The number one way to show you care and connect with clients

"Eileen welcome to the show as a way of getting status tolls about yourself. Thank you hello. Brian great to meet you. Thanks for having me on this show. So i am the founder and ceo packed with purpose. We are a corporate gifting company with a social mission so we provide an alternative to the traditional corporate but all of the products in our gift boxes do good so they create a social impact in how to come up with this idea. Yes so my background has been wonderful. Dance between social impact in business and marketing. So a few stops along the way. I was a peace corps volunteer years ago in paraguay then also worked in social impact advisory work so right. Before i started packed with purpose i was actually consulting to chief sustainability officers in marketing executives. Trying to help them figure out how to invest their corporate social responsibility dollars to both have a business return but also a societal impact so it was a typical cold day in chicago in december and our office was riddled with ubiquitous holiday. Gift and i was just looking around saying there's gotta be a better corporate gift. There's gotta be way for a vendor or a client to say thank you. And that's when. I had the initial idea behind putting together gifts where all products had a really unique story and actually contributed to the greater good in their community. Cool and so. How do you start. Where do you start. Well i i always say you just have to start somewhere and it's definitely not perfect but you have to start and if you start talking out loud and getting people's feedback you can hopefully start taking it down the path of what eventually your target market is going to be interested in so I actually founded the company in two thousand and sixteen. And the way i got it. Initially off the ground was put together a really low fidelity prototype so i- crowd. Sourced logo came up with a name but together that was passable and i had a first birthday party for my daughter and is a parting gift to all of my friends in the adults there i gave them a pack perfect gift and i told them that i'd be following up with them for a five to ten minute market research call to basically elicit their responses into get their thoughts so that was the first version of packed with purpose as we know it. Obviously it's evolved a lot. Since then where do you find the people generating the gifts. Yeah so we affectionately. Call our suppliers purposeful purveyors and our purveyors primarily are based all over the states so their social enterprises or purpose driven companies in l. a. Detroit chicago miami. I can give you a few examples because it really helped bring it to life so that people can and how are gifts created an impact so we were with the wonderful social enterprise. Right outside of washington. Dc that works with women who might have previously been homeless. They might have various various to To employment they could also have been survivors of abuse in their part of this incredible social enterprise at basically teaches than baking and cooking skills through the production of various products that they make like granola cookies which we then source for gifts. And it's a way for them to get their safe certification so that they can find gainful employment actually land on their feet half financial stability when they graduate from the program so we're the recipients of their products that we carried in our gifts or another example. There's a wonderful organization that provides employment to adults with disabilities and they make a whole range of cookies than toffees chocolate covered pretzels. And it's through both the housing program and a personal professional development program to these adults with disabilities and we source those products in our in obviously in are providing them with all of those amazing opportunities through that organization. How do you find your clients. Yeah so you know. One dominated do the work that i've been doing. I was exposed to a lot of social enterprises through my particular job and it's really a tight ecosystem so we started working with some organizations. Let's say in detroit. They would ask us. We'll have you heard of these other ones or when we worked with an organization that may be served a particular population whether it was youth or women or individuals that were previously homeless. You know there's a tight ecosystem where they wanna help each other. So i would say if i. It was a lot of referrals Also then his evolved towards a lot of the research that we do in that were looking for you know certain types of organizations where they have to have truly a high level of impact. They have to have high quality products. Whether it's something that you're consuming or it's highly functional like a journal or tumbler. it's gotta look good

"eileen" Discussed on We Saw the Devil

"There has not been any known site of tom. And i lean launer grun Nothing else is washed ashore. There is absolutely nothing else to indicate what exactly happened to them. So what do you think. Do you think that that. Tom had a suicide. Had a death. Wish and he basically brought eileen into the fray and brought her into something. It was very clear from the diary entries that tom had a death wish and was concerned. Eileen very clearly was concerned that something would happen to her and it does not seem that eileen wanted to die also if you take into account the slate that someone that people found it seems like they were in distress. Someone was making a call for help. So it's all very fascinating and it's all incredibly incredibly sad. But i want to know what you guys think. Do you think that they kill themselves. Do you think there is a suicide pact. Do you think there was a murder suicide. Pack do you think thought. I lean predicted her own demise at the hands or just involvement of her husband. Tom or do you think. They faked their deaths in their off somewhere in australia. A rainforest or somewhere living life living their bus lives and if you have not seen open water get the chance to see the first one It really really does a great great great job. It just conveying the camerawork a bobbing camera. And that's actually something that no one had really seen before in film. Is they pretty much. Set the camera on the water. I watched the making of. And i mean these actors were absolutely incredible in the film. Obviously they are attacked by sharks and killed you know ultimately by sharks and that's why this case got so much media attention is because everyone knows how shark-infested australia is everyone. Just defaulted to our killed by sharks and that was pretty much the narrative the entire time that this case was being discussed during and after everyone pretty much immediately defaulted to while they either fake third us suicide or sharks and so it became this kind of huge being especially in western media like in the united states and europe that they were eaten by sharks so it's spawned the movie open water which then in turn became one of the the big shark movies ever made the cause of it. Check it out. If you haven't. It is one of my personal favorites but there is a very very and very very sad case spine so that is it for today. Guys had to do one of my personal favourite cases.

Managing The DoorDash Data Platform

"I'm interviewing said here. Taunts about how. The team at doordash designed their data platform. So can you start by introducing yourself. Give having meet tobias. I'm a big fan of your data engineering podcasts. As mentioned earlier. I definitely find it a good source to include mike knowledge. This a lot of good interviews. A lot of good information that can be had from there a duly the engineering organization that we call data platform at ash consists of a few disciplines such as real time streaming platform machine learning platform experimentation platform it a warehouse etc and vina dodi fayed about a year and a half and came from over there for about four years doing something similar managing the data of the marketplace organization at river. So glad to be here looking forward to shut definitely. Do you remember how you first got involved in. The area of data management date as ls fascinated me. When i was a kid rock my first access to computer the first thing i did on. Ms dot crown to type into plus three and hit enter and was hoping that it comes up for the right answer. Percussion it said. Bad commander filename and i was like what anyway. That joke is said to me. Computers were always like number crunching machines and data crunching machines. And of course your rent of internet. Now it's a messaging machine and together with the data crunching capabilities and messaging capabilities. At think is what has made the martin technically possible. As far as my professional engagement goes for the most part of my career. I was a generalist back in engineering. Started my junior netscape back in the days. My first introduction to specically about data and data management was at net flicks reused a joke aren't net flicks that it really is a log event processing company which just happens to be in this teeming movie business to make money and really the volume of data that we had at netflix's what got me really interested in the crunching area. That's where my journey began. It just took it forward at uber who had the passion continued and sheremet that door dash continuing search gonna passionate all the now. Seventy an interesting career are going from netscape to door dash with many stops in between and so you mentioned a little bit about what you do at doordash where you head up the data platform team. Can you give a bit more of a flavor about seven. The responsibilities that fall on your plate and some of the ways that data is used to power. The business adore dash eileen the data plaque from engineering organization. Which for as the internal customers are date. The endless data scientists machine learning engineers. The operations folks are the folks that manage the business on the ground so those are my customers. The goal for the team is obviously to station. The best possible big data stack if you wanna use a buzzword that enables all of the computing power that we need to gain insights entered the marketplace as far as where data is used at nash. A little bit of outdoor show. I'm pretty sure people have heard of the company but a little bit of a primer on doordarshan. That explains why we use. Data jordache is really a multisided marketplace. There's the merchants which could be restaurants are stored owners. That are the dashers who essentially are the folks that drive or or right and and deliver the items and then there are consumers like you and me to that order food or any other items to the app. i'm so that's the multisided marketplace and a few other areas include convenience and groceries where that are other actors in order as well so anyway. This huge marketplace generates a lot of data and the goal of the organization. The data platform organization is to figure out how to harness the power of this large large data set to optimize the market. This essentially ended up to my business. A few examples could include something like eta. Ats estimated time for. I will when you order some food. We door he obviously wanted to come. And as soon as possible and it's critical for us to be as accurate as possible when we come up with eta while if he under predict what the is going to be then it lead to bad customer and bad user experience or or called the likelihood the customer is going to churn and go competing app for example. So these are the kind of work that really are my responsibility on my teams responsibility work with a lot of data scientists tick endless machine learning and genius together to make this possible because you have so many different actors within the platform that you have to try and understand the behavior of nba to optimize for imagined that the current state of the world with the pandemic has thrown your overall capabilities of being able to work with that data and some of your existing models of out the window and of curious what the overall effect has been in terms of the scale and volatility of the data that you're working with and your ability to be able to use it effectively. It's certainly as although we've had steady growth. I should say for many years now if you look at the chart but the pandemic definitely accelerate the shift in our consumers behavior for the most part. They're embrace the denver. The option wholeheartedly. And there's a lot more growth to be had there as well but you're right in terms of wallet tenacity especially talking. The machine learning martyrised that we had earlier bids machine learning modules that typically built on historical features. Which is how the custom whereas the the prediction were based on historical data. Of course that all change when the pandemic hit and yet to retrain our models pursued than new world that was an interesting exercise in addition to that it's about the volume yet volume is increased. Many folds the wisdom of data. I mean and so that brings in challenges in terms are scaling the services that we have the right to set to address the increasing volume the complexity of the use cases that we have now

"Ah Polar Vortex weather system is bringing severe weather conditions to several states, according to The New York Times, roughly 150 million Americans are in the storm's path. Utilities in 14 states have already started rolling outages due to low electricity supplies. Jennifer McNatt from the National Weather Service Southern Region says this weather event is rare putting this into context and you look back in our history over temperatures. There's this event right now. It's probably similar to two other events that we've seen in this area. One occurred back in 1989 and the other occurred in 18 99. That's how significant this cold outbreak is. Uh, somewhere in between those two very significant event, so it definitely ranks up there in how unusual it is for this area. Meteorologists Eileen Devora explains. Record breaking temperatures will continue through the week. This cold air is in place, and it's not budging for the next couple of days. And there's yet another storm system that's gonna follow this. Similar track that what happened earlier this week and over the weekend. If you remember over the weekend, Seattle got a lot of snow. Oregon had ice that dip down into Texas earlier this week and caused the snow and and the ice in Texas. And yet another one developing tonight and into tomorrow. The theme kind of continues just a really harsh winter for folks in the South and especially in Texas. While great conditions in California remains stable. Other states typically rely on each other via energy imports and exports, so saving energy during the evening hours can potentially help free up supply for those in states Experiencing the winter storms. P Genie says it's prepared to meet the current demand for power and callous. So isn't expecting any outages in California. The chemical hiss news in any 3.1

Biden administration to "re-engage" with U.N. Human Rights Council

"And I'm very Louise Kelly. The Biden administration is taking a new approach to the United Nations, so it wants to make sure it has a seat at the table at U. N agencies that the Trump administration left that includes the Human Rights Council in Geneva as NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. The Trump Administration denounced the Human Rights Council as a quote cess pool of political bias. The Biden administration says the 2018 decision to pull out left a vacuum often filled by authoritarian countries. The diplomat representing the U. S in Geneva now Marcus are announced today that the U. S. Is rejoining first as an observer. We know that this body has the potential to be an important forum for those fighting teary and injustice around the world. Being president of the table. We seek to ensure it can live up to that potential. There are many human rights crises that could be discussed there. A military coup in Myanmar a crackdown on protesters in Belarus and Russia. Then there's Iran. The repression is at an all time high for the past 15 16 years I have covered it that Tutti Guy Amy, who runs the New York based Center for Human Rights in Iran, he says the U. S absence from the council was felt back in 2019 when there was a deadly crackdown on protesters in Iran. That was something that the Human Rights Council if it had its center of gravity should have immediately moved to an emergency session for it. It did not happen. The Trump administration blasted Iran for the violence, but Gammy says it would have been more effective if it had done so with others on the Human Rights Council. Trump's former U. N. Ambassador Nikki Haley accuses the council of covering for dictators and being biased against Israel, she says it's sad to see the Biden administration give it legitimacy. Eileen Donahoe has a different perspective. She was Obama's ambassador there and said U S leadership made a difference. We got a special rapid tour focus specifically on Iran. There was a commission of inquiry on North Korea. We got multiple special sessions on Syria, which meant that the focus on Israel decreased dramatically without the U. S. There, she said Via Skype, China has upped its game. Avoiding scrutiny of its crackdown in Hong Kong and with the U. S. Calls a genocide against Muslim

Thirteen Awards Movies to Watch Out for, Oscar Do-Overs, and More From the Mailbag

"Before we get into the mail couple things over the weekend hit in the world of movies. First thing i want to talk to you about is the thing. I spoke to the directors of this documentary series about which is tiger tiger woods. Now you know as a friend of mine and podcast partner that. I am an avid golfer. And a fan of the sport gulf you are not a fan of the sport golf though your partner is and so golf is in your life but not truly of your life. What do you know about tiger woods. And what were you expecting heading into this documentary. Well in addition to being one of the greatest golfers in history isn't in history and certainly one of the best athletes of the twenty first century. That the correct century yes which i do know about because athletes at that level become pop cultural figures and i am interested in pop culture. Even if i'm not interested in my husband lecturing me about what type of iron tiger woods is using which is like a personal hell that i live in on a daily basis so i know a lot about him as a pop culture athlete and then obviously he has a pop cultural significance all of his own because of the events that he went through in the public eye at the end of the last decade and really honest life for the last decade. Yeah and so. I think that this series is an interesting gambit on. Hbo part it's clearly inspired slash based on a book that came out in two thousand eighteen by jeff benedict and armond katayan. And it's an attempt to make sense in real time of probably the most significant american athlete barring lebron james and michael jordan i would say of the last twenty. Five years maybe serena williams in that conversation. I think it's a very short list of people that do for. The tiger is kind of hanging with in the last quarter century and the film is tricky. Because they only aired part one thus far part two is next sunday and so i don't think you can necessarily spoiler film like this but it depends on. What kind of your you are if you're very engaged in the tiger woods story and his life. I don't think that this film necessarily will teach you a lot about the events of his life. There are not a lot of revelations. I think there are some emotional revelations there are some there's some I guess the matic framing that. Maybe you wouldn't necessarily put together if you weren't deeply entrenched in his story the movie especially the first half of the movie takes great pains to portray this father and son story and to show earl woods. Father as the kind of dr frankenstein at and making tiger woods into this kind of frankenstein monster for better and for worse in that he's incredibly powerful but there's like all kinds of emotional danger in his life I one thing that struck me as i re watched part one last night and i watched it with eileen. It's there's a lot of golf highlights in the first half. And there's there's there's not. There's not a lot of scandal there's not a lot of there is some psychology and there is a lot of sort of personal background about how tiger grew up and who he became. But because he has this sort of monochromatic mono-syllabic experience in the world where we just. He very rarely showed himself to us. Basically what you get is like ninety minutes of an extraordinary highlight reel dovetailing with the story of a father and a son and what they mean to each other. And i think if you're a casual observer my my instinct was. Is this going to work for people now. The second half is different. Can of worms. And i don't wanna spoil it for people but did in the first half. Did you find yourself having a hard time entering the story. I did also watch this with my husband. The aforementioned gulf maniac and the soundtrack to watching this was every time golf shot would be show. Its accuracy like you know it was like a little gallery of one. And he was doing it under his breath and then i was kinda. Are you aware that this is happening. And he was like sorry and then he just kept doing it at a lower volume. I have to say when you show golf. As just a highlight reel. Tiger woods is most incredible shots way. More interesting to me personally than the stuff that you guys have on the tv on sunday afternoon which is so boric. My guys pretty. Good a golf so i enjoyed it in that sense i agree with you that maybe it's not that i had a hard time. It and another interesting thing is that i. I do think if you know even a little bit about tiger woods you kind of know about the earl woods character and that is a pretty established part of his pop culture story. It's a big dad. Big character looming. Dad figure familiar sports figure in show bizz figure for sure and Greatness and then the fall. That's kind of what you know. And as as you mentioned there's a fall there there is a part to we won't spoil all of it but if you are watching this documentary you probably have some idea of what's going to happen in part to and the even najah it at the very end of part one which is the very last shot is a very famous woman. Just sidling up to the camera. I that's that's great filmmaking. And i think when the documentary is leaning in to that winning in that side of the story because it it leans into all the aspects of the story but when it goes for that bit of flair and narrative tension is is when it succeeds

Virtual eviction hearings can make horrible situations even worse

"Millions of americans remain unemployed in this pandemic and can't pay their rent so people are being evicted. All over the country eviction hearings have moved to zoom or webex or even the phone to limit the spread of covid nineteen in courtrooms but some tenants advocates say. The virtual hearings violate people's rights.

FEAR OF FEAR

"This lady was cautious. She decided she wouldn't let herself go and her drinking and she would never never take that morning drink. I didn't think I was an alcoholic. I thought my problem was that I had been married to a drunk for twenty-seven years and when my husband found a a I came to the second meeting with him thought it was wonderful simply marvelous for him but not for me. Then I went to another meeting hand. I still thought it was wonderful for him. But not for me. It was a hot summer night in 1949 down in the Greenwich Village group and there was a little porch out there in the old meeting place on Sullivan Street. And after the meeting I went out on the steps for some are dead in the doorway stood a lovely young girl. Who said are you one of us houses to I said, oh goodness know my husband is he's in there. She told me her name. I said, I know you from somewhere. It turned out that she had been in high school with my daughter. I said Eileen. Are you one of those people and she said oh, yes. Yep. In this as we walk back through the hall. I for the first time in my life said to another human being I'm having trouble with my drinking too. She took me by the hand and introduce them to the girl that I'm very proud to call my sponsor this girl and her husband are both in a a and she said to me oh, but you're not the alcoholic. It's your husband. I said, yes. She said how long have you been married? I said 27 years. She said 27 years to an alcoholic. How did you ever stand it? I thought now here's a nice sympathetic so long, this is for me. I said, well I stood it to keep the home together. And for the children's sake she said, yes, I know. You're just another martyr, aren't you? I walked away from that girl grinding my teeth and cursing under my breath. Fortunately. I didn't say a word to George on the way home, but that night I tried to go to sleep and I thought your some martyr Jane wage. Look at the record and when I looked at it, I knew I was just as much a drunk as George was if not worse. I nudged Jorge the next morning and I said I'm in and he said oh, I knew you'd make it. I started drinking nearly thirty years ago right after I was married my first drinking spree was on corn liquor and I was allergic to it. Believe me. I was deathly sick every time I took a drink but we had to do a lot of entertaining my husband like to have a good time. I was very young and I wanted to have a good time to the only way I knew to do it was to drink right along with him. I got into terrific trouble with my drinking I was afraid and I had made my mind up that I would never get drunk. So I was watchful and careful. We had a small child and I loved her dearly so that held me back quite a bit in my drinking career even so every time I drank I seem to get in trouble. I always wanted to drink too much. So I was watchable always watchful counting my drinks if we were invited to a formal party and I knew they were only going to have one or two drinks. I wouldn't have any I was being very cagey. Because I knew that if I did take one or two, I might want to take five or six or seven or eight. I did stay fairly good for a few years, but I wasn't happy and I didn't ever let myself go in my drinking as my son our second child came along and as he became school age and was away at school. Most of the time something happened. I really started drinking with a bang. I never went to a hospital. I never lost a job. I was never in jail and unlike many others. I never took a drink in the morning. I needed a drink but I was afraid to take a morning drink because I didn't want to be a drunk. I became a drunk anyway, but I was scared to death to take that morning drink. I was accused of it many times when she went to play bridge in the afternoon, but I really never did take a morning drink. I was still woozy from the night before. I should have lost my husband and I think that only the fact that he was an alcoholic to kept us together.

Gently used perhaps before you get a case of skin crawling anxiety over covid nineteen, hear me out the new initiative called Pottery Barn renewed is in collaboration with the renewal project. The company cleans and rehabs unsellable inventory including return items that would otherwise end up in landfills.

Pottery Barn is the first major retailer to partner with the renewal workshop. The company says, this is its first step toward becoming a quote circular business in other words is working to ensure that goods and materials are used for as long as possible. And the impact could be significant. The Renewal Projects Research found that more than eighty percent of what brands consider waste can be renewed and resold.

"Is with US and Richmond Virginia Hi Kisha. How are you? I'm well, how are you? Good how can we help? WELL THIS IS A. Doctor John Alley but. I have bipolar disorder among some other things and. Through the years, I've made a lot of bad decisions and mistakes when it comes to money. Probably about five or six years ago I had a really bad episode and I got myself into a lot of guts. and. I'm still digging out of it and. Basically. I know the things I need I should be doing I need to be doing to get out of that I. still have problems with the with my fire polar where impulsive. That makes it hard sometimes but are digging. Taking your medication. I not on anything at the moment. I'm kind of coming off of something describes something new. Okay. Can you working with the psychiatrists right now? Yeah I have to find a new one because my insurance just said, they're not going to cover any more So so you got it bipolar one diagnosis and they're saying they're not gonNA cover anymore. They're not gonNA cover the people were saying okay. Hi somebody new. So that's number one number two. Do you have somebody in your life that helps you be accountable? My boyfriend helps them my mother But I? I am single. I live alone. And I'm asking you. I'm asking you like a boyfriend in a mom. Those are often not great at they're good cheerleaders and they're good neighbours. They're not great accountability Partners D of somebody that you trust that would hold your debit card for you. Decide you have cash. Here's what I'm getting and you've got to set up some boundaries in your life and barriers that make it very challenging for you when you're getting a manic state to do something that you're GonNa have to live with for two three, five, six, seven years. That's what I'm getting. What I'm wanting to know what we need to do. So you need to find somebody probably not a boyfriend are you in a church? and not at the moment. Yeah you've got to find whether it's a church and a pastor whether it is a a bipolar group in your community that's got somebody that y'all can meet with regularly maybe it is your mom but somebody in your life that you can sit down and say, I've got these Eileen this way when I'm having a manic state aniline this way when I'm in a super-low state and I need to set up some guardrails for myself but all this starts quite honestly Kisha you gotta you gotTa Take Your Medication and Vokes with bipolar one are notorious for getting in there and feeling better feeling a bit leveled out and then they quit and think everything's all good and then they. They stop right and they go right back to where they were. So that's my big recommendation to you is get with a psychiatrist asap someone that you trust not this just gonNA dopey up and say, all right going this on your way who's going to talk to you learn about you and then you're gonNA have to get some accountability in your community. That's GonNa, help you when we're about to get off the rails Keisha, your finances, he'll only to the extent you try.

Meteorologist Eileen Devora says both of those wetter weather patterns are expected for August. The clouds and the high heat. It's not too untypical to see That kind of cloud cover in August. It's a monsoonal flow. We get that moisture from the south, and unfortunately it tends to make it feel very muggy around here. So when you have heat in place and a building heat wave and you put on top of that some of the McGee kind of feel it just is going to make it feel. Pretty oppressive through the weekend. So we're just starting into this dangerous and long lasting heat wave that will probably go into next week. There's a potential we get five or six days or more in a row that are at 105 or higher, So it just is going to be relentless with that cloud cover those overnight lows might say in the seventies or even near 80 some mornings, so that's just how hot it's going to be.

Irish architect designer and modernised Eileen Gray the Bard Graduate Center Gallery in New York City is currently exhibiting the biggest retrospective of the designer's work in the US since the nineteen eighty s. a good time. We thought to learn a little more. His uncle's mate Lee Evans. Eileen Gray was truly a modern day renaissance woman and pioneer of the modernist movement trained as a painter gray was an architect and designer working in furniture textiles and graphics though many may know her name thanks to contemporary furniture pieces set into bliss steel gray experiments with numerous materials throughout her career. In fact much of her initial work was a very different style. Utilizing the ancient technique of lacquer locker at the time was a very unusual medium. It was primarily used for restoration for furniture on the French at this particular time or very suspicious of lacquer because of its mystical properties. That's right if a golf curator of the Eileen Gray collection at the National Museum of Ireland. It was an ancient technique that not widely used in contemporary furniture. Design on gray really. Singlehandedly began to introduce locker pieces at the furner exhibits at the time at the Salim's at the time and the French publicly took on the critics began to shower her with praise for her very unusual work which really does the work of cubist movement freezing.

I mean we've been on it for many many years. I mean we you know sort of embedded in our in our way of being But the industry is is looking at everything you know looking a- at The starts with the raw materials. That sort of the first agenda item of this group Because you know the the fashion business solid about fabric clothing you know so. Half of our impact on the environment is the materials are actually seventy five percent if you include the processing of the materials. So that's where we focus. That's where the industry is focused. People know that like making genes. Yeah it's really bad for the environment. Yeah we're all of the places that a white t shirt has to travel on the items before. It's me so water. Use this stunning stunning. You guys as I understand. It did an internal audit of environmental practices. And what did you find Our Environmental Armenta practices We're always doing that. We measure all the time We what did we find. And when did it We've been doing this for some time. We set What we call their vision? Twenty twenty goals about five years ago when we made a commitment that we wanted to be a one hundred percent sustainable company which To be perfectly honest we are not and But we found I think at that point we started really. We'd already been looking at all of our raw materials and trying to redirect our processes to you know become more eco preferred materials cereals and things like that and Profound a lot of things you know. everything we learned we learned. We have a whole team that works on this every day. And so we're always we. We know that things like organic cotton. You know not using pesticides that's huge. Only one percent of the cotton that is used is organic so all of our cotton like ninety eight percent or ninety nine is organic. That's just one material but things like Rayon. A lot of ran comes from cell ran comes from cellulose A lot of it actually comes comes from the rainforest From cutting down trees so it's hard to trace so we make a point that if we use ran which we're phasing out of Because even the processing of ran is Complicated and polluting. What would I'm making an assumption here but I'm pretty sure it's right it ray on? It's used all across especially fast fashion less than it spent. Yeah what would people need to know. How do they know that that's in? Their clothing is labeled Well we label all of ours with fabric content CA. I'm not so sure if that's required and I think a lot of companies do all those companies want to some more close. Yeah so less well true we want to sell more of the good stuff. That's the plan But yes I think we want to encourage customers to to To slow down to be more mindful of their choices as and because actually that is the consumer the consumer is the mask consumerism. This it's not. It's not helping us either. You know it's making our lives a little crazy we. I think we often think if I buy things. I'm going to be happier right and I do. You feel that sort of initial eating right. Yeah pass a day or two yeah right right. And that's why I think especially millennials value experience right so because you don't want to sell just masses of right. What does that mean for your margins? How much higher margins after be Well I I don't think that our our margins have to be hired to sell less I think It's an adjustment. I guess in the business model. I'm just thinking I think I think Well I don't know I. It's not what we do so I don't think about it as mass You've never thought about. That's not the way I think about it right. So where am I going with this You can think about it will ask you about re about reselling okay items yes to collect and you have for a while Yes yes. I didn't years. We've taken back for tenure from as long ago Eileen Fisher from whatever well we're of thirty five years old so in the very beginning by ten years yeah you do with that right so we We resell as we clean and resells much as we can and so many of our stores have a section that has the recycled gold clothing available to customers to buy and than what we can't sell we have a little factory up in Irvington We call her tiny factory. It's not so tiny twenty thousand square feet here New York on the river up on the river and we remake the clothes.

Let's dig in you know something positives going to come of this so What happened with us is that we were taking these clothes back and then we found that we were building up these piles of clothes that we couldn't resell and we were giving them to charity and and things like that but it was just too much we had three warehouses full of it? Glows couldn't resell. We couldn't put them in the landfill so we started Looking what can we do with these calls and we started remaking them into sometimes close but now we're also doing a line of you know like a little pillows and we have wall pieces and we did big show in Milan very exciting. There's a cool machine. Oh yes. The founding layer a bunch of pieces shot video or something. Yeah Have this wonderful woman. Sigi who works works. She was my very first employ And she was the one who starts icy. Yeah she started the recycled program. And but she's the one who found the Thelton machine which was never used for recycling in the way we're using it people make installation with these big felton machines but actually pillows. We're we're doing a sort of typical thing and all one of a kind things and they're just starting to be available in our stores the pillows and some like five of our stores and online line. You can see the pillows and the tiny tags. And there's yeah we're getting there exciting. You have called the brand. Eileen Fisher quadruple bottom line. What does that mean? Right Right It means we measure Our environmental impact our Our social impact. So that's kind of our internal and external so our employees well being and also the well being of the workers in the supply chain right But also of course profit. I almost forgot that one I was like what's the fourth one right profits right. Yes so let's talk about profit and profit insuring privately held still. Yes you use up. I own sixty six percent and the employees on forty that happened. Yeah oh well There came a point where well first of all there was a once. We started having extra profit. The first thought was share it with employees. They the work you know and they you know it's only fair to share which I think all companies should have to do by the way saying that to my kid. It's only affair to shake that up. That's good all right. That's coming up tonight okay. So you said you think all companies should do that. I think all companies should do that. That would helped level the playing for aggressive. Push for that. Yeah Yeah so only after you decided not to go public right well I we were doing profiteering charing before so that was soon as there was extra profits we started sharing the prophets but then Company started wanting to buy the company and I was like well. That's that's not really what I wanted to buy You can tell me now because it's old days.

I own my mom money. I had bought some clothes spend given me permission to so so she said how. Are you going to move back and I went and worked at a gas station. Peter back all nine hundred dollars and then I kept working there but how did Burger King at fifteen shape. You well I I got to buy contact lenses. That in those days cost two hundred dollars and it took me several months to save the money to do that but I think it gave me independence. It's you know it gave me choices you know. I worked at Burger King and then I've worked as a waitress and I saved enough money to put myself through college college and And I also think in terms of shaping me. I was very practical about money and I think that I understand the value stand end money understand the value of money. Do you think that has stayed with you because it has been with me through my career I still think about do. I really need to buy that coffee or I'm going to bring my lunch to work or just just the practicality of it. Yeah you still you still despite all the money you've made. Yeah Yeah Yeah I had to be like now I. I sometimes travel business class. I class but I had to be really. I think you're just down and you know just because it seemed frivolous. Yeah I was like well got just a few hours. What difference does it make? You know a little better food or food in general these days. That's true three hundred fifty dollars. Is that what you started the brand. That's right that's right. How yeah? I know it's crazy like I didn't you know I I I. I was a designer did graphics and interior but I didn't know anything about designing clothes really you know although I think design is design and you can you know design a lot of different things but I didn't understand the bash business at all. Aw I didn't even know you. You should do a fashion show. If you're starting line no at all no. Have you ever done New York or Paris fashion. No no no we. We do fashion week in our way in our showroom and you know maybe you know but never never of a runway show. Didn't feel you were just in vogue a few weeks ago. You didn't feel like like you needed Anna wintour sitting on the sidelines She's terrific you know But I think about it. I didn't know it worked that way so I didn't know all that that would be beneficial so I was just at a meeting with her the other day as about sustainability. So they're good. That's a really which will interesting now. We need her her. That's great because and we'll get to that moment but the fashion industry clothing access clothing hatchet huge contributor to waste in this country and in this world so three hundred fifty dollars to start the brand and the influence of Japan. Yes okay and the Komo no help to me about how that all. Yeah yeah well it also comes back to my mother because my mother saved every scrap fabric when she would so so I was very interested in Not Wasting sure so I was fascinated by the chemo when I was in Japan because First of all I like the shape you know the simplicity of the shape and movement and And but also the fact that they were only that shape for over a thousand years in Japan. I thought what an interesting concept you know. What a timeless idea I of no waste that you could keep using these things year after year? Pass them down to the next generations they have trunks full of their Kimonos. Of course now they wear western clothes you know but you know for put timeless classics. Yeah yeah definitely you make it to a trade show. Yes you're back in the early days ago roughly nineteen eighty-four. Okay all right so the first show I sell close. I stand there. I can't speak the first day because I you know speaking is not what I do a little nervous pictures and I guess I was so nervous I couldn't speak. I just remember and people would come by and ask me you know What does it cost? What are the style numbers and like Oh style numbers? Oh could you come back tomorrow. Let me think about price you know really you went into a transient without thinking crazy. After Burger King and all of that so I understood about money. I knew that I wanted to sell clothes. Oh so you know but I just didn't know you know I just didn't know what to expect but you know I started talking to other designers. There's and people there and they helped me to figure how to price the clothes and style numbers on them and all that and I sold a few I sold I think eight stores and my first Ah Show and you know that was great little start and I was like I felt like I was learning is understanding the business you have described in the past the women that where I lean Fisher as artists therapists and teachers. Yes okay and journalist Okay right okay. It's broad yeah. Yeah yeah well. I think it's broadened. Lots of women find the close But I think it has something to do do with the way that you kind of find yourself in them that they don't sort of where you you know their their There's you know I guess there's a certain style about them but I don't think one always will look at someone and say that's an island Fisher like today people companies that you know. I'm wearing your sweater. I'm wearing your pants. I'm wondering you know you know they do all the New York Yeah but I do. I two more commonly I give people my credit card and they go to know that there's a famous designers of the same name as you love that No but I think what I was saying is the point about the clue like I'll often not recognize someone wearing island fisher because they become their so simple. Yep If they become you what is the key because I if I can find that purple sweater I bet it would look pretty similar to something that you would probably. How do you keep something timeless and elephant especially in the age of fast fashion exactly and Scranton? How do you do that? Yeah the first rule is keep it simple and The second I think is good quality material and Yeah Not to you know like you want to move with the trend. You know so if it's if people are wearing skirts or you know if the sweaters are shorter a longer the necklines are changing kind of move without a little little but those kind of things are kind of They're kind of timeless. It's just how you put things together that allows you to shift. Things have have you one thing I thought of as we were preparing for this interview is if I can say this in a polite way I I hope to it comes across it. You are In older executive in the fashion industry. Yes right yes yes yes I kept thinking about. Does she face ageism you talk about yeah schism. Yeah have you ever. I mean you didn't take the company public you don't have an investor is you don't have to. I answered them but yeah I just wonder if you've ever faced that in in your life Personally probably not I would say not good. Her saly I'm sure yeah. I'm sure that's a problem for women working. It's a big problem especially for mothers who tried to get back into the forest after taking a decade or so to be a parent they many experience people think. Oh well you're not relevant of it right right where I I mean ages. I prefer my thirties to my twenty S. And I will be better than my thirties and I think with age comes experience. Yeah yeah well that's nice. I agree And I also think we do. We do wrestle with with relevance in terms of Our our audience we've built an audience that's loyal and grown with us and and reaching the next generation has been in You know work for us.

Yeah it's six high yeah So that can be a barrier for some young yeah of course yeah You do resell clothes. We do resell. Yeah the lower price point but do you. What do you know about younger people on the brand? Yeah I know I know that they like our most simple pieces the ones that they they really look at it and go like oh I see. I'm just going to wear that black cashmere sweater every day is the perfect simple thing you you know.

Is My dad talking about driving to work the next day after taking her to the hospital and you know He. He said he broke down crying. He pulled over to the side of the road and said he had just been thinking the day before on his way to work that these were the happiest days.

You know I got inspired. And did she get to live to see what you built she she I saw enough of it because he did she did. Yeah I think she was. I think she was amazed in you. Yeah I think yeah. Because she was not afforded the opportunity or didn't think she had the opportunity to career. Oh no no. I don't know why I think she didn't think she had choices in our life. I remember vividly Ruth Bader Ginsburg talking talking about her mother. Scream court justice and of course what she has worked to achieve is because she saw her mother who is very smart art right but just the time right society right that her mother didn't have the opportunity to achieve those things. That's right yeah I can relate to that I can totally relate. I always felt like my mother didn't have her own money. She didn't feel like she could buy yourself address. You know yes we did by fabric and make some things.

That's obviously how uncomfortable I am that shape at all sort of how you think about money. Yes yes yes. I think that I knew that I wanted to be independent. I wanted to be able to make the choices I wanted to make. And whether that was by a garment I wanted to buy or go to college. I put myself through school much. My father didn't think that was unnecessary. He your father did not think it was necessarily a Girls go to college. He sat down to say well. It's great that you're going to college but we don't have the money to support you to do that. Did he think you should have a career. He didn't think it was necessary. He said that you're you know get married. One day your husband. We'll support you even after seeing what your mom went through. Yeah Yeah Yeah I I just think that he saw the roles very clear but then fast forward a few decades he comes to New York. Yeah you're starting out. He was blown away your book. And what did he say he said. Oh my God I lean. You know it's money you made last year. I said no he sad and he said two hundred thousand dollars.

Makes it their mission to be better ally. Do it right ally Bank member FDIC, so today story isn't just about a clothing brand that's had a huge influence on fashion and the business of fashion. It's actually a story about overcoming fears and deep personal insecurities because back in the early eighties. Eileen Fisher was extremely introverted and even terrified at the idea of speaking to buyers and customers about her clothes how she overcame that. It's a pretty cool story it I ran in two thousand seventeen and I hope you enjoy it. I was so freaked out the first day, I literally couldn't speak. I just did their people would ask me questions. Like how much does it cost? What's the style number, and I like froze and other people in my booth would help me out say, you know, oh, why don't you come back tomorrow show? I was like a deer in headlights. From NPR how I built this of show about innovators, entrepreneurs idealists and the stories behind the movements. They built. I'm guy rise. And on the show today. How an introverted interior designer got over her stage fright to launch. I lean Fisher a multi-million dollar clothing company for women. So if you know a little bit about the clothing industry, the giants especially for women's apparel are brands like Chanel and verse satchi and Prada, and of course, h Namen Zara. So given that I lean Fisher does about three hundred million dollars a year in revenue it's comparatively small, but in women's fashion, the brand is also incredibly influential and not just for the designs. But how Eileen Fisher started her company to be precise with just three hundred and fifty dollars. She never took a dime from outside investors. And she still owns about sixty percent of her company her employee's own the rest now if you've seen the close you'll know that they're pretty spare and minimalist low key. But also elegant which is sort of how you might describe. I lean Fisher. It's funny because lately I've been kind of calling myself shy extrovert. I think I don't know that I'm wired so much that way. I just think that something I was kind of shut down when I was young, you know, the classroom. I remember there were like sixty kids in my Catholic school classroom, and it was just always safer to to hide and to be small and not speak owing grew up in a middle class family in does Plaines Illinois in the nineteen fifties and sixties she had five sisters and a brother her dad worked as an accountant for a local company in her mom's spent her days at home doing laundry and cleaning and making dinner for all nine of them. I think, but I mostly remember as my mother, you know, her kind of unhappiness, I think it was hard raising seven children. I think she felt it was her job to do all the hard work. And my dad felt you know, his job is to go to work and make the money in her come home and be taken care of after that. So she would pretty much. Kind of we call it ranting and raving all and then my dad would come home and just before my dad would come home. She would get dressed and get the meal ready and sometimes even put on lipstick, and I just remember. I was about sixteen and my mother had a breakdown, and my father said that the next day he was driving to work, and he had to pull over on the side of the road. And he broke down crying realizing that he had thought only a few days before that these were the happiest days of his life. But there were happy. You know, there were a lot of happy moments. Yeah. We played the kids played, you know, we had the neighborhood suburbs and bicycles and we'd play kick the can at night and the good humor truck came down the street, and we got ice cream things like that. So you know, it was pretty much. Your typical suburban experience. I think I lean what after college at the university of Illinois in the late nineteen sixties without any real idea of what she wanted to do. She started out as a math major, but eventually she decided on interior design. I just love fabric and color and playing with the shapes and back to my mom for second. I had sewed with my mother when I was younger. So that was some my happy memories. With my mother. I used to have these pictures in my mind close I wanted to wear we would go shopping and I loved being the fabric store that was one of my favorite places to be in her early twenty. I lean moved to New York with a friend, but with no real plan. Now, this was nineteen seventy two when you could actually find an apartment in Manhattan for a hundred bucks a month. So to pay rent, I lean started doing some freelance graphic design gigs, and eventually she got a job working with a Japanese graphic designer named ROY you she Mora. Yeah. I was in assistant. So I started just doing whatever needed to be done and we designed logos. And we designed packages things for banks. And then we did stuff for Japanese clients, Kirin beer and things like that. And after a short while we were like working together. And you know, we ended up getting into a relationship which was like, no, no. And were you traveling were you did you go to Japan? Right. Right.
