Layoffs, talk of an impending recession, employee burnout, and job search exhaustion have so many of us feeling like we've made the wrong moves, it's unsafe to make a change or that we have failed in some way. Failure is a scary word for so many of us. We've been brought up to believe it is the worst outcome and we should avoid it at all costs, but what if that is false? It's time to flip the fear of failure on its head. What if failure holds the clue to the wisdom we most need to learn? What if failure is a faster way to finding the solution?    In this episode, we dive into the importance of acknowledging failure as separate from yourself and your worth, the power in owning and honoring the stumbles you've experienced and how failure oftentimes is a key component on the path to living and leading authentically. There's also a bit of advice for managers in how they can create a more productive and inclusive performance review process.  Share your failure stories with us: www.nikkiinnocent.com/jointheconversation

Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.Alex, Natasha and Mary Ann got together with Maggie and Grace this week for our weekly roundup show, and per usual, there was a lot to talk about, including the fact that there were even more topics than usual to pick from as the summer slowdown seems to be fading away. What else did we get into? The following:To kick off our Deals of the Week, we discussed the fact that a startup which focuses on depression, suicidality and related mental health conditions is buying a company called KetaMD in an effort to extend its telehealth prowess and, in particular, to expand its tech-facilitated ketamine-based treatments. Don't know what ketamine is? You're not alone.From there, it was time to talk about a new $100 million fund, which boasts some high-profile LPs and partners, that is out to invest exclusively in Latino(a) startup founders. We then dug into the hows and whys of a fintech company that aims to get consumers to deduct everyday expenses directly from their paycheck – a concept that took us a bit to wrap our heads around.We then moved on to Robinhood and the news that the retail investment behemoth had laid off 23% of its staff – just 3 months after letting go of 9% of its workforce. The three of us had thoughts on CEO Vlad Tenev's acceptance of responsibility for the layoffs, and of course, on just how much dang news has surrounded the company in the past 18 months or so.https://twitter.com/bayareawriter/status/1554598033756667905Next up? We chatted about Y Combinator's somewhat surprising decision to shrink its cohort by 40% – what that could mean for the early-stage venture scene. We also get into its increased check size and in-person return. So many variables! Only one experiment!Lastly, we riffed about Uber and how the company both reported positive free cash flow and yet was deeply unprofitable in the second quarter (thanks to Alex breaking that down for us). And we had a blast to boot!

Indian startups are shedding the extra flab put on during the days of easy money. Layoffs and cost restructuring are the only way out for them now. Some of India's largest start-ups are in the middle of a transition. They are shifting from growth to profitability now.  Innovation has also been the key to the success of Adar Poonawalla. He has taken Indian vaccines to the US and European markets. In an interview with Business Standard's Sohini Das, Poonawalla tells about his plans, which include mass production of malaria vaccines, nasal flu vaccine and exploring a vaccine for monkeypox too.    Adar Poonawalla had recently asked Elon Musk to invest in India if his Twitter deal doesn't go through. The SII chief promised Musk on Twitter that it would be the best investment he would ever make. Meanwhile, the Indian rupee has reversed its slide recently amid a weakening in the US dollar index, and a halt in foreign investors' selling spree. We delve into the outlook for the currency and the sectors that can benefit the most from the current trend. Just like the equities, experts advise caution in purchase of property too. But how will you know if the house you are planning to buy is free of any litigation or any other problem. An Encumbrance Certificate will help you in that. Let us know more about it in this episode of the podcast.

We kick off today with a little chat about how useless vitamins are. So. There's that. It's still hot as Hades, the rowers lie to us (update: firmware fix seems to fix output!), and Meredith takes a road trip. Our guest today is the incredibly kind and bendy Ryn Tucker! Ryn is an instructor on the rower, Reflect, Stride, and Fitpass with her "specialty" being yoga where she has taught thousands of Echelots to bennnnnnnd. Her classes are magnificent and even Sheldon took a couple (that's a big deal if you know Sheldon). She also has an amazingly interesting journey. Professional dancer. Actress cred. Oh and degrees in Ancient Near Eastern Languages and Literature, because, "why not!" She lives her life with the goal of "do something that scares you" and it's one that has led her to us here at Echelon, so for that we are thankful! Find her Facebook group at Beautiful People of Echelon, her page Ryn Clem Tucker, and her IG accounts: ryn.tucker and dooryogagirl In industry news, Peloton may be re-releasing the Tread+ with new safety features and their Lizzo ride "breaks Peloton" (but I'm not so sure). They are also reopening their studio in August and folks are already complaining that the system is broken and that they can't get rides. Layoffs at Hydrow and Whoop. Nordictrack offering free equipment with a 4 year membership. Do we need a sleep robot in our lives? Oura rings now integrate with Strava. Echelon has some great deals themselves - get a free rower with 2-year membership, an ipad with 1-year membership of EX3 with 2-year membership.

Oracle laid off part of its U.S. staff earlier this week as part of its plan to layoff thousands in the U.S., Canada, India, and Europe. These layoffs were primarily concentrated in marketing and the customer experience (CX) department. Oracle's CX solutions include CRM products which compete with Salesforce, the leader in this space. Oracle Practice Leader, Jeff Lazarto, discusses what this may mean for this department moving forward. He also shares why he expects to see more layoffs tied to the massive, $28B acquisition of Cerner which was closed in June of this year. These layoffs come after talk of Oracle planning to announce an increase in support fees which would go into effect after December 1st, 2022.

This week, days before a call to investors that announced net losses and a “transitional” period for the company, Canadian tech giant Shopify laid off 1,000 employees – 10 per cent of its workforce. Not long ago, Shopify's numbers told a very different story. The online shopping juggernaut hit it big during the pandemic, at one point becoming the most highly valued company in Canada, with a market cap of $177 billion. CEO Tobias Lütke announced this week that during the pandemic the company made a bet – that online shopping would “permanently leap ahead” by years – and hired accordingly to meet the growing demand. “It's now clear that bet didn't pay off,” he said. To break down where the company goes now – and what this says about the tech industry more broadly – Temur Durrani joins us from the Globe and Mail.

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending July 9th, 2022... why the job market is reducing recession anxiety, the big mortgage rate turn-around, and Airbnb's contest for unique listing ideas.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week. The job market is showing a lot of muscle, despite concerns about a recession. The government reported last week that companies created a whopping 372,000 new jobs in June. That's well above Wall Street estimates for 250,000 new jobs. (1)Companies may have a hard time filling all those positions however due to a severe labor shortage. As reported by MarketWatch, there are two open jobs for every person looking for one, or about 11.3 million job openings. (2) Layoffs are also at historically low levels, including the number of people working part-time because they had their hours reduced. The report says there are 3.6 million involuntary part-timers. That's the lowest level in 21 years. (3)Despite that good news, the unemployment numbers are up slightly for last week. The Labor Department reports that initial claims were up 4,000 last week, to 235,000. That's the highest level in six months. They were as low as 166,000 just four months ago. (4) But unemployment is still at 3.6% and the big picture is that job creation and hiring are strong. ZipRecruiter chief economist Julia Pollack says: “This is not what a recession looks like.”St. Louis Fed President James Bullard is also seeing signs of economic strength. He's predicting economic growth for the year despite the slowdown we're already seeing due to the Fed's rate hikes. He says he's basing his calculations on “gross domestic income” instead of “gross domestic product.” The GDI is the income that's earned on the production of the GDP. While the GDP has already contracted in Q1 and may have done so in Q2 as well, Bullard says the GDI shows that the economy is actually expanding. (5)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates did a big U-turn this last week. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage dropped 40 basis points to 5.3%. The 15-year fell 38 points to 4.45%. (6) The drop in rates along with a 5.4% drop in mortgage applications is a sign that the housing market is cooling off. (7)In other news making headlines...On-Time Rent in UnderwritingFreddie Mac is making it easier for some renters to qualify for a mortgage. As of July 10th, Freddie is including on-time rental payments in its underwriting system. (8)Freddie started encouraging landlords to report on-time rental payments to credit bureaus last November. It also offered an incentive in the form of closing cost credits for multifamily loans. That apparently attracted a lot of landlords.HousingWire reports that 70,000 households within more than 800 multi-family properties are now enrolled, and that more than 15,000 renters have been able to establish credit scores. Fannie Mae began a similar program last year.Rent Growth SlowdownThe latest rent report from Zumper shows a slowdown in rent growth. It says that rent levels typically peak during the summer because a lot of people are moving but this year, Zumper's National Index is up only .5 percent for one-bedroom apartments and down a big 2.9 percent for two-bedroom apartments. That lowers the national median price for a two-bedroom apartment to $1,707, and slightly increases the median rent for a one-bedroom to $1,421. (9)Airbnb Party Ban Now Permanent Airbnb's temporary party ban is now a permanent ban on “disruptive parties and events.” That includes open-invite gatherings as well as one-night rentals for a large crowd. Airbnb initiated a ban on “party homes” after an Airbnb shooting in 2019 that killed five people. It then called for a global ban on Airbnb parties at the start of the pandemic. (10)The global ban has reduced complaints by 44% but hasn't stopped them altogether. Airbnb says that people booking remote accommodations can often invite as many people as they want without getting caught. Airbnb says if they are caught, they could face consequences, including suspension or a permanent ban from the website.Airbnb OMG! FundOn a lighter note, there's still a few weeks left to participate in Airbnb's search for the craziest listing ideas, and the winners will get a hefty sum of money to make their crazy ideas a reality. Airbnb is funding the contest with a $10 million “OMG! Fund.” That's enough money to give 100 people $100,000 each to help finance these projects.The ideas will be judged on originality, feasibility, the experience the space will provide to guests, and sustainability. The deadline to apply is July 22nd. Check for a link in the show notes at newsforinvestors.com if you want to know more! The Airbnb announcement includes a lot of examples for inspiration.
