I recently joined FAVOB: Florida Association of Veteran Owned Businesses. (I am the spouse of a veteran and that qualifies me to become a member). I enjoy being part of a likeminded group of people: hard working, like to have fun, patriotic, and know that “united we stand; divided we fall.” If you are a veteran or spouse of a veteran and own your business I hope you will try out FAVOB! The following is taken from the FAVOB website: WHY FAVOB Florida is home to approximately 187,000 veteran-owned businesses (VOBs) generating over $57 billion in annual revenue. FAVOB is the only Florida business organization singularly focused on advocating for and supporting VOBs to do business with each other, while creating opportunities for VOBs to do business with local government agencies and for-profit supplier diversity programs.
