    Hey guys, I am flying out of town early Tuesday morning for a job interview. There is a large Electrical Contracting firm in the midwest that is interested in having me start up and operate a lighting division for them. They see the potential revenue of a specialized division for limited energy applications and realize that this is something they can no longer afford to ignore. They have told me they are wanting to make a huge advertising push this year and gain market dominance in the landscape lighting industry in their area. So, I guess I will see what they have in mind.
    Advantages I see are:
    -They have a great name in their community and a very deep past customer list to go back and advertise in.
    -(not sure yet), but they seem very well funded and operate an already very successful Elecrical contracting and service company.
    -They are in a large metropolitan area with a much larger potential customer base than I could hope for here where I live.
    -They are chomping at the bit excited to get this going and to make it ultra successful. After talking to the owner, it seems we share a common vision for what is possible and where this thing could go which is a definite plus.

    If it looks like it is going to be financially advantageous for both parties, I might make the move. We'll see. I am not overly excited about moving my family, but this could be a one of kind opportunity.

    Well, I havn't taken it yet. Tomorrow is as much an interview for them as it is for me. It sounds like they have been beating the brush pretty hard around there looking for the right person. How has the local economy been around there for you? It seems you all are faring much better than in my neck of the woods.
