Lamont his wife Helen Gertrude would vacation there during the nineteen twenty s, and through his tenure as President Herbert hoovers secretary of Commerce during the Great Depression. The Lamont's called their home summer wind.

According to a frequently repeated legend, the couple was having dinner in the houses kitchen one night when the door to the basement shook itself. Revealing the spectral form of a man. Lamont panicked in fired two shots as the door swung shot leaving two bullet holes in the door. Perhaps it was this experience that caused the couple to flee the house.

"How to convince people that front is the best place to work and so making sure that you know recruiting team are hiring. Managers are trained to talk about. Why Francie so great and the really is. That's not how we do it today. Like what we do is. Let's say you interviewed front and I'm chatting with you but you are treated as a matter lay. We'll try to understand what would make you most happy in your job and just telling you imagine you're out of your job tomorrow in your trying to design your dream job. What does it look like from value stage space role location like comp you can think of trade to think about where you would thrive in our commitments is to tell you if function deliver that to you because if we don't think French and deliver that you because it's a competitive no matter what you'll leave two years from now and you know we would have Bush spend time and energy and would have not necessarily been a successful thing so I think maybe the one thing I've learned is changing your mindset and instead of being able to convince someone wife is so great just training your people to be very good at understanding deeply what people want built trust so that then you can tell them this is a good fit or this is not a good fit definitely yeah any interaction? That's more voluntary. Tensely to better outcomes with artists it also tends to resemble play a lot more so which brings us back to Lagos. Tolstoi goes and the LEGOS IDEA programme. Yeah I think I've always loved legos. The very first story of fronts and leaguers was I was in France in a co working space with another company called Air Coal and they were doing a phone system and they were pretty much the same staged as us like pre product market. Fit trying to get your first users and with the other issue whom sing tonight. We said the first by these dates. The company that has the highest number of user can liquidate wanting liquor store. I one I picked like the Volkswagen minivan and so I started building legos. And then what happened? After that was I moved the team here you know. No one really had friends or family here. So when activity? We're doing was bang. The biggest legal sets in building them in the office with there are feminists would come their kids would come in. We will build them and then it was report of our culture. You know maybe a your. We started every new empty. Could Start by choosing legal. Said they wanted in the legal store and then they would build it at France in that would be a good or for other people to build it with them and to get to know every new employee and cecile today. If you join from the first thing that will ask you to speak illegal in the liquor store and the vertical cool and I'm curious if you implemented anything like the Lagos idea programme like internally or actually sits chesapeake is for example when we think about learning and developments. It's like a legal for many different bricks and you can choose the brakes that you think are most relevant to you. And that's how we present our learning and development program now in the products. I think frontiers a tool. It's a good thing and a bad thing but I as a tool that can allow you to so much and you have so many different tools like she can create a commission you can treat enemies contrived efforts you can create. Collaboration workshops will but too many times we ask our users to figure that out themselves like you have this Lego box and bolt something and so one focus for us. This year is being able to provide templates so that if you want to achieve a certain thing like for example you want to have better `Solas just to make sure that you always relate to your customers in less than three hours. This is how you do it and we don't ask you to figure everything out so I think we may have pushed the legal energy be too far in that. That's really exciting. There's GonNa get plays out of the box that you can run business. The other thing I wanted to bring up and kind of like recognize that I think your selection of investors and partnerships in everything obviously very strategic you're partnering with companies that have tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of business clients. Already which reminds that when it comes to building partnerships or the strategic alliances with capital partners. So I think the way I think about an egg in specifically talk about investments. Sue The people that will invest in. Your company will deal with you forever. You know there are many ways you can always within a believe. It should not want that to happen. There are very few ways we can part ways with in histories and the thing that I've always asked for is at a given stage when I bring you investors and board like what do we need most and who is most likely to provide this value for example for our series B. Like I chose. Branch are secure for two different reasons for sequoia and for branch Sequoia was a really good institute is a very good brand and allows us to hire the best people. Brian has a ton of experience with companies that build categories new categories. So-called tricks Drug sprayed in a new category and they were horizontal products. They have you markets but there are challenges. How do you educate the market? Like how do people understand what you're doing when you're creating something brand new and you can say well it's just like salesforce? No nothing like anything so I think that was at the time. Brian had experience with it. And we want you to keep delays in this one of my other be joined with. I need to bring executives. I think executives are reassured. When you're back bay greats S- aquarium cigarette. That's how I made the district searcy. Two years later I felt lake. Brian at sequoia and they really helped us and would continue helping us in the coming years in so instead I was seeing more and more challenges with skill and I think building a company often people very different from one hundred very different from one thousand and I expected that the challenges I would see in the future would be skilled in. Zoom is a company. That has an a wonderful job at having a very strong business keeping an amazing culture and you use focus and happiness of their employees in their customers. And so. That's why I wanted Eric to be part of it. Adolescent I think has an incredible job as being very customer centric Veer PROC centric very imprecise entry quilt tricks. They've raised their S. wonders. Before they got they. They've built an amazing business. But at the same time. Naked to Ryan jared there at the DP carrying interviews. So I think I was seeing these challenges as we would grow in in. I wanted to be inspired by the best people in this way. I trust them. Sure and thank you so much for being generous with your time. Now you have to get going here in a minute. Any final thoughts. You want to leave for anyone. That's listening that's maybe ambitious about business working in the business or maybe they're operating one right. Now is an executive versa. While I think that a few things I mean I have so many bits l think about a few the first thing is working a new company are if you starting a new company. Stop thinking about whether it's normal. That is hard because it's hard no matter how successful your company's GonNa be or how successful you are going to be in that role into that will give you hit. Space number. Two is prioritize your mental health. Like you never know how big of a change it can lead to but the reality is in the same way that you exercise you know every week like you need to help your brain deal with whatever challenging things. They're going to deal with and so I would think whatever works for you you again meditation. Anything and then the last thing I would says I see a lot of people who want to do something risky to start a company or to this very early stage company but Cherkasov many risks. And you just have one life. It's like Donald is for you know what will be recent on your leaning profile. La- suggests good duets.

"Find a heart solution sue. How do they get there? And I will tell you how it manifest life. But how did they get there? I think for the first three years of my life. I spent eight hundred time. Working on front microphone. Spent time working on France. I don't remember having many weekends or vacations. And then my co-founder got sick was diagnosed with cancer in every single week. I was staying with him. It gets worse and worse two points that it had to go through Suny Chemo's and at that point I realized for the first time while first of all a part of me thinks that if you had not worked that much maybe would not have been whether it's right or wrong doesn't matter I believe. That's it's played a role in that bothered me and then. I also realized well like you might die in. I care about fron but at the end of the day like I care about him. Being happy healthy human being way more than I care about front. And when you're just doing your company is very hard to put things into perspective but when something shocking like this happen while you have literally Now like eighteen months after it was declared cancer free. So it's a story that ended really well but the thing that I always you know struggle with is. I'm very grateful that I got this experience to remain me. That's my company was one thing that I deeply cared about. But then there were other things like my family. My friends may health that were more imporant and Zam going. Well was a first step to the company being the best in the best environments that I could work on. That was true for me but it was true for every so in an hour I will do a presentation to the new court of increase that restrained front and I will. It's called all about front and they will tell the story of makeup under and I will tell them well at the end of the day like what I want you to do is first of all like take care of yourself lake. Take care of your whole. Spend time with your family because you were anew your best work if you have this great nation so this is one big thing that happened to me. I just wish that they didn't have to go through. This and I wish that no one has to go through something s painful to realize that that your life is just beyond the company. You're running thank you for sharing that story and I think it's so important because oftentimes we get caught in the new show the day to day things. Just keep going faster and faster and more to do after that happened and after you know. He went into remission and beat cancer. How did you re prioritize your life or continue to make changes so you could incorporate your family friends and you feel like you succeeded than getting a good balance between everything so I do believe I succeeded Ed but the thing that I realize is. It's a daily struggle meaning like it's very easy to do that well for a year and then you're could into like as you said so many urgent important things and then you forget about them into sue. What happened after that abuses? I had to change a lot about just how I was living so I started meditating. Every morning I started exercising more started eating more healthy. I started taking Pto when I was PTO. I didn't look at my computer or any work education. Later after that I started removing Almeida's foundations and then later I started deleting all my apps from my phone and a grey scale and so I feel like every year in a sense. I become more extreme but I don't make them more extreme. It's just like the thing that worked for me. Let me three years ago today but because I don't have this remainder like this shocking reminder. That happened to me three years ago. I just need to be a little more drastic in how I do them to me. That's the answer is yes. I think I still do a really good job at at having this balance. But maybe being a bit more extreme in what? I do to allow me to never full back in the trap of right to work and it sounds like you're being thoughtful about the pruning process of cutting things out. That aren't really serving you in Eliminating some of these stimulus right from your phone switching over to gray scale things like that because you're already getting information overload with your job so outside of work. You mentioned meditation sports laughing like that. I'm curious when it comes to books and learning and conversations with friends. How do you do most of your learning soon? It's interesting so I think I do learnings Three different ways. The first one is I learn a lot by doing and I think what matters is doing but then being very self-aware they you know you wonder if you're on a cell phone and they think very interesting topic is how do you work in your self awareness because everybody wants to be self aware but into. I've found so it's very hard to face but at the end of the day. Which will allow you to be. Self aware is understanding where your strengths and weaknesses are and being comfortable enough with your strengths. That you'll be able to admit your witnesses so like whether you work with therapist or a coach like I honestly don't think that you can figure it as yourself in or like someone Super Bass Lake your friends and husbands or wives or like can help but so I. I've worked with someone in order to help me understand better who I am and it's funny because I I would have described myself for years ago. Someone confident and self aware butts. You asked me today. After having worked many years with the person I've worked with like I feel like I know myself so much better so I think you never end this journey understanding yourself but so that's something that I really believe in is like working with a professional so that you work on your cell phone or an s that learning by doing is actually thing number two is. I've always had a group of people that I could learn from. And these people have evolved over time when we were a company within people than I had peers that that I could talk to and and being held I had this great mentor. Patrick Goodison from Stripe. Who was one of the first be devers in France because stripe this email transparency? Police you got so much value out of it into use one helping me a lot in the initial days then you know. Jared Smith Of tricks is someone. I met two years ago and then I started learning so much through him and he begins someone that and I think you know what you will learn and what you will want to learn at different stages of your journey is different and so the just making sure that you meet some New People and now the thing is I have a very close. It's not like I have fifty people that are helping me like it's impossible to keep them in the everything that's happening. And then the last thing is just either a watching contents. Like whether it's stokes at conferences or reading books or listening to podcasts. Is also something that I try to prioritize specifically like for example when I say I'm not working when I'm on PTO. I'm actually not doing any day to day work but I might read a book. Listen to but gas and that's the moment where my brain is more willing to do this because when I'm working till six PM and then I go back home. I don't think the first thing I want to read this business work. So that's the moment I do it. Vertical and when you're thinking about building culture in the bay area it's obviously a hyper competitive environment for talent you mentioned. You're getting ready to address some new employees. And are there any thoughts that you've had recently about culture building? And how is your view on that change throughout these years? Yeah I'm into since day one. I will always embrace the fact that he was competitive because given our mission is to create like the best place to work in Bushwick internally but also build tools that allow companies to have a great place to work. I thought well I'd rather be in the most competitive environment because like if I'm finished to create a place where you are happy to come to work every day and it's the most competitive then. Yeah Yeah so one in it's something. I've embraced maybe my learning on this because the radius is competitive. And you just have to deal with. That is maybe one mistake I might have done in. The past is filling like because it's competitive then what I need to do as a leader of organization is to make sure that we knew.

Italian architect Renzo Piano to design new Genoa bridge

"The Italian architect. Renzo piano will oversee the construction of a new bridge in Genoa following the collapse of the former stature that killed forty three. People tennis of Mathilde designed for the new structure for free and says his bridge will be completed in twelve months, and we'll lost for a thousand years. We'll Markle's Ivan Kavala joins us now from Milan Ivan the bridge collapsed in August. It was a terrible disaster. The loss of life, obviously, also economically. Yes, sir. That's true. In terms of the traffic going into general poor because it's a critical port for northern Italy. The estimates so far range between a billion and two billion euros in terms of lost revenue. So it's been an economic killer for for region that for longtime has been has been isolated in this bridge collapse. Only were. In that situation for Genoa and the Liguria region. So how political has this? We building process being. Well, yes, for sure politics have have entered into the fray here because you have different factions always within the government itself if you think about the governing coalition with the the populace five star. And then the the league, you know, the five star has been noted for their opposition to infrastructure projects the tavern project in the Nevada Sousa region. That would connect Leon with with Turin. There's been a lot of movement against these these projects and also a bypass highway by system in general itself, which was long discussed and would have been actually a great help. If if it had been in place, or at least part of it had been in place when when when the it collapsed, and so there are a lot of finger pointing there's also the minister of infrastructure. To know any himself who you know, has said that in the past old bridge wouldn't collapse and five star movement. Exponents been saying that, you know, there was a lot of gloom and doom that it wasn't true. And then of course, we we saw the tragedy in August. And so the government at least the five star component is trying to now say say face on that. But on the inside if you look at the the administration there, you have a mayor whose independent, but central right? And that's the first time there's been a center right leading the city since nineteen seventy five with the governor from fourteen Talia, and they together have been seen as a team. That's that's helped this process moving along. We're now we have this announcement that with Renzo piano design, we'll possibly in twelve months, see at least most of the bridge completed. I'm not sure if in twelve months, they'll be traffic running across. Those those lanes, but there is hope one can say Renzo piano himself is from Genoa. And of course, as we know he's designed some of the most famous buildings in the world the pump descend to the shot at the Whitney museum and so on. But this is his hometown. He told Laura Republica that what was needed was beautiful and safe bridge that we provide a rebirth and redemption for Genoa, this really isn't just another bridges at this a lot of emotion behind it. Definitely. I mean, you think about Renzo piano. He has done some projects if you think about the poor twenty co in Germany when the city hosted as a cultural capital ninety two he he has done something's there. But this this would obviously be a landmark project something along the lines of the buildings that you've mentioned before that fit. He is known for and really the city needs something uplifting right now because this was just a terrible tragedy. And also. Reinforced the relation of an area that has has long been impeded by this and could really be abuse economically. I mean think about the railway tunnel one of the companies said he improperly, which is now being handed the job to do the bridge design or the bridge construction. I should say they're involved in finally getting together, the railway tunnels that would link up general with with Milan. And this thing has been going along in delays since the early nineties and finally, proper, let's say construction and digging has has has begun in the last few years, and there's hope that in twenty twenty one if all goes, well, this would be a key link between Genoa all the way through Germany and Rotterdam and would help Genoa because for example, right now, see traffic with containers.

But Mathilde is and our decision was or you know, my thinking right was because I think I was wrong. I'm going to say this, and I'm gonna take credit for it. Because I think I was wrong. I felt like, you know, this was something that she you know, that she's going to have in her life, and and she needs to learn how to use it responsibly. But I don't believe that you can really do that. When you're when you're that young. I don't think you can use social media responsibly period. Yeah. I mean, it's it's such a messed up thing. If you really think about it and marketing. Social relationships. Yeah. Which is so insane. And I mean, yeah. So why are we on it?

"To you and she stayed in character like even when they were the cab because to have genuine reaction oh she worked hard you really chapter to some serious wow that's awesome i hats off to you lady i mean as ing jobs and it isn't amazing performance across the board i think are amazing i mean it's such an iconic character saying i mean the trench but when you say it in you know it you're just like you fucking know and like i've even referred to people as being like real trench will type you know you know exactly what i mean it's just like oh really tenth sucks all right so this is the part of the show where we give reviews and we use a popcorn scale the scale of one to ten popcorns ason how many popcorns would you give mathilde you can give it a half popcorn i believe in it all right yes i've heard yeah there's the colonel rating is i think perhaps if i were like you jack nights seen this as an adult i would oh jail differently of my reviews are in by nostalgia yeah yeah really enjoyed the the nostalgia of this and i also think that this is another tidbit that i didn't know but apparently mara wilson's mother passed away from cancer while they were shooting this movie and she so she's like a she was ten maybe when they shot this to be going through as and yeah and to still commit to this role sorry giving saying this and now we all have to give tens but she end like they all just got really close during this movie because of that and there's something about it that even just watching it and and even the low budget nece there's something it all contributes to like this feeling of like just goodnaturedness they wanted to make a sweet film they today all stay on just charm the whole thing is just charm so for that reason i think i have to give it nine nine have quan would you give it give it a six you give it a six now bear in mind is off for the very first.

"Second second but it's still early but what i'm saying is we we're seeing this movie through the perspective mathilde not through misiones so because of that we don't actually see matilda witness of victory we are we here are a of the green from yeah trunk will we hear about it and that's to me that's the issue yeah i agree that that is true what what she did but even just one moment beat the tossing of the kid or the chocolate eating thing or whatever just one moment where you're like oh wow we are in a horrible institution and there is no fighting back and then if matilda didn't strike back in some way even it was just a matter of like if after that happened and the the school fell silent and we're all looking up at the scary woman matilda said something like that's not right what you did and then she turns to her and says what did you say and then suddenly then she becomes a target then it's a sort of like oh no it's really going to get it she spoke from of innocence but that never really happens instead what happens is every time trench to get something of a victory like you said it gets pulled back and so because of that to me it just sort of wilkin weakens her like villainous so like if you compare it to like a movie like or book like one flew over the cuckoo's nest she is affected the same characters nurse ratchet nurse ratchet is horrible and she uses the institution to her advantage and that's like i would have liked to seen that to you see i want to see the kids complaining to the school board and the school board not believing them but i think they they say that they've talked to their parents about it in their parents but we don't see it that's my issue is the number one role of movie making his show and then there's always getting.

"He had a more creative solution to that problem my i like his is answer better make up something that's a romantic right so you're overall take away it was what about role dahlan about his his love of candy and food well he was certainly a quirky individual it certainly gives you a deeper understanding for the way that his creative life the way his literature was interwoven with his real life and the way that he would you had actors are test out characters on his kids which makes a lot of sense when you're writing for kids and i thought that was interesting and also moving to here and then later in that episode of the sport for i met up with this guy who has a youtube channel called binging with babich and he recreates dishes from movies and tv shows and he and i recreated the giant chocolate cake from matilda oh yeah for people who are familiar this is bruce bog trotter cash and the story mathilde is caught stealing the headmistress miss trunch bulls chocolate cake so as punishment she makes him eat an entire like car tyres is chocolate cake for the entire class is a great scene in the movie right right and and and he doesn't think he can do it in his to fall but then all the kids structure in the modern eventually he does it in mistrustful is horrified but there is aligned with mistrust bull presents him with the cake and is presented by the s the boarding school cook miss trench bull says the cook's owned blood and sweat went into this cake and so actually this guy andrew ray from vision with babich and i put drops of blood and sweat into the chocolate cake that we made in order to make it he's very concerned with the being as authentic as possible and it was delicious was was at the blood of the sweat it was just the ratio sweetness you know you know chris contrast very important recipes was a three drops of blood him the recipe in two drops the sweater how did they go with you i was like two drops of sweat three drops of blood iit was a big cake so you couldn't really tasted.
