Many of the world's most successful businesses began as someone's good idea. But the path from startup to conventional financial success typically involves going public, prioritizing shareholders' interests, and ultimately selling to a giant conglomerate whose intentions are far from the original mission of the business's founders. In this episode, Laura interviews guests who say this conventional path of success is desperately in need of an overhaul. Why must new and innovative ideas come to market through old and undemocratic platforms? What if rather than selling out, successful businesses became community assets that put ownership and governance in the hands of workers and even consumers? Could a startup become a means of building community wealth, economic justice, and accountability over our technology? Our guests explain how.  (note:  legacy show, repost) Guests:Pia Mancini, Co-Founder & CEO, Open CollectiveLauren Ruffin, Co-Founder, CruxNathan Schneider, Assistant Professor of Media Studies & Director Media Enterprise Design Lab, University of Colorado Boulder We do not accept advertisements or government funding.  We are independent movement media for the people, and funded by the people!  Become a member by making a one time donation or make it a monthly contribution at https://LauraFlanders.org/donate

Australian Finance Podcast

It's estimated that over 250,000 Australians are part of the gig economy, which includes side hustlers with 9 to 5's and those working full time in the gig economy. So chances are many of our listeners have tried their hand at a side hustle or freelance work arrangements at some point. Although gig economy work can provide greater flexibility and choices in your day to day work, it can be very unpredictable and uncertain, on both your time and money, which can lead to financial stress. In today's episode of The Australian Finance Podcast, we're going to be taking a deep dive into the gig economy, which covers everything from ride sharing services like Uber to providing specific services for a fee, like taking on Airtasker jobs to assemble Ikea bookshelves or helping a small baking business with their social media.

Is Grind Culture Grinding Us Down?

The answer may depend on which generation you ask. With older ones having internalized it and younger ones glorifying it, grind or hustle culture has been around for hundreds of years and is embedded in the DNA of American exceptionalism. It is our work culture. For many, modern-day work culture involves working a regular job plus a side hustle, working multiple part-time jobs, or working well past 55+ hours per week in a full-time job. The truth is, left unchecked, grind culture can be harmful to your well-being and physical health, and is unsustainable as individuals and for corporations. But how do we stop grinding, when being overworked is often seen as a badge of honor with 4.2M Instagram posts tagged #riseandgrind, when society views it as a measure of success, or when some of us must work multiple jobs just to survive? With 1440 minutes in a day, the answer may be to take 5 of those minutes each day to make a conscious choice to power down, instead of always knuckling down. Start building your different work culture and get more out of life.

And then if you love it, take on another gig. Do baby steps with this.” - Vicky Oliver   Valuable Free Resource: How you can develop your skills, keep up with technology and find the right gig work with the help of a good network and the power of advanced technology: LinkedIn   Topics Covered: 02:08 - Challenge is finding a good mentor or a good network to surround yourself with and help you with your skills development 02:46 - Making the jump in their career without really being prepared for it: the common mistake business women leaders make when trying to take the next step to grow their career solo 04:45 - One free and actionable tip you can do when trying to prepare yourself for that awesome and fulfilling gig you've always wanted: I believe the most important thing is to keep all of your skills sharp, and particularly up to date.

A:  Let's say you get a new update, right? You know, you're there, you're on email, and you get a new update, right? You don't want to update because it's going to take time away from you.   Key Takeaways: “The most important thing is to keep all of your skills sharp, and particularly up to date. And that means learning. Learning new skills as you go along.” - Vicky Oliver “If you're a gig worker, and you're doing part-time jobs, and you're going from place-to-place freelancing, you really have to stay up on that technology. You have to be able to adapt and learn. And if you don't know it, know that you are able to figure it out as you go along.” - Vicky Oliver “That's just a reality that we have to sort of recognize the technology, we must build the skills. And it is time-consuming to do it. And I would say you have to do it when you have the opportunity to do it.” - Vicky Oliver “It takes a little bit of an adjustment, and you have to agree with it and it needs to agree with you.

In the work world the true generalist is very different from the specialist.The specialist tends to have a deep understanding of a certain content area while the generalist has a broader scope of the work landscape. The pros of being a generalist are understanding connections between departments and, theoretically, the ability to adapt to handling many different tasks. The cons include exhaustion from doing too many tasks over time (we tend to reward good workers with more work). The benefits to being a specialist include having a deep knowledge with less competition, but the cons include the need to avoid becoming obsolete as technology continually changes.The school of thought has always been that there are more opportunities for the Generalist. Are there? Has that started to change? As the Gig Economy begins to grow, and the work atmosphere is forever changed by COVID, it's becoming increasingly clear we are living in a Specialized World.Guest: Talia Beckett DavisPink Pearl PRFounder Women in PR Contact Taliatalia@womeninpr.catalia@pinkprfirm.compublicrelationsacademy.comhttps://womeninpr.com/Listen to Talia's previous episode on Stories and StrategiesOn AppleOn SpotifyDo you want to podcast?

Today, Debbie talks to writer and novelist Hilma Wolitzer, age 92. She's just published a new book of short stories titled "Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket." So yes, this is someone who is "making the most of growing older."Hilma's stories of sharply observed domestic life were published in the Saturday Evening Post and Esquire in the 1960s and 1970s. She has taught writing at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, the Iowa Writers' Workshop, NYU, and Columbia. She's also the author of nine novels and the recipient of national awards and fellowships.Her husband of almost 70 years died of COVID in the first months of the pandemic. It was as if he vanished, she told Debbie.She and her husband Morty both got Covid in April of 2020. They were taken to separate hospitals in New York City.She never got to say good-bye.He died two days before she was released from the hospital and went home to her apartment.As she tells Debbie on the podcast:"There were his slippers next to the bed. There was a pair of his drugstore eyeglasses. He seemed to have vanished and that was the sense I tried to depict in (the final) story (of her new book). Disappearance rather than dying." She was encouraged to write through her grief, and to write this story and add it to a new collection, by her daughters: New York Times bestselling novelist Meg Wolitzer and artist Nancy Wolitzer.She titled the new story, "The Great Escape." It is as diamond sharp and perfect - and funny - as her earlier writing. There's even sex.  Hilma tells it all in this conversation:What her writing process isWhy she writes about ordinary domestic lifeWhy and how she wrote through griefWhat it was like, over 50 years ago, to be a woman and a writer and not be taken seriously Mentioned in this episode or useful:HilmaWolitzer.comWikipediaTwitterThe Great Escape is Hilma‘s final short story in her new collection, Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket (Bloomsbury Publishing; 2021)Hilma is mentioned in the first sentence: One Million (New York Times, May 13, 2022)Hilma's daughter Nancy WolitzerHilma's daughter Meg WolitzerHow Hilma Wolitzer Came Back From Covid Tragedy To Publish Her First Book In 8 Years—At The Age Of 91 (Forbes, Oct 22, 2021)Author Hilma Wolitzer lost her husband to COVID-19.

They're the MVPs of our time – Uber drivers kept us fed during lockdowns and COVID outbreaks, even when we didn't know if a vaccine was possible. The job comes with huge safety risks (particularly for those on bikes) and instability. But it's looking like they're going to get a minimum wage and, oh, idk, like some basic job security. But does it mean the price of your Uber order is about to go up? And, we sometimes think volunteering is for Boomers and retirees with heaps of time on their hands, but we speak with three young people who found a way to fit it in, and say it's had a massive positive impact on them. Plus, save the bees! There's a deadly virus on the loose and they've gone into lockdown (sounds familiar) but will they be okay?

Today, Debbie speaks with Paula Span, a veteran journalist and the author since 2009 of the New York Times' column, The New Old Age. The column explores, as the Times' puts it, “the unprecedented challenges posed by a rapidly aging population.” That's a pretty broad topic so Paula covers everything from the cost of growing older, to social security for same sex couples, to stubborn aging parents, to the evolving status of medical aid in dying (MAID), formerly known as death with dignity. In 2017, after becoming a grandmother, she added a second Times column, Generation Grandparent. She's adapted those essays for her audiobook “The Bubbe Diaries,” released by Audible in 2021.She's also a revered professor of journalism, having taught at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism for over two decades. She is the author of “When the Time Comes: Families with Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions,” published by Hachette.She and Debbie talk about how she explores the topic of pernicious ageism for the Times - not with personal opinion - but with research and data and expert interviews. Each of her columns get a huge response with readers leaving as many as 500 comments.  They talk about her approach to writing as a freelance journalist (always say YES, she tells Debbie, no matter what the assignment is). And they talk about her artful approach to grandparenting. She lives in Montclair, N.J., and travels to Brooklyn once a week to care for her granddaughter.This is an intriguing behind-the-scenes peak at writing for the Times from a veteran journalist. Mentioned in this episode or useful:Paula Span - WebsiteThe New Old Age, Paula's column for The New York TimesGeneration Grandparent, Paula's occasional column for The New York TimesThe Bubbe Diaries by Paula Span (Audible, 2021)When the Time Comes: Families with Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions by Paula Span (Hachette, 2009)Paula Span at Columbia Journalism SchoolTallying the Cost of Growing Older by Paula Span (The New York Times, October 3, 2021)For Terminal Patients, the Barrier to Aid in Dying Could be a State Line (The New York Times, Nov. 13, 2021)Sally TannenBreaking the Age Code: How Your Beliefs About Aging Determine How Long and Well You Live by Becca Levy PhD (William Morrow, 2022)Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting by Anna Quindlen (Random House Trade Paperbacks; Reprint edition 2020)Jane E.

With the ascendance of gig work platforms like Uber, Fiverr, and DoorDash, it could be easy to be lulled into thinking that the space is fully matured. But there’s a new wave of gig working platforms that promise to add in Web3 Technology and the ability to accomplish more complex work. Our guest today, Matthew Spoke, is the Founder and CEO of Moves Financial, a fintech platform designed to enable the gig economy in Web3.About Matthew Spoke:Matthew Spoke is the CEO of Moves, the Digital Credit Union of the gig economy. Matt is considered a leader on the cutting edge of future-defining technologies and has spoken at dozens of tech conferences and written for Forbes, FastCompany, Coindesk, Financial Post, and TechCrunch.Matt is a strong advocate for the social benefits of decentralized technologies and created the Open Foundation, a not-for-profit focused on advancing blockchain technologies. He’s served as an advisor to governments on the regulatory implications of new technologies like blockchain on the future world of finance.In his former life, Matt was working as a CPA with Deloitte, when he discovered Bitcoin and became fascinated with the technology.A word from our sponsor:At Ripple, we manage all of our fund expenses and employee credit cards using Jeeves. The team at Jeeves helped get me and my team setup with physical and virtual credit cards in days. I was able to allow my teammates to expense items in multiple currencies allowing them to pay for anything, anywhere at anytime. We weren’t asked for any personal guarantees or to pay any setup or monthly SaaS fees.Not only does Jeeves save us time, but they also give us up to 3% cash back on our purchases including expenses like Google, Facebook or AWS every month. The best part is Jeeves puts up the cash, and you settle up once every 30 days in any currency you want, unlike some other corporate card companies that make you pre-pay every month. Jeeves also recently launched its Jeeves Growth and Working Capital initiative for startups and fast-growing companies to enable more financial freedom for companies. The best thing of all is that Jeeves is live in  24 countries including Canada, US and many other countries around the world.Jeeves truly offers the best all-in-one expense management corporate card program for all startups especially the ones at Ripple and we at Tank Talks could not be more excited to officially partner with them.

Now, through Guilded, the USFWC is using its expertise to bring the power of pooled benefits, collective purchasing, and collective advocacy to freelance and gig economy workers. Guilded provides contract management, invoicing, guaranteed payments, tax preparation and access to supplementary health care - so that its members can focus on their businesses, instead of the process for doing business.

Today, Debbie Weil talks to A'Lelia Bundles: her college classmate and friend of almost 50 years. A'Lelia, or LeLe, as her friends call her, is an award-winning journalist, author, historian, biographer, speaker and nonprofit leader. She speaks at conferences, colleges, and corporations about entrepreneurship, philanthropy, historic preservation, financial literacy and women's and African American history. She calls herself a truth seeker. She's also distinguished by her warm and humorous style. It's infectious, as you'll hear.She and Debbie are both members of the Harvard/Radcliffe class of 1974. (Another notable member of their class is Merrick Garland,  United States Attorney General.)A'lelia is the great-great granddaughter of Madam C.J. Walker, the 19th century hair-care entrepreneur, activist, and philanthropist, and the first black woman millionaire in America. She is the author of On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C.J. Walker, a New York Times Notable Book and the definitive biography of her trailblazing great-great grandmother. Self Made, the fictional Netflix series starring Octavia Spencer, is "inspired by" (although not factually based upon) her biography. A'lelia is at work on her fifth book, The Joy Goddess of Harlem: A'Lelia Walker and the Harlem Renaissance, about her great-grandmother whose parties, arts patronage and travels helped define the era. A former network television news executive and producer at ABC News and NBC News, she is a vice chair emerita of Columbia University's Board of Trustees and chair emerita of the board of the National Archives Foundation. She is the founder of the Madam Walker Family Archives, the largest private collection of Walker documents, photographs and memorabilia.Debbie and A'Lelia talk about not retiring, the pain of writing a book, and the importance of community and friends - especially the women in their college class. They discuss the legacy she wants to leave behind as a black woman and what she is looking forward to as she turns 70. Mentioned in this episode or useful:BioWikipediaWebsiteMadam C.J.
