It was so severe he had to do wall stretches to comfortably sit through his first meeting of the day. Based on doctor's advice, he started shopping for a new mattress, pillow, and sheets but was alarmed at the cost and contradictory advice.
After he spent thousands of dollars, he quickly realized two things: one, more money doesn't buy better sleep, and two, stores never accept returns!
The sleep industry is dominated by two enormous companies that own almost all brands -- both big and small. These two companies reap huge profits by designing products with artificially high prices and swifter replacement cycles. The markup can be as high as 12 - 16x. The result is we all end up paying outrageous sums of money for below-average sleep.
After hundreds of sleep tests, we successfully created something amazing: we perfected our mattress, pillows, and bedding, all designed to work in concert to help you sleep better.
Our products are the only sleep products that combine innovation with luxury hotel quality. Because we use the most recent sleep science to guide our in-house design, select only the highest quality materials, and use some of the world's most advanced manufacturing facilities, we can guarantee more comfortable sleep.
And because we bypass distributors and retailers by selling online and take advantage of volume discounts from recurring orders by large luxury hotels, we can actually deliver higher quality sleep at a mere fraction of the normal retail price.
After hitting the slopes, Stephanie loves to settle into bed with her newest novel. With a background in tourism and hospitality, she's always appreciated the way soft, luxurious hotel sheets can completely change her day for the better.
As an expert in crowdfunding and e-commerce logistics, she has lectured at Hong Kong Polytechnic University and served as Country MD for an online luxury service until her company exited.
Stephanie started her career in advertising at DDB modeling herself after Don Draper for many years. She has a Bachelor's and Master's from USC.
Despite her busy schedule, she's able to sleep approximately 10.5 hours a night. She blames oversleeping on our sheets: "Why would I want to get out of bed?"
Rick is a scuba diver and world traveler.
Prior to Hush Home, Rick served as Head of International Expansion and Country MD for two consumer fintech companies. He started his career sleeping very little as an M&A associate climbing the proverbial corporate ladder. Rick graduated from Duke and named his pomeranian puppy after the school.
His different roles have posted him around the world -- in the US, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Rick's frequent travel made him notice he slept remarkably better at high end hotels -- so he has made sure all our sleep products are made to the same exacting standards.
His most common method to beat jet lag is to sleep a little more.
