Built to Fail: The Inside Story of Blockbuster's Inevitable Bust w/ Alan Payne

AZ TRT S04 EP34 (197) 8-27-2023

 

 

What We Learned This Week:

·         Blockbuster started in 1985, and scaled quickly after Wayne Huizenga purchased it in 1987, 10,000 stores at its height, dominant video rental co.

·         Alan Payne instituted the Video Rental model of HEB to the Blockbuster franchises he ran – segmented movies to rent new ones for more

·         Wayne Huizenga was a stellar Founder who built 3 fortune 500 companies – Waste Mgmt, Blockbuster, and Auto Nation

·         Viacom purchased Blockbuster in 1994 for $8.4 billion, and went on to lose 75% of the value over the next decade +

·         Competition was fierce from Hollywood Video, Redbox and then in 1997 by a new DVD rental by mail company called Netflix

·         Netflix scaled into the internet company it always wanted to be with streaming in 2009

 

Guest: Alan Payne

Alan Payne spent thirty-one years in the movie rental business, the last twenty-five of those as a Blockbuster retail franchisee. He took over a small group of Blockbuster stores in 1993 and grew it into one of the largest and most successful chains in the company. He finally closed his last store in 2018, more than eight years after Blockbuster filed for bankruptcy.

Book: Built to Fail: The Inside Story of Blockbuster's Inevitable Bust

 

From the Back Cover

Blockbuster was phenomenally successful in its early years and made thousands rich beyond their wildest dreams. But it was consistently outsmarted and outmanaged by smaller companies. And the challenges began earlier than you think--long before Netflix was even an idea in the minds of founders Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph. Blockbuster became one of the most iconic brands in the history of American business, but it cracked at the first sign of a challenge. From its founding, Blockbuster was a company built to fail.

·   Arthur Smith’s describes Reach as striving for our full potential to create amazing things

·   Creation of TV Classics like American Ninja Warrior & Hell’s Kitchen

 

Arthur Smith, the chairman of A. Smith & Co. Productions, is a pioneering veteran of nonfiction television, known for creating and producing some of the longest running unscripted series in history, including Hell's Kitchen and American Ninja Warrior. Smith was honored as one of Variety's “Titans of Unscripted TV” in 2022, inducted into the Realscreen Awards Hall of Fame in 2021, awarded Broadcasting and Cable’s “Producer of the Year” in 2020, Nominated for several Emmy Awards, and received dozens of awards, including NAACP Awards, Realscreen Awards, and Critics Choice Awards. Smith embarked on his career in television as a twenty-two-year-old wunderkind, talking his way into sports production at CBC in his native Canada.

He quickly distinguished himself as a rising star at the network, where he produced three Olympic Games among countless other high-profile events. At the age of twenty-eight, Smith was named the youngest ever head of CBC Sports. His successful run at the network ended when American broadcasting icon Dick Clark lured him to Hollywood to develop and produce a wide variety of entertainment programming. Then as the head of programming and production at FOX Sports Net, Smith played an instrumental role in the launch and growth of this massive entity, before the biggest reach of his life—the creation of his eponymous production company that has thrived for more than twenty years. He lives in Los Angeles.

THE FIRST CONSTRUCTION MARKETPLACE,
AT YOUR FINGERTIPS.

 

Trevor Pan, BidBird Founder & registered Arizona architect.

 

Spending 21 years as an architect immersed in construction, manufacturing, and design, I’ve built a unique understanding of the construction industry’s constant movements and challenges.

I know that construction professionals are exhausted by the RFP game—and the collusion that can come along with it.

 

I’ve seen invasive service platforms that trap users into thinking they’re a lead generating machine, but then unethically charge them thousands with no quality results.

 

When I set off to launch BidBird, I wanted to eliminate the red tape and corruption for suppliers, manufacturers, contractors, and building owners. And when my barber approved the irresistible alliteration of the name, BidBird was born.

 

BidBird is the new way for construction professionals to achieve a constant-but-necessary thing: capture competitive bids for their materials through an efficient process.

 

At its core, our mission is simple. We connect construction industry professionals around the country through an honest platform that doesn’t cost users unreasonable fees, or their dignity.

 

With its simplicity comes big things. BidBird is an opportunity to beat out the “big guys” by just a penny, equalizing the hunt for businesses around the country.

 

We strive to combine high-value jobs + the innovation to evolve with construction professionals’ needs to transform businesses, one bid at a time.

Helping Business Owners Access Loans & Credit  

Endangering Their Personal Credit & Family Assets



When small businesses prosper, then the community also thrives. The passion I have for helping fellow entrepreneurs succeed is something I’ve fostered my entire life. As an advocate and advisor for small businesses I have seen the challenges they face firsthand.

When businesses fail, they leave an average of $80K for the business owner and their family. Knowing these daunting stats, it has become my life’s mission to help protect these incredible small businesses that are the bedrock of our economy.

Can you imagine what your small business would look like in 12 months if…
✅     You didn’t get turned down for the loan, credit card, or line of credit you needed?
✅     Your access to loans and credit didn’t impact your personal credit or put your family home at risk?
✅     You had the money you needed to expand and meet new opportunities?
