    RSA Rockstars: Jerrod Young at Columbus Mattress Wholesale

    RSA Rockstars: Jerrod Young at Columbus Mattress Wholesale

    Despite what those outside the industry might think, to say RSAs are the backbone of the home furnishings retail would be an understatement.

    They are the ones spearheading the sales, talking to and learning about customers. They train and memorize product details, brand names, and SKUs, all while offering service with a smile.

    At The FAM, we have mad respect for RSA, so we decided to talk to RSAs and see what sage advice they have as soldiers on the front line.

    How Will Inflation Affect HENRYs?

    How Will Inflation Affect HENRYs?

    HENRYs — high earners, not yet rich — is a marketing term coined in 2003 to describe families earning between $250,000 and $500,000, but not having much left after taxes, schooling, housing, and other costs.
