We first brought you the story of Ward's work earlier this year, and our conversation began with a discussion about a recording from Panama with a sharp political message.

I'm not a sheet reviewer but can review company. I can get it I want. I feel very guilty where people send me gifts But I will tell you I did go to Amazon and just look at the reviews every time we're talking. I I search everything I just lost the name of the founder of Spiro. I interviewed I even like check myself. Vero who did? I interviewed the founder Paul Albert area. Yeah was back in. Wow it's like ten years ago at this point scales. Paul's been a he's you. He's helped me with some things. He's in boulder he's Boulder Colorado by the way extremely tight knit tech community extreme. Like like you know in in your Sr actually never answered your question. Why techstars was interested in the bedsheets company in the first place I remember. I sat down with somebody from techstars when we were we. We JUST ONE DENVER. Start Week twenty eighteen. We revenue positive. We were very lean. I was only fulltime employees You know you're doing October November twenty eighteen. We did like close to six figures. November was like ninety k our third our second month in sales and I asked Are Sending the detectors folks in there like yeah. You don't call unusually companies. Come in that. Are you know not revenue positive not profitable that? Have you know You know don't really have a product or that aren't market yet and I was Kinda like sitting there like eating my food and I was like. Don't you think it might be good to have one of those and They meant in a better way than I'm making. It sound like they help. People go from zero to one But it was. It was really funny to hear them. Say That in those exact words and so basically I you know I was a known entity. I've been through Twenty fifteen program the MD's of techstars boulder knew me. They knew who I was. They knew how hard I worked. They knew a person I was and I think that it also comes with. You know having somebody who's a little seasons on a onstage in in with the with the genius investors in with the people in the class and you know a lot of times when things got the pressure cooker environment right ten companies thirteen weeks one room It's intense and I think that having somebody who had been through a program of four also appealing to them Because I could kinda guide people through it a little bit and droopy told. We ended up raising the most money out of anybody in our class Confederate view our body. I and I and I I love aloe is that I'll love all well You know the whole wiser veggies company in techstars of dead. That's the funniest thing in the world to me and so I think it was also kind of funny to them to be totally honest And techstars boulder has more flexibility with who had taken the program that we we went right on Demo Day. We went right after Tomas. He's a spaceship company. They make reactors to bring things from lower earth orbit geosynchronous orbit unbelievable. Smart people know in class. I went online after them and I told that the techstars boulder is talk and told them I was like do not put me on and he thought it was the funniest thing in the Goddamn world the bedsheets company on after.

'cause WHO's got time to get alone lure I love at the DC space so so so much Iraqi consumer. I'm surprised you love it. I feel like people love it. I sarcastically I ride. So it's a it's a cesspool of a I wouldn't call it says well. Why do you think that it's accessible it? Okay that's really that's really derogatory. No it's it's basically are selling such a perk. It's it's a lot of people that hate themselves too seriously. In what I love about sheets and goes is that clearly bedsheets. Like it's sustainable. We've saved hundreds of thousands of years without drinking water. Untold amounts of pesticides insecticides. We plant a tree for every single order. We just painted twenty thousand trees last month like it is the coolest thing in the world to me that I get to make an impact. We just donated this. You know this virus thing came around donated all of our extra inventory number rescue mission because they need more ben sheets for their beds. Matori what do you mean extra inventory aged inventory that's basically discontinued color Sitting in the to those games. But but my my point is by the ANC space is like people you know it's like I don't WanNa take my anybody's in specific but it's like we're changing. You know personal hygiene. It's like no you sell toothbrush online. And it's like we're changing the way people travel. It's like no you sell some cases like it's not like it's not it's it's just it's a little too high fluid it's I. I know so many entrepreneurs techstars other people that are light. You're smarter than I am. And that are building things that are world changing and just absolutely. They don't talk about their work in terms of changing lives as much as it's always. Dc Company that has to have the mission that is the most aspirational. Goddamn thing you've ever heard in your life. That's a bad thing not to say as an interviewer I admire that. What doing they're communicating feeling and often they believing it until someone and they're done not so metrics make sense But no it's it's It's I object to it because I think that a law twenty three year olds by sue. Good I think conflict entrepreneurs as employees so. I think that I think that a law of twenty three and twenty four year olds see job. Posting for DC company. Paid them forty thousand dollars a year on a see that's not level wage and I hate the job and they work their ass off. They've got point one percent equity in a company they have no ability to control the destiny of and they have no sand the board the Board meetings. The amounts raised the exit potential..

"Him to get a desperate Tony. I'm totally going with that. You have to tell you. There's a part of me that has wanted to do a set of interviews. That has nothing but how to raise an entrepreneur with the parents of the People. I've interviewed with the people who have interviewed talking nothing about the childhood of the Entrepreneur. Just to get a sense of what it's like. No sugar coating. No one has to be learn contract. It doesn't have to be what you had. It could be just let them do whatever they wanted. The country's turns out one day. They were entrepreneur. It could be what you said but through all that I feel like we're GONNA learn a few things we can bring back in. I just learned one thing that I could bring back. His parents. Don't expect much Yeah it was. It was a private thing it was like it was like this is what we expect of you in. So we know we're going to shell out ten bucks every quarter and then it's like his parents probably never think they're gonNA give them a single fifty dollar bill de and I like that like is it was like when I was a kid. I remember thinking like yeah I guess it is easier for me to like work hard and get straight A.'s than it is for him to whatever it is and wasn't special for him to a special me so that was Kinda cool. Yeah but Dan Parenting topics. I don't have any kids. I'm turning thirty this year in Look in the bathroom drinking. You know only so. That's that's fair enough. I wish I could drink scotch and we'll be driving from here. I'm actually got hard Khumbu from past gas so good flying embers. I'm totally opening that up. Yeah wait You then at some point. The company didn't work out where you without company with Why am I worried about per mispronouncing Laura Loria we you read so was Spanish Arts to fly again so survivors of sexual assault taking play it again. Okay with them till the end I was. I got laid off at one PM on a Monday September. Twenty six hundred seventeen Terrible days temper. Twenty fifth as my day. My Favorite Baseball player died in twenty sixteen. Jose Fernandez and it's It's the day I got laid off one day on Monday on my buddies. The next year So now September twenty actually in the year later September twenty fifth twenty eighteen. I won first place at Denver Startup Week. Was She giggles. So I guess it all Kinda all kind of come together at the end but yeah so I got laid off with my friends in We had three hours to wrap up reality partnerships as really difficult by three hundred partnerships. Surveys I three years of partnerships with we were nationwide retail Target Ruxton H. QVC I don't want to talk about too much to get into too much detail because there is a you know there's always some US stir up through the people that were involved in a NASA. I'm always more interested in the person I'm interviewing in in your personal head space in your personal life than I am in the company but formative for. It was assuming you when you when you when you spend three years. Then the other company was sole or decelerated sale on that sort of thing But when you get laid off at one PM on Monday with you know fifteen your by your really close friends and co-workers Twentieth Point Actually. I would come so close turning that corner and it was a mission that you really believed in and we'd help save lives. It helped a lot of people It's it's painful. I mean the first thing we did was By four PM. I think we're all just wasted so. That was kind of first thing you get laid off at one pm you. That's what you do and then later that night I was. I was telling my friends at this idea company and I was the Rockies game with them that night serendipitous Lee my favorite team. The marlins were in Town Giancarlo. Stanton fifty nine home runs. I thought for sure he's GonNa Sixty Day But but any case I you know. I kept telling my friends at this idea for this betting company. I kept telling him I was like no well. Listen TO COMMODITIES. Market tally fragmented largely traditionally physical retail complete brought online. Yet or some big names in the space. I'm not very impressed with the content like so on so forth and my friends were like okay man like right here like okay you let us know how how that works out so excited about it because it's not really excited about it. My friends are very encouraging Michael. My former CO WORKERS. In fact my my former team member One of my good friends. Nick he actually did my first photo. Shoot with me helped me get the company off the ground. He's Really Guy. He couldn't join full-time. Unfortunately he works Google in given up those benefits for star benefits but but yeah so basically Day just got laid off and you have a few drinks and you start telling people about a pun base that in company that you want to start people might look at you a little askance. And that's totally fine. And she's made sense. Sorry did did my my buddy my buddy Paul Shot Paul. He ended up being one a mess. I investors I love them T I told him the idea about a week later. I founded the company three weeks after getting layoffs. I was serious about this. I told my buddy Paul this. He's an investor in Paul's response to me was like the fucking talking about a good friends like that. Just come from It was a wearable tech company like it was new tack. It was pretty cool. Was You know we were in physical retail like we you know we recovered in tech crunch also and then I was just going off about bedding and and my friend Paul is like you are? You've lost your mind and I was like I'm going to do it. And he all right well then I wanted to best because he knew he knew he knew he wrote me. He wrote my first five thousand dollar checks and And so basically what happened was we are really the former. Go deeper into it. Let me tell you when we talk about my first sponsor gonNA come back in a little bit more about that. That decision making process when Scotches By the way it's actually it's really good. It's Glen Scotia Manda it's a sixteen year. It's fantastic. I go to Scotland once every three or four years with my dad. where he hails from and We play couple rounds in a couple bottles and it's a really fun. Bother something to do. We did last year in May right techstars. I got off the stage of Textile April. Twenty Fourth April twenty fifth morning was on a plane to Scotland. My Dad so there is a nice little you know but at the end of the tunnel. Yeah that that's such a good way to celebrate with your dad to great. My first sponsor is a company called top talent. You guys were team by the way. We're no we're actually based in Denver But we do have people in California in full in Florida's while Fort Lauderdale. I remember interviewing people like heat and shopping. And why do you hire from top town? He's only got a match or you tell them what you're looking for. They get you that right person. Who else can do that for you? I'm married I've seen tells ads on Youtube. Actually I'm a former recruiter so I used to be recruiter. I started my career at a hedge fund called Bridgewater Associates. I ask you about bridgewater. I made a mental out there and he told me about the principles but anyway yeah so recruiter. What did you would you know about top cow? I didn't know so this is back in two thousand thirteen. When I was a recruiter soundlink. Top towel existed but Basically the the ninety percent of a recruiters time now until. I'm doing that for top talent like him. The response was gotta have me on talk so easily ninety percent of recruiters. You'RE GONNA pay a recruiter. Twenty-five thirty percent of somebody starting salary and ninety percent of that recruiters time is going to be sent on sourcing candidates and screening them. And that's it. That's the board. The manpower comes in and in so top. Tell from what I understand is basically a automatic way to source and screen in Cassie qualified applicants without having to spend any time on that and says what he can do it much right. They've done it ahead of time. They've got their network. All you have to do is talk to the manner. Matt the matter and go into their network and find you a bunch of entrepreneurs who I've interviewed and they loved it. The one issue that people had is well top tell only remote people are remote I company. They're probably the biggest to remote company that way. Actually I shouldn't say that I don't I don't know I I've heard that in. I want to substantiate it before I even bring it up. But they've always been big on it and now I think people are finally starting to say you know maybe remote developers if they're really good make sense and so tyler is all about that their speed their cleverness there will get you people who will blow your mind and if not them all you.
