Are there any REAL offline biz owners in here?

24 replies

As the title suggests, I was just wondering if there were any real offline biz owners hanging out in this sub forum, or whether it's all marketers?

      Please oh please tell me you have a web site. THAT would be AWESOME!

      PM me a link!

      I told y'all I'm a redneck!

      And just in case anyone is wondering. Those of us with a smaller flock, tend to be dumb nuts and build a coup away from the house. Come winter when they need a bit more tending, and you are walking an acre over in 10 degree weather it uh SUCKS!

      MOBILE would be S A WEET

    I am also a partner in a compliance training course for debt collectors.

    There are a couple of others, but those are the big offline ones.
