Episode highlights

  • Nowadays a consumer is much better informed and exposed to a wider range of options on the market in terms of price and quality factors. If entrepreneurs aren’t disruptive in their approach a consumer will simply switch to more accessible goods the market widely offers [03:28]
  • David’s unique idea is to make luxury products accessible to the customer. Not only does it double the market when you cut your price point in the half, the profit exponentially increases. [07:00]
  • When you cut the price on a high-quality product you run the risk to make the customers suspicious. Thus, attracting celebrity partners helps establish a voice to convince the customer of the quality and style of the product [08:30]
  • In this day and age, people are way more connected and it impacts the market. Therefore, the understanding of the market is not only America-centered but is global and spreads across the ocean. As an example, David has a huge presence in the Middle East, and Europe as well. [10:05]
  • In order for the idea becomes successful, there should be persistent people behind it. Sometimes the idea is prospective but the person doesn’t really look like being capable of delivering it to the market needs. [18:42]
  • If you are a big giver, there is always plenty of money for you ahead, because there are so many causes to be involved with and you need more and more money to do that. Charity goals are the social values that make your life-driven.  [30:00]
