[00:01:24] All righty, let’s get started. I am excited to introduce my guest today. Rebecca Decata also known as Becks. Are you ready for this 

[00:01:36] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:01:36] show? At date 

[00:01:39] Dane Reis: [00:01:39] hailing Gloucestershire, England Becks was always attracted to the bright lights of the big cities. At the age of 18. She moved to London to train at the prestigious London studio center, where she gained a BA in theater dance.

[00:01:55] Upon completion of her degree, she went on to work with the likes of Rihanna and British pop group. M people she performed at the Royal Albert Hall or multiple seasons of the classical spectacular, and also became the feature dancer on a 10 part season called Justin Lee Collins. Good times. I also did a few contracts with Norwegian cruise lines where she met her husband, Sean and ex clown with Ringling brothers and Barnum and Bailey circus.

[00:02:26] After saying I do the pair moved to Las Vegas, yes. To further their careers back soon gained a spot in the infallible Jubilee, where she became a featured dancer under the direction of Frank Gatson jr. She performed there for two years before joining the cast of Vegas, the show where she became the lead dancer as lady luck, Becks also worked at marquee nightclub for five years as dance captain and choreographer.

[00:02:54] And her work is still being performed there today. In 2018, Beck’s fell pregnant with their daughter. Aira Bella. Her daughter was the catalyst for her to start her own company called city cats, a production company and multifaceted girl group. In addition to producing her own show in corporate events, X also works as a freelancer in town.

[00:03:15] Most recently, performing at fashion show mall for entertainment plus productions. That is a quick intro of who you are and what you’ve done, but why don’t you tell us a little bit more about yourself? Fill in the gaps, who you are, are where you’re calling home and a little bit more, what you do as a professional in the entertainment industry.

[00:03:37] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:03:37] Okay, well, so yeah, I guess I could start with my name as we had just been talking about that. So, professionally I do go by the name of . but. everybody does know respects. and I go by that because it’s nice and simple. I definitely think as well, us Brits like to shorten our names, we always into nicknames.

[00:03:59] I’ve always been known as back. Obviously I started in ballet and tap and jazz at three. And actually in fact, I started with gymnastics at two years old. Not that pretty sure we, Didn’t do that much at two, but that’s when my mum decided she needed to put me in some sort of classes to try and tame some of the energy that I had.

[00:04:26]so yeah. So then, Doing all the dance classes. I later on started, with acting classes as well. And, took a lot of the acting certificates under Lambda, which is, a certification that we have in, in the UK. And it’s also an acting school too. so I did do a lot of the. Speech and drama festivals.

[00:04:48] We call them festivals in the U S they call them, competitions, as well as dance. And then obviously moving on, to college when I was 18. And then, I mean, yes, really the rest is history. I had a, a pretty successful career in the UK, and then meeting my husband on cruise ships. We decided the best place for us all to go would be Las Vegas.

[00:05:13] Dane Reis: [00:05:13] Perfect. Well, let’s move on to this next section and. Look, I am a sucker for a good quote. What’s your favorite quote? You’d like to share with everyone. 

[00:05:25] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:05:25] So I’m, as you’ve seen my resume. So actually on my resume, I have a quote which is dancing with your feet is one thing, but dancing with your heart is another.

[00:05:35] And I have that on my resume because. I always, in my opinion, bring my hops to every, every movement, every step, every nuance that the music tells me. So that’s definitely something that I, that I live by and moved by and dance by. And that’s Stephanie a quote that I live by. but another court that I do also live by is treat others how you’d like to be treated yourself.

[00:06:04] So, I was. Hope and strive to, to bring that into reality, especially with my company, city cats, and I try and be fat and just never do anything that I wouldn’t want to be done to myself. For sure. 

[00:06:23] Dane Reis: [00:06:23] And I think there’s a lot to be said when you said moving and doing the moves with your heart versus just doing them because it’s one of those things that’s kind of difficult to explain, but you know, it, when you see it, don’t you and.

[00:06:37] I think Jubilee and also the role of lady luck in Vegas. The show that you’ve played are quintessential roles that really emphasize that, especially Jubilee, because if you are your traditional show girl, and you’re walking across the stage, For someone just looking at it. It doesn’t really seem like all that much, but it’s all of that feeling all of the heart that makes all the difference.

[00:07:01] It’s all those subtleties and moving beyond your body as well. That really makes sense. 

[00:07:08] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:07:08] Yeah, absolutely. You know, that’s exactly what performance is. A lot of the people, I mean, there’s another quote that I actually don’t agree with, which is dance. Like no one’s watching, And the reason why I don’t agree with that necessarily is because if you don’t sing, like no one’s watching, then what is, what is the point you are there to, to give your art to the audience, you’re there to give your art to somebody else.

[00:07:35] So I understand it obviously really means to dance with abandonment. And to forget yourself and live in the moment. I understand, obviously that’s what it really means, but you also have to dance like somebody is watching because you are dancing for them. You’re giving your art to, to the audience. And so, it has to, you ha like, it just feels so good to be able to share something with somebody else.

[00:08:02] It’s so easy for a recording artist or. Oh, you know, a painter or sculpture to share that, but as a formal on, on stage to actually give something to, to the audience is something else it’s then being able to leave that. With a part of you, and that’s the memory of what you view on, on stage. And one thing is to make sure they don’t forget to forget you or to forget that part.

[00:08:32] So I definitely feel very, proud and people strangers even come up to me like in Vegas, seriously, this, this has happened a few times and they’ve recognized me from my role as lady luck and they come up and they’re like, Oh, Wait on you. When you in that show, the believe will comes down to, I never stepped on the stage without giving it my, my, my old, even if I’m exhausted.

[00:09:02] Dane Reis: [00:09:02] Absolutely. I love your take on that quote. Well, let’s move to the next section now. And of course you are an entertainer. I am an entertainer, and I think you’d agree that the entertainment industry is one of the most subjective, brutally, honest and personally emotional industries. In existence and you know, as well as I, that in order to create and to have a successful career in this industry, like you’re having now, it takes a lot of dedication and hard work.

[00:09:36] And while there is radius amount of fun and excitement being an entertainer on stage sharing our art. There are also our fair share of obstacles and challenges and failures. We are going to experience and we’re going to have to learn how to move forward through. So tell us what is. One key challenge, obstacle or failure you’ve experienced in your career.

[00:10:01] And how did you come out the other side better because of it. 

[00:10:05] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:10:05] Okay. so I actually have, I kind of have something for failure challenge and an obstacle. Sorry. So, okay. So failure where I feel like I failed, which is. Such a terrible thing to say, but my failure would be that I never, she made it onto the West end stage.

[00:10:27]you know, I trained not only in dance, but singing and acting, you know, it was a full, rounded, triple threat kind of training. The end goal for a lot of asset college was the West end. And so that is something that I, I would say that I failed. I never, I never got that role. I was sure I was born to play.

[00:10:48] A pot in Chicago, Chicago, when I was sure I was born to be in cabaret and all these other amazing shows. And unfortunately I just was never chosen, no matter how hard I tried and I never actually made it onto the stage. Obstacle or challenge that I was, but I had also was, it was like into the U S you know, we, or at least moving to the Vegas, you know, I literally moved from the UK.

[00:11:18] Straight to Vegas. obviously with my husband in tow, but you, we took a risk and it was, we didn’t know what we were going to expect. We didn’t have any work lined up at school. I had a handful of agencies that my American friends had given me. And I’d reached out to them prior to our moving to Las Vegas.

[00:11:37] It was just like, hi I’m and I’m going to be living in Vegas. You know, I’d love to meet with you. I’d love to work for you. And that was, that should be met with a lot of dead ends, because I think that people were like, well, you know, we’ll call us when you get here. It wasn’t there. Wasn’t a lot of interest in just this.

[00:11:59] English girl moving to the, to, to Vegas, you know? And then, another challenge that I have had, which I, I know that you probably would, would agree is full. So having my DALSA Arabella, unfortunately in this industry, when you decide to become a mother, it can be frowned upon, I think that not necessarily frowned upon, but that definitely becomes this sort of.

[00:12:26] This image of a mother who, who is still a performer or a dancer. And, it’s hard to, to, to, to meet those challenges and to make sure that people know that you’re still able and willing to, to work. and I think that, I know that I actually met her a lot of challenges. Once I had our rebel, he was let go from, two of my.

[00:12:53] Jobs that I had long standing in the city. And of course, whether or not they met that, it was because, but I think that. Yeah. That’s really, when it, when it comes down to, it was really, that’s what it was. It was having a child and people not being sure whether I’d be able to give my all to the job anymore or people not sure whether my body would bounce back to, you know, fighting shape or anything like that.

[00:13:24] Anyway, as you, as you know, I’ve, I’ve, I have bounced back. So, so yeah, those are definitely some of my failures, obstacles and challenges I have met and punched in the face. 

[00:13:39] Dane Reis: [00:13:39] Yeah, I can absolutely agree with having children. Obviously I am not a woman, but my wife is, and she is. An entertainer, of course, as well.

[00:13:47] And it definitely presents its own unique set of challenges having children, but it is not in any way, a reason to have children, if that’s something that you want to do because you really can do it all, you just have to yeah. To kind of realign a few priorities and. Get really good at managing your time.

[00:14:05] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:14:05] Oh yes. Oh yes. And it’s true. It takes a village. My Lord, that, that is one true court right there. It takes a village to raise a child. 

[00:14:14] Dane Reis: [00:14:14] Absolutely. Well, let’s move to the next section now to a time that I like to call your spotlight moment. That one moment in time you realized, yes, I am going to be an entertainer for a living or maybe it was.

[00:14:30] Yes, this is what I need to be doing as an entertainer. Tell us about that. 

[00:14:35] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:14:35] So growing up in Gusto, I actually, I, I, I attended two different dance schools in my time. I was really a favorite basically. And, and I think that came down to the fact that I didn’t do a lot of dance festivals or competitions.

[00:14:53] I did do some, but I wasn’t one of those, you know, competition kids, as you would say, in the U S. And not that that’s what it was always about, but I do, you know, I wasn’t really a favorite because I wasn’t ever. In that idle the time, I guess. So I didn’t honestly appreciate that I had any, I just, you know, I loved dancing.

[00:15:17] I loved my parents were happy to pay for my dance classes and all the ballet shoes that I was going through a very rapid rate because my feet grew so fast.

[00:15:32] I, I was never in the, and especially as a, as a tool. Kids as well. You’ll always put in the back and back of the stage. And also a lot of the times I had to play the boy part because I was like tooling, gangly. And there was that many, like male dance is in my, in my dance school at the time. So. You know, I didn’t ever really, I think that I had some talent in the UK.

[00:15:59] You can actually leave school at 16 or you could then go on to what we call six form, two and then leave school 18. But. That’s the backstory. So when I was 16, I kind of was like, well, what am I going to do? What, you know, what do I want to do with my life? I wanted to ask if I don’t think I’m good enough.

[00:16:18] And I remember having this conversation with my dance teacher and she thought I was absolutely insane that I didn’t think I was good enough and that I absolutely could. And should. Try out as you know, and try and get into it, adults college and try to become sessional. So I, you know, I, that, that conversation and I still remember it to the day the teacher was called Sadie.

[00:16:44] No member talked to my parents about it and being like, you know, the state, he thinks that I could be a dancer and a mum and dad at the time were adamant that I should get a degree. So they. Persuaded me to stay on at school for another two years to get my a levels. if your Harry Potter fans is basically like the news and the hours.

[00:17:04]so I, I stayed on, go my a levels, which then means you can then go on to higher education and to get a degree. And then, so when I was 17, so that’s, additioning further for the dance college and, and go in. And not only that, I won multiple scholarships too, which was another sort of like aha moment of mine.

[00:17:27] Someone thinking that I honestly didn’t really have much talent. I would never. Even get into a dance school, but was, was, awarded they’re called dance and drama warts out. There’s only 600 Dotson drama awards given out every year throughout the whole of the UK. And I was offered to as well as the multiple yeah.

[00:17:50] Multiple, style scholarships for other colleges. That was definitely my sort of Oh, Wow. Maybe I can’t do this. 

[00:18:00] Dane Reis: [00:18:00] Yeah, absolutely. There’s validation after all the training. I love that. Well, let’s piggyback on that question to your number one book moment. Walk us through that day, the audition and callbacks.

[00:18:15] If those were part of it, what was going on in your life? And what about that? Makes it your favorite book? 

[00:18:24] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:18:24] So, of course you absolutely. Right. The, that was definitely a book at moment. We’re getting those letters in the, in the post and opening the door and realizing that not only was I offered multiple colleges, but I was also offered my, my first choice, which was London studio center.

[00:18:42] But I’m honestly go, I’ll skip forward a few years. And talk about actually my moment for the show. so obviously now I’m living in the, in Vegas and I’m a member of Jubilee. Yeah. I went to the Vegas show edition because Tripoli at the time through this whole revamp and, you know, reopened show, I guess I should say.

[00:19:10] And, I was just getting a little stale in the new, the new revamped version of the show and. Take us to shows auditioning. I’d known, take it Martina the choreographer. So I had worked with him on Christmas before, and I was like, you know, let’s, let’s just give it a go thing about biggest. The show was that I was a giant in comparison to anybody in that car at the time, they had never hired anybody’s tool as I am I’m for those who don’t know, I’m like, Five 10 and a half.

[00:19:42]anyway, I, I went to the audition and, Got away through a sequel callback, which was exciting, but I still didn’t really have any idea whether they retired me or not just purely because of my size or my height, I should say. Anyway, I was at a friend’s house. DIA de web’s house. I think it was her birthday, or it could have just been a random pool party anyway, that had a few glasses of wine and like in a call from the company manager, Shannon.

[00:20:14] And he tells me, we’d like to offer you a position in Vegas, the show and my jaw dropped to the ground. I honestly couldn’t believe it. You know, I put the phone down. I was actually very secretive about it because what actually was happening was that I was still in Jubilee and still under contract,

[00:20:37] I would say. So, Of course I have to, I, you know, I was having this, I love my GP costs. We had such a great time. It really wasn’t a sisterhood, a family, even though the cost was the size of 85 people. It was such a huge cost, but we all were family. I absolutely had the best time, best two years of my life in that show.

[00:21:00] And so I, then a Tim one, what am I going to do? I really want to be in Vegas, the show it’s, you know, you get two days off a week as opposed to just one. The money was better. The show is such a great show. The choreography is fantastic. You know, take a Martina is. I like him, him to the boastful CFR age that his, his cardiography, his style is just so fantastic.

[00:21:25] Yeah. I wish him to carry on and go even further in his career because he really is somebody to Myra and aspire spicy. He is, you know, just an incredible genius. so I desperately wanted to do his cardiography again. so basically I had to, I had to break my contract with Tubidy. So I, I kept it very quiet.

[00:21:46] I didn’t let anybody know apart from those closest to me that I had been offered a position. But anyway, I guess, long story short, it was, it was quite, an awesome moment me, because I felt like I was paving the way for. Two dancers to be in that show. And I did like now, since, since I joined that, that show, the cost got much tooler even now that the cost is much cooler than it was before I joined, we had, male dancers in net that would, I think Dana back at six foot five.

[00:22:19] So yeah, I guess I definitely feel like my, my presence in that show opened up for a much cooler hotline. 

[00:22:29] Dane Reis: [00:22:29] Well, let’s talk about the present. What projects are you working on now? What are you looking forward to? And of course we are amidst this global pandemic. How do you see the entertainment industry moving forward in the next couple of years?

[00:22:47] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:22:47] So, projects I’m working on now is my, is my goal group and production company, city cats. I’m I’m, you know, plugging way. It’s kind of been difficult. I had, A big, cool event on February 2nd. It was, and I was really hoping that that gig was going to be the, like a catalyst. And it was just going to be bang, bang, bang, bang.

[00:23:12] We were going to get all the bookings rolling in and you know, this year was going to be my year where I was offering, you know, so many girls in town, opportunities to be a part of the girl group. Obviously that didn’t happen. I’m still working very much on that, working on my social media for it, working on choreography, you know, just all of the, all the behind the scenes, things that happen that have to happen that go into, into performances.

[00:23:46] You know, a lot of people don’t think about. So I know that we have taken a huge hit because of COVID-19. And, this, this town, I mean, it’s an entertainment city. So the city has also taken a huge hit. Unfortunately, you know, our economy is down and, and that’s, what’s hard, but obviously something that with the, with the crash of 2008 is the only way to build the economy is to spend money.

[00:24:16] And which is obviously something that you don’t want to do because you don’t have the money to spend, but it’s so important. To spend money at this time, we need to be putting money back into our economy. Is this the only way to dig ourselves back out of this? So I’m pushing forward. I’m hoping that we start getting bookings come in for those that are interested in having entertainment and know, I think that Vegas was.

[00:24:48] On this flip off sort of changing. Anyway, they say these a Las Vegas native say that the city sort of reinvent itself every sort of 10 years. And, I definitely felt this sort of resurgence of a new kind of Las Vegas with the opening of the Raiders and the golden Knights and all the sports teams that we are that we are having.

[00:25:14] But we now have, I should say so, I think that we will always have entertainment, I think is going to be a little different. I, I do worry that sick is going to make the comeback after this pandemic that it, you know, it was before. I don’t think it’s going to have six shows on the strip anymore. I mean, maybe I’m talking, I don’t mean to be negative.

[00:25:36] I’m just, these are just my sort of, I think. It could be possible that maybe the production show is gonna come back. you know, and I think hopefully the casinos will start putting money back into the entertainment. yeah, that’s what I hope for. I hope for the production shows to come back. 

[00:26:00] Dane Reis: [00:26:00] Absolutely.

[00:26:01] I’m hoping so as well. And I think that there probably will be, cause people want to be entertained. 

[00:26:06] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:26:06] I mean, I agree. I mean, I agree, right? Like it’s, it’s, it’s so true, but you’re right. People do need to be entertained and Vegas is that city that people come to because they need to live, live a life hasn’t vacation for a few days and just be entertained.

[00:26:25] Literally. Just those words say all. 

[00:26:27] Dane Reis: [00:26:27] Absolutely. Very cool. Well, it is time to move on to one of my favorite sections in the interview. I call it the grease lightning round. I am linked to ask you a handful of questions. I want you to answer them as quickly and concisely as possible one after another. Are you ready?

[00:26:49] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:26:49] Great. 

[00:26:50] Dane Reis: [00:26:50] First question. What was the one thing holding you back from committing to a career as an entertainer? 

[00:26:56] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:26:56] Nothing when I commit to something I commit full force. 

[00:27:01] Dane Reis: [00:27:01] Perfect. Second question. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? 

[00:27:07]Rebecca De Carteret: [00:27:07] it has to be a piece of advice from Taika Martina, and it was, even if you’re facing the back and you’re not facing the audience, never stop performing because you need to give them something to watch, even if they are just watching your back.

[00:27:21] Dane Reis: [00:27:21] Love that in. So, so true. 

[00:27:25] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:27:25] Third 

[00:27:25] Dane Reis: [00:27:25] question. What is something that is working for you right now? Or if you’d like to go pre COVID, what was working for you before our industry went on? 

[00:27:34] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:27:34] Pause. so I am a list maker. I have always been a list maker or, you know, I always have my to do list every day and I studied pre COVID and I am doing it during the carpet and I will do it posts, but that helps me.

[00:27:52] Figure out what I need to get done in the day I need helps me prioritize things. And it helps me take things off the list and breath and reach my goals basically. So, you know, even doing the city cats, social media stuff, it’s, it helps me to, to just get everything done and prioritize my 

[00:28:14] Dane Reis: [00:28:14] time. Absolutely.

[00:28:16] And I think it’s always, it’s always those little things that compound over time that really make the difference. But they’re also the little things that are easy to just go from them maybe tomorrow. 

[00:28:25] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:28:25] Yeah. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. 

[00:28:28] Dane Reis: [00:28:28] So fourth question. What is the best resource, whether that is a book, a movie, a YouTube video, a podcast, maybe a piece of technology that you found is helping your career right now.

[00:28:41]Rebecca De Carteret: [00:28:41] definitely YouTube and, Instagram. I find, I gain a lot of my inspiration from YouTube videos and from Instagram. 

[00:28:50] Dane Reis: [00:28:50] Absolutely. And fifth question. If you had to start your career from scratch, but still had all the knowledge and experience you’ve collected from your career in this industry, what would you do or not do.

[00:29:06] Would you do anything differently or keep 

[00:29:08] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:29:08] it the same? so my hot says I would do absolutely nothing differently. and that is because everything that I have done, every choice I’ve made, every path I’ve taken every day that I’ve gone like hungry because I was, you know, a pool starving artist living in London and, you know, had my electricity and gas shuts off.

[00:29:27] Cause I couldn’t pay the bills, even though I have had some very. Pull moments in my life, very dire moments in my life. I’d have to say I wouldn’t change a thing because everything has maybe the post I am today and everything led me to my husband and now seeing my daughter. So, I would like to say I would change nothing because obviously I think one likes to put a fit.

[00:29:53] How is, I guess, Maybe if I was to say anything, maybe stop trying so hard to get into the West end. Cause obviously that came out fast and not, not happening anyway. And I would have left her at least done one of the shows in Paris, whether it was the Muslim ritual leader. And I would have loved to have done a contract in Germany as well.

[00:30:13] So when he regrets that I have, however, I, you know, hashtag regress. 

[00:30:21] Dane Reis: [00:30:21] Yeah. It’s hard to, it’s hard to regret your life that you love so much, you know, any part of it. and that’s why I liked that question as well, because it is the conundrum of, well, all of my, all of my decisions of the good ones and the bad ones got me to this great place that I’m in right now.

[00:30:38] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:30:38] But. 

[00:30:39] Dane Reis: [00:30:39] It’s always fun to go down that rabbit hole and Hmm, what would I do? Yeah, the last question. What is the golden nugget knowledge drop you have learned from your successful career in this industry that you would like to leave with our listeners? 

[00:30:57] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:30:57] The truth is. Just be kind, you know, don’t be diva everybody.

[00:31:05] Everybody’s the same world as squirrel trying to catch and nuts and you know, and where we’re all in this together. So just be kind and yes, it’s a very competitive industry. B can’t ever let your competitive size get the best review because you know, you never know when. When you, you will work with people again, or you never know when you’ll see that casting director again or anything like that.

[00:31:35] So, 

[00:31:37] Dane Reis: [00:31:37] absolutely. Absolutely. And to wrap up this interview, it is time to give yourself a plug. Where can we find you? How do our listeners connect with you? Is there anything you want to promote?

[00:31:53]Rebecca De Carteret: [00:31:53] so yes, just my, my Gil group production company, city cats, you can find me on Instagram to see underscore cats. Cats are spelled K a T Z. And, also saying on Facebook and talk, not that I’m that big on tech talk, so you don’t have to follow them. Tick tock. Yeah. So you can’t. So if you were in looking at, he can’t say 60 to go group, I should say is multifaceted.

[00:32:23] So it’s six female dancers, one female singer, and one female musician, which is generally a trombone player. and we have four. Stock shows, which are show girl jazz. Disco cause everybody needs a little seventies unleashed shows that it’s always the same, the same shows, and you can either have three, six or 12 minutes of them.

[00:32:52] So if you’re basically the idea is that it’s a plug in place. If you have a last minute corporate booking or you just decide, you want to have some entertainment, then 50 cats is the way to go because. But what would you rehearse the costumes already there, but just to go group ready to go. And it’s, you know, life, life music, like singing, obviously like dancing and where we’re right there.

[00:33:16] So, that’s my girl groups. and then of course we do bespoke events too. So if you ever need anything different than I can also produce that for you. I could, I could do anything and I have my bank for that. So she was definitely the catalyst of me wanting to, to start things myself and do things myself.

[00:33:39] Dane Reis: [00:33:39] And I love that you have preset shows as well, as well as the bespoke side of things. Cause I think a lot of companies, they do the bespoke thing, for sure. That’s very popular, but there is a lot to be said. About the last minute gigs. They real, I mean, I’ve been on so many corporate events and been working as a producer on corporate events where they’re like, right, we’ve got an extra X amount of dollars that we need to spend in our budget, you know?

[00:34:06] And it takes time to put together a show usually. But if you can just call you up and. You’re ready to go the next day. I mean, that’s huge. 

[00:34:13] Rebecca De Carteret: [00:34:13] Yeah. Yeah, exactly. That was, I mean, that was the whole idea. I was just like, why it’s funny. Cause there wasn’t, there wasn’t anything like that in, in, in Vegas anyway.

[00:34:23] And yeah, our, we felt like that was, the cold in the, in the industry for something like this. And and I wanted to, I wanted to make it a deal group to just because, The reason, I mean, this is going into sort of more dramatical things, but, the, obviously the reason behind it was having my daughter and finding that doors had been closed on my, on my face after working for people for so long.

[00:34:49] And I just wanted to prove to the world that, you know, you can be a mother and you can still. Do a lot of things. And so I, I wanted to make sure that I incorporated everybody, every, every woman. So actually in my group, four of us and mothers and we’re killing it. So that was the, that was the whole gold, just to put out there a platform for women to feel comfortable and to feel empowered.

[00:35:18] And, and I hope that all of my girls feel.
