Hello Wick, we appreciate you checking in man!

I often wonder just how many folks like you come through here and lurk in the background, soaking it all up and getting their start without us ever even getting to meet them. We love helping folks get this done, and I'm sure some of them never even stop by to say "thanks."

Feel free to jump in here if you hit a snag along the way. There will be somebody in here who can offer a word of help to you I'm sure.

We are glad to meet you and hope you have continued success out there.

Very cool.

Which company are you going with?

You should post a training blog, over on the training part of the forum - so those that come behind you can know what to expect.
