Hello Mr. Molyneux, Tl; dr: I just donated to you, because this was my first chance in thirteen years to do so. Your book Real Time Relationships saved my life. Now I'm thriving and can finally give back. I'm afraid I lost touch with your show after I defoo'd, and only recently started to hear your thoughts again and follow you on Telegram. I just wanted to thank you, because I read Real Time Relationships and it made me realize that I did not have to put up with the abuse I was going through. RTR and UPB accompanied me through the hardest moments of my life, and dissuaded me from committing suicide. I eventually found a good community of friends and we became family. A healthy, happy, non-coercive family. If you have time to read my story, and I hope you'll find this all — especially my research — interesting enough for a call-in show, here it goes:I grew up in [X], where my group of friends is. My father was an angel during my early life: He got me into reading and science through sci-fi, showed me how wonderful mathematics is, taught me more than I learned in college about computers, a ton about cars, and was generally a very kind, peaceful man. My mother, however, was the complete opposite: She was physically abusive in my youth and once I grew taller than her she became emotionally abusive. She is the archetype of the devouring mother, wanting my sisters and I to always be under her control, and she got her way with one of my sisters, and to this day I find any of her physical affection to stir deep, bodily disgust in me. Right around the time I hit puberty, my father went into a major depression, so bad that it went on after I left, and only five years back or so did he get on his feet. That time, when I was spiritually alone and hanging out with bad crowds, is when I started listening to your show. Since then, my dad and I have rebuilt some aspects of our relationship. I have two older sisters, the eldest helped me defoo, and I helped raise her son, whereas it took me seven years to rebuild my relationship with my other sister due to my mother's lies —strange, considering my grandmother did the same to her and her brother and she is both conscious and resentful of that. I've tried to rebuild with my mother, after understanding that she's mentally a child, and that her mother was much worse with her than she was with me, but she refuses to respect my boundaries even to this day, so we don't really have contact anymore. For about three years I was a tuba player in an opera company, which was barely enough to live along with other side gigs both with the tuba and, for example, as a bartender. Eventually I became a translator (mostly English to Spanish), and that's still my profession. I focus on technical/scientific articles, especially ones with a lot of statistics, so during the pandemic I was busier than I've ever been, but good academic music has served to lift my spirits. Three years ago, I decided I wanted to pursue philosophy as well and moved to America. I'm currently researching computable measures of ethics for my Master's thesis. That being said, the ideas I have are more related to AI; I have an MSCS and bachelors in CS, math, and philosophy. My thesis is for Computational Mathematics and Statistics, my second MS. I'm thriving through my research, started publishing papers on forensic linguistics, and getting educated in Quantum Computing, and won't stop until I have a PhD in logic. Now I have started making good friends in the US, surrounding myself with people I respect, but I'm dating a daddy's money leftist. Why do I do that to myself? Well, you could say we're sharing a drink that's called loneliness but it's better than drinking alone! So, about my research:My original idea was to survey objective ethical theories and derive mathematical formalisms for them, in order to find commonalities and propose a theory that included and expanded on the best aspects of all of them. That changed when I came across Shane Legg's doctoral thesis on Machine Super Intelligence, where he describes an objective, mathematical measurement for intelligence, and I said: We can make an ethical theory out of this! This was, ironically, inspired by my mother's abuse, as I figured the ethical responsibility of an actor is limited to what it can infer and how intelligent it is; I cannot have the same standards for all the adult children around me and for the people I actually respect. This led to a 100 or so pages of work where I review common human moral intuitions, God, Kant, and others while doing my best to bring down ideas from people like Habermas and Rawls (I still remember your video on Rawls, it certainly inspired me to do this work). I figure this is a big enough wall of text already, I'm sorry but I just wanted to tell you about some of the myriad things I owe to you. Let me apologize for my English as well; Spanish is my first language and even after three and a half years of living in the US I still have not mastered the grammar.

The Second Phase Podcast - Personal Branding & Brand Marketing and Life Strategies for Success for Female Entrepreneurs

Growing a successful online business as an entrepreneur can feel daunting and overwhelming. But if you follow these 5 tips you can grow an online business, with more ease and less stress. You can start and grow an online business without feeling so overwhelmed The online world is inundated with people sharing tips on how to grow an online business. But a lot of times, those tips aren't applicable to everyone, they aren't accessible to everyone starting out, or, they are confusing and hard to do alone. By the way, no one is meant to grow a successful business alone. We all need someone to help us and guide us and hold us accountable for intentional action. But, even before hiring a business coach, you can take steps to grow an online business without feeling like you are climbing a mountain with no lifeline. Let's take a look at how my 5 C's of personal branding can be applied to help you grow an online business Clarity is the first step to take to successfully grow an online business If you want to start and grow an online business, you must have clarity. When you have clarity, you have more confidence. And when you have more confidence you also trust yourself more. Likewise, when you have clarity and confidence and trust yourself, your soulmate clients are going to have clarity be confident, and trust you. So where do you begin to discover clarity? Purpose It starts with knowing your purpose and what you can do to truly make an impact and serve others. If you make a list of your values, visions, and passions you will see overlap in the three. Where that overlap occurs, you will discover your purpose. That thing that you can do to feel fulfilled, but also make an impact and serve others. Soulmate client Once you have clarity around your purpose, it's time to discover who your soulmate client is. Who are the people you feel called to serve? What specifically do the people need from you? Know exactly what the problem is that people have and how you can help them with it. How you can help If you are struggling to identify how you can help people, look at what your purpose is and all of the experiences that have led you to where you are today. Your soulmate client is 10 steps behind you. That may look like 10 years, 5 years, 3 years, or a few months, but all of the experiences that you've grown through are what they are going through at this moment. Clarity means aligning with your values The key to clarity is aligning all you do with your values. Your purpose involves your values and therefore, if you want to connect with your soulmate clients to grow an online business, you must stay aligned with your values, your visions, and your passions. You must have clarity around your purpose, the impact you want to make, the service you can and want to provide, who you want to serve, how you will serve them, where and when you will serve them, and your mission for serving them, in other words, your why. Keep in mind that it is challenging to achieve clarity if you are struggling with mindset barriers. Similarly, if you aren't aligned with your values, you may feel more fear and anxiety which will result in procrastination. I can't emphasize enough how important having a positive mindset is to achieve clarity. Being Cohesive is the second thing you need to grow an online business When I talk about being cohesive, I am referring to your brand identity and your branding. Your personal brand is what others think, say, and feel about you. Branding is how you communicate what makes you unique from all others in your area of expertise. And your brand identity is your color palette, typography, and logo, identifying factors, but now what truly differentiates you. Click here to read more about the differences between a personal brand, branding, and brand identity. Become recognizable, memorable, and sharable to build trust to grow your online business In order to stand out and become recognizable, memorable, and sharable, you need to use all of these things cohesively from your website to your social media platforms. In order to grow an online business, you must have trust. Trust determines buying practices. The more recognizable, memorable, and sharable you are, the more people will trust you. Think about stopping the scroll on social media. You want people to see your content and immediately think, that's Jane, I love her and know she provides value so I don't want to miss this post. They stop and consume your content, and their trust in you grows. The third thing you need to grow an online business is consistency Consistency doesn't refer to the thickness of cake batter when talking about how to grow an online business but rather being consistent. Consistent messaging to grow an online business When talking about being cohesive I didn't mention your copy or messaging. These are very important and they do need to be cohesive, but they also need to be consistent. Every piece of content you create should be clear and consistent about what you do, who you serve, how you serve them, and why you serve them. You never what to confuse your audience. Confusion will break trust. And we know that confused people never buy. The more consistent you are with the content you create on your website and all other platforms, the more trust you will build. Consistently showing up for your audience helps grow an online business You also want to be present consistently. The best part about being present is that you get to choose what works best for you. Do you want to write a blog post once a month or once a week? How many times a week do you want to post on social media? What about emailing your subscribers? How often do you want to show up in their email inbox? You get to decide so that you can be consistent, showing up in a way that works for you. Following recommendations of people online is not necessarily going to work for you. Some people show up on social media multiple times a day. If that doesn't work for you and you can only show up 3 times a week, make that choice but stay consistent so that your audience knows when to expect you and can see that you are consistently showing up for them. The more consistent you are, the more trust you will build. In addition, the more consistent you are with your messaging, the more people will see you as an expert. The fourth tip to help you grow an online business is content. Your content will become the deal-breaker for your audience getting to know you, understanding what makes you unique from all others in your space, and building relationships. At the end of the day, your goal is to build trust. You build trust by building relationships. Your content from your website copy, blog posts, email marketing campaigns, and social media post is what will help you emotionally connect with your audience to build relationships and trust. People often dislike social media and the demand for creating content. However, if you look at creating content as an opportunity for developing relationships and building trust so that you can grow your online business it won't seem so daunting. Ultimately, your content is your branding. It is your effort to differentiate yourself, create an emotional connection with your audience, build relationships and community, and convert them to soulmate clients because they trust you. Repurposing content to make your life easier while you grow your online business In addition, repurposing content makes content creation easier. You can begin with a blog and repurpose the blog into multiple social media posts and an email to your audience. It takes people 7 to 20 times to see or hear something and remember it. This statistic is justification for repurposing your content to ensure that your audience gets to know you as the expert you are. Lastly, you need a community to grow an online business Your community begins with your family and friends. You might think they will get sick of hearing your messages or seeing you on social media, but they love you and want to support you, and will share you with their friends, neighbors, and extended family. Your community is not only a referral source but an opportunity for collaboration. The more you create opportunities for collaboration, the more your community will grow. For example, when you are a guest in someone's Facebook group, when you collaborate for an event when you collaborate for a social media post or guest on a podcast or blog, you are reaching a larger audience. The collaborator's audience will immediately trust you because the collaborator trusts you. As you develop relationships on social media and through networking, build your community and extend invitations for collaborations and joint referrals. Summary All of the Cs are connected and result in trust. Clarity builds confidence which builds trust. Being cohesive helps you become recognizable and memorable, which in turn helps people trust you. Consistency in messaging and presence builds also helps you become recognizable and memorable and is the key to meaningful content. Content is your gateway to developing relationships, differentiating yourself from all others in your space, and building trust and community. Your community is your fan base will who ultimately shares about you and hires you.

Today we have with us, TJ LittleJohn. He is the founder of mtnPay, winner of the most recent Solana Hackathon Payments Track for Riptide. TJ, how's it going, man?TJ (00:55):Dude, it's going good. We're stoked to be here. Thanks for having me on.Chase (01:00):Yeah, man. You and I basically met, I feel like a few months ago when you were building some stuff for iOS. Basically some IDL stuff with Anchor and we were talking about potentially getting you some work going on and then next thing you know, a couple of things happen and here we are. But before we dive too much into that, let's hear a little introduction. I know a lot of people probably don't know a ton about you. Where'd you start your journey and how'd you end up here, building in the Solana Ecosystem?TJ (01:31):Yeah. Wow. For sure. Abridged version. So, I'm from Florida originally born and raised. Grew up in South Florida, went to school in Tallahassee, Florida State Granoles. Originally I was a big Math guy. Always wanted to do pure Math and trying to see how I could make a career out of that. Finance was an option. And so I was exploring that and someone told me I should learn to code. So, I started learning to code, from that found Hackathons, from that found iOS development. And just down the rabbit hole there. At a hackathon, I ended up securing an internship at Apple, which turned into a job. And then I spent four years there doing research and development and experience prototyping. And then about a year ago I decided I was done with that and I wanted to be in startups. And so I left, joined a startup. Five months after that I found Solana through some friends and I just noticed the point in time we were at. And I was just stoked. And so I quit and I just immediately started building.Chase (02:36):Wow. So you don't have a CS degree, you're self-taught programmer and landed an internship at Apple dealing on the development side of things?TJ (02:44):No, I do have a CS degree.Chase (02:46):Oh, you do?TJ (02:46):So, I did both. I did Math and CS, but the CS portion to me was the less interesting one. I loved pure Math. I thought it was so cool. CS was more of the necessity one. And then I thought it was cool when I started doing it. But I think I learned a lot more through just the apps I built outside of class. So, partially self-taught. Because that was the more important part, but my education was super important too.Chase (03:13):You have a CS degree, you ended up interning for Apple. You did that for how long was it again?TJ (03:20):It was four years.Chase (03:22):Four years. And you said research, were you actually doing development while you were there?TJ (03:26):Yeah, so we did data collection for new products. So think how face ID was trained on millions of images. We built the software to facilitate those user studies that captured the data to train the models, to enable face ID. So we were brought in super early product.Chase (03:44):Oh, so I mean, I guess that's a little more interesting, like somebody who's into Math, you're dealing with lots of data and information, or opposed to just writing a high level code or something like that.TJ (03:55):Not exactly. The Math thing, it's like pure Math. I don't do with data and numbers and processing. I just think pure Math is fucking cool. And when I have an itch about something, I just want to dive. And so, that was the Math thing for me. That was just pure. I love it and I think it taught me how to understand stuff, which I think I still, every now and then, I'll see, I have the power to do that, which is really cool. The thing with Apple was that it let me just hack on shit. I had month long projects and software efforts that, because I get bored really quick, which is a blessing and a curse. Historically. Apple just let me work on a project and then a month later I was working on something else.Chase (04:41):Yeah, we've had some conversations, like you said, you get bored really quick, it comes through a little bit in your personality. You get super excited about things and bounce around and that's why I like your energy, it's super crazy and incredible. So it's nice to have people so excited about these things and especially considering the fact of some of the more recent, great things that have happened. I want to really start this whole conversation outside of your past on where it all truly, truly began, which from what I understand was really mtnDAO. That's like, lit this whole fire off. I don't know if everybody knows about it and if they do, maybe not how great of a thing that it turned out to be. Maybe about Barrett and Edgar and what they set up and how it was and then how that whole month went for you, that led to this moment.TJ (05:31):So yeah, mtnDAO, for people that don't know was a month long hacker house in Salt Lake City, Utah, where people from all over just congregated and we spent a month working on whatever it is you want to work on, in this co-working space called The Shop. And like you said, Edgar and Barrett, they're actually the ones that got me into Solana. They were the first people to introduce me and they just threw this hack house to grow the ecosystem out of the kindness of their own hearts and love for co-working and developing and hacking. And so yeah, a bunch of us came through and we just were chilling in Utah. We'd go snowboarding on the weekends. We'd throw parties on Fridays and bring in people from around the City and just strips, just get after it.And that was the best part. We'd be working from like 10:00, 11:00 AM was when I would roll in till like 1:00, 2:00 in the morning, most days. And a good crew of people were always there doing that too. Maybe if you wanted to go grab dinner, you could and people would come back. But yeah, it was just a lot of incredibly focused work and a nice little crew formed out of that. And so I've seen a lot of the same mtnDAO folks at the next hacker houses and stuff, and that's always fun. And you just become friends with these people.Chase (06:51):Yeah, it seems like there was a lot of building going on. I'm not going to lie, I saw that notion that Edgar and Barrett, or I think it might have been Edgar, correct me if I'm wrong, put together this notion. And I was like, a Dev did this? Just because it was so organized and well put together. And then, those guys pretty much put this thing, from start to finish, got this thing going.TJ (07:09):Yeah. There was a lot of people that participated in the setup of it. I know Sam had a big part, Edgar and Barrett had a big part. A lot of those core Salt Lake City people were doing this stuff. But yeah. I mean, they took out the trash. There was, under the tables the first day, taping extension cords. So they, I mean, yeah, they did the stuff.Chase (07:28):Yeah. I talked to him in Miami and he was like, yeah, I have a room and an office that's filled with about a hundred monitors. I can't remember what it is at some point, but it looked like there was tons of building going on there. Whenever I see the community, they didn't really ask for permission. And a lot of people would say, why don't you bring a hacker house to our city or this or that? And the reality is, you don't need that. You have an idea, you execute, you make it known. And people are going to come there and you're probably going to likely get some sponsors to help you put it on because this is like an incubator. And obviously mtnPay came out of this, which is incredible. Let's talk a little bit about that. I'm pretty sure, maybe I'm wrong, is that Solana Pay, was it announced before you got to mtnDAO? Or was it announced while you were there?TJ (08:13):It was actually the same day. February 1st is when I rolled through.Chase (08:19):I was on a phone call with you actually, whenever you showed up, you remember that?TJ (08:22):Really?Chase (08:23):Yeah, you were like, I just got to mtnDAO. Yeah. We were...TJ (08:27):I probably called you from the airport. Yeah. I've been like--Chase (08:29):You did.TJ (08:30):Probably over-committing myself. And I remember we were talking about doing a possible grant or something for that IDL stuff. And I was like, just trying to not lose that. Not doing my end of it. You were like, TJ, if you just write a notion page on your idea, I can move it through. And I was like, ah, I don't know. I'm building. And yeah. So we never got through there, but yeah.Chase (08:55):Well, I think it worked out pretty well. So, you got there, Solana Pay's announced, and you were just like, okay, well I'm just going to build something with this.TJ (09:04):No, not at all.Chase (09:06):Okay.TJ (09:07):There was two funny touch points with Solana Pay that got me rolling. The first one was, I hopped out of mtnDAO to go to the LA hacker house for a two day stint, because I was working with these people. And then as I was about to leave, I remember my friend Greg from Solana News was like, I missed the news cycle on Solana Pay. They must have had insider information, that was a couple of days after it was announced. And I was like, what do you mean, dude? It's been going on. He's like, what? I'm like, yeah. Are you not on Twitter? Do you not see this stuff? So, that was funny.And so, that had top of mind a little bit, but the idea for mtnPay, it was Friday night, it was the night of the first party we were having, we had parties every Friday or Saturday. And I was grabbing a Red Bull from, they had this self-service checkout kiosk, as I do. I just consume just stupid amounts of Red Bull. And I was buying another one and you pay through square, tap your phone. I don't know. I just had a random idea that it was like, yo, wouldn't it be hilarious if we rebuilt this self checkout experience and then just added the Solana Pay stuff, because we're all Solana people here for a month, this the first week and that would just be funny.And I told him, I was like, I'm just going to do it. And they're like, that's hilarious. Do it. And then so on Sunday, my boy Scott was in town and we were at the hacker house just trying to think of things to work on for Riptide. And we were skating through all these different ideas on creator tokens or I don't remember all the different things. And it was like, what if we do that Point of Sale thing? That'd be cool. And whatever, we could probably build this in a two day stint. Not a big deal and yeah, that's why we built it.Chase (11:00):Yeah, I remember starting to see a couple of days after Solana Pay launched, I started to see all these videos of people filming themselves and you guys paying with Solana Pay. I was like, this is crazy. This just came out. I can't believe, well, I could believe that you had put that together already. And then from there, Solana Pay's really gained a ton of traction, but you were really the first person to come out and be like, look, hey guys, I did it. And it's actually live in this place right now. And it's still there to this day? They keep that?TJ (11:32):Yeah. As far as I know. Our customer success could use some work. And so I haven't followed up with them in a couple weeks. But we got them set up on our new version, which was a more self-service thing. So as far as I know, it's still running there. There's even a week where it wasn't working and Barrett was texting me nonstop. Like, bro, you need to get this working again because I need this. And so, that's that classic, build something, people would be upset if it goes away. And so we did that.Chase (12:01):Yeah. So you did this in a short amount of time and since then, there was a lot left in the hackathon to go. So, since that first day or that you got that live, I guess you've been doing a ton of work up until the point where you made your final submission, tell us a little bit about mtnPay and what work was involved and what are the features and maybe what's the future of mtnPay.TJ (12:30):Yeah, for sure. So the first half the gate was just, it's an iOS Point of Sale app that enables users to use Solana Pay to pay. And then the second thing is a square integration. So, we use the square APIs to tie it into your current Point of Sale System. So the transactions show up in line. Chase bought a Red Bull here for $3 with his MasterCard and then he bought a cookie for a dollar using Solana Pay. And so that was the core thing. And we had built it specifically for The Shop. We got a bunch of inbound of like, how can I set this up? How can I do it? So we had to take a step back and use a couple weeks to make it more robust and actually usable in self-service. Which was our base for what we wanted to submit to the hackathon, was just like a usable Point of Sale by everyone, it's still in test flight.And then Solana Pay evolved to a new spec while we were there. And then immediately became gas on that. And ever since the wheels have been turning there and then that initial spec change is what led us to where we are today, which is honestly, and not a lot of people know this, but we're more of an API company now. We're more like SaaS APIs and stuff like that.Chase (13:43):I guess, doing the API side makes it a little more versatile so that anybody can use it and they don't have to use a specific device or framework or anything like that.TJ (13:55):Yeah. I think the APIs, to be honest, they came more out of this idea of defensibility, because with a lot of the attention we got, it was like, what's the opportunity here? Is there something worth building out? And in that, there's a lot of things that could make you super existential, like just square adding Solana pay themselves. And so how do we actually build a moat in this industry or something. And so we were like, this transaction request thing came up, which enables you to use APIs in Solana Pay, what if we open that up to people and then let that be our defensibility and our moat. And so we spent a lot of time thinking about what that API suite would look like and then realize that, that's the bigger opportunity from our point of view, but probably more importantly, it's what we want to build in this space.I think there's a lot of opportunities for a lot of people to participate and building out the client that people would use. There's also a lot of stuff that we weren't interested in building. Like inventory management and tax reporting and accounting. Like, nah. I want to do the Solana stuff. And the APIs is the Solana stuff. And so that's where we're at now.Chase (15:08):Now. Yeah. I mean, it makes sense. Here's the thing, you build a project and you don't want to start taking on things that you don't enjoy because then you probably stop enjoying your job. So you do what excites you and then you offload or allow connection points for other people to build that stuff who see that opportunity. But it makes a lot of sense. I've talked to people who have created businesses and then they pull in, maybe not this specifically, but like the tax stuff and all these different sort of inventory management. And then it becomes like, I don't really like this anymore. This is not what I signed up for.TJ (15:42):That's what was happening. And so it was like, really I had to focus on something specifically in there and that's, we picked the APIs and it's been cool. We've been working with different protocols to add their functionality to our APIs. And yeah, it's been fun since we started focusing there.Chase (16:04):So obviously it was the right move because you, just to circle back to this is, you won the Payments Track of the Riptide Hackathon. There was a lot of competition. There was a lot of good stuff in there. So I'm just curious, how did that feel when you saw that?TJ (16:18):I'm dumb competitive. And so it was so funny because it was like, it started off as people are, oh, you going to submit this to Riptide? And it was like, yeah, probably, but we're not really focused on that. And the closer we got to Riptide, we're like, we want to win. And then so we had been paying a lot of attention to other people that were building in this space, seeing where people's attention was. The whole time we were like, I don't know, fairly confident we would do well to some extent, but then I think it was up to, what did the judges value? You don't know. But we were super proud of what we built and we're hoping other people saw what we saw and seeing that we won the Payments Track, it was just like a pat on the back. It was like, we agree.Chase (17:07):We agree.TJ (17:09):Yeah. That's what it was. And there was some chest pounding, there was something like, yes. But I also think the part I was more stoked on was just the attention that would follow and knowing that we could leverage that to build something. Because I think the attention is just like, it's fuel. And you can't do it with only attention you have to follow it up. But we knew it would empower a lot of the things that we wanted to do.Chase (17:37):Yeah, for sure. And I think these aren't necessarily your classic typical hackathon, where you hack on some little thing for a week or a month. These sorts of events are actually catalysts to build real businesses. And this is meant to be inspirational to developers that are watching this, that may or may not have dipped their toes into Solana. Maybe they have, but they haven't gotten anywhere. These stories are super inspirational. So I want to put it in context. What is the timeframe from the day that TJ wrote his first piece or read his first Solana doc to winning Riptide Payments Track? What's that timeframe?TJ (18:13):September, August. I was reading, I was staying up late. I was still working at the startup and I was staying up till like 3:00, 4:00 in the morning, reading that classic, Paul article on doing an escrow. It was partly that it was partly that Packy podcast.Chase (18:30):Oh yeah.TJ (18:30):On Solana Summer. That was super dope. I remember I was at the gym and I was listening to him talk about the DJ Apes Mint and two weeks prior I was at Miami hack week, it was like, I remember I was chilling with Barrett, I met him for the first time, we had met through our friend Eve, shoutout Eve. And it was just me, Barrett, Edgar and Eve in this apartment and they were just talking about crypto and I knew nothing. So I wanted to fit in and I was like, oh, I bought some Ethereum lately.I thought I would impress him. And he is like, nah, and he's looking at me, he's like, fuck Ethereum. And I was like, what? And just turns around and he goes, Solana. And I was like, what is Solana? I thought it was like some shit coin. And that was just when it got on my map. And then I saw the Packy thing. I did that. And then all these NFT things were popping up and I'm like, all right, what's going on? And then Candy Machine pops up. So I'm like reading that contract and I'm reading the Levi's thing and trying to set one up for myself and it feels like explosions all around me. And I'm like, what is this world? And people are just shipping and I can't keep up. And it was like overwhelming. And then I quit.Chase (19:41):So it's been about, from zero to hero in seven months, basically. Is what I'm hearing right here. Seven or eight months.TJ (19:49):Yeah. Something like that. Yeah. I feel like I got onboarded fairly quick. I feel like I was doing stuff to me that felt like mattered, immediately. All that iOS stuff that I was doing, to me felt groundbreaking.Chase (20:04):Yeah.TJ (20:05):And I felt like a hero then, honestly. That stuff made me feel more of a hero than what I felt like with Riptide.Chase (20:11):Really?TJ (20:12):To be totally honest.Chase (20:12):So it was more so just that you win Riptide, like, wow, I got this thing, but the more part for you was the personal win of actually just starting on this new journey and figuring out how to build on Solana.TJ (20:26):Like I said, I'm dummy competitive. So winning Riptide was great. It was a good job power, but with mtnPay, I don't feel like I've done anything yet. I think there's opportunities too. And we're on a path to actually really contribute to the Solana Ecosystem. But I don't feel like I've had a major accomplishment there yet. But with the iOS stuff, I totally did. I, from native iOS code, minted an NFT through Candy Machine. I figured out how to talk to Anchor programs from native iOS code. And that to me was like, that gave me so much energy.Chase (21:05):So tell me about that. You started building on Solana, did you start messing around with Rust? Did you start messing around with Anchor? Or did you go straight to those SWIFT SDKs that existed? What was your process for getting rolling on Solana?TJ (21:18):Totally. Yeah. That's a great thing to preface here is, I've done barely any Rust. I haven't shipped a smart contract to Mainnet. Mostly client work. So there's massive opportunities in this space to really participate and have impact just doing client work. That being said, the way I really learned it was just wanting to write an iOS app that would work with Solana. And so I found a couple of open source SWIFT packages that was doing iOS transaction stuff. And so, that's how I learned what a transaction object looked like and where you serialize it and how you add accounts to that. And what's an account. And what's [inaudible 00:22:02] coding. All of that stuff I just learned because I had to, to make an iOS app that talked to Anchor. And so me and my friend, Michael, we went to college together, and so we were up till like 4:00 in the morning for weeks just printing out transaction objects in JavaScript, on the Anchor thing and figuring out how do we bridge that to iOS? And that was the coolest.Chase (22:30):And then this is exactly the point we've talked about a couple times on this show. And I say it on my Twitter all the time. You just won Riptide Payments Track and you'd never shipped a smart contract. How? Well it's because not everybody needs to be this guy who writes the smart contracts. You just need to know how to talk to them, using these different APIs, SWIFT, JavaScript. There's a C# SDK, there's a Unity One built on top of that. There's a [inaudible 00:22:57] one, they're all out there and you can learn Solana, and in a way you're comfortable, which is in your native language. And you're talking about just doing print lines and printing out and just reading, what is this object? And now I get it.TJ (23:10):Yeah. That was the process. And it was great. And I think we have a long way to go before developers can step in and build incredibly easily and efficiently, but the process is still fun. And there's a lot of toys you get to use when building this up, a lot of exposure, you feel super low level. And yet, they encourage everyone to just dig in and start building shit.Chase (23:38):In your opinion, what are some of those things that need to improve to make this easier for the new guys or the old guys? It doesn't really matter. What needs to happen? And what do we need?TJ (23:47):Error messages.Chase (23:49):Error messages.TJ (23:52):It is like, you will get like, Error A4, and there's nowhere to go. And you're digging around. I'm like, dude, you literally got to clone the repo and go line by line and figure out what's that error? What are we doing? It's fun. And from when I got into it to like what Armani's done with Anchor now and the Anchor books, that's there, the Solana Cookbook, that's all there now. So it's easier to do it now. And even when I try to do more on-chain stuff or build out stuff that I'm not comfortable with, I'm able to go reference those materials, but they weren't there in September.Chase (24:30):Yeah.TJ (24:31):And that was kind of fun though. It was like a point in time. And I was always envious of people that got to code in machine code, because they had to and what a point in time that must have been to get to be a part of that. And that's why I started building in Solana, I saw that point in time again, I thought Solana was going to pop and I was like, I'm not missing it.Chase (24:53):You were basically like, I see Solana, I see that not everything's been created and there's massive opportunities and I'm going to carve myself out a slice of that and just do it. So it's pretty crazy to be talking about this now.TJ (25:05):Yeah, it's been a journey.Chase (25:07):Yeah. And a lot of this was all Discord Support. It was a huge pain in the ass. You answer the same questions 5,000 times a day. Shoutout to the [inaudible 00:25:16] team at Solana labs that really just spent way too much time in Discord and the core engineers that shouldn't be there all.TJ (25:22):Shoutout Alan.Chase (25:23):Yeah. Alan has actually been obviously incredible.TJ (25:26):Fun story, in that with Alan, we were working on that iOS stuff till dumb hours at night, I think it might have been 2:00 in the morning. And we were having these errors we could not figure out. And so we posted in Discord and Alan answered and we're going back and forth with this guy. Didn't know him at all. This is our first thing. He's like, I'm happy to hop on a call with you to help you sort it out. And we were on that call for three hours. But that to me is such a story of people in Solana. There is so many people that just are cool with just helping you. And they're in the weeds with you and it's that developer ecosystem that attracted me and I think is going to attract so many people after me.):Which to your credit, I think you've set up a lot of it. Being the dev relations at Solana, just creating the environment for those developers to thrive and giving them the resources. I think that's where this has come from, but yeah, that was just a monster classic Solana moment for me that I wanted to highlight.Chase (26:31):Yeah, for sure. And there's a lot of people. It started with Toly and Raj and then that attitude and welcomeness humor came down to me and Armani and so many different people that feels like you can approach anybody in the ecosystem. And I agree, I think this side of tone and vibe is what will attract a lot of younger developers.TJ (26:56):Yeah.Chase (26:57):There's lots of different complaints out there. One of the biggest ones we've been hearing a lot is about tooling. If you agree with that, what web tooling or blockchain tooling are we missing right now at Solana? Do you have anything personally that you would like to see?TJ (27:12):No, I don't have the most robust engineering background. When I was at Apple, we used Apple internal tools. So that was all I really knew. And so, even now, I'll be coding on something with someone at a hackathon and they're like, wait, you're not using this plugin. You're not using the Anchor plugin for VS code. I'm like, no, what is that?Chase (27:34):Here's the old-school.TJ (27:36):Yeah. They're like, baby come here. They would set me up with some stuff. So, that's so cool. I think examples are going to be great. I think just like getting examples out there for people so that they could learn that they can do it too is going to be really cool.Chase (27:48):And self-onboard.TJ (27:48):Yeah. Self-onboarding's massive. And that's one of the ways we want to go with mtnPay, because we're just like a set of APIs. I think we can open up these APIs to iOS native developers to be able to build apps, they don't need to do the exact transaction building. We can have just a normal API that lets them build the transaction themselves. So that's one of the directions we definitely want to go into and we feel like can bring native developers to Solana, hopefully.Chase (28:16):Yeah. It's about giving the tools, the education to onboard people like mtnPay and the rest of the ecosystem who then drives in the users and then that it just spreads outwardly from there. So it's pretty incredible to watch right now, I'm not going to say, like I started last May about, next month will be my one year. And the difference in one year has made, like you said, even in September, you didn't have half the things that are available now. It's happening at the speed of light and it's, who knows? In one year from now it's going to be, again, unrecognizable. So I mean, it'll be unrecognizable in like six months, most likely or less. We'll see.TJ (28:57):Yeah. Just being along for the journey, I feel grateful.Chase (29:00):Yeah.TJ (29:01):Just what a point in time that we're in. I was talking with Edgar the other day, I was like, we got to remember, we're in the good old days right now.Chase (29:08):I guess, to round this off and you kind of already touched on this and I always do this at the end of every single episode of the show is, to just give some advice to whoever you want to give to advice to, maybe it's the new devs looking to come into blockchain that might be scared or intimidated by just the name, blockchain, scares some people.TJ (29:30):I mean, just start. Just start and just build. There's so many opportunities within yourself to push things off and it's so easy to complain or give yourself reasons to not build stuff. Even within myself every day I'd catch myself either complaining or giving excuses or whatever. But reality is, just build because when you just start building, you'll figure it out. You can ask the questions, you'll get there. And then that building really gives you momentum to keep going.Chase (30:09):Yeah man.TJ (30:10):Yeah. And it attracts people to you and then those people are going to give you energy and it just, it all cycles. But you have to be the one to start.Chase (30:21):Yeah. I mean, I don't think anybody's really given that advice and it is, like, we're all engineers, we've all just put things off. We all have 200 projects that we started one night and then never got back to. So it's really just getting started and just following through.TJ (30:35):Yeah. And don't be afraid to chase the energy. There's so many things I've tried doing in Solana that I would work on for a week and then stop. But even now I go back to them and they're just tools in the belt. And you'll be able to leverage learnings later on.Chase (30:51):Yeah. For sure. Well, TJ, congratulations for winning the Riptide Payments Track with mtnPay. Glad to get you on the show. Glad to have a conversation. Love the energy. Just keep it up, man. And thanks again for doing what you do. And thanks for being here.TJ (31:09):Yeah, no, I appreciate the opportunity. I feel there's definitely the longest we've been able to chat for how long we've known each other. It's funny. I feel like we kept missing each other in Miami. So, I'm glad we got this opportunity and hopefully I'll see you in The Bahamas.Chase (31:23):Thanks for coming on.

Swiz' told us how he discovered computers at a very early age and how the planets aligned.

In this episode, Dave and Jamison answer these questions: I just hired someone as my direct report who is very, very smart, and has a great background. Ivy undergrad CS, Ivy grad school, and big tech experience. This is great! Except… he's definitely much smarter than me. I slacked my way through a liberal arts degree, and have worked only for small startups my whole career. I've gotten by, but I'm no 10xer. How do I be a good manager for him considering all this? I want to help him grow in his career and be a good resource for him, but I don't know what I have to offer. Should I just give him my key to the nonexistent middle manager cafeteria, and say, “I work for you now? Hi, I have a question about how to handle being confused in certain team meetings. It happens when the meeting is about discussing a certain problem to solve and most participants are much more up to speed with the issue being discussed. What ends up happening is that they discuss things fast, while I am hardly following and wondering if I should even be there. That is painful to me, because I'm aware that I'm not contributing much, while my time there is wasted and spent half trying to follow and half stressing out thinking what I should do. I guess that in order to contribute I would need to ask to be brought up to speed. Which I find a bit tricky because I'll be asking myself: is it because I missed something? Or is it because of something I actually couldn't possibly know? And secondly, should I have it clarified, which would disrupt the discussion and draw it out for others (especially if I need to go back to something that the group already went over)? Or should I address this completely differently, for example by requesting meeting agendas and preparing questions before the meetings? I'd love to hear your thoughts on how to tackle this, because it's a pain every time it happens.

In this episode of the Love Selling Hate Sales podcast, Joshua talks to Area Vice President for Enterprise Sales for Salesloft, Amanda Georgoff. Amanda talks about the rocky road of building out an enterprise sales organization within Salesloft, and all the lessons learned along the way. Between creating new processes, determining what kind of sellers to hire, and creating a partner ecosystem, enterprise sales does not look like a walk in the park. However, the crucial thing to remember is that building an enterprise sales organization from scratch is a marathon, not a sprint. It's not supposed to be quick nor easy. HIGHLIGHTSBuilding out an enterprise sales organization is a complex processGoing into enterprise sales will change your whole organizationYou'll need people who can hit the ground runningThe highs and lows of working with partners How software can help boost productivity for your sellers Enterprise sales is a marathon, not a sprintQUOTESAmanda: "The strongest enterprise sales organization is one that is surrounded by an internal group of resources, the best post-sales support." Amanda: "Going up market and entering the enterprise is such a collaborative, organization-wide initiative. Because again, it has implications for product, it has implications for your post-sales organization, for CS and implementations, it has implications for finance, it has implications for your legal team, for your sales organization, for HR and recruiting. There's no part of our organization that hasn't been transformed by our growth in the enterprise." Amanda: "The people who've been really successful here are ones who've been able to come in and build alongside us, and be flexible, willing to roll up their sleeves, doers. I don't want someone who's gonna come into our organization and just think about a problem." Amanda: "For Salesloft, in our sales engagement category specifically, ultimately, the different facets of our platform will make your sellers more productive. Whether you're using our cadences, whether you're using our conversation intelligence which is native to the platform, our deals which is our pipeline management, our forecasting module, all of these things that comprise the Salesloft platform." Learn more about Amanda and Salesloft in the links below:Website: https://salesloft.com/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ageorgoff/About Josh Wagner: Josh is a growth advisor and the host of the Love Selling Hate Sales podcast.

RevOps: Explained Ft. Simon Luis-Earle RevOps is a brand new concept for most. RevOps is the unification of all functions to prioritize revenue as the primary objective. It's the toppling of silos that divide a company and keep teams from working together effectively. The goal is to implement cross-divisional ops, data practices, and a collaborative framework enabling marketing, sales, CS, product, and finance to work together.    Key Takeaways:  RevOps is the difference between "organized" and "optimized." A proper RevOps process is the true optimization of a revenue generation engine that drives each team to enable one another and collaborate effectively.    Getting to the next level requires a beast of an ops system. If you're looking to grow your company fast and in a way that is entirely scalable, then you need to start the unification process between your teams immediately.  Data is king. Poor data practices will lead to any and every problem you could imagine. It affects every aspect of a business, and not having a well-defined data structure and tracking process will make forecasting highly inaccurate and clarity or transparency near-impossible!    About Seamus  From financial institutions to high-growth startups, Seamus' diverse experiences enable him to captain the growing diverse team that is Carabiner Group as CEO. Today, he focuses on ensuring Carabiner remains the leader in the RevOps-as-a-Service space and ensures success for both the Carabiner team and the clients they serve.   Feel free to connect with Simon Luis-Earle or Rob Turley on LinkedIn or Follow Rob @TheRevOpsHitman on Twitter!    #DTRHpodcast #HighVolumeIsDead #RevOps #SalesOps #MarketingOps #Operations #Sales #Marketing #CustomerSuccess #Revenue #Growth #ProcessImprovement

If you're Andrew Cushman of Vantage Point Acquisitions, you'd probably argue that although multifamily has a bit more complexity than single-family rentals, it's still, by all means, profitable for the everyday investor.

Meagan Carboney is an avid face shaver known for her live tutorials highlighting this little-known beauty technique. As a self-made makeup artist, she discovered how face shaving completely transformed her skincare and makeup routine-and wanted to share it with women everywhere. After tossing out razor after razor, Meagan knew there had to be a better way. With a degree in product development and 20+ years in the fashion and beauty industries, Meagan's background helped her launch Jill: the world's first razor designed for female face shaving. Jill has perfected the art of the exfoli-shave with a patent-pending design shaped for a woman's face. It's a convenient, subscription-based, eco-conscious way to get your glow on, with guidance from Meagan on how to shave the right way. Jill's on a mission to normalize female face shaving so women around the world can proudly say #weshavetoo. Learn more at tryjill.com.   Here's what we covered on the episode: Meagan's Background + Pivot   How Meagan and I met in 2012 at yoga class when I was doing freelance graphic design, and how we've both been able to watch and be part of each other's journey  When Meagan was younger, she had the dream to move out of Iowa and move to California to pursue fashion, which is what she did after high school  After graduating from a fashion institute in California, Meagan landed her dream job on Rodeo Drive working for BCBGMAXAZRIA Meagan stayed in LA for 10 years, where she climbed the corporate ladder and had the job she truly wanted in marketing, where she still got to be creative - she worked directly under the owners of the company, which gave her a start-up experience that has helped her launch her brand   How Meagan met her husband at the same company in LA, and when they talked about raising a family, they decided to move back to Iowa  When moving back to Iowa, Meagan had to pivot her business because the fashion part of what she was passionate about wasn't there, so she ended up building her personal brand online and landed in the beauty space  In the online beauty space, Meagan would share tutorials, tips and would share about face shaving  Meagan talks about the multiple businesses she and her husband have had, one of them being her husband's videography business, which they still have today and have grown to do photography too   How Meagan saw her husband working full-time with a videography business on the side and decided she could make an income in addition to her full-time job, which is how she got into the social selling world and started earning commission through her social media  The unique story of how Meagan's partners for Jill found her through one of her face shaving videos on YouTube after deciding they wanted to create a sustainable face razor for women  When the world was shut down due to the pandemic, that's when Meagan and her partners were on zoom building the Jill brand - they launched in February 2021  Meagan shares that all 3 of them are co-founders of the brand and her gratitude for pivoting in her business that led her to where she is today    Jill's Benefits + Mission for Sustainability    Right now, Jill is an at-home dermaplaning (face shaving) solution for women - they have a starter kit that customers can buy, and they have a subscription for the blades Women have more sensitive skin, which is why they cannot use the same razors or techniques as men - Meagan's 3 Cs to dermaplaning at home, which means having a clean face, clean hands, and clean blades for shaving  Not only does dermaplaning remove the facial hair, but Meagan explains that it also exfoliates the skin, so your makeup goes on much smoother instead of sitting on top of peach fuzz and dead skin cells  Meagan shares that the motion of dermaplaning stimulates skin cells, helping to produce more collagen, and also has long-term benefits such as smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and lightening dark spots   One thing I like about Jill is that they offer a smaller razor for your eyebrows      The story behind the name Jill, which comes from the nursery rhyme Jack & Jill - Meagan likes to say, move aside Jack; it's Jill's turn because Jack got so much attention in face shaving for years      How a lot of Jill's competitors are afterthoughts of big companies that don't have much of a brand, mission, or education behind the product, which is why it was so important to Meagan and her partners to create a beautiful product, but one that also had the full on brand experience that brought education and their mission  Because they wanted their product to be feminine, they picked the color pink for their brand, and when it came to the design, they knew they wanted it to be soft, airy, pretty, and unlike anything else that was on the market  Meagan shares that they have been improving their product since launching it and are already working on a rebrand which will make it even better  How they wanted their product to be sustainable - Meagan explains that when designing the wand, which holds the blades, they knew they didn't want to use a lot of plastic, wanted to use recycled plastic, and also knew they wanted the blades to be recyclable as well  Meagan shares that they worked with their manufacturer to create a tab that removes the medal from the plastic because the guidelines are set that if there is metal in plastic, it cannot be recycled, which is why our landfills are full of razors   Launch Strategy      With their marketing strategy, they had to go the organic route and were built on TikTok Meagan shares - they put all their marketing funds into hiring creators who were good at creating content with their product A month before their launch, they started building out their TikTok and started creating viral content with a waitlist for their product - the waitlist was 5,000 people  At the time, they didn't have the funds to do a paid media strategy as they do now, which ended up helping them because 70% of their sales still come from organic reach How they tapped into the education and science behind their product while tackling the myths behind shaving your face on TikTok Meagan talks about how they found and reached out to creators to help them - she shares they would pay the creators and send them concepts that they ran with In the beginning, Meagan would do a lot of the content creation herself - she still does today and has launched her own TikTok, where she's been posting 6 times a day  Where Meagan came in strong for content creation was the hand content, like shaving fruit, which is one of the reasons they went viral   When they first launched, they predicted that 20% of their business would be membership and 80% would be one-time purchasers, but in their launch, they had a 60% subscription rate   Within 2 weeks, they sold out of their memberships which was a bummer, Meagan says, because they misprojected, and the memberships were out of stock for 4 months  Creating a community through membership has been huge for the Jill brand and is something Meagan wants to focus more on so she can connect with these women and dive more into their mission One thing they've learned is that everyone has a different hair growth rate, so they are working towards being able to offer more razors at a time so those who need to shave more often can do so  Looking back, Meagan shares that she wishes she would have known more about the fundraising side of business and shares that direct to consumer is not favored in the venture funding space right now   Meagan explains why they need to be able to grow in both ways, direct to consumer and retail   How Meagan is starting a podcast called, The Skinclusive, where she is going to have guests on, and they will shave together Meagan shares that moving forward she will be focusing on building her TikTok, which she loves    Connect with Meagan on Instagram and follow Jill on Instagram     Links mentioned:   Try Jill    Connect with Meagan on Instagram  Jill on Instagram  Jill on TikTok Connect with Meagan on TikTok   Like what you heard?  Click here to subscribe + leave a review on iTunes.
