Welcome back. Here are the six quick questions. Question number one is, what's your why? Why are you waking up every day and working on till it? I just love seeing chefs feel really proud in the kitchen when they're wearing our clothes. It's like when I see like a woman put on a chef coat that actually fits her and makes her feel really good and proud in her career. There's like nothing better than that feeling. Oh I love that strong, powerful question number two is what's been your favorite marketing moment so far? My favorite marketing moment. I mean, I think the Chase Grant was probably like the biggest, oh my God, because they also did like this cute little video with us. And at the time, we had no money to make our own cute little video. It wasn't like today where like, you know, everybody has an iphone. It's like they said a whole production crew and it was like played a lot of places all over linkedin. It was like on the chase. It was like in chases. It was like pictures of me and my partner that was probably like the craziest one. Um I know that was a while ago but I still, it's like, still a very proud moment.

Love that question. Number three is, what's your go to business resource? Where do you turn now if you're kind of leveling up, upskilling, learning something new. My friends, my network, um other entrepreneurs. I can't even, I know I started off talking about that too but like, I can't even sing praises enough from like leaning on your community to bounce ideas to ask them. How did you do this? Um I have a crew of women founders who I have dinner with like once a month. I have several other e-commerce founders who are in the same, you know, have different products but also work with hospitality that like I'll call be like, how did you deal with this? Da da da da da. So like just use your network, tell them about your problems, get naked about your numbers, all of those kind of things. Mhm mhm I love that. Love a good network. We've got magic for any early stage founders who are looking for community are looking for network. Come and check us out. Question number four is how do you win your day?

What are your AM or PM rituals and habits that keep you feeling happy and successful and motivated to keep going? My Am ritual is yoga and coffee for sure. Um I try to always start my day with exercise. I feel like you need that, like me personal space time, end of day, it's putting my kids to bed and reading a story with them and we always have a family dinner. So that's, you know, pretty much five nights a week. At least we sit down, have dinner as a family. No phones. What did you do today? What did you learn? How was your day? And that definitely like is the best way to end my day. Beautiful question number five is what's been the worst money mistake you've ever made? And how much was it in the business? Well, definitely the worst money mistake we made was with goods and we burned. I think we ended up burning like $50,000 in that one. It's a pretty big one. A pretty big one. Pretty big one. Question number six. Last question. What is just a crazy story?

Good or bad that you can share from your journey in building till it a crazy story? Good or bad. I mean, I think the crazy good thing is that you'll never know who your customers are. So, I mean, just to bring it back to that story about like the first customer that we hand delivered the product to that ended up becoming the the chef who was in charge of all the solo houses who landed us this this client and we ended up doing like a quarter million dollars of business with Soho House that year, which is like shit crazy. Yeah, it's crazy. So I think that's like a holy shit, like that's like a holy shit. Um So you like treat everybody like they're your best customer because you never know. Um Wow, the LTV of that client is crazy. He's still an amazing client, like still buys from us today. Yeah. Wow, that is so cool. What a cool story, Jenny.
