How failure can led to massive success

"Hey, their freedom fighters, Miami's Andrew Warner and the founder Mixer g where I interview entrepreneurs about how they built their businesses. You know one of the big hesitations that we entrepreneurs get in our heads before we start something is. Going to be a lot of time a lot of work. Some of our money maybe a lot of our money and Risking all of it along with our credibility on an idea on a business that I was gonna say could fail but let's say is likely to. And it causes hesitation it keeps us from starting keeps us from building on. Well, joining me is an entrepreneur who? Entrepreneurs hate it when I say failed but I'm going to say you tell me Charles. If you're uncomfortable with me saying he created this product called T. L. Dr Dot co he his goal was to summarize the interesting content on the Internet. I failed invested a lot of time into it. Put a lot of themselves into it. It's still. Closed. Upset with me saying the word failed you don't seem to be. because. I like to say that the the failure. To stock the more winning business. That's the point I was getting exactly what Charles just said that he because of this business because is bad experience ended up learning how to create businesses learning, what to create went to create it how to figure out what customers are willing to pay for how to get customers. And it's. This was not a bad experience you said. It. was a very good experience is not because you fail that it's a bad experience. You're. Always to to see the the good ways of things and the see that's a a an experience is experience and you have to take the most. It's an thing is what we did we geology are is that we look back at what we did and What we did great. What did he do? Wrong. And how we could make it. The next run. And you did the new company that Charles, whose voice you just heard that's Charles Micheletti he is the founder of to Ken. What they do is they help companies take the data that we're all building up and make it easier to express to other people find the meaning of the data, make it actionable. By making the data more visual in- it's especially helpful for CEOS and product Product managers who are building his software into their own platforms, but many other companies in addition to software creators, and by the Charles talk about how well he's doing with his business and we could talk about it. Thanks to to phenomenal sponsors the I. If you're trying to get your ideas off the ground, you gotta check out host dater. And I'll convince you later to go to hostgator dot com slash mixer to do it and the second if you're at the stage where you're kicking around idea for business for a product, I want you to check out my friends over at launch pier where they will build out that first version for you and their launch pure dot com slash mixer g, but I charles the hardest in most awkward and maybe the one that you're most proud of is What's your revenue? So. Our revenue approaching like millions of recurring revenue. Doors ten yet even more than we had an arnold since last time we talked. Yeah, you'd. For I would say approaching. Growing fast and. WHERE WE WILL BE A. Big inning for twenty twenty one in the few just of Schumann's and up until recently, you were bootstrapped about a year ago you took on how much funding? We took twelve million funding. To boost? The growth and to Elvis. A. Meanwhile. Though you hit what four million dollars in revenue by then by the time that you took on more than that, we we it's a six million dollars. Why'd you take on funding? Because it was the right thing to do it. Because you wanted to take a little bit of your money off the table. No it was the right time because we want to skate and we want you to. Higher more senior people. Because you you know that the right time when you see. Will hit some. Glass ceiling. When and if you don't have. Money to invest you you will lose opportunity to. take the market and to. Go Faster. So we knew what were you going to do with the money? What was the vision for it? So we the plan which is still the gun to to invest money in a few different areas of the company from is the product because issue onto leader of the growth. Strategy you need a Marie strong and differentiated products. So I would say that nearly a third of the offending. Will be used always be he's being used to fund the new version of the product, and the second thing is to a more senior people in the leadership's sue until then when we would strap only said for funders, full people driving like nearly. People Company and be wants to. The the company Kale, and also provide the people that worked at you can with a great leadership to ebb them grow in their. Career and went into Higher Sanyo people to do so and and. So we want you to envision says pitching, which is used to. Expand. The business in Unification's

"I think I can get to Napa in two hours. That means before she goes to her next event. She is scheduled at six o'clock to have FaceTime with us for Valentine's Day bef- like in between her two big events. And someone say Libya, let's face time right now. And we'll FaceTime from the location where she is. No the place because she and I went there on a good getaway once and so were surprised her and let her go do her thing. And then we'll hide out in her hotel room in the next. I'll take the kids out to take them to Napa to do stuff and to make this work every time I thought this was going to be easy. Something weird would happen. Like school's out for the kids. One of my my son's kid's mom said. Can I drop my son off with you? I wasn't prepared for takeoff. And I can you take the afternoon, then let me goes. Yeah. Sure. It's going to be easy. It's easy. This is four year olds or simple to take care of. Then I had to come up with a story for a Levy about that. And her brother suddenly surprises her and stays in Napa in this place. So I call them up. And I I think I need I need to place, and I get him another hotel rooms now paying to move them to another like nice hotel room. So he gets away for the day. And who knows what? But we're gonna pull that off. And then sorry, David. I'm going to end this with this this next exciting thing. I'm going to run a marathon from Texas. Do you know this? Are you the last person on earth who just looking at? Yeah. Go now endlessly, I want everybody to know this because I'm so psyched about it. I'm going to go to Texas. I'm going to run twenty six point two miles the equivalent of a real marathon. But I'm gonna do it on my own from Texas into Mexico. Once I get to Mexico, I got to airline to flights one that I hope to catch. The other one is a backup all book. The so I'm gonna get there. I'm going to check out this city, and then I'm gonna get on an airplane, go to Mexico City. And then I'm going to interview entrepreneurs in Mexico. Those guys would not come to me and do an interview here do it remotely. I'm going to go to them. And now I've got to entrepreneurs which believe me it was harder than getting hundred entrepreneurs on mixer from the US to entrepreneurs in Mexico City said yes, shoot interviews with them fly back, and then when do this and other continents two that's twenty nineteen. That's awesome. Let me know when you come to South America. I am going there next. I've got a partner for Chile who's helping me set up interviews over there. And so I was going to do a couple of countries I'm going to go there. But you're not there where are you medigene Columbia? So that's why I wanted to go. I was planning. He said to me Andrew clumpy has got. We've got really good. I think it was in Bogota. We've got sorry. We're happy is is a big big one with knows a couple of others who are still doing. Well, but I never heard of he said I could hook you up with them. And I thought going to go there. I'm going to go to Chile, and then I said, wait a minute. I want to do something, right? Instead of smashing too many things in and I don't get to experience it. But frankly, Columbia for me is someone who's never been. There is more interesting. Brazil is more interesting. Even Panama where I've got a layoff. Layovers more interesting than chilly because I've been too chilly, but entrepreneurship and Chile's really interesting they're paying they paid entrepreneurs to come there. They're really working on ecosystem. I wanted to how well it does. And I want to run a marathon there. Great. We'll we'll keep bookie following you.

"So I I sold my previous company, and I had a bunch of time off to do nothing to literally just walk on the beach. In Venice beach. Boardwalk was like my feet were in the sand. And fortunately, it was just like just casual walk on the beach. I remember watching this dude after being in such a high pressure virement myself watching this guy who was selling trinkets on Venice beach boardwalk, and he was asleep just the happiest most easygoing sleep, you could imagine. And I realized that I still was not at a place where if I had to sell I could comfortably do anything. If I was standing behind that table. I would be hawking the hell out of everything that was there. And I couldn't understand how he could get to that comfortable spot. And I knew I don't wanna be there. But I do need to be a little bit more chill that if I'm still getting excited that he's so relaxed, but also as barechested towards that. I think there's something for me to learn how to this experience. So I was spending a lot of time on the beach having those kinds of revelations. And then I started to slowly drift back into entrepreneurship, and I did things like post on Craigslist. If anyone needs help, let's get together at this place. We'll talk at the time I really liked king's head bar. And so that's why would meet people, but I wasn't super helpful. And it was like a lot to do to go there. So then I started slowly saying I'll do calls on the phone with people and help them out. And then I would pay to give people coaching from other people if they needed it, and I could see his inching towards something. Then I went and backpack through Europe. And when I came back, I said, okay, I'm ready to do something. And that thing became events with the idea that people would meet each other there'd be events all over the world. And then that would turn into this big event movement thing it wasn't it. Ended up being podcast starts by the name mixer g came from. Yeah. Mixers with with energy. Yeah. Man. So then how did you end up doing an interview? I had some piece of garbage Mike around the house. I didn't realize it. Mike's would different. I just thought if you have a Mike you can plug it in I plugged it in and I use Skype, and I just recorded the person, and that was it, and it was a home. If you listen to the very first interview and the first batch you can hear him. The whole time. It was because the Mike was just one of those old fashioned Mike's ones, you know, the that auxiliary cable type of thing that the headphones used to be until apple killed the headphone, Jack the Mike had one of those things. And I realized that's a problem and then eventually bought a USB Mike, and then just a little at a time..

"So since I'm going to aid your duty. I've got my pager duty socks on. They've got some kind of company retreat. They're always doing something. She's doing something your first date was on Valentine's Day. Yeah. Did you think? That's kind of weird. Up until that year, Valentine's Day meant a lot to me, usually Valentine's Day meant. You're a loser. And one day you're gonna make it. And then you'll be able to date a lot of women or you'll find someone you love, but it's going to work out. Great, but everyone else's in love right now and everyone else's dating and gear not. And then I started to date and actually enjoy Valentine's Day more than the people who the women I was dating. And then it became a thing that I needed to have to do something every Valentine's Day, even if I wasn't with anyone and the year that living I met was the first year. I was just okay with it. I'm not a loser from not with someone. I'm not like in a perfect situation. And okay with myself, if I am with someone it's just if it works it works, if it doesn't it doesn't, and I'm okay, not being with someone and not defining myself by that. And then we had this really good conversation. And I kind of had my aunt her for a while. And so I asked her out, and it felt just as comfortable saying, do you wanna go out tomorrow as it would have been to not do anything on Valentine's Day and retro retrospectively has she said anything about. Her thoughts on the fact that your first date was on Valentine's Day. She thought that it was a very confident thing to do to to be able to do it and frankly teeth and be able to pull it off. We're living in Los Angeles to pull off a really good night for Valentine's Day with less than twenty four hours. Notice was I'm glad that it worked out that way. Well, was it one of those? Yeah, I think a lot of restaurants have some sort of Valentine's Day like hard to get around. I lived in New York. I would pay a couple of hundred bucks per person to go out for dinner. And then it would be this jammed inexperience. It stocked. So we we ended up going to the crescent hotel, which was a hidden gem back then now it's just hidden in it should be. But it was hidden beautiful place in Beverly Hills felt old school. Beverly Hills really elegant really simple. And there was nobody there which is probably why it failed and turn into something else. And we will sit outside in the warmth of February in LA and talk and have a drink. And then go in. Side. And then we happened to one have dinner, and there was a restaurant that was open. Actually, they were closing. But set your sit down will get you what you wanna eat in. It was just the two of us in that restaurant. It was good. I eight. Our first year apart and tomorrow, she's still going to be at the conference. And so the planet always been that I was going to go take the kids and do something do something fun with them. And I thought I'd just take them out see her, and that'll be our fun thing going to whatever in Napa will do something that fits within the criteria that you had set out. Yeah. Doing something with the care, actually. Yeah. Fries with them while surprise mom tonight. And then she's not gonna want to hang out with us tomorrow because he's going to be at the conference, and I'll find stuff for us to do his wine tasting who know those guys are they're going to drink too much. You know, what I know we're going to get into business. But I've got to tell you that when my kid was two years old..

"Hey, there freedom fighters. My name is Andrew Warner on. You know, yada, yada, yada, founder of interview site misery, hey, I get really personal in my interviews, and the guests you're about to me is is a kind of guy who gets super personal with people in private, and I had him onto an interview a few months ago. We were supposed to talk about a company that he started the iron yard. And instead we ended up talking about alcoholism suicide super, super personal stuff, and we never got this phenomenal company that he founded and sold. And so because I was more interesting, but you think aside is more interesting? Oh, yeah. Is is life and death company too. And at the same time I remember saying to, I would give up my marriage for a good first successful company. I would even give up my life for it. Let's be honest. And then I walked away being embarrassed by what I said. I said, oh, I love my wife Libyan. I are super tight, and then I go and I do this jerky thing. Why did I say I realize there's annulment or truth in it and as much as I love her, I wanna leave a legacy that comes from from the company. Anyway. I got super honest in there. You got incredibly open it and then we booked this interview to do the follow up to talk about the iron yard, and you didn't show up, and then we booked it again and you didn't show up and then you booked it again, and then you didn't show up. And my people on my team were saying to me, Andrew is what happens when you push people to talk to personal, not everyone wants to do this in public think my radar. I think I'm good at guests getting how people feel and I got how Johnston fell. He was okay with that. We're gonna ask him whether he was or not. What was going on when he didn't show up, but. I'll say this guy's Johnston is one of my favorite favorite entrepreneurs because he is so open about what life is like your that. He's not giving you the story. If you have any doubt about police, go back and listen to the previous interview, which he now thinks is maybe better than this interview, and we didn't even do this interview gives us a chance on knows, but that's what we talked about. The really open -ness of what it's like to be an entrepreneur and what it's like frankly, to be John, not just any entrepreneur, but someone with with his chemistry with his biology and what was going on in his life. In this interview dough Johnston is back, we're gonna talk about his company, the one that feels like ancient history to him, but I'm fascinated by it's called the iron yard. And the reason fascinated by it is because there was a period there where I was noticing that lots of entrepreneurs throughout the not lots. They're a handful them throughout the country who are creating these coding schools in person boot camps, really putting developers through the paces and then helping them get jobs, and they were producing lots of revenue and profits, and in. John's case with the iron yard actually selling out here to talk about how he did and what happened there to the whole industry. And we're going to learn about that business and we are maybe even gonna find out a little bit about his latest company which is called yene dot IO. It's a crypto currency, social platform. John is a prolific entrepreneur, and this is latest company. I think this one might be the biggest of them all and we can do it. Thanks to two on the first is giving my my office right here. It's called Regis. I got this great story in back to stories that will show you why frigging love Regis really in dollars and cents. And the second one is hosting my website. It's called hostgator, but I'll tell you about the sponsors later..

"And then he interviewed a someone who is on the polar opposite of him. And I thought because he's interviewing someone who's considered a libertarian or not not a libertarian, but someone who's like anti-god this guy is pro God because he interviewed someone who has an atheist. I felt like, oh, this guy sitting down with him. He's not too crazy conservative, what fine. I could listen to him more and it was. So there's a benefit. So having said that if you're starting out doing interviews, whether it's for podcast or blogging, how do you get anyone to pay attention? Let's problem. I had in the beginning and what I did was I would go to bigger sites and say to them. If I get this person to do an interview with me and pull out the seven points of the seven steps to do whatever will you let me publish it on your site? And they say, well, we don't know you, but yes, if you could get whoever it is that I was after, they'd say, yeah, absolutely. We'll do it. And so I think that's a really beneficial way of doing things to say to a bigger property. I'm going to do an interview with this with this guest for you, and then also put the interview on your side. You're not interviewing the owner of that blogger publication. You're, you're interviewing somebody else. And capitalizing on that? Yeah, it'd be more concrete I couldn't get. I didn't think I could get Seth Godin. So I went to mash -able and I said, hey, if I get Seth Godin to talk about all the different ways you can do well, even though the economy's bad would you would you be okay with that? And they said, Seth Godin, he can talk about anything. Absolutely go for it, and I went to Seth Godin, and I said, Tim, Seth, can I interview you about the seven ways that people can do well in a bad economy, a publish, those that answer on mash -able and since we're recording, it also publish the recording in my podcast and he said, yeah, absolutely. And so we recorded it and it gave me some guidance for what to talk about and what to pull out. And then it gave me some guidance for how to turn that into a blog post for Mashal. And then it gave me a recording that I was able to put on on my site genius. I love that. I think we all know we need to and we're asking for something provide value in some way. And I think a lot of beginners. Don't feel like they have value to give, but I love that marrying of this two pieces together to create. Four, both sides actually become a connector, which is fantastic. What are some of the most memorable interviews that you've had and why? You know what, I'll tell you about one that's going to be published soon. It's with a guy named Barry stamos and the reason that that one means so much to me is because I was getting back into what I cared about. And so I interviewed him about how he started this company where he had no money. But he said, what I'm gonna do is people don't know how to write good Email. They don't know how to write persuasive copy. Especially bigger companies have big budgets, but they don't know how to do Email. Well, I'm going to write a few blog posts about how to do Email well, and then I'm going to offer my services to any big company to create their content. And then he ended up creating content for some of the biggest companies out there and selling it for. I don't know how many millions, but I remember in the interview is specifically said, did you personally get millions of dollars from the sale of this business? And he said, yes, I did. And there was also an earn out. And the reason that that matters to me is not so much that part, but later what he did was he create. A company called one heart where it's all about how entrepreneurship tap into their motion and tap into their happiness. And the truth is I really been wrestling with this for for most of my life..

"Pizza is a incredible success story of make your own pizza. Let me see. What is it. You know what? I won't have the exact numbers, but he's doing tens of millions of dollars with these businesses with with manti pizza. The fact that he's a celebrity though, means that my pre interview or ask questions that we could have researched not in the US nobody would know him in the US, but go into the UK our papers. So what I said to we need to do was. Let's find someone to do research for the pre interviewer. So this never happens again. I never want to waste the next guy's time like Scott by asking questions and we're online. And so now we take a list of questions. We give them too fancy hands and for six bucks per they will fill in our basic questions. So the pre interviewer has the basics and doesn't have to go and ask the same thing over again. So that's the way that I work now that got so good that I was full of research full of information. And the problem was nobody cares about research and that's not where you get the heart of the interview. That's not why you care about like, why don't you like my interviews? You didn't like my interviews because I researched the name of your high school band. Right? You like my interview because I genuinely cared about what I was into. And so I've been reminding myself of that and trying to tap into that in every interview lately. Do you follow the same motive with who you have on the show? Just who is most interesting at the time to you who you're most curious about, or do you have another way to preselect who's going to be on your show? My problem is I love everyone and I would care about everyone. You came to one of the dinners that I did before. I think it was converted twenty sixteen the conference. You might have looked around the table and seeing great people, but they were eighteen of them or something because I couldn't say no to people. And so finally, there's someone who I work with Megan. Megan is in charge of helping me organize dinners for events. And when I stayed her, Megan, tell me no allot. I know it's going to be great people. I'm gonna want everybody out. Please tell me knows at the table doesn't get so crowded that we don't get to know each other. And so one of the things that she's doing is telling me, no, same thing with guests. I have to say to the to the inner to my people. Please tell me, no, because once you get like this, the heart of Dale Carnegie of being curious about other people, and then you say, what do I really care about? How do you not care about everyone is true Megan's great. By the way we've been talking to schedule this innovation. She's fantastic. Well, that's right. Yeah. When it comes to. Getting people on your show. Your show is popular enough now where you can just say, hey, I'd love to have you on the show. Most people are going to say, yes, if they're smart and the schedules line, obviously. But for those who are just starting out brand new podcasters, they worry about people even giving them the light of day for their brand new show that has very little audience size. What tips might you recommend for those who are just starting out in the interviewing scene and in terms of who to select and how to get a person to say yes, to come on the show. First of all, I would say that you absolutely should be doing interviews. I think that there's a sense that I shouldn't be doing interviews, everyone's doing interviews. Tell you what. The the benefits of doing interviews are first of all you get to learn from someone else while you're while you're doing the work second, you don't have to be the expert. Third, you coach ideas out of people that they couldn't come up with on their own because you're genuinely curious about them. And finally, there's the the rubbing off actor. I was listening to a conservative talk show host, do a podcast, and he's a firebrand firebrand firebrand..

"Excuse me, greeting card today. People are just angry and carsoup other. And one of the people who who I don't know how many millions and sales she did for us. But Rosalind Resnick would represent our Email list and sell it to companies like IBM. And I always wanted to know how she got what she was, and I got a little bit of a sense of it, but it's kind of weird in conversation at dinner to say, so how'd you get so rich? But in the interview, I got to ask Roslyn about how she started. And I got to ask her about how she built up. And now she figured out her business model. And at the end of it, I remember a and I were still dating and she happened to be in my house at the time. And I said, Olivia, I know I called her because I was so excited. I said, Libya, I know what I want to do with the rest of my life. I just loved it. I got to understand all this about a woman who I known for years. That's so how do you have the courage to ask certain questions that many other people wouldn't dare ask? I think this is why many people come to you when they want to listen to other entrepreneurs in their stories because you feel I don't know if you're comfortable, but it seems like you're comfortable asking those kinds of questions where even with me, I worry about a response. A person might have if I were to kind of poke a little bit further than, you know, I should. I tell the guests my reason and I get by ahead of time. So throughout the interviews, you can see that. I say, I want to understand how you failed because sometimes I feel like a failure and I can't snap out of it. I want to understand how how big this business got, because I want to know how big a business like that can get. I tell them the reason and I give the answer. We all know about the robber tail Dini book influence where he talks about how someone cut in line in the copier by saying, I need to cut in line because whatever. And if you say the reason people are more likely to give it to. The thing that I discovered was I read a baby books after we had our first child about four years ago and in some of them, they say, even if the kid is a year, even if they're a year and a half, just tell them the reason I say this to my wife, my wife is very into like to chill, read a book until actually implemented. So she went into our kids room one time when. He was sleeping shepherd was a kid with scream alive if he didn't get his way. And she went and she said, now shepherd, I need you to sleep because you need to have your energy. So tomorrow morning, you'll have energy to play with your friend Callan. So go to sleep now and then mommy's gonna come and help you in the morning..

"But what I'm getting at is you have this way of uncovering in these interviews, some of the most important information that we can all learn from. How did you become such a great interviewer, like, where does it come from his that a skill that we can all learn, or is that unique to you? I hired somebody to watch my interviews. I'll tell you like, I didn't know that where this came from and I actually for a long time was beating myself up for the reason that this worked. I didn't. I thought it was a flaw mine. I hired someone to lis- to go through the transcripts of each week's interview and give me feedback point by point, and I created this Google doc of all the things that I learned from him at one point. I, I'm just so tired of it. I'm just so tired. He goes, what are you? Tired of, I, I'm so tired of being vulnerable guy every other interviewers, just like the build up your reputation by being someone bigger and look at this in the transcript. I talk about like how I can't figure it out. I don't have the answer. Nobody aspires to put someone like that on their wall the way that I put Sumner Redstone on my wall, I'm tired of being that guy and look in comparison. The person who I'm interviewing gets to be the hero, and I'm the person who so flawed. Why do I have to be such a flawed wimp all the time in these interviews? And he said, gimme him in. It said, I just like poured my heart out. You need a minute. Can you just say something's give me a minute? They just kept going through the transcript. I was one of the things that I disliked about him was he didn't do his homework. He didn't go and read the transcript ahead of time, but at least he was a fast reader who can go through every transcript superfast on the call, and he said, scroll down a little bit. So you know, in Google docs, if you click on someone's face, you can go to where their mouse is. So I did that and he goes, you see, this says you up there in the transcript. You real vulnerability and the guest responded by being strong. But notice how later on the guest went and got Boehner -able the guest went in and started to talk about themselves in started just say, things that they wouldn't say. Otherwise. He said, if you're expecting that because you're vulnerable immediately, someone's going to tell you the truth of who they are, that they don't wanna share with anyone. You're wrong. It's not going to happen that way. But if you give it time, you're creating the atmosphere where people can really be themselves and get on Rable. And so. The answer is that that I just really want to get to know the entrepreneur really wanna get to know beyond the BS. I really do admire the people who I have on. And I think that by being Boehner -able I get to do that. And the start of the podcast was this post that I did, and anyone can see mix or dot com slash, I dash failed. Like failed where I said, I, I poured money into this invitation site and it didn't work, and I admit failure and I've got to close it down. So I can just start fresh and I'm just going to interview people to understand how to never fail like this again. And that was the mission to see what they're really doing. Interview you remember the very first interview was a guy named Michael arou- who happened to come to an event that I did, and he was a chiropractor who is just killing it in SEO and the SEO world people knew about him back when people didn't even care that that search engine optimization SEO was thing. And I said, if everyone knew who was coming to my events because I was organizing events using my invitation software, they wanna come to my, they'd want organize events. They wanna get to know people. So I interviewed him. I liked it and then I just kept interviewing other people. The one that turned me though was. After this collection of software companies, I created an online invitation and Email marketing company. We got to over twenty million Email addresses. We were doing about four hundred thousand online invitations a day..

"Andrew approaches is job in his work and how he approaches these conversations that he has with people to get the golden information from them for everybody's benefit, and we'll talk about the business that you've created as well. But I love to start in the beginning like before mixer g before you started interviewing other entrepreneurs, what were you doing? And. Were you at that time. I'm gonna go back a little bit further because I'll be honest with you. I'm a little intimidated about being on with you because every detail of everything touches so neatly perfectly organized, like even the fact that you did this ten year anniversary show about being let go the music stopped at the key point where you were going to make a statement and it stopped and there was no music as you talked and then it picked back up in temple later when you announced that you were doing this Kickstarter campaign like all those little details you you take into account and I'm not a detail oriented person in my conversations. What I try to do is like tap into my heart. What do I feel in the moment? Tap actually into my fear? What am I freight of in the moment and let that out. And so considering how organiz you ours at 'em I even going to be able to survive this. What is this about? So weird that my, that my brain goes like that. So here's what I did. I went to my second monitor my second computer, and I brought up this Evernote folder that I have full of everything that I had on my wall growing up as a kid. I hired somebody to come in and take all the all the stuff that was on my wall and all the little keep. Sakes that I kept and scan them in so that I could always have them. And I'm looking at it too. Just like reconnect with who I was so that I could be genuine with you. I think you want to see is like old. BusinessWeek magazine cover stories articles about next the computer company from back then TV shows about about successful people like teddy Roosevelt. That's who I was as a kid. I grew up in New York. It's okay to spire to do something big in New York. And so I heard there was a part of me also that internally wanted to. And so I'd read about all these people growing up as a kid. One thing that just happened to flash on my screen right now was a spreadsheet that I created in Microsoft excel with the little products and my brother and I sold and you can see for the first few months, it was no revenue revenue, and then it picks up and I had that up on my wall, and that's who I was before. I started interviewing this guy who just aspire to do something as big as all these people that I admired well, a lot of kids have a lot of ambitions and many times we talked to kids and they want to be a baseball player firefighter. Astronaut why? Why business. I think it's okay to aspire to be that because if you walk into a store, there's a t shirt that's going to sell. I just stopped my kid off the day at school. I saw so many Batman t shirts and superman shirts hits. So Kate aspire to be that our society encourages you to do that. I think there are a lot of people who say, I saw that eleven year old selling selling lemonade on the corner. How do I get to do that? I think a lot of people who want that. I think a lot of people who see these big buildings who see Eli on musk, see you driving in a tesla and say, how did who made that tesla? I liked that he's driving the tesla. How did he get to earn that tesla? And we just don't encourage that. And I felt in very real way at the time that nobody encourage it, nobody cared about it. That business that you had with your brother, what were you selling? So the first one, the one that I had here was. We just created a bunch of little apps. One was a spellcheck at before. There was universal spellcheck on a computer. The other one was something called easy, phone easy. And then p. o. n. e. that before Skype allowed you to make calls do each other..

"What's going on he chats? He says, I've, I've listened to mixer do forever. I like that you're engaging this way. Those I created this quiz, people answer seven questions and then they and then they get to send the response to the the result of the quiz to their friends to show their friends, how smart they are in that situation, sending more messages more than more than once a week obviously makes more sense. People are looking for more quizzed looking for more things to share. I've seen the same thing happened with bible quotes. People create bible of the day messages. People create joke of the day in those cases. Daily, even more than daily make sense. But for the most part, you want to ease off and that's one way to not be annoying. Love it. Well, I'm dying to find out that you started off with some really super crazy hooks on you're dealing with chats. I gotta find out yet, tell us what did stuff you're doing. It's totally off the wall chat wise. So I want to show you something that it's not what I'm doing, but. So the reason I know about this is invested in a company called assist and let me see if I can show you what we did there. These guys were one of the first companies to do chat bots. Share my screen. Here is my phone. Can you see my phone here? You can actually put put it on, do not disturb so that I don't accident and get my wife's messages communicates. Everyone knows what's he's going to send out. So I want you to see what Sephora what they did for Sephora because I think Sephora is doing something really interesting. So let me bring up Sephora. Now, this goes beyond marketing. This is an insight into where the future's going, and you can see on Sephora. When I start out, they dragged me real quick. Those people aren't to at Sephora just if they're guy forest. Oh, Sephora makeup to beauty brand. So do makeovers. They'll sell you make up so on. And so you can see that I can shop different looks. I can Boca makeover with them. I could share feedback. I could chat with a live person all within the chat bot right. I just hit the start over button by accident, but here we're going to try on different. Looks. So let's suppose I like this winged liner and read lip. Let's try it on. Now my camera comes up immediately. That's a great color on you, Andrew, and notice how I'm going to keep on moving and it will stay there. That's brenick, right. Let's try different. Look. See my my eyes. Your lips are on that you're there. You go. That was a more natural look. You see, my lips are there you go. You're right. That's the natural settled. Okay. Now, let's suppose that this is something that I like. I might want to share this with a friend so I could take pictures of this. I can do all kinds of stuff with this. Let's try. Let's go for this. Look stays there. I can choose who I send this to, and now I could pick from all of my friends in here or I could add a few others or I could send it to my story for the day and share it with the world. This is really powerful. This is the future. Now watch when I come back. I can actually start buying this. They showed me what I tried on so that I can buy. Okay. For most businesses, this is a little intense. We don't have to do things to that degree. We just need to say the world is switching to chat. We need to anticipate it and be there, and I know you guys are there, and so we have to think about not replacing Amelia, but if we're communicating with people be Email, how do we also add chat? How we also incorporate chat the apps? Absolutely. They love and we need to think that in the future it's going to be more than Email. It's not going to be a reproduction of Email. It's going to allow us to do cool things like this. So imagine if you have someone in your audience who sells a couch to be able to bring up the camera right there in Facebook messenger, see the room and add the couch in augmented reality in the room. That's not the future. It's here. I'm just saying for most people, it doesn't make sense for most businesses for most users..

"Twelfth floor of of my business, five seventy five Lexington avenue goes. This whole floor is yours, and he looks at me. I'm like twenty two years old. I go. Yeah, this is how we run our business. He goes. What kind of business do you guys run? I know you wanted to hear about me, but what is this? It's an Email marketing business. Email marketing built all this, how much revenue guys do said thirty five million dollars goes, we totally totally missed the boat on Email says, we've been doing so well with paper mail. We'd never thought to get into Email and I knew was big. I didn't know is this big, the same thing's happening here. The big is in Email. Marketing are going to miss this and new big people knew big players are going to come in, and I think that's the that's the power of this. I love it. I think a for me, some of the main things were super excited. We've we're adding a technology to are actually to MD. It's gonna be rolling out here next couple of months. It's really one of the main reasons I wanted to have you on the show is to help people understand it's this, isn't I address the issues far is justified or is this something that's here to stay? So it's addressed that went, I. Okay. So that's a really good question. The thing that I try to ask myself is when I talk to my friends, do I use chatter Email if I'm using chat more and more gets an indication of something. If I think about what do I like using more chat apps like I message, which I use with my wife like Facebook messenger, which I use with my customers like slack, which us with our developers. If those are the fun ways that I joined gauging with people and Email is the place I feel like I have to go. Spec that feeling. I have to respect that this is what's in my bones, and this is an indication of the future. But I also want data. So went back to app, Annie app, Annie looks at all apps of people keep on their phones and what they're most engaging. And I saw that across the board for every age group, people are spending more time in messaging than they are in in Email except for people, Forty-five and older, which case Email has a slight advantage, but you can see it starting to wear out. So my feeling my experience is we're using chat more. The data's showing people are using chat more, especially younger people are using chat more than Email, and so we have to as business people say, are we going to be stock and say emails the only way to reach people or thank you. Know what? Email is a good way. It's working. Let's not get rid of it, but maybe the futures chat and let's jump on board. Now let's learn it. Let's develop our audience there. That's the future. So that's what I believe. I think chats the future. I think that's the part I liked the most is the personal aspect, and people are always asking as I don't want to get into situation where people are angry because I'm sending a messages and as a business, how many messages are too many, how do I make it personal still? So they still want to receive messages so they don't unsubscribe from me. What are what are the tips and tricks that you found that a business can use to actually still stay relevant and very authentic in messenger orange out now, before I answer that, I've got to ask you about the earphones, what are you wearing? What is. These are my favorites. These are phones ear buds, actually. This is a gift from Russell to our executive team, and it's Bentinck it's offense. Yes. The actual apple ear buds somehow red and blue. The clicks onnell's colors. That's correct..

"Address comes not from them having to sit in fat finger type it in with Typos and everything. But soon as they press a button, Facebook passes the authentic Facebook Email address into my Email system. That's what we're talking about here. We've doesn't testing on that and that the social Email we find basically is anywhere from ten to twelve times greater response than some of the other stuff. We get people type it in different things. So I think that's awesome. Oh, you mean the Email address you get from social? Yeah. You know why that is. I had an Email address that was male at mixer, JI dot com because I thought anyone wants to send Email. She just send it to mail at maturity. Facebook came back to me and said that is not an okay Email address. I said, yes, it is at works said, no, that is not. It's a functional Email address. So what's that? When I googled it turns out for many businesses, mail at is like a business wide Email address, not a personal Email address. Facebook, super duper wants to make sure they reached me directly. My personal Email. Here's the main one and so they wouldn't let me get away with using anything other than the best Email address I haven't. So I now gave him a different Email address so Facebook, putting all that effort to get Email addresses. We might go piggyback off, love it. Very cool. Now we've been talking about what chat bots are. So from here, this kind of go how how people using these. You showed an example here as far as click funnels and going into yoga and all that kind of stuff. What are some of the big players are using this stuff right now? So here's the good news and the bad news. The good news is the big players in marketing are not doing anything huge in it, which means that we have an incredible runway to jumping and lock in as many users as possible. Get I lock in, I mean, get them to subscribe. There's they're free to opt out anytime they want, but we have an opportunity to be the big players in this. You know, years ago I had an Email marketing company and I remember this guy who was a superstar in paper mail, direct mail business with someone I admired forever. I invited him into my office.

The mixer g where I do interviews with entrepreneurs mostly software entrepreneurs about how they built their businesses, and I'm just in deep admiration of internet software mobile companies and entrepreneurs behind them. Potatoes gets a little bit different. Here's a thing a little while ago. Amazon recommended this new type of soap to me. I thought the speaks. This is exactly me. SP soap never speaks to me in the sense that it speaks to other people that lake, how it's gonna, make my hair shine essential oils. I don't care about any of that, but it was big bottle with the pumps. It was convenient that I could use the soap I could use on my hair on my body the whole thing, this is it. I always thought it was just like this whole. I don't know. The beauty industrial complex didn't speak to me. They were trying to sell me too many things. This was so perfect. I've been using this every single day since then I went from using it on my hair only to then having one on my counter to wash my hands. Then when my my three year old at the time ran out of his baby shampoo is who when he. That for, let's just use mine. I started using it on him. Then I use it on my one year old and just worked up, and I thought it was this quirky little thing that I found that I happen to see at whole foods one day and and frankly not the next, but I thought it was my thing. And then my team said, we've got this new interview for you. It's not a tech entrepreneur, what's with this woman who runs a company called e o products. Her name is Susan Griffin, black, and they create a collection of body and hair products made with active botanical 's impure essential oils. My eyes rolled at all that I'll be honest with you, and then they told me the numbers behind the business. I said, oh my goodness. This is the same company that makes that chiampou I use and the numbers of phenomenal who knew how ask him we get around. And so here she is, we've got around right now. This interview is sponsored and we're gonna find out how she built up this company, and I'm going to try to calm down because Susan people tell me that when I admire the entrepreneur too much when I liked the company too much. The interview becomes a little too saccharin and it loses the edge. They like someone try not to have that deep admiration for him. This interview is sponsored by two companies. The first it will help you find your next phenomenal.
