What does it take to bring a world-changing idea to life? My guest today co-founded a company we all know, that fundamentally changed the way that we experience media. Marc Randolph is a veteran entrepreneur and investor who's best known for co-founding and serving as CEO of Netflix. I'm sure you've heard of Netflix. How do you take an idea to rent movies over the internet and turn it into a company with some 150 million subscribers? Well, it takes grit, it takes gut instincts, it takes failure and determination. Marc's book, That Will Never Work, is out now. It's about taking a leap in business and in life to bring your ideas to market and change the world. Marc and I talk about the beginnings of Netflix, borrowing money from his mother and what happened in that meeting with Blockbuster all those years ago when they actually pitched Blockbuster to buy Netflix.

Empathy, experience, and expertise; just a few of the reasons why our guest today is one of the leading personal finance authorities. Welcome to So Money, everybody. I'm your host, Farnoosh Torabi. Diane Harris was the first woman ever to be appointed editor-in-chief of Money Magazine.

After 22 years at Money, she is now one of the top editors at Newsweek. Her childhood made a significant impact on her desire to help others with their finances. We begin our conversation talking about a recent cover story for Newsweek that Diane wrote, the topic, the biggest myths about student loans. I was shocked. So much to discuss. 
Ever have an underwhelming experience ordering flowers online? I’ve had many and our guest today became committed to fixing that problem and has created a multimillion dollar business. Christina Stembel knew she always wanted to start a company, living in San Francisco where it seems like everyone has a successful startup. She was constantly brainstorming ways to disrupt old industries. Eventually, she found herself with a million-dollar idea. Flower delivery. It was a rough start, unable to raise any money, Christina bootstrapped her company, starting with $49,000 in savings. Thanks to her drive and determination, she was able to weather the trying times, and there were many, to grow Farmgirl Flowers into a 23-million-dollar business. That’s how much they made last year in revenue; $23 million from flowers and Christina has her sights set on growing this to a billion-dollar company.
