    Alex 00:02:27

It was back in Paris and a prospect and very interesting because at the time there were no merch products and people didn't understand it as well. So it needs to be, you know, easy to understand for everyone. So I had to create the packages and everything. So I really started from scratch.

It was one of my first trips as a Shopify employee. Shopify was so small back then, I barely had a budget for a hotel. I remember staying in the Tenderloin and meeting up with you for lunch. You had a little office, and I think I want to call like the financial district. Was that what that area was called?

    Erik 02:15
    Yeah, we moved offices every year for a while and, we were probably on 2nd and Mission.

    I was trying to impress you, huh?

    Blair 02:39
    Yeah. Yeah, it was, man, it was a long time ago.

    Erik 02:43
    I do have to correct you because you said you were. It was early days as an employee, but technically, weren't you an intern?

    Blair 02:53
    By that point, I had graduated to full-time employment status. No. Yeah, I started. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, we can get into all that we can get into. Well, for sure.

    Erik 03:03
    It's funny. Like, I'm trying to remember back the earliest memory, and in talking about budgets, you know, Shopify. I didn't have the budget for a hotel for you. We've always just seen as always...
