Jobs in California -- to be serious hit.
A -- -- founder and CEO of e-commerce site -- notes dot com.
Joins us now with more actually that's not -- -- -- e-commerce anymore you are more of -- media company media platform you started out e-commerce exactly and then because some.

So so that -- -- you are in touch with what's going on in the wine world what are these guys -- I mean they move their vineyards mother nature bless this part of the country.
They can't move that -- Absolutely and as a super majority in California now -- pre election and so people actually anticipate higher taxes if not regressive taxes.
So I think it's actually a little scary at a time we've I'm from Chicago originally we talk I'm moving the businesses -- Illinois potentially.
It's it's it's -- time where I don't necessarily believe that the state of California's friendly small business and it's certainly.
As far as sign on the research I've done honestly friendly to wineries who are who as you say can't move who bring in I mean 61 point five billion dollars absolute from the wind changed absolutely and then -- -- -- because those guys cannot move they will end up picking picking up -- -- I agree with you completely.

Are investing in traditional e-commerce sites which says to -- the big media companies know that they need to diversify their business model.
Not just be an average case advertising based business model but also potentially commerce sent to sell stuff to is basically what was exactly so.
They now -- -- the ability to sell stuff through one Kingsley and home furnishings.
