It is not the last, but it is not quite the first. It is an idiom that describes a situation where two or more people aggressively try to make the same point to each other, but in different terms. All of a sudden you can realize yourself and say, « I think we are in that opinion. » It`s a game with the more literal idea of a violent dis chord (where people scream, come to blows or worse). Okay, thank you for being here. I would like to give them the opportunity to run. Of course. Uh, I`m Terrence Donnelly. And I`m CEO and co-founder of Teeps. And I`m Josh. And I`m the co-founder of Teeps. I deal with business and marketing. That`s impressive.
It`s great to have you here. All right, tell me about Teeps. Of course I do. We are a mobile application development agency. Companies are setting us up to transform their mobile business. To, for example, companies like Orlando Health, for, companies like The Orlando Magic, they need an innovation team to build a mobile application for them and create a mobile experience, um, but they have too much in-house to do it. Then they`ll hire us to be this team. It`s great. I love the way you said it. « Because your first response was that you were transforming the business through mobile devices.
Is that what you said? I love it. It`s in our work with Fervr. Oh, that`s cool. Mr. Fervr. Understand, you know how to communicate, which we do a little better. Yes, yes. Oh, wow. Well done. Because I – yes, it`s really fascinating, and listeners may remember that we had Fervr`s Shayo on a previous episode, so awesome. They all worked together.
TERRENCE: Yup. Okay, and so, just give me a little history on Teeps. When did you open the doors? Joshua: It started in 2012, but the story kind of starts before. I would say 2009. And Terrence and I met when we were in a band. So, actually, we were under contract with a label. He joined my band leaving his good job in Boston, a safe job flying with me and being a musician. And then we realized that we weren`t making money and so on — [4:09] JOSHUA: – that this kind of thing was fading, but we decided to start a business together. And all the skills we had in the group applied very well to business.
And that`s how we made it official in 2012, and then in 2014, we moved to an office, we resigned, and we started volunteers full-time. LAURA: Wow. It`s a really, really great story, « How we put. » We were in a band together. It was interesting. We had long hair. LAURA: Wow. Long hair. Oh, really? How did I not see pictures of that? Well, they`re out there. Probably on Facebook or maybe Myspace.
Myspace! Oh, yes. Myspace is always there for music, isn`t it? Oh, yes. All right, great. You know, I feel like one day I`m going to ask you for pictures with long hair, and then we put links on the site — JOSHUA: Of course. Of course. So if any of the listeners here wants to see exactly as I do, you can see. We`ll be delighted. Yes, we have them.
Laura: Well, well, I wanted – there`s a lot of things I wanted to ask you, but you did, you did a lot of evolution and almost iterations with your stuff and the way you do things, and I was hoping you could talk a little bit about what`s going to happen with Teeps for you when we connected and started working together. Of course. Yes, I think it was a really interesting time. I mean, we were, I think, at the end of setting up Agile in our organization, and so, you know, it was kind of a laborious process to have the whole organization at Agile. Maybe at one point we were in the middle of it all, but, uh, you know, we had interpersonal problems and communication problems throughout the organization.
