And we're super excited to bring it out to market because it's something that...
Robinhood was hit by a slowdown in its crypto business during the third quarter, but the business unit's chief operating officer, Christine Brown, is optimistic. On this episode of The Scoop, Brown told host Frank Chaparro that "business is good" at the brokerage company. "More than 60 percent of Robinhood funded accounts traded crypto in Q2, and now everyone, everyone listening should know that retail is very cyclical," she said, foreshadowing the firm's earnings drop on Tuesday. "There's ebbs and flows." Robinhood reported a decline in crypto activity from its levels in the previous quarter, "leading to considerably fewer new funded accounts." Yet Robinhood hasn't moved as fast on launching new products and listing new coins, allowing rivals like Coinbase to take advantage of hype cycles around cryptocurrencies like Solana and Shiba Inu. And Robinhood's long-asked-for crypto wallet, announced in September, may not launch until next year. "We are actively rolling out the alpha and we have a small group of customers, about five to 10 people, who are going to be actively working with us through the last pieces of the customer experience," Brown said. As for new listings, Brown said the firm is taking a "safety-first approach," indicating the firm won't add new coins anytime soon. "We only have seven coins on our platform. That's an incredibly curated set of assets, especially if you think of other exchanges out there where there might be hundreds," she said. "We want to make sure that what we list makes sense, that we are working with our regulators in the proper way." Robinhood's slow and steady approach to listing new coins was further emphasized by the firm's CEO Vlad Tenev, who said during Tuesday's earnings call that "[t]he regulatory environment, in terms of new coins and lending products in crypto, is uncertain and evolving." ...

Tweetable Quotes “I teach people how to be productive at work and in life. And so I'm always looking for people who have a passion for productivity and have a passion for teaching or how.”- Thanh Pham “In the beginning phases, it's all about scaling yourself. Meaning you're the one who knows everything. So the more time you can free up for yourself. The more you can grow. Right?”- Thanh Pham “I'm happy to lose face if we can preserve the relationship where the contact or the other person feels good about themselves. And so that to me is always very important.” - Thanh Pham “When I think about strategy for my personal life, what I would try to maximize for is essential to happiness. I'm trying to maximize unique experiences, memory, and ultimately happiness.” - Thanh Pham “I really want to communicate to everyone that hiring is a skill like anything else that you can get better at.” - Thanh Pham “Ask yourself at least once a year if you go through every single person in your company, you ask yourself, would I rehire this person again?” - Thanh Pham “The quality of our happiness comes from the relationships we have with people and the better relationships we have, the happier we are.” - Thanh Pham “I want to build more deeper, meaningful relationships with people and actually get to know them as people, not who they are, what they do for work, but actually know their stories, what they believe in what they stand for, what their hopes and aspirations are, you know, who they were when they were little kids, that kind of stuff.” - Thanh Pham “I'm just learning as we're going and people know that it's all done in good fun, and that we're all learning from each other. And to me, that's the most important thing about being open-minded enough to learn about different perspectives that I would never think.” - Thanh Pham About Our Guest Thanh Pham (@asianefficiency) is the Founder of Asian Efficiency.

Sales and marketing departments usually operate as two separate entities. Although that's not healthy for a business, it's generally the reality in many companies. Santosh Sharan, president and COO of Apollo.io, joins our Market Dominance Guys, Chris Beall and Corey Frank, in this second of three conversations, to talk about the evolution of data as a business asset and how shared data — and unified leadership — can eliminate this unfortunate dichotomy of purpose, and fuse sales and marketing into one weapon with a single goal: market domination. “Sales is simple,” Santosh says, “You're looking for an edge over your competitors.” It used to come primarily from developing relationships, which Chris defines as gaining your prospect's trust. Now, though, getting the desired information or data to an interested prospect provides an increasingly important edge — if you can do it faster than your competitors can. And, thus, data joins trust as a necessary tool of sales. Learn more about this and other data- and sales-related insights in today's Market Dominance Guys' episode, “Data & Trust: Your Assets in Market Domination.” About Our Guest Santosh Sharan, president and COO at Apollo.io, a leading data intelligence and sales engagement platform. Previously, Santosh was COO at LeadGenius, COO at Aberdeen, and VP at ZoomInfo.
Omsom is one of the most publicized and respected food startups in recent memory, and for good reason. Launched in May 2020 by sisters and first-generation Vietnamese-Americans Vanessa and Kim Pham, Omsom markets chef-crafted starter kits that the company describes as “pantry shortcuts for specific Asian dishes” that include sauces, aromatics and seasonings all in a single package. A consumer combines the starter with protein and/or vegetables to create a finished dish. Since its debut, Omsom has captured the attention of consumer and trade media with its dazzling labels (the brand picked up a Best Package Design award from NOSH last year) and innovative approach to at-home meal prep. The company's most notable aspect, however, is the story of its founders and their vision to break long-standing barriers in how ethnic food is perceived and sold. In an interview featured in this episode, Vanessa Pham joined us for an expansive conversation about Omsom's mission and business philosophy, why she and Kim set out to build a brand for all consumers and the reason they don't use the word “authentic” when describing Omsom or its products. Vanessa also spoke about the company's retail and merchandising strategy, how the team is attempting to align buyers with their vision for the future of grocery, their PR strategy and why it has been effective in attracting national media attention and why she is bullish about greater financial investment in BIPOC-owned brands. This episode also includes a short interview with Caroline Cotto, the co-founder and COO of Renewal Mill, a brand of baking ingredients, mixes and sweet snacks made from upcycled byproducts of food production. Cotto joined us for a conversation about the Renewal Mill's origins and vision, multi-pronged approach to product development, its alignment with brands of a similar focus and how the company is positioning itself to be the go-to supplier for upcycled food ingredients. Show notes: 0:52: Interview: Vanessa Pham, Co-Founder & CEO, Omsom -- Following a brief chat about her recent croissant-laden respite, Pham spoke with Taste Radio editor Ray Latif about the inspiration for and meaning behind Omsom, her parents' influence on the brand's creation and the role her experience working at Bain & Co. played in the company's emergence. Pham also explained why she and her sister/co-founder Kim chose starter kits as the brand's inaugural product line and why observers may be mistaken into thinking the company has a niche focus, the extensive research that went into Omsom's development and why the company uses the term “cultural integrity” instead of “authentic.” Later, she discussed the target consumer for Omsom, the ideal retail placement for its products, the company's approach to bridging the gap between online and brick-and-mortar retail, how the PR strategy and resulting media coverage inherently tie into Omsom's vision and her recommendations on how financial organizations can increase funding for women and minority-led businesses. 47:24: Interview: Caroline Cotto, Co-Founder & COO, Renewal Mill -- In an interview recorded at Natural Products Expo East 2021, Latif sat down with Cotto to talk about Renewal Mill's product portfolio, retail footprint and how the company's marketing and communication strategy has evolved since its launch. She also discussed the brand's innovation pipeline, which leans on “familiar vehicles to introduce novel ingredients,” as well as its approach to co-branding partnerships and the company's pricing strategy. Later, Cotto explained Renewal Mill's thoughtful growth strategy and why she expects its ingredient business to be the primary focus in the future and her background prior to founding the company.

Sean: Now I'm wondering you are also the managing director of Penbrothers with maybe more or less 70 people working with you. What are some of those lessons that we can learn from you right now? Josef: Yeah, so I mean a huge amount, right? I don't think Humble would be anything like if it weren't for those experiences in Penbrothers. So I'm very, very lucky and thankful to my co-founders at Penbrothers and the entire team because I've had there over three years of really learning what it takes to lead a team, to build a startup, and to scale a startup. Right. I think we only had 17 people at Penbrothers and now we have pushing 80 people and we employ 500 people for other startups around the world. So I've been very lucky there, I think. But funnily enough, it also has no downsides, but it has as a funny, a couple of curveballs. And I'll give you one, which is more of a personal thing, it's my fault, not anyone else's. But like, at Penbrothers right now I have a C team, right? So I've got a COO, a chief transformation officer. I have extremely senior people who I can rely on for all these different things. And so going from that, which is really just, okay, hi, Patrick, Tom, whoever it might be. This is the problem. Let me know what help you need to go and fix it. I'll speak to you in a week when we've got brilliant solutions on my table. Right? Fantastic. Compared to when I experienced a problem at Humble. I'm kind of looking around, where's my Patrick, my Tom, and my guy and there's no one, right? So there's no more delegation. It's almost like you've gone back 10 years in kind of how you run an organization and go from really delegating all these tasks to a big stable team, to getting your hands very dirty and doing it yourself. When normally that progression is the other way around. Right? Normally you kind of go from doing it yourself all the way up to eventually leading on this. So that's quite a, I hope slightly amusing kind of curveball there, but in terms of lessons learned, I mean, I think managing people, in general, is always one of the most crucial, if not the most crucial lessons learned. Because whether it's an intern, whether it's a COO, whether it's an investment board, whether it's a client or a customer, being able to manage relationships and speak to people, and understand the maturity of how that changes through time and how you need it. Adapt the way that you're speaking, depending on the culture or the person, the stage of the person, the feeling of the person is really an art form, which I think we never stopped learning. And that is something in Penbrothers. That's, I've really, really learned because I'll speak to sometimes very junior people, other times my co-founders, and completely different sensitivities as to how to speak to people there. So that's one I think. Another one I think is culture building, which again is, it's got similarities to that one. But culture for us is so important. And I think you learn that only when you've been in it, because of course we can see the big, beautiful companies, the Googles, the Canva's of this world, and we see all of this amazing culture. But to actually be there and experience how to build culture and is really, really important to then understanding what you do need to do, right. Things like that are so difficult and I learned that in Penbrothers, by making lots of personal mistakes, but also seeing some good times also with regards to culture development as to blossoming into what it is now. Because then of course in Humble, when you're starting from scratch, you get the chance to do it all again from the beginning.

In one of his interviews at his current company, our guest said this to the CEO: “If we're going to build an organization that truly earns the love of the customer by providing a consistent experience, we need to put the entire customer journey under one umbrella. We also need to train the team to be maniacally focused on the customer — to understand the market, the industry, and the players' wants, needs, and wins — by training as a whole, not in silos.” In this episode, I interview Mark Rosenthal, COO at HqO, about executing his vision to create a culture of collaboration.

The following was produced by Tearsheet Studios. We worked with Fiserv, a financial services technology company, to create a four part podcast series on the role and changing nature of data aggregation in the financial industry. You can read and listen to the first episode on the Tearsheet website. In this episode, we spoke with Paul Diegelman, VP of Fiserv side by side with the president and COO of Save. The companies are working closely together to power a new type of savings account that combines savings with investment technology to give higher FDIC-insured returns. There's a sea of sameness when it comes to banking apps. And with really low interest rates, there's little to differentiate between all the plain-vanilla offerings. Save is different -- it uses a creative combination between savings accounts and investment technology to give its customers higher returns on their savings and rewards on their cards. I spoke with Adam Watts, the president and COO of Save.
Waking up in a cold sweat at 3AM in the spring of 2019, Jeff knew he was done with corporate life. The startup he moved his family cross-country for was broken beyond repair. Great concept, handful of happy clients, but zero marketing presence to get to that next level. After advocating for a strategic marketing approach that the President liked and the COO didn't, things stagnated. Rather than do nothing, Jeff handed in his resignation. Today, what they rejected is what Jeff helps his clients with. After 20+ years in advertising and media sales, Jeff realized small business owners have been misled on what they need to know about growing their business. Jeff's mission is to accelerate profits and guarantee quantifiable Return on Investment from his hybrid marketing coaching/consulting services. Unlike 99% of the coaches & consultants out there, he's only too happy to guarantee an outcome of positive results as long as his clients put in the work that is mutually agreed upon. Jeff is a dynamic, energetic and knowledgeable speaker with actionable advice on what you can do RIGHT NOW to get your business back on track. Audiences and hosts will love Jeff and his approach to comprehensive change without spending an extra cent!
