What a crazy month. Forever Labs hired three people this month. We will hire 4 more in the next two months. Lot's of press around the closing of our round. Here are some links if you're interested:
On Monday, mk and I were interviewed on the floor of the NYSE. That was pretty fucking dope. Being there, aware of the history in that building and the surrounding buildings was a very cool experience. It provided us a moment to reflect on how far we have come. You can watch this interview below and see a VERY RARE occurrence in nature.... I am of course referring to mk wearing a suit. After seeing it, ecib said, "well it only took you 3 years but you finally got Mark to wear a suit."
We also interviewed with NowThis, Women's Health and Well + Good. I think we are getting good at this whole PR thing :)
Still, what matters are client signups and the past two months have been pretty stale there. Still, I am encouraged because the plan is working. The plan is to switch from direct to consumer signups to signups that come straight from physician referral. It's a far more "scaleable" model. While our numbers have been flat for April/May the number from physicians referral is increasing.
We also have our second "product," coming. This is super exciting for us.
I am heading to the mountains of NC this weekend for some much needed R&R with my family. I will literally turn my phone off all weekend. I need to unplug for a bit.
I hope that you are all doing well. I talk about Hubski often, it's part of the genesis story of Forever Labs.
- I'm guessing she's just trying to make it easier to move on. Not that it makes a difference, since, y'know, law-breaking.
I was recently talking with a girl friend about how sexy French accents are on women and she replied that American English accents are considered sexy by European women. So... go get 'em tiger, but mach es den deutschen Frauen leicht
Nice to hear from you. Playing any drums while over there?
Listening to Stan Getz today.
Listened to “The Vaseline’s,” yesterday.
LOL. Best possible solution. I actually have come to terms with Bill Cosby being a monster. It's pretty crazy for someone of my generation. I grew up with him up there with Mr. Rogers in the social hierarchy of people you should trust. Cosby had Picture Pages and Fat Albert when I was a really little kid and then came the Cosby Show and he was literally americas dad. Everyone loved the show. It crossed all social demos.
Just nuts to think that the whole time he was a serial rapist. I know that some people can separate the two but I can't. I can't see or hear anything from him now without thinking about him being a monster.
Actually, I find it refreshing. If most people knew how many articles were promoted information, they'd be shocked. As someone that works closely with a PR firm now, it's amazing how the whole thing works.
FWIW, We didn't pay for the piece, but they are running an affiliate program giving their readership a referral code to use for a discount. Hubski users ought to PM me directly now or any time in the future for a discount.
