  1. Loved this video boss .. I’m all for trying to make a line of products that are 110% only goodness for the earth … I’m going to make you a deal if I start a new company with the goal to only make 110% goodness I’ll give you part of the company and you sir are going to be my man market guy and sell these products to everyone like you sold me the idea… I’ve had such great visions on how the world could be a better place and could turn around as fast as we have ruined it only if people would come together and unify and share … A lot of folks cannot afford quality products and food in life so not only do we need everyone to feel the same inside themselves we need people to all unify and share with each other so we can make the change for sure … I feel in my heart that it’s possible and it’s the only way possible ..I feel it will come in time it’s only inevitable, I just hope there’s enough time to save it when folks finally realize and come together.. I really appreciate the work you are doing on a super deep level , thank you! And keep it up and moving forward I cannot wait to see the ‘real’sults In the future… My name is nic would love any good links or info u have I heard you mention you did other talk on similar things… Email farmbuds@hotmail.com thank again you a very inspiring person and really easy to listen to..
