out immediately if i it's my favourite which you know if you know nothing about the kardashians sounds really narcissistic. But it's absolutely accurate accurate to the point. Where even though they blurted out it started a whole trend online of trying to figure out what the drink was and people are posting on twitter. And i think even read it saying like it has this label. This color like this is what we can tell from the blurred out images because people especially because blurred out. They wanted to know so badly. Yeah and especially because that was a perfect example of clearly. That wasn't a paid thing like this was really disfavor. Drinking people are by people. I mean like us. Also i think are just obsessed with what celebrities find to be worth. I think we think of people that have all the resources in the world that of course they're gonna choose the best of the best and so i think that's one of the reasons that sometimes we trust their opinions on things that aren't being paid for 'cause it's like oh if it's good enough for them you know i think yeah and i think also a lot of times. When it's a non paid endorsement. We trust so much because we have the mentality of like they could get paid for this and they like it. There's something about them saying in the weight that carries like i could get paid for this but i'm not being paid just genuinely like this so much where you're like okay. If there's something up they're putting out for free and it could be a business opportunity but they don't need it just because they like it so much. I think that carries so much weight for us consumers. I totally agree you know. Also just the power of kylie jenner's just massive in general but one of the things is she. She tweeted saying kylie fact. I eat three packs of pomegranates. Everyday and anytime. She's done towards on her apps. Or if you just see on her story she's always eating pomegranates. And her brand that she pom wonderful and it was reported that sales rose by sixty nine percent after she talked about the brand online is crazy. I like the power that kylie jenner has a think is honestly unparalleled because the opposite end of that would be when she spoke about not linking snapchat anymore tanked. That's exactly what. I was about to say about snapchat wishes. They were pom wonderful
The Genesis of The Miniseries Podcast "Blockbuster"
"We wanted to share with you guys. A bit of our journey of how we went about starting this production company that specializes in storytelling and all those stages that we went through so if you a follow us and please do subscribe to blockbuster on all of your podcast listening apps. But you'll see that. The of the series is epic cliff media. I think now it says epic originals and as some of our listeners may know that's My company that i started in two thousand fifteen when i left my job as a investigative journalist i was with cbs. At the time I put my own savings and credit cards and a lot more into camera and audio equipment to start filming a documentary and that was a film About the world's most well known film. Composers like khan zimmer. John williams of course Danny elfin like fifty others that we ended up interviewing and that film was called score a film music documentary. It's where i met peter Where i met. Elena and peter and i worked together on that film. He did the sound for it. He won awards for the sound for it. And its success led to a spin off interview. Show that we've been doing for the last three years called score the pod counties that interviews a lot of these composers working on modern things and it's a cool kind of you know peek behind the curtain and then all let us to this idea for blockbuster which is a scripted narrative miniseries that put kind of my journalism background and And peter's extraordinary sound design together into the same kind of product that we could It hadn't been done before this idea of that. That word again bio pod. So that's kind of the short of it. The challenges like with any creative project are how to build something. Sustainable that can keep you employed and and keep the creativity flowing so specifically what we're pushing into. Is this idea of high end. Kind of immersive audio. That's done almost at a level that you would see on a feature film the storytelling skills.
How Mythical Entertainment First Married Advertising and YouTube
"First real lesson that we learned beyond those That i think is sort of the operating principle that got us off the ground as a business is. We had to find the intersection or the nexus. If you wanna use a word like that of our ability and our opportunity yeah. I mean we we. We don't need to rehash how we got from point. A. to point b. to point c. from being engineers to working for crew and then working hosting a television show called online nation. We shared all of that in episode one of our lost years series. You can go back and watch that wanna know how to how we got from point. A. to point b. to point c. But if point see is we were hosting this show online nation and it got cancelled and we were flying out to la to shoot it and then we find ourselves back in our little basement where we were making videos back at square one making videos again but we had no no income anymore. We just had the money that we made off of that show and we were living of that while we figured out what it was we were going to do. We had to develop an entirely new business plan and there was no important to note. No one was making money on youtube directly. There was no youtube partner programs. So you couldn't just make a video and nc money role in so really. There was no such thing as a professional youtuber. So it's a really interesting idea that we were like we're going to have a career because we were like. Let's make this youtube thing fulltime. Thank but yet no one was making it a career but again we were like what two things exist here. We know that we can write a funny song. We can make a funny music video. We'd had success with that. The facebook song had gone really big and the second piece of the puzzle was is we knew that there were businesses out there who wanted people to know about them. So as like okay. Can we put those two things together. Can we put our ability to write a funny song with a company that wants to advertise and put that on youtube and it was really just an open question at the time and there weren't a lot of big companies that were sponsoring videos. I think there was some of that. It's not like we came up with the idea out of absolutely nothing out of thin air but they're they're definitely they're definitely weren't big companies invest a lot of money in this platform where no one understood youtube or digital video that well but it. It seemed like our best play because the thing that we wanted to make is the thing that we could also sell or at least sell ad space in and we thought we could do a good job of making it an an an integration so that it made sense that the ad was part of it. It wasn't like a lot of videos today where you could you know. You'll be blogging or doing whatever you're doing in your video and then you could insert an ad in the middle and people would understand. And here's a coupon code and nears you know here's what here's to him. Sponsor is kind of thing so we wanted to do something that was. That was thoughtful that we can be proud of but also make money and feed our kids because we already had kids at the time that if you want if you want to really be driven to succeed at business have children have children. I have children i. They tend to be hungry and demanding. And you come home to. And you're like man i gotta get after it.

Some experts say viewers could one day be watching cybersecurity teams compete to hack one another systems could this broadened the appeal of sports among in youth and also perhaps lure them to work in the cyber security industry which is sorely in need of talent. Let's talk with wall street. Journal reporter james rundle who's part of the journals pro cybersecurity security team james. It sounds like a good idea creating an e sports category for cyber security <hes> essentially to kill two birds with one stone boosting interest in both e. sports and the overall industry yes essentially so cybersecurity has a pretty severe recruitment problem right now <hes> hundreds of thousands of vacancies in the u._s. alone millions worldwide worldwide so that areas if you can broaden the appeal attract youth through sports on maybe can help plug that gap well. The question is how interested would viewers really c._b._s. Watching sports contestants patch systems isn't this kind of a laborious process. It's a bit like watching paint dry so <hes> yeah that's the problem. You know you're watching people at the movies glorify radio watching people do the homework every competes as a there are some efforts underway to change this one gentleman who spoke to jason taylor. That's not a proof of concept where it would visualize the action going on in a game four months <hes> piece of put together something the unreal engine <hes> and it was pretty successful. There have already been cyber sports cyber sports competitions having their in the form of capture the flag contests and they're. They're more coming up on it. You talk about that yes so there was one recently in august called wicked six which pitted sixteenths from different colleges across the u._s. against each other raising money for charity. <hes> it was a bit of a test i think just to see if it could work and that kind of format with a live audience and it seemed to go pretty well that they're gonna get next year. <hes> catch the fly contest. Do you happen at most conferences throughout the world <hes> specifically defcon a blackout the the biggest ones <hes> but this is one of the first times that it's really had all the trappings of an sportswoman is a big one is scheduled to take place in the fall season featuring thousands of students discovering. What two months yes. This is the national cyber league. It's a very interesting program. That's been run since two thousand twelve. <hes> gentle daniel manson at the u. The polytechnic pomona runs it and essentially it allows high school and college students to compete individually and in teams against each other of the course of two seasons they in the spring and the full semesters and <hes> it's been pretty successful gordon <hes> just under thousand plays in two thousand twelve to around hopefully six thousand and they're they're different brackets hard medium easy. Yeah you can appeal to anybody with the super experience the security or whether a complete novus <hes> look at the practice with others of the ability types going up against prepackaged essentially couldn't student player's leverage their game experiences kind of a replacement for you know on the job bob experience when applying for cyber security position exactly yeah i mean there's a lot of people node jobs quite tough to get in specialized industries having experience already even the entry of ones and so what the n._c. L. does which is really interesting. Is they provide a scouting report for every player shows their strengths their weaknesses how did throw season <hes> and quite a few of them have polly so you're actually bringing this job interviews and getting crazy industry as a result well how many job openings are currently in the cyber security field. I imagine in their thousands of them in the u._s. There's about three hundred fifteen thousand but presence <hes> worldwide the nearly three million <hes> which is astronomical the problem being of course it's such a specialized industry can take up to ten years to train. Someone's be effective in this so you have a massive massive on ramp to what you're getting into a huge <hes> need people in the wall street journal pro cyber-security reporter james rendel.

Inside the Field: WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play
"So another golf tournament is in the book southbound championship Paul Casey your winter. We are now on the world golf championship. Dell technologies match-play event of what you and I have both been I'd say critical of just the format. I think the round Robin of the next three days is a complete waste of time. And they're trying to change it to include thirty two guys and the player said, nah. Let's here's something. I've gotta say about vow Spar last week. All right. The winning score was eight under par. Innisbrook Copperhead course, does not get enough credit for how awesome it is. Well, yes, and no, I think it got a little bit of do last year. Because Tigers in it. So everybody was watching it. So people that weren't familiar with the snake pit and everything goes on. You're like, oh, that's a decent little track. But yes by large. I would say you're correct. Yes. Because that golf course again is a golf course that is not huge. Now. It's not a big giant, golf, makers course, exactly. And you throw a live just a little bit of wind in there. It's not like it was blowing. Like it does at the Honda where blows thirty miles an hour. And guys just hate that golf course. This is a golf course. That guy's really like 'cause it forces you to hit golf shots, and I'll tell you you watching Paul Casey. There's a reason that guy is always in contention at the masters. Funny that you say that because there were plenty of guys Jason day who said that they were playing in his Brooke because it reminds them the most of agus, correct? So now, it just reminds them of Augusta has not even close to the speed, no or the length or even the width of Augusta. But the shot making that you have to hit their and surprising enough for Florida. Some of the elevations changes are similar. Yeah. And so in that's that's the beauty. That course in that tournament. That's why always when I'm in one of these pick 'em leagues. There's a, you know daily fantasy when you look at some of these guys for the masters, Paul Casey, no matter, what is one of my guys because the value you get outta him. But at the second shot course Innisbrook set can shot course, Augusta's a second. Shot. Course your drive is. Here's the thing about saying. It's a second shot course though Augusta. Yes. Because so I did a thing. I was asking guys. So I got seven seven guys or eight guys. And I asked them, you know, for here's your holes. Here's your holes. Here's your host. Give me the most important was the key to this whole and not one dude was like what you have to be on this side. And every guy started with you have to hit the fairway you have to hit the fairway, and I thought to myself as long as we've been hearing about how much of a second shot. Golf course Augusta is because of where you have to hit the green every guy that I spoke to which were all masters champions, every single one of them every single masters champion said the same thing you have to hit the fairway you do. But if you have any chance like you're not gonna accidents birdie a hole in Augusta, and it's not going to happen. Your second shot of where you land it because those gray. Raines I'd say maybe the eighteen holes two of them have greens where there's flat areas. Maybe. Yeah. So you have zero chance of scoring at. That course, if you don't land your second shot in the right area of the green to put yourself in a position to make the putt now Augusta's not hard to hit. If you don't hit the fairway at Augusta. You're not screwed. It's not accept on fifteen yet as one whole day. That's right fifteen. You gotta hit the right, so yeah. Because in your popping it out for to your punching up for three you're laying. You're you're giving away scoring hole or not doesn't really matter on them.
Dell shareholders back return to the public market
"We're taking a look at sales returned to the public markets in two thousand thirteen the computer company quit the NASDAQ in a controversial twenty four billion dollar buyout. But now five years later and after a fierce fight among some key shareholders. Michael Dell's technology company is set to listen to the new York Stock Exchange are US editor of the lex column. Sajida in that talks to Amy keen about what's bringing the company back to the public market. And why some shareholders resisted the deal? So G starts with what prompted Michael Dell to take his company private just a few years ago. So dull, obviously, it was the famous stop. He c- maker Michael Dell started the company in the eighties. When he was a college student and his dorm room at Texas. It was hot company for a really long time. But say ten years ago, you know, the PC became much less important smartphones were here, the the iphone and the like, and so he ended up spending like fifteen billion dollars between twenty ten and twenty twelve trying to turn delicacy off company, a much broader tech company, the market hated that. It's down shares like twenty five percent between twenty ten and twenty twelve and around the same time he had met this guy. Egon Durban who was a private equity investor to firm called Silverlake, which is a Silicon Valley based buy out firm, which is quite prominent both in Silicon Valley and in Wall Street and doing these buyouts, and they happen to be neighbors in a Wii. And so they had the idea that they could take Dell private buy out the public shareholders, and then reinvent this company and private so through the course of twenty thirteen the announced the deal and. By the end twenty thirteen they were able to tail private at a twenty four billion dollar valuation is very controversial a bunch of shareholders protested because they thought Michael Dell was a CEO, and he knew things that no one else did. And if he's buying why should we selling? But ultimately, they're all able to push the deal through and Dell became a private company in late. Twentieth. Thirteen and so if you fast forward five years Dell is going to be coming back to the public markets. What's changed? What happened over this period? Yeah. So the whole plan was to turn around and reinvent the company, which they did very dramatically Silverlake is a private equity firm. And so they have investors who are pension funds, and sovereign wealth funds and endowments who after five seven ten years want their money back. So it's natural for companies that go private like delta to relist again. And so what they've done in the last five years is that they really did till it turn del into this like one stop shop for corporate IT department. So they bought most prominently EMC, which is a tech data vendor for sixty seven billion dollars. They offload. A divisions that didn't fit anymore, and they've turned into this company that really can go up against Cisco HP and IBM and companies like that Sajid in order for Dow to have the backing to list again this time in the new York Stock Exchange, they company needed shareholder support. Can you walk us through what led to the vote that took place on Tuesday places start with that as we have to go back to the EMC deal, which happened 2016 EMC was a sixty seven billion dollar company. Dell was big it was perhaps thirty forty billion. Maybe at the time twenty five something like that. So it was private. So we don't actually know what the valuation was. But the point is he was much bigger. And so two by all of EMC offered their shareholders to things that gave them twenty three dollars per share in cash and the gave them a piece of paper called tracking stock to track. Another company called VM ware VM where was majority owned by EMC was also listed. So eighty percent of this company that was listed was owned by EMC Dell couldn't afford to buy all that for cash. And so they said, you know, what will give you this piece? The paper called tracking stock in VM ware, and it will reflect our interest in this company VM ware, and it should trade roughly in line with with VM ware. And so this piece of tracking stock which was publicly listed or traded called deviant t was created UNC shareholders got it. And for the last two years. It has traded has gone up quite a bit. The problem is it's always triggered a sharp discount to the pure VM ware stock big del wanted to go public again. And so the way to do that was not a traditional IPO where they just go out and sell shares of Delon people by that in like an under written offering what they wanted to do was take Dell shares a private and then swap it with Devi shareholders who would get the new Dell paper and through that transaction. Dell would again be public company. The problem was how do you actually value DVD, and that has been the fight for the last six months, let's say it's been particularly contentious who are some of the key sort of people fighting. It's interesting TV. Mt. Is like this weird security. VM ware is hard to understand. So not survey. Rising Lee its biggest investors have been hedge fund. So most prominently call icon had a big stake Elliott, the very high profile hedge fund that gets in these kind of fights. Was there a bunch of other kind of brand name twins were involved in the Soza a fight really between for the last six months to throughout the terms of this reverse merger IPO between these big hedge funds, and then Silverlake sedans had the benefit over these last few years of not having to answer to the public markets not having to release quarterly earnings. How's it looking like, it's gonna trait? That's a great question. So part of the fight that's gone on with this VM ware. Tracking stock called Devi MTA has been there's really two issues around it one VM ware. Let's say one hundred and fifty dollars per share company. The tracking stock has traded say around one hundred or one hundred and five so thirty forty percent discount. So the whole of that tracking stock one want to be made whole sort of get a value that approaches at one fifty the other half of the fight in the more complicated. Fight is a big portion of this. Deal is in this del stock which is suddenly going to be public. How much is that worth since it's private there's a big disagreement on how much that is worth. The delta worth quite a bit. The hedge funds have been skeptical. And so that was really the core kind of fight that just got resolved a came up with a clever mechanism to sort that out. But if you look at the actual numbers, and where Dell's going to trade at least initially the Cordell business businesses, not going to trade at a very high multiple. And so Michael Dell who was frustrated five years ago about his valuation is probably going to be frustrated now again, and so the question is do shareholders publisher holders now mutual funds, and the like do they kind of Dopp his vision on how Dell is going to really compete in this new IT market that they've been remade. And they're right up there with Cisco, and Microsoft, and the others or is this going to be thought of as a slow growth business that has this corporate governance problem with private equity firm who still there and Michael Dell who have super voting shares? We're going to take advantage of us. So the real question is now. Hey, the public. They got this deal done our daily at the benefit of the doubt or not. All All right. right. Thank Thank you. you.
