Talking about Startups in St Louis
Startups in st louis St Louis is a good place for startups and entrepreneurs for several reasons - the low cost of living and running a business, there are universities, it’s easy to get hold of people in St Louis. Since 2014, VC deals have gone from $2.7m up to $12m last year. Last year’s record high investment statistic is probably thanks to the low interest rate. We expect the number to be lower this year because of the rising interest rates and the companies have been laying off staff to remain profitable. Exits in St Louis haven’t been hugely impressive. From a PR standpoint, it helps to have an exit, but having well-run businesses in St Louis would be better from an investment standpoint. The unfortunate situation in St Louis is that many businesses end up leaving to other parts of the country for better opportunities. The worrying part of remote work is that employees would rather work from Austin or Silicon Valley, so startups in St Louis end up incubating more startups.   Brofessional Development Podcast is hosted by St. Louis Business Owners Bobby Drummond, Brad Loyet, Dan Greiner, and Matt Kresko!     Follow us on Instagram: www.instagram.com/brofessionaldevelopment Facebook: www.facebook.com/brofessionaldevelopment Twitter: www.twitter.com/brofessionald Listen to the Brofessional Development podcast on: Our Website: www.brofessionaldevelopment.com Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/brofessional-development-podcast/id1525013123 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/18Mm3zIWLUl3vdAj0zBYHj Our Businesses: Brad Loyet: www.bpfabshop.com www.bloyet.com Dan Greiner: www.fullcircleplacements.com Nathan Rubbelke www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/ www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/inno

Talking about the Flations! GREED/STAG/SHRINK-FLATION
Talking about the Flations Greed/stag/shrink-flation Greedflation is, in theory, where companies raise their prices in industries where inflation hasn’t been that significant. This is an opportunity for companies to raise their prices unnoticed because otherwise consumers would get confused at the different rates of inflation. The indicator for greedflation not being a real thing is healthcare prices. These prices typically go up higher than the rate of inflation. In the past year, healthcare prices have been lower than inflation. The reason it’s political is because they’re trying to pass bills that cap how much corporations can charge. Shrinkflation is when companies keep prices the same, but they’ll put less into the packages. A 10% product size shrinkage is equivalent to an 11% price increase. The best way to keep your eye on shrinkflation is to look at unit prices. With half of all grocery purchases being unplanned, there’s a lot of money being paid where it doesn’t need to be. Some ways to find shrinkflation: If you buy store brand versus name brand, they’re typically the last to reduce their content. Also, compare price per ounce instead of grabbing the first item you find. Stagflation is when we have persistent high inflation, combined with high unemployment and a stagnant demand for employment.   Follow us: Instagram:        www.instagram.com/brofessionaldevelopment Facebook:         www.facebook.com/brofessionaldevelopment Twitter:            www.twitter.com/brofessionald   Listen to the Brofessional Development Podcast: Website:                       https://brofessionaldevelopment.com Apple Podcasts:            https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/brofessional-development-podcast/id1525013123 Spotify:                         https://open.spotify.com/show/18Mm3zIWLUl3vdAj0zBYHj   Brofessional Development Podcast is hosted by St. Louis Business Owners Bobby Drummond, Brad Loyet, Dan Greiner, and Matt Kresko!

What would you do if you won the lottery?
What we would do if we won the lottery Last week, the Powerball winner got $1.4Billion. If Sal won the Powerball, he would’ve paid his parents’ mortgage off and bought himself a house. The rest of us would buy all the toys and we would get all our closest friends to quit their jobs and work for us. 70% of all lottery winners lose all the money within 5 years. The thing with money is, the more you have, the more you spend. If you’re not making money, you will run out, no matter how much you win. Sports News Some of these NFL suspensions make no sense. Deshaun Watson was suspended for 6 games, while Calvin Ridley was suspended for a year for betting on games when he wasn’t even playing. The NFL also suspended the Dolphins owner $1.5Million for offering Tom Brady partial ownership to sign him. In other sports news, the Cardinals did not win Juan Soto. We’re not too upset with this result. We’re more impressed with Otani’s talent, to be honest. He’s like the next Babe Ruth.   Follow us: Instagram:        www.instagram.com/brofessionaldevelopment Facebook:         www.facebook.com/brofessionaldevelopment Twitter:            www.twitter.com/brofessionald   Listen to the Brofessional Development Podcast: Website:                       https://brofessionaldevelopment.com Apple Podcasts:            https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/brofessional-development-podcast/id1525013123 Spotify:                         https://open.spotify.com/show/18Mm3zIWLUl3vdAj0zBYHj   Brofessional Development Podcast is hosted by St. Louis Business Owners Bobby Drummond, Brad Loyet, Dan Greiner, and Matt Kresko!

Flash Floods in St. Louis, Choco Tacos, and Saudi Arabia creates Hunger Games in Real Life!
In the 103rd episode of the Brofessional Development Podcast, Bobby and Sal will talk about some current events such as Sal’s trip to Las Vegas, what and when their next event is going to be, the St. Louis flash flood, choco tacos, and about Saudi Arabia building the next Hunger Games. Stay tuned! About Sal [0:37] Sal is flying to Las Vegas for the first time in his life for his friend’s bachelor party. He is also going to turn 29 on his birthday on Saturday. Las Vegas Trip [1:11] Sal hasn’t really hung out with most of them, so it will be the first time for him. They’re planning to play golf, and Sal says he isn’t very good with it. Bobby mentions he will be in Vegas too in under a month. Upcoming Events [4:58] Bobby has a weekend golf tournament for a charity scramble for the St. Louis Sports Commission with Matt James. They also have an event on August 17th for Drive Social Media with special guest speaker Zack Schafer talking about conflict management and other difficult conversations. Flash Flood [5:56] Bobby talks about the St. Louis flash flood and how he saw multiple warnings about it on his phone. He went on throughout his day until there was a torrential downpour halfway through his walk, and it ended up being worse and worse. Total rainfall for that day was nine inches, 25% of what St. Louis usually gets for the year. Lotteries [11:19] Sal talks about how when the prize money gets really high, he and his friends would pitch in and plan to split up the money if they win. Bobby wonders how people who won the lottery go broke eventually and compares them to professional athletes who get paid big but eventually go bankrupt. Sports [15:24] Sal and Bobby talk about sports and the organizational moves of teams. Teams who were perennial threats to almost nothing overnight. Saudi Arabia’s Plans [20:20] Saudi Arabia released plans for a 100-mile long, 200-meter wide, mirrored vertical city across the desert—a massive city in just one single line across the desert. Sal and Bobby share their thoughts about it, especially on how it will affect the surrounding ecosystem.   Follow us on Instagram: www.instagram.com/brofessionaldevelopment Facebook: www.facebook.com/brofessionaldevelopment Twitter: www.twitter.comj/brofessionald Listen to the Brofessional Development podcast on: Our Website: www.brofessionaldevelopment.com Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/brofessional-development-podcast/id1525013123 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/18Mm3zIWLUl3vdAj0zBYHj Brofessional Development Podcast is hosted by St. Louis Business Owners Bobby Drummond, Brad Loyet, Dan Greiner, and Matt Kresko
