Thousands for interior decor and wife is an interior decorator. Don’t need to draw me a picture. Took the business and picked it clean. What a legacy! The Truth Manlove is smack dab in the middle of a 21 million lawsuit. He is alleged to have breached his corporate duties as a CEO and breach of his fiduciary responsibility to protect this 100% employee owned business. He went back to school (paid for all inclusively by Vanns) because he was planning on leaving the company and find another exceutive job once he graduated. He took advantage of his job position, his father-in-laws trust and thousands of industry manufacturers and thousands of customers and the employees stock plan. He burned through 8 million in cash reserves in a few years by crazy non approved ventures and bankrupted the company. Hall of Fame? more like the "Hall of Shame"
