"Our eldest, our most responsible, look like knows the alarm code and stuff was not here. And so I sat the alarm and the babysitter, I would tell her the alarm code, and I've told it to her before, but I don't think she remembered it. And no one was coming, so she needed, and I could always turn it off for my phone. But obviously she knows my phone number. But so my son got a terrarium. He's really into nature. He had gotten a terrarium, but he earned a long time ago, but I ordered it a long time ago when he was having after a period during which he earned this little terrarium thing. And by ordered it ordered an air quotes because I never actually placed the order. But he doesn't really understand how quick things are supposed to shit. So I can't be like, yeah, I don't know why PetSmart is. Thank you so long. And then don't piss me off because he would do shit, where I'd be like, dessert, this fucking terrarium and I don't want this dirt in my house. But the problem was he had been earned it a long time before, so I technically like, I couldn't take it back from or I shouldn't take a background, but I'd never actually placed the order. I'm just one of those times when you take a side street that you don't want me to direct you back to the mainstream. I know where I'm going. I know. This is my nimble, I'm nimble, I'm floating around. Okay, gotcha. And so. Well, that was one of the words that you said that you can't say around couples, but you can say it on the podcast. Listen, that's not true. I said it was nice that we could go out with couples where we could say things. Right. But I'm so sorry. She just said. I'm sorry. We don't have to edit some stuff out. But so anyway, so he was outside in our back filling the terrarium before our date. And it's big. So he's like carrying it in and out the screen door and we have a cat remember he's not an outdoor cat. And definitely loves the cat or son loves the cat more than anyone. It's like his emotional support cat and he's obsessed with it. It's his brother. Which is weird. But anyway, that's how he feels about it. Except for that's how I thought he felt about it until this weekend. What'd you say, babe? I said the cat loves me more than anyone else. Love language is deeds of service, and I'm the only one.

Now their concentrating on obesity, companies like Eli Lilly and Pfizer are following novo Nordisk with drugs that mimic a hormone called GLP-1. Which are initially diabetes drugs that we've had for the last 15 years or so, but in the last few years are being repurposed and having a renaissance in their use for treatment of obesity. Doctor Omar el Kawai is an endocrinologist at Mayo Clinic health system. People tend to feel more satisfied, less hungry, and then it also slows down the stomach, which means that food will last longer in the stomach and patients than people feel more full. People taking these drugs for type two diabetes are now competing with patients asking for them to lose weight.

"What's going on with your pet today? Actually, it's not nothing is going on with my pet at some stuff that we've heard about and I listened to you last week and you talked about it a little bit, but dynamite, it's got a website. And my question was this is we've feed our dogs what is called nature's recipe. And we get it from PetSmart. They say that the dynamite is supposed to be really good. It gives insights and all this stuff. So does the dynamite for starters does it work? Is it true what they say because it's pretty expensive. And does it take the place? I mean, can you actually feed your dogs? Per state. Junk lower quality dog food. If you're feeding them the dynamite okay, some good questions there, Kelly. And the first thing is I'll be honest. I am not on the dynamite bandwagon. I'm a little bit concerned about any product that makes such grand claims that it's going to cure allergies and all of these type of things. So can you feed a bad food and make up for it with a supplement? No, you can not. And just like with people, if you don't eat a good balanced diet, popping those vitamins every day does not make up for that. Same thing is true for our pets. If you've got a good quality diet, I believe that that is the heart of the nutrition question here. And then there are supplements will sometimes add in. So I'm not opposed to trying a supplement for the benefit of fatty acid supplementation or maybe a pet that might have skin problems. We might look at some zinc supplements, things like that. So there may be perhaps that benefit from this, but I would definitely run away from any product that tells you that it's going to be a cure all. And that's just my honest opinion. Have I used it on my own pets? No, but I feed them a good diet and you know they get their fatty acids every day and you know I try to stay on top of their medical problems in that way. Okay, so then what you're really saying is it's the fail safe of all times is if it sounds too good it's too good. Yeah, you know, it's kind of a snake oil salesman there and like I said, there are definitely some pets that may benefit from it, but you know the cost, the expense and I just can't put my heart behind a product that really claims to cure something such as

"I talked months ago about the scandals engulfing the trucking industry. The trucking industry is severely short of labor. Gosh, isn't that a theme? I was talking about the airlines being sure to workers in every category industry after industry short. Trucking, especially short, because people become truck drivers overwhelming number more than half drop out of truck driving within the first year because it turns out to be not the job they were hoping for. And I talked how the truck driver training programs have been having the truck drivers where you go to a particular long haul trucking company and they say, hey, we'll train you for free to be a trucker. And what people aren't aware is they're signing an agreement that if for whatever reason truck driving doesn't work out for you, that free training now costs you a ton. And so you don't have a job and you owe thousands upon thousands of dollars. Well, now according to market watch, this same practice is happening to people who already work somewhere and an employer will say, hey, we'd like to promote you to this other job. We're sending you to training for the next so many weeks. And then you go to training and suddenly you're making more money and you're in this new job where you got the promotion and then let's say you hate the job or they hate you, you're not good at it, whatever. And they demote you or they terminate you. What then happens? Well, unfortunately, employers are not behaving ethically in this area and you're already in the existing employee and it's standard and normal that people working for a company are sent to additional training. But a number of companies are having you sign a document that says that if the training doesn't work out for you, they're then going to Bill you for the employer provided free training. There's a lot of fuss going on about PetSmart. PetSmart is way short of groomers. So PetSmart for cashiers and other employees will say, hey, we'd like to offer you an opportunity to work in our grooming department because pet grooming is a very lucrative area for independent pet groomers and for the various pet chains to have grooming operations. And so pet smart employees will say, okay, I'd like a promotion and they go to the training and then according to market watch,

"Or minutes If you can get your food in your groceries that quickly why can't you get that makeup that you ordered for your knees or that basketball you ordered for your son The simple answer is delivery needs couriers A whole workforce of people not only to pack orders but also drive or walk them to a bunch of shoppers at a bunch of places Giants like Walmart and of course the Amazon have been cracking this puzzle with their own fleets of drivers Target bought delivery company shipped But for most retailers their own logistics operation is a bit fanciful Like my random suggestion here Maybe like a really glamorous robot that just drives around the city I like the way you think Prom and bot is the chief digital officer at Alta beauty which recently struck a partnership with DoorDash In 6 cities the two are testing same day delivery of beauty supplies from store to your door timed exactly for the holiday rush It could either just be you know I can't wait to have something in my hands and go try it on and I usually go to the store but I don't feel like I can do that right now so this is a great alternative It could be that I've got an event and it's time constrained and I don't have time to wait for even two to three days The target audience sounds and actually is pretty niche This kind of urgent service is not free Ulta for example is charging almost $10 for same day drop off But in big cities the market is growing This year DoorDash partnered with PetSmart Uber teamed up with bye bye baby Rhodey owned by UPS made a deal with abercrombie and Fitch Instacart has been delivering for Dick's Sporting Goods For stores it's a way to make money when fewer people might visit in person says Karen Giroud professor at Cornell University It's like what played out with restaurants at the start of the pandemic He says for drivers it's a new option for when people don't need as many rides or the lunch and dinner rush subside for food orders For the delivery apps it's a way to grow and try to resolve their fundamental challenge Companies like Uber or Instacart have yet to deliver consistent profits The problem is none of them including the big ones can not yet make money It's really expensive to pay someone enough that they agree to sit in a car or bike around to bring you that basketball or a sweater or a few makeup brushes And more stores means more scale The more you deliver the cheaper each delivery gets As you do more things each individual things becomes cheaper because you can bundle deliveries You can put more things in the same route All the tricks that become ever so important in this whirlwind season of last minute shopping and shipping Elina salute NPR news When deka Della was writing her first speech as the mayor of south Portland Maine she went looking for an inspirational quote from Desmond Tutu or Mother Teresa and then her mom called her from Mogadishu She reminded me a poem or prayer that she recited for me when I started high school I may have worked out My dear daughter May God give you the gift to remain in this world longer I beg God for you to be the leader of many ethnicities Fled Somalia 30 years ago as it approached Civil War This month she was unanimously elected mayor by her fellow city councillors in south Portland and now she leads a city that is about 90% white as the country's first Somali American mayor I asked her how she thinks about that It's all about the relationship building and community building I have been doing that for the past decade and so you know volunteering in soup kitchens sit on different boards You know I'll get into know people in all walks of life from folks who are homeless to folks who are in the legislature So people know me I said she's not a mayor for me She's my friend which really makes me humble by that So now that you are mayor what's at the top of your agenda My agenda is the same as the city council agenda I don't have anything different than what we already said for ourselves And one of them is to bring diversity equally and inclusion in our city to hire more people of color You know to make sure that we have women in our leadership positions right Another goal of ours is to increase affordable housing We have young people who can not afford in this city That is ridiculous That doesn't make no sense Another goal that we have is to mitigate climate crisis right We are a coastal city And ten years 20 years 30 years from now we don't know whether we are going to be underwater or not Is there a specific experience you can tell us about from all of that volunteer work and paid work that you did that you take with you into your new role as mayor that informs the way you're approaching this new job Yeah I think one positive thing is that always always connect with people In 2016 we had a really slammed phobia that happened in our state and in our city And for that we created a Muslim and non Muslim women composition if you will And I opened up and I said and it's gonna say will not be held against you Please say what you have in your heart and we will learn from each other right So one woman stand up a white woman said that I think all Muslims are terrorists And instead of calling her out we call her in said come on let's talk about it What do you think How did you hear this So what happened is that woman ended up invited us in her church Next one When you look back now at your journey to the U.S. 30 years ago how do you feel about the distance you've traveled Long And you know I never thought of running for office ever I did not even dream about it But by getting involved in politics by getting involved in community work by getting involved in volunteering I found out that if I don't do this who's going to do it If I do start doing it maybe others will follow That is deka de lock new mayor of the city of south Portland.

"My home city. Okay. Well, the things that we would definitely want to avoid is you mentioned a lot of the different meat things. Many of those we will want to avoid. The things we use in a pinch for a pet that's on a diet like SO would be eggs, we can use eggs or chicken. But we stay away from a lot of the heavier meats. And you mentioned vegetables and fruits and so there are some fruits and vegetables we can use that are appropriate along with this diet. I'll often recommend bananas, melons, green peas, cauliflower, those kind of foods would be appropriate. Some of those foods might not be a bad thing, but I would hate for you to be out on the road and rely on those food items as your main source of a diet. A large bag. The super large bag, and I'm gonna put them out. Probably about 30 pounds on the so I won't be out, but it just caught me unawares this time and one other solution that I might recommend and we use this solution for folks around us that travel is you can ask your veterinarian for either prescription card or a written prescription for that food. And if you're heading through another community. And if you have a written prescription for that food, you may very well be able to buy that at a veterinary office, but you can't just go in and say, hey, I need that SO food. Most places will say we're not comfortable selling that to you unless we knew you really need this for your pet. So that might be another little trick to try.

I'm in Q one, Illinois in a freezing weather. Oh. Oh, well, we'll send our warm wishes your way. What's going on with your pet today? Actually, it's not nothing is going on with my pet. It's some stuff that we've heard about. And I listen to you last week and you talked about it a little bit. But dynamite, it's got a website kind of like dot com.

It's a very replicable brand. They say that the dynamite is supposed to be really good. It gives insights and all this stuff. So does the dynamite for starters does it work? Is it true what they say because it's pretty expensive? And does it take the place? I mean, can you actually feed your dogs per state, junk lower quality dog food? If you're feeding them the dynamite? Okay, some good questions there Kelly. And the first thing is I'll be honest. I am not on the dyno bandwagon. I'm a little bit concerned about any product that makes such grand claims that it's going to cure allergies and all of these type of things. Right. So can you feed a bad food and make up for it with a supplement? No, you can not. And just like with people, if you don't eat a good balanced diet, pop in those vitamins every day does not make up for that. Same thing is true for our pets.

"Work. But increasingly more and more retail outlets have sort of de skilled that work and sort of made it where your interactions with customers are going to be more brief. If anything, they're kind of like keeping you from meeting your quotas. You have all these aggressive quotas. So, so suddenly Now you're not having this like fun, Cool personal interaction. You're just sort of going down the line of people and maybe they're mad at you. Maybe they're mean to you, especially in the pandemic. Maybe they're yelling about a mask. So I think we've kind of seen this. This shift from, you know, from retail, maybe being a more fulfilling option for people to a place where people might be leaving to get more fulfilling work. Well, they're really having that personal connection. For your article. Um, you spoke to a person from Texas named Krista. Can you tell us what conditions they were forced to work under as a quote safety precaution. Yeah. So crystal worked at Petsmart, Um, in the winter of, you know, 2022 2021, which, if you'll remember was, you know really terrible time around the country for Covid risks, um, and worked as a dog bay there so in a grooming salon, sort of in the back of a PetSmart store. And the way Christa described it, as like a steel tube, basically like this room was really sealed off to keep like the dog hair out to keep the noise out. But of course that's you know, one of the worst environments for Covid she they described being sort of stuck in there. The doors are shut all the time. Some of their co workers are not wearing masks, just feeling really unsafe and they ended up. They ended up quitting for those reasons. Now, I should say we asked PetSmart about this. They didn't respond specifically to our questions about grooming salons. But they said They take workers' safety. Seriously? Um, but I think for Krista, they just felt you know this job is not worth it. I just truly don't feel safe here. Let's take another call with their story Common in Metuchen. You're on w N Y C. Hello, Carmen. Hi. Good. Can you hear me? I hope so. Yep. We got to Okay, Great. I'm actually was a professional worker working as a working in fund development. And I still do some of that work, but I was also working as a cashier at a Larger grocery chain here in New Jersey, and I've actually done some career switching. I'm kind of still in the midst of switching. What I've been doing right now is that I've actually got Several, uh, places where I work, and what I appreciated about my shake up is that I've been enjoying flexibility. I like having a more flexible schedule. I did a lot of work from home working on my computer. And I got to spend more time in my home that I've ever been able to spend and my entire work life and and really got to do a lot of things. I really enjoy that. And so for me. Shake up has given me a got a stronger sense of autonomy, a stronger sense of what I bring to the table, a better sense of negotiations about what it is I'm looking for, so I appreciated that. The other thing that I wanted to mention, though, is that I'm still concerned about the power dynamics between employers and employees, even in the midst of the shake up because You know, I think you guys just talked about about the power dynamics between employers and employees, even in the midst of the shake up because, you know, I think you guys just talked about pets Mart, but Place is still you know, with their with their mo wages and environments. There's still a lot of ways in which a lot of, uh workers are abused, and I experienced that when I was at the grocery store, um the other thing that I experience and I'll just wrap up with this is that while I was working at the grocery store, I knew Many more people and I was doing this during Covid. Many more people were making much more money who are not working as I was working during Covid. And so I also had a challenge with how The support money that was available for people during that time. It wasn't available for people who had low paid wages. We got to stimulus for one check, but in terms of unemployment, I would have made much better money being unemployed. And I was working at a low wage job. Did you resent some people? Who you may have known who were taking the unemployment option while you are still going to your grocery store job. I didn't resent them because it wasn't their fault. What I resent it was our government and how we do things. And I resented the fact that I didn't think it was clearly thought through. I thought that during that time, even though we were we were working during Covid. I thought we should have gotten a little bit of stimulus money, Maybe not 600 a week. We should have received something rather than just a one check. I received the $2 for a 12. An $11 minimum wage. I received $2. I was getting $13 an hour. Well, that did not compared to $600 a week where I forgot how many weeks that was. That was very paltry. Comparatively. So I thought the beginning of the stimulus, how it was handled was very was very shoddy and unorganized. And that thought out at all. Carmen. Thank you So much for your call in that story That's very illuminating. And Anna North from Vox. This goes to a part of your article because you wrote to make retail jobs better in the long run. The country needs to make big changes, and it starts with a higher minimum wage. Does that relate to the story that we just heard from Carmen? Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I think Carmen's story shows you know how low we just really are in a lot of places And a lot of these big companies, you know? And including, you know, even some places did sort of offer hazard pay during the pen during the height of the pandemic, you know, maybe giving a $2 an hour $3 an hour bump, but You're starting from really low that's still kind of low and a lot of times they rolled them back. Um, you know, and something else that you brought up was sort of the idea that maybe Amazon can offer this kind of signing bonus now but go back to lower wages later. I think that's a real our real concern. Frankly, that we're seeing, um, is that you know, a lot of places are offering signing bonuses, and they might be able to get folks to switch jobs. And that one time bonus means a lot for someone that is not making very much money. But then it's gone right And you don't make a higher hourly wage. You're not set up for raises down the line. You don't have the confidence of knowing Okay. For the months or years that I'm at this job. I'm going to make X dollars an hour. And so I think what's concerning is that even though we've seen workers taking back their power to a degree, you feeling like maybe I have choices. Maybe I can quit my job. We're not seeing big wage growth, so we're not necessarily seeing workers getting a job that pays them a lot more. And I think in order to really see that what a lot of folks are telling me is we need these protections. We need number one, a higher minimum wage. Maybe I made a mistake at the beginning of the segment when I said, uh, this rush to quit retail jobs wasn't necessarily so much about the stories. You go food shopping in but other kinds of retail like we heard the caller who worked in a pet store. We heard the caller who worked in a clothing store. But maybe it was also grocery. You tell me. Yeah, I do think we've seen quits and grocery. I mean groceries interesting because it's one of the most highly unionized parts of retail. Um, you know, there's It's not all by any means. But there's a lot of grocery store workers that are covered by unions, and that gives them a little bit of bargaining power that gives them a little bit more control over their wages in their conditions. That doesn't mean their wages in their conditions are great, but you know, they're able to put more pressure on their employers. Um But we've still seen a lot of folks leaving that sector, leaving leaving grocery for other things, or even just switching, you know, between grocery chains. And as we continue to talk about the shakeout in retail as the pandemic eases, with 650,000 workers in the retail sector, quitting their jobs in April alone, according to stats published in The Washington Post. My guest is Anna North senior correspondent at Box who wrote an article called The Big Job Exodus Might not be all It's cracked up to be. And Derek in du Mont. New Jersey, You're on W N Y. C. Derek.

But listen there's a reason the stocks up over eleven hundred percent of the last five years still feels like it's got plenty of room to grow with around twenty million total college students in the us today. so what. i'm seeing from. Check door dash posted record revenue in the second quarter but the actual loss for the quarter was bigger than expected. Ron jordache was down after the bell on thursday but on friday shares recovered. I'm assuming their guidance for the full year probably helped yet but it was also cautious. The quarter was very strong right with sales up. Eighty three percent total orders up sixty nine percent that's driven by increased order frequency as well as new customer growth international orders interestingly grew substantially faster than domestic but expenses more than doubled as the company increased investments to build out nonmeal categories a very important part of their growth strategy to expand internationally and to boost driver recruitment in a labor market. That's very tight Management said they intend to increase that level investment in these categories in the second half of twenty twenty one so that speaks to your comment about guidance which i think was somewhat cautious based on the increased costs that they're seeing they've added over five thousand new third party convenience stores as part of their growth initiative. They launched albertson in the grocery category. They added petsmart so moving into many things other than just restaurants. They launched in japan. That's their third international market behind canada and australia. But they did report a loss of one hundred million dollars versus a prophet twenty three million During the pandemic when business was was gangbusters so guidance for q three again included a seasonal decline. That shouldn't be surprising to people But it doesn't create also include increased levels of investments for those news categories and those international markets. So they're they're they're spending to grow which is essential but that probably will take a bite out of profitability for awhile. Second quarter revenue for the trade desk was double what it was a year ago. Good guidance as well but when you look at shares of the trade we jason. it's almost like investors. Couldn't make up their mind. They were down after the report. Then it recovered. It's basically flat for the week. Yeah there was a spate of upgrades. The day after the release and understand why i mean to me. This is one. I'm a remain very very happy owner because it just continues to be one of the most attractive ways to invest in the advertising opportunity and it really all comes down to the connected. Tv for the trade desk to that point management noted on the call moffitt nathan recently reported that the ad supported video on demand market will for four point four billion dollars in two thousand twenty two around eighteen billion dollars as early as twenty twenty-five so clearly a lot of opportunity there particularly as you see all of these these ads support platforms disney Pl- hulu i mean peacock discovery plus all of these different ad-supported platforms Contributed the trade desks success revenue more than doubled from a year ago over two hundred eighty million dollars for the quarter non gap earnings per share followed suit customer retention remains robust over ninety five percent during the quarter as it has remained for the last seven years so these guys are consistently doing something very well clearly and they do see that advertising video on demand market that's going to outpace the growth of the subscription video on demand market over the coming years and i think from a global perspective. That's important to remember that. That really is the nature. I think of this of this advertising video-on-demand market That's where the opportunity is in. So they're seeing plenty of big brands spending. They saw the number brands any more than one. Million dollars in connected. Tv on their platform already more than doubled from a year ago and the number of advertisers spending over one hundred thousand dollars has also doubled so they just continue to bring more and more customers in because they've got what they want in that market opportunity. Then i think the trade desk is a business. You need to keep a close eye. On last month's shares of boston beer fell twenty five percent after a disastrous second quarter earnings report but fear not shareholders boston beer teaming up with pepsi to create an alcoholic version of mountain dew. Boston beer will make it. Pepsi will deliver and market the product ron heart mountain. Dew is expected to hit the shelves early next year. Are you interested. The phrase flavored malt beverage kind of makes me gag a little realizing. But but i've never been a big mountain dew fan in the first place Just the the flavor doesn't sit right with me. I feel this is more a novelty item. Then something that's going to storm the category and helped boston beers heart shelter beverage business but i could maybe just be a little cynical about this and and maybe you guys have a different opinion. But i don't see this. You know changing the direction of boston. Beer coke has their Hard version of their toshiko sparkling water. So this is pepsi's entry into into the into the space. I'm not convinced. I dunno jason. I get why both these companies are doing it particularly boston beer with you. It feels like boston beer. Might need to change his name to boston. Beverage given that. It is not so much a beer company anymore. Yeah i mean. I think novelty is probably the right word ron of feels to be kind of like kfc crocs or something. I mean is this really what the masses want. Probably not certainly. Don't don't mind giving it a shot. But i don't know that we'll be seeing them breaking these sales results out in any future quarters. Do we want it to be green. Is that important to the novelty aspect of this. I mean this day and age. Everybody's so focused on on health and wellness. I mean you take those colors that make it clear. Maybe maybe that's the selling point if you keep it clear. The companies are splitting the cost.

I'm gonna make you fight. But it's okay but i gotta talk about the muzzle laws. These laws that are being introduced in a nerve states to talk about critical race theory now critical race theory. I must say to begin with I hadn't heard the term probably year ago. Now i hear it every day. I think americans are just starting to hear it and i think no one knows exactly what it is. They know what has something to do with race and some kind of a theory. How would you describe it. And then we'll ask. How would you describe. What is chris christie. I will admit that. I read a lot of critical race. Theory and law school. So you know the work of derek bell or john or genes defined one knows but you and six other people right so what matters is what is it. what is it practically. It's being taught in schools or some form of yes there's there's a certain sort of crystallized version of it. That is a lot less complex than critical race. Theory actually is but critical race theory essentially argues that racism is baked into all the systems of american society and that any sort of neutral system is in fact a guys for racial power and so the argument is made by derek bell for example that brown versus board of education is an argument. He made in nineteen ninety-one that brown versus board of education was actually a way for the white to leverage its own power wasn't an attempt to end segregation in public schools. Even things that are purportedly good in terms of race songs. They uphold these broader systems. Things like capitalism or things like the meritocracy. These things are actually just guises for power and so what that boils down to sort of practical terms is all disparity equals discrimination if you can see any stat or black people are under performing white people. This means the system was set up for the benefit of white people and white people have a duty to tear down these systems in order to alleviate the racism that's implicit in those systems when it comes to schools what this tends to boil down to is kids who are white have experienced privilege because the system was built for white people and we have to change the standard right now. Okay well so malcolm utah me your different. Oh i agree with everything he said. Oh great you being honest in defining of what. It's like to be black american right. That is i mean.

And then from there, we move into the visual design plan. Sometimes we in our industry, we kind of talk about what all of what we do and sometimes when I try to summarize, I say, hey, it's the right person finding the right information at the right time. You know? And in another way to think about it is who are the people? At least a user experience as it pertains to a website experience. You could say, who are the people that are coming to the website? What are they looking for? And how do we make it easier for them to find? I mean, when you think about most website experiences, especially in B2B or in a business context, there is someone who has arrived in their customer journey. And in a place of awareness, I have something that I need to do. And if you think about a user experience, you can think, okay, I'm trying to do something. So a user experiences their entire experience of doing that thing. So if I'm a marketing manager in my VP of demand generation or the CEO, comes to me and says, hey, look, we want to redesign our website. The first thing they're going to do is say , okay, let's go. And look around and see. Maybe they've been referred, maybe they have a couple of folks. They've worked with in the past, regardless. They go searching in organic search, or they go to visit websites. And it's that entire experience front back. That is the user experience.

So you have at the top, you have a business trying to accomplish a goal. They are trying to sell a service. So these are the objectives of the website. And then you have all the opposite side of that same coin. You have the user needs. A user is trying to accomplish something. So it kind of always starts there. And then you just move your way through greater levels of fidelity until you get all the way to the visual, the visual plane, if you will. But as you move through it, you think about, okay, well, on the side of the organizational needs, there's functionality requirements. So if you have a multi location franchise, like PetSmart, it might be, okay, we're going to need to find a store functionality. So we're going to be in considering the business to consumer. It's going to be mobile probably. So people are going to be on their phone at a soccer game. And so we're going to need to make sure that we use GPS of the mobile device in order to automap people's locations so they don't have to type in their zip code..
