The last 4 months have been rough.
Rough for our customers, rough for our country, rough for us.
There has been a significant amount of uncertainty.
Our focus here at OTG, has been to stay positive and not get wrapped up in the fear.
There were times when we thought we were not going to make it.
We lost our warehouse, we delayed a lease signing of a new location, we had a month gap in which we couldn't ship anything, causing us to turn off all advertising and lose a majority of our cash flow.
But we choose to believe that we AND our country will prevail and will be stronger because of this.
Those who weather the storm AND NOT GIVE UP will recover.
I can't help but think about the scene in Forrest Gump when all the shrimp'n boats were destroyed in a big storm, except for the Bubba Gump boat.
It was because they stayed out at sea that they prevailed. Click below to watch the scene.
We have stayed out at sea and continue to push forward, just today we wrote two new PO's for future product putting us on the hook for more $$.
We have a mission and a vision and we are not putting that on hold because of some rough waters.
We heard some of the stimulus checks were starting to roll through... please if you need them for your bills obviously take care of your families.
If you have any left-over consider supporting any small business, they need you right now.
We, unfortunately, are "too small" for the fed's PPP loan program, long story, but we may not get any assistance during this time and know that there are many other small businesses in the same boat.
If you haven't seen already, we have put all our most popular products on sale to help out on our end.
Thank you for your support during this time.
P.S. Thunderbolt Shirt Preorder is currently live & Trailblazer 4.0 / 4.1 and Trailblazer Pro preorders will start in the next week.
