Melvin Price is the Real thing. A hard-working, humble, relatable giant of a man, he makes everyone around him feel at ease. While he towers over most people, he is grounded, honest, and friendly. And he has a great idea.
Several years of work (and a significant set back) have led him to the "ready for investment" stage of the building of his business. His idea has potential, but it is worth listening to the man to learn about dealing with mistakes, learning, and knowing when and how to pivot. We could go on and on about Melvin... but maybe you should listen to him...
