Let's talk about your first million no because they say that's the hardest the first billion was it the hardest.
-- Yes I think you could say it was the hardest and -- the same time -- -- When you're sixteen and young I think you're more ambitious than you would be.
You've made less mistakes I think you felt less pain and less problems.
And so I think you've got nothing to lose nothing to lose exactly you got no responsibility.
-- to worry about your kids or anything like that up.
Exactly you just went forward and I think the ones that came afterwards became a little bit more nerve racking because you get nervous so every business afterwards not everything -- -- with.
So when you learn from your mistakes I think as.
Someone -- chores and gets older they become a little bit more cautious a little bit more calculated and especially business decisions and business and embers in so I think that that built from that learned a lot from that built up foundation for myself.
But still trying to learn from what mistake did you learn the most from.
I think sometimes being too overconfident.
And thinking that I would know it all myself -- and so as.
I began to evolved in maturity businessperson.
I began to understand the importance of teamwork.
Of people of a culture within a company and also really you know doing something with passion as opposed to.

On your goals because.
If you set a -- you can never exceed the cap and I think that with life business and passion the sky's the limit.
He's always set something beyond.
Any kind of realistic goal currency you have even though you you make a mistake in in shooting two for you got it set -- -- goal for yourself that may be beyond what you think it's possible.

But there's so much competition.
In this in this field and teenagers and who was a large part of the focus that -- you're trying to reach.
They're so fickle does not concern you.
It does but I think that's the that this advantage and the advantage as well because I am young and I feel that I have a good pulse.
I don't I don't have much very much off time went off time I enjoy.
Looking at what people Wear sitting on the street just seeing how people where where what they're wearing and how they walk with it or what they like -- what colors are.
