"Not sure we love it when a heart hits the river because when he calls the check raise some of his range is going to be something with some kind of heart right. Yeah and that's your call. When he has a heart. This small raise might get called a little more often than a bigger raise. Would like if you just check. Shove the turn. I don't know if check raising now is better than check shoving now if the plan is to stick it all in on the river. I mean obviously the advantage of doing this. Is you win that extra twelve five when he has no choice but to fold so he calls you raise here and then he has to call it that but then he has no choice to fold on on the unelected rivers So you win that extra money. So i guess that's the argument for for check- raising small here like let's say he has something i mean. We didn't really mention his hands in his potential range. Let's say something like six seven with a six of hearts. Do we think he calls. When the river comes a queen of hearts and we jam. I do in a fifteen dollar. I mean he he will be getting a decent dish price. That's true. yeah. It's not such a bad price. I mean by the time he calls. There's going to be what sixty two in there and you only have one another fifty behind. Yeah fifty five okay. Well it's not a great price. Yeah really only. It's close to two to one. So yeah i mean. I'm not saying he should call with with just the six of hearts but I think that he would but he wouldn't now. So i liked this play because it's little greedier. It's actually a little greedier. If the plan all along is to shove shoving on the turn is going to work a lot more often or maybe not a lot more often but certainly more often than this little raise and then shutting the river yet. Maybe maybe the trick here would have been to bet an amount that gets him to call with a heart but gives them the wrong price to call with the heart and then shovel non heart rivers. I don't know if we can find that price though because yemi any raise you make on the turn. That's going to price him. Out of drawing to his flush pre going to set up a bad. It goes up too good of a price on the river Because we're just running out of chips right. Yeah maybe just. Maybe if we're going to make this move maybe we should just be jamming. Yeah but i don't hate it because you do win the extra twelve five those times that he calls this and folds on the end true. So there's there is a case to be made for for doing this. Cute little irresistible. Small check raise the price. He's getting on that check raise is like what is that another fifty thousand in there going causing him twelve to call. Yeah yeah he's getting a we. I wonder if i made. It just should've made slightly bigger. Yeah it's hard to tinker with those numbers because the bigger you make this bed the smaller your river pets be and the better price will be getting. Then that's true also. It's just hard to play this size..

"They claim to get their beer out to the people that wanted their beer. And you you you saw people get really really really scrappy with with what it means to run a business and you know adult ice cream trucks driving around cincinnati people selling your margaritas to go into like i. There were there. Were times where you know. I'm ordering dinner with my wife and we're getting you know cocktails in jars and were sitting. Hopefully this is awesome. There's definitely a couple of things that i hope. Stick around. think they were signed into law that they are going to stick around through this. I was talking about like excuses to get away from family. Gatherings can't come word worried guys but like seeing people adapt the way that they did makes me feel so much better about craft beer especially locally man. I don't know what other cities were like. I'm assume it's probably about the same and it makes me feel like that. No matter what happens. People can adapt really well crafted. Can i mean. That's that is what craft beers. Ballot is like this adaptation. This just what's about creativity innovation. You're in you're up against the wall. That's thank you as when you shine. Creativity innovation. So br brewers are artists. Let's i'm a scientist say scientists. You're an artist. And i think you know artist tend to have that imagination on how to do things that make things different than survival so not surprised by all that i think also cincinnati. We only lost yemi. And so i don't even know if that was covertly the places that i think there were. I'd have to look at my list. Actually i don't remember now the so rock bottom closed somebody else close to wyche slate but that was before. I still miss blank slate. Well he's still.

"And then on both sides everyone just kind of have to use those tools appropriately everything else you just leave to go down personality like an i was gonna say something also by that name issue because as the excuse that oh if you see two people on one has in india familiar with an one does not the odds that you can get along better with the other person with the name you know because the other person can speak. English cannot do their medicate. Oh that's what i was told. The reason why i wasn't getting a job was because i was using my name and they're going to assume struggle with english or they feel like i wouldn't know what i'm doing on people to communicate with the have you met me so that this is a hidden like this is what i mean by the prejudice. I wouldn't use the word racing. The prejudices vert. 'cause i don't even know if the who was saying these things things that they are being militias so that makes national sense so it's very interesting and another thing i wanted to mention was. I've worked in an environment. Where i had to like a call center and i cannot tell you the number of times p pool call and these are people of different origins just north american so they could be greek particularly and all. This person wants to speak with you and they'd be like okay. I can't say this person's name so i don't know i would the person's name every time i said it. This person for an i guess would be like god. Thank you so much for taking the time to see my name. Where are you from all from a name. I right from that. You built a report because you tried to save the name you dismiss the knee my very last point and this would be shrine goes a long way is really had the best conversation relationships of people that actually asked me. How do i pronounce your name. Help me pronounce it. And they kill the night okay. Sometimes they don't get it right but at least that effort goes along way. Thank you for that. Unless essentially what we're saying here is just try make assumptions in Dismiss things just because certain things look the way you want it to look like so presold thank you can i say. For instance. h u g. H how does it sound iq. I don't question it. I pronounce it tug. H you know cook. It is hugh. that's what i'm saying. Gee silent like now. I get it now. This is an excellent segue to what. I wanna talk about mask which is basically. How does one. Ben keep your identity in focused how we preserve that as we live in today. s for. But it's very important to know who you are. You cannot talk about your identity to others. If you don't know who you are to begin with and you might be in on african during and wherever you're from and that is a sense of pride but at the human level is that old you are and so for me coming in. I remember innovational coats. Because i have english middle name but i had no intention of using it but it wasn't because i was trying to be defiant. I was fine with my name. My name was shortened in candidate by some people. And it was struck into nigeria. Have the same same name. You and i could not because we wanted the name but that's what people do. Yeah and i think it's simple because the simple answer is you have to know who you are because you will know what is important to you because you can have two nigerians and in the same place on what is important to them how people perceive them could be could be shipped by different things. So maybe you're okay changing your accent to sound like something. I'm trying to think of where it hard line would be apart from the name thing..
Getting Women Excited About Tech with Facebook's Caty Caldwell And Jessica Odeyemi
"This is the first of a series of technically two hundred talks or roundtable conversations. Where it's not just a one on one. But one onto plus. And i am very excited about this one because we have miss jessica odor yemi once again from ibm technical product manager. And we've got Ms katy call technical program manager at facebook. Such a pleasure to have you both here to night so i just wanna start with one question for each of you in. Why don't we start with katie. Katie what's your first memory of being excited about tech my first memory of being excited about tack. It has to be. I think in my freshman year computer science course. It's like an introduction a computer science. I just remember. I had started at princeton as a chemical engineer and i was just like i was in my first chemistry class. I was like this is like watching paint dry like this is not like the chemistry. I know from high school and i was just really excited about this idea. Setting chemical engineering. But when i took my first computer science course everyone had worn me before the course that was going to be so challenging difficult and i just remember just like enjoying every assignment and every assignment just felt like it felt like a puzzle. Felt fun and i. I felt like i was spinning. Just an inordinate amount of time. Just focus on by computer science work over my chemistry homework and i hadn't even got into sort of like the chemical engineering courses yet and i was like this'll make sense. Why by studying. Something that i am like. Great like begrudgingly. Getting through versus has studying something that i love so i just remember just being super excited about the next assignment and computer science like always wanted the next one wanted to do like the extra credit. I love that and jess unless you that same question. Yeah so let's see. I got into the tech industry per se a little bit later in life. But i remember the first time i was excited about anything. Simulated was an elementary school. When i found out I don't know if you've ever heard of them ike rube goldberg projects Like i don't know if you've ever seen a movie pee wee's big adventure. But at the very beginning he has all these contractions that connect to each other to do different things. But i kind of find out found out an elementary school. There was. We were introduced to the the concept of a rube goldberg project. In thought it was so cool. So i did something similar for science fair project and i thought it was the coolest thing ever As far as you know the tech industry goes. I think that happened much later in life for me. So that probably didn't happen for me until i was working and i think we've chatted about this a little bit before but i was working in the oil industry and it just occurred to me that i was out on the rate drilling wells and that was great but there was this whole other world behind what we were doing. You know software insistence. That was kinda powering. Everything that we were doing out in the field. So i think that's when i first got into Tech per se jessica. I did the rube. Goldberg is file. When i was younger. i've loved it. I went to the. I went to the national competitions. Like and since. I'm so close to purdue growing up so i would go to indiana. Just go see what the students The cooking up so had logged. Rube goldberg did that. When i was like what is the most extravagant way to crack in a like the prices so so member game mouse trap. I love that like that.

A conversation with Joaqun Niemann
"Let's get back to joaquin neiman. Did was there. Anyone who would have been the person that you would have been the most nervous to be around either to have played with or walk by on the range. Or if they're watching you hit balls on the range you'd have been nervous to be around. Who someone that that at that age would have major nervous riley. Yeah probably playing around here. I think i think the first time i saw was the moriarty was late north third or four tournament which Experience i remember. I was playing great. I was almost the last ruben sunday. I mean i could hear that. There was not only ten groups front but i could hear everything that's note and the people following him by think. Sergio helped me a lot to like. Get that pressure off. You know like lie. Know him. Before i turn pro. I will to play with him before on unknown how good they are also know that i can like i can be here. You know. I was actually at that memorial that year and i remember watching. Ut off on the tenth hole once. i'd never seen you hit a ball in person and it just stuck out to me immediately and do on tv. And i'm sure you hear a lot about how low you hit the ball and i'm just curious. Has that always been the case. And is that something that you know you. You were aware of growing up or any special reason. Why would hit the ball. Low and chile. Or do you think about that at all non. It was is fine because at the beginning that league union a lot of confidence. When i'm like a little bit nebulous son. I need to hit the way. I'll heed that show on a new. I remember when i start being professional a using. That showed that now during the time. Yeah i've been using it less. I'd i'd be using more hydro. I'm just trying to hit farther on. May i have that show that. I feel really confident when a heated unease yummies late may go to That's what i was. I was curious. And i was looking back at the highlights from when you won at greenbrier every now and then that forty one foot apex driver shot comes out and i was. I was just interesting because of how different the game appear the direction. The game appears to be heading seems to be you know track man. Everyone's telling you hit it high. Hit hi hi. I'm wondering if you know as you were transitioning from amador into pareo if anybody came along and said hey you could hit it this much further if you hit it higher or but i think what you just said though it's interesting how you've you've prioritized accuracy. But i'm wondering if if that has evolved at all over the years. I remember when i played. Infirm courses The bogus along. Way i Relate to two seventy and he runs it. Depends on the fairway ferry. Sometimes when their firm for example greenbrier they allowed so sometimes is not that short by yemi normally. I've been preferring. yes More with hydro. Sometimes i got bunkers around when he died. I'm like are now monday. Just gonna he'd been the hydro and the beginning. I was really. I don't know if i was a little bit more secure or no but early. I prefer yesterday that low one being more coffee when the on knowing that i'm gonna hit the airway but now he's more like a feel like i feel better on the course right now and i just. I just thought that showed that like more. And he's been pretty good lately. So i like it do you feel. Where do you feel most comfortable. Like firm and fast conditions or when when it softer yeah. I like away. When when he's firm. I know that. I don't hear really really high with the also with the iron. So it is hard to me to stub on own the green when i when i'm lega 5-iron their firm 'cause i don't get it like really high but yeah i mean like bain with firm conditions. I think is is more fun on unb lehner green or heating widgets from the hundred twenty yards is is is good to see that like bouncing around the great in those more fun. Yeah i mean. I find it interesting you know. Obviously when it's firm your drivers going to run out a lot more but like you said it's hard to hold greens. If you hit it low and i i wanna talk a little about royal melbourne in the president's cup. You know you have it's interesting. You didn't have the most success at royal melbourne yet at the same time at olympia fields this year which was very firm and fast you finish third. And i'm i wanna talk a lot about role melvin. But first off. I would say. Did you learn anything in particular from that week. That helped you in later situations when it is going to be firm and fast. Yeah more than of course it was more like the atmosphere. Unlike the like getting that amount of pressure it was one of those way i mean the whole way was really intense. On the course roy ever was unbelievable. I mean i think he's one of my favorite right now. Unease eighty s a lot of strategy. I remember ernie was standing us. They don't in many drivers. You gotta The ball on the right side than it was more. Legacy smart play yet was different course. i remember in chicago Driver everywhere every bunker was laid three or three. Oh five three. Thank ari so i was trying to cater scarlet side. Ken he was going straight. You which is which was really good that we
"yemi" Discussed on Post Show Recaps
"Back to it. You know the the episode begins with a flashback and it's echoing Yemen has kids. And Echo in Yemen had stolen crackers from shed because they're hungry, they're starving and a non comes in the. Echo says like you gotta confess that you've stolen even young echo is defiant says like it doesn't matter. He was hungry Yambio was hungry. I this isn't bad. She's you've no excuse. You've sinned the fact that he's hungry doesn't matter. Go ask God for forgiveness confess. And there's the priest twos legs are behind the curtain. Maybe. Style. Mugabe. Are. This is the same church that Yemi an echo will eventually inherit looks like very similar circling certainly certainly looks like it. I don't I don't mean to breeze past it but I wanNA talk about that in conjunction with one of the final images we get in this episode. So let's put a pin in it. Young Echo in Yemen are established. Let's talk about them when we see them again at the Burien the episode. We then open on an I because of course opening tonight I it's poor Mr Reco- who is just having a hard time site is back. Echo has apparently been like this for a couple of days and he's like Charlie what happened to Mr. Echo. Before or after the polar. Deal for it. It is interesting that we sorta like Yada Yada through a saieed and the Kwan's returning. Are we assuming that they've just huffed it back today considering that they have no boat well, they say that echoes been like this for a couple of days now. So a couple of days past and sight said it's GonNa take a couple of days to get back and I. Think like the timing on that bears out from when Sawyer and Kate are going to come back from Hydra Island as well. So. I see no problem with that I. Think the fact that a couple of days have passed works for me. Yeah. I mean do you think that obviously you assume that site you but also disclose what happened or do you think he would be fairly close to the chest about the fact that the super son killed in other and also the others robbed them the boat Yeah nobody tells anybody anything on the island so you got imagine he just kept that to so yeah, I, can imagine stay. Locked tight in. Vault. And I think like there is there are trust issues with the people who are here we'll talk about the vacuum of Jack. And in this episode count. Jack Elam. WHOA. That's terrifying. Oh No. Stick away you don't want anything to do with that. you know. How that has impacted things is something worth exploring we get everybody leaves the tent. We start getting like this montage to remind us of the ECHO ARC of childhood of shooting the man to save Yemi, becoming Mr Echo Yemi dying on the on the tarmac. All of that, and it leads to a ghost arriving in echoes tent. Let's listen in number one..
"yemi" Discussed on The Corner
"Was a proactive thing that we put together to address stereotypes in recently wasn't a hot button topic. We did not do this to get paid. We did not do this. Get Rich. We did this because we saw that there was something happening. That was not being addressed in pro wrestling. Now exist so happens that the things that we've had been talking about. Have Become the spotlight of this business so now, yeah, the next wrestling was stereotypes. Yeah, we built this platform to have these stories told it was never really about us. It was always about everybody else having the opportunity to tell these stories and feeling comfortable to tell them. Yemi Kale hosted. But in a about us, we like honestly we're just to pro wrestling. Fans who've got a platform. We've created opportunities for people to be able to speak openly. I didn't do this to get rich. A lot of things you know I, WanNa get rich obviously, but a lot of things I do. It isn't to get rich. It wasn't get rich quick scheme so the next pro wrestling's stereotypes. It's GonNa. Be Big! It is because. Everything that we've talked about is like coming all at once and I hate. That had happened like this. But Man I hope that more people are comfortable now telling their stories if they weren't before, there were wrestlers who said no to us because they weren't comfortable. Well Shit. Now's the time. Now hopefully now we're living in a place of discomfort. Yes, so hopefully whenever you know, there's some semblance of normalcy in this country where we can have a gathering of people say this isn't a group chat. It's be really weird. Seeing some people that have been accused or people that I worked with, or it's GonNa, be really weird. Everything's GonNa. Be Different when we're back in public, but when we do get the opportunity to do this, I can't wait. because it's needed, and it's almost like like. When I was on the new day, I guess it was almost like a healing session therapy as much as it was venting. We all need that outlet because. A lot of things that happen to us `specially as minorities in this country, and for me I can only speak from the perspective of black man in this country. Is that buried a lot of those feelings for a long time an even though I speak out against racial justice and social justice, and all these other things a Lotta, these stories I know Berry in the back of my head.
"yemi" Discussed on The HoopsHype Podcast With Alex Kennedy
"They know they didn't know they were going to work but they were bold enough. This will not give them a gun and then we have you know some of the greatest possible commercials ever like. I don't think those commercials will be talked. They just saw incredible united to see Michael Jordan Way and to see spike in in the way that he was as well as malls. I think you know it was just perfect. Puff it marketing. It was perfect. Timing and Jordan was obviously the perfect after her share one thing that Jim Hill and Scoop Jackson mentioned in your documentary is that Jordan created the blueprint for other superstar athletes when it comes to endorsements and marketing. I feel like that's a big part of MJ's legacy you know guys like Hobie. Brian Lebron James wouldn't have had the same endorsements and signature shoes and all that stuff had they not been able to follow that Blueprint would you agree with that hundred percent on? I don't think that's just a a damn thing. That's just confined to basketball players. I in my opinion he you know. Mj Is the blueprint for everything. I think where would we would we would? We have tiger woods would be having David Beckham. Will we have you know? All of these huge global icons who have had their respective like endorsement deals. I think that it all starts with. Mj All sorts of NJ and night. You know that was the blueprint and that was the foundation oviously within their within his respective filled basketball. Yeah of cool. It kind of like opened the floodgates for everything but I think just on a on a on a sporting level I think of a score looks to sort of like wall. They did as collaboration. And thought you know we can have an icon. We can have a figurehead and we can't have someone who of light we can build at business On I think that's what I think Nj and Nike or a great advocate for that. Yeah you get into the rise of sneaker head culture you show. Dj Clark Kent Collection of Air Jordans. Weeds Boxes Gatorade. I mean he had over a thousand pairs of Jordan's a million dollar insurance policy on his collection. And we'll get into you know that sneaker had culture in a second but what was it like you know seeing his massive collection and going there to shoot those interviews. Yes so that collecting. Your that wasn't caught can. That was a jump man busek. So he's out the trend and yet he he's a yeah he he's incredible. I mean his basement is basically like a museum. It's like a time capsule because it's just not sneakers. It's like you say it sweetie boxes. It's like gatorade. He's everything and I think hanging out with him and talking to him you know. He's he's pretty much dedicated his life to doing that. You know and it it's commitment beyond belief and he doesn't get stuff three. He buys everything I don't know how how does it. He's just a passion a- An answer of enthusiastic connector and I actually hung out with him twice I him twice and the first time was in housing trae in his basement and when I caught the gang with him maybe like two years later he'd moved to a bigger house. Any those accumulated more sneakers so the basement was like they go on. It's it's like a museum you know it is fascinating in those guys. Really take it seriously. Yeah you talk about how? It's an addiction in for some people. It's gotten out of control when we see people trampling each other and fighting over shoes or you know even murdering others for their shoes which you document It's clearly on out of control in those regards. When did that start happening? Where it really got to that level where people start getting killed and you know kinda getting crazy I think i. I think consumed by trace that back to sue of like eighty nine may nineteen Nineteen ninety. I think we all remember like sneak sneaker crimes of like the late eighties in the nineties and I think that was really well-documented with the sports illustrated tat. Ted Lonzo taste. You'll sneak will your life which He he talks about in the film but I I think the what the film will hopefully shine a light on is the fact that these things still happen you know. They weren't just confined to the nineties. I think the kids still sending Jordan on Ebay and then going to meet the people who they think who who want to purchase the sneakers and then you know. Violence is usual. Like incidents happen. And and I think it's something that has continued to happen. Given you know given how much these sneakers means people and in a. I don't know if that's necessarily GONNA change. I think they. They all stay as symbols and they are. They are in in in communities and I feel that either. That's necessarily going to change box. You start thinking about here in the UAE and watch this hacker Big You need a big canvas to jump into stuff. That's like socio economics like this. You know it's American policy. It's loads of other things that we didn't have the capacity to explore in the film. Nor did we ever have that intention to do but yet we just wanted to document the history of the Jordan sneakers and unfortunately the violence is Paul. A the secret history right. I mean you do talk to a mother who lost her son Joshua Woods because he was murdered for his door. Ends in. It's heartbreaking Michael Jordan sent the family a pair of unreleased shoes. As if you know that helps Does Not in. The mother was upset. She invited Michael Jordan and people from Nike to come to the funeral. But that didn't happen. Do you feel Nike Jordan. Brand have a responsibility to try to fix this. Because at the end of the day it is artificial scarcity yet. I I think I think his I think yeah. I think I spoke to a lot of parents. Martha's Whose lives have been changed forever as a result of like sneak of islands and I think that they will quite clear with the you know. They didn't lame like the Brian. They don't blame. George Nathan necessarily blame Nike. But I think what really agreed? The is the they just they won. They wanted the Brian to oblige. Take a stand and to speak out. And to sort of like condemn The behavior and condemn you know the sentence. How senseless is food for for those crimes to happen? And I think I spent a lot time with daisy and maxwell she ever really wanted she almost like an acknowledgement that this does happen and the what happened to has on is very real. I was there for a number of years with an I saw. That is the reality of senseless violence the something ridiculous So yeah in terms of like cope ability You know like Nike Hang on in kind of like in a people's hands in in tell them to rob sneakers no of course. I don't think that identity mass riot but I think ethnic knowledge man in a just to to to actually to to speak out into vocal anticipated like to to soak acknowledging condemn. I think I think I think that could have. That wouldn't have gone amiss in in in quite a few of these cases. Yeah I agree addressing. It could definitely help. I know you reached out to Nike and Jordan brand and they didn't respond to your interview. Requests Right Yeah. We did reach out to them because obviously you. My entry point into this film was to tell to tell the story a celebration of the sneaker a history of this league of like a definitive story the documents the life of the sneaker and you know there are people who The company now who would ever in the beginnings of the I wanted to talk to them but we just didn't hear back can like I said no everyone you also is going to be in your documentary.

Scaling an Amazon Business to 8 Figures with Fernando Cruz of Marketplace Ops
"Ladies and gentlemen welcome bouts the amazing FBI? Paul Kasey placed beef. You base. Tell us alone fats. A lot of what we discussed is one of the US particularly as well. Today's guest is no exception. As phenomena crews of marketplace ops and Pixel Fi- they supercharge Amazon sales with bronze by managing their accounts amongst other things. And I'd Pixel fight as other things as well so warm. Welcome to the show. Thanks man appreciate you having me so no problem so I know that one of the things you've done creighton eight Vega Amazon brand yourself in a very short time. Is it three years that you've done something five years three as okay? So this obviously Quite the achievement. So that's the thing I want to dig into today but I want to put the angle of surviving and thriving in in difficult. Times obviously wearing unusual times right now and I think it's not a bad thing to create anyway a business. That's robust right in good times but particularly with excellent now so Tell me the basic story that obviously eight figures threes. That's that's an impressive numbers. Someone the basics. How did you arrive at that? Yeah I mean obviously? It was with the caveat that it's not during cove nineteen does a little bit easier but Yeah I mean you know. The story is my business partner and I were best friends from college. We we'd come from Tech. We had like a a background in kind of like high growth companies and a Yemi we each put in. I think a twenty grand into the business at the time and And we tried building actually like our own shop vice store for several months and we realized like Oh man this is really really hard finding customers getting into buying our website and we tried that Friday for about five months And then you know well. We decided to do what we're running out of money is. We're like okay. This was originally our passion project. And we're like okay. You know screw passion. We just need to make money because like identity Ended up having to live with your parents again and And that was kind of like a last resort in so we kinda works. Well what about this like selling stuff on Amazon were were buying everything there anyways like? Can you even do that? we found a course online like donald it And honesty we just pivoted like we didn't even a ton of time thinking about it is like this current business is not working And at the end of the day we don't want to go back and move in with our moms and so yeah I mean we. We didn't look back. I mean we were definitely a pretty lucky at Are A. We started with four products at the same time. And so that helped US learn a lot. I don't recommend that strategy For people who are starting out. I think it's probably better to go a little bit slower but you know again. We were running out of money. We need to figure stuff out and we hired a coach right in the beginning. I think that was super super helpful Just because he was already doing forty forty five grand a month But you know we're able to make so many less mistakes I we still don't get me wrong but by having that coach in your corner Hey you need to get used to giveaways You need to order more inventory. You need to do this unity. This and really helped us like learning the basics in the beginning and Yeah it was. It was Super Super Helpful. And then maybe like our six seven product was just like a home run and it basically we. We had to borrow money from family and friends just to order more inventory to keep in stock and so it was kind of Cinderella Story to begin with Where the parties that we started with those first four it okay. We discontinued most of them. We didn't reorder Tanaz. We learned a lot of lessons of niches that were too competitive But we we had some that were. We'd one that was a decent success in ended up dying a few months later but it was like okay. This really proves the model and second in that first month on Amazon. We did more than like five months on shoppers. I combined in Zora okay. This really works and so we just need to refine how we're choosing products And so we really started focusing on that area of the business because we knew that would cut I control how are futures specifically on Amazon? Yeah and then we ended up doing a little over two million that first year and then once we hit that home run product. We really started expanding That product line in in really focusing in that was kind of how we basically got to the ten million. We definitely borrowed a ton of money from family and friends. Kinda help us again like Placing those peos air shipping everything just because we couldn't Get everything done is really sloppy to be to be honest. We kinda like Stumbled our way through it But those kind of a lot of the story. Wow Okay so that does really quite the interesting story. I mean So I was going to ask you about an the capitalization Because obviously if you're editing to billion dollars in a year you're going to run out the amount of money you put into the machine to start with but I just wanted to just go out to the store. I mean very funny because he's also always I've got a new because studying ECOMMERCE leader with my friend Jason Miles. Who is a massive shoplift by fumble and is doing very very well without and help sort of Amazon base people to a pivot? Some of that business I would say shall proviso instincts have the opposite conversation where you find it really hard. What was it about the you've found so tricky with just briefly getting into. Yeah so I think Good question so at the time. And you know we're thinking very binary right and so we came from tech and so you know the tech business model is very clear right. You raise a lot of money. Needed grow faster than everyone else. Which means you spend a lot more You every round of of equity financing you kind of a you delete. Delete Yourself And hopefully at the end like you're successful and then you sell a huge amount of money you get a percentage of that and you make a ton of money and we'd seen our and we kind of had mixed feelings around that light. You know you you. You're starting business to be your own boss but by raising a venture capital you now have a boss and you hear all these stories of these. Ceo's get moved out of their own companies and so we very early on mid the distinction of life we bootstrap this company And so basically means not taking out like for US equity financing and so we were comfortable raising debt and a very specific thing but we found was. We were afraid of spending a lot of money on ads to be honest at the time that we weren't like comfortable spending on facebook or even like Amazon or this before we're on And so we're like okay. Well the best way to do it is to to build partnerships in that comes along with their background like I was the head of sales before But yet partnerships and then our with blogs so like doing seo content and stuff but because we were bootstrapped. Only a finite amount of money to start with. I think at least for us will we've found is the time that it tasted get a blog from like zero to having enough customers to generate enough. Income is too long and we were doing this. Full time That was our challenge if we kind of found a a more hybrid strategy. Which is we figured out paid ads so we could actually generate more customers a lot faster than I think. That would definitely worked on shop but it is something that we weren't really comfortable with the time to be totally honest And I think that's kind of wire shop if I was doomed from beginning it may sound like a funny question to somebody when get somebody on his massively successful in areas to US why they didn't decide whether another one I think it's important to follow the reality of somebody's story and not enough interesting In soon reality now I guess what happened in this that you you turned your cash into cash again quicker than the model that you were trying to follow was gone it in and spice the yet trying to because I think fulltime you can't wait for takeoff right Tell me about the next question. Sorry bothers buys thing. You've obviously got the success in terms of the revenue so we have to dig into the details How much money did you end up barring that first year if I may ask question yeah no? It's fine courtship so we borrowed originally? I WANNA say I bought a lot. I think it was maybe two hundred two hundred and fifty grand And so yeah. We went to like everyone that we knew that was high net worth. I think it started with like thirty from one friend. Thirty from one of our parents. I think it was. My Mom. Ed's start with sixty and it was. It was going really well in. We aware introducing more products in that. Funding is if you if your products take off you need more cash again to keep them in stock in so they kept doing really well and so we just kept Compounding our problem in so we can refinance out one of those thirty I think for like a hundred I would say in the first year. We probably raise two hundred grand in that first year.
"yemi" Discussed on The Next Best Thing
"Think it's more appropriate to be like the series. They crazy. Yeah so here's what we have to think about. Here's when you break all this is down first of all we have to know and we have to kind of remind ourselves that this was for television presented for television. You know that way doesn't until you change the facts necessarily that cop for example. I'm sure he was not scripted. You know what I mean. He was and he even said at the end he was like look. I don't know if it was if that really happened. Not but I can tell you this much without the Without the information because they had no leads right couth case was called. They suspected her a boyfriend. At first they didn't know who was so we're not Where did the? As and come from again so they had found a an envelope at her burned-out burnt out apartment. It said like tickets to cats for a S. They didn't know who a s was they didn't know so she was trading that for the TV something like that weird transaction. Why I mean? That's not that they knew each other he worked at the hospital. TV and all Sunday the play no personal. They were friends or they well they were acquaintances. Yeah if like I know. Yeah and they live close to each other. I believe it. Do you do do you because you said did you didn't believe in ghosts. Last time I asked sunrise at never saw Yemi neither and I really want to. That's the thing I really want to believe. And all this stuff way actually. This is such a lame quick story since we've talked and now the buildup lame and quick.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy on jed Kim in for. Molly would. Some might consider domestic employees the original gig workers. There are a lot of similarities like intermittent income, and no real safety net is a problem that affects millions of workers like nannies caregivers and housecleaners the national domestic workers Lance is trying to change this. There's something it calls its innovation arm and DWA labs. It's bringing financial tech to domestic workers. It's new platform called Leah directs digital payments towards benefits for housecleaners. Marketplace's Lila Goldstein talked with one user about the platform, alleviate Mahia is a house cleaner in Brooklyn. Her son David is in the third grade and has a lot of school trips in always always he won. I can go with him. It used to be saying, yes, meant losing income. But last year, she went with her son's class to the prospect park zoo and still got paid thanks to a platform called Leah. It helps gig workers like her earned benefits. Like paid time off she pulls up the website on her phone Huma Boya plataforma. The leeann is the Mittel me contra Sania, she logs in chooses the worker option and sees a total dollar amount. It's money clients have contributed specifically for benefits clients select the client option find their house cleaners account and choose whether to give the platform recommends five dollars per cleaning this money can only be used for benefits offered by Leah then go toward or contracts. Didn't they eat thing goals will they be their Mahy is taken out life insurance and accident insurance. She also took to pay days off. Here's how bad stun when a worker reaches one hundred twenty dollars on a Lia. They can trade it in for a prepaid visa card like a lot of financial tech tools. Elliott automates something that can be complicated for workers to do on their own longtime workers advocate Pollock Shah helped develop the Elliott platform. What technology is really doing is in neighboring all. All of these multiple parties coordinating them taking all this transactions. Putting it all in one place, and allowing for the worker to be able to draw down those benefits, and it gives clients a more formal way to contribute to benefits Mahia is already comfortable communicating virtually she rarely sees her clients. She just text them notamment them excluding this. They huddle Yemi Leoneto soda. She gets a key. And they leave her money on the table at first Mahia was a bit embarrassed to leave fliers inviting her clients to use a Leah. But then she thought about all the other types of workers who get benefits oughta Mattingly. You don't think benefits you one the toll moon, though, that I don't know if you've seen us, they a whole ISM benefits us. She thought why not me, but you'll notice way at the net. The Goldstein brought us that story alita currently doesn't offer some really important benefits. No health insurance, no retirement plan. But as the gig economy grows. More workers will be looking for alternative ways to get the benefits. They need. And now for some related links. You may remember that Uber recently settled with drivers in California and Massachusetts for twenty million dollars. The lawsuit raises the question of whether drivers are fully employed as or just contractors the agreement won't end that debate. But it does that an average of about twenty two hundred dollars per driver. In those states NBC reports that the settlement amount is pretty favorable for Uber, which is trying to sign up. Its image ahead of an IPO. Uber has kept the number of lawsuits from drivers down by making it the default that legal disputes, go through arbitration, beware. The wrath of the rideshare driver though. More than twelve thousand have opted to go through arbitration now Hoover foots, the fifteen hundred dollars filing fee, for such cases and Gizmodo calculates that comes to about nineteen million dollars in fees for Uber.

"So he's got like a little bit of like he knows a little bit more about about the history of film than I do. And I was talking about the need for regulation that companies like Facebook gets you're what you're saying. Exactly. The right example of a company like Facebook is too big to just banned from the internet. Everybody uses it. Everybody uses it for different reasons. Okay. So what happens when when an organization or win a certain category of thing becomes too big to to to disappear the government steps in unregulated in order to protect its our citizens in order to protect us. The rate film ratings is an example of film was being made in distributed all manner of ways with no ratings. No no way to. Tell parents to tell families the the appropriate age for children to watch this. So the government decided it was going to step in. But what happened? Instead is that the film industry decided they would police themselves, and they said, you know, what we'll take care of this. We'll start reading all of our films. We're going to bring in an organization of people that are going to watch all of these films and rate them and make sure that they are appropriate for the right ages that I think because it's it's going to be one or the other either the government's gonna come in unregulated, which is it's bad for the these companies that want to continue to do what they do or the companies will eventually be forced to self police in which in which point they will start deciding the regulation rules that go into place. So we'll see how that goes because, you know, their major major companies making millions and billions of dollars and they're going if they self police. Their regulations are probably not going to be quite as protective for for the residents of the world. But it's better than nothing. And if they can provide something that something is I think government regulation we've seen what goes wrong when the government tries to step in. They don't understand technology, and they ask questions that don't matter or make sense if they were in charge of how the internet worked they would fail at properly regulating, if these if these major corporations that are dealing with our data could self regulate self police. Possibly there could be some good regulations in place that protect us while giving them what they want. See? I don't know if that would ever be possible though. That's the only thing is that there is no way they make the is. It's criminal what they're doing criminal. This isn't just like a movie that's gonna make my child set. They're selling are Jada. They're gathering data that they don't say that they're dealing with the terms and conditions are absolutely impossible to be able to understand in read through. They do that on purpose to it. And Yemi throw rule. They'll make sure that there's enough loopholes. So they can get what they want because that's what they want like in the end. We're all fallible too. When someone throws Little's noodles of money to me if I worked for Facebook which face Doug hires, everyone that's like strongly against that Nate hiring them. But that's what happens right, then they just give they will give even with the government. They'll give the government of whole bunch of money, which is what happens now every time regulations. The word comes up suddenly Facebook has donated a bunch of money to all of. These career politicians in they also step away from it..

The Bush legacy in the Gulf
"So US troops went to Saudi Arabia that pissed off a lot of people in Saudi Arabia, especially some of the more hardline Muslim player clerics because it was like, oh, these infidel troops are in Saudi Arabia. We should have had like Muslim troops and also like Saudi had been spending all this money their military. And then all of a sudden, they're like, wait even spending all this money, and you still have to call America. Like, what the hell have you been spending this money on then? So it it made a lot of people mad, including a person you also may remember Osama bin Laden who is very mad as a result at the Saudis for doing this and at the Americans. So you have that kind of kicked off that legacy. Right. That we know where that kind of ended or hasn't ended as the case may be you also have the fact that afterwards the US forces convinced Saddam to draw from Kuwait and go back to Baghdad so George H W Bush meat decision on purpose. Not to continue to send American. All the way to Baghdad to try to overthrow Saddam. He continues to do things like threaten the region and threaten America and just in general behave very badly, and because of that decision some people in the George H W Bush administration thought shit, maybe we should have overthrown him. A lot of those people also happen to show back up when his son George W Bush is then president, and they're they're they're like looks at I'm still there. He's hasn't gone away. He still behaving badly he still threatening the region and that in a large part helped lay the groundwork for okay now for real in two thousand three we're going to overthrow Saddam. And so that kicked off this whole world that we live in now with the Middle East in pay off. I don't know about that take on it. Right. Like, it is true that the George W Bush people decided, partly because George H W Bush had gotten them entangled Niro. To launch the Iraq war as we know it today, but they didn't have to do, you know? Absolutely. And I don't wanna lose sight of the fact that when George H W Bush was president some Hussein literally invaded and tried to annex neighbor rate. Like, what are you going to do? Are you just going to let him do that? This is an Russia. That's a nuclear armed power. Right. This was a country testing the limits of what it could get away with the US Marshall international coalition to stop the forcible annexation of another country's territory. Right. That to me seems like an accomplishment defending Yemi where people criticized Bush for Bruening sovereignty in Panama, people praise him for defending it in the Kuwaits. Yeah. I think it's really interesting to note that when he passed when George Hw past towers in Kuwait were lit up with his portrait and with Kuwait and US flags he is still revered and people name their children Bush. Like in Kuwait, it he is still seeing as this savior in a non religious sense, right? That that helped Kuwait get its country back. So there's a real lasting legacy there to probably the biggest and hottest to wrap your mind around accomplishment of George Hw, at least in my mind. This is my peck is the way that he shepherd at the end of the Cold War. It's easy for us to lose track of what was happening at the time when Bush came into office, right? The Soviet Union was disintegrating. The Berlin Wall fell in nineteen eighty nine right in Bush won the nineteen eighty eight elections came into office in January nineteen eighty nine. He was dealing with this massive transition in global politics where the state of Russia's we know today was emerging in lots of different Soviet republics. Like Georgia were leaving the country that they were part of the Soviets had nuclear weapons stationed in a bunch of other countries like Ukraine, for instance, which wanted to keep the nuclear weapons when it became independent which would. Been entirely different world. If you can imagine nukes being all around Europe, where the Soviets station them or central Asians in cases. This was a massive massive problem. Another facet of it was what to do about Germany to allow Germany to reunified we oppose German reunification or the terms that we sat for east and west to come together. Again, what do we do about NATO this alliance that was structured as an anti-soviet organization, but now the Warsaw Pact essentially, just disintegrate, right?.
Mexico Increases Security Presence At U.S. Border Near Tijuana
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from internet essentials from Comcast. Connecting more than six million low income people to low cost high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything. Mexico has put more police on the streets and Tijuana where thousands of central Americans are waiting for their chance to cross the border to the US. This comes a day after US border patrol in San Diego, fired tear gas at migrants were trying to cross the troll says some migrants were throwing rocks. And in a moment will hear more about that decision to use tear gas. I we go to reporter James Frederick n t one. Oh, and James you've been there for a couple of days. Now, what is the atmosphere like at this point? Well, it definitely feels and looks different today than it did yesterday. The first thing I noticed pulling up here is there is a lot more police around this government run shelter here in p wanna so. So I mean, there's basically a one block radius where there are dozens if not hundreds of Mexican federal police and some military here they won't say exactly what they're doing here. But it's pretty clear that they want to have security right here right outside the shelter. So another March cannot start and then talking with migrants. I mean, they are really thrown off after yesterday's events. Can you tell us more about that? What are you hearing from them? People are scared and worried after yesterday's events. I think it throws them even more into limbo than they were before yesterday's events. I spoke to this hundred woman elva inside the shelter today. Yemi in the men gonna disagree. The man then that the. So what what Elvis saying there is that you know after yesterday's events. She just doesn't know if she can continue, you know, it almost makes her feel like she should go home. She's very scared now, and she really has the feeling after yesterday's events that there's no way President Trump is going to let them into the country. And so she's really stuck in doesn't know what to do next. I mean, what choices do they have if people talked about any alternatives? Well, the first thing is they can request the Silom. And that's what a lot of them are doing, but that's not so easy and Tijuana's just walking up to the border and saying you want to request asylum since so many asylum seekers have arrived here at the border. There is a list you have to put your name on the current waiting on that list is more than a month. And that was for people who arrived before the caravan. So it's much longer. Now talking to other people in the caravan other options are to be smuggled across the border to find a more remote area. They might go into if they feel like there's no legal way for them. To get in. They see that as an option, and then the other option is returned home. But as we know lots of these people are facing, very serious real threats of violence and would put themselves back into very dangerous situations going home. In the meantime, President Trump has tweeted that unless Mexico deports the migrants the US will quote, close the border permanently. What sort of reaction is that getting in Mexico? Well, the the first thing is that it's really hard for migrants. Understand. What's going on? Things are constantly changing. There's not great access to information. They get most of their information just word of mouth. So it's hard for them to make a decision based on you know, currently, you're constantly changing conditions. De other big issue is that Mexico's government is changing this Saturday. And so there's I'm really getting the impression right now that the current administration, which is leaving just has no incentive to make any big decisions. Have make any big actions on. On behalf of the migrants. And so really we're just waiting for a new government in Mexico to see what decision they make. That's James Frederick reporting from Tijuana Mexico. Thank you. Thanks, audrey.

"It was Yemi I'll cinder of PBS April Ryan of the urban radio network believe and Abby Philip with the Washington Post e kind of like rapid fire attack them. I couldn't believe after April Ryan wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post about how you know like, duh. He's attacking black women. And he does it all the time. And he makes it clear what he thinks about us. She wrote this really great op at for the Washington Post, which will put in the show notes if you want to read it really kind of spells everything out. But by the time she'd written that it was only like three days after the election, and it felt like there had been three weeks of presidential tantrums, and they were all directed at like journalists, and like women of color and was just like, I don't know. What do you what do you make of his his predictable yet still upsetting response to to being frustrated or angry? I mean predictable and yet still upsetting is dead on. I don't think that there's it's tough not to get cynical about the stuff. Like, of course, he's gonna react like that. It is it is kind of. It's a little comical to see how just like tantrum. He was right after the it's a clear correlation between what happened between his mood clear correlation. I don't know. I just like when you're dealing somebody who doesn't have a sort of clear train of thought or any? I don't know any semblance of stability. I don't know what the solution is like, yeah. You know, except obviously obvious outrage obviously talking a against it and calling it out especially on behalf of of women. We don't have to be the ones attacked for us to see. This is happening in other words. Yeah. I mean, this to me it was sort of like a oh God. It's like when you watch three-year-old throw a fit in a supermarket, and you're just like, you know, you gotta let them tire himself out. But at the same time, I thought that this was like, okay. So this is something that he thinks should work because it worked for him during his presidential campaign attacking the right people, though, right people in the eyes of his his voting base works. It works when he is in front of a group of people because they cheer for him. It works when it's him like stirring up his base or getting tweets and re tweets he he feels like if he yells at people that look like how his base wants them to look, you know, like if he yells at the right the right people than he will like. Kind of shore up his own support. But I think what happened on November six proves that he is running out of white men like there are not enough white men to support a person who who there's not enough racist white men who to keep his presidency something that has any any sort of public mandate. Like, this is what he tried to like the same mechanisms that the same levers. He's trying to pull here, which is like, racism fear and kind of patriarchal belief in this old hierarchy those things didn't work. He tried to do that. When he when he was appealing to the caravan thing right before the election where it's like, oh, these people from another country are coming and get scared and vote for Republicans. Now, he's like, oh, these black women are asking me questions that hold me to account for what I'm doing get scared and keep me in power. I don't think that's gonna work anymore. I don't know. I feel like I'm rambling, but I feel like these things are canal. I hear you on that. I mean, I think that you're absolutely right. He's running out of white men. Obviously there's been criticism about the number of. White women out there who are also supporting him, you know, and the question is a of is that demographic able to keep him afloat. I think is you know, is really tenable. It's just infuriating we keep going around in circles. Because what do you do at this point? What do you do? I don't know we have house majority now. So maybe that'll change things. We can't impeach him. But also what if we can maybe that's you know, it's some something something has to give with this. And I don't want it to be our own cynicism and other things that I think we're seeing as a by product of this..
