Brian Chesky, Co-Founder and CEO of Airbnb: Designing a 10-star Experience
The intriguing talk on "Designing a 10-Star Experience" by Brian Chesky, co-founder, and CEO of Airbnb, gives his views on creating great experiences. Chesky highlights the significance of knowing your consumers' requirements and aspirations, iterating and testing new ideas, adhering to your company's vision, and building products that tell captivating tales. He utilizes the metaphor of a "well of users" to describe how small groups of passionate consumers may assist you in growing your user base and creating a bigger pool of delighted customers.
Yet Chesky doesn't simply emphasize the relevance of data and consumer input; he also emphasizes the necessity of making choices based on principles, even when data is unavailable or unclear. This focus on being loyal to your beliefs and goal serves as a compelling reminder of the necessity of having a clear sense of purpose in your job.
Chesky's presentation is full of passion, excitement, and zeal. His insights on customer-centric design, storytelling, and decision-making are useful not just for companies, but also for anybody who wants to create outstanding experiences and meaningful connections with people.
Personal Projects I am working on
I'd been using Wally to manage my personal money, but the fee was becoming too expensive for my budget. So I decided to create my own financial monitoring software!
I'm presently constructing an #ETL pipeline that gets data from my different accounts by using account statements and SMS messages from my phone. I've created an #iPhone shortcut to collect transaction SMS messages for real-time updates, and I'm also making use of #ChatGPT's API to parse transaction descriptions.
All of this information is saved in #BigQuery, and I'm displaying it on #Looker. This serves as my own management information system, delivering insights that assist me to make better financial choices. As a consequence, I now consider myself to be my own personal CFO😎 !
If you're looking for technical information, I've provided a thorough architectural diagram below. Please let me know what you think and any recommendations for improvement!
The concept I love to share with you
Pareto charts may help you visualize the 80/20 rule, which claims that 80% of the consequences result from 20% of the causes. They display the frequency or expense of various occurrences or situations in decreasing order from left to right.
Echoing Kade Brewster's idea, Pareto charts help you identify the most significant issues and where to focus your efforts for maximum impact.
In finance, for example, a Pareto chart might highlight the investments that are contributing the most to your portfolio's growth. The bulk of your earnings may be attributed to a tiny fraction.
This emphasizes the significance of prioritizing the most important aspects for optimum returns above quantity.
Pareto charts may help you decide where to concentrate for the most effective while managing investments or any other element of your life.
