"The CEO of Silver Oak Wine Breaks Down a Winning Ecommerce Strategy All Entrepreneurs Can Use"
* "As a starting point when you’re thinking about DTC, the product should stay with you throughout the experience. You may find that your experience concept doesn’t lend itself to the product doing this, which is a good sign you’re forgetting what the experience is supposed to be about.

Our present leaders, the products of a politicized and failing education system, seem to know nothing of those truths. Pulling the country back from the abyss will require a recalling of our civilizational inheritance.
