Momentum

Hi everyone. Almost back-to-school time.

Just a quick note...THINGS ARE PICKING UP.

New subscribers…and companies now posting jobs. (I’ve done LOTS of marketing! It’s slow but it’s a start.)

Members posting opportunities. WE NEED MORE OF THAT! And we need for companies you know of to post gigs, too.

PLEASE NOTE A MAJOR CHANGE: There are no more community leads. Now, if you find a job or have a job for someone, just post in the job boards. It’s easier…I will be making more adjustments in time.

We are getting there.

Thanks for riding along.
