    Hello BHW! I'm writing to tell you about a discovery that I made. I'm bilingual, fluent in both Spanish and English. I live in a state that has a lot of Hispanic businesses.. Recently I've been going to a lot of Hispanic businesses and using their services, getting hair cuts, getting my car fixed, eating at their restaurants, etc. At any rate, I said to myself, "this is a wonderful moment to pitch them a website." The result is that I ended up getting two good leads. One was from a guy who overheard me talking about it at the barbershop. Another was from a mechanic.

    I was amazed at the fact that a lot of these businesses really don't have websites. It's really an untapped market. So if you're in a multicultural area such as New York or Miami, you should put your dormant skills to good use! You could even upsell them by translating their content from their native language to English! So put your High School Spanish skills to good use or download Rosetta Stone, because you're really missing out on a huge chunk of money!!

    I'm pretty sure you are right... I've myself been thinking for a long time to exploit my native French
