Expanding your business organically - Eli Crane of Bottle Breacher
"My name is eli korean. And i'm the founder and ceo of bottle bottlebuster. We are a veteran owned made in the usa brand operating out of tucson arizona. I started this company in a one car garage in san diego. California with my wife jen. Who's also still my partner. We specialize in personalized man gifts in borrower. Some of your audience might of seen us on the abc hit television. Show shark tank in two thousand fourteen on the veterans day special win. We went on the show. We had about five employees and now we have between thirty five and forty five. Depending on the time of year basically our goal is to build the biggest baddest made in the usa that are known brand in the world. And it's pretty cool because of this last year forbes actually ranks us as the thirteenth in the top twenty five military or veteran owned companies in the united states. So we're getting close in. We're halfway there but we still got a lot of work to do. And so we're excited about the future. And so are you still in san diego now. No we're actually operating at a tucson arizona move there. I was exiting the navy and i was getting out of the military and my wife is actually from tucson and a lot of people that are in small business in california. I know that there's a lot of regulation in california. That's why a lot of small businesses are flocking out of there in droves. And so we were looking for a less regulated climate to start. Our small business in arizona was fit to hit on what you do today kind of where you started from the beginning there but how about before you started the company. How like backtrack into getting out of high school. Kind of your quick from there to where you are today. yeah absolutely. There was nothing quick about my journey. It was filled with a lot of adversity and also a lot of failure. And i think this is something that needs to be talked about. You know routinely and often with the entrepreneurship. I think that failure is probably the biggest lesson in. That's where most of the gold in life really lies. And i think that's what separates a lot of successful entrepreneurs from those that aren't successful. Is that successful. Entrepreneurs learn to look at failure in a completely different light. We don't look at it as something bad and something that we need to stay away from. We look it as just cause of doing business and we'd look at it and we actually welcome it because we know that that's were really gonna find the real lessons and figure out what doesn't work what does work. And so as a matter of fact. When i was getting out of high school i barely graduated from high school. Because honestly i really didn't care about what was going on. My family was getting blown up at the time. My parents were going through a really rough divorce. And i honestly thought that football was gonna be my ticket out and i found out the hard way. That wasn't good enough to really play anywhere. So i started doing a lotta searching took a lot of side jobs and i really wanted to go into the military because from the time i was a little boy i had a heart to serve and i love this country and i wanted to serve this country and so pretty much everybody in my circle that i saw as an adviser advise me to go into if i was going to go into the military to go in as an officer and so they all told me that i needed to go to college so i started taking classes in criminal justice at arizona western college in yuma arizona and then after i finished my associates there i transferred to the university of arizona in studying criminology. But they didn't have that major at the university of arizona. And so i would have had to get put into the business college which i applaud foreign didn't even get into is ironic that his and so. I started taking classes in sociology. Because i found that it was the easiest path to me getting a degree in the military really. Didn't care what my degree was in. They just wanted to know that. I could stick it out for four years and so started studying sociology and then nine eleven happened at the start of my senior year and i actually left college for the navy the very next week to join the seal teams and unfortunately you don't just join the teams you have to try out. And it's it's the most rigorous training in the department of defense. And so i actually made a big mistake and i trained to the bare minimum and as soon as i could do the bare minimums that were required to just get into to get a shot to go to seal training. I actually applied in went down there and joined and you. That's been a good lesson for me in you know in failure because it didn't work out for me. I actually went to seal. Training actually made it through the toughest part assailed training which is called hell week. It's actually front into week four and it's basically live and a half days of staying awake the whole time and just getting your butt kicked is your cold wet and miserable and made it through that week but a week and half later i was dropped from training. I gotta performance drop in. So they sent me out to the navy for two and a half years and that was one of the biggest eye opening lessons in my life. And it's one that i always cherished just because when you go into something. That's that big in that intense with kind of half ass mentality. Those are usually get half ass. Results are usually fail. And it's been so valuable for me moving on just to remember the pain and having to take ownership of that failure because it was one hundred percent my fault and so it's been really good for me moving into other things and i went out to a ship for two and a half years. And then i got an opportunity to come back to seal trainings in two thousand and four made it straight through with class two five six and in mid two thousand five. I became a navy seal and i spent nine. Years is a seal and in my last two years in the navy. I started this company. Bob during that one car garage san diego. While i was an instructor and i don't have a fancy nba. I don't even have a business degree. But what i do have is in my opinion a phd from the school of hard knocks. And i think that's the most important thing that you can have as an entrepreneur as just having a phd in being resilient because as an entrepreneur you will get knocked down every single day. You will run into problem after problem after problem. And if you don't know how to get back up in constantly move forward then you're not going to be business long. Well i mean talking about the transition when you started the company when you're still in the navy what kinda inspired your made. You want to end up doing that. Well it was my wife in two little girls that inspired me to do that honestly. If i didn't have a family at the time. I probably would have got out of the navy taking a breath and traveled around europe for six months or a year. But that wasn't in the cards for me. Because i had responsibilities. I had mouse defeat and bills to pay so i was doing whatever i could to take care of my family and that kind of look like in this is important to talk about to just so the entrepreneurs that are listening to this. Podcast understand the sacrifice that it's gonna take you know. I was working a fulltime job in the navy. If you could even call it. A job is way more of intense career in the navy where i would instruct other seals all day long sometimes late into the night and then i would come home. I would help my wife as much as i could with the kids and then i would go out into the garage late at night. Early in the morning fulfill all the orders for today making all the bottom breaches and my wife she would go to the computer and handle customer service marketing men accounting so in. We did this for two years. There were no weekends. there were no summer vacations. I mean we busted our asses for two years to stand this thing up and even at that point it got crazier because at that point we went on shark tank and that sacrifices so importance in it's also you know we also grew this business organically which is something i love to talk about just because i feel it so if you're able to do it. Some companies are unable to do. But if you're able to do it. I think it's so important that you try and grows organic as possible for as long as possible just for many reasons one. Because it you have to learn the business from the ground up. Nobody's pumping capital into nobody's pumping capital into you and it. You know it. Also if we know that the biggest enemy that we have usually as running out of cash and that's li- businesses fell every single day more commonly than any other reason growing organically pretty much eliminates that. Because if you can't afford something if you don't have the money in your business account for something you don't buy it. It's just that

A Discussion with David's Former Investment Firm
"Welcome back to David Star. Great to be here. Thanks for having me. Yeah we'll works cited. We could we need some help with this podcasting thing and before we do a deep dive, we thought maybe we start out with the effigy year. So first things first, you often reference at Bejesus has not by name but your previous job. So listeners, what did you actually do it E. G. DE MATURE? So I joined Effigy Nineteen Ninety five it was a very small firm at the time only twenty five employees and then I was there seventeen years left in two thousand twelve and at twenty five person firm We pretty much did everything everybody did everything? So I was an analyst consultant. Research then I became a partner in nineteen, ninety eight eventually was on our effigy executive committee for many years I co founded what became effigies Osceola effort at the time it was called managed portfolios, and so I oversaw portfolios and then when I left I was. Co leading the research group is chief investment strategist and chief portfolio strategist. So it was it was a great. Have Very fond memories of a years at effigy and learned to bunch. He is you even prior to your came up we were. Looking at a research report and I said, well, how does that researcher Borno Greg is so old it David Stein road like oh boy. Update that one exactly a what are some of your favorite memories are lessons learned from your time at you? As a young firm at the. Twenty five employees there's always been very low turnover both from co workers, partners and clients, and so it's just it's those years of being with colleagues and clients and the trust that you. You have in in your fellow co workers and that that's one thing I miss about not being with a firm is just the trust you have in your fellow partners. What learn was just we were all curious. And we were all trying to figure out how invest markets work, navigate, increasingly complex capital markets, and so I I really liked the constant change and that's that's one reason I got into investing instead of having to move to the next job all the time. Everything else was moving around us in terms of how markets revolving and so that that was great and the big takeaway from that is as you know, you learn humility as an investor and and the reality is no one really knows what's going to happen. I thought when I was an advisor that I had to know that like people were paying me to predict the future and you realize that you can actually manage assets an allocate assets without having perfect foresight. There's ways to manage risk and to do that and make decisions and just recognize that we don't know and the humility that comes from that longer you invest. Great there's definitely a difference between risk and uncertainty, and sometimes you you just have to embrace the the uncertainty and I thought that was that was very well said I certainly recognized I know a lot less than that I, thought I, did each year. I know less. Is a great a great mark I remember the day we're we're at A. Orders RETREA. I'm just GonNa retire and your whole life David. You're you're too young to retire like. See Retire and do what you did immediately. Turn podcasting you retire what happens next. Well now. So I left in two thousand twelve and I launched the podcast in two thousand, fourteen I I spent a couple years writing about investing I was a number of. Businesses. I started. Shut Down Because I. Was Afraid Somebody would hire me I had been investment advisers for so long I just I loved investing I just couldn't find. The way that wanted to continue to do it without. So I didn't have to manage assets and have that that Wade of that fiduciary responsibility i. was a guest on a podcast in two thousand fourteen realized that that was kind of fun because what I missed about. Effigy was an opportunity to teach to go to. An endowment, Investment Committee and to just talk about investing and talking about our latest research and so. After that guest appearance few weeks later, experimental launch a podcast though structured kind of like an investment committee just not do interviews do more a solo show twenty-five minutes talking about money the economy investing and at the time. Everyone, was more people were getting smartphones, they had data plans, and so I saw a shift. And podcasting timing turned out to be very good. As, there were not really that many investing podcasts. At the time and so that that's what I've been doing since. So it's been six over six years now.

They've been able to keep their thirty five employees on payroll but he says they may not be able to continue paying salaries and rent without getting money from the government so Chavez wanted to learn more about how the rest of the nightclub industry is faring. Well it's no surprise. Nightclubs are built for crowds. And so they're suffering so too. Is Everyone who serves them from DJ to bartenders? Bouncers to liquor suppliers Las Vegas. The center of the nightclub. World has been hit especially hard in late March jewel nightclub the wet Republican. Mgm Grand and the Omnia nightclub at caesars palace. Shut down the clubs. Parent company laid off. Its sixteen hundred. Employees elsewhere to the picture is far from pretty but even when forced to stay inside some partygoers will not be kept down so some club promoters have started zoom based nightclubs that is clubs that exist only virtually hunt around and you'll find virtual piano bars slow jams solo shows and full on dance parties. Some are doing this for free. Others are requesting donations the savviest of all or charging real world entrance fees which hundreds of people are happily paying. The biggest appears to be one called club. Quarantine or club q started by four friends in Toronto. It caters to the LGBTQ CROWD. Only a month old. It's instagram feed already boasts some forty nine thousand followers in that. Short time club. Q has earned a reputation as the place to be zooms hottest club. The cut called it. The club which takes donations hosts a virtual party every night from nine pm to midnight eastern as a real world club club cues parties are led by. Dj's spinning music. Visitors often dress up an exotic homemade club fashion ranging from drag queen dressed silk robes with a dog collars the cut reports. Sometimes they wear nothing at all visitors. Bring the alcohol and the willingness to dance in their living rooms and then there's the flirting loads of it. That's arguably safer at a distance although maybe not as much fun sure club q started because of the corona virus in virtual clubs are still. Pale imitations of the real thing but founder. Andreas Sierra told Bloomberg that he believes online nightclubs actually have an advantage over physical ones. They're more inclusive he claims on zoom.

The PPP Loan Disastrous Result
"I want to talk right now about something. That has just absolutely fallen. Apart and that is assistance to small businesses that many of which are just days or weeks away from shutting down permanently and it was the intent of Congress weeks ago to get relief to those small businesses and a lot has gone wrong. There's a new briefing right now on the SBA website at SBA dot Gov that for the direct lending program called the idol a economic injury disaster loans for Corona virus. They're not taking any applications reason. They ran out of money. They ran out of money pretty much the second day the program was available and started trying to ration money. That didn't work. So they're just flat out out of money for small businesses then the payroll program that launched with great hope that was going to help businesses from very very small ones up to businesses. That a lot of measurements would say mid size with five hundred employees that this program has been a complete fail because of the attitude of the banks how they've handled the program and this is atrocious. And when I referred the attitude of the banks I'm overwhelmingly referring to the problems that have existed with the large big four giant monster megabanks and then the next tier down with her known as super regional banks that listen to this stat was compiled by Marketwatch so ninety percent approximately of small businesses companies that employ less than twenty people nineteen or less and they overwhelmingly have been pushed away and rejected by the banks attempting to apply for the Payroll Protection Program. In fact based on what Market Watch has been able to figure out almost one hundred percent of the three hundred forty nine billion that is basically spoken four now awaiting an allocation of more money from Congress went to one per cent of small businesses. Those that employ between one hundred and five hundred employees. Now think about that. Ninety nine percent of businesses employ less than that ninety percent approximately employ nineteen people or less and they have been shut out overwhelmingly from this lending program by the giant monster megabanks and the super regionals that account for perhaps eighty percent of banking market share in the country why because the big businesses of the small the ones that employ one hundred five hundred people tend to have very solid relationships with these super regional banks and the four giant monster. Maga's they have a personal banker. People know who they are at the bank more or less and they came first in line and with many banks the only on line for this money. The small number of community banks around the country have tried heroically to get lending to businesses of less than one hundred people but they have not been able to get enough loans processed through the SBA system to get any significant share of the money when Congress eventually reaches a deal on this. The banks must be required as part of additional funding to no longer discriminate against businesses based on their size. The banks. Just don't WanNa be bothered with a small restaurant a small retail store a small business of any kind because it's just not their big. Well let me tell you something. Congress needs to require that it's their thing and get this relief to smaller small businesses. And not just the biggest of the category that was considered to be small business. A hundred to five hundred people in addition you should know that now nine traditional nine banks are in this process. Pay Pal is one Cabbages another KABC. Be Number of small business lenders. That are not banks are either already in the program or soon will be and they are not turning their noses up at you if you have three employees or fourteen. Employees are twenty five employees and shame. Shame shame on the banks that we saved during the banking scandals that led to the financial crisis in the great recession that we gave them two and a half trillion dollars and basically nobody went to prison for all the criminal behavior and now they are turning their backs on main street in the United States. This is hideous and unacceptable behavior by the

You got fortune five hundred companies hiring you you said you got ninety five employees already. You don't even know who is in the office anymore. Fast success. You know, I I will say unequivocally my younger brother, Ryan identified the influence or space in an amazing way. And he got together with a technical team put together an amazing platform. I had my hand in it and the sense of my own expertise, which was PR and marketing I had a PR company for ten years called American rebel PR lifestyle and fashion PR for a wide variety of brands everybody from dear foam slippers to John Deere tractors we did some of their clothing stopped. Fender guitars, I had some crazy experiences during that time. I created a clothing line with Scott Weiland, the lead singer pilots who recently passed which was an amazing experience because that was like my childhood idol growing up. So to get to actually said a fashion shows with him, and then actually curate our own passion shows and fly around the country, and and do rock show slash fashion. Shows was like the coolest thing in the world to me during that time. I also got to be a part of a television show with decide or twisted sister. I was going to an MTV show. Him and his son. His son was starring on a rock, the cradle that was all about young children of celebrities wanting to be Rockstars themselves. And every time we would go we would go out to dinner afterwards. And I would listen to them talk about how they were supposed to be the next Osborne's. And that things just didn't work out for them and me and a friend had together. More like, you know, I think we could try to make this work. And so we came up with a treatment. We pitched it to a production company and ended up getting sold and my first ever attempt at writing a television show ended up on national television production credit out of that. So that was a really cool experience. And it was it was completely divergent from what I was doing at the time. But I think all of these relationships and the PR and marketing industries opened up amazing and crazy doors for me to leverage those now, exactly. And so I did that promise ten years and with a crash into. Thousand eight marketing and PR became a very difficult thing to do as a standalone business, and I don't even have money to pay the bills. Marketing which is the one thing they should be doing exactly and people just don't realize that sometimes when I started the company and in Ohio six I was getting ten thousand dollar retainers from clients or they're giving me money every month just to get them publicity. And then two thousand eight comes around and people are like, oh, what can you do for like two or three thousand and they'd actually expect you to do more than what you were doing for dinner. I can't do much more for you. So after joined that for a long time, I saw sort of a change happening in the marketing and PR industry and a lot of it was central centered around social media. And so I saw what my brother was doing. And it was really exciting. And I came to him with an idea to kind of social to life through an event series. We called the influential house, and so we did our first one in twenty fourteen at Coachella, and this was very much an infancy state of the social media landscape, and because of that we were able to attract all of the biggest stars of social media. In fact, there was a sixteen minutes piece that aired about a month ago about the top social influencers all of them were out our first, which is absolutely wild.
