Shen Beauty's Jessica Richards: People Want Clean, But They Also Want Results
"The real sort of shift came in realizing that not every woman shops organic clean natural. Whatever you wanna call it Because not everything from that. Category mainly works for their skin and and our issue was that because it was so long ago and there were no other retailers in this space. Certainly none i would say my only competitor at the time was whole foods right like and that's not even a competitor of mine sephora. Ulta bayden want clean organic natural beauty and certainly not what is now in the or niche. You know smaller brands nor did nordstrom's or you know any of these other retailers. They just wanted the mass marketed brands. And so what i realized was that people were coming into the store and they were having a really hard time. Grasping a cleanser. That was one hundred twenty dollars from a brand. They'd never heard of because they were still focused on brand recognition and buying marketing. I mean magazines were huge.

They had never heard of before and they also wanted the heavy pay off of the pigments. That mainly come from non-clean beauty brands and so that was sort of the catalyst for me in realizing that people want organic natural clean. Whatever you call it but they really want

You want to know more about what's going on in there and then you start feeding it.

The dow closed above thirty three thousand for the first time on this good news. The fed is projecting six and a half percent.

Hello peter why don't you start out for those of us who aren't familiar with it by explaining. What is the covid. Nineteen science advisory table. Who's on it. What role does it play. The science advisory table is grew ball scientists and Senior 'em health systems decision makers that advised the province ministry of health and elected decision-makers vera bar with forty five people meanwhile but we also have several subgroups for instance a subgroup of congregate settings on behavioral sciences etc. The me twice a week typically So we spend. It's the best part of Three hours together every week which helps associate to keep to develop a continued common sense of reality and we meet once a week with the health. Coordination table and half multiple meetings are more talk basis with various representatives of the different ministries Public health on -tario on that. And other stakeholder groups can you outline before we get into this new report. How ontario is currently approaching vaccine distribution. And did you guys advise the government on their initial plan. B didn't the initially advice on the vaccination rollout bouts galt relatively as strongly involved when discussing the importance of speed in vaccination of Long term care home residents and staff and which also goltz incorporate in the strategy of the province the current strategy is focusing on different woman apple groups as i implied already one of them. Of course the most important one is long term care home residents we had Roughly fifty percent of the deaths Covid nineteen deaths in the province long-term care home residents and they're glad to report back that that this really went extremely well and that we really now see the impact of Covid nineteen vaccines in this. Very vulnerable grew the challenges. We had which were big changes in the province actually have nearly completely been eliminated there at an ulta groups that are important including a frontline healthcare workers again this is important because they can't get continuously exposed but also because you need to make sure that the healthcare workers are actually able to work obviously and not part of an outbreak that could result in prolonged isolation and quarantine and then chester in a decrease in the workforce that we currently urgently need and the the current surge strategy also focuses on those who are aged eighteen boffin again. This makes perfect sense because that's the people who were most likely to die except for people in the long term care home see respective of their age so this all makes perfect sense where we are right now and that's why we're coming in actually with this new report so everything that we're doing already makes sense but isn't necessarily the optima way and this is what your new report gets sent. Iran this is correct. Yes so vault we now just. They're trying to address. Is the fact that that this pandemic all over. The world is socio economically driven very clearly. Life is unfair and this also halts for the impact of this pandemic. those people are most vulnerable live in precarious living situations. Get the chop stall on behalf of all of us you know. Make sure that we actually have act are able to buy you know foods on the shelves in the supermarkets. That's those people are most heavily burdened by this pandemic and what we know ways that the pandemic is heavily concentrated in terms of its burden on ten to twenty percent of the neighborhoods in the province and at this has been historically the case and assist case. Most of the time in life you with the past is the best predictor of the future. Even if we would not like this to be the case and what we know is also for in in terms of short-term or maidstone predictions that this continues to be the case host neighborhoods that were most heavily burdened in the past. They haven't reached an herd immunity yet. they're not sufficiently protect against against infections. And they will continue to have freely. High numbers of cases of hospitalizations viseu missions deaths. If you're not being careful and just look into how to protect these neighborhoods best and that's where it is. Report comes in.

27 Years Of Bringing Voice Assistants To The Masses with Adam Cheyer
"Atom. Let's start off with some introductions you are an for people in the voice space you are well known and so for a lot of people watching us. They probably have a sense of who you are. But i'm sure there are some people here that don't so i'd you to take a moment or two and just introduce yourself to the audience. Sure i've been working with voice and and conversational system for a long time since the early nineties. I'm best known as the co founder. Serey technical co founder. Siri which was the at. That's all to apple. Makes jerry. And i also was co founder of labs which ulta samsung. That's powering the new bixby assistant incredible. I mean you stop right there. We're done that's a good conversation that that's that's quite a resume at an so it's it's a real pleasure to have you on here so we'd love to get your thoughts today on voice assistance over the really the decades. 'cause that's what you have decades of experience in this and also where you think it's going in the future so maybe we can just kinda start with i mean. How did you cope with the idea of siri. First of all or the the the company that became siri. What are your thoughts on that. And how did you first get involved with. Voice technology voice and where. Where did you develop that line of thinking you know. So i've been pretty consistent with the vision that i had for my career so in nineteen ninety three which was the year before i saw web browser modina was my came out in one thousand nine hundred four. Someday they're going to be computers around the world with content and services that we want to access and i never thought we would use hyper links and documents and web pages to do the away. I envisioned it is. I thought everyone would have an assistant. And you could say i wanna know. That's all i wanna do that. And the job of the assistant would be to take that request break down into sub requests route all the sub request to the right machines around the world perform the operations or gathered the data presented to the user learn from those interactions. And help these got the job done so for me. Siri or the assistance. I've been working on. Have been about and interface not the only one but an-and or face to what i imagined to be wet. You know services and content coming online dynamically and in nineteen ninety-three. I actually built a prototype of that ran on a little tablet. Pc about this big yet to connect it to a dial up modem twenty four hundred islands modern up a phone with one of those chords on it. You remember. we're dial into a server type in your your pass code into this and if you had both the little terminal device and the phone the would pair if they're logging within user then you could speak into the phone. The words would come out on the little. Pda the device. You could correct it with a pen and then you could delegate your request to dynamic set of services and not only individual services but combinations of services in a typical request some ten fifteen different services who did not know about each other with now start to be invoked to perform the request that you just ask. Kazoo added new services and new content on the fly as new sites. Were coming up on the web on the fly. What you could say and do dynamically changed and so it was a very. That was kind of my my vision. I felt ninety read The nineties. I had something like fifty different iterations of voice. Assistance can tell you about some of those. But i've been trying to get this to the masses for twenty seven years more than twenty seven years now and i keep getting closer and closer and closer in syria and big speed is all along that path. That same vision of the assistant. Who knows you and really serves as your mediator to help you achieve requests and you can do it through typing through clicking all part of one conversation where you make requests responds. You refine your requests and you work to test them. So that's how. I got started nineteen ninety-three at sri international.
The Other Side of Grief with Angie Smith
"Can you take us back to audrey. he's pregnancy and talk a little bit about about your story. From last season it was twelve years ago. Which is really hard to believe. You're talking about that the other day but the basic stories that i was pregnant with my daughter audrey she would have been our fourth daughter in. We found out during the pregnancy. Just like a regular at our twenty week ultrasound that she had many issues that made her incompatible with life and the term that they used and we ended up carrying her for several more weeks until she was passed viability. We just want to give her a shot. You know even though we were just praying for a miracle. We did not get the miracle that we really wanted but sheila for about two and a half hours and it was absolutely one of the hardest times of my life but she still so much part of our family. I feel like so in fact all the little neighborhood girls are designing they call us the sleeve or they somehow combined oliver. The smirks for they've mind are lasting of there's adorable mansion on us to all league compound firstalec giant house and they give audrey room held me so yeah it's still i mean it's so tender now but yeah it really beautiful to see him and other people remember her include her so so. Let's talk about that. That my one of my good good friends. Just walk through this. And i was actually there with her the day that her baby died and it was just you know and it reminded me of of you because i feel like you have given so many people picture into something that is often private and often not talked about in in so just in that season. We're talking about you know being fragile in this time. And i know since then because i'm your friend i know more and more horrific suffering that you've been through since then and i want to know just what that word fragile means to you and i think even back angie to your book cover of a broken china page. That was piece that together. I mean this is really something that an image for you it in your life. Yeah i think fragile is a really good word to describe this. The last season of my life. Like i sort of almost used that term with my general life like there's always like a little bit of i think for me right now and in those situations what i'm seeing is that even when i feel like i'm doing really well then i could still kind of take turn quickly where it's like one of those things that this is the dumbest example but i was at ulta yesterday and i i mean i've been out but not like probably as much as some people have in june okay with the whole pandemic like i mean. We're my husband's best friend who's here said on. You've been training for the soon. Like i like being home like so we i go to ulta. Everything's just take down like everything just feels like. I think everyone's got masks on all of a sudden. Like i just feel like i'm always sort of teetering on being in the hall. Just feels like there's a shift that i don't feel like i ever expect it. I mean even might. I mean my dad passed away. Which is part of what you were referring to and i was in the store and i was okay and then what actually broke me was. I saw this bottle of allure perfume. Which was the first Data ever bought for me and like the cell. So it's stuff like that where you're i think. There's just a different tenderness right now. That even in the moments where feeling we're kind of holding it together. It feels like most people i know are also like but this could break at any time right. Looks really solid right now. Right in an hour yet. I get a totally different answer. So it's a good word for it. Yeah i think you're right. I think i wake up some mornings. And i'm like i don't have any bearings i i feel. I don't have time and space like recently. I kept talking about our staff meeting tomorrow. I'm talk to our meeting tomorrow. And they're like it's friday. That's four days away just like i don't even know what to say it. Looks like a senile eight five year old but i cannot. I can't play it. Put my feet in time and space very well. You know which does make it just all feel like what secure in what's in what is all it it absolutely and i feel like i mean i. What's funny is. I think everyone is forgetting the days of the week. It's just these crazy. Yeah i do all. I did it today. I mean i like i thing. Is you know. yeah no. I think that that's part of it is just it. It's what you said. There's this like sort of like were lost in space and time and everything looked so weird and you know. I'm watching my neighbors. One of my dearest friends put her kindergartner on the bus. And he's the most lake shy in will mask and she's like i've never seen this classroom. I've never talked to the teacher like in. She's like a note. she looks like right here. She seems really nice. But altman dat. I tend to have depression anxiety. And i always have in so in this season. It's been extremely difficult. And i know. I'm not the only one but it's you said it's just kinda can't get your bearings in it makes you feel so unsteady in that revealing feeling to me is like it goes to panic. It doesn't it's not absolutely you'll uneasy here like so. Yeah we what we we right. I mean navy but then it's it's it's like it's the same as suffering all the things that you've been gone through lately it's like that that's that's also a grief does right is it puts you kind of in an alternate reality and and i wanna talk. 'cause i know there are so many women listening right now i mean i just i specifically think of my dear friend cathy who is just you know it's been one year anniversary just happened and so i want you to talk to them that those that have lost a child looking back on that journey. What do you wish you could tell yourself back then. I think i would probably talk about the fact that so funny. You ask that right. I said it regarded pandemic but that there is another side to this. You're you're not going to be in this place forever. So free i would say at the time it just felt like it would never end. Yeah fell it. would never recover in. Grief is weird. I'd probably tell myself that to you that it's again like it isn't the steady like okay. I'm better now. okay. I'm it's it's unexpected
Sephora Says So-Long to J.C. Penney, Hello to Kohls
"The beauty business can be pretty ugly. Consider the battle by department stores. Jc penney and kohl's for the affections of beauty brands sephora for the last fifteen years sephora has run stores within stores at jc penney. Those mini stores have been the most productive part of pennies credit. suisse analyst. Michael bonetti told industry publication retail dive. Naturally the last thing the struggling pennies wants to lose its golden goose especially as it attempts to emerge from bankruptcy after declaring chapter eleven protection in may but sephora hasn't been happy with its longtime partner and cast its longing i elsewhere in fact. Jc penney took sephora accord in may for attempting to leave at week reported the to came to what they say is an agreeable settlement that is sephora is honoring its commitment until the end of its contract in two thousand twenty three but the pair is still on the path to divorce in. The meantime sephora has made plans to move in with jc penney rival. Kohl's by twenty twenty three sephora and cold say there will be at least eight hundred. Fifty sephora stores within stores at kohl's nationwide retail dive because customers need to replenish makeup often in-store beauty departments help pulled in walk in traffic sephora. Could be a huge reason for customers especially younger ones to return to colds. Brick and mortar shops post pandemic. The move is particularly strategic now. Analysts say traditionally shoppers have purchased makeup. It mall based department stores but with malls dying beauty. Customers have fewer brick and mortar options. And they prefer one stop shopping. You know being able to buy makeup at the same store where you shop for clothes appliances and much more. Unlike jc penney cold stores are in suburban strip malls which will give sephora access to customers. It hasn't reached sephora. Stores tend to be an urban areas. Colds plans to make the partnership a big deal. The twenty five hundred square foot sephora departments will be placed prominently at the front of kohl's visible from outside and sometimes with their own entrances. The new colds tie up leaves. Jc penney out in the cold. The retailer is being sold. A mall landlords simon properties in brookfield asset management earlier. This month penny announced plans to start. Its own store within a store beauty concept to fill at sephora shaped holes. But that's not the only part of the streetfight worthy of a perfectly groomed raised eyebrow. The cold sephora partnership faces a much tougher competitor. Jc penney just last month targeted announced that it had successfully wooed ulta beauty to build stores within stores at target alta is of course a for his biggest rival so ken cole's compete with target by putting sephora up ulta. It certainly won't be easy during the pandemic colds share. Prices dropped almost thirty percent the company's now worth under six billion dollars according to cnbc in contrast target is booming. It's now worth about ninety billion dollars. Cnbc reports target plans to open about one hundred alta many stores nationally by the end of next year ultimately they plan to expand into hundreds of targets both target and kohl's are adding their respective beauty partners to their websites still the store within a store partnerships point out the existential facing strip mall department stores and that is post pandemic. How much in person shopping would we really do. Especially the younger women. Retailers are trying so hard to attract millennial gen z consumers. Were already used to quite a bit of online shopping. And the pandemic accelerated that trend. Furthermore with instagram and other online players pushing social commerce will any department store be able to woo these shoppers back inside. Nearly both kohl's and target believe they will time vaccine. We'll tell
Apple reportedly steps up effort to build Google search alternative
"Financial times ran a piece saying that apple is working on an alternative to Google search an interesting story. It's an interesting idea. According to the paper apple is stepping up efforts to develop its own search technology as us anti-trust authorities threatened multibillion dollar payments multibillion dollar payments. Google makes secure prime placement of its engine on the iphone already. There's so much about this story that's fascinating to me. It looks like first of all apple. Search engine is already running. Although it's not really a search engine exactly. The financial times says when people type in request for info from the home screen in iowa. Fourteen apple has started showing its own search results looking directly to websites rather than going through a third party in iowa. Fourteen today view. The report says the operating system shows apple generated list of search suggestions rather than the google results these results include auto compete style. Excuse me auto. Complete style. suggestions generated by apple showing that it is learning from its one billion users common queries. Okay see i kinda just want to read the whole story to you and then go back. Point-by-point it's the financial times. Why don't we start there. It's the financial times so of course. They're concentrating on the money. Part of it as if apple just started doing this yesterday. They keep saying that the doj is suing. Google for anticompetitive behavior at the center of that suit or near. The center of that suit is the fact that google pay somewhere between nine billion then twelve billion dollars a year to be the default search engine in safari. Everybody says for iphone. But it's for safari right. The doj in the past few weeks at right were suing. And i know we've known that that was coming for a while. But it's not like falcons can suddenly turn on a search engine from nothing. of course they haven't turned it on nothing Two and a half years ago. The got john john andrea. I'm sure i'm pronouncing that wrong He was the head of google search supposedly. They said it was to Increase their artificial intelligence capabilities and siri virtual assistant but he also brought eight years of experience. Running the world's most popular search engine the financial times. Points out. I mean sorry. It doesn't mean that apple is in creating an alternative to google i. I'm going to go ahead and keep reading. And then we'll i should have read the whole thing right. Experts financial times talked to Some of whom used to work for google. Say it wouldn't cost that much for apple to do this. And that apple has hired the talent to do it. That apple could do it because you can't just go in license somebody else's search technology if you're going to be an alternative google. I did not know until. I was reading the financial times story here and this could explain. Why dot go. I love duck duck. Go doug goes. Was privacy focused search engine and you can go there instead of google and you can type in your queries. And they're not being tracked and that's great They rely on being. It turns out their licensing beings technology. Now still your information as dang between you and duck duck go. It's not going anywhere. It's anonymous all that stuff. It explains why duct that goes results. Aren't necessarily as good as you might want. Duck tuck duck goes results to be apple. Can't just skin being. They can't just skin duck. Oh right they have to come up with something better if they're going to compete with google but not everybody thinks they're going to compete with google. Dan wong associate professor of business at columbia business. School said it would be extremely difficult for apple to ever catch up. Go-goes advantage comes from scale. He said and the endless user feedback helps to tune results and identify areas of improvement. Google gets hundreds of millions of queries every minute from users all over the world. That's an enormous advantage when it comes to data surprising. No one apple declined to comment for the financial times all right. There's so much about this. That's interesting and also i think kinda wrong in what. The financial times is arguing first of all. They're saying that apple is doing this because they're worried about losing the twelve billion dollars nine to twelve billion dollars that up. A apple gets every year from google for being the default search engine. I use siri as often as i can. I know people who don't use siri at all. Google still spending nine billion dollars even if he does get better. Google spending nine billion dollars for apple would not be a waste of money because there are lots of people who are always going to google it. They're not going to ask siri for whatever reason. I know that. When i'm out of the store i don't ask siri because i don't like to talk in public. I don't like to you know. Spread my business around. If i'm worried about a search engine tracking me. I'm certainly going to worry about you. Know saying out loud the grocery store or well. That's the only place. I go now saying out loud to the grocery store what i'm searching for. Nobody else needs to know that. At that point i will start typing stuff in at that point. Is it google that i'm going to. I have set my default search engine to duck duck go and that is another thing that this whole of this seems to sort of ignore. I mean the fact that we do have choices at this point. And i would imagine that somebody at least at apple will go ahead and argue. That what google is playing for is placement because people are lazy or people like google or don't realize they change it even though apple has made it clear that yes you can. Google earth could still pay nine billion dollars a year and not lose their money even if apple gets better at what. It's doing now as far as apple trying to build a search engine. That's going to replace google. I don't think so. I don't think apple is trying to replace a bill. The search engine that everybody is going to go to. Because i don't think apple wants that kind of headache. I think all of this stuff about siri better and about apple's being better. I think all of that is true. I think what apple would like is instead of going to any search engine you pick up your you ask a question you get your answer not kicking over to the. Here's what i found on the web. Not thinking oh. I need to go to google or i need to go to ulta vista wherever it is. I need to go to look up stuff. I need to ask jeeves by. Golly i think that's the part of this whole thing. That actually excites me. The most the idea that my virtual assistant could become more of an assistant unless a virtual thing that it could become a a source that i turned to to ask questions and get answers
Nutrition for Gravel Cycling with Kristen Arnold
"This week on podcast. We've got sports nutritionists and professional cyclists. Kristen arnold kirsten has a masters degree in science and human nutrition from ohio. State university is a usa level to cycling coach with source endurance. End racist professionally with the butcher box racing team. I've always got a million questions about nutrition and it certainly a topic. That's coming up in the new ridership for them. Kirsten helps us break down. What to think about eating the week before an event during an event and after an event i thought it'd be useful to think about it in that context just because a lot of us these big events. One hundred miler. That's a big unusual ride for us. We're not doing that every month in are cycling career. We're just kind of peaking for something. That is really extreme in terms of what our body is used to. So it's important to kind of think about that not only in your physical preparation but also nutrition and hydration. Christine does a great job of breaking down the things you should be thinking about before the event during the event to give yourself the best chance for success. She's got some fantastic takeaways for us. All and a few little tricks that i hadn't thought about so. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Let's jump right in kristen. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me craig. I'm excited to get into the topic of nutrition with you. But i always like to set the stage for the listener to get a little bit more of an understanding about your background. Since you've got a background both professionally. Nutritionist but also as a professional cyclist once you give us a little bit of both okay So i kind of make my living in three different ways right now and I went to school for nutrition. So i have an undergraduate degree and dietetic and then got my registered dietitian or credential Ended up getting my masters of science and human nutrition then became a certified specialist sports dietetic. So i was in school for eight years Nutrition and So open my private practice. Sports died headaches. Company in twenty fourteen and then started coaching Cycling in sixteen hour with source endurance. And i've been reading on the professional road circuit and twenty sixteen and now rethink for butcher. Box pro cycling. Wow that keeps you busy. Yeah we've had a couple episodes recently where we've touched on things that i would fall in the realm of nutrition and i was excited when we connected just to bring you on board and talk from the athlete's perspective about how my listeners might improve their overall nutrition nutrition and such because such a massive field and something that everybody needs to spend time thinking about and integrating into their lives. I thought we would just think about it from the perspective of an athlete. Who may be only doing a handful of events a year so not a professional cyclist by any means but someone who's peaking for an event that may be way out of the ordinary for them so think about like a two hundred mile gravel race an sp t gravel or amid south gravel event. So let's try to break down the conversation by starting. You know if you have one of those big peaks senior year. How should you be approaching it. Nutritionally in the week leading up. And then how should you be approaching your nutrition during the event. Okay all right so we're gonna talk about the week before and the day of a big event There is some research to show that what people call carb loading is effective. And what this means is that you are eating High proportion of your calories up to seven to ten grams per kilogram body weight of carbohydrates per day. and what's that doing. it is super saturating or glycogen stores so for endurance athletes especially cyclists with these long gravel event Even though a lot of the time you'll be below threshold the majority of the type of effort. You're going to be doing it. Relies on glycogen and so the main goal with Going into the event to make sure that those lijun thursday or as full as possible if not fuller than they normally are And then that also goes for hydration so ulta making sure that we have adequate hydration stores and meeting knows with fluid and electrolyte so short version of that is to Continuously e carbohydrate rich foods throughout the day for up to a week before the event and then also making sure to hydrate well with electrolytes every day consistently throughout the day.

"ulta" Discussed on MarketFoolery
"The scale i mean it just. It's really hard to argue against what this business is doing. Target and ulta beauty have announced a deal to open make up and beauty shops inside of target stores. This is going to be starting in the second. Half of two thousand and twenty one. Essentially these will be mini versions of an ulta beauty store in more than one hundred target locations across the country. We don't know the financial terms of this deal. But shares of both are up ulta beauty shares up more than target. This really seems like a win win. That was my impression. When i one i read through this through this deal earlier this morning i really do feel like it's a great deal for both sides. I i would venture a guess that target sees more foot traffic than ulta on a daily basis. I think he'd probably agree with that. obviously obviously target has a massive footprint around the country and and elsewhere but i mean this is really this is really a domestic play here and ulta ultimate for has always been a really really good perform. I think they got caught in a difficult situation with The pandemic earlier on because so much of their success has really relied on on foot traffic and physical presence right. They have that dynamic to the business. That is that salon dynamic where you know if you're gonna get your hair done. You can't get that done. virtually right. You'd actually be at the place and you know when you look at things like hair care products tool services. I mean that makes up a good twenty five percent of their sales so it's not it's not crucial but it certainly played out on their financials earlier in the year. This deal with target. I think is really smart just from a number of angles for ulta more so than target i think because ultimately look cosmetics skincare bath and fragrance those those categories altogether throw hair care products in there as well. But you're talking about seventy five to eighty percent if not more of total revenue there in that really that really just lines up with the kind of stuff that target is selling to begin with and so i regard to the actual finances of the deal. That's that's unclear. And maybe it's just kind of you know a quid pro quo thing here. Where target gains traffic and alta gained sales by virtue that traffic target benefits from incremental sales from that traffic. I'm not sure but they're definitely going to gain another traffic driver so to speak and in a very relevant category. I mean this is a category that. It's very resilient i mean. It's just amazing to look at this. This market over the years in into to see its resiliency in and i think ulta ulta has a very strong brand in the space in and so for them i think he was always trying to figure out how they could go beyond. Just the ultimate store in. I think this is one way to do it. They've also made a lot of investments in e commerce and some immersive technology..

"ulta" Discussed on The CMO Podcast
"Facilitate experiences like curbside. We had stood. We stood up opus buy online pick up in store last year. Great. Awesome start. People loved it. That gave us the ability to within a month stand up curbside once we shutdown stores and the APP is heated at experience to. So, if he had a boil down to one lesson to CMO's listening I remember Domino's years ago got ahead of their category with their digital experience and the resources they shifted and the consumer work they did to uncover insights they got unlocking then deliver on work behind those insights. If there's one major level piece of advice that you could say in one or two sentences to CMO's who would like to emulate what you've done what would it be? I will tell you something that I think is an internal secret sauce around that we look at it as a holistic business initiative. It's not a digital business initiative and I think that's been key to our success. Super Now. So anything you've learned about consumer behavior that may not be obvious over the last seven eight months. I mean Claire talked about her bathroom is now her spa that's certainly one. Maybe that's obvious. Obviously, ECOMMERCE is booming etcetera etcetera. But what fundamental I mean will the store ever be the same coming out of this I mean wh what sort of other consumer insights that you'd like to share well I I'll go back to something else Clare said about Ulta beauty and what it's meant to her during this time, which is joy. She is the word joy. And, the I think there is a fundamental human truth in that and we've really anchored on that during this time period and we had the brand. At set up around, get thinking about beauty as joy and not superficial and thinking about the beauty beauty being able to unlock possibilities and I think that set us up really well to spark that because I think what we've learned. Or what we've may be corroborated is that beauty does bring people joy. And in the dark times, we could be the late and and help people. So I think that's one thing and then you wrote it shifted so fast for us at the beginning, the consumer behavior was really about hand sanitizer and and you know soaps and things like that. Then it moved really quickly into do it yourself. And then into wearing masks will now what my eyes look like, what does my hair look like? So I think the idea of seeing around corners and hyper relevance and understanding how things are shifting i. mean we thought things were shifting fast before. That seeing around corners I think is fundamental to because it's it's just changing all the time. How have you changed organization or your own time for that matter to enable you to see around the corners. While a big focus for our consumer insights team is pulse checks weekly and that. We've basically had to de prioritize a lot of work I mean that whole idea of simplification in the organization during this time period. I, think is key I'll talk about that in a second but. That focus of getting that team almost solely focused on understanding how people are shifting week to week. Big Perception, and then within beauty has been has been really key. So I I would say that's probably one of the biggest changes. The other one I'll go back to the idea of simplification. We've had to do so much more connecting as a leadership team and I think this is a really important lesson. To, be able to drive simplification decisiveness. At a new level and I look over here as we're speaking about this on my wall in my office and I've got a page that I wrote. On the sixteenth of March in is a simplification prior physician decisiveness clarity. And that has really been my Mitra north as a leader at I think that connection to be able to simplify, prioritize, decide things quickly and be super clear for our teams as has really been key. Shelly. We WanNA pause on that way because had such such an important lesson right now, I've been doing lots of CMO roundtables in the evening been doing podcast every week and that theme since the pandemic of taking responsibility to cut through the clutter focus on the most important things to open up space in your people's lives to deal with everything you're dealing with. With their their health, their families health there everything you know what's going on around us in society. So never never it's always been important but never more important to do those four things that you just said and I think coming out of the pandemic, they will remain important and there's no turning back. Now turning back I mean those are I, I look at it as a double down. On. Those things that we always knew important but kind of struggled with I think we all struggle with those things because our our appetites to move fast and create an impact the business are. Bigger than the capacity that we have I mean that's a tale as as time. So I think the lessons that we've learned here about that and to your point about how leadership needs to take the responsibility to do that and a lot of it is lying aligning mean we needed to make the space for us to spend the time. To align. And be much more. Simple and focused how much time do you think your leadership team spending together versus before the pandemic? Two X three x six six. Six we at the beginning, we had leadership team meetings every night, and then filled in during the week. That's we used to have one one hour a week. So that's been that's been really key and and we've just. I'm really lucky to have amazing counterparts. and. I think my lucky stars for it every day because we can. We can really talk through it and get to the place that we think is best and we respect and appreciate each other's angles. And that all starts with a strong culture strong people. So that's another thing that set us up to be able to to do this. We're going to talk about that in a few more minutes but I want to sort of do a little bit of a hit the rewind button on your career. You've been out ULTA for six years but before that and you've been CMO for about nine months right of those six years. But before that, you worked Kellogg's you worked at quaker, which is part of Pepsico you worked in the big research company JFK and then Alta, those are all great companies and I'm sure you learned a ton when you were there. But you've been part of one of the absolute greatest gross stories of our times you know your top line is double versus when you start it. And you're super hot brand with consumers that we as we heard one testimonial for my daughter a few minutes ago. So. I'd like you to share with our listeners. You know what's that playbook been? You know if I ask you to write a business book about this what would you call it? What would the chapters be? Chapters is a good word to use. That's how.

"So what does it feel like to even like be in stores, like Ulta beauty? And, you know, have that type of exposure to the masses, I think it says a lot, I think it says that the ultra team saw value in the story and what experience maybe the brand could provide for their customer. I'll never forget going out to meet with them and waiting, I think, over the next week to hear if we got in or not, but it was it was the type of conversations. We were having at that meeting. It was their passion for providing that three sixty experience for their customer, their customers so many different things. She so many different shades and hues, so many different personality types. And when they, they admitted to that when they said. Those exact words that this was missing and that beauty bakery. Could bring that I was just thrilled because it meant it gave my whole story, my struggles every polka those needles. Everything it gave it all like validity in some ice, did they approach you or did you reproach them? I'm sure lots of entrepreneurs out there, trying to wondering, like, how do I do the same thing with my product? Like, how did you even get a seat at the table with all also beauty? I think all to approach us. I think, again, they come across the story wanted to hear more. And I think that sitting down and talking with them, along with a member of my team really connected the dots from what they read, and what they see online to like a face to face meeting. It's like oh, she is what, what she says she is. This is the real thing. So ju like check the store, the website like to see if it's real, it's almost like pinching yourself, do that.

Like we're always, there's always some thing going on. And I was really focused on fixing whatever was broken that day. And the team was like, you know, do you wanna do you wanna go see the display as slid on, how shoes of somebody's office about size twelve or thirteen and my hair was not combed? And I said, you guys promise. We're not gonna take picks this. We're not gonna take fix and I went over there and I snuck in. I didn't want anyone to know it was me and just I'm just like. My Dustin off the shell and the in a mom to the show. Of course, shirts like when like artists here like their song for the first time on the radio or second, or the third time, we're whenever it's like a pinch me moment over and over. It is over and over even just being in my office is a pinch me moment when people come to the door of my office, and this is their job, you know, and, and this is their nine to five in their mind. Right. And so they come to my door and they and they have this look on their faces.

I am doing super. What can I do for you? I'm calling. Problem. I'm having trouble hearing, you are you have a flea problem with dog or cat. Okay. Listen to me carefully. Here's what we need to do. Okay. Number one. Is when you have a flea problem. You have to make sure it's fleas. Have you seen the fleas? Yes. Okay. So what you need to do. Here's a way. And this is the worst flea season ever believe me, I even have it with my own dog. Here's what I do. I take some all natural herbal fleece spray, and I spray it on my pet that oh draw the fleas out from underneath. Then would I use? I use a flea comb at those people don't know what a fleet comes anyone out that doesn't know to flee commies. It's old school will take it from warrant it works. It's got real close teeth. And what happens is because I've used the Ogden natural fleas spray the fleas pop app. I used to flee calm. It takes off any fleas takes off their poop is well. Now, remember, the fleas will live. So what you need to do is take a little bowl would be the water alcohol. And once you come out the fleas dip it in the water all the alcohol now die, but you have to do it every day off. Also because it's an all natural herbal fleece brave. You can spray it around their bedding area where they sleep all the other areas where they might hang out. That's the way to get rid of you need to train the pet with something that's all natural and get that off a lot of people don't realize that fleas can be more a lot more than just a nuisance. They can actually cause a lot of problems anemia.

"Build on dot net. Core build on as Beatles at core day have their own abstractions, and so each container must have an integration peckish. Yeah. Right. You'll model so Ulta fach had integration for empty see integration for that. API integrations for signal are etc. Structure at the same. Simple. Gesture the same. And so they wanted to end that's endless number of Becca choose that everybody has had to create and maintain. So that was idea. So therefore, they cooked up an abstraction. The problem is this that the I containers are so incompatible with each other. When it comes to direct registration API that it's impossible to define an API that works for everybody. And well, Ulta FEC again is in behavior quite close to original abstraction because dead was what Microsoft used to test with I imagine. Yeah. I think that the designers were using Ofek internally. Right. And we're experienced with all the FEC, and that's how they build their own container and based on their own implementation. Day created an abstraction. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Natural bias then. And so the implementation details are also leaking into the abstraction. Sure. It's very talented to build this trashing like that. Once you understand enough deactivated. You pretty much figure out. There's there's no commonality. Exactly. Right. Or at least there is some commonality. But it's just too little to to to build a least common denominator. Yeah. Becomes a non thing. Right. Like, just as it doesn't actually do anything for you then. Yeah. So what works as an? Abstraction is something that resolves. And that's what we had an API the dependency resolve her it wasn't interface with while Mets methods get serfs or get instance. I'm not sure what what what it was. Right. But that's pretty safe because that's just asking the container. Oh, I assume you have for configuration. Give me an instance, which is completely the opposite of specifying. What you want to register because then you get into order all registrations out to build up decorators how to register them. How to handle collections how to handle fullback scenarios how to handle generic typing, and those are all areas that you see that abstraction fails in because it simply isn't something you you can extract. Right. And and there is where things went fortunately wrong. And that's why a lot of the maintainers were quite frustrated. Stephen. I'm going to interrupt you for just a moment for this.

"There's just something so beautiful about taking a moment every single day in your life to stop what you're doing look around. You appreciate the things around you. It was for me. Just literally yesterday I was taking teeny to the park, and I was kind of being distracted by a lot of things I had my handbag her baby bag had my phone, and I decided to just put everything down just admire the beauty of nature around me. And the time that I was spending with my daughter, and I felt this moment of just pure gratification in feeling like this is the moment, that's so precious and so beautiful and I wanted to cherish it with teeny into just show her that nothing else mattered in that moment, except our mommy daughter time at the park as I pushed her on the swing and that really to me is kind of what daily gratitude is all about it does. Have to be complicated. It's a simple act of appreciating an understanding just how beautiful things are around you and in your life. And when things try to stop you and your tracks and life gets difficult. There's even power in that to stand in gratitude. And like we said in the show a positive attitude on gratitude is the way to combat everything on a daily basis into help you lift up and praise. What's important? This message is a really important one. And I have to thank Ulta beauty for sponsoring allowing me to share it with you guys. And I loved it. They also stand in the beauty of gratitude understanding what that's all about. Because Ulta beauty believes that beauty is limitless Ulta beauty celebrates the possibilities in each person.
