    Hi Dave

    Nice start to your series. I have to say from my own side it was very heart warming and authentic.

    Beaver builder has been a massive blessing to my business, I was a hands on coder as well before beaver builder. After beaver builder came into our agency, our business has literally exploded. We average about 2 -3 jobs a month. We know have at least 10 to 15 at any given time that we are working on. Our income has basically quadrupled and the demand for our services increased.

    The product just keeps getting better and better. Like you said it’s a little unnatural but I am a diehard fan for a piece of software. I also tend to right click and see what the source code is built on. 🙂 I come from South Africa so my first purchase of $199 dollars for beaver builder pro was a big leap it’s a lot of money from where I come from. But the value in time saved, production increase, client happiness and ease of use makes it the single best investment I have made in my business. I always make sure I have enough dollars around on renewal periods as it is way too valuable to not have.

    Just a shout out to Robby, Justin and Billy (+ Brett for the new changes coming soon soo exiting). Bless you, guys for making such an amazing product, that has literally changed lives. And Dave thanks for the community that is so helpful and saved me hours of looking for answers to problems from time to time.

    I salute you guys. #respect
