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:

FAST COMPANY

CNBC

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."

NYSE INTERVIEW

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.

Onward!
