Why You Should Diversify Your Revenue
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about why you should diversify your revenue. So let's think about this the when you first started your first business acs right or when you started selling CD's how did you think about your different revenue sources and when did you think about diversify? Let's start there. I didn't think of different revenue sources at that young of an age. But what I realize is just having all your revenue coming from one thing especially when it seasonal or could go up or down or you may have one or two hours whatever the reason may be is your income can get hit really quickly, and for that reason, you should diversify your revenue stream and even if you're an agency like. Mine or Eric's make Eric you have agency what services do you provide? Let's say paid media there's SEO conversion optimization etcetera. And do you have clients who pay you for all of those services though it's diversified? So yeah, there's a chunk that goes let's say fifty sixty percent goes to pay maybe another twenty percent thirty percent goes Seo and the rest is miscellaneous. Exactly. So even in your business, you can have multiple revenue streams like if you're legalzoom, you can charge people for setting up their corporation. You could also charge them for renewing their corporation. You could also charge them for adjusting the corporation or dissolving any corporation. You can also charge them for getting your website up because once you set up your company domain name a website, there's many different revenue opportunities, and that's how you should think about your business once you start generating some income, I do think would choose to hear your thoughts on this. Eric. But I don't think you should versa your revenue stream. If you're making very little to no money, you just need to get going with something. Yeah a mutual friend of ours Andrew Wilkinson runs tiny capital. Now, he actually started with an agency Meta lab and we talked about this on the leveling podcast a couple of weeks ago and I liked the way he breaks down. If you think about it, the agency is a great business or let's drop shipping type business are great launch pad or starter businesses to go with, and once you get it going, then you should think about diversifying. So when I get it, going you feeling pretty good. Maybe you're generating a healthy lifestyle for yourself. Maybe you're taking home a hundred or two, hundred, thousand a year where he can cover your expenses then. You should think about diversifying because the other thing I'm recalling right now is I think about my friends in the restaurant business and some of them right now I see them complaining on social media and they're not able to do anything right now and even if they make adjustments, they put all their eggs that one and I think it's really important once you get one thing working you take care of your own expenses. You start to think about other revenue sources. So when something like this happens were talking about the economy right now you feel insulated and you can be patient with the way you make decisions because if things start to like shit hits the fan on one thing, you're going to impact the entire time and you can't make sound decisions. Totally agree. So look right now whatever you're doing you know start thinking about ways. You can diversify your revenue stream and when you think about diversifying your revenue stream, would I want you to do is think about other very similar light items in which what can your existing customers or current customers also buy from you versus what new customers yet attracted by something new you ideally want stuff they are existing customer base can buy because that allows you to grow faster. Yeah. The final thing I'll add is Look one step at a time I think it's too easy to compare yourselves to the billionaires or you know the Decca millionaires out there and it's just look at your journey. It's one step at a time with again. Once you get yourself taking care of, then you can start to think about other revenue sources don't try to do too many things at once neal's guilty of that I've been guilty of that. Sometimes, we're still guilty of that but you know control what you can control, take it one step at a time and I'm not saying be lazy be short term. Have Urgency but long-term just

It just impossible. How are you doing it? Well you know we like I impossible. Is there I love that old Mohammed Ali just a dare. I I mean everything seems hard when you first start like when I had one kid I thought that was really hard when an kids. Really hard and I've got four kids I'm training for the Olympics and I work. So just gets easier right they take care of each other you don't have to do anything. Still far so wrong it's just you. You start to learn how to juggle really well, and somebody's always up in the air. That's kind of how it goes. You know you you dropped the ball sometimes and that happens, but you pick it up and you just get going you can't again like you just have to have a little grace with yourself and kind of just be able to roll with the punches a little better.

How would you describe the toll? All those dives have taken on your body over the course of thirty plus years in that was really well said it is definitely like an accumulation of just being beat down the water at thirty five miles an hour 'cause everyone's like, Oh, you're going into water but water feels like concrete at that kind of speed and obviously it took a toll on. My neck, I thought for years I just had tricep issues and come to find out probably a decade after it started that it was all coming from two vertebrae in my neck.

Properly diagnosing it I. We didn't know that's what it was i. all my symptoms were in my arm, my neck and has never bothered me, and so we were somebody and and this is it's very common..

Is This The NFL's #MeToo Moment?
"Can you give us a sense of the build up to the publication of this report? So there's been a lot of drama swirling around the Washington football team, but suddenly started to get all of these dots that you could start connecting. There's a lot going on within the front office. That really doesn't add up firings in retirement in July in the NFL. Rarely happening tonight. We're! And we're too high level personnel executives who were abruptly fired and Alex Santos in Richard. Man were fire. No reason was given as to why they were fired. Then today, longtime radio announcer for the Washington football club Larry Michael announcing his retirement, he spent sixteen years with the team, the man who had been there the radio voice, he abruptly retired without any sort of official comment from the team, and he started to hear this buzz rumors flying about a potential bombshell report on Washington's football team and owner Dan Snyder. This is absolutely taken over social media with speculation running rampant then by Thursday afternoon. The Washington Post dropped the story. There fifteen women who went on the record, alleging widespread sexual harassment within the Washington football organization that spanned just about Daniel Snyder entire time that he is owned the team, so these were women who works across the organization in marketing and ticketing and finance in there were also two female reporters, one who formerly covered the team for the Washington Times and Rianne and Walker our colleague from the athletic, who also went on the record to accuse one of the men who had? had been fired of sexual harassment as well. It was the sprawling account as you mentioned fifteen women accusing sexual harassment in Washington. Can you summarize some of those accusations? Yes, so it was a lot of the very classic cases of sexual harassment things from making lewd comments about women's bodies about their breasts about their rear ends about the the clothes they were wearing to very overt sexual comments, propositioning requests to go on dates, just a lot of overall inappropriate workplace behavior. Behavior from superiors directed at female employees, and it did not seem to be a secret. Some of these women who went on the record with the Washington, post talked about how the other people who worked in the organization knew about it. They talked about it amongst themselves. There were places in the building where women were advised not to go. Specifically, there was a stairwell that had basically transparent stairs and women were told. Do not go there because there were men who. Who would stand underneath that and look up? Their female colleagues skirts all of these things that are blatantly inappropriate and wrong and workplace environment, but had been persisting for more than a decade, all fifteen of these women went on the record, but one of the few who allowed her name to be published is a woman named Emily applegate. What was her experience like working inside the Washington Organization? It was miserable it really most people know times a comment on my appearin. Screaming at you for something that you, it's not your fault. And then somebody makes a comment to you about what you're wearing and it just snowballs from there. she cried at work regularly, she felt belittled, imagined us being called stupid on a daily basis, and then also almost in the same breath being hit on for your appearance. It's a miserable work experience. Experience to the point where she no longer wanted to work there anymore and no longer even wanted to work in sports, and we should note that Emily applegate's former boss Mitch Gershman who was the team CEO at the time both denied and said he didn't recall conversations referenced by Applegate, telling The Washington Post quote I can't comment on something I can't remember. But Lindsay what actions has the team taken in response to these accusations from emily applegate, and the many other women, well many of the men who were accused in this story, all ready been fired, and we're kind of fired in the process of the Washington Post. Reporting this story, the team can say that has taken measures to address this because some of these accusations date back to the early to mid two thousands, so some of these people no longer actually work with the team and then some of the people. People that had new allegations have immediately been fired or left the team. They've started their own investigation. They hired an attorney Beth Wilkinson. The name might sound familiar over the last several years. Wilkinson took part in notable cases involving Hillary. Clinton Brett Cavenaugh and Michael Flynn and she told us we can confirm that our firm was retained by the team to do an independent review of the team's culture policies and allegations of workplace, misconduct and Daniel. Snyder and his wife sent an internal email to everybody who works organization to. To apologize for the culture, the statement saying in part, the behavior described in yesterday's Washington Post. Article has no place in our franchise or society. The story has strengthened my commitment to setting a new culture and standard for our team, but without specific apologies to any of the employees into these women, and there have also not been any public apologies to the two female reporters who were not team employees. The team has not publicly addressed them as well

I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today we're GONNA talk about five alternative ways to promote your content in two thousand twenty saga I I? One is zest. That's Z. E. S., T., I S. so I mentioned this a couple of episodes ago, but zest is a little known basically promotion to especially. If you're doing marketing business related content, you can put your content out there i. think you can pan the CBC basis, but you can use promote your content number two most people. People don't do this and I. Don't know why I don't know if you do eric, but we've been using adds a lot recently for content, it works out really wellness, super cheap, and it drives a ton of traffic funny enough. We started driving pinterest at traffic to our content that has affiliate links, and we're getting a positive roi so cheap while I mean any ads are arbitrage I like. Oh, you're arbitraging, but that's like anything so anyway, but usually to fill. It links as hard to make a positive Roi right, but. Or so cheaper to say, this is great while number three, you can do to Boola out brain yet to boone out brain these. Are you know the little I? Guess content recommendations you see on the bottom of like CNN and all these other big website so those I've seen a lot of people may at work I personally haven't made it work before so anyway you can test it out number four and this one works like a charm i. do this all the time, but very few people cop me and I don't know why I push notifications same anytime. I have contact I collect. Push notifications, subscribers and I'll do blast out and I kid you not like I can get. Get seven ten thousand extra visitors to blog, plus just by being a push notification, and you can go to subscribers dot com to sign up for that, and then the fifth one fifth one would be twitter actually actually I don't think people utilize twitter, enough or just leave it at that, but I actually see the same people's promoted tweets over and over, and that does like the branding does affect me like I. Was Andrew Wilkinson from tiny Houston that you want to sell your business want to say like I. keep seeing it over time like that's kind of embedded in me now, so twitter ads I think it's definitely worth taking a look at number six is a bonus. If you're in SAS. Software or agency YOU COULD USE G to to promote your business capterra is another option that. These review sites basically give you an option to promote what you have going on or. Promoting content, but you're promoting your business, so that's a bonus that doesn't really fit at number seven. Another bonus doesn't fit for all of you. Is Start collecting phone numbers on your website like you know how you collect email? Start collecting phone numbers. We're starting to test out texting people whenever released new content and the click rates are through the roof, the unsubscribe rates and people saying stop the taxi also through the roof and. And early high, but after the first one that you said, the unsubscribe rate is drastically slowing down, so it gets better after the second third for tax and people like it, but sending him text messages every time you have new content we're finding that works really well.

And you know we'll make a decision about how it's working out on a quarterly or annual basis whereas I know people who went similar businesses in her basically staring at their data. You know twenty four seven obsessively digging through the data of other businesses. They're worried about whether things are going. Well or not I think just slowing down decision-making process and looking at the businesses on a monthly or quarterly basis has helped us a lot to make better decisions and to give her C. SPACE. And that's hard. That's hard for certain types of personalities totally and so we're doing this podcast in two thousand twenty three or twenty twenty five What will be different for tiny witter's strategic decisions that you'll have to make a in the near future? I to be honest with you that that would have the wrong answer. We don't really think a lot about long-term planning or where we're headed to me. I'd be happy to know that we've continued to buy more great businesses that are CEO's employees are happy that you know more profitable and we're growing and that you know I still don't have you know investors. I don't answer to anybody except my nice quiet life in Victoria and spend time with my kids It's a pretty pretty simple thing. But that's ultimately what I'm looking for is having a good life where I work with. Good people and solve interesting problems. Dry Cleaners actually spoken a bit without any reckons. Do about how remote work is really going to enable private equity or the rise of this model is yeah I mean I I think the weirdest thing about finance is that they sit in offices together wearing suits and working fourteen or fifteen hour days. Because you know when I started learning about private equity I thought. Wow this must be really complicated and when you look at it from the outside it seems that way but the end of the day. I think private equity is actually very very well suited to remote work. It's almost every single thing happens in private equity is able to something that you're able to do remote We rarely meet people whose businesses we buy in person. You know occasionally we will. Obviously if we close the label. Find him out and spend some time with spend lots of time on the phone but almost everything we do. We do remote and I think that I hope that all of these people who work in Durham Blouses They will eventually get to work from home. And you know be diversified all over the world because you know it's a very a modulus industry with a certain way of thinking about everything Very old school. So I hope it evolves over time but for now I'm very happy to compete against them and have this unfair advantage. Only last question that will get you out of here. You mentioned you don't have a meeting And you try you try to have zoom meetings as possible and And have a lot of free time like Warren Buffett. So where do you get the most leverage on your time in terms of? Where'd you want to be spending it? Well often I get. I get a whole bunch of emails every day from people who wanna Jam and ideas or they just one cat and I yesterday of people I'm very extroverted so it's really different for me not not to set up hold and I've just rise every time so many things can be done and that if I'd say yes to everything I ended up of miserable and have no time to work and so you know big emphasis on try. Try to do this. And I go through periods where I am actually extremely busy and I'm on a whole bunch of phone calls and meetings traveling stuff But what I really try and do is ensure that I have three to four quiet hours a day so I haven't morning full of meetings and stuff but I have some time to contemplate. What's going on look at what's going on in the businesses look at deals and make better decisions and I again like I really think comes out of tickers and business so what I mean by tickers stock ticker but for Your Business. Hey He is metrics. Customer acquisition cost are tracking all these numbers all the time constantly. I find generally results so I try not to try to put blinders on and not look at too many numbers or details from businesses on a regular basis. And then try and keep my caballo three to four. You know busy hours a day and you know to varying success right now. I'm to a period where I'm on a series of calls most mornings but I'm always get to Warren. Buffet Open. Calendar it's a great place to disclose a our guest has been Andrew Wilkinson Andrew. Thank you so much for coming in the past episodes.
"wilkinson" Discussed on Venture Stories
"Gloss and find quiet. Fishing hole with ample fish were no one's really paying attention and there's a couple other sleepy fishermen so a lot of the businesses. We own are not sexy. They're not super crazy. Innovative NOT REINVENTING THE WHEEL THERE. Gene kind of sleepy going good basic things Like a helping people find jobs or helping. Connect designers in share worked for feedback. I you know. I'm very interested in the podcasting space but I do think it's a bit of a gold rush and so we're trying to figure out whether there's an opportunity for us to participate or not we're really excited about subscription podcasting specifically so we've worked with a bunch of Friends of ours just for fun to help them. Monetize their podcast. The subscription as opposed to advertising and some of the numbers that we're seeing here pretty staggering where he's podcasters businesses are super high margin. And they start to look like the world's best business You know we've got Podcasters who work with with you know two employees and one of the one of whom is like a part time audio engineer and they can make you know over one hundred thousand dollars a month recurring and growing twenty plus percent a year with a few people. So it's quite that's quite an interesting Mary how And I wrote a medium post about that about how I think. Howard. Stern is ripped off by serious. Howard Stern's only making ninety million dollars a year. He should be one two hundred a year so anyway. That's a space. I'm super excited about but honestly I'll look it almost anything as long as I can understand it. It's at a price and it's something you know within our circle of competence. I think we can add. Value and sleep may own an one thing. This is fascinating. Thank you I personally come from a background. National Works Across in London UK one trend that Of this to me in those markets as is lots of people building suffer able businesses that genuine yengeni quite valuable That probably perform like local Relations because of that style outcomes. Do you think there's an opportunity in this geographic ab trash as well as you know the the single service considering anywhere that must've who says businesses eleven foreign Outside of the US as the punchline has but yeah. I mean. I'll look at generally when I think about investing outside of the US. I mean it's different traditional private equity Let's say they're buying a manufacturing business in Ukraine. Right there's a lot of Risk around you know what the rule of laws like and what local permits and all sorts of regulatory issues there for us if I buy business in the Ukraine and less It's staying in the Ukraine. Most of the businesses. We operate on the Internet remotely and so I would buy a great business located anywhere in the world. As long as it can operate we can move it to Canada or Or keep it in a country with strong rule of law and good regulation and that kind of stuff so I don't think a lot about that in terms of the Internet enabled services. I think you can build great businesses in that space but it just seems really hard to me so you know anyone who has to be responsible for thousands and thousands of contract employees to deliver a service. I think it just gets really challenging over time and you can see that with a lot of these kind of UBER FOR START UPS. Where hey we're going to make a marketplace where you can get a car wash on the street in ten minutes or last by a team of people or they're going to clean the house or whatever I think those can be good businesses in a small market. But I really wouldn't want to run one personally. I just think it sounds like a headache. When wants thing that A defense now than you take on a kind of hacked to the valuation question. A little bit as some of the businesses in the At enduring brands coca-cola's and the very long serving businesses in software cycle rats. Much faster and in something might says some secular I know Generation of self has was in many ways unbundling zillow providing a specific use case. Seamy hearing for particular industry Now this more generalized does like anti who is disrupting that fits wife so must seems like there was a specialisation and generalization era. Is there The equation is do you still say opportunities to do your very specific Occasions of suffering businesses in industries or was like Going to Distraught those Valuations you you have to have a business that is going to survive the facility is. Can you get your money back in a short time? I'm always I'm always saying how do I get my money back? In five years you know Growth or organic or whatever whatever this is already doing that's generally Thinking about it Because you know the risk in internet businesses that you really can only predict the next six twelve months realistically. Nfl really exceptional Internet business. Maybe you can brick. Thanks five years but so many businesses that we look at they have something that can sweep out from under them Like a wholesale Reporting problem where one of their pl line items can just suddenly blow up so for example you know a business that had been gets fifty percent of its traffic google. An Algorithm can change that be hello buyers paid paid customers via Google or facebook. That cost crack position can go from one dollar to ten dollars And so I try and look for businesses. Don't have that level of variability. I sent it in a tweet. The other day You know great business should be like New Zealand. It should be energy independent. It should be in the middle of nowhere where no one's paying attention You know it shouldn't half the ship. Everything in a lot of these businesses starts to look like countries that are you know they have this. Extreme reliance on other people being benevolent to them and train. Avoid those businesses. You you were interested in inboards job. Boards was is that sort of strategic to serve the other Family of companies are. Do you think about strategic things that helped make a make overall family valuable. I don't really. I don't think about strategic things really. You know the one. It's very tempting right. The way that the you know you call our business. Conglomerate and glory it is a family of companies are holding company that owns a whole bunch of companies. In the way that conglomerates often fall down as you go and you buy all these great companies and it's very tempting to start saying things like hey all of these companies do accounting. Why don't we centralize accounting or hey all of these companies Pay For cellphones. Why don't we have a procurement team up in head office? That does all the cell phone negotiations and saves US money and very quickly you start to become. This synergy is nightmare. Where all the? Ceo's feel and annoyed and all the companies are kind of doing each other favors say to our CEO is they're under no obligation to help any of the other companies unless it makes sense for them to do that. I've just really avoided that there are exceptions. Like we started a business called double up which is a marketing business focused on podcasters and startups and it was born out of. We had a whole bunch of podcasters who are asking us for help to grow their business and we were just kind of passionate about it and wanted to help them. And then we also had. Within our portfolio we had tons of the companies that were too small to have a marketing team but needed help with marketing and so instead of starting a marketing department and we said well we'll start a new business called double and double up will need to sit on stand on its own two feet have its own customers but if it works out and if it make sense will also serve on our own businesses. But even that. I'm skeptical of like I'm always. I'm always worried about Senator Jack. If if you sit a few times now that you you hit stat of the few dozen you will soon. You're not necessarily building Year intentionally like like some have sit up but it seems like there's something midway one thing that As trying to be the first place this team look staff will join something you said. This is incredible. Sloth of town people Thinking about doing stat ups As if you could describe a little but the profiles of people that you might be looking to hire into your company's or you might be looking to co found businesses with MIT little Creation process looks like I mean..

Mickey Drexler's Formula for Turning Retail Around
"Welcome to inside fashion on the podcast. This week. We have a very special conversation with someone who has come to be known as merchant Prince of fashion. Mickey Drexler grew up in the Bronx working at his dad's company in the garment district and then carved out a legendary career working at Bloomingdale's Bloomingdale's and Taylor the gap and J. Crew. These days Mickey is working with his son on a new brand called Alex melon in his conversation with B.. JIO FS chief correspondent in New York. Lauren Sherman he shares his advice for young executives working with creative partners. Here's Mickey Drexler inside fashion. So Mickey thank you for being here happy to be here. Let's start from the beginning. Are Your parents or your parents in retailer apparel or anything that I My Dad worked worked in the garment business. New York City We grew I grew up in the Bronx and he had like a lot of other First Generation Jewish families whatever he worked in the garment business. He worked By buttons and piece goods for coat manufacturer named Jill Junior and my mom always worked. She was ill From Twenty eight years old she had cancer and passed away. Wait fifteen years later from a Being a chain smoker in those days no one really knew that cigarettes actually killed you so So she but she always worked as a secretary at the Y. M. Ha So they both worked hard. I had no siblings but I had seven cousins. Who Live down the St and three of my mom's sisters so as an extended family well it was the y m h a a young men's Hebrew Association? WHO's in the South Bronx Bronx? I went to overnight camp where she was a secretary for the summers At the camp camp because she worked it was affiliated with ym Ha and growing up. Did you think you would go into the same business. Your Dad was well I I didn't think anything as a kid I I only worried about. I worried about a lot of stuff. 'cause I was a worrying kid but I didn't really think about what I do who I always dreamt that my dad would be a successful. Because that's what he talked and dream about he talked about always Wanting wanting to kind of de successful he never was by any measurement Successful at what. He did He worked for a kind of a boss who you know. I heard about all the time who didn't treat him as kindly maybe As he might. That's true a lot of bosses and he wanted to be. I'll use the word big shot. Now this is in the sixties in the Bronx and So I didn't really know what I wanted to do. I had no idea it would be the garment business But I always worked starting at a young age my teenage years going because he kind of forced me to go into work with him on holidays on Saturdays Saturdays so I went to work for the coat. Company ticketing coats a Aaron's the shipping carrying samples to the other people in stores etc.. Did you know Ralph Lauren. Growing up because he grew up in the Bronx right. He was on Masha Loop Parkway. I was Barnes Avenue He I went to high school at Bronx sites across much Lou Parkway did you do you remember when he hemas coming up in the late sixties. I remember him exactly. 'cause I always followed people who did things that I admired. I was at Bloomingdale's started Sixty nine working at bloomingdale's and I remember Ralph. I didn't know him personally. But he came in selling selling wide ties to the men's department and it was like revolutionary and so I didn't know him but you know because I worked at Bloomingdale's I A new people who bought ties from him. So I always looked at. Ralph is someone. I admired immensely. What he did and at Bloomingdale's did you do the retail program? I know a lot of the department stores used to have these great training programs. Very lucky. In the sense first day was in housewares. I couldn't stand it I was trying to look for pots and pans. I knew nothing about it and I was Kinda lost. And the second day They moved me and this is my second day of my right official career. They put me into a department of junior department was called the Lexington shops. I was the buyer I actually went to the market every day. A No supervision really knows days and I. It's changed so dramatically you didn't have someone breathing down your neck. Tell you what to do so there I was twenty three years resolve. Whatever and I had a department Lexington Juniors whose only in fifty nine th street and I was in charge of buying all the merchandise. I had a really nice boss Stanley Stern. He left me alone. I had two or three really hot items and you make a lot of money on hot items Elephant Pant by Arthur Arthur. Bell was my hottest pant. The world's a cuffed big elastic waist pants every day. I was rewarding like crazy so I did that for six months because Barbara on jr was on maternity leave. Unfortunately she comes back and there. I go to the branches so I did that for a while and then I was promoted back In to fifty ninth street Iran. A woman's swimwear our T shirts and sweaters. My first buying job I they say I was like. I did it really quickly and again there. I was pretty much on my own as most of us were learning the business. I was very fortunate. I had a woman that he katy Murphy who passed away a young age. She was a fashion Shen director and knew more about the business than anyone I knew but because she was a woman She wasn't the seal. She could have positioned set set. She just got it and I was very lucky to have her as I kind of her pet. They treated me like oh go out with Katie went to Europe together. We bought together and only in hindsight that I realize that the fundamentals of what I even do today I think was set in place by Katie. And I going on these trips and we've been buddies so if I had an issue in work I ran to Katie. Not My boss. What do you think of this Katie? Anyway think of that and you know you don't realize you're learning so much everyday idle huge learning curve and so I did that job for a year and a half then. I was promoted moded into the boys area and then maybe it went up to the branches again. Then I quit and you said you had a couple of hot items. What what what does that mean? And how did you identify them. Especially back then when you were just starting out. How did you know that something was gonna hit? I think a lot of what people do. Who is kind of a DNA? Instinctive nature not nurturance much. I'm not sure but I always like I used to sell When Wilkinson Sword Blades came out I was in eighth grade? I was working in the garment center. I was young I was as a kid and I used to get a supply of them. They were really hard to find. They were the best razor blade. Hello in the sixties and I bought supply and I told them to when I made deliveries. I Have Wilkinson Sword Razor Blades. I didn't think I was an entrepreneur. I didn't think anything I could. Maybe maybe make some money and as a young child I money. My father's will obsessed about money because he never really made it. And I think I picked picked up some of the habits of wanting to have some safety and security so that was a little safety and security to keep handle drawer with my cash in it. I saved it. I never spent. It was not much to spend on very impressive. I wish I had a drawer with cash while it was like ten dollars dollars wasn't like a lot. So why did you quit bloomingdale's and what did you do after that. You know it's interesting just to step back end up working at Bloomingdale's I had a summer job at a NS. Now macy's and I fixed them up with a friend of mine I loved. I summer there so I was ready to be hired and I fixed them up with someone. I went to school with and they offered him five hundred dollars more in salary I did now. I didn't think about I was furious. I fix them up. They offered me eleven the offer him eleven five and I am crazy. Furious and You know I didn't have mentors like everyone has a mentor today. I couldn't talk talk to my parents about that but I was pissed off and I interviewed at Bloomingdale's and decide it and it was huge important decision in my life if the second most to that date businesswise and So I decided to work at Bloomingdale's they offered me eleven five. I wasn't negotiating a lot of great negotiator gator salaries and all that stuff and I went to work at Bloomingdale's. Ns would have taught me a whole different way of doing business. Sale Promotion They they were very successful But you know it's funny. So that kind of infuriated me any. Why'd I leave Bloomingdale's I got to the point where and you don't have to make a living and I said this is and once I moved up a little not a lot. I start to think about two things one. I don't love it as much now. I had the boys area and I was supervising but more importantly I always wanted to have really important in regard for people. I worked for Maybe it was my expectation and I realized that you know forgetting what titles are that. At at some point you know people get promoted without earning. The promotion and big corporations was like a huge corporation was big bloomingdale's relative to what I thought of his big back in those days and start to realize put your time in to a degree if you're older than me or whoever you may get promoted moded and I looked at the surroundings and who was moving up and I I I wanted to change someone. One recruit someone at macy's recruited me add Finkelstein who was then the chairman very charismatic guy. Recruited me I left and I stayed at macy's year and a half why because I was obviously looking for something I wasn't getting in a department store business. My last last movie in a Department Store Business was bloomingdale's was owned also a NS federated department stores. They recruited. It'd me back and I went back the stake but again I didn't have the freedom of I'll just do whatever it wasn't like everyone to start up. I you know. In those days who did startups who can raise money to pay the rent and I went to Ns for four years. And I said that was

"wilkinson" Discussed on The Current
"What do you say? The Prime Minister has spoken to this issue publicly. And and I think that has addressed the issues that you raise. Certainly collaboration. Cooperation internationally is incredibly important. We all recognize that everybody in the cabinet recognizes that we need to ensure that we're working together to address address the fundamental issues of our day and and certainly the fundamental issue of our day from an environmental perspective is the climate issue minister. We leave it there. Perhaps we'll speak to you again from from cop all right. That would be great bye. Bye Thank you. Jonathan Wilkinson is the Minister of Environment and climate change. He was in our Ottawa Studio. Catherine Abreo is the executive director of Climate Action Network Canada. She is at the Cop twenty-five summit in Madrid and that's where we reached her. Hello hello you have a chance then to to listen to Minister Wilkinson talk about Canada's climate. Change policy what do you make of his comments. Well we have in the last four years. Seen seen some really critical foundations for climate action laid in Canada in the form Pancanadian Framework on climate. Change Clean Growth Minister Wilkinson. was there for that as a parliamentary secretary to climate change of the time. It's great to hear that he's committed to following through with implementing the over fifty policies laid out in the also great to hear him reiterate the commitments made in the election platform to increase candidates and Bishen on climate change by legislating that net zero by twenty fifty goal and thinking through Or a vicious Paris pledged for twenty thirty. There were a couple of pieces missing. From what what he had to say however that I was disappointed not to hear The principles which is a conversation around economic diversification in Canada He spoke a fair amount about investments in clean tax to make sure that the fossil fuel industry is reducing emissions of it's production and that was it. I didn't really hear anything about investing in clean technologies outside of the fossil fuel sector Nor did I hear about investing investing in sectors that are not necessarily clear tax but are low emitting sectors that we know we need to grow as we move into an economic future that protects people people on the planet. I think it's important to figure out how to Bake Canada's oil and gas industry less greenhouse gas intensive the near term for sure. And there's some interesting work happening to do that. But the reality is that Canada's oil and gas sector is currently we be single largest source of greed cows gas emissions. It's twenty seven percent of Canada's emissions and the amount that that sector accounts for in our GDP declining so it's clear that we also need to be thinking about investing our time and resources into building other sectors get. A condom is up. There are a lot of Canadian delegates from civil society groups attending the summit. What do you think that they want to hear from Minister Wilkinson when he arrives what you just talked about route or something else? Huge representation from Labor group health groups faith groups indigenous organizations and communities. I think what we're all waiting. Thank you hear minister. Wilkinson tell the world is that Canada is on track to deliver a more ambitious path. Pledge in twenty twenty twenty twenty is really be Europe ambition for the Paris Agreement. It's the moment that the accord Welcomes parties back to the table to take stock of how they've done so far lar- And Ratchet up the ambition of their targets. Because what's currently Articulated under the Paris Agreement is GonNa take us well past three degrees of warming warming and the UN released a report last week but Makes it very clear that if we exceed three degrees of warming we really won't be able to live in the ways that we're accustomed to on this planet so at the summit itself. What are the main items that countries are trying to agree on so yeah we always have this kind of slit at UN climate negotiations between the really technical elements of the negotiations than those more political elements negotiations on the technical side? A big part of what. We're we're trying to hammer out here. Madrid is to finalize the rules for what's called article six of the Paris Agreement that part that deals with cooperative is back in his in between countries to reduce emissions also could deal with carbon markets An example that's relevant to Canada is the Quebec California's cap and trade crates. Where Quebec primarily is funding emissions reductions in California then county where their own emissions reductions so article? Six of the Paris Agreement is what would allow Canada to count that towards our own domestic inventory. Why is that such a sticking point because we know what happens when we get the rules for these kinds of systems wrong we have an example With the clean development mechanism under the Kyoto Protocol. The last big international climate agree that Where we are the rules wrong? And it's significantly undermined the level of ambition that country we're taking on climate action and it resulted in a lot of additions reductions There weren't actually real being counted So we need to avoid that and we also need to avoid some of the human mkx rights abuses that the that the Bad rules the clean development back another by two so with article six trying to get it right. We're trying to make sure they're strong environmental. I mental integrity and that he would end. Indigenous rights are respected. Now we know that we have there is still the Paris agreement school to limit future warming to one point five degrees Celsius above pre industrial Austria levels. What do you think about his own emissions reductions targets? How confident are you that the federal government will be able to reach those we ever at work cut out plus? I don't think it's worth being naive about that. Not Being said everything looks impossible to you start generating the momentum that allows you to do it. So we had about a decade of inaction on climate change at the federal level and Canada. We've now late some really important groundwork And really I am interested in what we're going to do right now to make sure that we are able to build on our targets and to actually reach those targets and and part of that from my perspective means Putting in some accountability mechanisms that keep us on track to our goals. We're now in this world of one point five degrees Minister Wilkinson invention to which kind of surprised by because I think we're we've accepted that global goal now is to hold warming about safer level of one point? Five degrees be when tells us that means we have to reduce emissions by seven point six percent every year for the next ten years until twenty thirty from my perspective. We have if the technology now. We know it's feasible to do the only thing we've been lacking is the political will and we need to get to a place in Canada where all political parties hardy's understand the urgency of climate change and are contributing meaningful solutions to the problem. And I think the Canadian election made it clear that Canadians want want their political parties to have furious planet plans and to think about how they could work together on this issue and now it's time for politicians to move into a space of providing. It's a really courageous leadership. Starting some what might be some tricky conversations about the future of Canada's economy and job market But doing that in a way that is really inclusive.
Using Your Sonos Speakers in 'Stereo Mix'
"Hello Jim Leo LaPorte. The Tech Guy. Good Morning Leo's thanks for having me. Thanks for COM. I'm a I'm a bit of a Luddite and leftover from the olden days of Great Stereo audio and I have discovered the sonos amplifier wire which I have hooked up to a couple of clips speakers and it sounds great. I've got my multimedia setup all tied up which includes a turntable by the away nice. Well you know one of the reasons you use a Sonos. Instead of say an ice Macintosh too damp is because the Sonos is Internet connected. And so you can control it with your phone. And you can stream audio from a variety of music and other kinds of streaming services. So it's virtually anything ever recorded. It's kind of cool. I'm a huge Sonos Fan. I From years ago I have an ungodly amount of sonar equipment and you're smart to put on the clips because as a really great classic speakers. Yes they are. Yeah Yeah. Plus they're headquartered in Indianapolis Indiana on. I'm kind of a halfway hoosiers so jim this is clipped. I guess they're still around are they. I mean I remember the old days of the giant wooden enclosed. Cliffdale make they still make all that stuff they do. We're going to pay dearly for it. I'd love a pair of base. Yeah you could you get the Low scholars and stuff like that but But they also do now the kind of more modern US be or New Bluetooth speakers and they do all that but the ones I have. uh-huh are just hardwired so very nice. Yeah that's a that's A. That's a nice combination. Yeah so here's my dilemma. I was watching a movie the the other day and it's and on the credits. It said Stereo mix by and they went. Oh No it's GonNa hire a guy to do a stereo mix mix all you surround. Sound is partaken over the next thing. I know you're you'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA cut. You can cut me out. Somebody ready for doing a stereo. Mix Stereo Mix. That's fantastic so I kind of I think this is a good thing. So you're right most movies now now and are mixed in five point one or seven point one they're in dolby encoded And that's because people with fancy homes theaters might have all of those and speakers. You know six seven eight speakers but most people don't and often I get one of the calls I get a lot is. I can't understand dialogue in a movie because when it's mixed that way the assumption is you have a center channel dedicated to dialogue a speaker just for voice. And when it's done that way and you do you have the proper speakers you can understand the dialogue but when you mix that whole thing down to just one or two speakers often the music the sound effects are so much louder the dialogue. You can't make out what anybody's saying so I think this is a response to that effect. I think this is something new. Not Something Oh yeah I don't think this is is a A A T beginning of the end for old stereo mixes. I think this is something that they have actually do it. I think for for a while. There was this brief period of time where everything was five one and it wasn't a good thing for people who didn't have all those speakers so I hope I hope this is a trend in the positive direction right now. You know we have a lot of listeners in Hollywood so if you're in Hollywood and you're making movies or making TV shows be aware of this. Not Everybody has that fancy Dan Dan System. You've got in your house or your studio remixing area or Edit Bay. Most people don't have multiple speakers so give us an ice Hicks there. There was a time when when Stereo in movie theater was actually cre- channel on the right time ago center channel left. Uh right for a long time. I had this argument got Wilkinson because I only had two speakers and I love that too. Nice bike you too nice speakers on my TV. And I loved it but it did get harder and harder to hear dialogue dialogue and other things were going on. Now you know Scott says well you need the upward firing at most speakers to. I don't want that so in a way. Let's say thank you considering and keeping in mind Stereo

"Work begin is there a moment we can point to as the beginning of the history of precision engineering there isn't as a man called john wilkinson and you'll remember james watt who created the steam engine when the steam engine began talking about the late seventeen seventy s they were so inefficient they were almost useless basically you have two components you have a piston and you have a cylinder and prior to john wilkinson's invention you made a cylinder by hammering a flat sheet of on into a circle welding it turning it vertically and putting the piston inside it and hoping the thing that generates power but the cylinder made like that is full of bumps and dings and it isn't perfectly circular and says steam leaked all over the place and in terms of officiency the machine was effectively useless james watt was selling one of these she ins to a man called john wilkinson john iron mad wilkinson because this man was completely obsessed with the metal on he had an iron desk yet an on pulpit that he would read books on he had on boat he made an iron coffin for himself and he put it in his workshop in lyon it on stu jump out in startle visit he is indeed buried in that to this day under an on obelisk so he wanted one of james watt steam engines and saw this thing belching steam and said this is ridiculous i mean you don't know how to make a cylinder probably i make cannons and i make the canons by taking a block von and drilling a hole perfectly straight and true into it if you tell me the dimensions mr watt the you want i can make a cylinder for you which into which you'll piston will fit perfectly and so he did i think it was thirty eight inches diameter the piston was a little less than thirty eight inches and so the clearance between the two the tolerance if you like.
