"Showed the consumer putting it on the brakes as U.S. retail sales fell by the most in a year, raising concerns at the economy is losing momentum under the weight of tighter, fed policy. That comes on the heels of recent consumer sentiment data that showed consumers aren't ready to tighten their belts just yet, despite warnings of a looming recession. So with all this in mind, we were pretty eager to catch up again with shaker not erosion. Executive vice president and chief supply chain officer at American Eagle. Yeah, trying to make sense of all these mixed signals when it comes to the consumer. Shaker, by the way, joined us though on the day before that retail sales figure was released. He's expressed confidence, though, in shopper spending power despite headwinds on both the demand and supply sides. Every retailer out there has experienced good sales during the peak season and at least that's what the Mastercard data says. And that's what basically the consumer sentiment is. Is that what you saw? Like I'm not allowed to talk about it. I know, I knew that, but I was just trying to get you. I'm so sorry. Disappointed you. But that said, I think last year was a year of just in case inventory in the system. Primarily because the supply chains were all the month before you report. You could share. Anyway, keep going. Keep going. So we definitely every retailer had just in case inventory. The supply chains are slow. Unpredictable. So people actually ended up carrying more inventory. Just to give you some context, 800 million ft² of warehouse space in 2022 was used for storing inventory. That number means nothing to me. So it's 8%. No, it sounds like a big number to me. It is. I know, but it feels better. What do they normally hold? Well, you don't have that. Basically, normally have any of that. Yeah. So we should see massive rationalization of inventory this year. People have begun to innovation, the inventory back in the system. Because the supply chains are working. The supply chain is getting the product into the countries working, but basically there's inflation still like lurking us at us from when it gets into the country to the doorstep. When you start looking at basically what FedEx and UPS have announced, they have announced a 6.9% surcharge on every package, which means one pound package that you ship like less than 200 miles for one pound is going to cost $10. It costs 8 cents to bring a unit from China, U.S.. It costs $10 to ship a package for one pound because it's so expensive in the U.S.. It's the last mile. It's not what makes it expensive. Very much, so but we live in a very fragmented system. Right. So we live in a very fragmented system because basically everyone is sitting in the center of the country. And from a warehousing perspective distribution and trying to access the customer. But the problem is that unless you're Amazon and you have your own network of delivery drivers, which is by not any means how they all are shipping, how Amazon ships everything. You're all kind of dealing with the same deck of cards. Yes. So, and that's where what we are trying to do with American Eagle with particularly quiet platforms. Is actually solving that very fundamental problem. So we are building a brand new category called collaborative commerce network. If you look at why the shipping networks work so efficiently, this collaboration, this consolidation at the port and when it gets into gets out of the factory. It's one giant shipping network, which is bringing the product into the country. And it is all interoperable. It's all trade moving on that ship. We don't have a system like that in U.S.. Everyone is actually. But can we have a system like that? I know we've talked about this with you before. Yes, very much so. Very much, and that's what we've been proving so far. When you hear Michael talk, who's our chief operating officer, he was on the even on the second quarter call, the third quarter call. And he mentioned it's unprecedented that we spent less money in 2022 than we spent in 2021. We spend less money in 2021 than we spend in 2020. Why? Because collaboration works. And collaborations across retailers and supply chain is the way of the future. So tell us how much can you drill down because we're talking at this high level, which is fine. But so say, so you're collaborating with who or what in terms of moving stuff around. So we have 50 brand retailers on our platform. Everyone from sacks, Steve maddens, fanatics, sacks, and so these are large customers who are actually doing business with us. And primarily what we are doing is we are aggregating, just like Uber, we are aggregating all of the packages and inventory, which is headed in one direction, or fulfilling these packages closest to where people live. But the thing that I don't get is, it's not like, and I go back to Amazon because I think that's what a lot of people are familiar with. If you make two separate orders on Amazon, sometimes they show up those two things show up in the same package. If I order something for American Eagle and something from Steve Madden, those are not going to show up in the same package, right? That's what we are attempting to solve. Are you attempting to open the same package? We are attempting to solve. So we have, we've designed, and this is something that we have basically conceptualized design, but we have to get to a certain scale for this thing to work. But you need sort of like one identifying characteristic from the consumer. In order to make sure that the Tim stand of Ecuador is this is the same as my wife who has a different last name who's ordering this. Yeah, right? So we are doing this is fundamentally happening in other industries. We have a concept called merge in transit. So primarily what it means is none of these networks, they're all push networks. When you actually buy something, you're pushing a package to doorstep. The quiet platforms, which is a facility close to where you lived him, is able to take packages which are all here to your door and then give it to one carrier so that one carrier delivers to your door in one box. And that's essentially what we are building out right now. If you listen to Carol told me talk, you know, she talked about it in a second quarter earnings earnings call. She said, the cost of last mile to your daughter is $5 and 50 cents on cost basis. The next package she delivers to your door is 60 cents more. Yeah. Okay, so Carol, I'm going to jump in here because I'm seeing this too with Uber, for example, an Uber eats. If you order something on Uber eats, they say, okay, you have X number of minutes to add something to your order from CVS, for example. Which is along the way, and I'm not using the names correctly, but it totally makes sense because that incremental cost to get that thing to your door is cheap. And imagine, right? You have, in the last ten years, if you revolve the time back and look at it like what ten years was like, you had probably one package from one carrier delivered to

"And I'm so glad that she's back at this doing some reporting, which is really, really awesome. I love it. Yay. Woohoo. So I think to wrap a little bit of this up just shall we talk about what she podcast is doing at podcast movement. Even if it's like high level or okay, we are going to have a booth and it will have some level of interaction as well as a possible photo op spot. So I'm trying to figure out how to do both at the same time. So I mean, it's only ten by ten space. So either it's going to have something, I mean, it's definitely going to have something interactive that you can do and put up and it'll be like it'll be like living art and then I'm not sure if that will be the photo op or if I'll have another wall dedicated to our logo and something we can take pictures of either in a frame or something. But yeah, it's going to be really good. I'm going to be at the booth almost the whole time because I end up not seeing people when we do parties. So that's why I'm excited to be in a booth. I know that it's going to be hard work. In fact, probably just watching you will stress me out because we're right across from libsyn. So just staring at LC all day while she like plasters on. I mean, I'm sure when she sees you guys who are listening, she's happy because our people we love. It's people we've never met before that make her justify her business. That's what she can't stand is when people go up and go, so why should I pick lips and over every other podcast host and everyone who lives is just like 'cause I mean, there are differences. No, of course there's differences. They know the answer. It's like having people that you love, like all standing next to each other and then like somebody is looking for a partner and they're like, hey, what do you think? Do you like elsie better or Jess? Who should we go to dinner with? Elsie or Jess. It's like going to a shoe store and Steve Madden is standing next to bessie Johnson and you make them go, okay, why should I buy your shoes over her shoes? Okay, why should I buy her? She's over

"This podcast contains difficult content that may be triggering to some listeners. Please be advised. Yeah, a lot of people don't know this, but before I was famous actor Jay Ellis, I was retail manager, Jay Ellis. When I was 15 and a half years old, I decided that I wanted stuff. So I busted my butt at athletes foot smoothie king, old navy. I moved around and eventually I worked my way up to being a manager as Steve Madden. And it was there, tending to all those expensive shoes that I learned. In the retail world, shoplifting is no joke. Most of the time, spotting someone was pretty obvious. When someone would walk out of the fitting room and suddenly be a little larger in the stomach than when they went in? Yeah, like what? I can't see that immediately. But I didn't take it personally, right? I knew that mister Steve Madden was getting a big check at the end of the day, whether someone ran off with a parachute or not. So I wasn't going to try and stop them. And I wasn't exactly going to hold the door open for him either. Oh, we got a runner. There he is. Hey, they run it. Now once those people got caught, we usually get our stuff back and as far as I was concerned, that's it. I'd go back to ringing someone up and playing store manager, but what I didn't understand at the time was even just the attempt to take that pair of shoes could absolutely ruin that person's life. This is the untold story, criminal, injustice. I'm J Ellis..

"So if they're a B to C company like Nike, you know, they'll show logos that lines up with that. If it's a SaaS company or healthcare company, they'll change and something as simple as that 54% increase in qualified conversions for them. Yeah, I mean, I think a lot of times when people think about personalization, they think, oh, I have to hire 5 content writers and do all these different things. And the reality is it's actually about headlines, CTA, logos, the things that you skim when you look at a landing page. And those things are actually relatively quick to change. Another really common use case for us is separating enterprise and self serve. Pretty much every company, whether they start with enterprise or self serve, they eventually start to do the other one as well. And so using mutiny to just separate those two groups and show them different experiences. One of our customers, live storm, they had a really great enterprise experience where large enterprise customers, they removed their pricing just because it ends up anchoring into their pricing, which is not beneficial for the enterprise. And they also were able to show, hey, this is webinar software for enterprises and that increased their conversions with an enterprise by 200%, but also by removing that pricing, it was also they were also able to expand their deal sizes as their sales team was able to really control and drive those conversations versus dealing with the website pricing that's for startups anchor an enterprise pricing conversation. On the outbound side, essentially what we do is we plug into outreach and Salesforce and we're able to pull in specific contacts or target accounts that the sales team or the ABM marketing team has added. And then create one on one personalized pages for all of those contacts or all of those companies. And so companies like brax and segment and a number of other ones are using that capability. So for instance, bracks has done a lot of work with outbound, where they were able to three X the number of synapse for the people that were seeing the one on one personalized pages. And in their case, they were showing their credit card with the name of the person on the card and a customized offer for that for that company. They were also they also saw 60% more reply rates when they were sending those messages versus just a personalized email that The Rock was receiving. Segment is also a really big user of our outbound functionality. They create thousands. I think at some point it almost like a 100,000 personalized pages for mid market and target accounts and they were able to personalize that page to the industry. So if someone's from ecommerce, say, Steve Madden, you know, they're able to speak to that ecommerce use case. And so they set up the personalization by industry, but then they're able to use mutiny to just interpolate the contact and the account name to make that a one on one experience. So they're able to set these things up really, really quickly and move really fast. I was talking to an AVM manager who was they could support ten accounts to do one on one personalization and meanwhile we had Rachel at segment creating tens of thousands of these one on one pages..

"To figure out what that question. Yes oh man at the tough one. That's why you focus on what you do right. I mean do what you do and do it. Well and get away with distractions and stuff like that like. What's the one thing you need to work on here. And so i'm glad that you're not swiss army knife of mar tech. You're really focused on the non sexy part of it but that's good. I appreciate that. So let's talk about q. Four were in that right now. Holiday season is around. The corner. code freezes or come in like gosh in three or four weeks for everybody the partners and chop affi- and they're still time right now to think about optimization right now and what are you. Recommending brands do right now thinking the fact that her. We are in the second week of october right now at an the days before. Espn but they're still opportunity to be able to do stuff. So what are you recommending brands. That are listening today. Work with you or not. What are you recommending so setting expectations With the visitors is similar to what we did during cove. It was a lot of you know on time shipping seen a lotta shipping delays in a lot of things. I think that's going to be an issue in. It's something we've done for the last year or eighteen months or so. It's the same thing it's really just setting it okay. If i order by this day. I'm going to guarantee you by christmas to do that. Were in stock. You know we have this. You know member of products and then we're really just trying to do the additional add ons as much as possible so even things like gift wrapping were tested a handful of that already even leaning up to it so before the big black friday monday push were seeing a lot of urgency kind of scarcity elements at play meaning. X number of people have ordered this in the last whatever days instead of the really like. Hey your orders reserved for it's more kinda softer approach of it just saying. Hey we've got some stock but were selling these items and being real and truthful with it not just a marketing gimmick but it is really just coming down expectations and like hey ominous ship it. You're gonna get it. it's guaranteed here's our warranty. We're seeing a lot more warranty items. Come into play companies ditching kind of the additional third party in taking warranty information in how expanding their money back guarantee percent a of lifetime warranty stuff those kind of things leading up to it because really we get into promo code and black friday cyber monday and it's really just go go go sell sell sell and bats good and bad but most of your learnings up until black craddock's monday kind of gig thrown out the window for couple of weeks because it's just the irrational lying behavior that most visitors during that time so it's really it's the majority of things that we're doing is just leading with some social proof with the expectations of ship times and then backing it up with those faq's to kind of just make them feel warm and comfortable doing business instead of just looking like a spin up store that might have a bunch of false security stuff on. We're things like that. You mentioned shipping times. I totally agree with adding being open and transparent about that supply chain if you don't already have your products you're kind of like a little bit screwed. Unfortunately but the other option there is that. There are ways of building alignment in non-competing verticals to get involved with other products. Maybe expand your product. Mix of you feel forecast wise that you may be running out of stock of things. The other option is to work with you know. There's a couple of companies. They're thinking of channel ape. I think of conviction. I mean there's software now that allows you align yourself with other non-competing verticals giving example. Let's say steve madden for example. Big and shoes massive retailer being what he also sells a lot of other things that are not steve madden branded product on his website. But that's very intentional. Could mean a handbag or other accessories that he doesn't want to get involved in but feels that their market leading products in the same vertical. He does that. And so there's software the to line yourself so think about the fact that maybe yes you have a full range of product but if things are gonna start running out is there an opportunity to be able to find other non-competing complimentary products that could be added on to your shop a store and almost an a drop ship arrangement have somebody else fulfil your customers orders because you have more full range catalog available to the buying population. So it's one thing that i wanted to bring up and then one other thing that i thought was unique. Maybe it's not unique to everybody but some brands are doing shopping early. Kinda vip's there being about this. Ara firmness recency frequency monetization strategy. So they're almost like they had to enlist or a bucket of customers that are kind of active loyal customers. And how are we giving them the vip kind of white glove treatment. Is it possible to send them over to a private page with a password. Protecting using locksmith. Or something give them the afc 'em deal now headed time because the share of wallet is only so big. I don't the number is fifteen hundred dollars per person. Whatever it is that money's not burned up like most of it through afc 'em imagine getting some of that earlier. Are you seeing that. Where some brandishing. He wait a second. Maybe we need to market to our. Vip's i in grabbed that share of revenue and then the regular buying population for the rest of the time. Yeah so we've got one client comes to mind. They locked down their store for every new season release. So they're actually in australia so it's summer so they just launched their summer collection essentially there including apparel and they locked down their store and change things up and basically created this ultimate be ip experience for visitors so they actually lock it down and go to them first and they have one of their most successful months ever just leading up into this. So we're seeing a few more stores really try that and kind of segment particularly those you can't track and just increase in your adspend isn't necessarily the best thing and as long as you have something new and fresh to position or some kind of angled for that and what's funny. Is this company actually. We increase their shipping threshold as well for free shipping. It increased their average order value dramatically. Not only did they get this big influx of customers from their existing customer base that they built this vip program for but it was like a thirty percent bump So you know. That's that's some definite some things. And i'm glad you brought that up because locking down creating that kind of buying frenzy and then you also look at companies like alani new. Which is the beverage. Plus supplement company. They basically don't do any ad spent because everything's just kind of viral customer base situation but they're massively successful because of it because they're kind of leaning into that quote unquote cult following in that group of vip buyers to kind of leave the driving force notes. I've noticed too before we give it a few more questions for you today. But just thinking top of mind here and i love spitballing. He's kind of marketing ideas. Tap car is a big trump. If i plus technology partner allows you to have a mobile app partners in that same kind of ecosystem but tap cart has been one of the ones. I've been recommending. A lot and finding a lot of brands now are getting on board with them and what they're doing is they're purposely messaging over there. Vip's and they're forcing a little bit quote unquote in quotation marks forcing them to say download our mobile app. You're vip and we're only gonna offer promotional special kind of limited drops and flash sales in different things through the mobile app only because they know the selfish benefit of having a mobile customer or a dedicated mobile app is the push notifications and lots of other different kinds of real estate on. Your phone is like super important pushes the big one by having that app there and then there's really helps build community because a lot of things can be built into a mobile app that you can't get maybe on the web on your phone physically. Have you.

"The morning hey. Don't make fun of it. It's not just for granny's anymore. did you see that. The fashion trend for women of crocheted tops is like the hottest thing right now. The summer for girls in their twenties. Last night was wake you. My daughter won't take off her crocheted top all summer. She's been wearing it. And i'm like you're going to get the weirdest sun tan lines or sunburn lines. 'cause because it's so holy you know and we'd burn so easily but ever since i saw do a leap as crocheted bikini. I was on board. Yeah you see that mo jo that picture that she last week. No i haven't spike and i did. Yeah no i did. Although some of them. I don't know if i like. I don't know if i liked the homemade looking version. Ones like here's one right here. This girl i don't know if that looks like flattering on her. That that's not great. Last night had one. That was the the middle kind kind. Looked like that but then it had like the cute poofy sleeves on the side. So it was a normal shirt on the sides but the middle part was crocheted like the actual crocheted ones. That your grandma who's blind in one eye makes my grandma stuff coach. Jamie not so great. But i feel like it either has to be tight and form fitting on you or has to be very drapey on you but that one. You just showed us kind of in the middle. It's kinda like baxter this. How guys are wearing them to. I didn't realize that guy guys wearing crocheted Sweaters this winter will probably be a big thing like that. Oh you know what. I wanted to meghan. Should bring up the story about when you're at milford men were memories and it's funny. Isn't it when you start. Seeing fashion trends. Change in younger. Kids are wearing the fashion trends. You're like crap. Why wasn't that a fashion trend. When i was their age Yeah could not agree with that statement anymore. i'm bringing into this group of girls and all. I wish i remembered what high school they went to. But they were group of juniors and seniors and I was talking to Because i had heard about this traumatic talk. And i didn't know if this was like just a california thing just a florida thing or if it was kind of like a whole generational idea but high schoolers are now starting to use the backpacks that kindergarteners would normally use. But it's all stuff that they were interested in as kids and i started asking. I'm like oh you know. Who would you have on your backpack. And they're like oh one direction and all this other stuff and they asked me. And i said this spice girls and they went who an island. My soldiers died But i was actually so jealous. Because i would've loved that as a high schooler and i totally would have been made fun of for it to have like your your favorite artists on your backpack or i mean i would also probably do like teenage mutant ninja turtle or bell beauty and the beast like i had a sesame street backpack in high school. Did you yeah. Because there was there was a store at twelve oaks. It was called the sesame street general store and they had like jan sport backpacks with like the characters on them and i thought it was almost like a thing for a minute and a few years ago the tiny backpack trend started with steve madden and her show and other places doing real tiny backpacks for women. But now it's where you're just skipping the designer's going back to the target i'll five and you're buying the ones with the cartoon characters like katie. Our audio engineer here. She has a..
"steve madden" Discussed on eCommerce Fastlane
"Model. And so i guess that's my question. Is that why do you believe a self serve return or exchange solution in this case. Why do you believe it's important for a growing shop. If i brand be explained the component parts of the ecommerce return operating system. I think that'll that'll explain our answer. Your question so you're referring to in automating returns really the we call portal software. And so that's step one which is software that you know in our case a shop. If i merchant could find our app in the app store download the app attached to their store. Spend five minutes. Configuring the app so this would be things like adding specifics of return policy adding branding and then be able to launch a branded return portal. Which is sort of self service for the shoppers to automate. Return an exchange process. So this is again brandon. For the merchant it removes customer service from the equation rate. Shoppers can sort of self provision their returns. Typically they start by authenticating themselves usually using order number and zip code it can also do this via email and into what our software does it pulls up. All the orders in that that customers profile applies the merchants return policy and let's the shopper identified. the items. They wanna return based on the information they give us you know. Why are you returning this item. And based on the available inventory are software will actually make exchange recommendations. The simple example. I always give his hammer turning a pair of rossi's That's a customer of ours. You know their size seven. They're black flats. They were too small well our software. We'll go look for that same style and if it's available in an eight will promote it to the to the shopper. As one of the options to exchange in just that simple process of making it easy for people to say yes actually has a positive impact on the exchange rate and higher the exchange rate the more revenue the merchant can actually retain so that's the second function of our software and then the third and i think this is really where we're different from the competitive set in central. Our thesis is that at the end of our flow. We give customers choices so yes you can return by mail if you want to print a label. Our software will render the label but but more often which shoppers wants to do is they want to drop off in person and so what happens then. Is they get a qr code. Get directions to the nearest happy returns. Return bar location on. This is a network of twenty six hundred places around the country that we manage in order to accept returns from all the merchants we work with and we share the nearest location based on the zip code where the order was shipped so again. Most shoppers will opt in to box. Drop off. this is sort of similar to if you bought anything on amazon. Recently you can typically return amazon purchase to kohl's or a whole foods so in this example you get the qr code your returning at the happier turns and the hundred vocations are all kinds of different retail establishments places like paper source or call us market or bed bath and beyond or we've partnership with simon malls the mall concierge. We recently end of last year announced partnership with fedex office and so you know twenty six hundred locations around the country where you can take that. Qr code you don't need to print anything you don't need to box anything. You don't need to wrestle with packing tape we joke. The tape is a four letter word. You simply show up with your item and your qr code. And say hey. I'm here to do happy return from a shopper perspective. You know they love the friction free element. They loved not having to wait because went when the item gets checked in at the drop off location. That's what triggers the refund or. That's what triggers the exchange order from the merchant. Let's talk about. Maybe what's broken because i totally agree with you. That is like a fabulous workflow to have automating things through the portal and then allowing a end some recommendation there about how would you like to exchange it a refunded and label versus in store. Obviously going to a location and dropping it off and that triggers an event and in so we'll we'll dig into some specific things about how these returns actually migrate their way back to the appropriate vendor. What he believe is broken right now. In the post purchase returns workflow. That's a great question so for shoppers. It's really the friction right. No one wants to print anything. I saw great tweet the other day. That said you know anyone under the age of thirty five like stop expecting us to print things and in couvert world where people are working from home. You know for a lot of folks. The printer was at the office. And now if you're working from home if the merchant and the return providers asking you to print a label. That's a hard thing to overcome on the shopper site. It's you know it's the printing it's the boxing the taping very importantly. It's the waiting to get your money back. And so we saw that on the merchant side. Anything probably most relevant for listeners. Today it's really about the cost refund or exchange. The item has to get back. Today's environment shoppers. Expect the merchant to subsidize this. They expect it to be free and so this is where the reverse logistics cited what we do. I kicks in so to continue with that roth. These example brought these customer drops the item officer at return bar. That pair of rotties gets put into a reasonable tote. That reasonable tote fills up during the course of the day with returns from other merchants so it could be addressed from revolve could be sweater from draper. James could be a pear board shorts from outer known. They all go into the same reasonable tote because every merchant is now getting the benefit of aggregation. It's far cheaper to ship. One twenty pound box full of returns than it is to ship. Twenty one pound boxes. That co-mingled aggregation critical driving down the cost for the merchants so that total ship from the drop off point to one of our regional processing hubs. We operate two of these today. One an east coast one on the west coast and at that hub. We will sort by merchant so authors shoes get segregated from the steve madden shoes then from that addresses from draper james and then we'll bulk ship the items back to the merchant. This is again. Taking advantage of aggregation in order to drive down the shipping costs per unit. And so there's no real hard cost savings. Typically it's in the neighborhood of twenty to thirty percent versus paying for returns by mail. This is the part that i really wanted to make sure that people listening today. This is a differentiator in the marketplace. Right now because there are a lot of interesting solutions out there. I don't even want to call them competitors but it's interesting where they really advocate. Software portal solution mostly label. Printing options may be attempting to create a gift card maybe in exchange to remotivate people to want to purchase but at the end of the day the product still has to get back to the merchant. Somehow and you're right. People don't want print labels it's quite a hassle and it is the friction and you're suggesting because of these twenty eight hundred locations you're giving people the opportunity not to mention the residual effect of these locations. I mean why the times. I wouldn't be surprised if people start shopping or learn more about these return locations and they become customers at the return locations in exchange for being happy returns. Drop off center. You got it on that side of our business. that is the model. So and i'll just use paper source because there are longstanding location partner of ours. If you if you bring your roth these into a paper source store you is the shopper. You get the benefit of that friction. Free return getting your refund or your exchange initiated there on the spot happier turn sends you an email. That memorialize is the return transaction in this important. It's not like when you go to the post office and you get that sixteen digit alphanumeric code on. It's like oh you ship something. This is an itemized receipt. That says okay david. Your attorney in the sweater you're returning the medium exchanging for large returning the pants. You know. you're getting a refund on the pants. So there's one hundred dollars coming back to your visa card ending in one two three four. So it's a detailed itemized receipt but that receipt. Also we provide an opportunity for the location partner to make an offer so if you were to turn into a paper source what you'd probably find is a i think today there's a ten dollar offer that they're running to buy something in the store that day and so again you know. We're trying to the company's called happier turns right. We're trying to create joy and delight in what used to be the worst part of shopping online. Shoppers love this right. They love the fact that gosh this was not only was it. A friction for return. But now i'm in a place like a paper source. I have an offer from the store and what often happens. Is people buy things right. I mean they. They're like oh well. As long as i'm here i'm gonna get that card for the birthday party. They have coming up. I'm gonna buy craft kit for this. Know easter's coming. I'm in a ed coloring kit. It's really trying to bring joy to what i.

How I Built This
"steve madden" Discussed on How I Built This
"From npr. How i built this a show about. Innovators entrepreneurs idealists and the stories behind the movements they built. I'm gyros on the show today. How stacey madison turn day-old pita bread into a new snack. Stacy's pita chips and then went on to sell her brand one of the world's biggest food companies for a quarter of a billion dollars so there are some startup stories. Were most of us are probably thinking. I couldn't do that like squarespace. If you heard that episode you'll remember that anthony tusla was and is a gifted computer programmer. He had a highly specialized skill. Same story with steve madden. He literally designed and then fashioned shoes from leather and sold them but then there are the stories where most of us can actually imagine doing that. Thing ourselves like brian. Scooter moore who bought an old truck and offered to holloway people's trash. That's how he started one eight hundred got junk or lisa price who tinkered with homemade lotions and our kitchen. She went on to sell her brand. Carol's daughter till laurie out. Well today story is the second variety. The kind of story that almost anyone can relate to because it is such a simple and elegant idea. You take pita bread in cut into wedges you bake it throw some parmesan or seasoning on it and voila. You've got stacy's pita chips now. Even though the snack food industry today is a sixty. Six billion dollar juggernaut. Stacey madison did not have a grand master plan to disrupt snack foods in the late. Nineteen ninety s at that time. She and her boyfriend were literally selling pita wraps sandwiches from a sandwich cart in downtown boston. The pita chips were an afterthought a way to use up those extra pitas at the end of the day. Peter chips were never supposed to make stacey wretch but eventually frito lay would come knocking with a fistful of dollars but long before that long before stacey even sold her first sandwich she was on an entirely different path. She grew up in the suburbs near boston after college. Stacey went to california to get a master's degree in social work. She thought about becoming a psychologist like her dad but he wasn't so enthusiastic about that he felt. I should always become a social worker rather than go on to get my mba psychologists. He was like oh. That's no profession for a woman. That's one thing that he said was smiling. Look pretty and you will find a husband you know. I don't wanna make him sound like a jerk. He was like a caring loving man that put his family first but he was also a product of the fifties. Sure so once you get your master's degree I read the you. You actually moved to washington dc to To to what to do social work. Yes i worked in a group home for homeless pregnant drug addicted women and i have to tell you i mean i loved. The job was very rewarding. But at the time i think i made twenty two thousand dollars a year and it was really paycheck to paycheck and very hard to survive on that kind of income so i decided to go and get licensed and be able to private practice. Which eventually i did go on to do. But i've found it very isolating. No now i've got to go. And i unlocked the door and and i do you know marriage counseling and then my evening is over. I've seen five or six patients. And i closed the door behind me and i go home and i put a lot of effort into getting those degrees and licenses and realize that ultimately it probably just was not for me to your your I guess roughly thirty years old at this time and by the way you were engaged to break right now that ended. I think it was just mutual. I think ultimately it was. Just not the right thing. I think we just both agreed we had had the place picked out. We were going to get married. And it was kind of a bizarre story. But i went and i had a massage. This i know sounds like i'm going off on a tangent here but it will come back. I went and i had a massage. And the woman told me to take off all my jewelry imbaba blah blah blah and. I took it off. I put it in the dish guy massage. And i got up and i went to get dressed and i was like oh my god. All my jewelry is gone including my ring might engagement ring and i was just you know it was from his family. It was like i was just so upset and the girl was gone. She had gone gone like never to return. I think she took off to florida or somewhere. She never came back to work. She just kinda took all my stuff. But with rick and i was kind of like ring wasn't replaced immediately even and i don't care about the ring even if it's just a cigar brand or something like that that it kinda took so long replacing the ring that it forced both of us to look at. Should we really be doing this. Maybe this was a sign or something and ultimately. Yeah we just decided. Maybe we shouldn't get married. So you guys split up a meantime there was this guy mark andrews who you had met through your brother a few years before he was a friend. Did you guys start dating or would you just kind of touch. So he was still a friend. And i talked to him. All the time about my disengagement and all of that he was super supportive and eventually our friendship led to dating and he was getting his phd so he was doing an internship in hawaii and said well. Why don't you come out to hawaii. And what did you do in hawaii. So hawaiian was.

Being a Women of Color in the Workplace
"Going to talk about what we usually talk about outsider podcasts reporting which is our workplace and being a person of color of a female of women of Color in the workplace. And how we navigate microaggressions unconscious bias. Balancing all of that with professionalism and has been saying and we just wanted to open it up to the floor and made them can go around and talk about what our individual workplace flake and looks like literally like you know what what does that look like and maybe like the industry that we're ends. Do you WANNA start. Let's see yeah. Sure I currently work at a sales agency and a fashion multi line. Show Room so Pretty much do is just Where in wholesale and the wholesale industry so I work with European designers and After fashion week happens we kind of just like get the collections and we prep it and we see buyers from like Nordstrom burke door of two in the independent Boutiques so our job is pretty much just saw the designers collection during a certain amount of time But I've been in the industry for a while for maybe like three four years professionally before that I was like freelancing and doing other things to buy. The wholesale industry is interesting because in the fashion side. It's not very diverse. It's I been through a lot of trade shows and doing you know market week in Paris but often times. The women selling the clothing are always wait. Do and it's so interesting because the men's industry is buried divers. Wow that's surprising Why do you think that is? I just think men like to work together. True true true. Yes I think so I think women I think naturally were just very Kind of I don't want to say like cliquey but we just kind of you know ten to a little sore already. Yeah I think so and you know when you have a show room with a lot of white women. It's usually. They got to tend to only hire white women green. Yeah what about you Angie? You're in fashion too. So I work for Steve Madden. I do marketing and social media so like comments. Dmz on working with influencers doing behind the scenes now for like our photo shoots and our campaigns and things like that. It's it's different. I've been doing this for since April and before that I was still st man. But I was doing the wholesale side but I've been in the fashion and I've only ever worked in fast. Yeah Higher Being St Man and I've only ever worked retail and like briefly out of showroom. Yeah and with that workplace look like and what does it look like now? Okay so when it comes to retail retail can be very diverse by. Yeah when you start looking at the people that are being promoted Israeli. Never the people like you. It's usually like white women. Yeah Or is usually like white women are one is our want to say like women are people that are like white passing and honestly the same thing for corporate. Yeah I'm in my personal opinion That's really like all you see. They're the ones that make the decisions whether you can relate to them or not And that's it's tough. Yeah no I think I and I'm in a similar boat as well so I work at Cnn's great story and it is a media company kind of like a startup be summation before that out that MTV and it's interesting when I was an MTV it was. I didn't appreciate did. They versity as much because it was actually very diverse. But as Andy said it gets less diverse as you go further up to the top. It's usually like the hustling coordinators or laying. Junior managers are like people of Color. And they're actually doing the creative work and executing and but then sometimes like the people who are getting the credit or approving budgets or have making the thought leadership decisions. Aren't the people who are on the ground and it? It was diverse but as you said it was not ever so the top. I'm in a situation now where I think it's even less diverse and especially in the creative editorial side. Yeah there's only one black producer no one now. We have one Asian producer. And it's interesting too because I think being Asian American. There's like spaces where it might be diverse but it's still underrepresented in terms of like the Asian perspective whereas like in finance or accounting. Maybe there's an overrepresentation of Asian Americans and like less reputation. Everywhere else I think in media it can kind of toss up depending on where you work And Yeah it's pretty dismal. There's can be such big improvement and I don't know if you guys experienced this but especially when you're making content bat is for a diverse community or your featuring a character or even a models or like maybe they wanna work with an influence or who's like not white then it's all for the purpose of of like selling something or trying to use diversity as a coin like a badge on their shoulder to be like. Hey like we'll call diverse. We are like our workplaces multiverse right so that is kind of like the the liberal daily things that I struggle with of. Sometimes they're like. Oh we know we have a long way to go in terms of diversity but the stories we tell her David or some just like is not problematic. Right Right Yeah. I think even for me just from what I've noticed is like I think it it truly bothers me even when I look at like certain photo shoots or campaigns not even from like necessarily where I work but just from like other companies and it's like they have like that one token blogger or like that one token Spanish girl. Ah just to exactly just to say that you had them in there like Oh Nolan. Little more diverse. It's like it's kind of like that. Like white person in caterer but I have a black Friday morning God. No that's not totally like this is so different and I think it's like this is what I say Especially when it comes to companies. It's like you have the most diverse. Like when you look at the demographics of who is buying your product More often than not they are people of Color. Yeah but your campaigns never show that And that is the biggest thing that I struggle with. And then for me. It's also like well. Why am I gonNA WANNA follow you? Social Media Yeah because like now. I'm in that social media realm so like now like I I really like pay its engines and things like that so I I you know. I love this brand. Their campaigns don't really represent me. Yeah I don't really know how I feel about this because then now I'm looking at it like okay. Well who are the top executives that are in? You know that are a part of your company like who's making these decisions. Why do they think that this that? I'm supposed to really to this person that you're showing you know for
