Hello FD Friends,

Thank you all for the your input and the great collaboration
recommendations you gave for my long drive. I have put together a list of
the recommended resources, so if you are interested you can reference in
the future. Now, I am going to post this to another group I belong to see
if I can get them free or reduced price. The book I should write is called
"The StartUp:Ghetto Style"!

Thanks again, Karen the Badass Conqueror
