      Hi, Wesman Todd Shaw, Im glad you got something out of this article. You will diffently be better off having your own business and being your own boss! (If I remember correctly, you were one of those individuals with many passions & ever-growing interests....?

      My advice to you would be to invest some of your quality time in brainstorming, than further brainstorming, create a concept, and action it...just do it! what do you have to loose, better than working for someone else =)

      I like your ideas. I only need to get to where I can do something with what I've got. I'm not good with bosses, and I basically hate every corporation known to man.
