Daryl Morey on the Sports Analytics Revolution

"So me pawing at this sad window like a hidden aside daryl. I do want to explain the monster. You've created here because the mit sloan sports analytics conference is very well known inside our industry but it is far less stone outside of it. And you and your co founder. Jessica gelman got it going fifteen years ago. Basically in the spirit of moneyball and the spirit of what someone like bill. James did in exploiting data defined undervalued players and strategies and every year you bring together researchers and sacred magicians and wants but now you also get all of these powerbrokers to somehow agreed to be on panels. And i'm talking about owners and athletes and coaches and executives and world leaders like barack obama who was the keynote speaker. One year recently. So i'm just curious first off what sort of thing is stuck in your mind after you wrapped up the conference. Last week. I mean this year. I jumped on the nfc panel actually learned a lot because we had the like the head of mba. Top shots ahead of so rare mark. Cuban who has more More free time than than us to to focus on this and i think teams are obviously the. Nba is out front at the sports top shop.

Volkswagen's Name Change Joke Didn't Land

"From brown and business wars daily on this monday april twelfth. Happy started the week. Everyone you know. Who's been having a tough april volkswagen matsue and as you may have that's mostly because they started the month with an april fools joke that fell flatter than a busted tire is started in the last days of march when the automaker quote accidentally unquote released a very serious sounding statement announcing that they'd be changing their name to volts wagon that's volts as in electricity. Now volkswagen's id for is the company's only electric model in the us market so far but the company is planning to build more and said that all future electric models would come emblazoned with their new name volts wagon now in eighty-three rolled company. Suddenly changing. Its moniker is suspicious right. But the name change announcement was so deadpan that it got picked up by the likes of cnbc. The bbc and the verge and all that publicity had an impact on the company's stocks. Volkswagen stock prices rose nearly five percent on the day the statement was released the ap reported but only hours later. A company spokesman confirmed that the name change was an early april. Fool's joke a joke. I should say that didn't quite land sea. Volkswagen isn't exactly held up as a model of corporate transparency. You may remember that in two thousand fifteen. The company installed deceptive software in its vehicles to cheat on government emissions tests that move launched a five-year fiasco. That cost volkswagen thirty. Five billion dollars led to the recall of millions of vehicles so volkswagen's been trying to dust off. Its image since then which makes this joke. Well puzzling to say the least and the us securities and exchange commission doesn't seem to have that much of a sense of humor. Manipulating the stock market is of course illegal. An even though it's not certain that manipulation was the intent behind volkswagen statement. The joke certainly swelled stock prices which could bring regulators knocking. But there's another automaker who's been there done that and is thriving that would be tesla which has in the past straight up to see the public in two thousand eighteen founder elon. Musk tweeted that. He had the funding to take tesla. Private stock prices surged ten percent. But it was later revealed that actually there was no such funding. Musket has company each over twenty million dollars in penalties to the sec. But today it seems like things are working out for tesla their social media the spotlight and their electric models are in last month. Wall street journal columnist dan. Neil took volkswagen the new. Id four for a spin and said tesla has nothing to worry about the id. Four is five years behind the comparable tesla you'll wrote and the engineering betrays a premature rush to market harsh words for volkswagen. Which of course has been angling of late to compete directly with tesla. Both automakers plan to open new european factories for their electric vehicles and volkswagen group

How I Built This

Interview With Ethan Diamond Of Bandcamp

"And today my conversation with ethan diamond the ceo and co founder of band camp band camp describes itself as an online record store and music community. Any band or musician can post their music on the site sell it and also offer merchandise and tickets for live performances and the artists keep more than eighty percent of the profit band. Camp had been steadily growing since its launch in two thousand seven but last year was its biggest yet. Traffic to the site surged as concerts and festivals. Mostly shut down. You know as you said. We're essentially an online record store and use a community where fans connect with artists and directly. Support them and about half. The business is physical record. So vinyl cassettes cds. A lot of t-shirts as well and then half the business is a digital music. So people buying Digital and digital tracks directly from the artist and we also recently launched live streaming. So now tickets are part of it as well but You know. I would say that the thing that really sets us apart is that we just built the whole company and the welfare of the artist. So we don't we don't sell advertising. We don't really focus on subscriptions. We just help. Artists sell their music. And then we take a small revenue share on every sale. So what to say is that we only make money. If artists make a lot more money and sort of alignment of interest that we have built into our business model is really just everything about i would were. I would say an artist. I music company and something like eighty. Five percent on average of the revenue goes directly to the artist right. Yeah it's it ends up being There's payment processing fees Fee so on our and it varies by transactions is comes out to about eighty two percents that goes directly to the to the artist and then we pay that out every it usually takes about twenty four to forty eight hours. I've heard it described a little bit like esi for independent music. Is that a fair comparison. Totally yeah i and which i take is a complimentary.

"Right right so today I have y'all and he's another founder in the atler accelerator slash incubates Ormat Having talked much about that on this podcast but I guess we'll go into it now so yeah thanks for joining the podcast exciting to be yeah yeah this is cool because we I'd like to learn more about like I know what you come from I know what your interests are what kind of businesses are you trying to build here okay so I think it hard the type of business I'm trying to build is one that is very people centric and the purpose of the business is to either elevate communities that are overlooked more help people who aren't compromising situations just like deliver results that very directly influence people's livelihood their job prospects or whatever they're working on their mental health like anything that I can do to make people's lives specifically gutter Something that I mentioned working on and so it's kind of your typical starter founders like I'm going to be to be Saas product I'm GonNa sell it and that isn't to say that I'm not going to build a BBC response as a result of the larger thing that I'm trying to work on I think the big thing that drives me and has always driven me is people really making direct impact on the lives of people and not just organizations which presented some challenges but is something I'm excited about figuring yeah that's cool so I remember when you does your founder intro talked about being from Ghana and said he wanted to I don't know if you want to create something that helps people backing you wanted to give doc somehow is is that something that you're still focusing on an interested in doing or is that something you want to build activate your main company yeah that's a good question I think it's we more so the second thing that you said where I may be more down the line type of thing I'm trying to work on on a big thing for me is that I don't want to I don't want to start a company press like I don't want to do something that on on its face looks great but when it comes down to the details of how it actually works it's not actually that effective faces significant barriers doesn't actually and I think the more time that I spent reading ideas in this incubator the more I started to see that a lot of my lofty ideas and goals that I want to accomplish and gone on require like a d mount of either I don't know commitment to living never really long time or like deep amount of experience in like a huge network within the system and like as much as I love to be doing it myself as a person who is firmly rooted in the US right now it's like very difficult for me to do so you know my heart goes out to like you know the communities that I'm from and I see myself as almost like an ambassador for what type of person linked I can do and I still get back send money back to my family members donates organizations like I do these things but I think where that actually intersects with my business needs I think is going to be more of a down the line right now but asked me again tomorrow and have you have you found anything you're interested in doing on it you talk about the person system and marketplaces for consultants Have you like if you had to choose one which would be like the one you'd be passionate more passion Wa so the truth This is surprise me but I I think I'm most interested in the personal systems a service concept because the more research I into it them more deep but I see that the need is so for listeners the basic idea is you know the future of work is going to be very different than what it used to be right and everyone's thinking about houses going to change house automation GonNa Phase People's jobs what are we going to do with humans universal income Andrew Yang all that stuff and I think what people are really forgetting is they're trying to look at the industry and saying how can we ship people into industries that are maybe not going to be affected and thinking how can.

"And then there was one again not even sure what happened or how it happened I know how it happened but I guess I'm not sure where things went wrong but he goes so a couple of weeks ago I put out an episode about Finding clovinger finally for Santa Mine something else called reload and just like that back to square one Noko founder so he decided to part ways it was best that we didn't do business together anymore for the sake of our friendship I don't know man to go to the whole story I guess it goes back to around little bit after we still Arctic I'm not a designer I can't design anything from scratch like illustrations but oh I think I'm decent at building user interface I guess you could say maybe slapping things together and making it look okay but I enjoy doing you X. Y. whatever call it user interface US experience and I learned as I go every action they do on an APP opens another screen that's more to work on you other interface to work on or screen to work on I like that but I think what my my co-founder wanted to build an I do too but it's just not feasible at the moment because I don't we don't have the money to pay designer but he wanted to have a the best looking product out there which the I'm I'm with that but it's just right now it was just me and him all right now is this me like I think we should work together on things and make mistakes and learn and have fun with it and just put something out there what I did want to pay for was A freelancer engineer developer to help them with any coding that he needed to do like front end because he was back in guy likes likes to work more on the back end but anything he had he needed a to help on that could free up to do more important things than we I couple occasions I said listen if you don't trust me are have faith in me even we shouldn't be in the other and I guess at the end you know the last time I said that he said enough if we're talking about these things now we don't have any pain users or employees are funding now than what's it gonna be like you know months or years later wished I said is that I think we should these are minor things and we should get them out now but as any relationship there's always gonna be disagreements is never going to be perfect but he's a real cool dude he's is really smart and it's a shame that we couldn't keep working together but the show goes on so beg square one co founder and I think.

"Still yet to be made that's strictly for producers and more so for independent producers because making been making shit you know they're making music in they're trying to get out there but the only music that's being really pushed hard on spotify the platforms are the big artists little artists has to promote himself on instagram on social media facebook twitter everything all him or herself breath and there's no company out there really supporting the house music independent Dj are slash producer so I felt like like maybe we should try to do something and that's when Ed was like so let's build it near because it's not only that but the events that we have over big companies that were agile they give something doesn't work I mean you can talk to us yes like you're not going to be until I the main CEO you know spotify account manager spotify probably getting technical support you're lucky if they're even in your area and they understand what you've been talking about so we have that advantage right like we Kebab and we you know we could dodge things we could we could do crazy the ideas that nobody's ever done because we I mean we're trying to push boundaries were we are being creative in our own I'm nick base right but we're using our creativity to empower other artists yes so where in the sense artists of course artists are is different from there but we're GONNA tag team and try like that we're we're we're literally teaming up with producers mhm an artist that just giving an empowering them because assembling a team together and everybody has their gift and this was like let's come together and make something great is these big juggernauts men that I don't feel like they're going to go anywhere no of course you know what I mean but definitely there's an opportunity to space is definitely opportunity there to do something great and impactful and we could yeah I think could make a lot of change and that yeah and I think if we can be those people just a spark change spark conversation once we started doing different model that empowers artists and seeing now that the power of paradigm is going to shift now back to the artist yeah where it's never been before where it's always been my you know these labels the big companies and things of that nature then now we can he was targeting better music is we're giving more access exactly yeah everyone right now music is GonNa get pushed to its limits that's right 'cause now going back to disability of information and things of that nature now we're GonNa make it more accessible yeah you're not I mean it's like people are GonNa want try more yeah I mean try harder in the main so I'd have people people are probably thinking way rate end to reload and they're probably thinking oh you can only focus on one thing if you want to really build it because that's what everybody says if you have a startup the product focused on that one thing and do it right you know you can't do two things but I don't know rules to this right but psychologists and they're both creating content pushing it out on the platforms so to an audience to northern so it's kind of the same you know you're the one the builder but it's kind of the same back in you know so why not were distributing clash and why not we do not try you know I think that's that's why I said to you you know when I when I asked you I was like hey why don't we do this together no settlement as well because it just would be silly and harder on me to have two different co-founders and it just be it just made sense let's just do this together you know we're going to do one thing I got this other thing let's just make it happen together you know and it's Kinda the same mm-hmm theory was just disturbing not only that man but I like working multiple things going back to creative it's kind of like dude I like I'd like getting pigeonholed into anything that's just like one dimensional man because what happens if we're working on one thing right for reload and olives how can we use this for Santa Mind yeah vice versa yeah right it's Kinda like interdisciplinary earning it kind of helps to in like building the product that's what it is it's interdisciplinary earning it's like mixing disciplines together like what happens if we figured out something that nobody's like for instance I'm just thinking right now let's up all right so now it could be an algorithm that literally just play the right music for you for the mood that you're in yet you know what I mean I know exactly I've thought of that yes so the whole thing is is like music is therapy yeah it's a different form of you know what I mean I I love listening to music it changes it literally changes something in your vibe how many is the modern terminate with the youth divide yeah yes they literally speaks to your to a different part of your consciousness yeah different genres make you feel different things young man so that's why they're they're wondering this right one is through music instrumentation electronic instruments the other ones verbal. You're not I mean but I remember to tell you I wanna get into using therapy yet one hundred percent so it's it's literally so it just it's offering together and I thought it would be great if we just did awesome together and I'm glad and I think another thing that you're going to do is you're going to inspire a lot of kids And even older older men and women to maybe Puerto Rican Puerto Rican known for being you know computer scientists like they don't really do that thing you know I mean a lot of minorities really have given the opportunity like you know what I'm saying they were just literally what we technically equal rights one was that pass that was only like a early years ago like the first generation of my favorites have really experienced that freedom right so it's like we're finally given Oh you know technically legally some type of equality so it's kind of like which is another thing right being pioneers right and and being that beacon of light and saying other people if I did it you can also do but if you feel like you need help you can reach out to me because I did actually right so it's Kinda like everybody's is helping each other on black there's video of somebody trying to save trying to save a dog or something from a river and they nobody had rope right so all yes they did a human wrote like everybody just grabbed one one person was the anchor on land and then everybody just hold onto each other yeah and lift each other up and it's as what we need to do is needed we need each other and people you know what I mean like that's world here for a short period of time while we here at least while I'm here I would like to create I would like to do something impactful and if I can help anybody I mean that's more rewarding than anything else right you know what I mean so that's dilute goes beyond material that goes I mean that is thing is what our real purpose is here but that's another we talk about that another time but yeah I think giving back is amazing you know what I mean that's that's that's the reward it feels good man and I want I want people who you know if there's anyone listening to this I want them to feel comfortable in reaching out and if they have I'm not an expert but if they have any questions you know whatever I've been through I could I can help out and yeah it feels great man and you know I'm Puerto Rican too so I remember when I met you like a million Puerto Rico Puerto Rican that's computers computers like why I've never never met one so I thought it was really cool and now that's another thing we got an aside you know like I don't think there's any other founding team that's cool us either I don't think so I don't think there's another team cooler than US man oh man I hope there's other people out there uh-huh.

converter box now you can get ten eighty p Channel Two for all of them all of them aged equality missing the news so you see that's so you were has not little engineer before you to even thought about going to school for you WanNa go to be a computer engineer that's crazy computer science computer science computer science decide Oh yea not not a not a boot camp four years of university to get a degree computer science one hundred percent computer scientists yeah but I I can't yeah but that's not just me it all started when my dad though I don't know because my dad because all right so I'm Puerto Rican so I don't know if it's known throughout the interwebs that international but we like hug and sound systems so Oh I you know I know that we liked loud music we can't just play regular like we have a five hundred dollar car but we'll put two thousand is with the speakers and a radio and they're gonNA back to make sure everybody knows the mix were playing in our web you like it you may not love it but is what we're going to listen to it because we spend a lot of money on this boy yeah so basically a party so boom so my dad it comes from Puerto Rico the land of opportunity starts working and then he has money so he's like okay let me get my speaker is on you know what I mean so he would speak as he will get sound equipment he would get so back in the day you had you had to get the whole sound system you had to get the the amplifier this guy and if you had a CD player with the dual take that was on the boom amplifier would go like sometimes in the passenger side on the side of non talking about from the home all yes it was yeah took up the whole wall it was like you had to buy a house big enough or an apartment big enough dedicated a whole of this house five feet with the with the speakers that are five feet tall skinny so it's ironic though because those systems were actually better than what we have now but I don't want to really get into that too amazing sound systems amazing and there were crude but it's like their way better like it was bigger because of amplification and obviously electron components have gotten smaller Dong but yeah he would buy this equipment but him being from Puerto Rico and being here on for a couple of years I'm a little kid he would just open the box and throw me the manual okay so I'm over here like I got this thing it looks like something from outer space is Dino Miss and it looks like expensive yeah Lemme mess this up yeah so I was the one that had to go through the instructions because you don't want my my mom is definitely not messing with that she molly asking why is this shit in this house yeah so that was basically a VCR's remember VCR VCR's deeply remember do you remember the little the little VCR reminders it was all yeah yeah one hundred because if you're going to blockbuster take charge you like please Rwanda Tate returned charge you a fee like five bucks or something so they were winder paid for eh to avoid avoid the penalties yeah man you need it to Rwanda how you how it would it would be a wild for something to rewind needless to say you know fifteen minutes whatever you know what I mean so it's like a great and then hold up it was revolutionary when you had the VCR that once you're the end it automatically rewind Oh yeah dude that was the also you didn't even have to get up you didn't have to hit inject I know and put it in the other thing you just got the one unit thousand luxury remember now that that also reminds me of remember normal controls for the TV where you to actually get up and change the channel you remember that I mean I think I was lucky so you add remotes cable like we have the cave like the legit cable the cable it it was the broke into box it was nine I was the Freedom Act box was freedom freedom freedom hacked the box you act box you know what I'm saying so that's basically was it was like one gay and so you don't have to worry about none of that stuff but remember the guy that remember the Knob you don't WanNa mess that that was the only way to do it yeah I remember.

"I'm back everybody was up it's been a while since I put another podcasts out there I want to do things consistently but a here comes the excuses just had a lot going on in just everyday life and yeah I guess I over think it and I put it he still winging it but have a couple of things on this podcast that I wanna talk about but I if you haven't download the APP please go down the APP it's available for IOS is cold Santa Mine S. A. N. O. M. I N. D. Santo Mine and just give me your thoughts ideas feedback it's still pretty still pretty barebones simple MVP but the whole point of it to to get the content out there and to see people listen and people are people are listening check those numbers every day and I think we're about to go into being able to build more features and products so yeah that's coming soon but we'll see we'll see what happens but yeah I still been working on it I hate I hate to admit it but as far as the product yeah guess we are Zombie mode which is is the worst multibillion having build any features and just been out there with the same with the same product and just been focusing on getting content out there for now which which is the most important part but there needs to be an experience on the APP there needs to be a couple more features than like to add for now an you know if we want to be a technology quotes startup or at least product than We need to work on that but yeah so besides being Zombie mode where I think into health is going I I mean I don't WanNa say where it's going but because there's a lot of things going on in mental health out a lot more people are talking about it from a hot topic but there's there's still there's still a stigma I wouldn't say stigma is the number one reason that people don't seek help and it isn't the number one reason the number one reason people don't seek help AK therapy because of the cost and that's that's sad I don't think unless the government or insurance companies pay therapists and psychologists their full rates I don't think it's ever going to be cheaper and when I say when I say cheaper I'm talking about face to face one on one therapy in an office setting that's not going to be cheaper you know reality is the therapists and psychologists they go to school for a long time it's not easy and they need to be paid for their time so I'm glad that there are a lot of other ways that people can work on their mental health but when I say where I think mental health is going I think because we have a lot of APPS and you know meditation and there's all these other ways of self care and taking care of your mental health I I I think preventative is debased because get to prevent the onset of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety because nobody has ever taught us to you know Armenta health work on on mental health or do any sort of preventative care for mental health when we were kids growing up and I think they're starting to do that a now but it's taken a lot of initiative from individuals like teachers they're Biz everyday people and like me that talk about it put out podcasts work on products for it but I think Oh people with serious mental health illness they need you know to see a therapist to see a clinical psychologist psychiatrist but as far as just everyday general anxiety and depression and people that they might think they're depressed but there not really depressed there's just you know in a bad place in their life or you know a lot of things been going wrong and throughout the roller coaster of life emotions I think there are still ways for those people to management to health You know using a lot of the self care tips that are out there are or doing whatever you like to do whatever they enjoy doing whatever it takes their mind off things but another thing is is asking yourself the hard questions and answering them honestly listening to your body and you know focusing on what's on your body's telling you and and then just push through and talk to people right Journal every morning Do something like an audio an audio journal where you talk into voice memos and you just just let your let let words right and just get everything out sometimes it's not enough to to write it down or sometimes people don't like to write so talk it out just put it hit record and just let go or if you're in the shower talk to yourself and when I say talk I mean verbally not in in your head because there's a there's a big difference they're just talk it out when there's some there's something powerful about just letting it go from your you're from your head and listening to yourself talk and just putting it out there I know I'm going off in Tangents but you know I just wanted to see talk about you know mental health and this helps solo founders too because this is what gave me the idea when when I'm out running obviously I don't talk out loud because people just think I'm crazy but I talked to myself inside my head all the time when I'm running and I I've been running semi consistently for it'll be two years in June and I see highness I've kind of seen that I kind of on my own on my own therapists because I'm talking to myself and I'm asking questions uh-huh giving myself ideas I'm giving myself advice and I'm trying to figure out issues and problems and come up with solutions for myself and you know anything going on in my life which includes building sat on mine and you know trying to build this product to help others so although well I'm not speaking it out this kind of like a mental inner chatter that's been helping me and it's kind of weird I mean it also helps to that you know I read about psychology and I talked to therapist so a lot of the things I've learned I'm just repeating in my head and just figuring things out on my own and I I kind of enjoy that challenge and I don't know it's part of growing but as a solo founder especially if you're alone most of the time I think that's great I mean you know try it go run see what happens if you don't like it you can do other things just the key here is do whatever works for you whatever makes you happy and whatever you think is helping if you see results but yeah moving board with Santa Wine I was worried about you know building the right things for people and just just worry about what people are thinking and I just went back to the basics is listen it's it's about helping people with content you know I'll listen to feedback if it makes sense you know we'll put it into the product if it doesn't we're going to keep going the way that we wanted to go mission follow the mission and follow intuition and you know back to basics to why started this because I started for one reason and that's the only reason if people don't don't want to join or don't like the APP or it can be this or that you know there are other apps you can get onto do those specific things and there are other ways you can do whatever you do it is you wanna do but yeah after going back to the mission it just makes it so much easier and way less stressful on myself suggest focused on why why why why why why why we're doing this and I've just come to revelation you know when I first started I heard everyone saying you know focus these are focused tunnel vision on that Y and block out the chatter follow the data and just go with what the data saying if you have to if something's not going wrong if something's not going right the data's going to tell you fix it it rate and fix it and see what starts right but if everything's going right and it's going right based upon your y than just a stand that seeing that lane I can't stress enough we listened to many people there's so much information out there you know there are a lot of their VC's their aims Dell's there are other founders their soup assessment what works you you're welcome to to read it all you do learn about things but it's just simple men it's really simple focus on the why follow the data and if it's working continue that way that's it doing anything else you just going to you just go nuts nuts in your head and another thing is that there's another point I wanted to make about but you know the truth is a lot of people don't know what they want or especially what's going to work if they do what you feel is right and do what you want and again follow the data but give people something news you know different activities and they think that feature would would be perfect on your APP because then they would love to use it I think it's cooler and it's a a better explain if you give something if you give people something different and that excites them that wiles them and that's the hard part but it's fun that's all that stuff out so yep this was a little bit about Samba Mode Mental Health and where I think you know Santa Mine should go or where it's at now and you know you should do when you're building a product I'm not an expert this is just little things that I've thought about it and things I've learned along the way and hopefully it helps somebody or are hopefully you hear this and you know what I'm doing is cool and you WanNa meet and you WANNA help out join the team that would be great right now it's just me and might be one of the person pretty soon we'll see but some you're more strategic but it's been digital content digital it just takes up a lot of time and I love doing but it's hard to do all by myself and so I'm looking for somebody that's that's interested in digital marketing when I say to the market I mean across instagram facebook twitter Lincoln and somebody that loves creating content love creating good headlines or good copy nothing of that Corny Witty Shit that's a lot of people do now on just I don't like it to be honest but cool but the copy I like copy to be more creative than witty something that makes people think I think you have to be into you know more than anything mental health wellness mental wellness wellness and strengthening your mind you gotta be.

"Guess who's back your nose back because you are you clicked on the podcast and it's been a couple of weeks in heaven Dropped an episode maybe because I had nothing to talk about nothing was really going on this is going to sound terrible here right now because I am getting ready to go to work yes bartend at a nice upscale Japanese restaurant I used to bartend years ago and I decide I did hey instead of you know just try to look for a full time position because gotta make money while you're building something way trying to pull the because Santa Mine is not bringing in any revenue or money in my pocket we're not charging anything yet but so I thought Oh shit what am I go back to bartending so did just that and I forgot how much fun you get to meet different people fifth grade the place that I'm bartend at is called Dodie it's carmine street downtown Manhattan what's it called it's not so he's I think he's back but anyway so always was a slow month for Santa Mine it was the slowest month for forgetting on any therapists on the platform I think I only put up two or three pieces of content and I choked up to August being the slowest months of the year for everybody because the last month of the MAR people on vacation everybody's checked out at work and nobody's going to be thinking about really recording audio content for for Santa Monica at least not yet because everybody was still posted on facebook twitter instagram so they seem to be doing all right which is good for them but anyway so a couple of things happened last month I well everybody that apply got into Y combinator start school it's not the y combinator a celery later with a provide funding but this is the start of school that S- run by Y combinator alumni and who partners at y combinator but for me the only difference is actually getting funding at the Y.. combinator celebrator and meeting investors. VC's because I mean the content the lectures that they've been putting up have been amazing and one thing to me that was that stood out that ever since I launched Santa Mine January seventeenth of two thousand eighteen I've been working to get users and get contributors licensed services that causes and I just been catching them however I can you know and social media being on podcast engaging people on twitter linked in writing me podcasting anyway possible I can to get you to attract users on groups on facebook and I thought that you know I was like Oh man what's what see what's the best to do this because I'm growth is good but it's it's slow I wanted to be a lot faster and and yesterday there were two lectures about building products getting more product market fit and there was an ask me anything with it the partners that Y C and he was also I think he was head of Grove at Airbnb and everything that he's nope all the questions that he answered were mostly around growth and a lot of them were around BTC which is business is consumer ABS- or companies and he said there's no magic formula it's basically doing everything that I've been doing already you know just going out there and agent with TV using every every site every tool imaginable that you can track those first users because it's hard to get massive growth until you have product market fit you know product market fit is actually something that people actually want to use need and and and also something that they're using I guess every day and can't can't step away from like instagram for example facebook or twitter their way past product market fit you know people millions and billions of people use these products everyday and that's where I wanNA get Santa mine the way the product is now I know that it's not you know at product market fit and I knew it wasn't going to be a part of market because there's still a couple little features that are needed for both users and contribute to actually want to use it more often but I'm excited that everything I've been doing today is actually the right thing and I've been thinking that in the right spot the founder of Whibley to talk on product market fit and growth and when they launched they didn't get product market fit until about eighteen to twenty four months after they launched and their grass look the same as mine up and down up and down not much growth but you know everybody has been saying you know all these talks and the C O only side and I will continue to do what I've been doing which is every social media tool available to man and posting an engaging with people anywhere I can up to even on the street and and you know meditation and Mindfulness but there's a book that I've that I've had here that I've been wanting to actually read because I only read maybe about one two three chapters probably mid August and I started really reading it every day and the book is called Mindfulness I'll I'll put the why you're feeling that way what makes you feel that way but not shying away from your feelings.

"What's up everybody I'm back I was away for two weeks not because I'm lazy just because I had nothing to really put out and I was also way for a couple of days for a wedding so outside of the country and as soon as Shen not really have to think about much until two days before I was coming back I guess subconsciously mine new you know I was getting back into the stress to work mode and I started getting really really just and the breathing again that that shall oh breathing's happening but when I got back I started managing it with running so I've been running for the past year and I used to run in high school and I used to run in college of on my own and it was mostly because try now for baseball teams and just having been on Jim Beam in gym and playing some baseball in the summer so you have to run a lot so I actually enjoyed running so last year I got back into it so I could get back into shape and got back into shape got good stamina back but now I'm running for Stamina and speed so back in high school when I was sixteen seventeen ran a mile and five minutes and that's pretty fast so last year when I started running my first mile was about somewhere between twelve and fourteen and a half minutes I I don't remember probably on the higher end forty minutes but I I was in shock and not in shocked at how how shape I was so thirteen months later my fastest mile to date has been seven minutes and seventeen seconds and that was yesterday so I've been pushing myself every day too beat to beat the fast time Monday I got back to running and I did seven thirty seven minutes and thirty seconds yesterday I did seventeen seven minutes and seventeen seconds today tried to beat that but wasn't happening first mile Iran was nineteen twenty five and it's I try to get an A. second mile seventeen twenty six but that's good though because I'm still running at a great pace and it's only gonna get it's only a better so now I'm training like I said for speed and stamina so I'm focused on doing hit training on the treadmill for speed I'm focusing on my core so I can it's good for running 'cause use your core lot so whatever I'm I'm working on my core you're and I didn't see much anything about doing any work for the legs but I'm more into that another thing Ed is I read that the best runners do one hundred eighty strides per minute so I counted my strikes today oh I think I did the first one I did one hundred seventy two and the trick is to take shorter and faster strides before I I was I was taking long strides in trying to go faster because I thought that that just I would run faster but I would get tired faster than that wouldn't work but now the short strides I saw that when I was getting tired mid mile or the second the second mid mile that taking those short fastest strides was really didn't have an effect on getting me more more tired and also focusing on my breathing while I'm running so you've gotta take deep breaths into your stomach and exhale it all out so you can continue deep breath because your blood needs oxygen and that's when you get really tired when you blood doesn't have oxygen and you start breath really fast but anyway this podcast is not about running is just it's about Santa Mind but it's also about my Life Buildings the mine so I use the running to get mental strength to get all that negative energy and all that anxiety the and depression out and it really works and it also gives me a ton of ideas and it also boost my confidence to do things that I need to do for Santa Mine Aka raise money and I would love to build a company and get it two hundred million in revenue and not raise time but the company I'm trying to build I need Technology Team Aka I need a team of engineers and some designers so that takes money that salaries so I just made the decision to start raising start get the ball rolling and raising money it takes awhile especially for someone that's not in the in that tech startup world because they only really take warm rose so that sucks but I really don't care but what really pushed me was I saw this is article on tech crunch come out and forgot her name but she's the founder and CEO of a paint company So she her background is interior interior design and she just saw how terrible the whole experience for of buying paint is for your home or office whatever and and she's so low nontechnical founder and she raised two million dollars with just a powerpoint deck just a pitch deck so I see that and I'm thinking I'm working on Santa Mine want to help bring therapists into the like new age where everything is about content and awareness and attention and if people follow you and love you that most likely for therapists at least will turn into hopefully a client but it also I'm also working on helping people there's twenty five million people they don't get the mental health help they need and the number one barrier and this is this is this comes from these are real what's the number one barrier cited is cost so listening to content prerecorded by therapists which you can access demand I think will be a game changer not only for people finding people trying to get the help they need without going to therapy they have different mindsets so when you're on Lincoln your mindset is business business networking connecting with people for business finding the job whatever when you're on facebook your mindset is different you are in I guess maybe family mindset because connected with your family they're close friends maybe like the other thing you know they have you can read reviews of restaurants and events so that's another mindset instagram different mindset you there to see picture and also bringing people that suffer bringing them together and they all talk to each other within these smaller groups and communities to build where people that suffer that need help that want to get educated on what mental health is or what they might be going through can come on discover new therapists from all over the country in America hopefully one day in the world with them I mean how does that and they're going to be other features built in within the APP which are going to be making more socials read about the female founder that raise two million on a deck and I actually have a product launch eight traction and it's known that it's needed by the people and the people want it still little if he if therapists are fully on board with this because you know it's like a.
