Carl when i saw this i immediately thought well on getting a view of baseball's future i it's obviously not going to happen in two thousand twenty one but i think at two thousand twenty two you will see. A parallel policy would end by major league baseball. What he thinks. Yeah look i think I think you're one hundred percent right. i think the. Nfl has been has been more proactive than than other leagues in in all decisions whether it's vaccine related or media-related or social media related or or business related they. They seem to to recognize their power and authority and as a league they. They put business first and for them. This is. this is a business decision. And i know. Having this conversation there are going to be people who call it a political conversation. will get into rights etc and all those things are valid to it.

Working From Home: Get Your Hybrid Schedule Right

"Of organizations are moving people back into physical offices at least part of the time but there is a lot more flexibility now than in the past so this can be a great opportunity to consider how you work best and what might make your work life balance possible. This episode was inspired by a question. I am getting a lot. these days. People note that their organizations want them to work in the office three days per week and at home two days per week. So which days would they like to work from home on some level. This isn't quite the right question. True flexibility means working from home when it works. Best for you which could change week to week this week. Your kid has a special lunch at school on wednesday so it would be good to work from home that day so you can dart over and back without losing too much work time or maybe you look at the traffic tuesday morning and see that there's a gigantic star on the bridge. You have to take to get to the office rather than sit in a solid hour of traffic. You decide that. That is a good day to work from home. But i know a lot of teams like to coordinate in-office coverage or when would be best for meetings and many people like to create a weekly rhythm that they can plan on. So i understand the impulse to designate. Which days will be worked from home days. That just leaves the question which days my first bit of advice don't automatically pick fridays. This is probably the most common choice and pre pandemic. it was basically the only day. Many places would allow people to work from home but friday tends to end earlier anyways so if it helps your work life balance to be home earlier you will automatically do that on fridays. You want to find different days where your work life balance could be improved. If you've an awful commute my choice would be to work from home. On tuesdays and thursdays this can make a bad commute more bearable. Because you never have to do it twice in a row.

NASA Returns Hubble Space Telescope to Science Operations

"Your generosity towards Bob's behind the Black during fundraising July is extremely appreciated. However, we go to one of Bob's four books, his biography of the Universe and Amir Hubble. Because Bob can help us understand the latest. We know of the patch or fix or remedy offered for hubba. Bob, Can you offer us a moment to believe that Hubble can be well again? Uh, no. I can tell you what's happening right now. But until it's done, we have no idea. NASA as now. This is actually engineers Goddard Space Flight Center in a Space Telescope Science institute that operate Hubble. They have now think they have determined exactly what caused the computer problem that shut the telescope down on June 13th more than a month ago, and they think it's a component in what in their science, instrument command and data handling unit that's computer, essentially And it's what they call the power control unit. Basically, think of the power supply unit and your desktop computer, which you can normally just take out and replace. But in this case, they can't do that. They have a backup for it, but it's part of a backup for the whole computer. Essentially, at least this whole command and data handling unit. And so they need to switch more than just the power control unit. Things may need to switch several units at once, and that's a complicated procedure. They've done a complete simulated test of that switch. On the ground successfully. They actually did a similar switch on Hubble back in, Oh, eight, and so whoever they and they have now begun began on Thursday, the 15th of July. They began that switch on the telescope. It's going to take several days to complete it, and then they once they completed they will do some additional tests, hopefully to make sure everything's working. And then put the telescope back an operation Now one will the test this switch work? We don't know until they've got it, too. Even if this does work, be prepared, be recognized that the telescope will no longer have backups to this computer computer data handling unit. So that

"For this. I think for me. Talk a little bit about to be thousands Example again for like a product works on the on in the room or a company executives. i mentioned earlier. The why behind what we do and why we talk about the light and like what pushes than the company culture effects to the end And one of the one i mentioned was is valued customer. That gusta has app service. Might sound like we are here to serve customers. This is our our reason for being and during the pandemic epidemic hit Last year you really could feel that. We basically iran's Want to say marjoribanks became like very serious We just finished going through annual banning and like the all these work around planning and strategizing and resourcing and all that stuff we basically put all that aside and focus on one thing which is helping customers survive this. We didn't know in the beginning. Weddings meant but quickly says today's look like Providing people the resources to understand the different government programs that are available for them giving people easy access to loans from the pp program dot wasn't and we basically like almost a really focused our entire resources on this and being there for those moments. We did it know what's going to come out of his on the other side of that. That was the right thing to do and again if you take a step back. That's just a cultural thing and also lines with our strategy of customer love The drives drives our growth. We ended up Helping fund more than four billion dollars of vp loans to small businesses and. That's you know. Made a difference for them and their families and made big big difference for us. I can say that for gusty for people who work with gusto you saw. How much purpose. And how much you know just vitality they got from being able to be in this place of making a difference in helping And it was just really just a wonderful moment for me. As a fonder to kinda see at people take all of these energies and put them in great us atlas software. And yeah. you're either going the other side of it ended up leaving amplifying again. A word of mouth because people notice our customers notice and they noticed we went above and beyond for them and Results of that. They're not just sticking around but they're bringing on more fans and growing helping us grow our business truly well. so that was you obviously condemn. It was it. Was it last. Year was terrible year from a health standpoint and many other reasons but Forgot does business. It ended up being really really strong year. One of the reasons is. I believe Sort of came from out. There's also these actions and then in terms of what we do to farther You know kind of Spread the word about about gusto and really think it's still the core this the of service mindset of being there for the customers. Of course we have a wonderful released. Really strong Marketing teams putting Dollars toward across all different channels performance marketing and and other Avenues we have a great sales team helps serve customers through their voting process. I'm work with accountants. Spread the word and help them run their practice so we have old older all the core functionalities and excellence these areas. But really the thing that makes. All of this work is in the end. High net promoters motor spor people loving the product and ensuring insuring wildly. That's great. I think this is such a great conversation man. I have so many questions about. I just wanted to let everybody know. I am recording this conversation and love to hear from heather. If you have a question hi everyone. I am heather. Censio and the founder and ceo of the product console product management veteran Been in products for about thirty years about half that time with large companies in the latter half of my career lewis startups I am sorry that i missed the beginning of this call. Because i am so excited. Start using gusto myself. Actually it seems like At least from the full time talking to there really is no other option and everyone loves the serta. so i'm excited to be user myself. I spent a lot of time. Thinking about product management and product culture I've seen a really radical difference in my experience as a head of product at large companies with big teams moths people and processes and great each organizations A big difference in that environment versus product at a start up and i spent a lot of my days and my time thinking about building great product cultures at startups Where oftentimes you have a lot of new people coming together for the first time to figure this out how romans business. I'd love to hear some of your experience around how you've done that. So well I know that You know gusto. Part has such a great reputation because of the It's gotta be the quality of of work life there so we'd love to hear any experiences or advice you have a half the thank you. I think so I hope that you you love gusta when you use it then he knocks our end. The and if you do have any feedback just let me know you have your payroll diorite year So you know it's a great question. I think Companies change teams change organizations changes. They scale and that's normal and that's that's okay that's good. There's some things that are easier something harder when you're larger And i think the key that in my opinion is to is to just be cognizant. A thoughtful ahead of time Deliberate about the type of organization you want to build and just spend time on. It's because the culture if you don't set the culture if you don't work on it ahead of time if you don't think through dodgers every was or the people who are you're bringing on board but also the connections between them and other work together That things are gonna happen on the by themselves and you may end up call with a culture that you heard you're unhappy with and that's really really hard to change So i would say that's the first thing that comes to mind and and i think the when you start argued one example again the key to to connect to have the key to have to build products during the understand the customer and there's no replacement understanding the customer other than just talking with them and being there and living in their shoes and you know and heavy personal experiences there When you're starting up it's very easy you don't have that many customers who don't have many people you know your customers know that there's joining that they're trying out the new company so they kind of know that there's going to be kingston and actually like it. Usually those early stage customers at least in in degussa story of her. They knew that they were lying on a new company. And they like the fact that they had you know the founder the co-founders phone number. They can call me up whenever they wanted. And i will talk with him every time they rent payroll to understand how it went and what went. Well what did it and Similarly folk other folks on the daily productivity gusto had the same situation they were talking wither our customers in a kind of regular basis without the need for meditation. That's you know beyond just like a phone number And emails and so forth. And what happens when you grow rightfully so those interactions become a little bit harder much harder. Actually because you wanna make sure you don't speak the same customers hundred times you wanna make sure that you protect obviously the customers data. You wanna make sure you protect Police state nine or please just Persona connection we can't have every single person. I said there are four numbers to to every customer. So that's not gonna work so the so it's a good example because if you don't do anything if you don't think this through ahead of time you basically are gonna lose that That next activity if you don't create a system or process where people on the product team regularly talk with customers are. They just won't do it because it's going to be really hard in and out of their normal way.

"Where some areas to explore that. Those are all great points. I think what's really interesting about. Gus dell is that there's also Surprise and delight that you offer. That may not cost money for instance at the bottom of my screen. It'll only say we love and has the name of the company right and it has we and then a heart and that's very simple Addition to create but it actually does create a delightful experience that you wouldn't ordinarily get and I just wanted to remind everybody in the audience. If you have a question if you wanna read your hair and we love to have you come up in the next few minutes but going back to Tomorrow with some of the questions. I think is interesting. Is this idea of what you mentioned about. Fixing a pain point that customers have that they may not know that they have. And it's something that. I was talking about sunia whether you are elevating and experienced that i actually didn't know needed to be elevated prior to starting with gusto but now that i've experienced your service. I realized the difference. And i'm curious when you are going through the iterations and deciding on what new features to add what new partnerships to begin with. How do you assess which companies to work with because you really more than a payroll company also offer You know 401k. Plans where people can do You know they're set up their own. 401k if they want you offer medical benefits you also recently on started offering away for employers to start hiring through an app through gusto. So i'm curious. How do you make those decisions on the partnership side. Yeah sure thing. I just think technical questions i have. Someone says that they have something to say vitamin speaker. Should i say yes to. Everyone wants to speak. No we'll we'll bring them up on our ends. Okay yeah sorry so back to. How do you decide what to spend two and so forth. So i think i think there's a couple of things so you mentioned that delightful piece like the example like you know the come to lead a little app pieces of craftsmanship Across the product that helps abc agreed that that smile just a few things about that and then about the expansion. So i think this is a cultural thing like when you set up your product team set up the you used to decide what's what he stands for. What do you care about what you what you push for. And i think for us. There's kind of two things that come to mind here. That are really pushing this behavior. And in the indiana this result in the product the first you said you have service mindset. It's one of our company values date guys that we are here to serve our customers. That's that's it that's why we're here and everything we do is a service of the customer. So you know like the tagline that i have for example you know in slack is our customers are waiting. What are we waiting for. The entire the is like how can we go into customers. But it's really the center and that literally leads us to the next thing which again that eight years like delights talking about that a lot again the delights these like such a such That got the big word in like. They're overused where to find. I still look at it very seriously. Like they deal with delight these. How do you see the smile. Someone's base why's dot important because if people use your software hours and hours every day every week every month like why wouldn't you do something nice. Wouldn't you make them happy. Why wouldn't you make a positive moment for them. And guess what. It's also good for your business because if you have people enjoy talking like using your software they'll end up talking about it then mentioning it and Our strategies all about the end of the day land and expand part customer love. That's how we that's been be starting for many years now. Land and expand perfect customer love. It's all about customer love customers. Love us that we know. And we've seen it and we're seeing it in the numbers that's how we grow. We don't have thousands of people sales people you are running around and knocking on doors at. We grow because of our of merlot because accountants which sees us employees and so forth so anyway that's kind of the philosophical ideas that are china that are pushing The practices that you're saying every critique. But we do in the company. We always has asked the question in the critic when we look at new designs. Where is a delight. What are the moments in the user experience that provide opportunities for like now not every moment to delight. That could be like. Sometimes there's bad moments you gotta find. Something went wrong or as you don't you shouldn't throw confetti. When that happens app. You need to understand. The customer journey and identified. Wanted twenty moments where you actually can do something to participate in solid bait or commiserate with your user and that being be there with them in a thoughtful user interaction so that that's kind of the philosophical stuff that are happening behind to make happen in terms of where to expand to the end of the day. It's really about your strategy. It's what would what you're trying to do for gusta what we are trying to do for customers. We're trying to be there for them.

What Is the U.S. Doing to Help Cuba?

"Get to it with our first topic. Which is actually about the historic protests in cuba where thousands of people took to the streets all across the country amid an economic crisis in food shortages exacerbated by the corona virus pandemic. In the last few days we've seen the government in cuba restrict internet access and block most social media sites. Although from what i read. Twitter is still like bobbin in cuba because the government uses twitter and also there were reports of over one hundred people who have been arrested or missing and that actually is. According to amnesty international and at least one person has died in clashes with police on wednesday. The president of cuba miguel diaz canal announce that they would lift restrictions to allow travelers to bring food and medicine into cuba from abroad. There is also an admission by him saying that his government could have done better with these protests that was interesting meanwhile back in the united states i feel like a comic book like meanwhile back at the white house on thursday president joe biden call. Cuba quote failed state and condemn their government's actions. We also know that the us has a role in this as there has been a decades old. I mean more than sixty years trade embargo by the united states against cuba which essentially prevents any business between the countries didn't back to nineteen sixty two k. So this has become an american tradition. Now the embargo just what it is. Yeah right you know what i'm saying. So but then the other thing is during the trump administration and this is what i find interesting. There were more sanctions put on cuba under trump and flight and remittances from family members in the us to cuba were even further restricted by the bynum ministrations. Pretty much has done. Nothing since biden has come into office. Nothing's really changed when it comes to cuba which you would think by now you know if we all remember obama he was like. Let's lift the embargo. You know what i mean. It was like you're in that administration. Joe right but according to the vitamin administration. They said that they are reviewing these policies but they've yet to reverse. Any of them are fabulous intern. Sarah her shandor spoke with an i guests. She has been on. Itt before seventy nine three goes who is a correspondent for political and somebody is of cuban-american descent and she has been reporting on cuba. This week and sabrina talked about the government's suppressive tactics like cutting internet access. And what cubans are hoping for so. Let's listen connecting for people has been a difficult. There's friends that. I haven't heard from in days that i know went out for the protests in there is that frustration anxiety about were. They beat in where they arrested. Are they missing an. It's hard to connect with people at this moment but a lot of people feel a level of frustration and desperation. That i had not heard before i mean. People have been tired of the dictatorship in cuba. But i will actually say from my perspective. Who was born and raised in cuba has been in exile in the united states for the majority of her life at this point. She's ninety one and she is optimistic. That change can happen. I mean her attitude about this is it can't stay this way forever and that these human rights can be violated forever. People can't be going hungry in dying on the streets from the pandemic without access to a hospital without access to medicine let it cannot continue that way indefinitely so that if it doesn't happen this time it has to happen at some point

"Made sure that there was clarity about. What were the expectations of the commander had for the cadet and once that understanding was was laid out. And this is this really touches. My heart as the commander then said art cadet. What are your expectations from me. And what that does is it sets the environment where the cadet can spell out. Okay here here. Here's what i expect from you and it also begins to lay the foundation for. I want your input errand. That's a rate. That's a poll the to like a in the marketing world. We have the prussian poll or even product. So that's that's if leadership is even aware or like in touch with that piece but if not What are some of the in. This is to me more afflicted communication approach. How do you as an individual in the organization talk to your leadership about the disconnect culture that you're noticing man you know. I wish i had a better answer. So here's my answer. Is it starts with not being attached to the outcome. So you have to be for example if you're going to do that if you're going to bring up to the leadership that you think something is out of integrity. The only way you can do that in my in my view is if you're willing to lose your job not that that's what should be just that kind of the reality that is and so i definitely have done that and and i have lost a job for it and i've done that and been thanked and i've And i've been and i've done that and i've been ignored and if you don't have that detachment from the outcome for whatever reason and i believe me. I say this without judgment because there are also times. When i could not afford to lose my job for example that i have kept it to myself so if you haven't had if the leadership has not set and reinforced and reinforced again and reinforced again and reinforced. Every single day. The clear expectation and the proof that we want your input and he will be rewarded for your contrary input. If the leadership doesn't set that expectation then it is a risk and it's a risk that each of us has to decide whether we're willing to take on or not thank you for that. We have a hard stop in five minutes. So demille shrivenham and mo- shea. I love to hear your questions if possible and if you can keep them short though be awesome. Go ahead jimmy.

Isn't there but traits and skills wise The he's he's he or she is the best candidate in that situation How do you balance that with a culture and vice versa in those situations for me.

I agree right and it's it's not. It's not that i'm proud of it. It's just. That's i just keep i keep doing it and clearly. It hasn't become important enough to me to change. However i have changed my culture in that i now make the bed every morning Which was more important to her than the shoes. That was something that is that she communicated to me was terribly important to her. So so as leaders in our companies. We need to decide. What are the behaviors that we require.

They sought stop the interview with meat when sunday. That was their way to check if i belong or not. Anyone says no to interview and sunday didn't belong there.

Sunday's are for family so take it or leave it right. That is not a culture fit is value fit. It may be and so you know a we may or may not ever ever agree. I will always choose to work in a place where where differing culture differing choice about how to get things. Done is embraced That'll be always the choice that i make. And what you're talking about in the second workplace that you talked about to me. Sounds like an not focusing on results. Not focusing on outcomes and so focusing on results is a value results focused as opposed to activity focused or result. You know we've got we set deadlines and we meet them. Because deadlines are promises we we. We honor our promises. That's a value fit so that that's the way i think about that distinction for.

Prepare the soil and that's looking at the kinds of structures that we talked about. I'll tell you very quick story to illustrate this is i was working my when my white back when my wife told me she was pregnant. Right that's where. I was working in a public school and i loved. I loved my work. And i love my boss and my boss is somebody that i i sought out to have a relationship with. This is a woman who's twenty years my senior twenty years longer in the industry than i was and she said one day. You know you're a mentor to me. So that's that's the the the kind of person we're talking about. And she called me that. Because i had knowledge and insight about leadership that she did not happen that she admired. Meanwhile my colleagues many of them and pardon me for for for the language but this is a quote called her an arrogant bitch. is kind of hard for me to reconcile up. I the idea that these colleagues whom i respect new seemed reasonable. Thought that this woman who called me. Her mentor was was arrogant. And what it. What i came to understand was that when she would go in and evaluate their teaching which is something she could only do once a year because she was in responsible for six hundred students and thirty teachers she just didn't have time to establish a solid relationship with people and so When she gave them any kind of critical feedback that happened inside a the context of a relationship that really wasn't at all developed so it's a structure creating mistrust and the same thing has happened with with clients. They call they say. I've had a ceo collins say i've got great people on my front lines and i've got great people managing the people in my front lines..

And that's their downfall so when we can find putting startups or new entrepreneurs Those are the types of things that are most interesting to us because we can help exponentially grow those companies. Pretty quickly interesting. I think to close up by. I would like to follow that up with just kind of general thesis of where health is in our world today in a way you started the room and kind of come full circle with this idea that we look at certain countries. Let's say like japan where you have a high number of centurions amongst the okinawans If you look at people who incorporate the mediterranean mediterranean diet. Excuse me They also have a large number of centuries but if you look at the united states we've lagged behind taking care of ourselves. I mean like you mentioned before. Million millennials have done a great job in Adopting a lot of fitness into their lives and making it part of their lifestyle. But generally as a whole i mean united states has a huge obesity problem. We have not necessarily done the work that we need to take care of ourselves. And so i'm curious from your standpoint. Do you think we can change this. Can we turn this around. And how is serotonin gonna play a role in that. I will tell you that. I believe and david asking saying all the time but i believe we have the ability to live beyond andrea and twenty one hundred and forty. I think he wants to live lifted And i think yeah we as a as a whole if you look at it you know country. I would say that we are lagging behind. Whatever reason there's probably a litany of reasons that everyone come up with on this on this particular clubhouse meeting but i will tell you that i think how we consume food and how we've been marketed. What types of foods and what things are healthy and not healthy has really been difficult to navigate for the average person Because of what we hear and see in media it's very challenging. It's a very powerful tool. It's been used and i used against most of our better health For the benefit of profit in nutrition and agriculture in certain areas. I will tell you that you can't deny what you just said. there's there are centurions out there and it's it's it's how it's lifestyle it's what they do is how the it's it's there's lots of amazing reasons what we don't here yet and i'm optimistic hopeful that we will take advantage of the opportunity for us to help as many people as we possibly can to see the benefit of of good nutrition and good exercise habits in good health habits and taking care of you only get one one machine to work on earth regularly get this one body.

It's part of my regiments of managing microbiome is is part of my regimen I- i tested a different way.

"Which gets you out everybody. Get your brand out there. You know. I always say that It's interesting if you're only starring the kool aid and not drinking the kool aid as a leader. So i've always believed bet you've got to live the product in the model that you're endorsing and i've always lived passion. That's why i lot. My instagram stories are a generally a combination of who might follows all right. They're usually fitness and related health in anti aging related or they are related to business. And so i post my workouts. Post my anti resume. I'll post if i'm getting up intramuscular aleppo injection for twelve and and and l. carnitine or something and i do that because you know that's that's part of my belief system in what i do and i follow it. I always tell people. I drink the kool aid that i also serve. I'm you know some people on this call may or may not remember growing from the hair club. I also a member. Because i am. I'm the beker. So i believe there is a responsibility for both. I believe responsibility to do personal branding as well as all of those other things you said. I mean there's a lot of responsibility for leader in in a company. Especially see out but personal branding is tells people that want to know more about you who you are and that can relate cannot relate to your company in some cases it does think it would be interesting to know if you follow it around. You know some of the leaders of. Let's say allowed mosque. Didn't own a tesla driving electric vehicle. You caught it. Would it be like that would make head scratch a little bit. And i think it's important. What people are branding themselves to extend knowledge base about what they care about. Generally that's a thorough the companies. They're leading that's a. That's a great point. And i think we will have some more questions on that from the audience in a minute Just a quick reset. Thank you everyone for joining us Eric is a serial entrepreneur.

I'd like us to even if we're going to use the term work like bouncing just for just the term life work balance. That's what's important. Our life is important. And i think even more so now that we're all at home many of us have had the opportunity to be with our kids and put them to better eat breakfast with them or spend more time with our dogs or fix physical fitness even in the midst of loneliness even in the midst of of burnt out. There have been some gifts here. So i could talk for hours and hours about about what i believe. We're creating here at banner in what i am. I believe in what my belief is that other cultures can create. Because i'm just passionate about creating creating places where people feel like. They belong creating places where people feel like. They don't have to put their guard up that they will be accepted. And i know. We're a long way from that. But but i do believe we're on the road. Thank you so much high visual.
