"I used to love be booksellers. When did you do there. Oh lord you're going back to nineteen eighty you know my my parents and family moved down there with my dad. Got transferred and It was as close by. I a job there. You know and ended up for the tunnel. Always there Started out in the back room. Receiving the books getting them all the labels and stickers and stuff and putting them out and then got beyond the register in that kind of stuff you know so ended up stocking and working that i love being down there because it was right down the street from the windmill dinner theater and a lot of actors came through doing plays there and a few of my she stop in the store to buy some stuff excellent but i got instilled in reading. Men was watching spenser for hire series on television. And one of the ladies that worked percent if you love the show who should read the books to read in the books and behold from their own. Isn't it interesting. How things often start with television I know that my love's mystery started with watching honey west way back in the day now going back more. Yeah but yeah. It's just funny. I'll have like that. You know when i got into reading rubber parker than but display in john d. Macdonald's just went from there and you know is started loving whatever. I can get my hands on all. Great stuffs well Tell us about arthur nikai. He's an interesting character. An excellent reign of former member of the special ice unit and a native american correct. Exactly how did you come up with this character not to mention his wife. Who's a news reporter. I thought that was interesting. Please tell us more. Sure i mean i. I started thinking about developing i. I took a two week vacation out there. And i traveled the route. That's in the book. So whatever i saw one that way dictated into a tape recorder and came back and transpose. It all down. You know this sort of developing characters and backstories the characters and I stumbled across. I wanted to be different in a lot of ways and other writers out there writing about that and not not as far as police goes or whatever it may be you know. But i developed arthur nikai based on my love for our kalashnikov by the native american flute player. And at the time. One of my friends. Where i worked a million years ago. It seems like now Whose first thing with arthur. So i liked the way that rain together. So i use that they'll to character that As far as his. Wife sharon goes. I actually was texting back and forth in the mornings with one of the local reporters in the nbc station here and chicago and Wanted to ask her some questions about you. Know what you give up to have this life you have. I wanted to make her real and things that happen In their life once you have that job while things you don't get to do You miss a lot of birthdays. Anniversaries you're always on the air doing something you know so. She helped out a lot with that. And i developed that curator of the other ones of jake. Bill cody which is loosely based on my grandfather large barrel chested man. You know With that so i start molding these people into what i i have now needs really interesting the way your travels informed your fiction writing. So yeah i. What was the whole plan to do that. Because you know you can't just look online and find pictures and things and do things and men do searches. you have to be there. And that's what i found out a long time ago. I told on hillerman once at the her father helped me understand the importance of descriptive sentencing. You know surrounding sect place I think robert parker helped me develop a dialogue kind of conversations in books. So i use those along with that. I had to be there. You have the smell that you have to see to taste it and feel the heat feel the cold in order to convey that to the reader in the book and a lot of people who have read my books feel like they're right there in the situation in the area. I love that.

"He's more relaxed in his performance. Maybe it's because hey you know. This is mcgann five years on with a little bit more mileage from the tv movie. Maybe he's had some time to think about how he wanted to do his doctor. Maybe he wanted to do a little differently from the tv movie but But he seems more comfortable. He seems more relaxed and as a result. You know. I think is much more entertaining. He gets some great lines in this In once he you know he's introduced. Charlie they bump into each other There's an instinct chemistry there that's been just really is the core essence of this story and you see how great they're going to be as travelling companions going forward and You know 'cause charlie. She had stowed away on the are wanna one because he wanted some excitement in her life. She wanted to avoid this date that she was You know this guy that she was supposed to to meet up with and so she stays away after kind of Getting this other. Guy named simon birch for taking his uniform and posing as him as a as one of stewards on the are what a one. That's actually sneaks aboard but she's quickly found out and That's where the fun in chaos ensues and you know one of the points you made charles is think about it. This isn't a character that he had been doing three or four years and then the show got cancelled and brought back. He had done one tv movie right. So this is not a law. Essentially essentially a four episode story from the classic end to to be able to get back in character so quickly to as i use it so smooth. He feels like the doctor he doesn't like. Oh here's another character playing this guy i mean he feels like the doctor and It's just really good to see how quickly he did that. and it does make it a comfortable like you have that comfort of a really good like like a beloved novel beloved movie goer or like. I love this tv show. I'm back in this. Tv show and i get to watch it. I'm seeing all my old characters and old friends in this. Is roy or like or like a series of books where you've read a few a couple and you kind of know what you want to see or want to read about and you get the next book in the series and it's everything that you wanted and then some way i kinda feel about this. I think that is the perfect example because I used to read a lot of the houston every year every month. Whenever there was a star. Trek novelization i picked it up and it was like it's it's comfort reading. You didn't have to think very hard. Nearly near the was written by peter david. If you're me yes exactly yes.

Santa Carolina. Reserva? Cabinet sobbing young from Chicago States in Jakarta Valley in Chile. And, the vintages twenty eight. And it's a really really Nice Cabernet. Chilean cabinet China for me splits the difference between Bordeaux and. California has got the good right fruit of California. And its sleek and lean like Gordo and you put them together. Good. And this is a seven. Forty nine set wine. I wasn't the Internet and it's it's not an expensive wine anywhere, but it's ten to thirteen dollars elsewhere. Seven fifty for cloudy Capita Sauvignon is really crazy. Because Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine that you expect. Good. Barrel slavery. Now I don't think this one had any oak barrels. There are other ways to get the oak flavoring in. They I think they said in the tasting Meltzer had contact with. And contact with. Isn't necessarily hope bureau? But whatever they did it works it tastes really really. Really Drinks. Baba's price tag. I'm going to take a separate now. This is. No issues really good tasting very well made. Cabernet Sauvignon it's sleek. It's leaning tasty. Got A great. No the Scott got kind of a little bit of a complicated Flavor profile it's not. It's not like the hugely expensive one where there's layers but the applications. And Yeah I mean Santa Carolina. Has Been Around for one hundred, forty, five years. They know what they're doing and they were one of the video wineries it got destroyed in that two, thousand, ten earthquake. I don't recall that in Chile and they had to rebuild and they did by twenty twelve. And they took the time to invigorate wiring everything else I think last year they were delaying winery the year. So you know from the. From the ashes comes, Victorino. Deals. Another SIP. Tastes grape does not tastes like a seven fifty one again. You. Expect a certain amount of flavoring and improper. Cabernet Sauvignon. We read plans and stuff. You know that's that's open to interpretation but Cabernet. People expect a very specific thing. This delivers. And that's really nice and it's got good grades estate vineyards. They have many states from two states. And expensive winds. Estate Vineyards. Means exclusive. This just means that they had control the grapes. which is a good thing because year after year they're working with those grapes they know. What to do in good years bad years great years anything else they have experienced. So. This is a really good wine The NAME ONE MORE TIME FROM COSCO Senate Carolina's. Valley. Reserve a Cabernet Sauvignon twenty eight, hundred eighteen. I, read that James Suckling, who is the premier wine? Critic right now Robert. Parker junior is a retired nowadays, he was the king for years and. James ducklings take over that role. He gave the white ninety three points I mean. Supposedly. That's what they said on the on websites. I. Didn't actually hear it for him. Ninety three points for seven dollars ninety nine cents Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. Is Crazy. Good. So there you go. I liked it tastes great. It just drinks well above its price tag if you like, Cabernet you WANNA everyday why it's hard to beat this one.

"Rockstars. Let's go to Mark lack. Our guest today is in Nancy O'Connell. She is the co founder of wine crashes. It's great to have you here. Thank you. It's good to be here. So what does your company do obviously, it's related to wine? We are wine retail company secondary market, and we have taken the premise of hot wire in Priceline applied the model to wine. So forgive me, a contextual example, try to secure the lowest price in the market, and actually we do secure the lowest price in the market and withhold producer information. So that all the consumer knows is that they're buying a wine. That's rated from either wine. Spectator Robert Parker or media and also bird hound, and that it's rated from them? And what rating, it is what price, it's at in the critic tasting note, so that they can make their own decision. Is that something that they're willing to try? So is this solely a website or an app? What is it? We are solely a website right now. Of course, I think huger staff that we have an app or something. But right now we also have a wine club. Okay. So basically, your guys business model is solely getting people onto a website looking for the best. Price one of their favorite choice. How do you get these people online strategy? Media has totally been our Goto. So, yeah, that's about it. And you're trying to get people out that way. Do you guys have anything cooler creative or tests, or quizzes or surveys, or incentives that you guys don't on social media actually did in the very beginning? We've since kind of fizzled out a little bit, but has it sailing? It's going to be coming back. We had really good response rate with it, and we really enjoyed putting it all together. What was it? And quizzes quizzes, it was kind of fun to testicles knowledge on, you know, US versus friends. Like actually yield like a return actually did try to disturb a generators Magen come. Yeah. So it was a lot of fun really in the very beginning, when we take Liz, bringing in people to the website, and so it was very cool to be able to see this quiz, generated this amount. If people come to one site checking it out. So what's been the hardest part about actually gaining wine? Crasher started up on the ground. So for us breaking people out of their norm of buying from retailers that they're usually accustomed to kind of the new premise of not being able to see through the producer is on. Kenneth challenging them to read something in think, is something I'm willing to try. So I think that's really been our biggest hurdle. Why did you actually come up with wine crash, by the way? I love the concept advocate with a lot of different people because I drink wine at some point in your life where you become a wine enthusiast. And so I love what you guys you up to. But I want to know how to actually created was it because you're just looking around and shopping for wine, and he saw like the concepts of Priceline connected the two or how did you come up with the idea? Totally take claim for the concept at all. Co-founder company needs missing even I actually had worked together. I know. He and I had worked together for a high end retail company called is. And he was the CFO there. And we kind of hit it off just in general. I left the company to go to a different winery. Check things out and actually work a harvest. Is what I really wanted to do at the time then so neat ended up leaving the company as well. And it was something that came to him like in an elevator when day was sitting there joining Elliott or shower in an elevator going somewhere and he looked at his wife and he goes. I mean, why can't you sell wine the way yourself hotels? And it was it sounds so on basic. And so simple in a little bit demeaning, especially for the wine community that what he was hitting on with something really unique can hand too, when he told me, I was at first skeptic. But now firm believer. So you guys have basically Priceline. The wind industry co of line crasher, Nancy O'Connell is joining us. We're here to inspire, inform and connect a community of entrepreneurs, I'm Mark lack on Business Rockstars so Nancy. You guys took the Priceline model and have been disrupting the wine industry with it. What are you most excited about the future coming up in your journey? I think the possibilities right now. We stayed pretty true to what we really want to do, which is just have it be like a price sign in, like a hot wire. But there's so much potential for growth there in changing certain things in kind of experimenting because it's so open that way. Get so excited about what could be it's really exciting because that's one of those things where wine crash could end up being acquired for a huge lump. What did you do before? Wine pressure were you always an entrepreneur? I know you were dabbling a little bit that you and your co founder. We know we're doing some things before that. So maybe skip, what'd you guys do before that we're actually know I've never really been entrepreneurial on, I've always had ideas and things, but never really taken it, I needed someone to kind of like push me out of my comfort zone. After your. Her did. And I've actually been in the wine industry for quite a long time in. So it's something that I started at a younger age working at a local wine shop. Wine for a while. And then moving to Napa Valley in working from direct to consumer wineries to retail places doing harvests since just kind of been all over the place. So what did you do as a kid, were you one of those kids selling candy bars door to door eliminates fan? I wasn't. I think I did for a brief moment, has like a dog walking business. You don't even remember. No, I'm pretty certain I did. But it was really like three people in the neighborhood who let me walk their dogs, which is really nice. That's true. Business model day, right? Loyal customers. But outside of that. No, I was I, I was a total introverted kid. I write a lot in content. Doing what do you think is, maybe, like the one biggest strength you have it is going to help make you a successful entrepreneur? What would I say? Strang I protest in doing things a lot, but I will always do them and I do like to push myself outside of my comfort zone on all moan about it while I'm doing it. But I do it. I think like coming on here. Parents, always made me try things. You know, even if I said, I don't like this, they would say, have you ever tried it? No, I haven't been try it. So I've always put myself in a position where you don't know unless he tried it. I've value in respect that about because so many people don't wanna get pushed out of their comfort zones. And so the fact that you understand the value of pushing through your comfort zone is something important Tony Robbins. One of my mentors says life begins at the end of your comfort zone. And I think you understand that true. It's been probably impacted dramatically in ways that you haven't even been aware forcing yourself to get uncomfortable. Do you have maybe an example of maybe one of the best times in your life that you did something that made you uncomfortable? But ended up having a really big gift. I mean insider made you become a better version of yourself. Outside of, of course doing this show with us for now. What I was gonna say was right now. Actually, I don't I don't really know if I do I'm trying to think about, like it was very stated tribe. Western for the first time. Favorite quote that you live by our favorite book that you've read the truly impacted you..
