Re: General Business

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If I were to hire someone (Option 3 - the least attractive), I would need to
hire experienced people. While I have hired inexperienced people in the past
and trained them, The University of Bill Allen is now closed. At this point
in my life, I am only interested in doing a good job and making money.

Thanks for the reply,
Bill
