  • Study Hall: The Future of Humanoid Robots & AI Companionship

    Hey Market Mondays Family!


    Welcome back to another clip of Market Mondays! In this insightful discussion, we dive deep into the rapidly evolving world of artificial intelligence and robotics. With AI technology advancing faster than ever, it's crucial to understand its implications on our lives, jobs, and society as a whole.


    Our special guest, 19 Keys, alongside hosts Rashad Bilal, Ian Dunlap, and Troy Millings, explore some of the most pressing questions around AI and robotics:


    - *The Future of Humanoid Robots:* 19 Keys discusses Elon Musk's ambitious plans to make humanoid robots his next trillion-dollar business. He emphasizes that while the technology is here, the real challenge is getting society accustomed to these robots. We examine the potential for humanoid robots to take over mundane, task-oriented jobs and the impact this may have on various industries and employment landscapes.


    - *Regulations and Market Leaders:* The conversation touches on how the government is likely to turn to giants like OpenAI and Microsoft for AI regulations. These regulations could potentially stifle small businesses from competing in the rapidly growing AI market. What does this mean for innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit?


    - *Human vs. Robot:* 19 Keys believes that as robots take on factory work and low-paying jobs, humans need to delve deeper into what it means to be human. How can we prepare for a future where AI and robots are ubiquitous without losing the essence of human touch and creativity?


    - *AI Companionship:* Rashad and Troy share fascinating insights from their trip to Davos, where they encountered AI companionship apps designed to combat loneliness. From home robots performing simple tasks to advanced AI companions providing friendship and support, this sector is set to explode. Could this be the next big thing in AI technology?


    - *Embracing Technology Without Fear:* Ian Dunlap emphasizes that automation and AI are inevitable. Instead of fearing these advancements, we should focus on finding ways to integrate and utilize them to enhance our lives and businesses. Drawing parallels to the iPhone's revolution in the late 2000s, Ian highlights that those who adapt will thrive in this new era.


    Join us in this thought-provoking discussion as we explore the exciting, yet challenging, future of AI and robotics.

  • The Future of Podcasting & Influencer Recession

    Welcome back to another insightful clip of Market Mondays series! In this clip, we dive deep into the current state of podcasting and the influencer market with our special guest, 19 Keys. Hosted by Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings, this discussion sheds light on crucial topics that everyone in the digital space needs to be aware of.


    Episode Breakdown


    *Introduction of 19 Keys:*

    19 Keys opens the discussion with an intriguing question about the future of podcasting and whether there's an ongoing "influencer recession." With his wealth of knowledge in personal branding and technology, he sets the stage for an engaging conversation.


    *Influencer Recession:*

    Rashad Bilal discusses the signs of the influencer recession, noting how various markets, including comics and financial literacy influencers, are witnessing a downturn. He provides examples from the financial literacy space, where many influencers who rose during the pandemic have now gone silent. Even platforms like OnlyFans are not as lucrative for some as they used to be. Rashad's insights help contextualize why this recession is happening and what it means for the future.


    *Podcasting for Everyone?*

    Can everyone succeed in the podcasting realm? Rashad and Troy think not. They highlight the complexities and the effort required to produce high-quality content. From researching topics to editing episodes and creating engaging social media snippets, there's a lot more to it than just talking into a microphone. Rashad suggests that while everyone should have an Instagram to build their personal brand, podcasting is not necessarily for everyone due to its labor-intensive nature.


    *Monetization and Value:*

    Troy further breaks down the monetization aspect. Not everyone should start a podcast just to make money; the true value lies in passion and the unique message you offer. He explains that even celebrities have backed out from podcasting, realizing it's not the cash cow they expected. If your goal is solely financial, you won't last long in this space.


    *Niche Down & Build Value:*

    19 Keys adds nuance by discussing how important it is to find your niche. He outlines how podcasting can be a powerful tool for personal branding and content funneling. With a specific focus, you can create a smaller but more engaged audience. He emphasizes the significance of authenticity and how smaller, focused audiences can provide greater returns for advertisers. Using his own experiences with Cordyceps and other health products, 19 Keys illustrates how niche podcasting can serve as a content funnel to various aspects of your business.


    *Invest Fest 2023:*

    The speakers then pivot to discuss the upcoming Invest Fest, emphasizing its uniqueness and its essential role in fostering a culture focused on future growth and wealth-building. They call on attendees to show up at their 100%, network creatively, and treat the event as a monumental opportunity for personal and professional growth.


    Key Takeaways:


    - *Influencer Market Downturn:* The influencer recession is real but temporary. Quality and consistency will keep you afloat.

    - *Effort in Podcasting:* Podcasting is labor-intensive and not for everyone. Passion and a unique message are critical.

    - *Monetization:* Diversify your income streams; don’t rely solely on podcasting for revenue.

    - *Niche Focus:* Finding your niche will help you build a dedicated audience and increase value.

    - *Invest Fest 2023:* Prepare to network, learn, and grow at this year's Invest Fest.


    Join us for this thought-provoking episode as we uncover what it takes to thrive in today's digital landscape. Your future self will thank you for it.

  • Cliff Notes: Revolutionizing Business with AI: What Van Jones is Bringing to Invest Fest

    Welcome to another exciting episode of Market Mondays! In today's video, our hosts, Rashad Bilal, Troy Millings, and Ian Dunlap, have a fascinating conversation with the incredible Van Jones. Van shares his ambitious plans for InvestFest and his nonprofit organization - Dream Machine Innovation Lab - that aims to empower the Black community through artificial intelligence (AI).


    Van Jones passionately emphasizes the transformative potential of AI, encouraging everyone, especially underrepresented communities, to embrace this technology as a "jetpack" for their businesses rather than fearing it as a "hand grenade." He draws parallels between today's AI revolution and the cultural revolution led by hip hop, urging the community to harness this new technology creatively and disruptively.


    Van discusses his innovative program, the Dream Machine AI Academy, which he launched with Will.i.am under the campaign "Make Wakanda Real." This program aims to make advanced AI tools accessible and understandable for everyone, irrespective of age or experience. Van highlights how AI can democratize opportunities across various fields, from making films and business plans to creating music and generating discretionary income.


    During the weekend of Juneteenth, the Dream Machine AI Academy held its first-ever session in Atlanta, attracting around 500 participants across a wide age range. Supported by giants like Microsoft and Amazon, the academy provided a crash course on AI tools, leaving attendees hopeful and excited about the future.


    Troy Millings queries about the feedback and reception from the initial class, to which Van responds positively, noting the participants' newfound optimism amid a challenging political and economic landscape.


    Ian Dunlap brings up the high costs associated with large language models and inquires about niche models that might benefit the community. Van underscores the importance of just starting with the available tools, emphasizing how AI can significantly streamline tasks, enhance productivity, and save costs, thereby preventing businesses from falling behind.


    He also touches on the considerable, yet untapped, power the Black community holds in various spheres – political, cultural, and spiritual. Van advocates for leveraging these aspects collectively to demand access to computing resources from tech giants, ensuring that African American institutions and businesses can stay competitive in the AI-driven future.


    Van’s enthusiasm is palpable as he anticipates bringing this revolutionary program to InvestFest, an event dedicated to fostering financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and innovation within the Black community.

  • Nike's Future in Jeopardy?

    In this episode of Market Mondays, hosts Troy Millings, Rashad Bilal, and Ian Dunlap dive deep into Nike's recent struggles and future prospects. Following the news that Nike's stock fell after projecting a larger-than-expected sales decline for 2025, the hosts share their sharp insights on what this means for investors and sneaker enthusiasts alike.


    Ian Dunlap kicks off the discussion, expressing his skepticism about investing in Nike at this time. He emphasizes the need for Nike to stop re-releasing the same Jordans and Dunks, noting that consumers are growing tired of the lack of innovation. Ian also highlights how competitors like Crocs and Lululemon are gaining ground and suggests that Nike's failure to retain top creatives such as Kanye, Don C, and Kyrie could be detrimental. He argues that unless Nike can secure creative powerhouses and innovate substantially, it will struggle to maintain its competitive edge.


    Troy Millings agrees, pointing out that as an avid sneakerhead, he isn't currently investing in Nike for several reasons. He underscores the lack of innovation in their product lines and remembers the golden era of the mid-nineties when Nike introduced groundbreaking technologies like Zoom and Air. But those days seem like a distant memory now as the brand fails to introduce anything revolutionary. He notes that the collaboration strategy, while initially successful, has become a crutch rather than a stepping stone for innovation.


    As they dig deeper, the hosts discuss the broader sports and athleisure market, showing that Nike's struggles are part of a larger industry trend. They mention how competitors like Adidas and Under Armour are also experiencing declines, making it evident that the sector as a whole is under pressure. The conversation gets bleaker when Troy reveals that Nike reported its worst stock day on record and is already forecasting year-over-year declines through 2025.


    Moreover, the hosts point out several social and cultural missteps by Nike, including their handling of athletes like Colin Kaepernick and Kobe Bryant. The discussion touches on how Nike's current roster of athletes like Zion Williamson and Jason Tatum hasn't managed to capture the public’s imagination in the same way as the Jordans and Kobes of the past. The hosts suggest that without a new face to lead the brand or major innovation, Nike's ability to appeal to the next generation of consumers remains uncertain.


    The episode wraps up with a powerful observation by Ian Dunlap regarding the corporate culture at Nike. He questions whether the current executive leadership genuinely understands or uses the products they are trying to sell to the culture, making a compelling argument that this disconnect is part of the brand's current woes.


    Market Mondays MM Medium #6 isn't just about Nike's recent market performance—it's a comprehensive analysis of the brand's position in the market, its prospects for recovery, and where it stands in the eyes of both consumers and investors. Tune in to hear the detailed insights and recommendations from experts who know this industry inside and out.

  • Celebrity Influence and Black-Owned Luxury Brands

    Welcome back to another exciting episode of EYL! In this episode, your hosts Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings sit down with the inspiring Donae Burston, the brilliant mind behind one of the fastest-growing rosé brands. Ever wondered about the complicated dynamics of celebrity-owned brands in the spirits industry? Or the challenges and triumphs of running a black-owned business in a traditionally white-dominated sector? This episode offers a deep dive into these topics and much more.


    Starting off with a thought-provoking discussion, Rashad questions whether celebrity brands hold less credibility in the spirit world. Donae offers his candid perspective, explaining how the "cookie cutter approach" of slapping a celebrity name on a product isn’t always a guaranteed formula for success. The conversation then steers towards the racial undertones in the branding of luxury goods. Certain challenges arise when a black entrepreneur puts his name and face on a product. Donae reveals how his PR team convinced him that being visible as a black owner was crucial, despite the risk of the brand being pigeonholed.


    Donae, who aims to make his rosé brand the number one in the world, rather than just the top black-owned rosé, dives into the nitty-gritty of what it takes to build a luxury brand. He underlines the importance of making sure the product feels and looks luxurious, comparable to the best in the industry. This desire extends beyond rosé to white and red wines, showing his broader vision for brand expansion.


    Another compelling segment revolves around team-building and operational strategy. Donae shares that his team consists of only four internal members, highlighting a lean, outsourced approach to manage cash flow effectively while bringing in top-tier talent on a project basis. He describes frequent collaborations through group chats for tasks ranging from label design to Instagram captions, ensuring every detail reflects the brand's luxurious ethos.


    Ever wondered how much time an entrepreneur like Donae dedicates to his venture? He confesses that the rosé business consumes most of his day, emphasizing the importance of focus when you're at a critical juncture in your business journey. Additionally, he reveals that now his biggest competitors are the companies he once worked for, illustrating a full-circle moment in his career.


    Donae also touches upon the occasional negative feedback from former colleagues and competitors, particularly about the role Jay-Z played in his previous work. Yet, this doesn’t deter him; rather, it fuels his ambition to outshine them with a younger, cooler, and high-quality rosé.


    This episode is packed with wisdom on navigating the complexities of branding, especially when racial and celebrity elements come into play. Donae's journey is a testament to resilience and a clear vision, attributes that are essential for any budding entrepreneur.

  • Is It Time for Biden to Step Down?

    Welcome back to another insightful episode of Market Mondays! In this edition, Troy Millings, Rashad Bilal, and Ian Dunlap, delve into the recent presidential debate and its implications on both political and financial landscapes.


    The episode kicks off with a provocative question: *Who was the biggest winner in last week's presidential debate?* Our hosts don't hold back as they dissect the performances of key political figures, including President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump. They explore whether it's time for President Biden to step down, citing his perceived lackluster performance and dwindling public support.


    Ian Dunlap provides a scathing critique, suggesting that international leaders might view Biden’s potential continuation in office as an easy win. He also mentions that despite some misinformation from Trump's side, his performance was solid, leaving many to wonder if the Democratic Party needs a leadership overhaul.


    Troy Millings shares his disappointment with Biden's debate showing, pointing to his inconsistent and sometimes incoherent responses. Troy expresses grave concerns about the Democratic Party's strategy and the significant time left until the November elections, suggesting that another poor debate could further jeopardize their position.


    Rashad Bilal echoes these sentiments, highlighting the Democratic Party's failure to listen to their base sooner. He articulates the growing discontent within the Black community and other demographic groups, pointing out that Biden's declining support is a result of unmet needs and unaddressed concerns.


    Our hosts also touch on the potential alternatives for Democratic leadership, with names like Gavin Newsom and Kamala Harris coming up, but none seem to generate much confidence. The discussion transforms into a broader look at the political landscape, with warnings to the Democrats about ignoring the voices of the people for too long.


    Moreover, the conversation doesn't shy away from addressing criticisms aimed at influential media platforms, including "Market Mondays." Rashad defends the channel against accusations of spreading misinformation, emphasizing their commitment to empowering liberal voices and facilitating honest discussions.

  • Social Security and Medicare Crisis: What It Means for Your Financial Future

    Welcome back to another clip of Market Mondays. In this clip, we address a topic that has significant implications for millions of Americans— the potential insolvency of Social Security and Medicare. Bloomberg projects that Social Security will run out of money to pay full benefits by 2033 and Medicare by 2036. So, what does this mean for you, and what can we do about it? Let's dive in.


    *Key Discussion Points:*


    *1. The Reality of Social Security and Medicare:*

    Ian Dunlap kicks off the conversation by shedding light on the dwindling funds. According to him, we've already been witnessing signs of this impending crisis, such as the financial troubles in Chicago. Troy Millings adds how our generation, born in the '80s, has always been warned of this, and now we see those predictions coming to fruition.


    *2. Self-Reliance in Financial Planning:*

    Ian emphasizes the importance of taking control of your own financial future due to the uncertainly surrounding these government programs. From investing in stocks to opening brokerage accounts, he stresses on diversifying income sources and savings.


    *3. Political Dimensions:*

    Rashad Bilal gives us a deeper understanding of the political intricacies that influence Social Security and Medicare. It’s not just about the money; it's about how Congress allocates the budget. Rashad points out that while Democrats might propose raising taxes to cover these costs, Republicans might argue to reduce spending. The real solution likely lies somewhere in the middle.


    *4. Impact on Healthcare:*

    Troy highlights another alarming issue: the skyrocketing costs of healthcare in America. Without Medicare, healthcare becomes even more exorbitant, making it all the more important to have substantial savings or alternative health coverage options.


    *5. Savings and Investments:*

    Rashad talks about the importance of liquid savings and investments to weather financial storms. The goal should be to have at least six months of savings, but having a year’s worth of liquid assets can provide more security.


    *6. Broader Economic Impacts:*

    Ian brings attention to the growing disparity between the rich and poor and the possibility of a "poor person’s recession," where the most vulnerable will bear the brunt of the economic downturn. He stresses the importance of financial preparedness not just for individuals but for the larger economic system.


    *Conclusion:*

    Our discussion underscores the urgency of financial self-reliance and political awareness. If Social Security and Medicare are on a rocky path, it’s more important than ever to take control of your financial destiny. Whether through diversified investments, liquid savings, or active political participation, the time to act is now.

  • Study Hall: National Debt Reaches New Highs

    Welcome to Market Mondays, the hub where the latest economic issues meet insightful discussions. In this riveting clip, hosts Ian Dunlap, Troy Millings, and Rashad Bilal delve into some pressing matters concerning the U.S. economy that impact us all.


    *Key Topics Covered:*


    1. *U.S. National Debt:*

    - The national debt is fast approaching a staggering $35 trillion. Ian Dunlap discusses the alarming pace at which it's growing, jumping from $34 trillion in just under a year. The debt to GDP ratio is now at an unprecedented 122%, a far cry from less than two decades ago.


    2. *Citizens' Responsibility:*

    - What can citizens do about the national debt? The notion of voting is brought up, but Ian questions its effectiveness given the current political landscape.


    3. *Social Security and Medicare:*

    - Bloomberg projects that Social Security will run out of money by 2033, and Medicare by 2036. Ian and Troy offer sobering insights into what this could mean for future retirees. Rashad emphasizes the importance of being politically aware, as these programs are directly influenced by Congressional decisions.


    4. *Future of Pensions and 401Ks:*

    - Ian touches on the decline of traditional pensions and even foresees potential issues with 401Ks in the coming decade. The discussion underscores the necessity for individual financial planning and investing.


    5. *Global Economic Shifts:*

    - There’s an impending shift in global economic power with China and India predicted to surpass the U.S. in GDP by 2030 and 2040, respectively.


    6. *Military and Overseas Spending:*

    - Rashad discusses the need for the U.S. to reconsider its military and overseas spending, both of which are major contributions to the national debt.


    7. *Importance of Savings and Liquidity:*

    - The conversation shifts towards practical financial advice. Rashad advises maintaining at least six months' worth of savings and, ideally, up to a year. This liquidity is crucial for financial stability in unpredictable times.


    *Special Offers:*

  • Understanding Copyrights in Photography & Videography

    In this insightful clip of EYL, we sit down with the talented photographer and videographer Cam Kirk to delve deep into the intricacies of copyrights in the creative industry. Whether you're a budding photographer, a seasoned creator, or simply curious about how copyright laws impact artistic works, this conversation is for you!


    Cam Kirk kicks off the discussion by emphasizing the importance of understanding the term "work for hire." He sheds light on how crucial it is for photographers and videographers to recognize that signing a contract with this term means they relinquish ownership of their work. This essentially allows the employer to use the image or video in any way they see fit, from merchandise to global advertisements, without needing further permission.


    He further explains the differences between what's known as "above the line" and "below the line" usage rights. Above the line refers to higher-tier uses like billboards or products, while below the line encompasses social media platforms and other digital realms. Knowing these distinctions can significantly impact how creators approach their contracts and negotiations.


    The hosts bring up historical legal battles, such as the infamous case involving Nike and the photographer behind the iconic Jumpman logo featuring Michael Jordan. This long-standing legal tussle highlights the complexities around intellectual property and the long-term implications for both the photographers and the brands that utilize their work.


    Cam also touches upon real-life scenarios, discussing how photographers and videographers can navigate their rights when their work is used in high-grossing mediums like album covers or merchandise. He offers a unique perspective by sharing case studies, such as the successful lawsuit against Urban Outfitters for using Tupac's image without proper rights, and the contentious debates between Jay-Z and Jonathan Mannion over the commercial use of Jay-Z's photos.


    Moreover, Cam elaborates on the often-overlooked technical aspects, like setting copyright information directly within your camera's settings. This small but powerful step can help solidify an artist's claim over their work and prevent future legal disputes.


    Wrapping up, the discussion transitions to the realm of videography and content creation. Rashad Bilal inquires about the ownership of videos, especially in contexts like podcasts or music videos. Cam clarifies that, much like photography, the individual who presses the record button and handles the equipment holds the initial ownership unless explicitly transferred through a written contract.


    This episode is a must-watch for anyone in the creative industry looking to protect their work and understand the legal landscape surrounding content creation. Tune in to gain valuable insights from Cam Kirk and learn how to navigate the often murky waters of intellectual property rights.
