I've been at this business building thing for 12 years now, been screwed by a fair amount of people, but for some reasons Henning Nordanger's manipulation of my generosity and then the poaching of my #1 guy to help him at his new enterprise, really wedged deep in my crawl. I think the growth of Catskill Farms blinds people to the day to day effort it takes, and some folks think that to borrow a little here, and take a little there seems without harm to us as a company - but it is harmful, I have just learned to navigate each and every daily avalanche that comes our way.
Even with a lenient landlord and a full support of the cool crowd, he couldn't make a go of it.
Full circle baby, full circle. Moving on.
