Partnering with Stephan was one of those instances where you had the opportunity to work with somebody who had successfully built the same business three other times. His reputation, his knowledge, and historical success made it easy to get excited about working with him. The one unusual aspect was that his son, Aaron, was also involved in the business. That led us to ask whether it was designed to be a lifestyle business. But, we soon found that was not the case, and were super impressed with Aaron, especially with how hard he worked. There was a commitment by both of them that Merlin was going to be a success, that failure was not an option.
