After doing lots of homework, we have decided to use SolarCity
Shotts Beverage Corp has been years in the making, and may take a few more before our opening. Detroit will be the first location. What will make us unique will be our leadership employment community interaction, use of solar technology, pay it forward small business program, community youth robotics workshop and selected beverage products. We believe the future of industry is community building.
Yes I still believe if we build or create a quality product people will select the better over the cheaper. Money people ( those with the capital willing to invest ) look at time of return and profit, and they like it short and fat.( short timeline with high return )
As I listen to their advice on what they believe the best direction regarding the business of Shotts should be. I became aware that I need to change my dream of bottling and distributing, which are labour intensive, and focus more on marketing existing product with concepts delivered via technology, and avoid labour intensive areas that cause capital burn with limited or negative return.
Money people are not evil. I have discovered that they have a deep understanding of the human animal. One type of person they described seeks money to buy things and exist, they’re believed to not understand the function of money. Investing in a project that employs this person will lead to loss of investment. Money likes technology, real estate, education, bio research and anything that can be used by people. But is afraid of anything that involves the high cost of employing labour.
This is my understanding of the conversations I had. The changes that will follow is based on those conversations along with the financial commitment.
We are still pushing ahead, and at times it seems as if we are not getting any closer, but we are. While talking with member of the beverage industry you discover it is not much different from any other industry or business, most believe they don’t have to change or innovate until the change starts affecting their sales.
We have come to agreement with some companies and are working towards a plan of bottling our own product as part of a youth training and employment project.
The next update will offer the youth project plan and some product information.
