/me slaps girlie with a dead fish.
Lets see coast to coast with gas prices as high as $5.85 a gallon in places. Loss if income.. Umm Yea seems like a goo idea to me. Damn women!
Here is an idea.. Do what I did. You have VNC web design, take it more seriously. I went around to local resturants where electricians, constructions workers and such frequent. I put up flyers for all services I offer, web design, Database design, Logo design, consultation, Intranet, Security, PC optimization.
I have generated enough money off of this to save my ass a few times. Look into your local SBC. Not telcom company, Small Business center. In Maryland they have tons of free shit to help you get your company up and running. Help with Business plan, marketing plan, Group meetings of other small companis(I got business from the meetings)
Basically, you have the skills many smal companies are looking for but can't affor to pay to going rate. You get them to be reasonable on expectations and you charge reasonable rates. I think after the PM this is your ideal next step actually. If you want I can let you know all the things I have done. What has worked, what hasn't.
