Previous life was about microblogging and what people had for breakfast for it why do you think you can move money around?

You have never worked in finance or dull with credit cards.

Sellers are not the sexiest thing on the world.

This was their perception.

Aren't credit cards going away?

Isn't it all digital?

It was a battle given my background.

I love that because it makes you stronger and it makes you better and it really clarifies what you are trying to do in the world.

We just addressed it had on in our pitches to investors which a lot of them said no to.

I went through all of them.

The next list was 10 reasons why we will succeed.

You either trust us to do that or you don't. if you don't, don't invest.

We are not going to be sad about it.

You have a thing for 140 characters are in [laughter] thank you, jack.

Good luck with everything.
