No because my goal is to make my business successful so I can bring people and I'm starting to hire people which is a really amazing thing especially hiring people that are talent and I'm designing people -- hiring people that are in the design world and can draw.
And I think that's a gift that -- -- live has the hiring going because we also hear.
People saying all the time that they cannot find.

That -- watching you listening to your story thinking about setting up a small business and really biting the bullet and doing it.

And there's a tremendous amount of resources out there.
Our offices are based in New Jersey and we work with scorers with -- a local program where there is retired business people.
That meant Terry Young business people.
And they give great advice and that has been big and it's just like is that talk to everybody knows talked to the person on the plane sitting next to see you know everybody can help you.
