    172. More Than Money: Jason and David break down the Kyle Cooke Episode!

    enJune 06, 2024

    Podcast Summary

    • Trading Industry ComplexitiesThe trading industry presents unique business and personal challenges, requiring a nuanced approach and accountability from industry professionals.

      The Kyle Cook episode of Trading Secrets presented a unique blend of business and personal issues, making it a complex situation that required a nuanced approach. The business aspect involved examining potential problems within the industry and Kyle's company, while the emotional side dealt with the personal reactions and accountability of those involved. The episode was notable for its candid discussions, with Kyle taking responsibility for past actions and acknowledging the intensity of live TV shows like Watch What Happens Live. The episode received mixed reactions, with some viewers appreciating the depth and intelligence of Kyle, while others had judgments based on his public persona. Overall, the episode provided valuable insights into the trading industry, accountability, and the complexities of navigating personal and professional challenges.

    • Employee retention through vesting optionsCompanies can offer equity instead of large cash salaries to incentivize and retain employees, but implement a vesting schedule to prevent immediate departure and ensure long-term commitment.

      In the business world, particularly in startups, companies use a technique called vesting options to incentivize and retain employees. Kyle Cook, a guest on a recent podcast, explained that instead of offering large cash salaries, companies can offer equity in the business. However, to prevent employees from leaving immediately after being hired and vested with their equity, companies implement a vesting schedule. This schedule releases a percentage of the equity over a specified period of time, usually years. For example, an employee might be given 1% of the company after one year, 2% after two years, and so on. This way, the employee is incentivized to stay with the company long-term and contribute to its growth. It's an effective strategy for small businesses with limited resources to attract and retain top talent.

    • Small business equity investment riskInvesting in small businesses with equity involves high risk but potential for significant rewards. Consider a company's liquidity using the current ratio before investing. SBA loans can provide substantial financing but require full repayment.

      Investing in small businesses with equity carries high risk but also high reward potential. A small ownership stake in a company that gets sold for a billion dollars can make an investor wealthy. Current ratio, a measure of a company's liquidity, is an important factor to consider. If a business's current ratio is less than 1, it may indicate a lack of short-term liquidity. An SBA loan is a government-backed loan for small businesses, and it must be repaid in full with interest, unlike some grants or subsidies. SBA loans can provide significant financing for growing businesses but come with the responsibility of repayment.

    • Business Decisions vs Personal RelationshipsIn business, relationships matter, but they should not be the sole reason for decisions. Clear agreements and incentives are crucial to protect interests.

      The business world, especially in the entertainment industry, can be tough and unforgiving. Relationships are important, but they should not be the sole reason for business decisions. SBA loans, such as 7a loans, can provide significant financing for businesses, including working capital, equipment, and real estate. Craig and Kyle's situation highlights the challenges of competing against larger companies and the potential benefits of increased exposure and partnerships. However, it's crucial for business owners to consider their obligations and the potential risks involved in relying too heavily on personal relationships. Instead, they should establish clear agreements and incentives to protect their interests. While loyalty in friendships is expected, it's essential to separate business decisions from personal ones to avoid potential conflicts and ensure long-term success.

    • Clear communication in businessClear communication is essential to avoid misunderstandings and potential conflicts in business dealings, especially when personal relationships are involved.

      While personal relationships are important, it's crucial to have clear communication and legally binding contracts in business dealings. In the discussed situation, a family member and business partner, Kyle, felt betrayed when a friend and potential business collaborator, Ben, approached him with an offer that Kyle believed violated their agreement. Although Ben meant no harm, the lack of open communication led to misunderstandings and hurt feelings. The incident serves as a reminder that clear communication is essential to avoid assumptions and potential conflicts. Additionally, it's important to remember that friendships should not blur the lines of business ethics and professional conduct. Ben, Claudia Oshry, and Ben Sofer, on the other side of the situation, might be processing the events and considering how they can improve their communication and collaboration strategies in the future.

    • Canned cocktail business, CollaborationStarting a canned cocktail business and collaborating with others can lead to success through gained confidence and connections. Repairing relationships and focusing on the big picture are also crucial for business growth and potential acquisition.

      Craig, Hannah, and the speaker discussed the possibility of starting a canned cocktail business with the confidence and connections they've gained through their experiences. Additionally, there was a conversation about inviting Jay from "Summerhouse" on the podcast for an episode, and the potential for friendship and collaboration between Jay and Craig despite their differences. The speaker also emphasized the importance of repairing relationships and focusing on the big picture for business success. Furthermore, they expressed their excitement for the growth and potential of both Spritz and Loverboy, and their belief that both companies have the potential to be acquired for large sums in the future. Overall, the episode explored themes of entrepreneurship, collaboration, and the importance of maintaining positive relationships in business.

    • Communication and PerspectiveIn complex situations, there may not always be a clear-cut answer. Listen actively, understand different viewpoints, and work collaboratively towards a solution.

      In the discussion on More Than Money, Ben, Craig, Kyle, and the host had differing opinions on who was at fault in a hypothetical situation. The audience was encouraged to share their thoughts and give a rating in the comments. Ultimately, the host suggested that it's possible that no one was entirely in the wrong. The episode underscores the importance of open communication and considering different perspectives. It's a reminder that in complex situations, there may not always be a clear-cut answer. Instead, it's essential to listen actively, understand different viewpoints, and work collaboratively towards a solution. So, next time you're faced with a challenging situation, take a step back, listen, and consider the perspectives of all parties involved.

    Episode Description:
    This week, Jason is joined by Bachelor Nation’s newly engaged couple and fan favorites Joey Graziadei and Kelsey Anderson! 

    Joey walked away from his lead role on The Bachelor this past season after asking Kelsey to marry him. Since their season wrapped, Joey and Kelsey have spent their time traveling and spending as much time together as an engaged couple. Having come from two different career paths and geographical locations (Joey a tennis pro in Hawaii and Kelsey a project manager in New Orleans), they are now faced with the deciding factor of what is next for them personally and professionally. 

    Joey and Kelsey reflect on meeting fans at CMAfest and their impact on their audience, what goes into teaching tennis, where they saw their careers going prior to the show, how Kelsey and Joey ended up on the show, what role Jason played in Joey’s journey, and having important conversations in the fantasy suite. Kelsey and Joey also dive into the decision for Joey to move in with Kelsey in New Orleans, where they see their careers moving post show, discussing the influencer space and navigating other people being worried about their finances, and a few rapid fire questions. How many times has Kelsey been nominated for The Bachelor? Where do they plan on moving after the lease ends? What other reality show would they love to do? 

    Kelsey & Joey reveal all that and so much more in another episode you can’t afford to miss!

    This week, Jason is joined by real estate agent, entrepreneur, content creator, and working mom of two, Alex Hall!

    Many know Alex from her role on Netflix’s Selling the OC where she shares her personal and professional life working for the Oppenheim group in Orange County. On the show, Alex’s personable yet sometimes controversial character makes her one of the more polarizing members of the show throughout its three seasons. Being a native of Orange County, Alex leveraged her market knowledge to lead a successful real estate career before joining the Oppenheim Group in 2021. When she is not selling million dollar listings, Alex creates hilarious content with her social media following about her life as a working mom. 

    Alex gives insight to influencer trips, how rumors played a role in her experience in Dubai, the story behind how the date she brought to Dubai left her, the importance of making a statement to set the record straight on allegations, how it impacted her influencer deals, how she ended up on Selling the OC and joining the Oppenheim Group, and if she thinks being on the show is worth it. Alex also reveals that she is an experience girl when it comes to opportunities, how she challenges herself when filming the reality show to go against her initial instinct, her advice on the real estate market currently, what has changed in the industry with being able to market in the MLS, and the three most important things in the real estate industry. How often do they get paid for Selling the OC? Does she feel pressure when filming to create drama?

    This week, Jason is joined by founder and CEO of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, Todd Graves!

    Having come up with the idea for a chicken finger restaurant chain back in 1996, Todd took a true entrepreneurial path by funding the startup with an SBA loan and his own personal savings. 28 years later, Todd is now one of the 500 richest people in the world, being named to the Forbes and Bloomberg’s recent billionaire list. With over 800 locations in 40 states and five countries, 3.8 billion in revenue last year, Raising Canes is a name brand that on its own merit has become a pop culture icon to fans and customers everywhere. 

    Todd gives insight to the marketing strategy he has adapted over the years, the love of hanging out with inspiring people from all walks of life, how he was approached to be the lead for The Bachelor, how much of a hand he has in the company and what he wants to do long term with the business, his best advice for those who are expanding their business, working lease deals to open more restaurants for $100k, and coming together during crisis. Todd also reveals how they adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic, how staying privately owned makes a huge difference, the impact of Cane’s Love for the employees, how Post Malone got involved with Raising Canes, why he pushes someone with their own concept to open that, his thoughts on franchising, and what he think is next for Raising Cane’s.
