"Are a few things that you look for when you're trying to identify a successful start-up read. So it's generally speaking it can be different patterns, but the simple stuff is all my gosh. This could be a industry transforming company where the time is now sometimes cuz of Technology change sometime cuz the market change other kinds of things that the founder has the enough of the raw knowledge to get moving and as a learner and has that raw kind of grit and adaptability to go through all of the different phases of that these startups go through like for example in my last booklet scaling I kind of described it was five phases of size and the rules change at each phase of Summer. Like how you run the company what management looks like, you know, are you multi-threaded single-threaded and then you can do all of that and then where do you look at relative the competition because one of the really fundamental things off which I just did in my most recent, you know, kind of gray matter podcast and I say was that competition like what is the competition look like is really Central talking to it that that's the sweet and what you look at home then and then that sweet you kind of go.

Has Benefit Society but there's also a lot of a lot of risk know one of the biggest ones has to do with bias. There's been studies out there that that show that facial recognition systems for instance are better at detecting white male faces than they are at detecting women and people of Color, and so you know when you have a technology that is really infiltrating our world, there's going to be a lot of attention paid to it.

Trump and Biden spar from afar in dueling town halls

"Let's talk about what happened last night president trump and former vice president biden making their case to the American people are on Dueling town halls. I was sitting there with my remote going back and forth back and forth both events focusing on the trump administration's handling of the global. Pandemic. Do, you support herd immunity as a strategy essentially just lucky. The Cure. CanNot be worse than the problem itself we did the right thing we were expected to lose two, million, two, hundred, thousand people, and maybe more than that. We're at two hundred, ten, thousand people. One person is too much should never happened because of China it happened because of China and you have to get that and understand that there's a presidential responsibility to lead and he didn't do that. He didn't talk about what needed to be done because he kept worrying in my view about the stock market. He worried if he talked about how bad this could be unless we took these precautions precautionary actions then in fact. The market down and his barometer success economies the market. Joining us up right now is political strategist and pollster Frank Luntz who watched the duly town halls with a focus group of sixteen undecided voters. Frank. What was the upshot? The upshot I've been trying to figure this out for the last couple of months? Why are these people still undecided after all this time after seeing all these different events and watching all the ads and I can answer for you right now They are nervous about trump's persona and are nervous about Joe Biden's policies, and that's what's holding them back. It's not that they can't see difference between the two candidates they see a tremendous difference. But the difference is an aspects of things, they don't like about each candidate and they're trying to decide which is more important to them. The fact that they really don't like Donald Trump as a person. Or the fact that they are really scared about what you're biding might do if he became president. Based on that assessment though as you talk to them and hear their their thoughts. Do you walk away from Matt Feeling like they're moving in one direction or another based on these events or anything else? Frankly know that they cannot decide and that they will not decide and that they're going to wait until Election Day, our history tells us that in the end if they haven't decided to support the incumbent that they end up to one supporting the Challenger. For Donald Trump the only way he can win at this point and frankly he should have done this debate it was to mistake van cancel it the only way now with this state dividing the way that they are with. So few people undecided is that he would have to win every single undecided voter and then win over four five percent who were leading to Joe Biden right now, that is a very tall order when you only have one more debate to come. To show you a couple of clips get your feedback on them. Last night president trump spoke about the economy during his townhall where Savannah Guthrie interviewed him take a look at this. We are going to have a phenomenal third quarter which will be announced on November. I just prior to the big November third day we're thinking this year red wave, but we're going to have a tremendous announcement I believe I mean we're gonNA find out but GDP is going through the roof. If we don't have somebody that raises taxes and quadruples taxes, which they want do and kills everything our economy's going to be phenomenal next year. was that an effective argument for your independence? No no, it was not. It's going to be phenomenal. It's going to be tremendous I. Guess you can applaud him for coming up with words that have three and four syllables but that's not what these undecideds are looking for. They do support they remember the economy before covert and give trump a lot of credit for that but they want to know the details how can he do it again? This current circumstance and they don't want these generalities they want to know exactly what he's going to do. They're never going to endorse him in his persona. They'll like how he attacks don't like the dish business that comes from him but did you appreciate his job and they appreciate his success they wanna see that he's going to be able to do that one more time. So franken next week, these two candidates are going to have their final debate together. Terms of approach if you were advising both candidates, you would be telling them what I be telling Joe Biden to repeat again and again. there. He goes again, you just the same line that Ronald Reagan used to remind people of what they're tired of and to remind people that there is simply frustrated and anxious and the quite frankly exhausted from this campaign. And for Donald, trump and I'm sure that he will not do this I would say look I would I would apologize to Joe Biden for that first debate I'm being very serious now I would apologize to him for that first debate and acknowledge that not everything has gone as planned but remind people that we did it before we did it again he's got the proof he's got the evidence did he knows what to do that it worked once and that it can work again I want to say one more clip. But before we do that, what do you make of all of the votes that are coming in by mail? As you're looking at the different tallies around the country, are you convinced that those are in? The prevailing wisdom is that people voting early voting for Biden do you believe that's the case I do and I'm doing a significant amount of polling on it right now, and by the way Andrew I hope that you can show the focus group because the one thing that's been very frustrating to me as upholster is that we're hearing from people like me and we're not hearing from the voters themselves and I think that that is constructive thing that could possible viewers frank let let's do. Let's do that right now because you you ask your Focus Group of sixteen hundred voters about the economy and we have a clip of that and I want to show it. With. Let's roll it. Trump had an opportunity to speak to undecided voters. He specifically mentioned the economy and what he says over and over again is it's GonNa be Great. It's going to be better than ever it's going to be. We're going to get right back to where we are and Thurs euro substance tobacco

Why some dems dislike Reid Hoffman

"Might, be here at recode centers on tech billionaires who they are, what drives them, and what exactly they spend their fortunes on. And these days one answer to that last question is politics. So I, try and chart the gusher of billionaire money flowing. Into American. Elections. Often in secret. Joining me on the show today here is my editor at recode, Sam, open hey sam hey teddy. So last week, we published a story from you about one of these billionaires read men, the founder of Lincoln Board member of Microsoft, a major democratic political donor. So I think this conversation is a chance for us to talk about why out of the many people in Silicon Valley could be covering why did we focus on hosman? He's not really a household name the way that Mark Zuckerberg are Jeff Bezos are let's talk about what makes him an interesting character in Silicon Valley. Yeah I mean he someone who? Has. A ton of. Money. But more. So is one of these people who sees himself as a quote unquote thought? Leader Right. He sort of coins terms that are used in startup land. He has a podcast which has tons of listeners and he's basically sort of cultivated this image as one of the good guys of silicon. Valley. And in the last four years, he's taken his billions of dollars net worth and decided that he wants to become the tip of the spear of Silicon, Valley's to oust trump and he's doing exactly that Nacho spending his own money but sort of serving as a port of call for all Silicon Valley so that's why we thought focused on Reid Hoffman. As a way to talk about the bigger story, which is the politicization and the new partisan ethos that has taken over tech over the last four years. One of the things that we talk about early in the story as we talk about his donor table and I think that gets at this idea that. He's Gathering his fellow billionaires to take action as well. So can you tell us a little bit more about the donor table and how it works and this big money machine? He's created for Democrat politics in. Silicon. Valley sure. So Hoffman is not just putting his own considerable net worth into this. A lot of the secret sauce of political fundraising that happens you know oftentimes in the dark at private meetings is the art of getting other rich people to do the same thing. As you to create leverage. This is someone who started linked in all about creating social networks to drive professional change and stuff like that. So Hoffman has basically created this donor table, which is a fancy way of saying a bunch of his rich friends getting together to fund the same stuff. So Hoffman has some political help and there are people who are other billionaires who maybe don't have fulltime political help who turned Hoffman they say, Hey, read what are you funding? Can I? Get Out essentially and read in turn will frequently challenge other Billionaires Ju to do the same thing. So sort of what this creates is this network of rich people were funding. The same nonprofits are the same super pacs or the same candidates behind the scenes and what the ends up creating is some organization really well funded others don't and no one really knows this donor table exists, but it's sort of is how big money politics works, which is you know without full Disclosure and accountability and transparency. But read is sort of the node of this new political network something I'd like us to talk a little bit more about is you know there are billionaires all over the country on both sides of the political aisle pouring money into the twenty twenty election and you know I think it's important to cover silicon valley in the billionaires here. Can you explain a little bit more why Silicon Valley is of particular note why are we focusing on? Tech Billionaires. People Reid. Hoffman when we cover politics and money in two thousand twenty. So at the core of read bins takeover of the Silicon Valley money machine is this tension that re dispensing millions of dollars to house trump and yet lots of Democrats hate him and the reason is Hoffman doesn't just want to fund the Democratic Party in the traditional ways he wants to fund Democratic Party in a very silicon valley way funding start-ups that might compete with the democratic establishment. Of State Democratic parties which are the backbone of the National Democratic infrastructure. Hoffman has basically declared a war on the Democratic Party establishment and that sort of has obviously made a lot of Democrats. uncomfortable. He's willing to fund things that push the envelope that some people have ethical concerns over. It's not as easy as well. Re Hoffman spending his fortune to hours trump. There's a lot of uneasiness about him and that makes them a fascinating character the fact that how? Democrats. Both accept his money with open arms and celebrate him. As you know a bore against what he sees a fascist threat at the same time, he's being very critical people who've made their entire careers about being a professional democratic political operative and a lot of ways. Obviously, this gets at a broader criticism of Silicon Valley, which is the respect expertise. They think they know everything I think a lot of Democrats feel that way about Silicon Valley in. But SORT MINNESOTA symbolize this bigger debate about whether any of these silicon valley people know what they're talking about when they enter a field that is not business.

Weird Growth Experiment: What Neil Learned Spending $162,301 on Clothes

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Patel and today we're GonNa talk about a weird growth experiment which is really what Neil learn over one hundred sixty two thousand dollars on clothes so Neil. This is fun episode. Because you're GONNA do most of the heavy lifting so what exactly happened here because he actually wrote something about this a while back as a blog post so tell us what happened so years ago when I was less known house out there hustling much more. I need to go back to doing that. I decided to try to run an experiment. Where if I dress nicer would I be able to charge people more money and make more money so I decided to spend a ton of money on clothes? I probably spend too much and when I would go to business meetings. I'll make shows super nice. You know and see if it would help me. Close more deals in generate more income. Got IT and so. Tell us the process here. I mean the the one hundred sixty two thousand. Did you pick out the clothes? Like what did you do exactly? What kind of clothes were you wearing at in? Pick why she closed or anything like that. I picked me these suits briefcases nice shoes. Think of business attire. But extremely nice business attire things like dull Jacobina Tom for burberry Tana Kashmir little beyond stuff like that Yup. Did you pick up the stuff yourself? I had other people helped me pick out the clothes so what I quickly learned is mainly did this when I was in Las Vegas and I was living there and I lived literally right on the strips. Also close to a lot of the shopping. What I learned is if you spend enough they actually come to your house with racks of Clothes Anna Taylor you. They don't charge you extra for that. They just bring stuff you try it on you get fitted and then once it's done they bring it back to your house and by the way I mean some of that's you still have that look like whenever people see you. It's not like you're wearing suits all the time. It's your worrying. You have a casual look but it's nice clothes correct correct yes well technically now just like a bum. There's nothing wrong with being Bomba. I dress really poorly at this point. I thought you're still wearing nice. You just like a bomb. But you're still wearing nice stuff. Probably might t shirts four hundred dollars so my point is when you look at Neil. He dresses fairly casually. But you can tell. It's still nice stuff. I think that's the point. I'm trying to get people to visualize it a little bit. So maybe let's talk about the before and after results before maybe you weren't wearing as nice stuff and then you started wearing nice stuff like what exactly happened. Can you share any case studies? Yeah so when I go to in person meetings to try to close deals Mike. Closing ratio went up from twenty five percent to forty percent which was huge and innocence brought me over six hundred ninety two thousand dollars in revenue now. That doesn't mean prophecy. That doesn't necessarily mean it pays for the close. It just means I brought in extra revenue and keep them on pitching enterprise big corporations and I think why it worked really well was is because people like all right this guy successful portraying a bigger company and yet. Maybe he's worth the price that he's quoting. I also do believe that its regional base. You know places like Los Angeles Seattle New York Chicago. I think it matters a bit more places like San Francisco. I don't think it matters as much. Yup that's completely true and I mean I mean the typical look as you're wearing like Patagonia vast or something like that and then you're wearing all birds and you're good to go exactly and I also think it depends what phase you are in life because depending on what phase you are in life in business Helps as much in Class A fear. Reid Hoffman Co founder of link Denmark. I don't think it matters what you wear your hundred percent so I mean that's a four point. Three X return to six ninety two on the one sixty two so I guess you know looking at things from a personal experience here. I used to just have a backpack like a normal back. You know meal night. We have a late friend named Brandon who he had kind of a similar back as I do. We look like school kids but once you switched up his backpack to a nice Pat toomey backpack. That's T U M I. He said like everything changed. When you went to route people will compliment on his backpack and then he would get seen a little differently even though he dressed casually. I changed my backpack and I know how to me backpack to and I will say I get a lot of Nice comments about it and people do the first impression how people see you. You'll get one chance to make it right so you know. Even let's say you still want to continue to dress casually that's fine. Maybe you look at the other stuff. Maybe the briefcase right or maybe look at the backpack because you do typically get a couple of nice comments about like Neil the briefcase you have generally. It's always something people talk about right not anymore because I have a child and she plays with the zippers breaks. It and all that kind of stuff in the east you. Yeah makes sense so yeah guys. I don't think you necessarily need to spend one hundred sixty two thousand dollars on clothes. I think we're just saying Zara or any place has affordable clothing. Alex Niccolo unique goes good. I don't know where you go for female codes. Nic Business Attire. It's not necessarily the price it's more so the fit. Yep exactly I that's a really good point you don't necessarily is spent thousands of thousands of dollars if you get a good Taylor. That's probably a little more important on to make sure things look fit. They look a million bucks.

"My name's to track of Lordy. I run a company called Mimika and we're building a I learned to automate repetitive computer work. My question is as an early stage company. That has a top top of the funnel problem hiring diverse talent. What can we be doing to source more. Women and minorities a very important portent question to in this is a problem to address early in the company's life cycle and the reason is is when you bring in diverse talent then they help you bring in additional diverse talent they helped create a work culture a workplace a set of practices and a set of ways that people talk to each other that are already embodies inclusivity and diversity so starting early really matters now in terms of what can you do source companies techniques for sourcing talent is actually part of how they actually in fact act succeed uniquely like each company develops its own patterns for here's how we differentiate. These are the universities the the networks we reach out to these are the companies we go talk to. This is our pitch about what our mission is about why we will work as a company why this is that learns to automate repetitive computer work will actually in fact grow and scale. This is the kind of thing that's very valuable so what you need dad you. Recruiting strategy is diversity recruiting strategy and some of that is okay. We're going to be searching linked in and we're GONNA make sure that we are looking for the right diverse talent. We're GONNA make sure that we're looking at the list and the people that we might encounter. were making sure that diverse candidates earn the list when we're going nor networks and asking them for who are the great people to join an early company we make sure also ask the question who are the great people who have diverse backgrounds so you should be thinking about the diversity and inclusion from the very beginning because then that's helped set the foundation for your company and then sets that when you scale you scale the company that you want to scale the company that you want to be so read these next two questions are both about speed but they're very subtle anyone who listens to masters of scale who knows if you are a champion of fast growth or blitz scaling as you call it and yet you'll probably agree that there are exceptions to that rule depending on where the company is based in what industry they're in the do questions that you're going to hear next might both those exceptions there reminders that business doesn't happen in a bubble you have to consider sitter your unique circumstances and in the case of these entrepreneurs we're going to hear from the challenges of operating outside America. My name is Dominic Eggert founder on earth better by less we help our members to get rid of single use plastics in their bathrooms and improved their ecological footprint. We're in a very early stage. We we worked with the F. in the last couple of weeks on the idea and now we're preparing for seed funding. My question is if you scale pretty fast. Then you're so busy making sure the business doesn't a collapse and that you can manage all this growth that sometimes you're. I'm not able to test and improve the product and learn from what you're doing wrong with my former business it became harder to test and improve the largely got you have a lot of business and if you're up and you're managing a business and five languages which is always a challenge in Europe then you're just a lot MM slower iterating so my question is how should I balanced growth and improving my product dominic. Here's the thing to think about from top hop. which is it's the first scale that matters within the blitz scaling universe so for your situation with better by less? The very first question is what is competition look like if you have competition near at your heels where you actually in fact aren't a contest for who gets the market. I who establishes Dabble shes the brand who establishes the channel who establishes the partner relationships then. You may go all right. I will iterative on what the product market fit is as I'm going there but if you feel you don't have current competition and you also don't have competition that might emerge very quickly and suddenly be blitz scaling against you then taking the time you know with still an eye to speed but taking the time and ordered to do product market fit to think about kind of like okay. What are the ways that we need to improve the product? What are the things that we're gonNA lock in such that when we're doing scale we don't have as many product innovations and the challenge of doing that while we're also scaling our supply chain scaling our marketing scaling our channels for distribution seven and so the right balance a great question. The thing always remember is that it's relative speed as you say when you're you're kind of managing this challenge challenge in Europe which is five languages multiple countries multiple logistic systems. That's actually one of the things that Europe has general challenge getting the scale and that's a challenge but your key thing is your speed relative your competitors. It isn't speed for its own sake. It speed to accomplish being the first to scale so good luck. I loved what you just said there. Read you don't want speed for its own. Sake speed isn't an accomplishment on its own speed need is a method. It's a tool you want speed that accomplishes something else that enables you in this case to be first to scale. There's a lot of nuance wants in that point and it often gets lost when entrepreneurs just focus on moving fast that plays out in a different way in this next question our second question about speed read. My name is Emile. I am the CEO of Novalic and we are diagnosing Alzheimer's radically early using the way you speak doc. Producing language is a very complicated task for the brain to do and ask the brain changes when it gets affected by disease. This affects your language in ways that we can actually she learned so it's been known in the literature of for a long time that there's changes in language in Alzheimer's disease and what we're doing is bringing modern computational computational techniques to learn those micro changes very early on in speech there are potential regulatory questions looking to get approved South Wasim medical device down the line and that's an area where the guidelines of being drafted right now by the FDA speaking speaking so as a digital biotechnology company the medical products that we're building our software this makes them rapidly really scalable but the industry that we are operating in in healthcare and Pharma inherently slow moving and heavily regulated so how do we best scale up hyper fast given the constraints of the industry balancing innovation and being contributing versus abiding by the the existing rules a meal a particularly interesting question given of course a podcasting medium of course wonder how you diagnose me based on on all of the masters of scale podcasts as always with put scaling the key question is how fast are you going to need to move moving faster than slower is always valuable has compounding growth gets more customers increases revenue. That's always a useful thing but in terms of blitz let's scaling in terms of moving hyper fast that depends a lot on competition that depends a lot on what do you need in order to get to critical mass and heavily regulated industries like the medical industry tend to be things where you should be more cautious about your speed lead. You still need speed relative competition but these are things that you need to evaluate in a specific instance as you undoubtedly only heard one of our recent episodes was with an would Gysky of twenty three and me the idea is sometimes you need to embrace the gatekeepers AAC keepers because that's what allows you to reach scale and a lot of it depends on your specific gatekeepers at depends on what the competition petition looks like it depends on which variables are the ones that you could tune up some and all of those things are specific to your specific case but I look forward board to seeing your product and I look forward to other medical products as well by which we take the digital world and we make healthcare so much better it will be back in a moment afterward from our sponsor.

"Just before the break redid realized after four years has Lincoln CEO that he was ready for his next door of duty. I look at my impact across the scale of humanity. And I wanna have multiple things that have had this. Evolution of human culture linked in as one of those linked in is how do we have every individual have an ability to take control of their own projector. If investing in themselves economically with their career path looks like and that is really important to be part of what my story is. And how I impact the world. But I also had other things that really matter to me a lot of things matter to read he wanted to continue investing and join gourds he wanted to study a and its potential for humanity. She wanted to play the role of public intellectual read me that the freedom to round out own story of. Here as Lincoln's co you have to be one hundred percent or one hundred fifty percent focused on the organization and so because I wanted Lincoln to succeed with this mission. But I also wanted to do these other things that was part of the reason why I realize was needed a co founder who is the CEO. So someone who also goes this is my life. This is my mission. Notice how read was looking for not just to see. Oh, but a co-founder I asked him what makes them on a co founder when they joined the company years after its founded, and it comes down to what makes them feel like a hero heart of the difference. I think between ABC's a co-founder is that a co-founder is trying to build an institution for the ages. I will failed if the mission that the company is in the world, isn't succeeding, even if all the metrics and the business and the equity went up and every like, we're celebrated in the business press. If we're not actually hitting our mission objectives than were failing a CEO thinks I'm a hero. If we hit our numbers a co-founder. Thanks hitting. My numbers isn't enough. Read was looking for a co founder, and he knew he couldn't just bring in COO to report to him. Like, no, no, I want someone who is going. I win as the hero people. Have this drive to be the hero of their own story. And so when you're composing team, but most especially when you're composing executives or CEO's. They also have to have the ability to play that hero narrative so read brought in Jeff Weiner as CEO they both knew the transition could be perilous organizations don't easily swap out their leaders. CO transitions are super difficult because they are brain transplants, and they have all the same potential downsides. Also upsides but of of a brain transplant. As with any kind of transplant. The new CEO runs the risk of being rejected. So read followed a very specific playbook to set Jeff up as the new hero of the business. Jeff learned about it on a phone call with read. I started I called him. And I said, how would you like to work? That's Jeff Weiner, by the way, where decisions would you like me to make what do you wanna make? And he said that's easy. It's your ball you run with it. You get the whole organization to adjust to Jeff being the CEO said it's really important when bringing somebody in from the outside to make sure that everyone understands that that person will be responsible for decisions. We took it a step further. Read recognize that people would still come back with muscle memory and go directly to read on decisions, and he calls from people saying Xs broken you need the solve it. He planned about six to eight weeks of time outside of the office over. The course my first ten weeks linked in. I was accepting. Any speaking engagement, the only time in my life. The weavers society of Canada asked me to speak. I would go speak to the Weaver society of Canada. I would get back. I would see is it solved or not people had to reestablish connective tissue with the new guy more than half the time. The person will get impatient..

"What gives people the most fabric in meaning enjoy and kind of presence in life is other people the theory of human nature is that we're social animals the while they're introverts and extroverts while there's some people who really liked being hermits act. In fact, the vast majority of human race finds themselves getting meaning and joy and satisfaction and pollution on the people. You're connected to. With this theory in mind, read set out to launch Lincoln in two thousand two he knew he would build a platform that leverages the connections between people to change lives for the better. And he was looking for a big idea and of all of the ways people might connect online work felt the most urgent. The thesis was cleared. A real identities are real networks will become the platform by which we greatly enhanced how we find opportunities and how we work in most nationally starts when people are thinking what job searching because when their job searching. They're motivated enough that they'll try something new. Read understood that for people to try something new they need strong motivation and that motivation often springs from the desire to emerge a hero in their own story. Job searching was one powerful source of that motivation. But while read was clear on Lincoln's role potential users found it a bit foggy people were literally like, I have no idea what you're talking about. People were also ambivalent about the idea of networking is this a service for people who intrinsically like that working because we all kind of know networking is important for our careers. But it's like flossy most of us really don't like doing it. And everyone seemed to think it was a great idea for someone else. We talked young people say, oh, yeah. That could be valuable service, but for experienced professionals, and you talk to experience professionals that could be a good service. But that would be for young people. Right. You talked to technologists and they say, yeah. That would be a good service for the traditional industries. To figure out new tech. But not for me, you talked to all industries and they'd say, oh, that'd be a good service. But that's for their new fangled. Tech industries not for us. It's not for us. One of the many polite rejection cards, you get handed when the world can't see how your idea would help them or anyone become a hero. Like every trooper Noor vit had to decide how to act on. The lukewarm responses to Lincoln should he fold his hand or play it? So we knew that we had a range of this kind of neutral the negative reactions. You said look do we have deep conviction that as we get through this? We will build an essentially valuable service to the vast majority of people and that as they see it and action their views will convert read had the conviction. He went all in to build the service where everyone could share their professional details and build their professional networks. But how would he get his very first users? Now, you might be thinking wouldn't it be easy for Reed Hoffman to get users? He's a Stanford grad an angel investor. His pay pal cohort alone was reshaping Silicon Valley. Couldn't he just call his friends. I asked read how he got Lincoln's first users did you reach out to a number of superconductors in your network to participate, and how did you persuade them? So we did that mostly me because I was personally most new other super connectors. But that turned out to not be as. Read side as he considered just how to express the fact that his friends weren't all that helpful one of the people who is most useful to us was another guest of masters scale.

"That isn't bundled with your monopoly market service. Read also warned EBay about the dangers of crossing pay pal. Making sure that they understood that there would be a huge cost trying to shut us down making sure that pay pal customers were being very public and vocal about how much they love the service. Ultimately this customer. Love is what saved pay pal? Ebays customers overwhelming preference for pay pal made it diplomatically difficult for EBay to oust them, but how did pay actually win over EBay customers in this case? It didn't involve making anyone a hero. No, sometimes fortune favors the fast or hold trick to dominating that platform was to be faster than the EBay technology, the EBay technology determine the auction winner. And then sent an Email, and here's the crazy tiny detail that allowed pay pal to win. So you would frequently get a notification from paper eighty ninety percent of the time that you and won the auction before EBay had notified you that you had won the auction because oh you won the auction here you can pay with PayPal. So EBay customers us pay pal because pay pals emails arrived. I you just never know which small tactic will let you emerge the hero. As you mayo. Already know read story at pay pal ends well EBay buys pay pal for one point five billion dollars and read has what you might call freedom fund that will make it possible to launch his long delayed second startup, but the timing isn't great. This is fall two thousand and two when the deal closes, and the Silicon Valley intelligencia, everyone is concluded that the internet trend has played out like every other technological trend which had been semiconductors and enterprise software and networking equipment. Some winners then you move onto the next trend. Investors assume that the web was dead but read sought differently and what I realized was that the internet was just starting. It's going to transform how we live our lives. How we were how we buy stuff. All that was actually still in its infancy. Read now had a movie playing in his head, and that movie the biggest wins of the internet age were still ahead. Some of them would come from social networks anchored in your real identity and read would be among the heroes who had helped create this new world. Now, he was considering which kind of hero. He wanted to be when I was interested in was playing out this new rebirth of the internet both as an investor and as an entrepreneur, and I didn't know it'd be a good investor or not I was like I'm doing some investing to see if that's what I understand. I'm doing some entrepreneurship to see. That's the thing. I would do. And so I wanted to kind of place a set of bets. So what was the I bet that read placed the first pure angel investment was friendster friendster. Of course reads. I investment was friendster if you were writing a movie about a character named Reid Hoffman. You had have his first angel investment. Be in friendster. Here's why friendster was the first. First of the modern social networks. It was everyone has a real identity. Everyone connects people whose names and pictures, they see a huge believer in real entity real relationships on as a platform for applications, but how you navigate your life. And so that made friendster very easy. It was easy for me to invest in friendster and not just because it had the potential of great returns read invested because friendster was building the kind of social network. Read believed in France success would make read a hero in his own story. And this is such an important lesson for anyone seeking investors. Don't just look for money. Look for people whose personal mission.

Topping ten million dollar month. Burn rate ten thousand customer support emails unanswered each week as a quick refresher pay pal was an independent payment system. But their users were all on EBay and EBay had purchased a different payment system, which of course, EBay preferred to use it didn't look good. It was pretty certain for years the pay pal as a separate entity was a big risk factor for them. And so they looked at pay Pao is like the wild wild west, no law and order. No sheriffs in town, these untrustworthy scruffy sorts of people. You have to understand EBay leaders saw themselves as the kinds of heroes who ran a tight ship. This pay pal pirates felt like a real threat to ebays idea of heroes them real first goal was just simply persuading them. There was Okay'd leave running. There was a full court press across the entire field to try to keep EBay on board with pay pal growing and thriving on the EBay marketplace. Read fed EBay constant stream of alternate storylines by which EBay could emerge hero with pay pals help. Hey, you should allow innovation. This is quintessential American. There's all these sellers and buyers across the country who really depend on this alternative payment service.

And what was the biggest fire you let burn I had this whole all of them otherwise value pay pal zero like roadkill out of business. We'll read safe pay pal from its demise. Will he realize his vision of a more connected world? Find out now on masters of scale the Reid Hoffman story. Part two. When we last left read he was at pay pal and pay pal has become something of a legend in Silicon Valley partially because of its incredible cast of characters. Peter Thiel, Alon musk max love chin, Luke, no sick. And of course Reid Hoffman. Each of them would go on to define their own heroes path after pay pal? Cemented pay pals place in history. In fact, it brings to mind another legendary group the Beatles. Like the bugles the core team behind pay pal on the long bond feet on mocks. Yeah. There were five of us. You know, go on to transform the world. Okay. So maybe the pay pal team lacked the throngs of screaming groupies, but like the Fab Four they were crazy geniuses each of them hero on their own creative journey leading fans and commentators to later ask whose genius made the group what it was. Or was it the group that made them geniuses? And it just seemed so unlikely that they would have found each other at all. They also went through distinct phases. The idealism of their early days when they first band together. To the middle period where they combined all of their strengths to make something to world had never seen. And eventually the later period where the cracks started to show, our group of strong willed heroes had achieved all that could together and parted ways before stuff got too weird. During his heyday at pay pal? Read says this team of heroes were United toward a common goal. We're willing to be really bold who were willing to take risks. We didn't kind of like panic about our careers. If oh gosh this thing blows up and doesn't work. So you got a lot of people who had that level of similarity all willing to work together.

The Halo Sport headphones supercharge your brain to make you better at sports

"He's the founder and editor in chief of quartz, and he brings to us both his journalistic rigor and his healthy skepticism. Halo is a really really interesting idea. And it highlights more than anything. How little we know about? How? How our brain works. Baritone day is an EMMY award nominated comedian writer and cultural critic who helped relaunch the daily show with Trevor Noah Barrett today is always thinking about the unexpected ways technology sneaks into our social lives. I wonder if you get really good at the halo and your amping up all the time, and you're using it to type better to swipe better to tender harder. So like day trade, better, whatever the physical motion is required. Could you get so good at it that you basically become professor x gets real weird. You're basically an excellent. We're going to start with the vision of one possible future from Kevin what would happen? If people became dependent on halo to function in their daily lives, if I need my hyper learning headphones to be able to feel like I'm capable of learning anything. What do I do when I don't have my headphones? What do I do with their out of battery? What of lack of confidence about my building to learn that's not in some sort of artificially assisted state. We can already learn without halo. What happens when we feel dependent on the headset is Kevin right will halo become a learning crunch. Here's Daniels thought. I guess it's definitely a risk. But I guess, you know, halo sport would be the only product to run into this problem in the history of humanity. I get a little irritated if I'm not close to coffee in the morning. And you know, I don't like it if I'm too far away from my cell phone. So there are these dependencies that I have with certain things. So yeah, it's a tricky one. And I don't know if there's a solution. Honestly, Katharina dependencies are one thing but addiction is another could users become addicted to halo. I pushed Daniel on this. We've never heard in our thousands of users that it was a dicta- in any way which going into this. I could have predicted that what makes something addictive is rapid on rapid off the feeling of something that comes rapidly on take for example, cocaine one of the most addictive substances on earth, and then wrap it off minutes later, you feel the consequences of not having enough of it with neuro stimulation, especially our forms. Neuro stimulation, the Connecticut are not like that. It's slow on slow off. Beyond the physical impact of neuro stimulation on our bodies, halo inspired baritone day to ponder whether halo could change the very nature of humanity. Pumping your brain full of electricity instead of pumping your blood full of steroids or other kind of physical enhancers feels like a real parallel act. Like, literally, I'm ants. I'm powered up, I'm lit X slang becomes literal with this device, and I suspect, and I think on the other side of how people might use this and how popular Mike it's is a yearning for a sort of artisanal physical human in artisanal human, I loved this idea that halo could ultimately make us nostalgic for the time before neuro stimulation, there will be major debates about what qualifies as a real human in the future in the same way. You have to answer questions when you want to become. Citizen of a nation or get a job or anything. You have to qualify for. You'll have to answer. Truthfully.

Because it's only putting off the next phase startup, and of course, pay pal self became this roller coaster was nearly three years of this really intensive how do we make this company work? So Peter clearly had a lot of arguments lined up for why you should join. Then he clearly knew very well. Was there one particular argument that made you say s it was probably two things it was working with Peter and max, and then also the fact that. The really difficult thing on consumer businesses to break out of the noise is to get some really interesting traction. There are just literally probably tens of thousands of consumer internet startups that fail every year that used never hear about. And so it was a combination of working with Peter and max and something that already found it a path to scale a break out of the noise. And there was like, oh, those two things together. This is the absolute right thing to do. Peter was more than just persuasive. He was right pal. Could and would play a pivotal role in reads life. It wasn't his destiny, but it wasn't enabler. And what I really want you to hear in the story is the strategy involved in recruiting the heroes. We'll join you in your epic journey of scale at first it might seem like a simple squishy idea. Just make people feel good shake cans kiss babies, but making heroes is actually a complex strategy. Peter was watching reads trajectory toward hero them and figuring out how to intercept him. How could he harness the power of reads momentum and use it to propel both read and pay pal forward. If you do this. You're like a NASA scientist calculating complex series of slingshot orbits across the solar system. A rocket can't possibly carry enough fuel to accelerate through space for years. So instead scientists have them pick up momentum by plotting path around planets. You'll do the same. But instead of circling celestial bodies, he'll gain speed by crossing paths with other people who have their own energy. If you can find common goals and aspirations with.

He and his investors were watching very different movies about the company's journey to hear them. He and the board parted ways and read considered his next move went. Okay. I'm off the board. What should I do? Well, I've learned a lot. I've learned theories of human nature. I've learned how to start a company investors. I learned all that now until I should go start another consumer internet company, and that's probably where the the seeds of the lose something around Lincoln should happen. So in social net.

It was like literally the intense learning curve with so much that you get down the week. You know, like I wish I knew that. It'd be. We as a new startup founder. I have to say I find reads description, both intensely familiar and incredibly helpful like by the end of every day, if my co-founder Darren, and I have learned something we desperately wished we had known at nine AM, but that's startup life. And read was just starting to understand how much he had to learn how to do interviewing how to build a team from scratch. How do financing how to what the founding team even product development was a challenge at apple and Fujitsu read it worked on products that someone else had started building something from scratch before it even reached V one was something entirely different. I had worked on essentially v one v one one and be one to be too. But I had worked on to one ahead realized that the third game was a totally new game. I thought I'm ready. The gay you've done v one to v one and v one to be to those are not the same games as vis-a-vis one. So it was like, oh, God Amon this entirely new game. Once again Reid jumped into the deep end or rather the raging torrential river Rapids. And from this experience relearn some of his earliest lessons on turning team members into heroes. What I realize is that in the early stages what in blitz gala. I call you know, the family stage. Maybe the tribe stage is actually in fact, you want intense learners is the most the sang ten years of experience being an operations manager you want. Someone says look I understand what being an operations manager is. I am experienced. But really what I am as fast learner, and I'm a team player. And if I were to call myself in say, look, just you one thing differently from the early stages of social, and it would have been like, okay. Do your company construction with a heavy bias towards fast learning people who have a little bit of experience, but are not seriously experience on what they're doing if they have serious greens. Great. But it's at fast learning curve of something new that matters. Note that when read had to choose the one piece of advice to give his younger self. He focuses not on funding or timing. But the team his most treasured lesson is that it's easy to mistake a talented person with the right person. And this comes back to the ideas of hero dumb in the movie of our lives early stage. Startups are about embracing chaos and learning fast. If you hire people who's personal idea of here at him. Requires perfect com are.

Actually. In fact, the vast majority of human race finds themselves getting meaning and join satisfaction. Evolution on the people. You're connected to.

In fact, has plans for the future at that time sounded even more outlandish than the fantasy world who is dreaming up knows planning on being the director of the CIA. Yes, you heard that. Right. Read wanted briefly to be the director of the CIA, but hear him out in my thirteen year old mind. There was obviously Tana suffering in the world. I was trying to figure out how one would solve that. How would you solve the world's problems by teaming up with his smartest friends in forming an alliance of superheroes. Of course. As well. If we all kind of formed a pack in each of us would go for different leadership position. You know, someone's going to be president someone's going to be this back, then CO VM, and if we all went to these different positions, then we could collaborate, and we could then make the world a better place by having high trust. And and being all these different leadership positions. We could impose a different structure. Youthful idealism. Yes. Of course. But what fascinates me about? This story is the way read was already thinking about his friends as different kinds of heroes. And how he could unite them toward a common goal notice to that re- didn't imagine himself as leader of this cabal his heroes role was the initiator and connector that's pretty amazing for a kid in junior.

"I'm like what the two of them hatched a plan for a real life quest to meet the creator of their favorite game. I was like, well I'd like to go there. And he's like, well, you know, I could bring you with me. Just please read Ziedonis his friends set off on an arduous half mile journey by foot across the suburban expanse of California's East Bay near Berkeley, they braved wide Sunday pulled streets marched past seemingly endless ranch style. Homes dodge the Volkswagen buses that rattled by. And finally made it to the unassuming layer of Rune quest creator. Steve perrin. It was set in a suburban house. The twelve year old read it held all the promise of a wizards palace atop mystical mountain. There was a little bit of a kind of classic kind of Berkeley Emeryville house, which is a little inset from the street, and it's called a long path through this kind of grass the entrance to the house. And therefore, the main office was up a staircase Redon, his friend mustard, their courage and ask to speak with Steve we started kind of trying to show our credentials by saying a, and we we played this one of your things, and we did this and we did this. And you know, obviously, the normal thing for adults with a twelve year old walking in as oh my God who let the twelve year old in. And they are I think decent folk they weren't like get out of our office. There were like, okay. And why are you here? Read in his friend grasped for the connection that would get them into Steve's office, the identified themselves as neighbors say, well, I'm your neighbor. And I brought my friend by because he really likes the stuff that you do we both really like it, and so forth read, I love the fact that you've referenced that you were in neighbor. It's like your first linked in introduction. Yes. Exactly. I'm connected to you. Yes. Just right next door. Of course, you'll take my invitational. Actually, I'm following the neighbor in the door. I'm not the neighbor. It takes me forty minutes to walk here. But my neighbor you allow him in the door, and I kinda come in the door with him the analogy gets better and better like any good adventurer read had come prepared. He wielded the secret weapon that would let him establish his mastery. I happen to have bought one of their new scenario packs, and I looked at it was at this is really incompetently done. It was like, well, this is just bad math. This. Character design is wrong. This would be more interesting. It had this twist, and I really marked it up. Classic red ink was bleeding. And so I brought it in to Steve Paran and said here, you just publish this. And there's a bunch wrong with it. I wanted to see it. You can totally imagine young feed marching up to Steve and thrusting that scenario pack into his hands at first Steve has the reaction you'd expect of any grownup confronted by a precocious kid who's I could see him rolling his eyes like a God kids wasting my time. And then he started we're looking at it went, oh, I got another thing you could look at would you like to look at it other thing, and I'm sure Steve Zahn opportunity to cast read in a bigger role. One that helped ruin quests and gave read a shot at hero them. So it gave me the next thing. He was working on which was an entire book of scenario backs and being an obsessive kid. I think I went home Thursday worked on Thursday night left school as fast I could on Friday worked on Friday worked on Saturday worked on Sunday in brought it back. I think Sunday afternoon just completely revised and said, oh here, and these all this is real work. And so gave me a check. And I bought the check home. And then my dad who had previously been worrying. Oh my God. I've lost my kid to this role. Playing game called was like, oh, maybe this isn't such a bad thing. After all to this day Rune quests list read as one of their contributors. You can see his name inside the cover of the latest edition released last year. What I love about this story is that reads obsession with Rune quests demonstrates. So clearly, the dilemma that every successful company faces when you create something that people love it takes on unexpected..

"I wanted to talk to read about this because he spent his life thinking deeply about what connects people both one on one. And in groups of massive scale and read has been thinking about this since he first discovered roleplaying games. It started in the mid seventies. At his father's house in northern California at a table strewn with strangely shaped vice and small figurines of fantasy characters. I I discovered dungeons and dragons when I was nine, and it was because the babysitter that my father was hiring his technique for dealing with otherwise rambunctious and difficult to manage young boys was introduced on the dungeons and dragons back then many saw dungeons and dragons as a refuge for social misfits. But for read it struck his curious young mind, he treated dungeons and dragons as a fascinating laboratory for strategy built around human motivation. You going off, you know, being a hero and defeating villains and saving the town and that kind of stuff and some people do the role playing where they're actually interacting. They say I am Thor. And you know, I have come here to save your town. I was always more of the strategists, which is okay, I'm looking around like, okay. The orchestra attacking the village. Maybe they're attacking the less side. Maybe we could create like a fortress and of defense, and like it was more of a puzzle from me within the interactive story. V. It's thirst for adventure grew he recruited a band of classmates and took on the role of game master himself. He was now responsible for creating in running a fantasy world a world in which his friends were spending more and more time read soon realize this involved more than coming up with fantastical situations and presiding over geeky dice rolls as part of it. You also wanted to have people feel like they kind of earned their hair was so what they did is. They would have a difficult challenge. It have something really have to figure out it would take effort, and they might not get it. Right. And you had to make sure they didn't die because no one likes to be in the story where like oh, you hall died. All right. But that struggle you would set that up with some depth to it. So that people would enjoy the path for figuring out how they could be heroes. It's interesting because because by your description, it is very much a game of complex human motivations. What did you learn about human motivation playing dungeons? Dragons, I did learn that people wanted to be the hero of their own story that that was a fundamental kind of human drive across you know, almost everybody. I the kids tend to be a little simplistic and shallow. So they've definition a heroes has kind of pretty simple like hit dragon with sword. Now that gets richer for some of us as we get older. I suspect there have been moments as a CEO in investor when you longed for the days when people were as simple as just wanting to kill something with a sword. Yes. Although sometimes all you have to do a scratch added to figure out where that is. Very often people's motives have fairly simple character. Like, I want to be the important person. Who solve that problem? I want to have the credit for it. I was like well, actually, in fact, there were five of us who are all working on it all contributed to come out. And and yes, you component was important. But you're weird behavior is because you're trying to kind of Sirte that claim life is a team sport, not an individual sport. And once you start thinking that way, everything goes a lot better life is a team sport. And it's the team leaders role to make everyone hero read learned this early. And it all started with role playing games because read loved roleplaying games. And you have to understand when read fell in love is akin. He fell in love hard. I was an obsessive child that would literally go to the local public library. And I would start reading an section. I would just pull off an expert can pull off the next book in the next book. I basically played fantasy role playing games from age nine to about age fourteen. So about five years of pretty deep obsession..
