I am often asked: "How did you come up with the idea for Versacarry®?" Oddly, I owe the creative spark to a fire in June of 2010 that took my home and all my belongings.
I was shocked that everything I owned was now a pile of rubble in a blackened hole. Thankfully, my younger brother and I were not home sleeping when the fire broke out. I will forever be grateful that we were both up and out of the house early that day. But unfortunately, my German Shepherd was at home, and I lost her.
The day my house burned down, it was pouring rain, and as I watched the firefighters try to stop the blaze, I can remember how ironic it was to have everything burning up on a day it was pouring rain. Sadly, neither the firefighters nor the storm could stop the spread of the fire to the rest of the property. As a result, everything I owned was a total and complete loss.
