Well, I know that I'm relatively new around here but I am excited to announce that I am going full-time into this business. I put my notice in at my job and my last day is Feb. 7th. Very, very, VERY scary but a must do if this monster that I've created is going to be sucessful.

So, if anyone has any adivse go ahead...shoot! If I disappear completely from the board you'll know that I had to go get a job slingin' beers at the local pub...

Happiman,

Good luck. If you're married, keep your wife informed and up to date. Expect to starve a year or two. Set a high standard of work and business ethics and never waiver, even if it seems easier.

There will be times when you're ready to quit, but never give up, the rewards down the road are worth it.

Bob
