Seeking Refuge On The Open Road

"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out

Glossier Gives Big to BLM, and Promises Grants to Help Black-Owned Beauty Businesses

"You news about how businesses are. To the protests happening all across America we start today with news of Glossy on Saturday the privately held beauty brand pledged a million dollars to support the black lives matter movement making them one of the first companies to do so half of the money will go to six organizations fighting racial injustice, following the deaths of George Floyd Ahmad archery and Brianna Taylor. Glossy Gay will donate. Two black lives matter the equal justice initiative and the W. C. P. Legal. Defense Fund among others. The, other half will be distributed as grants to black owned beauty businesses. It statement on Instagram, said quoting here we stand in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism, white supremacy and historic oppression of the black community glossy is a skincare and makeup company, beloved by millennial customers founded by CEO. Emily Weiss, in twenty fourteen, the company primarily sells online capitalizing on an instagram audience, almost three million fans. Why started? Started her journey to entrepreneurship humbly as a fashion assistant at Vogue in twenty ten, she started a blog called into the gloss the behind the scenes. Beauty Biz blog became so popular that it served as a jumping off point for Weiss's startup for years later now only in her mid thirties. Why's presides over a privately held business worth more than a billion dollars at its most recent valuation last year? Notably glossiest uses its fan base as a test bed for new products. The close relationships it has with fans informed the company's. That means fans helped glossy make decisions on everything from what kind of moisturizer to release to the environmental impact of its ingredients to it stands on social issues. Although hundreds of brands or making statements in promising donations, glossy as million dollar pledge definitely made waves that's in part because glossy is still a small company relative to industry giants, like Lori Al and also because it was the first substantial pledge of support from a beauty company that's according to glossy an unrelated industry blog. That blog noted that glossy as million dollar pledge was the largest from the beauty industry announced to that point glossy noted. Noted that it's equivalent to what some of the largest tech companies like Intel promised, but it was glossy as pledged to help black-owned beauty businesses that really sparked interest. There's a growing understanding that helping businesses thrive creates an economically positive ripple effect. Harper's bazaar noted that glossy offered the grants without worrying that doing so could create new rivals for the company itself reporter Becky.

"Our first story Docu signs doctors jumped twenty two percent because it's mastering the art of killing for action but I can. We talk about that signature. Hell I hate to sign and apart us. It is in their huge pain. We're talking you you get there. You had two months deposit. You gotta give two personal reference. You you gotta like name your first born after the give up your dog but then signing the thing is a big pain then that's when you get to the signing yeah. You got those little plastic strips with the arrows. I remember when we signed our first lease East Fourteenth Street between second and third avenues beauty bar incredible spot. All four of US had to go in there and physically signed. We were physically. That's what you used to have to do. When you end a war with a treaty and Poland tree ever sock Docu sign has fixed this completely there pitched Jack some enough for US complicated. Yeah helps organizations connect automate how they prepare sign act on and manage agreements. That's great if you WanNa bore me. Can you give me the real pitcher what they actually do. e-signatures for Contra it's it's e signatures and by the way you can customize these e signatures to write it out. They'll actually propose like Nick Martel in super script but then they'll let you write your own right check. It's stressful because then you're likely that an okay I'm gonNA. Try Try to get this end. Docu side. IPO in May of last year and their stock surged twenty two percent Friday after a great earnings of basically had been flat. It had to been doing much before before Bowie. How big is the company over here. Context it's worth ten billion dollars based on their market cap and that's about two thirds of a lift now e signatures for Docu sign like a gateway drug so true science greatest challenge is actually its greatest benefit. You only use Docu sign when you need to get something side but when you need to get something signed you end up abusing its e signature feature and then you're kind of a little hooked. It's got a whole bunch of other drugs besides ise right because not just e signatures. It's helping manage documents helping store. Things is prepare all enterprise software. Thanks so we're GONNA talk about. Two Quick Quick Quick Case Studies. Yes t mobile is a big hockey. San Custom right because you get there. You're going to get the phone. You're in the store. You're switching from verizon to t mobile and you start to sign the process and then they're like Mister Kramer. Can you please initial here. Can you please initial. What's that three hundred dollar thing. They're just keep going in four hundred signatures and one hundred percent correct on this so Docu Sign Makes T. Mobile's on boarding process a little smoother right but then you got comcast which is doing the same thing they've started it using Docu sign not just re signatures but for the whole on boarding when they send like a repairman to come to your place to install it used to six volume set of paperwork to you now. He's got an IPAD managing the whole customer on boarding process the payment set up everything so document now that customers have started using these signatures and then doing more the number of subscriptions options is surging for doc you up forty one percent last quarter and now docu sign has four hundred thirty seven thousand paying customers worldwide and added twenty nine thousand last court so jack. What's the takeaway for our buddies over. Documenting dot there is docu signs friction Lewis Free. Trial is the key to its success. Here's the interesting comparison adobe does the same exact I think it's got an email e-signature services but docu sign is the one we're talking about on this pod and it's the one that has hundreds of millions of users. Now Adobe tries to do a free trial but they like load this thing up with pain. It's a huge pain just like signing a contract Japan. You have to give your credit card brutal and they're like don't worry we won't charge you until you're free trials up. It's like I still don't WanNa. Give my credit card now. They're like that character and Lord of the Rings. You shall not pass US trying to use the free product. That friction makes you not want to do the free trial. Meanwhile docu sign they like barely early even ask for email address and then your free trial the result is that Docu sign gets access to hundreds of millions of people who have tried the Docu sign product and once you try and have a good experience so you're more likely to become a pain and that's because e signatures are there gateway drug for our second story beyond me. Stock has dropped in the last few months. Basically because ridiculous dickey's competition on meet the insane stocks and sation of twenty nine thousand nine actually has had a bad chapter this summer and things got worse on Friday. It dropped like four percent for a few reasons yeah key one here well one analyst came out and strongly said this market for alternative me. It's not as big as people think he thinks it actually could be smaller than plant based milks. Yes yes vote cashier. No one does Brazil nut milk but could be an unlock market. One entrepreneur just got an idea in Brazil Jack other issue. Here's the case. The biggest issue here is competition exactly and it is coming from everywhere. Things got kicked up like like four notches specifically last week. Big Food Dude came to play last week in plant based we got Kellogg Hormel Kroger Taste. We're talking about companies that make cereal cornflakes and spam and now they're coming out with plant based. It's me it's and they came up with some hilarious name. We were blown away by the incognito tiny little plants simple truth raising rooted which are at least four we actually asked knackers last week to come out and tell us their best names on the next play. These were fantastic. We love this meat which is not meet but NEAT NEAT. That's from Navene Gene Rwanda and then Ahmed Hassan just came out with one that I want to put this on a t-shirt beef and beef and that simple now beyond me as two main sales channels restaurants lots of grocery stores about fifty fifty. It's interesting now. The new brands the ones we just mentioned they're focused on crowding. One specific sales point the grocery store exactly it's like beyond me me and impossible. Foods both discovered one empty gate to get into the stadium exactly rush there now. Everyone's like Oh my God. There's an empty gate. Suddenly securities crowd is rushing rushing into that game. They're making you take your shoes off now. So now what you have is a grocery store. Aisle is GonNa have a bunch of different plant based meat options and it might just become a price war. They lowest cost apple went so Jack. What's the takeaway for buddies over beyond me first mover advantage like beyond me ask it only works in certain scenario okay so in the grocery aisle beyond first mover advantage. It's not really helping here. There's going to be a battle for shelf space now and Kellogg and Kroger. They have long lasting relationships with grocery store. They're not just going to give up this fresh shelf space they have to another beyond on me in restaurants the first mover advantage beyond me has that may hold and they've got great relationships already beyond partnered with KFC subway Dunkin blue the Apron Tim hortons those partnerships like KFC isn't just going to drop beyond me and go with someone else in fact for Dunkin donuts they literally call the sandwich like the beyond breakfast the sound and because those restaurants relationships the first mover advantage is key that means the next one. McDonald's is going to be critical. McDonald's hasn't picked a provider of plant based meat yet for it's inevitable plant based big Mac but when it does it's going to want to choose an option that is established new and has supply chain that can handle the scale yeah not necessarily these big companies that are just dabbling and checking it out and have shown up late to the game by the way this is. Nick and both Jack and I own shares of beyond me for our third and final story we gotta talk about a Unicorn of the day here glossy. They just made a strategic higher. Let's give some cosmetic context here. SPF on by the way I do we do both thirty the thirty five last week we talked about alter which is a thousand physical stores another cosmetic. Queen Sephora twenty five hundred stores Galante has five and yet. It's worth one point two billion dollars because it is a direct to consumer online beauty company crushing online skin can here's what they just did the HR team over there was able to snag a one thousand nine hundred Amazonian to become the chief operating office out when you hire a nineteen year Amazonian it means no more Mister Nice Glossy. We should clarify this. This is as someone who worked at Amazon for nineteen. Now Glossy is big with middle and high school girls especially people in their twenties big portion of our snacks listenership and it has one hundred million in annual revenue. One million customers have used Gaza and for the record. It's a private company has an IPO but the reason this has really been driven by growth is what the C. CEO and founder the gloss boss Emily Weiss's done she built the company to look great on Instagram and that strategy is paying its core value. The company now has two who point three million followers is more than double the number of customers it has but that many are following on instant now if your focus is on looking at instagram because you want to sell the instagram that means packaging packaging becomes as important as the product the outside of a glossy product is as important as the interface and this thing is gorgeous you kinda put on your face as you probably want to eat that lip. The packaging is wonderful. It's pink it's clean. It's simple but stylish got like that bubble. Wrap option there with the zippers in this pink bubble wrap up next and I'm telling you it should be your torture. It's beautiful with you try. They would be giving the stuff away in order just to make friends. If you WANNA make somewhere now. The boy brow is one of their top like like I've <unk> shaping products bomb dot com and other one so do you know what Obama's no idea but I know the name is something I want to share and definitely put my users of glossy are posting <unk> glossy products on instagram. Get this Nikkan ideal. Hack researcher got some numbers here Hashtag Glossy. The number of glossy posts on Instagram is four hundred seventy four thousand how's that so many people have posted pictures of air products on instagram and when it comes to Kim Kardashian who is the queen of instagram. She's been Hashtag. K. K. W. beauty five hundred forty seven seven thousand times so glossy and Kim Kardashian are right there neck and neck in instagram performance of their products was a crash in one is a startup that is good company suject. What is the takeaway for buddies over glossy find your growth hack now. Growing is hard marketing focuses on it and they tend to do TV ads billboards. It's free samples. Maybe some subway spots now all of those things nick just mentioned they're very expensive but some really creative and successful unicorns particularly brand accords they managed to find growth growth hacks lost. Its growth hack was making packaging that is instant candy and leading your users. Do Your advertising for you on instagram outdoor voices wanted to get you in their leisure gear but but they also gave you that free tote that pretty much. Everyone has walking outdoor voices billboard when I go to the airport. I always bring that Jack and I commute in the bags. Were dedicated to them Casper. Does you know the mattress in a box yeah exactly when you unblock that thing as it expands. I literally posted that video and instant. It's like I man on the moon moment. You want to tell everyone. I remember the first time I saw it. It'll never it's not just these millennial brandon companies. If you go way back to skype we're talking growth hack history. I skype users users after they made their first phone. Call it would ask. Do you want to add your entire. Inbox to become skype irs boom easy one click and then you get like an email going to everybody in your inbox asking to join join. Scott Growth hacks should become a business school class. We're calling it now. It's GONNA growth hacks accelerate growth for cheap. You got to be creative and it's how glossy became a Unicorn. This is Jack. I also own stock in Amazon Jack in your whip. The takeaways over there to start back Nick Docu sign has made the free trial friction land and that's why hundreds of millions have free tried to thing for easing Gers. The Gateway Signature well set second-story beyond meat stock is down because of a bunch of new competition that hit last week. He can barely breathe in that grocery store. I'll I'll six with the parent based. Meat is so crowded third final glossy just hired an Amazonian to be the chief operating office. It's at a new phase a phase.

You know she's she's given glossy soul and on that note to really honor that idea we are going to close it out with a few questions from her biggest fans girl in a makeup industry. A lot of guys dominated then the c._o. Kind of physician well. It's interesting. I mean l'oreal has a male c._o. S._e._o. Water has a male c._e._o. But the the majority of the browns at those companies own founded by women so generally the the woman is the ceo for you know. It seems like if i just did did a quick at a quick glance. The woman is the for awhile and maybe once the company gets bought or sold or tie enough time goes by somehow. The the female founders ended up going away. I don't have any plans to go away anytime soon. So it feels great. I mean i love being a girl. I love being a woman feels great. Who do you see glossy and ten years. I see glossy in ten years as being a truly global beauty company not just a beauty brand around not a niche brand not just a u._s. brand but i really see it being that a thirteen year old girl in the middle east can have a g sweatshirt and share that connection with a seventy year old woman in in silicon valley who is wearing the same sweatshirt i see it being this truly global connective tissue that powers women all around the world aw.

"Job. I can do this job. It's like but tell me why let's really get into this like. What are you going to bring to this. <hes> and i think when someone shows that they can not only just do the job on paper because that changes so fast like were growing like crazy so you're not going to be doing the same thing that you came in to do in a couple of months but it's when they can really show that they're going to be a positive impact on our culture that i really sit up and take notice your way to build glossies way of doing things above and beyond just doing your job. We know a lot about glossy right now. Don't we currently yeah. We could write the encyclopedia entry but i think people want to know about emily to write the creator and yeah i. I thought she was really wonderful. When we met her yet she was gorgeous. I will admit i was a little bit intimidated. I kind of had that feeling of my belly like when i interview a celebrity like oh. I'm just intimidated because she's such a pretty person like honestly comes in looking like an actress lino just like the perfect five. Oh one you're like where'd you get those like camel coat victorian blouse sneakers and like her hair just so silky yeah you know and so i just kinda like erskine as well oh yeah so and then we're in this polaroid picture together and she's in the middle with their arms draped around us just like so casual and and i'm like half a photo way no. I think it's a cute photo but it's funny. You mentioned that because we asked emily what the one thing is that a lot of people don't know about her and you know it kind of doctors so in that case we asked morgan who is in the room with her and got hurt away in. I think you come off a lot more serious than you actually are law googlers earlier than i think people expect more uh-huh. I'm kind of what you see is what you get like me on instagram kind of the same as mu in real life is the same as me at work. I'm mad silly. It's actually really true. I'm also. I think people don't realize that i'm actually really nerdy. I get the cool girl thing i mean. She does look like a model she she though in person is very very approachable. Yes she totally. She sat down with us. She's like how long have you guys been doing this. You know she was great and i think to that point i think people do you want to know more about her and also how she looked so great so we did ask her some questions about what herself care routine is like i recently took up vedic meditation so i try meditate at least once a day for twenty minutes in the morning when i wake up and hopefully twenty twenty minutes in the afternoon but that one's a lot harder i also love baths. I take i take a bath almost every night especially in the winter like when it's it's not hot out i usually do it with either epsom salt and a half a box of armand hammer baking soda or i'll do himalayan sea salt that i buy in bulk. I just bought a fifty five pound delivery of himalayan sea salt. We also asked her about her. Favorite beauty hacks acs one that i recently have taken up is spraying my beauty blender with rosewater messed with <hes> soothing face mist instead of just is usually like running it under the sink. It smells wonderful another beauty hack with glossy products. Oh i blend together puff and beam of cloud paint to make my own custom blush color. I joke that this brand is like a cult but really it's like a giant girls. Club is where people are trading trading these types of tips and you know what they're loving and i think that's really one of the points that emily wanted to make with glossy is like you in the past would go oh into a drugstore..

"They love the product. We have like a super high. Repeat rate people are coming back the replenishing and we are formalizing that in in in different different ways and bringing her closer. I like to think you know if you're a woman who just wants to get your prime moisturizer. Every two months you can just subscribed doesn't want to hear from us. Doesn't our emails doesn't want her. You know instagram. I don't know why they're pretty funny but she can just subscribe in have that auto delivered to her and be curb the the end of her engagement with the brand. That's fine totally great. I'm happy she likes the product but we also have sort of <hes> ladder of of engagement across different channels all the way up to our reps and creators who are rewarded to create content for us and those are not you know influencers in the sense they are kim kardashian kylie's or you know even people with hundreds of thousands of followers but they're very influential in their groups of friends <hes> you know you might have one hundred and fifty followers on instagram but they're all following you for a reason they wanna see what you care about so you by definition or an influencer to them and and so we really see all of our customers as influencers to varying degrees and if they wanna participate more or the most i should say with our brand and create content on our platform platform on her channels organizing ways for her to do that and get rewarded. I wonder what it's actually like to work at glossy though they didn't invite us to stop by their showroom room in manhattan so we will do that. Maybe we can volunteer to in turn to do you actually would. I probably learned a lot. I know i would learn a lot all stuff bags. I just i want to be just wanted to see what's happening. <hes> yeah i wanna see all these mood boards that she talks about in the they still have the original mood board's chair in their office that emily molly had in her apartment. She was dreaming glossy. I wanna see that they're expanding really fast. They just celebrated their third birthday as we said they now have a hundred and twenty eight people on staff including in their office in montreal and they're expanding into the u._k. And to enter france as well and when when i chatted with emily's executive of assistant morgan von stein emily always has post on her instagram stories hashtag the daily morgan hey morgan but she basically said that she worked in the same building being as emily when she was an internet fashiony sta and she got an intro to her and then she just really admired her from far from afar for a while and when they got funding funding she was just like that's it. I gotta go work for this girl so she is inspiring legions of customers. Emily is but also inspiring a whole new generation of women and and in business that want to be part of this process and are excited about and you said most of our employees are women right yeah yeah so we asked tell me what does it take to work at glossy to be honest. I think resumes are i don't know i don't really look at them that much i do. I like to have them in a meeting for context but i really value in love and in-person meeting and i love a a if i can't interview someone i interview every single person we hire before we hire them if i can't do it in person i always do a facetime. I think human to human connection in this crazy digital world of ours is super important as are tangible experiences and and things the most impressive thing i've seen from a candidate though some of the things that hit my daska are incredible for presentations people make kind of mail and mail in but i am always most impressed when someone can tell me what value they think they could add to. The business and the answers can vary widely but it's usually something that isn't necessarily it's. It's not like yes hire me for this job..

She coins the whole skin first makeup second philosophy but i mean i think the packaging you know speaking king of being in magazines and being all over instagram. Obviously the packaging is a huge part of the story is just so visually pleasing. It's pink and white.

She packaged it in these. He's pink bubble envelopes and that was that was a i. It seems like it's everywhere now but you know she was the first one to have that idea. Everything's under thirty dollars and i have the primary moisturizer right here. The one thing i would say about the price points is i do think it's an accurate reflection of the ingredients that are available in this the voice riser playing with these big time like a._j.'s glycol of gossip and whatnot anti aging it all is just a soothing priming wing moisturizer. There's no silicones in it and it has glycerin in it and <hes> a couple of peptides but sort of toward the end of the ingredient list so she's not reinventing the wheel with ingredients which is one thing i think people should know about the brea is like that is reflected in the price point right well. She does say like she what she he sought to do is create these utilitarian products that were kind of back to basics. You know she didn't want to overdo it on anything and you know to that point i mean i think this is another whole side to the story that we're going to be just so much.

Stay tuned at the end of this episode here a little more about this fascinating new show. Frahm wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily. Hey, how much would you pay for a pair of shoes? If you didn't know what they were worth. That's the question discount shoe brand PayLess wanted to answer. And so it conducted an experiment right out of the textbooks of behavioral economists, the company created a fake luxury popup store and called it policy. They built it in a former Armani store in Los Angeles. And stocked it with PayLess products from Stella does to embellish sneakers. It had to look, right? So they added soft lighting gold mannequins and gorgeous sales people, then PayLess created a grand opening and invited internet influencers, so called fashion easter's who profit from showing off designer where on social media on the day of the big party, a long line formed outside the store inside champagne snacks and lots of self fees. The shoes whose prices normally ranged from nineteen nine. Eighty nine to thirty nine ninety nine were either marked up or left without tags. Guests were asked to bid on the shoes with no price listed some fell so hard for the stunt that one woman paid six hundred forty dollars an eighteen hundred percent markup videos recorded guests, impressions of the fake designer shoes. They call them elegant stunning in obviously made with high quality materials the shopping environment. And the online ads are the farthest cry from PayLess his actual barebones strip mall stores and branding, which usually appeal to budget minded pragmatists. And so the Gotcha moments when PayLess employees admitted to the influencers that it was all a hoax elicited shock for PayLess. Those reactions caught on video where priceless and viral, by the way, PayLess refunded shoppers money and gave them each of free. Pair of shoes while listeners might be skeptical. The. Experiment has roots in social science behavioral scientists have evidence that both language and environment dramatically change. Our perceptions of value. We happily pay more for grass fed beef on handmade buns and served on China plates than we do for McDonald's hamburger PayLess proved that often it's the environment and the language that influences to pay more in this case. Hundreds more been a product is worth and the company which has been struggling also scored a crucial point for itself. If people can't tell the difference between PayLess is nineteen ninety nine shoes and designer wear. Why not save the money? Think about that. The next time you need a new pair of stilettos.

Stay tuned at the end of this episode here a little more about this fascinating new show. From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Wednesday, December twelve Airbnb wants to build you a house. Yes, you heard me, right. The company that popularized home sharing all over the world. Now wants to design and build homes for sale. The idea comes from an Airbnb think tank called Sam, Sarah, which CEO Joe Gebbie created two years ago. Once the company was worth billions and had loads of data on how we choose using share housing Gebbie thought it was time to dream up disruption. So he puts them Airbnb dreamers to work and a new division called backyard was born but backyard is no traditional housing developer, like, DR, Horton or Lanar homes. It's an incubator experimenting with ways to build housing. That's designed for sharing from the start Gebbie positions backyard as a laboratory attempting to solve social environmental and even cultural problems of not enough housing for growth. Population outmoded architecture not intended for sharing and environmentally wasteful construction. Ironically, it's worth noting that critics accuse Airbnb of fueling housing shortages and driving up rental prices in major cities. It's not clear yet. Whether backyard homes will be cottages single family houses apartment buildings or all of the above. But one thing is clear. They'll incorporates smart home technology right from the start, and they might include flexible construction with movable, walls and other futuristic notions. It's all part of the company's plan not to become just another developer. But to as Gebbie says, rethink the home. It's also when effort to rethink Airbnb and give it some physical assets, not just virtual ones to take it into the future. From one degree. This is business.

Patagonia Gives $10m Tax Windfall to Eco Groups

"Business wars daily is brought to you by the podcast the growth show each week. They explore inspiring stories that get to the heart of how people grow a business an idea or movement. Stay tuned at the end of this episode here a little more about this fascinating new show. Brom wondering, I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Tuesday, December eleventh Patagonia knows how it spending the ten million dollars. It suddenly found in its pocket. This year. The outdoor clothing company is giving away the money to environmental advocacy groups. The move is a poke in the eye of the Trump administration. The windfall comes from the tax Bill passed earlier this year, which lowered the corporate tax rate that move left many companies flush with cash, but it was also a boon to the oil and gas companies and now Patagonia wants no part of it company. Founder Yvonne Shenar, call the tax cut irresponsible saying the government is ignoring the seriousness in causes of the climate crisis. In a company statement CEO rose macario argued the tax cut is threatening life-giving resources at the expense of our planet as for the money. She said our home planet needs it more than we do. Patagonia has long been known for its. Environmental activism, the company already gives one percent of its annual sales to environmental causes a year ago after the president reduced the size of two national monuments Patagonia blacked out its homepage and replaced it. With the senate's quote, the president stole your land. It's fans instantly rewarded the move by buying more fleas that week sales jumped seven percent, the outdoor clothing industry tries to brand itself as environmentally responsible. Value shared by many of its customers. So does Patagonia most direct competitor the north face though? It's advocacy is more subdued its owner recently announced a plan to reuse materials and try to make its business less. Wasteful Patagonia is privately held. And it's too soon to say whether customers are rewarding the company for its politically motivated gift, but CEO Mark Cario has said that when Patagonia takes his stand. It makes more money not less. Indeed, some research shows that for brands that has spouse values like Patagonia and the north face staying silent can hurt business, but for other kinds of companies the economic effect of social activism is less clear as more and more brands respond to societal issues. You can bet that this debate is occurring in boardrooms across the country, and that we might see more companies speaking up. Romm wondering this is business wars daily.

And so when another service comes along to disrupt the big carriers, it raises my eyebrows last week, Google did just that quietly making its little known cell phone service work with the iphone surprise, Google is a service provider. It's been offering cell phone service through something called project fi for three years under that plan. There's no contract unlimited talk as twenty bucks per month and every gig of data up to six cost ten dollars. Simple. But until now project fi only worked with a few phones, including Google's own pixel, which is pretty scarce. But until now project fi is only worked with a few phones, including Google's own pixel, which is pretty scares. Well, last week Google announced that project fi renamed as good. Google fi. Now works with the iphone and many more Android devices than it had before it promises. The same simple pricing and unlimited international roaming could Google's development break. The stranglehold of major networks have on our cell service and well, lower our bills. Yes. And no project fi is something called a mobile virtual network operator, meaning Google doesn't actually own its own network. It leases space on T mobile, sprint and US. Cellular lines? Phone calls are supposed to hop. Automatically to whichever network offers the highest quality at the time. Trouble is Google FIS. Iphone service, isn't fully baked the automatic. Switching doesn't happen on apple products and several iphone features like visual voicemail, become unavailable over Google fi. With all the caveats iphone users, probably won't switch wholesale. Sale to Google fi anytime soon. But watch this space Google fi might not be quite ready for prime time. But it's a whole lot closer. I'm wondering this business wars daily.

A Toy Story: FAO Schwarz Returns

"Business wars daily is brought to you by the podcast the growth show each week. They explore inspiring stories that get to the heart of how people grow a business an idea or movement. Stay tuned at the end of this episode here a little more about this fascinating new show. From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on Thursday, December sixth. Oh, the nostalgia. The toy store to end all toy stores. FAO Schwarz is back after closing its flagship New York store suddenly three years ago due to rising rents its owners have opened up a new flagship store in New York City at Rockefeller Center, and for some it's as if Santa Claus himself has shown up in the flesh walk into the Manhattan shop and you'll see the famous piano on the floor the same one that Tom Hanks danced on in the movie big. And of course, FAO's famous toy soldiers everywhere when it comes to business. The return of FAO Schwarz is both smart and predictable since this holiday season. There's a billion dollar gap in the toy market following the toys, R us, bankruptcy, and who wouldn't wanna fill that. But says the New York Times, this is not your childhoods FAO Schwarz. It's private equity owners are mostly opening. Small pop up stores within other retailers. That's the same strategy Jeffries toy box, the reincarnated toys R us is using popping up small shops. In supermarkets the point is to avoid expensive real estate leases and bringing in too much inventory as FAO had done before. Some critics though are calling the reincarnated company a shell of its former self and some toy manufacturers are angry FAO wants the toy makers to put their products on store shelves, but the company will only pay vendors for the toys that actually sell rather than buying inventory outright from vendors to toymakers. It looks like FAO wants the prophets, but none of the risk and some are refusing to participate the variety of inventory could pale compared to the old days. This new retailer won't be the wildly imaginative candy store of a toy company that fan. Came to expect still FAO's owners aren't without an appreciation for the wonder. Enjoy the old toy store inspired. And they claim they want employees to bring a sense of theater to their jobs applicants for jobs ranging from cashier to technologist had to audition at an Upper West side theater. Here's hoping the winners will bring some of the old magic back to the new FAO Schwarz. Brome wondering this business daily? We hope you're having a fun filled week.

"Business wars daily is brought to you by the podcast the growth show each week. They explore inspiring stories that get to the heart of how people grow a business an idea or movement. Stay tuned at the end of this episode here a little more about this fascinating new show. From wondering, I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Tuesday December fourth if you were worn out by cyber Monday. You may not have noticed. What happened the next day a new so-called holiday travel Tuesday. It was a budget travelers dream day for scooping up bargain priced flights. The day was heavily promoted by travel app company. Hopper. A Montreal based startup that employs artificial intelligence to predict the cheapest times in places to travel and the least expensive time to buy the tickets hopper was founded by former Expedia travel exotic Frederic LaLonde self taught Canadian programmer years ago LaLonde thought what if artificial intelligence could help us predict not just the best time to fly. But when to book those flights, his former employer expedient provides a spreadsheets worth of flight times and costs with no predictions. The implication is you should book now because ticket prices always rise. That's actually not true and algorithms that hopper figured out enable the app to tell you not only that your ticket price could drop, but by how much and for how long and when it'll get pricier. Again, the lawn claims that their predictions are accurate for travel up to a year out within five dollars of the price. That kind of information turns out to be an aggregate dream hopper combed through its massive databases for the last two years and notice that on the Tuesday after thanksgiving airlines were drastically discounting their fares. So hopper started promoting travel Tuesday generating loads of publicity for the airlines and for hopper, but what really turned out to be a game changer for hopper was that the company began using it's data differently by suggesting cheaper alternative destinations to penny. Pinching travelers without the travelers I asking they began suggesting safe and affordable. Ribian vacation rather than the expensive Hawaiian trip. You thought you wanted LaLonde claims that once hopper started down that route it began selling one million dollars worth of flights each week that users had never asked for like putting a travel agent in their pocket. Hopper. Now claims to have thirty million users the catch, however is that hopper works best for people with flexible schedules, Expedia is competitive for normal flights when you have to leave Friday and come back Sunday or no weekend escape for you. There's no question that AI is up ending the travel industry or that it keeps. Improving. Today's top app won't be king of the hill. Tomorrow. The good news with judicious use of several travel apps. You may find yourself exploring caves in Belize or sipping a cappuccino in Rome next spring whenever and wherever your app tells you to go. From wondering this is business wars daily.

Sometimes you just have to throw in the towel that seems to be the reluctant message from YouTube which last week said, it's scaling back on its original scripted content and will now make most of it free. Supported by ads free isn't all YouTube content already free. Well, no. And the fact that you may not have known that is the problem YouTube launched a twelve dollar a month ad free. Streaming service three years ago. Essentially boasting that the platform that made it big on skateboarding videos could also make premium scripted TV compelling enough to compete with house of cards, and even though YouTube had to built in advantages almost two billion users and boatloads of Google cache many customers didn't even know you YouTube premium existed, subscriber numbers or secret. But based on this announcement, it's clear YouTube never got the. Action it needed with subscribers and that may be because people already get compelling shows from Amazon prime net flicks and Hulu and soon from apple those services all commit billions to producing high quality shows compared to YouTube premium which spends only hundreds of millions besides YouTube fans are used to watching for free. And once we get used to free. It's hard to convince us to part with our hard-earned money YouTube isn't pulling the service altogether. Some existing shows will remain behind the premium pay wall, including its flagship karate kid spin off called Cobra KAI confusingly. You'll still be able to subscribe to YouTube. Bring him YouTube is still working out. How best they'll serve premium subscribers perhaps by offering the chance to binge watch shows otherwise released one episode at a time that's a strategy that the Hollywood reporter calls quote, weirdly inventive. In other words, how naive would you have to be now to pay for it the brutal competition in Hollywood for EMMY and Oscar worthy content means that some players like YouTube premium may not last let's just say that streaming services playing in this premium space or looking at the survival of the flick Asst.

"And so we came and said we have these four products. We want them to do these things we want them to have these ingredients and not have these ingredients. And we want the price to be this. And so we have to figure out like how to find the most amazing ingredients, and it's really just a back and forth, and we would spend on average maybe like two or three months or four months of just shipping. Samples back and forth each other. But a lot of it was just noting out in the lab he had like a little room full of ingredients like raw materials. Is what they're called. So literally like they'll be like a VAT of like Kupa cow butter from like, you know, the Amazon rainforest just sitting there like that's like part one of the things you see listed on the back of your whatever will just be in bulk sitting in a thing. So he would say like oh undo a jar and be like smell this, you know, or scoop out thing and put it on your hand and say it's like being in a shifts kitchen, and so it really is all about that personal relationship that you have and your ability to work with someone you're -bility like riff off each other that has led to some of the most amazing innovations. I it seems like baked into the business model from the beginning was very deliberate idea that you were not going to have your product in the CBS or Sephora or Bloomingdale's or Lord and Taylor wherever that this was going to be direct to consumer. Why why why wouldn't you make it available at these other places because we can build better product by having a direct relationship to every person how we don't have to make decisions for anyone other than the end user like full stop. So first of all that alleviates a ton of things that don't things that don't matter to you holding something and enjoying it and using it it also enables us to like ask you questions it enables us to like send you like questionnaires have been happy with this. Do you like what you got? You know, how would you improve it? What should we make later? It allows us to create platforms that connect our customers with each other to talk about shared experiences around beauty. So we've put.

"I would like learn about it. I would like be like show me your product. Let me understand this. Let me put it on the back of my hand. Like, can you tell me about like how people use this product? And the best people did do that. And we have a handful of really amazing. Venture capitalists. We have a fifty percent female board in our first investor Kirstin, I spent a lot of time with and she was the she was that that one Million Dollar Challenge. She she believed in this idea. She wrote you that check do you know, why she decided to take the take the risk? She has a really gut and data back to knack for identifying consumer product companies she invest. Sted in Worby Parker. She invested in bonobos, she invested most recently in a way. So she she's got good instincts. She has really. Yeah. Around around around what are people going to care about? What are they wanna live with? You know, like, what do they what moves people? I mean, this is a really emotional category. Beauty. You know, again, there's no single truth. Right. So it's really just about like opinion in preference, and and so many other ingredients. All right. So you've got this million bucks. Right. We raised we raised too. Because you can't spend everything that you, you know. And so how do you start a makeup company like where do you go who do you call up? And what do you say like, oh, can you make me this mega? But there's chemistry as like how do you knew? How do you make makeup? I mean, you know, let me tell you how I built this. So okay. So my first higher so first of all always higher for your weaknesses, right and surround yourself with just the most brilliant people you can ever convince to come work on the shared vision that you have and my first hire was an incredible director of product development who had over a decade of experience at MAC cosmetics. That was my first higher because I've never made a makeup product. And I don't know how it works or vendors or how long things take like, I've I've no idea, and I remember she ended up getting a recommendation for a chemist from someone who she knew from the beauty industry who was based outside of LA. So we flew to LA we got early Hertz rental car, and we drove during rush hour all the way down to this like middle of nowhere place, and we pulled into the parking lot the parking lots empty. There's like a stray dog like roaming through it like tumbleweeds blow. I mean, you know, it was very. It did not look like this was going to be our chemists. And there's this little mirrored building. It was literally like mirrored. So that you couldn't see inside. I mean, I was like why don't we just go? This is most certainly not our guy, but we went in. And I am so glad we did. Because inside was this like six four jacked like dad who like like has who's like building game changing skin care products for some of the biggest brands that? You've you guys are literally sitting here wearing products that he's created. Well, who's so excited about women's skin care like you just would not believe well, and and that the became our chemists, and he's actually developed like, I don't know almost all of our skin care products. And what do you say them, you say a one, you know, this this sent or want it like, how do you tell him what you want? Yeah. It's it's really a huge collaboration. I'm trying to think of like what I can. Equate it to maybe like the relationship between you and like your architect. Like if you're building a house. It depends because there's lots of like each of us would have a different relationship with an architect. Like, one of us might go to them knowing exactly what we want with exactly the ingredients in the exact approach to sustainability in exact budget, and like might be super involved and other ones of us may be like I kind of want like a White House. You know? And and so like where we were we were more in the former camp..

"American Express beliefs support is part of the magic formula after all there's no I in. We no matter what your idea bigger small. You don't have to go it alone. Because American Express has your back don't live life without it. Hey, welcome back to how I built this from NPR. So it's two thousand thirteen and Emily Weiss has decided to make her own beauty products. And she thinks she'll need about a million dollars to make it happen. How did you? How did you know where to start? I mean, you're in the New York fashion world, obviously, you've got the successful blog. But like a lot of that is Silicon Valley VC monies out there, and that's a whole world. How did you know where to start? Well, first of all I was like what is VC money? What is like what is like oh venture capital? What is that? I mean, let's not forget I went to art school. Like, I did not go to business school. I did not I did not work at a tech company. And by the way, a lot of founders of you know, fast-growth venture backed companies worked at a fast growth venture backed company. Right. So as an outsider really hard to sort of understand probably very intimidating, but again back to that power of grit. I just kind of plowed through on this. You know exploration. Like, I think my personal superpower. If there's one thing that I think is I'm really good at I'm super curious. And so I kind of made a list, frankly, it wasn't even just about raising money. I remember having a whiteboard like what are all the steps? It's going to take to to build this company, and I wrote, you know, VC like Braise money build website find chemist, you know, make logo, you know, shoe wrote this in a white whiteboard. I still have the picture like what are all the ingredients that this is going to take? And of course, you don't know until you find out from one conversation what the other ingredient is you're missing and just you just have to start you have a start somewhere. So, you know, the money needing to get raised happened pretty early in that process. What was your like elevator pitch VC's? They so you go in and they'd Tokay next. Yeah. My pitch to VC's in the beginning. Was you know, we have this. Great community. We understand beauty and people in stories, and we have this robust community. Who we believe deserve a better, a better brand, a brand that that really hears them and understands them, and and there's a lot of room in the market because this is a huge huge industry, really right for disruption. There weren't very many direct to consumer brands at the time. Now, you have you know, color, pop Kylie and Kim Kardashian and all these different, you know, deed ac- kind of brands but that hasn't happened. Yeah. I read the that you pitched I dunno thirteen or fourteen the companies and mostly men and only one eventually agreed to give you that initial funding. It was the the the was woman Kristen green. How did that happen? Yeah. So six percent of venture capitalists are women. And hopefully that will go up. So listen, we have incredible partners. I think initially so much of funding is around pattern recognition. And so you have venture capitals whose job it is to make smart bets on companies that are going to grow super super fast and become the next Facebook. Right. And so it's hard to I think look at like, a female CEO who does not have business of business school degree, and sort of say, we're gonna take the bet and it felt, you know, it's exhausting, and I think I know a lot of entrepreneurs, and I think it's hard for everyone. I it was it was exhausting to go, and we would hand our COO. And I we would hand our products, you know, you'd have her little goodie bags and bring them to different rooms full of guys and have. Get the bag and say, oh, that's so nice. Thank you. I'm going to give it to my wife and ask her what she thinks. And I would say to myself if you know, some like financial technology company came to me and pitched me I wouldn't be like, oh, I'm going to go ask my husband to like explain this to me..

"Day job. How did you know when to quit vogue to go full time? I mean, listen super personal decision based on a ton of different, you know, very personal factors for up for any any entrepreneur for me. It was really just one decision to make which was. I have to pick one this is taking too much time. And there's too much momentum. It's impossible to continue to deliver the product that people want like people readers wanted. This point of a really big community was really wanting that I felt like I really there was really no choice. It's not even just follow your gut. It's like follow something that is is really working is really delivering like, you know, changing things. And once you knew that you news time to throw everything into that. Yeah. It was time. I would have thought that that at that point, you know, into the gloss was you were going to use your thinking about this as a media property, right? Like, this was a blog maybe would spin it out into podcast or video show or something else like a deal with cable TV. But that's not what happened you you decided to create a product was that. I mean again like was that some. Something that just kind of happened on its own. Or was it a really deliberative thought through thing? Yeah. So the it's a really good question. And I think the thing that has led to every decision that I've made is this very central thesis that you can create conversations and connections through beauty and into gloss was the first version of that like that was the first step. It was the necessary beginning that showed a certain behavioral shift. You know, it was like encouraged people to be like, okay, I'm sharing. Now. What goes on in my bathroom? You know that I used to do totally alone and in doing in working on into the gos- for the first year. I was exposed all of these beauty companies. So I was working with Lancome. I was working with Estee Lauder. I was working with Cody was working with you know, every big conglomerate and beauty is a huge industry. And it's a four hundred fifty. Billion dollar global market. It's going to be seven hundred fifty billion in six years. Well, and why is that because of social media because of sharing because of the ability to have conversation that beauty is now something that is not just tightly held in the hands of sales people at a counter, you know, what was the last time? Any of you have like really relied on that. Yeah. Fifty percent of people who go into a Sephora take out their iphones, your googling. You're texting your friend. I in Sephora should I get? What was that saying you told me about, you know, that's how things work, and what's interesting is these companies I was hearing in these interviews from from women as I was sitting on the you know on the bathroom floor. I was hearing this disconnect that would have been answered if beauty brands just listened like if the actual beauty brands were listening to well. First of all if they knew who you were which they don't because their client is the retailer beauty brands build products and clients for the knee. Needs of Macy's and Sephora and Ulta and CVS and those are shelf space needs in season -ality needs and margin needs and all of these different needs that have nothing to do with you as the customer. So that results in this kind of subpar like product experience and kind of brand relationship. There's not really this like personal like, you get me relationship, and that was what led to the creation of glossy because all of every beauty brand that I have ever known is been built tops down. And the idea for glossy is what would happen if you could build a beauty brand bottoms up. You could ask a question like who makes your dream face wash?.

"And you were. To Ralph Laurens headquarters six fifty Madison Avenue, it was on Madison and sixty s there was a hotdog stand in front that I would eat like by. I was so excited about I'll never forget this. I was so excited about getting these hotdogs, I I was in New York City like this is what you do. They were like, oh my God. What are you eating like to not eat that? I remember like those I didn't know, and what do you what do you remember about? Like what what did you? What did you do there? I mean, you were fifteen sixteen year old whatever whatever photo ski. I would. I was so happy you could give me anything. I was scanning I was running errands. I was I was the happiest intern you've ever seen. Did you ever? Did you ever meet Ralph? Oh, yes. You did. Yes. So I know I remember I was in a room. You know, I was like the note taker so I was sitting in the room in the back and in the corner, and like, you know, everyone was I dunno meeting, and I was taking notes and Ralph turns to me, you know, I think I'd actually maybe she can his hand amendment one point. But he doesn't know me. And you know, and he goes everyone just stops. And he looks me. And he goes, what do you think? I don't remember what I said. I don't remember. I just remember like the whole thing stopping the masking because they were talking about something. I don't even know. Oh, so you did those two summers as an internet. Ralph Lauren, and then it was time for you to college went here to NYU as you studied studio art, and once you moved here, you got another internship at vogue. Yes. At teen. Vogue teen vogue. And by the way. I I know a lot of us have have an impression of what it might be like to work, and, you know, like, a Conde Nash fashion magazine from devil wears Prada. It's a great film. It's a great film. Great film. Is there any truth to that? I mean, so I was really fortunate because I had a great boss. So I was actually at teen vogue as an intern. And then it vote which was the job that I had before building this company. Sure. And I was very I think it's all about it's kind of like anywhere. It all depends who your bosses like it doesn't matter. What company you're at? It's like isn't there that I just heard from someone that your personality is a result of the like three or five people who you spend the most time with. You know, if you work with great smart talented people, which I was very fortunate to do then you learn a lot when you were when you were an internet teen vogue. And then you get your first shove at college at Bogue. Did you envision that your career would be as a fashion writer, or fashion editor is that what you thought this is what I'm going to do with my life. Yes. I mean, I, you know, my dream was to be editor in chief. So at the time, you know, in my in my early twenties that was you know, I looked at someone like Anna Wintour, and that was incredibly inspiring to me. So how did you I guess at some point you were able to write for vogue, you're able to write an article which was about about self tanning? So this is this is kind of funny. So I didn't turned in. I was always working in fashion and beauty is kind of like this ugly stepsister to fashion in in magazines, and in media, it's really funny because all of the ad revenue. Most a lot of it comes from beauty, and these magazines. But if you think about it, like if you're reading an issue of a fashion magazine beauty can sometimes at least, you know, ten years ago be like five or six pages or ten pages. You know, there's such little airtime dedicated to this topic that in many ways, you're like forced to deal with on a more fundamental level everyday than even what you're wearing. Right. If like personal hygiene. So I'd never worked. I'd never covered. This like, I enjoyed beauty. And I love talking about beauty with people. But I'm not even someone who's wearing you know, who's like obsessed with beauty and away..

"That's now shaking up the entire cosmic industry. Toback in two thousand twelve Facebook paid about a billion dollars for Instagram. You might remember. We actually interviewed the Instagram founders back when we first launched the show, anyway, what made Instagram of valuable proposition to Facebook. And the time wasn't profitability Instagram was basically a free app or people posted their photos, but what did have was twenty million users and Facebook saw in Instagram. What it saw in itself years before you build the customer base first. And then you figure out how to monetize the business with those customers. Now, this isn't an easy way to start a business. You have to create something for free. That's compelling enough to keep people coming after you introduce the product, and this is sort of the story of glossy, and I say sort of because when Emily Weiss started, her fashion and beauty blog back in twenty ten. She didn't do it with the intention of one. Creating her own cosmetics brand, but what happened was that blog into the gloss? It blew up hundreds of thousands of readers became obsessed with hearing about other women's skin care routines. And so as the blood grew Emily started to wonder could I actually create a cosmetics brand four my readers. So in two thousand fourteen she found a single investor and she launched a small line of skincare and makeup products. And today just four years later glossier is valued at around four hundred million dollars and her customer base of millennial women is the envy of the cosmetics world. So now, how did she do it? How did Emily Weiss seem to come out of nowhere to disrupt an entire industry? Well, the first thing to know is she didn't come out of nowhere. Emily's been walking the walk since age fifteen when she talked her way into an internship at. Ralph Lauren, and then got a college job at vogue where she ended up working for several years for quitting to focus on her blog. Full-time? It's a blog that inspires fierce passion, among her readers. And when I sat down with Emily for a live interview on stage at the screwball center for the performing arts in New York. You could hear that passion crowd..
