Thanks for the positive feedback, Bob & Klaus.
I barely have time to read any of the emails I get these days and am unsubscribing from 95% of the stuff I receive.
If it's from associations, it's usually just begging for money or more of someone patting themselves on the back for being general aviations next savior superstar.
At the end of the day it's always about making money, so I am strategically erasing things from my life that don't either benefit my business or contribute to the bottom line.
So far the mix between the magazine and the consulting work pays the bills and that is the only and sole reason I do it.
I'll leave the knitting to those who feed the sheep and in return get a cheap buy in on the wool. All of the 3-4 letter alphabet soup groups do a good job at this, no need for me to waste my time.
