He emphasizes the importance of competitive tension, sharing real-world examples that demonstrate how having multiple parties interested in your offer can substantially improve your bargaining position.


    This clip provides a deep dive into a specific deal where Dean's company managed a billion-euro exit by keeping three interested parties in the game until the very last moment.

This approach significantly altered the negotiation dynamics, as every prospective buyer understood the urgency and high competition, allowing Dean and his team to avoid compromising over typical contractual conditions.


    Rashad and Troy also discuss related scenarios, including a sports league's experience with a major TV network, underscoring the necessity of having multiple bidders to maximize leverage. Dean offers a comprehensive view on the valuation process in the tech sector, explaining how standard industry formulas set a baseline and how companies can push the valuation higher by selling their strategic advantages and potential return on investment.


    For entrepreneurs and business enthusiasts, this conversation is packed with actionable insights. Learn how to navigate high-pressure negotiations and understand the critical role of competitive leverage.

    In this inspiring clip of Market Mondays, we have the honor of hosting Blacc Sam, brother of the legendary Nipsey Hussle, alongside our hosts Troy Millings, Rashad Bilal, and Ian Dunlap. Rashad kicks off the conversation by reminiscing about the solid relationship and brotherhood they've built over the past two years.

With the support of Microsoft and the Marathon team, the pitch competition promises to be a life-changing opportunity for a deserving entrepreneur.

  • Would police brutality drop drastically if every officer had to be licensed and insured?

    In this thought-provoking clip of Market Mondays, hosts Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings are joined by special guest William Wagstaff to tackle an issue that often gets overlooked in discussions of police reform – the financial impact of police misconduct. They delve into how police brutality and misconduct aren't just social justice issues but significant financial burdens on taxpayers.


    Rashad Bilal opens the discussion by drawing a parallel between police accountability and professional insurance policies, like errors and omissions insurance held by financial advisors, and medical malpractice insurance for doctors. He suggests that individual police officers should similarly be required to have insurance policies that can cover the damages resulting from their misconduct, thereby removing the financial burden from taxpayers.


    William Wagstaff explains the current system where municipal budgets often have line items earmarked for settlements arising from police misconduct. He emphasizes that funds used to pay for these settlements come from taxpayers and could otherwise be directed towards essential community services like senior programs, youth initiatives, parks, and mental health services.


    They highlight shocking statistics, such as 63% of local taxes typically going to school districts while the majority of people remain unaware of who sits on their local school boards. This lack of transparency extends to policing budgets, where significant taxpayer money is spent without public scrutiny or accountability.


    Wagstaff argues for creating a financial disincentive for police misconduct by advocating for mandatory insurance policies for police officers. This can lead to savings for municipal governments, better quality policing, and the redirection of funds towards community needs. Using examples like New York City, where millions are spent on police misconduct settlements without resulting in systemic change, he makes a compelling case for financial reform to drive better policing practices.


    Troy Millings and William Wagstaff then discuss the powerful influence of police unions such as the Police Benevolent Association (PBA), which often stand in solidarity whenever incidents occur, making systemic change difficult. To counter this, Wagstaff suggests improving transparency in policing and community relationships. He calls for local elections to become tools for accountability, where mayors and town supervisors hold the police accountable, and financial expenditures on policing are made public.


    Wagstaff also emphasizes the importance of recruiting police officers from the communities they serve. He recounts cases like the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, where the judge's bias was apparent. This, he argues, would be less likely if community members served as law enforcement officers, as they would view their interactions through a more empathetic lens.


    Combating the historical trauma between communities of color and the police, Wagstaff likens the relationship-building process to that of someone dating a partner with past traumas. He underscores the importance of understanding and patience in repairing these relationships and the need for police officers to act not just out of self-interest but genuine care for the communities they serve.


    In closing, Wagstaff proposes treating policing as a profession that requires high qualifications, education, and appropriate compensation. He argues that better-educated and qualified officers would improve the quality of policing and community relations. This episode of Market Mondays is a must-watch for anyone interested in the intersections of finance, policy, and social justice.

  • Cliff Notes: Cloud Seeding's Impact on Climate Change and Real Estate

    In this riveting clip of "Black Out with Ian & Rashad," our hosts dive deep into the controversial and fascinating topic of cloud seeding, its potential impact on violent weather patterns, and the consequential effects on climate change and real estate markets.


    *Episode Highlights:*


    *1. Introduction to Cloud Seeding:*

    Rashad Bilal starts the discussion by asking Ian Dunlap about cloud seeding and whether it could be responsible for the violent storms experienced recently in cities like Houston, Dallas, and Dubai. Ian explains that cloud seeding involves aircraft releasing chemicals into the atmosphere to stimulate rainfall, a practice especially prevalent in arid regions like Dubai.


    *2. Real-World Examples and Concerns:*

    Ian shares shocking real-world instances where cloud seeding has reportedly caused significant weather disturbances. From luxurious cars floating in flooded streets in Dubai to the increased frequency of storms in Texas, Ian emphasizes the unintended consequences of manipulating natural weather patterns.


    *3. Historical Context:*

    A clip is inserted to provide historical context, highlighting how cloud seeding has been utilized since the 1940s and its evolving technology. The clip elaborates on how silver iodide particles are used to enhance precipitation, revealing the scientific intentions behind these operations.


    *4. Climate Change and Its Global Effects:*

    The conversation then shifts towards broader climate change issues. Ian and Rashad agree on the evident warming of the planet, pointing out unusual weather patterns, including excessive rainfall in New York and rising sea levels that have submerged erstwhile islands in places like Puerto Rico.


    *5. Real Estate Implications:*

    Rashad delves into the real estate angle, discussing how climate change is transforming property values and desirability. He notes the gentrification of traditionally less desirable inland areas in Miami, which are now valued higher due to their safer elevation levels. Similarly, Rashad sheds light on the transformation of the favelas in Brazil and areas like Queensbridge in New York, where once-overlooked neighborhoods are now hot real estate markets because of their strategic locations.


    *6. Financial and Political Ramifications:*

    Rashad and Ian discuss how these environmental changes and weather manipulation tactics intersect with financial strategies and political decisions. They analyze how affluent individuals and entities, such as Bill Gates, are purchasing substantial tracts of land in flood-free zones, indicating a calculated response to anticipated environmental shifts. The hosts encourage listeners to observe these patterns for smarter investment decisions.


    *7. Closing Thoughts:*

    Ian concludes with a powerful reminder about the importance of understanding and respecting natural processes. He and Rashad agree that while technological advancements offer solutions, they can also create significant ripple effects, underscoring the need for cautious and informed interventions in nature.

  • The 2024 Election Breakdown - Trump vs. Biden & Key Political Dynamics

    Welcome back to another engaging clip of Market Mondays! In this clip, hosts Ian Dunlap, Troy Millings, and Rashad Bilal dive deep into the political landscape as we approach the 2024 presidential election. Join us as we dissect the dynamics between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, and explore what it means for the undecided voters, campaign strategies, and the potential outcomes.


    As the election draws closer, the hosts discuss opinions surrounding Trump and Biden, the impact of social media on political campaigns, and the role of undecided voters. Rashad starts the conversation by questioning if anything can truly sway a voter’s decision this late in the game, pointing out the theatrics that have become a staple in modern elections. Troy adds a different perspective, hinting that undecided voters, especially the younger demographic, might still play a pivotal role.


    The discussion moves deeper into the political experience of Joe Biden versus the fame of Donald Trump, and the staggering fact that many voters are still undecided. Troy and Rashad debate the influence of controversial topics like cryptocurrency on young voters, with Troy asserting that addressing such forward-thinking issues might attract undecided voters.


    The video also touches on Joe Biden’s long-standing career in politics compared to Trump’s relatively shorter yet impactful tenure. Ian Dunlap weighs in with thought-provoking questions about the nature of political allegiance in the modern era, and the importance of financial security as a deciding factor in elections.


    Later, the team analyzes the campaign strategies, focusing on how the presidential candidates are targeting specific states and demographics. Rashad elaborates on voter suppression tactics and the prevalence of negative political ads, while Ian references the historic nature of political debates and their significance in shaping public opinion.


    The conversation heats up as the hosts scrutinize the enthusiasm behind voter bases. Troy argues that anti-Trump sentiment might propel Biden forward, but Rashad counters that enthusiasm for Biden himself appears lackluster. This leads to a broader discussion about the core issues like abortion and how they consistently influence voting patterns.


    As the episode progresses, the team debates the potential outcomes of the election, considering the influence of financial stability and the controversial actions of both candidates. Ian, Rashad, and Troy offer their predictions and analyze the possible implications for the future of American politics.


    The episode concludes with a look ahead to the election, acknowledging the uncertainty and the critical factors that will ultimately sway the vote.

  • Study Hall: Will The Market Crash After The Election?

    Welcome back to another clip of Market Mondays! In this insightful discussion, hosts Ian Dunlap, Rashad Bilal, and Troy Millings delve into one of the most pressing questions of our time: Should we expect a stock market crash or correction following the presidential election?


    The conversation kicks off with Ian Dunlap laying out potential scenarios depending on who wins the presidency. If Trump wins, Ian mentions that he hopes Trump will remain as market-friendly as he was during his first term, offering some calm and relief to the market. Regardless of the winner, Ian emphasizes that there will always be some level of market pullbacks, which occur regularly, but he doesn’t foresee a significant correction due to the election results alone. According to him, factors like interest rates, quantitative easing, and global recessions hold more weight concerning market fluctuations.


    Troy Millings adds to the discussion, reminding us that uncertainty often leads to increased market volatility. He notes that historically, the best months for trading surrounds the post-election period from November to April, while May to October tend to be slower for the market. He supports his statements with data dating back to 1949, indicating that financial outcomes post-election tend to stabilize by September, preparing the market for the upcoming year.


    The hosts suggest looking at times of market pullbacks as opportunities to invest in quality companies. Ian Dunlap advises against trying to time the market for short-term gains and recommends focusing on strong, reliable companies like Apple, Microsoft, Nvidia, and Tesla. He also advocates for investing in indices and ETFs for long-term stability and growth.


    The hosts briefly touch on the impact of political policies on the market. Troy highlights how potential changes in tax policies and tariffs, especially concerning China, could affect the bottom line of many companies. These macroeconomic factors are crucial considerations for investors when crafting their strategies.


    Rounding off the episode, the hosts discuss individual stock picks like Archer Aviation. Ian and Troy remain skeptical about its potential, classifying it as a high-risk investment with limited prospects for substantial returns. They advise viewers to consider more reliable and reputable stocks over speculative ones.


    For newcomers and seasoned investors alike, this episode of Market Mondays Medium is packed with valuable insights and strategic advice on navigating the financial markets during uncertain political times. Watch now to equip yourself with the knowledge and confidence you need to make informed investment decisions!

  • Is Tesla Still a Top Investment?

    Welcome back to another clip of Market Mondays! In this clip, hosts Rashad Bilal, Troy Millings, and Ian Dunlap dive deep into Elon Musk's impressive portfolio and discuss the future potential of his various companies.


    The conversation kicks off with an intriguing look at SpaceX, which is considering selling shares at a staggering $200 billion valuation. Rashad Bilal poses two essential questions: What are Ian Dunlap's thoughts on this valuation, and how will SpaceX impact Tesla? Which of these companies should investors focus on if given the chance?


    Ian Dunlap sheds light on why he believes SpaceX and Starlink are the standout players in the Musk empire. He goes on to suggest that Elon Musk should consider appointing a CEO for Tesla and focusing his efforts on SpaceX and Starlink. Does this mean a 30% bump for Tesla? Ian thinks not, noting that relying on another company to lift Tesla's value isn't a sustainable strategy.


    Troy Millings adds historical context by recalling the impact of Musk's acquisition of Twitter (now X) on Tesla. How did the capital and focus shift affect Tesla? Troy believes the same questions of time, focus, and energy will apply to SpaceX.


    Rashad Bilal then offers a power ranking of Elon Musk's companies for the next decade:


    1. Neuralink

    2. Starlink

    3. SpaceX

    4. Twitter (X)

    5. Tesla


    Why is Tesla ranked so low in Rashad's view? He argues that while Tesla was once synonymous with electric cars, the competition has caught up. What makes Tesla special in a market now flooded with electric vehicles from various manufacturers?


    Troy raises an important point about the role Tesla has played as a funding arm for Musk's other ventures. Can Elon continue to fund his ambitious projects without liquidating Tesla shares?

  • Study Hall: Mastering the Art of Fundraising

    In this insightful clip of EYL, hosts Troy Millings and Rashad Bilal sit down with successful entrepreneur and mentor Ryan Breslow to discuss the intricacies of fundraising for startups. Ryan shares invaluable lessons and strategies that have helped him navigate the challenging world of venture capital and investment without falling into common pitfalls.


    Ryan dives deep into his personal journey, recounting initially unsuccessful attempts at raising capital and the crucial advice he received from mentors like Michael Carter of Playco. One of the key takeaways from this conversation is the importance of building relationships rather than simply requesting funds outright. Ryan explains why stating you're fundraising can put unnecessary pressure on both the entrepreneur and potential investors. Instead, creating a network of advocates who are genuinely excited about you and your project is more beneficial in the long run.

This approach ensures that you not only gain valuable insights from seasoned professionals but also organically attract investors who believe in your vision and character.


    Troy and Rashad probe further, asking Ryan about the strategic targeting of potential mentors and investors, and how to avoid getting a 'no.' Ryan emphasizes the contagion effect of rejection in the investment community and advises playing the long game by impressing potential supporters gradually rather than rushing to secure funds.


    Throughout the episode, Ryan reflects on how critical it is to foster genuine connections within a network that can later be leveraged for intros and investments. His advice also covers the importance of not showing desperation to potential investors, as they are adept at detecting it to secure the best deals for themselves.


    For anyone looking to raise funds for their startup, this episode is a goldmine of practical wisdom and strategic advice. Whether you're in the early stages of your entrepreneurial journey or looking to refine your approach to fundraising, Ryan Breslow's experience and insights will equip you with the tools to succeed.
