Prospect, KY (May 15, 2002) - Victims Assistance of America, Inc (VAA)
-- Three members of the VAA board of directors are setting up the nations first franchised brokerage business to help finance the VAA identity theft cause. We all know how focused and motivated the president, Martha Steimel is (after dealing with a 10 year long problem herself).
Well, meet her three sons! Dan Steimel, vice-president of VAA is a 24 year old law student at Vanderbilt University. He was top in sales in the country for MCI WorldCom as a high school student. They opened a branch for him in Lexington when he told them he had to go out of town to college. He will be the sales end of the franchise operation.
His twin 22 year old brothers, Jon and Ben are students at the University of Kentucky. (One in Finance, one in Business Management). The twins have actually set up the whole franchise operation with the help of the past Stuart Handmaker (of Seiller and Handmaker Law firm in Louisville). When they found they needed $35,000 to finance the writing of the UFOC agreement (thats the Uniform Franchise Offering Circular) their plans came to a holding pattern. At this time they seek a financial third person to step in and help with the project.
Once they get over that hurdle, it should be smooth sailing. Theyve got a back office operation in place and expect to have high interest from banks who dont yet have a brokerage division and also individual brokers who would like to be on their own. As their Mom steps down from the presidency to take on the executive directors position it should then be no conflict for her to act as advisory consultant for their new firm.
When the three saw how focused and dedicated their Mom was to setting up this national organization they wanted to do something to help. So, not only did they all three ask to be active board members they also wanted to put together something that has a good potential of helping to fund a huge expensive national organization. If you consider their ages and the fact that their Mom had a 10 year long problem as a single parent that ended six years ago; that puts them at six, six, and eight years of age when it started and sixteen, sixteen, and eighteen years of age as it came to an end. They were never aware of the problem till they reached their teen years and then it was hard for her to cover it up from them any longer. They saw a lot and want to help now in any way that they can!
