As some of you may recall, here at Dealbreaker we have a favorite (ex-) banker daughter, and her name is Nell Diamond. Daughter of Bob, she stole our hearts back in 2012 when she took to Twitter to release a statement re: her father's departure from Barclays during the British bank's Libor scandal that read: “George Osborne and Ed Miliband you can go ahead and #HMD.”
At the time, Diamond the Younger was working as an analyst at Deutsche Bank; she's since left her post and graduated from Yale School of Management. And now, she wants to sell you bedding and offer circadian rhythm advice. Namely, what to do with yourself in the 30 minutes before hitting the hay.
She went to Paris to have sheets made she could test out; she attended business school at Yale where “I worked out the entire supply chain,” she explained. The goal of Hill House Home, she added, is a “super, super, easy, easy customer experience that should take two minutes and fits into people’s budgets where there’s a link between price and quality. The designs are like nothing on the market.” A starter set of a fitted sheet with pillowcases begins at $250...As for her own dozing patterns, Ms. Diamond sleeps seven or eight hours a night, which she tracks using a Jawbone. She keeps her bedroom as uncluttered as possible and avoids “hidden sources of caffeine,” like chocolate. She has a policy of no screen-time 30 minutes before bed. In that 30 minutes, “I’ll read,” she said. “I’ll look at myself in the mirror. I’ll talk to myself. I’ll talk to my husband.”
