    You're welcome. Have you joined ALMA yet? I am gathering a group a New Jersey members to have a roundtable meeting in the Toms River area in the next couple of weeks. It will be real informative.

    Not yet, but I did browse the site after watching the video. It seems like a great resource with a lot to offer. If that video is any indication of the type of information available to members, it seems well worth the membership fees. Truth is, I'm not in business yet. I'm still just a wannabe trying to learn as much about the business as I can before actually jumping in. Good luck with the roundtable and thanks again for sharing that video.

    good video. But the man hour rate in CT is much higher then that. I would be living in a cardboard box at those rates.. hahah

    Thanks guys. JP, don't get hung up on what the manhour rate is in your area. It's only about what YOURS IS. Where you live has no relevance...I promise you that. I'm going to give you guys another video shortly that will explain that.

    Maybe some videos on new business starting, like how to find your work, marketing strategies, customer relation ship, idk, basic stuff about new businesses.

    Everything we have at ALMA addresses all of those issues in a regular basis. A premium membership is really cheap and I think you will get a lot out of it. You really should try it.
