"eric j olsen" Discussed on Journey to $100 Million

"Don't pad your numbers instead mitigate risk. Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin days. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. Hey there, it's Eric J. Olsen early in my career. When I was a young construction project manager. One of the construction project managers told me that I should always had in my numbers and what he meant by that is that if I estimated say I don't know a hundred dollars for something. I should patent my dollars to make it a hundred and ten or a hundred twenty. I should add a little bit of cushion just in case something comes up and I did that for many many years until I actually went through with the project management professional certification also known as p m p and I was taught by them that that is actually not the right way to do it. What you should do instead of just patting your numbers just because and you're not really sure what to because is what you should do instead is take a few moments to think about what Risks are ahead of you. Try to figure out anticipate what could go wrong? And then you can adjust your numbers based on what you think could go wrong. So instead of just saying, oh, I don't know. I'm just going to pad for 10% or 20% or 100% and make something up and you have no idea why you could think hm. Well for this $1,000 item what happens if it arrives one day late, what does that mean for me? What's the cost that and maybe the answers thought bucks. Now you up to $105, but you have a justification. Maybe there's another risk what happens if I drive across town to pick up the part. I'm just making stuff up here and driving across town cost $7. Okay. So now I need to add another $7 on top of the $105 up to $1,012. But the thing is you have the rationale for why that hundred dollars is turning into a hundred and twelve dollars or whatever number it turns out to be you've I do. Defied risk and you've mitigated it by adding more to your budget. Of course, sometimes there are unknown risks that are out there and you should have bought some buffer at a project level or a campaign level at the bottom line just in case but by then you've already addressed a lot of the risks that are pretty obvious need to figure out once you take 5 Seconds to think about it. So when it comes to patent your numbers, whether it's an estimate to a client or an expense or you're going to take on or something like that, I think through all of your different risks and instead of just straight-up patting it by some arbitrary number that means nothing. Think about your risks mitigate those risks one at a time and now will provide very solid justification for why the numbers are what they are do this and your phone numbers will be a lot cleaner. Your estimates will be a lot cleaner and believe me. You will.

"It was gone for a while but company lunch is back. Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin Daisy. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. Hey there, it's Eric J. Olsen for many many years since I started my own agency before array digital. I started taking our staff out to lunch. Once every two weeks I did this because at the time I was experimenting with the staff augmentation model where my employees would go out to client locations and they would work in a a full-time day in and day out and take direction from the client directly what that meant was that I didn't have a real strong sense of Team between me and my employees because they were interacting with a whole another staff day in and day out and I was really only around to like help them with administrative things. So I wanted to make sure that we had an opportunity to get together on a very regular basis which is why I invented company lunch since then we've been going to company lunch once every two weeks. It's almost always on a Thursday and it's just a job. And for us to get together and really just kind of hang out and have lunch on the company. It's been very successful people really enjoy it. But when covid-19 in March, we weren't supposed to be hanging out with other people and so we couldn't get together and have company lunch. But what we decided to do is said during that period of time is we had a virtual company long. So the same time every two weeks we would just grab our food and we would eat over video conference which sounds like a really weird thing to do just watch your co-workers eat, but it was actually pretty cool and we would kind of play games and they were like some themes to each one of the company lunches. Obviously it was bring your own food the company to buy unfortunately, but you know, it was pretty neat and it it actually worked out very well, especially for the employees who don't normally get to participate in company lunch because they work by themselves in some remote location like Miami or in Texas or something like that. And we do have at this point even more employees. You don't work locally than those who do but what we decided or what I realized actually after doing this for many many months was that we actually could get together in person and do a safely if we ate company lunch outdoors and we tried it and everybody felt really good about it waited on a patio and that was about two months ago. And since then we've been holding company launched the way that it was meant to be in person, but outside and everyone feels good about it, and it's been honestly really nice wage. To reconnect with people face-to-face, you know, unfortunately, we don't have that virtual company lunch anymore. So again, the remote folks are probably feeling a little more remote e than before but at least for the local team been really nice to get back together and I really actually missed company lunch. It's just a great time to kind of like let your guard down and recharge, you know, shoot the shit with your co-workers. It just kind of have a good from a company standpoint. It's well worth the small expense. We're talking about a hundred and twenty bucks maybe at the most for a company lunch. It's a minor expense and it's just a great way to build the team up if you do something like that if you normally got together with your team in person and you haven't been able to for the last six seven or eight months because of covid-19. Outdoor locations. It is starting to get a little bit cooler now that it's Autumn, but it's still a great time to be outside. And whenever you can connect with your team how much more successful would you be? If you could harness the experience of a group of successful business owners.

"Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin days. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. Hey there, it's Eric J Olsen. I recently saw a message on one of the groups on a part of where the person asked can anybody recommend easy slash simple web-based meeting agenda software. When I read this question. I was a little confused actually. So this person is focusing on a tool that can hopefully make running meetings easier more effective, maybe even make meetings more enjoyable. And and I really just thought it was kind of like a distraction. I don't think you need tools. I don't think tools can even help you frankly to run a good meeting or to communicate. Well with people, of course, you need the basic tools like video communication or a phone or email in order to even conduct some sort of communication when the person is right next to you and you can do a face-to-face but dead. My opinion is a tools not going to make a meeting effective a tool is not going to help to communicate what it is that you want to communicate to the people in the meeting only good communication and being a pathetic about the topic at hand what people want to say about it having an open dialogue having some structure to the meeting and I guess, you know a tool can help create structure off, but if you're not willing to enforce that structure if you're not willing to actually follow that structure the tool is not going to help you. You know, I think a tool is used as a crutch and I think a lot of times people will focus on the tool instead of focusing on actually communicating. So my response was a new tool is not going to make your meetings better focusing on the tool over the communications is an escape from the real problem cultural problems people being afraid to speak up being apathetic and being dis engaged in my opinion. Just use a simple document. It can be word. It can be a Google doc. It can be a spreadsheet. It can be a text pad. I don't really care. You just need to have some sort of an outline of why it is I'm getting together and the things that you want to cover. If you don't at least have that if you don't have an agenda, then you're just going to have you know, Thirty to Sixty Minute rambling session where you're going to talk about whatever it is at the person with the loudest voice wants to talk about and that's the thing that doesn't make for a great meeting. It may it may make for a great meeting for the person who speaks up the loudest who takes control of the meeting but everyone else they're kind of like waiting for it to be over. That's where an agenda comes in. So the tool that I would suggest is an agenda again either word Google Docs something like that that just suck as here's what we're going to talk about and you go from the top to the bottom and this is especially useful if it's a recurring meeting, you know, when that happens once a week twice a week something like that as analog Ample I have a manager meeting that I hold with the array digital management team every Monday morning and every Thursday morning and we have a Google doc called management team meeting agenda. And if there's something you want to talk about that I tell people in the management team add it to the agenda and add it to the bottom of the list. So what that means is the sooner that you add that agenda item off the sooner it will eventually pop up to the top and we'll talk about it. But if you don't add it, then we're not going to talk about it. So if there's something that's important to you if there's something you want to if there's something you want to bring to life in the company, then the way you do that is you add it to the manager meeting agenda and we will eventually talk about it if it's urgent then we can prioritize it but usually we just letting you know wait till it comes to the top because we have other things to talk about first. For me, that is a great tool. What I don't want is some complex third-party tool with another set of logins for everybody yet. Another subscription that I have to pay for that is just going to frankly kind of get in the way and be a distraction communication is the goal here tools are not how much more successful would be. If you could harness the experience of a group of successful business owners. Well that is the exact group of people that we have in our business growth Mastermind check out more information at a re mentors. Com..

"Eric J. Olsen a couple of times in our past. We have had really good people that have worked for us that just are not really good at the job that they were hired for a job. In the past. What I would do is I would take these people and I would repurpose them into some other kind of job one that I or they thought was a little more fitting for them. I've tried this multiple times and what I found is that it just it never worked and when I say never I I mean and like not a single time in the history of me being a business owner has repurposing someone worked out for them or for us. It's a really easy thing to do to try to repurpose someone bought a new role and it's a it's a nice thing to do and it's something that they want but it just doesn't work out. So what I really concluded and and also Kevin is concluded this because we've tried it a few times is that we hire someone for a particular purpose and if they don't work out in that role then there's probably just not going to be a fit for them in the company even if they are a cultural fit. So it's it's weird because we hire first and foremost for a cultural fit. And you know I say that because it's the right thing to say, but the truth is frankly. We don't so I'm just going to reverse it. The reality is we interview first for a skilled jobs that fit and they have to have the skills. And then secondarily they have to be a cultural fit. Now. I know the right politically correct thing to say is just the opposite we hire for culture and then we figure out the person's going to do but we just don't do that here. I'm sure some companies do I'm sure if you're a monster company, you can just hire people because they're cool whatever they fit in and then you can find some job for them because you got a million a film that's that's not the case here, you know, we're a small business. We only have 14 people working for us and we're only hiring one or two people that are given time. I can't just invent some job because some of the cultural life so first and foremost, we have a need when it comes to hiring someone but very particular skill set that we're looking for and the person has to satisfy their skill set and then home Generally, they have to be a cultural fit and the cultural fit is the one that's honestly very difficult to figure out now Kevin and now we have a Founders interview and we trying to make sure the person is going to be a cultural fit. But first, of course they have to be a skill set that and then a cultural fit that's just where we're at right now. You know, I wish I could say it was different but that's not the case. So when someone doesn't usually get into that role because they're a cultural fit and we thought they had a skill set that and then they don't have that skillset. It's very hard for us to repurpose them because we don't have the position probably but also just our history has shown us that it doesn't work out even when we tried to invent a job for them or even if we have a job opening and then they have part of the skills that they need money, you know, cuz it's almost impossible. Usually that they have or not impossible in probable that they have the actual skill set for this other opening that we have. So it's it's a tough thing. It's a tough job. I'm a you've got a person that's a great person you really like them. You want them to be part of your company, but you don't have an opening for them and they can't do the job that you hire them for you have to let them go. Yeah, I wish there was a better way of doing it and like I said, maybe when we get bigger and maybe when we have a hundred job openings at any given time, then we could repurpose somebody but right now we we found that we have to let him go it never works out to try to reprogram some

"Just because your competitors do it does not mean that you should too. Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin days. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. Hey there, it's Eric J Olsen. One of the arguments that I have every once awhile with other entrepreneurs and even internally here at a Red digital is whether we should do something because competitors do it. So a lot of times there is pressure put on a company to do something because someone else offers that service or someone else is doing something wrong or acting a certain way and there's pressure that's put on you to do the exact same thing. I recently had a client who came to me after a year of paying us by ACH they change their mind and they wanted to pay us by check and they wanted to pay us net 30. Well, we don't accept Net 30 Terms. If someone's going to pay us by check, we give them seven days that's plenty of time because off every single month, you know, it's all inclusive pricing. So every single month, it's the same amount on the same day. Our billing is frankly quite boring. There's not anything to review because you've already agreed to pay that amount on that day of the month. So there's no invoice to review. It's just pay it, but he I got on the phone with him because he insisted on net 30 dead. And what he said in the phone was, you know in in business it's it's customary to give net 30 and I said, well, it may be in general business, but it's just not here like we charge the advanced because we're about to do work for you and we don't have credit on you. I don't have a line of credit in order to do this project. So I don't want to fund this project. I'd rather get paid for it right now so that we have the funding in order to do the work for you. But yeah, I don't have a credit report on you guys. I don't have a promissory note on you. You know, there's a lot of jobs don't have from like a A fiduciary perspective to ensure that I get paid. So I want to get paid upfront. I mean, there's nothing wrong with getting paid upfront you can set whatever terms that you want. Whether it's payment terms or some other way of doing business. It's your proposal to a prospect and then they can either frankly like take it or leave it or you can negotiate but but you should have never feel pressure to do something like as an example of a net 30 or net 45 terms just because quote everybody and quote does it? That's not a good reason. That's not a good reason at all. As a matter of fact when it comes to like you're offering and the service that you give it's really not a good idea to do everything that everyone else does in digital marketing as an example. The bigger clients are looking for Specialists. They don't want a full-service agency that can do direct mail and not boards and TV and SEO and social media and all of the things they're they're not looking for that anymore. They're looking for Specialists if they do TV, they want an agency that focuses on TV package, which is significantly different than search engine optimization as an example. They want Specialists people want Specialists. They want to deal with people in companies that are they specialize in what they need if they need SEO they wanted a company if their lawyers they want to SEO company for lawyers if they want General digital marketing. They don't want to go to the TV station or the newspaper to get digital marketing. They want to give us some who actually has digital marketing. That's our sweet spot. And so we don't want to look like everybody I don't want to do Billboards. I don't want to do radio. I don't want to do TV. I don't want to do print I don't want to do Direct Mail. There's a lot of stuff I don't want to do is to create logos because what I want to do is focus in on the things that we're really good at and get even better at those things. I want to specialize and over-deliver and a few things and then go find people the clients and the prospects that are looking for that exact same thing out of there digital marketing agency. And that's where the magic happens join us every Friday at noon for our dog. Lunchtime alive go to this is a RAID to sign up for notifications..

"Days join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. Hey there, Eric J Olsen, we have worked pretty hard on our processes here at a digital. There really is a process for almost everything and say almost because. Well, we focus on the big things. We don't have a process for the minutia. We Trust our folks to figure out how things need to get done without having to tell them step by step by step how to do every single thing. But for some of the big things like our sales or on boarding of a client or on boarding of an. We do actually have written processes that are pretty detailed actually because we wanna make sure we don't miss step. We also want to make sure that we don't make an assumption that makes us or someone else look stupid as well. That's really kind of the point of process is to make sure that you do something consistently the way that you want to do it every single time. Sometimes process breaks down sometimes it's not even the right process but what is cool about process is that it's your own way of doing things and guess what if you don't like the way that is operating you can change it. So big proponent of always questioning whether the process is right. This is especially true when someone wants to deviate from the process for some reason. Sometimes. When they ask for a deviation, there's a really good reason. Sometimes, it's actually exception but most of the time when people ask for an exception to the process that really should be the norm and you need to really question whether the process that you have in place is the right process or if it should be changed that the exceptions being asked for becomes the norm. So I think that's really important to question your process and if it's not doing exactly what you wanted to do. You have all the power that you need to fix it. All you gotTa do is open up your document wherever written down, update the document and Bingo you're in business. Now actually say Bingo you're in business, but that's really not true and here's why. If, you update your document and you don't tell anyone about it. They're probably going to go off of memory, and if they go off of memory, then they're gonna remember the old process. So you also need to make it very explicit to people by training them what changed. There's a couple of different ways that I've done that in the past. One is when I make the changes to a written process instead of just typing in and I over writing and edit mode what I'll do is I'll turn on Google Docs think it's called a suggested or suggested changes it's like that in Microsoft word as well I believe. Editing suggestion changes. And the reason I do that so that you can see what's been removed and what's been added, what's been changed, and what I'll usually do is take a screen shot of that. Send it off to Evans know about okay. Here's what changed and then I'll just accept all the changes right away. So I don't wait for them to like acknowledge that they understand what the changes are I notify them then it's up to them to actually. Take some action on that notification. Another way that I've done, it is to create a very short video. So if you're listening to this, I'm also recording this as a video and I would do something very similar to this. I'm Ashley Records Right now and a tool called video card, which is a VCR Dot, com V. I D. Y. A. R. D. DOT COM. So in video art is browser based and I can record video and then I can send someone a link or if I want I can even download the video and send them video, but a link is better. Send him link and I'll explain exactly what changed. I can even show them in the vineyard video that document and how has changed and I can highlight things as I talk through it. So that's another really good way to make sure that people are aware of the changes. So make the change the document if you don't like it and then train your folks if you do that consistently and you always question these exceptions. You will get better and tighter process and it will get better but only if you are willing to make the change.

"So this situation with him. I just remembered trying harder became like a golden retriever. That would just like, oh, you don't like me. I'm going to figure out why. And I'm just gonna keep trying and so trying way to harbor he was giving someone his number that was new in town. And he was like, you know, my girlfriend, and I like, we should all hang out. And I was like, oh, should I should we hang out to we all hang out together? So we can get to know each other. And he was like, yeah. I guess I was like oh gosh. What do I do? And so I feel like I've always been that person. Who's like overly nice or overly trying to figure out like it's impossible that you're like really mean person that you hate me. There has to be something else. Right in that situation. It just came down to like one simple thing is that he he was really upset about his friend who got fired and for me. And that's a tradition. It wasn't really about me. And so the moment, he apologize. I was like oh it had nothing to do with me. It was more about him. And his thing with this girl. Has there been situations in my career where people have looked at me? And judge me, and it's felt awful in a key. And yeah, that's been my whole life. And it does feel key in weird. And, but I don't know like I think the way that I always handle it was just by just be really nice. That's like the puzzle solving skill set that we've been socialist towards that was anymore. No. But that was when I was young when I was like then. Now, I'm I, you know, I don't know. There was something that shifted a lot kick me. No. Stap? I only knew you from house bunny in I remember you being so strong. I remember like you being kinda the strongest one, and I don't mean to qualify that kind of like you were thank you. I appreciate that. And I I feel like that's sort of right after when I had a big shift though, I grew up in in the south. And my dad was a pastor, and I grew up in church my whole life. But like, I guess like Jesus camphor shown of church, it was pretty intense. And so for a long time, it it was sort of this thing where the world was like world of ups elites and then one day I woke up and was like. Asking a million questions in wire things, you know, the way that they are sort of did a one eighty in my life. And I think I just it was it was almost like the polar opposite. I just heard standing up for myself in a very extreme way. Right. Like, my brother was like, hey, I'm coming in on the train of from. He was like, he's a marine stationed somewhere. And he's like I'm coming on the train tonight. You can drive a pick me up at like ten o'clock at night. And I was like how dare you asked me to ten o'clock at night picking fights. It was just picking everyone. And so I had this shift, and then I came somewhere back to like a middle ground where I was still the core of who I was. But then also able to stand up for myself. So that when we met, and we had started dating. And then if you I like immediately would call him out and be like, you're not allowed to fight this way. And we need to figure out how to communicate in different way. And it was great and. I was like twenty three. So is about that time. I think we're I was somewhere. I had found my middle. No, no. No, no. It's it's important. And it's. Disgusting. I don't know what they're doing over there. They're really cute. They're watching cocoa. They're doing coke. Yep. Yes. We do one super-quick improper fogy calls him. Sorry. Okay. So you guys are attending the premiere of aquaman. For this is going to be a lot of acting because I would never. You can't drag me to my own movie. I could barely get him to come to any work event. You guys are attending the ear of aqua. Are we ourselves? Who are we? Yes. Oh. Ourselves..

"I remember the member the woman that I met on the hot chick. And I remember thinking like you were such an interesting intelligent complex, kind of wonderful human being. And then I haven't seen you in forever. And I hope that I've listened to the podcast. And I think it's a really interesting format to explored life and relationships and feelings and. Thank you. I never I feel. I remember feeling the same thing about you. We had I remember sitting on a sidewalk or something. And we had like a really interesting conversation about why don't know probably fucking graph service or something super interesting than. I was really grateful for your presence because you always felt very solid in the sort of world of insecurity. It was nice to have like a sense of stability. So thank you. Eric those really nice moment. Thank you. I know. And then I backed away from it because it's real tough for all of us to to what just happened, by the way, some things happen. We'll know because she she said she said, I love you. I love you back. And I said I haven't seen you in ten years, and then felt the need to explain like what that really meant to sleep like the koala. The you say we went from like, you're attacking Eric. Now, you're both are best friends and no love each other to either joking attacking to like didn't you explained defendant? I'm just happy that all of us are back together. Here's the truth. I'm just happy that all back into it. Here's the crazy thing about this business is that we are Turnley in summer camp. That's true. So when I'm sure you've had this conversation. On the podcast where you go off and do a movie for three months, and it is the best version of summer camp that you've ever had and you make these relationships that almost feel in retrospect in authentic because so much time has passed between when you didn't like I've done movies with people where for those three months. It was such a dynamic and explosive friendship or relationship. And then you lose people because we all you were a hundred hours a week and you've got a kid, and you've got a two month old. And so we lose track of what you talked about earlier is that we tend to paint our histories into just good or bad. And so it's tough to navigate relationships or how you felt about somebody that you haven't seen in six years. But you're right, though, that honest communication. Well, you're right about everything which is save very begrudgingly at this point worth. How don't you fucking do this shit to me? This is my puck in pot. Sorry. I know keep forgetting she's a she's the Princess from frozen. She's just got a whole new. Learn english. No, no. But I think that it's a it's also a gender idea. And this is my default. But the idea that terrified of the next job when you're getting older like I had that when I was young. I remember rob like coming out. I read with him for the joke, and my parents were waiting in the car, and I went down on the car, and he came out, and he was like just want to tell you that. I got the job that you got the job. Of course, he. But and I remember feeling happy. But also the pressure to feel more exhilerated I was excited. But I felt the that just and I think it's it's a little bit of socialization of female who's the idea few through sales. Yep. See it's there. Do you know what I'm saying? I do know what you're saying. But how do you deal is that idea like larger idea of being a woman in this industry? And like the idea that Eric made the assumption that you weren't going to be funny. Well at that point. I think it was twenty one or twenty two years old right something like that. And at that point. I was pretty new to the business only done one show. And then I had went in auditioned for this and got it and was so excited to be doing it. So I wasn't I came from a world the modeling world before that. And I hated it. So so so much in the way that you were treated that anything other than that felt like way better than being in the modeling world..

It was like a veg, ladies, and we were all like we need to go in order. I'm joking talking totally sexist in awful. Appreciate that. Okay. That comment comment. Have you seen American made? Have you seen her Tom Cruise in American minute? Yes. I knew you were asking me. But yes, and. Yeah. Talk about strength like that character. She plays the wife to Tom Cruise and she crushes she so good. And she drives those scenes, and you can just it's it's the closest thing she's played to herself, which is just this really grounded center. That's it's it's it's crazy. I feel so embarrassed only.

"So it wasn't. It wasn't about looks. It was never it wasn't a choice about no. No means is he thought that I-. He'd never seen me do anything before. I had acted another show. He'd never seen it. And so I'm no, no, that's that's such a fucking dominating. Knowing thing to do. But I will say that your husband has been kind of a dick sometime judgmental. This is a perfect example of remember that about you on the hot chick being judgmental and snobby. Yeah, he's judgmental. But he's he's confident when he's a very confident I've saying by God what we play beer pong together. Back in the Denver area. I met him. I by the way. I mean, I think there's a fine line between mental and full disclosure. You're gonna hate me for this. But I don't fucking care earlier. While sim was bragging about knowing you before I knew you which felt like an odd competition when we had other shit to do. He said, you know, Eric sees got a healthy ego. I didn't end one hundred percent I will. What the fuck isn't that the Pokka ghetto block or? Sure. But I think that let's go back to the beer punk stories. No, how long do our celebrity friends sim. But let's get back to the story with. So we left off. I mean, a sweeping generalization that they had hired this girl because she was stunning. And not because she was comedic talented and at the first table read, she knocked it out of the park and no one laugh more than me. And then I came up and said to her, quote, I am so sorry, I chew based on the way that you look, I should never have been mean to you. And I'm a big giant jerk. So there's one thing about being cocky, and then there's another thing about being able to make the pivot how shit, but that is amazing. And he goes in your amazing amazing. And I'm sorry during the so wrong, and I'm so happy that you're here. And I was like Hank you because before the table read, I called my mom, and I was like there's guys show that hates me hates me. And I don't know why. And then after the tape where it was like really that. Because she was so talented and so funny. And that's when I started falling in love. Well, don't you think that there's that juxtaposition was of people? Sometimes it's like, I am that I am a tractive to you. When I wanna be I don't think that was it. I I literally was like I wanted this project to be the best version of it. And this is and this is one day had hired. I think they had done it like a couple times. Show and they ruined a pilot. They hire somebody that somebody's like, oh, my gosh, you have to hire. So. And so and then that person like does has never done multi camera comedy before or like. Yeah. In with the house bunny? Like, I I wasn't able to win too many battles. But one was they they wanted somebody like supermodel e for my love interest. And I was like I don't think that's gonna we have such a tiny amount of time for I didn't wanna. Yeah. And it was like, I didn't even wanna love story. But I don't know. I guess America. But so I so when call in Hank's who's handsome, but brigade I just didn't want it to be like her journey is attracted she's attracted to like some Mike Josh Timmel like they want to mill. Wants him. So here I hear what you're saying about like just having league beauty at and but in but Sarah's as you, of course. So then you fell in love. I was wrong. Yeah. Fully apologize that you did it. And then we started this beautiful friendship. So you guys did the show together. You were honest with her that must've been attractive berry. And then what happens will you like wanna go out? No, I was I had amazing girlfriend at the time who sinned you both know, and I was married. So we were friends for a long time like a year. I think before we ever I was divorced by the time that we got together he and his girlfriend had split in that summer, we go should we want to date, and we did thirteen years ago?.

"And then that's conveyed through your is like sometimes you like, I agree with you. But you're like the Cheshire cat. There you go. I like that. Yeah. I don't want Eric. She's a really good active listener. So she just wears her whole feelings on her face. He's a total gesture cat and look at her like during your stories. She was like you're going someplace that was good good. Is she gonna pull it out of me? Threat that was. Forty two years later. We're feeling much better about the house bunny. So we how did you guys meet? I remember Eric you telling me at some like stupid Hollywood party that you have met, Sarah. And that you guys were crazy in love and one year was that I feel that was probably Adam said their Christmas party 'cause I've been to three hundred parties in the last ten years there must have been. Yeah. So there was like thirty of us. Yeah. We met on this TV show called the loop and tell the story in his plans, not as we romantics north. So the injust fired Becky Newton who's incredibly talented, Becky Newton. The actress the biggest shit talkers town fucking love it. But wait for it. Becky who went onto. We're gonna hang out more. It's all gonna make sense in about thirteen seconds. So Becky Newton who went on to be one of the stars of ugly, Betty, who's incredibly talented actress was on a show with me called the loop. And FOX didn't know what to do. So they got rid of her and they hired Sarah. And they hired this other girl, Amanda, and I sat there with Becky while she was crying her eyes out from being fired from a pilot for no good reason. Can we reenact this? You wanna be Becky go for it was sort of fun. No, no, wait, you ever been fired from a job I've been fired from three to it doesn't feel good. I've never been fired. So I can't even. Empathy for journey. Becky sorry. Go on sorry L. So it's heartbreaking. It's a heartbreaking feeling because a lot of times. It's already shot something, and they go we're going to replace. You means that whatever you've done is. So we're not agreeing with that rep to find somebody else to do it again. So she's heartbreaking. I'm connecting with that horrible experience. And they bring in Heidi Klum, girl. And I was like, yo we're on FOX. We're on a comedy. She has to be funny. This is not the OC where they can hire. Yes. Super this is fully this is this is me at sign. She can have my babies. That's on. That's how that tracked. So they they brought him this supermodel, and I was so sad one for Becky, but too because they brought in her and during the photo shoot. I as well was that like the moment you're like God. God damnit that's beautiful. But. She she can be funny. That's that's my tears. You said you were sad. I was sad for Becky. I was sad that Becky the job. You're like fuck. Yeah. No come on. Actively was not. The reason why he is telling part of the story is because if I tell the story it sounds mean because he was mean, I was cold. I was actively cold to the fact they hired a supermodel becky's very attractive by. Talented, beautiful actress..
