Thumbs up VAF Anniversary

Today makes 13 years since I bet the family farm on VAF as my full time job. In 2007 when I took this leap, I had no idea 2008 would carry with it such an economic downturn. "Surely that won't happen again", I said to myself confidently.

Enter 2020 <grin>. And stop calling me Shirley.

Hang tough everyone, thanks for supporting this small biz and its advertisers, and stay safe. We'll get through it.

v/r,
dr

Default Congrats

Congratulations on 13 years.
Could not have done it without you. No seriously.
Without this site, I would be covered in wood dust and fabric.
Thanks for all.

Default HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!

Can't believe it's that long since you went full time!!??

I DO remember the "old" chat forum before that when I was still selling RV Insurance!

Wasn't that like 20 years ago now?

Best wishes to you and the family, here's to another 20 at least!!
