"Was a strategic advantage. I i hope that term it is. I mean i think short term is it has slowed growth But i think in the long term. It puts me in a better situation where i fully understand. You know what it costs to do. All of this. I understand you know the the little pieces as they all build together. So hopefully you know. Having that i you know on the other hand i wish i was a little freer in my kind of thought process. But you do the best with what you have and you'll find the people who know what they're doing to do the things you're not good at right so if you're still you know i'll call it home. Based in the sense. I mean you have multiple ovens and refrigerators eliana two. Oh it's comical to be honest with you yes. I have two ovens. They run about twenty hours a day in december Yes i have a regular refrigerator and my kitchen as anybody. Would i also happen to have two more refrigerator-freezers in my dining room as most people would not I also happen to have Two full freezers as a full refrigerator and a refrigerator freezer in my garage which is probably a little excessive For most people. So yes i definitely Have outfitted the home office a little extravagantly in that in that way but that you know that has allowed me good bad or otherwise to continue to kind of plug through here okay. So there's a question. I always a few questions. I always like to ask my guests. But we're going to do it. Two ways so i'm gonna give you a chance to think about it. What is the best business advice you've ever received. I mean. I think it should be true to who you are because if you know especially in a company like mine if i can't push out the product that i think best represents my company It's it's not gonna work. You know there are a ton of brownies out there. That are good. There are a ton of cookies out there. That are good What what. What makes mine better and i think part of it is we will you can ask. I mean i do think the taste is better than a lot of them but more than that. It's it's the it's the where it comes from. It's the heart behind it. And if i can't be true to myself in my company then what's the point here speaking of taste. We're going to take a short thirty seconds. I'm about ready to bite into the dark chocolate in sea salt. Cookie saw how why why. I'm kind of munching a little bit. How do you decide formulations in in kind of decisions on what products to roll out That's funny that you ask specifically on that cookie. That cookie was actually requested by one of my stories that i sell it They said can you do some kind of dark chocolate sea salt something or other. So i gave them three Three different Flavors we came up with a that one. We came up with that plus two cons. And then i think we came up with that I think pecan carmel and salt or something like that and they decided they liked that one the back then. I had several people. Try them You know it's funny. Never a lack of people willing to try stuff. It's amazing you know you're listening. Lots of taste testers available Fills it's fantastic. I i mean it it it is. I think i was saying earlier in that member when i said it. But my my wife got to the white chocolate macadamia nut in her first response was while this tastes so fresh and and which is another question of in advance of an order. How how far in advance do you bake order the. Yeah the thing with the cookies though is that we pre we that so we do big batches of them. We've put them into a cookie balls and then we freeze them in bags on unbathed so that when the orders come in we take them out of the bag we bake the cookie fresh and then package them and send them out And then the brownies we baked order. So yeah that's that's a little bit of why december is such a Crazy difficult time. Because i really you know to be honest. They taste exactly the same. If i were to freeze them but in my in my head that's just not the same thing. Let's real differentiation for you. You made a comment about what makes you different than you know other. I always look for differentiation. In so many times consumer products. It is the brand. I mean the birth. The may brand really is is your is your value. Proposition is the promise of whatever freshness and the things that you do in staying true to that and to me is a marketer. That's how you scale. It's it's not. You could add cakes and pies and you've already done that on your website. I saw but there's other things you can do. Expansion beyond the and because of the brand promise of of bertha mae. You gives you that flexibility to to scale. And so i think that's the most emmy again the market the most valuable thing you have because you can add and delete product. But you're not adding or deleting the brand so that's really powerful so when you think about business what keeps you up at night when you're thinking about growing this business. The product not the production the on consumption the consumption side of it so knowing that there are enough people you know if i if i if if i move out and i build a kitchen and i do all of this stuff. That's exactly what you said before. It's knowing that there's a consumer there. It's knowing that those enough people are buying that product to keep us in our new house and And that's frankly that's what keeps me up night and what prevents me from taking that leap as well. So that's you know. That's the bridge. I stand on okay so it kind of teetering on do i go. Do i do the next level or do i stay where i'm at right. You're you know what you're comfortable with where you're at and that you've been doing this year's for four years now we just passed six six okay But yeah it's it's taking the leap. Because i'm not naturally i'm fairly conservative in my you know financial leanings. As far as you know what's in my bank account you know you wanna you to believe that. There's a safety net and even if there isn't one so you know With so many businesses that a couple of the other shows and presentations the rate of failure of businesses. Within the first five years is incredible. So the fact that you've gone beyond that is fantastic and and it does take persistence. It does take commitment. And and i go back to your background knowing your numbers and and understanding how you grow successfully in the risks. That are involved in that. So what do you think has been your biggest challenge to growth. Just getting it out there. Honestly you know whether it's Making people not making the.

I knew early on that this this religion is just not for me. But I I played the game. I shut my mouth. I played hooky from church. One time my mother kuzma's and not not do that shit. Again.

"Slash bookworm. Tidbits about their lives and their work. It's. So as we were reviewing Naomi Jackson's book, we talked a lot about writing from the things that she knew the influences that were on her things like that. And that's one of the things about authors. Is you can only write what you know. And so a lot of authors writings are reflection of their own personal life for the things that have influenced them. And so I bring to today my favorite buck Jane Eyre by Charlotte. Bronte I fell this book when I was a teenager, and I won't harp on it. You know, some may not have read it. But if you haven't. You should take the time to read it some day. But I bring it up because Jane Eyre is a reflection of a lot of major influences in a lot of things in Charlotte on personal life. Like first of all Jane Eyre in the book is a governess and Charlotte Bronte was governess actually worked for a family. She worked as a governess for strangers. She actually hated the work. And so so it's kind of interesting that her main character would be from this job that she absolutely did not enjoy. But she was herself a governess number two. If you have not read the book, I apologize now for Rudy in it for you. But the mad woman in the attic was actually inspired by real life events. It seems so fantastic. When you're reading the book, but in the same year that Charlotte onto his writing she visited the Norton Conyers house in north Yorkshire where she learned that sixty years before a mentally ill woman had been confined in mad Mary's room in the attic. And that story about the crazy woman in the attic inspired Bertha Mae. Listen, who is a crazy woman in Jane Eyre? Number three, the third reflection of Charlotte on his life is the her school experience. If you start Jane Eyre, it's kind of very depressing in the beginning. Jane ends up in a very terrible boarding school where she goes hungry in his get sick and his abused. And all these things while when Bronte was five her mother died and her poor clergyman father had to raise six children by himself. So they sent them off to boarding school where they endured bad food cold buildings and physical abuse. In fact, in the story, Jane Eyre, there's a character name Helen who dies in the very beginning of the school. And that is actually a representation of Bronte sister Maria who actually died at the school when they were there. So that's interesting. Well, I feel like the most experiences in in that time period with boarding schools were never very good ones know, they're pretty terrible. And they lay the foundation basis for a lot of literature that was written during that time the experiences there there the thing is bronze. Hey wrote the novel Jane Eyre will she was nursing her father who was going blind. And if you read Jane Eyre, there is a very significant moment in the book about a blind person somebody that goes blind eventually and her father had actually this is really creepy. Pre anesthetic operation to have his cataracts removed. Oh, yeah. Which might be why he still ended up going blind, man. Yup. Preeti lake. No. No, no. So anyway, those are just some of the reflections in Jane Eyre that are reflection of Charlotte Bronte's on life. And I think if you research a lot of authors and the books that they right? You will discover that much of what they write obviously is based own personal experience. So if you haven't read Jane Eyre, get read it I'm going to it's on my list that was not enticing enough mind. Crazy women in the attic sounds fast. Random recommendations for media's here's JD's bookworm tip. All right. Well, my tip today is another podcast episode. I like doing this on occasion. And there's a show that I discovered not long ago called the illusionist, and they didn't episode titled a novel remedy, and of course, that piqued my interest as soon as I saw that title. And of course, it's a it's a play on words. But the whole point of this episode is the host Helen's Altman explores this idea of using literature as a treatment for different types of ailments. So she she has the this clinical psychologist, Jane, Gregory on the show, and she talks about how she sometimes prescribes novel reading to her patients. These these studies have been done what show that people with different emotional issues or things like that have improved. By reading certain types of materials and. Another guest on the show on this particular episode in academe ick guy, Cuthbertson talks about how post World War One Britain was kind of collectively soothed by reading Agatha Christie murder mysteries. Hearkens back to your fact about just improving your life on your health by reading, and so this is very much in that same vein, but there's actually some science here that that these these people have looked into. And I thought it was just extremely fascinating. And I thought it was worth mentioning here. Well, it makes absolute sense. I mean, how many books have you picked up in red, and you just immediately fill butter or immediately feel worse. Just depending on what you're reading. So I can totally see how the right novel can make you feel better. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's very interesting. This this I Qala just talks about what this concept of the cognitive behavioral therapy. And so again, it's interesting. If you think that sounds fascinating check out the link in the show notes for the illusionist and the episode is called a novel remedy. That's a medication. I wouldn't mind taking everyday definitely we'll real quickly. Just want to say thank you for tuning into this episode.

"We've been hoping to learn more from Theresa about Lawrence Brown, and where he'd been the years after the paper company hitman incident happened, but when Theresa mentioned being at the call on the day of the disaster at want, no more. But that Theresa told us about how on the day of explosion Thelma Swain had been working out in a garden as she loved to do when Thelma Swain at felt the earth move -ther she'd known immediately what it was. She would later tell Theresa that when the grounded shook and she'd heard the booms explosions the first thought she'd had was Lord who died there today. Thelma Swain hadn't known it then but her niece Theresa was one of the workers there at the call. Tree center best friend Bertha Mae had actually been supposed to have the day off. But at the last minute, they decided to go into work anyway, she Bertha Mae both worked in the cure room of building one thirty two where they mix chemicals and Theresa had several cousins who were also working in building one thirty two that day, but they were down on this line making trip flares. Theresa told me that was where she was still in the building. When explosion happened. Whenever cousins stepped away to the bathroom before the fire started and Theresa was trying to find her to warn her suddenly everything all around her was just fire and went to turn around again. That's when she saw her best friend Bertha Mae engulfed in flames. Theresa begin to run Reese the bathroom door. Swung open her cousin was there run. She yelled the buildings on fire.
