    EXECUTION Tightarse - From $70 to $35,000

    I think in a lot of industries businesses get used to the norm, if its always been that way then why change it right?

    EXECUTION Tightarse - From $70 to $35,000

    Hi Richard, Thanks man, long ways to go just yet. I found a manufacturer who made the product i wanted, then requested small changes specific to my market so i could differentiate my product enough. The cost to make these changes was nil, and as far as bringing the cost of the product down...
