8:16 am
about getting prp, how long before you see results? >> such a great question. it really depends on whether you're using prp to treat thinning hair or hair loss. it has to do with the life cycle of the hair follicles. there are three basic stages. the first one, anagen. the active phase. most of the hairs on our head are in this stage. it lasts between two and six years. then a stage of catagen, lasts for about two weeks. and finally, telogen, this is the resting phase. which can last about two months. when you do prp, it may take 2 to 6 weeks to start to see the results. i have done this myself. i think we have a before and after picture. that was about a six-month time period. it's dramatic. because of cost, some doctors charging $1500, $2000 per treatment. the doctor in our piece in new jersey, about $400, $500. >> didn't know you had gone

guerrilla marketing is essential to their growth. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: what was once a labor of love, he's now planning to build a chickpea empire. >> we have some stores where we're the number one selling pasta overall. >> reporter: like brian, this 19-year-old is also rethinking some of our popular food staples. >> it's protein-infused fluff butter. with his no-cal bars and fluff butter. >> it wasn't until the end of the meeting after we decided to bring in the brand that we heard that he was 18 years old. >> the first six months of the company it was just me and it grew so quickly. >> reporter: while living on a air mattress out of his rented office space, daniel gave himself a crash course in food chemistry to make his protein-enhanced products dairy free. once ready what he hoped were tasty treats, he pitched his concept to major retailers.
8:33 am
>> had a lot of people at the beginning telling me it wasn't possible. >> reporter: in less than a year, d's naturals has gained national distribution. >> if your willing to work and sleep less, anything's achievable. >> anything's achievable. daniel and brian rudolph and our expert tory johnson is here. congratulations, guys. are you still sleeping -- >> i am. >> you don't have a air mattress anymore? >> no. now, it's just a regular mattre mattress. >> moving on. you guys are so passionate about this and eating healthy. chickpeas, really? i was a skeptic but now i'm a believer. why chickpeas? >> pasta is one of my favorite foods and chickpeas are incredibly healthy and they also taste really good. so by now, i can eat one of my favorite foods again, and you end up with double the protein, nearly half the net carbs. >> that's it.
8:34 am
the same with you. so, okay, tory, first of all, lean and mean, that's what you like. >> i do like that. i think that you need to prove your concept before you sign a lease. so i started in my bedroom at a desk and started generating sales and i think that's exactly what you need to do before you go for all the fancy stuff. focus on what matters the most. >> it's great they're passionate. lot of people at home saying i'm passionate about my business, too, but it goes beyond that. >> it definitely goes way beyond passion. it's great to find something that you're passionate about, but passion doesn't automatically produce a paycheck. to create a profitable business takes a lot more than just passion. you did this because you started with something that you love but then you had a plan about how am i going to make money doing this? i think that's what's critical for anyone to focus on -- how am i going to make money from this passion? what are the steps to get there
8:35 am
to making money so that this can be a profitable business. not just a passion. >> and it's a growing business. you have five new varieties coming to the market. >> we have five new varieties of our fluff butter. protein-enhanced nut butter. >> it's not taste-free. >> it's not taste-free, that's the most important part. >> okay, you guys have had success, but you have had those rough times as well, tell me what you have learned from those mistakes that you made. >> absolutely, i made so many mistakes starting out. it's unbelievable. the biggest thing that i've learned is, how do you keep up with production when you have a high-demand product? one thing we had problems with is literally doing that. we haven't spent a dime on marketing. yet our production isn't supporting demand. >> and you didn't put something on the label about peanuts.
8:36 am
>> i don't like to talk about that one. forgetting the allergy warning and throw out a bunch of products, but you learn. >> venture for america, how did they help you? >> it's program that's geared towards creating jobs through entrepreneurship. i was fortunate to go through the program and it provided me with mentorship. someone checked in me every month and helped me as i began my business. if there's one thing that i can say for anyone starting, if you can find a mentor who will push you towards the next step it makes a huge difference. >> okay, we asked people to send in their questions, and that was one from joann, what is the best way to ask someone to become a mentor, tory? >> you can look for formal programs like you did. but if you don't pursue a formal program think of it first in terms of marriage, you wouldn't ask a stranger right off the bat, like, will you marry me? you get to know somebody before you pop the question. the same is true with mentoring. surround yourself with people who are really good with
8:37 am
business. maybe in different areas of business. ask them questions. tweet people questions. you can call people and e-mail. it doesn't have to be only a formal environment. and once you get to someone and they're comfortable, and they feel like they can help you, which any mentor wants to do, then you can say, will you be my mentor? >> i want to get one more in, what's the key to using social media most effectively to promote your business? because i think you guys have done that as well. >> engage regularly, that's critical. small business owners say i'm on facebook, doesn't work. sitting back and expecting the phone to ring doesn't work. so you have to have a regular strategy. every day you're working at it just like you guys are doing. >> so happy for you guys. >> thank you very much. >> everybody's ready to dig in. >> thank you. >> come on, robin, let us eat. >> we will. i have had the pasta. it's not only your passion, it's
8:38 am
really good. >> really appreciate that. >> tory will be taking your questions throughout the morning. tweet her at toryjohnson. out to rob. robin, he sees 8 years old. he made it clear he doesn't want to do the weather. warmer air coming into the east, yeah, take it into the 80s in some spots out ahead of that strong system. look at what happens over the next couple of days. if your north of this stationary front, it's going to be quite chil chilly. 46 degrees tomorrow afternoon. meanwhile the winds count out west, mountain snow and 86 degrees in dallas. that's a quick check on the >> good morning, i am meteorologist mike nicco with low 60s around san francisco, and mid-to-upper 60s sunshine and going to windy today and tomorrow. check out wednesday, our storm-impact scale is "1" and light, but thunderstorms are possible. >> this weathercast brought to you by legalzoom.
8:39 am
we've got a bunch of teenage birthdays. you're turning 13, you're turning 16. congratulations. robin? back inside to you. >> all right, rob, thank you very much. one gram of sugar. >> that's it. >> does she look familiar? this is bob and lee woodruff's daughter, she sent me the banza. she's working with brian. and it's all about networking and getting the story out there. you helped us inspire us to talk about daniel, thank you katherine. >> thank you. >> appreciate it. coming up -- the morning after. the explosive premiere, our exclusive with the women of "game of thrones." come on back.

8:44 am
in season six we kind of start to see it get better? >> i think sansa, she's leaving the relationships for now. she's becoming like her own -- >> she needs to be with herself right now. >> your character has become this total badass. >> you know who i am. zble's always had these cheeky one-liners and the upperhand. this season is the first time we have seen her genuinely broken down. it's nice to play a character coming to that point, to their low point, so late on. >> reporter: we lost saw cersei at her lowest point. >> she's been brought to her knees. she's quite lost and vulnerable. but slowly but surely back comes old cersei with a colder heart. >> that's possible? >> yes.
8:45 am
>> emilia, for you, what has it been like playing daenerys? some call her beyonce of the seven kingdom. >> that's me. my inner beyonce comes out sometimes. i think, you can't hate on dragons. like, you just can't. people get in her way and she's like, i'm going to get my dragons and i'm going to kill you. >> what's cool about your two characters they can speak bolerian. >> my mom laughs at me. when i went to visit, she would literally hear me in my bedroom, like, frustrated. i would run down and go, mom, listen. she would be like, well done. go back upstairs and she would hear me more frustrated and yelling. >> just promise me, whatever happens you'll take care of little sans. >> it's a different season. she's very much out of her comfort zone but in a fun way
8:46 am
rather than a scary way. for the first time which is really cool. >> stop! >> reporter: while the show isn't for the faint of heart, legions of women are tuning in every week. >> i think all of the women are floored. there's no vision of perfection. i think that's why women dig it. bass we're all a little crazy. >> reporter: what are the chances a woman ends up on an iron throne? on a count of three, point to the person you think might end up on the iron throne? ready. one, two, three -- wow. >> you're like sisters. >> the stark sisters. >> reporter: for "good morning america," jesse palmer, abc news, new york. >> that was great, jesse. thank you. coming up, breakout star maren morris performing live, so, don't go anywhere.
