    Hey guys!

    Just a friendly headsup, and really a bit of bragging on my part-I've got my father on "pay-roll" persay, coding a few things for a membership program I'll be launching (here) in the next few weeks. I wont say much on that now, but I just thought I'd let everyone know another member of the "Cashcorp" clan will soon (hopefully) be a very active member of BHW.

    The man spent 20 years working in a factory welding parts, and roughly 3 years ago his factory was closed due to NAFTA. His company moved all there production plants overseas;when his factory was shutdown he was given 2 options- #1:Get his severance and all the money from his retirement fund or #2:Get a full scholarship to college, and $200 a week to live on.

    Its been very difficult for him, and Im immensely proud-He will be graduating at the top of his class this coming fall.

    Hes got several job offers on the table already, but he really wants to "go into business for himself"

    Up until this point I could never get him into any marketing, or really anything online-but the government program that pays him his $200 every week-well they pull the plug 2 months before he graduates. On top of it all, he is ineligible for that money if he has a job or income of any kind;so hes finally legally able to get into all of this.

    I hope you all welcome him very warmly, Im pretty excited myself to have my own father working alongside me (well hes 2000 miles away, but you know what I mean)

    -Cashcorp

    Kudos to your dad. Very cool that he decided to go back to school, even cooler that he's going to graduate.

    My dad has been retired as an attorney for the past 3 years and is bored out of his gourd. I too have convinced him to join me in a few of my projects, and will be working with him online from now on.

    Go Dads!

    :D

    That is a great idea Cashcorp. Congratulations to your dad as well by going back to college later in life. Hope you both thrive and prosper in your business ventures.

    I am doing it the other way around. My kids are finally getting old enough to work with me. :)

    Very nice man! Sharing the knowledge. I actually considered bringing my dad into internet marketing and decided against it.. He doesnt even own a computer. That would have been a rest-of-life project.
