I should've remembered that from the shark tank or that are out that was what you said on the on the shark thing episodes so. Certainly there and terms of this business and how it has grown. How how has it been for you I mean this is your son he is so young and to see him have so much success. Tom how how has it how is the ride been for you. It's it's great actually just seen him from forty years ago or earlier are your go wanting to address and belt in a student tried to read it right. Angry and not knowing exactly where it would lead us. They see it on our report your vote now at eighteen years I'm really excited that he decided to continue on in a pat that of action. Not even knowing about what he was born to do well. How much work has this been behind the scenes how many meetings nominee fly imagine a ton right it's not a war taught at our. At fellow who lack the time lat that meeting the late and I. I'm making sure he built a crowded and gifted education and you know it's cool required aunt learn how to spell. A QB you know our a lot of meetings that I would not completely familiar with but an effort here I'm not allow high uncooked lie. And to really meet the hat the gold picking want. It required me kind of get my game. I imagine that for you I mean. Did you have a busy a background in business because. You know this is not it is it's a business and it's Hewitt tomorrow you know I mean it is how to how have you sort of navigated. You know there have been at times treacherous waters of operating your own business have you have you had a trying to help people that to lean on how has that kind of right and. It's deliberate yet having having a great that would light like the car takes a village that child a minute case. Stick to military the talc and Iran have been Nextel really heavily reliant country our family and ran an ad in the image I've ever had that great read doors. And I am just having ups like Tommy Hilfiger who called mulch and detonated I mean eat something being able called him Jerry captor could be yell at Neiman art is. Being able to reach out to the deep ball. And dumb and act cold hard questions that I'm not really familiar let. And and they've release it because I am want to be beat the mother of my and that really didn't deter I don't know and the push to get where we're going to.

People all over the place coming actual trying to get a pets right now on how tough had been out. And have their Benetton I'm sure there have. Benetton and then a ton of apps actually media coverage during my mullah. I'm impact you're in the media it and then there's backed up coverage and there's a positive and negative feedback but I like Kerry might get dished eight pocket keep your eye on the prize you know who you are and where you want to note ballot Pat The Bat what we're what we're public acts you want to get fashion designer out. We art to doing whatever we can't do you begin white. Whether he's on his way up clearly added I think he's got a great CRE. In that room we are talking to trigger bridges the monitor. Mode bridges of most of those. How do you do that how do you deal with the balance because like you said I mean. If you wanted to realistically. They could stop going to school right now and just do this full time I mean it's been that successful. So how do you and how do you get him to not do that I guess how do you get him to. It's Jeep without the prize to get the education. While also like making tons of money and having tons of success with this business I imagine that is and as a delicate balance. It could definitely a delicate balance especially now that either teenagers now. Coupled gut punch hit it can't hurt any IQ. You journeyed integrate their big garbage. At one point left a hole that come out and not be ever so now it's hard to corporate elite and yeah I literally have to know any great the lead after it left there are multiple action.
