    Damnit! Have a business my wife

    and I started 8 years ago out of our garage. Saw it grow extremely fast, at one point in 2012 had a $20m+ valuation and an offer from a VC firm for $10M and turned it down. We worked extremely hard, 14 hour days to make the business a multi million dollar success. We had it all...
