How can the future owner improve this business?

Marketing, marketing, marketing. I am an operations person and relied on my children to handle the marketing which worked for a very short time. Collaboration with bloggers and subscription promotion sites as well as a better social media marketing plan (FB, IG, SC, YT, etc.). Also the future owner could chose to bring the monthly kitting in-house to reduce expenses and increase margins.

Why are you selling this business?

I had bought this business for myself and my wife to run but other projects have come up and I need to spend more time with them.
