Morris America Happy birthday and let's never forget what happened A year before on July 3rd 17 75 guy by the name of George Washington, General Washington Your command of the Continental Army, and the rest is history. And it's also today is a country that George Washington probably wouldn't recognized, including the fact that his statues are knocked down and his, uh, names of buildings in schools. Probably good choice. Washington Jimmy. I thought you were going to talk about charity and in the U. S and goodwill to tell me about that America America is a very charitable nation. It's given up its blood in this treasure inside this country and around the world, and it's a country that is a magnet for the whole world. They want to come here. But at a certain point, you know, we have so many people unemployed, underemployed and people don't realize when you say illegal immigration. It's not just a wall down on the southern border people who have visas that expire inside this country. So what I'm calling for is illegal immigration stopped cold. Right? So it's time out on legal immigration. I think I think we are. I think we all agree with that. Give me and good for you for raising that, But I just want to point this out. The American people give 8% of their national income every year to charity. Okay, the French people give 1% The Germans give 1% The British give 2%. We are the only country in the world that gives anything close to 8% of our personal income to charity. We have the most charitable, caring goodwill nation in the world. People in Europe would say you got it wrong. We have higher taxes, and we give them more government benefits. But that's the whole point, isn't it? To get help in Europe. You have to depend on the government to get help in America. You have to depend on your fellow Americans, and that's why we kill all diseases First. That's why we have the shots and vaccines before anyone else does, because the American people are paying for it not in their taxes, but in their voluntary charitable personal contributions. Now, I was making a point earlier that one of the college was kind enough to tell me that his wife is a legal immigrant and celebrates being an American and and Thanks God every day that she has won, and that was very moving. And I mentioned that that that's why legal immigrants are increasingly voting Republican. That's why Trump gained eight points among them and David and Passaic has an interesting thought about that. Tell me, David, uh, Thank you for having me on exactly what you're saying. My parents were Holocaust survivors. They left Russia with three little kids. There we go through six different countries to get to America. Me and my brothers. All professionals now and this is the greatest country in the world. Where people who are naturalised citizens are the most patriotic probably also, like you said Republican Then you have this Democratic party. We have Ellen Omar and Rashida to leap. Who hate this country. Yep. Now the kids in this country are brainwashed. Yep. And the America I mean, let me tell you a story. David. David, let me tell you a story. Uh, I was working for Trump on July 4th of last year. And, um I suggested to him that the anti American sentiment being invented by Antifa and BLM in all of these riots needed reputation, and I suggested that he go to Mount Rushmore to speak on July 4th, and he did, and he celebrated America. He even set up a monument. Park that would be dedicated, erecting statues to honor great Americans and the cause of freedom. And, um then we have the contrast with Biden, who really did nothing to celebrate your life. 40 boasted that hot dogs they were a little cheaper now and and contrast that with the spirit of love and patriotism that Donald Trump showed Now there's one country that is not very loving and not filled with goodwill and is the most evil country in the world.

In Syria's trouble: An Embattled Despot Digs In
"It's approaching ten years since the civil war in Syria began the signs of battle are all around. And this in the middle of a residential area which both sides agreed they'd stay out of. With help from Iran and Russia, and by bombing and gassing his own people wash our Assad the country's dictator have all but one. But Mr Hope of rebuilding the country's devastated economy are far from being realized. The currency is collapsing. America is continuing its sanctions. A financial crisis in neighboring Lebanon is adding to the pain. And covid nineteen it hitting the country hard. While support for Mr Assad both abroad, and within his own ranks is weakening. It seems unlikely that his grip on power will be loosened. The humanitarian situation in Syria has never been was and economic desperation is gripping the country Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. You're hearing tells women who are having to. Boil weeds. Children can eat manna scrambling over each other to get bakeries. Their queue snaking across cities for fuel is begins to run out the currency has collapsed. It indeed is Kinda. So worthless now that people are using the notes to roll cigarettes, it's a really grim situation either. I mean, we've talked about the misery in Syria several times before his is all of this, still the ringing down of of the civil war, it's absolutely the case although the has subsided, the regime has not been able to reap the fruits of that military victory. It was really hoping that this was going to be it's Year of recovery and that just hasn't happened in it that it was gonna be able to. Take the last stronghold of rebel control in the north but instead the come Tux consolidated the hold in the north and the Kurds with American support of building up a variety in the northeast on top of that you've had the Lebanese banking crisis. Was the place which Syria used for banking the banks of very choppy limited withdrawals. People can't get Dulles out the kind of value of Lebanese pants has. that. Sort of knock on effect in Syria that you've had American sanctions which have been tightening. There was a new raft of sanctions this summer on top of that, you've got covid nineteen, which is also exacerbating the pain. How? So how has the the pandemic played out in Syria. Officially, the figures were about less than two hundred deaths from covid. Nobody really believes these figures doctors are being ordered to report new near as case of death even when it's clear that it's covid nineteen, the government doesn't have the means to provide basic protection. The population has been to brutalized by the water really much more about taking further precautions. Even if they have the means, their reports of anything up to sixty percent of businesses closing down in Damascus, you're having other independent surveys research that anything to. Forty percent of the population. There may have had the virus and the kind of figures out maybe eighty times what officials are estimating the hospitals can't cope. You need to have kind of great connections to be able to get into hospitals. Say doctors a resorted to going around the streets with extreme canisters, offering of dose of oxygen to victims, and they're saying that they're inundated covert is making already dust situation far far worse and the Syrian conflict has always been one with a lot of international players I mean what about the international allies that the regime would have turned to? The regime still does have friends abroad but who still remain either. Come to the regime's aid or they weren't by Russia and Iran who regimes patrons of facing American sanctions that's limited for instance, Iran's ability to get fuel to Syria, which is one of the contributing factors behind the fuel shortage. The Syrians Gripe that the Russians could be doing an awful lot more than they are in the past they have helped supply wheat. They're continuous complaints for instance of the Russians on providing fuel to anything other than. Military. So there's a sense of the kind of the Russians could be doing more but they. Almost relish opportunity to let the regime squirmed the the weaker it becomes more dependent becomes more Moscow hopes that it might be in a position to dictate terms and all all it seems that the regime is being evermore squeezed from that. So where does that leave Mr? Then what will he do? What can he do? In many ways, his resume has proved remarkably resilient. It still functions as state is security forces still able to suppress the population and keep them in check. You've had a few protests, but there's a quickly snuffed out and his regime in many ways, it's becoming more predators used to prey on the rebels rose up against it at preyed on its opposition, and now it's preying on its own supporters. There are checkpoints across regime areas way if you want to bring trucks across, you're GonNa have a letter with you might have to pay bribes, generals and warlords attending evermore into tax farms, raising taxes for the regime and taking account. So it's kind of regime which is struggling to retain his patronage system struggling to retain its control over the economy and doing that by praying evermore on its own population. Will you say the regime is resilient I mean can continue to be on with with all of these headwinds. Do you think? Certainly. You can find businessman in Damascus today who feel that the regime is kind of more under pressure than they can remember and they really questioned whether the regime can survive. That said kind of consensus seems to be that this is a regime that will continue to fight for its own survival. No matter what. Really have nowhere else to turn matter how disgruntled they are nobody else? Is GonNa pay what salaries they get. They don't trust any post regime since they think they're going to. The victims of that and the regime itself looks as if it's happening to continue in perpetuity, you've got presidential election scheduled for December of next year will give President Bush said another seven years together with his wife Asma. They look if that grooming there eighteen year old son Hafiz takeover sometime in the future say I mean this is a regime which is going to continue to fight for survival no matter what the cost for its own population.
A tale of two direct listings
"Hello, and welcome to equity shot are quick hit on breaking news I'm Natasha Mascarenas and today joining me to talk about a tale of not one. But two direct listings on the same Damn Day is Danny Creighton. How are you Danny doing? All right this is exciting. You know we went from a world of no direct listings to an occasional direct listening to multiple direct listings in the same day. So it's an exciting exciting morning. We can finally stop breaking up spotify in slack whenever we say the L word and reinvention Asana, and pollen tear, which are the two news heads we got today it's zoo of curiosities. But lots of great stuff to talk about where where do you WanNa start you WANNA. Start with Asana or palate here. What's more interesting to you I think I have to start with pollen tear and my big question is you've been tracking it through every. You know crazy filing, your high level thought was this a successful debut on the Stock Market for? Today I think it's a definitely a success. You know the stock from January two, thousand, nineteen onwards trading at around five to five, fifty, a share, and then in the last two or three months that price jumped to about nine dollars and sixteen cents as of September first, and so you know when when the reference price came out yesterday from the New York Stock. Exchange which was quoted at seven dollars and twenty five cents. A lot of people were like, wow, that's like a significant drop from nine sixteen like what happened particularly also last week we had the Wall Street Journal reporting they were looking for a ten dollar referenced price. You know none of those numbers were really good but look it's trading. Now it's live as we're. Doing the show, it's ten dollars and sixty one cents a share I'm. So it's better than all the numbers we heard before and it's up fifty percent on day one. So so part of me feels like this reference value was actually chosen precisely to give it a pop on day one you know if they were targeting ten bucks on Day One, this is sort of what they got and so a little bit of a lower reference price might have given them a little bit more of A. Psychological boost on on day one. So I, I think overall to success. Do you. Can you talk me a little bit about how we're trying to value the company right now I feel like I'm seeing a bunch of different numbers out there. Do we have an understanding of its fully diluted market value? We do there's still a little bit abate mostly because Peletier gives multiple numbers for the number of care. So it gives us one point six, billion shares outstanding two point one fully diluted two point one billion fully diluted than two point five billion fully fully fully diluted and so. I would say that its current share price, we would call it around twenty, four, billion in evaluation, which is an uptick from its its last rounds. Again at you know for a seventeen year old company to have the sort of strong debut on Wall Street I think it's pretty good. All things considered. Okay. Cool. I'll put a pin in Pailin tear, but I do want to talk about their lock-up period later, run me through Asana numbers I. saw it opened at a five point two billion value. Yes it's on a similar story. So yesterday, The New York Stock Exchange released a reference value of twenty one bucks per share. It zoomed straight out onto the public market. So it debuted, it's currently sitting at twenty eight dollars a share up thirty three percent on day one so far it's up to about I. Think it peaked at five point, two billion, and as of now is more like three point five, three point seven, five, billion market CAP. But again, that's actually significantly higher than his last valuation, which was an inlet late twenty, eighteen around one and A. Half billion dollars so either oke across the board I think both of these issues you know there's always a lot of risk drake listings. As you pointed out Natasha there haven't been that many is this sort of a novel mechanism. They're still a little bit unclear and exactly how they work, and so it's great to see again similar to slack spotify you know these are two enterprise. Companies to again totally different from the more consumer is random companies particularly spotify, which has tens of millions of consumers who might be retail investors buying into the stock. Most people haven't used the Sauna and certainly must people haven't used Pailin tear and so to see the kind of strength on the markets and the first day is is enticing for other companies considering the direct listing model. Right There I feel like pollen tears total customer base was what one? Hundred Fifty, company, hundred, twenty-five customers. That's a lot of customers Doing Gospel distanced. Something it's probably my favorite statistic about the company and I think I saw Dan Prime tweeting the other day that you know it's no longer going to be a secret of company. So we can stop calling it as such. This is the end of that right that confrontation about pollen tear for. So long we've been having well I, I will say. This about an hour ago. So may not be true today. A ASANA has an investor relations page like a standard like every company who publicly trades Peletier does not like it actually does not have as as of an hour ago that I looked up I could not find an investor relations page for here, which which tells you everything you need to know about the company I, feel like that is like in a beautiful one sentence or describes his relationship with investors, but but I think you're absolutely right you. Know despite the fact that only one, hundred, twenty, five customers despite the fact that took seventeen years three hundred grew it's growing from seven hundred, forty, three, million in revenue last year in fiscal year twenty, nineteen, it gave a revenue projection for twenty twenty about one point, five, billion to it's a growth company. It's SAS more and more SAS today than it was in the past where it was more services driven. So again, it's a positive story despite all the kerfuffle around its governance the last couple weeks do you Do you feel like the direct listing method might now take on more popularity. I. Mean. Maybe in some way, but can we even is? Is it enough of a success? You'd think that other companies might follow suit now that it's not just spotify that that did this. I think the more the merrier right I think Palentinian particular raised capital round back in. July right which was sort of what I was told from some insiders essentially the IPO that was the IPO and then direct listings just the actual market exchange. So I think we're GONNA see more companies taking this approach of bifurcating the capital, raise the float that you would normally do a IPO and just the actual just GonNa Start. Trading today and you know I think that that allows you more time to create the right narrative the right story of and also separates what is a a pretty intense kind of crisis driven process the road show getting the company ready the SEC filings separating out at out you don't put all your eggs in one basket. You can do it in stages and I think more and more companies undertake that approach going forward. My question to is and I'm sure our listeners are curious is with all direct listings. There's no shares offered by the company when the when it debuts and so when we see these prices I, guess how much of them are they vanity metrics much of their HABITA- goals, how important are they for us to care about and think about? I wanted to be precise. So there are no new shares offered by the company. So there's no dilutive in an IPO generally have fifteen, maybe twenty percent new shares offered to the public. There are no new shares but many of the insiders have to pay taxes capital gains they actually do have to sell shares. So you know so far this morning already thirty five, million shares of have already been traded and We have on Pailin tear thirty, two, hundred, and thirty million. Shares sold today, right? So already, there's a market, there's clearly tens of millions of shares being sold. So these prices are real or Israel as any other IPO in which people are you know figuring out what's going to happen? You know the next checkpoint for both of these companies is gonNA come in a couple of weeks when they report their next quarterly earnings and I think by then you'll start to see the analysts get comfortable the companies understand the next steps and what's happening after. And you're speaking with Dustin Moskovitz later today the founder of Asana. So any questions on that? You can kind of tease out right now. Well, I was told. The pure folks. About our stock imagery because apparently no longer has sideburns to. Join, the Line of people that complain but it's like you know there's the old line about taking a haircut. Up Thirty, five percents of they actually gained hair on the market today speak. Clearly. sideburns maybe somewhere else. But? No I. THINK WE'RE GONNA be really interested because some unique company in which its founders, Dustin Moskovitz who Justin Rosenstein, who both met each other at facebook actually majority of the company outright right. We just never see or very rarely see tech companies where the founding to CEO's and and COO own like outright majority like not just a majority of the voting because of class, a class B shares but they just outright own about thirty two percent of the company I believe doesn't owns thirty six. Percent of the company outright and just knowns around sixteen point, one percent and so to me like I'm just curious because it's just a different path for a company it was a slower growth company capital much more efficiently grew much more methodically and the founders sort of maintained ownership over time in a way that most other founders do not think the other. The other thing to put out here is Asana has no lockup though the similar to spotify Ed to black as listing all the shares are available for trade to anyone. Who any insider anyone who owns a share of on this morning can put it on the market and sell it Here is the complete opposite pallares pioneering this new kind of fusion of the IPO and the direct listing one would argue maybe the worst of both of those processes but actually a direct listing with a lockup and so only roughly twenty eight to twenty nine percent of pollen. Tear shares are even available for sale at all with the rest in lockup and market standoff agreements that will expire over. The next calendar year. So you know there's a lot more to wait on right. There's not as much liquidity with Pallares could actually harm the stock price. They might be a little bit inflated right now because there's limited number of shares available for trade, we'll have to watch and see but again, it'll be interesting to see if other companies start to do a directing the lockup because clearly Palin tear has not suffered tremendously using this model. So again, another tool in the tool chest and uber do something similar with lock-up period. mean. They did like all IPO's. Underwriter from a bank, they have lockups in place mostly to make sure that there's not a mass rush to the exit. They don't want hundreds of millions of shares at any price willing to be sold. They WANNA, kinda manager coming out because they're putting oftentimes their own money up through the green shoe at stake, and so again, that's what made direct listings unique is that there wasn't this lockup employees are free to do on day one through whatever they don't have to wait six months as is customary. So again, we'll see kind of where the the system lies in the future. As you know, the New York Stock Exchange also got approval to do a direct. Listening with a capital fundraise so we've gone from this world of like there's an IPO and that's the only way to go public to. You can do a direct listing, a direct listening with a lockup, a direct listening without lockup address listening lock-up in a capital fundraise like you can do anything you want. You know it's it's the it's the Netflix of going public. So to speak I, see the headline now airbnb goes public through a through a pollen tear style direct listing. It's just going to happen and it's going to be horrible but we will be back here to talk about it as always every shareholder gets a free party house for one night so. That'll be the new innovation going on there, but but that's a sonnet that is Pelham Tear Ford they an and we'll have more to come in the next week.

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads
"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen

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
