And and that is the science behind your utter sham that and say yes exactly so. What is it in your company it's OW they can't care plans Alan Herrick. And and actually turning to Ernst and you're walking around and ours that yeah. So we and I kind of got started I had this idea I travelling on time through it and it came on this liquid hair care. Which is really especially through TSA yeah. Exactly what re doing before he started the company. He started making it means east Los Angeles needed you know technology based coatings. And which seems really far away from here camp yeah. It's actually coatings inks paints are all kind of and when you talk about each. Game in the something it's like cooking in kitchen like moving and making a cake tea and making cookies and so you started to tell the story I think you need it yeah. Wireless air fares which I get back and yeah absolutely so I originally had planned. And trying different things like there's shampoo bar which is like this college and new. And essentially you know. There's no water seeking to get through TSA is my big thing travel only carrier and I think it's wears in catcher from yeah. And that either way. So island. I started looking for like a powder that would just rehydrate with water when he makes it in your hands that would function just like Reagan championed. And sending guests as well let me see if you. And I did tell them where you got the skill set to be to develop. At the peak of this idea and execs yes absolutely so I'd definitely make him clinching an act and through RET. And analysts and interested and make sustainable cosmetics as well. And and then the other thing lives just learning how to take that product from ninety oddly tube the finished product and bring it to market. So is a combination of things isn't one single thing in and also my collapse. Through RIT very helpful. In its.

I have to be Appleton lap it up and make bets on the hardest part about being encounter turner absent. And it's actually kind of a good thing in a bad thing and it's the risk you know. And I love the uncertainty it but at the same time and Italy's traveling I don't know when in the scenic and their family again. And that's probably the most difficult part but at the same time it's the fun part so carcass it's what you yeah. The challenges like that beat number and just communication you know on the show and that penalties in touch with everyone and everyone knows that you you know sometimes and traveling in the country and cell service and it's like my feeling here stimulants and Aaron and I really don't I.
