Open Dialogue With Sophie Bakalar, the Co-Founder of Fable

Sophie Bakalar, the Co-Founder of Fable, and her brother Jeremy Canade are rising entrepreneurs in the pet goods industry. Bakalar recently sat down with ONE37pm’s Phil Toronto on the latest Open Dialogue episode to discuss the Fable brand, why she decided to start the company, and what she was doing before creating her business.

So, what exactly is Fable?

“Fable is a highly innovative direct to consumer brand, and we make pet gear. So, all sorts of products to solve problems for you and your pets.  The idea is that we don’t just want to make stuff. We want to make stuff that solves problems, and that is the angle that comes with all of our products and design process,” said Bakalar.

“As much as we love and adore our pets, they do come with a lot of pain points and a lot of problems around cleanliness, convenience, anxiety, boredom, and time. There is just a huge range of issues with humans in the pet space. Usually, in urban areas, those are the problems that we want to solve.”

She continued: “So, we make all types of products for pets such as beds, leash, bowls, and toys. Everything that you would need for a pet, but we try to be thoughtful during the design process, trying to solve problems.”

Bakalar has always been a huge pet lover, which ultimately led her to start Fable with her Canade. 

“So, I have always wanted to do something in the pet space but never really thought about it from this perspective. However, at Collaborative Fund, as I was investing in consumer goods, I saw a lot of opportunities in the pet space. As things were changing from a consumer standpoint and a marketing perspective in terms of people getting married later, having kids later, and getting pets earlier,” shared Bakalar.

“This is all pre-COVID, which has changed all of that has accelerated a lot of these trends. But, even beforehand, there were so many different dynamics of how we live our lives have shifted—making it easier to care for pets.

So, I was looking for the pet space from an investment perspective and was surprised to see a lot of interesting opportunities in pet foods, Insurance, and other different categories.”

Bakalar went on to say that she did not see many products that sparked her interest in the product space, and there hadn’t been anything introduced in some time. She took it as an opportunity to build a brand in the pet space. 

She also shared that she worked operations before getting into investing and was interested in getting back into the field. Meanwhile, Jeremy was in business development and strategies at Jet.com and had the itch to get back into operations as well. 

The first products that both Jeremy and Sophie collaborated on were a leash and collar.

“The first one that we did was a leash and collar set. In the beginning, some of the design’s thought processes were that we want to put ourselves out there and see what consumers want. See what consumers think, make sure that there is space in the market, and test our thesis to see if people want it in the market. So, start small, and those products are not even the main focuses anymore. We have introduced a slew of products, which focus more on our focus,” Bakalar said.

In a year where many businesses are suffering, how has the pandemic affected Fable?

“All of our expectations for this year have been turned upside down. Every month, mainly when COVID started, it completely shifted our expectations of how this business would go. We launched around January; we did a little testing last year but launched in January of this year.

Then we launched “The Crate,” and that did great. Then we had our second launch, “The Magic Link,” which is a walking system, and we were supposed to launch that in March. Then COVID hit, and then we had the discussion and came to the conclusion that it was the right time to launch a product,” said Bakalar.

Open Dialogue With Sunday’s CEO and Founder, Coulter Lewis

Coulter Lewis, the CEO and Founder of Sunday, is a rising entrepreneur in the lawn care industry. Lewis recently sat down with ONE37pm’s Phil Toronto on the latest episode of Open Dialogue to discuss Sunday, where he came from, and what he’s working on in the future. 

So, what exactly is Sunday?

“Sunday is a data-driven ad tech for your backyard. Where we plan a ton of information on your property to help you prepare your land, which is more responsible and safe for your kids and pets,” said Lewis. “It is really easy, it is focused on lawn care, and specifically having a great looking lawn without the toxic chemicals.”

Lewis was not always involved in the lawn industry. In fact, he has been involved with several different business sectors.

“I did a lot of different things, I actually started in the high performance automotive industry making really silly cars faster. I designed low production parts for Porsche cars and Mercedes cars. That first out of school job and something I wanted to do. I loved cars and still do. I wanted to do that, and chemical engineering,” said Lewis.

“So, I got to do some really fast and loose engineering, and while I was there, I realized that I was more interested in designing more broadly than just cars. I went to a place called IDO, which is a design agency, and I worked there in a more project capacity. Helping large companies innovate in services, experience, sometimes products, intangible things. It was an amazing experience for me to be surrounded by incredible people, but I ended up leaving there and starting a brand with my wife called Quinn’s Foods. So, Quinn is a CPG snack brand that is in just about every grocery store at this point. We have been building that company for ten years and named it after our first son Quinn.”

He continued: “When I started looking at lawn care, I realized that it is our third largest crop. By land area, it is tied with wheat at 40 million acres, and it is ten times more land than all the organic farms combined. So, if you half care about all the environmental and human health implications, well, this is a huge piece of it. Not only is it a huge piece of it, but it is also in your backyard,” Lewis said.

“The reality of it is that nothing has moved forward since the 1950s, but we put five-times more pesticides in our backyards than we do with industrial farms. It is some of the most polluted lands in the US in your backyard literally.  There was a huge opportunity to fix that chasm, and at that moment, it was full speed ahead.”

Of course, there was nothing like that on the market at the time, and it would have to be created. It would take a certain amount of time to test different products until they found the perfect one, and they most certainly did.

“We did a full year of testing different products across the US, and what we learned is the thing that we really need to deliver was about the cool new branding and better ingredients…People really do not know about lawn care, and they should because it is agriculture; It is complicated. It is turf science. We have a Turf Ph.D. as our Chief Science Officer,” shared Lewis.

They are looking to get deeper into the lawns specifically and help their customers continue to learn more about this space. To help their neighbors become customers, they are also developing more products to control weeds and other things in the yard.

5 Pro Tips to Achieve Your Fitness Goals with a Hectic Schedule

Getting to the gym is hard enough with a fixed schedule, but trying to go when you have no standard day-to-day? It can feel impossible, as many people who work for themselves are all too aware. However, just because it feels impossible doesn’t mean it is. Here are a few pro tips on how to make yourself get to the gym, even when you’d rather do anything but that.

Build It into Your Schedule

It’s 2019, and everyone is busy. You’re busy, I’m busy, my astrologist is busy. But that doesn’t cut it as an excuse to skip the gym, and the best way to build in the time is to actually schedule it in your calendar, so it’s not as easy to put off. In addition to giving it credibility as time reserved in your day, it also forces you to think realistically about the logistics of getting there, showering after and everything else around exercising. All of this in tandem can help reduce gym anxiety. Working for yourself allows flexibility of schedule, so use it to your advantage. And if you’re tempted to move it or not go at all, it’s more difficult psychologically to delete or move a scheduled event than to adjust something that was never really planned.

Prep as Much as Possible

It’s much easier to make it to the gym if you streamline it to be as easy as possible ahead of time. (This is especially true if you plan to go in the morning.) For example, lay out your gym clothes to put on or, if you’re going later in the day, pack them away in your gym bag with everything else you’d need. If you’re taking pre-workout or supplements, have those ready to go minus the water. Many fitness pros even recommend sleeping in your gym clothes (for morning-goers) if you really want to commit. Whatever your routine will require, making it easier for yourself ahead of time sets you up for success.

Know What You’re Doing Going In

Instead of trying to wing it once there, have a workout plan in mind. This will require some prior research, but it will help exponentially in going if you have the intention of what you’re planning to do. Include details like if it’s cardio or weights, which exercises or machines, number of sets and reps, etc. And if you have no idea where to start, there are online resources like r/Fitness and apps like Kineticoach that can help jumpstart that journey. (Also don’t forget to ask your gym if they offer and complimentary trainer sessions!)

Hold Yourself Accountable

This is especially important if you’re struggling to consistently hit the gym. Some form of keeping yourself accountable is essential to build the habits you want. Self-tracking in a journal can work, but sometimes it’s a bit too easy to let ourselves off the hook. It’s best to meet a gym buddy like a real appointment, but if that’s not feasible, then even a tracking buddy with whom you can exchange progress can work wonders. If nothing else, there are apps and sites like stickK that help with self-accountability.

Learn from Your Patterns

If any point should be emphasized the most, it’s this: Learn from your patterns of wins and losses and adjust accordingly. If hitting the gym in the morning proves impossible, then adjust your schedule to accommodate lunch or evenings. If you find yourself skipping that one exercise because you hate doing it, then find a similar substitute that you like better. Overall, achieving your fitness goals can be quite similar to the flow of working for yourself: looking at what needs to be done, structuring it out and knocking out those items one by one.

7 Companies That Took Something Old and Made It New Again

Take a scroll through Amazon (or, if you’re feeling adventurous, Wish), and you’ll find plenty of products on the market that didn’t exist 10 or even five years ago. Creating something new is easy. But reinventing the wheel? That takes skill. Whether they’ve applied new technology or utilized millennial marketing, these companies took things we’ve used forever and turned them into trendy “new” must-haves.

Quip
Quip

The first bristle toothbrushes were used in China as early as 619 A.D. The first electric toothbrush was created in 1927. Clearly it is not some new-fangled invention. But somehow Quip, a company founded in 2014, has made us feel like they are. They’ve given the bulky electric toothbrush a sleek and convenient makeover and incorporated a subscription service that delivers new brush heads and toothpaste every three months, making it a must-have for a generation that would do anything to avoid walking into a store.

Dollar Shave Club
Dollar Shave Club

Dollar Shave Club, another company that has ingeniously applied the subscription model to a personal grooming mainstay, delivers quality, refillable razors at an affordable price. They acquired millions in their first few rounds of funding, and in 2016, sold to Unilever for $1 billion—in cash. But how’d they manage to make razors so buzzworthy? Thank the marketing team. In 2012 the company uploaded a YouTube video featuring CEO Michael Dubin that set a precedent for viral, internet advertising. The funny ad is less than two minutes but prompted 12,000 orders in the first two days after it was posted. As of now, the video has more than 26 million views.

Polaroid Originals
Polaroid

Polaroid, a company founded in 1937, is more popular than ever. Its secret? Capitalizing on nostalgia. The instant film cameras could be found in practically every household throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s but gradually gave way to innovations like the disposable and then digital camera. And we don’t need to tell you about iPhones. Back in 2008, the company announced it would be discontinuing production of its analog film products, but a Dutch photography company, made up of Florian Kaps, André Bosman and Marwan Saba, swooped in to revitalize the old-school favorite. They launched The Impossible Project to produce new Polaroid materials, bought the machinery from Polaroid for $3.1 million, and in 2017, acquired Polaroid’s brand and intellectual property, renaming itself Polaroid Originals. Nostalgia has prompted a move towards the kitschy, vintage aesthetic, and now people are Instagramming their Polaroid photos. Meta.

Slack
Slack

Who doesn’t remember typing “A/S/L” in chatrooms during the dawning of the internet? Our poor parents had no idea what we were up to. Well, these days they don’t have to worry, as just about every millennial is using a chatroom in a much more professional setting. You’d be hard-pressed to find an office not using Slack for team collaboration and communication. The cloud-based interface launched in 2013 and turned chatrooms into an essential among employees.

Nest
Nest

It was only a matter of time before smart technology applied to home gadgets we’ve always used but never thought twice about. Nest Labs, an umbrella company creating advanced home essentials, was cofounded by former Apple engineers Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers in 2010, launching with the Nest Learning Thermostat, a self-learning, WiFi-enabled way to control the temperature in your home. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors followed, along with home security cameras. In 2014, Google purchased Nest for $3.1 billion and now develops the upgraded home electronics under the name Google Nest. Seriously though, who would have thought we’d start geeking out over a thermostat? Have we finally become our dads?

Casper
Casper

A few years ago, the words “trendy” and “mattress” would have looked pretty silly together. But, thanks to Casper, trendy mattresses are most definitely a thing. The e-commerce company launched in April 2014, after raising $1.85 million in its first round of funding. Within the first 28 days, Casper sold $1 million worth of products. How? The company set out to disrupt the mattress industry by streamlining what is often a stressful process rife with too many options and salespeople who might as well be trying to sell you a used car. Their direct-to-consumer “bed in a box” concept keeps prices low, while their Silicon Valley approach uses tech to create the best product and customer experience. Now people want to brag about their mattress. “Oh, yeah. It’s a Casper.” And hey, the company’s fun subway ads don’t hurt either.

Netflix
Netflix

Where do we start? The streaming juggernaut can be credited with reinventing the television, film and video-rental industries in one fell swoop. Now a publicly traded company, Netflix launched in 1998 as the world’s first online DVD rental destination (remember when it was just a mail-order service? Wow, we’re old). Though we all know Netflix eventually put the nail in the coffin for Blockbuster, the company offered to sell itself to the video rental store for just $50 million back in 2000. Thankfully for all of us (except Blockbuster), they declined. In 2013, Netflix debuted its first original series, House of Cards, which changed the way we watch TV forever. For one, the entire season was launched all at once (ringing in the binge era), while commercials, the bane of everyone’s television-watching experience, were nowhere to be found. Today, Netflix originals have won Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globes. And while the presence of traditional televisions is declining among millennials, there isn’t a young person around who doesn’t have access to a Netflix account.

5 Tips and Tricks for Vintage Tee Shopping

The world of vintage clothing is exploding, and the resale market is undoubtedly on the rise. 

According to ThredUp’s 2019 Fashion Resale Report, the secondhand market will reach $51 billion in 2023 (up from last year’s $24 billion) with resale, thrift and donations driving growth. Capitalizing on the thrill of the hunt, sites like The Real Real, Poshmark, Depop and ThredUp are owning the online sector, and brick-and-mortar classics like Goodwill, Salvation Army and vintage boutiques are swiftly gaining clout.

ONE37pm is leaning into the trend. We followed an Indiana native as he visited every single Goodwill store in his state, asked Jordan Page of @veryadvanced to highlight ten vintage pieces that have stood the test of time and outlined the five places that aren’t garage sales for making a substantial profit on clothing. But with brands like Urban Outfitters and other mid-tier retailers printing ‘80s and ‘90s graphics on brand-new tees, it can be hard to tell what is authentic and what is a knock-off.

So, we tapped Thomas Huerta, a videographer at VaynerTalent with a penchant for vintage tees, to spill insider tips and tricks for identifying truly hidden gems worthy of a $40 price tag. “Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure,” he says casually in a ONE37pm conference room. Proceed confidently, armed with these six bits of advice to score killer vintage T-shirts.

The garment tag

If the shirt in question is authentic, the garment tag will look retro. Hanes tags, in particular, show their age if they’re from past decades. In the ‘80s and ‘90s, most companies derived their blanks—or the base fabric—from a few companies like Wild Oats, Giant by Tultex, Fruit of the Loom, old Harley Davidson blanks, Jockey and Screen Stars Best. If you’re lucky enough to find a shirt with one of these tags, snag it.

Blind seams on the neckline

The quickest way to wade through a rack of tees is to thumb through the necklines. Ignore the graphics on the front at first. Cheaper shirts constructed today have an exposed double stitch instead of a blind seam—one that disappears into the fabric and favored years ago. Mass-market retailers like Urban Outfitters will cut costs and use the less expensive double stitch, so if you spot one, steer clear.

Single stitching over double stitch hems

These slim-fitting shirts, made popular in the late ‘90s, have a narrow body and sleeve opening. Look for a single row of machine stitches along the bottom edge of the tee and the sleeve opening. But beware: Some contemporary brands are replicating this method to imitate the coveted vintage look, so consider all the other tips and tricks in this guide to determine the garment’s value. 

In 1995, there was a transition period where the arms were double stitched and the hem was doubled. There is a lot of discrepancy in construction over the years, so use your best judgment.

Tubular construction over side seams

While tubular construction—where the side seams on the garment are replaced by a fabric knit into a tube shape— offers higher quality, it is not an indication of vintage. While the fit will feel more fluid, which Huerta prefers, there are still industrial manufacturers replicating the pattern. It is a key indicator of quality when vintage shopping.

Key graphics

While graphics are innately a personal preference, certain categories of prints bring a higher value. Band or tour shirts capture ultimate nostalgia, rap tees are all the rage and any prints with wolves on them—like ONE37pm favorite Keiser Clark—seem to be trending. Vintage NASCAR, basketball or Harley Davidson prints dominate the sports sector. Culturally, cartoons like Looney Tunes and Disney characters are coveted.

5 Top Places to Find Clothes to Flip

Garage sales are seasonal in many regions. In the Northeast and mid-Atlantic states, they seem to thrive in the spring, become sporadically available during the summer and then finish strong in the fall. Not everyone has access to garage sales year-round, but they need the business opportunity to source inventory in any season. 

Keep your flip game alive all year by hitting up these locations. Are you a flipper who made a serious profit? Find us on Twitter at @137pm and tell us your story.

@lelia_milaya/Twenty20
https://www.twenty20.com/photos/12d9a103-3c44-4396-8165-f9a33a55d9d5/?utm_t20_channel=bl
1. Thrift Stores

Thrift stores are number one on this list for a reason. If you buy for eBay, thrift stores are the top places to look when garage sales are slim. The locations can be found by searching on Waze or Google Maps. In my case, I’ve hit up countless shops, including Goodwill, the Salvation Army and Savers. Start your search with these company names. As a rule, the inventory at these stores is usually heaviest in the spring and late fall for two main reasons: Households are often doing their spring-cleaning and purging, and people are looking for that quick tax write-off in anticipation of tax season. Thrift stores have a lighter inventory during the Christmas shopping season and at the beginning of the New Year when the average consumer is enjoying their holiday splendors.

2. Dollar Stores

Sometimes you don’t need a retailer to host a major sale, you just need buyers who can’t find what they are looking for. Dollar stores and regional retailers such as Walgreens have collectibles that many people want but don’t have the access to purchase. The brick-and-mortar locations will get high-demand exclusives from big brands such as Disney, Nickelodeon, Pepsi and many more. These places require frequent check-ins, but the rewards can be very high when you make the effort.

https://www.twenty20.com/photos/12d9a103-3c44-4396-8165-f9a33a55d9d5/?utm_t20_channel=bl
3. Retail Sales

This option is amazing for many small-scale resellers. 

Whenever a store has a sale, look at a list of their discounted items online. Sometimes you could stumble upon an item while walking through a grocery store or looking to buy yourself new jeans at a department store. Even when you’re out shopping casually, it’s crucial that you are always on the hunt for sales that you could take advantage of. Always turn on the eBay app to start scanning items you feel could sell for a higher price online. 

Post-Christmas sales are undoubtedly the best. Some pop-up shops in malls need to liquidate their year-end inventory. Find them. Other stores try to offload their seasonal items by discounting them heavily. Black Friday and other holiday sales bring discounted items to a price that is low enough for favorable margins. Check it all out.

4. Liquidation and Bulk Buys

Liquidation sales—when a store is going out of business or restructuring its inventory—can be a great place for acquiring diverse products. You can find websites selling returned items from major retailers such as Walmart, Amazon and Target. While the sellers don’t test each product and therefore cannot guarantee that the items work, the margins should be high enough to take the gamble as a flipper. Before you bid on these lots, keep in mind that there will be shipping costs. 

Bulk buys such as Alibaba are different. Committing to one item could be highly profitable, but it limits your listing availability and could fill your storage space quickly. So think hard about buying these, but reap the benefits when you get it right. When buying on Alibaba, you could commit to hundreds of the same type of item. This could mean you’ll need to keep these items for a while unless you are a master of the sales arbitrage. On a liquidation website, you are buying returned, salvaged or refurbished item lots. The item lots can have various types of items, in various conditions with different resale values. A lot can have several brands of items. For example, one lot purchase could contain five Under Armor polos, three Champion sweatshirts and 14 private-label shirts with a total value of $100. There are shipping costs, and sites like Liquidation can give you a quote with estimated tax as well.

5. eBay, Amazon and Craigslist

Interestingly enough, there are plenty of items that you can buy on one digital platform to resell on another, generating a solid margin. With Craigslist items, you almost always have to commit to picking up the purchase in person. You can ask the seller if they’ll ship, but you’ll need to work out the costs. Amazon and eBay sales are easier. You can sell on one platform and arrange to ship from the other. In this scenario, you won’t need to handle shipping at all, just inputting the buyer’s details.

6 CBD Products Men Should Try in 2019

In the wake of #LegalizeIt culture (and, finally, legislation), business is booming for the cannabis industry. Last year, the legal marijuana market in North America gained a whopping $10 billion in investments. By the end of 2019, that number is slated to reach higher than $16 billion. Needless to say, all that dough is being funneled into a new wave of innovative products those investors hope to get on our shelves.

Ironically enough, one of the fastest-growing branches of the market has technically been legal all along, CBD. We know you’ve been seeing it everywhere lately, and perhaps you’ve even tried a few drops under your tongue, but what exactly is CBD, and what business does it have popping up in everything from skin care products to lube? (Yes, lube.)

CBD, aka cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis plants. Unlike its fellow phytocannabinoid (that’s what these compounds are called), THC, it has no psychoactive properties, meaning it doesn’t get you high. Rather, it’s used as a veritable miracle ingredient that can aid in everything from anxiety, stress and pain reduction to soothing your skin. It’s also an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant. No wonder everyone’s so obsessed with it.

If you’re ready to incorporate CBD into all areas of your life, beyond the typical oil or tincture, check out the products below.
