YHP Interviews Nick Ferguson, Founder OF Sustain Fitness

Nick Ferguson

Hey Nick, how is it going? Thanks for your time.

Thanks Joseph, busy as always! Thanks for the opportunity!

Can you give us some background information about yourself?

I have been an athlete in many different sports over my lifetime, from a runner to football, to martial arts to cycling! Cycling was my final sport, I loved the freedom of it and the huge amount of dedication you had to have, just to be competitive. I went on to win 2 Junior national titles in 2006 and started developing further from there. I always loved being competitive and following after things I enjoy doing. When I was ‘growing up’ I could never work out what I wanted to aspire to, which frustrated me greatly! I thought, ‘how am I meant to plan out my life if I don’t know what I want to do?’ School was a bit of a struggle, although I did well, I didn’t really want to be there, I would have much preferred to be out training or learning something more applicable knowledge instead.

When I’m doing work, study or cycling, I like to play guitar, mix up music and play with fire – Seriously!

So tell us how you got into the fitness business?

I sort of fell into the fitness business.. It all started out because of getting hospitalised with pnemonia. I was in my final year at school, and was literally 4 days away from the national championships and I came down incredibly sick. I ended up losing my sponshorship and scholarship with cycling and was left a bit high and dry. I still hadn’t worked out what I wanted to do regarding my future career, and figured I better make a decision quickly! I wanted to do something different from what other people did – or at least what I thought they did… i.e try as hard as you can at school, so you can get into the best possible university course, so that you might use it for your career and hope you work out what you want to do in the process. I wanted to be able to apply myself fully to whatever direction I chose, because I knew I would be successful and I knew I would enjoy it.

I wrote down all the things I enjoyed doing on a piece of paper and then wrote down jobs I was aware of that included those things. Some of the things I wrote down included: cycling, meeting new people, helping people, listening to music. Turns out there is a job where I could do all of this, and get paid!

I started out in the fitness industry as a Spin (cycling) instructor at Next Generation Gym in Adelaide. I just searched for a job that I thought would make me happy.

Why did you start your business? Why did you decide to start your business?

I didnt start my business straight away, it took me a while to decide to make the step. I began to get frustrated that I was only qualified to do one thing at the gym, teach spin classes, so I went and furthered my education and took on the personal trainer course full time. This allowed me to do nearly everything I could hope to do in the fitness industry and I figured I would start out by taking on more roles at the gym. As I studied and learned more about the fitness industry however, I found out more and more that the attitude, structure and function of gyms didn’t really fit in with my idea of health and fitness. It didn’t represent to me what it was all about.

The idea came to me to offer flexible fitness, what if I could bring the fitness to them? In their own environment? Take out the hassle of making the time to go to the gym, because I will come to them. I saw this as an opportunity to start something with relatively low capital to begin with and where I was able to help people in a way that a gym couldn’t always do. Come into their life and help them change it. I had created myself a job!

How is it like, being an entrepreneur?

That still seems such a strange term to be called. I always thought of entrepreneurs as people who turn nothing into something or something worthless into something huge and amazing! Being entrepreneurial has been one of the most liberating things for me though. I love the fact that any ideas, goals or aspirations I have, there is really nothing stopping me from trying to reach them. Often, there will be a lack of money, contacts, resources and time to make these ideas happen, but at least they aren’t being shut down by a boss that doesn’t share the same vision as I do!

The best part about it is the flexibility to follow whatever ideas you may come up with through to reality, the hard part is managing them all and choosing the best ones!

I think it is a diffifult thing to explain to others around you, particularly friends, exactly what it is you do. I’m still working that out myself…

At what age did you encounter your entrepreneurial experience?

I was 17 when I started Sustain Fitness, but looking back, I definately had some entrepreneurial flairs when I was younger, just lacked the confidence to follow anything through.

How did you raise money for your business?

Worked! I was working at the gym, earning $40 per week (one class). Lets say it was a tough few months start up… I had used my savings to pay for the personal training course, so I really relied on my new work coming through to put back into the business. I bought a basic array of exercise equipment for under $1000 and made use of that as best I could. This forced me to be very creative in my training methods and actually started out my fascination with bodyweight and minimal equipment training methods, which has been very successful.

Who are your main competitors?

Because of the relatively small amount of clients I work with and the specific nature of what I do, there aren’t too many other businesses I would consider a competitor. I say this because its not often I feel I have ‘lost’ a client to another business, its more I just haven’t found them yet! As Sustain Fitness has three main sections at the moment, I have different competitors for each.

The Fitness division has places like gyms, personal training studios and other personal trainers as competitors.
The Education division has places like Les Mills International and the Corporate division has other corporate fitness providers as competitors, but this isn’t yet a huge part of fitness in Australia. I’m watching this section quite keenly actually…

Is there anything you wish you had done differently?

I wish I had just taken the plunge and got some more funding straight up. Although its nice to be able to say I have done all this with no help, literally from scratch, I could definately be further down the track if I had some more financial support.

I would have spent more time on brand identity originally, to find out what it was I stood for (still working on this one) and I would have tried to remain more organized.

What have you done that has been very effective in helping to grow the business?

Building relationships. People buy from people they like and trust. I think the more people you can interact with, show you are a genuine person, and that you are just out to help others, people will be drawn to you. I believe honesty, integrity and respect go a long way in any relationship, business or otherwise, and I strive to uphold these values with everyone I meet, potential customer or not.

I also think that my ability to adapt and offer what this industry wants has allowed me to grow. Starting out originally as a Personal Trainer only, I quickly realised there was only so far I could take this. It was a job, and there was no business when I wasn’t working.

I always look for feedback from my clients and people I meet about what they need, what they want, how they are finding what we are doing currently and what needs to change. I am always looking to find things I can offer that benefits the customer first, which in turn can benefit me.

What motivates you to remain focused on growing your business/website?

Sometimes, I’m not sure about this one.. I know on a basic level, I have bills to pay, and I can’t just tell them to stop for a few weeks, because I want a rest from it all… I think my drive to succeed, and be the best I can be is a big part of it. This probably comes from all my years of sports. I know that natural ability can only get you so far, but your tenacity, drive and creativity will get you the rest of the way.

Probably the biggest part of if would be that I want to enjoy my life. I want to travel, I want to be fit and healthy. I want to go out for lunches and dinners with friends, date amazing girls and do amazing things. The more control and freedom I have in my life, both in free time and financially, the more likely I will be able to do the things I want to do. I just don’t see how holding down a ‘good safe job’ will let me do this. This is what keeps me focused.

What has been your greatest challenge as a business leader, and how did you overcome it?

Probably one of the hardest times I have had was quite recently, when the financial crisis had reared its head, as well as the winter down turn also. I saw a 75% cut in my income, and was barely scraping by. Savings were dipped into – it didn’t feel good. So, I got a bit creative and dreamed up a few projects through gyms, build up a list of clients, invested in some new equipment, put HEAPS of work into it, to find out the gym wasn’t allowing the project to go ahead. When you get these sorts of dissapointments, you can do two things, give up, or find another way. Sometimes finding another way means shelving the idea for a little while and working on something new.

As it turns out, the gym h as come back to me for a meeting, after overwhelming member feedback asking for it to go ahead! We may have progress yet…

You are currently planning a 6 week challenge to find Adelaide’s fittest guy, who is that going so far?

Really well! It started this Monday, kind of amazing really. It all started out over a few beers with a friend, where we challenged ourselves to a 6 week fitness challenge to see how fit we could get. Just over a week ago, I got called up by a radio station who were asking for my advice on how to prepare for a running event, which turned into a promotional opportunity, we found sponsors, a charity, put up forms on the website and the competitors started rolling in! You can get so much work done in so little time if you set yourself to task. This has turned into a good opportunity for me to showcase my training methods also, because I can show people my results on myself over the 6 weeks. Time will tell! It will be good fun either way.

Do you have anyone you model yourself around?

I like to keep up to date on what Robert Kiyosaki, Richard Branson and Skip La Cour are up to.. Twitter makes this easier I guess! That is one thing I guess, I haven’t found anyone who I model myself on just yet. I observe the positive traits of people around me and try to model those aspects to make myself a better person, and learn to avoid the negative traits I see in people too! Sometimes I will see a movie that has a powerful character, such as Tyler Durden from Fight Club, or even James Bond in any of the more recent films… Not necessarily going to go and blow up some Aston Martins or pick fights with myself after watching them, but they are cool guys none the less!

Do you have any favourite young entrepreneur at the moment?

I met some great guys over in Sydney earlier this year for the news.com.au Australian top 10 under 20 Entrepreneurs actually.
Young Entrepreneurs 2009

Miek Jarocki from creditcardfinder.com.au and Ryan Djurovich from Antevo (Sydney and Melbourne) are doing really well at the moment! Also Shaun Stenning from Aus with his SEO and online Marketing Business.

What is your favourite quote?

I have a few, but I really like ‘The difference between a goal and a dream is the written word.’ ‘Follow your bliss’ also comes to mind.

What advices do you have for young entrepreneurs contemplating or those that have actually started their business?

Stay focused! Don’t let anyone or anything come in your way of achieving what you have set out to achieve. Aim high, set a very clear goal of what you want to achieve, write it down and have it visible to you every day. The ‘how’ will probably seem crazy, but don’t worry too much, it seems to have a way of working itself out.
Surround yourself with positive, influencial people. Their support and their success can help motivate you to achieve better than you thought originally possible! My mentor, Tim has been very helpful in this whole process. If you don’t have a mentor yet, what are you waiting for?

Finally, don’t be afraid to pay for expert help. Be that advice, services or products. The right investments can pay for themselves many times over.

What should we be expecting from you in the future?

Hopefully I’ll be getting myself more onto the public speaking circuit, I’ll be conducting some seminars at our FILEX fitness convention in Sydney next year if all goes well… I have a few decisions to make in the next two months regarding which direction I fully commit to, but if all goes well, you will be seeing a line of Sustain Fitness Workout DVDs, new certified courses for Spin instructors and Fitness Entrepreneurs, plus some exciting new content online – Videos, challenges and new content (www.sustainfitness.com.au). It’s going to be hard, its going to be fun. Can’t wait!

Cheers

Interview with 20 Years old Entrepreneur

CECY2 - Copy

Hello, how are you doing today?

I’m fine thank you. Just a bit busy with planning for this summer’s catwalk shows.

Can you give us some background information about yourself?

I am 20 years old and was born on 12th May 1989 in Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania. Raised by a single mother, we used to travel a lot to the UK since I was a baby. Whilst there, I attended Academic International Primary School (AIPS) and my favourite subject was Art which I ended up winning an award in, for a real life drawing of my teacher. So, I have always been a very creative person from a very young age. My mum and I moved to the UK when I was 12, in 2002 and start a new life in Leicester where I attended secondary school, then college. Now I am currently at university studying Journalism & Public Relations.

Can you tell us about your company and what you do?

Cecy Ctyles is a new fashion brand that specializes in tailor-made ladies wear for special ocassions; from birthday celebrations to wedding receptions and even clubbing nights out.
We have an annual design catalogue which can be viewed on our online boutique http://www.cecyctyles.com. We have four collections so far; African, Club, Cexy corsets and Slasa wear and all the designs on it can be customized; from lengthening features to completely changing the fabrics used on them.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for from the catalogue, we offer free Fashion Consultations with our designers who will sketch unique designs for you and guide you through the whole design process. We have a wide range of fabrics (most of which is sourced from Tanzania) and accessories to chose from the create our clients’ ideal outfits. Clients may also provide their own designs and fabrics using our Tailoring Service.
Our prices are inclusive of customizations, delivery and tax, so what you see is what you pay. Designs are made and delivered within 5 working days and all orders are entitled to free minor alterations for three months.

What inspired you to start the business?

2009 FRONT PAGE - Copy

Well, I have always loved fashion and always wanted to be a Fashion designer. I used to make clothes for my Barbies when I was a little girl because I didn’t like what they were wearing. At the age 10, I started my own business in primary school, selling custom-made beaded jewellery, which I made myself, to young girls from my school which went very well until I moved to the UK and had to shut it down. So when I learnt how to make clothes for real people in school, I was so excited about becoming a fashion designer in the future.

BETS2

It was only during my first year of college that reality really sank in. I had made a wrap dress with leather cuffs & corset belt for my first AS Level textiles project that I had modelled at the Haymarket Schools & Colleges annual fashion show in Leicester. And after our catwalk, a lady from the audience ran up to me and said “I’ve been looking for you everywhere. I love your dress, can I buy?” I was 16 at that time so I offered to make her an exact copy of it as she said she was going to wear it on holiday in Spain. Her name is Roisin Tear and when I delivered her dress she said “you’re very talented and I think you should start your own brand with a website and everything”. So I did.

Who would you say your competitors are?

My competitors are mainly UK clothing retailers as they have been established for way longer than I have and they know exactly how the whole consumer industry works. But there are also a few UK tailors who are providing similar services to mine although their products are quite different. Cecy Ctyles is one of the first tailoring designer labels that gives its clients total say into their designs, with good quality products for an affordable price.

Who are your target markets?

It is aimed at women aged 18 to 35 years old who love looking glamorous by wearing unique designs.

JAIMIE3

Did you raise money to fund your business?

Yes, I do. When I first started it as a hobby, I had to fund it from my part-time job and my mum invested in buying the equipment for it. But since opening the online boutique in June 2008, it has basically funded itself. As I am concentrating on expanding it, all the money made from it keeps circulating within the business. I have my own separate source of income so I don’t have to dip into CC’s money at all. That way, the business is constantly funded without getting into debt.

What makes your design different from others?

Unlike other designs, Cecy Ctyles designs are interchangable and are undated. Our clients don’t have to get exactly what they see as they have the option of customizing the designs. And when it comes to fashion trends, we use classical features such as frills and slits that have existed since the beginning of fashion and will always be used. CC designs are simple but yet contemporary and they flatter the feminine figure.

How do you market your products?

Our products are marketed mainly through internet marketing whilst trying to establish a well known international brand name. Our main clients are from the University of Lincoln (where I study) so we advertise around the campus. CC takes part in a lot of fashion shows too e.g. this summer’s catwalk season; we have at least one fashion show every month from between June and October. We will be opening a new office in October this year in Lincoln as part of the expansion process.

Do you make your designs to season?

JACKIE6

Sort of. We have one annual catalogue so we make sure we design clothes with colours that blend in with all seasons. However the style of the clothes is ideally for summertime which is our busiest time of the year.

What fabrics do you use for your designs?

We use different types of materials depending on the collection. Our African wear collection is made of East African Kanga and Batik materials. The Batik we use is produced by our textiles designer Francis Nzengula who is part of our Tanzania team. And for the rest of the collections we use silky materials from satins (most of which are sourced from Tanzania) to chiffons; materials that are comfortable, flow very well and move with the body.

Do you feel your designs are relevant to today’s society?

Yes. Today’s society is more creative and a lot more picky than they use to be. Young ladies these days like to look smart and sexy for special occasions even if it’s just for a night out. And the older generation are looking for designs that will make them look younger as well as smart & sexy. And our designs are catered to those types of women.

When did you realise you were going to start up your business?

On the 2nd of June last year, the day when the online boutique was launched. My initial plan was to just display the designs on the website and keep updating it throughout my degree, then start up the business when I graduate. And when the website was complete, I just gave it to a few friends and within a few days, people we are asking to buy the designs. And that’s when I realised that this is it, there is no turning back now and no slowing down, I have to start building this business.

2009 TEAM

How has the entrepreneurial journey been so far?

It has been so much fun so far! I think because I consider myself a designer first then an entrepreneur second, I haven’t had to worry about financial problems or anything like that. My aim is to be famous and to see people wearing my clothes on a day to day basis. And if money comes along with it, then I’ll take it!
And so far, everything is moving five times quicker than I expected it to and I occasionally look back on it and think wow! It take at least most people at least 10 years just to get to the level that I am at and I did it in 4 years (considering that CC was just a hobby for the first 3 years). I am living my dream and wouldn’t change it for the world.

Do you have any role model/influence?

My role model is my mum. She raised me not to give up in life and to be patient as good things take time. Because of her, I have grown up to be very independent and am able to cope with whatever challenges life throws at me.

KAROL9

Who is your favourite fashion designer at the moment?

Jasper Conran is my favourite designer at the moment. I find it difficult to find clothes that fit me well because of my figure – which is why I don’t like clothes shopping and make my clothes instead. His clothes always fit me in all the right places and I love the materials he uses.

What advices do you have for someone looking to start their own business?

Be patient and never give up. Especially in the current economic situation, if you start up a business just to make money, then you will lose patience for it very quickly. Let your passion be greater than your entrepreneurship and you will gradually learn all the other business tactics. It is very hard work to be a successful businessman/woman and you have to make some sacrifices which will all be worth it in the future. Use all the talents you have to make your business succeed and appreciate everyone you meet along the way as they might be the ones who contribute to your success.

What should we be expecting from you in the future?

LAUNCH PARTY FLYER

Alot! CC is growing larger every day, so expect some great new designs and events in the near future. We now sponsor Miss Tanzania Europe and have a fashion show each month from June till October this year, so you will be seeing us nearly everywhere. The Cecy Ctyles official red carpet launch party is on Saturday 18th July 2009 in Leicester and it is just part of the beginning of this fun journey!

The Cecy Ctyles life is a dream come true for me and with God’s blessing, I will make it all the way to be an internationally famous fashion designer!

Thanks for your time and we all at YHP wish you the best in the future.

Interview with the founder of ItsUpshot, Sebastian Thiel

n555428114_2132745_436

Hello Sebastian, How’re you doing?

I am real good, just cre8ing as usual, working hard and staying on my hustle.

Can you quickly give us some background information about yourself?

I am 18, I was born in Zambia. I do graphic design, video editing & Creative direction work. I used to play basketball intensively, that was my life daily before I dropped out of college to start up Upshot.

Moving forward quickly, what inspired the creation of upshot?

The fall of another dream, that inspired me to create something else. I got Fed up of trying to go to the states for basketball. I initially started upshot to make money. My mission evolved once I realised what I could do with the brand, movement/family.

When was upshot born?

2007 August

I know you founded it, but how many people are involved in upshot?

2 Others are directly involved in the company in terms of ideas and so on, but there are many involved in what I call the upshot circle. The Upshot circle is put together of friends , family and talented people that support us and in return we help them in any way we can

Why start a business?

n36534080607_6910111_1494224

Because I am in control, I can do what I want & make my own decisions. I find it hard to work for people in jobs such as retail and so on. I have my own visions, i am too much of an individual to be trapped in the box of modern day slavery, Hence why I thought outside the box and cre8ed Upshot 😉

How intense is the competition out there? How do you manage to stay in check?

I say, don’t watch competition. So I don’t know how intense it is… Ok let me put it like this, if you’re in a race, u waste time when you look behind yourself to see your competition, even if it’s a split second, that look can make you loose the race. I prefer to stay on my track and watch my own pace. I trust my road & I know what my mission is. People will fall off in their own time; i am going all the way with this.

Who are your target markets?

Anyone, everyone, him, her , she , we, them. Upshots Universal. Just like music. However we may appeal more to young people.

What tools do you use in promoting your business?

Online sites & flyers.

What has been your proudest moment so far?

4302_190240825607_36534080607_6768719_2669260_n

Winning the big challenge. £8000 funding. Thanks to all the supporters for voting for us.

What do you think is the top 3 things to consider before starting up any business?

* Make sure theres a gap in the market for what your offering.
* Know that everything wont be all good, there will be good times, bad times and a lot of risk taking.
* Do research and a business plan.

What advice would you say to young entrepreneurs out there trying to start up their own business?

Just do it. That’s what I did.

What do you do in your spare time? Any Hobbies?

Basketball but not so much now, i dont have alot of spare time. I love events with live bands, comedy, so i reach quite a few.

What would you be doing if you didn’t start upshot?

Basketball & University – I would still be designning but on a really small scale.

If you could go back in the time machine, would you change anything?

4302_190240805607_36534080607_6768717_3179463_n

Nope as I probably wouldn’t be the same person and i wouldnt have attracted all these events into my life. One decision can change your day from what it could have been.

Do you feel the recession is a good time to start a business?

I guess so as a lot of people are coming out of work. It’s the times of doing it yourself if that’s your kind of thing.

When should we be expecting the launch of your website?

I am in the process of getting it revamped. So i am not sure when it will be active again.

What should we be expecting from upshot in the future?

I don’t want to spoil it for you. But I promise big things in the future from Upshot and myself.

Finally, why do you feel you’ve been so successful, what’s your tactics?

I don’t think i am successful yet, no way near, upshots an underground baby. I can say to get to the stage i am at now it took hard work and a lot of strategic coincidences 😉

FU8ERS

Sir-Bastian.

Thanks for your time.
Good luck with your business.

Interview with Mobo Award winner- Victizzle

l_305da2841434cb508594989e743e7e33

Hello victor, so glad you are able to do this interview with us today, how are you doing?

I’m great! Thanks so much for having me.

Can you give the readers some background information about yourself and what do you do?

Well I’m a Music Producer and Artist. I’m 19 and I’m in my 2nd year of University going into 3rd, studying Music and Media Management, And most importantly I’m a Christian and I’ve chosen to use music to help people living in struggle and pain but at the same time make people smile, laugh and have fun in life.

So how do you cope with university workload and being an artist?

NOT EASY mate…it’s very tough but i study what is related to what i do as a career so it really helps my music life. I’ve had to sacrifice so much but it’s always been worth it.

What does it mean to you to be a Christian artist?

It means Standing Out for what is right, Leading the way and not following the crowd, being different but unique in the way God made you. Representing Jesus! Having fun also (Laughter)

How is God reflected in your music?

l_b845b1d8e1b0b64c5a1257fb5b76f90b

I reflect God in my music through the stories of my life and what I’ve been through and how God got me through them. I choose not to hide anything from any one so that i can inspire people and show them that we must keep it real at all times. The more we keep it real the less we will be judged wrongly by others and the more people will listen to us when we speak. I use music to help people; God uses us as the solutions to people’s problems. So let’s be solutions, not problems.

Of all your own songs, do you have a favourite? Which song is it? Why is it your favourite?

My Favourite is ME MYSELF AND iPOD. I love it because it’s me in my most vulnerable and weakest form, but that’s when God’s power works more in me. The track is just so real and anyone can relate to it. The times when you’re on the road walking or on the bus/train alone and your with you iPod just in your own zone.

At what age did you realise music was your thing and when did you decide to go into it big time?

Music has always been my thing but i started making beats when i was 12 and started writing songs when i was 14, I’m now 19, so I’ve been into it for quite some time now.

You won a mobo award with your group then, g-force, how was the feeling? Why did you decide to go solo?

The whole MOBO thing hadn’t hit me till like a year later….
But it eventually made me realise that it doesn’t matter your age, you can fulfil dreams if you just believe and put the work in non-stop. I was always a solo artists, i was part of G-force as one of their main producers, but jumped on a few tracks as a Rapper and MC, but I’ve always been solo.

What inspires you to do music?

Anything inspires me, but it’s how you use that inspiration that matters. Do you use it for negativity or positivity? God and the Bible inspire me. The things we go through in life inspires me. My mum inspires me. My partner inspires me. I can find inspiration anywhere!

Do you have role model/influence?

My Mum and my Step Dad are my role models and my friends and some of the amazing people I’ve met in this life so far have become great role models for me.

You just released your album not too long ago called “In my world”, how has it been going so far?

l_f27fc066d8044e019b89b652f1aba8da

Not bad so far. The response has been amazing from a lot of people, which is great… many people are saying that the can relate to many of the topics and issues that the album holds, which is fantastic and that was the aim of the album in the first place, for people to connect.

Every artist has a reason for a song title and an album name, why did you called it “in my world”?

My album is called IN MY WORLD because I’m the kind of person who likes to let my life do the talking rather than go around annoying people, preaching in their faces. I’m not the preachy type, that’s not me; God didn’t make me that way. I like to live by example, and be of help wherever and whenever I can. This album is for those that aren’t Christians mainly, so that they can understand that we too also struggle in life and go through pain and hurt but it s all worth it because we have Jesus.

Do you have any favourite young artist at the moment?

Look out for Franklyn! He features on my album and he’s only 15! Amazing lyricist!! Also look out for Presha J a hot MC and an amazing singer called Lola Godheld!

What are your songs about?

Do you write your own songs?

Yeah I write my own songs, but i also let other people write some stuff for me as well. It’s fun and we work together in unity. There are always people out there that are better than you at what you do. Some times it’s good to ask for help.

Who are your musical influences?

Too many to name. One producer I love for his creativity is Timberland,. That guy is a creative genius; he inspires me to have no limits in what you do!

What are your immediate music career goals? (Next 1 to 3 years.)

To build on my joint Company with my music partner TUNDAY. The company is called WRITE WAY MUSIC LTD. I aim to create a big music studio as well, but there are so many things I aim to accomplish but I’d rather keep it on the low until it happens.

Thanks for your time.
