"I eventually came back by the way at this time. You're raising three children. What was going on at home during all this well. You know it's interesting. I left banking. Because i was traveling. Forty eight weeks outta the year. Leaving sunday night coming back on friday and i said to my wife who i loved dearly. I said this is just no way. I can be a dad and do this. So building a business in new york. I can work twelve hours a day. But i could see my kids for breakfast and see them at home at night and that's kind of what i did and i see them every day. Your kids shop go to the grocery store or kids. Don't go into stores in fact if my wife goes into whole foods. My kids are like dad. Mom went to whole foods. You told me not to tell you. That's great So yeah our family does not go grocery shopping. But i'm in stores every week because you're in retail. I'm but the relationship with food around where food comes from could be. you know. it's important to teach kids. This leadership was not the most constant In these years it seems so joe ran the he was the ceo for the first. Let's see he left in two thousand four so he ran the business for the first verse year of opening. And then where is he in the world now. I do not know you know when we started the business. I built a lot of the technology. And the you know facility operations and joe was the guy and we split up the responsibilities and we ended up Parting ways But i was probably thirty three at the time. And and while i understand every gut to the business and having been investment banker I i wasn't exactly saying hey. I'm qualified to be a ceo. And i'm very much an open book person. So i really wanted other people to come in that i could kind of learn from. I knew our business but actually running a company with something that it wasn't something i've done before so over the course of the next bunch of years we've had several people come into the business who took on the ceo role. And i played a very serious epsom. President of two chief financial officer and operations and so forth And then you know five. Six years ago eventually then took on the full-time ceo role and and no longer brought in those Those people feel like god. I wish i had done that sooner. I just wish. I had more confidence in myself. In retrospect you can always say that and there's been a lot of people in encourage me to do that but you know i'm a. I'm very cautious about You know what. I know what i don't know and i think i've always been more of a student in life and i've always enjoyed learning from other people. I think now i feel like i'm. I'm so far ahead of where i was back then in terms of understanding leadership in the executive position. You mentioned that your you know your student in life. What were you like actually as a student growing up in new jersey. how would people. How would your friends or are your parents kinda describe you Very kind of in my head and so thinking through problems. I would sit for days trying to work out and build models or other types of things. I was a musician. I was an artist but actually in college all actually really wanted to do was be escaped structure in play my guitar in vail colorado. So i had. I had gotten to Gotten my canadians Ski certificate as a scheme structured a certain level so i can go right to teaching adults in as far as i was concerned when i was about nine hundred gonna teach skiing now you went to be. You went to boston university. Yeah when did that treatment. And louis kinda said Guitar in a ski shop or investment in banking and it was literally almost a coin. Toss and i landed up. I figured you know what if i go back and make a little bit of money. I can always play my qatar. If i play my guitar in a in a bar in colorado i may never leave. So we're gonna go banking.

"And so he had been involved probably hundred acquisitions and a lot of actually were in the supermarket sector and You know we had been talking about this concept. I brought initially. He was skeptical. But after the work we put into it He felt it was very interesting. Baton and i had to make a pitch like any other investor to them you spend the majority of the one hundred million on building this very state of the art plant and then what happens and then we hit the go button and then we had four customers. It was the world's biggest dago. A nerve wracking because you spend all this money and you have all this anticipation then you turn it on. And what we did is we. We went to roosevelt island. I and we we. We built these fruits and vegetables. Eight-foot rubber costumes and we. We dressed up a bunch of people and we put onto the islands. And we've jumped around and said here's fifty dollars free food and fresh food. You didn't give away Bottled water just fruits and vegetables. And we we scared a lot of children and We but we got it known and quickly We got some traction in the marketplace and was a lot of learns very small at that time but we learned how to kind of reach some customers really was like as grassroots as year dressing up in a fruit of the loom thing block so and why roosevelt island. I feel like the only way i know to get. There is the tram. I mean i i know that's kind of close to long island city. Two reasons one is It was actually close to our building because we're in long island city and I love rhode island but honestly if we really messed up. I don't think anyone was gonna know about it and so it was kind of an opportunity for us to to do it and if we made mistakes without you know new york really talking too much about it. How did words spread. How did the word get out. Because i don't remember. You're spending a lot on advertising or maybe you did know we we actually did. We had a a really simple idea. We already spent all our money building the facility so we had no money left for marketing But we had really two strategies one is we said look we really believe that if people experience the product they're gonna love it and so we said rather than spending a lot of advertising dollars we're gonna give away the food. We had a fifty dollar free food offer and one hundred dollars free food offer. We're literally you get one hundred dollars of free food and you don't have to spend any money this free delivery and it was so outrageous when people did it like wait a minute. I just got one hundred bucks of stakes and lobsters and all this stuff and you would tell your friend because it was so outrageous and so we really relied on this kind of wow factor on such a large offer but it was the product that we got into people's hands and that's that's really how we built it and we did block-by-block. We made a lot of mistakes along the way. But we We we built sixty million dollars of revenue first year than we did one hundred twenty million or second year that one hundred eighty million or thirty years so it actually was building a very fast. Was there sort of a pivot moment in the press. That helps to get more demand shocking. The press was very difficult with us. You know. I think in the in the early days when new york city was ruled by the great classic retailers of new york fairway and other players And the new york times had some great Food writers building an online food business. The food writers really didn't believe that great food and online could be together and it took a very long time for the food writing community to take us seriously because it was very against the grain of how they wanted to think about this and so it was not an easy road convincing those writers to take serious. What about operationally where things that you needed to tweak more than tweak it was. It was quite a quite an experience about learning about the customer. So i would say the hardest thing for us is that was actually human capital so we required about five hundred new people a year to keep up with the growth and we did a very bad job of training and on boarding and human resource management and with over one hundred percent turnover. We actually had to hire like twelve hundred people every year. How about what is it. Six hundred thousand dollars in parking tickets for is that true. That's a very low number. We get a lot of parking tickets. Still still new. York city relies very very heavily on parking. Tickets says of major source of revenue for new york city. Just going back to the the hiring. You had an immigration audit in the early days where you lost two hundred workers or so who are undocumented. Was that part of kind of the growing pains of the hr Human capital issue. Going back you know back in the early two thousands there wasn't a big database government database. You can kind of check so we would bring in people and we would get their cars and they give us their cards. And we'd fill out the paperwork But we didn't realize that a lot of cars are actually fake cards not real cards And and some of the most wonderful incredible people we had whole families who work with us and that event happened and we gathered. Everyone's together like look immigration. Says that they're gonna come to an audit what we need everyone to do is bring back in their carts. We want to validate all the paper. Make sure because god forbid they come in and the paper works not right. you know. We don't want anyone to get in trouble and literally the next day. Several hundred people didn't show up for work. There was some public acrimony with your co founder. Joe he had a rather public feud with his former partner fairway. I'll leave it at that. But you know you're in a market with sharp elbows. I mean it wasn't just fairway. Who was threatened by your presence but even gristiti's and supermarkets are very low margin business. I think especially in new york city. It is fierce. How how did that play out. Can you give some examples of that. I'd be very cautious to give you the real stories because it is a down and dirty business. I think a lot of players in new york were very uninterested in freshdirect being part of the the food group in new york and through mechanisms on the supply side and otherwise. There's a lot of behind the scenes pressure for us not to be in business and the other color you could give to that. Well look. I think that most stores will will attempt to kind of threaten to not you know. Carry your product if you supply other players and there was a lot of people threatens to to not want to sell to us because if they did they lose their existing relationships producers who were threatened by the existing incumbents said that. Maybe we shouldn't sell to you. Because i lose my shelf. Space at this traditional retailer. You're not and they are so they felt wrestling. We had a lot of that pressure. You're kind of swimming with two bathing suits in that. You know in the early days not only. Were you launching this new company but it was kind of it was a new concept and e commerce was an as mature as it is today So people even are being afraid to like use their credit card online. Like can you talk to me about like those kind of Systematic obstructions well. That's you know we're really dating ourselves with this conversation because it we forget when you go back to the late nineteen ninety s that there were actually the same fears. People were afraid. In fact when i started the business i didn't have an email account and i had my chief. Technology officer facts things to my house and he kind of freaked out. It's like look you're starting commerce company. You're gonna have to kill your facts but we had also ideas because we were nervous. That online was not a comfortable place yet. And so we had ideas on sending dvd's and catalogs to people and so was very much at the very early stage of comfort and we get a lot of calls about credit card security and all sorts of issues like that. And you were in convinced yourself right that bs. You'd be a delivery service. But how committed were you to the online.

The time league restarts up. So it's quite an intriguing game. Obviously there's a lot repetition it because it's the same but it's happened over and over again but sort of like you know you have more information tired. It opens up different dialogue options and stuff like that what he taught to characters but it can't be quite for strategies you know about time to do things and sometimes you have to do things quite quickly. The achievements are quite obscure and most of them if all of them are not story progression. Relay it the for obscure things zych water in what read the flowers that are in the bedroom and stuff like that. It's very weird type of thing that you have to look the achievement. How to complete the ball. Which type awards. I prefer to be fair. It's got some great voice for the cast. So you've got daisy ridley eh. k from star walls. you've got gbs. Mcevoy freshdirect himself. And william defoe so you know. The great voice acted in that trump. You're quite an all-star cast that really probably it probably won't take him all the hours to complete while she got used to the story. But what i did feel was it felt a big lychee because i would you know obviously was monitoring what people were saying had disease one day after the first cycle. You supposed to hear about this man's looking for pocket watch out for me never set by cycle.

So it's a bit bookie on pay say at least so it was about that But overall it's not a bad game..
"freshdirect" Discussed on The Book Review
"Are critics jennifer lie and dwight garner. Join us now to talk about what they are reading and reviewing. Hey guys tim. hi pamela. john. Let's start with you. What did you write about recently. So i reviewed a book called until proven safe. The history and future of quarantine by jeff may not nikola totally. It's one of those books you can tell by the title that it just sounds ultra timely as if they wrote it in response to the last year and a half but actually one of the very interesting things about this very interesting and somewhat. Strange book is that they started researching it years ago. So obviously cove in nineteen comes into play when they talk about pandemics but what they do is they actually take a really expensive. Look at what quarantine is and they go through. Its history. how i traditional corentin started in gibraltar neck as well as famous places where trade took place during the black death and so that was an era when strangers were coming into contact with each other and so the idea of quarantining individuals weren't necessarily sick but were maybe sick became something of a practice and so they look at the history of corn corentin. You know what they emphasize is that we understand it and terms. I think we use it often interchangeably with the idea of isolation so isolating people who are actually sick. But what they say. Central to the idea of quarantine is uncertainty. We don't know exactly what's happening with somebody that they might have something dangerous inside of them and so we have to keep them safe and keep the rest of the population safe. Their big argument is that with scientific and medical developments. That you would think in some ways that quarantine is this medieval outdated technology from the past. But what they're saying is actually it's going to be more and more important because modern life on the one hand we can diagnose people in theory at least more efficiently when it comes to certain diseases but on the other hand you know it really also brings people into contact with each other. I mean plane. Travel is a huge factor for infection as we know and so it's going to become more important they say and so they at it from the perspective of disease they look at it from the perspective of agricultural pests and they also look at philosophically and what they point out as the title suggests. Is that our idea of quarantine actually really goes against especially in the united states. I think a lot of values that we often hold dear such as the idea of innocent until proven guilty. So corentin is a system that basically says somebody is unsafe until they're proven safe and so it's the kind of power that should be used judiciously. It should be used compassionately because historically it's also been abused. This is a really serious topic. But i have to say from their author photos these two authors. There's like a photo of the two of them in of early plague gear. Right her happens. They have a fun approach to their subject. I don't know it's interesting. So that photo. Actually i think it's only one of them. Who's in the pga gear. The other person who's in the medieval black death gear us. That's what i liked is one of the scholars that they met. I think you know several years ago so this was before cove in nineteen. I feel like that's another thing where i think. At the time that they were working on their subject was not necessarily something that people had in mind so when they went to places like italy where there's a long history of quarantine they met with people who really understand the past and how it worked and so this play gear is something. Actually that's become a bit of a corrector. I think that you know when we see it looks both comical as well as menacing. But the thing about actually the medieval play gear. Something i didn't know was that in that long beak. If you can picture it was often it's terrifying. But they would stuff things like herbs and garlic and that was supposed to protect them from infectious disease and at the time they didn't really know they thought that infectious disease is spread by miasma some of these herbs. Things like garlic. I mean those actually did have antibacterial properties so they contrast it with the pga gear. But the thing about p. e. which is something that's supposed to protect medical personnel from infectious. People is that it's extremely onerous to put on and as we learned within the last year and a half the supplies for it aren't necessarily always easily procured when there's a pandemic that affects entire world. I don't know if their approach to their subject is comical but they really point out. I think a lot of interesting arcane details that we wouldn't necessarily think about so. Was it a fun book at all. Well i will say that. I learned a lot and i give them a lot of credit as writers. They really wanted to take really big approach to their subjects so he runs and architectural and technology blog and she is the co host of a podcast about food and science and history. So i think they have a really wide range of interests because of that they approached the subject as something that should be looked at expensively. And i think in that sense it is fascinating. I mean it's not like a dry specialists book really journey across the world and you see them meeting with people looking at historical sites. They talk about space travel because quarantining things before they go into space is a big deal as well as quarantining things are brought back from space. They talk about this idea of a celestial pandemic which is something that people were very afraid of with lunar missions. Are we still afraid of that. Do we still think that that is a real possibility that is seems to be less of an issue is the fear that we're actually going to set off something by going into space without properly sterilized equipment. I mean i think when yulon musk he sent with its spacex. Like unsterilized tesla into space debate. I think those are things that people do worry about. Those are things that scientists worry about but at the same time you know a lot of it is unknown and the thing about quarantine that's really tricky is because it has to do with unknowns often times in retrospect it looks like total over-reaction and as i said in the past because it is trying to i'm thinking about you know spraying like things onto freshdirect deliveries of food in those early days. That's exactly it. I mean we didn't know. I was leaving male outside for like twenty four hours bringing it in. Because you know we didn't necessarily know how the krone virus was spread. And so what they say is that we have to think of a way of approaching quarantine that is smart that also builds trust because it only works when there's trust because again historically the power has been abused too often marginalize already marginalized populations in the name of disease control so they look at this very serious issue but they also bring into little bits of history little bits of philosophy as i said little bits of space travel so it's completely fascinated..

Well, we're not energy independent anymore. Paying a buck and a quarter more gallons of gasoline. Tell me where he's successful. I can run off all of Donald Trump's success is we did it many times during his presidency. And you know, he built the wall. He made us energy independent. He got rid of more regulations. And you know the last you know, 20 presidents combined. He lowered taxes as he promised he he used the list of for for putting judges on the bench that he said he would use. You know he he got tough and he got freer and fairer trade deals, even got a freer and fairer trade deal with China that nobody thought he could get. We don't have any problems with Putin and his geopolitical ambitions. Now he's on the border again with Ukraine. What's going to happen there? Here we go again. Crimea Here we come. You know is what's Joe going to do if if China takes over Taiwan? What are you gonna do, Joe? As president, she said. He's going to blow your military. Basis to little bits and pieces. And says that he'll unleash 1.5 billion Chinese on any enemy. That was right. That was directed right at you, Joe. Maybe somebody can interpret this incentive to Joe. It's that there's nothing now that is going on as we now have three months, three record record. Biden price increases. You know if you look, for example, the Labor Department And producer producer prices spiked to the highest pace on record. According to the Labor Department. In April was up 6.2% on an annual basis, the highest jump ever recorded at that time. And may beat it. It was 6.6%, the highest jump recorded at that time and now in June at 7.3%, the new highest jump ever recorded. In this time. And and Biden is rallying Democrats. We're going to get this done and what happens who whose agenda is this anyway? You know, human infrastructure, You know, you talk about infrastructure, roads, bridges, et cetera. Human infrastructure free daycare, human infrastructure, free college human infrastructure, college loan forgiveness. Human infrastructure pay more for energy, human infrastructure down payment on all the green New Deal madness. You know, you got to understand something when price of of energy goes up liberals like it. At one point, I don't remember exactly when Obama even said it publicly. And then you know, had to back away from it. Because then then then they think. Oh, now we get our chance to go for alternative energy. I'm in all of the above guy. Let me be very clear to You come up with cheaper energy, the lifeblood of the world's economy. Now you're stupid Windmills, which you know the Kennedys didn't want outside their beautiful compound. Yeah, when you get When you get to the point Where You have a cheap energy. That can drive our economy. You discover that energy you're gonna be a multi multi multi trillionaire for crying out loud. I mean, you know, it was a very interesting book I read. I love Invention there used to be and I used to go to what's called the Invention convention. And I did this for years. I used to go and they come up with some cockamamie ideas, then some brilliant ideas and then the idea is that you say why didn't I think of that? Just happen to have a friend that once was seriously the inventor of the year, he found a way at a very high heat level to coat the inside of of of the internal combustion engine. And I mean, it's an amazing technology used by a lot of big manufacturers, all the names that you would know. Mercedes Ford Caterpillar, etcetera stuff like that, By the way, uh, intellectual property theft lot of his patents stolen by the Communist Chinese different story for a different day. And I go to this invention convention. There was one guy wrote a book from Louisiana. Remember reading this guy's book, and he talked about that There's literally Electro energy in the air all around us. And if we ever find a way to tap into it, it's free energy for the world, which, if we ever were able to if that was true, I have no I'm not a scientist. I'm not an inventor. If that were true. Be transformative night. You're always going to have people that would potentially use it for evil and nefarious reasons. But come up with the new idea that's clean, Cheap energy. Good luck. I'll be.

"freshdirect" Discussed on Freakonomics
"Rent smith a newfoundland native spent his youth fishing and fighting now. He's an ocean farmer in connecticut primarily growing kelp and he runs nonprofit called green wave trying to attract other people to what is called regenerative ocean farming. His book is called eat like a fish. My adventures farming the ocean to fight climate change in his view. Kelp is something of a wonder crop. Consumers don't necessarily see it that way at least not if they're expected to eat it so reading your book you write about sea greens primarily kelp but many others as if they are the next thing thirty here and you've got this motto. Kelp is the new kale and it really feels like the revolution is underway. But in all the places that i shop whether it's grocery stores or online like freshdirect even in farmers markets i'm not seeing it as a primary ingredient. So why not. And what's it gonna take for that to happen. I was totally wrong. Kelp is not the new kale early on. We were doing kelp cocktail events in new york. And these incredible chefs. Who are able to do. Amazing stuff. like barbecue. Kelp noodles with parsnips and breadcrumbs. But it really stuck in the boutique and so it hasn't broken in that way is broken in as an ingredient in plant based burgers replacements. Her bouillon cubes things like that woven into these other industries. The reason you don't see it in stores is that it's so unapproachable because you has to be dried in order to be shelf stable if you just have it out of the farmer's market it's going to wilt but we've broken to the other side i think once we understood. It's not gonna be boutique in the climate change. Everyone needs to think way way. Bigger beyond community gardens beyond farmers markets and really. Have you know thinking scale. So if i'm hearing you ray. It sounds like the scale. Ability option for kelp as an edible is as a food ingredient. Not on its own but that even as an ingredient. The potential is huge. Yes yes exactly. Did you feel like. In retrospect you wasted time by getting seduced by the boutique appeal. We had to do it because kelps disgusting. We had to get people to eat it right. So when i hear you describe all the purposes of seaweed from an ingredient in foods to eating on its own to bioplastics fertilizer. It sounds like you know the story of the sea. And if i say that to you you probably bristle a little bit. You don't like soy beans so much as a crop do you. Soya's an even worse brand name than agriculture. Because why i mean. It's associated with massive monoculture tearing down rainforest pesticide use it's like the example of global agribusiness. That is impacting the climate in a negative way but there are some similarities by meta soya historian. At this event this people go to school for everything but he taught me something really important which in the forties and then into the fifties soy started trying to get americans soy and they came to the conclusion never going to happen so they said. Let's put it in everything. Let's we've it through all these industries and now soy is absolutely everywhere and so we can do that. With kelp and other seaweeds we can weave it into existing industries and have a really positive effect we turn into fertilizer and compost and if the kelp is got a lot of bio fouling on it. That's really good for the land as farmer because it's packed full of these micronutrients and nitrogen carbon and then we do bioplastics. There's some great companies creating packaging straws than they're all compostable and then the last income stream we see is luke carbon and nitrogen so blue carbon and nitrogen. You need to explain that. It's basically basically you're doing pollution remediation. Yes yeah so. The natural forest pullout carbon this huge carbon sink. It always has been so that has value but the markets don't recognize it and so as farmers were able to grow it and then if we're able to track that carbon and it's sequestered in the soils that carbon credit goes to the farmer. How do you get paid for that. Blue carbon in general carbon credits and offsets is gold rush around it. There's not much rigor and tracking and really knowing the true content of harman's a huge challenge. So what we're doing. Is we take the cal. A percentage that we know goes into fertilizer and compost to a certified lambasts farm. That knows how to take that and capture the carbon in their soil and then that offset. We'll go to greenway the ocean farmer and we've got buyers everybody from shop fi to adidas everybody's hungry for offsets. We won't have trouble selling them. It's just a matter really making sure there's rigorous standard around it so on the kelp grown for pollution remediation to absorb all this carbon and nitrogen. Can you double dip on that. In other words it does all that and then you sell it for something else. Well you need to split carbon between avoided carbon and draw down avoided. Carbon is someone needs kelp as opposed to kale right. So they're not drawing down carbon but you're reducing the amount of carbon output of other industries. then there's drawdown which is taking carbon out and storing it for hundreds thousands of years right. I often get asked if it's possible to farm in urban areas. The answer is yes and we're already doing it. We call it pollution farming purposefully citing farms not for food production but for bio remediation would scientists call ecosystem services near metropolitan areas. The goal is to leverage the power of shellfish seaweeds to filter water and soak up carbon nitrogen and heavy metals all the while rebuilding reef systems. An example is doctor. Arish is groundbreaking work in new york where he set up kelp and shellfish farm in the bronx river to pull nitrogen mercury and other pollutants out of the city's waterways. I can only imagine how hard it would be to market seaweed grown at the tip hunts point but these results show that some urban farms crops will be food grade others will be suitable as fertilizer feeds and the really nasty stuff can be turned into biofuel so at a certain point you became famous for doing what you're doing and you became a media sensation. You really enjoy that period of your life. Yes it drove me off the water. I felt increasingly alienated. When my wife just made fun of me insulted me regular. We'd have a fight and she'd be like. I thought i married an oyster man. Not some guy that does talks. You were invited to ask. Elizabeth warren a question during a democratic primary town hall in the presidential election. I think we have the tape to play you. This is from brent. smith lives in new haven connecticut. He was a commercial fisherman. Now he works as a shellfish farmer. Brent what's your question brandt my always far was destroyed by two hurricanes now warming waters and acidification are killing seed coast to coast and reducing yields those of us that work on the water. We need climate solutions. Are we need them now. The trouble is is the green new deal only mentions our oceans one time this is despite the fact that our sees soak up more than twenty five percent of the world's carbon..

okay to ask us significant other to delete picks of their ex then we're diving into the Mailbox Stanford your listener questions including one listener grappling with staying friends with her ex and enough you're listening who has questions about pet sharing with an ex but first we want to welcome this week's guest she is the CO founder of Onward Post Breakup concierge service in New York City the service is being talked about by everybody from refinery twenty nine to good morning America please welcome Lindsay Mac welcome to the show thank you I'm so delighted to be here were excited to have you because you know a lot of people they struggle after a break up and you have created an entire concierge service around this problem so tell everybody exactly what is post breakup concierge how much does it cost what does it provide sure download yeah so I think when my best friend and CO founder and I were coming the idea are thought was you know again at sort of coming out of our own breakup wouldn't it be amazing if there was like a ghostbusters for breakup right here's this traumatic transitional life moment where you really need to call in the big the big guns to sort of get yourself you know out and onward so we started thinking about what were the main pain points and leaving a long term relationship and because you know we live in New York City the big points was moving out you know how do you quickly relocate if you're living together with a partner where do you go how do you find housing how do you appear new life you're you know get off all the streaming accounts and all that kind of stuff and sort of start over but then there's of course the second piece after logistics which is holistic finding therapists finding a gym sort of reacclimating yourself to society in a new phase because you might need a new gym if you if you worked l. with your husband or husband boyfriend at the same the same Jim Yeah I mean your husband I guess breakout of do both we do both we do both you know we see the primary folks in our service to be folks leaving breakup not not divorce is a lot of people end up turning their lawyers into their therapist Sierra which is probably a lot more expensive than hiring Lindsey service you probably you are getting through a divorce remember to use your divorce attorney just the logistics yeah yeah use them sparingly and then for for all other issues maybe talked to Lindsey Yeah we're we're a lot more affordable within your divorce attorney you don't need either of us but if you do we offer ten day thirty day and three month plans to kind of get you moving and our price points are a lot lot less lot less money were like one ninety nine is our is our entry point yet time's up by lake ten you're talking about a divorce attorney so our per our right what does one ninety nine covers what chunk of time so that's the ten days that's a really good deal for ten days if someone helping you like I like I feel like one hundred ninety nine hundred therapists charged yeah like one session -actly exactly and we're not we're not your therapist but certainly we act in in sort of a asses ambassadorial role and you'll find a therapist exactly so that's yeah I actually love that about your service that you guys don't claim to be like the aw how whatever like you you outsource to the people that are experts in each fields rate yeah that's one thing that's Angela and my pet peeve is like people Oh pretending to be experts in a certain field like even when it comes to dating Angela are very clear that we are not trained therapists this podcast is US giving best friend big sister advice and when we are talking about serious issues that's when we have our experts on the show so we we love that about you that you say you look to subject matter experts to Guy eight from everything from fitness to finance food prep how do you find your vet your experts that you bring in so we've been really fortunate we work out of the wing co working space says and we found a lot of women to love love wing the wing and they've been a great resource for finding the folks in our ecosystem and we spent a lot of time like you're eating and vetting these folks like I would never recommend any any service that I myself wouldn't use and so we're you know we're looking for folks in financial planning and therapy and you know moving companies that don't suck which is as hard in New York so you know we spend a Lotta time interviewing folks and talking to them and making sure that they're you know that we're putting our members in the best hands possible for this moment so you mentioned at this whole idea came from when you and your co founder went through your own breakup so how did that go from being like I wish that was the thing that existed to being like let's make this a thing that exists I think it was a weird it was weird moment. I went through my break-up right before the election for Hillary heartbreak our life and as I was working with sort of Mita in in the sense that she had just recently gone through her break up and we realized that we were like buying the same I e furniture and we we sort of have the same logistic needs we thought Oh my goodness there are so many friends that you know as New Yorkers who was actually in DC you know who we've helped through this experience that you know there's they're sort of like there's sort of like a scalable role roadmap to this and no one is clean that Beijing you can you know you can rent the runway for your fashion you can freshdirect for your groceries but when you're going through this and I do all of that they seem all of those things you can go to the subject matter experts but wouldn't it be amazing for this moment where and also New York is the city of transplants we don't necessary really have our you know mom from Ohio down the street to like car mattress down four flights of stairs and maybe even she was here we'd be embarrassed to ask her because you know breakup come with like a certain sense of stigma and embarrassment sometimes which we don't love so wouldn't it be amazing if we could take the experience we had and make it be helpful for other people we started thinking about it in both of us have backgrounds in project management I was Broadway producer for a long time Angela before she booked we'll have to talk about that later is I don't even like Broadway Junkie doesn't seem to Suffice Theater nerd Peter Nerd we stopped we love so megan are both very very big Broadway people she is a fan me as a former participant in Kearney world I and I think there's something very similar to Broadway and breakup you know obviously a lot of high drama but also like the show must go on right like you know the break-up is not the end of your life if this is a transitional empowering moment and we're going to figure it out you know we're going to get you on stage and like get it done And so I think there was something in that that we were like the service needs to exist so I guess we have to do it. Your website lists the three phase process for coping with the break-up can you walk us through what a typical aw sure what steps are sure as we're sort of finding unfortunately you know not breakup are the same in the way that no two relationships are the same but they do sort of seemed follow a similar path which is like the first step is always sort of the logistics piece like you're in this survival mode and you gotta you know if you were living together or if you have you know commingled anything you've got to figure out how to take care of that so so we look at the Logistics Pieces Bean Housing and moving and just your day to day like a good place good as to sleep you know we we started this off the sort of psychological concept of maslow's hierarchy of needs you need a place to sleep every night you need a place to be then the next phase we call the holistic which is like okay you've gotten settled in like let's focus on your emotional and total wellbeing physical wellbeing are you getting enough sleep or you're drinking water but you know with therapy it'd be good idea would be finding a new place to work out you canoe good idea for you would it be helpful for you to start kind of engaging in your neighborhood in some way and then finally like what we call sort of altruistic stage which is really just because we wanted is at the end but essentially like okay now you sort of gotten yourself together like maybe dating is something you're interested in maybe like expanding your community because a lot of times what happens in breakup we lose we lose a big portion if not all of our community you know you don't have your XS friends anymore you don't have your exes family anymore you know you sort of have to Ford your new your new sense of self and your new sense of tribe your new community out of that so we focus on that sort of the last last piece of it I love that yeah so I have a lot of a couple of friends going through breakup right now and they're in therapy and something they always say to me is like I wish therapist would just got to do because at therapists can't do that so we'll we'll like a break up concierge do that for you a little bit I mean we're not you can't force their hand but we do try to kind of happening here what are the resources you have to get going and whether that's like okay like maybe you should delete the unfiled up person on facebook because every time it's
