Ok guys. I don’t know about you, but my wife is really into subscription boxes. She has them for snacks, flowers, cosmetics, jewelry; even the dog gets one every month. So I finally found one for that prospecting guy (or gal) like me. The “Dirt of The Month Club” from Roaring Camps in Pine Grove, CA. Imagine, a bag of pay-dirt right to your door…every month.
