The conversation delves into various aspects of the topic, shedding light on the benefits and challenges of starting self-manufacturing, as well as the advantages of sourcing products locally.


David emphasizes the benefits of sourcing products locally or within the USA, such as supporting domestic industries, reducing shipping costs, and fostering a sense of community and trust.The conversation explores the idea that a hybrid approach, which combines self-manufacturing with selective outsourcing for specific components, can offer the best of both worlds.
