THANK YOU EVERYONE for another successful Live Sale. Some of you know but most of you probably do not... Our business is a VERY SMALL business. A true family owned and operated business. We are a family of four humans (2 adults, a 7 year old girl and 4 year old boy), 3 dogs (all doodles), 1 cat, 17 chickens, and whatever else decides to stop in on occasion. Whenever you make a purchase from us, you really are supporting a "SMALL" business. Additionally, we are one of the "O.G." members/sponsors here on R2R. We started in December 2010 and have been here ever since. In the beginning, 90% of our sales were driven by R2R members/sales. We are also one of the few original "Live Sale" contributors. The original group of us (Cherry Corals, WWC, Sexy Corals, Joe Knows Reefs) somewhat pioneered the idea and concept of a "Live Sale". We worked together and pretty much had any date we wanted at our disposal. As R2R membership and sponsorships grew, we began to work with R2R to coordinate a calendar that would work for everyone. At that time, there were probably only 10 "Live Sales" per year, maybe less! On one occasion we actually crashed the R2R site AND our website - that was fun! Anyways, I digress.... The point being that we are a small business and you guys have been gracious enough to support us over the years and allow me to do what I love while supporting a growing family at the same time. Sooooo....I say again....THANK YOU!!!!
I would also like to thank the many friends and supporters that always lend a hand to help out our business. With being a true small business, I am usually a "one man show". However, there are many times when I need the help of a great friend. Great friendships and the time donated by those friends have allowed Joe Knows Reefs to grow into what we are today. Thank you to Jay O'Rourke and Sean Richardson and Greg Caudill and Heath Thompson and Chad Millward and Scott Dangerfield and Lisa Trill and Mike Bryant and Steve Connor and MY WIFE and MANY MANY others!!! This past year we made the difficult decision to permanently close our brick and mortar walk in retail location. After the completion of a 1,600 sq ft stick built building IN MY BACKYARD, we moved into in January. We now operate 100% online only. Most of our livestock offerings are grown IN HOUSE. I AM LIVING THE DREAM! So, THANK YOU!!!
