Real vs Urban Legends

"This podcast was inspired by mike. Who sent me an email. Asking are true mysteries of the pacific northwest. Nothing more than urban legends inspired by a book. I checked out from the rogue valley metaphysical library and trying to answer that question. The book was written by an authority. Who shall remain nameless. The book contains some events that are no more than a figment of someone or an urban legend. Like the dog that ate a tiny cell foam and every time someone called stomach would rain. Some were started by celebrities like mickey rooney claiming that he had influence walt disney to call his cartoon mouse mickey mouse. Then there's urban legend about elvis presley giving a harley davidson motorcycle to actor james dean. Well sorry. none of these happened before. I reveal my favorite urban legends. I need to explain how i separate real and true from something invented by a person with an ulterior motive or an urban legend occasionally. I do find a witness or participant to an event that can't be explained away and are willing to talk about it but that's the exception not the rule. Most people are reluctant. Admit that they saw ghost or heard strange laughter when they were home alone for fear of being ridiculed. When event is brought to my attention or intrigued by a story on the internet my search for sources begins. I'll start with the photograph of a pterodactyl that appeared on the internet that allegedly dates back to the american civil war in eighteen. Sixty four courting to the story behind the mystery. Image giant flying creature was shot down by soldiers around eighteen sixty four. near the city of vicksburg. The story says it's soldier said the creature was like some kind of unknown bird monster in a surprising. Twist of the story. A second photograph appeared on the internet. That showed a similar scene. A pterodactyl surrounded by men in front of a barn. Now the people. I talked to when i contacted. Authorities said several newspapers in virginia said that one photograph in front of the barn was fake. Now if you drop me. A line kit k. chrome g mail dot com. I'll send you a copy of the two photographs. You can decide for yourself in my research. I found that the photograph of the pterodactyl matched one.

"Next to him and learn so much from him through all of it. The low i think would definitely be. It's been it's been difficult being far away from my family and all of our friends back home in texas we really created a really amazing community of friends and anna broncos am i family were all super close. I will never lived more than like two and a half hours away from my mom and dad. So you know going from having a huge network of family and friends serena onto not knowing anybody. That was really hard. And it's taken the we've been living here now for almost four years. I'd say it's taken about four years to really feel like drained goes home just because we had such such deep roots in texas and still do those roots are always there. Yeah good you've been able to stay connected. Oh yeah oh yeah yeah. What about you travel. I would definitely echo katie. It wasn't really part of the original plan that she would be working time in the dealership like we knew we're going into this as coronas and but but being there fulltime was not was not the original business plan after about six months. I just realized i was talking. I just couldn't. I was working fourteen hours a day. And she said. I'm a mike alongside you and really roll up my sleeves and dive into the day to day stuff and it could and probably one of two ways and we've been really really blessed now of course we still have her days but it's been so neat to watch her grow in her. Competence is a leader and everything. And also i just getting into serve our team. Our customers absolutely amazing in their high would be our second full year in business. We came in and out of six hundred plus dealers in the country by harley. Davidson motor company's were our reiterate seventh in the country in two thousand nineteen and then just seeing the growth of our our our chambers and seeing them go personally professionally and being a part. I mean we've almost doubled the revenue in in three full years of business from where he bought the dealership to where it is today. Like we we pretty much doubled. The top line revenue. And it's been you know it's been awesome journey and i think the low is. I didn't have as as tight of a family network and and you know. I love my mom and dad. I mean just amazing amazing capable. We weren't we weren't as close knit as katie was with her family. And so you know for me. I think the low is. I totally respect and appreciate how much she misses her family. And mrs that closeness in So just wishing you know. Wishing that i could i could close that gap a katie wasn't so far from her family. Would having her so far from her family would be kind of low. What what would you guys say. Two other couples that are considering going in business together. Because like you said it could've gone one of two ways not for everybody. What are some of the questions that you guys worked through in coming to. That decision even talked about it was survival. You know it really was is like wait. We've got okay. We're gonna to take both of us. And i think any advice i'd give other couples are thinking about going into business together or is making sure that you know that they're their friends to you. Know your life partner here and you share and the responsibility is their life and raising kids and stuff. But i think having a friendship is really important because it unites creates the trust and the respect. Our you know. I have the utmost respect for cover because of one his knowledge of the business. You know he's already been with harley davidson for so many years. So when i joined on i knew that i definitely not the expert here so knowing to take my shoes and my leadership from him order to do while myself so. I think it's important to have that friendship and respect mutual respect for each other and also know when you need to leave the office and close the door in their termini. you know. They're definitely days. Where one of us is not in the best mood and there might be some high level things drama going on or whatever and i just noticed they out of his office on those as you know whatever. We gotta discuss what happened later. You know. it's we try to really separate organ home Which is we can accept at three o'clock when the kids get out of school and they usually end up coming back to work with me then. It's a big family of lay around. But yeah no i i. I agree with everything she said you know having boundaries. I think that's important that in it's impossible to keep keep it from crossing over but you know when you're at home trying to focus on on home and the the marriage and the kids and and that and not always bringing work home with you or or even bringing your home life to work in china keep kind of keep those a little bit separate There's no perfect equation for that. But one thing is mixture. You know each other you know katie and i. We've been to some rough times in our marriage before we moved up here and we had you know we had a few years of really kind of working things out and like really getting to know who we were deep down without like all the stuff on the surface and you know having that friendship that katie mentioned understanding each other's boundaries and just even the level of respect that made it blows me away. Katie comes to every one of our meetings. We have a weekly owners meeting in comes with an agenda. Like i might. China told the rest of my managers are mike. Why can't she's the one person that doesn't have to come with an agenda but she comes prepared and is always really respectful of our time. And we've got a big note on our twenty twenty one meeting agenda template that says works not not home or something that were not personal to make sure when we're talking about work and it always happens always bring something in about a. What about the kids ski class this weekend. But the reason for that is is unknown. That that rule. Because i'm not there. Fulltime might trevor's nine if our rene i've never about eight to two thirty is when the kids get out of school. That's we go do all the kids staff you know. They signed Ski team some the hours that i'm in the office are so crucial so I try to not talk about home stuff. Unless it's really something pressing and important. I need to focus on work on there. I don't fall behind and so and the gender thing. I'm just a taipei. I so i can't help that. He understands that and he's also a super great helper with the kid. Everything outside of work. To and i think that's you know that's important. Things is as well if you're going to hear husband and wife and you're going to work together eating to share the responsibilities outside of work to whereas when i was when i was staying at home with my kids. Yeah yeah i- dinner cleaned the kitchen. I i took care of those home. Home responsibilities insurer helped but it was mostly me but now we really are a team. So if i cook dinner he cleans dishes. you know. We both shared laundry. And we do all of that.

Harley-Davidson Tries to Find Its Way--Again

"Years the harley davidson motorcycle brand has been well a little lost. Its us motorcycle. Sales have dropped about forty percent since their peak a decade ago and while the strategy in recent years was to try to appeal to a broader base of writers the company's attempts at turning things around including the recent rewire initiative and the newer. One called hard wire seem more focused on getting leaner and doubling down on the company's core customer base a few years ago harley davidson began its quest to woo younger customers. It's boomer customer. Base was aging. And let's face it. It's tougher to write a hog with a bum knee in back but younger customers aren't choosing motorcycles for their cool factor. A cnbc report says instead. They want ease of transportation so they look for more practical brands like honda. Even harleys bowl plans to get two million more riders. Taking to the road didn't seem to be working. They opened riding schools and launch the electric livewire motorcycle. You may remember telling you about that. One with its thirty thousand dollars starting cost well. None of that work then. Of course the pandemic hit last year. The company closed plants in march. It restarted manufacturing in. May but the company cut shipment to dealers by seventy percent through the end of the year according to business insider and what about customers renewed interest in outdoor recreation which spurred sales of big ticket items like boats and swimming pools last summer. Well it helped. But it didn't lift harley sales enough to overcome its losses in october new. Ceo yuck insights took out the scissors and began making cuts international production gone. So we're about a third of the models in the company's product lineup he encouraged dealerships to close and he trimmed the workforce to including product teams developing new motorcycle models. The wall street journal reports the orange and black brand is veering out of many international markets and focusing on roughly forty target areas in north america. Europe and asia. It also spun off its electric bicycle. Operations and entered into a distribution agreement with indian motorcycle. Company hero harley will be shipping fewer bikes to dealerships making supply limited that may be part of the strategy to especially as the weather gets warmer in motorcycle. Buying season begins. But we'll targeting smaller core base of customers who love big heavy hogs work in a world that increasingly wants sustainable economical and even sharable electric vehicles harley. Davidsons team may but investors don't seem sure stock prices dropped after the company's new five year strategic plan was unveiled revenue and profit targets were smaller than many expected bloomberg reports. And well. there just wasn't a lot of substance there as one analyst put. A lot of this is what we're going to do but not how we're going to do it. Plus electric motorcycles have momentum. Right now. The us jessica tended tax credits for electric motorcycles. Through the end of this year and last week. Electric motorcycle manufacturer. Zero motorcycles announced a partnership with motorcycle rental in tour company eagle writer. The deal may zero motorcycles. Part of eagle riders premium brand lineup with full-size electric motorcycles available for rent in five locations immediately. Even the name of harleys turnaround plan. Hard wire seems a little old school a wireless era but then again that may be the point harley as focused on its traditional audience will soon see whether the plan pays off where they've gotten their wires crossed

How to Invest: Meaning and the 3 Circles

"How to invest meaning and the three circles by Phil town of rule one investing dot com. Investing for beginners. Circle of competence. The most important thing. I can tell you about becoming a great investor is to focus on your circle of competence. What that means is that area of the world that you live in that, you actually know quite a lot about for most beginning investors. We sort of think we don't know anything about anything I know I certainly felt like that when I started off. But in fact, my teacher told me to start by looking for meaning in each investment. Invest in a business that means something to you. Try to buy businesses that really mean something to you to start with, I have to find out more about me. What actually means something to me what do I actually know something about To figure it out I, want to look at the three circles exercise. Choose Industries you're interested in. What we're doing is loading in industries where we already have a lot of knowledge I'm pretty good at computer software and services as well as Internet hardware, real estate, stuff, clothing, personal items, automotive, and getting those off of this list. If I see things that I made really already know quite a lot about like, let's say leisure and media recreation entertainment hobbies. I just read the description and you can see some of the stocks are in. That category, for example, storm and Ruger and company they make guns and I like guns. So I'm adding Leisure and media to my list. Now, we'll see that leisure and media is on my list and I'm on to the next part of the three circles, which is talent circle to add to that. So you go through each of these circles and simply save and continue by putting on items that you know you already know a lot about. How to choose a business? That is right for you? The first one is passions. The second one is talent. What are you really talented at? What do you know a lot about what can you be world class at and the third one is where you spend your money. So you start to look for things that are in all three of these save them and the program will go out and find industries that matched the talent passions and money circles that you already put up. Now you can see this has come up with a pretty darn good list so it started. OFF THAT I wasn't sure I'd have any companies I might know anything about and it turns out. There are many many companies that I know a lot about for example, let's go over and look at recreational vehicles that sounds like something I might know a bit about what I get is a list of all the companies that are in the recreational vehicle industry group. You can see it's got Harley Davidson and they make motorcycles polaris makes no machines and four wheelers Arctic cat make snow machines winnebago makes those big Winnebago's right. I already know something about these companies. These are companies that I have some connection with in my life. Why we care about understanding a business. So. Why do we care about understanding the business? Well, in one if we buy one share of a company, it's as if we bought the entire company when I buy one share of something I, feel like I own the entire business. Investing, tip the my rule. One Way to think about this is that imagine that my uncle gave me a billion dollars to go out and buy a company with. But the rules were that only get to by one company and that company would be the only way I, make money the whole rest of my life, and if that company went under I would have to live on welfare. So I by every company that I look at it as if it's the only company, my uncle will let me by this is a great rule. You should think about it, I, call it my uncle rule. Investing tip the ten ten rule. I also have what's called a ten ten rule. It says, I'm not going to own a company for ten minutes unless I'm willing to own it for ten years. So if I'm going to buy a company and be willing to own it for ten years, he'd better be something I like and matches my value systems I'm passionate about it I. Love It. I'm talented at it and I spend my money in it. Conclusion. Those are the things that make me connect to my investments and the more I connect with my investments the more I own it as if I owned the whole business, the more I understand the meaning of the business, the better investor I'm going to be.

"harley davidson" Discussed on Marketplace Morning Report with David Brancaccio

"Why it matters just ask your smart speaker to play the marketplace minute or find it wherever you get your podcasts A ruling on whether apple has paid its fair share of tax in Ireland could be headed to Europe's top court live from London. This is the marketplace morning report from the BBC. World Service Victoria Craig Good Morning today's the deadline for the European Commission to appeal a lower court's landmark ruling back in July that apple did not have to pay back more than sixteen billion dollars in tax advantages to Ireland shameless coffee a lecturer in the Department of Economics at University College Cork explains why such an appeal matters not just to apple but other big multinational companies. There's not so much about the rules. And I earned tax rate of Ireland and is about the specifics off the applicators and other companies you'd be looking at this from the point of view of weird European commissioners going likely to take other similar cases. It's unlikely to result in significant changes informed tax rules but I do think that the overall approach of your meek mission this use of competition policy to try and address what they see as issues the taxes will be of interest remember this isn't the tax investigation. This is the competition investigation and the competition watchdog. Margaret investitures the her legacy really raining in big tech sort of rests. On this decision, doesn't it? Yes. She's little of a political capital in this approach and went for my call. The Big Bang approach when it came to apple, there would have been other options available as she's made a lot of the announcement the fact of trying to told Big Tech and bring them into line I. She's unlikely to let this drop it from a political perspective I. Think an appeal is likely as much as a legal perspective. How quickly do you think we could get a decision on this or I think it will take a number of years today we have the announcement hooded. EP would take place. Then you'll have pleased that both sides of May, it'll take a number of years before the final Judgment Street. So I think it could be two or three years shame coffee from the university. College Cork thanks for your time problem checking the numbers. Now, global shares are taking a breather today after a roller coaster week that saw Asia notch its worst five day stretch since March benchmarks across Europe or little changed the euro is on track for its worst week since the end of March as worries continue to mount about the economic impact, a second wave of corona virus we'll have. Harley. Davidson has decided to pack up and end its manufacturing operations in India. The world's biggest motorcycle market that's because the company which opened a plant there in twenty eleven has struggled to compete with other local and international brands as the BBC's Nicole and under reports the decision to exit India east part of Harley, Davidsons global restructuring strategy where they're narrowing their focus to call markets really struggled to find a foothold in India setting less than three thousand units per year, and it's also a setback. For. The movie governments pay to attract KLUBER manufacturing because it comes in the backdrop of Toyota saying it expand in the country General Motors pulling out in two thousand seventeen Ford bearing operations as well. At global automakers really struggled in India due high taxes both vehicles as well as fuel and high import duties as been a major flashpoint between me and trump governments. In recent years, trump had famously used Harley as an example to point fingers Indian say that it was the king of high tariffs. Run by I'm the BBC's nickel. For Marketplace, the Tokyo Olympics might be postponed until next year but the president of the International Olympic Committee or the IOC is staying optimistic in a two day series of press events continuing this morning Thomas Bach argued sports around the world have come back and shown events can continue safely even without a covid nineteen vaccine millions of dollars are on the line though not just in infrastructure investment but sponsorship deals as Simon. Chadwick professor at the Raisin Sport Industry at Emily Business School. When it comes to sponsorship it's a really complex picture because there are different kinds of sponsors involved and the very top level big global brands that have contracts with the IRC, not just for the Tokyo Games. But for lots of Olympic Games and one could imagine that these sponsors are going to be working in conjunction with the IFC to look at different approaches, different solutions because inevitably for these big brands they. Pay A. Lot of money they want to return on investment but more than that. They have a long-term interested relationship with the IOC. What they won't want to do is they won't want to jeopardize that relationship with the Olympic Movement because presumably that looking towards Beijing twenty, twenty two and beyond to Paris a maybe even further than that, and so they'll be looking for a collaborative way forwards beneath that what you have. Aw something in the region of seventy Japanese companies and brands that are associated with the Tokyo Games and maybe more difficult to convince them not to unilaterally withdraw. Have you seen any sponsors flee yet because of the difficult business environment as we know, it doesn't matter how big or how small you are. Coronavirus has dealt a serious blow to nearly every industry this year and just this week we saw Qantas and. It's thirty year sponsorship of Australia's rugby team. So this isn't unprecedented is at the moment I'm unaware of any withdrawals, but that surely has to be on the radar of the icy because bronze across the world looking at budgets that questioning whether sponsorships offer good value for money in some stock and simple instances, their sponsors that have gone out of business across the world of sports, and so no matter how sensitive the. Trust manages the harsh reality for everybody right now is the some of the sponsorship deals potentially are endangering may withdraw and right may well be that between now and next summer that may be instances west sponsors simply go out of Business Cook Budgets withdrawal can they survive that I think the I ac- can survive it's it's. That is Asian. The operates in a very different way to the businesses in the sense that it's revenue generating cycles heavily skewed towards the years when they have events, and so I think the I is already set up to account for this kind of peculiar mode of operation. It does have long term trusted partners that are paying an awful lot of money, but a logan stations, all sponsors, Mrs old browns are exposed to a certain extent and I think one of the things that the IOC is trying to do is to make sure that the game does go ahead so that the contracts with these big sponsors are in. Jeopardy in any way professor Simon Chadwick thanks for breaking this down. Thank you. Finally while travel might still be just a memory for some of us. One airline is bringing the in flight experience. Home. Australia's Qantas, is auctioning off a thousand of its fully stocked bar carts used on its now retired seven forty, seven jets for nearly a thousand bucks. You get forty mini bottles of red and white wine one bottle of champagne to amenity kits and said of PJ's with a throw blanket all the benefits of a cozy in flight.

"Part of like, Oh, I'm in America let me a Harley Davidson and go right on the open road. In America. You rival of a new president with a fixation on American manufacturing. Seemed like good news for Harley company executives were invited to the white. House. Less than a month after president trump's inauguration it looked like the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Safe Ride. But being a symbol of, America, turned out to be a problem for Harley. When trump began trade wars with other parts of the world in two thousand, eighteen when trump imposed twenty, five percent tariffs on European Steel and Europe was looking for a way to strike back a wanted to hurt something that represented America, and in retaliation Harley became a hostage or upon in this game and Europe said, okay. If you're going to do that to us, we're going to place a tariff on imported. Harley motorcycles that tariff would have added thousands of dollars to the cost of buying a Harley in Europe but only if that Harley was made in America. So. Harley started making more bikes in Thailand, to sidestep the tariff, which meant trump's effort to protect American manufacturing allow Ronald Reagan in one thousand, nine hundred to have the opposite effect and that is what created the range from the president made a lot of people angry. Harley. Davidson please build those beautiful motorcycles in the USA please. Okay. Don't get cute with. US. Don't get. Cute. So. They of went from being kind of darling of trump because they represent. American manufacturing in history and heritage to in his is not supporting the narrative and his trade policy. So that caused some brand trauma. I would say other Harley writers that are trump supporters because I think that is one of the main values of the brand of why people want to ride them as they say, why WanNa buy American. So anything that kind of insults or dense that image is bad for them. Build them in the USA. Customers won't be happy if you don't. So. Harley found itself paying a price for being treasured piece of Americana, and at the same moment, it also found itself paying the price for its longtime romance with the Baby Boom Generation. The boomers who long to take to the high with Peter Fonda haven't abandoned Harley but they're causing the company problems in a few ways because boomers are its core customer. Harley caters to them almost exclusively, and at this point that means making huge comfy touring bikes those bikes are more expensive to buy, which is good for harleys profit margins, but they're not a winning play in the long term. You know those big bikes you might see on the highway looks like you've got enough to put your luggage in it and like the big. Radio stuff in the front those are not popular with millennials and younger people, and so that's been existential dilemma that Harley has been grappling with for at least a decade. baby-boomer boomer motorcyclists keep getting older some have quit writing. Some have already gone to that motorcycle rally in the sky. either. Way Harley can't count on their business forever. But because writers over fifty are still so crucial to Harley sales and because the margins on those pricey boomer bikes are as padded as the seats Harley has been desperate to hang onto older customers. That has a downside. Easy rider thing getting stale. Younger, writers prefer cheaper sportier bikes and Harley hasn't focused enough on that segment of the business to make it work. The result has been an accelerating death spiral. The beginning of two thousand twenty saw the worst sales numbers in sixteen years, and that was before the pandemic when dealerships were shuttered. Those dismal results lead Harley CEO to step down and a longtime board member to step up. His name is Johan sites and he's cut from different cloths than previous Harley. CEOS he collects art plays classical guitar. He's an environmentalist maybe most surprising. He's German the first non-american to lead. Harley. zeitz comes from the footwear industry and he's famous for lifting Puma from bargain bin Sneaker to stylish fashion brand his first call with Harley investors. This spring felt like a breath of fresh air for my observations over the last two months. It is clear we at the critical time in our history that requires significant changes to the company. My key inside are as follows. He just has a lot of conviction behind what he says he's got a plan is clear on confident in the markets just Like. Why they got finally like somebody who knows what they're doing I think that was kind of the reaction that investors had. Harley boosters are hoping that you'll can sites is marketing a plum can do the same thing it did for Puma, give them more brand some new cachet. He's a retail guy, a lot of the other CEO's at Harley remanufacturing geyser industrial they know how to fix production and know how to make the manufacturing run more efficiently. But when it came to understand the dynamics of retail I, think he is really good at that, and that's maybe a strength where might have been a bit of a weak spot in the former CEO as isis short-term play has been to cut costs and slow down production. He's eliminating more than five hundred jobs he needs to get harleys bleeding under control. But in the longer term, he has a bigger problem. How can he reshape harleys brand? So it can appeal to people under fifty and who will those new younger customers beat. So. They are China reach younger people but not a twenty year old who can't afford the bike I've seen on some of their social media channels. They had one guy who was like looked like he was South Asian and he was a doctor and I like that is like their dream. Harley. Writer of the future. Not just like the white guy with tattoos but they WANNA get people of color with professional incomes who can afford their bikes in the future and Mickey it cool with that set. Part of this will be about marketing and image shaping but part about making new products that these new customers really want Hurley's I. Stab is the livewire. It's an amazing machine in many respects, an electric powered motorcycle that goes from zero to sixty faster than any bike harley is made before but starting at thirty thousand dollars, it's at least three times more expensive than most sporty entry level bikes and it's a radical departure from the gasoline. So divide that Harley spent more than a century cultivating. Reconciling, the electric bike with the Harley brands little tough. It doesn't quite seem on brand for Harley you know with it's like Warren growling combustion engine at just. That fit their image. I think it's a real marketing challenge y'all can. He thinks it's great because you know he says who would ever think that are highly writer would electric bike. But when you ride it, you feel it it's totally Harley. Agrees. With that it's quiet and I think the people that want growl or always gonNA warmth the growl. This episode was produced by Jess Miller with help from Oshawa Solutia, technical. Direction.

"But knievel did give the museum some genuine artifacts from his career as a stunt performer including the nineteen seventy-two Harley Davidson xr seven, fifty on which she performed some of his most famous jumps. That x seven fifty is one of the crown jewels of the Smithsonian's motorcycle collection. But it's not only Harley Davidson that Paul has acquired, which makes sense. Harley is a story brands like Levi's our Coca Cola one that comically represents America to itself into the rest of the world. The Harley was actually given to the museum by a staff person back in nineteen forty seven. Paul garber was the first curator of what's now the Aerospace Museum He bought the bike after World War One in nineteen eighteen, it was used. It's a nine hundred thirteen model Harley Davidson about five horsepower and bought it for general transportation in one, thousand, nine hundred, and then started working the Smithsonian nineteen. Twenty. Use It as as his personal transportation and daily commuter years. Paul Johnston is an avid motorcyclist himself. He has a deep appreciation for harleys and he's followed the various ups and downs of the company mostly downs lately as you probably know, Harley is struggling a little bit. They just laid off several hundred staff to try and stay afloat. Davidson is hitting a major speed bump. Its most reliable customers have gotten old and newer generations don't seem as entranced by the Harley Mystique. Meanwhile. Standoff with President Trump has left Harley off balance scrambling to maintain its made in America image at home while fighting off tariffs from abroad. All this has left the company, a desperate crossroads, but it may have found a promising new direction. Earlier this year Harley brought in a new CEO replacing a twenty five year veteran of the company with a confident new leader from an unlikely industry. So their new CEO. had been like a footwear CEO. He came from Puma as a motorcycle purist are do you have any concerns about what he might do to this classic? Company? He might save it who knows. Can hardly read engines. Sore over nine school buses, stick the landing and recapture its past glory.

"Good afternoon you can. How are you today? I'm very good high Iran from America. You're in new. Mexico is that right. Yes shattering at home because our officers are still closed until later this month. Okay and tell us a little bit about where you're at in New Mexico. You have a home there. I know but you. You spend your time in quite a few different places. So why did you choose New Mexico as a place to sit this quarantine out because Just being appointed to the position of senior and president of Davidson then the company's movable key and to and I'm only one time zone away from Milwaukee so I'm headed. Us publicly listed company now. And and hence. Why I'm a US together with God it well that I guess. Pratt for practical reasons that makes perfect sense though. I hear that New Mexico's also very beautiful and I can imagine that doesn't hurt. It certainly doesn't enter this still lots of opportunity to ride a motorbike as well. You know. Yuck and before we get to the topic at hand I think you know that This week on the business of fashion. We've really been focusing all of our content and discussions around building a responsible business so it strikes me as very interesting that you've taken this new role as the president and CEO Partly Davidson because apart from the fashion industry and maybe the Energy Industry the transport industry is one of the most damaging industries in the world when it comes to our planet and so I know you have this incredibly long and sustained career in focusing your professional time and energy on building more responsible sustainable businesses. So you can you tell us a little bit about you know why this opportunity at Harley Davidson was so appealing to you. Well first of all because I believe that sector leaders and iconic brands have a tremendous opportunity to contribute to a change in consumer behavior. As a whole and I've done that in my boss lie that coma as both carrying also helping them said business. The Independent initiatives at the time being called. Ppo hold now carrying. And I just believe that sector is an iconic brands have that opportunity and we should use it as a as a way not just to be more responsible but the actually looking at it as an opportunity for jobs in the market. You're seen as a kind of turnaround specialist. You know. You've gone in from a very young age at Puma. I think you were the youngest. Ceo in Germany of a public company. At that time. And you took Puma and really help to not just turn it around from a business standpoint but also really inject some of these principles That we've been focusing on this week at B. O. F. into that business so I guess you know in the first instance someone who's operated in this space for a very long time. I mean how is it that you defined what a responsible business means now but a sustainable socially responsible business means how do you articulate that to people in your teams or elsewhere when you're trying to kind of gain further? Bienne that this is the way you more businesses need to be thinking your lipid limit. Stop with the first part of your statement rather than Christian and calling me a turnaround specialist. I would look at myself as as a change. Agent more than a turnaround specialists and the foster. The world changes the boy. I need to be a change agent and an still change it. What you do in Your Business and I guess ozone our private life if you look at how the world has changed especially in the last few months so I don't look at myself of turnaround specialist but somebody that's challenge the status quo and to come back to your question is when you when you look at the State of planet. Today we recognize that we are taking more resources away from old planet leaving if irreparable damage that means we have to change and hence we cannot just look at shareholder. The value growing a business any longer but we have to look at it responsibly. But at the same time also as an opportunity and how we can actually do better as a business but doing so by keeping our stakeholders robin just showers minded. Our Planet is key stakeholder because without our planet we won't be able to function so that's clear and then the corona virus crisis hit in the last few months and businesses throughout various sectors. Have been hit hard including Harley Davidson the industry that we work in the fashion industry. I mean how. How do you see this kind of responsible? Business thinking in light of the crisis that we're now all experiencing both from kind of public health and an economic standpoint. I'd say even going into the crisis you start to see change. In a lot of companies more and more companies that may be compared to five years ago where it was handful of select leaders and companies that we're promoting a more responsible way of doing business And I think this is only going to accelerate. I think investors are asking the question that was one of the missing links in the past that quite often investors. We're not really looking. Yes G. or sustainability as a as a an important Harrasment based on which one should just judge investment. That has been happening. I actually see this accelerating post-crisis that you can make the business case for a planet And you can say what we experiencing now with. The virus is just a false way of experiencing climate change that will happen over decades but the resolves is creeping change or planet which will have negative impacts on how live operate and work hence something. We need to get our hands around on. This virus is is a testament for a needed cross change in order to deal with a much bigger crisis that the would it be affecting our lives wrong world in twenty thirty years to call. So we've been talking this week as I mentioned about. You know the idea that. The fashion industry needs to clean up. Its Act and you have the very unusual position now of WHO's operated right at the very heart of the fashion industry as you mentioned both at home on caring and I know you stepped out of the industry some time ago but I'm sure as an observer and you know someone who was kind of closely embedded in this industry previously. You've been watching and I'm curious to understand your like. How do you see the fashion industry now? In light of this need for the industry to clean up its act and you know some of these things that you were talking about for years. These principles around sustainability and creating a business that simply extract resources from the planet and exploit people businesses that really found a way of operating while respecting these different stakeholders. I mean as a as a as a former insider now an outsider. What are your thoughts now on the fashion industry on this journey of of of kind of shaking things up when I look at every crisis in opportunity. It's an opportunity to really look at your own south. It's an opportunity to look at Your Business and how you operate and say what can we the essentially change to adjust our says to the new noma coming out of this crisis. I would say it's it's a given that they will be do a which is affecting our lives which is effective way effecting the way we we by the way we triple. A. And our consciousness about critically shes of our world advising domestically I think that's if businesses don't ask themselves that question you know you would be history of rather than the future attempts to fashion industry. I always believe that you need to embed sustainability into the DNA of Your Business and of your brand. You don't want to be the one shouting. We are sustainable. Be less understandable and others Jimmy. It's a definition of quality and a new way of looking at what is quantity in the future versus what was deemed the poss. When our Resources Ltd I would just simply say as quantities. Such an important driver luxury and desirability. If you're not sustainable. You don't actually operates with quality products that that's the new definition for me. That embed sustainability in every decision. You make us a business as a business leader as design as a manufacturer and and we need to look at this very seriously at and not just a setup sustainability departments that only scratched the surface but actually embed the word sustainability into our day to day operation.

How Building Community Can Supercharge Your Business

"Well communities can be very powerful force in helping to grow your company but how do you harness them here to show us how Jono Bacon again. Who's the leading community? Imagine Strategic Consoling Speaker and author of a book called people powered how communities can supercharge your business brands and teams his previously wrote the best selling book the art of Community Jones the founder of the primary annual conference for community leaders and managers call the Community Leadership Summit Jona welcome to the show. Thank you various great to be here. So let's first define our terms when you're talking about community do you mean in real real life ones or virtual ones are both I think it's both The way I look at it in this essentially three models but communities a-this that we can think of the first is what I refer to consumer to be the people who get together because they shared interests such as Star Trek fans. Who took him by the show live along with the And then the second type is what I call champion. Which is why people go the extra mile? They wanted to write articles produced videos. They want what to do advocacy setup events But then the third type is what I call collaborative which is why people come together to build something and that could be either collaborating Britain around South West which is where the open source revolution. That's happened or it could be for example building applications that sit and in stores or some things so I it seems that people or more physically Iceland ever are these kinds of communities actually helping to bring people together. Absolutely I mean. I think what's really interesting. Is that historically people have been forming into communities for a number of years. I mean people get together and trolls and have book clubs and things like that but each each session each meeting that they would have nothing would happen in between and you know you just show up each week and what's happening. What's happened in the in the last five? To ten years with advent you know in the growth of technology is that now. We're able to fuse together. Physical and online worlds much more effectively than APP. So for example you can have physical meeting take get together and they they do talk and they network and they have mixes but then you can keep people connected through online forums and incentives and social media pieces like that so so. I'm finding that what's happening is. We're seeing this especially in business. The value of having an interactive relationship with your audience is more important uncalled than ever. I mean just today as we record this. Google is fish Two billion dollars and I think one of the main reasons for that is that it is not just. The manufacturer factual watches of exercise equipment. They built a huge community of people get together and exercise each each other. Make sure the backup so I think it's lowering the various people spend more time with each other another example as Peleton right. People are getting together at home but they're getting together together with their community to exercise. This is so when you talk about these. Three communities interest or become a champion around software is any one type of community stronger than the other. I don't think one's necessarily stronger but I think we've seen More examples and and the road is being traveled. mullets some of these teams for example with collaborative is what people get together to build. Something I mean one of the best examples that is open source. I mean we've seen is one such example Cuba nephews which is formed that runs. The cloud has brought together over two thousand software developers from over fifty competing companies to to build a platform that's completely open-source completely. Three towers how you know the way the world works in terms of the cloud. So that said there's a lot a lot of there's a lot of expertise that we also see on on the on the On the kind of the the consumer side we've seen so many people have been getting together into into the groups into events forums where they have a common interest where it's a little less proven is this fusion of Of of the insieme Marcus View from simple people being used products and how they blend together the coast and and the collaborative elements it'd be an online at the same time and and and this is where she were a really good example. They've built an enormous community of writers Online he will get together arriving together. The doing you know power trading and things like that but now they're swimming more and more into in person events as well and that is where. I think. We're seeing the evolution of community really starting to to grow is that you're saying is that people actually start as a community virtually and then they get to know each other than they wanna meet in person in many cases that's the case that the thing with virtual little courses that there's a very low bar entry you know all you really need is your cell phone and you can get connected whereas if you want to go and meet somebody in person then you gotta take time off my after go babysit. Say you've got trouble somewhere. So everybody liked with anything window shelters I and it's the same thing with communities you Kinda poke had through the door and you see what's going on and it becomes more and more compelling what happens is you didn't you didn't stop to To want to invest more movie a time enough into typically when people the events and then when people understand especially all the small business owners listening that creating a community attach. Your Business is so important because said time and time time again people no longer want to buy your stuff that WanNa just buy your product. Shove your services they really want to have an experience and if they have a community to support that experience Jono it really can get them to talk about Your Business and can really propel it where you never thought possible. Absolutely I mean the thing is I think it's easy easy to forget when we you know when you take away the screen. The computers the podcast everything. We are fundamentally animals and automobiles one of the key key things that we hunt for and we searched for is a sense of belonging is when you feel pop something. When you feel valued by a social grouping it's one of the reasons why people are you know Family oriented example. What happens when you build a community wrapped around your business? You have a relationship with your customers to write a product to them and you know. Hopefully you'll get a referral out of them and maybe some good reviews what happens. Is they feel author relationship with your organization and they and you get this amplifier effect. Where they need other customers by the consumers and it builds a sense of belonging and it's one of the reasons why salesforce Oracle sap built communities over a million uses and harley-davidson has got seven hundred rights local chapters all over the world because people are upset and it builds customer attention for years? So it's a very. It's a very powerful tool so joan. Of course the sixty four million dollar question we always want these vibrant active communities associated with business. How do you get started building a successful community so This is one of the reasons why I wrote my new book. People Pal it is is sadly I believe. There is no silver bullet for this. But what I've learned over the cost of my twenty one year career is that there are a set of consistent pieces that you should put in place so in a nutshell. The first thing we have to do. Is You have to decide which of those three and the committee models most aligned to those and sometimes it will be a combination of a couple of and the first thing we should do identify the value value. Like what is the value went to bring to the community mentor. You have to stop that and the value of your business will slow wants to identify and then what we do is we we build out and said the personas. So what are the types of community activity you WANNA say. They want people to write software. You won't be able to organize it. Do you want people to write documentation or obstacles we we we carve out this own as much as a sense of what are the things incentivize those people and how do we find them. So for example the wing which incentive device software engineer is very different to the way in which you would incentivize a designer for example to participate in your community. What what does it gives us kind of a blueprint reprint of the end game? And then we break that down into into a set of annual objectives were willing to stop focusing on how we accomplish those different paces and the the ingredients that sit in those objectives we'll be a multitude of different things for example content is a great way bringing people in social media the right way of bringing people in the one of the things we need to figure out is how people communicate with each other communities apple have like a clubhouse it could come and communication platform the key thing here is stop small and it's right. There are many clients that I've worked with over the years. Where they you know they bring me in? Because they kicked off this huge community initiative and they haven't got the traction Russian they wanted and in many cases. It's because it was overcomplicate. You need to do is the key trick is is start small focus the right kind of persona. They're so because in the right value and then tracked the right kind of metrics. It's a right over and over again because when you are able to read the data and how it impacts impacts your committee strategy you can then choose it very specific to what your business once. And that's kind of what I walked in and people powered so Jonah what are the pitfalls pitfalls though a bringing actually people into your work right so your clients.

Yeah Yeah I mean You know everything is a is a is a bunch of roses I think one of the pitfalls is it can open up some of the vulnerabilities of your business. You know if you think about how most businesses operate you have a hierarchy and instead of decision making and you'll customers and you'll uses they're they're placed in a very specific way in your world.

How Building Community Can Supercharge Your Business

"Well communities can be very powerful force in helping to grow your company but how do you harness them here to show us how Jono Bacon again. Who's the leading community? Imagine Strategic Consoling Speaker and author of a book called people powered how communities can supercharge your business brands and teams his previously wrote the best selling book the art of Community Jones the founder of the primary annual conference for community leaders and managers call the Community Leadership Summit Jona welcome to the show. Thank you great to be here. So let's first define our terms when you're talking about community do you mean in real real life ones or virtual ones are both I think it's both The way I look at it in this essentially three models but communities a-this that we can think of the first is what I refer to consumer to be the people who get together because they shared interests such as Star Trek fans. Who took him by the show live along with the And then the second type is what I call champion. Which is why people go the extra mile? They wanted to write articles produced videos. They want what to do advocacy setup events But then the third type is what I call collaborative which is why people come together to build something and that could be either collaborating Britain around South West which is where the open source revolution. That's happened or it could be for example building applications that sit and in stores such as so i. It seems that people or more physically Iceland ever are these kinds of communities actually helping to bring people together. Absolutely I mean I think what's really interesting is that historically people have been forming into communities for a number of years. I mean people get together and trolls and have book clubs and things like that but each each session each meeting that they would have nothing would happen in between and you know you just show up each week and what's happening. What's happened in the in the last five? To ten years with advent you know in the course if technology is that now we're able to fuse together. Physical and online worlds much more effectively than APP so for example you can have physical meeting. Take get together and they they do talk and they network and they have mixes but then you can keep people connected through online forums and incentives and social media pieces like that so so. I'm finding that what's happening is. We're seeing this especially in business. The value of having an interactive relationship with your audience is more important uncalled than ever. I mean just today as we record this. Google is fish Two billion dollars and I think one of the main reasons for that is that it is not just a manufacturer factual watches of exercise equipment. They built a huge community of people get together and exercise each each other. Make sure the backup so I think it's lowering the various people spend more time with each other another example as Peleton right. People are getting together at home but they're getting together together with their community to exercise. This is so when you talk about these. Three communities interest or become a champion around software is any one type of community stronger than the other. I don't think one's necessarily stronger but I think we've seen More examples and and the road is being traveled. mullets some of these teams for example with collaborative is what people get together to build. Something I mean one of the best examples that is open source. I mean we've seen is one such example Cuba nephews which is formed that runs. The cloud has brought together over two thousand software developers from over fifty competing companies to build a platform that's completely open-source completely. Three towers how you know the way the world works in terms of the cloud. So that said there's a lot a lot of there's a lot of expertise that we also see on on the on the On the kind of the the consumer side we've seen so many people have been getting together into into the groups into events forums where they have a common interest where it's a little less proven is this fusion of Of of the insieme Marcus View from simple people being used products and how they blend together the coast and and the collaborative elements it'd be an online at the same time and and and this is where telethon she were a really good example. They've built an enormous community of writers Online he will get together arriving together. The doing you know power trading and things like that but now they're swimming more and more into in person events as well and that is where I think we're seeing the evolution of community really starting to to grow is that you're saying is that people actually start as a community virtually and then they get to know each other than they wanna meet in person in many cases that's the case that the thing with virtual little courses that there's a very low bar entry you know all you really need is your cell phone and you can get connected whereas if you want to go and meet somebody in person then you gotta take time off my after go babysit. Say you've got trouble somewhere. So everybody liked with anything window shelters I and it's the same thing with communities you Kinda poke had through the door and you see what's going on and it becomes more and more compelling what happens is you didn't you didn't stop to To want to invest more time and effort into typically when people the events and then when people understand especially all the small business owners listening that creating a community attach. Your Business is so important because as I said time and time time again people no longer want to buy your stuff that Wanna just buy your product shove your services they really want to have an experience and if they have a community to support that experience Jono it really can get them to talk about Your Business and can really propel it where you never thought possible. Absolutely I mean the thing is I think it's easy easy to forget when we you know when you take away the screen the computers the podcast everything. We are fundamentally animals and automobiles one of the key. The things that we hunt for and we searched for is a sense of belonging is when you feel pop something.

Hurting Harley Broaches $1.6 Billion Turnaround Plan

"Uh from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business worse daily on this Thursday October third when you think of have motorcycles which brand POPs to mind it could be the one time king of the Hill Harley Davidson but that's more likely if you're obvious certain age for the past several years. Here's the muscle bound. Company has been fighting for the industry leadership at once took nearly for granted upstarts like it's revived former rival. Indian have been looming larger Juryman harleys rear view Mirrors Harley sales and profits have been sinking for the last five years and this quarter has been one of its worst with sales dropping almost eight and a half percent compared to a year ago last week. The company announced an aggressive expensive turnaround plan called more roads Harley Davidson it it intends to spend one point six billion dollars over the next four years to expand not only its own customer base but motorcycle riding in general it. Lynch produce new products especially its fleet of electric vehicles led by the livewire expand access around the globe build new smaller urban dealerships and create experiences experiences intended to introduce kids and young adults to the joys of writing ultimately Harley promises the more roads plan will increase harleys tribe from its existing assisting three million riders to four but analysts are quick to label the turnaround plan a tough uphill climb. The company blames its problems on a soft market for motorcycles and indeed. Americans bought three hundred seventy thousand motorcycles in two thousand sixteen. That's only half as many as they had ten years earlier. millennials especially city-dwellers don't seem to be buying bikes especially those big heavy touring bikes that made Harley famous some blame the downturn on ridesharing which reduces the need to own transportation and of course there are those hefty school loans which shrink household budgets but some of hardy's troubles are frankly harleys or lease alone. The company's existing ridership is aging and younger riders. Just aren't filling in the gaps. It's new livewire. Electric bike starts at thirty thousand dollars hours as one writer pointed out almost the cost of low in Tesla early this year we pointed out that Harley is on a high wire a tricky balancing act between keeping its existing existing customers happy while trying to attract new younger writers and impress investors who think electric bikes the industry's future so far. Harley has not shown shown that it can navigate that delicate tightrope furthermore those shrinking motorcycle market isn't affecting all companies equally if as CNBC claimed aimed late last year millennials are killing motorcycles. We'll what about Harley's rival Indian wouldn't they be suffering too with the help of the newly launched. FDR Twelve hundred motorcycle asleep bike style like a flat track racer. Indians motorcycle sales grew fifteen percent of its second quarter to two hundred million million dollars. It's prophets also rose by two million that suggests Indian which is owned by Polaris Industries is doing a better job than Harley creating relevant well-priced well priced products the FDR twelve hundred retails for only thirteen to sixteen thousand dollars a far cry from some of Harleys gasp worthy list prices prices still it remains to be seen whether Hardee's big plan to expand the market could work over time the company that's been in business indeed as an American an icon since nineteen zero three as no slouch but it may take all the muscle harleys God along with a boatload of patience and and maybe you turn on those prices turn things around wondering this Business Business Wars Daily today is episode number two hundred and ninety nine curious about the history of Harley Davidson Checkout are seven part series Harley Biker Acura sits on our sister.

the last year since the China terrorists took place silver real into performing gold so that might be an area to look for if you're gonna look to trade the metals here really is a little late is it me not sure why because my members I had them in silver posh I had to sell short starting in February we had a return those members had a return of twenty six percent selling short when we identified that it wasn't going to go down anymore wasn't going to be a good short anymore why would we go and look for something else to shore that doesn't make sense because of pasta is down twenty six percent then all the other groups would be down at least twenty percent twenty six percent just got a stupid when you know you're in a stock and is going down and you said I better get out because going up whether wanted you just turn around stay the same stock we did so Pasaje my member stay in and let's put our position and now we bought a June seventeenth we're up twenty seven percent already in posh so when it went down we mitigate any losses by being short we had a twenty six percent gain then we turn around we bought it back in out of twenty seven percent so what you have to flip from start to stop that stupid let's talk about go all these guys were little late though aren't they they're talking about you should be looking a silver gold now what do you not should not get we bought in June

other way the opposite way in an amazing now listen to this these are the genius you listen to on these TV programs I got a Robert sorry please Robert I'm calling about Harley Davidson now for about ten years since it's now trading around thirty six dollars for our leader I think the problem with Harley is not necessarily what people worry about comes of imports it's the demographic it's just an older group of people who write Holly my no no no he's full of garbage Kramer's full of garbage the problem isn't with Harley the problem is with the investor yes with guys like Kramer that's the problem Harley is fine a guy gets into a stock isn't for for ten years he holds on the stock from fifty dollars to thirty six dollars and during that time this guy was up fifteen percent sometimes twenty percent but he held on to it he held on to it now he's down forty eight percent when I looked at it quickly it was the I think twice she was up over twenty percent at least never took of profits by your whole buy and hold I don't hold why because a juror javers they're there to make sure you feel good the don't worry bout everything's fine because you could depend on the federal reserve they're going to come in and they're going to reduce rates rose the reduced rate you're going to save us markets are gonna go down again no there's nothing wrong with Harley Davidson was a wonderful stock the wonderful stock wonderful company what's wrong is that the investor's adult and he's listening to a dope we got to go playing off each other some believable that's what's wrong you

That's the iconic sound of one of Harley Davidson's most famous motorcycles, the fat, boy, it's the robust macho sound the bikes traditional audience fell in love with long ago and still embraces. And this is the sound of Harleys livewire, which the company announced last week is set to become its first production electric motorcycle in its hundred and fifteen year history. Harleys trying to do something new here attract customers new to motorcycling keep its traditional base and impress investors who see the future of transportation as an electric one. That's not a live wire act. It's a high wire act. The new by gets good or bad design reviews, depending on whether you like the old school, look or the sport bike lines of the livewire. Thanks to its electric motor can go from zero to sixty in three and a half thrilling seconds much faster than a gas powered bike with no clutch or gear shifting the e hog should be easy enough for novice to ride but change doesn't come easy at a company. Best known for bikes that looked like museum pieces from the nineteen forties. The challenge for Harley is to grow new customers. Without alienating its rapidly aging base, which may help explain why Harley purposefully engineered an engine roar into the otherwise silent livewire, it may not be the potato potato of the old v. Twin still it's definitely loud and distinctive. But here comes the kicker livewire will debut at a price of almost thirty thousand dollars to quote, one motorcycle enthusiast thirty thousand for a motorcycle is an awful f-ing lot. And it is especially when compared to zero the leader in the electric motorcycle. World zeros entry level bike costs about a third of the livewire and some of its twenty nineteen motorcycles are rated to go more than twice as far on a single charge pricing, the livewire so high may simply have been a branding choice for Harley which is known for popping price tags. The new bike is only at the mid range of Harleys lineup after all top of the line can cost more than forty. Three thousand dollars far more than most expensive motorcycle from Indian its closest traditional competitor. But there could be another reason for the price altogether. It may be that harley's less interested in selling these new tech machines than in convincing Wall Street that the old barn shield knows. The marketplace is changing after all retooling factories for new electric bikes is expensive. And even though Harleys promised a range of new electrics by the middle of the next decade summit, Milwaukee's Motor Company would like nothing more than to tell ANSI investors.
