Advertising, where you know exactly how much you are spending per new customer, and the inventory to entice your customers and double your investment.

  • Insightful podcast Brandon. I love hearing people’s success stories but this one was more refreshing as it showed how someone bounced back after making some mistakes ($100,000K in debt is a lot and he could have thrown in the towel if he didn’t believe in his product) – I’ve made some mistakes myself which is has taken some motivation out of me.
