Relationship to REV
In 2017 Robb H. and Robb B. met at a early morning bible study in Edina, MN. The two men quickly learned that not only did they share a first name with an unusual spelling, but they also had many other things in common. Both were married to women with the first name Pamela and both of their families had just been through a life threatening/changing battle with cancer where God had provided a miraculous outcome. The final common thread was their shared passion for people and business. Robb B. and REV were just emerging in a world that Robb H. had been thriving in for over 25 years.
