My purpose for all of this is twofold. One, to help you all to become a little more familiar with who Harold actually is, and the kind of person he is. Another, is to explain what I feel this company is truly about. We have never set out to simply just make a product, sell a product, and make money off a product. Sure, making money is good, but that has never been the ultimate goal for us, as odd as that may sound. We have had several opportunities in the past to do just that but held to our beliefs and chose the harder path. Our real purpose is actually much simpler. Our main goal has always been to simply help others - that why this product was created. Every step of the way has always just been a friend helping a friend. This purpose actually extends much further than just customers, for us. We personally know how hard life can be sometimes. We all have struggles. Once we ended our contact with the last sales/marketing/distributing group, it gave us the opportunity to sit back and re-evaluate where we wanted this company to go, and how we would like it to grow. What we decided to do was actually what we had been doing all along - simply help others. What better way to grow our business and sell our products than allowing people we know, trust, and love be the representatives of our company out in the field; and at the same time allowing them the opportunity to see success as well. A friend helping a friend. We, as a company, not only have a chance to help the customers who buy our products, we also have the opportunity to help each other. This motivates me more than anything else! I couldn't have chosen better people to take this adventure with. You all understand what family is and what is truly means to help people. I consider and love you all like family. I want you all to approach your potential customers with this mindset. I want you to seek to help others.
You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position, so that I could save the lives of many people.
Everything happens for a reason, even something that was supposed to be used to harm us can be turned around for our benefit. If Harold had not been in an accident, they may not have found his cancer in time. If it wasn't for the back injury, he wouldn't have had the need for a lower sitting vehicle. If it wasn't for a friend helping a friend, he never would have taken up beekeeping. If it wasn't for beekeeping, he never would have known the life altering benefits of a bee sting. If it wasn't for a friend helping a friend, we wouldn't have Harold's Famous Bee Cream.
