"Well. The first thing is the circled New spice year for me is really characterized by some of the immensely wealthy people. The likes of just as also blue and on mask with spice ex richard branson virgin galactic Sp in the case of virgin galactic thing not so much richard branson's personal wealth as the brand of the virgin group but in the other cases it was immensely rich people to shoeing their dream of envision for spice exploration and development all settlement. Cabbie aiken is the chairman of the national space society based in washington. Dc and the national space society of australia. And so they come in. And i think shoeing those particular dreams about without even doing it commercially. They're doing that. The commercial pressure that a normal commercial company would have reporting to share homeless. You wanna say returns etc so they can take an extremely long term view And i can make decisions companies. Couldn't so that really allowed New types of developments to take place mutating technologies to be explored With spacex you reusable won't vehicle technology Blue origin in pursuing a particular vision or Mass transportation and and people living in spies Of course Virgin galactic with their technologies for spice tourism has elicited a fair amount of Commentary racing either. Cons is a professor of space physics at the university of sydney and director of quavo which is an auk training center fa- cubesats unmanned aerial vehicles and their applications. He recently had a mini satellite also known as cube sat. He made go into space. It's about thirty centimeters toll. Why ten by ten looks a little bit like a rectangular robot to some extent especially when it's has antennas Coming out deployed Sort of a bit light braids of hair right say Scott black and white panels on it. It's bad but it's it's a serious satellite. It is really quite capable carries to technology demonstrators and for scientific sush engineering payloads and all of them are State of the art and for Commercially interesting. I the satellite the quavo one was launched with the help of space x on the most recent resupply mission to the international space station which was contracted by. Nestle spacex is best known for the falcon nine. Which is a reusable rocket. That is floor in more than a hundred times. Since two thousand sixteen eighteen eighty six has managed to push rocket launch into space commercial especially ahead hugely compared with what was able for. And they've done that both by reducing the price substantially. I mean you're talking factors two of three. I believe if not more compete. For instance united launch alliance so price and then the technology. I mean you've probably seen these The strap on boosters or the fist stage from the from spacex coming down independently and landing on barge. Like half as. What happened yesterday for our our rockin. that no one else has been able to solve those problems beautifully so they you know that they've progressed. Shooting compared with what. I understand that nasa was i will too and compared with many other corporations so does show the benefits that good cooperation. If they see the commercial made they can go and develop things that. Are you know really competitive button much better than competitive compared with peers. So that's a real positive. This new technology of being able to launch rockets. And then bring them back down to. Res has made the business of space cheapo leading to more competition. My previous rocket launch from the cape was adult. was a An atlas five and it was carrying the The qb fifty cubesats so european Fifty tube set project. Qb and had are inspired to us. So i told them And ill mosque. Head and spacex had two weeks before for the first time successfully landed the booster rockets back on the ground and suddenly the atlas. Five people who i sink is northrop grumman Were saying we're going to spend time now investigating had bring our boosters back in safely as well and we use them in which used to cost so it can stimulate the existing competition to become better as well. And i think that's that's a good thing For everyone Sodas stimulating as well to the existing sector while the privatization of space technology is not near growing. Competition has led to more difficulties in the industry. Some of the negatives or one of them is is some. What's being in the news recently with jeff visa else's company which is co of origin suing Nasa and spacex for launch contract. Because you know their opinion win their proposal wasn't treated equitably and at one level you look at that and say well it is really important that a A selection process e honest and transparent. And you know. Pick the one that he's considered by the panel to be the best one now. Other people might disagree with the panel but if the panel is doing the best i can what decisions. So you're just doing well. I shouldn't mischaracterizing but You know that sort of lawsuit can be very negative. Because sometimes a large company will sue a smaller rival that has better technology and a better product to make them bankrupt. I'm not suggesting necessarily large two hundred risks there. Misuse of the you know the commercial and legal plainfield industry professionals have also been questioning if it is appropriate. The company's ah leading the way rather than countries issue is that i see us. That does a un treaty. The so called curious. Treaty peaceful uses of outer space treaty. And as you probably. It's the nation states that are the signatories if excited australia's signatory the united states. I think crush are and china. Very many ups and the thing is also a liability convention. That's associated with.

"You can filter it. You can set up an email. Where when a j. crew dress comes in and size three that's read that's in the pattern comes in. We'll send you a tax so we made that those folks who are on the you know the secret that was out about thrift for those people on the fringes. We made it so that everybody else can get in on it and amazing. Last year alone thirty-three million people in america purchase secondhand clothing for the first time So it was. It was interesting. Everyone was locked at home and focused on their health focused on their homes focused on saving money They started to look for alternative ways to shop and do things. And i think resale in general was a big beneficiary of that from from trying to get a sense of where the customer's going from a marketing standpoint from you just being an executive that wants to keep staying sharp and understanding consumer. How do you think about culture. How do you think about cool. How do you think about ultimately what we're saying. This consumer demand or the emerging thing that's going to trigger consumer demand. How important has this been to. You has a gain as a youngster that was that something you cared about or did that rogue because you were more operational when we talk about this and you just filter through your cycle especially setting eight years in this company like it's such a big factor brand and culture so underrated by operational math. 'financiers have you think about that. And what was your personal journey. Did you grow up kind of the path or did you have to learn it and respected more along the way. Yeah so about everything. I learned about being a student of culture. I learned from richard branson. So before i was at threat op. I spent seven years working at the virgin group and started a bunch of businesses. They are was evolved. Starting to bunch of businesses there and i brought a lot of those learnings to threat up and culture is i always think about it and it's like the three c.'s. Culture is it's complicated and it's can be controversial. I focus on the complicated part meaning. It's hard to get your head around or put your finger on any one thing at any one time when you're trying to be relevant from a cultural standpoint in in meet people where they are and talk about topics and get involved in conversations that people care about so the way we think about it on the team here is there small culture and there's big culture and small culture is when somebody on the threat team reads in the burberry annual report that they're burning clothing that they can't sell and we we take that little that little moment that little bit of information and we turned it into an open letter on instagram goes viral that small culture. That's little things that are here and there that are under the radar or sun'll or don't appear to even be cultural. What's what's sort of appears to be less cultural than burning luxury products in some obscure field somewhere but when you put a light on it and put it in the context of your business in your values and your customers care about it gets gets some legs and then there's been culture so we recently did a collaboration with our dominant who's designer on gossip.

"Welcome back once again, , see the outcomes, rocket , podcasts where we chat with today's most successful and inspiring health care leaders. . I really WANNA. . Thank you for tuning in again and I welcome you to go to outcomes rocket dot health slash reviews where you could rate and review today's podcast because he is one outstanding individual and healthcare is name is Dr Rajiv Kumar he's the president and chief medical officer at Virgin Pulse during medical school he realized that many of the worst health problems we face as a nation diabetes heart disease cancer hypertension. . Et, , CETERA. . I related to the collective unhealthy lifestyle, , and so he has pledged to make a difference in this industry. . He's done and as a frontline physician and now through various different companies, , some amazing things and so what I WANNA do is open up the microphone to Raji to fill in any of the gaps of the introduction and then a so we could get into the podcast. . Reggie welcome to the PODCAST. . Think saw glad to be here. . So Rajiv, , what would you fill in in your intro that I that I left out? ? I think that was pretty comprehensive. . Just, , a little bit about virgin pulse. . You know what? I ? think that may not be familiar name to a lot of folks on your that are listening to your podcast. . We are an employee wellbeing company. . We work with large employers all around the world, , and our goal is to help them activate their employees to lead healthier lifestyles which had to kind of go around the healthcare system a little bit, , and go direct to the employees and figure out ways to motivate them to inspire them and to help them sustain behavior change over time, , and it's not just about healthcare cost reduction. . It really is about how do we help people be? ? Healthier, , happier and more productive at work in their personal lives. . So that's really what our mission is. . That's beautiful and listeners for those of you who haven't connected the DOTS virgin pulse. . One of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group companies. . So you know with the gentleman like that behind something like this and and Rajiv as part of the executive leadership team, , you can imagine some great things are happening. . It's an exciting time for us. . We definitely are inspired by Sir Richard Branson leadership in his philosophy is if you take care of your employees, , they'll take care of your business, , and so we're trying to empower employers to take better care of their employees. . So strong, , and and you know it's really interesting that you guys are tackling this employer perspective of the entire health career equation because costs are soaring and aside from labor costs, , it seems like healthcare cost is oftentimes double digits in that front. . What are your thoughts on what should be on every medical leaders agenda today? ? Well, , I'm biased but I think it has to be a behavior change remember too often looking for a magic pill or magic device or something to kind of stem the tide of rising obesity, , diabetes and heart disease in our country and at the end of the day, , there's so much. We . can do to actually change people's behavior a lot of what we're facing as a result of our diet, , our physical activity or lack thereof the stress that we have in our lives just how we how we treat ourselves and how we don't take care of ourselves, , and so I think it's not necessarily a hot topic I. . Think it should be and and I wish there was more focus on it is the perennial that if we can change behavior, , we can prevent a lot of disease and we can produce significantly greater outcomes and Reggie. . What would you say right now at at at <hes> Virgin? ? Pulse. . Is an example of how you guys are improving health outcomes. . Well, , I think we really tried to think outside of the box I think traditional health interventions and and health and wellbeing platforms have largely been ineffective and they've been around for decades. . So we sat around and we said what if we took a different approach rather than making people feel like they're failures rather than telling them that they're sick what if we actually make them feel successful what if we make them feel good about themselves right off the bat what would that do for self esteem for their motivation and for their ability to change. . Most of what we see in our industry is a heavy focus on screening, , and so employers asked their employees to take health risk assessments and do biometric screenings and so forth, , and the problem with that is they take a health risk assessment tells them you're sick. . You know you have high risk, , your unhealthy needs to do more change your lifestyle, , get your biometric screening results and you have high blood pressure. . You may not like the results that you get back and that can be very demotivating, , and so we've said is, , is there a scientist out there? ? Is there a behavior change model that focuses on success? ? We found a scientist by the name of Dr Bj fog out of Stanford University and Dr Fog is sort of a new guru of behavior change and he's come up with a behavior change model that he caused the fog behavior change model and it's very simple as model is is a formula to it is called B. Equals M. A. T.. . Equals motivation times, , ability times a trigger, , and so what he means by that is to get somebody to do a behavior that we want them to do or they want to do. . First of all, , they have to have the motivation to do it. . Second is they have to have the ability to do it, , and a third is you have to trigger them. . To trump to do that behavior and too often in the in the kind of behavior change space, , we ask people to do things that require either too much motivation or too much ability. . So we say something like go to the gym four times a week and exercise for sixty minutes. . Each time you go that takes a lot of motivation and some people may not even have the ability a really know how to do that where to get started so forth so Dr Fog says, , well, , motivation is hard to change. . Your motivation waxes and wanes on a daily basis on an hourly basis, , we can't really change somebody's motivation that easily what you can do is changed the behavior you're asking them to do to make it easier. .

Why Dr. Kumar is Changing The Wellness Game

"Welcome back once again, see the outcomes, rocket podcasts where we chat with today's most successful and inspiring health care leaders. I really WANNA. Thank you for tuning in again and I welcome you to go to outcomes rocket dot health slash reviews where you could rate and review today's podcast because he is one outstanding individual and healthcare is name is Dr Rajiv Kumar he's the president and chief medical officer at Virgin Pulse during medical school he realized that many of the worst health problems we face as a nation diabetes heart disease cancer hypertension. Et, CETERA. I related to the collective unhealthy lifestyle, and so he has pledged to make a difference in this industry. He's done and as a frontline physician and now through various different companies, some amazing things and so what I WANNA do is open up the microphone to Raji to fill in any of the gaps of the introduction and then a so we could get into the podcast. Reggie welcome to the PODCAST. Think saw glad to be here. So Rajiv, what would you fill in in your intro that I that I left out? I think that was pretty comprehensive. Just, a little bit about virgin pulse. You know what? I think that may not be familiar name to a lot of folks on your that are listening to your podcast. We are an employee wellbeing company. We work with large employers all around the world, and our goal is to help them activate their employees to lead healthier lifestyles which had to kind of go around the healthcare system a little bit, and go direct to the employees and figure out ways to motivate them to inspire them and to help them sustain behavior change over time, and it's not just about healthcare cost reduction. It really is about how do we help people be? Healthier, happier and more productive at work in their personal lives. So that's really what our mission is. That's beautiful and listeners for those of you who haven't connected the DOTS virgin pulse. One of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group companies. So you know with the gentleman like that behind something like this and and Rajiv as part of the executive leadership team, you can imagine some great things are happening. It's an exciting time for us. We definitely are inspired by Sir Richard Branson leadership in his philosophy is if you take care of your employees, they'll take care of your business, and so we're trying to empower employers to take better care of their employees. So strong, and and you know it's really interesting that you guys are tackling this employer perspective of the entire health career equation because costs are soaring and aside from labor costs, it seems like healthcare cost is oftentimes double digits in that front. What are your thoughts on what should be on every medical leaders agenda today? Well, I'm biased but I think it has to be a behavior change remember too often looking for a magic pill or magic device or something to kind of stem the tide of rising obesity, diabetes and heart disease in our country and at the end of the day, there's so much. We can do to actually change people's behavior a lot of what we're facing as a result of our diet, our physical activity or lack thereof the stress that we have in our lives just how we how we treat ourselves and how we don't take care of ourselves, and so I think it's not necessarily a hot topic I. Think it should be and and I wish there was more focus on it is the perennial that if we can change behavior, we can prevent a lot of disease and we can produce significantly greater outcomes and Reggie. What would you say right now at at at Virgin? Pulse. Is an example of how you guys are improving health outcomes. Well, I think we really tried to think outside of the box I think traditional health interventions and and health and wellbeing platforms have largely been ineffective and they've been around for decades. So we sat around and we said what if we took a different approach rather than making people feel like they're failures rather than telling them that they're sick what if we actually make them feel successful what if we make them feel good about themselves right off the bat what would that do for self esteem for their motivation and for their ability to change. Most of what we see in our industry is a heavy focus on screening, and so employers asked their employees to take health risk assessments and do biometric screenings and so forth, and the problem with that is they take a health risk assessment tells them you're sick. You know you have high risk, your unhealthy needs to do more change your lifestyle, get your biometric screening results and you have high blood pressure. You may not like the results that you get back and that can be very demotivating, and so we've said is, is there a scientist out there? Is there a behavior change model that focuses on success? We found a scientist by the name of Dr Bj fog out of Stanford University and Dr Fog is sort of a new guru of behavior change and he's come up with a behavior change model that he caused the fog behavior change model and it's very simple as model is is a formula to it is called B. Equals M. A. T.. Equals motivation times, ability times a trigger, and so what he means by that is to get somebody to do a behavior that we want them to do or they want to do. First of all, they have to have the motivation to do it. Second is they have to have the ability to do it, and a third is you have to trigger them. To trump to do that behavior and too often in the in the kind of behavior change space, we ask people to do things that require either too much motivation or too much ability. So we say something like go to the gym four times a week and exercise for sixty minutes. Each time you go that takes a lot of motivation and some people may not even have the ability a really know how to do that where to get started so forth so Dr Fog says, well, motivation is hard to change. Your motivation waxes and wanes on a daily basis on an hourly basis, we can't really change somebody's motivation that easily what you can do is changed the behavior you're asking them to do to make it easier. You can change the ability to perform the action, and so the idea is if you take a behavior like washing your teeth and you break it down to the smallest tiniest thing that somebody could possibly do like floss one tooth and you ask them to do that they can actually do. That very easily, it doesn't take a lot of motivation is very quick to do, and if they do that and you celebrate the fact that they did it, you can help them build what we call success momentum, and then they're going to feel better about going to the next step and try something harder and so in our entire approach to behavior change, we break behaviors down into their simplest most basic action we ask people to do that would trigger then and then when they do it we. Reward them make them successful. We give them social status. They might get some kind of points or some kind of reward, and then we ask them to do something harder the next time around and stuff feedback loop that builds up momentum, and it changes behavior in a very sustainable way in a very habitual way, which is really the key to behavior changes creating habits.

Class of spacecrafts that it is can carry a up to about five hundred kilograms Half Italian effectively and they the the idea is that you you ferry it up to about ten kilometers or about six miles altitude under the wing actually of the seven four seven. A something I didn't know is that central sentence. I think this might be standard across the whole range of a a spare pilot underneath the wing which was meant to be able to carry a spare engine Ogle. I did that actually. And so that modified to carry the rocket. The ideas is fly up in the in the jet up to this height and then the rockets released its. I think the jet tilts upwards to release the rocket the rocket than funds. It's motor in a way. It goes up too much. Higher altitude of course with the horizontal real estate needs to get into orbit so everything went brilliantly apparently set including the the initiation of the ban. They they press the button and the rocket fired. But as you said some anomaly shutting down. We'll hear. I'm sure about what what happened virgin the Virgin Group of companies overall the not actually connected except in any in any of the night but certainly Virgin Galactic Richard Branson's other pet a pet occupation. They've been incredibly tenacious with keeping going when things have not looked as other working lot. While they've got over huge hurdles another suspect that same ethos probably permeates virginal but even though the two are actually not connected. A Virgin orbit will will.

capital Bloomberg's Vonnie Quinn and guy Johnson spoke with Branson and social capital co founder and CEO Chamakh poly happened tia to discuss the venture Richard how did this meeting come about I know that you had been in talks with the likes of Saudi Arabia and possibly other players as well he pulled out of those after the death of journalist of all can show G. for example I'm not brought you to this meeting explain the origins of this investment well when we said we couldn't go ahead with the Saudis I decided that I would follow in virgin galactic to profitability myself through through the virgin group and then I got a call from some math who said that he was keen to have a look and he went to see space people spent some months looking into it and I'll let you carry on from there well I mean I I've been an admirer of the business from afar and then we had a bunch of mutual friends who were early customers so I was always wondering what's really under the hood and when I got to see the business I was pretty floored quite honestly about what they built and the quality of the business that will become and so it took us nine months but we got here and you were going to chairman of the board of one hundred million dollar personal investment as well Sir Richard did you talk with other funds did you look for other factors in Asia for example or in the Middle East no we we yeah as I said I mean with the the the we did have the deal from the Saudis that that was not possible and if we were to to to actually take this public us sells it would take a long time so I think the the synapse approach seem to work very well for us to math was this the loss roll of the dice for you my understanding is that the fund would have had to return investment money in September rituals verify this is B. nine months in the jazz station it was it was you were coming in of a fine way I don't think so you know we'd met more than two hundred companies over many many countries over the last two years it did take us nine months to do that diligence required to really get under the hood and understand what they built in to feel comfortable across all aspects of the business could we have done a another one sure could we have invested in something else yeah but I think that we found the absolute best company something that'll thrive in the public markets and frankly something that's going to capture an enormous amount of consumer interest giving the average person a chance to own a bit of space and I think there's frankly nothing more exciting than a should the average person is going to be a space when is the first flight going to be less fun now let down what's happening at the moment his way of removing the whole operations in New Mexico and and that's what the space for his where we're moving out rockets that wait removing all space ships that were moving up of the ships that then we'll do a few final test flights from New Mexico in the news in the new situation and then I'll go out and then and then we'll the public will go up I'm not going to give a specific date because of the I'm told I'm not allowed to bets wait with you know we've had two very successful flights into space we recently we've made five astronauts the first five bass notes to be made in America since two thousand nine so we're we're in up to fourteen years of hard work getting this far we feel we're on on the verge of something very special that is very exciting because you specialize in sub orbital flight slightly different from Jeff basins outfit and also in almost a foot they're looking at it's like the other segments of spacing like fifty six miles above the earth and three times the speed of sound which you have no hits you did say that you'll go up in twenty nineteen with you if a if a brave test pilots that ready to say to me they they've now tested the Croft per through and through I will I will go up when they tell me to go out how many customers have paid for a quarter of a million dollars what's up to now so we can we close that out booking people five years ago because we had a six hundred customers we got a two million dollars on deposits since the flight test flight we had two and a half thousand more people saying they want to come in and you know it all research indicates that the there is a very large number of vehicles is a this is an incredibly capacity constrained market just servicing the customers we have we'll take two two and a half years once you convert some of these twenty five hundred people the first three or four years of operation is authority mostly spoken for okay but to me just kind of I'm gonna try and kind of off to either said what Richard said I mean it's on nail down a little bit more detail when this is all going to happen is the other any Coles is in the deal is struck with Richard about when that first flight has to happen no the model that we are operating from the operating model around which were building the business shows that we're gonna be in commercial operations within a year in the first half of next year is when we'll start to see the really ramping up of customer flights of revenue generating flights we expect profitability and need it two thousand and twenty one and it's a business that frankly should achieve real scale by twenty twenty two that was Richard

Right. But I don't think that was everybody. No it wasn't. And you know, certainly, I mean, I remember now looking back on it. Periods of time where my dad worked two jobs to make to make that dream work. But for some people it did I mean, there was definitely a middle class at some point in time.
