Well, I've been a member for awhile now, and have been learning from all of you, and very much enjoy the site. Significantly more professional and respectful here, than another forum down the web.

I've worked in Corporate America for the past 40+ years, and have once again experienced reduction in force/down sizing - due mostly to a merger, but am certainly being affected by the economy. So, my wife and I are taking my own advice (given to others), that if you can't beat them, join them.

I have a good marketing plan that is very targeted; a great prospecting list; and the desire to be successful (after being self employed - both successfully and unsuccessfully several times).

What I have is listed in my signature, and our direct efforts start in several weeks. That's my story, and thanks once again for all the great items and knowledge that I've found here.

Watch the papers in that area. There are always lawn contracts offered from the gov. in that area in the paper. If you have your business in your wife's name you could probably land a few. Ps. if you have any questions PM me I'm only three hours from you.
