Clay is definitely more the silent backer type so even if you looked into the company you wouldn’t know he owns it since he mostly does the business meetings and back end of it. He’s not the type to be in the public eye so even if he delivered a case of liquor you won’t know he owns the company. But over all that idea can work since he owns a ranch and a ton of land which can open up different avenues later.
You can go ahead with the starter if you want I’m good with the idea. Might or might not be slow to reply not feeling the best today.
