"Lowest lifetime value customers. Just looking ltv east to call this. The groupon affect remember that years ago. Yes yes yeah like a ton of people in and then they'd probably go out of business is the groupon effect because you had the wrong customer. That's right that's right. And then the third thing. I'll mention is that it ultimately degrades the value of your brand right if you're sending consistent discounts to even the people that really do like your brand. They're starting to train in the back of their mind. They're thinking price really shouldn't be. What the average advertised price here is. I should never pay full price. It gives people pause reason to pause and not purchase. And then i think going further assuming that you've got competitors in this space like your drop shipper's selling similar goods and you're not stuck to a minimum advertised price policy. The discounting can also turn into a race to the bottom. Or it's like you're just turning over inventory at no profit in the hopes that like well. We're quite customers and later. We will monetize those somehow. That's that's exactly right. That's exactly right. And and those people again are. You're turning your loyal customers into price conscious customers and now it's just the race the race to the bottom is on and it's who can go out of business i we've established the issue with discounts. And i think for a lot of people like they're like we know. But what the heck else am i supposed to do. What do i do instead right right. And that's why we've really built bit gives the way we have. This is something that can be an alternative to a discount. Discount hasn't been disrupted in seventy eighty since it came into existence and probably hasn't been disrupted ever historically i coupon code is ancient sumeria. Are they on. clay tablets. Wonder yeah you got a better bargain on your barter deal than than than on a cash deal but yeah i think i think that on our side..

"I love it or just buy a new one in the right size since that would probably make more sense given the price of the whole ring but who knows when that will happen. I had told him before he proposed. Since we had talked about marriage that i would never want him to spend a crazy amount of money on of engagement ring. While this was in the context of people paying five to ten thousand dollars for one. Which i think is ridiculous but i guess i just thought the symbol of our everlasting love would be a little more significant. I feel like a jerk for being bummed out about. It would love some feedback. Oh my god. I mean i just kept thinking like maybe. It's not a diamond ring. But i didn't realize her finger green no no and how did she find out. He bought it on group on. I wonder if he confessed. Yeah he told her. This brings too big and it turns my finger green. Where'd you get groupon back to the jeweler. No no refunds groupon dish dish. Three sort of. That's insane you could feel bad about that. I wouldn't mind it. I don't hold any credence in that kind of stuff. Diamond rings or whatnot. Feel like it's all sort of arbitrary but you know people put their feelings into things like this the end of the idea of having a big wedding very important to some people. It's not something that i really care about but some people do and so if you have a nice engagement ring when you're living paycheck to paycheck might be like something that's aspirational and so that's where in my head. I'm thinking like just don't do it yet. Just don't get married yet if you don't have the money to get a ring and he's gotta go dumpster diving than it's like. Maybe you're not ready..

How do I market a local healthcare clinic?
"I want to start with that document under who asked today's question tried. A bunch of things tried a bunch of things before asking. This question tried facebook as as a website. Did some free consultations kind of struggling and not really sure how to market the physical business. The physical clinic in the area in malaysia. So today my job is to help document on d. and everybody else who's listening has a physical business and give you the fundamentals the things you have to do to market that business. This is basically going to help you get people through the door okay. Everything else is kind of window window-dressing it will be sickly. Be adding fuel to the fire but if all some of the things that i mentioned say it's going to give you a good chance to get people to get your business to learn more about what you have and become a customer. First of all dr mandate mentions a website. A website is a must have regardless of physical business or an online business. This is how people find out about you. You want to own the narrative about what your business is. What is it about. You want to tell the story of your business. You want to give the information that people are looking for. I wonder if this business does that. The other thing. You have to answer the questions and you do that with your website. Your website is also a great way to be found when people search now one of the things that you need to understand the physical business. Is that search engine. Optimization is going to be your best friend because this is how people choose where to go for something like an aesthetics physician right to go to a clinic. They're gonna shop around. They're gonna do some research and they're going to do through google so you definitely need a website because google wants to see that you have a presence the second thing. Our argument other than a website is listing. Your business on google. Google will list your business so it's found as a local business that means when somebody searches for your business or searches the keywords in her business like aesthetics physician. Your business shows up on google if they're in your local area. This is incredibly important because you automatically get exposure just by being in that searchers local area just like if i write italian restaurant on google. It's gonna show me italian restaurants in my local area. So how do you get listed on google. Well it's actually a pretty simple process You can fall. The step-by-step process by literally writing list. My local business on google on google right then the in the search box. Google gives the steps. Okay but basically google just verify you are actually a physical business. And they're basically going to send you a postcard to address of your local business that it's going to say in google your local businesses at a certain address. It's going to send that postcard address and postcode will have a code will tell you this website. Enter this code. This will verify that this is actually a real physical business located at this address and once you do that. You can update that information on google and you'll be listed. This is actually rule number. One you gotta do this. You gotta list your local business on google. So people could find you locally. Now that you're listed. Google reviews are really important and they will get you to the top of that list when people search for your type of business in your local area so this is incredibly important. When you have a new business is to get people to review you on google. Now if you're on a clinic you have an advantage of the fact that people are filling out forms. They're going to spend a little time. You're clinic asana fast interaction. So even after their first consultation you hand them an ipad and ask to give you a review on the spot as soon as the concentrations over. It's going to take two seconds and it's okay. They've already spent thirty minutes to an hour. They're not really in a super super rush. Not going to do it but more people than not will do. And you'll get the reviews. You need every time. Somebody comes in for a consultation. I know you need some foot traffic to make the happen but this should be a practice. Should be procedure. Every time somebody finishes any kind of consultation give you google review next. You need to look into your local area and find some partnerships you need to find other businesses that will have similar customers and partner with them. Money you an example. My local burger joint has a deal with The local cinema where they have a dealer you by burger and drink and you get a movie ticket for x. amount of price so it's like a bundle deal so in this case. The theater is benefiting because they're getting free advertising. They're getting free marketing from this burger joint now in reverse. The theater will do a similar bundle deal. Advertising to the theater goers go and grab a burger from this local burger joint now if you have aesthetics clinic you may want to look into the local dentists. People that go to the dentist are often doing it for cosmetic reasons not just for health reasons and you can do some sort of partnerships or sort of deal where you can give them sort of discount. Some sort of bundle With every purchase of something at the dentist like checkup or a whitening and you can do the same for the dentist on your side. The players is that you're not just blanket advertising to every single person these are ideal customers people that are willing to spend money on the same things so somebody who's willing to whiten. Their teeth is going to be willing to do something at your clinic. They're willing to spend money at what you offer. So the deal makes sense for both not only the customer but also you in the dentists next if you want to do a mass offer and get maximum exposure you should look into offering a deal on groupon now. Groupon is not a money maker. You have to see this as a customer acquisition tool often people break-even they don't really make much money on the group on deal the whole point of getting the group on just to get people through the door so they can come back and be a repeat. Customer group demands that you actually have a pretty lucrative deal pretty attractive deal and of course they get their cuts at the end of the day. You probably don't make much money but again it's a customer acquisition tool to get them to really love your experience and then come back for additional consultations next some of us. We tried to get more and more different customers. Instead of trying to get the same customers to come in more often is another way you can grow your businesses. Hey instead of trying to get fresh blood incentivize your current customers even if you have five customers that once a year have five customers. Come once a month. You just went from five to sixty sales and you could use bundle packages. I don't massage therapists do this all the time. Where you they can buy in bulk where they could buy six therapies in one shot. Another method is what is done in the restaurant business. Where when they come in for the first time after the first consultation you give them like a card that entitles them to something for free with their knicks consultation. So for example. If i was running a massage clinic or massage shop. I can give him a card. That says you're going to get a free twenty five minute Foot scrub with your next treatment. So it encourages them to show up and comeback and even though you're giving away a twenty five minute foot scrub they're coming in for a consultation and they're getting another experience another win and it becomes more of a tradition more of a regular staple in their life to come to your shop to come to your business.
Protesting farmers threaten to block railway tracks if demands not met
"Hundreds of thousands of indian. Farmers have been protesting outside new delhi for the past. Fortnight they're demonstrating against prime minister. Narendra modi's nufemme policies which they believe will hand. Their agricultural land overtook business. The unrest is spreading throughout the country and echoes. The recent demonstrations over the new citizenship law. Well is this now becoming a test for modi's groupon power to tell us more we're joined by tricky kapila who teaches indian history and politics at the university of cambridge. Good morning to schutte. What are the government plans for culture. Hello are so for some time for some long time. There has been a line on side of economic reform was in india that its agricultural sector needs needs to form so it's a complex system because the pricing of particularly wheat and arrives essentials tour staples is also set by the government. So it's a very complex system of procurement and pricing which is now being opened to as tour of corporate interests of big business. So it's really in a way for for decades because one of the things that happens in its becomes. Independent is that the farming sector is is left tax to kind of overcome the colonial legacy which had been seen a series of famines and as a result the first independent government in india decided. That farming will be taxed. So it's it's it's part of a knock history to buck. These reforms are pretty a pretty as it will. I wouldn't brutal but they're quite. Yeah it's one of about about. They're pretty brutal. They will allow. they will not allow the small farmer. The one acre farm off owns say just a little bit of land to survive and So the government is trying now to open talks it did not expect such a backlash it. It did expect some backlash to come a from a couple of northern states. It was prepared for that but it had it wasn't prepared. Moody was not prepared for aid holding power of off these farmers. Because they've actually gonna come a come and taken over the borders of the capital of the city the capital city in in deady and there are you know the camped up there and so it's it's interesting and because of the farming psycho but because farmers are not due to any great amount of farming till april. This could be a long haul. This protest is not gonna go anytime soon. And i mean it's not just about farm as the government's been trying to push through other reforms to the two sectors which the government has been interested in this particular has been interested in one us label laws and the other is a farm laws. Now movie if you recall has never blinked. He democratized the calling me overnight. This has come without as the parliament's sitting the winter session of parliament has not sat down. It has come to an ordinance so it's pretty as it were direct legislation the prime minister himself and his and his office. And we'll see whether this policy unlike say this ship amendment act which of course in the buddhist of that got interrupted partly because off the off the pandemic. Roberto bet that also is on the chef. But this this is really a set of laws are going to be a test of modi's true political metropcs the keys thus far he has been he's been pretty brazen in putting his agenda forward and pushing it through and taking the cost as an whether it's international opprobrium or criticism from intelligence. He's kind of brushed that aside. This is different because this this matters to a vast vast vast majority of north indian and usa bits of southern farmers So how rattled is mode. I mean is this a real threat to his power. I mean it's hard to say because aden he's not due to face a mandate for another four years so he's fine at that level but it is also interesting that every winter as your opener stated now does the second winter where there are there are large scale protests in the capital city over now a different a different issue. It took me shows that his agenda is not one of consensus his agenda whether it is in the economy because people fear that this would bring in a big corporate interests people who backed him like embodies audio danny's who will then as it were by big land takeover farmland but also take over a not just land but it was the entire system of buying and selling them into into the retail sector. So i think that real dangers in terms of the way in which corporate corporatization of indian agriculture and on the side but he has had some positive as it were support from the economic liberals in your delhi's intelligence circles or policy circa. This is a brief set of reforms. And he should it dozen this debate both in terms of the the policy world. But i think the scale of the protests are we seeing signs of blinking on the side of moody because he has now had got his representatives to talk to a farm and the leaders of these these and they cut across party lines. These the is these unions that have come come today so but those talks now. They've had two or three series of talks all failed. So let's see. This is of that moment whether he will make some concession. Particularly on pricing is what one gathers. There might be some concession. But i don't think the laws which is what they want. These three sets of laws to repeal. The farmers demand is pretty high. So i'm not sure where the room for maneuver is going to come from. And i mean the purchase had a knock on effect. I mean for instance. I understand that chon sports being badly affected. Yes i mean. The city is all the deli sort of sits between two or three very major. You know it's it's the route into central india. And the barricades have been erected before the i was going to come and you know because there there's so many farmers just lifted the barricades them aside and took over a the entry level the entry point into city so that we know that means good Goods shocking all of that is affected. And you really can't get out of the city lock as it were neighboring states in you know look at can bring in goods into into into the capital so i think a transport of course is a deeply affected but it's also very bad for moody to see You know the this kind of resort and it's not bad for his image if you have hundreds of thousands of peasants with their families you know it's not just been but the families a camping actually doorstep and and if if he looks like he he he doesn't engage with them he will also come across someone who's not die logic something. He's not met journalist. For instance. i think that will that will dent his it identifies image if he so. We'll see it's kind of interesting moment In whether he. I said whether he not concede something blink. Make some concessions. Or whether he's going to sue the remain ideologically a commit did to these reforms and we'll take the political slack as it comes

"Listening to me today I don't care if you're live I, don't care if it's an archive, I don't care somebody shared it with you or you just happen to fall onto the show. If you are a person that stays the you don't know your true gifting news you don't know what your talents are. Today is the day that you are going to acknowledge what it's already in you and you are going to make it shine your. Your inner light, your inner being doesn't have to be religious if you're not a religious or spiritual person who you are. Don't look at other people don't allow other people the media outside sources to tell you where your gifts and where your talents lie. What you need to do is turn your focus in on yourself. If. You are good at keeping your house. Clean. You are good at organizing things that is a gift that is a talent and it can make you six figure income. It has been proven remember in the beginning of the show and I've talked about today is the day that you are going to make a change for greater. I, gave you the steps necessary to do it do your own research. If you're a person that likes to watch sports and it's easy for you to comprehend, you could possibly have a gift or a talent of coaching. If you're the type of person rated researching. You can jump anywhere find out I have some friends and co-workers. One in particular I, call her coupon guru. There's a website called groupon where you can go and find this count on almost any event any party you can think of and one of my co workers. I don't care what it is. She hops on groupon and find a discount that is a gift that is talent people will actually pay you to help them save money. You don't necessarily have to put a title on it and try to figure out what to call yourself but at first you need to acknowledge that. Yes, I am gifted. Yes. I am talented once you acknowledge that didn't you can move forward and find out exactly what area you're.
"We are going to start with some earnings. and honestly, this is one of those situations where you put earnings in air quotes. Because we're talking about groupon and the first quarter results. They actually weren't as bad as wall. Street was fearing. groupon still lost a lot of money and shares down about ten percent today. Yeah, it was not a great quarter for groupon. The shares the sales fell thirty five percent. Gross profit was down thirty four percent they laid off or furloughed about twenty seven hundred employees out of their sixty three hundred employees, and they also have a new CEO and coo left, so it's been a wild couple of months for your opponent hasn't been great. I'm glad you mentioned the management change because that was something I. SORTA noticed this morning when I was reading about this quarterly report and one of the statements was from interim CEO Aaron Cooper Aaron. Cooper's Bennett groupon for a decade or so, but I was like well. Wait a minute. What's the interim and yeah, as you mentioned a couple of months ago? The board basically said that the CEO the chief operating officer and the. Oh, yeah you. You're both Outta here. So. I'm not even sure where the silver lining is right now with group on because on top of everything else last week they executed the dreaded reverse stock split, and in this case it was a one for twenty. Stock splits so for those unfamiliar. Regular stock split is you sometimes companies will come out and say hit a two one split. If you own it for every one share you own your now going to have to, but of course the prices cut in half the reverse split is the opposite because they're trying to boost their stock price, and so they came out and said forever twenty shares you own. You'RE GONNA. Get One so I mean the management shake-up. The fact that Aaron Cooper has been there a decade and still has the interim tag on his CEO Title I. Don't Know Him, but I think it'd be a little miffed if that were the case. You have to wonder what the board is up to there. And then you know you and I were talking about this earlier today. Maria I. Mean this is we're in the middle of a pandemic. I think of group on I know. They have several business lines, but I think of them as more of like the experience company for a long time that's been their marketing like. Hey, go out and take a hot air balloon ride and we're going to get you a discount on that and that sort of thing and. Know again. It's not all of their business, but they are really taking a hit in this environment. Yeah, I think that the experiences is really where they get their bread and butter. That's what they're known for they are trying to look they break out their revenues in terms of their local and their travel revenue travel revenues less than ten percent local revenues, almost ninety one percent of that revenue, but a good chunk of local revenues experiences within that local space and so i. don't think that. That will bounce back anytime soon. I guess the only silver lining would be that as state start reopening, people and companies will be so desperate for anyone to come. have really good deals in the TRI news utilized. groupon and people will try to utilize it if they don't have. That steady income that they're used to, but it's still not a great outlook for groupon. It's a good point and I think that. One of the things they talk about active customer base. It'll be interesting to see if they're able to grow that in the next three to six months. I'm wondering if you think I mean. They have between North America where they have about twenty five million active customers and an international of of North America another sixteen million, so they got about forty forty, two million active customers. This is not a big company. The market cap is about seven hundred fifty million dollars. Do you think? Do. You think someone's going to swoop in and by group on just so they can get that active customer base, or do you think that there are still enough question marks that? That's not in the cards right now I. think it would be kind of a smart acquisition for some people to get you that bigger customer base, and for people to continue to implement deals. Everyone everyone. I love a good deal. I know a lot of people who have a good deal so having those options are pretty smart. If you're a big retailer or you want exposure into at a growing customer base of people who are generally live in cities, like deals like experiences I feel like it's pretty uh smart to grow that customer base if you need to.

Leadership Development at Groupon with Dr. Eliza Wicher
"I met our guest today at the Chief Learning Officer Exchange in Austin Texas earlier this year in fact it was the last business. I went to before sheltering in place. Cool event put on by the people at Iq now our guest has a PhD. In I o psychology and over a decade of experience in the real world doing talent management. Today she's the global head of talent development at groupon. Our guest is Dr Elisa. Witcher Liza welcome to the lead X. Leadership show much glad to be here now. I mentioned in the in the introduction that we met earlier this year At at a CEELO event where you're presenting your approach to leadership development at groupon and I was really blown away by that at a lot of levels so I'm just grateful that you're willing to come on and share some of your wisdom with us. Oh Yeah I'm so glad to be here It's been a really really refined so I'm happy to to share anything that maybe might be helpful to else out there now. I don't know if you're going to even remember this but I thought One of your very first for slides. It was so simple but sometimes the simple stuff so important it was called build great managers and there were like four step starting with setting expectations. Do you remember presenting that Walk us through that. Yeah absolutely you know really this was all about. I think as a lot of people in in my role or roles similar to mine you approach by either folks in the business or even a colleague in hr who a lot of times come to you with we need training on X Y and Z and it was pretty clear to us that we really have an opportunity to just continuously equip our managers to be great at managing their teams. Other reason for that. Is We have a lot of really young employees in the company. We've got a lot of first time. Managers do a lot of promoting from within and so recognizing as we know that this is just a really high impact group of people that if we can get them really good at managing their teams. That's going to lead to high engagement high-performance and really just kind of high performing teams that we need to do what we do. Really well So with that in mind you know. It's something that we all know. We need to just be really good at building that capability but getting back to your point about the four pieces. I think a lot of times. We hear these requests for the training piece right or the capability building piece but My perspective on this is you know it's always more than training People need to people need almost a whole ecology around adopting a new set of behavior. So you need an environment that sending you really consistent signals in a lot of ways about a ways that that you're expected to behave in just do your job so really what we tried to do was approached this With with four different pieces to the I is just clear expectations than I think. A Lotta people intuitively know what it means to manage a team pretty well like we all know got to do things like set clear. Goals give clear feedback. That kind of stuff but for a lot of our folks. We know that either. They don't know the full picture or maybe heard conflicting things in either case. We need to just get on the same page as a company. What exactly is it that we want our managers to be doing in the course of managing their teams so we set off with the set of expectations that we just called the group manager expectations. They're aligned to these higher level leader habits that we have but they're just a lot more day to day practical of. How do you just manage your team behavioral right so very very much the kind of thing you can you can see so? We paired that with some feedback and metrics we included in our employee survey a new section specifically on those manager expectation so managers are now getting that direct feedback from their team of how they're doing it meeting each of those expectations. So we set the expectation. We give clear feedback through that that survey as well as a few other mechanisms as well. The third piece of it is the capability building. So that's the training piece right and that's You know the the leader journey that we put together all of these different kind of programs and tools that we put out there. Managers the final piece of these. Four buckets is than accountability. And that's the thing that a lot of times you know. We know we send people to training but it's unclear they actually doing the things we want them to do back on the job so we wove into our performance review process that all of our people managers get a people management assessment that is factored into their overall performance evaluation. And there's a couple other accountability pieces as well but that's the big one so really just to summarize. We set clear. Expectations give people feedback on how they're doing against the expectations. We give them lots of opportunity to learn and build their capability and then finally we hold them accountable to really exhibiting those behaviors. Day to day now Elisa so much in there and you you summarized it so well and I just want a really for for our listeners. Because it sounds. I'm sure there's a lot of listeners. Might be thinking well of course. That's obvious. Why wouldn't you do it that approach? But as I talked to many Folks involved a leadership development every week. This is actually pretty rare. So what a concept I mean. The first is like the expectations in too often. There'll someone will say. Oh Yeah we have that leadership competency model but then the model doesn't tie to what they're being measured on the engagement survey and the engagement survey items aren't being trained on or even if you're setting the expectations measuring at training to it. The accountability pieces missing. Were when it comes to the you know. Y- performance reviews bonuses or whatever if your bonus for sales quota and not at all for people management. You know what you're going to care more about and so those are like the four cornerstones for I think any great Leadership Development Program. And then of course there's tons of variety in each because what might be a critical habit at groupon might not be as important somewhere else. It might have something else. Does that make sense absolutely absolutely and yeah? That's the thing I don't. I'm not really sure why why people wouldn't do more of the things outside the training piece for us. I mean we we really seek to keep things really simple. So none of this. Like Complex rocket science kind of stock. It's just you know just logical and trying to keep it really consistent so people are getting the same messages everywhere they look and they're getting those messages clearly they're getting them consistently and I think that's best way to really drive behavior change or a really learning something new So so yeah I think. We've we've seen some pretty good success with it in the sense that like everybody's on the same page and it's not just something you hear about in your workshop. It's something that you're hearing about in the pulse survey at Performance Review Time throughout all these other touch points.

Groupon furloughs sales staff amid coronavirus pandemic
"What ten Groupon is following parts of its sales and sales operations teams as a result of the pandemic Groupon CEO was ousted last month after a week for a quarter fourth quarter the interim CEO announced the cuts in an email said he expects to extend the furloughs and layoffs of employees company is releasing how many people were furloughed or laid
Groupon axes CEO and COO as company looks to mount a recovery during a crisis
"Before we get into the mailbag. Let's talk about groupon because shares of groupon are up ten percent on the news that rich Williams who's the CEO and Steve Krizner. Who's the chief operating officer are leaving immediately? Yeah and we don't really have a lot of other details other than groupon is saying both remain employed by the company. There's no comment from groupon at this point on the reason for the changes. I'm I've never been more interested in groupon I mean the the CEO and the CEO are walking out the door or are leaving those jobs immediately and the stock goes up ten percent. Well I mean you can certainly make the argument that they weren't really getting the job done right. I mean if you look at groupon usually just the fundamentals of the business. I mean we've talked about groupon ever since they went public in. What was it alphabet offered? Was it around. Three billion was it six billion dollars that they that they offered groupon back in the day. It was some unusual things I when we when we look at the state of groupon. Now I mean clearly in hindsight they should have taken that deal Because I'm Nina. Revenue is is is winding down right. I mean we're revenue growth is non-existent. It's it's It's not a profitable company. I mean there's a company that's facing a lot of challenges and so I don't really know why Management Lee's I'm sure this is probably a bit of a response do just to the greater market reaction. We've had over here Over the past several days in you know we've seen this play out before with other companies I mean. Jc Penney obviously has gone through a lot of leadership changes. And we've seen when former leader step down in new leader step in. I mean there is some enthusiasm because maybe there's a light at the end of the tunnel there I I don't know in case that's really something. Investors should expect. I do think it's really fascinating to look at so so the Aaron Cooper is going to step in as the interim CEO while the company ultimately looks for a permanency. Yoda's possible that Mr Cooper gets that job at the end of the day. But it you know he. He was awarded in. He's going to receive an award of four million restricted restricted share units For this enemy vests over over time. It four million restricted share unit. Sounds like a lot but but then you look at we're groupon stock is today at just under a dollar and well. Maybe that doesn't look is is great as it sounds On paper and I mean he's going to obviously get a salary and bonus In in an extremely challenging role in trying to figure out this company's place in our world because I think before there was maybe at least the argument the groupon possesses some brand equity that maybe a bigger network out there could exploit and benefit from. I'm not so sure that's really even the case now And so I you know I mean a market pop today. Notwithstanding not sure this really should should Make you feel any better about either owning shares or potentially owning shares. But but you know hey listen if you could certainly be wrong. I mean Mr Cooper could have a plan in place in you know. Bring MORE VALUE TO THE
A Good Day for Garmin
"A good day for Garmin shares of garment up more than seven percent on earnings at the time of our taping this stock hitting a twelve year high now garment all about. Gps technology. Bill back in the day. I thought of Garmon as basically your car. Divisor your boat or somebody's boat. Not our boat characterized as much more of a fitness device maker. What do you make of garment? Well so when you think about Garmon you really have thought of it. As being auto abode. Gps Avionics they really are becoming more and more of fitness company Thirty four percent growth their fitness in their fitness division the firing on all cylinders except for auto which is which is dropping and becoming a smaller and smaller part of the business. So really really doing. Well I'm having a good chuckle right now because I when I was prepping the story I had the opposite read as you might think of garment as just as a fitness tracker comedy no auto and Marine and aviation devices. Do that's hilarious? So that's a generational. Divide there but I agree. I think Garmin hasn't really great mark. It's been great for them. I would just caveat all of this you know. Great earnings revenues nearly at four billion dollars. So it's a big company than you might assume I will just say it's a naturally lumpy business. We we see a lot of excitement over new devices and new products especially fitness category. So really good gear really good quarter for fitness devices for Garmin. There's no reason to think that will stop. But there's also no reason to assume that it will continue forever.
Groupon Stock Slumps
"On the markets groupon stock tumbled twenty four percent in late trading Tuesday after the coupon APP said it's getting out of the retail business and focusing more on offering experiences here to explain. Why is our Quentin web? Well groupon positions this as a transformational move effectively. It's trying to focus in on what it thinks is its core business which is local experiences and it complains that the sort of e commerce market is very saturated in competitive. So it's not really an area where it can kind of be a strong competitor. It looks like though investors are taking this pretty badly in the stock fell almost a quarter. Roughly a quarter in after hours trading on Tuesday groupon has struggled fears affect screen is worth a fraction of what it was when it first went public In twenty eleven and this latest sort of strategic shift doesn't seem to be well received the Wall Street Journal's Quinton Web and here's what else were watching today the Federal Reserve releases minutes from its January.

Vestiaire and Depop on the Rise of the Resale Economy
"We invited Max Bittner. Ceo of vascular collective and Marya RAGAS COPD pop to the voices twenty nine teen stage to speak with B. O. F. Sustainability correspondent. Sarah Kent about the rise of the resale economy. Neither you come from a fashion industry background so I wanted to stop by having both of you talk through way you come from and what drew you to this opportunity and Maria if you would like to kick off sure so late Hayden I also have to accept that I come from. The math made consulting World and I did that for about five years and then I jumped into the world Started at groupon. I did that for about five years. And then I I discovered depot actually before being part of the team Because I was looking for some vintage clothes and I was talking about the fact that he was a mobile first platform which five years ago. It was not that obvious Many companies wear addresses from web into mobile and so the fact that he was mobile. I the fact that they were using social media very smart way to build community to to a very very organic way I was redirected by it. So that's why he joined a Max. You had very strong equalness background but not in fashion. So why make the jump into this industry so I previously built a company called Lozada in Southeast Asia which was ECOMMERCE general merchandise? We are actually terribly bad at fashion and was one of my obsession for a long time and I really failed miserably. Added and after selling the company TATY BABA. I was looking for opportunities moving back to Europe. In vecchio opportunity came out of nowhere after I didn't know the company understood the concept of retail. But I've been in such a tunnel for the last seven eight years that I didn't have time to digest it but what fascinated me when I looked at the business in kind of engaged with with Moore was the incredible emotional connection between the buyers and the sellers and the products in the brands and the engagement with the platform and coming from Asia. This whole concept of community social engagement is is such a big part of ECOMMERCE and I felt that you know. Of course you have pioneers like the pope driving that in Europe but the rest of the environment was still heavily Amazon Dogma ties about a surge after card filters efficiently as possible. You know the emotional connection of of you know not much so I felt this was an incredibly exciting but and you know living in a world where we all ask ourselves what to do. It seemed like an amazing opportunity to actually run a business. Which core kind of fundamental is built on sustainability is built on on circularity? So you know I looked at what the business was good at and I think the stairs and amazing fashion. Dna A great brand amazing supply and a look at what could be improved with my background on Scaling and Tech Company and I felt the combination was an amazing one. Utah Utah Johnson. Very topical points this Stain Ability. The power of community all of which kind of encapsulated in recall. Mus Is it that that's helping to drive this market now. All Maria water. What is driving the growth? We're seeing and resell the moment So I think there's there's three things that are driving. Industry one is definitely a consumer behavior change towards Secondhand again five years ago it was hard to to believe that there was gonna be in a way you think about the next generation more than fifty percent are already buying secondhand or concealing to Isaac and hunting the near future so this is something that five years ago it was really hard to to conceive. the second thing is the fact that sicken sick and heights more accessible and so our consumer supressive by default so allowing people to buy high quality items at a lower price is definitely something very attractive for consumers and lastly the proliferation of all impact from slightly Bob and respective it's allowing a basic concentration of inventory at digitally military that allows consumers to have more choice in the case of of depot. I think the driver has been more and driven by our core audience so ninety percents of our users are under the age of twenty six. So they're very young and they are looking for for ways to socialize. That are different to the ones of all of the generation so again The promoted social media. Because that's their mobile natives. And they they do that. Also for fashion dates so for us will go a community. You see that the fact that the pope is social platform social marketplace. It has basically make the business to grow faster and getting Organic Way. And then secondly the second thing that our audience wants is to make money and so we are able to provide a platform that makes it very easy for them to sell those items and to make money as a result so as a consequence you you have very vibrant community are very engaged users that are super passionate about fashion and they are actually in the day making secondhand cool which again contributes to making the resale platform. I mean the the research will go faster. And that's that's the has a slightly different beast as a luxury product. It's more it's an older consumer. Is it the same drivers the flight northing happy? You remembered all the statistics because keeps forgetting them but to add to that. I think there's one or two points which are allowing us as a business to thrive. I think the first one is that that from the outside the fashion industry in some sort of way mirrors. What's happening in society? Where you know. The rich get richer and the luxury players are chasing them up. The stairs might use the example of being also consultant in the past. Having to buy suits choice back then was buying Hugo boss suits. I'm German so that's what I have to wear as a German and buying food which I couldn't afford the time in at the time is any suit would cost like eight hundred fifty euros nine euros now. Sued cost two thousand five hundred euros and on the bottom end. You know you have the parts of side which are struggling and fast fashion becoming cheaper and cheaper to to serve those needs and you have this forgotten middle class. You know which in the past could afford I suit is bag a nice night in a in a nice hotel but a lot of that has become out of reach because the industry defines itself by becoming more and more exclusive and you know being some sort of a hard to reach and so I think the opportunity frosties is absolutely to defend ourselves and make a lot of these beautiful products accessible in some sort of way in finding the right owner for the right product and the right time in their life cycle. So I think that's two points and I'm sure you'll both happily talk about how great this market is and the opportunities there for the next fifteen minutes. Let's talk a little bit about the challenges as well on the luxury side. Everyone will be aware of the criticisms leveled against the Rio recently in terms of the problems with their authentication problem. Max with Vesti Eras. Call capacitor in the space. How damaging are those allegations the credibility of the entire luxury resale market? And how big a challenge is authentication. You know I'm I'm not going to hide behind. This was my competitor. You know I think you will find the same criticism against this year am out there. I think we do a lot to improve every single day and you know we face our challenges being fast growing company to to scale of every process that we make as much as we can so so. We're not perfect. We try to perfect. We try to improve every day. I think the the two three things to that I really want to point out is Frost at our cores is the trust in our community and the trust that community gifts to each other and towards us and if things in that in these processes breakdown You know we really see all as a platform to step in and say okay something wrong. We'll take care of it in. The consumers need to reach out to us and we will fix it and we tried to learn from every one of these mistakes every single time they happen and I think the second one is that we have this community. We have people we trust. These people have a history on us and I think it's our job as a platform in the future to make that history much more transparent and and you know bring people together and but let's not distract from the things that we do well. I think it's very easy for for new business models like ours who go like the speed that we do to point out the small things which go wrong you know. I would love people to really focus on on the good we bring. I think we are fundamentally at Harvard business. Which does something about sustainability and circularity? And that's a lot more than you know. Trucking in forty trees to fashion show in saying

3 Spending Habits That Are Setting You up for Failure by Kumiko of The Budget Mom on How To Be Mindful with Money
"Three spending habits that are setting you up for failure by Camillo of the budget. Mom Dot Com. There's always a reason why we save too little and have too much debt. People lose their jobs. The economy takes nosedive and getting a raise is almost impossible. Aw what people don't realize is that we are often our own worst enemy. When it comes to our financial circumstances everyone is guilty of the occasional spending slip up and sometimes it's hard to recognize that it's happening more than we'd like to admit here are three spending habits that will not only kill your budget but will also set you up to fail financially one spending money. Because you are bored. I like to call this Zombie spending most of the time. You don't even realize you're doing it. It's so easy to head to the mall. Go out to eat or spend and some time browsing your favorite online store where you almost always get sucked into buying things you don't need. Everything becomes a distraction to fill our time. When we don't have anything better to do. Believe me I know Zombie shopping all too well. One of the biggest challenges I faced was online shopping. It's so easy to be laying in bed checking your facebook and get scammed into checking the email you just received from your favorite online store with a message. Flash sale everything thirty percent off the result. Is You end up having ten things delivered to your front door that you don't need and a huge credit card bill to match the number one thing that helped me kick the Zombie. Shopping habit was to unsubscribe from all the stores emails. The easiest thing you can do who is to stop the temptation sites like groupon and apps like Bata are great but not if they are making you spend money. You don't have look for other ways to distract yourself. Try Try picking up a new hobby that you can do from home or join a book club after discovering my love for hiking. I feel more rewarded from day of exploring the outdoors than I did from spending out of Habit Abbott to spending money. You don't have this. Spending habit comes in many different forms. Your tax return an unexpected bonus or raise or even self employment employment income can all fall into the category of money that you might not have these. Things are not guaranteed income yet. People depend on them. People already plan out what they're going to spend this money beyond without knowing if they will actually receive it. Have you ever thought to yourself. I will use my tax refund to buy that. This is the perfect example of spending money. You don't have. Maybe maybe you put the purchase on your credit card thinking you've paid off with your tax return only to find out that you actually owed the irs. Now you have a credit card balance with no way of paying it off the same is true with work bonuses. The best thing you can do is not think of this. Money has guaranteed income. You should also never include work bonuses or an estimated tax refund in in your budget that way if you never receive it you are not so deep in debt hole that you can't climb out of it instead if and when you receive this type of money use it to reach your financial goals of paying off debt or increasing. Your savings credit card debt is another great example of spending money. You don't have the most appealing thing about credit. Cards is the ability to pay later for items items that you can receive now. The biggest mistake is using credit to purchase ordinary things like gas or groceries. You can't rely on credit cards if you don't have them with you. Oh I went almost a full year without any credit cards in my wallet. It's okay to have a credit card but it's not okay to have a credit card that you are constantly using because you don't have the cash to pay for things rely only on your income and never spend more money than you make if you decide to use your credit card to make a purchase. Make sure you can pay it off in full every month month to avoid interest and three spending to impress quote. We spend money that we do not have on things. We do not need to impress. People who do not care will Smith. It's easy not to care about impressing people whose opinions you don't care about but it seems like life or death when you want to impress someone who you do care about. Maybe it's a friend someone you WANNA meet a CO worker or family. Whoever it might be. Let me be the one to tell you that spending money. You don't have to impress someone. Someone is not worth it. The funniest thing about these situations is that the person you want to impress his probably so busy trying to impress you that they don't even notice all all the things you bought to impress them. A generous heart kindness. Hard Work Dedication and true intentions are far more likely to impress someone than possessions.

Everything You Wanted to Know About Your Vagina With Dr. Sherry Ross
"We are talking about. Vaginas who needed every topic last topic Yeah Virginia's vaginal health all of the stuff that nobody wants to talk about or really does but that's what we do here in love it love it. I think everyone does WanNa. Talk talk about it. No one wants to be the first. Why do you think as an over you and why do you think talking about magical health or reproductive health is so taboo yeah you know. I think it's just cultural I mean women are not trained and learned how to even say the word Vagina we all have code code words forty percent of women the JJ puddle of love Harry Potter Tunnel of love either the call yours Vagina Vaj Vagina jeans I think I think it's important that we have the conversation because then we can start talking about it yeah. I don't think I was ever taught lake a nickname for it like a good thing. Let's let's a good I've never really been afraid of Jonah's or saying it my mom's also an Obgyn so we had like photos of like the insides of her like surgeries all over the house just so I was like oh great. There's the inside that's good yeah so that's how that's how it should be. I think we all have to start owning it talking about it and racing it loving it and then we can really talk about the issues surrounding it right but she told me her mom. My grandma would never let her talk about it when she was younger would never you couldn't talk about your period. It's you know UN- Taboo. It's taboo you just threat so. I'm glad we're here today yeah. How did you become passionate about this. You know I love talking to women. I really feel like when women come to the office and they put their legs in stirrups. The conversation really begins. You know it just pours out and you're very vulnerable. Who are you know I think I think women are dying to talk about some of the issues surrounding Regina and they just want that comfortable space and on a mission somewhat of a Vagina Revolution solution to continue this conversation and dialogue because because women really do want to know more. What is the most common question people feel kind of uncomfortable to ask but they get it out there? I think definitely is surrounding cleaning the vagina. Yeah you know because we're SORTA taught that you don't clean the vagina because it self cleaning and I think it's really confusing. It's such a confusing topic topic. So is it self-cleaning well. You know here's the thing that's what we hear and read about. The giant is complicated right. We know it's complicated did and I like to think about an analogy about the vagina and self cleaning because we think about your home oven being self cleaning right you still have to clean gene the stove top right and that's when we were looking at the vagina because the inside of the vagina is has tons of healthy bacteria and it does clean itself is have tears takes care of it similar to the inside of the giant at the outside the vulva that is another area of the term term Jonah and the entrance to the vagina these are areas that have to be clean because they're exposed to sweat and bacteria especially from the rectum blood from our period area right so it's messy and dirty and this is why we have to clean the outside of the vagina and preferably you know with Vagina. A friendly vagina made specific products right so is there something that like can can you affect how clean or dirty it is is based on what you eat not dirty work but like you eased already ring. Definitely I mean we sort of talk about about what does the vagina taste like right and this is directly related to our diet because if you think about it and I don't know if you've ever wondered wondered what I taste like. Have you ever done the test and stick your finger inside down your personal thought of that. What's collusion you gotta you gotTa wonder because there is a footprint right. There's a vaginal footprint. We all have and just like anything what we eat eight in our diet what we drink we smoke all ends up in our body fluids in our bureau in our vaginal taste and a male as well so when you think about your market list and what should be at the top you know we think about pineapple and Kiwi the and blueberries and mangoes and cucumbers and Lemons and good probiotics that actually make the vagina smell and taste good. I've heard of something called Kito crotch which Yes yes. That's okay so tell us what that is. Well see I I believe Kito crotch exists because if I'm telling you what should be in your fruit salad right then for the same reason when you eat a lot of meats beats high-protein your breath has a special acetone smell well guess what so can your vagina and I believe that ought is just true all across the board so the bad list of foods that can make the smell not so good and taste not so good are going to a lot of spices and onions and garlic and you know curry and and to Merak sorry I'll you bone people that use it bone aches but also the ABC vegetables like asparagus how it makes your urine smell. Okay people say this but I've never noticed it and I eat a lot of asparagus so maybe it's become come just so common should go in with a girlfriend letter smelly but also broadly scientists study the control group. Yo you know asparagus Broccoli and cabbage and cauliflower. These are the typical vegetables that can cause odors so you sort of have the good lists and bad list right the Christopher's vegetables. It's so funny I remember my counselor in camp. I was way too young for her to be telling me this but you should be eating like for like mangoes and Pineapples for your for your vagina to taste is nine eighteen seventeen sexually active and teaching me my prepubescent so she was very forward-looking. Thank you still remember it. So that's you know so what are some common issues that people come to you with and how do they fix them. Yeah well that it. Everybody's got an itchy vagina at some point right and people always equate an itch to yeast infection and oftentimes you know the skin of the vagina can become very dehydrated right if you if you think about sort of the skin in this very sensitive area area. It's always important to take care of it like our face. If we took care of our vagina like we do our face we clean it. We hydrate it. moisturizes it so this is ways to prevent sort of dehydration and sort of aging of skin but the ITCH is very common for women and there are a lot of feminine eminent hygiene rituals and products that we use on our vagina that outside the Vulva are era. I'm talking about that can be very irritating and it can be you know soaps. That aren't vaginas specific. Maybe too much fragrance or the bubble baths or you know you're wearing pads because you get an extra discharge. You want to catch our soil cycling things like that can cause tissue to become very dehydrated and very itchy so that's something that's not always related to to an infection and it could just be. Hey better have a better feminine hygiene ritual that can make the skin moisturizing. You never thought about moisturizing my vagina. Neither and it's interesting because the skin is like thin right fichus in your it's also not sun-exposed hopefully we'll. You never think it's doesn't look California. They do you know it's it's really true. Though I'm I am a huge fan of moisturizing the Jonah and the best way to do it is getting extra virgin coconut oil and you take a handful and warm water and you so can if you do it for twenty minutes three or four times a week. You're going to have the softest skin and vagina in town because it's trump's in the water and it's very moisturizing so oh it's all about how can we take care of the vagina in the same way we do our face and use special products that are very specific for the vagina an and that's why. I'm a huge fan of summers. Even I've been using and talking about I use it personally but I've been talking about it for years to my patients because you you have to protect the vagina use specific products that have been dermatological tested on skin tested by the gynecologist. You know that don't have horrible dies and parabens in it and just are very safe and Ph balanced and the vagina very temperamental right. It's complicated and temperamental all two different. Ph balanced changes so why not use a product that is just for the vagina and it's just the perfect partner. So what do you what do you you use or what do you recommend people use well. I as I said I love the summer's. Eve intimate wash washes that they have they. They have great soft gentle fragrances that are hell easy gentle on the on the outside of the vagina use it every day sometimes twice if I'm workout got it night and it just I just have no problem and then I- moisturised with other products that that helped the skin so this may be tim I but my vagina has is no problems much great not team I in this but it's this is important. I I love that. We're talking about it because women need to not oppy filled with any embarrassment or shame. You need to wash your vagina the outside and the entrance every day. Let's be clear. Let's talk about some of the misunderstandings that a lot of women are having. I've a question about when it comes to hair removal so obviously like a lot of women want to either wax or they'll get Eliezer or something shave. Which of those do you think is best or worst and I've ever see encounter product problems from any of those things will well absolutely and it's a great question and I think this is where you know the skin of the Vagina Labia on the outside of the Volvo s were calling it now you you know when you remove it. When you shave it. It's going to be comeback thicker just like it would on our legs and there's a lot more chance of having ingrown hair when you shave. I've whack seeing tends to be less but you still can get ingrown hairs and might after Loofah and then honestly lasers probably the best us even though it's not always as you know cost friendly for patients but it definitely always work well. It doesn't work out like that long so you certainly yeah. It's not complete but again. If you're you have to make sure the vagina the Volvo area's cleaned loofah and moisturizing is very very helpful but also it can dry the skin out talking about dehydration. You know it can shaving is very hard on the skin. It can make the a skin very dry. Yes definitely there's no like worry about Lee Putting Eliezer near your reproductive organ. I always know the laser zor is just on the skin. It doesn't have any harmful effects on the ovary. Your eggs are safe and it doesn't have any issues. Choose their and of course you know. I always like to go to a medical doctor for laser. Don't go down the street to a pop up kind of place that it does good advice honestly because there's so many things you can get groupon for leasing all know groupon. Maybe getting a good price but it's probably not gonna work because really the the better. Our quality lasers are often more expensive and oftentimes you know sort of physicians are going to be more likely to be using the best quality

Like I can watch the first three or four innings, and then you take a nice little trip over to the Budweiser bar, and you that's redo the mingling. And you that's where you half watch for a couple of innings then you go back to your seats for the end that you have like somewhere more you. Can go because it's a long thing that just sit in a seat for three hours, I've only seen seat in that stadium once so it's cool to be able to have somewhere to go where you can still see the game. And just, you know change it up for a little bit first game ever at that ballpark. I one with ROY and Mark Hoffman. And we sat in our seats, down the first base line. I've been in that ballpark, I think, maybe nine times in total since it opened only game I actually sat in the seat every other time, I'm just just, you know, sauntering around sampling. What a what the, the ballpark has to do? Here's a cool thing about Marlins ballpark, and I don't I'm not really sure it's cool for the organization all the restaurants change, like every time I've been there been totally different. So I don't know if they're just losing sponsorships, or they're just constantly trying to update the experience for the people that are attending probably. It's probably the first one, I'm just assuming especially with the change in ownership group, but they do a good job of making it entertaining for people like me that have lost their passion for the sport because of David Samson Jeffrey Loria. I have two two things. I have a concern, I have a suggestion for the Marlins. Can I I'd like to give the suggestion first before we move onto my concerns and suggestions? Yeah. Concern suggestion congestion? Yes, I have congestion. So I was thinking when I was at Marlins park. Do they still don't have a name, and I was thinking the perfect name for Moreland park would be Alex Hanna park like vein to reach out to Alex, Hanna and have them call it. Alex Hanna part are you has the money. I'm sure that he has the money to name Moreland pork. Alex Hanna park. And I think it needs to get done. Also, when I was discussing Alexander park, the people that I was with looked at me like I was a crazy person. And then we started talking out. Well, Alex Hanna needs something in Miami named after him does. And if it's not Moreland, part, great suggestion by my fiance. They should name the palmetto after Alexander's because God knows the majority of his business comes for the palmetto. So in the mornings, you'd say, you know, there's congestion on Alex Hanna north. There's congestion on a Hannah highway. Yeah. Where were you? Well, you were likely in your car. I remember it's a moment in time because Alexander had certain billboards where he had hair, and then it was the same photo for damn near ten years. And then all of a sudden. Sudden dude shows up with a totally different series pose looking like professor. X in the next series of photos, over the course of ten years. He went totally chrome dome, and it was just a shocking thing to digest, I think what happened was and I could be totally wrong here. And I feel like it's his dangerous, because he's a very good lawyer that I should be careful with my words like no, I feel like what happened was Alex..

"Yeah. So that's what I wanted. I joyce. Joyce today. Shorting yamamoto. We'll be making his major league debut. He's one of the pieces, we got in the yelich trade. Really, yes. This says your Yamamoto pitches a perfect game today. I think we can say we won the trade on the tray, if not, I, I don't want to set expectations too high for Jordan Yamamoto, but perfect gamer. Bus today. I was watching inside the Marlins thing, the other day on the prospects and obviously these kind of things are going to make any prospects there. Let's Marlins program. Right. So they're programming on their prospect. So they're trying to get you excited and will swing at anything. How you excited about short Votto. No, it's not. I saw the the profile. I saw was the other guy the Assan Di as the second baseman, we got in that deal because like the big three guys pitcher Lewis Brinson and then the second onto the new crop. Now, I'm and this guy, he's got like ten homers in the in the minors this season. So the exciting thing is Yamamoto. This was a major league debut. Yes. So that's exciting. I saw the Marlins ran into Michael Waqa. He's not still pitch. I cannot believe Michael wocka is silver Nino's two nights ago. By the way, I went to the Marlins game two days ago. I'd like to give a shout out to the game hosts are really great like date like Mike Bianca, man. I just messed. They have to Miami admit I went there, and I. On us. That's what about the engaged Bruno Marlins. But here's the thing, we'll just so much energy. Like even when the team is losing by a lot. They're still like, hey, everybody can get excited time. And this. Yeah. Yeah. Three outs in the fifth inning through five time one lucky row every game win scuff is he does..

"Is there any better team that we could have gotten for her knocks like I know Mike's probably think in the Browns we had them last year? No, I am happy with a one year of the Browns we can always do the sequel little later on plus a there those league rules, you can't do back to back years. And there's only a handful of teams that are eligible, this was by far the best of the options and it is, it's sort of like a natural sequel to what we saw last season Browns, because last season, it was, like nobody over the age of twenty three and you have to be a characteristic cat this season is like nobody under the age of thirty. And you have to be an even bigger characterists dolphins fan. I think I'd rather see the raiders than the dolphins. Just I just wanna see Gruden in his element yet Gruden you get into Neo Brown. You get incognito. This is has birthed Antonio Brown. Perfect. I, I know that marshawn Lynch is kind of retired. Maybe we can talk him back into it. They're you know, they're going to do some sort of peace on marshawn Lynch anyway, the Mike Mayock Gruden dynamic, I didn't even think about me. Mark davis. Mark data site. This is this better. I did not even think about my I was just focusing on grew non Asli. So I think hard knocks actually had a few really slow seasons. And then I think the lesions yeah. Well, no. Isn't it? Okay. All right. It just be season now because sometimes you do just the first day works if it's funny, you can it's up for interpretation each one. I can do sell sometimes times. Words of S agent, clearly, I'm biased because I'm a Browns fan, but I do think last season hard knocks kind of came back a little bit. It was an entertaining season. And there was some kind of slower ones that weren't as good the Texans were bad, bad Texans. Yeah. Was JJ watt was obnoxious even the dolphins one wasn't very good. The one with Philbin. Yeah it's terrible. Yeah, it was it was pretty bad. So hard knocks came back last here. And this is a one two punch with Brown's last year. We were super interesting and the raiders who are one of the more interesting teams insert in terms of character dynamics in that entire organization owner on down to some of the players. I'm so excited about it. This is huge hundred Benko yesterday. You guys went to Fogo to child had Father's Day event. Well, I certainly ate a lot. Kristen not eat a lot. Unfortunately, I, I mean, you know, I just, you know, I try to keep it a little light. I had to play softball after I didn't go ham. But I you know that, that garlic steak man. Oh, oh my God. I some point I just stopped saying what is because, you know, they come up. They all looks meets look kinda similar. But everything I'm just like sure, I'll take a piece. Let's do this. And then I had way too much on my plate. So it ROY saying because at one point I didn't finish everything because I had literally twelve Laura grab your plate and he no. But I was getting I was getting mocked by Wittingham ROY because I didn't finish every nickname on the show is fat Craig, but I've got a people would wrongfully assume that you're the one on the show that could eat the most. Right. That is most certainly ROY. Yeah. By a country mile or share. That's right. But ROY definitely Glenfiddich also sponsor. Thank, thank you. Boy wasn't driving. So ROY definitely took advantage of that sponsor that he's day off for damn sure. It was clear there yesterday. No, she did not make it was napping in her grandparent's house did not wake her up. That's a smart. But it went well, it was real cool. It's a it's an intimate event. It's not like Jay Wakefield. Some of these other things we've done. It's just like insane. This one, you know, twenty five and guests those little just some one on one time one time. Dan, was there. It's an awkward hugs awkward pictures. You do as you do. Billy a few like. Yeah. But last week we were hot on the Marlins. Yes. And I haven't heard much about the Marlins in a few days. They've lost five straight..
Lyft Going Public: The Dual-Class Share Dilemma
"Lift the company is busy filing all kinds of papers. And as part of that they announced that they are planning to issue to kinds of common stock class. An Cosby Matt LeVine is a columnist at Bloomberg opinion off of my worst cost really. Yeah. Well, it's like the normal one. And then class b is the weird one the stall key by on your e-trade account class-a stock? It's your plain vanilla stock class b stock. Well, no difference really on the face of it usually worth the same price part of the same company, but one key difference class as talk has one vote per share and Cosby's talk has twenty per share in the case of lift one share of class as stock get you one vote and one share of class b stock gets you twenty votes twenty votes, and that is today's indicator twenty that is the number of votes as single share of lift class b stock will get you would get a B class stock founders in the case of lift cO, finders Logan green and John Zimmer and nobody else. So what is up with these class b shares? Why would the founder of a company do this? Used to be that way us hope sock was like you had to give up voting control your company, but that's not what he wants. He wants to keep control of his company, and it turns out because is willing to give him money, you know, for stock without demanding control of his company. And so he takes it takes so back in the day. You took your company public you sold shares to the public, and there was this tradeoff on the one hand, you all this money on the other hand, you give up some control of your company. So if the shareholders did not like what you were doing they could vote you out you could be out on your ear. Also, if you wanted to do something fancy with the stock they could stop you so CEO's, especially Texas started using these class b shares to create stalk with the super voting par giving themselves a ton of votes. So that they can maintain control of the company they get all the money, and they keep all the power a win win. And then the situation the power never trickles down to the people. If the finders sell their class, b shares the buyer of those shares. Does not get that twenty vote deal. The shares usually convert to class eight years a crummy single vote. So why would investors put up with this? I asked Matt living this question. And he said there were a couple of main reasons the first is that these companies were just so hot people wanted a piece of them so badly and investor said, okay, and they surrendered their usual rights. But there was another reason a lot of investors started to see it as a plus when Facebook went public CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, a tiny group of insiders got a ton of these class b superhero shares which essentially meant the Mark Zuckerberg had complete control of Facebook. And when the company went public the Wimpy class A-Shares traded really really, well, it was super popular. But Mark zuckerberg's outsized power. Also, ended up paying off for investors because good example of the successes. Mark Zuckerberg did a lot of move that were kind of look like weird corporate. Governance like, you just went and bought, you know, whatever it's like little oversight sort of felt like a sort of a company that was not like run by best principles of corporate, governance, necessarily, and it turned out to be wildly successful for shareholders. And they put loads of money, right? Because he actually was good at it says a lot of investors, especially investors in tech companies with these celebrity genius, inventor of CEO types, actually started to really like the fact that shares of stock came with no voting muscle became kind of like a selling point like don't worry. No, slutty small-minded investors going to step in and Swart, you know, the geniuses vision. Which is this is actually as you. It's protecting your investment in no way. Because like what you're really signing up for is Mark Zuckerberg and the only way to make sure that you're getting works to all the votes. Dougal Lincoln groupon. They old it. But when Snapchat went public Matt says that was kind of the peak for class b shares not. As a even weirder version, where public shareholders have no votes at all. And only the have any votes. Hey, why not let the suckers by the shares and not get any voting rights Snapchat? This moment, though, is when the markets kind of struck back at the whole class, b shares idea the keepers of some of these big indexes like the S and P five hundred decided enough was enough said, we're not going to list companies that have so called dual class shares and the excluded Snapchat. Now, this was a big deal because of index funds. Now, those are funds that are pegged to an entire index. For instance, the S and P five hundred so with the S and P five hundred goes up the index fund goes up, and if you have money in a 4._0._1._K a lot of that is probably in index funds. We are talking trillions of dollars and these index funds will not invest in your company if it's not listed on the index. So getting excluded from an index like the S and P five hundred means that you are. Leaving a lot of money on the table. But the index is like, okay, listen, we turn to blind eye to Facebook and Google, but Snapchat, you've gone too, far you want the money, you cannot keep all the power to. This is a breakdown of the whole system you wanna take people's money. You have to answer to them. And we're Matt LeVine heard this. He thought will is it jewel class. Shares are over the time has come to an end year ago. I would have said well, the fact that the indexes are down as early about fine for the continuing viability this, but no turns out. Along comes lift at the sides, no index funds for us. But so be it. This probably means that lift won't ever make it onto the S and P five hundred index, but they did this. Anyway, they said we want control so much the will willing to give up this a lot of money a lot of money the jewel share model class. A and class b shares not dead yet, extremely popular and becoming more popular among tech extremely unpopular and becoming more popular among big public investor's attention. That's why the indexes are dying because the public because behind more popular public investors like every comes to market once I do class stock, and it's terrible. And we hate it. And we got to do something about it was like one or two when it was like Facebook. It's like fine whatever, but every company has its come frustrating for investors. If your stock is hot enough, and if you are enough of a cult of genius techie type, you might just be able to have your. Go public and control it too. And in fact, there has been such crazy demand for shares of lift even though they're not available yet making money, and the companies actually losing money inspect it doesn't make anything that there's speculation that when the company goes public. It will actually exceed the twenty three billion dollar valuation that put on himself twenty three billion dollars. This is cold having your cake and eating it too.
