Thanks to the Pandemic, Apple’s Big Event Was Just … an Event
"Been covering these sorts of apple events in product reveals for a while now yes. Seventy five years. Have the one compare it was definitely very different though in June we had apples developer's conference and it was pretty similar to that. So in the sense of we're getting used to this, but it's definitely different than me flying out to Cupertino waiting in line to get into a big amphitheater in a room packed full of. Apple Employees, other press, and hearing a lot of excitement about new products. And on the products, let's start with that side of things. What are your biggest takeaways from what was announced and what star listeners be thinking about when they go to buy their next of ice I think the biggest thing I want everyone to remember when they go to buy an apple device is that getting the most expensive apple device doesn't necessarily anymore mean it's the best one to get. Now sure there are going to be features that they're going to have in these higher end products like we saw yesterday with the Apple Watch series six announcement. That is a three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars watch. But we also got an Apple Watch se that starts at two hundred, seventy nine dollars and has a lot of the features you would probably want seeing that also on the IPAD so you can get a three hundred twenty, nine dollar really good ipad. You get an IPAD air new IPAD air that's five, hundred, ninety, nine dollars or you can go up to the eight hundred dollar ipad pro but that IPAD air is actually a really good value and has a lot of the same things as that pro. and. We also heard a lot about services. Apple has really been leaning into this part of its business lately. Did we get any news there? We heard a lot about services yesterday and I think it was really interesting how apple threaded that throughout the hardware announcements specifically fitness plus announcement, and this was an announcement of a new on demand video workout service think about your Peleton's about your other sort of video workout videos but this comes. With an Apple Watch or you have to pay extra ten dollars a month to get this with your Apple Watch and this really sort of emphasizes if you've got this wash if you've got this hardware, then you can also get the service and for apple that means you're going to have recurring revenue. You're going to have this customer who didn't only pay for the hardware, but is now gonNA pay a monthly service fee for this new service. So some changes there another big change normally a new iphone would be the headliner of this event that's been pushed because of coronavirus related supply chain issues. But given everything we saw yesterday do you have any predictions about what new features we might see when that eventually is announced? There is no mention of the iphone which. Actually shocking to me I figured Oh they're going to at least tease it. This is the September event. They're going to remind people. We know we usually gather for the IPHONE but coming soon. But there was none of that. I would say the biggest hint we got about what's coming with the IPHONE is that the Apple Watch will no longer ship in its box a USB adapter the one that you plug into the wall that no longer is GonNa be shipped. In. The box and apple says, that's for environmental reasons that we all have these already why do we need more of these ending up in the landfill? I think apple will do the same exact thing with the iphone coming next month will hold you to that taking a step back here. You know this event is typically meant to really hype up the products that apple announces with no iphone and you mentioned sort of a less flashy event than we're used to. Are we expecting to see an impact on apple's bottom line I would say this is one of the most boring apple events in recent history that said I actually think it could end up being one of the most successful in terms of products announced you had the lower end ipad refresh the three, hundred, twenty, nine dollars Ipad, which we know as a top seller for apple, and now you also have these new apple watches that are. Not as expensive as the usual three, ninety, nine version but one that's more affordable has a lot of health features and you have also this this backdrop of the pandemic and people wanting to spend less and focus on health and I think that the Apple Watch I it's it's been sort of less of a niche product, but it's not spread over to everyone and I. Think this year we're going to see it really broaden its horizons. And here with the announcement of not only the different pricing tiers and having three different models out. But also the family sharing this is a feature they announced where you can actually give the watch to your kid even if they don't have an iphone and you can then set it up and control it and you can also use it to track your kid if they're at school, I think that is really showing how big of A. Market Apple thinks the watch can get into. So they've had things like fall detection for people who are older. They now have this feature for those who are younger. So I really think this is the beginning of seeing the the watch a lot bigger than we had thought
Oracle Results Bolstered by Cloud-Computing Growth
"Peleton and Oracle both on the move. After results we got full team coverage. Let's kick things off Josh Lipton. Oracle's quarter Josh.

Peloton cuts prices, capitalizing on people staying at home
"Of Peleton up ten percent this morning, the exercise equipment maker announced a couple of changes to its menu of offerings. They're cutting the price of their core exercise bike by more than twenty percent. They are also adding a more expensive version of the bike. They're also going to be adding a less expensive version of the treadmill. Peleton but I totally understand why the stock is up I mean, this is I think if you're a felon shareholder, this is what you want to see. You WanNa see them. Among other things broadening the number of things that they offer people. Yeah, they're becoming more affordable gives them a more of a reach especially, if they can price the core by competitively and then get the subscription revenue added on top of that. So it's largely good news they still have of very expensive You know on the bikes they're taking that down but the treadmill is still a above four, thousand dollars, which I think is First of all, they don't have the same sort of brand association with treadmills. Stationary Bikes and I think that they have plans to get that treadmill down sometime next year as very substantial cut in the price of that down to sort of twenty, five, hundred But they have all business they can handle at the moment and that is what you want to hear from a company.
John Foley on Peloton's Growth in the Pandemic
"John. Thanks for joining me today. I'm excited to be here. Thanks John. Appreciate it last time I saw was in the offices this was right before. was declared and we all went home, and so that's been several months but think it's fair to say that we could tell things were getting serious about cove nineteen at that point but couldn't have imagined what was going to happen over the course of the next month and full blown pandemic. In the way, it would hit your business in our business in every business in between. That's right. Twenty, twenty twenty what a what a wild year so far so far. One of the consequences for Peleton was having Jaeger critical new product launch and I really WanNa get into that and talk in depth about what's coming. But let's look backward a little bit not inconsequential at all is telling me you know what's gone on in these nearly last six months what they've been like running a business people lobby spent hunkering down in their homes and gyms have been closed and you offer these livestream workouts right in the home with the device, and early in the pandemic in fact, you guys were reported in the ninety four percent jump in your over your subs. I know there's been hiccups and it'll you've had a hard time immediately filling orders for instance, but it has has the pandemic Ben. Good. For Peleton. Well, it's hard to say good in the same sense with pandemic. At all but to your point, John It's definitely been wind in our sails as far as our bike sales and tread sales, and we've just been frankly happy to be there for our members are existing numbers in our new members who are buying bikes and threads and still getting them delivered, and we were also pretty excited to be able to innovate and bring the the live studio content from not from our studios anymore of for the for a couple of months but from the homes of our instructors. we continue our live format and connection with our with community through the crisis. So it was to your point a lot lots to do was a wild time for us like like everybody, but your business has been has been strong for sure also a little bit. You've got extensive background in ECOMMERCE and you know a number of different technology platforms and then legacy business like Barnes and noble once upon a time where the head of ECOMMERCE. Obviously everybody going into the pandemic lot of uncertainty in a lot of unknowns. And probably a moment of what's this going to do to our fledgling business? But when did it go from that to we have this enormous opportunity. That we're going to have to walk through and we're going to have to do it quickly and as you know as as as as successfully as we can. It happened very quickly John. I mean I I think it was Friday the thirteenth ironically in March when. Found of everyone stopped going to work and working from home and it became obvious and evident that this pandemic was upon us and it was going to be meaningful. Within a week or two of that, we saw a massive surge in our sales and we knew that this was a moment that people are going to Peleton in their home, and we we did see it as an opportunity to be totally opportunistic. We right away started giving away our digital content for ninety day, free trial which wasn't the best business because we still had to pay our music partners but we didn't care. We wanted to do our part for our communities and to help people stay saying in the pandemic so We were at one point I mean we're obviously in parallel scaling our supply chain or manufacturing and trying to make more bikes and tries as fast as possible. But we also have the pure software and digital content platforms across any one of your devices whether it's your phone, your IOS or android phone, or any of your television screens through Apple, TV android, TV fire, TV Roku, all these other platforms that you can engage with our content and do strengthen yoga and all the different stuff. So in that world, it wasn't dependent on our honor scaling supply chain. So we decided to give that ninety days away for free to new members, and we saw a massive explosion in that as well. So You know you alluded to this already and and it's it's a big topic of conversation and focus for investors is this growth curve in these growth big growth that you're planning? Because the addressable market for exercise gear is so large and the shifting dynamics of not being able to go you know at your whim to the local gym and use theirs is fueling even more enthusiasm but also pressure, and then you've got on top of this, you'll start about this virtual community where people can used gear but they can also use the community with people that they're getting to know or or somebody recognizable in the instructor. So you're about to test whether there's an appetite for a wider range. Of Palestine products, I'd like you to talk about what's coming out and how it's different than what the company already offers. You have a twenty two hundred dollar bike right now in a forty, three, hundred dollar treadmill, which are the main staples from what we know if we're going to A. Showroom on the website. So so what's coming in what's different about what you already offer? Yes. So we have two main lines of business as you know John and it's a stationary bike platform and then ate a treadmill platform. And the current bike is who have been called the best cardio machine on the planet the original Peleton bike, and what we're announcing is our Peleton plus and it's a new platform with a bigger screen that swivels now and allows from that bike platform our members to engage in all of our content whether it's the yoga or the strength or the boot camp or all of the different styles of content that we offer. They can now engage in that in a much more convenient easy to consume experience on the Peleton bike plus platform. In parallel, we've been working on a new treadmill platform, our original peleton tread, plus is the forty, five, hundred dollar but product that is kind of the Rolls Royce of the category because it has the Slat belt technology and it's one of the best running surfaces in the world if not the best running surface. And what we're bringing to market this month is a lower price tread that in a really open up the market and make it much more affordable for people to get a Peleton tread and take our boot camp classes and are running classes from home and really do full body workouts. Now whether it's on the less expensive treadmill that has a belt technology or with our Peleton bike plus which now allows you to consume. All of our content and not just the great cardio, but also the strength and the full body content on that. So the summary John is that we now have a portfolio on the bike side and on the trade side, a bike and a bike plus and a tread and tread plus. So depending on how much you're looking to spend and what you're looking to do we have now four options for you to engage pelivan platforms.

Well, Reynolds decided to help his career and Tro Peleton at the same time he cast releasing an ad for. In it, she in two friends are sitting at a bar, their nursing MARTINIS.

Charities Struggle to Serve, Even Survive, Amid Pandemic
"During Times of need nonprofit organizations often jump into help. But now with millions of Americans out of work and donations, dropping many of these charities are themselves having a tough time making ends meet? It's an issue Wall Street Journal Senior Writer. Betsy Morris has been covering betsy first. Let's talk about where's the greatest need He S I mean right now there's a huge disparity in where dollars are going when it comes to nonprofits many food banks can't keep up with all of the. Funding that they're getting. You know also the work that they need to do, but they're really getting a lot of funding right now. And so is interestingly crisis. Nonprofit. Disaster Relief. So there's just a ton of money going toward say vaccine development or medical research, communicable disease research suffering right now are all the nonprofits that do kind of the their normal social service work. So taking care of all the the people who. Have lost jobs or about to lose shelter you know the arts have suffered a lot and. So. Yeah it's it's really unequal right now and betsy is their risks of groups will fold and are looking at innovation to help clients or raise money. Many of them a percentage of them nobody knows exactly how many probably will fail. But in the meantime yes there's a lot of there's a lot of innovation going on right now there's one little nonprofit in New York that basically is all about jazz and they can't have their performances they they. Help support young musicians. They can't do any of that right now. So what they've done which has been interesting is they just had a series of. You know kind of virtual concerts by individuals, jazz performers who were who are really kind of famous and very interesting. The Multiple Sclerosis Society had like many others in the spring had their annual walk series of walks around the country to raise money. and. They were able to raise less than half of what they would normally raise what it's doing now though is a real. Bike a thon comes now and into the fall, and normally that would all be in person part of it can be in person now, some people really on their bikes but but part of it is they've made it virtual so you can stay at home. Your Peleton or whatever you know. You're stationary bike is at home and they've been able to allow you to hook into what all the other riders are doing and have these events, and so it'll be interesting to see I think they're they're hopeful that that will be you know we'll raise probably not everything that they were able to raise last year but they will do better than half for sure. I think they think maybe two thirds of what they raised last year and the need is constant I mean obviously. Sometimes it will fluctuate but. But the bottom line here is at the neatest constant it is constant and these little organizations directors will say you know even though we're not allowed to have our. Tutor kids at our community center or. Counsel them if they're trying to kick drugs or alcohol. We're not meeting right now but we know those kids you need the services and probably even more than ever so and that's true of. All of the different people. And problems that these nonprofits grapple with. So just looking to the future what's the plan of? Attack Woods their business plan or is that just still up in the air like much of life these days I, think the business plan is to if the virus has affected, how they can get to the people they serve they've created all sorts of interesting ways to try to do that. New Ways. And in many cases, it can't be zoom. Because of the you know a lot of people don't have great, Wifi so but in terms of the funding. It's there are a lot of them who are doing quote unquote scenario planning. You know if we're able to raise as much with our our virtual fundraiser, then we can provide these services if we are not able to. Then we go to scenario be which is. To cut I, mean many are having to lay workers off lay off staff you know if. They'll figure out new in different ways to get the services to the people who need them,
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
People Are Panic-Buying Meat, Toilet Paper and Pelotons
"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 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 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 interestingly I think we talked about this last time. Guys that we have a 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 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 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 ten or eleven weeks in some markets and I think we're down to six or seven weeks. Most markets at this point and as we continue to build capacity in manufacturing pipeline at supply chain. were able to. Meet the demand a little bit more faster, so 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 You've got supply chain right? 'cause these these are made overseas, and they've got to be shipped across the Pacific. Ocean and 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 vans that go to people's homes and set them up. How has that? How's that work? Work Yeah that was 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 We found a lot of creative solutions on how to deliver bikes 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 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 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 you know we want to keep our save. And and our and we WANNA keep our employees safe, and it's working 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 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 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, 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 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, 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.

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

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.

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.

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.
