Taste Radio's hosts reflected upon last week's highly publicized deal between the Coca-Cola Co. and Constellation Brands in which the soda and spirit giants collaborated on a new Fresca branded RTD cocktail line, as well as other headlines from the past week, including a legacy beer company's dip into a growing pool of hop-centric drinks and news of Liquid Death's colossal funding round. They also discussed a flaming hot line extension for a not-so-NOSHy snack brand, why this month could be described as “Cannuary” for one member of the team and highlighted several new beverages and bites, including pancake-flavored puffs and a line of small-batch chai concentrates. Show notes: 0:37: The Softest Tee Ever. Plus, A Mixed Bag Of Bevs, Burning Bites And Big Apple Booze. – The hosts reminded listeners to review Taste Radio on the Apple Podcasts app and the team will send you a free T-shirt.

Later, Ray Latif broke out the snacks and the hosts collectively riffed on brands that are likely familiar to listeners and their versions of “Dry January.” Brands in this episode: Fresca, Coca-Cola, Jack Daniel's, Topo Chico, Sierra Nevada, HopLark, Liquid Death, Cocaine Energy, Doritos, Like Air, RIND, Fly By Jing, Recess, Kimbala, Jack & Annie's, Wunder, Moon Intergalactic, Waterford Whisky, Strykk, Everleaf, Great Jones Distilling

With the onset of the new year, everyone is pouring fuel into their business intentions for 2022, especially when it comes to marketing. In this episode, Nick talks to Phillip Stutts, the best-selling author of 'The Undefeated Marketing System', and a man who has used his considerable talents and skills in marketing to aid in over 1400 election victories and 3 presidential victories. Phillip joins Nick to talk about the art of marketing, and how you can truly influence minds and decisions in order to not just reach your target audience, but to convince them of your message. KEY TAKEAWAYS We excel when we aim high. There is no sense in playing it safe in order to score mediocrity. If we push ourselves then we try harder, fly higher, and achieve more. Many people who do extraordinary things are fundamentally flawed in other areas. Nothing pushes us harder to succeed than feeling as though we might fail entirely. Relying on one single channel when it comes to sales and marketing is never wise, especially if we do not own the data or the system. Competitors can always use processes to keep us down or affect sales. Look for ways of centralising your output and owning the data. We lack empathy in our society. People across the world seem currently obsessed with telling their own stories. Empathetic marketing begins with looking at data and coming to understand what matters to the world around us instead of ourselves BEST MOMENTS 'What I loved about it is the game - the marketing game behind how politicians get elected' 'A lot of people who do extraordinary things are flawed characters' 'The marketing world is rigged for almost every single business out there' 'My mission in life is to wake up business owners' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment Phillip Stutts - https://www.winbigmedia.com/phillip-stutts ABOUT THE HOST Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

This is our Wednesday show, where we niche down to a single topic and dive deep. This week Natasha and Mary Ann and Alex came together to talk about the changing nature of due diligence in the startup market.The chat was loosely centered around a piece that the three of us wrote as 2021 was coming to a close, but the conversation quickly broadened to include a host of factors that are impacting how startups fundraise, and build today.Mary Ann talked about the power of FOMO, and how that particular social factor is impacting how startups raise. Natasha brought up the importance of back-channeling, and how founders talk to one another. And Alex tried to tease out the difference in how funds of various sizes will approach doing their own diligence, or letting others take on the work.It was all very good fun! You can read the original backing piece on TC+ here, and we're back Friday!

If you're not familiar with jackfruit, you're not alone. The fruit, while long valued by the vegan community for its sinuous meat-like texture, is relatively unknown among Americans. Annie Ryu, the founder and CEO of The Jackfruit Company and sister brand Jack & Annie's, is aiming to change that. Over the past decade, Ryu built the largest global supply chain for jackfruit, also referred to as “jack,” a high-yield yet underutilized crop that grows in warm and tropical climates. Amid a growing number of Americans embracing plant-based lifestyles, jackfruit has gradually appeared in natural and conventional grocery stores across the U.S. where brands like The Jackfruit Company process, package and sell it as a plant-based alternative to chicken, pork and beef. Launched in 2015, The Jackfruit Co. markets jackfruit-based ready-to-eat meals and ingredients that are sold in approximately 6,200 stores across the U.S. In 2020, the company introduced Jack and Annie's, a spin-off brand designed for mainstream consumers. Jack and Annie's sells plant-based nuggets, wings, meatballs and sausages that are available at 1,500 stores including those of Whole Foods, Sprouts, Wegmans, and Target. Last month, the company announced a $23 million Series B round which will be deployed to help expand distribution and build awareness of Jack & Annie's. In an interview featured in this episode, Ryu spoke about her initial vision to support farming communities in India by incentivizing production of jackfruit, how she began building the company while still an undergraduate student at Harvard, how Jack & Annie's is positioned within a competitive set for plant-based meat and what she's learned about entrepreneurship and the value of persistence. Show notes: 0:44: Annie Ryu, Founder/CEO, Jack & Annie's – Ryu and Taste Radio editor Ray Latif riffed on Jack & Annie's plant-based sausages, why the entrepreneur became a vegetarian, how she became the valedictorian of her class at Harvard and why she shifted focus from a career in medicine to public health. Ryu also discussed jackfruit amid the rise in awareness and consumption of plant-based meat, identifying the right messaging to attract retail buyers and consumers and how she initially raised funds for the company via pitch competitions and angel investors. Later, she discussed the development of the Jack & Annie's brand and its packaging, why she's never been discouraged by the length of time it took to build her company, why education continues to drive her and how she aligns with like-minded advisors and investors. Brands in this episode: The Jackfruit Company, Jack & Annie's, Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat

I am not that person. I am definitely more drawn to the creative process of researching, learning, and growing.”“I would say productive, direct communication and not sweating the small things is incredibly valuable, and it's brave. It's brave to talk about things that are uncomfortable.”“Just knowing that the challenges will come and keeping my knees bent, you know, meeting them with my best thought processes and problem solving skills is really the best you can do and, and rolling with it”“The lesson I had to learn the hard way was knowing when it was the right time to make my transition from CEO to founder and bringing in the right person to help scale the business.”“Hire someone amazing and then give them the room to do their amazing work.”“Expecting some challenges and being ready to meet those with a lot of flexibility and determination is just part of it. So if, if you're up for both sides, you know, the freedom and the hard work and the challenges, then I can't think of a better career.”

Jim Steele, President of Global Strategic Customers at Salesforce, is the man, the myth, and the legend who helped increase Salesforce's revenue from $22 million to over $5 billion. Working since he was 10 years old to support his family, Jim's drive and ambition are still just as strong today as he views new challenges and opportunities with a “beginner's mindset.” As Jim puts it, his 43-year career in sales is a series of stories–in this episode, he reflects on poignant moments that helped shape who he is as a leader in the industry.

Through his stories, Jim emphasizes an important theme—building authentic relationships—and explores the value of remembering people's names and faces. Jim also discusses the incredible growth of Salesforce, offers takeaways from his 12-year experience, and opens up about his return to the company. In this episode, we cover: Chateau de Steele: the story behind Jim's Beaver Bar and his legendary open house. (01:49) How Jim became the first chief customer officer, ever - and he describes the lasting effect of his first job at 10 years old.

One of the main roadblocks we can face when trying to achieve more, is the failure or inability to say no, which can lead to overwhelm and a lack of momentum. In this week's show, Nick tells you why the key to productivity might be to say no more often... KEY TAKEAWAYS Many do much work on building the plan, the process and the strategy. But we must recognise that the real key to success is in the outcome. When we become overwhelmed, it makes identifying the next logical step forward that much more difficult. We have to focus on the tasks that move us forward and say no to the ones that stop our momentum. The difference between successful people and VERY successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything. There is always one task you can do first, which will allow the others in your life to be successfully completed more effectively BEST MOMENTS 'Develop an amazing ability to say no' 'If we don't focus, we get ourselves into a position of overwhelm' 'That creates a cycle which allows you to iterate, improve and go on' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment ABOUT THE HOST Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

We're getting back up to full speed this week, so Mary Ann and Alex along with Grace behind the scenes took on our Friday show. Next week Natasha and Chris are back, and we'll do our regular three-show lineup. Today, however, despite a smaller team we had just as much as always go chew through:OpenSea's epic new fundraise: Alex did a little Fun Math on the company's trading volume and possible revenue totals. The gist is that OpenSea is a big business. But with NFTs as volatile as they are, charting regular growth will prove difficult.During our crypto chat, we also dug into the Web 2.0 vs. web3 debate that has been raging.From there we pivoted to fintech, with notes on Petal's funding round, Ribbit's new fund, and how Mexican fintech Bankaya is going after its target customers via offline methods.Then it was notes on the private and public markets' dissonance, and a few moments to complain about COVID.We are back Monday morning! Chat you then!

On Monday we saw the fraud conviction of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes. This conviction we are told in the press has split Silicon Valley. Supporters worry that the spirit of entrepreneurship has been put in ‘jeopardy' while others say she overstepped boundaries.Tim Draper, a venture capitalist and family friend of Holmes who provided early funding to Theranos, told the New York Times that the outcome made him “concerned that the spirit of entrepreneurship in America is in jeopardy”. He went on to say “I still believe in what she was trying to do, If this scrutiny happened to every entrepreneur as they tried to make this world a better place, we would have no automobile, no smartphone, no antibiotics and no automation, and our world would be less for it.”We have more corporate fraud trials in the pipeline. Former Nikola CEO Trevor Milton is scheduled to go on trial for criminal fraud shortly. He has pled not guilty to lying to investors about the electric truck company's technology. Nikola Motors went public through a SPAC merger under Milton's leadership.Peter Thiel Book - Zero To One: https://amzn.to/3F3KtGNPatrick's Books:Statistics For The Trading Floor: https://amzn.to/3eerLA0Derivatives For The Trading Floor: https://amzn.to/3cjsyPFCorporate Finance: https://amzn.to/3fn3rvC Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/PatrickBoyleOnFinanceVisit our website: www.onfinance.orgFollow Patrick on Twitter Here: https://twitter.com/PatrickEBoylePatrick Boyle On Finance - YouTube Channel Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/PatrickBoyleOnFinance)
As an endurance athlete with a zest for adventure, Sonja Wieck explores the bigger questions in life and while pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Sonja joins Nick for a very special episode, in which she talks about her perspective when it comes to achievement, why struggling against adversity is a gift in itself, and why focus and persistence are the key to success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Running towards acceptance and love from those we value most, can provide an extra level of dedication that allows us to reach higher than we may suppose Whatever goals you have set for 2022, we only fail if we stop trying. Dig in, get focussed, and be clear about your why. Visualisation can make the difference between breaking through the finish line and becoming an also-ran. Be clear about what you want, and try to visualise the challenges you may face along the way in order to help you prepare beforehand. Often we do not recognise that the fruits of the race come from not winning or even competing, but from the efforts we put it before. The journey is where the value lies. BEST MOMENTS 'What I know now is that I really only take action if something lights me up inside' 'The struggle is the gift' 'I can be pretty stubborn when it comes to my own internal light' 'When you win and when you lose, you have to come to terms with who you are as a person' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment Go Sonja - https://gosonja.com ABOUT THE HOST Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Todd Carmichael wants to add a bit more sparkle to your water. But not the kind you're used to. Nearly three decades after he co-founded pioneering third-wave coffee brand La Colombe, Carmichael is once again breaking new ground with the launch of innovative “shimmering water” brand Loftiwater. Launched in December, Loftiwater debuted a few weeks after Carmichael stepped down as CEO of La Colombe. In the months leading up to and following his departure, Carmichael, a serial innovator, spent dozens of hours in his basement lab attempting to find a way to create a different, better kind of sparkling water experience. The result was Loftiwater, a new brand of sparkling – but importantly, not carbonated – water. Instead, the company uses a blend of gases to create what it describes as “a galaxy of sweet velvety microbubbles.” Packaged in 14 oz. plastic bottles and available in six flavors, the drinks contain no calories, sugars or preservatives, yet are “deceptively sweet,” according to the brand's website. In an interview featured in this episode, Carmichael spoke about the reasons behind his decision to leave La Colombe, how the pandemic influenced his mindset and inspired a fresh start, his ambitious vision for Loftiwater as a third option for restaurant diners and why the brand's early start included a chartered plane to Venezuela. Show notes: 0:44: Todd Carmichael, Co-Founder, La Colombe & Loftiwater – Carmichael and Taste Radio editor Ray Latif began their conversation by riffing on the roller coaster that was 2021, their “dress down” business attire and why the La Colombe co-founder loves “The Matrix.” Carmichael also explained why he's more driven by obsession than fear, why he believes that “if it's easy to climb a mountain, you shouldn't be climbing it,” how he landed on sparkling water as the basis for his next beverage brand and how he intends to drive trial for Loftiwater. Later, he spoke about why he describes Loftiwater as “The Third Water,” why he's optimistic about the future of La Colombe despite his departure, why he chose to build a production facility rather than work with a co-manufacturer and the musical analogy for explaining why he decided to stay in the beverage business. Brands in this episode: La Colombe, Loftiwater, Vitaminwater, BodyArmor, Stirrings, Spindrift

In This Episode You'll Hear About:What is was like growing up in a holistic household, having a thirst for knowledge and dreamingHow having the thirst for knowledge led to her getting three different degrees and starting her career at MicrosoftWhat she learned in her time at Target in her many different roles and how that taught her how to scale her businessWhat led her to creating Rae and collaborating early on with TargetHow the name Rae came to be for the brand and why she was so against it at first but realized it was actually the perfect nameWhat she's learned from fundraising and where she sees Rae going in the future years to comeTo Find Out More:https://raewellness.co/Quotes:“Target is one of the most incredible companies from a leadership perspective. What that means is there is so much inherent focus on the human, as well as the business, and they're really, really balanced in their approach.”“Prioritization and discipline are my biggest challenges. You can do ten things okay, or you can do three things exceptionally well and get them over the finish line and execute really well.”“Once your life becomes more full, you're almost pushed into a place of prioritization and discipline and kind of reassessing that list.”“I just kept saying, I don't know where I'm going. And I don't know what I'm doing, but I believe for the first time, and maybe forever, I figured out my why, and that is personally and professionally needing to chase wellbeing. Not only for myself, but for a lot of women that I knew felt the same way.”“I had an idea and I was really heads down in pursuit of figuring it out and seeing how big it could be, but for me to impact lives and to make a viable business model with unit economics and all of those things, I knew I had to build the business model around scale so that I could get that amazing product at the price that I know so many, so many women deserve.'“I wanted to create a brand that helped women realize wellness doesn't have to be a full-time job. It doesn't have to be expensive and it should be for everyone.”“I do believe some of it is serendipity and luck and, if you want to call it manifesting or whatever it is for you, but I also worked my tail off to find that manufacturer. I would say it's intertwined.”“There are tremendous barriers to scale and it's really hard to scale and especially to get into retail right now. So the more you can, go fewer, deeper, bigger, and have a collaborative conversation.” “As an entrepreneur, it's our job to bring things to the world that don't exist.” “Part of raising capital is finding your pocket of people that support what you do and getting one person to bet on you. That starts the domino effect with momentum.”“It is so important to live your truth and be yourself.”“Take how long you think it's going to take, figure out how long you think it's going to take. And don't two exit five exit, because that's really how long it takes to get the confirmation or to figure out the system to do that or the process. For all those reasons,it's the belief that it will all work out, but the patience to get there is really, really hard. And I'm constantly learning that.So you're not alone if you're really struggling with your own patience level.”

As is tradition on the show, we used the last episode of the year to make predictions about the next year. To continue an annual tradition, Grace and Chris joined Natasha and Mary Ann and Alex on the mic, a rare treat and one simply for your enjoyment. Expectedly, they had a lot to say.So what did we manifest for 2022? Here's a sampling:We're bullish on climate-focused startups: A notable theme from a number of us was the importance of climate startups, and how many types of startups are going to have a climate-flavor. In short, as the planet changes, it's going to touch just about everything. And if sustainability is not your entire pitch, it's going to be at least a strategy soon enough.We had a lot to say about crypto: Sure, we're all a bit tired of talking crypto, but there's also no chance that we could get away from the topic when considering next year. The classic tension between reinvention and regulation continues to be a dynamic we all care about, and predict will be full force over the next twelve months.We're not nearly as bullish on media: The Buzzfeed SPAC had some of us bummed out, but when it came to creators and not just writers, we were a bit more positive. Everything is media, even if everything doesn't make money.Space is controversial: We won't spoil it, but the space chat got a bit spicy. The argument wound up showing an interesting issue in the tech space, namely is all the money going to where it will have the greatest impact?A big hug from the Equity team for your continued listenership this year. Thanks for sticking with us, and we're back in a heartbeat with another year's shows - some of which may even be in person!
