7:03 am
that thing was a rocket. all right. >> we got a lot to talk about today. we're going to begin with the deep freeze that's getting ready to settle into the northeast. while the major snowstorm makes its way across the country. ginger is tracking it all for us as we brace for the weekend. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: michael, good morning to you. we are about to see the bottom drop out with those temperatures. let's go ahead and start with bryant park where the fountain is already frozen, but you can double freeze it by tomorrow morning because this is the coldest air in collie yeathree . this is going to blow that away. burlington could feel like somewhere in the 28 below range. it will feel subzero waking up in new york, and 24 for ithaca. you get that upper level system happening, and it's going to grab that moisture and end up creating snow which it's already done, and minnesota and south dakota, iowa this morning, as that dives south though, places
7:04 am
like nashville that have blown past their seasonal snow totals, going to get more. another 3 to 6 inches there. north of atlanta, a quarter inch of ice could take out power lines. it looks like the heaviest snow though is going to be interior, away from the coast. it'll change terrain here closer to new york, but the south could have big impacts. michael? >> stay home if you can, and bundled up if you go out. thank you so much, ginger. and this storm is expected to bring a blast of snow and ice to several southern states where they are not used to these conditions. elwyn lopez is in atlanta, georgia, with preparations there. good morning, elwyn. >> reporter: hey, michael, good morning. i'm standing in front of 1,500 tons of salt. this is just some of what officials have on hand to try to combat that wintry mix of snow and ice making its way here this weekend. a spokesperson for the georgia department of transportation tells me that they will start brining the roads this afternoon and they have 1.2 million gallons of brine ready to go if needed. as ginger was mentioning, the worst of the storm is expected between late saturday night and
7:05 am
early sunday morning. the national weather service now warning that that might lead to major disruptions to travel and possible power outages. michael, this could also bring in dangerous and even crippling conditions to other parts of the region like the carolinas. >> all right, elwyn, thank you so much for that. we're going to turn to that breaking news overnight, north korea firing two ballistic missiles. this is the third launch this month. this one happening just hours after pyongyang accused the united states of, quote, escalating the situation with sanctions. our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz is tracking the latest. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. there's no quicker way to get the world's attention than a missile launch. this morning, north korea fired not one, but two short-range ballistic missiles. the type of missile appears similar to prior tests. this test launch happening roughly 12 hours after north korea publicly warned of a stronger and certain response after the u.s. announced sanctions against north korea. those sanctions targeting six
7:06 am
north koreans involved in its nuclear and ballistic missile programs. since president biden took office, there have been at least 14 missile tests. well, none of those tests involved long-range or intercontinental ballistic missiles. it is a clear provocation and also shows that the north is working to improve its weapons delivery system, cecilia. >> a clear provocation is right. washington is urging north korea to come to the table but so far it doesn't seem like that's happening. >> reporter: exactly, cecilia. secretary of state blinken said they will meet any time anywhere with no preconditions. those overtures have gone nowhere. fiery language and these missile launches the only response, cecilia. >> thank you. whit. cecilia, turning now to that new development overnight, the australian visa for novak djokovic revoked for the second time. the number one seed now facing possible deportation again just days before the australian open is set to begin. will reeve is tracking the very latest. will, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning. it looks as though the
7:07 am
never-ending rally between novak djokovic and the australian government is game, set and match in favor of the government. after days of review and deliberation amid mounting pressure and scrutiny, australian minister for immigration alex hawke announced overnight he was using his power to once again cancel djokovic's visa on, quote, health and good order grounds on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so. this has been a fiasco for over a week now. after djokovic arrived in australia on an exemption permission to play in the australian open only to be detained at the airport, have his visa canceled, be held at a quarantine facility while supporters were outside clashing with police on the streets below, then he won an appeal of that visa cancellation. after that ruling it was revealed that djokovic was covid positive while attending two public events in his native serbia, knowingly in one case which he later called an error
7:08 am
in judgment. whit? >> will, it's not just this tournament. djokovic is facing a potential three-year ban from the country. >> reporter: whit, that is right. he is appealing this decision right now but if djokovic loses, he could be banned from australia for three years, and abc news has learned that australian officials will detain djokovic at 8:00 a.m. saturday. he will be allowed to spend the day with his lawyers but will be in detention saturday night pending a sunday hearing. if e he loses, it'll lead to that three-year ban. whit? >> the developments just keep coming. will reeve for us, thank you. michael. turning now to the fight against omicron. while we are seeing some encouraging signs in the northeast so many hospitals across the country are dealing with a record number of covid patients. kayna whitworth has an inside look at a children's hospital feeling the strain in dayton, ohio. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: hey, michael, good morning. doctors here at dayton children's hospital say they've seen a huge increase in patients just since the end of december.
7:09 am
most of them are unvaccinated. they say two-thirds of them have underlying health conditions and are experiencing respiratory distress. this morning, hospitals pushed to the brink amid the wild surge of omicron. children's hospitals from here in ohio to texas and beyond reporting dramatic increases in pediatric patients. >> we are seeing huge volumes of kids who are sick, hopefully sick and recovering but sick nonetheless. >> reporter: abc getting an inside look at dayton children's hospital in ohio. they're admitting more patients for covid than ever before and caring for them with less staff. >> we definitely don't have enough people, i don't think anybody has enough people to do anything right now. >> reporter: jackie's 8-month-old baby girl who was a preemie and is underweight has covid. she's suffering from breathing issues, fevers, and has been put on an i.v. because she won't eat. >> her fever is not coming down. is she going to be all right? is she going to be on a ventilator? all that is running through my head.
7:10 am
yes, i am very scared. i am terribly scared. >> reporter: most of the children admitted here are unvaccinated and have underlying conditions, but not all. >> the icu is very busy. we have so many covid patients coming in and out of the unit, and they are all critical. >> reporter: president biden tapping into the military as part of his new pandemic battle plan, deploying medical teams to ohio and five other states to ease critical staffing shortages. biden says he'll also send out 1 billion at-home rapid tests and mke high-quality masks available for everyone and in the northeast hope could be on the horizon. in new york city, the epicenter of the initial omicron surge, as well as washington, d.c., daily new cases are dropping. >> we're seeing some very hopeful signs that we're plateauing or even peaking in many other parts of this country. >> reporter: now the biden administration hopes to deliver the first 500 million tests in the next 60 days. the post office saying they have been able to retain many of their seasonal workers from the
7:11 am
holidays to help deliver those tests. cecilia? >> yeah, it's a big development there. okay kayna, thank you. we turn to the supreme court dealing a major blow to president biden's covid response blocking that vaccine or testing mandate for large employers. the justices, however, did uphold a more limited vaccine mandate. our senior white house correspondent mary bruce has more from the white house. mary, we've been talking about, this is a major setback for the white house covid response team. >> reporter: yes, this is a really big hit for the white house and their efforts to fight the pandemic. the court blocking its vaccination or testing requirement for large businesses. it's a policy which would have impacted more than 80 million employees, requiring that they get vaccinated or wear masks and undergo weekly testing. but the court's conservative majority argued that the federal government overstepped its authority here. now in a smaller win for the white house, the court is allowing a vaccine mandate
7:12 am
employees at federally funded health care facilities to continue. that will impact more than 17 million workers. the president praising that decision saying it will save lives, but biden says he is disappointed that the supreme court has chosen to block commonsense lifesaving requirements for employees at large businesses which were grounded squarely in science and the law. cecilia. >> it was a bad day for the administration. they were also dealt a major blow in their efforts to reform voting rights. >> reporter: yeah, another hit for this white house. the president's big push to pass voting rights is simply going nowhere. he has not been able to get his own party on board. biden met here late yesterday with those two key democratic holdouts, senators manchin and sinema, but there's still no signs of movement. in fact, they doubled down on their opposition to changing the senate rules to pass voting rights legislation. the president as you know late yesterday, sounding defeated, conceding that he does not know if they can get this done, but cecilia, he is vowing to keep up this fight. >> thank you so much. whit. now to the most serious charges to date in the january 6th investigation. the founder of the far-right oath keepers militia group and ten others have been arrested
7:13 am
for seditious conspiracy in the january 6th attack. our cheer justice correspondent pierre thomas is on capitol hill with the latest. pierre, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning. it's exceedingly rare for the justice department to bring a charge of sedition which basically involves trying to overthrow or disrupt your own government. but the fbi says there's mounting evidence that for some the january 6th assault on the u.s. capitol was not some spontaneous event, but planned and premeditated. this morning, the fbi claims that stewart rhodes, the founder of oath keepers militia, was involved in a plot, a conspiracy to commit sedition. >> we have men already outside stationed outside d.c. as a nuclear option in case they attempt to remove the president illegally, we will step in and stop it. >> reporter: the allegation rhodes and ten other oath keepers actively conspired to oppose by force the lawful transfer of presidential power. the government describes oath keepers as an anti-government right-wing militia which heavily recruits current and
7:14 am
former military and law enforcement officials. the fbi believes these images are several oath keepers in tactical gear making their way up the capitol steps in formation on january 6th is evidence that they came prepared to stop president-elect biden from assuming power. >> they're in tactical gear. they have body armor. you know, they're preparing for violence. what we saw was really an attempted coup to a certain extent. >> reporter: according to the indictment, two days after the election, oath keepers founder stewart rhodes messaged followers. we aren't getting through this without a civil war. prepare your mind, body, and spirit, and days later writing, we must now do what the people of serbia did when milosevic stole their election. march on the nation's capitol. refuse to accept it and march en masse to the nation's capital. others staged an armed quick strike force in virginia not far from the capitol. in a statement last night, rhodes' attorneys says the government's case is based on
7:15 am
lies and that he has the documents to prove it. michael. >> all right, we'll see what happens in court there. pierre, thank you. now to tens of thousands of former students about to see their college debt erased. it's part of a nearly $2 billion settlement with a company that was once one of the nation's largest service loan servicers. rebecca jarvis joins us now with more. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: yeah, good morning to you, michael. this is a giant settlement and for those who took on debt, thousands of americans over the last couple of decades, help could be on the way very soon. this morning, thousands of former college students nati nationwide may soon see debt relief. navient, once one of the country's largest student loan servicers facing claims it made predatory loans agreeing to a $1.85 billion settlement. >> these loans as he says were doomed to fail from the start and navient knew it. >> reporter: now, 66,000 borrowers in 38 states and washington, d.c., with private education loans that were
7:16 am
started between 2002 and 2014 when navient was a unit of sally mae, will have their balances canceled if the deal is approved by a federal court. these borrowers will primarily include those with low credit scores who had more than seven consecutive months of delinquent payments prior to june 30, 2021. another 350,000 federal student loan borrowers should receive $260 each from navient's $95 million restitution payment. >> to say that this company tormented me is an understatement. >> reporter: drexel university alum alexis miller says she took out $60,000 in loans from navient, but after penalties, it quickly ballooned to an $82,000 debt. >> having this settlement is more than just repaying off loans, you know, it's life changing. >> reporter: navient, which did not admit fault in the settlement, said in a statement it did not act illegally but chose to resolve the claims which it called unfounded to avoid additional burden,
7:17 am
expense, time, and distraction. for those who are eligible, this should be automatic. they will be sending awe letter in the next couple of months, and if you are waiting for that check, make sure your information is all up to date on the department of education's website. fill out any missing information, so guys, you get that check. guys? >> all right, rebecca. thank you so much. we're going to switch gears here. someone had a little extra money for a marvelous purchase. take a look. "spider-man" comic book, listen to this, a single page swinging into the record books selling at auction for a record $3.36 million. >> one page? >> one page. it blew away the previous record of about $657,000. i can tell you, i am not the buyer. >> what about the rest of the comic book? >> how much is that worth? >> follow-up-free zone. i have no answers. we're following a lot of other headlines this morning, including a serious one, prince

7:34 am
with the suit going forward andrew's team will likely have to provide evidence to back up claims and others like denying giuffre's claims that he was sweaty the night she says they first met. >> there is a slight problem with the sweating because i have a peculiar medical condition which is that i don't sweat or i didn't sweat at the time. >> reporter: and virginia giuffre has been tweeting that she's pleased at the chance to expose the truth as she calls it and that her goal has always been to show that the rich and powerful are not above the law. cecilia. >> james, i know this is a hugely significant move by the queen. stripping him of his title. what's the reaction there in the uk? >> reporter: well, to be honest, cecilia, prince andrew has never been the most popular member of the royal family, but i think really people's issue is the damage this is doing to the monarchy and the queen as a mother. you know, this is a woman of an advanced age and she should be celebrating her jubilee year, the longest reigning monarch in british history. cecilia. >> all right, james longman, thank you so much.

becky worley has all the details. becky, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning to you. they're meant to help you find your keys but allegations today that apple airtags are being physically planted on people so that they can be tracked. this morning, increasing concern about apple's airtags. law enforcement officials in new jersey issuing a warning to officers saying, airtags and similar devices pose an inherent threat to law enforcement as criminals could use it to identify officers' sensitive locations, et cetera. the issue not limited to police. >> i was seeing videos all over tiktok and everywhere else of people getting notifications on their phones that an airtag has been following them and people are like placing them on their cars and stuff. >> reporter: adrianna was out shopping with a friend when one of their phones showed this airtag notification. it reads this item has been moving with you for awhile. the owner can see its location. >> there was a map that showed it followed our exact location from target all the way back to her house. >> reporter: these two women are not alone.
7:43 am
>> i was at a bar in tribeca. had my coat on the chair behind me and once i was already on my walk home, halfway home, i got the notification someone is tracking you and has been for awhile. >> reporter: "sports illustrated" swim suit model brooks nader said she was tracked through new york city suspecting the tag was placed in her coat when she wasn't looking. >> it was the scariest, scariest moment ever. >> reporter: the airtag by apple is meant to be attached to things frequently lost like keys or wallets, and then a person can track their airtag location with other devices like cell phones. >> their precision and location tracking is also very, very accurate. so, if you're being tracked for nefarious purposes, or if your car is being tracked to be stolen later, that is very concerning, but unfortunately very accurate. >> reporter: for android phone users apple has also released an android-based app called tracker detect designed to allow android users an option to track these tags. apple tells abc news, we take customer safety very seriously
7:44 am
adding, if users ever feel their safety is at risk, they're urged to call local law enforcement who can work with apple to provide any available information about the unknown airtag. apple has instructions about what to do if you get one of these messages that an unknown airtag has been with you for a while. they say you can make it play a sound so you can physically find the tag. they add that you can see if the owner has marked it as lost, maybe this was all a mistake, but if you think you're being intentionally tracked they say contact local authorities to work with apple to find out what's going on, whit. >> to underscore what you noted earlier, this is not so much about the issue of the airtags that you buy, but a problem with them planting them on you or in your jacket or somewhere like that. >> reporter: exactly right. that connection between the airtags that you buy for your keys that communicate with your phone, that is secure. this is people intentionally purchasing their own airtags and nefariously putting them on you
7:45 am
or your car. this is an intentional act and it's definitely not what this technology was intended for. >> criminals finding a different use for it. all right, becky, thank you so much. coming up later, rebecca jarvis is breaking down three tips to help you level up your business. and coming up next, we have our friday "play of the day." >> go long. next, we have our friday "play of the day." >> go long.

decide to go on this health journey? >> oh, goodness, for me, you know, just like so many of us, i gained so much weight during the pandemic between gyms closing, being locked up at home, supporting my restaurants via take-out and i was also recovering from an injury, a knee injury, so i just gained so much weight, i decided enough was enough and in july i decided to press the reset button and get back to health. >> gregory, i understand this wasn't all about the food. you really had an intense workout routine as well. tell us about it. >> sure, you know, i actually started power walking in the beginning because i'm a little bit older, my knee was inflamed. so i thought power walking was really a fantastic way, i could do it on the treadmill, i could do it outside when the weather was okay and that's what got me going. that's what got my body moving and after a few months of power walking i was able to run outside again and hit the gym and get back to being myself. >> when it came to the new diet, if other folks like me want to push the reset button, what are the tips that worked for you? >> so i truly went into a great
8:23 am
lean protein, high protein diet with lots of low carb vegetables, super low carb. that doesn't mean it's not delicious and not satiating. you can things like this beautiful golden roasted chicken definitely skin on, because fat is a fantastic fuel source. your body actually prefers to run on fat than carbohydrates. this is a super low carb vegetables, cauliflower and red cabbage cooked in olive oil, again another high delicious fat and i serve with lots of leafy greens. to make my collard greens we start with onion and garlic and great olive oil, i'm going to add some washed collards and they've just been cut into shreds. i hit that with a little bit of chicken stock and you can use veg stock or water if you're vegan or vegetarian, and i add some chipotle for some
8:24 am
smokiness, some salt for seasoning and flavor, of course, and i'll let that simmer for 40 minutes. what you get at the end is this beautiful stew of these collard greens finished with tamari soy sauce and a little bit of apple cider vinegar and this is low fat, super nutrient dense. you can eat so much of this and be full and feel great and it's the perfect pair with high fat protein as well. >> you got our mouths watering. i understand you talk about a whole system cleanse. there are so many different ways to go about doing that and products on the market, but what do you think is the best approach to that? >> for me i drink so much tea. i really kind of -- started limiting coffee intake and the caffeine intake and just focused on herbal tea, tons of great herbal teas out there,
8:25 am
nutrient-dense teas. if i need a pick me up i do sometimes black or green tea. those are all great and high in antioxidants and you get that pick me up. tea is great because you can have it hot, cold, you can have it throughout the day and it's also very filling so you feel like you're full and it's super low cal to no cal, so it's a great option for that reset button as well. >> i've been trying to do the tea train here in our studio but, gregory, this is a marathon. this journey is a marathon. it's not a sprint and i'm sure there's a time within your journey that you felt like giving up. what was your motivation to keep going? >> absolutely. so for me, you know, realizing that i was getting older, it actually took so much longer for me to see some results, you know, i was like, when is it going to happen? you just have to keep going and keep persevering. exercise, count your calories, track your food. when i saw the number on the scale getting lower my clothes started to fit again and actually knee started to feel like myself again. i could move. my back didn't hurt. everything just started to feel better. that's when i knew that
8:26 am
everything was working and that inspired me to keep going. my advice is, if you want to have a cheat day, don't be scared. if you want to have a couple of french fries on sunday have a couple. just don't have a whole bag and the most important thing is don't feel guilty about your cheat day. if you want to cheat and have a piece of cake, enjoy time with your friends, enjoy it. revel in that moment and don't feel guilty the next day. >> all right, great advice. we appreciate it. i'll make that chicken this weekend. thank you so much. find these recipes on and you can check out chef gregory's new restaurant kann when it opens in spring in portland, oregon. everybody, stay with us.

everybody knows that down coats are really warm but they can also be really expensive. so you want to look for down alternatives, things like polyester that will keep the price low but your body temperature high. you're also looking for material, nylon finishes are the most durable and water resistant and the fit really matters, you want to be able to layer underneath but keep it snug so you keep all that cold air out. >> cold air out, heat in, lori. let's get started with this cropped puffer. tell us about it. >> that's right, michael. it's all about a cropped pumper. puffer. i had this one from nordstrom in this black ripple and i believe in the studio you have the red one which, fun fact, according to global shopping services, red puffers are up 149% just from last month. so if you see a red one you're going to want to buy it. this one is great. it has a drawstring on the bottom so like i said with fit it will keep that cold air out and warmth in.
8:33 am
>> michael loves himself a cropped puffer. lori, tell us about the jackets with the shine. i keep seeing them in the store, they're popular this year. >> that's right. it's all about the wet look and we're obsessed with this one from target. you guys have a yellow one, i believe, in the studio and i have this berry one here. and what's so great about this puffer and all of them really, is that you can get an amazingly warm puffer for an incredible price. you do not need to spend a lot of money. these are under $30. they're cropped and the style is great. what's not to love? >> what is not to love and when the temperatures drop you need a longer coat so is this one that you have here going to keep us warm? >> it sure is. so this one is from amazon. these start around $79 and, of course, cropped is cute. we love that, but you want something that's really warm. this one will keep you super cozy and, michael, we also love that it comes with a belt because puffers can sometimes get out of control.
8:34 am
this lets you have a waist and it has a removable faux fur hood so it's a great price again. >> you had me at that hood there. lori, all right, not just for the ladies. we're roping in your husband, nick, i'm told. we got him in a puffer. let's see. where is he? what do the guys need to know if they're shopping for puffers. hi, nick. >> okay, so, ladies, we all know that uniqlo is like the gold standard. this has a dual construction. nick looks great in it and it's lightweight so it will keep him warm but not too much volume which i know he loves. you love this, right? >> fantastic. >> and that price, cecilia, all of these are really affordable. you do not need to spend a lot of money to stay warm all winter long. >> nick, nick woke up early to get one word, "fantastic." i like it.
8:35 am
lori, for a lot of people looking for deals, should you buy now or should you wait? >> so, michael, great question. as soon as we see a dip in prices and a lot of these are great deals, we're also going to see a dip in inventory and sizing and color, so if you see a puffer that you love this weekend, snap it up. because, again, the prices will drop in february, but there is no guarantee they'll have your color or your size. >> all right, lori bergamotto. thank you as always thanked nick for is. see you later. have a great weekend.

we are back we are back now here on "gma" with that new ruling in one of the most notorious assassinations in american history, sirhan sirhan convicted of killing senator robert f. kennedy in 1968 is going to remain in prison after california governor gavin newsom reversed a parole board decision that would have set him free. robert f. kennedy's dur daughter kerry kennedy is here to talk to us about it. thanks for being with us. >> thank you. >> i want to start by getting your reaction to governor newsom's decision to reverse -- that sirhan sirhan is going to stay in prison. >> yes, i'm very, very deeply gratefulto the governor for that decision. i think this is a man who has
8:39 am
shown no remorse, who has shown no ability to take responsibility for his crime, and he is a current danger to the people of california and to our country. >> sirhan sirhan -- >> so i'm grateful to the governor for his decision. >> and sirhan sirhan, i know you know, has been in prison for 53 years. there is some division in your family, however, about his parole. your brothers, robert and douglas, have been advocating for his release. have you spoken to them and if so, what's their reaction this morning? >> sure, i've spoken to them over the last four months. you know, i come from a family with 11 children and from my grandma and grandpa rose and joe kennedy, we have over 150 family members, so there's always going to be somebody in there who doesn't agree with you. but i think that the thing to
8:40 am
focus on here is who is this man? this was a premeditated act. he said i've been planning this for years. he went -- he went and purchased a gun. he went to target practice that morning. he went and purchased the type of bullet that is most likely to be fatal. he went to the hotel where my father was speaking. he killed my father. he shot five other people that night. it was a massacre. this was not a simple killing. this was a massacre and he nearly killed my mother who was pregnant with my younger sister rory. and this is a man who has taken no responsibility and shown no remorse for his actions. was constantly blaming others and he would be a very, very
8:41 am
scary person to release on the streets of california. >> in that vein, sirhan's attorney says he, quote, shows no threat to society. how do you respond? >> i just think that's wrong. i think if you -- anybody who reads the transcript at the last parole hearing in which he was asked for instance about any incident in the kitchen just a little while before covid hit, and he said to the cook, come and meet me in the back room. he's asked by the commissioner, why did you say that and he said because i had to show him that i could hurt him very badly. now, this is somebody with a hair-trigger emotional reaction any time he feels that he's been
8:42 am
wronged. and it's easy to get a handgun in this country. he used a handgun, no, you know, smaller than the size of a fist to kill my father and shoot five other people and he has shown none of the needed emotional, deep emotional change one has to go through in order to be released to society, in order to earn that release. >> well, kerry kennedy, it is important to have your voice on this this morning. we appreciate your time. thank you for being with us. we'll head back to ginger now. >> thank you. >> yes, cecilia, one of the quickest ways to see who will be impacted the most is this map. with this storm this weekend, interstate 80 where it meets 35, so des moines in that red area. then, if you go into northeast georgia, western south carolina, along 40 from nashville east, that's going to be an impact area too. remember, today is iowa,

tomorrow is the ♪ level up ♪ it's time now to level up your business. so many people left their jobs during the pandemic and millions have started their own businesses or revamped them to stay afloat. the experts say this could be the best time to do it. rebecca jarvis is back to tell us how to make your move. hey, rebecca. >> reporter: hey, nice to see you again, michael. and this has been a time of rethinking and reimagining for so many people and as part of that vision of the future includes starting a business, listen up. like so many entrepreneurs when the pandemic hit, paint bucket founder kristen pulaski had to rethink her business.
8:44 am
but as weeks turned into months, the brooklyn-based nail salon once thriving needed to figure out a new source of revenue so she turned to the community she built an instagram. >> i was realizing that our following was nationwide and it made me think, how can we expand into the rest of the country? >> reporter: she and her team began offering virtual tutorials and classes but the game changer was creating an e-commerce business with shopify offering merchandise including their signature nail wraps, something she had always wanted to do and finally had a reason. >> i got so accustomed to only working in a brick and mortar service-oriented business and then i had to figure out how you manage an e-commerce website. it was scary and there were definitely nights i would cry or not know if what i was doing was the right thing. >> reporter: americans have been quitting their jobs and starting new businesses like never before in the last year. in november 2021, a record 4.5 million voluntarily exited
8:45 am
while new business applications hit a record 5.4 million last year. >> for a long time the idea of becoming an entrepreneur and starting a business was expensive and complicated. what has happened is that technology has made it really easy for anyone with an idea to sell a product. >> reporter: and whether you're starting a new business or hoping to pivot like kristin, there are a few steps to keep in mind. first, know your customer. >> have a deep understanding and a deep empathy for the people that are buying from you. ask them, who are you? how did you hear about me? what do you love most about my business and what do you hate about my bids? >> reporter: next, become an expert. >> deeply understand your product. if you are making tea or you're making t-shirts or you're a nail salon make sure you have an incredible product. >> reporter: finally, consider the value of this moment in time. >> the cost of failure is so low right now that you if try something and it doesn't work it's okay to try something else. this is the best time to start a business maybe ever.
8:46 am
>> reporter: as for kristin she says business is better than ever. >> how did i not do this sooner? i want to create so much more for people across the country. >> reporter: and as kristin lays outso beautifully here, there is a lot of upside but running a business is hard no matter what time of year or time in the world we're facing which is why you really want to start if you're thinking about this, start with your why. are you running away from something or running towards something? if your vision is something you really believe in, that's a sign that you should be starting a business. also make that plan, a business plan, ask yourself who are my customers, what am i selling, how am i making money and what is my long-term goal for the company? finally, michael, you got to line up funding. if you don't have it yourself think about who you will reach out to and how you will pitch them on this groundbreaking idea, michael. >> rebecca, great advice as always. thank you so much. coming up, aly and aj bringing us a special performance. stay right there. we'll be right back with more "gma."
