"Of the year and stepfather but bonus Bob I'm a bonus dead so it made me feel good because she is not falling into that trap and Rice Society that Ah you know you got a job out. Can't pay it off for in here in that Corner Office looking out the window point. Here's here's what's really crazy about it is. I don't have a college degree I went for. Maybe a half semester. Either to know exactly where you like this lawless as soon as you got you know. Ah Yeah it just wasn't for me what I WANNA do. How do you know it? Nineteen restaurants semester. I was like no I have so many any you know at one point where I was. I had eight hundred people reporting to me and the majority of them had degrees some of them had. Mba's and I'm thinking you're you're making making like forty five grand a year. I'm making this. I don't have a degree but it just proves that sometimes they'll have to write about what you learn and what you know and and you know how you present yourself right so you know for me you would never know That I don't have a degree. Right would never know that Gary v doesn't I'm looking for Richard Branson dropped out of high school. Yeah right yeah. That's a great story. Well that this is you that tells me that. Is My blonde go. So that's just the purest form it's aged it's distilled and then within two months comes out of the the the still goes right into the bottle so we have a little bit more pepper. Yep a little finish that have but this is tempered by the right now. She's not a drinker right. Yeah you really did. We got one more on. Ah I WANNA ask you about curious inception yes so yes so. What did that start? was that after you started. Yeah Doc so actually we started teak and then there was a good six months window where everything was just happening behind the scenes. So what we really wanted to do was further individuals to not be trapped by corporate so a lot of people don't know where to start right so we wanted to create a startup consulting company. Meaning I love that. This is where you begin because most of the time in the start of phase we talk ourselves out of it rang is i. Don't don't have enough money okay. Well how do we solve that problem. Going back to the problem solving is okay. I don't know how to market on social media. Well that's I teach you that. That's not the problem. I don't know how to file. LLC or an S. Corp or what's the difference. Well that's just the problem that we can solve so all of these little things they become you know sort of like a Webinar dinar. And we've had people reach out to us like how can we start. You know this is my idea but I'll also be very raw and honest with them like I. Don't I like your idea on or you know you have a good idea. But here's what's going to have to go into it you know. Are you going to Pat Pat. You know so it's like if if you're creating a product maybe the best way is to just create the product get the patent and license it out and then you can make your money off the licenses so so just trying trying to get people to think in more of a broad scope Of Business and understand what you're going to understand what to expect your the first couple months your first year. You're probably not gonNA make any money right now. But the people see these youtube stars or the Rams Star and they're like. Hey yeah that's an the nominee. I like that you're doing that because you could. Just you know quit your job and start at Your Business and said Hey I started my view. Do it yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah your help change. The world does because you know with that being said is being able to impact one person. Personally who can pay it forward. That's truly what what it's about is creating a legacy that so that's my legacy and who knows where it's GonNa go right. I don't know I have to tell you. I love the packaging and product. I love everything about it but my favorite part is the create your legacy. Because I'm thinking we go to lake book signings signings are CD released parties Grand Openings and I always like to take a bottle of wine but I think that's the perfect gift to give somebody when they're taking that leap of faith and see are absolutely now. Is You know here. Create your legacy. Absolutely I have a friend who is a realtor in when they buy a house he will give about you know so yeah the create your legacy. It was just that was very important for me to have that to get that out there to challenge people that you don't have to do whatever you're doing you do so much more and now I'm in that mindset. Why wouldn't she want one point? Did we point the back of the bottles out. Because that's where it is. Yes so point that out now. Has the story of the Hummingbird. Yeah Yep it has a partial title a part of the story of the humming bird and the other thing about is like. I don't know if that one no so on this one. We changed distributors. Because we're very proud the being michigan-based One of very few but now are importer if you look at this one imported by TC. Spirits can't Michigan. Oh we're our own importer now. Wow so you know that way we never have to change anything You know per bottle so I it's always there and one of the other long-term goals because you always Wanna the thing long-term is bringing other spirits from other countries here to America so that's something that we started to work on. There was a gen- from Switzerland that we were working on bringing on them so it kind of fizzled out because Colman's but springtime we'll start back up with that again. Okay okay fantastic really good. We'll have you back. Yeah Tasty Jim makes you sent so i. It has nothing to do with going you. They were four four. We have. Fortunately Yeah we're not fair. No time for four on we have to have you back. He said okay. You go for okay so if someone was to make a movie of your life who would you cast asked to play you the rock the rock very good choice good. The shooting is there an educator that was influential educator as far as school curriculum or just an someone monette in an educator can be school can be someone that taught you something I I would honestly say reading. Richard Branson's book Losing my virginity virginity was definitely a teaching moment because I learned what he went through. People think it's all GLITZ and glamour. Almost was bankrupt multiple times he had to sell L.. Shit off just to make his company work and his airline started because of a fluke. I love his winter flu. I would say I. I learned a lot from Richard. Branson's book okay. Okay Your Mantra is change your mind. Change your world create your legacy. So what what advice would you give to somebody who wants to start that process. Be Open. you know there's going to be a lot of people that right off the bat you're going to be discouraged. Yeah so because people people don't believe in their own dreams. So how are they going to believe in yours right right and so keep it close to you. Don't tell everybody that was going out. That is that something that you don't share with people So so at first. I'm very open now. I'm I'm extremely open you. You asked me a question. You're going to get an answer. Might might like it. You might not like the answer but I'm completely transparent But at the beginning I think you know had I not told everybody because when we didn't come out with Tequila right away it was all he's on some bullshit. It's it's not happening but then when it came out like we sold doubt in our first store in hours people were like. Oh Wow he really did it. Best friends it was a busy busy day that then it just kind of went from there but you know keep keep it close because there's GonNa be a lot of people that that are very negative and they can talk you out of your dream. They came right and it happens. All you need some selective hearing. Okay would you rather have one dream come true or give that chance to your significant other a significant other. Yeah already knew is that actually gave me chills because visit you know she. She made my dream come true so now everything I do is for her to be able to live the life that she deserves. So that's All right rocky that cookies lane fortune cookies and this is how we make our business probably better the most yet I ask so we toss cookies. And whatever the prongs face it means that fortunate was free. Okay and let's end it when we read it. Let's put the Quila. Yeah Yup thank you. That's more than that one's yours. My name I.

"Under. They say it's changing how people think or People's experiences so you know I know that's how take me how good drink Tequila in college it is. It's the stereotype is that you just falls into the stereotype but a good Tequila. Like a premiums Akilah or a super premium Tequila you sip and typically what you do is to get all of it and is you take a little sip and just kind of let it rest in your palate and then you sip tip from there so let your it opens your taste. Buds up and then you can really get the flavor so a lot of the times on your second sip or third sip you you get even more so it becomes more. This is really good. Oh my God you taste the coconut coconut. It's not an artificial sweet coconut fan at all. Did you like the whole Malibu Anything Yeah No. I'm not a drinker with absolutely because some of them are so sugary so artificial. That's what it is. You're the never liked Akilah. Made with Corn Syrup Tequila so no so tequila comes from the Blue Weber Gabbay. So Tequila is actually one of the most regulated spirits in the world is Kinda Champagne. Cognac has to come from a particular region so Tequila actually has to come from police go And it his trademarked by the Mexican government. The word Tequila so there's a lot of nuances that that we didn't know that we had to go in. And you learn on the job Bob. Sometimes I didn't know that we picked the hardest spirit. But isn't it interesting the things you don't know you go in blindly. It had you everything. You probably wouldn't agree. One hundred eight hundred sometimes split. Ah Different things but we don't know what you don't know going in. You know we it was. Let's just figure it out. I'm we're smart people and and I always used to tell my friends we'd sit in the back you know and just have a bonfire before any of the start in A. I said we're way too smart and ambitious to work for somebody else. Yeah why and some fortunate because like I one of those friends. I'm the only one that has done this you know. Wow because basically we we get trapped by a job right right you start buying shit and I have to work more shit. It's really bad. I just call it the a trap while the truth is there's no job security. I don't know why there's a false security it is a very false sense. The security is the money that makes us feel good so on the weekend we become weekend warriors. We buy stuff that we don't really have an yeah. That was one of the things when I left Corporate America I purged. I went through shit that I didn't need anymore. Like why. Why do I even have this? Yeah I haven't even broke it out in fifteen years I don't need and then I just started selling stuff and You know it wasn't too. I mean it ended up supplementing a little bit of income of course but you know I mean I. I have now had a paycheck in over two years. Wow I still have a decent amount of in my bank account because I set myself up for this. Yeah and you have to plan for it. You have to understand that. There's going to be a lot of things that you can't plan for but as much as you can then like just to be prepared. Yes that we anything so. When we were doing the Tequila we found out? Wow knock on the door you we have tariffs now now that we never had before when we started this and they weren't little I mean they were in the thousands but my wife actually had a cushion so we could take care of them. Okay so she is a financial planner. She did an amazing job. Yeah Mba in business. She's bilingual so Spanish fluently. So yeah so so. This was all meant to ask you something. Because I I listened to an interview that you did and the get get up okay. Yeah which was great interview And it was a two hour interview and I was only going to listen to like twenty minutes because I already did enough research. Research site the angle. I listened to the whole lower because so good you it. It was just such A. You had such a wealth of knowledge but one of the things that you talked talked about was The universe all we sent sends a signs of some. You talked about You know it's normal to have obstacles when you're enterpreneur. You'RE GONNA have have setbacks. That's normal but one of the things that you know. I find that so many of us struggle with is when you do get to the crossroads and you you do have the obstacle next to Co.. How do you know that that isn't the sign from the universe that you should pivot in? Try something different. So I trust my instinct a lot more Specifically gleaned from that time seeing the humming bird when I asked for a sign that was saying that the universe is going to take over and it put me at ease so so we we still have a ton of obstacles but the way that I look at them now is quite differently and the richest people and I don't do this for money money. I do this because I want to create a legacy. I want something that I can be proud of that. I do forever so when I look at these obstacles. Now it's like the richest people in the world. The most successful are typically problem solvers. So they solve a problem like a laptop Aboul right. You know a fortune cookie. I guess was is a problem. We need a fortune cookie. So that's the way that I look at. It is if it's not meant to be I can't problem solve. I cannot solve solve this problem and now the way that we look at it is we can always solve a problem. There's always a way to actually I. If there's something an obstacle Michael How do I get over it if I figure out. I just can't get over it then it's time to give up and so I haven't yet found that way not to get oversight. We're we're happy that you. What is the problem? That teak is gonNA solve so I think the biggest problem. We're we're going to solve as a company is the perception of Tequila. Land that you know it's very drink you know you're gonNA change the mind. Hey it's just something that you know we've been on TV a couple of times and we've talked about it is it's a healthier spiritus gluten free. It's Kito friendly low when sugar low in carbs you know what a friend of mine show Brian. If he's listening was over the other day and I was telling them you were going to be on the show and what what this was about found. He said that Tequila is the only alcohol alcoholic. Drink that is a non depressant correct. It's an opera. So that's why lights viewed as a party drug You know but it's it is it's it's an upper it's kito friendly so now l.. So the thing about that is it is. It's an upper i. It brings you into a better mood and so I think that's where the stereotype kinda comes in that people feel good. They're out on the dance. Dancefloor you don't feel all the aches and pains you know you're just drinking and drinking and drinking but the next day because you overindulged you get sick back and people typically blame onto Keila. But I've gotten sick off a wine I've got the other thing about. It is mixing so if oh yeah you know. Let's say you have three Shitty Margaritas. And then you have a shot at Tequila and the next day. You're like Oh Tequila. Well No. It's because you have a lot of sugar. Your body will not processed sugar. It'll make you sluggish and stuff. So it's a probiotic it's a prebiotics. It helps with digestion. Like there's so many different things from a plane right just a little Tequila. It's the holiday season and so let's talk about from your website. The PUMPKIN Spice Guy So the Pumpkins so I like this. The other thing too is I like really challenging being. Let's do something different and so sitting at home it was. It was actually strategic so it does a lot of these things that we do their strategic marketing in so pumpkin spice Margarita pumpkins Halloween no-brainer. Right but also Thanksgiving so I have the recipe here. That's really you. Can I read it all right here. We go so. What are you pouring? I tell us before I start reading the switch to Keeler we now. We're going to try a little bit of what we've been told the smoothest Blanco Tequila that anybody has tried. And I've gotten this a lot but I'd like your opinion all right so the Pumpkin. I'm can spice. Margarita starts with your response Tequila represent. Oh thank you don't speak Spanish. Just say real quick Merck from local screams just just said I'm going to start drinking warriors liqueur. ooh fresh lime juice a simple Syrup Pumpkin puree. Oh Wow pumpkin spice yes and then you rim the Margarita glass with cinnamon. Sugar shake it all together. Strain it over ice and I know you can finding on the on the website yes which is TC spirits dot com correct. We have a lot of others very simple recipes because purple shooter. The purple shooter is really good. And here's the thing with that. Is We actually do a lot of things with this an a Detroit company called salt flow and they make Artesian flavored favored sea salt. Oh Mom and their British. So they're doing some incredible things. I won't give it away but we're doing something on TV with them very but the purple shooter because it's sweet and then you do a salty ram we did have I think it was a blueberry or a dragon fruit flavored cease. It was amazing. No good salty. Coconut Lime. Yeah so good. That sounds good. Lot of good ones. They're just easy to make it home. Because I'm not a mixologist allergists. I'm an intoxicated. toxicologist Mary Mary for your Catholic population. Very funny he does. He have anything for Baptists Pineapple Margarita. I wanted to ask the question question because you know shark tank is so popular. There's a shark one hold on. I saw that shirt great lake chartres. I may have studied study base. You have you. Are you looking at doing this going on there. So have you had any. I'm a big fan of the show. I really am I. I love love the show because it talks business. One of the things about it is they want to take way too much and so so I literally get this all the time and there's one time I think I broke it down you know. I don't want somebody to take a lot of the house that I built right because I feel organically weakened so we actually are bringing on some investors right now. Okay so we we have opened that like twenty five percent of our company we we opened up on the on the down low but I guess it's not on the mark the perfect number one i. I have a few more than willing show tomorrow. Might do it. So so and I'm a big fan of the profit with Marcus Marcus. I've actually reached out to him to So I would agree to do something with someone. They could take us further But there's there's got to be a give as well as a taste. Can I think I'm more inclined like the Marcus La- Mona's because he you can also get you into a lot of different markets and sectors then than we would even think but We have opened it up. We actually brought on some investors has already And we are in negotiations with a quite a few more and no. It's not the dollars the funding for the crowd. Finders were the the the initial is thousands so because looking at our valuation of what we see within the next five years especially with the Tequila market and we have the world's only coconut lime and we're about to expand to some other markets. So thank you. Yeah Yeah so there's a lot of stuff going on with our company and our growth in one year you know sitting back and thinking about it is and I really. Don't sit and think about it but you have to take moments to applaud yourself. Yes you do. Oh and I'll tell you this crazy it really really is. I mean we're going. And this is for the all all the entrepreneurs out there is. I've heard it all like he's crazy crazy from walking away from his job where he made six figures. Nobody's GONNA buy a coconut Lime Tequila.
