Welcome back to The Viall Files! Today we have another special “where are they now” update show where we give you updates from our past callers to see what's happened in their situations and relationships since appearing on the show. We bring on our first caller, the infamous “Debbie,” who had originally called in regarding a strange text from a romantic interest, but has since started to date women and found herself pursuing drama instead of good partners. When we left off with her, she had begun to date someone new and seemed to be displaying healthy dating habits, but has she fallen back into her old ways? Our second caller had called in after a third attempt at a father figure had failed. Her stepfather had caused an immense amount of financial stress on her family, so we find out where their relationship is at now. Our third caller's father had destroyed their family by dating the woman he was interested in. We find out if his relationship with his father has mended at all, and where he is in his own dating journey. We also have some written updates - Our caller who was catching feelings for her prison pen pal, our caller who was trying to figure out if her guy friend is into her, and our caller who was debating tattling on her ex to his mom about his cheating in order to get him off her lease.

The most recent earnings report from Visa Inc. shed light on the company's current standing in the market. CEO Christopher Suh expressed confidence in the state of the consumer market despite the existing macroeconomic uncertainty during the earnings call with investors. Their assessment is based on Visa's stable business performance during the first three weeks of November, mirroring the trends from the previous quarter. As the global financial landscape braves headwinds like macro uncertainties, exchange rate fluctuations, and varying cross-border volumes, Visa continues to demonstrate solid performance. The resilience stems from its steady operation metrics, particularly the volume and number of transactions made. Adding to its robust performance, according to the company's executives, Visa has been quick to adapt to the evolving market dynamics. One notable change is the increased authorization and credentials for consumer payments. These changes have helped in boosting customer engagement levels. Additionally, Visa is exploring new avenues of money movement beyond just core consumer payments, thus expanding their sphere of influence. Visa's effort for more reach and influence is not limited to product enhancements. Geographical expansion of value-added services has been a key agenda for the company. The Visa Direct platform is a notable example of these efforts. Establishing new revenue streams, Visa Direct supports peer-to-peer transactions, fuels cross-border remittances, and offers support to gig workers. Strategic markets like Colombia have been crucial for the company's pursuit of growth, as stated during the earnings call. Visa's interest here is in increasing its processing share, a move that will do more than just expansion. It paves the way for the delivery of more value-added services. The future strategy of the financial giant seems to revolve around three key aspects: consumer payments, new flows, and value-based services. The company is endeavoring to solidify its client relationships further, chart new territories, and bring innovative solutions to the table. To make their services foolproof, Visa places a heavy emphasis on tokenization to prevent fraud, and aims to improve authorization rates. To sum it up, Visa Inc. appears to be confidently weathering any challenges that the prevailing financial climate presents, as declared in their recent earnings call. The ability to pivot and adapt is what bolsters Visa's resilience, underpinned by steady business metrics and a dedication to adapting as per their consumer's needs.

David H. Nachman, Esq. explains the P-3 visa, a non-immigrant, dual-intent visa for individuals in unique cultural programs. The visa is issued for up to 12 years and allows artists and performers to share their heritage and skills in the US. The P-3 visa's dual-intent feature also lets visa holders initiate the green card process without conflicting with their temporary status. Listen to this informative podcast episode to learn more about culturally unique opportunities with the P-3 visa.

What if every time you went to pay for something at a store, the clerk behind the counter had a different terminal for each card network - one for Visa, another for American Express, and a few others for local domestic networks? That was what much of the world was like decades ago - and it still is a bit like that in some countries today. But in 1999, collaboration entered the picture when Europay, Visa, and Mastercard came together to create a common specification for Chip and PIN so that any chip-enabled card could be read from any chip reader anywhere in the world if both complied with a common EMV specification. That significantly impacted Chip and PIN adoption - for merchants and consumers. Today, EMVCo supports seven EMV technologies. As a consumer, when you insert your card into a reader, “tap to pay,” or pay using Secure Remote Commerce, or as a merchant, accept payment through a mobile device or a QR code, support a tokenized card credential, or 3D Secure technology, you are benefiting from the work of EMVCo. In this episode, we talk with Oliver Manahan to understand how EMVCo fulfills its mission, catch up on its 2023 initiatives, and try to peek over the horizon to see what might be in store next for EMVCo.
Hello Creative Friends, This episode is a call. The culture has narrowly defined artistry in the past, and has limited the ways we engage with making things. It has become downright brazen to suggest that art can save us. But is it? This idea has certainly has been trumpeted from artists across space and time. But like many beautiful ideas, the practical implications get "lost in the sauce." For example: How does art save? Often it feels like a nice platitude, but in the face of really tough stuff, also a little like frosting. Can art truly heal humanity? If you've found yourself contemplating even a morsel of this idea, this episode is for you.

To paraphrase Visa founder Dee Hock, how many of you know Visa? Great, all of you. Now, how many of you know how it started? Or, for that matter, who started it? Who runs and governs it? Where is it headquartered? What's its business model?For the 11th largest market cap company in the world, Visa's history and strategy is almost shockingly unknown. A huge portion of the world's population uses their products on a daily basis (you might say Visa is… everywhere people want to be), but very few know the amazing story behind how that came to be. Or why Visa continues to be one of the most incredible and incredibly durable business franchises of all-time. (50%+ net income margins!! On $30B of revenue!) Today we do our part to change that.

How can brands incorporate sustainability and science into their core in an authentic way and avoid the trap of greenwashing? It is one thing to craft a sustainable brand on paper and a completely different story to integrate branding as part of the whole company and the whole customer journey, without greenwashing.

In this episode of B2BaCEO, I speak with Robert Nishihara, co-founder and CEO of Anyscale. Anyscale's aspiration is to build the fastest, most cost-efficient infrastructure for running LLMs and AI workloads. When it is successful, Anyscale will be to the AI era what Microsoft was for the PC era: the underlying operating system on which all AI applications are developed and run. Anyscale is built on Ray, an open-source compute framework that Robert and his co-founders developed as PhD students at UC Berkeley. Under the guidance of Professor Ion Stoica, who also co-founded Conviva and Databricks, the team sought to make distributed computing broadly accessible. Anyscale was then launched as a fully managed platform for Ray, making even the toughest problems in distributed computing easy for developers to tackle. Today, Anyscale is a billion-dollar business powering mission-critical AI use cases at companies like Amazon, Cohere, Hugging Face, NVIDIA, OpenAI, and Visa. If you've been a PhD student at UC Berkeley, created a popular open-source framework, and built a billion-dollar business on top of it, you've likely learned a thing or two along the way. Robert's story offers valuable lessons for fellow founders and builders at all stages of the startup journey.
