Ellen Bennett: Are You Creating a Product People Actually Want?

"Up. I we've got our conversation with ellen. She got her start by saying we're going to make the best aprons ever which was a bold move considering she didn't even have a business. Yeah i have. I had a passion about it. I was needing it myself. So is very much a situation where i wanted to fix the problem i had and i was also working at two of the best restaurants in. La and their uniforms were terrible like they were paper apron. They didn't fit well. Nothing was practical about it and yet it was such a commodity like nobody thought to make it better. And i wanted to make a better and so i started with this dream or kind of north star which was make the best apron that there can be full stop period. I wasn't thinking about. Is this going to be wholesale is this can to be retailed. Dita a be. None of that was part of the equation. I was simply like obsessive on the idea of making something that worked. And i'm actually really glad that i started it that way because it helped me focus on what was important which to your point is fantastic. Product like fantastic product lifts all ships if you will if you have a great product. You're going to be successful if you're fixing a problem but if you have great marketing and not agree product like little harder to make it happen out there. Great marketing will just make a bad product fail faster. And i love that idea. You've got to start with a great product and when you first started You had what you call a grit a willingness to fail in the courage to stare errors in the i. I love that. There's a theme and all of that. So tell me how all of that connects when it comes to creating great product absolutely similar to your to your first point on the humble azam. I was always willing to talk to people but also willing to learn. That's my formula for humble enthusiasm and when you think about success it's includes a lot of failure and the failure part are where you learn the most so every time i delivered an order. That wasn't perfect. I learned something. And i was getting something from it and my willingness to stare errors in the i helped the evolution of the product because instead of ignoring people in saying no. It's not actually. It's on you like you probably just didn't wash it right. I would say you're right. We're so sorry about that. we will take it back. We'll fix it and it made all the

CurlMix CEO Kim Lewis on Transitioning Between Product Lines and Creating Sustainable Business

"Tell us a little bit more about the transition from like subscription box company to signature products to dabbling in different areas again. Like tell us how you decide your product mix. We started chromos a diy curly hair so think of like blue apron but for curly hair. And we did that for like two years and that was my interview on south. I think my goal at the time. Half a million for the year. Neither we didn't think we'd have to. And i was like salty or whatever and i was like i had gotten pregnant. And how twenty seventeen and i was just like you know. My business is growing. The way i feel like you should be growing emphasis subscription. Box right And i talked to a few people. And i found out that the margins on my box way too small and what i have learned for anyone who does a subscription box if you are not getting products for free or if you are not Making it yourself. The margins aren't there for sustainable business. Usually and so we thirty percent margins for thirty dollars bucks whereas a typical hager company will have like seventy to ninety percent margins for the same price for one bottle. And i was like oh this even if i could scale this. I shouldn't because the math doesn't work. And so i was at the point where i really wasn't sure what i was going to do. With my business. I was like mcdonagh pivot. Close clothes pregnant. I started g. mat. I was figuring out of the nba. And i met my adviser I got a twenty thousand dollar arlen from backstage capital and she didn't give the money yet but she said basically said that like she wanted to invest in us in the meantime she will participate in all the backstage capital events But didn't have the money yet. So it's okay that's cool and i met my adviser who has a I always say this. He's a bald asian man but he's so nice and he is so smart. He's an engineer. Worked at as you tech companies early on and got shares and all that and he was like. What's your best selling box. It's our flexi gel manufacturers will make it for us you know they.

From No Experience to Multi-Million Dollar Business with Ellen Bennett

"Have a company called headley and bennett. We are in apron. Kitchen gear brand based out of los angeles. And when i started our company almost eight years ago we began as really a custom apron. Work where business for just restaurants and through the years it's really evolved into this directive consumer brand that outfits not just professional chefs but home-cooked is well all over the world. So it's been an exciting in amazing journey that. I just got to summarize into a book that i just finished. I'm very excited to push it out into the world and thank you for sending your book to us to. We've really enjoyed it and going through it. The thing i want you to tell everyone is how you actually started. The apron company is the that moment where you realize you were gonna jump for it. It's a moment. I think that actually happens in a lot of people's lives and sometimes you take the leap and other times you stare at the leap and maybe decide. You don't want to do it. But i'm a big believer in just doing it in trying and failing and getting back up again so that is exactly what i did. I was working professionally a couple of restaurants. I wanted to have my own restaurants. And i had gone to culinary school and i had this opportunity that just punched me in the face. Basically i was standing in the restaurant and where it was working. The two michelin star restaurant and then at the same time was working at another restaurant so fine dining and normal dining at the same time so you can imagine that was like a wild simultaneously and at one of those spots. Joseph santana my chef ran up to me and said. Hey there's a girl she's gonna make aprons. Do you wanna buy one. And i had been thinking about a chef coats in howard. Uniforms were just the worst. The fabric was paper. Stanage didn't look good at all and being a professional chef is a bit like being an athlete. You gotta show up and no matter. What comes your way if the push through to the end of the evening and get all the dishes out.

There's a even when like you're humming from the outside from the inside looking out so often it's just like duct taping as fast as you can to try and keep things from lake spontaneously combusting but one of the things i was curious about. You know we've talked about from the outside looking in also headed becomes this probably the world's premier apron company. Yeah like awesome designs like it makes but there's something else going on right and you allude to it From the very very very first moment which is you're not just making aprons like this goes all the way back to your alita. Like you're you're you're you're not just creating an apron which has a functional job which is good and important. Hasta work but there's something bigger going on here. Which i wonder like how important the bigger sense of purpose like how these things made people feel was to your ability to push through all this adversity. That kept dropping into your lab. Yeah and in a way writing. This book was my am foam to the adversity. It was me saying this journey has not been easy. And i've gone through it and i still everyday show up and there's a different adventure in a different challenge ahead but i can do it and you can do it too. And our product is designed to make people feel awesome. It's not just an apron and because of all the people that wear headley bennett. There's a whole lineage of incredible shafts. You put that gear on and it's not just an apron. This is the same. Burn that david and this is the same bernadette. All the chefs on top chef are wearing. And this is the same apron that you know on final table on netflix. Every chef one. That show was wearing hadley. And so it's like it's like.

I'm doing this amazing stuff but working a lot and now you're actually working three jobs because now you sort of magically spun this apron company out of thin air yes and did you have a sense for what you wanted to become in the early days or were you just kind of showing up and saying this is going to go where it needs to go. I mean because you're i'm i'm trying to think about. You couldn't have had literally like even a matter of minutes on any given day to breathe. Let alone talk about like leap right like let me plan that you're jury of this. Let me map it out and make performance it. Sounds like you're literally just opening. Your is working nonstop for eighteen twenty hours a day probably and then closing them and hoping to make it through the next day yeah an oil hundred percent in so many ways. I just kept thinking like you. Just gotta keep running. You gotta keep going. You gotta reinvest every penny back to business. Don't spend more than you make. Just go go. Go and i don't know why or how but there was just this desire inside of me to make this thing bloom.

"So let's talk about headland bennett. Because you've built something really incredible but I'm always fascinated by sir like the moment of inception and for you. It almost every business. Has this sort of like legend yelich of a moment or something that happens. You're working as a line cook in the kitchen and you just happen to hear over here something and then you make a promise that is almost completely fabricated. But then you decide okay. Now i need to actually live up to that promise. Yeah it was a crazy crazy moment in time. And i think all of us have moments like that cross cross our lives and you are either willing to take that leap at that moment or not but i guarantee you it happens to all of us so you just have to be aware of it and be willing to make that jump so for me. It was the chef said. Hey there's a girl she's gonna make aprons for us. Do you want to buy one. And i was like chef. I've apron company. I will make you those aprons. What's the turnaround. How long's it gonna take like. Give me the order. I will do this for you. And he's like you're line cook in the kitchen. what are you talking about. But convinced him and so he was like okay forty aprons. You've got yourself in order. And that was how the company began and it was very dream. I details later was just like decided in do it and i had to commit. My job was now on the line. I loved my shaft. He was an amazing person to work for. And i didn't wanna fail him. And i had already done all this crazy things in mexico where i just kept showing up and i thought if i can do all of that. I can figure out how to make this happen. I'm in the us. Anti anti-car didn't even have a car in mexico. It was so much easier to figure this out here so with my amazing latin community around me. I figured out somebody that knew somebody that could sew and pieced together really piecemeal that together. And then deliver that first order by the way jonathan dot first order when i delivered. It was far from perfect and my chef was like bennett..

"Can i had to swallow my ego a lot. But at the same time you learn so much even if you could talk your way into a management level job at a restaurant you just young. Learn at a profoundly different level when you show up as a line coach you know it is just you understand the culture and what it really takes to actually create this thing i think is such a powerful experience. If you're if you're willing to go there yeah and in a lot of people are like well. Where do i start. What do i do. And i always recommend go work for free. Go do an internship go shadow. Somebody offer something that you have that someone else doesn't have and just show up and contribute in a way that outshines everybody around you and makes them want to give you an opportunity and not outshine in a bad way but simply like if somebody shows up with a seven show up with an eleven in terms of gusto and when i first got my job at providence. This is a two michelin star restaurant. I had no idea what the hell i was doing. I barely knew it was a two michelin star restaurant. I was just so in awe of everything or bowed it that one. I didn't know what to do. I would just clean clean hard and fast and not made them realize that. I wanted this in that. I was putting in the effort and that is what people want. Even if you don't know what you're doing if you show that you care and that you're trying hard people notice they really do. And i admire so much especially now as we continue to grow and scale the organization every time we hire people we are looking for people that are no ego. If you mentioned you know what fancy schools you went to like. You actually don't need to mention that it's on your resume. You don't need to talk about that. And i have so many incredible people that work for us. That went to incredible schools. And i can tell you. Nobody knows it. Nobody knows who went to stanford versus who went to a community college versus who didn't go to college like people. Just don't talk about it because that's not the culture that we've created in the company we are about no ego showing up. Never stop learning like make magically.

You know. he could be a line cook or the head chef of a huge chain and everybody gets that same sort of love and treatment and respect because we're all individuals and we're all on a journey and we're all on an adventure together right so make people feel important because they are and that feeling is. I strongly believe one of the things. That really took headland bennett from you. Know ellen out of her house with three hundred dollars to now this much larger organization. That's amazing i mean. It sounds like that feeling also something. The seed was planted with your grandma but also that was it. sounds like those were summers. In those were moments where an understanding of food like the creation of foods serving others like that that he was also pointed in a really powerful way during the summers hundred percent and seeing how it made people open their homes up and open themselves up through. Food was really beautiful and it was very simple food by the way he wasn't fancy at all but it was so delicious and it was made with so much love and care that it did give me this urge towards food and the kitchen and being a part of it in one way shape or another and i always knew i would end up doing something with food. I just didn't know exactly what it would be. So that's another part in the book. How i talk about how. The road is very windy. And it's not a straight shot like okay and then you go to college and then you get a job and then you retire like that's like stuff you see on tv. That's not other real world.

"We looked like millionaires compared to some of my friends in mexico but they welcomed us in and they would invite me over for dinner and i would be so happy to sit down and have a bowl of beans with fresh cheese from the farmers market in a stack of tortillas coca cola for dinner nobody cared and they were so content that it made me realize that money was not paying that actually made people happy and then i had all these friends in the us that had so much money but yet their parents were never around and they were crabby. When they were they weren't necessarily happy in a lot of kids. Parents were depressed and it was just this whole different perspective happening all at the same time and i thought i like what's happening in mexico like what's happening in la. It's amazing to see those because it sort of like. It's like an invitation at a really young age to visit your values and really think about what really matters which normally like we never do until we're adults and a lot of times. Its way into when we're adults when we even do that if ever yup and it happened in such organic way that it just permeated my existence. It was just like oh yeah you make friends first then you worry about you know the idea of business later in my my grandma used to sell close door to door in mexico and she had all these friends and people would welcome her in and she was literally friends with everyone and they loved buying things from her but they never bought anything from her iraq. Actually just excited that she had something to share and they had something that they needed and they happen to be doing this exchange of resources but it was really a knowledge exchange and there happened to be some dollars in between but they were just pumped to get to do with each other and that's the beauty and there's a whole chapter in my book about how when you have a company and you're out there trying to you know get your idea in front of people might call it humble enthusiasm at one chapter and then the other one is like commandeering your copilot's and it's how you go about getting the word out of what you're doing without making people feel like they're transaction right you go to let call eighteen and you feel like a transaction you call them. You are number on the phone. But there's something that's so beautiful about interacting with someone that makes you feel like they really care and they actually want to help you if they can't help you they're not going to sell you anything. And that's the way i've approached. Everything with halloween bennett and my team has also done the same. In that is a beautiful simple truth that more.

"A. ish Sounds like you described your upbringing. Their as like you're the kid never quite felt like they fit in your totally. Tell me what was going on there. Well you know. I had been raised with a single mexican mama little bit different than a lot of my peers at school which was totally fine. It just simply made me. I guess you could say stand out a little bit. And it was a different journey because a lot of the kids had both parents and they had a big giant beautiful houses up in the hills and we lived in a totally modest little condo apartment in the middle of glendale and my mom nurse so she worked all day all night. You know twelve hour shifts as an rn and see her until the evening and we saw her very early in the morning when she left at six am so it was Independent as hell but it was also one of those things where we just weren't exposed to normal life the way all these other kids were in whatever normal means For me normal was being with my sister at home all day in figuring out. How are we gonna entertain ourselves. How are we going to. You know we need groceries. Okay well i guess. My mom left a credit card. Here like maybe we should figure out how to get grocery store like let's walk there and just being bored enough to figure things out was actually a beautiful thing and i feel very grateful that it wasn't this like buttoned up childhood where i had a tight schedule from start to finish off to my soccer camp like none of that happened to just allowed me to kind of dream big all the time and try things all the time That were unusual for for kids. Like there's story of me painting my mother's bedroom. Bright yellow expunge painting it yellow while she was working and she came home and she was like oh looks nice okay unite like it was. It was not. There's no big commotion about me trying to do different things around the house. He was just happy. That i was doing something i mean also i got to imagine that the level self reliance that you had at a really young age was probably really unusual for like friends of a similar age. Oh definitely an immed- immed- my daily life. So different and i felt like there were so many decisions. I could just make for myself. That my friends would. They had to call her dad. They had to go their mom. They had to get permission. They had to check in and for me it was just very. It was very unusual. S- very different. And when i decided that i needed to start driving because i would take the bus every day i would walk my sister to school which was almost over a mile away and when i finally said to my mother. Hey you know what i think. It'd be much more helpful. If i had a car so that i could do a lot of things that you currently have to do on top of already working so she said all right. That's a good idea. We'll is there a car that you you know is out there that you wanna get and my mom has a nissan sentra. I said okay. I'm gonna go find a used nissan. Sentra get a good deal on it.

But he gives grace to the humble so that means. If i'm trying to do something that really only god can do. He's going to oppose me. And i'm going to be frustrated because my plan's not working out but my plans never gonna work out if it's my plan i'm not god's plan proverbs sixteen nine. A man's mind plans his way but god directs his steps thankfully ever wonder why things seem to be going the opposite of how. You're trying to get them to go.

HOW TO DEVELOP THE #1 SKILL TO BECOME GREAT AT SALES

"What do we do with sales people. Aren't we like professional communicators and communication a performance and we have good days bad days. Good calls bad calls and we tend to fall into traps. Talk too much. Listen to little here things. We want to hear say things. We want to say that we're gonna talk about today. We've got an expert on this. Someone who's focused on helping sales reps and he now works in enablement and i think that is an overlooked part of the company sometimes just administration. I understand that but other times it's coaching training. Developing us helping us become better. I think you going to enjoy this conversation. And let's get right into it. Hey aaron welcome to the show way getting started gives a little background on yourself fussy. Thanks for having me on massey finals. Brian videos for very very long time. You will keep your leafy suburbs somewhere to look into fine My name's erin evans. I work for an organization called global. Data will the. Uk's fastest growing business intelligence company. My history is very much in sales. Enablement be look after the south function in For global data which is about four hundred and fifty people globally. I spent the nas thirteen years. Doing it always wants to sell in sales apron before it was cool with south ableman bs. That's that's a bit about me. Yeah it kind of had where everyone kind of unified around that term. What what was it called before then at least in your experience like missed a plate spinner basically is like a bit of every here to give it to him. He'll get it done exactly. He was like you will the cats Yeah my background. At a spice. My expertise is south. Trading south coaching probably more towards south coaching than anything else big believer in coaching. But yeah many everything from you know. Being the conduit between products marketing silos all the development or the coaching. All the training. That takes place. But when you're looking at off the four hundred fifty people between to do enough different hats and often absorb different responsibilities as well. And what interested you in that. Role versus staying in product development marketing or going directly as a route. Well it was in silence. I was in south not for too long but it was. It was really interesting station. I worked for was a huge multinational corporate. I started selling. And then i started helping people while i was selling very quickly realized that i was probably about helping people. Don i wasn't selling right. I was particularly bad at selling. I'm so very quickly. They transitioned into a raw which was a management role but then they realize that actually we can sort of scope this rolling out and get you dig more support trading coaching the rest of the organization. This value dana. So a love silos obsessively not cells. I left communication in general You know what can up so happy to wear the sows hot sometimes. But not not just the prospect of your head spring of the pillow every morning and your jaw assault job is to make some better than they were yesterday. And what what more do you want to do in life right. It's like it's such a such bonds in silence as well. It becomes even more interesting sign. And what do you think that came from was something through school or sports or growing up. Or i think of. I've always been obsessed communication since i can remember. Actually since i was a very very small chart have always been really interested in communication. How people talk the psychology of talking. I realized quite quickly that he he simplify certain things. If he can say things in a certain way you can get people to buy it and you can get people to do things differently and that fascinated me and a genuine and driven by helping people making people better as well seeking if you like the people because automating doug like you have to plaster smaller. You're facing your but particularly if you like people that that it becomes great and it gets for me like where wherever we've got a kick is working with young people because we're teaching them siles right. You don't really what you're teaching them. As communication you see every aspect of their life get better for being able to communicate better For me it's such a body such a kick out of it when you see people doing better in life. it's not just better in sales. And i'm not trying to kind of desperately scrape the nobility of what i do. I genuinely feel like you make people better human beings by making the better communicating. And what are they typically bad at as far as communication is it what they say is that they don't stop saying it or is it they they not using and understanding the other person's perspective so really really good question. She is a question are really enjoy answering. Because i think there's a multitude of different things in its light as well particularly as people progressing sales. When first starting cells you've got this obstruction of thousands. Which would you pick up the phone. Just talk people nights. It's really really far from that. Listening is the biggest one. I think the probably about fifty percent of most sales problems or sales organizations problems is both internally and externally in inability to listen correct. I think on top of that. It's taking quite complex ideas and stripping awhile the nonsense making it really easy for people to see value Get into the speed about value. Really quickly people see. Value quickly is really important but also another big thing is questioning. I think i think people really sold to people buy something from themselves if you can facilitate that process re fantastic questioning. Which in large part is listening. Then you've got the kind of burdens of a real quality. Salesperson person who saw real quality communicates notice people stay in sales. They progress as they become managers coaches. Ceo's directors unite and dot communication pc son critical. And when you meet a rap how do you go about determining where they are in their development. The first thing. I check for his credibility. If someone isn't coach -able you basically get spend the next hour banging your head against a brick wall so i'd like to ask a lot of meta cognition questions to get them thinking about thinking on getting them to explain how they think about things and very quickly you can get insight into how comfortable they are so to give some practical examples to your listeners. One of the best ways of doing this sparring listening in the interview stage as sporting country. But it's to be stage because somebody's comfortable you leftover lemon for the next six months. You know however long. Isn't he get rid of him right

Martin spent his days working with metal using it to create glistening swords sparkling shields and full suits of yes glittering armor and everyone agreed that of all the arms in the city. Martin was the greatest. Oh you should see. The sword mar made for me last week. It schumer's like moonlight on the water. Well you should see the shield he made for me. It glistened like the stars. I don't doubt it. The suit of armor he made for me is so shining so bright. It's reflects i chimera. Martin lived with his children natalia. And conrad in a tiny house at the edge of town. Martin's shop was in the basement talia and conrad loved traipsing down the steps to watch their father work i. He retired on his thick leather apron. Then he would heat up his medal into glow to fiery yellowish orange and grew soft and bendable after that he would use a heavy iron hammer to forge the metal into all different shapes. Then you would let the metal cool and he polished rubbing and scrubbing until indeed. It reflected like a mirror one summer morning. Martin told natalia conrad that he would be gone for the day on business. Listen you to. I need to deliver a full suit of armor to a customer who lives far off in the countryside. He turned to natalia natalia. You're the oldest. So i want you to look after your little brother. While i'm gone of course father i'd be happy to conrad rolled his eyes. Oh come on father. I don't need my older sister to babysit. I'm a big kid now. I know you're a big kid. Conrad and getting bigger every day. But for now you'll do. Your sister says hokey dokie. I have a long trip ahead of me. Need to skedaddle. Have fun today. My dears martin kissed his children goodbye and out the door as he disappeared down the street. Natalia turned to conrad with twinkling eyes. I have an idea little brother. The circus is in town. They're performing in the market square right in the middle of the city. Would you like to see it. Conrad's face broke into a grin. You bet i liked to see the circus. Let's go when natalia and conrad reached the market square. They were greeted by all sorts of enchanting sites. Agile walkers tiptoeing towering tightropes graceful acrobats swinging from flying trapezes plus nimble-fingered jugglers funny face clowns and hearted riders standing breath and tall on the backs of gleaming galloping horses during a break in the show. Natalia and conrad wandered around the square and saw vendors selling all sorts of goodies toys. Books candies but then. Hey natalia something else caught conrad's look over there. Look conrad pointed toward a jagged heap of stones in a shadowy narrow alley off the square. There's the old stone building to one worthy. Say the bacilus cliffs. Natalia felt her blood run. Cold everyone in town knew the legend of the basilisk. It was said that the bacilus kept the body of a dragon. The head of a rooster tail of a serpent down in the dink dark cellar of the old stone building. The bacilus stood guard over a magnificent treasure and if you stared into the bacilus glowing red eyes you would immediately turn to stone so sister conrad's mouth lifted into a mischievous smile.

"Chad. How are things today? Steve is great today looking forward to a conversation with our guests feels like a another guest that has a background is really relevant in twenty-twenty and we get to explore a company similar to our last guest doordash but in a slightly different Arena off doordash, you're right. It's it's going to be a really interesting conversation as you alluded to Our Guest today is calling Crowley. He's the vice president of customer experience at freshly and they are in the food Tech space and and really kind of the most in their own category. There are Weekly subscription service that delivers fresh gluten-free healthy Chef prepared meals in these meals are fully cooked. So all people dead. Do is reheat and eat. So when you think of it as you alluded to on the Continuum of Home Delivery, it's it's between doordash and our friend and and last episodes gas Anastasia story back and change their idea of of fully cooked meals delivered from restaurants. And then on the other side is something like Blue Apron which delivers you the ingredients and then you cook it and colon has had an interesting path to Fred. He's actually a published playwright and he started his career in the world of National Security working for think tanks in Washington DC and then he transitioned a customer experience working for e-commerce ticket company called ticket Network before moving to Freshly and he's been in freshly for just about five years now and I'm excited to talk to him because he's built their customer experience and support team from basically scratched and not having over 220 people and along the way he's the complete infrastructure of the customer experience including all of the structures of the procedures and and really the culture such ad. As we get into this conversation with calling. What are you looking forward to learning from him? I'm looking forward to learning from his creativity, you know, Colin having his background as a playwright you think about our previous guest we've got a DJ a jazz musician right? One of our guests had a background in Theology, and and today we have someone with a theater background, so I'm really interested in learning about the process that I went through that must have been a very creative process and building the CX infrastructure at freshly. Yeah. Absolutely. There's going to be a lot to talk about he's got so much to share about how he approached building this infrastructure. So let's go ahead and let's get started. Welcome Colin. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks is great to be here. Yeah, man, we're looking forward to this conversation. So it would be great if we could start out by maybe just having you tell us a bit about your background and what brought you to Freshly. Sure. Yeah, I kind of came into the customer experience space through a backdoor route. You may say initially studied history and political science and school and then I focused on what school security studies Worth US National Security. So it's going to have my my life working for a think tank or something like that cuz I like writing and researching and so forth. So I was down in Washington DC area and then ended up moving back up to the New England area because I'm from Massachusetts originally and moved up to help some family and I kind of divorced myself from any of the world of think tanks and so forth. So I ended up getting a job at the commotion take a network. Would you like one of the major competitors to Stubhub in the event entertainment in the event ticketing space and they were looking for someone who would come in and essentially do an analysis of their customer support infrastructure commend changes that would put it more in line with industry best practices. And the reason the CEO chose me was because I had the the communication background and I also had experience with The theater World cuz I'm also produced playwright. So I was just in the throes of getting one of my Works produced and really kind of co-producing that so he liked the the the blend of the Arts and the operational Logistics aspect of things off. So we kind of took a chance on me. So to speak and I stepped into this role and really dug deep down and learned my way through the industry and started to build up a team there especially in a customer support team and taking Network that ended up being about 14 people at its height and that dealt with certain higher-end clientele and I did that for about six years and also dabbled in some product management and things of that nature but was there too I moved to Freshly five years ago. So soon after the company was founded and we moved our headquarters to New York City and we just got in our series a and there was there's one other person in Customer Support who's staying with us as our senior training manager, but there was just one person there answering phone calls web chats emails Etc. And I was basically tasked with building up the customer support infrastructure from the ground up and Thursday. Really intrigued with the company and the product and just the excitement of being able to be a part of a company at that very very early stage. So I spent my first year and half so really until late 2016 just building the infrastructure of the team so high and hiring great people and creating a performance evaluation system and creating policies and creating tracking mechanisms for everything from customer satisfaction to customer issues and a training system and basically everything that you need for an organization to run smoothly. And then since then we really taken off we're home starting from 2017. We went from New York to open up a separate contact center out in Arizona and then we moved from Arizona to add some people in Maryland. And then Maryland we moved to add some people abroad So currently we have about two hundred twenty people in our customer support organization across five locations three in the US and two separate offices in the Philippines the little detours here and there we did some experiments and some other locations like wage. Africa and India so now I spend most of my time focused on some more overarching strategic issues and a lot spent in the technology space. So RPA and Ai and things of that nature.

The skinny on meal delivery kits

"Earlier this year. People who tended normally to eat out a lot have been eating home a lot more, and then as the months have gone on. People gravitated back to if they're not eating in restaurants to ordering takeout curbside delivery whatever. But that can get expensive in a time that a lot of people's incomes have really suffered. So there's something that was really hot back about twenty, seventeen, twenty eighteen, and that was meal kits and it was supposed to be the next great wave where you would. Get prepackaged containers with the the whole meals and then the step-by-step how to make them. See all the ingredients you know you had to do was cook them because they'd already prepared everything you need it. Well, it was like big hit at first and then amiss but these things are back. And doing stronger. Fact. Up Twenty thirty percent for a lot of these. And so. Consumer reports did a deep dive. On five of the very popular, most popular of the meal delivery kits. To see how nutritious they were, how easy they were to prepare how good the ingredients were and what it actually cost. To feed a family. And they found that these kits. varied. An price. Generally were very convenient. That the the kits typically had. Very good high-quality ingredients and the food tasted good. I mean consumer reports usually. Rights with a bit of a chip on his shoulder telling you what? The things that aren't that good was something. But they tended to. Like these kids. A pretty good amount. They were concerned with. The level of sodium. And a lot of the meals. But as a general rule, the meals were. Good to excellent is far as the kids. The Kit that overall. Consumer. Reports testers liked the best was home chef. The price per week one, And in every category. The user experience score was a five out of five I. Mean That's pretty awesome. and. So home chef was not the. But as a general rule, the calorie counts were very reasonable. And the variety of items, the vegetables, the grains. All of that very good There was one that was very expensive that also rated across all categories five for five and that Sun Basket where in the case of home chef hundred and seven bucks a week. Son Basket one, hundred and forty, four a week. Again the quality of the food. Good. The Calorie counts very reasonable. hellofresh. Hundred and one buck. So the cheaper so far of them. And did not get five out of five in all categories but did. Really. Well. Blue Apron. Cheaper yet. But The quality overall, the experience, not as good ingredients missing or damaged deliveries delayed A number of issues that people had using blue apron. And then the cheapest of all. was also more complicated to work with. Dennehy. Dinner Lee was sixty eight bucks a week, which was significantly cheaper than anyone else and people really liked the price points it but they found that it was more work to cook with the dinner kits and so if you look at that thing that people in marketing are always talking about the best overall value. Absolutely based on the consumer reports, testers and tasters and whatever else. Home Chef. When's the

Every December the holdover from win Venezuela was one of the richest countries in Latin. America families had money for these sort of luxuries. Caroliina order pays out, remembers the very first December that they did not have enough money for paint. The But I in her husband Orlando took it hard. Anthony Maheen NOPAL blessed, don't. Like US Orlando Pimentel was a civil servant at Venezuela wet, a lot of people working for him. He led an anti corruption investigation unit in the work. Itself could be frustrating. He'd collect all this evidence of corruption. No one would actually go to jail to instead. Orlando put his creative energy into cooking. His sons sort of Foodie. and He loves food, says he loved not only planning the meals, but serving them is a person that you would invite to your house for dinner and he ends up taking the Apron and taking the the knife from you. And you're like. Hey, how're Landau? Invited you. The economic crisis in Venezuela it started years before, but by two thousand sixteen, the signs were obvious. There were shortages of almost everything and massive inflation, which meant that Orlando salary stayed the same, but the money Bob less and less, you see your salary, becoming solid and water every month and every week you go to the supermarket and price gets up and up and up. Orlando and KARLEENA would ask themselves. Should he leave and seek opportunity abroad? The so many of their friends had done. So many professionals and teachers and other civil servants had gone to Peru or Colombia Ecuador to find whatever work they could and send money home. It was easy to see that the country was getting empty. Every night when you see out of the window and you see just a couple of lights in the building that in front of you because the rest of the apartments are closed. Caroliina was worried about him leaving. She read so many stories about xenophobia. Get yet his. Lesson Foyer Servant Selana. Backlash to the flood of Venezuelan job.

Orlando says the reason he stayed so long was because he just loved Venezuela, and he truly hope things would get better i. think he was kind of resisting. He was coping. He was trying to say okay. Let's try to do this. Let's try to find a second job. We call it. which is doing a lot of small jobs in order to survive? This has been chasing tigers or was it. Yeah, he's killing tigers. Why is it called Killing Tigers? Because it's so hard? I, don't know where the expression from because it's not easy to kill a tiger in my. Okay brief tangent here, but we kinda got obsessed with this expression, which at least one Arjun story traces all the way back to a blockbuster hit jazz tune from nineteen seventeen tiger, rag.

Because I spent a lot of time alone I'll like everybody else and I'm in new. Jersey so very close to the epicenter of New York. Things were just out of control a few months ago or a few weeks ago. so one of the things that I decided that I would do once. I heard that it could be helpful was too so fabric masks so I just went to. My sewing area, dug out all the savage that I had because I. Work in real estate as well usually for my client I will so the Mahan. ME, apron and I just had. Had all that fabric and turned it into masks donated it to the hospitals they they accepted it. They sent us. I did it with another tennis player Pope Amuse and so we would get them picked up, and then they would send us pictures of them in the hospital with the signs with masks with signs that would say, stay home or stay say or be well, so it was a little bit. It was a lot rewarding. So. What else have you been focusing on during this pandemic? Tell us a little bit more. One of the things that I did I spent the last few years working was some tennis athletes that were on NJ -til, excellence a team and they were now heading off to college, and I wasn't quite sure that they knew all the things they would be facing as a student athlete so I, did a virtual training with them, and they were from all across the country. It was about a dozen of them may have different challenges and things to to figure out or interview. current athletes. What's it like so? It was really eye opening for them rewarding for me because my friends. They call me the professor because there's two things that I did. I either get up in the morning and I profess I'm GonNa do this I'm GonNa. Do this do that do that and usually I'm spinning like a top and do any of it so so they can hear me and my cadence, oh. You're professing now. They just say we don't even listen to you. We know we know you're not GonNa do, but maybe one thing on the list, but the other thing that I do. The professors is I. Love to teach in. You experience some of that I. Just I just love so it was rewarding to work with the athletes and some of my individual clients virtually to do win for life trading. So, how do you guys Know Each Other? You mentioned? You know arena from from working together. What have you guys been up to together I guess in the past couple of years. Will I will the first time.

I typically say Washington Heights but I'm more in. Would in lactose seven I street? Yeah, that's why I ask because I know there's a difference. But anyway we were, we were New Yorkers kindred. Areas and so I was coming down to do someone's life training with the boys and the women were young men, and the women just help them be ready for what they might face on the tour in terms of media training. How do you do interview techniques? How do you pivot and not answer difficult question? How do you get your point across and we bonded right away. Away, because we both loved HGTV and we still do so so that was I don't know two thousand fifteen in Ben, I, guess the last time I saw her was in November during winds life training at the Sloan Stevens Invitational Camp and Rada was there is one of the guests, coaches and speaker, so we just and we just kept up. Overtime was the magic of text. The company's the Wgn Usda than hire you and win for life. Colin teach people and train them. They need to. I have done some.

No it's going to take my doing my sacrifice not what you do and it's what I do that you could become children of God through faith in Christ got it takes away the sense of the world and by the way this is really tragic. These luciferians green acres that they're wearing when these Mormons digest what they wear their burial. These green these green eight prints go to their death where them which is quite interesting because we also find in scripture warnings as against this whole idea about works righteousness and what we wear sometimes a symbol of Baba's Oliver Racists. Filthy rags before God right. We need to be closed. The garments versus ovation possibly not that it'd be my own righteousness but racist. That comes through faith in Christ and there's a really sick twist here because in masonry they are given and white lamb skins not represent priced lambskin aprons.

It talks about people being judged that are brought up from hades the underworld. Well the damned judge because of their works and they'll be doomed. Lesser names are found written in the last book in life. It's Jesus blood. It's the lab of God. What he did for us that gives us in our own works but in masonry? It's taught that God will look at your good works to the spotless apron that you're aware that represents what you've done and let you you went back to the garden back to the lie back to the Green Apron back to the lie.

"And welcome to a new episode of the dictionary. If your birthday is October fourth happy birthday if it's not listen to this another day a and pretend I said a different day so I just landed about two hours ago from a work trip in Orlando I'm a running a little bit loa episodes and so I need to record more so I can edit them because in addition. I am actually leaving tomorrow morning to go to L. A. For personal reasons those personal reasons are kind of silly. I have decided to be a guest. I kind of invited myself actually to be a guest on the Weird Alphabet podcast. They go through weird. Al Songs in alphabetical order and discuss them. Each episode is a different Song. They were gracious enough to let me come down and and record this which I will be doing ooh from the time recording this two days from now. If you're a fan of weird now music. I suggest you go check out this podcast if you're not I suggest you listen to it anyway. at the very least listened to my wonderfully lead dulcet vocal tones. No don't do that but you should still listen anyway. Let's get to the words we are at the top of page sixty two and end. The first word is a pertinent. I think our last word was a pertinence. This is spelled eight P. P. U. R. T. E. N. In a N T it's an adjective from the fourteenth century one constituting a legal accompaniment to we have these synonyms auxiliary zillion and accessory or is it auxiliary however you WanNa say it. That's the word as in a pertinent equipment and a pertinent is also a noun. Now we have an abbreviation. It is capital A. P. R. and it is an abbreviation for April now. We have a P.

This is a noun from circa eighteen eighteen eighty one loss or impairment of the ability to execute complex coordinated movements without muscular or sensory impairment a practic A. P. R. A. C. T. I C. or a practic are adjectives. The etymology says this is is from a Greek word which means inaction. It doesn't tell me what the word is or maybe a proxy is the Greek word and that is from a plus praxis which means action win and that is from processing which means to do and there's more at the word practical next we have apprai- eight P. R. E. S. and the E has an accent over it. This is French Let's see this is a preposition from eighteen eighty nine and it just has the synonym them after a F. T. R. as in Apprai- tennis and it is usually used in combination as in Apprai- theater party eighty so after theater party now. We have a prey ski. That's the ski word where you put the two things on your feet and you go down the snow. and there is a hyphen in between the two words. This is a noun from nineteen fifty one and it just says social activity as at a ski lodge after after a day's skiing. I'm sure many of you have had a day of skiing or even an hour of Skien and then decided that was enough. I'm done with that and I'm GonNa go relax and that would be called up. Ray Ski next we have the word apricot or as some people like to say April caught. This is a noun from fifteen eighty one a the oval orange colored fruit of a temperate zone tree resembling. The related did peach and plum in flavor. The temperate zone tree is pruning are many aca one be a a tree that bears apricots to a variable color averaging a moderate orange the says that this is an alternative of the earlier word labral cock a B. R. E. C. O. C. K. which is from the Arabic Al Beer Cook which which means the apricot and that is from the Latin person come or pry Cox which literally means early ripening gene and then in parentheses it says peach and there's more at the word precocious interesting next. We have the word April the month. I'm guessing I've seen this is a noun from before the twelfth century the fourth month of the Gregorian calendar now we have April fool. This is a Noun Amoun- From Sixteen Ninety three the butt of a joke or trick played on April fools. Day also such a joke or trick fun. Fact One of my good friends is actually born on April fools day and it explains so much that is our next word April Fools Day it could to be pronounced April Fools Day with a Apostrophe S. for fools or it could be fools is with the apostrophe after the S. This is a noun from seventeen fifty three April first characteristically marked by the plane of practical jokes next we have a a priori and this is bringing up nightmares of a previous word. If you don't know what those nightmares are please go back and listen to everything. This is an adjective from sixteen fifty to one a synonym is deductive one B relating to or derived by reasoning from self evident propositions compared to here. It is a Posteriori now. I looked this up after I edited the episode and maybe I should do that again. The emphasis was on a different part than I expected so I think it's pronounced a or a poster real story poster Yori sure. Let's just say that's good. Hopefully I redeem myself. all right here. We we go with one C. presupposed by experience to a being without examination or analysis synonym mm-hmm is presumptive to be formed or conceived beforehand. A Priori also an adverb and a priority. We already is a noun. This is Latin and it literally means from the former all right next and last WORD IS APRON API R. O.

That was a lot of definitions. We have an adjective form. It is aproned the etymology says this is a middle English and an alternative from a word Knapman or neighboring which is for Middle French nop Iran which is a diminutive of nape which means cloth which is modified of the Latin Mapa which means Napkin. I'm going to pick up ray ski as as the word of the episode because it's just a such a great feeling to just relax after you've done something physically active. It feels so good to be physically the active but then when you're done it just feels so good to relax and know that you you worked out you did something good for your body and now you can just chill so that's the end of the episode. Thank you very much for listening until next time. This is Spencer reading the dictionary goodbye..

Who's scoff Senate who knows? Male cheerleaders. This is what I would say are the ultimate cheerleaders. The fact that people say, well, it's a feminine quality to be a trailer. No men have you ever been to a bar. You think those people are men are by nature cheerleaders when they watch sports. So. Talking about the physical attributes that it takes to be good. This guy was my roommate was a big athlete and instead of playing football. He didn't wanna do he became a cheerleader and changed the way it was done at Heidelberg. He determined that. He wanted to be a cheerleader because he'd been a cheerleader in high school. And this was a big guy, and he wasn't gay. Just he was he was able to do it. And and then cheerleading changed because the I think there should be a male to you. Why are there more meal cheerleaders is it all about the discriminatory? If you think about it. There are plenty of guys out there who protest protest. Yeah. Today is national seeing eye dog day service dogs guides for the visually. Impaired labrador retrievers, golden retrievers German shepherds commonly used as seeing eye dogs. I was at the hospital yesterday with daisy. And for those who are wondering I talked about her yesterday. She's okay. Couldn't find a blockage that was permanent. She has a little problem with your kidneys. But she's homes came home last night, and she's resting and she's gonna be fine. Thank you very much. I was concerned a lot of other people sent a lot of love in her direction. Very nice. So as I'm sitting there is when we came here with a lab and the sweetest. Oh my God. I all the dogs when they come in. They come right to me. And I don't know because they got my vibe or they smell the stuff from the farm. Way. A both of those things with this lab came over to me and put his head in my lap, and he had a kidney operation and lost one of his kidneys. And they were checking them is twelve thirteen year old lab, just the sweetest sweetest thing. I take all this part of me that wants to make my farm a canine sort of retreat and have hundreds of dogs just running all over the farm. That'd be amazing all the time. Right anyway. The demand for seeing eye dogs. This is the thing today. Seeing eye dogs stay calm focused under difficult circumstances. Goes back to World War One. Lot of soldiers came back. Have you seen the promotion for that movie? But World War One that's around now. Somebody has taken the footage actual footage and colorized. It of what went on. This is when movies where I made, and it's supposed to be very impactful. I'm looking I would like to see it. Frankly. One of the the reason I'm bringing it up is because there's a lot of focus on the dogs because of all the men who lost their sight during World War One. And so this goes back the first attention a dog trainer day was back in one thousand nine hundred twenty seven. A lady named Dorothy Harrison Eustis from Philadelphia wrote an article about the German guide school. She lived in Switzerland. And then Morris Franken blind man from Nashville came across the story wrote to ask if he could come to Switzerland and train with and then get one of the dogs. He said he would return to American teach others about guide dogs, if he was able to get a dog, and he agreed that he could the dog came back with him after coming back with a female German shepherd named buddy. He started a seeing eye dog school January twenty ninth nineteen twenty nine same day. We now celebrate a seeing eye dog day. There's dogs another female name, buddy. Cat. Yeah. Speaking of Jennifer, Jennifer is terrorist is he was on television tonight. Please madam. Well, it's gonna be kind of a weird net on television because it was scheduled to be state of the union night. That is no longer happening. We've found out that's happening next week. So now a lot of reruns it kind of interesting things on CBS. They're going to do a look at super bowl's greatest commercials. They'll go through the past favorites. That's right. A whole hour of commercials. You can catch that on CBS, eight o'clock. Yeah. I think it'd be fine mean some of them are very funny. Some are sweet. I know there was one that I think made us cry right last year. So. The CW has a new episode of the flash tonight, followed by Roswell New Mexico everything else on the networks is in reruns.

"Kit provider, blue apron Holdings, Inc. Shares rocketed thirty eight percent on Tuesday after the company said it's confident it can achieve a version of profitability this year. What the heck are they talking about? Well, I'm confident I can regrows some hair this year as well as long as we're living in fantasy land. So pretty much what blue apron is doing is. They are moving away from what are known as generally accepted, accounting, principles, GAAP or gap accounting could possibly go wrong. And they're saying that these are the following items that they are no longer going to be including in their accounting going forward. Okay. So you say, okay. Like, what are they going to be stripping out share based compensation expensive? If you pay someone in stock as opposed to in money, they're stripping that out. Even though you still have to pay them and dilute your stock in the process interest expense. They're not going to be a account. For any interest that they pay on debt net operating expenses, other income provision for income taxes and depreciation pretty much what they're saying is if you don't include money, we're paying out we're profitable. Right. Right. Right. And somehow the stock rallied forty percent on that news, which means. Suckers out there. I it feels like they're suckers out there because it doesn't change. The underlying fact that most people who sign up for blue apron don't keep it for a long period of time. Yeah. Yeah. The the the the churn rate is unbelievable. Their revenue, by the way. Like just just looking at it the their revenue fell by twenty five percent for the year over year. And and somehow were rallying on that. Right. It's just I don't know doesn't make sense more than one half of Internal Revenue Service employees will work during the coming tax filing season. This according to the treasury department as the government tries to implement the 2017 tax law during the partial government shutdown the twenty the two twenty eighteen tax law tax law changed that's a, you know, the the government shutdown from an IRS standpoint couldn't come at a worse time because there's a lot of people file their taxes this year. And it's all changed all the rates of change the rates of all change. I I've talked to CPA's they're still waiting for guidance from the IRS on how certain things are gonna work. They don't have it yet. They still don't have guidance on. A couple of key areas that they're looking at so the they are going to be bringing forty six thousand people back to work, and effectively you not paying them while they work, but they'll give them back. Pay wants the shutdown is resolved forty six thousand Chuck what's stopping them from saying screw about coming back. I I'll go to work for somebody else. I go to work for CPA firm. They could they they could very well end up doing that. And. You is just ludicrous. I mean, the the you it would be like me saying to Tucker. Hey, tucker. We want you to produce the show, and we'll pay you. But not for ninety days, it Tucker's gonna say hit the bricks buddy, I'm outta here. I've said it before this is the type of stuff that happens in third world countries when they can't pay their people like this. This is not what you usually see in developed nations. This great. This is amateur crap. Yeah. It it. It's you know, what I wonder now we were January sixteenth. This thing goes another week or two I wonder if they push out the filing deadline to may fifteenth or June first. They might have to in some cases, they they might have to you know, they're twenty six days behind the belt right now. Right. Like every day. And and the problem Chuck is the paperwork is mounting up. Right. All the emails are still coming in. All the phone calls are still coming in their backlogged by twenty six days right now. And and you know, you you look at it. And especially, you know, you've got companies that have to get tax forms ready in those those forms should be all set and ready to go. But if they have questions, they can't necessarily get those answered by, you know, the government, and so you might have cases where you know, if in HR director, if a Bank has questions about certain forms, and how they need to be prepared this year. They might have people to answer them at the moment. Another consequence of the government shutdown is the nation's craft beer taps are being squeezed which has put new releases on hold and prevented new breweries from opening and stopped shipments of some suds across state lines. Tucker insisted that we cover the story. I'm not quite sure what? Well, it's it's a problem. If you want to drink the latest and greatest from our great craft breweries that have popped up all over the place recently. So for example, let's say that I'm running a craft brewery. I'm running Chuck's beers. And let's use Trillium. Right. The the Trillium that's because they sell in other states. Yeah. So let's say the Trillium wants to come out and say, okay, we're going to do a mid winter monsoon beer. I I don't know what they'd call. Let's say they want monsoon. I don't really talk. They can't do that. They have no way to get that through the regulatory process to go and sell and market that right now. And so they can still brew beers that have already been previously approved. But they can't do anything new. And if you're a new company of you, let's say that you secured financing to open a new brewery. Right. You can't open that brewery right now, unless you've already gone through the regulatory process and the whole thing with craft breweries is to try new ones. Right. Like, it's like where you go and buy your case of Budweiser, and you just drink, but all the time craft brewery, the whole ideas, they come out with like one a month or something don't they they think it's it's a regular currents or trillions coming out with do beers. They changed it up to stay right on the cutting edge of beer snobbery. And I say this is someone who likes craft beers Monday. There's a snobby element to it. I mean, you get you get all kinds of beer snobs. Just like you get wine snobs and cheese snobs, and you know, all kinds of them. You definitely get him in the craft beer space. Well, it's knob ary, it's also. So like to your point people like wine, right? So the craft beer has become a poor man's version of wine. Right because you buy, you know, you buy a bottle of wine for fifth actually might be a rich man's versa. Yeah. Even inexpensive craft beers. What five bucks six bucks? One of them. Yeah. Bottle winds got four and a half servings in its if you're getting a six pack thirty forty bucks. There are many people who by thirty to forty dollars bottles of wine. There's a lot of people working in the craft brewery. Now, the the number of employees per case beers way above what it would be.
