How I Built Resilience: Alberto Perlman of Zumba
"Alberto we had John Foley, Peleton on a couple of weeks ago and saving Lincoln a bar three. Obviously, the industry as a whole has just been absolutely decimated, right? I mean twenty four hour fitness file for bankruptcy gyms across the country are struggling. Many of them may not survive at the same time working from home is really you know Anybody who's tried to get dumbbells online knows it's impossible to find them right now. Right I heard. There's a black market for dumbbells. Yeah. How has the Economic Crisis Affected Zimba? So so we set out and said, let's base our response to the pandemic and we started seeing this in January and February because we have instructors in Titan and our instructors in China were telling us hey, this is really bad. You guys have to prepare for this because if this. Gets out. This is not good. So we said we have to do three things. One most important thing how do we continue to help structure state generate income to how do we deliver a education virtually for people New People want to become instructors or existing instructors who need further education especially, if they're transitioning virtual and three, how do we keep our promise to make the world happy and healthy? The first thing we did was we allowed instructors to start teaching online. They started teaching zoom but Paulo to to that, we started developing our own platform and it's called Zen Studios Instense for Zoom Instructor, network. So in Studio and in studio allows instructors to lyceum their classes in allows them to upload prerecorded glasses with a licensed. It allows them to charge for their classes. It allows him to list their classes on for months, Zoom Dot Com. We really focused on his since studio concept to help our instructors generate income during the the lock them, and at the same time we said we are structures are not necessarily trained in using all this technology. So we better provide all the education that they need. So we created all these courses that were done through zoom and some are learning courses that instructors could take. To become what we call virtual fitness pros and tour surprise within a month and a half, we had about a million people a week taking Zuma classes virtually, which is amazing for a new virtual product. It was really on structure selling their students. Hey, non teaching online income, take my class virtually every week we launched improvements to the platform. So we added chat to the platform. So students can chat while you're taking the class we added emojis we added that thinks to the paywall so that Instructors could take payment, which every were launching new tech at a pace that our technology team had never done before, and I'm so proud of them because they really took it to the next level. Yeah. I mean you basically stood up a virtual platform within weeks. I mean I'm imagining that if you had a plan like, let's say a year ago you said, Hey, we want to do a virtual platform it would have taken you like a year to put together right and you do this In like six weeks. Yeah. Unbelievable. Working nights weekends. It felt like we were starting Zuma again it felt like you know how jeff vessels says they won. It really felt like they won we felt unstoppable. We're going at it. We were talking to instructors to get feedback on how to make the platform perfect for them, and at the same time we said we to also help our instructors and the world at large during the pandemic in other ways. So we created a community fund where we Gave a funds out to instructors directly affected by covert themselves who were hospitalized, who had family members that pass away or instructors that were because our instructors sometimes are. Their site job. So we had a lot of instructors who are nurses a lot huge population of nurses who are also instructors. So we help them their frontline workers, we help them with their services. So we created this community fund and we also did something that we call the one class, one meal program for every person who took a virtual class which. We make revenue on all the revenue goes to the instructors for every person takes a virtual class with donated meal a during the month of June, and we donated one point, one million meals to food banks around the world while. So Alberta's when when somebody signs up for a virtual class on the Zimba- platform, all that revenue pays for it goes to. The instructor yeah everything instructing well. So so I mean, how are you guys? I mean you're still a business you still have employees how're you kind of managing the business and I mean have you had to have lay-offs or furloughs for example? Yeah. So we didn't do any layoffs wouldn't do any for those. Surprisingly are clothing business is doing very well people. Buying fitness clothing to work out at home and we were able to manage. It obviously is not going to be of very profitable year because we made a lot of investments to make all these things happen but that's not our objective. This year objected this is about the people it's about the instructors is about their students is about our employees it's always been. And this year, it's even more about a just helping out others and a
20 Minutes About A Smart Rowing Machine
"The day we have an interesting guests. Bruce Smith from hydro reuss. Why don't you just introduce yourself little eight? Great to be with you on the show and name is Bruce Smith I'm a Canadian living in America, and and the CEO and founder of a company called Hydro. What's grow? Yeah, hydro is a indoor rowing machine, and it uses some pretty revolutionary resistance mechanism technology to make it quiet, but the coolest thing. Thing about the machine. The part that we love the most about it is that we broadcast not fitness classes, but we actually take the experience of being out on the water rowing, and we have instructors out there. Who talked to you directly live on a beautiful twenty two inch, high definition screen with great speakers, so you actually experienced being out on the water and being part of a rowing crew you know from. From your living room or your bedroom or wherever you machine, so it's like having a penitent Kloss, except it's on a rowing machine that is extremely quiets why it whereas like putting us more broad, you know like almost feeding like you're dancing. Really off focusing on you know creating an immersive experience of being out there rowing exactly so we have trademark this idea of votaw reality and I love Peleton we have A. A time in the office they're they're totally great. It's really fun and it is. You said it's exactly right. It's like being at the club with your friends. You know you're not drinking or smoking, but you're you know you're listening to music or super photogenic people. You know it's fun experience and we love that that's great for us the coolest thing that we could think of doing to take this concept of live. Elo are and create an immersive experience so rather than going to the club every day for your workout, which is great, we can have great music and really really charismatic instructors, but you're actually out on the river, or on the bay, Miami beach or rowing by London, bridge, so, who do you think is it for? Is it like somebody that Audio Patent Than They WanNa? WanNa to mix up the workout as really somebody that is looking for different experience because they don't like going to a club, but they wanna have liberal quietness of actually being outdoors and row. It's for people who are looking for the very best experienced the best workout experience and the best way to connect with their friends, so Peleton has a leaderboard which is great. Great, but you're really competing. You're competing by yourself and you know not that many people have actually wrote out of the water in a boat with other people, but the experience of it is unbelievable. You're right on the water, but most importantly you're moving in complete rhythm with seven other people, Ya, howdy, howdy create that because if I'm Roy like, let's say like on. On, a big rowing team or like even dragon boating like a need to be in sync with everyone right because as soon somebody's out of things not working. That's exactly right. In human beings hardware. They love to do things in synchronicity with other people. It makes you feel better. It's like it's a genuine way of connecting and when you're biking, you know you're. You're like ninety five or one hundred beats per minute, and and really not moving in the same rhythm as as the instructor like you're having a shared experience, but it's not exactly the same rhythm when you're on the rowing machine, you're encouraged. It's actually really easy. You move every part of your body in exactly the same rhythm as the instructor, and so there's some brain. Brain science behind this you know the brain is an aerobic organ like a muscle, you not energy systems like like the rest of your body, and so every time you make a decision in your brain. You're using some energy, and so when you're exercising, you have to keep deciding to exercise and they're really really cool thing about rowing especially when you're rowing crew like. Like, not just on a machine by yourself in a room, but when you're rowing as part of a team, you turn off that decision making process in your brain, because the person that you're following the person in front of you is is making those decisions. You don't have to make them, so you achieve the state of flow much much faster and we know from. From our experience and I know from my experience as a national team coach that has it actually has a profound impact on people. It is the best exercise you can do. It's also US eighty six percent of your body's muscles when you're biking like forty forty five percent of your muscles with you have to use your arms and legs. It's like a full body. And your core and it improves your bone density also, so it really is like. If there was one pill that you could take, that would like. Make you friends and make you healthier. You take that pill. Of course. We feel like we've got that pill. We all would like that, but say so just saw. Listeners can really imagine how the product experience looks like so I'm imagining now you're sitting on a rowing machine and you have like a huge monitor of some sort right, and and you see an instructor like. How do you create that experience off? Somebody actually sitting in front of me. Somebody's sitting behind me and I'm not competing against. Against them, but we actually working together like how you create that certainly question, so this isn't like we didn't just go. Go to the river with some of our friends and get some go prost. We don't talk about our our workouts as we talk about them as episodes and we hired this really really amazing film team, and so we take all the experience that Hollywood and television. Television have created in the United States and we apply that skill in that art to capturing the whole experience of being out on the water, so we have four cameras. We have a team that is mixing and editing that you know. The most important part of this are two things number one is the rhythm, and so you never lose that rhythm and the instructor. Who's WHO's out. Out there with you is encouraging you to be in rhythm with everybody, and it's very very easy to follow like you do it instantly, even people who've never done it before within like two or three strokes there in the right rhythm, and then the other part is that emotional connection and two things contribute a lot to that one is music, so we have an amazing library of. Of Music and the other is making sure that when you're filming, you captured not just the rhythm, and the experience of being outside, and and the you know the environment of being out on the water, but also the eyes of the instructor is are the window to the soul, and it's it sounds trite, but it's. It's unbelievably true like you have to see. People's facing to be able. Able to read what's in there is and it, it's that experience being able to move your whole body in the same rhythm, AC- instructor and also connect with them. Because you feel what they're feeling, you know they're out on the water and they're excited about what they're doing. They're you know they're training for the US national team and they're sharing their passion for sport that they love. Love more than anything else, and it's really it is genuinely inspiring, and we thought just a crazy response from consumers, which is really encouraging, and
"peleton" Discussed on How I Built This
"When the pandemic shutdown fitness studios all around the world, people still needed a way to work out, and Peleton saw a huge surge in demand I spoke with John from his home in New York just a couple of days ago. Where he's focused on meeting that demand and keeping the Peleton community motivated all right. Let's talk business <hes>. When did you first start to see something odd in in like orders Peleton? Did you start to see like? Like a weird surge, even before the pandemic really hit, I don't think it was before guy, I think it was that you know the the twelfth or thirteenth of March <hes> when the world's realized that what we were hearing about obviously China and Italy and and some other places in South Korea did it was going to come to New York and all of a sudden that following week it started shooting up the demand I demand that you had not seen. Seen in the previous eight years of Peleton's history, well <hes> interestingly I think we talked about this last time. Guys that we have a <hes> uniquely seasonal business where I think we've said sixty percent of our demand is between Thanksgiving and the end of February because of a holiday sales in the cold winter months in the summer. You're you know you're running and working outside a little bit more in the winter you WanNa. Peleton platform felt on bike or tread. And so we've dealt with these spikes in demand. After thanksgiving and Black Friday and aggressive spikes, where it's multiples beyond what it was a couple of weeks prior, yeah, and so we had seen, we just hadn't seen it in this type of surge in demand. We haven't seen it in the third week of March, I mean that was obviously very unique, and generally sales are declining. Coming out of the holiday season and <hes> took a took a turn. The other action, so you aren't prepared for this I. Mean You wouldn't have been prepared for it was it wasn't predictable. Yeah, no, not at all <hes> what served us well I would say to guy. We are an ambitious bunch of Peleton, and we see Helen Bikes and treadmills and future products and our content as the future of fitness globally we are planning to grow geometrically for years and years to come, and in order to do that. You have to be investing heavily in supply, chain and logistics and stores and people and infrastructure and number experience. Experience and you have to be really investing for Growth and we had been doing that, so we were more prepared a company that wasn't ready for growth and the second thing what we benefit from guy which was really fun to watch was how entrepreneurial the folks Pelivan are not not myself, but the you know hundreds of people around me. They were excited about the challenge of dealing with it, and and it's you know it's a beautifully dynamic group of people at Peleton and the challenges that we faced which were many over the last several months. Including working from home, but also an exploding business I'm it was really fun to watch everybody triage and rising occasion, and it's been. It's been weirdly fun to be honest all right. Just give me a sense. What what is the percentage? Increase in sales. What's been the percent increase in sales over the last couple months? It's tricky. Guy Is I. Think when you and I met we private company. Yes, and now you're. Yes I be a little more forthcoming last time we spoke. To right right I, got you, but there's been. A search, right, there's been a surge. There's been a wind in our sale as I as I said anecdotally I'm hearing that there's a waiting list for people to get their. Peleton's just because of the surge. How how long on average now is it? Take to get one year I think it's spiked <hes> ten or eleven weeks <hes> in some markets and I think we're down to six or seven weeks. Most markets at this point and <hes> as we continue to build capacity in manufacturing pipeline at supply chain. <hes> were able to. Meet the demand a little bit more faster, so <hes> it's it's coming down and. It's something we care deeply about because we want to get off on the right foot, not just because it's good for business, but it's good for our communities as well in the mental health of our future members. Let's just talk. Brass tacks for for a moment <hes>. You've got supply chain right? 'cause these these are made overseas, and they've got to be shipped across the Pacific. Ocean and <hes> come to la or Seattle wherever and then distribute around the country, but you also have your also logistics company, you also have stores where you display and allow people to try the bikes or the treadmill, so let's talk logistics. I mean you've got Peleton <hes> vans that go to people's homes and set them up. How has that? How's that work? Work Yeah that was <hes> that was probably the biggest thing that we had needed triage to make sure that our employees and our members were safe, and in this new covert world, and we found a again. The creativity of my colleagues <hes>. We found a lot of creative solutions on how to deliver bikes <hes> we do what's called a threshold delivery where we don't even come into your home. We will not put it on your porch or you and your <hes> the precipice of your of your garage. Help you, set it up and tell you what you would need to do, and we've created new tools online to help you do what are delivery? Folks would have done <hes> had they delivered it and spent the half hour setting it up, and now it's more of a self service model because you don't want our team touching you know your bike right and by the way our team doesn't want to be in your home and it's a shared anxiety <hes> you know we want to keep our save. And and our and we WANNA keep our employees safe, and it's working <hes> we've. We've found some some good solutions you've got. Thousands and thousands of classes that are recorded are available, but you've got live classes. I mean that's the whole attraction to Peleton is that you've got a live instructor and you've got a studio in your media company <hes>. How are you doing that safely? How are you? How do you have instructors? Come to the studio in New York and get filmed for the live classes. Yeah, it's a good question <hes> with our with our instructors. We sent you know a couple hundred thousand dollars. Dollars of hardware and software into a few of our member of Uber instructors, homes and set up a an ad hoc television streaming studio. It was fascinating to watch how quickly they were able to get world class content streaming from a an living room of one of our instructors, <hes> and so yes, we did care about the authenticity in the freshness of our continent's something that we told our members that they were going to get when they purchase their biker treadmill, so we've been. Trying to honor that and I think it's really worked. I think <hes> versus taking a class from two years ago, which are still available in still awesome. There's something about the conversation. You're able to have in the relevance. You're able to have the connection. You're able to bring to our members in their home when you're talking about what's going on in the world in that moment, <hes> and so it's really. It's really

Most people people that CAN AFFORD INEXPENSIVE. Peleton well according to the Stock Market. Right which is failing right now. Peleton is the one product that is succeeding young these troubling times. Well so so. Yeah because no one can go to the gym. And it's like a subscription things right so people. A bunch of people bought peleton bikes. I am now riding with those people along. You go for forty five. I did a thirty minute class just now but this dude kicked my s. You know the last time I did it I had tried to pick a you know we talked about this. I took dance around your words. You tried to pick a hot chick. Yeah I I do have to dance around my words I am. I am sure your wife knows that to chick. She does know she well. She picked it. I kind of tricked her into picking and right and she was like she was like what do you want? I don't know I prefer. I like her right and so I complained after the workout. About how the person talk too much and stuff you do. When you want to deflect right right a my wife is like well pick someone for you this time. So she picked. This dude was like dude and was very commanding demanding. That better for you. Was it a better workout. It was a better workout for me but then I started thinking to myself. Maybe I'm playing this role wrong in my relationship with my wife. She picked the do now. Get on the Pike. Fast.
Bad Day for Cash
"It's Thursday may seventh walking to market fully. I'm Chris L. Joining me. The one and only bill barker good to see you good to be here. Earning season just continues to roll along. We're going to talk about the delivery economy. The working from home economy. We're going to start with the war on cash and at the moment cash needs to call a timeout because cash giving its butt kicked square and pay pal both out with first-quarter reports boats stocks up more than ten percent. And it seems like this was less about the results that square and payback delivered in the four first quarter and more about the way everyone is thinking about. Non-cash payment business. Yeah I think that's fair They're interesting reports and this is not maybe certainly not only them but Lift for instance I think or pay Pals report sort of breaks down results into the january-february period And then the march period and then the April period and then go forward period so when they talk about rapidly evolving business situations Many other companies are in the same boat where there's a pretty happy story to tell according to the numbers for January February and then a big change in March and then maybe a stabilization for these companies in April. And then just. We don't know what's going to happen going forward right and true of all businesses. They pretty much. If if there's one thing one unifying thread through every one of these conference calls regardless of the business it's people saying but we don't really know which is totally understandable but in the case of pay pal the I totally understand why they are eager to talk about the current quarter. It's like yes here's our. Here's our first quarter report but once we're done with this let's talk about what's happening in Q. Two because what we're seeing is pretty exciting stuff. Yeah they're seeing. I think quarter million new subscribers a day. Something like that is the pace. They're on right now. I think may I was the largest increase or the largest number of new users. They've ever had This is an acceleration of the future. Really you've covered it You've thrown the war on cash name around it People been following it and this Accelerates what has been going on To cash and where it's going and pay pal has been one of the principal beneficiaries of this A little bit more so than square for the last quarter. But they're both enjoying the very nice days. Stocks Square is is is more reliant on small businesses in a in a way that pay pal. Isn't I mean just for anyone who's been to a small independent shop or a farmer's market or something like that where you know you walk into a tent you think about buying whatever they're selling and they've got the little square thing that you swipe right there so I mean that's that's probably putting a little bit of dent in their q one numbers but it's hard to imagine square not succeeding over the next five to ten years? Yeah it's the you know little white square boxes where Swipe your credit card that you come to know and perhaps love perhaps not love? I mean I have discovered when I am operating with any sort of square interaction that there's a new opportunity to tip somebody at the counter for something that in almost all other circumstances. I don't find myself tipping for this option to just would you like to just go ahead and add? I don't know ten fifteen eighteen twenty percent onto that Which doesn't occur everywhere else. But it's just enough of to guilt me into doing that often. So your and you didn't give specific examples but it sounds like you're talking about. Hey if I'm a coffee shop. Yeah if I had some change or whatever. I'd throw that in the tip jar if I go to an independent bookshop. I'm not necessarily looking to tip the person I'm buying the book from no and yet here a square asking me whether I might consider that So the little square devices aren't getting much business in an era where people are not going into the little small shops but the CASH APP. is Is is doing good business for them and you know competitor then. Mo and You know all the money That you probably owe me for instance you can Use either of those two. Oh you don't owe me any money at the moment you now. I'd be like what are you talking about you? You were in that poker game the other week. That was not a poker game bill. Man Be Twenty Bucks No I. I did hear that you were the person walking away with the money. Yeah Yeah and and now you don't even have to see bill man you can just like send a message on slack and just be like hey man then give me my twenty bucks. Let's move onto the delivery economy and help me understand this because we got. We'RE GOING TO GET THE FIRST QUARTER RESULTS FROM UBER. After the closing bell today but we already got first-quarter results from lift and grab hub and on the surface. It would appear as though grub hub had the better first-quarter results and yet because they broke even and everyone was expecting hub to report a loss and Rub. Shares are down ten twelve percent. Meanwhile lift stock is up more than twenty percent this morning. It's still down for the year but maybe it was The benefit of low expectations but first quarter revenue for lift was up twenty three percent compared to a year ago. Yeah well there's a difference between a stock that is up twenty three percent to get back to about half of the price. It was a couple of months ago And the stocks like Paypal and square. That are at you know approaching all-time highs off of the you know perhaps You know some of the earnings expectations. you know changed around their stories. I think for you know lift. Things are improved over yesterday. Mostly in the sense that the company has reported. It's it's going to save about three hundred million dollars a year on run rate basis On its operations by scaling back on some of it's expensive. So that's that's the better part of the story there. Really the The numbers declined. Of course precipitously in in March And and continue to be In April Over where they were in January and February. But you know the company was sowing pretty pretty strong growth going into the beginning of this For the whole quarter twenty three percent. increased revenue for the quarter. That's completely on the back of the strong. I two months it do. You have any teams like every quarter when home depot comes out with their results. Lows comes out the next day and it's almost always similar but not quite as good. I don't know if we have enough data because they uber and lift haven't been public companies nearly as long as Home Depot and Lowe's but any should we look at Uber reporting after the bell today and think. Oh yeah it'll probably be about what lift is doing. Yeah and in part because Hoover's already announced The massive Layoffs that were announced yesterday and that was I can't remember exactly how many people it was But it was massive In terms of the business so I think that they'll be able to quantify what the savings from that are going to be They obviously found ridership way. Way Off Right now and they've got to find saving somewhere and that usually comes at the cost of employees. So that is. I think the reason that it's up today aside from just the you know the mimicking lift is the. There's I don't know that this would affect the stock price but the announcement that it is a taking an investment in Lime and getting rid of its scooter business and I guess. combining that with limes I I don't know about where you live but where I live. Yeah we need some consolidation in the scooter business way too many of them and it's just again now. These aren't all going to survive. So yeah the sooner you all can get together and decide which brand is going to survive the better. We're all going to be. Yeah I have not found myself using any of the scooters that have plentiful an available wherever you go around Alexandria but Also getting back to Grub a down thirteen percent today. I think that the results today you would have to have believed that if there were a time when Grubb was going to have a great quarter it would be the one just announced So the fact that they weren't really able to translate to additional orders into additional profitability and have said that they are nearly all of their profits. the in the coming quarter are going to be used to generate additional orders for the restaurant partners. Okay you know being a good partner with the restaurants which they have been accused of not being a great partner to restaurants in the past maybe long term but you know they're they're a company that you would think well they. They be raking it in right now. And that's that's really not the case. Yeah this is absolutely one of those times where it's I think. Completely Fair for investors to look at a business and say it's put up or shut up time if Grub can't get it done at a time when there's a national pandemic and people trapped inside their homes. I'm sorry Yup it may be time to move on and where you know. The the UBER EATS is a legitimate competitor. as his door dash but I think that that will be one of the interesting things to get a from. This evening's call by Uber They're gonNA see the ridership way way way down but ubereats will make up Some of those losses For the company and say the other thing that they'll be pointing to is is the money that they have been able to save going forward With the UNFORTUNATE LAYOFFS. That are necessary. Let's ramp up with Peleton Shares of Peleton fifteen percent hitting an all time high although it's only been a public company since last September so but still a good day for Peleton third quarter report big again not surprising big jump in sales big jump in membership huge huge jumping in sales up sixty six percent something like that And the subscription revenue is up more more than that and this is without one of their principle items Really available for sale in most cases that is they're they're better known for the bikes but they also sell What I would deem to be outrageously expensive treadmills you might be able to comment on that because you're the ultra marathoner here and They sell treadmills which they can't Install right now because they can't go into people's houses and it takes a couple multiple repairman to construct these things. But they're forty three hundred dollars and What what do you think about that so? I don't have a treadmill in my home. I have never been interested in having a treadmill in my home so I I can't say I have a good sense of what a reasonable price for a treadmill. Is You know why that is. I prefer running outdoors. 'cause it's yeah you're from Maine. So the the worst weather that northern Virginia has to offer. You is like kind of a joke to you. Know to your makeup right. I mean I'm not a big fan of running in driving rain but yeah I'll run twelve months out of the year. Sure yeah and weaker people than yourself. Less hardy people from America really Are are willing to spend apparently forty three hundred dollars on a treadmill or will according to Peleton when they're able to bring these people these devices into people's homes and construct them in the meantime the twenty to twenty five hundred dollar bikes Are going like hotcakes. there's a panic buying. Apparently you know according to I think the New York Times of of these New New York Times readership probably intersex fairly well with Palestinians subscribers so They've had the largest class in their history. Twenty three thousand people In one class And just all the numbers up and down. Look Great and At the moment not that they want to rub it in but the nobody's really rubbing it in when they're having a very good quarter right now. They're couching their enthusiasm for results in in more muted terms than that. But they're having the last laugh over everybody who is trying to dance upon their graves for their Christmas ads. They certainly are. And it's not hard for me to imagine that businesses start to get involved with Peleton and by that I mean if we are going to. We're going to see a shift in businesses where businesses conducted. I don't know about you. I'm already hearing from friends of mine. Who Work in Manhattan and there in situations where a fifty thousand square feet of office space in downtown Manhattan and. Now they're saying well. We don't think we're going to need this anymore. And instead we're just GONNA find a couple of smaller footprint places out in the suburbs instead of fifty thousand square feet. We're going to need about ten thousand square feet. We're going to shift how we spend money as a business. We're going to be spending less on office space but we want to make sure our employees are happy and so instead of subsidizing their commute. We're going to subsidize their Home Office. And it wouldn't shock me at all in the next six months start hearing about businesses that are using. Peleton as a way to recruit people could be could be. You should Do Pr for them. I think they're doing fine. Npr FOR THEM BILL Mark. Thanks for being
How Peloton Went From Failing to Billion Dollar Business Using 1 Marketing Tactic
"We are going to talk about how Peleton went from failing to becoming a billion dollar business using one marketing tactic so some context real quick on what. Peleton is actually have a bike behind me. Neil has Peleton as well peleton is. It's exercise equipment that you can use from home live a bike and there's a screen in front of it and I can go online. I can you know take classes whenever I want. I can take him live. Sometimes I have instructors. Neil has the treadmill and then they have other devices. Coming out is all. They have Pelham Yoga Meditation Weightlifting Too. So it's just a very convenient way to exercise and they are now a publicly traded company and that is basically what happened the so. What is that one marketing tactic? Neil so let me tell you a little bit story I era. You know the founder of Polygon used to Pitch Investors Multiple Times a day. I think he said something like over a thousand times of a struggling at the beginning to five believed in the vision upheld on And now it's a big company. And when they first started they really struggled. Can you guess what the price of their bike was? When they first started a couple thousand bucks eight hundred dollars what I right. Okay Cubo and guess how while they were doing when sales not well. Why because eight hundred dollars is kind of in no-man's-land so the bike was too cheap. Where people wasn't high quality so no one was buying it. So the moment they jacked up. The prices started selling like hotcakes. But the moment is too cheap known wanted to buy a panic questioned the quality of it's like if you buy a Mercedes too cheap. It's like what's going on. Do exactly like you and I were a lot of tensions right. You were all birds. I wear Nikes if you found a new brand of tennis shoes. They look great but there were twenty bucks or ten dollars. Would you buy you know why because you question? It's too cheap again where you questioned the quality of it because you expect if it's like an all birds you expect a certain price in certain quality around it and all of a sudden it drops to like a quarter of the price. I'm like okay. Something's fishy here exactly. And that's all Peleton did and you know it's funny. Pricing is just such a simple thing that you can end up tweaking to generate quite a bit more money. Eric and I had at our last event in San Francisco. We had Patrick Campbell from Talk about how to optimize pricing and he has a track record of tweaking. Pricing Your Business whether it's service offer ECOMMERCE and generating you extra fifteen percent annual revenue which is huge. And you guys should check out priced intelligently or prophet well as well. I think they're new company. Name is profit while but the overall point I'm making pricing charging more or less in many cases can have a huge impact on your business. If it's too cheap people are gonNA think it's too wrong. I have a friend that makes man made diamonds and he's raised well over one hundred million dollars from it and the chemical compound like when someone looks and analyze. Diamond looks no different than the diamond. That you would dig up from Earth is just. They figured out how to create machines at replicates happening you know deep down in Earth and at first they weren't generating enough sales because Tucci. The moment they started charging more money for it they started generating more sales. So it happened that a lot of industries in space if you discharge too cheap. You're not going to generate. It can actually hurt you. Decrease your conversion rate. Believe it or not yeah I think those of you that are interested in those of you running software businesses Tamasha. Tom Goose if you just Google Tom. Tonga's that's T. U. N. G. U. N. Z. Tonga's maybe no after that. But you'll find it anyway. He has a couple of pricing case. Studies out there He does he does a lot of graphs modeling and that kind of stuff. On on his blog I do think pricing is one of the biggest levers that you can pull a couple of other things I want to call out to is the bike. I think it's anywhere from twenty four to twenty eight hundred dollars. How much was the the treadmill if you bought it straight up? I think I paid like three or four grand for a treadmill got most people. This is the it's a very high end product right. So most people aren't going to be able to afford. I think one big thing that helped them to was that they ended up using a service called firm which allows you to finance the product to where you end up paying like thirty bucks or sixty bucks a month. Something like that. Maybe a little more and you don't pay any interest on it so that allows them to opening up to the market so kind of what Neil talking about too is when you look at Tesla they started out with the roadster or not the row maybe it's old roadster initially very high end and Tesla the Model S. was very high end and then once he started getting more of the market. There you know. More people started becoming aware of it then. He started creating lower and products. Which is what Peleton is doing right. Now see start high in first high pricing and you start to go You start to go down market. Which is what. Tesla's we know what their model threes and then they're coming out with all these other different cars and all these other different products too. So that's one thing you want to look at long-term
Front End-Engineers Discuss Working From Home
"Let's dive right in. How are you feeling about the current situation in working from home I could start people? Don't get Sydney talking. I'm a little down. Like this. Has Been a legitimately harder than I thought. It was like okay. No-one no-one needs to call anyone or maybe I don't know you tell me you'll find at the end of this podcast. But it's it's been difficult not having like a face to face contact and not going out very much. And it's really like a disrupted my routine like going to the gym and going to the copy shop and going to the Bar Which Fanta Myself? A bit of introvert. I mean what? This Day ten of Microsoft's mandated work from home and Yeah if I mean they can see my Pelivan hear in the background. If I didn't have that I would be literally like running around my house. Just screaming closer not. I'm not really sure it's been tough. Hey at least you're getting some exercise to one way or another. Yeah I'll say the same thing In our remote work episode I talked about how the type that needs to have people around and if I had to work from home I would like to coffee shop and now that's not even an option so so it started off pretty bad. I think I wasn't very productive but I think as time has gone on. I've gone way more productive. I've gotten used to it so I actually really like it like I don't like covered nineteen of course but I've gotten used to the remote work situation. So do you think that will change after thirty days? That's a good question. We'll see guess we'll check back. Have Two kids with me. My wife and my mother lives with me so I've got plenty of people to talk to but an interesting thing for me. Is You know whenever I leave my house. I'm always super worried that I'm gonNA bring something back to my mom because she's definitely in the high risk group so I feel like I should be super shut in but if I when I leave to go for a run like come back and I'm I'm worried I'm nervous that I touched something or did something that could endanger my mom's health which is kind of an interesting way to carry just bit bathe in bleach. What I do don't track don't drink. I don't drink it but you can bathe in that's total. I'm just kidding. No one bay the bleach. I'm about to get serve lawsuit as a terrible idea. I'm signing off the gas. I don't know I don't know why we have to tell people not to drink each one of these things that should be self evident but don't drink police. It will cure everything including your life. One way to kill the virus. Yeah I would say that I mean I've been set up to work from home just from over the years working from home occasionally so like I don I'm fortunate that way like I have dusk and like monitors and all the things that make it feel comfortable but I think to like kind of what Ryan was just saying the anxiety of all this is actually a lot in. It is hard to concentrate. I'm normally. I'm quite good at that at home. Actually 'cause I feel like I have less distractions and I don't have coworkers coming by every five seconds or are I don't know visual distractions that kind of thing but Just the weight of everything you know like the stock market's crashing. You know you're losing retirement money in very privileged and fortunate enough to even have savings like that but anxiety of that plus the anxiety of the virus and like thinking about my family and my parents. And you know they're definitely an account at age category that's they're at high risk I also have friends that are immuno-compromised or friends that aren't in tech. That could possibly lose their jobs. can't work from home so like at all these things up. It's just like a swirl in your brain and it is definitely hard to concentrate on work in that kind of mindset so definitely a struggle trying to refocus me like right right some code right some code yet. Think like echoing that it's it's a lot of the anxiety deion like beaches being anxious of all the things that you both just said then also just the unknown like. How long is this last seen? Does this continue our things? Get better as the new norm. How long has that four? I think that also starts to make me feel very anxious. It's definitely made working a lot harder. Because you are thinking about those things but then I also have to remember too. Is that yeah? Maybe we just aren't working at full capacity and may be okay with that which is actually very hard to say. 'cause you'd you'd like. Oh you WanNa perform and you WANNA BE DOING. Great Dot can be. Just add to the anxiety. I've also found like Ryan mentioned having kids at home. I've actually found it very difficult to have be working from home dealing with a toddler running around and not having someone to look after him so both my wife and I are working trying to juggle. Who's looking after him? Who's on a meeting you know? When's the best time to work? We sell them figured it out. So we'll see how that goes. I was going to ask like how. How do you feel productive for me? Personally it's been really hard to feel because again I think a lot of my productivity was based around routine right like getting on the bus getting there like listening to my podcast reading my emails and then getting there and having like my meetings and going from room to room like it was very like mechanical nature of how I felt productive and now I roll out of bed like an hour later up my bosses and listen to this podcast. I mean you. Don't have the commute. O'brien commute walking over. That's true my commute. Is You know pants. Optional DOWN THE STAIRS. Maybe hop on the Peleton. Maybe not and then. Just start working from there. Yes that's been a real struggle for me is like getting that feeling of productivity back so I have no idea if I'm less productive for more Honestly maybe eighty ninety percent the same productivity rate but I feel like I'm twenty percent productive just like the feeling inside of me which causes a lot of probably undo anxiety. I think for me Mike. My coating has been through the roof. I've been more Paul requests. I think in the last two weeks and I have in the last two months combined but the other work that I do that involves talking to people and collaborating and coordinating things is just. I've I've no fucking clue what I'm doing there. It comes a lot harder to have those conversations like I mean. Look at us. Were on a remote call. We usually sit around a table at it. Has Its challenges. It's not as easy. I think it's been interesting to though just like it has been. I will echo what everyone saying. It's been difficult. It's been anxiety inducing trying to find a schedule that works when you literally are rolling from one room to another. Brian said pants optional. Like it's hard but on the plus side I don't know about you all but like it's been really interesting to see like the team. Kinda come together. At least my work team come together over slack and just being more kind of empathetic emotionally connected to the colleagues and creating sort of informal ways of connecting. Virtually that we haven't ever done before and the situation is not great but as a silver lining. There has been quite active bonding which has been really interesting. And I'd be curious to see how that plays out in person because we all are all kind of going through like a shared experience and even more so when it's when it's your team actually even just today and my team and I had a virtual lunch. It sounds weird like just thinking about it from an idea standpoint but in practice of just being able to connect even if it is virtually and just talk about I mean. We talked about corona virus a bit but just even like what? Are you watching on Netflix? Like what's like what other things are you doing other than work to pass the time? Just like your quarantined yes Ryan. How do we cheers? So Stacy? I know you'd mentioned the like workstation that you have already had a pretty good setup you have the dual monitors you have a desk and everything set up. But I'm curious like how has everyone's workstation been working at home I'll just speak for my my immediate team like I'm good but like a lot of people had don't really like working from home or haven't and don't even have any setup at all. Some people rent a room in a an apartment in San Francisco and don't even have a full apartment to themselves so the room is where they can kinda do stuff. But that means working on your bed and that's not very good for all sorts of reasons posture. Then there's also no gap in your work in home. I've seen some of the people on my team working in hallways like stocking books as a desk. And also that's another thing is even if you do want equipment. It's really hard to get either yet. Have to go to a store. Which now are in San Francisco Bay area? There's stores aren't really that open for something that's not essential and then ordering stuff is a lot slower too so that can be really
Raising money in a bear market, and what's happening with Peloton?
"Seen here the stock markets have gone from bad to worse. We're in correction territory. It's a bear market. Danny this is the end of the eleven year bull run. I think yeah you know since the two thousand eight global financial crisis which which saw the market crashed thirty forty fifty percent depending on metro looking at. We've had this massive Ron. One of the longest runs the postwar era eleven years of growth on the Nasdaq the Dow and across the economy and all that came to screeching halt in like a week with the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Averaging down I think right at the second about twenty eight percent from its peak just a couple of weeks ago we were just doing. Alex and I were writing a story about the last ninety days of Corona virus and Nikon News and with shock me was the Dow hit a peak on February twelfth Nasdaq's peak was February nineteenth. This is twenty two days ago. So we've now seen completely the Go the other direction so both hit correction territory by a week and a half ago that means it was down ten percent and then we hit the bear market which is twenty percent. Now we're entering. I don't even know what we see. I don't think we have an animal for for this but now we're down thirty percent. I guess we're a Unicorn death doing market Dung Beetle market their now trademark right there so so I mean what reversal in so quickly. And I I just was told by Chris our producer that Dung beetles do not carry Kovic nineteen so if you do have Dung Beetles on. You can feel free to keep them around So we're going to keep watching this story. We've actually covering the public markets more than we kind of like to we already. Private market focused publication. But we haven't been able to look away. Tasha even looking at a couple of different stocks inside the markets have been doing things I think zoom and Peleton have been on your radar. I'm kind of curious why. Peleton was kind of a joke yesterday and the New York. Times came out with the story today about people taking it more seriously at home fitness in general scientific spike. And I know personally I plan on starting to run. Quit my gym membership. So it's definitely happening overall. Though I think for a lot of people it was a moment where they're like. Hey even if even if we don't have a million cases or hundreds of cases of corona virus. We're listening now so I think it was only a pause for anyone and everyone was certainly a pause for me. I mean I I usually get about twenty thirty steps in every morning on my commute from my bedroom to my tech crunch work desk approximately fifteen feet away but I think that the shocking part is you know. Exercise Bikes have been around a long time. Peleton had this controversy run campaign over Christmas. Alex remind me. Ipo last year our call early twenty nine lead twenty in September of last year. That's how fast the news accelerated. Everything seems so far in the in the rear view mirror. And you're like that was two weeks ago. We were at the top but Peleton. It started really. Well it's declined and now the argument is like who's going to go to equinox when economics potentially could give you corona virus so huge increase remote classes are a new thing and that sort of zoom. But I want to talk about the scale of Peleton's reason declines because we've seen the markets where price a lot of companies lately Peleton's a great example of a company that had a return to form that has been obviated by the recent market movement. So if you go back to. December peleton spiked at like thirty dollars a share. It was up quite often peo- price as accessible run today. It's nineteen dollars and seventy cents a share and it's off nearly ten and a half percent as we record right now so you start. That people thought would do well is really doing the opposite of showing you that. No one's really safe in today's public markets. Everyone's GonNa hit travels getting hit volatility is up denny sashes. Even down in Cryptos are down. It's really kind of holistic bit of value destruction across every asset class that I track at
How To Self-Publish A Bestseller with Anna Vocino
"Say what's up to fire nation ensure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know was up fire nation. I you know I'm a proud member of fire nation so I feel like I'm speaking to myself as well as the rest of fire nation. So something interesting. The people will probably don't know about me is that my husband is also a comic and we started a dual stand up. Act about marriage. We started writing at two years ago. We started putting it up recently and it is insane that we that to people who've been married twenty years would put it all out there and I realized why you don't see that a lot and that's because usually comics aren't dumb enough to marry other comics and they're certainly not stupid enough to put their marriage out there on stage and make fun of each other in order to make other people feel better about their relationship. Did you make up new lyrics to I got you babe and seeing that from stage? No but I'm writing that down cutting. That'd be brilliant. We don't have any songs yet. So I think we need to explore that I love that in fire nation and as a dear friend like I said in the intro. Her new cookbook is gracing our kitchen table so every morning i get to see your smiling face when I walked downstairs to go hit my new Peleton. Yeah Meiling in ladling sleet and smiling of wasn't what I love about us. Not only do you listen entrepreneurs on fire. Have you done some really cool things in your life with comedy etc but you are totally an entrepreneur? An you've self published a bestseller. Which of course is the title of this Audio Mash Glass today? So let's talk about you self publishing a second cookbook. Like talk to us about the journey went through some of the lessons. You learn why you did it. Share with us well. I was lucky enough. The last time to be on your show to to promote eat happy. Which is the first cookbook. And then I thought I'd be super clever and call this what happy to T. O. Because who doesn't love a grammar joke I I when I published that first one. I was like I am done like I'm not going to do this again. This is insane. I felt exhausted. I felt burnt out and then I realized I needed to. I needed to keep writing recipes to update the blog because you just have to keep producing content and the thing that I've found over the years and also from doing almost twelve hundred episodes with vinny on the fitness confidential. Podcast is like we have to keep producing content. It doesn't stop you know and and so i. It's kind of like one of those things when you get in there and I start wanting to write a recipe. Well then I write another one and then I read another one then. What if I did this? What if I did that and then I realized I had like forty or fifty new recipes and so I was like all right. We need to write a one hundred more and do a second book and I thought it would be out a year sooner because I did have that one hundred percent soft moric attitude of. Oh I got this. I've already done this. I know how to do this and so I'm sure we'll get into it but like I made so many sophomoric mistakes that I didn't anticipate thinking why I've I've already got this. I know how to get back at this. You know so it was it three years later. The second one is out and here. We are and I'm writing new recipes for third one and I'm saying what are you thinking? What is wrong with you to myself? Let's let's go ahead and a couple now. What are the couple key mistakes that you made in this kind of sophomoric experience? Look back and be like Anna. What the heck were you thinking girl? I have really dialed in how to write a recipe quickly. And when you do that you have a tendency to overlook certain things so I thought that like I was like there's going to be the first round. The first book had so many Typos. It was such as I had to reformat so much stuff that now. I know how to write a recipe. It's not gonNA take nearly as long in the editing process and I was one hundred percent wrong. It took the exact same amount of time And that's because you just have to keep looking at it because every time you look at stuff we'll jump out and despite having you know four proof readers and editor and myself looking at it. So many rounds from let's say marched. Let's say six months editing process of going back and forth. It's still there is still a couple of typos that I was like. No no no so. I know I know that happens with every book and you have to forgive yourself. You know you address if people right like Hey. This thing is missing. That thing is yes. I know I'm sorry about that. Here's what here's what the instruction is. You have to kind of be easier on yourself. However I'm not very good at being easy on myself. I'm very hard on myself. Do you ever get frustrated when you hear like those songwriters like yeah. I sat down and like the lyrics came to me like fifteen minutes and I just kind of made a beat to it and you know twenty minutes later you know. I had this fill in the blank. Hit Song made them multiple Muslim. Millionare's that happens. We especially with writing been writing jokes for years and there are some jokes that just come to you right away and then there are some. That's like I'm still work shopping. Some things and there's also the same way with recipes and some recipes. Come right away like Oh this would be great and perfect now. I have a certain set of parameters to the recipes into which they have to be innocent Gino sugars grains and so some things work really easily and really quickly. And some don't and I'd say the biggest trip that I have is all all of the intro pages at the beginning of the book. I don't like writing that stuff. I like writing the recipe so I definitely have my own areas of resistance which we all do and you have to. You have to just deal with it. And by the way fire nation. That songwriter has been writing songs for like twenty years to be able to sit down and then figure that out and fifteen or twenty minutes so they've all put in the time put in the wraps to actually make that happen. And now here's a little spoiler alerts but you had an issue a situation a massive wrench through into your launch machine from a little company. Run by a little guy named Jeff bezos called Amazon. So tell us what happened. And how the heck did you keep your sanity when it did happen? Honestly I think half the hair fell out of my head and which is a woman is not well for anybody is not an exciting thing to happen was so oh no it was. It was an exercise. I don't WANNA say in futility. It was an exercise in not letting a giant corporate behemoth dictate. How you feel about yourself and what you're putting out there and I learned. I practiced every day forgiveness every day. I forgive you with you. Yeah I know I now. I know I'm not the only one to through this cause I was literally like are they punking me lake. Am I on some list? So what happened was that the books were all I. I did my work of getting the books. Presold to a certain number That I was told great. You're going to get on the best seller lists the certain vessels fine whatever great And my most importantly you WANNA do a launch your book you know. Shimmy up the Amazon numbers because then more people will see it. People who've not been exposed to your work it's a very important thing and for the second go round. I have a wonderful dedicated rabid audience so I wanted to. You know you have that as well as the new folks. So the books were delivered to Amazon. They had thousands of books sitting on their loading dock for like three weeks and they even then once they finally got checked in they were they then have to do. What's called transshipping? Which is they ship them to other warehouses to fulfill the orders so it took about a month after the release date and in the meantime the Amazon Algorithm was sending these crazy emails to to people who preordered the book saying your estimated delivery and by the way that the launch date was October first of two thousand nineteen so the they said your estimated delivery will be some time between October thirty first and January. Twenty twenty and I was like well go ahead and put January twenty twenty on my tombstone because I'll be dead by then they'll ship these books like I was like what and also it's an exercise in my child is healthy. My husband's home me my friends. I have friends I have a good life. Let's not let this be the end of the world but every single day I really Amazon but we need Amazon. Because that's the that's the main hub through which we sell most of our books now. The good thing is barnes and noble. I immediately it was like. We'll get it barnes and noble their stock there because everybody seems to think that Barnes and nobles a red headed stepchild and they are not. They're ready to sell books but they sold out immediately and then they had to restock because everybody was like well. Screw Amazon. I'm going to go over to Barnes and noble so anyway it was a big cluster mess and I And I was like I. I learned that No matter how you think like you got this. You don't necessarily got this so I. It was also an exercise in releasing attachment to outcomes. And what I did instead was deepened. My relationship with my existing fan base to manage the situation

I'm going to even go so far as to say like Peleton or something we have to buy to bring into our lives if we return to the simplicity of what is right in front of US sometimes right within us when we turn inward deconstructing the automatic relationship.

We are putting our brain into threat mode when we pick up our phone or any time that we see our world as stressful picking up the kids needing to check off things on our to do list having to get enough sleep but pressuring ourselves to get one more thing done before we actually sleep. Do you see the trickiness of all this.

Say a what's up to fire nation ensure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know. Hey thank you for having me Yeah I love motor sports and I have been racing cars since when I was fourteen years sold. My last race was the twelve hours off. I will be well into your thousand eighteen so in miles per hour. How fast have you driven even one nine hundred miles per hour okay? That's fast. I remember one time. I was come down a highway and it was like kind of coming down a hill a little bit so there was like a decline on a highway. I think the speed limit was like seventy five miles per hour and I look down in. My speedometer. Had me going over one hundred miles per our and I freaked out. I'm like Oh my God I'm going over one hundred and I liked quickly like peeled back to like eighty or eighty five or something. So you've you've gone about twice voices fast as I have but again. I'm an amateur euro pro so that's not a big surprise but it was interesting. Matteo gave fire nation. A little exposure to in the introduction. Introduction is the fact that you have now built your passions in your business and now your life around sleep and of course we're GonNa talk all about your company. Eight sleep and wide unique mission. Is what the goals that you have for this company are but before we get into any of that stuff why sleep. What do you believe leave is important about sleep? And what are your thoughts around that topic. Sleep is one of three pillars of health. Right health is based on sleep nutrition. Three Sean and fitness and they're all of them pillars but at the end of the day sleep is really the foundation. Kills if you start sleeping to through our tonight. The regional trainings workout Notation that really matters sleep at the same time. Something that you every single day you cannot skip keep it and he's still a third of your life if you look at the average lifetime About Twenty five thirty years of your life spent asleep so it's really important that people start taking care of that part because it simpler than workout But you still need to be talk was a what do and what you dont. They're already a lot of studies that crew the sleep on Luxury D.. On health diabetes in some pockets on so lack of sleep can have very negative repercussions on on your health fire nation. Let me break this down for you. I have a virtual trainer four days a week. I am training my body on waits on high intensity interval training. I'm doing my Peleton on bike sessions. I'm doing that weight training four days a week. I'm on the Peleton bike. Five six sometimes even seventies per week. I've got my fitness on the control. I have a nutritionist. I have have a functional medicine. Doctor like I have really dialed in my Mac. Rose my proteins my fats. My carbs like I really understand that side of things like I have dialed that in. But guess what what when I wake up after a crappy night asleep. I don't eat right I I- bail on my fitness. Just skip it because I just don't feel like I can actually really function and do that so no matter the fact that I have the best intentions in the world. If I don't get at least a good night's sleep my nutrition suffers my fitness suffers. There's nothing that I can do around that but let me tell you the flip side when I wake up after a great night sleep and I'm talking asleep score score in the nineties because I have an ordering that tracks my sleep so I know exactly what I've gotten great deep sleep when my rem is on point when my wake-up overnight overnight my quote unquote. restfulness is low. And I wake up in the morning and I am absolutely energized. I feel rested. I give one of those big like cat yawns stretching stretching to the world I can take over the world I crush my workouts. I eat right. I'm hydrating correctly. I'm doing all the things. So when Matteo who says that sleep is the foundation pillar of those three pillars. He couldn't be more right because without a lease a good night's sleep you can just throw those other two pillars awake. You'RE NOT GONNA be able to operate at a high level on them. So let's keep moving forward Matteo and talk about specifically eight sleep. This is a company that you've have created that you founded you have a very strong mission with this company. You have very lofty goals. And you also made eight sleep a unique unique company. So it's not just like the other you know five ten fifty other mattress companies. That are out there so tell us about eight sleep why it's unique and then break down those missions and goals our mission is to make the world slips it so we came up with this concept of being sleep feet as adjusted right.

Is Peloton a Fitness Fad or a Tech Company?
"On this show. We clearly talk a lot about tech companies. There's some some obvious ones apple Microsoft alway and then they're all the startups that have changed our lives in recent years. Like the ridesharing APPS UBER and lift or food delivery companies like post mates and seamless and sometimes we take a step back and think wait. Is that Really Tech Company. We were talking about that with columnist. John on stole the other day and our episode about the luggage company away. And it's something. He's been thinking about lately especially connected to the fitness industry specifically the stationary bike company. Pelton so John's back to continue the conversation with us today. Hey John thanks for joining us. The driven me. I'm not on my Peleton. I just got off. So let's go. Let's go well. We could have been on the phone with you on your pilot and that would have made it so much more exciting but you would it. It would've been very embarrassing. I I'm I'm a low performer. On the Peleton leaderboard okay. So let's back up a little bit. POYTON has been in a battle L. with some of its competitors it sued both flywheel sports and echelon fitness in the last couple of years. What's at stake here? What exactly are they fighting over there? Fighting over depending on which company we're talking about that they're fighting they're fighting over technology patents intellectual property that both sides accused each other her of borrowing stealing lifting copying off their neighbors sort of test scores. So this goes back several years to the beginning of a movement called connected fitness. Basically take a smart tablet like a touchscreen tablet you hook it to your stationary bike and you begin begin. Pipe lining in a live or archived session with a high level instructor. What makes it? Unique is the leader board that is available available with the instructor showing you all the people that are in the class. Not just in the class proper in the physical class all over the world and these numbers can balloon to hundreds the thousands of people and it doesn't matter when you're taking the class it's dynamic in a way that it makes you feel like you're taking the class in real time competing with all these people in real time even if it's a week or a month take the classes taking place. So what is what are they fighting over there fighting over the intellectual property in this idea of the leaderboard. Yeah I mean Peleton a saying we came up with this dynamic with they call time sink leaderboard if you think about watching an Olympic sport like swimming and you watch Michael Michael Phelps. You know trying to break another record. There will be an could be as if he's competing against the old record holder from nineteen eighty-four. Whomever that swimmer was that set the record before you would see Phelps trying to beat that in real time very similar technology that Peleton says it spent a lot of time and money and engineering talent Jalan trying to develop and so fly will if I and the national on second came out with bikes dead operated very similar to its technology did Move to protect those patents not immediately but after those products come onto the market so this is basically an intellectual property dispute in in the fitness world. How strange is that for? This industry are how how common is that. For this industry I think the intellectual property if we take it out of the tech Rome Just the idea that somebody has come up with. A nifty idea in fitness is very common for someone to want to protect that. Whether it's Typo or Zimba Numba or Richard Simmons techniques or the Hula Hoop. I mean there's been decades if not a century of trying to patent ideas that people may have been doing this for for decades or centuries that it's just somebody came up with a better name for it. Those are hard to actually prosecute because the defendants often say this is a very ambiguous idea. This idea of using this specific routine to crunch avs is not novel or unique. I can do it too in. Don't sue me and so they don't often hold up in a court of law. What's unique about Peleton's John's argument here is that they're going into the world of algorithms in data not like sit ups and push ups when you start talking about specific technology that power software anywhere? There is a much more rich and robust precedent of companies being able to protect that sort of Ip and get money have settlements or even cease and desist on the other end. Underline the thing. That's so interesting here. Is that politics is I mean. Obviously lots of fitness makers you named the number of devices making devices is for fitness is also not a new thing but they still call themselves fitness companies. The air really talking about themselves as Tech Company so I WANNA kind of get back to that first conversation that we were having about. What does it take to be attacked company? And why is it important that a ride sharing APP or Salads Delivery Service or luggage company is calling themselves attack company. Why is that so common now and why is it so important? I think I think there's a couple of things if you unpack that idea. So the technology enables better life and it may enable enables better usage so if I'm a typical stationary bike rider later. I'm going to be bored to death after an hour. It's not going to happen for me with my short attention span so I have to turn on television and listen to music and even that can get old and I'd be like I'm just GonNa go outside and go on regular your bike or do something else. So there's the boredom factor there's also the lack of community factor in fitness particularly Solar Solo Sports. That make them rather dull and so so when you can bring technology like Says it has into the equation that actually makes people addicted to the type of even if it pseudo community that exists all over the world at the same time competing against each other. Instructors do it through the Internet software data algorithms and have a living testament in real time to how well you're doing you begin to talk about having a solution that people would see as technology enabled and not just fashion you know belts and and nuts and bolts. Why that's important is it could be the thing that enables breakneck growth? Not just fitness industry type of growth but tech company. Any sort of growth. We're talking double digits. Year over year expansive massive growth at propels a company like to the billions of dollars of revenue range. That is very atypical for a single fitness company. The place where I work out lifetime fitness taken like quarter-century to get to a billion dollars in revenue Peleton's tons track has been a lot faster. So you've got that you've also got the ability to charge more and ask investors to value you hire when those metrics bricks are actually working out so subscriber growth has been very robust at collegehype. Meeting People Shell Out Thirty Bucks Forty Bucks a month for Peleton's subscription way more than spotify defy or Netflix or Amazon prime to have access to the content and the real real time competitions and putting go back to investors and say look. This group is what they recall sticky. They're going to keep coming back. It's a endless source of revenue for us. We're not just selling a bike. Were selling a service and that really is often what we think of when we talk about it enabled the technical solution and so then investors start to say well okay. The typical fitness company gets this kind of multiple but Peleton's worth eight and a half billion dollars because we see them as a tech company upholding. Narrative is really important. Yeah and I mean we've seen other companies kind of fall from grace very publicly. We talked what about we work. They're valued at one billion but they were supposedly worth forty seven billion until investors basically realized yet. There's not as much tack here as just like take a landlord. Is there a danger in that kind of Thinking that kind of valuation we're finding out the pitfalls and the benefits fits in real time so we were a great example going from the forties of billions of dollars evaluation. To eight billion. Almost overnight is dramatic and intense but a company like uber or or lift which have filed appeals in the last year or so have really struggled to get over the initial evaluation and you don't invest in a company just for it to remain stagnant. You might as well by a bond if you just want a fixed income. You know that doesn't deliver much growth. The IPO Uber was supposed to be the sort of thing that skyrocketed so yeah there's companies that position themselves as tech companies and then investors start to figure out or asking scratch their head. Is this company really company. I think Peleton's valuation is much more modest that said they have struggled to get over the initial IPO price and they've shown some weakness in the months since they filed nothing to to do with the tech but more to do with the brand and so a lot of people would argue Peleton's a great marketing and brand company. But when they make a mistake like putting on an ad that a lot of people see a sexist Texas you see the the share price gets hit pretty hard and maybe it shows that this company just has a really strong brand that means to protect in that technology. Now on the the other side of the foot you've got tesla which for years has been talking about being tech company and has been valued very often like a car company and all of a sudden as they start to prove out the main player in the electric vehicle technology sector. There were eighty ninety one hundred billion dollars while lead the other guys in the dust. What kind of impact can this? The expanded definition of Tech Company have on an industry. We we've just been talking about the fitness industry. We're seeing it. We've seen it play out in some others. What kind of what kind of impact does it have? Well I think you can get everybody rushing to prove that they're also a tech company. You look at some of the alleged copycats in Peleton's wake it's not just. The companies is that they're suing. It's Nordic track it's it's bowflex it's makers of rowers and elliptical machines. treadmills all in all trying to tell the consumer or now that they too are tech companies. They may not even be striving to go public but they they do have investors and they do have employees and they do have customers that I'll also need to believe believe. Hey I don't want to just by the run on the treadmill for a few hundred bucks if I'm in the market I'll spend more if I can get more and so a lot of the conventional players begin acting like tech companies binny's whether that succeeds or not is a sector-by-sector it's very hard for a Marriott. For instance to convince people that their AIRBNB and other company see that's about to go public and has convinced everybody because of the efficacy in the in the ease of use of its APP. People say this is Tech Company. Even though it's a hospitality company it also also creates this kind of momentum and energy on the positive side can create momentum and energy where you get new entrance all the time so we may see better solutions to all kinds of exercise issues or even a lowering of the cost of entry. Peleton cost twenty five hundred bucks. I mean this is a first first world like premium one percent type of product. This is not for the masses. But maybe you'll start to see more companies crowd in as the cost of the technology comes down down as the amount of people wanting it so that the scale rises you begin to see better. Solutions Typically come in the market not always the case but sometimes the case that an industry can get better when they started thinking a bit more about the how technology data could make them better. It's a fascinating conversation. I'm sure we're going to keep having it. John Still thank you so much true joining us and that was your tech news briefing. I'm Correo come from the Wall Street Journal in New York. Thanks for listening.
Decade in Review: Tech and the Corner Office
"John is you wrote in your piece a decade ago. The world was waiting for the other shoe to drop. We had just experienced the financial crisis of two thousand eight and we were just getting back on our feet as an economy. What did the job of CEO look like back then? Yeah I think there was a lot more concern concern about just the general fragility of the economy. Could we trust regulators. Could we trust interest rates. Setters could we trust the SORTA heard of the fabric of what was holding together the global economy with what was going on the EU. There was general distrust of all of that ten years ago. I mean you didn't know if we were going to go through a double dip. Recession financial crisis had been just so traumatic and it did touch every industry that took several years to really emerged. Emerged from that with the sense of okay. This economies rolling we can begin to invest again begin to hire again and begin to think about innovation in leaps and bounds. mm several years versus just trying to make incremental innovation so investment started to roll sometime well after the financial crisis but yes definitely the beginning of the decade was was a given worrisome time for NCO energy industry. Well let's breakdown sort of piece by piece. The technological factors that have driven some of the intense change. We've seen in the corner corner office. First and foremost probably social media in two thousand nine. It was in its earliest stages. How is social media change? What we expect from CEOS? Yeah I don't I think we necessarily expect them all to be tweeting and on facebook and Instagram as much as we expect them to be responsive to how small and how fast the world has gotten with its response to crisis or trends or what's popular anything from the most recent examples with Peleton the exercise company and some of their ads. That didn't go over too well to earlier. This year with Boeing Definitely got into some real hot water with some of the technologies on on their planes and some of the fatalities that were related to not having everything in order there and then in front of that you had a lot of. CEO's being and pulled into a tumultuous time with the president of the United States who likes to tweet obviously and that creates a whole nother layer of communication and skill. Oh that the CEO didn't have to have you know five six seven ten years ago Slight miscalculation in the way the company presents itself on social doesn't communicate fast enough can lead to a barrage of criticism not just newspapers in in in in the marketplace but just in general arena of Public Opinion Union because it's all become so condensed on social media. Social media's also heightened this expectation of corporate social responsibility it allows companies to engage more directly with their customers customers and it pushes. CEO's to be Social Justice Warriors. Who have been some of the winners and losers in this arena? Yeah I think by all means in any company that has a strong front on issues like climate change gender equality issues. That are not always gonNA make a big difference in the ledger in in the dollars and cents but issues that are really near and dear to a particular millennials who are our shopping much more with their hearts than just their wallops these days. They're making decisions based on companies. They believe in you know one of the one of the interesting test. Cases Has Been Nike Shoe Company. That is ubiquitous that has been built on the strength of its affiliation with athletes in performance and recently they've had to make some tough decisions and this is obviously around on Colin Kaepernick An NFL player. WHO's not even playing anymore? But it's associated with the brand almost as much these days Michael Jordan not quite but He's on a level that very few athletes have been affiliated with Nike in the past. And that's because they've stood behind him. They've advertised in his favor. They've said that the steps that he took when he was on the football field kneeling the national anthem basically equating that to courageous I step on his part now. Recently the companies had to be very mindful of the the fact that not everybody clearly likes kneeling during the national anthem. They have a broad customer base and they need to be able to play in both the arena of understanding the sensitivity of of the part of its firebase. That doesn't agree with that. But the fact that most of its most loyal and passionate buyers will back Colin Kaepernick and so they've had to make business decisions that you know sometimes isolating ostracized. Part of. It's it's it's buyer base in order to continue to the edgy and continue to be progressive and continue to look like it's on the social edge versus being behind some of these issues so recently with a with a tennis shoe that Colin Kaepernick thought was offensive. The betsy rush you they. They had to pull that from the market again. I think it was about fearing backlash on social media. It wasn't worried necessarily worry about getting hit with boycotts and things like that. I mean social media is so powerful right now and. CEO's are are clearly very aware that they can be criticized heavily in a heartbeat. I'm talking with John. Stole of the Wall Street Journal Moving on here John. There's also a different kind of pressure. The rise of the Fang companies facebook Apple Amazon Netflix. Google the five most popular tech stocks out there. They've developed lt normal power. Can you tell us about their influence on business decisions. Yeah I think it's fascinating to talk about the in the in the context of the last decade or decade. Plus if you think think about ten twelve years these companies not apple necessarily but Amazon for sure facebook Netflix spotify. You go down the list of major her tech disruptors major tech companies which almost every customer now interacts with ten twelve years ago these companies were in their infancy. We didn't know the kind of influence they were going to have on marketplace or even a technology much less overall American life. Today they're ubiquitous. Everybody has netflix. Everybody streams their music. rarely early. Do you see physical copies of movies. And CDs and items like that. And meanwhile there's an increasing number of people shopping online through Amazon or now through their competitors every CEO has had to respond faster than they ever thought they would to these disruptive forces I had a session with number of CEO's last this week in Washington where some of these companies have very little technology built into the way that they do business they make nuts and bolts or which it's washing machines and things like that they aren't high tech features but they realize that it might be in the way that they talk to customers. It might be in the way. They manage their supply. Chains Fang. These facebook Amazon Apple Apple Netflix. Google had changed the way that just central businesses done. And I'll just give you a quick example if you think about Amazon and what we know them for which is an online bookseller now and online good seller their money machine is cloud computing and that is a completely different animal than what we associated Amazon with fifteen fifteen years ago but they've just changed the way that we store data and we moved at and Microsoft and IBM old blue chips have had to catch up. So you see this every day. Every every headline in the Wall Street Journal it seems that these companies are influencing the day to day business decisions across industries and across the company. What about artificial intelligence the mechanization tation of basic tasks? That's beginning to change. The makeup of the workforce as employers our companies had to adapt. Yeah this is. This is the megatrend to watch. I think for one employment base. The workforce is getting older. People are are waiting longer to get into the workforce because they're going to college longer. What have you and so the the basic complexion of who will worker is and what their skill set is what their mentality is is changing in walks artificial intelligence? We are not new to the story of automation. The Nineteen Eighty S and nineteen ninety S. A lot about the robot plants and making sure that you had as many robots as prudent to take out a lot of the human capital and increase efficiency. Now we're in an age when you know again much like the conversation that we're having about Amazon or facebook and they're they're they're wide influence over business artificial intelligence and the ability liberty to manipulate collect and analyze and apply data to the basic business operations of what you do it's table stakes if you're not using data whether it's customer data or logistics data or employees data your going to be caught short against competitors who are probably more nimble. They may not have as much capital but they're able to use artificial intelligible use the machine learning to create a better mousetrap. Now on the employment side I think this is about making workers better. I've done a lot of work on talking with employment economists who see a changing but not necessarily a shrinking workforce United States and if people are going to get older they're gonNA need more automated tasks if workers are are in general older if the workforce is more fifty five twenty five. You're GONNA need tasks where computers are really assisting in aiding being and keeping the momentum going where the people are further removed from education or further removed from their early even their prime years. You're going to see artificial intelligence. It's come in and do a big job there today. I think we're still in the early innings the very early innings of this. We hear a lot about automation in like an Amazon logistics. Six warehouse. Where you hear a lot about automation at Tesla? I've been to the Tesla plant. There are still thousands of people working and that doesn't mean that they're going to be replaced but the ability to efficiently recently moved products through a production system or through a supply chain. I think this is going to be over the next ten years. We're going to be having a conversation. Twenty thirty about rapid development and and major development. That's happened in that area over the decade to come John. It used to be that. CEO's could set a five year plan and work toward that goal with new technology advancing so quickly quickly in the public essentially reacting in real time through. Social media is a five year plan really possible anymore. It doesn't feel like it is and I think I think there's a couple of things that CEO's have told me Whether it's ingenuity ran Pepsi for many years or even Carlson running Houdini a small manufacturer of clothing and I talked to folks who are in the financial industry and a couple of do things are changing the ability to really look out five years because you had this kind of expectation on. CEO's many years ago to set out that five year plan then go meet them it could that'd be profit it could be revenue goals. EPS Return on capital investment. And that stuff. That pressure doesn't go away but it is becoming more difficult in one of the factors that is making it more difficult. Is this rapid change in technology. You really don't know what's going to happen in twenty twenty in terms of the rate of advancement and the size of innovation vacation. So Yeah I think ubiquitously I've got CEO saying it is very difficult to look one year out much less five. It doesn't take the pressure off. And they have to do it. But but boy you better be ready to rip those plans be Nimble and be responsive to consumer who are seemingly constantly demanding faster and better productivity out of their companies. This I guess this is related from where you sit right now. What do you expect that the biggest challenges will be for CEOS going into the next decade nature is for CEO's? I used to say talent there. Always is this concern about particularly with companies. That have big workforce's are they going to be able to staff them with types of people both in the C. Suite and white collar level and the blue collar level with folks that can come up with new ideas and execute on new ideas below. That is going to be the thing that we talk about with trying to resolve uncertainty. Uncertainty doesn't go away but with these inputs of of trade wars and sort of this regulatory guessing guessing game. That's going on. Those are things that will eventually become industry changes and so the companies that actually begin to adopt adopt new strategies new ideas new products companies. That we don't even know about today could be the next Amazon's the next facebook's next next one to ten I know Wall Street Journal reporter. John Stole John. Thanks a
"peleton" Discussed on Slate's Culture Gabfest
"Okay for those of our listeners. Who Don't know Peleton as I understand it a stationary bike? It's got a screen mounted on the bars and via some kind of subscription. Can you link up to a spin. Instruction class things pretty expensive. I think it's about twenty five hundred dollars plus whatever you're paying to stay connected to it. The gift that gives back DOC is An ad for said peleton features a Yuppie husband giving his already stick thin wife Peleton for Christmas and the next thirty seconds. has been described as an absolute absolute horror show. This woman works anxious ass off trying to get even thinner for her husband and it turns out at the end of the AD. The twist is She's been making a kind of video radio diarrhea for progress on this device which she then gives to her husband for Christmas one.
Tone-Deaf Peloton Ad Stirs Controversy
"Uh from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Wednesday December eleven. It's the ad everyone is talking about but not in a good way Peleton's thirty-second holiday spot has gone viral. You know the one in which a man gives his wife a stationary bike. Critics are calling it sexist. I classes and tone-deaf here's what it sounds like now time first time I that's right excited. Let's do this five days in a row. He's price I am six. Am Peleton began running adding the ad for its twenty three hundred dollar bike in November but it was only last week when social media observers took notice and reacted with a vengeance. The many troubles according to critic stem partly from the look on the woman's face. She appears almost terrified throughout the spot. Is it just well her acting or does she actually fear that if she doesn't spinner brains Out every morning at six o'clock she won't have the beautiful body. Your husband demands. No one seems to know for sure but the fact that we never see the male character doing anything but sitting on the couch. Sure doesn't help one tweeter scoffed. Nothing says maybe you should lose a few pounds like gifting. You're already rail thin life partner of Peleton. It's complicated though. The woman is model gorgeous to to begin with and she looks exactly the same. When at the end of the ad it's supposed to be a year later and she tells her husband she had no idea how much this would change her? Well how exactly we. We don't know the question is leading critics to say maybe she dropped her weight from one. Oh five to one zero three. So go the snarky comments about body shaming and prompting defenders to suggest asks that she probably wanted the bike for the other benefits of intense exercise from releasing endorphins to getting stronger. The bike maker didn't help itself self much with its non apology apology. In a statement of Peleton representative wrote while we're disappointed in how some have misinterpreted this commercial. We are encouraged by grateful for the outpouring of support. We've received from those who understand what we were trying to communicate in a column for INC magazine. Jason often said that's about as passive aggressive. Aggressive is a non apology can be adding. It's the absolute worst possible way. You can ever respond to a customer or critic so he didn't like it very much as the backlash ashed mounted peleton share price cratered last week. It dropped about fifteen percent reducing the company's value by one point six billion dollars according to CBS. News but hold John there. You would be a simple matter. If the thirty second spot were completely responsible for Peleton's stock slide but look businesses almost always more complicated. That's true this time around to. There's just a whole lot more going on here. Number One Peleton stock has risen seventy percent since its public offering including about twenty percent. We're black Friday so already. Those stock prices were sky high. There were due to come back down to Earth. CBS News analysts pointed out. Furthermore the so-called lock-up Period Korea Time following an IPO in which insiders aren't allowed to sell their shares is due to end as early as next month meaning. There could be a sell off on the horizon. Finally Peleton rivaled sold cycle so far only a studio based business plans to begin selling a stationary bike in direct competition to Peleton early next year. Now at production time Peleton John was still running the offending. Why but it could be because as the old saying goes all publicity is good publicity the trade pub? Pr Daily quoted marketing. I thought leader Peter Shankman who wrote on twitter if you really think the creepy Peleton commercial is going to hurt their brand. You
How Building Community Can Supercharge Your Business
"Well communities can be very powerful force in helping to grow your company but how do you harness them here to show us how Jono Bacon again. Who's the leading community? Imagine Strategic Consoling Speaker and author of a book called people powered how communities can supercharge your business brands and teams his previously wrote the best selling book the art of Community Jones the founder of the primary annual conference for community leaders and managers call the Community Leadership Summit Jona welcome to the show. Thank you great to be here. So let's first define our terms when you're talking about community do you mean in real real life ones or virtual ones are both I think it's both The way I look at it in this essentially three models but communities a-this that we can think of the first is what I refer to consumer to be the people who get together because they shared interests such as Star Trek fans. Who took him by the show live along with the And then the second type is what I call champion. Which is why people go the extra mile? They wanted to write articles produced videos. They want what to do advocacy setup events But then the third type is what I call collaborative which is why people come together to build something and that could be either collaborating Britain around South West which is where the open source revolution. That's happened or it could be for example building applications that sit and in stores such as so i. It seems that people or more physically Iceland ever are these kinds of communities actually helping to bring people together. Absolutely I mean I think what's really interesting is that historically people have been forming into communities for a number of years. I mean people get together and trolls and have book clubs and things like that but each each session each meeting that they would have nothing would happen in between and you know you just show up each week and what's happening. What's happened in the in the last five? To ten years with advent you know in the course if technology is that now we're able to fuse together. Physical and online worlds much more effectively than APP so for example you can have physical meeting. Take get together and they they do talk and they network and they have mixes but then you can keep people connected through online forums and incentives and social media pieces like that so so. I'm finding that what's happening is. We're seeing this especially in business. The value of having an interactive relationship with your audience is more important uncalled than ever. I mean just today as we record this. Google is fish Two billion dollars and I think one of the main reasons for that is that it is not just a manufacturer factual watches of exercise equipment. They built a huge community of people get together and exercise each each other. Make sure the backup so I think it's lowering the various people spend more time with each other another example as Peleton right. People are getting together at home but they're getting together together with their community to exercise. This is so when you talk about these. Three communities interest or become a champion around software is any one type of community stronger than the other. I don't think one's necessarily stronger but I think we've seen More examples and and the road is being traveled. mullets some of these teams for example with collaborative is what people get together to build. Something I mean one of the best examples that is open source. I mean we've seen is one such example Cuba nephews which is formed that runs. The cloud has brought together over two thousand software developers from over fifty competing companies to build a platform that's completely open-source completely. Three towers how you know the way the world works in terms of the cloud. So that said there's a lot a lot of there's a lot of expertise that we also see on on the on the On the kind of the the consumer side we've seen so many people have been getting together into into the groups into events forums where they have a common interest where it's a little less proven is this fusion of Of of the insieme Marcus View from simple people being used products and how they blend together the coast and and the collaborative elements it'd be an online at the same time and and and this is where telethon she were a really good example. They've built an enormous community of writers Online he will get together arriving together. The doing you know power trading and things like that but now they're swimming more and more into in person events as well and that is where I think we're seeing the evolution of community really starting to to grow is that you're saying is that people actually start as a community virtually and then they get to know each other than they wanna meet in person in many cases that's the case that the thing with virtual little courses that there's a very low bar entry you know all you really need is your cell phone and you can get connected whereas if you want to go and meet somebody in person then you gotta take time off my after go babysit. Say you've got trouble somewhere. So everybody liked with anything window shelters I and it's the same thing with communities you Kinda poke had through the door and you see what's going on and it becomes more and more compelling what happens is you didn't you didn't stop to To want to invest more time and effort into typically when people the events and then when people understand especially all the small business owners listening that creating a community attach. Your Business is so important because as I said time and time time again people no longer want to buy your stuff that Wanna just buy your product shove your services they really want to have an experience and if they have a community to support that experience Jono it really can get them to talk about Your Business and can really propel it where you never thought possible. Absolutely I mean the thing is I think it's easy easy to forget when we you know when you take away the screen the computers the podcast everything. We are fundamentally animals and automobiles one of the key. The things that we hunt for and we searched for is a sense of belonging is when you feel pop something. When you feel valued by a social grouping and it's one of the reasons why people are you know Family oriented example. What happens when you build a community wrapped around your business? You have a relationship with your customers to write a product to them and you know. Hopefully you'll get a referral out of them and maybe some good reviews what happens. Is they feel author relationship with your organization and they and you get this amplifier effect. Where they need other customers by the consumers and it builds a sense of belonging and it's one of the reasons why salesforce Oracle sap built communities over a million uses and harley-davidson has got seven hundred rights local chapters all over the world because people are upset and it builds customer attention for years? So it's a very. It's a very powerful tool so joan. Of course the sixty four million dollar question we always want these vibrant active communities associated with business. How do you get started building a successful community so This is one of the reasons why I wrote my new book. People Pal it is is sadly I believe. There is no silver bullet for this. But what I've learned over the cost of my twenty one year career is that there are a set of consistent pieces that you should put in place so in a nutshell. The first thing we have to do. Is You have to decide which of those three and the committee models most aligned to those and sometimes it will be a combination of a couple of and the first thing we should do identify the value value. Like what is the value went to bring to the community mentor. You have to stop that and the value of your business will slow wants to identify and then what we do is we we build out and said the personas. So what are the types of community activity WANNA say. They want people to write software. You won't be able to organize it. Do you want people to write documentation or obstacles we we we carve out this own as much as a sense of what are the things incentivize those people and how do we find them. So for example the wing incentive device software engineer is very different to the way in which you would incentivize Design it for example to participate in your community. What what does it gives us? kind of a blueprint reprint of the end game. And then we break that down into into a set of annual objectives were willing to stop focusing on how we accomplish those different paces and the the ingredients that sit in those objectives. We'll be a multitude of different things. For example content is a great way bringing people in social media the right way of bringing people in the one of the things we need to figure out is how people communicate with each other communities apple have like a clubhouse it could come and communication platform the key thing here is stop small and it's right there are many clients that I've worked with over the years. Where they you know they bring me in? Because they kicked off this huge community initiative and they haven't got the traction Russian they wanted and in many cases. It's because it was overcomplicate. You need to do is the key trick is is stop small focus the right kind of persona. They're so because in the right kind of value and then tracked the right kind of metrics. It's right over and over again because when you are able to read the data and how it impacts impacts your committee strategy you can then choose it very specific to what your business once and. That's kind of what I walked in and people powered so Jonah what are the pitfalls pitfalls though a bringing actually people into your work right so your clients. People are watching everything you're doing and they're able to comment on it. Yeah Yeah I mean You know everything is a is a is a bunch of roses I think one of the pitfalls is it can open up some of the vulnerabilities of your business. You know if you think about how most businesses operate you have a hierarchy and instead of decision making and you'll customers and you'll uses they're they're placed in a very specific way in your world. You meant for example you you reach out to them. Through newsletters new provide product to them the way they contact. Talk to you through your customer support lines for example when you have a community for it to really succeed. What you need to do is to build an interactive relationship with them and what that means is you need to train your team members in how to engage with them and how to solicit feedback from them and it requires is giving a little bit not so much control but records giving some oxygen to your customers and they didn't have before and that can be suffering for a lot of businesses and it requires? It's very castle amount of training because you can probably imagine. Communities request functional. It requires marketing team product. Team your engineering team to be involved to deliver the different pieces of the puzzle And

Unicorns' Pre-IPO Profits Face Increased Investor Scrutiny
"We works. IPO efforts are floundering. We reported this weekend that some board members considering asking CEO Adam Newman to step down. That's led some investors to take a closer look at other companies like Peleton who wants to go public look but don't yet make a profit Charlie. Turner has been finding out more from Jean Eagle Shem gene it seems like old times for richly valued tech companies when they go public. They claim they're profitable when the evidence indicates that they've never turned a profit we'd the parent of office based company. We work as another Unicorn it delayed its IPO about what a week ago due to investor doubts about its valuation finances and governance it has really tried to polish its financial image especially in the press. Yes exactly what we found is an investor presentation from back in two thousand fourteen where we were talking about having a profitable business model l. and the rule so articles in the press from then on from a couple of years later again just asserting without qualification that we work is profitable affordable and when we went to those media companies and said where did this come from one said internal documents another said they were told they directly it by chief executive so again as an example of the company saying we all profitable and using measures that according to them are different in in the black so we work has metrical community adjusted Ebola which is just a metric no one else uses so they all have these slightly different tailored Ed metrics that magically go from in the red to end the black okay as one example Peleton interactive is going public this week. It has a multi a billion dollar valuation but no matter how hard it pedals. It's still spilling red ink. That's exactly right I it's been running at a loss since it was formed. It says says it's not clear when it will reach profitability but then chief executive last year went on television and said we are profitable so it's a good example these companies were they say they have these metrics that they say are bad reflect how well the businesses performing coming in terms of stripping out costs related to the growth. That's their argument. That's the metric. They're using their stripping out all these costs. That's a number of these companies. He's US exactly it's not clear what Peleton based its statement on but a lot of companies lift is a good example they using measures that they say represents events what happens with the underlying business strips out all startup costs all the gross costs certainly they would say you get these massive losses because you're taking it always costs but they say things like in we were case the cost of doing business before they rent it out or the cost of advertising they they say those are not reflective of the underlying profits of the buildings once they're up and running other people would say I she you need you do need to look at these costs because because for the investors what matters is the bottom line what about lift lift is already gone public and I think it's stock has basically suffered since its public offering. Is this an example chapel of investors just getting wise to lift well. I think certainly we sing with some of these UNICORNS that once they published their financials then investors as-as do definitely have some questions about the level of losses. I mean lift says it has a clear past the profitability and they again use this metrical Michael contribution that they say again reflects the underlying profitability what can the Securities and Exchange Commission do about this aren't there fines against companies that mislead mislead the public in mislead investors regulators about their financial condition the SEC does have jurisdiction over this to the extent that they say that policing whether private companies make misleading statements and they in fact last year brought a case against a company for the way presented its metrics search for not giving the audited numbers equal prominence but in practice actually the SEC where the private companies where they're not directly selling to small investors justice in practice this is going to go after different cases you can

Don, I believe that's how you pronounce it. Okay. Here we go. Let's let's get some of your questions Marianne writes that she is almost ninety one living. Well, she has savings of about twenty five thousand dollars or show. She said that she has an estate plan that she did twenty one years ago and she established a revocable living trust, but it has not had a single adjustment. Since the last twenty one years almost everything in it is changed. I've been a widow for ten years. I no longer have any real estate. I move from New Mexico to Minnesota where I live with my youngest child. The attorney who established our trust died. Never good sign when you outlive your estate attorney and the person who did the trust died where do I start to get a handle on things without it, costing me thousands of dollars to get straightened out. I get income from social security and a retirement account from the state of New Mexico where my husband was a state employee. She makes two grand a month living expenses. About six hundred bucks a month over that she pulls the money from savings. She still drives by the way ninety one. She driving her nineteen year old car wonder, what kind of car that is one of the bet I'm gonna guess my put my my guessing Toyota Camry. What do you think? That's a pretty good guess. Anyway, I don't know like driving at ninety one. I don't want to be driving at sixty one let alone ninety one. So God bless. Let's see. She wants to talk to someone face to face. She lives in Minnesota small suburban city about twenty miles north west of Minneapolis. Here's what I would do. I think that you can go you're not gonna have to spend thousands of dollars. You need a simple. Will you need a simple will? And you probably don't even need a trust anymore, but someone has to do this. And so what I would do is. I would make an appointment with you and your child and you need to find someone in Minnesota. And maybe your kid, wait. What's your kid doing for estate planning? Maybe you could both do your estate planning to get the name of couple of lawyers. Maybe young lawyer who can just do again, something simple for you. And it does make sense to pay for this because it's a legal document. And it's not going to be thousands of dollars. But it could be a thousand dollars. How about that? I wonder if I know anyone trying to think do I know I don't think I know in a state attorney in Minneapolis area. But. What I would do is. I would just ask for some referrals and help you and get your kids involved. Also that would be helpful. So good luck with that. And yeah, go go get some help.
