Why Candour Is Essential To Growth

"If in your team meetings, you don't get opposing arguments, disagreements or different point of views than you should be worried. This means people are just not being honest or not being candid in these meetings saying what they really believe or mean or feel about a certain topic. Just. Think about relationships. You're part of where there's always open honesty whether it's a best friend with a Sierra, your sibling maybe your partner in life. How long do you last without disagreeing on something? Very long maybe a day or two and disagreement and different opinions is not a bad thing especially in a company. One of the things that we really talk about an our company what better Ninja and the hundred dollars va is that we encourage disagreement we celebrate our differences and different opinions because that's how you come up with creative solutions but we always do it with respect. We always do with the right tone what we do and make sure that people understand that we're all trying to achieve. The same thing and in the discussion and disagreement were coming up with a solution together. No one believes they have the right answer or the right solution. They believe that we can do this together but it doesn't happen if everybody's like Yep that sounds great and we move on and no one really opens up an honestly says what they think this is so important because your product, your service, your whatever you're offering your customers will never improve if it's not criticize if it's not being met with honesty. You WanNa get to a place where when you meet with your team when you discuss matters. People can say things honestly with a smile on their face, they know that they're not going to be reprimanded. They know that they're doing it respectfully and they know this for the better good of the company you as a leader and everybody else in your team needs to be receptive to that a lot of us US founders of companies. It's hard to hear criticism because we put our. Blood sweat and tears to get to the point where we can hire teammates. So when somebody kind of picks on her baby, we feel a little defensive and that's natural. But you gotta fight that urge you got to understand that that criticism honesty that honest opinion whether you agree with or not whether you think you're GonNa go with that direction or not is helpful in producing better results. Things I learned recently is at Pixar. When they lost their first major movie story actually spent five years creating this film. And it's not because it took five years to actually produce one draft. They had hundreds of drafts. They had so many integrations and interrelation process only happened because they had a culture of candor that a culture where people were honest and really said, you know what? This is not what it could be. It's up the best version of the movie I don't like the way. This feels like this looks. Let's come up with some solutions. So how do you actually do this in your meetings in your team one is you simply praise honesty openness and even criticism. So when somebody says I don't think we should do this. We should do that I don't think that's right. I. Don't know why but I feel like we should go this direction when somebody makes statements like that your job as a leader is to reinforce that behavior by saying thanks for saying that. Thanks for. Bringing that up we need this so that we can figure out if we're doing the right thing or not. If moving the right direction or not what do you guys think about that and you open it up for the rest of the of the team members on that call on that meeting to kind of say I agree or maybe I don't or I think this this shows that you're welcoming honesty you're welcoming this and it's not shot down and you're not being defensive. And it helps with innovation. The other things that don't have hard and fast rules when it comes to honesty or speaking up many people say, Hey, don't say anything unless you have a solution, don't point out problems unless you actually know how to solve that problem where you're going to present a possible solution. That's always a good kind of rule to live by in a company in a business especially when you're trying to create something exceptional for your customers, it's okay for somebody to say. The something about this feature the something about this page on the website there's something about the way we're wording this headline that doesn't feel right I'm not sure what it is, but it just doesn't feel perfect. Solution, but they're pointing out something that is kind of registering in them. Your response needs to be at the moment. Well, thanks for bringing that up. Let's explore. Why do you feel that way does anybody else feel this way? What are some things that we can do to kind of change the way you feel about that? What are some possible solutions? Let's work together it's not the responsibility of the person bringing up the problem to come up with a solution It'd be great if they have some suggestions, but they don't it's still valid and as a team, you can come up with the solution. Another strategy, I recommend it to let your team members explore and experience being candid being honest. With you and the team i. let them have a few goes at it before you unleash your candor. And of course, when you do, we always do respect and we always do it with the intention of trying to make the business better. A lot of people say, hey, wherever cultural candor here on addition house you've got to be ready to take. No you should be sensitive to the fact that this is maybe not the environment they're used to from the past employer. So get them used to it by them going I a little bit because lot easier to be candidate than to receive candid information some time or candidate opinions. And then once they kind of get the hang of it. Then you can kind of say, Hey, this is my honest opinion about this

How Coco Illustrator Ana Ramrez Gonzlez Extends Herself with Her Art

"I if I opened up one of your notebooks from Grade School and high school, how much doodling what I find in the margins You know not that much. I didn't use to draw growing up because I was a figure ice skater in ice skated competitively since I was six up until I was like fifteen or something. Then my mom was like when you take drying class I'm so happy that she did in so glad that they would even suggest art school for me in high school actually she kinda almost forced me to take drawing class or against my will almost but she was just tried out if you don't like it, you don't have to go back you know but please give it a try like I. Think you might like it. In. So she drove me to like my first drawing class in. But then I like looked it like after the first session as this is rules is the best like this is what I wanna do for. I didn't actually start drawing until I was maybe seventeen or sixteen, seventeen or something. When did you first decide to move to the states? So my mom has a cousin who lives. In Chicago who you know she was like, Hey, like can she go live with you? Here. So my aunt was in angel and she took me in for a year in lived in Chicago, and you know that exposed me to a lot like it was kind of a huge cultural clash for me because I grew up. You know kind of sheltered in you know in my small community in new everybody there and it was just for a year but it I think it really shaped. My view. On things in. My world in. So after that I went back to Mexico and then I found you know started doing research once I started taking drawing classes in my my sister's best friend from childhood who's also my friend his name alone. So he was studying at CAL arts at the time in La in. California. So I met up with alone. So that summer. And it was the summer before I graduated high school and he showed me his portfolio that he applied with in I just like I was like I have to do this in like. This college I was like I have to go to the school in an a very stubborn person in sort of obsessive sometimes when it comes to like things that are really WanNa to do and I applied that year but I didn't get in. So then I moved to France in when there for like two years. In. It really helped me to start building my portfolio for Callard's because in my mom in my dad's head, I was just going to stay in France in I was going to graduate there but I, was still like no have to go to cal arts 'cause that's my dream. My Dad was really worried when I applied to the school again because I think they also didn't really think that I would get when I re applied. Again, after two years of the first time I got rejected I did get in and I had such a good time and it was magical. So I mostly decided to move to the US because I just really wanted to go to the school in that was like the main reason in the drive for me to come here in because I loved animation and Film Industries here. But Oh, my family's still in Mexico is just me here. How did you land that first job after school? My first job. So it was actually during school because at Keller, it's A day per full day in its day in Wedge. A lot of people from the industry from the animation industry, go to the school look at our work. So there's like tables laid out in the main gallery in like students from first to fourth year plus like after you graduate, there's also space for them. We learned stressful. I knew so stressful it's Yeah. It's very like nerve wracking in like really exciting to because everyone's working towards that so. That year my mom was visiting 'cause she. She came up to visit me in and she was staying with me in I stayed up like I pulled an all nighter she stayed up with me the day before printing stuff out in laying out my portfolio decorating it. So we laid them out on these tables. In this was my third year and I went in the morning you lay them out at like a eight. Am you leave them there in the new leaf like you're not even present to show your work like you disappear, and then there's like this blackboard at the end of the hallway with you know the lists of every studio that's attending and you know like three hours later they write the names of the people they WanNa talk to. Based on like what they think about that work, I had never been called by Pixar or anything like I was not targeting Pixar at all because I'm like how like you know it just was not in my raider 'cause they were incredible. So as like whatever I just want an internship anywhere. Or A job. I went back to my house with my mom and we both kind of fell asleep for that time because we were so tired and then I got a call from a roommate who was at school and she was like, Oh, my God on a you have to get here right away like come here. Your name is under the picks list in I was like what no way I. Remember like jumping around with my mom. In we went to the school in like indeed, my name was on the list in the talk to Harley Jessup who production designed cocoa. And he was doing the interviews like himself site talked to him and he was like Oh I love your portfolio like it seems like you really love drying from like different cultures and you know I love how you're like units. So Colorful Blah Blah Blah in his guest, send us your portfolio and we'll get back to you and actually my mom took a photo of that list of the portfolio list. And she sent it to me every once in awhile and she's like remember We're like my name It's very sweet. Yeah. But then eventually they got back to me and they called and I was I happened to be touring Disney imagineering that day 'cause I was elected with a group of other students to go pitch stuff to imagine years, which was super cool and I was on that tour with my friends and then that day I found out they called me in there. Yeah. You would just want to let you know you got the internship end. I graduated college I didn't have a job I applied to like fifteen jobs or so and didn't get any of them until eventually I got one in I worked there for a little bit but then they weren't. Willing to sponsor me because I know it's not easy for everybody. So I left because I'm like. Well, what am I doing here? You know it's not for the money as much as like I also really need. To get sponsored so I can stay in the country. So I left and then I kept applying to jobs in the landed a job with Google doodles with Google in started freelancing for them and doing you know Google doodles rely Mexican Independence Day and then we were like in Having starting a conversation of potentially converting me to like full-time in stuff in has very excited about that.

Disney Pixar Acquisition: What did we learn?

"Pharma. But the picture, the Pixar deal is really interesting. The cornered Resource Hamilton kind defines it as like what is something. It's not just one person, but what's what is some resource that this corporation has access to uniquely that nobody else could competitively come arbitrage and higher away in the case of a person, and for Pixar it was the brain trust right, and it wasn't just Ed and John it was. Was the two of them and the collective culture around all the directors picks are and what they were able to accomplish in the creative process, and so I think Disney masterfully handled this where the intimidated by Bagger getting the acquisition to a big reason it happened was he said two to head headed John and Steve Jobs to you. We want you to come. Takeover Disney animation in addition to Pixar. That we realized the brain trust is what is medical. What is the power here and so not only are you gonNA keep it. We're GONNA expand bobbies, the analogy of the canvas that you get to paint on which is perfect for that for that deal. Yeah, last like. So funny of. The other big thing that dictates this is leverage so. I think most of the folks listening to your show. Jeff is like. Many of them are. Software engineers they may have sold. A company at some point and saying things like it took ten days for Disney to get a deal done with Pixar or took the weekend to buy instagram. If they've ever sold their company, they're like what you. That was a six month. Awful, awful process and thank. That is largely the case when the big companies got. Time on their side, the startup usually is either running out of money or has to make a call at some point soon. Do we need to fundraise very sell? It's hard to get multiple bidders looking at you, and so it's it's really rare scenario where a company actually has enough the acquire e actually has enough leverage to force deal to get done and to force a bidding war and I think most of the. The time when it looks like as you know, your sponsor needs to the deal sponsor on the acquiring side needs to carefully use their political capital and bill decks and build models and make pitches internally and stake their career on getting it done, and that just as many month process that gets expensive. It has lawyers, and so that to me is also a big factor in sort of

"Pixar shorts. I don't know if you saw like kit bull or loop or any of the little shorts that have come out from Disney. That have been really really cute.

It's like a nine minute short. It's so cute. It's on Disney. Plus it just came out this past week and it's not what I thought it was going to be. But it's also really great The lumberjack song from Monty Python. But but it was the first time I've really seen Disney do something so straightforward. Whether like. Yeah they they actually go out hiding in my a pixar animated. It's think it's the right questions to damage Tom. Brokaw's legit thing. I was going to say this. You know again me being like the Big Disney skeptic. I always found that. They are very Calculatedly woke and they like to things when they feel like.

Let's talk about one aspect of Plata pod. That's become very very cool if you think about it whether it's the Max or the ultra once you've got the base. It's kind of a blank canvas to do anything you want. What and I was looking at some of the things the other day and seeing some of the images on the instagram page that that Plateau pod shares and on the blog That are that are being shared. And it's very cool because everybody is taking things like the goose necks with additional lighting or changing up the kind of ball. They're using more. We've got that that I love that little square jellyfish phone holder. Because I've used that on an ultra of myself and while you could go out and you could get if you wanted something. Just hold your phone. They're a dime a dozen everywhere. But when you talk about putting the square jellyfish on Your Planet Pot and then you Wanna be able to do other things with it in terms of recording with your phone It it just changes the diversity of the product which would which are some of your favorite accessories. You know it's I. I love the goose next and I have to add by the way you know. We all have extra time right now with with everything going on with pandemic and it's the perfect time to experiment and explore with your style and creative projects and it's just very very cool and so I'm loving playing with goose necks and I mean just looking at stuff. That people are posting it so inspiring. You mentioned the blog. We've got toy photography up there. We've got Frozen FRUIT OF FROZEN FRUIT TO`real freezing fruit and getting really cool artistic shots. Someone else posted about. They were capturing images of their city from their car like not even leaving their car and the platypus helping with that. It's just it's very cool the different things that you can do and especially with the accessories available now well right now and you said it. We've all got. We've all got time so being able to play with this stuff and go from from a macro to anything with your cell phone and tie it all in together it just becomes one of these really diverse little tools that you've got to play with and it takes up no room and I don't want to turn this into more of an infomercial but you and I are both for for our listeners. Shamir and I are both involved in working on different plateau pod projects but were involved because we believe in the in the product and especially especially Larry doctor Dr t who is the founder and was down a looking for new application. So and here we go. Let's talk about today's guest. Let's get to it. We've got Sherry Hager. Men in the House and my friendship was Sherry. Our friendship is testimonial to an industry. That we all loved dearly. Sherri is an award-winning very successful. Winning and portrait photographer. But these days she's best known for a much bigger role and that's founder of Click on now just to give you some history on Sherri Sherri and I met I think it was either two thousand nine or two thousand ten when she attended skip summer school and that was a workshop series. I was doing that. Went all the way through two thousand thirteen. We've been involved in numerous projects. We spoke at different conferences together. Sherry and her husband. Jeremy and Sheila and I have all been out to dinner together. I love working with her and I especially love working with her team on. Click con- now click. Con- kicked off last summer with their first annual event Chicago. They broke all records with. I mean they just had this incredibly diverse educational and trade show event and it was amazing because you could feel the electricity in the air and I know that sounds Kinda. Hokey and sappy. But sometimes you go to a conference where it's kind of flat like a soda. That's spent left open all day long. It's got color. It's got flavor but no phys while this one had phys had a little of everything and people were so excited to be there. This year click on was scheduled to start About a month and a half August eleven so actually no. It's about two months away but like everything in our lives. The pandemic changed all of that. Now here's the cool thing team. Click con- isn't going to slow down so while this year show has been postponed to August tenth. Twenty twenty one. They're launching click con- nation on the same day that this you show was supposed to start August eleventh. The pandemic may have changed everything in our lives but moving to online couldn't be more perfect for the management team also known as the heart of Click on. So we're going to talk about education. We're GONNA talk about expanding your skill set. The challenge is building your business back in today's in in today's environment and who knows what else will come up on the PODCAST and I know I've gone a little bit too long. But it's hard not to do when you've gotta guess that you know so well so Sherry. Welcome to beyond technique. Hi. I'm really excited to be here today. And talk to your listeners and give them some good information call. We are so excited to have you. Thank you is on you now. Good information. Wow we have a lot I think between the three of us we can really figure out some good stuff here for sure for sure and you know. Let's start with our favorite first question. Just our listeners can get to know you a bit more. Tell us about yourself. Share your background and how you ended up doing what you're doing today. Well my goodness we're going really far back now so I started a while. I've been doing photography since I was six years old had a little. I don't know if you guys remember those Kodak. One ten cameras. I got one of those for my birthday but I didn't really ever take photography serious until I was out of college during college. I had taken a ton of photography courses because I loved it. I got my first real. Dsl are when. I was eighteen for graduation from high school graduation and When I graduated college I was actually going to become a Animation artists and work on movies Lake Toy Story and things like that for Pixar But I ended up shooting. Somebody's wedding and I fell in love with it so I became a wedding photographer. Spent about sixteen years now. But I've been doing that and I absolutely love it. I had a hard time coming out of the gate. Which skipped can attest to. And that's how I met skip. I actually attended skipped summer. School in That's pretty much. What gave me my left or my push and also really gave me the wants to educate other people so I think skipped summer. School is really where the photography part of it came out where I started catching on to pricing myself. Right and doing things right as well as wanting to get back to the community so both of them actually started right there with with his show that he had had But yes sixteen years. I'm number two in the. Us number one in the Midwest and Voted number six in the world.

Why not Fandom? The Random Dude Josh

"Josh what is your Phantom five all right so we're GONNA kick this off with just indie comics in general and the reason why I've selected. That is one. We don't have to worry about continuity within Deco X. because any book it's creating its own universe so what about like the walking dead that had what three hundred ish episodes or issues that was released. I mean they create their own continuity right the the do they do so. But if you compare it to say and I'm going to reference the big to DC and marvel where there's always continuity issues across the board and you don't necessarily have to do that Just some of the books that I've been geeking out over lately Morgan's organs. Which did you ever watch the movie inside out? Yes yeah the Pixar movie about all the all the emotions. Yes so that taking that concept. Except it's the organs within Morgan. They have their own personality. Now I will note. This is not necessarily a kid from the book. While you have Brian the brain and pepe the I'll I'll just let your mind. Yeah another a couple of easy to it yes exactly yes But it's it's hilarious absolutely hilarious. You've got Franklin and ghost who you know these two characters again out so much kid-friendly one but The Creator who has created this universe. Gary Gun has these amazing characters with amazing writing and with this universe. He's also created the war war coins combat UNICORNS for higher and that's awesome combat UNICORNS for higher. I mean who doesn't want fighting UNICORNS and the fact that he's got all these books. Yeah he's he's well all these together so it's fantastic but he's kind of his own comic universe with this he has and it. It's absolutely amazing. Absolutely amazing at you know. There's their studios like upshots studios. Who have just recently come out with a whole new line of books. And it's not your stereotypical Superhero Bucks. So so if somebody is used to reading the stereotypical superhero books now. What would be a good indicator comic for them to bridge them over into the world of India because Indy Comics are great? Because there's no one telling you what you can and can't have but that also means that there are things that people who've who've just read the big two publishers. Their entire lives are not going to be prepared for to see on the on the pages of their comic book. Is there something that you would recommend? Jump from Marvel and DC. I mean one of the big ones just comes to mind spun off yeah the Todd McFarlane Yep which his kickstarter I don't know if you've noticed He's doing a kickstarter right. Now for the seven inch figure like our revised version of what he made back in ninety five in the first two days made over a million dollars on kickstarter. It's kind of Nice to have the celebrity that todd McFarlane has to promote things like that. Yeah well instead of going to retailers for this he's making this specifically for the consumer so some years ago I was able to ask Stan Lee in. He would work with a modern artist. What artist would he want to write the story for Spiderman for asked Specifically Spiderman? Because that's right right now and his response was todd McFarlane so so I mean yeah it was a Stanley Todd McFarlane story would probably be kinda crazy but the yeah but I mean just those sorts of things but I guess going back to the question on a bloodshot by which I mean. They're just released. The movie with Vin diesel playing and because of the current cove nineteen lockdown. They made it available online. So the studio upshot. They put all their comics online They've got one where it's called the resistance which really made things real because a virus play the earth and out of it came people with superpowers. Signed me in little ironic. Well are you saying that? Are you breaking some news here? That people are getting superpowers from this. I'm guessing not but I can neither confirm nor deny this all

Dividend Cuts, Drone Deliveries, and Disney Plus

"Happy Monday. I'll believe you if you say it's Monday. They all do together as we have discussed before it's Day I know it's Day and I think it's not weekend. That's that's how I measure the days now not weekend day night. Three categories so Dan. Let's talk some. Gm less toxic dividends less toxic drones and as we wrap things up. Let's talk about something that you just wrote about Disney plus in whether or not it can save Disney stock but let's begin with the market now at the time of our taping here midday Monday all the major indices up slightly in this as part of a month Dan. This has just been an incredible month for the Dow. Snp THE NASDAQ ALL UP. Big having their best month in years so I want to start there as an investor. Are You thinking about this market? Because we have the market just chugging along this month and at the same time we have most states still under stay at home orders so I don't think about the market in the short term and right now. It's so emotional. So if there's a tiny little hint if like a village in Alabama says it's going to reopen a gym the market bounces up in and has a good day Which which I like that that there is sort of an appetite for optimism. Because we've been through such a miserable time that said I'd be looking at companies that are going to do well during this and after or companies that you really liked beforehand that you believe will bounce back when this is over. So I'm not looking to sort of ride out these trends or see what's going on or figuring out where the bottom is a. I think we've got some reckoning left to come but that's just a guess okay. So let's talk about some of those companies. Gm General Motors announcing its suspending. Its dividend and stock buybacks now shares. Gm down around forty percent for the year Dan. Gm has stopped producing cars. It has not yet announced a timeframe for when it will resume production. Gm is producing ventilators and personal protective equipment. What do you make them the GM news that it will suspend its dividends and stock buybacks? Yeah I think it's smart to preserve your cash when you're not selling any product. I understand I got some blowback on the live show from people saying Oh but you know we count on those dividends. I get it but you can't count on a dividend if a company goes bankrupt so I would rather GM stays in business longer puts itself in a situation where it has more cash long and a longer runway because eventually Americans will need cars this will end and people who were putting off a purchase will buy prices are really good so if you need a car it's actually a pretty good time to buy a car But I am in favor of taking being cautious as you can be right now. If you're a company okay. So along those lines I want to ask you about Disney. Disney has taken some heat for not suspending. Its dividend. What do you think yeah? I think it's a mistake. Look Disney's in a good position in terms of their available cash but they've also borrowed quite a bit of money. I mean. They borrowed the money for the Fox purchase. So to be paying cash. When you're not operating it seems like an artificial way to prop up your stock price. And I'm just not concerned about Disney's stock price in the short term. I'm I'm guessing. Executives are who often have bonuses tied to Stock Price? Okay well we're GONNA talk more Disney at a bit. But first I wanNA talk about a new development in the world of social distancing. Ups on Monday announcing that CVS and ups will start using drones. Yes drones next week to deliver prescription medication to the villages retirement community in Florida. Now Dan you are in Florida. The villages is the biggest retirement community in the country now. The drones will drop off prescriptions to a location near the community and a truck will finish the delivery. So this isn't door to door but this is going from. Cvs to somewhere near where people live. Yeah I mean. They've been testing this it. I think it's actually in Virginia in some rural town with the idea that you could bring prescriptions right to the door and you're gonNA see combinations of this and Robo trucks and other things delivering but the villages a unique place. These are generally stand alone homes or row houses And it's an entire community over one hundred thousand people that are all at least fifty five plus generally a lot older. So there's a lot of reason to minimize contact for these people. But I'm not entirely sure how drone to a truck to the door. Minimizes contact that. That seems to be the same amount of contact of driving the truck to the community and bringing it to the door. I it's a little strange for me but that said I think you're GONNA see Niche use of drones doing things like this drone isn't going to like bring you a Burrito and put it in your hand but it might leave your cvs box at your door or on your balcony or some other location if you live someplace. That isn't densely packed city. Okay so when you look over the next five to ten years in someone who studies the retail landscape when you look at the role of drones are you bullish or bearish. I know you say they're not gonNA be delivering burritos. But what's the role going forward? It's going to be niche. It's going to be filling. It's going to be a supplement in rural places where it doesn't make sense to send a truck it might sense and it's obviously state ver- to send drones but I don't think New York City or Alexandria. Virginia wants a sky filled with drones. That seems like a recipe for disaster. So they will be used. They will have a place but drones are much more likely to be used and are being used by say Walmart in a warehouse to take inventory. That is a much safer. It's it's it's not gonNa hit a you know a random person walking by. There's going to be a lot of commercial uses for drones but it isn't going to be to replace the Pizza Guy. Okay and no beer and wine up. Maybe some here in wine but probably I don't WanNA drone delivering a wine bottle. Have you ever had to why not if you're stairs? It's not fun now. That just seems fraught with issues. I mean I don't. I don't think you could do that. You know what daretodream dare to dream of a day and let's Talk Disney. We talked a little earlier but I want to talk about a few different developments here including something you just wrote about but first Disney today announcing big plans for May fourth now may fourth They will begin. Streaming Star Wars. The rise of skywalker. That'll be two months earlier than they planned. And then Disney also announcing that the final episode of the Clone Wars and the first episode of the mandatory and documentary will be available on May fourth so with all that in mind. You just wrote a piece this weekend. Dan Entitled Canned Disney Plus Save Disney stock. So can it. Yeah and. That's a very melodramatic headline I will. I will put out that. The goal of headlines are to get readership because I actually believe Disney. We'll be fine. It's other businesses. We'll be okay but what I want to really point out is. People are underplaying. Just how BIG DISNEY CAN BE A? When they last reported they went from ten million to fifty million subscribers that wasn't even based on corona virus growth that was based on adding a few new countries like eight or nine countries. Netflixing one hundred eighty one hundred somewhere in that ballpark. Disney plus is probably at seventy five million. Now wouldn't shock me. If in year there at one hundred twenty five one hundred fifty million and their cost structure is dramatically lower than Netflix. Netflix has to produce like two hundred series of quarter and throw them at a wall. They have to pay huge money to comedians. A Disney can pick and choose a few series based on its named intellectual property. You're GonNa Watch the new show starring one of the avengers. You're going to watch a new STAR WARS SHOW. You'RE GONNA watch when rise of skywalker is released. They don't have to spend the money. Net flicks does. This thing is going to be a cash cow quickly. Okay so I want to ask you more about that. And specifically the net flicks piece of that when you talk about their cost structure. How long can net flicks play that game? They're going to have to play that game. It lessens as they get into every market and they've localized content. They don't have the expense of having to record dialogue and new languages. They'll have some shows in each market. Eventually they're in a position where they can may be cut their contents bent in half but their content spend six to eight billion dollars a year whereas Disney pretty much everything Disney puts out on Disney. Plus that's original to the service is going to be a guaranteed hit when when you're watching a show in the Star Wars universe. It is not a big surprise that star wars fans. Watch it So Disney is really in a position where they can keep costs under control there also in a position where they can raise the price pretty easily six ninety nine a month. That's a great introductory price. But do you really think families are going to drop it if it goes to nine ninety nine over the course of the next three years Netflix too. I think can go up to about nineteen ninety nine and that will help some of their deficit but these are the two winners in the space and for Disney this is going to be its biggest segment. Maybe as soon as as well this year it'll probably be its biggest segment because others are closed but in a normal year this will be Disney's biggest segment if not in two thousand twenty one possibly almost certainly by two thousand twenty two and Dan Netflix. Still growing like a weed for the last quarter. They added almost sixteen million subscribers. So one hundred eighty three million subscribers now for Netflix When you look in as we're talking here we're talking about Disney on Netflix. Do you think there's room for both Disney plus and Net flicks to succeed over the next five to ten years or if this were wrestling is essentially a cage match. Were only one of them. Comes OUT ALIVE? No these two already one. It's a case of whether there's a market for HBO Max and Peacock and all the other services out there. Those are going to be harder cells but remember as people cut the cord and they're still eighty something million Americans who pay for cable. That's a hundred to two hundred dollars comes available to some of those people already have netflixing Disney plus so they'll probably dabble in ad one or two secondary services. But I think right now. This is a battle for the bronze medal. I if somebody can establish themselves in third place. That's a strong position to be in. I'm SORTA not counting. Who which is a Disney owned property because who was gonNA get bondholders by a lot of people with Disney plus and it's probably going to do reasonably well and be a driver for Disney. There's not a of original content being produced on on who so it's not that biggest spend But Yeah Disney a net flicks have have already lapped everybody. What about Amazon? Should we include them in the Disney Net flicks discussion? How many shows do you watch Amazon? you know we. I think we we watch a fair amount on Amazon prime. I think really I forget it exists Amazon is the Ebay of streaming services. How you know you forget. They exist and a lot of stuff. That's really hyped. When you actually dig into the research and find out how many people are watching it. It's like three hundred thousand people and they have some shows I've been interested in. I hear good things about the boys. I think that's what it's called and generally I've tried a few things on Amazon and nothing has struck. You're not paying for it. I don't precisely see where it's a particularly big value add. Would you cancel prime if they got Yeah No. I'm not cancelling prime. Yeah it makes no sense to cancel prime because right now. I don't know I'm delivering getting deliveries from. I was like four times a day. Like that's I think of something. I go in and put an Amazon Order. And now you have this fun. Amazon of will show up as opposed to previously when it would come the next day so I just don't think it's a relevant service. I don't precisely understand why they pay for it. Frankly okay okay so. I'm going to count you skeptical of. Do you have a Netflix? Or Disney plus recommendation for me. Well if you haven't watched the mandatory and you should absolutely watch the delorean oriented so right that I also on Netflix. This is a bit of a sleeper but I really liked glow It's based on the eighties women's wrestling group very very campy. The original show actually a little dark and vicious really well done. It's one of those things where you could say. Well I'm not a pro wrestling fan. It's not really about wrestling. It's about the relationships between the people And my wife didn't like it so that that's I would say women would like it but in case of my life that wasn't true and my wife really really really likes ozark and I have not been able to make myself watch it yet. Okay Good Ozark and glow there you go okay for our desert poll as we wrap up here over the next five years. You're on a desert island and you have to you have to buy one of these stocks and hold it. So let's go. Gm Disney net flex. Let's throw in. Cvs and UPS Disney without a shadow of a doubt. Cvs would be attractive if they didn't just by a health insurance company which absolutely is is something that makes me a little bit nervous but Disney has the number one theme park brand families are GonNa come back to Disney up. Whenever they put out the next Disney movies avengers Pixar or whatever it is people are going to go see those. I'm not worried about that company in the long term at all. Okay well there. You have it Dan Klein. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me

Disney+ streaming service reaches 50 million subscribers in 5 months

"Disney plus reach a milestone in the past couple of days fifty million paid subscribers did for Disney plus around the world. That is well ahead of the most optimistic projections but then again maybe there's some nuance to those numbers. Yeah I mean it's interesting. Because they put out a big press release and are justifiably ecstatic about that fifty million number especially as other parts of the Walt Disney Company including the theme park business. The movie business the crews and resorts business. Espn are all just a big dumpster. Fire this is a very big number but there are a couple caveats. Mean eight million of those subscribers are coming from hot star in India which was a Fox pay-tv asset and is now in the Disney conglomerate. And that's a tear that comes with Disney plus so it's not exactly a huge resounding success in India and a lot of those subscribers in the. Us are coming from verizon which did a big deal with Disney to offer verizon customers a free subscription but this is a big number regardless and it's a testament to the brand Disney brand is gigantic. People are stuck indoors there with their kids and they are subscribing. Yeah they are hurrying up some things you know. They put frozen to on Disney plus faster than it normally would be if we were in the world where it goes from theaters to on demand to different. You know windows. They moved onward the Pixar film there and this artemis fowl film also moving onto Disney plus onward after a short theatrical release that was curtailed by the pandemic and Artemis Fowl. Not at all you know and these movies we've talked about. How on demand doesn't necessarily help so they don't make as much money by any means they might do even from so-so theatrical release. You know some people have said in the case of those films onward and Artemis Fowl and Universal. The same thing in terms of trolls which was quickly moved into the on demand space. You know if the student doesn't have a ton of confidence this is what they do if they think well. It wouldn't have been a huge. Hit The optically. This is what they do so it seems like this is what Disney plus. Yeah and I think we're GONNA see more of that as we go forward especially if these stay at home mortars stay into effect into the summer you're going to see such a demand for a at home content that you're gonNA see more and more of these streaming services take Take their windows from other places and put things on there but you know the Disney thing is very interesting because compared to a lot of the other services there isn't as much new content going onto Disney plus in especially net flicks and even Amazon and Hulu. There's new stuff. They're pretty much every week yet with Disney. Plus it's relying still on mostly that library content. And yes there are originals. And there's new stuff they just put a simpsons movie up this week and they've got other things that are coming but it really just is a testament to the power of that Disney Library and how powerful that is for families with children who are at home right now and that seven dollar price point is pretty good. Although that can't be sustained indefinitely thank you that

Overcoming Perfectionism in Podcasting

The Audacity to Podcast

Overcoming Perfectionism in Podcasting

"So in no particular order. Here are my thoughts. I your audience needs you. If you've been podcasting for even a little while your audience has probably come to expect. Something from your podcast. You're delivering on some kind of promise that you've set in the beginning whether that's inspirational educational entertaining. Whatever it is and your audience can build your podcast into their lives as you might have built the audacity to podcast into your life when I was consistent with the show and right now I'm recording this during the covert Nineteen House arrests that everyone feels like they're under right now. Some places are more locked down than others but regardless of current events. Your audience does need you now. Maybe they need you even more than ever before. Especially if your podcast can be some kind of distraction for them and for me right now. This is something that was actually motivating to me. Because I realize that you might depend on this podcast for some inspiration for some extra inspiration in extra education. I know there are many other podcast about podcasting out there in very many good ones. I listened to several of them. And I also know that. The audacity to podcast has certain uniqueness to it that make it stand out from the others or make it different from the other podcast about podcasting. And you might need that. You might just want to hear from me. Maybe you like my style of teaching. Maybe like my humor when I slip in here and there but I have to. Remind myself that. In order to accomplish one of the founding goals of this podcast the audacity to podcast to give you the audacity to podcast that means. I need to get my own audacity in check and get it going. You need me. Your audience needs you. And I don't save both of those things as a statement of pride or to say that I'm so amazing. Or that your so amazing or anything like that nothing to make us feel more prideful about ourselves or more about ourselves than we should feel but to remind. You can't myself that. Yes either people need us and they want us and this goes into the next reminder people like you. They do like you in the words of the fictional motivational speaker. Stuart Smalley. I'm good enough. I'm smart enough and Doggone it people like me. Yes people do like you. Sometimes it may feel like a especially around. There's times when you get a negative podcast review. It may feel like Oh man. Why do I continue? This people hate me. They don't like me. I'm not good enough. I'm not smart enough and Doggone it people just don't like no. That's not true people do like you. People do like me maybe like me. I hope you like me. Maybe you don't like maybe you hate. Listen to the PODCAST. I don't know for sure. I hope that you like me but it is important to remember that. Yes people do like you. They do value you. They value what you have to say when I started the audacity to pump gas. My main motivation was I felt like I had something to say in the space to fill a niche. That wasn't being filled. I saw a gap I saw need and I wanted to meet that need and I think that the audience that I've built since then has shown that that was a legitimate need a legitimate desire. That people had the I was able to serve so people do like you. People like me and we need to remember that so that we don't get down especially around one star review or negative feedback or those lulls or the time when you might feel like. Oh what's the use continuing? Because everyone's just bored and of that. They're probably not going to enjoy my podcast anymore. Young people do like you even if you're downloads. Drop that means that. Maybe some people didn't like that episode or didn't think that episode looked interesting enough or really downloads are not necessarily a direct indication of whether people liked an episode because for them to know if they liked it they would have had to have downloaded it so therefore it counts as download download peaks and dips can indicate something connected to your titles in your marketing or the overall consumption of podcast like right now. A lot of podcasts. During the covered nineteen pandemic. A lot of podcasts are seen a dip in downloads. Well some podcasts are seen an increase in downloads and that has nothing to do probably with the titles or the content of those episodes directly. It's more about what people are doing right now. And whether they want whatever that podcast is about not just that episode but that podcast is a whole whether they want that part of their lives right now but you do need to remember that in general people do like you next. Keep in mind. That perfectionism is not inherently bad. No it's not necessarily good either. They're getting all perfectionist again but there is a place for perfectionism or for trying to work towards something that we might call perfect. I remember watching the commentary for a Pixar movie and I forget which Pixar movies. I've watched the commentary for almost all of them up to a certain point before I was able to keep buying the discs by love. The Pixar Movies Pixar has a very special place in my heart because they were the first in the industry to make a computer generated feature length movie and their storytelling. In how'd inspired me in many ways and many creative outlets that I started to pursue as a result of seeing what was done in Pixar movies and in one of the commentaries. They talked about their approach to creating their movies. Is they refer to as sanding the underside of the drawer. That refers to cabinet makers and out of my league as I talk about this. But cabinet makers put together the things they make a drawer out of wit or something and the underside is something they might not think about. You might not ever touch the underside of the drawer. You'll probably never see the underside of the drawer. But sanding the underside of the drawer. Making it smooth making it. Look good is an extra little touch that maybe no one will ever see but it shows how much you care about that thing that you're doing and how much you want it to be good. That is a level of perfectionism and that is not inherently bad. That certainly helps to make you a better artist. That certainly helps to make a better product as an injury result. So don't think that just because you want to make something perfect or some level of perfectionism or professionalism. That's inherently

"But a lot of the a lot of the ones are not so hot and so that raises a lot of concern but while this argument was still going on Pixar was still making movies for Disney and the incredible 's and cars had come out and that meant that they were beyond the five picture. Deal this point that they something had to change. Cars came out in two thousand six six and at that point Disney and Pixar were able to settle their differences. And that's win. Disney made the announcement Smith that it would acquire pixar four and this is an amount that was astonishing. When you think about how close pixar was to going out of business just a few years earlier for seven point? Four billion dollars. Wow so yeah. Here's a computer animation studio. That was losing so much money that that a millionaire had poured fifty million dollars of his own money in it just to keep it afloat. Now acquired for seven point four billion dollars jobs would end up joining the board over at Disney Zinni and was an even richer billionaire. Yeah and you know you might be thinking. I thought Disney made some computer animated movies by themselves themselves and they did but that's later on and it wasn't circle seven. That was a division that they formed to do that and ultimately circle seven. Didn't do that in a gut A kind of folded into other departments so it was just one of those things where a company makes a division specifically to do something and then it just never works out all right so we want to end this episode. Some fun facts. Yep so here's some of the weird stuff about toy story. The original version of woody was not a pull string cowboy. No he was ventriloquist's dummy which is creepy. Yeah that's what Michael Eisner said. He said no one thinks ventriloquist's dummies or anything other than creepy. I don't want to have a creepy character. As the the protagonist change it. I'm sure at one point. They weren't but now they are mainly creepy. It's Kinda hard like most of the VENTRILOQUIST's dummy movies I've seen and cast it in the form of like possessed dummy Ala chucky but that's all I've watched Jeff Dunham at not gotten scared. so that's and he scares the heck out of anyhow next fun fact okay. Well Buzz Light. Year was not originally buzz. Light year his original name was tempest named after the Classic Arcade Game He also originally was aware that he was a toy. I'm glad they changed. That will apparently the reason why they changed. It was that when Tim Allen came in to read for the character he was is playing him with such bravado and such like completely earnestness earnest and not not knowing he was a toy like treating it like he is a a space ranger that the these the the writers were all saying no way. This is way better than that's when they made the choice to veer away from Basel at your knowing that he was a toy and the last one fact is that Choisir was kind of it kind of had snow eight syndrome so they thought it would take eight animators maters and needed thirty-three Yup and they thought it would take fifty three processors and it took three hundred. Yeah so yeah. This is funny because when we bitter episode about Disney Going into Snow White. It was very much the same thing right like Disney drastically underestimated. How many animators? How much time it? Yeah I think they underestimated the time to make toy story as well as it turned out the reason why they had to go with those three hundred processors was because rendering each of those does Frames just took so much time when you think about like a frame is one twenty four th of a second so a full movie a feature length movie he has thousands and thousands and thousands of frames and when it takes hours to render a single frame you then extrapolate that you realize we will never finish making this movie so obviously things have improved since then but then also as technology improves. Pixar tries to push the envelope of how much it can they do with entomology. So it's it's constantly a seesaw. YEA The they'll animators will come up with a new way to test. The technology due to its limits. New Technology will come out and rinse and repeat. Yeah well this was a really fun topic. Thank you Nathan for requesting it and kind of hitting being a love of both Jonathan Mine. Yeah we loved going back and looking at the story and again like it's really interesting to see how much of it was routed. Not Just Austin animation but in hardware. Yeah yeah which I always appreciate an aerial eyes glaze over. No I do appreciate it. Look like technology this is just not the place for it. Okay Okay Fair enough all right well. What is the place?

"So obviously honestly I was referring to a very specific person with that angel investor and that would be steve jobs and he paid five million dollars to George Lucas for Pixar. Yeah and then he spent another five million dollars to help fund the company to get it really situated At this time jobs is actually going through his own transition. This was during the period where he had been effectively forced out of apple or he had quit depending on who you ask yeah. Yeah and And so he had gone onto found a different company called next and he decided to To swoop in and generally he was going to be hands off he was going to leave the running of the company to Cap Mall and to Smith GonNa keep going but he did have majority stake in the company. Yeah absolutely he. Owned seventy percent of the shares is a private company publicly traded but seventy percent of the shares of the company the and the Pixar employees owned the other thirty percent that will be important later in our episodes. Yeah he also decided that he he wanted to really set. Pixar are up to be a computer hardware company. So all of that imaging stuff they were looking at Unless the animation studio side and we all know how that went and then chilly yes so this was. This was largely a practical kind of determination. The idea that computer animation was not quite At the level of sophistication where you could make say a feature length film they. You had people like lassiter who wanted to do it. There are a lot of people at Pixar who wanted to do it but they had all determined Germond. That as technology stood at that moment it just wasn't really possible. Yeah but I mean. They didn't give up animation entirely. Lassiter still made shorts which were then used as kind kinda just Maga sales pitch sales pitch the pixar system exactly this way. Yeah you you want to know what's possible with this computer here some animation that we designed using this computer so it's kind of like a demo. But you know obviously obviously last year being last year he wasn't going to just. Do you know a bouncing ball or something that would play a part of it especially in the first one and that would be luck so junior where we got the little lampy guy that you see jump on the eye on the Pixar and smashes the I. It's now the I exactly Klay. I said I I but Yeah Alexa Junior. That's they. They would later go back in and sort of remastered that but then became one of the early pitch films that they would use and also really kind of helped set pick SARS kind of aesthetic and tone like. There's a sort of cheeky humor that tends to be in Pixar film and that was that was evident even as early as Nineteen eighty-six when they designed this in short. Yeah it also got nominated for an academy award. Yes it did not win that Academy Award but it was nominated and then in nineteen eighty eighty ages two years later They got another Academy Award Nomination for Best Animated Short Film and that film was called Tin. Toy T. HE I N. Yeah Not T. E. N. T. I N. Toy And a little a little tin soldier and Thou did win the Academy Award. It's also another adorable rebel film. That got remastered later on and it would become the inspiration for a future. Pixar mega blockbuster hit yes In nineteen eighty nine. We got another short from Pixar. Yeah knickknack this is another one that got remastered and rereleased actually as whether shorts that would come before a pixar feature league film. I don't think I've actually seen this was a little snow globe with the snowman in it and he's desperately trying to get over to A. It's like A. It's like a little a little souvenir veneer charge key that you would buy at you know Hawaii or so. Oh Yeah I do. Remember that. He S got little. Yeah and so the whole thing is the snowman's desperately trying to get over to this hula girl. He's fallen level. Yeah so that was another super adorable short in that was Win some other very important. -portant people to the future of Pixar would join the company. This was nineteen eighty nine. That's when Peter Doctor and or Pete Doctor I should say and Andrew Stanton joined the company. Yeah so they're making all. These animated shorts are getting lots of praise for them. Yeah but the business side of things is still struggling. Struggling yeah They were not selling enough pixar image computers to pay off the costs of running business and according to a lot a lot of different stories over the years Steve Jobs collectively poured in about fifty million dollars of his own money to keep player and I would say the. The average person doesn't even know that Steve Jobs was involved. Yeah Pixar out. If you followed it early on you would have heard about him being on the board of directors and things like that but yeah he was very much the reason why the company was still if it had not been for Steve Jobs. Pouring money into Pixar it would not have survived. Yeah well it looks like they may not have at that point because they started getting layoffs downsizing and at the same time Steve Jobs is also struggling with his company. Next next was not doing well either. Next head created a very high end educational computer ran for like five thousand dollars a computer so very expensive and no big surprise here. That meant that there weren't that many customers because not a lot of people are rated the drop five g's on a computer and Even though people thought that thing the elements of the operating system are really really innovative. So Oh jobs was having this issue where he's got one failing business and then another one that is he's just constantly pouring money and he sees is the potential there but the question is. Can you write it out long enough for that potential payoff. Well he kinda didn't he kinda didn't so he sold off computer hardware division of Pixar everything that he had set them up to do the imaging and such decided to get rid of it. Yeah that was the part where he said all right. We're going to focus on the computer intimation side but we're going to not worry about producing actual computers anymore and a company called Viacom Systems purchased the Computer Hardware Business Unit Eh Pixar for just two million dollars. That's not a huge turn on investment there and Viacom and turn would end up going into bankruptcy just a year later so oh it was not. It was not the the the the shot in the arm. The Vikings needed not to be confused with Viacom. Yes No This is Viacom V. I.. com that's not the same as the cable company so the Hardware Divisions Gone so the animation division just flourish rush. No no not quite they still not you ruining my happy ending Jonathan. Well he's gotTa have gotta have the low point enact to who before you can have the happy ending three all right. Continue on all right. So here's the low point in act. Two picks are still wasn't making money and this led to another round of layoffs. An in half of Pixar was fired. A fifty percent of the employees were let go One of those was Co founder. Alvie Ray Smith who may have actually just left on his own after The changes any went on to co found another company called Altamira Software Corporation which was later acquired by Microsoft He would stick around with Microsoft until nineteen ninety nine and retire. So He's out of our story and Steve Jobs was not done. He knew that something big major was going to have to a change soon and to do that. He felt he needed to have absolute control of the company. But here's the problem yet. A majority stake in the company. But thirty percent of those shares didn't belong to him they belong to the employee's Yes so he shut the company down. Yep He he effectively sadly in the Pixar picture pixar was no more he closed. The company is is this one of those like Bernstein Bernstein issues where we think Pixar exists. But it's actually another reality Jonathan. We'll have.

"You know, the movie the movie like with Pixar, they tell, you know, something. You will lose family. You will lose friends, you will be depressed, and then you will die. Now. Look at this talking Bundy. Big Pixar is not afraid to put hard truth out to people. And especially the kids they want the kids know what they're getting into enjoy this right now these colorful images because there's going to get harder from this point out, this Pixar, Disney is Disney, but I'm saying that this is Disney went to Pixar lo que because you know, they this this movie deals with loss. This booby deals with needing this this movie deals with abandonment issues, and they don't even try to present in a way, there's nice they try to say if you were like this. Then you probably fucking crazy. And that's. And when they went to that point. I did not expect them to go to these areas with that movie. Now, it's not as good as something like inside out. But the format of this film the way they deal with psychological issues, and this is low bit darker than something like inside out inside out, you know, the dealt with issues of depression. But I mean, this right here this like I said this gets into a moment where you have issues where you were downright creepy and you need help. And what I love about it is that it's an format that addresses truth oboe, false happy message. This like they know what I'm saying. This this move is not trying to be nice at all what is doing and that format with it's not only about them just being able to go in and deal with deep issues. What looks like a night, even a family film? But a children's film. Some deep issues in part of that also helps us movie deviate away from a formula that we usually see in a family film. You know, what you have not only a basic three extra picture of that point, eight points equal, but also the characters onto same these typical heroes..
