Unknown a big shout to gibb jigger from parts and there you go get out of town so now very quickly we have a new suspected case of cyanide. Poisoning this with the autopsy of lynne. Reiner so naturally law enforcement went to the reiner home. They found a bottle of regular strength. Tylenol landed purchase that day. This was lot number one eight three three m b. It's still sitting on the kitchen sink but they also found some extra strength tylenol capsules which they believe were given to lynn by the hospital when it discharged her in her bottle of regular strength tylenol upon testing the capsules the assistant chief toxicologist for the illinois department of public health determined that they were filled with potassium. Sign up an inexpensive low purity grade that is typically used in manufacturing and heavy industry leonard taken to extra strength tylenol capsules which had contained cyanide. The other apparently did not of the other six extra strength. Tylenol capsules found her bottle for were poisoned. None of the regular strength pills in the bottle that she had purchased were tainted at all although authorities suspect. That is possible. That lens poison pills came from the hospital. Johnson johnson removed all the pills from area hospitals and destroyed them without testing any of them so we will never really know ceesay to say to have them testimony now because how big this crime mccain correct and you also have to wonder how much work and effort are. They putting into motion to just get the capsules off the shelves and collect all them so nobody else gets harmed or killed. Yeah this is not. These are not easy task in these. Are things that you need to do immediately with the quickness so we still have law enforcement looking into these other unexplained deaths so investigators looking into the unexplained death of mary mcfarland. The the bell telephone store worker began to question whether her death could also have been caused by tylenol. They found ten extra strength. Tylenol capsules in the container in her purse five of which were determined to contain cyanide. These apparently came from the bottle that they found in her apartment. This was lot number one. Nine one zero md. This bottle contained thirty three capsules. One of which was filled with signed. This was a new lot number. And then a fourth. The pills consumed by paula prints. The bottle bore the lot number. One eight zero one m which had not been listed by the company among the known contaminated. Lots interestingly the extra strength tylenol bottle impalas bathroom was a twenty four count bottle. Unlike the fifty cow bottles used in the other deaths right cyanide was found in one of the remaining capsules but six other capsules were discolored. They had been corroded by the cyanide. Leaking from that one tainted pill from johnson johnson the parent company. What ensued is considered the birth of crisis management the corporate method of handling a pr disaster by johnson and johnson announced that i a localized recall of just pills from the tainted lots but by october fifth. They expanded that recall to a complete nationwide recall of their painkiller capsules. At thirty one million bottles. That's exactly correct. Thirty one million bottles were pulled from retail locations. This is estimated to have cost johnson and johnson. About one hundred million dollars. They offered our award of one hundred thousand for any information. One hundred thousand dollars reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the cyanide. Poisoning the recall. I believe what caused over one hundred million dollars. Think maybe we'd offer a little bit more money than a hundred. If is my company. We just lost one hundred million i go. Hey i'm offering a million i'll pay. I'll pay the one percent of what i just loss to figure out. What what asshole did this. What murderer is out there. They flew in hundreds of chemist to assist in this testing process. They worked hand in hand with the fbi and other investigators and johnson and johnson examined the three distribution centres through which the tainted tylenol bottles were processed. All of these were looked at and they publicly said that they found nothing nor was anything found it. The one distribution center in pennsylvania that all the bottles at pass through the pills have been manufactured at different plants so this is troubling because this means that they were not tainted during the manufacturing process nor knowing what we now know about cyanide and how it would react in that capsule and corrode everything i think there was. There's little reason to believe that anyway. Yeah you're moving a little fast the slowdown for saying so. We have seven victims seven victims that we believe were all poison. Three of them took pills from the same bottle correct. So we have a total of four different bottles and that you're saying that all the bottles came from different stores but how many came from different distribution centers. Okay so we have yes. We have seven victims. Who would have consumed capsules from c. Therein lies a big question in this whole case with one of the victims. Were not really one hundred percent certain where she obtained the poison capsules right so we could be talking about a situation of seven victims with five different tainted bottles of tylenol or four and then somehow she received these poison pills from either the hospital or elsewhere. We can't say for certain but what we can say is given the lot numbers on the bottles that we know tested positive for cyanide that they it seems like they had come through similar from the same distribution center. What is also determined is that they were manufactured at different plants and for my understanding there was a plant in texas and a plant in pennsylvania probably other plants as well but determined. That pills came from those two plants manufactured at those two plants. Which again points that. It's not tainting. The pills during the manufacturing pray the whoever did. This did this at a later time after they had been manufactured packaged up and shipped off to be sold. Almost seems like this individuals walking into the store. Maybe had a couple of pills in his hand. The cyanide pills opens up the tylenol because we have no safety precautions at this this point and does replaces a couple bills moves onto the next bottle or maybe does several bottles at that location or just may be one and then moves onto another drugstore two in the same process over and over. That's exactly right. The the other thing that was quickly determined to captain by johnson and johnson and investigators was that all of the pills from these bottles or the bottles themselves had been manufactured the previous spring so if they were contaminated during the manufacturing process they would have been extensively corroded by september late september when people were consuming. These things right now. that is one. It's going to be horrific for the general public because now we got some rogue person out there who is in a very evil indiscriminate way killing unknown people to the victim to the suspect or group of people that are doing this to terrorize the community. But it is a good thing for johnson and johnson because it's not a mix up in the manufacturing process. It's not. They are in fact responsible but not to the level of that. It's going on when the pills are made bright and so if we do have a disgruntled employee they're still having to go around store by store. They're not tampering with the medication during the initial processes correct. Someone's doing this after these. These pills have already made it through the distribution centers so either. Somebody's taking them off of a truck somewhere off of multiple trucks that would deliver these kind of goods or there. I mean they could even be actually purchasing them from stores taking them home and then putting together their poisoned bottle and then returning them to the store brian. Just show up at the store and you put it back on the shelf at your pocket. Put it at the front of the shelf where someone's going to grab it and purchase it and take it home. It's also safer way. Because if i go into a drug store and i purchase this product i need some extra strength tylenol. I got a headache. Might co driving me nuts and they give me this bottle of pills while they also give me a receipt so then when i come back in with the tampered pills and i maybe i go to put it back on the shelves but i get caught right And if they say something all no. This is my bottle. Here's my receipt and so it would. It would protect me when i went back to putting the the tampered with or the poison back on the shelf. Yeah yeah you wouldn't want to be leaving a paper trail of returning that that bottle you would want to go around and purchase these from different stores at different times. Maybe even well in advance of you doing this or again. Take them off of a truck or multiple trucks. Depending on where you work or your accessibility to said trucks was ninety-eight you. You want to just go back in there and place them on the shelf out which nowadays would go. Hey pull up the the horrible camera footage pull up that former horrible camera footage that we're not going to be able to make out. Who's in that picture but stainton eighty two most stores. Do not have surveillance. So i believe every place said. They believed that these were purchased. That there was no surveillance cameras. So they doing about that but what they did do was all these stores went back and i. i'm assuming this this came from law enforcement. Hey go back to the last week or so of any shoplifters that you had and to re question them the reaction from law enforcement to the tylenol desk which came quickly to be known as the tylenol murders or timers as the fbi called. The case was well. It was swift and immediate. Investigators from various agencies went to work forming a task force of one hundred and forty law enforcement personnel officers from five different towns were involved in because the case also fell under federal jurisdiction because of the united states commerce laws. The fbi jumped in as well sending thirty two agents to the area within hours of the murders coming to light a young within hours of the murders coming to light a young john. Douglas who go on to be known as legendary criminal profiler an fbi agent and more importantly friend of our show was on a plane to illinois. We'll discuss his conclusions and a bit. The task force looked into every angle imaginable in this situation. Task force members examined a possible manipulation of johnson and johnson stock prices by some kind of crime syndicate right. Because you're looking for a competing company. Yeah who who has something to gain out of this. Out of this mass hysteria. The has been cost in foreign terrorist groups. They examined angry employees or ex employees at each location where the tainted tylenol was manufactured stored or sold. These people were interviewed and evaluated shoplifters as you pointed out previously arrested for shoplifting. from these drugstores. They were looked at a second time and spoke to. In regards to this crime. Recently released inmates and mental patients in the vicinity were profiled and interrogated as well. Police ran checks on every car. Receiving a traffic ticket in the areas. The stores during september twenty night during that whole timeframe agents man the task force hotline logging. Each tip no matter how crazy it seemed when it came in they also questioned every family member and close friend of each victim are like to hear top ten lists of the the craziest calls that came in on the on this case. Yes so you're interviewing all of the family members and close friends one because you're trying to fill out the whole time line on you know when and where it was purchased in that jazz which seems to be fairly known by this point in our investigation right. But you're also doing that because you wanna make sure that one of these victims wasn't actually a targeted victim an intended victim whoever perpetrated that murder was camouflaging that murder with crime in the other deaths. Right investigators on the case. Where conflicted between those who suspected that the tampering had occurred in the distribution process. And those who believed that happened at the retail level authorities obtained the list of all employees of retailers and the distribution. chain as well. You know anybody that would have had access to these tylenol bottles or the cases that they came in. of course. This list was massive. This was a bunch of people to pour through illinois attorney. General tire farner. Excuse you initially said that they were investigating disgruntled employees and had already had twenty to thirty potential suspects in this case but the focus changed to retail level tampering because it just seemed to implausible that the pills could have been messed with at a distribution center and then put back into the supply chain right in large part captain as you pointed out that they're put on the front of shelves in different but proximate towns all kind of at the same time so the timing was suspected to be very recent almost simultaneous. Because of the belief the design decide would corrode the capsules very quickly causing them to distort and change color. people would notice people would not ingest them. Experts advise that the cyanide would eat through the pills within hours or days. This is a little tricky here captain because i read the results of several test and this was run by the cook. County medical examiner's office. No corrosion was found within forty eight hours of the induction of the cynanide. The possibility expanded the timeframe meant that no one was really sure when or how the tainted pills had been placed on the shelves although the they had all been purchased with an hours of causing death so basically what you're saying is is we know that all these victims purchased or receive their bottle of extra strength tylenol within twenty four hours of their death So even though the cops were saying hey if you you add cyanide to these capsules they would disintegrate within a day once they actually did some tests on these cook county. They come back and say well actually once we Your applied the same method to put poison into these capsules. We actually see no corrosion after forty hours. No corrosion within forty eight hours so yes. It's it's a little bit messy because you have the experts quote unquote experts saying one thing that the cyanide would eat through the pills within a matter of just hours or a couple of days the cook county their experiments showed differently that that it would be possibly well after forty eight hours before crozier corrosion starts to take place so this doesn't really help to narrow down the window of time of win whomever put the poison in these bottles and put them back on the shelves at basically the purchase. And then gestion. We have that all figured out We don't have when they were actual t tampered with. Because now we're looking at a lot larger window than a eight window. Yeah and the thing. That's so tricky here too is. How little would one be paying attention to other shoppers in these stores. You know you see somebody putting something on a shelf. You might think that. Oh they looked at the back of it. They read the ingredients or read the possible side effects or whatever and decided to put it back on the shelf or maybe it was a dollar to more than they were willing to pay and they they might buy a different product or they didn't want explosive diarrhea but what was interesting here. Captain is all in all. It was determined that one hundred and sixty tainted capsules were found in eight bottles of extra strength. Tylenol purchased at seven different locations. This is after people start turning in their tylenol after they pull them off the shelves. They're testing ones that that were either purchased and not consumed or bottles. It were still on the shelves. Two bottles were found on the shelves and osco drug and woodfield mall in schaumburg illinois. Two more bottles containing tainted pills were turned in by chicago. Residents these four bottles were in addition to the janice kellerman prince and macfarlane bottles. So eight bottles total. We still aren't certain. As to where lynn reiner's pills came from one hundred percent and of course we have no idea how many bottles were just thrown away without being tested. A survey later found that sixty percent of chicago had destroyed or discarded their capsules during the first week after the poisonings and johnson and johnson was permitted to collect and destroy collected bottles of tylenol without inspecting them for tampering. All in all a very very small percentage of extra strength tylenol bottles nationwide were tested. The fact is that likely no one will ever know how many pills were actually poisoned one. Here's the other weird thing to again. Nineteen eighty two. So let's remember this is going to cause then to a change. The way they do things. This is the reason why we're going to have a seals put on items and protective measures But we don't have security footage but we have these bottles and what do they not find on these bottles. They don't find fingerprints or any other form of physical evidence. Yes so let's dive into this Here captain the howell. The poisoning was actually done. So if it was done at the retail level as most investigators seem to believe and of course johnson and johnson is going to back. This believe it meant as we said the killer had purchased bottles of extra strength. Tylenol stole them. Whatever probably just purchase them because again you're not wanting to create a paper trail. You're not going to want to get caught stealing tylenol leading up to this event if it were me trying to do this administer this mass hysteria i would probably be purchasing these bottles well in advance weeks in advance in case. There is security footage. We know that a lot of places will recycle their recordings and maybe after a week or two weeks. They are recording over old footage. If they in fact even have any type of surveillance at their their building but somebody would have obtained the bottles and then had to dr them somewhere elsewhere right and then put the capsules back into the bottles and then drive around. Or what have you place these on. These shelf fronts at the different retail locations. But again this this seven different locations. This makes it also more difficult because if you look at town like or you look at a town like new york and even chicago ones that have public transportation where you can get through. The major city jumped from point to point pretty quickly. Right if you're on foot so for individual to have these let's say eight bottles that they tampered with and then to go throughout the city and drop them off at new locations because that's one thing that they never could tell you they could never tell you if these bottles were in the inventory of that said store so we don't know if the individual by eight ten bottles and then took him you know from one location took him home and then tampered with them and then distributed them out right. That's correct what we do know. Is that these retail location. Seven of them this person or group of people would have sprinkled these bottles around the chicago area and the western suburbs of chicago. And whoever did this likely had to have done this very soon. Prior to september twenty nineth right as pointed out. If you know you just put them back on the shelf you put them at the front of the line you. Whoever did this would have some knowledge of cyanide. And would know that it probably would corrode these other pills and therefore if they want the sinai to have the effect that it's intended for in this case you're going to put those bottles right at the front of the line for people to grab them. Purchase them and hopefully ingest them very soon after purchasing which we know unfortunately happened and all these cases well again. It's also it's a weird thing. Because i have when i've been at the store. Oh i need some medicine or something right pick some up. I think i'm running low but it's normally item that you pick up after you've already run out correct or you're picking it up because you need it right now right then. Yeah so i mean. It's very the level of sophistication of Tack again we. We know pretty much how they did it or we can assume look. I'm with you. It makes more sense that they would buy the bottles. Take the bottles home manipulate the situation there And then take them back. Doesn't make any sense to me that they would be able to to do this with within sight of a store. No no you immediately. Someone would be would notice that you were up to something while obviously not like inside the store but you could get the bottle and go to the bathroom or something and i don't think it would take that long time because the the measuring. That's what gets me as the lethal doses could be anywhere from like they said one hundred percent the or one hundred percent the lethal dose or even a thousand percent a lethal dose meaning that is individuals not measuring them out. He's filling the capsules backup. But that's also because. I don't think it takes much. You don't have to have much to have at least lethal dose. One thing that we know that he did not do as far as the information we currently have is never underestimated how much to put in the capsules so whether it be one hundred percent are a thousand percent it worked one hundred percent of the time right that it was ingested. Well it's like sex panther like sixty percent of the time it works all the time so just go through this a little more in depth because not everybody As old as we are here in the garage but in nineteen eighty two the bottles available for purchase by the public. As you pointed out. Captain were not safety sealed. Nowadays if you buy a bottle of tylenol or other medication the bottle tylenol specifically has a silver foil. Safety seal in closing it and the box is glued shut back. Then you just untucked the box lid and then screwed off the cap of the bottle. This timers cases the fbi called it changed the packaging process in the united states for ever for of our when extra strength tylenol was returned to the market in late. Nineteen eighty two. It was re introduced with a triple seal tamper resistant. Packaging a bottle. Encased in plastic wrapping inside of glued shut box and the federal anti-tampering. Act of nineteen eighty. Three change the way. The food and drugs were to be packaged. Nationwide in may consumer product tampering a federal crime. One these deaths also like we've talked about before the their violent death. Yeah so how does the sinai kill a person. Potassium cyanide acts very quickly to prevent the blood from absorbing oxygen from the lungs which essentially starves the body of oxygen. This causes convulsions. Cardiac arrest and then death. Both potassium and sodium cyanide are used in jewelry manufacturing and mining amongst other things in. This was incredibly surprising to me captain. Apparently.

We oughta breakfast club. Let's get to the room was. Let's talk cheryl underwood. This is the rumor report angelique on the breakfast. Close all right well. The talk is back on the air. This is after all of the controversy. Was sharon osbourne and sharon. Osbourne is clearly no longer with the show filling in also on the show was donald e. Gran he's an expert on diversity. Equity inclusion injustice also need a phillips was on this episode of trauma therapist and life coach to help guide the conversation. Now some of the things that were discussed on the show cheryl underwood did the opening statements. We haven't been together. The studio says the week of march tenth and as you may know during our break. Sharon decided to leave the top. We need to process the events of that day. And what happened sense so we can get to the healing over the next hour. We will honestly discuss what occurred and explore some of our feelings. And we'll also show you how anyone can become more comfortable with the specimen portent issues and having difficult conversations and by the end of the hour. We want everyone to fill empowered and ready to move forward array cheryl underwood also talked about the whole thing with the angry black woman. She didn't be and says she. She decided not to combat she fired. It's hard to say. Some people are saying that she chose not to come back. Some people are saying that they told her they allowed her to say that you know to save face personally but there's two different stories going around now according to cheryl underwood she didn't wanna be the angry black woman but she also can't even watch that episode. I saw a composed clear confident woman but we didn't see what was going on inside. Well i didn't want to escalate. Things was sharon because i thought i was having a conversation with a friend but also i knew i had to be an example for others to follow because i didn't want to be perceived as the angry black woman and that really scared me in a difficult to go back to that day because i just feel the trauma i feel therefore you know a little apprehensive. I love this discussion. Charlemagne to god talking. I would like to know where has not being the angry. Black woman are angry. black person got us. why are we always compromising ourselves for our oppressors. Why why can sharon osborne catching attitude come off his angry in. It's all good but a black person who has the right to be angry has to temper herself. My therapist you feels okay in black people women and men we have every right to be angry and every right to express that anger because if you are silent about your pain they'll kill you and say you enjoyed it. Zora neale bought yeah. You know there's always this whole thing about being the angry black woman as soon as you speak up for yourself. You're angry as you saw. Some type of emotion are passionate about something. You're the angry black woman. And then there's that people don't take it seriously and i'll food inside think and so i think for cheryl underwood and it's something that black women have had to deal with for ever now and not wanting to be out of control of your emotions out the question once again where has not being angry. Black woman are angry. black person got us. Not coming off. Angry has gotten us nowhere. Yes we're angry. Yes we pissed off. Yes we flip it over. Tables enough is enough to time for plants. Them all has been over and it's gotten us nowhere raise hell get angry in and you know if you're not angry and you clean up attention to what's going on in this country and i think she also felt like sharing her friend. Now is one of the things to between the two of them are. I'm sure that also affected her as well and they were on. Tv so you know. They also have said by the way that sharing is going to talk when she's ready. According to an insider she wants to give her side of the story still.

Interview with Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky

"Talk to me about going forward and connecting people and the focus. You're putting on experiences but also on the lives you can create for your host. Who in part. I think are taking equity and becoming quite important for the brand. We've just heard in london here this week. That uber has said its drivers will become workers with benefits and minimum wage. So they're getting brought into the companies. So how do you sort of to advance the experience of your host but also the people that are using the platform to rent yet to great questions. Maybe i'll start with the second question host. And then i'll go to the first one the different like let's just take us versus uber. One difference in us an uber is the founders of uber created uber because they wanted to be writers another words they said it would be awesome if i could summon a black car so they started on the buyer side. We were totally opposite. My roommate and i weren't desiring to have a service like airbnb to travel because we were too broke to even want such a service. I mean we would have loved it but we were so broke. We just wanted to way to make money so we really started as host. So in that sense. I think this is a company of hosts by host for host and even if we have veered from that in the past. We're back there. And so i'm very proud of the fact that number one host have made one hundred and ten billion dollars on our platform since we started. That's pretty cool. The next thing. I'm saying i think it's cooler. Fifty five percent of that income has gone to women most ecommerce platforms. The vast majority economics. They're not evenly distributed on airbnb. The vast majority of income is outside the united states and more than half of it goes to women. it's a pretty diverse audience. We have four million host on airbnb. Ninety percent of our hosts are individual people so there is a question. How many of these are professionals. The answer is ten percent ninety percent of individuals. The most common careers are healthcare workers schoolteachers. In students these are the three most common professions that we've seen so these are truly everyday people like my parents. My parents are social workers. And it would make sense that people who need supplemental income would be everyday people for the most part one of the things we did before it went public. Is i got a piece of advice from somebody. They said. institutionalize your intentions. So that even as a public company you can minimize conflicts. Your vision and what they really meant was wants to go public. The cement of your company gets a little harden. What do you want to bake into the company before you go public. And i said one of the things i want to bake in is to create a host endowment. I want to set aside equity for host and so one of the things we did is we took nine point. Two million shares of airbnb equity and we put it into is essentially a airbnb host endowment kind of like a college endowment where it would grow every year but then some of the appreciation would get distributed into the host each year. So that was the idea that endowment is nearly two billion dollars today and growing. I hope it's one day. Larger than most college endowments and we created a host advisory board of seventeen host from fourteen countries to advise us on how to spend that money and reinvest it back to the host community. We also allowed host to invest in our ipo. And we had. I think it was fifteen thousand host. If i'm not mistaken who invested. They bought stock at sixty eight dollars. A share as you know the stock prices at the time of this recording around triple so those hosts have done really well and if i could allowed winning more host to invest in the whatever but we had some sec regulations that limited us and so these are just some of the many things we tried to do. But i just want to say like our commitment to host just beginning. Because i've committed to putting more than one hundred million dollars in my own equity into the host endowment and we're gonna continue to invest in our host because we are nothing without our host and in the end the day everybody's more of a community anything else i mean. Yeah we are a technology company in a sense but with people are buying isn't technology and they're not buying real estate we're not like zillow wh- senator of our company our host and our people and so that leads to the second question. What is airbnb about in. Where's it going when we started airbnb. Our first tagline was travel like a human. The idea was that you were like kind of treated for who you are. And you're seen for who you are valued for who you are and that was kind of the idea. I mean it was idealistic. But i can tell you. We definitely believed it in the early days and we realized that i had these two crazy ideas when we start airbnb. These crazy beliefs and people thought i was absurd. The first idea was we thought people were fundamentally good. That sounds kind of crazy because if you open any newspaper you wouldn't think they're good. People are good wise every headline about the worst of humanity. I think there was a famous quote by a former chief justice. The united states. You said i don't read the front page of the newspaper. I read the sports section. The front pages filled the man's failures. The sports pages. Filled man successes. I kind of feel like despite what we read in the news. People are funny. Good and i can tell you that we have the data to prove it. We probably more than anyone to prove what happens. When a hundred million people live together. Mostly good things sometimes bad things but statistically people are good and the second thing is true is that people are ninety nine point nine percent the same and you would never think that today given that we are so divided and yeah we spent a lot of time energy celebrating that point one percent. That makes us different. We call that culture in other things but let's not forget that we're mostly the same deep down and if you think people are good and their most the same then you'd believe that it's better to bring them together than divide them in separate them. That was the idea behind airbnb and so real estate and housing is just the beginning. We launched a few years ago. Airbnb experiences air experiences are essentially just three hour activities where you can have a host host. One other passions. You can go to tuscany. And make pasta with grandma grandma. Non an arena. Who's like an eighty plus year old grandmother who grew up during world war. Two and tells you about living in italy during the rise of fascism and then kind of what happened after and she tells you about her famous recipe and you make pasta in her house with and then you eat around the table this alternative to going to restaurants a pretty cool alternative so we have these like really interesting experiences and i think experiences is going to be a really really big product. I thought last year was going to break out year. But of course social distancing met we put on pause but we're looking at many new ways to try just connect people again. I think this is one of the loneliest times in human history right now. I think most people listening would probably say they felt some type of loneliness in the last year. We've been so separated. And i think in life we sometimes appreciate things when they're taken away from us and human connection and travels been taken away from us and i hope that makes us value at more than ever before and i'm pretty concerned about the amount of isolation happening and i don't think that social media and digital connections are fully nourishing. We actually do need real connection with real people. And i actually think it's good. Connect people are different than you. If you wanna like bridge the divide in any country. The best answer. I've heard is to just walk in other people's shoes don't argue over the internet. No one's ever changed. Someone's mind on a youtube comment section to my knowledge. But how could you not change your mind when you walk in someone. Just home live in their home walk. In their shoes do their activities. You may not agree with them but you will find that. Most of them are good and they're mostly just like you deep

Are You On Clubhouse Yet? No? Here's What It Is And How To Get There.

"What is clubhouse. Well clubhouse is a new audio social media app well on this episode. I'm gonna tell you what i feel about clubhouse and how it has impacted me and so many. People clubhouse is big and fast growing and making continual headlines and yet it is still private. What do i mean by that. You have to be invited by an existing member of clubhouse to get and so just being on it remains something of a status symbol and some circles forbes dot com has an article titled have you joined clubhouse yet. We'll have you here says that clubhouse is a social media platform and has been sweeping the internet but with it comes an air of mystery and confusion that comes from one thing scarcity. Yep like i said you have to be invited. You can't just join clubhouse you have to be invited by someone may be a friend who has already a user much like a country club. Somebody who can recommend you who is already a part of clubhouse has to say come join me on this wonderful audio social media platform by way of texting you a special link but did you know that. The podcasting industry is expecting to pass one billion dollars. This year and the creators of clubhouse decided to turn podcasts on their head and make them into an interactive experience through clubhouse the writer of the forbes article goes on to say that one of the favorite things to do on the clubhouse app so far is to just join rooms with people you don't know and listen in on what they're talking about and that is fun. If you are on clubhouse you may have heard everything from the technical challenges to be faced on. Moore's the best for ai to take over the stock market and the best way to make grilled cheese sandwich. Why the civil war happened political views. Make tips dating advice and the list goes on and on etc etc. Some of the rooms get downright racy causing me to blush. But i have to admit that's really not too hard to do. Think about what talk radio is or used to be. And you'll get a glimpse into what clubhouse is all about and bonus you can potentially join the conversation or end up needing the conversation as a moderator but later in the forbes article the writer does say it's a lot like a podcast It is not podcasters. Keep the listeners. In a controlled setting and the podcast has a filter as far as editing goes and unlike the moderator in clubhouse the podcast or knows his guest and they talk about what can and cannot be said ahead of time and so it is clubhouse takes a little getting used to and might i add a lot of courage to raise your hand to speak. Oh yes you can speak. And here's the deal on speaking to be able to speak in a room or in a club. Two things must happen. Besides being in that particular room you must raise your hand by pressing the hand emoji on the right and the moderator must pull you up on stage to speak where everyone can hear what you have to say. Yikes sometimes i am just there to listen or contribute to the conversation it's still a little nerve racking and sometimes the moderator will automatically invite you on stage by sending an alert pox as soon as you enter the room. Don't worry you can always say maybe later and bonus there is a leave quietly button that you can push just in case you. Don't wanna be there anymore and you don't want tell anyone that you're leaving but keep in mind that if you go on stage there is no one to filter what you say. There was no bleep button. No editing there is no nothing and a recent issue of entrepreneur india. I found this freshly valued at one billion dollars. After a reported. One hundred million dollars funding for the clubhouse app. The audio chat platform has been a hit with silicon valley investors. I bet unexpected appearances on clubhouse from elon. Musk and mark zuckerberg to anthony hopkins as well as tons of entertainers and celebrities. And so it is all the entertainers politicians. The celebrities. the musicians have made clubhouse participants notice and become part of this incredible app the live clubhouse room five thousand people and was getting so overloaded with someone like elon musk that some individuals reportedly created secondary listening rooms on clubhouse as well as other platforms such as youtube so everyone could enjoy what the celebrity or entertainer was saying a few days later. Musk tweeted that he had agreed to do a clubhouse with american rapper and record producer kanye west ee. Leon also invited. Russia president vladimir putin for a conversation on the platform the kremlin described this proposal as Very interesting but added that they would need to understand what it was all about before committing in january clubhouse said that it was working on introducing a creator grant program. That's so cool. It's too monetarily. Support emerging clubhouse creators and unlike the large social networks that we all are common with which have monetize their audience by selling ads. We all know that clubhouses monetization features have tipping paid rooms or premium features for power users. Clubhouse is about a real time exchange of ideas and beliefs an off the cuff commentary. Who doesn't like that and fans of clubhouse are converging to it because they want to see the unscripted off-camera interpretation of the people they look to for news entertainment politics or anything else they care about but right. Now here's something in the clubhouse app you can make yourself or your company known a room schedule events ahead of time or do your podcast from your club. And ps by the way this even a way to record it do a little marketing. Find your like minded people by joining a room. Invite a well known guest to speak. Make connections isn't that where it's all about anyway and as of right now i have invited six friends. One responded my niece. Undoubtedly most people are still finding out about the new audio social media app clubhouse. Hey if any one of my listeners here would like to be a part of the clubhouse community. i want to invite you. I have two or three invites still hanging around waiting for that special person. Maybe it's you

The Controversy Behind the FBA Rollup Strategy

"This is mike and welcome to this edition of the e com crew podcasts. How's it going dave. You make a better mood now. We got the chit chat a little bit and we were making fun of each other so before we even started the podcast. So we were talking about game stock game stock. You're talking about game stock. I was talking about the actual company. Game stop but that was. That was pretty funny. It is like the hardest name to say game stop stock for somebody dyslexic because me is even harder. Yeah there's one that i had to tell you about line. That's inappropriate for the podcast. I let something slip the day and the the warehouse here because there's a there's a tongue twister of products that i miss it. I misspoke was pretty funny. Definitely inappropriate for the For the podcast. There's definitely tongue twisters out there for sure. Yeah there are having a hard one game. Stop stock game. Stop stock in the speaking of crazy investments one of the the craziest investments. These days is people investing in what we do. You know these amazon companies. Because i think that a reality is people on wall street or people with lots of money in places all over the world or looking for ways to put their cash to work in a zero interest rate environment right and the reality is as you can buy an amazon business much like what we do with ice wraps or while baby or off roading gear or color it and get basically a thirty three percent cash on cash return which is a whole lot better than a half a percent interest in your in your bank account and so this is starting to really garner a lot of attention from third party investors out there. Yeah it's crazy. I guess that's kind of topic of this podcast. Are they crazy or the ecommerce owners selling the crazy ones because obviously there's been a huge fan of these roll ups. I was looking at a list. I think about least ten plus with over one hundred million dollars each and capitalization so they have over one hundred million dollars each just to go out and buy e. Commerce businesses specifically amazon businesses is. That seems to be really what they're going after for some reason they've ignored shop stores and like kind of traditional direct to consumer brands which are selling predominantly through their websites and focusing only on these amazon browns. And that's the interesting part i find. Is that the kind of ignoring the great unicorn businesses that we want you and most of our listeners. These websites which don't rely on amazon we want those businesses but the investors seem to amazon only businesses or at least predominantly amazon businesses. I think there's a good reason for that. I want to choose my words carefully here. I think a lot of the has to do with the fact that making money on amazon is kind of easy in a lot of ways. Right i mean again. We never try to make it sound easy and it isn't necessarily easy but on a scale of one to ten or a spectrum of things that you could be doing to make a living is on the easier end you know. There's a lot of things amazon. Takes care of that. You just don't have to think about that. Do make it easier. And you're comparing apples to apples between an amazon business and a direct to consumer shop affi- type store. The amazon one is easier to operate. There's there's no warehouse for you to have because amazon handles that. You don't need to handle returns amazon handles that you need very little customer service. Because amazon handles the bulk of that. You don't need to pick pack and ship. The items amazon handles out and they do it in a way. That is better than you'll ever be

New antitrust legislation would check the power of tech giants

"Arguably the biggest problem with big tech. Is you know the bigness. A few giant companies gobble up their competition owned the digital advertising and web hosting markets control the information ecosystem and sometimes control the distribution of their own competition so far though these worries haven't led to regulation now democratic senator amy klobuchar who leads the senate subcommittee on antitrust introduced a bill intended to check the power of tech. Giant's it focuses mostly on acquisitions to prevent huge companies from buying potential competitors and it would force companies that control more fifty percent of a single market to prove that an acquisition would not reduce competition. Here's senator club shar. We all know that misinformation has been rampant on social media and it is greatly. Set us back. But there's another much more insidious problem and that is that any company that was starting to come and do cool things got bought and i think maybe you could look at this legislation as basically a reply to mark zuckerberg's email when he said about they're looking at what's happened instagram. These businesses are nascent but the networks established. The brands are already meaningful. And get this. And if they grow to a large scale they could be very disruptive to us. Google has ninety percent market share. Right now they are literally taking on a government of a major country in australia when the prime minister says hey we're gonna start making you guys pay for content and they say back. No you're not we're going to withdraw from your market and you'll have no search engine and a big part of this. It sounds like is funding these agencies right making sure that the ftc which is charged with a lot of this actually has some teeth exactly and of a numbers can't lie the ftc in nineteen eighty at one thousand seven hundred nineteen employees by twenty eighteen down to one thousand one hundred two. You cannot take on the biggest companies. The world has ever known trillion dollar companies with bandaids and duct tape. And that's why senator grassley has join me on a portion of this bill to up the fees on megamerger so we can put in over one hundred million dollars to each agency so they can actually do their job and this isn't just about tech. There's only to cat food. Companies that control most of the market. There's only two online travel agencies. You think you're getting all their choices. Go look at. Who owns them.

Investments that support their growth carries a graduate of the university of florida's levin college of law where she earned a juris doctorate degree shows holds in history of english from covenant. College carry welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me very so i could ask you. How did you end up being a lawyer from studying history and english extensive amounts of reading and writing. The really is i. You know when. I was In actually in high school had an opportunity to participate in a youth leadership program That included a track on the judicial system. And i just kinda got hooked on on everything that was involved in of course. Reading and writing is a big part to sorta leaned into those superpowers. I guess so. How did you pass from being a j. d. lead you to amazon and out small business owners. The phone question I do. I've today describe myself as a recovering lawyer. A my favorite time. Yes you know the thing that was fun for me about practicing law was you. You get to spend all day identifying issues in solving problems and so i really From day one enjoyed solving ambiguous problems. Where you had to figure out the root cause of whatever issue or opportunity was in front of you and then inventor way to the solution and so that took me from practicing law Up through a variety of roles on the business side where i've gotten to solve increasingly problems. focused on solving challenges For usually for others which leads to my my role today which is very good to spend all day everyday focused on helping solve issues challenges and make the world a better place for small businesses. I think a lot of people carry don't realize how many small businesses actually work through the amazon channel. Tell us about that So amazon in the us alone on amazon works with more than two million independent partners. They come in all shapes and sizes celena stores. They operate delivery service businesses. They use tools trim. Aws a build alexa skills. They published books with kindle direct publishing so amazon supporting small medium. Sized businesses is a fundamental part of our work there. It's a core part of what we do everyday. An extension of our customer centric culture. Our success depends on their success and our global head. Carrie i was gonna say in our in our store worldwide. We have over a million independent businesses selling in the account for over half of all products sold. And we've seen their sales continue to outpace our retail so we know that customers value them in this election they bring in an incredible way. The amazing statistic that over half of everything purchased on amazon is sold through independent third parties. Small medium sized businesses. That it's not really amazon. Really is the amazon marketplace right absolutely. Yeah the outlive sewing partners. The independent businesses bring those products role and bringing such a wonderful and diverse array of products across all categories. That customers enjoy now. Even i know most of us were surprised by covid. Nineteen who would know that once in every one hundred years right what happen last year but was my biggest surprise is that when ordered some from amazon. It couldn't get here in two days. I thought would never ever happen. Carry tell us about the challenges. They're really amazon. Face in the small business partners did during the height of the covid nineteen crisis absolutely right kobe. Nineteen created many challenges for small businesses. We you know despite it. We were encouraged to see that sense and through that time. Small companies have continued to grow with amazon. You know twenty twenty the number of us long medium sized businesses that surpassed one million dollars sales grew by more than twenty percents and more than thirty seven hundred surpassed him in sales for the first time. Which is just a really great business milestone for any prisoners owner. I'm those businesses have created an estimated one point one million jobs which is phenomenal. It's such an important part. Is you know what keeps our communities going and so we've seen as customers of increasingly shopping online on the past year. The businesses were using e commerce. House channel have continued to sustain grow. I'm in our commitment to supporting them. And adopting for the future has has never been more steadfast done a number of things both continuing work. We've been doing for years and new things. We did in twenty twenty to continue supporting them through that journey. And i think that's really the key role. The amazon plays a lot of companies have got into e commerce for the first time during covid nineteen and like all right. I'm gonna go set up a store. But they no incomes and i think that is really the key of getting involved in the amazon marketplace. Because you already have so many people looking for products right there absolutely One of my favorite stories. I think one of my favorite projects from twenty twenty was last year redesigned prime date support small businesses and we committed more than one hundred million dollars to help their growth over the shopping event through the holiday season and that included holding our biggest small business promotion. Yeah so during that promotion customers. Purchase dollars and products from participating. Small business selling on amazon. Ten dollars credit to spend on prime day. It's on a two week. Lead up to prime day. Small businesses included in that promotion generated more than nine hundred million dollars. In sales on prime day independent third party sellers had their two biggest as ever surpassing three and a half billion in sales which is nearly sixty percent year over year increase and even more growth than our retail business and then it also came with stories like the story of lia foods actually a seller based north aurora forty minutes outside of chicago and she makes african inspired spices but The fun part about her story. It demonstrates the power of selling on amazon and an event like prime day to find those new customers over to help those new customers find you. She shared that coming out of advent not only has she almost doubled her single day sales but her daily started trending upwards with all that new customer acquisition those stories. We really enjoy seeing so those who've never really men sold their price to amazon. What kind of rain moments are there. And what is it in a cost to market on amazon. Yes so our public schedule. So if you if any seller or someone considering becoming a feller looks online at those public public information fees range from eight to fifteen percent depending on product type and for business selling amazon. Really do that as a marketing cost because of the access to that three hundred million customers that it creates and then beyond the monthly in referral fees. everything's optional so sellers choose. What's right for their business. We offer as i mentioned a variety of services in programs than in its pick. What's right for you right so if you want to lean into advertising their options for you could choose what suits for your business if you want to move away from fulfilling your on products create more bandwidth for yourself to do other things there options to leverage by amazon into leverage the customer service support that comes without. So it's it's very much a choose your own adventure but each business owner can select the right fit for them and what fits their

An Apple Ad-pocalypse For Everyone?

"You know about those changes to ad tracking that apple is going to flip the switch on on ios. Soon you know how facebook has said this will hurt small businesses and also them quite directly. They've also admitted. Well as this ad pacalypse creeps ever closer. There is increasing chatter about how big this move might actually be for basically everyone let me hit some of the most recent takes for you i. What prompted me to lead with this. Today is that in their earnings last night. Snap had to warn that. The coming changes by apple to idea a could have a materially adverse effect on their business and it wasn't just snap either unity also came out and said idea changes will hit the pocketbooks of all mobile game developers quoting cnbc. Unity software said in its earnings report. That the changes will affect the way mobile game developers get and quote how they optimize lifetime. Customer value and quote although it's difficult to estimate our guidance assumes idea changes begin in the spring and will reduce revenue by thirty million dollars or three percent of revenue in two thousand twenty one. The company wrote in prepared remarks for its q. Four earnings report snap chief financial officer derek. Anderson said the apple changes would present a risk of interruption to demand after their implemented quote. It is not clear yet. What the longer term impact of those changes may be for the top line momentum of our business and this may not be clear until several months or more after the changes are implemented. He said quote so coincident with that. I know that this is long. Reads day but i encourage you to check out ben. Thompson's free article from strategically this week because it is the most sober and i opening look at this situation that i've seen anywhere thompson did a qna with mobile marketing analyst. Eric su firt and he had some interesting things to say about. Apple's true motivations and all of this and how these changes could ripple out to affect not only game developers but things like chiappa fi and the smaller businesses on that platform. I highly highly recommend. You read the whole thing. But i'm going to quote two parts for you first up. This is ben quote the thing that is always kind of weird to me about this. Is i think people underestimate and frankly i think apple underestimates the degree to which apple's growth in services revenue growth in. The app store is because of facebook and that facebook and apple have had this very symbiotic relationship. facebook has done. All of apple's dirty work and apple has harvested thirty percent on the back end just by virtue of owning the app store. The question i have is. Is it possible. That apple is shooting themselves in the foot here and their services revenue actually takes a meaningful hit because they've destroyed the engine driving it and they didn't even realize it because they actually didn't understand facebook's role in this and then this is eric's answer quote. I don't think so. I think apple very much recognizes the role that it plays in the app ecosystem which is the distribution engine for apps. And i think that's what apple doesn't like. I think apple sees that the app store has basically become irrelevant as a point of content discovery. It's basically this kind of frictional annoying moment between clicking an ad and installing an app almost all discovery happens via ads or word of mouth. And i think what apple is doing in this in recognizing the power that facebook has in terms of influencing which apps become big which apps are popular. How people are using their iphones. Essentially in recognizing that apple is trying to regain control of that because if apple cripples advertising which is doing mobile advertising this is all happening within the context of all this stuff. That's happening on the browser which we don't need to go down that rabbit hole but apple has been the instigator of all of that too if apple cripples mobile advertising than the app store becomes the primary discovery point for apps again and apple decides how people use our iphones apple decides which are the most popular. And by the way. That's a position that apple used to occupy twenty twelve twenty. Thirteen apple was kingmaker. If you've got featured your company valuation might increase by one hundred million dollars it was really important to make that pilgrimage to apple. Go to cupertino and beg for featuring please feature as please give us the headline featuring because that would make such a big difference to our company then in that way apple got to influence. What kind of apps made and how you made them. So my sense here is that apple wants to regain that control and quote and then from further down in the piece. This is ben again. The great thing from google's perspective is they get to copy everything. Apple does which completely benefits them because apple wants to kill cookies. Google's like that's fine. We have the browser. We have the app store and we're justified in doing blatantly anti-competitive things because we're just copying apple. The apple. google duopoly is really ruling. Everything and this is eric's response. Yeah google silence on this issue has been really intriguing. Because i think they've got to feel like a little bit stuck. It's like well okay. We're going to slow copy apple on any privacy initiative. It does because we don't want to allow apple to create a competitive advantage around being seen as the privacy centric mobile platform but at the same time they run an ad network so day can't come out and demonize targeted advertising. Because well that's how they make some substantial portion of their money. Ben interjects here. They're being sued for antitrust. And this is so blatantly. Anti-competitive and eric responds right exactly. They've got a fine line to walk. And i think they've you to a very shrewd approach. Which just like you said. Kind of copy. What apple is doing but doing it in a way that is not a full manifestation of that and quote again read. The whole thing cannot recommend it highly enough are we all of us in the tech ecosystem facing an ad pacalypse

Why We Think We Need to Hire 2 More Salespeople

Journey to $100 Million

Why We Think We Need to Hire 2 More Salespeople

"Why we think we need to hire two more sales people in twenty twenty one americans olsen and i'm days join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. What's happening it's eric. J olson kevin. And i have concluded that we need to more sales people at array digital in twenty twenty one to achieve our revenue goals for the year. So let me give you a little bit of background here. We ended the year with about two point. Three five million dollars annual recurring revenue. We want to get up to three point five million of annual recurring revenue by the end of twenty twenty one which is only about eleven months away and by the way if you start taking out things like two or three weeks for the holidays. It's more like ten months away. It's amazing how quickly you lose time throughout the year but we didn't analysis and what we concluded was that every single month at a rate digital our overall monthly recurring revenue increases by about two thousand seven hundred fifty dollars every month. So we sign on more deals than that but we lose. Some class may have lost. Some old classes have been with us for several years. In general on average about twenty seven fifty and what that meant to us was that if nothing else changed right now we would go from two point. Three million to about two point seven million by the end of the year. If we didn't do anything different now also. We have recently hired a second salesperson. Joe if joe doesn't those numbers the two point three two point seven that doesn't factor joe because he's just us recently started to actually sell after a period of training and having a couple of small deals if he gets up to quota the way we expect him to with a bunch of factors filled in he'll bring in about another five hundred thousand dollars of annual recurring revenue. That takes us from two point seven to about three point two. We are sort of our three point five million dollar annual recurring revenue goal. How do we go about filling that. Well there's a couple of ways we do it one is. We could just hope for the best. We did that last year and it didn't work so hoping for the best is not a great solution to this problem to. We try to run a ton of ads and get inbound traffic while running. Ads has never really produced. Anything russ which is interesting. Because we're digital marketing agency. We run on is for our clients. Most of our clients are be to see whereas we are b. two b. and we have an arguably complex and somewhat long sales process is a lot of explaining that has to happen in. A lot of reviewing auditing or whatnot is not just like buying something on amazon where you just click and and you're done. This is a much more significant commitment. That people are making on as have never really worked for us as a b. two b. company ourselves. The other way is we could market ourselves to this doubt. Marketing is what we have historically done to bring in new business. You know we do podcast. We do lunch time. Lives we do a whole bunch of in person networking events which may not come back for another year because of covid but we do a ton of marketing and brand awareness. There's really yes we could do more. Of course. it could always do more of that but we do a ton of that already. What we need to do is you know. That's an option. But it's not a great option. So you know what are already listed are not wonderful options hoping for the best advertising away out or marketing your way out the fourth option really is hire more salespeople so we concluded that's probably the best way to get this additional revenue that we want imagine that hiring people to get more revenue. Yeah that's the way business works so we want to hire at least one salesperson. We decided to hire to too because like there's a really good chance that one of them won't work out so well we want to do is bring on a couple of people at once. Train them both at the same time. Look if we hope for the best with these two people will far exceed our sales goal right if both of them are just amazing then We'll be way past three point five by the end of the year. But you know history shows that not every salesperson or even every person in the company works out. Well we don't want to do is just hire one and bank. All of our hose injuries for this resolution and getting up to this revenue goal on that one additional higher and then it just doesn't work out for some reason so we're going to hire to was basically music the backup plan so we have a job ad out on envied right now. We'll probably run it as a linked in job at as well but if you are a sales person anywhere in the united states preferably near the east coast just to align with the rest of the team's time zones. Then i'd love to hear from you if you would go

Clubhouse Raises A New Round At $1B Valuation

"I'd like to think that this news is a direct result of the fact that i spoke on stage at josh constanze weekly press clubroom on clubhouse on thursday night. Paul and the gang saw how successful that went. And we're like quick. Pull the trigger on this for sure. I'm joking of course. But in a blog post yesterday clubhouse announced a new funding round led by a sixteen z. Word on the street is that it's at a one billion dollar valuation. Which if you'll recall six months ago people were saying it was crazy that a sixteen z led a one hundred million dollar valuation also clubhouse says it will soon begin work on an android version of the app and it is actively beginning tests around paying creators or at least allowing creators to charge and earn quoting techcrunch. The plans around monetization routes for craters appear to be relatively open ended at this point with clubhouse saying it'll be launching first tests around each of the three areas it mentions tipping tickets and subscriptions over the next few months. It sounds like these could be similar to something like a patriotic built right into the platform. Tickets are a unique option. That would go well with clubhouses more formal round table discussions and could also be away. That more orgnisations could make use of the platform for hosting virtual events during a regular virtual town hall. The apps founders hosts on the platform ceo. Paul davison revealed that clubhouse now has two million weekly active users. It's also worth noting that clubhouse says it now has over one hundred and eighty investors in the company which is a lot for a series. B though many of those are likely small independent investors with very little steak and quote. I thought martin bryant had decent analysis of this in his big revolution newsletter. This morning quote. People are excited about clubhouse because it's like a grownup version of twitch clubhouse is the first opportunity for professionals to build a presence and an audience in a near zero barrier to entry live media app at its worst. This means. there's a lot of lincoln. Style fake insight and people trying to be gurus but it also means there are a lot of really interesting conversations featuring people you might not hear from on other platforms. The twitch analogy seems to fit with clubhouses monetization strategy. The plan seems to be provided a platform and money making opportunities. Then sit back and take a cut as we've seen with the stories format once something is a success in one place. You can't stop it popping up all over the place so far. The only notable clubhouse clone is twitter spaces which is still in testing but expect live audio chat to be tried in all sorts of slight variations across different apps. You already use for. I suspect linked in is already exploring what it could do with this format. The challenge for clubhouse is maintaining its value as a destination everyone else offers the same features helping creators. Get paid is one part of this. But ensuring those craters provide enough reasons for listeners. To keep coming back we'll be a greater challenge. But then you can stream video game footage in a number of places including facebook and people keep coming back to twitch so. The problem isn't insurmountable quote

It's supposed to be a generational great. Come on man come on tomorrow to mark. Among on if sean con come on man is about time you get serious if you can go ahead and get yourself but yourself in the position where hey you know what. We've got a really good thing going here. In terms of the future we covered that bear. And we've got all of this to work with you know. How many times would love to be in that position. Already mentioned the fact in the nba raphael stone in general managers. In general in that league you ask them what would you rather have in terms of rebuilding program. All of these guys who say man. I'm a multiple picks a lot of salary cap space to go ahead and do my thing. Would you get that injectable even with a hard salary cap now.

And we don't know where myers philosophy because well. He's never coached. He's never coached in the nfl so he might have a philosophy all this kind of stuff. What is it based off of. It can be based on what he did in college because college in the nfl completely different animals. Yeah you might have a philosophy of how you deal with people in college. What when you're dealing with people in college. They're eighteen to twenty two years old when you're going to be different of course and you know this coming central tell you. It's a lot of different dealing with grown men who have mortgages who are building their brands. Who have kids who have other responsibilities lot different way. You work with them. Sure in a college situation. You are of the defacto you are. You are the maker you are the guy you are the when i say jump you answer. How high when i say run through brick wall put your head down and go through that brick wall inc a college. You can get away with that stuff in the. Nfl is not. You're not coach. Employees i mean. This isn't supervisor employees working together. This is a collective understanding in terms of where we're going so yeah you wouldn't have any philosophy and you can have. You can try to find players that are into fit that philosophy but how rigid is that philosophy going to be. If you're urban meyer in college will you can go ahead and you can recruit anybody who you want to. You can text. You can call and you can do all these things and you can go ahead and develop a relationship over the years so you can even have a better understanding it. This young man is going to be able to fit the philosophy that you have in college. You can do that shit and the nfl you can't and the nfl is a business. And if you speaking about philosophy you better think about the philosophy. A win. Because i used to do all that bullshit about. Yeah you know. I bring these young men into the league. And you know these guys are young and some of these come from underprivileged backgrounds and these guys never have a checking account before. These guys don't know how to do this and these guys don't know how to do that so for me as a coach especially being a black coach with these kids coming into the nfl coming in basically as kids even though there are twenty one twenty two years old. I feel it's a responsibility for me to show them the ways of live and the show them how to do things the have them grow and mature of by the time that they retire that they'll be able to have a foundation for them to be successful one.

The (Beauty) Business of Philanthropy with Karissa Bodnar

"Lot of people you know. They write gen generals and they say i wanna be in. You know this part of the business. How do i get there and to be really honest. I don't always know how to respond. Because you know. I know where i am in the business and i know the steps that i took but You know they might say. I wanna be a perfumer. I wanna start my own liner. I wanna be a makeup artist. And i don't always know how to respond How how would you respond to a question like that because for you. You didn't know how to get to where you were but you got there. What was the thing that means you get. There was just focus or asking around. Like how did you get to where you are. Oh it's such a great question just so specifically to being beauty product developer. I took any job. I could get in the beauty industry and ben was always looking at it through the lens of okay. I'm a makeup artist right now. But how would i create a product. Let me learn everything i can about. Let me google got ingredient. Means if i don't have access to expert and really a lot of it is just that passion coming through. And i think when i got hired on xtra. Sonic graduated from college. I got my foot in the door always with an eye. I wasn't directly to impact development. When i started but it was always expressing how much i wanted to be in product development so then when i finally got the chance i was like i am not gonna let this go by and i think just so many of the skills when you're starting out in your career or transferable whether it's product development or marketing and so at the end of the day when you're first starting out a lotta censure making power points on spreadsheets. You're you're doing a lot of a lot of tasks that you can. You can transfer But i would say a showing that initiative in the passion for whatever you want to do so for me. It was product development. I think people will pick up on that and they'll wanna mentor. You okay. that's really great advice. Okay thank you. plus your husband's a product developer. So we have to save his his advice matches up with choruses. I'm gonna ask him later. He jesse my husband. I meant chris's husband or something. Yes yes i. I just think it's interesting because i really do feel sometimes a little bit after somebody writes. I don't know how you feel john. Somebody writes us like why be x. Person i don't really know if i'm giving them the best advice I can just tell them how. I reached my thing but yeah like absorb as much as you can express your interest to anyone who will listen. I wanna be you know here and hopefully you know not everyone is going to care and take you under their wing. Unfortunately that's the reality but somebody will know somebody will hear what you're interested in that i'll tell you this person or that's and showing expressing that interest but i just think it's awesome that you did know that you wanted to do product development and you just kept on finding away you know that. Make up artists to product of outbursts. Such a cool trajectory. We don't always hear that on fat mascara t tell us more. Let's keep going. Let's keep going into your story. Yes well and and i do have to say like i recognize what a gift it was that i knew that when i was so young. And not everybody's past and so what i do want to say is that first of all. I don't have all the answers. Second of all you're never too young and you're never too old to be who you always be so you can always invites You know you can always change your mind and at the end of the day my wife and my driver is philanthropy that i get to do every single day. Our incredible employees in product development. Like i get to do the thing that i have dreamt of doing my entire life so i feel really blessed awesome. It's very inspiring. You're never too young. Says like twenty eight year olds for you when you when you started your company. Well that's that's the funny thing about the term ceo. I'm such a work in progress right i. i'm. I'm absolutely not oh come on to answer. The question pat started. I believe was twenty-five but please it's a person. Thank you so much. Yeah you know. it's funny. I have really long hair out saving. Cut it for over a year. Oh my gosh. Look the pandemic who and i have always had longer hair in one of the things i love to do as locks of love but i was actually just talking to some of our team members about it. I said you know to me when i when i started writing. Cosmetics is really tried to look older because nobody really took me. I like to wear that right Cut my hair shorter to look more mature. And look more like i could fit in manhattan and everything like that but So so now. Having longer hair is like. I'm by thirties. Now and i can have longer hair but you know it was the. I've made plenty of mistakes an absolutely a work in progress. But it's i've had a lot of grace From from people around me throughout this journey can can. I ask you about when you started this company. I mean from the very beginning you know. Social good was sort of baked into the premise. Right yes can you tell us about why that is if and do you think that's a necessity of every business. These days or was that was that unique. That the time that you did it. So i'm not here to say what other people should do for their business. But i can absolutely say that my y. End what has truly been in. The dna of thrive cosmetics from the very beginning is our philanthropy giving back that we do from the very beginning. When i started the business in two thousand fifteen that every time somebody bought a product we would be giving back and now it's grown bigger than i ever dreamed given over one hundred million dollars worth of products. Now it feels it feels so surreal to say it out loud dollars. Isn't that crazy. But honestly it's thanks to our customers. Our community are giving partners and our boys are are giving powered by our community which you know our employees have a say in who we give back to our customers have a say in how we give back and that's why it's when a say do have like vote. How does that work literally are if you want to tell us a charity that you want us to give back to. You can go on five. Cosmetics dot com and we have a giving page where you could nominate a giving partner. And then we do have internal giving committees. You know in the beginning when it was just a couple of us in a room working together and shipping product and everything like that we mer service all same time as worshiping product of everybody went to every single giving events and We're involved directly with every Charity and we want it now that our company has grown from an employee perspective. We wanna make sure that our employees are still involved so people do have the option of one nominating a charity that they want us to give to whether they're an employee a customer or somebody who's never bought from us but they just in our our community and then also we haven't internal Committee where people any employees no matter what department their engine joined the committee.

John bogs, it's a red light. I've had players in the past say they don't want to go to certain states because they're going to get hammered by taxes. Obviously that affects the bottom line. There you go. So. I and you can't blame someone an entire year's. And worth of salary and not a small salary that remember will you and I talked two years back about you know, when Phil Mickelson was criticized Seyni might wanna move from California when they started increasing the taxes, and he got blasted by it, then you and I actually did the figures over a ten year period with what he makes. And we said it could be anywhere between he would lose between fifty and one hundred million dollars which at that time. Remember he was interested in buying part of ball team. And we said if if you're doing financial planning, and you wish to have that kind of money to participate in buying something big that's going to factor into it. Right. Fifty to one hundred million dollars. Even if you're making fifty to one hundred million dollars a year. You don't throw away fifty to one hundred million just because you're making it every year, if you know that you can say that over a period of ten years, you're going to do everything possible to do that.

"Because like for some reason Sony's giving us x million dollars to make this movie. Let's not question that generosity and just go all the way with it. Because we we might not ever make another one of these movies doing pretty well over one hundred million dollars domestic and I'm hoping it's good enough to to give us a sequel. We'll see, but I also love this movie Spiderman into spider verse it really shows the pair of animation by the way, like you're only limit with animation is your imagination like, that's it. That's pretty much it, and I'm sure budget and stuff too. But really, that's it. But how did it take so long for somebody to try something really fresh and new, you know, yes, you can do anything. But but the industry sort of falls into this groove of what everybody else does we do as well. And the fact that this movie broke the mold in such a bold way. And and like you say Dave really embraced comic book story. Telling comic book, visualization managed to translate that in a way that didn't feel goofy. That didn't feel like it took something away from it that actually felt additive. It's it's amazing. It's an amazing movie. Also have to say, it's a brave movie for breaking away from just being completely CG film. You know, and I I love the incredible. I level out of what Pixar is doing. I do feel like we're seeing just so many of those because it's pretty easy to produce. Once he creates a models. Yeah. A lot of work goes into it. But I am I am a traditional animation fan like in my in my bones. It's what I grew up watching. So a lot of this movie was, you know, hand sell painted as well combined with lot of digital tech. It's something I love so much. That's why I'm a big fan of enemy because really what what's tremendous. There is like the imagination of a lot of those craters of like me as Ocoee, and everyone where you know, the way you create something just by drawing, it you could tell entire story like that. That always fascinated me. This movie captures at Saint feel completely. I would also like just say quickly that there's a fantastic article. On slash from dot com. As we record this. And I'm not going to get. I don't know who wrote it. I polish is a sit was it a really delves into some of the wonderful special choices that were made in how the movie conveys action and uses tropes from comic books to to enhance visual vocabulary of well worth reading..

So I'm not going to complain about it, and I won't gift becoming the story to someone who would love a copy of it some. But another glow up moment of twenty eight team, which is in the same vein, the Obama portrait's, right? So yes. So the Obama portrait's Michelle Obama portrait was painted by the khanate Wiley, can they Wiley and Amy Cheryl d- unveiled her portrait of Michelle Obama as she along with Hindu Wylie became the first black Americans or excuse me, African Americans to paint the Smithsonian's official presidential portraits. It's beautiful. If you've not had an opportunity to go and see it's you absolutely should because I mean. It is it is the pictures. Do it Justice. But I mean to see it in person is just like. It is breathtaking. So if you can you live in the DC area, or if you're visiting anytime soon make sure that you had the national portrait gallery in check those out. Absolutely because they are really something. Absolutely. What you got next. Okay. So. Let's talk about do Ernie and how she has joined the hundred million dollar club of directors with films that have grossed one hundred million dollars in earnings with a wrinkle in time, which was a total mood. I mean, you know, and I've heard that they're they've been mixed reviews about wrinkle in time. But I thought it was phenomenal. I was okay. So I think we touched on that. But I had a bit of issue with the only because I did love wrinkle in time as a book. But I also realized that it is a very whimsical book. It is you know, it is it is about other dimensions and things like that. And it leaves a lot of room for interpretation and also for creativity in developing a film. And so it was already huge that black women was able to adapt it into a film. You know what I'm saying? And I thought they did a really good job of it doesn't follow the book. Exactly. But if I was the premise, and like how they put their little spin on it. And it was for children. It was not for you adults. That is. A lot millennials went into the theater with expectations. That were probably, you know. Maybe a little unreasonable given given I mean, we go in and we wanna see you remember and see things as we remember them. But you know, things change in eve all in really didn't have a problem with the interpretation of the book. I mean, and I mean, if you read I mean, most most movies that have been based on books have I mean, if you've read Hidden Figures, and then you went to see Hidden Figures, you know, that the movie was actually just about maybe twelve percent of the book. Like, the story that was you know, the plot of the movie was purple. Yeah. I mean, like all of these things so we have to we have to take these things with the grain of salt. The bottom line is able to burn it is out here out here. Amongst directors. And she had a, you know, a quote that I really respect with regard in her comments about after receiving the award. She said, you know, it's a lovely room to be in. But I can't wait for more sisters to be here. Because I mean, the bottom line is, you know, we're still unrepresented in just about every field. So we have you know, little steps that were making strides to. Just take over as little should. I love this. She said that though I love that was what her response was like, I'm very honored. I I'm I'm very very happy to be here lovely dresses, beautiful gowns. But I can't wait to see more of us in the place. My next favorite moment.

Horn in the middle of a, hurricane I mean this is nothing I mean. This is really, I don't think it's any, big deal but. Apparently Trump was discussing. How to pair off and. The, amount. Of. Money and and for some reason or another he thought I can't find the, actual relative date they think this occurred but they said it was before the two. Thousand sixteen election so there's a few? Things I, want to know number one is why was leaked what's, the purpose of this is the purpose of this to make Trump nervous probably right. Right, to, put, that out there to. Put pressure on oh. Allen yeah to maybe. Make you, know what. I would just do any sort of pressure with Trump because he lets his mouth in his Twitter finger get ahead of. Him so, he might even just, say things that, hurt his. Case to, begin with just because he's trying to get in front of. What the, tape may have or what, he may have, sad everybody, should write, this down as I say this right now because this is. This is, what's going to. Happen you, know the whole, talk about the FIS warranty yesterday there's, a big story today that we had before anybody else did about the Janine Pirro and Whoopi breakdowns you see it, was everywhere Backstage Jeannine Peres. Said she was so upset she was spitting on me and I love that my kids used to say. That when I would scream My dad's dad you're spitting. On us anyway so but, the here's a tape. That's gonna live is that you don't need a warrant If you are in if you. Are intercepting, calls to foreign nationals the NSA so, if this is what's. Going to happen Donald Trump is going to be on tape I mean if if he's going, to be indicted it'll, be. For this he's, on tape talking to a, Russian oligarch like the guy the cat that brought the the the land from him right They, call them the fertilizer king he purchased a home from Donald Trump for one hundred million dollars. A year and a, half before he paid forty million well ninety five and. Forty five fifty million dollar profit for Trump, and then he toured down so if you. Have on, tape somewhere them discussing that that's money, laundering that's that's like. That's it right there so but you'd say to yourself at that was out there wouldn Muller, just come forward with it Or does, he lied somewhere, else well I mean. Who, else other than the president that's my only thing I read an op Ed piece in the I think it was in the hill today and it was, talking about this the guy was he wasn't four? Trump, and, he is making a. Case, that one of the things Peter Struck said to his girlfriend there's no big. There there you remember that line oh yeah maybe. Talking about Trump yeah but we don't know. How much struck his seat struck as an FBI agent so he's not in. Part of the independent counsel so he would know everything that he has this is the thing that you'll find out. When you watch the looming tower this was our problem back in? The, late nineties, is the FBI and CIA and? NSA never spoke to each other now they do that all changed I don't know how much they have anyway so this is.
