Take That, Target! Walmart Launches Hip Private Label Line
"A. From wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Thursday October I. It said that ninety percent of Americans live within ten miles of a Walmart. Now, if that's the case, why don't more people shop for clothes at the world's biggest retailer? Well, that's a question that Walmart's been trying to answer for years with limited success fifteen years ago. The company introduced a private label line and advertised in none other than vogue anybody remember that. No No. Thought. So well in the last few years Walmart has I'd competitor target with some Degree of envy as target has successfully launched several private label brands of Apparel Walmart however just hasn't been able to get out of the gate with its own apparel lines a few years ago it bought menswear brand bonobos, mud cloth, and plus sized women's wear brand eloquent since then it's sold MoD cloth and shrunk bonobos recording to retail reporter Daphne. Howland in two thousand eighteen. It also launched four private label lines and called itself a quote destination for apparel. While some of those private labels are doing well according to Ad Week for many shoppers that map lead elsewhere to this day most younger shoppers wooden named. Walmart. Apparel destination well, now Walmart is trying again last week the company launched a more upscale private label line of so-called modern essentials for men and women called Free Assembly. The line was designed by veteran of J. Crew Old Navy. Yes. bonobos Walmart says free assembly features. Classic pieces intended to be worn season after season in other words, a hip or take on fashion than the cheap generic jeans, t-shirts and athletes. Your Walmart is best known for. Initially, free assembly will be available online and in two hundred, Fifty Walmart stores according to week. The line ranges from men's carpenter jeans and flannel shirts to a structured forty-five Boyfriend Blazer for Women Free Assembly was designed for younger customers who don't already by their basics at Walmart a whole new crowd probably much like the one that shops at target and like will everyone who seeking affordable fashion on Walmart's enormous rival you know the one Amazon. have to Walmart persistence despite several failures, the company hasn't given up, but this time economic conditions have changed. So dramatically that its new apparel strategy just might actually succeed. I mean consider this some days. It seems like retailers fashion brands everywhere keeping bankruptcy attorneys and business last year seventeen major retailers declared bankruptcy according to retail dive so far this year twenty-seven have so many of these retailers but not all sell clothing from J., crew JC penney with so many apparel brands going out of business it leaves a big penny pinching for Walmart to scoop up if. And it's a big one. If it can out design target but targeted won't be easy to beat. It's apparel sales actually sank over the last few months in a week back to school shopping season. Could make that worse Wall Street Journal reporter Aaron Back Rights. But in both apparel and home target enjoys a reputation that Walmart has yet to achieve its private label brands are known for quality and design savvy back rights and that reputation sets it apart from dying department stores providing what back calls a moat against cutthroat competition from desperate retailers. Apart, from apparel sales both target and Walmart have profited as a result of the pandemic Walmart's e commerce revenues soared almost seventy five percent during the first quarter targets.

A Look at Directional Sound with Holosonics
"Sonics now the world leader in providing highly directional sound products with thousands of installations worldwide. Joining back in on Joe and is conversation he starts in with a great story about minority report. As a funny story about that the minority report seen was actually. Partially written by the Technical Consultants of that movie named John Under koffler. Classmate of mine at the Media Lab and he knew all about the audience spotlight. You know he was a good buddy and pretty sure that was written in specifically about the spotlight as they're going through the mall and then yeah the different parts are saying Mr. so and so you know you could use some new glasses of clothes or what have you I think that was directly inspired by the audience spa technology those kinds of things we are already doing Now certainly, we don't want to make a creepy for people We don't want surprise them too much, but I think appropriately used. I think it can be very effective in the billboards in the whispering in the minority port stuff is fun and it's interesting. It's unusual but the day to day applications I think are way more effective and have a lot bigger impact like the allgood manichean pain that Ogilvie. Did with the audio spotlight speakers they put speakers over banana display and supermarkets, and they add a little place where if you stood in the right place, you heard messaging about where the bananas came from how they were sourced from fair producers and You know done ethically and the rest, and you only hear it if you're standing in front. Of that banner display because the whole store doesn't need to hear about neo all the people who are engaging with a product ear and they started sales those bananas one, hundred, forty percent over the campaign, which was great. It was a big success for that We've also done bookstores where the author would be reading from their book and Fun of their book display. So if you stand up and walk up to the place where the display of their books, all of a sudden here that the author doing a reading we did that seven eleven used our systems oliver off south southern part of the US for. Providing a news and advertising from their digital signs displays to the people buying coffee. What happened originally, you know as they had these digital science displays and they wanted to sell advertising on them. You can't sell advertising quite as negatively if it doesn't have sound. So they added sound and they used regular speakers from the TV's that were in the store, but it just bothered everybody everybody hated listening to it because the stuff would loop constantly and they would you know they would hear the same things again and again, especially, the clerks who had to work there and one of the people who had been in this business for awhile arranging this, they told me that when you put speakers in a store and they're playing repetitive information, the clerks will do three things. The first thing they'll do is the figure out how to turn it down. And they'll turn the volume down if they can't figure out how to turn the volume down, they'll figure out how to turn it off. and. If they can't figure out how to turn it off though break it. said. This was just rampant in the industry. So we came along with the audio spotlight speakers and replaced the regular speakers in the TV. So the only person who would hear the digital sign content was the one standing right in front of it and engaging usually it's the person buying coffee and they're mixing up coffee and they're putting the cream and things like that. So they're there for a little while and they can hear it and they're not bothered at all by it now, the advertisers. Are Not irradiating their customers they're just advertising and it's a pleasurable experience. You get some news, you get a couple of ads and you get your coffee, and then you go off and you don't have to hear it anymore. So that made the adoption much much wider and a worked well. So that was a that was a good type of application. So the general idea being able to use sound in a public place without bothering people nearby is really a good niche for the. Technology because speakers are so usually turned down people don't sound because they're afraid of the noise both the audio spotlight. They can deliver the sound of the people who need it or want it without bothering everybody

"Have undertaken this method. And it works. Really? Well, if you have strong product that gets that upsell dynamic building, and they have one hundred forty percent net up cells with shows the models, working stand out or fit in to the cloud IPO market right now. So a lot of people have been looking at this for number of reasons, certainly a scale business, which puts them on a short list with the with the stripes with the pro cores zoom, which recently went public and pager duty. There'd been this classic companies that people were watching quick closely, and also the way in which they went public. I think that this will change some the mindsets in terms of the direct listing and whether that's a viable alternative, but they're still fifty five companies behind them on the private side valued at over a billion dollars today in cloud alone. And so there's a long list that the public investors are now looking at hoping that they were to come surely directly singer, right call like would their market cap be higher, if they did a traditional IPO or lower by absolute home run for them and huge credit. I love financial innovation in general, but the fact that they got the perception of the pop with this reference price, and the actual opening price and yet they captured full value for shareholders. Rachel actually leave money on the table, we should be clear about that. Absolutely. That half billion dollars spread between. The, the reference price and the actual, I rate was captured by employees and investors that we're the selling shareholders into this listing and so very few companies have attempted this and it's a small classic companies that can pull it off in the current construct. But I think it suggests very good things for trying to do more of a market match for these APO's as opposed to the pops that have happened for the other companies that one public school. So do you think we'll see more companies tech companies do that? Would you advise your companies to do it? It's provocative. And yes, we were the largest investor and Pinterest, which was one of the big IPO's a few weeks ago, pager duty five or we've had five this quarter alone. I think a number of them could have considered this and looking ahead. I look at companies like Airbnb look at stripe and I've got their boards are sitting around right now thinking is this for us? And can we get the best of both worlds there? Okay. So ten years ago you saw the cloud coming and you wrote something called ten laws of the cloud. This was in two thousand eight and that was advice for founders about how to start a club company and obviously the cloud. Industry has exploded since then and still exploding. So what are the laws today? So I was an early cloud, CEO and worked with venture partners with some of our early investments, and it was a small group of companies in fifteen public companies in the entire cloudy system, that were public and only a few hundred of any scale on the private side, you fast forward today, and there are fifty plus public cloud companies worth almost a trillion and market cap and hundreds below them privatize about to flip over. And what we've seen is that it's a much more nuance world, where they're getting much more sophisticated about product, our earlier discussion about slack. You see product lead companies now for the first time where the best practice winning and you see very thoughtful metrics to unlock this high gross margin, very predictable revenue stream that investors. Love you get the best of both of these companies, you got the high growth because of this generational shift in technology and you get very predictable business models because of the subscription dynamics underneath the core customer relationship. Now, the cloud sounds like a great idea, and obviously in many ways, it is. It's the only. Only way it also increases. Vulnerability Agean world. Where's cyber-attacks threats are on every front? And so what is the biggest risk the cloud that you see today? So I would dispute the relative ability, I accept the notion that cyber attacks absolutely or threat to software and businesses in general, however. Absolutely. What you see is that a purpose built application company that knows the attack vectors on their software is much better position to defend it than a corporation with on Prem software installed reading, thousands of applications with all sorts of different attackers that they don't know how to protect against. And I absolutely would bet on Salesforce dot com or last year or two, then their software suite,.

"The Dell EMC radio show. I'm your host Michael solich in for Dell. And here's the phone number. If you'd like to give us a call today, we have this segment in one more. That is eight seven seven seven eleven fifty to eleven. Give us a call about any question. You have about real estate that you have property that's out there, transitioning from single family into multifamily, which is kind of an interesting concept that we work on a regular basis, because we have several people that just love single family and they do really well. I mean you heard yesterday on our show, we're talking to Canada and Matt Wolfram and from Houston, and those folks were getting on all their properties. I think that eight single family houses all their properties. Twenty five percent cash on cash return and they've increased their net worth or their valuation about one hundred forty percent in just a short period of time. And folks, that's what we do. We teach how that works. And they totally credit Dellums map for their quick success. Yes. And they're just such a wonderful couple. They're teaching their kids how to do that. And I encourage you to go and check our website out in look for a podcast that they did yesterday with some radio show. Well in this segment, what I'd like to cover his how you can take some action, steps, and maybe create an advantage for yourself with lifestyles, roadmap and Delo was talks on the radio about different ways that you can do this. And the thing I was like about Dell's e turns things upside down. So it's totally unconventional, but it works. Why do you want to keep working in something that you have? It's creating a result for you that you're not happy with one, come and see what we do to see how that can change like the Wolfram stood in just a couple of years, Matt retired. Very quickly after he started del, ma'am. See, there's a couple of thoughts that you can do and why it works so well as our whole system has got a networking concept to it that helps you get to financial freedom within two to five years. It's no different than if you walked into a room with a bunch of millionaires. And actually said, how are you doing? How did you do that? That's as simple as it is. And they're more than happy to help you both people don't understand that they have access to that kind of network, when they joined, lifestyles unlimited, and if you'd like to bypass all those slow poke steps all those the slow boat, to China steps, that's the way you do it. You come and learn from other people that have been successful and you network and they're very happy to open their books and teach you literally how you could be affective profitable and successful, but you have talents and these people you're going to meet here have talents. But the bond, you're going to create for life is going to be what's really, really special because you'd be surprised how much faster you make friends with our group because everybody's here for the same reason, and the act of learning solid process is gonna create for you. The greatest outcome that you could imagine because you can actually start with our program, investing, and buying single family rentals anywhere from ten thousand to thirty five thousand dollars, depending on the property. The valuation depends on the market of where you are. You're not going to be able to do it everywhere with the small amounts. But we see typically fifteen to thirty five thousand regularly for people buying single family homes in the markets that we operate successfully, and you can do this yourself. Because once you create wealth, with your first single family property, that could be translated into many more and it's Benchley you can move up to multifamily. And why do we say move up? You can do just great with Hugh. Returns in single family. You can make hundred two hundred plus returns with single family and run your own business yourself, or you can for example, the only thing that's different about multifamily is you have all those properties in one location. So you have this economy of scale, so imagine being able to drive to one address and manage your entire business, or actually, as I was telling you before your manager is managing the business and you just drive by say, hey, how's things going you go out and play golf golf with the wife, the family, your girlfriend, whatever go a little dinner. It's all expensed because your checking on your property. You're discussing your business. Those are the benefits that you see in real estate. You won't typically have in the example I gave you earlier where you're trading, your time for money you wanna create these income streams income streams are the key to your freedom, and freedom is simple as a two to five year plan because. If you don't have a plan right now you're lost, you could have a plan right now and you're still ost because it's not getting you to where the outcome you want it to be.

You would agree with Mr. rupee that diversity is a good thing. I would would my point is, sir. Is that call blocking is an interim measure that needs to be implemented. But the ultimate measure is that we need to figure out how to stop the illegal calls, and and the trae stack is a very good step in that direction. But it won't complete the problem until we give consumers control over who gets to call their phone lines. And that I think really lies with implementation of the telephone consumer Protection Act.

That's an approximately one hundred forty percent increase in robocalls to Colorado over the past two years that's equivalent to two point four million calls per day nearly ninety nine thousand calls per hour and just over twenty. Seven calls per second. Every single day in a state of five and a half million people. But these are just averages many in Colorado have it far worse than the average. For example.

Obviously, we all want to eliminate dental insurance and their affects that they have on our practice, and the vulnerability that we have when we rely on them myself being one of them. I feel devotional to them all the time. And really frustrated, you know, you multiply that by the number of practices that we have in my group. And it's that it's that amount of frustration that that makes me really really admire people like that's that have been able to figure out how the fee for service world works and how to thrive under those conditions. I have some really great friends that have an awesome practice in Auckland. New Zealand clients of mine, and they have a thriving practice. But the the one thing that I've always admired about that country is that it's a first world country and. They their currency is very strong of compared to the rest of the world and into the United States dollar. But there's no such thing as dental insurance there, they they actually adopted a a membership plan in their practice. And that was like that was something that that nobody had heard of before in their neck of the woods. And I it just always seemed like a utopia to me when they told us about, you know, how there is just no such thing as dental insurance in their entire country and everything was fee for service, and you know, had nobody had the option to to, you know, be in network for any particular dental insurance anything so the three us land, the promise that absolutely. And and they chose two thousand dollars per crown, which is crazy. Hey. A terrible thing. I remember meeting them at that your success summit a couple years back. Yeah. Yeah. They were on stage for a little bit. And yeah, they they they grew by one hundred forty percent that particular year when they're up on stage, and they're just they're just really great people. Awesome. But yet man thank you so much for your time. Drew always always awesome to catch up. I'm stoked that you and I get to hang out in like two weeks voices of dentistry. If you guys.
"one hundred forty percent" Discussed on The Andrew Klavan Show
"I just I have a hard time believing that somebody who said in two thousand three they don't mind American Alabama ends up in the Senate. Mitch McConnell is is the best at what he does. I mean, like what what can you say about a guy who is going to end up in an election for Democrats picking up a bunch of Republicans may end up with as many as fifty five seats in the Senate after all, by the way, they're going to need that cushion because Tony twenty the map really shifts and suddenly a bunch of Republicans are up for reelection in blue slash purple states. And that he got really ugly, which is went Trump's Kotel really are gonna have a major effect there. So we haven't talked about in terms of Trump. We haven't talked about race. And it's going to be really interesting. I do not know do not know if you can acquire the information how many blacks and Hispanics have turned for Trump. And the reason I don't know this is because they have to self report. There's no way for two. I know unless they're willing to say, oh, yeah. Voted for Donald Trump, and they may not be willing to. Say it and yet, and yet we keep saying we keep seeing these numbers these nothing strange numbers thirty six percent, forty percents of black supporting Trump if that's true. He really white the Democratic Party out once they start actually voting. Those numbers could wipe the Democratic Party out in a reelection bid. The question will be that. There's two questions actually one is has Trump actually move a significant majority of those. To a willingness to vote for him. The next question will be does their willingness to vote for him translate into a willingness to vote for other Republican ticket? I don't trust a lot of the polls that you're seeing percentages because just not enough. Pose a black folks have been like the the numbers the sheer number of black folks being cold is like it'll be like a poll sample of eleven people, right and three of them. And it's like, okay. Well, that's forty percents. It's just really hard to it's hard to 'specially when the theoretically voted one hundred forty percent for Barack Obama was completely understandable to me. I would understand doing that. But but was that loyalty to Democrats wasn't just wealthy to? We just do, you know, one of the questions here. Also when it comes to Trump, which do you think from had more impact on the Senate or the house because that really is a big question. Meaning that lose the house. We're gonna pick up in the Senate, which one of those is more of a referendum on Trump or both really campaigned more for Senate candidates. Obviously. By the same token. Senate candidates have much more independent personas as opposed to Trump people actually knows that like name a house candidate. But I can I can tell you who like Ron his hand. His ran is very Trumpy candidate in Florida and mix alley not as much in Arizona. So they're independent personas kind of do make a difference in these particular races, which again raises the question of whether Trump is a boon or is he a detriment or is he just he may be a neutral. Here's here's the most controversial proposition of the night. Yeah. What matter that much? Really this. This is this is a controversial proposition. Everybody's saying selection is about Trump. Everything's about Trump. Trump is the center of the universe. If something says, let's say that it were some other Republican unnamed Republican president of the United States these results. Look, basically what you'd kind of one except for turn up and turn out congressional races. Are all about turn out? Most people don't know who their -ment is accurate. So there you start to poke the you're democrat or Republican. Ticket at that point. And Trump has definitely affected her. There's no question. Look, look, this is true of everybody in this room..
"one hundred forty percent" Discussed on Manager Tools
"When right now is called mec- mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive, which is a powerful way to analyze and determine things, and we'll talk about that in the future cast and they're all kinds of other frameworks for thinking about business problems and drilling down into marketing and finance, and operations, and software and sewing. So basically, generally ones approach your approach, the application of certain methods as Dan alluded to getting zero. If you don't use the methods even to get the right answer is really what's being evaluated. And the reason that's important guys is because you won't have all the data available to the original decision makers. You won't because they can't give you five years worth of emails and hundreds of meetings that they went to to make the decision that they made. You're going to have to make the assumptions, make some assumptions based on the data you're given and. Then you're gonna have to share your assumptions as you present your solution. In some cases, you're necessary. Sanctions could be wrong, but your answer and I remember there's not an answer. Your process could be deemed to be quite good and they would say, look, you it right? You just made a wrong assumption here. That number should be negative and not positive. Okay. Well, that changes the outcome a little bit, but you'll get better over time. The more cases you do, the more likely your assumptions are going to be closer to what's accurate. We're going to talk when it comes to case study interviewing about how part of case studies. One of the really narrow uses have case studies and interviews is math questions and believe it or not executives and consultants to executives who were making business. Y decisions are expected to know things like if sales were one hundred forty percent above normal and sales were fifty, seven million. You should immediately be able to know what sales were that fifty. Seven million is. One hundred and forty percent of and the difference between something beyond hundred forty percent of something and something one hundred and forty percent above something else. And the reason why that's important is that's the lingo. That's the that's the way executives think and talk to one another. An example that I like is I mentioned this actually to staff this morning in a call we were on. I said, everybody knows the number two thousand is is if somebody tells you what their hourly pay is, and we assume for moment they're working forty hours a week, not that they always are you just multiply their hourly pay by two thousand, and that will give you a rough estimate of their annual salary because people tend to work about two thousand hours a year, and that's forty hours a week times. Fifty weeks. Fifty is another number that's fairly well known that if you get a weekly profit or revenue or cost number no given week is a perfect microcosm. Some of the entire year. But you can say if my prophet this week was ten thousand dollars, our run rate profit for this year is fifty times ten thousand dollars, which is five hundred thousand dollars, run rate, prophet of five hundred thousand dollars and something you said it to people and they go, oh, I did know that. Yeah, it's just you don't do the math and we'll fifty two. You just won't play by fifty to give you a rough estimate. Another thing sometimes people will say, well, what is that number? And they're not asking you whether it's sixteen thousand five hundred or seventeen thousand two hundred eight. They're asking you whether it's seventeen seventeen hundred seventeen thousand or seventeen million. We're talking about orders of magnitude because if the difference is only seventeen, we don't care. If it's seventeen million, we do care. We do now another important part of the analysis of a case study response. Your response to the study is the verbal ization of your assumptions and the verb illustration of your process decisions along the way. And now you can see where communication skills, presentation skills come into it. In some cases, it wouldn't be unusual for a professor or interviewer to contradict one of your key assumptions that you made yet expect the responded to continue describing how they approach the problem knowing full well that they're bad assumption is going to lead to failure in the quote, answer of the case study, and you.
Qatar to aid Turkey, lira rallies, U.S. rejects lifting tariffs
"I asked the BBC's, Celine Garrett in Istanbul about the mood across Turkey and which goods are affected? Well, this morning Turkey, double tariffs on some US imports and including cars, alcohol, tobacco cosmetics, slice and called a decree was signed by presidents at type our Don. And for instance, the tariffs on passenger cars are was doubled to one hundred and twenty percent on alcoholic drinks to one hundred forty percent. Sent and on tobacco to sixty percent. The vice president took this on Twitter and he said, this step was taken under the principle of reciprocity in response to US administrations, deliberate attacks on Turkish economy that is a feeling shared across Turkey amongst the pro government people, government supporters that Turkish economy is targeted, and there should be a response and the government is acting in line with that. Having said that these terrorists will not actually have a very serious impact. The United States is the fourth largest source of imports. Turkey, it accounts, twelve billion dollars of imports. However, these particular tariffs will be targeting only a small small ratio of that, and this will rather be very symbolic. Of course, Turkish government is trying to put on a brave face. Your symbolic may be, but what do people in Turkey make of all this? Well, there is this. Atmosphere of a tense cautiousness in Turkey. Last Friday, the Turkish lira the local currency had seen a record, low lost twenty percent overnight. And we're talking about a currency that already had lost forty percent of its value since the beginning of the year. But early this week, the central Bank intervened and the lira gained some ground after dot and the Turkish government is saying that the steps taken by the central men central Bank show that they are on the right path. LeRoy is declining. It has actually rallied this morning as well after a Turkish at a Turkish court decided to release to Greek soldiers. So Turkey is causing up to its European neighbours, Germany, Greece, France, et cetera. There will be talks held with Mirko mccrone and our dawn, for instance, today and tomorrow and Turkey wants to show that it has alternatives and the people in Turkey want to see that we cannot talk about a panic atmosphere in Turkey. But every now and then when someone passes by an exchange office, you see a worried face where is the dollar standing now, whereas the lira standing now. But having said that this morning lira has rallied, we're talking about lira standing at six against the dollar. Whereas two days ago, it was above seven
