Shopify's Harley Finkelstein on the Future of Tech Talent
Play episode · 25 min

Canada’s tech sector needs more swagger. That’s according to Shopify COO Harley Finkelstein, who says part of his company’s runaway success has been the ability to sell itself—to customers and to potential employees. After hiring 200 people from 50 countries over the past two years, Shopify is looking to add thousands more in its Ottawa HQ and around the world. To meet those needs they’ve partnered with Carleton University on a new degree program, are supporting coding camps for kids in elementary and high schools, and are making Canada a destination for international talent.

How To Write A Great Investment Thesis & More w/ Morgan Housel, Collaborative Fund
This episode is brought to you by TIKR. Join the free beta today at TIKR.com/hive. They're constantly releasing new updates that make the platform better including a new Business Owner Mode that hides share count, market cap and enterprise value. I couldn't be more excited to partner with TIKR. Morgan Housel is a man that needs no introduction. He's a NY Times Bestseller, prolific writer for Collaborative Fund and great conversationalist. I'm still amazed I was able to swindle him into joining the podcast this week. As a writer, I've wanted to chat with him and pick his brain about his writing process, how he thinks about new topics and the power of reading.  Morgan and I spend an hour discussing investment philosophy, the power of writing and what makes a great investment thesis. This was arguably my favorite and most challenging podcast to plan. I struggled with the question, "What do I ask the man that's been asked every question under the sun?"  Well, here's how it turned out:  * [0:00] Who is Morgan Housel? * [1:32] Most Challenging Parts of Writing a Book. * [7:45] Investing Psychology * [14:10] Topics that Haven’t Been Written About in WW2 and in Finance. * [19:50] Becoming a Writer * [28:00] How to Write an Investment Thesis? * [30:00] Examples of Good Investment Theses: Dandelion Energy & Beyond Meat * [34:00] The Reasons Behind Complex Business Models * [39:00] How to Look for Ideas. * [45:00] Writing is a Thinking Process. * [48:00] How Has Writing Changed Your Life? * [50:00] Closing Questions: What Writer Would You Like to Write Your Biography? This episode is a testament to scratching my own itch. Asking questions because I wanted to know the answer, not because I thought it would make for a great podcast. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.  Thanks again to Morgan for coming on the show.

Today's episode is with Chase Feiger, who's a contributing writer at Forbes. He is a founder himself; he's built multiple companies, and he is also an investor of a handful of really brilliant startups as well. After he wrote a Forbes piece on me and Magic Mind last month, he asked if he could flip the tables and interview me for the podcast as a follow up to the article. At first, I was not a fan because the whole point of the podcast is for me to glean insights from other people, and then share them with you all. But there was a practical reason that it made sense to me — and that is to share more about what it has been like beneath the surface on starting another company when I told my wife three years ago, “never let me ever start anything again”... and to share what has changed in those three years. Chase is very kind, super smart, and he's a great interviewer — It's what makes him a great writer at Forbes. It was interesting to have the microscope turned on to me for the episode. I hope it's not too boring, and I hope this slight departure from typical programming is somewhat interesting for you.

My 5 Core Stock Market Investing Beliefs
This channel has passed 70k subscribers, I thank you for that. I wished to share the fundamentals of this investing channel by sharing my 5 core stock market investing beliefs: - the markets are not efficient - the efficient market hypothesis doesn't really work in the long-term and is something we can take advantage of. - long-term attitude - everybody is so focused on the short term and not on the long-term but the long-term really matters. Of course you can't forecast what will earnings be in 5 years, but you can forecast what will be the competitive advantages, the growth, the fundamentals, the risk etc. A long-term perspective tells you what will likely be the better investment in 5 years, that is all you need. - value or growth? Why not both? Growth is an essential part of value! - Research, research and research - the more stones you turn, the more ideas you can find that the market doesn't even see because it is myopic. - Hyperbolic discounting - everybody wants to double their money in two 3 years - if you want to double your money in ten years, you have an advantage and you will likely double it in 5, buy you must keep targeting doubling it in ten, not five. that is crucial.
