The perfect prospect…

If you could ask for the perfect prospect, who would you ask for?

Pick five characteristics that you believe matter most. Consider the reason you signed up, or any other characteristics you believe a person must possess to make it in NM.

I’ll start.

1. Someone who wants a business of their own. (However, remember good intentions are just that – good intentions. And talk is just that. But let’s imagine someone who really DOES want a business of their own, and will do some work and spend some money to get it off the ground.)

  • Su and Karen,

    In the future, you may want to put a link in your post or sign in as “Other” at the bottom and put your website address in there instead of just your name.

    If you have an iGaggle profile, you could put that link in there.

    Even if the perfect person for either of you were reading these comments, they would have no way to contact you.

    Just a thought.

    Have a great day!!
