    Sorry for the long winded story.
    So heres the deal I was at the Pub last night for Tuesday night poker last night with my wife. There are the usual regulars and 2 new guys. One of them is sitting next to me Pounding the drinks tipping big to the waitress buying shots for the table.....YA one of those guys ....oh and giving his chips away every hand. He gets going on telling me he is this Internet guru blah blah blah. As the night goes on He tells me he just built this WordPress site and how great it is...I'm like oh ya thats cool just letting him go on and on not leading him into what my passion and hobby is. My wife is sitting there smirking and rolling her eyes once in a while. I'm a quiet guy keep to myself most of the time and look pissed off all the time(so the wife says) So after a few beers my self I asked him what template he used or did you use some custom css,php and js. He looked confused....lol. I asked him what his domain was so I could check it out and he gave me a speach that went like ...well its not done yet I have some tweeking to do I let ya know when its done.......Ya right ok then buddy. So he pisses his chips away short time after and says good night and leaves. On our way home my wife says why don't you get into web stuff and start a business and work from home as I'm laid off right now ...I'm thinking ya maybe we will see. I get up this morning and the guy found me on Facebook and sent me a message I'm like WTF so I rush getting the kids off to school. Get back and read
    "Hey Chris nice playing poker with you last night seems you know about web design are you familiar with SEO. What sites have you built with SEO?:eek: Let me know I have some work to be done. If I like what I see I have work for you have a great day. Steve"

    First off .....I didn't say sweet FA to this guy except ask him a couple questions bout coding.
    This is a hobby for me I have made some web sites for friends and thats about it.
    I'm electronics tech and welder by trade. I don't consider myself Designer, Programmer, SEO Pro specialist either.
    So after sleeping on my wifes suggestion I'm thinking maybe this is a route for a new career. From a family stand point working from home this would work good for us. I'm not afraid to work or study hard. This is something I could really put my head down and get going on. Should go after this guy and nail down some work for myself. I don't think this guy is blowing smoke up my A$$ as he went out of his way to find me. It seems He has $ to spend.
    I don't have anything to show him except for the sites I have done. I don't have ANY SEO projects to reference too. I don't know much about the "business" side of SEO or web design for that matter. I know what to do and has to be done. But what are the rates whats the SEO business model. Do you guys use contracts? Where do I start....HELP
