  • It goes to show that any ecommerce niche, no matter how small, stands to be profitable if you work at it for a while.

  • The best part of the show: When Terry asks Lloyd: “Do you guys just go to events and throw condoms at people?” when referring to his gorilla marketing tactics. LOL.

    • Before the call, Lloyd mentioned how at red lights he would get out throw condoms into people’s cars before driving off – LOL.

  • I have to say this is one of the best brand names I’ve seen. Love the logo too. It is definitely something you won’t soon forget.
