Why do you want to represent Kimes Ranch?

I want to represent Kimes Ranch because I have always been a supporter of companies who started with little to nothing and grow into a successful company through any hard times, trails, and tribulations. It's my belief that if someone can grow a company successfully through hard times, they are someone who can help me grow as a individual to be better, and I want to be apart of that company to help them grow to become an even better as well.
