another spam mail came today informing me that my biz just can't s*ck enough, i'm being held hostage to it, and need to break free via their extra special course tailored to creating a silk purse turn about of my sow's ear biz skills

of course, these folks who obviously can't do/teach are 110% right

i'm an ugly old crumendgon with a pretzel for a back, meathooks for hands, spent so much time standing on my head in crawlspaces that my feet smell, and my nose runs

i believe in a day's work, for a day's dollar, early to bed/rise , healthy wealthy wise

my contractual skills amount to no more than a handshake & good eye contact many days

i like to get dirty, and i play rough too

obviously , after 1/4 century in this trade , i'm in need of this electrical charm school they're peddaling eh?

A quick visit, guess ya have to 'join' to see the forums...

'Pricing' may be interesting? Expert replys??

After my recent bout with some darn virus/malware/adware whatever....I'm skeptical of where I go on the net.

It's the old ESI emails doing the rounds again, eh?
People like this are best left to their own devices.
They might be able to "help" you, but they will take a cut in your earnings.
Guy over here signed up to them, he is struggling to keep his business after they upped their take from his business.
Nothing but scammers IMHO.
Only the weak business-man would need clowns like this crowd. mad

One of the masters i worked for as an apprentice told me decades ago >
