And you have to be pretty careful in eyes wide open and just really know how early this ecosystem is. You mentioned the one of them into regulation that we just not average Gogel Michaud from electric absol- in England. Actually, the concern is about imposing regulations so to speak in the system barashi that ho scale governments that may be having the Phares means and objectives fully embrace it.

And so we're in a process of both creating definitions and then understanding how that relates to the regulatory landscape. There may be what he's talking about which is kind of mixed motives elsewhere.

The biggest challenge in it's hard to move on from working with people you deeply respect and love.

These cycles are going very, very fast. We want more personalized stories and brands and products and experiences than ever before and as businesses they have to marry that desire for personalization and really slicing up this market with the ability to scale because consumers don't just want products that others use them love. They want products that were really meant for them, and that's a new challenge for this industry. But I think with that in challenge, there's a ton, a ton of ton of opportunity in it, and we're gonna.
