The GOOD NEWS is, there are no rules you must follow, obey or even care about if you are involved in LEGAL business opportunities, and offer a product or service which people pay for and the demand is strong.

Thanks Gordon,

Many of us could use some good news!

I've been overwhelmed with helping my wife take care of our now 3-month-old daughter... (Wow, I knew it was a lot of work... But we've still been overwhelmed! She is adorable though, and worth it!)

Thanks for your update!

What you're doing is what we should all be doing!

By the way, here's an interesting tidbit...

I read about an engineer in upstate NY who quit his job recently, to go into "blacksmithing"... creating his own handmade custom knives, and selling them from his website. Apparently, there's more demand than he can keep up with... He says the key is authenticity, that's what people want (and of course, make sure there's a demand for your product)...

He's been doing it as a hobby for 3 years, before "taking the plunge"...

Here's his website (for the curious)...

Best wishes,
