Neat back story Phil. I always enjoy a rags to riches real-life example that people can relate to. It's great when everything falls in place regardless of setbacks, obstacles, etc.

Thank you! It definitely was not a direct route but sometimes the scenic route is more enjoyable. Biggrin

Very nice. Amazing what you've done with a one person operation. 
Phil, if you don't mind me asking: How much growth is being experienced in the wetshaving industry and how has it changed over time? 
Just curious.

Thank you. I think that there has been tremendous growth in the wet shaving industry over the past 2 or 3 years but, the pie is being divided into many more pieces as well. Amazon and even Walmart.com has seen the growth and gotten involved which has made it much harder for smaller shops to compete. It isn't only pricing and shipping rates that smaller shops cannot compete on but also on SEO. The Amazon Google results always show on top.
