Just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for everything I have learned from this forum. In addition I would like to contribute and become a more active member. So here goes. I am a successful offline entrepreneur since 1998 during this time I have developed two excellent and profitable business in the two toughest business in the world restaurants and construction. Construction has and always will be a hobby as I love building and being able to stamp my name on it after it is built. The restaurants were more of an investment and I did not enjoy them as much as construction. I live in New Orleans and owed 13 restaurants in the state before hurricane Katrina hit, which changed everyone's life. So as you can say hurricane Katrina made the restaurant business very difficult as 12 out of my 13 stores were destroyed, it pretty much wiped me out I lost over $2 million dollars in various projects and investments. "They" (has anyone figured out who this is?) always told me to diversify and I did. My brothers and I owned restaurants, houses, rental property, commercial property, we were investors in several local businesses. The problem we had was that every single one was affected by Katrina so thanks to "They" for not telling us diversification should include different geographical locations. Fortunately, my brother and I also loved doing construction and after Katrina it was very profitable and work was plentiful. In 6 years we have been able to make enough money that we are talking about "retiring" and only taking on projects that we truly would love to do. But we are both relatively young and need another challenge and somehow we both get pulled to the internet marketing business. So it has brought me here and feel like in my short time I have learned so much from you guys that it is time to give back. I am here for anyone to ask me anything about running a business, partners, dealing with crisis, anything you need to help start a business, unpaid legal advice (I am not an attorney but have paid enough to them that I could have my own degree several times over). As you can see we have pretty much run the gamut and have seen the highest highs and the lowest lows. Anything you got shoot it my way and will help if I can you can pm me as well. Thanks again BHW!!!
