Age isn't the only factor, my parents were teenage parents so at age 43 the kids were already out of the house. I am 41 and my daughter is about to turn 7. I remember celebrating with my mom when she turned 30. I was a teenager, big difference. I am one of those “old” parents though I do not feel that way!
I will retire after 20 years in the Marine Corps on August 1st 2020. I am going to start a new career as an airline pilot so I hope I have the energy to pursue a new career!
Everyone's dance is different and people's motivations are just as diverse as they are. There are lazy twenty somethings, and motivated twenty somethings. Same same for people in their 40s like us.
Doug is our guy. I am invested in this company, so I am going to support their decision. I used to sell CutCo knives in college. Those things were so easy to sell. I was once the regional salesman of the year, but honestly those products sold themselves. I still have my cutco knives from college.
Once people try our products they will begin to sell themselves no matter who is driving. Just like with Cutco all I had to do was follow a script and a proven plan. Doug told us he has a proven repeatable plan. Doug will get our products on the shelves. To me this is the most important step right now. I do agree with him. Our company is not viable with online sales only. We have to get into the big Box stores. If he can do it, I don’t care what age he is. Remember he guaranteed us a major deal in the podcast!
I see all of your points. But the situation we are in right now is Doug is the guy and that is our reality. So as supporters of RMHB I think we need to get behind them and show our resolve as investors. Best of luck to us all!!! I truly wish you and your family the best.
